Weekly Astrology Horoscope May 19-25, 2013
The Sun is just about on the cusp as the week begins finalizing his stay in Taurus, and ready to move into Gemini on Monday.
Hopefully you’ve had a chance to get in touch with your body and the earth over the past few weeks. If you haven’t had a chance to tune into the earth element to start off the season of sunshine and mother earth's glory, you should spend some time Sunday getting your hands dirty. The lilacs, apple blossoms and trees are now in bloom for your enjoyment. Breathe deeply and finalize preparing your foundation--your body--for the next phase in the astrological cycle. Monday will be a great time to start a new meditation practice ensuring your mind is present in all that you do.

With Mars still in Taurus, it’s a good time to pound the pavement, with shock absorbing sneakers of course, to expel excess energy. Squats are a good way to ground your energy.
Some of you may be noticing a resolution is happening with your finances. Taking a stand, focusing on paying down your debt, and being responsible is a lesson many have been working through. Attracting greater prosperity has everything to do with decision making and mindfulness to cause and effects. For some, it hasn’t been easy but finally payments that needed to come through have shown up. As you put your foot down and taken the steps necessary to stabilize your foundation you’ve realized that nobody is an island. How we interact with others can help all of us build a better future when we work together. By strengthening bonds, balancing giving and receiving, wants and needs are better fulfilled.
Venus is already in Gemini since May 9th, and Mercury came back home on the 15th. Now that the Sun is joining the party we’re all entering mind mode. With Neptune not in jive with planets in Gemini now, don’t expect to have major, intuitive revelations. It’s also best if you can find ways to help keep your mind be centered rather than pulled into distraction by emotions. Surrounding yourself with artful prints, colors and patterns that stimulate your mind will help boost your mental alertness and attentiveness. Choose lively colors when you’re feeling listless, like yellows and oranges, and calming aqua blues and greens to rest and relax the mind. Your environment affects your thought processes.
As I write this, we just had an earthquake as the Sun prepares to move out of earthy Taurus. Since it was minor with no major damage, instead of being scary it was actually quite fun to gab about with friends. Expect gabbing to become more interesting as we head into Gemini, the sign of communication. These days when we think of communication it’s usually social networking, texting and technological methods. This isn’t going to change anytime soon, but communication reaches much further than the tips of our fingers and electronic gadgets.
Real, human interaction gives us something more than technology can provide. With all our senses and the magic of life within each of us, we truly are an advanced technology ourselves. We’re super advanced, living and breathing in a 3D world with sensory stimulation galore. Yet, we do have our flaws of course.
A lot of humanities flaws have to do with our ego. The Sun symbolizes the ego--the self as an individual. It’s easy for people to see their own point of view and disregard the views of others. In fact for some it can become violent with gnashing of teeth and downright nasty gossip. But now that we’ve got Mercury and Venus getting closer together, and meeting on the 24th, hopefully we can overcome the side of our egos that separate us, and have a meeting of the minds that are more gentle, respectful and even loving. Seeing eye to eye will be an important resolution for many this week. If you’re trapped in an argument that is draining the very life out of you, let it go for a higher understanding.
Mercury is the messenger of the gods; Venus is the goddess of love. That’s something to look forward to. Both Mercury and Venus will be having a nice conversation with Uranus in Aries. Spontaneous, witty conversations will raise your energy. Feel free to speak candidly,with openness and honesty to clear your mind.
The Lunar Eclipse on Saturday, May 25 will be the third eclipse we’ve had in a month. This means the shadow of the earth will eclipse the Full Moon. It could certainly be the end of a chapter for many of you. It could be dramatic. Make sure you try your best to be conscious of the consequences. Perhaps if you decide to cut off all communication with someone, that it is the best. Or, you may finally find your prayers being answered. Synchronicity will be supercharged during this Full Moon so pay attention to deja vu, repeating words, numbers and events that happen in your life. There may be an important message you will finally get that takes you to the next level, and closes the door so another can open. If a major wake up call happens to you in the few days surrounding the Full Moon, you will have time to absorb the changes next week. The important thing to note is that this Full Moon will have a lot to do with your learning goes up a notch. The lesson will be as packed with meaningful learning for you as you’d get at the end of finishing a full-time course in university. Of course we will be talking much more about this in our Full Moon forecast coming up near the end of the week.
