Weekly Horoscope Overview
Weekly Horoscopes for each Sign are listed below after the overview:
Mercury will still be in Taurus for a few more weeks encouraging us to continue having a more personal relationship with the natural world.
While Mercury is retrograde in Taurus this week, we are also asked to look more closely at our financial picture, particularly how our income and work are related to our core values.
The Sun enters Gemini on Friday May 20, 2016 at 10:36 am EDT. Multitasking becomes the norm, but with Mercury still retrograde, too many tasks can spread you too thin leading to confusion and distracted thinking. It’s easy to look at only the superficial level of subjects. If you need to have more focus, grounding practices like yoga and deep breathing can help you get centered.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius on May 21, 2016 at 5:14 pm EDT highlights the need for a more optimistic outlook in our lives. Jupiter is now direct in Virgo, and so our minds want to grow in positive ways.
Sagittarius has lots of interests and enthusiasm, but with so many choices wanting to be explored, following through to completion for each can be difficult. Being distracted is further emphasized with Mercury retrograde.
Jupiter and Mercury are both in earth signs now. If your enthusiastic ideas have your thoughts all over the place, you can settle down more easily by taking practical steps toward your hopes and wishes. Write down your ideas, and prioritize which ones you want to start working on. Practical actions can have lasting consequences and help calm distractions. Put your phone away in favor of a book.
The Moon will be meeting up with Mars and Saturn (both retrograde) in Sagittarius before the Full Moon. Motivations and responsibilities come into question. In order to have confidence when working toward your wishes, smart actions need to be taken. Are your actions setting you up for success, or are you possibly sabotaging yourself by retreating, being lazy or distracted? Are you learning what is important so that you can reach for better opportunities?
This week, the Full Moon can remind you what the big picture for your life is, and can also remind you of what hasn’t been working. Boring, repetitive work isn’t stimulating enough to feel satisfying now. To move toward the better this week, we are reminded that we need optimism, faith and inspiration to prioritize what matters. Humor and laughter help keep spirits up and set the stage for success. Smiling attracts good luck now.
Having an optimistic attitude is always a work in progress. This Full Moon reminds us that a positive approach is our own choice.
The Sun in Gemini stands across the sky from Mars in Taurus on Sunday. The ego comes into focus. Tension and stress can manifest as anger. Overthinking problems can enhance irritation. We may notice others that are excessive in their reactions reminding us of how important it is to be mindful of how our own actions have effects on those around us. Wherever you see conflict, know that intelligent choices and better efforts in communication can make all the difference. Positive feedback and encouragement improves esteem and confidence.
Mercury stations direct in Taurus at 9:20 am EDT on Sunday. The retrograde phase is over at the end of this week. We are set to move forward with greater appreciation for our relationship to the material world. From there we can make more focused decisions and do work that is better grounded and has more solid footing. With Mercury currently retrograde, be cautious of misplacing things, or having tech issues. Backups are a good idea this week.
A change of perspective is sure to find us this week. Enjoy your time getting back in touch with yourself and nature. Smarter choices for greater success are on the horizon.
