Week of May 10, 2006
ARIES (Mar. 20 - Apr. 20) Your sense of humor will take you far this week, so remember to laugh at things rather than holding on tighter and tighter and getting more and more attached. It is impossible to receive from the Universe if your hands are tightly grasped onto something. Learning to laugh at our own quirks and the quirks of others is one of the best gifts we can give ourselves. Lighten up and remember to laugh.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 21) Things are moving as fast as they possibly can, whether you think so or not. This would be a good time to really get into telling the truth — you know the WHOLE truth. Express all that is going on inside you from beginning to end and remember that things are on schedule, the Universe's schedule, and it is not necessary to push anything.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 22) Lighten up! Remember to touch things lightly and keep on moving. Enjoy yourself and make sure you take time out to play. Nothing bums out a Gemini more than forgetting to have fun. Make a point of it! Be social this week — you enjoy yourself when you go out and you just may meet someone who will be very beneficial some time down the road.
CANCER (June 22 - July 23) It may seem that everyone around you is moving forward and you are being left behind, but this is not the case. Any delays happening now are really for your benefit. Don't compare yourself to others, everyone has their own destiny and karma and what may seem like others being "ahead" of you is simply a reflection that others are not going to the same place you are. Allow the delays to be what they are and don't try forcing anything.
LEO (July 23 - Aug. 23) Avoid negativity at any cost this week. Don't get sucked into other people's negative spin on things. Try to figure out a way to catch yourself when it comes to getting negative and choose to think about something else or think about things in a different way. Optimism may be hard to come by this week, mostly because of other people's input, yet optimism is where you need to keep your head.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23) This week marks a time when you may be able to truly feel how safe you really are. It has most likely been a long journey to this safe place, so enjoy it and take advantage of it. Give birth and bring out different parts of yourself that until now it may not have been safe enough to express. A Scorpio woman may have a key role in this birthing process.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23) A new journey has begun and there is no turning back. Know that your life is moving in a new direction and know that there is a greater hand than yours leading the way. Mostly this journey is taking you to a place where you can change your style and express yourself differently, so go for it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 22) Peace of mind needs to be the goal. It is one of the only goals worth working toward. If you need to make some important choices right now, then choose what will enhance your peace of mind, rather than something that will only complicate things further. If you need to remove yourself from a situation to maintain your peace, then do it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21) Change is in the air. The opportunity is here for you to make changes in a balanced and simple way. Don't allow yourself to get too far ahead of things. There is no hurry. If you allow things to continue to change organically, you will discover that the Universe has the same goals in mind for you as you do. See yourself as a snake which is shedding its skin to become new again.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21 - Jan. 20) It may feel as if someone has re-landscaped your life while you were watching but you didn't notice how drastic the changes had been. Well, it is too late to change your mind. Rather than fighting the change or getting freaked out by how different it truly is, enjoy it. Take a bigger view of things and learn to appreciate the new view!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 19) Remember to be authentic. That is your main and probably only job right now. The authentic self does not make its choices from guilt, duty or obligation. Operating from any of those three is a keen indicator that you are not being authentic. It's not as easy as it sounds to be in your truth, yet put some effort into it and choose to live an authentic life — your authentic life.
PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20) Time to get focused. You may even want to make some lists. Don't worry, they won't be carved in stone and you can change your mind at some other point in time if you choose, but for now try to get clear about where it is you want to go from here. You don't have to do this very often because of your natural ability to go with the flow, so why not make the most of this week's energy and truly focus for a moment?
NOTE: If you were born at the end or beginning of a sign, read the sign before and after your birthday.
