The full moon Friday night occurs in sexy Scorpio, so don't be surprised if your hormones are working overtime. The party-loving Sagittarius moon doesn't clock in until Saturday afternoon, but saves its best jokes for Sunday, Mother's Day. If you're planning on making excuses, schedule them for nighttime, while Mercury is inspired by imaginative Neptune. Mercury is also crucial to what you learn, or think you hear, when the Messenger merges with the Taurus sun on Thursday.
Aries: Mar. 20 - Apr. 19
Follow a hunch or handle a current financial matter logically? It's a toss-up. While informative Mercury in your Taurus house of assets merges with the sun, you could be as smart about money as you'll need to be all year long. However, their meeting also suggests that your cosmic economic adviser is sending a messagevia a gut feeling or a voice in your headthat shouldn't be ignored. Meanwhile magnetic Venus your sign is attracting more attention than even you are used to. A distraction now, a disruption next week.
Taurus: Apr. 20 - May 20
Check the facts before you proceed any further. As the Taurus sun and Mercury approach their annual meeting on the 18th, you might need to have more papers in hand than a few birthday cards. And since both heavenly bodies are headed for your Gemini money house, it makes sense to double check the numbers as well. Career matters could take a back seat as imaginative Neptune in your midheaven turns retrograde for the next five months. Consider the retrogression permission to cruise through the summer, not to abandon ship. .
Gemini: May 21 - Jun. 20
During the next two weeks the Twins could bounce from pillar to post while your Mercury ruler makes contact with a host of planetary forces. Because of its accelerated speed, the message Mercury imparts this weekend might conflict with what you learn next weekend. So try to be even more flexible than usual and make sure that no decision is carved in stone. A heightened sensitivity to a colleague's unspoken good intentions can cost more than you intend to spend, but by Memorial Day, you'll be glad you did.
Cancer: Jun. 21 - Jul. 22
Just friends or potential lovers? It's that time of year again, those weeks when the sun adds heat to relationships with colleagues and casual acquaintances while the moon highlights romance and the risks involved. Somewhere along the way work manages to get done. Not surprising, since Venus in your Aries career house is demanding that attention be paid to the good-looking client currently calling the shots. Be aware that assertive Mars in your sign is aiming to provoke a reaction from him or her. Before long, fireworks.
Leo: Jul. 23 - Aug. 22
It seems that every sign is poised, listening with their inner ear, for the info that'll be conveyed when Mercury and your sun ruler meet on the 18th; however, the Lion should get the message loud and clear. Because this conjunction takes place in your Taurus midheaven, it's likely that instructions or, more to the point, specific orders will come down from your boss or a government official, someone with the power to affect your career. More data after the sun starts its trip through Gemini, the sign of conversation and commerce. Stay tuned.
Virgo: Aug. 23 - Sep. 22
Little Mercury is the driving force behind this week's activity, so while your ruler reaches out to almost every other planet in the solar system, you'll strengthen your connections to folks from almost every other sign. Some of the information you exchange will be positive, some provocative. Just remind yourself that because Mercury is traveling at break-neck speed, the conversation that reinforces what you're thinking one day could be your undoing a week later. Until May is history, try to allow yourself as much wiggle room as you can get away with.
Libra: Sep. 23 - Oct. 22
As luck would have it, you're the one sign this week that is off the hook. Since your Venus ruler has nothing to do with gabby Mercury, you don't have to interact with anyone you don't want to or get dragged into other people's business. This doesn't mean you won't be aware of the tension building between you, your partner and the head honcho; it's just that you can delay doing anything about it for another week. But when amenable Venus is challenged by macho Mars on the 23rd, tempers could reach the boiling point. Luckily, a quick and satisfactory resolution follows.
Scorpio: Oct. 23 - Nov. 21
While Mercury, ruler of verbal promises and written contracts, meets the productive Taurus sun in your house of significant others, the other guy, be it an ally or an antagonist, can provide whatever you need to know. This would be a good time to hire an agent or consult with an attorney because, before much longer, desirable Venus in your house of entertainment, recreation, and romance will connect with both Mars and Pluto, your co-ruling planets. Mars is in domesticated Cancer, Pluto in your Sagittarius house of money earned.1
