Rockie Weekly Horoscope May 19 – 25



Aries: Mar. 20 – Apr. 19

Play nice. Since Venus is not on the best of terms with your Mars ruler this weekend, don’t push your luck or insist on having it your way. However, you’ll probably discover that it makes sense to try to forge a compromise and, except for a certain amount of tension (generating a fair amount of sexual heat), to realize that it’ll work out well. The full moon in fiery Sagittarius could also get you hot and bothered, but that’s more likely to be over a money matter or a difficult choice you’re being pressured to make.

Taurus: Apr. 20 – May 20

Like your Aries neighbor, you may also be under the gun, subject to forces that are pressing too hard and fast for comfort. When militaristic Mars tests your peaceable Venus ruler this weekend, hope that the worst thing you come away with is a chip on your shoulder. That feisty attitude should be gone by the time Venus finds favor with glamorous Neptune in your career house midweek. Something quite beautiful, sweetly romantic and potentially profitable flows from this contact, especially if you’re involved in the arts.

Gemini: May 21 – Jun. 20

Pleasure-seeking Venus in your sign is attracting an assortment of planetary energies, so if your interest in one person suddenly fades, there’ll soon be another to take his or her place. When a Martian rough-and-tumble straight-shooter comes on too strong, the Neptunian aesthete will be only too happy to soothe ruffled feathers and show you the finer examples of the fine arts. Maybe take you to church, too. Around Memorial Day, Pluto in your Sag marriage house will intensify feelings, for good or for ill, about all your relationships. Be prepared.

Cancer: Jun. 21 – Jul. 22

Push may literally come to shove as the tension builds toward Monday’s full moon. No matter how many times a Moon Child rides the arc from the new moon to the full, each lunar cycle presents different challenges and resolutions. The Gemini-Sagittarius opposition zeroes in on your feelings about a romantic, recreational or creative endeavor as well as the extent of your commitment to the aims of a group. Because those two signs trade on information and insight, try to handle the matter with good humor and wordplay.

Leo: Jul. 23 – Aug. 22

Once solar Gemini begins, the pressure to succeed can lessen. Good news for Leos who relish the praise without having to work like a dog. Information you receive around the Sag full moon could have an impact on a family matter or a real estate venture. Even if such a positive prognosis seems far-fetched, because the sign of the Seer sees far into the future, it’ll probably materialize as envisioned. Because artistic, romantic Venus rewards imaginative Neptune in your marriage house on Tuesday, an ideal you’ve held on to through thick and thin might also come to pass.

Virgo: Aug. 23 – Sep. 22

There’s a chance that the August Virgin may act a bit like a lunatic — only slightly out of control, let’s hope — while the Gemini-Sagittarius full-moon axis, like a compass, points directly to your natal sun. The rest should meditate like mad, read voraciously or blog your brains out; just don’t drive. Mutable signs tend to speed up considerably when the pressures they feel compelled to escape from are being applied. Although a fair amount of thrills and chills accompany these moments, this year Mars increases the danger twofold.

Libra: Sep. 23 – Oct. 22

Some Libras will shy away from further contact; some will rush headlong toward it. Because your Venus ruler is in the sign of the Twins, one can’t predict which direction you’ll choose when aggressive Mars strides onto your scene. If you’re a dyed-in-the-wool slut or a glutton for punishment, macho Martian desire will be a welcome addition. If not, then by all means run for the arms of your present-day savior, a supersensitive, sympathetic figure who’ll come to your rescue when Neptune and Venus, the über-romantics, trine on Tuesday.

Scorpio: Oct. 23 – Nov. 21

October Scorpions could successfully resolve a money matter while the Sagittarius full moon crosses your financial axis. However, those born in November may take what happens then too personally to be objective, let alone effective. Give yourself enough time and space to consider the implications of what occurs before jumping, as is the Sagittarian wont, to conclusions. Since your Mars co-ruler drifts through your Pisces house of romance, creativity and leisure-time activity only once in two years, take as much time as you can.

Sagittarius: Nov. 22 – Dec. 21

No familiar tune to croon; the Sag full moon doesn’t fall in June. Solar Gemini begins Friday, May 20, and before it even reaches 3 degrees on Monday afternoon, the sun will oppose the moon. Cuspy Thanksgiving characters should feel the emotional repercussions of this very personal lunation more than Centaurs born in December. The Chrismakkah folks could be busy sorting out a problem at home as Mars challenges the peaceful vibe Venus purports to present. Some creatures relish these periods of heat and hostility; they wind up having makeup sex.

Capricorn: Dec. 22 – Jan. 20

Except for Christmas Capricorns, who might be dealing with a health, work or service issue, the full moon on Monday should bring a question of romance or another kind of risky venture to a head. Get all the information you can; the good-at-word-games Gemini-Sagittarius team is only too happy to oblige. But because Mercury is in stable, security-conscious Taurus, a compatible earth sign like your own, you won’t be bombarded with irrelevant facts and figures. Solar Gemini would be a good time to take flying lessons, maybe go up in a hot-air balloon.

Aquarius: Jan. 21 – Feb. 18

Affable Venus comes on to impressionable Neptune in your sign a few times a year; sometimes she presents a challenge, sometimes she offers pure pleasure. During their mutually supportive trine this week, anticipate receiving a pleasant reward for the test you aced at the end of April. And because Venus is currently in your Gemini house of romance and recreation, get ready for many-faceted fun and frolicking. The full moon might draw your attention to a career-vs.-family issue, but that’ll pass soon enough.

Pisces: Feb. 19 – Mar. 19

It’s the Fish born close to the Aquarius cusp who’ll feel the effects of Monday’s Gemini-Sagittarius full moon. To swim as fast as you can is a perfectly acceptable reaction to the art of adaptation the mutable signs are testing. Meanwhile, the March-born might be busy warding off an attack of bitchiness from a family member while Venus challenges Mars in your sign. Everybody is on edge until your Neptune ruler offers the goddess a shoulder to cry on and a mouth to kiss. Be thankful that these changes come down as fast as they do.
