Rockie Weekly Horoscope May 19-25


General Forecast

Perk up your ears, look for a sign. The sun and Mercury are still close enough (their conjunction was Thursday) to send out messages to anyone willing to receive them. But as they cross from pragmatic Taurus to literate Gemini this weekend, the tone may change. The billing and cooing you hear on Saturday is a result of romantic Venus’ opportunistic sextile to idealistic Neptune, a daydream come true, but not for long. On Tuesday during a challenging square to Mars in Cancer, Venus gets embroiled in one of those “she said, he said” conflicts. Sexy perhaps, but no longer sweet and gentle.

Aries: Mar. 20 – Apr. 19

The odds of beginning a new romance or simply attracting more action get better as desirable Venus in your sign approaches a provocative square to your Mars ruler. The point of impact is scheduled for Tuesday, but because Mars is impatient, and makes you feel the same way, there’s a good chance that you’ll be all hot and bothered as early as this weekend. More good news; the aftermath of their initial encounter is buffeted by a supportive trine between Venus and passionate Pluto in Sag, an eminently compatible fire sign.

Taurus: Apr. 20 – May 20

Read for Aries. Once again your Venus ruler and Mars, their ruling planet are headed for another romantic encounter, but not necessarily with each other. Venus in fiery Aries could just as easily attract a poetic Pisces, an altruistic Aquarius, a brooding Scorpio or a Sagittarius on the run. Under normal circumstances, I would advise caution, but while Venus is in high-spirited Aries, you’re more inclined to take a risk, act on impulse and make the first move. Next week, after Venus enters Taurus, you can sit back and wait to be courted.

Gemini: May 21 – Jun. 20

Since this year your rational Mercury ruler is in your sign for only two weeks, try to focus on the most important items on your agenda instead of the full range of your current interests. Also try not to get overwhelmed by the amount and variety of information you receive or by those sudden flashes of brilliance that seem to occur with regularity whenever Mercury comes back to Gemini. Yes, use them, but understand that when your brain is operating at mach speed, and overtime to boot, you could easily burn out. An infusion of new moon energy on the 26th.

Cancer: Jun. 21 – Jul. 22

It’s a once every two-year transit, however while aggressive Mars is in your sign, you can’t ignore his forthright objectives. Nothing subtle about those intentions, but you might try pulling punches when Venus is the target. Such is the case this week. Unfortunately for working stiffs, Venus is presently holding court in your Aries career house, so while you want to call the shots, the friction generated by the square aspect between the planet ruling women and the one ruling men won’t allow it. Give up or give in.

Leo: Jul. 23 – Aug. 22

A close relationship could take a downturn when impressionable Neptune in your house of partners turns retrograde on the 22nd for the next five months. Over the last few years, this pattern may have taken some getting used to, but by now you should have found a way to deal with the lack of attention and action. For some Lions, a welcome relief; for others, a colossal drag. However, at the end of August, when rigorous Saturn in your sign opposes nebulous Neptune in Aquarius, this relationship could change for good. Solidify or disintegrate?

Virgo: Aug. 23 – Sep. 22

Is it time to make travel arrangements for the summer? The planetary activity in gad-about Gemini, especially around the new moon on the 26th, could inspire a desire to go somewhere you haven’t been before with people with whom you have great rapport. Why the heads-up now? Because your Mercury ruler will be retrograde from July 4 until July 28, it’s doubtful that any new business will be introduced during that period. And since Mercury will be criss-crossing the border between Cancer and Leo then, foreign cuisine and exotic entertainments should keep your interest from wandering.

Libra: Sep. 23 – Oct. 22

Solar Gemini is traditionally a good time of year for fellow air sign Librans. All those animated conversations, plus places to go and people to see, and, if there’s a chance of making money from a joint project, so much the better. But the action that’ll keep you busy is less mental, more physical, and quite emotional. That’s because your affectionate Venus ruler and abrasive Mars are about to rub each other the wrong or, for the truly horny, the right way. Certainly sparks will fly from the contact, but it can also result in a push-comes-to-shove situation.

Scorpio: Oct. 23 – Nov. 21

Wide parameters and vague forecasts won’t help pinpoint what will happen when amenable Venus reaches out to both Mars and Pluto, your co-ruling planets. But since you are familiar with the details of your romantic life as well as your artistic efforts, you can fill in the blank spots yourself. A challenging square between Venus and Mars may provoke further interest in a co-worker and provide an issue to work out between you. Meanwhile a rewarding trine from the goddess to Pluto in your money house could bring in something of value, something you’ve been waiting for.

Sagittarius: Nov. 22 – Dec. 21

The combination of Mercury, the sun and next weekend the new moon in Gemini could provide additional information that’ll force you to look at a partnership matter in a new light. But until that time comes, you may become obsessed (not an easy thing for a philosophical Sag) with the good times and good feelings you’re having while flirtatious Venus in your Aries house of fun and games favors Pluto in your sign. Blame that pervasive Plutonic intensity for turning an easy-come, easy-go attraction into a matter of life-or-death.

Capricorn: Dec. 22 – Jan. 20

For the next few days the Gemini sun and Mercury should keep you amused playing word games or preparing to run a 5K, but before too much longer, that Gemini intelligence will have you concentrating on the work you do so well and the impact you can have if you decide to volunteer your services. Try to keep your emotional distance this weekend if Venus in your home base and Mars in your marriage zone attack each other. Let family members resolve their problem with your partner without any interference or input on your part.

Aquarius: Jan. 21 – Feb. 18

Now would be a good time to get into a home improvement project, preferably something related to communication, lighting or organizing the garage. The beneficial air sign energy that Gemini is emitting should not be allowed to go to waste, especially since inspirational Neptune in your sign could veer off in another direction when it turns retrograde on Monday. Neptune’s reversal might leave you groggy and unfocused, which is another reason why perceptive Mercury and the creative vibes of the sun can be such a positive force.

Every now and then Fish reach out to the amphibians, insects and plants that make neighborhood life so congenial. Well, it’s that time of year, it’s also the time to update electrical equipment, bikes and other means of transportation. Airy Gemini can sometimes seem too speedy or irritating for a Pisces who is looking for peace of mind, but the Twins compensate by offering the latest information and workable alternatives. Regarding romance: assertive Mars could be angling for a valuable token of your affection; the more beautiful, the better.
