Astrology forecast for May 19-June 1



By Cortney Litwin/Staff Writer

A sexy full moon in Scorpio on the 24th intensifies intimate interactions and, on a psychological level, encourages eliminating emotional baggage.

Mercury’s opposition to Jupiter on the 27th-28th increases brainpower and mental creativity but can be problematic for signing contracts and other legal issues.

As for romance, the collision between amorous Venus and illusive Neptune can make for a heavenly tryst, if you can keep your wits about you and at least one foot planted firmly on the ground.

Another idealistic influence is Mars’ transit into Pisces April 30-June 11, an excellent time for putting energy into your spiritual life as well as creative endeavors that require a burst of imagination.

If you know your rising sign from your time of birth, read that also.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Your ruler moving into Pisces on the 30th for six weeks will color your actions with more sensitivity than you may be used to, and is an excellent time to fire up your imagination for profit. The full moon boosts your financial resources.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

The full moon causes some divine madness in your primary relationship, so go with the flow and enjoy the intoxication. Just keep grounded to avoid disillusionment during Neptune’s romantic influence around the 29th.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

“Joie de vivre” is the upbeat take on your ruler Mercury’s dance with expansive Jupiter around the 27th, if you don’t overindulge. The full moon emphasizes healthy activities and reevaluating the past.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Romance skyrockets during the full moon, with a bit of looniness mixed in. A misunderstanding with a friend, or a call for help, may take place around the 29th. And Mars energizes your travel sector April 30-June 11.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Family relationships are the focus during the full moon, with an emphasis on healing the past. A flirtation at work or a misunderstanding with a coworker may catch you off guard around the 29th; strive for clarity.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Seize the day with abandon when your Mercury ruler teams up with joyful Jupiter around the 27th. The full moon highlights opportunities through communications and networking and may present you with a short trip for fun.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Divine creative inspiration is yours for the taking around the 29th, as long as you reality-check your romantic aspirations. Look for financial opportunities during the full moon.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your powers of attraction are amplified during the full moon in your sign, if you can stay focused and not scatter your energy. Be especially clear with your sweetie during the Neptunian muddle around the 29th.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You may need to unravel a personal puzzle when your intellect goes to war with your desires around the 27th; avoid making major decisions then. The full moon activates your intuition and spiritual life.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Activities with friends and community events are highlighted during the full moon. Remove the rose-colored glasses when interacting with your sweetie around the 29th. And look for opportunities through networking April 30-June 11.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The full moon energizes the career moves you’ve been planning for the last two weeks. Home activities are inspired (if perhaps impractical) around the 29th; best to put off any major personal decisions until after May 2.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

The full moon illuminates your future path, if you can take the time to access your intuition. Love is dreamy around the 29th, but it’s best to check the facts before jumping to romantic conclusions.
