Astrology forecast for May 23-June 5



    By Cortney Litwin/Staff Writer

    The Full Moon on Sunday zings emotional energy into the stratosphere, heightening emotional breakthroughs and brilliant ideas, as well as mishaps in communications and travel-seldom a smooth ride anyway during unpredictable Mercury retrograde.

    Venus transiting into Cancer inspires joyful family gatherings, especially when benevolent Jupiter enters the picture on June 3. However, Mars also enters Cancer next week-can we say, “Domestic disturbance?” Stay clear of difficult family members.

    Uranus turns retrograde on June 3, signifying reversals in innovations, but may bring new life to an ingenious project you thought was long dead and buried.

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

    Aries (March 21-April 19)

    A spontaneous trip may take you by surprise, with delightful (for the most part) results. However, if you try to plan a get-away, expect the unexpected. Mentally, you’re in overdrive. Brainstorm with a family member.

    Taurus (April 20-May 20)

    A financial windfall may come about in the near future from a moneymaking idea you have now. Your love life flourishes next week when Jupiter aligns with your Venus ruler, but Pluto says to expect personal changes.

    Gemini (May 21-June 21)

    Your emotional barometer is on overload. A romantic partner or secret admirer may finally express what he/she feels. Your Mercury ruler connecting with Neptune next week will inspire poetry (or confuse communications).

    Cancer (June 22-July 22)

    With gracious Venus and go-getter Mars in Cancer, design the home of your dreams and take action in initiating plans. Your love life blossoms from Jupiter, but Pluto says let go of what’s (or who’s) not right for you.

    Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

    An old flame may re-enter your life (or at least your thoughts). Is something left unsaid? New friendships are favored, but new work projects may have to be put on hold for now.

    Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept.. 22)

    A long-awaited work advancement may finally manifest itself through a friend or a social event. Group activities are favored. A family member seeks your advice.

    Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

    Assistance with your career may come from an unexpected source as expansive Jupiter partners with your Venus ruler. Advertising is favored, but pay close attention to the details of any transaction.

    Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

    Envision your dreams for your future-it’s time to look at the big picture. Financial dealings can be unpredictable, so pay close attention to the fine print and seek legal advice if necessary.

    Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

    Venus connecting with your Jupiter ruler next week says it’s time for greater vision in your love life. Pluto, also in the picture, makes personal re-evaluation a necessity.

    Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

    It’s time to express your dreams and goals for your relationship. What do you want to create together? If you’re single, what kind of person do you want to share your life with? Meditate for clarity.

    Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

    An unexpected work opportunity may present itself when your Uranus ruler aligns with Mars next week. However, with Uranus retrograde, it may be delayed. Look to friends and groups for assistance.

    Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

    Romance and creativity take precedence this week. Your intuition guides you when your Neptune ruler aligns with the Sun next week. Strive for balance when family and career pull you in opposite directions.
