General for Week Commencing: Monday 21 May 2018

   Aries Monday 21 May 2018  Mar 21 - Apr 19
There really is a chance to catch your breath this week, with Uranus’ departure from Aries last week a major shakeup. Since 2010 Uranus has been pushing, pulling, cajoling and contriving to put you on your most authentic path possible and at times in a way where it felt like you had no control. As the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected, life was constantly surprising you and shifting the goalposts. While Uranus is now doing this on the income front, as he spends his first full week in your income sector in eight decades, anything new is going to be unpredictable and that’s what you want. As both planets on the career front regroup, Uranus’ return to your income sector has changed the whole dynamics. On no front is there any urgency, which is why this week will come as a welcome reprieve.
   Taurus Monday 21 May 2018  Apr 20 - May 20
The Sun’s departure from Taurus on Monday will bring your birthday month to a close, but behind this a bigger and more game changing journey has just begun. It was Uranus’ return to Taurus last week, for the first time since 1942, that has begun a year journey towards not just finding your personal truth, but living it. It is a good omen then, that the support from the get go is from Saturn and Pluto, in an adventurous part of your chart. As your birthday month ends and you move into your new solar year proper, there is every reason to be excited about the journey ahead. In the meantime, the Sun turns the solar spotlight onto your income situation, matters and options, just as Mars is spending his first full week in your career sector. This is also a week when Venus, Jupiter and Neptune come together to create some auspicious conditions for communication, friendship and relationship building.
   Gemini Monday 21 May 2018  May 21 - Jun 21
When the planets find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time this can create some real challenges, yet when they find themselves in the right place at the right time the stars literally align in our favour. That is the case this week and it is happening on more than one front. The Sun’s return to Gemini on Monday is one example, with your birthday month and new solar year kicking off just as Mars is fuelling a passion for adventure and a hunger for life’s richer experiences. Another example is on the income, work and career fronts where Venus most definitely finds herself in the right place at the right time. Venus’ return to your income sector over the weekend has kicked off the most lucrative months of 2018, by coincidence just as Neptune and Jupiter are spending the week aligned. By accident or designed, Venus has returned just as the stars align across the job and career fronts.
   Cancer Monday 21 May 2018  Jun 22 - Jul 22
The Sun’s return to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart on Monday begins the month long wind down of your old solar year, something that happens at this time every year. Yet having returned to Cancer over the weekend, Venus is giving your heart a jump start and a chance to determine what you want from a solar year still a month away. It is here that Venus finds some exciting dynamics to work with, especially on the romantic and relationship fronts. As the planet of love and guardian of your relationships, Venus has returned to Cancer to update your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year. Yet for the first time in three decades, Venus has returned to find Saturn in your relationship sector and for the first time in over a decade, lucky Jupiter in your romantic sector. Where you’re going life can no longer be all work and no play.
   Leo Monday 21 May 2018  Jul 23 - Aug 22
Starting the week with the Moon in Leo is giving you an intuitive edge from the get go and that will prove to be a real advantage. For it is on Monday that the Sun’s departure from your career sector and return to your friendship sector brings the most active week of the year for planetary shifts to a close. With the Moon here until Tuesday, this will not only give you an intuitive read on the shifts that have taken place on both the job and career fronts over the previous seven days, but across almost every aspect of your life. It’s as though the stars have thrown all their cards up in the air and they have now landed to reveal a new pattern. From this has emerged a strengthened position on the relationship, job and career fronts, but there is also a new sense of nostalgia in the air. Give yourself permission to get a feel for the new layout before rushing into anything.
   Virgo Monday 21 May 2018  Aug 23 - Sep 22
Life has become a lot more complex since a series of planetary shifts began last month. Yet as the final shift takes place this Monday, you now have the configuration that will take things forward. What has emerged from this is three strong areas of your chart, each made up of inter related parts and all having to somehow work together. In one area you have the powerful forces taking hold on the play and adventurous fronts. This is the most powerful area and will be now for not just months to come, but years to come. Another area is on the communication, friendship and relationship building fronts, where the planets of love, luck and dreams are now working together as a team. The other main front is a team made up of the Sun and Mars, who are creating a whole new exciting set of dynamics on the job and career fronts. Having the right work/life balance is now essential.
   Libra Monday 21 May 2018  Sep 23 - Oct 23
There has been so many planetary shifts in the seven days leading up to this Monday, that compared to where things were at the same time last week, everything has shifted. This has changed the whole dynamics of the year, but in the process three distinct areas or groups of planetary alignments are taking shape. In one group, you have the Sun and Mars, who are working together from Monday to bring romance, passion and adventure together. Simply going through the motions is no longer enough. At the same time Venus, Jupiter and Neptune, the planets of money, luck and dreams have come together to create some stunning dynamics across the income, work and career fronts. On the third front is emerging a whole new way of not only looking at money matters, but your whole way of looking at what you invest into life versus what you receive in return.
   Scorpio Monday 21 May 2018  Oct 24 - Nov 21
While you start the week with the Moon in your career sector and therefore your professional instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go, you will soon find that the monkey that has been on your back is gone. Nothing is going to drop back on the job front, opportunities aren’t going to dry up and you’re not going to find yourself with nothing to do, but gone is the pressure to work around the clock. In its place is a lot more stability and also a better chance to find a balance between work and play. And just as well, for this is the week that Venus, Jupiter and Neptune have come together to create a powerful mix of romance, adventure and nostalgia. This comes just as there is something special developing on the relationship front, but also on the home and family fronts. Where work came before having a life, life is now coming first.
   Sagittarius Monday 21 May 2018  Nov 22 - Dec 21
The Moon is an important player this week, moving through areas of your chart that are supporting some major shifts. What this Moon is doing is providing support, but without drawing all the attention. For example, the week begins with adventurous lunar vibes in play. From this position the Moon is supporting playful forces that are adjusting after Uranus left a playful part of your chart last week. On Tuesday the Moon will return to your career sector, where it is able to support Uranus in his first full week in your work sector and Saturn and Pluto, as they regroup on the income front. This creates some auspicious conditions across the income, work and career fronts midweek. Yet on Thursday, the Moon will shift the focus onto the Sun and Mars, contributing to creating an auspicious few days across the communication, friendship and relationship building fronts.
   Capricorn Monday 21 May 2018  Dec 22 - Jan 19
This week is a paradox when it comes to the very different dynamics in play, something that is just falling into place on Monday. This wraps up a seven day period that has seen more planetary shifts than at any other time this year, which as a result the whole dynamics of the year have changed. It is when we look at the new pattern that has been created, that the diversity becomes apparent. For you have moved into a stunning week across the income, work and career fronts, but also when it comes to all things playful and adventurous. This is also a stunning week for communication, friendship and relationship building. Yet this isn’t a case of either/or, for all of these dynamics are strong and vibrant in their own right. With so many areas of your life opening up at the same time, work/life balance is everything.
   Aquarius Monday 21 May 2018  Jan 20 - Feb 18
Don’t be surprised if you have some buttons pushed at the start of the week, with the biggest surprise likely to be your reaction. What you’re experiencing is the effect of Mars’ return to Aquarius last week and the interaction with first the Moon, then the Sun and then the Moon again. The week begins with the Moon in opposition with Mars, which is why this might push some buttons. Yet this is simply the Moon putting your personal and relationship needs to the test. Yet the Moon will move on and the Sun’s return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on Monday will have a big impact. They come together midweek, just as the Moon returns to an adventurous part of your chart. This time this will fuel a mix of romance, passion and adventure. Yet this falls right in the heart of a stunning week across the income, work and career fronts.
   Pisces Monday 21 May 2018  Feb 19 - Mar 20
There is not only a need to take things easy this week, but you’ll find that doing anything else is unsupported. While you start the week with the Moon in your work sector, this is more a chance to pick up on some valuable clues, hunches and insights ahead of the new doors opening on the job front next week. Venus’ return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart over the weekend has begun a quest to find a better balance between work and play. This comes just as Mars spends his first full week in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart. This has begun the wind down of a Mars cycle that began in 2016, something that may have taken the wind out of your sails. You won’t always feel like spending time navel gazing, but the more you can stay in life’s slow lane this week the better. Even if it’s just long enough to get your bearings, after a massive amount of planetary shifts last week.
