The Air Signs
Gemini, Liba, Aquarius

Enjoy yourself, Air Signs, you have been preoccupied with a lot of dull and dreary tasks and responsibilities lately, and most of your time and attention has gone to tending to relatives and friends who have problems and dilemmas. However, your scenario begins to brighten up considerably this week, starting on Wednesday, as the radiant Sun enters Gemini. You’re on a quest to reinvent yourself. However, the question you should be asking is why. Yes, you want to change your life, that’s true, but you don’t need to completely revamp your personality. Also on Wednesday, Venus is in impulsive Aries and quincunx stern Saturn, and your sense of personal dissatisfaction may accelerate. Remind yourself that you’re OK as you are, you just aren’t happy with some aspects of your life. Once you work out your circumstances, your perspective will change dramatically. You will start to have fun and seek out activities that you will enjoy. Remind yourself that it’s OK to let the good times roll! Your desire to throw a party leads you to organize a family reunion on Thursday as Mercury retrograde in Taurus sextiles Uranus. You are an independent soul, and you love to travel, so you don’t get to see your relatives as much as you would like. You may decide to jazz up your daily routine. you’ll search out new diversions. You may consider going back to a pursuit you enjoyed and that brought you a lot of enjoyment in the past. You Air Signs have a tremendous gift for art and music, and you might think about joining an art guild or choral group, or perhaps even starting your own rock band. This week, you’ll have the time to reconnect with the people who mean so much to you. A friend needs some advice over the weekend, and you’ll clear your schedule in order to spend time having an in-depth discussion with him or her. However, don’t be surprised if your associate disregards your guidance and counsel once your talk is over! Sunday’s New Moon in Gemini will finally bring you the opportunity to expand your horizons and plan to visit your dream destination.

Your Love Week – Air Signs:
Someone is cloaked in confusion about the state of your relationship as of late, Air Signs. Are they serious and true or just playing with your emotions? It’s time for the resolution of a seemingly paradoxical situation that’s hindering sexy time with your lover. You need to be conscious of the good and bad labels you put on things. Make a list of the good things about your relationship and another list about the bad ones. You’ll find after examining them that there is much good in the bad and bad in the good. Take a closer look. Attention to detail is important at this time. Look for the answers to larger problems in the little things. Life is speaking gently and trying to teach you something about love. Make sure you listen or life will speak more loudly. You really don’t want that. Your lover’s body language will give you useful information. Stay alert. If you work out what the question really is, you’ll more easily understand the answer when it comes to you. Like, yes, I want to take this relationship to a deeper level. Patience. You know that Mercury is still retrograde. Wait until early June to make your final decision.

The Fire Signs
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius

Fire Signs, you’re usually a fearless, flowing whichever way your heart and mind desire, but that’s not always the best or safest course of action for you! On Monday your viewpoint changes as the illuminating Sun conjuncts Mercury retrograde in conservative Taurus. You’ll become more cautious in the way you approach your routine. Now you’ll make sure you lock your car when you pop into a store, bring your cell phone with you when you go on a long walk down a nature trail, and get regular checkups from your doctor and dentist. You’re often a bit careless in your habits, but now you’ll let safety and security be your guide, at least in some areas of your life! This week, behavior modification is in order for a sibling or family member who persists in playing silly childhood games with you. On Wednesday the Sun enters Gemini and your sector of close relatives and you’ll actively strive to make your relative understand that you have your own life to live and no desire to tell him or her how to think, act, or behave. “You aren’t my boss” is one of your relative’s favorite phrases, and you’re the first one to agree! High spirits abound for you on Thursday, and you’ll put any and all issues aside as the Moon in optimistic and confident Aries sextiles lucky Jupiter in Aquarius. You and a close friend will make it your business to have fun. You may decide to join a new club or organization in an effort to kick-start your social life and bring more people into your daily orbit. On Saturday your fiery side kicks in as you go head to head with a competitor. The Sun in Gemini is quincunx powerful Pluto, and you’ll face off in a competition against someone you consider a friend. Of course, once you get a tennis racket or golf club in your hand, you want to win, no matter who you’re playing against. You may decide to join a book discussion group on Sunday, as the New Moon in Gemini ushers in a new chapter in your life via your renewed interest in reading and writing.

Your Love Week – Fire Signs:
Are you feeling limp and drained, Fire Signs, even a bit depressed? Do you feel as though your moods are swinging on a pendulum? Stand back and take a look at the situation that may be causing this feeling. Is it one-sided? Are you and your lover both at fault? Of course! It takes two to tango, right? You may be grieving or feeling sorrowful this week. Remember, those feelings are part of love, too. Don’t try to block or deny them. You need to feel them and process them naturally. If this love isn’t going as you wish, feel it, process it, then do what you need to do with it. You’ll be better in the end. Live this pain then let it pass so that tomorrow can bring you new love, life, and a richer experience. Otherwise, start dancing; in fact, a night out with her or him may just be what the doctor ordered. Don’t delay! It will end in a knowing embrace.

The Water Signs
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

Your timing is off this week, Water Signs, and you’ll find it hard to navigate with your customary insight and intuition. Normally, you can easily read between the lines in any situation, and you pick up on the subtleties involved in any interaction. However, currently mischievous Mercury is retrograde and you’ll begin to call your friends and associates at particularly inopportune moments. This week you have no desire whatsoever to live in the real world, not if you can help it. You’re a very imaginative and emotional, Water Signs, and you often rely on your intuition and hunches to make decisions. The cold, hard facts don’t always mean as much to you as your sixth sense, and many times you come to the right conclusion if you simply listen to your inner voice. On Wednesday, Mercury squares hazy Neptune, and you may discover it’s impossible for you to concentrate or engage in a conversation rooted in the here and now. Your head will certainly be up in the clouds and your topics of discussion will be very lofty ones, indeed! Your perception and insight will increase even more than usual as the Sun enters active Gemini. You may become very involved in metaphysical activities, and your nighttime dreams will be especially revealing. You may have a profound discussion with a former rival on Friday as the Moon in Taurus trines intense Pluto in Capricorn. You and your foe were at odds in the past, but now you’ll discover that your rival has grown up quite a bit since you last knew him or her. You’ll be able to have an enlightening conversation regarding the issues that took place between you long ago. Once that happens, you’ll experience a strong sense of closure. The real truth behind a family secret comes to light on Saturday, as the Sun in Gemini is quincunx underhanded Pluto in Capricorn. Remember, your family wasn’t involved in a conspiracy to keep important information from you; instead, they were waiting for you to mature before they shared their knowledge. Sunday’s New Moon in Gemini signals a turning point of reconciliation and love between you and your relatives.

Your Love Week – Water Signs:
It’s almost June, Water Signs. The situation will be viewed either as good or bad, depending on your perspective. There is one evident commonality: prospective love – perhaps not lasting relationships, but definitely passion! And sometimes that’s all that’s needed to get through the dark times. Stop and smell the roses – and the tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, and lilacs while you’re at it. The more comfortable you are in your own skin, the more you’ll attract the positive. Have you been setting artificial or inappropriate boundaries in your relationship? Your partner seems to think so and wonders when you’re going to relax. It seems that information you’re withholding from your lover is stressing you out when it may very well benefit her or him. Iit would be best if you spilled the beans to ease your conscience so you can get off this weird, dictatorial kick. It isn’t helping anything! Just be honest and trust the universe.

The Earth Signs
Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn

Earth Signs, you’re spending too much time in nostalgia now that Mercury, the planet of the mind, is retrograde in stubborn Taurus. You’re also playing the “I have regrets” game and you’ve forgotten to live in the moment. The news you’ve been waiting for finally arrives this week, and yes, you’re going to breathe a sigh of relief once that long anticipated occasion happens. On Monday the radiant Sun in Taurus conjuncts Mercury retrograde and you’ll see one of your cherished dreams come true. You’re very determined and you never give up, even if you do occasionally become discouraged when your circumstances don’t fit your life plan. This week you receive a wonderful reminder from the Universe that patience pays off and your hard work is always ultimately rewarded. Hurrah for you and fortitude! You need to scramble on Wednesday, as the Moon in impulsive Aries is quincunx your ruler, Saturn. You’ll run into hidden snags when you attempt to undertake a repair project in your house, which will end up taking longer than you thought. Whether you’re trying to fix a leaky faucet or patch crumbling molding on your kitchen window, once you take out your work tools, you’re going to be busy for quite some time. Consider asking a friend or relative for assistance. Also, on Wednesday, Mercury retrograde squares escapist Neptune and you’ll have a hard time concentrating on your daily activities, since you may be lost in feelings of disappointment. Do your best to forgive yourself of any misdeeds or errors you committed in the past and move on. Remember, even a perfectionist Earth Sign like you makes mistakes. You bump heads with someone you’re on a fundraising committee with on Saturday, as the Sun in Gemini is quincunx potent Pluto in Capricorn. The person is a no-nonsense stickler for rules and regulations and quite bossy. You’ll have to do your best not to vent your frustration at your colleague, since he or she is also highly connected in the community! On Sunday you’ll be able to kick back and enjoy yourself, and you may decide to enter a Scrabble or crossword puzzle tournament.

Your Love Week – Earth Signs:
Remember, we’re all one in this Universe, Earth Signs. Look at the goals you share with your lover this week. Things may have been a bit rocky. You need to seek cooperation rather than make things better on your own. He or she wants to heal wounds, too. You have an equal partnership, and this must be addressed. It feels like the end of the world when the balance is off in your relationship. Remember what’s best for both of you, not just what’s good for you. Selflessness is the key to making this a lasting, loving experience. Make a move and make it fast! She or he isn’t going to stand for your fickle behavior much longer, and you have to be clear with your intentions. Make a decision in honor of the lengthening days. This could very well be the true love that you’ve been waiting for. Your window of opportunity isn’t particularly big. Think of this opportunity as tulip blooms. How long do they usually last, two or three weeks? Do your best to make up for any differences with your lover and enjoy the sexy closeness the weekend brings.
