The AIR Signs
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
It’s time to sell yourself, Air Signs. The big news for you this week is that Saturn turns direct, which will ease your financial situation, especially if you have had a lot of debt or bills to pay off. Over the coming weeks, you will see progress. Meanwhile, you are determined to have your say. A major focus on your communication zone is perfect for sharing ideas, telling others how you feel, and advertising your goods or services. If you are a writer, teacher, or salesperson, you will get a lot done. Selling in particular should go down well, but as Mercury is retrograde, some of your customers may want to renegotiate the deals you sold them. Mercury retrograde moves back into Taurus on Wednesday. This may coincide with a lack of clarity on certain issues. You may not be able to see the forest for the trees, but don’t let it worry you, as this phase will pass. Allow the answers to flow to you rather than try to work them out. It will be less of a strain. You may also want to update your office system and make sure that everything is streamlined. You seem to be in a much more ethereal mood than on previous occasions. Your head may be in the clouds, which is why it helps to be grounded.

Your social life is pleasantly busy with a lot to look forward to over this coming week. You want to initiate meetings with all kinds of people, and this is a very positive move for you. If you’re looking for a new lover, then reaching out will help you in your search. If you’re looking for new business associates, regular networking is just the thing to bring people your way. Whatever you’re up to, it’s going to be fun. On Saturday, Saturn will turn direct in Virgo, which is going to bring you a lot more confidence in your ability to handle family issues. If you’ve felt the strain recently, things are going to get a lot easier in this regard. If you look back, you’ll be able to see how much progress you’ve made. Things should run a lot smoother for you as June opens.

heart-loveYour Love Week – Fire Signs:
Tired of the guessing games, Fire Signs? Is he or she giving you mixed signals again? This relationship can’t progress until you’ve faced the block within you. It’s imperative that you stop laying the blame on others. You must heal yourself before your relationship spirals out of control. He or she is willing to work through it with you. Communicate! Honesty is key. No need to follow the advice of your elders this week, Fire Signs. They may have experience with these love issues, and most likely have your best interests in mind, but your sparkly intuition knows best. If you think that you’d like to spend a bit more time with her or him, by all means, do it! Your loved ones don’t need to be informed of every detail of your life. Lovers secrets are sacred (wink).
The WATER Signs
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
You may be experiencing conscious dreaming, as you feel that you are dreaming while wide awake. You have always been a dreamer, Water Signs, so having both Neptune and Jupiter conjunct is encouraging this side of your nature even more. It is not only your night dreams that will be much more plentiful but your daydreams, too. It may be all too tempting to get caught up in fantasies that are leading you nowhere, which is why it helps to make your daydreams more conscious. When you are consciously aware of what you want, you can then literally dream/visualize it into existence. This is the best time to come up with plans for creating extra streams of income.

e competitive frame of mind than usual. It’s time to push past those obstacles to reach your goals. In terms of your health, you’re equally keen and very determined to get into shape and prepare for the summer months. Try not to overdo it if you’re beginning an exercise routine after a period of abstinence. You don’t want to pull a muscle just as you’re getting started. Remember, as Mercury continues to be retrograde, this isn’t the best time to go hunting for a business partner. You’ll do best to research your options before you decide on the right person. In your love life, this is the best time to talk over anything that needs discussing. You can also use the coming weeks to plan ahead so you can get started when Mercury turns direct at the end of May. Your home life takes on a more mystical perspective. If you’re thinking of moving, this is the time to visualize your new home in order to encourage it to manifest more quickly.
