The Memorial Day weekend comes packed with promise and disruptions. Most disturbing
would be whatever surfaces when the Gemini sun squares unpredictable Uranus
on Saturday. This is the first episode in what will become a seven-year saga
as Uranus makes its way through Pisces. Tell your version of the tale to an
appreciative audience Monday while chatty Mercury and affable Venus combine
good taste and talent. Everybody will be charming, well-spoken and amenable,
but don't press your luck. This weekend distressed Jupiter won't play
fair, and that could cost much more than you intend to spend. Tuesday may feel
particularly strange as a hyperbolic Neptune distorts perceptions and principles.
Beware the hype, the scam, the song and dance, as you head back to the daily
Your friends may think you're simply being sociable, showing up without
much arm-twisting and earning Brownie points along the way. Could it be that
accommodating others is part of your grand scheme? While your Mars ruler makes
its way through inventive Aquarius, you're bound to come up with something
uniquely your own. Since finances will play an integral part in whatever is
begun at the solar eclipse on the 30th, for the next three months acquiring
and distributing the money might be the best trip you can take.
Promote yourself. This is the best time in quite a while to get the word out,
display your talent and make sure other people know about it. While Mercury,
the press agent, merges with your tasteful Venus ruler in your own sign -
not that common an occurrence! - don't take any opportunity offered
for granted or assume there'll be another one around the corner. The air
of glamour surrounding you now helps attract someone of some importance next
week. Won't you be surprised!
Not only will you put some money where your mouth is, you might also make a
considerable donation to an organization you still have faith in. The ACLU?
Ozzfest? Idols, ideals, illusions and income are so intertwined right now, it'll
be difficult to separate the real deal from the wannabe. Since career concerns
are about to change radically, who knows what your next assignment will be or
what skill you'll be adding to your r??sum??? Just be glad
that Saturn leaving your sign takes that sense of impending doom with it.
Two new moons in one month can make May memorable in more ways than you realize.
Starting two separate agendas, one dealing with your standing at work, one about
friends or your affiliation with a group, could put more on your plate than
a picky Crab needs now that summer, your season in the sun, is almost here.
After stern Saturn moves into your sign on June 2, those born near the Gemini
cusp may be given additional responsibilities and, consequently, a lot more
respect. Now is the time to get down to serious business.
Are you eccentric, inventive or just way ahead of the curve? You'll find
out which it is the first time your sun ruler squares erratic Uranus in Pisces.
This new challenge can be quite different from the ones issued over the past
seven years, when Uranus was in your Aquarius complement. From now on, the test
results, while surprising, shouldn't be as disruptive. Some relationships
may still be hard to decipher, but lucky Jupiter in Leo will protect you from
whatever tricks nebulous Neptune in your partnership house has up its sleeve.
Like the Lion, the Virgin could also be waiting for test results from the sun's
first significant challenge to Uranus in your Pisces house of partners. Which
relationship will be shaken up? Who will introduce a new element to the current
setup, and how weird might that be? Since lovable Venus has joined up with your
Mercury ruler, the next six weeks should be very social and you, exceptionally
popular. You'll also be able to express yourself with grace, imagination
and wit instead of intimidating your audience with details and data.
Despite having high hopes for a happy and/or a judicious ending, this week
you may have to choose between the lesser of two "evil" alternatives.
Should you lend your good name to a domestic matter that reeks of duplicity
and doubt or should you support someone who is willing to buy your approval?
His or her generosity knows no bounds, but because your Venus ruler can put
you in a compromising position - greedy and gullible - you can't
count on the customary stroke of Libran luck to get you out of this dilemma.
To work or not to work, and what exactly for? The final opposition between
musical, mystical Neptune in your home base and enthusiastic, expansive Jupiter
in your career midheaven should end any further vacillating on your part. While
Jupiter promises prosperity and protection, Neptune presents a pretty picture
of domestic bliss. Reality comes into play when your mate adds his or her two
cents' worth, which, for another month, will be invaluable. If you can't
make a decision, let your partner do it.
