May 29 – June 4, 2013
For All Signs: I’ve been describing the structure of revolutions. Step 1: The ruling class takes all the resources and then distances itself from the people. Step 2: The intellectuals develop a philosophy of freedom and rally the people. Step 3: The Powers fall and a group of moderate leaders take control. Step 4: The old infrastructure still remains in place. It requires too long to dismantle and make the big changes wanted by the people. Step 5: Fringe radicals are regrouping and becoming organized. Step 6: A reign of terror ensues while the radicals overwhelm the newly formed moderate government. Step 7: Eventually someone emerges as the new dictator. Step 8: Many of the pre-revolutionary patterns are restored and the people are left generally exhausted with the struggle. Ultimately little is changed.
This is a revolutionary time for us all, personally and politically. Let us make it a time for the Good, rather than yielding to general destruction for its own sake.
Aries: Mars, your ruling planet, shifts your attention on the 31st to fresh territory. During the next six weeks, your activities will be emphasized in the life sectors related to vehicles, short distance travels, politics, communications, education, your neighborhood, and siblings. Go easy on the itchy accelerator foot.
Taurus: Your ruling planet is Venus, goddess of love and the arts. "She" moves into a new sector between June 2 and June 26. Your attention will be drawn to parties in neighboring areas and with those of your usual environment. Those with siblings may enjoy improved relationship through this period. You’ll be inclined to add luxury items to your vehicle, or maybe even purchase a new one.
Gemini: Mars, the warrior, enters your sign this week and will be traveling with you for six weeks. This energy is especially helpful in defining our boundaries. Periodically we need to examine who we are and also who we are not. Often something is eliminated. Courage and physical strength is increased. So is the tendency to control others.
Cancer: Venus and Mercury enter your sign this week, bringing with them general busy-ness and sociability. You are likely to be traveling or at least making plans for your next big trip. This is an excellent time to pursue any activity that requires your mental concentration. Contracts and written communications, along with short distance travel, have go signals.
Leo: You may feel the need to help someone nearby who has deeply hurt feelings. The problem is similar to one of your own in the past, so you feel a special kinship. Tending to the Other’s pain will be helping your own buried pain as well. There might also be a pull in the direction of ordering your financial affairs and planning your estate.
Virgo: You are finishing a work project and shifting gears into new territory this week. You will be focusing on communications with friends, acquaintances, and building your network. Aspects favor relationships of all types, including your partner and family. Travel or making plans for future travel may be part of the scenery.
Libra: Both Venus and Mercury enter your house of career and life direction. This influence will favor your occupation and probably improve your income. Your work is on display and positive feedback comes your way. Your leadership gifts come to the foreground at this time. Don’t shrink away. Take the added responsibility offered and run with it.
Scorpio: Positive news comes your way related to children, the arts, legal, educational, or publishing interests. You may have an opportunity to travel or expand your territory. Internet activity is favored. Your attention will begin to shift toward issues of intimacy and partnership, joint and corporate financial matters, taxes, and/or estate and business planning.
Sagittarius: Your partner may take on an uncharacteristic manner of self-assertion and you are prone to allow this. He or she is not so likely to back down from a fight. Life will be generally more harmonious if you stay off the hot topics. If it is important to tackle them now, seek a counselor, a trusted friend, or a negotiator to keep things fair.
Capricorn: Now is a perfect time to allow your partner or significant Other to say what is on his/her mind. Open your heart to really “hear” the content of what is shared with you. A really fine conversation and meeting of the minds will follow if you will be generous enough to share as well. Your work life is temporarily on hold.
Aquarius: If you are looking for a tenant or a new employee, someone will turn up now that fills your requirements and satisfies your needs. Working conditions are generally favorable. Your ability to concentrate upon projects that require management of details is strong. Your health improves at this time.
Pisces: Good news concerning your children may come at this time. The muse is with you in relationship with any of the fine arts. This is a fine time to enjoy books and/or TV, meditate and journal. Give yourself time for self-exploration and even just "diddling around" and relaxing. Your dreams are meaningful and your intuition strong.
