Your horoscopes for the week 16 May to 22 May, 2022
Aries – March 21 to April 20
The week starts with the Lunar Eclipse, which increases your magnetism and boosts your ability to inspire others and transform your own life. Find appropriate ways to let off steam and choose challenging projects to channel your fiery energy into. Then Mars (your power planet) hooks up with Neptune on Wednesday. Which increases creativity and intuition … but also decreases energy and motivation. So pace yourself, as you keep following your dreams.
Taurus – April 21 to May 21
The Lunar Eclipse lights up your partnership zone, so it will be impossible to escape relationship issues this week. Intense concentration, careful listening and calm compromise are the keys to drama-free relations. But – with Mercury reversing through your money zone – it’s not a good time to buy big ticket items (like a house or a car), sign business contracts, apply for a bank loan or lend money to others. Instead, be a patient Bull and wait.
Gemini – May 22 to June 21
Dynamic Mars pairs up with Neptune on Wednesday, which is fabulous for taking bold new ideas and incorporating them into your professional plans for the future. Destiny is around and you’ll find the more you combine the creative with the practical, the better the long-term outcome will be. But with Mercury still in retrograde mode (in your sign) there’ll be some stumbling blocks along the way. So do your best to be a patient and adaptable Twin.
Cancer – June 22 to July 23
This week will be confusing so slow down and get your bearings before you proceed. Convivial Crabs – aim to get the balance right between socialising with others and spending quality time on your own. Shine a spotlight on your aspirations for the future. Are they an honest reflection of who you are right here and right now? If you have an ongoing problem that’s bothering you, look to a wise mentor or a mature friend for some well-chosen words of advice.
Leo – July 24 to August 23
Watch out for domestic dramas, as the Lunar Eclipse shines an intense spotlight on a brewing and stewing family situation. And with Mercury still retrograde, it’s not a good week to make big decisions (especially involving goals and friendships). Be patient and listen to tried-and-true friends who have proved their loyalty. Be inspired by this week’s birthday great Cher, “I can trust my friends. These people force me to examine myself, encourage me to grow.”
Virgo – August 24 to September 23
You’re keen to help. But do other people require your well-meaning assistance? Remember Mercury (your patron planet) is in retrograde mode until June 3. So be careful you’re not just being a fussy and finicky meddler. And if you are too quick to critique others, then you could find yourself with a fractious friend or a cranky colleague on your hands. Praise and encouragement will get you a lot further than criticism, no matter how ‘constructive’ it is.
Libra – September 24 to October 23
Mercury is retrograde until June 3. So things won’t run smoothly, especially involving relationships, finances, education or travel. If you adapt to changing circumstances and accept mistakes and misunderstandings with good grace, then you’ll manage fine. Heed the wise words of entertainer Beyonce (who has Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto and her Ascendant in Libra). “If everything was perfect, you would never learn and you would never grow.”
Scorpio – October 24 to November 22
Metamorphosis is the name of the game, as the Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio pushes you to rise Phoenix-like from the ashes of a difficult situation. A challenging relationship (with a partner, relative or neighbour) has the potential to be reborn into a much more positive partnership. Thursday’s Sun/Pluto trine will help you release old grudges, let go of the past, forgive and forget, and move on. But a situation with a child, teenager or friend remains confusing and complicated.
Sagittarius – November 23 to December 21
The Lunar Eclipse highlights intuitive insights, but don’t get so carried away that you head into the realm of pure fantasy. Retrograde Mercury confuses communication, so be careful you’re not viewing people through ridiculously rose-coloured glasses. If you’re attached, are you and your partner on the same page? If you’re single and looking for love, be cautious. Make sure you can you differentiate between a dream date and a disappointing dud.
Capricorn – December 22 to January 20
Monday’s Lunar Eclipse activates your hopes and wishes zone, so start dreaming some big dreams now! Then Thursday’s powerful Sun/Pluto trine boosts your magnetism and determination. But avoid being a gullible Goat. Someone could try to pull the wool over your eyes, so stay alert. Aim to channel your creative Capricorn energy into friendships, neighbourhood connections and local community projects. It’s a good week to think global; act local.
Aquarius – January 21 to February 19
This week’s Lunar Eclipse lights up your career/reputation zone. Plus taskmaster Saturn is still transiting through your sign, and Mercury is reversing through your creativity zone. So confidence about your talents and your future direction is rather wobbly. Don’t listen to your inner critic! Be inspired by singer-actress Cher, who turns 76 on Friday. “If you’re waiting for someone to believe in you, you’ll be waiting forever. You must believe in yourself.”
Pisces – February 20 to March 20
Neptune links up with Mars, so creativity and empathy will soar. But be clear in the way you communicate, otherwise your true meaning will be scrambled. And are you being the real you? Or are you living your life according to other people’s agendas and expectations? The more you express the artistic, humanitarian and spiritual sides of your Piscean personality, the less confused you’ll feel. So it’s a great week to create, contemplate, and help someone in need.
