21-27 April Weekly Horoscope 2014

Don’t give up! The goal you’ve been working toward for ages is finally close at hand. Just a little more effort, a little more sacrifice of time, and you will finally get what you want. Do not be surprised if an acquaintance approaches you for a loan. Only give up the cash if you’re sure you won’t need it in the future – because you will NEVER see a dime of this money again!

This would be a good week to purchase a crucifix for yourself, and to war the sacred symbol from dusk to dawn. You might also wish to pick up some garlic cloves from the grocery store and place them on each of your windowsills and across the threshold of your front door. There is a very practical reason for these suggestions, but to avoid causing you undue alarm, it cannot be revealed at this time.

Seeing double? Don’t be surprised! Your Gemini “twin” sign is in full force, meaning everything will occur in tows. When something bad happens, wait for the other shoe to drop – because you’re in line for a double whammy. And when good things happen, expect to be doubly blessed. Bachelors, this is the best week of the year to try to fulfill that fantasy of “two at once.”

Sagittarius May 2014

Spiritual influences weave through the down-to-earth realities of daily life—including your personal relationships—to give greater meaning to this month. The superconjunction of confident Jupiter, inspirational Neptune, and healing Chiron begins on May 23–27 to return in July and December of this year.

The union of these planets of higher wisdom in your 3rd House of Informationof the connection makes you aware of all living things, stirring desires to learn about new and different subjects and heightening your ability to share your ideas with clarity and conviction. However, an intellectual contrast starts on May 7 when Mercury, the messenger planet, goes retrograde in your 7th House of Relationships. This backward turn may require you to review plans with partners, colleagues, and friends to make sure that you’re still on the same page until Mercury starts moving forward again on May 30.

Scorpio May 2014

Relationships demand reevaluation this month, for Mercury, the planet of communication, turns retrograde in your 8th House of Intimacy on May 7. Issues that you thought were already settled may need another round of negotiations during the Trickster’s backward cycle, which doesn’t end until May 30.

The focus on partnership matters is underscored by the Sun’s opposition in your 7th House of Others to the Full Moon in emotional Scorpio on May 9. You may need to readjust your expectations, because excessive Jupiter’s stressful square to the Sun and Moon forces strong feelings out into the open. But don’t be in a hurry to settle matters: Retrograde Mercury suggests that you need more time to untie knots of miscommunication before you can move forward again with confidence.

Libra May 2014

Just as you begin to make progress in the relationship arena, you must face yet another round of complications demanding attention. Venus’s extended visit to your 7th House of Partnerships continues to sweeten your interactions with others throughout the month. You’re motivated to go after what you want, because resourceful Venus now has assertive Mars for a traveling companion.

This confident Venus-Mars combo occurs in brash Aries, allowing you to be uncharacteristically direct when you’re creatively pushing into new territory—romantically or professionally. But your thoughts can bottleneck as Mercury grinds to a halt in your 9th House of Big Ideas on May 7, possibly unraveling your plans to take a trip or enroll in a course of study. The messenger planet’s retrograde phase lasts until May 30, suggesting that you’ll be untangling miscommunications and tying up loose ends. It slips back into your 8th House of Shared Resources on May 13, raising old issues about jointly held property or what someone else brings to your relationship.

Virgo May 2014

Communication issues, especially in business matters, are key concerns this month with Mercury turning retrograde in your 10th House of Status on May 7. The speedy Messenger slipped into chatty Gemini on the last day of April, but its usual fast thinking and talking in the sign of the Twins are slowed by this backward turn. It’s essential to avoid spreading yourself so thin with projects that you leave loose ends. Even your notorious attention to detail can waiver until Mercury rights its course and turns direct on May 30.

The activities of outer planets are also critical this month as optimistic Jupiter joins compassionate Chiron on May 23 and idealistic Neptune on May 27 in your 6th House—the first in a series of superconjunctions of this spiritually oriented trinity that recurs in Julyand December. This represents a wave of rising awareness of how you apply your energies in your daily life, opening the door to better health, opportunities to advance your skills, and more happiness on the job.

Leo May 2014

Enthusiastic as you may be about what’s ahead, you’re probably still doing a bit of emotional cleanup this month. Sensual Venus is now moving direct again in excitable Aries, revisiting territory she traced during her retrograde last month. The retrograde torch is passed from Venus to mental Mercury as the messenger planet backtracks on May 7–30, intensifying communication at work, especially when entering your 10th House of Public Responsibility on May 13. Your physical energy remains high this month while Mars blasts through fiery Aries. You may need to adjust plans for financial when Mars quincunxes restrictive Saturn in your 2nd House of Money on May 11. Another round of corrections—this time more in style than in deed—are due when Venus quincunxes Saturn on May 20.
