There could be misunderstandings involving friends, finances or social media, as Mercury is retrograde until June 22. Saturn squares Uranus on Monday and Tuesday, which could also affect your bank balance or your peer group. Despite the disruptions, keep your hopes, dreams and wishes alive! Your motto for the week is from birthday great, writer Salmon Rushdie. “We all dream things into being … So things are often passing from the imagined realm into the real world.”
Are you tired of being a paddock-bound Bull? This week the planets rev up your usually tentative Taurean nature and you’ll feel more restless than usual. So it’s time to break free from boring boundaries (especially at work) and start exploring the world around you (in creative and Covid safe ways). Venture beyond your comfort zone. However – with Mercury reversing through your money zone until June 22 – be extra careful and thorough when it comes to financial matters.
A much-cherished goal or dream has temporarily been put on hold. With Uranus, Saturn and retrograde Mercury all stirring up your international wanderlust zone, it will be a while before you can escape on a globe-trotting adventure again. So make sure you are patient and stay Covid safe! Look for exciting travel options in your own neck-of-the-woods. And don’t plan any major social events or local getaways until after June 22, when your ruler Mercury finally moves forwards.
Saturn squares Uranus, and Mercury is reversing through your self-sabotage zone so there’s a tendency to be negative and self-critical. Despite the challenges, don’t give up … be adventurous and keep going! Your motto for the week is from actress (and birthday great) Nicole Kidman, “Life has got all those twists and turns. You’ve got to hold on tight and off you go.” Channel your energy into meditation, contemplation, relaxation, yoga, journal writing and being kind to yourself.
Restless Lions – this week there’s the disruptive Saturn/Uranus square, where the status quo is questioned and rigid patterns are broken down. Where do you need to make serious changes in your life? Try to get the balance right between fulfilling responsibilities to other people (especially at home and work) and personal freedom. With mighty Mars charging through your sign, the more proactive you are the better. But don’t pounce until you have a well thought out plan.
Mercury (your patron planet) is currently reversing through your career zone. So it’s not a good time to initiate a professional project, apply for a promotion or look for a new job. Instead, wait until after Mercury goes direct on June 22. When it comes to a problem with a work colleague or a close friend, avoid being impatient. There are no quick fixes at the moment. It’s a case of one step forwards and two steps backwards but if you are persistent, you’ll eventually make progress.
When it comes to sport, children, romance, friendship, creativity, hobbies and beliefs, be proactive and shake things up. If you sit on the fence and let things slide, then change will come in a more radical form that’s harder to manage. And is it time to review and refresh your peer group list, and add some exciting new faces? With Mercury still retrograde (until June 22) be extra careful when you’re walking, cycling and driving, plus double-check all travel arrangements.
Money matters look confusing, as Mercury reverses through your joint finances zone. And is a family matter or a relationship issue weighing you down? Strive to get the balance right between fulfilling your responsibilities to other people and creating change for yourself. Uranus demands that you let go of some old habits, routines and beliefs that are no longer serving you. Then there will be room for new experiences, opportunities and people to come into your world.
Be extra careful how you give and receive information (especially in close relationships) as Mercury is still reversing through your partnership zone. If you have doubts or concerns, then don’t hesitate to double-check. Plus avoid making major purchases, starting joint ventures or signing important contracts until after June 22. Be patient and focus your attention on revising, researching or reworking current projects. When it comes to a work matter or a health issue, expect the unexpected!
Expect some frustrations and delays, as retrograde Mercury confuses communication and slows things down. Try not to over-react. There will always be projects to complete and mountains to climb. But perhaps a close friend or a work colleague needs your attention and affection right here and right now? Saturn (the planet of structure) squares Uranus (the planet of improvisation). So do your best to get the ratio right between being a gung-ho Goat and a cautious Capricorn.
With Mercury still retrograde (and Saturn squaring Uranus) prepare for a few frustrating problems to head your way. Making a snap decision seems like a good idea but it could backfire. You also need to slow down and think twice before you blurt out something controversial that you later regret. Be clever and uncharacteristically cautious, as you consider situations carefully before you respond. You’re hungry for change but don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater!
Prepare for some drama as Saturn, Uranus and retrograde Mercury stir up issues with a relative or friend. Use your diplomatic talents to find practical solutions to current problems. The stars encourage ambitious plans and you’re keen to impress others, but don’t promise more than you can realistically deliver. The more disorganised you are, the more difficult the week will be. Contributing your talent and hard work to a community project will help to balance the karmic ledger.
