Starcast for the week beginning May 25th, 2016
ARIES [Mar 21 - Apr 19]
Prepare for a significant energy shift this week, as your ruler Mars retrogrades back into Scorpio for a deeper dive, on Friday, May 27. Scorpio is ruled by your older, wiser brother Pluto, the planet of the Soul. Mars has reversed his focus and instead of charging ahead, Mars, known as the ego, is now pointing back to the Soul and asking what you desire most at this stage of your evolutionary journey. Mars in Scorpio will lead you into some fated turns that are destined to help you eliminate all those things in the way that are not adding on to you. In order for evolution to occur, involution must come first, which means a dying away of something old, so something better can be reborn in its place. Real growth can create a rub, activating feelings of vulnerability, but the results of your leaning into the turn will be noteworthy. Know that those tender corners may be exposed but that will just become fodder and fuel to empower you forward.
Sink all the way down to the root of a feeling and it will direct your next steps!
TAURUS [Apr 20 - May 21]
Your ruler Venus has just exited your sign, but that does not mean that the value of her presence is lost, as she enters your house of earnings and all those things that hold meaning to help sweeten the pot. In addition, Mercury is finally shaking the dust off and moving forward in your sign, while forming strong angles of support to Pluto and the North Node, the symbol for your destiny. You gain some information about your future that will have a way of securing the direction of your life. You are beginning to feel a deeper sense of knowing who you are, what you want, and how you are going to go about getting it. Mars does retrograde back into your house of relationships on Friday, May 27, so there may be some cleaning and clearing to do on that front. In addition, if anyone messes with anyone you love, they will surely hear about it.
Throw your weight around and you will not only show them who's boss, you will move impossible mountains!
GEMINI [May 22 - Jun 21]
You have just experienced an emotional peak and now with being on the other side of it, there is relief from a mounting pressure, as Saturn in your opposite sign has been squaring Jupiter in your house of home and the emotional body, not to mention the recent full moon in your opposing sign joined by Mars. You may have been coming emotionally unhinged, vulnerable and unable to effectively dissipate some hard feelings, but now that your ruler Mercury is moving direct, you will be slowly putting the feeling pieces back together again. To improve your situation even further, loving Venus just entered your sign to attract more ease, beauty and balance into your life. As much as Venus is here to remind you of all that has become so sorely out of balance, she is the first in line to grace your life with a little more peace, harmony, and ease. You will also feel to be emanating a magnetism that is allowing you to naturally attract more of what pleases you with less effort.
Lean into those softer vibes and you will strike that magic chord!
CANCER [Jun 22 - Jul 22]
With so many planets retrograde as of late, it can feel at times as if you are losing ground. Life however, is surely happening and there is a world of content that your Soul is working through on the inner planes, which in the end is far more productive long term than any kind of outer progress. What helps you immensely this week is that Mars retrogrades back into fellow water sign Scorpio on Friday, May 27, which means you are not only going to be getting in touch what your heart wants, you will have enough planetary punch to hit whatever you are after straight out of the park. A new kind of confidence is going to fuel your jets, a kind of energy that sets you apart from the rest. You find that tapping in to the root of your desires has a way of energizing a new yet solidly sustaining life force. Mercury is also moving forward now, although it can take a handful of days to pick up the kind of speed that feels like all is back on course.
You do find that sweet spot this week Cancer, your Soul's center of gravity, and because of it, you are bound to feel better than ever!
LEO [Jul 23 - Aug 22]
The practical approach pays off now with Mercury moving direct in earth sign Taurus, while forming a Grand Trine with Pluto and the North Node, the symbol for your destiny. Your efforts in the work arena will begin to bear fruit in tangible ways and you will feel the truth that the time invested was well worth the grind. Loving Venus is now in Gemini in your house of like minded others, suggesting this weekend could bring you together with people who feel like your tribe, as you connect and collaborate in mind bending ways. Mars retrogrades out of fellow fire sign Sag and into the depths of Scorpio on Friday, May 27, bringing you into a piece of your past that you may wish to forget. Mars will tour through this sector of your chart until early August where you will feel re-inspired and empowered to return from the deep. Know that until then, you will be traveling to the depths of your own Soul to work through any left over karmic content, which will in fact free you up in liberating ways.
Submerge yourself in whatever is drawing you in and you will emerge shining brighter than the sun!
VIRGO [Aug 23 - Sep 22]
You have just seriously come through a Soul chute and people are starting to truly take notice. This will not be some temporary turn, but a result of something you have earned long term.

LIBRA [Sep 23 - Oct 23]
A wild energetic shift occurs this week, as Mars retrogrades out of fun loving Sag and back into intense Scorpio, in your house of self reliance. This can have a way of driving you back into yourself, energizing activities that strengthen yourself and your own bottom line. On the other hand, your ruler Venus just entered fellow air sign Gemini, and she can be as social as ever in this sign. With that being said, it will be important to strike a balance this week between output and input, and in knowing when to take a time out, and when to go all in. Thankfully, Mercury is now merrily on its way, so anything that set you back should be straightening itself out. Mercury also connects boldly to Pluto, the planet of empowerment, and the North Node, the symbol for your destiny, helping to stabilize your inner space, so you can be stronger for the world at large.
First stop, feed your Soul, from there everything will find a way to flow!
SCORPIO [Oct 24 - Nov 21]

However, Mars is still retrograde and backing into your sign for a second look around on Friday, May 27, and he's not leaving until he's scoped the whole place out. As intense as Mars transiting through Scorpio is for the rest of the world, you will feel quite at home with his presence there. In many respects, Mars will be egging you on, feeding you energy like never before and heating up all that your Soul desires now. Loving Venus enters Gemini in your house of the Soul which may have you re-connecting with others from another time, or else having you in deep review of those intimate connections of old.

CAPRICORN [Dec 22 - Jan 19]

AQUARIUS [Jan 20 - Feb 19]
It is far easier to know how to proceed in love and in life when you know where you stand. Being in the dark makes it next to impossible to know which road to hoe if you have lost a clear direction. You may have also not seen eye to eye with a loved one as of late and felt as if you were not getting anywhere. Mercury stationed direct in Taurus, in your house of home and the emotional body on Sunday, May 22, and is helping you feel as if you are making some headway again, although it could take a few more days still before life clicks back into place.

PISCES [Feb 19 - Mar 20]
Tension has been high and stress in places has been soaring, as old themes in some of your personal connections may have felt to be a one step forward and two steps back phenomena, making it feel like growth could never be gained. However, Mercury picks up his pace in a forward moving stride now and connects securely with Jupiter and Pluto to grant you more gumption in your verbal exchanges where you draw a strong line in the sand. This also does not allow others to walk all over you nor will you be giving any of your own power away. Benevolent Venus enters your house of home and the emotional body to help nurture and nourish those feeling spaces just where you need it most. Lastly, Mars retrogrades back into fellow water sign Scorpio, creating a surge of optimism that energizes a natural faith that the right thing will happen, knowing if its meant to be, it will be.
Trust your innermost self and it won't steer you wrong!
