May 2017 Horoscope by Elaine Marolakos Edelson

Astrowheellg* Mercury conjuncts Uranus, which translates to hasty or principled actions. Your Sun Sign is your theme. Your Rising Sign equals daily wealth, health, passion and purpose. Read both for true results.

TAURUS April 21-May 21

You’re thrust into the fray of money-making ventures, potential earnings and brilliant insight bordering on eccentric, maybe even crazy. As you face the mirror with statements about your worth, talents and ineptitudes, you have a profound realization. There’s only one you on this planet. Now let’s get down to the real matter. What do you want? Stop saying yes to everything. Concentrate on what gives you joy. Look at the one group who wants you. Oh, clue.

GEMINI May 22-June 21

Mars is in Gemini. You’re pumped with adrenaline and ideas, possibly ammo if you’re defensive. If you’re also an Aries or Leo Sun Rising or Moon sign, you might not sleep until July. Blurting or hurling accusations are not effective ways to communicate. Vulnerabilities: lungs, arms, head, eyes and blood system. You can sway the opinion of others to get them on board with common goals. Do it with enthusiasm, innovative ideas and an outpouring of equality.

CANCER June 22-July 22

Your career is on fire with possibilities. Choice clients and groups show themselves to induct you into their hall of fame. You may also join a specialized faction or have a meeting with experts where you are the leader. You’re either employee of the month or you gain a following that leads to more cash. Computer advancements or business-strategy upgrades might equal mental burnout. Revel in your new status, but remember to pace the process of success.

LEO July 23-Aug. 23

Whether it’s travel, philosophy, legal maneuvers or spiritual awakenings that get your attention, the time to act is now. As your inner self discovers alternate ways of thinking, believing and expressing, you feel the need to initiate sudden contracts or to make impulsive declarations. Have concrete data or solid results to back up findings. Author Malcolm Gladwell says you’re an expert if you’ve put in 10,000 consistent hours honing your craft. Just don’t sell yourself short.

VIRGO Aug. 24-Sept. 23

Estate planning or financial joint ventures are on the agenda. Give attention to credit cards, getting the best rates on insurance and consolidating debt, especially as you shuffle investments of time, energy and cash with others (accountant, attorney, spouse, exes, partners or dependents). You may feel compelled to invest in something or someone that’s near and dear to your heart. Value spiritual investments and connections as well as monetary ones, and you’ll do well.

LIBRA Sept. 24-Oct. 23

Ponder how and who you want to be. You’re the writer, director, actor and producer of your world. Upheaval, solitude or being swept off of your feet throw you off axis. Maybe it’s not either or. You can create a bridge to happiness by being present with what’s in the moment. Giving up independence while partnering leaves you in emotional and financial debt. Dreams hold clues. Find your center in extremes and hit the jackpot.

SCORPIO Oct. 24-Nov. 22

If you’re a holistic or medical specialist, or otherwise deal in the well-being of others, prepare for upcoming partnerships and clients who suddenly come into being and benefit from your talents. Though it may seem like there’s a chokehold on earnings, it’s a phase of self-worth assessment. As you care for yourself, others will step forward to support you (in health, with wealth and with abundance). Give equal percentages to your wellness and to others.

SAGITTARIUS Nov. 23-Dec. 21

Unexpected romance spurs creative solutions in business. Or is it the other way around? Own your part in romance, with children and with your healing inner child. Productivity is yours when you allow ideas to flow without self-editing. To keep from falling into past, negative patterns – where your needs weren’t met – be vocal without judgment. Who you are is who you’ll attract. Inspired bursts can lead to money-making missions and family adventures.

CAPRICORN Dec. 22-Jan. 20

There’s a flurry of activity at home, with family, regarding your role in life. You feel stirred to revisit childhood memories or playfulness, which might include having a child (or at least the fun of baby making sans baby, wink, wink) or visiting a theme park. More seriously, you might reminisce about mom or parenthood. Sadness is overridden by reinventing yourself through fun. Memoir? Redecorate? Virtual reality video games? The uninhibited you emerges. Oh, please allow it.

AQUARIUS Jan. 21-Feb. 19

Last month I asked, “Foot in mouth disease? Easily cured by pausing before speaking.” This still holds true except something’s changed. Maybe you’re that much wiser or innovative. As you nest with family, you also formulate plans of action. These might include moving, writing or formulating a teaching course or web comic. You come up with ways in which to grow quickly via small trips, too. Budget cash. Small moments make the bigger picture. Heed both.

PISCES Feb. 20-March 20

The wellspring of ideas, solutions and realizations helps you feel simultaneously blessed and way too aware, bordering raw. You ask, “Has it always been this way? Have I been this way? How didn’t I see this before?” Inner communication is your path to the purest form of honesty with others. What’s required now is valued action. You’ll have opportunities to make quick cash or reinvest time, energy or resources to double your return.

ARIES March 21-April 20

You’re shot out of your righteous canon wielding morals, objectives and, for some, possibly occasional tyrannical bellowing. Aries, Rachel Maddow comes to mind! Please shy from “I want what I want” tantrums. Your presence alone can inspire others to action. Venus is in Aries, too. Ooh, you’re so magnetic and charming. When asking for a raise or increasing your income, act on long-range security. Invest in people (yourself), tried-and-true methods and your ultimate values.
