Horoscopes for May 14th to May 21st, 2017

Overview

Mercury returns to Taurus on May 16th. Mercury first entered this sign on March 31st, but then stationed Rx and retreated to Aries. Facts and conversations were left incomplete, but now you can pick up the thread. Information is absolutely grounded in Taurus - watch for details about what’s most valuable, lucrative or safe. 

Saturn Rx in Sagittarius trines Uranus in Aries on May 19th, giving you the perfect blend of change and progress. New (Uranus) rules (Saturn) are the theme, with the added benefit of room to move within those rules. Saturn/Uranus can also manifest a desired change that you’ve been working towards. “Working” is the key word - Saturn is not about free passes. This aspect is part of a larger Grand Fire Trine (involving the Leo North Node) that’s in effect until June 13th. 

Also on May 19th, Venus in Aries opposes Jupiter Rx in Libra, presenting a big, beautiful culmination. What you want (Venus) will be increased, and taken as far as it can go by Jupiter. This could match or exceed your hopes. But due to the nature of the opposition, exaggeration and projection are also factors - there may be too much of a good thing. Or, perhaps what you get (and love) will be the exact opposite of what you want. Venus will be at the degree where it stationed Rx on March 4th, so this opposition can be seen as a conclusion to any Venus retrograde issues. 

Still talking about May 19th, we also see the Taurus Sun squaring the South Node in Aquarius/North Node in Leo. A square to the Nodes provides a choice, as you’re challenged to move forward (towards the North Node). In this case, the Taurus Sun rules the North Node, so you’ll be looking at new ways to take pride in your existing resources. How can you create more out of what you have? How can you be recognized for/take pride in your personal values? As the Sun enters Gemini on May 20th, choices, information and complexity will increase. You can use this to your advantage - if option A doesn’t work, try B or C. 

Aries

Mercury into your sector of personal resources gives you the facts about earned money and/or values. This down-to-business influence can present you with undeniable information about how much you’re worth. Information that was first presented around March 31st can now be confirmed.

Meanwhile, Venus in your sign opposing Jupiter Rx presents a culmination that enhances love, happiness or attraction. Too, you could end up giving/spending more than anticipated, depending on projected expectations. Events will be connected to March 4th (when Venus stationed Rx in your sign). 

The Sun in your sector of personal resources squares the Nodes, bringing you to a fork in the road regarding self-worth and getting paid for what you create, or what brings you joy. As the Sun moves into your communication sector, you should discover multiple options for the above - there will be more than one way to access sources that are financially and emotionally lucrative. Then again, you could end up procrastinating, if you’re not serious about expressing/creating something special .

The Sun in your sign squares the Nodes, giving you an opportunity to do things differently.
