WEEK OF May 16 – 22, 2022
As the week begins, the ground beneath you might be quaking, thanks to the total lunar eclipse in Scorpio that rocks the skies late on Sunday night. That’s as good a reason as any to find a new strategy for centering yourself. On Wednesday, May 18, mobilizing Mars and malleable Neptune align in your healthy sixth house—something that only happens every two years. This cosmic combo prompts you to think of wellness from a holistic perspective. What good will it do to flex your abs or sculpt your arms if you feel bad about yourself while doing all those crunches and curls? Instead of scrolling through fitspo influencer’s filtered feeds, surround yourself with affirming friends who model self-love from the inside out. Book a few empowering sessions with a life coach. Under these skies, the potent link between your mind and your body can reveal itself. Since the Mars-Neptune summit is in your sixth house of work, niggling details about your job could start to irritate the hell out of you. Don’t be a yes-person. Advocate for yourself without pointing fingers. It’s essential to stay on your A game around Wednesday and keep relationships humming along. At the very least, hear people out before you write them off. Put your heads together and devise a constructive solution, ideally one that doesn’t mean extra work for YOU.
Kiss life as a CIA agent goodbye come Friday, when the Sun blasts into Gemini and your adventurous, global and candid ninth house for a monthlong tour. Have you established trust, Libra? Then stop hiding your feelings! As the most diplomatic sign in the zodiac, you should be able to find the right words. The same applies should you need to confront someone. Since the ninth house oversees travel, skipping town before June 21 can refresh your internal feed immeasurably. Don’t grab the cheapest ticket you can find. Look at this as an opportunity to explore a part of the world you’ve been curious about forever. Even if you don’t make the trek, you can travel in a symbolic sense. Scope out meditation circles, self-development workshops and experiential education classes near you.
Single? Don’t rule out a long-distance relationship if you feel a strong connection with someone. It could be the start of a beautiful and adventurous connection—creative, romantic or business. And incidentally, the entrepreneurial gears will be cranking full force while the Sun zips through Gemini. Your optimism alone can convince people to back your big plans. Launch or grow an independent venture or, if you love your job, strive to be more “intrapreneurial.” You might get a new initiative up and running within your company—one that doesn’t entail a boss keeping tabs on you. Perfect!
Whenever Mercury goes retrograde, three to four times a year, the blurt alerts go off non-stop. This season, the messenger planet spun into reverse on May 10 in your outspoken ninth house, bumping those warnings up to code-red. On Sunday, Mercury backpedals into Taurus and your private eighth house, dropping the level down to orange—but you should still mind your Ps and Qs until it pivots direct on June 3. Since the eighth house is also associated with secrets, seduction and obsession, you could become fixated on a new love interest—or an extinguished flame (as retrogrades rule the past). Your judgment won’t be on point, so you might want to discuss any action you’re planning to take with a confidant who can talk you down. If you’re (both) unattached and the relationship ended because of bad timing, it MIGHT be worth exploring. If there are other factors at play, though, view them as possible deal breakers.
