For the week of May 5, 2004

For All Signs Mercury watchers will be glad to know that this planet turned direct on April 30. Now that it is in direct motion, people will be more willing and able to make decisions, keep appointments, and settle long-standing issues. Those who work in occupations related to travel or communications of any type will have smoother days. Computer problems generated in April will be resolved. In general the routine of daily life will flow more smoothly with fewer snags and hitches in the corporate works.

Aries Your focus shifts at this time to matters of home, property, and family. Through the next seven weeks you may be handling heavy work around your home, and/or making repairs. Pay special attention to signs of leaks, whether water or gas, and repair them quickly.

Taurus This month of May is a particularly creative period for the Bulls. Being of the earth, you probably enjoy earthy activities, such as gardening, woodworking, or clay. Now is the time to focus on new plans for this next year of your life.

Your mind turns to the creative arts. You have a desire to make aesthetic improvements in your personal environment. So you may be choosing new carpet or rearranging furniture. You want to open and brighten the space around you now.

Cancer Mars will be traveling with you for seven weeks. This energy is best used to handle physically heavy projects or take initiatives that you might not otherwise tackle. If you are not choosing to deal honestly with this assertive energy, the common side effects are irritability and infections.

Leo This week brings adjustments to your plans that are not of your own making. You may feel compelled to sacrifice time or energy in order to assist another. It is not a particularly momentous or memorable time. You may feel a bit "off" physically.

Virgo This is a time of favorable news or events concerning any of the following: alimony, child support, corporate budget, insurance payoffs, loans, gifts, perks, inheritance, or investments. You have a wide range from which to gain at this time.

Libra You are feeling talkative and philosophical and others share that bent with you. An invitation comes your way for a light, but pleasant social engagement. Activities involving the law, travel, education, or publishing are positive.

Scorpio During the next few weeks any of the following areas may be highlighted with increased activity: travel, education, publishing, the internet, dealing with people from a distance or foreign cultures, issues of ethics and philosophical beliefs.

Sagittarius It appears likely that you will be involved in either education or travel this week, either of which would be suited to your interests. You could be demonstrating the results of a creative idea that has been percolating for several months.

Capricorn Someone close to you has hurt feelings and needs to talk about it or express it in some other way. It is possible that individual is you. The immediate circumstance is fairly simple, but the origination of the pain is old. A compassionate response is best.

Aquarius You may not feel quite well this week, but it is hard to identify just what is wrong. Maybe it is a passing virus, or maybe it is your allergies. Take your vitamins and get plenty of rest. Don't force your body to do what it clearly does not want to do.

Pisces Issues may arise in relationship to lovers and/or children that are irritating in some way. Beware of your tendency to invent what you think is happening. This may be a time in which it seems necessary to sacrifice your needs for the sake of another.
