The Weekly Horoscope

Week from 18 to 24 May 2015

General Tendencies
Everyday Life / Profession:

The Taurus New Moon has barely come to an end and the Moon is already changing to the sign of Gemini, where Mercury and Mars are located. The Moon must now also feel Saturn's critical gaze since simply nothing escapes the latter's eyes in the opposing sign of Sagittarius. All-knowing and exalted, Saturn stands there and allows you to feel every one of your little evasions and uncertainties. Have you already apologized? You presumably do this a number of times due to a bad conscience. Venus is now in opposition to Pluto and indicates a similar scenario. You feel weak, helpless, and guilt-ridden in view of a power that you cannot defend yourself against. There are now people who capitulate and simply subject themselves to this power, and there are people who now start to run the rat race without ever really arriving anywhere (Mars runs into tension with Neptune). Doing things for the sake of doing them does not result in much. It would be better to reflect.

Partnership / Love:

When Venus (in Cancer) is in opposition to Pluto (in Capricorn), you will be torn out of your dreams and confronted with reality. When you get involved with something (already happened), you must live with the consequences and assume responsibility. Mercury enters Gemini and changes its direction. Sneaking away is not possible - even if Neptune offers such a possibility. This is actually not an offer, but a test.

Everyday Life / Profession:

Jupiter promises you a good time in the longer run. Saturn and Pluto show the hurdles that you must overcome in order to arrive at this good time. Saturn makes you feel ignorant and naive; Pluto makes you feel powerless. There are people who have more knowledge and power than you. People hear you think "who cares?" and then you already notice on your own that you find this quite hard to accept. Perhaps you are seriously thinking about advanced training to fill the gap? Or you are searching for ways out to circumvent a powerful authority? You are inventive when it comes to saving your head, your workplace, or your liberal lifestyle. Best day: Sunday! (Moon in Leo near Jupiter)

Partnership / Love:

Venus in Cancer wakes up from its dreams and must admit that personal relationships are not just there for pleasure. They also involve serious situations that cannot be sidestepped. Cannot be sidestepped? This can and must not be true! Then you just have to jump over them! And, if this does not work, use a trick.

Everyday Life / Profession:

What does the Taurus New Moon want? It occurs in opposition to Saturn and quite apparently intends to challenge this tough guy. The weapons are thinking and language (Mars in Gemini, Mercury in Gemini, soon the Moon in Gemini, and ultimately also the Sun in Gemini). This means knowledge against a know-it-all attitude, the normal person against the elite, and healthy common sense against an academic title. In case these terms mean nothing to you, this may involve friendships or neighborly circumstances that need some clarification. Or the continually recurring topic of a sense of self-worth, which always becomes apparent when someone stands in front of you who you would really like to admire (but prohibit yourself from doing so).

Partnership / Love:

Venus is in opposition to Pluto. These are moments in which you may feel uneasy due to a sense of powerlessness. But if you feel powerless, you are giving someone else power over you. If you think about it, you fly into a rage because you cannot permit something like this. The topic of the "tough person" can also easily be detected in love. It is too obvious.

Everyday Life / Profession:

Mercury comes to a standstill during this week and then goes retrograde. Mars is steadily approaching Mercury in the sign of Gemini. Right after the New Moon, the Moon now also reaches Gemini, which very much emphasizes the restless Gemini quality. You sense your wish to go further and get involved with other things. But at the same time, you also have the need to pause and become conscious of what has just happened. There is a conflict within you and you feel insecure. You do many trivial things in order to just do something and distract yourself so that you do not need to reflect too much. But thinking about things and reflecting would be really important now. The Taurus New Moon is an indication that you need to find peace and quiet. Saturn in Sagittarius - the old know-it-all, admonisher, and preacher of morals - seems to be disruptive. You cannot avoid taking these warnings seriously.

Partnership / Love:

Venus in opposition to Pluto describes a feeling of powerlessness. It becomes increasingly difficult for you to ignore and suppress what is negative. You feel like you are in prison. You pace back and forth in your little cell to give yourself the feeling that you have freedom of movement. But if your thoughts are just turning in circles, they also feel like they are in prison.

Everyday Life / Profession:

Venus in Cancer is in opposition to Pluto. The rose-colored glasses get darker. Your situation is more serious than you had thought – perhaps just as serious as you feared? Nothing has been decided yet! By its standstill, Mercury indicates that everything must still be examined one more time. There are too many inconsistencies. Sometimes another person will try to benefit from such an unresolved situation by offering a simple solution. Do not allow yourself to accept it! During this week, your task could be to clearly and distinctly say "no!" You can practice it in front of the mirror and try to convince yourself with the "no." This can be practiced. Venus in Cancer shows that you are afraid of losing your connection with the community and being left alone in the end.

Partnership / Love:

This now looks like a confrontation that you would prefer to avoid. Someone seems to impress you very much. Mars and Mercury indicate that someone (you?) is trying to get out an affair, but the topic/person/problem cannot be spirited away. On Sunday, you have an idea or get an offer of help.

Everyday Life / Profession:

The Taurus New Moon is related to your social position and commitment. In turn, these are associated with moral norms that are important to you. There is now an emphasis on the Gemini element, which involves an exchange of information and transport routes. Mercury, which turns retrograde, indicates disorder in the flow of information or traffic. Because Neptune is also involved, you may lose your bearings or get lost in a fray. You could also lose your way due to wrong information or be overwhelmed by a multitude of possibilities. This situation requires guardrails or a boss who gives clear instructions. Do you see a task here that you could assume - perhaps due to your social position?

Partnership / Love:

Your personal relationships also seem to sometimes need a boss. If you take excessive charge of this task, your partner will have no desire to follow your instructions anymore. And if your partner has a bit too much respect for you, he/she will find all types of excuses to be "liberated" from you. But you may also have the feeling of losing your freedom due to the relationship.

Everyday Life / Profession:

The New Moon indicates that you require a new goal, but how can you concentrate on something new when the old has not yet been taken care of? Mercury, which now turns retrograde, shows that you are searching for meaning and recently already had a premonition, as well as being touched by an idea. You must now track down this premonition or idea to find out what it could be. Perhaps you need certain dialog partners once again or can read about this in the records. You should build upon something or pick up a thread again. On Sunday - when the Sun is in opposition to Saturn and the Moon is inspired by Jupiter and Uranus - a light could turn on in your mind. Is it possible that this new goal is not something that you really want to do? Or do you think that you are not capable of doing it?

Partnership / Love:

The connection of Venus and Pluto indicates that you cannot claim that nothing has happened. There appears to be a deep emotional connection that you can hardly evade and can actually drive you out of your mind. You make excuses and try to make everything look less dramatic, but just these repeated attempts alone show how helpless you actually are.

Everyday Life / Profession:

When Mercury goes retrograde, you can return to an offer and once again weigh the pros and cons - after all, this is something that you especially like to do. Saturn in Sagittarius urges you to finally get to the point and strive for a clear goal. But the planets in the sign of Gemini show that you are not really listening and are too occupied to concentrate on one single thing. Maybe there are too many offers? Saturn stays stubborn, so that the Gemini Sun on the weekend also recognizes the necessity of acknowledging the goal. Mars in Gemini will help you to put out the feelers so you can perceive opportunities. You have enormous contact energy and are able to use the different sources of information and assistance.

Partnership / Love:

Saturn in Sagittarius (your partner?) appears to remind or warn the planets in Gemini (you?) time and again. But the planets in the sign of Gemini are always very busy and actually never have time. Saturn can also demand that you take the time for something or someone. Mercury - which has now come to a standstill before going retrograde - indicates that you start to realize this. Saturn's warnings show their effect.

Everyday Life / Profession:

Mars was "warned" by Saturn and joins Mercury, which has just come to a standstill. On the one hand, this indicates the wish to quickly take action or distract yourself with all types of preoccupation from unpleasant things. On the other hand, it points to an insecurity (Mars-Neptune) because you suspect that something is going wrong. When Mercury changes direction, it is time to pause and rethink things. The Taurus New Moon also indicates a change of course. And since the New Moon accepts Saturn's warnings, it would be good to consider these warnings. Saturn, the sign of Taurus, and Mercury's standstill are indications of the prudence that is now necessary. There is strength in repose. Mars in Gemini and in tension with Neptune urgently needs this rest but can also get it – thanks to Neptune.

Partnership / Love:

Venus in opposition to Pluto increases what is romantic into the passionate. Are you still involved at this point? Do you trust yourself to go one step further? To let yourself go? To get involved? To plunge into uncertainty? When an encounter turns into a relationship, everything changes. As soon as the dream comes true, the dream no longer exists. Then different kinds of dreams appear. You are standing at a threshold.

Everyday Life / Profession:

The New Moon occurs in opposition to Saturn in Sagittarius. Last week, the topic was boundaries that you should reflect upon. You will take these boundaries with you into the new Moon month and grow through them. However, Saturn stands not only for boundaries but also for standards, moral guidelines, and laws. Or for inhibitions and guilt feelings. And since Saturn is in Sagittarius, your own standards are probably what can become the problem. This problem could be found in a lack of restraint, carelessness, and abandon as indicated by the planets in the sign of Gemini. But those who swing the moral hammer too much may want to have a less constrained life. It is so easy to reproach someone else. You believe that you are distracting from yourself…

Partnership / Love:

This New Moon and the planets in Gemini show that a lot is happening for you on the interpersonal level - even if you try to defend yourself against it (Saturn). Admit it: You are flattered when someone knocks on your door and feel powerful when you can turn others down. Self-determined loneliness is much more pleasant than when this state is forced upon you.

Everyday Life / Profession:

The bad conscience bothers a Capricorn time and again. But it is so useful! You do not need any rules because you constantly question your own behavior and punish yourself with the corresponding thoughts. There are supposedly also Capricorns who are still far from becoming real Capricorns. If you are one of these, you should listen more to your qualms of conscience and let them show you the way. If you suppress this bad conscience, you will have to pay for it later. Take your thoughts and feelings seriously! You have so much wisdom within you. You could accept this and lead a good and honest life - or get stuck in a constant feeling of inferiority. You have the choice!

Partnership / Love:

Love is the only thing that can help you in the long run so that the wonderful soft core beneath your hard shell can come to the surface. For this to happen, you need the fullest trust and an absolute sense of security. You probably do not feel this at the moment. The planets indicate an insecurity. You notice it when you start to control your partner or no longer want to allow any encounters.

Everyday Life / Profession:

The Taurus New Moon could deepen the perception that you should learn something that is not written in books. Saturn indicates higher knowledge and wisdom. It indicates the laws of life, which have already been valid since primeval times and cannot be erased by a so-called modern lifestyle. Mercury's standstill and about-face shows that you have already understood this to a certain degree. Are you willing to open up to this "school" and do things differently than before? On Thursday, the Moon and Venus in Cancer are in opposition to Pluto. Archetypal female energies will connect on this day and show an almost uncanny power. It is a power that comes from the gut. The human body is a reservoir for knowledge about the achievements of the ancestors…

Partnership / Love:

The connection of Venus and Pluto shows interpersonal ties that go very deep. If you would like to avoid such a connection, Mercury, Mars, and Neptune offer to help in your escape. But you would not only escape from your partner but - above all - from yourself. The constellations indicate that you will come to both yourself and your partner.

Everyday Life / Profession:

If things are a bit more difficult for you now, you should not immediately become pessimistic. Things are actually not that bad at all. If you have a childlike disposition, everything that is actually reasonable and adult appears to be strict and demanding to you. Then you would prefer to have things somewhat less strenuous. But there are supposedly also Pisceans who really put their shoulder to the wheel and constantly want to perform well. If you feel that this applies to you, you should think about for whom you want to achieve so much and why you even want to do this. Who or what determines your self-esteem? Is it perhaps the time which you have been born into? Or is it society with its demands and unwritten laws? You actually just need to appeal to yourself.

Partnership / Love:

In your personal relationship, it seems that the issue is asserting yourself. You feel powerless and repeatedly think that your partner is superior to you and does not really need you. Do you actually need your partner? And if you do, is this all that bad? After all, two people complement each other. Each of them brings something to the relationship. You are also a benefit for your partner.
