Horoscopes for May 11 to May 17

By: Mary Morrison

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18)

You might well be justified in questioning the behaviour of those round about you, particularly as you wish to create a favourable impression to a guest. However, I can only advise you to postpone any plans you might have for entertaining, as this weekend is not exactly the perfect time. Younger family members, in particular, are likely to be disturbed by Saturday’s planetary influences and confused by Neptune’s tricks on Sunday.

PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20)

Things might not go according to plan over the weekend but I am sure you will take it in your stride and make the best of a troublesome situation. Neptune, your ruling planet, is challenged by the Sun on Sunday, which is likely to throw a spanner in the works, socially speaking, and you might have to conjure up a last minute miracle. The New Moon in the sign of Taurus is likely to put you on a path to success if you happen to be involved in the field of commercial enterprise or looking for a new career.

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19)

Mars, your ruling planet, moves to challenge the powerful Pluto on Saturday, which could cause a few sparks to fly around the home front. Partners are likely to be unco- operative and you are likely to dig your heels in and ride out any impending storm. Sunday’s aspect between the Moon and Neptune could muddy the waters still further, leaving you with a nasty taste in your mouth. However, the Moon makes overtures to the harmonious Venus on Tuesday, when all will be forgiven and forgotten.

TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20)

Mercury enters your solar house of income and expenditure on Friday, which should help to get things moving in the cash flow department. You could be in for an entertaining weekend despite Saturday evening’s conflict, which will be whipped up by the Moon’s conflict with Pluto. However, Sunday’s conflict between the fiery Mars and the autocratic Pluto is bound to stir up a hornet’s nest between family members of younger and elder generations.

GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 21)

Others might not understand your viewpoint at the start of the weekend and all the persuasion in the world will not make one jot of difference. It might be a good idea to save your breath by using your ingenuity to divert their attention elsewhere. Sunday’s conflict between the Sun and Neptune is likely to play havoc with your imagination, leading you up the garden path into a blind alley. However, clarity of thought, coupled with reason, will resume on Monday.

CANCER (Jun 22 to Jul 22)

You seem to be resolving your difficulties by coming to terms with your situation and taking responsibility for your actions. Saturday’s conflict between your ruling planet, the Moon and Pluto, will no doubt encourage you to stand your ground and have your say in the matter. Tuesday’s aspect between the Moon and Venus is likely to induce an atmosphere of calm around you, which will empower you to make some wise decisions concerning income and expenditure.

LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22)

The Moon and the fiery Mars are at odds with the powerful Pluto on Saturday evening, which is likely to put the cat among the pigeons in your solar house of pleasure and romance. Younger family members are likely to be troublesome this weekend and you will have your work cut out in trying to be patient with them. You do need to be sure of what you want, particularly if you happen to be unattached and wishing that you were not so free, because Wednesday’s New Moon is likely to grant your wish.

VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sep 22)

You need not concern yourself over much with the day to day routine this weekend. The important thing is to enjoy living in the moment and to let your hair down, despite the snags that are likely to crop up on Saturday evening. Sunday’s conflict between the Moon and Neptune is likely to cause some confusion which might upset your plans. However, if you had had a good time the previous evening, you will not be too perturbed by the disruption, being only too happy to spend a quiet day in the garden!

LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 23)

Time seems to be a bit tight this weekend and you find yourself running hard to stand still on Saturday and you might imagine that someone is out to get you on Sunday. However, you can rest assured that it is only nebulous Neptune playing tricks with your imagination, as he is challenged by the Sun in the sign of Taurus. Tuesday is a day to take the bull by the horns and resolve any problems that you might have incurred in the field of business and commercial enterprise.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 to Nov 21)

You seem to be operating on a short fuse which is likely to ignite a bonfire on Saturday, when the Moon’s conjunction with Mars conflicts with your ruling planet Pluto. You might discover on Sunday that someone has been trying to pull the wool over your eyes (not a wise move) without regard to your ability to see through a scam. Monday morning is likely to bring a pleasant surprise when a visitor turns up out of the blue.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21)

The Moon’s conjunction with the eccentric Uranus on Saturday morning might cause a short circuit in the system, to say nothing of the disruption to follow when the Moon, Mars and Pluto run amok in your arena. However, if you can keep your head in a crisis, your optimism will see you home and dry. Sunday’s aspects are likely to turn out to be equally frustrating and it is important for you to realise that no one is to blame (not even you) so give yourself a break and relax.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19)

Things could get out of hand on Saturday, when you might find yourself over committed on the social, as well as the family front. Monday, fortunately, brings the steadying hand of Saturn to restore order and, at the same time, balance the books. Tuesday’s favourable aspect between the Moon and the harmonious Venus will no doubt serve to ingratiate you with those in authority and on whose approval you depend in order to complete a proposed project.
