Forecasts for week beginning Saturday May 10, 2014

By Jonathan Cainer

This week, as we watch the Moon grow full, we won’t be treated to the same beautiful, crimson eclipse that many saw last month and that will next grace the night sky in October. The Earth’s shadow doesn’t fall across the lunar surface every time the Sun and Moon oppose each other. But even when this alignment is only ‘two dimensional’ it is still a stunning sight. And this full moon will form a fairly close conjunction with Saturn, which speaks symbolically, of millions, worldwide, becoming aware of an emotional or, in some cases, physical need for better boundaries.

ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
Why not go for a run to lose weight – and take some sandwiches in case you get hungry along the way? Or why not try to please your critics? There are many exercises in futility that we can undertake if we wish to. But some processes are doomed from the outset! If you really want to make some progress this week, pursue a plan that actually stands a chance of working. And treat the cause, not the symptom, of a particular malaise. Think about what’s really going on. Ignore seductive but deceptive inclinations.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
Love, some people say, makes the world go round. Others believe money does that! But if any of us ever had to choose between feeling prosperous and feeling close to the people we care about, we wouldn’t hesitate. Your heart has always influenced your decisions far more than your desire to gain wealth. If you could wave a magic wand, you’d give all you’ve got to someone who needs help. Financially, that may be beyond you this week – but, emotionally, it’s perfectly possible. And it’s all that’s needed.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 22)
Some people believe that luck will be bestowed upon them if a black cat crosses their path. Others live in fear of inadvertently walking under ladders. Perhaps one day, researchers will confirm what intuitives already know, that luck is something we create (or destroy) for ourselves… depending on which beliefs we allow ourselves to place too much faith in! Your luck, this week, may not be good enough to win the lottery but it is good enough to get you what you need… as long as you have faith in yourself.

CANCER (June 23 – July 23)
What is going to happen next? You may well wonder. But the only reliable answer is another question. ‘What do you most want to happen next?’ And then another question. ‘What do you believe is most likely to happen next?’ If your belief is stronger than your desire, it will prove the stronger force in terms of influencing the events around you. Try believing in what you want! And remember, you’ve got a hat from which you can pull out a rabbit. All you’ve got to do is have faith in your ability to perform the trick.

LEO (July 24 – August 23)
There are some events that you cannot predict. There are others you can foresee with almost perfect certainty. Astrologers soon learn that there are two obstacles to be surmounted when attempting to make a prediction. The first is the invisible veil between the present and the future. The second is simply a fear of knowing. Could that be what’s obscuring your own insight into the future now? This week brings your opportunity to overcome an unnecessary anxiety and start making a series of marvellous discoveries.

VIRGO(August 24 – September 23)
We all struggle to be sensible. We all strive to be safe. Yet we all aspire to be inspiring. How are we supposed to find reason in a clearly crazy world full of glaring inconsistencies? Or to feel safe on a planet that’s riddled with mystery? If we are not here to enjoy the colour, the atmosphere, the craziness and the complete impossibility of it all, what have we come for? It’s very important for you to worry less and enjoy yourself more this week. And the planets currently insist that this is an entirely attainable aspiration!

LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
Words are wonderful things. There are dictionaries full of them. And libraries full of dictionaries. You would think, with all these words and all these experts, we might stand a chance of understanding one another – at least some of the time. But words are slippery. They may not speak as loudly as actions yet they can certainly whisper themselves insidiously into the wrong ears at the wrong moments. This week’s most important challenge for you, this week, is to go beyond words and embrace deep, powerful feelings.

SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
Look at how hard you have been working, how diligently you have been carrying out your duties and how self-sacrificingly you have been responding to requests. No wonder you feel as though there is so little of you left. Is this right? Is it necessary? Might you be doing too much because, somewhere within, you feel responsible for a problem? What do you owe and to whom do you owe it? And, most crucially, what do you owe to yourself? It’s time, this week, to revel in a greater sense of entitlement and a reduced sense of obligation

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
And that’s the end of your forecast for the week. I hope it made sense to you. Er… well, OK then, no it’s not. But I’ve started at the end because I need show you how somehow now, the cart is being put before the horse. The finale is being played before the overture. The cake is being eaten before it has been baked. If you’re looking too closely at how you want things to turn out, you may not be looking closely enough at what’s before you. And as you will soon see, what’s in front of you is better than you fear!

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
When people don’t want to make a decision, they prevaricate. They blame their circumstances and say things like, ‘I wanted to do this but I wasn’t able to. In the end, the situation I faced meant that I had to do that.’ No such easy opt-out is available for you this week. You’ve got to fight for the result you want, and create the outcome you most yearn to see. That may require determination and an almost heroic attitude. You might not succeed at first. But if you try your best, you’ll be amazed by what’s attainable.

AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
Are you really going somewhere? Or are you going nowhere? Should you dedicate the week to trying harder? Or to giving up and letting go? Or should you focus on the issues that are absolutely, definitely, probably, maybe worth thinking about. The kind of uncertainty you are experiencing is not the sort that stems from unclear communication. Emphatic and precise statements are being made. It’s just that these seem contradictory and inconsistent. If you don’t know what to do about something, don’t do anything… just yet.

PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
How happy would you like to feel this week? How pleased would you like to be with how things turn out? Be careful with that last question. The answer is potentially a problem. Your astrological potential is now most encouraging, but if you’re pinning too much on something falling into place, you’re robbing yourself of the chance to feel just fine, even if everything is less than ideal. The priority, right now, is to let yourself be cheerful, regardless of all else. Then (and possibly only then) will ‘all else’ fall into place.
