Horoscopes for the week of May 18th
Dream BIG people! Once that’s done, DO BIG!
If I have ever given you an Astrology reading, you would know that we are made up of more than just our Sun sign (also referred to as your Zodiac sign). On the day you were born, ALL of the planets, along with the Sun and Moon, were positioned in the signs of the Zodiac, and each planet means something specific to your personality. Our Sun sign describes our basic character – it is what everybody knows and it represents our ego self. Our Moon sign, however, describes our emotional character – all that makes us feel content and secure.
The practice of astrology involves looking at planetary alignments above to interpret how we are affected below, and right now the planet Uranus is in the sign of Aries conjunct my Moon in the sign of Aries at 19 degrees. In Astrology, Uranus represents rebellion and liberation; its energy can be described as the lightning bolt of change that disrupts the status quo for good. You can imagine, then, how anxious I am to witness this energy play out in my emotional life.
To date, my experience has been rather curious. Specifically, it feels like this: an Aries moon is a feisty and impatient moon, which describes my emotional temperament. Most astrologers would interpret the influence of Uranus as agitating, leading to sudden outbursts and impulsivity, and this could very well be my reality if I was living a life of emotional repression! Thanks goodness I’m not. But the effects have been quite potent – I feel more passionately. I am able to change my emotional responses in an instant, and that has been liberating.
We all have Aries somewhere in our astrological make-up, and thus, the energy of Uranus is inspiring some kind of rebellion in us all. It will be important, however, not to waste this energy by rebelling without a cause. You have to know what it is you are fighting for and the battle must be worthy. In fact, if the battle is worthy, it may not seem like a battle at all. Our Uranian experience does not have to be so unsettling. It is possible to take a more grounded approach toward liberation. Thankfully, the Taurus New Moon this Monday, May 18th, at 12:13a.m. EST will give us all the grounding we need.
P.S., Mercury will be retrograde starting this Monday through June 12th so don’t be surprised if there are few false starts to freedom! Check your horoscopes below to see what’s in store for your Zodiac sign this week ahead, and don’t forget to read for your Ascendant sign too.
On the day you were born, all of the planets were positioned in the signs of the Zodiac – not just the Sun. To find out more about your full astrological make up, email Tracey for a personal Astrology reading at firstname.lastname@example.org
Aries: As an Aries, you are known to rebel against the status quo. If someone tells you to go left, you will purposefully go right. You are the ultimate rebel, and your warrior energy adds courage and bravado. But over the last couple of years, this need to rebel has been aimed at your own life. You are essentially rebelling against yourself, which brings a new kind of experience. If you have been contemplating personal change, the Taurus New Moon will help you to solidify new foundations.

Taurus: As a Taurus, you are more than capable of creating the kind of steady life that will serve you well. You are reliable, hard working, and you possess enough stamina and willpower to accomplish anything. The Taurus New Moon will help you kick start a new plan, so I suggest you rid yourself of any limiting beliefs that only get in your way. Such fear is what’s holding you back and stifling your progress. To channel the group En Vogue, “free your mind, and the rest will follow.” I’ve got a new Life Coaching special for May that might just be exactly what you need! Visit traceylrogers.com for details.
Gemini: If you were to simply allow yourself to meet new people, get out of your immediate surroundings, and leave the comfort of your local environment, you may very well discover that there’s a whole new world out there challenging you to dream big and live life on your terms. This kind of buzz and connection is exactly what you need to evolve and expand the life you seek to create. In fact, the Taurus New Moon may help to solidify a new mindset, shifting your perspective.

Cancer: There is an urgent need to be liberated from unhealthy work environments, toxic colleagues, and other career restrictions. At the same time, there is an urgent need to make sure that your work gets done, while properly responding to the demands being forced on you. This is the perfect combination for stress, dear Cancer, and the bigger task in front of you is to keep your cool. The only way to overcome is through social engagement. This is a happy hour kind of week. I’ve got a new Life Coaching special for May that might just be exactly what you need! Visit traceylrogers.com for details.
Leo: Travel, educational endeavors, cultural learning, increased faith and awareness have all enhanced your life. You, dear Leo, are in pursuit of enlightenment, immersed in an adventurous journey of truth. So how does this affect your career? Is it possible that you may have to change careers? Maybe not, but something is going to have to give in order for you to incorporate this new spiritual way of being into your profession. Set some new intentions around the Taurus New Moon.

Virgo: Lately, the sky has been your limit. But I’m not sure if you’re aware of this. Are you? Are you taking the time to invest and explore new territory? If not, why? What’s holding you back? If you’re trying to plan the way, then that may be your problem. The energy above is encouraging you to step outside of your comfort zone, leave events to chance, and simply go with the flow. Keep things loose. Be free. Be wild. Be exposed. Don’t worry about what happens next, and see what happens. I’ve got a new Life Coaching special for May that might just be exactly what you need!

Libra: For a relationship-oriented sign, you sure keep shying away from important commitments! It’s not like you to be single, and maybe that’s the problem. It is possible to live your life and commit to another. But of course, you have to find the right partner who understands the importance of interdependence; you too could stand to learn the importance of interdependence (Libras are often as clingy as a Cancer). Strike a balance. Trust your instincts to merge. Trust the other person too. I’ve got a new Life Coaching special for May that might just be exactly what you need!

Scorpio: The Taurus New Moon represents a fresh start on the relationship front. But of course, this means you will have to create space for important others. For a while now, you’ve been carving out your daily life to include more of what you enjoy doing. Everything from time management, to health management, to your general well being, has undergone some kind of emancipation in order to create a stress free life. The same goes for committed love; you’ll have to make time for that too. I’ve got a new Life Coaching special for May that might just be exactly what you need! Visit traceylrogers.com for details.
Sagittarius: As you continue to tap into your authentic self creating space for the people and projects that you love, your day-to-day affairs will need to be revamped, and there’s no better time than the Taurus New Moon to identify new ways to carve out your days. A practical approach will be necessary; I know that you are anxious to indulge your artistic talents along with any other pleasurable pursuits. But for the sake of sanity, a set schedule would yield long-term enjoyment. I’ve got a new Life Coaching special for May that might just be exactly what you need! Visit traceylrogers.com for details.
Capricorn: The Taurus New Moon is prime time to set a few new intentions when it comes to creative projects. This is fertile energy, Capricorn – whether you’re looking to expand your family or do a little home renovating, you’ve got positive energy on your side. However, FYI, Mercury will be retrograde, which could delay progress. But don’t let this deter you from tapping into your artistic genius in order to give birth to a new idea (or maybe even a baby?) that is authentically you.

Aquarius: Mercury retrograde could put a damper on romance or the start of a new family, but it’s only temporary dear Aquarius. It seems there are many other things that need to be solidified before you can even begin to get to the fun stuff. For starters, a new home might be necessary if you’re not already on the market, and tidying up loose ends like a degree program or other training should be prioritized. All of this will put you in a better position to focus on matters of the heart. I’ve got a new Life Coaching special for May that might just be exactly what you need!

Pisces: Activity on the domestic front will keep you busy Pisces, and it’s about time – this is one area you may have been neglecting. Projects started at home should be finished now while Mercury is retrograde. If your physical residence is not impacted, then it’s your emotional self that needs some nurturing. In fact, as you become keen on prioritizing life as you see fit based on your own needs and values, a sense of emotional security should be high on your list. Don’t forget about you.
