Weekly Astrology for May 14, 2018 by Chris Flisher
We will witness a great deal of planetary activity this week as four planets ingress (move) into new signs. Any time any planet changes a sign is it worthy of note simply by virtue of the fact that the influence will be manifested differently. In some cases this is very powerful especially if we look to outer planets. In total we see Mercury move into Taurus on Sunday; Mars moves into Aquarius on Wednesday; Venus moves into Cancer on Saturday; and finally and most importantly Uranus moves into Taurus on the new Moon on Tuesday. Before we discuss Uranus let’s quickly review the other planets first. Mercury is a fast moving inner planet and speeds into Taurus where conversations are likely to involve finances and resources. Mars leaves Capricorn where it is exhalted and heads into Aquarius where its fiery nature acts out in community initiatives before it retrogrades back into Capricorn later this summer and early autumn. Finally Venus steps into Cancer where it is likely to invoke strong domestic ties and offer its maternal beauty.

Uranus has been in Aries for the last 8 years and has let its presence be known to any and all. We have seen the burgeoning explosion of the internet and social media all of which are revolutionary and innovative outcomes; classic Uranian events. When Uranus passes into Taurus we can expect to see events unfold with regard to the banking systems, large financial structures, and earthbound scenarios such as earthquakes and infrastructure failures. Of course not all events are the same but when glance back at history to when Uranus was in this placement before, we were standing on the verge of the Great Depression, World War II, and the fall of Europe. Herbert Hoover was an isolationist president and had a strong anti-immigration stance. The world was in a very similar state as we find ourselves now. It is no small coincidence that when we glance out at the global political and cultural stage we can see the underpinnings of many of the same themes. History doesn’t repeat, necessarily, but it does rhyme. Will the same events occur? Perhaps not, but to be forewarned is to be forearmed.

ARIES (March 21- April 19)
Expect to see a lot of talk and action surrounding your finances and your occupation this week. Responsibility may be the driving factor as you stand to face the results of your dedication to survival. Conversations may be highly charged and restraint might be in order. Reach out to associates to help gather momentum.
TAURUS (April 20 -May 20)
You may be overly concerned about a work subject this week. Driven to exert yourself, you may find that the conversations become especially dynamic and extremely fluid. The quickly-changing landscape may force you to respond impulsively which if not careful could backfire on you. You might be wise to curb your enthusiasm until you have more details.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
Your ruling planet, Mercury, pairs up with sporactic Uranus and you may find that your conversations are fraught with complications as you try find a solution to a large organizational quandary. The rapid fire delivery of such exchanges may find you in a tight spot. Thus should be a good time to amp up your skills.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
A decision may be pending that involves how you work with others. In conversations with coworkers you may discover that your relationships are under a bit of strain. A subject may surface that requires a responsible response and one which could be tough to make. Strive to find an amiable, creative solution and always aim high.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
A sudden and rather excitable conversation at work this week may point to an added responsibility on your part. This may put you in a tight spot regarding a friend or significant relationship such as a partner. As long as you opt to take the high road, you may find that the exchange offers a step forward.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You may find that your creativity is being challenged this week. While that may sound ominous, consider what a little pressure could do towards forwarding your agenda. Topics such as travel and training may deliver surprising results with an unexpected method of delivery. Despite what appears to be an onerous position there is much that can be accomplished.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Expect to be involved in a rather sporadic conversation with an elderly relative regarding a living arrangement. The obvious solution may also be the one with the most collateral attached. The ball may be in your court and as long as you take a responsible tact, you may be able to tamp down an exchange that might erupt.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21)
A rather excitable conversation might occur between you and your significant partner. The exchange may be quite flammable so to speak and arrive quite out of the blue, so be prepared. The discussion might involve the responsible way to solve a problem with written documentation and involve a sibling. Keep cool and carry on.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
An unexpected event may unfold while on the job that you had not foreseen. While that in itself may not strike you as odd, consider what the implications might involve. Is the paperwork accurate and organized properly? Are the financial details in line with expectations? Your best approach might be a conservative, responsible one.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Expect to witness some unusual and lively creative exchanges that tempt you to respond in the most judicious and responsible manner. Although the spark might be there the details may fall on you to determine the right approach. This can be a very fulfilling endeavor if you act with restraint. Quick-fire conversations.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Your home and family may be the source of an unexpected exchange that brings light to a decision you must make. You may be singularly driven to find the most democratic and responsible approach. You may also be very vulnerable to unhinged responses, so bear that in mind before you express yourself in an antagonistic manner.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
An agreement that may have evolved between you and a business associate or client might come under unusual scrutiny this week. The details may be alarming on one level but also indicative of flaws in your relationship that need to be addressed. Try and find the silver lining if a cloud appears.
