IF WE RE­LAX, WE CAN EN­JOY A HEART­FELT and aes­thet­i­cally in­trigu­ing week. Strive to be un­der­stood. On this aus­pi­cious and in­ter­est­ing Fri­day the 13th, un­der a melo­dra­matic and friendly Leo moon, our sense of ro­mance is strong and fed by the bur­geon­ing li­lacs and the beauty of new leaves. Grem­lins may trig­ger un­ex­pected de­lays or lost items as Mer­cury ret­ro­grades, but it also con­juncts Venus in earthy Taurus and warms our hearts. Old things sur­face, and we get a chance to re­lease a weight on our soul.

It’s a good week­end to re­con­nect with old friends and fam­ily and see how much peo­ple have changed since the last time we checked in. We may take this ret­ro­spec­tion to a deeper level and have a sub­stan­tial con­ver­sa­tion about our worst fears: con­cerns about fi­nan­cial in­sta­bil­ity, job, self-worth, war, or a ter­ri­to­rial pos­ses­sion of per­son, place, or thing, which is the shadow side of Taurus. And once we start on pol­i­tics, we can rant and rail with stub­born aban­don. The moon heads into more thought­ful, in­tro­spec­tive, and chore-ori­ented Virgo over the week­end.

Early next week brings a gen­er­ally friendly at­mos­phere, but we may get our feel­ings hurt by an un­fair­ness that turns out to be a mis­un­der­stand­ing. Build up good­will with one an­other be­fore the moon en­ters Scorpio on Thurs­day. Ro­man­tic ex­pec­ta­tions and a posses­sive streak build as the week goes on. It’s easy to blame an out­sider, but we re­ally need to nur­ture the strength of our con­nec­tions in­stead.

FRI­DAY, MAY 13: Af­ter an early morn­ing burst of ex­per­i­men­tal en­ergy, a lazy or self-in­dul­gent streak can re­ally in­ter­fere with our ef­fi­ciency. Watch un­usual stub­born­ness mid­day. Words can take on dra­matic beauty this af­ter­noon as Mer­cury con­juncts Venus un­der a Leo moon. Early evening is so­cia­ble; let’s just go to sleep if we get edgy later as the moon en­ters Virgo.

SATUR­DAY, MAY 14: En­joy a thought­ful and pro­duc­tive, if slightly touchy day af­ter a cranky early morn­ing. Work on un­fin­ished projects and things that need heal­ing from the past. It helps re­la­tion­ships to set a small com­mon goal. No­tice that ev­ery­one’s a bit ir­ri­ta­ble and will take help­ful sug­ges­tions as crit­i­cism.

SUN­DAY, MAY 15: It’s a lovely, earthy day to weed in the gar­den and fix what­ever needs to be fixed — homes, souls, or re­la­tion­ships.

MON­DAY, MAY 16: We may grow more so­cia­ble, but can still feel lonely, re­ally miss­ing peo­ple who are far away. Nur­ture con­nec­tions al­ready present and look for some lovely new be­gin­nings at work.

TUES­DAY, MAY 17: The day is gen­er­ally pleas­ant and pro­duc­tive, though a low-level ir­ri­ta­tion around de­lays can rise up like seep­ing water. We can or­ga­nize our re­sources more com­fort­ably this af­ter­noon as the moon sex­tiles Saturn. Tonight we may feel tempted to in­flict emo­tional pain on oth­ers as the moon squares Pluto, but we are not the prob­lem.

WED­NES­DAY, MAY 18: We’re feel­ing a lit­tle quirky and want to be stim­u­lated by beauty. Our usual opin­ions and pref­er­ences may be chal­lenged and even changed. Be open to new friend­ships. A rest­less­ness may strain on­go­ing re­la­tion­ships; boldly go forth and ex­plore to­gether.

THURS­DAY, MAY 19: Look out for stormy con­di­tions and watch the chip on the shoul­der as the moon waxes into Scorpio. De­sires and frus­tra­tions are in­ten­si­fied. We get se­ri­ously fo­cused about our pas­sions and ter­ri­to­rial about what we value. Some will be look­ing for a fight. Do not be­lieve nasty com­ments; they’re ran­dom light­ning bolts. If storm clouds swirl, re­mem­ber the calm in the cen­ter of the soul.
