Star Catcher: Astrology for the week of May 13, 2011

TIP FOR THE WEEK: Don’t let your anger get the best of you. Take a deep breath, choose your words carefully and remember to smile.

GEMINI (AIR) MAY 21 – JUNE 21 You continue to be rather judgmental of your friends and colleagues and soon you will have to either ease up or be prepared to lose a friend or two along the way. No one can withstand your criticism for long without reacting. Time spent with an earth sign is just what you need to calm down and see things from a different perspective. HINT: The beginning portion of this week is the perfect time for finishing up a project.
CANCER (WATER) JUNE 22 – JULY 22 Your good name and your professional standing are always important to you and this week you will have to make some important decisions. Before you commit yourself, remember that it is not a sin to put your own needs first. Actually, at this time, that is exactly what you should be doing. Soon you will have the opportunity to meet with some family members who you haven’t seen in much too long. HINT: This is a good week for getting out of the house. Go visit the sea and get recharged.
LEO (FIRE) JULY 23 – AUGUST 22 So much happening and so much on your mind. Let go. Relax and enjoy yourself. There is only so much you can control. Leave the rest to others. This is a good week for getting organized and for working on a special project. All you need to do is find the time. Your relationship with an earth sign is rather strained as you become much more independent and not willing to put up with their nonsense. HINT: Watch how you spend your money. Frugal is better than wasteful.
VIRGO (EARTH) AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22 Choose your friends carefully and remember that not everyone who compliments you deserves to be included into your inner circle of intimates. Not all friendships last a lifetime and you are going to have to ask yourself some hard questions before you get the insight you need in order to grow and move forward. HINT: Money and finances are always on your mind, but this week you are not will not be able to do much in this area.
LIBRA (AIR) SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 23 All your personal relationships take on special meaning as you begin to make some very important decisions. Never one to act in haste, you will take your time adding more and more information before making your move. Money and finances need special care right now and if you continue on the path you started a few months ago, you will be just fine. HINT: A conversation with a Cancer will lighten your heart.
SCORPIO (WATER) OCTOBER 24 – NOVEMBER 21 Work and more work are keeping you busy as you are now inundated with paperwork and reading materials. Take your time and make precise notes. This is not the time for taking chances or trusting solely to your luck. When dealing with a fire sign, be patient. If you listen carefully you will be amazed at what you hear. HINT: Sunday and Monday are perfect days for taking care of personal business.
SAGITTARIUS (FIRE) NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21 Business is on your mind. New ventures, old projects, and work you would rather someone else did instead of you. The best thing you can do right now is pace yourself. If you are very careful you will be able to get your best work done. There are so many people relying on you that there are days when you fear you won’t be able to carry them much longer. That will be the sign you need, to walk away. HINT: Sunday and Monday are good days to set up important meetings.
CAPRICORN (EARTH) DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19 You tend to take everything very personally right now and are much more thin-skinned than usual. That always happens to you when you are about to make a major decision. You don’t have the patience any more for the sloppy work and lack of professionalism of your co-workers. When talking to a fire sign, be patient and let them speak their piece. HINT: Reach out to a sibling and start mending fences.
AQUARIUS (AIR) JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18 You need to talk and get your voice heard. You have a lot to say and this week you have the ability to not only convince others but to really shine. Double check your facts and throw caution to the wind. No one can best you in a debate right now. HINT: Although your financial situation is rather stable, you will need to keep putting money aside if you wish to travel this summer.
PISCES (WATER) FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20 Some days you have the feeling that you are cracking under the heavy load you carry around. The answer is simple—let go. Their mistakes—their responsibility. All you can do is love them unconditionally. And, funny enough, that will be more than plenty! Be patient with an elderly member of your family. This person means well but is not as sensitive to your needs as you would like. HINT: make arrangements to visit a water sign.
ARIES (FIRE) MARCH 21 – APRIL 19 Some days you are so charged, that you find it difficult sleeping at night. Ideas pop into your mind, one after the other, and before you can work out a problem a new version appears. Take a step back and wait! In the meantime sit down with your partner and/or mate for a serious discussion of your ideas and plans. HINT: If you take care of your finances, they will take care of you!
TAURUS (EARTH) APRIL 20-MAY 20 So much is going on all around you that you will find it extremely difficult this week to remain calm and to concentrate. Be true to yourself and remember that you are much more in control of your life than you have been in a very long time. And, you have choices and opportunities galore. All you need to do is decide. HINT: Take advantage of this surge of energy and trust your intuition. •
