Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers! Taurus represents Mother Earth, the table upon which we find/present what your/our dreams are worth. Make it beautiful, and then Venus will/May come between us. It’s more fun being in love than not, isn’t it? Then, it all make$ $en$e; but doe$ it/that make dollar$?


b TAURUS (4.19-5.19)  It’s your turn to burn. Here comes the wave you’ve been waiting for! Kick out the jams and get ready to score. Create something you(’ll and we’ll all) adore, and then plant it into fertile Earth to/and find out what your dreams are worth!

c GEMINI (5.20-6.19)  MAN, HAVE YOU GOT IT MADE! On Friday, the Moon enters your sign just before dinnertime and conjuncts an emphasized Venus —also in Gemini — around sunset, providing a veritable smorgasbord of food, love, art and/or music. What a blessed start to/for your blessed weekend. By mid-afternoon on Saturday there’s an unexpected new plan inviting you to join in and lend your hand at/for some kind of gathering. A little after 4:00 it will all make sense once more, as the Sun conjuncts and brightens up your ruler Mercury, the planet of mentality. Wake up around 8:30 a.m. on Sunday and face the East. As the Sun continues to lead Mars, pray to your lucky stars as the rising Moon conjuncts Jupiter, heralding a mother of a day for you! Then, wait ’til Wednesday afternoon for your next boon!

d CANCER (6.20-7.21)  $tart quietly preparing now. The Moon (your ruler) is exalted in Taurus, the sign our Sun is currently transiting. Glide/sleep through Mother’s Day, so’s you can blast away from early on Moonday ’til around dinnertime on Wedne$day. Then, meditate on the $etting Leo Moon (in your $econd House), a$ the money i$/will be coming $oon!

e LEO (7.22-8.21)  Lie back. You’re a week away. Don’t let your reputation go to your head (Sun, Mercury and Mars in your theoretical 10th House of Taurus). Adulation is nothing you can count on…through even the next morning. Right after his initial success in the James Dean movie “Rebel Without a Cause,” actor Dennis Hopper stated, “Success and failure are both imposters,” implying that neither is/as what they’re said/supposed to be. I suggest that we should remain humble, yet/and prepare for success.

f VIRGO (8.22-9.21)  Get ready to fall in love around the Sagittarius penumbral Full Moon Eclipse on May 24th/25th! Someone will/wants to go home with you(?). How does the MOJO know that eclipses bring/herald reversals? To find out, you’ll have to tune in next week, when once again we speak.

g LIBRA (9.22-10.21)  Make it well-grounded and/yet beautiful, and someone will buy it! Try it?

h SCORPIO (10.22-11.20)  Channel all your power to/through your partners in this present and/or for your future. Pick the ones (did you ever “one-der” how one can pluralize “one”?) that’ll suit ’cha; both for your partners and your future. It takes a lot of help to be independent. Can you see any/the dichotomy? —Michael P.

i SAGITTARIUS (11.21-12.20)  On Mother’s Day (on Sunday) morning, shortly after dawn, you’ll be told/shown what’s going on… There’s nothing better in this world for you than someone who tells/speaks to you true… If the truth is the best foundation for all that is to follow (and it is!), then why is it so hard to swallow? Can/do you? (Gotcha!)

j CAPRICORN (12.21-1.18)  Time for you to party (both your 11th and 5th Houses) like the pirate you are — or want to be! It’s okay to be naughty — but don’t do anything that you aught-y not-y! Create artistic pleasures from/with the treasures of your mind. Dig deep to/and see what you can find. From what I hears (that’s pirate talk, Matey), there be secret treasure between yer ears. Arrrrrrrrr…!

k AQUARIUS (1.19-2.17)  Stay at home and rest. Spring will come for you when it comes. Last year, spring came unexpectedly early. This year, it’s unexpectedly late. What happened last Moonday afternoon (the 6th), when the Moon in Aries conjuncted your esoteric ruler, the planet Uranus? If nothing unusual, then I’d suggest that you’ll be due after May 22, when the Moon conjuncts Saturn. What’s your favorite color? We’ll find out/discuss that next week, when once again we speak.

l PISCES (2.18-3.19)  When you lose your phonebook, it can be an omen that you need and can use/expect new friends. When you get yourself that new address book, file your acquaintances by their last names and the chosen/proven/loving members of your tribe by their first; separating your blessings from your curse.

a ARIES (3.20-4.18)  The rest of May has Mars in Taurus, chasing after the Sun. All you can see relates to your economy ’til May is done.
