Here’s what’s happening in astrology this week
The astrology shaping your weekly horoscopes for May 22-28.
Molehills become mountains with Tuesday’s inflammatory Mars-Jupiter square
Is it really that big of a deal? Hard to tell this Tuesday, May 23. Feelings and egos are bound to be inflated under a tense, annual standoff between fierce Mars in egocentric Leo and supersizer Jupiter in stubborn Taurus. As these two titans lock into a challenging 90º square, everything will seem disproportionately urgent, and it will be hard to temper reactions or find a moderate stance.
Narcissistic behavior could be on full display, and in general people are acting obnoxious and extra. Do your best not to add to the cacophony. Summon your patience, try not to interrupt and slow down before bulldozing down every barrier. Feeling restless? This square could shake up a stagnant part of your life and embolden you to take a much-needed risk. Under this disruptive aspect, you may not have any other choice but to adapt to sudden momentum.
The adults return to the room with Saturday’s quarter moon in Virgo—phew!
If there were ever a day to sweat the small stuff, Saturday’s it. The waxing quarter moon in flaw-finding Virgo raises a magnifying glass to expose the tiniest mistakes. Though you may feel pressured to hand off a project, don’t rush through it! You could overlook an important detail that winds up costing you time and money. Ask for help or clarification when you need it instead of trying to patch the dam. Give your work a healthy once-over before sending it off. (You may win points for its perfection!)
While you’re at it, assess your wellness with an equally keen eye. Summer’s right around the corner and the clean, green influence of Virgo is here to help energize you for it!
Sunday’s Sun-Saturn square might bring a sobering (but essential) reality check
Were your plans too ambitious? Recalibrate on Sunday. A cosmic standoff between inspector Saturn in Pisces and the confident Gemini Sun serves up a semiannual reality check. Don’t STOP dreaming up new ideas. But before you dip too far into any “imagineering,” measure this against some of your material-world needs: time, money and resources. Doing so might actually be heartening! With a tangible plan in place, something you thought was just a pipe dream could turn out to be far more doable than you realized. Take time to crunch the numbers and research the facts.
