Your Weekly Horoscope Is Swirling With Electricity, So Focus On Your Passions

by Valerie Mesa

May is lovely. The essence of spring is alive and well and there's colorful inspiration swirling through the air. Do yourself a favor and soak it all in. Taurus season is about indulging in the beauty all around you, and your May 6, 2019 weekly horoscope is looking pretty sweet, if you ask me. Granted, there are three planets retrograde right now, but instead, focus on the positive side of these retrograde cycles. Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto retrogrades are nothing like Mercury retrograde... not even close. So instead of focusing on whatever's been perturbing you as of late, do your best to surrender to the unknown.

A sensuous new moon will more than likely set the tone for you this week, as it took place this past weekend. Although, with Mercury the messenger joining the sun and electric Uranus in Taurus on Monday, May 6, you could be greeted with an unexpected surge of mental stimulation throughout the week. This high-powered transit will push you to break free from social norms and liberate yourself from mental stagnation, as it's brilliant, experimental, and unorthodox. On the dark side, this cosmic voltage can also spark restlessness, irritability, and nervous tension, so stay focused.

Mercury in Taurus is here to help you become more practical with our thoughts and general exchanges. This earthy transit is about living in the here and now in order to communicate with purpose and integrity. Warrior-like Mars in Gemini will make an opposition to Jupiter retrograde in Sagittarius for the majority of the week. This will boost your self-confidence and provide you with the necessary drive to put everything you've learned into motion. Jupiter retrograde in Sagittarius is asking you to reflect on your spiritual growth thus far, and Mars in Gemini wants you to communicate boldly, and fearlessly. Indulge in both.

Jupiter retrograde will also link up with irresistible Venus, and in turn, ask you to reevaluate the "bigger picture" of your current relationships, values, self-worth, and desires. Venus in Aries approaches love with vigor and enthusiasm, and Jupiter retrograde in Sagittarius will provide you with the higher knowledge and spiritual expansion necessary, but it doesn't end there. A harsh square to Saturn, Pluto, and the South Node in Capricorn mid-week can cause temper flaring and inspire power struggles. This energy is shedding light on psychological patterns in regard to your security, self-esteem, and values. So instead of dwelling, turn it into a catharsis.

Now, take a close look at what the stars have in store for you this week, according to your zodiac sign:

Aries: You're On A Whole New Level, Literally

This week is all about integrating your mental expansion and spiritual awakening with your communication style and general exchanges. The things that made you feel secure and valued at one point are in the midst of permanent restructure. Your higher self knows best, Aries.
