Dog-o-scopes for the week of May 10th- 16th
If you’re like us the first thing you do when you wake up is consult the stars to see what kind of day you’re about to have, We get it! You take care of you and let Maev consult the stars to equip you with your dog’s weekly horoscope. Here’s your dose of cosmic revelation for this crazy, crazy week...
Aries- March 21 – April 19
The Ram - because of Aries’ brave, tenacious ability to climb to the top of the mountain, no matter what.
As three major planets change direction this week you will feel the ground shift underneath your paws. Go carefully and don't be in any rush – not even to judge what's happening. Often things appear to be going backward before they go forwards with this cosmology, so let it be.
Taurus- April 20 – May 20
The Bull - because of their resilience and stubbornness! And, like a bull, they can be both frighteningly fierce or serenely gentle.
Venus in reverse from Wednesday will bring you a new kind of relationship blueprint. Getting used to it will take time, but your values around love, friendship and beauty are receiving a make-over. Prepare to let go of what no longer fits and to re-align yourself with your own truth around what you love.
Gemini- May 21 – June 20
The Twins - because of their duality, versatility, and ability to talk twice as fast and say twice as much as everyone else.
The last time Venus went retrograde in Gemini was June 2012. This time period may hold some resonance for you in the coming weeks, particularly as the node has just returned to your sign and you're in something of a karmic era where you get to see actions have consequences. So do relationships, which are the main area of analysis for you now.
Cancer- June 21 – July 22
The Crab - because they are secretive and guarded. A hard shell protects the soft flesh beneath (their extreme emotional sensitivity).
If it wasn't for your highly developed emotional intelligence you may have lost the plot by now. Even if you think you've lost it, there's a storyline that's emerging and being written every day. As Venus, Jupiter and Saturn are changing direction this week it's not the moment to take on too much. Just read the signs, the signal, the park leaves…
Leo- July 23 – August 22
The Lion - because of their regal and noble personality, they love to lead and naturally protect those they perceive as being vulnerable.
It's all about where and how you position yourself at this point. You need to know when to hold on, and when to let go. Adjusting to enforced changes in the daily pattern of your life is one thing. However, what you really need to be aware of is the quality of your relationships. This is a chance to look at how you choose or have chosen certain people, or do they choose you?
Virgo- August 23 – September 22
The Virgin - because of their pure intentions, and their modest, conscientious nature. They’re often pictured holding a sheaf of wheat which symbolizes the fertilization of ideas/skills to benefit the world.
Whatever it is that you're trying to do, you can't do it with the same mindset or value system that you had in the past. As three planets change direction this week, the signal you're getting is to cast your critical eye over what is left unresolved in relationships at this point. Unless this is cleared, you can't move forward.
Libra- September 23 – October 22
The Scales - because Librans are ALL about balance. Keeping everything on an even keel and behaving with fairness are their driving motivations.
The delicate balance between yourself and others is likely to be unsettled as Venus turns retrograde midweek. The next month or so could bring connection with people from your past, and/or your unfinished business. Really this is a chance to look at new choices you could make and to see where you have put other people's values before your own, which needs to change.
Scorpio- October 23 – November 21
The Scorpion - because Scorpios are kinda’ dangerous, a secretive creature which can poison its enemies if riled… beware!
In the aftermath or afterglow of the Scorpio Supermoon you're surfacing again after a deep dive into your soul, a moment of truth. Yet this week's unsettled pattern as three planets change direction suggests it's best to play things by ear. Venus in retrograde carries an air of nostalgia, a reconnection to the past and you need to explore this before moving forward.
Sagittarius- November 22 – December 21
The Archer - because they aim high and true, love the outdoors, and enjoy the thrill of the case.
When Jupiter turns retrograde on Friday you're entering a period of looking at your relationship to the Law of Attraction. Do you actually believe you can create your own luck? What is your relationship to abundance? As both Venus and Saturn are also turning tail, there's a hint of karma in this mix. Basically, you need to work out how to move onto your highest value and with whom.
Capricorn- December 22 –
January 19The Goat - because they are a determined animal who rises up the path by taking advantage of every foothold. Always climbing.
You sense you've gone as far as you can go with one particular scenario. There's a still point now where you have to wait to receive your next set of celestial instructions. In the meantime, relationships, karma, even your trust and faith are all up for evaluation. This isn't a punishment… the only way you're going to change the old pattern is by looking at what's holding you back.
Aquarius - January 20 – February 18
The Water-Bearer - symbolically, the water represents truth, which Aquarians deliver freely and fairly to the world. A truth-sayer!
A tie that binds you is slowly relaxing. Incrementally in micro-shifts. This is what happens when Saturn turns retrograde in your sign. You're being let go, or you're the one who lets go. Same thing. You will breathe again without feeling as if the life is being sucked out of you and you're ready to embrace a future free of the past.
Pisces- February 19 – March 20
Two fishes tied to one another, swimming in opposite directions- because all Pisceans swim amidst shifting emotional currents, and are plagued by both conflicting desires and extremes of temperament.
As a Pisces your sixth sense picks up what's circulating in the atmosphere way before anyone else. Right now, with Venus, Jupiter and Saturn turning retrograde in a week you absolutely know that nothing is what it seems. The retrogrades take us back to the past, bring up all the elephants in the room and connect you to the real reason why things are or are not happening.
