Dog-o-scopes for the week of May 24th- 30th

Aries- March 21 – April 19

The Ram - because of Aries’ brave, tenacious ability to climb to the top of the mountain, no matter what.

Knowing when not to jump is an art. Maybe you could even include it in your tug of war! This is all about strategy, self-sufficiency and being able to position yourself perfectly so that from late June onwards you'll be pick of the litter.

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.

Making an intervention is not your usual way of going about things. Yet you find yourself being able to make different choices and changes without any resistance. In fact, breaking free from the leash is feeling more liberating by the day.

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.

As a hugely significant amount of activity is taking place in your sign you absolutely know you've got something important to bark about. This might be linked to last year and making it known how much you've moved on since then. Re-visiting an old park will enable you to realize what valuable lessons you've learned.

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).

Since Mercury, the communication planet will arrive in Cancer on Thursday you're feeling the urge to cuddle and nuzzle. Whatever is going on now carries a resonance, you could find yourself in a similar situation, but older and wiser now. Giving your power away is not an option.

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.

If you've had to go with the flow recently – mostly because you haven't had the opportunity to exercise your Leo leadership, you're fast approaching a time when you can take matters into your own paws. Early June will be pivotal for setting you on a more fulfilling dog-run. Finding the starting point is your mission this week.

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.

Take your mind back to the park 3 months ago and your goals and personal life at that point. You're either in a position where you owe or you are owed because karma is the consequence of what happened then. This week is a prime time to have that all-important bark thru. Or at least get things straight in your mind.

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.

You've been on something of a learning curve for the last 6 months, but it's time to switch tracks. You sense that new possibilities await that will offer you scope to live differently. Besides which, what is meaningful to you now is very much altered from the priorities of the last half of the year.

Scorpio- October 23 – November 21

The Scorpion - because Scorpios are kinda’ dangerous, a secretive creature which can poison its enemies if riled… beware!

You're in a completion cycle which means you're ready to start again. Much depends on the kind of support you can muster for the things you want to do. This is the moment to have your ears perked up to position yourself for a new kind of value system, which flows into your self-esteem as well as your bone- balance.

Sagittarius-  November 22 – December 21

The Archer - because they aim high and true, love the outdoors, and enjoy the thrill of the case.

In the run-up to the Sagittarian eclipsed Full Moon on June 5th you're sensing powerful changes in the works. In fact, this eclipse is a game-changer as it starts a new cycle of eclipses in Sagittarius and Gemini that last until 2021. Your preparation is to join the dots between what happened the last month and where you are now.

Capricorn- December 22 – January 19

The Goat - because they are a determined animal who rises up the path by taking advantage of every foothold. Always climbing.

As you're in a major release cycle which includes expansion and contraction, you're getting used to the fluctuation. It's all part of a process that is transforming what you want to do with your life. This includes everything from the smallest treat to the bigger bone.

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!

You have no desire to simply go through the motions. Every water-bearer has a desire to live powered by their own symbolic generator. So doing your own thing has to be achievable when so many leashes have been cut and you realize breaking away is just a matter of time.

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.

Mars in Pisces ups the ante – so you are running yourself mad with the need to do things. Psychologically you're no longer concerned with what others may think or how you fit in, only how to express yourself. This is both surprising to others and liberating for you! Run free!
