Horoscope: Good news: Venus and Mars are all right

Thursday, May 26: Saturn in Aquarius, Uranus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn are all in play today, but the most powerful aspect is thanks to the moon conjunct Venus in Aries. The temptation to take a chance, when offered, will be irresistible and that should prove to be sweet! It was May 26, 1967 that the Beatles’ revolutionary “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” was released. I was in Sam the Record Man’s flagship store on Yonge Street in Toronto and saw a gleeful Seiji Ozawa, music director of the Toronto Symphony at the time, purchase his copy.

Friday, May 27: Guard against impulsive words and actions today. Pause before you hurt yourself or someone close to you. Maurice “The Rocket” Richard, the great right winger for the Montreal Canadiens, died on May 27, 2000, at age 78.

Saturday, May 28: Venus enters Taurus, her domicile sign. When Venus is in Taurus, we find it easier to connect and honour our feelings – without guilt or self-doubt. This is a great transit for everyone, so take advantage of the upcoming weeks and make sure to “do” Venus things: self-care, eat nutritious food, indulge in sensual experiences. Another great thing about Venus’s ingress into Taurus is that we now have both Venus and Mars in the signs of their maximum strength, which is great news for relationships. May 28, 1936, was the day Alan Turing submitted his “On Computable Numbers,“ the theory for all modern computers – and in doing so he changed the course of history.

Sunday, May 29: Mars is conjunct Jupiter. Mars conjunct Jupiter is a bold, action-driven transit that will make things happen. Whatever is put into motion now will have a long-lasting impact. Of course, this is not an energy to mess around with or exploit for selfish, unhealthy reasons. It was May 29, 1953 that Mount Everest was successfully climbed by Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay, his Sherpa guide.

Monday, May 30: Today, we have a new moon in Gemini. This is our first lunation out of the eclipse season. Things are slowly getting back to normal. The new moon applies a wide sextile to the Mars-Jupiter conjunction in Aries, while the new moon ruler, Mercury – now stationary and ready to turn direct – is trine Pluto and square Saturn. There is a sense of “I’m there, but not quite there.” Mercury is drawing our attention to a big decision we need to make. Things will soon clear up, when on June 3, Mercury goes direct. It was May 30, 1431, that Joan of Arc was burned at the stake for “wearing men’s clothes,” considered proof that she was a witch.

Tuesday, May 31: It's a lively day with the moon still in Gemini gets pushback from Neptune. Be on guard for foggy misinformation. Be honest. Terry Sawchuk, perhaps the greatest goalie in the NHL, died on May 31, 1970, in New York City. After suffering from depression for many years, drinking eventually contributed to his death at age 40.

Wednesday, June 1: While the cosmos is in a giving mood at least once today, a sensitive Cancerian moon gets dinged by serious Saturn, knocking the mood off its feet. Be cautious. Today Alanis Morissette celebrates birthday #48. She’s on tour this summer with a stop in Toronto on July 17.
