Your Astro-Forecast begins on the next page. If the time period for an interpretation is, for example, given as "July 1, 2000 (June 15, 2000 to July 15, 2000)", then it starts in mid-June, reaches greatest intensity around July 1, and ends in mid-July. The first date listed is the time when the influence has reached maximum strength; we can call this date the "peak date". The influence starts on the beginning date, gradually increases in strength until the peak date is reached, and then it gradually fades out until the ending date is reached. An influence may last for as little as a few days to as long as half a year or so.

You may also notice that the same interpretation shows up periodically during the year; this is not unusual. In some cases the beginning and ending dates of the 2 influences are the same; the only difference between the 2 interpretations is the peak date. This means that this particular influence has two peak dates instead of one. It is even possible for there to be three or more peak dates for the same astrological influence. To eliminate redundant interpretations, you may be informed that the astrological influence also occurred earlier and that you should refer back to the previous occurrence of this interpretation.

You may be wondering what the abbreviations after the dates are. For example, you may see "Sat Conj Plu", "Ura Trine Nep", etc. These abbreviations are given for the benefit of astrologers and they show the astrological factor that is in effect.

We hope you enjoy your Astro-Forecast. For the benefit of astrologers, some technical details are given below.

Mar 15, 2005         (Mar 14, 2005 to Apr 16, 2005) Sun 9th H.

     This is a time to lift yourself out of your usual mundane concerns in order to get a larger perspective on your life. You seek new vistas and broader horizons through traveling, studying, or reading about foreign cultures or by seeking out people with greater experience, insight, and knowledge than your own. A teacher or mentor may be particularly important to you now.

Mar 23, 2005         (Feb 17, 2005 to Apr 23, 2005) sat trine chi

     Letting go of painful and wounding experiences stemming from past difficulties, either romantic or business-related, is highlighted now. Failures, regrets, and mistakes in love, work, or career can be forgiven, forgotten, and healed. Barriers and blocks from your past which have interfered with your forming solid, stable relationships, as well as work fulfillment, can be removed. Setting new goals and objectives and making social, work-related, or personal interests more rewarding, successful, and meaningful is indicated now.

Mar 28, 2005         (Mar 10, 2005 to Apr 18, 2005) Ura Qucnx Asc

     The manner in which you present yourself and relate to others at this time may upset the status quo. You are remarkably more independent, rebellious, iconoclastic, or selfish. Impatient with endless compromising or accommodating others, you are apt to just do whatever you feel like doing! On the other hand, those in your immediate environment may be changing just as rapidly and forcing you to cope with some surprises or unexpected twists and turns. A general sense of excitement coupled with insecurity and uncertainty colors this entire time.

     You suddenly may decide to relocate. Carefully check out this impulse because your discontent may not be eased by a change in locale. Relationships are prone to unreliability and breakups at this time, especially if you feel they are unduly restrictive.

    Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Apr 1, 2005          (Mar 31, 2005 to Apr 30, 2005) Mars 7th H.

     At this time you are less willing to compromise or to overlook differences for the sake of harmony in your relationships and less willing to sacrifice your own needs and desires. Any tensions which have been simmering in your marriage or other close associations are likely to boil over now. If you are of an argumentative nature, quarrels and confrontations will be more frequent.

     Positively, you are more inclined to initiate contact with someone that you wish to make a connection with, and you may begin a relationship at this time that will be very worthwhile, one in which you are the pursuer or active partner.

Apr 8, 2005          (Mar 20, 2005 to May 3, 2005) Ura Oppos Mars

    Courageous and undaunted, you step boldly forth, assert yourself, and charge ahead. If you are normally shy and receding, you will burst out of your shell now. If you are a strong and aggressive person, then you will try to take full command of every aspect of your life and force weaker personalities to submit to you and support you.

    Impatient and dynamic, you work feverishly to bring projects that have been ongoing for some time to a rapid completion. You take on Herculean tasks and expect to accomplish them almost overnight. You feel tired of waiting for the things you want, and you charge forth to claim them. Find a task to do and do it! This is one of the worst times to take a relaxing vacation because you won't be able to relax; you have too much that you want to do right now. If you do vacation, activities like sky diving or white water rafting suit your taste now.

    This can be a volatile and explosive time. If you have a bad temper, then you will need to do everything possible to stay in control of yourself at this time. Pent up anger and hostility surfaces, and relatively minor things can cause you to become upset and angry. You are particularly prone to arguments, disagreements, and power struggles with others. You are inclined to not realize how pushy you are, and others may rebel against you. Make bold steps forward now and work hard, but try not to be inconsiderate of others in the process. Energetic physical activity is almost a must and will make you feel better and accomplish more.

    Also, you may attract domineering people to yourself, and you may need to assert yourself. This problem is particularly likely if you try to repress and deny the powerful energies that you are dealing with now. Be forthright and direct (that should be easy) but also try to be tactful too (which is not so easy).

    Your daredevil attitude may cause you to try dangerous activities or take risks that you normally would not consider. Do be reasonable, however, as your impatience and boldness makes you more accident-prone than usual.

    Business decisions and career decisions now tend to be too risky and also warped by your impatient need to accomplish everything in an unrealistically short amount of time.

Apr 12, 2005         (Apr 4, 2005 to Apr 20, 2005) Jup Qucnx Sat

    Some area of your life which has been difficult, frustrating, or limiting will open up at this time. Opportunities will be presented to you to help you but you must be willing to give up your familiar, though restrictive, situation or attitude. Be patient with yourself if you cannot do it all at once, but do follow the light at the end of the tunnel which comes to you.

    Debts, both financial and karmic, can be negotiated or paid off at this time in ways that benefit all concerned.

Apr 13, 2005         (Apr 12, 2005 to May 12, 2005) Ven 10th H.

     Your career, social standing, or reputation is favored at this time, especially by making personal contact with superiors or by socializing and making friendly contacts at work. You may make a good friend or meet someone beautiful and charming through your work. Now is also a good time to enhance your public standing and to create good will with the public.

There may be a lack of support or indifference to your own needs which you sense on either an internal or external level. You are not interested in wasting your energy on work or relationships that conflict with your personal ambitions or your well-being. But it is difficult to determine at this time if it is your own insecurity or other people who cause you be unclear as to your personal goals. Hard work is indicated if you are to apply your efforts with concentration and commitment. You might have to justify your need to work alone to those persons who rely upon your involvement and attention.

    Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Apr 14, 2005         (Apr 10, 2005 to Apr 19, 2005) Pal Qucnx MC

     This period allows you to improve upon or make revisions in your career or business endeavors.  Situations arise which demand that you examine your present work methods, and if necessary, release old concepts and ideas that are no longer serving your purpose.  This will be a time of transition in your chosen profession or creative pursuits.  For example, you might be in-between jobs or in search of alternative outlets to enhance your skills and talents.  Or if you are in college or receiving academic training, you may modify or change your studies in mid-stream.

You might feel urges to have more freedom and mobility in your role as friend, lover, parent, or caretaker, as well as less dependency on other people to provide you with nurturing. A more liberal attitude toward your domestic and child-rearing responsibilities could either help foster independence and autonomy for family members or could erode their sense of security and stability in the home environment. You would need to make sure you respect the desires and personal needs of people whom you have emotional ties with in order to bring about positive changes now. You may also feel like indulging in personal interests and aspirations outside a primary relationship or detach yourself from some of your daily domestic affairs at this time. Similarly, this may liberate you from emotional dependencies on others and prove significant to your personal growth and happiness. In some instances, unusual or unexpected happenings and upheavals beyond your control may necessitate that you relinquish certain emotional attachments or traditional ways of nurturing loved ones, mainly to allow for progressive change to occur. Also, an unplanned or unexpected pregnancy, family members leaving or returning to the home, as well as behavioral changes in children are possible situations which may alter the status quo in your domestic world.

    This can be a very depleting and confusing time when you do not know exactly what you want or you do not feel strong, capable, or effective. Physically, you need to be gentle with yourself and take care not to dissipate your energy reserves. Your imagination can run wild now, and you want to act out a fantasy or strange desire - something you normally would have the good sense not to attempt. However, if you are an artist, this is a very inspired, fertile time for you.

This is a time when you must use your own inner resources to meet your needs.

     Your mind is on accomplishment and action, and there is a competitive edge in your speech or manners.

Apr 27, 2005     9 AM(Apr 26, 2005 to Apr 28, 2005) Sun Sqr Juno

     Intimate relationships could come under increasing strain from clashes of will, jealousy, selfishness, or authority issues. You might feel at cross-purposes with your mate, one or both of you trying to prove your self-importance. Pay close attention to preserving the respect, dignity, and commitment in your marriage or partnership. Try to avoid acting overbearing toward your spouse or mate and instead attempt to be more tolerant of their individual needs at this time. It is best not to allow too much pride to get in the way of coming to an agreement or compromise with your partner.

Apr 28, 2005     4 AM(Apr 26, 2005 to Apr 29, 2005) Mars Sqr Jup

    You are highly ambitious, full of optimism and enthusiasm for new enterprises and plans. In fact, you may be foolishly overconfident and take on more challenges than you can really meet.

This can, in fact, be a very productive time for you if you can keep your expectations within reasonable bounds. Beware of overexerting yourself.

Apr 28, 2005     7 AM(Apr 27, 2005 to Apr 29, 2005) Merc Qucnx Moon

     Your sense of perspective and proportion is a bit skewed at the moment. Small problems loom large and details and other minor matters consume a lot of attention and focus. You are apt to be mentally restless, scattered, unable to concentrate on the immediate task at hand, absorbed in something related to the past. A somewhat disconcerting, but only too familiar, interaction with a parent, child, or other family  member is likely. Be aware that you may be too stuck in your own point of view or self protectiveness to really hear what they are trying to convey.

Apr 28, 2005     9 AM(Apr 27, 2005 to Apr 29, 2005) Merc Qucnx Ura

     You tend to be tense, "wired", on edge, a bit nervous or jumpy, and you will need to take a little time to breathe deeply and settle yourself. The pace of the day may make this difficult, however. You are apt to be too quick to respond or respond inappropriately to questions, tests, quizzes, etc. If you consciously slow down, you will do a lot better.

Apr 28, 2005     3 PM(Apr 27, 2005 to Apr 29, 2005) Ven Sqr Pal

     Your feelings of love may be somewhat reserved, modest, and unobtrusive at this time. Differences may develop over personal plans or financial affairs in a close association or romantic relationship. You might have to work extra hard when playing the role of peacekeeper or negotiator in solving problems with a lover, mate, or friend. It may help to relieve existing tension by discussing things on a less emotional level. At this time, you may feel that you do not have a clear understanding of where you stand with a partner or lover on important issues, such as financial, commitment, or security needs in the relationship. This can also be a difficult period for furthering creative plans and ventures. Close associates are not likely to be cooperative or you sense that your talents and abilities are going unnoticed.

Apr 29, 2005     2 PM(Apr 28, 2005 to Apr 30, 2005) Sun Sxtil Ceres

     You really put your heart and efforts into helping others now. A generous spirit is brought forth in you, and you want to give love, care, and nurturing to your close relationships. This is also a good time to encourage independence and self-esteem in your children. Sharing quantity time with family members and loved ones, such as involving yourself in their leisure activities, hobbies, and chores will bring much personal satisfaction at this time.

    You are in a dreamy, romantic mood. Yearnings for love, feelings of compassion, or even religious devotion accompany this time period.

      Romantic relationships and/or marriage may undergo challenges now. The need to express your sexual and passionate nature is highly stimulated, but you must guard against being overly direct and unresponsive to your partner's moods and desires. This assertive and impulsive style of lovemaking may not be especially pleasing to your mate, and you will have to make modifications in your approach toward your loved one. Also, you or your partner may be harboring jealousy or resentments which have not yet been expressed, and these issues must be dealt with before serious confrontations develop.

     If you are presently unattached, you may not be very selective in choosing a love interest, subsequently regretting a wild rendezvous or affair with an inappropriate partner. It may be best to direct your active energies into more suitable drives.

     This period can bring cordial and amicable relations with the people in your daily environment. You may be in agreement with others on basic issues and enjoy friendly discussions and lively conversations. Take advantage of an opportunity to network with people on a similar interest, hobby, or creative or business endeavor.

    Your ability to concentrate and focus on your work is very good now. This is a time to attend to details, take care of practical business, and to make your life more stable and secure. It would be beneficial to consult advisors on investments and long-range plans and to put your affairs in order. Eliminating waste and inefficiency is important to you now.

May 3, 2005          (Apr 29, 2005 to May 8, 2005) Ceres Conj Nep

     You do your best to support and care for family members at this time. Feelings of compassion and warmth toward those you love and protect are the basic principles on which your nurturing qualities operate during this time period.

Self-sacrifice and the desire to provide care and protection to family members is rewarding to you. You experience a deep longing for emotional and spiritual connections when you selflessly give to others.

    This is an excellent time to eliminate whatever is unnecessary and outworn in your life from clutter and disorder in your environment to an unhealthy relationship or even a long-held attitude or belief which keeps you from going after what you really want in life.

    You are also more perceptive than usual. You see other people's true colors more clearly and you may discover a secret or the hidden aspect of some situation.

    Something lost, hidden, or forgotten may come to light.

May 4, 2005      7 PM(May 3, 2005 to May 6, 2005) Mars Sxtil Vesta

     This is a good time to work on personal as well as business matters. You may feel like doing something that stimulates your ego drives or get passionately involved in a special interest, project, or activity at this time. It is likely you will have enough energy and motivation to carry out your desires and ambitions. However, the urge to work independently or without much involvement with other people may be very strong now. Although this may be a productive period in which you can accomplish a great deal, it is still important to maintain close ties and relationships with others.

May 5, 2005      3 AM(May 4, 2005 to May 6, 2005) Merc Qucnx Nep

     Moments of confusion, disorientation, and mental fogginess are likely. You may misunderstand or misconstrue something that is stated in ambiguous terms, so be absolutely certain that everything is spelled out and crystal clear. You are also apt to forget appointments, overlook significant details, make errors in computation, etc. Any sort of intoxicants or chemicals should be strictly avoided now. They will make you very dopey, or possibly even poison you.

May 6, 2005          (May 4, 2005 to May 7, 2005) Juno Qucnx Moon

     It may be necessary to analyze your innermost feelings and emotional responses toward your marital or love partner. For instance, if jealousy and possessiveness have plagued your relationship, then you will need to detach yourself or let go of unhealthy past reactions that are not effective in dealing with your problems. You should avoid any attempts to manipulate your partner or try to influence them to change their feelings to suit your own needs.

      Whether you are committed to someone or single, women may play emotional games with you at this time. They can change moods swiftly and are especially indecisive in their involvement with you.

May 6, 2005      5 AM(May 5, 2005 to May 7, 2005) Sun Sqr Pal

     You might feel self-conscious or lack trust in expressing your creative and talented abilities. As a result, indecision or uncertainty can interfere with or hinder your progress on goals and objectives at this time. A weakly planned project or work activity can cause frustration or not reflect your true intentions, as mental confusion may cloud your good judgment. You might have difficulty in situations which require you to use tact, diplomacy, and patience. Try to respect your intuitive impressions, as they can help give warning of circumstances, people, or things you should avoid at this time.

May 6, 2005          (May 4, 2005 to May 8, 2005) Juno Qucnx Ura

      You may feel an urge to restructure or change the way you relate to your marriage partner or significant love interest. If your relationship is lacking in excitement and stimulation, you may complain that you have outgrown the existing circumstances and experience restlessness and boredom. It is not that you want to abandon the partnership, but you desire only to breathe new life into it or break the old pattern of repetition or monotony. Sometimes events or situations occur during this period which force you to find your own self-worth and security independently of the relationship or marriage. The choices that you make at this time will not be easy ones; some will even be imposed upon you. However, they will be stepping stones for future autonomy and equality in a current or new relationship.

May 7, 2005     11 AM(May 6, 2005 to May 8, 2005) Merc Conj Sun

    You make yourself perfectly clear at this time, coming across in a very direct, articulate manner. Your honesty and willingness to communicate openly impresses others. This is a good time to give a speech, present your ideas publicly, or simply express your viewpoint to the people who matter the most in your life. If you are in a profession dealing with words, ideas, or communications, this is a very positive and fruitful time for you.

May 7, 2005      1 PM(May 6, 2005 to May 8, 2005) Merc Conj Ven

    Thoughts of love and an appreciation of the beauty in your life comes to the fore. This is a favorable time to communicate your feelings to the ones you care about: write a love poem or send a love letter! Also your aesthetic sense is strong now; you may want to make changes in your environment to make it more harmonious and pleasurable for you.

May 8, 2005          (May 6, 2005 to May 10, 2005) Vesta Oppos Nep

        Confusion regarding your work duties and responsibilities can interfere with your job performance. There is a tendency to be disillusioned or disappointed with work conditions, activities, and individuals in your professional environment.  For example, you may be subjected to criticism from others if your work methods are inefficient or impractical.  Or it may require a struggle to bring creative ideas and mental focus to your job.  It is also likely you will vacillate between impassioned effort and passive indifference toward your daily chores.  You might feel a need to retreat or withdraw from working closely with other people for fear of being victimized or becoming overly dependent upon them.  Your imagination can run wild, so be sure you have listened attentively to others before you make any assumptions. You must try to sort your way out of this confusing period by remaining levelheaded and concentrating more fully on realistic goals and directions in work assignments.

May 8, 2005     10 AM(May 7, 2005 to May 9, 2005) Ven Conj Jup

    Happiness and a desire to share your good fortune and joy with others is the theme now. You are feeling generous and expansive and are inclined to give lavish gifts or buy something lovely for yourself that is costly or extravagant. A diet or budget is likely to go out the window right now. As long as you don't overextend yourself, this is a good time to indulge your feelings of kindness towards others and also to be kind and indulgent to yourself.

May 9, 2005      9 PM(May 8, 2005 to May 10, 2005) Sun Oppos Nep

    Your defenses are weaker than usual now and you are inclined to passively withdraw or give in to other people rather than act decisively and strongly in your own behalf. Confusion, vagueness, or misrepresentation can occur in your relationships, so beware of making commitments at this time. You're likely to see things much more clearly and realistically later on.

May 10, 2005     3 AM(May 9, 2005 to May 11, 2005) Merc Conj MC

    At this time you are objective and can make some clear decisions about where you are headed or what the next step to achieve your important personal goals should be. Your judgment is sound at this time. You may have an important professional conference or a conversation about your career. This is an excellent time to seek out your superiors or those in a position to help you advance.

May 10, 2005         (May 9, 2005 to May 29, 2005) Merc 10th H.

     Career planning strategies or thinking of concrete ways to make your dreams into realities as well as sharing your thoughts on these matters with a few significant others should be very fruitful now. It is a good time to communicate with someone in a position to help you achieve your aspirations.

May 10, 2005    11 PM(May 9, 2005 to May 11, 2005) Sun Sxtil Chi

     This is a good time to distinguish yourself from others and make your abilities widely known to the people who count. Let others know of any new ideas or undertakings you have been contemplating. The favorable feedback you get from the people in your surroundings will give you more assurance and confidence. Take this time to reinforce your view of yourself and foster positive feelings in order to overcome any past insecurities or failures. Reflecting on and acknowledging your good qualities will help strengthen your self-esteem.

May 11, 2005         (Apr 27, 2005 to May 22, 2005) Sat Sqr Sun

     Frustrations, trials, and difficult, critical decisions are key issues at this time. Others are not receptive to your ideas and they do not express interest in your work. This is a time to increase efficiency and hold back the reins. If you have a business, for example, you probably want to cut down on advertising and slow down on expansion, or even cut down on production, employees, and expenses. Look for areas of waste and cut down in these areas. You may think that you should be doing something exciting and grandiose to stir up more interest in your services, but such measures are likely to only increase the problem.

     Difficulties with employers or other authority figures may arise. For example, a new supervisor or colleague at your place of work may be rigid and authoritarian. Your first reaction may be a feeling of frustration and hopelessness. However, a slight change in attitude and approach can often benefit tremendously. By trying to keep a sense of humor and a hopeful attitude, you may find that you get along reasonably well with this person despite his/her personality and rigid policies. Also, some hard-nosed, objective reasoning about the situation may reveal some alternatives that you have overlooked. Perhaps you can transfer to a different department or assume different responsibilities that allow you to interact with this difficult person less often, and perhaps even enable you to focus more on the work you really want to do. Many of the obstacles you face now, although perhaps not obvious to you, test you to see what you really want to do with your life, and you need to focus your energies on the kind of work that is most meaningful to you and cut out anything superfluous.

     At this time the frustrations can become so great that you may doubt whether the line of work you are in and the things you have been working for are really worth the trouble, and you may feel inadequate to meet the tasks at hand. You must continue to believe in yourself and maintain your commitments to the things that are really important to you. The old and useless things must be discarded. Unfortunately, only you can decide what is really valuable to you. Others will offer advice based on their own priorities and values, which more often than not, are different from yours.

May 11, 2005         (May 9, 2005 to May 13, 2005) Juno Qucnx Plu

      This is a good time to heal and cleanse your marriage or committed love relationship.  If you have been trying to come to terms with past hurts and fears in the partnership, then this would be a favorable period to work on releasing negative emotions which are not allowing both of you to develop a greater bond and involvement.  Otherwise, if you choose not to make any alterations, deep buried emotions may surface, causing tension and discord in the marriage or partnership. Sometimes, it is your partner who may be instigating changes, and you find yourself having to deal with the consequences of their actions. It would be best to be honest and open in all emotional and physical interactions with your mate, clearing the way for better understanding and trust in the relationship.

May 12, 2005         (May 5, 2005 to May 19, 2005) pal qucnx sun

     Asserting your personal aims can be challenging at this time. Mental stress at this time may interfere with your ability to think clearly and act with self-confidence in achieving your goals and directions. You will have to work hard to function at your usual level of perception and cleverness. You do not feel assertive enough to express your natural creativity and intellect, as you feel insecure in your abilities. This is a period when you need to adjust to new conditions in your relationships or job situation. For example, your boss or other superior may ask you to provide insightful wisdom and advice regarding a work-related issue but you are unable to find a solution. The situation may be that your creative mind is not working to capacity, and you need to become more knowledgeable and informed with respect to the decisions that you make.

May 12, 2005         (May 3, 2005 to May 21, 2005) pal qucnx ven

     Problems arise in your close personal relationships which demand a need to compromise and make adjustments in your thinking.  You might not be accurately perceiving a situation with a loved one which can cause dismay and tension. There will be a requirement on your part to share more of your creative activities and interests with your mate. Other issues can come to light now regarding the financial aspects of your partnerships. For example, you or your partner may not be willing or able to contribute toward your economic situation, and you must balance or adapt your needs and requirements in view of the circumstances. Or one of you may be neglecting the romantic side of your relationship while the other person is craving more unity and sexual fulfillment. Try to balance the exchange of give and take in your partnerships on a more fair and equal level.

May 12, 2005         (May 11, 2005 to June 10, 2005) Ven 11th H.

     Meeting with people who share common ideals or purposes, either on a professional or personal level, will be very successful now. You have a friendly, cooperative attitude that will help such gatherings flow smoothly.

     You need and want to socialize now. Parties or other gala events are favored. Getting together with a group of friends to play music or sing would be very satisfying.

May 12, 2005     9 PM(May 11, 2005 to May 14, 2005) Mars Qucnx Asc

     Those in your environment are irascible and quarrelsome; they may attempt to embroil you in their disputes. What begins as a high energy competition or purposeful activity may turn nasty. It will be difficult for you to stay out of it; your inclination now is to do something. It would be much better for you to go solo right now rather than attempt a cooperative endeavor.

May 12, 2005         (Apr 29, 2005 to May 23, 2005) Sat Sqr Ven

     A sobering experience in a love relationship occurs around this time. You may be rudely shown ways in which your attitude and behavior towards a loved one is based on misguided principles. You may discover that for a long time you have been expecting the other person to play a role that fits a concept of yours, but is stifling for the other person. Now you must learn to let the other person express his/her nature more fully, and you must adjust to it. The opposite situation may also occur; you realize that you have been playing a role to meet the expectations of others and you want to be more genuine and have a more genuine relationship with others. You are also likely to discover that you have some "fair weather friends" that let you down when you need them most. You also discover some "real friends" who take an interest in your deeper concerns and interests.

     This is also a time when parties and social festivities seem to disappear. You may have a good heart-to-heart talk with someone, but very few jovial, light, carefree and happy times. You need to think about your relationships and attitudes towards love and romance seriously and decide how to handle your current relationship. If you are not involved in a relationship now, then you are thinking seriously about what you want in a relationship, or whether you want one at all. Do your homework well because your ideas and intentions now will strongly affect your decisions later!

     Your financial situation may be difficult now also. Some reorganizing is needed and you need to cut out extravagances and waste. This is relatively easy for you to do now because luxurious, expensive, beautiful things have less power over you now than usual. You are searching for something of deep and lasting satisfaction, rather than "skin-deep" beauty. Your usual pleasures do not interest you now, and you can become emotionally depressed. Allow yourself time to get away from the usual demands of your life and engage in quiet, peaceful activities. You will find this refreshing and rejuvenating, and you will come away much clearer about what you really want in love relationships and friendships, and what material possessions are most satisfying and important to you.

May 13, 2005     3 PM(May 12, 2005 to May 15, 2005) Mars Oppos Mars

    A furious battle of wills is quite possible, for you are fired up, impatient, aggressive, and inclined to put your own interests and desires ahead of anything else. You may also have to stand up for your rights against some fierce competitor. Also, you can't sit still right now and hasty, abrupt, impulsive action may result in accidents.

May 14, 2005    12 AM(May 13, 2005 to May 15, 2005) Merc Conj Vesta

     This can be a busy time with a lot of activity, communication, and short trips, especially for running errands or business purposes. In work related interests, you may achieve a desired goal through your dedicated efforts. Promoting your ideas in an eager fashion may put you on top or give you an advantage over others in your workplace. By channeling your thoughts and energies properly, you can make steady strides where job projects and career goals are concerned.

May 14, 2005     1 AM(May 12, 2005 to May 15, 2005) Mars Conj Ceres

     You can be fiercely protective of your loved ones now!  You want to be actively involved in family matters and to support and guide others through thick and thin. Recreational, sports, or creative activities with children can be a highlight during this period. Sometimes this astrological influence marks a period when a loved one or child becomes very demanding of your attention, even to the point of becoming hot-headed if you don't drop everything to take care of their needs. Luckily, you have a great reserve of energy to handle your caretaking as well as other responsibilities.

May 14, 2005         (May 12, 2005 to May 16, 2005) Juno Conj Merc

     You will enjoy sharing thoughts, ideas and conversations with your romantic partner. If you have been experiencing problems in your relationship, this would be a favorable time to express your concerns or try to reason with your mate, as you will have the ability to see both sides of the situation more clearly. This will be a busy and stimulating period for involvement in daily activities together, with much communicating and thinking about your relationship.

    If you are not involved in a significant love relationship, this can indicate a time when you may form a romantic alliance with an individual whom you meet through a relative or neighbor or maybe during your daily trip to work.

May 19, 2005         (May 5, 2005 to July 6, 2005) Jup Qucnx Ceres

    This is a good time to analyze what you consider meaningful and important in your personal and domestic relationships. You may not be able to resist getting involved in the superficial concerns of loved ones. This can lead you to overburden yourself with everyone else's affairs except your own. You may have to disengage yourself before falling into the trap of having your life consumed by others now. Find time to pamper or indulge yourself in something which gives you personal satisfaction, rather than feeling pressured to meet the expectations and needs of other people at this time.

June 15, 2005        (May 6, 2005 to July 25, 2005) ura oppos moon

    Any relationships that you are involved in that have strong dominance-passivity themes or are stifling and restrictive to either one of you are likely to explode now. Even relatively minor constraints and expectations held of each other can become a source of tension now. For example, if you are married and you expect your spouse to cook and clean for you, or you expect your spouse to act and dress in a certain way that meets your needs but is uncomfortable for your spouse, then these expectations may have to be drastically altered or totally abandoned now. There may be habits that you or your spouse have that have been tolerated for a long time even though they are inimical to the other person. Examples of such habits might be smoking, drinking, acting childish and silly, or being very formal and dignified at all times. These minor annoyances now become great stumbling blocks and you may find yourselves arguing over seemingly minor issues. These problems arise because this is a time when OLD HABITS AND EXPECTATIONS MUST BE CHANGED.

    This is the time to break old habits and routines that no longer serve their purpose. You must question the values and attitudes that you inherited from your parents and family and put them in a new perspective. Biases and prejudices that you have held will fly back in your face now, and now you may feel that you are being victimized by others who hold prejudices against you. This is a time to forgive and forget the mistakes of the past and make steps forward to become a more accepting, tolerant, responsive, and loving human being.

June 15, 2005        (May 9, 2005 to July 21, 2005) ura oppos ura

    This astrological influence occurs some time between the ages of 38 and 46, and occurs only once in your lifetime. You have reached a kind of halfway point in your career and pursuits, and you seek a high level of freedom and creativity in your life. This is an excellent time to begin incorporating creative elements into your life that you previously have not had the time for. You may also decide to quit your job and go into business for yourself, or you may seek employment that provides greater creativity, freedom, or more vacation time. You may decide to spend more time doing the things you enjoy, rather than always being busy trying to compete and struggle in life.

    If you feel that opportunities are not available to you to live a more creative, exciting life and you still are struggling with pressures, responsibilities and demands to just pay your bills, you are likely to go through a mild crisis now. Don't be too hard on yourself and keep in mind that sometimes subtle changes in your life style and attitudes can bring about significant improvements in your life. You may be tempted to toss everything out the window and start over. For some people this is a good idea, but for others it may result in losses that are later regretted. You must decide on the path that will best lead you to a life that is more personally rewarding, creative, and free of obstacles.
