Resources for conscious living

STARSCOPE :   May - June 2OOO
Written exclusively for Community ConneXion by Carol Roland, MA
Carol Roland

For all signs: Throughout May there are major planetary events that are synchronistic with changes in human consciousness. Many will experience physical events related to seeds of change conceived last August. This is the start of a new 20 year cycle, a time for completion and new beginnings. If open to change, the energy will help to make dreams a reality. It can also prod you to deal with things you have tried to avoid. Changes will affect at least two areas of each life, depending on individual charts. I would recommend readers consult an astrologer for specific personal information. A list of astrologers in the Portland area may be found in the Directory under Cosmic ConneXion.

            The following is based on the sun sign and may be only one area of life that will experience tension.  Also read sign on ascendant if known.

Individual Starscope: (See birth date period in parenthesis)

  • Aries (March 21 - April 20)  Finances and values may require a reality check.. Use your visionary abilities to discover new avenues of income.
  • Taurus (April 21 - May 20) You may have help, or be forced, to re-invent yourself. What physical image do you want to project to the world?
  • Gemini (May 21 - June 21) Stubborn self-sabotage patterns may become apparent and painful enough to finally get healed. Time to move spiritual theories into practical application.
  • Cancer (June 22 - July 22) Fears related to groups and self-employment can be healed at this time. Developing community values and skills can become an asset to achieve life path goals.
  • Leo (July 23 - August 22) Have career goals been based on what you truly love doing?  You will now have opportunities to bring that into alignment, even if resisting the change.
  • Virgo (August 23 - September 22) Time to use your ability for individual discrimination and find your teacher within. Expand yourself, establish yourself, rather than being servant to the philosophies of others.
  • Libra (September 23 - October 23) The importance of shared values will become joyfully or painfully apparent. In your Libra desire for partnership have you sacrificed what you truly enjoy and what you need for self-empowerment? Align with those of like mind.
  • Scorpio (October 24 - November 22) Time to stop projecting old issues onto current or potential new relationships. Opportunities now to establish a new productive relationship pattern that will bring personal fulfillment.
  • Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21) Take a close look at your home and work environment. In chasing rainbows have you allowed yourself to be too scattered to see what has been piling up on physical, emotional and mental levels? It is especially important for you to follow the Feng Shui principle of “clear the clutter” that overwhelms.
  • Capricorn (December 22 - January 20) Time for a new cycle of creativity, not just to provide security but also to bring personal pleasure. Allow yourself to risk, to play, to be romantic.
  • Aquarius (January 21 - February 18) Your home and family issues continue to be a focus. Begin this new cycle with a different awareness of the strengths and weaknesses gained from your roots. Through compassion see the gifts given to you from perceived adversity; also look at patterns of inflexibility accepted as truths.
  • Pisces (February 19 - March 20) Spirituality wears many faces, many ways to say the same thing. Time to look at your style of communication. Are you stuck in a mind set of a specific path or terminology? Learn to share your viewpoint, but also listen while honoring the diversity of facets. Remember the childhood story of the blind men and the elephant.
