The Lunar Forecasts give Daily Horoscopes a greater context.

The first question you have to answer is: are you pushing the train, or is the train pushing you? In other words, are you exerting effort to get something moving, or are circumstances pushing you to do something? A train is big and heavy, but once it gets rolling it runs smoothly and requires a lot less effort to keep it going. Is this good or bad? Well, it depends on what's going on in your life. If you're trying to get a new project off the ground, it will take effort to get it up to speed—like pushing a train—but the energy to make it happen is available for the taking. If you've been rushing at a fast pace for a while, then your train might be racing a bit out of control, so it's good to slow it down and pace yourself.

If you feel like you've been trying to run away to get out of the way of a speeding train, then ask yourself this: are you running from something that is necessary or inevitable but requires more commitment or courage than you feel you have? One example might be that you've let your impulses run out of control for too long—like your temper or too much drinking/drugging/partying or an addiction. In this case, slowing down a bit could help you get a clearer picture of what you need to deal with it so that you're not trying to constantly outrun it. You can't run away from it forever. Don't dismiss the benefits of slowing down and pacing yourself, even if it means having to say no to your impulses.

Throughout May, there is an ongoing flow of opportunity to start moving in new directions and bring different parts of yourself or you life together in new ways. However, there are older themes and unresolved issues that may come back from last year. If this is a bit unnerving, remind yourself that you are not the same person you were then. You have life experience, knowledge, understanding and strength now, as a result of things that happened last year, which you can draw on to meet the challenges of the next few months. Even if it felt like you were simply overwhelmed last year and did not acquire any real learning from the events, you're probably able to see it now with a fresher perspective which can help you figure out a better way to handle things. Whatever your situation, I'm available for private readings to help you get back on the right track and moving in your best direction.

Lunar Forecast for the

FULL MOON in SCORPIO

May 17 to June 1, 2011

The Lunar Forecasts give Daily Horoscopes a greater context.

Where does your passion lie? What do you feel way down in your depths that sets your soul on fire? Pick something that symbolizes that passion: an image or a sound or a feeling in your body. Now examine this more closely to get a clearer grasp on it. What fuels this passion? Is it guided by a desire for purpose and fulfilment? Is it driven by a need to feel more powerful, less vulnerable? Can it make the world a better place for others, regardless of their nationality, race, religion or culture? Does it require you to let go of something that you've been holding onto�a feeling, emotion, need, obsession, addiction or self-image? Or does it involve holding fast to something that has eluded you�commitment to a different direction in your life, a vision of life that is free from old fears or expectations, or perhaps the courage to take a step forward without pulling back again?

This is a time when you might need to confront and face some old unresolved feelings or problems. It may be necessary to brush away the cobwebs and illusions that have obscured your vision of what those troubles are really made of. The good news is that you are now seeing these issues with new eyes, through knowledge and understanding that you didn't have when those problems first arose. You have resources and options now that can help you find better ways to understand and deal with the things that overwhelmed or paralyzed you in the past.

Over the next few weeks, there is a foundation of stability forming that can support the growth and development of new actions, attitudes and feelings of well-being. Allow yourself to be guided by what can attract pleasure, peace and balance into your life. This is very different from focusing on a goal and going after it. Rather, this is a time of learning to allow what you want to come to you, through openness and receptivity. When you come across something that is similar to or consistent with what you want in your life, be open to it. Welcome that experience into your life, even if only for a moment. Celebrate and take pleasure in your experience of it. The more you acknowledge the little examples of what you want to attract to you, the more you send out the signal to the Universe to send you more of it. Just be careful not to confuse what feels good with things that what merely mask what feels bad.
