This is a time to count your blessings. This means taking stock of the benefits, abundance and resources in your life, be they physical, emotional, mental, spiritual or social. Even if your body is suffering from ill health, there's bound to something about your body that you can enjoy. For example, even if you're getting over a cold, you can enjoy the pleasure of curling up in a warm blanket on the couch. Or if you feel some part of your body is unattractive, find another part that is acceptable to you or perhaps even something you feel good about. This is not about instantly transforming difficulty into freedom from stress – it's about finding little ways that can help you gradually grow beyond wherever you're stuck. One day, one step, even one molecule at a time.

This time also means taking inventory of what is missing in your life. You might be recovering from a loss, be it the loss of a friend or a home or a job. Or you might have reduced your financial resources through a large purchase recently. This is a time to make plans about how you can (again, gradually) grow back what is missing. In other words, it's time to plant new seeds to renew and recycle a previous harvest.

Something missing doesn't have to be a bad loss, though. You might also have lost a bad habit or a destructive attitude. Circumstances might require you to do without something you want or need, but if you look closely you can probably see that the delay will allow something new or better to come into your life. Perhaps you regret not having done more in the past so that you would have more of something now? For example, putting money away for savings, or building up your physical fitness through exercise. Remember that before growth can occur, the conditions must be ready to support it. If growth or change isn't occurring as quickly as you'd hoped, look at what needs to happen in the present so that something better can emerge in the future. Patience is a blessing that can get you through this time of waiting for the process to evolve and unfold. One of the best ways to "wait" for something better is to take stock of what you already have that's working for you.

Lunar Forecast for the

FULL MOON in SCORPIO

This Forecast in effect
May 6 to 20, 2012

The Lunar Forecasts give Daily Horoscopes a greater context.

Get ready for an intense time of deep feelings and passions! If you're comfortable in the realm of feelings, it is likely to be a very creative and rich time. Use the time to explore feelings and desires that are hiding in the corners of your mind that you don't often see up close. Think of it as a spring cleaning of your psyche, giving you the chance to acknowledge and embrace that which is a valuable part of you, and to let go of that which no longer serves you well.

If you are uncomfortable about experiencing deep feelings and emotions, this could be a bit of a challenging time. Over the next couple of weeks you may need to confront and deal with situations that could stir up feelings from the past. You might feel unusually angry or frustrated by ambiguous attitudes or behaviour in yourself or others. Be careful about letting your own reactions get in the way of the opportunity to expand your awareness of what's happening. You are in the presence of a deep part of yourself that harbours hidden gifts and wisdom, if you can get past your resistance to seeing what's really there. Once you get past your projections and fears, it's usually not as scary as you think.

You might feel some pressure that you must get this right the first time. Don't let yourself be cornered by other people's expectations or standards. It's not that they're not important to some extent, but what's even more important is that you figure out what is important to you. What do you expect of yourself? Do you think that's reasonable, or are you trying to gain approval from someone else by pushing yourself harder? Find out what your own standards are and respond from your own inner knowing. Own your own authority. Just be careful not to posture in reaction to old authoritarian ghosts from your past. Leave them in the past.
