The Center for the New Age is pleased to present your Free Weekly Horoscope for Astrology May 2 – May 8, 2021
Mercury trine Pluto (May 2 – May 6) brings favorable news and optimistic discussion around issues of control and power. This is a favorable aspect for attempting communications with those of another generation. Mercury is the communications tower that transmits information concerning those lively issues that deeply concern us. Pluto’s disruptive energy is focusing our attention on such issues as contagious diseases, senseless crime, misunderstandings between cultures, facing up to addiction and many other painful realities. This is a good time to express encouraging words and reinforce the troubled people of our world with a sense of hope.
Venus sextile Neptune (May 2 – May 10) is a good time to focus love on spiritual beliefs. This aspect can have a strong healing effect on the soul, and reaches into the feminine parts of our being with a calm fortitude. This serves as an excellent aspect to reachout spiritually to those we love as well as to our spirit guides. This is a time to persist with loving expression and devotion towards one’s beliefs.
Last Quarter Moon in Aquarius on May 3 encourages our conscience to have compassion for our kinfolk, to sort out what it means to assist and guide others. This is often a questionable situation given that most folks don’t always know what’s good for them. A kind word or a sympathetic ear has great healing power and oftentimes this promotes greater peace.
Mercury square Jupiter (May 3 – May 11) reflects a block of energy flow occurring between Mercury, represented as the salesman, informant and negotiator and Jupiter, represented as the source that allows wealth to flow: manufacturer, banker, fundraiser, etc. This is a time to be particularly cautious when looking for a job or changing jobs, asking for a raise, or signing any binding contracts concerning long-term investment and payment schedules. This aspect has a tendency to create expensive misunderstandings concerning large-scale investments so be sure to clarify all details regarding this type of issue.
Mercury enters Gemini (May 4 – July 11) increasing our attention to detail, and to cover a wide range of topics and subjects of interest. Mercury in Gemini directs and orchestrates information in an interesting and captivating fashion but the thing to keep in mind is that information is not always well researched or even a correct and accurate representation of the truth so take careful heed of what is being presented to you.
Venus trine Pluto (May 6 – May 14) often allows a breakthrough to occur for those who fear accepting the work of fate. This aspect can help us to overcome the pain of separation concerning love. It is the place where love triumphs over death. Replace what is lost with the act of love itself. In this there is great power.
Venus square Jupiter (May 8 – May 19) reminds us that something more than love’s blindness is required in order for us to fully realize our riches. Love may be blocked from attainment in some fashion, and traveling lovers may be tested on some level. There may be a focus on the need to create curbs on spending in pursuit of pleasure but don’t let money matters spoil the beauty of loving affection.
Free Weekly Horoscope for your Sign
In times of uncertainty, it can be unwise to place too much faith in the material world. You might need to think outside the box now when it comes to money, work, possessions and the material side of life. Trying to keep things as they always have been is likely to be counterproductive, and what’s needed now is a more flexible or innovative approach. It could be time, for example, to embrace a new idea for generating more money. Staying flexible and not attached to outcomes could lead to a situation that works better than you might have imagined. When all else fails, remember that Aries is the sign of bravery and that playing it safe – particularly with your finances and material world – is not advised right now.
Gifts for Aries
As the Sun and Uranus align in your sign, this week is a good time to focus on change or to adopt a more experimental approach to life. Playing it safe or staying in your comfort zone will not help you feel the sense of meaning and authenticity you’re deeply seeking. By taking a step toward what seems to be calling to you, you can make the kind of progress that feels right on track. That said, you will need to strike a balance between being too impulsive and overly cautious, as you will likely fall into one camp or the other. If impediments or setbacks make you feel like giving up, then give yourself a pep talk. Sometimes obstacles exist to test our mettle. Conversely, if you’re about to throw caution to the wind, remind yourself that some structure is good. Aim to tread the middle path.

Love Cards Report
Trying to keep up a facade can be exhausting, and with a lot of planetary energy in your zone of secrets, it might become increasingly difficult to keep a lid on things. If you are tired of keeping up pretenses, the Sun’s alignment with explosive Uranus might bring things out in the open, which could be a relief. Perhaps it is time to reveal a hidden part of yourself. If you keep resisting what is trying to emerge, circumstances or fate could give you a helping hand. This is the time to confront issues you have previously been unwilling or unable to deal with.
Gifts for Gemini
With Mars in your sign and Uranus and the Sun in your future zone, this is a time to make inspiring and dynamic changes. If you want to have a positive impact on others, push forward with your altruistic ambitions. If you simply want to get more done, socialize more, or figure out what your passion is, these are also worthy and viable aims. Whatever your current desire, a need for change, excitement or stimulation is likely at its root. It might be time to be a little daring, innovative or rebellious.
Gifts for Cancer
New Age Natal Report
With your ruling planet, the Sun, joined at the hip with revolutionary Uranus, now is the time to make a change or to do something in a different way, especially with your work, direction or future. This could range from a change in direction to changing the way you approach a work project. An experimental approach is called for, and if you need to be a little rebellious to be true to yourself, then that is what you must do. But avoid doing things the way you always have or letting others stifle your creativity, ideas or innovative plans. It is time to forge your way and let your light shine brightly without apology.
Gifts for Leo
With the Sun and Uranus in your zone of adventure, this is not the time to play it safe or do things as you’ve always done them. Indeed, you could be rewarded for adopting a more experimental approach and trying something new. It all begins with your thoughts, so expand your mind so that you can entertain greater possibilities. If your thoughts are narrow, your life will follow suit, so you can’t complain if your world seems flat or boring. Now you have a great opportunity to see the world with new eyes, which is bound to have positive repercussions. Believe in things that others might view as impossible.
Gifts for Virgo
Transformation doesn’t always have to be a long, drawn-out process, and as the Sun unites with the quick and revolutionary Uranus in your zone of the underworld, you can expect something to be revealed or stripped away that leaves you feeling lighter. This could be something minor or a sense that sweeping changes are taking place in your life. Whether this transformation feels big or small, you have nothing to gain – and possibly a prolonging of difficulty- by trying to keep things as they are. If it feels like fate is at work, it probably is. Go with the changes knowing that the universe often knows better than we do.

Child Astrology Report
How do you need to change the way you relate to someone? Do you need a fresh start or to breathe new life into a relationship? Perhaps doing things the way you’ve always done them isn’t working well, and you need a new approach. Much of the planetary activity is in your relationship zone, suggesting that your focus will be on your partnerships and what needs to change. Perhaps allowing others to be themselves is a place to start while also insisting on your right to a certain amount of freedom to do what you want.
Gifts for Scorpio
Astrological Solar Return Report
Your health and work are ripe for your focus, and perhaps a change is in order. While this is a good time to get a lot done and become more organized, you could overdo things, leaving yourself in a physically weakened state. When the Sun journeys through your health zone, it’s always a good idea to pay attention to your body’s needs and support it by adhering to healthy routines. This is a good time to change the way you’ve been doing things if your routines have not been working particularly well.

Astro Forecast Report (3 months)
We can’t always do what we want, and this is one of those weeks when the frustration could be a little too much. The trick is to see what you can do within restrictions. Capricorn is a sign that understands limits and boundaries, so this shouldn’t be too difficult. See any impediment to your desires as a challenge to rein in something that might not be in your best interests, or find ways around it. The universe isn’t necessarily thwarting you; perhaps it is encouraging you to think outside the box.
Gifts for Capricorn
Cards of Destiny Report
Home and family are the focal points as the Sun reaches the domestic area of your chart. This could indicate a need to come home to yourself, particularly if you have been focused on more external matters and forgetting about your internal needs. With Uranus present, it looks like a change is required, perhaps a change at home or a change within you that comes through an insight or revelation. Alternatively, the change could come to you from a family member or your home that requires attention. The challenge this week is to strike a balance between your responsibilities to self and others.

Cayce Past Life Report
You don’t have to become an activist to protest against things you don’t agree with. There are gentler ways to make a difference, and for now it’s all about your ideas and how you share them with others. Perhaps it begins with helping someone see a situation differently or inspiring others with an artistic idea. Whatever your current thoughts or inspirations, you need to act on them rather than bury or sideline them because of fear or doubt.
