Weekly Astrology Horoscope Forecast + Zodiac Sign Predictions For The First Week Of May, 2018

Weekly Astrology Horoscope Forecast + Zodiac Sign Predictions For April 30th - May 4th, 2018
Zodiac, Self

Here's what's happening for all zodiac signs the first week of May.

Have no fear, your weekly horoscope is here for all zodiac signs in astrology.

Loyalty is the theme for this week. Taurus is all about being loyal. To himself, to others and to his causes. 

You can learn who your friends are, where you stand at work,  home, and even with yourself this week, thanks to the Moon traveling from Scorpio, then into Sagittarius and ending this week in the sign of Capricorn. 

We have three weeks left before you enter the Third House in astrology. Now, that you are full swing into Taurus Season, and entering the month of May, you need to ask yourself what is it that you need to permit yourself to explore.

With the energy of a Full Moon in Scorpio allowing us to release, you received the spiritual break that you needed. Now, that you are grounded and more focused, determined and more driven than you might have been at first during 2018. It's time to get your hustle on.

The Sun is in the 2nd House of Taurus until May 20th:

What first began as a throat clear as we moved into this Earth sign now becomes a full song. It's a perfect time to stay committed and focused on what you've started while re-evaluating along the way instead of stopping and checking things out.

Remember, Taurus is most like himself when he is in a state of resistance. You may find yourself resisting changes too. When this happens, do a self-evaluation and ask yourself if you're resisting change because of fear? If the answer is yes, then give yourself permission to go forward with anticipation of good things to come. 

The Moon travels from Scorpio through to Capricorn:

The Moon runs from loss to friendship and takes with it lessons involving loyalty and commitment. With both Saturn Rx and Mars Rx in Capricorn, our intentions and motivations rise to meet our plans but there's an opportunity to choose wisdom when faced with decisions that sway us away from our goals.

Mercury is in the First House of Aries:

Straightforward Mercury action is a time when concise statements are an understatement. You may notice that some people want to cut to the chase faster than usual. There is clarity in messages, but also a chance at mix-communication.

Aries energy intensifies Mercury which is associated with the zodiac sign Gemini. While under this placement, the messages that we hear become questionable.

It's easy to second guess one's self, even when there seems to be nothing wrong at the moment. There's an inclination towards double checking behind oneself, which isn't a bad idea. Speaking ideas, even aloud can be helpful during this time. 

Venus is in the 3rd House of communications with Gemini:

Venus is ruled by Taurus and is a bit out of its element while in the zodiac sign, Gemini. What is grounded and assured becomes airy and slightly less predictable. Our passion projects may seem to be taking a little longer than usual.

There may be moments when the grass seems to be greener on the other side, but we realize quickly that it's not. Resourcefulness comes into play but not for long as Gemini energy needs to move in order to feel alive. 

Jupiter is retrograde in Scorpio until July 10th:


Jupiter is our planet of growth and expanse. It's the planet of goodwill and prosperity too. So, while Jupiter goes retrograde in Taurus we learn to connect the dots between losses and gains. Here's where you put good intentions in with your karmic measuring. 

Remember the law of karma, what comes around goes around. In doubt about something being good or bad or whether or not you should or shouldn't do something? During Jupiter Rx, it's wise to wait and see.

Sometimes things work themselves out with you having to do a thing. This is your fate and the universe's way of guiding and protecting you. Just don't rush into things that seem uncertain without evaluating your situation. Take the time to get to know your choices.

Mars Rx and Saturn Rx are in Capricorn:

This dynamic duo are at work in the most unusual way. When Mars goes retrograde, it can feel as though things are a bit harder to come by but not because of anything you're doing wrong.

Mars is our planet of intent, it's the motor to your vehicle and when in retrograde, like Jupiter it encourages evaluation. What are your motives? What's driving you? Ask those questions and you'll learn more about your self than you thought you could.

When teamed up with Saturn, we have an interesting combination. It's as though things that were not meant for you, don't have as much of a looming threat.

It's also as if things that are for you can finally come but they take a bit more time. It's when patience becomes rewarded and hard work finally pays off.

Neptune is in Pisces until 2025.

Neptune is home in Pisces. This is a season for dreams and dream building. Go ahead, be unrealistic. Dream big.
