Everything you need to know about the Earth opening up and swallowing your planets or the other way around.
Horoscopes by Corina Dross
Did y’all feel that thing that happened in the last half of April? That queasy feeling of building pressure, that unexpected outburst? The sense that something big and dark was maybe about to erupt? Oh, that was just the grand cardinal cross, sandwiched between the spring eclipses. No big deal.
We get to breathe more freely this month as the grand cross eases off, but there are more fireworks on the way. By mid-month, Venus, planet of how we get what we want (and who we want), will brush up against Uranus –harbinger of explosions and defenestrations, and patron planet of anarchists, astrologers, and queers. All this in Aries, the impulsive, enterprising sign of “while y’all were talking I just went and took what I wanted.” And as we all remember, Uranus is still locked in an epic arm-wrestling match with Pluto –the planet of entrenched power who heralds either trauma or recovery (which don’t always look that different). Venus is about to get implicated in all that. So we’re seeing themes of dramatic, unexpected transformations in how we handle love and desire– especially in those hidden cracks in our relationships, formed by resentments and fears.
In honor of this transit (and because I’m teaching a class on the astrology of relationships and sexuality), this month’s horoscopes will be taking a closer look at our intimacies, sexual and otherwise. As always, bear in mind that horoscopes are a different beast than a personalized chart reading and behave more like weather reports than psychic messages channeled just for you. If you know your rising sign, read that first, and then your sun and moon signs. Take what you need, cut the rest into tiny ribbons and rearrange them till they’re of some use.
