Love Notes: Week May 5-12, 2023

Brief love reading for each of the signs. Be sure to look at your Sun, Moon, and Rising signs for an expanded perspective. Read your May Astro-Tarotscope here.

Underlying Theme for All the Signs: A surprise opportunity or an unexpected dilemma is now on the horizon. This could mean a helping hand, a sudden windfall, promotion or advantage. Perhaps a boost allows you to move forward in a venture, establish security, plan the future in a relationship, or a chance meeting leads to love or sensual enjoyment. Alternatively, it might be an unwelcome financial burden, a failed promise, or the consequences of poor habits coming home to roost in matters that at first seemed simple, but are now complex or costly. Whatever the scenario, you’ll soon discover how prepared you are to deal with changing situations. Whether the need is to address your own faulty judgment or the mistakes of others, finances and issues of trust are intertwined with circumstance. These situations also highlight obsessions and addictions that take the form of drama, criticism, worry, self negation, food, fitness, alcohol, success, spending money, a lack mentality or any other negative habit that’s actually rooted in a desire to quell unwanted feelings and the subconscious search for spirit. This is a week to rebuild your inner and outer strength.
