Cancer forecast for Friday May 07, 2021
The modern novel may only be a few hundred years old, but long before we were able to write stories down, they were passed on from generation to generation. An oral tradition guaranteed that important tales were kept alive. Stories that involved triumph over adversity were especially popular, not just because they struck a happy chord but also because they reflected a recognisable pattern that could be learned from. Even when things are challenging, they can improve - as you're about to see this weekend.
To understand the world you must first understand yourself. There's so much more to your story than your Sun-sign. A full horoscope reading based on your birth details will give you the whole picture... and may just change your life. Download yours now!

We teach our children to think along certain lines. We're all trained to see some things as 'good', others as 'bad'. We're rewarded when we conform with the norm, and rebuked when we question it. One of the things that gets drummed home to us, before we can even walk or talk, is that life must be about progress; that it's not enough for things to stay as they are. There must always be new developments taking place. Sometimes, though, it's fine for things to stay the same. The Venus/Pluto link brings proof of that today.

The expression 'a watched pot never boils' is demonstrably untrue. Even the great scientist, Heisenberg (who first proposed that the presence of an observer has a tangible effect on a situation) would agree. The saying endures because although the pot boils at the same speed, it seems to take longer because our attention is focused on it. Today, in order to accelerate a sequence of events, you need to occupy yourself with other things. At the very least, it will reduce your potential to unintentionally slow things down.

The first rule of astrology, so students are told, is not to provide readings for people you know. Although they might seem to be perfect guinea pigs, the risk, because you know them well, is that your insights are, well, a little too insightful! It's also why we struggle to consider our own options objectively; we're so invested in the result and passionate about the process, that we inevitably sway the outcome. Acknowledge your own biases today. As Mercury enters its celestial home, you can come to a more neutral perspective.

'Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?' This, of course, is a line from Disney's Snow White. Don't worry! I'm not using it to draw parallels between you and the Evil Queen... but that probably wouldn't have occurred to you, would it? Far from thinking of vanity, arrogance and self-obsession, you read 'fairest' as 'the most just', don't you? I thought so. As the Sun forms a square with Saturn, you can see your own face in the mystical mirror of justice. Your ability to work out 'right', from 'wrong' is being heightened.

Your Weekly Love Focus Horoscope: All relationships need honesty and truth in order to thrive and survive. But life's not always clear-cut. Sometimes, it's wiser and kinder not to give an uncensored opinion. I'm not suggesting that you should exercise deception; but discretion is key this week. If someone's feeling vulnerable, you can help them best by being friendly and supportive. They only need to know that you'll be there for them when they call. The Venus/Pluto link suggests there'll be long-term emotional (even romantic) benefits if you act with sensitivity.

Your May Monthly Horoscope: You're looking everywhere for insight about what lies ahead. That's why you're reading this prediction! You're constantly searching for a more encouraging outlook relating to the challenging situation you're dealing with. Yet, could your apprehension be adding to your sense of stress? Much though you'd like to be able to have confidence in an idea that would turn things around, you doubt your ability to find an ideal solution. This month's Supermoon Eclipse brings your confidence back. You're on the right track.

Although little things count for a lot they're not the 'be-all and end-all'. People who say that the devil's in the detail, may be right; there is, after all, a tiny spark of the divine in all things (no matter their size). Yet, just as some would say that a clap of thunder is more impressive and exciting than the sound of a butterfly's beating wings, others would say that even when there really is a devil in the detail, it's only an imp and not the Devil himself! In the legacy of today's Venus/Mars link, you're free to focus on the big picture this weekend.
