Cancer forecast for Tuesday May 11, 2021
In the words of Madonna, 'we are living in the material world, and I am a material girl'. Of course, she was right, this is a material world and we're material beings. Yet some people suggest that the act of recognising our physicality clearly demonstrates spiritual awareness. Just because your journey through life is filled with ups and downs, and you're currently feeling physically tired, doesn't mean that you're stuck in your reality. The New Moon heightens your natural sensitivity and brings a helpful new option.
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!

Memory is a mysterious thing. No matter how certain we are about what we remember, there's no getting away from the fact that it's selective. So is vision. We see what we want to see, and ignore what doesn't suit us. Sometimes, life invites us to look more closely at something which makes us think about an issue we'd rather forget. Even though it's an uncomfortable experience, it's not a bad one. When the coming New Moon shines on an unresolved historic problem, you'll know exactly what needs to be done.

Your Weekly Love Focus Horoscope: 'It's the little things you don't do; and it's the big things I don't say'. Songwriter Conor Hirons' wry lyric about relationships refers to the things that get in the way of domestic bliss. Whether it's a wrangle about the washing-up or who puts the rubbish out, domestic blisters occur in every relationship. The secret, is not to let everyday issues undermine what we build with our nearest and dearest. As Jupiter moves into a new home, the time is right for an honest discussion about fairness and balance in a key relationship.

Your Weekly Horoscope: It's easy to get so caught up in the pressures of day-to-day life that we lose our sense of direction and purpose. It can start to feel as if we're lurching from one crisis to another, or as if the best we can hope for is an ability to keep our heads above water. If you're tempted to nod in agreement with all that I've said, stop! For one thing, you need to keep your head still while you're trying to float and, for another, the observations describe your past, not your future. You'll understand exactly what I mean this week.

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.

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.
