Cornerstones of your life, revolving around the people and place you belong to – and the role you were born to fulfil – make this one of the most important weeks of the year. As soon as May Day is over, your ruler the Sun begins to turn a spotlight on your mission, position and ambition. This is a judgement call and you will be making the judgement. Mercury will bring important news your way about your career, university life or volunteer role very close to Wednesday and Saturday, enabling you to make decisions which will have a lasting impact. The eclipse on Friday 10th should, by rights, be a logical new beginning – although something will be covered up or unclear. You may prefer to wait until something has reached you by internet, media or phone (it should be there by Sunday) before you go making epic decisions about your projects, plans, role or goals. The other major story in your horoscope, as you know, is a rather tight question about your relative, flat, house, flatmate or home turf. Timing is everything in astrology, so let the moment pass near Friday, then gather your thoughts after Sunday, when you realise that you can’t make choices about the people or place you belong to, without also factoring in important new questions about your calling in life – and also your status. These issues matter to a Queen, or a King. Take it slowly.
