Kristin Fontana's weekly starcast
Week of Wednesday, May 20
Kristin Fontana immersed herself in Western medicine in her 20's, and by her Saturn return was hit hard with the all consuming feeling "There must be more to life than this." After arduous Soul-searching and inner pleas to answer the question,"Why am I here?", she landed in a lecture given by Jeffrey Wolf Green on Easter Sunday 1999. She dove fast, hard and deep into Evolutionary Astrology and never looked back. Kristin has dedicated her life to this great work of the Soul using this unique and powerful paradigm. She specializes in helping Souls connect with their creative life purpose and in uncovering their true nature. She is also deeply moved to help unearth the true power of the feminine in all of us. She is available for readings and can be reached by email. Her website is www.kristinfontana.com

You may be getting way ahead of yourself this week as you come to find that the “Best laid plans of mice and men oft go astray”. Your ruler Mars is in Gemini, and the ruler for Gemini is Mercury, which is now retrograde, which has been known to foul things up on occasion, even with the best of intentions in place. Your view may be changing along these lines too. As usual, you may have wanted to kick something into high gear, only to feel the universal hand keeping you at a more conscious pace, a stride where you are forced to not skip any steps. You are rewarded for your awareness and focus on the needs of others this weekend, as Mars harmonizes beautifully with the North Node, the symbol for your destiny, in Libra. Mars squares Neptune and Uranus squares Venus come Monday, May 25, so be sure to speak clearly, so your words are not misinterpreted and taken out of context.
With your heart in the right place, you cannot go wrong. Trust in a key loving breakthrough now in progress!
You won't rest until you know your bottom lines are covered and with Mercury now retrograde in your house of finances and those things you value most, you will be re-thinking your way forward and making necessary changes to support a better functioning future. This includes doing things for you, to support your own inner cravings and personal quest. Mars is also in this sector, you may need to spend in order to earn, as it often takes money to make money, so be prepared to fork it out if need be. Your ruler Venus is in Cancer, in your house of ideas, suggesting you may be in the process of getting various quotes and second opinions. Be sure not to sign anything final until after June 11 if possible, as you may change your mind a few times before you are ready and where you need to be. Mars does aspect the North Node, the symbol for your destiny, in Libra this weekend, giving you the confidence in yourself to harness your will and make something meaningful happen with it. Things get fuzzy, possibly even dicey early next week, but do what you can to just ride the tide, keeping your eye on the end goal.
The recent New Moon in your sign will have a solid way of carrying you up and all the way through!
Mercury may be retrograde in your sign, but with Mars also in Gemini, there will be zero question surrounding what you want. What your Soul desires will be seeping out of every cell, so this backward slide is more about figuring out how to get what you want, and then making plans to make certain it happens. This weekend,, Mars in your sign will connect strongly to the North Node, the symbol for your destiny, in fellow air sign Libra, helping you flesh out unnecessary excess, in order to get to the heart of what really counts. You will be deeply inspired and in store for attracting more of what matters, for the more you put yourself out there, the grander the return. This coming Monday, May 25, there is some potentially colliding energy, as everyone feels to be overly sensitive, perhaps even you have an emotional itch that needs to be scratched. The lesson here is to find a way to tend to that need on your own, so there is zero dependency on another for feeling good.
Once you master this, you can have it all!
It may prove to be a wild ride this holiday weekend, as just about anything goes on the cosmic front. Mars, the planet of spontaneity is in Gemini and is making an uplifting angle to the North Node, the symbol for your destiny, in Libra, this weekend. Be open to jump on the bandwagon for a sudden adventure, prepare also to 'off road' it some as Mercury is retrograde and the energy on Monday, May 25, is all over the place. This could lead to unexpected delays during your travels, leaving you with no other choice than to play hooky from work on Tuesday. The key is to simply leave plenty of time and space for whatever may surface and to roll with wherever it leads. I am certain you will have a few good stories to share. With Venus still in your sign, you are sure to be up for a good time and will be attracting plenty of what you enjoy along the way, but somewhere in the middle of the mix, you may attract something you don't want, as Venus also opposes Pluto. Know when to say no, and know how to nip it in the bud. You have a few cosmic wing men in your midst, so move forward with blazing confidence, and the onlooker's won't know what hit 'em.
Prepare to feel forever changed!
You may have been going down one road, determined to reach a desired destination, only to find yourself continuously reaching a dead end. Now with Mercury retrograde in Gemini, and Mars also in Gemini, you are soon going to find the road that finally gets you clearly to the other side. Shifting in reverse will in truth save time in the long run, and as you find yourself going back to a certain drawing board, you are going to uncover the innovative key that makes the true difference. The current trends also support reconnecting with old friends and clearing up any unfinished business with others, so you can move forward in greater harmony within yourself and in balance with those who mean the very most to you, as Mars aligns with precision to the North Node, the symbol for your destiny, in Libra. You may feel a temporary set back on Monday, May 25, as Mars squares Neptune and Uranus squares Venus, but it is necessary now in order to 'eek' out any remaining residue within you.
If you are up for a challenge, you can outsmart yourself this week, raising that personal bar of awareness. Take full advantage of the full on brainstorm!
Your future outlook is changing, as your ruler Mercury is now retrograde in the area of career and how you structure and plan your life. Mars is also up in this same sector, generating new life experiences for you which will be getting you in touch with desires that may now change the trajectory of your life course. You will also feel inclined to circle back with others in places where you did not get your voice heard, or where you had so much going on in your head that you could not decipher how to articulate what you were thinking or feeling. This is a good time to sell yourself as well as Mars will form an angle of conviction to the North Node, the symbol for your destiny, in Libra, this weekend. If you want to make a good first impression, step in and shine. If you want to negotiate anything well for yourself, you've got the edge. The tides turn some on Monday, May 25, as you find yourself a bit lost at sea with respect to others that hold the key to your heart. Find a way to get high on yourself, and you will sail through without a bruise or a scratch.

You may be going through your own obstacle course with key others, as Mercury retrogrades through your opposite sign. Mars, the planet of desire and will, is also heating things up and there will be much that is up for discussion.

In fact, you will find you are both chasing the change that you seek yet Mercury will keep you in check with each step. You may feel you have gotten way ahead of yourselves, perhaps biting off more than you can chew, as you enter next week when Mars squares Neptune and Uranus squares Venus.
