Art World Astrology

by T. Cuevas


MAY 2017

The sun in sensual and earthy Taurus signals it’s time to slow down and smell the roses. Ruled by Venus – patron of art, money and beauty – Taurus loves the good life and beauty in all its forms. Whether it’s good music, food, a massage or just a beautiful view, Taurus energy inspires us to pay attention and deeply appreciate what makes us feel good.

As all earth signs, Taurus is realistic, concerned with the practical aspects of life, the material world, with financial security and possessions. It encourages us to use our material resources wisely and effectively, and it’s a great time for smooth business negotiations and expansion.

It’s also a good time to address any self-worth issues that might be standing in the way of our financial success, or whether we’re making security more important than our authenticity.

This month, ruler of the arts, Venus, is still in Aries, adding a big dose of fire to the earth energy of Taurus. There’s a tendency to want to push the limits, to take on controversial, challenging work and to follow our instincts as much as possible. And that is the theme this month – achieving harmony between the traditional and the revolutionary, the risk-taking and the practical. The joining together of what seem to be opposing forces can clear the way for some true innovation.

ARIES march 21 - april 20

It’s all about the material world for Aries artists this month, who can welcome new income opportunities and deepen their mastery of the business aspect of their work. This is an excellent time to take stock of what you value and where you want your career to go. Let go of wanting things to look a particular way, stay open and be flexible. Your path to success might just look different from others. Inspiration and optimism are high between the 10th and 15th, when you’re an especially persuasive speaker and motivator. Collectors and gallerists - don’t get discouraged if you feel plans stop on their tracks around the 29th. Use the time to take a breather from the action and revise the projects on hand. With discipline and perseverance, you can build on what you started successfully. Keep your priorities where you can see them. Self-expression and brilliant ideas come easily on the 31st.

TAURUS april 21 - may 20

Taurus artists can welcome the spotlight this month and embrace this opportunity to grow in self-confidence and authentic self-expression. It’ll be easy to articulate your innermost thoughts and it’s an excellent time for more abstract work than you might be used to. Take some time to yourself and, if you’re feeling anxious or more emotional than usual, you could be working through some unexpressed emotion. Those subconscious issues might be causing problems in your body – taking a look at them can set you on the path of healing. Using a journal, meditating, and taking note of your dreams will be helpful. Collectors and gallerists should aim to stay away from drama-heavy people, or be prepared to be the voice of steadiness and reason to keep things calm. Hosting events would be especially beneficial after the 12th. You have obsessive focus around the 25th, it’s a perfect time to delve deep into the details of subject matters that are calling to you.

Keep a notebook with you - you are likely to have a lot of creative, unorthodox ideas that can pay off down the line. This would be an excellent time to join a club or a professional organization where you can share ideas with like-minded people. It can also lead to wonderful, lasting relationships that can help you grow at a professional and personal level. Take the opportunity to brainstorm and plan for the future, this is a great time to get clear on where you want to go.

This can be a great time for growth in Cancer artists’ career, who will be able to be clearer than ever about their goals. It’s a great time for the big, ambitious creative projects. You’re able to attract the right people to you – if you don’t feel you have people that really get you, socialize outside your usual groups. The full moon of the 12th in your house of creativity and self-expression can bring enormous transformation and possibilities you hadn’t thought of. Stay open and ride the wave of emotion, you don’t need to get consumed by it. Collectors and gallerists can greatly expand starting this month, whether it’s their space or collections.

You’ll be at your best when doing research or seeking the truth behind appearances. You’ll be especially concerned with honesty and authenticity. Telling the truth becomes more important than worrying about what others think and that will be extremely freeing. The status quo is not for you right now, embrace your uniqueness and originality and don’t be afraid to disagree with prevailing views. Many need to hear what you want to say. Flashes of insight and breakthrough ideas are likely, especially around the 10th.

Collectors and gallerists who had been looking for the right business partners or investors, this is the time. The days around the 31st are especially good for bargaining and bidding. It’s also a great time to go through your possessions and eliminate anything that doesn’t speak to who you are anymore. Inspiration and emotion are high around the 9th.

SAGITTARIUS november 21 - december 20

It’s a very productive month for Sagittarius artists and an excellent time to tackle highly detail-oriented projects. You might feel conflicted between fulfilling your obligations and doing what you really want to do. If so, consider that doing the things that bring you genuine joy (not the time-killing distractions that leave you empty after) will give you the energy to do the more mundane tasks that need to be done. Your world expands mid-month, take the opportunities to socialize whether with friends or colleagues, there’s a great chance of some interesting connections with people who can motivate you. Collectors and gallerists, you might be feeling very driven and competitive, use that drive to set more challenging goals but don’t get trapped in ego battles that will only deplete you. Remember what you really want is fulfillment and freedom, not drama. Inspiration is through the roof around the 19th. Business deals are win-win on the 12th.

CAPRICORN december 21 - january 20

This is a month of huge creativity for Capricorn artists – your talent and discipline have paved the way for fulfilling new opportunities. You’re able to integrate the past and the future, tradition with progress. Remain open and don’t dismiss ideas that appear crazy at first. Any challenges you are meeting now are meant to open you up for much more than you’ve ever thought possible. Don’t take anything personally – if something hurts your ego, take it as a step towards your liberation, that is, towards being truly free from what others think. Follow your heart and express yourself authentically. For collectors and gallerists, business can meet with some opposition (especially around the end of the month), but stay firm, trust your inner guidance and you’ll overcome any obstacle successfully. Great days for business around the 19th. Inspiration – especially for writing projects – is high between the 10th and 13th.
