Study astrology and sexuality from someone boldly curious and creative about the subject — who has heard it all. The idea of this class is to get underneath society’s (and astrology’s) usual (less than hopeful) ideas about sex and relating to other humans, and see how many fresh ideas come out of the chart. The zodiac has a place for everyone; this is not a matter of “one size fits all.”

If Your Birthday is May 6
(The Day of Materialized Fantasy) | Taurus Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Relationships seem to be a key focus today. It matters little whether you think they are going smoothly or not: it’s the fact of interacting with someone who is important to you that holds satisfaction, as does the intensity of your feelings. Use your desire for emotional contact with another to learn something new about your relationships and how you feel about them. This kind of insight is always useful, whether now or down the road.
Written in the Planets
Today the Moon enters Libra. This brings it into contact with retrograde Jupiter. How do you feel about your relationships, generosity and any people-pleasing tendencies? The Libra Moon will also oppose planets in Aries between today and tomorrow: first Venus this afternoon, then Pallas, Eris, Mercury and Uranus. Notice how you feel about your own role in your relationships. Also pay attention to how your relationships reflect larger cultural or social media trends. With Mercury still quite slow and powerful (and still tucked between Uranus and Eris), how you’re thinking and communicating matters. Proceeding with care and staying grounded in your body should help you roll with whatever you encounter; today, in particular, looks good for new relationship insights.
