Today’s I Ching Hexagram for May 1 is 25: Innocence

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for Everyone:

25: Innocence

Sunday, May 1st, 2011

Hexagram 25
General Meaning: Innocence flows from a natural harmlessness, openness and pure intentions, unsullied by ulterior motives. The state of innocence has less to do with age than attitude; innocence springs from a heart that remains open to joy and wonder. Innocence, when guided by a firm faith in what is right, brings supreme success. Naiveté unanchored by an ability to discern right from wrong, on the other hand, brings misfortune.

The hallmark of innocence is a willingness to treat others with compassion and respect in a natural way. Those who possess a pure heart are best guided by their instincts and intuition. Thinking too much makes it difficult to hear the guidance of the heart, the suggestions of a clear intuition. Stay simple and be wary of cleverness.

Today’s Tarot Card for May 1st is The Fool

Today’s Tarot Card for Everyone:

The Fool

This Tarot Deck: Aquarian

General Meaning: Pamela Coleman-Smith’s artful rendition of an “innocent Fool” archetype (Rider-Waite deck) is often used to represent Tarot in general. Early classical versions of the Fool card, however, portray quite a different character — a person driven by base needs and urges, who has fallen into a state of poverty and deprivation.

In some instances, he is made out to be a carnival entertainer or a huckster. In others, he is portrayed as decrepit and vulnerable — as the cumulative result of his delusions and failures. Not until the 20th century do you see the popular Rider-Waite image of the Fool arise — that of an innocent Soul before its Fall into Matter, as yet untainted by contact with society and all its ills.

Modern decks usually borrow from the Rider-Waite imagery. Most Fool cards copy the bucolic mountainside scene, the butterfly, the potential misplaced step that will send the Fool tumbling into the unknown. Don’t forget, however, that the earlier versions of this card represented already-fallen humanity, over-identified with the material plane of existence, and beginning a pilgrimage towards self-knowledge, and eventually, wisdom. The Fool reminds us to recognize the path of personal development within ourselves — and the stage upon that path where we find ourselves — in order to energize our movement toward deeper self-realization.

Basic Overview of the Month to Come, May

May Horoscope 2011

by Jeff Jawer

Feel Your Senses Come Alive


Earthy Taurus is highly activated this month as May begins with the Sun in a sign that awakens us to our senses and the physical delights of our planet. Taste, touch, smell, sight and sound enrich us with comforting experiences to please our bodies. There is, though, more than a dash of stubbornness in Taurus that is likely to reduce flexibility until the solar shift into adaptable Gemini on May 21.

Physical Mars enters the sign of the Bull on May 11 to slow the pace of activity. Yet persistence and patience can make us even more productive. Traditional astrology considers Taurus to be a difficult place for fiery Mars as this fixed earth sign inhibits the adventurousness and ability to take bold action associated with this planet.

On May 15 mental Mercury and loving Venus enter Taurus, adding reason and caution. Venus is the ruler of Taurus, suggesting a greater degree of common sense and values that help us appreciate the gifts we have and to recognize the true worth of people and things.

The New Moon in Taurus on May 2 forms a harmonious 120-degree trine with transformational Pluto, adding power and deeper perceptions that make it easier to eliminate waste and focus on essential details. A conjunction of active Mars and expansive Jupiter in Aries adds a dash of enthusiasm for new experiences that are likely to produce tangible results thanks to Taurean resourcefulness and pragmatism. On May 17 the Full Moon in emotionally complex Scorpio opposes the simple Taurus Sun, forcing relationship and financial issues into the foreground. Scorpionic desires and fears could become dramatic as discontent pushes emotional buttons.

The atmosphere grows lighter with the Sun’s entry into airy Gemini on May 21, quickly followed by a solar square with Neptune on May 22. This strong 90-degree angle with the planet of dreams inspires faith and fantasies. Compassion and creativity are among its gifts but evasions of reality could cause confusion, weaken authority and diffuse focus. Still, a sexy Venus-Mars conjunction in Taurus on May 23 lures us back into our bodies as we enjoy tastes and touches that have a perfect balance of comfort and stimulation.

Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, May 1


General Daily Horoscope


A burst of positive energy can free us from yesterday’s heaviness, tempting us to go overboard. Feisty Mars conjuncts buoyant Jupiter today, expanding our vision of life, magnifying the importance of current events and giving us a more optimistic outlook for the future. It may be difficult to rein in our enthusiasm, leading us to make promises we cannot keep. The impetuous Aries Moon joins Mars and Jupiter to further encourage the good times.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Sometimes too much of a good thing is not a good thing. The exuberant Moon-Mars-Jupiter conjunction happening now in your fiery sign may be enough to blast you into orbit, but you’ll need to pay extra careful attention to managing your energy reserves. It’s challenging for you to think about tomorrow when there are six planets in Aries today. Anything you can do to soothe your soul or settle your wild ideas will help to make this a more memorable time.



Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You may be all worked up over a new idea today, but won’t necessarily put too much effort into making your vision come true. It’s not that you’re particularly lazy now; it’s just that your common sense could overrule your excitement. Remember, your plan deserves enough time to develop before prematurely rushing into action, especially if it’s as brilliant as you think it is.



Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

This continues to be a socially oriented weekend, but you may actually reach a point where you exhaust yourself just by having fun. Knowing when you’ve had enough is a sign of maturity, but setting limits can sometimes be a challenge. Overcome your fear of missing out on something special; call it quits and take some time to relax so you’ll feel rejuvenated and refreshed going into the week ahead.



Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Although this may be a day away from work, your mind is likely focused on your status in the professional world. This might even involve making plans to accomplish your ambitious career goals. Your optimistic outlook creates an immediate impact on activities with friends or family members today. If you have earned the respect of those you love, enjoy basking in their appreciation. But don’t waste time hesitating now; it’s your turn to take charge.



Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You can burn off excess energy today by doing something physical such as going on a long hike or working in the yard. But it’s also important to engage your mind by learning something new. You may be satisfied by having a discussion with a friend about an entirely unique course of study, perhaps involving religion, metaphysics or politics. Whatever you choose to do now, reach out beyond your comfort zone because going the distance will be far more rewarding than staying on familiar ground.



Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your interest in getting to the bottom of a mystery could be a bit over the top today. You want answers and you are prepared to ask whatever questions are necessary to find the missing information. However, your obsessive curiosity might seem confrontational, even if that’s not your intention. You’ll make more progress if you don’t push so hard. Be as transparent as possible so your actions are not misunderstood.


Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

A close friend or family member may be so optimistic today that you think he or she has gone overboard. At first it’s fun being around people who are upbeat and interested in doing something out of the ordinary. But, eventually you realize that you might be the one who needs to issue a reality check. However, don’t try to change others by raining on their parade. All you have to do is be clear about the limits of your participation.



Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

This is a perfect day to begin a spring cleaning project with energetic Mars joining visionary Jupiter in your 6th House of Details. You have a clear sense of what you want to accomplish now and you have the stamina to get things done. However, you must take a big job and break it down into smaller manageable tasks in order to be efficient. Just make sure that you don’t bite off more than you can chew or you’ll be tired at the end of the day with little to show for your hard work.



Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Blowing up balloons can be fun if you know when to stop; otherwise they pop, leaving you with nothing. Likewise, when red-hot Mars fires up buoyant Jupiter today, you could get into trouble by taking a good idea and turning it into such a big deal that it eventually fizzles. Fun-filled activities can put a wonderful smile on your face now as long as you remember to moderate your natural inclination for bigger, better and more.



Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

As much as you may enjoy a day off to spend at home with your family, too much domestic activity might have you thinking about ways to escape. It’s not that you want to be somewhere else; it’s just that you won’t likely want to give up an entire day without having something tangible to show for it. Try involving others in some sort of home improvement project. If they seem more interested in having fun, join in the festivities for a while and then excuse yourself so you can accomplish something on your own.



Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You are buzzing around today like a busy bee, flying from one flower to the next in a field filled with exciting distractions. There are so many possibilities you might feel a bit lost because you don’t know where to start or what to do next. However, you would be better off to save your rational thinking for another day; now it’s better to just jump in and have fun. Act first and analyze later.



Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Many people believe that material abundance begins with having healthy self-esteem. The uplifting Mars-Jupiter conjunction in your 2nd House of Self-Worth indicates that your self-confidence is on the rise now and could help you make an important decision. Fortunately, your current choices have a direct impact on your prosperity in the weeks ahead. Set your goals high and reach a little further than you normally would.

Sunday, May 01, 2011


Aries (March 21 – April 19)
A huge spacecraft will hover over your dwelling structure today, and secretly analyze you down to the last parasitic microbe in your epidermal layers. They will be on the point of making contact with humans, and offering us technology to cure all illness, let us live indefinately while looking like healthy 20-year-olds, and give us the ability to travel interstellar distances in an eyeblink…when they spot you making something with SPAM. After a bit of horrified bleeping at each other, they will zoom off, never to return.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
A man dressed like a giant shrimp will roar past you in an experimental hovercraft, today. (Again.)
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Today you will discover the original version of the nursery rhyme: “Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon. The little dog laughed to see such fun, because he was mentally impaired.”
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Today you will go into the prosthetic forehead business, having heard that everyone wants a prosthetic forehead to wear on their real forehead. It would be a good idea to do your own market research, in this case, before sinking all your savings in this venture.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
A person named “Elmo” will call you repeatedly, and will refuse to believe that he’s dialed a wrong number.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Beware of bubonic plague today. Other than that, things will be fairly normal.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You will be buffeted by hordes of people, who will all simultaneously show up in your office “just to chat.” Eventually, you will make your escape by locking yourself in the bathroom.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
You find that after all these years, you are finally beginning to conquer your fears. You will find that oddly frightening.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You’ve been trying to sell your car, and it just isn’t going anywhere. Sometimes it helps if you have a name for your vehicle, to give it more character. I call mine the “Millennium Falcon”. My passengers often become irritated at being called “Chewie”, though.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
Good day to stand on the sidewalk near a tall building, and stare up at the roof. You’ll meet some interesting people that way.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
You will be forced to re-evaluate your boss’ IQ, when you discover that he is looking forward to the release of “Titanic II”.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Nobody knows the trouble you’ve seen. Except for Bob, that is. You know – the quiet neighbor, with the binoculars?
