Weekly Horoscope 5/20 – 26

GETTING DOWN TO BUSINESS IN THE GEMINI HALL OF MIRRORS

This is an excellent week for productivity, and conversations that benefit enterprise or encourage cooperation among colleagues are well aspected. Mercury is very active from Taurus, linking up to Jupiter and Neptune (currently in a really good vibes trine from Scorpio to Pisces) and harmonizing with Pluto at the end of the week. This is a great atmosphere for making decisions and tapping intuition and hunches, and any effort made towards goals (both personal and regarding business objectives) find a favorable climate in which to thrive and prosper.

Mid week could be less than the ideal moment for sealing an important deal. With Mercury in opposition to Jupiter, it’s easy to over estimate the potentials involved and go overboard in a speculative activity. Meanwhile there could be a chance piece of luck that comes your way – so it’s possible there is an auspicious outcome, particularly where objectives tying back to a something you started around October 18 of last year is emphasized. With Sun and Mars in trine, the mental sphere is lively and communication and decision making is enhanced.

Jupiter and Neptune are in a favorable alignment throughout the week, culminating effortlessly on Friday morning. Harmony and even enchantment is possible as a deeply felt spiritual and emotional resonance is present. Events from last December may resurface or peak at this time, and a second chance is possible to realize an important dream. The 3rd contact occurs on August 19th, so an event this week may serve to advance a storyline that manifests in a few more months, after Jupiter has resumed direct motion.

The love life can be a bit strained, as Venus makes challenging aspects with Mars and Saturn. A relationship is certainly in frame, but likely going through some growing pains. In order to develop a connection and take it to the next level, there is a misunderstanding that needs to be cleared up, otherwise a point of evaluation is in store to determine if this particular partnership really has what it takes to step forward with you into the future. Depending on the state of your affairs, you may decide to get serious now or otherwise realize a relationship is simply not suitable. It’s also possible that commitments or an obstacle external to your partnership makes it untenable, at least for the time being, to see progress. Either way a significant turning point is in store next weekend.

Sun in Gemini from Sunday evening is a bit like walking through a hall of mirrors. Fractious and diverse interests are stimulated by Gemini’s’ abundance of curiosity. Sun receives a supportive beam from Aquarius midweek, stimulating intellect. Expect an important development to transpire regarding cyber currencies – this aspect occurs at the degree of the Uranus (Gemini) – Pluto (Aquarius) trine that will occur between 2025 – 2026. My educated guess foresees this transit as the complete integration of a global digital currency system… we’ll see what happens. 😉 Have a great week!

EXTENDED WEEKLY + JUNE ADVANCE HOROSCOPE AVAILABLE FOR PATREON SUBSCRIBERS

STARSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

Work and financial matters are in frame for you this week, with especially positive developments set for next weekend. If you have been working towards a promotion you could get word that your application is being pushed through. Otherwise, Friday is fruitful for brainstorming a new trajectory in your profession. Socially this is an advantageous period, and the pace of daily life is likely quite exciting for the upcoming month. You equally enjoy the peace of your home and familiars, and if your relationship is getting serious, you might discuss shared living arrangements.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

This is a very active phase for you and a key negotiation mid week likely yields a very positive result for you professionally. You will likely see the outcomes of conversations you begin now in July, during the Aquarius eclipse period. A partnership wish comes true this week, as your heart is activated in subtle but beautiful ways. Friends or associates could prove difficult, meanwhile, and there could be a misunderstanding over the weekend that calls into question how reliable a collaborator really is.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

The Sun enters your sign Sunday, promising a period of renewal after an extended gestation. With Mercury still operating behind the scenes, though, you might still be keeping a low profile, at least until the 29th when a Full Moon rocks you and Mercury finally segues into your sign. From there you can give voice to your dreams and aspirations, until then reflection is aspected. You have the potential to unearth treasures from within if you listen to your inner muse. Instincts and intuition (even clairvoyance) are highlighted in this phase, especially towards the end of the week. Tune in.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

Venus from your sign makes this one of the more positive periods of 2018 for Cancer, though there may be a stumbling block in a close partnership next weekend. A harmonious influence linking prosperous benefic Jupiter to mysterious (and mirage inducing) Neptune underscores a very positive ambience meanwhile, so it’s likely you just need to clarify things with your spouse or partner and make sure you are on the same page in regard to the direction a relationship is heading in. Time out for yourself is helpful over the coming weeks.

LEO July 23 – August 22

The week begins with the Moon in your sign, offering a definitive advantage. If you are seeking to move up the professional ladder, this is a great time for some important conversations to take place. Make a plan and stick to it. Domestic harmony can mutually be restored in this period, and if there have been any troubling issues around your residence, a good heart to heart can patch things up quickly. You are entering a very socially vibrant month, and an event mid week can stimulate a significant introduction.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

You have the ability to articulate your vision now, especially in regard to a creative project or regarding your children. Friday is optimal for a significant conversation or realization to occur. A partnership may be crucial to the attainment of your desires. Observing how far you have come since the end of last year in a love relationship can be bittersweet if you haven’t reached the destination you had hoped you would have by now. Feelings that emerge next Saturday are highly revealing of where you might have some work to do. By Autumn, very different conditions preside over your love life.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Financial and professional matters are highlighted this week, with positive developments on both fronts for the most part. Deals and negotiations go off quite well and there is the potential to reach a culmination with your dream job or through a financial prospect that comes through for you. This one has been in the works since last December, and it may be that advancement of a particular storyline signals your ship is indeed coming in this August. Someone finds your success disconcerting, as you will learn next weekend.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

Venus in harmonious relationship to your sign gives you a satisfying emotional resonance, and coupled with a stunning combination between Jupiter (in your sign) and Neptune spells out a very promising period for you. The more vexing matters of the last few months seem to be at bay (though early Scorpio experiencing the Uranus opposition may feel somewhat differently). Clarifying your goals and intentions in a partnership are highlighted this week, as Mercury makes illuminating contacts that enable you to reveal your true desires. Intimate matters are also culminating with Sun in a cathartic area of your chart: how far you are able to go with someone comes down to how much you are willing to reveal.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

Work and profession get a boost this week. You are likely seeing motion on an assignment that will put you in the spotlight and showcase your skills. Friday is positive for negotiating a salary increase connected to your enhanced productivity. A personal or residential matter also in frame is enhanced through this prosperity as well and you can upgrade your living conditions as a result of hard work you have put in. A significant relationship also comes into the spot light over the coming month and a crucial conversation midweek signals the direction and shape of an alliance. A money matter can have a dampening effect next weekend and your best bet is to take the highroad and take care of unfinished business.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

Relational dynamics are emphasized, especially where a love connection is in the mix. You can explore pleasurable experiences with your mate through shared intellectual activities and articulate your desires in this period. A creative project can also get the juices flowing. Personal goals for future growth are reinforced through your connections with others. It’s possible a social or professional group has good news for you. A project or enterprise you began last December is staring to show signs of progress, with the final outcome likely coming in this August. Imagination is crucial to where this will lead you, as is trusting your instincts. A relationship goes through a critical period next weekend. Self awareness is your ally within a contentious situation and will help you steer the ship.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

Sun in Gemini speaks to your pleasure center, and a bold activation mid week can set your spirit soaring. Creative urges are strong, but hard to pin down. Keep a notebook or recorder handy to store ideas for projects. You also have good prospects to clarify domestic matters this week as intuition is strong regarding a residential move or upgrade. If you work from home you also benefit, as privacy offers you the required head space for insight. Tuning into the inner vision is emphasized, as your visionary abilities are stimulated. Professional matters begin to move forward, after a period of stasis, though you are likely to see the biggest improvements in August. Something you set into motion now bears directly on a positive outcome in the near future.

PISCES February 19 – March 20

This is a very harmonious period for you in which you can derive both pleasure and good fortune. Your social activities have a brisk and exciting quality to them, though you are likely to find the company of a select few more satisfying than the spreading yourself thin over a lot of people or invitations. A distant shore seems to be calling you and a dream or prophetic insight can reveal the locale later in the week. Start to squirrel away a savings to make a trip in August. With Jupiter direct you have carte blanche to make an amazing getaway. Partnership matters need attention at the beginning of the week. Someone offbeat seems to be getting into your head. Take the plunge!

Weekly Forecast 5/13-5/19

NEW WORLD ORDER

Events this week do much to set up the prevailing themes of the next six months, with a New Moon in Taurus (Tuesday) and the ingress of Mars (Aquarius) and Uranus (Taurus) forming a square midweek immediately after changing signs. Due to the upcoming retrogrades of both, this aspect occurs again in September, thus what is set into motion now likely does not fully materialize until this later point. The Taurus Full Moon in 6 months time will be conjunct to Uranus exactly. This week offers strong signals as to what the new world order will hold, and what in your own life is shifting to make room for it. Allow for an extended period of adaptation. The choices made in this critical period have a stronger than usual bearing on the future. (Incidentally, retrograde Jupiter is also currently transiting the degrees it will return to in September, upping the ante on current developments.)

It may be enticing under the dynamic and disruptive influence of Mars square Uranus (Wednesday) to jump the shark and go charging in guns blazing, but the message of the retrograde shadow phase (beginning Saturday May 12) is to take it slowly and allow for reversals. A triggering event sets much into motion – albeit slow motion. Mars moving at this measured pace means less energy to work with, as well as lower drive and even reluctance. The New Moon connects to both Mars and Pluto, making for a gritty and determined atmosphere. Power to persevere is the theme for the next month. From Taurus the New Moon affirms that slow and steady wins the race.

What also comes into question is the tension stimulated by the changes that will occur in financial systems during the Uranus – Taurus transit, and whether these will serve the humanitarian objectives of Aquarius. Innovation in order to achieve this transformation is a significant driver for the transformation that is occurring at this time. For the time being, there is disorder as these issues stimulate massive recalibration of access to resources and how they are distributed (as expressed most implicitly through the transformation to digital and crypto currencies), throughout society. Look at what is going on this week conscientiously, as events now will be reflective of what occurs in August, as well as what will be advanced forward at that time. Journaling is a good way to keep track of what’s going on so you can examine it later.

Mercury races through Taurus from Sunday, conjuncting Uranus in Aries one last time before checking out. This will mark the last conjunction in Aries of these two for over 80 years. A fortuitous and unexpected development may take place, one either in the works for years, or over the recent months. Moon in Aries connects during the afternoon, so a big conversation can culminate at this time, the atmosphere will be dynamic! Expect a breakthrough and be ready to take action swiftly. Aries is NOT going to wait around for anyone.

EXTENDED WEEKLY FORECAST + JUNE ADVANCE ACCESS (w special Mars retrograde horoscope) AVAILABLE FOR PATREON SUBSCRIBERS HERE 

STARSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19
You’ll feel truly palpable shifts in the atmosphere this week. First a very dynamic lunar cycle in your sign brings matters to a head on Sunday and you can finally articulate your viewpoint after months of uncertainty. From Wednesday, you’ll feel less disruption as Uranus leaves your sign. You have been required to assert your independence and hopefully been successful at attaining the liberation you desired (though this was likely pretty difficult under the auspices of Uranus/Pluto). From here you can start to focus on developing the security you seek, though this could prove tumultuous at times in it’s own way. Taking an innovative approach or retraining in a more contemporary (tech) skill set could be required.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20
It would be easy to be overwhelmed by the incredible developments occurring this week, so stick to how you do it – nice and easy. Uranus in your sign has a sparkling influence on your personality but can also leave you frazzled. Professional developments are going through a major process of reorientation too, which you get clues about this week. The climate improves from Fall onward, but there are certain adjustments to be made and potentially some retraining is necessary to make the progress you would desire. A New Moon in your sign on Tuesday sets you on the right track. The path you seek resonates clearly and you can set a course.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20
The next two weeks are appropriate for introspective activities, as your inner vision is stimulated in this phase. Potent messages that arise around the New Moon come from your deepest subconscious and intuition. It might be the appropriate time to consult a therapist or spiritual advisor for guidance, especially if you are feeling you have debilitating connections or psychological issues tied to the past that seek resolution. Mars in Aquarius bodes well for you, and though it’s in a slow phase right now, the prospects of the future glimmer brightly. A transformative phase occurs between the present and the future you seek. Don’t be afraid to look within, as what you need to discover is right beneath the surface.

CANCER June 21 – July 22
Certain challenges come to conclusion now, as disruptive influences of the Uranus square diminish. You get more support over the coming phase with the transit through Taurus, and will benefit from exciting personal connections and an expanded list of friends and associates. Mars leaving Capricorn also takes some heat of your interpersonal exchanges, though a situation with a spouse or partner (look for clues this week) will require reorientation later in the Summer. For now at least you can enjoy less friction in the ambience. New goals come into focus, and transformation will be emphasized over the coming months, particularly in intimate or business relationships.

LEO July 23 – August 22
Very new dynamics come into play over the coming weeks and months, with an emphasis placed on critical angles of your chart and both professional and relational matters coming into play. Specifically, you will desire growth in your career, but tense associations with a partner or spouse are also going to require attention and mediation. If you can juggle your commitments you’ll come out on top, but try not to let the friction you might experience during these transitions to overwhelm you. The New Moon points to a new professional direction and gains you have made at work will make these tenable for you over the next six months. Take it nice and easy to set the stage for success.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22
There are some vexing influences afoot, and though they are unlikely to affect you too personally, you may notice discord in the lives of those around you, especially coworkers. Meanwhile there are very positive influences in store, particularly as Mercury moves into Taurus. As you default ruler, (some astrologers attribute the asteroid Chiron to your sign) having Mercury occupy an obtuse angle of you chart for so long (about two and a half months) has required continual reorganization, especially in your intimate and financial associations. You can make a lot of progress over the rest of the month, and early Virgo especially will feel the excitement percolating with Uranus in Taurus. Concerning matters regarding health or your connection to a loved one will be emphasized throughout the Summer, with a significant development now precipitating what is finally resolved in September.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23
Unexplored dynamics between you and another take center stage. Resolution of a domestic or personal matter is required before this one can really move to the next phase of development, and you are more likely to see progress from September onward. Meanwhile, there is a more settled feeling to your associations as Uranus moves out of Aries and ceases to have such a dramatic influence on your partnerships. Nonetheless – a completely unanticipated conversation, meeting or piece of information arrives this Sunday, that could shift things swiftly. The New Moon stimulates an intimate phase. If a relationship is getting more serious, you may decide to cohabitate in about six months time. Till then domestic life is a bit of a work in progress, especially at the end of Summer. Events now point to what is in store and where the work is required.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
The effects of Uranus in opposition to your sign has many dimensions. (If you are reading for Scorpio ascendant, this transit applies more to your relationships, for Sun there is a more personal connotation.) In one form or another, a series of events will compel you defend and/or liberate yourself, or even defend your liberty! To describe this influence is disruptive is only one part of it – what is occurring on a more psychological level is forging a path to greater autonomy and engaging deeply in a more resonant relationship to yourself. Usually, this path is clamorous and provides a challenge or obstacle, or unsettled circumstances that compel the realization of that affect. Relationships you have outgrown will phase out now on the positive side, while new ones that arise will likely have an urgency to them that dissipates as suddenly as it occurs.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21
A major emphasis is developing on angles of your chart representing adjustment and learning, with work and daily life emphasized this week forward. Finding a way to keep up with your expanding role on the job could be tricky, and your schedule likely to be keeping you busy. A New Moon this week points to where you can improve your productivity, health and well being. You likely stand to gain considerable ground here, and perhaps you can find a new position that adds to your income. Friday is particularly effective for an interview or seeking a promotion. Think about where you would like to be in 6 months, and likely good things will unfold for you.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
The developing forecast will take some of the pressure off you, especially in regard to unsettled domestic situations. Where you may have contended with a bumpy ride, things can level out now. A more stable home base will enable you to pursue other passions, especially where personal projects and love affairs are emphasized. This period provides a refreshing atmosphere and seeking out that which gives you pleasure. Friday is also ideal for articulating your goals or making a decision or effort that will impact your future. The New Moon can reveal hidden desires or where creative desires may have stagnated. With Venus accenting the partnership area of your chart, love could be on the way to you shortly. Next Saturday is especially appealing.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Mars in your sign would usually propel you to take swift action, especially where ideas or the written word can be concerned. This time though, with Mars entering your sign at a slower pace than normal, you’ll be a bit more reluctant to jump into projects or affiliations until you have more reliable information to act upon, which could take a few months. Your personal life takes center stage meanwhile, and you likely see some big developments with family or a residential matter. The upcoming transit of Uranus here will require some experimentation (followed by reorganization) of domestic matters and pushing some boundaries with those closest to you and claiming independence where you see fit. Expect some clashes, followed by a new order of things.

PISCES February 19 – March 20
Big developments are occurring on two fronts – both your conscious and subconscious are illuminated this week, and getting these to come to terms might be a bit of a challenge. Early Pisces will be the most effected, as Uranus stimulates the mental sphere and provides excitement in your social life. You might get the urge to write a book or start a blog, and there could be developments within this project over the next 6 months. Meanwhile there is an emphasis culminating in the deep and dark depths of your subconscious mind, a transit that will expose you to your secrets through mid November. Apparently you have some mining to do in your private world, and this can be enhanced through meditation or psychotherapy. Take some time to uncover the roots of habits or anxiety during this period in order to maximize your effectiveness when Mars reaches your sign later in the year.

Stargazer May Horoscope

The big news for May is the movement of Uranus into Taurus on the 15th, a substantive shift in energy fields that will endure through 2025 (allowing for a brief segue back through late Aries from November – March 2019). Primarily this transit affects material security, and as discussed in greater depth in my essay in the 2018 Stargazer astrology guide, particularly references the transition to digital currency, which has already taken fundamental steps through the introduction of crypto assets such as Bitcoin, Etherium et. al. as well as the emergence of the sharing economy and other aspects of life and livelihood undergoing the technology revolution, particularly via Blockchain integration.

Mercury taps Uranus in the last degree of Aries on the 13th, just hours before moving into Taurus. An important realization or conversation occurs in the area of your chart containing 29’ Aries, and one likely long overdue, as the recent retrograde cycle of Mercury delayed this contact for the bulk of the last few months. A real breakthrough is possible now, as the final articulation of the objectives of Uranus in Aries (liberation and independence) occurs. From Taurus, both planets will seek to bring those objectives into material form to whatever extent plausible. It’s one thing to imagine something and a complete other to materialize it, as will become evident between now and November, when the retrograde of Uranus back into Aries offers one more opportunity back at the drawing board.

Just about the same time Uranus shifts into Taurus, Mars moves into Aquarius, and the two form a tense square aspect on the 16th, potentially revealing what the long term implications are regarding the significant trends emerging over the coming decade. Love it or hate it, life as it is currently known it is about to change in very fundamental ways. There is a real dynamic push at this time – look back to initiations that occurred in the end of February 2017, during the 22’ Aries conjunction, as there is a culmination at this point that references events and directives that occurred in that time frame. This is the “finishing touches” phase of the Mars – Uranus cycle, which is prolonged through next January… because:

By May 12th, Mars settles into the portion of the Zodiac it will occupy through early October. Transiting a measly 11’ Degrees (28’ Capricorn – 9’ Aquarius) during this period, there is an intensification of the area triggered within your chart, as well as a palpable, diminished shift in inertia over the next 5 months. Retrograde cycles always indicate having to reassess an area of life through the energetic filter of the planet involved, in this case Mars – ones’ will and the way in which you assert yourself in order to get what you desire. For first decan Taurus, Leo and Scorpio, this may be an especially vexing period, as Mars applies pressure on you throughout the duration of this transit. For the signs who least like change, it becomes inevitable at this point.

Mars interacts with the South Node on 3 separate occasions during the retrograde cycle, suggesting a double karmic whammy. Something unresolved requires reassessment and reorganization in order to be reconciled. These associations can link back to prior lives and represent karmic dues that need repayment. In some cases, it you who is due repayment, and something may turn up in your favor, a gift of some kind may emerge over the course of these transits that is quite beneficial, a turn of good fortune is payback for something that occurred in a prior incarnation. De ja vous experiences during these contacts will be strong, and should remind you that you are going in the right direction, even if that direction currently feels backwards.

Regardless of the specific outcome, an area requires fresh tactics in order to manifest. Figuring out what it is involves releasing the past – objectively and subjectively. Paying off some karmic debts (or receiving your due) in this period frees you to the future, so take care of any and all unfinished business. Also, expect a loss of momentum in the area ruled by Mars in your natal chart (i.e., I have Libra rising, Mars governs my 7th house….).

STARSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19
You feel a big shift inside you this month, as Uranus leaves your sign, moving into Taurus mid month. In some ways you’ll feel more at ease, maybe even able to sleep at night for the first time in years! There are some growing pains occurring in your values and finances meanwhile, which point to other matters of self discovery which will culminate in late Summer. Listen to the clues and insights that reveal themselves on the 1st and 19th. The New Moon on the 15th points to developing a new source of income and feelings of increased self worth. Socially this is a favorable time and you’ll enjoy connecting with like minded people throughout the month. Sensitivity and a desire to cocoon from the 20th is also indicated. Decorate and enjoy your home for the next 4 weeks. Nonetheless, you’ll enjoy even the most routine of your day to day affairs and meetings this month.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20
Spring, renewal and rebirth are your themes this month especially around the New Moon in your sign on the 15th. Time to blow out all the musty cobwebs of the old and ring in all that is new. Signals get crossed this month regarding your profession, knowing Mars will soon retrograde you intuitively may sense what occurs now is a false start. Both the 1st and 19th can be challenging as you continue to adjust to a new status quo. Uranus in your sign from the 17th brings with it a highly electrifying ambience. You may not be able to sleep (early Taurus will be the first affected,) and because you are conducting at a higher frequency than normal you have to really watch for accidents or other missteps, appliances and electricity impose a certain threat for you. Mercury also transits your sign this month making for a very busy and exciting social season. Make those calls and connect with your people. It’s a great time to attend gatherings and events.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20
There could be a culminating moment in a partnership this month, a Full Moon in Sagittarius can bring things to a head in an ongoing love affair. Venus in your sign sets a positive vibe for kindling a romance, though things can go a bit sideways on the 7th. As Uranus shifts into Taurus, you get strange signals and sensations from deep down. Your psychic head space could get a bit gnarly, you might have trouble sleeping. Mars in Aquarius from the 17th makes you more at ease with yourself. Great news arrives regarding a professional goal or potential promotion on the 25th. You could get a project or assignment that taps into your long range goals or else receive assistance in making a personal agenda come into fruition. Instincts will be strong and point you in the right direction on this one.

CANCER June 21 – July 22
Mars begins to wind down in your area of partners (or so you think, you’ll be revisiting this topic again in a few months time) in order to get shared financials in frame from the 17th. This will likely prove a false start, as everything that is put into motion after the 12th will likely need to get reworked between now and October. (Thusly forewarned, and hopefully you read through this in advance, you may wish to schedule your bigger endeavors for the more favorable and dynamic period between January and April.) Especially after June 27th, energy levels will become sluggish, and while you can still accomplish things at a modest scale and pace, this is not the most fortuitous period to begin new projects or relationships. After a retiring phase Venus will enter your sign from the 20th stimulating highly pleasurable influences and helping you develop a love bond and enjoy a period of abundance in one form or another. The 26th signals it’s time to quit or commit. Check in with yourself and see where your heart lies at this crucial turning point.

LEO July 23 – August 22
The New Moon on the 15th signals a new professional chapter for you, as the efforts you put in during the prior cycle finally pay off. Events on the 1st and 19th can be disconcerting, you may ask if your heart is in it and consider how much of a personal sacrifice you are willing to make in order to succeed. Really enticing social opportunities are featured this month, and connecting with friends and allies, perhaps collaborating on a creative project, could be a fun expression of this energy. The Full Moon on the 29th is ideal for recreation and self expression. You make an exciting contribution to a group project. From the 16th – 17th, you start to get an inkling you aren’t in Kansas anymore. Monumental shifts effecting your partnerships and career are beginning to take hold, and these will be significant to the story lines not only for the rest of 2018, but for years to come.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22
If you have been toying with the idea of returning to college or going for an advanced degree, perhaps trying out a whole new field of study all together, this may be the month things begin to percolate for you. A New Moon on the 15th coupled with unexpected and revolutionary Uranus moving into the area of higher learning could stimulate you to take advantage of the numerous online and vocational programs available and explore your options and opportunities for a new professional course, perhaps involving innovation or technology. A supportive friend could have a kind word on the 19th that triggers you to download that course catalogue or fill out that application (and actually send it in!). You remain high profile this month. Bask in the appreciation of what you have accomplished.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23
A financial review continues to be in order, and there could be a surplus on the 8th or 11th that helps you through. A New Moon on the 15th can point to a commitment with a spouse or an institution that changes your status considerably. Hash out agreements on the 25th. A fun and social ambience continues to prevail, though by the end of the month you may start to feel a bit wary, perhaps someone is experiencing a change of heart. The 26th can be especially challenging, though the whole last week can provide intuitive glimpses into what lies in store. This one plays out through the end of September and there will definitely be some detours in the road upcoming. Venus in Cancer from the 20th shines favorably on you professionally. You can earn a good reputation in this period and see positive growth over the coming four weeks. A combination of Jupiter and Neptune highlight idealism and glamour in your industry. A work project or assignment connected to the imaginative or inspirational will pay off for you in September.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
There is a bit more of a financial emphasis this month, and you may be merging assets in a relationship that is getting more serious or making important agreements with business partners. The 7th and 12th do not see matters working out to your best advantage and negotiations should be shelved until the 18th if possible. An exciting assignment at work on the 13th will keep you busy in the meanwhile. The 6th and 11th you feel a powerful connection to the one you love. The New Moon on the 15th could bring about an exciting development in a relationship, and Venus in Cancer from the 20th harmonizes beautifully with you. Travel could be on the agenda in the early part of the Summer. From the 17th begins a very long and potentially contentious transit (lasting through mid November,) regarding your home, property, family and your most personal life. Take notice of what’s occurring over the last few days of the month, as this is going to represent the key dynamic that requires resolution between now and the end of September.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21
Work – life balance is required of you this month as job opportunities compete with very exciting developments in your love life. Uranus moves into Taurus on the 16th, which has the long range effect of urging you to more independence and freedom in your work life. A theme of emancipation, perhaps working for yourself, rings crystal clear from mid month. Opportunities on the 11th, 18th and 25th will move you quickly towards your goals. Make time for relational matters, favored by Venus in your house of committed partnerships and later the Sun and Mercury. A trying moment on the 7th gives way to far better times ahead. Daily life and communication also pick up after the 17th, and you may be reconnecting with old friends and acquaintances over the Summer months. Easy does it on the 16th, as a disagreement or misunderstanding can rapidly spiral out of control. Take some “me” time during the Full Moon in your sign on the 29th, if you can. A celebration could also be in order, possibly a reunion of sorts.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
Mars continues to energize and inspire you to take action. The 11th, 18th and 25th are advantageous for making deals and putting plans into action. The early part of the month sees you busy at work, and there could be a creative or collaborative project at your workplace. Things could get a bit murky on the 7th, and productivity could be slow at the moment. The Mars transit lasts through the 16th. An emphasis on the love life comes in mid month, Mercury transiting the area of True Romance couples with Venus in Cancer, your relationship house from the 20th. This offers the advantage of being able to genuinely share your passions with someone you admire, and cultivate your bond through shared experiences. A challenge could arise on the 26th that calls the future of this contact into question. It may also just be time to seal the deal. Uranus moves into Taurus mid month, occupying a part of the zodiac that makes a far less prickly angle for you. You’ve learned how to deal with challenges to your persona and self image, now you can successfully integrate this new freedom you have found and allow it to illuminate your creativity and even love relationships.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Venus offers a very pleasurable ambience, enhancing love connections and your creative or recreational activities. There are tricky vibrations in store on the 7th, and you really should steer clear of those who would take advantage of your better nature. A strong domestic influence is highlighted when Uranus moves into Taurus on the 15th. You sense changes are in store on the 1st and 19th, and a partnership could tie into the developments you experience at this time. Important decisions or conversations regarding your residence or close family members occur on the 18th + 25th. You can reach good agreements, sign a lease or sell a home. The New Moon on the 15th opens a door and represents a new chapter. Professionally you receive accolades that lead to a lucrative deal around the 25th. Mars begins its’ very long transit of your sign on the 16th. Knowing you have months you can use this to your advantage and take things slowly at first, exploring your options and desires.

PISCES February 19 – March 20
Your social schedule and day to day life continue to keep you in the hustle, though this is a great month to nestle in a bit and take some personal time or work on your living quarters. Be wary of testing influences regarding property and family members or flat mates on the 7th. A tricky ambience could muck up a situation and it’s better to not to come any important determinations during that time. Uranus and a New Moon mid month can get you going on an exciting new writing project. Something you collaborate with others on (a documentary? performance art show? a children’s book?) provides a lot of satisfaction while stimulates curiosity and intellectual growth. You’ll feel ready to charge ahead on the 16th. Could be foolhardy, but why not follow your inspiration just to see where it leads? From the 17th you enter a prolonged introspective phase. This will make you very sensitized, as your intuition will be elevated and your innate empathic qualities very strong in this phase. The dream world and your imagination will also hold significance. What is tricky about this one is you might just want to do your own thing for a while, and that is fine, but if you act surreptitiously and think you have a great poker face, people will see through any facade or smoke and mirrors you may try to apply to your maneuvers and you could face recrimination for deeds you thought were utterly private or personal. Basically, your ego drives and agenda is far more visible to others than you realize, and you may act out of highly subjective motivations unintentionally. Consider moves carefully.

Stargazer 2 Weeks Forecast

TURNING TIDES
The main emphasis these next two weeks are connected to security matters – what we do for ourselves and that which we expect from or rely on others for. Resources and trust are both topics that occur in this space, and with Venus bouncing through social Gemini, there is likely to be a great deal of communication and some agility required in regard to these matters. From mid may, big shifts occur as Uranus moves into Taurus and Mars enters Aquarius for an extended stay. The next two weeks are about tying up loose ends and clearing the slate for these significant changes ahead.

The Full Moon in Scorpio (Sunday, April 29) is an emotional turning point through which a great deal of psychological detritus can be cleared. Any and all matters being purged at this point serve the long range mission of Saturn, and circumstances, commitments and obligations will be a big factor in determining what stays and what goes. This also makes the Full Moon a critical period for working towards achievement of a highly personal objective, resonating back to the earlier portion of 2018. Release is particularly potent now as situations can be seen for what they really are.

Mercury comes out of shadow within the first couple days of May, winding down it’s Aries transit with strong and punctuating aspects to Pluto and Uranus. Something that has been shelved or sidelined over the last two months comes to the forefront, requiring articulation and some sort of plan of action. Mercury-Uranus on the 13th can stimulate a brilliant breakthrough. From there, Taurus really takes over and dominates. It’s time to bring something into reality, whatever shape or form that might take.

Here is a 2 WEEK special forecast – on the road for work for a while… EXTENDED and MAY HOROSCOPES are now available for supporters on PATREON

STARSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19
This is a good time to make your position clear, though you first need to check in with yourself and know what you really want before you try to go out and get it. If you do so, you stand to gain, especially professionally. You have cosmic protection to get what you deserve, but the key to that is knowing your personal worth. A partnership matter that may have been contentious can be resolved and assets divided appropriately.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20
You’ve spent the better part of the last few months rooting around in the cellar of your subconscious. In there you have managed to retrieve some long forgotten – but worthwhile ideas and put to bed the ghosts of the past. From this place you move forward towards one of the more dynamic periods of your year, if not your life. A culmination regarding a partnership (quit or commit?) during the Full Moon in Scorpio has future connotations. Where you see yourself going with this person is crucial.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20
Venus in your sign enhances your popularity and stimulates a favorable ambience for attainment of your personal objectives. Your peripheral vision needs a check in, meanwhile, so that you might avoid getting blindsided by a financial matter during the upcoming weeks. Advancement at work or a plumb assignment could be yours during the Full Moon in Scorpio that assists your outlook. Social life remains exciting though at least one argument or misunderstanding could setback an otherwise positive period.

CANCER June 21 – July 22
Professional entanglements dissipate and what ever set backs may have occurred over the prior weeks you can finally see some resolution and move forward. The Scorpio Full Moon is especially fertile for you, revealing a potent culmination in a close relationship. A very meaningful commitment can be forged now, and a child may play a part in an agreement you reach. You sense the dynamics of life are shifting, and can make adjustments now.

LEO July 23 – August 22
Where circumstances have had to remain malleable and been at worst unpredictable, you start to see the upside as matters become more settled. This is especially true in regard to a living situation and you may determine around the time of the Full Moon that it is necessary to relocate in order to pursue a vocation or attain a more productive livelihood. Socially this remains an exciting period, though adjustments are featured in this sky scape, and some comings or goings may occur.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22
It’s challenging to attain success when your own desires are at odds with the opportunity on the table. Rather than back off, counter an offer or try to negotiate better terms. There is some prickly energy in the forecast, and it’s possible to get blindsided by a potentially unexpected error or intrusion. Remain adept and adaptable to make the most of what is available to you. The Full Moon in Scorpio gives you the ability to articulate what you want most- so use it!

LIBRA September 23 – October 23
Coming to terms with what you can really offer while acknowledging the truth of how much you can provide for yourself is highlighted now, and through this you can make some real progress regarding assets and earnings. Positive developments occur over the coming weeks in relation to your family or residence. A family member may offer support. Uncertainty regarding the future of a committed relationship subsides in early May, though there could still be an unexpected or tricky development in regard to this person on the horizon.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
The Full Moon in your sign speaks to how far you have come and shedding a skin (or two) to make room for new and improved circumstances. This has a regenerative quality that positively enhances your relationships with others, and it’s possible that you make a commitment that will stand the test of time over the coming weeks. A tricky situation at work or with a health matter clears up now as well, and you will have renewed energy and focus.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21
Commitments could have a pervasive influence on a budding love connection and you might find at least once or twice over the coming weeks that you are blocked or sidelined while trying to cultivate this relationship. Conflicting values could present an issue, and you may feel at odds with what this person cares about, or unable to provide what is needed in a particular circumstance. It’s getting easier with every passing day to assert your point of view, so be clear with expectations.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
Your patient and conscientious approach continues to be rewarded, even if you feel a little of your mojo has slipped, there is still much to gain in this period if you remain consistent in the pursuit of your goals. A matter connected to work could be concerning and requires flexibility on your behalf. Staying too attached to a way of doing things will slow you down in the long run. Romance can be developed now, and has long range implications. Show your heart.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
There are some growing pains connected to personal matters and perhaps within a close relationship. You still are uncovering your hidden motivations and drives for the time being and need to reflect on these. A certain pattern of life is coming to an end and this time is crucial for understanding both the what and the why of these so that you may relinquish the outmoded aspects of your psyche effectively. A long term goal comes to fruition over the Full Moon phase.

PISCES February 19 – March 20
You continue to encounter diverse people with a variety of points of view, some quite illuminating though others beguiling. Meanwhile you are in a process of defining yourself and your values. Where there had been concerning matters related to income there comes some clarity from the first days of May. Use what you have learned to be effective in creating the kind of world you want to live in. Domestic matters could require a delicate touch, easy does it.

Weekly Forecast 4/22-28

Life continues to come back to order in the post – Mercury retrograde shadow phase, and mid week is ideal for sorting out a standing matter once and for all. A solution to a challenging issue that has been concerning over the last six weeks can finally be resolved when Mercury contacts Saturn on Wednesday. There is a sort of now or never quality to this transit, and a short term compromise or sacrifice can result in a long range solution.Meanwhile, a certain inertia defuses, as the drive towards goals levels off, lowering the intensity.

With Saturn and Pluto (from the 22nd) in retrograde motion, the strategies and motivation to achievement are in a phase of contemplation and restructuring. This calls for some introspection and reevaluation over the coming months, as testing out what is working and what is not is required before major initiatives, relationships and even life structures, can continue to move forward. A change in trajectory is enhanced by the upcoming Mars retrograde, which will additionally delay developments.

Important events do culminate this week, meanwhile, especially where initiatives rooted in the events and storylines of early January are featured. Energy is stimulated as Mars aligns with the Jupiter – Pluto sextile, indicating a great deal of motivation to achieve an objective, and/or make a really significant transformation and overcome something that seems almost insurmountable. Thursday seeds the beginning of the new Mars – Pluto cycle, which lasts for 2 years, though this agenda will likely go through some transmutation and modification over the Summer months.

A surge of energy precipitates during this merger, a desire to take power or control something (perfectly acceptable if that something is yourself and your own motivations and inner drives!) is way intensified. This can also be a dank and confrontational period, where you have to face the truth, as harsh as it might be, and make some kind of change. If you can manage this, though, you experience the Phoenix quality that this aspect engenders and go through an accelerated purge – release – rebirth. The area ruled by Mars in your chart likely to experience an intensely cathartic event around this time.

maya

The Jupiter aspect (occurring Tuesday) is incredibly positive, and amplifies exuberance and productivity. Positive feelings are generated and success in endeavors, especially wrought from undertakings that were initiated in early January, is indicated. After this week, Mars will not interact with Jupiter or Pluto again until it engages from Pisces in November – December, so make the most of these compelling alignments!

Venus will enter Gemini on Tuesday, generating a diffuse ambience in which affection is stimulated by curiosity or intellectual pursuits. Gemini can be a bit of a fashion victim, and at it’s worst is superficial, though at it’s best incredibly witty and a provocative social commentator. The words you choose and you use can win over the heart of the love you might seek. Poems, notes, and cute text messages can have a big influence on how satisfying and productive your relational life will be, express yourself!

Hi Stargazers!

As always, an extended forecast with daily aspects + readings is available to subscribers on PATREON. Also check out your APRIL FORECAST for more. Don’t forget to grab my twitter @stargazerastroatlas for daily updates!

STARSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19
The next 2 weeks, and particularly the New Moon in your sign on the 15th, are urging you to claim the independence you have sought for many years. Events during this period are likely to compel you to drastic action, especially where you have not gained much ground in gaining your autonomy. It could be time to cut a few strings. Meanwhile, very positive developments impact your professional stature and you might see a promotion or raise in your income. The time, effort and dedication you have demonstrated since the beginning of the year pays off now.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20
You reach a vitalizing period for love + romance these upcoming weeks, with passion set to be very enticing. Meanwhile you have to come to terms with changes that have occurred in your life, and some of these may have slipped in under the radar, so when you look around you may see you are in a very different place than you had been 3 or 9 months ago, much to your own surprise. Your 6th sense remains strong and while you have nearly come to master this realm, some interesting (?) material could rise to the surface between the 15th-18th.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20
You’ll be be more at ease when Mercury turns direct on the 15th, just in time for some really exciting social encounters. Love could also be on the cards for you, though it’s far more likely to be a secret liaison than an out in the open affair of heart. Regardless of the outcome, this one has a way of just reaching right in and taking hold of your most sensitive bits and pieces. Someone has your attention. What happens when you let your guard down, Gem? A tough financial dynamic de-escalates, you have overcome a challenge since January and can relax.

CANCER June 21 – July 22
While no significant changes in the overall atmosphere these upcoming weeks, there is escalation, especially where your long range goals are in frame. Look to events from the 15th – 18th to substantially alter the course you’ve been on, especially if that course has felt like you have been running around in circles – a breakthrough is imminent. Socially this is a delectable period, as you can meet someone with real potential through friends or share your favorite activities with partner. A commitment could go through a period of reassessment nonetheless.

LEO July 23 – August 22
The cyclical nature of your social rotations comes to closure and though you may have hoped to begin to find some time for yourself, there are too many enticing offers in regard to work and your professional goals to miss out on if you do. This is a great and one of a kind period in which you can really flourish in a creative field. A new frontier opens mid month and you can get back on course with an endeavor that has been held up. Misinterpretations clear up and the road opens.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22
This stands to be a remarkably romantic period for you, and even if the one who holds your heart is at some distance, a strong link exists between you that will be undeniable. An enticing ambience opens you up to the possibilities and you can see how far you have come in a relationship that may have been getting serious since the beginning of the year. Misgivings or misunderstandings that prevailed over the last few weeks are reconciled, and from mid month you are prepared to make a commitment financially, intimately or both.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23
The twists and turns in regard to making a commitment in a relationship start to rectify and having gone the gauntlet, perhaps for someone you only recently connected, you may find mid month or the days that follow the appropriate time to seal the deal. Some fireworks are attached to this merger, and while this person may have fallen out of nowhere into your life, if there is a kismet feeling present guiding you to move forward, then go for it. Domestic shifts seem to be part of parcel here, and changing tides in your personal life reflect a transformation.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
This is a bountiful period for you especially in matters of the heart, and the more you can open up to someone the more you receive. Those immersed in the realm of fantasy may miss out on a brilliant opportunity, so while illusion may be enticing, there is an opening here that enables you to bring a dream into reality. Mid month is great for setting a personal trajectory, and work related issues finally begin to dissipate. Being relieved of some of the busy-ness of the prior month frees you to work on your health and wellness, which may have suffered due to stress.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21
You get your groove back in a major way mid month and moving forward, exciting although unanticipated events shroud your love life in provocative overtones. A personal creative project can also get on it’s feet now. Financial challenges you have faced up to since the beginning of the year begin to diminish, and this can be a lucrative cycle for you, especially thorough your job or assignments that come up for you. Use the next 2 weeks to define yourself. The 15th – 18th is especially potent for personal breakthrough.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
Having dug deep to find the source of a concerning matter, you have managed to extract several long forgotten issues that required some TLC to resolve. You’ll find from mid month these matters get back on track and a domestic or personal storyline advances swiftly, maybe even shift into completely unexpected territory. Romantic vibes are super enticing these weeks, and expressing your earthy, more sensual nature meets up with very positive support, maybe in the form of a suitable lover.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
False starts have been pervasive the last several weeks, but clarity is soon to return. A super charge to your central nervous system mid month triggers an awakening of sorts, and you can express yourself in ways you had not foreseen. An innovative urge or flash of genius gets you back on track swiftly. You still seem to be nestled into the home or the closeness of those in your most personal life. These contacts offer real fulfillment and satisfaction, or you may prefer solitude and the company of your own sweet self.

PISCES February 19 – March 20
Getting a grip on financials has been a tricky matter these last few weeks, but you make substantial progress shortly and might even find the upside in a negotiation that has been evasive. Your social life is delightful and a party or event can turn up a really promising romantic prospect if your heart is open for it. You can afford to take this one nice and slow, the flow right now is measured and steady. Enjoy the subtle cues and gentle feelings as they emerge. Creativity is also enhanced for artists or musicians.

Weekly Scopes 4/1-7

FRONT AND CENTER: GETTING SERIOUS WITH SATURN

There is some discontent in the atmosphere this week, as stressful aspects from Mercury in Aries to Mars conjunct Saturn in Capricorn force solidification of objectives while reorienting the methods being used to attain them. Provocation is likely, particularly from Wednesday to Thursday. April 1st features the mid – retrograde conjunction of Sun and Mercury, suggesting a turning point in matters that have weathered turbulence over the prior weeks. Something comes to the surface that shifts the perspective, and a significant conversation or realization enables individuals to start to get their house in order, especially where you may have experienced a lack of continuity since earlier in March.

Mercury and Saturn face off again on Thursday, and a serious matter demands to be contended with. There’s a need to buckle down to create the outcome in a long range scenario that has been endemically challenging. Necessity presides largely over both thought process and activities this month, though at it’s best a solution can be found by acknowledging the current limitations you may be experiencing and making the required concessions. In this matter, the solution emerges where you are able to let a sense of restriction guide you patiently towards a resolution that allows you to overcome it. Do the work required now, and in about 3 weeks you will reach a milestone that enables a significant move forward and into a period of greater abundance and flexibility.

Mars and Saturn make a once in 29 years conjunction from Capricorn on Monday, (the last one occurred in March of 1990,) making this an optimal time to define goals and begin an enterprise or endeavor that will structure your long range activities for the coming 2 years. There is a frustration initially as Saturn blocks Mars’s energy, a reminder that a task is at hand that requires attention. From Capricorn, there is a gritty sense of determination present, endurance and tenacity will preside over action in this cycle. Austerity measures may also be required, but what you manage to overcome now creates security that lasts forever.

Venus combines harmoniously to Saturn next Saturday, and commitments can be considered, though waiting until Mercury is direct on the 15th to sign the dotted line is still advised. Financial matters will likely stabilize as an equilibrium is achieved through balancing sensual and material desires with practical considerations. Initiations made at the end of last year come to fruition, indicating where dedication and perseverance to an outcome is paying off and beginning to demonstrate the long range potential.

STARSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19
You can choose to Battle Royale with your supervisors or instead take the highroad and wait for better auspices mid month. You do get some positive activations professionally this week, and can set course for a positive outcome over the coming months (think from now – September). A promotion could await you where you put in the work required, and an indication next Saturday will stimulate a positive financial trajectory attached to this. Defining the goal and outcome of what you seek is critical right now to assure success in the future.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20
The past still seems to be playing a larger than life role for you, with resolutions and release possible this week if you confront inconvenient truths. A life path is being revealed to you simultaneously and you might start to get a bit more serious about turning an ideal into something real. It may take till September to root down, but pay real attention to the clues and cues that precipitate this week. Saturday is especially revealing.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20
Could be a dicey week for Gemini, as your ruling planet makes contentious alignments and you are forced to live up to obligations. Shared financial responsibilities may be at the center of this, though any serious commitment you have to another person likely makes you feel incredibly restricted in the attainment of your personal interests right now. A secret rendezvous could assist you in tapping more pleasurable vibrations, look to next weekend for a sweet surprise.

CANCER June 21 – July 22
Professional quagmires continue to demand your attention, meanwhile you may be having problems getting the spouse or business partner on board. While you can’t necessarily avoid confrontations, you can choose how you react to them and since more has yet to come to light between now and mid month, agreeing to disagree, for now at least, can bring equilibrium to an otherwise testing situation. Sharing a pleasurable social interlude next weekend brings peace.

LEO July 23 – August 22
You begin to feel a professional upswing, though work pressure and mounting responsibilities will be required to make the most of favorable opportunities available over the coming weeks. Taking care of your body in order to elevate your productivity are required as you climb the ladder of success. Friends provide a distraction, especially if someone you haven’t heard from in a while arrives on the scene unexpectedly. Try to balance business and pleasure.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22
Prickly financial issues continue to mount, especially where you might rely on someone else for funds and they aren’t delivering. This has a dampening effect on your creative and romantic expression, and you may feel undermined or confused. Under the auspices of Venus in Taurus, pleasurable vibes are stimulated, suggesting you do have favorable outcomes to look forward to, though they may not come to fruition immediately. Make plans next weekend and give yourself something to look forward to.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23
Issues with family members and household continue to have a challenging influence in regard to a relationship you would like to get off the ground. A few more important discussions and decisions will enable you to make some progress this week, so hold out for what you want and don’t back down. A momentous shift is occurring in your personal life and resolve is required to make it. These changes enhance intimacy in the very near future. Hang in there.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
Problematic circumstances or individuals in your work life continue to be a source of potential discord this week. If you feel the need to air your grievances, embrace a productive tone as opposed to a confrontational one. Your words have incredible influence over others right now, so choose and use them conscientiously. The same advice bears significance on your partnership now, a meaningful conversation can set the stage for a connection to flourish next weekend.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21
It’s time to get serious about a financial matter this week, as several turning points up ahead will show the why, though not necessarily the how. If you have been contending with austerity, and feel defeated, realign with your values and remember that conditions are of a temporal nature and will inevitably shift. A decision or strategic endeavor requires patience and grit, and a day at a time attitude should be adapted. A bonus or promotion at work could turn up next week.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
Making peace with the past, as well as though you are closest to in the present, is a prominent feature this week, though you are having a very personal breakthrough at the same time. Mars linking up to Saturn in your sign brings out your fighting spirit, and anyone caught unawares of your intentions or the immeasurable drive you possess to achieve them could be in for a bit of shock. Super enticing romantic vibrations are also taking hold, making this an ideal period for nurturing a promising love connection.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
While timelines feel a bit de-accelerated right now, a big and progressive push to release negative conditioning is stimulated this week, and you need to listen long and hard to the voice deep within by taking time out to hear yourself think. If you find an undermining internal voice, look beneath it and you’ll likely find a wounded inner child. Cultivate a relationship with this and take your healing seriously. Your personal life is enhanced next weekend. Find peace within.

PISCES February 19 – March 20
The financial picture may be clearing, though you might not adore what’s being revealed. Coming to terms with what is, as opposed to what is not or what could be, will give you momentum forward and out of the quagmire. Venus is providing pleasurable social vibrations all month and you might turn up a promising love connection in the most casual routines of your day to day. Also a favorable time to take a class, or enjoy art and music recreationally or through a creative project.

April Horoscope

Taurus energy begins to stabilize an otherwise volatile atmosphere, as manifestation of the creative inspiration that emerged in Aries season starts to take root. It will take Mercury a few more weeks to catch up. Currently in retrograde (through the 15th) communication takes a few more hits (especially during the first week) before a decision can be made and the next agenda undertaken. A significant conversation that takes place on the 1st of the month sets the tone – signaling a way out of the muddle.

Venus in Taurus is very much at home, finding herself in a far more supportive atmosphere, connecting harmoniously to Mars, Neptune, Saturn and Pluto. All these connections enhance the visionary (Neptune) and business minded (Capricorn) enabling powerful developments in both love and commerce. An opposition to Jupiter mid month has a positive influence on commercial and romantic affairs, generating good will and even prosperity, though this easy going influence can make people both over indulgent and generous with resources they do not actually have available. Culminations in partnerships or financial objectives set into motion last November occur now, with Scorpio and Taurus folks particularly feeling really strong love mojo.

The last 2 weeks of the month feature the North Node transiting the degree of the January Leo eclipse. Expect reverberations or advancements of the storylines that were stimulated around that period. Endings and beginnings are amplified. Venus squares the Nodal Axis from Taurus on the 10th arousing a nostalgic mood about a life that is now behind you, and who or what you may have left behind, that is rather potent. Equally, excitement for the future you are creating, (most likely as a result of that release) is palpable, too. Some mix of both contributes to a bittersweet, but exciting atmosphere.

Uranus had a role at Eclipse time (supporting from Aries,) and continues to have significance in April. The 15th and 18th are highlighted as a New Moon in Aries is conjunct, then a few days later Sun and Uranus convene for one last time (for 80 years!) in Aries. The area in which you have sought to innovate and demonstrate personal authenticity or expression finally gets one last turbo charge into the future. At it’s worst Uranus can be an abrasive influence, and there is a potential that this influence comes into play during the mid month. Otherwise, anticipate a breakthrough that leads to independence and authentically living on your own terms. More news comes in next month – look to May 13th for the final pieces of the puzzle to fall into place.

Saturn retrograde from the 17th (through September 6th,) tests the strength of the firmament and foundations put into place since the beginning of the year. It’s less of a period in which you can continue to develop long range goals, but rather to explore how much progress you have made on your personal Saturn in Capricorn agenda and determine (over the next few months) the best strategy to employ to get the desired results where you see weaknesses in the system.

STARSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19
Professional plans could stall early in the early part of the month, you’ll have better auspices when Mercury is direct from mid April. Venus and Mars collude harmoniously opening the door to sweet success and a prestigious new role with favorable financial incentives on offer between the 7th and the 11th. You’ll seal the deal by the New Moon next month. A commitment made stands the test of time. From mid month you hit a great stride, Mercury direct and a New Moon in your sign encourage an atmosphere for exciting beginnings and new frontiers. A breakthrough you have sought for years is imminent, so go for what you really desire, especially if allows you the independence you genuinely desire. The 24th and 26th see powerful and exciting professional developments. These will likely come undone or require reworking (sorry! Mars is about to go retrograde!) but will signal very auspicious seeds being planted for Fall harvest.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20
A deadly serious mood regarding an educational or media pursuit prevails at the beginning of the month. If you are taking exams or applying for international citizenship this likely takes up a lot of your headspace for the moment. Venus in your sign meanwhile has come to bestow pleasure and peace, maybe even a touch of luck in regard to finances. The 7th, 11th, 12th, and 14th are all exceptional for reaching goals of a relational nature or to secure assets or even beautiful objects that will collect in value. The Full Moon on the 30th is perfect for making a long term commitment. If you do get engaged, make sure you set a wedding date for next year, so you are well past the Venus retro phase this Fall, OK? Passion and extravagance are featured on the 17th, meanwhile, and you can go all the way, or get out of control. Decadence seems on order, something is worth celebrating and a partner stokes the flames. A tuning point on the 10th signals a wind change in your life direction, take heed.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20
You are in a quiet and reflexive place this month, sensitivity and intuitive awareness are particularly strong, and you may seek to withdraw in order to protect your highly subjective state. This could also be a very creative period, as your imagination runs strong. The 11th – 17th is an especially fertile period and you might be using this time to get closer to your lover, taking time to be together privately and one on one will be healing and therapeutic. The 26th is transformational, you can take things to a whole new level of depth and intimacy. Finances can also be impacted, and you might sign onto a deal with a bank or investment firm. A social vibe provides a strong undercurrent and time with friends will remain a fun prospect. The New Moon on the 26th and events on the 18th represent very exciting developments with a new group of friends or an organization. Associates revitalize you.

CANCER June 21 – July 22
The career trajectory straightens out after mid month, and the New Moon on the 16th opens a very exciting new door for you. Keep your schedule free, as it’s likely a completely unanticipated opportunity comes up over the following days and you want to be ready to jump on it. You’ll likely be very distracted by all the strong influences coming from your partner(s). Mars connects with Saturn and Pluto, setting the stage for some intense encounters. The entire month is like one huge punctuation mark followed by another, and while some of these will be a bit cathartic and even intense, if you stay open to it, you could be in the midst of building one of the most important relationships you’ve ever known. The planets involved imply that this might be a serious professional partnership, either way, it’s a vitalizing and long lasting connection, get present for it. The 14th is going to be memorable as a commitment will transform your life at this time.

LEO July 23 – August 22
A hard working phase continues, as your abilities and contribution earn you a stellar reputation among your colleagues and peers. This is most evident around the 10th – 11th, although it looks as though you have to make a personal adjustment to really make the most of an opportunity. Mercury retrograde slows progress in plans connected to education and travel. Expect delays. The New Moon on the 16th can set things to rights as an unexpected turn of events opens doors. An inventive solution that challenges convention sets the course. Expansive and regenerative energy in your domestic sphere on the 14th brings another opportunity to transform your home for the better. This could facilitate remodeling or a work from home business could be showing signs of success and prosperity. The Full Moon on the 30th augments this and will stabilize any matters related to home or personal improvement, or within the relational dynamics of your family.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22
Financial matters could be tricky this month as Mercury retrograde demands a reassessment of outside income streams or a debt resurfaces. The 4th and 5th likely prove the most challenging of the cycle as outgoing expense is higher than incoming making a reality check in order. From mid month, around the New Moon on the 16th, things get back into order. Meanwhile, Venus and Mars harmonize in the most brilliant way for you and travel with your mate or spouse could be particularly romantic and exciting on the 10th. The 7th, 12th, 14th, 17th and 26th are also incredible and support your efforts to develop or renew a love connection. A shift of focus to professional matter from the 25th will see your star rising in your chosen career. You’ll have a golden touch and be able to make a great impression on those who matter most and can help you up the ladder of success.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23
A New Moon on the 16th clarifies the direction of a partnership, Mercury resumes direct motion simultaneously and an alliance can take off quite suddenly and even unexpectedly now. A lovely collaboration between Venus and Mars indicates a lot is going on behind the scenes, and especially if a love relationship has been getting more serious, there could be a desire to live together or at least to become more intimate in this phase. The 11th is especially romantic and you may wish to confide your heart felt feelings. This is a great time for some alone time with someone you are getting close to. Love has highly transformational over tones, especially around the 17th. From the 25th the focus turns back to the outer world, and you can promote effectively, travel or educate over the coming month. A financial culmination has long term implications for you on the 29th. This could extend to a home sale or purchase. What you sign off on now will stand the test of time.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
A work situation gets back on track over the New Moon on the 16th. If you had been waiting to hear about a promotion, new role or title, you could be caught off guard how quickly things come together after weeks of delays. This will come as a relief and leave you free to enjoy a very exciting month for love and romance. The whole month is divine as you find yourself getting closer to someone who shares so many of your interests. You might make a long term commitment on the 7th, just in time – the 11th is one of the most passionate days of the year! The 12th, 14th and 17th are also great for really special occasions, and single Scorpio could meet someone with real partnership potential even just in the ordinary course of day to day life. If you’ve been negotiating or working on a business enterprise, this same energy is beneficial, as it generates harmony with your partners. Killer deals get made on the 24th and 26th. You don’t have to strong arm anyone, just be crystal clear about what you want and get them to meet you half way.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21
There is a great deal of energy and movement in regard to work and earnings at this time. There will be good opportunities, matched with a desire to make the most of them and especially around the 10th you can cash in on lucrative assignments or even a promotion. A reality check about finances early in the month stimulates awareness that changes need to be made here, and the 7th, 14th, 17th, 24th, and 26th are all very positive if you are seeking upgrades or more income. Mercury completes it’s retrograde circuit mid month, and the mischievous and indecisive energy surrounding your romantic relationship or a certain creative project can clear up now. The New Moon on the 16th collaborates with unpredictable Uranus, so what takes flight now does so under the most unanticipated circumstances. The 18th is equally, um, exciting? Uranus can be nerve racking too, just leave space for the unexpected and be ready for sudden changes. Venus in your arena of partnership from the 25th bodes well for relationships you are ready to take to the next level. Reflect on this over the Full Moon of the 30th.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
You have incredible auspices at this time to seize upon your personal power. There are defining moments that punctuate the entire month, suggesting you could come on very strong in this period. A fortunately timed transit from the gracious and supportive beam of Venus in Taurus stimulates your romantic and sensual appetites, easing you out a bit. Very alluring contacts on the 11th, 12th, 14th and 17th reveal potent opportunities for cultivating or renewing a deeply erotic, sexual relationship. You see continued progress within a partnership dynamic that featured in early January. You have the strength and conviction to rise to the challenges of your goals and the 2nd, 14th, 24th, 26th and 29th are all spectacular for pushing your agenda and reaching for successful outcomes. You are dynamic this month, a force to be reckoned with, although a domestic matter could go sideways or a move delayed. An unexpected or unanticipated solution arises during the New Moon phase on the 16th, or otherwise on the 18th. Be ready to jump as you could be changing the location of your base of operations very swiftly now.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
There is a very withdrawn and introverted quality this month. You are examining dimensions of your most private and personal life now, and likely seek some solitude and peace. Important matters from the past, even your family or history can be resolved now and the 7th, 11th, 17th and 26th reveal much via dreams and intuition. You may be releasing something very personal around the 10th, or a sense of nostalgia for the past or something you recently gave up could stir you quite deeply. A sense of personal and professional satisfaction arises on the 14th. An inspiration stimulates a creative business idea. The Full Moon on the 30th suggests enduring success in a professional enterprise and may even connect back to a career venture you began in 2015. This long range trajectory and the hard work of the prior years may pay off for you now. The New Moon and Mercury direct from the 16th allows you to move forward with a personal project. A road block on the 25th will require an adjustment or refinement to your thinking.

PISCES February 19 – March 20
There is pleasure right at your fingertips this month, as a vibrant social schedule offers enticements and delights galore. Around the 11th, a new love relationship can be stimulated while participating in an activity with friends. The 12th, 14th, 17th and 24th are all dates in which you can infuse your partnership with passion and even ecstasy, especially if you let your imagination run wild with your loved one. Events mid month, triggered by an Aries New Moon on the 16th indicate vital new sources of revenue could be coming through for you. Again where you are most inventive and apply your genius imagination (trust that inner vision!) you can really generate a lucrative income for yourself. Mercury direct from this point will make it easier to unravel any issues you have been having and get sorted on matters that may have eluded you over the prior month. A group or organization you work with or supervise could see some substantial growth on the 26th. Look out for a power struggle though, there could be trouble brewing in the ranks. The stumbling block that you encounter on the 2nd is merely there to sharpen your vision. A dream to teach, publish or travel is rekindled on the 30th. If you make a long term plan now you will likely see your wish delivered in December.

Weekly Scopes 3/25-31

NEW PERSPECTIVES
A breakthrough is imminent, though the way through, and eventually up, could prove somewhat challenging over the coming weeks as turbulent forces culminate. On the positive side, these aspects generate the kind of friction that compels taking action. Where situations have become static and an attitude towards stasis complacent, this can be a positive thing in that these energies bring about progress of some measure. With the unyielding energies of Saturn, Uranus and Pluto dominating the forecast, this progress likely comes at some kind of cost. The disparate elements that comprise the totality of your existence are likely incongruous at best right now, and in trying to force a proverbial circle into a square, something gets lost in the outcome. Choose your battles carefully and/or allow the Mercury retrograde cycle to run it’s course before determining a course of action.

Attempting to make a crucial choice right now would likely be premature. By mid April, not only will some of friction have lifted from the atmosphere, but information will likely have come to light that shifts the perspective on things considerably. It’s not until the first week of May that Mercury catches up and enables the articulation of the events that are occurring now. It is likely it will take until that period to make sense of or find an orientation for activities that put into process the realignment taking place over the next two weeks. For now maintaining an open perspective while remaining aligned with your truth is crucial.

The Full Moon at 10’ Libra next weekend is a strong punctuation mark in the rather complex storylines developing. With Aries Sun/Libra Moon challenged by Mars and Saturn in Capricorn there is a sense of dramatic urgency at odds with the currently pervasive themes of discipline and conscientiousness. (Pluto is fortuitously left out of the equation.) These aspects arouse a strange hybrid of energies, perhaps stimulating a compelling desire to make a significant move towards a long range goal or change trajectory if something isn’t working out as planned.

Again, try to proceed with a degree of caution, especially with retrograde Mercury in tight alignment (conjunct Sun), suggesting that the highly confrontational nature of this Lunation amplifyies an even stronger likelihood of making regrettable comments or choices. Mercury returns to this position on April 27th, when more cogent signals prevail, empowering more competent decision making.

 

Stargazer Weekly Forecast 3/11 – 3/17

The ambience intensifies this week as Mars enters Capricorn and Sun moves into Aries (Happy Equinox!) Cardinal energy stirs up incentive and urges striking out towards new frontiers. These two very Yang energies confront one another at the end of the week, tapping into an already overly sensitized 2nd Quarter Moon in Cancer. The results of undertakings or initiatives put into motion late July of last year come into view. It might be time to modify the action plan if things aren’t going the way you would have sought for them to. (You have from now until the Sun – Mars opposition, which takes place in the middle of the Mars retrograde period this year on July 27th, to make modifications.)

Mercury also does it’s about face this week from 16’ Aries. Through April 15th there is a chance to step back, review and recalibrate perspective in what has been so far a very fast paced year. As mentioned in the monthly horoscopes, this particular retrograde has a heavy Saturn flavor to it, and much of what is getting worked out in this period is connected to confronting an obstacle or impediment which only through it’s resolution can progress be made. There can be frustrating moments of limitation attached to this process, but these are really meant to stimulate awareness of where and what needs working on. The end of April holds many opportunities in store if you can tackle the issues on hand.

The end of the week is pretty prickly as Venus squares Pluto, forcing a relationship (for the sake of love or money) to transform or else. (!!!) This can be a stormy influence to contend with and can bring up patterns of jealousy or possessiveness in a relationship that is triggering feelings of insecurity rather than love. It’s time to confront some inner demons and if you can maintain some objectivity, there is a potential for discovery, metamorphosis and healing to occur. This is also the appropriate time to evaluate progress in the objectives established during the first week of January, as these are reaching critical mass now.

The 2nd Quarter Moon that follows on Saturday is no peach either: from Cancer lady Luna opposes intense and obstinate forces via Mars + Saturn in Capricorn while squaring the Sun in Aries. This one looks really pivotal, though with Mercury out of sorts it’s not going to be easy to draw a conclusion about anything too critical. Sit with yourself and relinquish stagnant energies that have been repressed within. Any aggravation you might experience at this juncture is an indication that these urgently seek release.

2wands

Sun enters Aries on the 20th at 12:15p EST, signaling the beginning of the new astrological calendar and opening the energetic field to fresh influences and perspectives. For the next 10 days, the Sun transits the first Decan of Aries, stimulating a double Mars influence connected to the Tarot symbolism of 2 of Wands. Ziegler* offers the indication: “Pay attention to centering. If you’re in contact with your center, you are certain to master the situation. Trust your energy. Don’t go for any false compromises!… Now visualize the situation at hand. See yourself dealing with it while remaining centered.”

STARSCOPES:

april2-copy ARIES March 20 – April 19
You come back into your own this week as Sun joins up Mercury and Venus in your sign. Less easy to deal with is that willy-nilly Mercury retrograde rascal stirring up mischief in your sign. There may be more than one occasion this week you’ll likely want to tell people what is what and effectively put them in their place. Choose to split the difference instead. Though it’s not your style, it takes you further in the long run and with Mars starting a long transit of your arena of life direction, you need to be in this for the duration – pacing yourself is crucial for success.

may2-copy TAURUS April 20 – May 20
You are likely preoccupied with very subjective matters and feeling some really intense peaks of intuition. Tuesday is likely one such moment for you, tapping you into the essence of your inner drives and desires. Friday would be a no-no for first dates or really meaningful exchanges. There is a lot of raw emotion out there you might prefer to steer clear of. Don’t avoid a conflict if it arises, just be aware that your faculties are compromised and trying to make a sensible case for your perspective is just not likely to come off as clearly as you might want.

june2-copy GEMINI May 21 – June 20
While Mercury retrograde season is never easy on you Gem, this one does have the potential to bring back forgotten and long lost friends into your midst. Someone with too many strings attached shows their hand next Friday, and it could be take it or leave it. There is likely to be sexual and financial intensity arising over the coming weeks, so you might want to get your ducks in a row or have a back up plan ready, especially if you have outstanding debts or obligations of an intimate nature. Next weekend reveals what’s in store.

july2-copy CANCER June 21 – July 22
Your star is rising, but you also seem to reconsidering the trajectory it’s traveling, and perhaps need to realign with some core values before you make a substantive move forward. A lot of pressure is coming in from your partnership sector and especially next weekend you are seeing how influential one or a few certain people have become and how that could be affecting your inner compass. While this partnership holds the potential to transform your life, you have to hold the reigns, if only periodically and steer your chariot.

sep2-copy LEO July 23 – August 22
Sun in Aries gives you all the mojo, though Mercury retrograde will have the effect of making you ask where and what you want to steer all that energy. Work matters remain a concern and will stand to modify your arrangements considerably over the coming weeks if not months. This is a good time to advance productivity, though you want to take a slow and steady effort if you are going to maximize your potential in the long run. Shifting dynamics at the end of the week reveal changes you seek to make.

oct2-copy VIRGO August 23 – September 22
With some of the more personal/relation dynamics being settled for you, Virgo begins a season of catharsis and renewal. Don’t get too bemused if things feel a bit sideways and your normally reserved self starts connecting with a more elemental – sensational – emotional aspects of your psyche. You may have not claimed your full value somewhere, or with someone, and this is a period of recalibrating your estimation of your self worth in order to establish the trust you need to proceed. Financial and intimate relationships factor.

oct2-copy LIBRA September 23 – October 23
The relational space just keeps heating up and matched Libras have a lot going for them these weeks ahead with positive vibes to connect and cultivate bonds with a significant someone who really seems to get you. Love juju gets a bit intense towards the end of the week, and especially in a new relationship, try to reserve judgement if someone doesn’t come through for you in precisely the way you would have expected. Insecurities can arise, likely connected to your childhood. The current influences enable you to observe these and extract them as required.

nov2-copy SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
It’s a rather gestational period for you Scorpio and while signals that you are in a period of transformation are abundant, you likely don’t realize the how or why of it all just yet. You may be reversing even recent decisions, especially where the establishment of daily routines haven’t really kicked in yet. Better choices can be made after you review how well aligned your goals are with what you are doing to make them real. Good intentions are well enough, but it’s time to address what you are doing on a habitual level and start to engage more productive strategies.

dec2-copy SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21
Mars leaves your sign this weekend, moving into Capricorn where you will ground and attempt to materialize your recently determined upon inspirations. Sun in Aries adds to the momentum building in the area of your chart linked to pleasure and creativity, although Mercury retrograde could cause a bit of a short circuit over the coming weeks while you figure out how to get it all to come together. Inspiration could peak on Tuesday. Financial matters that require fortitude to get through will be revealed at the end of the week into Saturday.

jan2-copy CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
With Mars in your sign from Saturday you are super activated to get going on the big goals you set for yourself earlier this year. Simultaneously there is a rooting in influence, and while your foundations might seem shaky at best (courtesy of Mercury retrograde) you are coming to terms with what you desire in your ideal living arrangements and considering if those at close distance are serving those needs or providing a distraction. A trigger point next Friday sends signals as to where there is significant room for improvement.

feb2-copy AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Daily life is set to become even more exciting this week, though you might be taking a walk down memory lane and reconnecting with familiar but forgotten friends as the Mercury retrograde cycle unspools over the coming weeks. Mars in Capricorn lends some agitation to your inner space, suggesting it’s time for a mental/spiritual health check in. Expect intuition to be on high, though you won’t know where or precisely how these perceptions are reaching you (dreams, de ja vous and ESP experiences are part and parcel). These signal you to accept and release the past.

march2-copy PISCES February 19 – March 20
Energy continues to percolate in your arena of self worth and values, making this a fortuitous time to appraise your personal assets both substantive and intangible. The upcoming Mercury retrograde phase triggers some reassessment of these matters and contributes to a perceptible delay in gratification. Defining your goals and the networks in which you participate and how well these augment your true aspirations seems to be a critical part of this process. Socially this is a vibrant period, with some rather intense people entering your orbit. At least one or two of these people can show you the way through an otherwise tricky obstacle course regarding personal finance and how to make and keep your money.
