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.

march2-copy   PISCES February 19 – March 20
Venus from Scorpio starting Tuesday amps up your charisma and attracts favorable circumstances over the coming weeks, setting up a nice conclusion to what has been a very wonky year otherwise. There is a lot of movement for you professionally, and between now and mid January, perhaps the opportunity to move a few rungs up your chosen ladder of success. There could be a brief loss of momentum next month during Mercury retrograde, though this will be fitting since it’s holiday time and getting anything nailed down would prove difficult by default. Events next Saturday prove your conviction to do things in your own unique way was worth it, even if you may have alienated less inspired counterparts along the way. Hard work pays off now.

Weekly Forecast 10/29 – 11/4

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

STARSCOPES 10/29 – 11/4

ARIES March 20 – April 19
Etherial and mysterious feelings prevail over the Halloween festivities. This is a perfect energy for conducting a spiritual – ritual ceremony to celebrate where you have been and release energy from the past no longer serving you. You goals for the future challenge you to do this in order to move forward. From Wednesday you feel renewal as the Moon transits your sign. Venus enhances your closest connections at the beginning of the weekend, with a surprising turn of events on Saturday. The ambience is equally positive for making a long term commitment, though events surrounding doing so will be highly unpredictable. Intuition could turn up a creative idea that enhances earnings or a lucrative project.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20
The Full Moon in your sign next Saturday represents one of the more significant turning points in the year for you. A gentle vibration from Neptune suggests that you make the most of an opportunity for creative engagement with friends. Aesthetic appreciation is enhanced in this vitalizing period. Between now and then it’s likely a serious financial appraisal is taking place. Sensitivity surrounding a cherished dream is stimulated by a shortfall of the resources required to make it come true. You are trying to rewrite the rules with your tribe, peer group or an organization, but an outstanding commitment to someone who holds the purse strings seems to be opposed. Figure it out Mr/s T!

GEMINI May 21 – June 20
It’s a tricky week for your relationship or professional goals, as these seem to be at odds with another and a partner unsupportive of what you are attempting to accomplish. You can reach a loving and mutual agreement by the weekend if you keep your cool and the vibe nice + sweet. Saturday features an electrical alinement that could bring someone new into the picture, or a sudden development may arise in an existing relationship. Check into the social scene if you are looking for someone new. You’ll equally feel introspective, and the Full Moon on a good time to reflect on what you need to surrender. Intuition can lead you to your next professional milestone.

CANCER June 21 – July 22
A challenge regarding planning for a long range goal stems from a health matter or your work load this week. Sensitivity is triggered that connects to a feeling of self worth or lack thereof. It makes for a touchy week. The beginning of the weekend shifts the tone considerably. Domestic and professional matters take center stage and a stunning new beginning is afoot. An exciting and unexpected development transpires that will remind you of some of the more dynamic pivot points over the last year. If you have been waiting to hear about a promotion, things could swiftly come together now. Friendships are also enhanced and there are marvelous opportunities to connect on Friday night. A creative atmosphere will enhance your social interactions beautifully.

LEO July 23 – August 22
You probe your inner world at the onset of the week. Transformation is contemplated and you feel strong forces of regeneration and the potential of spiritual awakening. Monday is especially potent. A conversation or realization on Tuesday signals a turning point. You are adjusting to the significant influences that were triggered during the Leo eclipse in August. Modification is occurring in your self awareness that holds implications for your closest partnership. Fun and surprises rule from Friday – Saturday. Social opportunities could be exciting, you’ll meet all kinds of interesting people. A Full Moon on Saturday represents the culmination of a professional goal. Something you have secretly cherished comes to fruition.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22
Issues connected to your heritage, home or family continue to play a debilitating role within the formation of the relationship you seek. Tuesday and Thursday offer poignant moments in which you discover how deeply embedded attitudes or circumstances are preventing you from the formation of the more unconventional partnership you would seek to establish. This reflects events of early January and late April. The Full Moon on Saturday sees you raising the sails. You can reconcile a difficult romantic scenario by planning something off the beaten path with your partner. Finances are erratic, but a boost can help you with a domestic matter on Friday.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23
Relational matters hit a real high note this week, from Thursday through Saturday a lot of energy and excitement could be building in a key relationship, with a genuine breakthrough on tap. You may notice themes from the Full Moon a month ago come up again, though these challenges have been in play for about a year, if not longer. Where previously you had not been able to make a lasting decision, with Venus on board in your sign, you feel more connected to your heart, making now the perfect time to choose deeper commitment or lasting liberation. You’ve likely spent the year trying to get a better work/life balance in order, fresh impulses to make an important decision regarding these will be present this week.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
The financial pressure you’ve been dealing with will come to closure soon, but there may be a very testing period this week that has implications in your love life. This brings up challenges you experienced in early January as well as late April, with a final opportunity this week to overcome a very sensitive issue. You may feel like you aren’t good enough for someone because you don’t offer material security, though at it’s best this is a chance to check in with how you really feel about yourself and examine your values. With Venus cruising into your sign next week, you stand a good chance of making a stunning connection very soon. A sudden matter behind the scenes at work could change things swiftly over the weekend. Be prepared for an unexpected shift to occur.

SAGITTARIUS November 22 – December 21
As far as you’ve come in the last two years, there’s still a bit of a learning curve this week to navigate as you start your graduation proceedings as a Saturn Survivor. There remains a sensitivity in regard to your home, upbringing or personal life that still requires a delicate touch and you may be bullying yourself here for experiencing these. If this is the case, you need to ease up on yourself a bit and let a situation play itself out. A lot is going on in your mystery and secrets realm so you’ve got quite a bit going on behind the scenes. Intuition is strong and this can make you especially vulnerable around negative people, so avoid emotional parasites at all cost! A health + productivity matter is enhanced by a positive home environment. You get indications during the Full Moon Saturday.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
The thought process might lean a bit to the pessimistic side this week, while you seek to find new and even unconventional ways to express your ideas, your inner critic seems to lurk in the shadows, waiting to cut you down. You can use feelings (especially the icky ones) that emerge this week to gain some understanding about this – the thoughts you feed, especially the murky ones that are left over criticism from your childhood, are utterly sabotaging your mental well being. Watch out for negative self talk. Don’t try to shut it out, work on it instead. Professionally you could gain enormously this weekend, though in the way you least expect. A romantically supercharged Full Moon Friday night has your heart racing.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Professionally your still amping up through some significant achievements, and much is in store until the end of the year. Meanwhile, you get some important signals on Tuesday that gears are shifting in your partnership dynamics and it’s possible a relationship you began in August (or ended, in some cases) is at a turning point. In the case you broke up, you may just be integrating that ending. Towards the weekend exciting social vibes are present, and you may be celebrating a new home or addition. The Full Moon late Friday night points to a very positive culmination in your personal life. While finances are testy this week otherwise, it’s possible a coup is in place that augments your ability to make improvements you have sought for or you are beginning to see profitability from a home based enterprise.

PISCES February 19 – March 20
The week starts off on a good note for you with the moon transiting your sign through early Wednesday. Tuesday is largely good for making your case, especially in an academic setting, through international contacts or in regard to a project that could reach a large audience. Professionally the pressure is unyielding, and an issue that has flashback elements connected to early January and late April is revisited. This thing just rubs you in all kinds of wrong ways, triggering feelings of self worth, or lack there of, especially where you are forced to defend your tendencies toward renegade or alternative behavior. Confrontation with an authority figure could be expected. Financially and professionally there is super sparkle potential Friday – Saturday. Something you put a heap of work into pays off in unexpected ways.

Weekly Scopes 10/22 – 10/28

STARSCOPES –

april2-copy  ARIES March 20 – April 19
Generally people think of partners as individuals who are supportive, nurturing or in some way enable ones’ personal growth and development. While this is mostly true, it is worthwhile over the coming weeks to consider even those who play a more contemptuous or adversarial role to be your true partners. Particularly relationships that feature more combative overtones make you stronger and better, as a dynamic atmosphere is present, through which you are forging your identity through a trial or confrontation of some sort. A turning point in matters of the heart at the end of the week features professional or financial overtones. Does your love relationship have what it takes to move into the future with you?

may2-copy  TAURUS April 20 – May 20
A stunning moment within a partnership (just as easily for business as for love) occurs on Thursday, signaling a once in 12 year opportunity to grow and develop within a one on one encounter. Good fortune is present, though this can indicate spiritual wealth as much as material. Mapping out the future together is particularly rewarding. Influences at work or with a glaring health issue are more pervasive and could provide a distinctive source of frustration at the end of the week. A close partner advocates for a reality check and talks you off the proverbial ledge. Friday signals a professional turning point. Time to realign your goals and objectives within the present tense.

june2-copy  GEMINI May 21 – June 20
Very pleasurable auspices are present and you could be in the throes of a highly romantic escapade. Friday could prove worrisome, though, as you realize your no-strings-attached fling requires you either step up or ship out. A lucrative work assignment can come your way on Thursday, and you can also use the good vibes available to promote yourself with ease. Health and productivity are also emphasized, and you have great insights throughout the week if you listen to your body. It will tell how much of what is enough, and how much is too much if you trust the guidance that is within you.

july2-copy  CANCER June 21 – July 22
Very creative stimulation and self expression are paramount this week, and it’s likely been many moons you felt so at ease with yourself and putting yourself out there. Your vulnerability and passion are suddenly very appealing, even to large audiences, and the more you bare your soul, the more people clamor to your side. Thursday presents a compelling moment of serendipity and self awareness. Carve time out also for someone you genuinely cherish, they need you right now. A vexing issue crops up at home or with a troublesome family member at the end of the week. Put the interest of the children first and all will be well.

aug2-copy  LEO July 23 – August 22
Daily life is full of excitement, and you simply can’t contain your excitement and enthusiasm. A writing project could be a good use of this abundance of mental energy, and unlimited texting is your best friend right now. Personal matters remain emphasized, and you are growing in extraordinary ways through your connection to your base and those closest to you. Imagine all the energy in your body traveling down into the earth beneath you, and returning 10 fold, infusing you with stamina and power. Thursday is extraordinary for such an exercise. You deal best with a turning point in a partnership at the end of the week by expressing your hearts’ desire. Nothing more, nothing less.

sep2-copy  VIRGO August 23 – September 22
Expression and communication are highlighted this week, and this could have an especially potent effect on your primary love relationship. You can express yourself with newfound confidence, making this is a significant week for articulating your desires. Tuesday and Thursday are very favorable to bordering on divine, though Friday is a bit more of a mixed blessing. The passion is there, but a niggling financial matter or difference of opinion regarding values could create discord. Next month into December, a residential matter takes center stage and you will be required to once and for all resolve the ongoing challenges of the last few years all at once. For now, enjoy a respite.

oct2-copy  LIBRA September 23 – October 23
You have a nose for money this week and intuition aids you in finding and securing lucrative streams of revenue. This could merely be a starting phase, but an important one. Agreements and contracts require renegotiation through December, revealing a significant payoff in January. Keep at it. The conversations you have now bear significantly on future gains, so be attentive, especially to hunches. Events on Thursday are quite momentous. A big development can point you exactly where you need to be, stimulating a trend of good fortune that lasts for the coming year. Don’t let a clash with a loved one or family member sink your ship on Friday. A relationship requires extra effort or an adjustment, maybe a bit of TLC. This applies equally to your relationship with yourself.

nov2-copy  SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
Mars has tucked itself away in the most hidden and secretive arena of your zodiac, Scorp, giving you the opportunity between now and December 9th to shake out some of the dead weight of skeletons from your closet. (Though in your case, maybe dead bodies apply…) This leaves you free to genuinely embrace the extraordinary potential for expansion and good fortune Jupiter bestows on you, and through which you receive a huge blessing this coming Thursday. Your personal fortune is more on an upward trajectory from November onwards, with a coup in January if you play your cards right. This is the right time to ante up, just be aware financial turnabouts (among other strategic flaws, which have yet to reveal themselves,) require you to keep your poker face for just a bit longer. Meanwhile, you feel good, maybe even great? so what’s a matter of a few more weeks…

dec2-copy  SAGITTARIUS November 22 – December 21
The more serious concerns of the last few months fade into the rear view, opening up a vibrant and socially oriented period for you that extends into December. With Mercury preparing a pirouette in your sign (also in December), the good times extend through New Years, and you could potentially be catching up with people you’d lost track of. Meanwhile your dark and murkies still resurface some interesting detritus from the past, Thursday is highlighted for retrieving a lost treasure. Your intuition is also accentuated in this period as insights filter in from your subconscious. A secret or unintended bit of information that comes to light on Friday can have confrontational consequences…

jan2-copy  CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
Friendships continue to grow, thrive even, and you realize how much certain people and maybe even a certain someone means to you. A heartfelt rendezvous on Thursday fills you with joy about your union, where you are headed and optimistic about life in general. Tune into the remarkable changes and progress you have made since the beginning of the year and likely feel genuine satisfaction for how far you have come. Friday meanwhile, sees you at a crossroads, and a hard stance you took in early January gives way to something bigger and more meaningful as you reorient yourself to the viewpoints of others/another.

feb2-copy  AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Professional opportunities are abundant right now, with very fruitful conversations and ideas flowing through the arena of status and reputation. Conflicts behind the scenes can derail some of your efforts on Friday. The Moon in your sign gives you the fortitude to stand up for what you are worth and value. Better social vibes over the weekend restore some harmony and you can connect with likeminded people through study or travel. Keep exploring options and opportunities for working or studying abroad. These could become significant for you next month.

march2-copy  PISCES February 19 – March 20
The atmosphere is complex right now with so much going on beneath the surface as well as above. You may feel beguiled as to whether you should withdraw or throw yourself out onto the stage of life. Maybe a bit of both is advised, as much is gestating internally and such transformative, personal and intimate subject matter is being explored. You may be reaching out to people from a great distance and even thinking about going back to school. Positive news on Friday catalyses a important metamorphosis. This is a great time to meditate and explore your etherial nature. Intuition is also highlighted here, so trust inner guidance.

STARGAZER MARCH HOROSCOPES:

april2-copy

ARIES: A work project comes complete around the 12th. Your attention returns to more personal matters and finances. From the 11th a transit of Mars through the area of self worth and personal resources (through April 18) will push your attention towards earnings. Follow inspirational hunches on the 27th. Your creative imagination shines. Relationships or feelings of self worth (one is perhaps influencing the other?) get a bit distorted as Venus retrogrades on the 4th. From the 25th you feel a stronger sense of orientation, although it won’t be until the end of next month that all comes together for you personally. Intense vibrations on the 2nd and 30th signal unfinished business in a relationship that was stimulated towards the end of last year. Someone pushes you towards the finish line in a professional undertaking at the end of the month. You can make yourself clear on the 29th. A New Moon in your sign on the 27th sets the stage for progress and success.

This is a period in which you’ll want to go after your desires wholeheartedly. Venus retrograde from the 4th, however, could muddy the waters. There is unfinished business to attend to, potentially in regard to a financial matter that will require resolution next month. Also, as your ruling planet, you’ll be a bit hedonistic without the full force of Venus smoothing your edges. A work or health matter could come to dramatic culmination on the 2nd. Professionally you gain a significant insight. There can be much reassessment of developments that came up at the end of last year. Friends are a source of pleasure and inspiration on the 27th. Take someone out to something arty, you’ll have a great time!

june2-copy

GEMINI: The Full Moon on the 12th signals closure within a domestic matter. You may be at odds with a partner, and there could be a tough atmosphere in which this ending occurs. Mutually, a relationship could be getting more serious and there are adjustments being made in light of a commitment. Not so good for making decisions of the heart, meanwhile, is during the Venus retrograde cycle beginning on the 3rd. This month at least there are favorable overtones as colleagues from the past reemerge. You’ll need to balance business with pleasure as a spotlight shines on you professionally and you continue to enjoy favor and an escalated public profile. Dialogue begins around your professional direction on the 6th is very important for the next 4 months. From the 10th, you journey inwards as you bring the events and actions taken since mid May 2015 to completion and begin a process of endings and closure. This can be a process of psychological release. Meditation or therapy may be beneficial for you.

july2-copy

CANCER: Venus retrogrades on the 4th, and what felt like an imminent career breakthrough may feel as though it has slipped through your fingers. You’ll get there in time, something needs to be reworked and you may need to enroll in a class or program or reconfigure your marketing strategy in order to get there. Mars in Taurus from the 11th takes some of the edge off. You’ll seek out company and social experiences that put you in touch with your dreams. Domestic life is a source of possible tension, and events around the home have a somewhat destabilizing quality at this time. These storylines emerged at the end of last year and continue to seek resolution. You can’t push too hard right now, or the seams will burst! From mid month, you are on the lookout for ways to achieve your professional goals. Illuminating insights on the 25th and 26th will help you adjust your course appropriately, and you can set a plan into motion on the 29th with the full awareness it will take until at least the first week of May to see it all fall into line. A New Moon on the 27th points you in the right direction.

aug2-copy

LEO: Long range objectives and your profession are the focus of most of your energy and attention for the next several months, though the cooperation or resources you require to reach your objectives will need to be sought after, perhaps in distant places or with people from other cultures. Look for clues for the direction you might take around the New Moon on the 27th, with full awareness that it might not be until May that you get on that road. Working alone right now is your best bet, and you can accomplish a great deal in the early part of April, (the 6th, specifically). Otherwise there seems to be a stop and start quality present, use the information that arises over the next two months to clarify your enterprise. Lusty passion arises in your love life, the 26th could prove quite enticing. Love relationships and children can be a bit vexing this month. Anticipate some push and pull in regards to matter of the heart. You may seek to throw out an old script and start over completely. This choice resonates with insights you had at the end of 2016, as you find yourself reaching the same conclusion all over again.

sep2-copy

VIRGO: A financial situation seems to get stuck this month, keep the lines of communication open to see any progress in relational matters. Intuition is strong on the 4th and you can read between the lines. A new conversation begins on the 6th, pay close attention to what is being said. A Full Moon in your sign on the 12th bodes well for your self awareness and knowing where you stand. It also reveals where work needs to be done, and issues at home and a close partnership likely continue to be a part of the equation. These topics continue to unfold over the next 8 weeks. Hang in there. Mars from Taurus on the 11th is energizing for you and you’ll come out from the hinterland of a personal transformation ready to embrace a new challenge.

It’s possible a familial obligation is blocking your relational progress Be grateful for a second chance to rectify a situation which you had not fully grasped or been able to commit to over the next 6 weeks.

oct2-copy

LIBRA: Venus slows and reverses, signaling you are shelving certain negotiations and agreements for the time being. A jolt at the beginning of the month (March 2) can bring some of the issues to the table, with some clarification on the 5th and 18th a distinct possibility. You can use the New Moon on the 27th to gain clarity about what you would like to see develop in your partnerships moving forward, but perhaps give it until early May to reach to conclusion which you desire. Keep the lines of communication open, many opinions are being expressed through which you can gain in perspective. Sparks can fly during a conversation or chance encounter on the 26th. Seek respite or retreat around the 12th, as a Full Moon signals endings highlighting your innermost psychic domain. A hectic schedule at work could make it difficult to find time for restorative and relaxing activities, but make an effort to meditate and reflect as these will be so regenerative. Your intuition regarding health on the 1st and 4th can be illuminating. Mars from Taurus indicates this is a transformative period, particularly where you seek to establish security within or through a close relationship.

nov2-copy

SCORPIO: There can be some rearrangement required on the job, staffing may be shuffled or a project stalls this month. It’s also a second chance to get a project right. The work you are doing now is the stepping stone to promotion or advancement later this Summer into Fall. Give it the required polish and workmanship. Your attention is focused on a key relationship and romance, though with Venus retrograde from the 4th, this too may sidetrack temporarily. A desire for privacy and intimacy can be challenged by your numerous work assignments, which are keeping you so busy right now. Romantic stirrings during the first week will command attention. You sense your true love through a psychic bond or perhaps in a dream. Mercury aids in coming to terms with what needs to be resolved in a work situation after the 14th and a New Moon signals a clearer sense of direction on the 27th.

A new job or assignment can keep you very busy or you may be looking for work through April. Exercise or sports can be very beneficial at this time as well and if you had not kept a New Year resolution for fitness there’s no time like the present! A New Moon on the 27th signals a bold new direction for you, though this one may not fully come together until May. A domestic issue is going to require your attention next month.

You’ll be feeling frisky and fancy free. Take this time to work on an artistic project or cultivate your love connection. Socially this is a good time to connect and reconnect with friends. Networking and communications are highlighted on the 1st, 4th and 8th. Strong intuition or creativity is featured on the 27th. This could make for a very pleasurable experience in a love relationship. You get fresh professional impulses and continue to develop on opportunities that were presented late last year around the 2nd of the month. Keep going.

feb2-copy

AQUARIUS: You may have felt you were getting to the bottom of a huge problem, only to find your solution may be invalid. A tricky cycle for love and finance from the Venus retrograde on the 4th (lasting through the middle of next month) signals unfinished business needs attending. Vibes are good otherwise, and finances will continue to be a principal topic or concern for you over the next few weeks. The 6th and 8th are great for negotiation or making a budget. You may be forced to cut corners on the 12th or 17th, meanwhile, and these dates will reveal shortages where they really need to be addressed. Despite Venus coasting backwards, your mind is sharp and you can be inspired and downright convincing from the 24th – 29th. Excitement prevails over uncertainty. Domestic life requires attention from the 10th, though you will get a lot of support here where you need it to make changes to your residence or with those you share your home.

march2-copy

PISCES: Venus retrograde on the 4th (through the middle of next month) signals a redux is required where financial security is sought. Progress can be made on the 5th, and a direction worth considering will be revealed around the 25th. This reappraisal comes under otherwise incredibly positive influences, especially after the 11th, when Mars enters Taurus and stimulates interaction, making daily life much more exciting. Conversations and agreements on the 18th, 26th and 29th hold water, and there is no need to hold back contracts, unless your heart simply isn’t in it.  Professional turning points are likely on the 12th and 17th. You have to reconfigure yourself somehow to make the most of these valuable opportunities. The Full Moon on the 12th signals a completion or culmination in a relationship. Both Saturn and Pluto are present here, so developments are forged around awareness of a long range goal, while very passionate overtones preside. New financial ground is broken after the 27th, as a New Moon opens a door. Outside sources of income are also a topic this month, issues from the end of last year are revisited.

It’s a short, but action packed month – Leo/Pisces eclipses coupled with very dynamic alinements at the end of February make for highly volatile and electrifying experiences. Changes are to be expected as well as a very brisk pace of activities.

Much of what occurs in February pivots on the Leo 22’ 28” eclipse on the 10th. A great deal of energy is generated at this moment, especially since the Moon connects to Saturn – Sagittarius and Uranus – Aries in a brilliant fire trine. Here we are able to take tempered action on long range initiatives in an innovative manner. Sun and Jupiter also tie into this alignment adding a highly auspicious overtone to our enterprises in this phase. Despite being a somewhat mild eclipse, coupled within this configuration it manages to stimulate a lot of action and initiative (fire) especially where a creative (Leo) or technical/social (Aquarius) theme can be expressed.

leo-eclipse
The early weeks of the month bustle with activity, Venus and Mars in Aries contribute to a dynamic, go getter atmosphere while the Aquarius Sun enables us to seek out new ways of doing things, and to socialize and express ideals. The entire period around the time of the eclipse is vitalizing, as the Sun connects with Uranus and Jupiter, adding a very positive spin to culminating events.

Jupiter will retrograde on the 6th, a period of contraction that will last through June 9th. As Jupiter heads backwards in Libra, we have the opportunity to integrate the growth that has occurred since last August. For those who have been swept up in a whirlwind of expansive opportunity since, you’ll find a few months reprieve (through June 9th) to make good on what has been offered and to take those lucky breaks for what they are worth. Mutually, where we may have over done things or exploited a bounty we may find shortfall. Jupiter is more of an attitude that begets prosperity, while Venus is the tangible result of it, and with both in retrograde (Venus from March 4th), there may be a belt tightening phase ahead as we revamp and reevaluate our resources, material and otherwise.

Venus begins the month already in the shadow of it’s upcoming retro phase next month, so it’s likely the financial, relational and even creative/aesthetic (Venus rules art) topics we have been working on since January 29th, and continuing through the month will be up for reassessment or renegotiation through mid May. So much of this particular retrograde cycle pivots on the Venus – Saturn square, and you may look to events or developments that occurred January 27th for clues as to the major topics that will require your attention. Something critical must be overcome in our quest to attain pleasure, love and abundance and this will be the predominant theme through April, especially on the 8th and 21st of that month. Themes of duty and responsibility resonate intensely during this period, and as any retro phase suggests, unfinished business. We have to live up to the promises we have made and this testing influence will require we resolve any outstanding commitments or fulfill karmic contracts before we can move forward.

From the 18th Sun in Pisces will offer an intuitive and sensitive ambience, the psychic realm is open and we’ll feel more emotional attunement. The Pisces 8’ 12” Solar eclipse on the 26th will link to idealistic Neptune, generating a wishful, hopeful energy. What may have been lost or sacrificed in the challenging periods that afflicted Neptune last year, can now be reclaimed, or ideals are allowed to take on a new form, as this linkage provides a chance to dream and seek the compassionate, selfless expression that was in short supply throughout 2016. For some this will take form within a love relationship, for others a project may come up through which they can express an ideal. Spiritual topics will be important, and this fresh stimulation to our humanity or taking care of those less fortunate may be a feature of developments during the eclipse.

Sun to Pisces South Node on the 22nd, followed by Mercury on the 28th will additionally reveal where endings are required. A shift in attitude or releasing ineffective behavioral patterns will be likely as we come to terms with the realization that certain circumstances no longer serve our evolutionary drives. Since Pisces influences the South Node, it’s likely that we have to reconcile an issue connected to evasive or nebulous ways in which we handle things. Situations or intentions that have been opaque now require clarity. The Nodes are coming close to completing the their tour of the Pisces – Virgo axis, moving on to Aquarius – Leo in early May. Interesting timing that the Venus retrograde shadow phase ends around the same time as this substantial shift in consciousness. We’ll be mining through some pretty dank issues between now and then, but from mid May – a really fresh start is possible. Commit yourself to deal with matters honestly and honor the work required of you in this period whether it be tangible or spiritual in it’s nature. Treasures await those who do so.

The final week is the most combust, as Mars from warrior sign Aries (it’s natural rulership,) tangles with ruthless Pluto (on the 22nd), joins forces with liberator Uranus (on the 26th, same day as the eclipse) and opposes Jupiter on the 27th. It’s a very potent phase for very rapid evolution and sudden changes. Bold action is favored right now, but watch for power struggles during the Mars – Pluto square. Where circumstances or an individual may come across as obstinate, choose to transform yourself instead. Mars conjunct Uranus will provide an opportunity to engage a new pathway to freedom and liberation. As Jupiter moves backwards, it again engages Uranus in an opposition at the beginning of next month. We’ll see developments within storylines that were stimulated towards the end of December 2016, though of course this story does not come complete until August.

STARGAZER FEBRUARY HOROSCOPES:

april2-copy

ARIES: Venus and Mars transiting your sign make you magnetic, it is easy to go after AND receive what you seek in this phase. Friendships and alliances are highly supportive and the social schedule is busting in this phase as well. A key introduction on the 11th can open the doors to a meaningful relationship. With a Venus retrograde looming, there may be a few delays or obstacles to the complete fulfillment of your desires, but hang tight and you will get there (in May). A dynamic Leo eclipse on the 10th infuses you with energy and positivity for the future. Creative and personal projects are enhanced, and a love relationship may feature largely. You may clash with a partner at the end of the month. Consider the other’s perspective while you move boldly into new territory on the 26th and 27th. There can be power struggles on the 22nd, courtesy of a challenging Pluto aspect. Listen and learn. Release the past on the 26th. You can be free.

TAURUS: This is a dynamic month for residential matters, and you may be getting news of, or making a significant relocation. A potent Eclipse on the 10th sends strong vibrations through your most personal emotional and intuitive space. Most of the activity takes place behind the scenes this month, with the 22nd – 27th super charged dates for interesting experiences through which you discover secret or hidden reservoirs of energy or talent within yourself. Premonitions will be strong at this time, and you’ll get flashes of incredible insight. Meanwhile, professional matters continue to culminate and this is a good time to start laying the groundwork for the bigger developments that come in at the end of the year. An assignment or position you take now can help you cultivate skills and the public profile required to make a big change next year.

june2-copy

GEMINI: The eclipse on the 26th points you in the direction of a new professional objective. Your vision becomes revitalized and inspiration leads the way, especially if there were disappointments or set backs last year. It may take a few months to see it all come together and get it’s wings, but clues or indications you get now will prove to be significant. Socially this will be a vital time with many events and parties to attend. The end of the month is incredibly exciting, especially if your are working on a group project. Mercury in Aquarius (Feb. 8 – 26) is very positive for you as well, with the 10th, 16th, 20th, 21st and 23rd all very favorable for travel, educational pursuits, writing and exams. Jupiter retrograde on the 6th can see a down shift in energy for a personal creative project or in a love relationship for a few months.

july2-copy

CANCER: The Leo eclipse on the 10th opens the doors to major changes in your financial status and you may get a lucrative professional offer or start to earn more from within your chosen field. A slow and steady work ethic also presides over these developments and you are beginning to see the results of of your long range efforts bearing fruit. Venus and Mars activate your professional realm, offering you stamina to pursue your ambitions. The last week of the month (especially around the 26th and 27th) are real go-for-it moments, you are definitely on the radar of those who can help you up the ladder of success, or better yet – get out there and make your own opportunities. A conversation or insight on the 20th points you in the right direction. With Venus in retrograde shadow, anticipate in advance what you are working on now will be rebooted in May. Completion and success will come closer to your birthday.

aug2-copy

LEO: Your sense of adventure is stirred deeply this month, particularly in the last week. A Lunar Eclipse in your sign on the 10th can signal sudden and sweeping changes – many of which will be positive, but perhaps, initially overwhelming. A partner or colleague can offer very meaningful advice and assurance at this time. Expect nothing less than a personal revolution! A relationship can take off now as well. Conversation with your spouse or a business advisor will prove to be extremely helpful. There can be volatile influences at work around the 22nd, watch your temper, as a situation can escalate into a fight or accident. You’ll seek to take flight over the 26th or 27th, an unexpected voyage may be in store!

sep2-copy

VIRGO: The emphasis shifts to deep and within. A strong urge to transform through or within a relationship is possible and events on the 26th, under the auspices of the eclipse in Pisces, will reveal your heart’s desire, even if is is only know to you at this time. The future of a partnership has yet to be established, and you might have to go back to the drawing board on a money making scheme. An inheritance, grant or loan can be expedited at the end of the month, this one falls right out of the sky. Changing your relationship to your feelings of self worth and the security you expect to receive from another is a critical feature of what culminates at this time. The 26th and 27th can be volatile for financial matters.

oct2-copy

LIBRA: A great deal of energy culminates through and within your partnerships this month, as a Lunar Eclipse on the 10th triggers a chain reaction impacting your relationships for both business and pleasure. Agreements could be forthcoming in this period, but also tentative, as Jupiter down shifts into low gear, entering it’s retrograde phase on the 6th. Venus in retrograde shadow highlights your relationships, but you may also sense intuitively that it may take a bit longer to get things off the ground. Stunning developments at the end of the month can take you by surprise! Partnership is very stimulating in this phase, and this is a good time for exploring your options, with the intent to seal the deal and leverage your preference in May. Some work around or releasing yourself from a prior commitment may be required before you take that leap of faith!

nov2-copy

SCORPIO: The Lunar Eclipse on the 10th sends shock waves through your professional world. One path is ending so a new one can begin in August. You’ll choose to implement changes slowly, though the ambience is supercharged and energizing in this moment. You are likely working hard this month into next, and the projects you are taking on now are likely going to move you up the ladder to your next phase of success. The final week of the month is exciting and somewhat volatile. Electrifying currents propel you to innovative solutions and a situation, especially at work, can change swiftly and unexpectedly. Events may be unsettling, but seek to help you express greater authenticity and freedom through your job or productivity. A love relationship begins or experiences renewal as the Pisces eclipse stimulates fresh impulses in your romantic life on the 26th. Dreams can come true in this incredible phase. Release outmoded tactics on the 22nd and 28th.

dec2-copy

SAGITTARIUS: This will be a very dynamic and exciting month for you. Romance could have you buzzing or creative activities can be very pleasurable at this time. While a separation is possible in March – April (and it may be an issue completely outside of the relationship altogether) you’ll see the seeds you plant now come to beautiful fruition in May. Socially this is also a vibrant period and daily life will be very busy, especially after the 8th. The 11th, 16th, 20th and 21st are all favorable for scheduling events and meetings. A group or organization you work with can use your input. There can be a financial challenge or shortfall on the 22nd. It’s possible there are expenses connected to your child that is a setback. The Leo eclipse on the 10th is incredible, triggering a phase of remarkable personal development for you. Consider a fire ritual to get in touch with your spirit side and consecrate this dynamic flow of abundance energy. A new frontier ushers in on the 26th. The next 6 months will offer some vital opportunities to create a new home base for yourself.

jan2-copy

CAPRICORN: Financial shifts are highlighted this month, and a loan, venture capital or a spouse’s income is becoming a big feature, with incredible developments around the Leo Eclipse on the 10th. This very auspicious Full Moon will trigger incredible insight and your instincts will be very strong about this, trust the feelings. A key partnership may be transformative for you and intimacy is also highlighted. The residence and personal life are going through big changes now as well and you might be moving or making big adjustments at home. Your authority is challenged on the 22nd. Dynamic and sudden events around the 26th and 27th could be connected to your professional aspirations. These may see some detours through June 10, as Jupiter retrogrades. Look at the opportunities present since last Fall and follow up on the leads you have cultivated.

feb2-copy

AQUARIUS: Big things are culminating within a partnership and you may meet the love of your life, and/or tie the knot under these wildly exciting influences. The Lunar Eclipse on the 10th speaks to commitment and what, as well as whom – the future holds. A commitment you make can really endure at this time, maybe an older person holds the key to your happiness. Mercury in your sign from the 8th can make you a bit of a social butterfly, and vitalizing contacts on the 10th, 16th and 21st will be very exciting for you! The end of the month is vitalizing, and you may be meeting many new people in this period or presenting a written project to the world. A second eclipse (in Pisces, on the 26th) ushers in a new mode of earnings, old trends and limitations on your income are dying out. Inspiration presides and you can take what guides you now and build towards the future. Opportunities revealed towards the end of the year can connect to what is developing now, so follow your muse.

march2-copy

PISCES: It’s a month of change and transitions. A job or professional matter may be at the thrust of this, and you are seeing closure in a way of life, associated with your health or productivity in this period. Financial indications are strong, especially in the last week where a new source of unexpected income could rise up unexpectedly. Keep an eye on those price tags, meanwhile, as Venus soon to be retrograde phase is approaching and there can be shortfalls if you don’t keep on guard with your expenditures. A Solar Eclipse in your sign on the 26th signals how far you have come over the last year and a half – likely a long, long way! Tune into your future and phase out the past, you are soon going to reach a crucial and defining turning point. The 22nd and 28th reveal much about what you still need to release.

STARGAZER FORECAST DECEMBER 2016

Please join me on PATREON.COM for extended access to Stargazer e-books, 2017 horoscopes and more!

December is both beginning and ending, a month in which we see the resolution of the many themes and topics of 2016 fading and dissolving into memory, but also a time in which the major dynamic influences of 2017 begin to be revealed. The first of a series of alinements between Libra – Jupiter (opposite) Aries – Uranus with Saturn peeking in and assisting from Sagittarius occurs between the 24th and 26th of December. Mars from Aquarius, Sun from Sag. and then Venus from Aquarius all augment and support this very unique configuration, during which we begin to see a culmination of the enterprises and storylines that we initiated in June 2010. (These took firmer hold a bit later – January to March of 2013 were ripe for initiation and rooting down with innovative ideas and life choices.)

The ambience stimulated by Jupiter – Uranus is vitalizing, energetic, volatile and highly unstable. Saturn’s influence here suggests we’ll fortunately be moderated and taking a slower and more methodical approach as we reach this critical juncture for the journey we set out on in 2010. This aspect prevails through September 2017, and with the exception of Venus retrograde next Spring and the shift of the Lunar North Node to Leo, this is going to be the most significant force we are going to contend with over the next 10 months. (It’s more than enough to keep you busy, don’t even imagine it’s going to be a boring year!)

In the context of Joseph Campbell’s Heroic Journey, the opposition aspect symbolizes that we have reached the Second Threshold, a point of crisis and confronting the abyss, of death and rebirth. Material and other temptations may emerge to lure us from our quest. Saturn, meanwhile, has already moved into the position of receiving the reward. It is our long range efforts that begin to pay off, even if only modestly, and it is within that which we have invested immense if not immeasurable amounts of dedication, that will remind us that there is still treasure to be had if we stay the course. The hard and gritty lessons and determination required during the critical Saturn in Scorpio transit have begun to yield fruit. These fruits will nourish and inspire us over these next incredible 10 months as we attend to our heroic journey. The choice to cross the threshold will take us into The Other World, and in January 2021 we reach the point of Apotheosis. The maturity we gained for remaining true to the conviction of our quest assists us through during this incredible turning point. The Leo eclipse next February will tap into this configuration and offer a very exciting development!

The Sun, Venus and Mars all activate exciting new developments, though Venus and Mars are still at odds, remaining out of one another’s reach until mid April, in the midst of a very, very tough retrograde cycle. (It may in fact be a romantic prospect that brings us back from the brink during that challenging phase.) If the love and sex life are on the meh side of the spectrum, it’s likely because the yin/yang polarity of desire and ability to receive pleasure are in such incongruous spaces, and remain so for a few more months. Your own personal chart aspects notwithstanding, this is a tenuous phase in which to see to significant developments within relationships, especially with that Venus retrograde looming.

It would be incredibly bad form to ever suggest that if you feel love and have a relationship in which you can express these feelings in a healthy, affirming way that you should avoid doing so. Simply that the love and sex drives have disparate outlets right now, and if a relationship is not going as smoothly or gaining momentum as you had hoped it would, that this could provide a clue as to why. The end of December does feature some very positive Venus contacts, as the Goddess of Love locks into the Uranus, Jupiter, Saturn aspect and we get reinforcement (and perhaps resources) that augment our potential to take on the exciting prospect for adventure it represents. Again, it’s less likely this ties into a romantic scenario, but feelings will be very positive and make for spirited Yule festivities.

TEN OF CUPS: MARS IN PISCES
Let things develop by themselves.
Breathe deeply and let a picture arise in you
which shows you in a state of complete
fulfillment. Life will offer all you need to be
happy. Gerd Ziegler, handbook for the
Aleister Crowley Tarot

While we experience a significant culmination, there is also a strong sense of disintegration and closure as Mars from Pisces (December 19 – January 29) takes all the energy and influences stimulated over the last two years Mars cycle (begun February 19, 2015) and deconstructs these initiatives, offering resolution for what we have managed to accomplish since then. We are in the process of dissolving the prior cycle in preparation for the rebirth that occurs January 29th when Mars transits zero Aries. From Pisces, we return to the vastness of creation itself and the limitless potential of everything. The Ten of Cups is a positive indicator that our hearts overflow with joy and gratitude for what we reap at the closure of this cycle, and that fulfillment is within reach.

Mars represents the vitality and drive we have to achieve our aims or to get what we desire. In this last cycle we (hopefully) learned many things about what is and is not effective or constructive use of our energy, especially during this last retrograde period in April – June. Mars conjunct South Node on the 27th will provide a signal that an activity or association has run it’s course. There can be a setback or karmic occurrence at this time. What ever happens is only meant to adjust or modify the course or to release a fruitless endeavor. You’ll know inside. Energy will also be low, so keep your major initiatives on the burner until late February. When Mars engages the Jupiter – Uranus – Saturn aspect, it’s all systems go!!!

Energy now is directed inward, and guided by compassion and inspiration. You can make the most effective use of this time through creative work, reflection and cultivation of mystical and spiritual practices. Write some music, or get on that meditation kick you’ve been putting off. The psychic realm is active and intuition will be very strong in this phase. At it’s worst, this energy, because it is so receptive, can fall into the trap of illusions or be gullible to predators who perceive this vulnerability as weakness. This is a positive time for ritual, healing and purging. Also a good time to peace out in your girl cave and listen to Mazzy Star, feel free to hang this sign on the door:

MERCURY RETROGRADE: December 19 – January 8

If you’ve been frazzled by the super hectic pace of the last 5 weeks, you’ll notice things start to slow down at the onset of the month, and that either projects come complete or you otherwise have more time to catch up through mid month. As Mercury retrogrades on the 19th, it just misses contact with Pluto, so it seems a crucial agreement or decision will have to wait until the end of January. With the general quietude of Mars transiting Pisces, (and also Venus through early February) it looks like the next two months are about clearing the decks (or cleaning up the mess) in preparation for a period of much greater activity that arrives during the winter months.

Mercury will retrograde through January 8th. From there the dust clears and we can begin to move forward with things. Have a safe and wonderful New Year, and don’t forget to join me on Patreon.com for my new weekly astrology blog!

STARGAZER HOROSCOPE BY SIGN: (It is suggested you read for your ascendant too. If you are not sure, you can calculate your chart for free on astro.com)

ARIES: Blissful social connections offer so much happiness for you this month. A holiday party can bring about a significant introduction to someone with partnership potential. Let the sparks fly and give this one time to grow into itself. You can lean on what you learned about commitments (and keeping them) in 2014 and have a better idea now of what you really have to offer. Professional matters and where you are heading become the hot topic of conversation, though this one takes a while to hammer out. Listen to offers (and to your own inner voice) through February. The conviction to make an enduring decision and rise to that challenge, will come in a few months time.

TAURUS: The buzz for you is profession and advancement, your big picture goals are in focus and a great deal of energy and enthusiasm can help you move towards a big milestone. An assignment or new job enhances your public profile, and this is a good time to take on an extra position. You might come into contact with someone who can help you up the ladder while doing a freelance gig, so keep your feelers out there. Forces behind the scenes, as well as your intuition are conspiring to your benefit. Spend some time with your confidantes or on your own to heed the important message being sent your way. Friends and associates can brighten your spirits. A connection may come to an end around the 27th. It’s in your best interest to walk away at this time.

GEMINI: After a pretty rough year, you finally hit the sweet spot. Life is very lively and exciting in this phase. A commitment may be deepening in this period, and this could be contributing to your satisfaction as well. A Full Moon in your sign on the 13th shows you how far you have come this year. It’s time to release a defeating pattern or activity associated with your career or vocational objectives. Events or indications around the 27th reveal the details. A better professional atmosphere prevails next month, though 2017 has a few tricks up it’s sleeve. (Give yourself till May to work out all the kinks!) Enjoy the camaraderie and social opportunities available at this time.

CANCER: Could be a long and winding road for a close or exclusive partnership is in store, Mercury retrograde sends out mixed signals about where you are headed with you know who! A serious, deep down and dirty conversation about your commitment needs to happen, but won’t until late January. Hang in there, babe. The more exciting news seems to taking place for you professionally, as a rather dry and dormant period for your career is coming to an end. Events around the beginning and end of the month offer incredible indications, seems you need to leave your comfort zone to make the most of the opportunities in store. A New Moon on the 29th signals changes in your status. See what January has in store before you buy that ring.

LEO: Partnerships are emphasized this month with really incredible social opportunities in store at both the beginning of the month as well as over the weekend of the 25th. If you’ve been feeling like taking a relationship to the next level, you could find you are ready to make a big step this month. The Mercury retrograde cycle impacts your work, health and productivity sector, so if you’ve been waiting to hear about an assignment or promotion, you might be waiting a bit longer. There are good indications towards the end of the month that signal stagnation for your life direction is clearing. You’ll seek some privacy from the limelight towards the end of the month and into the new year. A meditation practice or retreat can be beneficial.

VIRGO: Love and partnerships have likely been a source of all kinds of weird, complicated and beguiling scenarios this year, if not a source of outright frustration. The road gets easier this month and you can proceed with a relationship with a deeper sense of assurance and commitment, though the retrograde period of Mercury will likely see a few missed signals and maybe a reconsideration, Mars and later Venus coming to occupy the part of your chart associated with your other half signal fresh impulses are stirring in your love life. The 27th is time to release a worn out relationship script, I think they call that one beating a dead horse. (January 8th also features some strong clues of what you need to let go of.) Financials are in a state of great vitality, perhaps sudden expansion, and a work from home business can thrive in this phase.

LIBRA: It’s a real bang up of a month for Libra, so much energy is percolating in a creative enterprise or with a romantic relationship. The first few days of the month can seal the deal on an important commitment for either business or pleasure. There is more in store over the weekend of the 24th and you will doubtless be ringing in many happy returns, regardless of how catastrophic 2016 may have been for you at times. Uranus direct from the 29th signals a dry spell in a relationship is coming to an end. If you are not partnered, you will see exciting prospects emerge in February and through the Spring. From the 20th you enter a hard working phase. The assignments you deal with throughout January propel you to success this Summer, so do your best work. Mercury retrograde impacts your residence. If relocating, best to wait till February!

SCORPIO: The cutbacks and commitment you have demonstrated in trying to work out your tough financial issues are beginning to pay off, though probably in a scenario that is very private and behind the scenes. Your desire to self employment or the sense of liberation you seek from the workaday world is rekindled this month, and from New Years forward you see better influences here, particularly from February. Home is where the heart is for you right now, and you will likely be holding your key social and family events at your own place, possibly hosting those from out of town or having a nice, low key soiree. It’s been mostly a bitterly tough year for matters of the heart, and you’ve probably taken some time to lick your wounds. Feelings stir in your romantic sector from the 20th, a trend that takes you right through January. Release an old script on the 27th, and get in touch with someone you lost touch with.

SAGITTARIUS: It’s a boisterous and exciting month for you with very positive indications that your hard work and maturing outlook are really beginning to pay off. Events at the beginning of the month, as well as over the weekend of the 24th provide immense opportunities for making enduring and positive moves. Some of these have to do with a love relationship, and if you’ve been floundering you might find the inroads to make a commitment around the Full Moon on the 13th. Mercury retrograde impacts you money, honey, so get it in writing and don’t make yourself nuts waiting for the check to show up in the mail. It won’t. Or at least not until the end of January. The 10th and 12th are dynamic for you, you make a very positive impression. Bravo!

CAPRICORN: Very dynamic points in your chart are stimulated by the upcoming configurations and your base of operations, profession and private life all play a big role in the upcoming 10 months. It’s not impossible you need to relocate to take an offer or opportunity associated with you career, or that your work is going to keep you on the road a lot as you ascend the heights of your ambition. The work you are doing remains very much behind the scenes through next year. When Saturn moves into your sign next December you’ll enter a new high profile phase, reaping the rewards of the work you are doing now and no doubt an impeccable work ethic. You are learning to trust your inner voice more than your inner critic. Mercury in your sign for most of the next 8 weeks will likely make you busy-busy-busy. Finances are also key this month, with a proper pay off for your work in the early days of the month.

AQUARIUS: By far this will be the best month of the year for you, as Mars and Venus stimulate a very positive and productive ambience, and make harmonious combinations to Uranus and Jupiter throughout the month. An older friend may provide very good advice or support for your endeavors. Your’ ruling planet turning direct on the 29th will help you shake any doldrums. There is an infectiously playful element at work and the Full Moon on the 13th is absolutely delightful for self expression or a romantic relationship. Out and about is the best place to be! Mercury retrograde impacts your private life, and you can get some mixed signals from your subconscious. Dreams will be revealing, and can reveal what you need to say goodbye to. Mars from the 19th makes your finances a high priority. A source of income may come to an end on the 27th.

PISCES: You are back stage and getting ready for something really, really big Pisces, as Mars and then Venus come to occupy your slice of the sky. For now, you are working away behind the scenes and seeing some very exciting financial developments from what you have been cooking. A professional venture is highlighted and you may get capital to expand or develop your business, or be getting a raise for your hard work. This is an ongoing process that lasts through August, so you may just be in the initial phases this month, with more to be revealed up ahead. A limiting belief or behavior can effectively be released on the 27th, perhaps an enterprise or activity has run it’s course. You shine brightly on New Years Eve, bring on the bubbly and enjoy a romantic interlude. You are worth it.
