You reach your power point at the beginning of the week, though tensions with a power figure might erupt Monday. You seek privacy over the coming weeks, recuperating your energy for all the excitement that is building into March and beyond. Relax and reinvigorate.

may2-copy  TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Where you want to go and how you will get there is the significant issue of the coming weeks.

july2-copy  CANCER June 21 – July 22
Plan your dream vacation this week. Consider what environment appeals to your senses and where you would feel amazing if you woke up there in the morning. Natural features like water, mountains, forest or the desert speak volumes to where your heart seeks to wander. Your parter is likely to get right on board for this one.

aug2-copy  LEO July 23 – August 22
A partnership reaches a pinnacle midweek. Surrender completely to love and give yourself entirely to a romantic gesture. Merging your energy with another is vitalizing at this point.

Key relationships are front and center of your attention this week, with a very special development midweek. Convey your hearts’ desire to the one you love. You can make a meaningful commitment now.

Use the next few weeks to examine how you take care of yourself, and how this reflects how you appreciate yourself. Productivity and creativity are running high. Where do you see yourself at the end of the year? Time to gear up for those outcomes. The projects and alliances you cultivate now have a huge bearing on these, so chose carefully.

nov2-copy  SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
Self expression is vitalizing and provides you with the courage to show your heart. Demonstrate your ideal midweek. A commitment you make in love will stand the tests of time. Financial issues will likely consume your attention at the end of the week. Check facts and figures thoroughly.

march2-copy  PISCES February 19 – March 20
So much energy is generating for Pisces right now, the inspiration you currently feel could almost be overwhelming.

This is a highly dynamic week during which several exciting new beginnings can transpire. Aquarius and Uranus are running the show (or is it more of a circus?) so the unconventional and innovative play an outsize role in what develops now. This is a mirror eclipse to the Lunar Eclipse that occurred last August 7th and serves as a punctuation mark in an ongoing narrative. Circumstances and individuals from which you may have liberated yourself around that time created the space that make you available to new opportunities that appear this week and beyond. Anything that comes into your life now will likely do so in a most unexpected fashion. There is an accelerated quality to all developments and life may not look anything like it does today on the other side.

This may also be a time of reflection on the ongoing changes occurring, July features a very volatile return eclipse to what precipitates now. Uranus plays a major supporting role to all current developments and whatever is going on in the Aries realm of your chart (Uranus is currently at 25 Aries) is going to add a lot of stimulation to the events of the week. There is some urgency to move in new and uncharted territory and where you might feel stuck, to just take up a whole new course completely. Mars spends close to 5 months in Aquarius this year, (due to retrograde motion this Summer) and does not reach the eclipse degree until November 10 – 11. Expect developments around that point that advance or culminate the storylines being set into motion this week. This suggests there is a “work in progress” quality inherent here, so give yourself time to negotiate road ahead, there are some twists and turns in store!

A Sun – Mercury conjunction on Saturday (28’ Aquarius) stimulates a new four month cycle of activity lasting through the beginning of June. Essentially a plan or enterprise that is put into motion today will be the primary source of daily communication and productivity over this period. Unfortunately it is underscored by a Mars – Neptune square, which generates an ambience of confusion. Under this aspect, it’s difficult to determine how, or even why, action should be taken. There is inspiration that lies beneath this, but it’s source can be difficult to uncover. Disappointment and delusions are present where dishonesty is uncovered.

Uranus of course, is a very vitalizing feature, and will likely offer some innovative breakthroughs in thinking making this a good time to come up with new and ingenious solutions. It also signals the midway point between Merc. retrograde phases, with the next three weeks being the most active of the cycle, so get going! Mercury enters Pisces next Saturday, for a very brief transit, spending about 16 days in the sign. From early March, Mercury begins a 10 week transit of Aries, so enjoy the relative quietude of the present moment. Mercury – Pisces stimulates imagination and compassionate exchanges. Enjoy the voyage into the visionary realm.

STARSCOPES:

april2-copy ARIES March 20 – April 19
This is a very prolific time for you socially, especially if you are involved with a community or group activity. Expect new and interesting people to enter your life over the coming weeks and months. There is also a desire to withdraw and reflect, and this is especially true from next weekend. You have a very busy period on the horizon and should carve out some personal time before everything comes rushing your way.

may2-copy TAURUS April 20 – May 20
Professional changes and developments are exciting and unexpected. Apply your intuition, as unusual and offbeat ideas allow you to make the most of opportunities. This is a year of huge shifts in your life direction, and events this week are setting these into motion. A friend may reveal a secret that takes you by surprise next weekend. Socially, better times are ahead and new alliances can be made.

june2-copy GEMINI May 21 – June 20
Long range goals are coming more into stronger focus and you begin to make plans for the future, or at least a journey of some distance may lie in store. This is a productive time for you to attain at least one professional milestone, though you’ll have to take swift action from next weekend as this window is open rather briefly. Saturday is has rather disturbing undertones to it, obligations to career and partnership require clarification.

july2-copy CANCER June 21 – July 22
A secret source of inner strength propels your professional ambitions. A spouse or business partner could really assist you in attaining a goal. You make enormous discoveries in the coming 6 months about to whom your allegiances truly belong. Set your sights on a distant horizon next weekend. Adventure is in your midst, and from next month career is heavily emphasized so enjoy it while you can.

aug2-copy LEO July 23 – August 22
Relationships are in for all kinds of exciting and unexpected developments. There could be an announcement of marriage and single Leo could meet someone out of the blue. Enjoy the ride for all it’s worth, but take all that happens with a morsel of wait and see. This is an ongoing storyline that does not quite reach it’s destination for a while longer. Savor this moment while remaining amenable to other sudden changes.

sep2-copy VIRGO August 23 – September 22
Relationships continue to flourish, especially from Saturday when you finally can say (or hear) the words that express your hearts desire so fully. Equally hopes can be dashed where illusion has played a bigger role than reality, of alternately your living situation or family could produce an unexpected obstacle to the attainment of your wishes. If you have sought new employment, the next few months could produce an ideal, but expected opportunity.

oct2-copy LIBRA September 23 – October 23
An exciting partnership with someone who helps you take your creative expression to the next level could be in store, restoring your confidence. While these compelling alignments occur in the areas of romance/pleasure and partnership, the nature of the planets suggests relationships are based on friendship and camaraderie. You will likely have opportunities over the coming months to find love, with events this week opening a door.

nov2-copy SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
Your family and personal life are in a period of dramatic rearrangement. This is an ongoing process and one that requires a large amount of self awareness. Barriers and limitations that you experience through your early conditioning are dissolving. This gives way to something more authentic for you, though it could take time to figure out exactly what that looks like. Part of has to do with coming to terms with yourself, and releasing that which is not.

dec2-copy SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21
You seem to have urgent to get off your chest, or something that requires your whole self expression. There are vitalizing influences in which you can readily do so, and events all week are compelling for forward movement of a very personal initiative or agenda, especially if related to creativity. There are some tricky dynamics to contend with in regard to your personal life. The channels of communication open up to deal with these Saturday.

jan2-copy CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
A very dynamic influence triggers sudden financial developments, these may be attached to a familial or ancestral matter. The independence you have sought in your living situation is enhanced. If you encountered the end of a source of income last August, you begin to discover shoots and sprouts have emerged in place of these, and require your continued cultivation. An upbeat feeling prevails Thursday, a conversation sets wrongs to rights.

feb2-copy AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
An Eclipse in your sign is never a small matter, but this is an especially potent one, connecting so vitally with your ruler Uranus, poised in a position of assistance. Who you are and what you have to convey now is highlighted, and you can assert yourself very authentically now. The energy is ripe for self discovery, and a new trajectory, especially from Saturday can be set. Money matters can be dealt with over the rest of the month.

march2-copy PISCES February 19 – March 20
Energy foments in your most interior and secret spaces. This is a fantastic time to look within and learn about yourself. Intuition is also remarkably strong right now and can produce a unique money making idea. Events on Saturday could challenge your personal perspectives. At the same time, Mercury enters your sign for a brief visit, which allows you to more easily articulate your position and clear up any misunderstandings.

January was a month fraught with huge punctuation marks, as revelations stimulated by awareness of the deep conviction and desires that exist deep within resulted in massive and transformative shifts in consciousness via Pluto contacts and Jupiter in Scorpio. The reclamation of personal power was likely a huge theme, and where abuses were revealed, it is just as likely endings were made within circumstances or relationships in which exploitation had become overtly detectable.

As planets migrated into Aquarius, a lot of the intensity subsided as activities became more socially and intellectually motivated. The emotional stakes are lowered, and a tempestuous and stormy period fades into the rear view mirror as subjective inputs quiet and more rational sensibilities take over. The new directions and dimensionality of being coming into awareness now is very much reinforced during the Aquarius eclipse on the 15th. In the way the January 31st eclipse in Leo provided a new chapter or culmination within a narrative or storyline that precipitated last August, the Aquarius eclipse mutually offers a new beginning predicated on the space made by relinquishing or surrendering something (or someone) during the previous Aquarius eclipse last August.

The recent aspects of Venus and Sun to the South Node (at 15’ Aquarius, the degree of last Summer’s eclipse) revealed and reinforced those endings. Mercury taps into this sensitive point on the 9th, and a conversation or the ability to finally articulate closure offers a clear slate from which to embrace the new opportunities present from mid month following this very dynamic eclipse period spanning February 13 – 17. Remarkably innovative and intellectual undercurrents stimulate a new undertaking featuring a Sun – Mercury conjunction ( also the beginning of a significant 4 month cycle of activity) and augmented by the sextiles of Sun, Moon and Mercury to Uranus. There is enormous conviction to independence and autonomy with these influences, although through Aquarius networks that enable the freedom of motion sought can be helpful to your enterprise, should you be able to enlist likeminded people who don’t attempt to reign you in or hold you back.

Venus is sextile to Saturn at this time, suggesting relationships that have been reconciled over the prior 4 months offer constructive avenues for expression now, and where mutuality and stability play an important role there are likely to be positive developments. The previous Sun – Mercury cycle (which began on October 8, 2017) was wrought with friction as Venus square Saturn and Sun – Mercury squared Pluto occurred during the onset of that cycle. A lot of relational issues and power struggles played a substantive role in the prior phase, with newer patterns establishing themselves from late December into early January as a result of facing those challenges and clarifying roles and objectives.

As Pisces becomes dominant towards the third week of the month and into March, the ambience softens and becomes more intuitive and responsive. Mars in Sagittarius contests this and numerous squares between Sag – Pisces encourage remaining outgoing and forthright. Pisces can have a tendency to dissolve and obfuscate the truth. Mars from this position of conviction will not allow for this. The most notable contact occurs when Venus squares Mars, issuing a challenge to relationships initiated around October 5th.

This is a period of conflict that can lead to productive growth, assuming the parties involved can find a way to reconcile pettiness, illusion and self righteousness for the sake of the partnership. Give and take is crucial here if this is a storyline you seek to see continue. This also provides a litmus attesting to the strength or weaknesses that lies in the bond that exists between two people. Splits are possible now where that connection is weak or individuals let ego needs take precedence over love needs, mutual respect and understanding. Feel this one out gently, it is a very revealing contact.

ALSO HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!!! I’m not the most knowledgeable source for Chinese Astrology, beyond that the annual New Moon in Aquarius serves as the Lunar New Year for all the cultures that celebrate it. 2018 represents the Year of the Dog, and is attributed the qualities of loyalty, responsibility and honesty, with a Western astrology equivalent of Libra.

STARSCOPES:

april2-copy  ARIES March 20 – April 19
You may be parting way with a group of friends or colleagues this month, many relationships have been outgrown and you’ll get evidence this month that compels you to cut binding ties. You may be starting a new group project or working with an organization on the 17th. This cycle of activity carries you through the next 4 months. Venus nestles in a quiet and reflective part of your chart, stimulating your imagination and intuition. Take some time out this month for meditation and relaxation if possible. Your wanderlust and desire to explore is equally stimulated, though the 17th and 25th could prove vexing in this regard. You reach a crucial professional decision on the 28th.

may2-copy  TAURUS April 20 – May 20
You get a sense this month that the winds of change are blowing. Your life direction is highlighted and you may be closing doors, saying goodbye or otherwise moving on from a professional path you have outgrown. Events and intuition on the 3rd, 9th and especially around the eclipse on the 15th speak to this, and as soon as the 17th you may embark on a new path on which you will seek your true calling. The Good, Bad and Ugly all come out to play towards the end of the month, love relationships have a roller coaster quality to them – super passionate one day, trouble the next. A lot of passion is stirring and you find yourself in a highly transformative phase. Hidden aspects of your psyche you may have tried to repress (Saturn in Sagittarius) emerge as fully fledged elements of your persona! Make room for yourself and trust intuition, which is heightened in this phase for a reason.

june2-copy  GEMINI May 21 – June 20
You could be basking in the love light this month as Venus and Mars collaborate to give you some really special moments with someone close to your heart. Not so much the 25th, which has icky and awkward all over it. Skip this one for dates or other interludes. An adjustment is being made in your goals and work life, and a partner may not be too comfortable with what’s percolating. An office romance blows up in your face. You can reach a dream (or find a new one) in your professional life on the 21st. You have good prospects this month, especially within a creative career or sideline. A new learning or adventure phase begins on the 15th – 17th. What piques your curiosity? Where would you like to go? It’s a good time to plan for school or night course with the expectation of beginning this Fall. (October is awesome.)

july2-copy  CANCER June 21 – July 22
Work and finance is the highlight this month with a solitary eclipsed New Moon setting the tone for the whole month on the 15th. In your case, this will have more to do with other peoples’ money, and banks or legacies could be a predominant feature. Any outstanding debt or your partner’s income could be problematic, it might be time to make some serious cuts or adjustments to the budget. These triggers are just meant to remind you to work towards self reliance, and to stimulate you to your earnings potential. You begin on a path to resolution on the 17th. Venus and Mars at odds on the 25th can send up a distress signal in a relationship. It’s best to hold off on impulsive decisions regarding matters of the heart at this time. Better auspices await on the 27th, passion is aroused. You are busy on the job this month and this is a good time for your productivity if you manage not to overdo it. Projects and assignments you take on now will move you into prime position for a promotion next January, so do your very best work.

aug2-copy  LEO July 23 – August 22
Powerful relational triggers and potential fallout with a partner is possible this month, the hands of destiny are in motion, ushering in a time of sweeping change, especially on the 3rd, 9th and especially during the eclipse on the 15th. There can be unions, reunions, comings and goings in this period, and regardless of how you feel about what occurs, trust that destiny is leading you to a better place and precisely where you belong, even if things are super wonky at first. The eclipse can bring about a surprising contact, probably with someone who has a different background than you, though this connection feels quite fated. A business association can be established on the 17th. Mars is stimulating a lot of impulse to pleasure and creativity, even romantic associations. Things get tricky on the 17th and 25th, and if something feels uncertain, pull back and wait for clearer indications. You could get great news about benefits packages or from stock options you have through a job or assignment on the 27th or 28th. Money comes in from a hidden avenue.

sep2-copy  VIRGO August 23 – September 22
Your work life is emphasized over the first few weeks and assignments will be varied and keep you busy. There could be a sense you are “over it” where a job is concerned, and the 3rd and 9th are revealing. The eclipse on the 15th resounds loudly and it’s likely you are going to see significant changes at work over the next six months. What you don’t successfully manage to bury now will likely demand your attention come July. A new cycle is stimulated on the 17th, a new project will preoccupy your daily activities for the next 4 months. Your home life is also full of activity and there can be some contentious energy in the domestic or personal relationships. This could have a debilitating effect on relational matters on the 17th and 25th. These would not, for instance, be ideal dates to introduce your partner to your family for the first time, unless you like a good brawl! Venus comes to your rescue and the 15th, 21st and 27th are beautiful for growing a connection and expressing your heart’s desire.

oct2-copy  LIBRA September 23 – October 23
There could be some exciting developments in a love relationship or in your personal realm of play and self expression this month. An eclipse on the 15th and something you start (maybe a creative project) on the 17th will play a huge role in your life over the next four months. Encounters with people from the past (past lives?) could also occur, the 3rd and 9th could reopen doors to these connections. These contacts can also represent endings, and reaching the end of the road where a circumstance has run out of room to grow. Socially you have a very busy schedule and there are likely many meetings, negotiations and a great deal of overall communication. This could be an auspicious time to launch a new enterprise, although the 17th and 25th are not so favorable and should be left out for major initiatives. Inspiration and passion guide you on the 21st and 27th. These are great for showing off what you got.

nov2-copy  SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
An eclipse affecting your domestic sector can signal either how far you’ve come (since last August) or how far you still have to go to get your house in order. Emergency or unexpected situations with family members or flatmates may throw you for a loop mid month. The 3rd and 9th can also dredge up uncomfortable issues, and the best you can do is let these periods be instructive to you and figure out what you need to let go of or release. From the 11th, Venus activates your love zone, opening the door to some very enticing romantic experiences. The 21st is super dreamy and a fantasy could become real for you, or you could wile the time in day dreams. This is a very enchanted, but equally elusive transit and can go either way. There could be challenges in store on the 25th, but try to keep that hatchet buried, as passion awaits on the 27th and it would be awful to have blown off your lover and miss out on the excitement in store.

dec2-copy  SAGITTARIUS Nov. 22 – Dec. 21
Endings and beginnings continue to be a primary topic, as people and routines of your daily life come to closure. The 3rd and the 9th are both susceptible to letting go, and the mid month Aquarius eclipse will drive this home. A new order arises on the 17th and could include a project you work on with a group of friends, likely related to writing, or maybe a theater piece or educational documentary. This activity will be a priority over the next 4 months and requires an innovative approach or humanitarian appeal. The focus from mid month moves to your home and most personal life. You can realize a dream regarding your residence on the 21st and and financial upswing allows for upgrades on the 27th. Adding a decorative item or painting one wall of a room a deep blue will activate a positive Feng Shui, and break up stagnant energy in your home. There can be a very contentious issue with a flatmate on the 25th, and this will be doubled if you are romantically involved, or living with your lover or your spouse. Take the high road, it will save you a lot of of trouble.

jan2-copy  CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
You continue to work to develop security, this will apply to both your income and domestic situation this month. A great deal is occurring behind the scenes, as you release the cycle of activity of the prior two years, preparing for the next beginning, when Mars enters your sign next month. For now there is a more quiet and introverted/introspective ambience as you feather your nest and release the outworn elements of your past, preparing for the very dynamic period set to unfold. Harmony prevails mid month, though you may be seeing a very significant change in your cash flow, a source of income begins or ends or both. With Uranus in a positive angle, swift changes come quite unexpectedly from equally unanticipated quarters, potentially leaving you thunderstruck and not sure where to turn next. With the domestic life implicated here, a relocation may be required to take up an offer. Mutually, a financial upgrade may put you in a position where you can gain long sought after autonomy in your residential situation, for instance if you have wanted to live alone you might be able to afford to do so now. A more social ambience prevails over the second half of the month and you’ll enjoy communications and the company of friends. Not so much on the 25th, though, as someone seems to probe you for your secrets.

feb2-copy  AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Mercury joins the party in your sign on the 9th. The pace is lively this month and social activities or a group project could command a lot of your time and attention. The 3rd, 6th, 15th, and 17th are particularly vitalizing and open channels that help you articulate a vision or dream. You can put a personal project (including a self improvement program) into motion on the 17th. This will be the thrust of your daily activities for the next four months and encompasses the next Mercury retrograde cycle. During that period you will be required to define yourself more clearly, or narrow the scope or scale of a project somewhat. The initiation that occurs now is very exciting, and a very instrumental storyline for your year. After the 11th and especially during the last 2 weeks there is more of an emphasis on the financial realm. Enhancements or revenue from creative enterprises on the 15th, 27th and 28th provide assurance you are on the right track.

march2-copy  PISCES February 19 – March 20
A tendency to withdraw and recharge continues. Resolutions and healing processes are extremely potent this month, especially on the 3rd and 9th. Swift changes can occur on or around the 15th, as a Solar Eclipse illuminates the past and what you need to release. These have been rather endemic issues for some time, and events last Summer may have signaled that certain elements of your life are ready to be relinquished. There is a financial undertone here, and it could be that you are selling an heirloom, or possibly something else is on it’s way out that in some unexpected way lends to your fortune. A tendency towards introspection competes with a professional urgency that is required of you through mid March. It becomes easier to put your best foot forward from the 11th, when Venus comes to occupy your sign, enhancing ability to offer and receive pleasure. An awkward moment on the 25th will let you know if you have taken things too far. You could be the recipient of an unwelcome flirtation at your job, or there could be an entanglement regarding your personal relationship that casts a negative shadow on your public profile. It’s mostly good otherwise, and after the 18th you’ll fully be prepared to take your personal spotlight and make a big impression.

Weekly Horoscopes 1/28 – 2/3

This week provides a catalyst for dynamic transformations, as the Lunar Eclipse at 11’ Leo on Wednesday ushers in a new chapter in a narrative that was put in to motion last August, and which will continue to culminate through April. The Leo Solar Eclipse stimulated a powerful current of energy, and creativity and conviction are called for while the North Node travels in Leo. At this time the outgrowth of those choices can be evaluated, whether the right choices had been made and if you are moving in the right direction. If not, this is the time to modify the course and get back on track. When the True Node (North Node) aligns with the eclipse degree over the last two weeks of April, the outcome will be quite evident. The eclipse aligns in opposition to Venus, so there can be a romantic or financial matter that quickly goes from simmer to full boil. It’s also possible a sacrifice of some order might need to be made to capitalize on the opportunity the Eclipse provides.

There is also a lot of South Node activity this week, serving up reminders of what has been left behind, or what is in the process of receding into the past. Venus – South Node on Tuesday followed by the Sun – South Node on Friday are potent moments for discovery and release. Occurrences of de ja vous are likely around these times and on a karmic level, events that transpire have very fated overtones. Should you come across someone from your past during the course of the week, there is likely an unresolved issue to attend to. This is an opportunity to rectify a matter and move on from a circumstance or connection that no longer serves your evolutionary directives. On occasion, there is a reward for having done something good in the past, even a past life, so if you are the beneficiary of good fortune, know it is the karmic result of prior choices or behavior.

Mercury connects with Chiron early in the week. A conversation can have highly therapeutic effect or a decision can be made that enables a healthier relationship with yourself or someone else. Chiron is a pain point, so discussing or journaling about sensitivity, a hurt or wound, or where you might feel a lack of self confidence or even unworthy is fruitful now and can have a therapeutic effect on resolving this issue. From Wednesday, Mercury enters Aquarius, and the mental – communicative faculties undergo a process of incredible experimentation and open mindedness. Scientific exploration is highlighted, and social/political matters take on greater significance. Aquarius is highly humanitarian sign, and thinks in terms of the greater good of all of society. It is here we reach 6 of Swords – Science, the unification of ideas through an uncanny or unconventional awareness. A collaboration with Mars on Saturday can produce a great deal of motivation to get something underway. It’s time to shake off the dead and dreary and go for it!

STARSCOPES:

april2-copy   ARIES March 20 – April 19
Your mojo is lit by the Leo eclipse and your self expression can really soar. Relationships may be transforming meanwhile and you could be parting ways with a group or individual with whom you no longer feel a sense of meaningful connection. Next weekend is ideal for meeting new people, especially where you share ideals or a vision for the future. New contacts quickly come to replace the old and there may even be a sense of exciting urgency over the coming weeks.

may2-copy  TAURUS April 20 – May 20
Personal and professional matters are culminating, the result of choices you made late last Summer. You may be in the midst of moving house or relocating to take on an exciting new position. There could be some doors closing as you step away from a career path that is not bearing fruit or providing you with a sense of security and satisfaction. An opportunity comes your way next weekend, this deal could be too good to refuse!

june2-copy  GEMINI May 21 – June 20
The pace of life can be somewhere between stimulating to overwhelming, and especially from Wednesday you are prepared to step out of the darker annals of your very private space and into the outer world again. An adventure seems to be calling you fourth, could get exciting! This will be especially true next weekend, and a partner shows you the way. Certain avenues have not panned out as you expected meanwhile, and it might be time to pull the plug on an endeavor that is not moving forward.

july2-copy  CANCER June 21 – July 22
Financial matters are impacted by the eclipse this week and there can be big gains, or equally loss as a decision you made last August culminates. All will be clear by April and you can use information that arises this week to make critical adjustments where they are needed. You are learning greater self reliance, and there could be events occurring at this time that factor largely into the picture you are creating for yourself. You can make good choices from Wednesday onward, and Saturday is especially productive for reviewing your accounts.

aug2-copy  LEO July 23 – August 22
Leo is front and center of the eclipse activity and there can be some very kismet moments this week, especially in regard to a partnership. If you meet someone now, there will be a sense of fatedness and finding true love is possible. Communication within relationships remains highlighted over the coming weeks, and there will be some great opportunities to share your ideas one on one and express yourself. Attending events of mutual interest will provide the appropriate starting point for exciting dialogue.

sep2-copy  VIRGO August 23 – September 22
A position may be coming to an end for you, as you start to consider other avenues of employment. There is a busyness around your work life and you may be training to gain new skills. Meanwhile, a lot is emerging from your psychic space during the eclipse, and you may seek to withdraw temporarily to examine what is coming up around this time. Surrendering habits and especially vices that are counter productive will relieve enormous pressure for you. A work from home project or assignment can be very successful over next weekend.

oct2-copy  LIBRA September 23 – October 23
There are many comings and goings in this phase, people have a magical way of entering your life right now and over the coming weeks. Mutually there are people on their way out. The eclipse on Wednesday reveals just how important it is to be associated with the right crew so you can make your dreams come true. If you recently had to make a difficult personal decision, you will begin to see how this has set you free. Very exciting developments are occurring in this period, and you do your best to remain open to all the possibilities.

nov2-copy  SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
A significant professional trajectory you set out on last August is coming to a stunning culmination. The bolder you have been in seizing an opportunity, the more outsize the rewards will be now. If you find, rather, you have further to go still to reach an objective, this is the appropriate time to reorient yourself and get back on the road to success. Personal encounters feature undertones from the past, and some of these need to be released now in favor of creating that big bright future. Intuition is heightened now and you can get to the bottom of any problem as required.

dec2-copy  SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21
The eclipse speaks to your growing ambitions, and you definitely feel like you are spreading your wings. Events set into motion last August are propelled forward suddenly, and now with Saturn out of your sign, you have a lot more mojo to pursue personal goals and meet with success. Daily life is going through changes, you are likely cutting out a few activities that no longer sustain your interest. Meanwhile new associations are being formed and next weekend in particular is exciting if you are attending an event or party.

jan2-copy  CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
The financial axis is impacted by the current eclipse cycle, with huge sums either going in or out. This is all the manifestation of what you had set into motion late last Summer, and the rewards you receive now are only as big as the goals you set for yourself in that vital period. Fate is working overtime to create a good outcome, so don’t hesitate to consider any offer that comes your way. Personal and especially intimate relationships are effected in their own way, and if you aren’t in the midst of a very deep financial negotiation, it’s possible you are in the throws of a passionate love affair, or maybe both!

feb2-copy  AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Life is going through all sorts of transitions and changing in fundamental ways, making the next few weeks a very intense period. Events now have very fateful overtones, and especially in matters of partnership. It’s possible to stumble upon someone with whom you have an immediate and intense connection to. This whole week and over the next two, leading up to the next eclipse, occurring in your sign, is full of big punctuation marks that can set a new alliance into motion swiftly. Mercury from your sign beginning on Wednesday enables you to speak to your truth.

march2-copy  PISCES February 19 – March 20
There is a lot of subjective energy present in your forecast this week. It’s likely that you are saying goodbye and releasing templates of subconscious behavior that you have outgrown. Releasing these sets you free, enabling a far more heathy and productive lifestyle. Any new habits you established towards the end of last Summer, a work out routine or new diet, is yielding positive results and you can see much improvement. A new job may be around the corner and exciting news may reach you by the end of the week in some regard.

Weekly Forecast 1/21 – 1/27

Mercury is the major player this week, hooking up to Pluto and Jupiter and advancing the goals of the earlier part of the month, especially during the incredibly vitalizing period of January 6 – 10. Events that were initiated then are coming into view again and agreements and negotiations can take place which offer outcomes and forward movement to the topics aroused during those pivotal alignments.

Pluto is at large, conjuncting Mercury mid week and stimulating a very intense and potentially confrontational ambience. These two have not interacted since late October, and much of what has occurred since then was to clear the decks for the new agenda being set into motion now. Mercury is swift and logically oriented, while Pluto is slow, heavy and connected to the deepest, and darkest emotional, even pathological, instincts. Jupiter is supportive from Scorpio, which kinda just adds to the intensity, but also assures that new endeavors are enhanced with the potential for meaningful long range transformation.

Going back to the events or insights that occurred two weeks ago, if you were struggling with a decision or trying to get a project, relationship or otherwise off the ground, these Mercury aspects provide a template enabling the articulation and clarity required to move forward. This aspect can have a bit of a bite to it, and conflict may stimulated where matters of power and the balance of that power is implicated. A harsh situation could suddenly become prominent and will have to be contended with. Pluto demands for change, and depending on your temperament and how this affects you, this can be a moment of reckoning long overdue.

The Quarter Moon Wednesday morning raises the stakes even higher. From 4’ Taurus, the objectives of last weeks Capricorn New Moon are reemphasized and move forward. This makes Wednesday a very pivotal and significant day, and with the Quarter Moon lined up perfectly with Capricorn Saturn a rather serious tone underscores the activities of the day. There is a desire to move forward on long range goals and aspirations and new order is being established. It’s ok to do so, but maybe smaller, modest steps should be considered in light of the Leo Lunar Eclipse occurring next week, which has the potential to shake up everything you lay groundwork for now. A wait and see approach may be wise for the time being.

Friday morning Mars is reborn in outgoing and optimistic Sagittarius, leaving the subterranean depths and emotional quagmire of Scorpio behind it. A great deal of inner personal transformation has occurred. From Scorpio, Mars learned of its darkest desires and tendencies. Much has been relinquished and a catharsis come complete. From Sagittarius, a desire to explore, learn and develop idealism and through inspirational activities will prevail through mid March. Here we find the Tarot Card: Temperance, indicating a unification of polarities (Gemini.) Energy is now focused and directed outwardly and it is a favorable period for cultivating and developing ideas that will manifest from mid March onward when Mars transits Capricorn.

This is the first transit of Mars since Saturn left the sign, and there is impulse towards renewal where a situation has calcified and stagnated. Potential is granted here for a complete redo on a situation that has been outgrown, simply remove the blockages and breath out with optimism towards new outcomes. The Archer is setting it’s aim.

You are much more at ease this week, especially when Sagittarius Mars stimulates you to come out of any shell you might have been hiding under and take a place in the Sun.

By Sunday afternoon the Moon joins the Capricorn stellium, becoming the 6th major celestial body to reside in the sign of the Goat. Capricorn is attributed to the mostly misunderstood tarot card The Devil, which represents procreative energy, vitality, humor, sensuality, sexuality, creativity and individuality*. Energy is percolating towards the New Moon on Tuesday, and a major enterprise or initiative associated with the mastery of the physical world occurs during this vitalizing Lunation.

This is enhanced enormously by the Jupiter – Pluto sextile, exact on Monday 11:13p EST. Regeneration is now possible and power struggles endured during the square aspect (finalized during the first week of last August, 2017) now provide new pathways of exploration and growth. It’s a very rewarding culmination for those challenges overcome, and both the spiritual and material realms are positively impacted. It is possible, where determination and hard work prevailed despite uncertainty, to attract abundance on both the material and metaphysical planes.

The New Moon is square to Uranus, which makes for a very volatile atmosphere. From Capricorn there is an intense concentration of focus to carry out a very specific objective, Uranus can be the monkey wrench that throws the whole system out of whack. There may be a concerning issue to contend with unexpectedly, as Uranus destabilizes and serves as a reminder to keep a loose grip. Overall, though, this will be a very powerful time to move forward with an important objective.

From Wednesday, the atmosphere shifts substantially, as Venus and then the Sun (Friday) move into breezy and aloof Aquarius. Energy becomes more externalized and reaches out into more social avenues. What was serious and heavy a moment ago is now light hearted, seeking free outlets for expression and offering new interpretations that are novel or unconventional. Mercury remains in Capricorn for another 2 weeks, conducting the business and tying up any loose ends as it collaborates with Jupiter and Pluto to make the most of opportunities presented over these prior weeks. A change in environment and perspective are nonetheless due, and with some strong plans for the year having been set into motion, and eclipses on the horizon, 2018 is off and running to a pretty great start so far, hopefully for you, too!

STARSCOPES:

april2-copy ARIES March 20 – April 19
A huge confluence of energy impacts your professional sphere and a whole new life direction takes root during the New Moon on Tuesday. You may be made a bit uneasy with all the changes taking place, but given some time you will likely feel these were made for the best, at least where your future is concerned. From midweek forward the ambience changes significantly, as the pressurized climate shifts to a more socially oriented phase and you can connect with like minded people.

may2-copy TAURUS April 20 – May 20
The New Moon shines a light on the direction you want to take in life and broadening your horizons. It also shines a more uncomfortable beam on a secret habit you may have been trying to keep under wraps. This could be an indication it’s time to give up the ghost. Partnerships continue to grow in favorable directions, and early in the week is a positive time to make a commitment. From mid week your professional game starts to gain momentum, your reputation can soar over the coming weeks.

june2-copy GEMINI May 21 – June 20
With so many planets clustered in the mystery zone of your chart, you may feel lost out at sea. Let your inner compass guide you back to shore. Learning to trust your instincts, as well as perhaps another, is paramount to your evolution right now. Intimate bonds may be forged at this time, but is looks as though your social group does not approve of this union. Things improve immensely from midweek as Venus then the Sun enter Aquarius, sending you much improved mojo and luck in love.

july2-copy CANCER June 21 – July 22
There are incredibly dominant individuals in your midst, and the Capricorn Stellium, coupled with a New Moon on Tuesday, indicate relationships are reaching critical mass. Whether the tipping point tuns in your favor or not remains to be seen, but there will be unexpected developments no matter the outcome. From midweek the influences are a little less dynamic as the interpersonal matters ebb towards more financial considerations. Professional matters are also in frame, but can be disruptive.

aug2-copy LEO July 23 – August 22
Your work load keeps getting heavier and the New Moon Tuesday requires you draw some new lines in regard to your productivity, health and how much you can take on. Working from home will nonetheless prove especially rewarding at the beginning of the week. From Wednesday, your key partnership is emphasized and you can reconnect with those you love and rekindle the spark that brought you together in the first place. New contacts can be formed for those seeking union.

sep2-copy VIRGO August 23 – September 22
If there had been any uncertainty about jumping into a romantic relationship or creative project, the New Moon on Tuesday should provide a tipping point – time to unleash yourself with reckless abandonment. Is the world ready to see you for the hedonist you truly are? A palpable shift from mid week sees you back in work mode, scrutinizing the details and utilizing those critical and logical faculties again. There is a pleasant ambience among coworkers, maybe a flirtation.

oct2-copy LIBRA September 23 – October 23
The strong accent on your personal life grows stronger and you continue to derive a source of strength from the place where you stand. You also continue to develop the skills critical to nurturing yourself, which in turn enables the healing of childhood wounds. Great financial news could be on the radar early in the week. Pleasurable mojo for love and self expression shifts the tone from Wednesday, though a partnership may still prove disruptive, it’s easier to share love over the coming weeks.

nov2-copy SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
The words you choose and how you use them have the power to move mountains right now, so choose them carefully. You could just as equally blow to bits a project or agenda you have been working towards for quite some time, so keep the temper in check! Very harmonious energy in the beginning of the week sets the right tone. An agreement or contract is solid gold. From mid week you shift inwards, more personal matters take precedence and you’ll be up for some hibernation. Bear time!

dec2-copy SAGITTARIUS November 22 – December 21
Financial prospects are in the frame in a big way and the New Moon Tuesday could represent a whole new way of life for you. Be conscientious throughout any negotiations or interviews, as wild card Uranus throws a curve ball that could derail the whole proceeding. More social prospects return from mid week, and you will find pleasurable people and experiences all around you as you journey through your day to day. Expression of feelings will come easily.

jan2-copy CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
The sky view is a bit Capricorn heavy right now, suggesting you wield substantial power. The New Moon triggers a whole new way of life based on this model of the current snapshot of the universe and you can make tremendous strides in your personal endeavors. You stand to alienate helpful people in this period if you come across to full of yourself, so do exercise a moderation of restraint where possible. From midweek, financial matters gain importance, as good money mojo is stimulated.

feb2-copy AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Powerful professional developments are afoot at the beginning of the week, though a lot of the action continues to take place behind the scenes. The New Moon on Tuesday suggests it’s time to cultivate new rituals for relaxation and creating peaceful conditions for yourself. Reflection and release dominate this part of the cycle, you may make psychological discoveries, or simply enjoy quiet time or even solitude. From mid week, Venus graces your sign, the Sun follows on Friday, and you reenter the light.

march2-copy PISCES February 19 – March 20
Very dynamic influences continue to prevail in your social life and you could be in the company of some real heavy hitters this week. The New Moon suggests a new gold standard emerges in your social network and that you might be joining a club or organization. This hits you hard in the pocketbook, however, and dues or fees could be problematic. Quieter tendencies emerge from mid week and you seek to cultivate more privacy and introspection. Deep relaxation is possible over the next month.

MARS CONJUNCT JUPITER IN SCORPIO – GENESIS AND REGENERATION

The year is off to a big BANG BANG with a Full Moon in Cancer on the 1st followed quickly the next day by Uranus returning to direct motion. The Full Moon will likely be emotional, though buttressed by Jupiter and Neptune in a Grand Water Trine, the feelings aroused will likely be quite positive. An opposition to Saturn early in the morning serves to remind of limitations and responsibility, (double difficulty to negotiate if you are hung over, so definitely a better idea to limit the holiday cheer!) and while it may feel as though you are widdling your way through a dark granite cave with a popsicle stick at the onset, the somber mood dissipates quickly, hang in there!

Uranus direct portends the regeneration of the revolutionary and desire to liberation. Uranus will be in shadow until mid April, so until then it’s about finding opportunities to integrate the changes that have been sought after, not necessarily breaking new ground in the quest for independence. (Check both the house in your chart ruled by Uranus as well as the current house being transited for the areas that are stimulated in this period.) By April, Uranus will be poised to make its momentous move into Taurus in May, and it will be possible to forge new currents of activity associated with a cause, personal or societal.

From Taurus, what is valued, usually (but not exclusively limited to) material resources and other assets, are highlighted, and the world is likely to see dramatic changes in economic policy. The success of Bitcoin and other forms of Crypto-currency precede this shift in social consciousness, indicating that the transition to the digitization (Uranus) of money (previously a tangible asset, such as dollars and coins,) is already well under foot. Between now and April 2026, expect to see even bigger developments.

Sun, then Venus harmonize with Neptune (Pisces) from Capricorn, and a soft romantic ambience prevails. Creativity is equally stimulated, making Tuesday and Wednesday really nice days to make or take in art or music, or stroll a beautiful garden with the one you love, assuming you live somewhere that the weather is conducive for it! The to and fro of the prior Mercury retrograde phase is coming to resolution, on Saturday the third and final Mercury – Uranus trine occurs, followed a week later by the final conjunction to Saturn. This brings to conclusion a matter that began in late November, as the Saturn – Uranus trine was hemmed in closely to the storyline of the Mercury retrograde cycle. At this point the final pieces of the jigsaw are being moved into place, and by next week, voila! Something manifests that you have been working towards for weeks, and from Capricorn (Mercury conjunct Saturn, Saturday the 13th,) new goals are set as a result.

Mars will square the Nodal Axis midweek, triggering a sense of incompletion, coupled with a feeling of loss over the adjustments that have been made since last August, during the prior eclipse cycle. As Mars moves towards its retrograde in Aquarius, and the three contacts it makes to the South Node this year, that feeling of loss may prevail over a strong sense of advancement. Certain sacrifices must be made in order to accommodate development and there will be several reminders of this through September. Early Thursday morning, Moon conjuncts the North Node and there is renewed hope in what the future will provide. Pay attention to your intuition at this time as it will provide a strong indication of what might occur during the Leo Eclipse at the end of the month and the Aquarius eclipse that follows in February. Trust that destiny will guide you to the appropriate shore.

Saturday is by far the most dynamic as a once in two year conjunction of Mars to Jupiter takes place in Scorpio. This initiates a new cycle of dynamic expansion and the actions that will be taken to achieve it. From Scorpio this could be occurring deep within or behind closed doors. Scorpio has a tendency to keep itself shielded, making this a somewhat uncomfortable placement for all this out, Yang energy, which will be trapped within the Scorpions’ shell. It’s definitely going to be felt, just not really dealt with out in the open. The last cycle occurred in mid October 2015 at 13 Virgo (equally awkward) and the next will be in March 2020 at 22 Capricorn (in close proximity to Pluto, yikes a bit?). This is one of the biggest stimulators of mojo and pure life energy, so it could be just a well that the mojo raised is through a deeply intimate and cathartic encounter. There is incredible intensity present at this moment of genesis, and gears shift, stimulating a whole new and highly passionate and regenerative form of taking action.

It’s a very important week for your personal life, very strong emotions are being aroused on the homestead and there could come a breaking point between your familiar duties and professional aspirations. Events behind the scenes have a corresponding connection to these events, and a change in locale or residence may be required of you to make the jump in your career. Potent forces and an agreement have a dramatic impact on your finances this weekend, there are erotic undertones, so a spouse, current or potential may be at the crux of this. A personal or educational goal that got way sided last month gets back on track. By next week, the dust settles and you can move forward.

may2-copy   TAURUS April 20 – May 20
Your personal life is highlighted and your best moments this week will be spent with friends and comrades.

june2-copy  GEMINI May 21 – June 20
Your personal issues continue to dissipate, and difficulties you encountered in connecting with your partner last month subside. Conversations you have this coming weekend as well as next will set the record straight. Enjoy some enticements early in the week to set the stage. Dropping a sweet (or sexy) note or text could get someone back on board quicker than you think. The Neptune alignments early in the week have beneficial connotations for you professionally. Meetings behind the scenes play a role in reaching a cherished goal. Monday offers you a culminating moment financially, which holds mostly good news, a vexing influence regarding shared economy, perhaps outstanding debt could be a bit of a damper. Examine your commitments.

july2-copy   CANCER June 21 – July 22
A Full Moon in your sign infuses you with passion and excitement for the New Year. You are also likely evaluating your closest commitments and the state of these, whether good or bad, will be a big part of your story over the next 12 – 36 months. If you don’t like what you see, it may be time to wipe the slate clear and start over. On the contrary, you may come to realize the depth and strength your partnership has provided with you, a very reassuring thought, for sure. Very romantic moments early in the week add to the feeling of being very loved, and you may be planning a voyage of sorts, (if so aim for the end of 2018). Passion prevails on Saturday, creativity and pleasure are highlighted and guide you for the coming 2 years. You’ll also be untangling knots on the job. Concerns and delays dissipate.

aug2-copy   LEO July 23 – August 22
Your personal and spiritual live is awakened at the onset of the year, and you are likely to derive the greatest pleasure in quiet reflection or in the company of those with whom you are closest and can share your innermost thoughts. The Full Moon stimulates your sensitivity and imagination, as well as intuition. There could be endings, perhaps someone is leaving home. Following your hunches is advised throughout the week, and the Moon from your sign beginning early Wednesday morning amplifies this. A creative or recreational matter that had gone sideways last month gets back on track from next weekend into the following. A supercharged moment regarding your residence stimulates a two year phase of deep transformation. Go for what you want.

sep2-copy   VIRGO August 23 – September 22
There is a lot of pleasurable energy aroused in your forecast, from New Years day you start to appraise a significant love relationship, and with luck you have the good fortune to connect with the object of your affection mid week, when pleasure mojo is at it’s strongest peak. The elusive nature of this connection can be explored, and if you find you prefer to daydream about this person than to connect IRL, maybe this is an appropriate time to consider why. If you are holding back from contact, it could be because this person might not actually live up to your expectations, or mutually that you won’t live up to theirs. Residential and family entanglements that have put you at odds since late November get resolution this coming Saturday with a solid plan in place in another weeks time. This is also a good time to make your case, what ever it be. You have the power to convince practically anyone of anything.

oct2-copy   LIBRA September 23 – October 23
Professional matters or a long range plan are highlighted over the Full Moon phase on New Years day. Developments enhance your financial standing (in a very lucrative development) and put you at ease regarding your daily tasks and work schedule. You can afford to show a bit more creative flair at work this week as well, though from mid week attention turns to more social matters, friends will call on you. A powerful financial development next weekend sets you on the trail of building your assets, which you do by demonstrating your savvy and passion mutually. May 2019 reveals the outcome of the mission you put into motion now. A contractual agreement you have sought after since late November could be instrumental, by next Saturday you could be signing the dotted line.

nov2-copy   SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
The horoscope favors Scorpio this week as immeasurable, but unseen forces, guide you back to your inner compass and self awareness of what you are ready to move towards allows you to shed skins that have been holding you back for many years. Not unlike the butterfly emerging from a chrysalis, you are in a major moment of personal rebirth. While this remains a theme for the weeks and year to come, a major development next Saturday catapults you into motion. The shift between who you are and who you are becoming has a great deal with opening your perspective (and heart) to the world around you. You will find yourself more and more able to reveal yourself and this also has a positive effect on your love life. Sharing your feelings makes a huge impact and boosts romantic prospects early in the week.

dec2-copy   SAGITTARIUS November 22 – December 21
Private and personal matters are of the upmost concern for you during this period, galvanized by a Full Moon in one of the most secretive areas of your horoscope on New Years Day. Your sensitivity can be enhanced as certain elements of life come to an end. This has financial connotations as well, and you might be resolving a shared financial matter or coming to terms with a bank, business parter or even divorce. An upturn in available assets will enable you to realize a cherished dream regarding your home. From Saturday, vexing personal issues that have been squirrly since late last November start to be resolved and in another weeks time, you will be ready to move forward with much more assurance. This is a great time to take up a meditation or therapy practice.

jan2-copy   CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
Powerful forces are at work this week, putting you in the spotlight, but equally casting light on your social network and key committed relationships. The Full Moon on New Years triggers a lot of emotional energy, while aspecting Saturn, recently ingressed to your sign, you have to evaluate the push – pull dynamics within a certain association. You know deep down it’s time to get down to business, but someone is pulling your heart strings, making that somewhat difficult to do. You can express your feelings romantically (or poetically, maybe through artistry,) in the beginning of the week, making this a great time for a heart to heart. Pay attention to clues early Thursday, especially where intimacy and financial relationships are concerned as these will have a dramatic implication at the Leo Eclipse at the end of the month. Powerful developments on Saturday set you on the course of your aspirations. Someone aids you on the way.

feb2-copy   AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
The axis of physical health vs spiritual health is a factor this week, and the way in which daily tasks your work and productivity affect your mental health will require some evaluation. This becomes abundantly clear right on New Years day. Perhaps you were hoping for some R+R, but get called into work last minute, and this puts you into a bad head space all day, forcing you to draw a line. You could just be seeing the culmination or putting the finishing touches on a big project or assignment and realize it’s time for a break. Quieter moments prevail in the following days, so enjoy them as from Wednesday, relational matters come to focus. Saturday holds a major professional development, and you are ready to go for it with everything you have.

march2-copy   PISCES February 19 – March 20
You find yourself in a very symbiotic environment this week, stimulated towards personal pleasure and excitement for the future. The Full Moon shines light on your desires, and an atmosphere perfect for connecting to someone with true love potential or taking a relationship to the next level is quite possible. This contact triggers your most heart felt dreams and the following days are highly conducive for developing a romantic bond. A vexing professional situation or setbacks you have experienced since lat November (perhaps just uncertainty over where you sought to go to next in your career or life path) see resolution from next weekend and into the next. You feel ready to move forward. Powerful developments signal you have the strength to get to where you want to go.

SOLSTICE SCOPES – SUN IN CAPRICORN

Happy Winter Solstice Stargazers! It’s a busy and bustling time of year, but we have reached the ingress of Saturn into Capricorn, heading this way late Tuesday night (EST). Winter Solstice (Sun ingress into Capricorn) follows a few days later, with Sun conjoining Saturn on Thursday, basically crystallizing the goals of the next three years right off the bat. As a Cap myself, I decided it was the appropriate evolutionary manifestation of this transit to get my Goat game on and apply to business school. (I’m starting a production company, an unrelated venture to my work here on Stargazer.) So I applied to a 12 week online program at Harvard Business School and was accepted! 😁 Amazing. I’m starting in January and have been working, literally, every day to save up so I can work as little as necessary while I do my course work. So no time for an essay this week, but you can read my previous essay about the Saturn – Capricorn transit using the link. Subscribers on Patreon can also access the extended forecast, which features the daily aspects with the time + an interpretation. Mercury is direct at 13′ Sagittarius from Friday night, EST! Have a great week! xoxo Stargazer

STARSCOPES 12/17 – 12/23

april2-copy  ARIES March 20 – April 19
Professional matters become paramount over the coming month (and years), and you will likely see yourself narrowing your focus down to one or two really crucial prospects and honing your skills and resume to make a bigger impact in your industry. From Friday, the path is clearing and the future seems brighter than ever. It will be hard work that pays off in the long run, so choose that path carefully, it’s going to be with you for a while. Flirtation mid week could be a nice respite from an otherwise busy and hard working season.

MAY2 copy  TAURUS April 20 – May 20
Prickly financial matters finally desist, you can make headway by the end of the week as the emphasis shifts from how you share resources with others and the expectations and levels of trust engendered in those associations. Longer range and more personal goals gain in significance, and setting dates in the diary for an expedition or adventure, possibly returning to school could factor over the next few years as you desire to dedicate yourself to expanding your circle of awareness and eventually influence.

june2-copy  GEMINI May 21 – June 20
A period of meaningful consideration of what, and who, is appropriate for you to establish and maintain a meaningful relationship subsides. From the “get real” New Moon Monday and even more so from Friday (when Mercury directs motion), all the consideration and mixed messages of the prior months or even years clears the way, and you feel more certainty regarding a decision to stay or to split or to reconsider the rules of engagement. A flirtation mid week could set the stage, revealing what you want in the balance of freedom and intimate exchange.

july2-copy  CANCER June 21 – July 22
Partnership is a big topic and you could find over the coming days, months and even years that you are in a period of major reassessment of your goals and expectations where relationships are concerned. For this reason, your one on ones could either get more serious or break up, if it can grow with you and the awareness you encounter about your own desires, wants and needs, then it will last, but those that can’t won’t likely survive this period. Thursday is pivotal and sets the tone for the next three years.

aug2-copy  LEO July 23 – August 22
There is pleasure to be had for Leo this week, Wednesday in particular is good for socializing and holiday parties or get togethers. From Friday the air clears in regard to a romantic alliance and your self expression in general. From this decluttered space you will find significant emphasis turning to work, health and productivity and how they all collaborate to create a lifestyle you can, well, live with. Disciple could be required in this period to learn techniques that make you harder better faster stronger. Look to Thursday for a revealing indication of where this is heading.

sep2-copy  VIRGO August 23 – September 22
Tough Love or True Love, that is the question. Having sorted out your more personal and private dynamics, you stand to gain enormously through devotion to your creative output, maybe even sealing the deal in a love relationship is on the horizon? It will take time and effort, but slow and steady wins this race. Thursday is highly revealing of what to expect, and a defining moment in which your desires become more defined. This unfolds over the coming weeks, months and years, with an incredible culmination in about a years time.

oct2-copy  LIBRA September 23 – October 23
Your moving into the base of yourself, there where and how you take care of yourself via your emotional and personal space. This could involve a move or purchase of property, but regardless of the shape it takes, it’s about building a foundation you can stand on. Pluto has brought disruption and even destruction to this area, and it’s time to get real about taking responsibility for restructuring this element of life and putting some girders in place so you have some much needed footing. Define a goal on Thursday and move forward.

nov2-copy  SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
As the financial intensity of the last few years finally washes away you can finally start to reap some of the rewards of Jupiter being in your sign. The New Moon Monday sets a serious tone, though you are best to wait until Friday to make a move. From there the ambience is less complicated and through the first weeks of January a very auspicious ambience conspires to provide you with pleasure and abundance. Your daily activities become more limited, and you may find yourself more withdrawn from social contacts. An idea requires structuring in order to be accomplished.

dec2-copy   SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21
You will feel an utterly palpable shift in ambience from late Tuesday/early Wednesday as Saturn shifts out of your sign. Directly following a New Moon in Sagittarius (Monday) energy patterns swiftly change gear, putting you back in the drivers seat of your life. Turn it out Wednesday, as your new found confidence proves to be quite charming to a romantic prospect. The next area of concern will be financial and resource management. By the end of the week you are on track to a whole new life. What you have learned over the last few years got you here, even if it seemed difficult at the time.

jan2-copy  CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
Close to midnight Tuesday (Eastern Time) Saturn, your ruling planet, re-enters your sign for the first time in 29 years. Being Cap, yours is one of the few signs that really benefits from the placement, which amplifies your ability to express your inherent ambition and perseverance. You’ll have several opportunities to reach your goals and redefine your image. Certainly the transit of Pluto (later Caps have still yet to experience this transit,) left you a bit adrift, Saturn will help you bring it all back together and consolidate in order to realize your passions. From Thursday, it’s go time.

feb2-copy  AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
There is a retiring feeling in your forecast, a sense that you want to withdraw from the hurly-burly and have quieter moments, maybe even in solitude. You will be spending the next few days, weeks and even years exploring the terrain of your innermost consciousness, so far beneath the surface you are hardly aware of it in your waking life. Down in there you will discover latent talents, fears and even hidden patterns of behavior that may be undermining your effectiveness. Once revealed, these can be eradicated, so be fearless! There is treasure in there too.

march2-copy  PISCES February 19 – March 20
You have undergone one of the most challenging professional periods you could have potentially endured, and likely accomplished something pretty amazing, even if was merely to survive the intense scrutiny of your peers! From here goals get more easy to accomplish, though you will likely experience some limitations socially while you steadily to achieve your dreams. A slimmer list of friends and alliances doesn’t mean you are unlikeable, either, just that you are choosing to cultivate relationships that foster your greatest expectations about life. A new path opens this week, and from Friday it gets much easier to clarify those desires.

MARS IN SCORPIO – 5 OF CUPS

The 5 of Cups Tarot Card is attributed to Mars in Scorpio, and here we experience the qualities of disappointment and even sorrow. Expectations have not been fulfilled and the Cups have fallen over, revealing imbalance. Beyond the Tarot interpretation, Mars in Scorpio reveals a depth of intensity, though this energy is felt internally, it requires a metamorphosis occur before it can experience rebirth and externalize through Sagittarius (from January 27th). Gerd Ziegler advises “I get to know my own reality by learning to see where I fool myself, or deny my inner voice”* which is within itself the complete essence of intuition. In most decks two cups do remain standing, offering a reminder there is still hope. The number five represents chaos and change. To the extent the Scorpio period can represent upheaval (and the aspects do not reflect that it will be particularly challenging,) there is hope. Look within and hone intuition, this will be the greatest gift this passage has to offer.

Collaborative activities are highlighted as both Mercury and Uranus play strong roles in the astrology of the week. Communication could still be a bit stifled with Mercury still transiting retrograde, however, though Sun – Mercury meet up on Tuesday at 21 Sagittarius, signaling the half way point of this cycle. An objective or agenda initiated around October 8th is indicated. This particular activity cycle began at 14’ Libra, and is now going through a period of reappraisal and modification.

Whatever was set into motion around that time is being reconfigured and events and awareness stimulated on Tuesday signals a turning point within this objective. At the time of the conjunction in October, Sun – Mercury were squaring Pluto, thus this particular cycle has been about resolving a long range issue involving a transformation, perhaps overcoming a difficult and oppressive obstacle or resolving a power struggle. The solution to the matter is to engage the liberating qualities of Uranus, which is highly present this week, aspecting both Mercury and Sun in harmonious trine. Where oppression once reigned, freedom has become the cure.

The 4th quarter Moon in Virgo this Sunday aspects Pluto by trine precisely, allowing the integration of this transformation to occur quite naturally. Each Moon phase represents a pivot point, and the 4th quarter is about release. It’s time to release an oppressive factor that is inhibiting growth and development. Empty the bowl so to speak.** What was integrated a week ago under the auspices of the Gemini Full Moon is in a process of resolution. During the Full Moon, Neptune was highlighted and an illusion (or delusion) was brought out into the open light of consciousness. Over the 4th Quarter, Venus squares Neptune, and again, evasive or escapist tendencies that have dissipated effectiveness are thrust into sharp relief. True love and vision will prevail, but where these topics have become mired in self destructive and deceptive energy, it’s time to clear the slate. No doubt Mars in Scorpio will have something to say about this.

Namaste people.

*Excerpt from Tarot, Mirror of the Soul, Handbook for the Aleister Crowley Tarot, 1988
**This can actually be a powerful moment for spell casting. A simple ritual with a bowl of water and meditation in which you release the painful and toxic energies of this last year into this water and pour it out can be an effective clearing tool. Try it!

WEEKLY STARSCOPES:

april2-copy  ARIES March 20 – April 19
You feel as though you are breaking out of a rut, a plan for the future is getting clearer in your mind and you can start to see some of the details coming into place. A key partnership may play a role in these developments. You’ll see things come to greater fruition in late January, for now you are in a more introspective and soul searching phase. Deep and regenerative transformation is taking place and this could be connected to an intimate relationship. Taking things to the next level now is likely.

may2-copy  TAURUS April 20 – May 20
Financial solvency is in sight and getting a few debts out of the way is very useful to you in these coming weeks. Developments, and maybe even a promotion, at work will enable this. Partnerships are heating up, Mars in the arena of your one to ones can offer a climate of conflict or passion in equal measure. There can be contentions with people who wish to dominate you. With Jupiter bringing blessings to this area, you are protected. This is a period of inner reflection for you, and intuition is strong. A dream may prove untenable or unrealistic. Time to let go if this is so.

june2-copy  GEMINI May 21 – June 20
There is a lot of activity, though perhaps mixed feelings about you know who, though events and conversations you have this week could prove defining for beginning to establish some kind of decision about your partnership. It’s still best to wait to seal the deal until January when all the facts are in, but there are important negotiations going on right now. A domestic or personal matter is highlighted early in the week and is an integral part of the solution you have been seeking since triggered by the Full Moon in your sign. A solution is in sight.

july2-copy  CANCER June 21 – July 22
Your work schedule continues to be hectic, assignments keep pouring in and there is much to keep you busy. You reach a point of closure or begin to see it around Tuesday. The projects and productivity you embrace now reveal good fortune at the end of the week could show signs of enormous growth and opportunity for expansion. The days leading up to this are very positive. You can express yourself to the one you love or find something new to explore. Passion rises Wednesday and Thursday. The next several weeks are ideal for nurturing love and creative prospects.

aug2-copy  LEO July 23 – August 22
Some financial pressures could be revealed this weekend, but perseverance on the job pays off for you in this phase, even if you had to deal with a tricky situation with a boss or colleague. A fun and dynamic phase for self expression, pleasure and love continues to unfold. A relationship that began somewhat casually a couple months ago could get a little more serious now. Look at events that unfold on Tuesday to reveal where a project or association is growing. Staying close to home and enjoying those you love on Wednesday and Thursday is ideal and fills you with joy. The home is an area of activity and transformation for you through January. A winter withdrawal could be on the cards.

sep2-copy  VIRGO August 23 – September 22
Expect the pace of daily life to pick up considerably, there is a lot going on right now, and many appointments and social events seem to fill your calendar. Meanwhile, a lot is going on in your domestic scene. There could be much activity or guests at your residence that brings a lot of energy into your home. The tough climate you endured and overcame over the past several years made this possible. Enjoy what you have and how far you have come. Events at the end of the week demonstrate how really positive this is.

oct2-copy  LIBRA September 23 – October 23
Daily life is full of exciting little adventures and get togethers. Coupled with the Moon in your sign from early Monday, this stands to be a very fun week! Negotiations also go well, and while it’s ill advised (with Mercury retrograde) to sign that dotted line just yet, you may see some positive developments in regard to a contract or agreement. A partnership matter that has been through the ups and downs could finally click, in the right way, on Saturday. Your mind on your money, money on your mind from now through the end of January. Jupiter collaborates for a fabulous and beneficial new source of revenue for you.

nov2-copy  SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
Mars in your sign stimulates you to take on as much as possible and go for your desires in unprecedented ways. Jupiter in cahoots makes this one of the most positive and productive periods you’ve had in many, many years. The caveat, here though, is taking things too far and this especially applies to matters of desire (sex/love/money/power) for whatever gets you off. Just because you can and you should doesn’t mean you have to, and you are better off using all the advantage you have now to create something deep and resonant, like you, not just a superficial facade of what you think getting what you want looks like. Finances improve.

dec2-copy  SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21
It’s an exciting period for your tribe and particularly from Friday as the Moon transits your sign, making enticing links, enhancing your high spirits. If there is something to celebrate it’s the last week of Saturn in your sign, and with the end of a long period of maturation under intense pressure in sight, you feel prepared to cast aside the shackles and cut loose. A personal realization on Tuesday gives you a sense of direction and purpose that may have been absent over the prior weeks. Appealing prospects over the weekend provide the perfect avenue to check out what’s in store. Gestating your changes is advised through late January.

jan2-copy  CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
Much is still percolating behind the scenes, in your minds’ eye, imagination and subconscious. This can make you somewhat vulnerable, as your intuition and empathic channels are heightened, making you more receptive to negative influences and vibrations. To the extent possible, this is a positive phase for privacy, gestation and renewal. You are a week off the entrance of Saturn into your sign, and a huge task will soon be at hand. This one you have been working for, and this week into the beginning of next is ideal for resting and preparing for that moment. A de ja vous or insight Tuesday is very revealing. Tune in.

feb2-copy  AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Socially this is a very exciting time for you, many contacts, and connecting with those you have not in many Moons can be very exhilarating. From Friday there is a vibrant atmosphere suitable for connecting with your crew and compadres. Feelings of love, romantic or otherwise, could be strong with your friends as the week comes to closure. Professionally you start to get cues mid week that this is no ordinary period in the evolution of your career and it’s time to get a fire under you to get moving on your objectives. It could be a bit of a wonky start with Mercury retrograde for 2 more weeks, but there are brilliant opportunities lying in store. Start to dream big about where you want to go next and get ready for action.

march2-copy  PISCES February 19 – March 20
You are much more at ease with Mars in a water sign, energy levels have risen in just the right measure to be stimulating without creating burnout or stress. The desire to take in more and experience life to the fullest is also coming into view, especially from Wednesday you likely start to seek new vistas to cross over. Meanwhile there is a great deal of activity present in your professional realm, coalescing towards the end of the week. On Tuesday you may realize an idea or contact you had previously established but lost contact with could actually be viable and take you in a positive direction. A lucrative new source of revenue attached to this is possible by the weekend. Keep your ears open for opportunities.

There is an essential sense of needing to get reorganized this month, as Mercury retrogrades in Sagittarius and a long range objective (Saturn) of the last few years (since 2015, more or less,) seeks resolution. Mercury is instrumental, and although it does go to and fro, it does so in order make sure the job gets done right, and that nothing is left by the wayside. Saturn and Uranus remain close companions through next Summer, a collaboration that began exactly one year ago and involves finding new ways to solve old problems is continuing to get tweaked, modified and made better, more innovative. This year was the idea generating phase of the cycle, the prelude to Summer 2018, when these two connect through Earth signs, thus manifesting the concepts developed over this prior year.

Mercury throughout it’s retrograde cycle makes three full contacts to both planets. This enables the articulation of the intention of these disparate energetic fields. Mercury can almost be seen as an intermediary between them, gathering information from one, ushering it off to the other, which suggests some kind of negotiation or deal is being struck. If you consider the almost inimical nature of these two planets (conservatism/radicalism) it’s clear to see why such a compromise must be made before they can work together effectively. Using the dates below a sort of pattern emerges, Mercury and Uranus cook up an idea, then Saturn reality checks it, to see if it can really work, (twice). Then Uranus makes some modifications, and a final check occurs January 13th, and something pretty big manifests at this time. Make a note of these dates and see how it works out for you!

November 25 – Mercury trine Uranus
28 – Mercury conjunct Saturn
December 6 – Mercury (RX) conjunct Saturn
10 – Mercury (RX) trine Uranus
January 6 – Mercury trine Uranus
13 – Mercury conjunct Saturn (2’ Capricorn)

It is of incredible significance the third aspect occurs in Capricorn, as it suggests what is being brought into being is tangible and has moved beyond the idea phase into something that can be implemented in reality. Whatever the Mercury retro cycle throws at you this month (and it’s a pretty mild one overall) just bear with it and gather information and facts with an eye to mid January for a successful outcome. Venus, incidentally, joins the conversation as well, trine Uranus on the 20th and conjunct to Saturn on the 25th. This suggests we get help through relationships or material resources that assist the efforts at hand.

Sagittarius oversees the festivities of the month, which is appropriate for the holiday season. With Sun, Mercury and Venus in the jovial and optimistic sign, there is much to celebrate, particularly after what has mostly been a worrisome and difficult year. Mars enters Scorpio on the 9th, bringing a more intensified overtone to the atmosphere, but at least cosmetically the ambience should essentially be bright and cheerful. With Mars in Scorpio, there will be reminders that something needs to be dealt with, something essential is going through transformation. This transit can be a catalyst for immense personal discovery, especially in the context of an intimate relationship. Jupiter in Scorpio assists in maintaining confidence and objectivity, meanwhile, and especially during the beautifully harmonious Jupiter – Neptune trine at the beginning of the month, a deeply engrained feeling of peace and spiritual richness prevails.

The elephant in the room is of course the dynamic shift of Saturn into Capricorn on the 19th. This transit lasts through mid December 2020. Saturn represents an area of critical concentration and the necessity to materialize a goal or objective. It requires structure, discipline and patience to succeed at this and it can appear to be insurmountable at the beginning. To master Saturn is the essence of perseverance itself. Take things in tiny chunks, one little morsel at a time, but with the utmost of consistency. It’s practice that over time yields perfection and from Capricorn this is incredibly amplified.

Here you are looking at the placement of Capricorn in the personal chart as this will become the primary point of emphasis. Saturn first brings the issue of the matter to attention, usually by generating strife or anemic conditions around a topic that requires dramatic restructuring. While these periods can be fraught with challenges, they are meant to test the resilience of an area of life that could use a bit of bolstering. Pluto having recently transited this area over these last few years likely left it asunder, thus the Saturn transit might be precisely what is required to rehabilitate and restore in a specific area, just remember to build with stone, because plaster will crumble.

For what it’s worth, Saturn gets help. Jupiter and Uranus will both connect advantageously, generating a climate of support and growth, and there are no harsh or antagonistic beams coming in from other quarters. One of the harder things to manage with this placement is to take things all too seriously. The flip on Capricorn and what is most misunderstood about this sign is it’s hidden desire to play. While you are likely called upon to be purposeful and act with integrity, so long as you live up to that, there is little else to worry about about. Genuinely invest yourself in an outcome and attend to your work with the level of attention that is required of you. It may be hard at first if discipline is not your thing, but over time, it gets easier.

Have a great month and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

DECEMBER STARSCOPES:

april2-copy   ARIES: March 20 – April 19

Travel is beneficial for you, though you might be hitting some difficulties or going back to places you are already familiar with through the last week of the month. The 15th, 16th and 20th are positive for a journey, maybe not as far as you had thought though. From the 21st, Saturn begins a long and meaningful transit of your arena of profession, demanding you take a new mantle of responsibility in order to achieve your highest ambitions. Events on the 21st and 25th will signal precisely what that will entail, and a partner may be the one who points it out to you. Mars from the 10th begins a transit through which you will transform as a close relationship mutates meaningfully, and you will be far more sensitized emotionally though the end of next January. Awareness and intuition on the 2nd highlight the road ahead.

may2-copy  TAURUS: April 20 – May 20

Shared finances could be in frame with a bit of confusion over the first few weeks regarding accounts or payments. The New Moon on the 18th offers a resolution or pact. The commitment you make is binding here, but you are ready. Those recently married could be trying to manage the intricacies of a joint account. When Mercury is direct from the 23rd, all falls into place. A great deal of passion is present in the relationship, while Mars transits Scorpio from the 9th. The 2nd and 28th are wondrous and magical. Vibrations are so strong between you and this person, and you can communicate effortlessly. On December 20th, Saturn moves into Capricorn, bestowing you with maturity and helping you bring structure into your life easily. The long range choices you make over the next few years will bring you to the pinnacle of your profession in 2020.

june2-copy  GEMINI: May 21 – June 20

Look to a very significant development in your work and professional life on the 2nd. Your creativity is blossoming and you could see a promotion as a result of remaining true to a vision only you could see. Mercury retrogrades in your area of committed relationships and there may be a reassessment or potentially a brief separation from your partner this month. Venus here will provide a loving ambience, and you will soon feel assured of the feelings of the one you love. The Full Moon on the 3rd falls in your sign, offering you incredible perspective on how far you have gone this year. Two weeks later, the New Moon begins a new chapter in your partnership. With Saturn leaving this area a few days later, the doors are open to a meaningful commitment. The self awareness you encountered over the last two years, while at times uncomfortable, has given you incredible maturity that can now be applied to a satisfying and enduring bond with your mate. Happy New Year!

Mars enters your pleasure sector on the 10th, and romance goes even deeper as you enter a new phase of activity or recreation. There is great desire to self expression, (a trend that really gets emphasized over the first two weeks of the New Year!) and opportunities emerge on the 2nd, 6th and 28th. Connect to a visionary source, and be diligent in your efforts. Work and professional attainment are also in frame, with very valuable opportunities on the 10th, 12th, 15th, 16th, and 20th to make a good impression through a positive approach to your work or an assignment. A new position can be on offer around the 18th, with the specifics coming more into focus from the 23rd, when Mercury is direct. Relationships get really serious after the 21st, as a pivotal change takes place when Saturn moves into Capricorn. This transit will ask you to explore the real validity of your partnerships, and there can be upheaval and change where a connection is no longer satisfying or able to move forward to the next stage of commitment. Events on the 21st and 25th signal these changes immediately, though much more is in store over the next 2 years.

feb2-copy  AQUARIUS: January 20 – February 18

This is a great time to catch up with old friends, especially if you have been too busy to keep up over the last year. Sun, Venus and Mercury all enhance your ties and there are good times to be had on the 6th, 10th, 15th, 16th and 20th. Mars activates and energizes your professional arena beginning on the 10th, an influence that carries through the end of January. Creativity and determination conspire to bring you success in this phase, especially around the 2nd, 6th and 28th. A visionary ideal seems to guide you and there is a strong sense of intuition prevailing. From December 21st you may seek respite from the demands of the outside world, as a transit of Saturn in Capricorn demands the appraisal of and restructuring of your own inner dominion. This 2-3 year transit will have you seeking a degree of privacy in order to deal with a confrontation of your own subconscious. Where matters have become unruly (Pluto inhabits this area, stirring up some weird psycho dramas for you,) you will now seek to understand and bring order to your spiritual dimension, discipline and meditation could lead the way to a profound healing. The 21st and 25th offer significant developments and these are appropriate times to seek the help you feel you might need.

march2-copy  PISCES: February 19 – March 20

It’s a great month for you professionally, and goals are finally within reach. A Mercury retrograde will stall progress through the end of the month, so you are still feeling things out where a promotion or new position is being negotiated. A New Moon on the 18th followed by Saturn’s exit from this area on the 20th signals a real change is possible now. A long standing way of life comes to an end and you release a burden this month. A new frontier is open and you get a strong indication on the 2nd of where you ideally would like to head next. Tie up loose ends and make arrangements on the 6th, 10th, 12th, 15th, 16th and 20th. Some of these are ongoing, but schedule meetings and see what is on offer. All the pieces will fall into place shortly. Saturn in Capricorn will be a more productive period for you, as the pressure of the last few years lifts, you can make progress and build alliances that will serve you in the future. The 28th is quite magical and ideal for making a wish come true. A magnificent period is unfolding for you, and so much of what you leave behind in the first few months of the year play a role in your success.
