Stargazer Weekly Forecast 1/13 – 19

PRACTICAL THINKING

Mercury from Capricorn makes incredibly productive aspects this week, setting a business endeavor on track and enhancing all negotiations. Look at the 13th, 15th and 19th for the most significant developments. Mid week is especially crucial, as Mercury transits the degree of the recent Capricorn Eclipse (January 5th) and an enterprise is discussed in critical detail. Something emerges from Tuesday into Wednesday that enables forward movement on whatever was initiated last weekend. The eclipse opened a portal of potential and this week Mercury will articulate the goals and how to accomplish them. 

Some of this is going to be super harsh and demanding since Saturn and Pluto are involved. It could be time to pay the piper! At it’s best, while the current climate is severe, it provides an opportunity to resolve serious long range issues by confronting them head on. An important objective can also be clarified. A detached disposition is helpful here, as well as a willingness to sacrifice what is inessential. Neptune sends in a gentle and compassionate love light and some inspiration that softens the intensity of other developments. 

Venus and Mars collaborate from Sagittarius to Aries, so there is an exciting, sexy and enticing ambience underscoring everything else that transpires this week. Imagination, creativity and a sense of adventure – especially where you have never dared to tread – feature largely in these stars. This is obviously occurring in stark contrast to the Mercury vibes, perhaps the negotiation that is materializing is in order to make a fun project or relationship viable. 

Jupiter enters it’s retrograde shadow degree at 14’ Sagittarius this week, and will retrace these steps between now and early November. From now to April 10th, (when the retrograde begins,) the opportunity exists to make a lot of progress, then revise as necessary through the Summer. With this process framed by the Jupiter – Neptune square, inspiration is a guiding light, though there could be some form of deception underscoring an endeavor. Tread carefully and stay strong this week! ✊🏽 

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

You feel passionate, motivated even, though career matters command a lot of your attention and appraisal this week. It’s a great time to make a plan (and stick to it!) while communication is focused on your future. Some steps will be retraced through the Summer, but for the time being you have the potential to build your reputation and upgrade your professional position. Love is on your mind. Reach out and touch someone, even if they are far, far away.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

You are likely planning for the future, and very much aware of the sacrifices or hard work ahead of you required to get there. This is a good week for planning and thinking through an objective that will get you on track. Meanwhile, your inner workings and most private experiences offer insights that enable you to release debilitating habits or beliefs that have been stifling your effectiveness. A close partner is likely the catalyst for this realization.  

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

The social life is dynamic and stimulating, and a partnership seems to be going especially well. Finding someone who shares your hopes and dreams is possible now. Potential is high from this week into next. At the same time, some serious financial appraisals are likely now, particularly where you may rely upon the resources of another. A commitment of some sort is being made, just make sure you can live with what you agree to, as these are binding and definite.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

You may address some heavy topics within your partnership this week, and it’s possible an understanding or accord is reached. An early version of a negotiation gets scrapped for something bigger and better. Something is sacrificed along the way. Professionally this is a brilliant period, and this week into next provide your best potential in a decade to realize a work or career dream that fills your daily life with excitement and creativity.      

LEO July 23 – August 22

Romance and creativity are highlighted, and especially where someone or something might take you to a distant place you will discover exquisite pleasures. Things could be a bit more hard going at work, as there could be conflicts with colleagues, clients or the boss. An assignment you are given could be incredibly detailed if not outright difficult. You get through this by tapping into the inner resources of imagination and enjoying the spicy recreational aspects love is offering you this week. 

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

You are in the process of making a serious commitment where love is concerned. On the other hand if you are looking around and you find yourself alone, it could be time to accept you need to make some changes. On a more personal level this is a very satisfying time and this into next week could see you making substantive progress in your domestic life, perhaps moving or even purchasing a house. Those most familiar to you provide incredible comfort.       

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Domestic reorganization is required, though you can make exceptional progress on longstanding issues if you confront reality and let go of the past. Whatever was is no longer, and this crucial understanding is the way out of an endemic situation. The love light is burning bright and could actually provide the inspiration to make certain changes. From this week into next, you have some of the best prospects in a decade to establish an incredible partnership.   

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

A critical negotiation or contract is in frame this week, and you are likely nailing down the details on this one throughout the week. Something of remarkable significance comes to fruition over the first week of next month, this is the time to handle the details. A financial/professional upswing also holds positive potential and cues this week are only a fragment of what is in store leading into next week’s dynamic eclipse, driving home the ambitions you have nurtured over the last year and a half.

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22 – Dec 21

It’s a phenomenal week for your most personal visions to come to life and fruition, a trend that continues right through next week’s brilliant Lunar Eclipse in Leo. A cherished wish is about to be granted. More concerning are critical financial matters and you might have to face the music where your resources are concerned. Consulting an advisor can be very useful here. In any regard, an important discussion or handling routine paperwork is a requirement this week.    

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19 

You are busy making sure your voice is heard in important negotiations this week, though maintaining a sense of humor keeps things from getting too heavy and benefits your position immeasurably. Events mid week in particular accelerate a narrative you have attempted to put into motion since the Jan. 5 eclipse in your sign. These will get locked down in early February, keep at it. Personal life is stimulating and provides immense satisfaction.   

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

You are dealing with critical matters (and messages) from behind the scenes. Your intuition is off the charts sensitized and it will be easier than ever to read between the lines. Socially this is a highly fruitful period and from this week into next, coalescing into the Full Moon Leo Eclipse next week, which could significantly change your relationship status. A resolution to the events of the prior year and a half come to closure.   

PISCES February 19 – March 20

You have the professional advantage from this week into next as developments, particularly financial ones, give you an edge towards career advancement. You are in the midst of an important agreement with a group or collaborators. Conversations have serious overtones, but this is appropriate since agreements made now will be long lasting and shape the future in big ways. You can weigh your options for now, but by the first week of February, something is written in stone.

2019 OVERVIEW:

There are several differences between 2018 and 2019, most notably last year was about modification and closure as demonstrated by the processes expressed by Venus and Mars retrograde. New beginnings are featured more prominently this year, as circumstances that were merely tentative in 2018 are now beginning to take root. Uranus tested out Taurus, but went back to Aries, needing one more jolt of energy in preparation to carry out the mission that lie ahead. Uranus will find the tasks of Taurus slow going, which is not really it’s style, but is willing to take on if these are predicated on a personal initiative. From March 6th, the deal is sealed with Uranus remaining in Taurus through April 2026. Chiron tried out Aries on the other hand, but probably found the ambience a bit to scalding, and not yet ready to embrace it’s healing propensity in such an intensified and dynamic environment, retreated to the cooling waters of Pisces. Chiron will take up residence in Aries from February 18th through 2027.

All retrogrades represent unfinished business in the areas in which they occur, especially when they straddle two separate signs. The lesson of the previous sign hasn’t fully been integrated yet and through this lens Venus had more to learn about equanimity before it could embrace the passion and depth of Scorpio, while Mars required a better strategy before it could innovate an agenda and move it forward, and went back to the drawing board in Capricorn in order to come up with one. This year, having assimilated the lessons of the past, progress is made and gaining traction comes far more easily. 

Another set of influences will be of extreme significance this year: the aspects of Jupiter square Neptune and of Saturn sextile Neptune. It’s an interesting change of guard, as last year saw the trine of Jupiter to Neptune and two years ago prior (2016) the square between Saturn to Neptune. Now there is a convergence, with slow moving, inspirational Neptune continuing to be the pivot upon which the current storylines intersect. Jupiter square Neptune has a way of potentially bringing out the worst characteristics of both planets, with Jupiter exacerbating Neptune’s fantasy (or delusion) to ever greater proportion, while Neptune convinces Jupiter it’s way out of reach ideas are actually tenable. Put that way, maybe it’s not the worst thing ever? Nonetheless, there is the potential to utterly over estimate a situation, project, individual or group and meet with utter disappointment when inflated expectations fall flat. 

Saturn meanwhile is combining productively with Neptune, and enables the possibility of bringing a visionary matter into reality. This can’t undo the above testimony completely, but does amplify the probability of something very special coming into being this year, as these three collaborate. It’s also notable that all three planets are in the signs of their natural rulership, and thus most effective in their expression. In order to make this work, Saturn will shrewdly cut off some of the excesses Jupiter will likely throw into the mix. 

What is most fascinating about the process at work now is the timing, as these aspects occur simultaneously. The first set occurs in January when Jupiter squares Neptune during the second week of the month. Over the last 10 days of January, Saturn makes the first sextile to Neptune, likely to organize and consolidate whatever was initiated a few weeks earlier. The second set occurs in tandem precisely from June 15th, though the duration is slightly different, the Jupiter transit is shorter, with Neptune going retrograde on June 22nd. 

This kind of synchronicity is rarely seen, and points to something really astonishing taking place in 2019. During the June transit, Jupiter and Saturn are retrograde, and a result has been achieved, but reassessing the situation is crucial at this point. Maybe something didn’t completely work out the first time but it’s worth another go or a change of plan? The final word comes down in the Fall, with Jupiter square Neptune in late September and Saturn putting in the final girders in the second week of November. It’s a process that lasts all year, but yields an extraordinary outcome. Food for thought, anyway….

MERCURY RETROGRADE CYCLES

The Mercury retrograde cycles in 2019 impact the Water signs, so expect your Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces friends (or if you are one of these signs) to be a bit more squirrly this year. If not a water sign yourself, look at the Water trinity in your chart and be aware that these areas (which tend to feed into one another) could be the cause for delays and vexations. Also keep in mind that these are your learning houses for the year. You simply have some lessons and tools to hone associated with the themes of the trine where it lands in your chart. If houses 1 – 5 – 9 are involved, you will be more personally impacted. Self expression will undergo substantial experimentation and reorganization. Houses 2 – 6 – 10 impact money, work and profession. Your career and status undergoes change but attention paid to these lessons will yield success in the end. Houses 3 – 7 – 11 affect community life and you will likely lose and gain new social contacts. People from the past reappear this year. With houses 4 – 8 – 12 hosting the retrograde, psychological and personal issues are center stage. Expect to be withdrawn for periods over the year while you attend to private matters. 

Mercury retrograde dates occur in March (Pisces), July – August (Cancer), and November (Scorpio).

OTHER NOTABLES:

MARS CONJUNCT URANUS February 13th

Mars meets up with Uranus just one more time before Uranus bids adieu, the last of such conjunctions that occur from Aries for 80 years. You get one more shot at something you have tried to begin, innovate or liberate yourself from since April 2011 (the first Mars – Uranus conjunction in Aries), or even May 2010 (the initial ingress of Uranus into Aries), so take your chance, roll your dice and make the thing happen. Look to to position of 29’ Aries in your chart – this is where you are positioned to see an explosive or unexpected development. 

VENUS CONJUNCT MARS August 25th

As this cycle renews, love contracts can either be established, or a fresh period for those seeking contact opens the door to the possibility for a new connection. Having shed the detritus of the previous cycle (which began October 5th, 2017) the learnings, particularly those during the prior retrograde cycles of both planets in 2018, are revealed opening the heart to thrilling new experiences. The house placement reveals where you will most likely find someone who can bring such a relationship into your life, or if coupled, the tone and themes of the partnership for the next two years. 4’ Virgo is featured and is the area of your chart effected. 

JUPITER TRINE URANUS December 13 (3’ Cap/Taurus)

On the surface, this would be an explosive and expansive aspect, but formed between Earth signs has a far more muted quality. The material world and financial markets are influenced in particular, with several people making positive strides in their earnings and savings over this period. This aspect only occurs once, so make the most of it. Innovative methods of generating revenue are featured and technological advances are the most likely route by which this will occur. 

ECLIPSE CYCLE – THE NODAL AXIS

The Nodal Axis rests on Cancer (North Node) and Capricorn (South Node). The evolutionary directive to be developed between now and July 2020 involves nurturing creativity, attending to the more personal aspects of life, usually represented by the home and development of ones’ soul. South Node in Capricorn indicates debilitation to attempting to over-structure one’s existence. Cancer is free flowing, and lives in the moment, whereas Capricorn seeks to strategize and build something up slowly and deliberately. 

Currently, success will more likely be found through acting through intuition and emotion rather than trying to plan everything out and stick to a rigid agenda. Major transits in Capricorn include Pluto to South Node in the first week of April, Saturn to South Node over the first two weeks of July, and Jupiter to South Node in the early part of January 2020. As the South Node works on these planets, it strips them of elements of their nature that are no longer effective or relevant, not the most comfortable process, but essential to growth.     

The Eclipses act as the trigger for these developments, and pushes towards rapid, if unexpected, evolutionary advancement. During eclipse periods life changes swiftly, sometimes as thought thee carpet is being pulled out from under you, leaving you adrift momentarily while the course is adjusted to the appropriate direction you are meant to be traveling. These can represent periods of crisis, but in hindsight were necessary, as you find yourself in the right place at the right time a ways down the road. 

Four eclipses punctuate 2019, the first falling on January 6th, a Solar Eclipse (New Moon) in Capricorn. This particular eclipse features conjunctions to Saturn and Pluto, making it quite stark – a moment of reckoning and catharsis. Neptune is in favorable alinement, hopefully softening the ambience through compassionate awareness. The second is a Total Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon) in Leo on January 22nd. This closes the book on the prominent themes that have been in development since May 2017. A culmination occurs within the major undertakings that have been worked towards since that time.

The second set of eclipses occurs 6 months later – a Total Solar Eclipse occurs in Cancer on July 2nd, which has no major aspects. On July 16th, a Partial Lunar Eclipse occurs in Capricorn in very tight conjunction to Pluto, stimulating another powerhouse moment for transformation. A final Solar Eclipse in Capricorn on December 26th conjuncts Jupiter, generating a highly beneficial ambience within matters that have otherwise been concerning. There is likely some kind of good fortune that emerges for hard work undertaken over the prior two years.

During these rather dynamic periods, there can be a tendency to over respond, or try to take control of a situation and put things back in order. Really these are “Let go and let God” moments, and you are best advised to absolve yourself from feelings of responsibility you may experience to guide the outcome of the events that are occurring around you. 

In moments of stress or disorientation, go into yourself and find your center, releasing any sense of urgency you might be feeling. The only thing you ultimately have control over is yourself. Let it go.  

2019

2019 HOROSCOPE BY SIGN:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

You begin the year in a powerhouse fashion – Mars in your sign arouses your pioneer spirit and you feel prepared to take on the world again. Strong alinements in January to Jupiter from Venus and Mars in your sign set you up for success over the coming year. There are potent career developments in 2019, but success will only come if you can relinquish outmoded ideas about your profession. A meaningful reconsideration transpires between May and September. One path comes to an end, but a new one will open up soon enough. Events in late December reveal a brilliant new opportunity for you. Late April into May is another significant time for Aries when your creativity guides an exciting outcome. 

Uranus departs your sign in March, taking the edge off. You feel more focused. June provides challenges as your domestic circumstances undergo drastic reorganization. Enjoy creativity, a love affair or a leisurely trip in late July as Mars and Jupiter combine effortlessly to create pure pleasure. Partnership is highlighted in the second half of September, though there will be some obstacles present if you seek to make a long term commitment. Mercury retrogrades impact your personal life. You will find a periodic need to withdraw in order to deal with family or private matters. This is a positive year in which to seek therapy if you have considered it in the past. Meditation will also provide a productive outlet for your imagination and help you define things too esoteric to put into words.   

Make the most of this year and opportunities it brings your way. There are a few skirmishes, but in the end you will prevail. Next year features a 6 month transit of Mars through your sign (due to the next retrograde phase approaching in September 2020,) as well as the highly beneficial transit of Jupiter in your 10th house of career and profession. Use 2019 to sort out your domestic situation so you can operate from a place of comfort and stability. Disorder in this area will reduce your effectiveness, and you stand to make extraordinary gains in the near future.  

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

With Uranus in your sign from March, you feel more willing to experiment though this will not likely feel pleasurable initially. By the end of the year you are more likely to have settled into the new order, between now and then the learning curve is a bit steep. Eclipses emphasize the axis of here versus there, and currently the best things are found close to home, the people in your neighborhood and the conversations you have in passing as you go through your day to day routines. Mars in your sign from mid February gets your motor going on a personal project, a trend that lasts through the end of March. 

Investments and shared resources, particularly agreements you enter into with friends need to be regarded with the utmost scrutiny. If someone shows up with some pie in the sky scheme, walk away. These are highly unlikely to deliver as presented and the prospect of failure highly outweighs that of potential success. Venus in your sign from mid May highlights pleasure, and you’ll be quite content in your own skin or sharing your time with a lover. Late July into August features a charged home environment, a lot is going on in your residence, perhaps you are renovating or redecorating. September is highly satisfying, a creative project or love relationship is thoroughly enjoyable. From mid month a work assignment commands your attention, but features an artistic dimension that appeals to you.   

Autumn months bring your key committed relationships into focus, though a Mercury retrograde phase in November could find you reconsidering these, or connecting with people from the past in order to tie up loose ends. The second half and into December the atmosphere is both contentious and passionate between you and your better half, or if seeking a partnership, you likely become quite adamant. December 4th holds an enticing development, and travel with your spouse or lover will provide you with memories to cherish. 

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

There are strong financial influences this year, and while you are guided to do your best to earn your own keep it looks as though you also benefit from or are relying upon the resources of someone else. You will find the support of another, particularly an intimate partner, goes far in enabling you to reach your professional objectives. Generous Jupiter resides in your house of partnership, and if you have not yet connected with your heart mate, you will likely discover someone who will open your life to compelling new experiences and expand your horizons, while those attached can expect the same within their current relationship. 

Things get off to a great start in January, when enticing angles from Venus and Mars in Aries connect with Jupiter, indicating a you share your dreams and hopes with this person, or finding someone with partnership potential through a group of friends, perhaps at a social event or even online. Mars in your sign through April into May invigorates you to pursue personal goals while also adding some spicy passion to the mix. Someone is highly attracted to your wit and intellect, and this person fits like a glove. You seek to share affection with someone who reflects your ideals. 

The issue here is one of perception, as the Jupiter – Neptune squares can equally indicate you are being swept off your feet by an idealized vision of someone rather than the reality of a situation. Any relationship you have now likely requires there be a fantasy element to it, just be certain this is a fantasy you are sharing with your partner and not to yourself. If you can manage this, a love relationship can really take off from mid September through October, when Venus and Mars activate your sector of True Romance. November 23rd is perfect for a wedding or commitment ceremony. 

CANCER June 21 – July 22

You are in one the most dynamic phases you are likely to experience in nearly a 20 year period right now, with the North Node activating incredible growth for you – even if it’s not incredibly comfortable in the present moment, you will likely look back on yourself in a year or two and barely recognize the person you currently are today. The eclipse cycles that occur in January and July will be the most potent for transformation, offering developments, particularly in your closest relationships, that change the trajectory of your life completely.

Pluto is deeply entwined in the narrative of the eclipses associated with your partner (Capricorn) on January 6th and July 16th. (The energy of the eclipses resonates far beyond those dates.) This indicates that big changes are taking place in your relationships, that there could be a power struggle, or you could be getting much, much closer, practically merging souls. (Pluto rules the area of pleasure and romance in your chart, so it’s likely the intensity you are experiencing is actually quite appealing.) Another way through is the Saturn – Neptune sextile, which harmonizes you and your spouse through travel, a shared academic or broadcasting endeavor. Something you have dreamed of and yearned for can be actualized through a formal commitment, though it might not even be a romantic relationship, but someone who you simply partner with to achieve something of significance. 

You are at your most powerful over the Summer, when dual transits of Venus and Mars affect your sign. Mars in Cancer May 16 – July 1 will not be the most comfortable period for you, but will give you the courage and conviction to pursue your aims with determination and passion. The Mercury retrograde period during July occurs in your sign. You may have to stand down momentarily and reconsider your approach. A fortuitously timed transit of Venus, also in Cancer, could just see you relaxing after a hard working period, taking a Summer siesta. Decembers’ Solar Eclipse in Capricorn (partnership house) conjuncts Jupiter, ushering in a wonderful period of growth and expansion for both of you.       

LEO July 23 – August 22

You likely feel the edge has come off since the end of last year and feel more in charge of your destiny with the Nodes out of your sign. It’s great timing with Jupiter from Sagittarius inspiring incredible growth for you this year, perhaps through creative activities, sports and recreation or even a new child. The year begins on a high note with the exciting passage of Mars through Aries, which could see you on the road having a grand adventure. Exciting aspects made mid January indicate that love lies on a distant horizon and it’s likely you are traveling with your spouse or lover or have an enticing experience while abroad. 

From mid February, professional matters are emphasized while Mars transits the area of your chart connected to reputation and your public persona. This is further highlighted long term when Uranus moves into this part of your chart in early March. Over the coming years, you will seek a more independent or innovate approach in your profession, perhaps going into business for yourself. Events in December will likely enable this to happen, between now and then you will be experimenting and exploring your options. 

The transit of Mars through your sign from July into August will give you the passion and conviction to pursue your goals. Your powers of persuasion are enhanced when Venus joins in through August. Use caution July 11th, when you could come into conflict with an authority figure, even the law. July 25th, on the other hand, spells out a great opportunity. November 23rd also desires a big fat star, when Venus combines with Jupiter in your love and pleasure sector, a once in 12 years event. Events in December – Jupiter trine Uranus and the Capricorn Eclipse on the 26th – can grant you the autonomy you seek in your career. The choices and work you take on from March onwards will grant you incredible success at this time.  

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

Fresh winds are blowing Virgo, although it could take you a moment to adjust to them, and a great deal of excitement, as well as a very significant love relationship, are in store for you during 2019. Saturn and Neptune collaborate between your areas of romance and serious relationships throughout the year, enabling you to make a commitment now that taps into the romantic vision you have held for years regarding true love. The harsh disappointments you have likely experienced, and particularly the events that occurred in 2016, are long behind you. It’s time to move forward, and the eclipses on January 6th, July 16th and December 26th could all produce fated occurrences. 

Someone you rely upon for money could be giving you trouble at the onset of the year, but this is a feature that by March will no longer present an issue. Uranus in Taurus will give you an upbeat vibration and make you less rigid in the way in which you deal with the world. Early Virgo experiences this first, but by 2026 all of you will be *tapped* by this electrifying and liberating force. You likely feel like trying things differently, and express yourself new ways. From late August all the way through September you are extraordinarily powerful, and can go after your goals with extraordinary conviction. The dates of September 9th and 11th are especially potent for reaching out to your dreams and making them come true. 

As a Virgo you are particularly susceptible to the retrograde phases of Mercury and in 2019 these strongly affect your social life and connections. The retrograde period in March will have a specific affect on your close relationship and could bring someone from the past back into your orbit. March 17th and 20th in particular may find you reconsidering a prior choice. Stationing on Neptune, Mercury is conjunct this delicate point for close to two weeks. Let intuition guide you. A dream or de ja vous experience may inspire you to seek out a lost love to see if you can rekindle the spark. The eclipse on December 26th seals the deal on love. With Jupiter now in your house of pleasure, love can really take off now! 

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

The first few months of the year bring heat and intensity to a new or existing relationship. Particularly around February 13th, an unanticipated and electrifying connection could be made that completely astonishes you. To the extent you have been seeking freedom over the past several years, you may unexpectedly break off a commitment in order to pursue your objectives independently. From March, this up/down and back and fourth climate dissipates and you experience a more settled quality in your love life. Late April into May is the best period in which to establish a love relationship, with special punctuation marks occurring on the 5th of April and October 15th. Mid September through early October is also very favorable. 

Professional matters are likely to consume the majority of your time and attention in 2019. If over the past few years you have felt you sacrificed yourself in order to maintain domestic peace and personal relationships, you’ll likely decide this is the year you want to dedicate yourself to getting ahead in some way, either reaching towards a career milestone or a personal goal. The eclipses on January 22nd and July 2nd hold the potential to flip the script for you, a huge development could send you on a whole new trajectory in a flash. Your family or those closest to you may not be thrilled about these developments and attempt to block you, but you have to make up your mind for yourself here and chose to take the opportunities extended while they are there, and swiftly.  

Your profile is rising from mid May through July, though there is a competitive atmosphere in your profession, you rise to the occasion by remaining upbeat and maintaining a sense of humor. Mercury retrograde between July 20 – August 1 could feature a detour. In August you celebrate a victory with friends. The Autumn belongs to you anyway, but this year especially with Mars transiting your sign from October 4 – November 19th. Be wary of vanity, regardless how successful you have been this year, as it won’t come off favorably. Media in particular can be a really positive and profitable enterprise for you. Your ideas are met with favor with January and July being stand out months for incredible growth. Working with others offers the most beneficial outcome.  

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

It’s not the most harmonious year overall, as a very rambunctious and fiery atmosphere will test you, though you will find these challenges can be overcome and will help you to develop into a more well rounded person. What this leads you to are very positive financial and professional indications, and success is assured if you stay the course. Personal relationships are enhanced meanwhile, and a love relationship that has been elusive (perhaps for several years,) may finally stabilize. You’ll have to navigate a circuitous path, but will eventually reach an important milestone in your love life. Pay close attention to dreams in late March and early April as they will reveal your hearts’ true desire. 

Uranus in Taurus will have it’s own say in this, and someone you meet, (or perhaps already know,)  sends electrifying currents through you that keep you up all night, intoxicated with excitement. This can also have a highly destabilizing quality and relationships can spark up and smoke out quickly. You got a taste of this last year, but from March, this will be an ongoing feature of your chart for many years. For a relationship to last, it needs to remain vital and offer a degree of freedom. This will come down to trust, and for Scorpio, this kind of loose connection could make it difficult to muster. Neptune also plays a role, as the romantic vision you have sought after gets anchored by Saturn. It’s possible by the end of the year to have something very special, though unusual, (by normal standards,) occur in your love life.

The year begins in a hard working phase. You are likely compensated for your efforts, which sweetens the deal, but don’t lose sight of the bigger picture and get seduced by dollars and cents. Choose assignments that will elevate your status and bring you closer to your true aspirations. It pays off later. If you manage, July and August see you in high demand as your profile rises. You have to guard your reputation well over the first couple weeks of July as Mercury retrogrades. There could be a detour or bad press, so keep your ambitious activities under wraps for the time being. August returns you to favor and by November 23rd, you’ll see your ships come in. 

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22 – Dec 21

This could easily go down as one of your best years on record, or at least in a long while, with not only Jupiter in your sign, but several positive Mars fire sign transits amplifying your potential for growth and success. One caveat, however, (of course) with Jupiter square Neptune there is the potential to undo what could be a lot of good for you. This would come in the shape of allowing your life to devolve into one of the 1960’s drug party scenes from Absolutely Fabulous, if you get the picture. Funny to watch, not so much the reality of out-patient treatment. Don’t get blindsided by temptations. You got this Sag, I believe in you! 

The year gets off to a great start, as a tense and introspective period quickly gives way to a bold and rambunctious transit of Mars in Aries. Venus arrives in your sign on the 7th, making January a highly satisfying and pleasurable period for you. Perhaps someone special has caught your eye and you are in the midst of a highly enticing love affair. Creativity is also stimulated and mid month features a chain of aspects between Venus – Mars – Jupiter that can only be described as SPECTACULAR!!! If you are still looking to come out of your shell and find someone to play with, Mars and Uranus have a really special surprise for you on February 13th.  

July and August are also incredible, though Jupiter will be retrograde through August 11th, from there it’s smooth sailing, especially if you are traveling or involved in academia or publishing. July 25th is stunning, as is August 9th. You can make a great impression on people at a distance. November 23rd is one of the best days of the whole year, as Venus and Jupiter link up in your sign, make a wish, because it will come true. You deserve it! 2020 features a significant financial influence, so use this one to enjoy yourself as much as possible and live your hearts desire. Your personal life also will require some attention this year during the Mercury retrograde phases.  

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19 

The way you think and the words you use are highlighted this year, as will be your spouse or a committed relationship. The hands of destiny are guiding you, and what might seem at times as raw bad luck is truly meant to bring you to your higher purpose and quite possibly the love of your life. Saturn as your ruler is making a significant aspect to Neptune throughout the year, and a book, podcast, music or video project you’ve been angling to get off the ground can finally see the light of day. Forget the past and what may have felt like failure. Everything you know now is a result of that process. It’s time to get inspired again and move forward.

Saturn is also chasing Pluto in your sign, but will retrograde on April 30th, just 3 degrees shy of reaching the conjunction, which will have to wait until January 5th, 2020. When these two obstinate forces meet, there will be a palpable shift in global consciousness which you have the unique potential to have a very personal effect upon. This depends on you, your involvement in your community (or ability to reach a broad audience) where you see the future of humanity headed, and only of course if you choose to. Capricorn holds a lot of power now, the power to steer the ship, and that is a lot of responsibility to bear. Guess what though? You are the only one capable of doing so, and the world needs you right now. South Node will force you to shed some baggage, and eliminate what is unessential (assuming Pluto left anything,) but for this too, you have plenty of strength to handle.

This doesn’t mean you don’t get to have a personal life, and you’ll find your relationship, or interest in relationships, is growing. Fate is playing a role in the matter and particularly in January and July (though it can happen anytime) a connection that radiates with an aura of destiny could emerge and shake up your life completely. Coupled with the electrifying transit of Uranus in the area of True Romance starting in March, your romantic life is full of exciting surprises. Finally, if you have been seeking to move or change a residential situation in order to have more independence, an incredible development on February 13th could be your ticket out of Dodge. 

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

Following the quagmire you lived through in 2018, this one is easy breezy, featuring some really great moments with friends and in relationships, your social life is buzzy and exciting. You’ll notice a palpable difference from day one, as the pace of day to day life becomes more brisk. If you have been more withdrawn over the prior weeks, you will get a huge boost of energy to get out there again, perhaps take a course or start a writing project. Curiosity will be aroused. A string of aspects mid month is very stimulating. Take invitations and attend events. You’ll meet some interesting people and maybe even spark a fun flirtation. A chance meeting around February 13th could provide you with a short lived but highly provocative experience. 

From March your ruling planet will enter Taurus, which is a slow going sign and not really a comfortable placement for you. It’s likely you’ll seek to transform your living situation in some way and to eradicate yourself from a circumstance that has become stagnant, possibly leaving your home, city or even country. Towards the end of the year you will get a strong intuition about this and will likely be ready to make a big move. April into May is your creative peak, and the spoken or written word holds particular appeal. A theater presentation (even if you are only attending) can be very pleasurable and open you up to new perspectives you may have not considered. Think twice about romantic relationships you might enter into during the last week of April. All that glitters…

A strong relationship emphasis comes in during July and August, with really sparkling moments between you and a potential or existing partner on July 25th and August 9th. This person shares your ideals and this connection will be a signifiant feature of the attraction. The July 31st New Moon is a major punctuation mark. Professionally things take off in October, though a Mercury retrograde period one the first 3 weeks of November could curtail your agenda temporarily. Mars gives you the passion and confidence to pursue your goals wholeheartedly through New Years. 

PISCES February 19 – March 20

The eclipses influence your social life, though you are just as likely to see certain relationships you have outgrown come to an end at this time. It’s more likely a new love relationship develops, perhaps quite suddenly and unexpectedly, with fated connotations that stimulate a sense of destiny. Other Pisces will become pregnant and others will “birth” incredible creative projects this year. From mid May through the end of July, you reach your highest potential for such endeavors, with the July 2nd eclipse providing a major punctuation mark. June 13th and July 18th are also exceptional for art, romance and pleasure.

Jupiter is amplifying your desire to succeed, at least on your own terms, and it’s also possible to turn a few dreams into reality in 2019. The outcome of this will come down to remaining realistic about your own abilities and to avoid at all cost getting conned out of money to pay advisors, coaches and other “gurus” who promise the world by inflating your expectations, but ultimately can’t make you feel confident if you can’t find confidence within yourself. You don’t need to spend thousands to go on a spiritual retreat to be spiritual, either. Simply find a quiet place and pray or meditate. Saturn is highly instrumental here, as you’ll be feeling more down to earth (if not a little pinned down) and taking things methodically, one step at a time. 

From May an intriguing transit begins, one that will stimulate you to seek freedom, on your own terms, while also arousing an unbridled desire for sexual liberation. This endures beyond the end of the year into early next Spring, but peaks in the second half of June. Daily life is also set to become more interesting, and curiosity will have you asking questions and perhaps taking a course or starting a new project. A comic book, podcast, video project or writing could be satisfying and reveal dimensions of your creativity you did not expect. 

 

     

Weekly Forecast 11/11 – 17

RELEASING CONSTRAITS

WEEKLY FORECAST:
Despite the next Mercury retrograde cycle looming largely in the forecast this week, there are some positive indications in the mix with progress on some fronts due. By then end of the week, Mars moves into Pisces, after a prolonged period spent in Aquarius due to the recent retrograde. The following day, Venus will go direct from 25’ Libra, with both events stimulating positive changes for the protagonists of a love story that has very much been a work in progress since October of last year. More harmonious conditions prevail under these auspices, and where the heart has been uncertain, between now and January, accord can be reached in key commitments, particularly from mid December, when a string of helpful aspects between Venus – Scorpio and Mars – Pisces strengthens the emotional bond between partners immeasurably.

Mars from Pisces is not it’s strongest placement, as the forceful nature of Mars is muted and rather difficult to express. This makes the rest of the year more ideal for reflection and release, and meditation and other practices that enhance a connection to the metaphysical world will enhance the spiritual realm and enable emotions to flourish. From New Year it’s all systems forward, with a huge thrust of energy when Mars moves into Aries, connecting with Jupiter in Sagittarius and Uranus (back in Aries) in January – February 2019. For the time being, space clearing is essential to preparing for what awaits next year. This is a season of resolution, precipitating a season of revolution.

Sun sextile Pluto (Sunday) and Mars sextile Uranus (Thursday) both hold the potential for progress. These aspects denote the final phases of storylines (to continue on that theme of closure,) to prepare for the new cycles – Sun/Pluto renews on January 10th (20’ Capricorn), Mars/Uranus on February 12th (29’ Aries) of next year. These are game changing aspects, although the effects can be somewhat subtle. Sun and Pluto invigorate a desire to transform ones self, in order to influence circumstances or a particular outcome. This ties back to something initiated in early in January, when the current cycle began. There is passion and conviction at your disposal to release yourself from a troubling issue, and something you have dedicated to yourself this year finally reveals it’s promise. A person or habit that has held you back in some way can be relinquished easily at this time.

Mars and Uranus collaborating points to an innovative breakthrough, or finding a new way to do something that offers a solution to a problem that has been persistent since mid May. Where you have sought independence (Uranus in Aries,) you may discover the escape hatch. People are more willing to comply (or even assist) with your efforts this week. This aspect occurs about 12 hours before Mars leaves Aquarius on Thursday, a sort of a last hurrah after a long period of tinkering behind the scenes on a project or within an association meant to offer you greater independence to do things the way you choose to. This could accelerate suddenly and unexpectedly after months of vexing uncertainty. The current Mars/Uranus cycle began in March of 2017, so anticipate the resolution of what emerged in that period and prepare for the exciting new cycle that begins in February.

The troubling bit over the next few weeks is of course the Mercury retrograde cycle, which commences on Friday. This is exacerbated by a long square aspect made to Neptune between the 14th and 20th of this month. It’s a very tricky few days during which the boundaries of fact and fiction are blurred. On one hand, there is creative potential here, as perception is skewed just enough to see things in a way that transcends reality, the imaginative realm is highly stimulated and great art can come out of this. Not so much for communication, relationships and most certainly business matters, however, as the thought process is muddled and confusion reigns supreme. What emerges during this transit has the potential to reveal where a delusion has occurred, and this can point to a disappointment, though the positive response would be recognition where work has to take place to bring a dream or vision into reality. Over the next 3 weeks this will be attended to, with a final culminating event occurring on December 24th that sets a matter to rest.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

You gain traction professionally in the early part of the week, stay focused on the prize and be willing to make changes as necessary. Relational matters begin to be settled from the end of the week, and a reconciliation is possible where reversals may have occurred over the last few months. Meanwhile, you turn inward and take a more reflective stance through the end of the year as attention turns away from social dynamics that have predominated for most of the year and you start to consider where you really want to go next. From December onward you will have much more clarity about this, for the time being examining all your options is advised.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Your ruling planet begins to return to form, signaling a period that may have been debilitating for your self image or esteem is on the road to reconciliation. Much of this comes from the inner reflection that has occurred over the last several weeks, and returning to your values where they may have been abandoned in the interest of keeping the peace. The timing is good, as you enter a more socially motivated phase and can join forces with like minded people to achieve your aspirations. Knowing what you can offer or bring to the equation enhances your prospects to connect with individuals or an organization that benefits you.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

There is the potential to reconcile a romantic relationship that had derailed or sidetracked recently, though it’s likely you will still second guess yourself (or perhaps the other person is still questioning,) curtailing a commitment to be made for a few more weeks. For the time being, you may find it more appealing to seek pleasure within, and pursue personal hobbies or creative activities that provide an outlet for self expression. Your life direction may also be in question, and it could be that your inability to chart a certain course is hindering an association to take root. From December this becomes more clear, and you start to get indications beginning towards the end of the week of the shape your future is taking, likely taking on some more responsibilities to arrive there.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

There could be a significant development in a personal relationship early in the week. You arrive at a decision to make a substantive change within your commitments and see immediate transformation. Mars from Pisces encourages you to embrace the future, charging your sense of excitement to broaden your scope of activities and reach out further that you have previously gone. Work commitments or health issues could hinder the progress you seek at the same time, and something requires drastic reorganization between now and the first week of December. Renew your perspective on how you handle your daily affairs and from there, you can take flight.

LEO July 23 – August 22

The Sun continues to activate your root base with developments early in the week set to transform conditions in some way. A personal relationship is also highlighted and there could be unanticipated, but welcome, changes to your status on Thursday. Mixed signals arrive from Friday, and a situation with someone you care about mutates in strange ways over the coming weeks. You may even resurrect a prior love connection to see if there is still any juicy romantic sparks left in there. Maybe, maybe not, and it’s likely the jury is out on this one until at least mid December, so take it slow! Mars moves into the area of your chart that influences intimacy and deep, soul contract relationships. A period of inner transformation lasts through New Year.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

Things are about to get intense in your closest alliances for better or worse from the end of the week. Mars has the capability to bring incredible passion to your alliance, but equally conflict if you or the person sitting on the other side of the scales does not feel they are getting their fair due in a one on one relationship. If single, this period could bring urgency to finding a mate. Domestic matters will preoccupy you over the coming weeks, and likely some degree of upheaval is due on the home front while circumstances go through reconsideration and metamorphosis. You seem to have to resolve an outstanding issue to open the door to the commitment you desire. A sense of frustration at the end of the week regarding this should point you to where a solution is required.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Feelings of uncertainty or insecurity begin to dissipate over the coming weeks, following a period of crucial reappraisal of your identity and life direction. Personal matters, and what is required of you to resolve an endemic issue on the home front becomes crystal clear in the early part of the week. Make a plan to move this forward during the first month of the new year. Your productivity spikes through December, providing you with a fortuitous period in which to pursue professional goals. The hard work you commit to now pays off next Summer in a major promotion. A breakthrough in a relationship or through a new acquaintance can be exciting Thursday.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

You get a second chance to reorganize your financials over the next few weeks, and a big opportunity en route can inspire a major success story if you give it time. Getting this sorted enables you to achieve a long range goal associated with a creative project or to begin a new, or new chapter in a love relationship that has been difficult to get off the ground. Pay attention to feelings or tension around this subject at the end of the week for clues. Where you sense a limitation is exactly where you need to go to find resolution. By December you are golden.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

An elongated transit of Mercury in your sign (through January 5, woah!) makes life brisk and exciting. Many events and meetings with people fill your days through the end of the year. The retrograde period can pull people from your past back into your orbit, and through these contacts you may come to realize personal traits you have outgrown, or otherwise rediscover aspects of yourself you would like to reactivate. Meanwhile, Mars moves into your root base, activating a desire to attend to personal or domestic matters, perhaps as a matter of necessity as this transit can stimulate strife or conflict at your residence. If nothing else, expect a lot of activity to be taking place at home, perhaps hosting guests or renovating your space.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

Sun from Scorpio continues to generate a productive ambience to achieve your aspirations, and especially where you collaborate with others, you are likely to meet with success. Venus direct at the end of the week extends a second chance or new opportunity to enhance your reputation and make positive strides in your professional life. Advancement is likely now, following a period of reappraisal of the where, how, and what of your life direction over the past six weeks. Mercury meanwhile could lead you on a trip down memory road and matters pertaining to the past require resolution over the coming weeks. If people from the past show up now, settle the unfinished business between you once and for all.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

Mars finally leaves your sign towards the final days of the week, taking some of the heat and intensity off you directly and placing more emphasis on the financial aspects that require attention. This could get a little tangled in the later days of the week, where the bubble bursts on a much desired outcome involving your earnings or savings. An oversight or unanticipated expense could prove concerning. Thursday is particularly exciting and a conversation or meeting will be stimulating. You see how far you have come this year and are ready to embark on a new chapter. Reconnecting with people from your past seems to feature meanwhile, and there could be a reunion on the cards for you between now and December.

PISCES February 19 – March 20

After a long year of indescribable complexity if not confusion, Pisces is ready to enter the building. Having shed a lot of skin since May, you feel a sense of rebirth precipitating. From Thursday, when Mars enters your sign, you are emboldened and impassioned to make big moves, and over the next year stand to make incredible strides in your profession. First it seems you need to untangle a matter associated with your self image, and this will be incredibly pointed at the end of the week when Mercury retrogrades against Neptune in your sign. Your potency is hindered by a lack of clarity regarding how you represent yourself and between now and Yule you will be charged to figure this one out to make the most of the positive professional auspices available to you.

Weekly Horoscopes 6/24-30

The key energies that will shape the Summer months click into place this week. Mars retrogrades in Aquarius on Tuesday, a transit that lasts through the end of August, while Mercury enters Leo on Friday for a 10 weeks visit (due to it’s own retrograde period from late July – mid August) suggesting there is a work in progress quality present over the coming months, and with the Fixed Cross activated heavily, issues pertaining to security are going through major transitions. With Mars and Mercury both retrograde for the better part of the next 3 months, and teetering on the Nodal Axis, there is a lot of recalibration required to reach the desired outcomes. Stay as chill with this as possible, as things are not only moving slowly, but changing on a daily basis as new information constantly emerges throughout these sensitive retrograde transits.

It can be easy under these auspices to fall into complacency and try to keep doing things the same way as always, but the message is really to break into new territory and do things in different or even unprecedented way. Retrograde periods also have a way of revealing the flaws in the original design and what isn’t really working out. The extended Mercury – Leo transit is actually helpful in keeping the North Node – Leo dialogue open for so long. Due to it’s upcoming retrograde cycle, it will conjoin the Leo Solar Eclipse in August, enabling very important conversations to occur that will advance matters quite swiftly. (Actual decisions and agreements will likely fall into place closer to the end of August – when Mercury direct reaches this degree again and Mars also returns to forward motion.)

Mercury and Leo are not a great natural fit – Mercury rules the logical attributes of mind, while Leo, like all fire signs, lives through the faculties of sensation and intuition, the gut feeling. Over the next 10 weeks then do not expect much cooperation from the rational or analytical auspices of your intellect, but rather roll with the hunches and the punches and express yourself from your creative-instinctual nature.

Otherwise this week is a sobering period at best as Saturn looms largely in the tapestry of the current aspect patterns and a sense that it’s time to face up to responsibilities is highlighted. The Capricorn Full Moon on Thursday is in exact conjunction with it’s ruling planet – Saturn, while the Sun sits in opposition. The nourishing and nurturing atmosphere Cancer Sun seeks to provide is challenged by harsh realities, producing a somber, or even an emotionally depressive state. There could be feelings of restriction and limitation, though if you have managed to live up to the demands that Saturn requires of you right now (particularly over the last six months) there can be a sense of having accomplished something of importance and enduring results. If this is not the case, the Full Moon will likely reorient you to the task at hand and urge making a bigger effort and to act with greater resilience.

Where Saturn resides, you are polishing your diamond, so to speak. The Saturn process is about taking something crude and refining it, through time and patience, into something stunning and unbreakable. As you choose your activities, and especially those that are patterned and define your daily practices, ask yourself if these are helping you grind on your diamond, or just grinding your gears. Let the response to this help you choose the ones that will add lustre and beauty to the area of your life affected, while you set aside those that do not.

Meanwhile Eclipse season is brewing behind the scenes, with particularly volatile events occurring around the Aquarius Total Lunar Eclipse occurring on July 27th. Early indications arrive next weekend as the transiting Aquarius Moon stimulates several of the aspects that will occur in another 4 weeks. Pay attention to cues and intuition for where this is all heading. Breakdowns that occur around next weekend are crucial for stripping away what is inessential in the next phase, regardless of how it feels in the moment. Many of these narratives were set into motion last August, and where you encountered major turning points in your life trajectory, a new chapter will be written quite soon.

EXTENDED WEEKLY FORECAST WITH DAILY ASPECTARIAN + READINGS AVAILABLE FOR SUBSCRIBERS ON PATREON

STARSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

Old acquaintances reappear on the scene for an encore, while others may disappear from view for a while. You’ve made substantial progress professionally since the beginning of the year, though the Full Moon Thursday also points to how far you still have to go. If you aren’t pleased with the results, dig deep and figure out where you can redouble your efforts to attain the long term outcome you seek. Mercury makes an extended visit to your area of pleasure and self expression, making this a vitalizing period for your personal endeavors. Time to get creative.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Career matters stall and will require some patience to maneuver through the Summer months. Your sense of direction is clarified during the Full Moon on Thursday, though here too, you may be hitting a road block of some description. Things could be touchy with a romantic partner early in the week, making this a testing period if you were thinking of introducing your mate to the family or popping the cohabitation question. With your root base in flux for the foreseeable future you do best to keep things malleable for the time being.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

This will be an amenable period for your social life, and a variety of contacts and connections will keep things lively over the next few months. The people in your neighborhood have a lot to show you, not so much those at a distance. An idea for a project may resurface and keep you busy. Educational goals may detour at this time, take time to reflect on where and how you will get to your destination. A critical financial matter demands clarification over the Full Moon phase. It may be time to address a debt or settlement matter.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

Critical partnership issues that have been stewing since New Years culminate this week and whatever the result (till death do we part or a parting of ways) there is a significant change in the upcoming mix. Financial matters will have their share of ups and downs throughout the Summer as you begin to get indications of towards the end of the week. Establishing your values and a sense of personal worth will lead you to the appropriate outlet for your talents, the next two months are appropriate for exploration and experimentation.

LEO July 23 – August 22

With Mercury making an extended transit of your sign this Summer you are likely to be busy – busy – busy, though a push and pull quality within a relationship can leave you exasperated. It’s equally possible your own projects keep a relationship off limits for the time being or someone just falls off the radar. Sands shift dramatically over the next few months, so even if a situation is untenable in the present tense does not mean it won’t come together for you a little way down the road. As a huge work assignment culminates, you exude authority.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

A relationship gets serious this week, though if on your own, you may just seriously be doubting if you’ll ever have one again. This is a crucial time in which to coming to terms with what you need and expect in this area will bring forth an enduring commitment, if only over time. A lot is going on behind the scenes for you, and it appears there are matters that require closure of the permanent variety before you can really move forward. Detoxification is required now, and finding help on this journey (in the form of some kind of therapy) could provide incredible assistance while you navigate your personal X-Files.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Substantive shifts in your home/profession are possible over the next Lunar Cycle, if not the next 6 months, and you may find a relocation is required to make the most of a career opportunity that is offered in the near future. Getting real with what is and what is not working is critical to making the right choices. Unexpected financial upsets are also possible, so keep your ear to the ground, especially where shared resources are on topic. Relationships can go a bit sideways in this period, and a sense of uncertainty could be pervasive while you figure out your future. An unsettled matter from the past may be preventing a commitment. Solve this.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

Profession is the major topic for your this Summer, as a lengthy transit of Mercury highlights where you are headed. While detours may come off as frustrating while they occur, they will ultimately play a big role in landing you in exactly the right place at exactly the right time. (Circle August 11th for a conspicuous development.) Changes in the domestic arena reflect changes within, and if you seek to clear your head space, first try your living space. A fresh coat of paint or getting rid of old stuff and clutter has a profound psychological effect.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

Recognition of a financial limitation may be experienced quite potently over the Full Moon phase this week. Equally, you may have made substantial progress this year and see the results of your prudence result in an enduring source of income. Those facing more of a balls to bricks reality check here do well to more clearly define objectives and form a strategy to attain them. Long range plans are in flux over the coming months, you may go back and fourth over educational goals as well. A curve ball at work next weekend can provide an upset. Easy does it.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

Trust, intimacy and commitment are the major themes of the upcoming Lunar Cycle, which begins to culminate this week with the Full Moon in your sign. A very intensive cycle began at the beginning of the year for Cap natives, and choices you made in that time period, especially those that fall on the you – me axis, are up for appraisal. An eclipse in opposition to your sign in two more weeks shows the other shoe is soon to drop and between now and January 2019 you are likely to experience quite a shift in marital status. Stay focused and true to your conviction. The Saturn cycle is demanding but offers rewards where you can keep on course.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

Mars retro from your sign will have you second guessing even your best laid plans and intentions. This period is ripe for exploration meanwhile, and likely features a key person who you want to do that exploration with. Mercury from Leo makes an extended transit – there could be some detours along the route, perhaps unfinished business with someone in your past that requires resolution before you can move forward. If you have unaddressed psychological matters to reconcile, these will be quite apparent during the Full Moon period this week. Breaking through your inner blocks and obstacles is possible when you acknowledge them in this phase.

PISCES February 19 – March 20

You are well off the radar of this week’s more heat seeking frequencies, though your friends and coworkers may be going through a lot and lean on you for support. There are some stirrings behind the scenes, meanwhile, and you may intuitively discover a source of income is right at your finger tips. Navigate this one carefully, as detours lie in store, but record ideas and put them into motion this Fall. An uncomfortable moment or mixed signals midweek may require you to clarify your position. If only you knew what it was. One step at a time and you will get there.

Weekly Forecast 6/10-16

This week I would like to dedicate the Stargazer blog to my dad, John Marquis, who would have turned 66 on Friday. We lost him 10 years ago to Cancer. He was a painter and I chose 12 of his works to reflect on each of the 12 signs this week. Growing up in San Francisco, it was my dad who introduced me to astrology. We would sit in his painting studio and he’d be looking at the ephemeris, which was so mysterious and fascinating to me. As a teenager my interest grew, dad made me a card with all the astrology symbols on it for reference, and I started to pick up books by Robert Hand and other astrologers and would walk the city streets with my dad and talk about transits, aspects and other topics. He was really the coolest, RIP, miss you much. If you are interested in the artwork, check out this book my brother and I put together. ❤️

STARSCOPES:

ARIESARIES March 20 – April 19

The New Moon mid week opens the channels of communication for you, though there seem to be more obstinate forces to contend with at work. Financial matters also need a little tweak this week, as you realize your assets are only able to take you so far at this time. Love relationships and creativity are highlighted and you may feel compelled to take things to the next level with someone who has caught your attention.

taurusTAURUS April 20 – May 20

The New Moon Wednesday emphasizes new ways to think about earnings, and you can promote yourself effectively if you are looking for extra assignments or a new position. A pessimistic streak at the end of the week could require appraisal, though this will more likely just be a passing mood. There can be some urgency to tackle a domestic project as well, or you might just suddenly feel you want to make a move. Easy does it.

geminiGEMINI May 21 – June 20

Wednesday sees the only New Moon in your sign for the year, it’s time to shake off any of the doldrums of the past and open up to new ways of life. Financial news, meanwhile, may not be so great, and if there is a setback at the end of the week, use it as an opportunity to get your house in order. A vibrant social season is unfolding and you can make the most of it by taking invitations or even asking out someone who recently caught your eye.

moon copy 2CANCER June 21 – July 22

The New Moon highlights the area of secrets and spirituality. There could be an intense message from the dream realm and it’s intuition will be incredibly strong. Venus leaves your sign this week, motivating some bold financial efforts, though a tricky ambience on Thursday could see an unexpected expense crop up. Relationship dynamics could continue to be dicey as you and someone else sort agreements and determine the future of your association.

LEOLEO July 23 – August 22

Venus from your sign promises some enticing moments ahead. You might come on a bit strong towards the end of the week, though, so watch your actions closely as they will have a bearing on your reputation. Social life is vibrant and exciting in this phase, though you’ll also likely seek some quiet moments behind the scenes for reflection and release. Important developments are brewing at work, a significant conversation occurs Friday that signals these.

VIRGOVIRGO August 23 – September 22

The New Moon on Wednesday falls on your area of life direction and where you are heading. If you have a new direction you would like to take your career this is an ideal time to have the conversations that will get you where you want to go. Relationships can be a little more tricky at this time, especially if you and your significant other can’t quite see eye to eye on something. Commitments are highlighted if you can go the next mile.

LIBRALIBRA September 23 – October 23

Distant horizons beacon with the New Moon illuminating a new direction or destination mid week. A media project could also be commanding attention giving you a professional boost. Domestic matters could require a more delicate touch, meanwhile, as a growing emphasis on career matters could create prickly dynamics on the home front. This is an ideal period for social activities and even a love relationship could be coming into the picture.

scorpioSCORPIO October 24 – November 21

Intimacy and shared resources are the topic of this weeks New Moon, you may be clarifying commitments at this time. While you will seek to settle these matters quickly, there are some strange influences at play as well and you might just not have the whole story. Venus in Leo stimulates fantastic developments on the career front and new assignments or a promotion really speak to what you love to do. Mercury will provide a tricky ambience here through the Summer so expect this story to take a little longer to sort out.

SagSAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

A New Moon opposite you opens doors in relationships or level up a commitment for business or pleasure. Venus from Leo beginning mid week amps up your desirability, making you visible and more likely to form a pleasurable contact with someone on your wavelength. There seems to be some paperwork to attend to likely regarding a contract over shared resources. This could be a concerning matter towards the end of the week, though once you overcome an obstacle, there will be a brighter outcome.

capricornCAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

Communication, and conducting business negotiations especially, are highlighted this week, and by the end of the week you could be making a major commitment or escalating a key partnership. It’s also possible something/someone disappoints, and that there is a conclusion of some description instead. The New Moon is the perfect time to turn a new leaf in wellness or productivity. Rather than focus on what you want to get rid of focus on what you want to bring in. A good habit could easily replace a bad one at this time.

aquariusAQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

The New Moon enhances your desire to live more comfortably in your own skin, and to be more expressive and outgoing. Venus from Leo amplifies your love connections, making the next month ideal for connecting with your spouse or finding a new relationship that fits the bill. This all makes for a very enticing week! Try not to get too trigger happy on Thursday, as there are surprises in store that can work out surprisingly well or prove disappointing.

piscesPISCES February 19 – March 20

Your roots and personal life are highlighted by the New Moon on Wednesday, though you are more interested in where you are headed than where you came from. This is a useful period to refresh your living space, get rid of junk, or get that new coat of paint on the wall. Upgrades you make in your home bleeds into your psyche and has significant metaphorical implications. You might even get motivated to start a new exercise routine or new diet and all this, too, help you to feel good from the inside out.

Weekly Forecast 5/27-6/2

A great deal precipitates this week, as several lush punctuation marks shape the days ahead. The Sagittarius Full Moon beams down on Tuesday, stimulating adventurous and inquisitive energies. Saturn provides a difficult obstacle within this alignment and can be a bit of a spoiler where the attainment of freedom is sought. Mars also plays a strong role during the Full Moon phase -connecting harmoniously – so there is an energizing boost that helps to bring something into form. In many ways the Full Moon speaks to what was and what will be. More recently, Saturn transited this region of the zodiac, inspiring constriction of efforts and clearing out the superfluous. Jupiter will move into this area upcoming, stimulating growth and prosperity in regard to issues that may have taken a bit of a hit during the Saturn transit, so it’s likely the Full Moon reveals clues as to the changes due.

Conjunct Antares, the Full Moon has the potential to trigger obsessive or obstinate behavior. The star that sits in the Heart of Scorpio is a rather intense and powerful point! Look to events around 2 years ago, as these still seem to require resolution. (Both Saturn and Mars made long transits this degree – 8′ Sagittarius – during that period.)

Mars at this point is conjunct the degree of the Lunar eclipse that occurs at the end of July, spending most of the week hovering over 4’ Aquarius. Something set into motion this week (and particularly around the time of the Full Moon) is likely to play into the stunning developments that occur over the Eclipse Season, so be on the lookout for clues and intuition into what is going to come up down the road. A choice made now could have a direct bearing on how successful you will be in about 2 months time and what kind of opportunities will emerge. Incidentally, Mars will have returned to this degree precisely and conjunct the Lunar Eclipse in July, so events are quite forth telling.

Mercury enters Gemini on Tuesday PM, a brisk transit that lasts for a mere 2 weeks since Mercury is traveling at it’s fastest speed through June. Curiosity is stimulated, and there can be a lot of diversions and interesting people to meet and speak to. There is a busyness indicated, and many matters that require attention. This is a wonderful time for tying up loose ends, especially where a paper trail is involved or contracts need to be signed.

Venus from Cancer at the end of the week taps Jupiter and Neptune in a Grand Water Trine. This is a marvelous ambience for expressing love and affection, enhancing the emotional ties that flow between people. While not an overtly romantic influence, (from water signs this energy takes place below the surface, within a highly subjective realm) these aspects provide a great back drop for understanding the deeper feelings aroused through personal connections. Imagination is also invigorated, making the end of the week ideal for creating art projects or attending an art or musical reception. If there has been uncertainty where sentiments or the future of a relationship lies, these aspects promote intimacy and coming to terms with the hearts desires.

Friday will also see Mercury and Mars in trine, an excellent time for making a presentation or proposal. Get something moving, guided by the awareness all the pieces might not fall into place until late September. The destination will be reached, although not necessarily in the way it’s expected to.

STARSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

Your emotional realm is stimulated this week, and deep understanding of your inner drives and motivations could reveal themselves. Coming to terms with what you really want is the fastest route to getting there and there are likely to be a few moments over the coming days that tune you into those goals. Balancing your personal aspirations with those of your friends or colleagues is required of you, though you are likely better off putting yourself first and foremost as you design an agenda for the coming months ahead. It’s possible certain connections are falling by the wayside. You may get clues this week of who or what has been outgrown.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Socially there is a generous and supportive atmosphere for you and a key partnership continues to turn up unexpected treats and treasures that fill your heart with pleasure. You can communicate quite fruitfully now, which makes this an ideal time to put yourself out there and express your feelings. Finances also seem to be in the frame with Friday the ideal moment to ask for a raise or try for a better position or promotion. The Full Moon can produce an ending of a source of revenue, or you might successfully pay off a debt.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

Mercury from your sign is invigorating to you. If you’ve been in the dumps or behind the scenes, you will begin to get excited again for what is in store. It’s possible a key relationship is coming into frame, and the Full Moon will show a light on how far you have come, or how far you still have yet to go. Make your case on Friday. You can express yourself clearly and with conviction. Financial and professional matters benefit, making this a very valuable influence if you are seeking a raise or promotion.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

Very harmonious and agreeable energies prevail this week, especially where your most personal desires are highlighted. Next weekend is ideal for a quick getaway, even a day out of town can provide a completely reinvigorating experience. Work and health matters get emphasized over the Full Moon phase, and you may be completing an assignment or ditching a bad habit that has had a debilitating your productivity. The next two weeks are ripe with realizations that point you in the right direction. A property matter, inheritance or settlement agreement is resolved on Friday.

LEO July 23 – August 22

Your children or creative output is enhanced this week over the Full Moon, and you can come to a decision that has meaningful implications regarding these. Relational matters are also highlighted, and you might notice intuition is peaking regarding the direction a partnership is taking. It’s likely the person in question is going through their own changes and you need to be supportive of these. This story unfolds through out the Summer, but you get an indication now of what may be in store. Socially this is an exciting period, your calendar is likely full of meetings and events.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

This is a compelling period for your relationships, and even where disappointment may have prevailed in the past, something about the current ambience stimulates excitement about prospects on the horizon. The end of the week is one of the most romantic periods of the year, and you can easily step up a love connection if you are ready to show your cards. The Full Moon speaks to a professional or residential matter. It’s possible you are moving house to take up a promotion. On some level, an aspect of the past is fading away. Release is signaled in this period.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Professionally this week provides a brilliant atmosphere in which you can find success and prosperity. It’s possible an opportunity emerges (look towards the end of the week) through which you can showcase your talents or ambition somehow. A conversation on Friday gets the wheels turning. Mercury through Gemini and the Full Moon stimulates a project connected to media, especially where people at some distance are connected or helpful to you in some way. Expect a busy couple weeks where you lock down some of the vital ingredients to a proposal that will bring you notoriety.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

You should genuinely enjoy this week, Scorpio, so even if disappointments have shaken your confidence, the current ambience will genuinely enhance feelings of satisfaction and personal worth. Financial matters will culminate this week, and a few integral conversations about money which may be overdue will clarify what is coming in and that which is going out. An inheritance or property sale may also be in the mix, and there is a lot to be attended to in these regards. Friday is ideal for setting the seal on a contract or negotiation.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

A Full Moon in your sign this week carries very positive overtones. Friendships are highlighted and you can really combine your efforts with others for great results. A partnership or agreement is emphasized over the next two weeks with a lot of back and fourth between you and a rival, spouse or business partner. You may determine to start a new enterprise with this person and will likely make an agreement about the arrangement next Friday. You personal and private life are enhanced, making this a productive time for reflection and regeneration. Intuition is strong right now and you likely feel very in tune with all that is around you.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

Love is in the air and a meaningful commitment could come to the forefront this week. A Grand Water Trine emphasizes your connections, and with Venus traveling the area of meaningful partnerships, someone is going to show you exactly how much they care. Where your innate instinct might be to clam up your feelings this is really a more appropriate time to show them, as doing so will take your connection to the next level. The Full Moon likely demonstrates how much you have let go of since the beginning of the year. Work life bustles with action and activity. Take on as much as you can realistically, this has positive financial implications down the road…

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

Mars in your sign taps the Full Moon vibes on Tuesday and there can be a significant development with your social circle or network. you likely feel a strong sense of camaraderie as you and your crew reach a substantial milestone together. You are meanwhile getting a sense that changes are coming and your intuition is strong regarding the shape and direction your future life is taking. Very positive professional seeds are planted in this phase, with great results this Fall if you attend to these matters and nurture your dream carefully. Mercury from Gemini sees you exploring fun and novel ideas.

PISCES February 19 – March 20

This is a thrilling period for your development and attainment of a very personal goal or aspiration. True love and pleasure are also indicated, so you might just be bubbling with excitement over a romantic prospect that is being fulfilled. Next weekend is ideal for an excursion or adventure with your sweetie. A professional matter culminates over the Full Moon earlier in the week, revealing the current climate you are dealing with is a million times removed from the tough ambience you experienced in the years leading up to 2018. A sense of vindication could be stimulated, or you may realize it’s time to move away from a plan or trajectory that you no longer care to pursue. Domestic matters keep you busy over the coming weeks. Expect visitors.

Weekly Forecast 5/13-5/19

NEW WORLD ORDER

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

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

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

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

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

STARSCOPES:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Stargazer May Horoscope

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

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

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

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

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

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

STARSCOPES:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Stargazer 2 Weeks Forecast

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

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

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

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

STARSCOPES:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Weekly Horoscopes 2/25 – 3/03

FULL MOON IN VIRGO – MAKING PROGRESS

This is a week that advances several of the storylines that began in January, as well as very significant events that were triggered mid October (Mercury conjunct Jupiter) and mid November (Venus conjunct Jupiter). The developments that occur are not particularly overt nor make a lot of noise, but have deep emotional resonance that stimulates a very meaningful appraisal of how far the transit of Jupiter in Scorpio has gone to transform one’s personal relationship with intensity, passion and power. Growth through regeneration is possible, as is connecting to a sacred or spiritual ideal. The Virgo Full Moon will weigh in on that Thursday, but so long as you have not misled yourself or others, there is the potential for an outpouring of genuine beauty and idealism.

This is an especially potent introspection to have right now, with Jupiter retrograding in two weeks time, a certain submergence is called for over the coming months, potentially tied to the personal discoveries made this week. The next 14 days are still very vital and active for the emotional realm, so make the best of these aspects while you can make some progress. After that, Aries takes the reigns and the season of fire begins. Venus harmonizes both Pluto and Jupiter this week, indicating positive advancements in love and financial matters, but also for self worth and the creation of harmony. Venus – Pluto seeks connections that run deep and have a soul merger quality to them. Jupiter amplifies them and generates an ambience of pleasure and generosity.

Positive results from maneuvers and choices put forth in regard to personal transformation, again, in mid November (Jupiter) and early January (Pluto) begin to bear enticing fruit. It appears relinquishing a negative circumstance or otherwise taking hold of your personal power is an important theme. Continuity for these efforts are quite evident in this phase. Mercury has caught up to Venus and makes mutual aspects. It is easy to tune into awareness of exactly what is happening and why, at least instinctively. Mercury from Pisces “get’s it” without necessarily having the words to express it. Intuition is strong and trusting your feelings now is a valid expression of the absolute meaning of these transits.

The Virgo Full Moon on Thursday could provide a bit more of a challenge, as it lies in pretty precise opposition to Neptune, which shines a big bright light on any deception or illusions you may be naively or subconsciously rooted to. This can be a very vulnerable period: sometimes with Neptune you can just keep going and going on the expectation all is ok, and suddenly this Full Moon comes along and reveals not every thing is hunky dory in funky town. This doesn’t have to be the outcome, it depends on how close your vision of your life and the people in it are actually are aligned with reality, in which case this could be a genuinely magical moment.

If disappointment proves to be a factor, this is a good time to take a real good look at where delusion stems from and find a way to release it once and for all. More than likely it comes from within – the people, places and things that you have pinned your hopes on are not to be blamed – just released if they are only offering the pervasive uncertainty Neptune thrives on. A stable link to Saturn throws a lifeline, demonstrating a more productive avenue towards which to direct energy. Late Friday into early Saturday Moon makes a conjunction to Chiron, and a healing process can unfold.

EXTENDED FORECAST ON PATREON ->

STARSCOPES:

april2-copy ARIES March 20 – April 19
Your instincts point you in the right direction towards your goals and professional pursuits. Especially if you have experienced some growing pains here recently, relief comes in the form of hammering out a plan of action. Agreements and commitments make this possible. The Full Moon Thursday is a turning point as well, though you may realize you have to make concessions of a highly personal nature to develop the productivity you require at work. Burning the candle at both ends will no longer do.

may2-copy TAURUS April 20 – May 20
Friends and lovers may not see eye to eye in this phase, though someone you care for deeply could also be an inspiration to pursue a creative dream. People who have dissipating influences on you will need to be shown the door. Make room for love and friendships that provide you with real value, that value being acceptance for who you are without question. New connections form as you clarify your desires. A signal early Wednesday AM provides a strong reminder of what needs to get sorted in your domestic sector.

june2-copy GEMINI May 21 – June 20
Beautiful but elusive and intangible dreams are fomenting in your professional life. You could be achieving a cherished wish right now, or realizing a promise or commitment was a lot of hot air. The Full Moon impacts your personal life, and relocation to take a job offer could be a major factor this week as well. Some action is taking place behind the scenes, impacting financial matters. A decision you made early in the year is paying off now. Very good news and developments are on queue for your career Friday.

july2-copy CANCER June 21 – July 22
A great deal of passion and inspiration is present in your relationships right now, though the atmosphere may seem somewhat subdued, much transpires in the deepest realms of the emotions. Someone at a distance could feature largely in your story, though near or far you likely feel completely smitten. Check into financial matters early Wednesday, you get a clue or hot tip to follow that will align you with good fortune. Communicate your hearts desire over the Full Moon on Thursday.

aug2-copy LEO July 23 – August 22
The Moon from your sign early in the week stimulates you towards a personal initiative. Wednesday morning is especially advantageous for stating your aims. The atmosphere is otherwise a bit beguiling for you, as so much is percolating in your subconscious. This stimulates your intuition and flights of fancy. Follow a dream, but make sure the people making the offers are legit. A financial matter culminates on Thursday, this is a make it or break it moment for a stream of income.

sep2-copy VIRGO August 23 – September 22
There is an (imaginary) ocean that gulfs between you and your beloved, the two of you sending waves of emotion back and forth. The Full Moon Thursday is your chance to send forth a message, declaring your intentions, expectations and deepest longings. This comes back to you as a tidal force in two weeks time, during the New Moon in Pisces. What returns has the potential to completely set you adrift or to make those dreams come true. The distinction lies in keeping the wavelengths you send out crystal clear.

oct2-copy LIBRA September 23 – October 23
This is a period of recuperation for you, you require a more harmonious balance between your inner psyche and outer productivity. This is a matter that will consume your attention over the next two weeks, but has a positive connotation for your finances and can even lead to a new job and lifestyle by the middle of next month. It’s time to realize the illusion you can carry out your objectives without taking better care of your physical entity needs to be sacrificed. In it’s place, the realization of a significant, and glamorous promotion.

nov2-copy SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
You can get away with wearing your heart on your sleeve for once, your words register loud and clear over the coming weeks. For some this will implicate a personal project, for others a love relationship will be culminating in delicious moments of revelation. In one way or another, your heart’s desires are being fulfilled. Clarify your message on Thursday, as something quite lovely emerges in two weeks time that mirrors the desires you express during this pivotal Full Moon.

dec2-copy SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21
A strong pull between your personal commitments and your professional aspirations could be present this week, and some inner navigation could be required to extinguish some tricky dynamics with others, especially family members. Financial choices you made earlier this year begin to pay off, and you have a sixth sense about where to pursue leads that could have lucrative outcomes. You are reminded of a destination you would seek mid week, follow that inner compass.

jan2-copy CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
Your perception is wide open, and inspiration is flowing briskly. A creative project or the articulation or realization of your desires in a partnership could be very compelling this week. Something you set into motion earlier this year is finally gaining in momentum for you, and someone from afar, or an educational matter (perhaps both) have a deep influence on the developments you experience, especially on Thursday. Intimacy or a shared financial matter advances midweek. A choice you made late January is paying off.

feb2-copy AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Professional and financial matters are very well aspected this week, with positive news in frame, especially Wednesday and Friday. To make the most of this mostly harmonious ambience, you have to check your facts and figures, and make sure everyone who you commit to or with can deliver on those promises. It’s an enticing atmosphere, but also slippery and elusive. Don’t get caught out. A compromise or agreement of sorts is required of you Thursday.

march2-copy PISCES February 19 – March 20
It’s a very momentous week for Pisces, and so much is store for you personally and in regard to a significant relationship. Listen carefully on Thursday for a significant message, in two weeks time it will be your turn to step up to the plate and declare your intentions. If you are unsatisfied with what’s on offer, it might be time to cut the cord, though in an ambience as pervasively elusive as this one, you might do well to let feelings settle in for a few days time before making a crucial decision. Again, in two weeks you’ll be at a much greater advantage and more connected to your own desires.
