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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

STARSCOPES:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

STARSCOPES:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Weekly Forecast 1/21 – 1/27

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

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

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

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

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

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

april2-copy  ARIES March 20 – April 19
A communique regarding a professional matter, maybe a promotion occurs midweek and has strong financial implications for you.

You are much more at ease this week, especially when Sagittarius Mars stimulates you to come out of any shell you might have been hiding under and take a place in the Sun. A desire to embrace the future, and attend to even it’s challenges, replaces any doubt you may have had about the direction you should take to meet your destiny.

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

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

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

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

STARSCOPES:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

MARS CONJUNCT JUPITER IN SCORPIO – GENESIS AND REGENERATION

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

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

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

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

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

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

STARSCOPES WEEKLY

april2-copy   ARIES March 20 – April 19
It’s a very important week for your personal life, very strong emotions are being aroused on the homestead and there could come a breaking point between your familiar duties and professional aspirations. Events behind the scenes have a corresponding connection to these events, and a change in locale or residence may be required of you to make the jump in your career. Potent forces and an agreement have a dramatic impact on your finances this weekend, there are erotic undertones, so a spouse, current or potential may be at the crux of this. A personal or educational goal that got way sided last month gets back on track. By next week, the dust settles and you can move forward.

may2-copy   TAURUS April 20 – May 20
Your personal life is highlighted and your best moments this week will be spent with friends and comrades. You can pin your heart to your sleeve and express your desires with candor over the Full Moon phase on Monday. The emotionality of the general atmosphere will make it so you don’t come off as a sap, since everyones feeling the vibes. A troublesome financial issue that pester you last month finally finds resolution from this coming weekend into next. Discussions about shared income conclude shortly. This all comes just into to surrender to the passionate revelry your partner has in store for you next Saturday. Unpartnered? A sexy s/hero seems to be on their way shortly.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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