april2-copy

ARIES: Domestic and residential matters are the focal point of the next two months, and if you are having issues at home or with family members these will need to be addressed. A significant conversation at the end of June and the New Moon on the 23rd all portend big developments unfolding in your base of operations. The 26th is auspicious for decorating or making your home more relaxing. Choose a plant or art object that will bring you pleasure. Really positive financial improvements, possibly linked to new opportunities in your profession (especially around the 24th) can be expected throughout the month. Put your best self and work forward to make the most of these good vibrations. Inspiration on the 20th connects to your earnings potential. Tune in to creativity.

TAURUS: This will be one of the most pleasurable months of the year for you as a transit of Venus beginning June 7th infuses your life with luxury and pleasure. Mars in Cancer also stimulates a nice social ambience, and the 9th is particularly auspicious for a social event or special occasion. The 20th and 24th are especially amorous, and good for planning romantic interludes. If you are unattached circumstances might be right to hatch a fun new liaison. Finances remain in frame and ideas and negotiations can go well at this time. Neptune and Saturn are still at large, however and seem to seek to undermine your efforts. Keep your cool on the 13th and 18th. Strong forces behind the scenes are working to your advantage. A victory on the 1st shows you what you fought in April was worth it.

june2-copy

GEMINI: Sun and Mercury in your sign this month promise a busy period and a great time to make progress on personal goals and initiatives. Jupiter direct on the 9th sends fresh and positive impulses for your creative activities, boosting your confidence and desire to self expression. The 3rd (and to a lesser degree the 13th,) are great for getting out there and flaunting what you have got to offer. Dynamics with a partner will be lively, expect a significant culmination around the 9th. The Full Moon amplifies your desire to stage up a relationship. Entanglements on the 15th and 18th will force a definition of your boundaries with this person. Finances are also highlighted and there are profits to be made in an artistic enterprise on the 26th. Your imagination holds the key. An offer or agreement you make over the 23rd New Moon sets the stage.

july2-copy

CANCER: You get an upsurge of energy and can be very dynamic when Mars enters your sign on the 5th. You can equally be cranky, so watch how much you take on. You tap inspiration on the 26th, and can make progress in a creative project. Venus from Taurus on the 7th activates positive love mojo, and the 9th, 20th and 24th are super harmonious for connecting your hopes and dreams within your partnership. Single Cancer can make meaningful introductions on these dates if attending parties and events. Progress in a residential matter sees forward motion after the 10th, as Jupiter switches direction and enables you to make decisions with greater confidence. You may dwell on the past between the 7th – 21st. All is fine with this as long as you don’t let paranoia slip into the mix, worse yet, make a commitment or comment you didn’t intend to. Best to keep quiet during this brief, introverted phase. Sun and Mercury in your sign on the 22nd signal big new beginnings are on the horizon. State your intentions, wishes and desires for the coming year during the Cancer New Moon phase on the 23rd.

aug2-copy

LEO: A joyous and open hearted mood begins to prevail after a season of uncertainty. Professional life takes on a rosy complexion and you’ll find some really good offers are extended, especially around the 20th and 24th. Finding a way to make time for your social life while experiencing a tendency or desire to withdraw requires some negotiation of time and priorities. A tendency to withdraw in this phase is indicated, but there will be numerous social opportunities to attend to. Prepare to juggle a busy schedule, and carve out time for yourself where you can. The Full Moon on the 9th highlights a culmination in a personal creative project, or you may make progress in a love relationship or hear of a pregnancy, news about your kids, etc. Energy levels will probably be low on the 4th and 15th. Skip these for your major personal initiatives or important events and meetings.

sep2-copy

VIRGO: A harmonious and supportive ambience this month helps you rebuild after a season of uncertainty. You can clear the air in a partnership on the 1st. Strong romantic vibrations on the 9th, 20th, 24th and 26th all provide wonderful opportunities to experience pleasure and grow your bond. A love relationship that has gone through the ringer gets revitalized and you’ll see the rewards for the tough work you did in April, especially in the early part of the month. Professional aspects are still strong, with positive influences and associations being made in your career. This all makes for a very busy month! A Full Moon on the 9th can bring resolution to domestic matters, especially the ones that have been particularly challenging. There is something unconventional or unexpected about the agreement or arrangement you make now, but it has very positive implications. You may move or make a sudden change to your home.

oct2-copy

LIBRA: You’ll be hitting a good stride this month as Jupiter turns direct on the 9th. A great deal of activity in your profession could see you traveling and working hard. The New Moon on the 23rd connects with Mercury, making this a great time to start a marketing campaign or conduct outreach towards your enterprises or professional goals. The ambience is dynamic and even competitive. It’s time to fight for what you want and what you are worth. It could be easy to over extend or estimate your abilities on the 25th. Energy levels that are high right now will not remain so forever so consider the long game on this one before you jump. A sweet romantic moment on the 9th allows you to resolve some of the bigger challenges your relationship has endured this year. There can also be a key financial opportunity through an outside source or lender that assists in a career matter, such as starting your own business. Express your creativity, relax or travel to a fresh locale on the 26th.

SCORPIO: A work assignment or new job opens wonderful doors for you professionally on the 3rd – 4th. There is an unexpected quality to this offer or opportunity. Your inventiveness and independence pay off. A relationship flourishes as very loverly vibrations are illuminated in your committed partnerships. You may travel with your spouse, and the 9th, 20th, 24th and 26th are really stunning dates to find and seek pleasure within a relationship. Financial matters may keep you busy this month as well and negotiation for a loan, investment or other source of shared revenue can go very well around the 3rd, 18th, and 20th. The 13th is mixed, there are positive influences, but also some confusion lingering over any agreements. Hear what people have to say, but set aside big decisions for a better time. Financially you may see one source of income ending around the Full Moon of the 9th, or an agreement culminates at this time. Favorable influences preside and all turns out well here.

dec2-copy

SAGITTARIUS: You feel a strong sense of yourself and where you are headed during the Sagittarius Full Moon phase on the 9th. This can provide a nice relief where partnerships have been demanding for you. Although they continue to (hopefully in a good way!), this is still a nice time to appraise you mid year progress report and really dig in where you have not yet made as big of strides as you had hoped since your last birthday. Jupiter direct on the 9th opens the pathway to fulfillment and joy. Conviction returns to your enterprises, especially those linked with a group or organization you work with. Watch for office romance on the 9th, you could suddenly feel a wave of affection for someone close to you on the job. You enter a period of gestation from the 5th.

jan2-copy

CAPRICORN: A romantic partnership can really heat up this month, with very exciting developments culminating in your love life, especially around the 9th. Schedule events and connect with your special person on the 20th, 24th and 26th as these dates hold some real magical mojo for you. A New Moon on the 23rd brings a symbolic beginning to your union, and this could be the time to phase up a commitment or amend to find the love you desire and deserve if you are ready to find a mate. The ambience is definitely work hard/play hard this month and striking the balance will be a bit of a juggle with so many enticing developments in your personal life splitting your attention with a very energized work environment.

You can make choices that are authentic to your real desires now and also may get assistance from a family member.

feb2-copy

AQUARIUS: It’s a multilayered month as attention falls between the private and personal and a new job or position. A hard working phase begins around the 5th and you’ll be getting busy with something that will likely play a huge role in your success story this Fall. Inspiration presides on the 26th and you may be seeing progress made on an initiative you started developing in February if not January. The New Moon on the 23rd opens a door to a new professional landscape. Communications industries could play a role, or an assignment or new job can keep you very busy. Over the next four months you will be active doing work that will enhance your professional profile and reputation. By the later part of this year you will advance correspondingly so stay focused on long term goals and what you want to accomplish as you select your projects and make your commitments. Mid month is positive for communicating personal goals or creating strategy that will help you get a project off the ground. You could also be busy dating, and the 13th and 20th are great for connecting or growing a bond with someone special.

march2-copy

PISCES: You achieve a professional milestone on the 9th, as a Full Moon oversees and brings culmination to the hard work of the last two years. It might be time to turn in one hat and pursue a new course of activity as a project comes to completion. A great deal of activity in your residential zone from the 7th – 21st can offer a flurry of visitors or changes within the domestic environment. Contentious vibes on the 4th, 15th and 18th can rattle your cage. Take it easy on these dates as you may feel a bit vulnerable. Socially this continues to be a lovely time, and pleasure pursuits as well as day to day activities all provide stimulation and pleasure. The 9th, 20th, 24th and 26th are immeasurably blissful and should be spent among those you love deeply. Neptune retrogrades in your sign mid month, and your psychic sensors get a reprieve through the end of November. This is a period in which to process the events of the prior 7 months, especially the visionary stuff and give it some time to gestate. See what remains and stands out for you at the end of the year. True love takes hold of your heart during a blissful New Moon on the 23rd. Reveling your feelings will be an amazing trigger in a relationship.

STARGAZER FORECAST MAY 2016

Ace of Pentacles – Inner and outer richness; great success; unification of the body and soul, material and spirit, heaven and earth; wholeness. (Ziegler; “Tarot Mirror of the Soul”)

May stands out easily as one of the better months of the year so far, and having put some major difficulties behind us, there are incredible opportunities now to fortify our foundations and stabilize routines and activities while cultivating resources that can generate wealth and prosperity. Getting there takes some reorientation, as we come into the month under the auspices of Mercury Retrograde, which began in the final days of April. From Taurus, this cycle will see us reconsidering both what we value and what we consider our worth, though this review will manifest more specifically in the area of your chart in which it is occurring. Though Mercury is retrograde though the 23rd, the long range appraisal or conversation that takes place is connected auspiciously to the Jupiter – North Node/Virgo and Pluto/Capricorn trine. Thus we can act with conviction to move towards our future goals.

During the first week, the Sun plays a significant part in this conversation, illuminating the major topics we are contending with. A man or masculine figure could be a prominent feature in events. The Sun and Mercury are conjunct at 19 Taurus on the 9th, and this is where we begin to see our way out of the rabbit hole of the retrograde. A sense of renewal urging us to complete activities or goals we began towards the end of March will likely be stimulated. In hindsight, we will see the errors, and start to make an effort towards correction. Jupiter also turns direct this day, suggesting our fortunes are turning as well. The fact that Mars, Saturn and Pluto are retrograde can actually enhance a very positive atmosphere, they are the malefic planets after all! Open yourself to success and the fulfillment of life through which you can experience the pleasurable totality of your being. The 3rd (Sun – Jupiter) and 7th (Sun – Pluto) are highlighted, and significant growth opportunities emerge at these times.

It seems a great deal of research, negotiation or vetting is taking place this month. From Taurus the conversation is likely about money, compensation and resources, and for many of us this conversation is long overdue. Venus enters the earth triangle in the second week (8th – 14th) connecting with Jupiter on the 10th, then Mercury (RX) and Pluto on the 13th. Venus collaborating is so beneficial, we can apply tact and graciousness to any negotiation taking place. Venus energy also stimulates a wonderfully receptive ambience that opens doors both financially and romantically. It’s possible a creative or artistic project is on the radar. The 9th (Venus sextile Neptune) will speak to this, and is also an ideal moment for developing a charming romantic attachment.

From the 12th – June 1st, Mercury hangs in a tight orb to the grand trine, turning direct on the 22nd. There is incredible optimism, but also uncertainty, it’s best to parlay major decisions until at least the 30th (Mercury trine Pluto). I also really like the 1st and 2nd of June, which sees a rare and extraordinary grand trine from Mercury 17’ Taurus, Pluto 17’ Capricorn and North Node at 17’ Virgo. Technically, the North and South Node are mutually activated, but since Mercury is moving back towards the North Node, we can presume it’s heading in the right direction. Wow, what sparkling opportunities will arise out of this combo!?! We’ll have to wait and see! Of course manifestation requires you have been heading in the North Node direction yourself, and handling the untangling required of you during Mercury retrograde, it’s not just going to fall out of the sky. Many astrologers will suggest waiting until Mercury is out of shadow (June 8th) though honestly June is such a huge spanking mess, it may be best to sign, seal and deliver ASAP!

The Taurus New Moon on the 6th encapsulates all these themes, with a near stellium in Taurus all making contact within the grand trine. The period between the 3rd – 13th is the strongest, and there is an abundance of motivation and pleasurable energy, (though not any urgency, with Mercury and Mars in a sleepy way) and a degree of material progress can indeed be made here.

Taurus
Once planets start moving into Gemini on the 20th, the ambience begins to crackle and pop with nervous and anxious electricity. Coupled with Mercury direct on the 22nd, it’s going to get really busy, really quick. Hope you enjoyed the relative stability of the last few weeks, we’re about to enter the most intense mutable cross season of the year. As mentioned in the Mars retrograde report, The Sun – Mars opposition will take place on the 22nd, and is closely tied into the dynamics of the Full Moon in Sagittarius. A double whammy completion! Think back to June 10th of last year – Sun/Mars conjunction and also the November 11th Sagittarius New Moon. Venus is also in the mix, preparing to oppose Mars two days later. Triple whammy! Venus and Mars had made their conjunction November 1st. These points of initiation all would have signaled beginnings within significant new ventures, projects or relationships that are now culminating. It’s a huge moment of “how’s that working out for you?” though the truth is that we may not know yet. Mars retrograde is telling us to cool our heels as we might not be sure precisely where we are headed next. That all three are all coming up for review at once suggests a very dynamic environment, with many turning points in store, ready or not.

Jupiter is direct from the 10th at 13’ Virgo stimulating a more positive ambience for growth and the enthusiasm that may have been in short supply over the last few months. It’s possible now to see the bigger picture and feel faith in the outcome of our endeavors. Look to June 21st for a significant development, as Jupiter contacts the North Node in Virgo. Although Jupiter is constricted here, we have the opportunity to consolidate and expand our enterprises with a disciplined and methodical approach. It’s pragmatic, but this attention to the details and actions we take* over the next few weeks will yield a positive growth opportunity next month when Jupiter contacts both the North Node (June 21) and Pluto (June 26). (*This of course applies to projects that have already been put into motion, particularly last Fall. With so much retrograde energy elsewhere, this is not the time to start on a new endeavor!)

Jupiter will square Saturn on the 26th, a longer term aspect that occurred initially at the beginning of August last year, then again on March 25th. Jupiter (opportunity/expansion) and Saturn (discipline/restriction) have been working on each other – Saturn reminding Jupiter to act like a grown up, Jupiter ribbing Saturn to let loose, although this is the last in this series. How we balance responsibility with optimism has and will continue to be a significant part of our learning curve this year, with an adjustment within the long range objectives being made now, but also a great deal of pressure coming off afterwards. We can grow through disciplined actions, as also indicated by the strong Virgo emphasis at this time. After this, Saturn and Jupiter are done until the end of the year when they form the closing sextile of their 12 year cycle. How we negotiate the challenges of this time plays a major part in how things turn out in 6 months. With Jupiter now direct, what was previously a “no” might become a “yes”. Optimism taken with a small grain of salt can get us pretty far.

STARGAZER MAY HOROSCOPES BY SIGN:

ARIES: Your cash flow might be a bit loco this month, though you have much to gain by playing the long game and waiting for an offer that gives you what you are really worth. There may be some false starts, but by the end of the month a prospect connected to your profession comes through brilliantly. Keep negotiations open and remain optimistic with your eyes on the bigger picture. The pace of day to day life is vitalized from the 20th and all the way through next month, you may wish to use the first few weeks here to catch a breather while you can! Really positive social vibes and invitations can trigger a romantic meeting. Attached Aries will enjoy fun repartee with the spouse or partner. Attend an art show with or write a poem to the one you love. Walks through nature will be enchanting. The Moon is in your sign from the 3rd – 5th, making these the best and most powerful days of your month. After the 27th, Mars sees you reappraising important commitments and financial matters.

TAURUS: What an amazing month for Taurus, your forecast absolutely shines for May! Venus in your sign this month (the one and only transit you get this year) indicates it’s time to clarify your heart’s desires and open yourself to receive pleasure and good fortune. The New Moon in your sign on the 6th will set the pace, with really good vibrations pouring in on the 10th and 13th especially. OK, with Mercury retrograde in your sign there could be a snag or two, but you’ll be just fine, just delay making any hefty commitments until the end of the month. From the 20th the ambience shifts, and all that introspection and good fortune can be converted into an enhanced sense of self worth that allows you to get after a financial upgrade. Don’t waste your good fortune on mindless indulgences, play the long game for satisfaction that can last. You speak with incredible conviction on the 30th, so this would be a good time to make your case.

GEMINI: So much is going on internally, your insides are ripe and overflowing with incredible positivity – if you choose to see it that way. Perspective plays a bigger role than usual this month, Mercury retrograde can pull you back into the past, and that which you’d thought filed away and forgotten resurfaces. You can use this opportunity for reflection, and/or revisit matters that seek closure now. Or let it bug you out, the choice is yours! Your effectiveness (and clarity) return from the 20th, as the Sun in Gemini helps you put yourself and what you desire first and foremost. Venus collaborates from the 24th, signaling positive and potentially romantic developments, hang on tight tho, the next month is going to be a wild ride! The Full Moon on the 21st shows you both how far you have come (and how far you still have to go) within a close relationship! Prepare for some intensity, both the sweet and the salty kinds.

CANCER: May is a wonderful month for catching up with old friends or reinvigorating a past alliance. A retrograde Mercury signals it’s time to take a walk down memory lane, and hand in hand with Venus, a love relationship may be rekindled in this phase or stimulated by visiting a place from the past. Genuine feelings of fulfillment within a partnership on the 10th and 13th send strong beams of encouragement for your union, making these great dates to cultivate your bond with someone special and deepen your commitment. Matters at work can be somewhat vexing in the later part of the month, though it is possible to make a real breakthrough on the 26th if you can match your enthusiasm with perseverance to see through a challenging assignment. Keep to task and all will work out in the end! Your subjective space and intuition is incredibly heightened from the 20th, though mixed signals on the 22nd and 24th can be somewhat disruptive, you may find you are extra sensitized in this period.

LEO: The New Moon on the 6th can signal a phenomenal development for you professionally. Very enticing vibrations through out the first two weeks do much to boost your reputation and encourage growth. Meanwhile Mercury retro could bring a missed opportunity back into the frame and up for review. While you may feel like you are treading water here, you do your best to wait until the dust has settled towards the end of the month to see what really *sticks* or simply comes out in the wash. The financials get a boost as Jupiter resumes direct motion and here too you can make some real progress. Circle the 10th for a genuinely positive time to showcase your talents to the people who matter. Creativity shines in this period, though you may feel you hit a snag around the 26th that calls for a reappraisal. A child or creative matter could feature. After the 20th your social life buzzes with invitations and opportunities, making this a great time to connect with those mutually minded. This brisk pace carries you through the Spring months right into Summer, helping you work through some of the bigger dynamics implicating your personal life after the 27th.

VIRGO: Jupiter resumes direct motion in your sign, coupled with several earthy Taurus transits will help you to feel buoyed in the aftermath the innumerable changes and shifts you likely endured over the last two months. Circle the 10th as a wonderful day for leisure or recreation. No need to go to far from home, and probably better not to as Mercury retro can signal delays in travel through the end of the month. Cultivating a loving bond can also be enchanting in this period, both the 9th and 10th are favorable for catching romantic sparks. From the 20th, the topics shift to profession, reputation and long term goals. Jupiter direct has your best interests in mind and offers protection, but this is going to dynamic period of change for you – all the action is taking place on your angles (the areas of greatest significance in your chart: self – partner, home/family – career) and this is going to make for a big and bouncy ride for a few weeks. Use the signals you get in the first half to clarify your goals. Then, without surrendering to chaos, get ready to rumble, good luck!!!

LIBRA: Soul shaking intimacy at the gut level is featured this month, though the Mercury retrograde roundabout suggests either a double take on a ship that sailed or reworking the balance in an ongoing relationship that needs a good deal of tweaking. Finding the right formula right now is fun, as Venus occupying this area favors such unions, and in particular the financial ones. When Mercury about faces end of month you could be sealing a very lucrative deal or contract, maybe even tying the knot with your true love. Circle the 10th and 13th for exploratory discussions and conversations. No harm in talking… Just wait until at least the 30th to make any binding commitments. From the 20th the pace ratchets up a few notches and your social schedule just gets busy-busy-busy-busy. Through June. Which could be all the more reason to use the first three weeks for some private encounters.

SCORPIO: The interpersonal dynamics are featured this month with many a conversation or negotiation taking in place in your most key relationships. Very harmonious energy (Venus) adds a positive tone where uncertainty (Mercury retrograde) may be present. It’s quite possible a former flame is getting a second look, or a commitment is being reworked or clarified. Powerful and positive indications on the 7th and 13th especially point you in the direction of your heart’s true desire. The New Moon on the 6th is significant – bringing home the awareness triggered during your personal Full Moon the 21st of last month. Mars meanwhile comes to reoccupy your sign on the 28th, reigniting passions through July. A great deal of retrograde energy impacting you personally indicates that you are in a place requiring substantial reorientation to both your personal goals, as well as those within your closest relationships. From the 20th, things begin to get a bit more serious, and commitments nailed down. A vital conversation on the 30th helps you set things right.

SAGITTARIUS: Life maintenance and how you take care of your body and manage your time is highlighted, offering the opportunity this month to connect the positive influences affecting your productivity and wellness to enhance your income or save money. Professional auspices are also highlighted, as Jupiter comes out of slumber on the 9th, you begin a new phase of growth and development in your career. Work diligently towards those goals and milestones, as a really stunning development offered around June 21st is the outcome of what you put in over the next 6 weeks! Dicey dynamics can be present in your relationships meanwhile, pulling attention away from the goals you have set, the Full Moon in your sign on the 21st will be very revealing! You can be your own worst enemy on the 26th if you perceive personal obstacles or limitations are inhibiting your growth potential. Use the awareness you may experience at this time to relinquish a negative attitude you might have towards yourself. Your self talk will reveal a lot! Tune in.

CAPRICORN: Passion and pleasure reign supreme for you this month, though a Mercury retrograde could have you doing a double take with a former flame or patching thing up within a work-in-progress love affair. The New Moon on the 6th signals a new chapter and the 9th, 10th and 13th are exquisite for close encounters of the kinky kind, though the good vibrations radiate through the 24th. Travel or a publishing venture that may have sidetracked over the last few months comes back to the forefront after the 9th, though Mercury retro (till the 22nd) could provide a snag or two. A self defeating attitude or hangup with the past can dampen optimism for your enterprise around the 26th. Listen to your self talk for limiting attitudes at this time. From the 20th the pace quickens as work assignments demand a great deal of time and effort. The work you put in now manifests in the golden opportunities revealed after September, when Jupiter visits your house of fame, profession and reputation, opening doors to advancement and success.

AQUARIUS: You do well to attend to your roots and most personal life for the first few weeks as very harmonious transits affect your base of operations. Mercury retro can see the resolution of old issues, particularly with family or flat mates, which you will finalize towards the end of the month. From the 20th the pleasure principal, self expression and true romance all become very significant topics as numerous Gemini transits enliven the atmosphere and from here you will feel lighter and more at ease with yourself, especially after the 25th. Oh la la. You are still contending with contentious dynamics with friends, and the 24th and 26th can both be revealing of what issues may still need to be addressed within your crew or among colleagues. Mars back in Scorpio May 27 – August 2 gives you a second chance to reach your professional goals, though you may be regrouping through next month. Helpful vibrations in July will help you move up the ladder of success, consider the next two months a time of preparation.

PISCES: Some of the tension and focus coming off your professional agenda makes room for some really lovely social interludes. The 9th, 10th and 13th are positively magical for attending an art show or otherwise cultivating a romantic or creative association. Daily life and conversations will be infused with sweet tenderness. You may even meet a love interest in the course of your most routine activities. Mercury retrograde equally influences this area, and communication it seems, perhaps a contract or key piece of information, is held up until the end of the month. Don’t sweat this too much, everyone is kind of going through something, and all the pieces fall into place soon enough and you can make an informed decision. The domestic sphere bustles with activity after the 20th, and if you have needed to make changes to the living arrangements, the time will come from late May through June. Professional obligations may curtail otherwise positive developments in your relational sphere in the later part of the month. This has been an ongoing trend though it’s likely by now know what you need to do. If you haven’t yet connected with that someone special, luck improves after the 9th, with stunning developments in late August/September.

STARGAZER FORECAST APRIL 2015

March saw the end of a way of life for many of us, it was time to clear the way for the new and radically improved which we’ll come into this month. The positive influence of Jupiter direct at 12′ 35″ Leo on the 8th of the month cannot be understated. The growth and emancipation we have been seeking has sufficiently gestated, we’ve spent a great deal of time since last December considering what, where and how to reach our destination. At the end of that rainbow lies expansion of our enterprises, relationships, joy and fulfillment as well as the most positive expression of our generosity. The last few months were theoretical in nature: what lies ahead, and how do we get there? Though frustrating, the appraisal of what was and was not successful from the period of late Summer into Fall (2014) was both necessary and illuminating. Saturn testing the waters of Sagittarius added some structure to this philosophical inquiry, and allowed for the integration of strategy to inform our next moves, which will transpire this month.

Challenges from planets in Scorpio hindered progress during the period last Fall, as we were dealing with some pretty heavy stuff where relationships and money were concerned, and transformative events (November was pretty critical,) relegated our spiritual growth and personal potential to circumstances that demanded attention. Rested and refreshed, we emerge awake and engaged. The transit of the Sun through Aries is brilliantly timed and acts as a willing collaborator to the very auspicious developments occurring throughout April. Thursday April 2nd sees the trine of Sun to Jupiter from 12 Aries/Leo. See it as the Sun giving Jupiter a little wake up nudge, calling the sleeping giant to come out and play. Saturn will also harmonize Juno in Leo on this day, so making a commitment to someone or something will be beneficial and support the long range goals. Mercury, too, jumps into Aries (from March 30th) and lends a hand through communication. By the time of the Sun – Mercury conjunction (19 Aries) on the 10th, we see a clear course ahead!

The Lunar Eclipse, 14′ 24″ Libra, falling on April 4th will catapult us into the future, ready or not! Unlike the eclipse last year, which fell in the cross hairs of the Cardinal Cross, and elicited a pretty stormy phase of activity, this eclipse is reconciled through a harmonious link between the Sun and Moon to Jupiter (trine Sun, sextile Moon), so we are getting support on both ends from the benevolent contact made at this time. (The placement of Jupiter in your current chart is crucial to understanding where this benevolent assistance comes from.) The prickly Uranus – Pluto issues will continue to tie in, but the strength of that alinement is dissipating quickly.

Lunar nodes continue to activate a need to reconcile our independence with the evolutionary emphasis on partnership, by creating bonds with others to work mutually towards shared goals, enterprises or through love. Strong signals on the 1st (Sun conjunct South Node – 10 Aries) and 5th (Mercury conjunct South Node – 9 Aries) will point out how successfully we are attending to this, or conversely, serving an outmoded agenda. The Nodes, like the Moon, represent and function within a highly subjective space, guarded and hidden, sometimes even to ourselves. With contacts to the South Node, the liminal space between subconscious and conscious becomes bridged and hidden, negative patterns can become illuminated. This can be instructive for recognizing these limitations, but there can be a possibility of subconscious sabotage where we feel circumstances have become too narrow or limiting, as well. Events occurring or awareness triggered on these dates, or those that transpired March 2nd or 7th all tapped into this with everything being brought home during the eclipse.

It is in this liminal space that the potent nature of eclipses is most evident. As the South Node is activated, we find that certain impulses towards necessary endings are triggered. Again, this can happen right beneath the radar of our consciousness, and that we maneuver for these changes whether we are aware of our behavior or not. That job, relationship, or whatever – that is past it’s expiration date will come to an end, and the Nodes have been actively indicating this for a while. The eclipse is the catalyst for finalization. While events can feel disruptive, when we are able to stand away from them a few months or even a year down the line we realize that change (usually represented by endings by a Lunar Eclipse) had to occur.

Mars from Taurus (March 31st) offers a stable underpinning, energy is steady and persevering during this transit. Very constructive efforts can be made through out the month, with the 21st highly instrumental in the developments of the month over all. The New Moon in Aries on the 18th offers vitalizing awareness to new beginnings, where and how we should proceed. More on the other transits and aspects as they occur! ENJOY your month!

Your romantic life gleams with promise this weekend, as an eclipse stimulates a promising affair of the heart, or mutually triggers an urgent desire for self expression. The people you share your life with, friends and groups in particular play an interesting role in what develops. On one hand a social event or occasion can bring you the introduction of a lifetime, on the other hand your association with your go to group of friends could be holding you back from making a meaningful connection with someone one on one.

It seems that your earnings act as a very positive feature, enhancing your ability to shift circumstances at home in your favor. Relocation to accept a prestigious work opportunity may also be a factor here.

LEO: Pay close attention to how you feel on Monday, the Moon transiting your sign sensitizes you, and you begin to feel rumblings of positive changes set to occur within yourself and your environment. Mars from Taurus on Tuesday signals a shift in energy towards achievement and accomplishment, as you design it for yourself. The atmosphere will be competitive and enlivening.

Life changing events have likely already signaled the direction of sweeping transformation (a story that has played out over the prior year) with more in store from this weekend and over the next 6 months. Much of this has to do with a process of personal redefinition that has directly implicated your partnerships. Endings and beginnings feature largely during such a potent phase as this and with Mars in Taurus, (your house of sex, death and transformation) a relationship can heat up quickly as you address your evolving security needs. This can apply mutually to a business or love relationship, though the key ingredient here is TRUST and the extent to which you have learned to trust yourself will be reflected in how successfully you can navigate the upcoming terrain and receive the cooperation of others.

Midweek is a good time in which to dispose of any worn out models of conduct in a relationship.

Something is relinquished in this phase, and there may be a need to mourn or reflect on it’s passing. A part of you, your life and your consciousness has truly come to and end, and it is time to let it go. Events mid week will signal this, with the eclipse Saturday bringing everything home. You’ve been quite aware of this transformation for a long time, as it has played out in the deepest part of your psyche for over a year. In this period you realize, perhaps, it’s not just time to say goodbye, but that is has already left. With every breath you release it. Acknowledgment of it’s departure may prove to be more equivocally more significant than it’s actual demise was. You may actually be relieved, especially when you become aware that what was left behind was limiting your perspective or diminishing your self worth. You are finally beginning to see you have what it takes. Go there instead.

Recent events stimulated remarkable creative urges, Mercury now enters the picture and you can easily articulate these feelings through art, writing or pleasurable enterprises. Thursday is phenomenal for taking on a new project related to your creativity or self expression. The ambience is also ripe for expressing romantic feelings to someone you care for. Mars in Taurus from Tuesday makes this a good period in which to address health and life management issues.

It might be time to step up to the plate and make your aspirations come true, or you might reach a long worked towards milestone of achievement around this time. A tense square to Pluto in your sign suggests you might be a bit obstinate towards claiming the opportunities that arise around this point, though mutually a spouse or benefactor features largely here and a substantial sum of money might be a part of the picture. A sudden change (Uranus) to the domestic arrangements also factors here.
