Stargazer Weekly Forecast 1/13 – 19

PRACTICAL THINKING

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

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

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

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

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

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

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

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

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

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

CANCER June 21 – July 22

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

LEO July 23 – August 22

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

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

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

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

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

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

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

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22 – Dec 21

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

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19 

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

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

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

PISCES February 19 – March 20

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

     

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.

EXTENDED FORECAST AVAILABLE FOR SUBSCRIBERS ->

STARSCOPES:

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.

STARGAZER JANUARY 2016

HAPPY NEW YEAR STARGAZERS!!!! Wow, have I been so busy finishing the book and new app for you I’m actually just getting to the January horoscopes here on New Year’s Day. Both the book (available now), and the app (available on iTunes), turned out beautifully and I am really pleased to be able to offer these. Finally catching a breath, spending the holiday with my son and so excited about my 40th birthday, coming up soon on January 8th. It’s true what they say, being a Capricorn really gets better as you age. Experience offers confidence and security you just don’t have as a younger person. And this is such an incredible year to look forward to! We have amazing support from the cosmos, and I sincerely believe a positive turn of events is going to really transform the lives of so many people around the globe. If you didn’t get a chance to read the 2016 Overview, check it out here. I chose the YUD YUD LAMED meditation (above) to begin the year on a note of release and looking forward, with incredible positivity, to all that lies ahead.

January starts in slow motion, Mercury is stationing Aquarius preparing to go retrograde on the 5th. Mercury hovers in Aquarius, and for the first week of the month it’s like were floating in space, and can see a glimpse of the future, but have to turn back to take care of unfinished business. As always, while a Mercury retrograde phase indicates a slow down in communication and commercial matters, this particular one has two very interesting features, the first of which is a notable contact it makes to the Jupiter – North Node conjunction as it conjuncts the Sun itself. Even the Moon from Pisces taps in, offering incredible emotional intuition into the conversation that is occurring now.

Jan 14. Sun - Merc

 

Jupiter is retrograde at the time of the North Node conjunction, suggesting we get an intonation of what is really set to occur June 21st, when they meet again and Jupiter is direct. The planet of luck and optimism contacting the symbolic point of our evolutionary objective twice in a year is quite amazing! We may get fortunate assistance (Jupiter) to meet those objectives or luck and prosperity is stimulated by doing the Virgo North Node work, maybe both. The better we are doing it – the more we receive. This first transit, (again, because Jupiter is debilitated) is a signal of what could potentially be. Use the information you receive to work on building positive karma towards what you want most to receive by June 21, when they meet again. Celeste Teal explains of the union “There is often a helpful person in the life who acts as a catalyst to financial or spiritual growth. Publishing ventures go well or there are opportunities here.” Of North Node Virgo she writes: “Now, you must learn discrimination about those you choose to help, practical planning and how to clearly define goals for yourself.” (From the book “Lunar Nodes – Discovering Your Soul’s Karmic Mission.)

The fact that Sun – Mercury conjunction (from Capricorn) is taking place at the same time and in a perfect trine is a really incredible synchronicity. Be prepared for a very important communication or awareness coming January 15th, what occurs is miraculous, and helps us move towards the future, even if it takes a bit longer to get there. Another big thing with the Mercury retrograde is the long conjunction to Pluto for the last week of the month. We can probe deeply for a solution at this time, conversations and thinking will be intensified, we want the truth and will not settle for anything less. While Pluto can be harsh, it also represents both our individual and collective ability to transform, so this long, maybe tough, dialogue that occurs at the end of the month does offer us the opportunity to make a breakthrough and transform where we have sought to. Mercury will be direct from January 25th.

Mars delves deep into Scorpio on the 3rd, it’s orbit slowing as it prepares for retrograde beginning April 18th at 8 Sagittarius. As mentioned in the 2016 overview, Mars sextile to Jupiter February 13th is the last significant outer – planet aspect Mars makes until August 24th, when it conjuncts Saturn. This suggests on one hand that Mars will set it’s own agenda, not being influenced by outer forces for so long, though it also indicates our actions don’t have much impact on the outer world mutually, so you basically have from New Years through February 13th to make an impression where you need to!

Mars in Scorpio has deep reservoirs of tenacity, though from this placement actions taken are likely concealed or taking place under cover. Extraordinary passion is aroused, and with Saturn no longer here holding back the energy of the Scorpion (as was true during the last transit), the full intensity of this placement can be expressed. Intimacy can deepen in this phase, as extraordinary feelings of closeness between lovers connects them to higher reality. Explore the depths of your love this month, it has much to reveal to you.

Daily transits and January horoscopes are below! The daily aspect readings are from the Stargazer 2016 app, which this year includes a planets in aspect guide in addition to the calendar and horoscopes, suitable for interpreting daily aspects, or those occurring in your chart.

JANUARY SCOPES –

ARIES: You go deep this month Aries, as your ruling planet moves into secretive Scorpio. Meanwhile, you continue to unleash your inner party girl, especially on the 12th, and you can send mixed messages to a romantic prospect if you come across too aloof. January 8th is positive for making a commitment in a relationship you hope will endure. Your career is a big focus this month and the 15th offers a stunning culmination for you professionally. Sometimes you have to go backward before you can move forward. An old colleague may have a hot prospect for you. Wait to sign the dotted line until 30th, when all the fact and figures finally fall into place.

TAURUS: A partnership is heating up big time, Mr. T, with the 18th and the 30th serving up some of the most positive indications for your romantic life in quite some time. Skip the 5th for anything too consequential. Commitments of a financial nature can successfully be made January 8th. Make a budget you can really live with. Your frontiers are wide open, and pleasurable pursuits including a love relationship are favored on the 15th. A meeting with destiny is on the cards. From the 23rd, you become irresistible. If you travel this month, you are more likely to go to place you have been before, perhaps to catch up with old friends. The 13th – 15th is a marvelous time to plan an excursion, just be mindful of Mercury retro hi jinx.

GEMINI: Things can get a bit prickly over shared finances towards the end of the month for you, Gem, and if you have been waiting to hear back about a loan, grant or settlement, you are going to be waiting a bit longer. All the details will fall into place at the end of the month. Circle the 30th for important negotiations. You have a conversation or get information mid month that has a very positive impact on your residential situation. Clues revealed on the 15th get you on track with your destiny, particularly if you have been considering relocation. A love relationship gets more attention: the more affection you sprinkle on that certain someone, the more they sprinkle you back. If it’s all dust and cobwebs up in there, you get a strong indication why around the 8th of January.

CANCER: Your key relationships are a big topic this month, and you may find you are reconnecting or reconsidering an alliance with someone from your personal past tense, Crab Cakes. Mid month is remarkable for negotiations, particularly those related to business dealings, and the 15th is marked with the stamp of destiny. See what comes up, wait until the 30th to make up your mind, though. Your New Year’s resolutions for wellness get a boost from Venus through the 23rd. You can make your biggest strides on the 12th. From the 23rd, she brings good fortune to your partnership arena, and you may see a commitment intensify over the final week of the month.

LEO: A Full Moon in your sign on the 23rd signals closure to some aspect of your life, Lion-ess. It is the appropriate time to celebrate your victories and release that or those you no longer need. You’ve got your mind on your money and you money on your mind in the meanwhile. Key negotiations about a job or for a better position mid month can offer the kind of prosperity and security you desire. It is wise to wait until after the 25th to commit. Matters of love, affection and creative longing you so seek to express are also highlighted. You can make a commitment within a love relationship or to your personal artistic process on the 8th. For inspiration, watch Madonna: Truth or Dare. Whatever personal craft you ply, you can take from her example an unwavering commitment to her art, as well as her longevity. Food for thought…

VIRGO: Pleasure is on your mind, goddess, though things get squirlly in lover land for a minute while Mercury retrogrades through the house of true romance. If someone from the past pops back into the picture, take it with the proverbial grain of salt. Mid month is kismet, however, and events and conversations, particularly those regarding children and the future of a love affair point you in the direction of the future. Being true to yourself and values pays dividends in this phase, possibly in the form of incredible prosperity. By the end of the month you feel the good vibrations in your love life washing over you, and you find the words and passion to articulate your (kinky) desires to the one you woo. The 30th is ridiculously pleasurable. Make time for love.

LIBRA: The right course of action is to maintain a low profile, like vanish, retreat, withdraw. You find your greatest treasure within right now, and despite a nice social vibration, you are finding the value in limiting your social circle to a few, really important people at this time, you’ll see why around the 8th. An exciting if not unexpected development in a relationship (either for business or pleasure) on the 12th paves the way for a major residential development by mid month. Mercury retro can stir memories of the past, but also serves to remind you of a goal you may have had for relocation that never came to fruition. The 15th can yield a dream or premonition that leads you to a form of prosperity. Rest, relaxation and space and head clearing is the key to finding this so take your time. From the 23rd you’ll seek to make a house into a home, a decision you make on the 30th signals sweeping, necessary changes to your residence.

SCORPIO: Mars in your sign infuses you with conviction and passion to go after all your desires with a level of intensity you have unlikely felt since Fall of 2012, the last transit you got before Saturn moved through your sign. Now that you’re all grown up, you are likely to make better decisions for yourself, (hint: it’s way more awesome to use your power to CREATE what you want rather than to take it from someone else) and you get much farther with the self awareness that you possess now. A Full Moon on the 23rd sees your professional star is on the rise, you may get great news of a promotion or launch your own business. A financial cue January 8th sets the stage. A meeting or conversation mid month reveals a stunning opportunity. One more hint: it has a major (positive) implication for your love life.

SAGITTARIUS: You are in the midst of reorganizing financials this month, with very significant developments mid month that have major implications that positively enhance your professional prospects. A kismet meeting on the 15th gives you a major advantage, and the desire to make the most of an opportunity. Venus from your sign offers a nice ambience for pleasure and romance, especially around the 12th, when an unexpected meeting occurs. Mars in the area of endings for the next two months can signal a period of deep reflection and a need for withdrawal. You awaken to the truth within. Vision and intuition is heightened on the 18th.

CAPRICORN: It’s a whole lotta Cappy right now, with a brilliant New Moon on the 9th illuminating your ambitions (and there will be many) as well as the incredible prospects you have for this year. Jupiter and Pluto are close by urging transformation and growth. Contact or communication between the 12th and 15th reveal an incredible opportunity is right at your finger tips – though you might have to travel across the globe to make the most of it. By the end of the month, specifically the 23rd it all begins to come together, brilliantly and you can set off blazing that trail. Venus from your sign ushers in a highly favorable ambience for you. You feel alluring and can enjoy pleasurable experiences now. The 12th reveals an exciting insight into a residential matter that puts you quite at ease.

AQUARIUS: Strategy for the next few months will be required of you as Mars transits Scorpio. While you have extraordinary energy and conviction at your disposal towards your professional ends, with Mars retrograding back over this part of your chart in June, is it worth it to lay it all on the line if you are just going to have to go through it all over again this Summer? The answer is absolutely YES. What ever your heart is telling you to go for, go for it. The next 6 weeks are crucial to your success this year, and the work you do now paves the way for the even more amazing work you are going to do in July. Get all in and go for it! A lot is going on behind the scenes, and your intuition is strong right now. Pay special attention mid month, clues can reveal a very lucrative source of income for you.

PISCES: Mercury retrograde can see in touch with old friends this month, and a harmonious social atmosphere presides. Attend events mid month, you could cross paths with a beautiful stranger on the 15th who changes your life forever. Destiny favors this union for you at this precise moment. Mars energizes you with a positive beam from Scorpio, a brilliant harmony on the 18th taps you right into the source of inspiration. Clues will be subtle but reveal your desires. Your reputation is on the rise, and a good indication that all the hard work has (and will continue to be) worthwhile comes in on the 8th. The 30th is marvelous for creative and romantic matters, the ambience is ripe to declare your love for someone.

STARGAZER DECEMBER OVERVIEW – VENUS IN SCORPIO: INTO THE CHASM

Mercury goes into shadow on December 20th, on a conjunction to Pluto at 14 Cap. This will be one of the predominant themes of the upcoming retrograde cycle (January 6 – 26) and matters that enter negotiations now will experience modifications through January 31. Events and conversations today will signal the beginning of this process. Mercury with Pluto adds intensification to our thinking, and suggests much is going on in secret, perhaps even subversively. With Venus in Scorpio adding allure to that which is hidden and mysterious, this particular cycle is about depth and reaching far beyond the shallow artifices of the material realm.

Saturn in Scorpio brought a profound appraisal of intimacy and sexuality and taught us the value of the connections and the commitments we make with others. The message was not to take them lightly, nor take them for granted. With Saturn having moved on and this the first transit of Venus since, we are given the opportunity to build on these lessons and now cultivate a more passionate bond with our lover, spouse or mate. There is the potential of healing now through intimacy as well as the relationships through which we experience them. The transformational power of love is heightened and the experiences we have through sexual relationships brings us into a direct confrontation with the depths of our very being. A significant catharsis occurs now. Venus trine Neptune, Venus sextile Pluto and Jupiter as well as Venus trine Chiron (Dec. 20th- 17 Scorpio/Pisces) transits stimulate a very potent ambience for cultivating deeply meaningful romantic bonds.

Sagittarius Sun and Libra Mars continue to bestow a very optimistic and generous social ambience. The mood is upbeat and outgoing. The New Moon on the 11th portends a very beneficial but likely unanticipated event. Connections to Mars (sextile) and Uranus (in opposition) indicate an opportunity timing back to an innovative project we began around March 11th when Mars – Uranus conjoined at 14 Aries. There are some really stimulating and electrifying currents to be sure. Mars square Pluto earlier in the week suggests there are some obstacles to overcome, and even a confrontation with very obstinate and oppositional forces. We may find we have the courage or conviction to fight against the restrictions we have been living with and stand up for ourselves.

Sun (Dec. 19) and Mercury (Dec. 8) square to the Nodes signals a need to reorient ourselves to the evolutionary intent of North Node in Virgo. We got clues to these changes in March and September during the eclipses. Because we don’t know what the future looks like yet, we likely experience this more as a reminder of what we must release and let go of to get there. Although these transits can be some what painful, (letting go is always tough!) the awareness stimulated now is very useful, allowing us to check in with ourselves and see where we are headed. Intuition is strong during these transits and much can be learned from engaging the sensitivity we encounter.

Uranus goes direct on the 26th, bringing the forces of liberation back into the midst. For 12 days ONLY (Jupiter goes retrograde on January 8th,) ALL THE PLANETS are direct!
