Weekly Forecast 11/18 – 24

WEEKLY FORECAST:
While not the biggest week on record for aspects, an incredibly volatile Full Moon in Gemini at the end of the week more than makes up for it. A t-square involving Gemini – Moon opposite Sagittarius -Sun/Jupiter squares Mars in Pisces stimulating a lot of mutable (adaptive) energy and likely creating a sense of disorientation or even crisis. Underscored by Mercury retrograde, the ruler of the Full Moon, an extra layer of complexity emerges during critical culminations in this phase. Those with chart factors in early degrees of mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) will feel this most intensely, as they will be aspected at this time. Since adjustments to the recent change of guard – Mars/Pisces and Jupiter/Sagittarius are still being made, this can all come on quite suddenly.

Mercury had angled Neptune as it stationed retrograde, making an almost perfect, but not quite exact square, which will finally culminate on December 24th. This could come out as a desire to understand or reveal something illusory, but something inside isn’t quite ready to confront it just yet. Neptune resumes direct motion next Saturday, having been retrograde since mid June. Here you will begin to see progress in the area Neptune rules in your chart by house as well as the area being transited (13’ Pisces). For what it is worth, the apparent backwards trajectory of Mercury will put it touch with Jupiter two more times – again next week and then on December 24th. Large scale endeavors seek escalation, and by the end of the year there is the potential to put something in motion connected to media, higher education or exploration.

Mars square Jupiter on Monday provides a jump start for this endeavor, though from Pisces, energy is muted, and the undercurrent is a bit unusual. Still, you can use this to check into a source of inspiration. Likely there is a development in a story line that began in early January, and events around this time are likely to remind you that while the trajectory on this one may have been a bit convoluted (Mars retrograde), that you were on a path towards something, even if the objective or destination has been altered substantially. Mars/Aries and Jupiter/Sagittarius will combine more effortlessly towards the end of January next year, and depending on how well you navigate a sudden and potentially bewildering turn of events this week, your efforts are likely to pay off well in about two months time.

temperance

Sun moves into Sagittarius on Thursday, bringing more emphasis to the fire element, stimulating inspiration and enthusiasm. With Mercury and Venus both respectively moving back towards Scorpio in December, this won’t last for too long, so enjoy the sense of regeneration and confidence that precipitates over the coming weeks. The Sun will meet Jupiter next week, beginning a new cycle of optimism, enthusiasm and expansion at 4’ Sagittarius, opening the door to adventure and new horizons. If things get a bit dicey this week, hang in there! Take it a day at a time. Much more is in store on the other side.

Weekly Forecast 11/11 – 17

RELEASING CONSTRAITS

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

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

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

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

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

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

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

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

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

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

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

CANCER June 21 – July 22

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

LEO July 23 – August 22

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

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

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

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

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

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

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

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

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

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

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

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

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

PISCES February 19 – March 20

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

STARGAZER AUGUST FORECAST

Sands continue to shift this month, though some of the volatility appears to be dissipating. Mercury and Mars in retrograde suggest a convoluted path, though positive outcomes are possible if you are willing to renegotiate and work through the unexpected developments that transpire. The most crucial events are likely to occur around the Leo Solar Eclipse on the 11th. Mercury will have moved its way back to the degree of the eclipse in the early days of the month, signaling several key conversations or pieces of information that have a bearing on where this all lands are at play.

This is all more likely to culminate towards the end of the month, when Mercury returns to this degree after resuming direct motion. (On August 29th, at 18’ Leo, to be precise.) Jupiter from Scorpio plays a role in the configuration – making two square aspects, both at the time of the eclipse and again just prior to the return of Mercury to the eclipse degree, indicating a need to dig deeper, emotionally and psychologically, to resolve whatever is at stake here. These are pretty obstinate and temperamental signs, so some matter of ego or power tripping has to get sorted out between them before progress can be made. Mercury turns direct on the 19th, harmonizing to Venus, signaling an amenable agreement or positive news shifts the trajectory forward.

Venus moves from Virgo into Libra on the 6th, offering a diplomatic ambience to underscore all of these developments. Venus is quite far ahead of the Sun at this point and enters retrograde shadow early next month, infusing Autumn with relational reassessments, but more on that later. For now, Venus is happy in the sign in which she governs and makes a productive aspect to Mars in Aquarius, signaling a positive development within an association and enhancing connectedness in both romantic and working partnerships. Testing aspects to Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn will challenge these alliances mutually, and relationships have to transform as well as demonstrate they have the ability to serve long range objectives. Those that last through this period are rock solid, Venus retrograde notwithstanding.

Mars retrogrades back into Capricorn on the 12th (through September 10th) adding some gritty resilience to all efforts being made in this period. An unfulfilled prospect ranging back to early May can now come to fruition. Resuming direct motion at the same time Mercury direct conjuncts the Leo eclipse degree (the 26th – 29th are particularly auspicious,) pulls the trigger on everything else that has percolated throughout the Summer months, signaling a substantial shift forward.

PISCES FULL MOON

Pisces Full

Check out the cool kite feature between Sun – Moon to Saturn + Uranus. Also a very diggable harmonic between Jupiter, Pluto + Neptune. Meanwhile, Venus is square Pluto ☠️

Full Moon in Pisces on the 26th augments all of this as the Sun – Moon polarity taps the trine between Saturn and Uranus which lasts from August 14 – September 14. The final Jupiter – Neptune trine (August 19th) underscores the inspirational themes that are present during the Full Moon and a balance between the rational and innovative is tempered with insight from the spiritual realm. Intuition serves well in this phase and from this place the constructs of a brand new life can begin to be put into place.

When Mercury is direct from the 19th you’ll swiftly see progress where a real estate negotiation may have stalled over the prior month. The 30th is a crucial date, as Mercury reaches the degree of the eclipse and releases a great deal of bottled up energy. Conversation and negotiations reach a fevered pitch. Mars direct in Capricorn on the 28th gives you a bit of the va va voom. Uranus retrograde from the 8th signals a lessening of The Intensity.

Saturn and Uranus combine fruitfully, offering you an opportunity to bring some stability to your new found independence. A romantic getaway on the 19th speaks to your hearts’ deepest desires.

GEMINI – The Twins

While it’s a bummer Mercury and Mars are moving at backwards trajectory, this will still stand out as a really exciting month for your social life and maybe even to see a special romance grow. While it’s not really advisable to start new relationships (Mars retrograde suggests past life connotations,) there could be some nice escalations in an ongoing relationship, though the 9th looks a bit dicey. An eclipse on the 11th can see you moving on a new project, though it could get off to a slow start with Mercury still on backwards trawl for another week still, nice and easy. Spirituality and intuition are highlighted. You find a deep inner reserve of strength. Professional rewards are due, as a Full Moon on the 26th couples with this strength and offers an opportunity to move in a really heart guided and bold new direction. Events on the 19th tell you that you’re heading in the right place.

CANCER – The Crab

A relational matter you’d thought been put to rest crops up again in the latter part of the month. It’s also possible someone you had written off returns to the scene and you might consider another go at it. Super romantic vibes on the 19th could make this reunion an easy sell, but think this one through before you commit. Events on the 26th speak volumes about why or why not this person is just so right/wrong for you. Financials are still in the frame, but Mercury retro through the 19th still muddies the waters here. An Eclipse on the 11th and a conversation or insight on the 8th can yield clues to a resolution, just don’t expect quick results. Look to the 30th for the door to open. Home is where the heart is and you’ll be happiest entertaining and lounging around the house. A redecoration project or fresh coat of paint can work wonders now. Rose and pink colors, applied in moderation, activate positive Feng Shui and break apart stagnant channels of energy for you.

LEO – The Lion

A degree of harmony is restored this month, even Venus and Mars connect briefly, softening some of the rougher energy fields remaining in the aftermath of last month. An eclipse in your sign on the 11th coupled with Mercury direct on the 19th sets you back on course. Insights and conversations on the 8th will reveal a solution, you will be able to put these into motion shortly. Venus in Libra enlivens the social life and your day to day encounters with others. A love connection is super sweet on the 7th, regardless of what have been through, and a single Leo could strike up an interesting love connection in the most casual day to day activities. Mars back in Capricorn on the 14th (for 4 weeks) could indicate having to go back to complete or retool an unfinished work assignment. It’s possible something wasn’t done right the first time and has to be sorted out. By the 28th things resume a slightly less sluggish pace, it will be easier to complete this in the beginning of September.

VIRGO – The Maiden

The theme of endings continues as you make peace with the past and enjoy some quietude, perhaps a retreat. The 8th is ideal for setting up a meditation practice or committing to a course of psychotherapy if you feel you are ready for that. (Everyone and anyone can find benefit!) The 11th also sees a door closing on the past, and you’ll feel the load lighten as you say goodbye to a life you no longer need to live. Venus and Mars team up to make some magic and you can see a nice boost in income or grab an assignment that adds a few bucks to your bank account. Don’t spend it all in one place as a reality check or shortage on the 9th or 26th is likely if you do. Mars reenters Capricorn on the 14th, maybe there is unfinished business with a former love attachment that didn’t get off the ground the first time? The Full Moon on the 26th can bring relational matters to culmination. Commitments made now are built to last and will stand the test of time.

LIBRA – The Scales

Shifts in atmosphere this month make it easier to deal with some of the challenges that may have emerged in late July, as Jupiter and Neptune generate harmonious conditions in your work life and you’ll have opportunities to profit through imaginative and creative projects and assignments at this time. Venus in Libra from the 7th supports this and you’ll likely see an upturn in both your natural artistic affinities and a more pleasurable ambience over all. A meeting with the one you desire, even if brief, on the 7th will work wonders for a relationship that is going through hard times or separation. You’ll also start to find your way with a group project and developments on the 11th and especially after Mercury goes direct on the 19th will get you back on your way. Mars in Capricorn (retrograde) from the 13th signals unfinished residential issues that need to be addressed. It gets easier after the 28th to resolve these matters.

SCORPIO – The Scorpion

You get indications, especially around the 8th and 11th of the direction in which you need to take a professional endeavor. In another weeks time you can put this into motion, there is still a missing piece to this puzzle. Events that occurred in early June play a role and you know you have to deliver on an agreement you made. An electrifying partnership stabilizes a bit this month. It’s been exciting, but you are ready for a little less buzz. It will be nice to get a nights sleep. Romantic feelings become submerged, and you may think about who and what you have experienced this year so far, where you are now. You reach a crossroads on the 26th, time to decide to stay or go. Commitments made now will stand the test of time. You may be surprised what you agree to. A prior agreement could require review from the 14th, though from the 25th – 28th it gets dynamic again. Professionally you begin to regain your momentum.

SAGITTARIUS – The Archer

This is an exciting period for you socially and it’s possible you will be connecting with old friends and colleagues this month. A reunion could produce a new romantic interest around the 8th, as contacts will be very vibrant and exciting. With so much retrograde activity occurring, you will have to wait and see if this connection was built to last. You actually enjoy yourself a lot more if you detach yourself from seeking an outcome. Live in the moment. A financial reality check on the 9th could trigger some anxiety. As Mars reenters Capricorn, you’ll seek out solutions to problems that have been evasive. Mars direct from the 28th will give you the wherewithal to make a necessary change or complete an unfinished job through the first few weeks of September. A Full Moon in Pisces on the 26th points to a substantive change in your living arrangements. You could be making modifications to your home to accommodate a new business enterprise. Alterations that occur at this time will be enduring and have a powerful effect on your earnings.

CAPRICORN – The Seagoat

Uranus retrogrades early in the month, slowing the pace of crossing boundaries towards exciting new frontiers and recently acquired freedom. You have a few months to take it all in and determine where you want to go next. Professionally you could be in the spotlight, as Venus brings style, charm and diplomacy to your public image and reputation. A nice link between Venus and Mars on the 7th could land you a lucrative professional promotion or upgrade. Mars will be back in your sign from the 13th, and you’ll be eager to accomplish a great deal. It gets easier when Mars is direct after the 28th. An inspiration on the 19th could lead to a fun creative project you may work on with a group of friends. Writing, theater or a multi – media project could be very appealing. An eclipse on the 11th, followed by Mercury in direct motion a week later signals the successful conclusion of a negotiation that had likely been drawn out. The 18th is excellent for getting a agreement in writing and finalizing a deal that has been in the works.

AQUARIUS – The Waterbearer

Another eclipse on the 11th can bring sudden surprises in relationships. An event in the life of your partner has a big affect on you, for better or worse. A business partner could spur you to move towards your professional goals. Professional gains and lucrative incentives are possible on the 19th. Inspiration and creativity guide you towards the right objectives. A matter of contention or indecision regarding a partnership could begin to see resolution around the 8th. Romantic energy is strong at this time and reconnecting will bring you very close to someone you care for. Travel is favored, though the second half of the month is preferable, after the 19th Mercury resumes direct motion and there will be fewer delays and entanglements. A spiritual pilgrimage could be a good choice, you awaken to your inner most soul self on the 25th. This rare alignment offers a glimpse into your heart of hearts. You can come into intuitive awareness of a profound spiritual peace. Pressure subsides mid month with Mars leaving your sign for a few weeks.

PISCES – The Fishes

Romance remains sweet for the first week of the month, from the 7th a more financial emphasis comes into play. Your most intimate relationships are highlighted on the 7th, and a love relationship or business deal regarding shared income or an investment is auspiciously indicated. Work, health and productivity are still the main topic, and events during the eclipse on the 11th will bring a new position or project your way. A tuning point on the 8th adds a new dimension to your domestic life, you may be starting a work from home business or moving/renovation plans are starting to come together. After the 19th there is much more clarity when Mercury resumes direct motion. A promotion or assignment finally gets the green light you have been waiting for. Mid month will see Mars retrograde into Capricorn, and this could represent a period (over the next month) of reconnecting with old friends and alliances. There could be some fun surprises, maybe a reunion is in store. Mars direct on the 28th will restore the energy level, and also impacts your income. (Mars rules your money and earnings sector, so the retrograde period has likely put your finances in limbo.) Your personal mojo is strong during the Pisces Full Moon on the 26th, making this a fantastic time to mix and mingle. A commitment you make to your beloved contains enduring overtones that easily last the test of time.

JULY FORECAST

THE HANDS OF FATE…

Eclipse season unfolds with no shortage of dramatic events and surprising changes or revelations. Three upcoming eclipses (Cancer July 12th, Aquarius July 27th and Leo August 11th) shake up the foundations and speed up the trajectories of storylines initiated last August as well as over the first 6 weeks of 2018. The atmosphere is highly dynamic and ripe for immense breakthroughs, and if there was ever a month to make sure you get enough rest and drink enough water – this is certainly the one.

The predominant energy stimulated throughout July is that residing on the Fixed Cross, and those with planets or angles in the early degrees of the Fixed signs in particular (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) are the most directly effected by this. There can be a great deal of tension and urgency within this configuration, and security issues are particularly a priority throughout this volatile period. Underscoring this fortuitously is the Sun – Jupiter – Neptune Grand Water Trine, which offers emotional assurance and confidence to deal with whatever comes up. This aspect is felt most strongly over the first two weeks and is very much enhanced when Jupiter resumes direct motion from 13’ 21” Scorpio on the 10th.

Having been retrograde since early March, much of the progress that has been made over the past few months likely took place invisibly, since this process unfolded deep beneath the surface, requiring the integration of resilience through some manner of psychological inquiry and transformation. To the extent you have successfully managed to confront your innermost desires and even fears, as well as embraced your personal power, Jupiter direct will provide a sense of assurance and confidence to make huge strides over the upcoming months.

Reclamation of your individual inner strength has been possible during this period, and examining how far you have come since last December will provide insight into how extensive the catharsis has been for you. Jupiter – Scorpio requires the emancipation of the ego, in order to dig down into your darkest truths and honor them, the scarier the better. (Examining the placement of Pluto in your chart can also be useful here.) Where you may have not managed to confront these aspects of yourself yet, they will likely come flooding to the surface, seeking quick and rapid release when Jupiter goes direct. In any case, the 10th is highly potent for conducting healing and esoteric magic.

Saturn and Uranus are also moving into a harmonious alignment, which will be strongest from mid August through mid September. Uranus is pushing innovative approaches within the material realm, how people earn and use resources are the basic themes. Developments such as the sharing economy would be one example of a greater social transformation that reflects this energy. (Cryptocurrency assets, as I have mentioned previously, are another such example, but in such a volatile state of transitioning into main stream acceptance, they remain a less reliable indicator – so far – of the potentials expressed by Uranus in Taurus. Potent auspices at work this month may weigh in with some incredibly interesting developments.) Saturn from Capricorn seeks to stabilize these changes, and integrate long range strategies that enable new approaches.

Venus from Virgo (beginning on the 9th) offers a helping hand, particularly from the 11th – 14th when productive activities reinforce potentials for success in the material realm. Clean living, exercise and anything that enhances effectiveness pays off big time this week. Handling details and organizational matters associated with any sort of enterprise is especially favored now.

Eclipses will of course provide the major punctuation marks – and Nodal activations stimulate trajectories forward (North Node – Mercury July 4th, Sun July 29th) while also serving reminders of what is over, done and dusted (Mars to South Node July 21). There is a work in progress feeling to these configurations, however, with both Mercury (July 26 – August 19th) and Mars (through August 27th) in retrograde, indicating there are still a few kinks needing to get ironed out before taking that step forward. Nonetheless, there will be some major developments in July, be ready for anything and take any and all opportunities in stride. It may take a little longer to get all the puzzle pieces into place, but these are once in a lifetime opportunities!

HAPPY ECLIPSE SEASON!!!

STARSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

Mercury slows and then retrogrades in your area of pleasure, self expression and romance. You could start having second thoughts about a whirlwind love affair or someone long forgotten lands back in your orbit. A mild eclipse in Cancer on the 13th signals a change of guard is coming. In about six more months, you are going to find yourself far more involved with your family and personal life, and pulling back from public life and professional objectives. Meanwhile, a work project or new position is going incredibly well, leading to advancement now (the 22nd and 27th are starred for good news) or at the beginning of next year. As Mars retrogrades, you connect with old associates, perhaps rekindling old dreams that never came to fruition. A financial turnaround from the 10th lifts your spirits.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Home and professional matters come to a head this month as aspects of both seem to completely unravel. Mars retrograde in the arena of public profile and profession coupled with Mercury retrograde in the arena of private life and home whip up a perfect storm of trouble, and could easily turn your world on its ear. Love comes to save the day in the meanwhile as a benevolent Venus transit in your house of True Romance couples with Jupiters’ direct motion in the arena of partnerships, smoothing the waters and clearing any obstacles to satisfy your hearts’ deepest desires. The 14th is a great day to commit and highly pleasurable vibrations on the 22nd will remind you why you did. A Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on the 27th is the last nail in the coffin on a professional path that is done and dusted. If you’ve been waiting for a signal to jump ship, the time is ripe.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

Retrograde Mars can bring old friends back into the fold, an encounter or reunion on the 21st could turn out to be a real blast from the past! As Mercury enters shadow (and retrogrades from the 26th) this quality is enhanced, with a lot of lost connections resurfacing and ideas you may have scratched being reconsidered. Home could be the scene of some really romantic encounters. Love is emphasized on the 14th, 22nd and 27th. These are also lovely times in which to beautify your environment. Earth tones can bring a harmonious Feng Shui and break up stagnant energy fields in the home. You get a nice dose of motivation for creative self expression or writing from the 23rd, and an idea you get on the 28th can plant the seeds for an amazing project you’ll likely work on for months. A new financial plan you put into place during the eclipse on the 13th could yield dividends in about 6 months. Plan carefully and trust your intuition.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

A partial eclipse in your sign on the 13th signals changes are coming up on the road ahead. Although you won’t see the North Node shift into your sign until early November, your life is going to undergo some very significant transformation over the coming years, and you begin to get clues of that now. For now the evolutionary drive is towards establishing your personal values and earnings. Fantastic opportunities are revealed on the 4th and 29th that point you in the right direction. Meanwhile, events on the 21st and 27th suggest a shortfall in your shared and outside income sector that will remind you precisely why you require self reliance. Mercury in shadow leading up to a retrograde period on the 26th also influences this area so this story is going to play out for a few months. By September, the issue is settled. Socially this is an exceptional period, and spending time with those you can share daily pleasures, creative and intellectual activities with is highly favored. The 11th, 22nd and 27th sparkle with excitement and these are the best dates to accept invitations or entertain.

LEO July 23 – August 22

It’s a very beguiling month although there is pleasure to be found if you really mine for it (the 11th is pretty sweet). Complex energies are in abundance, especially in relation to partnerships, where a situation seems to be sliding backwards and taking you with it! A Total Eclipse on the 27th resonates Februaries’ themes and again presents a period of sweeping change and decisions made in a heartbeat. This one has some real fire in it, Mars is conjunct the Moon and there will be drama! Uranus also squares from Taurus. Talk about keg fire, bring your marshmallows! Normally, events that transpire now would be irrevocable, but with Mars retrograde, it’s not unlikely that it doesn’t completely coalesce until the end of September, when Mars comes back to 4’ Aquarius. July 4th and 29th are moments in which very meaningful insights and self awareness are possible, and during which you can assert yourself effectively. Mercury prepares to retrograde in your sign so it may be a tricky phase this and next month to articulate or even fully comprehend your motivations. Venus in Virgo from the 10th turns up the luxe factor and you can indulge a little as extra earnings, perhaps from a creative venture, pad your pocketbook. Be discerning on the 24th, an enticement is not what it seems regardless of how appealing it seems in the moment!

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

Venus touches down in your sign on the 10th, bringing a celestial goody basket which will potentially mitigate the slow down at work. Jupiter direct at the same time generates a harmonious ambience for social activities, and enticing contacts on the 11th and 22nd are fantastic for attending get togethers and otherwise enjoying the company of your friends. Mercury also slows, and will occupy your area of secrecy and endings through the first week of September. Something you want to let go of you can’t quite shake off as quickly as you’d like, and you do well to mine for buried treasure in your subconscious by consulting a trusted psychic or even a therapist. The 4th and 29th are great for getting to the bottom of deeply rooted personal issues. Releasing these literally sets you free. Events on the 21st not so much, as a work or health issue resurfaces and demands your attention. A very intense eclipse on the 27th reinforces this, and there could be an ending here, if not during the last week of September.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Relational dynamics continue to go to and fro, and although you do continue to have breakthroughs with your groups, a misunderstanding could derail a project temporarily while Mercury retrogrades from the 26th. An exciting professional development around the 5th brings a turn in your fortune by the time Jupiter resumes direct motion on the 11th. Professionally you could be enjoying the limelight or accolades for a success. You’ll be happiest doing so from a remote location, or working behind the scenes on a top secret project. The 14th, 22nd and 27th are all beneficial for this, as well as just getting in some good rest if you require it. A vexing issue within a love relationship (and one you might be trying to shake off entirely) comes back out of the woodwork around the 21st. The eclipse on the 27th represents a period of incredible volatility, beginnings and endings transpire and life can change in a heartbeat under such auspices. With Mars retrograde, it would seem something remains unfinished before an important conclusion can be drawn at the end of September. Intensity crescendos up until the end of the month, when Mars crosses the Sun and Uranus.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

This can be a really rocky one, as full on retrograde Mars connects to the Lunar Eclipse on the 27th, in a tense aspect to unpredictable Uranus. Those dynamics at the end of May come back to roost, and it could be in this period you make an out of the blue change to your living situation, even if it means moving somewhere you lived before, maybe even back home for a while. You get another reminder of where you are feeling most “stuck” on the 21st. Use these feelings instructively to uncover what you need to release. The time will come to do so soon enough. Professionally you might feel yourself switching gears, and reconsidering your course, especially towards the end of the month. An enterprise isn’t quite ready to take off and needs another work through before it can be implemented. Friends are supportive and rally to your side, the 11th, 14th and 22nd are all good for planning activities and occasions. Jupiter direct in your sign on the 10th is a saving grace, and what ever should come or go in this period, you feel optimistic about the future and all it holds.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

Mercury slows it’s orbit in the area of great escapes, adventure and higher learning, suggesting travel plans could hit a hitch. Anticipate delays until the second half of next month. Mars is also moving backwards and in slow motion, amplifying the sense of going back in time. This will be especially evident on the 21st, as you get reminders you need to unstick yourself from a situation. Easier said than done… Venus in Virgo from the 10th elevates your public profile and gets you in front of the people who can help you succeed in your chosen profession. The 11th, 14th, 22nd and 27th are all exceptional for career development and making a good impression. These opportunities open doors and pave the way for enduring success when the Sun and Mercury pass through part of the zodiac in September. The Aquarius eclipse on the 27th can intensify your desire to break free from a certain limiting situation, and the exact outlet you are seeking could present itself on the 29th. Be ready to jump.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

A partial eclipse in Cancer on the 13th could signal big changes in your relationship status over the coming 6 months or even year. Pluto opposes the Lunation, so events have fated and intense overtones. Jupiter and Neptune meanwhile provide a more amiable ambience, enhancing good feelings and romance mutually. Venus in Virgo from the 10th adds a very sweet and loving atmosphere. The 11th, 14th, 22nd and 27th all provide positive opportunities to develop your bond with someone, especially if you are able to travel or are working on a publishing or media project together. Some financial challenges could be present over the 21st or 27th, as a source of income could be coming to an end. This will swiftly be replaced by fantastic avenues of growth through shared resources or an investment coming your way. The details emerge on the 4th and 29th. Mercury retrograde in this area from the 26th could curtail negotiations for a few weeks, an issue with a contract or agreement will have to be scrutinized.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

This will be a very dynamic and transformational period for you. The angles of your chart are alighted and an intense eclipse in your sign on the 27th signals life altering changes are in store. Since you can’t really anticipate or maneuver the outcome in this period, it’s best to go with the current of the tide of events. For now trust that the universe is moving you towards an important evolutionary goal post. Signals and events on the 4th, 21st and 29th have fateful undertones and remind you, even if the land scape seems chaotic, that you are headed in the right direction. With Mars still retrograde in your sign, things may not all fall into place until late September, when the action planet, in direct motion, again conjuncts the degree of the eclipse and matters resurface and progress can be made. Mercury will retrograde in the arena of partnerships from the 26th, eliciting a period of withdrawal or reappraisal of your important one on one alliances. This impacts both professional and romantic relationships, and people from the past can have a tendency to reappear during these phases, usually to settle unfinished business.

PISCES February 19 – March 20

A partial eclipse in Cancer on the 13th can stimulate developments and rapid changes in your love life. Mars retrograde suggests there is a fleeting quality to romance now. Very romantic currents are heading your way, especially on the 11th, 14th, 22nd and 27th. Could be a mixed fortune? Better prospects or the opportunity to more fully develop a relationship with someone you meet now will emerge a bit further down the road, but there’s no reason to hold back or delay where feelings are mutual and bring positive mojo into your life. A job or assignment you had thought you were going to get could be put on hold as Mercury slows for retrograde on the 26th. The vibe where you work could be a bit downbeat, making this a good month for travel or more recreational activities if it’s possible. There could be a great deal going on in your personal life in particular around mid month that requires quick thinking and your undivided attention. What occurs is dramatic and dynamic, and potentially signals an ending. With Mars as well Mercury out of phase there could be some delays. A work matter is beautifully starred on the 29th, a lucky break or compelling new team member gets your crew back into action.

Stargazer Weekly Forecast 3/11 – 3/17

The ambience intensifies this week as Mars enters Capricorn and Sun moves into Aries (Happy Equinox!) Cardinal energy stirs up incentive and urges striking out towards new frontiers. These two very Yang energies confront one another at the end of the week, tapping into an already overly sensitized 2nd Quarter Moon in Cancer. The results of undertakings or initiatives put into motion late July of last year come into view. It might be time to modify the action plan if things aren’t going the way you would have sought for them to. (You have from now until the Sun – Mars opposition, which takes place in the middle of the Mars retrograde period this year on July 27th, to make modifications.)

Mercury also does it’s about face this week from 16’ Aries. Through April 15th there is a chance to step back, review and recalibrate perspective in what has been so far a very fast paced year. As mentioned in the monthly horoscopes, this particular retrograde has a heavy Saturn flavor to it, and much of what is getting worked out in this period is connected to confronting an obstacle or impediment which only through it’s resolution can progress be made. There can be frustrating moments of limitation attached to this process, but these are really meant to stimulate awareness of where and what needs working on. The end of April holds many opportunities in store if you can tackle the issues on hand.

The end of the week is pretty prickly as Venus squares Pluto, forcing a relationship (for the sake of love or money) to transform or else. (!!!) This can be a stormy influence to contend with and can bring up patterns of jealousy or possessiveness in a relationship that is triggering feelings of insecurity rather than love. It’s time to confront some inner demons and if you can maintain some objectivity, there is a potential for discovery, metamorphosis and healing to occur. This is also the appropriate time to evaluate progress in the objectives established during the first week of January, as these are reaching critical mass now.

The 2nd Quarter Moon that follows on Saturday is no peach either: from Cancer lady Luna opposes intense and obstinate forces via Mars + Saturn in Capricorn while squaring the Sun in Aries. This one looks really pivotal, though with Mercury out of sorts it’s not going to be easy to draw a conclusion about anything too critical. Sit with yourself and relinquish stagnant energies that have been repressed within. Any aggravation you might experience at this juncture is an indication that these urgently seek release.

2wands

Sun enters Aries on the 20th at 12:15p EST, signaling the beginning of the new astrological calendar and opening the energetic field to fresh influences and perspectives. For the next 10 days, the Sun transits the first Decan of Aries, stimulating a double Mars influence connected to the Tarot symbolism of 2 of Wands. Ziegler* offers the indication: “Pay attention to centering. If you’re in contact with your center, you are certain to master the situation. Trust your energy. Don’t go for any false compromises!… Now visualize the situation at hand. See yourself dealing with it while remaining centered.”

STARSCOPES:

april2-copy ARIES March 20 – April 19
You come back into your own this week as Sun joins up Mercury and Venus in your sign. Less easy to deal with is that willy-nilly Mercury retrograde rascal stirring up mischief in your sign. There may be more than one occasion this week you’ll likely want to tell people what is what and effectively put them in their place. Choose to split the difference instead. Though it’s not your style, it takes you further in the long run and with Mars starting a long transit of your arena of life direction, you need to be in this for the duration – pacing yourself is crucial for success.

may2-copy TAURUS April 20 – May 20
You are likely preoccupied with very subjective matters and feeling some really intense peaks of intuition. Tuesday is likely one such moment for you, tapping you into the essence of your inner drives and desires. Friday would be a no-no for first dates or really meaningful exchanges. There is a lot of raw emotion out there you might prefer to steer clear of. Don’t avoid a conflict if it arises, just be aware that your faculties are compromised and trying to make a sensible case for your perspective is just not likely to come off as clearly as you might want.

june2-copy GEMINI May 21 – June 20
While Mercury retrograde season is never easy on you Gem, this one does have the potential to bring back forgotten and long lost friends into your midst. Someone with too many strings attached shows their hand next Friday, and it could be take it or leave it. There is likely to be sexual and financial intensity arising over the coming weeks, so you might want to get your ducks in a row or have a back up plan ready, especially if you have outstanding debts or obligations of an intimate nature. Next weekend reveals what’s in store.

july2-copy CANCER June 21 – July 22
Your star is rising, but you also seem to reconsidering the trajectory it’s traveling, and perhaps need to realign with some core values before you make a substantive move forward. A lot of pressure is coming in from your partnership sector and especially next weekend you are seeing how influential one or a few certain people have become and how that could be affecting your inner compass. While this partnership holds the potential to transform your life, you have to hold the reigns, if only periodically and steer your chariot.

sep2-copy LEO July 23 – August 22
Sun in Aries gives you all the mojo, though Mercury retrograde will have the effect of making you ask where and what you want to steer all that energy. Work matters remain a concern and will stand to modify your arrangements considerably over the coming weeks if not months. This is a good time to advance productivity, though you want to take a slow and steady effort if you are going to maximize your potential in the long run. Shifting dynamics at the end of the week reveal changes you seek to make.

oct2-copy VIRGO August 23 – September 22
With some of the more personal/relation dynamics being settled for you, Virgo begins a season of catharsis and renewal. Don’t get too bemused if things feel a bit sideways and your normally reserved self starts connecting with a more elemental – sensational – emotional aspects of your psyche. You may have not claimed your full value somewhere, or with someone, and this is a period of recalibrating your estimation of your self worth in order to establish the trust you need to proceed. Financial and intimate relationships factor.

oct2-copy LIBRA September 23 – October 23
The relational space just keeps heating up and matched Libras have a lot going for them these weeks ahead with positive vibes to connect and cultivate bonds with a significant someone who really seems to get you. Love juju gets a bit intense towards the end of the week, and especially in a new relationship, try to reserve judgement if someone doesn’t come through for you in precisely the way you would have expected. Insecurities can arise, likely connected to your childhood. The current influences enable you to observe these and extract them as required.

nov2-copy SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
It’s a rather gestational period for you Scorpio and while signals that you are in a period of transformation are abundant, you likely don’t realize the how or why of it all just yet. You may be reversing even recent decisions, especially where the establishment of daily routines haven’t really kicked in yet. Better choices can be made after you review how well aligned your goals are with what you are doing to make them real. Good intentions are well enough, but it’s time to address what you are doing on a habitual level and start to engage more productive strategies.

dec2-copy SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21
Mars leaves your sign this weekend, moving into Capricorn where you will ground and attempt to materialize your recently determined upon inspirations. Sun in Aries adds to the momentum building in the area of your chart linked to pleasure and creativity, although Mercury retrograde could cause a bit of a short circuit over the coming weeks while you figure out how to get it all to come together. Inspiration could peak on Tuesday. Financial matters that require fortitude to get through will be revealed at the end of the week into Saturday.

jan2-copy CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
With Mars in your sign from Saturday you are super activated to get going on the big goals you set for yourself earlier this year. Simultaneously there is a rooting in influence, and while your foundations might seem shaky at best (courtesy of Mercury retrograde) you are coming to terms with what you desire in your ideal living arrangements and considering if those at close distance are serving those needs or providing a distraction. A trigger point next Friday sends signals as to where there is significant room for improvement.

feb2-copy AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Daily life is set to become even more exciting this week, though you might be taking a walk down memory lane and reconnecting with familiar but forgotten friends as the Mercury retrograde cycle unspools over the coming weeks. Mars in Capricorn lends some agitation to your inner space, suggesting it’s time for a mental/spiritual health check in. Expect intuition to be on high, though you won’t know where or precisely how these perceptions are reaching you (dreams, de ja vous and ESP experiences are part and parcel). These signal you to accept and release the past.

march2-copy PISCES February 19 – March 20
Energy continues to percolate in your arena of self worth and values, making this a fortuitous time to appraise your personal assets both substantive and intangible. The upcoming Mercury retrograde phase triggers some reassessment of these matters and contributes to a perceptible delay in gratification. Defining your goals and the networks in which you participate and how well these augment your true aspirations seems to be a critical part of this process. Socially this is a vibrant period, with some rather intense people entering your orbit. At least one or two of these people can show you the way through an otherwise tricky obstacle course regarding personal finance and how to make and keep your money.

STARGAZER MARCH HOROSCOPES

March is a month full of moxie and mojo. Mercury and Venus sashay into Aries side by side followed by Spring Equinox (Sun in Aries, the astrological New Year) two weeks later. Coupled with Mars, currently completing it’s transit of Sagittarius, the atmosphere is fiery and impulsive, energetic and reinvigorating. The upcoming Mercury retrograde slows the pace a bit from March 22 – April 15, while Mars from Capricorn beginning on the 17th, will add steadiness and persistence to the atmosphere. Jupiter, meanwhile will retrograde from the 8th, and there is a need to go within to review the potent emotional dimensions this transit has revealed. Second chances are possible from July, as the next few months provide an opportunity to determine how you can best utilize depth and power to manifest a positive outcome through regeneration and merger of your energies with another.

VENUS IN ARIES
On it’s own, Venus in aggro Aries is not the most comfortable placement for one of the most delicate of planetary energies. It does serve to purge out any remaining unresolved issues from the past. From there new beginnings can occur, a Spring awakening of sorts as Venus is rebirthed anew. Venus will have tensions this month with both Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, so some growing pains may arise in regard to romantic or financial matters. Here the lesson is not to take on the burdens of others too heavily while finding a way to live up to the commitments that have been made previously. Venus/Aries requires independence and has no desire to be yoked to restriction or stultifying commitment. These cycles tie back to the conjunctions (read beginnings) made in late December (Venus/Saturn) and early January (Venus/Pluto) and provide the first hurdle of the current cycle to overcome in relation to anything set into motion around those times.

By the end of the month, Venus has had it and finds herself in the liberating embrace of Uranus, conjuncting one last time for the next 80+ years at the end of Aries. Sun, Mercury and Mars (next February) all still have one last trigger point with Uranus, even next months Aries New Moon is in very close conjunction. There is something notable about all of these, but with Venus it’s an extra special thing – Venus is about harmony and the coupling or pairing of opposites or complimentary types. Uranus seeks the most potential freedom possible in this union and generates a unique climate for establishing a connection that while volatile and even abrasive at times is nonetheless completely authentic, if not unstable and disruptive! Wherever your chart is contacted, expect a bit of insatiability or even a personal revolution!

MERCURY IN ARIES (RETROGRADE)

Mercury spends a sort of extraordinary amount of time in Aries, nine weeks in total, and framed by a rather tense square pattern to Saturn throughout. This is triggered on March 11th, with the 2nd aspect occurring on April 5th and the final one on the 25th. (The 1st as well as final weeks in April reveal the most tension.) This makes for an atmosphere of having to overcome some sort of obstacle through skills or communication. It’s a possibility reaching some kind of agreement here is an issue and there is likely a great deal of tension around this matter.

Looking back to April of last year, Venus made a similar (longer range) aspect between retrograde Venus (Pisces) and Saturn in Sagittarius. Consider your chart house degrees on this one, because it’s not unlikely that the same house might be affected. Although the themes around the issue have managed to evolve via sign, only about 10 degrees of sky space differentiate these transits and it’s not completely unlikely that themes from last Spring are resonating now. There is still a big issue that needs working out, and Aries is a little more adept at getting to the bottom of a problem than Pisces, who will just kind of absorb all that energy and emotion and let negativity sort of fester till it decides to dissipate on it’s own.

Aries and Capricorn are both Cardinal signs, and while they will butt heads (Ram VS Goat mashup style) they are both action oriented and will take initiative to find a solution. Here, oddly enough, the tension created by the square is precisely what will urge on the disentangling of a persistent and obstinate issue. Take this one to the mat, enough is enough already! Pessimism is also likely throughout this phase, and getting disheartened with conditions is an emotion best used to instigate another outcome by taking action.

As Mercury stations and slows down to retrograde on the 22nd at 16’ Aries, it spends the last two weeks of the month harmonized to the Nodal Axis, so that the integration of the past and future is possible. It may take until the end of April to see why, who and how, when the final link up occurs, there is a willingness and understanding that enables forward motion towards the objectives of the North Node (future orientation) that manifests in July, during the conjunction and eclipses that occur that month.

3 Pentacles

MARS IN CAPRICORN

Mars enters Capricorn on the 17th, where it will join Saturn and Pluto, intensifying goals and increasing the capacity to take on a large scale or long range undertaking. For three months this year, (due to the upcoming Mars retrograde) Mars resides here, and while that which begins now will take until September to really manifest, there is perseverance to make something happen, regardless of how much work is required. Plan for the long haul for whatever you choose to embark on.

Next month and into May, Mars makes hard aspects to Saturn, Pluto and Uranus, all of which stimulate incredible tenacity and drive. Jupiter and Neptune will also harmonize, making this a very special Mars – Capricorn transit. It’s time to dig in and really get to work on something, there is the potential to achieve something really incredible this year and Mars is getting a lot of assistance right now to make tangible a long range effort. Mars – Saturn, not an easy aspect by far, only occurs once during this 29 year period, and holds a solution if you are willing to make the effort. Grit and determination make this possible.

MARCH STARSCOPES:

april2-copy ARIES March 20 – April 19
A work project comes complete, making room for more subjective and personal concerns. Mid month can see you a bit emo, you may still be getting over old associations and feeling reflective. You enter a very busy phase this month with Mercury moving through your sign for an extended period (retrograde from the 23rd – April 15th). Venus also comes to play, softening your gruff demeanor and letting your love light shine. Especially with a Mercury retro here there is a fast and almost out of control quality and you will likely quickly rethink any relationship you start now, maybe better to wait till the second half of next month to commit? Mars enters the career sector mid month and you are all fired up, getting ready to ascend the heights of a huge ambition. Remember the tale of the tortoise and hare: slow and steady wins the race. This could take until September to manifest, but you will get there with perseverance.

may2-copy TAURUS April 20 – May 20
A love relationship can really get its’ wings this month and a lot will be spelled out clearly during the Full Moon on the 2nd. Jupiter retrograde in your partnerships house could see a decline of some of the recent intensity between you and you know who. Take some time to process how far you have come and where you want to go next. Brilliant opportunities unfold in the second half of the year. A great deal is going on behind the scenes, amplified by a Mercury Moon Walk that will place the messenger planet in your house of secrets and sorrows for close to 10 weeks beginning on the 7th. You seem to have a lot of issues from the past to work out, something or someone just hasn’t let go, although in all fairness, that person might be you. Mars in Capricorn from the 18th can see you saying Bon Voyage, maybe a journey to a distant land is in order. Definitely use any excursion made to make peace with the past, the 24th is particularly vexing though, maybe skip it if you can.

june2-copy GEMINI May 21 – June 20
Career developments continue to unfold, as the New Moon on the 17 triggers opportunities and exciting insights into were to go and what you would like to de next. It might take until mid November to reach these goals, but if you begin working towards a life path you establish now you will see these materialize eventually. A passion phase with your partner continues through mid month, then intensifies even further from the 18th. A period of deep transformation begins that will last through mid September. You have much to learn about commitment and trust in this phase. It could be a very erotic period if you can let someone in. Friends and companions bring joy and reverie, making this a very fun and social season for you. You can catch up with people from the past after the 23rd, or you might reminisce about old times. The 28th is amazing for a party or special occasion and the Full Moon on the 31st can see you getting closer to someone you have special feelings for.

july2-copy CANCER June 21 – July 22
Professional vibes continue to prevail with some very exciting news in your career sector over the next two months. A venture or promotion will be subjected to the backwards – forward of the Mercury retrograde coming up on the 23rd, but this could prove to be a blessing in disguise as you get to fine tune a project in conjunction with the Sun. You’ll probably get your best work done in the first half of the month, as you have vigor to work and get it done. From the 18th Mars comes into opposition and this can be a testing period for your relationships, though equally you will find passion is stimulated as well. If someone new comes on the scene now, they will probably play a significant role in life for some time to come, though this won’t be clear why until after the Mars retrograde cycle comes to an end. Home is where the heart is during the Full Moon on the 31st. Nurture yourself by spending time with the ones you love.

aug2-copy LEO July 23 – August 22
This is a great month to get on the road, especially with your partner or spouse. Getting out to lecture, teach or study are also highlighted and offer pleasurable encounters. The 28th is especially exciting, something unexpected takes you away from your routine. From the 18th a more work and productivity oriented energy takes over. A new assignment or promotion could be in the pipeline, and what you are doing now is going to pay off in a huge career shift at the end of the year. Put your best foot forward. The financial axis is lit up by the Full Moon (on the 2nd) and New Moon (on the 17th). The 2nd is tricky, there are deceptive and elusive forces at play and it will be hard to nail down the distinction of what’s yours and what’s their’s or where the money is coming in or going from. Better to wait for the mist to clear before you come to a major decision or agreement. The 17th is better and you could be seeing revenue from a home sale or rental income. You might even inherit a property, wait and see!

sep2-copy VIRGO August 23 – September 22
A relationship could get serious this month and you might be ready to make a commitment to someone. The 1st, 2nd, 4th and especially the New Moon on the 17th are ideal for such declarations, and even the most lovelorn among you are likely to stumble upon really intriguing opportunities to connect and grow something beautiful. From the 18th Capricorn – Mars intensifies your passion and libido energy, so you’ll do well to have found a playmate by this point. If not, your likely to be on the prowl, though events or a misunderstanding on the 23rd could provide a bit of a challenge, especially within a new relationship. If you hit a snag, consider where your own need to be in control of a situation might be pushing someone away. Clarify your goals, personal or otherwise during the Full Moon in your sign on the 2nd, the only one this year and your best time to establish a course for the future.

oct2-copy LIBRA September 23 – October 23
Health and the benefits it has on your productivity are highlighted this month, making this an auspicious time for self care and engaging new regiments or diet. The New Moon on the 17th is ideal for putting these into practice, though there is no hold off, as by this point in the month your attention will likely be diverted to partnerships. Things here get tricky, as Mercury retrograde from the 23rd will slow the pace considerably and make negotiations or getting any kind of commitment difficult through next month. Venus here eases the way, and you’ll be willing to turn the other cheek if you have to, biding your time. An exciting breakthrough on the 28th could bring an unexpected alliance into the mix. With Mercury retrograde there is always the potential for someone from the past to reenter the picture unexpectedly. The Full Moon in your sign on the 31st will help you keep your personal priorities in order. Watch finances over the next four months with Jupiter retrograde from the 9th. There could be a lack of resources. Mars in Capricorn puts a lot of emphasis on your home life, and this could feature a partner, it’s possible you move in together (or will over the coming months) and this activates a lot of energy within the residence.

nov2-copy SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
A love relationship remains in frame, but there will also be a great deal of energy directed towards your work and finances this month. The 11th and 28th stand out for the most exciting developments, especially where you have been seeking more freedom or even self employment. Mercury slows here meanwhile, and a promotion or new title could prove to be out of reach for a while longer, after the middle of next month the atmosphere is more advantageous for such changes. Socially this can be a dynamic and exciting period, especially after the 18th. The New Moon on the 17th can bring a deeply healing romantic love relationship into your life, or in the case of an existing one, to the next level. Enthusiasm may wane while Jupiter retrogrades in your sign from the 9th, you’ll be asked to make the most of how far you’ve come since last October and reflect on where to go next.

dec2-copy SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21
Residential developments continue, as a New Moon in Pisces on the 17th signals a significant change to your home life, which possibly began precipitating as early as January. You continue to ride lightning with Mars in your sign. The 11th is spectacular for your personal enterprises and creative output. Electrifying excitement is all around you. A very enticing development in your love life is possible on the 28th. From the 6th, Mercury and Venus tag team in Aries, generating a favorable ambience for self expression and passionate love relationships. The 20th is beautiful for expressing your heartfelt feelings or a creative project. You may take in an art exhibit or performance that germinates inspiration for something you want to work on. Mercury back tracks from the 23rd and you could have second thoughts, or if you recently began dating someone could feel them pull back or have less time available. Mars in Capricorn on the 18th indicates you’ll be driven and preoccupied over the next month and a half to secure your earnings, and working hard to do so.

jan2-copy CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
Your most personal life continues to develop, and the home life is the setting for many pleasurable experiences this month. The 20th and 28th are particularly auspicious for entertaining or making improvements in your domestic environment. Adding a decorative element in a bright red shade activates positive Feng Shui and breaks up stagnant energy fields. A Full Moon at the end of the month, coupled with Mars in your sign from the 18th, (though mid May, then again in late August/early September,) urges you back into the spotlight, and you could especially be capitalizing on a venture you began last Fall. Saturn and Mars from your own sign form a very obstinate and challenging angle to this Full Moon, you have to maintain perspective to ensure your success. If you don’t get exactly what you want or expected acting like a poor sport is not going to benefit you. Clearly, there will be value in examining your feelings and expectations around this time. It seems there could be a disappointment of some description, you do well to use the strength of your conviction to turn a situation around.

feb2-copy AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Daily life and your social relationships are very exciting right now and you will be enjoying the company of your friends and acquaintances. Mercury slows, turning retrograde on the 22nd, and there will be some reassessment at this point where some personal goals and potentially relationships, are concerned. In slowing the pace, the cycle will give you a chance to catch up on projects or assignments that have been delegated to the back burner because of an otherwise busy schedule. Watch out for rash financial decisions around the 17th. The 11th and 28th are very positive for making stimulating connections and articulating your ideals and objectives. The New Moon can stimulate a new opportunity to earn income, but Mars in tense aspect adds too much urgency. Mars in Capricorn from the 18th signals a turn inward and that a reflexive phase during which you transform and make endings is likely now.

march2-copy PISCES February 19 – March 20
Relational triggers get set off with lunations occurring on your me – you axis, and you may have some very romantic experiences and even make a lasting commitment over the early days of the month. Exciting prospects with career and finances continue to crop up all month, stunning alinements on the 11th and 28th are particularly potent, and could offer unexpected, but exciting developments. The more you experiment here, the further you can go now, especially where you have sought for more financial autonomy and freedom. Mercury pulls into a retrograde phase from the 23rd, and you may see some delays, especially if you have been waiting for a check or to hear about a job or promotion. Nonetheless an enterprise or early negotiations you begin on the 20th has an assured staying quality to it. You could begin tinkering with a creative project that culminates down the road a bit. The New Moon on the 17th falls in your sign and is quite powerful. Jupiter, Pluto and Chiron are all supportive here, lending a progressive and transformative vibe. Chiron will be very close to the Sun, and a sensitive matter could rise to the surface quickly. You can use this energy to get to the bottom of a self esteem issue. As a whole, this will be a very powerful period. Some quiet reflection and taking time to appreciate how far you have come is a great manifestation of this energy.

BOOK PREVIEW AVAILABLE HERE 

MARS IN SCORPIO – 5 OF CUPS

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

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

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

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

Namaste people.

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

WEEKLY STARSCOPES:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

STARGAZER FORECAST DECEMBER 2017

SATURN IN CAPRICORN – THE SANDS OF TIME

PREVIEW BOOK HERE

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

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

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

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

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

quote-father-time-is-not-always-a-hard-parent-and-though-he-tarries-for-none-of-his-children-often-charles-dickens-291163

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

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

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

Have a great month and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

DECEMBER STARSCOPES:

april2-copy   ARIES: March 20 – April 19

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

may2-copy  TAURUS: April 20 – May 20

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

june2-copy  GEMINI: May 21 – June 20

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

july2-copy  CANCER: June 21 – July 22

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

aug2-copy  LEO: July 23 – August 22

Mercury retrograde impacts your creative realm, a project may require a redux or it may be time to reconsider arrangements affecting your children or their education. Favorable vibes preside side by side, as Venus and Sun cruise your arena of fun and recreation, you may just be enjoying a trip in the slow lane. Travel is possible between the 16th and 20th. Adventure may beacon unexpectedly around this time. A very prophetic or spiritual retreat could factor for you around the 2nd. Dreams and intuition reveal remarkable realms of creative inspiration. Mars in Scorpio can signal domestic conflict, a great deal of activity is taking place around the abode. You may be at odds with the family around the 25th. Tension or conflict may arise that seems to go against your wishes.

sep2-copy  VIRGO: August 23 – September 22

You gain a professional advantage over the Full Moon on the 3rd, and the hard work and dedication of the last few months can pay of in a lucrative way for you through promotion or recognition. Home continues to be a matter of significance, with some good developments, especially around the 16th and 20th. A New Moon on the 18th can signal a move. Unexpected expenses could rock the boat on the 1st. Have a little extra in tow to mitigate a shortfall. The 2nd is magically romantic. A weekend getaway with your spouse or partner will be positively wonderful. Love is definitely in the air. A big shift around the 20th sees a more serious mood prevail in your love life, as Saturn from Capricorn cements a relationship. Maturity will become paramount, and you may be preparing to start a family or take on an important creative role, getting more serious about your output than you have ever been before.

oct2-copy  LIBRA: September 23 – October 23

The year winds down on a note of pleasure and you can share the enjoyment of your many accomplishments with friends and associates, perhaps using the Mercury retrograde period (Dec 3 – 23) for catching up with old friends. Beautiful and exciting moments with your spouse or partner on the 16th and 20th make you merry! A very beneficial financial influence through a creative professional outlet on the 2nd opens the road to a very lucrative income through a project connected with inspiration and artistry. This elusive goal has likely been on your radar for years, but seemed to slip through your fingers several times. Watching it come to culmination now will be highly satisfying. The dedication to success will continue to be evident from the 10th through January, as you may be working harder than ever before to make the most of this opportunity. Contracts get sidelined during Mercury retro, so keep the lines of conversation open reserving judgement and decision making until after the first week of next month!

nov2-copy  SCORPIO: October 24 – November 21

Finances continue to be a hot topic, though things go sideways from the 3rd as Mercury retrograde impacts your wealth and resources sector. From the New Moon on the 18th, and over the following days it is all systems go. A new lease on life, and money can particularly be expected as restrictive Saturn moves out of this area on the 21st, freeing you to pursue your economic goals with renewed faith in a better outcome for the future. Mars in your sign from the 10th bestows determination and conviction for your activities and enterprises, infusing you with energy. This makes for a very good new year, with highly exciting developments forthcoming in January. You are visible and powerful as the year comes to closure. Love and pleasure are also highlighted, some of the sweetest vibes you’ve had in years come flowing in during the early days of this and next month. Enjoy the wave.

dec2-copy  SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 22 – Dec. 21

While it’s been an incredible year, you’ll notice a significant shift in the ambience around the 20th, when Saturn departs your sign and you breath that deep sigh of relief. You have survived one of the toughest cycles of your 29 year climb. Saturn revealed deficiencies in order to make you stronger, and what you have learned about yourself will now allow you to build security and a stable base for yourself over the next 2 years. This is a great month for you and through your relationships, The Full Moon on the 3rd and Venus in your sign through the 26th can augment brilliant culminations including a wedding or proposal. A wonderful new sense of self awareness on the 18th, during the New Moon in your sign, caps off the year for you, and it looks as though creative and romantic feelings at this time play a huge role in your sense of satisfaction and achievement.

jan2-copy  CAPRICORN: December 22 – January 19

A project comes to conclusion this month around the 3rd. Energy shifts from the hardworking period of these last several months to your private life and friendships. Attend the holiday parties, but save time for loved ones and family. You can also combine your interests: the 16th and 20th are ideal for entertaining at home. The New Moon on the 18th signals changes and illuminates the new order. From the 20th, Saturn comes to reside in your sign and it will be time to take on a mantle of authority and responsibility unlike anything you have ever know. For December, enjoy yourself and live a little. Tune into new directives on the 21st and 25th and allow the knowledge of how far you have come in the last year to guide you on your next adventure. Building in energy into the new year is very propitious energy for a major coup, prepare yourself for incredible things to come. Cheers!

feb2-copy  AQUARIUS: January 20 – February 18

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

march2-copy  PISCES: February 19 – March 20

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

WEEKLY STARSCOPES:

april2-copy  ARIES March 20 – April 19
You hit the recharge switch Tuesday morning as the Moon moves into your sign. This follows a very productive beginning to the week, you can make some critical decisions and get a lot done. Be wary that the details around this one can change between now and January. This is likely connected to an educational pursuit, and students may find they have to delay registration, or travel plans have to be modified. A very volatile atmosphere is present in relationships at the end of the week and depending on the circumstances a partnership could culminate very quickly or come to a swift end. There is a week left in this cycle and things will settle down with this person soon enough. Underscoring this is a peaceful serenity and the awareness that things will come out well in the end. The inner realms will be ripe with intuition and vision. Take it all in.

may2-copy   TAURUS April 20 – May 20
You are tackling tough financial issues from the onset, paying off a debt or establishing a new line of credit or a loan may be a priority, but this situation will go backwards again before it goes forward. Consider this a fact finding period and don’t make any commitments yet you can’t easily get out of. This tough cycle for money and shared resources comes to an end by January. There is a lot to look forward to over the weekend with sweet vibrations heading your way through a key partnership. Unpaired Bulls can make great connections through social events where they can meet people who share their interests and even dreams. Following a volatile day at work, this will be precisely what you need to regain your bearings.

june2-copy   GEMINI May 21 – June 20
You could realize a cherished professional dream this week as a promotion or position opens up that is perfectly suited to your natural talents and inclinations. Imagination and creativity play a big role or you could move into a glamorous industry such as film, fashion or music. Mercury is slowing it’s orbit, and you could feel a bit wonky as a result. A partnership is being considered and/or reconsidered between now and January. You may be trying to decide whether you want to end things or take it to the next level. Clues arise Tuesday, as you really begin to define what you want, but you are best to put off a final decision for a bit longer. A stunning event at the end of the week could turn things completely upside down.

july2-copy   CANCER June 21 – July 22
Work and professional matters take center stage at the beginning of the week and you may be trying to make a crucial decision about where you would like to apply your talents. An out of the blue opportunity could completely take you by surprise towards the end of the week, or you might find you have the courage to step way out of your comfort zone, strike out on your own and pursue a whole new avenue altogether. While there could be some back and fourth on this through the end of the year, you are getting crucial information that will apply to the final outcome. Beautiful creative and even romantic feelings are stirred this weekend. A pleasure trip with the one you love could be exactly what you need to clear your head and soothe your spirit.

aug2-copy   LEO July 23 – August 22
Socially you are entering a fun and dynamic period, though events Friday could take you by surprise, leaving you to wonder who your friends really are. An argument or disagreement has the ability to put a wedge between you and someone else. Ideology aside (and this is likely to underscore what occurs here,) ego expression is also at stake and can exacerbate the matter. There was never a better time to take the high road. The spiritual realm is stimulated over the weekend, sensitizing personal awareness and intuition. This is enhanced if you can be close to home or a place where you feel rooted and a grounding connection. What is revealed could astonish you, be prepared to go deep within.

sep2-copy   VIRGO August 23 – September 22
You’ve yet to reconcile at least one matter associated with your home, though what you have managed to accomplished over the last few years is very impressive. This next Mercury (and retrograde cycle) speaks implicitly to fixing something that you may have missed, or tackling a topic related to the residence that requires resolution, once and for all. You’ll go back and fourth or see delays. Your feelings are also likely to change between now and the end of the year. Early in the week (as well as the prior weekend) were revealing as to what and perhaps even how, but it’s too early to tell yet how this is meant to shake out. Surprises in store around financed and shared assets towards the end of the week could be a part of the equation. Incredible feelings emerge this weekend between you and a loved one, stimulating genuine rapport on a spiritual level. Tune into the good vibrations that surround you.

oct2-copy   LIBRA September 23 – October 23
You can only go so far in a relationship that has become disruptive or problematic with out having to draw the line somewhere. Friday is pretty contentious if you feel this way about your partner, and it won’t take much to get pushed over the edge where you have already been pushed too far. It’s equally likely a huge development arises, a sudden proposal or meeting could be just as surprising and bring necessary and revitalizing excitement to your love life. A positive outcome (or breakthrough) is by no means impossible, but there is a destabilizing quality to what ever occurs. Finance and profession are positively highlighted over the weekend, and where you have put in the work, something really marvelous can come to light. Your output, especially of the creative variety, could prove lucrative. A negotiation begins early in the week that will come to fruition early next year. Keep at this one, even though it takes time. You are about to culminate an issue you’ve attended to for quite some time.

nov2-copy   SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
Work and finances are priority this week, with a key matter in the early stages of resolution. A difficult ambience associated with self worth and earnings or cash flow is lifting and between now and early January you’ll make some critical choices that resolve this problem once and for all. Jupiter from your sign reaches out to mystical Neptune and you can connect to the very heart of your desires. If a lover has been evasive or hard to reach you find within you the capacity to understand why now and to correct the course though a compassionate outlook. This can also be a prolific time for creative types. The visionary realm is stimulated and you have the power to translate feelings into beautiful art, poetry and music. Friday is a bit more challenging as unexpected (maybe good, maybe not) events rattle your work life. A shift in position or new people coming into your workspace has a very unsettling effect on your psyche.

dec2-copy   SAGITTARIUS November 22 – December 21
A message or conversation early Tuesday has the dual effect of reminding you how far you have come but also how far you have yet to go. This will be a bit of a work in progress through the end of the year and into early ’18, but the maturity you have come to exhibit will be on display and actually quite impressive to those around you. Friday could be a bit of a bombshell. It’s not impossible you meet someone out of the blue, but there is something unsettling about this union, or it has a destabilizing quality. Contacts like this are exciting but inherently unstable. Friends could play a role in making the introduction. The weekend is ideal for refection as a lot of interior energy is percolating deep within you and you have a unique opportunity to access it. As Mercury begins a retrograde in your sign, this attunement will enable you to navigate the road to what is lying ahead the next threshold. You will cross it early next year.

jan2-copy   CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
You continue to navigate your psyche, and realize there are still some conditioned patterns of behavior that are limiting your effectiveness. Between now and your birthday, you’ll be learning to relinquish these and setting the stage for a new way of life that is about to open up to you. To do this you’ll be taking an imaginary crow bar to some deeply entrenched attitudes and behaviors, including addictions, should they be a problematic aspect of your existence, and removing them in order to free yourself. This is a process that began in 2014 and has been punctuated by complications from aspects formed by other planets, most notably the square to Neptune in 2016. You get a message early Tuesday that you still have a bit of mining to do, and will by January come into a whole new state and stage of being. A professional opportunity could come at you like a curve ball Friday. Stay attentive and alert. This weekend is perfect for taking in an art show or musical performance with good friends. A sweet harmony prevails in this period.

feb2-copy   AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Dynamic influences are at work and especially visible in your social networks or among friends and colleagues. While there is excitement around certain arrangements and conditions, you may also be reconsidering a few of your alliances and whether they are appropriate for you. Over the last several years you likely outgrew some old friendships, but this might be a time in which you reflect on these changes and reach out to new people to network with. Friday can be a bit volatile and you can make a smashing new contact or potentially fall out with someone you have tired. Professionally this is a powerful time, with more still to come. In store could be a very lucrative and rewarding position. Events next weekend point to success for you, especially where you have been applying a creative approach. Those around you may not have understood the intuitive hunches you have been following but all will soon be revealed, likely in the form of a promotion or new position that enables you to utilize your innate talents.

march2-copy   PISCES February 19 – March 20
Venus winds down her tour of Scorpio, giving you one more week to take in the good vibes. While a strong emphasis has been placed on your place in the public eye over recent weeks it is about to intensify. A message or conversation on Tuesday has a very serious quality to it and you need to really take this one in. A matter associated with the professional realm needs to be addressed, and events this week, perhaps even simply a sense of new awareness, offer a glimpse into what is on offer if you put in the time. You have to take the long view, as this matter won’t be resolved until early next year. What happens now is important and plan a role in the eventual resolution, but will be modified enormously next month, so keep commitments loose and non-binding. Next weekend features one of the most beautiful periods you’ve likely experienced in quite some time. Jupiter angles Neptune in your sign and generates a positive ambience, especially where you are thinking more optimistically about the future and how far you can really go.

STARSCOPES:

april2-copy

ARIES: You are getting more and more focused on your personal self expression, or choosing a love relationship over your crew. The 17th – 21st are very revealing of the direction you should be heading over the next year. Developments augment your long range objectives, and are positively influenced by your own motivation to autonomy and independence. A newly emerging maturity intermingles with your innovative temperament to marvelous effect right now. An unsettling dynamic affecting your relationship/career, unresolved since late last year comes up again around the 4th. You can free yourself of this problem once and for all if you remain diplomatic. Very encouraging vibrations on the 20th enhance love within a partnership. Time to take it to the next level? The 27th is very auspicious for a long term commitment.

may2-copy

TAURUS: Huge culminations this month both professionally and with your residence or family are due, many of the events that unfold now are the result of work or decisions that have been going on behind the scenes since at least February, if not for years. The whole month is ripe with activity, but the exact eclipses affecting your home (Aug. 7th) and profession (Aug. 21) will set the precise turning points. You may suddenly decide to change locale and reboot in a new state or even country. This place calls you, though it might take until September to shake out all the details. Extraordinary developments 10th, 13th, 20 – 22, and the 27th all signal very positive developments. A new job may play a role in the success you have now, and you should expect the very best, even if totally unexpectedly, during this incredible period.

june2-copy

GEMINI: This will be a pivotal month for partnerships and relationships as you see the door closing on affiliations with people you have outgrown or through the culmination of your own academic goals. You are making space for your day to day life and keeping your range of activity closer to home. This could be a prolific period for writing or creating a new web series or podcast. You’ll likely work with people in your neighborhood, or even with a sibling on this project. The whole month is very favorable (with the dates of the 10th, 13th, 20th, 21st, and 22nd being *exceptional*) and you may find around the end of the month things really click in a partnership. You may even find that someone who had seemed problematic or difficult in the past turns out to be a great ally, and really helps you achieve your own cherished desires. Who knew?

july2-copy

CANCER: Your financial world gets rocked as one source of income, most likely tied to your spouse or a lender, comes to an end and a new order of personal income opens up in it’s place. If you have successfully followed the cues that were stimulated in February you get a huge boost now. It’s also possible you have managed to clear up a debt or other obligation that allows you to access or keep more of your own earnings. Compelling developments on the 7th and 21st speak to this, although very significant opportunities and insights around the 17th and 28th also highlight what is to be. Venus in your sign from the 1st generates a positive ambience for pleasure and romance, and you can put it all on the line in the name of love on the 12th. A turning point on the 15th intensifies your commitment. Time to decide if you are in or out on this crucial date. Great prospects for your profession and income arise on the 13th, 20th, 21st, 22nd and 27th. Use these to schedule your important meetings and to launch your initiatives. You continue to benefit from innovation and adhering to a strong work ethic. Go for it.

aug2-copy

LEO: Big changes are percolating this month with Eclipses on the 7th and 21st opening the doors to endings and beginnings. Relationships have a fated quality to them, and developments are very auspicious as lucky and beneficial Jupiter harmonizes the Aquarius (partnerships) eclipse on the 7th. Your personal development is highlighted, and much if this you have to do on your own, however. All parts of your life are highlighted though and extend from this incredible burst of energy, a great feeling of manifestation seems to flow from you at this time and especially around the 21st. This is a great time to plan a wedding or vacation with your spouse. Financial loose ends need to get tied up, as Mercury retrogrades from the 13th – September 5th. You may be collecting payments owed to you or negotiating paperwork tied to a mortgage, settlement or loan. Evasive Neptune muddles proceedings mid month. Wait for early September to seal the deal.

sep2-copy

VIRGO: Eclipses signal changes in your work – life balance, with very positive breakthroughs in this period if you take some time away from a hectic work load or schedule and book some personal time. Very beguiling conditions around a relationship from the 7th – 19th can see you reaching for an elusive or mysterious lover. You’ll need some times to think things through, though. Wait till later in September to put those feelings into words. The 17th and 28th offer some incredibly revealing insights regarding your inner workings. A romantic getaway can provide a nice outlet on the 12th. Friends and recreation can also be favorable, though tensions on the 15th and 24th can put you at odds with your crew or clique. The 20th, 26th and 27th are all very favorable for attending for domestic, family or residential matters. You may get assistance, financial or otherwise from behind the scenes.

oct2-copy

LIBRA: You continue to reach new heights, and may receive incredible assistance to reach your goals. Your reputation can really escalate at this time and this is a favorable period in which to promote your talents and public profile. Those in artistic professions can really shine on the 12th, as very inspirational and creative vibes are present. A group enterprise that may have started percolating in February really begins to take off in this phase as well, with a great deal coming together swiftly around the time of the eclipse on the 21st. You have to take this one a little slow, as Mercury retro seems to stall your progress through the beginning of next month. You may also get sudden news about a pregnancy, or a romance could heat up quite quickly as well around the time of the eclipse on the 7th. A friend or social event could provide a launch pad for a chance encounter that sets your heart on fire.

nov2-copy

SCORPIO: You may be saying farewell to a home or place, while your inner most private life is affected positively by the eclipse on the 7th. You reconcile a very personal challenge to your satisfaction early in the month. Romantic passions are aroused mid month, are you in or out? A second eclipse on the 21st is very powerful and continues to move you up the ladder of success. Your greatest ambitions are implicated. Events around the 17th are stunning. The 20th, 22nd and 27th all bode well for long sought financial security, and it’s likely a position you hold in this period allows for such a development. There will be hard working and unexpected moments this month, but the trip you are on is nothing less than completely exhilarating. Ride it for all it is worth, this is genuinely a once in a lifetime moment for you professionally.

dec2-copy

SAGITTARIUS: You’ll be at your best this month if you are traveling or having an adventure of some kind, as there are incredible auspices for a very enjoyable journey, especially around the 20th and 21st. An eclipse in Leo on the 21st in particular can bring up an exciting opportunity and you may be invited to present your creative work abroad. Relations and intimacy continue to develop this month. Love is teaching you to trust and create security. Money or resources through your spouse or within a shared equity situation can be available. The 15th and 24th could be challenging in this regard, as it’s hard to see eye to eye or reach an agreement. Mercury retro impacts you professionally. You may find a negotiation stalls or that an enterprise requires reconfiguration before it can move forward.

jan2-copy

CAPRICORN: Money and resources come into sharp focus this month with two eclipses opening and closing doors on the financial fronts. All bets should be on developing your intimate and financial partnerships, as the opportunities now reside through collaboration with another to build security through this collaboration. Combining forces will enable you to thrive both personally and together, so the person you choose for this journey needs to be someone you trust and genuine want to see grow with you. Select the 20th – 22nd for your most important meetings and discussions (but wait until September 5 to seal the deal, as Mercury is retrograde!). Very positive professional opportunities emerge around the 27th, though you might be working behind the scenes on this one. This is a great period of self discovery and intuition. You can gaze deeply into your deepest desires and manifest them now.

feb2-copy

AQUARIUS: This one is really the big kahuna, as eclipses on the 7th and 21st rock your axis of identity and partnerships, generating a remarkable ambience for fated meetings and developments. The 10th, 13th, 20th, 22nd and 27th are all ideal for making a long range commitment in a relationship that has gone the duration and ready to move into the next stage of evolution. Someone could enter your orbit on the 17th or 28th that changes the direction of your life significantly. Secret motivations and hindrances from the past will provide some turning points, you may need to resolve an outstanding issue as old challenges on the 4th and 15th resurface. A shared financial matter (loans, alimony payments or a spouses’ income) require reappraisal as Mercury retrogrades on the 13th. You get a better sense of where the money is coming from (or how to get it) on the 26th.

march2-copy

PISCES: A new job or assignment comes in, totally rocking your world and helping you ascend towards a long range professional goal around the 21st. Financial matters can improve quickly as a result of this. The 13th and 22nd are very powerful for reaching your destination. You find the strength to release the past in this cycle, equally debilitating habits or addiction can be relinquished. This will happen quietly and privately, behind the scenes. Venus moves into the pleasure zone and there can be some amazing moments with a loved one, or through a creative activity. The 12th is one of the most romantic dates of the entire year, make the most of it! Some challenges to your agenda may arise on the 15th and 24th. The 17th signals a desire to go overboard, easy does it. Mercury retro from the 13th can bring a prior association back into your orbit, but watch this tricky phase, nothing is what it seems.
