Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio 2019

The upcoming Mercury retrograde cycle is especially potent, as it stimulates an ongoing discussion or negotiation with Saturn and Pluto – conjunct January 12th 2020 at 22′ Capricorn. What is being worked through now has very significant implications not only for the upcoming Sun/Mercury cycle, but also sets the stage for many developments over the course of next year.

Between January 10th and 13th, 2020, the Sun, Mercury, Saturn and Pluto all conjunct in Capricorn, signaling a momentous surge of energy and initiation where ~22′ Cap resides in your chart. It would appear that the events, conversations and choices that are made over these coming two months clear the decks and set the stage for what will emerge at this critical point at the dawn of 2020.

From Scorpio, Mercury is incredibly subjective. Over the course of the pre-retro shadow/retrograde/post-retro shadow phases, you may notice substantial shifts in personal consciousness about a particular topic. One day things appear a certain way, then a short time later, completely different, even though superficially nothing has changed.

What has occurred is an internal reorientation to the situation, and how you feel about something or someone is likely to go through a large degree of transition between now and December. An especially useful date to note is October 18th, when information or an insight arrives that indicates the topic of the learning curve revealed during the upcoming cycle.

Putting something into motion on this date is not entirely fruitless, so long as you are prepared to watch this thing completely mutate and evolve into a distinctively different shape between now and December 1st, when Mercury makes its’ third and final transit at 19′ Scorpio. It’s here the pieces really fall into place.

The significance of 19′ Scorpio is that it is the position of the mid retrograde conjunction of Sun – Mercury (November 11th) and thus indicates the primary topic of the resolution being sought after during this phase. At this time, a major piece of the puzzle is revealed and resolution begins to move into frame.

Saturn and Pluto have a strong influence throughout the retro cycle, but are working in a supportive placement to Mercury, suggesting long range and even endemic issues can be resolved between now and New Year through patience, determination and the in-depth analysis required to see them through. Clearing the way for the next cycle in early January (which coincides with a Cancer eclipse in precise opposition) is the critical message – and opportunity- the Universe is dealing right now.

Stargazer Weekly 3/24-30

WEEKLY FORECAST:

Retrograde Mercury moves back into lockstep with Neptune, making a rare and unusually long conjunction lasting from Monday through Friday. Inspiration and intuition are potent, but the potential for errors in judgement exceptionally high. De ja vous (even connected to past lives or other dimensions) is possible, as is attunement to extra-sensory perception. Tap into the exceptional creative and imaginative potential being illuminated, but hold back on any kind of crucial commitments or decisions. This combination can make for extreme gullibility. From the end of the week, its time to emerge from wonderland and climb out of the murk and treacle. Mercury will be it’s usual nimble self again in a couple more weeks. 

Venus joins up with the Pisces gang mid week, adding even more emphasis to an already squishy ambience. Relationships take on transcendental romantic overtones, as feelings of love can saturate to the core level of soul experience. The visionary ability and artistic quality expressed during this time can not be understated, and fortunate connections to Mars in Taurus as well as Saturn in Capricorn can ground these etherial impressions, making it possible to find a tangible outlet for these esoteric and otherworldly impulses. As always with pronounced Pisces/Neptune influences present, be wary of susceptibility to those who might prey on vulnerability. Likewise, if people are sending mixed signals or acting vague, take it at face value rather than make excuses for evasive behaviour. 

Over the weekend the Pluto – South Node conjunction locks into place, signaling profound catharsis (look at 23’ Capricorn in your chart) and a significant time in which to eliminate and purge the dead and outworn. There is dual potential – on one hand the karmic implications of an abuse of power comes term now, though alternately the potential for positive manifestation or culmination of events and conditions that precipitated nine years ago during North Node conjunct Pluto 3’ Capricorn November 5 – 21, 2010. Remember with the nodes involved that time lines accelerate and things tend to be a bit turbulent while the hands of destiny steer the ship.

Also look to the house ruled by Pluto (Scorpio) in your chart, as this area could be debilitated or exhibit changes or even transform dramatically at this time. Evolution occurs now from which little will be salvaged afterwards. Let go of what has been outgrown and accept that what is happening was meant to be. Purification rituals can be especially potent now. If you find yourself experiencing the more corrosive attributes of this transit – likely expressed through power struggles, harboring resentment or subconsciously provoking crisis, this is probably a signal that you are clinging to precisely what needs to released, focused on the past and not the future. The way through (and ultimately out) is to pour your energy emphatically and without any hesitation towards the directive of your chart house containing 23’ Cancer. Feeding the Pluto – South Node beast is an exercise in futility and will only deplete you. There is nothing down that hole. Face up and move forward instead.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

Despite all the mushy bizarro vibes out there, you get a big boost with the Sun now in your sign, illuminating the potential for future exploration and development. As much as you seek to make an impact on the world, so much continues to transpire within your private realms, signaling attention is pushed towards your inner life. Imagination is stimulated, and could yield treasures either in terms of healing through releasing habits rooted in subconscious conditioning or even expression of artistic genius. Pluto – South Node brings something to term regarding your professional or life path. Here, too, an ending of some description occurs. Metamorphosis is your theme this week, though you determine what form you will take at the end of this transformation.  

2019 Horoscope // April Horoscope // Daily Forecast

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Friends and friends with benefits continue to be a major emphasis, though you may be reconsidering how fruitful some of these alliances are. Clarity comes with Mercury righting it’s course from the end of the week and in the days to come. Venus in a more supportive angle to your sign offers a more supportive and nurturing ambience. Partnership dynamics are intensified with Pluto – South Node. The potential for unresolved conflict surrounding past indiscretions to resurface is high, though this signals that matters need to be dealt with and settled permanently. If a relationship is too vulnerable to withstand this period of transformation, then it might be time to let it go. Give crucial decisions a few more weeks to gestate.  

2019 Horoscope // April Horoscope // Daily Forecast

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

You seek an idealized circumstance in your professional realm and have the potential to realize a dream if you can manage to keep your vision grounded in what is realistically attainable at this time. This story has a few more weeks yet to be written and current circumstances could be a bit peculiar or perplexing. The presence of Venus at the apex of your chart is very fortunate, indicating that your life direction is guided by a love relationship or that you desire  creative self expression through your career. A supportive ambience in which to realize your goals enhances your prospects. Keep your focus on your own income and resources, entanglements with others will be unproductive.  

2019 Horoscope // April Horoscope // Daily Forecast      

CANCER June 21 – July 22

Venus from Pisces is highly supportive and enhances your creative yearnings. This puts you in a good position to mitigate some of the challenges a partnership could undergo this week into next. Children or your living arrangements (or both) could be the subject of obstinate disagreement and reorganization. Certain situations may simply have reached their expiration date, and if so, it’s time to scrap and release that which is no longer serving your growth. As you undergo inner transformation, the impact on your external associations or circumstances becomes particularly apparent now. Dynamics are shifting significantly. Put yourself first, and stay focused on your needs.    

2019 Horoscope // April Horoscope // Daily Forecast

LEO July 23 – August 22

As much as you would like to get your head around the nitty gritty details of a financial agreement things are just a bit too vague to pin down for the time being. Be especially wary about schemes that promise more than can realistically be delivered, the potential to be swindled or let down is pretty high right now. A power struggle with coworkers or challenges to lead a more productive lifestyle could come to a head. The fastest way through is to let go of all the stuff that isn’t working, especially habits that are debilitating your effectiveness. Taking time out or away could be exactly what you need to resolve an endemic issue.    

2019 Horoscope // April Horoscope // Daily Forecast

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

It could be the best or worst time for your romantic relationship. There is so much potential to realize a cherished dream within a relationship, though this is only possible if you can release the past and transform your association with and through love itself. Some form of catharsis is inevitable and holding on to what isn’t working is going to create discomfort. Seeing only what you want to is equally problematic, and the ambience is particularly beguiling in this regard – over idealizing a person or circumstance (here again likely attached to the past) is likely holding back your growth and evolution. Chalk it up to bygones and move forward willingly. A very bright future awaits.            

2019 Horoscope // April Horoscope // Daily Forecast

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

You hold the potential to transform yourself from the inside out right now. Cathartic events or circumstances will require a profound reorganization of your innermost world, although eradicating any negative (usually childhood) conditioning you have endured leaves you free to progress towards your potential for achievement, offering incredible gains. Certain subjective patterns are being exposed, and it’s likely many of these are inhibiting you. While you can’t change where you came from or what you have already been through, this is a productive week in which to consider the elements of your life you do control, and how this can empower you towards attaining the life you actually want.     

2019 Horoscope // April Horoscope // Daily Forecast 

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

It’s time to let go of certain ideas and opinions and focus your energy on real knowledge and experience. You’ve likely transformed your message and how you express it over the last nine years and a new cycle is beginning now in regard to how and even what you think. Romance could feature enticing overtures, though you might still be nursing a broken heart or thinking about someone from the past. A recurring dream about a person or place could reveal clues about unresolved feelings sitting in your heart space. Nest with these for now, but be prepared to move forward from the end of the week. Take or make an invitation on the 27th.

2019 Horoscope // April Horoscope // Daily Forecast

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22 – Dec 21

While a highly independent and competent person, it is worthwhile to examine how collaboration could be beneficial to you. Those most comfortable with themselves and possessing genuine awareness of what they have to offer are not afraid to ask others for assistance – they know they will be able to reciprocate. If domestic or personal matters have been a bit squirrly, some of the edge is coming off with Venus entering the picture and bringing in some harmony over the next months. From the end of the week, circumstances can be rectified and if relocation or settling matters regarding your living space has been difficult, conditions improve in the early weeks of April.  

2019 Horoscope // April Horoscope // Daily Forecast

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19 

A facet of your existence is coming to an end – as a metaphorical resurrection occurs over the coming weeks. Signals have been gestating since last July, with even more prominent indications early this January setting the stage for changes. Ultimately the goal is a better you – and what you clear away now illuminates the way for a meaningful relationship to take root. Fated meetings can transpire with April – July being especially potent. Sweet harmonies prevail well into next month and a loving communique Wednesday could really tap your sweet spot. Lots of daydreaming could make for an unproductive week overall, though creative insights or a flash of artistic inspiration is definitely worth exploring.        

2019 Horoscope // April Horoscope // Daily Forecast

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

The space surrounding your income or assets is especially soft and fuzzy this week, making it a less than optimum time for decision making regarding any crucial arrangements about money. From the end of the week, Mercury rights it’s course and the situation becomes easier to deal with, as perplexing circumstances over the prior month yield and answers are easier to come by. If you do feel inspiration percolating and you have ideas that could grow your business prospects, particularly through some creative means or activity, by all means note these. From the second week of April you could get the green light to move forward on these. 

2019 Horoscope // April Horoscope // Daily Forecast

PISCES February 19 – March 20

It’s much more about who you are than who you know right now, and your eye and emphasis should be trained on what you are cultivating yourself, as opposed to what others are doing. In some cases this means having to go off on your own or even releasing relationships no longer compatible with where you are heading. Inspiration is on high right now and focusing on a creative project could be just the right thing. On the other hand, deceit can (or perhaps already has) played some kind of role here and the bubble could burst if so. You are unfettered with Venus cruising through your sign, and from the end of the week, you move into one of your most auspicious seasons for 2019.    

2019 Horoscope // April Horoscope // Daily Forecast

Stargazer Weekly 3/10-16

WEEKLY FORECAST:

Despite Mercury continuing it’s retrograde motion back through Pisces, this is actually a big week punctuated with some really pivotal events and decisions. Although still not the best time to make a lasting commitment, something pretty substantial occurs towards the end of the week that propels the major themes and activities of the next four months forward, ready or not!

Sun and Mercury meet up between 23 – 24 Pisces late on Thursday, squaring Jupiter (optimism!) and harmonizing the Nodal Axis, thus tapping into destiny, the future and the past. With Jupiter involved, whatever gets under way comes in on overdrive, and the potential for taking something on that can not reasonably be handled is high. At the same time, the enthusiasm and range of perspective stimulated could be precisely the trigger needed to overcome an approach that has has played it safe for too long, delaying progress out of fear of what might happen by just jumping in and getting dirty. 

Mars combines it’s efforts with Saturn, building a sense of momentum while reducing the likelihood of anyone going too far off script. This makes for a steadying and ultimately more conventional approach overall, though if you feel compelled to flip the storyline you have been handed and can actually back it up through a sustained effort and with the resources available to you, then go for it! This is a rare sort of configuration and the time is ripe for bringing a big agenda to fruition. 

Favorable interaction with the Nodes indicates that your inner guidance won’t let you get too far off the course of your destiny, and when events or opportunities that emerge this week have that perfect fit feeling to them – you know you are in exactly the right place at the right time. What occurs now builds on the awareness that has been resonating since the beginning of the year, (also look back to February 25th, when Mercury initially visited this degree for clues) and shifts the narrative in favor of the direction where you are headed next. The concepts and conversations that arise now point to an important event and new beginning that is set to arrive this Summer. 

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES 

March 20 – April 19

The week hinges on a very personal matter, perhaps connected with your residence or family. What occurs is most likely to go down behind closed doors, and affects your most private life. It’s possible you reveal a secret to someone close that changes the trajectory of a situation. Your efforts to establish a reputation as a reliable and conscientious leader in your industry are beginning to pay off for you. You have opportunities this week to demonstrate your skills, especially in regards to negotiation. Go for what you are worth.

TAURUS 

April 20 – May 20

Pushing out of your comfort zone is favored now, especially with motivated Mars on board to help you break new ground. Long range goals are in your cross hairs and you do well to apply yourself towards building a future you can look forward to. A taste of what’s in store on Monday could pique your interest.   

2019 FORECAST // EXTENDED WEEKLY // DAILY SCOPE

GEMINI 

May 21 – June 20

Professional circumstances that recently come of the rails benefit from some clarification this week. A close partnership seems to shape your perspective or decision regarding your life path and goals. You are doing a great deal behind the scenes right now, perhaps even doing some very personal, inner work and recalibrating your orientation for future success. In April you will see everything fall together quite effortlessly, though the concerns and choices you make right now hold a lot of weight moving forward.     

2019 FORECAST // EXTENDED WEEKLY // DAILY SCOPE

CANCER 

June 21 – July 22

Someone from a great distance could bring you a message that changes your viewpoint quite significantly. A personal decision is impacted, though you are likely elated by information you receive. A partnership goes from strength to strength, especially where shared dreams and aspirations bring you together. Social activities provide a bright and upbeat connections, or you can meet someone new while out and about. Mutual interests provide an intersection ripe for exploration and discovery.

July 23 – August 22

Events this week tap into very mysterious dimensions for you Leo, and it’s possible groundbreaking metamorphosis is occurring in your life right now.

VIRGO 

August 23 – Sep 22

A very important conversation or realization occurs this week within your most important partnership, and it’s possible you are rekindling your connection with a former flame.

With Saturn overseeing your love interests, you are ready for something serious. The overall vibe is harmonious, with Mars in Taurus providing steady and determined motivation to reach your biggest goals.           

2019 FORECAST // EXTENDED WEEKLY // DAILY SCOPE

LIBRA 

Sep 23 – Oct 23

You begin to come to a conclusion about a work or health matter that has been a source of some degree of bewilderment. Getting back on track with a diet or fitness regiment bolsters your productivity immeasurably and enables you to reach a career objective. Reorganizing some of the moving parts of a plan in order to be more efficient is also starred. A challenging situation concerning your residence or private life can also be addressed this week, with an assured movement forward when you get to the heart of the matter.

SCORPIO 

Oct 24 – Nov 21

Desire and your creative potency is highlighted, with a potential breakthrough or realization occurring late in the week that could really set you into motion.

Communication with a partner features and agreements you make now can really stand the test of time.

SAGITTARIUS  

Nov 22 – Dec 21

The fog could begin to lift on a confusing residential situation by the weeks end. This one takes a little longer to untangle (think second week of April) but there are clues or evidence suggesting that a solution is in sight. Try to keep your responses to a situation proportionate to the actual size of the issue. Financial circumstances also show signs of improvement and going the distance on your current assignment demonstrates an admirable work ethic that can lead to substantial and sustainable earnings. Keep the pace moderate and consistent to get the most out of your work.

CAPRICORN 

Dec 22 – Jan 19 

Imagination is stimulated with some real hits of inspiration coming in (think waves hitting the shoreline) that propel ideas and creative endeavors forward. Intuition runs strong in this phase and though you are still likely to be getting some mixed signals, you seem to be able to read between the lines. A strong sense of inner assurance prevails, and especially where there have may been difficulties in getting your personal objectives underway last year, you are finally gaining momentum. A partnership benefits from an open mind.

If in the process of negotiation for a promotion, pay or benefits structure, then it’s  likely developments or a significant conversation towards the end of the week could signal a turning point. Feel free to keep up the inter-exchange going for a few more weeks, as you might determine or discover a better opportunity is right around the corner. Your personal life continues to command a lot of your attention and resources. Make concessions as required.

A lot seems to be at stake for Pisces right now, as many elements of your life seem to reach a cross roads, particularly over the last few days of the week. Under these auspices, it could be easy to get carried away, as so much of the news reaching you is probably good! Take everything in without leveraging too much weight upon one or another outcome for the time being, as there is still more to be revealed over the coming weeks. On the other hand, if a flash of inspiration sparks your creative mojo, go for it and don’t look back!

2019 FORECAST // EXTENDED WEEKLY // DAILY SCOPE      

Stargazer Weekly Forecast 3/3 – 3/9

WEEKLY FORECAST:

The New Moon in Pisces activates initiative towards accomplishing a cherished objective, though Mercury retrograding at the same time generates a highly confusing ambience in which to do so. The Saturn – Neptune sextile is tapped and very significant to the New Moon configuration, stimulating desire to bring a visionary project to realization. With Mercury only able to make lateral moves – if any at all – a spanner is temporarily thrown into the process. Mercury works it’s way back to Neptune and the degree of the New Moon as it turns direct towards the end of the month, reactivating the themes and topics illuminated this week. It appears something has to be dealt with or reconsidered over the next three weeks in order to articulate the vision that guides the intentions revealed during the New Moon phase on Wednesday. 

While the next few weeks could prove beguiling, and what feels like pervasive setbacks are likely to throw matters off course, it’s likely a decision or forward movement hinges on information that simply isn’t available, or an idea that hasn’t occurred to you yet. Take it a step at a time and see what is uncovered. A flash of inspiration is waiting in the wings. Second chances are possible, and if the hectic pace of the year has prevented you from taking care of one thing or another, you might find you have the time now. From the end of next week, the plot thickens considerably….  

Uranus teased it’s transit in Taurus last year from mid – May through early November and is now ready to seal the deal. Stability is tested during this transit, especially in regard to financial systems (Taurus governs the gold and the Geld after all,) and innovative or futuristic applications to these will likely proliferate, with more online (and AI assisted) transactions as well as new forms of exchange such as cryptocurrency continuing to establish credibility and potentially disrupt the current systems. I shared the following reflections on the Uranus – Taurus transit in 2017: 

“…Expect economic upheaval, for as certainly that some monetary systems will crumble, new ones will come into existence. This will be a longer range trend that extends well beyond 2018, as the Uranus in Taurus transit eluded to here will endure through April of 2026. Taurus governs money and possessions, Uranus the new and unconventional. These two qualities exist in fundamental conflict: Taurus represents that which is steady and reliable…. Enter Uranus and it’s distinctive tendency for disruption of the status quo…. So there is a period of disorder ahead related to the security applied to banks, credit cards, financial institutions and the economy itself….” 

While this is the overarching influence of the transit, it’s where Uranus lands in your chart you will experience the liberation most directly, and it’s likely these larger societal shifts will be what makes it possible for you. Individuals with important chart factors in early degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius will be affected by the more destabilizing and abrasive attributes of transit up front. Fixed sign modality is also likely to find this the hardest to deal with than any of them.  

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

Uranus moves out of your sign and brings it’s liberating force to your earnings and savings. Going into business with a group of friends or within a collective endeavor could produce successful results over the coming years. You do your best to not anticipate a particular outcome right now, though you can be assured there will be plenty of ups and downs, all reflecting an experimental approach meant to offer you greater autonomy and freedom overall. What ever has been commonplace is unlikely to last this transit!  

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Quirky Uranus roots down in your house of self and identity, maybe not your best look, but one you might get used to in time? The innate conflict between the zodiacs radical bad boy and your essentially down to earth demeanor will push you to grow in ways you might not altogether be comfortable with. Try to accommodate some give and take, and you might find the experience liberating, or discover an aspect of yourself that sets you on a whole new life course all together. Big changes are on the horizon if you dare to walk to the edge. 

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

There are breakthroughs where your most compulsive habits lie and as these rise to the surface, you have the potential to release them. Psychic phenomena, dreams or premonitory experiences can be highly illuminating in this phase, and you may even develop a sixth sense, assuming you had not connected to it previously. You confront a spiritual dimension of yourself in a way previously unexperienced and this has the benefit of helping you to realize and release subconscious patterns that you may have not even realized were there.       

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope

CANCER June 21 – July 22

Uranus has generated a highly stimulating atmosphere in your professional life over these prior years, and while seeking an authentic life path has likely provided memorable experiences and opportunities for self discovery, unstable conditions were frequently upsetting. The next few years are positive for outreach and combining your talents with those who share your goals. A project you have sought to initiate in regard to technology can come to fruition now as well. Socially this is also an appropriate time to expand your circle and incorporate broader viewpoints into your perspective.

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope

LEO July 23 – August 22

The next several years could provide some unexpected changes in direction and a partner could play a pivotal role in the opportunities that are coming your way. It’s equally possible you are required to reorient your own objectives to accommodate changes that they are going through to keep a relationship afloat. Ultimately this will all be quite liberating, but if you cling too hard to what you know or what you think is right, this process could prove to be upsetting. Moving out of your comfort zone and taking a chance on the unexpected gets you further fastest, offering liberation.    

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope  

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

New horizons open under the auspices of the Uranus transit for Virgo, and a great adventure that may have only been teased last year now opens up new vistas of experience. You endured several growing pains over the last few years, particularly in your close relationships which were highly cathartic and live changing. Now the fruits of those efforts pay off, and the coming years will emphasize reaching out into unexpected new frontiers of awareness and knowledge. Expanding your mind and consciousness and putting your stamp on the world is encouraged.             

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

The edge comes off your relationships, and while there have been liberating experiences over these prior years this has come with the cost of upheaval and instability. Having discovered a more authentic way to relate to others, you can now shift attention to deeper interpersonal matters. Cathartic experiences are possible here, as you find you have the power to eliminate even the most compulsive behavior patterns. To the extent these are affecting your personal relationships, these realizations will help you cultivate better associations both personally and financially.  

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

Uranus in opposition to your sign provides a disruptive influence within your relational realm. The learning curve over the next few years is going to be about finding ways to relate more honestly and authentically. You meet people who provoke very intense responses from you and it’s possible to perceive this energy as confrontational. This pattern repeats itself indefinitely until you acknowledge another person as their own unique self and relinquish all neurotic and co-dependent attachments to controlling them. Liberation comes when you trust yourself enough to let your partner be free.  

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22 – Dec 21

Uranus in Taurus will ask you to examine your freedom, and challenge you to change your routines and schedule to have more flexibility in your lifestyle, engendering a more liberated day to day existence. Obviously this is most readily expressed through your job, and if you have a profession you love, this transit will provide you with the opportunity to find exciting new ways to develop your productivity. If you are feeling oppressed by the grind of a 9-5 (or whatever your version of that is) it is likely to produce a more volatile period during which you will seek out greater independence in how you live and earn. 

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19 

A tricky and fundamentally taxing period comes to an end. You’ve maneuvered the way through a lot of changes down in your root cellar, likely experiencing some dramatic shifts residentially while seeking to establish more independence in your personal life. Having overcome some extraordinary challenges, you are now free to engage a more creative perspective, rekindling your spark and finding new ways in which to express yourself. Technology or something unconventional could play a role. Earnings increase exponentially through the self-discovery you make, enabling even greater creative pursuits to flourish.         

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

You could make some startling discoveries about your heritage that transforms your connection to your past or lineage. At the same time, family members and obligations to them which have become constricting and you may seek to liberate yourself from the responsibilities others hold you to. The home you live in could undergo substantial changes or your living arrangements may transform to accommodate the freedom you seek in this period. Not the easiest process, but one that will assure you much greater range of motion and self expression in time. Attend to your roots.

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope 

PISCES February 19 – March 20

Socially this is set to be a really interesting passage for you, with learning and education an especially hot area ripe for exploration. Innovation and new methods or research could be particularly appealing to you. You curiosity will be aroused unexpectedly or by topics you may have never considered particularly interesting, stimulating adventures into entirely new intellectual or theoretical spaces. There is an open quality and you will find discussing interesting and even unusual ideas with fascinating people, cultivating a broad entourage of diverse individuals as you learn and grow.

Stargazer Weekly 2/17-23

Pisces time… Welcome to the Life Aquatic…

WEEKLY FORECAST:

 A string of aspects occurs this week while Mercury enters shadow, all of which will be revisited in March then again in early April, suggesting the next few days are the opening act of a work in progress that extends over the next eight weeks. Recurring aspects include links to Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto and the North Node – all framing the upcoming Mercury retrograde phase and playing integral roles in the storyline unfolding. It may initially feel like an unravelling, of course, but it is so that all the component parts can be reassembled in better way further down the line and with a refreshed perspective. 

Neptune is the star of this show, so pay particular attention to events, insights and even premonitions that arise around Tuesday as these will resonate significantly when Mercury goes direct around March 28th. Clarity is likely to be in short supply, but creativity and inspiration flow abundantly. If you are psychic, empathic or suggestible, this could be an off the charts period for you! This combination can also incline living in a fools paradise, sustaining an illusion that everything is okey-dokey, despite the glaring signals that they aren’t, and this caveat should equally remain present in the thought process. The overall atmosphere is harmonious, so make the best of it, even if certain matters seem to come to a standstill.

The Earth element remains strong and is anchored by the Full Moon in Virgo on the 19th. The tone is pragmatic and motivated to attainment, efficiency and overall material growth or security. Particularly where Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn have caused concern or revealed vulnerabilities to the overall structure during the last several weeks, new solutions can be found to reconcile persistent issues. Meanwhile, if Venus encounters the same perils and circumstances still appear bleak – this is an indication that certain topics still require priority status and that a greater effort should be made towards their reconciliation. 

The way through is a steady and concentrated approach towards the resolution of a problem once and for all and for the long run. Pluto has pointed to (or rather stabbed at!) this matter and generated incredible upheaval in this area for years, now Saturn requires it be dealt with, and to do so requires consistency and discipline. Neptune’s influence here indicates the potential to make a sacrifice, the ability to surrender material or superficial considerations to engage a spiritual perspective that alleviates some of the pain points associated with undertaking the hard work Saturn requires at this time. 

How things appear now is far detached from the outcome that is revealed in two months, though since the results will probably exceed the expectations you currently have, what occurs between now and then can only provide an upside. This is a very positive week to attend to pressing matters, business or otherwise, (even if results come in a bit later) and plant seeds for what you would like to see manifest in about 2 months. By the time Mercury rights it’s course, Venus will be joining in the conversation from Pisces and these matters will come together effortlessly.

2019 HoroscopeMonthly HoroscopeDaily Horoscope

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 HOROSCOPES:

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

A Full Moon in your sign escalates your time frame on storylines that were put into motion in the late spring. A professional opportunity or committed relationship could be a major factor in a decision you make now.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

A new job or assignment preoccupies you over the coming month, or you may decide on a fitness regiment that enhances your well being and promotes higher productivity.

Changes in your domestic realm have a pronounced affect on where this is heading next.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Socially this can be an exciting time, and time spend with friends can be particularly satisfying and exhilarating. A project that has sat by the wayside or been harder to develop starts to show signals of movement.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

A romance could be rekindled this week, or at least you begin to feel inner movement that makes you desire a connection. For the time being, finances remain emphasized and you can do well now to bolster your earnings and savings. You might over extend yourself on Monday, so take it easy. A perplexing situation at work midweek requires some form of modification to your daily routine.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

The Sun in your sign from Thursday followed by a Full Moon the following day places emphasis on your closest relationship and where it is taking you. You likely feel optimistic about your prospects, but Mercury retrograde could slow a decision or commitment for a few more weeks.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

Self care is a major preoccupation, and rest is required right now to enhance your vitality.

Career maters become emphasized and people who can help you succeed tend to see you in a very positive light. A personal or residential matter is highlighted over the Full Moon phase, and your living situation could require drastic reorganization. Neptune direct from next Saturday puts you back in the zone, you feel more comfortable expressing your innate talents. Enjoy!

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.

AUGUST EXTENDED + WEEKLY FORECAST w. DAILY ASPECTS AVAILABLE TO SUBSCRIBERS ON PATREON

ARIES – The Ram

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to connect with the deepest reservoirs of your spirituality and innermost wisdom. From mid month, Mars re-enters the zone of public image, reputation, and career. You may reconsider your life direction, or make another go at an opportunity you missed early this year. After the 28th you’ll be ready to give it another shot.

TAURUS – The Bull

An unstable ambience around your living situation can find resolution this month, there is a message for you regarding this during the Leo eclipse on the 11th. 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. It’s time to integrate some of the new things you uncovered about yourself over the last three months. 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.
