STARGAZER HOROSCOPES:

april2-copy

ARIES: You reach a professional milestone around the Full Moon on the 9th, but testing influences with a family member or in regard to your residence can provide a less than advantageous atmosphere in which to ascend to your true calling. The 2nd, 10th, 17th and 20th can also be tempestuous. Work this out so you can enjoy the pleasurable social vibrations present from the 6th to the end of the month. The 18th is especially grand and you may meet someone really incredible in even the most routine of your daily affairs. Creative and romantic doors of opportunity open after the 23rd with even more to come next month. The 26th is dynamite for a new love relationship or a project connected to your self expression

may2-copy

TAURUS: There are dynamic influences unfolding and you may be preparing for a big adventure this month. The Full Moon on the 9th signals a new life direction for you, or that you get news from afar that allows you to travel or publish. You may be finalizing a course of study or wrapping up paperwork that will allow you to move forward with an educational pursuit. Finances are in a positive state this month with very good opportunities on the 7th and 18th to show what you got to the people who matter. A conversation you begin on the 6th regarding your residence will lead to bigger opportunities next month, a full scale home improvement or move across country could feature for you. Look at the 24th for clues.

june2-copy

GEMINI: Financials remain in tight focus, with a lot of energy applied to cultivating your resources and building up your bank account. You can have an important insight about security on the 5th. Be cautious not to over extend, it will be easy to imagine you have more than what is actually available. Venus in your sign from the 5th bestows loverly vibrations. You are at ease and ready to accept pleasure. The 18th and 30th are your best for important dates and developing a love connection. A more contentious flavor lies in store on the 24th and you may need to modify a commitment (or your own relationship to that commitment) in order to move forward in a partnership. A great deal of energy in your social life this month suggests a very exciting pace. You’ll love this one!

july2-copy

CANCER: Watch out for tricky and confrontational scenarios that may arise on the 2nd, 10th, 17th and 20th as rather contentious vibes can be present on these rather volatile dates. The Full Moon on the 9th signals a major commitment is culminating, and this union is underscored with passionate and romantic energy, making this a potent time for marriage or engagement. Venus remains tucked away behind the scenes for most of the month, suggesting there is a hidden facet to your love life right now, or that you might be caring for a distressed or ill partner. Finances are also a big topic this month into next and you can get key conversations and negotiations rolling on the 7th. The 19th is a great day for signing a contract or reaching an agreement. Mars activates energy from the 21st and you will be motivated to earnings (and spending in equal regard,) through early September. The New Moon on the 23rd signals changes.

aug2-copy

LEO: Socially this will be a very exciting time for you with a great deal of communication and events. The 18th is wonderful for a party or get together. Mars from your sign on the 21st encourages energy and passion towards the attainment of your personal goals. The Leo New Moon on the 23rd reveals (or begins to,) the major developments coming up. (Next month has a real WOW factor to it, eclipses are en route!) This is a highly stimulating period in which to take action. Events behind the scenes demand attention in the first part of the month. Confront a challenging person at your job or achieve your personal best during the New Moon on the 9th. You can effectively release the past and bad habits in this period, clearing the way for potent developments that will be on offer shortly.

sep2-copy

VIRGO: Career indications are still bright, the 18th is phenomenal to see financial gains through your chosen profession. There are early suggestions that your solar year is winding down as an element of closure comes to foreground. From the 6th you’ll notice a desire to withdraw so that thoughts may turn to what needs to end and be released as you prepare for a new cycle of growth and activity. By the 21st it will be time to nestle in for your own version of a long winters nap. A retreat or psychotherapy can be very useful in this period if you feel you need to address any leftover residue from the last 2 years Mars cycle that began in your sign back in late September of 2015. As this cycle was so deeply influenced by the Lunar Node transit, this may be helpful for clearing away the past and making room for the positive new beginnings coming in September.

oct2-copy

LIBRA: Domestic matters heat up this month, as a highly potent Full Moon on the 9th illuminates the changes that are occurring on the home front. You can take a stand for what you desire in this dynamic period. Neptune is helpful, so a compassionate attitude can soften the edges and bring about a positive outcome. The 17th can prove pivotal for the future of a professional association. Business partners can really test your patience and a foggy aspect to Venus at this time can soften your resolve. Listen and wait, if you can. A degree of urgency seems present here. The 18th offers a much better ambience and you might get good news from afar that sends you soaring. (Maybe literally! You could be going on a distant voyage this month.) The New Moon on the 23rd clarifies the direction and intent of a group project. This could also be a creative endeavor linked to technology and to potentially connect many people together in some kind of network.

nov2-copy

SCORPIO: Very powerful overtones are present this month and there can be some very dynamic transitions. The 2nd, 10th, 17th and 20th all have a rather volatile quality to them. Turning points are indicated and the outcome has a lot to do with your headspace. Maintaining to hard a line can prevent you from valuable opportunities, so attempt to keep an open mindset. There can be financial rewards, either though a spouse, bank, investment, or some other form of outside income. Agreements and negotiations made during the Full Moon on the 9th will be highly favorable. The 18th and 30th feature additional details. A really incredible professional opportunity is on queue during the last week of July. You star is rising swiftly from this month into next. Prepare for action on the 26th. Big changes are brewing.

dec2-copy

It’s possible you have been vetted by a bank or investor and negotiations conclude around this time. This would equally apply to your salary or income in any regard. A sweet Venus influence presides over your partnerships and the 18th and 30th are both exquisite for connecting with someone new or enhancing your ongoing partnership.

You may be preparing to travel or study, with more news next month!

jan2-copy

CAPRICORN: Partnerships continue to be highlighted, but be wary of contentious vibes early in the month. Something has to change, and that something might need to be you or your attitude. Is it really so scary to let someone in just a little? Work and productivity are enhanced by the presence of Venus this month and you may be in the midst of an exciting creative collaboration or artistically stimulating project or assignment. This work is paving the way to the really awesome opportunities you’ll get professionally this Fall, especially around the 18th. A Full Moon in your sign on the 9th signals transformation and self awareness will be especially potent themes for you this month. You can choose to exert your power productively by remaining alert to your intuition and choosing your words carefully. There can be some conflict energy with rivals this month and taking the high road should be your priority.

feb2-copy

The 18th and 30th are really spectacular for reaching out into new territory. Tending the balance between work and personal life will be the hardest work you do, and confrontations on the 2nd and 10th will attest to private matters that require resolution.

The 7th, 14th, 19th and 24th are all favorable for dates and social activities with someone you would seek to connect more deeply with. You may even meet someone unexpectedly in the course of your daily activities, so get out there!

march2-copy

STARGAZER FORECAST AUGUST 2015

STARGAZER FORECAST AUGUST 2015

Check out the new STARGAZER video blog on YouTube, where I discuss the upcoming two weeks aspects with my friend Fiord: https://youtu.be/xUSVNLauqJ0

August packs a bit of a punch, and while there will be some positive results and returns, especially for innovative endeavors begun last Spring, our long range goals and especially love or financial arrangements can be visited by testing influences at this time. Much of this has to do with Venus retrograde, not a completely infrequent occurrence, but a challenging one for matters of the heart and forming partnerships for either business or pleasure. The retro phase allows for some pulse enhancing double and triple takes – we may get another chance on a love relationship that slipped through our fingers – and fantastic connections between Venus to Jupiter (Aug. 4 + October 25th), Uranus (Aug. 19 + September 24) as well as really passionate contacts with Mars (September 1 + November 1st) offer some really vibrant exchanges. Meanwhile the Saturn square (exact on Aug. 5 + October 10th) can signal delays or challenges within a partnership. It may also just represent a period of reappraisal, where we don’t quite know where we stand with another or even in relation to our own feelings! It’s acceptable to step back, evaluate and see what is and what is not working in our relationships. What is good to know is that relationships that survive this critical period were really meant to last. Venus resumes direct motion on September 6th.

In the context of a meaningful love connection, neither Venus retrograde or the Venus – Saturn square will be enough to derail a relationship if it is fundamentally good, but may provide obstacles in the form of separations or obligations that somehow keep a partnership from really coming together during this period. When Venus and Saturn engage, we really begin to question whether the relationship is worth moving forward with, does a relationship have what it takes to endure through the next phase of our development? This is a question we may not be able to answer until October, as the final aspect occurs October 10th, at precisely the same time as the end of the Venus retrograde shadow phase. By then Saturn is in Sagittarius and we are more tuned into our new, long range objectives. Through that time we are restructuring and determining the appropriateness and durability of our relationships, and building a new life with new ingredients in order to accommodate them.

The period from 2nd through the 7th is very pivotal, as Saturn resumes direct motion, then is promptly squared by Jupiter, Venus and Mercury all in Leo. Woah! Meanwhile, Venus conjunct Jupiter and Mercury conjunct Jupiter all insist upon a lighthearted and open ambience for exchange. Saturn in Scorpio forces us to dig deep and ensure alliances and commitments are meaningful and will allow us to transcend what we can do individually through working together. These aspects can represent poignant awareness of limitations and what we might need to release, either from within our emotional selves or through our relationships. Scorpio can have a tendency to self protective and defensive behavior when the vulnerable deeper feelings are activated, but really what Saturn is teaching and pushing us towards is revealing those emotions in order to create the profound level of trust required in our most intimate alliances.

While quite challenging, this is actually a very instructive period, if we stay attuned to the deeper message. School of hard knocks life lessons via Saturn in Scorpio can be tough, but these square aspects, and this whole first week of August will illuminate (possibly through confrontational situations or bittersweet feelings connected to a potential separation) the responsibility we must accept to take the next significant step towards maturity, security and a lasting resolution to the message of Saturn in Scorpio. Where it lies in your chart is what needs working on, and at least, with Saturn direct that work can begin now with the realizations that will likely come to light during the first week of the month. Acknowledging our personal limitations or obstacles may feel quite prickly, and the circumstances we contend with may feel quite obstinate, but are very valuable in pointing us not only towards what we really desire, but what needs to be resolved to get there. Another note, if you are in contract or other personal – professional negotiations that need to be resolved, this month (Venus retro not withstanding) is superior to September or October, which sees a Mercury retrograde phase through Libra.

Jupiter enters Virgo on the 11th, providing a real shift in orientation which will emphasize the practical and methodical. New value will be placed on efficiency and coming up with strategies for the implementation of practices that enhance productivity and wellness. Jupiter’s expansive influence is somewhat mitigated by the narrow focus of Virgo, but from an earth sign, and coupled with the influence of Saturn in direct motion, there is the positive indication of manifesting in the material realm and seeing tangible results for our output, which has primarily been theoretical through the heavy fire sign emphasis that has predominated this year. This is a positive period in which to put our thoughts into practice, with a brilliant culmination on the 26th as the Sun and Jupiter conjunct at 3 degrees of Virgo, stimulating a year long opportunity for expansion though conscientious and meticulous attention to detail and results oriented activities.

ARIES: Fun, creativity and self expression continue to be major topics, with an exciting new chapter beginning on the 14th during the Leo New Moon. Uranus from your sign links up to the Sun and Moon and there is a great deal of excitement experienced through a love union. Financial difficulties will be overcome early in the month to set the stage for developments. The 3rd – 6th sees you stuck with monetary concerns that might keep you from engaging in desires of your heart. Incredible developments on the 15th and 19th in particular will bring back your passion and reinvigorate your trust that things will work out. Venus travels backwards in the sky to reconnect with Mars at the very end of the month, and a love relationship comes to complete culmination at this time brilliantly. You may have never known this intensity of passion! It is a rare and beautiful moment, enjoy every minute of it. A new job or health practice put in place on the 27th will be very successful!

TAURUS: Residential matters have been a topic all year, and with Jupiter about to leave this area (August 12th) you can use up your last few weeks of good luck to make a move or improvement you’ve been considering. With Venus retrograde in this area simultaneously, you may not see all the pieces fall into place until September. The Leo New Moon on the 14th is nonetheless a spectacular time to set intentions, and a connection to Uranus can bring an unanticipated, but welcome development. The 13th – 19th is a very favorable period to attend to domestic matters. Contentious vibrations over the first week of the month feature a feud with a spouse or business partner. Around the 8th matters can be reconciled to the advantage of all parties involved. Jupiter enters the area of children, self expression, and True Romance on the 12th. This offers an exceptional period for creative self discovery, love and pleasure over the coming year.

GEMINI: Venus retrograde in the house of writing, day to day life and social activities underscores a revisiting of sorts – either friends from the past come back into frame at this time or you are editing a writing project. Sun (through August 24th) and Mars (August 9th – September 25th) stimulate you to socialize and work towards the completion of your project. A New Moon on the 14th adds dimensionality and enthusiasm for this undertaking. Jupiter says farewell to this area on the 12th, suggesting attention will be turning to the domestic and residential concerns, with expansive developments on the queue over the coming year in your most personal life. A Full Moon in Pisces at the end of the month can be wonderful for realizing a cherished professional objective. Creativity and imagination play a role.

CANCER: The pressure comes off when Mars leaves your sign on the 8th, shifting the energy back on to earnings and professional goals. The 2nd, 7th, 13th, 15th and 19th are all advantageous for negotiations, interviews or preparing a budget. A sense of restriction is present over the first few days of the month. If you have a child, for example, you may realize expenses associated with their educational costs or care are going to have a more profound effect on your finances than anticipated. Otherwise a sacrifice in relation to a recreational or pleasure pursuit may have to be abandoned to make ends meet in this phase. Social life and day to day existence (these are the people in your neighborhood) get a very positive stimulation when Jupiter moves into Virgo on the 12th, joining Mercury. This is an area that comes into focus over the upcoming period. Communication and learning are enhanced. Social life will be vibrant and a continuing ed class can bring some meaningful introductions. A Full Moon on the 29th can see you setting off for a holiday adventure. This likely connects back to plans you made back in February. Bon Voyage!

LEO: The New Moon in your sign on the 14th connects to electrical Uranus, you feel vibrant and stimulated to take on a new adventure. Jupiter leaves your sign on the 12th, though Mars comes in for the first time in two years on the 9th, arousing passionate conviction and a desire for self expression. Challenges to self expression or expression of affection during the first week give way to brilliant opportunities later in the month – the period from the 13th to 19th is really divine for romantic and creative undertakings. Domestic matters can be successfully resolved on the 6th, though the 21st seems to present a final challenge. Finances are a topic of discussion from the 8th, and negotiations very successful on the 15th. You can easily win someone over to your cause at this time. Be wary of a risky financial venture on the 31st. A Full Moon in Pisces augments really beautiful developments in an intimate relationship on the 29th, a wave of ecstasy that carries you right through the end of the month and into September.

VIRGO: Mars joins the Sun, Mercury and Venus in your house of ethereality, closure and privacy, and more than ever it’s time to tune out the needs of others and focus on your rest, reflection and personal restoration. The New Moon on the 14th is the perfect time to feed your soul. Work from the inside out, detox and remove impurities by doing a holistic body cleanse, and the emotions you need to let go of will follow, and from there you feel truly rejuvenated. A good massage, even a therapist (if you need some mental flossing) can work wonders. It’s essential you clear the decks, as Jupiter is going to be checking into Casa Virgo on the11th for a full one year stay-cation. With all those other planets currently in Leo all en route your way, and the North Node set to make an appearance in October, it’s going to be all hands on deck this Fall. For now, meditate… drift away… think about what you will do with a cosmic carte blanche being handed to you. Really, think about it! You have the possibility in the upcoming phase to build up exactly the life you want, so think about what it looks like and imagine it in picture perfect detail. The Sun conjunct Jupiter in your sign on the 27th is the perfect moment to put it all in motion. Double whammy luck if your birthday is on or close to this date! The Full Moon in Pisces on the 29th can bring closure or a brilliant culmination in a partnership. Tap into your heart’s desire.

LIBRA: It’s a more reflective month as Venus retrogrades in Leo, and Mercury (August 8th) the Jupiter (August 12th) move into your house of endings, secrecy and private affairs. Action is taking place behind the scenes, however a strong social urge will be experienced while Mars transits Leo, suggesting a partner is urging you to be out and about. A New Moon on the 14th signals a wonderful occasion and new friends and alliances are coming into your life. The 13th, 15th and 19th are exceptional for cultivating relationships of all varieties. Financial considerations may present an issue on the 4th, 5th or 21st. Anticipate shortcomings around these dates. The 6th is positive for linking your professional goals to a source of income. It may be a hard working phase, but you’ll see phenomenal results in November for the time you put in now. A project comes to a beautiful conclusion on the 29th. This connects back to visionary impulse you put into motion back in late January – February. Nice work!

SCORPIO: You have the ability to shed your armor this month as you begin to realize and recognize the new person you have become and seek to reveal this person to the outer world. The New Moon in Leo on the 14th breaths fresh life into your enterprise. A shift at this time emphasizes a changing tide, and the evolution of an idea or an objective into a highly successful endeavor. Coupled with the transit of Mars through Leo beginning August 9th, you still have a hard core advantage against your competitors. The 7th, 13th, 15th, and 19th are all incredibly dynamic. This is a hard working phase to say the least, though a Virgo emphasis as Mercury (August 8th) and Jupiter (August 12th) enter the sign, offering a harmonious social ambience. You are working among meticulous and thoughtful people who share your vision in this phase. This will also manifest as more opportunities to meet and socialize with wonderful events and occasions in store over the coming weeks. The Full Moon in Pisces on the 29th brings a key love relationship or creative endeavor into the frame beautifully. A serendipity of True Love and connection to destiny is possible. This will tie back into events and intuition that may have been aroused in the late January – February period.

SAGITTARIUS: A travel, publishing, media or educational goal can come into reach this month as a New Moon in Leo on the 14th opens up an opportunity for a positive new beginning. Venus (retrograde) continues to influence this area through the beginning of October and Mars from August 9th bring considerable energy and good fortune to your endeavors. Travel and reaching people at a distance may feature. The 2nd, 7th, 13th, 15th and 19th are all favorable for pursuing personal and creative goals. The first week of the month features some obstacles or a hurdle or two that must be crossed. Easy does it, a positive attitude goes a long way to avert a challenge or two. Jupiter will decamp for Virgo on the 12th, and very big developments will begin to unfold for you professionally over the coming months and well into next year. Big news on the 27th points to these exciting opportunities in store. Make a bold statement of initiative for the future. A Full Moon in Pisces on the 29th signals a change occurring in your residence, and you may be making a decision that has weighed on you over the last six months.

CAPRICORN: You might hit a financial snag in the early part of the month as Venus and Jupiter square off with Saturn. Much better news comes in during the New Moon in Leo on the 14th, which may reveal a new source of outside revenue. You can benefit from the good fortune of a spouse of business partner in this phase, or an investment you made can be profitable for you at this time. Matters within a partnership that may have had adversarial overtones last month can be resolved very positively around the 6th. This is a wonderful time for reaching agreements related to business or within a committed partnership. Mars in Leo and the house of intimacy and shared resources suggests you are working hard for it in this phase. Passion and conviction, particularly within a relationship, are aroused.The 7th and 15th are also remarkable for negotiating shared profits and revenue or making agreements, merging forces with another’s resources, with a real advantage on the 15th to go after what you want. On the 27th – you are likely to get it. A behind the scenes discussion about your profession on the 26th brings favorable input for your work. Positive aspects affecting your residential life come in on the 2nd, 13th and 19th. These are appropriate times to attend to to upgrades in the home. A Full Moon in Pisces on the 29th connects to Neptune, stimulating a very romantic and alluring ambience. It will be very enjoyable to attend a social event or go on a date at this time. Jupiter from Virgo after the 11th is amazing for expanding your influence. You feel at ease with yourself over the coming year.

AQUARIUS: A vexing influence that challenges the formation of a relationship stems from professional commitments at the onset of the month. This may tie back to endemic situations you confronted over the last two years, though a real breakthrough is possible now as Saturn resumes direct motion on the 2nd. The squares of Jupiter (August 3rd,) Venus (August 5th,) and Mercury (August 6th) to Saturn reveal the details. Better professional transits come in when Mercury in Virgo harmonizes on the 26th. A conjunction of Sun to Jupiter on the 27th can see a really amazing (and lucrative) job offer or assignment come your way. Travel, media and academic pursuits play a role. Transits of the Sun and Mercury, then Mars (August 9th – September 25th) continue to emphasize the zone of relating and partnerships. Venus retrograde though this area (from July 25th) may see a partner leave, if only temporarily, or for feelings and commitments to be reappraised over the coming weeks. A Leo New Moon on the 14th sees a shift in circumstances regarding commitments and relationships. A conjunction to retrograde Venus may indicate a reemerging connection with someone from the past, though it could equally be a bit of a love ’em and leave ’em – you’ll roll with circumstances since Uranus plays a very supportive role here, you are likely delighted at the results of what occurs regardless of the outcome. Jupiter leaves this area on the 11th, moving into Virgo and your 8th house of intimacy, transformation and shared resources – an area that is going to see tremendous revitalization over the coming months and heralding a stunning metamorphosis.

PISCES: A very significant change occurs this month when Jupiter enters Virgo and the area of committed relationships. Some of the emphasis comes off of the work and professional arena to bring a focus towards very positive developments set to occur within your partnerships. There is a massive advantage now to teaming up with another (this affects one on one relationships pretty explicitly,) and although it has implications within committed romantic associations, it also affects business partners or a team enterprise. You can find people now who fill the yang to your yin and fill in the spaces in terms of expertise and energy where you may be lacking to create a far more complete whole when you work together than separately. From Virgo, there is a suggestion that perhaps this person is a bit more detail oriented than you, and it’s likely you provide the vision and inspiration while your partner handles the more nitty gritty operational aspects. A meeting or encounter on the 27th sets a compelling new cycle into motion. A New Moon on the 14th bodes well for a new work assignment that proves both lucrative and exciting. Mars in Leo from the 9th suggests a hard working phase, but lots of progress if you stick with it. The professional rewards and advancement you desire for the work you are doing now comes in about a year, when Mars and Saturn conjunct in your house of career, status and public recognition. In the grand scheme of things, this is nothing, when you consider how significant the potential for long range success for your enterprise actually is in this phase. Baby steps, remember? Put an endeavor into motion on the 6th. A Full Moon in your sign on the 29th brings emotional and personal satisfaction for all that you have managed to achieve this Summer. Good work! An intimate celebration is in order.
