FULL MOON IN VIRGO – MAKING PROGRESS

This is a week that advances several of the storylines that began in January, as well as very significant events that were triggered mid October (Mercury conjunct Jupiter) and mid November (Venus conjunct Jupiter). The developments that occur are not particularly overt nor make a lot of noise, but have deep emotional resonance that stimulates a very meaningful appraisal of how far the transit of Jupiter in Scorpio has gone to transform one’s personal relationship with intensity, passion and power. Growth through regeneration is possible, as is connecting to a sacred or spiritual ideal. The Virgo Full Moon will weigh in on that Thursday, but so long as you have not misled yourself or others, there is the potential for an outpouring of genuine beauty and idealism.

This is an especially potent introspection to have right now, with Jupiter retrograding in two weeks time, a certain submergence is called for over the coming months, potentially tied to the personal discoveries made this week. The next 14 days are still very vital and active for the emotional realm, so make the best of these aspects while you can make some progress. After that, Aries takes the reigns and the season of fire begins. Venus harmonizes both Pluto and Jupiter this week, indicating positive advancements in love and financial matters, but also for self worth and the creation of harmony. Venus – Pluto seeks connections that run deep and have a soul merger quality to them. Jupiter amplifies them and generates an ambience of pleasure and generosity.

Positive results from maneuvers and choices put forth in regard to personal transformation, again, in mid November (Jupiter) and early January (Pluto) begin to bear enticing fruit. It appears relinquishing a negative circumstance or otherwise taking hold of your personal power is an important theme. Continuity for these efforts are quite evident in this phase. Mercury has caught up to Venus and makes mutual aspects. It is easy to tune into awareness of exactly what is happening and why, at least instinctively. Mercury from Pisces “get’s it” without necessarily having the words to express it. Intuition is strong and trusting your feelings now is a valid expression of the absolute meaning of these transits.

The Virgo Full Moon on Thursday could provide a bit more of a challenge, as it lies in pretty precise opposition to Neptune, which shines a big bright light on any deception or illusions you may be naively or subconsciously rooted to. This can be a very vulnerable period: sometimes with Neptune you can just keep going and going on the expectation all is ok, and suddenly this Full Moon comes along and reveals not every thing is hunky dory in funky town. This doesn’t have to be the outcome, it depends on how close your vision of your life and the people in it are actually are aligned with reality, in which case this could be a genuinely magical moment.

If disappointment proves to be a factor, this is a good time to take a real good look at where delusion stems from and find a way to release it once and for all. More than likely it comes from within – the people, places and things that you have pinned your hopes on are not to be blamed – just released if they are only offering the pervasive uncertainty Neptune thrives on. A stable link to Saturn throws a lifeline, demonstrating a more productive avenue towards which to direct energy. Late Friday into early Saturday Moon makes a conjunction to Chiron, and a healing process can unfold.

EXTENDED FORECAST ON PATREON ->

STARSCOPES:

april2-copy ARIES March 20 – April 19
Your instincts point you in the right direction towards your goals and professional pursuits. Especially if you have experienced some growing pains here recently, relief comes in the form of hammering out a plan of action. Agreements and commitments make this possible. The Full Moon Thursday is a turning point as well, though you may realize you have to make concessions of a highly personal nature to develop the productivity you require at work. Burning the candle at both ends will no longer do.

may2-copy TAURUS April 20 – May 20
Friends and lovers may not see eye to eye in this phase, though someone you care for deeply could also be an inspiration to pursue a creative dream. People who have dissipating influences on you will need to be shown the door. Make room for love and friendships that provide you with real value, that value being acceptance for who you are without question. New connections form as you clarify your desires. A signal early Wednesday AM provides a strong reminder of what needs to get sorted in your domestic sector.

june2-copy GEMINI May 21 – June 20
Beautiful but elusive and intangible dreams are fomenting in your professional life. You could be achieving a cherished wish right now, or realizing a promise or commitment was a lot of hot air. The Full Moon impacts your personal life, and relocation to take a job offer could be a major factor this week as well. Some action is taking place behind the scenes, impacting financial matters. A decision you made early in the year is paying off now. Very good news and developments are on queue for your career Friday.

july2-copy CANCER June 21 – July 22
A great deal of passion and inspiration is present in your relationships right now, though the atmosphere may seem somewhat subdued, much transpires in the deepest realms of the emotions. Someone at a distance could feature largely in your story, though near or far you likely feel completely smitten. Check into financial matters early Wednesday, you get a clue or hot tip to follow that will align you with good fortune. Communicate your hearts desire over the Full Moon on Thursday.

aug2-copy LEO July 23 – August 22
The Moon from your sign early in the week stimulates you towards a personal initiative. Wednesday morning is especially advantageous for stating your aims. The atmosphere is otherwise a bit beguiling for you, as so much is percolating in your subconscious. This stimulates your intuition and flights of fancy. Follow a dream, but make sure the people making the offers are legit. A financial matter culminates on Thursday, this is a make it or break it moment for a stream of income.

sep2-copy VIRGO August 23 – September 22
There is an (imaginary) ocean that gulfs between you and your beloved, the two of you sending waves of emotion back and forth. The Full Moon Thursday is your chance to send forth a message, declaring your intentions, expectations and deepest longings. This comes back to you as a tidal force in two weeks time, during the New Moon in Pisces. What returns has the potential to completely set you adrift or to make those dreams come true. The distinction lies in keeping the wavelengths you send out crystal clear.

oct2-copy LIBRA September 23 – October 23
This is a period of recuperation for you, you require a more harmonious balance between your inner psyche and outer productivity. This is a matter that will consume your attention over the next two weeks, but has a positive connotation for your finances and can even lead to a new job and lifestyle by the middle of next month. It’s time to realize the illusion you can carry out your objectives without taking better care of your physical entity needs to be sacrificed. In it’s place, the realization of a significant, and glamorous promotion.

nov2-copy SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
You can get away with wearing your heart on your sleeve for once, your words register loud and clear over the coming weeks. For some this will implicate a personal project, for others a love relationship will be culminating in delicious moments of revelation. In one way or another, your heart’s desires are being fulfilled. Clarify your message on Thursday, as something quite lovely emerges in two weeks time that mirrors the desires you express during this pivotal Full Moon.

dec2-copy SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21
A strong pull between your personal commitments and your professional aspirations could be present this week, and some inner navigation could be required to extinguish some tricky dynamics with others, especially family members. Financial choices you made earlier this year begin to pay off, and you have a sixth sense about where to pursue leads that could have lucrative outcomes. You are reminded of a destination you would seek mid week, follow that inner compass.

jan2-copy CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
Your perception is wide open, and inspiration is flowing briskly. A creative project or the articulation or realization of your desires in a partnership could be very compelling this week. Something you set into motion earlier this year is finally gaining in momentum for you, and someone from afar, or an educational matter (perhaps both) have a deep influence on the developments you experience, especially on Thursday. Intimacy or a shared financial matter advances midweek. A choice you made late January is paying off.

feb2-copy AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Professional and financial matters are very well aspected this week, with positive news in frame, especially Wednesday and Friday. To make the most of this mostly harmonious ambience, you have to check your facts and figures, and make sure everyone who you commit to or with can deliver on those promises. It’s an enticing atmosphere, but also slippery and elusive. Don’t get caught out. A compromise or agreement of sorts is required of you Thursday.

march2-copy PISCES February 19 – March 20
It’s a very momentous week for Pisces, and so much is store for you personally and in regard to a significant relationship. Listen carefully on Thursday for a significant message, in two weeks time it will be your turn to step up to the plate and declare your intentions. If you are unsatisfied with what’s on offer, it might be time to cut the cord, though in an ambience as pervasively elusive as this one, you might do well to let feelings settle in for a few days time before making a crucial decision. Again, in two weeks you’ll be at a much greater advantage and more connected to your own desires.

july2-copy  CANCER June 21 – July 22
Plan your dream vacation this week. Consider what environment appeals to your senses and where you would feel amazing if you woke up there in the morning. Natural features like water, mountains, forest or the desert speak volumes to where your heart seeks to wander. Your parter is likely to get right on board for this one.

aug2-copy  LEO July 23 – August 22
A partnership reaches a pinnacle midweek. Surrender completely to love and give yourself entirely to a romantic gesture. Merging your energy with another is vitalizing at this point. There are tricky dynamics at work with friends towards the end of the week. Navigate carefully. Feathers get ruffled.

sep2-copy  VIRGO August 23 – September 22
Key relationships are front and center of your attention this week, with a very special development midweek. Convey your hearts’ desire to the one you love. You can make a meaningful commitment now. The end of the week gets a bit more challenging, especially in regard to professional outcomes. Consider your options.

oct2-copy  LIBRA September 23 – October 23
Use the next few weeks to examine how you take care of yourself, and how this reflects how you appreciate yourself. Productivity and creativity are running high. Where do you see yourself at the end of the year? Time to gear up for those outcomes. The projects and alliances you cultivate now have a huge bearing on these, so chose carefully.

nov2-copy  SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
Self expression is vitalizing and provides you with the courage to show your heart. Demonstrate your ideal midweek. A commitment you make in love will stand the tests of time. Financial issues will likely consume your attention at the end of the week. Check facts and figures thoroughly.

dec2-copy  SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

A partnership goes through some growing pains towards the end of the week.

jan2-copy  CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
Curiosity is your best ally this week, Cap. Seek out the people and places that can satisfy and assist you in developing your interests and ideas. A conversation mid week paves the way for incredible outcomes which are just around the corner. Easy does it, especially with work, health diet and productivity at the end of the week.

feb2-copy  AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
The financial picture looks peachy and inspiration mid week could turn a creative venture into some real value for you moving forward. Creative matters and children provide some issues towards the end of the week. Evaluate what matters to you most and you will wind up on top despite the outcome.

march2-copy  PISCES February 19 – March 20
So much energy is generating for Pisces right now, the inspiration you currently feel could almost be overwhelming. Mid week provides assurance you can and should follow your hearts desires, whatever those might be. An significant conversation, perhaps with a significant other determines much of the outlook for the upcoming weeks. Domestic matters take a priority towards the end of the week.

Stargazer Weekly Horoscopes 9/24 – 9/30

 
WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:
 
ARIES: You may be experiencing some uncomfortable changes at work this week, and unanticipated developments seem to be taking you off your A game. Professionally you stand to gain enormously if you keep your eye on the destination. Reset your intentions on Thursday night and tune into your inner resolve to make the most of opportunities up ahead. A tricky matter in a relationship may potentially be resolved now, and the lines of communication are open after Friday. Excitement about this union generates energy and enthusiasm. Issues can be easily articulated now and agreements made. Steer clear of office flirtations at the end of the week, this one has hot mess written all over it.
 
TAURUS: A romantic relationship gets bombarded this week, you could be over the moon in love, but mixed signals keep appearing that could call into question the sanctity of your union. Cues are as subtle as they are beguiling. Definitely steer clear of drugs and alcohol while in the companionship of a lover, this will only intensify the unusual and ambiguous atmosphere this week. A situation at work that has been percolating since last December finally gets it’s day of reckoning. A green light to move forward Thursday is met with the utmost of excitement. Tensions behind the scenes or with a financial matter could escalate. Look into this before it gets away from you.
 
GEMINI: A domestic matter continues to provide a contentious diversion from your professional aspirations. Family members or flatmates could be creating difficulty at your residence, or beguiling circumstances seem to stand in the way of the attainment of what you would seek. A joint financial matter seems to require attention mid week. A friend becomes a lover after months of spicy flirtation winding back to last December. Ready to take the plunge? After Friday you find it easier to put your feelings into words. An exciting phase in your love life is picking up. Pleasure through sharing interests over the coming weeks is assured.
 
CANCER: If you are finding it difficult to articulate your viewpoint, blame the stars. Obtuse and hard to read energies are in full force and you do well to resign yourself to only to the most important work and communication you absolutely must deal with. On a creative level you could be stimulated and painting, poetry or journalling could provide constructive outlets through which you can express yourself now. A very exciting development either at home or professionally could see you on the move. This one has been percolating since last December, with sudden news on Thursday. A change of location may be required to take a promotion. Partnerships get back on track after a necessary adjustment midweek.
 
LEO: Financial matters continue to bewilder, applying the brakes early in the week on expenditure will be required. Creative energy seems to be stilted by this situation, which will prompt you to resolution in the early part of the week. From there work and health issues take a prominent role, with a long awaited development, potentially a promotion finally comes through. A desire to maintain your wellness is also activated, and you have better chances of maintaining a new regiment related to diet or exercise now. Spontaneous road trip with a friend? Why not? Your bank account will remind you on Friday.
 
VIRGO: Persistent misunderstandings with a partner and a complex atmosphere prevail this week, stirring a sense of romantic longing, although equally repulsion within you. Your beloved may feel just out of reach while remaining every minute on your mind. Love is drug, as they say. If you are willing to bite the bullet and make amends on Thursday, passion can quickly be rekindled. You have a much better idea of what you want now then you did in April and a separation so you could reflect on your innermost desires may have been exactly what the doctor ordered to reach this determination. Into next week this fire grows and grows. Check in with your financial flows from Friday. You could get news of a short term assignment that could pad your pocket book.
 
LIBRA: Much is going on behind the scenes for you, and your intuition and inspiration run equally deep, exposing glorious and hidden aspects of your psyche. Revealing moments throughout the week could offer you a glimpse into your own motivations. Something you seek, but also seem to be hiding from comes into question. A relational matter that has been percolating since last December could erupt this week in a blaze of glory. Can the freedom you desire be experienced through a committed one on one relationship? A balancing act has hopefully been perfected. This person seems to be seeking an answer: in or out? Mercury in your sign from Friday puts the ball in your court. Don’t tell it how it is, but how you want for it to be, Libra.
 
SCORPIO: There is a tight financial focus in the early part of the week off set only by the pronounced distraction you feel in your love relationship. Complicated energies are stimulated and an illusive ambience makes it heard to pin down the object of your affection. The chemistry you share with this person has intoxicating overtones, and it’s worth it to recognize that cloaking this affair in mystery (and distance) is a large part of the appeal it holds for you. The freedom you seek in your work life is possible now, get ready to take a big leap Thursday. Pluto direct signals your power is being returned to you, examine how far you have come since April, you will likely see a huge chunk of your life has concluded. Just as well the next few weeks implore you to go within, clear out your inner space and prepare for Jupiters’ transit of your sign upcoming…
 
SAGITTARIUS: While you stand to gain so much professionally in this period, a strange matter involving your residence seems to be complicating matters for you, making it difficult to make the most of what is being offered you in this phase. A big shift in a financial matter occurs on Thursday and an agreement that has been encased in nothing less than an iceberg cracks open and finally gives way to something you have been seeking for many moons. Your agenda is different now that what it was in April, and you will see what has come to pass made waiting worthwhile. Social dynamics are exciting, especially from the end of the week, and a love affair that has been on and off could finally come together, quite unexpectedly.
 
CAPRICORN: It’s hard to keep your wits about you this week, distractions are abundant and you find it difficult to be incredibly persuasive or clearly articulate your position right now. From Thursday, as Pluto moves direct in your sign, you will find your resolve is strengthening and that your aspirations are more within your reach than you had previously realized. You have relinquished something since last April, perhaps unwillingly, and a certain “loss of innocence” has given you a new grit and toughness you can now use in the interest of your goals. Sun in Libra reminds you to play fair, especially in matters pertaining to career. An eruption of energy at the end of the week stimulates a bolt of lightning in your professional realm you can ride for the next several months to your destination, ready or not.
 
AQUARIUS: Niggling financial issues remain, making it a difficult time to nail down a budget, and your income and expenses are best cut down to the necessities for the time being until a clearer picture can be drawn. Socially this can be a very exciting time and you meet people who show you dimensions of the world you had not previously been aware of. You also do well to take a night class or get involved in an activity through which you can broaden your horizons and understanding. Travel could also be implied here, though even better opportunities await in the second half of October to make it happen. Now is a good time to research and plan a dream getaway. Inspiration triggered Thursday could send you on your way!
 
PISCES: Several dynamic alinements impact your relationships this week, (with way more in store next week, wow!) and where you have felt uncertain about a making a commitment or keeping a safe distance you may have run out excuses or time… Events on Friday, while beguiling can also produce a highly charged romanic ambience, perfect for making your feelings known if you are ready. This will prove a more difficult patch if you are pining over an unrequited love. Though if it is the case, maybe look into the root of any disappointment you feel and find ways to extricate yourself from the conditions that led you to fall for someone so clearly unavailable emotionally or otherwise. By doing so, you free yourself up for the highly erotic and enticing developments on queue next week. Cut any losses swiftly and get ready for the main event.

STARGAZER FORECAST MARCH 2016

SOUTH NODE CONJUNCT CHIRON: CRITICAL ENCOUNTERS

March is the big kahuna, featuring the kind of dynamics that can literally transform life in a split second. Eclipses season is en route for Spring, signaling that bright new beginnings as well as the necessary endings to make room for the new are likely to occur throughout March. The Pisces eclipse on the 8th will receive very positive energy from the Jupiter – Pluto trine. The Libra eclipse on the 23rd connects right into the topics and agenda of our new four month Sun – Mercury cycle, beginning at 3 Aries on the 23rd. If you thought 2016 was a snooze, you ain’t seen nothing yet! (As always, the closer eclipses fall to your personal chart factors, the bigger the personal impact in your life will be! **Do also look at your PROGRESSED CHART, these can be equally significant when contacted by the Eclipses as well!** Get your chart FOR FREE on astro.com to find out!)

Endings and culminations are prominent, look to where Pisces resides in your chart to see where they are most likely to occur. Numerous contacts from the South Node conjunct to Sun (Mar. 12th), Mercury (Mar. 17th) and Venus (Mar. 30th) will bring matters to conclusion where it is time to release a dream or fantasy. Pisces is the vessel of our most etherial and visionary desires. It associates with the transcendence of the ordinary, the mundane and the real. The South Node transits reveal what we have to let go of, and in the case we do not feel prepared to surrender our illusions, these can be quite painful episodes.

South Node is also conjunct Chiron for most of the month. It’s time to relinquish this constant need to self therapize our Chiron – Pisces issue. Chiron is a secondary ruler to Virgo, and with Chiron there is this pervasive need to fix things, which is rooted entirely in the concept that Something Is Wrong. Let that noise go for now. There can be an episode that triggers memories of pain, loss or the capacity to heal in this area, and what is revealed may even be connected to a past life. While it may feel this intuition is highly instructive, it is only through surrendering the desire to reconcile our “issue” (or someone else’s for that matter,) that we will genuinely be enabled to construct a healthy new narrative in which we release the subconscious patterning that is blocking our evolution, which right now is tied to Something Is Wrong.

Profound detoxification is possible now if we actually become aware that we are using alcohol, drugs or some other form of delusion inducing compulsion in order to compel truthfulness to Something Is Wrong. Drink a lot of water, cry as much as you need to and be willing to experience the process on a COMPLETELY PHYSICAL LEVEL. If you begin to overthink and attempt to rationalize your feelings (STOP NOW!) or are experiencing stress, try the breathing exercise from my last post, take a walk or get some exercise. The aspect peaks around the 24th (21 Pisces), just following the Libra Eclipse. Hardy, har, har!!! Love, the Universe.

In the way that the South Node Aries contacts last year demonstrated how we needed to cultivate new ways to assert ourselves (most demonstrably through cooperating with others,) South Node Pisces is urging us to emancipate ourselves from worn out delusions that are preventing us from embracing the future. If we are able to change our perception, this becomes a LIBERATING experience, where the stuff we are getting rid of allows us make room for new and vitalizing experiences up ahead. These are only painful transitions if we cling desperately to the past.

Screen Shot 2016-02-17 at 2.40.02 PM

The March 8th eclipse falls at 18’ 56” Pisces, and is really quite extraordinary. It signals a new dream is taking root, and taps into the incredible and transformative energy of the Jupiter – Pluto trine (exact on the 16th at 17 degrees Virgo – Capricorn). The earth element is highly supportive and assists in manifesting the visionary objective that initiates at this time. The combination of material reinforcement (Earth signs) with the spiritual and inspirational qualities (Pisces – Jupiter) produce a marvelous ambience for creative, artistic and visionary pursuits. There is a big boost for these activities and we can productively transform through them at this time. Saturn, meanwhile, challenges the enticing developments that occur, and it’s equally likely that duty, restriction or obligation weighs heavily on our ability to make the most of the otherwise lovely developments unfolding in this period. It is possible the awareness that emerges in relation to this conflict stimulates us to take action to resolve this issue.

March 6th features the second of three quincunx aspects between Jupiter and Uranus. The first occurred last November and the final one will be on August 13th. We are in the ongoing process of modifying and refining (Virgo!) a project or enterprise we began as far back as 2010, a period which seeded the initiation of a very innovative and expansive enterprise. Saturn also makes a second square to Jupiter on the 23rd. From the Stargazer 2016 overview: “It was in June of 2010 that Jupiter and Uranus linked up at 0’ Aries, signaling a very innovative project or expansive, revolutionary new way of thinking was initiated. Also in the mix was Saturn in opposition at 0’ Libra.” This whole configuration culminates in December, when Jupiter (Libra) opposes Uranus (Aries) with Saturn in Sagittarius harmonizing both.

It’s a safe bet what occurs (and even more so what we put into motion as a result of these influences,) is very significant in terms of how this whole thing turns out for us at the end of the year. In August we’ll be putting the finishing touches on the work we began in November, right now we are at an interesting mid-point, seeing how well things we set into motion are working out and correcting the course where we need to. The quincunx is a very experimental, alchemical aspect, and the energies are so completely incongruous to work with. Uranus dispatched Jupiter from the edge of Pisces – Aries, the point of complete dissolution into the point of absolute initiation. Jupiter has traveled, seen some sights, and learned some particularly difficult lessons while it navigated the Cardinal Cross. And now in Virgo, Jupiter needs to become malleable and studious, and take all it has learned and REFINE it into something useful. Aries – Uranus is the utmost of impulse energy, it is just so freaking volatile. Jupiter has the task of absorbing the heat and lightning bolts and pressure and transforming all that energy into something of value.

What that thing is has a lot to do with what you set out to achieve during the period in mid 2010 – 2011. Again, at that time you may have only sensed the revolutionary forces percolating beneath the surface. Brilliant, but unusual and innovative concepts may have started to present themselves, providing alternatives you would have never considered previously. As recently as last June, when Jupiter – Uranus were trine, we got a huge boost of initiative for this undertaking, some kind of signal to tell us we were going in the right direction. Again, listen to the message, take in the criticism and notes, whether they illicit from inside or outside, all of it is useful to you right now and will ultimately serve you to clarify what you are doing in order to reach that successful conclusion in December.

LIBRA ECLIPSE CHART:

libra eclipse

Our second eclipse falls on the 3 Aries – Libra axis, bringing to a conclusion a long range metamorphosis that extends as far back as October of 2013. The Aries eclipse September 27th of last year signaled the resolution of a long standing way of existence. As the Moon disappeared behind the shadow of the Earth that night, a dream or desire became submerged within the depths of the psyche. Do you remember this dream or what you were thinking of as the Moon disappeared? It’s quite possible that your desires becomes unleashed now, as the Sun illuminates it from Aries and brings light and life to the emotional treasure we buried last Fall. It’s possible too, a dramatic shift occurs now that enables us to reclaim that which we sought after 6 months ago. While this is a period of incredible emotional release, and possibly turbulence, the Eclipse itself is well aspected, with Mars in a very supportive position, providing energy to undertake what transpires, offering a helpful and philosophical attitude beaming over from generous Sagittarius. It’s possible a masculine figure is highly instrumental at this time. Mercury resides right next to the Sun, initiating the Sun – Mercury cycle that initiates the next 4 month cycle of daily activities and communication. (More below**) Door closes, window opens.

Mars is slowing in orbit, preparing for its’ retrograde period, beginning next month from April 18th – June 30th. Moving into Sagittarius on the 7th, the planet of action and energy stimulates an more outgoing ambience than we experienced from Scorpio, and although certain activities may be slowing some what, there is vitality and excitement available during this transit. Mars is on the heels of Saturn of course, activating us to take initiative on the long range goals Saturn has set for us. This work in progress continues through August, when Mars and Saturn meet, so imagine this part of your life is a bit like a construction zone, from Sag at least we can be optimistic! 🙂

Venus is highly active with contacts across the spectrum, the most notable of which is the conjunction to Neptune on the 20th. This highly romantically charged aspect taps our ability to see the very best in people, and stimulates a new cycle connected to a visionary pursuit or undertaking. Inspiration is strong, and feelings of love are transcendental. Also in the mix is a volatile Venus – Mars square on the 14th, which generates a lot of romantic and sexual friction if our needs our not being met on either level in our partnerships. The 25th may also prove quite challenging as Venus (Pisces) locks horns with the Jupiter (Virgo) – Saturn (Sagittarius) square that perfects two days earlier. There can be disconcerting and frustrating delays at this time impacting both finances and relationships. Hang in there! The following day Venus contacts Pluto harmoniously, allowing for transformative and passionate experiences to unfold.

**Here’s a little more on the Sun – Mercury cycle from my 2016 astrology e-book. Remember that what we begin now will go through a period of reappraisal and modification during the next Mercury retro phase. The project or activity that begins now is connected to wherever 3 Aries sits in your chart. Get your chart for free on astro.com!**

Sun conjunct Mercury March 23rd – 3’ Aries

This Mercury cycle initiates under the auspices of the Libra Eclipse (3’ 17” Libra) suggesting immensely emotional overtones to beginnings we make now, very likely connected to events and awareness stimulated over the prior 2 years and illuminated specifically last September during the Aries Eclipse 4’ 40”, (September 27th, 2015). A Lunar Eclipse, such as this, portends endings, so what begins now is likely an extension of the closure of a long standing pattern or way of life. One door closes, another opens, as they say. This beginning is given a positive beam of encouragement from Mars in trine from Sagittarius, perhaps we are about to embark on a big adventure and saying farewell to a way of life that has become quite outmoded to make this journey. Jupiter sends very positive vibrations (trine from Virgo) during the retrograde cycle* itself, so themes of expansion are amplified. The last two weeks of May feature positive developments implicating business agreements, travel, education and pursuits associated with the media or broadcasting. Jupiter will have recently turned direct, (May 10th) so it might be that an agreement, contract or negotiation at this time (though temporarily stalled during the upcoming RX cycle of Mercury,) finally comes through and sends us off in a big, big way.

Monthly Horoscopes by STARGAZER:

ARIES: There is a difference between secrets and lies, though it will be difficult to distinguish between the two this month. Everyone has something to hide it turns out, yourself included, so be careful what or to whom you may reveal yourself. Smoke and mirrors are endemic this month. Your psychic, intuitive realm is ripe with inspiration meanwhile, though you may find some of what percolates beneath the surface to be a bit disruptive at times. Trust the flow and see what illuminates. Your dreams may speak to what you must release. It’s a bit of a contradiction, all this latent energy keeping you behind the scenes while Mars comes galloping into Sagittarius on the 7th, activating a surge of energy you haven’t experienced since last Summer. From the 20th it gets easier to be yourself, and there are good prospects for you professionally, if you are willing to put in the work. Mid-month can signal advancement in your career. A project or goal you put into motion last Fall comes together brilliantly, boosting your status substantially. The Libra eclipse on the 23rd represents a final farewell in a committed relationship. This releases you to pursue a personal enterprise with renewed passion and commitment. A strong sense of self awareness guides you into the future.

TAURUS: It’s a big month for you socially, with a flurry of invitations and events coming your way. You are compelled to pick and choose your cohorts wisely, some relationships are fading away into the past tense though you equally stand to reconnecting with long forgotten friends. The March 8th eclipse signals a new dream, or new phase in the realization of a dream, will play a major role in your story for the next 6 months. Powerful creative forces and an opportunity extended from someone at a great distance aids you in making this come true. A highly romantic introduction may feature on the 20th, though you may find your desires are at odds with other long standing arrangements. A health or work situation that has proved difficult to resolve can begin to see signs of resolution from the 23rd. Time spent in relaxing environments or therapeutic settings provide good results. You begin to probe the depths of psyche and there can be insatiable desire to erotic adventures from the 7th. Just be advised that the commitments you make now, including those connected to shared finances, will go through a period of reappraisal in about 7 weeks. Vexing influences on the 14th may prevent you from exercising your better judgement. Cease and desist from making a critical decision at this time, especially in regard to a romantic encounter.

GEMINI: Professional developments are fourth coming, and you can really tap a well spring of inspiration for guidance regarding your life path and vocational pursuits. Visionary auspices influence you throughout the month, particularly around the time of the March 8th Eclipse. It is around this time you will may be offered a very significant position or promotion. What occurs at this time has a very beneficial effect on your living situation, and it is even possible relocation is required to take advantage of the opportunity you are offered. A partnership seems to hang in the balance on this one. Endings are also prominent, and associations and pathways conclude in this period. Far more fulfilling avenues open up when you release what is no longer serving you. The social sphere is activated from the 21st and you will have positive experiences with friends and colleagues over the upcoming month. You might decide to join a club, or grow your network in other ways. The Libra eclipse on the 23rd signals resolution in a creative or romantic matter. It’s possible children are involved, and if you have been trying for pregnancy or negotiating custody this can be a time in which you get closure within these matters.

CANCER: You feel at ease over the upcoming weeks as harmonious transits from Pisces illuminate feelings of genuine satisfaction. Enjoy a more leisurely pace for now, as much will be much coming up for you professionally after the 20th. A vacation or travel could prove highly restorative. A partner reveals the depths of their devotion mid month. The Libra eclipse on the 23rd signals changes affecting your home – professional axis. An ongoing circumstance related to your home or family can be resolved. A great deal of activity is transpiring in your work life as well, there could be a new assignment or rapid changes at the job. If you are seeking employment, it may take a few months for everything to resolve. The trajectory sees several changes over the upcoming months. Events or a negotiation that take place around the 23rd have a significant implication for your career. All the facts and figures come together at this time and you can take on a major initiative. Romance is enticing on the 20th and 26th. Make time to cultivate your love connection.

LEO: Feelings of vitality arouse your creative flow this month. This is especially useful if you have been feeling stuck in a rut with an artistic project or in a romantic relationship. A project you begin now will likely be retooled through the Summer, but this should not prevent you from getting out there and testing the waters. An active ambience in your personal life and within your profession keep you very busy and stimulated. There can be good earnings from work in this period. A sense of urgency to get out and see more of the world can preoccupy you as well. An eclipse in the area of secrets and deep commitment on the 8th foreshadows a new frontier in a close relationship. It is also possible that a legacy or inheritance is on it’s way to you. You benefit this month from a measure of privacy and introspection. Sensitivity is acute, especially over the first few weeks of March and peaking around the 20th. Everyone is getting rocked in the current eclipse cycle, so don’t take things too personally if your agenda isn’t met with immediate approval or assistance is not exactly forthcoming. The 6th holds a special challenge, an authority figure can stall your productivity or bog you down with an assignment that prevents you from pursuing your hearts desire. Bear with it for now, from the 23rd things get better. The 26th is also brilliant, you will feel extraordinary!

VIRGO: Potent forces are at work in your relationship sphere this month, with much going on within your key partnerships or within the life of a partner. The hands of destiny are working overtime to create fated occurrences and meetings. There is also a muddle here, as Neptune continues to be pervasive. It is easy to read far too much into the subtleties and nuances of a situation. You see in this person what you want to and not really what is. This is fine so long as you are not sugarcoating a situation that is actually in fact quite bad for you. Deception can be at play under the guise of Neptune, so be wary. Jupiter meanwhile protects you, and your interests, as you will see specifically around the time of the Eclipse. Beginnings, endings and escalations are possible around this time, with major developments occurring specifically around the 8th and during the Jupiter – Pluto trine, elevating your passion and signaling very positive prospects for commitment. The 20th is beyond romantic. You can connect with your true love. The home life is also emphasized from the 7th, and there can be conflicts with the residence or family members. If you have been trying for relocation, there may be some frustrating delays over the next few months. Hang in there, you’re good to go by the end of Summer.

LIBRA: Very potent, perhaps even life changing forces are at work this month. Reflect on events that occurred at this time two years ago, (as well as developments in late September,) and you will see not only how far you have come, but also what might remain to be addressed. The eclipse in your sign on the 23rd signals sweeping currents of change and a long sought after resolution. This conflict or issue is ready to be handled once and for all, it’s time to make your case and stick with it. Jupiter and Pluto offer immense reservoirs of emotional fortitude to embrace what ever might come up for you and someone close to home, such as a relative of neighbor, is going to offer assistance. A partnership may be the source of the pressure, if so, you can maneuver behind the scenes to get where you need to go next. There can be very confusing circumstances in the work or health life this month, though a creative endeavor can also shine in this phase, and you’ll flourish on the 20th in any artistic endeavors. The eclipse on the 8th portends dramatic, but likely welcome changes to your status as an employee or with those whom you employ. A health issue can also be effectively dealt with now.

SCORPIO: You become less self absorbed this month, as Mars leaves your sign and positive energy emphasizing love and creativity enhance your willingness to compromise or make amends. Leisure, recreation and self expression all feature now. An eclipse on the 8th signals a new chapter in a romantic alliance. If your heart is still free, a meeting that feels quite destined could transpire over the coming weeks. (Keep your eyes on the 20th and 27th for the most enticing developments.) Pay attention to clues you get during the South Node transits (above). Intuition is heightened and you may realize it is time to release circumstances, behaviors or individuals who are no longer helping you to grow. Mars from Sagittarius on the 7th – May 27th places the focus of your activities on earnings. What you put into motion in your financial realm should be treated as highly experimental, a work in progress that will manifest for you in October. You have been engaging unconventional practices in your work and productivity as well, and you may uncover interesting new prospects and avenues this month through technology, digital or web based projects. Events around the 23rd suggest a chapter of your life comes to a end now, though a new beginning, likely attached to a new work prospect is seeded in this phase.

SAGITTARIUS: Mars in your sign from the 7th offers incredible stamina, as the planet of energy and force begins a very rare, extended, 5 month transit of your sign. This is a positive period in which to pursue your agenda and go after what you want. There can be a pushy or abrasive quality during this transit, keep your temper in check! You don’t want to alienate the very people who can help you. The domestic and family life are playing a major role this month as well, and there can be a significant alteration in your residence. The eclipse on the 8th signals major changes, possibly connected to your profession. A promotion may require relocation, or perhaps you are able to upgrade your home as a result of higher salary or income. Your creative ingenuity plays a huge role in your success. You are cautious at the end of the month, as you carefully consider an opportunity. A heightened sense of responsibility has you weighing the pros and cons of a situation. Take your time, an even better option may present itself a few months down the road.

CAPRICORN: It could be a big moment for you professionally, Cap, as the Libra eclipse on the 23rd rocks your world, offering the breakthrough you have been working towards for months if not years. Jupiter – Pluto speaks right to your agenda and motivations, bolstering your ambitions and bringing a massive opportunity for success your way. Look to events you may have put into motion late October, early November. Culminating moments, a contract or fateful meeting on the 8th has life changing potential. The eclipse teams up with Jupiter and Pluto, sending ripples of incredible good fortune through your life. It seems you’ll be working primarily behind the scenes over the next few months, Mars comes to occupy a private and strategic part of your chart, where it remains through May. The course you take will see several changes and modifications, and you benefit from a more hands off approach while your ruler, Saturn, retrogrades from the 25th – August 13th. Slow and steady!

AQUARIUS: There can be good financial prospects this month, as the March 8th eclipse speaks to a wonderful opportunity. Meanwhile foggy and elusive Neptune suggests you take it nice and slowly with any agreements and make sure everything goes down on paper. There can be illusions in this cycle, and deception is also a possibility. Taken with a grain of salt and assuring that you will reality check your impulses to jump the shark on a financial endeavor, this is a highly creative phase and there are treasures within you that you can legitimately turn into profitable enterprises. You’ll find some of the pressure coming off in relation to your career, a far more social tone is present after the 6th. You may notice that it’s time to release bad habits associated with spending on the 12th, 17th or 30th, though it’s equally possible you discover a strategy you had tried to employ in relation to earnings and savings is not going to work out. As always, release the dead weight as quickly as possible in order to make space available for better opportunities.

PISCES: Potent forces are accumulating this month and remarkable and positive changes are due. The March 8th eclipse in your sign portends a significant shift in perspective, very likely in relation to a spouse or business alliance. Your social realm is very active and friends and networks will provide you with valuable opportunities for expansion, perhaps even leading to an introduction to someone with real partnership potential. You evolve quickly in this period, and self awareness is very strong. South Node contacts on the 12th, 17th and 30th will reveal what is done and dusted. It’s time to move on and away from the scenarios or individuals your intuition tells you are no longer supporting your growth. Professionally you are going to be quite active as you begin to negotiate the ladder of success. Be advised this is going to be a work in progress through August. Keep commitments flexible and negotiable. Some wiggle room to try out a few different avenues will help you considerably over the coming months.
