MARS IN SCORPIO – 5 OF CUPS

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

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

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

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

Namaste people.

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

WEEKLY STARSCOPES:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

STARGAZER FORECAST DECEMBER 2017

SATURN IN CAPRICORN – THE SANDS OF TIME

PREVIEW BOOK HERE

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Have a great month and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

DECEMBER STARSCOPES:

april2-copy   ARIES: March 20 – April 19

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

may2-copy  TAURUS: April 20 – May 20

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

june2-copy  GEMINI: May 21 – June 20

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

july2-copy  CANCER: June 21 – July 22

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

aug2-copy  LEO: July 23 – August 22

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

sep2-copy  VIRGO: August 23 – September 22

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

oct2-copy  LIBRA: September 23 – October 23

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

nov2-copy  SCORPIO: October 24 – November 21

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

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

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

jan2-copy  CAPRICORN: December 22 – January 19

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

feb2-copy  AQUARIUS: January 20 – February 18

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

march2-copy  PISCES: February 19 – March 20

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

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 APRIL 2016

APRIL / ARIES ~ MONTH OF FIRE ~ RESURGENCE AND PURIFICATION OF THE SPIRIT REALM

The turbulence and general dankness of March recedes swiftly into the rear view mirror, replaced with fresh and enlivening currents of energy and enthusiasm as numerous Aries transits marshal in new beginnings and a pioneering, indomitable spirit. April speaks to the liberating power of Uranus, signaling a spontaneous new order – get ready to jump! Paradoxically, the actual inertia of our activities slows as Mars winds down to the pace of treacle, as the retrograde cycle commences mid month, turning us about face, where we are asked to evaluate the actions we have taken over the last 8 weeks, if not the last two years. Time for redux.

ARIES NEW MOON

aries new moon 2016

The ARIES NEW MOON occurring on April 7th, sets a dynamic tone, though the entire period from the 5th – 9th is emphasized as Sun connects to the major influencers – Saturn, Pluto and Uranus throughout the week. A very lively connection to Uranus on the 9th indicates real breakthroughs are possible now. Pluto still creates a tense atmosphere, with a Sun – Pluto square on the 6th bringing a very pervasively challenging circumstance to a head, culminating in some really critical (and ongoing) power struggles. There is a distinct possibility that doing something completely new or unconventional can help us make the breakthrough where Pluto has been a repressive influence. Slow and steady Saturn weighs in on the 5th, reminding us we are moving in the right direction as we steadily manage to complete our to do list. The combined forces of the Sun, Moon and Uranus on the 7th creates a very dynamic surge of energy, and the ambience for the first two weeks of April will be utterly electrifying and impulsive. With such incredible vitality available, thresholds we have been unable to cross can now be obliterated. Saturn oversees and is very supportive from Sagittarius, so while the New Moon conjunct Uranus is a very boundary breaking influence on it’s own, initiatives we put into place now augment our long range efforts for structure and security, and ultimately satisfaction, an issue that became a prominent theme as Saturn went retrograde last month.

The Saturn retrograde period (March 25 – August 13) is a time in which we must evaluate the structures we have built since last November. Their durability and strength will be considered and where we have not succeeded in creating an enduring framework that offers the security we are cultivating (signified by the area where Saturn transits in your chart,) we will have to make modifications and renew our efforts to find stability from mid – August onward. The retrograde of Mars (April 18 – June 30) reinforces this, as both are traveling through Sagittarius. At the crux of this karmic journey is to overcome feelings of restriction and oppression in relation to our personal expression, feelings of joy, and the ability to obey our impulses. We have so much more to explore during this passage, although it’s safe to say we’ll gain the most valuable asset of this transit when we completely release ourselves from a perceived outcome and throw ourselves in and simply learn from the experience itself. Saturn demands we practice this, to integrate it into the daily, weekly and monthly routine. Cultivating a genuine sense of freedom, and unconditional and uninhibited feelings of faith in a positive outcome are where we want to wind up. It is only through the mastery of this skill that Saturn will release the restrictions upon the area being transited in your chart. Sagittarius is always focused on a destination, but realizes upon arrival there is still more territory in which to expand the quest, and embraces the next adventure. It is this nature of expansion itself (think Jupiter!) that reminds us not to fear constructing reality on the fly. Be fearless! Stimulation from Aries planets will push us to remarkable new heights.

Mars in Sagittarius meanwhile provides enormous enthusiasm and bravery to venture into that very unknown, although the upcoming retrograde phase may have us reconsidering the route we will take to get there, or what the destination is. Stationing at 8 Sagittarius (for nearly the whole month) those of us with chart factors at 8 Sag, Gemini, Virgo or Pisces (give or take 2-3 degrees on either side) are really gonna get hit with this one, though it’s a bit like a volcano erupting in slow motion. Aries transits of the Sun, Mercury and Venus, after the 5th, all amplify the fiery nature of this month. Fire burns and purifies by relinquishing the detritus holding us back. Fire also is associated with self expression, creativity and imagination, so it’s quite possible a big artistic project is in the frame. The Sabian Symbol for 8 Sagittarius is “Within the depths of the earth new elements are being formed” or as Thomas Carlyle said: “No pressure, no diamonds” so there is the potential now for profound alchemical transformation of the inner realm, as there are significant changes taking place. It’s a lot of pressure for Mars to hinge on a single degree for this amount of time. A great deal of this is going to happen beneath the surface, and with Mars set to move back into Scorpio by the end of May, we will once again engage the depths of the psyche as we submerge back into Scorpios’ depths. Go deep and make your diamonds people! By November, this phase of the adventure comes complete, and with Mars and Saturn meeting up on the 24th of August, a significant leg of the journey will be made. Saturn is setting the goals, Mars will bring the energy to achieve them.

VENUS IN ARIES – The opportunity for clarification and resolution of old issues, a new beginning; symbolized by the Four of Rods – Aquarian Tarot

 

Screen Shot 2016-03-31 at 2.41.53 PM

Venus will be in Aries from April 6th, intensifying the ambience and making us receptive to passionate encounters. After the prickly relationship dynamics we endured last month – Venus square Mars, Venus square Saturn, Venus conjunct South Node 😦 we will thoroughly enjoy the positive, upbeat quality of time we get this month. Venus trine Mars (12th), Venus trine Saturn (18th) and Venus conjunct Uranus (22nd) will offer renewal and growth through our encounters with others, especially where the pleasure principal is highlighted. With Uranus in the mix there can be opportunities for enticing new liaisons, though with Mars going retrograde, maybe not the best time to start a major relationship, IMO

Mercury flies through Aries like a banshee, ending a brisk two week transit when it enters Taurus on the 6th. Mercury will be in Taurus for a lengthy total of nearly 10 weeks, finally leaving on June 13th. From Taurus the thought process is anchored intensively to the material realm, so it’s likely we’re negotiating financial agreements and attending to matters of security over the next two and a half months. By mid – April you’ll get the gist, and the 14th and 17th are exquisite for conversations or hatching ideas that will offer solutions, as long as you realize this is just the beginning of a dialogue that will continue through the end of May.

Though Mercury is debilitated during it’s retrograde cycle (April 29 – May 23) the configuration it allows for is really quite incredible, as from Taurus Mercury completes a Grand Trine in the earth signs connecting Jupiter/North Node in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn. The Sun in Taurus from April 20th adds palpable significance within this period and by May 1st, Venus joins the party, indicating a positive and attractive current of energy in relation to money, property and valuable possessions. This also has a very strong influence on our sense of security as we are likely to feel grounded and prepared to work productively towards goals. Of course – don’t think this one is in the bag, although you may find as early as May 7th or 10th that significant alliances are being formed or that prosperity and good fortune are moving in your direction. With Mercury retrograde, it’s very important to remain composed, especially if very big figures are involved, (and with Jupiter and Pluto involved, it could potentially be very big figures,) through the arbitration phase that is set to occur through May. A critical bit of information or a way better offer could be in store so you’ll do yourself the best favor to wait and hedge your commitments until the end of the month of May. Mercury stations from May 19 – 26 at 14 Taurus, in a pretty tight trine to Jupiter 13 Virgo. If nothing else, good moods and positive thinking will be pervasive, and with Jupiter direct (from May 9) it could be that we are putting the finishing touches on a very lucrative contract and working out all the juicy details. May the 30th is a good day to lock down agreements or dig a bit deeper in regard to your associates before you commit. Mercury activates the Nodal axis on the 21st and 22nd, offering a glimpse into what is ahead and what we should be striving for.

STARGZER MONTHLY HOROSCOPE:

ARIES – Events this month have the potential to give you a brand new lease on life, and with Venus in your sign you will no doubt benefit from revealing your softer and more gentler side. Sparks of love that fly around the 12th and 22nd can kindle a new romance or take a current one to a whole new level. Exploration is key, and there is an exciting and spontaneous quality to connections you make now. Sneak in some kinky on the 12th, you earned it! The 18th can be ideal for establishing (or at least exploring,) a commitment with long range potential. A New Moon in your sign on the 7th connects to Uranus, signaling a desire to express complete authenticity, perhaps even making an unanticipated if unprecedented move. Professional obstacles or commitments not withstanding, you can feel a sense of urgency to make a radical change. Saturn is supporting your better interests, so go for it! Mind on your money and money on your mind from the 5th, as a two month transit involving Mercury (retrograde next month) impacts your house of income, personal resources and self worth. Think long game on this one: negotiations will see a few loops and turn arounds, and the conversations and agreements you enter into around the 14th and 17th bear fruit towards the end of May. Keep yourself open to changes and hang tight, this cycle can produce genuine prosperity, all the dirty details simply need to get hammered out first.

TAURUS – Your Sixth Sense is buzzing this month, and you have the potential of going deep within your psyche to retrieve treasures both forgotten and unknown. You would betray the best outcome right now by trying to extend your reach too far – think in internals, the best exploration you can make right now occurs within you. This inquiry, or maybe it’s a meditation (?) will help you unravel the knots of the current Mercury cycle, taking up a pretty solid 10 week stay in your sign from the 5th onward. On the plus, this cycle harmonizes a very positive potential for reaching a broader audience through a creative or personal undertaking. It’s also possible if you are looking to adopt a child from a foreign country, or in a relationship with someone from abroad, and if so, this matter is coming together for you in May. Conversations or insights that occur around the 14th and 17th set into motion the wheels for this opportunity, and although there may be a few detours, by the last week of May, things fall neatly into place. Mercury retro in your sign (from April 28 – May 22) can bring several reappraisals and shifting conditions. Meanwhile, Venus will enter your sign on the 29th, so you can expect some really delightful experiences throughout May, and it would seem likely people from your past play a role. A partnership matter comes to a head during the super emotive Scorpio Full Moon on the 22nd, and you need to decide if you are in or out. Unexpected, even unprecedented culminations in a relationship are possible. So are you?

GEMINI – Collaboration and team work is fruitful for you this month, as the energy of others spurs you to action, and offers inspiring insights that enhance your relationships with very positive influences. Romance can be found through friends or at a networking event. A key partnership is stimulated around the 12th, make the best of it. When Mars goes retrograde on the 17th you may find the flames of passion subside for a few months, which may be for the best if a relationship has been burning white hot and you need to tone it down. Surprises are in store on the 22nd, a partner may announce they are going away for work or travel, or you may meet someone completely new and unexpectedly. The gearshift to neutral comes courtesy of a 10 week Mercury phase occurring in your area of hidden treasures, endings and secrets which begins on the 5th. Your intuition will be very strong for the next two months, but this placement makes you highly empathic, and you readily pick up on the vibes of those around you, ESPECIALLY the bad ones, so choose your company carefully. During the retrograde cycle (April 28th – May 22nd) you will be mining some really interesting material from the way, way back of the deepest and darkest depths of your psyche. Pay attention for clues on the 14th and 17th as the topics revealed will likely speak to the ongoing process of resolution you seek to make within yourself during this cycle.

CANCER – The emphasis shifts to the very top of your chart, highlighting your public image and reputation as well as profession, fame and the distinct role you play in society. With Venus here from the 5th you are benefiting from positive PR or may find you have really reached a pinnacle in your career. Stunning opportunities for advancement can be revealed on the 7th, 9th or 20th. Anything that comes up at these times will likely have a futuristic bent, or likely just come in right out of the blue. The influences are positive and tap into your long range objectives and the hard work you have done up to now. Nail down details and make commitments on the 18th. A really bold new enterprise can take shape during the New Moon on the 7th, though you and a business partner or spouse may be at odds as to how you should proceed. More favorable influences en route during the Full Moon on the 22nd highlight creativity and pleasure. You can tap into a more romantic vibe at this point. Friends and organizations, particularly those connected to your past will be a significant source of activities for the upcoming two months, a trend you will most likely enjoy. It looks as though those you will be spending time and catching up with may offer really favorable energies that will help you either meet someone with real partnership potential or help you expand your social network considerably.

LEO – The travel bug hits you hard this month, and you might decide to go off on an unexpected if not unprecedented adventure. The New Moon on the 7th could reveal an exciting opportunity to get on the road. A creative project you have been working on since last Autumn could play a role, literally, if you are an actor, writer or performer you might be going on a tour or lecture series. The influences at work produce decidedly *unexpected* circumstances. They are equally enlivening, and you will want to take advantage of what is on offer, especially if a key partnership is at stake. The caveat: your day job or an uncooperative health issue may hinder your availability to accommodate your spontaneity. If so, this is likely attached to an ongoing issue that is quite ready to be resolved. The solution lies in trying something so extraordinarily different from that which you have in the past (and quite possibly inspired by a brilliant, but unusual cohort,) that you finally make the breakthrough you have been seeking for ages. Two weeks later, April 21st, a Scorpio Full Moon sets you back down to the roots and your base. Where you are from, where you are now, all the changes you have endured in this area for the last several years in this arena flow through your consciousness. Even a year ago, you felt so close to the changes you sought to make but still had so much more work to do. At this point you can look around and feel confidence that the changes you have desired manifested.

VIRGO – As the surreal — if not completely — unreal influences of last month fade into memory, you will find that you are entering a relatively calmer phase. Mercury in Taurus from the 5th provides an ambience of precision and clarity aiding communication and negotiations. This is a longer trend that will influence you through May, there is a long distance connotation and you may be working towards a long range enterprise or adventure that’s going to require some tweaking. April is about grounding down, particularly in regard to relationships that were tricky over the prior period. A bevy of planets and a New Moon in the 8th house (sex, death, intimacy) signals you are in the process of deepening a commitment you made or began last month (if not prior,) or that you are in the alternate process of purging and releasing a relationship that has come to an end. This profoundly personal period taps you into the depths of your desires, many of which may catch you by surprise. Very interesting influences preside on the 9th and 20th in particular, though your love interest might be caught off guard if you intensify your commitment on the 6th or 19th and they aren’t quite ready. Early Virgo will be challenged/stimulated by Mars station at 8 Sagittarius for most of the month. All Virgo will experience the retrograde cycle (beginning April 17 – end June) as a slow down on the domestic front. Just as you were starting to make your climb on and up, residential matters, perhaps a move, sidestep for the time being. For now let the pleasurable influences (particularly those of next month) take precedence.

LIBRA – It’s not so much about the relationship itself, Libra, but your relationship to the relationship and the headspace you allow it to occupy. Uranus is providing a highly liberating influence, but you have to be willing to burn the old script and make a radical departure from the past to make it work. An enticing new cycle begins for you on the 7th, and there are incredible opportunities for you to connect, cultivate and invigorate your relationship to the relationship. A direct approach will work wonders, although you might find your prospects are limited or that a partner goes out of bounds while Mars is retrograde. A contentious energy associated with your domestic scene also seems to be thwarting your efforts to authentic partnering, someone or something finds your arrangement a little too unconventional and this has been a topic of heated debate. To this end the 19th specifically can prove to be a challenging day. What you can benefit from this month, however, is the ability to uncover a whole new approach that can bring about the solution to an ongoing issue. It’s not so much about being confrontational so much as discovering a new way to articulate your position. The week of the 17th provides volumes of information about who – what and where you are headed. From the 5th an emphasis on business partners and shared resources becomes the topic of serious conversation through the end of May. A negotiation may stall or require modifications next month, but stick this one out, as there is a potential for substantial gain that makes the long game worth playing. Conversations, ideas and insights on the 14th and 17th open doors and negotiations that will fall into place by the end of next month. Financials come into focus during the Scorpio Full Moon on the 21st and you may be leaving behind one source of income for another.

SCORPIO – The emphasis for April is your wellness, body, it’s maintenance and your’ lifestyle. There are very positive influences to make long term gains financially as an element of luck and your obvious dedication at work will likely pay off for you in this phase. To the end you have been innovative in regard to your employment prospects, there may be a sudden opening or inspiration that triggers an exciting development. The 7th, 9th and 20th reveal the details. Currently, you have good energy to make money, the 5th, 12th and 18th are especially positive. However, with Mars going retrograde on the 17th, you may see a financial slow down, so while you can make some extra funds, it’s wise at this point to save that for a rainy day. The 17th and 18th see your double rulers, Mars and Pluto turn retrograde. Some of the candor and enthusiasm you felt since New Years will likely diminish as energy turns inwards, although the next few months take a very social turn and emphasize partnership as well as friends. You’ll come back strong in July. A Full Moon in your sign on the 22nd signals endings and culminations. You are ready to release much in this phase, and this serves you well with so much to gain over the coming months. You may have to look within for answers, but you will find them if you do! Mercury in Taurus from the 5th begins a significant 2 month transit affecting partnerships, with Venus to follow on the 29th. There may be some twists and turns on the road to an enduring commitment, but very positive influences assure a satisfying conclusion by the end of May.

SAGITTARIUS – Things get hot and heavy in your neck of the woods Sag, and the closer your b-day to November 30th, the more exquisite (or excruciating) the intensity you experience over the next month as Mars stations in your sign. The good news is there are electrifying currents due in your romantic, creative and self expressive realms, you can connect with an authenticity as well as foster new connections that allow you to express yourself in bold new ways you have never likely considered. The New Moon on the 7th sets the stage for incredible developments, especially strong signals appear on the 9th, 12th and 22nd. You are guided with incredible conviction, and feelings of bravery are strong in this period. There could be some discouraging news about the financials, and the 6th and 19th can be challenging in this regard. An inventive approach may trigger an answer to a long standing issue. Provocative meetings are on the way, even if your ardor is diminishing during the Mars retrograde phase, you can still explore what is on offer. A love relationship may stabilize on the 18th, or you see significant progress with a personal or creative project. You seek repose towards the end of the month, particularly around the Scorpio Full Moon on the 21st. It is appropriate at this time to reflect upon and release the past.

CAPRICORN – You are restructuring your life on a pretty fundamental level at this point, and it’s likely the changes occurring on the outside (most likely impacting your residence, or the relationship you have with the people within it) are starting to more accurately reflect what’s going on inside. Your inner landscape is ripe with fertile material you can use to create the soul home you seek. As the friction and growing pains of the last few years have given way to a whole new thinking about what the home/family dynamic can look like, you are probably willing to depart radically from what you have known in the past. Cues and clues revealed this month will point you in the right direction as you seek a more authentic space in which to dwell. Opportunities are abundant this month to initiate or make the changes that are long overdue in your private life. To seize this opportunity, you are going to have to employ all new tactics, throw out the script, and start over. If it didn’t work before, it won’t now. A seismic shift in perspective on the 7th will aid you in finding a new solution. Financially it’s a positive month, so you may uncover resources to make a long desired transformation in your living arrangements. Also on queue: from the 6th a long transit of Mercury will see you in a ongoing dialogue regarding a creative project, your children or a love relationship that can lead to having children. Although this negotiation takes time, there are very positive influences presiding over it, possibly someone at a distance or a media or publishing venture is playing a beneficial role here. Your personal passion for this also drives you to reach a successful conclusion. Look to the 17th for clues. More (much more) on this in May.

AQUARIUS – Your innate sparkle is utterly luminous this month, especially when you get out and walk and talk and in the subtle minutia of daily interactions and discourse. Writing, speaking and all communications are enhanced, also making this a great time to take a class or attend a lecture that will open your perspective and allow you to meet new people. You’ll seek mental stimulation and creative activities with a partner, or may even meet someone while simply in the process of your day to day activities. Ideas, flashes of inspiration and even pure genius should be anticipated, particularly between the 7th – 9th, when intellectual stimulation shoots right off the charts. Dialogue is incredibly stimulating for you right now, so rather than have that conversation with yourself in your head, seek the input of outside influences. A great deal of action will also be taking place in your domestic environment, from the 6th a very long transit of Mercury affects your home and private life. There may be a great deal of visitors, and if so they are likely people from your past who you reconnect with. These occasions should be joyous and revelry will warm your abode through May. There may also be reason to celebrate, it’s possible an inheritance or legacy is going to make a move possible, though there will be some turnarounds here too. Retro Mercury can stall paperwork or present an issue with the home itself that must be addressed before moving is viable. Positive developments on the 14th and 17th will point you in the appropriate direction, even if this one doesn’t get wrapped up until the end of next month. Accolades for a job well done on the 21st are the reward for your hard work in your profession.

PISCES – So March was maybe the dankest month on record, though hopefully with Venus in your sign you had some good fortune despite all the friction and upheaval! There is a massive shift in the energy fields as Aries dynamics really begin to take over, and by the 6th we won’t even remember some of the more intense passages endured last month. The New Moon on the 7th triggers an amazing new channel of resources for you – a breakthrough regarding your self worth and what you care about can occur now allowing you tap into an eclectic or novel new way to earn. The 9th and 22nd are also highlighted, resources can flow in now and will allow for an electrifying current of change within your values. What does slow down over the next 10-ish weeks are some reversals of course in your professional life, it looks like your going to be taking a detour to reach your aspirational goals. Reconsideration of your tactics, or your destination will be a fairly prominent feature of the next three months. The Scorpio Full Moon on the 21st may send you some positive signals of the direction you may choose to consider. Meanwhile your social life is set to pick up, with really fresh and stimulating influences will really enhance communication and your day to day activities. A project in your neighborhood can be a productive use of these transits, and you might bump into old friends in the course of your daily commute. The retrograde period of Mercury will not have a particularly negative effect, though you will be better off to avoid negotiations or filing any significant paper work, especially if money is involved. This would be a good time to edit or revisit a writing project however, as you may find stunning new ways to articulate your message.
