STARGAZER FORECAST JULY 2015

STARGAZER JULY OVERVIEW:

***Personalized July Readings based on your chart now available. Contact stargazerastroatlas@gmail.com***

Well, we made it through the prior Mercury Retrograde and Shadow phase, (which officially ended June 26th,) which was particularly bewildering as a long and drawn out square to Neptune was pervasive throughout. Where confusion and illusion reigned supreme, we hopefully have modified our perspective and eliminated some of the delusional bits as they were pointed out to us. Neptune, and the vision/fantasy/dream it stimulates in our life right now, sees much better auspices this month, as planets transiting from Cancer connect fruitfully and beneficially, assisting our quest for connection to the elusive etherial. Dates to look out for are the (Sun) 2nd, (Mars) the 9th and also (Mercury) the 14th. There is an open and receptive quality to events and exchanges at these times, and we can tap reservoirs of deep compassion and imagination. The more abrasive aspects to Pluto (Sun) July 7th, (Mercury) 16th, (Mars) 17th, can indicate severe clashes of will and ego, as there can be very volatile and confrontational events or circumstances to contend with. As always, there is equally potential to break through if we take our ego and personal motives out of the equation and seek to do what is best for the clan (Cancer) through conscientious transformation of the structure (Capricorn).

It’s the New Moon in Cancer on the 16th that proves most pivotal, and offers equal potential for complete breakthrough or when highly contentious or challenging situations are to arise. Likely, it’s a mixture of both, and events transpiring now probably tie into the energy patterns and situations stimulated by the Libra eclipse of April 4th. Mercury and Mars are conjunct at the time of the New Moon at 14 Cancer, square the degree of the Eclipse, which fell at 14 degrees on the Aries – Libra axis. New information about the message of the Eclipse emerges here as well new pathways to explore those directives. Pluto lies in direct opposition, from 14 Capricorn, so there can be vexing and contemptuous vibrations, particularly where we are trying to break free from limiting circumstances that have restricted us unconditionally or for a great deal of time. Emotion is enhanced and emphasized, and there can be a great deal of effusive feeling (good or bad) that simmers quickly to the surface. A theme of removing one’s emotional armor can become apparent, and Neptune harmonizes the polarities from Pisces, lending a supportive spiritual awareness that emphasizes compassion to guide us during this dynamic, potentially stormy, phase of activities. Again, we harmonize with the dream and visionary to make the most of the energy available at this New Moon.

Chiron, now retrograde, also benefits from the Cancer transits, linking to the Sun on the 14th, Mercury on the 19th and Mars on the 27th. These transits signify opportunities to heal, but in a radical or renegade sort of way. Trying alternative therapies – acupuncture, aroma/chroma, crystals or other non-traditional forms of care can be very successful at these time.

Venus continues to galavant through Leo. Her conjunction to Jupiter on the 1st (21 Leo) is highly auspicious for the area of your chart lit up. Very positive vibrations are stimulated and you may turn up help, resources or another form of “good luck” that assists you in the pursuits of the house being stimulated. As it’s a once in 12 year event, (really once in a lifetime since Uranus is still in trine from Aries,) the “where” is going to provide a major asset for you over the coming year! You may have already begun to see the themes emerging during the Jupiter – Uranus trine last month. Venus comes in and offers a major assist now. It’s very easy under this alinement to just want to roll high on the energy of the good vibes emanating. A Full Moon at 9 Capricorn the same day will likely provoke a more attentive if not tenacious response. Attention to matters of business may be highlighted. Nonetheless, a fun and carefree ambience will underscore any more serious activities.

Jupiter leaves the shadow of it’s prior retrograde phase the weekend of the 11th. This will begin a chapter of fresh opportunities for growth and expansion. This sector of your chart is far from being done, as transits of Sun, Mercury, Mars and Venus will continue to activate Leo throughout the Summer months. Hopefully the Venus – Jupiter link provides a wonderful opportunity in this area, with the other transits continuing to enhance our efforts with the Leo dash of fun, creativity and self expressiveness.

On the 19th, Venus stations at 0 degrees Virgo, where it remains at through the end of the month, turning retrograde on the 25th. The retrograde period of Venus occurs every two years and lasts through September 6th. The retro phase is not considered auspicious for making expensive purchases, particularly of luxury items or art, taking vows or deepening romantic commitments, or undertaking dramatic changes of one’s appearance, particularly cosmetic surgery. Matters of the heart may be rekindled (resurfacing of past romance) or a relationship ongoing may be reconsidered, or merely set aside, if one or both of the partners need to be away for any reason. It’s a mild transit, for the most part, and does set the stage not only for two more Venus – Jupiter conjunctions, but also two more trysts with Mars. These are highly alluring and auspicious events! Meanwhile, tangent Saturn will also be in the frame, forming an abrasive square on the 14th (28 Leo – Scorpio) with two more upcoming. Duty and obligation may interfere with the connections we seek to make in these phases, though the awareness triggered by feelings of limitation can give urgency to solve the problem or resolve the obstacle Saturn is creating for us, which can be quite useful. Saturn and Venus harmonize more fruitfully in November, and we’ll see a better climate for making and cultivating commitments in relationships and for material or financial concerns in general.

STARGAZER MONTHLY HOROSCOPES:

Make sure to make the most of your horoscope by reading for both you Sun and Rising sign. You can get your chart for free on Astro.com

ARIES: This will be a challenging month for everyone, so don’t take it personally if not everyone is able to come through for you in this phase. Equally lit are the areas of home and profession, and you may find it impossible, especially around the middle of the month, to reach any accord in either. You also feel moody, and this can trigger volatile reactions. The Full Moon in Capricorn on the 2nd sees a stunning culmination in your career or choice of life direction. A living mate or family member may display envy or challenge you at this time. If issues cannot be resolved, the New Moon on the 16th will allow for a change of residence more appropriate for your evolving needs. The 8th is very revealing of your most subconscious desire where residential matters are concerned. A romance is still on fire and the 1st sees the stunning conjunction of Venus and Jupiter in the house of True Romance. Don’t tell yourself a fairy tale romance is too good to be true, because it is, though enjoy it while you can as shifting tides at the end of the month may pull your lover out of your orbit temporarily when Venus retrogrades on the 25th.

TAURUS: It’s a challenging month for all, Taurus, so if folks seem out of sorts or hard to reach, don’t take it personally. Communication and long distance travel will be the most significantly impacted for you, mid month features incredible challenges, and travel should be avoided if possible. The earlier part of the month is far more favorable, and you might try for the 2nd, when a Full Moon illuminates the zone of distant horizons. You can connect with a visionary experience while traveling, and the 8th is also auspicious for articulating your hopes, wishes and dreams through writing or poetry. Domestic and residential concerns will preoccupy you otherwise: a very positive development on the 1st (when Venus is conjunct to Jupiter, affecting your personal life) in addition to very auspicious financial conditions that allow for improvement over the first week augment significant and substantial upgrades to your living situation. A Full Moon on the 31st emphasizes your professional achievements, pushing you into the spotlight. A change of agenda is indicated when Venus retrogrades on the 25th.

GEMINI: Financial undercurrents and the divide between what’s mine/what’s your’s/what’s our’s predominates in July, with some real confrontational episodes if accord cannot be found in the division of equity or shared resources. A breakthrough – settlement, or division of property is possible. The New Moon on the 16th signals a peak of activity in this arena: you might add a source of income, only to see resources dwindling due to debt or expenditures associated with a business or personal partnership. The 15th is highly contentious. You’ll seek reprieve, and revelry though a writing project or friends could be just the right antidote. Jupiter’s last full month in the house of daily life and communication suggests you make the most of it while you can! The conjunction of Venus to Jupiter on the 1st shows you the way through. The first week of the month features some very enjoyable moments, so it’s not all doom and gloom. A strong career emphasis on the 8th and 13th in particular allow for insights or conversations that will lead to added earnings through your professional endeavors.

CANCER: July is pretty stormy by any account with everyone affected, you do your best to not make too much out problems that are not your own. The first week goes very well, with a good deal of information coming in in regards to your profession and linking to positive financial developments behind the scenes. A very auspicious meeting of Venus and Jupiter on the 1st can bring about a really incredible development connected to your earnings, savings or the acquisition of valuable property. It’s around the 6th and into the middle of the month challenging vibrations really begin to present themselves. A very confrontational New Moon in your sign on the 16th can see you at odds with a partner. Mars and Mercury combine in your sign, opposing obstinate Pluto and it looks like someone has their fight face on. Neptune sends in some supportive vibrations, easing your nerves on the 8th and 13th. Try tuning into the bigger picture when these occur. Like everything, no matter how entrenched the challenges are at the time, all things come to an end eventually. Venus retrogrades in Leo on the 25th slowing earnings to some extent, though Mercury steps in around the same time, so finances continue to be a topic for a few more weeks. Use it or lose it, Jupiter is set to move out on the 11th of August.

LEO: Venus and Jupiter conjunct in your sign on the 1st, you feel vital and generous, especially with a loved one. The first week of the month is very satisfying in regard to love and friendship. Behind the scenes and in your most private life things may get a little stormy. The period around the New Moon on the 16th is very contentious, particularly where a secret may come to light that exposes a very inconvenient truth. It’s also possible a health matter surfaces now quite unexpectedly, or there could be friction in your work environment. Perhaps a colleague has been acting surreptitiously and the exposure of these actions affects you personally. Venus retrograde on the 25th bring Venus back to your sign next month. The Sun and Mercury both enter your sign on July 24th bolstering your efficiency and invigorating your spirit. Jupiter complete it’s passage through your sign in the coming weeks, use your good fortune or lose it! Saturn back in Scorpio may see reemergence of a residential issue you had thought was resolved. This issue will be sensitized around the 14th and 26th, with resolution in store next month.

VIRGO: A secret, sultry love affair may be on July’s agenda when Venus and Jupiter combine beautifully on the 1st of the month. A friend may make an introduction to someone that feels like positive serendipity. Events on the 8th, as well as a Full Moon in the house of True Romance conjunct passionate Pluto on the 2nd also bode positively for engaging in a pleasure pursuit. Venus makes a brief transit of your sign from the 19th, going retrograde on the 25th, so you’ll feel oh so smitten… Not quite yet Virgo, seems like there is some thing or some one not quite ready to join your team. Mid month features some pretty confrontational episodes, might be your crew doesn’t see eye to eye with you on your new love interest. You might have some explaining to do, or not! Your choice, and you still benefit now more than ever from reflection and privacy, though a lot of social invitations likely come your way this month as well. You can choose to take it or leave it on the New Moon on the 16th.

LIBRA: Completion in the domestic cycle comes over the Full Moon in Capricorn on the 2nd, tying back to events late last December. A residential move or shift of some sort occurs, possibly for the sake of a career opportunity that comes to fruition mid month. An intense dynamic is at play in your professional sphere, which requires incredible finesse to deal with. Personalities or situations you have to contend with can be volatile, particularly around the New Moon on the 16th. A dark mood on the 14th affects you personally, keep busy to mitigate the blues. Set the record straight on the 16th – the plans you put into motion now set the agenda for the next 3 months. Professionally there can be a significant breakthrough, you have to leave something behind to make the most of or engage this opportunity fully. Intuition will guide you on the 8th, tune into a vision for the future. The Full Moon in Aquarius on the 31st will bring more cheerful vibrations. A creative project or time spent with chidden elevates your spirits considerably.

SCORPIO: Mars from Cancer infuses you with passion and drive, but mid month sees some very contentious vibrations as Sun opposite Pluto (July 6th), Venus square Saturn (the 14th) and Mars/Mercury opposite Pluto (the 15th) make it pretty hard to hear yourself in the crowd. You may or may not notice of course. This is the last full month of Jupiter in Leo, and coupled with the transit of Venus, and a sparkling conjunction between them on the first, there’s a use it or lose it quality this month that will make you want to tune everything out and focus on the incredible developments taking place for you professionally. Sun and Mercury move into Leo on the 24th, roll up your sleeves and get to it! Saturn back in your sign helps you tie up any loose ends, and also gives you a healthy dose of seriousness and endurance you can actually really benefit from in this hardworking phase. A Full Moon towards the end of the month pulls your attention to your domestic sector, and you may be seeing some movement here. Venus retrograde on the 25th sees that you may be generating less revenue over the coming weeks, or that an enterprise may see shifts in personnel. A strong female figure would be the most likely to move on from the crew in question. Love and relationships always seem to suffer to some extent in this period, and while there might not be a change of heart, there can be separations due to circumstances.

SAGITTARIUS: There may be some conflicts this month with a spouse or business partner regarding shared sources of revenue. Disagreement stems from distinguishing the division of what is mine, your’s and ours. These themes resonate as soon as the Full Moon on the 2nd, bringing closure to a personal financial matter, with clashes upcoming two weeks later, during the New Moon on the 16th. If you have debt that needs to be resolved this can manifest in an unwelcome call or correspondence from a bank or credit card company, as well. You can mitigate a financial catastrophe well in advance by keeping up with your bills and having something set aside to cover any shortages that might occur in this period. There will still be several reasons to celebrate this month. A luxe vacation may be in store around the Venus – Jupiter conjunction on the 1st. A Neptune influence is present, so a sea side resort would be appropriate and offer very pleasurable recreation, particularly if you are traveling with a loved one. Venus from Leo sends lovely vibrations, a trend that endures through the 19th, when it enters Virgo. Use it or lose it! This is the last full month of Jupiter in your sign, and you still have brilliant auspices right now to put a personal endeavor into motion.

CAPRICORN: There are some pretty contentious forces at work this month, potentially tying back to issues that surfaced in a relationship at the beginning of the year. Set your intentions squarely at the time of the Full Moon in your sign on the 2nd. A close alinement to Neptune suggests you tune into the vision you really want for your life in this phase. An intrinsic sense of serendipity will bring ease and relaxation of your essence. Really trying energies are present around the time of the Cancer New Moon on the 16th, as the Sun, Moon, Mercury and Mars oppose Pluto in your sign. Dynamic forces at work here can bring heated argumentativeness into a partnership or with an open enemy or fierce competitor. Uranus is close enough in range at the time of the New Moon to still present a certain X Factor. Also look to your chart for the precise date of the opposition of Mars to your Sun or Ascendant. This will be a very sensitive transit that affects you quite personally. The 14th sees the square of Venus to Saturn, and a dour, depressive mood prevails. It’s choppy waters out there for sure. The first week, on the other hand, has some really marvelous influences. A Venus – Jupiter conjunction on the 1st sets a really positive tone, and can bring fourth a really excellent source of revenue for you, if not deepen the bond between yourself and a lover. Communication on the job through the 5th will be very good, and negotiations and discussions go very well. Venus retrograde from the 25th suggests a slowdown or period of reappraisal of a business partnership or romantic relationship.

AQUARIUS: You’ll move into a more hard working phase in July, as numerous Cancer transits including the Sun (June 22,) Mercury (July 9,) and Mars (June 25th,) signal your attention is shifting to matters of health, life management and productivity. Some challenging alinements to Pluto mid month, around the time of the Cancer New Moon on the 16th, may suggest someone is working behind the scenes to undermine the efforts of yourself or your team. It is possible a secret emerges in this period that has a negative effect on the productivity of your workplace. Very positive indications at the beginning of the month, on the other hand, favor a relationship as Venus and Jupiter connect in Leo. This could mutually factor for a love relationship or a business partnership. With Venus and Jupiter involved, there is more than enough to go around, and you are best advised to use it to your advantage. People just want to help you in this phase, and their motivation is genuinely altruistic. It’s a brilliant opportunity to connect with love and generosity. All is hunky dory with more good news coming in until the 6th. With Pluto involved in contentious aspects for the upcoming weeks, it’s equally possible that global financial issues are at odds with your agenda, and that a feeling of forces at work much bigger than ourselves will likely present obstacles for everyone. Enjoy the good stuff the best you can! A Full Moon in your sign on the 31st brings a wonderful personal culmination six months in the making. Being at ease with yourself puts you at ease with all that surrounds you.

PISCES: The first week of July is very advantageous for making the most of opportunities connected to work and profession. A Venus – Jupiter conjunction on the 1st can bring a significant and lucrative offer of employment. Harmonious contacts through the 5th allow you hash out details and negotiate for a fair salary. Mars enters Cancer (June 25th) activating passion towards creative expression and romantic encounters. Mercury also transits this area, indicating a great deal of communication and energy is flourishing your creative longings at this time. Tough alinements to Pluto around the time of the New Moon on the 16th suggest a group of friends or organization you work with feels threatened by your independent expression, or unsettled with your choice in a romantic affiliation. You can take or leave the opinions of others, the emphasis on following your inspiration and personal power is very strong in this phase. Look to the 1st and 8th to make choices about your life that require both compassion and conviction. Intuition will also feature largely on the 13th. You can tap right into the heart of your desire. A Full Moon in Aquarius on the 31st sees a need for withdrawal from external demands. Venus retrogrades on the 25th, suggesting a period in which you will be redefining your work and professional goals.

STARGAZER ASTROLOGY FORECAST MARCH 8th – 14th, 2015

Electrifying Impulses and Emancipation: Chaos and Creation

A serious tone predominates at the beginning of the week as the Moon transits Scorpio, demanding emotional honesty and stimulating intensely passionate exchanges. Coupling with the Pisces Sun midweek signals a deep emotional resonance and even sensitivity to those inclined to highly empathic vibrations. Sun conjuncts Chiron in Pisces Sunday March 8th, bringing light and perhaps remedy to sensitivity or feelings associated with injury and self worth. (The area of your chart being transited by Chiron is impacted, see your horoscope!) It’s possible a man or some kind of authority figure assists at this time. Occurrences this day will remind us of events (perhaps recent) in which we have been hurt in some way, (Chiron transited this degree, including a retrograde period, for three months last Summer.) Triggers at this time may be expected, but the renegade spirit of Chiron will also be stimulated, urging movement towards resolution of these issues.

It’s all hands on deck by Tuesday, when a very auspicious Mars – Jupiter trine encourages really bold endeavors. If you have planets or angles close to 14 Aries, Leo or even in Sagittarius (which will be nicely emphasized in trine from both), you feel capable of taking on the world right now and need action and activities through which you can explore, vigorously, the incredible manifestation of this energy. If you found the Jupiter – Uranus trine last week brought less of a return than what you expected, this could be the time of culmination. (With Jupiter still retrograde, Uranus is kinda just poking a sleeping bear. The third trine in June features both planets direct, so the real emphatic developments likely occur then, though results will tie back to endeavors we set into motion both last October as well as last week.)

Digging through the Astro – Archives, I found the last time there was a Mars/Aries trine to Jupiter/Leo was in March 1968, at 27 degrees. This is a very special contact! More challenging, or possibly stimulating, or both, will be Wednesday, when Mars steps in and adds ammunition to the stormy and vexing Uranus – Pluto square. Yikes. This one could get intense with Mars – Uranus urging a dynamic push for liberation but Pluto presenting some kind of obstacle or requiring a fundamental transformation. There is a volatility to this that will no doubt play out on the global stage, particularly in regions where there have already been episodes of violence. For us as individuals this plays out the themes of the the Uranus – Pluto square, which has been a concern since 2012. Are we ready to let go of an old dogma to gain freedom? This might just be the tipping point, possibly a necessary one, though more will be in store March 16th, (Uranus – Pluto square) and likely during the Libra eclipse April 4th, which taps right into these dynamics. The Zen mantra “The Obstacle is the Path” may be reflected upon if you feel a sense of crisis or tension.

The Mars – Uranus conjunction (14 Aries) ignites an exciting new two year energy cycle. What we initiate now (and of course signified by the area in our chart where this occurs,) has major implications, taking us on an exciting new journey connecting us to our brilliance and offering liberated impulses in the area where they occur in your chart. Impulsive energy abounds, and we are likely to look before we leap! This path will undergo substantial modifications during the next Mars retrograde phase next Spring (April 17th – June 29th, 2016). Interesting to note, the Mars 2016 retro phase occurs in Sagittarius – Scorpio over nearly the precise degrees Saturn will retrograde this Spring – Summer, thus the groundwork and long range efforts we are structuring and putting into place now will see a significant boost of energy and momentum next year, but also potentially a reversal. Fated much? Most certainly. The area of your chart impacted between the degrees 25 Scorpio – 8 Sagittarius (even if two houses or a cusp is activated) is of major import to you over the next year. Be very aware that the commitments you make now (Saturn) as they may become a matter of contention or disruption (Mars) next Spring during that Mars retro phase, and build your karma correctly, only making promises you can really deliver upon. Through Sagittarius, a legal or ethical struggle could be a part of this scenario.

Saturn retrograde 4′ 56″ Sagittarius Saturday the 14th indicates a period of reappraisal of the long range goals stimulated in the area of your chart Saturn is transiting. We receive the Karmic returns on our efforts made in this area since last July and if we find our strategies have not worked out, this is a period of reconfiguring either the goal or the means by which we will try to get there. If you have planets or angles around 4 Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini, or Virgo, there can be substantial challenges in this phase, as these energies are forcing critical examination via the Saturn contact. All will reconcile by this Fall! Juno direct on Thursday amplifies a desire towards meaningful connection, even a marriageable prospect. Saturn and Juno will trine early in April, and a commitment may be made during this period.

Mercury enters Pisces on Thursday after a very long transit of Aquarius. Now well out of shadow, the convolutions and mixed signals that predominated over the first two months have dissipated. From Pisces, empathic communication is emphasized, as thought and perception are deeply sensitized to the nuances that surround us and the subtle cues of the environment as well as those we encounter. This is a wonderful time for creative people, but also a good time to keep your antennae down if you are very sensitive by nature, you’ll easily pick up on negative vibrations at this time. Traveling at full speed, Mercury makes a swift transit, which will last through the final days of March, ingressing into Aries on the 30th. Full speed ahead.

Thursday PM is divine as the Sagittarius Moon hooks up with the Jupiter – Uranus trine, generating a really positive ambience for exploration and excitement. Positive energy continues to culminate into Friday, as the 4th Quarter Moon (completions) harmonizes brilliantly with Mars and Venus in Aries. The Venus effect will be notable, as our activities (via the quarter Moon phase) are very much enhanced by the graciousness and pleasure giving attributes of the planet, though she’s a bit of a tom boy in Aries! Vitality and enthusiasm play a significant role. Juno resumes direct motion at 3 Leo at this time, further enhancing the fire trinity. After a complex week, this a very favorable ambience. Enjoy!

ARIES: It’s a very dynamic week for you, Aries, as your ruling planet gets highly supportive vibrations from expansive Jupiter on Tuesday. Unprecedented levels of energy guide you to take on a massive endeavor. You seek to reach out to a loved one or express yourself in a creative medium or through performing arts. A contentious vibration mid week may signify fallout with a superior associated with your profession. You may feel an urgent desire to burn a bridge, pull a Jerry Maguire and go off to do your own thing. If that is the authentic and appropriate direction for you, then so be it. Issues of control are at stake here and if you feel you’re being pinned down by a person or circumstance you may feel the impetus at this time to move away from an oppressive situation. You are deep in your element towards the end of the week as the Sagittarius Moon offers influences of generosity and prosperity. Take note of the subtle cues over the coming weeks, as you may be firming up a strategy behind the scenes while Mercury transits Pisces. Your intuition and imagination are deeply enhanced, making this a good time to tune in through dreams, meditation and reflection. Sun – Chiron at the beginning of the week may see you revisiting past hurts or a feeling of weakness in your spiritual armor. This is the appropriate time to relinquish anything you feel is holding you back. Retrograde Saturn may see a career objective or educational prospect stall for a few months while you re-evaluate your options. Feelings of love are stimulated as Juno turns direct at the end of the week and the Moon trines Venus in your sign. You may decide to reconnect with a romanic partner you have been separated from since December, with more positive developments upcoming next month, when Jupiter goes direct.

TAURUS: Personal and subjective dynamics are stimulated this week, as behind the scenes action precipitates endings and new beginnings for you. A hidden or subversive project or alliance is indicated, though there is a possibility of conflict featuring your educational objectives. Feelings of simultaneous contraction and expansion present a challenging atmosphere, and a secret may be exposed with catastrophic results. Your domestic life may also be implicated, and there can be an urgent desire to attend to matters at home. Or hide! Mercury from Pisces on Thursday puts you more at ease, and you can find it easier in this phase to articulate yourself, as well as enjoy a more favorable social ambience. Use the upcoming weeks to connect with friends and allies, even towards a group project if you like. A friend or associate may really come through for you early in the week, though you might also receive a glaring reminder of a recent rift. Saturn retro on Saturday sees the slow creep of the Master of Reality back into opposition to your sign through the Summer months (June 16 – September 18). Looks like you might have some unfinished business or a karmic adjustment to take care of in a relationship, though once these have been resolved you stand to make tremendous strides through partnership in the last quarter of the year. You can pencil in some “me time” in the meanwhile, as Venus comes to brighten your sign beginning next week! A contentious domestic matter you have not been able to address since last December begins to see reprieve, as Juno direct Friday allows for a correction to imbalanced circumstances.

GEMINI: Push may come to shove this week in matters of shared income, profits or within an intimate relationship. You’ll enjoy the very exciting social dynamics nonetheless and do well to take invitations and get out into the world of your neighborhood and community to the fullest extent possible. Friends and associates will be quite forthcoming and dialogue will sparkle with brilliant connectivity. You may meet a few very interesting people in this phase as well. You might reconsider the future of an association, or take a relationship to another level at the end of the week when a Quarter Moon illuminates your personal relationships. The extent to which your can genuinely share your activities, hopes, wishes and dreams with this person will go very far in determining how much (more) time you are willing to invest in someone. Single Gemini could easily meet up with a very amiable companion at this time as well, mix and mingle! Friday night is divine. Some of the heavier vibrations you may have encountered since New Year’s begin to diminish as Saturn retrogrades in opposition. Could be more of a challenge for early Gems, (May 22 – 29) over the next few months as a pervasive sense of redefinition has you reconsidering all your commitments and attachments. Sun conjunct Chiron/Mercury in Pisces see you putting your all into a professional project, as you find you can finally articulate your career desires and inspirations that have culminated since January. You may feel you have not lived up to your own expectations, if so jump in!

CANCER: Aggravating and longstanding challenges within a close partnership or relationship reemerge this week, with your professional standing or reputation a matter of serious contention between yourself and a business partner or your spouse. Changing circumstances to an agreement or commitment may be par for course at this time, but if an explosive situation emerges this week, you can be sure it has been percolating for a great deal of time. Wednesday is particularly volatile, though the Scorpio Moon supports you and aids you to proceed from your heart and instincts. What is working are your professional commitments and an extremely fortunate offer that abets your reputation and public standing, while boosting your bank account could be on offer. Tuesday and Thursday into Friday all see stunning, if not totally unexpected culminations, as your work – earnings – profession trinity is lit up brilliantly, with all these areas working together, you stand to gain tremendously. Publishing, media, teaching, philosophy and far horizons also play a role, as communication with people way outside your normal milieu becomes a major feature over the upcoming weeks. Sun to Chiron suggests a healing moment through a philosophical inquiry or through a teacher or spiritual advisor. You may just as easily experience a sense of disappointment or frustration from this contact, though it is a signal you have some inner repair work to get to. Mercury will aid you in finding the solution.

LEO: There’s a lot af va-va-voom in your engine this week, and even if a dormant Jupiter has left you in a bit of slump since last December, you begin to get strong indications that things are revving up for you in the near future. An issue connected to health, work or productivity could stymie your efforts mid week, as a longstanding matter comes back into frame rather disruptively. This could indicate a power struggle with a co-worker or supervisor that escalates now. Tempers will be volatile around this one, though you have the choice of taking the highroad as a transit of the Moon in Sagittarius puts you right back in your element of vitalizing enthusiasm. You and Pluto do not have a good relationship to begin with – no other planet is more likely to deliberately act in a surreptitious or deceitful way, and if you learn of treachery in the midst of your workplace, you will feel a genuine fallout. Your soul is honorable by nature and power struggles are simply not your thing! Very positive feelings become amplified Thursday into Friday, when a really stunning trine between all the fire signs erupts in the feel good moment of the week. Tap into your enthusiasm and make another go of things. We’re down to the last month of Jupiter retrograde, and you’ll see your spirit rekindle it’s passion in no time. Your mind turns to matters behind the scenes, as well as joint financial issues and intimacy, and you may pull back somewhat over the coming weeks while you consider the deeper issues of your life as well as transformative events that have occurred recently. Saturn retrograde from the 14th suggests you take a more casual repose through the Summer. Your recent spurt of maturation has not gone unnoticed, but have a break, for now.

VIRGO: The recent Full Moon in your sign left you with a lot of food for thought, so what’s next Virgo? Rumblings and grumblings in the most hidden corridors of your psyche come on strong in this phase, and you might have it out with a lover if you don’t see eye to eye on personal matters. Your intimate life and growing feelings of desire compel a dramatic turn of events mid week, and even relationships that should be casual are feeling very intense right now and arousing pretty disruptive altercations. The contact of Sun to Chiron on Sunday will likely stir up sensitivities or feelings of disappointment over conditions in a relationship. Pay attention to these cues and do your best to reconcile with your emotions in order to make changes that bring you closer to the love and commitment you seek. With an eclipse percolating in you opposing signs of partners and spouses next week, you may wish to choose your battles with caution. Mercury in Pisces from Thursday will be help you articulate your goals and desires for a relationship, or stir up controversy where controversy is due. This period is fruitful for negotiating boundaries and this enables you to make better decisions about your upcoming future. Saturn retrogrades in the sector of personal and residential matters, and you may have second thoughts or be reconsidering matters related to your property or living circumstances. If you had been seeking to make structural changes, these will take a lower priority over the coming months, while you continue to come to terms with your real desires here. Signals and indications at the end of the week see some shifts in this area as a prelude to a significant course of your life direction.

LIBRA: It can be a slightly tricky beginning to the week as the Moon transits your sign, making contentious alinements to planets in Aries/Capricorn. You may have to defend your position, and an issue associated with your health or productivity (via Sun – Chiron) may trigger a feeling of weakness or dissatisfaction if you are not happy in your current position. Really exciting developments are on tap in a close relationship, and an introduction or meeting Tuesday into Wednesday can (perhaps literally) set your world on fire. Someone who comes into your life at this time is going to play a really significant, perhaps life changing role. (The closer your Sun/Ascendant degree is to 13-14 Libra will reveal how intensely you feel this attraction.) Forming this alliance will be incredibly enticing, and in many ways stands to make many of your dreams come true, but you will have to reconcile substantial modifications in your personal life or living situation to make it a reality. It’s possible a family member or your locality puts pressure on this relationship. This could also represent a very abrasive or challenging confrontation with a partner, Mars/Uranus stimulates incredible passion, but passion can go both ways: love or hate? Saturn retrograde implicates an ongoing conversation about your residential situation. Your thinking undergoes a necessary shift in perspective between now and August. A vibrant social atmosphere predominates in the second half of the week, and Thursday and Friday are both exceptional to get out and about and connect with kindred spirits. Mercury from Pisces indicates all the hard work you have put in over the prior weeks begins to bear fruit, and you can begin spinning your dreams into reality. Negotiations and communication around an assignment as well as a brisk agenda on the job will set the pace for the rest of the month. People from a distance may feature, and there may be some brief trips involved. Creative inspirations you have nurtured since the beginning of the year begin to culminate in the coming weeks. You now have the ability to express your vision.

SCORPIO: You may feel ready to radicalize your romantic life this weekend, or take on a monumental project associated with self expression. Equally, events of the prior six months may have you confounded as to how to proceed, as recent wounds and disappointments may resurface this weekend, accompanied by a feeling of insecurity if you wish to open your heart and cannot find the way. Mercury from Pisces will be very useful in these matters and you can begin to articulate your desires more readily by Thursday, which will lead you to the right connection or through a creative pursuit sooner than later. Professionally there are substantial developments, though a very prickly altercation, perhaps with someone on the job, may be par for the course mid week. Very dynamic forces are at work and compelling developments bring you ever closer to the elusive career prospects that have been in the works since last Summer. A fabulous success story is on tap in a few more weeks, when Jupiter wakes from slumber. Juno direct on Friday signals shifts and opportunities where things have stagnated since December. Efforts you make now (as well as the ones you made late last Summer into Fall) will bear fruit soon enough! A very intriguing event or offer Tuesday can get you on course. Wednesday is also useful and an unprecedented development can produce a whirlwind of excitement, though in negotiations you may come across heavy handed, you may have to alter your opinion or attitude to make the most of what’s on offer here. Friday you begin to get intonations of changing circumstances in the financial arrangements, particularly your earnings. A job can prove lucrative, but by the time Saturn turns retrograde next weekend, you are set for a reassessment of your budget and earnings. Things shift shortly, with the professional expansion coming in strong over the coming months, and earnings from your career trickling in from this Fall in a BIG way. Hold on to your earnings for now, and spend cautiously. There aren’t a lot of opportunities to add income immediately, though hard work will yield prosperity this Fall.

SAGITTARIUS: Creativity and romance continue to sparkle, someone form another culture or at a distance may play a part of your love story, with much more to come to light next month in this relationship. You have the potential at this time to harness your creative impulses and create something genuine and authentic. This story plays out over the next two years. This is a time for sensational new beginnings. A prickly financial matter can become significant midweek, and much of March is consumed by the need to resolve this issue. Work towards resolution now, the payoff comes this Fall when career prospects will open the doors to financial reward (when Jupiter trines Pluto). Saturn retrograde from the end of the week sees diminishment of your maturing outlook for a few months, your responsibilities may lessen somewhat or you may be reconsidering what is of personal importance to you. Pay attention in this phase to what the universe is suggesting. Keeping a journal could be a very beneficial as the consciousness you engage with now will define you for the next 30 or so years. The upcoming Mars retrograde (2016) plays out on these significant degrees of the Saturn retrograde, indicating the self awareness you encounter over the coming months is quite crucial in your journey. You can release your grip a bit, but that does not mean you should stop paying attention! The quarter Moon in your sign Friday links up beautifully with Mars and Venus, enhancing your persona brilliantly through a connection to love or self expression. Mercury from Pisces on Thursday sets the agenda for the rest of March and emphasizes your domestic situation. Indications you have received since the beginning of the year in regard to relocation or home improvement begin to become clearer, with much set to transpire during the eclipse next week!

CAPRICORN: Ethics and philosophy play a major role in your evolution in this through 2017, as your ruling planet, Saturn, transits Sagittarius, urging reflection on your belief structure through meditation and solitude. The retrograde phase of this planet, through August, suggests you will be reconsidering your most private life and attributes, as well as the work you do behind the scenes and receive no visible credit for. This will be augmented at the end of the week by a quarter Moon, which illuminates a very spiritual undertaking or quest, followed swiftly by Saturn turning retrograde. This can mark an existential period for Capricorn, as your innate abilities for strategy and pragmatism diminish for a few months as you reconsider your personal agenda. Other very significant developments continue to play out on very crucial angles of your chart however, so don’t imagine this will be a fruitless period, au contraire! A committed, intimate relationship has likely been on ice since late last year, or your ability to address an injustice or imbalance debilitated. Juno returns to direct motion this week, suggesting you can reconnect (or make a new connection) to a partner or marriage prospect. This is an area that becomes amplified next month when Jupiter also moves forward in this area, and people, as well as their resources, can offer you beneficial growth opportunities through commitment. Your residence may see a major transformation/upgrade this week as well, as an unanticipated opportunity for change comes on offer, though you may have to let go of a fiercely guarded personal conviction to make these exciting changes. Mercury from Pisces promises a vitalizing period for your social life and also favors agreements and contracts. The pace of daily life and communication will be brisk and exciting through the remainder of the month.

AQUARIUS: A partnership is emphasized this week as Juno turns direct in the area of one on one commitments, signaling that feelings of uncertainty or a relationship on ice since December beginning to thaw or come around at this time. Even bigger potentials emerge in the beginning of April, when dormant Jupiter also revives this area. You get some good indications things are moving in the right direction now, with events on Tuesday – Wednesday signaling portentous developments and a conversation that could quickly change your life direction in a heartbeat. You may learn of surreptitious activities behind the scenes, or one of your own secrets could emerge and create a bit of chaos in your daily lifestyle or activities. Aspects of your submerged and guarded life come under scrutiny in the coming weeks, though equally, you could be trying to eradicate a debilitating addiction or seek to bring a transgressive truth to light. Events this week escalate the significance of this transformation, a real breakthrough is possible! (Uranus – Pluto next week will speak to this as well, stay tuned!) Next up, Saturn retrograde, climbing back into Scorpio over the Summer months to address unfinished business in your professional arena, and clear your directives for the upcoming year. Events that precipitate over the coming months in this regard will be a big part of the story in the first half of 2016, so be mindful of the commitments you make now, you will be expected to carry these out over the long haul and the heat will be on you next Spring to deliver what you are promising at this time. Slow and steady! Mercury from Pisces allows you to formulate a financial strategy and the indecisiveness you have endured so far this year mitigates as you focus your attention towards personal values and earnings.

PISCES: After a long transit of Mercury through the secret corridors of your soul, you are at last able to articulate the numerous insights and inspirations that have resonated within you since the beginning of the year beginning Thursday, when the Messenger planet enters your sign. After months of stasis and reflection, the pace of life will become brisk and communicative as the winter doldrums rapidly recede from memory. Professional matters become emphasized towards the end of the week, as a Quarter Moon signals a change in circumstance preceding Saturn retrograde on Saturday. The hard work you have been putting in to your career and activities associated with achievement now either deliver for you or force a modification of strategy. Travel or education may feature this Summer as you brush up on a skill set or connect with a foreign client base to move forward on your objectives this Fall. Very exciting, but potentially dramatic circumstances are possible this week, with Tuesday and Wednesday highlighting a significant financial opportunity, but equally a challenging shift in orientation with a group or in regard to a dream. An impulse towards financial independence is indicated here, and initiates a two year cycle in which you make strides to gain economic emancipation. An on the job matter also sees positive signs of growth and if a work opportunity slipped off the radar our your productivity has felt stagnant since mid December, you’ll feel an escalation of activity as Juno resumes direct motion towards the end of the week.
