Stargazer Weekly Forecast 3/11 – 3/17

The ambience intensifies this week as Mars enters Capricorn and Sun moves into Aries (Happy Equinox!) Cardinal energy stirs up incentive and urges striking out towards new frontiers. These two very Yang energies confront one another at the end of the week, tapping into an already overly sensitized 2nd Quarter Moon in Cancer. The results of undertakings or initiatives put into motion late July of last year come into view. It might be time to modify the action plan if things aren’t going the way you would have sought for them to. (You have from now until the Sun – Mars opposition, which takes place in the middle of the Mars retrograde period this year on July 27th, to make modifications.)

Mercury also does it’s about face this week from 16’ Aries. Through April 15th there is a chance to step back, review and recalibrate perspective in what has been so far a very fast paced year. As mentioned in the monthly horoscopes, this particular retrograde has a heavy Saturn flavor to it, and much of what is getting worked out in this period is connected to confronting an obstacle or impediment which only through it’s resolution can progress be made. There can be frustrating moments of limitation attached to this process, but these are really meant to stimulate awareness of where and what needs working on. The end of April holds many opportunities in store if you can tackle the issues on hand.

The end of the week is pretty prickly as Venus squares Pluto, forcing a relationship (for the sake of love or money) to transform or else. (!!!) This can be a stormy influence to contend with and can bring up patterns of jealousy or possessiveness in a relationship that is triggering feelings of insecurity rather than love. It’s time to confront some inner demons and if you can maintain some objectivity, there is a potential for discovery, metamorphosis and healing to occur. This is also the appropriate time to evaluate progress in the objectives established during the first week of January, as these are reaching critical mass now.

The 2nd Quarter Moon that follows on Saturday is no peach either: from Cancer lady Luna opposes intense and obstinate forces via Mars + Saturn in Capricorn while squaring the Sun in Aries. This one looks really pivotal, though with Mercury out of sorts it’s not going to be easy to draw a conclusion about anything too critical. Sit with yourself and relinquish stagnant energies that have been repressed within. Any aggravation you might experience at this juncture is an indication that these urgently seek release.

2wands

Sun enters Aries on the 20th at 12:15p EST, signaling the beginning of the new astrological calendar and opening the energetic field to fresh influences and perspectives. For the next 10 days, the Sun transits the first Decan of Aries, stimulating a double Mars influence connected to the Tarot symbolism of 2 of Wands. Ziegler* offers the indication: “Pay attention to centering. If you’re in contact with your center, you are certain to master the situation. Trust your energy. Don’t go for any false compromises!… Now visualize the situation at hand. See yourself dealing with it while remaining centered.”

STARSCOPES:

april2-copy ARIES March 20 – April 19
You come back into your own this week as Sun joins up Mercury and Venus in your sign. Less easy to deal with is that willy-nilly Mercury retrograde rascal stirring up mischief in your sign. There may be more than one occasion this week you’ll likely want to tell people what is what and effectively put them in their place. Choose to split the difference instead. Though it’s not your style, it takes you further in the long run and with Mars starting a long transit of your arena of life direction, you need to be in this for the duration – pacing yourself is crucial for success.

may2-copy TAURUS April 20 – May 20
You are likely preoccupied with very subjective matters and feeling some really intense peaks of intuition. Tuesday is likely one such moment for you, tapping you into the essence of your inner drives and desires. Friday would be a no-no for first dates or really meaningful exchanges. There is a lot of raw emotion out there you might prefer to steer clear of. Don’t avoid a conflict if it arises, just be aware that your faculties are compromised and trying to make a sensible case for your perspective is just not likely to come off as clearly as you might want.

june2-copy GEMINI May 21 – June 20
While Mercury retrograde season is never easy on you Gem, this one does have the potential to bring back forgotten and long lost friends into your midst. Someone with too many strings attached shows their hand next Friday, and it could be take it or leave it. There is likely to be sexual and financial intensity arising over the coming weeks, so you might want to get your ducks in a row or have a back up plan ready, especially if you have outstanding debts or obligations of an intimate nature. Next weekend reveals what’s in store.

july2-copy CANCER June 21 – July 22
Your star is rising, but you also seem to reconsidering the trajectory it’s traveling, and perhaps need to realign with some core values before you make a substantive move forward. A lot of pressure is coming in from your partnership sector and especially next weekend you are seeing how influential one or a few certain people have become and how that could be affecting your inner compass. While this partnership holds the potential to transform your life, you have to hold the reigns, if only periodically and steer your chariot.

sep2-copy LEO July 23 – August 22
Sun in Aries gives you all the mojo, though Mercury retrograde will have the effect of making you ask where and what you want to steer all that energy. Work matters remain a concern and will stand to modify your arrangements considerably over the coming weeks if not months. This is a good time to advance productivity, though you want to take a slow and steady effort if you are going to maximize your potential in the long run. Shifting dynamics at the end of the week reveal changes you seek to make.

oct2-copy VIRGO August 23 – September 22
With some of the more personal/relation dynamics being settled for you, Virgo begins a season of catharsis and renewal. Don’t get too bemused if things feel a bit sideways and your normally reserved self starts connecting with a more elemental – sensational – emotional aspects of your psyche. You may have not claimed your full value somewhere, or with someone, and this is a period of recalibrating your estimation of your self worth in order to establish the trust you need to proceed. Financial and intimate relationships factor.

oct2-copy LIBRA September 23 – October 23
The relational space just keeps heating up and matched Libras have a lot going for them these weeks ahead with positive vibes to connect and cultivate bonds with a significant someone who really seems to get you. Love juju gets a bit intense towards the end of the week, and especially in a new relationship, try to reserve judgement if someone doesn’t come through for you in precisely the way you would have expected. Insecurities can arise, likely connected to your childhood. The current influences enable you to observe these and extract them as required.

nov2-copy SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
It’s a rather gestational period for you Scorpio and while signals that you are in a period of transformation are abundant, you likely don’t realize the how or why of it all just yet. You may be reversing even recent decisions, especially where the establishment of daily routines haven’t really kicked in yet. Better choices can be made after you review how well aligned your goals are with what you are doing to make them real. Good intentions are well enough, but it’s time to address what you are doing on a habitual level and start to engage more productive strategies.

dec2-copy SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21
Mars leaves your sign this weekend, moving into Capricorn where you will ground and attempt to materialize your recently determined upon inspirations. Sun in Aries adds to the momentum building in the area of your chart linked to pleasure and creativity, although Mercury retrograde could cause a bit of a short circuit over the coming weeks while you figure out how to get it all to come together. Inspiration could peak on Tuesday. Financial matters that require fortitude to get through will be revealed at the end of the week into Saturday.

jan2-copy CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
With Mars in your sign from Saturday you are super activated to get going on the big goals you set for yourself earlier this year. Simultaneously there is a rooting in influence, and while your foundations might seem shaky at best (courtesy of Mercury retrograde) you are coming to terms with what you desire in your ideal living arrangements and considering if those at close distance are serving those needs or providing a distraction. A trigger point next Friday sends signals as to where there is significant room for improvement.

feb2-copy AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Daily life is set to become even more exciting this week, though you might be taking a walk down memory lane and reconnecting with familiar but forgotten friends as the Mercury retrograde cycle unspools over the coming weeks. Mars in Capricorn lends some agitation to your inner space, suggesting it’s time for a mental/spiritual health check in. Expect intuition to be on high, though you won’t know where or precisely how these perceptions are reaching you (dreams, de ja vous and ESP experiences are part and parcel). These signal you to accept and release the past.

march2-copy PISCES February 19 – March 20
Energy continues to percolate in your arena of self worth and values, making this a fortuitous time to appraise your personal assets both substantive and intangible. The upcoming Mercury retrograde phase triggers some reassessment of these matters and contributes to a perceptible delay in gratification. Defining your goals and the networks in which you participate and how well these augment your true aspirations seems to be a critical part of this process. Socially this is a vibrant period, with some rather intense people entering your orbit. At least one or two of these people can show you the way through an otherwise tricky obstacle course regarding personal finance and how to make and keep your money.

STARGAZER MARCH HOROSCOPES:

april2-copy

ARIES: A work project comes complete around the 12th. Your attention returns to more personal matters and finances. From the 11th a transit of Mars through the area of self worth and personal resources (through April 18) will push your attention towards earnings. Follow inspirational hunches on the 27th. Your creative imagination shines. Relationships or feelings of self worth (one is perhaps influencing the other?) get a bit distorted as Venus retrogrades on the 4th. From the 25th you feel a stronger sense of orientation, although it won’t be until the end of next month that all comes together for you personally. Intense vibrations on the 2nd and 30th signal unfinished business in a relationship that was stimulated towards the end of last year. Someone pushes you towards the finish line in a professional undertaking at the end of the month. You can make yourself clear on the 29th. A New Moon in your sign on the 27th sets the stage for progress and success.

may2-copy

TAURUS: The Full Moon in your house of true romance sends exciting vibrations on the 12th, coupled with Mars in your sign from the 11th there are some powerhouse energies on hand making you desire love and personal expression. This is a period in which you’ll want to go after your desires wholeheartedly. Venus retrograde from the 4th, however, could muddy the waters. There is unfinished business to attend to, potentially in regard to a financial matter that will require resolution next month. Also, as your ruling planet, you’ll be a bit hedonistic without the full force of Venus smoothing your edges. A work or health matter could come to dramatic culmination on the 2nd. Professionally you gain a significant insight. There can be much reassessment of developments that came up at the end of last year. Friends are a source of pleasure and inspiration on the 27th. Take someone out to something arty, you’ll have a great time!

june2-copy

GEMINI: The Full Moon on the 12th signals closure within a domestic matter. You may be at odds with a partner, and there could be a tough atmosphere in which this ending occurs. Mutually, a relationship could be getting more serious and there are adjustments being made in light of a commitment. Not so good for making decisions of the heart, meanwhile, is during the Venus retrograde cycle beginning on the 3rd. This month at least there are favorable overtones as colleagues from the past reemerge. You’ll need to balance business with pleasure as a spotlight shines on you professionally and you continue to enjoy favor and an escalated public profile. Dialogue begins around your professional direction on the 6th is very important for the next 4 months. From the 10th, you journey inwards as you bring the events and actions taken since mid May 2015 to completion and begin a process of endings and closure. This can be a process of psychological release. Meditation or therapy may be beneficial for you.

july2-copy

CANCER: Venus retrogrades on the 4th, and what felt like an imminent career breakthrough may feel as though it has slipped through your fingers. You’ll get there in time, something needs to be reworked and you may need to enroll in a class or program or reconfigure your marketing strategy in order to get there. Mars in Taurus from the 11th takes some of the edge off. You’ll seek out company and social experiences that put you in touch with your dreams. Domestic life is a source of possible tension, and events around the home have a somewhat destabilizing quality at this time. These storylines emerged at the end of last year and continue to seek resolution. You can’t push too hard right now, or the seams will burst! From mid month, you are on the lookout for ways to achieve your professional goals. Illuminating insights on the 25th and 26th will help you adjust your course appropriately, and you can set a plan into motion on the 29th with the full awareness it will take until at least the first week of May to see it all fall into line. A New Moon on the 27th points you in the right direction.

aug2-copy

LEO: Long range objectives and your profession are the focus of most of your energy and attention for the next several months, though the cooperation or resources you require to reach your objectives will need to be sought after, perhaps in distant places or with people from other cultures. Look for clues for the direction you might take around the New Moon on the 27th, with full awareness that it might not be until May that you get on that road. Working alone right now is your best bet, and you can accomplish a great deal in the early part of April, (the 6th, specifically). Otherwise there seems to be a stop and start quality present, use the information that arises over the next two months to clarify your enterprise. Lusty passion arises in your love life, the 26th could prove quite enticing. Love relationships and children can be a bit vexing this month. Anticipate some push and pull in regards to matter of the heart. You may seek to throw out an old script and start over completely. This choice resonates with insights you had at the end of 2016, as you find yourself reaching the same conclusion all over again.

sep2-copy

VIRGO: A financial situation seems to get stuck this month, keep the lines of communication open to see any progress in relational matters. Intuition is strong on the 4th and you can read between the lines. A new conversation begins on the 6th, pay close attention to what is being said. A Full Moon in your sign on the 12th bodes well for your self awareness and knowing where you stand. It also reveals where work needs to be done, and issues at home and a close partnership likely continue to be a part of the equation. These topics continue to unfold over the next 8 weeks. Hang in there. Mars from Taurus on the 11th is energizing for you and you’ll come out from the hinterland of a personal transformation ready to embrace a new challenge. The intimacy you seek is possible, but you may have some more internal and/or relational work to do to reach it. It’s possible a familial obligation is blocking your relational progress Be grateful for a second chance to rectify a situation which you had not fully grasped or been able to commit to over the next 6 weeks.

oct2-copy

LIBRA: Venus slows and reverses, signaling you are shelving certain negotiations and agreements for the time being. A jolt at the beginning of the month (March 2) can bring some of the issues to the table, with some clarification on the 5th and 18th a distinct possibility. You can use the New Moon on the 27th to gain clarity about what you would like to see develop in your partnerships moving forward, but perhaps give it until early May to reach to conclusion which you desire. Keep the lines of communication open, many opinions are being expressed through which you can gain in perspective. Sparks can fly during a conversation or chance encounter on the 26th. Seek respite or retreat around the 12th, as a Full Moon signals endings highlighting your innermost psychic domain. A hectic schedule at work could make it difficult to find time for restorative and relaxing activities, but make an effort to meditate and reflect as these will be so regenerative. Your intuition regarding health on the 1st and 4th can be illuminating. Mars from Taurus indicates this is a transformative period, particularly where you seek to establish security within or through a close relationship.

nov2-copy

SCORPIO: There can be some rearrangement required on the job, staffing may be shuffled or a project stalls this month. It’s also a second chance to get a project right. The work you are doing now is the stepping stone to promotion or advancement later this Summer into Fall. Give it the required polish and workmanship. Your attention is focused on a key relationship and romance, though with Venus retrograde from the 4th, this too may sidetrack temporarily. A desire for privacy and intimacy can be challenged by your numerous work assignments, which are keeping you so busy right now. Romantic stirrings during the first week will command attention. You sense your true love through a psychic bond or perhaps in a dream. Mercury aids in coming to terms with what needs to be resolved in a work situation after the 14th and a New Moon signals a clearer sense of direction on the 27th. Events this day also stimulate a very romantic awakening for you and your partner. Find a way to balance work and pleasure this month, but certainly carve out some time for a special connection on this marvelous day.

dec2-copy

SAGITTARIUS: A love relationship or creative project can sidetrack, as Venus retrograde from the 4th deters progress over the next 6 weeks. A prior commitment could prove a stumbling block for the attainment of your desires. You enter a hard working phase from the 11th, as Mars transits Taurus. A new job or assignment can keep you very busy or you may be looking for work through April. Exercise or sports can be very beneficial at this time as well and if you had not kept a New Year resolution for fitness there’s no time like the present! A New Moon on the 27th signals a bold new direction for you, though this one may not fully come together until May. A domestic issue is going to require your attention next month. Enjoy the creative vibes from the 14th, you will excel at writing projects through April. Work from home business can thrive on the 27th. Your creativity plays a role.

jan2-copy

CAPRICORN: Residential matters require reassessment, it’s possible a financial shortfall or an issue with a female family member impedes your progress. You get clarity about your desires from the New Moon on the 27th, and all will be reconciled in May. Erotic and creative energy is stimulated from the ingress of Mars in Taurus on March 12. You’ll be feeling frisky and fancy free. Take this time to work on an artistic project or cultivate your love connection. Socially this is a good time to connect and reconnect with friends. Networking and communications are highlighted on the 1st, 4th and 8th. Strong intuition or creativity is featured on the 27th. This could make for a very pleasurable experience in a love relationship. You get fresh professional impulses and continue to develop on opportunities that were presented late last year around the 2nd of the month. Keep going.

feb2-copy

AQUARIUS: You may have felt you were getting to the bottom of a huge problem, only to find your solution may be invalid. A tricky cycle for love and finance from the Venus retrograde on the 4th (lasting through the middle of next month) signals unfinished business needs attending. Vibes are good otherwise, and finances will continue to be a principal topic or concern for you over the next few weeks. The 6th and 8th are great for negotiation or making a budget. You may be forced to cut corners on the 12th or 17th, meanwhile, and these dates will reveal shortages where they really need to be addressed. Despite Venus coasting backwards, your mind is sharp and you can be inspired and downright convincing from the 24th – 29th. Excitement prevails over uncertainty. Domestic life requires attention from the 10th, though you will get a lot of support here where you need it to make changes to your residence or with those you share your home.

march2-copy

PISCES: Venus retrograde on the 4th (through the middle of next month) signals a redux is required where financial security is sought. Progress can be made on the 5th, and a direction worth considering will be revealed around the 25th. This reappraisal comes under otherwise incredibly positive influences, especially after the 11th, when Mars enters Taurus and stimulates interaction, making daily life much more exciting. Conversations and agreements on the 18th, 26th and 29th hold water, and there is no need to hold back contracts, unless your heart simply isn’t in it.  Professional turning points are likely on the 12th and 17th. You have to reconfigure yourself somehow to make the most of these valuable opportunities. The Full Moon on the 12th signals a completion or culmination in a relationship. Both Saturn and Pluto are present here, so developments are forged around awareness of a long range goal, while very passionate overtones preside. New financial ground is broken after the 27th, as a New Moon opens a door. Outside sources of income are also a topic this month, issues from the end of last year are revisited.

STARGAZER ASTROLOGY FORECAST March 15th – 21st, 2015

ASTROLOGICAL NEW YEAR 2015!!!

(*photo credit: http://lightpaintingphotography.com/light-painting-photography/light-painting-break-down-mart-barras/)

For a personalized reading based on your chart, contact STARGAZER at stargazerastroatlas@gmail.com

If you found the first few months to be a downer, fret not! The astrological New Year begins on Friday at 6:45 pm (EST) with an exciting dual transit of Moon and Sun through Aries very shortly after a Pisces Solar Eclipse, signaling a massive shift in consciousness. Vitalization, passion and the revival of spirit come into frame brilliantly, after we cross the final hurdle of the last Uranus – Pluto square, that is! The overall theme is one of renewal and beginnings, regardless of where you are in the world, and whether it is Spring or Fall Equinox where you live.

Two really major factors predominate the astro-scape this week signifying a pivotal change of direction for some, and a total break through, or break down for others. We get to the final of seven Uranus – Pluto squares that have been occurring between Capricorn (Pluto) and Aries (Uranus) since 2012 on Monday. Shifting and challenging conditions have made certain elements of our lives very difficult to pin down, and there is a palpable necessity at this time to make a transformative shift in priorities. Situations on the world stage continue to escalate, as circumstances implicating society at large or within our personal sphere may completely implode, though if so, this situation has likely been percolating for years. The area of your life you have sought to revolutionize (Uranus,) since 2011 has been challenged by big picture circumstances that may have left you feeling completely powerless (Pluto). It has been an exhausting process, but of course, there can be a substantial breakthrough at this time as well, though events will likely take us pretty far out of our comfort zone regardless of the final destination. Transformation and adaptation is required under these auspices, though complete regeneration will be the reward. Take things one step at a time if matters reach a crisis point and keep daily life as uncomplicated as possible for the time being. The dates of the prior aspects were:

June 6-July 9, 2012; 8 Degrees Aries/Capricorn
September 18-October 1, 2012; 6 -7 Degrees
May 15-Jun 1, 2013; 11 Degrees
October 17-November 15, 2013; 9 Degrees
April 12-29, 2014; 12 – 13 Degrees
November 26-December 27, 2014; 12 Degrees
March 11-28, 2015; 15 Degrees

As you can see, there is a pretty tight focus here between 8 – 15 degrees, so if you have chart factors here (or equally in Libra or Cancer) you were far more personally impacted by these transits. We’ll continue to feel the resonance of this final one for a few more months, as the Libra eclipse next month, then the Capricorn/Cancer Lunations in July, continue to stir up some dynamic indications connected to the upheaval and cathartic intonations of events likely to occur at this final phase. There can be pressure or tension from an outside source, and even outright power struggles or a very confrontational episode with Pluto involved. Mutually, this can be the catalyst for changes we have sought since 2012 and offer a quantum leap forward. Indications we got, or efforts put fourth last week, during the transit of Mars to this critical alinement, will be consequential here, as will the transit of the Sun on the 6th – 7th in April.

At the far end of the week, we receive a Solar Eclipse at 29′ 27″ Pisces (Friday March 20th at 5:36am EST), the first of a series on the Pisces/Virgo axis that will continue through Spring of 2017. The Nodal axis (our evolutionary consciousness) will shift onto Virgo (North Node Future)/Pisces (South Node Past) in October of this year. Eclipses have a much greater personal impact if they fall in a six degree range of an angle or planet in your chart, and it is also worthwhile to see if the Nodes recently have changed astrological houses (based on your rising sign) as this will be the first eclipse occurring in this house, triggering dynamic flows of energy and ushering a vital new beginning in this area for your life, (although the South Node is still transiting Aries). Events feel fateful and we may encounter new relationships that feel incredibly karmic at this time. This particular eclipse harmonizes exclusively with Saturn, recently retrograde at 4 Sagittarius, so initiations and endeavors made in the coming two weeks tie right into our long range goals and enterprises. With Saturn hanging on in trine to the degree of the eclipse from mid June – mid September, it’s fair to say what begins to develop now has a pretty significant role in the overall story we will ultimately tell in 2015. This is a harmonizing angle, so we receive support and reinforcement for this goal for a good duration, though it will require discipline and hard work to bring our endeavors to a successful outcome.

The Sun bursts into the pioneering dominion of Aries about 12 hours after the Eclipse, beginning the astrological New Year. We’ll seek to take direct action towards the goals and objectives we have recently become aware of and seek a vital and effective outlet for the energy stimulated over the next month. Mercury lags behind, lolling about in Pisces after a stimulating, but lengthy visit and retrograde period in Aquarius. A connection to Saturn early in the week may trigger feelings of pessimism as a conversation or realization indicates a necessity to come into realignment to reality. (Count Monday out for your major initiatives, if you can!). Midweek is highly inspirational, as a Moon, Mercury and Neptune all conspire sensationally for a creative undertaking harmonizing intellect and intuition beautifully – it is possible to really connect to the spirit and visionary realm or express the deepest emotions, perhaps even wordlessly. Music and the aesthetic forms will all provide deep stimulation.

Venus moves into sensual Taurus on Tuesday, and we’ll seek to ground our romantic and creative impulses into a tangible form. Taurus – Venus offers practicality and stability for our financial affairs as well as stimulating a desire towards accumulation and possessions. The aesthetic nature is refined and the material world, as well as the sensations it engenders, provides pleasure and respite during an otherwise potentially tumultuous week. We have the option to walk the garden path and engage productively with patience and determination now.

STARGAZER WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

**Get the most out of your forecast by reading for your Sun sign as well as Ascendant, or Rising Sign. You can get your chart for free on astro.com**

ARIES: There can be a breakthrough in your profession at this time, and where you have remained determined to transform your responsibilities in order to achieve status, you may find the pay off comes in at this time. You might also find that your desire for freedom is challenged by your career obligations or restrictive circumstances. A conflict you experience personally could galvanize you towards a fundamental reorientation to a goal that is bigger than yourself, perhaps connected to a social or revolutionary cause that motivates you to action as a result of your own developing consciousness. Those of you born between April 1 -9 or with angles or planets falling between 10 – 18 degrees of the sign will feel this most acutely. Venus leaves your sign Tuesday, indicating a favorable period to address your values and earnings, perhaps finding good fortune or new opportunities associated with creativity, the arts or through a partner may be featured over the next month. Intuition will be very strong in this phase and you do well to engage in reflection or meditation. A dream can be particularly revealing mid week, or during the eclipse phase. It’s truly time to leave behind limiting circumstances, and begin a process of renewal. The Sun in your sign from Friday promises much is in store for you and galvanizes you towards new experiences and boundless frontiers, Happy Birthday!

TAURUS: There could be a breakthrough this week for you, related to higher education, travel, teaching or training, though dynamics going on behind the scenes play a strange role, and could skew the perspective somehow. There could be a pivotal – even disruptive situation involving a secret that is revealed in this phase. Your health may be implicated, as well, and if you have not been getting appropriate amounts of rest there can be challenging indications. Venus comes to the rescue, padding your landing with a gentle and generous transit of your sign beginning Tuesday. It will become easier to address your needs and find satisfaction and pleasure in the coming phase. Relationships with friends and groups or organizations you work with will also be enhanced as Mercury transits this area, allowing you to leave behind the critical work of the prior phase in which professional obligations were emphasized. Catching up with people you have been too busy to see, events and parties may all play a positive role in the upcoming period as well. The Eclipse Friday can bring you into a whole new group of friends or associates that will play a major role in your future. An intimate partner may offer this introduction, or you may be cultivating a serious relationship with someone who you meet through this group, a development that plays out through the Summer into Fall.

GEMINI: Very significant developments occur in your professional life this week, and a new opportunity may be on offer. Pay attention to clues you get midweek, by remaining receptive to intuition you may come to realize what you truly aspire to or discover the path you should take to get there. Mercury in Pisces through the end of the month indicates a great deal of conversation and negotiation will likely transpire in relationship to your goals and enhance your career prospects. The Friday Eclipse augments a major shift of consciousness, the next six months will be revealing of where your best course of action can be taken. It seems a relationship may be guiding your destiny through the Autumn months, you may change your direction and take work in a new city to be close to someone you care for, or a business partner may be playing a substantial role in helping you. Meanwhile there can be discord or disagreements where matters of joint finance are implicated, as arrangements pertaining to the division of assets or in relation to a loan, legacy or grant can be complicated by unexpected or unforeseen development. This has the potential to hinder your hopes and aspirations, and will require some intensive negotiation. Venus from Taurus suggests you benefit from relaxation and reflection over the coming weeks. A relationship may unfold behind the scenes or you may find yourself mulling over someone from the past and idealizing a circumstance or person you have not seen in a long time. Closure is possible in this phase, and there may be an ending, though new beginnings also transpire, especially in relation to friends in the coming weeks.

CANCER: A dynamic culmination occurs in your professional life, which will deeply impact a relationship, for better or worse. Volatile energy and changes in your life direction over the past few years may reach a critical point of transformation in this period, especially where push has come to shove and circumstances have become unbearable. It’s also possible you make a real breakthrough, and a business partner or spouse will either show you the way through, or obstinately challenge your decision towards a liberated career path. From Friday, the transit of Sun in this area will positively enhance your reputation, and you will be able to take back the reigns on your aspirations for success and recognition to better results. Friends help you through the rockier patches, and social events and activities will present wonderful opportunities for loving and affectionate exchanges. An interesting invitation to travel, teach or study abroad may also be a factor around midweek, or during the eclipse period. Mercury in Pisces suggests you will be broadening your perspective, ethical and philosophical boundaries over the coming weeks, either through correspondence with those abroad, or otherwise through actual travel or by engagement through higher educational activities. Clues and intuition are strong midweek and indicate the ability of uncovering a spiritual contact via dream or long distance travel.

LEO: This could prove to be a difficult week for travel, as it seems very unexpected developments occur where you least expect it if you are on the road or within your educational goals, teaching or publishing prospects. A health issue may prove the culprit, or work assignments could interfere at this time. Far more positive vibrations will come through intimate relationships and through quiet and introspective moments taken with your self or someone you are deeply involved with. This could apply equally to a relationship with a spouse or business partner, as negotiations surrounding shared resources or responsibilities within a partnership become integral over the coming weeks while Mercury transits Pisces. An inspirational development midweek could catalyze a deeply spiritual bond through mutual love and trust. This is merely a prelude to the sensational eclipse on Friday, which offers further stimulation to connect on a meaningful level. There is longevity implied within a commitment made at this time, though the pace of a relationship will likely be slow and steady, with a significant culmination in store by November. The Sun from Aries puts you right in your comfort zone, for the first time all year you feel you are beginning to truly come into your own. Venus from Taurus enhances your reputation and can assist you in achieving your professional goals or aspirations. You may find improved conditions towards authority figures and feel vitalized as you embrace your destiny.

VIRGO: The Pisces eclipse signals major developments in your partnership status, whether you are married, single or it’s already complicated, changes are on queue. Equally, dramatic events in the conditions in the life of your mate will deeply effect you, and if single, there is the potential to meet someone with whom you feel a deep karmic and cosmic connection. This person may play a very definitive role in your life and you might move in order to be close to someone who comes into your life at this time. The eclipse bears on your very foundations directly, and while a change in residence may be implied, all the details may not fully come into view, or into play, until this Fall. By then you will be in a more powerful position, for now it seems you must contend with the shifting ebb of the tides. A volatile economic situation may also feature in this phase, and here, too, unexpected events can shift the status quo quite dramatically. An expense related to a child may be a part of the equation, but in some way or fashion someone close with whom you share expenses, (a spouse or business partner) pulls a rabbit out of the hat, and this may have a positive effect in the long run, for now it likely feels destabilizing or somehow indicates a temporary setback. Venus in Taurus will put you at much greater ease, and you will discover affection and even love with someone with whom you can broaden your horizons. A zest for life and some adventures are in store, cast your net wide for exciting experiences.

LIBRA: The foundations of your life and relationships continue to shift as big developments continue to unfold in both residential matters and within a key partnership. Also critical in this phase will be a significant transformation in your work and productivity. You may decamp for a new position or see a huge change at your job, perhaps someone is “eclipsed out” in this phase. Listen to clues and cues midweek, as you may connect with the ideal vision for your work life, or get a positive message of reinforcement you are moving in the right direction for having trusted yourself to engage your creative and visionary nature. Follow your instincts and go with the flows the universe presents. A new assignment or modifications you embrace now will have substantial ramifications to your earnings this Summer. There may be some challenges or shortages, but in the long run the benefits will be substantial and enduring. If you have been seeking outside equity, grants or loans, a positive phase begins when Venus enters Taurus, and you can fully get yourself behind such an effort. Equally impacted are your committed and intimate relationships, and a new romance kindled over these prior weeks can become deeper at this time. Proceed cautiously and don’t get too cozy, as an eclipse in your own sign on route in early April will bring even more fundamental changes! Hang in there!

SCORPIO: Your job, health and work life have been affected pronouncedly by the impact of Uranus transiting this part of your chart since 2011. It has like created unstable, but at times exhilarating conditions, in your work continuity and productivity. One of the effects of this transit is the urge to liberation in this arena of your life, too seek an authentic expression of your self and talents through the work you do and through your lifestyle. Pluto began a long and testing passage against your efforts in this arena in mid 2012, (see the exact dates above, in the summary,) with the final card being dealt this Monday. There is a highly caustic, oppressive quality to these alignments, and this feels very personal to you, as Pluto is your ruler and the expression of it’s energy is in fact deeply connected to your authenticity. This pattern of experience has been challenging at best as your desire to have more freedom in your lifestyle has been so severely compromised by powerful forces over which you have had little control. Coupled with the transit of Saturn in your sign and this has been a double whammy of contentious and thoroughly frustrating circumstances. But Scorpio has a secret weapon this year, the brilliant assistance of Jupiter in your 10th house offering the liberation you seek through your chosen path of professional ambition. No evidence yet? Wait a few more weeks till Jupiter goes direct. And if things get prickly on Monday, keep in mind Pluto is affecting the house of communication and learning. Remove your ego, keep the flows of communication open and be willing to learn. In other news: Spring has sprung and love is in the air! Venus from Taurus as well as an eclipse in the house of True Romance have much in store for you! Tune into the auspicious nuances midweek for what is in store. xoxo!

SAGITTARIUS: If you have wondered why the source and flow of creativity and pleasure has been blocked or constrained you need look no further than the usual culprits: Uranus and Pluto, which have had a very antagonistic relationship for the last three years. Your deeply evolving values and connection to money, resources and how you earn them have played a very substantial role in this dynamic, and while meaningful self expression, love and recreational activities equally demand authentic and spontaneous expression (Uranus), the changes of perspective you are undergoing mutually need to be addressed as well. This final alinement may produce a result for you in this arena, or just add more questions, though Jupiter plays a very supportive role to get you back in the game, more notably after it resumes direct motion next month, and again in June, when trine Uranus again. You’ll find more and more over the coming months that demonstrable growth is very possible, and that priorities are soon able to shift away from foundation building and personal assets to more enthusiastic and adventurous opportunities that will present themselves. Health and productivity will be positively enhanced as Venus transits Taurus, and you will have positive relations with those with whom you work. This is also an effective time for therapies and remedies associated with improving your well being. The home and living arrangements will be going through some massive new developments as well, as your professional realm is about to undergo a major growth spurt that applies directly to your residential situation. Look to a stunning insight or intuition midweek, as well as the developments around Friday’s eclipse for clues.

CAPRICORN: Fundamental shifts have been occurring in the bedrock of your existence for years, at times a very challenging and frustrating process, though at others a positive and significant transformation from who were into who you have become. The last of these critical alinements occurs on Monday, and you may find either you have simply had enough of circumstances, or that you reach a necessary and crucial breakthrough in your life at this time. Events, awareness and circumstances will likely be shifting things and reverberating in your subconscious for some time, particularly around the time of the Libra eclipse early next month, which has a major impact for you professionally. A good thought for the time being is to simplify life as much as possible, and to not make any unnecessary commitments, as things are changing swiftly and unexpectedly. The far sweeter news this week pertains to matters of the heart, as gentle Venus passes through the area of True Romance, you may find you can sweeten the deal with a new love connection or romantic liaison. Really enticing upcoming aspects will open the doors to finding the affection you seek. For now Venus opens your heart to the possibility, enhancing creativity and pleasure. The Pisces eclipse can offer very exciting social opportunities, and agreement or contract may also be featured. The upcoming weeks will indeed be busy with a great deal off communication and connectivity with many people. These contacts will tap right into your innate abilities, and enhance your life productively through the Autumn months. What you say and the people you make agreements with at this time will prove highly satisfying.

AQUARIUS: Where weight and restriction has been present you will seek out change. This has as much to do with your thinking as it does the people with whom you share, work and play and more so the people in your daily life who inspire you to take a chance and act on convictions now through a positive conversation or suggestion. There is a compelling need to move forward and be understood. What seems to be holding you back comes from the place of secrets and mystery, possibly a toxic essence playing out behind the scenes. Your subconscious nature is changing, and compulsive thinking can be producing weird, or unusual affects on your private life. Strong cues from the environment are likely suggesting to let these go, and it is probably time to exorcise these and let them die a natural death. You are ready! Really stunning financial indications can be on tap towards the end of the week, and there could be a wonderful opportunity in store around the time of the eclipse. Intimations and creative aspirations which have inspired you over the past few months could culminate now in an offer that brings prosperity, possibly connected to your profession. The residential and personal life see a very positive upswing in the coming weeks as Venus begins a transit of Taurus. You can easily beautify and find pleasure in your surroundings, and a close love relationship can unfold within the comforts of home. Invite someone you would like to get closer to over for a nice meal to make the most of this energy. You may find you connect quite beautifully when you can share your personal space and history (and vice versa) with someone in this phase. Also a good time for reconnecting to family.

PISCES: Venus from Taurus sextiles your Sign, a stunning harmonic that allows things to open up beautifully and suggesting that positive serendipities bring forth opportunity with a minimum of effort at this time. Mercury from your sign augments your position as you can easily articulate yourself and your desires quite readily in this phase. The Moon transiting your sign mid week allows for a brilliant flow of inspiration, and you can tap the source of creative mojo and the visionary abilities you inherently possess. This culminates for you in an eclipse in your sign Friday, and you are ready to encounter new attributes of yourself that had previously been submerged or difficult to define. A part of this process is associated with your evolving professional pathway and the slow but steady progress you have been making in your career. Through this awareness there will be a need or desire to redefine your persona as required by the achievements and aspirations you seek to attain. This will be a process that endures through the upcoming months, with a remarkable transformation of your identity by this Fall. The interpersonal dynamics are affected by this, and it is likely your closest relationships will altered as a result of the personal awareness you encounter over the upcoming two years. The Uranus – Pluto square challenges your foundations. There may be a contentious financial issue to deal with at the beginning of the week, your assertion to independence in regard to how you earn and spend your income is going to come into play. One final chess move can get you to liberation. The choice is yours.

STARGAZER MARCH 2015 FORECAST

THE BIG BANG

Activity of seismic proportion is in store as major shifts and reorientation is required on many levels for all signs. The most potent developments occur in the first half, but don’t discount the groundbreaking effects of the final Uranus – Pluto square on the 16th, as well as the Lunar Eclipse in Pisces on the 20th, signaling a new direction in the dynamics as the Lunar Nodes prepare to move off the Aries – Libra axis in a few months. The pace this month is brisk and intense, with opportunities to transform stagnant situations if you are ready to adapt to change. All of this becomes clear next month, as an eclipse in Libra (April 4th) brings all the issues right to the forefront. It’s time for change.

The second of three Jupiter – Uranus trines occurs on the 3rd, creating an optimal environment for substantial growth and positive developments. The Moon from Leo will be collaborating very effectively at this time as well, and there will be an urgency towards making our most exciting prospects for love, creativity and expression come true. Working in an innovative way will produce the most beneficial outcomes, think outside the box and dare to dream big! Venus (March 4th) then Mars (March 10th – 11th) tap into the trine as they conjunct Uranus in Aries and trine Jupiter simultaneously. There is a desire for emancipation from restrictions and a quest for freedom in our activities and relationships under these aspects, and the timetable on the agenda (where Aries sits in your chart) will be impacted very auspiciously and dynamically. Pluto has other ideas, however, and weighs in from Capricorn, challenging our efforts and forcing a modification to our outlook. It will be instrumental in this period to be willing to transform in a significant area of our lives so we can make the most of the opportunities on hand. A lot of people will be leaving their comfort zone in this period, but the universe favors this now, so get out there! This of course precipitates the impact of the Uranus – Pluto square, which will bring up an issue that has likely tested us for several years. This energy will last for a few more months, not really dissipating until this Fall. Where change has been needed and perhaps even required, we will be forced to quickly acclimate to a new order. The Libra eclipse next month hinges on this and will act as a critical catalyst for upheaval, demanding a conclusive and decisive act on our behalf. Where change occurs at this time, it has been crystalizing for a great deal of time, likely since the beginning of last year. How and with whom we relate on a one on one level is the most likely affected, with a cathartic event on the horizon for these partnerships, both new and old.

It will be important to be mindful, particularly in the first half of the month, during the conjunctions of planets in Aries to the South Lunar Node. (A full list of these transits was published in the Stargazer New Year forecast at the beginning of the year.) On one hand, very karmic and fated incidents will likely occur on these dates as we work off old karmic debts, but it can be a hazardous and challenging atmosphere where it will be all too easy to slip into negative behavior patterns, particularly in relation to aggression, anger and frustration. A more productive use of Aries energy is to pursue new frontiers fearlessly. With so much positive energy culminating in this area, this is the way to go, and to get ahead. It’s a VERY RARE configuration, as Uranus and Jupiter are so sensationally aligned, there can be propitious movement this month towards substantial growth and brilliant goals. When the Sun passes over these degrees of the zodiac in the first week of April, we can drive it all home and meet with incredible success.

The Sun in Aries from the 20th represents the astrological New Year, as new beginnings and an awakening to vitality become emphasized. All the ground work we have laid down through the transits of Venus and Mars, particularly through relationships and augmented by the endurance and structural support offered by Saturn, can now be put into immediate motion. A New Moon Eclipse in Pisces this same day is the trigger that sets off a brilliant new cycle of activity. Wednesday the 25th sees the Sun trine Saturn and offers the stability required to put our endeavors on solid footing. Saturn is retrograde from March 14th – August 2nd, crossing through the late degrees of Scorpio again during the Summer months. It’s a period during which we get the return on what we have put in in regard to work we have done since the prior retrograde phase, which ended July 20th, 2014.
