Weekly Horoscopes 2/4 – 2/10

The week begins on a sensitive vibration – Sun combines with Neptune, revealing an illusion or matter that may have been obscured by a desire to see things as one wanted to and not really for what they are. If shortcuts have been taken in the hope things would just work out on their own, a problem may appear. It’s time to let go of what isn’t working and find a fresh source of inspiration. This is the beginning of a new cycle related to connected to spiritual, romantic and creative idealism. Clarify your best case scenario through your imagination or meditation and move forward and away from unfulfilling relationships or circumstances. Better prospects are on the horizon.

Mercury and Venus link up in a conjunction to Chiron offering the potential for healing and boost self esteem. Chiron’ placement tends to reveal something we may feel undeserving of. A conversation and some self care and treating yourself with more tenderness and less judgement can go a long way towards turning perception about personal shortcomings around. You deserve it (what ever it is) and are good enough to get it. Chiron is preparing to ingress into Aries next month, but will retrograde and transit over these late degrees of Pisces over the last months of the year. This is a positive time to make peace with what might seem like a deficiency and turn it into a personal asset. Examine where you can transform disappointment into wisdom. Making a mistake in judgment and learning from it liberates you from having to go through that again if you choose to respond differently moving forward.

Mid week will see the Scorpio moon link up with Jupiter, shortly before Jupiter retrogrades on Thursday. Through July, it’s possible to reconsider the choices and cultivate the seeds sown since December (when Jupiter entered it’s retrograde shadow). Some of the intensity and urgency towards growth slows now, and it’s worth while to see where and what has been made of the opportunity Jupiter in Scorpio represents, i.e have you engaged the potential for deep transformation? How much have you absorbed from the experience and how can the choices you might make in the future allow you to absorb more of what you actually want by being more discriminate in what you take on? Both truth and emotional sensitivity are required. Between now and July it’s possible to actually develop one or two really important objectives – by limiting and cutting back on so many options, you can more readily focus energy into cultivating something significant. Events and intuition stimulated early Wednesday can signal what is most important to your soul evolution.

There is a hugely palpable shift in energy on Tuesday as Mercury and Venus move into Aries, enlivening and breathing new life into the atmosphere. Much like the forest regenerates itself through fire (those naturally occurring, anyhow) to clear the detritus and stimulate new growth, there is the potential now clear the way for exciting new developments and prospects ahead. The 4th Quarter Moon in Sagittarius on Friday is close to Mars and fresh initiative is experienced through engagement of a positive mindset and clarification of goals for the future.

It’s a short, but action packed month – Leo/Pisces eclipses coupled with very dynamic alinements at the end of February make for highly volatile and electrifying experiences. Changes are to be expected as well as a very brisk pace of activities.

Much of what occurs in February pivots on the Leo 22’ 28” eclipse on the 10th. A great deal of energy is generated at this moment, especially since the Moon connects to Saturn – Sagittarius and Uranus – Aries in a brilliant fire trine. Here we are able to take tempered action on long range initiatives in an innovative manner. Sun and Jupiter also tie into this alignment adding a highly auspicious overtone to our enterprises in this phase. Despite being a somewhat mild eclipse, coupled within this configuration it manages to stimulate a lot of action and initiative (fire) especially where a creative (Leo) or technical/social (Aquarius) theme can be expressed.

The early weeks of the month bustle with activity, Venus and Mars in Aries contribute to a dynamic, go getter atmosphere while the Aquarius Sun enables us to seek out new ways of doing things, and to socialize and express ideals. The entire period around the time of the eclipse is vitalizing, as the Sun connects with Uranus and Jupiter, adding a very positive spin to culminating events.

Jupiter will retrograde on the 6th, a period of contraction that will last through June 9th. As Jupiter heads backwards in Libra, we have the opportunity to integrate the growth that has occurred since last August. For those who have been swept up in a whirlwind of expansive opportunity since, you’ll find a few months reprieve (through June 9th) to make good on what has been offered and to take those lucky breaks for what they are worth. Mutually, where we may have over done things or exploited a bounty we may find shortfall. Jupiter is more of an attitude that begets prosperity, while Venus is the tangible result of it, and with both in retrograde (Venus from March 4th), there may be a belt tightening phase ahead as we revamp and reevaluate our resources, material and otherwise.

Venus begins the month already in the shadow of it’s upcoming retro phase next month, so it’s likely the financial, relational and even creative/aesthetic (Venus rules art) topics we have been working on since January 29th, and continuing through the month will be up for reassessment or renegotiation through mid May. So much of this particular retrograde cycle pivots on the Venus – Saturn square, and you may look to events or developments that occurred January 27th for clues as to the major topics that will require your attention. Something critical must be overcome in our quest to attain pleasure, love and abundance and this will be the predominant theme through April, especially on the 8th and 21st of that month. Themes of duty and responsibility resonate intensely during this period, and as any retro phase suggests, unfinished business. We have to live up to the promises we have made and this testing influence will require we resolve any outstanding commitments or fulfill karmic contracts before we can move forward.

From the 18th Sun in Pisces will offer an intuitive and sensitive ambience, the psychic realm is open and we’ll feel more emotional attunement. The Pisces 8’ 12” Solar eclipse on the 26th will link to idealistic Neptune, generating a wishful, hopeful energy. What may have been lost or sacrificed in the challenging periods that afflicted Neptune last year, can now be reclaimed, or ideals are allowed to take on a new form, as this linkage provides a chance to dream and seek the compassionate, selfless expression that was in short supply throughout 2016. For some this will take form within a love relationship, for others a project may come up through which they can express an ideal. Spiritual topics will be important, and this fresh stimulation to our humanity or taking care of those less fortunate may be a feature of developments during the eclipse.

Sun to Pisces South Node on the 22nd, followed by Mercury on the 28th will additionally reveal where endings are required. A shift in attitude or releasing ineffective behavioral patterns will be likely as we come to terms with the realization that certain circumstances no longer serve our evolutionary drives. Since Pisces influences the South Node, it’s likely that we have to reconcile an issue connected to evasive or nebulous ways in which we handle things. Situations or intentions that have been opaque now require clarity. The Nodes are coming close to completing the their tour of the Pisces – Virgo axis, moving on to Aquarius – Leo in early May. Interesting timing that the Venus retrograde shadow phase ends around the same time as this substantial shift in consciousness. We’ll be mining through some pretty dank issues between now and then, but from mid May – a really fresh start is possible. Commit yourself to deal with matters honestly and honor the work required of you in this period whether it be tangible or spiritual in it’s nature. Treasures await those who do so.

The final week is the most combust, as Mars from warrior sign Aries (it’s natural rulership,) tangles with ruthless Pluto (on the 22nd), joins forces with liberator Uranus (on the 26th, same day as the eclipse) and opposes Jupiter on the 27th. It’s a very potent phase for very rapid evolution and sudden changes. Bold action is favored right now, but watch for power struggles during the Mars – Pluto square. Where circumstances or an individual may come across as obstinate, choose to transform yourself instead. Mars conjunct Uranus will provide an opportunity to engage a new pathway to freedom and liberation. As Jupiter moves backwards, it again engages Uranus in an opposition at the beginning of next month. We’ll see developments within storylines that were stimulated towards the end of December 2016, though of course this story does not come complete until August.





ARIES: Venus and Mars transiting your sign make you magnetic, it is easy to go after AND receive what you seek in this phase. Friendships and alliances are highly supportive and the social schedule is busting in this phase as well. A key introduction on the 11th can open the doors to a meaningful relationship. With a Venus retrograde looming, there may be a few delays or obstacles to the complete fulfillment of your desires, but hang tight and you will get there (in May). A dynamic Leo eclipse on the 10th infuses you with energy and positivity for the future. Creative and personal projects are enhanced, and a love relationship may feature largely. You may clash with a partner at the end of the month. Consider the other’s perspective while you move boldly into new territory on the 26th and 27th. There can be power struggles on the 22nd, courtesy of a challenging Pluto aspect. Listen and learn. Release the past on the 26th. You can be free.


TAURUS: This is a dynamic month for residential matters, and you may be getting news of, or making a significant relocation. A potent Eclipse on the 10th sends strong vibrations through your most personal emotional and intuitive space. Most of the activity takes place behind the scenes this month, with the 22nd – 27th super charged dates for interesting experiences through which you discover secret or hidden reservoirs of energy or talent within yourself. Premonitions will be strong at this time, and you’ll get flashes of incredible insight. Meanwhile, professional matters continue to culminate and this is a good time to start laying the groundwork for the bigger developments that come in at the end of the year. An assignment or position you take now can help you cultivate skills and the public profile required to make a big change next year.


GEMINI: The eclipse on the 26th points you in the direction of a new professional objective. Your vision becomes revitalized and inspiration leads the way, especially if there were disappointments or set backs last year. It may take a few months to see it all come together and get it’s wings, but clues or indications you get now will prove to be significant. Socially this will be a vital time with many events and parties to attend. The end of the month is incredibly exciting, especially if your are working on a group project. Mercury in Aquarius (Feb. 8 – 26) is very positive for you as well, with the 10th, 16th, 20th, 21st and 23rd all very favorable for travel, educational pursuits, writing and exams. Jupiter retrograde on the 6th can see a down shift in energy for a personal creative project or in a love relationship for a few months.


CANCER: The Leo eclipse on the 10th opens the doors to major changes in your financial status and you may get a lucrative professional offer or start to earn more from within your chosen field. A slow and steady work ethic also presides over these developments and you are beginning to see the results of of your long range efforts bearing fruit. Venus and Mars activate your professional realm, offering you stamina to pursue your ambitions. The last week of the month (especially around the 26th and 27th) are real go-for-it moments, you are definitely on the radar of those who can help you up the ladder of success, or better yet – get out there and make your own opportunities. A conversation or insight on the 20th points you in the right direction. With Venus in retrograde shadow, anticipate in advance what you are working on now will be rebooted in May. Completion and success will come closer to your birthday.


LEO: Your sense of adventure is stirred deeply this month, particularly in the last week. A Lunar Eclipse in your sign on the 10th can signal sudden and sweeping changes – many of which will be positive, but perhaps, initially overwhelming. A partner or colleague can offer very meaningful advice and assurance at this time. Expect nothing less than a personal revolution! A relationship can take off now as well. Conversation with your spouse or a business advisor will prove to be extremely helpful. There can be volatile influences at work around the 22nd, watch your temper, as a situation can escalate into a fight or accident. You’ll seek to take flight over the 26th or 27th, an unexpected voyage may be in store!


VIRGO: The emphasis shifts to deep and within. A strong urge to transform through or within a relationship is possible and events on the 26th, under the auspices of the eclipse in Pisces, will reveal your heart’s desire, even if is is only know to you at this time. The future of a partnership has yet to be established, and you might have to go back to the drawing board on a money making scheme. An inheritance, grant or loan can be expedited at the end of the month, this one falls right out of the sky. Changing your relationship to your feelings of self worth and the security you expect to receive from another is a critical feature of what culminates at this time. The 26th and 27th can be volatile for financial matters.


LIBRA: A great deal of energy culminates through and within your partnerships this month, as a Lunar Eclipse on the 10th triggers a chain reaction impacting your relationships for both business and pleasure. Agreements could be forthcoming in this period, but also tentative, as Jupiter down shifts into low gear, entering it’s retrograde phase on the 6th. Venus in retrograde shadow highlights your relationships, but you may also sense intuitively that it may take a bit longer to get things off the ground. Stunning developments at the end of the month can take you by surprise! Partnership is very stimulating in this phase, and this is a good time for exploring your options, with the intent to seal the deal and leverage your preference in May. Some work around or releasing yourself from a prior commitment may be required before you take that leap of faith!


SCORPIO: The Lunar Eclipse on the 10th sends shock waves through your professional world. One path is ending so a new one can begin in August. You’ll choose to implement changes slowly, though the ambience is supercharged and energizing in this moment. You are likely working hard this month into next, and the projects you are taking on now are likely going to move you up the ladder to your next phase of success. The final week of the month is exciting and somewhat volatile. Electrifying currents propel you to innovative solutions and a situation, especially at work, can change swiftly and unexpectedly. Events may be unsettling, but seek to help you express greater authenticity and freedom through your job or productivity. A love relationship begins or experiences renewal as the Pisces eclipse stimulates fresh impulses in your romantic life on the 26th. Dreams can come true in this incredible phase. Release outmoded tactics on the 22nd and 28th.


SAGITTARIUS: This will be a very dynamic and exciting month for you. Romance could have you buzzing or creative activities can be very pleasurable at this time. While a separation is possible in March – April (and it may be an issue completely outside of the relationship altogether) you’ll see the seeds you plant now come to beautiful fruition in May. Socially this is also a vibrant period and daily life will be very busy, especially after the 8th. The 11th, 16th, 20th and 21st are all favorable for scheduling events and meetings. A group or organization you work with can use your input. There can be a financial challenge or shortfall on the 22nd. It’s possible there are expenses connected to your child that is a setback. The Leo eclipse on the 10th is incredible, triggering a phase of remarkable personal development for you. Consider a fire ritual to get in touch with your spirit side and consecrate this dynamic flow of abundance energy. A new frontier ushers in on the 26th. The next 6 months will offer some vital opportunities to create a new home base for yourself.


CAPRICORN: Financial shifts are highlighted this month, and a loan, venture capital or a spouse’s income is becoming a big feature, with incredible developments around the Leo Eclipse on the 10th. This very auspicious Full Moon will trigger incredible insight and your instincts will be very strong about this, trust the feelings. A key partnership may be transformative for you and intimacy is also highlighted. The residence and personal life are going through big changes now as well and you might be moving or making big adjustments at home. Your authority is challenged on the 22nd. Dynamic and sudden events around the 26th and 27th could be connected to your professional aspirations. These may see some detours through June 10, as Jupiter retrogrades. Look at the opportunities present since last Fall and follow up on the leads you have cultivated.


AQUARIUS: Big things are culminating within a partnership and you may meet the love of your life, and/or tie the knot under these wildly exciting influences. The Lunar Eclipse on the 10th speaks to commitment and what, as well as whom – the future holds. A commitment you make can really endure at this time, maybe an older person holds the key to your happiness. Mercury in your sign from the 8th can make you a bit of a social butterfly, and vitalizing contacts on the 10th, 16th and 21st will be very exciting for you! The end of the month is vitalizing, and you may be meeting many new people in this period or presenting a written project to the world. A second eclipse (in Pisces, on the 26th) ushers in a new mode of earnings, old trends and limitations on your income are dying out. Inspiration presides and you can take what guides you now and build towards the future. Opportunities revealed towards the end of the year can connect to what is developing now, so follow your muse.


PISCES: It’s a month of change and transitions. A job or professional matter may be at the thrust of this, and you are seeing closure in a way of life, associated with your health or productivity in this period. Financial indications are strong, especially in the last week where a new source of unexpected income could rise up unexpectedly. Keep an eye on those price tags, meanwhile, as Venus soon to be retrograde phase is approaching and there can be shortfalls if you don’t keep on guard with your expenditures. A Solar Eclipse in your sign on the 26th signals how far you have come over the last year and a half – likely a long, long way! Tune into your future and phase out the past, you are soon going to reach a crucial and defining turning point. The 22nd and 28th reveal much about what you still need to release.

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


aries new moon 2016

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

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

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

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


Screen Shot 2016-03-31 at 2.41.53 PM

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


New Beginnings

The final week of this month portends big beginnings, particularly within relationships and through creative enterprises. The momentous merger of Venus and Mars in Aries on Sunday elicits a massive dose of motivation as we awaken urgenty to desire and affection. Zest and passion underscore developments now and where there has been a feeling of limitation or even pessimism, enthusiasm and dynamic opportunities begin to replace the harsher realities we have confronted. The Saturn cycle is deeply emphasized, as Venus and Mars connect harmoniously this week to the planet of structure, planning, and long range efforts. The challenging influences that presided over the prior month, particularly in regard to relational efforts and our strategic endeavors, gives way to a very positive flow of activity this week. We have overcome substantial difficulties since mid – January, and the doors are open now to make progress on our personal objectives. With the energy transpiring through fire signs, imagination, action, and intuition will allow us to make the most of the opportunities presented now. Use this remarkable period to double and redouble your efforts towards the achievement of your long range goals. These were likely established last Fall 2014, (Mars conjunct Saturn – August 25th; Venus conjunct Saturn – November 13th) and we now begin to manifest the objectives we put into motion around those dates, which again, underwent a critical period of challenge or reappraisal during January. That Venus and Mars are working together is highly auspicious, indicating a great deal of passion and vitality, as well as a loving spoonful of ease of interaction and luxury through Venus. The asteroid Juno, which presides over commitment and spouses also smiles beneficially on unions forged now, and it’s not unlikely that an alliance that takes hold in this period has the potential to turn into a really significant long range relationship, even a marriage prospect could come into the frame during this period. (See your personal horoscope, below, for “where” you might find this person.)

There is a bit of a reality check to contend with at the onset of the week, but don’t let an abrasive episode Monday (Sun square Saturn) deter you from enjoying the other highly advantageous influences available. A setback that occurs in this phase may require a modification to existing plans, or suggest an oversight, so deal with these quickly and move forward with assurance. Sun – Neptune conjunct mid week can be highly inspiring, but make it difficult to take direct or immediate action. Neptune softens the focus, opening the channels of receptiveness which can yield phenomenal insight, but also sensitizes the ambience in such a way that it can be hard to be very effective. We are still connecting to an ideal, and continue to ask “why not” this ideal. Challenges we confronted on Monday reminded us of the obstacles, by mid week we seek to confront them and reorient ourselves to inspiration and the realization of a visionary objective. (The Mars – Saturn trine, also on Wednesday, will have a lot to say about this, so expect a unique combination of tenacity and intuition to be present simultaneously.)

Jupiter quincunx Pluto on Friday can present a dynamic opportunity, likely connected to a very long range endeavor that was intensively stimulated in April of 2014 and has since seen permutations with critical events occurring in early September of last year. We get another chance at making modifications to this now, with further developments in May as a result of listening to and learning from the influences that are present at this time. The pay off for the hard work comes in mid – October, with a brilliant success story and tangible, economic and personal rewards available if we remain present and available to the suggestions coming our way Friday. This is enhanced significantly by Mercury connecting to the Nodal Axis at the end of the week as well. A feeling of fatedness can accompany a meeting or conversation with strong indications for the future, so keep an open mind – and schedule! It’s going to be an amazing week, and this is only the beginning. March offers even more stellar opportunities, we are just getting started!

ARIES: You are becoming a force to be reckoned with, Aries, as Venus and Mars amplify your desires and charisma simultaneously. There is still benefit from working strategically behind the scenes, as you’ll take notice of on Monday. A longing to move mountains in a creative, academic, publishing, teaching or traveling endeavor begins to show positive signs of activity, and you get the stimulation and assistance you require to build momentum on this over the coming months. This project comes to fruition at the end of October, between now and then there is much to be learned and a process of refinement of the objective that must take place before you lift off. Nonetheless, this is a very vital and auspicious time to push forward on endeavors both personal as well as those you work on with others. The social dimension also sees some liveliness. Mid week sees a shift in perspective about friends and the people you interact with day to day. A writing or learning project goes through a crucial transformation. A partnership matter you have had difficulty with over the last few months or uncertainty about an alliance can be addressed on Friday. A conversation at this time is very revealing, perhaps you were not sure if this person shared your vision for the future and this was an obstacle towards making a commitment. You can clear the air now, discover exactly where this person stands, and move forward. Juno in your house of pleasure and self expression suggests someone with partnership potential is someone you can play with. Children and creativity enhance your desire to make a commitment at this time.

TAURUS: Erotic undertones are strong in this phase, though the energy is coming from way behind the scenes. A fantasy element plays a strong role, indicating you are either imagining the perfect scenario, or carrying it out within the realm of a secret liaison. On a very spiritual level there are significant activations. Your inner dimension and psyche grow tremendously in this phase and you are learning to take responsibility for your need for privacy and stake out your personal space. Your intuition is very strong in this period. Obey your instincts, they will take you precisely where you want to go. The Moon transiting your sign from Sunday PM puts you back into your skin and helps you get in touch with what you really want. Monday is a bit prickly, however, as your hopes and dreams for the future come under the scrutiny of harsher financial realities. Keep the faith and modify your agenda where required. Matters surrounding recent domestic developments may also be challenged towards the end of the week. A desire to travel or return to school may be thwarted by a residential expansion you recently made. You can work on this and get back on track for May. Juno’s transit suggests the one you cherish most deeply is the one you will allow into your home, or the one you would consider living with. Mid week can see you attending to financial matters, particularly those that pertain to your career. A behind the scenes negotiation with a boss or advisor can put you in a much better fiscal position.

GEMINI: You feel a real shift in energy and perspective this week, as your social life and interests pick up considerable speed and momentum. The emphasis on professional matters, meanwhile, remains strong, and you can find allies who will enable and assist you in the pursuit of your desires at this time. It’s possible a meeting or merger with someone with real partnership potential comes your way through the course of your daily activities, as marriage asteroid Juno emphasizes thinking, interaction and communication. If you are in a relationship, you will find yourself making numerous short trips and very busy with your spouse in this period. Parties, events and other social diversions will command your mutual attention, or can bring a winning introduction to single Gemini. Even a new relationship benefits from this energy, as a partnership becomes more substantial and committed through shared activities. A more personal reflection is in order mid week, and you will be able to augment your position in a group or organization very effectively through assertive persuasion. Work and professional matters present a bit more difficulty this week. A partner may speak out about your on the job commitments at this time, or you may find your obligations interfere with your social life. Follow your intuition mid week about a professional enterprise. A stimulating inspiration can show you the way to the path you have been seeking since the beginning of the year. A conversation at the end of the week speaks to your creative passion and brings a very positive development within a love relationship.

CANCER: Professionally you are on fire with incredible developments and very exciting offers in the mix. Very dynamic energies unfolding over the coming weeks will motivate and inspire you to pursue your goals. Hard work is required to make the most of this, but you’ll find it easy to embrace a consistency of pace and regiment that brings enduring success through productive efforts. Creativity enhances your reputation and image, coupled with the daring to take on a project that requires passion and an element of risk. This makes for an unbeatable combination and assures success if you put yourself out there. Residential matters that mutually command your attention come into focus Friday, and you can have a meaningful conversation about relocation or attend to a domestic issue at this time. Intuition is remarkable mid week, and there may be news from a distance you find incredibly inspiring. From Friday morning the Moon transits your sign, and you’ll feel as though you are coming into your own, feeling genuine satisfaction and revitalization. The personal issues that have been present in your relationships, particularly with your spouse or a business partner are nonetheless in focus, and there may be a contentious episode or challenge in regard to a financial matter. Marriage asteroid Juno in the area of income and values suggests you may be possessive of your spouse at this time, or you may be drawn to someone explicitly for the way in which they can assist you economically. In many ways you are “married” to your work right now, and better auspices for cultivating a union based on real affection are indicated after mid March. With the Venus – Mars conjunction this week, however, there could be a romance with a colleague or connected to you professionally in this phase.

LEO: Passion, arousal and desire are all stimulated this week, though you seem to be seeking a love relationship that can endure or will become serious over time. You are very conscientious of your commitments and demonstrate newfound maturity in this period. A relationship with someone at a distance, or that puts you in contact with a child (perhaps indicating a role as a step parent) could feature largely as well. You may be feeling marriage minded in this phase, as Juno, the asteroid pertaining to commitment and the spouse, makes a lengthy transit of your sign, (lasting through June 2015). A new relationship that begins now has incredible potential, but again, slow and steady is the approach to take. Travel for or with a partner will be very stimulating over the coming weeks, with even more delicious and electrifying episodes en route through the first half of March. Your enthusiasm for life is deeply enhanced during this phase, and you seem ready to shake off the winter blues. A conversation or event on Friday augments a relationship beautifully and you can reach an incredible accord with a partner at this time. Meanwhile, your relationship with your body, health and productivity continues to be transformed, and strong indications at the end of the week will demonstrate changes that need to be made in your life to enhance your well being. A health issue that has been a matter of concern since last Fall comes into frame, and you can can gain ground on this through examining your habits and making modifications to diet and routine quite effectively now. Intuition and intimacy are enhanced mid week, and a vision or revelation will yield an inspiration that guides you towards a meaningful connection or discovery. Empathic awareness is stimulated and rapport will come easily in this phase.

VIRGO: Empathic understanding continues to enhance a committed relationship, with really enticing and intimate encounters over this weekend. This person is connected to your home or family, and you may be moving in with your mate or deepening your connection in some way at this time. Very potent energy mid week also signals significant developments, and you will be very sensitized to the needs of your partner, or your desires within a partnership. A professional matter comes into focus simultaneously and you will be seeking to modify your course of action towards the achievement of your goals. You may be pursuing outside investment or the help of a spouse or partner to begin or expand a business operation. This is an effective time for negotiating such agreements. The transformative vibrations that are altering the dynamics of a love relationship, or one that involves your role as a parent or step parent, will also come into focus towards the end of the week, as your deepest desires and longing resurface and push for changes within existing circumstances. Your intuition is REMARKABLE in this phase, and must be trusted above all else. A cathartic period of reorientation and personal definition is beginning to transpire (this will be reflected in about a month during the Pisces eclipse in opposition to your sign) and you do well to tune into your hearts true desires now, while they are so readily accessible to you. Journaling and other forms of reflection or meditation can be highly productive ways in which to tap into your yearnings. Marriage asteroid Juno in the house of endings and secrecy augments this process, and it’s probable that a significant relationship is running it’s course as you awaken to your latent desires. If so, trust that this is to make room for a much more satisfying and meaningful connection in the near future.

LIBRA: Very exciting developments come to the fore in your personal and business relationships this week. A maturing outlook and the ability to articulate your goals with precision and clarity play a huge role in establishing valuable new connections. You are becoming more serious in your thinking and choice of associates, a process augmented by an interest in sharing your time more explicitly with those who can enable and enhance your objectives, hopes, wishes and dreams. Your perspective is broadening in this phase and you’ll seek those who extend far beyond the usual milieu of people you encounter. Perhaps someone from a distance or another culture plays a part, particularly on Wednesday. A meeting or introduction this week connects you to your longer range goals for learning, communication and essentially assists you in cultivating a more exclusive circle of friends and allies. With the presence of Juno aligned auspiciously, you may find a suitable marriage partner through a group or association you work with. Many social contacts in this period will yield a prospect sooner than later. Momentous beginnings transpire in relationships for both business and pleasure and you will equally be able to find someone willing to back a substantial personal endeavor. With Big Life Changes coming, (i.e. eclipses on the Axis of your chart over the next 6 weeks,) shake ups are on route, and you are only beginning to get intonations of this at this time. The other X factor this week comes in the way of your job or life management issues, with a strange mix of set backs followed by inspiration to follow your heart in these matters creating a somewhat complex ambience in regard to the role you play to your employers, or within the circumstances on the job. Remain flexible and amenable to mutations here, as the better news is coming soon in regard to your personal projects and achievement based activities.

SCORPIO: Momentous professional developments begin to come your way this week with a significant meeting or opportunity on tap as soon as Sunday (Feb. 22nd). Your personal and financial objectives are implicated and what comes to life now could bring substantial benefits your way in regard to earnings and other long range goals connected to security issues. This equally stimulates your professional aspirations, with more on route in the first two weeks of next month. Where you may have been focused on domestic or personal concerns over the prior months, a particular project may have been moved to the back burner. It now commands great energy and attention, though with your ruling planet involved, you feel incredible motivation and a personal connection towards this activity. Romance is featured, but is likely connected to your work at this time. This is enhanced by the presence of Juno transiting the area of profession, indicating that it’s likely if you meet someone in this period, they are attached to your career in some way. Exciting, though unexpected, developments over the coming weeks will continue to offer intriguing new opportunities to enhance your reputation and reach your aspirations. Mid week is appropriate to address the issue of raising capital for a business endeavor, though you might seek to sugarcoat a matter related to self expression, be careful to not make an unfounded proposition based explicitly on the projection of an ideal. Financials get dicey at the beginning of the week, and you may have to strategize a new budget quickly. Your words and thinking play a major role in your ability to take on a opportunity that could yield tremendous success on Friday, as a conversation that occurs today can fundamentally transform the dynamics of your work life. Being able to adjust your perspective will be invaluable at this time, and plays into big developments in May. Keep your mind open, but focus sharp and steady. This could be a real game changer.

SAGITTARIUS: Bold new energy and excitement takes hold of you, reinvigorating your spirit and urging action be taken. A creative enterprise, personal project or even a love relationship kindles brilliantly at this time for you, though you may also find your newly discovered aura of maturity and awakening to responsibility urges you be conscientious about any commitments you make at this time. A love relationship that comes into frame now is brilliantly augmented by the marriage asteroid Juno, transiting the area of distant horizons and broad perspectives. You have the potential to meet someone abroad in this phase, or cultivate a connection through an academic association or travel. Publishing, media enterprises and teaching may all feature. A pivotal moment in a relationship may be due mid week, and you’ll be taking a great deal into account (residential matters and personal commitments especially,) though the pleasure principal may be just too strong to ignore. This is a turning point in some regard, even if it’s just making up your mind about a situation. There could be a contentious financial moment towards the end of the week, as an expense or shortage may curtail a grand adventure. You’ve been working on this since last Fall, keep at it now for an exciting breakthrough in May. Residential matters are also emphasized, and if an issue connected with a troublesome flatmate (alcohol or drug abuse can play a detrimental role here) or ongoing conditions with bad plumbing or flood damage sends up a red flag on Monday, reexamine the terms of your lease or consider extending your insurance to protect your property. Mid week sees improvement, less likely to actual circumstances then your attitude towards the living arrangements, though you’ll be seeking an idealized state of affairs. This can be a productive time to address furnishing or minor decoration, particularly if it brings ease or harmony, but hold your horses on the full scale remodel – with an eclipse coming to this area and impacting your domestic sphere in less then a month, change is in the wind on the residential front.

CAPRICORN: The details surrounding the significant residential shifts set to occur won’t all fall into place immediately, but you do begin to get solid indications throughout the week that changes are in store, and likely see emphasis and opportunities building in this area beginning Sunday the 22nd. An urgency to confront or change a situation could stem from developments within a relationship, this is possibly an auspicious time to move in with a partner, or you may be considering a relocation for the sake of being closer to a loved one. Much more in store, of course, over the next 2 months, so these might just be initial rumblings as to your desire for a shift. Marriage asteroid Juno in the house of intimacy and shared resources may also pull the trigger towards a significant development within the affairs of the heart. On a soul level, you “feel good” about what is transpiring right now – it speaks to your deepest desires, the ones so secret and etherial you don’t even have words to express them. You can use this energy to move forward a personal endeavor to great success right now and be very effective of working people over to your convictions. Monday is testing, you seem to have difficulty expressing your thoughts clearly, or are so overwrought with feelings of disappointment or pessimism that you feel doomed to fail. Give it a day and work through these feelings, as things turn around quickly. By mid week you are positively inspired, and can use this gravitas to convey an important message. Very empathic awareness at this time can lend to favorable negotiations. A work or health matter comes into frame, and you have to reconcile responsibilities correspondingly. The end of the week is very favorable for a financial negotiation connected with your profession. If you seek to add stature or prestige, a mentor or someone from your past could have a message of profound impact Friday. Equally, an unusual business offer, also connected to money, but that of others (investor, spouse, bank or large organization) – not the kind you earn, could be indicated at this time. This opportunity challenges some of your core beliefs, but should nonetheless be considered as it could yield an exceptional development moving forward.

AQUARIUS: The social sphere is activated immensely in the coming weeks, you have numerous opportunities to add contacts and connections. This influence may allow for a compelling introduction to someone of real marriage material. Juno in the house of commitment amplifies your desire to make a union, or perhaps your partner is marriage minded. An ardent exchange on Sunday, Feb. 22 sets the tone. This transit lasts through June, but you will be stimulated now to engage the pursuit. A lively daily schedule and many occasions and events can readily bring a very exciting new person your way. Passionate and affectionate exchanges invigorate you, but you are willing to be conscientious and discriminating in choosing your associations. You are cultivating associations that will endure and add structure to your life, less likely to fly off on a whim or flight of fancy. Mid week sees appraisal of the love object, this person may or may not live up to your ever escalating standards. Otherwise it’s possible your friends do not share your enthusiasm for this person. A significant transformation Friday can modify a relationship (love or business), the balance of power seeks adjustment, this is a long range issue, going back to last Fall. A financial or security matter crops up on Monday, and you may pay a price for over idealizing your earnings potential. Scarcity may be an issue. Mid week you see a turnaround, and a compelling inspiration can stimulate a money generating opportunity. This will connect back to creative urges that stem back through January, you see the way to put ideals into motion. Be wary – as they say all that glitters is not gold, and you are more receptive in this time to hear what you want to hear, which is not necessarily the truth.

PISCES: Security issues become emphasized and you’ll feel incredible enthusiasm to pursue your financial and professional goals in this period. Creativity may play a role in earnings, and you may find it possible at this time to bolster your income through artistic and aesthetic enterprises. Mars here sees you spending as quickly as you earn, so try to remain conscientious in your expenditures and only make necessary purchases. It’s been a period of feast or famine, though it seems you may be using your personal earnings power to augment a professional pursuit or start your own business. This is an appropriate time for this, and extraordinary opportunities over the coming weeks will allow ample room for movement in your chosen occupation. You have to work hard to make this happen and a trying moment Monday will demand that if you accept this role it may come at a cost that feels quite personal. You will ask if you have what it takes, and you certainly do, though you may have to make a concession or modification to your identity at this time. With an eclipse in your sign due in less than a month, leave room for changes, you may get intonations now of what is in store. Inspiration flows freely mid week, you will be considering whether your residential situation needs correction in order to meet the demands of your professional and personal commitments. Adaptation may be required. Marriage asteroid Juno transiting the house of daily work load, health and productivity indicates a committed partnership may evolve from a working relationship. Towards the end of the week you may see unexpected developments on the job, or new responsibilities hoisted on you. A health matter may also be in focus, a friend or associate may have advice you were not expecting, or offer a tip for employment that takes you by surprise.


Empathic Idealism and Awakening to Passion

The malaise and uncertainty of this prior retrograde phase begins to dissipate, as Mercury steadily resumes it’s pace in Aquarius. There are clear indications that conditions are improving as soon as Tuesday. A third and final contact to Saturn on Thursday allows for a significant decision or conversation to occur, and with the gears of life returning to motion we can begin to move forward on crucial agendas. There is a back to basics approach here, and a realistic appraisal of what is available to us in order to satisfy our long range objectives that is very useful. A contact to the North Node in another weeks’ time will allow for very important information to surface, as well as the social connections and ability to articulate our goals that move us towards the future.

The New Moon in Aquarius Wednesday 6:47p EST occurs in the final minute of the sign, literally seconds before the Moon and Sun move into Pisces. At 29′ 60″ Aquarius, we receive the Sabian Symbol “The field of Ardath in bloom” a symbol associated with The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, a masterpiece of antiquity and the result of Aquarian ingenuity and skill for engineering that allowed for manipulation of water that enabled the construction of such marvel. The keywords associated are revival, energy, life, optimism, friendship, fortune, healthy situation, and happiness. This is very much a birthing New Moon – as it occurs on the cusp of two signs, we barely have time to manifest at 29′ Aquarius before we pass into the deluge of empathic emotion and visionary inspiration that presides as the Sun transits through Pisces.

The New Moon makes one significant aspect: a square to Saturn in Sagittarius. During the New Moon phase, as well as into early next week, we get indications of the significance of the square forming between Saturn and Neptune via this contact. We are contending with this challenge all year, though the experience becomes most acutely felt in the weeks leading up to the exact aspect on November 26th. This represents a critical turning point, and is ultimately a highly useful aspect, as it will point out where we may be indulging fruitlessly in idealism. Through a conscientious, though potentially difficult appraisal, we can learn to effectively manage inspirational urges in order to manifest them in tangible way. This New Moon offers very effective guidelines for navigating these themes: where we all have our personal Garden of Babylon we wish to incarnate, we also must confront substantial obstacles in order to do so. Awareness of the obstacles which are illuminated at this time will be very instructive of the work required of us over the next 8 months. Mercury in cahoots with Saturn on Thursday is also very fortuitously timed. Perception is guided by pragmatic concerns, and we can swiftly resolve towards an enterprise with a vision to the future.

The call to action is deeply enhanced by the transits of Venus and Mars into Aries at the end of the week. Passion and vitality are aroused, and on Friday especially, (as the Moon transits Aries) we quickly acclimate to a completely invigorating and enthralling new consciousness. Sensation and arousal define this dual transit, and the vision or fantasy that has been gestating behind the scenes in the imaginative realm of Pisces will seek release as we’ll feel an immediate intensification of desire. Saturn weighs in on this alliance as well, harmonizing positively from Sagittarius. Relationships we are forging in this period have a more enduring and mature quality or are business minded in nature. We also seek to enter alliances that will promote our long range objectives, making this a very productive and positive association. On it’s own, Venus and Mars (conjunct on Sunday Feb. 22nd) stimulates incredibly erotic energy. In this particular configuration, however, we are a bit more grounded. The presence of the marriage asteroid Juno, currently sitting retrograde at 4 Leo, effectively forms a Grand Fire Trine, which will be discussed in greater detail in next weeks forecast. Till then, plenty of food for thought! Enjoy!

ARIES: Passion and aspiration is ignited this week, you likely feel more enthusiastic and alive than you have in at least two years. You are willing in this phase to give and receive equally, and will be ardently stimulated to pursuits of pleasure and personal enterprise to remarkable success. Friday is SPECTACULAR, commencing a brilliant new phase for you. With the very tenuous conditions surrounding your partnerships over the prior years finally eroding, this sense of personal empowerment comes as a very welcome change in the atmosphere. Also connected is a sense of responsibility and maturity in your approach. It would appear the years (and their challenges) have brought new found wisdom and you are less likely to jump into the first thing that hooks your fancy. This is a good choice. There is still business and endings transpiring in your subconscious, imaginative and etherial dimension. You are still tuning into a visionary quest, and maintaining a degree of solitude or privacy is still crucial to the balance of your psyche. There will be exciting developments and demands over the coming period, several of which you will likely place upon yourself, but you serve your best interest to reconcile loose ends and say your goodbyes as well. A truly brand new life awaits between now and April 18th. Between now and then expect nothing short of a personal revolution!

TAURUS: All the mixed signals you were on the receiving end of over the prior month in regard to your professional direction finally dissolve midweek, much to your pleasure if not amazement. An opportunity you embark on now has a few strings attached – possibly in the form of heightened responsibility or a shift in the balance of power (and money) between yourself and another. You may choose to stay open to other options through the first week of next month, not a terrible idea (March 4th can reveal a very enticing opportunity!) if you don’t feel in harmony with what’s on offer right now. Next: Your ruling planet, luscious Venus, moves into fiery and passionate Aries on Friday, signaling a palpable shift in orientation and your personal self expression. You may feel a bit more, um, lusty, and a great deal more likely to go after what you want. Mars joins up, adding passionate dimension to the sensual undertones, and stimulating intense desire for erotic connection, possibly even a steamy secret liaison for Taurus. Friday is pretty enticing, as the Moon joins the Aries love fest. Fortunately by the time Venus and Mars actually do hook up on Sunday the Moon is in your sign, and your head is back where it belongs (on your shoulders!) adding depth and emotional resonance to connections you may be making at this time, intimate or otherwise.

GEMINI: The misdirection of the prior weeks, particularly as it reflects on your academic, publishing or travel plans continue to give way to clarity. Tuesday and Wednesday in particular are phenomenal for setting course or making a discovery. From there the emphasis comes focus on your professional aspirations, and the creative surge of energy you felt since the beginning of the year in this area begins to give way to a concrete plan or agenda you seek to put into motion. A collective project, or affiliation with a group or organization may help you realize your ambitions: a meeting over the weekend signals a significant turn in the tides. Enthusiasm quickly replaces any doubt you may have felt, and a partnership may play a role here as well, offering the security or support you need to move forward with an enterprise or aspiration. You can articulate the goals and terms of this affiliation and set fourth an agreement on Thursday. This is also a very advantageous day on which to ignite a visionary pursuit. While this project will go through several permutations throughout the year, the creative impetus is strong now and you do well to seize inspiration. All work, no play? Forget about it. Romance blossoms with someone who you share hopes and dreams with and friends or a social event can offer a magnificent introduction. The next three weeks spell everything out for you.

CANCER: A close partner is emphasized at the beginning of the week, and hopefully you have managed to get away for a long romantic weekend. The channels of communication are wide open on Monday and you can easily reveal your hearts desire to the one you love. Career prospects culminate brilliantly in the coming weeks, and you begin to get intonations of what is in store Friday. Creativity and passion ignite the way at this time, with much more in store between now and the end of April. Look to Friday for a vital development. Events and intuition at this time activate a two month window representing your best opportunity for 2015 to achieve your professional goals. With Saturn and Jupiter conspiring positively, you get substantial assistance in this phase. Your ability to be practical and work methodically (Saturn) coupled with your generous handling of resources (Jupiter), augments your personal goals, and offers a very positive climate for both success and prosperity. Matters of shared resources, investment, alimony, loans or other means of outside income that have been contentious or uncertain are coming together mid week. The New Moon Wednesday illuminates the details and you can get it in writing or put a plan into motion Thursday as all the pieces fall into place beautifully.

LEO: A partnership matter that has been in flux reconciles as the New Moon Wednesday signifies a new chapter in regard to your relationships with others, and offers closure to an issue that has predominated significantly over the last several weeks. You can lock down a business agreement Thursday, as all the details can effectively be handled now and decisions made. It’s also possible you meet someone entirely new in this period, a reflection that the soul searching you recently went through has culminated in a whole new perspective. This relationship augments your maturing outlook and may come with some attendant responsibilities: a role as a step parent or mentor may feature, or there might be a notable age difference between yourself and your partner. The choices you make now bear considerably on the future, as Saturn is about enduring commitments. Look into your heart, as only you know if you are ready for this or not. By Friday you sense a palpable and incredible shift in consciousness and energy. Movement in fellow fire sign Aries stimulates a vitalizing and invigorating atmosphere and you are ready to shake the doldrums and dreariness of these Winter months, moving boldly into an exciting new season of discovery. A love relationship can feature with someone at a distance, or through travel and academia. The next 8 weeks bring incredible developments to a project associated with publishing or broadcasting, offering a once in a lifetime opportunity for monumental growth through the expansion of your perspective and philosophy. Get out there.

VIRGO: A new job, assignment or even the altogether approach to your wellness or lifestyle could be on offer this week. Significant developments and conversations that occur Tuesday into Wednesday will reveal the details and you can nail down all the particulars Thursday. With issues pertaining to endemic uncertainty in regard to work out of the way, you are free to enjoy the enticing intimate or financial gains that will be on tap from Friday. The upcoming two months feature brilliant alinements to this area, and while your fundamental evolutionary emphasis (North Node) remains on your personal values and earnings, there is really positive growth stemming from a partnership or revenue you receive through loans, inheritance or even a well made investment. A strong connection to your residence is featured implying developments may come through the family, or otherwise enable you to make a home purchase or upgrade as a result of outside assistance, such as a loan. This equally implies a sense of closeness and commitment you feel with a partner, whether in business or pleasure. With the Sun coming to accentuate this area from Wednesday, a great deal of attention is on the significant one on one relationships in your life – for better or for worse, after all Virgo.

LIBRA: Following weeks of trepidation and uncertainty, you are finally prepared to take a bold step within a creative enterprise. Piece by piece, brick by brick, you have been laying the foundation for this since New Years. Equally implied is obtaining a work assignment that allows for the expression of your artistic and visionary aptitude. Venus and Mars stimulated this, and over the next six weeks you have the potential to align with an opportunity for a job offer, even if only temporary, that will allow you to demonstrate your imaginative abilities. This could be a hard working phase, as productivity and health are emphasized. True Romance can also be sparked around the New Moon, though you may feel reserved about jumping in. Your thinking is becoming more serious in it’s outlook, and your associations reflect this. This aids you in deflecting unsuitable individuals from your midst. Indulging in flirtation without consequence could prove a nice diversion. From Friday, you begin to get intonations of what the real deal partnership looks and feels like. Passions are aroused, and over the next 8 weeks you may see several dynamic developments in the key relationship. Knowledge of your desires and expectations are coming ever clearer, and play a major role in finding the right person. Consider the ways in which the self respect and awareness you have been cultivating since the beginning of last year have transformed you. The true partnership and balance you seek is derived from caring about yourself enough to settle for nothing less than someone who not only loves you, but whom you can fully love in return.

SCORPIO: Resolution on the domestic front is likely now, as the New Moon Wednesday speaks volumes to that which is to come. There is a strong financial underpinning to your resolutions, and Thursday especially is a good time in which to strategize a budget to make your residential dreams a reality. A plum work assignment that taps into your innate abilities and passion can assist this enormously, and indications on Friday begin to reveal the details that will effectively guide your course over the next two months. An AMAZING professional opportunity is in store, weigh your options and commitments carefully! Your productivity is remarkable over the coming weeks, though it also does you well to be mindful of your health. You can balance a busy work schedule with a weekly sauna or massage, as such therapies will enhance your effectiveness and peace of mind considerably. There is also room for creativity, pleasure and romance as the Sun from Pisces on Wednesday amplifies your desire for self expression. The recent transits of Venus and Mars stimulated these yearnings, the Sun here will allow for their vital and enthusiastic expression. You continue to tap the source of inspiration, and others are ready to follow your lead.

SAGITTARIUS: After months of dormancy you spring back to life this week, Sag. Many exciting developments begin to transpire for you beginning Friday and the coming two months will likely be among the most exciting you’ve had in a great while. Your innate intuition and imagination are enhanced remarkably, and you can tap into the sweet spot of creativity, meeting your Muse and possibly kindling a true love connection in this phase. Saturn is still a strong influence, continuing to suggest your outlook is becoming more mature and indicating a degree of reticence. This actually serves you well, as enticing offers will begin to culminate in the coming weeks, you will be selective in determining the ones that truly suit your’ evolving self awareness and sophistication. From Wednesday, the Pisces Sun comes to bring focus to personal and domestic matters. Intonations of what an idealized home life would be like have influenced you since New Years. With this area now energized, you may begin to take a course of action towards realizing that vision. The colors yellow, gold and green activate positive Feng Shui. Proximity to a body of water can also provide a soothing harmonic adjustment.

CAPRICORN: You seem prepared to make a momentous residential shift at this time, and doing so speaks to the very essence of who you are becoming. This is far more significant than who you are now, and certainly more so than what you may be leaving behind. Transformations are taking place auspiciously within the most private layers of your psyche, these all come to influence the substantial developments and opportunities that occur for you professionally between now and early April. The ability to communicate is enhanced from Wednesday as the Sun transits Pisces. Your innate empathy for those around you will ease the transition enormously. You readily articulate your view, and maintain sensitivity for those whom changes affect most deeply. A very exciting financial development mid week signals a dynamic shift or opportunity for your earnings potential. This has essentially been a work in progress since New Years, and taps into your ingenuity, creativity and ability towards innovation. You can nail down particulars Thursday and move forward with assurance. You may have to compromise a degree of the solitude to which you have become accustomed to maximize the potential of what is on offer, though in the long run, this will prove to be a small price to pay.

AQUARIUS: A 2nd New Moon in your sign Wednesday effectively begins your personal New Year, and where there may have been any uncertainty as to which way you should go you feel a genuine sense of renewal that allows you to put your personal endeavors into motion. turning points over the coming days shift energy and attention from security issues and financial matters to more light hearted exchanges and exciting social developments. The pace of life becomes brisk with many calls, meetings and correspondence occurring in the day to day life. This is also a favorable period for study or a writing project. A night class could yield an enticing romantic meeting, so if you’ve wanted to cultivate a new skill, learn how to dance or cook or even study a new language, this is a great time to sign on for continuing ed. Also in focus as the Sun transits Pisces will be how to turn recent inspirations into money making ventures. The creative impulse has been strong since the beginning of the year, now would be a good time to capitalize on the visionary ideas that have been percolating in your imagination. Maybe that night class you take can augment the process as well, if you need to hone a creative talent or learn how to run a business. Brainstorm this weekend for your best insights.

PISCES: Happy Birthday Pisces! From Wednesday the Sun comes to transit your sign, offering a stunning new beginning for you as you embark on your personal New Year. A late Aquarius New Moon precipitates this, and there seem to be a few details to take attend to behind the scenes, as well as professionally before you move forward. You’ve had dynamic duo Venus and Mars transiting your sign for weeks, instigating all kinds of romantic and erotic episodes, while pushing your buttons. This comes to a conclusion by the end of the week, and the emphasis comes to shine on security, earnings and your professional ambitions. For the next two months you have an incredible opportunity to tap a creative source of income. This will tie right into your aspirations and will be the direct result of work you have done in this prior phase. With your productivity at an all time high, you can make substantial gains, this will really begin to manifest in April, but you get strong indications and can gain ground as early as this coming weekend. Follow your intuition, it’s your best guide right now. A spoonful of innovation goes a long way too, so look into tech options for making and distributing what ever it is you seek an audience for. One note with Venus and Mars – there is enormous potential for monetary gain, but equally the impulse to spend. They say you have to spend money to make money, and certainly this is true, be wary though of impulse spending or the “I’ve gotta have it!” luxury purchase. Sometimes the best way to make money is to keep your money, as well!



February is off to a roaring start with Mars conjunct Chiron (January 31st, 15 Pisces) and Venus conjunct Neptune (February 1st, 6 Pisces). Wishful thinking and rebellious behavior is likely now, as urgency towards embracing the divine and sublime motivates our actions and activities. Visionary and creative urges are enhanced, and inspiration underscores a desire to make a crucial breakthrough via Mars – Chiron. The MO on this one is very provocative and even potentially controversial. We are guided towards taking an opportunity to heal a wound by taking drastic action, possibly precipitated by an external event that reveals our sensitivity or issues associated with our self esteem, and an undercurrent of outrageous behavior can precipitate under these influences. Chiron is a bit of a renegade, and willing to do things that are disruptive to the status quo, thus your actions here may meet with the disfavor of more conventional individuals. With Mars sensitizing a delicate issue in this part of the chart, there can be an abrasive episode in which we have to stand up for ourselves. Man your battle stations, but allow compassion to be the weapon of choice, especially if you feel goaded, bullied or otherwise. Venus – Neptune taps us right into the heart of our desires through fantasy and the illusory. Not everything we see, feel or desire right now is real, so to speak, but this contact does reveal what we consider ideal and offers a massive dose of inspiration to pursue the fulfillment of that vision.

The potent Uranus – South Node conjunction in Aries is still a strong force at the beginning of the month, activated by a Full Moon in Leo on the 3rd. This incredible lunation taps into the force of the forming Jupiter – Uranus trine, amplifying spirited interaction, creativity and the desire for liberation. The Leo Full Moon is very uplifting, and acts as a catalyst to shake off the doldrums of Winter. The message is that regardless how far we may have yet to go to accomplish our dreams, there is enormous value in embracing happiness and satisfaction with life exactly how it is right now. This positivity can and will lead us to the success we seek in the future. Make time for fun and recreation during this Full Moon. Creative and self expressive activities are also highlighted and can be very successful now. The Sun contacts the Nodal Axis from 13 Aquarius as we build into the Full Moon phase, so there is a great deal of activity occurring in addition to the aforementioned… The future is in our sights and news, events and realizations that occur around the 3rd are very indicative of what lies ahead, as well as how to get there! It’s possible someone in a position of prestige or authority may assist us in some way, though our own efforts, particularly those made last August as well as in October, bear significantly on the results we enjoy at this time.

Mercury direct on the 11th allows for a solution to a problematic situation that has hindered our progress to be revealed. Productivity, intellectual exchanges and commercial activities will see a positive boost. Three reoccurring aspects really informed this retrograde cycle: Mercury sextile Uranus, Mercury to the Nodal Axis, and the sextile of Mercury to Saturn in Sagittarius. Mercury makes a long contact to Saturn, (the 1st contact occurred January 5th,) effective between the dates of February 6th – 19th, during it’s station, remaining in a close distance (max 3 degrees,) for this entire length of time. Unlike the wild and wooly (though highly insightful!) Uranus contacts, and the trans – dimensional qualities (past – future life orientation) of the evolutionary Nodal axis contacts, this long transit to Saturn really connects us to the nitty gritty of the here and now and stimulates awareness of the goals indicated by Saturn in Sagittarius, or our “work in progress” area for the next 2 + years. Saturn deliberately restricts our view so we can handle the challenges of the present moment, exclusive of diversions. This can be a process that feels arduous, but is ultimately highly productive, hang in there!

By the time of the 2nd Aquarius New Moon (Feb. 18th) all the pieces are really beginning to fall into place. Attend a (Lunar) Chinese New Year celebration to consecrate the profound renewal that is occurring in your life right now. The Aries Moon conjunct Venus and Mars on the 20th brings incredible vitality and life force into play. Libido energy may fly off the charts! Though we are a month off the Spring Equinox, a real awakening occurs now, and we are encouraged to yield to the arousal of passion. Mercury communicates with the Nodal Axis one last time on the 27th, illuminating the details that will allow you to put a crucial agenda into motion to move forward on your evolutionary journey.

By the end of the month, the Aries stellium is building in force, and we enter one of the most dynamic and engaging periods of 2015. What occurs now stimulates vital activations, building in emphasis through the Summer and into early Fall. Contacts coming in March continue to motivate us to engage with the enormous opportunities of the Jupiter – Uranus trine. We get very encouraging indications during the final week of February as Venus and Mars link up in Aries trine to Saturn (Sagittarius) that all is moving in the right direction. The conjunction of Venus and Mars on it’s own engenders a really enticing romantic – sexual ambience. Circumstances at this point, however, signify a certain gravity is present within a newly forming relationship. We will not engage another explicitly for the sake of indulging in pleasure or flirtation, but in order to ensure progress is made within our long range objectives. This is a positive development, and success comes where we are willing to bring love, imagination and creative life force towards goals we consider to be of paramount importance. From the relational standpoint, we are seeking endurance and longevity, not a flash in the pan romance. A person who enters our life at this time as a potential lover or partner must in someway augment (or at the very least understand,) these goals. Slow and steady!

ARIES: You are considering a really provocative change in your behind the scenes, private or hidden life, and revealing a secret could feel highly therapeutic if not utterly transformative at this time. You connect gloriously to your creative abilities this week, and despite a few months of dormancy where a love affair was concerned, you may find the confidence to rekindle a connection. Tuesday and Friday speak to this brilliantly – make your move! Mid week is a bit more contentious, holding onto that secret is keeping your love life in limbo. Hopes and aspirations for the future are also highlighted, and the work you do collectively with a group or organization, or otherwise in your academic life, can be showcased, genuinely enhancing your reputation. Structuring an educational objective, publishing or broadcasting endeavor over the coming weeks is also indicated. You can nail down particulars between the 5th and 19th, and put this into motion by the last week of the month.

TAURUS: A residential matter shows major signs of improvement this week, with a professional opportunity Friday signaling a positive shift in your arrangements, possibly even a relocation to take an offer for a prestigious position. A conversation behind the scenes Thursday gets the wheels turning on this, but no sudden moves (Mercury retrograde), and keep it hush – hush until all the pieces fall into place around the 18th. Nailing down the details and refining the agenda is a highly productive use of the energy available over the next two weeks. An intriguing romantic episode is stimulated over this weekend, and a social occasion or event can present an significant introduction. Friends and allies provide a wonderful sounding off for your aspirations at this time as well, particularly those linked to creative industries, and your hopes and dreams can be made true by working with others at this time. You can heal a wound or rift through your associates at this time.

GEMINI: A professional pattern that has limited your ability to reach out to bigger and better opportunities is associated with feelings of self worth, a theme that is paramount and triggered by an event this weekend. The better you feel about yourself, the better you feel about what you have to offer. It might be time to take a radical action and show what you are really made of. Creativity or partnering with others to seek success is another significant topic, and likely stimulates a great deal of conversation and negotiation, particularly Thursday, when you can begin to nail down some of the details in an agreement or decision associated with your career. This is a theme that lasts through the 19th, and a thorough assessment of the details involved will prove a valuable use of your time, leading to lasting success. The Full Moon Tuesday sees you at your expressive heights and you can take to the pen, page, your blog or even the streets the numerous ideas that have been percolating in your psyche. An eruption of ideas Friday sees you quite busy – keep your schedule open to adjustments.

CANCER: Financially there have been hit or miss conditions over the prior six months, and it’s safe to say not all your initiatives have matured adequately enough to be considered a success or failure. You do, however, get a solid indication Tuesday (though Friday is also significant,) of at least one positive outcome for something you put into motion about six months ago. Conditions continue to be bewildering through next week, but an upturn is still likely at this time. Far more intriguing, if not enticing, will be your prospects for a romantic encounter, with events Sunday the 1st triggering a significant meeting or culmination in your love life. Broadening of horizons (through travel and education) or engaging cultural interests opens the door to an illuminating experience. Perfection!

LEO: You feel empowered this week, Leo, and rightfully so, but don’t let your confidence allow you to get duped into a dicey financial agreement. Those magic beans might not be all they are cracked up to be, after all. You may be ready to make a meaningful, intimate commitment at this time, and very magical auspices are present in this phase to connect on a deeply sensual, even tantric level – with a lover. Healing is possible through this contact. Allowing your partner to have the upper hand at the end of the week will work wonders towards finding an amenable solution to any conflict that may arise. A situation can quickly become divisive if you take on airs of moral or ethical superiority, so watch your attitude, esp. with Mercury still in retrograde. You have the power to negotiate a standing agreement in a professional relationship or with a life partner between the 5th and 19th. A thorough appraisal of what each of you brings to the table, as well as mutual expectations, can be clarified in this phase.

VIRGO: You may be feeling a bit sentimental under these auspices, and the realization that certain elements of your life are moving into the soon to be past tense (as you move forward into bold new territory,) can stimulate a certain nostalgia. Also in the balance is a close relationship and whether this rather radical association can continue. Events this weekend will implore you to answer this question, assuming you can cut through the dense romantic fog that you have shrouded this individual in. If it “hurts so good” you might be in for a rude awakening, though you’ll start to come to your senses Thursday, as the Moon transits your sign. You can get your house in order as well, just be careful what, or whom, you sweep under the carpet. A life – work balance is coming into focus from Thursday through the 19th. You are likely clarifying goals at work or within residential matters, if not both, during this period.

LIBRA: Friends and alliances are in the frame and will likely be celebrating a major victory with you as a cherished wish or dream comes true under the auspices of Tuesday’s Full Moon. You can nurture a love vibration in the early part of the week by enhancing wellness and taking care of yourself, though this could equally imply an office romance. Demonstrating your creativity and imagination on the job can lead to an exciting assignment that taps your natural artistry. Ambivalence surrounding an enterprise connected to your self expression or a love affair begins to dissipate on Thursday. Someone comes through for you in a most amazing and unexpected way this week, and you begin to feel more confident in the future of this project or association.

SCORPIO: You are on the verge of taking a huge leap of faith in a romantic relationship or within a creative project. Why hold back? You are likely still getting dogged by residential concerns, these will dissipate soon enough. For now, it is worthwhile to entertain the options being presented, especially where you can engage passionately through self expression or a provocative romantic relationship. Imagination is key and provides insight into the nature of true love. A very crucial professional development highlights the hard work you have been doing over the prior 6 months during the Full Moon on Tuesday, and you stand to make substantial gains as a result. Opportunity beacons, and you may need to make a drastic revision in your living situation to accommodate growth in your career. Profits can be derived from a work from home business or personal enterprise, with good results coming on Thursday from a project you have put sustained time and effort into. You can nail down a budget or reach a defining decision about your living situation (and the way these are related) between the 5th and 19th. A clearheaded appraisal takes you far.

SAGITTARIUS: Really revealing circumstances in your residential and personal life at the beginning of the week signal changes occurring in your domestic realm. A very loving experience may be on tap, or you can use this energy to create positive synergy in your environment to draw affection and romance. A beautification or redecoration project can work wonders. Vanguard energy also predominates, and if your mostly nomadic existence is beginning to wear on you, you may consider putting your roots down, perhaps even with someone you have feelings for. The Full Moon Tuesday has your name all over it, and adventure beacons. You feel incredibly revitalized. Articulating your needs will be possible over the coming weeks, though a sense of caution will preside and you may not be overt or demonstrative. You are in a process of defining yourself as a mature and responsible individual, and this will be reflected in your choices this month.

CAPRICORN: A very positive financial emphasis comes into frame this week with very exciting (though highly unexpected!) developments culminating around the Full Moon on Tuesday, and the hard work of the last six months finally bearing fruit. Your capacity to innovate is highlighted, though your steady and persevering nature is what ultimately brings in the success. This will be most evident on Thursday, and you can work efficiently towards a financial objective between now and the 19th. Communication, and the audience with whom you share your ideas, is highlighted this weekend, and a very tender expression of affection may open doors in a love relationship. A desire to provoke controversies through the written or spoken word is equally signified. Express yourself, just be wary that you might stoke the fires of discontent with a rogue social media post or scandalous text message. Is it worth it?

AQUARIUS: Tuesday’s Full Moon lights up your love life brilliantly, and even if the last few months have seen a downturn in matters of affection, you stand to make demonstrable progress with a partner in the coming weeks. You express yourself with complete candor Monday, and Thursday through the 19th are highly fruitful for nailing down particulars, especially where you might be revitalizing, remaking or re-envisioning your image and identity. Meanwhile, a strong financial emphasis over the weekend sees you lavishing beautiful gifts on the one you desire, or taking a radical turn in measures associated with your earnings. Your personal economy is dually impacted by your ability to be imaginative coupled with a measure of provocative daring. Feelings of personal worth and self esteem hold sway over your values and earnings. There is the potential of going totally over board Friday with a spouse or lover, which presents a sort of “be careful what you wish for” scenario. Ardent passion and an incredible opportunity is in store within the realm of partnership in this phase, though you may wish to wait another week (when Mercury is direct) to make a standing decision.

PISCES: You are working intently and resolutely on a very significant professional matter at this time. From Thursday of this week through the 19th you will see a complete overhaul of a strategy or project, and can make substantial progress nailing down the particulars in this phase. This is underscored by a highly auspicious development at work during the Full Moon on Tuesday. Your productivity is rewarded, and accolades for work well done motivates you towards your next success. Highly provocative and alluring auspices over this weekend illuminate your desire for love and passionate exchange with another. You may take a chance on a seemingly unlikely or even provocative alliance, though it could be exactly what you need right now. Your creative powers are at an all time high – equally so is your sensitivity to stimulation and empathic awareness of others. These qualities are linked inextricably as it turns out. Consider in what ways you can you protect yourself from being too vulnerable, but remain open at the same time.
