STARGAZER AUGUST FORECAST

Sands continue to shift this month, though some of the volatility appears to be dissipating. Mercury and Mars in retrograde suggest a convoluted path, though positive outcomes are possible if you are willing to renegotiate and work through the unexpected developments that transpire. The most crucial events are likely to occur around the Leo Solar Eclipse on the 11th. Mercury will have moved its way back to the degree of the eclipse in the early days of the month, signaling several key conversations or pieces of information that have a bearing on where this all lands are at play.

This is all more likely to culminate towards the end of the month, when Mercury returns to this degree after resuming direct motion. (On August 29th, at 18’ Leo, to be precise.) Jupiter from Scorpio plays a role in the configuration – making two square aspects, both at the time of the eclipse and again just prior to the return of Mercury to the eclipse degree, indicating a need to dig deeper, emotionally and psychologically, to resolve whatever is at stake here. These are pretty obstinate and temperamental signs, so some matter of ego or power tripping has to get sorted out between them before progress can be made. Mercury turns direct on the 19th, harmonizing to Venus, signaling an amenable agreement or positive news shifts the trajectory forward.

Venus moves from Virgo into Libra on the 6th, offering a diplomatic ambience to underscore all of these developments. Venus is quite far ahead of the Sun at this point and enters retrograde shadow early next month, infusing Autumn with relational reassessments, but more on that later. For now, Venus is happy in the sign in which she governs and makes a productive aspect to Mars in Aquarius, signaling a positive development within an association and enhancing connectedness in both romantic and working partnerships. Testing aspects to Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn will challenge these alliances mutually, and relationships have to transform as well as demonstrate they have the ability to serve long range objectives. Those that last through this period are rock solid, Venus retrograde notwithstanding.

Mars retrogrades back into Capricorn on the 12th (through September 10th) adding some gritty resilience to all efforts being made in this period. An unfulfilled prospect ranging back to early May can now come to fruition. Resuming direct motion at the same time Mercury direct conjuncts the Leo eclipse degree (the 26th – 29th are particularly auspicious,) pulls the trigger on everything else that has percolated throughout the Summer months, signaling a substantial shift forward.

PISCES FULL MOON

Pisces Full

Check out the cool kite feature between Sun – Moon to Saturn + Uranus. Also a very diggable harmonic between Jupiter, Pluto + Neptune. Meanwhile, Venus is square Pluto ☠️

Full Moon in Pisces on the 26th augments all of this as the Sun – Moon polarity taps the trine between Saturn and Uranus which lasts from August 14 – September 14. The final Jupiter – Neptune trine (August 19th) underscores the inspirational themes that are present during the Full Moon and a balance between the rational and innovative is tempered with insight from the spiritual realm. Intuition serves well in this phase and from this place the constructs of a brand new life can begin to be put into place.

AUGUST EXTENDED + WEEKLY FORECAST w. DAILY ASPECTS AVAILABLE TO SUBSCRIBERS ON PATREON

ARIES – The Ram

It’s a highly pleasurable month in store, and especially from the 19th, when Mercury resumes direct you may find a love relationship gets back on track. A test on the 9th will prove whether or not this one is built to last. All the knots could take a few weeks to untangle, but an eclipse in the area of true romance on the 11th can get you there much quicker. Swim in your imagination and be inspired on the 19th. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to connect with the deepest reservoirs of your spirituality and innermost wisdom. From mid month, Mars re-enters the zone of public image, reputation, and career. You may reconsider your life direction, or make another go at an opportunity you missed early this year. After the 28th you’ll be ready to give it another shot.

TAURUS – The Bull

An unstable ambience around your living situation can find resolution this month, there is a message for you regarding this during the Leo eclipse on the 11th. When Mercury is direct from the 19th you’ll swiftly see progress where a real estate negotiation may have stalled over the prior month. The 30th is a crucial date, as Mercury reaches the degree of the eclipse and releases a great deal of bottled up energy. Conversation and negotiations reach a fevered pitch. Mars direct in Capricorn on the 28th gives you a bit of the va va voom. Uranus retrograde from the 8th signals a lessening of The Intensity. It’s time to integrate some of the new things you uncovered about yourself over the last three months. Saturn and Uranus combine fruitfully, offering you an opportunity to bring some stability to your new found independence. A romantic getaway on the 19th speaks to your hearts’ deepest desires.

GEMINI – The Twins

While it’s a bummer Mercury and Mars are moving at backwards trajectory, this will still stand out as a really exciting month for your social life and maybe even to see a special romance grow. While it’s not really advisable to start new relationships (Mars retrograde suggests past life connotations,) there could be some nice escalations in an ongoing relationship, though the 9th looks a bit dicey. An eclipse on the 11th can see you moving on a new project, though it could get off to a slow start with Mercury still on backwards trawl for another week still, nice and easy. Spirituality and intuition are highlighted. You find a deep inner reserve of strength. Professional rewards are due, as a Full Moon on the 26th couples with this strength and offers an opportunity to move in a really heart guided and bold new direction. Events on the 19th tell you that you’re heading in the right place.

CANCER – The Crab

A relational matter you’d thought been put to rest crops up again in the latter part of the month. It’s also possible someone you had written off returns to the scene and you might consider another go at it. Super romantic vibes on the 19th could make this reunion an easy sell, but think this one through before you commit. Events on the 26th speak volumes about why or why not this person is just so right/wrong for you. Financials are still in the frame, but Mercury retro through the 19th still muddies the waters here. An Eclipse on the 11th and a conversation or insight on the 8th can yield clues to a resolution, just don’t expect quick results. Look to the 30th for the door to open. Home is where the heart is and you’ll be happiest entertaining and lounging around the house. A redecoration project or fresh coat of paint can work wonders now. Rose and pink colors, applied in moderation, activate positive Feng Shui and break apart stagnant channels of energy for you.

LEO – The Lion

A degree of harmony is restored this month, even Venus and Mars connect briefly, softening some of the rougher energy fields remaining in the aftermath of last month. An eclipse in your sign on the 11th coupled with Mercury direct on the 19th sets you back on course. Insights and conversations on the 8th will reveal a solution, you will be able to put these into motion shortly. Venus in Libra enlivens the social life and your day to day encounters with others. A love connection is super sweet on the 7th, regardless of what have been through, and a single Leo could strike up an interesting love connection in the most casual day to day activities. Mars back in Capricorn on the 14th (for 4 weeks) could indicate having to go back to complete or retool an unfinished work assignment. It’s possible something wasn’t done right the first time and has to be sorted out. By the 28th things resume a slightly less sluggish pace, it will be easier to complete this in the beginning of September.

VIRGO – The Maiden

The theme of endings continues as you make peace with the past and enjoy some quietude, perhaps a retreat. The 8th is ideal for setting up a meditation practice or committing to a course of psychotherapy if you feel you are ready for that. (Everyone and anyone can find benefit!) The 11th also sees a door closing on the past, and you’ll feel the load lighten as you say goodbye to a life you no longer need to live. Venus and Mars team up to make some magic and you can see a nice boost in income or grab an assignment that adds a few bucks to your bank account. Don’t spend it all in one place as a reality check or shortage on the 9th or 26th is likely if you do. Mars reenters Capricorn on the 14th, maybe there is unfinished business with a former love attachment that didn’t get off the ground the first time? The Full Moon on the 26th can bring relational matters to culmination. Commitments made now are built to last and will stand the test of time.

LIBRA – The Scales

Shifts in atmosphere this month make it easier to deal with some of the challenges that may have emerged in late July, as Jupiter and Neptune generate harmonious conditions in your work life and you’ll have opportunities to profit through imaginative and creative projects and assignments at this time. Venus in Libra from the 7th supports this and you’ll likely see an upturn in both your natural artistic affinities and a more pleasurable ambience over all. A meeting with the one you desire, even if brief, on the 7th will work wonders for a relationship that is going through hard times or separation. You’ll also start to find your way with a group project and developments on the 11th and especially after Mercury goes direct on the 19th will get you back on your way. Mars in Capricorn (retrograde) from the 13th signals unfinished residential issues that need to be addressed. It gets easier after the 28th to resolve these matters.

SCORPIO – The Scorpion

You get indications, especially around the 8th and 11th of the direction in which you need to take a professional endeavor. In another weeks time you can put this into motion, there is still a missing piece to this puzzle. Events that occurred in early June play a role and you know you have to deliver on an agreement you made. An electrifying partnership stabilizes a bit this month. It’s been exciting, but you are ready for a little less buzz. It will be nice to get a nights sleep. Romantic feelings become submerged, and you may think about who and what you have experienced this year so far, where you are now. You reach a crossroads on the 26th, time to decide to stay or go. Commitments made now will stand the test of time. You may be surprised what you agree to. A prior agreement could require review from the 14th, though from the 25th – 28th it gets dynamic again. Professionally you begin to regain your momentum.

SAGITTARIUS – The Archer

This is an exciting period for you socially and it’s possible you will be connecting with old friends and colleagues this month. A reunion could produce a new romantic interest around the 8th, as contacts will be very vibrant and exciting. With so much retrograde activity occurring, you will have to wait and see if this connection was built to last. You actually enjoy yourself a lot more if you detach yourself from seeking an outcome. Live in the moment. A financial reality check on the 9th could trigger some anxiety. As Mars reenters Capricorn, you’ll seek out solutions to problems that have been evasive. Mars direct from the 28th will give you the wherewithal to make a necessary change or complete an unfinished job through the first few weeks of September. A Full Moon in Pisces on the 26th points to a substantive change in your living arrangements. You could be making modifications to your home to accommodate a new business enterprise. Alterations that occur at this time will be enduring and have a powerful effect on your earnings.

CAPRICORN – The Seagoat

Uranus retrogrades early in the month, slowing the pace of crossing boundaries towards exciting new frontiers and recently acquired freedom. You have a few months to take it all in and determine where you want to go next. Professionally you could be in the spotlight, as Venus brings style, charm and diplomacy to your public image and reputation. A nice link between Venus and Mars on the 7th could land you a lucrative professional promotion or upgrade. Mars will be back in your sign from the 13th, and you’ll be eager to accomplish a great deal. It gets easier when Mars is direct after the 28th. An inspiration on the 19th could lead to a fun creative project you may work on with a group of friends. Writing, theater or a multi – media project could be very appealing. An eclipse on the 11th, followed by Mercury in direct motion a week later signals the successful conclusion of a negotiation that had likely been drawn out. The 18th is excellent for getting a agreement in writing and finalizing a deal that has been in the works.

AQUARIUS – The Waterbearer

Another eclipse on the 11th can bring sudden surprises in relationships. An event in the life of your partner has a big affect on you, for better or worse. A business partner could spur you to move towards your professional goals. Professional gains and lucrative incentives are possible on the 19th. Inspiration and creativity guide you towards the right objectives. A matter of contention or indecision regarding a partnership could begin to see resolution around the 8th. Romantic energy is strong at this time and reconnecting will bring you very close to someone you care for. Travel is favored, though the second half of the month is preferable, after the 19th Mercury resumes direct motion and there will be fewer delays and entanglements. A spiritual pilgrimage could be a good choice, you awaken to your inner most soul self on the 25th. This rare alignment offers a glimpse into your heart of hearts. You can come into intuitive awareness of a profound spiritual peace. Pressure subsides mid month with Mars leaving your sign for a few weeks.

PISCES – The Fishes

Romance remains sweet for the first week of the month, from the 7th a more financial emphasis comes into play. Your most intimate relationships are highlighted on the 7th, and a love relationship or business deal regarding shared income or an investment is auspiciously indicated. Work, health and productivity are still the main topic, and events during the eclipse on the 11th will bring a new position or project your way. A tuning point on the 8th adds a new dimension to your domestic life, you may be starting a work from home business or moving/renovation plans are starting to come together. After the 19th there is much more clarity when Mercury resumes direct motion. A promotion or assignment finally gets the green light you have been waiting for. Mid month will see Mars retrograde into Capricorn, and this could represent a period (over the next month) of reconnecting with old friends and alliances. There could be some fun surprises, maybe a reunion is in store. Mars direct on the 28th will restore the energy level, and also impacts your income. (Mars rules your money and earnings sector, so the retrograde period has likely put your finances in limbo.) Your personal mojo is strong during the Pisces Full Moon on the 26th, making this a fantastic time to mix and mingle. A commitment you make to your beloved contains enduring overtones that easily last the test of time.

march2-copy  PISCES: February 19 – March 20

The first week of the month is deliriously romantic. If you are in a longstanding relationship it may be time to tie the knot. Single Pisces may find friends make a significant introduction and sparks fly at an event or at a meeting within an organization. Passion presides over all developments, and you can really tap into pleasure this month. Overcoming a challenge on the 8th will be a critical turning point in a commitment.

It’s possible you are returning to school and gaining new skills that will enhance professional opportunities next year.

 

STARGAZER FORECAST SEPTEMBER 2016

TURNING POINTS – CROSSING THE THRESHOLD TO A NEW LIFE

A significant turning point in September is largely defined by the Saturn – Neptune square, with the stakes and potential for transformation amplified by two very intense eclipses, falling in Virgo (September 1st) and Pisces (September 16th). Late November of 2015 saw the first aspect occur, the onset of a challenge associated within the manifestation of an ideal (or otherwise the realization of an illusion) that has been pervasive throughout most of the year. The final culmination (September 10th) will show how well we have navigated the confrontation that emerged, and whether or not the attainment of the ideal has been successful. In order to do this we have likely had to overcome something, or prove our dedication. Saturn has a back to basics quality that requires a certain mettle and staunch determination that likely described what was required to overcome the challenge(s) presented. Much has been stripped away in order to complete this task. The reality check here was to really evaluate and define what is real (difficult under the gauzy-hazy auspices of the Neptune square) and work with what we actually have, in order to create that which could possibly be.

Neptune’s impulses come from a etherial and creative place that stimulates divine inspiration. Saturn demanded that the inspiration be crystalized into some kind of workable and tangible form. Jupiter from Virgo added emphasis to the material realm, and gave us some beneficial tools to work with, assisting us in finding new methods to stimulate productivity. Health and wellness have also been a focus, with the North Node pointing us toward an evolutionary path that shows us better ways to manage well being. Finding the right life management patterns has a positive and outward effect on all else going on with us and around us. Feeling good most certainly boosts our availability to be present, both for generating the endurance that is required as we work toward successful outcomes as well as to meet the demands of more critical challenges as they inevitably occur.

The eclipses this month represent a real shake up, and may prove severe testing points for the durability of the structures we have developed or the path to the future we wish to sow. September 1st can be volatile, as our 9 Virgo eclipse falls right in the cross hairs of the culminating Saturn – Neptune square, which is already strong enough by the end of August to clearly be felt. A Solar Eclipse represents a moment for monumental growth forward and engagement of a new opportunity, and while this will certainly be no exception, this particular prospect is inhibited by the ongoing challenges Saturn – Neptune represent. It’s also possible an event or insight that occurs around this time provides the necessary breakthrough or catalyst through which we find the solution to a sizable conflict. With the Eclipse ruler (using Mercury as the traditional ruler of Virgo) in detriment because it is retrograde, it’s going to take an extra bit of sorting through to get there. (Bookmark October 6th as the place where everything can begin to fall into place, at least on an organizational level.) Sun conjunct North Node on September 5th will provide clearer directives that illuminate the pathway to the future.

PISCES ECLIPSE 9/16:

pisces eclipse

While the Solar Eclipse may be vexing, mainly because of the impediments to that which we seek to get off the ground, it’s really the Lunar Eclipse at 24 Pisces on the 16th that packs the punch. Lunar eclipses signal endings, and with Mars in hard aspect, square both Sun and Moon, it could be an ending that comes out of an argument or disagreement. Saying goodbye is always more difficult under the auspices of a bad break or burning a bridge, and there is a rather hostile and contentious atmosphere at this time. It could equally be that a significant culmination occurs that someone on the sidelines disapproves of and responds to argumentatively or aggressively. An ethical or legal dispute can also present an issue or conflict around this period.

Moon and Chiron in Pisces will also be close at the time of the Eclipse, and there can be a healing release connecting back to events last March. Letting go of pain, and perhaps more significantly, the idea we have to continue putting energy into a situation out of feelings of sympathy – as opposed to a genuine desire to participate, are also significant topics of the eclipse that seek resolution. This also ties into feelings of personal self worth, or a lack there of, that keeps us tenuously bound to unhealthy or unsatisfying relationships or conditions. This will be a potent time in which to evaluate these feelings and make an effort to resolve these issues where we find them to be present. Sensitivity will be heightened immensely at this time, so take it real easy if you are naturally empathic/intuitive. In the following days, the Aries Moon rejuvenates and from September 17 – 19, Venus, Mars and Uranus all align playfully, igniting a really fun and dynamic ambience for love, pleasure and sex, especially where you are ready to try something, or even someone, new.

Mercury retrograde (August 30 – September 22) underscores the dynamic atmosphere of the month, in some ways muddling the proceedings, but also ensuring we get it right, so we can move forward with clarity and conviction into the incredibly advantageous final quarter of the year. Mercury has two significant accomplices during the RX cycle, Jupiter and Pluto, which will actually stimulate a very positive ambience for growth through the conversations and negotiations that will take place throughout September. Jupiter, with which Mercury remains in very close communication with from August 20 – September 5th, infuses communication and thinking with hope and optimism for the future. From Virgo, refinement of a concept or the methods we engage in order to manifest it are highlighted. The combination of the two augurs good will and expansion. So towards the end of August we are generating big and exciting ideas, and making very positive strides within communication based activities.

Mercury then takes a step back to reevaluate the grand design it’s working on, spending the final two weeks of September in harmonious alignment with Pluto, the period from the 20th – 23rd signaling the peak of their contact. The cosmic messenger takes the bold ideas it formed with Jupiter and intensifies them through the connection with Pluto, ensuring these prospects and activities augment and enhance the deeper transformation that is occurring in our lives. The modification that transpires now is crucial and will boost our chances at success, so don’t feel deterred if things seem to be taking a while to get sorted. Important information has yet to be revealed and Virgo – Mercury seeks to establish a methodology that will generate the best results. This does not necessarily indicate a loss of momentum, just a period of reassessment that will likely be very busy as we attend to numerous details!

Look to developments that occurred in March and June (when Jupiter and Pluto were trine) as we are currently in the process of articulating and manifesting the goals and opportunities represented by those contacts. This period from the 20th – 23rd is when the most vital conversations will occur, with Mercury turning direct on the 22nd, we pivot towards a new agenda directly out of the agreements and discussions taking place at this vital and significant time. Mercury will combine forces emphatically with Jupiter at 7 Libra for a third time on October 11th, and it will be all systems go on the relationship, lifestyle and enterprise from there.

With Jupiter in Libra from the 10th, we shift from the learning phase of the last year into a climate ripe for initiative and new beginnings. Jupiter in Libra will emphasize creating balanced relationships between ourselves and others, and offer expansive opportunities through relating, especially within artistic and intellectual activities. Jupiter will engage with Pluto and Uranus this year, encouraging a more diplomatic response to the more volatile and abrasive confrontations we have endured since 2012. Partnerships will thrive, as the Sun – Jupiter conjunction (Sep. 26th) and Libra New Moon on the 30th will quickly attest to. Venus in Libra through September 23rd sets the tone, stimulating amenable social conditions and the cultivation of connections that will enhance prosperity and growth.

The ambience really gets a jolt at the end of the month, as Pluto resumes direct motion on the 26th and Mars enters Capricorn the following day. An executive and professional atmosphere prevails and our most determined efforts and conviction towards success become stimulated. A persevering quality is present through mid November, and makes this a good period in which to tackle a tough project or challenge you can completely immerse yourself within, particularly if it leads to promotion and advancement. (Mars conjunct Pluto and square Jupiter in October will really amplify the desire to succeed, perhaps at any cost!) With so many challenges otherwise overcome, and the tumultuous back and fourth we’ve experienced so far this year, by the time we reach the Fall Equinox (Sept. 22nd) a new beginning transpires that signals the turning point we have all been waiting for. Things get better from here on out, as we enter the most productive and positive quarter of the year, which in many ways will seem like it’s only beginning. Happy Autumn Time, I hope it will be most magical for you!

HOROSCOPES BY SIGN:

ARIES: Unsettled issues regarding a job or promotion are highlighted this month, with your life direction becoming more sorted in the final week. You have to compromise some of your mobility to achieve a milestone in your profession, as educational pursuits are still occupying much of your time. Partnerships are also highlighted, with some of the best opportunities to rekindle or begin an alliance around the New Moon on the 30th shifting attention to what you really want in a business or romantic relationship. Wishes can come true under these auspices and the weekend of the 17th will offer super enticing vibrations. Walking the road less traveled will open the door to exciting experiences in love. Professionally you see signs of life from the last week of the month. A conversation occurring from the 20th – 23rd sets the stage for the advancement of your goals. This trend continues through mid November, largely defining the rest of the year for you. Hard work pays off now, as the right people finally see how much effort you have put in and offer awards accordingly.

 

TAURUS: Creative and romantic energy continues to be a dominant theme, and a cathartic, behind the scenes love connection can unfold over the weekend of the 17th. You may be parting with a group or organization mid month. A collective project ends with bang and maybe a blowout! Your mojo gets ignited from the 27th, you seek to grow in new directions and can embark on a new frontier at this time. The value you place on your productivity and health will also be a topic, and your creative instincts can lead to a promotion this month, so polish your portfolio and put your best foot forward. You can make a great impression on the right people from the 19th – 20th. Relationships deepen and intensify from the 23rd. If things have been unsettled within your personal affairs, you’ll see a swift turnaround from here on out.

 

GEMINI: A domestic resolution is in sight, though it will likely take till the end of the month to square away the details. If you and a partner can’t see eye to eye on the matter, you may want to call a truce or time out until all the details regarding a loan or joint financial issue are resolved on the 23rd. This is a great month otherwise for self expression and pleasure pursuits, a year long transit of Jupiter in your realm of true romance is fully ignited on the 30th, putting you at ease and providing opportunities for real growth experiences. Connect with friends over the weekend of the 17th, an introduction can spark an exciting new attraction. A way of life comes to an end mid month, you may be moving up the ladder of success or stepping down to start a new professional journey. Eclipses signal changes within your life direction, and a partnership may be at the crux of your decision.

 

CANCER: Daily life is a mess this month, your best bet is to keep your schedule (and mind) as open as possible. You can take enormous comfort in the pleasures of home, Venus and Jupiter encourage you to feather your nest and find happiness through close and familial connections. The 26th provides a great opportunity to expand or renovate your residence. Hosting a party or get together can also be spectacularly successful now. The New Moon on the 30th will highlight a monumental and positive shift in your domestic arrangements. Moving house could feature. The 20th – 23rd is a good time to make amends or reach accord with your partner. Confusion dissipates and the communication line reopen. A professional development over the weekend of the 17th is promising. Your productivity leads to advancement or promotion.

 

LEO: The financial realm is volatile this month, with both an influx and output of resources contributing to some bewilderment and confusion. Your children or creative projects are implicated and you may be forced to curtail certain expenses to meet unexpected costs associated with them. If you have been waiting for news on a raise or promotion, or expecting payment from a client, you may be waiting until the 23rd. Use the days prior to negotiate an appropriate deal for yourself. From the 26th you get busy on a new job or assignment. Daily life and communication are enhanced. If you have thinking about starting a night class, writing a book or blog, the 26th and 30th are auspicious for decisions and new communication based projects.

 

VIRGO: It’s topsy turvy for Virgo this month, hang on to your hat! So many vital opportunities are on offer for you, (potentially connected to a life changing commitment you make within a partnership mid month) but can only come to bear their delectable fruits when you finally resolve the endemic issue surrounding your home or family. The weekend of the 17th is your most advantageous period in which to deal with these issues and find the resources or financial support (also possible through a partnership) that can stimulate the resolution you seek. The following days (20th – 23rd) are equally supportive as you reconcile differences with your love connection. The lines of communication are open and you can articulate your heartfelt desires as they become clearer to you over the course of the week. Intuition is highlighted on the 5th, pay attention to clues. Financial opportunities emerge around the 26th and 30th. Learning the value of your own worth and contribution pays of big time.

 

LIBRA: You have phenomenal auspices this month, though attending to unfinished business seems to require your attention before you can truly embrace the substantial upgrades that are on route. You may spending some time in limbo as you reflect on the past so you can genuinely release burdens and baggage. It’s a good period in which to reflect on what has or has not worked, and to eradicate patterns of behavior tied up mainly in feelings that contribute to self sabotage. So many bigger and brighter things are on the way! Mid month events require dexterity, and emancipation from burdensome lifestyle arrangements or a job or habit that is holding you back from the massive success story in store for you over the coming year is highly likely at this time. Health can be precarious, especially if you are keeping a hectic schedule. An emphasis on the living arrangements come into focus during the last week and you can begin to make headway on your residential goals. The New Moon on the 30th begins a period of growth and prosperity for the coming year. Set intentions and make your wish.

 

SCORPIO: A love relationship continues to mutate in strange and mysterious ways, and the time is ripe to release the notion that someone is, or needs to be, perfect all the time and see this situation (and this person) for what it really is. Financial shortfalls continue to provide a contentious environment for the satisfaction of your desires, and may motivate you to press harder and harder for resolution, this will be especially apparent mid month. A job or assignment can produce a helpful boost in income over the weekend of the 17th. A soulful sojourn is possible now, as Venus and Jupiter illuminate your hidden desires. Intuition strengthens and dreams and premonitions illuminate what you seek in a love relationship. From the 23rd, the ambience shifts favorably, as Venus enters your sign. Pluto direct a few days later sees you back in your element, sensations of desire and intimacy resume their course and allow you to deepen your commitments accordingly.

 

SAGITTARIUS: Incredible dynamics are at play for you professionally, and despite a few road blocks and the twists and turns (Mercury retro, up ahead) it’s fair to assume a fantastic outcome when all the kinks have finally been ironed out. It looks as though you are in negotiation for a promotion and a lot of dialogue between the 20th – 23rd surrounding the topic of your compensation will be settled at that time. From there, everything moves and grooves forward, and with Mars leaving your sign on the 27th you’ll be feeling less antsy and hot under the collar. Domestic issues will culminate mid month, and a change is in the works in which you can settle a residential of family matter. There is a tense ambience around this transition that affects you personally, so don’t burn a bridge unless you really can afford to. The 17th – 19th speaks to love and creativity, you may meet someone with whom you spark unexpected and exciting synergy. Wonderful!

 

CAPRICORN: While clarity will not improve immediately, the clearing is in sight, and what you are capable of doing is setting targets and intentions, even if you are not quite sure how you will get there yet. Future objectives and especially professional pursuits are favorably highlighted (the weekend of the 17th and the New Moon on the 30th are especially advantageous) with significant developments for you particularly from the last week of the month. Pluto direct on the 26th and Mars from your sign the following day boost your charisma enormously, what ever frustration or delay you may have experienced so far this year, the time is right to make your boldest and biggest moves. Remember: iron fist – velvet glove, Jupiter in Libra bestows fortune on those who are tactful and diplomatic, so speak to your passion and conviction without bullying for the best results. Romantic and passionate energy is also generated under these auspices and you can (re)connect from the 23rd onward with someone who really stimulates your deepest desires.

 

AQUARIUS: Eclipses affect your finances this month and you may be seeing an end to one source of income, which in most cases has become a burdensome prospect or enterprise anyway, in order to make room for new growth (which you are likely to discover closer to the end of the year). You will find prosperity through a partner’s income or with a grant or loan right now, though the twists and turns of Mercury retrograde over the next few weeks will slow the process accordingly. News and developments unfolding from behind the scenes between the 20th – 23rd will reveal the missing links and from there you will be ready to move forward. Professionally you get a big boost from the 23rd, as positive influences help remedy some of the more abrasive challenges that have underscored your career quest for most of the year. Socially this remains a vibrant and exciting period, with Venus and Jupiter both stimulating genuine feel good vibes for you, and the weekend of the 17th an incredibly potent period for love and relationship building, you can anticipate some fun and revelry as well.

 

PISCES: It can be a volatile if not life changing month for the Fishes, with a huge culmination or meeting with destiny on the cards, particularly in regard to a key relationship. Partnerships are evolving at incredible speed right now, (look to the dates of both eclipses for crucial events) and even with a Mercury retrograde muddying the water, where you wind up at the end of this transformational month is going to look a whole lot different for you than where it began! With the dankness of the Saturn – Neptune square coming to closure, you will begin to see more clearly in the near future who or what your heart truly seeks. Thunderbolts and unexpected meetings or developments are stimulated, and the revelation of a soul mate connection is possible that leads you there. A conflict mid month can trigger professional anxiety or restlessness. Use the very positive days that follow (September 17th – 19th) to make financial inroads and grow your prosperity and reputation. A positive attitude will take you very far.

STARGAZER FORECAST NOVEMBER 2015

TANGENT NEPTUNE: UNDER THE INFLUENCE

The first week of the month bustles with activity, a pragmatic, but passionate energy is prevalent as Sun transits Scorpio and Venus, Mars and Jupiter continue through Virgo. This is a great time to take action on projects that require organization and attention to detail, as we’ll feel very productive in the days leading up to the compelling New Moon in Scorpio, November 11th. The New Moon connects intimately with the Jupiter – Pluto trine, and has powerful, expansive overtones. Meanwhile, brash Uranus in Aries forms a strange alinement called a Yod impacting the 17’ Aries/Libra midpoint. It seems whatever begins now does so quite suddenly or in a very unexpected way. There may be an astonishing opportunity to engage an innovative new course of activity. For clues think back to what was initiated last March – April. Both the Sun and Jupiter form their exact, individual quincunxes to Uranus in the days leading up to the New Moon, so news may come in on the 5th or 9th that requires swift thinking or decision making. The pace is very brisk and in some cases news or events will be somewhat startling! Get as much of the organizing and nitty gritty detail oriented stuff done as possible during the first week. Venus and Mars move into airy Libra in the second week and the ambience will become quite social, and less work oriented, unless you work in the arts, that is!

Venus from Libra makes several key aspects this month, and lovers and partners will be connecting passionately (Venus conjunct Mars) and making binding commitments (Venus sextile Saturn) in this phase. More disruptive influences (square Pluto/opposite Uranus) suggest reappraisal of these commitments and can potentially signal endings for some. The dynamics these aspects bring on can be destabilizing, but are really just meant to test to durability of our bonds. Venus – Pluto signifies a turning point that will transform a relationship, it will either deepen in intimacy or falter. The Uranus connection can be quite exhilarating. Time to try something new, maybe with someone new? Electrical and impulsive forces will be at work. It’s an exciting month for love! With Venus in play, the areas of love and finance are the foremost indicated, but looking to see the house in your chart Venus is ruler of will also reveal clues as to where you might experience activity at these times.

The Sun – Mercury cycle begins on the 17th from 24 Scorpio. It is from here we set the agenda of our daily activities for the next 4 months. This thrust of our communications will endure and see modification during the next Mercury retrograde phase (January 2016). (I will be including a deeper analysis and guidelines for using the Sun – Mercury cycles in my 2016 report.)

The Neptune – Saturn square forms exact this month, it’s possible the curtain rises on an inconvenient truth, shattering an illusion that we have for too long turned a blind eye to. This is an undertone that will affect us for the coming year, with the third, final aspect occurring (due to the retrograde periods) September 2016. Neptune energy can be quite elusive and evasive, though the reasons for this are actually far more complex than one might realize, and can be rooted in deep feelings of inadequacy or shrouded in such intensified idealism that it makes it impossible to settle for anything that exists in the ordinary world. Neptune far prefers the fantasy to the reality and would much rather create the perfect a scene in the imagination than to deal with the real flesh, blood and potential imperfections a confrontation in meatspace might reveal. This can be especially pernicious in relationships where we might keep our partner at a safe distance, just far enough away to not have to observe what might be undesirable characteristics while indulging perpetually in fantasy about the circumstances, padding the details with what we fancy rather than what’s real. This applies to any area in which Neptune is operating in your chart right now (read for your ascendant for the dirty details). There can be some anxiety accompanying this transit where we realize we have deluded ourselves about circumstances or individuals we had chosen to perceive as faultless. Beneath that gauzy and alluring veneer, we begin to see the cracks, and the extent to which this illusion has been perpetuated, the harder it will be to ultimately accept this reality.

Saturn, on the other hand is only about what’s real, and has a reputation for being tough or harsh, particularly where our deepest sense of idealism would seek to prevail. The interaction of these two, will thus be problematic where we have entertained an illusion rather than the truth. Neptune seeks to release and let everything go. Saturn is about taking responsibility and administrating over the environment in which it finds itself. Whereas Neptune represents a situation we may have idealized, Saturn is about getting serious and with these two acting upon each other some friction where we must acknowledge the distinction between fact and fiction. Neptune represents the ability to transcend, whereas Saturn tends to be the work and obligation that we are trying to transcend. It’s easy to knock Saturn, but keep in mind, it is this planet that offers security, stability and maturity. The themes of “getting real” and accepting and setting some boundaries becomes important over the coming year. In several ways, seeing the reality of a situation and removing some of the fuzzy edges from our vision can be a really positive adjustment. By acknowledging the truth of what is and what is not yet, we can get to work on materializing the vision Neptune is providing when reality comes up short.

It’s also possible something really quite lovely is emerging, that serendipity has brought forth an extraordinary and beautiful circumstance, though perhaps it is not yet tenable within your life structure. In this case this aspect will challenge you to confront this now and throughout next year to build a structure that will be supportive to this. There is the potential that the desire to obtain the divine and etherial essence Neptune is expressing for us individually will drive us to overcome a major obstacle. In this way the theme over the next 10 months can be be making the unreal or impossible into the real.

The vast reorganization required from now through next September likely stems back to circumstances that had coalesced in mid 2013. Jupiter/Cancer, Saturn/Scorpio and Neptune/Pisces sat in a comfortable trine, and developments during this period were easy to make and lent to a positive and stable emotional ambience. The the test now is to rearrange our lives around all that has happened since, to take what was learned from the highly introspective and cathartic Saturn – Scorpio phase and turn it out into the world at large. The original conjunction occurred in 1989, (if you can remember that far back, 😉 ) so something that began for you personally in that period is being triggered. To the extent we have not lived up to the visionary desires of Neptune, this period can be one of getting it together and going for it. A square aspect provides tension and frustration, but this energy creates the friction necessary to stimulate us to take action. Saturn in Sagittarius is a diamond tipped arrow, the issue with Saturn in the apex of the Nodal T-square is where you need to set your target. From November 12, 2015, that target is where Virgo (transiting North Node) lies within your chart.

As Saturn works upon Neptune, so does Neptune’s dissolving qualities affect Saturn, and it’s ability to build in concrete terms. Over the next year or so, it’s possible to feel a pervasive sense of futility in trying to organize the affairs of the house being transited by Saturn as well as in life in general. There may be an existential crisis at a very quiet, subjective level transpiring over the course of this transit, a niggling sense of “why bother?” that may hinder our undertakings. This will become most critical as Saturn squares the Nodal Axis next year, and when the South Node conjuncts Neptune in late October – early November 2016.

Unlike, say, a disruptive Uranus influence, the quality of energy expressed by a Saturn – Neptune combination is slow and pervasive. It’s unlikely a single event will send your life spiraling into disarray, rather expect a process to unfold over the next year which will require an appraisal of both the long range goals (Saturn) and the vision-inspiration-intuition (Neptune) which could provide a challenging balance act. The final aspect occurs September 10th, 2016 so it’s from here we will see some relief and resolution, though the South Node conjunction to Neptune aspect that follows in November next year indicates the need to release a heavy burden related to the Neptune issue. This can be quite cathartic, actually, especially where the negative attributes of Neptune (addiction, illusion, dissipation) are being eradicated. In the event we fought to preserve an ideal state, we may be very disappointed over what we fought for, particularly if we learn this was bull shit all along. In this way the Saturn square is very useful and instructive, it points us to our potential blind spots and gives us time reconcile our issues prior to the South Node transit, which will be far more brutal if we let those Neptune issues slide too far out of control.

MONTHLY HOROSCOPE BY SIGN:

(Visit astro.com to get your full chart for free. Reading for your Sun as well as Rising sign is advised!)

ARIES: Work and a financial emphasis predominates over the first few weeks. A New Moon in Scorpio on the 11th points to financial developments associated with loans, grants or a partner’s income. This New Moon connects powerfully to Jupiter and Pluto and you may be getting money to start a new business venture or increase the operations of an existing one at this time. The 10th and 17th are suited for conversations relating to money and making financial plans. Venus (November 9th) and Mars (November 13th) move into the area of committed relationships, and a partnership deepens considerably in this phase: the 13th and 24th are phenomenal for travel and making plans for the future. The adoration you receive from your spouse or partner enlivens you in this phase. The 23rd features a very exciting surprise from your sweetheart, or possibly a meeting with an unexpected, but kindred spirit. Things get easier for you after New Moon. A sense of vitality and rebirth prevail. Saturn – Neptune speaks to your secrets. A hidden or obscured matter is obfuscating your progress in your educational or publishing goals and ability to expand your influence in the world at large. Releasing a subconscious pattern of behavior is possible now and should be attended to, particularly if addiction or dependency is implicated.

TAURUS: A close relationship may be coming into focus, and the New Moon in Scorpio on the 11th is the ideal time to meet someone with incredible potential or make a commitment. Venus and Mars combine in your house of True Romance on November 1st, and an enticing affair may escalate quickly. The New Moon combines with Jupiter and Pluto, suggesting passion and pleasure feature largely into any association you might make now. Mercury in this area from the 3rd – 20th signals the lines of communication are wide open. The emphasis shifts to work in second half, and the final week of the month sees you in a hard working to burn out phase. Easy does it! You can really crash around the 20th or 23rd if you push yourself too hard. Assignments will be abundant and tap your natural creativity. The 24th sees a more moderated pace. Saturn – Neptune can speak to a dilemma in an intimate relationship. A casual attitude towards your lover or commitments to friends, networks or an organization may be inhibiting the cultivation of depth in your closest commitment.

GEMINI: A really new way of life and how you manage your health or even a new job or work assignment is due around the New Moon on the 11th. This taps right into changes you have experienced in the domestic arena over the last few months, and a significant development on the 2nd that changes everything for the better. If you recently moved or made substantial changes you reap the rewards now through increased vitality and productivity. Mercury brings in the details from the 3rd – 20th. From this place of greater stability you find you are really ready to engage in a pleasure pursuit, as creativity and romance feature largely while Venus (from November 9th) and Mars (November 13th) transit the house of self expression and love affairs.
