Horoscope for the Week: February 23, 2018

 

Tip of the Week: Pisces time is well underway with five planets in the slippery and elusive sign of the fish. Supported by powerful currents triggered by the recent Solar Eclipse in the late degree of Aquarius, 2018 is really beginning to roll. That eclipse also unleashed the barking Earth Dog. You get bet what it is up to; digging for bones and other treasures, of course. Saturn in Capricorn and Uranus entering Taurus in May corresponds well to this theme.

The Dog is known to be black and white in their attitudes. Are you friend or foe? Decide quickly. Well, the Dog might decide for you, actually. It could amount to whether they consider you to be worthy of friendship. Loyalty to those they love, often linked to those who feed them, is without question.

Meanwhile, Sun, Mercury, Venus, Chiron and Neptune in Pisces is a very noteworthy stellium of focus. It brings inspirations and the invitation to dream. Yet, it also implies brainstorming to generate ideas and outline plans, even. Mercury conjunct Venus comes into wide orb by about February 22 and actually become conjunct on March 4th and will remain closely aligned all the way until Spring Equinox due to Mercury turning Retrograde in Aries. More on that later…

 Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

Ducking out of the limelight for a while will prove rewarding. Getting away or going on some kind of retreat would be ideal. Yes, travel is indicated. If you can’t get away literally, find another way as with a good book perhaps. Meanwhile, settling accounts and attending to various financial interests and responsibilities is featured.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)

Sometimes the waters are choppy while at others smooth and calm yet the waves can prove to be large and powerful as well. This metaphor describes what is indicated now. Your passions are high as well and you want to engage. Joining with friends of like mind and shared interest is likely. Will you enjoy reverie together or actually ride? It’s all good.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

A series of complex interactions are keeping you busy. Some of these are linked to your public and professional life. Some edgy interactions are likely and pushing you to be faithful and positive, but you have to work at it. These setbacks may also be linked to others close to you undergoing personal challenges. Persevere faithfully.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

Stepping back to see a bigger picture to reassess who you are at this stage of your journey and what you want is a central theme. It does require some extra effort, yet it may amount to creative thinking more than physical effort. Taking time to reflect on what is important and what you truly feel you need beyond outer pressures could save you time and effort.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

You are mid-way through a potentially deep and difficult cycle. Positively, you are purging and releasing things from your life that no longer serve a meaningful purpose. This could include certain relationship involvements. But, it could include some of your own attitudes and approaches to things. Amidst it all, clarity breeds confidence.

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

Dealing with others of late brings a rich blend of results ranging from the extraordinary to the utter dismal. The negative end may not be devastating, but at least annoying and disappointing. It may seem as though people and situations are not as reliable as they used to be. It may seem that much is simply disintegrating. Trust the process and keep on moving on accordingly.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Making Changes and adjustments in your daily rhythm and routine is likely now. Your choices are linked to financial goals and interests. Serious consideration of new employment is a distinct possibility. Your ambitions continue to climb and your energy levels too are supporting you to answer the call.

 Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

A feature of being the most complex sign of the zodiac is that you are very proud and protective of your unique sense of individuality. In other words, others may find you to be quite an enigma. Asserting your sense of power feels important now and this comes with a rebellious spirit. Yet, situations call for humility and cooperation.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

A journey within to lay claim to your deepest truths and your heart’s true desire continues. If you move beyond guilt, attachment, fear and such and can simply identify what you feel you need and want, you will be more than halfway there. Where the results are mixed and involving others, a process of dialogue will bring you closer to your dreams.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Due to a series of changes and endings in your life, you find yourself making new connections. Some of these are relatively obvious and outer while others are directed to access your truth. A process of critical analysis is implied. What you are quickly discovering is that your entire scope of perceptions is also steadily undergoing changes causing you to make new associations.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

Your perceptions and priorities are steadily changing. Each is activating the other and it is difficult to know which started first. The result is a push to enter the public arena with a new sense of resolve. At this point, a spirited assertion balanced by a sober appreciation of the existing outer realities should produce satisfactory results.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)

Inspirations to take new leads are yours to enjoy and act upon now. Seeing a bigger picture is featured. This can include long-term considerations but also exploring new arenas, markets and locations altogether. As well, forging new alliances is also likely. The main goal now is that you prepare the ground for more creativity and diversity.

 

Horoscope for the Week: February 16, 2018

 

The 1st Solar Eclipse of 2018 occurs on February 15th. It is packed with a lot of power potential. Yet, there stands to be a pull to the past tugging against a push for the future.It is generally the norm to want to adapt to the changing times, but some are destined to slow an otherwise excessively fast pace which will be deemed to be recklessly fast by some. Humanity is turning a sharp corner this year and, as usual, the results will be mixed.

The big news is the steadily emerging realization that an economic revolution that has already been underway for since 2009 in the form of crypto-currencies will likely become much bigger in the news. Interestingly, 2009 was the first 11 year since 1910 which was the second of two last century. But there will be one every 9 years in this new century and millennium for centuries to come! 11 is the number of metaphysics and this suggests a continual process of changes that will prove revolutionary and paradoxical all the way.

Chinese New Year always begins with the New Moon in Aquarius. The Chinese may not have consciously intended it to work that way, but it does and it quite apropos given the unique fact that the New Year always begins on a different day from year to year somewhere between January 20 to February 18th. This is the Year of the Earth Dog. ~ Gung Hey Fat Choy! This is one of the many dialects in China that says: Happy New Year!

 Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

When it comes to friends, it is important to be your own best one. This is true for all of us. Then, all your outer best friends will become sparkling clear: those who support you to be your own. Doing so is not selfish, it is authentic. When you do it with love, you operate from your heart center and generosity and sharing naturally flow. The time is right to meditate on the meaning of true love.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)

The surf is up, but it may not be literal waves that you are riding. They could manifest as waves of ambition and determination combined with inspiration and love, for example. Like big blue-green surges under a clear blue ‘chemtrail-less’ sky, as nature intended it, and as the golden rays penetrate warmth down to your bones. Big times for you!

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

Sweet dreams are flowing through your consciousness. Like a blissful reverie, you can linger there all day. Yet, you are also feeling the push to make those dreams so, to manifest them in the material. A healthy dose of creative discipline is at least one cornerstone of this process. The good news is that it will flow naturally as soon as you begin.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

Visions of possibility have held you captivated for some weeks now, maybe even months. To this end, you have recently felt the urge to purge and replace the old with the new. Is it possessions or relationships, or thoughts or attitudes or… that you have been recycling. Anyway, that cycle is giving way now to a fuller spectrum of that envisioning process.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

Fantasies have their place and, invited or not, they have made their way into the deepest reaches of your mind. This is where your imagination likes to engage and play, as well. This process will not only continue, it will deepen over the coming weeks. It will have an impact on your relationship life as well. All the while, it is good to discern between what is fantasy and what is reality.

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

The need to balancing your daily realities with your dreams of possibility has been extra important of late. Dreams have a way of pushing through when their timing of destiny has arrived. As well, if you are experiencing repressions and hunger, they will push their way into consciousness even more strongly. If necessary, they will also push you to dig deep to excavate the truth of your desires.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

A process of stretching your mind to embrace new possibilities continues. In addition to inspiration, necessity may also be playing a role. You have come this far and now it is time to push through to a whole new level of success. Yet, you have to be willing to do the work and pay the price. This includes confronting possible fears. Don’t proudly defend, honestly identify.

 Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Laying claim to the full measure of your sense of individuality is extra important to you now. Creative inspirations of possibility have been taunting you to go the extra distance. You, more than most, know that doing so requires even more access to who you are and why you are here. But, if you don’t know this as fully as you might benefit from doing so, here is your invitation.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your mind has been racing with thoughts and ideas. A growing sense of determination to explore new territory is featured. Yet your focus may be at least as much to venture into the deeper reaches of your own mind than even to explore foreign and exotic lands somewhere remote on the planet. At least if you can’t get away literally, you have a fluid backup plan.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Somehow over the past few months, you have likely taken a definite turn. Old commitments no longer have the grip they once did and you find yourself needing to decipher your next best direction. A top priority is to increase your luck and opportunity by reaching out to friends new and old. Contacts, connections, reconnections; sounds like a social media party.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

Balancing focus with flexibility and replacing fear with faith is an important Current theme. Acceptance of what it combined with a spirit of adventure will activate your inner reserves of confidence. A core theme has and continues to surround opening your mind to new modes of perception and self-concepts.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)

The Sun entering your sign this week will activate new initiatives. With the energies of the Solar Eclipse close enough to your sign, you will feel its impact, even if you are born later in March, actually. It will activate you to make connections and will also stimulate the flow of earned rewards and karmic returns. Network!

Horoscope for the Week: February 9, 2018

A historical Lunar Eclipse in our rearview, the implications of which linger like a large Tibetan Bell for those destined to receive its powerful impulse, the first of 4 Solar Eclipses fast approaches. Few assume that 2018, the Universal 11-Year, the root Master Number in Numerology, is destined to be anything less than extraordinary and pivotal. The biggest impact stands to be on our perceptions and interpretations of what we call reality, both individually and collectively. Many people are likely to reach for tradition as paradox steadily emerges as a new norm.

Currently and at the time of the Solar Eclipse on February 15th, Mercury and Venus on either side of the Sun from our vantage here on earth will produce an anchoring theme until the next Solar Eclipse in July. Mercury as the scout planet serves be leading with information rather coldly, and can be described as calculating, alert, observant, pragmatic, factual, cold, callous, independent, self-sufficient, committed to self especially, non- sentimental, decisive, leader, indifferent, dictatorial.

Fortunately, Mercury in Aquarius is in an auspicious sign placement usually manifesting as open-mindedness and is also quite future-oriented. Uranus rules Aquarius and therefore is the dispositor of this intellectual transference. Since Uranus is in Aries, the tone and probably action will include an added measure of pioneering assertion and pointedness. Mars is the ruler of Aries so it, in turn, will transfer the energy and with it in Sagittarius, we get another dose of fire. Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius in Scorpio, co-ruled by Mars, will increase this overall impulse in a deep way, like an underground explosion. Exciting times! How are these energies destined to impact you? sunstarastrology@gmail.com

 

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

Sometimes you want to go big, while at others you want to dive deep, and sometimes you want both, like now. How to achieve this goal is for you to decide. At worst, you are feeling a push-pull stress factor going on inside you. The solution to the riddle is available regardless of your circumstance. Ask how and be open to receive an answer.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)

Your ambitions continue to steadily rise. You are inspired by the prospect of revealing yet another layer of what makes you unique and special. Yet, you also feel like ducking out of the limelight these days. This is a call within to lay claim to what makes you special to you yourself. It likely has to do with enjoying creative expression, as an end in itself.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

Big shifts are shaking and they may be leaving you feeling a bit insecure. Yet, these can be interpreted as representing an invitation to expand your perspectives. Doing so may require courage, so add that to the top of your objectives. Consider that over analysis and excess imagination are the instigators of fear.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

You are undergoing a mini-cycle of change. You usual self-concept and mode of perspectives is under review. Strange and inexplicable events may be prompting you to question things, perhaps everything. This can be the source of anxiety. Keep breathing and allow the process to unfold. Enjoy entertaining concepts and perspectives you have not before considered.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

The world is your oyster. Now, why don’t others quite recognize that? You are willing to share it… Playing with wild ideas and concepts has everyone talking these days. For your part, you want to dive right in and deeply too. Engaging with others to share the experience is a source of excitement and inspiration. But first, you want to make it clear whose oyster it is…

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

Talk about multi-dimensionality! Okay, perhaps you are simply multitasking. Either way, you are digging deeper than you have for a while. This is producing a process of change in your attitude and usual lifestyle rhythms. Exercising more discipline with time management could prove helpful, even necessary. Play with time and break free of repetitive patterns.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Gadzooks Picasso, you are feeling creative these days. Whether playing, dancing, performing, inventing, expressing, creating, making love…, you are in the mood to try new approaches. Your ambitions are strong and your energy levels are high so the time is right to take the initiative. Think beyond usual perimeters and parameters then ride that thought wave.

 Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Reaching beyond existing limits continues. A financial increase is featured. Yet, you feel determined to do it your way. While you want more, you are extra reluctant to settle for average or ordinary. This resolve may be pushing you, therefore, to be inventive. Brainstorming for ideas is likely too. Go crazy and get outlandish to stretch your mind.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Sometimes we expand without and sometimes within and sometimes both. This is one of those times when inner and outer reaching is important, perhaps necessary. The outer reach is to open your mind to new perspectives and interpretations. The inner reach is to access hidden reserves of faith. Help is available in both domains, but you have to ask for it.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Many changes over the past year continue to produce waves both within and without. Although it is likely that your scope of friends and alliances has likely grown, you find yourself having to access courage and face some fears. Knowing your best direction is extra important now and this is a core motivation behind your process.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

Are you ready to take new initiatives? Well, ready or not, the time has come for you to do so. This will become increasingly apparent over the next 2-3 weeks and will linger throughout spring too. The main thing now is an attitude of willingness. Once it is securely in place, your focus and determination to succeed will come to the fore.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)

A concentrated, creative focus is underway. You are determined to make positive changes in your overall life flow. A financial increase is likely to be a central theme. A learning curve is implied and may require that you share knowledge and skills development as much as receive it. The time is right to entertain new methods and strategies.

 

Horoscope for the Week: February 2, 2018

 

Month # 2 of Year # 11 begins. 11 is the primary Master Number in Numerology and can be understood not only as a metaphysical number but, more accurately, as the Number of Metaphysics. Generally, 11 can be understood as a number symbolic of higher levels of intelligence and creativity. This can be understood as the balance and dynamic interaction of the right and the left brain. This is the high side of 11.

This is not to say that every person who has 11 in their birth date or astrology is a creative genius. In fact, 11 can also be understood as ‘a number to be mastered’. People born on either the 11th day or, perhaps to a lesser extent the 29th day, or month (November) or during an 11-year, such as 2009 and 2018, or who have the sign of Aquarius strongly activated in their chart or with the Sun, Moon or several planets in the 11th House are, or will be (children born in 2018), challenged to learn to listen deeply and pay closer attention to what others are saying and doing.

This is important to overcome the pitfalls of making assumptions based on subconscious overconfidence in their interpretation, which has the tendency to produce fixed convictions and polarized perspectives which often result in interpersonal conflict and subsequent frustration and insecurity when others react to these strong assertions. In other words, they may be guilty of creative thinking that is fabricating reality or fudging the facts without realizing it and then assumes an attitude or stance of certainty and conclusion in their convictions.  This may also prove to be generally true for us all in 2018.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

Social involvements with friends of late are a source of entertainment and new realizations. You are inspired to take action on some of these, which could include travel plans. Financial interests and/or concerns remain prominently on your mind. You yearn for a breakthrough or is it a breakaway? Adventure is calling.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)

You yearn to shake-things-up in your public and professional life. Your ambitions are strong these days and increase and expansion are topping your list. Brainstorming for new ideas and strategies may feel necessary. Adding to your tool list or implementing fresh approaches and strategies is likely. Meanwhile, measurable changes in your usual approaches are brewing.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

Some rather serious and sobering events last month have shifted to give way to more exciting and enjoyable times including cultural events. Big changes continue to percolate, however, and represent a deep process of change – a veritable metamorphosis. The process will continue for many months but you may already be able to detect it.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

New commitments that began as early as December have required more discipline, patience and commitment than perhaps anticipated. These are all a feature of big changes in your overall public status. Positively, these have produced some pleasant, unexpected turns. One thing seems certain, everything feels different somehow.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

New developments are stirring on relationship fronts. Experimenting with new approaches is a source of excitement. These may be linked to innovative and technological strategies. You have recently entered an important cycle linked to knowledge and the cultivation and refinement of latent skills and talents.

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

If noticeable changes are not unfolding in your life, you may want them to be and they likely will be soon. It may take until later in February, however, before they become really evident. So, anticipate that and make your preparations accordingly. Covering a lot of ground implies multi-tasking and/or having a variety of projects on the go.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You are in a creative cycle and it just got a boost of inspiration which is serving to ignite your intuitions. You are on a search for new talents, skills and investment opportunities. Dreams of activating new financial streams linger day and night. Contending with inner resistance, perhaps linked to hidden fears, is important for success.

 Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Gathering facts, outlining a plan and setting clear and strong intentions, continues as a central theme. Whether in your actual lair or the lab of your mind, the drafting process is underway. A learning curve is implied, but the pace is slow and steady. This is an expansive time and your ambitions are strongly set on achieving a breakthrough.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You are beginning to see the world as with new eyes. The currents of change are pushing you to achieve new perspectives of both yourself and the world and yourself in the world. If you have fixed convictions about these things you may be undergoing a lot of internal conflicts. Focus to identify fears causing you to reactively control and trust the flow.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Many fresh starts are underway. These come on the heels of many changes and probably of endings that culminated late last year. The pace of change since has been fast and you may have and continue to feel challenged to catch-up. Positively, you are excited regarding the prospects of exploring new possibilities and on a variety of fronts.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

The coming Solar Eclipse New Moon in your sign on February 15th is certain to activate measurable changes in your life. This is especially true if you were born on or between February 11 and 19th and probably even more so if between the 14th and 16th. As ever, there are many factors to consider. In any case, enjoy the current pace and get ready for things to accelerate.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)

A busy time behind the scenes continues. Things have probably taken off early for you this year. A push in your public and professional life is indicated. By now, it has lead you to do the work. A steadily changing financial picture is motivating your focus, either by inspiration or necessity, or both. Persevere patiently by working on your core strengths and foundation-building projects.

 

Horoscope for the Week: January 26, 2018

The Aquarius cycle is underway and is packed with goodies. First, the Super ‘Blue’ Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on January 31st is the buzz on the streets everywhere. Technically and traditionally, this is not really a ‘Blue Moon’, but due to modern errors made by astronomers, two Full Moons in the same month now qualify. Traditionally, a true Blue Moon occurs when it occurs twice in the same Zodiac Sign, which is much rarer.

As it is, the ‘Super’ eclipsed ‘copper colored’ moon will specifically be visible to people living in most countries and locations in the region of the Pacific Ocean. That’s the phenomenology or outer mechanics and appearance of it. The astrology focuses on its deeper meaning and implications. Eclipses are always potent activations of destiny. Yet, it should be noted that this is true only if it is your destiny to be activated at this time. It comes down to the science of degrees and other specifics of your Birth Chart. 3 degrees either side of 11 Leo 37 is the hot spot and the close a planet in your chart is to exact, the hotter the effect. Thus, 8 Leo 37 to 13 Leo 37 is the hot spot zone. Sometimes the orb of influence can reach a little wider but the effect will be milder, perhaps as much as 4 degrees wider.

Mars now in Sagittarius and Mercury set to enter Aquarius just minutes following the exact time of the historical Full Moon adds its own flair of excitement. Technically, therefore, Mercury will be at the critical 29th degree of Capricorn at the exact moment the Moon is full an eclipsed. Woven within this dynamic is an emphasis on economic power plays. By now, the pace of things has picked up and 2018 is poised to enter high gear within the next 10-days. Watch for synchronicities of these themes starting this week. As dramatic as it sounds, there are actually some pure silver linings in the current planetary alignments.

As ever, the actual themes, areas of life affected and subsequent timing is specific to individuals, meaning ‘legal person’ or entity and according to the specifics of their destiny. Generic forecasts are just that and can prove useful, yet remain relative. The specific destiny of a ‘legal person’ is subject to the moment of first breath, which in the case of a legal entity such as a country, city, company or institution… is based on the moment and location of the actual, official, legal signature.

 

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

Pushing your interests and passions to the next level will become evident this week. Financial dealings and interests continue to play an important role. In fact, you may be pushing even harder; going for bigger stakes yet. Meanwhile, gatherings with friends new and old is a source of excitement and may clarify who you feel you are and are not.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)

Your ambitions are rising and deepening too. It as though all the sails are open and the torque on the keel is that much stronger as if pulling the boat a bit deeper. Your focus is strongly on business. Yet, there is also much to learn and it may prove wise to listen and observe more than express your own thoughts. Old tools, equipment, and approaches are upgraded.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

Circumstances are pushing you deeper to lay claim to access your reserves of confidence and faith. Assertive and perhaps pushy people on relationship fronts are pushing you to stand in your truth. You have something special you want to share and you want to do it your way. You will be diplomatic in your approach as long as your choices are fully respected.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

You are undergoing a cycle of change. Your career is a likely area of focus. Your direction and resolve may not be as clear as they used to be. This could throw you in on yourself to decipher who you feel you truly are and what you need.  This process is likely to continue for several weeks. Meanwhile, returns on investment are evident.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

New sparks of excitement on relationship fronts are gaining your full attention. These are inspiring you to take action. Aspects of your usual philosophy are getting a jolt, probably for the better but you are challenged to tune-in and cooperate. A learning curve is implied and could manifest as a prolonged curse of study or on the job training.

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

Changes in your lifestyle are underway. You are awakening to the need for adjustments, perhaps a string of them. Quick fixes and schemes to shortcut the process will probably not work. This is a call to play the long game and focus to work more patiently. Make lists, set goals in categories of short, medium, and long and lay claim to your power!

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You are in a creative and perhaps inventive mood. Outer changes, especially on relationship fronts, are both a source of inspiration and instigation. Financial interests are featured and are spurring you into action. Your energy levels are probably running high and you want respectable returns. At deeper levels, you are challenged to face your fears to access hidden reserves of power.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Things are shaking close to home. These are affecting your usual lifestyle rhythms. The pursuit of knowledge that began last month progresses to the next phase.  Research and perhaps an investigation of key knowledge and answers feel important. You want certain knowledge and answers so you can plan ahead and engage the power of intention to work for you.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21

A flow of new perspectives has begun to enter into your awareness. Fueled by desires to both access your hidden reserves of confidence and faith and to express your convictions, you are taking new leads. Concentrating your focus and perhaps your prayers too, to create a miracle is your aim. In some respects, it may feel like you are paying debts or dues.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

A promising flow of resources, perhaps unexpected, are coming in now. Circumstances may be pushing you to know your direction and to be more disciplined than you have had to be for some time. Pushing through any lingering fears is featured. Making the most of friends and allies, both human and angelic, is your silent prayer.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

The Sun in Aquarius is a sign of taking new leads. These include new forms of knowledge. You are determined to push through resistance of any kind, internal or external. Although you probably have reason to feel optimistic, your journey may well represent an uphill climb. This will likely prove true throughout 2018, so pace yourself and persevere faithfully.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)

A busy time behind the scenes is likely now. This includes inner work as well as external projects. You are excited to forge ahead professionally and/or publically and a process of learning new skills is implied. Returns for past efforts are flowing in and this will continue for many months. Hopefully, you have been diligent and wise.

Horoscope for the Week: January 19, 2018

This is the dawning of the sign of Aquarius. Under the light of the first New Moon of 2018 which occurred on January 16th at 26 Capricorn, the Sun enters Aquarius on January 19th, right on time. Thus begins the month-long period that can be understood as Aquarius time. Despite the annual fluctuations in the weather, what is significant about each Zodiac sign time period each year is the Sun’s light. There may be microns of difference from one year to the next, but each year on this day, the Sun will appear to rise at the same time in each respective geographical location. This is basically how the Tropical Zodiac works.

Regarding the planetary line-up, the Moon, followed by Venus and now the Sun cut the Capricorn scene leaving Pluto, Saturn, and Mercury to their serious conversations about reality and the global economy, Trump and Korea… After all, discussions of Hollywood scandals and immanent disclosures of legions of alien species both living among us and orbiting the planet, occupying bases on the Moon, Mars and the satellites of Jupiter and Mars is much more interesting, and important…. ‘See the bigger picture!’

On January 31st, the first Lunar Eclipse of 2018 occurs at the 11th degree of Leo. Will it make any aspects to planets in your chart? If so, get ready for a boost, or a jolt, as the case may be. A couple of weeks later, on February 15th, the day after St. Valentine’s Serenade, the first of three Solar Eclipses, erroneously deemed a ‘Blue Moon’ will occur at 27 Aquarius serving to sow the seeds of destiny for us all, especially those with planets or angles at those degrees. 2018 may be off to something of a slow start but that is about to change.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

Some deep drums have been sounding in your world. Power moves and possibly ploys have pushed you to exercise your executive. This trend will linger but you are ready for a change of scenery and tempo. Your passions are still strong, however, and you may feel inspired to invest. Friends and fun beckon and you are keen to further explore your individuality.

 Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)

The quest for knowledge has likely been keeping you busy of late. You want the facts, answers and the truth. Yet the tide is changing. Making your presence and your interests known publically is an urge hard to control. You are bound and determined to expand your scope of influence. Going big is the theme of your resolve.

 Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

Many changes are brewing in and around you. These could manifest as endings, transformations and possibly even deaths. You are working hard to feel positive and faithful, but you may feel challenged to dig deeper than you have for some time. On the other hand, you are focused to investigate and research to get the answers you seek. 

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

Everyone is feeling the changing currents, not least of all you. These could actually be manifesting as a flow of abundance and returns for past efforts. Yet, events and trends beyond your control are challenging you to decipher where to best direct your focus and commitments. You may not have to decide now but the process will continue.

 Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

Changes in your lifestyle should be apparent by now. Positively, you feel more disciplined and determined than usual. This week, changes on relationship fronts are likely and will come with some happy returns. These will stimulate new thoughts, exchanges of ideas and philosophies too. Digging deep meanwhile is important and feels easier than expected.

 Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

A creative cycle continues. The pace may not be as fast as you would like, but it is underway. Now it is time to give more than you have for a while. As you do, new realizations will emerge, spontaneously. So, the rewards of your efforts could prove to be exponential. Your efforts may need to be directed to a variety of fronts.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

An extra busy time close to home continues. The emphasis will ease off this week. You will enter into a creative cycle that could produce new intuitions, epiphanies and inventions. These will also have the effect of shaking things up in your closest relationships. A push for greater financial returns is part of the plot.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You are in an expansive and energetic mood. Your determination to expand your position and increase your leverage on matters is extra strong. To this end, you have been extra focused on business matters and creative cooperatives. A new shift will begin this week and you will feel inspired to beautify your living space.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Major financial concerns and considerations have been on your mind of late. Generally, you are in a process of deciphering your priorities. At worst, you have been feeling the weight. Delays and setbacks may feel all too familiar. This trend will continue. However, a break in the clouds is allowing the sun to shine through.

 Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Powerful energies activating your pioneering passions have been underway over the past several weeks. These continue yet are now undergoing a shift. Deciphering your best direction remains a central theme. Changes in your priorities is applying pressure for changes to occur in your public and/or professional life

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

A good deal of activity behind the scenes has been keeping you busy. Studies are likely but they are woven with the urge to retreat. You also have been dealing with some health challenges. Sun, Venus, and Mercury entering your sign will activate new interests and pioneering initiatives. These will also inspire you to new modes of self-expression.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)

Many thoughts and ideas about the future are dancing in your mind. You feel optimistic, yet you also have work to do. This may be inner work of one kind or another. In fact, this inner work process will likely increase. If you are not consciously aware of the need for it then you may find yourself lost in thought. The time is right to break old codes and patterns.

 

Horoscope for the Week: January 12, 2018

As 2018 gets underway, a powerful line-up of planets in Capricorn is a significant sign of our times. Sun, Mercury, Venus, Saturn, and Pluto are featured in this gathering. Like a meeting for CEO’s only, all present are rather serious and controlling types. Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio meanwhile represent a pairing of another kind of power, call it private interests.

The basic positive synchronicity of this line-up could be described as a renewed sense of determination and discipline to achieve goals and realize new levels of accomplishment. The basic negative reaction could manifest as a heavy feeling, perhaps producing depression, which is common at this time of year for many people already. In the bigger picture, the global economy and the steady emergence of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies and financial mediums rising to challenge a quiet revolution of monumental might that has been underway since the early 20th century with the activation of the Federal Reserve and other financial coups from the private sector, can be recognized in this line-up, as well. Uranus steadily advancing now towards entry into Taurus in mid-May will bring these revolutions into larger global awareness over the course of 2018.

Finally, as of January 11th, Mercury cleared its retrograde shadow leading up to the 29th degree of Sagittarius and entered Capricorn shortly thereafter followed by the Moon on the 14th. On January 13 and 14th respectively, Venus then the Sun will form hard aspects to Uranus in Aries serving to give us all an extra push to act upon our goals, ambitions, and responsibilities.

2018 is off to an exciting start but brings with it a series of sobering realities. The first New Moon of the year will take place on January 16, in Capricorn and will serve to spur us into action.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

Circumstances are pushing you to exercise your executive. Your ambitions are flowing strongly and you want to get an early start. You are more fully aware that you simply cannot please all the people and you must draw clear lines. Returns for prior efforts are flowing in inspiring you to add to the list of your life goals.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)

Seeing a bigger picture and doing something about it is a current theme for you. Your sights are set on the future. Financial considerations are highlighted. Investments of one kind or another are on your mind. Higher education is a distinct possibility. Whatever you do, you are determined to expand and increase your leverage.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

Many deep and powerful changes are brewing. These are pushing you to make extra efforts including exercising faith. By month’s end, you will be more fully aware of these changes. In the short term, financial responsibilities such as taxes and/or wills and inheritances are likely areas of focus. Investigation and research are implied.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

Big changes on relationship fronts are featured now. These are linked to your employment status, career and social roles, in general. The stellium of planets in Capricorn indicate a theme of grit and grace in your dealings with others. Yet, you are likely to go the extra distance to ensure that you have made every effort to meet demands.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

Measurable changes in your daily routine, habits and lifestyle rhythms are underway. These are linked to your health and quality of life, in general. Whether by inspiration or necessity, you are digging deep and exercising more discipline than you might usually to achieve your goals. Making sacrifices feels easier than expected.

 Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

Your creative powers are on the rise. Diversity is likely as you attend to a variety of fronts and projects. A learning curve is implied and circumstances are pushing you to be more disciplined than previously. Yet you remain determined to do it your way. This week’s New Moon will serve to activate your focus.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

A good deal of energy and focus on the home front is likely now. The situation is likely to be sober and serious, perhaps even a character building ordeal. At best, you are able to take a mature and responsible approach. Repairs and renovations are possible scenarios. Financial interests and investments are featured.

 Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You are in an industrious mood and are determined to get a lot done. This is an expansive time for you with Jupiter in your sign. Mars is also in your sign giving you the strength, courage and the resolve to take pioneering leads. There are indications that you need this extra boost to tackle the challenges you must overcome.

 Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Paying extra close attention to the material realities of your life is in the spotlight. Taking stock of your assets is keeping you busy. Your self-esteem and sense of self-worth may also be under pressure. One way or another, you have some work to do. It can also be described as dues you must pay. These may be financial but they could come in the form of disciplined effort.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

This is a powerful time for you. You are determined to forge ahead. Your focus is sharp and your ambitions are rising. Before the month is out, and perhaps even within the week, you will begin to push your way into new territory. Yet, making full use of the influence of friends and the benefits of making friends, as opposed to enemies, is the wise guide to follow.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

Making some serious efforts behind the scenes for the sake of future dreams and goals is a central theme now. This will prove especially true for the next 2-3 weeks. In some respects, this represents a point of departure. Reaching for new skills and opportunities is likely and involves taking calculated risks such as writing proposals and applying for new jobs.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)

Identifying what makes you the individual you are is an important theme now. You want to break through and rise to new heights, but first, you have to determine what they are. You are willing to do what it takes yet may feel uncertain about your desired outcome. It could be described as something of a soul-searching process.

Horoscope for the week: December 22, 2017

Tip of the Week: 

Winter Solstice this year occurred on December 21, 2017, at 4:27 pm GMT. In the chart cast for this exact moment are several noteworthy aspects. These include Saturn and the Sun at almost exact conjunction with Saturn now officially in its own sign for the next 2.5 years. Mercury remains retrograde and stationary, which means by December 22nd it turns direct again. Venus is less than a couple of degrees away from exact alignment with the Galactic Center and the most recent New Moon on December 18th was within just over ½ a degree of conjunction with it as well. Jupiter at 15 Scorpio is at the exact mid-point of the North and South Node which are at 15 degrees of Leo and Aquarius respectively, otherwise understood as the apex of a T-Square. The moon is waxing and in the early degrees of Aquarius.

Winter Solstice can be understood as the ‘natural’ New Year. True, it is Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere, but when we consider the importance of the North Pole and the Pole Star, it can be appreciated that the North Pole takes on a prominence like a crown for the planet. So, this exact moment in time produces a chart that can be understood to represent important themes that will unfold over the course of the year.

While interpretations can never be pat and final in astrology because how this chart compares with that of every country, state, province, city, legal institution, and person in the world, of course, produces many expressions of the cosmic chemistry that astrology measures. Yet, we can still glean some key insights about the core themes affecting us which this week’s horoscope will emphasize. I will elaborate upon these themes in my Winter Solstice Newsletter.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)

You have arrived at a very important juncture. It comes with some rather heavy responsibilities. Who are you now may be a question on your mind? Circumstances are pushing you to be more sober and serious and disciplined. Positively, you feel the power and your ambitions are running high.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)

You have entered an expansive time. Yet, it is one that comes with some heavy responsibilities. Other power players on your stage are pushing you. This could amount to a process of breaking through to the next, higher level. A learning curve is implied and it appears to be quite steep.

 Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Some big changes are rolling in. They could be described as metamorphic. This is just the beginning stage and the process could take a few years. In the shorter term, at least, your health is a central focus. This does not mean there is anything wrong, but you are probably wise to take extra measures to be sure.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

A new round of relationships is indicated. Commitment is the keyword and the other is discipline. It is likely to occur in your professional life. Yet, either way, it will influence every area of your life. It could amount to a promotion but possibly a new position altogether. Investments are featured.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You are entering an important cycle that will involve the building of new foundations. A learning curve and what can be described as an apprenticeship is indicated. You will be required to make sincere efforts, to pay your dues. It will really get going after the next New Moon in mid-January.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)

Saturn in Capricorn and Uranus entering Taurus in 2018/19 could prove quite advantageous for you. As with others, you too will enter in upon an important learning process. Things may not develop quickly in this regard, but they will be steady. Get organized to prepare in anticipation for it.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22)

Saturn in Capricorn will push you to lay claim to your gifts. These may be hidden and not yet apparent to you. Doing so may require that you acknowledge and overcome any fears that would otherwise block you. This process will likely make you stronger and emotionally tougher. The high side is that your financial could increase measurably.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

The predicted increase and expansion linked to Jupiter in your sign has led you to an important learning cycle. The pace will probably be slow and steady and includes a process of unlearning as well. Variety is also indicated suggesting that you are attempting to attend to a variety of interests simultaneously.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

According to the 4 planets in your sign up until today.., this has probably been an expansive and exciting time. Yet, it is now also taking a strong turn to include more serious and sober considerations. This trend will continue as Venus and Mercury follow Sun and Saturn in Capricorn between now and January 11.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a very big moment for us all but perhaps for you above all others. The Sun and Saturn entering your sign within hours or each other present an interesting feature in the plot of destiny. The Sun is serving to energize and enliven, but Saturn especially is the heavyweight. At worst it will feel restrictive, at best, grounding.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

If you could you probably would duck out of the spotlight for a while. You will likely not be able to, yet, so exercise cordiality, grace, and patience. Of course, gratitude is ever the elixir of joy, so weave in plenty of it. Besides, big things are happening for you and the opportunity to enjoy quality time with loved ones is best regarded as rare and precious.

 Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)

 New opportunities are emerging, as if suddenly. The Sun/Saturn in Capricorn factor is supported by Mercury turning direct. This could have a slingshot effect publically and professionally. The final days of 2017 could bring a series of pleasant surprises. One thing seems certain, you want to make a big final push and the gods are in support

 ***********

Horoscope for the week: December 15, 2017

Tip of the Week: About once every 4 months or 3 times a year, Mercury turns retrograde. Each time it lasts about 3 weeks and is in a different sign and spans a different range of about 16 degrees. What this amounts to is that despite the common themes, no 2 cycles of Mercury Rx are quite the same. Furthermore, how it will synchronize with events and the flow of your life will also be different. Generally speaking, it will often prove disruptive, but not always.

This time Mercury is in Sagittarius and it began at 29 Sagittarius on December 3rd before coming to an apparent stop again at 13 Sagittarius on December 22nd. Few people know the actual degrees of their astrology so, regarding accessing astrological guidance and wisdom, they rely on the general interpretation offered in Horoscopes. These insights certainly can prove accurate and helpful, but will never be as precise as when it is measured in your actual Birth Chart.

Generally, Mercury Rx in Sagittarius is considered more challenging than when in other signs. It has been referred to as an indication of a ‘lost soul’ when in one’s actual Natal Chart. However, it could also produce a very a powerful and penetrating mind with a strong inclination towards philosophy and/or advanced mathematics or other studies requiring intellectual brilliance. The following insights for each sign will provide the opportunity for reflection on the synchronicities you are experiencing.

Mercury Rx in Sagittarius will generally prove more difficult for Aries, Virgo, Scorpio, and Capricorn, but the challenges for each sign are different due to the influence of the House placement along with the sign. By now, the main impact of this current cycle should be evident so you can gain some 20/20 insight on it.

 

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)

Sometimes along the way, you may wonder if you took the wrong turn, like now. When this happens, it is wise to slow down and to proceed more cautiously. Yet, Mars is in Scorpio implying that your ambitions are running extra high thus producing something of a conflict and increasing the possibility of mistakes. Slow down, listen more and deliberate on big decisions.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)

Despite opportunities to increase and expand your social outreach, Mercury Rx is leading you to observe more and speak less. This is actually more commonly the case among members of your sign, but not always. The other twist here is that other players are pushing you to engage and they are not easily resisted.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

An exciting and complex cycle is underway. Circumstances are leading you to increased social activity. However, you also may have to work harder and this includes an exercise of faith and perhaps discipline as much as, if not more than, actual physical exertion. Enjoying fun and frolic with others includes jest but may also include or even require lip service.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

There are a few indicators that this cycle of Mercury Rx may actually prove to flow your way this time. Your powers of analysis will be running strong and you are in a sporting mood. However, there is one indication that is more sour than sweet or is like a muddy puddle despite an otherwise lovely day. Skip along but keep both eyes open.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You have entered an exciting cycle. Although your confidence levels are steadily rising, it will challenge you to dig deeper. Gaining access to reserves of imagination power is featured but you may have to make extra efforts to break through your comfort zone to access it. If you do, this could lead to a very productive and creative cycle.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)

The synchronicity of this Mercury Rx combines with Sun, Saturn, and Venus influencing your home, finances and relationships. Circumstances have likely thrown you in on yourself to question, wonder and devise realistic strategies amidst an otherwise uncertain dynamic of events. Fortunately, things should stabilize before the year is out.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22)

Mercury in its retrograde cycle stands to work in your favor. At least it is supporting a clearer mind, ironically. Financial considerations remain at the forefront. These are linked to investments of various sorts which could include tools or furniture. You may still want to avoid electronics, at least until boxing week, lol!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

If you have needed to focus on things then this retrograde cycle is probably working in your favor. The downside could manifest as fixed opinions that do not benefit anyone. The time is generally right to spread your wings and even take leaps of faith. At least keeping an open mind will prove helpful and supportive of entertaining new possibilities.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

With a line-up of planets in your sign, you have the advantage of feeling inspired to explore new options. Mercury Rx among them lends support to having a clear and sharp focus on what you need to do and how. Other factors in the celestial equation indicate the ability to access hidden reserves of faith and confidence, so focus there.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

With the line-up of planets in your solar 12th House, including Mercury Rx, metaphorical images of a submarine preparing to breach the surface come to mind. The metaphor of a rocket breaking free of the pull of gravity and through the atmosphere presents a more critical and dramatic process. Either way, you are in the process of leaving one realm and entering another.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Mercury Rx and other players are serving to inspire dreams of possibility. Ideally, you have already taken the initiative and new commitments have already begun, as in 2-3 weeks ago. If you are trying to get things going now, it may feel like you are getting off on the wrong foot. But there is time to restore coordination and it is better to start ‘now’ than later.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)

Navigating a clear and reliable course of action may be the main challenge with Mercury Rx. Your confidence levels may be wavering. Positively, you are in a philosophical mood and are also able to lay claim to new tools and resources. If you are contending with any loose ends, now is a good time to address them before starting anything new.

Horoscope for the week: December 8, 2017

Tip of the Week: 

Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Saturn are all in the sign of Sagittarius at this time. What is especially noteworthy is that Mercury and Saturn are conjunct the Galactic Center which is situated at about 28 Sagittarius. Considered an especially spiritual point among many astrologers, it presents an opportunity to decipher its deeper implications. Basically, conjunctions indicate the beginning of new cycles. For Mercury, the cycle will only last for about 14 months, yet for Saturn, it marks a 29.5-year cycle! Learn more about it here: Mercury Retrograde Conjunct Saturn and the Galactic Center

It should also be noted that Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius represents a rather challenging theme. It has been described as the mark of a lost soul. On the high side, Mercury Rx in Sagittarius can prove to be particularly philosophical and indicative of a process of earnestly seeking truths, a veritable vision quest, a search for a holy grail.

Thus, the combination of Mercury conjunct Saturn at this very particular time when it is conjunct the Galactic Center and which only occurs once in just shy of three decades suggests that this synchronicity of events occurring at this pivotal time on human history will activate a deep search for truth by humanity as a whole. Considering the plight of the human condition despite our many advances, the activation of such a quest to find, reclaim or rediscover what we have lost, in this case, a clear understanding and appreciation of the human soul, is very apt indeed.

Astrology has ever and will ever present a strong testimony to the deeper implications of existence which includes the understanding that human beings are spiritual beings having human experiences, souls incarnate in the school of life seeing opportunities for spiritual growth. It may be further added, that the deeper meaning of this incarnation process is to provide opportunities for us to learn to be responsible co-creators.

 

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)

A blend of adventure and ambition is guiding your focus now. You want to explore and experience your free spirit, yet you have your sights set on the bottom line. The emphasis will shift to the practical side this week, so keep breathing and exercise patience lest wanderlust leads you to soon regret irreversible choices and actions.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)

Some big deals are underway and require your full attention. While you are eager to increase your outreach and scope of influence with others, you are also happy to speak less and watch and listen more as things unfold. You will likely enter a round of tough negotiations and this will require you feel attention, possibly supported by background research.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You have entered a dynamic, if complex, social cycle. The complexity includes the urge to say to others what you believe will prove pleasing to them while simultaneously wanting to speak your truth. This is a call for diplomatic strategy and it will require effort and concentration to strike the ideal balance.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Obtaining specific knowledge and answers characterizes current cycles of influence. Your passions and ambitions are running high and probably include a rebellious edge. Feeling as confident as you would like, however, may be a challenge. This could trigger a reactive and even aggressive attitude. Focus to keep your cool in the heat.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You have entered an exciting cycle. Although your confidence levels are steadily rising, it will challenge you to dig deeper. Gaining access to reserves of imagination power is featured but you may have to make extra efforts to break through your comfort zone to access it. If you do, this could lead to a very productive and creative cycle.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)

You have entered a rather adventurous cycle. It includes attending to a variety of fronts and multi-tasking efforts. As well, you may find yourself traveling more. You can expect this trend to continue. Mercury retrograde will challenge you to identify what truly holds meaning and purpose to you. Weed out non-essentials.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22)

A busy cycle continues. Circumstances are pushing you to explore new possibilities. Financial interests, ambitions and/or pressures are motivating your focus. This trend will continue and, in fact, deepen starting this week. All the while, your health is probably more of a priority than anything else and you are wise to pay closer attention to it.

 Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Jupiter in your signs indicates increase and expansion. How exactly this is translating in your life is relative, but it is destined to occur now. Something is pushing you to focus and perhaps harder than you have for some time. Fortunately, you are able to comply but be careful that it does not turn into narrow thinking and unnecessary stubbornness. Cooperation is extra important now.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Contending with what may be described as a mixed blessing continues. This is an expansive time and you feel inspired to take pioneering leads to explore new territory. On the other hand, you may feel challenged to draw deeply into hidden reserves of faith. Take things one day at a time; avoid drawing conclusions and exercise gratitude for everything that is good and working.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The current planetary line-up indicates the desire and perhaps the need to lay low for a while. Beyond your usual routine and rhythm, avoid participating in extra-curricular activities as doing so might prove especially taxing on your energy reserves. If you must go out, plan to leave early. Take time to rest, dream and recharge.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Exploring new territory both literally and intellectually continues. Dreams and visions of possibility are on your mind. Yet, these also include the sobering realization that risk ventures require discipline and concentration. Obtaining new tools and learning skills implies learning and training and the time is right for this focus.

 Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)

The current continues to accelerate. Although the year is winding down, the pace of things is speeding up. Packing more into your day to achieve higher levels of productivity is likely and important now. At worst, you could feel overwhelmed and intimidated by the demand. Outline your goals and tasks focus on them systematically.

Horoscope for the week: December 1, 2017

Tip of the Week: The 12th month of the year coincides aptly with the 9th Sign, Sagittarius, since 12 represents completion and ending, as well. Astrologically, Pisces is the 12th sign and it is symbolic of the link between the conscious and the subconscious, the manifest and the unmanifest, the embodied and the disembodied soul. December leads us to Winter Solstice and the socially contrived New Year, which begins at the strike of 12 midnight when the 12th month officially ends and the 1st begins.

We live immersed in symbolism that comes in many forms, such as numbers. Astrology and Numerology share a close relationship and serve to reveal a natural order. The seasonal round operates like clockwork and we have since time immemorial and continue to this day to live in the context of it. Traditionally and cross-culturally the seasonal round was regarded as sacred and most religions are founded upon the various peak points in the natural cycle. This is certainly true of Christianity even though these anchor points are usually denied and rejected, haughtily deemed Pagan.

While tradition prevails, it like most things in our modern era has become commercialized and the roots of these traditions are overlooked, dismissed and denied. Looking at the state of the world, the human condition, we see the results of this everywhere. Despite our unprecedented levels of technology and economic flow, the very fabric of society is fragile. Many feel overlooked, dismissed and denied and alienation is prevalent. Despite a complex social order, division prevails over unity. Artificiality is firmly established and is steadily rising as robotics, for example, progressively replaces people.

Yet, the natural rhythms of nature continue and will so and their psychological, spiritual and cultural influences will too, even if concealed beneath superficial layers of plastic, alloy, and circuitry. This is where astrology comes to the fore. It works and that it does is a testimony to the reality that existence is not merely a material matter and with it, I can help you to reclaim your personal power.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)

Are you dreaming, or is it more of a nightmare or something in between? Some situations are more complex than others and this one ranks pretty high. You want to have perspective on both the bigger picture and insight regarding the immediate politics. The bottom line is just that, pay close attention to it and focus to secure an outcome that works financially for you.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)

Circumstances are pushing you to take a plunge, yet again. The good news is that this one includes measurable returns. You are on the verge of a new focus and one that could take some sizable unexpected turns. You are ready and willing to make all the necessary efforts but you may also need help, perhaps professional.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Opportunities to increase your social outreach are available now. Even so, you may not feel as confident as you would like. Circumstances may not be desperate but they are and have been a challenge. Fortunately, you have also been in a sporting mood which is also lingering. A busier time is coming; get ready go hard for a while.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Changes in your usual rhythm are underway. These may even amount to measurable shifts in your overall lifestyle. Whether by inspiration or desperation, investing more time and energy to achieve your goals is featured. Positively, you are on a health kick and are already noticing beneficial results. If not, that is the way to go.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your creative juices are flowing. These include and probably require imaginative input and perhaps a lot of it. The other side of the deal is the big efforts and long hours implied. The pace will accelerate and will include a rather steep learning curve that is probably already evident. There is more to come so get ready to really get to work.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)

Your ambitions have been steadily rising. This may be due to financial interests and/or setbacks. You may be feeling overwhelmed and depressed about it, but you best bet it to persevere. This includes attending to a variety of fronts, a theme that will continue for many months. Be open to pioneering initiatives. Your drive will increase measurably very soon.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22)

Something and perhaps several things are piquing your interests. Financial considerations are part of this plot. It may be that someone needs your help. If so, they are lucky to be catching you at this time as you are feeling generous. Besides, the situation may be calling for your extra input. You are fine with that but you still want to strike a fair deal.

 Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You are in an enthusiastic and expansive mood. Challenges that appeared large before no longer do, or at least less. However, you still have to breach some internal barriers. This includes breaking free of procrastination. It may simply be a matter of inspiration. If you are lacking the fire, seek it in the direction of new interests.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Sun, Mercury, Venus and Saturn all in your sign suggests a rather sudden turn over the past while. It could basically put you in a festive mood. Yet, it also speaks of the spirit in the deep and mysterious atmosphere that graces this time of year. Like fast moving clouds, it will not last. So, whether you are on a high or otherwise, trust the flow.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Saturn is your ruling planet and so it might be expected that you would handle it best. Well, this is the test. It will enter your sign on Solstice’s eve. At worst, it could bring a weight of restriction and depression. The good news is that it will make a clean entry into your sign, no retrogrades and that is a good thing. Still, the plot is thick.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Things are shifting quickly now, everywhere, and pretty much everyone knows it and can feel it. This is how synchronicity works. It is not merely a matter of outer, random circumstances. Of course, everyone is having their own experience, the variable in the equation. For your sign, thus influencing you, there is a sudden push to advance, to increase.

 Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)

You have entered an important time window. It is not simply about the time of year. There is much more going on that the annual round. Big shifts are occurring for everyone, regardless of their circumstances. These could prove to be positive, but you likely have work to do.  A big final push through 2017 is ideal and perhaps necessary.

 

Horoscope for the week: Nov. 24 – Dec. 1, 2017

Tip of the Week: As the world turns and orbits the Sun, we enter Sagittarius time. The 9th Zodiac Sign is appropriately numbered as 9 represents endings and the last month of the natural year begins. Of course, the natural year begins at the exact moment of Winter Solstice here in the Northern Hemisphere.

In the bigger picture, much is afoot in these early years of the dawning of the Age of Aquarius. Sadly, it is not as idealistic souls would have it. Call it a stormy morning. And as though awakening after a big bender, much of humanity is suffering from a hangover. A global crisis is underway. Some may innocently regard it as merely consequential, while others are much more suspicious asserting that dark intention is at play. Is it a simple matter of circumstance, synchronicity, human will, a combination of all three…? Yes, I would assert it is always all three. We can also be sure that there will always be conflicting interpretations producing the never-ending dramas on our world stage.

The facts remain that year 1 of this new round of 9 has begun on a challenging note. Instability and survival have become the new norm despite all our technical genius and ingenuity. Invariably larger themes encompass our personal lives. Astrology is a veritable archetypal x-ray machine and with it, I can see deeply into the patterns of your destiny to help you find your place in this dramatic turn of the ages.

 

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)

You are in a unique position to peer deeply into the bigger picture and you want to and even feel compelled. Yet, as would be the case, there is a price for such potent thrills. You are challenged to hold your own but may be contending with players who ambitiously hold to their own designs and desires. Is it a crap shoot, a shit show or more like dark bitter chocolate?

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)

Some situations call for more poise, patience, and power. Call it a game and you are destined to work hard to play as well as you can. But the stakes are big, perhaps really big and you are not in the mood to simply be nice. But you would like to or, at least, are wise to focus on what is truly fair. Of course, fair is relative so weigh the situation and negotiate a deal.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

A new round of talks has begun. Are you feeling cornered or committed, or both? Circumstances are pushing you to give a lot and without the guarantee of equal return. You may feel the need for new tools, equipment or the leverage that valuable information can provide. Either way, you have to make your play but there is no quick and easy solution.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You are in the mood to make a few investments. These may be monetary but could equally amount to the energy and time required to take new initiatives. You are willing to dig in deeply, even if it simply amounts to doing so with your heels. The plot is set for you to make your plays and this momentum already began a few weeks ago.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You have entered a very creative cycle. It begins now and for the next few weeks but will linger longer yet. Fortunately, your energy levels are on the rise. Inspired by beauty, you are in the mood to draft blueprints and make designs. These could come in the form of larger strategy outlines and longer-term plans.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)

A busy time continues. Whether you are compelled by the headlines amidst the rest of your life responsibilities and feeling pushed, moved and inspired, the velocity is increasing steadily. It may be that the cliffs are rising and the banks are narrowing, as well, producing rapids. However you wish to coin the metaphor, your job is to keep up with the ever-faster pace.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22)

Your ambitions are rising. You may want or need to earn more money, but your motivation includes staying busy, productive and interested. Hopefully, your focus includes a cultivation of your talents. This is important. Accessing the resources of others are featured, for various jobs, but it is your own resourcefulness that is important to consider.

 Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Accessing the courage to take the pioneering initiatives you yearn and perhaps feel the need and pressure to take, is an important central theme now. You are in an experimental mood and are ready to try new things and take new approaches. This will lead you to an important learning curve. For now, do the groundwork to get the answers and insights you need to proceed.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

As though a candle has been lit in a cool, damp and dark room, you can see and are warmed by the light. Inspired, you want more and, if necessary, the knowledge how to do it yourself. Skills and resources are required. These will likely lead to making key investments. Your career and public life figure prominently in your aspiration.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

There is just 1-month left in a long 3-year cycle that has likely proven transformational. Such processes can prove difficult especially when we resist and try too hard to control outer circumstances and people. Positively, you have cleared the way somehow and you feel lighter. Now it is time to follow through to tie-up any loose ends.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Concentrating your focus so you can increase your options is an important theme these days. While it has been brewing for some time, it was especially ignited in the past few weeks. Now you are on a march to consolidate your plans. Many social opportunities are featured which includes meeting new people and this feature of the plot is accelerating.

 Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)

A new vision for your future is dawning. Circumstances are and have been pushing you to be more realistic. You have entered an important window that requires concentration and follow-through to get various projects done. This window will last about 1-month. This focus is probably more about projects already started than initiating new ones.

 

Horoscope for the Year – 2018

Overview: 

Over the course of 2018, significant astrological cycles will unfold and new ones will begin that will activate measurable changes for us all. Jupiter in powerful Scorpio as of October 2017 and Saturn in its own powerful sign of Capricorn as of late December 2017 will lead the charge. They will introduce new leaders on the world stage stimulating new social policies and important economic trends.

In mid-April, the maverick planet Chiron will enter bold and pioneering Aries inspiring us all to be more pro-active regarding authentic self-actualization. Then, in mid-May, mover and shaker Uranus will make its debut in Taurus to begin a 7-year cycle plowing ahead with the finesse of a bulldozer. Finally, late in the year in early November, shortly prior to Jupiter’s entry into visionary, philosophical and adventurous Sagittarius, its own sign, the Moon’s Nodes will leave the Leo/Aquarius sign axis and enter into that of Cancer and Capricorn, which are Cardinal signs and which symbolize fresh starts and bold new initiatives.

When added, the numbers in 2018 = 11 the meaning of which includes clearing the old to make way for the new. 2017 was a Universal 1-Year marking the start of a new 9-year cycle and was like a rocket launching. 2018 will be as when it must break through the atmosphere, so get ready the many dramatic trends initiated in 2017 will likely escalate.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)

You have arrived at a very important juncture symbolic of major new beginnings. In some respects it will feel like a culmination, having reached the peak, perhaps arduously. This feat of achievement comes with its own set of sobering responsibilities. Amidst the possible elation, circumstances are pushing you to be focused and disciplined. Positively, you feel the power, your ambitions are running high, and you feel confident to push for the next level. Yet, you may be unclear about your direction and your priorities. Before 2018 ends, your focus will turn away from public accolade to what makes you feel happy, comfortable and secure, but which could include adventure.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)

2017 represented the completion of a long and powerful metamorphosis of some kind. Already you have begun to break through and feel inspired to expand your horizons. This will involve a variety of interests and intellectual pursuits. By summer you will be on a dynamic and revolutionary roll, especially if you have cleared accumulated toxins and emotional baggage. If you are in doubt of this, you are wise to clear them now before Chiron enters Aries in April. You could get serious about a new course of study and you will likely feel disciplined enough to follow through successfully. If you have already learned and earned your credentials, you will push to turn them into professional achievement.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Looking back, 2017 was probably quite pleasant, upbeat and adventurous for you. You learned the importance of accepting things as they are. Now the tide is changing, is going out again. This began in October. Circumstances are already pushing you to be more faithful and forgiving and this trend will continue in 2018. You will also enter a new phase of change destined to transform you deeply. The result of this process could be you feeling better than ever, more refined, lighter, and freer. Prior notions and orientations to security, both material and emotional, will be replaced by new interpretations. These trends will continue beyond 2018 but they have already begun.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

New commitments, alliances, and allegiances will emerge over the course of 2018. This will likely prove true especially closer to the end of the year but the momentum will build throughout. You will be the one to take the initiative to initiate new leads. Financial interests and concerns are prime motivations. Making key investments is also featured and these may have already begun. With these assertions comes a new level of responsibility and commitment. At worst, the choices you make could leave you wondering who you are and what constitutes your sense of purpose, so keep it in mind as you maneuver to advance your position.

 Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

In 2017 both inspirations and perhaps some measure of necessity pushed you to take pioneering leads to enter new territory. This destiny theme will continue throughout 2018. Positively, your confidence levels have begun to rise. Yet, you are also now realizing that your workload has perhaps increased as well. This includes a rather steep learning curve that also requires both investment and the paying of dues, financial or otherwise. By mid-spring, you will experience the next wave of changes which will occur in your public and professional life and there are good indications that these will prove financially advantageous. Adventure and something of a vision quest are also featured.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)

Some promising cycles already underway and some to begin in 2018 will contribute to circumstances flowing in your favor. The real boon may well prove to be financial. If you have fallen behind or are in debt, this could be the year when you catch-up and perhaps even advance your position. It may take the better part of the year, however, so start early, set your intentions and outline a plan of action that covers each month, for example. In the shorter term, you are and have been in a cycle that is destined to dissolve old attitudes, self-concepts, and approaches and so on… that have served their time. Let go of reactions to control and protect what was. Cooperate with the process.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22)

You have arrived at an important juncture. It will include facing your fears to lay claim to latent talents and hidden gifts of self-expression. This process will challenge you to become vulnerable. Honesty is the best policy in this regard. Why hide the fact that you have insecurities? When they are acknowledged and brought out into the light of conscious awareness their power is diminished and then, by way of deliberate action, you can vanquish them altogether. This process may take many months, so the sooner you begin the better. The silver lining is that you will receive inspirations to design your course and be inventive.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Jupiter in your sign is already activating leaps of faith. Outer circumstances beyond your control are likely playing a big role. You will likely begin new courses of study which may take several years to complete. Before summer begins, major changes on relationship fronts will become apparent. These will have a direct effect on your core beliefs and the philosophies that you live by for the sake of feeling secure. The state and quality of your health and that of your lifestyle, in general, will also come up for review by mid-spring. It may prove wise to take action now and get a check-up, at least, to contribute to offsetting any unnecessary negative accumulations. Affirm: healthy is powerful and beautiful!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

In 2018 you will be challenged to get more disciplined. This may include paying your dues somehow, such as tuition or membership fees… Changes in your usual rhythm and daily routine will also become increasingly apparent. You will yearn for stability and predictability. Positively, there are indications that you could achieve higher levels of health and fitness, so consider beginning now to associate pleasure to what will contribute to it, and pain to what will not. Measurable changes will occur late in the year linked to risk and increase, yet will require you to leave worn-out traditions and attitudes behind.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

2018 stands to be a power year for you. Many factors are lining up to be in your favor. These will unfold progressively over the course of the year involving pivotal new beginnings on family and relationship fronts. Some of these positive factors have already begun, but may not be interpreted that way. Saturn entering your own sign can prove heavy and depressing. Knowing your direction will prove extra important; otherwise, you could embark on a wayward path, perhaps linked to poor choices in friendships. So, consider making deliberate efforts to associate with leaders, movers, and shakers who positively challenge you to new levels of achievement.

 Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Many changes are in store for you in 2018. These will amount to important turning points and new beginnings. This will be true in terms of your lifestyle and even where you live. Expect to make major moves, both literal and figurative, this spring. Already, changes in your public and professional life are underway. These may seem like a mixed blessing at times. Plan to persevere faithfully into a relative unknown despite uncertainties. However, backup support is also indicated. As the year progresses, circumstances will push you to be more grounded and stable amidst a steady flow of measurable changes.

 Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)

The cycles appear to be turning your way in 2018. Already you may notice that you are more confident regardless of what is happening in your life. Starting even before the year is out, returns for prior efforts will begin rolling in and these will continue throughout 2018. Circumstances have directed you to be more sober and realistic regarding what is required of you to achieve your goals. Changes in your attitude, priorities, and approaches will become increasingly evident by mid-spring and could include a healing process. Financial responsibilities could figure prominently. As the year progresses, your confidence levels should increase inspiring new creative interests.
