Week of Wednesday the 17th of September -Tuesday the 23rd of September

 Read your rising sign if you know it; or any other sign, as each of us has Aries, Taurus etc. someplace in our charts governing some aspect of our lives.

ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 20) – The Moon, at its last quarter, is shrinking in light; your focus begins to switch from what has been to what will be. Confusion can come in over the weekend as Mars squares Neptune. If you are working in film, on a very creative image rich work, or if you are working on elevating suffering, your work will go well. If none of the above you can feel as if you are in a fog. Monday night a sea change occurs as the Sun enters Libra and planet Pluto stations. You will begin to get noticed.

TAURUS (Apr 20-May 21) – Expect to be slightly disturbed as the week begins, liking stability instead of upset. But there is a bee in your bonnet when it comes to someone “going postal” on you. Someone just being who they are doesn’t mean they will not stand by you in the end. Better wait until Sunday to decide anything. 

GEMINI (May 21-Jun 21) –Mercury has now entered its “shadow period” that is the time on either side of the actual 3 week retrograde period where ideas get reviewed. The illumination, brainstorm or new creative idea you had last week has staying power and will continue to haunt you these next few weeks. It might concern a new way of relating to your children-wanting to treat them more as an equal or a new artistic endeavor. Your creative side benefits from having someone to talk to about it. 

CANCER (Jun 21-Jul 20) – The week begins with you feeling provoked- with feelings of powerlessness and wanting to break free. There might be a personal need to break some bad habits which would be the good side. The Moon is in your sign since 11:24 AM yesterday always increasing and sensitizing your emotional intelligence. When it changes into Leo late Thursday night the mood will shift. Do not be discouraged or depressed Saturday afternoon. We are in the waning Moon/Sun cycle just before the New Moon. Assimilate and integrate what has gone on before, rather than initiate would be your m.o.

LEO (Jul 20-Aug 21) – Friday sees the Moon in your sign and conjunct the planet of luck, success, faith and optimism in the middle of the night. Try to remember your dreams Friday night. You might be called to ratchet up your ever generous nature. The Sun, your ruler, moves into Libra 10:30 PM Monday the 22nd as we hit the Autumnal Equinox; days and nights are of equal length. Forget the last month’s efforts to increase your resources. Now you need to focus on building more community around you, including siblings, or taking on a new study course, or renewed focus on expressing your ideas.

VIRGO (Aug 21-Sept 22) – After the Full Moon in your sign has brought to light either the reality of continuing with more needless suffering, or you have decided to take the higher path and go for healing an awkward situation. These days you are either still involved in a caretaking situation of one in great need, or with a musician, artist or healer-one who can transcend the misery all around. Mercury is in your second house of resources and earned income and will be for the month ahead. The Sun joins Mercury Monday night at the Autumnal Equinox. Focus on gaining something for yourself, material or otherwise. Join forces.

LIBRA (Sep 22-Oct 20) – Expect some disruption as the week begins when stability in relationship is hard to come by. Better for you Sunday when Venus your ruler meets Saturn, in a nice way. Whatever quirkiness happened earlier in the week, can get smoothed out. The Sun enters your sign Monday night at the Autumnal Equinox. Come out of the closet a bit. Mercury and the North Node in your sign makes you very level headed these days, much the conciliator and diplomat.  

SCORPIO (Oct 20-Nov 21) – Saturn is still in your sign until Christmas, but Mars has moved out, thank goodness. You have energy again for material gain. You might not be seeing a relationship or connection that will help you move forward. You will have time in the next month to see and find someone in places that you do not normally go to or find yourself in. Why are relationships so hard?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 21-Dec 21) – Mars in your sign now, is swiftly moving to form a triangle in the sky with the abundant Jupiter in ego satisfying Leo and Uranus the quickener and enlightener in Aries.  This grand trine in fire will light up your love life, your educational life and/or your travel plans. Feel the pressure and excitement build as the week and month progresses.

CAPRICORN (Dec 21-Jan 20) – Saturn is picking up speed now so you should be feeling that the affairs in your life are doing likewise. Saturn is about your outer reality, what it looks like; at the same time it is also about your inner character. Character is destiny. Saturn rules the bones in your body, your teeth and skeletal structure. It is what we learn to stand up on as a toddler and identify with as we age and have a consistent yoga practice. Saturn defines and helps you take responsibility for who you are. Define your goals, hopes and wishes.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 19) – Saturn is in your 10th house of career and reputation, helping you define and realize what that looks like. If things have gone as far as they can face the music and look for another road.  This week we are into the waning portion of the Moon cycle. Integrate what has gone on before and recognize what you want to keep and bring forward and what or who you have outgrown. 

PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 21) – Since the Full Moon on the 8th you must have been experiencing a whole range of feelings from confusion, loneliness and despair to a renewed sense of the ultimate power and resourcefulness of the source of all creativity and life. Your job as the wisest of all the signs is to live from that place where all is possible; sure of the truth that the universe rearranges itself to accommodate your picture of reality. The readjustments you have to make this week in your daily habits will pay off.

Week of Wednesday the 10th of September -Tuesday the 16th of September

Read your rising sign if you know it; or any other sign, as each of us has Aries, Taurus etc. someplace in our charts governing some aspect of our lives.

ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 21) – Coming off the Full Moon, which always brings some sense of relief, you have the Moon in your sign until tomorrow, Thursday night. Use the time to take the initiative as you are good at starting things. Mars your ruler changes signs and moves into Sagittarius Saturday around 6:00 PM. Your focus will shift; aim high and go for it. The money troubles should be over.

TAURUS (Apr 21-May 20) – Venus your ruler has moved opposite the planet of love and dreaminess Neptune today. Your sense of things can be cloudy or you are feeling in love with love? This can be inspiring though and sensitize you too beauty and its effect in your body. The Moon is in your sign starting Thursday night through pre dawn Sunday. What do you want and need?  The love gods are with you Sunday.

GEMINI (May 20-Jun 21) – Coming off the Full Moon this week, Mercury is busy meeting Pluto last night, Jupiter today, and Uranus Saturday. You are supposed to be thinking about having fun with or without the children, but you might have to do some mental gymnastics; going from some level of mistrust and feelings that someone is keeping a secret, to being able to communicate about it, to having a sudden illumination over the weekend. You will come back to this perspective again.

CANCER (Jun 21-Jul 21) – As the week begins we are coming off the Full Moon (which must make all Cancers exhausted), and you might be feeling that your independence no longer serves you. Perhaps you are beginning to understand that your growth now comes from entering into a partnership, or at least the realization is dawning of the need to have someone to talk to. This might mean living with someone else for the first time, just changing housemates so the social aspect improves, or even going back home for a spell. 

LEO (Jul 21-Aug 20) – Leos are made for the sunshine. The Sun has peaked in the sky; the Full Moon has peaked and we are in the winding down part of the yearly cycle. But with Jupiter in your sign now expansion, luck and optimism are forthcoming for you. Expect some stability, confidence and a clear sense of purpose Thursday, tomorrow, and for a few days after.

VIRGO (Aug 20-Sep 21) – The Full Harvest Moon was Monday night and the after effects continue for a few days as this week begins. If you got worried last night or suspicious keep positive thoughts. The way things seem is not always the way things are. Do not be too quick to act on Thursday, or get upset by someone acting erratically Saturday or be tempted to say something outrageous. After the weekend find an elder to talk to about it. With Venus in your sign you can be a peacemaker.

LIBRA (Sep 21-Oct 20) – Until the Sun apparently leaves Virgo and moves into your sign on the 22nd, you might feel unnecessarily burdened; that there is just too much criticism around for your comfort. Planet Mercury, which is in your sign already, and will stay here for the next few months (except for 2 weeks), will help you get a grip on anything out of balance in your life. Use the time to compare and contrast; watch any decision you make (not your strong suit). Perhaps what you decide this week will have to be recommitted to around October 25th. 

SCORPIO (Oct 20-Nov 22) – As the week begins and the Full Moon wanes, Mars your ruler will then change signs Saturday evening, moving out of intense Scorpio where it met Saturn, the Lord of Karma and into your 2nd house of earned income and values. The current very intense pressure will subside. Energy can now be focused on more practical matters. Be careful about getting into an argument Thursday evening and Sunday take the activity into a yoga class or outdoor sport.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21) – Planet Mars moves into your sign around 6:00PM Saturday evening. You will be full of get up and go. Impulsive, enthusiastic, exploratory, frank, spontaneous, restless, sporty, argumentative and fitful methods, energies and attitudes will accompany this time through October. Even more so as Jupiter also is in a fire sign. Be careful of getting burned or burning yourself out.

CAPRICORN (Dec 21-Jan 20) – With the Full Moon past you will feel more stable and secure tomorrow, Thursday as the Sun and your ruler Saturn connect. Anything started this week has a good chance of continuing into the future, important to you. No point in working hard if it all is going to dissolve quickly. This might concern a new promotional idea that will bring you residual income, something else important to you.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 19) – Saturn you ruler is at the top of your chart. Perhaps you feel at the end of a road, that you have achieved all that you can in your current role and that there is no place else to go. If you have any institutional memory left you might look back 29-30 years ago to the fall of 1984, when you were here before. This is one of the planetary cycles of life-or the wheel of fortune, going up and coming down which happens to all of us.

PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 21) – After the Full Moon has passed and all the hurts and feelings of abandonment it brought with it have subsided you can look forward. Mars will move into your 10th house of career and reputation around 6:00 PM on Saturday, stimulating this area of life. If you have a visible career, that is you are seen by the public, then you ought to be careful these next 6 weeks that you do not upset the apple cart too much. Or if you cannot help it, take it on faith that it was necessary and right. Principles, a moral code to live by, regardless of financial consequences, is sorely lacking in today’s world.

Week of Wednesday the 3rd of September -Tuesday the 9th of September

Read your rising sign if you know it; or any other sign, as each of us has Aries, Taurus etc. someplace in our charts governing some aspect of our lives.

ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 20) – The first quarter moon was yesterday so you ought to be well on your way in your new job, health regime or care giving role; hopefully it has a holistic approach (integration of body, mind and spirit). The Full Moon is Monday night when affairs of the month come to a head. You will know then if what you started last week at the New Moon is going to last.

TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20) – You are in between the New Moon (Aug 25th)-new beginnings and the Full Moon Monday night, when the beginnings culminate. The Moon is waxing getting bigger, swelling and so will you.  Your ruler Venus moves into Virgo Friday at noon, where details become important. It would be a good time to take up a craft and teach it to your child.

GEMINI (May 20-Jun 21) – Your ruler Mercury just entered Libra which has you thinking about relationships especially with your children or boyfriends. You are between the New Moon from the 25th and the Full Moon Monday night, so matters are swelling, just like the Moon. Full Moons bring underlying issues out to be exposed and dealt with. Your home life or how you feel about yourself and your career sector or reputation will be vying for dominance. If you feel slighted, misunderstood or wounded then just know that the situation is not healthy enough for you on all levels and you must take a broader viewpoint.

CANCER (Jun 21-Jul 20) – Watch your determination and feelings combine on Thursday noontime to really help you get focused on what you want to accomplish. You will still be serious this weekend until the Moon moves into Pisces Sunday evening, getting ready to come to Full opposite the Sun in Virgo on Monday evening. Full Moons make us aware of something we had not seen before. This time it might be rather painful. Change your perspective to see what the right thing to do for everyone involved is.

LEO (Jul 20-Aug 21) - As the week begins your ruler the Sun meets Jupiter the optimist and powerhouse Pluto. You feel mightily empowered, ready to accomplish anything. The Full Harvest Moon Monday night has you at logger horns, wanting to express your innovative and creative side but also having  unfounded financial or self esteem anxieties. Keep being the optimist-we need your sunny side.

VIRGO (Aug 21-Sept 21) – This week bridges the New and Full Moons. The New Moon in Virgo on the 25th began a new personal cycle for you where the focus is on your appearance and identity. The Full Moon Monday night brings someone else into the picture-maybe your new persona threatened the status quo with your partner and he/she is hurt. Venus moves into Virgo at noon on Friday. Your diplomatic skills, not your critical skills will come into play and you will be able to handle what comes up at the Full Moon.

LIBRA (Sep 21-Oct 20) – As we move from the New Moon into the Full Moon Monday night, you will feel a shift. Mercury just entered Libra yesterday and Venus, your ruler moves into Virgo on Friday noon. Thinking about relationships with more emphasis on your diplomatic skills, would be Mercury and more attention to details would be Venus. Spend time alone this week, take that old knitting project out of the closet and finish it. The Full Moon might bring an unresolved health issue to the surface to be dealt with.

SCORPIO (Oct 20-Nov 21) – You are the long suffering sign these days for sure. Sunday brings you ruler Mars into contact with Pluto, just before the Full Moon on Monday evening. Whatever is still residing deep inside (after all you have been through already), whether it be a physical, mental or emotional blockage can be rooted out easily under this aspect. There is a time for everything the Bible says. Freedom from the past that binds us and keeps us from moving forward has to be dug out and released.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 21-Dec 21) – Optimism begins the week, as the Moon is in your sign.  Watch Friday where you might want to exceed safe boundaries; make adjustments. Seriousness marks the weekend until Sunday evening, when the Moon moves into Pisces before the Full Moon Monday evening. Chiron the wounded healer is involved with this Full Moon so it will be evident what has yet to be healed. No pain no gain.

CAPRICORN (Dec 21-Jan 20) –Saturn your ruler has actually moved into a new degree and will pick up speed this month, moving 2 degrees. In October it will be 4 degrees. As Saturn moves ahead so does the goat as he climbs up the mountain. This week has the Moon in your sign from this evening until Friday evening, so focus is called for. The Full Moon Monday evening will alert you to what dysfunctional thinking patterns you still have or you see around you in others.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 20) – All the fixed signs are having difficulty these days with Mars, Saturn and Jupiter in conflict to your Sun. Your frustrations about your career are in contrast to how good it seems to be with your partner. To offset any confusing financial issues that may come up at the Full Moon Monday evening, combine resources with someone else. You are born to belong to a group, not to go it alone.

PISCES (Feb 20-Mar 21) – This week bridges the New Moon with the Full Moon. As the Moon gets bigger your vision does as well, encompassing more, until things explode at the Full Moon Monday evening. Loving your partner also means loving yourself-not in an egotistical way, but by becoming whole. It is said that one cannot truly love another unless he/she loves him/her self.

Week of Wednesday the 27th of August -Tuesday the 2nd of September

 Read your rising sign if you know it; or any other sign, as each of us has Aries, Taurus etc. someplace in our charts governing some aspect of our lives.

ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 20) – The stickiness of the Mars Saturn conjunction can make you feel like you are driving a car with the brakes on. It is hard to get going and then hard to stop if you do get going. The New Moon on Monday brought a clean-up crew into your house of work, health and service. Turn over a new leaf in your work or health habits, especially in regards codependencies. Expect obstacles to arise in the beginning of the week, if you have started a romance recently.

TAURUS (Apr 20-May 21) – Relationship excitement recently might give way to frustration this week, as roadblocks arise. The way forward will take persistence, be patient. Having just come off that beautiful Venus/Jupiter conjunction though, there should be some residual abundant feelings of love and togetherness that will help you through. The New Moon two days ago begins a month of involvement with children, affairs of the heart or creative endeavors; watch being over critical.

GEMINI (May 21- Jun 21) – Mercury is not as busy this week, thank goodness; but the winged messenger was involved with Chiron at the New Moon two days ago. The words you speak can wound or heal. Watch projecting your own unresolved childhood issues onto another. You might not have a clear sense of where you are going this week or might have to say goodbye to someone, but it is for your own sense of wholeness.  You are in a better position than it seems.

CANCER (Jun 21-Aug 20) – As the week begins you may feel some pressure to spend more money on a child or romantic partner than you really want. There was a New Moon on Monday which begins renewed energy for local affairs in your neighborhood or with your close relatives. You might be contemplating a trip, or a new course of study but the details are not jelling.  Wait until after the weekend.

LEO (Aug 20-Sep 21) – The warm, romantic, social or celebratory feelings can carry over as this week begins with the New Moon in your money, earned income, value and resources area of life. Some attention and thought should be made in this area. Be careful of dubious claims in financial matters. Investments might not be what they seem to be. 

VIRGO (Sep 21-Oct 20) – A personal new beginning is in the cards for you this week. Rather than focusing on anyone else you should be focusing on your interests and what you want out of life. You are not meant to understand your partner; they do not even understand themselves right now. Be careful with your words and notice the effect they have. 

LIBRA (Sep 21-Oct 20) – Venus, your ruler is bombarded by both Mars and Saturn this week, identifying a time when love comes at a cost. If you are sure it is the real thing then by all means go ahead; but they might just be too unpredictable for you. It is time for a retreat into your private world for some R&R and to think things through.
SCORPIO (Oct 20-Nov 21) – There is a debate going on inside you this week; either resentment about an increased work load, drudgery and/or responsibility or an increase in passion and focus firing up your ambition for the long haul fulfillment of your goals. Friends can help you steer your boat in the right direction. Empty nest syndrome anyone?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 21-Dec 21) – Are you longing for clarity? Maybe the way forward is to just expand your philosophy of life to include the reality of the “grey”, neither the black nor the white and the “imperfection” of the “perfection” it all.  Your career takes center stage this week but doubts remain. Home life is also feeling a bit unsecure. Your strength is in delving into your unconscious motivation. Meditation and yoga will help.

CAPRICORN (Dec 21-Jan 20) – Mars and Venus the planets of love and desire ran into Saturn this week and maybe you had to end things with a friend. It is either the end or the beginning of a beautiful friendship. If it began in April 2013 then you are at a decision point. Saturn wants a commitment, but the details are fuzzy. Sometimes you just have to wait; plan a trip with like minded spiritual people for a conference in the mean time.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 20) – Hopefully the beautiful conjunction of Venus and Jupiter in the house of the public and your partners last week has brought you into the limelight. You might have to make a decision between a relationship/partner and your career this week; or maybe you are thinking of bringing someone into your company. Just be careful about financial arrangements until after the weekend. Parental responsibilities over the weekend could weigh you down

PISCES (Feb 20-Mar 21) – “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” Soren Kierkegaard. Pisces, the sign of the two fishes each moving in opposite directions understand and live this quote inherently. Pleasant and jovial conditions at work last week have lead to a New Moon in your public/partnership sector. You are a mystery to yourself just now. Perhaps you will attract someone this week who shares your vision.

Week of Wednesday the 20th of August -Tuesday the 26th of August

Read your rising sign if you know it; or any other sign, as each of us has Aries, Taurus etc. someplace in our charts governing some aspect of our lives.

ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 20) – We are in the last quarter of the Sun and Moon cycle this week when affairs take a more relaxed mood, waiting for the New Moon on Monday, which begins a new cycle.  Both the Moon and Sun change signs on Friday in preparation for the new beginning next week, which also has a stimulating and unpredictable Mars Uranus aspect, so be careful of taking any reckless or restless action. Wait.

TAURUS (Apr 20-May 21) – As the week begins and your ruler connects with Pluto you may feel you are making more adjustments in relationships or financial matters than you should be making. Your mood will change Friday into the weekend as the Sun and Moon are changing signs in preparation for the New Moon on Monday. Something/somebody exciting is stirring you up Sunday and Monday. Be open to the new and perhaps unconventional.

GEMINI (May 21-Jun 21) – Mercury your ruler is strong in Virgo and very busy again this week. Firstly connecting with Pluto, then Venus, then Uranus, then Mars, then Saturn as the New Moon unfolds on Monday. Your thoughts and mental adjustments will go from intense psychological analyzing to knowing the right thing to say on Friday, to a nervousness and irritability yet with physical and mental dexterity on Sunday (when playing a sport is favored), to having a good amount of mental focus for paperwork as the work week and the New Moon begin on Monday. 

CANCER (Jun 21-Jul 20) – The Moon is in your as the week begins; you will feel emotionally strong. Share those feelings but be careful of feeling the need to be defensive about having them. Thursday morning you will have the surety to act on those feelings even though later in the morning your mood shifts to one of more restlessness. Patience returns by the afternoon. The Moon stays in Cancer until 4:50 PM on Friday and so ends your monthly 2 ½ days of permission to be yourself with all its accompanying blood, sweat and tears.

LEO (Jul 20- Aug 20) – You are in the last days of the Sun’s passage through your sign. When you wake up Saturday morning you will feel the Sun’s apparent shift into Virgo where for the next month the income, values, possessions and resources area of your life will be the focus. This week is the Balsamic Moon phase of the month when the excitement and potential so evident at the New Moon has passed, the harvest time too has come and gone and now we are into the ending part of the cycle.  Always best not to initiate things during this part of the cycle but wait until after the New Moon on Monday. 

VIRGO (Aug 20-Sep 21) – The Sun apparently (from Earth’s perspective) begins to pass in front of the zodiacal sign Virgo 12:46 AM Saturday morning. The Moon enters Virgo 5:33 AM on Monday. When the two conjoin we have a New Moon, the beginning of a new solar/lunar cycle.  All Virgos will slowly begin to feel empowered, as you reassess and analyze the past month this week, before implementation next week. Your analytical skills are strong and you have invisible help. 

LIBRA (Sep 21-Oct 20) – The North Node is in your sign and has been since the end of February. There is an important relationship, that has come or has yet to come, into your life between last winter and when the North node leaves Libra a year from now. The North Node is actually an astronomical point where the orbits of the Sun (apparent), Earth and the Moon meet, uniquely in Libra every 18 years.  You can use this analogy to understand how important this connection you have made or will make is. The unique timing for Libras now has brought you a person who will lead you forward into the future and from whom you will gain and be nourished by. Recognize him/her or watch for her/him.

SCORPIO (Oct 20-Nov 21) – As we have said before Scorpios have it hard these days. There has been the doldrums then back stepping for months, accompanied by death, emotional crisis, financial difficulties, power struggles, sexual passion, control issues, breakups, psychological breakdowns and breakthroughs. The solution is through learning how to let go and let god.  Monday with the New Moon comes a conjunction of Mars and Saturn; another “mini death” which is followed by a new beginning which will take all the persistence and effort you have inside. You will be working hard.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 21-Dec 21) –You should be really engaged in your new adventure-or maybe the engagement this week is in the anticipation of this new expansion. Your sign needs to find meaning in life or at least to have a philosophy to live by, in order to feel warm, generous and confident, which you should be feeling Saturday morning. Wait to take any action until after the New Moon on Monday. You are at the apex of the year now, where you seemingly are on top of the mountain-in command of your life and very visible.

CAPRICORN (Dec 21-Jan 21) – This week is the end of the monthly cycle, when energy is waning, getting ready for the New Moon on Monday. Accompanying this New Moon is a conjunction of Mars with Saturn in Scorpio. In Medieval days that combination portended a death. In today’s more psychological approach it can come to mean an interruption of work for some reason, or as it is the conjunction of two planets, a new beginning in work with a group of people or on a long held dream which looks to finally manifest. Wait until after the New Moon before committing as you need Mars to have passed Saturn before the energy flips to be productive and expansive instead of meeting a roadblock. Timing is everything.

AQUARIUS (Jan 21-Feb 20) – It is about your partner this week and acknowledging the joy he/she brings. This can be shown by the joy that comes when you spend time together doing the simple things, movies and an ice cream cone, for instance. These simple pleasures with your spouse can balance the frustrations you may be feeling at work this week. It is about integrating the perceptions that the month has been about as it winds down and we move into the New Moon on Monday. If you feel tired no worries energy is waning. 

PISCES (Feb 20-Mar 21) – As the Sun enters Virgo on Friday and your 7th house of partners you will notice that the day to day grind and health issues you have been focusing on this past month will fade. You are about to get noticed for your hard work and are ready to be “seen in public”.  Watch a tendency to feel sorry for yourself.  You are very sensitive these days and can take everything personally when nothing should be taken personally.
