October 19th – 26th
It’s time to reexamine your choices and realign yourself with a greater truth. You are growing, even if you’re not aware of the small shifts in your perspective. Those small changes add up and from one moment to the next you’re in a new place and unless you pause or reflect you may remain unaware. With Venus retrograde, it’s time to stop and project yourself into the future. It’s time to tweak your dreams. The clearer you are on what you want, the easier it is to achieve it. This week begins with the Sun and Venus in opposition to Uranus. You are going to see yourself differently and that’s a good thing. Someone close to you may reflect that change, and it will help empower that piece of yourself you’ve ignored. With Venus, Mercury and Jupiter in Scorpio and in trine to Neptune work and money will do well. Neptune lifts you out of the mundane and Scorpio keeps you in the problem, so you’ll have the full scope of what needs to be seen. When you can rise above whatever it is that’s happening, you are able to see the best choice available for you to move forward. The trine from Saturn to Uranus is still happening and it’s helping you update your life – people and things have to be useful or they hold you back. Mars square Mercury and Venus keep the intensity and frustration level high. Don’t hold it in. Scream in the shower, run a mile, or write it out in your journal, but let it go; it’s there to make you aware of how you feel. Acknowledge the message and move on.
Aries (March 21st – April 20th)
Every Aries struggles with a split identity; they’re both independent and co-dependent. You want to be on your own tackling your challenges with courage and the other side of you desires to be nurtured, spoiled and taken care of. It’s okay to indulge in both, but lean toward independence, for it is only when we are in charge of our life that we learn who we are and what we have to offer. With the sun and Venus in the 8th house and opposite Uranus, you are making a major life change. Your transition may be around how you earn a living or perhaps how you represent yourself to the world. Whatever it is, don’t fight it, take charge. Mars square Mercury may give you the push to say things you shouldn’t. You have trouble censuring what comes out of your mouth under normal circumstances, so be forewarned, this moment requires patience and discipline. Jupiter trine Neptune is inspiring. You’ve had creative ideas or new goals floating around your brain for some time. They’re trying to get you to turn them into something real. Relationships are also experiencing change – it’s up to you to adjust. If you’re single, life is off center for the moment, and it may be better to get yourself back on tract before you bring someone else into the picture.
Taurus (April 21st – May 20th)
Taureans love power, but they don’t always choose it – power requires responsibility and freedom is what they want. Unlike your opposing sign, Scorpio, you prefer to attract what you desire and you do so through charm and your ability to manipulate the truth. The clearer your values, the stronger your character and the easier it is to gain the respect you desire. With Uranus in your sign, what used to work is suddenly obsolete. And that’s a good thing. Old patterns need to be adjusted to fit your new vision and self. With Neptune in trine to Mercury and Venus, you can sweet talk your way forward, but do you really want to do that again. Wouldn’t it be better to reveal your true intention and your truth? When you can do this without fear of rejection you will experience real power. With Saturn and Pluto both in Capricorn, your goals are changing and a new direction is either in your heart or on the calendar. The trine from Uranus to Saturn will bring the unexpected to the table – and it may work in your favor. The Universe will reward a good intention if you are committed to the result and willing to show up without a guarantee. You know it’s time for change; it’s time to grow up no matter how old you are and how much you’ve managed to get away with. Relationships are good. Jupiter is still in Scorpio and in trine to Neptune; there’s magic in relationships. If you’re single, the door is open to meet a soul mate, someone who gets you on a spiritual level.
Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)
Geminis are social beings, but lately the desires of others are both frustrating and an imposition. It’s difficult to stay on your path and take care of your personal needs, unless you’re good at saying no. No is the magic word of the universe because it creates boundaries that keep others from occupying your space. With Pisces ruling your 10th house of career, and Neptune in trine to Venus and Mercury, the magic of the universe wants to help you out, but you need to be able to receive. Sounds simple, well it’s not. The closer you are to your true purpose the harder it will be to ignore it for others. Saturn trine Uranus are famous for creating the unexpected; if you are ready to change, the surprise will work in your favor. You’re not in control, even if you feel you are. So once again it’s all about faith. Jupiter in Scorpio is enhancing your 6th house of work. You will definitely be busy, but that’s seldom your issue. The key is to be busy on what serves and enhances your life, not with the worries and needs of others. Relationships are ruled by Sagittarius. Jupiter has been well-aspected for some time, so although you may have had to cope with problems, you do have support when you can ask for it. If you’re single, it could be a good time to meet someone special. You have a lot to offer, so remember to believe in yourself and others will too.
Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)
Cancers are drawn to powerful emotions, sometimes they’re so strong they find themselves off their path and disconnected from themselves. Emotions are never meant to lead the troops, they’re there to give a sense of connection and turn experiences and things into something pulsating with life. When you can move from one emotion to another, from your personal feelings to someone else’s, you will be a part of the creative process. Emotions are not easy to manage, however, it’s up to you to keep them focused and under control. This week, the Moon, conjunct Neptune lifts up your spirit and makes you feel anything is possible. Together they trine the Sun, Venus and Mercury, inspiring your creativity and giving you confidence. This is how emotions should work. Whatever your role in life, your emotional power is an asset as long as it’s not in control. Emotions shape your identity – they’re what make you unique. So stop trying to fit in and be who you are. Venus is retrograde and in opposition to Uranus, relationships are under siege until November 16th. Don’t ignore what you see, changes need to be made. You’re seeing everyone through new eyes. If you’re single, you want someone independent, someone who doesn’t need you to save them. If you do, you’ll never break the co-dependent part of your nature.
Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)
With the Sun in the air sign Libra, ideas begin to inspire the soul. Fire and air work well together and so this should be a good week for the creative part of your spirit. New ideas are welcomed, with Uranus at the top of your chart, you’ve been thinking of change and new goals. You won’t have to look far to be inspired, just don’t let fear stop you and loosen your grip on your need to be in control. You can’t take a risk without letting go. You like to work and with Pluto and Saturn in your 6th house, that won’t be a problem, you’ll be focused and driven to get things done. Most Leos embrace responsibility and are used to feeling valued through the work they accomplish. That’s great, but your soul also needs validation and attention. Neptune in the 8th house of transformation in trine to Venus, Mercury and Jupiter, puts an emphasis on the home. Either you’ve been redecorating or you’re about to make improvements. There is always a strong desire to make things perfect – pay attention to the stress it causes you, it’s not good for your health. You need the freedom to be you. The only way to get it is to realize that you can be imperfect and still fabulous. Mars in your house of relationships is in square to Venus, Mercury and Jupiter; you feel edgy and frustrated and you’re not going to be silent. If you’re single, now is not the time to get close to someone. There’s a too much conflict in the air.
Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)
With your ruler, Mercury, journeying through the dark waters of Scorpio, you’re delighted. The forbidden side of life is something that fascinates you as you search to understand yourself and feel whole. Communication is emphasized this week, either there is a lot of busy work to do, or you have a project to finish that is weighing you down. Mars in Aquarius in square to Venus, Mercury and Jupiter indicate that whatever you want to accomplish can’t be done without resistance and problems. Don’t allow your frustration to turn into anger. Remove the emotional element to what’s going on and stick to what needs to get done and you’ll be fine. With Uranus opposite the Sun you’ll see things you don’t want to see, but it will help shift you into a stronger position. Truth is your best friend, just use common sense before you impose it on those who are not interested. There is a continuous battle between the truth and what you want the world to be, the sooner you accept reality, the sooner a new dream can be born. Your first dreams were an escape, in Virgo the dream gets adjusted so that you can be empowered. Relationships are good with Neptune strong and supportive, you get the best from your partner at the moment. If you’re single, it’s a wonderful time to meet others of like minds. So, keep the door open.
Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)
Libra is about balance. However, balance is not a set thing, it’s constantly changing and evolving – and so you must know yourself, what you want and remain flexible. This is the last week of Libra hosting the Sun and the message now is very clear: let go and don’t try and control the outcome. Hopefully you’ve done the work; now you need faith that whatever happens is meant to be. Experience will always teach you that no matter how much control you believe you have, there is always a surprise or as some call it “The hand of God” that contributes to the results. With Uranus in opposition to the Sun, whatever you’ve had in your datebook will not go as planned. I didn’t say it wouldn’t work; I’m implying there is a necessity to adapt to the changes that are surely coming your way. With Pluto and Saturn in your 4th house of the home, you have a strong need to feel protected which may limit your social life unnecessarily. Don’t let fear rule. Finances are a focus, there’s a chance that you’re worried about your income or how much you’re spending. Identify the problem and fix it. Neptune in the 6th house, brings out the perfectionist and it can slow you down. Relationships are still ruled by frustration. Don’t get discouraged, this too will pass. If you’re single, it’s still not a great time to either meet or consolidate a relationship. Have patience and fun.
Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)
Scorpio is at a pivotal point in hero’s journey. To reach the top of the chart, the apex of success, one must learn to let go. You need a light load to get ahead. You can’t be bogged down by unrealistic sentiments, people who take and don’t give, furniture you don’t use, papers that pile up, books you’ve read or will never read and clothes that have long ago seen their best day. It’s time to lighten your load. Jupiter has been expanding your consciousness, your position in life and your ability to create what you want. Be aware of what’s happening around you and open yourself up to change. Mars is still causing frustration and making it difficult to move forward without opposition. Remember, it’s the struggle that makes you strong and clarifies what works and what doesn’t. Venus is retrograde in your sign and it rules relationships and your 12th house of spirituality. This affects your soul, your heart and what you need and desire within yourself. With the Sun in your 12th house, don’t be surprised if you need to be alone. Perhaps you’re drawn to a quiet walk in the woods. There’s a yearning to be with yourself without distractions. Relationships are still fraught with change and excitement. Something new is coming into both of your lives. If you’re single, it’s still a time of change and if you meet someone who helps you embrace that, then it could be perfect – for now.
Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)
Sagittarius rules both wisdom and travel. When you travel you expand the mind, you journey beyond the world you were born into and you see the bigger picture. With three planets in your 12th house of spirituality, this is a contemplative week. It’s time to reach for faith and realize you have less control over what happens than you think. Your power is in your response; does the experience make you a victim or teach you a lesson? That’s really up to you. The attitude you take when something happens to you, either keeps you on a path toward success or spirals you back to the past, so you can repeat the same thing again. What you need is perseverance and a vision of what you want. With the Sun opposite Uranus this week, you’ll feel electrified and driven to try something new. Perhaps your work schedule has changed, or there are new people you will interact with. Whatever it is brings a jolt of freshness to the table. Saturn and Pluto in your house of money and values has pushed you to focus on finances. It’s time to use your power and knowledge to get ahead, not just run in place. Life is easier when you have a strong challenge. It galvanizes your energy and makes you feel alive. Relationships are frustrating this week, there is not enough energy to spread around. However, If you’re single, you may meet someone you’re crazy about, but you’ll need patience, chances are they’re not available.
Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)
As a child you seemed like an adult, smart and more aware than most of your friends. That’s why your nickname is the “the old man (or woman)” of the universe. With both Saturn and Pluto in your sun sign, you hold the power and power needs a vision. Don’t be surprised to learn that what you say influences others. If you have achieved some form of success, then the aspects will only enhance your position. If you’re just starting out, you’ll get attention and help from others. With the Sun in opposition to Uranus, the change that is already in place has escalated. This week may bring a few more surprises — good ones. Uranus is also in trine to Saturn, your ruler, so those new ideas will be well incorporated into what already exists. Neptune is strong in your 3rd house, your ability to communicate is enhanced and so is your creativity. New ideas are not a struggle, they just come to you. Mars is still causing frustration, but most of it has to do with your home and family. Home should be a place of safety, but it could be under renovation or there’s a disturbance you can’t control. Perhaps the people you share your personal space with are going through difficulties. In spite of that, friends are helpful and relationships are basically good. Your problems in life have more to do with where you’re coming from and how much patience you have. If you’re single, there’s nothing stopping you. If you want more than you’re getting, ask for it.
Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)
Born with a big heart, you either use it too much or it’s shut down. The challenge for both options is balance, who do I share my love with and who do I ignore. Be aware of the emotional vampires in the world — they’re looking for you. Mars has been in your sign for a few months, this doesn’t happen often. So, you’ve been over-energized and frustrated, probably because everyone is interfering with your goals. It’s time to be selfish. Whatever you do, make space in your life for the unexpected — things are going to happen and quickly. Once the first domino is set into motion, the others begin to fall and want your attention. If you’ve prepared properly then all will go well. Your career is about to take off or at least present you with new possibilities. Saturn and Pluto in your 12th house of spirituality is a reminder that you’re not really in control. Control comes from your response to life’s challenges, not in deciding what they are. So, take the high road, see everything that happens as a chance to learn and grow. When you accept the ups and downs, you remain in a win win scenario. Neptune in your house of finance will bring you opportunities to increase your income. The Sun opposite Uranus, your ruler, will remind you that your path is separate from anyone else’s. Relationships need to be self-sufficient. If you’re single, you’ll be looking for an independent partner, someone who doesn’t need their hand held when something goes wrong.
Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)
Pisces needs a purpose and a dream. The universe never judges your passion, good or bad, it accepts your choice and helps you bring it to fruition. However, every action has a consequence, goodness takes you higher, evil deeds expose you to danger. With three planets in the water sign of Scorpio, you will receive support from your 9th house – your ideals. Ideals are what lift you up and remind you that you’re not alone. Friends are important and this week, they will reach out and give you a helping hand. You are changing your life, and sentimentality must go – it only holds you back. With Mars in your 12h house, the anger and aggression you’ve been feeling should begin to fade. Take a run down a country lane or work out in a gym, exercise is a healthy way to rid yourself of negative energy. The opposition to Uranus from the Sun, means your work schedule has altered, at least for now. There have been sudden changes on how you go about your day, and that’s a good thing. The more you are challenged, the stronger you get. Relationships are still causing frustration and anger. Perhaps it has nothing to do with you, but you feel the energy and its disturbing. If you’re single, don’t chase the one person who doesn’t want you, or only wants a small piece of what you have to offer, you deserve a complete package, and a bonus.
