February 15th – February 21st

Valentine’s Day has passed, and the ideals and illusions of love have either been reinforced or you feel disappointed and let down. The aspects have not been good for fantasy land. With Jupiter square Mercury and Neptune in Pisces, the truth of your relationships and your dreams need to be looked at. It’s time to work on fixing what’s wrong or moving on. Either way a new beginning is about to unfold. Your dreams are there to lift you out of reality and show you what’s possible – but you can’t live there. To make dreams come true, they have to be a part of your everyday existence. If you want to be a writer, you have to write. If you want to be a dancer then you’ve got to dance. With Mars finally free of Uranus, you’ll see where you’re going more clearly. On the 15th it entered Taurus, lowering the level of tension we’ve all been coping with somewhere in our lives. With Venus in Capricorn, and the Sun in Aquarius, your social life has been improving. You will spend time with those who know your secrets and perhaps you’ll share a few new ones with your trusted friends. With things on a more peaceful level, it’s easy to see how being forced to face a powerful truth can actually set you free. You’re in the calm after the storm, so enjoy it. Remember, deal with conflict early on, when you postpone taking a stand, it only becomes more difficult and often causes greater destruction or separation.

Aries (March 21st – April 20th)

The fiery planet Mars has finally moved away from Uranus and has entered Taurus — financial issue now have your attention. As Mars passed over Uranus, you may have had a meltdown, or experienced someone else’s drama. This is a time when you look for trouble. If you succeeded as a troublemaker, know that you were releasing tension, but it shouldn’t be at someone else’s expense. In the future, when you feel upset – don’t hold on to negative feelings, they only get stronger and more destructive. With Venus in your 10th house of work, your social life has moved beyond the coffee counter at the office. An invitation to an important event may find its way into your mailbox. Open yourself up to making new friends and interacting with those of like minds. Who you know is a big part of moving ahead. With Venus, Saturn and Pluto in your 10th house of career, goals, and how the world sees you, makes it easier for others to take notice of your talents. This is the perfect time to challenge your vision and make sure you’re on the right path. Don’t wait for life to happen, make it happen. You can do so much more than you think you can. With the Sun in Aquarius, you may align yourself with a cause that speaks to your heart. When you work to make the world a better place, you feel good about yourself. If you’re in a relationship, the romantic itch has not worn off and you want to feel connected and appreciated by those you love. Create an atmosphere that supports those feelings. If you’re single, you could meet someone at work. Perhaps there’s a new co-worker that catches your eye.

Taurus (April 21st – May 20th)

As a Taurus, you’re feeling good about yourself – too good, which means you’ve managed to push reality away. Your ability to combine what you want the world to be and what is truly there, requires a bit of magic – which you have. Now add that amazing imagination to reality, and you’ll get the challenges you need to build up your character and strength. With Venus, your ruler, in Capricorn and your 9th house, you’re learning about yourself and what makes you tick. The struggles of the last few months have empowered and frustrated you. With Mars in your sign, you feel you can conquer the world and yet, you can’t see where you’re going. How powerful is your faith in your destiny? If you believe in your goals, you’ll see the next step. Mars is no longer moving toward a crisis, it’s separating from one. You’re angry at others, but the truth is, you’re responsible for where you are. Your choices brought you to this moment. If you want to change things, you can. Your destiny is in your hands. Jupiter in square to Neptune won’t allow you to live in illusion, so reality will take over. Don’t get depressed. There’s nothing wrong with a “pity party” as long as it doesn’t last longer than 15 min. We all need to feel sorry for ourselves, or give those negative emotions a voice, but holding on to them won’t help you move forward. Making a commitment to yourself will. If you’re in a relationship you feel in control, but that’s not what should make you happy. The only person you can control is yourself. If you’re single, you will find getting out of your routine helps you meet new and interesting partners.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

Geminis have strong ideals and yes, there is a need for perfection that often gets in the way of progress. Perfection should never be the quest, just keep improving, as you go, that’s all you can really hope for. Besides, everyone has a different view of what perfection is anyway. Your challenge as a Gemini is to allow the vision of yourself to evolve through experiences and new ideas. Remember, when you stop growing — you shrink. There is no such thing as standing still. With Mercury and Neptune in your 10th house, you have high expectations and that’s a good thing. Don’t let the lack of faith around you influence your commitment. Remember, your gift is your ability to connect and communicate your ideas. The Sun is in Aquarius, so new ideas are what you’re focusing on. Your mind is sharp and you know instinctually what will work and what won’t, so trust your gut. With Mars finally out of Aries and in Taurus, you feel energized, but impatient. You’re ready for life to happen and happen your way. Pluto, Saturn and Venus in Capricorn advances the transformation process. They won’t let you stray from your commitment to evolve. If you’re in a relationship you feel disappointed because you’re not getting the support you deserve. However, if you don’t buckle, they’ll will begin to show up. They know you’re right, but fear is strong. If you’re single, don’t give in to your feelings that Mr. or Mrs. Soul Mate will never be found. When you’re ready, things happen.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

Cancers occupy the base of a chart. You provide the emotional foundation that other signs gain strength from. Wherever you go, you gravitate toward a supporting role, even if you are the star. You are drawn to community and feeling connected to the world. Know it’s the depth of your feelings that contribute to your creative energy. With Mars recently having entered Taurus and Uranus at the end of Aries, you feel pulled in a direction different than you are headed. It’s the past that’s being replayed before it is discarded once and for all. Then it’s time for a new vision. With Aries ruling your 10th house of goals and career, a new vision is taking over your life. You’ve been growing and evolving and now it’s time to embrace the next level of whatever you are doing. A greater vision of your life is waiting to be embraced. With Mercury conjunct Neptune, your intuition is heightened and it’s important that you listen to the messages you receive. They’re there to guide you. However, wherever you are holding on to illusion, this is where you’ll be disappointed. Pay attention and heal the problem. With Venus, Saturn and Pluto in your house of relationships, you could be in the news, or you might be forming a partnership when it comes to your work. That side of your life is demanding attention. If you’re in a relationship, you either feel left out or you’re totally happy about what’s going on — perhaps a little of both. If you’re single, you could be obsessed with someone who is not really available – at least for now. Try not to drive yourself crazy.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

As a Leo you love to receive and give attention. Your natural charm provides an advantage, others are drawn to your confidence and want to help you advance. If they have something you need, they’ll share it with you. This week someone new has entered your life and he or she is opening a few doors when it comes to your goals. Be grateful and find a way to return the gift in your own way. Work is not your challenge, you’re busy – in fact you don’t have a lot of free time. This doesn’t mean that change is not in the air. Once Mars enters Taurus in March, a shift occurs and its unexpected. It’s part of your destiny so don’t get upset, it’s meant to happen. The question you need to ask, is where you want to be. Either your present position provides enough of a challenge and reward or it doesn’t. If it’s now working for you, then it’s time to move on.. You’re ready for a leap of faith. Take whatever time you need to get centered and organized, and don’t be afraid of the unexpected. Things drop into your life for the right reason. Tie up loose ends, get those papers off your desk. You are seeking a deeper connection to your work. If you’re following your passion and it’s not working, you just haven’t found the right environment – but you will. Use your instincts as a guide. They’re strong now and if you’re not in the right place you’ll know it. Self-deception is not a possibility with Jupiter square Neptune – illusions are under attack. With the sun in Aquarius, you yearn for a feeling of freedom. If you’re in a relationship, you have support and love. If you’re single, you’re eager to have a relationship that fulfills you emotionally. If that’s what you want, that’s what you will get.

Virgo  (August 23rd – September 22nd)

Virgos are yearning for risk and adventure, for new avenues and ideas – but then they also want to feel secure. The unknown requires faith, and when you feel it, you know what a real sense of safety feels like. The truth is, the feeling of comfort is a problem. Comfort comes from having a routine that keeps you stuck, because you don’t take risks or try new things. It’s time to get out of the box and stretch those boundaries. In the unknown there are no limits, only what you decide they are. Your companion of uncertainty is your values. Without strong ones, you can easily be seduced into doing something you may regret later. Moral boundaries are the architecture of good character. The challenge now is to go inside and face any resistance you have at being the best version of yourself. See where you’re holding yourself back; where are you living only on the surface. It’s time to embrace your uniqueness and your greatness. With Mercury conjunct Neptune in Pisces, the inner doors of faith are open; listen to your instincts and you’ll know what to do. Venus in Capricorn improves your social life. However, perhaps your idea of fun has changed. Repeating old pleasures may not do the trick, it’s time for new friends and new experiences. Virgos always need a challenge or they lose touch with themselves. If you’re in a relationship there is a sense of disappointment, perhaps you’re just projecting your issues onto your partner. You’re the only one in charge of your happiness. If you’re single, focus on yourself first. Once you know what you want it’s easy to find it.

Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)

Libra is the sign when the soul begins to focus on others – on a relationship. You are ready to be challenged and to make the necessary compromises that always arise in a relationship. The quest is not to give up your truth or your sense of uniqueness, but rather enhance who you are by being with someone who values your essence. With your ruler, Venus, in Capricorn until March 2nd, you are feeling strong and social. Others want to be around you and it’s a great opportunity to network and advance your agenda. With Mars having passed Uranus, the tension of that conjunction has decreased. It’s time to mend any bad feelings and move on. Your foundation, that is your home and inner emotions have held your attention for a while. What you are sorting out is how you feel about yourself. Extricating yourself from the dramas of others is the real challenge. Learn to focus on your path, you have your own destiny and it doesn’t depend on anyone else. Whatever you do, don’t be hard on yourself – but see the truth. You did the best you could in that moment, if you’re stronger now, then you’ll change your position. If you’re in a relationship, things will begin to heal and you’ll start to feel better about yourself and your partner. The Mars\Uranus conjunction brought up old wounds and made you look at them. Hopefully, you saw them in a new light. If you’re single, you’re looking for love. You feel lonely and deprived and you’re more open to a real relationship.

Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)

Scorpio energy can be so misunderstood. Perhaps it invokes envy, because your inner strength is something that others wish they had. The strength you have has been earned, either in this life or a previous one. So be proud. What really separates you is your courage and depth of understanding. As a Scorpio, you are seldom satisfied with how things appear to be, you know it’s just a mask for what lies beneath the surface. You see what’s real and what’s not. Your ability to pick out a real gem from the fakes is amazing. Jupiter is your friend, wherever you’re stuck in illusion, you’ll see the truth. It’s making a square to Mercury and Neptune. Fantasies can’t survive — reality rules. The part of you that is grounded, is the leader now. Communication is important. You’re either silent or very talkative; if you have something to say nothing will shut you up. there is a lot of knowledge you want to impart to others and if you’re not teaching a class, you’re going to be helping those below you figure out their next step. You’re the light showing them the way. With Mars having passed Uranus, tension has diminished – but you are not as affected by it as the other signs. You get energized when there is an intensity in the air. It makes you feel alive and it keeps you focused. If you’re in a relationship, things are changing. With Uranus about to enter Taurus, you and your partner have been evolving, hopefully together. If you’re single, get ready for the unexpected. You’ll meet new possibilities in the strangest of places.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

Sagittarians are the gurus of the universe. You are attracted to truth and justice and you expect things to be fair. Of course, life seldom is. It’s up to each of us to use our own moral code to keep the world a safe place. Remember, what you do, is also what you attract, so demand the best from yourself and you won’t be disappointed. Finances are a focus with Venus, Saturn and Pluto in your 2nd house. You seldom put money as a priority, but you’re forced to look at your investments and how you spend your pay check. Remind yourself of your worth and if you’re underpaid, keep your eyes open for something more rewarding. Don’t let others or events fill you with insecurity. You have your own destiny, so see yourself where you want to be. With Mars in your 6th house, work is a focus. It’s not the amount of work that gets your attention, the question is do you enjoy it – are you doing what you love. You have a new dream that is getting traction or wants more attention. It’s forcing you to reexamine what’s meaningful to you and what is not. It’s time to adjust, because you feel the forces of change happening within and around you. Jupiter will be in your sign until December, it gives you the strength you need to move forward. The good news is you’re finally important in your own mind and so that’s what you project. You realize if you don’t put yourself first, no one else will. If you’re in a relationship, one of you wants something more than the other. If it’s you who has to compromise, do it. If you’re single, romantic love is a possibility. And of course, it could lead to something. Give it a try.

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

Capricorn is all about boundaries and the structure of your life. And it is that structure that many a Capricorn often overlooks. If you build on a weak foundation, a bad storm can topple you, so pay attention to details and check what is hidden from your view. Whatever happens, your greatest gift is your resourcefulness and ability to meet a crisis with a clear mind. With three planets in your sign, the reality of your life is in your face, both the good and the bad. With Jupiter in square to Neptune, fantasies are attacked and what’s left is what is real for now. What needs to happen is a shift in your thinking, because you see yourself and your life differently. This is not forever, just long enough for you to make adjustments. Whatever your situation, there are new ways to make money. I’m not sure if it’s a side job, a book you’ve been writing, or just a new way of doing your old job that brings you more of a reward. The Mars\Uranus conjunction happened in your 4th house of the home. You’ve had to rethink who’s in charge and how things are handled at home. Once you make these changes you begin to move forward. The sun in Aquarius is in trine to your 10th house of career. New ideas and desire will motivate you to put them into action. You’ll know which ones to pursue. If you’re in a relationship, you’ve had a lot going on and it’s distracted you from being together. Resolve that problem. If you’re single, it’s a great time to understand that it is the balance of unity and independence that makes a great relationship.

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

As an Aquarian you love surprises and now and for a while longer that’s what your life is all about. Let go of the control, don’t respond too quickly to the drama, and know what you want. It’s actually the best way to live your life. The challenge is to say no without guilt. You have to disappoint others to do the right thing for you. Knowing what you want is a big plus. Clarity of mind and vision is an asset for any sign, but for an Aquarian it’s a necessity. Sounds simple, but separating your desires from those of others is not an easy feat, especially if you had strong, controlling parents. The Sun in your sign helps you gain clarity and a sense of empowered. The Sun is sextile Uranus, Mars and Jupiter. Sextiles are opportunity and your path is full of them. However, you have to take a risk to make one of them happen. Everything has changed. What used to be right may now be wrong. Let go of the past and act from the needs of the moment. Friendships are strong and there’s a chance you’ll meet some new souls that resonate to your truth. Nurture them. They’ll help you advance and feel good about yourself. With Mercury and Neptune in Pisces, illusions can’t hold your attention, but they have no power. It’s time to let go and let reality back into the picture. If you’re in a relationship, you’re in charge this week and things will go your way. If you’re single, you may meet someone unexpectedly, but you have to make the first move. Don’t let someone of value get away. Seize the moment.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

Pisces, you are a mystery, even to themselves. One moment you are up, the next you’re down – do you trust that there’s a middle ground? To find it, you have to have faith. The middle ground doesn’t get its power from opposition or surrender, but from taking a stand for something you believe in. You didn’t realize how much power you have. This week you feel the need to communicate what’s going on inside your head and heart. Yes, others will listen, but you’re speaking out to hear yourself. Make sure you listen. With Jupiter in your 10th house, you have power and strength to accomplish great things, but you must do it with your feet on the ground. The square it makes to Neptune and Mercury cancels out fantasies, they don’t work at the moment. The Mars\Uranus conjunction is over and tension has decreased. If you take the time you’ll realize the issues that were making you crazy. Social events and clubs have taken on a new importance. You realize that its one way to feel more connected, to make new friends, and to get ahead in business. Friends help friends and the more good people you know the more you feel supported. With Mercury and Neptune conjunct in your sign, you feel inspired and your creativity has been empowered. If you’re in a relationship, you’re happy and idealistic, but you know you’re not looking at the whole truth. Sometimes you want to see what you want to see. If you’re single, it’s a romantic time and reality is less important.
