December 14th – December 20th

Are visions of sugar-plums dancing in your head, or are you too tired to even dream of sweets and the perfect gift – if such a thing exists. This week begins with three planets in Pisces: Neptune, Moon and Mars — fantasy rules. Reality has a tough time around the holidays. If things don’t turn out the way you want them too, don’t feel deprived or play the role of victim, happiness comes from within. This is a time for spirituality, imagination, community, family and love. If your life is a mess, try and help someone else, it will make you feel better. When you give joy, you receive it. Uranus is retrograding back into Aries and old issues may reemerge and ask for a final judgement. Soon the change that has been imposed upon you will be accepted and peace will return. Wisdom and faith are strong and old wounds are being healed. It’s Venus in Scorpio in trine to Neptune that’s helping you out. Forgive yourself, forgive others and you’ll be able to move on. Goals are center stage with New Year’s only two weeks away. Life will always be a challenge and the most important thing you can give yourself is love. Be kind to “yours truly” and you’ll find it easier to be kind to others.

Aries (March 21st – April 20th)

Aries represent new beginnings and yet when change happens that you do not initiate, it can make you panic. It’s one thing to seek an adventure, but when change is forced upon you, it makes you resist – even if you want it. This week you will either feel in charge or become engaged in a power struggle. The real problem is expectations, you’ve been waiting for something more: a bigger bonus, a new position or perhaps more power. Whatever it is you’re hoping for, won’t be enough – but it’s a beginning. Remember conflict is your friend. The more you struggle for something the stronger you get, if you learn from the battle. Venus, ruler of your money house, makes a trine to Neptune, the Moon and Mars – this is about your finances — they will improve. Whatever surprises that come your way will end up in your favor. So, try and enjoy the ride. Your instincts are strong, in fact your primal nature is a big part of your talents. It makes you sexy and quick in your response. When chaos reigns, your gut becomes the guiding light. It will tell you yes or no if you ask for advice. Relationships are very good. There is a sense of giving and forgiving that prevails. Take advantage of the good feelings and reconnect. There’s nothing like the magic of the holidays to make someone feel loved. If you’re single, love is in the air and how you meet someone new may surprise you.

Taurus (April 21st – May 20th)

As a Taurus, you’re good at masking your desires, but not controlling them. Just as a root buries itself into the earth, seeking nourishment and protection, you hide your desires so others won’t trample on them. You’re stronger than you think and not as powerful as you want to be, so start paying attention to who you really are and what gets in the way of your success. You’re making new friends and learning about them will teach you something about yourself. With Uranus opposite Venus, your ruler, you are able to cut through delusion and see the truth. Don’t be surprised if you find it warm and comforting – after all, you can depend upon it. Once you embrace your truth, you’ll find yourself unstoppable. Aquarius rules your 10th house of career, you’re a soul that loves to live on the cutting edge, the heartbeat of a new idea. Once you allow yourself this experience, you won’t be easily seduced by the desires of others. You’ll be your own person. With the Sun, Jupiter and Mercury in Sagittarius, squaring the Pisces planets, you’re in enough internal conflict to keep you searching for answers. That’s a good thing. When you’re safe and complacent, you get into trouble. The trine from Saturn to Uranus helps you take the old and turn it into something innovative. Relationships are having their own struggles, so take care of yourself and try and be supportive. If you’re single you may turn a friend into a romantic adventure and wonder why you didn’t think of it before.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

Geminis have the ability to turn something neglected and worn into a vision of beauty. Now that’s a talent. It’s all about choice. Your ability to see what is needed in a project or in someone’s life, gives you the power to shape or transform the outcome. Make sure you offer your time to those who appreciate your gifts, otherwise its a waste of your time – and time is precious. When it comes to seeing others correctly, you must get out of possibilities and realize that not everyone wants to improve and grow. Too much fantasy keeps the negative details of life out of the picture and when you allow this to happen, you set yourself up for disappoint or worse yet, to be deceived. The good news is truth is the issue of the moment and the universe demands everyone’s attention. Venus, the ruler of truth, is in Scorpio and trine Neptune, Moon and Mars in Pisces. The negatives in your life can easily be turned into something useful and new. The focus this week is on your career and goals. Don’t let others distract you and try and keep you to your old routines. To be successful, you need things to change and you have to be prepared to handle the unexpected. Relationships are strong, supportive and uncomfortable with your success. They’ll get used to it, so just keep moving forward. If you’re single, you’ll find several souls that turn you on, now it’s up to you to see who has staying power.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

Cancers seek to fill in the emotional gap that lives within us all. The gap is caused by the judgments of others and it’s up to you to decide if they’re right or just afraid of differences. As a Cancer you struggle with being unique and fitting in. As you try to embrace socially acceptable qualities, you may repress what makes you special. Your mission is to retrieve those lost parts. The world wants innovation and yet it does everything possible to prevent it from emerging. That’s why you need to believe in what you have to offer. Cancers are at the forefront of change. With Neptune, the Moon and Mars in Pisces, occupying the 9th house of ideals and new ideas, there’s a battle or two to fight before you get noticed. Cancer’s live in internal conflict, it’s the reason they appear shy or seem to avoid attention. They neutralize their environment, because the real conflict is going on inside. The Sun \ Uranus trine, helps you make changes without too much effort. You just have to know what it is you want. Venus in Scorpio trine Neptune, keeps your idealisms high. You yearn for perfection and its fantasy, but you’re also interested in what others discard. One minute you’re floating in the clouds, and in the next, you’re a scavenger going through whatever others discard. Honor both sides of yourself and you’ll find happiness. With Saturn and Pluto in your 7th house of partnerships you need a tough partner. If you’re single, it’s the same, you don’t like it when others let you get away with your nonsense.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

Leos are a symbol of strength and success. Add the Sun in Sagittarius and this fire sign feels invincible. As a Leo you are moving toward the bigger picture and away from personalizing everything that happens to you. You can get stuck in problems that really have nothing to do with you. You are learning that getting attention is easy when you have embraced a truth and turned it into a passion. Now all that’s missing is the struggle. Passion only comes to the surface when it meets resistance. Without a challenge to overcome or a problem to solve, your personal power will only get you into trouble. With Neptune, Mars and the Moon in square to the Sun Jupiter and Mercury, there are plenty of obstacles to overcome. You feel stalled by the uncertainty of others or your own self-doubt. Perhaps the problem lies in the fact that deep down you want change, even though you’re still unclear on what it will look like. As you enter the New Year, your path will become evident and then you’ll take action. Your ability to embrace hard work without complaining is an advantage and it gets you ahead of the competition. If there are any changes you want to make, Uranus in trine to the Sun, will help you implement them with ease. Relationships are in transition in a good way, just let them happen organically. If you’re single, it should be easy for you to meet new people who fascinate you. It’s the first step in finding the right partner.

Virgo  (August 23rd – September 22nd)

Virgo is known for organizing chaos as long as the chaos is not in their backyard. When it’s too close, they feel the uncertainty that is always present and it enhances their fear of not being in control. This is a sign that values power, but what is power? Is it money and success or is it the ability to have faith, even in a crisis? With the Sun, Jupiter and Mercury in Sagittarius, ruler of their 4th house, you feel empowered for now because you’re clear on what you want. The ability to focus is your greatest asset. So, use it now. The Mars \ Neptune conjunction in Pisces helps you cope with the uncertainty of others, without letting it throw you off center. Strength comes from commitment so make sure you’ve made yours by the New Year. The more certain you are that you deserve what you want, the easier it is to get it. There’s nothing wrong with faking your confidence until its real. Saturn and Pluto in your 5th house increases your sense of authority. Uranus in trine to the Sun gives you a feeling of excitement. The change you’re embracing makes you feel alive. With Venus in good aspect, financial matters are good – if you need a raise it’s not a bad time to ask for one. Relationships are both amazing and difficult. You’re connected, but you don’t want the same things. If you’re single, idealistic love is happening. Can it be real? Only time will tell.

Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)

A Libra loves truth, beauty and harmony and you have all these things if you believe you do. Beauty includes a kind heart and your truth does not require others to agree with it. Thus, harmony is only possible if you can accept that others are different and may not agree with your point of view. Standing up for yourself requires self-worth. Without it, you won’t get very far. The Sun, Jupiter and Mercury conjunction in your 3rd house, has encouraged you to speak up and not let anyone boss you around – but of course someone will try. There are those in your life who believe they know best. Your truth is as important as their truth. With Venus in trine to Mars, Neptune and the Moon, you are more aware than ever that you think differently than others. Since Saturn entered Capricorn in December of last year, you’ve been feeling more secure and certain about your role in life. You realize you have a lot to offer and you’re smarter than most. All you need is confidence. Uranus in trine to the Sun helps you make any necessary adjustments. Relationships are both wonderful and challenging. You feel connected at a soul level, but there are other things that clash. If you want it to work, you’ll figure it out. If you’re single, you will meet those that challenge you, and hopefully they will also fit into your world. You need both qualities for it to work. Keep that in mind.

Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)

As a Scorpio, you don’t respect authority, you respect intelligence and power. If someone shows you they are worthy of respect — you give it. Of course, this way of handling the world makes you stand out and it often gets you into trouble. Those with the position to turn your life into a nightmare will do so, especially if you expose their weaknesses in front of others. With your ruler, Pluto, in your 3rd house along with Saturn, communicating your ideas has become important. It’s never enough to know the truth, you have to be aware of your environment and if it will be received or seen as an attack. Otherwise, you just stir up trouble. Financially, things are going well, although you do have to be careful of overspending. Something is draining the coffers and you need to fix the leak. The trine from Uranus to the Sun, indicates you’re considering a new business partner, or perhaps you’re just relying on someone else’s knowledge. A Scorpio’s talent is their ability to extract useful information form others in the know. Once they have gathered together what they need, they can put it to good use. Relationships should do well now. They’re independent and that allows you more freedom. If you’re single, love is possible. In fact, you will probably attract it.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

Jupiter, your ruler, has returned home. What it brings to you is wisdom and support, two things that increase your confidence and opportunity. If you’re eager to embrace a risk, or pursue a passion, then your newfound strength will reduce yours fears. With Jupiter and Neptune strong, there is not much you cannot do if you commit to the goal. Don’t dismiss the struggle, it’s been there to clear your mind and help you focus. Your strength lifts you up and helps you see the bigger picture and so the view from above changes your choices. You can see alternative roads that lead to your goals. With Pisces ruling your 4th house of the home, and the Moon, Neptune and Mars passing through, you’ll be challenged to have faith – which ultimately means that its important to trust your gut, not your fear. It’s time to get beyond the wounds of your childhood and own your destiny. The trine from Uranus to the Sun enhances your mission, you won’t get ahead through a direct path, the universe has its own short cuts – trust in what happens. There is no sign more persevering than yours, all you have to do is commit. Finances are better than usual, but you’re still working too hard, perhaps because that’s what you do. If you’re in a relationship, things are going well. You’re working together as never before. If you’re single, your future mate is right in front of you. So open your eyes and your heart and you’ll connect.

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

As a Capricorn you have a nose for opportunity. Blessed with an instinctive nature, you respond to how things feel more than you realize. With Uranus at the base of your chart, change has happened and its forced you to adjust. You feel confident and it has allowed you to try new things. With Uranus trine the Sun, there is money to be made, and it will come to you on a silver platter. Pay attention, it could be very good. It’s a reward for past effort and relationships that have been built over time. Saturn on your ascendant makes you cautious; things have to make sense on paper to get your interest. The Moon, Neptune and Mars in Pisces in your 3rd house emphasizes the importance of good communication. Don’t hold back, say what you believe and don’t protect others from your truth. You’ll regret it later. With Libra ruling your 10th house of career, your luck kicks in once you’re on the right path. Venus in trine to the Moon, Neptune and Mars makes new friendships a real possibility. It’s important to expand your world so open up and give others a chance. If you’re in a relationship you are connected, but physically you’ve been absent. If that’s true, make sure you show your partner that you care. If you’re single, you are yearning to meet the right person. Just be clear on what you want and you’ll find it.

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

As an Aquarian, you are very aware of what makes you different. It’s not easy to follow your own path when others are threatened by differences and do whatever they can to keep you in the box. There is a battle going on between wanting to please and wanting to be uniquely yourself. You can’t have both at the same time. With Neptune, the Moon and Mars in your 2nd house of Pisces, and in trine to Venus, money has once again become an issue. You tend to ignore its value or value it too much – especially when your freedom is curbed. Venus in your 10th house of career helps you move forward. Accept your power and put yourself first, at least for a while. With Uranus, your ruler, in retrograde, you’re going back over old issues and there is a new vision of yourself that will be forged. You are unique and the trine from the Sun will bring recognition. Make sure you own it, it’s deserved. Pluto and Saturn in your 12th house keeps you behind the scenes for now; its position allows you the time to get everything organized before your next leap of faith. New friendships are about to be forged. They may not be what you were expecting, but they are helpful and exciting. Only a few souls should make their way into your inner sanctum. All the others get a piece of you when you decide. Relationships are very good, you’re finally getting the attention you deserve. If you’re single, just put yourself out there and someone will claim you for their own.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

As a Pisces you’ve been feeling your power and now it’s time to use it. Are you clear on what you want to accomplish? Are your goals defined? Do you know what makes you happy? If you’ve been merely drifting through life without deciding what it is you want, now is the time to start making important life choices. With the Sun, Jupiter and Mercury in your 10th house of career, opportunity is everywhere, that is, if you know what you want. If not, it will just create confusion and excitement and when it’s gone so will be your chance to change your life. Venus in trine to Neptune, Moon and Mars is making the next step easy, if you have the faith to take a risk. It’s time to play with dreams; don’t let them play with you. They need direction and commitment to happen. Friendships can be rewarding, and it’s time to expand your sphere of influence and fun. Open up to that new person at work. You make the first move, don’t let someone else have to do all the work. Uranus is back in your 2nd house of finance in trine to the Sun. Anything can happen so be prepared to be surprised. If it feels good — say yes. Open yourself up to a new experience. Relationships are good and helpful. Don’t get upset if you don’t agree on everything, work with what brings unity. The rest will take care of itself. If you’re single, you could easily meet a few new possibilities. But you have to be open for love to enter your life.
