Cosmic Views – by Linda Joyce

November 15th – November 21st

The week is full of transitions. It begins with Mars about to enter Scorpio and oppose Uranus. Scorpio is the sign of power, and when these planets connect, they clash. This happens on the 19th and the intensity of your life increases. Don’t be surprised if the anger in you or around you increases. The last time Mars\Uranus clashed was in July. They made a square to each other and sparks began to fly. The opposition is less harsh, but chances are you’ll still feel it. At the same time Mars squares Pluto which only adds to the conflict. Pluto is stubborn and won’t budge. And thus the Titans will bash heads. Try not to get in the middle. In fact, step back and let things pass – it won’t last forever. If you do, you’ll get a better perspective on what’s really happening. With the Sun and Mercury in Scorpio, trine Neptune, your imagination and creativity are at an all-time high. Neptune at 15 degrees, the mid-point of Pisces, brings your spirituality to a turning point. If you’re someone who has been pursuing understanding yourself at a deeper level, you’ll begin to feel more empowered. If you’ve been avoiding your spiritual side, then you may begin to feel the lack of a soft place to land in your life. Mercury goes direct on the 21st, and things begin to move one way or the other. Get ready to make things happen.

Aries (March 21st – April 20th)

Aries is full of energy, and if it’s going to be used in a positive way, they need to direct it toward something good. This week Mars, your ruler, is square Pluto and in opposition to Uranus. Things are changing, and they’re not; what isn’t moving is you. You want the world to adjust – but nothing changes until you do. With Mars and Uranus in battle, you feel the pressure to see things differently. The square to Neptune is helping you out. Your escape hatches are closed so you can’t escape into old illusions. Let them go. With no place to hide, you’re forced to see things in a new light. This is a blessing, not a curse. You tend to measure yourself against perfection, so you come up lacking. The challenge is to accept all that you are, flaws included. Your mistakes help create who you are. Perfection is not attractive. With Jupiter at the end of Sagittarius, about to enter your 10th house of career, things will be changing in your favor soon. Jupiter will bring new opportunities to expand your work. Get ready to take advantage of them. Mars square Saturn and Pluto in your 10th house create resistance to your efforts at work, or you refuse to accept what others offer. Your judgmental behavior can turn others against you. So, don’t give advice unless you’re asked. With Neptune trine the Sun and Mercury, ideas and possibilities are not a problem. Your imagination is strong, and that’s a plus. If you’re in a relationship, things are not perfect, just annoying – ignore them. If you’re single, you prefer fantasy to reality – as long as you’re aware, it’s not a problem.

Taurus (April 21st – May 20th)

The quest for a Taurus is unconditional love. They want to have your love in spite of what they do. However, the challenge for you is to acknowledge the consequences. What you do today can affect you years later. A stupid post on Instagram can keep you out of the college of your choice. It’s a difficult lesson, but an important one. With Uranus in your sign it’s a great time to become more independent and in charge of your life. You want freedom, but freedom demands you take responsibility for yourself. It’s always been easy for you to find others to take care of you, but handling everything yourself is not something that interests you. Jupiter square Neptune makes you see yourself more clearly. Many of your illusions have been challenged and laid to rest leaving you with a great deal more space for reality. Fill it with a routine that builds and shapes your goals, and you’ll create something no one can take away. With Neptune trine the Sun and Mercury, you are feeling better about yourself no matter what’s going on. What’s important now is faith. You need it for the unknown, so you don’t panic and do something self-destructive. If you approach your problems with an intention to fix them, you will. Mars square Pluto makes relationships difficult. You’re angry, and it comes from old wounds. Step back and try and see things differently. If you’re single, you can have a good time, but for now, you’re not ready to make a commitment.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

Geminis are adaptable. You know how to fit in wherever you go, and it gives you an advantage. When you’re a people person, you make connections easily, and a big part of getting ahead is knowing the right person. With your ruler in Scorpio, in your 6th house this week, there’s a focus on work. You’ll be busy and get a lot done. The trine Mercury makes to Neptune puts a positive glow to whatever you do. What upsets you is those in charge. Mars square Pluto makes it difficult to get certain ideas across or just get things done “your way.” There are rules and regulations and stubborn people in important places, so be flexible, especially if the world is not. With the Sun trine Neptune, communication is intuitive, and new ideas flow. Mars opposite Uranus stirs up anger and a desire for greater independence. You want things your way. And why not. However, few people accept change easily, even if it’s to their advantage. So proceed with caution. Jupiter sextile Mars increases the emotions you feel, so your anger is more intense. Don’t let it get out of hand. Neptune in your 10th house continues to inspire you and lead you down the right path. Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn keep you digging deeper into yourself. There are things from the past that need to be looked at. If you’re in a relationship, your differences are more apparent this week. Don’t let it get to you. If you’re single, you’re idealistic, and the most important thing is your work. Remember, when you’re not looking for something, often that’s when you find it.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

Cancers are quiet and very stubborn. They don’t complain or oppose you; they just ignore you. It’s very effective. Your ruler, the Moon, is the fastest moving planet of the zodiac. It changes signs so quickly it’s difficult for you when you dig in. The universe wants to keep you fluid and evolving. Precisely because you cope with so many emotional shifts, it’s important to have strong core values that don’t fluctuate. The more connected you are to yourself, the less your emotional ups and downs really matter. With the Sun and Mercury in Scorpio trine Neptune, you need to direct your feelings toward your goals, not old wounds. If you get stuck feeling sorry for yourself, you’ll miss a chance to rise above your problems and move forward. Keep space between you and those in authority. With Mars square Pluto, you’re not going to be heard if they’ve made up their mind — let go. Instead, get out of the way, so you’re not the scapegoat of someone else’s issues. With Venus and Jupiter in Sagittarius, the truth is what you’re holding on to. Just keep it to yourself and know exactly what’s right and where you’re going. When the road is clear, move forward. Mars opposite Uranus in Taurus may bring new friends that challenge the way you see yourself and the world. That’s a good thing. The more differences you surround yourself with, the less chance you have of getting stuck in a rut. If you’re in a relationship, your partner has new opportunities that bring excitement about the future. If you’re single, you’re open to meeting people other than your typical stereotype. You’re ready to stop playing it safe and take a risk.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

Leos are outgoing socially, but few souls get invited into their inner sanctum. You may think you know a Leo, but there are a lot of things they keep to themselves. It gives them power. You see what they want you to see. With the Sun in Scorpio, secrecy is strong. Things are not moving as quickly as you’d like. Part of that comes from Mars square Saturn and Pluto. You’re not going to get anyone to budge through force – you’re going to have to outsmart them. Neptune in trine the Sun and Mercury enhance your imagination and genius. You’ll find a way if you look for it. Jupiter moves out of Sagittarius on December 3rd and activates your 5th house – the house of Leo. Get ready to feel empowered and strong. The sextile Jupiter makes to Mars gives you an extra dose of energy. It brings a feeling of being recharged. With Uranus in your 10th house, you’ve been coping with a change you don’t want. However, you can finally see that it all makes sense. If you’re changing jobs, it’s because it’s best for you. Let it go. If your job has changed where you work, then you’re adjusting to all that is new. Go with the flow. Saturn and Pluto are in your 6th house of work, keeping you focused and busy. You won’t have a lack of work. Don’t worry if you’re freelancing; you’ll be presented with new ways to make money. If you’re in a relationship, your partner needs alone time. Give it to them. If you’re single, it’s not a good time to advance an old relationship or meet someone new.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

Virgos are known for their intellectual powers and their ability to find their way out of a problem. Your mind is flexible. With Uranus in trine to the Sun and Mercury in Virgo, how you see yourself is evolving. This is a time to make changes, and you’ll get help from the universe. Neptune trine the Sun and Mercury bring a new dimension to your ideas. Your creativity is strong, and you find yourself beyond your safety – and that’s where life begins. You can’t create something new if you always make the same choice. Venus square Neptune fogs your vision of others. Be careful you’re not led astray because you want to like someone. If you look for the truth, you’ll find it. With Mars opposite Uranus avoid others that make you angry. It’s too easy for you to lose your temper. Don’t make enemies because you lack self-control. It will hurt you in the long run. If you feel anger walk away. Mercury and the Sun in Scorpio help you ferret out information you would normally overlook. Get rid of the past and make room for the new. If you’re in a relationship, your partner is happy, and you are too. Perhaps it’s because you’re both present. Neptune in your 7th house has made the truth difficult to see in the past. This week you can make up for it. The clearer you are with yourself, the easier it is to cope with others. If you’re single, you have a good chance of meeting someone in your neighborhood. Get out of the house and take a walk.

Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)

Libras are blessed with the ruler Venus, the planet that represents both money and love. These two issues dominate your desires. Venus in Sagittarius square Neptune enhances your idealism, especially when it comes to love. When you’re in this state of mind, it’s very easy to get fooled or misled. There’s nothing wrong with a little escape from reality, but if you live in your imaginary world, you’ll end up missing opportunity and feeling stuck. The Sun and Mercury in Scorpio keep your feet on the ground and brings a practical approach to finances. Scorpio energy is shrewd, and it knows how to ferret out the truth. They feel the collective voice and know when it’s about to shift. An important talent if you want to make money. Mars opposite Uranus creates an atmosphere without patience. Getting angry, even at those you don’t want to, is a possibility. Those in authority may annoy you. If you can walk away, please do. Anger is seldom constructive, but it does release tension. It hasn’t been easy having Pisces rule your 6th house of work. You either let others in too much or keep them at arm’s length. What you should learn to do is to meet the moment. There are times to let down your guard and other times to keep your distance. If you’re in a relationship, things are challenging at the moment. Neither one of you feels peaceful, so there can be problems – but only temporary. If you’re single, you feel energized and eager to get what you want. You could meet someone if you’re open.

Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)

Scorpios have the unique ability to value their own opinion over everyone else’s. It may seem arrogant, but it’s actually very wise. When you listen to yourself, you find your destiny and your purpose, and you do it your way. With the Sun and Mercury in your sign, in trine to Neptune, that inner voice gets support. You feel clear about your next step, even if everyone else doesn’t agree with you. The truth is, that’s your mission. Draw a line between the light and the shadow, and try and stay centered. Don’t be seduced by goodness or darkness; too much of one will throw you off-center. You are often drawn to what others discard; it’s your eye for value, and it keeps you one step ahead of everyone else. With Venus and Jupiter in Sagittarius, you are supported on your journey. These planets are the warriors of wisdom, and they will not let you go astray. With Saturn and Pluto in your 3rd house, it’s not always easy to get others to speak up or take a risk. They’ve dug themselves in and are trying to keep change at bay. Not really possible. With Mars opposite Uranus, it’s easy to get upset over nothing. Don’t let misplaced anger get you into trouble. Stay away from situations you know will push your button. If you’re looking to get rid of tension – join a gym or scream in the shower. Don’t take it out on others and destroy friendship over nothing. If you’re in a relationship, you feel a loss of control. It adds to your discomfort. Take care of yourself, and things will work out. If you’re single, it’s a great time to meet others who are different than you are. You’re looking for an adventure, not a relationship.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

Sagittarius is the sign of the wanderer. You’re seeking an environment that is like you, that supports who you are or want to be. Sagittarians are known to not fit into their family no matter how much they love them – you’re different. Acknowledge that, and the path you are meant to take will present itself. With both Venus and Jupiter in your sign this week, you feel strong and empowered. In fact, doors may open where once they were closed. Venus always finds a way. With the Sun and Mercury in Scorpio and your 12th house, you’re getting messages from the other side. It’s reinforcing the faith you have in what you want. Things are about to happen, and hopefully you’re prepared. Finances have been a struggle. This year things are shifting, and you’ll make more money, which translates into more freedom. It’s what you’ve been praying for – the ability to do and pursue the things you’re passionate about. Mars opposite Uranus has changed your work schedule. You’re finding new ways to get things done. Since you have an excess of wisdom, you now have new ways to use it. It has inspired your spirit. Neptune square the Sunand Mercury activates the dreamer in you. When you allow yourself to journey into unfamiliar thoughts, new ideas emerge. If you’re in a relationship, your partner is gaining new insight into themselves. Don’t be afraid to add your perspective to the picture. If you’re single, someone else may find you and make the first move. However, it is up to you to say yes or no.

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

Capricorns have a critical eye. You see what’s missing. It makes you an important expert in the universe. For others, you are a challenge especially when they don’t want the truth. Learn not to offer advice unless you’re asked or paid for it. This week you get negativity from those close to you. Someone is not happy with your vision or what you’re doing. As a free spirit who wants to keep the peace, it’s not always easy to do things your way. There’s always someone who wants to add their two cents to the picture. Jupiter has been preparing its departure from Sagittarius to your sign in early December. It will bring more opportunities and expand your work and position in whatever you are doing. With the sun and Mercury in Scorpio, friendships have proven valuable, and all the effort you have made on behalf of others is paying off. Adding to the commotion is a series of surprises. These are just opportunities you set in motion, and now they’re paying off. Enjoy your reward. Mars opposite Neptune creates an environment for anger. Stay away from souls who push your button. You won’t need much to set you off now. All Capricorns carry a perpetual degree of underlying anger. It’s part of the struggle you embrace so well. If you’re in a relationship, your partner is in a good place – enjoy it while it lasts. If you’re single, realize that you’re attracted to someone who takes you out of your rut and helps you do new things. Sure, you’ll probably complain the whole way, but you know its good for you.

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

Aquarians are gifted with a brilliant mind and a kind heart. What a combination. If the heart is too bleeding, it will interfere with your mental process, and all your natural intelligence will go toward saving the world. Not a bad thing, if you include yourself. Remember, you can’t ignore your ego until you have one. Make sure you build up your sense of self before you give it away. With Uranus in Taurus your desires and values are being rekindled. Take a close look at what you want to create. You may have put your destiny on hold because others won’t approve. They want you around to take care of their needs, not fulfill your own. Well, maybe they need to grow up, and you need to learn the word no. With the Sun and Mercury in Scorpio, ruler of your 10th house of career, it’s possible to hear good news when it comes to a project. You’re creative, and what you have to offer is important to express. Don’t let anyone stand in your way. To be successful, you need to know when to be selfish. Just listen to your own inner voice and follow it. Everyone has an opinion on how you should live your life. Do you really want to ignore your own truth so others won’t feel badly about their choices? With Neptune in your 2nd house of values and money, you’ll find that as you pull in, your world expands. You’ve been giving away too much energy, and this is your moment. If you’re in a relationship, your partner doesn’t see things the same way you do, and that’s okay. You’ve learned to overlook your differences. If you’re single, you want change in your life, not a commitment. Sometimes that’s when you find it.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

Pisces is either the easiest sign in the world or the most challenging. It’s easy when you know who you are and what you want. It’s impossible when you feel lost and lack faith in your journey. When you believe you attract what you want. With the Sun and Mercury in the 9th house you’re thinking about your purpose and your path. Are you working toward something that is fulfilling, or are you just paying the bills? As a Pisces, you need passion to make life happen. Without it you feel empty and lost. Ask yourself what turns you on, and the answer will come to you. Pay attention to yourself and not everyone around you. With Jupiter and Venus in Sagittarius you can easily get attention for your work. If you put yourself out there, others will take notice, and you’ll get praise for what you do. Neptune in your sign continues to challenge you to find your own truth. It’s all about blending the different aspects of your life. Take something from others, but add your own seasonings to the pot – make it your own. When you do, you become unique. Mars opposite Uranus creates an atmosphere of tension and anger. Stay away from friends who annoy you; it won’t end well. Stop worrying about failing and start enjoying the journey, good and bad. If something doesn’t work out – learn from it. If you’re in a relationship, your partner is striving for his or her goals and needs your support. Give it to them. If you’re single, it’s a great time to meet someone from a different culture or country. You like differences, so let your heart lead.
