Astro Update: September 2014

Astro Update: September 2014

Much of 2014 has felt a bit like a run-away train for many of us. The Grand Cardinal Cross in late April was the focal point for an enormous conflagration of planetary forces, and the “ripple effect” will continue to be felt for the rest of this year. Some of the energy from the Grand Cardinal Cross has been challenging and dramatic, on a personal level and on a global level. Events in the Ukraine and the Middle East bear a strong testament to the nature of these tense celestial influences. Further ramifications of things set in motion by this complex influence will be revealed more clearly by December 2014. 

But as Summer ends and Fall beckons, the 2014 Year of the Horse slows down to a gentle canter. September will not be boring, but will be a bit calmer and uneventful. Take advantage of this slight “lull” to gather your resources and prepare for the last quarter of the year. The productive, earthy energy of the Sun in Virgo blends nicely with other earthy and watery planets, calming our nerves and helping us to find more balance. It will also be a good period to catch up on any nagging health issues you may have been avoiding. But don’t delay if you need a check up or some maintenance on our body. You’ll want to get things accomplished before Mercury goes retrograde in early October, if any procedures or medical changes are in the offing. 

There’s a Full Moon in Pisces on September 8, and it promises to be a very favorable influence for love, and creativity. Pay particular attention to any dreams or impressions you might have on September 7 and 8, as the psychic energy will be running pretty high and your insights could prove quite profound. 

On September 22, 2014 is Fall Equinox, as the Sun enters Libra at about 7:30 Pacific Time. This seasonal change is made more auspicious falling close to a New Moon in Libra on September 24. This is a great week to make plans for the next months to come. It’s a “new start” vibration, to be sure.  October is bound to be a more dynamic and potentially demanding month, with Mercury Retrograde and 2 Eclipses, so the more you can get “squared away” in September, the better!  

Astro-Opportunity Dates: September 2, 8, 13, 25, 27, 29, 30

 Horoscopes for September 2014

For All the Signs: Get your groove on this month and find a good rhythm in your daily affairs. Work with the energy of Virgo to get your physical energy, your daily routine, health and diet, and work environment in sync. Take a look at your daily “schedule.” Do you even have one? Human bodies are very adaptable, but tend to do better when things are consistent. As Fall Equinox comes in, Libra will be the prevailing vibration. Use this energy to enhance relationships. Look at your own energy and take stock of what you are putting out to others and how they are responding to you. Then, make adjustments if necessary!

Aries (March 21-April 19) Many Rams are burned out from the wild roller-coaster ride of Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn messing with their heads and hearts. Pace yourself. And take heed, your health really is the bottom line. If that’s not working well, nothing else is likely to. Take time to recalibrate the body, mind, spirit connection. 

Taurus (April 20-May 20) Opportunities for love and creativity will surface at the beginning of the month. You’ll need those good vibes to temper the intense energy of Mars and Saturn in Scorpio trying to goad you into a Bullfight. Don’t waste time on pointless anger. If something or someone is bothering you, take positive action to change it.  

Gemini (May 21-June 20) Inner emotional issues become clear as things begin to calm down around you. How do you feel about your personal life? Is it in balance? How about your home environment? Is it a peaceful oasis or a hot mess? Calm down and simplify your life. 

Cancer (June 21-July 21) Positive influences in the financial arena are in the offing. This can be great news if you are seeking employment, a raise, or an increase in revenue. Things will go better is you don’t spread yourself too thin. 

Leo (July 23-August 22) Jupiter is on your side, Leo, so roll them dice. Great opportunities with money merge with some “lucky breaks.” Be ready to stretch your limits, but only if it makes sense. You may be tempted to go out on a limb that isn’t strong enough. 

Virgo (August 23-September 22) Strong harmonious vibrations surround you. People are noticing you, both on the job and personally. What will you do with all of this coolness? My suggestion, make hay while the sun shines, but have a good tie while you’re at it!  Social connections are enhanced, so make sure to get out there and connect! 

Libra (September 23-October 22) You may be feeling a bit quiet and circumspect this month. No worries. Take some time to get back in touch with yourself. There will be time for more action and adventure as the month ends. Rest up now and you’ll be ready when things heat up.     

Scorpio (October 23-Novemeber 21) Grab ahold of the Mars/Saturn conjunction in Scorpio and show everybody just how much you are truly capable of. It’s a good time to steady the course and remove any obstacles to your success. Social activities are enhanced. 

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) You will benefit greatly from fiery planetary energies this month. Put some thought and action in to the bigger picture of your life? Actions taken now could have positive effects for months to come. Both romance and career are highlighted. Not bad! 

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)  Put energy into self improvement and transformation. Are you walking your talk? Are you living your dream? If not, why? Time for some adjustments, both attitudinally and physically. Refine your goals. 

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) Emotions surface from deep within. Is there anything you really need to put behind you? If so, now’s the time. Also, take a good look at your relationships. Make a conscious effort to put more energy into people who really have your back.

Pisces (February 19-March 20) Dreams and realities converge and collide. You are finally getting a picture of where your life is headed. Here’s a gigantic hint: Don’t waste time on relationships that are based more on fantasy than reality. Stay in the NOW!

Astro Update: July 2014

Astro Update: July 2014

The month begins with Mercury going direct (yippee) on July 1, 2014.Issues connected to communication, travel, computers, home remodels, machinery, cars, and new projects will be much more positive now. So, if you’ve been holding your breath about making new plans you can exhale now! Hold off for a few more days before buying new phones or computers, though…Give Mercury a chance to straighten out a bit more. 

As usual, I’d like to add a note of caution for July. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t be a good astrologer. The Sun in Cancer will be opposing Pluto in Capricorn, and then squaring Uranus in Aries during the first days of the month. July 4 and July 8 will be key dates. This will “re-activate” the Grand Cardinal Cross, a controversial and volatile astrological influence that occurred in late April of 2014. Those of you who were on that wild roller-coaster ride around the last two weeks of April will remember it well, I imagine. 

Without being all doom and gloomy, suffice it to say that the beginning of July may have some drama associated with it. Power struggles are likely during this period, both on the personal level, and in the political arena. Oh, and the fact that the Sun/Pluto opposition is exact on July 4th makes it an auspicious and tense day for the Good Ole US of A, as that it her birthday. And a head’s up for Cancers born July 1-10. This will be a year of strong transformational energy for you!

There’s a Full Moon in Capricorn on July 12. Full Moons are a focal point for energy each month. With the Sun in Cancer and the Full Moon in Capricorn, the energy will be about the Yin/Yang polarity, responsibility, commitment, and family. This Full Moon sheds light on the balance, or lack thereof, between business life and personal life. Use the strong energy of the Full Moon to align yourself with your spiritual side, but remember to keep your feet on the ground!

There’s a New Moon in Leo on July 26, opening up a window for new thoughts and plans. New Moons are quiet, neutral, and potent times for inward reflection and preparation for future action. 

Astro-Opportunity Days: July 7, 8, 9, 16, 20, 25, 29 and 30. 

 Horoscopes for July 2014

For all the Sun Signs: Mercury direct will be a wonderful opportunity to get connected to your aspirations and ambitions. Some of the things that happened last month may have been frustrating. This is a great time to fix up anything that went haywire in June and put it behind you. Watery energy abounds with the Sun in Cancer, Jupiter in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio, and Neptune in Pisces. Take advantage of this unique vibe. Connect to your emotions. Share your feelings. Work with your psychic abilities. Connect to your dreams. All things “watery” are enhanced during this time period. Even being in or near water has a more powerful effect! So plan a trip to an ocean, lake, or river near you! This is also a fantastic time for art and creativity. 

Aries (March 21-April 19) Aries born in early April are probably wondering what the *&)(% as the Universe keeps demanding they break from their old patterns. All Rams will benefit now by taking time to bring more balance and harmony into the home and family department. 

Taurus (April 20-May 20) Taureans, particularly those of you born in early May, are learning powerful lessons about relationship. Don’t waste time with those who do not reciprocate. Pay attention to writing and communication now. Get to the point and avoid being scattered. Take care of car issues. 

Gemini (May 21-June 20) Venus, the Love Goddess, is in your sign! Single twins (oxymoron) should expect to get lucky! Your creativity will be high, so use it! On the more mundane front, take care of any loose ends pertaining to money. This includes any financial obligations you have with a partner. 

Cancer (June 21-July 21) Powerful forces are pushing you to change to change the way your present yourself to the world, and some of your most important relationships. Your life is transforming. Make a conscious effort to gain clarity about your top priorities. Fateful decisions now will open new roads to achievement and personal satisfaction. 

Leo (July 23-August 22) This is a good time to slow things down a little and regroup. Take care of your health and all matters of daily life. Jupiter will be in your sign soon enough, and you will want your wits about you. Many amazing things will be possible in the weeks to come. Conserve your energy. 

Virgo (August 23-September 22) This could be a highly fortuitous period for social interaction. Helpful people abound…so make sure you are making out their connecting to them. You may feel some nervous energy around finances. Just keep putting energy into progress there, and things will improve. 

Libra (September 23-October 22) Your outer world beckons now. Put energy into career goals. Let people see you are and what you are capable of. Don’t be lazy. Now is the time to stretch your wings. Don’t cling to old goals that haven’t materialized. Concentrate on the NEW. 

Scorpio (October 23-Novemeber 21) Saturn in Scorpio has probably become your BFF by now.  And that’s a good thing. You should have the energy and patience to remove obstacles and forge ahead. This month could be both pleasant and productive. 

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) Finish up old business and get ready to truly put the past behind you. It’s time. Sagittarians me be wondering about relationships, both business and personal, that are not quite tangible. My advice: connect with those whose interest in you is obvious. 

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) The challenge this month: how to make yourself happy, and please others at the same time. Frankly, if you are having anxiety about committing to things or people, it’s probably your “gut” telling to take a step backwards. 

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) Sometimes you just have to attend to the business at hand. If things aren’t flowing in your personal world, health, and your home environment,  it will affect your outer world eventually. Find your inner balance. 

Pisces (February 19-March 20) Use your inspiration and creative energy to manifest your own needs. Sounds simple, right? But if you are not being clear about your true needs and priorities, suddenly, it becomes impossible. Eyes wide open!

Astro Update: May 2014

Astro Update: May 2014

 May brings some steadiness back into the picture, after a wild and wooly April. But last month’s Solar and Lunar Eclipses and the Grand Cardinal Cross are still packing a punch.  This means we will continue to see fateful events unfold, both personally, and globally, at an accelerated pace. The Taurus Sun will help keep our feet on the ground, which is always a great idea during volatile years like 2014.  Jupiter and Saturn in harmony provide some forward momentum, which many of us could really use about now.  Take advantage of every moment of it, as June is Mercury Retrograde time again. Hey, it happens 3 times a year, so it you can’t fight it, join it! Just get a lot done in May and plan to chill a bit in June if possible, regarding big plans, decisions, and travel…if possible.

Venus, the planet of Love, goes into the Warrior Sign Aries mid-month, and starts picking fights with Mars, Uranus, and Pluto. This could throw some relationships onto the rocks, but only if they were already questionable. The current planetary vibrations are not making it easy for people to put up with limiting situations. Venus in Aries will likely pour some kerosene on the fire in any bad romances. But Venus in a fire sign is also sexy, exciting, and impulsive. That can’t be all bad, right? If bad relationship is on its way out, there could certainly be something a lot better ready to come in for a landing.

The Full Moon in Scorpio on May 14 lines up with watery and earthy planets, making it powerful, practical, and passionate. I have found that the Scorpio Full Moon always seems strongly related to manifesting love and/or money. So whether you need some cash or a new lover, try using this Full Moon as a manifestation stimulant. Financial and Real Estate matters should also benefit from this Moon. Mars finally goes direct May 19, and although it will be a slow process, agreements, alliances, negotiations, and relationships begin to improve and/or clarify. 

Opportunity Days: May 4, 9, 15, 16, 18, & 22

 

 Horoscopes for May 2013

For all the Sun Signs: Get the lead out and use this month to clear some pathways to progress. And get as much done at the beginning of the month as possible. Anything that’s not really ready for primetime will have to wait, as the beginning of June is already under Mercury Retrograde’s  spell. It’s always best to launch something new when Mercury is direct…so holding off on the important new stuff until the beginning of July would be best. 

If you took a big hit during the second half of April during the drama of the eclipses and the Grand Cardinal Cross, now you can start to regain your sense of equilibrium. Many people went through very intense situations and tough times last month. Some of it was sudden, crazy, and unpredictable. Some of it had been brewing for years and just reached critical mass. In any case,  it’s a good time to move forward, with understanding and awareness, as opposed to stewing about why challenging events happened. Powerful lessons are unfolding for all of us now. Best not to resist, but embrace the wisdom and turn it into strength. 

Aries (March 21-April 19) Aries individuals, particularly those born close to April 4, will be experiencing enormous pressure in many areas of life this month. Old structures are coming apart at the seams and new people, ideas, and opportunities parade before you, sometimes just out of reach. My suggestion? Let go and reach for them!!! You usually like a challenge, and this challenge is all about willingness to change.  

Taurus (April 20-May 20) You are very likely to find a calm place in the storm this month, which can give you time to think. But don’t just sit there! Take advantage of this mostly beneficial month to bring something you want and need into existence. Love it, own it, and make it so. There is plenty of fuel to get you where you need to go right now. The challenge? Knowing where that is! Don’t wait for other’s to give you permission. 

Gemini (May 21-June 20) If you can straighten out your emotions and get in tune with your own truth, you could be somewhat lucky with money and life direction now. I’m not talking about gambling and speculation. More like strategic planning and implementation regarding your income and resources. Your hunches could be right on about people, so take note. 

Cancer (June 21-July 21) Cancers born near July 4 are experiencing unprecedented changes, challenges, and opportunities. Hold tight, it’s going to get really interesting! All Cancers have the benefit of Jupiter supporting their hopes and dreams right now. Expand your horizons and think big. Just make sure you follow through. 

Leo (July 23-August 22) Keep an eye on your goals. Dodge some bullets and stretch a little this month and you will make headway in areas that may not have yielded much lately. Persistence pays off now. Thing are improving for you. Just keep your focus on what you want, and who you want to share it with. 

Virgo (August 23-September 22) Take advantage of opportunities now as they prove long-lasting and positive. Everything is set up for you to have a good time; just don’t shoot yourself in your own foot over finances. A middle-of-the-road approach to time, energy, and money will ensure your success this month. All or nothing at all is not the answer, for love or money. 

Libra (September 23-October 22) Peace and harmony may seem elusive at the moment. You might be frustrated about something or someone. Or maybe you’re downright hot under the collar. Expressing yourself clearly will do more good than stuffing it or blowing up. 

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) Watery and earthy influences awaken your inner spirit and bring you more insight about your physical body as well. Investigate new ways to improve your energy. Think about the push and pull of your relationships. Is there a way to create more balance? Time to get holistic and recalibrate your body, mind, spirit connection. 

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) Take it as a blessing if you are not right in the middle of some drama now. And if you are, take a giant step backwards! This is time for you to be peaceful and centered. Do things you love. Be around beauty. 

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) Even with the Cardinal Cross bearing down on you, this is a time of creative rejuvenation. Focus only on that which is essentially you. Don’t let yourself get side-tracked.  Stick to a plan and your PRIORITIES. Single Caps, love is in the air, if you have time…and if its not a “Bad Romance” as Lady Gaga would say.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)  This might not be the most exciting month on record, but count your blessings. You can keep a level head this month and troubleshoot things relating to home, family, and personal life. Try implementing a few things to make your daily life easier, clearer, and more streamlined. 

Pisces (February 19-March 20) Come out of the clouds and get in touch with your destiny. It’s calling you. Many positive vibrations are available to you now, but you still might be vacillating about what you really want. Get clear about that and watch things start to fall into place!

Astro Update: April 2014

Astro Update: April 2014

The month starts off with a bang, as the Sun in Aries lines up with unpredictable Uranus on April 2. This is rather explosive energy, so we might see some earthquake action (looks like we already did…I wrote this a month ago) or aggressive activities in the news. So, for the first week of this month, the element of “chance” is very high. Keep that in mind if you are trying to accomplish something that requires patience and stability, as those things may be harder to come by!

There’s a Total Lunar Eclipse on April 15 at 25 degrees Libra.Eclipses tend to stir up fateful events, so keep your eyes peeled.  Things happening now could have far-reaching effects in your life. Want to skew that in a good direction? Be conscious, aware, and responsible about your own decisions and reactions. If your birthday that falls near April 15, this will be a year of milestones and change for you. There’s a Solar Eclipse on April 29, 2014 at 8 degrees Taurus, so, once again, if your birthday falls near this date, get ready for a wild and eventful year! The Aries/Libra axis is about the individual vs the couple…for better or for worse. So relationship issues will be potent and telling this month, to be sure. 

The big news is the Grand Cardinal Cross, which hits its peak around April 22/23, 2014. Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto will be squaring off, pushing and pulling at the fabric of our collective reality. When planetary tension of this magnitude occurs, situations can reach “critical mass.” In a nutshell, sometimes, something’s gotta give, and during these planetary stress cycles, big problems that need resolution tend to surface. Use this to your advantage by taking time in this month to do some conscious self-evaluation and soul searching. Need to overhaul something major in your life right now? Do it voluntarily. April is not a good month to hide your head in the sand, even though you might feel like it. 

Astro-Opportunity Dates: April 11, 18, 24 and 25

 Horoscopes for April 2013

For all the Sun Signs: With the Lunar and Solar Eclipses and that Grand Cardinal Cross, my advice is, hold to a steady course. No need to hide in your closet until May. But you may wish to rethink recreational travel or any surgeries or medical procedures you have a choice about. April isn’t going to be a “calm” month, so keep a level head when making important decisions. 

Aries (March 21-April 19) If you were expecting this to be a boring birthday, think again! Super-charged energy is flowing all around you. What will you do with it? Embrace change, shed your old skin, and take a deep, deep breath. Movement and change is the order of the day. Stagnant patterns are shriveling up. Let them! Pay attention to your important relationships. If they are in flux, there’s a reason. 

Taurus (April 20-May 20) This changeful month may hold hidden benefits for you. Sitting on the sidelines may seem boring, but offers a good vantage point to plan future strategies. Follow your intuition and gather your strength and resources now. This will come in handy next month, when there will be more opportunity for action and growth. 

Gemini (May 21-June 20) Things may be a bit wild, but you are in a unique position to take advantage of the chaos! Follow your hunches; connect with others of like mind, and take some calculated risks. You may end up leading the pack in business. And your personal life may be starting to improve considerably as well. 

Cancer (June 21-July 21) Things may not seem rock solid in your life right now, but luck is on your side. Even with a few disruptions, you are still in a good position to accomplish goals, make friends, and influence people. So make sure you put energy into your outer world activities!

Leo (July 23-August 22) This month could get a little stressful, but if you keep your focus, you should get a lot done. Put energy into long rang plans. Maybe a little conservative risk taking at month’s end? The Universe may be asking you to walk your talk, and follow your own advice. Sounds like a good idea!

Virgo (August 23-September 22) Try not to stress about money. Keep things simple.  Less is more. Let projects that aren’t producing fall by the wayside in favor of that which seems the most promising. Tie off loose ends and weed out unsatisfying relationships, both personal and business. You’ll be glad you did. 

Libra (September 23-October 22) You are in an exciting phase, but it’s volatile, so watch your back. Changes in key relationships are in the works. You really need to know friend from foe, both personally and in business. Keep a cool head, you’ll need it, as decisions will be demanded of you. Find ways to blow off some steam if necessary…rather than blowing up at people. 

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)  This could end up being an oddly peaceful period for you, even if those around you are feeling a little nuts. Walk, breathe, relax. Take care of health issues that may have surfaced. If you need a break, a tune up, or just a spa day, take it!

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) So it’s a weird month, somebody’s gotta have some fun, right? Well, that could be you! Creative energy is flowing through you. Use if for something. Relationships are highlighted. Single centaurs could end up hooking up. 

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) Your chart is primed for action and activity. There may be a bit of controversy with home and family issues, but don’t let it sidetrack you. There is potential to make headway with your plans. Hey, there’s even some romance opportunity for single Caps…so don’t forget to be social!

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) This could actually turn in to a productive and even exciting month for you. Follow through on plans, express your ideas, and get out and meet people. Airy and fiery energies could kick start some new directions this month, but only if you are willing to try some new things. 

Pisces (February 19-March 20) A bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush…take a look at what is being offered, and who is offering it. There could be some solid developments regarding work and finances. But err on the side of reality, not wishful thinking, when making choices. Love is in the air, but the same advice applies.  

Astro Update: March 2014

Astro Update: March 2014

The Sun is in emotional, creative Pisces now.  Winter is ending, and Spring is on the way. Since 2014 is another “roller-coaster” of a year, it probably won’t surprise you when I say this will be a very eventful month. So, fasten your seat belts and get ready for the ride!

Mercury has been retrograde and in a pretty grumpy mood for a solid month, messing up our plans, our technology, and our connections with others. Of course, some good things probably came out of it, too. Connections with people from the past are often positive and illuminating during Mercury Retrograde cycles. But most of us feel a bit more “normal” when Mercury is direct.

And March starts off with Mercury direct! Now we can get ready to launch some new projects and step away from any tangles that happened during February. But tread cautiously, as there is a ton of energy that is flying every which way during the first week of March. Reserve plans for anything really big until after the Quarter Moon on the 8th.

So, what’s the big deal? Well, right after Mercury goes direct, Mars and Saturn go retrograde in close proximity to the New Moon in Pisces on March 1. Mars will be in Libra, giving us a chance to review many important lessons about our relationships over the next 9 weeks or so. Saturn in Scorpio turns retrograde, bringing another kind of review for many of us, regarding things we have been building and rebuilding over the last 2 years. There is an intensity factor here that will affect many people very strongly. If you are open to the lessons that will be unfolding, this could be a time of powerful insights and epiphanies. If you try to ignore important challenges that arise, you may get kicked in the fanny.

On a global level, with Mars retrograde in Libra and the rather intense Grand Cardinal Cross shaping up as April nears, we can expect some fireworks. Diplomacy will be hard to come by and aggression may rule the day in certain arenas. Probably not the best couple of months to travel to certain parts of the world…If you are wondering where not to go, just watch the news. It will be pretty obvious. They say the aggressor usually loses during Mars Retrograde, Guess we’ll see how that pans out. In your own life, be a peace-keeper, even if you don’t feel like it. It’s always better to be part of the solution, not part of the problem. 

When the Full Moon in Virgo arrives on Sunday March 16, things will be much clearer. This Full Moon looks like a good one for healing, creativity, and romance. Spring Equinox follows just a few days later on March 20. The Equinox is always a great time for renewal and inspiration. Plan to use this cool energy to drop outworn patterns and blocks and start on your path with renewed enthusiasm. For those who are ready for a relationship, this is a good time to put that intention out to the Universe! Same goes if you need to attract helpful partnership in business.

 

March Horoscopes

 

For all the Sun Signs: Keep your eyes wide open during the first week of March, with Mercury direct, Mars Retrograde, Saturn Retrograde and the New Moon in Pisces converging. Astro-Opportunity Days: March 8, 13, 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 28 29. Everyone will have a bit of an edge and a touch of luck on these days, so take advantage of it!

Aries (March 21-April 19) With your ruler Mars going retrograde this month, and the Sun in your Solar 12th House, it would be wise to cool your jets a bit and do some self-nurturing. Instead of blazing ahead, try diving into your center. A need for balance and harmony is high. And your intuition will serve you well if you get quiet enough to hear it, and heed the messages that come through. Body, Mind, Spirit alignment is in order.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) Connect with important friends and colleagues. Some of them may be willing to lend support that you need. But be selective about who you open up to. Saturn retrograde in Scorpio will start to bring up unsolved issues from the past. Don’t hide your head in the sand. Time to get into problem solving mode!

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) You will be taking a serious look at your life direction and career. And you’ll need to ask yourself how all of this fits in with your relationship goals…or does it? Time to make sense of your outer world and inner world needs.

Cancer (June 21 to July 21) If you have been putting things in their proper place in your life, you should be seeing some amazing developments now. If you need to work harder towards goals, go for it. Take advantage of the inspiration and energy that is available and move some mountains.

Leo (July 23-August 22)  Roll up your sleeves and tackle some of those things you’ve needed to take care of in your home. And if you feel at odds with emotional issues from the past, take some steps to process them, so you can move forward. Endings are as important as beginnings in many ways.

Virgo (August 23-September 22) There’s action in the romance and partnership department now, but much of what happens will depend on your own clarity and ability to determine fact from fiction. Use your knowledge of human nature when deciding who to connect with, both personally and in business. Opportunities abound, but caution is advised.

Libra (September 23-October 22 )  There is much potential to heal and restore your body at this time, and perhaps a need to do so! Libra, balance thyself! There will be very important lessons and messages regarding your significant relationships. Pay attention and read the memo!

Scorpio (October 23 to November 21) Work with your creativity and much will come of it now. Fight the impulse to retreat into your own world, as much can be accomplished now. Saturn retrograde in your sign will let you know if there are responsibilities that need attention. Best to attend to them voluntarily.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) Powerful motivations are stirring inside you regarding home, family, and the past. This is a time to reflect and connect to your priorities. Put things in place to give yourself more freedom in the coming months.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) You are learning about your connections to others. Don’t hide from it. Take a good look around you. There are new people who would like to get to know you, both socially and professionally. Go find them!

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) Money and career are highlighted now. Clear your head and get your game on. Positive financial dealings are in the offing. Improvement and opportunity in the work place is likely.

Pisces (February 19-March 20) This could be a magical month! Romantic, creative, and spiritual energy surrounds you. This is your chance to heal old wounds and get back in the saddle! Get inspired and put your best foot forward. The dawn is breaking. Get ready to move forward.
