Astrology trends for the week of July 6

Once a year, the Sun, the giver of life, and Pluto, the god of the dead, face off. This year, it happens on Monday, shortly before midday, when the Sun in Cancer moves into opposition to Pluto in Capricorn. Today is the day to decide where you want to be: You can make a stand, via Pluto, to change your life, or build a protective shell around you, via Cancer, and dig in to defend the status quo. If you like where you are, prepare to defend it; if you want to see change, get ready to work for the transformation.

Mercury in Gemini is quincunx to Saturn in Scorpio on Tuesday night. This aspect challenges you to get control of the disorder in your life, especially the mental clutter, without becoming rigid and inflexible. This is a fine line to walk: Following every flight of fancy means you will never be able to get anything done, but being too disciplinarian or refusing to embrace new ideas will lead to emotional difficulties for you, and perhaps even trigger others to plot against you. Keeping aware of others’ reactions will help you get the balance right.

Wednesday sees Mercury move into Cancer, the most emotional sign. Your thinking and communication for the next three weeks will be less rational and much more based on instinct and emotional response. You will be more sensitive to how others feel about you and more receptive to information from your environment. Your instinct will be strong, and you should try to listen to it. Operating from such an instinctual place can mean phobias come up. The challenge over the next three weeks will be to keep your irrational fears in check. Wednesday afternoon also brings us a trine between Mars in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces. This trine highlights the creative genius of Neptune. Your need to create will be very strong this evening and the results will be emotionally and spiritually powerful.

The Taurus Moon and Mercury in Cancer are sextile on Thursday evening, making it the perfect evening to chill with some friends. This aspect is not one in which you will be inclined to take on the world. Instead, you will likely want to hang out on the patio, with a bottle of wine and a sumptuous meal, watching the sun set, sharing good stories and good laughs. Relax and enjoy the evening. The world will take care of itself tonight.

The Taurus Moon features in another sextile on Friday night, this time with Mars in Cancer. This aspect emphasizes the slow-and-steady nature of Taurus’s influence. Mars provides the energy to Do, but it isn’t quick and flashy action required, here. Instead, this will be the constant and steady action of “making progress.” In other words, now is the time to launch into projects that will require sustained effort over time, not just the flurry of short term effort. Does the attic need sorting? Have you left a pile of Thank You letters undone since your last birthday? Is there a huge pile of mending in the corner that you just never get around to? These are the projects that will be most satisfying tonight.

The Taurus Moon and Jupiter in Leo square off on Saturday morning. Taurus’s tendency for laziness is going to run afoul of Leo’s need to play it Big, resulting in the possibility of you looking for the easy way out of an obligation by throwing money at it. Trust me, you can’t afford that right now. The path of least resistance, in this case, is to actually put the work in yourself. It will take time and effort, but you can do it. And knowing you did it yourself will be an additional reward.

Another square, this time between the Sun in Cancer and Uranus in Aries, makes for some uncomfortable moments on Sunday night. Under this aspect, you will want to take any risk to see your plans set into motion, but you might not be up to the emotional strain that might cause. Try to think things through before rushing in so you are prepared for the risks. Better yet, find someone you can depend on, someone you already know has your back, to help you through the rough spots.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Astrology trends for the week of June 29

A Monday morning trine of Venus in Leo and Uranus in Aries spells an interesting shift in your love life. If you’ve felt yourself to be stuck in a romantic rut, this is the week to break out. When Venus and Uranus play nice together, your romantic side is always brought forward. Leo and Aries added to the mix means the rewards go to the risk takers: If an unconventional romance has been tempting you, now is the time to go for it.

Last week, I wrote about Chiron moving Retrograde for the next six months, pushing us to deal with the emotional baggage we are carrying. I hope you paid attention: On Tuesday afternoon, Jupiter in Leo is quincunx to Chiron in Pisces, challenging you to address the emotional wounds that hold you back from achieving happiness. What is it that keeps you from speaking up in a crowd? What makes you feel that you can’t step into the spotlight and thrive? If you can face these fears, you will be rewarded with new confidence and the ability to move towards success. If you don’t, the Retrograde maverick will find a way to force you to do so, and the lesson will likely be more painful.

Wednesday is a busy one, astrologically speaking. First, Venus and Jupiter pair up in Leo, enhancing our sense of love, both personally and for the word at large. Venus in Leo heightens our feelings of affection and ups our generosity. This aspect will encourage you to show this generosity in big and unique ways. This is a good day to teach someone about something for which you have a passion. This aspect is also good for finances and travel. Wednesday evening, the Sun, the Moon, and Neptune all move into positive aspects in regard to each other. First, the Sun in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces are trine, encouraging you to find creative outlets for self-expression. Later, the Capricorn Moon and Neptune are sextile, further pushing your creative energies, as well as highlighting your spirituality. Finally, the Sun and the Moon move into opposition around 10:20pm, bringing us the Full Moon in Capricorn. For the past two or three weeks, Neptune has been like static electricity: an annoying fuzzy energy that made clear thinking nearly impossible. This evening, as it moves into a more balanced position with the Moon and Sun, the haziness lifts, and the positive side of Neptune’s influence will more easily be felt: Your intuition and sensitivity will be high, your compassion will be readily at hand, and your creative and artistic energies can easily be tapped into.

Thursday is another day in which taking risks can pay off: Mercury in Gemini moves sextile to Uranus in Aries, this afternoon. Your quick and inventive mind will lead you to new ideas and these, put into action, are likely to be to your benefit. Remember, though, that Gemini’s knowledge is often only skin-deep: As much as you’d like to be independent and go it alone, know what know and what you don’t. Either do the research thoroughly yourself, or call in the needed resources to manifest your ideas the right way to ensure long term success.

Chiron is back again, making you face some painful truths, on Friday morning when this Celestial Shaman squares off against Mercury in Gemini. Your emotional baggage is going to function as a major distraction today, having you second guessing yourself or avoiding making decisions altogether. Until you address the emotional chaos in your life, you aren’t likely to be able to successfully think your way out of a wet paper bag. Get to it, as Mercury will give you the opportunity for reward when it moves sextile to Jupiter in Leo later in the evening. Jupiter is the planet of good fortune and reward; if you have worked through the emotional disorder, quick-thinking Mercury will see you through to the riches, both materially and emotionally, that Jupiter has to offer.

The Aquarius Moon and Uranus in Aries are sextile on Saturday evening, stirring our rebellious nature and, once more, calling for our inner risk taker to lead the charge. Tonight, we need to let the world know what unique individuals we are and that we are ready to embrace change: If you are ready to embrace the future, the new, or the unique, the change you bring about promises to be beneficial.

Sunday is likely to be a cheerful day, as Mercury in Gemini is sextile to Venus in Leo. This aspect leave you lighthearted and affectionate. You will be fascinated by the world at large and ready to learn of new and exciting things. Today would be a good one to go to a museum or the library to simply give yourself the enjoyment of discovery. Or, cuddle up with a good book or film and allow yourself to be transported to a place you’ve never yet been. Today, the journey truly is the reward, if you’re willing to explore.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Astrology trends for the week of June 22

Monday morning brings a trine of Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries that will have you eager to embrace the unexpected, the unusual, and the unique. If you’ve got an idea for an invention, today is the day to get busy on the prototype. This aspect will be especially good for innovation in science and technology, but will favor any risk-takers as well as those who seek to create for the benefit of humanity.

Tuesday afternoon, Mercury in Gemini squares off against Neptune in Pisces, making your opinions as changeable as a chameleon’s skin. This vacillating energy will be further enhanced by Mars in Gemini moving quincunx to Saturn in Scorpio shortly after. Your ever-changing mind may make it look as though you are talking out of both sides of your face, changing your opinion to whatever may be most profitable to you at the moment. You are allowed to change your mind, but make it clear that you have done so. To do otherwise may have you being accused of being scheming or manipulative when others compare notes about their discussions with you.

Early Wednesday morning, Chiron turns Retrograde for the next six months. Chiron presses us to heal ourselves, and this energy is not negated during its Retrograde periods. During this time, though, Chiron’s shamanistic messages take on a new urgency, forcing you to deal with your emotional and spiritual wounds now. Expect old hurts to be dragged from your subconsciousto be faced with some immediacy. You can try to ignore Chiron’s lesson, but, during this Retrograde period, the lessons will repeat the until you truly learn from them. Facing these issues now will help you to be emotionally healed and free of baggage, ready for a fresh start when Chiron again goes Direct on November 28th.

Wednesday also sees Mars moving into Cancer for the next six weeks. Cancer is a very emotional sign, but those emotions tend to be kept deeply under wraps while we are under its influence. While Mars, the planet that spurs us to action, is under the sway of Cancer, we can find it very difficult to find our “get up and go.” Even the way we approach confrontation or difficulties can take a crab-walking sideways motion. During this time, you will be best served by not rushing straight at the opposition. Wear down your adversaries like the waves, slowly and over time. On the bright side, under Cancer’s influence, you will enjoy a broad view of things and will be able to produce powerful, highly emotional work.

The Libra Moon is sextile to Venus in Leo on Thursday afternoon. Now is a great time to shower your loved one with the attention they deserve. Send your love a bouquet of roses or a romantic note, “just because.” Make a sumptuous meal to share with the special person or people in your life. If you are solo right now, lavish yourself by spending some time surrounded with beauty.

Friday will be a good day to get things done, as a trine between the Scorpio Moon and Mars in Cancer have your energy levels high and intense emotions will be a driving force. This aspect encourages you to get projects underway, but both Scorpio and Cancer speak to your emotions: Your most successful projects will be those that stir your passions and stoke your creative fires with intensity.

Another trine on Saturday morning, this time between the Scorpio Moon and Neptune in Pisces will keep you focused on your creativity. Your imagination will be enhanced by this trine and your artistic side will be pushing to come out.

Sunday will see you restless and looking for change. You will again have to watch your tendency to change your opinion with the shifting of the winds, as well as your desire to have two of everything. Lust for life is a lovely thing, but if you don’t check these urges, your restlessness could lead to trouble. Try to not rush into things just to feel like you are doing something, without thinking through the consequences of your actions. Giving in to your restlessness will, indeed, result in changes in your life; just be sure these are changes you actually want.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Eight ways to celebrate the summer solstice alone or with others

Sunday, June 21st, brings us the Summer Solstice, marking the day with the longest daylight and the shortest night here in the Northern Hemisphere. It is a turning point in the cycle of the year, the day to celebrate the powers of light over those of darkness. To agrarian cultures, it marked the break between the hard work of sowing the fields and the hard work of harvesting the crops, a pause to acknowledge the miraculous transformation the Sun brings about in those seedlings of life itself.

You don't have to be part of an ancient farming community to celebrate the Solstice. There are many ways to observe the day right where you are, with companions or by yourself.

- You can start Saturday night. Many farming cultures used a Solstice Eve bonfire to “purify” their animals, village members, and the town itself, keeping all safe from disease and illness. After lighting your backyard fire, make a list (or create physical representations of) the things and habits that damage your health, both physically and mentally, or put you in harm’s way. Throw these things onto the fire and release them from your life.

-The Solstice is a celebration of the Sun. The simplest observance you can make is to arise early and watch the sunrise. As the highest edge of the sun breaks the horizon, take a moment to meditate on or pray for the areas of growth you would like to see in your life during the coming season.

-Skinny dipping in some quiet and sun-filled glen would be a perfect way to bring about Solstice purification. For city-dwellers, a trip to the beach in our bathing suits may work just as well. As you enter the water, visualize negativity, ill health, and stress being carried away by the cleansing waters. Or, if the weather prevents an outdoor dip, a ritual bath, perhaps with a piece of selenite or some purifying bath salts, might be in order.

-Spend some time working in your garden: Be conscious of the effect that the sun had on your plants and all life on Earth. Some traditional observances involved pouring a libation, or even just water, onto the ground as an acknowledgment of the gifts the Sun brings to us. So make sure to give your plants a good drink of water before finishing your work.

-The Summer Solstice is the traditional day to harvest healing herbs, as it is believed that doing so on this day enhanced their properties. These herbs include sage, lavender, yarrow, hyssop, verbena, and St John’s Wort. Other herbs were traditionally thrown on the Solstice bonfire, enhancing the experience with their aroma. You can add these herbs to your own Solstice fire: chamomile, peppermint, thyme, chervil, basil, and rosemary.

-The Summer Solstice also celebrates fertility. Many European villages would select a Midsummer bride, who in turn selected a groom. The rituals vary, but the bride and groom represented sexual activity and harmony in nature and society. This fertile couple’s purpose was to make the crops grow and the flowers bloom. Sunday would be a very good day to find a snuggle partner and harmonize together.

-Some traditional observances involved looking through a wreath at the bonfire, or floating a wreath of flowers in water, revealing a vision of a maiden’s future mate. If you find yourself single (and don’t wish to be), today might be a good one for a first date, allow a friend to fix you up, or perhaps the right time to fill out an e-dating profile. Who knows what the Solstice might bring you?

-Most traditional observances involved gathering with friends and family and enjoying a feast, dancing, and general merriment. A Saturday evening around a fire with hotdogs and s’mores or a Sunday afternoon cookout with a gathering of loved ones would be a proper Solstice activity.

Whatever Solstice observances you take part in, make sure they are a celebration of what the Sun brings to us: Life!

Astrology trends for the week of June 15

The week starts on a great note Monday morning, when the Gemini Moon is sextile to Venus in Leo. You energy level is high and you are eager to communicate with the world. Venus is shining her spotlight on you, helping to draw people to you and your causes.

Venus will make things a bit more difficult for you on Tuesday morning, when she is quincunx to Neptune in Pisces. With Neptune Retrograde, the strong temptation will be to withdraw into a completely self-indulgent, self-pitying place. Doing so will only make things worse, causing harm to relationships, or even pushing you to indulge in dangerous escapist behavior like alcohol or drug addiction. If you can keep your head in the game, Tuesday will be a great day for creative or artistic endeavors. A little later in the morning, the Moon and Mars pair up in Gemini, and an hour after that, just after 10am, the New Moon occurs in Gemini. The interaction of Mars, the Moon, and the Sun, all in Gemini, means your energy level, particularly your mental energy, will be extremely high, and you will be in the frame of mind to really kick your projects into high gear. As with all New Moons, now is the time to begin your projects for this Moon Cycle. Those projects will be most successful if they involve travel, new ideas, or writing. The next two weeks will be a powerful growth period. Be sure to take advantage of it!

A trine of the Cancer Moon and Neptune in Pisces on Wednesday will again stir your creative impulses. With the Moon moving into home-centric Cancer, your tendency will be to focus on artistic projects that will enhance your home. Today is a good day to redecorate the living room or paint a mural on the kitchen wall. As Neptune is still Retrograde, this is also a great time to show some gratitude to those who have taken care of you: Take Mom to dinner; bake cookies for the neighbor who feeds your dog when you are out of town, send a thank you card to an attentive nurse during your last illness. Show some appreciation for those who have labored for you and asked nothing in return.

Expect unpleasant surprises on Thursday, when the Cancer Moon squares off against Uranus in Aries. With Cancer in the mix, the surprise is likely to involve the home front: A fight with a housemate or an unexpected home repair may arise and Aries will make you want to rush in and order people around until all is better. Your blunt and brusque manner won’t help. Try to know what is within your abilities, and let a repairman do the job when it is beyond your skills. Make sure you keep an open mind and open ears when dealing with your housemates: You really don’t know what is best for everyone and, even if you’re sure you do, it’s their life to live- let them.

Friday sees a trine between the Cancer Moon and Saturn in Scorpio. During this time, your report card would say, “Plays well with others.” You understand what motivates the people around you, and you are able to diplomatically get them to work together for a common goal. If there have been lingering problems that require group cooperation to resolve, this is the day to tackle them.

If you’ve been bored with your love life lately, buckle up: Saturday sees the Moon and Venus move into conjunction in Leo. Get ready for some Drama with a capital D. On the positive side, you are feeling wonderfully affectionate, and people are really drawn to you. If you’re in the market for a new snuggle honey, today has the potential for success in that area. Leo can also push us to be self-indulgent, demanding, and emotionally overwrought. If you give in to this demanding side of Leo, you could damage existing relationships or lead yourself to emotional turmoil. Try to resist the dark side and instead shower affection on your loved ones, indulge in a sumptuous meal, or take in a show, leaving the drama on stage where it belongs.

Sunday is the Summer Solstice, marking the longest day of the year as well as the Sun’s entrance into Cancer. While the Sun is in the sign of the Crab, you will be much more home-oriented. Security and loyalty become important ideas. While the Sun is in Cancer, you feel things very deeply, but keep these emotions hidden under a stony exterior. You will likely find that you seek out emotional support more from trusted loved ones during this time. Sunday evening brings Venus in Leo quincunx to Pluto in Capricorn. Once more, you will be challenged to keep Leo’s love of drama in check. Failing to do so will result in the end of some relationships. Your sexual desires will be strong, but entering into a relationship built on nothing but sex could cause you great harm. Try to find more constructive outlets for your passionate nature today and skip the booty call.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Astrology trends for the week of June 8

The week starts off bursting with intellectual energy. On Monday, the Sun in Gemini is sextile to Jupiter in Leo, creating a great opportunity to lead a brainstorming session with your team. With extravagant Leo involved, some of the ideas will likely seem undoable and over-the-top. That’s okay: The point is to allow everyone to dream big; you can sort out what is actually feasible later.

Tuesday will be a better day for deciding what your resources will actually allow you to get done. Mars in Gemini will be sextile to Uranus in Aries, keeping the mental energy high, but more practical and discerning. Aries’ influence will help strengthen your initiative, but watch out for Gemini’s tendency to get distracted from the task at hand.

Wednesday brings the Sun sextile to Uranus, once more heightening your strengths as a leader and helping to get your team to put these new ideas into motion. The early half of the week will be the most productive, so be sure to seize the opportunity.

The Universe has some good news for you Thursday: Mercury finally goes Direct, after three weeks of Retrograde motion. It will take time to fully recover, but communications, technology, and travel will now start to return to normal. That's good, because things are about to get a little bit difficult. Thursday evening, Mars in Gemini is square to Chiron in Pisces. This aspect will make you eager to be doing, but insecurities from your past are likely to make you afraid to step out and take the risk of putting your ideas into motion. In matters of the heart, this aspect can make you want to head for the nearest exit as soon as things get at all difficult. Until you deal with your own baggage, you are going to find it very difficult to see anything through.

On Friday morning, Neptune goes Retrograde for five months. When Neptune is Retrograde, it does not alter the subjective, mysterious energy of this planet’s influence. It does, however, turn that energy even more inward. It will be very easy to find yourself lost in your own thoughts. Getting recognition for your contributions can be challenging during this time. On the other hand, this five month period can actually be a very good time for those who generally work outside of the spotlight for the common good, such as teachers, nurses, and counselors.

Shortly before noon Saturday, the Taurus Moon is trine to Pluto in Capricorn. This aspect indicates that change is coming, which will be for your ultimate good. Taurus’ stubborn streak, though, means that you need to believe the change is of your own making. Trust that this change will benefit your material wellbeing and your sense of security.

Sunday, Mars and the Sun meet up for a once-every-two-years conjunction, this time in Gemini. There will be mental energy to spare, and the new ideas will be flying. Try keeping a journal handy to jot some of these concepts down. But, also, be careful: This is a hypermasculine pair-up and manly chest-thumping could be a distraction. Try to funnel that masculinity into hard work and setting out on new (intellectual) adventures. Sunday evening sees Saturn move into the last two degrees of Scorpio, where it will remain until September 17th. While it is in this position, the focus will be on working toward forgiveness. It is time to let go of grudges you’ve been holding, and work towards the resolution you need to do so. Also, if you know you’ve wronged another, you need to work to earn their forgiveness. Even if you feel you are the wronged party, it is now your responsibility to work to find constructive solutions to bring people back together.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Astrology trends for the week of June 1

The week starts with a Monday morning trine of the Scorpio Moon and Venus in Cancer. This trine can serve to reignite the home fires. After making a commitment to one another, it can be easy to get caught up in the rigors of daily living, allowing the love and passion that brought you together in the first place to dim a bit. Monday will work as a strong reminder of why you chose to be together in the first place. Don’t miss this opportunity to get reacquainted with your honey!

Tuesday brings us the Full Moon in Sagittarius shortly after noon. Projects begun at the beginning of this month’s Moon Cycle should be coming to fruition now. Be aware this will be a trickier Full Moon than usual. Neptune in Pisces has been hanging around for the past week or so, making clear thinking very difficult. On Tuesday morning, the Sagittarius Moon squares off with Neptune. The Sagittarius Moon has the tendency to make us extremely optimistic, often a good thing, but squaring Neptune means that our optimism can turn into denial when it comes to honestly assessing the challenges in front of us. It is much easier to pretend they aren’t there until we are blindsided by a painful crisis. Facing the challenges as they come up will be much more productive and must less difficult.

The Sagittarius Moon will be quincunx to Venus in Cancer Wednesday evening, making it a difficult night for romance. Your mercenary side will likely try to rule your heart. You’re on the prowl for someone who you think will bring you riches and indulge your expensive tastes. This is going to result in disappointment. Resist the lure of riches and instead listen to what your heart really needs. If your heart doesn’t respond, then you won’t be happy, no matter how big the bank account is.

On Thursday afternoon, the useful side of Neptune in Pisces finally comes to help you do some thinking outside the box. This afternoon, the Capricorn Moon will be sextile to Neptune in Pisces. This aspect powers up your imagination and creativity. Capricorn, ever organized and practical, will funnel this creative impulse into whatever business is at hand. This afternoon is an extremely good one to do some brainstorming for unique solutions to your lingering problems or difficult tasks.

Shortly before noon on Friday, Venus leaves home-oriented Cancer for big, showy, and dramatic Leo, where, thanks to a Retrograde next month, it will remain until October. Leo seeks drama always, and this will be true of your love life for the next several months. You will demand loyalty from your lovers, requiring plenty of proof of their devotion. You will feel extravagantly affectionate and your charm will make it easy for you to attract the warm regard of others. Your generosity towards friends and loved ones can go to extremes, once you are assured of their dedication to you, and you will be willing to make great sacrifice for their happiness. When Venus is in this position, you may find you have a tendency to be self-indulgent and pleasure seeking. Also, Leo’s love of drama can make your love life a bit of a roller coaster ride, with both giddy highs and stomach-lurching lows.

Friday evening will offer a pair of aspects that will challenge your character, but could result in a dramatic payoff. First, the Sun in Gemini is quincunx to Pluto in Capricorn. This aspect reminds you that hanging on to things beyond their usefulness only bogs you down. It can be difficult to let go of things you once held dear, be it worn material possessions, relationships that have turned toxic, or patterns that have become destructive. Even these things you know are bad for you can become something like a security blanket. But they are keeping you from embracing the new. If you are able to keep an open mind and let go of the past, opportunity awaits. Shortly after, Mars in Gemini is sextile to Jupiter in Leo. If you have done what was asked of you by the Sun and Pluto, you will be ready to grab the reigns and lead your troops. Your confidence is catching, and your optimism and will power will be strong, priming you for your leadership role.

A trine between Venus in Leo and Saturn in Sagittarius on Saturday morning will put you in the frame of mind to happily devote your energies to your loved ones. A little TLC from you today will bring you praise, love, and devotion in the future when you need it.

Sunday offers us another trine, this one between the Aquarius Moon and Mars in Gemini, and it will act as a double shot of adrenaline. You are fired up and ready to get your projects underway. You’ve felt like you’ve been held back for too long and you now want to prove you are a free person, with things to do. Just remember, Mercury is still Retrograde for a few more days, so it is best to hold off actually launching your projects until after the 11th. For now, plan, lay groundwork, and prepare for launch!

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Astrology trends for the week of May 25

Neptune in Aries is going to cause some trouble for you this week, starting on Monday, when it squares off with Mars in Gemini. Hidden dangers, or enemies who portrayed themselves as your friends, will be revealed under this aspect. Your desire will be to pretend you didn’t notice the dark shadow lurking and pretend all is well. To do so will only make matters worse. Admit there is an issue and keep your attention focused on it to better protect yourself.

On Tuesday, the Virgo Moon is sextile to Venus in Cancer. This aspect will have you whistling while you work, as long as the work revolves around home and hearth. Today, you will be happiest in service to those you consider family or in organizing your home space.

Mercury and Mars move into conjunction in Gemini on Wednesday morning, bringing an optimistic outlook and the charm and impetus to get things done.. You will be in the right frame of mind to let things get under way andnot get bogged down in details. In the afternoon, as Venus in Cancer is trine to Chiron in Pisces, it will be easy, for once, to let your guard down and deal with the emotional pain you’ve been burying under your ever-chipper façade. It can be hard to let people in to help you heal the wounds, but it is necessary, and this afternoon is the time to do it! Find a trusted friend or family member and pour out your heart!

Thursday evening brings a trine between the Libra Moon and Mars in Gemini, spurring you to restore balance to your relationships or social life. Your communication skills will be strong, this evening. It is a good evening for a tête-a-tête with a partner, if you’ve been feeling out of step with each other. Or, if work has been taking up more of your life than it should, step away from the cubicle, and call some friends for drinks and stimulating conversation. Even your work will benefit from some time spent in social pursuits.

Neptune returns to muddy the waters on Friday morning, when it squares off with Mercury in Gemini. Mercury is Retrograde now, already making clear communication a difficult task. This square is guaranteed to make things worse: You are likely to not be listening very carefully or only hearing what you want to hear. The result is that you are very likely to become victim of a deception. You may even be the one deceiving yourself, refusing to see the obvious catch. Resist the urge to commit to anything without serious contemplation and a second opinion (or two). Know that you are not thinking clearly and are not likely making sound decisions. A better use of your time would be meditation, catching up on sleep, or even indulging in an artistic hobby.

Saturday offers an island of clear thinking in the haze of the Neptune-dominated week. The Sun and Mercury pair up in Gemini this afternoon, bringing an objective drive to your thinking. Neptune’s influence, this week, may have had you doubting your own mind. This aspect reminds you that, when you know your own mind, it is best to stick to your guns.

That moment of clarity is brief, as Sunday morning brings yet another Neptune square, this time to the Sun in Gemini. This aspect blurs the line between what is real and what is imagined. You are more likely today than any other day to let your imagination run away with itself, for good or for bad: You are just as likely to see a situation as far better than it is as you are to imagine the worst case scenario and impending doom. The truth is likely somewhere in between. Today is another day to just admit you aren’t going to be the best judge of anything. Leave making commitments to another day when your critical eye is seeing closer to 20/20.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Astrology trends for the week of May 18

The most significant event of the week occurs on Monday, when Mercury ceases its forward motion to move Retrograde until June 11th. This Retrograde occurs in Gemini, the sign of thought and communication on a personal level. You can expect difficulties and breakdowns in communication, technology, and travel. You can expect these disruptions to occur especially in areas pertaining to your interactions with siblings and other family members, neighbors, and friends online. Allow yourself extra time for travel during the Retrograde (and don’t forget those roadside assistance membership cards at home). If you must sign a contract during this time, double and triple check the fine print, then ask for a second opinion before you check it again. Finally, be especially careful of interactions on social networking sites during this Retrograde period: Remember, it is very difficult to discern meaning on the internet. Things taken out of context can cause a great deal of hurt feelings or resentment. Think twice about how your postings may be received and before starting a flame war with your online acquaintances.

A pair of sextile planets on Tuesday will have you eager to move ahead and ready to embrace change. First, the Gemini Moon is sextile to Jupiter in Leo. This aspect has you restless for positive action and ready to embrace whatever the week asks of you. You will feel like the world is yours for the taking. Early in the afternoon, the Moon is sextile to Uranus in Aries, making you eager to be the change you want to see: You know the future always brings change and you know just where you’d like to end up. Now is the time to set things in motion to bring about your desired future.

You will face with some roadblocks on Wednesday, in the form of the Cancer Moon quincunx to Saturn in Sagittarius. You can decide that you don’t have the abilities or resources to work your way around these obstacles, or you can decide that a road block is really just a detour: Patiently approach the problem, look for loyal allies to offer a helping hand, and you are likely to find your way through just fine. You may even find that your detour was actually the scenic route and, ultimately, a more satisfying journey.

The Sun enters Gemini on Thursday morning and this will bring you a new burst of intellectual energy. Curiosity and the pursuit of new ideas will become much more of a focus during the next four weeks. You will find yourself enjoying enhanced communication skills and will be even more charming than usual, making a new breadth of acquaintances. Your mind will be energetic and active, and you will more easily grasp new concepts. This energy, however, can give you a tendency for restlessness and you may easily get bored. It can also be difficult to focus on finishing tasks and reaching your goals: Running off to the next new thing is just so appealing! This also can mean that you won't be likely to dig deeply into any newly found topic of interest. The depth of knowledge you gather this month is going to tend toward the superficial. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing: The idea, this month, is to expose yourself to a wide range of new things, things you may never have even known existed. Next month, under Cancer’s influence, when your interests turn inward and your desires bring you closer to home, you can choose, from these newly discovered treasures, which ones you’d like to dig into deeper. Until that time, enjoy your explorations!

Pluto will offer you some challenges Thursday. Pluto in Capricorn is quincunx to Jupiter in Leo this morning. If you don’t strictly move by your moral compass, scheming and exploitation will be the result. Being true to your ideals will keep you on the right path and may even open up a new opportunity. To do otherwise will bring you to (or maybe even beyond) the edge of disaster. Thursday night, Pluto moves into opposition with Venus in Cancer. This face off spells the end of any relationship that hasn’t been contributing your long-term material security. Be careful of entering a relationship that is built on little more than sexual attraction, as this will lead to difficulties in the long run.

The Sun and Saturn in Sagittarius move into their once a year face-off on Friday. While the Sun in Gemini has you wanting to meet the world full speed ahead, Saturn’s opposition will force you to slow down, as many obstacles, redirections, and difficulties are guaranteed to arise. Many of the difficulties you will face are likely to come from authority figures, and may have to do with restricting your sense of personal freedom in the form of unavoidable responsibilities. Address each of the obstacles that come your way in the next few days with the wisdom you have learned through past troubles and a willingness to play by the rules asked of you, and you will find your way through. The effect of this annual face-off will last for a few days, but know that the consequences of any actions taken or decisions made during this time will have long-lasting consequences. Make sure you think everything through to avoid regrets.

The Leo Moon and Mars in Gemini are sextile on Saturday morning, making you want to get your show on the road with as much fanfare as possible. Certainly, you will have the energy, optimism, and resourcefulness to do just that. The effects of the Sun/Saturn face-off are still in full effect, so you must make sure you have done all of the prep work needed to ensure success.

Sunday brings a trine between the Leo Moon and Uranus in Aries, reinforcing the desire to stir up your world by setting your ideas into action. Luck will be on your side today and your intuition will be strong. You will be ready to embrace the changes a bright future can bring.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Astrology trends for the week of May 11

The week starts with a change of sign for Mars. Monday night, Mars leaves slow and steady Taurus for the quick energy of Gemini, where it will remain for the next 6 weeks. Gemini pushes Mars to be about energetic activity of the mind: You will want to be out and about seeking new concepts and experiences. Your mind will be able to quickly take in new information and synthesize it into new ideas, arriving at conclusions in a flash. However, while Mars is in Gemini you may find it very difficult to maintain your focus on a single goal for any length of time. During this time, you will also be more likely to vacillate and second-guess yourself. Now is an excellent time to explore new things and experiment. When Mars moves out of Gemini in a month and a half, you will find yourself more able to apply yourself and dig deeper into projects that require more sustained and concentrated effort.

Tuesday will be all about the creative work. A morning trine between the Pisces Moon and Venus in Cancer will have you wanting to retreat from the harsh world by throwing yourself into an artistic project, perhaps one that has to do with decorating your home. In the afternoon, the Moon moves into conjunction with Neptune in Pisces. This is not an aspect that will have you thinking especially clearly- your worldview will definitely have a rose-colored tint. Don’t commit yourself to anything long term or binding today. Instead, this is a great time for meditation and other spiritual pursuits, or to involve yourself in artistic or creative endeavors.

Early Wednesday, the Pisces Moon is sextile to Pluto in Capricorn. This aspect may give you the opportunity to turn your artistic hobby into a money maker or to advance your career through some creative thinking.

A trine of the Aries Moon and Saturn in Sagittarius on Thursday morning will put you in the best frame of mind to get to work on thorny problems that have been holding you back. The challenge while Saturn is in Sagittarius is to keep to your tasks through all of the difficulties that hold you back (and there will be difficulties). The Aries Moon gives you the energy to come at the obstacles standing in your way from a new perspective and to thoroughly deal with them. Your sticktoitiveness will be what brings you to the pay off in the end.

Friday comes in like a speed bump, or a whole parking lot full of them, in the form of a once a year face-off between Mars in Gemini and Saturn in Sagittarius. Mars will want you to go full speed ahead, but Saturn has other ideas and has placed many obstacles in your path. As with speed bumps, though, if you hit them too fast or too hard, you are risking a wreck, or at least a painful jolt. If you slow down and hit them with caution and a delicate touch, you can more easily work your way through.

A trine of Venus in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces on Saturday invites you to explore your own inner depths. When Venus is in Cancer, there is a wealth of hidden emotion underneath your shell of reserve. If you’ve felt that your creative work has lately lacked direction or impact, now is the time to peel back the protective layers to expose your inner self. Your work as well as your spirit will benefit.

Another trine comes on Sunday morning, this time between the Taurus Moon and Pluto in Capricorn. This aspect may indicate that now is the time to put together a plan to combine your strong work ethic and good ability at handling money together to change your life for the better. This could be as simple as taking advantage of your employer’s 401K plan or as daring as launching your own business. As long as it is an investment in your future security, you should do well. One warning, though: The New Moon in Taurus occurs just after midnight on Monday morning. This is traditionally the best time to launch projects. The face-off between Mars and Saturn that occurred on Friday is still in effect. To make best use of this New Moon, you will do better to spend this time making plans and devising strategies.

Mercury will be going Retrograde on Monday. You can expect obstacles to crop up in any project started now. If the start of a project can be delayed, you can use this retrograde period to make plans, research things relevant to your project, reassess where you want to go, or even use this as a rest period before you get yourself truly in action. If you must start your projects during this time, they are not doomed to failure, but you should expect many obstacles and for things to not always go as you planned. Patience and perseverance will help see you through.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Astrology trends for the week of May 4

Monday will be just a bit too much, as the Sun in Taurus squares off with Jupiter in Leo. While Taurus usually is happiest getting down to work, Leo views this work as a reason to go over the top in a big way. This aspect is going to bring out your most extravagant and spendthrift tendencies, and this Big Show isn’t going to be about getting any actual work done. Bear in mind, this isn’t exactly the best way to start your work week. Your best bet would be to resist Leo’s bigger-than-life pull, or at least funnel it into something productive, like a show-stopping sales presentation.

You are likely to get in your own way on Tuesday afternoon when the Moon and Saturn move into conjunction in Sagittarius. Here, your perfectionist side is in high gear, and no matter how well the job at hand was done, you are going to find fault and find more to do. There is a point when you are going to have to call the project done and let it go. No matter what you do you are in for an anxious night, when the Moon moves into opposition to Mercury in Gemini. Your opinions will be changing at a frenetic rate and each change will come with the certainty you are wrong. Tonight isn’t the night to make any lasting commitments, or take on any task that requires you to decide on one course of action. In fact, you’d be better to take a run or some other intensive physical activity that will help you burn off some of the excess nervous energy you have. Leave the decision-making to another day.

Wednesday will be much better, as the Sun in Taurus is trine to Pluto in Capricorn. This earthy trine is a positive sign of change: Pluto has been in a tension-filled square dance with Uranus over the past three years. Since March, Pluto has moved into friendlier territory, forming positive trines with Jupiter. This trine with the Sun further strengthens your self-confidence, especially as you are taking in new ideas, and highlights your ability to steadily work towards your career and family goals.

Venus moves into the domestically-minded sign of Cancer on Thursday evening. While Venus was in Gemini, emotional ties were unattractive. Now, until June 5th, the idea of being loved becomes much more of your focus. Cancer’s influence will have you feeling much more romantic, more emotionally sensitive, and generally more focused on those you love. Your security, emotional, physical, and financial, will also become more of a motivation for your actions. If you fall in love under Cancer’s influence, it will only be if you feel sure your partner will contribute to your future material well-being.

A trine of the Capricorn Moon and the Sun in Taurus makes for a pleasant close of the work week on Friday evening. You can be sure that your diligent and steady work this week did not go unnoticed and you can head home for the weekend sure that you did your part to provide for a stable and happy home. Now, enjoy your well-deserved break!

Be careful of schemers and scammers on Saturday afternoon, as Mercury in Gemini squares off with Neptune in Pisces. I could warn you that if it seems too good to be true, it probably isn’t, but you won’t be thinking clearly enough to realize the deal is too good. And, if you decide that you should be the one running the scam, think again. This aspect will have you wanting to pull the wool over someone’s eyes, but your knowledge isn’t likely to go deep enough to pull it off. You’ll do best to stick to the straight and narrow and not give into temptation, no matter how good the deal seems.

Sunday is Mother’s Day, and Venus entering Cancer this week has put you in a family frame of mind. When Venus is quincunx to Saturn in Sagittarius today, you have the perfect opportunity to show Mom (or those who act as mother in your life) how much they mean to you. Today, though, don’t be surprised if it doesn’t seem there is a huge outpouring of appreciation for your efforts: You aren’t doing this to make Mom show how much she loves you. You are doing it to show how much you love her. To expect some sort of reciprocal display defeats the purpose. And don’t worry, your efforts are very much appreciated.

Take warning: On Sunday, Mercury enters its storm period prior to going Retrograde on May 18th. As Mercury slows, you will notice more and more difficulty in the areas it governs (communications, technology, travel). The storm period is not a good time to begin projects. Instead, use this time to finalize things that are already on your plate. Pay special attention to those things that need to be taken care of that are ruled by Mercury: Get those bills and letters out early. Any important communications should be finished now. Any car repairs that you’ve been delaying should be addressed immediately. And definitely check those tire pressures and fluid levels. If you’ve let your computer’s security software lapse, it’s time to update. Make sure all important electronics are on surge protectors. Be prepared and get these things taken care of now, or they will demand your attention when Mercury has gone Retrograde.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Beltane without the maypole

There has been a definite turn in the weather and the chill of winter seems to, finally, be fading. Days are longer and the warmth of the nurturing sun is returning.

This Friday is Beltane, a holiday which, to ancient Celts, signaled the beginning of summer. It marked the beginning of the growing season and was the date when cattle were driven to their summer fields. The rituals surrounding Beltane generally focused on celebrating fertility and providing protection for people and animals. The most well-known Beltane rituals involve the maypole as a celebration of fertility.

Chances are you don’t have a maypole in your yard. But there are other ways you can celebrate the season:

1: Light a fire! Before driving their cattle to summer pasture, Celtic farmers would light huge bonfires and run the animals around them, believing that the flames would protect them from harm over the coming months. In your own celebrations, a backyard fire symbolizes the sun, with its nurturing warmth and light.

2: Release your guilt and bad luck. Part of ancient Beltane celebrations would be to appoint a scapegoat (also called the Fool) that would receive the bad luck of all the villagers. The scapegoat would then leap over the flames of a fire to banish bad luck from the village for the year. For your own observance, write down all of the instances for which you are carrying guilt or in which you felt plagued by bad luck. Then, throw the paper into the fire while visualizing the guilt and bad luck going up in flames. If you aren’t able to burn the paper, shred it into tiny pieces and release them to the four winds, sending your ill luck and guilt with them.

3: Think yellow. In traditional Beltane celebrations, yellow flowers represented both the sun and the flames of the bonfire. Houses were strewn with yellow flowers, bringing protection and prosperity to the home. Festoon your home with yellow flowers, especially daffodils and forsythia, to welcome the season of the sun.

4: Get out and grow! What better way to celebrate the growing season than actually get out there and be part of it. This is the time to dig into your garden and plant. If the overnight temperatures are still too low for tender annuals, now is a great time to start seeds in an indoor seedling tray. Outdoors, you can still prepare the bed so it is ready when the seedlings are big enough and the temperatures are right. It is also a great time to plant summer- and fall-blooming bulbs.

5: Throw a party. No celebration is complete without a gathering of friends and good food and drink. A backyard barbeque would be the perfect way to celebrate the longer days and warmer nights. Make sure to decorate with plenty of flowers. Fruits and breads are foods associated with fertility and would be appropriate for your feast.

6: Adopt a friend. Animals were an important part of a Beltane celebration. Inviting a cat or dog (or any other companion animal) to join your family would be in keeping with the spirit of the season.

7: Light your own fire! Observance of Beltane often involved appointing a couple to represent the Mother Goddess and her companion; their physical joining represented the sowing of the crops and the successful mating of farm animals. As Beltane festivities continued through the night, many couples slipped away to enjoy their own physical encounters, in the spirit of the night. This night is a good one to reignite your own sexual fires and, symbolically at least, join in the fertility rites of the celebration.

There are more than 5 kinds of spirit animal

If you judged only by the t-shirts and tattoos you see, you might think that five creatures that can be spirit or totem animals. A spirit animal is one that comes to you, either in the real world or in dreams, bringing a message of qualities you rely on or that you need more of in your life. An animal may be your personal totem if it is one that plays a constant role in your life. It may stay with you through a period when you particularly need its messages and energies, or it may be with you for your entire life.

The most common spirit animals seem to be eagles (clarity, intuition), butterflies (joy, change, a free spirit), wolves (family, guidance, self-confidence), bears (strength, leadership, introspection), and crows (intelligence, resourcefulness, loyalty), but there's no reason to limit yourself to the most popular or best known ones. Here are a few other possibilities and the messages they can bring to you:

Spider is the spinner of webs and represents interconnectedness. When Spider comes to you, she wants to remind you that your life is connected to that of all other living things. She weaves together your past and the future, as well as your spiritual and material existence. She reminds you of the wisdom you have gained through experiences as well as the lessons learned from your family.

Rabbit is often the low rung on the food chain, and survives by maintaining a careful understanding of his environment and its dangers. When Rabbit comes to you, he often is encouraging you to face your fears, especially in a well-planned, non-violent way. Rabbit also represents industriousness and adaptability, as well as fertility.

Ladybugs are creatures of transformation and metamorphosis. These creatures are exceptionally adaptable, able to withstand much that life throws its ways. Ladybug often arrives as your life is entering a period of major transition, representing the end of one phase of your life so that you can enter a new one.

Dolphins one of the most social-minded animals, help us break down emotional barriers so that we can love as well as be loved. They open the doors to communication. Dolphins also remind us not to take ourselves too seriously and to keep a spirit of playfulness.

Sharks are extremely focused and driven toward achieving their goals, and can bring this energy to your life. Sharks appearing to you can indicate that you’ve been dealing with emotional extremes and need to sort through your feelings. It can also mean that you’ve been using fear and intimidation to work through problems and may need to try a different tactic. They can also remind you to be protective of your loved ones and they can help you to dispel your irrational fears.

Penguins move between the terrestrial world and the world of the sea with ease. They can help you to move between the spiritual and material worlds, as well as find balance between your masculine and feminine sides. Penguins also represent fatherhood, adherence to social etiquette, and confidence.

Bees are extremely productive creatures and much of life on earth is dependent on them to pollinate plants and crops, thus creating one of the basic building blocks of our food chain. They are, therefore, associated with fertility and productivity, as well as the confidence to strike out on one’s own for the good of your community. The also represent the magic of transformation, changing pollen into honey, as well as flowers. Bees remind us of the importance of things that, at first glance, seem insignificant.

Coyote is known as the Trickster of the animal world. They remind us to laugh at ourselves and to learn from our mistakes. Unlike wolves, coyotes form informal packs, coming together and moving apart as needs change. They remind us to both be flexible as well as to ask others for assistance when we need it.

Deer move with gentleness and grace through a world that can sometimes be hostile. They represent openheartedness, alertness and serenity in the face of adversity. They also remind us that sometimes it is best to not be seen, to camouflage ourselves in our environment. They remind us to listen keenly, and to hear even that which is not being said. Deer also represent leadership through gentle guidance, instead of force.

Cardinals help us to recognize our own self-worth and our importance to the world at large. They are present in our environment throughout the year and encourage us to constantly reassess ourselves and the role we play in others’ lives. Cardinals are excellent parents and remind us of our responsibilities to our loved ones. They also represent the renewal of vitality and help us seek opportunity around us at all times. Further, they encourage us to bring color to our lives.

I'm not denying that eagles, butterflies, wolves, bears, and crows have valid messages to bring to people. But there is a wide world worth of animals that have important things to tell you and can bring powerful energy to your life. Even mosquitoes have a message- don't lose your focus on little annoyances or give your power to inconsequential things. Keep your options open and you may be pleasantly surprised.

Astrology trends for the week of April 27

You know that dream you have where you show up for what you think is the first day of class but, when the class starts, you realize that everyone is there to take the final exam and you are completely unprepared? You are going to feel like that on Monday morning, when the Leo Moon squares off with Mercury in Taurus. Chances are that your ego told you that you had it all covered, but you’re going to realize that there was more prep work you should have done to feel truly ready to tackle today’s projects. This is going to make for some anxious moments. You know there is no way you are going to be able to fake your way through this. You won’t want to, but if you are willing to accept input and help from others, you will be able to work your way through.

Tuesday will be a better day, with a productive trine between the Virgo Moon and the Sun in Taurus give you both the organization and the steady energy needed to work towards your goals. You’ll even feel happy while doing it! And your diligent work is going to be noticed: Tackling the Honey Do list will make for a happier home, while your efforts at work may line you up for a promotion.

Shortly after midnight on Wednesday, Venus in Gemini squares off with Chiron in Pisces. This aspect spells some difficult lessons from your love life: If you’ve felt tied down by a heavy, overly emotional relationship, you are going to chafe even more to be free from romantic encumbrances. On the other hand, if you’ve given little thought to your heart while you pursue other interests, you may suddenly feel your emotional isolation. Whatever your situation, this aspect is likely to make you confront the way in which your worldly interests and romantic needs clash. Chiron, ever the teacher and healer, will eventually help you find the balance, but today may have you feeling some heartache.

Mercury enters Gemini for an extended stay on Thursday evening. Gemini is a talkative sign, so get ready for the pace of communication to speed up to short and detailed bursts, though these details may tend to be a bit superficial. Gemini generally has no patience for long, involved, or deep investigations. You will find a tendency for your opinions to change quickly and the focus will be on what is new or trendy. You will also find multitasking much easier than usual. You will have a burning curiosity to know about everything, just, perhaps, not an in-depth knowledge of everything. Unfortunately, while Mercury is in Gemini, attention spans can be short and it can be difficult to stick with one thing for any length of time. Mercury will go Retrograde on May 18th, extending its stay in Gemini until it finally enters Cancer on July 8th.

Friday is Beltane, a celebration which marks the beginning of summer, celebrating fertility and the growing season. This morning, we see the Libra Moon quincunx to the Sun in Taurus. Here is your opportunity to weed out those things that bring you inner turmoil or make your actions self-defeating. This is the season of creation- if you can find inner harmony, this season will be very productive for you. In the afternoon, the Moon will be sextile to Jupiter in Leo, creating a celebratory mood to enjoy the spirit of May Day.

A trine of the Libra Moon and Venus in Gemini on Saturday morning puts you in a lighthearted and affectionate mood. Gemini’s influence makes this not a day for lovers but, instead, a great day to gather a group of friends to hit a gallery, take in a movie, or just enjoy an afternoon in the outdoors. The world is a beautiful place, and you will be ready to embrace it!

Sunday morning starts on a difficult note, with Mercury in Gemini in opposition to Saturn in Sagittarius. You’re likely to want to embrace the trendy, the easy, the fun, bouncing from one entertainment to the next. Saturn has other plans for you: When Saturn is in Sagittarius, it’s all about the long haul. You are going to have to persevere and persist in order to reach your goals. Flying from one shiny object to the next just won’t cut it. Today, the pull of these two very opposite drives will be strong. Try to find a middle ground between rigidly sticking to the task at hand and flitting like a butterfly from one pretty flower to the next. Shortly before midnight Sunday night, we reach the Full Moon in Scorpio. Projects started at the beginning of this Moon Cycle should be coming to fruition. Now is the time to bring forward any unresolved issues. Scorpio’s influence will be particularly useful here, as the Scorpio Moon can help you rise above obstacles. A fly in the ointment, though, comes in the form of a square between the Moon and Jupiter in Leo shortly after midnight on Monday morning. Here, the intensity of Scorpio and the bigger-than-life nature of Leo really come as too much of a good thing. With Jupiter’s involvement, surprises are guaranteed, for good or for bad. This could come in the form of a once in a lifetime opportunity or it could instead mean the floor drops out from under you. Your survival will depend on restraint. Try to not throw yourself all-in to any turn of events. Good luck can suddenly turn to bad, just as disaster can actually turn into a life-changing opportunity. Restraint will see you through difficulties if your good luck should sour as well as keep you from giving up when faced with trouble and missing the opportunity to rebound.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Astrology trends for the week of April 20

Monday starts with a shift in energy as the Sun moves out of brilliant, dynamic Aries into the slower, steadier sign of Taurus. While the Sun is in Taurus, your physical energy becomes about steadily working toward long term goals: long-lasting, more plodding, relentless, and dependable. This focus and energy can make us rigid, dogmatic, or overly stubborn, so try to watch yourself when you deal with others. The good news is that Taurus also tends to make us slow to anger and a bit cautious in our approach to new things. You won't be likely to rush headlong into foolish projects and, when starting anything new, you are likely to insist on being fully prepared. Projects you take on this month will be most successful if they are about securing material wealth and comfort.

You might want to delay the start of your day on Tuesday: Shortly after midnight, Mercury in Taurus squares off with Jupiter in Leo. You will be feeling very sure of yourself and won’t listen to anyone who tries to warn you off. This combination is likely to result in some errors in judgment that will expose you to public scandal or ridicule. If you must work with others Tuesday morning, try to keep your ears open, your head down, and your ego in check. By late afternoon, a trine between Mars in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn will have that self-confidence working in your favor. If you’ve navigated the morning’s troubled waters with your reputation intact, now is the time to put your ideas out there, as others will be ready to respond to them and the outcome will be beneficial.

Be prepared but flexible on Wednesday. A morning trine between Mercury in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn will demand that you have your ducks in row but will also ensure that things are going to change as you progress. Today is the day to highlight your versatility and ability to think on your feet; those who matter will take note. Early in the afternoon, Venus in Gemini will be sextile to Jupiter in Leo, allowing you to dazzle those around you with your knowledge and experience in a broad range of topics. Your wit and flair for communication will be highlighted in the evening when Mercury and Mars pair up in Taurus. This is an excellent evening to work on a novel or write a speech. Taurus’s influence can make us a bit shy in front of an audience, so if you do have to give a presentation to a group this evening, try to imagine that you are speaking to just one trusted friend, and your talent as a wordsmith, this evening, will carry you through.

Perseverance is the word of the day Thursday, as the Sun in Taurus is quincunx to Saturn in Sagittarius. There will be obstacles, and if you allow them to make you feel defeated or inadequate, you will suffer disappointment. But, if you let that steady Taurus drive push you to work through those problems, you are guaranteed success, ultimately.

Have you put your foot in your mouth lately? Are you haunted by something you said, or failed to say, that has caused emotional damage to you or someone else? Mercury in Taurus and Chiron in Pisces will be sextile on Friday evening, giving you the chance to address those emotional scars caused by poorly thought out words, as well as any lingering guilt or shame you might have from failing to heed others’ advice, getting you into trouble. Communication is always key, but if it has gotten you into emotional hot water in the past, now is the time to repair the damage done. If the damage can’t be repaired, it will be good to know where you stand as, later in the evening, Venus in Gemini will be quincunx to Pluto in Capricorn. This is an ideal time to break from a dysfunctional relationship. This aspect often brings reversals in love and broken attachments. Therefore, it is an ill-advised time to enter a romance (one started now will bring great sex, but it will also bring great problems). But, if it’s time get out, this aspect improves the odds that you will land on your feet or bounce back quickly.

A trine between the Leo Moon and Saturn in Sagittarius on Saturday afternoon makes this an excellent day for creative problem-solving and working through any issues that have been holding you back. Your best approach should be to take an open-minded view of the issue, but also don’t neglect the wisdom you have learned through tackling similar problems in the past.

Sunday evening, Venus will be sextile to Uranus in Aries. If your love life has been stuck in a rut, this aspect can help you break out of it. This isn’t the evening for heartfelt discussions. Instead it is time to bring back the fun to your love life through creativity. Now is the time to enact a fantasy or two to reignite those romantic fires; don’t play it safe, for once.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Astrology trends for the week of April 13

It’s going to be a rough Monday, the kind that makes you wish Sunday had lasted another 24 hours, as the Aquarius Moon and Jupiter in Leo move into opposition. You are likely to have fantasies of organizing your troops and taking the work week by storm, all with dazzling style and flourish. The truth is you are more likely to lose a few hours staring out the window and resenting anyone who tries to get you focused on the task at hand. Be careful, too, of any financial decisions required of you today. They aren’t likely to be very sound ones.

On Tuesday, Mercury leaves fast-paced Aries for a three week stay in the slower, steadier sign of Taurus. You will find that communications, commerce, and travel slow from the flurried pace they had while in Aries. They do not come to a halt but they move at a more measured pace. You will be in the frame of mind to thoroughly prepare yourself for any undertaking. You will be much less likely to make snap judgments or pronouncements but will instead weigh any possible consequences to your words and deeds. Stability will be the guiding ideology of this three week period. This steadiness and stability can be taken too far. Be careful of becoming rigid or too sure of your own opinions. While Mercury is in Aries, we have a tendency to undervalue input from others and may find ourselves repeating our own opinions forcefully, just to make sure others get the point. This can make for awkward social interactions and you may find yourself happier spending time alone. The upside is that your abilities with money will be strong during this time.

Venus in Gemini and Saturn in Sagittarius are in opposition on Wednesday. This will be a difficult day for your relationships. Saturn, here, requires hard work from you to make any relationship succeed, and Venus in Gemini stresses your need to not be tied down by heavy emotional commitments. In other words, under this aspect, you just aren’t likely to put in the effort to work through a relationship’s difficulties. It is certainly not a good day to start a romance. Instead of pursuing love, you’d be better to spend the day indulging in more solitary interests.

Shortly before midnight on Thursday evening, Pluto goes Retrograde, remaining there until September 25th. Pluto is the planet of endings that clears the way for new beginnings and brings major transformations to your life. While it is Retrograde, closure and fresh starts can seem difficult to come by: Projects you thought you had put to bed will now need more work; problems you thought you had settled will require more attention. You can end up feeling like you are living the plot of Groundhog Day. As this is happening, however, you can take a closer look at the patterns of your life to assess those things that are no longer useful to you and get rid of them. If you can excise those things that have become dead weight, you will truly be ready for your fresh start when Pluto begins to move forward again in the fall.

Friday evening, Mars in Taurus and Jupiter in Leo square off, and it isn’t a pretty sight. This aspect brings out the worst of the stubbornness of Taurus, exacerbated by the over-the-top extravagance of Leo. You are likely to charge in to just about everything and then thrash your way through, regardless of the consequences. This is a night where quiet pursuits by yourself may serve you better in the long run.

Saturday will bring you a much needed shot of positive energy, as we reach the New Moon in Aries around midday. As with all New Moons, this is the best time to launch projects for this Moon Cycle. Aries, however, is the sign of impetus, new starts, and fresh energy. An Aries Moon make us more energetic, optimistic, enterprising, and open to change. This two week period is one of the most opportune for starting a new business, bringing a new product or discovery to market, or starting a new relationship.

Sunday is the day to take on creative projects, as two aspects will have your artistic and creative abilities working overtime. First, Mercury in Taurus moves sextile to Neptune in Pisces. This aspect heightens your creativity and imagination, as well as giving you the steady energy to put the work in to see the project through. A few hours later, Venus in Gemini is sextile to Neptune. Again, this aspect strengthens imagination and artistic vision, but here, you will be most productive if you seek input from another, helping to focus that vision toward creative genius.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Astrology trends for the week of April 6

The week starts out on a great note: Monday morning, a trine between Mercury in Aries and Jupiter in Leo has you optimistic and ready to jump into your work on full throttle: Your intelligence has never shone brighter and you will know just what to say to motivate your coworkers. You'd be wise to motivate one of thems to keep track of the finer details, as your focus will be on the forest, not the trees.

When Mercury and Pluto square off on Tuesday evening, things may get a bit uncomfortable, as anxiety and nervous tension rule the evening. You are likely to want to hurl yourself into doing something, anything, to relieve this restlessness, but this could be dangerous. You are not likely to be thinking logically and, if you rush into things without fully considering your actions, the consequences will be long-lasting and are likely to be dire. It's better to do nothing than do something ill-advised.

Wednesday opens with a meeting of Mercury and Uranus in Aries. This conjunction highlights scientific thinking and invention. If you’ve had an idea rattling around in the gears of your mind, this morning is the time to head to the workshop to try to bring it into reality. Just before 1pm, Jupiter finally goes Direct after five months of Retrograde motion. Jupiter is the planet that rules luck, health, joy, abundance, and opportunity. With Jupiter finally moving forward, you will find good luck comes easier, your confidence improves, and material wealth begins to flow abundantly; you will be more likely to enjoy "Good Fortune.”

You are likely to feel this change of fortune immediately, as, early Thursday morning, a trine of Jupiter and the Sagittarius Moon shines its light on your business and leadership ability. Thursday will be a very good day for you to step up to take the reins of your work team; a profitable outcome is likely.

Friday, at midnight, the Sun and Mercury are in conjunction in Aries. This pairing will provide you with a high-energy boost and enhance your intelligence. This is an excellent day to launch a project or business venture.

Venus leaves slow and steady Taurus for a four week stay in the sign of Gemini. Freedom and diversity will become a driving force in your emotional life. Your attitude towards romance will be lighthearted, but not enduring. You are not likely to make any long term commitments in your love life as the idea of heavy emotions and monogamy sound like anchors that would weigh you down to the point of drowning. You will have wide ranging interests and your romances will not be the center of your life, which may make you come off as a bit cool emotionally. That said, you will feel flirtatious with everyone, but it will be of little consequence to your heart. You are happier to surround yourself with friends that lovers now. One thing to be careful of: This lighthearted mood is likely to have you a little too free with your money and, if you aren’t able to rein this in, leave you broke.

Sunday brings Mars in Taurus sextile to Neptune in Pisces. This aspect is excellent for digging into creative and imaginative projects: Your energy will be suited to sustained and determined work, and your mind will be that of the dreamer and visionary, the perfect combination for sitting down to write that book or creating that painting you’ve been thinking about, but couldn’t find the time or energy for.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Astrology trends for the week of March 30

Change is coming to your love life Monday morning, when Venus in Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn. If you’ve been in a passionless relationship, this trine represents a great time to stoke your fires again, either in your current relationship or with a new lover. You might find that shaking things up in your sex life stirs things up for you in other areas of your life. Spring is here and it’s time for you to step into the earthy passions of the season.

Monday also sees Mercury changing signs, entering Aries at 9:44 pm. This sign will lend an aggressiveness and a brilliance to your intelligence, and impatience will be a common feeling. Over the next two weeks, you will tend to put too little planning behind your actions, and this will leave you without a safety net if trouble arises. Good thing you will be quick thinking and will find it easy to talk fast, if needed. We all tend to speak first and think later while under the influence of Mercury in Aries. You will find yourself more prone to exaggerations and your humor will be much more ironic and sarcastic; be careful, now, as giving offense will be very easy during this time.

Tuesday brings us another planetary change of sign, as Mars enters Taurus, where it will remain for the next 6 weeks. This influence brings us a very focused energy, allowing us to put our shoulder into it and work persistently and determinedly towards what we want. During this time, we'll likely focus on material gains and a sense of financial security. Taurus’s influence here can also be seen to bring out our stubborn side. This can be a good thing in that it will see us through those difficult obstacles blocking our path to success, but it can also mean that we have a hard time seeing others’ points of view. Try to not be so dogged in your pursuit of your goals that you trample over your friends and loved ones.

April Fool’s Day may be perfect or very difficult this year, depending on your point of view. The Virgo Moon and Neptune in Pisces will be in opposition. This is an aspect that gives a dreamy, non-focused nature to our thinking. It leaves us susceptible to schemers and delusions- just the frame of mind to fall prey to any April Fool’s chicanery. Don't take advantage of others' lack of focus and take any pranks too far today. Virgo’s influence will make it hard for some to swallow their pride and laugh at their own naiveté. Taken too far, the holiday’s “harmless fun” may leave some lasting damage to your relationships.

Thursday should be a productive day. The morning brings us a trine of Mercury and Saturn in Sagittarius, lending a disciplined, well-organized approach to your work. Your ability to persevere and find practical solutions to obstacles will be enhanced as well. An early afternoon trine of the Sun in Aries and Jupiter in Leo will give you a needed jolt of energy and a desire to put yourself in the middle of the action. This is a great time to lead your team in a motivational meeting or conference call.

Midday on Friday the Libra Moon will be sextile to Saturn in Sagittarius. This aspect lends itself to creative problem solving, especially where the problem involves members of your team that have not been working well together. Your diplomacy can help them find the heart of their conflict and redirect their energies so that they are no longer working at cross purposes.

Saturday morning brings us the Full Moon in Libra and a total lunar eclipse that will be visible in the western US and along the Pacific Rim. As with all Full Moons, the projects that we started at the beginning of this Moon Cycle should be coming to fruition. However, by mid-morning, Pluto moves into the picture and squares off with the Libra Moon. Be prepared for the unexpected. Surprises may threaten your sense of security and overly emotional responses will only make things more difficult.

Pluto is still in the picture on Sunday, when it squares off with the Sun in Aries. This aspect can bring out some of the uglier sides of our personality (aggression, selfishness, aloofness) and this, coupled with the potential destructiveness that Pluto can bring, could be a volatile combination as families are gathering for holiday celebrations. It would be best to focus on the celebratory and regenerative aspects of these holiday gatherings and leave the issues of family politics and frictions to another day.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Astrology trends for the week of March 23

The week starts with changes coming in the area of your job or responsibilities. A trine between the Taurus Moon and Pluto in Capricorn means that your work ethic and determination have not gone unnoticed. A promotion or beneficial change in circumstances will be the reward.

Tuesday will be a good day to indulge in art therapy or other creative avenue to work through lingering emotional issues. Early morning brings the Taurus Moon sextile to Neptune in Pisces, upping your creativity, but this creative urge will need direction to be productive. Mercury and Chiron pair up in Pisces later in the morning, giving you just the focus you need: Your ability to think or communicate clearly has been impacted by emotional baggage and fear of being hurt again. Using art will help you express these issues and work them out in a way that will let you move on.

A trine between the Sun in Aries and Saturn in Sagittarius on Wednesday afternoon makes this the perfect day to launch a project that will take organization, energy, and prolonged effort. The involvement of Sagittarius encourages you to take the long view when it comes to the success of this project. There will be tricky details or obstacles to work through along the way. If you are willing to put in the effort, you will be successful.

Thursday will be a good day to tackle some of those thornier details, when the Gemini Moon is sextile to Mars in Aries. This aspect emphasizes your resourcefulness and versatility, as well as your ability to get others to respond to your ideas. This is a powerful combination for getting things done.

Friday evening, Venus in Taurus and Jupiter in Leo square off. This aspect will have you desiring to overindulge in just about anything- food, drink, sex, even shopping. Sensual extravagance will be the sirens’ song. Giving in to this urge to overwhelm your senses will have negative consequences, especially for your relationships. Moderation in all things should be your plan today.

A trine of the Cancer Moon and Mercury in Pisces on Saturday evening will grant you the gift of the silver tongue: Your deep sympathy for others will let you know just what to say to entertain, as well as to win any debate this evening.

Another trine between the Leo Moon and Saturn in Sagittarius will heighten your ability to work through problems. Your diplomacy will help you to make others see, not only are they not the problem, but they are a major part of the solution to any issues that arise.

I hope this helps you have a great week!

Astrology trends for the week of March 16

Since June of 2012, Pluto and Uranus have been battling things out, in the form of seven squares. These face-offs have driven home the point that we have a need for change, both in terms of global governance as well as within the scope of your own life. The previous periods in which Pluto and Uranus squared off like this was in the 1930s and the 1960s- periods that resulted in dramatic social change. The good news is that, on Monday, we will see the final of the seven squares from these hulking, disruptive planets. Pay attention to the parts of your life that are problematic today. These areas will be the first to feel the sea change or the ones in which you most need the fresh start. Even better, these two planets will not repeat their disruptive dance until the 2040s.

Speaking of changes, Venus changes sign on Tuesday when it enters Taurus. Many people think of Taurus as a plodding influence, but let’s think of it now as unflappable. Its influence on Venus will leave you feeling more affectionate and romantic, but you will notice that you are likely to be slow to fall in love. Feeling, not logic, will lead you to love now. The same will be true when it comes to friendship during this time, as well. Be warned: Love found under Taurus’s influence can be all-consuming and can become smothering. Sometimes, “unflappable” can mean “doesn’t know when to stop.”

Pairings in Pisces will dominate the skies on Wednesday. First up is an early morning meet up of Mercury and Neptune. Pay attention to your dreams this morning, as this pairing will strongly increase your intuition and connection to the spirit world. If you are awake for it, you will find it is a great time for creative thinking and artistic endeavors. Three hours later, at 7:44, the Pisces Moon moves into conjunction with Neptune. This pairing will leave you feeling like the world is a little too much for your heightened sensibilities; the desire for seclusion will be very strong. If you do find yourself with others, their problems are likely to become your problems, and your thinking will become clouded or indecisive. Finally, around 9:30, the Moon and Mercury pair up, highlighting your imagination and intelligence. Overall, today is a good one to focus on creative projects or creative problem solving, but not one for working with many others.

Thursday morning, the Pisces Moon is quincunx to Jupiter in Leo. Here’s the choice you will face today: You may feel the pull to slack off and give in to laziness. Trust me, it will be noticed and the negative impact will be financial. If you resist this temptation, you will find it a promising day, both for your outlook and for your pocketbook. So, eat a good breakfast, load up on caffeine if you need it, and take care of your business.

Friday is the Spring Equinox, and, for some, this will be a very significant day. On tap for today is the New Moon, a Supermoon and a total solar eclipse (sadly, only visible from the north Atlantic), as well as the Sun entering Aries. As usual, the New Moon is the perfect time to launch new projects. Eclipses tend to be markers of significant change, for good or for bad, but this one is fairly mild for most. For those with birthdays around March 20th, however, this eclipse could indicate a major turning point in your life. Reinforcing the idea of change is the Sun, as it enters Aries this evening. Aries will bring courage and a restlessness to your life. This is a time of new beginnings and you will feel the push to jump right into the center of the action. This month, you will feel audacious as well as more impulsive. Aries can also bring out your pushy side, especially if you perceive someone to be standing in your way. Aries also can bring out your generosity, especially in offering help to others. Overall, you will feel much more open to change and new experiences.

Venus in Taurus is quincunx to Saturn in Sagittarius shortly after sunrise on Saturday. This aspect is all about partnerships, particularly business ones. You should choose partners carefully as you will be in it for the long haul. A good choice will work with you through the difficult work ahead and the reward will be lasting. A bad one will abandon you and the work will be all yours to tackle. Another quincunx a little later, this time between Mercury in Pisces and Jupiter in Leo, will challenge you to make use of your good judgment and intuition. Failure to do so will result in scandal or gossip.

Sunday evening, Mercury will be sextile to Pluto in Capricorn. Be open-minded and flexible, as things are likely to be changing around you. Events may even require a change in opinion that you didn’t see coming, bone that will affect your entire worldview.

I hope this helps you have a great week!
