STARGAZER MARCH HOROSCOPES:

april2-copy

ARIES: A work project comes complete around the 12th. Your attention returns to more personal matters and finances. From the 11th a transit of Mars through the area of self worth and personal resources (through April 18) will push your attention towards earnings. Follow inspirational hunches on the 27th. Your creative imagination shines. Relationships or feelings of self worth (one is perhaps influencing the other?) get a bit distorted as Venus retrogrades on the 4th. From the 25th you feel a stronger sense of orientation, although it won’t be until the end of next month that all comes together for you personally. Intense vibrations on the 2nd and 30th signal unfinished business in a relationship that was stimulated towards the end of last year. Someone pushes you towards the finish line in a professional undertaking at the end of the month. You can make yourself clear on the 29th. A New Moon in your sign on the 27th sets the stage for progress and success.

TAURUS: The Full Moon in your house of true romance sends exciting vibrations on the 12th, coupled with Mars in your sign from the 11th there are some powerhouse energies on hand making you desire love and personal expression. This is a period in which you’ll want to go after your desires wholeheartedly. Venus retrograde from the 4th, however, could muddy the waters. There is unfinished business to attend to, potentially in regard to a financial matter that will require resolution next month. Also, as your ruling planet, you’ll be a bit hedonistic without the full force of Venus smoothing your edges. A work or health matter could come to dramatic culmination on the 2nd. Professionally you gain a significant insight. There can be much reassessment of developments that came up at the end of last year. Friends are a source of pleasure and inspiration on the 27th. Take someone out to something arty, you’ll have a great time!

june2-copy

GEMINI: The Full Moon on the 12th signals closure within a domestic matter. You may be at odds with a partner, and there could be a tough atmosphere in which this ending occurs. Mutually, a relationship could be getting more serious and there are adjustments being made in light of a commitment. Not so good for making decisions of the heart, meanwhile, is during the Venus retrograde cycle beginning on the 3rd. This month at least there are favorable overtones as colleagues from the past reemerge. You’ll need to balance business with pleasure as a spotlight shines on you professionally and you continue to enjoy favor and an escalated public profile. Dialogue begins around your professional direction on the 6th is very important for the next 4 months. From the 10th, you journey inwards as you bring the events and actions taken since mid May 2015 to completion and begin a process of endings and closure. This can be a process of psychological release. Meditation or therapy may be beneficial for you.

july2-copy

CANCER: Venus retrogrades on the 4th, and what felt like an imminent career breakthrough may feel as though it has slipped through your fingers. You’ll get there in time, something needs to be reworked and you may need to enroll in a class or program or reconfigure your marketing strategy in order to get there. Mars in Taurus from the 11th takes some of the edge off. You’ll seek out company and social experiences that put you in touch with your dreams. Domestic life is a source of possible tension, and events around the home have a somewhat destabilizing quality at this time. These storylines emerged at the end of last year and continue to seek resolution. You can’t push too hard right now, or the seams will burst! From mid month, you are on the lookout for ways to achieve your professional goals. Illuminating insights on the 25th and 26th will help you adjust your course appropriately, and you can set a plan into motion on the 29th with the full awareness it will take until at least the first week of May to see it all fall into line. A New Moon on the 27th points you in the right direction.

aug2-copy

LEO: Long range objectives and your profession are the focus of most of your energy and attention for the next several months, though the cooperation or resources you require to reach your objectives will need to be sought after, perhaps in distant places or with people from other cultures. Look for clues for the direction you might take around the New Moon on the 27th, with full awareness that it might not be until May that you get on that road. Working alone right now is your best bet, and you can accomplish a great deal in the early part of April, (the 6th, specifically). Otherwise there seems to be a stop and start quality present, use the information that arises over the next two months to clarify your enterprise. Lusty passion arises in your love life, the 26th could prove quite enticing. Love relationships and children can be a bit vexing this month. Anticipate some push and pull in regards to matter of the heart. You may seek to throw out an old script and start over completely. This choice resonates with insights you had at the end of 2016, as you find yourself reaching the same conclusion all over again.

sep2-copy

VIRGO: A financial situation seems to get stuck this month, keep the lines of communication open to see any progress in relational matters. Intuition is strong on the 4th and you can read between the lines. A new conversation begins on the 6th, pay close attention to what is being said. A Full Moon in your sign on the 12th bodes well for your self awareness and knowing where you stand. It also reveals where work needs to be done, and issues at home and a close partnership likely continue to be a part of the equation. These topics continue to unfold over the next 8 weeks. Hang in there. Mars from Taurus on the 11th is energizing for you and you’ll come out from the hinterland of a personal transformation ready to embrace a new challenge. The intimacy you seek is possible, but you may have some more internal and/or relational work to do to reach it. It’s possible a familial obligation is blocking your relational progress Be grateful for a second chance to rectify a situation which you had not fully grasped or been able to commit to over the next 6 weeks.

oct2-copy

LIBRA: Venus slows and reverses, signaling you are shelving certain negotiations and agreements for the time being. A jolt at the beginning of the month (March 2) can bring some of the issues to the table, with some clarification on the 5th and 18th a distinct possibility. You can use the New Moon on the 27th to gain clarity about what you would like to see develop in your partnerships moving forward, but perhaps give it until early May to reach to conclusion which you desire. Keep the lines of communication open, many opinions are being expressed through which you can gain in perspective. Sparks can fly during a conversation or chance encounter on the 26th. Seek respite or retreat around the 12th, as a Full Moon signals endings highlighting your innermost psychic domain. A hectic schedule at work could make it difficult to find time for restorative and relaxing activities, but make an effort to meditate and reflect as these will be so regenerative. Your intuition regarding health on the 1st and 4th can be illuminating. Mars from Taurus indicates this is a transformative period, particularly where you seek to establish security within or through a close relationship.

nov2-copy

SCORPIO: There can be some rearrangement required on the job, staffing may be shuffled or a project stalls this month. It’s also a second chance to get a project right. The work you are doing now is the stepping stone to promotion or advancement later this Summer into Fall. Give it the required polish and workmanship. Your attention is focused on a key relationship and romance, though with Venus retrograde from the 4th, this too may sidetrack temporarily. A desire for privacy and intimacy can be challenged by your numerous work assignments, which are keeping you so busy right now. Romantic stirrings during the first week will command attention. You sense your true love through a psychic bond or perhaps in a dream. Mercury aids in coming to terms with what needs to be resolved in a work situation after the 14th and a New Moon signals a clearer sense of direction on the 27th. Events this day also stimulate a very romantic awakening for you and your partner. Find a way to balance work and pleasure this month, but certainly carve out some time for a special connection on this marvelous day.

dec2-copy

SAGITTARIUS: A love relationship or creative project can sidetrack, as Venus retrograde from the 4th deters progress over the next 6 weeks. A prior commitment could prove a stumbling block for the attainment of your desires. You enter a hard working phase from the 11th, as Mars transits Taurus. A new job or assignment can keep you very busy or you may be looking for work through April. Exercise or sports can be very beneficial at this time as well and if you had not kept a New Year resolution for fitness there’s no time like the present! A New Moon on the 27th signals a bold new direction for you, though this one may not fully come together until May. A domestic issue is going to require your attention next month. Enjoy the creative vibes from the 14th, you will excel at writing projects through April. Work from home business can thrive on the 27th. Your creativity plays a role.

jan2-copy

CAPRICORN: Residential matters require reassessment, it’s possible a financial shortfall or an issue with a female family member impedes your progress. You get clarity about your desires from the New Moon on the 27th, and all will be reconciled in May. Erotic and creative energy is stimulated from the ingress of Mars in Taurus on March 12. You’ll be feeling frisky and fancy free. Take this time to work on an artistic project or cultivate your love connection. Socially this is a good time to connect and reconnect with friends. Networking and communications are highlighted on the 1st, 4th and 8th. Strong intuition or creativity is featured on the 27th. This could make for a very pleasurable experience in a love relationship. You get fresh professional impulses and continue to develop on opportunities that were presented late last year around the 2nd of the month. Keep going.

feb2-copy

AQUARIUS: You may have felt you were getting to the bottom of a huge problem, only to find your solution may be invalid. A tricky cycle for love and finance from the Venus retrograde on the 4th (lasting through the middle of next month) signals unfinished business needs attending. Vibes are good otherwise, and finances will continue to be a principal topic or concern for you over the next few weeks. The 6th and 8th are great for negotiation or making a budget. You may be forced to cut corners on the 12th or 17th, meanwhile, and these dates will reveal shortages where they really need to be addressed. Despite Venus coasting backwards, your mind is sharp and you can be inspired and downright convincing from the 24th – 29th. Excitement prevails over uncertainty. Domestic life requires attention from the 10th, though you will get a lot of support here where you need it to make changes to your residence or with those you share your home.

march2-copy

PISCES: Venus retrograde on the 4th (through the middle of next month) signals a redux is required where financial security is sought. Progress can be made on the 5th, and a direction worth considering will be revealed around the 25th. This reappraisal comes under otherwise incredibly positive influences, especially after the 11th, when Mars enters Taurus and stimulates interaction, making daily life much more exciting. Conversations and agreements on the 18th, 26th and 29th hold water, and there is no need to hold back contracts, unless your heart simply isn’t in it.  Professional turning points are likely on the 12th and 17th. You have to reconfigure yourself somehow to make the most of these valuable opportunities. The Full Moon on the 12th signals a completion or culmination in a relationship. Both Saturn and Pluto are present here, so developments are forged around awareness of a long range goal, while very passionate overtones preside. New financial ground is broken after the 27th, as a New Moon opens a door. Outside sources of income are also a topic this month, issues from the end of last year are revisited.

Stargazer Forecast February 2017

Subscribe on PATREON for advance access to next months horoscopes, 2017 e-book and more!

It’s a short, but action packed month – Leo/Pisces eclipses coupled with very dynamic alinements at the end of February make for highly volatile and electrifying experiences. Changes are to be expected as well as a very brisk pace of activities.

Much of what occurs in February pivots on the Leo 22’ 28” eclipse on the 10th. A great deal of energy is generated at this moment, especially since the Moon connects to Saturn – Sagittarius and Uranus – Aries in a brilliant fire trine. Here we are able to take tempered action on long range initiatives in an innovative manner. Sun and Jupiter also tie into this alignment adding a highly auspicious overtone to our enterprises in this phase. Despite being a somewhat mild eclipse, coupled within this configuration it manages to stimulate a lot of action and initiative (fire) especially where a creative (Leo) or technical/social (Aquarius) theme can be expressed.

leo-eclipse
The early weeks of the month bustle with activity, Venus and Mars in Aries contribute to a dynamic, go getter atmosphere while the Aquarius Sun enables us to seek out new ways of doing things, and to socialize and express ideals. The entire period around the time of the eclipse is vitalizing, as the Sun connects with Uranus and Jupiter, adding a very positive spin to culminating events.

Jupiter will retrograde on the 6th, a period of contraction that will last through June 9th. As Jupiter heads backwards in Libra, we have the opportunity to integrate the growth that has occurred since last August. For those who have been swept up in a whirlwind of expansive opportunity since, you’ll find a few months reprieve (through June 9th) to make good on what has been offered and to take those lucky breaks for what they are worth. Mutually, where we may have over done things or exploited a bounty we may find shortfall. Jupiter is more of an attitude that begets prosperity, while Venus is the tangible result of it, and with both in retrograde (Venus from March 4th), there may be a belt tightening phase ahead as we revamp and reevaluate our resources, material and otherwise.

Venus begins the month already in the shadow of it’s upcoming retro phase next month, so it’s likely the financial, relational and even creative/aesthetic (Venus rules art) topics we have been working on since January 29th, and continuing through the month will be up for reassessment or renegotiation through mid May. So much of this particular retrograde cycle pivots on the Venus – Saturn square, and you may look to events or developments that occurred January 27th for clues as to the major topics that will require your attention. Something critical must be overcome in our quest to attain pleasure, love and abundance and this will be the predominant theme through April, especially on the 8th and 21st of that month. Themes of duty and responsibility resonate intensely during this period, and as any retro phase suggests, unfinished business. We have to live up to the promises we have made and this testing influence will require we resolve any outstanding commitments or fulfill karmic contracts before we can move forward.

From the 18th Sun in Pisces will offer an intuitive and sensitive ambience, the psychic realm is open and we’ll feel more emotional attunement. The Pisces 8’ 12” Solar eclipse on the 26th will link to idealistic Neptune, generating a wishful, hopeful energy. What may have been lost or sacrificed in the challenging periods that afflicted Neptune last year, can now be reclaimed, or ideals are allowed to take on a new form, as this linkage provides a chance to dream and seek the compassionate, selfless expression that was in short supply throughout 2016. For some this will take form within a love relationship, for others a project may come up through which they can express an ideal. Spiritual topics will be important, and this fresh stimulation to our humanity or taking care of those less fortunate may be a feature of developments during the eclipse.

Sun to Pisces South Node on the 22nd, followed by Mercury on the 28th will additionally reveal where endings are required. A shift in attitude or releasing ineffective behavioral patterns will be likely as we come to terms with the realization that certain circumstances no longer serve our evolutionary drives. Since Pisces influences the South Node, it’s likely that we have to reconcile an issue connected to evasive or nebulous ways in which we handle things. Situations or intentions that have been opaque now require clarity. The Nodes are coming close to completing the their tour of the Pisces – Virgo axis, moving on to Aquarius – Leo in early May. Interesting timing that the Venus retrograde shadow phase ends around the same time as this substantial shift in consciousness. We’ll be mining through some pretty dank issues between now and then, but from mid May – a really fresh start is possible. Commit yourself to deal with matters honestly and honor the work required of you in this period whether it be tangible or spiritual in it’s nature. Treasures await those who do so.

The final week is the most combust, as Mars from warrior sign Aries (it’s natural rulership,) tangles with ruthless Pluto (on the 22nd), joins forces with liberator Uranus (on the 26th, same day as the eclipse) and opposes Jupiter on the 27th. It’s a very potent phase for very rapid evolution and sudden changes. Bold action is favored right now, but watch for power struggles during the Mars – Pluto square. Where circumstances or an individual may come across as obstinate, choose to transform yourself instead. Mars conjunct Uranus will provide an opportunity to engage a new pathway to freedom and liberation. As Jupiter moves backwards, it again engages Uranus in an opposition at the beginning of next month. We’ll see developments within storylines that were stimulated towards the end of December 2016, though of course this story does not come complete until August.

Very romantic vibes emanate from abroad and if you are traveling with your spouse in this period the 1st, 11th, 12th and 20th are divine.

Feelings of deficiency or limitation reveal where you may need to do some work.

aug2-copy

LEO: The theme this month is retreat and withdrawal. This is a period of gestation and quiet reflection that leads to transformation. A significant topic in this contemplation is one of security, primarily the security you seek to create with another person. This will be a big part of your learning curve for the next several months. The security you can provide, as well as expect to receive through a partnership (either through business or love,) is in a state of reappraisal through mid-May. Fresh winds blow towards the end of the month. Work is busy and there is a lot of communication on the job. The New Moon on the 27th impacts relationships. A new phase begins, or someone new arrives on the scene.

VIRGO: Mars and Venus stir up dust in your partnership house, both fun and/or friction could be a feature of your love relationships at this time. There will be a sense of urgency to connect in this phase, though Mercury retrograde in your area of romance could see you are stuck in a pattern loop that requires release before you can get something going. The 8th is tricky, a set back or reconsideration is possible. You may have over idealized a person a circumstance. Events reveal where it’s time to release a script that isn’t serving your better interests. The 11th and 12th are very enticing and the best in which to act on those frisky romantic impulses. Around the 27th you may start to feel a bit uncertain about the future of an association. Circumstances or resources may present a challenge to this partnership through April.

oct2-copy

LIBRA: The emphasis is on work and your career this month with a positive indication you are moving in the right direction around the Full Moon on the 12th. Pure creative inspiration prevails on the 1st and 12th and you do well to follow your muse. Your work life may be affected and artistic projects or assignments will highlight your natural talent for the arts. Home base is also in a period of powerful transition, especially around the 7th. Regenerative and healing experiences are possible and changes are likely to occur that affect your home. Communication and visitors could also be a factor here. Energy could be low at the end of the month, and if so you may want to get a check up. From the 20th, brighter days come, as the ambience shifts to more fun and romantic prospects. The New Moon on the 27th can signal a meeting or development here, and a creative urge will likely be stimulated.

nov2-copy

SCORPIO: January is a very pleasurable month as Venus and Mars simulate erotic vibrations in your arena of True Romance. Creativity is also highlighted. Circle the 1st, 7th, 11th, 12th and 20th as your key dates for developing your love connection or for activities connected to self expression. You reach a critical decision on the 29th, after a period of reconsideration stemming back the prior two months. Make up your mind and make your case. Pay close attention to shortages or feelings of restriction on the 19th and 27th, as these will show you where you have housekeeping or work to do. A work situation gets volatile on the 31st. You might have a “take this job and shove it” moment or scrap with a boss or coworker. Examine your desire to have more independence in your work life for a more productive use of this energy. Domestic matters are in flux, as you get an indication during the New Moon on the 27th.

dec2-copy

SAGITTARIUS: You domestic life is action packed this month, as momentous occurrences with your family seem to be on the horizon here. Idealism is stimulated on the 1st and 12th in particular, and there can be a real sense of serendipity to events that occur. You may be selling or giving away a family heirloom on the 8th, an emotional attachment features here and you may be releasing a treasure from your past. Financial entanglements see resolution from the 13th. You can make a serious commitment on the 29th. Watch for prickly encounters with those close to home on the 19th and 27th. You may be coming across as a bit of a heavy with those you reside with.

jan2-copy

CAPRICORN: A Full Moon on the 12th brings about a significant culmination in a close partnership. This particular lunation is locked into a very tight aspect pattern and there are somewhat disruptive overtones present if you are forming a relationship or making a business agreement at this time. You can experience some really magical moments in a love relationship on 1, 3, 12 and 20, but listen to clues and feelings of limitation around the 27th. The challenging themes present here can be nipped in the bud now, or will be dragged out through April – your choice. Do what you can to get an uncomfortable conversation out of the way. Energy is very high this month, especially on the 7th and 11th. Not so much on the 19th or 27th, easy does it. You finally make a big decision or can begin a personal initiative on the 29th, after delays and detours of the last 2 months.

feb2-copy

AQUARIUS: Finances seem a major priority this month, and the 11th and 20th are positive for progress in this area, especially around the 11th and 23rd. Negotiations behind the scenes go well and you reach an agreement. Inspiration presides on the 1st, 12th and 23rd. You can tap your creative abilities to stimulate your earnings potential. There can also be a “too good to be true” quality, and you need to mind your spending on these dates equally. Objects of beauty will hold particular appeal, but think twice and make sure you can really afford any expenses out of your normal budget. Let go of bad financial habits on the 8th. A New Moon in your sign on the 27th signals changes are brewing. You begin to sense a new you is taking hold and may desire a makeover, or to change your look or wardrobe. While these things may seem superficial, they reflect changes going on deep inside you, so remove any judgement if you feel stimulated to make such changes. Look to financial pressures that might be mounting around the 27th and try to nip an issue in the bud. This one comes back like the plague in April if you don’t.

march2-copy

PISCES: You are impassioned this month, Venus and Mars in your sign highlight your receptivity to pleasure and makes you more outgoing in your search of it. Any and all of your personal initiatives are enhanced by this dual influence. Planetary energy combining with Neptune in your sign on the 1st (Neptune) and 12th (Venus) offer inspiration and creative impetus. Friendships, and especially those that re-emerged last month have significant implications for you throughout the month. There are very special social events on the 7th, 11th, 20th, 23rd and 29th. You can really demonstrate influence in a group project on these dates. Attune yourself to the message of events around the 27th, as events or intuition (especially those associated with feelings of restriction,) offer clues to the implications of challenges that will arise again in April. A stitch in time saves nine, as they say, and it could not be more true right now.

STARGAZER FORECAST DECEMBER 2016

Please join me on PATREON.COM for extended access to Stargazer e-books, 2017 horoscopes and more!

December is both beginning and ending, a month in which we see the resolution of the many themes and topics of 2016 fading and dissolving into memory, but also a time in which the major dynamic influences of 2017 begin to be revealed. The first of a series of alinements between Libra – Jupiter (opposite) Aries – Uranus with Saturn peeking in and assisting from Sagittarius occurs between the 24th and 26th of December. Mars from Aquarius, Sun from Sag. and then Venus from Aquarius all augment and support this very unique configuration, during which we begin to see a culmination of the enterprises and storylines that we initiated in June 2010. (These took firmer hold a bit later – January to March of 2013 were ripe for initiation and rooting down with innovative ideas and life choices.)

The ambience stimulated by Jupiter – Uranus is vitalizing, energetic, volatile and highly unstable. Saturn’s influence here suggests we’ll fortunately be moderated and taking a slower and more methodical approach as we reach this critical juncture for the journey we set out on in 2010. This aspect prevails through September 2017, and with the exception of Venus retrograde next Spring and the shift of the Lunar North Node to Leo, this is going to be the most significant force we are going to contend with over the next 10 months. (It’s more than enough to keep you busy, don’t even imagine it’s going to be a boring year!)

screen-shot-2016-11-16-at-11-01-33-pm

In the context of Joseph Campbell’s Heroic Journey, the opposition aspect symbolizes that we have reached the Second Threshold, a point of crisis and confronting the abyss, of death and rebirth. Material and other temptations may emerge to lure us from our quest. Saturn, meanwhile, has already moved into the position of receiving the reward. It is our long range efforts that begin to pay off, even if only modestly, and it is within that which we have invested immense if not immeasurable amounts of dedication, that will remind us that there is still treasure to be had if we stay the course. The hard and gritty lessons and determination required during the critical Saturn in Scorpio transit have begun to yield fruit. These fruits will nourish and inspire us over these next incredible 10 months as we attend to our heroic journey. The choice to cross the threshold will take us into The Other World, and in January 2021 we reach the point of Apotheosis. The maturity we gained for remaining true to the conviction of our quest assists us through during this incredible turning point. The Leo eclipse next February will tap into this configuration and offer a very exciting development!

The Sun, Venus and Mars all activate exciting new developments, though Venus and Mars are still at odds, remaining out of one another’s reach until mid April, in the midst of a very, very tough retrograde cycle. (It may in fact be a romantic prospect that brings us back from the brink during that challenging phase.) If the love and sex life are on the meh side of the spectrum, it’s likely because the yin/yang polarity of desire and ability to receive pleasure are in such incongruous spaces, and remain so for a few more months. Your own personal chart aspects notwithstanding, this is a tenuous phase in which to see to significant developments within relationships, especially with that Venus retrograde looming.

It would be incredibly bad form to ever suggest that if you feel love and have a relationship in which you can express these feelings in a healthy, affirming way that you should avoid doing so. Simply that the love and sex drives have disparate outlets right now, and if a relationship is not going as smoothly or gaining momentum as you had hoped it would, that this could provide a clue as to why. The end of December does feature some very positive Venus contacts, as the Goddess of Love locks into the Uranus, Jupiter, Saturn aspect and we get reinforcement (and perhaps resources) that augment our potential to take on the exciting prospect for adventure it represents. Again, it’s less likely this ties into a romantic scenario, but feelings will be very positive and make for spirited Yule festivities.

TEN OF CUPS: MARS IN PISCES
Let things develop by themselves.
Breathe deeply and let a picture arise in you
which shows you in a state of complete
fulfillment. Life will offer all you need to be
happy. Gerd Ziegler, handbook for the
Aleister Crowley Tarot

While we experience a significant culmination, there is also a strong sense of disintegration and closure as Mars from Pisces (December 19 – January 29) takes all the energy and influences stimulated over the last two years Mars cycle (begun February 19, 2015) and deconstructs these initiatives, offering resolution for what we have managed to accomplish since then. We are in the process of dissolving the prior cycle in preparation for the rebirth that occurs January 29th when Mars transits zero Aries. From Pisces, we return to the vastness of creation itself and the limitless potential of everything. The Ten of Cups is a positive indicator that our hearts overflow with joy and gratitude for what we reap at the closure of this cycle, and that fulfillment is within reach.

Mars represents the vitality and drive we have to achieve our aims or to get what we desire. In this last cycle we (hopefully) learned many things about what is and is not effective or constructive use of our energy, especially during this last retrograde period in April – June. Mars conjunct South Node on the 27th will provide a signal that an activity or association has run it’s course. There can be a setback or karmic occurrence at this time. What ever happens is only meant to adjust or modify the course or to release a fruitless endeavor. You’ll know inside. Energy will also be low, so keep your major initiatives on the burner until late February. When Mars engages the Jupiter – Uranus – Saturn aspect, it’s all systems go!!!

Energy now is directed inward, and guided by compassion and inspiration. You can make the most effective use of this time through creative work, reflection and cultivation of mystical and spiritual practices. Write some music, or get on that meditation kick you’ve been putting off. The psychic realm is active and intuition will be very strong in this phase. At it’s worst, this energy, because it is so receptive, can fall into the trap of illusions or be gullible to predators who perceive this vulnerability as weakness. This is a positive time for ritual, healing and purging. Also a good time to peace out in your girl cave and listen to Mazzy Star, feel free to hang this sign on the door:

MERCURY RETROGRADE: December 19 – January 8

If you’ve been frazzled by the super hectic pace of the last 5 weeks, you’ll notice things start to slow down at the onset of the month, and that either projects come complete or you otherwise have more time to catch up through mid month. As Mercury retrogrades on the 19th, it just misses contact with Pluto, so it seems a crucial agreement or decision will have to wait until the end of January. With the general quietude of Mars transiting Pisces, (and also Venus through early February) it looks like the next two months are about clearing the decks (or cleaning up the mess) in preparation for a period of much greater activity that arrives during the winter months.

Mercury will retrograde through January 8th. From there the dust clears and we can begin to move forward with things. Have a safe and wonderful New Year, and don’t forget to join me on Patreon.com for my new weekly astrology blog!

STARGAZER HOROSCOPE BY SIGN: (It is suggested you read for your ascendant too. If you are not sure, you can calculate your chart for free on astro.com)

ARIES: Blissful social connections offer so much happiness for you this month. A holiday party can bring about a significant introduction to someone with partnership potential. Let the sparks fly and give this one time to grow into itself. You can lean on what you learned about commitments (and keeping them) in 2014 and have a better idea now of what you really have to offer. Professional matters and where you are heading become the hot topic of conversation, though this one takes a while to hammer out. Listen to offers (and to your own inner voice) through February. The conviction to make an enduring decision and rise to that challenge, will come in a few months time.

TAURUS: The buzz for you is profession and advancement, your big picture goals are in focus and a great deal of energy and enthusiasm can help you move towards a big milestone. An assignment or new job enhances your public profile, and this is a good time to take on an extra position. You might come into contact with someone who can help you up the ladder while doing a freelance gig, so keep your feelers out there. Forces behind the scenes, as well as your intuition are conspiring to your benefit. Spend some time with your confidantes or on your own to heed the important message being sent your way. Friends and associates can brighten your spirits. A connection may come to an end around the 27th. It’s in your best interest to walk away at this time.

GEMINI: After a pretty rough year, you finally hit the sweet spot. Life is very lively and exciting in this phase. A commitment may be deepening in this period, and this could be contributing to your satisfaction as well. A Full Moon in your sign on the 13th shows you how far you have come this year. It’s time to release a defeating pattern or activity associated with your career or vocational objectives. Events or indications around the 27th reveal the details. A better professional atmosphere prevails next month, though 2017 has a few tricks up it’s sleeve. (Give yourself till May to work out all the kinks!) Enjoy the camaraderie and social opportunities available at this time.

CANCER: Could be a long and winding road for a close or exclusive partnership is in store, Mercury retrograde sends out mixed signals about where you are headed with you know who! A serious, deep down and dirty conversation about your commitment needs to happen, but won’t until late January. Hang in there, babe. The more exciting news seems to taking place for you professionally, as a rather dry and dormant period for your career is coming to an end. Events around the beginning and end of the month offer incredible indications, seems you need to leave your comfort zone to make the most of the opportunities in store. A New Moon on the 29th signals changes in your status. See what January has in store before you buy that ring.

LEO: Partnerships are emphasized this month with really incredible social opportunities in store at both the beginning of the month as well as over the weekend of the 25th. If you’ve been feeling like taking a relationship to the next level, you could find you are ready to make a big step this month. The Mercury retrograde cycle impacts your work, health and productivity sector, so if you’ve been waiting to hear about an assignment or promotion, you might be waiting a bit longer. There are good indications towards the end of the month that signal stagnation for your life direction is clearing. You’ll seek some privacy from the limelight towards the end of the month and into the new year. A meditation practice or retreat can be beneficial.

VIRGO: Love and partnerships have likely been a source of all kinds of weird, complicated and beguiling scenarios this year, if not a source of outright frustration. The road gets easier this month and you can proceed with a relationship with a deeper sense of assurance and commitment, though the retrograde period of Mercury will likely see a few missed signals and maybe a reconsideration, Mars and later Venus coming to occupy the part of your chart associated with your other half signal fresh impulses are stirring in your love life. The 27th is time to release a worn out relationship script, I think they call that one beating a dead horse. (January 8th also features some strong clues of what you need to let go of.) Financials are in a state of great vitality, perhaps sudden expansion, and a work from home business can thrive in this phase.

LIBRA: It’s a real bang up of a month for Libra, so much energy is percolating in a creative enterprise or with a romantic relationship. The first few days of the month can seal the deal on an important commitment for either business or pleasure. There is more in store over the weekend of the 24th and you will doubtless be ringing in many happy returns, regardless of how catastrophic 2016 may have been for you at times. Uranus direct from the 29th signals a dry spell in a relationship is coming to an end. If you are not partnered, you will see exciting prospects emerge in February and through the Spring. From the 20th you enter a hard working phase. The assignments you deal with throughout January propel you to success this Summer, so do your best work. Mercury retrograde impacts your residence. If relocating, best to wait till February!

SCORPIO: The cutbacks and commitment you have demonstrated in trying to work out your tough financial issues are beginning to pay off, though probably in a scenario that is very private and behind the scenes. Your desire to self employment or the sense of liberation you seek from the workaday world is rekindled this month, and from New Years forward you see better influences here, particularly from February. Home is where the heart is for you right now, and you will likely be holding your key social and family events at your own place, possibly hosting those from out of town or having a nice, low key soiree. It’s been mostly a bitterly tough year for matters of the heart, and you’ve probably taken some time to lick your wounds. Feelings stir in your romantic sector from the 20th, a trend that takes you right through January. Release an old script on the 27th, and get in touch with someone you lost touch with.

SAGITTARIUS: It’s a boisterous and exciting month for you with very positive indications that your hard work and maturing outlook are really beginning to pay off. Events at the beginning of the month, as well as over the weekend of the 24th provide immense opportunities for making enduring and positive moves. Some of these have to do with a love relationship, and if you’ve been floundering you might find the inroads to make a commitment around the Full Moon on the 13th. Mercury retrograde impacts you money, honey, so get it in writing and don’t make yourself nuts waiting for the check to show up in the mail. It won’t. Or at least not until the end of January. The 10th and 12th are dynamic for you, you make a very positive impression. Bravo!

CAPRICORN: Very dynamic points in your chart are stimulated by the upcoming configurations and your base of operations, profession and private life all play a big role in the upcoming 10 months. It’s not impossible you need to relocate to take an offer or opportunity associated with you career, or that your work is going to keep you on the road a lot as you ascend the heights of your ambition. The work you are doing remains very much behind the scenes through next year. When Saturn moves into your sign next December you’ll enter a new high profile phase, reaping the rewards of the work you are doing now and no doubt an impeccable work ethic. You are learning to trust your inner voice more than your inner critic. Mercury in your sign for most of the next 8 weeks will likely make you busy-busy-busy. Finances are also key this month, with a proper pay off for your work in the early days of the month.

AQUARIUS: By far this will be the best month of the year for you, as Mars and Venus stimulate a very positive and productive ambience, and make harmonious combinations to Uranus and Jupiter throughout the month. An older friend may provide very good advice or support for your endeavors. Your’ ruling planet turning direct on the 29th will help you shake any doldrums. There is an infectiously playful element at work and the Full Moon on the 13th is absolutely delightful for self expression or a romantic relationship. Out and about is the best place to be! Mercury retrograde impacts your private life, and you can get some mixed signals from your subconscious. Dreams will be revealing, and can reveal what you need to say goodbye to. Mars from the 19th makes your finances a high priority. A source of income may come to an end on the 27th.

PISCES: You are back stage and getting ready for something really, really big Pisces, as Mars and then Venus come to occupy your slice of the sky. For now, you are working away behind the scenes and seeing some very exciting financial developments from what you have been cooking. A professional venture is highlighted and you may get capital to expand or develop your business, or be getting a raise for your hard work. This is an ongoing process that lasts through August, so you may just be in the initial phases this month, with more to be revealed up ahead. A limiting belief or behavior can effectively be released on the 27th, perhaps an enterprise or activity has run it’s course. You shine brightly on New Years Eve, bring on the bubbly and enjoy a romantic interlude. You are worth it.

STARGAZER NOVEMBER FORECAST

Please join me on PATREON.COM for access to my new weekly astrology newsletter, e-books, 2017 horoscopes and more! 

The weird and the wonderful. Two major events preside in November’s star scape, the conjunction of South Node to Neptune, (Nov. 18th) and the Jupiter – Pluto square on the 24th. Mars will move into Aquarius on the 9th, charging the atmosphere with excitement and a wiley bit of fun instability. Mars has not been in an air sign since the end of last year, and this transit (through Dec. 20th,) will stimulate intellectual discovery and social connections opening pathways and conduits that have been stuck, stilted and stalled. The very positive aspects culminating between Mars – Jupiter – Saturn and Uranus next month start to build up now, though Mars is essentially a free agent from Aquarius, (just the way Aquarius likes it) until December 1st. (This configuration, BTW, is one of the most dominating influences occurring next year, we just get a taste of it in December, with Aquarius – Mars activating it. More on this next month!)

There is a definite yuk factor with the South Node connecting to Neptune, though having made it though the dreary Saturn – Neptune square that was so inhibiting and challenging this year, this might not be a real “biggie” though the karma returned on disillusioning ourselves (or others) can bring a bout of disheartening disappointment if we had allowed the illusory to slide out of control. An ending occurs where an idealism lies, and while that release may be painful, it’s a necessary part of our evolution right now and we are far better served for letting this one go. Purging and cleansing are effective both ritually and physically.

I had this amazing friend Suzanne, who when I was in the process of trying to rationalize seriously dumb life choices would say to me – “there is no cheese down that hole”. Likewise with this transit, simply acknowledge there is no growth opportunity in the thing you might be clinging to, so don’t waste time deluding yourself or trying to convince yourself otherwise. Letting go lightens your load, so if you find yourself to defaulting to the land of make-believe when things don’t look or go the way you think they are supposed to, just give yourself a little kick in the butt and back up from the hole, reminding yourself all the while – there is no damn cheese in there. In releasing this illusion or refusing to participate in the lie you free yourself to see and be the truth.

SOMEBODY WEIRD LIKE ME…

An interesting vibration emerges round the 23rd when Black Moon Lillith forms an enticing and erotically healing linkage with Chiron. A passionate connection can deepen considerably at this time although there is definitely an eccentric or unusual quality with this contact. Lillith and Chiron exist totally on the outsider wavelength and it’s here the misfits can find their matches, no doubt somewhere out on the fringes of society. Everyone on some level, no matter how natively conservative, will seek to express the wild side or fly a freak flag. Liberator Mars in Aquarius will urge us to go for it unrepentantly, and there will be some intriguing developments for sure…

nov24

SEIZE THE MOMENT

Then we have Jupiter square Pluto on the 24th, which is tapped into a dynamic with Venus, moving into the configuration on the 25th. On it’s own, there can be a massive shift in the balance (Libra) of power (Capricorn) that becomes very urgent on a personal level (Moon – Venus). Earlier this year we had the trine, or easy flow between them. Look to events in March and June, when an agenda may have galvanized on some level as this will likely be the subject surrounding the events we see transpire late in November here.

This agenda is transformed at this point, as it enters a critical period of culmination. This is one of the dominating themes that will last through next August, and also a significant pivot for endeavors initiated back in December 2007, when Jupiter – Pluto conjuncted at 28 Aquarius. This is the closing phase of a cycle that began at that time, now reaching a period of crisis to finish what we started. The new cycle will begin in 2020. Jupiter is expansion and Pluto is power. Together there can be amplified feelings to gain dominance or control. Ultimately we each only really have the power to control ourselves, as using subversive or Plutonian tactics of coercion to gain authority over others is neither heroic or really a victorious accomplishment. The catalyst here is to look within, transform from within and then together to create better things that can benefit us all. Hopefully the altruism stimulated by Mars in Aquarius will help us to find the way through.

Stargazer Scopes by Sign:

ARIES: The focus moves from intimate and financial matters to your profession this month, as a long negotiation regarding a promotion begins to escalate through the end of the year. A partner can push you forward, or equally over the edge. Look to eliminate negative self talk. If you find yourself sabotaging your own best efforts and interests, might be time to step back from that edge and let go of some negative conditioning. The same rings true for a delusion or ANY addictions.

TAURUS: Partnerships are in a phase of culmination and travel with a loved one (particularly after the 11th) will be incredibly pleasurable. Explore enticing possibilities on the 25th. A Full Moon in your sign on the 14th brings a year of revelations to the fore, you can release the burdens of the past and move forward now. Work and professional matters get a big boost of mojo, with even bigger developments on tap for December.

GEMINI: You’ll feel more comfortable in your skin than you have in ages with Mars in Aquarius from the 9th. Deadlock in a relationship or what has seemed like barren prospects for romantic encounters begin to open into more fruitful dialogues from the 29th, as the New Moon stimulates you to take more initiative. You may find career matters hit a slump, especially where you may have over idealized a circumstance or even your own abilities a situation may come up short.

CANCER: Really romantic vibes come your way from mid month. You may be swept off your feet on the 19th or 25th. Residential improvements are still on the radar, but you and a partner might not see eye to eye on how or when to expand. This is a conversation that could last through next Summer. Nice and easy. A work from home business could really take off from next month, put in some foot work now to secure a good outcome.

LEO: Partnerships get a huge jolt of va va room from the 9th, this energy can translate into feisty and erotic discourse or contentious arguments if you aren’t seeing eye to eye with a mate. Work is also highlighted and job seekers can find new and lucrative assignments. Some intensity in the last weeks at work can bring some changes to the environment. The Full Moon on the 14th sees a professional course come to completion.

VIRGO: Sands are shifting, albeit slowly and from the 19th you should begin to notice a changed atmosphere in your household and with a relationship. You are in one of the most challenging cycles of the decade for these critical elements of your life, trying to build a solid base for yourself while the pervasive illusion of an enticing affair can prove a setback. It’s time to release an old pattern of idealism or deceit. The 19th and 25th can be very alluring, be honest about what you want.

LIBRA: Domestic friction is replaced with harmony and sweetness as you will see from the 13th. Socially this is a very active period, catch up with your buddies and friends and enjoy the brisk pace of communication and day to day life. A creative project may beacon after the 10th, build the positive momentum for this now and see what culminates in December. It’s time to release a bad habit that has been affecting your health or productivity. This is easier after the 19th.

SCORPIO: You are coming back into your own, after a year of self discovery and stop – start progress you are feeling more aligned with your objectives since the Scorpio New Moon last month, a helpful trend that continues for a few more weeks. Partnerships and connecting with your heart’s desire culminate brilliantly around the Full Moon mid month. Meanwhile it’s time to leave behind an old script in a love relationship, an illusion has run it’s course.

SAGITTARIUS: Life gets very busy from mid-month onward. Conversations, errands and social events are on tap for you, and introduce some fun and leisure where the pressure had been on security issues over the last several weeks. A New Moon in your sign on the 29th signals winds of change and a new order. Insecurities surrounding home and profession are stimulated and there can be lot to contend with at this time. A draining attribute of your home situation needs to be released.

CAPRICORN: You experience the sweeter side of things from the 13th. With a Venus transit of your sign, a loving and highly pleasurable bond can be built now. The 19th and 25th are enticing. Focus on your communication. Something has slid out of control and a misunderstanding or assumption needs to be clarified. The end of the month features some volatile influences, seize the day. Professionally matters continue to escalate. Be in it to win it for a big opportunity next month.

AQUARIUS: You are still attending to the behind the scenes business in the first half, but feel complete renewal and invigoration from the 9th as Mars transits your sign, bestowing energy and initiative that has been lacking for most of the year. What culminates over the next 6 weeks is phenomenal, let your inventive spirit guide you. Domestic matters are resolved mid month. A slippery financial situation needs attention. If you have been passively hoping for improvement, it’s time to take a firm stand.

PISCES: A part of your identity is ready to be shed. You are entering a cocoon phase through December 20th, when you will emerge renewed and restored. If you have been evasive or deceptive in anyway it’s time to make clear your intentions both with yourself and to others. Friends and social activities provide a pleasurable atmosphere, and the 19th is an especially favorable date for connecting romantically or otherwise with people who’s company you genuinely enjoy.

STARGAZER FORECAST OCTOBER 2016

… OF MAGIC AND MASTERY

Mercury begins the month by retracing its’ steps through the last decan of Virgo, clearing the airwaves and removing the residue of the prior 8 weeks as clarity and conviction resume. By the 11th, a long sought after breakthrough is likely as the third Mercury – Jupiter conjunction signals the beginning of a new cycle of growth and expansive activities. Publishing or media can feature, though this energy is equally helpful for articulating our feelings in a relationship and mending fences that may have been damaged over the prior phase.

Mercury leaves shadow on the 7th, swiftly entering Libra for a brisk two weeks. The pace is socially oriented and art events and creative activities can really be enjoyed, especially with well heeled friends or associates. Look for clues around October 4th, when Mercury transits the degree of last months’ Pisces eclipse (September 16th). News or a decision regarding events around that time can now be finalized and put into place. September was a messy month, and it’s around this time we can really find the closure we seek and genuinely move forward. Missed and mixed messages finally reach their intended audience.

Intense Lunations this month feature wild card Uranus conjunct the Aries Full Moon (October 16th) and a passionate New Moon in Scorpio connecting to mystical and visionary Neptune from Pisces on the 30th. Many big changes are afoot, and a sense of new beginnings and transformation should prevail. There is a real keg fire quality to the events of mid month, with Uranus in play there can be a real desire to authentic self expression at any cost, with bridges burned in the melee provoked, so watch where you light those matches, Sparky. The 30th allows us to release all the tough Scorpio lessons of the last 3 years and rekindle our relationship to passion. The Moon is smitten with Neptune at this time, making this one really sparkly, romantic, glamorous and inspirational. This vibration makes for an especially magical All Hallows celebration.

SATURN SQUARE NODES: FACING THE FUTURE

Saturn is prominent in October, traveling further from the hazy auspices of Neptune that provided so many challenges over the last year, while moving swiftly into a square with the nodes, an aspect that comes most precise around October 8th. Saturn represents time and structure, endless and relentless – the nodes the past and future, as well as destiny and where opportunity for development lies. With Saturn in this position, we come to a pivotal place in our journey. A crucial assessment occurs here. Are we moving in the right direction? Have we truly embraced where we are headed? Taskmaster Saturn may well ask, are you ready to do the work to get there and do you posses the skills required?

The nodes represent a direction in space and our current evolutionary orientation, with the path we should travel indicated by the North Node and thus what we set behind as we move towards that direction, it’s polar or axis opposite, the South Node. On their own they don’t provide a specific atmosphere the way the planets in signs do.

It’s only when the nodes become activated by transiting planets (and of course, most notably, during strong eclipses, which is why these periods are so volatile!) that their influence is most readily experienced and thus able to integrate. Nodal contacts are meant to get us back on course, to embrace that path we are supposed to travel. With Saturn’s highly pressurized, diamond making abilities stimulating that course, this transit presents an opportunity to realign with that objective, though there is equally a painful reminder of what we have left behind or surrendered in order to do so as a consequence of those choices. As much of the year has served thus far, the advancement of life choices, agendas or enterprises that transpired in 2013 is the ongoing theme here.

In this case you may want to think back specifically to September of that year. It was at that time a North Node – Saturn conjunction took place at 8 Scorpio (sextile Pluto 8 Capricorn, no less). Goals set or endeavors that unfolded in that period are being tested and recalibrated now. Our agenda undergoes a period of crisis and transformation as Saturn reaches this pivotal point. The nodes appear to travel backwards, so the current evolutionary objective resides in Virgo. The house being transited in your chart is “where” (the evolutionary emphasis and greatest opportunity for growth is present) and the energy symbolized by the sign representing “how” you will get there.

Again there is the theme of “are you ready to work for it” and with Saturn in the mix these are long range objectives, things you spend many years of your life working to manifest. When you get there, the feeling of accomplishment is so immense, because it requires determination to overcome the many obstacles and because nothing short of mastery of self and the material world also played a role in your success. With the North Node active you should find if you are doing the right things, doors open up for you. If you make the effort and get out of the comfort zone things fall into place. With Saturn the work here is doubled, and the square suggests the sacrifices could feel enormous at this time. You are acutely aware of what you are letting go of as you reach to obtain the future you know intuitively you have to move towards.

Mars in Capricorn (through November 9) amplifies this all enormously. The tenacity required to get what we want is available right now. There is a rough and ready quality to October and you can go very far this month if you are willing to focus your activities, dig in and put in the work. Mars harmonizes the nodes on the 15th (from 12 Capricorn), making this a productive day for insight and advancement. Mars conjunct Pluto at 15 Capricorn on the 19th initiates a two year cycle of transformational activities and reclamation of power. There can be malevolence with this aspect when used for personal gain, and even violence. At it’s best and highest this represents a true merger between two entities that seek catharsis through their affiliation. Together they make something so much bigger, better and especially – powerful. From Capricorn this could indicate a business merger is big possibility, but look specifically to where this falls in your chart to see where you will experience this dynamic surge of energy as this is where you will be making a crucial and life changing commitment.

A SPRINKLING OF FAIRYDUST…

Cinderella by NikitaCosplay @DeviantArt

Venus in Sagittarius (from the 19th) and Jupiter in Libra will keep the ambience outgoing, social and genuinely positive. A unique aspect forming on the 25th – 26th draws together Jupiter and Venus in mutual reception (Jupiter rules Sagittarius, transiting Libra, while Venus rules Libra, transiting in Sag.) forming a sextile while both align with visionary and inspirational Neptune. Meanwhile, Moon in Virgo conjuncts the North Node! Amazing! There is something quite romantic and magical about this configuration. Affection and generosity will be enhanced. The alchemical Jupiter – Neptune quincunx (Venus and Neptune will be square,) adds a fairytale connotation to the whole vibration, while Moon to North Node means we are emotionally and intuitively attuned to the appropriate path we should be on. Good fortune comes where we have prepared for the road to the future. It’s a really divine atmosphere and something quite significant may come to fruition under these auspices.

oct26

The following day, Sun and Mercury conjunct at 3 Scorpio, signaling the beginning of a new four month cycle of activity and communication. The following 6 weeks are the most productive period of the Mercury cycle, and it’s likely events that have transpired over the recent days stimulate the agenda here. We will see the objectives and projects we initiate now come to fruition over the next four months.

ARIES: The pace is accelerating in all key areas of your life right now. A significant personal milestone can be reached mid month, as the Full Moon in your sign on the 16th pulls the trigger on an exciting chain reaction that lasts through the New Year. A new or developing relationship might be the cause of celebration and excitation. The unexpected features largely here, and you may be the recipient of a new, prestigious role professionally or through your university. The 29th brings all the details to light. A lost connection can be rekindled after the 7th. You’ll find it much easier to express yourself to the one you care for. Your drive and determination can take you far, but be wary of power dynamics NSFW around the 19th. From there the vibe gets enticingly romantic, especially where you can expand your boundaries through a love relationship. Someone who can take you out of the familiar or routine will be particularly appealing, especially on the 26th.

TAURUS: There are promising alinements in your chart for love, and a relationship thrives especially where you can get out of the comfort zone and embrace broader horizons. The 1st and 5th have wonderful vibrations that enhance your romantic desires and make them easier to fulfill. A New Moon on the 30th shows you how far you have come on the road to love, the doldrums and dead ends so much in the rear view mirror for you. Work life, and particularly the work you might be doing behind the scenes is featured after the 23rd. A big splash in your industry is possible and your creativity shines in this late October phase. This approach can also help you with a niggling financial issue. Debt or a repayment may need to be restructured, if these issues are crippling to you, then it’s possible to find a solution now. You might find releasing a cherished dream is the sacrifice, but provides you with a long range solution that gives you peace of mind.

GEMINI: The agents of transformation are hard at work in your life right now, making it worthwhile to embrace the adage “Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only change form”. The areas of your life that are seeing closure right now are bleeding life, light and energy directly into new realms of expression and discovery you may not have even considered yet. So it it feels like you are walking through a war zone and the wilderness, keep in mind that the next stage of the cycle is regenerative. This awakening may be aided by a kindred spirit. From the 19th to the middle of next month, love may present itself (the 26th is positively magical!) so look for angels and allies in your midst. A commitment you make on the 29th will stand the test of time. What you feel around this time shows you both how far you have come (as well as how far you still have to go) in your own self awareness.

CANCER: The partnership zone intensifies for you and passions will be very much aroused this month. Very pleasurable vibes for you on the 1st and 5th illuminate your creative potential and can be very enticing for romantic encounters. The heat is on (although this “heat” can equally be produced by conflict) in your committed relationships, especially around the 19th. This potent and dynamic period can produce a breakthrough (or equally a breakdown) in your couple as very transformative forces come to play in the life of your partner. The effects these have on you will be meaningful, and potentially create a shift in the balance of power. Set aside expectations for the time being, life is changing swiftly and accelerating circumstances (especially those ignited mid month) carry over into the super sweet and good vibrations you get at the end of the month during the loverly New Moon in Scorpio on the 30th. Also on fire (proverbially) this month is your profession, with a surprise – surprise!! coming in around the 16th during a highly eventful Full Moon in Aries. Depending on how you feel about your current standing in your profession, you might just bite the bullet an make an unanticipated change yourself. Good luck!

LEO: You manage to work out some of the trickier dynamics in the financial realm early this month, though still have numerous opportunities to evaluate and develop sources of income for a while longer. This can be a hardworking phase for you, though tough energy at the office or on the job (mainly relating to dominating personalities,) continue to make for a contentious environment. This will be particularly hard to avoid around the 19th. Mid month could present an exciting opportunity for an unexpected trip or journey. If you are already planning to be away, you can expect an eventful adventure! Very pleasurable and alluring vibrations come your way from the 18th as Venus opens the doors to pleasure from your arena of true romance. Your energy may be a bit low around the 7th, take care with some R+R. Disengage if you cannot see the point of view of a difficult person. Domestic life and the family remain a large priority, and you are rapidly seeing improvements in this arena. You can make a significant change for the better around the New Moon on the 30th, and you may wish to enhance your surroundings with art or decorative objects that inspire you.

VIRGO: The love life can get exciting this month as high energy levels infect your area of true romance and creativity. You’ll seek to express yourself and your affection within a love relationship. The 5th, 11th and 19th are dynamic for breakthroughs, especially if your hopes for a commitment had been dashed or a relationship faltered over the Summer months. Meaningful mergers can be made under the auspices of the Full Moon on the 16th. An unexpected overture can send your heart soaring. You can connect deeply with your lover when you are willing to be completely honest about your expectations and especially your sexual needs and desires. This level of trust brings you to a new level of intimacy. Addressing the domestic challenges gets easier from the 19th. If your place is radiating a spartan sort of appeal or feeling cold to you, spruce it up with a few decorative objects or paint a single wall a stunning, but subtle shade of rose. The shift in consciousness will uplift your spirit immediately. The New Moon on the 30th is significant for a love relationship. Express your heart’s desires to the one you cherish.

LIBRA: The ambience is dynamic and eventful with much going on in so many significant sectors of your life this month. A relationship may get a reboot, mid month is the time to go for your heart’s desire and lay it all on the line in the name of love. A partner must connect with you in an authentic way to win you over, and friendship is a huge part of that. There’s a super-dynamite-wow factor in your relationships around the Full Moon (Oct. 16th) and exciting culminations and dramatic endings could all be highlighted. If you aren’t getting what you want and need on the reals, you might be the one lighting the match at the keg fire. One way or another, a big kaboom is coming. Home and heritage also feature and you might be delving into your family history or uprooting yourself to make a more enduring domestic commitment. The 19th can be revolutionary for a breakthrough related to your childhood or living arrangements. The final week features some very pretty and glamorous vibes, even better if you are traveling or engaged with an artistic association somehow. Business commitments and contracts made towards the end of the month benefit your long range goals.

SCORPIO: You finally get a chance to rectify the mistakes of the past and clear up certain issues with certain someones in time for a new beginning set to take place for you during your New Moon on the 30th. With Saturn and more recently Mars causing so many personal grievances for you over the last 3 years, it certainly will be wonderful to turn a new leaf and page. For now, reflection is due and to make the most of your new beginning you really need to to find closure and make peace with the past. Forgiveness may be a part of this, but also being aware of your own short comings and realizing where you, too, made a mistake or two is a part of this process. With benefic Jupiter aiding the proceedings, you likely find that your landing is padded, and the graciousness available to you here (especially around the 26th) is so valuable as you process the endings you are making in this time period. The longer range challenge still remains in your financial realm, with tough indications (but equally opportunities) this month to fix your problems through hard work. There may be a creative solution that makes a big difference in the outcome, or friends may play a helpful role. Mid month may be the final straw at work, or you could finally get a long sought after promotion. A work from home business could escalate. The New Moon taps your love mojo on the 30th. You’ll realize how far you’ve come, so make that wish.

SAGITTARIUS: After so many months hosting cantankerous Mars in your sign, it will likely be an absolute pleasure to find Venus here after the 18th, especially after an exciting Full Moon triggers unexpected, but enticing developments, in the arena of true romance mid month. You can follow your heart’s desire now. The week of the 24th is splendid and you should do as much as you can to reach out to friends or through social events or activities. Financial and professional goals are within reach now though you have to put in the time and work hard for it. The 19th could bring a long range effort to culmination, intense changes are brewing in your financial realm. The New Moon on the 30th clears the way to release the past. Towards the end of the month you may find a need to go under cover and lay low while you strategize your next move. Events around the 30th show you how far you have come. Take on a goal you set but never got around to. Personal adjustments you make now can have a bigger than usual impact in your profession and public role.

CAPRICORN: It’s a real dynamite month for you Cap, with Mars in your sign you can go after what you want in unprecedented fashion. The destination is well in sight now, though an adjustment has to made to your overall strategy or within your subjective self. Look to limiting or negative self talk around the 8th. If you find you are somehow sabotaging your own efforts you have the opportunity now to address (and then eliminate) why. Really exciting events are taking place from mid month, and you may find you are finally holding the reigns and driving the charge here. What occurs around the 19th demonstrates how significantly you have changed over the last several years, and power can be made available to you (or other substantial resources that enable you to experience life to the fullest of your passionate desires) though this is far more likely if you have really put in some efforts towards the self mastery required to be worthy of such an opportunity. Hint: you must acknowledge the contribution of those around you to what you are creating whether in love, business or otherwise. This has to be about a merger that offers the ability to transform – nothing less. Bear in mind to whom you owe what for making such a profound change possible in your life. Better yet if they are aware of your implicit value and mutual contribution. Now you are getting somewhere. Ready… set… BOOM.

AQUARIUS: There are some highly pleasurable moments in store for you this month and a lot of enjoyment can be experienced through social and intellectual exchanges. From mid month daily life gets really vibrant and harmonious energy prevails. The 26th is lovely for connecting with someone in a cultural setting. You can put your best foot forward in such a circumstance. Stirrings of change in your professional life brewing since early this year finally begin to take foot towards the end of the month. With several years of challenge behind you, it’s time to strike out on a new (or improved) path and find your way towards your higher calling once more. The New Moon on the 30th clears the way for such an upswing, with highly inspirational overtones signaling the right direction to take. A lot is going on behind the scenes for you and a sense of closure or endings could predominate. Pay attention to your inner venting: misplaced feelings of frustration or passive aggressive actions can be instructive of behaviors and attitudes you need to release. From next month you will find a fun and dynamic new atmosphere where you can really go after your hearts desires.

PISCES: There are some very intense vibrations this month, but you haven’t quite reached the do or die moment quite yet. There are choices to be made, it would seem that a key partnership continues to shape and play a major role in your destiny. You can pinpoint the time around the 8th to see the most crucial details arise. For the most part the energy is amenable for you, as Venus from Scorpio (through the 18th) continues to enhance your receptivity to pleasure. Engagement on a passionate level is likely in this period and you may find towards the final weeks that deal making, mergers and the financial auspices of others (lenders, banks, patrons ect.) can play a very helpful role in your upward mobility. A significant relationship may also be established with someone who is connected to you professionally, the energy flows both ways. Very sweet vibrations will be present at this time, do be careful you do not misrepresent yourself. Neptune will be afoot and you might seek to bend the truth to make a better impression, but this will backfire. Really good vibes at the end of the month make for a magical Halloween. The New Moon rekindles your visionary inspiration, see where it takes you!

STARGAZER FORECAST SEPTEMBER 2016

TURNING POINTS – CROSSING THE THRESHOLD TO A NEW LIFE

A significant turning point in September is largely defined by the Saturn – Neptune square, with the stakes and potential for transformation amplified by two very intense eclipses, falling in Virgo (September 1st) and Pisces (September 16th). Late November of 2015 saw the first aspect occur, the onset of a challenge associated within the manifestation of an ideal (or otherwise the realization of an illusion) that has been pervasive throughout most of the year. The final culmination (September 10th) will show how well we have navigated the confrontation that emerged, and whether or not the attainment of the ideal has been successful. In order to do this we have likely had to overcome something, or prove our dedication. Saturn has a back to basics quality that requires a certain mettle and staunch determination that likely described what was required to overcome the challenge(s) presented. Much has been stripped away in order to complete this task. The reality check here was to really evaluate and define what is real (difficult under the gauzy-hazy auspices of the Neptune square) and work with what we actually have, in order to create that which could possibly be.

Neptune’s impulses come from a etherial and creative place that stimulates divine inspiration. Saturn demanded that the inspiration be crystalized into some kind of workable and tangible form. Jupiter from Virgo added emphasis to the material realm, and gave us some beneficial tools to work with, assisting us in finding new methods to stimulate productivity. Health and wellness have also been a focus, with the North Node pointing us toward an evolutionary path that shows us better ways to manage well being. Finding the right life management patterns has a positive and outward effect on all else going on with us and around us. Feeling good most certainly boosts our availability to be present, both for generating the endurance that is required as we work toward successful outcomes as well as to meet the demands of more critical challenges as they inevitably occur.

The eclipses this month represent a real shake up, and may prove severe testing points for the durability of the structures we have developed or the path to the future we wish to sow. September 1st can be volatile, as our 9 Virgo eclipse falls right in the cross hairs of the culminating Saturn – Neptune square, which is already strong enough by the end of August to clearly be felt. A Solar Eclipse represents a moment for monumental growth forward and engagement of a new opportunity, and while this will certainly be no exception, this particular prospect is inhibited by the ongoing challenges Saturn – Neptune represent. It’s also possible an event or insight that occurs around this time provides the necessary breakthrough or catalyst through which we find the solution to a sizable conflict. With the Eclipse ruler (using Mercury as the traditional ruler of Virgo) in detriment because it is retrograde, it’s going to take an extra bit of sorting through to get there. (Bookmark October 6th as the place where everything can begin to fall into place, at least on an organizational level.) Sun conjunct North Node on September 5th will provide clearer directives that illuminate the pathway to the future.

PISCES ECLIPSE 9/16:

pisces eclipse

While the Solar Eclipse may be vexing, mainly because of the impediments to that which we seek to get off the ground, it’s really the Lunar Eclipse at 24 Pisces on the 16th that packs the punch. Lunar eclipses signal endings, and with Mars in hard aspect, square both Sun and Moon, it could be an ending that comes out of an argument or disagreement. Saying goodbye is always more difficult under the auspices of a bad break or burning a bridge, and there is a rather hostile and contentious atmosphere at this time. It could equally be that a significant culmination occurs that someone on the sidelines disapproves of and responds to argumentatively or aggressively. An ethical or legal dispute can also present an issue or conflict around this period.

Moon and Chiron in Pisces will also be close at the time of the Eclipse, and there can be a healing release connecting back to events last March. Letting go of pain, and perhaps more significantly, the idea we have to continue putting energy into a situation out of feelings of sympathy – as opposed to a genuine desire to participate, are also significant topics of the eclipse that seek resolution. This also ties into feelings of personal self worth, or a lack there of, that keeps us tenuously bound to unhealthy or unsatisfying relationships or conditions. This will be a potent time in which to evaluate these feelings and make an effort to resolve these issues where we find them to be present. Sensitivity will be heightened immensely at this time, so take it real easy if you are naturally empathic/intuitive. In the following days, the Aries Moon rejuvenates and from September 17 – 19, Venus, Mars and Uranus all align playfully, igniting a really fun and dynamic ambience for love, pleasure and sex, especially where you are ready to try something, or even someone, new.

Mercury retrograde (August 30 – September 22) underscores the dynamic atmosphere of the month, in some ways muddling the proceedings, but also ensuring we get it right, so we can move forward with clarity and conviction into the incredibly advantageous final quarter of the year. Mercury has two significant accomplices during the RX cycle, Jupiter and Pluto, which will actually stimulate a very positive ambience for growth through the conversations and negotiations that will take place throughout September. Jupiter, with which Mercury remains in very close communication with from August 20 – September 5th, infuses communication and thinking with hope and optimism for the future. From Virgo, refinement of a concept or the methods we engage in order to manifest it are highlighted. The combination of the two augurs good will and expansion. So towards the end of August we are generating big and exciting ideas, and making very positive strides within communication based activities.

Mercury then takes a step back to reevaluate the grand design it’s working on, spending the final two weeks of September in harmonious alignment with Pluto, the period from the 20th – 23rd signaling the peak of their contact. The cosmic messenger takes the bold ideas it formed with Jupiter and intensifies them through the connection with Pluto, ensuring these prospects and activities augment and enhance the deeper transformation that is occurring in our lives. The modification that transpires now is crucial and will boost our chances at success, so don’t feel deterred if things seem to be taking a while to get sorted. Important information has yet to be revealed and Virgo – Mercury seeks to establish a methodology that will generate the best results. This does not necessarily indicate a loss of momentum, just a period of reassessment that will likely be very busy as we attend to numerous details!

Look to developments that occurred in March and June (when Jupiter and Pluto were trine) as we are currently in the process of articulating and manifesting the goals and opportunities represented by those contacts. This period from the 20th – 23rd is when the most vital conversations will occur, with Mercury turning direct on the 22nd, we pivot towards a new agenda directly out of the agreements and discussions taking place at this vital and significant time. Mercury will combine forces emphatically with Jupiter at 7 Libra for a third time on October 11th, and it will be all systems go on the relationship, lifestyle and enterprise from there.

With Jupiter in Libra from the 10th, we shift from the learning phase of the last year into a climate ripe for initiative and new beginnings. Jupiter in Libra will emphasize creating balanced relationships between ourselves and others, and offer expansive opportunities through relating, especially within artistic and intellectual activities. Jupiter will engage with Pluto and Uranus this year, encouraging a more diplomatic response to the more volatile and abrasive confrontations we have endured since 2012. Partnerships will thrive, as the Sun – Jupiter conjunction (Sep. 26th) and Libra New Moon on the 30th will quickly attest to. Venus in Libra through September 23rd sets the tone, stimulating amenable social conditions and the cultivation of connections that will enhance prosperity and growth.

The ambience really gets a jolt at the end of the month, as Pluto resumes direct motion on the 26th and Mars enters Capricorn the following day. An executive and professional atmosphere prevails and our most determined efforts and conviction towards success become stimulated. A persevering quality is present through mid November, and makes this a good period in which to tackle a tough project or challenge you can completely immerse yourself within, particularly if it leads to promotion and advancement. (Mars conjunct Pluto and square Jupiter in October will really amplify the desire to succeed, perhaps at any cost!) With so many challenges otherwise overcome, and the tumultuous back and fourth we’ve experienced so far this year, by the time we reach the Fall Equinox (Sept. 22nd) a new beginning transpires that signals the turning point we have all been waiting for. Things get better from here on out, as we enter the most productive and positive quarter of the year, which in many ways will seem like it’s only beginning. Happy Autumn Time, I hope it will be most magical for you!

LIBRA: You have phenomenal auspices this month, though attending to unfinished business seems to require your attention before you can truly embrace the substantial upgrades that are on route. You may spending some time in limbo as you reflect on the past so you can genuinely release burdens and baggage. It’s a good period in which to reflect on what has or has not worked, and to eradicate patterns of behavior tied up mainly in feelings that contribute to self sabotage. So many bigger and brighter things are on the way! Mid month events require dexterity, and emancipation from burdensome lifestyle arrangements or a job or habit that is holding you back from the massive success story in store for you over the coming year is highly likely at this time. Health can be precarious, especially if you are keeping a hectic schedule. An emphasis on the living arrangements come into focus during the last week and you can begin to make headway on your residential goals. The New Moon on the 30th begins a period of growth and prosperity for the coming year. Set intentions and make your wish.

 

SCORPIO: A love relationship continues to mutate in strange and mysterious ways, and the time is ripe to release the notion that someone is, or needs to be, perfect all the time and see this situation (and this person) for what it really is. Financial shortfalls continue to provide a contentious environment for the satisfaction of your desires, and may motivate you to press harder and harder for resolution, this will be especially apparent mid month. A job or assignment can produce a helpful boost in income over the weekend of the 17th. A soulful sojourn is possible now, as Venus and Jupiter illuminate your hidden desires. Intuition strengthens and dreams and premonitions illuminate what you seek in a love relationship. From the 23rd, the ambience shifts favorably, as Venus enters your sign. Pluto direct a few days later sees you back in your element, sensations of desire and intimacy resume their course and allow you to deepen your commitments accordingly.

 

SAGITTARIUS: Incredible dynamics are at play for you professionally, and despite a few road blocks and the twists and turns (Mercury retro, up ahead) it’s fair to assume a fantastic outcome when all the kinks have finally been ironed out. It looks as though you are in negotiation for a promotion and a lot of dialogue between the 20th – 23rd surrounding the topic of your compensation will be settled at that time. From there, everything moves and grooves forward, and with Mars leaving your sign on the 27th you’ll be feeling less antsy and hot under the collar. Domestic issues will culminate mid month, and a change is in the works in which you can settle a residential of family matter. There is a tense ambience around this transition that affects you personally, so don’t burn a bridge unless you really can afford to. The 17th – 19th speaks to love and creativity, you may meet someone with whom you spark unexpected and exciting synergy. Wonderful!

 

CAPRICORN: While clarity will not improve immediately, the clearing is in sight, and what you are capable of doing is setting targets and intentions, even if you are not quite sure how you will get there yet. Future objectives and especially professional pursuits are favorably highlighted (the weekend of the 17th and the New Moon on the 30th are especially advantageous) with significant developments for you particularly from the last week of the month. Pluto direct on the 26th and Mars from your sign the following day boost your charisma enormously, what ever frustration or delay you may have experienced so far this year, the time is right to make your boldest and biggest moves. Remember: iron fist – velvet glove, Jupiter in Libra bestows fortune on those who are tactful and diplomatic, so speak to your passion and conviction without bullying for the best results. Romantic and passionate energy is also generated under these auspices and you can (re)connect from the 23rd onward with someone who really stimulates your deepest desires.

 

AQUARIUS: Eclipses affect your finances this month and you may be seeing an end to one source of income, which in most cases has become a burdensome prospect or enterprise anyway, in order to make room for new growth (which you are likely to discover closer to the end of the year). You will find prosperity through a partner’s income or with a grant or loan right now, though the twists and turns of Mercury retrograde over the next few weeks will slow the process accordingly. News and developments unfolding from behind the scenes between the 20th – 23rd will reveal the missing links and from there you will be ready to move forward. Professionally you get a big boost from the 23rd, as positive influences help remedy some of the more abrasive challenges that have underscored your career quest for most of the year. Socially this remains a vibrant and exciting period, with Venus and Jupiter both stimulating genuine feel good vibes for you, and the weekend of the 17th an incredibly potent period for love and relationship building, you can anticipate some fun and revelry as well.

 

PISCES: It can be a volatile if not life changing month for the Fishes, with a huge culmination or meeting with destiny on the cards, particularly in regard to a key relationship. Partnerships are evolving at incredible speed right now, (look to the dates of both eclipses for crucial events) and even with a Mercury retrograde muddying the water, where you wind up at the end of this transformational month is going to look a whole lot different for you than where it began! With the dankness of the Saturn – Neptune square coming to closure, you will begin to see more clearly in the near future who or what your heart truly seeks. Thunderbolts and unexpected meetings or developments are stimulated, and the revelation of a soul mate connection is possible that leads you there. A conflict mid month can trigger professional anxiety or restlessness. Use the very positive days that follow (September 17th – 19th) to make financial inroads and grow your prosperity and reputation. A positive attitude will take you very far.
