Venus began it’s transit of flirtatious, social butterfly Gemini Saturday the 11th, the tone in romantic affiliations is light and breezy. Keeping it casual will be the way to go for the upcoming weeks, and affection will be expressed through shared intellectual activities, social events and parties. Communication is enhanced during this transit, and partnered or not, there will be pleasure derived through writing, speaking and learning. The first stage of this journey may prove challenging, as Venus opposes Saturn midweek, and affections and finances are tested and even stressed. Saturn in Sagittarius is pointing us in the direction of something specific, and Gemini prefers to scatter it’s energy. The challenge here lies in the desire to reach out to new and ephemeral activities and attachments, Saturn reminds us of the long range goal, perhaps presenting an obstacle, financial or otherwise to our aims. This is the culminating opposition of the Venus – Saturn cycle, which began November 13, 2014 at 25 Scorpio, so we see the manifestation or maturation of objectives or relationships that started around that time. There can be feelings of fleeting depression or negativity with this transit, which requires a serious appraisal of what is and what is not working. Realizing that certain activities are not yielding the consequences we had sought may be disheartening, but it’s also an opportunity to lessen the load and get rid of things that have become superfluous.

Mercury enters Taurus on Tuesday the 14th, providing a more stable ambience for laying down the groundwork of our plans, likely stimulated during the electrifying impulses and awareness released during the passage through Aries. We can ground our efforts into tangible form now and come up with methods and agreements that facilitate our endeavors. Use this while you can, the upcoming Mercury shadow and retrograde phase from May into June will throw us all for a loop, making the next two weeks integral for putting forth our best efforts and getting to work towards the objectives that have likely eluded us so far this year. Mercury quincunx Saturn on Thursday will require modifications be made to existing plans, as new information surfaces and clarification and refinement of objectives must be made. Here again, we are reducing the superfluous elements from the plan and moving forward with a more simplified agenda. Communication may be tense around this period, so maybe not the best date for your most important negotiations.

Pluto retrogrades on Thursday at 15′ 33″ Capricorn, signaling the intensity level is about to diminish. Pluto has been pretty active this year so far, so for many it will be a welcome reprieve from all that transformative energy that has abounded in the atmosphere. The retrograde phase lasts through September 25th, when it will reactivate the necessity toward inner psychological change. For now, we digest the profound encounters and personal revelations that have transpired since the end of September last year.

Mars from Taurus is active this week, sextile Neptune on Sunday, stimulating fantasy and visionary tendencies. There is a real soft edge to the energy at this time, and it can be satisfying to indulge day dreams or or gratifying experiences through engagement with music, cinema or art. Spiritual tendencies are also highlighted, and we’ll see the progression of an inspirational quest that initiated January 19th, when these planets were conjunct at 5 Pisces. By the end of the week, Mars reaches Jupiter, as the two fiery planets square off in a battle royale. The Moon from Aries adds a stimulating emotional undertone, and there may be a propensity towards brash and big ventures or risk. This is the closing square in the Mars – Jupiter cycle initiated July 23rd, 2013, so we will urgently seek to complete the business of what we began at that time. We will work very hard now to bring these to a conclusion, to make space for the new cycle which begins on October 16th, when the energy renews at 13 Virgo.

The week culminates in the Aries New Moon on Saturday, illuminating a sense of rebirth and renewal as we continue to move forward towards our new horizons. The lunation is essentially unaspected, but some of the heat of the Mars – Jupiter square will be present and infuse our passion and vitality. The crucial (and in some cases intense,) beginnings made in these prior weeks come to root now as we begin to really perceive what the future can be, and take action to get there. The eclipses shook us out of complacency and brought numerous endings as well as stimulation to build up new aspects of our lives based on new awareness. From Aries, the planets aroused the pioneer spirit, and we can bravely move towards the objectives illuminated over the prior month.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES: The intensity with which you have been pursuing your ambitions recedes through September. You can take what you have learned since last Fall and refine your strategies as you see what proves successful and that which has not. You may also find there are less conflicts in this arena, and that setting the course for your professional goals becomes easier as a result. The upcoming period is best used towards self expression and romantic engagements. A child may feature, and you may decide to have one or otherwise link up with someone who brings you into contact with the younger generation. Finances will also continue to require attention and the next two weeks are advantageous for negotiating contracts and getting a budget together. A conflict may arise towards the end of the week in which you may have to curtail your activities as a result of being financially overburdened. Meanwhile social activities will also provide luminous exchanges, and day to day discourse, communication and writing will all be enhanced positively. Though the social arena is lit brilliantly for you, you may experience ideological conflicts with someone as a confrontation emphasizing values may prove a bit of a shake up midweek. A partnership may also require appraisal and a significant conversation with a spouse or someone you are linked to in business could be a feature. The New Moon in your sign heralds a new beginning for you, and with so much having transpired in recent weeks – from shake ups to break ups – you are ready to get things back on track, and are prepared to see a new world order on queue for yourself in the very immediate future. There has been a great deal of food for thought about where you want to go next, what is the next cycle of evolution in your life. You can set your intentions for a new beginning on Saturday based on your new awareness and move forward graciously towards the next destination.

TAURUS: The thunderbolts and interior revelations that clamored within the nether regions of your psyche over the prior weeks begin to dwindle, and with Mars and Mercury (from Tuesday) transiting your sign, you’ll feel more clarity towards your life direction can really begin to assert and articulate yourself as you steer closer to your birthday. The New Moon next Saturday will allow you to clear the decks of your subconscious and offers a sense of renewal where you have likely made numerous adaptations in your private life over the last 6 weeks. Feelings of romantic revelry will likely stir Sunday, this is an auspicious time for a date or social event that can bring a fortunate acquaintance into your life. Your imagination is stimulated so this is a good time for an event connected to art, music or cinema especially. Wednesday can be a bit more vexing, particularly where finances are concerned. You may find a debt forces you to curtail a desired luxury purchase, though you will find improved conditions after this week to bolster earnings even if you feel the pinch now. Further concessions or adjustments may need to be made Thursday, this is a good time to address a budgetary issue or contemplate your repayment schedules. From Thursday Pluto retrograde signals a less intense ambience for your academic life, but can also represent a gear shift in a partnership as well. (Pluto rules your 7th house of committed relationships.) There could be a relationship with someone connected to your academic life or someone from a distance with whom you have shared a passionate exchange over the prior months that recedes for a while. This applies to any close partnership as well, not just romantic ones. There could be a clash within your domestic world at the end of the week and you may clash with someone in your home environment or simply feel frustrated about your circumstances. There is initiative available to you to take action at this time on a situation that has stagnated since the end of last year. By Saturday night you are more in your element as the moon transits your sign. Slow and steady.

GEMINI: With your ruling planet moving into slow and steady Taurus on Tuesday, the pace will be a bit more measured for you over the coming two weeks. (Enjoy it while you can, you have nearly 10 weeks of Mercury transiting your sign beginning on the 30th!!!) Meanwhile a Venus transit genuinely brightens your days though could signal some growing pains mid week as you desire to connect to another only to run into obstacles. If someone comes off as detached or closed off you may have to consider the signals you are sending, you may just be getting a reflection of what you putting out there. As you are in a heavy period of appraisal of what a committed relationship means to you, and it’s possible people perceive your introspection as a form of withdrawal from the relationship. These Saturn transits will reveal a great deal to you in regards to where you really stand and are quite crucial to your inquiry, so heed them. Venus makes far better aspects for you next week and you’ll find more favorable conditions socially and romantically. The eclipse may have stirred feelings towards a romantic encounter as well, with next week really exceptional to follow through on what culminated at that time. You’ll meanwhile find some of the financial emphasis comes off and have may recently completed paying off a large debt or will soon do so. The New Moon next weekend amplifies your social connectivity and benefit immensely through the presence of Venus to engage with pleasurable activities and people. Watch your words on Friday, though, a belligerent and outspoken energy presides and you may push hard (or be pushed hard upon) in conversation. Rash decisions may lead to accidents! Be careful out there!

CANCER: There is a tenuous balance forming between fantasy and reality this week. Venus begins a transit of your house of all that is hidden and secret, stimulating your latent and etherial essence, meanwhile commitments at work draw your attention. Mid week sees a conflict between a desire for quiet reflection and even intimacy with the demands of your work schedule. Adjustment will be required here and you’ll be reflective about your obligations and duties and how well they are serving your interior motivations. This transit will likely stimulate some very imaginative energies, and the focus of your wishful thinking will likely feature romantic day dreams. This may not seem particularly productive, but can be useful as you’ll be able to tap your deepest realms of fantasy and these can point you to what you are missing or that which you seek. It’s also likely your dreams will be very active and the symbols or patterns revealed can be very instructive in revealing what you are seeking and what is ready to be released. Some of the heat or tension in a partnership may come off while Pluto retrogrades through September. It’s a positive period to digest and address the significant transformations that have occurred since last September. Social life and time with friends will be featured, and many communications and events will fill your schedule through the end of the month. things get a bit contentious Friday night, there may be an argument over money or you may be tempted to overdo it and spend lavishly at a fun event. The New Moon Saturday brings home all of the permutations that have occurred for you professionally over the last 6 weeks, and prepares you to accept a new role or position of authority or responsibility. Chaotic energies that have been precipitating may also have culminated in a decision to strike out on a whole new path and try for a whole new career. The stage is set for a new beginning here. Tune in to what you really want Friday, and take steps next weekend towards a new destiny on the New Moon.

LEO: More emphasis comes into your professional arena this week and you may find yourself quite busy over the rest of the month with conversations, projects or negotiations surrounding your career. Discussions may become a bit contentious Thursday, so do carefully consider your words before you speak. It’s also possible an agreement or arrangement stalls and needs to be modified in someway before you can move forward. A love affair may conflict with your affiliations in a peer group or an association mid week. You may use what is uncovered here to consider to what and to whom you chose to be bound to. Venus in Gemini amplifies a desire to connect socially, and there will be many positive opportunities over the upcoming week to seek and find pleasure through group events and occasions. This road bump may prove divisive to a forming love relationship, as you may choose the approval of others over your own need for steady cultivation of self expression or with someone for whom you feel affection. If this pisses you off somehow, use that feeling to determine what is right for you and set some boundaries with the people involved. Mars continues in your 10th house of fame, profession and honors and you seek the limelight of success. You experience a brilliant serendipity on Sunday through a private exchange that enhances or reinforces your desires in this realm. There may also be a sense of inspiration towards the appropriate path to find the recognition you seek. A very exciting opportunity may come your way Friday, you won’t be able to contain your excitement! Meanwhile, the pressure and intensity you have been experiencing in your work life may dissipate as Pluto retrogrades through September. The New Moon Saturday is divine for connecting with the sacred within you and finding a new boundary to cross on the route to self awareness and discovery. A sense of the magical and divine opens to you, and you likely feel both powerful and resolved.

VIRGO: Professionally you are ready to take on an exciting new role, this is an area of import for the next several months. Venus gliding through this part of the chart suggests this is a good time to pave the road with positive intentions as well as team build and cultivate positive associations that will help guide your passage. With Sun, Mars and a 10 week visit from Mercury due, there is a long-lasting emphasis on profession moving right into Summer you need to prepare for! Doing so now will aid you in success in the long run. You can use the positive energy on hand now to really tune into what you want. Wednesday is a bit of a challenge for all this, as you’ll be torn between domestic responsibilities and perhaps forced to choose between, say, an important networking event or familial commitments. This brings awareness to a shift you are going to have to make if you want to pursue the goals and aspirations you hold dear. There can be a painful episode where you may realize something is passing away in your life, or must be surrendered. This is a normal process in your evolution right now, tune into it and just let go. Pluto retrograde will take some of the pointed intensity out of a love affair or the relationship connected to your child or children. Meanwhile you continue to seek to broaden your mind, and there can be a very pleasurable and stimulating excursion, possibly with a  partner on Sunday. A more contentious vibration is due on Friday, where your privacy may feel violated and there is the potential for danger if you are traveling. Good news arrives towards at the end of the week regarding a grant, loan or a partners income. After months of volatility, you are ready for this one!

LIBRA: Mid week will be a bit of a challenge for you, and after a cathartic and dramatic period you are ready for reprieve! Ideas and beliefs can be at the crux of a conflict this week, and you may discover that coming to a mutual agreement with someone is next to impossible, which can be deflating. Things get easier as Venus transits Gemini, enhancing your charisma and affectionate nature, while putting you at ease with yourself. You will take enjoyment from cultural activities and engaging higher intellect through meeting people or through encountering those from other cultures. You will also be effective at promoting yourself in this phase. Better aspects upcoming will generate a very positive climate. You are tapped into the spiritual arena at the beginning of the week, as Mars – Neptune infuse you with creative awareness into the secrets of your own subconscious, perhaps through a deeply intimate encounter. This may have a positive effect on your health and productivity, or you may find a stream of revenue attached to your creative potential. Towards the end of the week, you may clash with a partner over social activities that seem to pull you away from the relationship somehow. There may also be a crisis in regard to finances, though this can be effectively dealt with by the beginning of next week. Mercury through Taurus gives you the words to articulate your desires for intimacy, allowing an important conversation in a love (or perhaps business alliance) through which you can express your deepest longings and desires. These have been stimulated by Venus and Mars recently, and by the time the Sun arrives to this area next week you will be able to pull the connection you seek with another towards you. All the changes you have gone through over the last month, particularly those in relation to your identity and the transformation of your ideals for a relationship as a result, come to crystallization of a whole new brilliant beginning during the New Moon on Saturday. Someone significant may (or may have recently) be entering your life, and there is propitious energy and the stage set to engage emerging partnerships wholeheartedly now.

SCORPIO: Partnerships continue to be emphasized, with a romantic relationship featured beautifully on Sunday and a pivotal business association in frame towards the end of the week. You can deepen a bond with the one you love on the 12th, really harmonious exchange taps right into your romantic desires and you find it easy to express your affection to the one you care for. Mercury in Taurus from Tuesday forward sees a great deal of connectivity and exchange in this relationship, and this is a good time to negotiate with business parters and to sign contracts. Venus in Gemini stimulates erotic and passionate intensity, you’ll likely desire to make a more significant commitment in a love relationship over the next few months as this area of your chart sees numerous transits. This is a good period to attend to joint financial matters, and if you are seeking capital from outside sources this is a favorable time over all. You may see challenges within a financial arrangement midweek, or come up short as bills become due. Assessment of the conditions of your earnings require appraisal and adjustment, though more flowing aspects through the rest of the month will help you generate more lucrative streams of revenue. For now it’s worthwhile to cut out what you can and address outstanding debt where possible. The New Moon next weekend points to a new role on the job, or changes at work that will enhance productivity. New people may arrive to your workplace, offering fresh energy and ideas that prove revitalizing to your team. This is precipitated by encountering (or seeking out) a very dynamic person who may seek to help you expand professionally. Events on Friday enhance your tendency toward ambitious enterprises, and a partner may have helpful ideas, if you are willing to hear them out! You’ll desire to take on a lot, stay focused and use the energy of the New Moon as it will assist you to manage your time and resources effectively.

SAGITTARIUS: With Venus transiting Gemini, you continue to put out positive energy that draws people to you. Your light is on, so to speak, and you can magnetize a mate or use this energy to develop and cultivate a more loving connection with someone you already care for. Wednesday could prove a bit more challenging for you, however, as your monastic tendencies as of late may have a debilitating effect on your ability to openly share your affection. You can use the triggers and cues you get around this time to see where you might be self sabotaging your own real need to find a meaningful connection to someone. Maybe you don’t desire a relationship right now? This is perfectly fine, though the universe seems to be suggesting that you are sending out signals that say you are, and events over the coming weeks (and months) may fling someone into your orbit, whether you believe you are ready or not. Mercury comes in to assist you with your workload this week, and this is a good time to find efficient methods and work on time management issues. There will likely be a good deal of communication at the workplace, expect a brisk pace on the job. Someone at the “office” (or your equivalent, since we don’t all work in offices, after all,) may really piss you off Thursday as a critical matter, perhaps an oversight impacts you rather personally. This can be an effective time to form a new strategy if things aren’t going smoothly. An episode Friday can lead to excess, wither you are celebrating a victory with your colleagues, or a disruptive event triggers a disagreement, expect a highly stimulated environment! Next Saturdays’ New Moon is a very personal beginning for you, and a creative or self expressive matter, even a new love affair can precipitate quickly where you may not have even been considering such a development. The more disruptive influences in this area are quieting down now and what was stimulated within you over the last two months can now take form and truly start now.

CAPRICORN: There are marked differences in the energy fields as compared to last week, one major feature will be the prominent renewal of your professional and work objectives. These were likely stimulated by the recent Libra eclipse, (April 4th) now with Venus in Gemini and your house of productivity, assignments and work, you start to feel the impetus to take some initiative pointing you towards success in your chosen career. Venus really improves the working conditions, as well as relationships with colleagues. Venus is the natural ruler of your house of fame, recognition and honor, so this is a favorable influence for doing or finding work that leads to a promotion or is otherwise connected to your professional aspirations. With Venus you get assistance from others or even financial help, perhaps a raise is on queue. (Look to really auspicious events that arise between the 22nd and 24th of the month, when Venus harmonizes the degree of the eclipse among other very favorable aspects to make important meetings or plan important initiatives!) It’s a bumpy start as a mid week Venus – Saturn opposition can swiftly remove the wind from your sails. It seems you have to prove yourself to someone to claim your prize or get your worth. Saturn reveals it’s prickly nature if someone calls you out especially, as it’s transiting an area of debilitation and potentially stirs feelings that call into question your own sense of personal value, making you quite vulnerable to such criticism. Rather than withdraw or retreat, try instead to regroup! No one is perfect, and just because your life is a work in progress does not mean you aren’t prepared to take on something new! Passion may dwindle somewhat through September, but so too will some of that life changing intensity! Absorb what you have been through so far and live the changes you have made since last Fall. Erotic intensity is still running high – you can communicate your hearts desire to the one you love early in the week, as Friday sees the currents of desire running at a high voltage and you seek an intensely intimate experience. Don’t bite off more than you can chew, Cap. Literally! The New Moon Saturday signals a significant development in your domestic life – possibly a change in residence you have sought to make for a really long time and stimulated immensely by events over these prior weeks.

AQUARIUS: Domestic concerns are still paramount, with interesting developments Sunday and Friday, though the more exciting news this week lies in the transit of Venus through Gemini, the area of your chart that corresponds with pleasure, self expression, creativity and true romance. With this area lit up so beautifully for the next four weeks, it might just be that all else takes back seat while you enjoy one of the more favorable periods of the year, no? This all gets off to a bumpy start this week, when Venus and Saturn aspect stressfully Wednesday. An obstacle associated with your profession or a social group or organization may interfere with personal objectives in a disheartening episode. Worry not! Things get much improved next week, and it’s important to enjoy this transit as much as possible. From the 30th you are going to have a 10 week tour-de-force in this area, featuring a Gemini lineup including the Sun, Mars and a lengthy visit of Mercury (due to upcoming retrograde), so enjoy the loverly Venus vibration while you can before things intensify! The domestic realm is of continued emphasis, and Mercury from Taurus, for a scant two weeks, allows you to speak with living mates or negotiate a lease to make improvements in your situation. You may just have an influx of visitors, or be seeking a new roommate, in some way the home is the scene for a lot of activity from Tuesday. Querulous developments set off at the end of the week can see you in a dispute with a partner. There could be disagreement about the arrangements of your relationship associated with your household. The ambience will be robust, but potentially very exciting and offer a needed breakthrough! The Aries New Moon allows a new social chapter, very much influenced by the strong energies and awareness that were stimulated in this prior phase and signaling new, creative opportunities for you to engage with like minded people.

PISCES: The strong values and earnings emphasis of the last few months culminates this week in the Aries New Moon next Saturday. The hunches and inspirations that have sent electrical currents through your earnings sector led you somewhere completely new in relation to your income, now you can make a move that is going to allow you to completely alter how you make money or form a new strategy as to how you’ll spend it. Sunday is your best for the week, as a Mars – Neptune sextile stimulates your innate sense of wonder and magic. Your social life is very vibrant in this phase, and this will be highlighted by the passage of Mercury from Tuesday. Numerous events, meetings and parties will keep the pace brisk through Spring. Meanwhile you’ll also see a shifting emphasis towards the home life as Venus transits Gemini over the next few weeks. This is an area that is going to be a huge topic for you over the next 2 – 3 months, and you may want to use this positive period during the Venus transit to make residential reforms and enhance the domestic environment with decor or a spring cleaning. Professional commitments may throw you for a loop midweek as Venus tangles with Saturn, you may have to curtail improvements you want to make at home in order to meet your obligations. The Moon in your sign at this time will keep you in tune with what you really want and you can go from there. Thursday also sends some contentious signals regarding the profession, a contract or agreement regarding a promotion may need to be renegotiated. Friday will see some interesting developments on the job, there can be a vibrant energy surrounding the work environment, and perhaps a huge breakthrough, but a lot of big personalities at the work space and potentially some disagreements. Arm yourself!

STARGAZER WEEKLY FORECAST APRIL 5 – 11, 2015

JUPITER DIRECT – THE RISE OF ZEUS

Jupiter turns direct on Wednesday April 8th at 12:57 pm EST at 12′ 35″ Leo. Set your clocks! This dynamic event signifies a potent phase of growth and opportunity for all, in many ways the beginning of 2015 occurs this week. We may still be reeling from events that took place over the recent eclipse (Saturday April 4th) as the ramifications will reverberate for about six months. Events now will be pivotal and set the course as incredible energy fields are activated throughout the week. This is a very fiery period, as Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are all highlighted, and the awakening of the God of Gods – Jupiter (Roman) or Zeus (Greek) amidst the clamor and lightning precipitated by conjunctions of Sun – Uranus and Mercury – Uranus in Aries is genuinely clearing the way for real immensely exciting new phases of activity, though developments arise quickly and need to be grabbed if we want to make the most of these exceptional opportunities. New cycles beginning now allow us to completely revolutionize our perspective. Brilliant flashes of inspiration are likely and progressive and innovative solutions can be made under these auspices.

On it’s own, fire (and the amount of fire we see this week particularly) is pure spirit and enthusiasm. Imagination, passion and desire are all sensationally stimulated in this phase. It’s pure energy in it’s most raw and vital form. But what do we make of it? How can we utilize and harness these powerful forces towards a positive and creative outcome? Fire is about now. What is right now and in front of you, what can I do at this PRECISE MOMENT IN TIME? Fire is also highly instinctual, and there is not always a predetermined place to which we seek to arrive under these auspices, but rather an impulse to take action that will simply take us somewhere else. Not necessarily knowing the destination is what makes it an adventure! The placement of Venus and Mars in Taurus are very constructive at this point, we can look to the agenda of Taurus in our chart to see where we are building, and use this energy towards passionate engagement towards those goals. Uranus prevalent in the chart this week suggests the future – put it all together and we are enthusiastically (fire) building (Taurus) the future (Uranus). Jupiter direct aids this process, luck and expansion is possible again, especially where we realized as far back as September (when Jupiter went into retrograde shadow) that the energy was turning inward and that the development of our relationships and enterprises would see set backs for some time.

Pluto plays a pivotal role, square Sun and Mercury and forcing reappraisal of our activities by reminding us we still have skin to shed and outmoded frameworks to deconstruct in order to make real progress. The transformative potential of this period is therefore immense, (much of this culminated in the Eclipse phase,) there are elements of our existence that require release, as will become evident during the Pluto contacts. Working through the challenges that may be present (and the challenge is in your head: once you choose to no longer to perceive it as a challenge and see it as an opportunity for transformation, it ceases to be one,) yield extraordinary developments around the 21st – 22nd. What is useful and instructive about these angles is they allow us to realize we do in fact have all the tools we need to transform our lives into what we seek if we are willing to hone them properly. This requires removing our ego and the expectation we can always get precisely what we want the way we expect to get it.

All it takes is the courage to live by our convictions. Jupiter in Leo enhances this enormously, the strong Sun/Mercury influence from Aries says yes. So the opportunity here is to look out right now at what is in front of you and ask what can I do today to make my life into what I want it to be with what is available to me. Thursday is remarkable – the ambience is vital, awake and alive. Tune into this and by Friday you are ready to articulate your vision to the world! Sun and Mercury conjunct at 19 Aries, mid way between the retrograde phases, to set the pace for the next Mercury cycle which endures through July 23rd. Agreements, decisions and commitments taken at this time will be the thrust of the agenda for the upcoming months. Venus moves into double-your-pleasure Gemini next Saturday, which I’ll write more about in next weeks forecast.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

**Get the most out of your forecast by reading for your Sun sign as well as Ascendant, or Rising Sign. You can get your chart for free on astro.com**

ARIES: You come face to face with a part of yourself you are ready to relinquish at the beginning of the week. A conversation or signal on Easter Sunday taps the emotional dynamics still resonating from the recent eclipse and you’ll find it necessary to kill the karma that is limiting your ability to relate to or through another human being. This can be about removing a personal mode of behavior that is holding you back from authentic engagement, like trying to be too autonomous out of fear of being confined, otherwise you may end a relationship that is discouraging or inhibiting your genuine self expression. A part of that self expression is being able to express love itself, and where a positive climate for developing an association through which you encounter those feelings had diminished towards the end of last year, from mid week you see a complete turnaround and regeneration with this person, or perhaps someone entirely new. The key ingredient here is the shared expression of joy and enthusiasm. Genuine pleasure and ardent passion, absolutely nothing less is granted. Enhanced perception of your own creative gifts are a factor as well, you may well discover your muse or the well spring of vital inspiration. From here on out it’s onwards and upwards as liberating and stimulating occurrences throughout the week allow you to assert your individuality and make huge strides towards personal emancipation. The end of the week is astonishing and this is a wonderful time in which to engage socially. Friday is positively dynamic for articulating yourself and setting your personal agenda, no holds barred.

TAURUS: This week is particularly unique to you, as was last, while both Venus and Mars transit your sign, stimulating desire and your ability to experience pleasure mutually. Venus decamps for intellectual Gemini at the end of the week, so make the most of every enticing opportunity that arises! 😉 The Moon transiting Scorpio at the beginning of the week points your attention to the dynamics of your partnerships, and Monday is fruitful for exchanges with the one you would like to get closer to. Subconscious impulses are hard to resist as electrifying intuition reveal deep awareness of your hidden motives or agenda. Very etherial and visionary influences are accessible, making this a positive period to reveal and relinquish your personal baggage or tap into a creative inspiration usually hidden deeply in your subconscious. Also a good phase for psychotherapy since the portal to your subjective awareness is wide open right now. Dreams and premonitory senses are heightened, and it is through these you can access the buried treasure of latent desires or hope for the future. In some ways, some of this is old news, you’ll get intonations of that around Easter, and become aware of what is ready to go. Jupiter direct mid week signals a very positive period for your living arrangements. If you had been hopeful for an expansion or move from the end of last Summer, but plans were set aside, you’ll see a sweep of energy here that allows you to tackle those projects and make plans shortly. Some of the inner guidance you tap this week demonstrate where all this needs to go, by June you’ll likely be prepared to make a monumental shift in your domestic life.

GEMINI: This is a very active week for Gemini, as Mercury races through Aries and social events or occasions provide you many fun and exciting episodes. Take Tuesday with a grain of salt, a contentious alinement to Pluto can make a situation prickly. Finances may play a role here, or otherwise you may uncover a secret among your friends that has negative consequences. You feel provocative and enlivened, and your really electrifying and impulsive energy abounds. If you working with a groups or organization, this is a very positive week for progress and breakthroughs. A tech based project (such as a website, or online publication) can really be culminated now with groundbreaking ideas forthcoming when you get together with your crew and brainstorm. Saturn’s transit of your house of partners has required a hard look at how and with whom you relate one on one. This inquiry is renewed midweek, as the Moon transits this area of your chart and brings sensitivity and awareness to your relationship. With Saturn recently retrograded, you may reconsider a decision you made and find yourself thinking about second chances. Positive vibrations (sensational, actually!) on Thursday will push you back out into the social arena where connectivity is king. You delight in the company and stimulation of spending time with others. Jupiter direct adds momentum to this and a writing or learning project that had been shelved since last Fall/Winter comes back into the frame and you see the potential of that project one again with renewed interest. Financials will have to be considered over the weekend, and tune ups or modifications will need to be made. This is a good time to settle debt. Attend to this swiftly so that you may delight in the pleasurable experiences due to you when Venus begins a once in a year transit of your sign beginning next Saturday.

CANCER: The career prospects have had a dynamic and resonant impact for some time now, and a fateful decision or conversation early in the week will have lasting implications that likely change the course of your destiny, possibly quite unexpectedly! Offers may come to fruition, or you may be compelled to strike out on your own. A sense of liberation and need for genuine modes of activity here will stimulate you to attempt a bold new course of action. Your partner may not see eye to eye with you on these developments, and if in business with this person there can be some particularly quarrelsome moments, with a transformative episode on tap next Saturday. A really vibrant atmosphere in your work, productivity, financial and professional life such as what you get right now is incredibly (once in a lifetime) rare, so make the most of opportunities that come into frame or get left in the dust. Quick movement and decisions will be required. You are used to traveling in a moon-boat, and this week is a revved up Lamborghini. Being a sensitive soul, the intensity present in this phase may feel a bit overwhelming, so do make sure you are getting adequate rest! The very positive outcome for you in this phase and your reward for juggling so much dynamic energy comes in the form of prosperity: you can really come out ahead financially over the coming months for the hard work (Saturn) and progressive action (Uranus) you take now. Events Thursday will illustrate this brilliantly, and a promotion that had been on queue but never fully manifested will take wings by the end of the week.

LEO: While you may have gotten intonations over the prior weeks that things are looking up, it is really this week that all the pieces begin to come together, and that 2015 is really ready to launch. You can set your clock for Wednesday the 8th, 12:57 pm EST for Jupiter to direct station in your sign. This momentous occasion is precipitated by events earlier in the week, signaling a significant shift in orientation, as your awareness is stimulated and feelings of renewal and excitement begin to escalate. There is an immense desire to reach out into realms unknown and expand the boundaries of your consciousness at this time. You may seek to do this through travel, through education or otherwise a broadcasting or publishing project may prove satisfying to you during this period. Thursday is pure vitality and sensation, as you awaken to the possibilities for growth, and by Friday you can stitch together your plan of action. Some, though not all (Mars transits Taurus through May 13th) of the focus moves from your professional sector towards more pleasurable social experiences and enjoyment of the fruits of your labor as Venus moves into Gemini next Saturday. The one caveat to this period is an ongoing need to address a health or work related issue, this seems to present an obstacle in some way, Saturday sees a turning point of some sort, and you may get a diagnosis for a mysterious health problem or otherwise be changing your job description to suit the more advantageous opportunities in your personal life and through largely self expressive activities.

VIRGO: So much of what transpires this week occurs just beneath the surface for you Virgo. Your emotional realm is astonishing and rich, and a conduit of resonance in your feeling and sensory levels is at an all time high. Immense currents come through a committed or intimate relationship. Amazing developments in the life of a partner affect you profoundly, but may also indicate good fortune. You may have had difficulty trusting this person, or these circumstances, because things have been so erratic. There is also the possibility of extricating yourself from an endemic financial association with this person. Clues on Sunday reveal where reliance on another is not serving your better interests. A relationship that features a child is implicated heavily, and you might have to make a difficult decision regarding your child, or in a relationship with someone you have a child with. Events next weekend allow you to confront the necessary changes and reorganize the situation. Your domestic realm is set to get much much much better, as an advantageous development from mid week (and a ton of news Thursday) point to better developments where your home and personal life are affected. A move or renovation project could really enhance your life enormously. The comfort and privacy you desire will feature largely in these improvements. From next weekend, professional matters start to grab for your attention. Venus transiting the midheaven enhances your reputation considerably and if you have been seeking to change profession or sought a promotion, the next month is favorable to do so. Since you are ruled by Mercury you are well advised to make as much progress as possible here while Venus is helpful and prior to the upcoming retrograde (May 19 – June 12) which will affect this area.

LIBRA: Implications of the eclipse over the weekend in your sign continue to reverberate and spill over for weeks if not months, and many of the dynamic shifts occurring, particularly in regard to relationships continue well into the coming weeks. There may have been fall out, Pluto and Uranus have signaled situations too big to be ignored any longer for years, and you might feel in ways that you are left to built your life from scratch in some arenas. The good news is, this is a real opportunity to rebuild in the way you now see fit for your newly evolved standards and through a self awareness that has accumulated over the last year and a half. Starting over, even from scratch, means getting a second chance, moving on and learning from mistakes. It’s not even as though your judgement was tarnished or prior choices were bad, they just no longer serve who you are and who you seek to become. The saving grace is your growing friends list, real friends, not people you encounter on line or have no real connection to, but that person you could call right now who actually makes time for you and will spend the afternoon reminding you of how far you have come and what your genuine values are while you build up Libra 2.0. Partnerships are still emphasized, and there are powerful and unpredictable influences at work. There is a real potential for breakthrough, and a meeting or merger could be on queue unexpectedly. The thing is, especially in a new relationship, is to take things nice and slow. Don’t try to forecast where this is going or let other people dictate the pace. If you don’t like someone now, you probably won’t like them much more in three months or six months or in a year, and you have learned not to lie to yourself to keep from rocking the boat, right? This applies in both love and business, so trust your instincts, even if you feel shaken up. The awesome news is Venus in Gemini is going to be a major assist from next weekend, and highly pleasurable experiences are on tap shortly.

SCORPIO: Events in March and the reverberations of the recent eclipse have placed you in a very unique space in regard to your daily habits, productivity and routines. This usually falls in the category of “work you do for other people” and has a service oriented theme, but with electrifying Uranus doing the talking here, you have sought to build into your daily life a model and methodology you find genuinely exciting and authentic for you. The degree to which you have succeeded here is easy to measure: think about the week ahead and your commitments, are there things on the schedule you look forward to, or things you really dread having to do? There’s the test. At this point in your life you have the ability to get rid of the things that are not providing satisfaction or even pleasure. Don’t like it? Don’t want to do it? Then get rid of it. It’s really that simple. A conversation or realization over Easter can provide you valuable information about karma you are resolving in this arena. Propitious developments over the upcoming week will either serve to remind you how far you have come in regard to the exciting opportunities you can now engage as a result of changes you were willing to undertake. On the other hand, if your are experiencing conditions that feel redundant or oppressive, this is a clear indication you have further to go on your evolutionary path. You can still access this freedom, as events throughout the week allow dynamic progress, though you must keep an open mind to make the most of these exciting and liberating opportunities. Set your alarm for Wednesday 12:57 pm EST, it’s time to cue the Rocky theme song as Jupiter turns direct in your fame, reputation and profession sector and you are all set for your big comeback in the arena of the goals you choose for yourself. The space you made by removing the things you don’t connect to authentically now enables you to go after what you really want for your career. BAM! Get at it!

SAGITTARIUS: Feelings of joy, abundance and pleasure coupled with an urge to growth are stimulated this week as the grand fire trine lights the skies with brilliant opportunities for Sagittarius. Coming off the recent eclipse, where things may have been a bit tense or dicey (especially in relation to finances) you quickly see a turnaround, especially as Jupiter resumes direct motion mid week. For you, more so than anyone, enhancement of genuine life enjoyment culminates when Jupiter turns direct. This is only one of many fortuitous opportunities that emerge, your creativity and romantic possibilities are also triggered as Sun and Mercury transit Uranus. Exciting circumstances may open up here, though the niggling financial issues still seem to play a more endemic role and need to be remedied. Some of these issues can be connected to intrigues. These contacts can blow the lid off a deeply rooted secret connected to your financials. Saturday is auspicious for coming to some kind of determination. Work and productivity matters are still a priority as well, though Venus will come to put a bright and romantic glow around your relationships from next Saturday. Use this period to shore up your alliances, as a Mercury retrograde phase set to occur in this area May – June can be a bit more of a challenge featuring numerous mixed signals and reversals. Make a good impression now, as the good ones will be willing to stick it out with you when the road gets a bit more rocky. Thursday, Thursday, Thursday, it just doesn’t get any better than this as the Moon transits your sign and you feel like you can take on anything. You can! So jump in, with Jupiter direct you are awakened and ready to go.

CAPRICORN: You may not be completely in charge or circumstances (and certainly not other people) as you would like to be, but the good news is you are poised to make progress with newly found confidence and motivation to move with towards your goal post and destiny with the means available to you. The domestic scene is also a scene of a great deal of activity, and only you know if your family or flat mates or providing you with energy and enthusiasm or otherwise just draining you by creating chaos. It’s probably a combination of both, and it you have sought to make changes to remedy a situation that is not completely living up to what you want and need, this may be the time to make necessary modifications. A situation or conversation over Easter reveals a need to address a karma over and done with, though the conflict may escalate throughout the week, as Pluto is signaled and you are forced to really consider what you have to let go of to make room for the new. Change and transformation to this area have been endemic for years, now an opportunity to do it comes clear. The window that opens when you close the door is the way through to deeply passionate engagement that allows you to create trust with another person again. As Jupiter returns direct mid week you find your way back to sensational developments that did not completely fulfill their promise from last Fall into Winter. There is a positive theme of merging with another to create a new whole, either through an intimate relationship or a significant business merger. You can truly embrace your personal power over next weekend, the closing quarter moon in your sign indicates a profound self awareness tying into events triggered at the beginning of the year.

AQUARIUS: Your social realm is brilliantly lit, and there are substantial opportunities for real enhancements to your relationships and connectivity in the upcoming phase. Jupiter direct offers a really incredible ambience for establishing a relationship through which you will grow and develop new perspectives. A genuine feeling of enthusiasm accompanies this transit, and you experience it most directly through a one on one connection. This mutually effects a business association as it does a love relationship. An acquaintance or mode of communication on the other hand, may have outlived it’s time, revealed by events or a conversation over Easter. Exciting social events and unexpected detours in your daily activities this week can trigger very stimulating meetings and exchanges. These may even occur during the even the most routine of daily events. It’s also an amazing phase for writing and learning new techniques through course work, though this appears to be short lived. A crash course or 2 – 3 day seminar is the most effective use of this energy. It’s also likely a bolt of inspiration strikes and you find a solution to a problem that has been holding you back for sometime. Venus in Gemini from next Saturday offers a genuinely pleasurable climate for self expression and cultivating a love relationship. (When Venus hooks up with Jupiter in a few weeks you can expect nothing less than fireworks!) An ending is featured next weekend, a part of your innermost private existence is ready to be relinquished. You get nudges towards this release throughout the week, hone in on your instincts, they’ll tell you what is what.

PISCES: The exciting developments this week effect what you make (earnings) and what you do with it (values). This has been a very erratic and at times challenging feature – you seek a source of income that feels authentic to you, but there has been volatility where both income and expenses are concerned. The recent eclipse escalated the stakes and sped up the timetable, and possibly brought fourth a huge opportunity associated with earnings, or potentially through the assistance or backing by a partner or institution. Events throughout the week will continue to build upon and illuminate the themes of how and how much you can benefit from taking an experimental if not entirely unprecedented approach towards creating your revenue stream. You may have a brilliant epiphany at some point that allows you to employ a whole new strategy in regard to earnings, though equally unexpected circumstances in the form of both expenses and opportunities, will force you to think quickly and make adjustments on the fly. Your inventiveness will provide you with the right answers, just stay tuned into to all the possibilities! In this way you learn to trust yourself. Bad financial habits may reveal themselves on Sunday, keep an eye out to these. By Friday you can come up workable agenda or seal the deal at a new job, et cet. Jupiter direct midweek genuinely enhances your productivity. As the traditional ruler of your house of career, you have the ability in this phase to marry your work life to your long range goals, and indications Thursday will yield significant clues as to how well this is working out for you. If you have been in a job disconnected to your chosen profession or not abetting progress towards them, you can make a gracious departure and find something more appropriate to what you seek for the future. This is also a very auspicious time for attending to health matters and generating new regimens, habits or routines that allow you to improve well being.

STARGAZER FORECAST APRIL 2015

March saw the end of a way of life for many of us, it was time to clear the way for the new and radically improved which we’ll come into this month. The positive influence of Jupiter direct at 12′ 35″ Leo on the 8th of the month cannot be understated. The growth and emancipation we have been seeking has sufficiently gestated, we’ve spent a great deal of time since last December considering what, where and how to reach our destination. At the end of that rainbow lies expansion of our enterprises, relationships, joy and fulfillment as well as the most positive expression of our generosity. The last few months were theoretical in nature: what lies ahead, and how do we get there? Though frustrating, the appraisal of what was and was not successful from the period of late Summer into Fall (2014) was both necessary and illuminating. Saturn testing the waters of Sagittarius added some structure to this philosophical inquiry, and allowed for the integration of strategy to inform our next moves, which will transpire this month.

Challenges from planets in Scorpio hindered progress during the period last Fall, as we were dealing with some pretty heavy stuff where relationships and money were concerned, and transformative events (November was pretty critical,) relegated our spiritual growth and personal potential to circumstances that demanded attention. Rested and refreshed, we emerge awake and engaged. The transit of the Sun through Aries is brilliantly timed and acts as a willing collaborator to the very auspicious developments occurring throughout April. Thursday April 2nd sees the trine of Sun to Jupiter from 12 Aries/Leo. See it as the Sun giving Jupiter a little wake up nudge, calling the sleeping giant to come out and play. Saturn will also harmonize Juno in Leo on this day, so making a commitment to someone or something will be beneficial and support the long range goals. Mercury, too, jumps into Aries (from March 30th) and lends a hand through communication. By the time of the Sun – Mercury conjunction (19 Aries) on the 10th, we see a clear course ahead!

The Lunar Eclipse, 14′ 24″ Libra, falling on April 4th will catapult us into the future, ready or not! Unlike the eclipse last year, which fell in the cross hairs of the Cardinal Cross, and elicited a pretty stormy phase of activity, this eclipse is reconciled through a harmonious link between the Sun and Moon to Jupiter (trine Sun, sextile Moon), so we are getting support on both ends from the benevolent contact made at this time. (The placement of Jupiter in your current chart is crucial to understanding where this benevolent assistance comes from.) The prickly Uranus – Pluto issues will continue to tie in, but the strength of that alinement is dissipating quickly.

Lunar nodes continue to activate a need to reconcile our independence with the evolutionary emphasis on partnership, by creating bonds with others to work mutually towards shared goals, enterprises or through love. Strong signals on the 1st (Sun conjunct South Node – 10 Aries) and 5th (Mercury conjunct South Node – 9 Aries) will point out how successfully we are attending to this, or conversely, serving an outmoded agenda. The Nodes, like the Moon, represent and function within a highly subjective space, guarded and hidden, sometimes even to ourselves. With contacts to the South Node, the liminal space between subconscious and conscious becomes bridged and hidden, negative patterns can become illuminated. This can be instructive for recognizing these limitations, but there can be a possibility of subconscious sabotage where we feel circumstances have become too narrow or limiting, as well. Events occurring or awareness triggered on these dates, or those that transpired March 2nd or 7th all tapped into this with everything being brought home during the eclipse.

It is in this liminal space that the potent nature of eclipses is most evident. As the South Node is activated, we find that certain impulses towards necessary endings are triggered. Again, this can happen right beneath the radar of our consciousness, and that we maneuver for these changes whether we are aware of our behavior or not. That job, relationship, or whatever – that is past it’s expiration date will come to an end, and the Nodes have been actively indicating this for a while. The eclipse is the catalyst for finalization. While events can feel disruptive, when we are able to stand away from them a few months or even a year down the line we realize that change (usually represented by endings by a Lunar Eclipse) had to occur.

Mars from Taurus (March 31st) offers a stable underpinning, energy is steady and persevering during this transit. Very constructive efforts can be made through out the month, with the 21st highly instrumental in the developments of the month over all. The New Moon in Aries on the 18th offers vitalizing awareness to new beginnings, where and how we should proceed. More on the other transits and aspects as they occur! ENJOY your month!

STARGAZER WEEKLY HOROSCOPES March 29 – April 4:

**Get the most out of your forecast by reading for your Sun sign as well as Ascendant, or Rising Sign. You can get your chart for free on astro.com**

ARIES: Things get far more interesting and enjoyable, as you feel more communicative and seek to share your thoughts with others. A love relationship or creative prospect that has been sitting in the queue since December begins to send signals of a vital reawakening. Mars – Taurus will make you feel more grounded and pragmatic. You are willing to take things one solid step forward at a time and willing to genuinely invest yourself in your efforts. Events and commitments made Thursday will prove valuable and enduring, which ties neatly into this slow and steady theme. Of course an eclipse accenting your sign can precipitate a massive development within a partnership, one that has either been on the way out for a long time may come to an end, or offer up a whole new relationship that opens your heart and mind to incredible cosmic/karmic potentials. Someone you meet in this period may feel distinctly connected to your destiny, and plays a major role in your future, either as a business partner or an eventual true love interest. April 7th also reveals a stunning piece of information or development around this, so keep your ears and eyes peeled. If you find yourself on the fare thee well side of the spectrum and endings are in tow, Jupiter will boost your confidence and enhance your sense of humor and perspective. With Mercury in your sign for the next 2 weeks, connectivity is enhanced and you can readily articulate your goals and desires. Thursday is optimal for negotiations or speaking with an impact.

TAURUS: Very stimulating romantic vibrations continue to be on tap, and there can be a real intensification of commitment or intimacy Monday. Mars from your sign on Tuesday will encourage bold and courageous movement for Taurus. This also stimulates the libido, perfect timing. Otherwise, a lot has been stirring around in the subconscious realm, now you have the wherewithal to come out of the clouds and get your feet back on the ground and into motion on a very personal goal or endeavor. Mercury comes to occupy this place, connecting to the Sun, so the hidden dimensions and a need for reflection and privacy will endure for a few more weeks, though you will notice a real shift in your energy level this week. Events or conversations on Thursday will be highly revealing, as your own unbeknownst motives shine through. This is a productive time for a personal inquiry into your deepest desires and what really makes you tick. The eclipse next weekend portends a health or work related change, and there may be a really substantial shift towards becoming a more valuable or productive member at your workplace, a new assignment or the completion of one that sets you on the course for a whole new job.

GEMINI: Mars comes to occupy the hidden, interior realm of your subconscious realm, joining Venus for a sultry, behind the scenes rendezvous. You can tap into your most forbidden fantasies and desires under this alinement, though feelings of ethereality and spirituality are also indicated. Endings may also become a focus in the upcoming weeks. Baggage you have held onto past it’s expiry is up for review, and it’s time to shed the past in favor of the future. Your romantic life gleams with promise this weekend, as an eclipse stimulates a promising affair of the heart, or mutually triggers an urgent desire for self expression. The people you share your life with, friends and groups in particular play an interesting role in what develops. On one hand a social event or occasion can bring you the introduction of a lifetime, on the other hand your association with your go to group of friends could be holding you back from making a meaningful connection with someone one on one. Thursday is great for breaking the ice and a groundbreaking conversation if you need to sort through some relationship dynamics. Reaching out to others comes naturally and easily in this phase.

CANCER: You continue to get highly supportive vibrations this week towards your professional aims. Over the next two weeks, there will be a great deal of communication within your professional realm, a new position that came into frame during March may be gaining momentum. Thursday is spectacular for negotiating a raise or salary connected to your job or a new position/promotion. Mars comes to emphasize friends and networks over the coming weeks, amping up the social life and urging you to extend your connectivity and group dynamics. Sharing the work load, and finding people who can support your dreams and aspirations will be a source of energy and stimulation. The eclipse over the weekend will signal shifting arrangements in regard to the residence and domestic life. Ongoing changes in circumstances here (likely influenced by issues connected to your career or within a partnership) over the last two years will finally come connected and present an opportunity – you may have desired this, or it may come on totally unexpectedly! It seems that your earnings act as a very positive feature, enhancing your ability to shift circumstances at home in your favor. Relocation to accept a prestigious work opportunity may also be a factor here.

LEO: Pay close attention to how you feel on Monday, the Moon transiting your sign sensitizes you, and you begin to feel rumblings of positive changes set to occur within yourself and your environment. Mars from Taurus on Tuesday signals a shift in energy towards achievement and accomplishment, as you design it for yourself. The atmosphere will be competitive and enlivening. Those who challenge you within your sphere of influence actually push you to do your best. A compliment from an associate early in the week reminds you of who you are and what you care about about. Thursday is stellar for promoting yourself and your ideas. Your boundless enthusiasm is beginning to resurface and you can be very effective in communication and PR work done at this time. The eclipse Saturday will likely bring substantial changes to your day to day life, communication or within a relationship with a sibling. The upcoming weeks will likely be very busy and you do well to get out into your community and focus on the people in your neighborhood. If you have been trying to make time to commit to a blog or writing project, this can also prove an auspicious time.

VIRGO: You engage passionately with friends and loved ones this week. An emphasis on commitment and intimate relationships that engender trust are highlighted as compelling developments, particularly on Monday and Thursday, bring you closer to your heart’s desire. Mars from Taurus will give you considerable energy. There is a desire to connect with others socially or even towards a group endeavor at this time. Reach out to those you may have lost touch with – while you have benefitted from privacy over the prior months, you may have lost contact with a few people who would probably love to catch up with you. A transit of the Moon through your sign mid week is harmonious, and you can find recreation and leisure activities very enjoyable. The eclipse Saturday portends some significant shifts in your financial affairs, both the money you earn and that of a spouse or parter will be implicated over the coming period. There is a very positive potential to find a more independent route to financial security, as you may have become wary of any reliance on others to carry their end of the burden. Clues mid week reveal the direction you should take.

LIBRA: With an eclipse upcoming in your sign, nothing else really matters, but of course you and possibly your key partnership(s). Life changing events have likely already signaled the direction of sweeping transformation (a story that has played out over the prior year) with more in store from this weekend and over the next 6 months. Much of this has to do with a process of personal redefinition that has directly implicated your partnerships. Endings and beginnings feature largely during such a potent phase as this and with Mars in Taurus, (your house of sex, death and transformation) a relationship can heat up quickly as you address your evolving security needs. This can apply mutually to a business or love relationship, though the key ingredient here is TRUST and the extent to which you have learned to trust yourself will be reflected in how successfully you can navigate the upcoming terrain and receive the cooperation of others. The Sun continues to amplify attention towards commitment and relationship, with Mercury joining in the conversation (and suggesting there will be many) from the beginning of the week. Midweek is a good time in which to dispose of any worn out models of conduct in a relationship. Uranus is advocating for authentic involvement, and while this may bring disruptive people into your orbit, substantial growth is indicated within the realm of how and with whom you are learning to relate to.

SCORPIO: Clues at the beginning of the week signal your professional aspirations are about to awaken from dormancy. You feel both positive and content that the efforts you have put forth since the middle of last year may be ready to bear some fruit. Even more astonishing indications are offered Thursday, and a pervasive sense of enthusiasm and excitement really begins to precipitate. Events at this time offer a sense of assurance that the choices of the prior weeks and months were correct. Something is relinquished in this phase, and there may be a need to mourn or reflect on it’s passing. A part of you, your life and your consciousness has truly come to and end, and it is time to let it go. Events mid week will signal this, with the eclipse Saturday bringing everything home. You’ve been quite aware of this transformation for a long time, as it has played out in the deepest part of your psyche for over a year. In this period you realize, perhaps, it’s not just time to say goodbye, but that is has already left. With every breath you release it. Acknowledgment of it’s departure may prove to be more equivocally more significant than it’s actual demise was. You may actually be relieved, especially when you become aware that what was left behind was limiting your perspective or diminishing your self worth. You are finally beginning to see you have what it takes. Go there instead.

SAGITTARIUS: Positive developments continue to coalesce this week, enhancing your self expression or even a love relationship with someone from a distance. Recent events stimulated remarkable creative urges, Mercury now enters the picture and you can easily articulate these feelings through art, writing or pleasurable enterprises. Thursday is phenomenal for taking on a new project related to your creativity or self expression. The ambience is also ripe for expressing romantic feelings to someone you care for. Mars in Taurus from Tuesday makes this a good period in which to address health and life management issues. You can effectively create a new workout routine or tackle a project that requires energy and motivation. If you have been seeking employment, this is a good time to push for a new position. Monday is particularly positive to find a job that offers a lucrative income. The eclipse on Saturday effects your social milieu, you may see significant progress within a group you work with, and be putting the finishing touches on a project or even gain admission to a prestigious club or organization.

CAPRICORN: There are positive indications this week to make a merger of heart, body and mind as transits and Mars in Taurus stimulate erotic and sensual undertones. Pleasure and romance feature quite favorably, though a financial agreement may also be on the queue. Prospects towards arrangements of mutual benefit (business or pleasure) have been on hold since the end of last year are finally gearing up for an exciting new development. Thursday’s enticing alinements allow you to bring beneficial energy into your domestic realm via an intimate agreement. An eclipse in the house of fame, career and status points to a significant reckoning in your professional life. It might be time to step up to the plate and make your aspirations come true, or you might reach a long worked towards milestone of achievement around this time. A tense square to Pluto in your sign suggests you might be a bit obstinate towards claiming the opportunities that arise around this point, though mutually a spouse or benefactor features largely here and a substantial sum of money might be a part of the picture. A sudden change (Uranus) to the domestic arrangements also factors here.

AQUARIUS: Feelings within your closest relationships will be amplified this week, as your spouse or a business partner is coming into a phase of success and you feel very proud of their accomplishments. There may be cause for celebration and you can circle Thursday as a great day for festivities. Communication is vitalized and enhances your social life and day to day experiences. This is a positive period for catching up with friends. The eclipse next weekend ties into this and you may feel an urge to travel or embark on an adventure that allows you to expand your horizons. Domestic arrangements continue to benefit from the presence of Venus, Monday is awesome for attending to a redecoration project. Mars comes into the picture on Tuesday, and you may feel compelled to renovate or even move house if your current situation is not suiting you. There can be a great deal of energy put fourth in the home over the next six weeks, and some rearrangement of priorities will occur if this area has been neglected. Mars infuses energy, but is also the God of Warfare, so if relationships with the family or flatmates has become contentious, there can be ardent emotional exchanges where the air needs to be cleared.

PISCES: Your definitely on the right track financially, and there can be a lucrative upside through work and even a promotion on queue for you. Pay attention to clues on Thursday as very positive energy is stimulated for both work and professional aspirations. Mercury influencing this area suggest a good period for communication or that you may be negotiating for a prestigious position in your chosen field of work. Your ability to articulate what you genuinely value over the upcoming weeks enhances your position considerably. Your social life is also incredibly stimulating and events and excursions will provide pleasure and allow you to make valuable connections. Monday is exquisite for for making an enticing romantic contact with someone. You may discover this person while in the midst of the most routine activity in your day to day life. The upcoming eclipse on Saturday highlights your most intimate life and can be the tipping point in a close relationship or for a pivotal financial agreement. If you have been seeking a loan or other form of outside assistance, this may come through for you now. Someone connected to you through your work lends a helping hand.

STARGAZER ASTROLOGY FORECAST MARCH 22 – 28, 2015

Sun in Aries: Return of the Emperor

A much easier week is in store, and productive developments offer assurance that we are moving in the right direction. Venus continues it’s transit of Taurus amplifying sensuality, creativity and love. Venus sextile Neptune on Tuesday encourages a stellar romantic ambience, as sensitivity to the most gentle nuances is heightened and there is a lovely serendipity stimulated within a rendezvous or meeting. The Moon transits Taurus Sunday into Monday, augmenting these harmonious vibrations, particularly on Sunday Eve. Towards the end of the week, Venus square Jupiter will prove pivotal  within our relationships and there may be a tendency to overdo it, either in a romantic alliance or in expensive purchases. From Taurus – Leo there is a genuine urge towards decadence and pleasure, (and some drama!). The atmosphere mutually encourages generosity, probably the better manifestation of the energy.

Communication is featured at the beginning of the week as Mercury sextiles Pluto on Sunday. From the Stargazer Atlas: “We can dig deep today and seek to really understand the underlying truth. Communication will tend to sensitive, secretive or profound subjects, and through conversation and correspondence we can discover the hidden essence of a subject or person. Research, investigation and getting a point across with conviction all benefit from this energy. Likewise, if you need to have a serious conversation, or get to the bottom of an issue, this is a good time to do so.”

Sun trine Saturn (4 Aries/Leo) on Wednesday offers a very stabilizing environment in which we can continue to work towards our long range endeavors. We begin to see the fruition of goals and initiatives made around November 17th, 2014, during the conjunction phase at 25 Scorpio. Saturn’s harsher realities combine fruitfully within our self expression (the Sun) and we get assurance and results that the efforts we put fourth around that time are producing a positive outcome. This is a good time to attend to tasks that require a patient and methodical approach. Meanwhile, the Moon from Gemini harmonizes Jupiter and Uranus, stimulating the rest of the Grand Fire trine, making this a spectacular day for conversations or social activities centered around creative discovery or discourse. There is a genuine sense of progress and we can enlarge the scope of our activities in a way that will endure over time.

The 2nd Quarter Moon Friday (6′ 19″ Cancer) taps into the gentle harmonic being stimulated by Venus and Neptune. Our determination to make progress on the initiatives we encountered during the eclipse last week will be aided by a creative approach and soft touch. A highly empathic and compassionate vibration will underscore our contacts and activities. From there sensitivities become aroused as the Cancer Moon makes more abrasive aspects to Uranus – Pluto – Mars through Saturday. We are indeed making substantial progress, but will be made aware of contentious influences that are still a part of the landscape. One week down until the Libra eclipse, this is the time to shore up for the really dynamic changes on tap for April 4th!

STARGAZER WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

**Get the most out of your forecast by reading for your Sun sign as well as Ascendant, or Rising Sign. You can get your chart for free on astro.com**

ARIES: You genuinely begin to come into your own this week as the Sun transits your sign and signs of life begin to emerge again. Mid week is stellar for making a long term commitment to an educational goal or assignment in publishing, media or even teaching. Anything that allows for expansion of your perspective or range of activities benefits you now. Talking things out with friends and siblings will stimulate ideas or even a good suggestion. Romance is highlighted but also a bit tricky in this phase. There may be propensity to fall fast and hard for someone who stimulates your hidden desires. Slow and steady is the way to go. Domestic matters become emphasized at the end of the week. Peace and solitude offer a lovely respite moving into the weekend, though you might have to get your house in order before you can address your more personal and fundamental needs.

TAURUS: You are loving life and it would seem it loves you back right now. The beginning of the week is very favorable for making positive social connections and you may even discover a wonderful romantic prospect if you mix and mingle. Your natural abilities shine brilliantly under such auspices and there are really enticing opportunities for self expression in this phase. A financial matter can be resolved mid week, dealings behind the scenes play a role in this and someone may assist you in a secret manner. Intuition is also very strong in this phase and you do very well to pay attention to the subtle clues around you, particularly where a source of revenue or the future of an intimate relationship is concerned. The end of the week is favorable for social activities, and you get a great deal of positive reinforcement through your contacts. An urge to indulgence, particularly where your domestic life is concerned, could feature at the end of the week. Carefully consider a luxury purchase for the home before you commit.

GEMINI: With so much sensational activity having occurred in your professional life last week, and so many new directions to follow up on, you might not be certain of what’s up from down at the moment. It seems a close partner or your friends help keep you anchored and grounded in this phase, with a real conciliatory moment mid week demonstrating who’s really got your back. Romance on the other hand could be percolating behind the scenes, and it’s likely that things are heating up with a secret lover. Sharing your fantasies and secrets with this person feels oh so good, though you might feel like spilling the beans Friday, saying a bit too much and blowing the lid off the whole operation. You do better if you can wait another week or two to make a long standing commitment – the incendiary devices set off earlier this month still reverberate and it’s worth while to see where all the bits fall into place. Financials require a degree of appraisal at the end of the week, you’ll likely question if your heart and soul are really invested in your financial – professional life. Well is it?

CANCER: A far more gentle climate emerges out of the chaos/creation/catharsis of the prior week, much to your satisfaction. The early part of the week is really enticing for hanging out with buds and catching up with a romantic interest. A date or get together goes swimmingly Monday or Tuesday. Mid week is really wonderful for cleaning house in the professional arena and getting back on track towards a prestigious new role or assignment. You feel reinvigorated to take on a new project and your sense of timing is really quite astonishing. Trust you hunches, as they are right on track. End of the week, the focus is on you and your presentation. Many changes have and continue to occur, this is a good time to orient yourself towards what you really want to see come out of this period of transition. A message from someone far away can make you feel great about the directions you are choosing, so reach out if you need to clarify your perspective. There can be a tendency to unnecessary expense at the end of the week, so watch your pocketbook if funds are slim. You may wish to indulge as there will be many demands on Friday, slipping into something nice might be just what the doctor ordered.

LEO: Substantial, but delightful shifts continue to transpire in your professional world, and very significant developments at the beginning of the week spell out the secret to your success. You are enjoying a favorable climate to promote your aspirations and meet with the approval of not only your peers, but those who will get you seen and on the map. A negotiation that takes place over the weekend can offer really substantial financial rewards. Keep your feelers out there. Watch a tendency towards boastful behavior on Friday, no one likes a braggart! It doesn’t mean we aren’t as delighted and proud of your achievements as you are. Spreading the wealth is a far more enticing way in which to show off how far you’ve made it. Mid week sees the culmination of a long and steady endeavor in a creative project or romantic endeavor. You may get word from a distance that gives you a sense of assurance in this regard, and this is the appropriate to time to negotiate or even make a commitment, though things may not all come together until the end of July. Your private and esoteric self needs a bit of a tune up, which will require address at the end of the week. Outside pressures not withstanding, this is a good time to center within, even in the light of disruptions.

VIRGO: The Venus in Taurus pleasure center is in full effect, and you have the green light to motivate yourself towards some enticing escapades. The beginning of the week is especially romantic, and if you can get away from your usual stomping grounds and broaden your horizons with a spouse or partner you will find a delicious opportunity to rekindle the romance. A frank discussion at the beginning of the week clarifies things that may have been left unsaid, particularly in relation to children, whether you have them or not. Mid week is positive for domestic and shared financial arrangements. You may find your partner comes into a profitable period which also favors you. It’s also possible a legacy, grant or loan helps you to reconcile your residential matters. This is a very harmonious period in which you will feel at ease in a way that has evaded you for a very long time. Things are falling into place, and this makes you feel good! A tendency to splurge or overdo at the end of the week may follow though you’ll do your best to curb that tendency and rather spend time with your friends and allies.

LIBRA: The pleasure principal remains strong, and someone you care for (or are coming around to) plays a really significant role in your satisfaction, the beginning of the week is incredibly enticing for such an interlude. Your attention may be riveted, but don’t forget to address your personal needs and issues. With an eclipse culminating in your sign in another week, there are still some significant turning points on the horizon. You can seek to stabilize a commitment mid week successfully, an agreement or contract negotiated at this time will be enduring. Wit and wisdom will assist to bring success in your collaborative endeavors. A professional emphasis comes in towards the end of the week, and there will be a reckoning of sorts if you have been trying get on a new career path, especially within a creative field or industry. Events at the end of last week began a positive new chapter of growth in your work life, and you can motivate to those opportunities on Friday. A partner may not see eye to eye with you about the choices you are making, so be ready to stand your ground if you must. There may be cause to celebrate, just don’t over do it! A propensity for indulgence is indicated for Friday night.

SCORPIO: Exciting new advances at work continue to be emphasized and mid week is truly spectacular to find and take on a lucrative assignment. Good indications from the end of last week continue to precipitate into exciting new opportunities, though your mind is more likely on the delightful and enticing romantic developments that are also on queue. The beginning of the week is really phenomenal for cultivating a new connection. A transit of the Moon from your house of partners stimulates an already enticing ambience, revealing a beautiful and harmonious exchange through your connection to another. These are remarkable, “once in a year” aspects, and though this story continues to unfold through the next few months, what occurs now can only be described as magical. Clear the air and your intentions at the beginning of the week. Your voice and conviction is strong and you can assert yourself in a way that works people over to your perspective. By the end of the week, you may find a publishing or educational goal becomes emphasized. Your ideas now need translate across the boundaries of your homeland, and you will have to find a way in which to express yourself that can be understood by those at a distance. Your imagination and creative abilities help enormously. A partner (either in business or pleasure) aids your professional aspirations enormously at this time as well. This may be off putting initially, but consider the offer, as it may take you quite far.

SAGITTARIUS: Feelings of vitality and excitement continue to escalate, though you are willing to take a thoughtful and measured approach towards cultivating an enduring commitment to your creativity and pleasure pursuits. Mid week you get a strong signal that you are moving in the right direction, and feel ready to take a project or relationship to the next level. Good developments on the job and for your health and productivity share the focus this week, and very positive opportunities may be on offer early in the week. A work from home business connected to your creative leanings may tie into this and your imagination will be of great value within a new assignment. Relationships and commitment may be the focal point from mid week, a partnership is likely to bring a breath of excitement into your life. Financial commitments and particularly shared expenses or resources will require appraisal towards the end of the week. Modifying your budget is integral to making your dreams come true next week.

CAPRICORN: A strong influence towards pleasure and creative pursuits is featured at the beginning of the week. A significant conversation over the weekend allows you to clarify your position with conviction and assurance. You tap into good vibrations at the beginning of the week as some of the more vexing and confrontational episodes of the first part of the month begin to recede into fading memory. With renewed conviction and a vision for the future, you make considerable progress on your goals. Wednesday is spectacular for making an enduring commitment that will harmonize your long range goals and current activities. These are most likely taking place behind the scenes or within a very personal space. On a soul level you feel assurance that has eluded you for some time that things are moving in the right direction. The end of the week will encourage you to really examine a relationship and to what extent it is serving (or not) your broader desires and evolutionary mission. An eclipse in another week portends a significant professional development, though a partner may not see eye to eye with you, particularly if you are taking what looks to be a considerable risk. Stay in tune with your needs, as a development at this time could be favorable for your financial situation and key you into resources you did not realize were available.

AQUARIUS: Infectiously positive vibes continue to affect your domestic and social life, and finding a way to combine them will be the biggest challenge you confront this week. Really gorgeous developments attached to your residence will be on tap at the beginning on Sunday. You can effectively use this time to remedy or beautify your environment accordingly, Tuesday is phenomenal for putting the finishing touch on a redecoration project, or merely to acquire an object or decorative item that enhances your appreciation of your personal space, and whether you live in a palace or a shoe box, a little can go a long way. Rose colored hues stimulate positive vibrations in your home. Steadying vibrations mid week remind you how far you have come, as well as how far you have to go within your alliances and social networks. This is a good time to link up with a prestigious organization, or to circulate and mingle with those who share (and can assist you in reaching) your hopes, dreams or aspirations. Friendships feel genuine and enduring in this period, and you really come to know who has your back. The work life balance is still in flux, evidenced by a consideration you must make towards the end of the week regarding your health and productivity. More big news on tap from next week, so keep things malleable where possible.

PISCES: Really intriguing social opportunities are on offer and you’ll do your best to make the most of invitations, particularly in the beginning of the week. A real heart to heart connection on Tuesday taps right into your deepest romantic longings. Someone with real soul mate potential could fall into your lap most unexpectedly while you are in the middle of your most routine day to day errands! You can also use this phenomenal energy for creative purposes or to simply speak from the heart. A poetic resonance coats your words in meaning and beauty. A financial – professional emphasis comes in from mid week, and developments Wednesday demonstrate that all the hard work of the prior months was definitely worthwhile. Cash money dollars are your reward for putting in the time. In the wake of recent, likely disruptive, events, this is just the reassurance you need that everything is going to be OK. Things get a bit more personal over the quarter Moon phase on Friday, and sensitivity surrounding a romantic relationship, (where *exactly* is this going?) can push your buttons if you aren’t sure where you stand. A work assignment likely cramps your social calendar at this time as well, and there could be a slightly tense moment at the end of the week while you regain your composure.

STARGAZER ASTROLOGY FORECAST March 15th – 21st, 2015

ASTROLOGICAL NEW YEAR 2015!!!

For a personalized reading based on your chart, contact STARGAZER at stargazerastroatlas@gmail.com

If you found the first few months to be a downer, fret not! The astrological New Year begins on Friday at 6:45 pm (EST) with an exciting dual transit of Moon and Sun through Aries very shortly after a Pisces Solar Eclipse, signaling a massive shift in consciousness. Vitalization, passion and the revival of spirit come into frame brilliantly, after we cross the final hurdle of the last Uranus – Pluto square, that is! The overall theme is one of renewal and beginnings, regardless of where you are in the world, and whether it is Spring or Fall Equinox where you live.

Two really major factors predominate the astro-scape this week signifying a pivotal change of direction for some, and a total break through, or break down for others. We get to the final of seven Uranus – Pluto squares that have been occurring between Capricorn (Pluto) and Aries (Uranus) since 2012 on Monday. Shifting and challenging conditions have made certain elements of our lives very difficult to pin down, and there is a palpable necessity at this time to make a transformative shift in priorities. Situations on the world stage continue to escalate, as circumstances implicating society at large or within our personal sphere may completely implode, though if so, this situation has likely been percolating for years. The area of your life you have sought to revolutionize (Uranus,) since 2011 has been challenged by big picture circumstances that may have left you feeling completely powerless (Pluto). It has been an exhausting process, but of course, there can be a substantial breakthrough at this time as well, though events will likely take us pretty far out of our comfort zone regardless of the final destination. Transformation and adaptation is required under these auspices, though complete regeneration will be the reward. Take things one step at a time if matters reach a crisis point and keep daily life as uncomplicated as possible for the time being. The dates of the prior aspects were:

June 6-July 9, 2012; 8 Degrees Aries/Capricorn
September 18-October 1, 2012; 6 -7 Degrees
May 15-Jun 1, 2013; 11 Degrees
October 17-November 15, 2013; 9 Degrees
April 12-29, 2014; 12 – 13 Degrees
November 26-December 27, 2014; 12 Degrees
March 11-28, 2015; 15 Degrees

As you can see, there is a pretty tight focus here between 8 – 15 degrees, so if you have chart factors here (or equally in Libra or Cancer) you were far more personally impacted by these transits. We’ll continue to feel the resonance of this final one for a few more months, as the Libra eclipse next month, then the Capricorn/Cancer Lunations in July, continue to stir up some dynamic indications connected to the upheaval and cathartic intonations of events likely to occur at this final phase. There can be pressure or tension from an outside source, and even outright power struggles or a very confrontational episode with Pluto involved. Mutually, this can be the catalyst for changes we have sought since 2012 and offer a quantum leap forward. Indications we got, or efforts put fourth last week, during the transit of Mars to this critical alinement, will be consequential here, as will the transit of the Sun on the 6th – 7th in April.

At the far end of the week, we receive a Solar Eclipse at 29′ 27″ Pisces (Friday March 20th at 5:36am EST), the first of a series on the Pisces/Virgo axis that will continue through Spring of 2017. The Nodal axis (our evolutionary consciousness) will shift onto Virgo (North Node Future)/Pisces (South Node Past) in October of this year. Eclipses have a much greater personal impact if they fall in a six degree range of an angle or planet in your chart, and it is also worthwhile to see if the Nodes recently have changed astrological houses (based on your rising sign) as this will be the first eclipse occurring in this house, triggering dynamic flows of energy and ushering a vital new beginning in this area for your life, (although the South Node is still transiting Aries). Events feel fateful and we may encounter new relationships that feel incredibly karmic at this time. This particular eclipse harmonizes exclusively with Saturn, recently retrograde at 4 Sagittarius, so initiations and endeavors made in the coming two weeks tie right into our long range goals and enterprises. With Saturn hanging on in trine to the degree of the eclipse from mid June – mid September, it’s fair to say what begins to develop now has a pretty significant role in the overall story we will ultimately tell in 2015. This is a harmonizing angle, so we receive support and reinforcement for this goal for a good duration, though it will require discipline and hard work to bring our endeavors to a successful outcome.

The Sun bursts into the pioneering dominion of Aries about 12 hours after the Eclipse, beginning the astrological New Year. We’ll seek to take direct action towards the goals and objectives we have recently become aware of and seek a vital and effective outlet for the energy stimulated over the next month. Mercury lags behind, lolling about in Pisces after a stimulating, but lengthy visit and retrograde period in Aquarius. A connection to Saturn early in the week may trigger feelings of pessimism as a conversation or realization indicates a necessity to come into realignment to reality. (Count Monday out for your major initiatives, if you can!). Midweek is highly inspirational, as a Moon, Mercury and Neptune all conspire sensationally for a creative undertaking harmonizing intellect and intuition beautifully – it is possible to really connect to the spirit and visionary realm or express the deepest emotions, perhaps even wordlessly. Music and the aesthetic forms will all provide deep stimulation.

Venus moves into sensual Taurus on Tuesday, and we’ll seek to ground our romantic and creative impulses into a tangible form. Taurus – Venus offers practicality and stability for our financial affairs as well as stimulating a desire towards accumulation and possessions. The aesthetic nature is refined and the material world, as well as the sensations it engenders, provides pleasure and respite during an otherwise potentially tumultuous week. We have the option to walk the garden path and engage productively with patience and determination now.

STARGAZER WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

**Get the most out of your forecast by reading for your Sun sign as well as Ascendant, or Rising Sign. You can get your chart for free on astro.com**

ARIES: There can be a breakthrough in your profession at this time, and where you have remained determined to transform your responsibilities in order to achieve status, you may find the pay off comes in at this time. You might also find that your desire for freedom is challenged by your career obligations or restrictive circumstances. A conflict you experience personally could galvanize you towards a fundamental reorientation to a goal that is bigger than yourself, perhaps connected to a social or revolutionary cause that motivates you to action as a result of your own developing consciousness. Those of you born between April 1 -9 or with angles or planets falling between 10 – 18 degrees of the sign will feel this most acutely. Venus leaves your sign Tuesday, indicating a favorable period to address your values and earnings, perhaps finding good fortune or new opportunities associated with creativity, the arts or through a partner may be featured over the next month. Intuition will be very strong in this phase and you do well to engage in reflection or meditation. A dream can be particularly revealing mid week, or during the eclipse phase. It’s truly time to leave behind limiting circumstances, and begin a process of renewal. The Sun in your sign from Friday promises much is in store for you and galvanizes you towards new experiences and boundless frontiers, Happy Birthday!

TAURUS: There could be a breakthrough this week for you, related to higher education, travel, teaching or training, though dynamics going on behind the scenes play a strange role, and could skew the perspective somehow. There could be a pivotal – even disruptive situation involving a secret that is revealed in this phase. Your health may be implicated, as well, and if you have not been getting appropriate amounts of rest there can be challenging indications. Venus comes to the rescue, padding your landing with a gentle and generous transit of your sign beginning Tuesday. It will become easier to address your needs and find satisfaction and pleasure in the coming phase. Relationships with friends and groups or organizations you work with will also be enhanced as Mercury transits this area, allowing you to leave behind the critical work of the prior phase in which professional obligations were emphasized. Catching up with people you have been too busy to see, events and parties may all play a positive role in the upcoming period as well. The Eclipse Friday can bring you into a whole new group of friends or associates that will play a major role in your future. An intimate partner may offer this introduction, or you may be cultivating a serious relationship with someone who you meet through this group, a development that plays out through the Summer into Fall.

GEMINI: Very significant developments occur in your professional life this week, and a new opportunity may be on offer. Pay attention to clues you get midweek, by remaining receptive to intuition you may come to realize what you truly aspire to or discover the path you should take to get there. Mercury in Pisces through the end of the month indicates a great deal of conversation and negotiation will likely transpire in relationship to your goals and enhance your career prospects. The Friday Eclipse augments a major shift of consciousness, the next six months will be revealing of where your best course of action can be taken. It seems a relationship may be guiding your destiny through the Autumn months, you may change your direction and take work in a new city to be close to someone you care for, or a business partner may be playing a substantial role in helping you. Meanwhile there can be discord or disagreements where matters of joint finance are implicated, as arrangements pertaining to the division of assets or in relation to a loan, legacy or grant can be complicated by unexpected or unforeseen development. This has the potential to hinder your hopes and aspirations, and will require some intensive negotiation. Venus from Taurus suggests you benefit from relaxation and reflection over the coming weeks. A relationship may unfold behind the scenes or you may find yourself mulling over someone from the past and idealizing a circumstance or person you have not seen in a long time. Closure is possible in this phase, and there may be an ending, though new beginnings also transpire, especially in relation to friends in the coming weeks.

CANCER: A dynamic culmination occurs in your professional life, which will deeply impact a relationship, for better or worse. Volatile energy and changes in your life direction over the past few years may reach a critical point of transformation in this period, especially where push has come to shove and circumstances have become unbearable. It’s also possible you make a real breakthrough, and a business partner or spouse will either show you the way through, or obstinately challenge your decision towards a liberated career path. From Friday, the transit of Sun in this area will positively enhance your reputation, and you will be able to take back the reigns on your aspirations for success and recognition to better results. Friends help you through the rockier patches, and social events and activities will present wonderful opportunities for loving and affectionate exchanges. An interesting invitation to travel, teach or study abroad may also be a factor around midweek, or during the eclipse period. Mercury in Pisces suggests you will be broadening your perspective, ethical and philosophical boundaries over the coming weeks, either through correspondence with those abroad, or otherwise through actual travel or by engagement through higher educational activities. Clues and intuition are strong midweek and indicate the ability of uncovering a spiritual contact via dream or long distance travel.

LEO: This could prove to be a difficult week for travel, as it seems very unexpected developments occur where you least expect it if you are on the road or within your educational goals, teaching or publishing prospects. A health issue may prove the culprit, or work assignments could interfere at this time. Far more positive vibrations will come through intimate relationships and through quiet and introspective moments taken with your self or someone you are deeply involved with. This could apply equally to a relationship with a spouse or business partner, as negotiations surrounding shared resources or responsibilities within a partnership become integral over the coming weeks while Mercury transits Pisces. An inspirational development midweek could catalyze a deeply spiritual bond through mutual love and trust. This is merely a prelude to the sensational eclipse on Friday, which offers further stimulation to connect on a meaningful level. There is longevity implied within a commitment made at this time, though the pace of a relationship will likely be slow and steady, with a significant culmination in store by November. The Sun from Aries puts you right in your comfort zone, for the first time all year you feel you are beginning to truly come into your own. Venus from Taurus enhances your reputation and can assist you in achieving your professional goals or aspirations. You may find improved conditions towards authority figures and feel vitalized as you embrace your destiny.

VIRGO: The Pisces eclipse signals major developments in your partnership status, whether you are married, single or it’s already complicated, changes are on queue. Equally, dramatic events in the conditions in the life of your mate will deeply effect you, and if single, there is the potential to meet someone with whom you feel a deep karmic and cosmic connection. This person may play a very definitive role in your life and you might move in order to be close to someone who comes into your life at this time. The eclipse bears on your very foundations directly, and while a change in residence may be implied, all the details may not fully come into view, or into play, until this Fall. By then you will be in a more powerful position, for now it seems you must contend with the shifting ebb of the tides. A volatile economic situation may also feature in this phase, and here, too, unexpected events can shift the status quo quite dramatically. An expense related to a child may be a part of the equation, but in some way or fashion someone close with whom you share expenses, (a spouse or business partner) pulls a rabbit out of the hat, and this may have a positive effect in the long run, for now it likely feels destabilizing or somehow indicates a temporary setback. Venus in Taurus will put you at much greater ease, and you will discover affection and even love with someone with whom you can broaden your horizons. A zest for life and some adventures are in store, cast your net wide for exciting experiences.

LIBRA: The foundations of your life and relationships continue to shift as big developments continue to unfold in both residential matters and within a key partnership. Also critical in this phase will be a significant transformation in your work and productivity. You may decamp for a new position or see a huge change at your job, perhaps someone is “eclipsed out” in this phase. Listen to clues and cues midweek, as you may connect with the ideal vision for your work life, or get a positive message of reinforcement you are moving in the right direction for having trusted yourself to engage your creative and visionary nature. Follow your instincts and go with the flows the universe presents. A new assignment or modifications you embrace now will have substantial ramifications to your earnings this Summer. There may be some challenges or shortages, but in the long run the benefits will be substantial and enduring. If you have been seeking outside equity, grants or loans, a positive phase begins when Venus enters Taurus, and you can fully get yourself behind such an effort. Equally impacted are your committed and intimate relationships, and a new romance kindled over these prior weeks can become deeper at this time. Proceed cautiously and don’t get too cozy, as an eclipse in your own sign on route in early April will bring even more fundamental changes! Hang in there!

SCORPIO: Your job, health and work life have been affected pronouncedly by the impact of Uranus transiting this part of your chart since 2011. It has like created unstable, but at times exhilarating conditions, in your work continuity and productivity. One of the effects of this transit is the urge to liberation in this arena of your life, too seek an authentic expression of your self and talents through the work you do and through your lifestyle. Pluto began a long and testing passage against your efforts in this arena in mid 2012, (see the exact dates above, in the summary,) with the final card being dealt this Monday. There is a highly caustic, oppressive quality to these alignments, and this feels very personal to you, as Pluto is your ruler and the expression of it’s energy is in fact deeply connected to your authenticity. This pattern of experience has been challenging at best as your desire to have more freedom in your lifestyle has been so severely compromised by powerful forces over which you have had little control. Coupled with the transit of Saturn in your sign and this has been a double whammy of contentious and thoroughly frustrating circumstances. But Scorpio has a secret weapon this year, the brilliant assistance of Jupiter in your 10th house offering the liberation you seek through your chosen path of professional ambition. No evidence yet? Wait a few more weeks till Jupiter goes direct. And if things get prickly on Monday, keep in mind Pluto is affecting the house of communication and learning. Remove your ego, keep the flows of communication open and be willing to learn. In other news: Spring has sprung and love is in the air! Venus from Taurus as well as an eclipse in the house of True Romance have much in store for you! Tune into the auspicious nuances midweek for what is in store. xoxo!

SAGITTARIUS: If you have wondered why the source and flow of creativity and pleasure has been blocked or constrained you need look no further than the usual culprits: Uranus and Pluto, which have had a very antagonistic relationship for the last three years. Your deeply evolving values and connection to money, resources and how you earn them have played a very substantial role in this dynamic, and while meaningful self expression, love and recreational activities equally demand authentic and spontaneous expression (Uranus), the changes of perspective you are undergoing mutually need to be addressed as well. This final alinement may produce a result for you in this arena, or just add more questions, though Jupiter plays a very supportive role to get you back in the game, more notably after it resumes direct motion next month, and again in June, when trine Uranus again. You’ll find more and more over the coming months that demonstrable growth is very possible, and that priorities are soon able to shift away from foundation building and personal assets to more enthusiastic and adventurous opportunities that will present themselves. Health and productivity will be positively enhanced as Venus transits Taurus, and you will have positive relations with those with whom you work. This is also an effective time for therapies and remedies associated with improving your well being. The home and living arrangements will be going through some massive new developments as well, as your professional realm is about to undergo a major growth spurt that applies directly to your residential situation. Look to a stunning insight or intuition midweek, as well as the developments around Friday’s eclipse for clues.

CAPRICORN: Fundamental shifts have been occurring in the bedrock of your existence for years, at times a very challenging and frustrating process, though at others a positive and significant transformation from who were into who you have become. The last of these critical alinements occurs on Monday, and you may find either you have simply had enough of circumstances, or that you reach a necessary and crucial breakthrough in your life at this time. Events, awareness and circumstances will likely be shifting things and reverberating in your subconscious for some time, particularly around the time of the Libra eclipse early next month, which has a major impact for you professionally. A good thought for the time being is to simplify life as much as possible, and to not make any unnecessary commitments, as things are changing swiftly and unexpectedly. The far sweeter news this week pertains to matters of the heart, as gentle Venus passes through the area of True Romance, you may find you can sweeten the deal with a new love connection or romantic liaison. Really enticing upcoming aspects will open the doors to finding the affection you seek. For now Venus opens your heart to the possibility, enhancing creativity and pleasure. The Pisces eclipse can offer very exciting social opportunities, and agreement or contract may also be featured. The upcoming weeks will indeed be busy with a great deal off communication and connectivity with many people. These contacts will tap right into your innate abilities, and enhance your life productively through the Autumn months. What you say and the people you make agreements with at this time will prove highly satisfying.

AQUARIUS: Where weight and restriction has been present you will seek out change. This has as much to do with your thinking as it does the people with whom you share, work and play and more so the people in your daily life who inspire you to take a chance and act on convictions now through a positive conversation or suggestion. There is a compelling need to move forward and be understood. What seems to be holding you back comes from the place of secrets and mystery, possibly a toxic essence playing out behind the scenes. Your subconscious nature is changing, and compulsive thinking can be producing weird, or unusual affects on your private life. Strong cues from the environment are likely suggesting to let these go, and it is probably time to exorcise these and let them die a natural death. You are ready! Really stunning financial indications can be on tap towards the end of the week, and there could be a wonderful opportunity in store around the time of the eclipse. Intimations and creative aspirations which have inspired you over the past few months could culminate now in an offer that brings prosperity, possibly connected to your profession. The residential and personal life see a very positive upswing in the coming weeks as Venus begins a transit of Taurus. You can easily beautify and find pleasure in your surroundings, and a close love relationship can unfold within the comforts of home. Invite someone you would like to get closer to over for a nice meal to make the most of this energy. You may find you connect quite beautifully when you can share your personal space and history (and vice versa) with someone in this phase. Also a good time for reconnecting to family.

PISCES: Venus from Taurus sextiles your Sign, a stunning harmonic that allows things to open up beautifully and suggesting that positive serendipities bring forth opportunity with a minimum of effort at this time. Mercury from your sign augments your position as you can easily articulate yourself and your desires quite readily in this phase. The Moon transiting your sign mid week allows for a brilliant flow of inspiration, and you can tap the source of creative mojo and the visionary abilities you inherently possess. This culminates for you in an eclipse in your sign Friday, and you are ready to encounter new attributes of yourself that had previously been submerged or difficult to define. A part of this process is associated with your evolving professional pathway and the slow but steady progress you have been making in your career. Through this awareness there will be a need or desire to redefine your persona as required by the achievements and aspirations you seek to attain. This will be a process that endures through the upcoming months, with a remarkable transformation of your identity by this Fall. The interpersonal dynamics are affected by this, and it is likely your closest relationships will altered as a result of the personal awareness you encounter over the upcoming two years. The Uranus – Pluto square challenges your foundations. There may be a contentious financial issue to deal with at the beginning of the week, your assertion to independence in regard to how you earn and spend your income is going to come into play. One final chess move can get you to liberation. The choice is yours.
