HOROSCOPES – AUGUST 2015

(Note: If you know your rising sign, read the horoscope for your sun sign and your rising sign as information from both horoscopes may apply.)

ariesARIES (3/21-4/19) You may feel a pull between work and play this month, Aries.  The Sun, in Leo, will shine in your 5th house of creativity, romance and play, inspiring you to fill your schedule with joyful activities.  In addition, this month’s New Moon will promote setting goals that involve creative expression, romance and getting in touch with your inner child.

However, other planetary forces will direct your attention towards “getting down to business” and taking care of daily responsibilities.  You can use these opposing energies to ensure your life has an appropriate work/life balance.

Through August 22nd, the Leo Sun will create an overall mood of warmth and love, particularly in your romantic partnerships or relationships with children in your life.  On the 23rd, the Sun will shift into industrious Virgo which can help you to get back “on task” if you’ve strayed from your regular work or health routines.

Saturn, which has been retrograde since March 14th of this year, stations direct on August 2nd.  Saturn started the year in Sagittarius, but makes a return to Scorpio between June 14th and September 16th.  During these months, we’re all being asked to address issues related to intimate relationships and joint finances.  Aries people may be feeling Saturn’s return to Scorpio more intensely than other signs – Saturn is in your 8th house of intimacy and shared finances, intensifying its effects.

It’s a great time to work through issues of debt, especially with a partner.  It could feel as if themes from 2012-2014 are resurfacing – sex, emotional intimacy and secrets can be important topics to address.  By speaking your mind and allowing yourself to be emotionally vulnerable, it will be possible to feel closer to a partner while solidifying your sense of self.

Jupiter, planet of luck and opportunity, will move into Virgo on August 11th where it will remain through September 2016.  With Jupiter transiting your 6th house of daily work, health and wellness, the next year can be a fortuitous time to improve your work and physical wellbeing.  Look for opportunities to grow in your current job or a favorable offer for a new type of work.  It’s an excellent time to improve your health and start a new physical routine.

As Jupiter moves into Virgo, it will also oppose Neptune.  Neptune, in Pisces, has been transiting your 12th house of dreams, intuition and spirituality since 2012 and is calling you to pay attention to “hunches” and signs from the Universe.  As Neptune invites you to walk into the mystery and embrace the unknown, Jupiter will be encouraging you to take charge of the daily details of life.  At times, it could feel as if you are being pulled in two directions.

You can make the most of these opposing energies by incorporating spirituality into your daily routines.  It will be important to stay grounded and make the most of any opportunities that come your way, especially when it comes to work.  However, you will be most successful when you can combine your intuition with your work ethic to go after the pursuits that are most meaningful to you.

HOROSCOPES – JUNE 2015

(Note: If you know your rising sign, read the horoscope for your sun sign and your rising sign as information from both horoscopes may apply.)

ariesARIES (3/21-4/19) – June holds the potential for discovery and learning as well as re-learning the things we’ve forgotten.  A strong theme of addressing the past, and your subconscious, will be present.  It could seem as if your mind is more full than usual, especially during the first part of the month.  As the month progresses, tensions are likely to be eased.  From the Summer Solstice through the end of the month, relaxation and nurturing the important relationships in your life may become your first priority.

June 2nd’s Full Moon, in Sagittarius, can help you to remember your love for adventure.  It could be that the details of life have been bogging you down.  This Full Moon can help you to see what new life experiences may be necessary to lift your spirits and reignite your passion for life.  Could be time to plan a trip or look into classes in a subject that fascinates you.  Introducing new people and ideas into your life can help you break out of the ordinary.

We’ll still be feeling the effects of Mercury retrograde for most of the month.  Since May 18th, Mercury has been retrograde in your 3rd house of communication and learning.  This can have a real “blast from the past” effect which may include the resurfacing of old friends or news about something from your past.  Additionally, it’s a great time to jog your memory for forgotten information and spend time re-learning skills that feel rusty.

Although Mercury turns direct on June 11th, we’ll feel the “shadow effect” of Mercury retrograde through June 25th.  Avoid signing contracts and making major decisions or purchases during this time, if possible.  Commitments made during Mercury retrograde often need to be renegotiated.

The whole month is likely to have a social feel. With the Gemini Sun creating a warm atmosphere for friendly communications, you may want to reach out to others.  Although there could be some missed connections due to Mercury retrograde, it is good timing to be reunited with loved ones.  When the Sun moves into Cancer on June 21st (also the Summer Solstice), you may have the urge to fill your calendar with activities and gatherings that involve family members.

Mid-month, two of the outer planets will make a shift than can cause you to pay attention to subconscious messages.  First, on June 12th, Neptune will station retrograde.  Between now and November 18th, when it will go direct, you could feel that a curtain has been lifted in your mind to reveal some hidden thoughts or dreams.

This is especially powerful for Aries, who currently have Neptune transiting their 12th house of the subconscious, dreams and intuition.  Pay attention to ideas or realizations that surface now.  Keeping a journal is a great way to capture some of your hidden gems.

Also, on June 14th, Saturn will return to the sign of Scorpio.  Saturn has been in retrograde since March 14th and will not go direct until August 2nd.  Although Saturn started the year in fiery Sagittarius, it will dip back into the dark watery sign of Scorpio from June 14th through September 17th.  This can provide an opportunity to address issues involving joint finances, sex, secrets and anything relating to intimate relationships.  There may be a resurgence of themes that were present in your life from 2012-2014.  This time period can act as a “wrap up” session to gain closure on your past.

At the New Moon on the 16th, you’ll have a chance to set intentions that involve your social life, skill building and diversifying your activities or work.

 

taurusTAURUS (4/20-5/20) – Money matters and important friendships or partnerships may capture your attention this month.  Things are likely to feel busier than usual, but don’t be surprised if new projects are put on hold.  We’ll be feeling the slowing effect of Mercury retrograde most of the month which will make it an optimal time to finish up anything you’ve started.  This month’s astrology will encourage examining the agreements you’ve made with others, especially if money is involved.

June 2nd’s Full Moon, in Sagittarius, can lend clarity to your intimate relationships.  It’s a good time to share your philosophies and bigger life dreams.  This month is well suited for taking on challenges and solving problems with a loved one.  There will be an overall mood of optimism present around the Full Moon that can be helpful to see the best in each other.  You’re being encouraged to take a chance and have faith that things will work out.

We’ll still be feeling the effects of Mercury retrograde for most of the month.  Since May 18th, Mercury has been retrograde in your 2nd house of finance and self-worth.  When it comes to money, your cash flow could run into some roadblocks.  However, it’s a good time to collect on debts owed to you.

Mercury retrograde’s energy is also useful to review your mental outlook.  You may discover that you’re repeating some negative self-talk that is affecting your confidence.  This is a good time to forgive yourself for any perceived mistakes and give yourself a “clean slate” going forward.

Although Mercury turns direct on June 11th, we’ll feel the “shadow effect” of Mercury retrograde through June 25th.  Avoid signing contracts and making major decisions or purchases during this time, if possible.  Commitments made during Mercury retrograde often need to be renegotiated.

Mid-month, two of the outer planets will make a shift than can cause you to pay attention to subconscious messages.

First, on June 12th, Neptune will station retrograde.  Between now and November 18th, when it will go direct, you could feel that a curtain has been lifted in your mind to reveal some hidden thoughts or dreams.

For Taureans, who currently have Neptune transiting their 11th house of friendship and community, this can bring a new awareness about the people in your life.  You may feel that a friend or member of your community is behaving deceptively.  It could be a time to let go of relationships that no longer work for you or a chance to heal a friendship that has been clouded by misconceptions.

Also, on June 14th, Saturn will return to the sign of Scorpio.  Saturn has been in retrograde since March 14th and will not go direct until August 2nd.  Although Saturn started the year in fiery Sagittarius, it will dip back into the dark watery sign of Scorpio from June 14th through September 17th.

This can provide an opportunity to address issues involving joint finances, sex, secrets and anything relating to intimate relationships or partnerships.  There may be a resurgence of themes that were present in your life from 2012-2014.  This time period can act as a “wrap up” session to gain closure on your past.

The Gemini Sun can help to boost your energy when it comes to working with your finances.  You may come up with some clever solutions to manage your money more efficiently and avoid putting all your eggs in one basket.  When the Sun moves into Cancer on June 21st (also the Summer Solstice), it will be an ideal time to reach out to family members.  The remainder of the month offers support for activities that nurture your body and soul.

The New Moon on the 16th will provide an excellent opportunity to set financial goals.  You can also ask the universe to support your efforts to become more confident in your abilities and self-worth.

 

geminiGEMINI (5/21-6/20) – This is an excellent month to focus on yourself!  You have planetary support to spend extra time thinking about your needs and dreams.  The people close to you, such as friends or partners, will only benefit from the effort you put into yourself this month, so don’t feel selfish.  Your self image, confidence and personal goals will be a big theme.  Career and financial goals will also be up for examination.  You are being called to determine your priorities and look for more meaningful uses of your time and skills.

June 2nd’s Full Moon, in Sagittarius, can help clarify your partnerships.  It’s a good time to compare notes with a close friend, romantic partner or business partner to see if your bigger life goals are in alignment.  It’s possible you need to shake things up and broaden your horizons together.  Look for ways to spark each other’s enthusiasm.  Single Geminis could have a romantic encounter with someone new and exciting.

We’ll still be feeling the effects of Mercury retrograde for most of the month.  Since May 18th, Mercury has been retrograde in your 1st house of self.  You could be experiencing more delays, miscommunications and moments of confusion than usual.  The good news is that Mercury retrograde’s energy can help you to learn from your past. Consider the wisdom you’ve gained and what knowledge you are able to use moving forward.

Although Mercury turns direct on June 11th, we’ll feel the “shadow effect” of Mercury retrograde through June 25th.  Avoid signing contracts and making major decisions or purchases during this time, if possible.  Commitments made during Mercury retrograde often need to be renegotiated.

For Geminis, who currently have Neptune transiting their 10th house of career and public image, this could be a time to vision for your future.  How would you like to be seen or remembered by others?  What are the most meaningful ways to spend your time and talents?  What gifts do you have to share with the world?  You could gain access to some valuable insights and inspirations that were hiding “beneath the surface” of your subconscious.

Also, on June 14th, Saturn will return to the sign of Scorpio.  Saturn has been in retrograde since March 14th and will not go direct until August 2nd.  Although Saturn started the year in fiery Sagittarius, it will dip back into the dark watery sign of Scorpio from June 14th through September 17th.

This can provide an opportunity to address issues involving joint finances, sex, secrets and anything relating to intimate relationships.  Your daily work, health and wellness is also up for scrutiny.  It’s a time to assess if you have been sticking to the commitments you made to yourself and others.  There may be a resurgence of themes that were present in your life from 2012-2014.  This time period can act as a “wrap up” session to gain closure on your past.

cancerCANCER (6/21-7/22) – The Sun will shine in your 12th house for much of the month which could have you feeling more introverted than usual.  When the Sun moves into your sign on June 21st (also the Summer Solstice), you’re much more likely to feel like celebrating with family and friends.  The remainder of the month will have a warm, loving mood and you are scheduled to receive some appreciation from loved ones.

This month, you could be due for some “mental housekeeping.”  With June 16th’s New Moon in your 12th house of the subconscious and spirituality, you may have more awareness about something you’ve been hiding from yourself.  Alone time for contemplation can yield fruitful results.  Your daily habits and routines will also be up for examination.  It’s an excellent month to focus on mindfulness and physical self-care.

June 2nd’s Full Moon, in Sagittarius, can bring to light circumstances in your day-to-day life that may be restricting your freedom.  The tedium of life’s little details could be feeling a bit oppressive.  Could be time to schedule time for adventure and new experiences.

Anything that gets you out of your usual patterns can help to lift your spirits now.  It could be a lecture or class in a topic that fascinates you or a new sport or exercise routine.  Trying new things can boost your confidence and help you access more opportunities for excitement.

However, it’s a better time to dabble than completely commit to a new plan.  We’ll still be feeling the effects of Mercury retrograde for most of the month.  Since May 18th, Mercury has been retrograde in your 12th house of the subconscious, stirring up old feelings and memories.  This month is best spent gaining closure on the past.

Although Mercury turns direct on June 11th, we’ll feel the “shadow effect” of Mercury retrograde through June 25th.  Avoid signing contracts and making major decisions or purchases during this time, if possible.  Commitments made during Mercury retrograde often need to be renegotiated.

Mid-month, two of the outer planets will make a shift than can cause you to pay attention to subconscious messages.

First, on June 12th, Neptune will station retrograde.  Between now and November 18th, when it will go direct, you could feel that a curtain has been lifted in your mind to reveal some hidden thoughts or dreams.

Cancers currently have Neptune transiting their 9th house of travel, adventure and higher education.  This can indicate an inner awakening that puts you in touch with hidden dreams and desires.  There could be a part of you that craves more out of life and is ready to strike out on an adventure!  You may not have been aware that you were feeling restless, but the next few months could help to spark your motivation and pique your curiosity for new experiences.

Also, on June 14th, Saturn will return to the sign of Scorpio.  Saturn has been in retrograde since March 14th and will not go direct until August 2nd.  Although Saturn started the year in fiery Sagittarius, it will dip back into the dark watery sign of Scorpio from June 14th through September 17th.

This can provide an opportunity to address issues involving joint finances, sex, secrets and anything relating to intimate relationships.  You may find yourself exploring any of these subjects in your creative or romantic life.  There may be a resurgence of themes that were present in your life from 2012-2014.  This time period can act as a “wrap up” session to gain a sense of closure on past relationships or creative projects.

Leos currently have Neptune transiting their 8th house of sex, death and joint finances.  It’s common to repress feelings when it comes to these topics and Leos can be especially tuned in to the emotional “undercurrents.”  If you are in an intimate partnership, it can be a time to see aspects of your relationship that can often be clouded by idealism.  You can work with this transit to gather valuable information and begin to have loving conversations with yourself and/or a partner.

HOROSCOPES – MAY 2015

(Note: If you know your rising sign, read the horoscope for your sun sign and your rising sign as information from both horoscopes may apply.)

ariesARIES (3/21-4/19) – This is a good month to slow down and tend to your finances, intimate relationships and home life. It’s likely the past few months have been busy and you’ve been buzzing with the energy of March and April’s eclipses. Now, it’s time to take a step back and review your situation, especially where finances are involved. With Mercury turning Retrograde this month, it’s an ideal time to step back and reflect – journaling can be an especially productive way to process the mental and emotional downloads of the past couple of months.

May 3rd’s Full Moon, in Scorpio, can help shed light on issues related to joint finances or other “tricky” topics regarding an intimate relationship. You may be able to see yourself and a loved one with more clarity and some of your realizations may feel intense. This Full Moon is encouraging you to be more authentic and come out of denial about the things you haven’t been willing to look at. Working with this energy can help you to heal an intimate partnership or resolve wounds you have from past relationships.

Venus will enter the sign of Cancer, on May 7th, making the rest of the month ideal for beautifying your living space. It’s a great time to add some decorative touches and make your home more cozy and welcoming. Consider hosting a small gathering for family and close friends. It’s also a wonderful time to care for yourself and indulge in relaxing activities such as a hot bath or massage.

Mars moves into Gemini on May 11th. The rest of the month can be a productive time for writing projects or research. You may feel motivated to reach out to others. However, with Mercury going Retrograde May 18th there’s a higher likelihood of missed connections this month. The energy will be more supportive of reconnecting with people from your past than making new friends.

Mercury Retrograde will last from May 18th through June 11th. However, the effects can often be felt for about two weeks on either side of these dates in what is known as the “shadow period.” New endeavors are not supported during this time period, so it’s best to postpone major decisions, purchases or projects until after June 25th, if possible. You can productively make use of Mercury Retrograde’s slowing effects, however. It’s a great time to review your current plans, catch up on anything you’ve fallen behind on at work or school and get back in touch with long lost friends or relatives.

This month’s New Moon, on May 18th, can help you to set financial goals and establish habits that reinforce your sense of self-worth. You could have some ideas to increase your income or start a savings plan. The timing is right to set your intentions. However, since Mercury is Retrograde, take your time in considering what you want and realize that you may not see immediate results.

The Sun will enter Gemini and your 3rd house of communications on May 21st. Your social life may pick up around this time and you could have a few projects going at once. The remainder of the month will continue to have a reflective mood, but your mind may feel restless. You can make best use of this energy to multi-task, catch up on correspondence and take care of errands that have been overdue.

 

taurusTAURUS (4/20-5/20) – Finances, personal goals and partnerships are strong themes for you this month, Taurus.

It’s a great time to set some personal goals and do some reflection to define (or re-define) what’s most important to you. Several planets will point your attention towards your finances this month. Could be a good time to reconsider the best ways to increase your income and/or save money.

HOROSCOPES – APRIL 2015

(Note: If you know your rising sign, read the horoscope for your sun sign and your rising sign as information from both horoscopes may apply.)

ariesARIES (3/21-4/19)  Relationships, career and new beginnings are on the menu for April, Aries. In addition to the Sun lighting up your birth sign through the 19th, there will be a New Moon in your sign on the 18th. This month’s New Moon kicks off your astrological new year and will be a powerful time to set personal goals and manifest the things you want.

But first, we’ll experience a Lunar Eclipse /Full Moon, in Libra, on April 4th. Eclipses are generally associated with changing circumstances and the Full Moon can illuminate the areas of our lives that are ripe for transformation. Partnerships, both business and romantic, will be in the spotlight and issues about fairness can arise. The Full Moon is a time when our emotions can be heightened and during an Eclipse that effect is exaggerated. A few days after the Eclipse it may be easier to sort through the information and have productive conversations.

sagSAGITTARIUS (11/22-12/21)  Your career and creative talents will be a focus in March. Saturn, planet of discipline, work, restriction and reality checks entered your Sun Sign in December 2014. It will reside mostly in the sign of Sagittarius over the next two years or so. You have an opportunity during this time to learn from your mistakes and make progress by working for what you really want. This month, Saturn turns Retrograde and you may turn your attention inward in order to “get real” with yourself.

March 5th’s Full Moon in Virgo will light up your 10th house of career and public image. Your diligence and hard work can pay off around this time.

Emotions can heighten around the Full Moon and you could take the errors of others personally. Realize that it’s more likely that everyone is doing the best they can and focus on how you can improve your own work.

If you’ve been paying attention to these planets, it’s likely you’ve been going through some transformations during the past few years.

This last exact square could be a culmination of something you’ve been working towards and can give you the push you need to pursue your creative passions. You may be in the process of transforming your financial outlook and could be seeking a more fulfilling livelihood. This transit could turn up the pressure and help you to value your creative talents.

You’ll feel the most successful when you go with the energetic flow and keep a low profile.

Consider booking some time for meditation, journaling and reviewing your goals.

Emotions tend to run high around the Full Moon, so avoid any urges to criticize ideas that you disagree with. Realize that the effects of the Full Moon can be clouding your ability to see all sides of an issue.

HOROSCOPES – FEBRUARY 2015
(Note: If you know your rising sign, read the horoscope for your sun sign and your rising sign as information from both horoscopes may apply.)

ariesARIES (3/21-4/19) This month there is an over-arching theme of “getting real” when it comes to your dreams. Saturn in Sagittarius presents a universal lesson about how to balance faith with action. Saturn will be squaring Neptune, planet of dreams, all month. This can help us to see that if we simply wish for what we want without investing time and energy, we’re closing ourselves off to assistance from the Universe. For Aries, planning for dreams that involve travel, adventure or higher education are especially supported. Because Mercury will be Retrograde, hold off on initiating action until next month.

Strong themes of friendship, romance, universal love and passion will prevail for Aries this month. Through the 17th, the Aquarius Sun will warm your 11th house of friendship and community. It’s a good time to connect with others and recognize the power in numbers. Romance and passion will also be in the air throughout the month and you may be feeling the intensity more strongly than other Sun Signs.

For single Aries, it could be tempting to dive into a new relationship. However, Mercury is in Retrograde through February 10th. This month will be much better suited for reconnecting with old friends or lovers and addressing any unfinished business. February is looking to be a socially active month for you but it may be difficult to determine if new people entering your life will become long-term friends. Mercury Retrograde can add an element of confusion to personal interactions. Avoid making assumptions and ask clarifying questions to help avoid miscommunications.

Mercury goes direct February 11th, but we can feel the effects through February 25th in what is known as the “shadow period.” During this time, it’s best to avoid making major purchases or big decisions or signing contracts, if possible. The energy will support repairing items you already own, re-negotiating agreements and putting a wrap on projects already in progress.

On February 3rd, the Leo Full Moon will shine in your 5th house of romance and creativity, adding a sense of fun to your relationships. If you’re in an existing partnership, this can be a time to rekindle passionate sparks and enjoy being playful with a loved one. If single, you could get a clear picture of your ideal partner. It’s great timing to meet someone and get swept off your feet, BUT, avoid making any relationship commitments until next month. Creative projects can flourish and you’re likely to have the inspiration and motivation to complete unfinished works.

Your personal magnetism will increase around the 20th when Venus moves into your Sun Sign. Your independent spirit, strength and optimistic attitude can be especially appealing to others now. Mars also enters your Sun sign at this time which can focus your desires and give you the courage to go for what you want. From the 20th through the end of the month, Mars and Venus conjunct in your Sun Sign offering you a special blend of allure and ambition. Your energy and enthusiasm can be quite contagious and it will be easy to attract friends and allies. You can expect a bit of sexual mojo to boot!

The New Moon will be on February 18th which is also the same day that the Sun enters Pisces. In contrast to the first few weeks of the month, from the 18th on, you’re likely to crave more solitude.

This month’s New Moon is excellent to invite more peace and spiritual connection into your life. It’s also a fantastic time to release addictive behaviors and forgive yourself and others.
