HOROSCOPES – DECEMBER 2016

ARIES (3/21-4/19) – Each year on the Winter Solstice, we’re encouraged to slow down and take stock of the past year. This year’s Solstice, on December 21st, will occur just two days after Mercury stations retrograde, making reflection and renewal paramount this month. With many cultures celebrating holidays during the month of December, it can often be a joyful, but hectic time. This month’s astrology will encourage prioritizing your time. Be selective about the social invitations that come your way, especially during the second half of the month.

The Sun will be in Sagittarius and your 9th house of travel, adventure, higher education, and spirituality until December 20th. You could be inspired to look at the world in a different way and new life experiences may beckon.  From the 21st on, the Sun will be in Capricorn and your 10th house of career and public image. It may feel important for you to be recognized for your hard work, and your natural leadership skills will shine.

The Gemini Full Moon on December 13th will be in your 3rd house of communication and learning. New information may come to light regarding someone close to you. It will be a great time for networking, and people may be feeling particularly social around this time. Because this Full Moon will be during the “shadow phase” of Mercury retrograde, it will be a prime time to reach out and reconnect with old friends. Someone from your past may re-emerge in order to resolve unfinished business. It will also be great timing to put a wrap on writing or communication projects.

Mercury will station retrograde on December 19th, initiating a cycle that will last until January 8th. However, due to the “shadow phase,” we’re apt to feel the effects of this phenomenon as early as December 3rd and as late as January 25th. Mercury retrograde cycles typically create delays and put obstacles in the path of forward movement. This cycle, though frustrating, is actually for our own good. You can use any unexpected downtime that results from it to catch your breath and to reconnect with loved ones.

With Mercury moving in retrograde through Capricorn and your 10th house of career and public image, it will be a good time to reflect on your career goals.

New endeavors begun during Mercury retrograde are not destined to fail, but they often get off to a bumpy start and need to be revised as you go.

December 21st marks the Winter Solstice and the Sun’s ingress into Capricorn. This will be a time to take stock of the past year and let go of anything that may be holding you back.

Consider writing two lists: one of the things you’d like to release from your life and the other for what you’d like to manifest. Because the Sun will be transiting your 10th house of career and public image, it will be a powerful time to focus on your life purpose and what gifts you have to share with the world.

The December 28th New Moon will also be in Capricorn and your 10th house of career and public image. It will be an excellent time to write down your goals related to work, taking charge of your life, leadership opportunities, self-confidence, and long-term planning. It can be a good time to set your New Year’s resolutions. However, consider what you write down at this time to be “on hold” until after January 25th when we’re clear of Mercury retrograde’s influence.

The January 27th New Moon will be a much more appropriate time to get started with your New Year’s resolutions than January 1st. At the January 27th New Moon, revisit your goals and decide what still feels important to you. Set some additional intentions and prepare for big changes ahead in February!

However, consider what you write down at this time to be “on hold” until after January 25th when we’re clear of Mercury retrograde’s influence.

The January 27th New Moon will be a much more appropriate time to get started with your New Year’s resolutions than January 1st. At the January 27th New Moon, revisit your goals and decide what still feels important to you. Set some additional intentions and prepare for big changes ahead in February!

 

CAPRICORN (12/22-1/19) – Each year on the Winter Solstice, we’re encouraged to turn our energy inward and contemplate the past year, despite the external demands on our time and energy. This year’s Winter Solstice, on December 21st, will occur just two days after Mercury stations retrograde, making reflection and renewal paramount this month.

With many cultures celebrating holidays during the month of December, it can often be a joyful, but hectic time. December’s astrology will require Capricorns to slow down and reflect on their priorities and personal goals. Be selective about how you spend your time to ensure you can have necessary moments to yourself.

The Sun will be in Sagittarius and your 12th house of spirituality and intuition until December 20th. These days will be an ideal time to connect with your Higher Power. On the 21st, the Sun will move into your sign and 1st house of self, making the latter half of December ideal to focus on your personal goals.

The December 13th Full Moon will be in Gemini and your 6th house of daily work and wellness. You could receive a work-related opportunity through your social network. It will be a great time to make connections! You could also gain valuable information about your health around this time.

Because this Full Moon will be during the “shadow phase” of Mercury retrograde, the timing won’t be right to commit to a new job or health-related routine. Instead, use this time to gather information and research your options. If you must begin a new endeavor during this time, leave yourself room to renegotiate and continue to look for different approaches that may be a better fit.

Mercury will station retrograde on December 19th, beginning a cycle that will last until January 8th. However, due to the “shadow phase,” we’re apt to feel the effects of this phenomenon as early as December 3rd and as late as January 25th. Mercury retrograde cycles typically create delays and put obstacles in the path of forward movement. This cycle, though frustrating, is actually for our own good. You can use any unexpected downtime that results from it to catch your breath and to reconnect with loved ones.

With Mercury moving in retrograde through your Sun Sign, you will likely feel its effects quite personally. Your usually fine-tuned mind could be feeling a bit foggy and sluggish. Take extra time to review your work and confirm appointments, as logistical errors can be more common during this time.

December 21st marks the Winter Solstice and the Sun’s ingress into your Sun Sign. This will be a time to take stock of the past year and let go of anything that may be holding you back. It could be helpful to set aside some time for reflection around that date. Consider writing two lists: one of the things you’d like to release from your life and the other for what you’d like to manifest. The Sun will be transiting your 1st house of self. Do you still want the same things out of life that you did a year ago?

AQUARIUS (1/20-2/18) – With many cultures celebrating holidays during the month of December, it can often be a joyful, but hectic time.

HOROSCOPES – NOVEMBER 2016

(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.)

ARIES (3/21-4/19) – November will be a good month to focus on money and/or career-related matters.  Your social network can help you to make valuable connections and it will be good timing to consider a training program or other form of higher education.  While there will be strong practical energies at work this month, some astrological forces may create emotional intensity.  You could feel confused at times and your first instinct may be to take hasty action.  Avoid succumbing to impatience and rely on activities that help you to feel centered.  When you can calm yourself, you’ll be in a powerful position to strategize for the future.

The Sun will be in Scorpio and your 8th house of intimate partnerships and shared finance until November 20th.  During these days, the timing will be good to work closely with a romantic or business partner.  From the 21st on, the Sun will be in Sagittarius and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education.  You’ll be well positioned to attract a mentor or find a course of study that can help you to move towards a bigger goal.

Mars will move into Aquarius and your 11th house of friendship and community on November 8th, where it will remain until December 18th.  Creative collaborations will be favored, and it will be an excellent time to network for business and pleasure.

The Taurus Full Moon on November 14th will illuminate your 2nd house of finance and self-worth.  Issues related to your income, a joint business venture, and your long-term plans may emerge around this time.  If you’ve been working towards a financial goal, you could see progress.  However, it may also be a wake up call to get back on track if you’ve been careless with your spending or bookkeeping habits.

Neptune will station direct on November 19th, signaling the end of a five-month retrograde cycle (June 13 – November 19).  During Neptune retrograde, you’re given more access to your intuition and subconscious.  The days around Neptune stationing direct can create mental confusion as your mind shifts towards the tangible world.

Avoid making important decisions between November 17th and November 22nd, as you’ll likely feel the “foggy” effects of Neptune stationing direct.  Take some time for yourself to write in a journal and remember some of the ideas that came to you while Neptune was retrograde.  Neptune will be direct until June 16th, 2017.  During this time, you will be able to solidify some of your visions and take action towards a personal dream.

Because November’s Moon Wobble occurs in the sign of Sagittarius and is squaring the Nodal Axis, people may feel pressured to have all the answers.  To compensate, an irrational need to be “right” may emerge.  Debates can become heated, and everyone will be more susceptible to losing track of logic and letting emotions steer their thinking.

The Full Moon on the 15th will be in your Sun Sign, highlighting your self-image and personal goals.  The Full Moon often raises emotional sensitivity and shines a light on a part of your life that needs to change.  Use new information that comes to light as an opportunity to learn, and do your best to keep an even keel.

From the 17th to the end of the month (felt most strongly from 10/17 to 10/23), Mars will be conjunct Pluto and square Uranus, which could put the pressure on at work and/or your dealings with the public.  You’ll be reminded about the commitments you’ve made to yourself and others.  This will be a powerful time to get in touch with your higher ambitions and personal strengths.

Since the Uranus-Pluto square began in 2008, you’ve been called to put more of your personal skills to work in the world.  This month, it will be difficult to remain behind the scenes.  Your successes and failures may feel visible to all, which could make you feel vulnerable.  Keep in mind that there will also be the opportunity to be recognized for your work.  Use this opportunity to step up and show others your strengths.

Saturn and Neptune will continue to square each other this month, though the square will loosen as the month progresses.  This aspect, which has been active since the end of 2015, has been encouraging you to structure your creative visions and dreams.  Consider finding a class or other training program to help you gain the skills needed to work towards a goal that may seem out of reach.

This aspect is teaching all Sun Signs to strike a healthy balance between boundaries and unity, structure and flow.  This aspect, which will be in effect all year, will push Ariens to simultaneously seek knowledge from others and learn to trust their inner wisdom.  When you can be secure enough in your abilities to admit what you don’t know, you will open yourself up to valuable learning opportunities.

Since the Uranus-Pluto square began in 2008, you’ve been called to recognize your inner dreams.  Often, our true desires get buried in our subconscious due to fear of failure.  When Mars activates Pluto this month, you’ll have a good opportunity to release fear and embrace new challenges.  You may need to change your philosophy about how things “should” be done.  Stay open to unconventional ideas and unlikely teachers.

Since the Uranus-Pluto square began in 2008, you’ve been called to work on the relationships in your life, including platonic friendships, romantic partnerships, and business connections.  You’re scheduled for a deep healing that can help you feel freer to be yourself around others.  But first, you may need to find others who inspire you to express yourself with confidence and authenticity.  Make a study of people you admire who appear comfortable with themselves.  Share your unique ideas with others and work to shed fear and discouraging words that loved ones may have told you in the past.

Saturn and Neptune will continue to square each other this month, though the square will loosen as the month progresses.  This aspect, which has been active since the end of 2015, has been encouraging you to create healthy boundaries with co-workers and partners.  You could be getting more realistic about your career goals and may need to negotiate with a partner about your work schedule.

From the 17th to the end of the month (felt most strongly from 10/17 to 10/23), Mars will be conjunct Pluto and square Uranus.  With revolutionary Uranus transiting your 10th house of career and public image, you’re ripe for change in these areas of your life.  When Mars transits conjunct a planet, it often serves as an agitator to prod us into action.  If you’ve been dragging your feet about making a necessary work-related change, this transit could set off circumstances that help you to make a bold move.

Since the Uranus-Pluto square began in 2008, you’ve been in the process of reinventing yourself.  You’re probably not presenting a new version of yourself to the world, but instead, you’re learning to let your true self shine out.  Your authenticity is scheduled to emerge both in your work life and in personal relationships.  Situations that don’t allow you to be yourself will no longer work for you.  You’ll be guided towards the people and opportunities that resonate with your genuine nature.

HOROSCOPES – SEPTEMBER 2016

(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.)

ARIES (3/21-4/19) – Two Eclipses and Mercury Retrograde will make September a dynamic month!  A Virgo Solar Eclipse on September 1st will set the stage for changes that will unfold over the next six months.  A Solar Eclipse is a powerful New Moon that often ushers in new energy and ideas as well as endings and beginnings.  This Eclipse will take place in your 6th house of work and wellness, making it an excellent time to set goals related to these areas of life.

In addition to the Solar Eclipse, there will be a strong concentration of astrological energy focused on your 6th house.  This could be a big month to experience awakenings about your daily habits and work-related goals.  However, Mercury Retrograde’s effects will be present all month.  For this New Moon / Solar Eclipse, it will be best to focus on finishing what you’ve started.

The timing will be fabulous to reinstate an abandoned fitness routine, finish a big work project or renew your enthusiasm for a more structured and productive schedule.  If you have your sights set on a brand new goal, it will be useful to write it down on September 1st.  However, wait to take action or make any big decisions until after October 5th, when we’ll be completely clear of Mercury Retrograde’s energy.

You may feel a heightened emotional sensitivity during the first few weeks of September.  We will experience a Moon Wobble on September 4th (felt between 8/31 and 9/10) that will be conjunct the North Node in Virgo.  Moon Wobbles stir emotional energy.  This Moon Wobble in Virgo can cause people to be overly critical of themselves and others.

If you experience an emotional upset during these days, remember that there is a valuable lesson available to you.  This astrology will ask you to accept that it isn’t possible to control all aspects of your life.  This Moon Wobble will encourage you to have faith in a power greater than yourself, particularly when it comes to work or health-related matters.

A Full Moon / Lunar Eclipse in Pisces on September 16th may strengthen your intuition and illuminate hidden issues.  This time could serve as an emotional awakening that helps you gain clarity about your life purpose.  It will be an excellent time to let go of outmoded beliefs and renew your connection to a Higher Power.  Creative ideas may emerge around this time and you may feel motivated to express dreams that you’ve previously kept a secret.

Partnerships will be highlighted during the latter part of the month.  The Sun will move into equitable Libra and your 7th house of partnership on September 22nd, which is also the date of the Autumnal Equinox.  Mercury will station direct on September 21st, which may help communications and work-related projects to flow more freely.  However, because we’ll be in the shadow phase of Mercury retrograde until October 5th, it will be wise to hold off on making new commitments until after this date.

Pluto will station direct on September 26th, kicking off a productive cycle for your career and anything related to working with the public.  Prepare to be recognized for work you’ve been doing “behind the scenes” for some time.  There will be a second New Moon this month on September 30th—an astrological rarity.  Unlike the New Moon on September 1st, this New Moon will be in Libra and won’t be combined with a Solar Eclipse.  It will be excellent timing to set partnership-related goals and a calm, harmonious energy will be available to lead us into October.

Mercury will be traveling through Virgo all month and will be retrograde from August 30th – September 20th.  However, we may feel influenced about two weeks before and two weeks after this phenomenon in what is known as the “shadow period.”  Because Mercury will be in your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance, you’ll be supported in efforts to review these areas of life.  You could have the opportunity to resolve issues or gain closure with a former partner.  It will also be excellent timing to collect money owed to you or make a plan to pay off debts.

It will be best to hold off on committing to new relationships from August 18th to October 5th, if possible.  Instead, focus your attention on releasing relationship baggage from the past.

Saturn will station direct on August 13th, which can add power to the Neptune-Saturn square that’s been in effect much of this year.  This square is particularly helpful to get clear on your friendships and finances.  This astrology asks you to evaluate how you are spending your time and money.  You may have some long-term financial goals that require careful planning on your part.  You’ll also be considering how you spend your time.  Do the people and groups you associate with add to your joy and energy or drain it?

Saturn is calling you to commit to a life that values your self-worth.  However, avoid new commitments (renewing old commitments is great!) until after October 5th, when we’re completely clear of Mercury retrograde’s influence.

A Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on August 18th will activate your 1st house of self.  Aquarius symbolizes freedom, individuality and innovation.  Consider these questions during the days around the Eclipse:  How do I need to revolutionize my life to be true to myself?  What changes do I want to instigate this year?  What do I need to let go of to make room for new opportunities?

 

PISCES (2/19-3/20) – This month’s astrology will likely stir your mind, but because Mercury will be going retrograde, August will favor ideas more than actions.  The timing won’t be right for major decisions or the initiation of new ideas.  This will be a fantastic month to gather information and the Lunar Eclipse on August 18th in your Sun Sign can facilitate a spiritual awakening.

The Sun will be in Leo and your 6th house of daily work and health until August 21st.  This energy will signal you to incorporate more fun into your daily activities.  Listening to music and camaraderie with co-workers can boost your productivity.  Your body may desire to get outside and play—look for enjoyable ways to get some exercise.  August 2nd’s New Moon in Leo will support intentions related to work, recreational activities, health and keeping a balanced schedule.

On August 22nd, the Sun will move into Virgo and your 7th house of partnership.  For the rest of the month, a practical energy will be available, helping couples to learn how to work better as a team.  If single, you may be attracted to someone who is attentive and skilled at taking care of others.

Saturn will station direct on August 13th, which can add power to the Neptune-Saturn square that’s been in effect much of this year.  With Neptune in your Sun Sign, you may be feeling the effects of this square more so than your peers.  Neptune has been traveling through your Sun Sign since 2012 and will remain there until Spring of 2025.  During this time, you’re being called to let go of illusions, clarify your sense of self, and trust your intuition.  As Saturn activates Neptune in a square this month, you can feel supported to make positive life changes.  It will be excellent timing to break negative habits and make a solid plan for your goals.

Saturn is calling you to commit to your dreams!  However, avoid new commitments (renewing old commitments is great!) until after October 5th, when we’re completely clear of Mercury retrograde’s influence.

A Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on August 18th will activate your 12th house of spirituality and subconscious.  Consider these questions during the days around the Eclipse:  What makes you feel invigorated with life and spiritually fulfilled?  What unique traits do you possess that can help you to reach your highest potential?  Do you have hidden talents or ideas that are ready to be shared with the world?

While it might seem more fun and exciting to jump into something new right now, you’ll experience more success when you do address unfinished business from the past.  If you must sign a contract, change jobs, or make a major purchase (because life happens!), keep in mind that you may need to do some re-negotiating down the line.  Do your best to thoroughly research and review any proposals.  If possible, put off big decisions until July, when the energy will support forward momentum.

SCORPIO (10/23-11/21) – With two planets in retrograde, we’ll be feeling a strong pull towards the past this month.  Mars went retrograde last month and will continue this cycle through to the end of June.  On April 28th, Mercury also turned retrograde where it will remain until May 22nd.  Even the most intent Scorpio will be challenged to initiate something new because the retrograde cycles of Mars and Mercury encourage finishing what’s already been started. This retrograde influence can apply to work projects, creative endeavors, relationships or emotional work.

While you might want to force your attention on the future, you will experience more success this month when you address unfinished business from the past.  If you must sign a contract, change jobs, or make a major purchase (because life happens!), keep in mind that you may need to do some re-negotiating down the line.  Do your best to thoroughly research  and review any proposals.  If possible, put off big decisions until July, when the energy will support forward momentum.

Mars will be retrograde in your 2nd house of finance and self-worth until May 26th.  The timing won’t be right for large purchases, new business ventures or investments.  However, you can use the available energy to clean up your bookkeeping and to collect or pay any debts.  Old money making ideas will likely prove more fruitful than new ones.  Think back to some endeavors that you may have put on the back burner and reinvigorate your efforts.

With Mars as the traditional ruler of your Sun Sign, it’s likely that you feel its retrograde effects more acutely than other signs.  You won’t be able to just “power through” in your usual style.  Make an effort to align yourself with the slowing, contemplative energies to maximize this time period.

Mars retrograde can have an impact on your self-confidence this month.  Be on the lookout for self-sabotaging behaviors and ideas.  You may be more prone to repeat self-defeating habits, but with some awareness, you can nip negativity in the bud.  Have you ever had positive results when you neglected to value yourself?  Learn from the past so you don’t lose sight of how strong and amazing you truly are.

While it might seem more fun to think about the future, you will experience more success this month when you address unfinished business from the past.  If you must sign a contract, change jobs, or make a major purchase (because life happens!), keep in mind that you may need to do some re-negotiating down the line.  Do your best to thoroughly research  and review any proposals.  If possible, put off big decisions until July, when the energy will support forward momentum.

Through May 26th, Mars will be retrograde in your Sun Sign, transiting your 1st house of self.  You could feel some frustration that things aren’t moving as fast as you’d like.  Keep in mind that Mars is helping to slow things down so that you can review your current plans and renew your energy.  This time period is a valuable “pit stop” that will enable you to race forward in July, when Mars will be direct.

Mars retrograde can affect how you interact with others this month.  It can be tempting to divert your anger towards the people around you in order to avoid looking at what you need to change.  Look for productive ways to channel Mars’ high-voltage energy.  How can you do some “prep work” now to put you in a better position for new opportunities in the second half of this year?

This retrograde influence can apply to work projects, creative endeavors, relationships or emotional work.

The New Moon on May 6th will be in Taurus and your 5th house of romance, creativity and children.  This New Moon will support setting goals related to long-term relationships, stability within romantic partnerships, lucrative creative pursuits and starting a family.  Use this time to brainstorm, and then, revisit your goals in July, when the retrograde energy clears.  It will be easier to see a clear path forward at that time.

On May 20th, the Sun will shift from Taurus to Gemini, moving into your 6th house of daily work and wellness.  It could be difficult to focus on one thing at a time.  Use the available energy to complete routine tasks and clear some “busy work” off your plate.  It will be good timing to reconnect with your body.  Try a variety of enjoyable physical activities to keep things interesting.

HOROSCOPES – APRIL 2016

(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.)

ARIES (3/21-4/19) – Last month, we experienced a Solar and Lunar Eclipse, which stirred up change and emotions while setting the stage for the next six months of growth.  While we’ll feel things settling down this month, there will be a strange push-pull tension that can be frustrating at times.  The Aries New Moon on April 7th is the most powerful New Moon of the year for new beginnings.  However, mid-month, we’ll fall under the influence of both Mars and Mercury’s retrograde cycles, which will signal a time of slowing down and re-evaluation.

How can these two energies be balanced?  It will be necessary to recognize the value of taking a few steps back to prepare for forward momentum.  Picture an arrow drawn backwards on a bow.  On April 7th, the New Moon will occur in your 1st house of self and you’ll likely set your sights on some new personal goals.  Get clear on what you want, write down your goals, and then make the most of the days between the New Moon and April 18th in order to  take some initial steps before the retrograde energy kicks in.

On the 5th, Venus, planet of love, money and attraction, will move into your Sun Sign  and remain there for most of the month.  You can expect to be a magnet for the people and circumstances you desire.  Those around you will value your fiery confidence and enthusiastic approach to life.  It may feel as though you should be initiating a new adventure, but you’ll be most successful when you allow opportunities to come to you.  Most likely, you’ll be focused on picking up where you left off on a project or relationship.  Consider what endeavors have been on the “back burner” and re-ignite the flame!

Mid-month, we’ll begin two retrograde cycles that will turn our attention towards finishing what we’ve started.  Mercury in Taurus will turn retrograde in your 2nd house of finance on April 28th. However, we’ll be under the influence of what’s known as the “shadow period” beginning on the 18th.  It will be a time to clean up financial matters such as bookkeeping and debts, as well as finishing any work that you’ve been paid to complete.  Hold off on making major financial decisions for the next few months, if possible.

On April 17th, your ruling planet  Mars will turn retrograde kicking off a cycle lasting through to the end of June.  With Mars as your planetary ruler, you may feel this retrograde more personally than other Sun signs.  For you, Mars retrograde can create a mellowing effect –- you may be able to detach and see your situation more objectively.  It will be a time to focus on yourself and give yourself an internal and/or external makeover.

If you attempt to initiate new projects or romances, you’re likely to be met with resistance and may experience things “fizzling out.”  Best to work with what you have and make the most of your existing opportunities.  By the end of this retrograde cycle, you’ll likely be able to let go of what’s been in your way and be poised to move full speed ahead towards your goals.

The April 21st Full Moon will be in Scorpio, which can help bring hidden issues to the surface with an intimate partner.  Or, you may discover information you’ve been hiding from yourself.  Either way, it will be a valuable time to clear the air and get to the heart of matters.

 

TAURUS (4/20-5/20) – Last month, we experienced a Solar and Lunar Eclipse, which stirred up change and emotions while setting the stage for the next six months of growth.  While we’ll feel things settling down this month, there will be a strange push-pull tension that can be frustrating at times.  The Aries New Moon on April 7th is the most powerful New Moon of the year for new beginnings.  However, mid-month, we’ll fall under the influence of both Mars and Mercury’s retrograde cycles, which will signal a time of slowing down and re-evaluation.

How can these two energies be balanced?  It will be necessary to recognize the value of taking a few steps back to prepare for forward momentum.  Picture an arrow drawn backwards on a bow.  On April 7th, the Aries New Moon will occur in your 12th house of the subconscious.  It will be a powerful time to bring hidden dreams to light.  Your innate sense of patience will come in handy.  It will be a great time to map out a step-by-step plan that you can implement in a few months.  For now, turn your attention to the past and determine what needs to be addressed before you can move forward.

On the 5th, Venus, planet of love, money and attraction, will also move into your 12th house of the subconscious  and remain there for most of the month.  This will give you the ability to identify dreams you didn’t even realize you desired.  It’s possible that a situation will present itself that reminds you of your higher purpose.  Look for images in dreams or signs from the Universe that can orient you towards your ideal path.  Use the power of Venus to boost your confidence and courageously recognize your dreams.

Mid-month, we’ll begin two retrograde cycles that will turn our attention towards completing works in progress.  Mercury in your Sun Sign will turn retrograde on April 28th.  However, we’ll be under the influence of what’s known as the “shadow period” beginning on the 18th.  You could feel as if your thoughts are scrambled and miscommunications will be likely.  Allow extra time to travel and take care to clarify yourself in conversations.  Avoid making big decisions until after June 1st, when we’ll be completely clear of the Mercury retrograde influence.

On April 17th, Mars in Aries will turn retrograde kicking off a cycle lasting through to the end of June.  This could find you feeling more impatient than usual.  You’re scheduled for an inner awakening that can put you in touch with your passion.  Use the available energy to do some exploration.  Instead of jumping into something new, think back to the things that brought you joy in the past.  What have you abandoned that you need to bring back into your life?

If you attempt to initiate new projects or romances, you’re likely to be met with resistance and may experience things “fizzling out.”  Best to work with what you have and make the most of your existing opportunities.  By the end of this retrograde cycle, you’ll likely be able to let go of what’s been in your way and be poised to move full speed ahead towards your goals.

How can these two energies be balanced?  It will be necessary to recognize the value of taking a few steps back to prepare for forward momentum.  Picture an arrow drawn backwards on a bow.  On April 7th, the Aries New Moon will occur in your 11th house of friendship and community.  You’re poised to expand your social network this year and your people skills can help you shine.  It’s likely that new friendships are on the horizon, but first you may need to reconnect with groups or people with whom you’ve fallen out of touch.

On the 5th, Venus, planet of love, money and attraction, will also move into your 11th house of friendship and community and remain there for most of the month.  This will help you attract leadership opportunities.  Others will likely be drawn to your optimism, confidence and willingness to try new things.  Think less about going after what you want and more about exuding the qualities that will magnetize others to you.

Mid-month, we’ll begin two retrograde cycles that will turn our attention towards completing works in progress.  On April 28th, Mercury, your ruling planet, will turn retrograde in your 12th house of the subconscious.  However, we’ll be under the influence of what’s known as the “shadow period” beginning on the 18th.  Avoid impulsive actions or making commitments until after June 1st, when we’ll be completely clear of the Mercury retrograde influence.  Take the time to carefully consider your goals and ask for spiritual guidance.

You may find it unusually difficult to express yourself clearly.  Be willing to slow down your typical rapid-fire conversational style and make sure you are being understood.  It won’t be a good month for decision making as you’ll probably have a confusing array of ideas occupying your mind.  Jot everything down for review when the energy clears.

On April 17th, Mars in Aries will turn retrograde kicking off a cycle lasting through to the end of June.  This could find you feeling more impatient than usual.  Be cautious when dealing with others -– a headstrong attitude could interfere with your usual, tactful manner.  The good news is that you’re becoming fired up about your ambitions.  The trick will be not to steamroll others in your zeal.

If you attempt to initiate new projects or romances, you’re likely to be met with resistance and may experience things “fizzling out.”  Best to work with what you have and make the most of your existing opportunities.  Look for ways to advance group projects already in progress.  By the end of this retrograde cycle, the timing will be ideal for implementing new ideas.

The April 21st Full Moon will be in Scorpio, which can help bring hidden issues to the surface—especially when it comes to your work, relationships with coworkers or your health.  Use this investigative Full Moon to come out of denial and face facts head on.

You’re poised to take your career to the next level and will likely gain public recognition for your work this year.  You could be feeling anxious about starting a new phase of life.  Change is in the air, but sit tight.  Use your innate ability to stabilize yourself and lay a sturdy foundation for your future ventures.  What can you put a wrap on that will free your time and energy for the big opportunities on the horizon?

On the 5th, Venus, planet of love, money and attraction, will also move into your 10th house of career and public image and remain there for most of the month.  This will help you attract leadership opportunities—a raise or promotion could be in the cards.  Your unique talents and personal style can gain you favorable attention from authority figures.  It’s not a good time to challenge those in charge.  Instead, charm them into acknowledging your worth.

Mid-month, we’ll begin two retrograde cycles that will turn our attention towards finishing works in progress and renewing our relationships.  Mercury in Taurus will be transiting your 11th house of friendship and community and will turn retrograde on April 28th.  However, we’ll be under the influence of what’s known as the “shadow period” beginning on the 18th.

It will be a wonderful time to reconnect with old friends and renew your affiliations with groups or organizations.  Avoid committing to new undertakings until after June 1st, when we’ll be completely clear of the Mercury retrograde influence.  Instead, focus on finishing what you’ve started and renewing your relationship with those who can help further your efforts.  It’s not a good time for bold moves forward.  You’ll feel more “in the flow” when you can stay within your comfort zone and help others to feel secure.

LEO (7/23-8/22) – Last month, we experienced a Solar and Lunar Eclipse, which stirred up change and emotions while setting the stage for the next six months of growth.  While we’ll feel things settling down this month, there will be a strange push-pull tension that can be frustrating at times.  The Aries New Moon on April 7th is the most powerful New Moon of the year for new beginnings.  However, mid-month, we’ll fall under the influence of both Mars and Mercury’s retrograde cycles, which will signal a time of slowing down and re-evaluation.

HOROSCOPES – FEBRUARY 2016

(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.)

ARIES (3/21-4/19) – With Mercury in retrograde last month, 2016 has had a slow start.  However, we’ll clear the “shadow phase” of this phenomenon in time for February’s New Moon on the 8th.  We’ll be infused with a forward momentum that can help us get going on our New Year’s resolutions.  This Aquarius New Moon is ideal for goal setting.  The energy is ripe for innovative ideas and you’ll be well positioned to welcome new friends into your life.

During the first half of the month, an energizing Mars-Pluto sextile can positively influence your intimate relationships, business partnerships or relationship to authority figures.  That’s not to say things will feel 100% comfortable in this department.  It’s likely that you’ll face some facts that you have been avoiding.  Mars is activating you to take more responsibility in your personal and professional relationships.

Any conflicts that may occur with loved ones or business associates can serve to clarify confusing issues.  By being honest with yourself and others, you’ll be able to establish a healthy balance of power in your relationships.

Uranus continues to square Pluto tightly this month, which can create feelings of restlessness and stress.  This planetary aspect has been at work since 2010 helping you to acknowledge your inner desires and capabilities.  With Uranus in your Sun sign, many Aries are feeling the urge for freedom!  Yet, Pluto is squaring your Sun, which can cause you to put a lot of pressure on yourself to achieve your goals.

You’re meant to find a balance between these forces.  Any intensity you may be experiencing now is a signal for you to take a step back and evaluate your needs.  The Uranus-Pluto square will be in effect through May of 2017.  Take your time during this process and consider what might be holding you back from your true desires.  How can you free your time, energy and resources so they can flow in the direction of your dreams?

The Sun will be in Aquarius through February 17th.  This first half of the month will be an auspicious time to network for business and pleasure.  Group projects that may have been delayed due to last month’s Mercury retrograde cycle can now gain needed momentum.  On the 18th, the Sun will shift into Pisces and your 12th house of spirituality.  A more tranquil vibe will prevail for the remainder of the month.  Take time out to nourish your soul by connecting with your higher power.  Music and dance can fill you with universal love.

During the first half of the month, an energizing Mars-Pluto sextile can positively influence your romantic or business partnerships.  You’re scheduled for a healing in these relationships but you may have to face some facts you’ve been avoiding.  Mars is activating you to take responsibility for your feelings and desires.  You may be seeking more freedom, excitement and/or adventure.

Uranus continues to square Pluto tightly this month, which can create a subconscious restlessness.  This planetary aspect has been at work since 2010 helping you to acknowledge and bring forward your hidden talents.  With Uranus in your 12th house of spirituality and the subconscious, you may be working with hidden dreams, desires and feelings.   With Pluto in your 9th house of travel, adventure, philosophy and higher education, you could be letting go of an old version of “the truth” in order to receive new information.

While the Sun is in Capricorn through January 19th, you may feel especially introverted and crave some solitude to focus on completing personal projects.  From the 20th on, the Sun will be in your Sun Sign, which will boost your social life and natural inclinations to get out and about.

The Full Moon on January 23rd will be in Leo and your 7th house of partnership.  This Full Moon can create a romantic mood and help you to spice up your love life with a special partner.

 

PISCES (2/19-3/20) – Happy New Year, Pisces!  For many cultures around the world, it’s traditional to make resolutions and start afresh this time of year.  However, astrology follows a different cycle (the Astrological New Year is on the Spring Equinox, which falls on March 19th this year).  This month, you may feel that it doesn’t seem like the right time for new beginnings.  Mercury will be retrograde between January 5th and 25th, a phenomenon that discourages forward momentum and turns our attention towards the past.

It will be advisable to reflect on what remains “unfinished business” in your life and make the most of this time completing projects.  With Mercury transiting your 12th house during the first few days of this retrograde, you could have more access to your subconscious.  Use these days to process emotions or memories from your past.

On January 8th, Mercury moves back into Capricorn and your 11th house of friendship and community.  For the remainder of the month, you could be inspired to reconnect with friends or business associates.  People from your past could surface around this time and you’ll have the chance to address any unresolved issues.

Last month Uranus went direct, reactivating the Uranus-Pluto Square.  These planets continue to square each other tightly this month, which can leave you feeling fired up about your self worth and/or financial situation.  Uranus, in Aries, is awakening your ability to value yourself.

With Pluto transiting your 11th house, you may be discovering which of your friends and social groups encourage your success.  Use the slowing energy of Mercury retrograde to evaluate the friendships in your life and consider letting go of any associations that feel negative.

The Saturn-Neptune square will be activated by Mars this month.  This transit will be especially powerful mid-month and will be useful in getting practical about some of your dreams.  With Mars in the investigative sign of Scorpio, it can be a great time to uncover hidden emotions.

You’re being called to grow by putting yourself in situations that require you to learn.  You may be inspired to go back to school, study with a mentor or do some traveling in order to expand your life experiences.  With Neptune in your Sun Sign, you may be feeling the effects of the Saturn-Neptune square more acutely than other signs.

You’re being given access to more of your intuition, creativity and connection to a higher power.  Sometimes all of this energy can feel overwhelming!  Look for ways to structure your time and channel all your inspiration into a constructive outlet.  A close friend or partner may be able to help you get organized.

This Month’s New Moon will be in Capricorn, which can help you make new friends and attract supportive people into your life.  However, because Mercury will be retrograde, it could be difficult to get a clear read on any new people you meet around this time.  Best to avoid jumping into new relationships or groups until next month.

While the Sun is in Capricorn through January 19th, you may benefit from business networking, especially if you reconnect with people from your past.  From the 20th on, the Sun will be in Aquarius, which can stir creative ideas and help you uncover innovative solutions to long-standing problems.

The Full Moon on January 23rd will be in Leo and your 6th house of daily work, health and wellness.  This Full Moon can help to bring more fun into your day-to-day routines.  Don’t be afraid to stand out.  You’re likely to gain recognition for your consistent efforts.
