May Horoscopes

May Horoscopes

This month, we take a look back as a collective and ask ourselves: How could we have done better? Pluto, and Saturn are retrograde, and these two planets hold the major themes for this year and early next year.

When the outer planets go retrograde, we usually feel the influence on a collective level more than a personal one. The Pluto retrograde cycle lasts five months; it stations direct on October 3. Whenever inner planets (Mercury, Venus, and Mars) go retrograde, we tend to experience the influence in our day-to-day lives. The outer planets present general themes we look at as a collective. They bring us full-circle in many ways or help shift our consciousness about matters related to that planet. 

Specifically, Pluto in Capricorn shines a light on corruption, institutional wrongdoing and oppression, and deceit. As Pluto moves retrograde, we might have the chance to bring some of these issues to light.

Saturn, the planetary police officer, is also retrograde, and they’re both in the same sign. The good news is: If you’ve been working hard and staying focused on something, you have manifesting power right now! Saturn likes to reward hard work and diligence, but it also wants to make sure you’re being authentic to yourself in the process. Otherwise, it might nudge you back on track.

 Pluto retrograde is a time to reevaluate the power dynamics in your relationships. If you have been involved in a relationship that has an element of control or possessiveness, you could find ways to free yourself from those patterns, if not the relationship, itself. If you have been obsessing about a person or a past situation, Pluto invites you to surrender and let go. 

If you have planets around 19˚ - 23˚ of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn, you will feel the influence of these planets more intensely than others. So, don’t give up, no matter how challenging the test of faith.

On May 4, the new moon in Taurus invites you to set realistic intentions and plant seeds (literally or metaphorically). It encourages you to be patient, as anything you start will take time to manifest. It will be lasting, though.

April Horoscopes

April Horoscopes

The sun in Aries motivates us to take a risk, advance forward, and start new beginning. It’s no coincidence Aries season is also springtime here in the Northern Hemisphere, when blossoms are bursting open, and new life abounds. I will post this on April Fool’s Day, April 1. I think of the Fool card in the tarot deck. It looks like this:

The Fool card represents a soul incarnating, and each card in the Major Arcana explains a different aspect of human life the Fool must encounter on its way to enlightenment. The Fool in the card has everything it needs (symbolized by the bag it carries), a white rose to express spiritual innocence, and a loyal guardian symbolized by the dog. The Fool has wisdom packed into its pouch, and it looks upward toward the heavens as it walks forward. It’s not “foolish” as we might think of it; rather, the term “fool” implies the absence of fear and the willingness to step into the unknown.

Consider stepping into April with this same spirit. Be open to adventure, willing to keep looking up, and trusting in the universe to guide and protect you along the way.

Before you take a step off the proverbial cliff and into the new unknown, you may have to clear some karma, face fears, and do some letting go. Because of that, you could feel as if you’re taking one big step forward... only to stand still, catch your breath, reassess, and do some releasing/letting go.

March Horoscopes

March Horoscopes

We enter a new seven-year cycle of change and progress this month as Uranus enters Taurus on March 6. If you are born during the first three days of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius, or if your moon or rising sign are at the early degrees of fixed signs, prepare yourself for significant turning points in life that will manifest over the next three months. Because of this transition, I can guarantee this will not be a boring month for any of us!

Uranus moves into a new sign every seven years, and we see technological advances and progress in the fields associated with that sign. In Taurus, that means environmental, textiles, currency and the economy, earth and even seismic shifts, possessions, and goods. You can read more about this cycle here.

In addition to this planetary shift, we are also in a Mercury retrograde cycle from March 5-28 in the other-worldly sign of Pisces. Mercury rules mental processes, and with its placement in Pisces, you have the chance to deeply explore the creative and spiritual dimensions of yourself. At the same time, you could feel foggy, unclear about circumstances in your life. You may question others’ motives or doubt your intuition. You could feel as if a cloud hangs overhead blocking the light. The concept of the dark night of the soul explains a period of emotional intensity in which you feel a painful separation from God and others. Alone. During those moments of doubt, you dig deep within yourself to connect with your divine spark, and in doing so, you arrive at faith. If you have moments like these this month, understand they may be critical turning points in your life, and keep going! Often, these crisis points loosen the ego's grip, helping you break down fear-based structures. That process of surrender helps you open energetic space for a new beginning or manifestation.

February Horoscopes

February Horoscopes

January’s eclipses provided an intense start to 2019. February is a time to ground and center as the eclipse energy subsides. Several planets in earth signs (Venus, Saturn, Pluto, and later Mars) can help support you in taking practical steps forward in your life this month, but they encourage you to do so with caution.

Your attention may be focused on love and relationships, with Valentine’s Day in the middle of the month. Venus, the planet dedicated to romance, shines in careful Capricorn from February 3 on, making this a time to make careful choices in your love life. If your relationship is rock solid, you can make plans and set intentions together, especially at the time of the new moon on February 4. On February 18 and 22, you could have two chances to rethink your relationship dynamics and make changes to have more satisfying and healthy bonds.

The full moon on February 19 opens your access to imagination. Your dreams may offer guidance or symbolism relating to your life. Notice any creative impulses, and indulge them. You could be receiving a calling to live up to your highest potential, and creativity is a key to gain access to that information.

The moon’s placement in Virgo is excellent for cleaning, organizing, decluttering, or taking a detox. You could also feel more aware of criticism than usual. Therefore, be gentle with your loved ones, and find constructive ways to offer feedback to avoid seeming judgmental.

2019 Horoscopes

2019 Horoscopes

Astrological highlights of 2019:

2019 closes out this decade, and some of the most significant transits set the stage for 2020, which will energetically loom over us. Because of this, 2019 could feel like a transitional year, one in which you will either open or close a chapter in life. Moving through any transitional time, it helps to ground your energy through dedicated spiritual practices, physical exercise, or designating one person in your life to be your "reality check." If you can maintain pragmatic optimism, 2019 will be your year!

Jupiter is one of the biggest stars in our astrological story this year. The planet of luck, expansion, and faith, is in its own sign of Sagittarius. It wants us to go all out, and it can fool us into thinking anything is possible! So, you could overcommit, spread yourself too thin, or overestimate your projected income versus your expenses. Instead, focus on your top priorities so you can end the year feeling accomplished, and make wise financial choices. There are several indicators of an uncertain economy this year and in 2020.

The first month of the year will feature most of the themes you'll encounter in 2019. We start with an eclipse, the first of five total this year, on January 5 in Capricorn. Eclipses present us with new information, often unrealized or hidden truth. Sometimes, they deliver our marching orders from the universe for the fulfillment of our life's mission. This first one is close to Saturn, the planetary police officer, which gives it a serious tone. It could amplify your ambition and push you back to work after the holiday break. You could also learn news of financial or professional matters that could shift your storyline. On January 21, the lunar eclipse in Aquarius asks us to revisit themes from 2018 and ask: Did I make the right decision? Accept the past, and keep your awareness on what healthy, life-enhancing changes you can make in the present. Keep in mind: The two weeks between eclipses can feel very intense! The North Node in Cancer encourages you to feel your feeling-- the joy, sadness, anger, and all.

December Horoscopes

December Horoscopes

This last month of 2018 will feel like the resolution chapter of an intense novel. It’s a time to reflect and recharge before beginning 2019.

We start the month with Mercury still retrograde until December 6. This Mercury retrograde has been particularly challenging for decision-making and communication within relationships. When Mercury goes retrograde, it asks us to fine-tune the way we express ourselves to others, and it’s a time to be honest without hiding or holding back. Mercury stationed retrograde in Sagittarius. The nature of Sagittarius is adaptable, and you may have overlooked details or had a few do-overs, which can be frustrating when you make a holiday purchase only to change your mind the next day.

Keep in mind: Mercury retrograde is a time to go inward and to deeply explore your inner worlds. Anything out of sync in your life will present itself for you to see and remedy so you can be in alignment with your higher self.

On December 1, Mercury slides back into Scorpio, and hidden truth comes into light. If you have had trust issues come up over the past several months, you could learn or intuit clear answers. Mercury’s move back into Scorpio will be especially important for helping us uncover the facts in recent political/social matters. It’s a good investigative influence.

November Horoscopes

November Horoscopes

November starts with Scorpio Season when we are asked to plunge the depths of our deepest yearnings, core truth, buried emotions, and limiting fears. It's a time to slay your inner demons and then experience the grace that follows processes of transformation.

Two significant cycles change this month.

On November 6, the nodal axis shifts from Leo/Aquarius to Cancer/Capricorn. The North Node will be moving from expressive, dramatic Leo into emotional, maternal Cancer. The nodes change signs every 18 months, and the North Node symbolizes our point of focus, our North Star. The North Node in Cancer invites us to care for and protect those we love, to understand the difference between emotional safety and guardedness, and to balance ambition with emotional connections. The South Node will be in the sign of Capricorn, which is the sign related to the public life. At the opposite end of that axis is Cancer, which is all about the home and family. You could feel an inner tug-of-war between these two polarities, especially if you are a Capricorn, Cancer, Libra, or Aries.

October Horoscopes

October Horoscopes

Many of you are probably feeling glimpses of what October has in store for us. Venus stations retrograde on October 5, but the shadow periods started on September 2, when it started slowing down. Issues regarding relationships and finances could be at the forefront of your mind. Venus retrograde is a 40-day period to look backward, reviewing past decisions. If anything comes full circle, you get to make different choices this time. Therefore, you could encounter repeat performances of relationships or circumstances from the past that feel eerily familiar. These things happen because retrograde cycles help you break patterns to become a healthier and more integrated person.

September Horoscopes

September Horoscopes

September is a month for transitions. With Mars finally direct and moving forward, life feels in motion once again. The eclipses in July and August helped shake things up for many of us. Eclipses spotlight the nodal axis line, and during that time, you gain more clarity about your soul's purpose. You can access the courage you need to make changes in life to better align with your purpose. However, with Mars retrograde throughout the summer, enacting those changes was a very slow process. In fact, you might have felt stuck, confused, or tired. The result might have been heightened awareness without action... and then frustration! This month, that all changes. 

On September 22, the equinox ushers in a time of movement. The Sun moves into Libra, a Cardinal sign. Cardinal signs begin on solstice and equinox points. Cardinal signs are all about action and taking the initiative to make things happen. They also mark the change of seasons. Leading up to the 22nd, you might feel a burning desire to finish a project, reach a goal, or make a change. 

August Horoscopes

August Horoscopes

We have been in an "Eclipse Season," a period of emotional intensity between eclipses. It started July 12, and it concludes with the solar eclipse on August 11. Eclipses, being super full and new moons, wake dormant or suppressed emotions, which can rise to the surface of your conscious awareness. Heightened emotions alert us to what is in or out of alignment in our lives. They spur us forward, fueling our energy for personal change.

Because Mars is closer than it has been in 15 years and retrograde (until August 27), some of those emotions might include anger, frustration, passion, or courage. (You can see a live viewing of Mars here!) The heightened awareness you experience right now will ripple change into every area of your life. 

This eclipse (as well as the one on July 27), lies on the Aquarius/Leo axis, one that reminds you to use your talents to contribute to the whole. In living the truest expressions of yourself, you shape the global community. So, if you are looking for a way to make a difference, ask what most brings you fulfillment and satisfaction, and do that. 

July Horoscopes

July Horoscopes

This is going to be a month to remember because so much is changing both in our collective as well as in personal lives. You could feel fireworks all month long! If you feel like you're in a major transition but don't quite know what it's about, you're not alone. Several astrological indicators of change are all happening this month. 

First of all, we have two eclipses, a solar one on July 12 and a lunar one on July 27. In the two-week period between eclipses, you have powerful realizations about your life, including what changes you need to make to live a more purposeful life. You could feel heightened emotions as well, especially passion, frustration, or anger, as the moon will be conjunct Mars on the 27th just before the eclipse. 

June Horoscopes

June Horoscopes

The sun steals the show this month as it slides into Cancer on the solstice June 21. Anytime the sun enters a cardinal sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn), we can feel inspired to take action or to move forward in our lives. Cardinal ingresses happen at each equinox or solstice point. The equinox in March starts the astrological year, and it is a time for planting seeds. By the solstice in June, we begin to see a harvest. We can better see the manifestation of our intentions. In the Northern Hemisphere, cultures have celebrated the June solstice as a feast of fertility, abundance, and harvest. 

Shortly after the solstice, however, Mars stations retrograde and begins to square Uranus, which moved into Taurus in May shortly afterward, starting July 9. Mars is the planet of action, motivation, and conflict for a cause. In retrograde, Mars slows things down, allowing you time to reassess goals. A retrograde period is not usually a favorable time to launch a new endeavor, as we often feel pulled inward and could experience delays.

May Horoscopes

May Horoscopes

As we enter into the month we get a nice break after April, when we experienced the buildup of dynamic cardinal energy... within a Mercury retrograde period. Quite frustrating! April ended with a powerful Full Moon in Scorpio that was pretty intense for us all because it brought up a whole a lot of suppressed or hidden issues, especially in relationships. Anything unsettled had to come to the surface and you likely have had to get real about working for you and what wasn’t. Now, take a deep breath. The first week of May is like the rest period In an interval training. Relax and enjoy it!! 

Then, on May 13, things start to change. The biggest astrological event happening this month features the planet Uranus, the planet of change, surprises, and shocks. It moves into a new sign, Taurus, on May 15. When you think about this planet, think about lightening- sudden, and exciting. It’s all about breakthroughs. It changes signs about every 7 years, and when it does, we experience changes in different areas of our lives.  

March Horoscopes

March Horoscopes

March Horoscopes

We start a new astrological year at the Equinox on March 20, when the Sun enters Aries. In the weeks leading up to that point, you may feel driven to start something new or take action to move forward in some area of your life. The influence of Aries can inspire you (regardless of your sun sign) to move, break out of your comfort zone, and overcome fears. I encourage you to take advantage of this energy, and let it motivate you to do at least one brave thing this month. 

At nighttime, when you first turn off the lights, you can’t see anything. Your eyes adjust, though, allowing you to see in new ways. You could feel this way at times throughout the month… in the dark. This month could feel transitional in many ways, and you might feel uncertain. Rather than looking for what’s next, try to see the present in new ways. 

Your logical mind might be confused about the future, wanting to know how to reach your desired destination, but your heart holds a reserve of faith. As the connecting point between your body and soul, it whispers to you, “Keep going. You’ve got this! It will all be okay.” 

      This month’s astrological news features a partial solar eclipse on February 15. Eclipses signify change, and because this eclipse happens at a degree opposite from the one we all witnessed this past August, it could magnify any themes present for you or for the collective at that time. So, before reading your horoscope, reflect back over the past six months. What life challenges have you experienced? What themes have been up for you? The answers to those questions could determine how this month’s energies play out for you.  Leo rules the heart, and its opposite sign Aquarius rules the circulatory system. Your heart informs you of your purpose and connects you to your soul’s desire. When you open your heart chakra (through prayer, love, celebration, grief, creative projects, or intention), you have access to more courage to live your life. When your heart is open, you can only live your truth because anything else causes spiritual and even physical pain.  When you live authentically, honoring your deepest soul desires, you circulate positive energy out into the world. The Aquarius/Leo axis emphasizes the relationship between the expression of the self and contribution to the community— the heart and circulatory system.    Because Valentine’s Day is also this month, and we are thinking about heart-centered things, I wanted to try something a little different with this month’s horoscopes. I want to focus this month’s messages on the subject of love. I also am writing this the week of my wedding, and love is on my mind right now! Next month, I’ll be back with my usual monthly forecast, but for now, let’s let love rule!  So much has shifted in the world, and more change is on the horizon. We are living in an exciting time during a paradigm shift. As a result, our thoughts and emotions are more influential in determining our destiny. You may have been contemplating how you can live your purpose on a deeper level; as a result, you have perhaps become more in touch with your personal desires and goals. Living the purest expression of yourself could be the key to unlocking your potential. If you were ever told you weren’t good enough for something in the past, give it another try! Maybe the timing was off. Let your deep desires express themselves in incremental ways, and you will avoid disrupting all you have built thus far.  By the time the Sun enters Pisces on February 18, you can more easily surrender to the magic of a co-creative process. Release any potential resistance to positivity by allowing yourself to feel more joy in everyday life up to that point.Finally, understand your limitations. You cannot singlehandedly solve problems or create solutions for big societal issues. However, you can connect with others, gather with friends, pray, and do at least one thing in your everyday life to make a difference in the world. When the Sun is in Aquarius, we feel more compelled to see beyond our individual lives and contribute to the whole, but we get to this point by more intensely feeling our passion and experiencing a heart expansion. From within, love radiates out.

February Horoscopes

This month’s astrological news features a partial solar eclipse on February 15. Eclipses signify change, and because this eclipse happens at a degree opposite from the one we all witnessed this past August, it could magnify any themes present for you or for the collective at that time. So, before reading your horoscope, reflect back over the past six months. What life challenges have you experienced? What themes have been up for you? The answers to those questions could determine how this month’s energies play out for you.

Leo rules the heart, and its opposite sign Aquarius rules the circulatory system. Your heart informs you of your purpose and connects you to your soul’s desire. When you open your heart chakra (through prayer, love, celebration, grief, creative projects, or intention), you have access to more courage to live your life. When your heart is open, you can only live your truth because anything else causes spiritual and even physical pain.

 

December Horoscopes

December Horoscopes

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 19):

I hope you have travel plans this holiday season. Your wild spirit and sense of adventure could reach an all-time high. If you don’t make the most of this vibrant energy, you could end up feeling stuck in a rut. And I ask you: Is there anything sadder than a bored Aries? So, plan mini-adventures all month long. Then, you will close the year with a bang.

That doesn’t necessarily mean this month will be all hearts, smiles, and laughter, however. In fact, Mercury in retrograde from December 3 through December 22 could stir up a few conflicts or, at the very least, misunderstandings. You always have a choice. To engage or not to engage; that is the question. What is the best course of action? Is it to fight or let things slide? This month, you don’t want to allow minor squabbles to get you down. So, choose your battles wisely, and try not to let others' mistakes or misunderstandings cause you to go down an anxiety spiral.

November Horoscopes

November Horoscopes

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21):

Happy birthday! November kicks off what might be the best year of your life! Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion, moved into your sign last month, and it will stay for the next year. Use this time to plant seeds, start new beginnings, and take risks. Anything you begin this year, whether a new job, relationship, health routine, or creative endeavor, will pay off in the future. So, think big, and resist being distracted by short-term projects, half-hearted romantic interests, or place-holder jobs. Use this dynamic energy to manifest great things in your life.

October Horoscopes

October Horoscopes

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 22 - OCTOBER 22):

Balance: One of your sign's keywords. While others might see you as poised, graceful, and steady, your internal world often seems quite the opposite. To achieve balance, you often swing from one extreme to another. You have moments of indecisiveness, during which your mind works overtime to weigh pros and cons. Afraid of upsetting anyone, you can replay conversations in your mind and obsess about what you wish you would have said differently.  As an air sign, you are always thinking. The past three months may have activated these tendencies more than ever. You might wonder, How can I get a reprieve from my thoughts? The answer is simple: Feel your heart. Have a good cry; no matter whether your tears are from joy or sorrow.

July Horoscopes

July Horoscopes

Cancer (June 21-July 22):

Happy birthday! For a second, let’s consider the crab, your sign’s symbol. It likes to hide in the sand when things get too intense. You might feel that way sometimes but forget about that now. It's your birthday season--time for you to shine! In fact, with several personal planets hanging out in your sign at the beginning of the month, you might have the motivation to get out and explore new places, meet new people, and find hidden talents. In other words: You don’t get to hide away in a protective shell. People love you and want to see you. Seize the opportunity to make it happen. After all, this is the season of pool parties, summer BBQs, and laid-back events.
