Aries: This is a “clean up paint up fix up” week for you. Many little projects will seem to appear out pf the blue, but that is not really the case. When you take an honest look at the big fun seemingly surprise experience, you will see that is has been on the way for quite a while. As far as I can tell, kids, cars and houses are never really Paid In Full. Just when things are humming along one of them (or maybe more ) appears with a big fat need. The biggest and most important investment in this cycle is that of your time. You don’t really have that much on hand, so your time management skills will be put to the test. These are just a few of the Uranian lessons that you will get to dance for the next 7 years, while he sets up housekeeping in your Sun Sign. Since you are never short on enthusiasm
you will definitely roll with the changes. Given time, you will discover that while you hadn’t consciously made this list of adjustments, you may resist but only for a moment or two. Once those wiggly moments pass, you will find a way to make it all your own idea. In no time, you will move past Victim Speak and become your very own agent of change. Change is the only constant in life, and while this cycle may accelerate the transformations, these are necessary to your overall fulfillment.
Taurus: This week you will see how everything old is new again. I have a friend who hasn’t stopped complaining to his loving Wife, about his skinny ’70s neckties that she had dumped years ago, since the first time he caught her watching White Collar. Every time the leading man walks on the scene in his skinny tie, my friend goes off on a tangent. It seems that if you hang on to anything long enough, it circles back into your life. Except polyester, that needs to stay gone like Disco Duck gone. Granted you cannot rewrite History, but you can always look at it from a fresh perspective. Even experiences that your thought were failures, were actually successes at something else. Remember, that this is a nostalgic journey, not a maudlin one. Looking back with wisdom guarantees that you can truly make peace with the Past and live completely in the Now. Once you see how every step along the way has brought you to this cycle of achievement, you can really embrace the expansive powers of Jupiter in your Sun Sign. This is a success cycle, one that you won’t see for another 12 years. By releasing the mental and emotional glitches of the Past, you can move forward without regrets. Embrace it sweetie, life really Is this good !
Gemini: Isn’t it amazing that life can repeat a beat, so long after you think that you have processed the lesson? The thing is, that the same lessons may pass by a few times before you recognize the repeat pattern. The beauty of it is, that once you have truly integrated the lesson inherent, it becomes a fuzzy image on your periphery. Once you have amassed that knowledge, you will find it easy to watch it pass by like a bullet train, knowing that is a vehicle meant for someone else. Should you discover that one of your beloveds chooses to take that ride, you will offer a brief tidbit of advice and then you will do the “wait and see” thing, while they decide to ask for more information or to just wade in all by themselves. Saturn has been pecking at you for the last 2 1/2 years like a hungry turkey vulture. None of the Air Signs escaped his attention while he transited Libra.
Not only has he taught you how to let go of attachments and assumptions, but also he has left you with the awareness that trying to learn for somebody else is a foolish waste of precious time. Your systems are perfected, your contingency plans are well established and your lessons have lessened. And you now have the realization that growing up doesn’t mean growing old. C’mon sugar you know that you are timeless.
Cancer: Since this week begins as a very powerful Lunar High for you, it is only natural that you will spend some time soul searching. It’s as though you have discovered a bottomless well of emotions, and it’s so deep that when you drop in a coin you can’t hear it hit the bottom. Since you Are a Moon Child, the depths of your feelings is not a big surprise, it’s the fishy things swimming around in the dark that may concern you. Pluto has a shovel and a snorkel and he doesn’t fear the darkness, so his journey through Capricorn will work to your advantage.
Yes, you may feel the need for a Hazmat suit as you dig through layers of muck and gunge, but how else can you be freed from ages of gnarly feelings ? While this may not be a pretty process, itsa very necessary one and what follows is true beauty. Everyone has a shadow, and while you would never let it make your choices, you need to identify it, so that it doesn’t sneak up on you. Now is the time to grab a cup of cocoa and your journal. In a very brief amount of time,
you will be refreshed and free of inner caca. How cool is that?
Leo: The theme of this week is a twofer, honour and responsibility. You will find yourself in a place of prominence at the oddest times. Of course you Must dress for success at all times, since the spotlight will find you at any moment. The responsibility factor has to do with using your talents wisely. Nope, it has nothing to do with bearing the weight of the world, that never works out well. If you have slumbering talents, they are sure to be nagging atcha right now. Perhaps you could find a hobby that accesses those gifts. Better yet, by living experientially you could find some aspects of your abilities that would apply to your everyday life. The honour part of the lesson has to do with living in such a way that your teachers are speaking through your actions. It’s also a bonus since, others will seek you as a Mentor and you keep the teachings alive in perpetuity. The Full Moon is on the rise and when she gets here you can bask in her glow, knowing that regardless of the crisis, you kept your cool and fixed whatever hit the fan.
Pride is a big thing for a Leo, and by giving every experience your best efforts you can have the pride that you deserve. This is the time to dress in your best and do your best as well ! I mean really, you don’t want to be in the spotlight with mismatched socks, and pizza dribble on your shirt, do ya?
Virgo: The opposition of Venus to Mars in your Sun Sign still has you wobbling just a wee bit. Granted, most folks will have no clue that your energy level isn’t
since, you will still do a great job of taking care of business, but at the end of the day you will probably be well used up. Not to worry, Rice Krispies make a great dinner, and you had a massive salad for lunch so you will survive this. In truth, it’s Mars that brings the long term lesson. Consider that he normally stays in a Sign for 30 to 45 days. However every few years he does a Direct/Retrograde/Direct journey and that what makes him a long-term guest in a Sun Sign. He officially entered Virgo last November and he has made himself so very comfortable that he will stay there until July of this year. Yes I know how much you dislike patience lessons, but they are an integral part of life, the less you let them frazzle you, the better your life will be. Your coworkers have no idea just how hard you are on yourself. Even when you are doing your very bestest, you still expect to set the bar higher than before. This cycle will help you break free from that particularly toxic expectation on yourself. Of course your dedication to excellence is still in place and whatever you accomplish will be done impeccably, but not at the expense of your Wellness. You will continue this dance until July, but by then it will be a happy dance !
Libra: This is respite time for you. Sure, you will remain focused and determined in everything that you do, Saturn has you well trained, but you also know that a little time out can be a big treat. Medicine Walks and other solitary pursuits can offer massive rewards for you in this cycle. While you are at it, why not take a close personal inventory of this powerful Saturn cycle that is grinding down for you? While you will always have your tremendous sensitivity, you are also able to
get ahead of it in trying times. No longer will you find yourself wobbling like a Weeble over things that you can’t control. Giving it to God really has worked for you. While it may feel creepy to step back and wait for life to self-correct, that very action speeds up the resolution to your problems. AND your problems no longer crush you and your dreams. Folks may think that you are so much stronger than ever before, when in truth you are simply expressing the power that you always had, in fact you have reserves that you’ll never need to use.
Sure by next Autumn, you’re gonna miss Saturn, but you will never forget his lessons. You are wiser and stronger due to his presence, and you’ll never loose that.
Scorpio: Oh geez, I hope you didn’t have a lot of lengthy plans for this week since, supposedly little projects will need more attention than they usually might have. This is just the Full Moon testing your reflexes and your firm resolve.
That’s no biggy because you are one of the most perseverant Signs of the Zodiac. Here’s the scenario. You have fallen in love with the perfect Entertainment Center, you can see it sitting in your family room. Of course you will fulfill your due diligence. You’ll price shop for ages and when the one you want goes on sale, you’ll even have a coupon code that you found on line. You
Will find a friend with a truck and head out to buy your new pretty thing. Once you get the box home, you’ll excitedly open it up and take out the 9,000 little bitty numbered and lettered parts. That’s when you’ll discover that there are no directions in the box. Geez. Okay you could wait until your friend can schlepp you back to the store, and return it for another, but you really really want his furniture built. That’s when you’ll call the manufacturer in Taiwan and sweettalk them into faxing you the instruction booklet. Within a day or two and a couple gallons of coffee, Viola, it’s done. Let’s hear it for dogged determination. Plus when you show your new toy off to company, you’ll have a funny story to tell. This is one of those times when being stubborn is an asset
Sagittarius: Sure, you may be able to make things looks easy peasy, but there are some mighty big plans that you are presently implementing. Life is changing and you can see where your chosen field of endeavor is heading and you are soooo ready to carve a path into uncharted territory. In fact with this week’s intercept you may look like a Sag and crack jokes like a Sag, but your inner wheels are rolling along like a veddy focused Capricorn. Your business sense is so sharp, that you will find opportunities where others will obliviously walk by. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that you are networking like a pro. As usual, your sunny radiance will draw people to you, but once they get there, you will dazzle them with a small serving of your new plans. This is a good kind of restless, since it makes you search farther and do a lot of research to figure out the new direction of your life. The confirmation will arrive when somebody you barely know steps up and asks more questions about your imminent plans. Within minutes you will know that this person shares your vision, as well as your antsey need to make great things happen. Yes, the resources will be there and that has to do with your drive to make it all come together. The present transit of Uranus guarantees that you will make sweeping changes in your life, as well as, your career. How nice that you can gently ride along with the winds of change in your sails !
You have always been a mighty patient person, especially when it comes to allowing others adequate time to get a clue. However you also know that even with a ticket to the clue bus, some rare individuals will choose to stay clueless. This week finds you knee deep in doofuses, well meaning doofuses, nice personable doofuses even, but doofuses all the same. Once you have given others a chance to get on the same page as you, there will be a comfortable distance between your need to enlighten them and the fact that it’s not likely to happen. It’s thoughtful not to bring heavy-duty expectations to people who prefer to stay lost in the fog. Your wise choice will be to give them busy work that is helpful, but not all that crucial. Sure, they can feel as though they are part of the process, but we both know that their contributions will be negligible. Since you began this week with a Lunar Low, you know that you don’t have a lot to give and you aren’t about to get used up on non-issues. That’s the heart of it all, once you have done a quick sorting job, and you have identified the issues from the non-issues, your days will be a breeze. Okay an 18 hour work day may not seem a like breeze to others, but you are always willing to work longer and harder than some individuals to get things completed. And it’s ever so much more easy for you since you have found a kinder gentler way of ridding yourself of stupid stuff.
You are in a lovely cycle of counting your blessings. Your career is moving along at a good pace, your social circle is more supportive of your dreams than ever before, and you have learned not to spread your best intentions too far and wide. The bestest blessing of all is your sacred space. Once you have created it and allowed yourself to cocoon in the feeling of it, you will find that it follows you wherever you go. So you will discover that gridlock, which may have irked you in the past, becomes a chance to listen to your favourite music. Even hurry up and wait situations have become less stressful since with your imagination and a small notebook will make the time fly. Time is such a funny thing. While it should be pretty much a consistent thing, it really isn’t. While you are sitting in the Dentist’s waiting room listening to him sharpen his tools, time hangs suspended. On the other hand, when you are having a fun time with great company, it seems to speed up. And now not only do you have great good company, you are good company for yourself as well. Okay there may be a few odd experiences as well, like when you met your drunken Uncle on a Speed Date night, but it was the best conversation that you had all evening, so it was amusing. It’s your attitude of gratitude that will serve you well. Your open mind and heart will call more good Karma in and the blessings will grow exponentially!
Pisces: Now that your Ruler, Neptune has moved into your Sun Sign, it’s likely that you will need to seriously beam up more often than you ever did before. It’s for the best that you plan your “out of body” journey time, but make peace with the fact that it may sneak up on you as well. Most likely it will happen in times of boredom, sure you may be trying to pay attention to that endless Power Point Presentation at work, but, the speaker has a flat dull voice, and the next thing you know, your surroundings are blurry and the speaker is just so much white noise. Even as you attempt to force yourself back and make copious notes, you will hear a phrase that inspires, you and the next thing you know, you will find yourself writing funny limericks in your notebook. Your Muses are buzzing in to remind you that first and foremost you are an artist. That’s why you can so easily go from ruminating to creating. Something as simple as frosting cupcakes or rearranging your environment can soothe your hunger for aesthetics. This will be one of the most exciting cycles that you have even experienced. Neptune will bring everyone in touch with their need for spirituality and self awareness, and you are leading the way. It’s really wonderful that society is truly ready for this transformation. Just think a few years ago, few people weren’t ready to discuss spirit communication and metaphysics and now there are so many programs dedicated to it that you can access the information every day. Neptune has always drawn you into the fog, and now you are certain to have great minds with whom to share your insights. Beam up gentle Spirit, we’ll be waiting when you get back. We are worlds within worlds, and you will journey many of them and still make it back in time to feed the cat ! Bonne Voyage
