April 2012 Horoscope

Firey Aries Symbol

April is when the Sun transits through the Fire element of Aries and the Earth element of Taurus.  February and March were months that were hard to move forward and get things done.  We are finally going to see an opening in April.  Mercury, the planet of communication, thought, transportation and travel will turn direct April 4th and then Mars, the planet of energy and passion will turn direct April 14th.  It will be a time of getting things done and knowing that life if finally moving forward!

Check out the following important dates to put on your calendar:

April 4th -  Mercury, the planet of communication, thought, transportation & travel moves direct in Pisces, the sign of intuition, creativity, and compassion.

April 4th    – Venus, the planet of love, money & beauty enters Gemini the sign of flexibility, curiosity, the chatter, and the flirt.

April 6th - Full Moon in Libra (beauty, diplomacy & relationships).  A Full Moon represents energy for releasing, letting go, endings and completions.  A Full Moon can also mean a culmination of hard work which ends in celebration and maybe even moving into a totally unexpected direction.   Signs most affected by this Full Moon will be Libra, Aries, Cancer and Capricorn.

April 14th -  Mars, the planet of  passion, energy, anger & action moves direct in Virgo the sign of  modesty, health minded, meticulous & practical

April 17th -  Mercury, the planet of communication, thought, transportation & travel moves into Aries, the sign of independence, passion, aggression, and leadership energy.

April 21st – New Moon in Taurus (practical, sensuous, determined)  – A New Moon represents new beginnings, planting seeds, and setting intentions for the coming month. This is also a time when you may need to let something go to make room for the new and improved coming into your life.  For Taurus, this is your one new moon of the year so you may want to set time aside to make a plan for the coming year. What do you want to see in 2012? Write it down and then take action during the coming months to make it happen. Signs most affected by this new moon will be Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius and Leo.

Provided below are the horoscopes for each sign, if you know your Rising/Ascendant sign, read that sign, as well as your Sun sign.  To be clear, the Sun Sign forecast below is a generality.  If you want specific information based on your birth chart, I am available for readings to help you have the best possible year ahead.

Aries March 21 – April 19:

Happy Birthday Aries!  When your ruling planet, Mars, moves forward in mid-April you will slowly but surely start to get your energy back on track.  The area where you can make the most progress is in your work environment.  Also, if you’re looking at changing your diet and health routine for the better, look at starting a new program during the New Moon, April 21st.

Taurus April 20 – May 20:

With Mars, the planet of energy, passion, anger and assertion going direct April 14th in your party house and Jupiter, the planet of good luck, optimism, and growth still in Taurus it’s time for you to get out there and make life happen!  April is your time to get the fires going again and move your agendas forward expecting good results.

Gemini May 21 – June 21:

After a long couple of months of taking two steps forward and five steps back, April should reveal that all your efforts weren’t in vain.  Jupiter, the planet of good luck, expansion and growth is on its way to your sign in June, so, do the leg work now to start seeing the benefits in June and beyond.

Cancer June 22 – July 22:

This month you are at the starting gate to take action in your life.  Things have not been going as planned but that is about to change after Mars goes direct on April 14th.  Those with birthdays June 29th – July 3rd will be dealing with Pluto, the planet of transformation and change.  This isn’t an easy transit so try to be gentle with yourself during this time.

Leo July 23 – August 22:

Many Leos will feel the surge of energy coming back to them by mid-month.  This will especially be felt in the area of your career.  Get out there and close that deal you’ve working on, court those clients you thought were impossible to get.  Life is about to get real interesting…

Virgo August 23 – September 22:

This month pamper yourself.  Mars, the planet of energy, passion, and assertion is still retrograde in your sign and so you are probably feeling that it is taking a little more effort just to get through the day.  I know being the do do do Virgo it’s not in your normal make-up to take care of yourself because you are always so busy taking care of others.  But this month and into April slow it down and pay attention to what your body is trying to tell you.  You may just like this new habit and not go back to your old ways next month.

Libra September 23 – October 23:

Libras with birthdays on October 17th – 22nd are still feeling Saturn, the planet of burdens, responsibility, limitations, and lessons in their lives.  Just remember this too shall pass and when it does it won’t be back for another 28 years!  The good news this month is that you have a New Moon in your house of relationships, which can help give you a boost with your partner and if you don’t have a partner this energy can help you attract one.

Scorpio October 24 – November 21:

Scorpio you have a lot of amazing energy in your 5th house of creativity, self-expression, children, and romance.  Neptune the ultimate planet of creativity has arrived and is ready to awaken you to another side of your soul.  This month take your time and get acquainted with this new energy.  Nothing needs to move fast this month.  Inspiration may come to you when you least expect so keep a notepad close by.  Enjoy dear Scorpio!

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21:

Work should be busy but it may seem harder to get things done.  With Mars, the planet of energy and passion retrograde and Mercury, the planet of communication and transportation going retrograde this month things are bound to slow down and get confusing.  Don’t take anything personal this month.  Move slowly and take every change, missed appointment, flat tire or misunderstanding as an opportunity to stop and smell the roses.

Capricorn December 22 – January 19:

This is a perfect month all you Capricorns to take a couple of weekend get-a-ways.  The energy in the Universe is directing you to slow down and take time out to reflect and enjoy the fruits of your labor.  Mercury, the planet of communication and transportation will be going retrograde March 12th thru April 13th so make sure your plans are flexible.  Your planetary ruler, Saturn, is retrograde as well so make sure that your responsibilities are covered before you leave town so you can have a carefree time.  You deserve it!

Aquarius January 20 – February 18:

Your money houses are lit up this month.  Neptune will try to deceive you into thinking that you have enough money when in actuality you may have some extra bills to pay that you forgot about.  This year may be the year that you want to start your tax preparation early to make sure you have all your ducks in row and nothing is hiding to come out to bite you when it’s time to pay the tax man next month.  Also, get your rest this month and don’t over exert yourself.  Patience and self care should be your mantra for March.

Pisces February 19 – March 20:

The Full Moon on April 6th is going to light up your money houses right before tax season.  You are also dealing with Saturn, the planet of responsibility and lessons, in your joint money house as well.  Mercury will be direct so make sure you double check your finances and important documents you may be submitting to banks, government institutions, and or insurance companies.  After April 13th Mars, the planet of passion and energy, will go direct and help with a boost to your energy level.  Lots of mixed energy in April so pace yourself and don’t take anything for granted.

March 2012 Horoscope

March is when the Sun transits through the Water element of Pisces and the Fire element of Aries.  This month will be a time to stop and smell the roses.  We will have three planets retrograde this month, Mars, the planet of energy and passion, Saturn, the planet of responsibility and lessons, and Mercury, the planet of communication and transportation.  With all this energy retrograde there are bound to be accidents, miscommunications, technical difficulties, and lessons to learn.  But the good thing is that this is also a time to reflect and take the time needed to set things right that are not.  Don’t rush, be patient, take your time.  The Universe isn’t going to let you go faster than it wants you to go anyway, so why try and beat the system.

Check out the following important dates to put on your calendar:

March 3rd -  Mercury, the planet of communication, thought, transportation & travel enters Aries, the sign of independence, passion, aggression, and leadership energy.

March 6thVenus, the planet of love, money & beauty enters Taurus the sign of practical, sensuous, and determined energy.

March 7th - Full Moon in Virgo (modest, health minded, meticulous & practical).  A Full Moon represents energy for releasing, letting go, endings and completions.  A Full Moon can also mean a culmination of hard work which ends in celebration and maybe even moving into a totally unexpected direction.   Signs most affected by this Full Moon will be Virgo, Pisces, Gemini, and Sagittarius.

March 12thApril 3rd - Mercury, the planet of communication, transportation, thought and travel will retrograde in Aries and Pisces this month.  Mercury retrogrades approximately 3 times a year.  Mercury is the planetary ruler for Gemini and Virgo.  During Mercury retrograde you will want to back up your computer, service your car and other electronics/machinery.  This is a time to be patient when appointments don’t go as planned, travel is not on schedule or clear communication is not easily attainable.  Another consideration of Mercury in retrograde is to not sign contracts or set up big business deals because they may not be in your best interest (remember there are always exceptions to this rule).  This is a time to reflect on what’s going on in your life and either fine tune it, heal it, remove it, or adjust it.  Mercury is giving you a great opportunity to put yourself in a better position than you once were!  Signs most affected by this Mercury Retrograde will be Aries, Pisces, Virgo, and Libra.

March 22nd – New Moon in Aries (independent, passionate, aggressive, leader)   - A New Moon represents new beginnings, planting seeds, and setting intentions for the coming month. This is also a time when you may need to let something go to make room for the new and improved coming into your life.  For Aries, this is your one new moon of the year so you may want to set time aside to make a plan for the coming year. What do you want to see in 2012? Write it down and then take action during the coming months to make it happen. Signs most affected by this new moon will be Aries, Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn.

Pisces February 19 – March 20:

Happy Birthday Pisces!  Last month your ruling planet Neptune moved into Pisces.  Pisces with birthdays between Feb18th and 23rd will feel the Neptunian murky waters the most.  This is a great time to connect to your creativity, music, and your intuition but it may be a little more challenging these days to focus and concentrate with Neptune in Pisces.  Also, Mars and Saturn are retrograde and Mercury will be retrograde March 12th which means patience is key.  Use this month to take things slowly and address issues that you’ve been procrastinating about.  This is a perfect opportunity to reflect on the direction of life you’re heading in and ask yourself is it really aligned with the vision you have for yourself…  The New Moon (new beginnings & planting seeds of intention) on March 22nd is in your money house.  Take time on that day to focus on bringing more abundance and prosperity into your life.

Aries March 21 – April 19:

Those Aries with birthdays April 17th -20th are feeling the restriction of Saturn and low energy with you planetary ruler, Mars, still in retrograde.  Pace yourself this month. Take care of necessary business and pamper your body and soul during this time.  Your one New Moon for the year will be on March 22nd.   Set aside some time that day to set your intentions for the coming year.  Make 2012 an amazing year Aries!

Taurus April 20 – May 20:

March is not a time to dive in and take action but there are some great aspects for you Taurus.  Jupiter, the planet of good luck, expansion, & attracting opportunity is still in Taurus until June 11th and it will be making some great aspects to your Sun and Pluto this month.  Take this opportunity to plot and plan your next big move but don’t take action until April.

Gemini May 21 – June 21:

With Mars, the planet of energy, passion, anger, and assertion in retrograde in your fourth house of home and family this would be a good time to put your attention on that area of your life.  Sometimes we go so fast in life we allow things to fall by the way side.  The Universe is giving you an opportunity to stop and give energy (Mars) to what’s not working in your home and family life.  Give it the attention it needs and things should work out for the better by the time Mars goes direct in April.

Cancer June 22 – July 22:

Jupiter, the planet of good luck, expansion, growth, and attracting opportunities is beaming in your 11th house of hopes and wishes.  March is the month for you to really get clear on what your goals and priorities are so you can create a reasonable plan and start taking action in April.  This month with Mercury going into retrograde you will want to reflect and adjust your agenda so you have no obstacles in your way when it’s time to take action in mid to late April.

Leo July 23 – August 22:

Life may get a little frustrating at work this month.  Communications are where you will have to have the most patience.  Before you react this month count to 10 and then respond.  The good news is that you have Jupiter, the planet of good luck, expansion, growth, and attracting opportunities at the top of your chart, so you have the Universe on your side when problems arise.  Just don’t test the Universe by reacting to quickly this month.  Breathe, patience, and compassion should be your mantra.

Virgo August 23 – September 22:

This month pamper yourself.  Mars, the planet of energy, passion, and assertion is still retrograde in your sign and so you are probably feeling that it is taking a little more effort just to get through the day.  I know being the do do do Virgo it’s not in your normal make-up to take care of yourself because you are always so busy taking care of others.  But this month and into April slow it down and pay attention to what your body is trying to tell you.  You may just like this new habit and not go back to your old ways next month.

Great to see you back here Patty…especially on your birthday :-) I hope you had an amazing day and look forward to seeing you soon.

Thanks, Lisa! Great to be back

Jan/Feb 2012 Horoscope

January is when the Sun transits through the Earth element of Capricorn and the Air element of Aquarius.  January has started off with all cylinders blazing!  All the planets are moving forward.  This hasn’t happened since last January!  Great possibilities are at your finger tips as 2012 begins!  The best analogy I could give for the start of this month would be that you are driving down an open road and there are no red lights or stop signs for miles and miles but of course there are tight curves and other cars on the road to be aware of.  So, yes the road blocks are removed until January 23rd and it’s a great time to take action and make progress but you still have to pay attention to who’s on the road with you and where the twists and turns will lead you…  Mars the planet of passion, energy, and anger will be the first to turn retrograde and slow down the party but that will give you time to catch your breath and regroup.  See what comes up during this time, the week of January 23rd, there may be important clues as to what needs to be sorted out in regards to passions, repressed anger, or you may even feel your energy level drop.  Don’t be alarmed.  Just know it’s a time to reassess where you are putting your energy and maybe a time to re-evaluate where you want to invest your energy more conciously…

2012 will be a very interesting year!  We will experience four Eclipses (2 Solar Eclipses & 2 Lunar Eclipses) of karmic happenings in the signs of Gemini, Sagittarius, Taurus and Scorpio.  And then of course we all want to know where Jupiter the planet of good luck, expansion, abundance, and beliefs will be…  The beneficiaries of Jupiter for 2012 will be Taurus for half the year and then Gemini for the other half.   Uranus, the planet of innovation, rebellion, surprise, separation & freedom is still in Aries creating all kinds of shifts for people with birthdays March 19th – 31st and Sept 21st – Oct 3rd.  For Aries and Libras the best you can do is breathe and not get too overwhelmed.  Very powerful shifts are taking place.  What in your life are you ready to break free from…  Are you living your life from a place of truth and authenticity…  If yes, this year can be one of expansion and adventure and if not this year can be a test in your commitment to a life that is not working…  Uranus is the great awakener and in Aries the fire is bright and brings light to where it is dark.  Get ready world, we are in for another exciting ride!

Check out the following important dates to put on your calendar:

January 23rd – New Moon in Aquarius (rebel, intellectual, inventive)  – A New Moon represents new beginnings, planting seeds, and setting intentions for the coming month. This is also a time when you may need to let something go to make room for the new and improved coming into your life.  For Aquarius, this is your one new moon of the year so you may want to set time aside to make a plan for the coming year. What do you want to see in 2012? Write it down and then take action during the coming months to make it happen. Signs most affected by this new moon will be Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, Scorpio.

January 23rd – Mars (passion, drive, anger & action) retrogrades in Virgo (modest, health minded, meticulous & practical)

January 28th – Mercury (communication, thought, transportation & travel) moves into Aquarius (rebel, intellectual, inventive)

February 4th -    Neptune (illusion, delusion, intuition, creativity, music) moves into her natural sign of  Pisces.  Neptune has not been in Pisces for 164 years.

February 7th - Full Moon in Leo (courageous, playful, & opinionated).  A Full Moon represents energy for releasing, letting go, endings and completions.  A Full Moon can also mean a culmination of hard work which ends in celebration and maybe even moving into a totally unexpected direction.   Signs most affected by this Full Moon will be Leo, Aquarius, Taurus & Scorpio.

February 7th -  Saturn (discipline, lessons, tradition, & karma) retrogrades at the last degree of Libra (beauty, diplomacy & relationships) until June 24th.

February 9thVenus (love, money & beauty) enters Aries (passion, drive, anger)

Provided below are the horoscopes for each sign, if you know your Rising/Ascendant sign, read that sign, as well as your Sun sign.  To be clear, the Sun Sign forecast below is a generality.  If you want specific information based on your birth chart, I am available for readings to help you have the best possible year ahead.

Aquarius January 20 – February 18:

2012 is the year to get your finances and home life in order.  By November the Universe wants everything cleaned up so you can reap the rewards of all of your hard work.  Saturn, the planet of discipline, lessons, tradition, & karma, is the planet that is pushing you to get things together.  And you don’t want to mess with Saturn because there is ALWAYS a consequence!  So, take care of business so you can enjoy!

Pisces February 19 – March 20:

2012 will be a year of tying up loose ends that were activated in 2011.  Finances will be top on the list.  Relationships may need your full attention during the first quarter of 2012 as well.  Try to be patient and express to your partner where you are feeling unhappy.  This is a good time to seek out support in your relationships and don’t strike out in anger.  If you’re willing to do the work this can be the year you’ve been waiting for to finally move forward unencumbered.

Aries March 21 – April 19:

2012 is not a year to put don’t roots!  You need to flexible and loose in the coming months.  Uranus is in your sign and may be causing you to think fast and make decisions quickly.  This is mostly affecting Aries with birthdays March 19th – 31st.  If you are open you will be able to experience things you thought only happened in dreams.  If you are closed or in fear this can be a very challenging time because the Universe is wanting you to get out of your comfort zone and expand and grown your soul.

Taurus April 20 – May 20:

2012 still have Jupiter gifts to share with you until June 11th!  What opportunities await you are limitless!  You just need to get out there and know the Universe is on your side to open those doors that may have been previously closed.  Try and get things in order by October because Saturn is going to move into Scorpio and throw a little wrench in your party.

Gemini May 21 – June 21:

2012 will bring on more eclipses in your sign but that can be a really good thing.  Eclipses can bring in amazing things in one’s life but you also have to let go of what is no longer serving you and that is where most people miss the boat…  Know that when you release old energy, people, situations, you allow bigger and better things to fill that space.  Clean house now because good luck Jupiter will be in your sign starting in June and you want to make sure you have room for the blessing that Jupiter will share.

Cancer June 22 – July 22:

2011 was a tough year for the cardinal signs (Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, Libra).  There was so much planetary activity creating lots of tension.  2012 will still have its challenges for you Cancers but you will get more planetary support.  This month concentrate on your relationships and everything from there should start to fall into place.

Leo July 23 – August 22:

2012 will have you dealing with financial responsibilities.  You need to be flexible and keep a plan A, B, & C readily available as a go to.  There may be some stops and starts at the beginning of 2012 but don’t be discouraged.  Keep your eye and on the prize and remember being focused and determined wins the race.

Virgo August 23 – September 22:

2012 hosts Mars to your sign until July 3rd.  Mars has a tendency to be impulsive and quick to act but with it going retrograde starting Jan 23rd – Apr 13th you may want to double check your impulsive behavior before you jump.  Also, when Mars is retrograde in your sign you may not have the energy to do all you want to do.  Make sure you get your rest during this time and take it easy.

Libra September 23 – October 23:

Libras, Saturn will FINALLY leave your sign Oct 5th this year!  Now I know you still have some months to go but you are at the home stretch.  It has been a tough transit.  When you look back the last couple of years you probably don’t even recognize your life…  Some things definitely needed to be released but other situations were for you to grow, expand and KNOW who you really are in those experiences!  Did you learn Saturn’s lessons?  I hope you did!

Scorpio October 24 – November 21:

Scorpios 2012 still has some financial lessons to teach you.  Did you learn what needed to be changed in 2011.  If you did 2012 should be much easier.  It will be about refinement and even building financial wealth.  Take your time and don’t get a head of yourself.  Remember, as the old adage goes, if it sounds too good to be true it probably is!  Listen to your intuitive Scorpio self  before you jump into any financial situation this year.  Good luck!

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21:

2012 is a year to take life step by step.  This isn’t a time to jump steps and move too fast.  When you see you’re hitting a brick wall, stop, reassess and take the delay in stride.  There is a reason for the delay and it can be to your benefit.  The eclipse energy is still working for you so know that opening can happen when you least expect.  No pushing this year.  If a plan is not working push yourself away from the table and allow the time for inspiration to come in and take form.  This can be an amazing year Sag!

Capricorn December 22 – January 19:

In 2012 Pluto is still in Capricorn pushing you to deconstruct what is not working in your life.  Whether it’s career, relationships, friendships, or financial issues, this is an important time to take look at key areas of your life with a fresh eye.  Capricorns with birthdays of Dec 28th – Jan 5th will feel this energy the most.  Don’t resist what is inevitable!  Make the hard decisions so they’re not made for you.  Empower your life by taking charge and knowing that you have everything you need to be successful no matter what is taken away from you!

Taurus April 20 – May 20:

March is not a time to dive in and take action but there are some great aspects for you Taurus.  Jupiter, the planet of good luck, expansion, & attracting opportunity is still in Taurus until June 11th and it will be making some great aspects to your Sun and Pluto this month.  Take this opportunity to plot and plan your next big move but don’t take action until April.

Gemini May 21 – June 21:

With Mars, the planet of energy, passion, anger, and assertion in retrograde in your fourth house of home and family this would be a good time to put your attention on that area of your life.  Sometimes we go so fast in life we allow things to fall by the way side.  The Universe is giving you an opportunity to stop and give energy (Mars) to what’s not working in your home and family life.  Give it the attention it needs and things should work out for the better by the time Mars goes direct in April.

Cancer June 22 – July 22:

Jupiter, the planet of good luck, expansion, growth, and attracting opportunities is beaming in your 11th house of hopes and wishes.  March is the month for you to really get clear on what your goals and priorities are so you can create a reasonable plan and start taking action in April.  This month with Mercury going into retrograde you will want to reflect and adjust your agenda so you have no obstacles in your way when it’s time to take action in mid to late April.

Leo July 23 – August 22:

Life may get a little frustrating at work this month.  Communications are where you will have to have the most patience.  Before you react this month count to 10 and then respond.  The good news is that you have Jupiter, the planet of good luck, expansion, growth, and attracting opportunities at the top of your chart, so you have the Universe on your side when problems arise.  Just don’t test the Universe by reacting to quickly this month.  Breathe, patience, and compassion should be your mantra.

Virgo August 23 – September 22:

This month pamper yourself.  Mars, the planet of energy, passion, and assertion is still retrograde in your sign and so you are probably feeling that it is taking a little more effort just to get through the day.  I know being the do do do Virgo it’s not in your normal make-up to take care of yourself because you are always so busy taking care of others.  But this month and into April slow it down and pay attention to what your body is trying to tell you.  You may just like this new habit and not go back to your old ways next month.

Libra September 23 – October 23:

Libras with birthdays on October 17th – 22nd are still feeling Saturn, the planet of burdens, responsibility, limitations, and lessons in their lives.  Just remember this too shall pass and when it does it won’t be back for another 28 years!  The good news this month is that you have a New Moon in your house of relationships, which can help give you a boost with your partner and if you don’t have a partner this energy can help you attract one.

Scorpio October 24 – November 21:

Scorpio you have a lot of amazing energy in your 5th house of creativity, self-expression, children, and romance.  Neptune the ultimate planet of creativity has arrived and is ready to awaken you to another side of your soul.  This month take your time and get acquainted with this new energy.  Nothing needs to move fast this month.  Inspiration may come to you when you least expect so keep a notepad close by.  Enjoy dear Scorpio!

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21:

Work should be busy but it may seem harder to get things done.  With Mars, the planet of energy and passion retrograde and Mercury, the planet of communication and transportation going retrograde this month things are bound to slow down and get confusing.  Don’t take anything personal this month.  Move slowly and take every change, missed appointment, flat tire or misunderstanding as an opportunity to stop and smell the roses.

Capricorn December 22 – January 19:

This is a perfect month all you Capricorns to take a couple of weekend get-a-ways.  The energy in the Universe is directing you to slow down and take time out to reflect and enjoy the fruits of your labor.  Mercury, the planet of communication and transportation will be going retrograde March 12th thru April 13th so make sure your plans are flexible.  Your planetary ruler, Saturn, is retrograde as well so make sure that your responsibilities are covered before you leave town so you can have a carefree time.  You deserve it!

Aquarius January 20 – February 18:

Your money houses are lit up this month.  Neptune will try to deceive you into thinking that you have enough money when in actuality you may have some extra bills to pay that you forgot about.  This year may be the year that you want to start your tax preparation early to make sure you have all your ducks in row and nothing is hiding to come out to bite you when it’s time to pay the tax man next month.  Also, get your rest this month and don’t over exert yourself.  Patience and self care should be your mantra for March.

July 2011 Horosocpe

July is when the Sun transits through the Water element of Cancer and the Fire element of Leo.  Again, we start the month with a Solar Eclipse, this one being in the sign of Cancer.  This Solar Eclipse is part of a new Saros series (Eclipses in the same family).  We are covering completely new ground with this energy.  In other words, we have a powerful opportunity to initiate a new beginning and truly expect a different outcome and maybe one you least expect.  To find out more about what a Saros series is, you can visit one of my favorite astrologers, Bernadette Brady’s website, Click Here

Another very powerful energy that is building in the sky is what we call a cardinal cross.  This aspect creates six hard angles (stressful situations) and the stars of this show include the three powerful outer planets, Saturn (limitation, responsibility, structure, lessons), Uranus (innovation, rebellion, surprise, separation & freedom), and Pluto (transformation, death & rebirth, healing), with the Solar Eclipse completing the cardinal cross.  With such strong happenings in the cosmos, we too mirror the energy here on earth.  Some will embrace the challenges and do what is necessary to walk through the fire.  Some will become paralyzed with fear and will fight with everyone to create a distraction.  And then there are others who will go deeper within to escape this opportunity for change and growth and continue to wonder why life treats them so badly…  Who will you decide to be…

I’m wishing everyone continued love, prosperity, and peace!

Check out the following important dates to put on your calendar:

July 1st - New Moon Eclipse in Cancer (protective, empathetic, intuitive, creative)- A New Moon Eclipse represents a head start with fertilized seeds being planted (which can mean a quicker outcome/manifestation), new beginnings and setting intentions for the coming months. This is also a time when you may need to let something go to make room for the new and improved coming into your life.  For Cancer, this is your one new moon of the year so you may want to set time aside to make a plan for the coming year. What do you want to see in 2011? Write it down and then take action during the coming months to make it happen. Signs most affected by this new moon will be Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, Libra.

July 2nd – Mercury (communication, thought, transportation& travel) moves into Leo (leader, playful, generous & expressive)

July 3rd -  Venus (love, money & beauty) enters Cancer (protective, empathetic, intuitive, creative)

July 15th - Full Moon in Capricorn (responsible, disciplined, ambitious).  A Full Moon represents releasing, letting go, ending and completions.  A Full Moon can also mean a culmination of hard work which ends in celebration and maybe even moving into a totally unexpected direction.  Signs most affected by this Full Moon Eclipse will be Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, Libra.

July 22nd -  The Sun moves into Leo (leader, playful, generous & expressive)

July 28th – Mercury (communication, thought, transportation& travel) moves into Virgo (modest, meticulous & practical)

July 28th -  Venus (love, money & beauty) enters Leo (leader, playful, generous & expressive)

Provided below are the horoscopes for each sign, if you know your Rising/Ascendant sign, read that sign, as well as your Sun sign.  To be clear, the Sun Sign forecast below is a generality.  If you want specific information based on your birth chart, I am available for readings to help you have the best possible year ahead.

Cancer June 22 – July 22:

Happy Birthday Cancer!  On the first day of July there is a New Moon Eclipse in Cancer!  It’s a very auspicious time for you dear Cancer!  The road may seem a little bumpy but ripe with opportunity for you to breathe and allow for a rebirth!  What is blocking you?  What family issues are you ignoring?  What career decisions are you avoiding?  Now is the time to set a new course of self awareness and empowerment!  The Universe wants the best for you.  Know it and work from that premise.  You have all you need to take action.  It may be challenging but you Cancers are tough and are winners at the end of the day.

Leo July 23 – August 22:

This month you will want to take a breather.  This is a time for you Leos to take stock of what has happened in the last year and really contemplate what your next move is before your birthday coming up.  The sky is rife with challenging aspects which are playing out in areas for you that concern work, your beliefs, and hidden fears.  Now is the time to patiently reflect on where you are and where you going during this month.  Knowing the opportunity for truth and clarity are right at your finger tips.

Virgo August 23 – September 22:

The New Moon Eclipse (karmic new beginnings) on July 1st will activate your house of hopes, dreams, wishes and friendships.  The caveat to this is that other planets in the sky are creating challenging aspects that will make it more difficult for you to access the New Moon Eclipse gifts.  The best way to benefit from this aspect is to stay positive and focused on your goal and don’t get sucked into other peoples drama.  Virgo loves to be of service and that is wonderful but remember you can’t be of service to anyone if you don’t take care of yourself first.

Libra September 23 – October 23:

This month will be one of your more challenging months this year.  July starts off with the outer planets touching all the sensitive angles of your chart.  Are you are starting a relationship or ending one, are you are creating a career or ending one, are you are having family struggles or are you dealing with health concerns, now is the time to be aware of what choices you are making and why, so you don’t do the same things you have done in the past.  Really take a look at what path you are moving toward.  Is it because it is the path of least resistance or is it the path of your true desire…  The decisions you make this month will set the tone for what’s to come.

Scorpio October 24 – November 21:

The New Moon Eclipse (karmic new beginnings) is highlighting the area of your chart that deals with your belief system.  This month may require you to investigate those beliefs and begs the question do they still apply to your life now…  The energy in the sky this month is very tense and almost paralyzing so no need to act now on any of your findings but readjusting and aligning with your core beliefs may be the key to finding some relief and key answers to some of the issues you are facing.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21:

Investments, finances and money may be on your mind this month.  Whether it’s a business partner or your love partner, finances need to be discussed and adjustments made.  With tense planetary activity in the sky, you will want to take a break as well this month and if finances allow, get away whether near or far.  An adventure will be right up your alley to satisfy your playful spirit and allow you to get back to work and stay focused without resentment.

Capricorn December 22 – January 19:

This month you may just want to get off the merry-go-round, go sit down, and take a breather but now is not the time.  The powerful aspects in the sky are pushing you to your limits but don’t give up!  Really pay attention to what buttons are being pushed within you because that will allow you to see and access where your power truly is.  Fear is what keeps you stuck.  Pinpoint the fear and then walk through the fear fire.  This will allow you to take your power back and get on with your amazing life.  It won’t be easy but it will be well worth the trouble!

Aquarius January 20 – February 18:

The tense planetary energy in the sky this month will challenge your day to day work situation and stamina.  You will want to pace yourself, start a new daily regimen, or change your work environment.  This is also a time to be flexible and not fall into rigid or limiting beliefs. When the Sun moves into Leo mid-month things should lighten up a bit, so go out and have a little fun and enjoy the long summer nights with family and friends.

Pisces February 19 – March 20:

The good news is the New Moon Eclipse (karmic new beginnings) is happening in your house of love and creativity.  The bad news is it is being challenged by three powerful outer planets.  So, don’t get discouraged if things don’t move as fast as you would like.  Keep your intentions clear and know that you are on the right path with a few adjustments here and there to keep it exciting.

Aries March 21 – April 19:

July will be a month to put your money where your mouth is!  The challenging powerful planetary aspects are requiring you to explore and think things through.  Your Aries nature just wants to jump but that’s what has gotten you into the situation you’re in.  Challenge yourself and use caution and patience before you jump because the planetary aspects are not as forgiving as you would like.  Home and family is where much of the energy is taking place so take time this month to get your home life in order and everything else will fall in line.  Towards the end of the month more fun will be on the agenda.

Taurus April 20 – May 20:

Tough planetary energies have been building since last month and now it feels very restrictive.  With Jupiter (good luck, abundance, opportunities) in Taurus (practical, sensuous, determined), use that energy to see the opportunities that surrounds you.  Use those opportunities to catapult you to where you want to be. Whatever barriers and blocks you perceive can be removed with intention and a little TLC.  Be gentle with yourself, this too shall pass…

Gemini May 21 – June 21:

Challenging planetary alignments highlight your house of income.  This is a time when discipline is needed to maybe restructure your spending habits and become more aware of where your money is going.  If your finances are running smoothly this may be a time when an expense you weren’t expecting arrives.  In any case, your finances, talents, and values will have your attention this month.  Make the changes necessary so you don’t have this hanging over your head next month when your planetary ruler, Mercury, goes retrograde.

June 2011 Horoscope

June is when the Sun transits through the Air element of Gemini and the Water element of Cancer.  What a powerful month we are entering.  We will experience three Eclipses between June 1st and July 1st.  That’s a lot of planetary energy for us to metabolize.  We will also experience two outer planets changing direction.  Saturn (lesson, responsibility, discipline, karma) will move direct and Neptune (dreams, deceit, secrets, love) will move retrograde.  With so much movement going on in the heavens there’s going to be many things going on behind the scenes as well as right in front of our faces.  This summer is going to be very interesting on a personal level as well as globally for all of us…

My suggestion for the coming weeks is to listen and observe before you make any quick decisions.  Eclipses are very pivotal times when turning points and breaking points take place.  Make sure you are aware of the decisions that you are making during this time because they carry a lot of weight on your life’s journey.

I’m wishing everyone continued love, prosperity, and peace!

Check out the following important dates to put on your calendar:

June 1st - New Moon Eclipse in Gemini (flexible, flirty, curious, chatty) - A New Moon Eclipse represents a head start with fertilized seeds being planted (which can mean a quicker outcome/manifestation), new beginnings and setting intentions for the coming months.

Gemini May 21 – June 21:

Happy Birthday Gemini!  On the first day of June there is a New Moon Eclipse in Gemini!  What a wonderful way to start off the month.  And what does this mean for you Gemini…  It means fabulous changes are under foot and that there is a wonderful spotlight on your life!  What changes do you want to make, what do you want to expand that is already great in your life and what do you want to release and let go of…  It is all possible in the coming months.

Cancer June 22 – July 22:

We have a powerful month ripe with two Eclipses!  These Eclipses take place before the Sun goes into your sign of Cancer so this month you may feel very fatigued and overwhelmed.  But don’t fret, you will be receiving information to set yourself free of old energy that is no longer serving you.   So, instead of rehashing or over analyzing (which you’ve already done for years) this old energy let it go to begin a new and improved cycle of your life!

Leo July 23 – August 22:

The Eclipse season is here and it is activating your hopes, wishes, goals, and friendships!  What have you been putting off, what fears are holding you back from taking the first step into your destiny…  The Universe is giving you a front row seat to visualize your dreams and make them a reality!  Get to work Leo!

Virgo August 23 – September 22:

The Eclipses this month are activating your houses of career and home.  Are you up for a raise, a career or job change, are you looking at moving or are there family issues that need to be dealt with…  This month these issues will be in the forefront.  This is the month to put plans in action to allow for these changes to take place.  Don’t allow the details to keep you from making progress.

Libra September 23 – October 23:

Libras have been going through some challenging times but the Eclipses this month will be supporting you!  Now this doesn’t mean that everything is going to be coming up roses but you will have support.  A decision will have to be made this month that may be difficult but allowing yourself to let go will make room for the new and improved and that is what the Universe is pushing you towards.

Scorpio October 24 – November 21:

Between the Eclipses and Jupiter (good luck, abundance, opportunities) moving into Taurus and your 7th house, you are headed into an interesting month.  Business partnerships and love relationships will be in the forefront in a positive way.  Are you looking at signing a contract for a new business partnership…  You may have to release an old partner to embrace a new and better situation…  A new love interest may come into your life at this time…  Whatever the situation, relationships will be key this month.  Enjoy!

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21:

You are on stage this month and the Eclipses are lighting your way.  This month the Universe is giving you an opportunity for a quantum leap of change in your life.  Look at what issues are coming up for you and what you continue to resist.  Move into the resistance so you can release it and allow for a new and improved existence.  No one said it would be easy but it will be worth your trouble to know that you were able to overcome, learn and triumph over your personal battle.  Truth and peace will be your reward.

Capricorn December 22 – January 19:

You should be very busy during this Eclipse month.  With the Gemini New Moon Eclipse lighting up your house of daily work, it’s time to get busy.  This month is about getting down to the details and making sure your T’s are crossed and your I’s are dotted.  Also, someone may be leaving your place of business which means that you may be burdened with their work as well.  Make sure you are taking the time to get your rest this month because you will need it.

Aquarius January 20 – February 18:

With the help of the Eclipses, this month can be a great time to start redefining and streamlining your creativity and self expression.  Do you have a book that needs to be written…  Is there a business proposal you want to get developed and funded…  Do you have a screenplay sitting on your desk…  Now is the time to connect with friends and networking groups to make your platform known.  Get out there and express youself!

Pisces February 19 – March 20:

This month the Eclipses are highlighting family and home as well as career.  Changes are necessary but the road is not clear.  With your ruling planet Neptune in the picture be careful that you don’t idealize the situation or deceive yourself with issues placed before you.  You may want to you discuss things with a trusted friend to make sure you’re seeing the picture clearly.  This is a time of adjustments and change so don’t retreat out of fear but seek out assistance with your decisions for clarity and guidance.

Aries March 21 – April 19:

Eclipse season is here and lighting up your house of communication and education.  Keep an open mind this month.  You will be busy learning new and intriguing things that will take you down a new and interesting path.  What you thought was a way to go may not be the case.  Flexibility and thinking quick on your feet will be very helpful this month.  Agreements and contracts may have to be relooked at this month as well.  So, make sure you are being assisted by the best to get educated on the pros and cons of each situation.

Taurus April 20 – May 20:

What a powerful month for you dear Taurus!  Jupiter (good luck, abundance, opportunities) will be moving into your sign on June 4th for the next year and the Eclipses will shine a light on your finances.  The good news is that Jupiter will be sharing some great opportunities and blessings with you in the next year.  The bad news is that the Eclipses want you to clean up and organize your financial house.  Where do you need to cut spending…  Do you have a savings account…  Do you have your debt under control…  These are the issues that need to be addressed in the coming year BUT Jupiter will and can be helpful through the process J

Sorchae,

Keep the intention… And so it is :)

May 2011 Horoscope

May is when the Sun transits through the Earth element of Taurus and the Air element of Gemini.  We are still dealing with the abundance of Aries energy until mid month.  From May 1st – 7th Mars (aggression, action, passion) and Jupiter (truth, expansion, belief) are in a very strong aspect in the sign of Aries (leader, assertive, independent).  We see this reflected in the news that tensions are building and belief systems will continue to be challenged in the coming weeks ahead regarding Osama Bin Laden’s death and the Middle East unrest.  With all that has unfolded in the last couple of days in the world and the Eclipse (karmic happenings) season gearing up starting June 1st, I think we are in for a summer we will never forget…  Let’s pray that peace will prevail!

A dear friend of mine referenced a very powerful quote from Martin Luther King, Jr. that I think we should all contemplate, ‎”I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”

Check out the following important dates to put on your calendar:

May 3rd - New Moon in Taurus (practical, sensuous, determined) - A New Moon represents new beginnings, planting seeds, and setting intentions for the coming month. This is also a time when you may need to let something go to make room for the new and improved coming into your life.  For Taurus, this is your one new moon of the year so you may want to set time aside to make a plan for the coming year. What do you want to see in 2011? Write it down and then take action during the coming months to make it happen. Signs most affected by this new moon will be Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius.

May 11th -  Mars (aggression, action, passion) moves into Taurus (practical, sensuous, determined)

May 17th - Full Moon in Scorpio.  A Full Moon represents energy for releasing, letting go, endings and completions and at the last degree of a sign it really emphasizes that fact.  The Scorpio Full Moon is usually one of the most power packed Full Moons of the year.  A Full Moon can also mean a culmination of hard work which ends in celebration and maybe even moving into a totally unexpected direction.   Signs most affected by this Full Moon will be Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, Aquarius.

May 15th -  Venus (love, money & beauty) enters Taurus (practical, sensuous, determined)

May 15th – Mercury (communication, thought, transportation& travel) moves into Taurus (practical, sensuous, determined)

May 21st -  The Sun moves into Gemini

Provided below are the horoscopes for each sign, if you know your Rising/Ascendant sign, read that sign, as well as your Sun sign.  To be clear, the Sun Sign forecast below is a generality.  If you want specific information based on your birth chart, I am available for readings to help you have the best possible year ahead.

Taurus April 20 – May 20:

Happy Birthday Taurus!  Your planetary ruler, Venus (love, money, beauty) and Mars (passion, action, energy) will be dancing cheek this month.  This means you are glowing and radiating that special something.  This is the time to be out and about to network, make business or love connections.  With Jupiter moving into Taurus next month, you are on deck for some amazing opportunities and adventures ahead.  Your one New Moon of the year in Taurus is on May 3rd and is supported by powerful planetary energy.  Make sure you set time aside that day to create, compose, and construct your intentions for the coming year!

Gemini May 21 – June 21:

Mercury (communication, transportation, thought), your planetary ruler is now direct, so life may seem a little less complicated and chaotic.  Before the Sun moves into Gemini on May 21st, you will probably be in a more reflective mood.  This is a time to complete old business and wrap up old emotions that no longer serve you.  Your eclipses (karmic happenings) are coming next month and you don’t want to have too much unfinished business on the table.  So take this month to get your physical, spiritual, and emotional house in order.

Cancer June 22 – July 22:

You had a busy time last month.  The energy will slow down a bit in May and give you an opportunity to put out into the Universe what your greatest wishes are in the coming months.  May 3rd you will have a New Moon to help you put those intentions into action.  During the powerful Full Moon in Scorpio on May 17th there maybe some emotional distractions but stay your course.

Leo July 23 – August 22:

Work and family will have your attention this month.  And with the Sun in Taurus, not a complimentary sign for you, there may be conflicts that will need your attention.  At the beginning of the month there will still be planetary energy in Aries to help you get through some of the rough patches but later in the month is when you will have to use your leadership skills to iron out the wrinkles.  Stay grounded and you may receive some good surprises you weren’t expecting.

Virgo August 23 – September 22:

You planetary ruler, Mercury (communication, transportation, thought), is now direct so you can get on with your business at hand.  With so much activity in your house of travel, publishing, adventure, and international dealings this is a good time to lighten up your practical self and enjoy a little this month.  There will be a fork in the road during the Full Moon, May 17th but the energy won’t last long.  Get out and create an amazing adventure Virgo!

Libra September 23 – October 23:

Your money houses are being strongly activated this month.  It’s a time to really look at where you place your values and why you work so hard…  For what…  Are you taking time to enjoy your family and friends or are you deep in career, finance and getting ahead…  This month you may want to re-evaluate why you may be working so hard and where you can create more balance.

Scorpio October 24 – November 21:

This is a powerful month for relationships dear Scorpio!  Once a year we all experience a Full Moon in Scorpio (May 17th) and get to feel the intense energy it will bring.  Are you in a relationship…  Are you looking for a relationship…  This month you will come face to face with what is working and what is not whether you are in or out of a relationship.  Clean up whatever is not working and support, encourage and embrace what is working.  This opportunity only comes once a year so make the best of it!

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21:

This is the best month to start that diet and exercise routine you’ve been putting off.  There will be a New Moon in the area of your chart that deals with health and fitness.  New Moons are a time to plant seeds of intention for what you want to manifest in the coming months.  This month may also bring in more work.  You may even be asked to head a new project that is just getting off the ground.

Capricorn December 22 – January 19:

Your party house if lit up this month!  You’ve had so much to deal this past year and this summer is going to be energy packed so I would advise you to take this month to go out and have a little fun.  Plan a party, go out on a date, go on a weekend get-a-way…  Whatever you decide just do something fun and playful.  The responsibility will be there when you get back from your well deserved mental health break J

Aquarius January 20 – February 18:

With so much planetary activity moving into your house of home and family, you may be dealing with real estate and parental issues.  Are you looking at purchasing a home, moving to a rental property or even redecorating your existing place…  Are you looking at having to take care of a parent or heal a family fight…  These are issues that may present themselves this month.  If you can wait to make any real estate decisions, I would say wait til next month when Jupiter (good luck, abundance, opportunities) moves into Taurus.

Pisces February 19 – March 20:

This is a busy month for you dear Pisces.  The planetary energy wants you to get out to meet and greet.  Plan a weekend get-a-way and make sure you take your computer and cell phone because you will want to stay in touch to keep your hand on the pulse of everything going on out there.  Make sure you stay flexible and available for anything and everything this month!  Enjoy!

Aries March 21 – April 19:

Financial burdens may be a concern this month but don’t let that scare you.  The New Moon in Taurus on May 3rd will give you a perfect opportunity to initiate fiscal plans that you can implement and honor.  Things should lighten up a bit when the Sun moves into Gemini (versatile, chatty, quick) on May 21st to help you bring a little levity to any challenges you may be experiencing.

April 2011 Horoscope

April is when the Sun transits through the Fire element of Aires and the Earth element of Taurus.  This month is a mixed bag of planetary energy.  At the beginning of this month there are 6 out of our 10 luminaries in Aries!  That means that the energy is highly charged and ready to go but with Mercury being retrograde, going full speed is just not going to work.  This is a time to take that powerful Aries energy and focus it to take care of and clean up old conundrums, issues, and situations that have been on the “back burner.

We will experience a planetary aspect that only happens once a year.  This is when the Sun meets up with Jupiter on April 5th & 6th bringing optimism, good luck, and opportunity in it’s wake.  Do you have big meetings or parties planned for these days…  Maybe you should :)

Check out the following important dates to put on your calendar:

April 3rd - New Moon in Aries (assertive, leader, independent)  - A New Moon represents new beginnings, planting seeds, and setting intentions for the coming month. This is also a time when you may need to let something go to make room for the new and improved coming into your life.  For Aries, this is your one new moon of the year so you may want to set time aside to make a plan for the coming year. What do you want to see in 2011? Write it down and then take action during the coming months to make it happen. Signs most affected by this new moon will be Aries, Libra, Cancer, Capricorn.

April 4th-  Neptune moves into Pisces.  Neptune takes approximately 165 years to circle the zodiac, so we have about 15 years to experience this transit through Pisces.  Neptune is the ruler of Pisces so this is a very comfortable energy for Neptune to be in.  Neptune and Pisces have rulership over the following:  oceans, maritime matters, music, glamour, photography slavery, fraud, secrets, victimization, dreams, illusion, delusion, ideals, spirituality, unconditional love, gas & oil.  The last transit of Neptune in Pisces was 1847 – 1861 when our country was strongly dealing with the issues of slavery.  What will this new transit bring to our country…  Issues of victimization from our own country’s financial irresponsibility, discussions on new ways to limit usage of gas and oil, raising our awareness of spirituality, long standing government secrets being revealed, raising more awareness of the power of drug companies and the abuse of prescription drugs…  So many things to think about…  Since Neptune is a slow moving planet, we don’t always recognize the themes taking place right away but the themes will reveal themselves in time…

April 5th -  Sun aspecting Jupiter -  A very auspicious day for good happenings.  This aspect happens once every year so go out and make things happen.

April 17th - Full Moon in Libra.  A Full Moon represents energy for releasing, letting go, endings and completions and at the last degree of a sign it really emphasizes that fact.  A Full Moon can also mean a culmination of hard work which ends in celebration and maybe even moving into a totally unexpected direction.   Signs most affected by this Full Moon will be Libra, Aries, Cancer Capricorn.

April 22nd -  Venus (love, money & beauty) enters Aries (independent, leader, competitive)

April 23rd – Mercury (communication, thought, transportation& travel) moves direct in Aries (independent, leader, competitive) after being retrograde for the past 3 weeks.  Mercury will be clear of it’s retrograde showdown on May 12th.

Provided below are the horoscopes for each sign, if you know your Rising/Ascendant sign, read that sign, as well as your Sun sign.  To be clear, the Sun Sign forecast below is a generality.  If you want specific information based on your birth chart, I am available for readings to help you have the best possible year ahead.

Aries March 21 – April 19:

Happy Birthday Aries!  Six of the ten celestial bodies will be in Aries at the beginning of this month, so April starts off with a bang!  Your one New Moon of the year in Aries is on April 3rd and is supported by powerful planetary energy.  Make sure you set time aside that day to create, compose, and construct your intentions for the coming year!  You have until June to utilize the positive aspects of Jupiter (expansion, growth, opportunity, goodluck) in Aires!  Don’t waste it because Jupiter only comes to your sign once every twelve years!

Taurus April 20 – May 20:

Your planetary ruler, Venus (love, money, beauty), is in your 11th house (hopes, wishes, friendships, groups) encouraging the energy of last month to make dreams come true!  There’s also a lot of planetary energy in your house of dreams and secrets.   Pay close attention to your dreams this month, there may be valuable information given to unlock a mystery in your life!

Gemini May 21 – June 21:

Mercury (communication, transportation, thought), your planetary ruler is retrograde until April 23rd.  This can create delays and misunderstandings but it’s a great time to look at life situations that are not working and create new solutions and then implement them when Mercury moves direct.  Also, with so much activity in your 11th house (hopes, wishes, friendships, groups) you may be very busy with friends and group activities this month and you may even hear from a long lost friend from the past.  Enjoy!

Cancer June 22 – July 22:

Career, reputation, status, honors and awards are the theme for you this month Cancer.  With six planets in Aries (entrepreneurial, pioneering, naive) at the top of your chart, including retrograde Mercury (miscommunication) and Uranus (unexpected events, surprise, rebellion) you will experience mixed signals but don’t let that stop you from gathering all that is being thrown your way and sifting through it all to find the golden nuggets to shine and take along on your life’s journey!

Leo July 23 – August 22:

You will want to explore and create adventures this month!  Go for it!  Mercury is retrograde so make sure that you check and double check itineraries, transportation, and reservations.  Another area of attention during April could be publishing, teaching or becoming a student once again.  Do you have a book in your head that needs to be written…  Do you have a class in mind that you’ve always been interested in…  Now is the time to investigate to see how to make it all happen!

Virgo August 23 – September 22:

Your house of other people’s money is full of planetary action.  This tax season can possible go very very well or very very bad…  With Uranus (unexpected events, surprise, rebellion) in this area of the chart anything is possible.  Make sure your “I’s” are dotted and your “T’s” are crossed because Mercury retrograde (miscommunication) is in that area of the chart as well.  This applies to investments, insurance, child support, and inheritance.  Keep your eyes on the bottom line this month.

Libra September 23 – October 23:

Committed relationships and business partnerships may be high on the “give your attention” list.  Mixed signals will be given by both and you will feel conflicted.  Take every possible opportunity to not react.  Breathe…  Count to 10…  Go to the bathroom… but do not feel forced or intimidated to go along with a plan that does not resonate with you!  A compromise can always work, just take the time to work through the process.

Scorpio October 24 – November 21:

Scorpio you will be busier than ever this month!  With six of the 10 planets in your house of work, you will have to pace yourself.  Also with Mercury retrograde in that same house, a project from your past may come back with a better spin to it.  Investigate it and if it certainly cuts the mustard run with it but do not move forward with anything until Mercury goes direct April 23rd.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21:

Romance, creativity, fun and children will keep you passionately occupied this month!  Are you expecting a baby…  Are you in love…  Are you unveiling a creative project to the public…  This month is ripe with possibility!  Let the negativity and fear out the door so you can create, create, and create some more!!!

Capricorn December 22 – January 19:

With so much energy in your 4th house of home and family matters you are bound to have some responsibilities to deal with.  Whether it’s a parent or a real estate matter, you should breathe and not commit to anything until after Mercury retrograde is over.  Things are not always as they seem when so much planetary energy is all conjoined in one area of the chart.  Allow time to create movement and perspective so clarity and certainty can be your friend once again!

Aquarius January 20 – February 18:

You may have a lot of apologizing to do this month!  With so much planetary activity in your house of communication in the sign of Aries (impulsive, rash, abrasive), you may want to be aware that your “mouth brakes” may not be working properly and you could create “situations” that were not your intention.  This area of the chart also deals with local travel, so make sure you are paying attention to the road and other drivers.

Pisces February 19 – March 20:

There is no better time than now to get your financial house in order.  With so much planetary energy in the area of the chart that deals with how you earn your money, the possibility of making financial changes are big!  Are you looking for a raise…  Are you self-employed and waiting to land your next big deal…  Write, meditate, pray and visualize your ideas and intentions on the New Moon April 3rd to align your energy with the Universe for success and prosperity in the coming year!  Mercury is retrograde, so there may be a false start but after April 23rd put your plans in motion and see what grows…

Excited that the stars have some good things brewing for the weekend of Topanga Earth Day! Love, Money, Beauty, Communication, & Thought are definitely all pertinent things for this fun festival of art, music and eco-consciousness! Yay!

That’s right…Mercury goes direct right in the middle of Topanga Earth Day weekend! Should be an interesting fiery Aries energy kind of weekend :D

This Leo seems true to your forecasts….just started writing a new blog this month…will also be teaching as well as taking some art classes. Also, plan on taking some risks and going for it! Maybe you should just get out of my head!

Yeah!!! I’m so glad everyone is enjoying my forecast :)

April 5th & 6th were perfect days for optimism, good luck, and opportunity for me! Party with friends I haven’t seen in almost 2 years and a job interview on the 6th! I am looking forward to the rest of my busy, creative month!

March 2011 Horoscope

by Patty Kamson

March is when the Sun transits through the Water element of Pisces and the Fire element of Aries .  Another powerful month is ahead.  Uranus moves into Aries after a 7 year visit in Pisces.  The last time Uranus was in Aries was 1927 – 1935.  Mercury will go retrograde at the end of the month as well.  With Uranus moving into Aries and the Spring Equinox this month, as well as Neptune moving into Pisces next month we are in for changing times and our world if reflecting that to us everyday!

Check out the following important dates to put on your calendar:

March 1st   - Venus (love, money & beauty) enters Aquarius (rebel, intellectual, unique)

March 4th – New Moon in Pisces (creative, intuitive, compassionate)  - A New Moon represents new beginnings, planting seeds, and setting intentions for the coming month. This is also a time when you may need to let something go to make room for the new and improved coming into your life.  For Aquarius, this is your one new moon of the year so you may want to set time aside to make a plan for the coming year. What do you want to see in 2011? Write it down and then take action during the coming months to make it happen. Signs most affected by this new moon will be Pisces, Virgo, Gemini, Sagittarius.

March 10th – Mercury (communication, thought, transportation& travel)enters Aries (independent, leader, competitive)

March 11th, 2011 – March 6th, 2019 Uranus moves into Aries – Key words for Uranus are freedom, rebellion, unexpected events, the great awakener, unconventional, technology, innovation, astrology, electricity, brilliance & humanitarian endeavors, among other things.  Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and represents independence, aggression, assertiveness, passion, and entrepreneurial and trail blazing energy.  Put Uranus and Aries together and you come up with a powerful force to be reckoned with in the coming eight years.   Wherever it is transiting in your chart will be revolutionized.  For example, when Uranus is transiting your seventh house of relationships you can possibly go through an abrupt separation…   or your significant other may be relocated to another part of the country and you have to stay where you are which will make your relationship a bit unconventional.  If you’re single, you may be more attracted to unconventional, unique type people or you may not want to be tied down and in a traditional committed relationship.  In terms of world events it can reflect unrest, revolts, revolutions, natural disasters such as earthquakes, fires, and volcano eruptions. We will all experience Uranus’ transit through Aires at some level but this transit will mostly affect Aries, Libras, Cancers, and Capricorns.

March 19th - Full Moon at the end degree of Virgo.  A Full Moon represents energy for releasing, letting go, endings and completions and at the last degree of a sign it really emphasizes that fact.  A Full Moon can also mean a culmination of hard work which ends in celebration and maybe even moving into a totally unexpected direction.   Signs most affected by this Full Moon will be Virgo, Pisces, Gemini, Sagittarius.

March 20th-  Spring Equinox.  This is when the Sun moves into Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, and the seasons change from Winter to Spring.

March 30th – April 23rd – Mercury retrogrades approximately 3 times a year.  Mercury is the planetary ruler for Gemini and Virgo.  During Mercury retrograde you will want to back up your computer, service your car and other electronics.  Be patient when appointments don’t go as planned, travel is not on schedule or clear communication is a thing of the past.  Another consideration of Mercury in retrograde is to not sign contracts or set up big business deals because they may not be in your best interest (remember there are always exceptions to this rule).  This is a time of looking back and taking what you already have in life and either fine tuning it, healing it, removing it, or adjusting it.  Mercury is giving you a great opportunity!  Signs most affected the Mercury Retrogrades this year will be Aries, Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, and Sagittarius

Provided below are the horoscopes for each sign, if you know your Rising/Ascendant sign, read that sign, as well as your Sun sign.  To be clear, the Sun Sign forecast below is a generality.  If you want specific information based on your birth chart, I am available for readings to help you have the best possible year ahead.

Pisces February 19 – March 20:

Happy Birthday Pisces!  With Mars (passion, sexuality, energy, action) helping to give you a well deserved boost, you well on your way to a busy month.  There is a lot of energy in your money houses this month so make sure you don’t have your rose colored glasses on and ignore warning signs that adjustments need to be made in your financial picture.  Pay special attention to your finances when Mercury (communication, thought, contracts & travel) goes retrograde March 30th.  Your one New Moon of the year in Pisces is on March 4th.  Make sure you set time aside that day to create, compose, and construct your intentions for the coming year!

Aries March 21 – April 19:

Mid March life as you know it is going to change.  Uranus (innovation, rebellion, freedom, surprise, separation) will move in to Aries (independent, passionate, aggressive) March 11th.  For you Aries born March 20th – 23rd, this transit will hit you first.  Expect the unexpected and stay open to change so your life can bend, move and expand.  Remember to breathe and get ready for an amazing ride!

Taurus April 20 – May 20:

Your 11th house (hopes, wishes, friendships, groups) is lit up this month.  What are your wildest dreams?  The New Moon on March 4th is in position for you to plant those wildest dream seeds so you can see them come true.  Life may seem a little unpredictable these days but stay focused on your goals and you will make it through.

Gemini May 21 – June 21:

Your 10th house (career, reputation, status) is full of activity in the beginning of the month.  Inspiration will come when you least expect it so don’t ignore it.  March 11th is when Uranus (innovation, rebellion, freedom, surprise, separation) moves into Aries (independent, passionate, aggressive) for the next seven years and it will be your time to lay the ground work for your  biggest dreams and wishes. Uranus can make the impossible…  Possible!

Cancer June 22 – July 22:

Are you feeling the pull of work responsibilities and family obligations?  This month may be a time that you want to bring balance back to your work and home life.  Where have you gotten off your path and where do you need to make adjustments…  What are your priorities…  Your beliefs and life philosophy will come into question and only you have the answers.  Take your time and get the clarity you need to continue your journey based on your life’s vision.

Leo July 23 – August 22:

This is a month to take a look at your financial house.  Get your taxes prepared early, make sure your 401K is working for you, check your IRA, and make sure your insurance policies are current.  With so much energy in Pisces clear answers are not always so easy to get but be persistent until you know everything is where you expect and want it to be.

Virgo August 23 – September 22:

When the Sun is opposite your Sun, which it is during this time of year, you can feel more drained and tired than usual.  Relationship issues that have not been dealt with will come up…  Break ups can happen…  Business partnerships can be more tenuous during this time.  Work through the issues now so you don’t have to revisit them later, especially knowing that Mercury, your ruling planet, will be retrograde March 30th – April 23rd.

Libra September 23 – October 23:

Libra you make want to take a long hard look at your health and fitness routine this month.  With so much planetary activity in this area of your chart it is a perfect time to reset your negative habits and behaviors and turn them into positive ones.  Do you need to lose weight, gain weight, eat healthier, or just become more fit…  The New Moon on March 4th is a great time to make a commitment to self and make it happen!

Scorpio October 24 – November 21:

Your house of self-expression and creativity is highly activated this month.  What do you need to give birth to…  What do you need to express to yourself or others…  This is the time to get it off your chest so you can have more energy to keep up with all the work that will be coming your way!  Make sure you are getting the rest you need so you can keep up with the demand.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21:

Home and family will be at the top of your list this month.  What honey-doos need to be taken care of…  A Spring cleaning may just be what the doctor ordered to get your home back to a place of peace and tranquility.  Then invite the family over to feel the love, laughter and joy that you may have gotten too far away from.

Capricorn December 22 – January 19:

This will be a busy month of short trips, networking and an incredible amount of information to sift through.  There may even be a move in the near future.  This is not a time to set down roots or make clear cut decisions.  This is a time to be flexible, spontaneous and free.  Enjoy!

Aquarius January 20 – February 18:

Your planetary ruler, Uranus (innovation, rebellion, freedom, surprise, separation), will move into Aries (independent, passionate, aggressive) March 11th.  This will activate the area of your chart that deals with taking classes, teaching classes, taking short trips, getting more involved in your community or even writing.  Pay attention to the inspiration that is guiding you right now.  It could lead you down a whole new and interesting path.

February 2011 Horoscope

by Patty Kamson

February is when the Sun transits through the Air element of Aquarius and the Water element of Pisces.  We’ve entered into month with upheavals and unrest around the world.  Uranus (innovation, rebellion, surprise, separation & freedom) has moved into Aries (warrior, leader, pioneer) and may have helped to usher in this new uncomfortable and sometimes problematic energy.  As we know, change is not always the easiest road to travel but it is something that is always a constant in life.  Uranus is all about getting us out of our comfort zone and on the path of the new and improved or unconventional.  Unfortunately, Egypt, Tunisia, and Israel are feeling the effects of Uranus transiting Aries, which means we are ALL feeling the effects.  I’m not a mundane astrologer, meaning an astrologer who studies world events, so I can’t go into all the specific details of each country’s astrology chart but suffice it to say big changes and revolutions are under way.

Let’s just take one day at a time, enjoy every moment with ease and grace and send love and peace to all in the world that are fighting, struggling, or in pain.  Amen, Namaste, hallelujah!

Check out the following important dates to put on your calendar

February 2nd – New Moon in Aquarius (rebel, intellectual, unique)  - A New Moon represents new beginnings, planting seeds, and setting intentions for the coming month. This is also a time when you may need to let something go to make room for the new and improved coming into your life.  For Aquarius, this is your one new moon of the year so you may want to set time aside to make a plan for the coming year. What do you want to see in 2011? Write it down and then take action during the coming months to make it happen. Signs most affected by this new moon will be Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, Scorpio.

February 3rdVenus (love, money & beauty) enters Capricorn (driven, focused, responsible)

February 4th – Mercury (communication, thought, transportation & travel) enters Aquarius (rebel, intellectual, unique)

February 18th - Full Moon at the last degree of Leo.  A Full Moon represents energy for releasing, letting go, endings and completions and at the last degree of a sign it really emphasizes that fact.  A Full Moon can also mean a culmination of hard work which ends in celebration and maybe even moving into a totally unexpected direction.   Signs most affected by this Full Moon will be Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, Scorpio.

February 21st – Mercury (communication, thought, transportation & travel) enters (intuitive, creative, artistic).

February 22nd – Mars (passion, drive, anger) enters Pisces (intuitive, creative, artistic).

Provided below are the horoscopes for each sign, if you know your Rising/Ascendant sign, read that sign, as well as your Sun sign.  To be clear, the Sun Sign forecast below is a generality.  If you want specific information based on your birth chart, I am available for readings to help you have the best possible year ahead.

Aquarius January 20 – February 18:

Happy Birthday Aquarius!  With so much planetary activity in Aquarius, you are the star this month.  February is a great month to set you goals and intentions for the coming year because you have the baking for the Universe to make it a reality.  Your one New Moon of the year in Aquarius is on February 2nd.  Make sure you set time aside that day to create, compose, and construct your intentions for the coming year!

Pisces February 19 – March 20:

With so much activity in the 12th house (secrets, dreams, intuition, escapism), February will be a time when you may have a need for alone time and solitude to prepare yourself for the Sun moving back into Pisces and your solar return on February 18th.  This is also a year that Mars (passion, sexuality, energy, action) will transit Pisces beginning Feb 22nd.  The last time you had a boost from Mars was March 2009.  This will be a good time to get projects underway and you will also have more energy and follow through to get them to the finish line.

Aries March 21 – April 19:

With Jupiter (good luck, abundance, expansion, truth) in your sign for only a quick six months you will need to capitalize on this good fortune ASAP!  Aries has a tendency to procrastinate and I tell you this is not the time for that.  February is a time to take the bull by the horns and start making things happen.  You have Jupiter on your side to pump up the optimism and adventurous spirit within you to create miracles.

Taurus April 20 – May 20:

Career growth should be your key intention this month.  With the New Moon in Aquarius on Jan 2nd taking place at the top of your chart, this is a time to make your intentions known to the Universe.  Where do you see yourself in the next six months?  When you have the answer to that question you now know your destination.   With that destination in mind create a monthly plan, take action, and make your career dreams come true.

Gemini May 21 – June 21:

The planetary energy in mostly air signs at the beginning of the month will have you feeling exceptionally comfortable and optimistic.  Take this time and go on a weekend get a way or take a class or seminar.  Feed your inquisitive mind and enjoy.  When the Sun moves into Pisces on Feb 18th the ease in which you were operating with will start to tighten up a bit but you will have enjoyed your time and it’s back to the old grind.

Cancer June 22 – July 22:

With so much planetary energy in your houses of self-worth and value this may be a month to take stock of what’s really important to you and the people closest to you.  Take stock to realign yourself back to the core of who you are.  Also, take notice and see how far you had moved away from that core so you don’t continue that pattern.

Leo July 23 – August 22:

With so much planetary activity in your house of marriage and partnerships this will be a time for you to put some energy and effort into re-establishing a healthy connection with those you may have been avoiding or taking for granted.  This also includes business partners.  Ask yourself what happened to those relationships that allowed them to be in such disrepair and ask how you can improve these relationships to bring them back to a place of happiness.  Then set out to heal what is broken or release what is no longer worth the struggle.

Virgo August 23 – September 22:

Virgo if you are looking for the perfect time to start a new fitness and wellness regime your time is here.  The New Moon (beginnings & planting seeds of intention) in Aquarius on Feb 2nd is taking place in your 6th house of health and daily routine, a perfect time to begin a new habit or practice.  Also with so much planetary in your 6th house means that you could be very busy with work obligations.  Make sure you breathe and try not to take on more than you can handle with your Virgo pleasing ways J

Libra September 23 – October 23:

For all you single Libra’s out there this is your month to put on your finest finery and get out there and mingle.  Your 5th house of romance is lit up like the fourth of July until mid February.  If you’re in a relationship this is a great time to rekindle the sparks with the one you love.  It’s also a great time to open doors of opportunity with your creativity and talents.

Scorpio October 24 – November 21:

Home and family is where your heart is going to be this month.  This is a great nesting time to reconnect with your loved ones and take care of domestic chores.  For whatever reason, you have been procrastinating about getting things fixed in the house.   Now is the time to bite the bullet and call that repair man or your honey-do and get the job done.  This month may also bring in a new work project that could expand your business.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21:

Your ruling planet, Jupiter (good luck, abundance, expansion, truth), has moved into your house of romance, children, self-expression, and adventure in the sign of Aries until June 2011.  If you are single, this is a time that an amazing love can come your way.  It’s also a good time to get your creative juices flowing because with so much planetary activity in your 3rd house of negotiations and contracts a deal can be made and the next millionaire is born.

Capricorn December 22 – January 19:

With so much planetary activity in your 2nd house of how you earn your money, I can bet finances are your most prominent thought.  This month you have a great opportunity to get very clear about what needs to stay and what needs to go.  Why are you working so hard?  Do you really need that designer suit, that mini mansion, that luxury car?  Do you really need to eat at the most trendy restaurants or buy that cup of coffee from Starbucks?  Take a look at what you are financially supporting to see that maybe you are working too hard for things that really hold no value in your life anymore.

January 2011 Horoscope

January is when the Sun transits through the Earth element of Capricorn and the Air element of Aquarius.  January starts off with a bang!  All the planets are moving forward.  This hasn’t happened since December of 2008 and with the New Moon Eclipse (karmic happenings) on January 4 as well as Uranus (innovation, rebellion, surprise, separation & freedom) and Jupiter (good luck, expansion, abundance) aspecting each other you couldn’t ask for a better start to the year.  Great possibilities are at your finger tips as 2011 begins!  The best analogy I could give for the start of this month would be that you are driving on an open road and there are no red lights or stop signs for miles and miles but of course there are tight curves and other cars on the road to be aware of.  So, yes the road blocks are removed until January 26th and it’s a great time to take action and make progress but you still have to pay attention to who’s on the road with you and where the twists and turns will lead you…  Saturn the planet of responsibility and lessons will be the first to turn retrograde and slow down the party but that’s Saturn’s job…  See what comes up during this time, the week of January 26th, there may be important clues to what needs to be sorted out in regards to intimate relationships and/or business partnerships.

2011 will be a very interesting year!  We will experience six Eclipses (4 Solar Eclipses & 2 Lunar Eclipses) of karmic happenings instead of the usual four. Jupiter (good luck, expansion, abundance, beliefs) and Uranus (innovation, rebellion, surprise, separation & freedom) are heading out of the last sign of the zodiac (Pisces) this year and beginning a whole new cycle in the first sign of the zodiac, Aries.  Very powerful shifts are taking place.  What in your life are you ready to break free from…  Are you living your life from a place of truth and authenticity…  If yes, this year can be one of expansion and adventure and if not this year can be a test in your commitment to a life that is a lie…  Uranus is the great awakener and in Aries the fire is bright and brings light to where it is dark.  Get ready world, we are in for another exciting ride!

Check out the following important dates to put on your calendar:

January 4th – New Moon Eclipse in Capricorn (driven, focused, responsible)  - A New Moon Eclipse represents a head start with fertilized seeds being planted (which can mean a quicker outcome/manifestation), new beginnings and setting intentions for the coming months. This is also a time when you may need to let something go to make room for the new and improved coming into your life.  For Capricorn, this is your one new moon of the year so you may want to set time aside to make a plan for the coming year. What do you want to see in 2011? Write it down and then take action during the coming months to make it happen. Signs most affected by this new moon will be Capricorn, Cancer, Aries and Libra.

January 5th – 10th -  Uranus (innovation, rebellion, surprise, separation & freedom) and Jupiter (good luck, expansion, abundance) create a great explosion of energy!

January 8thVenus (love, money & beauty) enters Aquarius (unique, intelligent, rebellious)

January 14th – Mercury (communication, thought, transportation & travel) moves back into Capricorn (responsible, disciplined, practical)

January 15th – Mars (passion, drive, anger) enters Sagittarius (adventurer, truth seeker, optimistic).

January 19th - Full Moon at the last degree of Cancer.  A Full Moon represents energy for releasing, letting go, endings and completions and at the last degree of a sign it really emphasizes that fact.  A Full Moon can also mean a culmination of hard work which ends in celebration and maybe even moving into a totally unexpected direction.   Signs most affected by this Full Moon will be Capricorn, Cancer, Aries and Libra.

January 22nd -  Jupiter (good luck, expansion, abundance)  moves into Aries (warrior, leader, pioneer)

Provided below are the horoscopes for each sign, if you know your Rising/Ascendant sign, read that sign, as well as your Sun sign.  To be clear, the Sun Sign forecast below is a generality.  If you want specific information based on your birth chart, I am available for readings to help you have the best possible year ahead.

2011 starts with all the planets in the sky moving in a forward motion!  The last time this happened was in December 2008.  This will definitely give you an opportunity to jump start your year with action!  Just remember Mercury is still getting his bearings so things may not move as smoothly or as quickly as you would like but there should be progress.  Your one New Moon of the year is a Solar Eclipse (karmic happenings) in Capricorn on January 4th.  Make sure you set time aside that day to create, compose, and construct your intentions for the coming year!
