October Horoscopes

October Horoscopes

Over the past several months, a number of you have reached out to me for sessions because you have discovered or uncovered some big, life-changing truth. The diagnosis of an illness, an incredible opportunity, a revealed secret, or a truth about who you are and how you need to show up differently in the world. These are times of discovery, and this month is no exception. Dig deep into your psyche, feel the resonance of truth in your heart, and you will be free.

On October 2, Pluto stations direct, giving us the go-ahead to put a spotlight on corruption in government, religion, and other institutions (Capricorn’s domain). It also gives you an opportunity to come out of hiding in some way in your life. On October 3, Mercury enters Scorpio and assists with this effort. It will start to slow down and enter its shadow phase on October 15 and then station retrograde on October 31.

This Mercury retrograde period could reveal more truth. Feel all the feelings, and know that any struggle will pass. Know, too, that any elation will also pass. This retrograde cycle could present you with key life decisions. Do you stay or go? Those kinds of decisions. Clarify your intentions and clear distractions. This mercury retrograde could be quite emotional, but you won’t likely feel it until the very end of the month. Until then, buckle up! You’re in for a ride.

The Full Moon on October 13 makes a T-square to Pluto, the planet of power and transformation. Mark your calendar for this one, as it will tug your heartstrings and could lead to lasting changes in your love life. The Moon in Aries opposes the Sun in Libra. This axis line is about self and others. It’s about being in relationships without losing yourself. It’s about finding balance within the power structures of your relationships without dominating others or, conversely, abdicating your power. The T-square with Pluto punctuates these themes. If you are an Aries, Libra, Cancer, or Capricorn, this will likely affect you more strongly than other signs.

On October 20 and 21, Venus applies aspects to Saturn and Neptune, helping restore balance to relationships and helping clear any anxiety you may have felt throughout the month in general.

On October 23, the Sun enters Scorpio, and the New Moon on October 27 clears a canvas for you to tap into your creativity. What would you like to make happen in your life next year? Imagine the possibilities.

Moments of turbulence throughout the month may feel like tremors in your life. Establish new grounding and center yourself. Try to focus on the present moment, rather than worry about the future or revisit the past. Understand you may not be able to change the circumstances of your life, but you can change your responses to them. Above all, stay positive! Miracles can and do occur. Just look at where you are right now! How many miracles have paved the path you’ve traveled? These are miraculous times, and often chaos precedes the creation of something magnificent.

September Horoscopes

September Horoscopes

We start the back-to-school season with the perfect planetary alignment. Mercury, Venus, Mars, and the Sun are all in analytical Virgo, and they will apply aspects to Uranus early in the month. You will be motivated to accomplish most of the items on your to-do-list, thanks to Virgo’s work ethic, ability to tune out distractions, and time management skills. You could also become inspired by a bright new idea or pursue a creative endeavor.

You could overdo it if you’re not careful, as the Virgo planets will square Jupiter.  You want to keep stress levels down. Think of working in small increments, one thing at a time. 

Watch your health this month. The personal planets in Virgo, Jupiter in Sagittarius, and Neptune in Pisces, all relate with one another throughout the first part of the month, making us all more sensitive. Boost your immune system and use Virgo’s discipline to eat a healthier diet. Consider seeing a naturopathic doctor, acupuncturist, herbalist, or healer. 

The Full Moon on Friday, the 13th, in Pisces could be an emotional one. Your intuition could be heightened, allowing you to know what’s not working in your life. Let it go! Realize this is a foggy, unclear Full Moon. Pause and give any new insights time to settle before making any moves. 

On the 14thVenus enters her sign, Libra, helping relationships, social interactions, and most importantly, self-love. Start with self-care. 

On September 21, use your intuition to discern truth from fiction. We have a third and final Jupiter - Neptune square. Reflect on what was happening in your life on January 13 and June 16, as these storylines will draw to a close. The nature of Jupiter is expansive, larger-than-life, and generous. It magnifies anything it comes in contact with, in this case, Neptune. Neptune symbolizes dreams, visions, and ideals, but also, it represents illusion, confusion, and disillusionment. You may question what’s real or not during the few days before and after this transit perfects. Make sure your news sources are credible and avoid gossip. 

April Horoscopes

April Horoscopes

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

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

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

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

March Horoscopes

March Horoscopes

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

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

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

February Horoscopes

February Horoscopes

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

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

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

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

October Horoscopes

October Horoscopes

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

June Horoscopes

June Horoscopes

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

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

May Horoscopes

May Horoscopes

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

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

March Horoscopes

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

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

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

December Horoscopes

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 19):

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

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

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 22 - OCTOBER 22):

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

Cancer (June 21-July 22):

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

Capricorn (December 22-January 19):

Happy birthday! I invite you to kick off your new solar year with a moment of reflection. Take a deep breath and think about 2016. What was your major theme for the year? What accomplishments did you achieve? Did you fall in love? Did you grieve a loss? Did you let go of something or someone? It was a transformational time for all of us on the planet, but you may have felt it more intensely than other signs because you experienced a culmination of changes that began in 2012. For four years, the Universe has been working with you to co-create your life in significant ways. As we enter 2017, you are beginning the next chapter of your life.
