ARIES [Mar 21 - Apr 19]
If you are investing a lion share of your energy and time into something, you want to make sure it is leading you somewhere solid and sound. Your ruler Mars is in Gemini and squaring elusive Neptune. The edginess of the square can generate enough of a build up of energy to catapult you into new realms of visibility, but if what you are after is not meant to be or rooted in a fantasy, the square can turn the dream into dust, or create a feeling of invisibility. Pluto and Saturn are also shifting retrograde in your house of career this week. Pluto stations retro Wednesday, April 24, for five and a half months and Saturn stations retro on Sunday, April 28, for four and a half months, making this next window in time a highly reflective period for how you dedicate your efforts and where you energize commitments for this next chapter of your life. Fortunately, Mercury and Venus are both in your sign, gifting you with an added hit of courage, which for an Aries born equals a life line. Mercury partners with your ruler Mars on Tuesday, April 30, and finds Jupiter in the days that follow to feed your plan with a wild optimism.
What feels like the bottom dropping out today will lead to a tangible truth taking flight by then!
TAURUS [Apr 20 - May 21]
So much unknown may be consuming the confines of your mind these days with Mercury and your ruler Venus in Aries transiting your house of seamless, timeless realms. It can be a challenge to find your footing or to have a real sense of where you will end up when your Soul has finished this energetic flight. The first real sign of land occurs on Tuesday, April 30, when Mercury and Mars join hands and lead you in view of an approaching runway. Your ruler Venus then steps in to form a mutual angle of optimal harmonization with Mars but not for several days following, which simply means it may take you a week to feel good about the idea of something that has been presented to you, as you will be mulling it over. Pluto and Saturn both reverse directions this week in fellow earth sign Capricorn for the next four to five months, which will benefit you well as it buys you time to re-connect with people, places and things that energize a feeling of abundance. Slowing down a process is just what the cosmic doctor ordered.
Take some time to feel 'into' and 'all the way through' it and this will equal the gift that keeps on giving!
GEMINI [May 22 - Jun 21]
It can be a bit ‘cra-cra’ out there, as in crazy making. Your ruler Mars is in your sign and squaring Neptune in Pisces, which can blow the ceiling off anything that appears level headed or of sane mind. Prepare for some more eyebrow raising days, and yet also know that it is precisely this kind of tension that can also get someone’s immediate attention. Pluto and Saturn are reversing their motion together in Capricorn this week and will be in re-vamping mode for the next four to five months, suggesting your Soul will be shedding some pounds and letting go of old baggage. Hallelujah for that. Your ruler Mercury and Venus are in warrior Aries in your house of innovation and breakthroughs, feeding you well with insights regarding ways you can immediately influence a favorable change of scenery. Your mind will be working smart and as fast as a whip. Your turning point comes when your ruler Mercury collaborates with Mars in your sign on Tuesday, April 30. Jupiter follows with a gift.
Goodbye old and hello stunningly new!
CANCER [Jun 22 - Jul 22]
I never need to remind you to feel a thing. For you Cancer, emotions lead and the thoughts trail behind. Currently, Mars, the planet governing your instinct, is in Gemini in your house of the invisible realm and is squaring mysterious Neptune, adding a world of even greater emotion to embody your inner space. It can create a fear of the unknown and a disillusionment can tend to set in. Pluto and Saturn are also retrograding together this week in Capricorn and will be putting you in a highly reflective state for the next four to five months. This can create a necessary dismantling of your relationships and in turn, a re-building upon a new base that can withstand the test of time. So how do you navigate this next week? Lean on your gut and your God. Trust in right timing. While you wait this one out until mid May when you will be stepping into the limelight, slip into spaces that have repeatedly nurtured you. In addition, reach for more evolved expressions of sifting through the proverbial mud.
It all starts with Rising Above!
LEO [Jul 23 - Aug 22]
Saturn and Pluto are both stationing retrograde in Capricorn this week and will be traveling in tandem as they dip into a reflective slide until September and October respectively. Consider this to be a bit like pre-season training for the next leg in your journey. This is occurring in your house of health and improvements across the board suggesting there will be a high degree of focus on how you can improve how you bring all that you are to the daily grind. You will experience the power of simplifying your life firsthand and the supreme benefits of de-cluttering your inner space. Fortunately, you will have some help getting started with Mercury and Venus in fellow fire sign Aries serving to light a fire under you, motivating you to remove everything that is taking up sacred space. You will also be feeling called to delve deeper into your karma yoga ie your right work, and the work you can do to help this planet. With Mars in Gemini squaring Neptune, something may be keeping you away from fun with friends but Mars and Mercury join forces by Tuesday, April 30, to help you get back into a good groove again.
A loving feeling follows!
VIRGO [Aug 23 - Sep 22]
You have the tendency to spend a majority of your time in your head, and with Mars now in Gemini, the energy doubles the weight and adds additional speed to your thoughts. However, Mars in Gemini is currently squaring Neptune, which can literally pull you so far outside your mind that you may resist making a return. It has you longing for the dream, along with energizing a strong desire to strive for a life that only exists in your imagination. Your ruler Mercury is in passionate Aries and will be combining in empowering ways to Mars in Gemini as we pull into next week, thus empowering you as well to take greater risks in your life under the banner of ‘nothing to lose’. You may feel challenged now more than ever, but you will feel prepared to rise to this evolutionary occasion. Pluto and Saturn's retrograde in Capricorn for the next four to five months will bring a deepening in your commitment to your creative life purpose, energizing a committed determination to take responsibility for what your Soul set out to accomplish in this life. This starts with cultivating more of your creative capacity and seeing just how far you can take it.
This sky is your ceiling!
LIBRA [Sep 23 - Oct 23]
With Mars in fellow air sign Gemini and squaring Neptune, you may be experiencing some form of overwhelm. You have ambitious goals in place and yet there are responsibilities to loved ones that may also be keeping you anchored. Saturn and Pluto are both shifting retrograde in Capricorn in your house of home and the emotional body for the next four to five months, suggesting great change will be occurring within these halls, starting with the work you are doing within. It can feel a bit like boot camp along these lines, but the result will be worth the deep digging and unearthing. It’s similar to an athlete training for their sport. The goal being to increase the distance while decreasing the amount of time it takes to get there. It is not a true workout without the stretch and the pain pushing the Soul forward. In the midst of working on your self, there is energy that calls for working on your connections with others as well. Mercury and your ruler Venus in Aries are demanding that you keep up a dialogue that supports the growth of your bond. You will experience some headway next week, with you and with them.
In the meantime, love surrounds you!
SCORPIO [Oct 24 - Nov 21]
Your Soul is taking its foot off the pedal this week Scorpio, as your ruler Pluto in Capricorn comes to a stop and reverses direction on Wednesday, April 24. Saturn, the ruler for Capricorn, is also slowing down to shift retrograde on Sunday, April 28. These major forces will be retrograde for the next four to five months. If you feel as if you have been spreading yourself too thin or that you have far too many balls in the air, this trend will help you focus on what can better sustain you or allow for a focus that contributes more deeply to the evolution of your Soul. When your interests are divided or pulling you in opposing directions, then your ability to be fully present to one diminishes. You will be getting in deep touch with how to prepare for your next chapter. It will allow you to eliminate the superfluous and the things in your life that do not contribute to your ultimate journey. If there are unfinished conversations and agreements that need to take place, this will also allow that to happen. Mercury and loving Venus are in Aries in your house of improvements, which is having you pay attention to all the nitty gritty details that will allow for your version of perfection to take place.
Prepare to turn a strong corner by Tuesday, April 30, as something will be ready to launch!
SAGITTARIUS [Nov 22 - Dec 21]
Nothing is more unsettling than the silent treatment. You Sag are as out spoken as they come and you are known for wearing your truth on your sleeve, at times perhaps too much of it. So when someone falls silent, it can send you into a spin. Mars is in your opposite sign of Gemini and squaring Neptune in Pisces, which can cause your emotional reality to cave in. This experience comes from not knowing where something is headed or feeling relatively powerless in your ability to control how it goes. The key to experiencing immediate relief is in knowing your intentions have been pure and that you have done everything in your power to direct the tides. A surrendering of sorts must follow so that larger forces can take the wheel. Mercury and Venus are in fellow fire sign Aries, allowing you to communicate effectively and with courage, as well as encouraging your heart to open up more to a process. The soonest desirable outreach that will grant you with a clear understanding regarding where things stand occurs Tuesday, April 30, and the good fortune grows in the days that follow.
In the meantime, Venus in Aries will keep a warm fire going, one that activates your heart and in time, illuminates the way!
CAPRICORN [Dec 22 - Jan 19]
Your tolerance for timelines and red tape will be officially tapped out by Sunday, April 28, when your ruler Saturn stations retrograde in your sign. Four days prior, Pluto in your sign reverses directions as well, which will increase your ability to sniff out the BS a mile away. You are feeling rebellious already. Saturn retrograde carries a Uranian quality that does not allow you to want to follow the usual rules. You may wish to re-invent yourself or commit to doing work that only reflects your unique way in the world. Mars is in your house of improvements and as he squares Neptune early on, it will increase your desire to clean house in every respect, starting with replacing unwanted thoughts with a counter thought that brings out the best in you.
Practice this new approach and by next week when Mercury in Aries syncs up with Mars in Gemini and then follows with a harmonizing hold on Jupiter, your new optimistic view will be a lock!
AQUARIUS [Jan 20 - Feb 19]
So much of the intensity that comes with the Soul taking a deeper dive into its journey is occurring on the inner planes for you Aquarius. Pluto and Saturn are in Capricorn and reversing directions this week, which will inevitably have you going toe to toe again with anything unresolved from your past. Undoubtedly things have already been surfacing with the transiting South Node’s recent current tour. Pluto and Saturn will be traveling retrograde together for the next four to five months giving you plenty of time to continue closing old chapters and putting the past to rest. These things simply do not happen over night, and for you, something may have felt to be lifetimes old. In some cases, you will be experiencing final karmic closure between now and January of 2020. Mars in fellow air sign has been giving your heart a strong charge and energizing a greater feeling of courage but this week, Mars is also squaring Neptune which can make the dream lose some steam. So if you feel determined to sell yourself or an idea, wait until the beginning of May. They won’t know what him them.
A door is about to open!
PISCES [Feb 19 - Mar 20]
While an elusive reality may have returned yet again with action Mars in Gemini squaring your ruler Neptune, it won’t be for long. You will come to quickly know what is worth your attention and what will never be worth your heart and time. This aspect may serve as a spring board launching you into a positive trajectory or it could show you the truth of an empty offer. Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn are also reversing directions at the same time, which will have you deeply reflecting upon the right way forward for your Soul, not just for now, but in the long run too. Instead of feeling as if everyone else has control over your destiny, you will begin to feel like the one holding the cards is you. While you will be feeling inspired and more clear as we pull into next week, your warrior spirit will not fully return until Mars enters fellow water sign Cancer mid May. Mercury will partner with Mars on Tuesday, April 30, allowing for verbal exchanges that tell you where you stand. An exceptional opportunity follows by Friday, May 3. Let life play itself out and you'll see who comes out on top.
My bet it's you!
