ARIES [Mar 21 - Apr 19]

Feeling pulled like taffy? Life may be feeling heavy and hard at every turn with loving Venus in your sign and squaring Pluto, Saturn, and the South Node in high pressure Capricorn. All of your go-to’s that have historically helped to take life’s edge off are not even working any longer. However, Venus is determined to make your world better as she recruits generous Jupiter in fellow fire sign Sagittarius as a guiding force to help you manifest more abundance on Thursday, May 9. Just as life peaks, here comes the relief. A significant someone may step in to support your efforts and this alone will allow you to feel your life force returning. Venus continues on to find your ruler Mars in Gemini, and while they do not partner up until Tuesday, May 14, they are traveling in tandem this weekend and into next week. Venus is bridging a gravitational gap and it will be her role in your life that will have you feeling grateful that someone else is taking the lead for a change.

Evolution can be a delicate dance. It’s about knowing when to push and when to let go. Jupiter gifts you with the gut check you need to turn the tides again in your favor!

TAURUS [Apr 20 - May 21]

When push comes to shove, you are the boss Taurus, and you are not going to budge if it's against your will. Your ruler Venus in Aries is squaring Saturn and will follow with a square to Pluto on Thursday, May 9, energizing themes of power plays and karmic run-ins with others. Venus and Pluto in this heated square can expose things that have been hidden or unearth emotions of yours that may have been repressed. It is ultimately a healthy thing to know what you have been holding onto. This may also connect to themes around money and your resources, knowing you have to fork it out in order to get a profitable return. While this week may feel intense early on, Venus then aligns magically with prosperous Jupiter on Thursday, May 9, and you immediately feel the pressure lift you into a new realm of growing opportunity. It’s like having a near death experience where fear intersects with a formless freedom having you wonder what you were so afraid of.

Venus then moves swiftly to find Mars in Gemini this weekend and into early next week, and they partner up in a way that keeps your feet on the ground and your heart flying high!

GEMINI [May 22 - Jun 21]

You may be experiencing an inevitable ending occurring in a relationship or two with loving Venus in Aries squaring Saturn as well as Pluto in Capricorn in your house of the Soul. This is a window of time where you will be eliminating relationships that no longer serve you or you may be sensing something imminent on the horizon. It may be that your values differ and that you cannot find a place to meet or it simply comes down to trust. Fortunately, honest Jupiter in Sagittarius will show you the truth of a relationship potential on Thursday, May 9, and it may even invite in a new one that is a more natural fit. If your are in a relationship that is thriving, this trend will reveal any weak links and allow you to grow from having the courage to talk about what is missing. Loving Venus progresses along and finds action Mars in your sign on Tuesday, May 14, but the days leading up to the exact conjunction are also stacked in your favor. You really can work through just about anything this week, it all depends on what it's worth to you.

If you dig IN all the way, then there is no place to go but UP!

CANCER [Jun 22 - Jul 22]

One of your primary lessons in this life is to cultivate those inner valleys and learn the art of emotional self reliance. This requires you to stand on your own and feel all the way through and into the truth of anything without the kind of fear that causes you to retreat. Venus in Aries is squaring Saturn in your opposite sign and will follow with a square to Pluto also in Capricorn on Thursday, May 9. The very same day, Venus also forms a favorable trine to Jupiter in Sagittarius, offering you a way through and an impressive leap on the journey of your Soul. It will require you to confront others wherever you feel you are in the dark or uncertain of where the relationship is headed. Jupiter will make something easier than you had feared as long as you have the courage to get in the ring. Venus then travels along and couples with action Mars in Gemini in your house of the heavens, suggesting you will experience living proof of this invisible realm playing an optimal role in your journey.

Keep praying, chanting, and asking, whatever your medicine proves to be, and the Gods will make your next steps as obvious as they come!

LEO [Jul 23 - Aug 22]

You may be unusually hard on yourself at the onset of this week, and perhaps a bit nit-picky with others as well with loving Venus in fellow fire sign Aries squaring Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn in your house of improvements. You are focusing on what is lacking and missing in order to make it better as you strive for relative perfection in a key area. Obviously nothing is ever perfect but you are working to perfect what you can. You may be feeling low on energy initially but on Thursday, May 9, Venus in Aries will form a supportive trine to Jupiter in fellow fire sign Sagittarius, to remind you how effortless something can be when your heart is in the right place. Instead of a round peg trying to fit into a square hole, you experience the perfect fit as something makes its way into your world naturally. Venus in Aries continues on her journey to tap into the energy of Mars in Gemini, fueling inspiration for innovation and breakthroughs in relationships. You approach and make an unusual entry.

Follow your instinct even if it feels foreign to you, it will lead you into liberating lands.

VIRGO [Aug 23 - Sep 22]

A trust in yourself is being tested. Venus is in Aries in your house of empowerment, and squaring Saturn and Pluto in fellow earth sign Capricorn. Virgos are experiencing a growing confidence and a conviction is brewing that is inspiring. My daughter, also a Virgo, is a dancer. I remember when she was young she used to practice her pieces repeatedly until she could do them in her sleep. The preparation was as important to her as the final act. Just today she walked into a ballet class that she is taking in school to find she had missed the memo for midterms as she watched the students warming up for their test. She closed her eyes and said to herself that the past ten years of dancing had prepared her for this moment, that everything she needs she already has within her. She inwardly prepared four counts of eight and grabbed her music and onto the stage she went. Perfection without preparation. This is what is in store for you this week with regard to something you have been working on for years and it will remind you that you are in fact ready for the curtain call. One little test may very well lead to some very big things. Clearing emotional hurdles promotes a sea change of energy.

Trust yourself and you are destined to shine!

LIBRA [Sep 23 - Oct 23]

The energy is big this week in both directions; it's high on intensity and equally high on opportunity. Your ruler Venus has her work cut out for her and so do you. Early on, Venus squares Saturn as well as Pluto in Capricorn which may have you feeling the gravity of this key turning point in time and your role in how it all plays out. You are shouldering a great deal at the moment. However, on Thursday, May 9, Venus in Aries will form a beautiful trine to abundant Jupiter so don't be surprised if someone comes riding in on a horse to save the day. You will get the support you need before too long or the backing that can make the dream fly. Venus will then weave her way into a positive position to action Mars in fellow air sign Gemini, allowing your communications with someone who has the power to change your life go better than planned. You may be questioning everything early on, but by this time next week, the vision becomes clear and the ball is in your court. If you trust your hunches, you will come out the other side with a win.

Lean on the knowing that Venus is going to battle for you and she won’t stop until you get what you want!

SCORPIO [Oct 24 - Nov 21]

It has been a game of hardball to some degree with your ruler Pluto in Capricorn traveling with Sgt. Saturn and the South Node, the symbol for the past. Either unfinished business has found its way back into your world or memories of old have been rising up like a bubble finding its way to the surface of the sea, especially as it relates to relationships where you may have felt abandoned or betrayed. Prepare to feel triggered at times initially. Loving Venus is squaring Saturn and Pluto as we initiate this forecast week which may poke at some of those old wounds, but on Thursday, May 9, Venus will form an empowering angle to generous Jupiter granting you with an inner optimism that far outshines any shadow of weakness, strengthening you from the inside out. Venus will then carry on and combine with Mars in your house of the Soul throughout the weekend and into early next week, energizing a courage to go into the deep with another so the air can be cleared and evolution can happen. Trust issues are due to surface so be ready to deal with them head on.

Deeper intimacy awaits!

SAGITTARIUS [Nov 22 - Dec 21]

There is nothing worse than not having enough leg room on a flight for it creates this feeling of being trapped. While you crave movement, you are a Soul who requires plenty of freedom and space to feel into who you are in full. Loving Venus in fellow fire sign Aries is squaring Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn as we enter this week, creating that cramped kind of feeling which can effect the degree of altitude your Soul can access. It may also be that you are working yourself into the ground or not feeling like you can come up for air. Help is on the way Sag as Venus aligns expansively with your ruler Jupiter transiting through your sign on Thursday, May 9. It may be too that you just need a change of scenery, something to look forward to, or a piece of good news. Jupiter wouldn’t dare let you down. After Venus levitates with Jupiter and has you feeling more like yourself again, she will progressively increase your magnetism this weekend and early next week as she blends seamlessly with Mars, heating up your world of relationships.

Wherever there has been a feeling of density, prepare for some levity. Wherever life has felt flat, prepare to expand and flower into a full blown bloom!

CAPRICORN [Dec 22 - Jan 19]

Even though you may be surrounded by plenty of people, this week starts with a potentially haunting feeling of being alone even in a crowd. We've all been there. You can feel the tug and you know it's there for a reason, you know it is due to an inner call for more work to be done there. It may also be a time where you are truly experiencing the adage,“If you want something done right, then do it yourself.” Loving Venus is in Aries in your house of the emotional body and is squaring your ruler Saturn, as well as Pluto in your sign at the onset of this forecast week. However, you will not have to climb this mountain alone. Venus looks to the sky and aligns in heavenly ways to expansive Jupiter and it will be the sheer presence of this generous giant that reminds you that you are never ever alone. Venus isn’t through though, she ventures on and partners with Mars in Gemini throughout the weekend and into early next week, increasing your level of productivity and granting you with a desirable momentum, that alone will lift your spirits. What is in stress today, will soon be a distant memory.

A higher love fills the gaps!

AQUARIUS [Jan 20 - Feb 19]

It may have been a challenge to express how you feel, even more so lately Aquarius with Venus, the planet of relationships squaring Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. There may be an invisible block that you just cannot put your finger on. In addition, your ruler Uranus in Taurus is in your house of home and the emotional body, making your emotions feel like an interrupted energy stream, similar to the sound of stacatto in music, where there is space between the sound of the notes. A good analogy is the widely known waltz for the piano called Chopsticks, most early students first stab at making music with their fingers on those ivory keys. Mercury moves in front of Uranus in Taurus on Thursday, May 9, the same day that loving Venus and Jupiter form a highly favorable trine. It may in fact be a piece of music that is responsible for allowing you to clear the hurdle as it has a way of removing resistance and dissolving detachment until all that is left is pure emotion. Mars in fellow air sign Gemini unites with loving Venus in Aries this weekend and into early next week to open your heart and lead you all way into the center of a feeling. Prepare to harmonize with something or someone without gaps.

Welcome to the feeling of fusion!

PISCES [Feb 19 - Mar 20]

It can be a challenge to sift through the cosmic soup and lean in one particular direction, but one stellar combination that you can lean into is your ruler Neptune in your sign is forming an effortless angle of support to the North Node in fellow water sign Cancer, the symbol for your destiny. In essence, this speaks to a natural ease in surrendering to the emotional river that flows within you. No matter what is going on in the world, you will be better able to take the high road and keep your eye on the bigger picture.
