Your challenge this month is to balance your desire for fun in the moment with the need to keep a watchful eye on the future. A cluster of planets in your 5th House of Play can tempt you with immediate gratification, but the Sagittarius Full Moon Eclipse on June 4 galvanizes your aspirations in your 11th House of Long-Term Goals. Its opposition to sweet-hearted Venus—retrograde in flirtatious Gemini until June 27—reveals what may be lacking in the romance department. The eclipse’s square to warrior Mars in nitpicky Virgo provokes you to argue with others to make your position known. But you’re likely to change your mind, especially when permissive Jupiter enters fickle Gemini and your spontaneous 5th House on June 11 for a one-year visit.
Meanwhile, you grow increasingly frustrated as the demands of your daily routine interfere with what you really want to do in your life thanks to a long-lasting and intensifying square between unsettling Uranus and unrelenting Pluto. The first of seven Uranus-Pluto squares occurs on June 24 in a series that lasts until 2015, but its arrival is heralded on June 11 when Mercury squares Uranus and opposes Pluto. Nevertheless, the indecisive Gemini New Moon on June 19 indicates that you might not be quite ready to face the large-scale changes ahead.Read More
Although your feet are on the ground and you’re confident about achieving success this month, step back and reconsider what you want most or you might end up heading in the wrong direction. The Sun is in solid Taurus until May 20, activating your 4th House of Foundations. Meanwhile, the insightful Scorpio Full Moon on May 5 illuminates your 10th House of Status, revealing complexities in professional and social relationships that affect your progress at work and in the community. But the Sun’s conjunction with prosperous Jupiter on May 13 fills you with such a strong sense of well-being that you’re tempted to set your goals too high and then try to pursue them anyhow.
Fortunately, a steadying Grand Earth Trine with energizing Mars and compelling Pluto on May 13-16 is anchored by thoughtful Mercury in your personal 4th House, demanding that you contemplate the consequences of your actions prior to starting something you won’t be able to finish.Read More
Obstacles fall by the wayside this month as you break free from whatever limitations have been holding you back. If you’ve been stuck in a boring routine, the pace of events in your personal life picks up nicely on April 3, when flirty Venus dances into interactive Gemini and quicksilver Mercury turns direct on April 4. A second energetic boost arrives when enterprising Mars—who’s been retrograde in your 8th House of Transformation since January 23—also commences moving forward on April 13.
Changes that began last year and then were put on the back burner for one reason or another now take center stage as your recent efforts to deepen relationships finally start to bring results. The busyness of your daily schedule is further emphasized by the Sun, which is in go-getter Aries and your 3rd House of Communication until April 19; then it moves into placid Taurus and your 4th House of Home and Family.Read More
Money issues are on your plate this month with the Sun in your 2nd House of Personal Resources—and its opposition to insistent Mars in your 8th House of Shared Resources on March 3 means that others are involved in your financial picture, too. Mars in introspective Virgo is retrograde, turning your energy inward as you seek solutions through logical analysis rather than overt action. The cautious Virgo Full Moon is conjunct to action-planet Mars on March 8 in your regenerative 8th House, but even if you know your next move, you might not be able to put your plan into motion yet.
Someone comes to your rescue or you receive sound advice on March 13-14 when Mars forms a practical Grand Earth Trine with sweet Venus, magnanimous Jupiter, and insightful Pluto. But everything takes longer than you wish since your everyday life is so busy, with mischievous Mercury turning retrograde in your 3rd House of Immediate Environment on March 12.Read More
It’s all about you as the Sun in brilliant Aquarius illuminates your 1st House of Self until February 19. Your perceptions are keen and you’re able to easily put your thoughts into words while prolific Mercury is also traveling through your sign until February 13. However, the Leo Full Moon on February 7 shines in your 7th House of Partners to remind you that there are others, too, whose needs you must also consider.
And it’s not enough for you to think you know what someone else wants; Mercury’s alignment with this Sun-Moon opposition requires you to be fully involved in the give-and-take of dialogue as you balance your desires with another person’s needs. This is accentuated by the ongoing retrograde of assertive Mars in your 8th House of Intimacy this month.Read More
The New Year brings prospects of big changes, yet you’re wise to start slowly and be realistic about how long it will take to reach your goals. You still have some old business to complete with the Sun in dutiful Capricorn and your 12th House of Endings until January 20. Communicator Mercury keeps your thoughts anchored to reality when it, too, visits earthy Capricorn on January 8-27.
Bold Mars is currently energizing your 8th House of Transformation, yet his presence in finicky Virgo demands that you move ahead one small step at a time. Additionally, your progress can be mired in red tape and delays as active Mars slows to turn retrograde on January 23. Practice flexibility and let your schedule slip when required; remember that pushing harder will only bring frustration.Read More
