Last Day of the Aries Sun This is Good Friday and the last day of the high-energy Aries sun. It’s time to slow down and approach life as a marathon instead of a sprinting race. If you think that your many responsibilities do not allow you the extravagance of doing something nice for yourself each […]

Horoscope, Friday, April 11, 2014

Practical Virgo Moon There is no benefit to telling others what you think they need. People don’t agree to what others think they need; they agree to what makes sense to them. If you want to influence others, the practical Virgo moon suggests building a case that focuses on the many benefits others will experience […]

Last Day of Venus in Aquarius You may feel momentarily helpless to change what needs changing, but this, too, will pass as your perspective shifts.

Horoscope, Friday, March 28, 2014

Cosmic Call for Respect Though most people appreciate gestures of respect, they tend to put the highest value on those that are commensurate with what has been earned. Too much deference makes even a very powerful person suspicious, while not enough causes obvious irritation. The dynamics lining up between Venus, Mars and Jupiter bring awareness […]

Horoscope, Sunday, March 23, 2014

Water Signs Stir Emotions An ongoing ticker tape stripes the lower screen of our consciousness. Every decision we make, including the decision of how to feel, starts with a thought. Be choosy as you pluck thoughts from the never-ending stream, and you’ll effectively manage your emotions even as Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn transit emotional water […]

Horoscope, Friday, March 21, 2014

Aries Sun Day Two How was your first day of the new season? The passage of the sun into Aries represents new birth, so you may feel as though you’re going into the future with innocent eyes. The Pisces moon suggests that those eyes will take in what’s happening on a spiritual level first, and […]

Horoscope, Friday, February 21, 2014

Moon and Mercury Square The moon and Mercury will square off, reminding us that words can be escape artists. Also, once they leave our lips (or fly from our fingers in the form of digital media), they can be impossible to retrieve. Don’t let emotions get the better of your self-control. Think first; talk second. […]

Horoscope, Friday, February 14, 2014

Full Leo Moon Rules Valentine’s Day The full Leo moon is the Queen of Hearts this Valentine’s Day, and she’s every bit as dramatic as the excitable character from Wonderland who freely declared, “Off with their heads!” In this case, you can lose said “head” in favor of the heart’s guidance. Over-thinking is the death […]

Horoscope, Friday, February 7, 2014

Powerful Aquarius Sun Mercury won’t help out today, but the caring Aquarius sun, undaunted, suggests that you can still build your power by helping people get what they need or want. Be careful not to use force when you could use power. Force is draining. It’s built on a system of reward and punishment that […]

Horoscope, Friday, January 31, 2014

Mercury in Wise Pisces In business, the rule of thumb goes: If someone is trying to give you money, don’t make it difficult for that person to do so. There’s little reason to put up with slacker employees who waste the customer’s time. A well-executed complaint might not save polite society from falling into the […]

Horoscope, Friday, January 24, 2014

Political Trine The air trine formed by Mercury in Aquarius and Mars in Libra lends the gift of eloquence for those who strive to attain it. Also, this is a lucky alignment for the bold yet politically minded who want to make a diplomatic play for power. If there truly is a mutual benefit to […]

Horoscope, Friday, January 17, 2014

Venus and Mars Patch It Up Venus and Mars aren’t exactly getting along these days, and perhaps your relationship with members of the opposite sex has been strained, as well.

Horoscope, Friday, January 10, 2014

Cosmic Coat of Arms If you had to create your own personal coat of arms, what is the symbol that would most meaningfully represent you? The trine of the sun in Capricorn and the Taurus moon will illuminate such personal symbols. Stay observant, and these representations of our consciousness will show up in surprising places. […]

Horoscope, Friday, January 3, 2014

Mercury Opposes Jupiter Capricorn has an ambitious influence on Mercury, and with Jupiter in Cancer playing tug-of-war from across the sky, status symbols that are not technically in the budget could suddenly have magnetic appeal. During this opposition, loved ones may disagree about what’s necessary and what’s over the top. ARIES (March 21-April 19). If […]

Horoscope, Friday, December 27, 2013

Scorpio Moon of Intensity When the moon moves from lighthearted Libra into highly concentrated Scorpio, she is in the most intense part of the sky.

Horoscope, Friday, December 20, 2013

Sagittarius Sun and Unlucky 13 The Sagittarian solar crossing is a lucky omen even on Friday the 13th. The Taurus moon has us satisfying appetites of all varieties without the impediment of misfortune. If there is one area in which we are unlucky, it’s in knowing when to stop. Self-control and regulating systems are needed […]

Horoscope, Friday, December 6, 2013

Mercury Challenges Neptune People may not mean to step on one another’s dreams, and yet discouraging words could be exchanged while Mercury and Neptune are at odds. Refuse to take offense. Let the opinions and information you hear inform instead of upset you. This is easier to pull off if you can detach yourself from […]

Horoscope, Friday, November 29, 2013

Sagittarian Sun Adventure While the very sensitive people among us will need time to recuperate and recharge alone, the rest of the population wants an adventure. With the Sagittarius sun favoring exploration and the Libra moon greasing the wheels of social interaction, those who want a smooth, safe ride only need to hop on. ARIES […]

Horoscope, Friday, November 22, 2013

First Full Day of Sagittarius Sun Dolphins, when tested in a lab, have been known to choose the “I don’t know” option, proving that they are less stubborn and more aware than people who refuse to stop and ask for directions. This first full day of the Sagittarius sun has a way of opening up […]

Horoscope, Friday, November 8, 2013

Industrious Moon If you hear the distant sound of snapping fingers, that’s the Capricorn moon reminding us to move it along because there’s much more work to be done.

Horoscope, Friday, October 18, 2013

Full Aries Moon The full Aries moon is a warrior intent on fighting passionately for a side. It’s a good time to reinforce in your own mind what you stand for and what you’re willing to defend or go on the offensive to achieve. The eclipse will be like a theatrical curtain closing briefly for […]

Horoscope, Friday, October 11, 2013

Capricorn Moon of Responsibility The Capricorn moon insists we get something done so we can present it to the powers that be. If there are gold stars to be earned, many will compete to earn them. Everyone wants an excellent report card to bring back to the parental figures. If you’re the authority figure, your […]

Horoscope, Friday, October 4, 2013

New Moon of Beauty It’s been estimated that watching television commercials can triple a person’s desire for more possessions. As the moon disappears and renews itself in the highly aesthetic sign of Libra, many will have the opposite desire: to start new in creating a beautiful environment by getting rid of unnecessary things that clutter […]

Horoscope, Friday, September 27, 2013

Fickle Venus What happens smack in between yesterday’s trine of Venus and Jupiter and tomorrow’s square between Venus and Mars is a lot of “she loves me, she loves me not.” Libra’s dominance over the sun gives another push to the back and forth pendulum of fickle romance. Just remember that whichever way it swings, […]

Horoscope, Friday, September 20, 2013

Full Moon After Party In this split-screen society, people feel like they must always be doing something, if not 10 things. Only the bold and strong have what it takes to be idle. The wise know the benefits of doing nothing, even if it’s not something they can articulate. The power of nothing is beyond […]

Horoscope, Friday, September 13, 2013

Friday the 13th and Jesse James Folk hero Jesse James was regarded as an American Robin Hood. Though he was a thief and a murderer, the average citizen was so disgusted with the greed of banks and railroads that the killer who shot James was vilified while James was widely mourned. On this Friday the […]

Horoscope, Friday, September 6, 2013

Moon Changes Suit Getting your act together is the theme of the Virgo moon, and she’s a supportive cheerleader for your cause while gracing this helpful, healthful part of the sky. Then she glides into Libra, and the day becomes less centered on “I” and more to do with “you.” Those who think of others […]

Horoscope, Friday, August 30, 2013

Cancer Moon Break This week already has brought us a Grand Cross, a close encounter with Neptune, a fiery sign change for Mars and a quincunx. That’s why today’s gift is such a pleasure: the gift of feeling right at home. The moon moves into Cancer, the sign of domesticity, issuing an invitation to take […]

Horoscope, Friday, August 23, 2013

Mercury Hops On Home Following the sun, Mercury, the fleet-footed messenger of the gods, hops on home to Virgo. The transits bode well for savvy solutions and workable plans. Tenacity and diligence are Virgo’s prized ethics. Albert Einstein, whose natal Uranus was in Virgo, modestly claimed: “It’s not that I’m so smart; it’s just that […]

Horoscope, Friday, August 2, 2013

Gemini Moon Wants Information People fear what they don’t understand — understanding more equals fearing less. The problem occurs when bad people use their intelligence to gain power. They make others feel needlessly afraid by keeping them in a misinformed or uninformed state. The Gemini moon encourages open conversation to prevent such evil from spreading. […]
