Horoscope, Monday, April 14, 2014

Pluto Retrograde While we might like to believe we are the primary engines in our lives, ignoring the influence of environmental factors and parenting would be a mistake. Pluto begins a retrograde journey through Capricorn that pulls our awareness to the authority figures that have shaped us. Being aware of their influence is the key […]

Horoscope, Monday, April 29, 2013

Sagittarian Lunar Whimsy Do you ever wonder whether your dream life is more real than it seems? The early morning void-of-course moon will produce some whimsical, far-fetched and yet remarkably convincing dreams. Write down your impressions, or they will be gone forever. The realism of the Capricorn lunar influence will take over soon enough. ARIES […]

Horoscope, Monday, April 22, 2013

Classroom of the Virgo Moon Like schoolchildren assessing the new teacher, the sun, Venus and Mars hang close together as they check out Saturn from across the sky. Will Saturn be a strict taskmaster or a fun and friendly adviser? In the classroom of the Virgo moon, the teacher will base his lessons and approach […]

Horoscope, Monday, April 15, 2013

Venus Enters Taurus Venus rushes to Taurus, one of the signs she rules, with all the enthusiasm of a warrior returning home from the battleground. While the passion of Venus in Aries is a thrill, the cycle that begins today has obvious and immediate benefits. What once couldn’t be settled without a fight can now […]

Horoscope, Monday, April 8, 2013

Moon Does Cosmic Yawning The primal instinct that bonds humans together may be summed up in the contagion of yawns. It’s something you might notice during the void-of-course lunar situation — a cosmic yawn that catches on, no problem. The moon may be darkening, but this only intensifies the lovely energy it radiates as it […]

Horoscope, Monday, April 1, 2013

Asteroid Spacecraft Back in February, the asteroid 2012 DA14 got 17,100 miles from Earth and, as scientists predicted, kept right on going. The omens now suggest that the large rock wasn’t an asteroid at all, but a spaceship in disguise doing a fly-by to get a better idea of the ideal landing spot for the […]

Horoscope, Monday, April 30, 2012

The waxing Leo moon goes void-of-course and takes our energy levels into the void, as well. Concentration may not be optimal, but consider that not every task is best approached with a laser focus. This moon is excellent for overlooking what’s not quite going right and relaxing into the warm, fuzzy feeling that it’s all […]

Horoscope, Monday, April 23, 2012

The Gemini moon is a charming chap, striking brilliant conversation and spicing it up with a pinch of wit and a dash of mischief. Caution: There may be an underlying tension between younger and older generations. Be careful not to exacerbate the issue by speaking in a manner that the other party might find irreverent […]

Horoscope, Monday, April 2, 2012

The Leo moon is an entertainer who follows the old vaudevillian three-part formula for showmanship: Tell them what you’re going to do, do it, and then tell them what you did. The morning brings promise, the afternoon delivers on it, and the night brings a delightful recap — hopefully followed by thunderous applause! ARIES (March […]

Horoscope, Sunday, April 20, 2014

Jupiter Opposes Pluto If you realize that you are pinning your happiness on something that you could possibly lose, don’t worry. You’re in cosmic accordance. The nature of beauty is that it’s fleeting. The nature of love is risk. As lucky Jupiter opposes intense Pluto, we are made vividly aware of life’s contrasts. Let this […]

Horoscope, Saturday, April 19, 2014

Solar Switch-Up The sun leaves Aries, the first-born sign of the zodiac associated with identity, youth and the warrior spirit, for a steadier section of sky. Taurus energy is associated with strength, stamina, long-term goals and material wealth. In the weeks to come, we will be concerned with quality over quantity and long-term over immediate […]

Horoscope, Thursday, April 17, 2014

Scorpio Moon of Motivation The wise Scorpio moon looks for a motive behind every action. It’s particularly helpful when examining your own motives, which are often hidden even to you. Start with your to-do list. For each item, ask: What is my motive here? If the answer is “guilt” or “obligation,” it’s safe to strike […]

Horoscope, Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Scorpio Moon Assessment Fresh off the shakeup of yesterday’s total lunar eclipse, the Scorpio moon assesses the new hierarchy. It is naive to think that any role is superior to another — each comes with unique pressures. Since the only position you can effectively work to your advantage is the one you’re in, fully embody […]

Horoscope, Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Full Moon and Total Lunar Eclipse It sometimes takes a moment of doubt or the fear of losing someone to help us understand what we have in another person. The point is cosmically illustrated in the moment the full moon in Libra disappears in a shadow. The total lunar eclipse helps us understand the opportunity […]

Horoscope, Saturday, April 12, 2014

Closer Moon In a sense, you are always going for what sales people call “the close.” When you smile and someone smiles back, that’s a kind of close. When your request is fulfilled, that’s a close. Breaking down the details of interaction is favored under this Virgo moon. It might help you to see 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 […]

Creative Leo Moon Just as the first rays of the sun show up in the sky before the sun rises over the horizon, there will be some preliminary mental tinkering that precedes a big idea.

Stay-cation Cancer Moon The Cancer moon insists on finding relaxation inside the safe confines of home, sweet home. If that is not a relaxing place, the day is likely to be dedicated to making it more so. What needs to change? The feng shui? Houseguests? The attitude of family members or habits of the pets? […]

Venus Enters Pisces The love goddess waves goodbye to friendly, philanthropic Aquarius and slips into soulful Pisces.

Relax into the sensation of frozen time and enjoy it for what it […]

Horoscope, Friday, April 4, 2014

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.
