Breezy Moon The Gemini moon rallies for levity. This is a fine day for taking things at surface value. Not everything needs the application of deep thought. Over-think and you’ll weave together disparate sections into a design as intricate as a spider web (which, besides being a home, is also a trap). Keep it breezy […]

Pluto Goes Direct The subconscious mind is always working, sorting, absorbing and creating, but our awareness of its workings ebbs and swells according to our readiness and need.

Horoscope, Saturday, September 13, 2014

Mars Sign Change  Mars yells, “Watch me now” as he sails into the adventurous, worldly realm of Sagittarius. This is a passionate place for the already hotheaded energy of the warrior planet, and it will surely inspire aggressive moves.

Horoscope, Thursday, September 4, 2014

Last Day of Venus in Leo Tomorrow will bring a change of heart — all the more reason to celebrate today’s heart and all the ways it leans, flies and dances.

Horoscope, Monday, December 23, 2013

Perfectionist Moon The Virgo moon is the Martha Stewart of lunar aspects, striving for perfection and committed to creating a beautiful high-value outcome by doing things the right way.

Horoscope, Saturday, September 28, 2013

Mars and Venus Quarrel Scientists have determined that overhearing a stranger’s cellphone call is more irritating than other kinds of background noise because our brains have to work to fill in the other side of the conversation.

Horoscope, Thursday, September 27, 2012

The complications of love will be a theme now, as Venus and Mars are not pleased with each other.

Horoscope, Saturday, September 22, 2012

A thought for the autumnal equinox: When you walk out of your front door, what you will observe is other people’s opinions of how the world should be in a tangible form.

Horoscope, Thursday, September 20, 2012

It’s said that in the non-Euclidean universe, parallel lines can sometimes meet or diverge. And in real-life relationships, a straight line isn’t always the shortest distance between two people, because people are far too complicated to define with logic. As Mercury squares Pluto, use all of your faculties, including empathy, to make a connection. ARIES […]

Horoscope, Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Horoscope, Thursday, September 6, 2012

People talk about the benefits of slowing down to “smell the roses,” but the events that actually cause such slow downs — traffic, long lines, missed connections, etc. — are often met with annoyance.

Horoscope, Monday, July 23, 3012

Horoscope, Wednesday, December 30, 2015

Venus Changes It Up People in the same room together at mealtime often eat the same thing. Who decides? Later they may watch a television program. Whose choice?

Horoscopes, Saturcay, November 28, 2015

Sun/Moon Quandary The Sagittarius sun has one idea about how to spend the hours — investigating foreign territory, taking in the world, expanding our minds — while the Cancer moon’s urgings are to stay home with all the creature comforts. Somewhere in the middle of those two prerogatives will be a lovely, balanced day. ARIES […]

Horoscope, Tuesday, November 24, 2015

Horoscope, Friday, October 9, 2015

Mercury Direct Something to think of as Venus transits Virgo, the sign of perfectionists: If you’re being honest, aren’t the people who are usually right just a little bit annoying, too? It’s not necessary to be right all the time or even often. General, widespread success often comes from being right but once. Mercury ends […]

Horoscope, Thursday, October 1, 2015

Lunar Oppositional Challenge People who are strong outside and inside have the potential to be great partners, teammates and friends to you.
