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. The good news (especially for those prone to neurosis) is that fearlessness will take hold. The […]

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.

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.

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. The stressed angle of Mars to Venus has us similarly mentally taxed, trying to fill in what we […]

Horoscope, Sunday, September, 15, 2013

Aquarius Moon Lightens the Day Inner chaos creates outer chaos, and vice versa. But which comes first?

Horoscope, Thursday, September 27, 2012

The complications of love will be a theme now, as Venus and Mars are not pleased with each other. The Pisces moon exacerbates the arrangement, as she’s overly sensitive to what’s said and is prone to dwell on the slightest micro-expression of disfavor. The best you can do is take a deep breath and resolve […]

Horoscope, Tuesday, September 25, 2012

It was on this day in the year 1690 that the first multipage newspaper was published in the Americas.

The Aquarius moon reminds us to participate in the privileges that make […]

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. Not all of the manmade physical world is acceptable to you, and today you may find yourself starting to form a different opinion […]

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

The Virgo moon has been accused of being overly critical, but she argues tonight that her criticism is precisely what keeps standards high and people striving to uphold them.

Horoscope, Wednesday, August 5, 2015

Cosmically Caught In Between Torn between two lovers? Stuck in the middle (with you)?

To release the quicksand effect, relax into a […]

Horoscope, Sunday, August 2, 2015

Horoscopes, Tuesday, July 28, 2015

Moon of Greener Grass There is no one standard of success that applies to all people. The people who wonder why “so-and-so” hasn’t “made it big” are frustrated in their own lives.

Horoscopes, Monday, July 27, 2015

Narcissism in the Fire-Sign Sky As for the people who seem to be in love with themselves, there’s something oddly attractive about them at first.

Horoscope, Monday, June 15, 2015

Saturn in Scorpio Just because you don’t know what to do (or where you are, or where to go, or who to know, or what to ask, or which way to turn) doesn’t mean you’re lost. It might mean you’re supposed to hang on tight for the moment. Saturn’s journey through Scorpio will bring to […]

Horoscope, Saturday, June 13, 2015

Hungry Moon This Taurus moon is a hungry moon. She wakes us up, not only to the grumble in our stomach, but to the void in our self-esteem or the gnawing need in our heart. Sometimes she mistakenly thinks a shiny new possession will fix the problem. And other times she tries to fix everything […]

Outside with Charlie: Enjoy it now

Last week’s rainstorms did a pretty good job of soaking the forest and adding a bit of run-off to the rivers and streams coursing through the mountains and foothills.
