Lullaby Moon It’s been a week of tension and unpredictable excitement. Now Mercury in grounded Taurus and an empathetic Pisces moon will try to mellow out the atmosphere lullaby-style. When the psychic winds kick up, try not to see them as inconvenient agitators, but as benevolent forces sent to gently rock us. ARIES (March 21-April […]

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 […]

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.

The Sun and Pluto Fight Over Fate The sun in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn argue over our notions of fate. The sun insists that fate is largely a matter of self-determination, while Pluto makes a sound case for the influence of mysterious, unseen forces. Whatever your beliefs, it’s a time to work with everything […]

Split-Toned Moon A friendly Aquarius moon rules the day, and an introspective Pisces moon takes over the evening, and so two distinctly different moods prevail. What seems like a good idea early on may, a few hours later, seem childish, impractical or even outright ridiculous. There’s no need to make a hasty final judgment — […]

Vernal Equinox Happy vernal equinox! This is one of two days in the entire year in which the sun and the moon share the day equally. In other words, day and night are equal lengths, and by extension, there is a feeling of balance in all things. Many will find just what yins their yang […]

Sun, Saturn and the Wilds of Civilization It is only natural to feel like a scared animal when faced with totally unfamiliar circumstances.

Truth Serum Moon A group of too many “yes” people won’t be as effective as a diverse group of problem solvers. Of course, to solve problems, we must first acknowledge that they exist.  That won’t be a problem under this truth serum of a Scorpio moon. But being too direct under these skies is likely […]

Horoscope, Thursday, February 13, 2014

Worldview Review Some say acceptance is the road to heaven, and so there is no point in imagining things to be other than they are. Others get through life by imagining. Still others change the world by imagining. There is no wrong opinion on the matter. But whatever you believe, you’ll be asked to defend […]

Horoscope, Thursday, January 16, 2014

Post Full Moon The excitement of yesterday’s full moon now wanes as the lunar torch passes from Cancer to Leo. There are still hot spots in the emotional soup.

Horoscope, Thursday, January 2, 2014

Sun Squares Mars and Uranus While the sun is at a tense angle to Mars and Uranus, you can avoid negative consequences simply by being tolerant.

Horoscope, Thursday, December 26, 2013

Balancing Moon Attention is a kind of payment. How much focus are you giving to something you don’t even want? The Libra moon reminds us that value is not intrinsic.

Horoscope, Thursday, December 19, 2013

Mercury in Sagittarius As Mercury in Sagittarius opens our eyes to all of the ways we might expand our lives, it’s easy to become overwhelmed. Big projects are just a bunch of small tasks stacked on top of one another. Break it down. In order to understand the scope of a project, see how long […]

Horoscope, Thursday, November 28, 2013

Harmony Moon The Libra moon casts the spirit of harmony over the day, which bodes well for coming together peacefully and purposefully.

Horoscope, Thursday, November 14, 2013

Venus Squares Uranus Contrary to what we learn in the movies, romantic love isn’t for everyone. There are those who place a higher value elsewhere: spiritual development, artistic mastery, the attainment of wealth and other life purposes. Venus in Capricorn squared off with Uranus in Aries challenges us to honor those with a different life […]

Horoscope, Thursday, November 7, 2013

Jupiter Goes Retrograde Jovial Jupiter, the planet of abundance, good fortune and largesse, does an about-face to inspire us toward introspection. Mercury is still retrograde, too, though much crankier about it than Jupiter will be. Jupiter’s optimism makes him immune to the ill effects of a retrograde. In Cancer, Jupiter will have us thinking deeply […]

Horoscope, Thursday, October 31, 2013

Horoscope, Thursday, October 10, 2013

Venus and Neptune Argue Just because Neptune is considered the higher octave of Venus doesn’t mean the two planets always get along. When they form a stressful angle, as they do today, people have a tendency to choose inconvenient and impractical romantic partners. This can be good for fantasy life, but bad for reality. ARIES […]

Horoscope, Thursday, October 3, 2013

New Moon Eve Ambition is a double-edged sword. If an ambition is too lofty, it can actually demotivate those who don’t believe at the deepest level that success is possible. And yet, this eve of the new moon will fortify a strong belief. Right now it will be better to aim high and fail than […]

Horoscope, Thursday, September 26, 2013

Libra Sun of Sharing The early days of the Libra solar return remind us that determining social order is tricky business. The one who appears to be winning the attention of everyone in the room may in the end be the loser. When there’s too much of one person in a room, resentment builds as […]

Horoscope, Thursday, September 12, 2013

Quincunx Quandary When two planets are at a 150-degree angle, it’s noted in the astrological calendar with a mark resembling the silhouette of an end table, or a tipped-over letter “K.” The aspect is called a “quincunx,” and it’s not exactly a signal of fun times, unless you consider character-building fun. Today’s quincunx involves Mercury […]

Venus Enters Leo Be careful how you wield your affections. Someone could accidentally fall in love with you!
