Horoscope, Thursday, July 30, 2015

To Free or Not To Free? The line between good business practice and generosity gets blurred with the moon’s crossing from ambitious Capricorn into philanthropic Aquarius. Free is an attractive price, but often it attracts way too many and too random a customer. That’s why it’s wise to put a different price on what you […]

Horoscope, Thursday, July 9, 2015

The Moon and the Nature of Beauty John Keats said, “A thing of beauty is a joy forever,” and yet the very nature of beauty is temporal. It goes through ugly stages to get there, is there for a moment and then it fades. What’s really everlasting is not the “thing” itself, but the moment […]

Horoscope, Thursday, July 2, 2015

Full-Moon Aftermath There are things that cross your mind that you wish wouldn’t have. It’s not all in your control. Just because you think it doesn’t mean it’s right or that you should believe it. In the aftermath of the full moon, test your thoughts. Take them to inquiry. Intellectual exploration may just lead you […]

Horoscope, Thursday, June 25, 2015

Balanced Moon The balanced Libra moon helps us get our footing with the recent Mars change. The key is not taking anything personally. It’s liberating. When you don’t take things personally, you never have to worry about why a person isn’t calling you back or ponder how you should take a strange comment. What others […]

Horoscope, Thursday, June 18, 2015

Intuition Moon The old world had more gatekeepers and quality-control managers. The new world can’t afford them and doesn’t need them. As a result, each individual is charged with taking control, keeping track and making decisions based on personal values and taste. The Cancer moon encourages everyone along this path, emphasizing the role of intuition. […]

Horoscope, Thursday, June 11, 2015

Mercury Goes Direct Mercury decides to straighten out, at least from our point of view, in the realm he’s most comfortable in, and that’s Gemini. Need to have a conversation? Have it now. The people who should hear you will be all ears. Your words, no matter how you planned it, will be eloquent. It’s […]

Horoscope, Thursday, June 4, 2015

Greedy Moon There are a lot of greedy people in the world, and the ambitious Capricorn moon has us struggling to keep ourselves out of the category. This is the moon of more and better, but it’s also the moon of responsibility. Where do you draw the line between need and want? How do you […]

Horoscope, Thursday, May 28, 2015

Libra Moon Match The Libra moon is sponsoring a match: Happiness vs. Fun. Fun is in one corner, promising you easy laughs and immediate pleasure. Happiness rallies from the other side of the ring looking not nearly as flashy and offering little more than meaningful responsibilities to shoulder. Not so glamorous, perhaps, but something to […]

Horoscope, Thursday, May 21, 2015

Gemini Sun Summer is not officially here, but it’s here in spirit as the sun crosses into Gemini. This is the solar station of making new connections, having new experiences and talking yourself into being the person you want to be. It never happens alone. Branch out, hold your friends close, and make the acquaintance […]

Horoscope, Thursday, May 14, 2015

Mars and Saturn in Opposition The conflict between desire and responsibility is an age-old struggle that to some degree affects us every day, though the current Mars and Saturn opposition makes it seem more pronounced. The right thing to do is often not the easiest or most appealing course of action, and yet it’s the […]

Horoscope, Thursday, May 7, 2015

Venus Change Cancer, the first water sign of the zodiac, is an emotional force like the sea from which the crabs emerge, big surf breaking in loud and soft sounds, all at once relaxing and terrifying. Venus leaves the friendly conversation of Gemini today for Cancer’s promise of deeper levels of intimacy. ARIES (March 21-April […]

Horoscope, Thursday, April 30, 2015

Mercury Enters Gemini We experience millions upon millions of words in our lifetimes, and most of them, though right for the moment, are soon forgotten. Mercury’s entrance into the loquacious sign of Gemini today begins many weeks of steady, fluent, abundant communication. Those who want to be memorable would be wise to do more than […]

Horoscope, Thursday, April 23, 2015

Mercury, Mars and Money Will Smith said, “Too many people spend money they haven’t earned to buy things they don’t want to impress people they don’t like.” The sun, Mercury and Mars in financially oriented Taurus have been taking turns angling heavy hitters like Jupiter and Pluto, activating all kinds of feelings, plans and schemes […]

Horoscope, Thursday, April 16, 2015

Pluto Retrograde When the journey gets tough, you anticipate great happiness upon arriving at your destination, and that anticipation almost always pays off … in movies. Don’t be surprised if it doesn’t quite pay off as dramatically in real life. Instead of a big hallelujah moment, arrival may bring lasting quiet satisfaction. Message brought to […]

Horoscope, Thursday, April 9, 2015

Lunar Investigation Yesterday Mercury and Uranus aligned in an explosive conjunction, and Jupiter made an about-face taking our luck in a new direction. Today the Sagittarius moon says, “So, what now?” and then launches into an investigative journey. There are options available today that didn’t exist earlier in the week, and searching for them will […]

Horoscope, Thursday, April 2, 2015

Double Trine, Double Luck Two planetary arrangements pave the way for the actions that will produce good fortune. First, Mercury in Aries forms an auspicious trine with Saturn in Sagittarius. It’s the spark that ignites the engine. This could come in the form of an introduction, a phone call or a discovery. The fiery sun […]

Horoscope, Thursday, March 26, 2015

Venus in Taurus Check-In Venus exploring the early part of Taurus tunes us in to the many ways we can fill our experience with beautiful sights, sounds, tastes, smells and physical feelings. This sensual passage also has a way of making us think that these pleasures are worth whatever amount money is being asked for […]

Horoscope, Thursday, March 19, 2015

New Moon Prep Tomorrow the sky has “Fresh Start” written in large sparkling letters across it, as the total solar eclipse, the new moon and the spring equinox will occur over the course of the day. Consider this prep time. As in all preparations, think about your ideal end result (which in this case is […]

Horoscope, Thursday, March 12, 2015

Mercury’s Remote Control When people change the subject, it can seem random, but it’s usually for a good reason. The universe is the same. Mercury’s shift from Aquarius to Pisces will be like changing the channel from the news to a Ted Talk. Don’t let the new programming throw you. You’ll still learn from it. […]

Horoscope, Thursday, March 5, 2015

Clean, Green Full Moon A higher-minded perspective allows us to observe the battle between the selfish bipeds and the rest. We think we’re better, but our use of plastic bags and water bottles doesn’t just hurt the other creatures of the world. If we create extinction, we go on the list, too. This message was […]

Horoscope, Thursday, February 26, 2015

Image Conscious Moon All world leaders have a headquarters where their (slightly better looking) image is displayed in statue or painting to let everyone know how important they are. Even if you’re only the leader of your desk, social media page or other relatively limited domain, the Gemini moon of communication suggests you carefully consider […]

Horoscope, Thursday, February 19, 2015

Happy Chinese New Year! The year of the sheep comes with controversy, but Mercury exiting its storm and Mars returning to its home base of Aries bodes well for this year. The main issues that some have with the year of the sheep is that sheep can be passive. Peacefulness should not be confused with […]

Horoscope, Thursday, February 12, 2015

Cosmic Synaesthesia People who have synaesthesia experience a blending of their senses. They may experience a taste when hearing a sound, or hear a sound when they are receiving visual information. Today represents a kind of cosmic synaesthesia, as the Sagittarius moon has us craving new blends of sensation. Get out and experience the world! […]

Horoscope, Thursday, February 5, 2015

Moon of Critical Thought The Virgo moon favors an intellectually disciplined process of gathering, analyzing and applying information. Clarity, accuracy and relevance matter. So does fairness. If there’s a problem you haven’t been able to solve by feeling your way through, now is the time to flip to the logical part of you. Bonus: There’s […]

Horoscope, Thursday, January 29, 2015

Gemini Moon Confidence Trick How much control anyone really has over the environment is debatable, but one thing is for sure under the sociable Gemini Moon — confidence matters. Believing you have control over your environment makes you communicate with more confidence and in turn that confident air gives you a greater degree of influence. […]

Horoscope, Thursday, January 22, 2015

Spirit Moon The Pisces moon enhances our experience with spiritual awareness. It’s not something that has to be talked about to be known. A feeling of connectivity is more profound than what any person on earth could point out. You know who your people are. They are all the people, yet some more than others. […]

Horoscope, Thursday, January 15, 2015

Notes from Mars and Saturn Mars and Saturn will highlight the difference between people who are good for you and people who aren’t. The people who are good for you bring out your best and highest. You feel better and lighter around them. They won’t put you in an agitated mood with complaints and bad […]

Horoscope, Thursday, January 8, 2015

Detail Moon Most of the work will get done in a sudden wave of late afternoon productivity after the moon leaves ostentatious Leo for reasonable Virgo. The small details will matter disproportionately. One way to show you care is to tend to the minor details of a personal interaction as though they were extremely important. […]

Final Main Street Matters meeting Thursday

By Matthew C. Boyer & Associates The city of Placerville is holding the third, and last, community meeting before finalizing its plans for the rehabilitation of historic Main Street, including the replacement of some underground water lines and the lining of a portion the underground sewer line. The project is planned to include Main Street, from […]

Horoscope, Thursday, January 1, 2015

Welcome to 2015 An opposition of Mars and Jupiter creates a fascinating tension. There’s a fair amount of personal doubt that comes with Jupiter’s retrograde, and Mars in Aquarius will push those buttons from a philosophical standpoint, asking, “What do you really deserve out of life?” A better question may be, “What would you wish […]

Horoscope, Thursday, December 25, 2014

Merry Christmas The excitement of the season is upon us. Astrologically, we are coming off of a new moon in Capricorn and a reversal of Uranus. The Aquarius moon leads us into the spirit of giving. For all who find themselves in a fortunate position, there are so many others who don’t. Look around. It […]

Horoscope, Thursday, December 18, 2014

Solar/Lunar Intensity As civilized and well mannered as you may be, the fact remains that if you are reading this, you’re probably that soft, warm-blooded, highly adaptable and sharply instinctive animal called “human.” The wild Sagittarius sun and the intense Scorpio moon machinate with unexpectedly emotional results. Chalk it up to human nature. ARIES (March […]

Horoscope, Thursday, December 11, 2014

Lunar Exaggeration The Leo moon playfully nudges the sun, Mercury and Jupiter in her orbit. This lunar persuasion isn’t known for factual honesty or logical action. In fact, the Leo moon has been known to exaggerate for effect, deceive for drama and create mischief just for the fun of it. For maximum enjoyment, keep your […]

Horoscope, Thursday, December 4, 2014

Mars Turns Hippie As Mars leaves the goal- and status-oriented realm of Capricorn for the neighboring realm of Aquarius, the warrior planet is like a corporate manager who suddenly decides to burn his suit to don tie-dyed hippie apparel. Mars in Aquarius asks: What if you didn’t worry about the outcome and instead focused solely […]

Horoscope, Thursday, November 27, 2014

Thanksgiving Moon Thanksgiving owes much of its context to the months that occurred before that autumn meal, months that the pilgrims spent tossing the stormy sea to come to a strange land that they were not prepared to survive. Under the Aquarius moon, we’re reminded that this holiday is as much about mercy and compassion […]

Horoscope, Thursday, November 20, 2014

Venus and Neptune Aid Smokeout The American Cancer Society declares today the Great American Smokeout. Venus and Neptune square off to uncover the emotional roots of our actions, which could bring about insights regarding our various habits and coping mechanisms. Tonight the moon shifts into Scorpio, touching our dreams with psychic sight. ARIES (March 21-April […]

Horoscope, Thursday, November 13, 2014

Leo Lunar Fun The entertaining Leo Moon mixes it up with Mercury in the wee hours of the morning, putting a theatrical spin on the dreamland show. Later a lunar trine with Uranus will provide a party-popper-like surprise. The Sun and Jupiter square off in the evening giving the illusion that what we want is […]

Horoscope, Thursday, November 6, 2014

Appetite Moon The full moon in Taurus is a passion-swelling lunar experience. Navigating our appetites will take maturity beyond what some can muster. What we want, we want so vehemently it’s as though we were born to want it. However, try to keep in mind that under the sobering reality of tomorrow’s light, things won’t […]

Horoscope, Thursday, October 30, 2014

Lunar Comedy The usual levity of the airy Aquarius moon will be interrupted by shadowy interactions, first by the sun in Scorpio and then by Venus in Scorpio. This may turn the friendly good-natured humor of Aquarius into dark comedy. Those who appreciate satire won’t mind this change in tone at all and could even […]

Horoscope, Thursday, October 23, 2014

Eclipse, New Moon and More It’s a dramatic entrance into the time of Scorpio. As the sign of transformation, Scorpio lives up to the reputation, shifting the astrological landscape all at once — seldom is one day so cosmically eventful. There’s a partial solar eclipse, a new moon, a sign change for the sun and […]

Horoscope, Thursday, October 16, 2014

Storytelling Moon The Cancer moon encouraged such an outpouring of feeling that some will feel slightly drained and drawn to the sort of practical tasks that don’t require emotional investment. For those who care to recount the details of the past few days, the Leo moon favors the storytellers, embellishments encouraged.  ARIES (March 21-April 19). […]

Horoscope, Thursday, October 9, 2014

Astral Break Time  Sandwiched between yesterday’s supercharged full warrior moon and tomorrow’s entrance of Mercury retrograde into Libra, this is the moment to catch your breath, get a drink, shake and stretch it all out before going for the next mile. Don’t miss the break, or you’ll get tired tomorrow when it’s time to dig […]

Horoscope, Thursday, October 2, 2014

Mercury Retrograde Countdown Mercury goes retrograde on Saturday, so this is the time to take advantage of his straight-shooting status. The practical Capricorn moon is rooting for you to say the piece of truth that will put your situation in a productive mode. Venus in Libra helps you do so with social grace and diplomacy.  […]

Horoscope, Thursday, September 25, 2014

Jupiter and Uranus Do Standup Jupiter and Uranus form a lucky alignment for humor lovers everywhere. It’s like a cosmic standup comedy show, and we can all benefit from visiting the lighter side of life. It will be easier to see how most of our problems are not unique to us. In fact, so much […]

Horoscope, Thursday, September 18, 2014

Cancer Moon Homework  The Cancer moon suggests taking a look around your home environment and giving thanks for the many blessings that spring from that place. They won’t be easy to see under this water-sign moon — much in the way that water can be taken for granted by fish — but try! You’ll be […]
