Tension Between the Capricorn Moon and Venus As the Capricorn moon squares off with Venus in the sign of relationships, the ego is like a fobbed watch that hypnotizes us into thinking that other people are the problem. Other people are never the problem. Other people are there to help us work on the problem, […]

Horoscope, Saturday, November 14, 2015

Relationships and the Practical Moon Relationships have purposes in our lives and take their natural courses in service of those purposes. Some are rather short. Some are lengthy but they end, and that ending doesn’t mean the entire experience was a waste of time. What was learned? What remains? The Capricorn moon encourages a practical […]

Venus Calls Show Time There is something to the things you want to say but don’t. Sometimes it shows a desire to live peacefully with others. Sometimes it shows fear, good taste or proper etiquette. Sometimes it backfires. You may feel differently about what you keep to yourself as Venus ends a retrograde in outspoken […]

Gemini Moon of Communication The Gemini moon amps up communication in the sweetest way. It’s the soft messages that land with the most force. Life is finite and fragile.

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 […]

Horoscope, Friday, June 12, 2015

Neptune Retrograde Neptune in the dreamy realm of Pisces decides to make our dreams that much more out of reach by turning retrograde. A dream out of reach isn’t necessarily a bad thing, though.

Creative Leo Moon Sometimes while playing around in our own imaginations, things get intense. Where are the thoughts coming from? Were they in there all along waiting to be uncovered, or are they drifting in from outside of our minds? Regardless, the creative Leo moon wants us to remember that we can always choose what […]

Horoscope, Saturday, March 28, 2015

Venus and Jupiter Strife There’s still tension in the air thanks to yesterday’s squared angle of Venus and Jupiter, but don’t let that get you down. Tension is a powerful motivator. Without it, the violin wouldn’t sing and the romantic comedy would fall flat. Instead of avoiding conflict altogether, try this approach: detach, minimize and […]

Horoscope, Friday, March 27, 2015

Venus and Jupiter Conflict Wanting won’t be enough to make dreams come true. Being qualified, talented and even deserving won’t be enough, either, because life never agreed to play fair. As Venus in Taurus forms a terse angle to Jupiter in Leo, the best approach to take is living for the moment. Let action be […]

Horoscope, Sunday, March 15, 2015

Saturn Retrograde, Day Two Those with ultra-high self-esteem and those with very low self-esteem have something in common: They incessantly think of themselves.

Horoscope, Saturday, March 14, 2015

Saturn Retrograde Saturn goes retrograde and will continue this way until August. This change will not be as noticeable as the retrogrades of other planets and may even be experienced as a relief. Retrogrades tend to turn energy inward. Saturn retrogrades inspire people to work out their problems privately, which, for most, is the preferred […]

Horoscope, Friday, March 13, 2015

Pisces Sun Empathy Check Aristotle observed that reality looks different when experienced through various emotions.

Horoscope, Sunday, February 1, 2015

Venus Conjunct Neptune Romantic Venus and dreamy Neptune connect in unpredictable Pisces to mixed results. Some will be fooled by their own expectations of what love should be, projecting onto potential mates an idealized personality that may have nothing to do with who the other person really is. Others will take a “wait and see” […]

Horoscope, Saturday, January 31, 2015

Social Stars for the Weekend Just as a sculptor understands that every material is different and will respond differently to weather, movement, weight and other factors, a “people person” understands that each individual is unique and must be worked with to be understood. The social Aquarius sun and intuitive Cancer moon aid the getting-to-know-you process. […]

Horoscope, Friday, January 30, 2015

Venus and Saturn Strife Venus has been in Pisces for three days and is already shaking up the romantic scene, issuing demands and causing doubt.
