Once you wake up from yesterday’s karmic onslaught, it is time to figure out who is the new you! Did Monday’s Uranus-Pluto square-off, plus the other potent alignments, shift year psychic gears into park, neutral or super-drive? Four more Uranus-Pluto 90-degree aspects will keep humanity on its proverbial toes until March 2015. Therefore, the spiritual process of shape-shifting into your higher self is more unfinished than complete. In the meantime, the universe gives you a 24-hour time-period to playfully enjoy the brand new Solar Gemini vibes — offering you a cornucopia of delights on the communication, literary and educational horizons. Amplifying this trend are flowing trines via the Moon in Libra to Mercury in Gemini (7:34AM PDT) and Venus in Gemini (12:25PM PDT). Keep up your valiant efforts to move ahead across the board, although the evening atmosphere is muddled due to a frictional, 45-degree aspect from Pallas to Uranus (9:41PM PDT) and a square from Mercury to Chiron (11:50PM PDT). While anxiety and stress may suddenly be rampant, you can still manage to tweak both sky patterns into bringing you divine and healing resources that allow intellect and intuition to blend their magic.

Your abrupt communication style might anger someone at work today, but don’t hold on to any negative feelings or your attitude could impede your progress. Your associates are willing to offer you the support you need, but you must meet them halfway. Your natural spontaneity works to your advantage because you’re acutely aware of the present moment.

(Apr 20 – May 20)

(May 21 – Jun 20)
Maintaining a positive attitude is crucial today, especially if someone misinterprets your behavior.

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Your ambivalence runs deep today if someone demands that you take sides in an open disagreement at work. It might be best to keep your opinion quiet since you understand both points of view. Ultimately, you’re acutely aware that you’re an observer and the conflict isn’t necessarily your problem. Even if you’re willing to lend a sympathetic ear, this distraction can adversely affect your productivity. Stand firm in your impartiality to allow others the chance to find a resolution on their own.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

An uncharacteristic emotional meltdown could clear the air of bad feelings today, allowing you to get back to business with a lighter heart. Fortunately, cooperating with others is easy when you care about the same issues.

Nevertheless, it’s wise to suspend your judgment for a while until you have all the facts at your disposal.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Your patience is wearing thin today, even if your intentions are honorable. You’re tired of the same old issues popping up again and again, even though you already processed them and moved on.

Being honest and expressing your frustration in a calm manner reduces the tension and strengthens a key relationship.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You may be known for your charming social ways, but you have to practice self-restraint now or your exuberant style could offend someone important. But rather than completely withdrawing, try toning your enthusiasm down just a touch. Keep in mind that exercising self-discipline doesn’t mean you have to remain silent … it’s about saying the right thing succinctly. It’s essential to know when to speak and when to stop talking. Being a good listener gives you the chance to see others in a different light.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Someone may send you mixed signals today, requesting your help and then suddenly asking you to back off. You might not have a clear preference about what comes next, but you’re dissatisfied with the uncertainty that comes along with a change of plans. Accept the lack of direction now with an open mind instead of wasting your energy chasing an elusive solution. There’s no need to push for clarification … if you’re not careful you could inadvertently open a can of worms that’s better left alone.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You’re standing at the edge of a major breakthrough today, but you may be juggling too many tasks to successfully follow up on any one of them.

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Your subconscious mind is sending you powerful messages now, yet they may stem from old fears rather than current events. The more time you put into analyzing your memories today, the more intense your feelings become. There’s nothing to be gained by feeding your negativity; instead of reminiscing about your past, focus all your attention on appreciating what’s happening in the present moment.
Complications arise this weekend as your passionate ruling planet Mars creates some intense aspects. While others are floating in the clouds of illusion, your passion is being pushed by powerful Pluto and your desire for freedom is provoked by restless Uranus.

Unplugging and connecting with nature this weekend gives you the chance to discover what your heart wants.

Friends and groups can be sources of fascinating inspiration and intriguing new connections this weekend. Friday night’s Lunar Eclipse lands in your 11th House of Teams, triggering strong feelings when you’re hanging out with pals or working in an organizational setting.

Slip away to create magic, even if only in your imagination.

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

(Apr 20 – May 20)

There’s a fine line between maintaining your integrity and just being stubborn. Don’t give up before making your point. However, let go of your need to convince everyone that your position is the only correct one. You have the power to rise above conflict by choosing your battles wisely.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
You are entering an emotionally intense period when you must learn something important about yourself. The information you receive today might rattle your previous assumptions.

Even if none of the alternatives appear one-hundred percent perfect, be as realistic as possible when making an important decision. Thankfully, you can always modify your course of action later on.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You can quickly see what’s wrong with someone’s big scheme today, which prevents you from investing too much time or money in an unrealistic project.

The truth of the matter is somewhere in the middle and it’s up to you to find a path of compromise that works for all parties involved.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
It isn’t always easy to hone right in on what you offer others, but thinking about your contributions may be a very interesting exercise for you. Meanwhile, applying your energy to a mundane task isn’t a waste of time if you practice self-reflection along the way. Something as uninspiring as paying your bills can be uplifting today … if you keep your mind focused on what’s real. Ultimately, others will appreciate your ability to make the most of the present moment.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You normally don’t like too many distractions, yet you’re still obsessed with gathering as many facts as you can now. Unfortunately, possessing an abundance of information isn’t as reassuring as having certainty. As much as you attempt to let your common sense reign supreme, your optimism can sorely tempt you to mislead others today. Use your natural discretion to prevent heading off course.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Knowing what to expect from a serious relationship makes the difference between a brilliant success and a discouraging failure.

Relationships will have a better chance to flourish if you don’t oversell your case.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Having a discussion about intimacy and actually being intimate with a loved one are not the same thing. It’s easier to approach this delicate subject from the point of view of an observer, even if you are confident enough to jump right into the fire now. Remember that the right amount of detachment can help you deal with your feelings much more effectively than letting yourself be overwhelmed by them.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Although you’re often better at describing a general concept than zooming in on the individual facts, today’s Virgo Moon enables you to separate the fine points from the big ideas. Meanwhile, a rugged Venus-Pluto alignment makes it tricky to gauge how much resistance you might need to exert in order to get what you want. Move slowly and reconsider all your options prior to making any critical decisions.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You may be charmed by someone who behaves in a flirtatious manner toward you now. Unfortunately, other people’s words can be confusing and could lead you down a dangerous path if you fail to sort through all the incoming information.

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You might feel like you’re riding a creative streak, but you’re still struggling with putting your best ideas into concrete action. Unfortunately, you could give up prematurely today if you aim your sights too high and set yourself up for frustration. However, if you don’t establish any goals at all, you may miss your chance to demonstrate your talents when doing extraordinary work. Quit thinking so much and just let your imagination flow.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Your closest friends may ask for your undivided attention now. Ironically, their encouragement is also just what you need to support your current growth. However, you might have such unrealistic expectations that everyone falls short of their goals and lets you down today. Still, it’s crucial to appreciate what you have … you cannot afford to waste any energy on negativity. There’s no need to expect miracles; shining your light is enough to save the day.
Sometimes what the expansive universe conceives of as fun-and-games doesn’t feel that way to human souls having all sorts of trials and tribulations down here on Planet Earth. The cosmic shenanigans of the last few days — including now two long stretches of void lunar activity, plus the dark-of-the-moon shadow time on Wednesday and Thursday, as well as lunar connections to the often rash, red planet Mars — can grate on anyone’s nerves. Nonetheless, the Taurus New Moon from yesterday is eagerly awaiting its chance to show you what wonders it can create. That must wait until 2:22PM PDT today when the void lunar cycle in Taurus shifts gears into lively, curious Gemini. Just before this takes place, the Sun merges its radiance with Pallas at 21 degrees of Taurus (1:40PM PDT) — providing a notable beacon of light, knowledge and wisdom that you can utilize during the several hours after the Moon enters Gemini at 2:22PM PDT. In addition, with Pallas super-strong right now, playing the amateur detective role makes total sense as your problem-solving skills are at white-hot capacity. Find time to enjoy board, card or word games with pals or the family. The love boat sails into exotic ports of call — courtesy of the monthly Moon-Venus union in Gemini (5:50PM PDT). Even though this rendezvous of the Moon and beautiful Venus occurs at this specific moment, its warm and creative artistic expression can last for many hours. If you are not currently in a primary relationship, utilize this alliance to stir your interest in reading, writing, calligraphy, poetry, and advanced literary explorations.
You’re all charged up and ready for a fresh start, motivated by the evocative Moon traveling through your spontaneous sign early in the week. Some intense conversations may be needed to clear the air, but if that’s what it takes to finally put the past behind you, it’s worth it. Making new connections come easily this weekend as a flirtatious mood allows you to talk to just about anyone. Exercising flexibility is essential because your ability to quickly change your plans or attitude can invite more love into your life.
The Taurus New Moon on Thursday is a Solar Eclipse, signaling the need for personal reflection and reassessment of what you want in your relationships. You may be stuck with outmoded beliefs that feel totally real but are keeping you from fulfilling your true potential. Being vulnerable without acting like a victim exposes your tender side and makes you a more desirable companion. The winds shift direction and you can only control how you respond to the change. The key to connecting this weekend, considering the Moon is skipping through easy-breezy Gemini, is to take yourself less seriously.
The Moon’s move into your playful sign on Friday afternoon could set you up for a delightful weekend. A nighttime lunar conjunction with flirty Venus is a cause for celebration.

Speak from your heart and let love do the rest.
You might prefer some quiet time this weekend with the Moon occupying your 12th House of Privacy. Staying away from crowds makes sense as it provides you with the peace you need to be at ease. But this cosmic energy isn’t about being alone because the lunar transit in chatty Gemini is excellent for discussing delicate issues. You have the perspective needed to see things objectively and the skills to express yourself with exceptional clarity. Choose your companion wisely, summon your courage and sit down for a heart-to-heart talk.
Thursday’s Solar Eclipse lands in your 10th House of Public Responsibility, which can weigh you down with more obligations than usual. If you want to have time for a social life, avoid taking on any additional duties if at all possible. Friends and groups are sources of pleasure this weekend with the Moon hanging out in your 11th House of Teamwork. Volunteering for a cause is a great way to strengthen your current relationship or connect with someone new. Whatever you do, get out and be seen to make the most of this cosmic moment.
You may have an overload of obligations this weekend with the busy Gemini Moon highlighting your 10th House of Responsibilities. Learning to juggle tasks graciously demonstrates how reasonable you can be while still taking care of business in an efficient manner. But you will have more fun if you allow yourself to be playful and maybe even a little bit silly with this flirty lunar transit. Plans may change in an instant and exercising flexibility will make you a more captivating partner. A Sun-Mercury alignment on Saturday empowers you to express your intentions at just the right moment to receive the best reception.
Hit the road this weekend to put more spice in your relationship life. The Moon is traveling in curious Gemini and your 9th House of Adventure where getting out of the old neighborhood opens your mind as well as your heart. Meeting someone at an educational event is another excellent way to expand your emotional horizons. You shine now when you’re in unfamiliar places and can demonstrate the charm and grace that make you such an alluring companion.
The Solar Eclipse may rock your world this week as you find yourself reconsidering your commitment to a current relationship or re-evaluating what you want in a new one. Thursday’s Taurus New Moon occurs in your 7th House of Partners, provoking a significant reassessment of your needs and desires. Clinging to a person or principle that doesn’t match your current emotional requirements will not necessarily resolve the issue. Resistance is futile; contemplating major change is appropriate now.
Casual conversations can make your weekend extremely memorable. The curious Gemini Moon’s presence in your 7th House of Relationships stimulates playful chats with your partner and even silly encounters with total strangers. Flirting is on the agenda, so don’t be shy about making eye contact when you’re out and about and seeing where that energy goes. Talking about almost anything may be all it takes to lead to a more meaningful connection.
It’s out with the old and in with new when it comes to romance this week. Thursday’s Taurus New Moon lands in your 5th House of Amour, but it’s also a Solar Eclipse. This cosmic catalyst indicates a need to break your patterns, let go of your pride and reconsider where and how you want to experience love. The question is whether you’re willing to settle for just getting by or whether you want to fight harder for more fulfilling relationships. Opening your heart may not be as easy as it sounds, but ultimately it brings the most joy.
Clear your schedule of obligations so that you have time to play all weekend long. The Moon dances into friendly Gemini and your 5th House of Romance on Friday afternoon to add fun and romance to your love life. A lunar conjunction with flirtatious Venus can make Friday night a pure delight. Just don’t take yourself too seriously if you want to catch this joyous wave of love. Adopting a creative approach and a carefree attitude now will take you much further in the game of love.
Your home could be the best place to play this weekend since the flirty Gemini Moon moves into your 4th House of Roots on Friday afternoon. However, long-term commitments are not on the agenda. In fact, this lunar transit in adaptable Gemini doesn’t even require advanced planning to create a social success. A last-minute potluck dinner with friends or inviting someone special over for a casual evening is all that it takes to be happy now. Pick only the most spontaneous of companions, as the freedom to change your mind in a moment’s notice is a must.
A Token for Expelling Negativity
To make a portable tool for expelling negativity, begin by dabbing your pulse points and Chakras with a mixture of powdered cloves and lemon oil. This opens the avenue for spiritual purification. Next, take a small; square black cloth and a slightly larger white cloth. Hold the black cloth with both hands. Visualize the habit you are trying to banish as black sludge coming out of your pores and being absorbed by the cloth. Once you feel the negativity has been discharged, take the white cloth in hand saying six times,
“This is the light of protection, of purity.
As it covers the darkness, so it brings safety to me.”
As you speak these words, imagine a blinding white light pouring into the cloth. Lay out the black swatch, place some pine needles and frankincense bits on it, and then put the white one over it. Carefully bundle the two together so that no portion of the black can be seen. Carry the token with you to expel negativity wherever you are.
General Uses Expelling negative energies or spirits. Turning malevolent magic. Ridding oneself of obsessions, addictions, and phobias.
Time the light of day, specifically dawn. The months of January, July, and October when the moon is in Aries, Gemini, or Sagittarius during a blue moon on your birthday or dates with special meaning. Spinning Spells, Weaving Wonders
Take a look back at some of your accomplishments of the last 30 days as the Sun is concluding its stay in Aquarius while preparing to enter Pisces tomorrow morning. Have you joined forces with like-minded souls on group projects, community events, team sports and global initiatives close to your heart and philosophy of life? If not, you may want to remember these themes when Solar Aquarius comes around next year. In the meantime, troubles may be brewing during the First Quarter Sun-Moon Phase (energizing 30 degrees of Aquarius and Taurus at 12:32PM PST). There is a need to cut through problems on physical and emotional levels, and hurdle over obstacles to the best of your ability. Manage your business affairs with greater aplomb and finesse. However, the moment of the Last Quarter Phase (12:32PM PST) also starts a short void-of-course Moon cycle that lasts until 1:51PM PST. During this somewhat weakened lunar condition, Vesta makes an off-kilter, 150-degree link to Saturn (12:57PM PST). Say no to investment planning for the time-being. Once the Moon is safely located in airy Gemini (1:51PM PST), there is a renewed urge to read, write and enjoy lighthearted hobbies. Take a time-out for a whirlpool treatment, massage or hot-tub session as Mercury parallels Chiron (8:04PM PST). Healing forces regain their momentum throughout the evening.
