Celebrating Other Spirituality 365 Days A Year – Neptunalia


July 23



The Neptunalia venerates the divine God of the Sea, Neptune. Originally a freshwater God, Neptune acquired his maritime status when we was identified with the Greek Poseidon At Rome, there was a temple dedicated to Neptune in the circus cus Flaminius within the Campus Martius where his festivals were held on July 23 and December 1.

Neptune was one of only three Gods to whom a bull might be sacrificed (the others were Mars and Apollo). According to legend, he had a wife whose name was Salacia, Goddess of the salty sea and inland guardian of springs. It is believed that the Goddess Sulis, who is still worshiped at the sacred hot springs at Bath, may have been an aspect of Salacia.

Mighty Neptune, may it please,

Thee, the Rector of the Seas.

That my Barque may safely runne,

Through thy watrie-region;

And A Tunnie-fish shall be,

Offer’d up, with thanks to thee

—Robert Herrick, “To Neptune, Hesperides” (1648)

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, July 8th






Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, July 8th



Aries Horoscope

This is a good time for creative work or active down time, dear Aries! Your intuition is super powerful now with Mars, your ruler, connecting healthily with Neptune. If you are able to approach the day in a freeform way, all the better, as your hunches seem to be accurate and the best way to follow your instincts is to allow for some freedom of movement. You might want to work on domestic matters or long-term projects, and certainly you can feel inspired by a dream of the future on this level. Motivation to work hard for a more idyllic home life or future is strong today.



You can be feeling quite inspired about learning, your personal interests, or communications projects today, dear Taurus. Taking action or pursuing a dream can leave you feeling stronger and filled with purpose. Friends or networks can be inspiring as well, providing fuel for your motivation to reach out and connect or to pursue something you’re truly interested in. You could be feeling good about supporting others, particularly a sibling or friend/acquaintance, or feeling an intuitive bond or connection with someone. You are both enthusiastic and sensitive, and this endears you to others. Working with or supporting someone can be beneficial now.



Today is strong for all things practical, as you can quite effectively intuit your next move, dear Gemini, and lay the groundwork for important projects and endeavors. Energy is strong, but only if you feel inspired, which may very well be the case today! Channel your energies into something truly worth pursuing. You have an exceptional sense of what is truly valuable to you, and also of your own capabilities, making it a strong day for being drawn to things you may need and for unusual but fabulous ideas for your future. Money sense is good right now.



You’ll be communicating more directly in the coming weeks with Mercury now in your sign, dear Cancer, and others are bound to appreciate the candor, even if they are a little surprised, as you often prefer to keep observations to yourself. Today is strong for intuition, as well as artistic endeavors. Good energy is also with you for educational and travel pursuits. It’s an excellent time for sharing a dream or vision with someone. Your intuition is very active and accurate now, and connections to someone special can be quite passionate.



There can be benefits coming through private conversations, the learning of a secret, or through observation, dear Leo. You are noticing things that you may have overlooked on another day, and there can be a finding the last puzzle piece moment experienced now. While it may be premature to present your ideas now, you can certainly work hard on them and find new inspiration or motivation to further your work. It’s a good day for attraction and magnetism, although it’s on the quiet, private side, such as a yet-developed relationship or crush. Take special note of the visions and impressions you have now – fantasy and flights of fancy can be more than simple escape today.


Virgo Symbol/Glyph

Your physical drive and energy levels are high today, dear Virgo, and you have a strong desire (and ability) to take charge of your life. Instincts are working well, even if information is not completely available to you now. You might enjoy working by yourself rather than with others for the time being, so if you can set your own pace, take that opportunity. Today can be strong for friendships and partnerships, as a feeling of intuitive connection is likely. Slowing down today can actually help move you forward if it allows your intuition to kick in. Events that occur today can push you to deal with neglected areas of your life.


Libra Glyph-Symbol

Today is very strong for intuiting your current or next move, dear Libra, particularly related to work or health. You can have strong attractions today, and you may even feel quite enchanted with someone. You are tuning into the subtler side of your relationships and connections. Keep the connections with others alive today. There can be an interesting, supportive connection with a partner, and there can be a strongly intuitive rapport going on with others in one-on-one situations. There can also be support for your projects and work efforts now. The more creative your work today, the more productive you will be.


Scorpio Symbol Glyph

Mars in your solar ninth house these days is strong for natural energy and assertiveness, dear Scorpio, as people and circumstances are less likely to get in the way of pursuing your desires and interests. Mercury entering this same sector today adds even more ease. Today, Mars in healthy relationship with Neptune in your creative and romantic sector boosts your personal appeal, heightens feelings and passions, inspires an interest in a new topic or subject, and boosts your faith in general. People around you may be willing to offer you a helping hand, and attractions are strong yet pleasant. Your tastes are exotic, and your understanding of people and concepts is enhanced in delightful ways today.


Sagittarius Glyph Symbol

This may very well be a strong day for connecting on a deeper level with someone, dear Sagittarius. Imagination and fantasy figure strongly, but so does practicality. Emotions can be stirred now that demand some sort of action. Soon enough, you’re likely to discover what that is. You need to feel good about what you’re doing, or at the very least, a sense of purpose and higher meaning. You are seeing things beyond their surface, whether this is a person or situation. Activities that are behind the scenes or private can hold more appeal, and there can be more creative power to access today.


Capricorn Symbol/Glyph

Your ability to communicate in nonverbal ways or on an ethereal, subtle level is powerful today, dear Capricorn. As such, you have golden opportunities to enhance relationships or connect with others now. You are more interested in filling the needs and wants of other people today, and less inclined to focus on your own interests or pushing your own agenda. You may be contributing to a group effort or helping out a partner or friend today. Serving and supporting others may be deeply satisfying now. Imagination can be brought to your conversations and work.



Today is good for coming up with new ideas, particularly those along practical lines, Aquarius. It’s time for focusing on what truly matters to you. Finding new meaning in a project or endeavor is critical for your motivation levels now, and you’re very likely to find it today. Money-making ideas can be strong now. You are especially receptive to new ideas, and, perhaps more than anything, methods, as you want to take action and make changes. You’re not content to simply think about things. You need to add some color to your routines and imagination to your work. You might be interested in alternative healing methods.



You’ll quickly find that others around you can’t be prodded today, dear Pisces. There is a tendency to savor the moments, and this is something you can safely resign yourself to doing at some points today as well. In fact, it’s likely to be very beneficial. Today brings excellent energy for personal appeal and magnetism. You can be feeling strongly about an idea or ideal now and quite eager to share. Strong emotions tend to push you into a new direction, and the desire to take action builds. We can be attracted to mysterious things and people today, and many of you have this kind of appeal!

Your Weekly Karma Forecast for June 28 through July 4

Weekly Forecast: June 28 – July 4, 2015

The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity. Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun / Moon / Mercury / Venus / Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus / Neptune/Pluto). And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social planet interacting with a Collective planet because that means something *big* is brewing that will move large groups of people along their evolutionary paths. Tuning in to the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path. It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, as well as guidance and direction.

*NOTE* There are some days when there are NO CONTACTS (besides the Moon), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.

Weekly Forecast: June 28 – July 4, 2015

6/29 ~ Venus (relationships) ~trine~ Uranus (unique):

This energy is likely to bring a little excitement into your life, one way or another. This is a good time to do something different; shake up your routine. Seek out diversions; try something new! Relationships will have an unusual energy to them; an established relationship may sparkle with some extra “spice” or a new relationship begun under this energy will be stimulating, unusual and probably short-lived. Use this energy to soak up some good energy from those who live on the fringes!

7/1 ~ Venus (values) ~conjunct~ Jupiter (truth):

This is an extremely powerful energy that makes you very mentally “present” to the fact that both your values and your truth are shifting. You can connect to material abundance. This is usually a pleasant shift because it is about expanding your sense of authentic beauty, as in nature, and the interrelatedness of all living things. There is an energy of enthusiasm around new or growing relationships which attracts more positive energy. This is the best time to create and “expect miracles”!

7/1 ~ Sun (authenticity) ~trine~ Neptune (intuition):

This energy triggers your idealistic side and provokes a desire to understand things on a deeper, more spiritual level. Try to use this energy to reflect on where you are and where you want to be, mentally, spiritually and physically. Take time to meditate and be still, quiet and alone. You may feel compelled to do things today that have no direct benefit for you; finding satisfaction in giving. Just be sure to ‘help those who help themselves’. Your intuition is heightened also, so pay attention to any ‘messages’ that come thru to you.

7/2 ~ Mercury (acumen) ~sextile~ Uranus (the Awakener):

This energy says, it’s time to go with the flow – “new and different” being the flow. It wants to shake it up a bit – in a good way. However, if you feel like new and different is more like chaos and disruption, then you need to reflect and see if you aren’t being too rigid. Unwillingness to go with the (new) flow will make this energy harder to handle. This is also a good time to try to resolve any old issues or challenges – they are not going away without resolution and conscious release. Perhaps you’ve been trying the same thing over and over and it’s time to try something NEW – now is the time new ideas will come to you. Pay attention! Try to be open and receptive to unusual things, events or ideas; allow spontaneity. You may think you are doing one thing and look up and being doing something completely different – be open to exploring the new path!

7/3 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~sextile~ Jupiter (expansion):

This energy can make you focus on the larger issues in your life. Your dreams are tapping you on the shoulder, demanding some attention. Mundane issues do not concern you, you want to figure out how to create the life you’ve been imagining. This energy also provokes within you the understanding that being generous naturally attracts generosity to you (and your cause). You’re focused on the big picture and overall patterns which have lead you to this point. Feeling clear, sharp, alert and optimistic, your realize that anything you can imagine, you can achieve.

June Energy Report 2015

June Energy Report 2015

a message from Jennifer Hoffman
To read more of Jennifer’s insight, visit her website, Enlightening Life

May was a tough month that had very little to do with Mercury retrograde, although it was a factor. I wrote in the May Energy Report that it was a month for ‘taking action’ and it was, but action involves a lot of things besides jumping in the car and taking off. A lot of planning and preparation has to be done that leads up to the action and that’s what May was for. While I was ready to launch my rocket into the stratosphere, I hadn’t check to see whether it was at the launch pad yet, with ‘all systems go’. In May, every attempted step forward brought up something else for clearing and that was necessary so we can be aligned with and integrate what we are ready to do in June. In June we have some challenges, the biggest ones being stepping out after a very long period of feeling a lack of mobility and freedom, and allowing ourselves to dream really big.

After the first five months of 2015 June may feel like an easy ride but that will be the surface view. Remember the ducks that glide so effortlessly across the water? We don’t see their little feet paddling furiously beneath the surface. Flowing with grace and ease is accompanied by a lot of consistent effort, commitment, and intentional focus. Last month I wrote about separating the ‘wheat from the chaff’, and this is what we’ll see. Who is ready for change and who isn’t? We find out this month and it’s time to walk the talk.

This month starts with a full moon and lots of Gemini action. I have always viewed Gemini as the house of karma and it is highly underrated by the astrology community. But with the Sun, Mars, Mercury, and Saturn, and the new and full moon activity highlighting this house, expect some reminders of karmic cycles, soul groups, soul mates, and the like, especially since Mercury is in some aspect of its retrograde cycle all month. It’s a good idea to double check your communications, leave a little extra time cushion when traveling, and don’t leave details up to chance during this period.

The bigger action this month is all about the energy, as we can now start working with the energy expansion we have created with all of our prior healing and release work. At some point the release and healing must stop, and we have to start taking action. It’s like spending hours cooking a meal that you eventually have to put on the table and eat. It’s now dinner time. But this is also choice and decision time and we’ll now get to see who is ready for action and who isn’t, because while everyone can take action, when faced with that choice, they won’t all choose it. Any fears around change and transformation, around leaving a comfort zone, no matter how stagnant or uncomfortable it is, will come to the surface now.

On a very positive note, the Venus and Jupiter conjunction in Leo gives this a ‘dreams can come true’ ‘month, be sure to dream big and expect big rewards and outcomes. This is an expansive aspect that can bring out the best in everything. It can also bring out the most in everything, so what works will work very well, and what doesn’t work could be very obviously awful. At the end of the month it joins Uranus, so we can expect some surprises and unexpected outcomes.

That offsets Saturn retrograde going back into Scorpio for the last time, a final connection with a cycle that began in late 1985. This aspect lasts until mid-September, so be aware of any ‘blasts from the past’ that arise for you, especially things that happened thirty years ago and are coming around again. What are you going to do differently this time? You can repeat the cycle or create a new path, the choice is always available.

Another big item this month is the ongoing Mercury square Neptune, which doesn’t look like much but it is highly important. It’s the missing piece that allows us to see the complete big picture, to see the truth beyond the ‘truth’, to remove the veil of deception that we sometimes like to hide behind. Mercury represents the important detail that derails the entire process, Neptune is where we can fool ourselves or be fooled, which is another aspect of fooling ourselves.

For example, you are ready to go on a road trip and your car’s engine burns up after the first 50 miles because you put off getting the oil changed for months. Or you are waiting for an important phone call and your phone dies just as the call comes through because you forgot to charge it. There is a lot of deception around us, much of it disguised to appear as truth. This is also the month the Jade Helm military exercise begins in the US, a highly publicized and suspiciously regarded event. With Mercury square Neptune at the same time we have the Venus/Jupiter conjunction, trine Uranus, the truth about it may be revealed in ways that no one can ignore. And since Jade Helm is starting with Mercury stationary retrograde, opposite Saturn and square Neptune, its prospects for hiding the truth and deception don’t look very good. If our eyes are open, we will see very clearly.

We have a big choice to make this month, one that we have already made on many levels, and now it’s a matter of integrating it into our daily lives. Remember that ‘creating heaven on earth’ is an integration, not a takeover. I have been writing about the ‘Christed Consciousness’, which we embody as the divine human, rather than the ‘Christ Consciousness’ that is the martyred or wounded healer, since 2011. Are we ready to embrace our power to integrate our divinity into our humanity? Can we release our polarized beliefs that spirit is ‘good’ and human is ‘bad’? Any polarization is not helpful, we can’t be too spiritual or too human, and duality is the new keyword for us. No more either/or, we are now in the ‘both’ space or better yet, as our multi-dimensional capability increases, in the space of ‘many’.

At some point we have to stop doing healing work and act on what we have learned. Are we afraid of repeating the past? That is one choice, along with the choice to use our new awareness and understanding to create new pathways for energy to follow. We create the realities of the new paradigms and we have a lot of support to get started now. But it’s a combination of aiming our

In light of everything that is happening in June, Mercury retrograde takes a back seat but in Gemini, opposing the Saturn retrograde and square Neptune, you can probably expect some insights around karma, soul contracts and connections, soul mates and help you create closure where it is needed and/or long overdue. And the truth will be dangled around this month quite a bit, the truths we know, those we don’t know, the ones we don’t want to know, as well as those that we need to face up to. It all gets revealed in the end.

Here are some questions to consider for this month:

Do you have unconscious habits that could use an overhaul, including how you view the truth?

Are there truths, in the form of beliefs, that you need to change now, or to allow a new level of awareness to become true for you?

Have your connections become attachments and is your service to others being delivered as a servant, instead of as a master?

Can you self-ishly set new intentions for your life so you are operating at your highest potential vibration and setting your most expanded intentions?

What does Christed Consciousness mean to you and are you ready to stop being the Martyred Healer and consider what it means to live from a more powerful, self-focused perspective?

We have amazing support to dream really big this month and then be prepared to take focused action to make those dreams part of our reality, keeping in mind that taking action includes planning and preparation. We have to aim our energy in the direction we want it to flow before it creates the intended outcomes. You may be ready to launch your rocket into the stratosphere but first make sure it is on the launch pad, the gas tank is full, and it’s pointing in the right direction.

Have a great month.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, May 31st




Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, May 31st



While the morning may be on the tricky side for productivity, dear Aries, it can be good for imaginative activities and simply taking a well-earned break. Watch that you’re not misunderstood, however, especially about issues from the past. Also watch that you don’t ignore/overlook an important matter, or trick yourself into thinking something you want to believe. Hold back and let your imagination take you to pleasant places. Conversations may be complicated just for now. If you’ve been ignoring your needs for rest and spiritual sustenance, you’ll feel this now. Because this is a busy time for you, and you want to stay mentally active, you might consider engaging some of your more creative ideas as you go about your business. As the day advances, more clarity comes, particularly if you’ve allowed yourself time to relax and catch your breath.


The first half of the day is not ideal for clear thinking, Taurus, especially involving money, but also with friends and emotions. Self-deception, where you might be seeing what you want to see, is a possibility now, but it’s also possible that others are evasive. Others’ unreliability may be an issue now, or you could be yearning for a more idyllic connection with someone, a group, or other special tie. While it’s important for you to focus on your practical affairs with so much emphasis on your sector of assets these days, you cannot ignore your more spiritual needs in the process, and this morning, there can be a reminder pointing you in this direction. You may very well discover a way to infuse more imagination and spirit into your business now. The day progresses with more clarity, and also a pleasing emphasis on partnership and close relationships.


With so much emphasis on your sign these days, Gemini, this period of your life is important for discovering your independence, learning about yourself and your needs, and formulating personal goals. Even so, there can be times when you feel a little empty or discontented without a solid plan or definite course of action in place. This is the influence of Neptune in your solar tenth house, which can stimulate some level of confusion about life-plan or career goals, or a lack of direction. You could experience a need to do more or to find your true calling. This may be at the root of restless feelings now. While you can’t resolve these issues in one fell swoop, you may need to take some extra time to get into better touch with your inner needs before going forward. As the day advances, you’re likely to want to busy yourself with small projects and even chores, and it’s a good time to do so.


This morning, consider that you may be tricking yourself when it comes to a belief or goal, dear Cancer. Allow yourself to dream of something better, but don’t fall into the trap of deferring your happiness to a later date when you might achieve a goal. Life doesn’t have to be all or nothing. Consider taking small steps towards achieving big goals. Take a step back and assess a matter that seems too good to be true, or, alternatively, seems too fantastical to hold weight. This is also a good time for challenging your perception of a past matter or a belief. All may not be as it seems. As the day advances, you’re likely to feel less weighed down or restless, particularly if you’ve allowed yourself time to think and rest. This can be a great time for enjoying a hobby or other form of recreation.


While there may be a disappointment about a friend or long-term goal in the first half of the day, Leo, discontent or restlessness felt now can ultimately lead you to important changes or discoveries. This is not the time to be indiscriminate with your money and your emotions. Keep abreast of what’s going on with shared resources. Trust, of course, is important in a relationship, but sometimes others can slip. There can be some confusion experienced now when it comes to your relationships, and especially regarding depth or level of attachment. This is an important period for reaching out and collaborating with others, but you can’t entirely brush off your needs for a deeper, more spiritual connection, or your need for time to yourself and sufficient rest, either. Find ways to make time for others, who are providing important nourishment for you at this time, and for yourself or your close, intimate relationships. The day advances with more clarity, but also a real need for comfort and familiarity.


This can be a “foggy” day in the relationship department, dear Virgo, although this energy tends to dissipate as the day moves forward. There may be important details that are hidden or omitted altogether, and these things can come back around at a later date. Boundaries are tricky to draw with those close to you, but if you allow others to overstep them too often, they might keep pushing your limits to see how far they can go.  If possible, postpone important conversations, get-togethers, or presentations until later. Early today, interactions can be laced with elements of guilt, deception, and insecurity. Events now can remind you of the need to pay more attention to your spiritual needs, particularly when it comes to your partnerships. A parent or authority figure may be reaching out to you or in a position to guide you. The second half of the day is likely to be busy, and pleasantly so.


Do push the limits when it comes to creativity and feeling today, dear Libra, but avoid setting yourself up for disappointment as not everyone else may be on the same page. The first half of the day can be tricky to navigate, as people may be a little evasive now. There is a congregation of planets in your adventure sector, encouraging you to get out and about in order to truly experience and live life, but they have been clashing with Neptune in your work and health sector, suggesting that disorganization or fatigue can be preventing you from doing this fully and unapologetically. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that other people are in charge of your happiness. Try to tidy up your daily affairs and get to the root of any issues of discontent. It may be that you need more spiritually fulfilling routines or work.


If you’ve been entertaining your more logical needs at the expense of your spiritual or imaginative side, dear Scorpio, then this morning’s energies can be a little disorienting, but can also point you in the right direction in order to restore some balance to your life. Rational thinking may be temporarily clouded, and wishful thinking may interfere with seeing matters clearly. You may be passionately seeking an answer to a pressing issue, but pushing matters will not get you anywhere. Watch for miscommunications in a relationship now. Take solace in peaceful activities and remain flexible. This is a time for looking within and finding ways to better satisfy your needs for imagination, creative expression, and spiritual meaning, even if this temporarily takes you away from pursuing your more worldly goals.


If you’ve been spending too much time in the world of the mind or with others at the expense of your needs for solitude, Sagittarius, you’ll feel the pull of your emotional and spiritual needs today. There could be a feeling of discontent, disappointment, or confusion initially, and it’s important to keep expectations of others and of situations at bay. Depending on others to make you happy is a gamble at best, but with so many planets in your house of relationships these days, it’s important to seek out their company. The trick is to enjoy your connections, but look within for sustenance, taking full responsibility for your actions and reactions. The Moon’s presence in your privacy sector all day gives you a further nudge towards a focus on emotional replenishment and renewal.


This is a time for being open to possibilities, but it’s also important to wait things out a little longer, dear Capricorn, if you are launching something important. Big ideas are likely to require a closer look, and today’s energies are rather fuzzy. If you’ve been pushing yourself too hard or forgetting to feed your more spiritual needs, today you’re bound to feel a little drained. Your mind is likely to drift, and it can be hard to stay on course. You are not a person who is especially comfortable with difficult Neptune influences, such as we are experiencing today, as the associated lack of clarity and direction can be especially distracting and frustrating to you. However, if you resolve to let go of a need for control and definition, you’ll feel a whole lot better. If you are able to, give yourself a break from heavy thinking and doing.


You can be feeling especially sensitive in the first half of the day, dear Aquarius, with yet another Neptune square clouding perceptions and encouraging a look within for answers. Wishful thinking can be at play now, and while it’s important to entertain possibilities and fantasy, it’s also important to know in what areas of life to stay grounded. Focusing on the tasks at hand may not be your forte now, but you can feel motivated if something touches upon your higher ideals or inner dreams, so if possible, tend to your more imaginative and creative activities. Watch for a tendency to look the other way if faced with money problems, or to borrow from the future in order to satisfy a temporary desire. As the day advances, the mental or emotional fog tends to lift. The Scorpio Moon tends to bring out your need to perform and achieve.


There can be some restlessness in the first part of the day, dear Pisces, with your ruler, Neptune, in hard aspect with both the Sun and Venus. You’ll have to dig deep in order to find out the source of dissatisfaction, as many of the reasons we give ourselves for being restless or unhappy are superficial and temporary. You could be feeling temporarily unmotivated or ineffective when it comes to handling family, domestic life, or day to day affairs. Now is the time to seek out a balance. Look for areas of your life that have become immoderate or excessive, and seek out doable and relatively simple ways to satisfy some of your inner longings. Remind yourself that it doesn’t have to be all or nothing. Big dreams are fine, but watch that you’re not so focused on them that you are putting off being happy in the present. The day’s confusing energies tend to dissipate as it advances. The Moon is in your adventure sector all day, encouraging movement and learning.

Astrology of Today – May 29, 2015



Astrology of Today – May 29, 2015


There can be some very necessary indecision today, particularly early on with Mercury and Neptune forming a square. Early on the 31st, the Sun will form a square to Neptune as well, and Venus will form a sesquiquadrate to Neptune. These aspects can be temporarily disorienting if we’ve been overlooking our spiritual, creative, and imaginative needs, as we can feel some discontent and uncertainty. This slowdown is confusing at first, but necessary as it gives us a chance to discover what we may have been missing. It’s a difficult time to get clarity, and if we push too hard in this respect, it can be a discouraging time. However, we might consider that solid, definite answers are not necessary for us at the moment. Letting go of the need to control, itemize, and rationalize just a little can help us tremendously at this time.

Later today, influences that stir creativity and resourcefulness involve Mercury biquintile Pluto and both bodies quintile Vesta, as well as a trine between Mercury and Ceres. There can be dedication to, or renewed interest in, a project or topic. Research can be effective.

The Moon is in Libra all day (until Saturday, May 30th, at 5:33 AM).
The Moon is void from 4:20 PM forward (until 5:33 AM tomorrow).
The Moon is waxing and in its First Quarter phase until 4:06 PM / in its Waxing Gibbous phase from 4:06 PM forward).
Mercury is retrograde. (Mercury is retrograde from May 18 to June 11 in the sign of Gemini).

Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, May 28th


Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, May 28th



There should be nice energy with you today for conversations, learning, communicating, and studying, Aries. There is a bigger focus on others, your relationships, and negotiating or accommodating people in your life, and quite a bit of pleasure in so doing, as you tend to want to spend time in others’ company. Later today, you can be a little more sensitive to imbalances in your environment, including situations that are too messy and hectic, and to what others are saying. There may be some second-guessing of plans, as small weaknesses seem to reveal themselves. A conversation or news received now can be misleading. Let time tell.


This can be an easy day for work-related matters, dear Taurus, as you seem to naturally fall into a productive rhythm and have a nice feeling of being in synch with the people around you. This is a good week for looking at your finances and work or security matters in a new or different light, and coming up with solutions. However, there may be a bit of confusion in these areas to get past first. Later today is not the best time for clarity, particularly when it comes to finances, but also personal boundaries, possibly with a friend. There might even be some sneaky behavior going on around you. Whether it’s about bluffing or withholding information, it’s best to postpone big decisions or complicated topics.


Much of the day, you can feel quite supported and rather free, dear Gemini, so that letting loose your more expressive, playful, or creative side is natural and easy. There is a sense that you can get pretty much anything done. Your head and your heart are working in harmony now, and this means you can make connections you wouldn’t normally make. Later today, your imagination can grow, possibly to a point of excess, with your ruler, Mercury, challenged by illusive Neptune. It’s important to avoid making too much or too little of a person or situation under this influence. Use this time for imagining possibilities without jumping to conclusions. Let time tell the truth of a matter.


Your need for security and comfort is more pronounced today, dear Cancer, and you’re likely to seek out either the company of familiar people or privacy and solitude today, as you’re in need of a bit of a retreat or respite. It can be a wonderful time for emotional renewal, as well as moments spent with important memories. Look within and to your support system for what you need today. Not all communications are likely to get through exactly as intended later today, but if you let go of expectations and simply allow your mind some free rein, it’s a good night for creative visualization and pursuits.


You can be feeling especially eager and confident today, dear Leo, particularly when it comes to communications projects, learning, studies, friendships, and team work. There can be a good feeling of emotional rapport with others, as well as enthusiasm for future projects and activities. As the day winds down, emotions and imagination tend to strongly color your perceptions. This week is strong for generating ideas that can significantly impact your life, particularly related to long-term happiness goals, group associations, and friendships. First, you may need to rethink a few details, and tonight, there can be a confusing attachment or a crossing of boundaries that is hard to interpret.


Emotionally, you’re more sure-footed today, dear Virgo, with the Moon now out of your sign. Focus is on what can be done, as well as activities that build and support rather than satisfy in the moment. Much of the day seems supportive of your efforts to make a mark on practical levels, and you feel rather enthusiastic about recent projects and ideas. As the day winds down, let your mind go and entertain more out of this world ideas and thoughts, as your ruler, Mercury, is coming to a hard angle with Neptune, reminding you to soften some of the hard edges of your mind and to entertain less obvious possibilities. With this influence, avoid solid commitments, as it’s not the time for clarity.


The Moon is in your sign all day, Libra, and is communicating well with planets transiting your adventure sector. This stimulates a pleasant, fresh outlook and sense of general support, airy lightness, and positivity. You are a little braver than usual, particularly for entertaining new concepts and ideas, for expressing your feelings or opinions, and for believing in someone or something. You can more fully appreciate the cooperative elements of your life. Personal enjoyment should be easy, but later today it’s vital that you avoid expecting things to transpire exactly as expected, and to avoid taking things at face value only, as there is a rather dreamy but confusing and possibly disorienting aspect between Mercury and Neptune active later today and early tomorrow. Watch for forgetfulness.


This can be a great day for looking back on recent events and discovering different ways to approach areas of your life that have grown a little dull, dear Scorpio. Today and this week are strong for coming up with ideas that can have significance in your future, particularly related to self-improvement programs, your intimate life, and financial support or shared resources. To get there, however, you may need to deal with a bit of confusion in these areas. Imagination is powerful later today, possibly to the point of self-deception, but if harnessed and channeled in the right direction, you can be highly creative right now.


Much of the day is good for spending with a partner or friends, Sagittarius. Sharing ideas, enjoying activities with others, networking, and negotiating can be in focus now, and quite favored. It’s only towards the end of the day that there can be some lack of clarity. It’s a good time for dreaming up new ideas, but less ideal for discovering concrete answers or commitments. The best way to handle this energy is to resolve to let go of expectations and simply enjoy the moment. A partner could be giving off mixed signals. Look for new ways to approach the people in your life if you feel a little distant. With Mercury retrograde, this is a strong time for rethinking problem areas, particularly relationship-related.


Most of the day is strong for exchanging ideas, making plans and lists, devising strategies, and considering different sides to a problem, Capricorn. You may be anxious to share some of your recent ideas and enthusiasm with others, or to build upon them on your own. Later today, as Mercury and Neptune move towards a square, engage your creative and imaginative side rather than focus too heavily on facts and figures. Sometimes when these two planets meet, we can get carried away with impractical ideas, but if you stay grounded and simply entertain possibilities, this shouldn’t be a problem.


You get nice support from a group of planets in fellow Air signs today, dear Aquarius, and this gives you a feeling of general ease and lightness. You can in fact feel quite buoyant now. Certainly, your more creative and playful sides are easier to access and express. You can be excited about recent new ideas and might be playing around with how you might turn them into something solid. Towards the end of the day, clarity isn’t as easy to come by. Mercury and Neptune are moving towards a square, and this tends to cast a temporary layer of fog over your thinking. Use this energy to entertain fantasies, but wait before making big decisions, particularly related to matters of the heart and financial affairs.


This can be a good day for keeping your mind and body busy, Pisces, even with a rather retiring quality to your nature right now. You could be very busy with your memories, and with reviewing recent events and conversations. Keep a healthy flow of communication going with family and those close to you. Consider ways to improve the ways you communicate, as this is a strong period with Mercury retrograde to look at the ways you connect with others in new ways. This week is strong for seeing where improvements can be made. Later today, there can be some confusion or lack of clarity that crops up with family or concerning domestic affairs, however. It’s a chance to look for inconsistencies in plans.

Your Weekly Astrology Report: May 25 – 31


Weekly Astrology: May 25 – 31, 2015

There’s tension in the air…

This might shape up to be the most difficult week in May. Get your cosmic advice on how to deal with the tension — STAT!

Monday, May 25: Venus in Cancer square Uranus; Mars square Neptune

On Monday, Venus will square off with Uranus prompting an unexpected but radical shift in a romantic or financial matter. Making it worse is the fact that Mars will also square Neptune, leaving you feeling incapable of doing anything about it. This day might feel a lot like being hit by lightning one minute and then drowning the next. Go with the flow as much as you can and above all, be gentle with yourself.

Wednesday, May 27: Mercury Retrograde conjunct Mars

Friday, May 29: Mercury Retrograde square Neptune

Saturday, May 30: Sun conjunct Mercury Retrograde

On Wednesday, Mercury, now retrograde, will conjunct Mars and on Friday he’ll square Neptune. Then, on Saturday, the Sun will conjunct Mercury. This could be an opportunity to review important communication matters that you were confused about a couple of weeks ago. You can make things right, but first you’ll have to deal with the accompanying mental frustration. Don’t initiate any new communication-related endeavors this week. Instead, make sure you focus on tying up loose ends from existing ones.

Sunday, May 31: Sun square Neptune

Finally, on Sunday the Sun will square Neptune. Again, your vitality won’t be as strong as you’d like. The good news is that it’s a great aspect for pursuing anything spiritual or imaginative. Even better, schedule a spa day for yourself and just “zone out.” Soul nourishing activities are called for. Honor it. is a Daily Insight Group Site
