2015 Astro-Energy Report

2015 Astro-Energy Report

a message from Sarah Varcas

 

Show Up, Own Up and Step Up!
2015 is characterised by an energy markedly different to the ‘norm’ of the past three years. The Uranus/Pluto square which began in 2012 comes to a close in 2015, having made its presence unremittingly felt by so many of us. Lives have been turned upside down, perspectives forever shifted, circumstances reshaped beyond recognition. We have lost the things, people and places we thought we could never live without and discovered new ways of being we thought were never possible. Some people have been touched more deeply than others. Some in resoundingly positive ways. Others have faced what has looked and felt like devastation. In very basic terms Uranus is sudden, unavoidable change and Pluto is destructive and/or creative power. When these two work together shocks and surprises are guaranteed, as is rebirth from the rubble of destruction and the possibility of a new life if we rise to the challenge and steel ourselves to ride the waves and see where we finally come to rest.

 
In the first half of 2015 many will discover where they now stand after many months of struggling to keep their head above water. Dry land once more and daylight to view the terrain! It will be tempting to look back over all that has happened and reflect upon the twists and turns which have brought us to this place. Reflection is fine, but indulging in nostalgia or melancholy for things past is best avoided for there is too much now to be done. What’s gone is gone and whilst we may still be deep within the process of adjustment, grief or the healing of wounds incurred, it is important that we stay conscious of what we do with our attention, where we allow it to rest and why. The future awaits and the present is ripe with potential. Expending too much energy on the past in ways which do not further our emergence into wholeness is energy wasted at a time we can ill afford such extravagance. The coming year challenges us to use every ounce of energy to further our collective awakening not lull ourselves back into a state of unconsciousness simply because it is easier to do.

 
February sees an important New Moon on 18th (GMT) exactly on the cusp between Aquarius and Pisces. It is both a Black Moon (the second New Moon in a solar month) and a Super Moon (although not the most powerful Super Moon of the year – we must wait until September for that!). Having spent the past few weeks settling into our new terrain we now have an opportunity to decide what we want to do with this year. An excellent time to commit to new beginnings, we must ensure they are new enough to be worthy of this especially powerful energy. Look back to the Super Moon on 10th August 2014 to find the seeds of the present moment. The adjustments and changes required back then will begin to bear fruit from here on in to the extent we have committed to embodying them as a living breathing part of who we are, not just a tag-on for when we feel motivated enough to be different for a while! Hence the need for the current new beginnings to be ‘new enough’, not simply a rehash of commitments made in the past but never followed through. The cosmos calls for deeply creative innovation at this point. If we really want to do our bit for the evolution of this planet, the birthing of the Aquarian Age, then here’s our chance to show up, own up and step up, no holds barred!

 
Mid March sees the final exact Uranus/Pluto square before this alignment begins to fade as the year progresses. So much has been written by so many about this aspect in the past few years, there’s little that hasn’t been said! However, Jupiter adds its penny’s worth into the mix this time, reminding us that actualisation of self and spirit requires complete acceptance of both physical and non-material realms. We must embrace everything to become whole. There is no need to reject or disconnect from one level of experience in favour of another. Any beliefs we still hold that spiritual equals special, rarefied, super-sensitive and psychic will be sorely challenged by this final alignment of Uranus and Pluto, for they demand that we acknowledge ‘spiritual’ as simply being conscious of the whole: physical, mental emotional and spiritual. To be spiritual is to be whole – plain and simple. When awake to this truth of ourselves we are what we are: a force of nature, a point of awareness, the universe waking up to its own presence. When we can embody spirit in our material form, ground multi-dimensional truths in our daily lives, recognise the unified field of energy which connects us all and recommit in each moment to knowing these truths ever more deeply, then we are spiritual. And we will have no need of a label or identity, recognition or praise for being so because life itself, which is all that we are, needs nothing except to follow its own nature. A solar eclipse in the final degree of the zodiac a couple of days after the final Uranus/Pluto square makes clear, in case we’ve missed the point, that something has now ended. If we are still clinging to the vestiges of who we once were, of an old identity we thought was ours forever, of past loves or lifestyles, it is time to finally release and move on.

 
A lunar eclipse in Libra on 4th April raises the issue of relationships and their role as a mirror, held up to our inner self. How we manage our own individuation and independence, how we satisfy our need for security and assurance, how we subjectively perceive others, all of this is highlighted now and a willingness to recognise the health of our key relationships as a reflection of our own inner well-being will be rewarded with insight and revelation. Come mid-May, asteroid Juno conjuncts Jupiter symbolising the sacred marriage of the divine masculine and feminine, the union of opposites through which a third state is born independent of them. At this time we can gain direct experience of what it means to be both wholly self-possessed whilst completely at one with another. We can offer up our all to relationships whilst also retaining it for ourselves. Such paradoxes will be clarified in the willingness to embrace not an either/or – separate or merged – attitude, but a willingness to see beyond them to a state of being in which we can both relinquish our (small) self as we own our (divine) Self and come to know that nothing can diminish the latter.

 
Venus stations retrograde in the first degree of Virgo on 25th July (GMT) and travels retrograde through Leo until 6th September, finally returning to Virgo in October. This is a cycle of ‘almost there but not quite’. The goddess of love reminds us that love of self is both divinely ordained and an egoic trick. Discerning between the two is vital and Venus’s retrograde passage through Leo offers us the chance to do exactly that before we settle into Virgo and recall that, to quote the First Letter of John in the New Testament, ‘First we were loved’. Venus in Virgo reminds us that love is our natural state, the breath which animates all things, and any struggle we may have to accept or understand this highlights a misconception about its true nature. A misconception due to be clarified as the year progresses. By the end of 2015 we may well know more deeply than ever before that love is far from the hearts and flowers, sweetness and light that we perceived it to be, but instead a mighty force that can return even the most fractured and broken things to a state of wholeness, no matter what it takes.

 
In September Saturn bids a final farewell to Scorpio as it settles into Sagittarius for the next couple of years. Time to live the truths that have surfaced from all that soul searching demanded by its journey through Scorpio in the previous three! As Jupiter, ruler of Sagittarius, made clear at the final Uranus/Pluto square in March, truth is redundant if not embodied and honoured in the minutiae of our daily lives. Saturn in Sagittarius reminds us that rarefied spirituality requiring special conditions to exist is a red-herring these days. We must be able to live spiritual truth in the midst of the mundane, not spend our days waiting for that moment when we can go off and be spiritual again elsewhere. Any and all notions of ‘spiritual equals special’, will be repeatedly challenged by Saturn in the coming couple of years. Our task is to recognise that spiritual is not a label marking us or our lives out from the crowd, but instead a fact about human existence which anyone can choose to acknowledge at any moment. We are all of us spirit as much as flesh, mundane as much as special. The egoic mind will play around with these things making ‘spiritual’ into an achievement or a designation of superiority but it is neither of these. It simply is and we are it: spirit made flesh, human and divine, every moment of every day.

 
Saturn’s arrival in Sagittarius is sandwiched between a solar eclipse in Virgo on 13th (GMT) and a super moon and lunar eclipse in Aries on 28th (GMT), marking September out as a highly influential month. The solar eclipse highlights the primal energies which flow through us and the need for their taming, not to suppress or avoid them but to harness and apply them with wisdom and presence. If we allow them full reign without the application of wisdom we can create circumstances which hinder our lives, block progress or destroy the very things we value. Acknowledging these energies and becoming intimate with them, recognising that we can be both fiercely compassionate and blindingly selfish, peace-loving and enraged, hopeful and despairing, empowers us to accept who we are and resolve to be as authentic and honest as possible. This takes wisdom and fortitude, a willingness to be both vulnerable and powerful, self-assured and acutely aware of our own insignificance in this vast universe we call home. The energies of this month challenge us to be the most awake we can be so that come the lunar eclipse we can consolidate what this means in terms of our everyday life, recognizing the ever increasing need for more and more people to be willing to do what it takes and go the extra mile to birth the burgeoning Aquarian Age upon whose cusp we now languish.
The final quarter of 2015 sees the advent of the next major alignment to step into the breach left by the dissolution of the Uranus/Pluto square earlier this year. This time we have Saturn squaring Neptune, signalling the final phase of a 36 year cycle which began back in 1989. This aspect will continue throughout 2016 but first makes an exact alignment at the end of November. Here we encounter the tension between truth and dogma, reality and illusion, commitment and irresponsibility, isolation and unity. Beliefs will come under pressure: Do they stand up to scrutiny? Do they hold out in the face of experience? Are they true or simply comforting? During the course of this alignment we will all have to face where in our lives we are most dogmatic and accept that what we would like to be clear and certain, irrefutable and therefore true may be anything but. At this point in the year we are all embarking on a journey of self-discovery. It may see icons topple and heroes deposed, but ultimately it can return us to ourselves in the quiet space of a heart that knows the truth so deeply no dogma is needed nor argument necessary. The North Node assists with our search for ultimate truth as November 2015 sees it shift into Virgo for the next eighteen months. Thus is set the theme for 2016 while this year draws to a close: truth in all its forms, the nature of perfection and how perfect each moment really is, no matter what we think or feel about it.

Are You Ready for This? Your Love Horoscopes for the Year 2015

2015 Love Horoscope

The promise of love

By Maria DeSimone

 

2015 kicks off with a longing for pleasure and the promise of its delivery. Jupiter, the planet of expansion, will remain in romantic Leo until August 11, 2015. During this time it’ll be easier to open your heart and invite the possibilities of love in. The pursuit of pleasure will reach dramatic proportions on March 3, 2015, and again on June 22, when Jupiter makes a perfect trine to Uranus — the planet of sudden developments. If you’re willing to take a gamble with your heart on these dates, then there’s a great deal of support to ensure you’ll be lucky in love. Fire signs and Air signs benefit most from this heart-pounding energy!

Jupiter moves into discerning Virgo after August 11, and on October 25 will make a conjunction to the love planet Venus. This combination makes practical romance a delicious priority. Earth signs and Water signs will benefit most from this combination.

Me vs. we

In other news, the dichotomy between self and relationship continues to be a theme in Lunar and Solar Eclipse cycles this year. On April 4, 2015, there will be a Lunar Eclipse in relationship-oriented Libra that is close to the tense, final Uranus-Pluto square (happening on March 16). This will help anyone stuck in an outworn partnership to break free from its chains. Then, a Lunar Eclipse in independent Aries on September 27 will leave you emotionally focused on your needs both in and out of the context of relationship.

The Nodes of the Moon continue to travel through this same Aries-Libra axis through mid-November 2015. With the North Node in Libra and the South Node in Aries, we’re encouraged to learn how to balance healthy relationships while letting go of self-serving urges to go it alone. Learning how to let someone in and truly partner up is the goal. Are you ready?

Aries 2015 Love Horoscope

Lucky in love

Get set for a year of serious passion potential, Aries! 2015 kicks off with Jupiter moving through your 5th House of True Love and Pleasure. In this area of your chart since July 2014, Jupiter provides a once-in-twelve-years opportunity to meet and fall in love with someone who melts your heart in the most incredible way. If you’re single, there are dazzling prospects ahead for you in matters of the heart — all you have to do is remain open to the possibilities.

In addition, you’ll receive two extraordinary trines from Jupiter to Uranus, now in your sign. This planetary combination suggests sudden, expansive luck in the romance department for you. Look to March 3, 2015, and again on June 22 to win the jackpot of love … all you have to do is take a chance. In addition, love planet Venus will tour your 5th house from June 5 until July 18, enhancing the vibes even more between you and your sweetheart.

Strut your stuff

Whether you’re single or in a relationship, you’ll certainly benefit from Venus and Mars touring your sign together this year. From February 20 until March 17, 2015, Venus in your sign will leave you irresistible to others. Your self-confidence will be at an all-time high! Mars touring your sign from February 19 until March 31 will leave you oozing with sex appeal. Pursuing the object of your desire will not be a problem during this time. In fact, the thrill of the chase in a love affair will leave you feeling sexier than ever.

If there’s any trouble in paradise between you and your spouse or anyone else you’re in a committed relationship with, the Lunar Eclipse on April 4 might drive a wedge between the two of you that’s impossible to ignore. A final Lunar Eclipse on September 27 in your sign will signal how important it is to have your emotional needs met and honored in a relationship. Still, this year, when it comes to love: Ask and you shall receive.

Taurus 2015 Love Horoscope

Lessons from the heart

You’ve spent the last couple of years learning serious lessons about love and partnership, Taurus. Saturn, the great taskmaster of the zodiac, has been touring your 7th House of Commitment since October 2012, forcing you to confront any doubt you have about your relationship. You also had an opportunity to consider whether or not your partner was someone you could truly count on, through thick and thin.

Moments of truth

If your marriage or committed relationship endured Saturn’s concentrating focus, you’ll begin 2015 in a different place. As a couple, you will likely survive and thrive. If, however, you’re still on the fence about whether or not your mate is truly the one you want to remain with over the long haul, Saturn will revisit your 7th house for one final “moment of truth” lesson between June 14 and September 17, 2015.

Saturn starts the year in your 8th House of Intimacy and Shared Resources, and after September 17 will remain in this part of your chart until December of 2017. If you’re partnered up, your relationship lessons will focus more on creating a solid financial future with your love. In addition, if you’re still holding back emotionally and sexually with your partner, Saturn here will encourage you to confront insecurities about allowing yourself to feel vulnerable and trust your partner.

Single Taureans will be overjoyed to know that 2015 will be one of the best times to find new love nearly 12 years! Jupiter, the planet of expansion and abundance, will enter your 5th House of Romance and Pleasure on August 11, 2015, and will remain in this part of your chart until September of 2016. On September 13, 2015, a supportive Solar Eclipse will also fall in the same area of your chart. Get ready to open your heart and experience the kind of love affair you thought only happened in fairytales!

Gemini 2015 Love Horoscope

Revising relationships

This year, it’s time to sober up about love and relationship. On December 23, 2014 Saturn, the planet of lessons and restriction, but also commitment, enters your 7th House of Partnership. Besides a short reprieve between June 14 and September 17 of 2015, Saturn will remain in this part of your chart until December of 2017. So, what does this mean for your love life?

A lot.

For starters, if you’re married or in a committed relationship as this transit begins, it’s likely that you and your mate will undergo a period of revision within your love connection. Any weak links in your union will now be exposed and tested to the limit in order to see if the two of you have what it takes to make it through thick and thin. If there are no weak links then congratulations, this transit will only affirm your knowledge that the two of you will last “‘Til death do you part.” If, however, you’re like most humans who relate, there will be at least one area you and your love can improve on. Saturn will help you focus on that and will demand that you do the work necessary to master the situation.

For Geminis in a relationship that has potential, Saturn touring your 7th house might lead to an engagement or marriage over the next couple of years.

Loving and letting go

If you enter this transit in 2015 completely single, there might be some heartache at first, but ultimately Saturn here can leave you feeling certain that you will not settle just to “settle down.” A tense Lunar Eclipse in your 5th House of Love and Dating might be the final straw to an affair that isn’t headed in the right direction. If you break up with a lover during this time, know that the events will lead you a place of greater strength and dignity when it comes to matters of the heart.

Still, despite the lessons ahead, you’ll have a definite boost in magnetism and confidence between April 11 and May 6 while love planet Venus is in your sign. Work it!

Cancer 2015 Love Horoscope

Let it shine

Get ready to breathe a huge sigh of relief Cancer, because when it comes to love, in 2015 things are looking brighter than ever!

The main reason for this has to do with the planet Saturn. Since October 2012 Saturn has been moving through your 5th House of Love and Pleasure, leaving obstacles all over the place for you to navigate. Circumstances beyond your control might have kept you from a lover. Perhaps just when you met the perfect mate, he or she got a fantastic job offer — across the country. Suddenly, you found yourself in the middle of a long-distance relationship and ultimately, it wasn’t doable. That’s only one of countless possible scenarios.

Dark days are over

If you’re married with children it’s possible that the last couple of years have been extra challenging for you and your spouse in terms of raising your kids. You might have felt overextended and with little time to spare, you forgot how to nourish your love life.

If single, you might have been in a major dry spell — unable to meet anyone over the last couple of years who makes your heart skip a beat. You might even have decided that you’ll never find love again.

Well thankfully, as 2015 begins all of these obstacles are suddenly gone and you’ll be free to love! Saturn will dip back into your 5th house for a few short weeks between June 14 and September 17, 2015, but this phase will likely be more about mastery than misery.

Leo 2015 Love Horoscope

Take a chance

In many ways you’ll have the best of both worlds when it comes to matters of the heart in 2015. For starters, you’ll be incredibly magnetic, open, and ready to embrace love thanks to Jupiter continuing to tour your sign until August 11, 2015. In fact, Jupiter will make gorgeous trines to Uranus on March 3 and again on June 22 of 2015, allowing you to feel even more compelled to take a major chance on what will make you happiest in your love life. You’ll feel ready to explore new horizons, and will want to do so with someone special by your side.

With all of this expansion, you might initially feel that it’s a downer to learn that Saturn, the planet of limitation and responsibility, will be touring your 5th House of True Love in 2015. Not true! For you — at least while Jupiter is in your sign — this is actually a positive. You see, Jupiter in Leo will help you expand, but Saturn in your 5th house will help you focus on expanding only with someone who truly deserves your heart. See? It’s all about balance and perspective.

Lessons in love

On December 23, 2014, Saturn moves into this area of your chart — the 5th house. With the exception of a few short weeks between June 14 and September 17, 2015, Saturn will remain here until December of 2017. Lessons in love will certainly be a focus, but again, at least for most of 2015, those lessons don’t appear to be harsh for you. It seems like this is more about definition, substance, and building a solid foundation in the love relationship that Jupiter in Leo wants to encourage you to explore.

Still, whether you’re single or in a relationship, by the end of 2015 there might be one area you’ll need to work on. On November 26, Saturn will make his first square to Neptune, the planet of illusion and confusion, now in your 8th House of Joint Finances and Intimacy. This will happen twice more in 2016. This pattern speaks about a possible lesson connected to sex and intimacy for you, as well as whether or not you’re ready to blend material resources with a lover. Don’t waste time dwelling on this now, Leo. See where you are near the end of the year in terms of relationship and handle it from that reality. For now, know that the universe wants you to reach for the love that you know you deserve.

Virgo 2015 Love Horoscope

Total eclipse of the heart

Significant astrological trends in 2015 will create an atmosphere that supports positive and deep emotional changes for you in relationship matters. If you’re a Virgo born in the latter degrees of the sign, you can anticipate the most life-altering shifts. That’s because this year the Solar Eclipses will begin to affect your sign and your opposite sign, Pisces. This is your relationship axis.

On March 20, 2015, a Solar Eclipse will fall at the 29th degree of Pisces. Overall, this eclipse is positive, and will help you create important changes to an existing relationship that you know will ultimately strengthen it. You’ll see past illusions, but instead of feeling disappointed by a lover’s human flaws, you’ll be in a place of acceptance; allowing love to prevail. If single, this eclipse might help you create a new space for partnership in your life; one based on reality instead of fantasy.

Starting over

The second Solar Eclipse of 2015 falls in your sign on September 13 at 20 degrees. Now you’ll have to move through difficult conversations about relationship in order to honestly begin anew with your partner. If you’ve experienced any betrayal or “lie of omission” in your partnership, it will likely come out now. If the love is strong enough, this won’t be a deal-breaker but instead will open the door for new conversations that support your personal growth within the relationship. You can define what you will and won’t stand for in matters of the heart without losing love.

Adding to the support of this second eclipse is Jupiter. On August 11, 2015, he’ll enter your sign where he’ll remain until September 6, 2016. This is an amazing phase where you’ll have an opportunity to grow in extraordinary ways. If single, you can meet and fall in love with someone who can literally change everything you thought you knew about romance. Look to October 11 and again on October 25 for experiences that make you certain love will conquer all.

Libra 2015 Love Horoscope

A new definition of love

If you’re in a committed partnership such as marriage, since 2012 you and your mate have certainly weathered an inordinate amount of storms together. This tension focused on the quality of your relationship as well as tense family situations that have either brought you closer together or divided you far apart. In certain cases, these storms have resulted in the end of the relationship as you know it. Whatever the details, the greater meaning of Uranus in your 7th House of Partnership, squaring off with Pluto in your 4th House of Home and Family, has changed everything you thought marriage and commitment meant.

Intensity rises

In 2015 there will be one final jolt in this area of your life — on March 16. Relationship upheaval is possible at that time, and it’s magnified by the tense Lunar Eclipse to your sign on April 4. If you’ve been holding on to a partner that has been screaming “Set me free!” it looks like this might be the final straw. You’ll be ready to let go or will be forced to. If, however, you’ve been able to roll with the punches of dramatic change in your relationship, you’ll get through this phase just like you’ve moved through the other Uranus-Pluto squares. On September 27, another Lunar Eclipse occurs, this time on your 7th House Cusp of Partnership. This eclipse will bring to culmination everything you’ve been learning about love, marriage, and honoring individuality while maintaining a relationship.

Single Librans have hope in the romance department in 2015 for sure — and it all centers on your social life. Jupiter will remain in your 11th House of Groups and Friends until August 11, expanding your social circle in an exciting way. On March 3 and again on June 22, 2015, Jupiter will make an exciting link to Uranus, ruler of your 5th House of True Love. Uranus is currently in your 7th House of Partnership, and sudden romantic connections that happen in a social context might result in your love life taking on an exciting, unexpected but positive turn.

Scorpio 2015 Love Horoscope

Work for what you want

Love and relationship might not have been a walk in the park for you since late 2012. Saturn, the planet of definition and constraint, entered your sign at that time, demanding that you roll up your sleeves and dig into a phase of serious self-work. Through facing realistic limitations within your current relationship, it allowed you to reach a new sense of maturity. As a result, if you decided that your partnership is worth working for, the two of you will be in a position to thrive in 2015.

Saturn will only peek back into Scorpio between June 14 and September 17, 2015, and during that time you’re more likely to reap the rewards of what you’ve worked for in terms of personal accomplishments and relationship endurance.

Friends with benefits

If single in 2015, there are gorgeous opportunities ahead for romance. Most notably, a Solar Eclipse will light up your 5th House of True Love on March 20. Also, after August 11 Jupiter will move into your 11th House of Friends and Groups, where he’ll remain until September 6, 2016. There’s a good chance that a friend will introduce you to someone, helping you form a love connection. Another possibility is that you and a friend will take your relationship from platonic to intimate. A gorgeous connection between love planet Venus and Jupiter in this part of your chart on October 25 reinforces the potential. Best of all? You’ll be in a position where you’re not only ready to give love … but truly receive it.

Sagittarius 2015 Love Horoscope

Moments of magic

Romantic prospects for 2015 have a nice sprinkling of adventure and unpredictable excitement! You might not be attracted to your usual type — suddenly, you may yearn to link up with someone who is radically different from yourself and if so, that will be the best chance you have for developing a true love connection. If single, on March 3 and again on June 22, 2015, you’ll have magical dates for a very special, but erratic meeting. Jupiter, your ruler, will be at a gorgeous trine to Uranus, the planet of surprises, now in your 5th House of Fun and Romance. The person you run into when you least expect it just might be your next great love. Or at least your next great lover!

Big changes

Still, despite the opportunity for excitement, you’ll begin an important process this year that will ultimately help you gain a new level of personal maturity and more solid expectations about relationship. On December 23, 2014, Saturn, the planet of lessons, enters your sign for the first time in 29 years. With the exception of June 14 – September 17, 2015, Saturn will remain in your sign until December 2017. Wow! This will be a phase of you taking on new commitments and responsibilities — possibly even a time you get married or make a serious, life-changing decision with a partner.

A Lunar Eclipse on September 27, 2015 will either end a love affair that’s not serious enough, or be the turning point for you and someone special to go exclusive. If already in a committed relationship, you and your mate could decide to become parents.

Capricorn 2015 Love Horoscope

Nourishing your roots

If you’re married or in a committed relationship, 2015 might bring a moment of truth for you and your mate — one that hits close to home.

On March 16, 2015, we’ll experience the last of seven jolting squares between Uranus and Pluto that have been occurring since 2012. Because Pluto is in your sign and Uranus is in your 4th House of Family, this has certainly changed the landscape of your relationship and family dynamic. The final hit happening this year will bring all of this to culmination. You’ve been in a profound cycle of deep, personal transformation. Along with this metamorphosis came changes in your personality that might have rattled things at home with your significant other. Now, you’ll know whether or not your relationship fits in the context of the changes you know you must make for your soul growth.

Getting serious

Fortunately, Jupiter will continue to tour your 8th House of Intimacy and Shared Resources until August 11, 2015. This will help you open up to your mate and “go deep” to improve your psychological and physical connection. On the material side, you may notice that your partner has a boost in his or her earning power during this time as well. Obviously, you’ll benefit. If you and your spouse have come to the realization that your marriage is over, you’ll likely work out a financial settlement that is favorable to you during this time.

If single, you’ll want to mark the dates when Venus and Mars cycle through your 5th House of Romance for incredible opportunities to meet someone special, fall in love, and have amazing sex! Venus tours your 5th house between March 17 – April 11, 2015, which represents a blissful time to date, mingle, and romance the nights away. Then, Mars will make his once-every-two-years trek through the same part of your chart from March 31- May 11 amping up your libido and ensuring that the pursuit of pleasure is your top priority.

Aquarius 2015 Love Horoscope

Give and take

There’s great potential for joy in your love life this year, Aquarius. By the same token, 2015 will be a time to consider more than ever before whether or not you have struggled with the concept of receiving love. If so, you’ll have an opportunity to focus on that very important life lesson.

The best news has to do with the planet Jupiter. Until August 11, 2015, he will continue touring your 7th House of Partnership, expanding any relationship situation you already have going on. If you and your mate are enjoying a positive phase now, then you can anticipate it only getting better. In fact, on March 3, 2015, and again on June 22, Jupiter will make a gorgeous trine to Uranus, now in your 3rd House of Communication. Around this time you and your love might decide to become engaged, get married, or make another sudden change to your relationship that will make couplehood seem more electrifying than ever!

Insecurities in intimacy

As we move into 2015 however, the planet Saturn will have already entered your 11th House of Groups, Social Networks, and Hopes. The 11th house is opposite the 5th House of Romance — the area of your chart connected to opening your heart and giving love. As such, its opposite house, the 11th, is all about receiving love. With Saturn here until December of 2017, you might feel extra cautious about whom you allow into your heart. You might also struggle with insecurities connected to whether or not you deserve the amazing love you truly yearn for. If this is the case, recognize that you’re at a pivotal time where the universe wants you to overcome, not succumb to these insecurities.

Pisces 2015 Love Horoscope

Ready for something new

Anticipate serious love potential in 2015, Pisces! This year might leave your head spinning (in a good way) when you consider the possibilities in store for you relationship-wise. It all begins as early as March 20, when a Solar Eclipse occurs in the last degree of your sign. This eclipse sets the tone for new beginnings and changes to your personal development and identity. These shifts will ultimately lead to remarkable changes in your love life. On September 13, a Solar Eclipse will fall in your 7th House of Relationship, and it’s possible that you and someone special will be ready to launch your very own “happily ever after.”

Bigger and better

What makes this even more compelling is the fact that lucky Jupiter enters your 7th house on August 11, 2015, and will remain in this part of your chart until September 9, 2016. Jupiter here will blow up whatever is happening between you and someone close, for better or worse. Happily, it appears that you’re more likely to experience positive vibes in the relationship department and as such, Jupiter will likely be your greatest ally, buffering and supporting developments between you and your mate.

If you’re single and looking for a love connection, mark your calendar for May 7 – June 5, 2015, when amorous Venus enters your 5th House of Romance. Be sure to socialize more and go out on dates with people who spark your interest. Sexual excitement heats up from June 24 – August 8, when Mars tours the same area of your chart. You’ll certainly have more fun in bed!

Partial solar eclipse to darken US skies this week (October 23rd)

Partial solar eclipse to darken US skies this week

By Joe Rao, SPACE.com Skywatching Columnist

 

Mark Thursday (Oct. 23) on your calendar as “Solar Eclipse Day,” for if the weather cooperates, you should have no difficulty observing a partial eclipse of the sun.

Nearly all of North America, except for a portion of eastern Canada and a slice of eastern New England, will experience the partial solar eclipse this week. People who live east of a line running from roughly Quebec City to Montauk Point, New York, will miss out on the solar show, since the sun will set before the dark disc of the moon begins to encroach upon it.

The several hundred thousand people who inhabit parts of Siberia will get a brief view around local sunrise time — but on Friday (Oct. 24), because this part of the eclipse visibility zone is to the west of the International Date Line. So, for this part of the world, the event will begin on the day after it ends! [Partial Solar Eclipse of October 2014: Visibility Maps]

Greatest eclipse, with more than four-fifths of the sun’s diameter covered by the moon, will occur over the Canadian Arctic at M’Clintock Channel, an arm of the Arctic Ocean, which divides Victoria Island from Prince of Wales Island in the territory of Nunavut.

The rest of North America will see less of the sun covered.

For much of Alaska, western and central Canada, the Pacific Northwest and the northern Plains, more than 60 percent of the sun’s diameter will be covered by the passing new moon. For the Southwest and central and southern Plains, the eclipse magnitude diminishes to between 40 and 60 percent. Across the Ohio, Tennessee and Mississippi valleys, maximum eclipse will coincide with sunset, while farther to the east, the moon will only begin its encroachment onto the sun’s disc as it sets.  Read More….

Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, October 23rd

Passions are expressed and emotional loyalties are tested as the Sun, Venus and the Moon each shift into magnetic Scorpio today. We may need to reassess previous commitments since the New Moon is a powerful Solar Eclipse at 5:56 pm EDT, bringing a fresh perspective to old relationships. This eclipse joins sensual Venus to deepen romantic ties while its harmonious trine with spiritual Neptune elevates our thoughts into more metaphysical realms.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Ironically, what you say today might not have as much impact as what you don’t say. Although the Scorpio New Moon Eclipse rattles your 8th House of Intimacy, it’s difficult to ask for your heart’s desire. Your emotions may seem detached from your communication unless you make a conscious choice to include them in your story. Don’t wait for a better moment; if you take a chance and tell a loved one what you want, you might just get what you need.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

When you wish upon a star today, you might be asking for your life to return to a simpler state. However, relationship dynamics may continue to grow a bit out of control. Your interactions with others contain hidden layers of complexity as the Scorpio Solar Eclipse rocks your 7th House of Partners. You might be willing to put up with temporary logistical problems if you can see your way through the entanglement. Just keep moving toward your destination, one step at a time.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

It’s not too late to improve your daily routine, even if it’s an upgrade you should have made much sooner. Today’s Scorpio Solar Eclipse plants the seeds in your 6th House of Habits, indicating sudden changes that can set a series of profound consequences into motion. The potential is greater than you realize, so make every action count as much as possible while you have the planetary magic on your side.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Whether or not you realize it, you are on the edge of a creative breakthrough; however, you must be the one to take the initiative to make it happen. Don’t allow discouragement to settle in today, even if it feels like progress has come to an abrupt standstill. This Scorpio Solar Eclipse polarizes your 5th House of Love and Play, opening a door to exciting opportunities on the romantic front. Even if you are eager with anticipation, remember that good things come to those who wait.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your emotions may be playing a game of tug-of-war with your actions today, and you don’t know which one will emerge a winner. However, your current tendency is to withhold deep feelings while you smile and just do whatever is necessary to keep the peace. But the Scorpio Solar Eclipse falls in your 4th House of Security, making this a tough time if you don’t acknowledge your desires. Protecting your heart seems like a good idea at first, but you might regret it later on. Following your bliss is now your fastest route to happiness.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

It might seem as if you have been quietly planning forever, but now it’s time to start sharing your ideas with others. The Scorpio New Moon Eclipse marks a turning point in your 3rd House of Communication. Don’t hesitate; get your best thoughts out into the open since they don’t do any good running around inside your head. There may not be a better opportunity to initiate passionate discussions about what you want to happen in the next chapter of your life, so seize the moment before it passes. You may be pleasantly surprised by who steps up to support your cause.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You can’t share every feeling that’s important to you now without rocking the stability of your life. The Scorpio Solar Eclipse is shaking your 2nd House of Self-Esteem and possibly stirring up a cloud of self-doubt. Unfortunately, hiding crucial information creates a ripple effect, and the subtle disturbances can quickly build into destructive waves, sending you on a journey of self-discovery. Don’t rush the process; once you better understand your own core values you’ll know exactly what you need to say and do to create positive change.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Turn off the regularly scheduled program and walk into the surrealistic world that awaits you. Today’s New Moon Eclipse occurs in your sign, symbolizing the initiation process you are about to experience. With nebulous Neptune in the picture, you’re probably feeling hopeful about the life-altering possibilities that are right in front of you. But don’t let go of the shadows on a whim; analyze what’s holding you back and why you’re still avoiding change. Once you understand the source of your resistance, transformation is soon to follow.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your boundaries are not as strong as you’d like today, so you might steer away from emotional involvements to safeguard your heart. You may even feel vulnerable and act upon the need to protect yourself from others. Go ahead and retreat to engage in the deep soul-searching brought about by the Scorpio Solar Eclipse, occurring in your 12th House of Spiritual Mystery. There’s no reason to share your feelings with anyone else until you’re certain the time is right. This is one journey best traveled alone.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may be paying rapt attention to what your peers are doing today, as if their current behavior could reveal something crucial about your life. However, the emotionally extreme Scorpio Solar Eclipse agitates your 11th House of Long-Term Goals, making it nearly impossible to know what you might want in a few days. Stop trying to control every aspect of every situation so you come out on top. Focusing on the future is fine as long as you don’t miss out on the magic of the present moment.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Your innate ability to cool your emotions contributes to your air of mystery today and increases your magnetic charm. But you have little patience for playing games now that you want to climb the ladder of success. The Scorpio Solar Eclipse lands in your 10th House of Career, motivating you to concentrate on your professional ambitions. Speak straight from the heart when sharing your plans with your colleagues and watch them line up to be on your team.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

It’s time to take your special brand of logic out of your tool box today and draw a map that shows the path to your dream destination. You might even believe that you can make your amazing fantasies come true now that the Scorpio Solar Eclipse is activating your 9th House of Big Adventure. Start by visualizing whatever you want to do over the upcoming months. Then jot down the critical milestones that you wish to reach along the way. Use this guideline to stay on track as you move toward fulfilling your most creative visions.

New Moon Solar Eclipse Horoscopes for October 2014

New Moon Solar Eclipse Horoscopes for October 2014

Transform your life with this magical Solar Eclipse in Scorpio!

Rick LevineRick Levine on the topics of solar eclipse, scorpio, new moon, moon, eclipse, astrology

The Scorpio New Moon is a yearly reminder that there’s a price to pay when relationships turn serious. However, we have cosmic magic working on our side this time because the New Moon on October 23 is a Solar Eclipse conjoined with Venus, the Goddess of Love.

Passions are expressed and emotional loyalties are tested as the Sun, Venus and the Moon each shift into magnetic Scorpio just hours prior to the eclipse. You may need to reassess previous commitments because this Solar Eclipse brings a fresh perspective to old relationships. The closeness of Venus to the New Moon deepens romantic ties, while her harmonious trine with spiritual Neptune elevates our thoughts into more metaphysical realms.

Don’t be afraid of change. Step willingly into your dreams, because your imagination lays the groundwork for whatever comes next.

Your Eclipse Season Survival Guide

Your Eclipse Season Survival Guide

Navigate these intense periods of personal change

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of moon, eclipse, astrology

 

If there’s one supercharged transit the universe hurls our way to prompt a major life shift, it’s a Solar or Lunar Eclipse. Eclipses are theatrical in a sense because they pack a sudden, powerful, and unforgettable punch in our world … often leaving us breathless!

If you’re wondering how to tell if an eclipse will bode well for you and what general guidelines to observe during eclipse season, then you’ve come to the right place. We’ve already experienced this month’s Lunar Eclipse in Aries on October 8, 2014, and up next is the Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on October 23. So buckle up your eclipse season seatbelt and read on…

First of all, never be afraid of eclipse season — or anything that has to do with Astrology for that matter. There is a misconception that all eclipses are evil omens that will bring on the dark forces. Although it’s true that eclipses can sometimes bring challenges our way, the very opposite can also be true. Life is a continuous cycle of beginnings and endings and we never stay on one end of the spectrum for long. We must grow! And in order to do that, change needs to happen. When we resist the needed change that our souls crave, an eclipse — or any other powerful transit — can seem more intimidating than it really is.

Have no fear

Solar Eclipses and Lunar Eclipses don’t cause bad things to happen and they don’t cause good things to happen. An eclipse in and of itself is a conductor of strong, dynamic energy. Whether it’s a positive or challenging eclipse will depend on your personal chart. Many eclipses have a challenging energy to them — even if good news is on the way. This is because eclipses are about growth. To grow you must uproot a part of your psyche, and sometimes this means saying goodbye to something or someone first.

If the degree of an eclipse makes close contact to one of your personal planets (the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus or Mars), an angle of your chart, or the ruler of an angle of your chart then that eclipse is likely to bring life altering events.

No pain, no gain

Adding to this tightfisted — but highly accurate — approach, you only want to consider the conjunction, opposition and square aspects. These are the aspects that make things happen in your life! Sextile and trine aspects are nice, but an eclipse that only makes soft aspects to your chart may not be as important. Remember, in order to develop in life, tension is required. You can’t build new muscle in your body without breaking down existing muscle fibers first. And the same idea is applied to Astrology and change. Eclipses are incredible at bringing us to “muscle failure” so that we grow even stronger muscles. Remember this!

You may want to consider keeping a special journal specifically for eclipse season. In that journal, write down the degree of any Eclipse that does make a close mathematical link to your horoscope, and then keep track of important life events that happen in the days and weeks around that Eclipse. Why should you do this? It will help you predict your future. Eclipses happen to repeat, in almost exact sign and mathematical degree every 19 years to the day. If you have an important eclipse coming up in your chart and you’re old enough to look back 19 years, you will likely recall vital themes in your life that happened around that time. Pay attention to this trend, because the themes are likely to repeat next time that eclipse falls! This is especially true with eclipses that fall on an angle, an angle ruler or your natal Sun or Moon.

Life’s curveballs

Perhaps the most important suggestion for eclipse season is that, although change may happen to you, you don’t want to be the instigator of any change just yet — if you can help it. Yes, eclipses will bring news of life’s major events such as a birth, death, marriage, divorce, career milestone, move or other significant turning point. And yes, there is often a sweeping transformation in the air that you’ll be forced to address. But the energy during eclipse time is so unstable and supercharged that it’s always best to be in receptive mode if possible. Save important decisions about the information that has come your way until after the eclipse season dust has settled.

Eclipses remind you that life is happening. But at eclipse time, the universe has a way of suddenly altering the rules of the game. It’s your job to go with the flow now. Do your best to take things in stride and understand that the universe has an infinite wisdom. Trust it.
