The New Moon occurring this morning energizes your finances and values sector, bringing fresh energy for taking charge of your material resources, dear Aries. This is a time for making substantial changes to the way you manage money as well as the attitude that drives the ways you attract money and possessions into your life. It is also a fantastic time for taking moments to enhance yourself through earthy, tactile, and comforting endeavors. What makes this New Moon energy unusually intense is the fact that Uranus and Mars both change signs around the same time of the lunation and then form a square to one another. This can be electric and surprising. There can be some frustration now if you feel others are not sharing or respecting your values. There can be a strong desire to break free from restrictions, too. You are in no mood to conform to others’ wishes! Disruptions today might actually lead to an important new perspective or might even introduce new opportunities that you never considered before, so keep this possibility in mind even if things are tense at the moment.
The New Moon that occurs this morning is in your sign, and this brings powerful energy to your life for making extensive improvements to your life, dear Taurus. While it’s not an eclipse or an especially potent New Moon in and of itself, it does occur at a time when Uranus is entering your sign and when Mars and Uranus form a square aspect so that that life can seem over the top right now! Others are taking note of you, recognizing you for your awesome personality, and this motivates you further to make efforts to be the best you can be. Even so, you are experiencing a rebellious or inspired, independent streak that seems to want expression now. This is an opportunity for renewal, and you might choose to seek it through doing something unusual or different. You are breaking out of your shell now! This is a nervy time, so if you want to make changes to your manner or your look, you’ll have the courage during this cycle. Change is on the horizon, and a spiritual revelation or attitude breakthrough can occur that propel you along a new path. There may be unexpected events that free you from confining situations. Today, impulsiveness and blind rebellion can get you in trouble, though. Avoid reacting too quickly if you feel caged in.
The New Moon occurring this morning happens in your soul sector, dear Gemini, marking a period of review, letting go, and recharging your spiritual “batteries” (which can significantly impact your physical energy stores, too). This might align with a form of retreat in a social sense or can merely point to increased soul-searching and the urge to find some level of emotional peace of mind. There is much going on behind the scenes or in the background in your life with this lunation as well as the fact that Uranus is moving into this same sector of your solar chart for an extended stay. Your dreaming world is vivid and intuition exceptionally active at this time. Listen to your inner voice! Now and in coming years, this Uranus transit can shake things up with matters related to your privacy. Things may come to light that help you let go of harmful attachments that have been stunting your emotional growth. Today, watch for impulsiveness but do consider ways to move upwards and onwards. You could be battling some restlessness or discomfort with a past problem re-emerging. You might feel caged in, limited, or restricted by others right now, but it’s also a good time for learning more about yourself which is ultimately empowering.
The New Moon happening this morning activates your sector of friends, teamwork, group associations, and ideals, dear Cancer. These are the areas of your life due for some revamping, and fresh energy is with you for making substantial changes. The power of this New Moon is ramped up due to Uranus’ simultaneous sign change and square to Mars. Emotional honesty, sharing your excitement with friends, and willingness to recognize others as integral to your success and fulfillment – all of these things will help improve existing friendships, faith in yourself, and possibly bring you new allies. This New Moon can stimulate great energy and hopefulness but also a sense that things are moving very quickly. For the most part until 2026, Uranus will be shaking up the way you see your place in the community as well as your connections with friends and associates, and a preview of these themes is happening right now. Today, watch for tension, willfulness, and impulsiveness. Misunderstandings about the depth of a connection could be at the root of some of the frustration.
The New Moon occurring this morning activates and brings power to your sector of career and reputation, dear Leo. While this New Moon doesn’t have the added intensity of an eclipse, it’s a significant lunation nevertheless as it occurs around the time that Uranus and Mars both change signs and then form a square to one another. The New Moon brings new and fresh energy to your professional goals, your career itself, and to your public standing or reputation. It’s the most public time of the year for you – a time when others notice you for your accomplishments. Depending on how you’ve handled your life in the past year, this can be a pleasant or uncomfortable moment! Others’ vision of who you are does impact your life possibly more than you know, and now is a time for understanding the specifics of this. Today, exciting and perhaps disruptive energy is with you. Disagreements or changing perspectives can figure strongly now, possibly pushing you into new territory. A new beginning of sorts and perhaps even a new calling can emerge related to your work. You may be thrust into the spotlight now, or there can be significant happenings with competitors or partners that prompt new approaches to what you do and how you see yourself, too. Through conflict or chaos, even if it’s taking place inside you, you may be able to find a way to put limitations behind you so that a door opens for change.
Responsibilities and even some lack of confidence may have recently limited your ability to truly get out and enjoy life in recent months, dear Virgo. The New Moon occurring this morning is set to change all that! It’s time for a change of routine, whether it’s through travel, exploring new interests, or merely finding more time to explore the world beyond your ordinary activities. You may feel renewed by a new perspective on your life, something philosophical or spiritual that you read or learn, or an adventure that takes you away from mundane routines. This lunation occurs at a time when both Mars and Uranus are changing signs and forming a square aspect to one another, and it’s highly dynamic and possibly electric! New beginnings of far-reaching or long-term ventures are likely now, but changes can be quick. You may experience a spiritual awakening of sorts or a call to see the world, or perhaps even to save it! The desire to take a new course or to travel can come up suddenly as you hunger for new experiences. New interests or opportunities emerging now can prompt an overhaul of your daily routines or a new approach to health and wellness, or vice versa – new work or health outlook can inspire a desire to live life more fully. Work matters can be unusually intense today. If there are tensions surrounding working under a schedule or in a limiting, oppressive environment, then you can feel this acutely now. Try not to blow a fuse today!
The New Moon happening this morning offers you a blast of powerful energy to take charge of your life, dear Libra, particularly related to sharing yourself and your money or possessions with others. It’s time to clear up financial matters with a significant other and/or to handle debts. It’s also an excellent time for becoming more aware of any negative or undermining dependencies you may have on others and on things, too. This influence stirs up your desire for emotional intimacy and closeness with others which can enforce more creative relating patterns, but it might also stimulate your inner frustrations if current relationships are not satisfying your more profound needs. This New Moon occurs just as Uranus moves into Taurus. Mars is about to change signs as well and immediately clashes with Uranus, stimulating a quick need (or desire) for change. You could be feeling caged in, or someone in your life feels confined. New insights can be intensely revealing, particularly about love and intimacy. Avoid pushing too hard, but allow yourself to cross normal thresholds, as you can make great strides towards critical new beginnings. Today, watch for rash decisions.
You possess more courage than usual to break down walls between yourself and others now, dear Scorpio, as the New Moon occurs in your partnership sector this morning and Uranus moves into this same sector today. This New Moon brings you a blast of energy for new beginnings in your relationships. Something about your interactions may be stale, confining, or otherwise stunting your emotional growth, and creative ways of relating are in order now. There can be a new beginning or a chance to start fresh. Today, there’s a whole lot of concentrated and combust energy. A clash of values with a partner may be part of the picture with Mars and Uranus both changing signs and forming a square to one another. Conversations about, with, or on behalf of family can be intense and revealing. An unexpected circumstance or sudden change of attitude can occur and jolt you out of your usual routine. Stronger desires and needs can become intense and in focus now, and it’s important to open yourself up to the need for change but not to rush into anything just yet.
Today’s New Moon pushes you to take charge of your daily routines so that you can better manage your life, dear Sagittarius. This, by extension, puts out the right message to others and improves your relationships. Job offers may arise in the coming weeks, or you could have new priorities and tasks to manage. It’s equally and perhaps even more possible that inner stirrings prompt a new approach to work and health or the desire for something new from your routines. If you’ve been holding on too tightly to a stressful work situation, then the matter may come to a head now. This particular New Moon comes at a changeful time when both Uranus and Mars are entering new signs and challenging one another via a square aspect, adding to the already impulsive energy of the New Moon. This can feel exciting and tense all at once! While inventiveness is a positive side to this energy, watch for rashness. Improvements or other opportunities at or through work can come out of the blue, boosting your confidence. The temptation to break out of monotony or other lifeless aspects of a job is intense. Your working life can bring startling surprises, and you’ll need a little time to adjust to the changes in routine.
Creativity is peaking, and you have the chance to find new and exciting channels for expressing yourself in uniquely creative ways now and in the coming weeks, dear Capricorn. This morning’s New Moon brings entirely fresh and powerful energy into your life, particularly when it comes to romantic relationships and social friendships. This is also a powerful time for creativity and hobbies, as you’ll find that new ideas come to you quite spontaneously now. If you’re currently involved in a creative project, you can benefit from bringing a fresh perspective to the table. Not only is there a New Moon in your sector of heartfelt pursuits today, Uranus enters the same sector of your chart and will visit there, at first off-and-on, for the better part of the next eight years! As well, Mars is on the verge of changing signs and immediately clashes with Uranus once it does. Today, you may find yourself at cross-purposes with someone over money, values, or respect. Or, you could be dealing with erratic elements in your life and surprising events in your relationships. You can also experience creative insights now, mainly relating to money-making prospects. You want to go your own way, but it would be wise to consider the possibility that others are showing you the way towards positive change, too. In fact, you’ll put yourself in the best position if you listen to both the important people in your life and your own intuition.
This morning’s New Moon brings fresh energy for new beginnings in your home, family life, or personal life, dear Aquarius. The mood today is intense, and this can help to bring down normal barriers, and new insights or inner stirrings can be intensely revealing. Avoid pushing too hard, but allow yourself to cross the usual thresholds, as you can make great strides with honesty, respect, and concern. If you want to make changes on the home front, whether it’s literally in your home or with your domestic routines, if it’s about family relationships, or even about your relationship with your inner self, this is the cycle for doing so. You’re likely to feel the need regardless of whether you plan it or not, and it’s about taking charge of your personal life. At the same time, both Uranus (your ruler) and Mars are changing signs, and right after they do, they form a clashing aspect with one another. Mars, in fact, is moving into your sign, making it all the more personal. These combined events present a challenge to make a change. Try to direct excess energy into creative or otherwise positive channels, as today, it can be all too easy to act rashly or impulsively.
The New Moon this morning occurs in your communications and learning sector, dear Pisces, bringing fresh energy for finding new areas of interest, for studies, and for making or reviving contacts. There is an intensity to the day that tends to break through barriers of unfamiliarity. As a result, you can more effectively get closer to people who you might not yet know very well, or you may try on new approaches to friendships, projects, communications, and personal interests which lead to new beginnings. This particular New Moon packs a real punch because both Uranus and Mars change signs around the same time, and they’re heading into a clashing square aspect. This combination can instigate quick changes, upsets, or surprises today. The atmosphere can be agitated, and you can feel a lot of pressure to make decisions or to take action prematurely. An issue surrounding values, money, or questions of ownership can be in focus for you. You can also be temperamental about whether others value and respect you. Watch that you don’t jump to conclusions now, but consider, too, that change may be just what you need now. And, it can be a breath of fresh air!
Creative to an extreme, you are also highly intelligent and possess strong business savvy. Many of your ideas are very marketable. Somewhat unconventional in thought, you quickly become bored with routine thinking. However, that is on a mental level. You can have a few stubborn habits yourself, and when your mind is made up, it can be difficult to steer you off course. Famous people born today: George Lucas, David Byrne, Dante, Cate Blanchett.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The Moon is in its Balsamic phase in your Solar Return chart, marking this year the end of an important cycle, or stage of growth, in your life. You might take more downtime than usual, and this is natural, even good for you. This is a year when you are likely closing important projects or “chapters” in your life. This is an important year for reorienting yourself – discovering what you want, and identifying what you need to do in order to move forward more positively.
With Mercury conjunct Uranus in your Return chart, though, there are bound to be some surprises in store. Your thinking is more clever and original this year, and there may be unexpected opportunities for travel (or at least “armchair” travel), as well as new and perhaps unusual friendships. You are able to come up with original solutions to existing problems and brand new ideas more readily this year. Unusual, sudden, or eye-opening connections to younger people are likely to figure. This is a good year for projects involving technology or New Age topics. You may find more opportunities to attend meetings and other organized group activities, to communicate online, and to take part in activities involving computers, scientific projects, or metaphysics. Your intuition is strong, and insights seem to come from “out of the blue”. Original, creative ideas are easy to come by this year.
Exchanging ideas, intellectual pursuits, and learning are all exciting at this time. You’re expressing yourself clearly and you’re in a great position to instruct others. There is a pronounced ability to order your thoughts and ideas and to recognize patterns, putting you in an excellent place to work on designs. You might thoroughly enjoy making plans, lists, and connections this year.
It is easier than ever to express your individuality in a manner that is true to you this year. This can be a year when bursts of restlessness, rebellion, and impatience figure prominently, however. You have a tendency to take risks and to act on sudden impulses without considering consequences. You assert your will and individuality powerfully, and you are ready to fight for freedom. There may be changes in work schedules, or life’s circumstances could challenge you in such a way that you need to change your goals or actions. This can also be a time when you tend to resist others and challenge them if they are trying to hold you back. Arguments and confrontations are likely. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, you might be able to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.
Idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface this year. Making connections with others from different backgrounds may figure strongly. Widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the better good this year.
You are determined in the year ahead, and when you’re focused, you can move mountains in important areas of your life. It’s a powerful year for making lifestyle changes but you may do battle with variable energy levels and wasting time on anger. Watch also for acting out of impatience or trying to cut corners frequently, which can put unnecessary pressure on you. Your love or social life can be eventful, largely due to some restlessness. This can be a wonderful time for learning and connecting with people who inspire you.
2018 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when you find it natural and easy to enjoy life and other people. The focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure than you are in other years. It’s likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a favorable year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out and connect but avoid scattering your energies.
2019 will be a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to pay special attention to practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are often not formed in a Four personal year. However, it can be a wonderful year for building, development, and laying a solid foundation for future successes. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
Today’s energies are complicated this morning for practical affairs, dear Aries. On the one hand, there can be a compelling idea blossoming now, and on the other, a keen awareness of its flaws. While discouraging at first, ultimately it’s for the best. Look to make adjustments and necessary edits. Keep in mind that tomorrow is a New Moon which can have the effect of redirecting your energy, anyhow. You are capable of real, useful solutions to problems right now. While issues of money or ownership can be in focus this morning, obstacles faced now can point the way to significant refinements. You are a little more sensitive to criticism but given time to recollect yourself, it might serve to motivate you to move along a more authentic path. Tomorrow is the New Moon, so do your best to relax and center yourself today.
There is more clarity, purpose, and authority in your manner now with the Sun in your sign, dear Taurus, and people are drawn to you, perhaps turning to you to take the lead more often than not. Don’t let vague worries or fears dominate today, however, with the Sun and Saturn in challenging aspect this morning. Somebody might test your belief system early today, whether this is a confrontation or through behavior that distresses you about the human condition in general. Try to focus on positive points in addition to the flaws that you are seeing a little more strongly now. It’s a little too easy to become discouraged when others fail to live up to your ideals. Nevertheless, you may also choose to learn from your differences and feel wiser as a result. Energy may be on the low side but this can work in your favor since it’s the day before a New Moon in your sign, and unwinding makes sense so that you can center yourself. It’s not the time for making sweeping decisions or for pursuing your personal goals aggressively. Take a break just for now if you can.
This morning, there can be more clarity on an issue, dear Gemini, but possibly some worry or disappointment. You are more sensitive to hidden and subtle aspects of situations and interactions, and you can be quite introspective today. You may be dealing with fears of surrendering control with emotions or money in recent months since Saturn has entered your solar eighth house, and if so, challenges can emerge today, particularly over jointly held finances and resources or emotional matters. It will be helpful to learn to understand the ways you might withhold yourself so that you can eventually learn to lead a more mindfully committed life. Worrying about flaws in a system is only going to hold you back from being productive. Try not to let personal problems distract you and approach problems one at a time, and step by step. Keep in mind that a New Moon will occur tomorrow morning, suggesting it’s best to let your intuition work for you now.
There may be a bit of a hump to get over this morning, dear Cancer, or a disappointment to face. You might be feeling very confident and idealistic one minute, but then something discourages you. New plans can hit snags or roadblocks now. Worries about a relationship or demands from others can be distracting. While you should certainly address concerns, avoid allowing these things take away too much energy and focus. As the day progresses, you’re more likely to feel empowered and on top of your life. Fortunately, tonight you’re more able to unwind and let problems go, and this is particularly useful with a New Moon occurring tomorrow morning. Don’t speed ahead just yet. Instead, gather your thoughts and formulate your plans.
You can be primarily focused on career, goals, and long-term life plans these days, dear Leo. Tomorrow, a New Moon will occur that brings a new beginning related to any of these matters. Today, you may attract some critique or encounter a small roadblock, and while you may benefit from speaking with a trusted authority about your plans, be discriminating about who you let in right now. Responsibilities to your work and possibly minor health matters can feel a little daunting when you’re a bit more sensitive than usual as you may be this morning. They are not holding you back from growing, although it might seem that way for now. It’s possible that you feel a bit bogged down with routine matters, which takes away from using your talents to their utmost. This is not the time for taking emotional risks. In fact, today is ideal for gathering your energy and focus. The day progresses with far greater ease, and you might find nice opportunities to center yourself.
With the Sun in your solar ninth house and a New Moon occurring in this sector tomorrow morning, dear Virgo, you have a stronger desire to communicate directly and openly or to be upfront with your beliefs and wants. Today, however, there may be something critical or discouraging to deal with in this regard as Saturn challenges the Sun this morning. While this can be frustrating, the clarity coming to a situation now can make it worth it. As the day progresses, you’re more likely to let go of tension and stress, as you focus on broader, more positive goals and dreams. Tomorrow’s New Moon may very well help direct you along these lines, but today, it’s better to wind down and center yourself than forge ahead with something new or extraordinarily ambitious.
This morning, you might become aware of a roadblock that requires attention, dear Libra. Unresolved matters from the past can surface early today in your close relationships. Powerful emotions can come bubbling up to the surface, and these can revolve around such intense matters as commitment, loyalty, and honesty. As you deal with these issues in others, you can come to a deeper understanding of your own motives. Pressure eases as the day advances, primarily because you’re less inclined to take things as seriously! The New Moon occurring tomorrow morning will redirect your attention and interests, perhaps presenting a new path to follow. Today, take things easy and allow your intuition to kick in.
There can be a lot of focus on a relationship these days, dear Scorpio. Keep in mind that there’s not a whole lot of room for emotions this morning, however, and while you can come to a more precise picture on a technical level of a situation, the more human aspects may not be accounted for in decisions made now. There is slightly discouraging energy as the Sun and Saturn form a tense aspect, but it’s about facing reality about something or slowing yourself down long enough to fix mistakes and not something to take too personally. Keeping the bigger picture in mind can help you to rise above minor blockages and obstacles. As well, a New Moon will occur tomorrow morning, and a new direction will begin to come into view.
You can have a strong desire to put your thoughts and things into order these days, dear Sagittarius, but this morning, there can also be some pressure to come up with answers that you’re not ready to deal with or provide. Watch carefully for clues on which plans or projects need refinement. While on the surface of things it may not seem as if you are accomplishing much at the moment, you may be laying down important groundwork or simply taking a pause that refreshes. If you experience delays today, try to treat them as welcome opportunities to review and reevaluate matters in your life. Practical responsibilities that need immediate attention can be a brief blockage that might even strengthen your ambition. Keep in mind that there’s a New Moon tomorrow, making now a good time to wind down and center yourself in preparation for a new cycle.
This is a generally good time for sharing your affections or creations, dear Capricorn, but a Sun-Saturn angle this morning suggests the possibility of a small obstacle, critique, chilly audience, or another form of discouragement that slows you down. Flaws in plans can be more noticeable. It’s better to work on ideas to fix and edit mistakes and oversights now or to simply allow problems to fix themselves as a New Moon tomorrow will have a way of redirecting your interests or energies. Look for ways to release yourself from the pressures of your life as the day advances, at least temporarily, so that you can center yourself and tap into your intuition.
This morning, you can be a little stiff or tense, dear Aquarius, as the Sun and Saturn form a minor challenging aspect. You could feel some reservation about sharing yourself creatively. Decisions can be agonizing, but it would help if you were to consider that you’re not ready to make them! In fact, a New Moon tomorrow morning will begin a new cycle, making today time for letting go and not starting new initiatives. Make adjustments and refinements instead of sweeping changes now for best results. Confidence will return once your responsibilities are behind you. Use this time to become clearer about what is expected of you, and what you can expect from yourself. Emotions settle down as the day advances, although you’re still likely to have a lot to do.
This is a generally strong time for sharing your ideas and opinions, learning, and connecting, dear Pisces, but your ideas or beliefs may be challenged, or there may be blocks due to poor planning, bad timing, or other delays this morning. There can be challenges tending to both social and work matters, which can both demand a lot from you now. Details count most this morning, so do your best to get them right so that you can move forward more freely. Decidedly more positive energy is with you as the day advances. Your sights are set high, and with responsibilities handled, you are more inclined to enjoy yourself. As well, keep in mind that a New Moon will occur tomorrow morning, redirecting you along a new path or arming you with a take-charge attitude. Today, it’s better to conserve your energy in preparation for this cycle.
Wowza! This is a monumental week in every way possible. On Tuesday Uranus, the planet of freedom, change, and excitement will move into Taurus for the first time in 84 years! On the same day there will be a New Moon in Taurus, making it impossible for you to avoid reform when it comes to what you value in matters of the heart. There are likely to be massive reversals in love — and it can go in either direction. Adding to the mix, the cosmic lovers Mars and Venus both change signs this week as well. On Wednesday Mars enters Aquarius, giving off a detached “friends with benefits” vibe when it comes to your sex life. Ironically, however, Venus enters Cancer and says, “I want that comfy, cozy, nurturing emotional connection.” As you can see, love is all over the place this week. With Uranus leading the way, we would expect nothing less.
If you’re completely single, then you’re probably only interested in keeping it casual when it comes to matters of the heart. Your ruling planet, Mars, will enter Aquarius — one of the most non-committal signs of the zodiac. You might have multiple offers for sex and feel that it’s time to have fun, experiment and just do you. On the other hand, it’s also possible that this attitude of yours is more of a defense mechanism than anything else. Are you running away from your true feelings for someone? Hmmm… If you’re in a relationship, then after Saturday you and your love might want to spend more time nesting together at home. If you’re newly dating someone, it’ll be a great time to introduce your new sweetie to your family. They’ll think you’re adorbs together!
Everything changes this week for you Taurus. EVERYTHING! On Tuesday, Uranus, the planet of awakenings will move into your sign for the first time in 84 years. This is truly remarkable energy that will have you buzzing for years to come. A New Moon will also fall in your sign on the very same day. You might feel a surge of restless energy that demands expression. You may also know that when it comes to your love life, it’s time for a major change. Major. Are you moving in an entirely new direction? Definitely. Which direction that is, however, remains to be seen. One thing is certain: whatever you think it will be, it won’t. Uranus loves to mess around that way.
Unusual experiences and new adventures are calling out to your heart in a way that you can no longer deny. As a result, you might need to adjust your expectations in matters of the heart — especially if there’s someone in your life who just can’t match up to where it is you want to go next. Still, while it’s true that you can’t always be on the same page with your lover, if you’re on two entirely different planets then you might need to re-evaluate whether or not this relationship is still workable. You simply must go after the desire to expand your horizons now, Gemini … with or without your mate.
If you’re single and ready to mingle, this week you’re sizzling hot! After Tuesday you’ll feel like your social life is buzzing with invitations, possibilities, and complete excitement. You’ll have amazing opportunities to meet new and fascinating people, at least one who you’ll feel an intense electric pull toward. The company you keep overall is likely to be filled with people who are more eccentric or visionary. In fact, the weirder they are, the more attracted you’ll be. In a relationship? Although your partner will feel more attracted to you, you might have some financial obstacles to get through together. Don’t worry; you will.
You’ll feel a surge of motivation to work on your relationship this week, Leo. It’s all thanks to Mars, the planet of action and drive, moving into your partnership sector on Wednesday. With this fiery planet here, you can look forward to a couple of scenarios. For starters, you will find yourself more interested in passionately connecting with your mate. Although it is possible that you’ll want to stir up trouble and initiate arguments, if this happens it’s only because you’re truly motivated to push past whatever problems you might have and get right to what matters: the make-up sex.
If you’re single, this week might turn into a game-changer. On Saturday Venus, the planet of love and harmony, will move into the most social area of your chart — the 11th house. Venus remains here through June 13, and during this stretch of time you might actually find success when it comes to the endlessly frustrating world of internet dating. You’re tired of not making any kind of emotional connection on all of those first dates that go nowhere. The good news is that now you can rest easy knowing that this will change. Take a leap of faith and meet someone new — you won’t regret it.
Your love life might turn into something that resembles a steamy romance novel! On Wednesday Mars will move into your 5th House of Romance, Pleasure and Passion, making certain that now, your top priority is making the most of a sexy opportunity with someone you can’t get enough of. If you’re completely single, you may suddenly find yourself being pursued by someone who makes it clear they think you’re totally hot. If you’re in a relationship, then the sex between you and your lover is about to hit a level that will make you tremble. In a good way, of course!
Oh boy Scorpio … are you ready for your love life to be dramatically changed? Well, ready or not, here it comes! On Tuesday Uranus, the planet of instability and chaos but also revolution, will move into your partnership sector for the first time in 84 years. Yes, this will be a life-altering time in your life where anything and everything between you and your love will change. You might start to feel an itch that simply must be scratched. A desire for something — or someone — different. If you’re completely single, you might suddenly meet someone who turns your world upside down. Wow!
Your mouth might get you into trouble. On Wednesday Mars, the natural ruler of your romance sector, will move into your communication sector and will stay here for an extended period of time. As Mars settles into this part of your chart it’s possible that you’ll say something to your lover without fully thinking it through. You might be excited about conveying your thoughts to your lover, and that’s great. If, however, you have a problem to work through, then you might not come across in expressing yourself with much tact or consideration for your partner’s feelings. Single? You’ll have no problem approaching someone who catches your eye and initiating a conversation. Good for you!
Boom chicka boom! Oh boy Capricorn, get ready for everything — and I do mean everything — to change when it comes to matters of the heart. If you are single and the type of person who is convinced that you don’t need or want love, guess what? The universe is literally about to hit you over the head with someone who will drastically shift your perspective. Without having any control over it, you might suddenly find your heart opening up. Is that really so bad? Come on Cappy … the universe wants you to know that sometimes it’s OK to throw caution to the wind. Especially when it comes to your love life.
This week you get back into the driver’s seat in your life, which is a fabulous place to be! Mars, the planet of assertive energy, will enter Aquarius on Wednesday and remains here for months to come — an unusual stretch of time. For now, this will be a positive time where you’re feeling sexy, in your power, and have the ability to get whatever — and whomever — you want in your life. If you’re in a relationship, the passion will be kicked up a notch or two between you. If you are single, you’re oozing sexy vibes right now. People are noticing.
Love is all around you, Pisces. Do you see it? Do you feel it? Don’t worry — very soon you will. On Saturday Venus will move into your romance sector for the first time in a year. Venus remains in this part of your chart through June 13, and during this time you’ll have an amazing opportunity to nurture a brand-new romantic relationship with someone who literally makes you feel like home. The sense of familiarity and safety you’ll feel with this person will be uncanny. Trust it, Pisces. It’s real and beautiful. In a relationship? There might be baby news on the way.
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.
5/13 ~ Mercury (your thinking) ~conjunct~ Uranus (the Awakener):
It is said that this energy depends on your “normal mental speed” which is not the same as intelligence. If you are naturally quick mentally, then you will be downloading more than usual during this initiation. Uranus acts as a Lightning Rod that strikes and briefly illuminates an area of your life, in this case, Aries, a new, clean slate for one and all. Ah-ha moments will lead to more freedom and independence, but only to the degree that you can maintain them yourself. If you are in like-hearted circles, the conversations could be really stimulating, unlocking perceptions across the board. If you are not naturally quick mentally, then this will be helpful for you as you are more likely to experience awakenings and connections to your own intuition that help strengthen it within. The Shadow side to this energy is being over-sensitive and jumping to conclusions. Test & Ground your insights before hardwiring them into your Being in any way. Over-taxed nervous system is widely available for all, so try to connect with Mother Earth often. Whatever gets zapped (loosened) can thus be moved to the compost pile. Whatever gets illuminated (becomes conscious) is to be further investigated for merit, but valuable nonetheless. Keep records of ah-ha moments as you won’t be able to immediately act on all of them at the same time and, those you cannot (at this time) often turn into nuggets of gold in your future.
URANUS ENTERS TAURUS
MARS SQ URAN
5/16 ~ Mars (action) ~square~ Uranus (freedom):
This is the “Rebel” energy – what’s your “cause”? If you are clear about your own authentic Truth & Purpose, then this energy is refreshing and uplifting. You acknowledge that change is necessary (and inevitable) and you co-create with this energy to transform your current life. This is a rebirth energy too and being “reborn” is never easy. Worth it – but not easy. However, if you are NOT clear about who you are and what you’re capable of, this energy shines a light on that aspect of your life which you instinctively already know needs an overhaul but for whatever reason you are still holding on to the old habits/patterns. Unwilling or unable to embrace change at this time, you only increase the feeling of being restricted by external energies. Your life is a direct reflection of what’s going on inside you. How’s it lookin’? Check your ego, recommit to your Truth and remember that change is GOOD! And if you don’t go voluntarily (read: consciously), then you’ll get dragged to the new level, kicking and screaming and you’ll be so exhausted when you get there that you may miss the beauty in evolving to the next level. (This IS what you’ve been working toward, correct?) Remember, conscious, effective action creates freedom.
MERC TRI SAT
5/18 ~ Mercury (your thinking) ~trine~ Saturn (structure & organization):
This energy is good for deep thinking. You are sharp and your standards are high because you are in ‘strategy mode’. This is a more solitary energy though, so communications with others may be hampered a bit because it is time for you to hold your own, at some new level. It’s time to focus on the details that hold the big dream together, all the little things that make the grand vision work. Some respect that attention to detail while others may consider it nit-picky but it is what the energy supports at this time so don’t worry if others don’t understand at this time. By the same token, you may also feel a little overwhelmed by the many “little things” that cannot be denied or delayed and thus a sense of urgency to get it all done. Beware of a tendency toward pessimism, depression or overwhelm. Try to stay focused on all the blessings that you do have and all that you have accomplished instead of what’s still on the list of things to do (in life). This energy is not intended to make you feel bad about all the things left yet to do, but encourage you to begin the necessary steps for manifesting your dreams. This energy just makes you focus on the practical side of manifesting. Clear the debris, and begin to lay a new, clean, solid foundation beneath your goals. Saturn gets you present to the necessary steps and Mercury helps you think clearly.
VEN SEXT URAN
5/19 ~ Venus (relationships, love & money) ~sextile~ Uranus (clarity & inspiration):
This energy, thanks to Uranus, activates a certain spark of electricity in the air. New relationships will have an unusual aspect to them and old ones can break-to-realign in a positive, even fun way with this energy. No monotonous routine, humdrum people or boring collaborations with this one. Use it to access your unique genius and deep well of creativity and then share if you can, with other like-hearted Souls. Take advantage of this energy to tap into areas you may not have realized were available to you before. Keep it light and upbeat; socialize and enjoy the experience of different people or new activities. Keep in mind, however, any relationships begun this week may not be based on qualities needed for long term survival. It is more a time to enjoy the people and experiences that pass through at this time and accept this gift!
A lot of people have been talking about “The Event” that is supposedly coming. Indeed there is big change in the air, but the feeling I get about “the Event” (it’s always capitalized!) is that it’s like waiting for “the Aliens” to come and rescue us, or waiting for the great Solar Flare to enlighten us. We are alive right now – we are multidimensional – we are powerful beyond our current knowing – and we are going through a deep process of embodying our deepest Soul essence, which is why we’ve been clearing, releasing and filling for so many years. This waiting for an event to save us or shift us is not in integrity with us Human beings living in our power! If we need or want change in our lives it is up to us to create it. We need to walk our talk like never before. Treat one another with kindness and compassion,and especially stop judging and criticizing ourselves and others!
I tuned in and asked my Soul family – Arcuturians and the Vastness of Being – for some guidance on this issue of expectation of a Big Event – now lined up for summer of 2018 during the eclipse cycle in July and August. Here is what they have to say (I include a few of my own comments in italics). Take what resonates and leave the rest behind.
You have been going through a “slow” unfoldment of the shift, which reached a turning point in the beginning of 2013. The frequency has been accelerating of late, like an energetic tsunami, dismantling structures in people’s lives, which can be seen in the global picture and in the local picture.
Many people are experiencing sudden change in their lives and many others are looking around them with feelings of disassociation, a dreamlike quality of floating within structures that feel like they are dissolving – maybe not actually dissolving in physical reality, but there is an aspect of dissolution taking place as one’s ability to stay attached to the way things have been begins to dissipate. (So it’s actually our attachment that is dissolving, giving us the feeling of walking through a dream at times.) This non-attachment will serve you well as you expand into the moment of now.
You find that you have difficulty projecting yourself into the future when making plans and you can’t remember what you did yesterday, let alone this morning. You are realizing your place of focus is in the moment of now – the present moment truly being the only “reality” there is. Of course you need to plan ahead a little bit, but you find that structures of daily life are loosening. Plans made will most likely be changed as all flows together organically. Even in the structure of corporate life, if you allow plans to shift, you will find an even better grouping of cooperative energies and an ability to accomplish tasks in a more fluid way with little effort. The difficulty may lie, when working with others, in other people’s inability to let go and allow the flow. But this is simply Humanity waking up, growing up, becoming sovereign co-creators. We all “awaken” in our own time and as we co-create and flow with the change, even the most resistant will begin to experience a feeling of release, like taking off a shoe that is too tight, when plans change, shift and realign.
As far as changes in the future, of course there will be change. It is part of a grand re-structuring of the way humanity lives on this planet. Sometimes it will be messy, but that also depends on people’s ability to let go and allow freedom and joy to enter in. Within the falling apart is a feeling of freedom.
Many people at this time are clearing out their homes, purging the accumulation of stuff and releasing the energetic clogging that comes with holding onto things from the past. The preparation for change and freedom is happening organically. All anyone needs do is listen to their hearts and make choices that feel expansive instead of restrictive. It is a paradox, living in service to others and practicing listening to our hearts and doing what feels best for us, but it all lines up in a harmonious blending of co-creation.People have been clearing their outer world and their inner world.
We will not attach a timeline to any change because it is not possible to do so. Just know that you have been preparing and continue to prepare by doing what feels right to you at any given time and as long as you can guide yourself into love, and grow the love within you, fear will dissipate along with the structures that no longer serve your highest good.
You (Humanity) are embodying your multidimensionality incrementally, embodying your unique Soul energy and Soul consciousness. This is changing your physical body as well as your outer physical world. As you cooperate and co-create with one another, you will thrive more and more. So ride the wild surf and love one another. Waiting for something to happen is not the path of empowerment. Living with integrity, in service to others, practicing compassion and embodying appreciation for all you experience opens your heart and your life.
Leilah and the Vastness of Being
May will hopefully be a gentler month than the crazy emotional dodgem car ride that was April.
Last month we had both Pluto and Saturn go retrograde, while Chiron changed signs moving into Aries after 7 years in Pisces. This trio created a feeling like someone continually pushing you under water while you’re simultaneously being squeezed by a vice. On top of this, we had Monday’s Full Moon in Scorpio. Since then then we’ve started to feel some relief and release as the intensity of all April’s movements starts to ease.
If you have any old wounds, old triggers, shadows yet to be fully owned, old issues around father/men/the masculine or stability/security, you may have experienced those flaring up strongly over the past few weeks.
Journal Prompt: Take some time to write about anything that keeps flaring up. Ask: What is this emotion/situation/health issue trying to teach me? Why do I keep pushing away xyz? What would it mean to allow/let in abc?
Globally and collectively we can feel the showreel is running out of tape. It’s like that last episode on Seinfeld where one of them say a joke and the others don’t laugh “We’ve done that one already.” Oh yeah.
The momentum that the old world was running on is done. From personal and family karmic cycles needing to get wrapped up and closed, to the exposure of global elite circles spilling out for all to see, it’s a time when the theatre ushers are escorting everyone out: “It’s time to go find yourselves a new movie.” Meanwhile the curtain has been pulled back by the cleanup crew revealing the truth behind the flashy show.
So here we are in this odd time of truth. Odd because it simultaneously brings up feelings of liberation, freedom, grief, depression, connection and isolation. So many people are going through changes that it can feel like we are all in our little bubbles, doing our best to get air when we can in between dunks. Your usual habit of being there for others may not be possible while you tend to yourself. Likewise your usual support circle may be tired out from their own current goings on.
We take it in turns to do what we can. Some of you may be full of energy creating new initiatives and projects- new systems and structures need to be in place as the old collapses around us. If you have energy to spare look around to see if there is someone who needs your help be it a phone call to check on a friend, a donation of food or clothing, or just listening to someone who needs to talk.
How are you feeling? ????❤️
The Moon spends the day in steady Taurus and is Balsamic, with the New Moon set to occur in the sign tomorrow morning. Early today, Mercury forms a semi-square with Neptune and we may not be seeing things clearly. Technical facts can be glossed over at this time.
However, as the day advances, we seek out clarity. The Sun in minor dynamic aspect to Saturn suggests some wrestling with reality, which we can turn into a positive through attention to detail or hard work. However, there can be some low moods or lack of gratitude happening now.
The Moon is Balsamic today with a New Moon occurring tomorrow, suggesting it’s better to wind ourselves down than start brand new ventures. It’s an appropriate time to tie up loose ends and reflect on recent events.
The Moon is traveling through comfy Taurus today. Eat something you love. Have a second serving.
We are motivated by the desire for serenity, security, peace, and comfort. The Moon is at her most sensual and constant in Taurus. Our basic impulses are to relax, resist change, and “stop to smell the roses”. Life slows down a little, and we get comfortable. We may also be inclined to stubbornness and materialism under this influence.
The Moon in Taurus generally favors the following activities: Substantial and material actions that yield solid results. Financial activities, and those involving personal possessions, applying for a loan, beginning a potentially long-term relationship, music, home decor.
