Fall Love Horoscopes 2013

As the temperature drops, your love life could heat up…

Now that it’s Autumn, you’re probably craving long, cozy walks with your sweetheart. Preferably in the early evening — just when it gets cool enough for the two of you to have another excuse to snuggle in tight. Whether you’re flying solo and dreaming of romance or, if you’ve already got your hands full with someone you love, this Fall there’s certainly enough astrology happening to offer something for everyone. Between eclipse season, another Mercury Retrograde and a fascinating trend with the love planet Venus starting in November, you simply must be “in the know” about what the stars have in store for you … and your heart this fall! Read on to learn how hot your fall is really going to get!

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

This fall, you will certainly have a focus on partnership. It all begins on October 18 when a Lunar Eclipse falls in your sign offering you significant emotional fulfillment, or illumination about a personal relationship. You might feel as if you’ve found your spiritual equal if you’re newly dating someone thanks to a gorgeous trine between Venus in Sagittarius to Uranus in Aries just a couple days earlier on October 16. By December 7, your ruling planet, Mars, will enter your 7th House of Partnership for an unusual, extended visit. In fact, once we get to 2014, he’ll turn retrograde and then your relationship rehab will begin in earnest! During the last days of fall however, you and your mate might find that you’re quarreling more than usual. Ask yourself if you’re stirring up the pot just to keep things interesting or if there’s really a deeper issue at hand. Be honest with yourself.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You are about to enter one of the most glorious, pleasurable cycles possible for love and sex, Taurus. Are you ready? Mars, the planet that rules your libido, will enter your 5th House of Romance and Play on October 15 where he’ll remain until December 7. This once-in-two-year-cycle will offer you an opportunity to frolic around — or fool around — with someone special. Enjoy more date nights and entertainment — you deserve it! A notable Solar Eclipse will fall in your 7th House of Partnership on November 3 and for those of you attached Taureans who feel stuck in a stale relationship, there might be an opportunity for a new start.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

This time around, Mercury Retrograde will only affect your love life if you’re wrapped up in a tricky office romance. From October 21 to November 10 Mercury will backtrack through your 6th House of Work and yes, miscommunication is possible in this area of your life. This might be a good time to keep work and play separate — at least temporarily. Thankfully, love potential will be quite exciting this Fall for you! On October 7 until November 5 Venus will tour your 7th House of Partnership and any Gemini’s who are already attached will enjoy an extra harmonious time (even with Mercury Retrograde)! Then, on December 7, sexy Mars will slide into your 7th House of True Love offering a stimulating (and extra-long) cycle when it comes to dating and having fun in the bedroom!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You’re floating on cloud nine these days, Cancer. In fact, you may feel as if you’ve got the world by its tail thanks to lucky Jupiter touring your sign. Blessings are likely to extend to your love life, especially as we get to the gorgeous Solar Eclipse on November 3. This eclipse will light up your 5th House of Expression and help breathe new life into your romantic happenings. Saturn is also in this part of your chart, but will enjoy the support of Jupiter in your sign as well as the eclipse energy to help bring stable, enduring love potential your way. In fact, Venus will enter your 7th House of Committed Partnerships on November 5 for an unusually long stay that will last until March of 2014! You can certainly count on revisions in the love department (most likely with a happy ending). With Mercury also retrograde in your 5th House of True Love from October 21 to November 10 it’s possible that this new love energy will arrive from an old flame who wants to start over. Be open to the possibilities.

Leo (July. 23 – Aug. 22)

You’ll kick things off with such heat this fall you might not want to believe the season is actually changing! Mars, the planet of assertive drive — including your sex drive — will be in your sign until October 15, allowing you to work your “sexy” factor. You’ll notice plenty of courage and stamina to pursue anyone who’s made your heart skip a beat. Love gets even better between October 7 and November 5 as Venus enters your 5th House of Love and Play. Expect romantic prospects at every turn. If, by some chance you’re still single, a gorgeous New Moon in your 5th house on December 2 should put an end to lonely nights once and for all.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

Fall will definitely be your season for love! Whether you’re single or attached, romantic prospects will surely intensify. The headline news is that Venus will enter Capricorn and your 5th House of True Love on November 5 and will not leave this area of your chart until March 6, 2014! Why the unusually long visit? Venus will turn retrograde leading to a very special focus on matters of the heart for you. The retrograde won’t actually happen until the Winter Solstice, but during the fall you’ll want to pay close attention to developments in your love life. It will be the situations that happen in this fall that you’ll be revising your approach to come winter. On November 7 you and someone you’re casually dating may decide to take your relationship to the next level. On November 15 Venus will cozy up to Pluto and you can surely anticipate a fated love connection if single. If attached, sparks will FLY with you and your mate!

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

A telling Lunar Eclipse on October 18 will illuminate the status of a close personal relationship. The truth is that you and your partner might no longer be on the same wavelength in many areas and have already spent time and energy trying to reconcile these differences. At eclipse time you’ll know whether or not your efforts have been in vain. Relief is possible however if communication lines are clear. This is due to a helpful trine between Venus in your 3rd House of Communication to Uranus, now in your 7th House of Partnerships. A mutual agreement about changing the paradigm of your relationship to one that’s less traditional might be exactly what you need to salvage it. The Full Moon in Taurus on November 17 will illuminate your 8th House of Intimacy. Will the events that transpire this fall lead you to build a wall even higher than before or will they allow you to trust and reveal yourself completely? Only you can decide.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

This fall you can expect an “all or nothing” approach to love. Venus will be in your sign until October 7 prompting you to have a mesmerizing effect on anyone you want to attract your way. Mercury will turn retrograde in Scorpio however and from October 21 to November 10 you might stumble on your words more than usual. This could prove to be tricky if you hope to have an important conversation with someone special. If a significant decision or vital dialogue must happen between the two of you try to time it as close as possible to November 7 when you’ll have the support of Venus in your 3rd House of Communication at a friendly sextile to Neptune in your 5th House of Love and Play. Even if Mercury is retrograde at least on this day, your lover will be more forgiving of any communication mishaps. The main event however, will be a Solar Eclipse in your sign on November 3. If you’re ready to take a relationship to the next level you’ll push ahead with unstoppable force.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Matters of the heart will become a strong focus for you this fall once we enter eclipse season. On October 18 a Lunar Eclipse in Aries will light up your 5th House of True Love. A casual (possibly torrid) affair may end during this time — particularly if things have been rocky. Alternatively, if you’re dating someone new and your feelings are growing stronger by the day, this eclipse might prompt you to make an emotionally open declaration of love. Venus will help you since she’ll grace your sign from October 7 — November 5. During this time you’ll look more beautiful than ever and will enjoy astounding confidence. This can’t help but translate into greater powers of attraction. Lucky you: you’re sexy and you know it!

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

Your love life might seem quiet as we begin the fall season but don’t be fooled — there’s plenty of activity in store. It all begins on November 5 when Venus enters Capricorn. Typically this is a cycle where you’ll enjoy greater powers of attraction and will also look and feel more beautiful. The fascinating difference between this year’s visit of Venus to Capricorn however is that Venus will turn retrograde (on December 21) and will not leave Capricorn until March 6, 2014! This Fall you must take careful notes about what transpires for you in matters of the heart as well as your overall concept of love. While everything might seem extra special now, you’ll need to practically re-assess where you are in terms of love come winter. There are gorgeous indications this fall however, that you’ll be in a happy place when it comes to romance. On November 7 Venus will be at a gorgeous angle to Neptune helping you open up to a spiritual connection with your mate. Then, on November 15 Venus will be conjunct Pluto making it clear that when it comes to love, you’ll settle for nothing less than absolute intensity! The Full Moon in Taurus on November 17 will lead to an emotional climax between you and someone special.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

You might start off on a rough patch this fall when it comes to partnership. If you’re in a committed relationship, you’ll feel this most. Mars, the planet of action but also strife, will continue to move through your 7th House of Partnerships until October 15. After this date you’ll notice fewer arguments between you and your mate but until then, expect plenty of heat. Mercury will move retrograde from October 21 until November 10 and since Mercury rules your 5th house of Romance it’s possible that you’ll experience a few miscommunications during this time. Since Mercury will retrograde through your 10th House of Reputation, be careful about being the subject of salacious gossip. On December 17 a Full Moon in your 5th house will bring an emotionally charged situation between you and your lover to light. For better or worse, expect a turning point.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

If you’re single and looking for love, or, if you’re dating someone new, expect the fall to be filled with romantic potential. Jupiter, the planet of expansion and abundance, will continue to move through your 5th House of True Love — a once in twelve year event! With a transit like this you might very well find the love of your life! When Venus trines Jupiter on September 26 you’ll have an even sweeter opportunity for love. If you’re already attached, Mars will enter your 7th House of Partnerships on October 15 and will remain here until December 7. There might be more arguments than usual, or you might decide to speak up for yourself with a greater amount of aggression. The funny thing is that on October 19 when Mars opposes Neptune you and your mate might scratch your foreheads in confusion, wondering what the heck it really is that you’re fighting about after all. Don’t sweat the small stuff.

A Look Ahead – Spring Love Horoscopes 2013

Spring Love Horoscopes 2013

As the Sun start to shine, so will your love life!

Maria DeSimone   Maria DeSimone on the topics of horoscopes, astrology, love

Looking for love? Now that the Sun is out again after a long, dreary winter it’s time to open your heart and see what the stars have in store for your romantic life. This spring we’ll have plenty of cosmic cooperation to help you out. Venus and Mars — the planets of love and desire — will move along the zodiac at a pace that offers plenty of opportunity for your heart to soar. It’s also Eclipse season! For some signs, that means life altering changes in the romance department. So go ahead, read all about your sign’s spring love forecast. It’s time to smile because the Sun is out and love is in the air!

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Your sign kicks off the Spring Equinox which automatically makes you extra favored in all things now — especially love!  Not only are you feeling more confident and vibrant, you can be sure that there will be plenty of romantic opportunities in store as spring opens up. From March 21-April 14 you’re simply gorgeous! Venus will grace your sign during these weeks offering you plenty of seductive glow. In addition, Mars will be in your sign until April 20 adding even more sex appeal. Your powers of attraction will be off the charts during these weeks!

Be sure to schedule a fun filled weekend on April 5-7 because whether you’re single or attached, the sizzling conjunction of Venus to Mars will leave you breathless. If you’re married, there might be a glitch in your relationship to work out during the nasty Full Moon in Libra on March 27. If you run into problems at this time but want to salvage the relationship, be sure to schedule a couples retreat the weekend of April 5-7. The make-up sex alone will heal you both!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus, you’re the sign responsible for sustaining the beauty spring contains. This year, you’ll be happy to know that when the flowers around you begin to bloom, so will your best romantic potential! Venus, your ruling planet of love, will enter your sign on April 15-May 9 and during this time your sensual charms will be off the charts! In addition to this, Mars, the planet of desire, will be in your sign from April 20-May 31. Although these two planets will play “hard to get” with each other, and never form an exact conjunction in the sky, you will certainly benefit from the mouthwatering love bites they’ll offer. If you’re attached however, there may be a few bumps in the relationship department this spring. On April 22 Venus will oppose Saturn, the planet of restriction and limits which is now in your 7th House of Committed Partnership.

There might be a test in your marriage — particularly if you aren’t feeling appreciated and adored from your mate. A Lunar Eclipse in your 7th house on April 25 will pick up on this theme. If there’s a weak link in your relationship, this Eclipse may prompt a break. If this happens try not to fret … a gorgeous Solar Eclipse in your sign on May 9 spells new beginnings everywhere!

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Although your sign is in its glory at the tail end of spring, this certainly doesn’t mean you’ll feel left out of the spring love club this year. In fact, in some ways the universe may have saved the best for last! First however, you’ll need to get through an icky Full Moon in Libra on March 27. If you’re single then it might be a time you feel sorry for yourself more than usual about your single status. If you’re dating someone, this lunation will present a tough blow to your love fest. A break is possible — especially if issues of trust and personal space crop up. Not to worry though, because the planets are sure to align in your favor by late spring. In fact, on May 9 and until June 2, Venus will be in your sign giving you the “fairest one of all” award. Also, from May 31-June 13 Mars will be in your sign as well — giving you all the ambition you need to pursue who you desire. On May 28 Venus and Jupiter embrace in your sign and you know what that means? Yummylicious romance! If you’re married or in a serious relationship, then you can expect a turning point at the Lunar Eclipse on May 25. This Eclipse will fall in your 7th House of Committed Partnerships and if you’ve been blinded by love it’s possible that now, your blind spot will be exposed. On the other hand, if you know that by now you’re living a real life romantic fairytale, then it’s possible you and your mate will deepen your commitment.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Although Saturn, the planet of tests and limitation, is now fully entrenched in your 5th House of True Love, don’t automatically think that your spring is doomed to a dry spell. Instead, think of this as spring training for your heart. Admittedly, March 22 might be a difficult day to navigate since Venus will oppose Saturn. A friend may show marked disapproval for someone you’ve got your sights on. In the end, you’ll need to make the call and be true to yourself. But first, take your friend’s point into consideration … is this person really good enough for you?

A Lunar Eclipse on March 25 in your 5th house might force you to take pause and give serious consideration in matters of the heart. You don’t just want to give your love away; you want it to be earned by someone who deserves it. From June 2-26 you’ll have plenty of magnetism thanks to Venus touring your sign. Love potential will be stimulated on June 7 when Venus forms a friendly link to Saturn in your 5th house. This will be your weekend to take a chance on love!

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Although romance might not by your primary focus this spring, you’ll have your fair share of action in the love department. The main event for you, by far, will be the Lunar Eclipse on May 25. This Eclipse will fall in your 5th House of True Love and you can expect illumination when it comes to your feelings for someone special. There’s a heavy dose of Neptunian energy around this Eclipse and it’s possible that you’ll think you’re only fooling yourself that this couldn’t possibly be love. Think again. This Eclipse will provide a turning point for you where you may consider entering into a relationship with someone you didn’t see clearly in the past. You might still feel confused as you begin the relationship. However, you will have him or her on a pedestal for now and will be willing to give your new partner the benefit of the doubt.

If you’re attached, it’s possible that your feelings for this person will deepen and those beautiful “I love yous” will be exchanged for the very first time. With Venus and Jupiter embracing days later on May 28 in your 11th House of Love Received, you will be more open to love this week than any other time this spring. Go ahead, fall in love. Your heart is ready.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

This spring, love can definitely feel like “Some Kind of Wonderful” thanks to a few gorgeous links to Neptune, now in your 7th House of Partnership. But first, don’t forget to mark your calendar for the weekend of April 5-7 since a sexy conjunction of Venus to Mars in your 8th House of Deep Intimacy may prove to be quite titillating! After Venus enters Taurus, she’ll connect beautifully to Neptune — on April 18. This will be your day for inspirational love. You and your sweetheart may decide to take a spiritual or romantic retreat together — and it could involve long distance travel!

When Mars connects to Neptune on April 26 you’ll have no trouble sharing your deepest fantasies with your mate. Love may somehow connect to your career on May 28 as Venus and Jupiter embrace in your professional 10th house. Then, on June 7 you might be certain you’ve found your soul mate thanks to an enchanting link between Venus and Neptune. Still, love is not without its struggles and one may erupt on June 11 as Venus opposes Pluto, the planet of obsession and control, now in your 5th House of True Love. Remember, your heart needs to trust in order to surrender to the deep, life altering potential love can provide. Are you ready?

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Ouch! You might start off the spring with a bruise to your heart. On March 27, a tense Full Moon will fall in your sign. Since it’ll be emotionally charged, it’s possible that you and a loved one will part ways. Remember Libra, you have the unique lesson of learning how to relate while also trying to keep your identity in the process. If you’ve been giving yourself away too much for the sake of a relationship, then this lunation may bring it to a crashing end. Still, don’t lose hope! Venus and Mars will tour your 7th House of Partnership for the early weeks of spring, making it possible for you and your mate to enjoy a heated argument followed by delicious make up sex. March 21-April 14 are your best days to enjoy harmony with a partner — if you manage to survive the vicious Full Moon.

Whenever Venus graces your partnership sector it will encourage you to make peace with your mate. Unfortunately, Mars will be there to stir the pot as well. From March 12-April 20 there may not be a shortage of argument. The good news is that you can also be sure that there will be plenty of passion to go along with the bickering. In fact, if you and your sweetie pie can take the weekend of April 5-7 to go off on a romantic getaway, the time together may remind you why you fell in love in the first place.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

You and your opposite sign Taurus are leading stars in this Spring Eclipse showdown which means there are likely to be major changes in the landscape of a personal relationship. With Saturn in your sign, you may feel a strong urge to get serious about what you want personally and with a partner. On April 25, a Lunar Eclipse in your sign closely connected to Saturn will be a wakeup call. Is a relationship moving in the direction that you hoped for? Or are you the one pulling all the weight in what is supposed to be a twosome? You’ll have your answer under the light of this Full Moon Eclipse. Fortunately, a new beginning is possible for you and your mate since two weeks later a New Moon Solar Eclipse will fall in your 7th House of Partnership on May 9. It’s definitely time to do some spring cleaning in your relationship life and once you honestly examine those cobwebs and dust them away, you may find enormous potential for romantic bliss. With Venus in your 7th house from April 15-May 9 you’ll have the perfect amount of cosmic support to believe that in the end, love will prevail.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Your heart is on fire this spring! If you’re single then you can certainly expect love to come knocking on your door. If you’re attached, then expect sparks to fly again between you and your honey. Venus, the planet of love, will be in your 5th House of Romance from March 21-April 15. This is an incredible cycle for pleasure and amore! As if that wasn’t good enough, Mars, the planet of desire, will be the same area of your chart from March 12-April 20. If this doesn’t wake up your libido, nothing will! The cosmic lovers connected in your house of love and sex is a rare treat indeed so be sure to indulge. March 28 is a day love can arrive in the most unexpected and exciting way thanks to a perfect link between Venus and electrifying Uranus.

Also, mark your calendar for the weekend of April 5-7 when these two planets will tangle up in a passionate embrace. You simply must make the most of this energy. Plan a first date, or a romantic encounter with your lover. It’ll be hot, hot, hot! In addition to all of this fiery, passionate energy, a Lunar Eclipse will fall in your sign on May 25. This will bring complete illumination about a vital relationship matter. You’ll know whether or not you’ve been kissing a frog and you’ll act accordingly. Fortunately, a gorgeous embrace between Venus and Jupiter on May 28 in your 7th House of Partnership is a positive indicator that in the end, love is all you need!

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

This spring, it seems as if almost every sign has their shot at romance. While you might have felt cheated over the winter in the love department, the season has changed … and guess what? Love is in the air! You’ll notice a major shift once Venus enters your 5th House of Romance on April 15. Until May 9 you’ll have plenty of admirers and if you’re single, at least one of them may capture your attention. In fact, on April 24 Venus will link up perfectly to Pluto, now in your sign. This could bring a fated love connection your way. You know — the kind that makes you love drunk and all tingly inside. Yep, it could happen! You see this spring, when it comes to your usual love mojo, all bets are off. You might usually be slow to give your heart away. However, this spring that tendency might change. Mars will also be in your romance sector from April 20-May 31 which will help speed up any love connection you make while Venus was there. As if that weren’t enough to get your heart open, a potent Solar Eclipse will fall in your 5th House of True Love on May 9. Oh yeah … love is definitely in your spring forecast!

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

It seems as if every sign will get a turn at the game of love this spring … and you are no exception! Your time may arrive later than the other signs but that’s ok — all good things come to those who wait. In your case, love planet Venus will enter your 5th House of Romance on May 9 and will remain there until June 2, giving you plenty of cosmic support if you’re single and looking for love.

If you’re attached, you and your mate could decide to have a baby and you might even conceive one during the spring months. Not only will Venus adorn the 5th house of your chart, but you’ll also be at the tail end of a one year transit of lucky Jupiter touring the same house. In fact, both Venus and Jupiter will embrace in the most blessed of aspects on May 28 so if there was ever a day you can count on winning the jackpot of love, this will be it! Sexy Mars will join the 5th house party on May 31 and will remain here well into Summer which assures you of a once in two year opportunity to enjoy all of the pleasures life has to offer — whether it’s on dance floor or in the bedroom!

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Are you looking for love? Well this spring you’ll begin a fantastic cycle that promises plenty of opportunity for heart felt smooches with someone special. In your case, the main event will begin later than most, however you will not be disappointed once love comes knocking on your door.  Mark your calendar for June 3 because this is when the magic begins! Venus, the planet of love and harmony, will enter your 5th House of Romance on this day. First, she’ll make a gorgeous trine to Neptune and Saturn on June 7 making this your five star day — make that weekend — for love! You might fall under a love spell and if so, you’ll feel a deep, emotional and spiritual connection with your prince or princess.

There will be a tense day in love matters on June 11 when Venus opposes Pluto, and it’s possible that you’ll feel overly obsessed with your lover on this day. Just try not to turn it into a ‘Fatal Attraction’ moment and you’ll be fine! June 12 is another day to watch out for because Venus will rub elbows with Uranus and there might be a sudden break up or a sudden affair that comes your way. Either way, a spring that might be slow to warm up when it comes to romance will end on an extremely sizzling note. Enjoy!

Moon Protection for Amulets, Talismans or Any Personal Items

Moon Protection for Amulets, Talismans or Any Personal Items

Place a jewel, that you regularly carry on you, in a cup of spring water a day before the full moon. The following day, on the evening of full moon, stir the water three times with your finger in a clockwise motion. Take the cup in your hands and in a clockwise, stirring motion, move the cup in a clockwise, circular, stirring motion three times. Then, repeat these words aloud:

Oh Light of the Moon,
Wrap me
Protect Me
Keep me from harm.

Raise the cup towards the sky and drink the water. Remove the jewel from the cup. You must carry it on your person to the next full moon in order to ensure your protection. Repeat this ritual every month to benefit from its influence

Making Moon Water

Making Moon Water


Moon water is at its most potent when made on the night of the full moon or during a partial or total lunar eclipse. You can also make it in the two or three days before the full moon if the skies are clear and the moon is shining brightly.

1.   On the night of the full moon (it rises around sunset) set a silver colored or clear crystal bowl outdoors where the moonlight can shine on it.

2.   Half-fill it with still mineral water, if possible from a sacred source, and, if you have any add a few drops of water from a holy well. You can substitute bubbling tap water.

3.   Surround the bowl with pure white flowers or blossoms or small moonstones.

4.   If you have a small silver bell, ring it three times, saying for each ring:

“First the Maiden, now the Mother, then the Wise Grandmother.”

5.  Raise your arms on either side of your head, your hands facing upwards flat with pal uppermost and repeat the same words three times.

6.   Stir the water nine times moonwise (anticlockwise) with a silver colored paper knife (silver being the color and metal of the moon) or an amethyst crystal point. Ask the moon mother to bless the water and those who use it.

7.    If you are not carrying out a moon ceremony, leave the bowl in position, covered with fine mesh, overnight.

8.  Ring the bell three times more before leaving and say:

“Blessings Be.”

9.   If you don’t have a bell, kneel and put your hand round the bowl, saying:

“Blessings Be.”

10.  Using a glass jug and filter, pour the water if possible into small blue, silver or frosted glass bottles that you can seal and keep in your fridge or a cool place until the next full moon night. If you use a plain bottle label it so you don’t mistake it for another magickal water.

11.  Any water left at the end of the moon period should be poured into the ground before moonrise on the next full moon night.

Astrology Insights for December 2012

Astrology Insights for December 2012

Maria DeSimone

Maria DeSimone on the topics of blogs, astrology

I don’t know about you, but my world ended on October 29. The Mayans were only a couple of months off. OK, so I’m obviously being sarcastic (and no, the world really isn’t going to end). But seriously, for so many of us on the East Coast, Hurricane Sandy might as well have been named Hurricane Mayan.

All I have to say about November 2012 is good riddance. I am so happy November is behind us, I feel like celebrating New Year’s Eve a month early. If your world turned upside down in November — with the difficult Solar Eclipse sandwiched in between an especially biting Mercury Retrograde — then take heart: December will be better.

December brings unexpected fulfillment — or loss

On November 28, a Lunar Eclipse in Gemini makes close contact to Jupiter. I’d like to ignore all the fancier aspects this Eclipse made in the sky (inconjunct, yod, blah, blah, blah) and just keep it simple. But I can’t. There’s just too much of a story here. The Eclipse is conjunct Jupiter and sextile Uranus. Unexpected emotional fulfillment … or perhaps ending.

Now, let’s get complicated and start talking about the famous yod around this eclipse. A “yod” is a rare astrological aspect that forms between three or more points where two planets are sextile, and both are quincunx to a third planet. In this case, the Moon makes an inconjunct aspect to Mars-Pluto in Capricorn and Venus-Saturn in Scorpio, while Mars-Pluto and Venus-Saturn are sextile. With a yod pattern, you can say there’s a strong fated quality to whatever happens emotionally around this eclipse promise.

For many of us, this eclipse has a fated, karmic suggestion of adjustments and completion when it comes to love. Especially powerful, fatal attraction love affairs or those extra complicated relationships. If you have planets around 7 degrees of just about any sign, you are somehow inextricably tied to this eclipse. You will feel its emotional pull.  I say this because of the incredible relationship that all of the love planets (Venus, Mars) have to this lunation.

But for others, like me, it might have more to do with family and safety issues.

A light at the end of the tunnel

Whatever the case, we’ll spend the first half of December adjusting to the emotional implications of late November’s eclipse. Then, on December 11, I see a light at the end of the tunnel that began for so many on October 29. This is because on December 11 we’ll have the final Mercury square Neptune aspect that occurred for the first time on October 29, right before Mercury went retrograde. The confusing communication and lack of cooperation you might have experienced post-Sandy, such as dealing with paperwork issues, FEMA, insurance problems and anything else, will now be resolved.

Life gets better by December 13, when we pass Mercury’s shadow phase and enjoy a gorgeous New Moon in Sagittarius to boot. This New Moon is when I know the fresh start will be in full swing for all of us, whether you’ve been dealing with hurricane fallout or other personal drama.

For two weeks after this we’ll feel energized, happy and one with the universe again.

On December 28, an emotionally charged Full Moon in Cancer might bring some tension with family, but remember to keep it all in perspective. After all, it’s not like the world is going to end. You’ve got this.

Moon Spell

Moon Spell



  • A small globe of crystal or clear glass.


Initial Preparation:

The first time you starts this spell and every time you wish to use it for a new special purpose, you have to clear and consecrate the globe of crystal/glass by holding it up to the light of the Full Moon, so that the lunar image is caught therein.


After this has been performed, the globe may be used as a charm to procure the secret wish of the owner.  On the night of each New Moon, hold the sphere in the left palm, by candlelight, gaze upon it, and chant:

Crescent be full and crystal fill: Thus my eye and thus my will: Fiat Voluntus Abdita! Fiat Voluntus Abdita!! Fiat Voluntus Abdita!!!

The globe should then be kept in a small bag of leather incribed with figures of the Moon’s phases, and worn about the neck during those days and nights between the crescent and the full.  While it is not being worn, the globe should be wrapped in a black cloth and hidden away.

Your Daily Horoscopes for November 28th

This is an intense day that requires us to let go of the past. The data-hungry Gemini Full Moon Eclipse at 9:45 am EST encourages communication with a close friend or lover, but we may learn more than we bargain for now.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

The Full Moon Eclipse in your versatile sign raises the volume on your emotions, yet it may be difficult to act on what you feel.

Even if you’re sure of your newly chosen path, let your feelings settle for a day or two before making any major changes to your overall plans.


Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Since you careful crustaceans are strongly influenced by the Moon, today’s Lunar Eclipse in your 12th House of Secrets makes you acutely aware of what you’re not sharing.

There is no need to hide; you are fine just the way you are.

Today’s inquisitive Gemini Full Moon Eclipse deepens your resolve to make the most of your current situation, even if it falls short of your ideals. Your mind is overactive as you run through every possible scenario. You understand what’s happening around you, but it’s still challenging to make practical changes now. Nevertheless, the magnetic Venus-Pluto sextile empowers you to hold on to your vision with fierce passion, even if it takes time to reach your goals.


Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

The interactive Gemini Full Moon Eclipse in your 7th House of Relationships is opposite your Sun sign today, and you may feel influenced by the changing feelings of those around you.

Even if your professional life is moving along well now, your stress level is high as today’s unstable Gemini Full Moon Eclipse rattles your 4th House of Emotional Security.

Get ready to deal with information overload! The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in loquacious Gemini on November 28 opposes the Sun in opinionated Sagittarius, and all this outgoing energy is going to get noisy.

We can expect words, words and more words as expansive Jupiter in Gemini is joined with the Moon. Much of what we hear will be chatter that’s more distraction than useful data. And economic news could make headlines as valuable Venus joins stingy Saturn in Scorpio.

The key message of this Lunar Eclipse is to let go of old ideas and fears to come up with fresh, creative concepts for the future. Get more insight for planning ahead, see how this Full Moon Eclipse will affect your sign:

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Less talk and more action are called for with this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your 3rd House of Communication. Don’t get jumpy if you hear bad news or fall for any of your own fatalistic thinking. Cutting connections with worrisome people who keep pointing back to the past is a good step toward discovering a more desirable picture of the future. Fresh sources of information can be inspirational.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Some old ideas about money and property may keep you from fulfilling your potential. Cut financial losses now instead of holding on with unfounded hope that they will magically turn around. Sure, it’s hard to let go of investments, objects and values that have a strong hold on you, but economic times are a changing with this Lunar Eclipse in your 2nd House of Resources and Income.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Gemini signals a need for simplicity. There may be too many ideas, connections, conversations and speculations going on in your mind to see clearly enough to make good decisions. Less information will serve you better than more, and fewer options produce sharp thinking. Reduce data and streamline systems to pull your head out of the clouds and put your feet on solid ground.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

This Full Moon in chatty Gemini is a Lunar Eclipse in your 12th House of Unfinished Business. The demands, needs and questions of others can make it hard for you to stand up and take control of your life. It may be time to shut the door, turn off the phone and stop answering e-mails for a while. The answers you seek come from within and from spiritual guidance, but you need some peace and quiet to hear them.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Your obligations within groups and the distractions of friends and colleagues could be reaching a breaking point. This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your 11th House of Organizations suggests that you may be spreading yourself too thin. Making priorities regarding your needs and desires helps you to cut through the clutter and recognize what activities you can eliminate to streamline your life.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in diverse Gemini lands in your 10th House of Career and Public Obligations, which could overload you with too many tasks. You don’t like losing focus and being unable to operate at your best, so this event is a reminder to consider resetting your priorities. Doing one job at the highest skill level possible will be more rewarding than spreading yourself too thin.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Travel plans and educational expectations could be complicated with this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your 9th House of Higher Learning and Faraway Places. Simplifying your schedule is one way to reduce the chances of wearing yourself out or wasting opportunities. More is not better now, so don’t allow lesser activities to distract you from the ones reflect your higher aspirations.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

It is decision time for you in emotional and financial partnerships. This Lunar Eclipse in your 8th House of Deep Sharing is a signal to get off the fence and make a tough choice or two. This usually isn’t your problem, but the options you face within current relationships or in pursuing new ones may be overwhelming. Focus on your basic needs and you’ll find a clearer path toward satisfaction.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Relationships may be shaken by this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your 7th House of Partners. It occurs in the chatty sign of Gemini, which can distract you with ideas and words that sound good, but which may not take you where you want to go. This is a time to trust your gut instincts and act on them because a wrong turn of your own choice is more easily corrected than going along on someone else’s ride.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

Work-related issues may come to a critical turning point with this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your 6th House of Employment. You’re not the type to seek the easy way out, but you could be following a path of least resistance on the job that’s not taking you where you want to go. Adapting to others is necessary in life, but you may have given up too much ground and finally need to take a stand.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Cutting down on the variety of creative plans in your mind is a good way to turn at least one of them into reality. This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in diverse Gemini falls in your 5th House of Self-Expression, where eliminating a collection of potential projects puts all of your eggs in one solid basket. Romance also benefits by setting priorities and concentrating your attention where your desire is strongest.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Family matters and home-related issues require some clarity and cleaning up with this Lunar Eclipse in your domestic 4th House of Home. This is also a Full Moon in jittery Gemini that can easily distract your attention from career and other public responsibilities. Actions speak louder than words when dealing with concerns in your household, so make a tough decision or two and get on with your life.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for November 28th

Out of the frying pan and into the fire! Before the Full Moon is a reality, the two largest celestial bodies (the Sun and Jupiter) form a dicey contra-parallel (4:04AM PST). This implies that titanic forces are struggling for domination, and that stress and strain are in-built into this monthly crescendo of the two stellar lights.  You do want to utilize the times for the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse (6:34AM PST) and the Full Moon (6:47AM PST that activates 7 degrees of Sagittarius and Gemini) for sending out high-level, healing thoughts and prayers to humanity and the kingdoms of nature. Individual and group meditations are recommended.  While the forces of enlightenment are definitely active, some turmoil can still be expected since Pallas squares Juno (7:34AM PST) while Venus forms a supportive, 60-degree rapport with underworld-ruling Pluto (8:03AM PST).  Worlds may seem to be colliding metaphorically since many celestial bodies are at work, and the recent alignments that caused dissension in the ranks on Monday and Tuesday of this week are also still throwing their proverbial weight around.  If there is a good luck charm in all this hooting and hollering, it is the monthly Moon-Jupiter union in Gemini (5:05PM PST) that always has the capacity to expand your mental horizons in many exciting, new directions. The problem here is that this aspect begins yet another long, void lunar cycle that lasts until Friday November 30 at 5:56AM PST. This 36+ hour void lunar whopper is longer than last weekend’s 35-hour extravaganza. Completing odd jobs and old projects is more sensible than promoting innovative enterprises that haven’t been reliably tested so far.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for November 27th

If you haven’t yet started preparing for tomorrow’s Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse, start doing so now — even though the Moon itself in Taurus is void until 4:59PM PST. Think more about your higher destiny on Spaceship Earth than on fulfilling lower-level, personal needs. Some of yesterday’s challenges — the Sun square Chiron, Venus parallel Neptune, Mercury stationary, and Venus joining forces with Saturn — are still reverberating in the psychic atmosphere.  Now you have to deal with the every two-year Mars-Pluto union in Capricorn (12:18PM PST). While it is wise to steer clear of temperamental individuals and avoid pushing the anger button on the partnership front, you may still be able to tweak this Mars-Pluto convergence into being favorable if you tune into your spiritual willpower and carefully direct the dynamic emotional forces available into constructive channels of creativity. Since the Moon is void while the Mars-Pluto encounter occurs, you may want to wait until after 4:59PM PST — when the Moon is more safely placed in Gemini territory — before proceeding with some of your dynamic plans.  What can undermine your best efforts is that Venus forms a frictional, 45-degree link to Juno (5:15PM PST) and as the Moon squares Neptune (5:53PM PST). It may be better to enjoy reading, writing and research with the Moon in the third sign of the zodiac than to try and maneuver the Mars-Pluto rapport into being your personal support system.
