This month, we’re not only called to get curious about the world around us by connecting with others and pursuing experiences that stimulate our minds, we’re called to do it with heart, especially as chatty Mercury spends time in tenderhearted Cancer (beginning June 4) and passionate Leo (beginning June 26). One reason for this comes courtesy of the New Moon in communicative Gemini on June 3, followed by love planet Venus entering Gemini on June 8. With the help of the New Moon and Venus in Gemini, we should find ourselves eager to learn, try new things, and make new friends along the way.

Though with chatty Mercury entering tenderhearted Cancer on June 4, followed by Cancer season kicking off on June 21, we’re called to make our connections, conversations, and actions count. And with the Full Moon in Sagittarius on June 17, the message of the month is clear—if it doesn’t contribute to our growth or make a meaningful contribution, it’s time to let it go. Wherever we may have been overly optimistic or avoiding seeing things as they are, we can look to dreamy Neptune in compassionate Pisces beginning its five month retrograde on the 21st to help clear away the fog.

With go-getter Mars entering tenderhearted Cancer (May 15th) this month and a Full Moon landing in all-or-nothing Scorpio (May 18th), we can expect emotions to be heightened this month. Though with all of the emo vibes that will be in the air, we’re called to pay close attention to what we feel and why, as our feelings will help to point us in the direction that we need to go, especially when it comes to our own happiness and pleasure. That said, pleasure will also be a theme this month with the New Moon in sensual Taurus on May 4th, followed by communicative Mercury entering Taurus on the 6th and love planet Venus moving home to Taurus on the 15th.

Simply put, the cosmos is encouraging us to focus on what matters most; the people, places, and the things that deeply resonate with us – mind, body, and soul. This will be especially true as the confident Sun and analytical Mercury move into curious and intellectual Gemini on May 21st confirming the need for intellectual fare, stimulating conversation, and fascinating discoveries. Happy Gemini Season!

March 2019 Horoscopes

march-astrology-report.jpg

It’s an action-packed month with Aries season kicking off but with communicative Mercury going retrograde in dreamy Pisces from March 5-28, we’re going to have to look before we leap. That’s because Mercury retrograde is when miscommunication, delays, and misunderstandings are at an all time high, and with Pisces in the mix, we might not be seeing things as clearly or as truthfully as we should. That’s why we’ll have to lean on Mercury in Pisces’ power of intuition to delve inward, reflect, and feel our way through.

Last month may have been a roller coaster ride thanks to the effects of two game-changing eclipses. Luckily, this month we get the chance to catch our breath and let the dust settle a bit. February opens with love planet Venus entering grounded and practical Capricorn on February 3rd, bringing the focus to commitment, dedication, and integrity when it comes to relationships and financial matters.

Since Capricorn is an earth sign, Venus in Capricorn will also be pushing us to establish a healthier relationship with ourselves, especially when it comes to our physical well-being. With active Mars entering sensual and equally grounded Taurus on February 14th, followed by the Full Moon in health-conscious Virgo on the 19th, the emphasis on our physical health will be hard to ignore.

As a rule, eclipses can be rough on the body by ramping up stress levels. The earthy energy coming our way can help us get the care and calming energy that we need.

Meanwhile, the New Moon in Aquarius on February 4th, coupled with the start of Pisces season on February 18th, encourages us to make smarter and more fulfilling choices when it comes to our connections to others, while looking to ways that we can help make the world better for others too–specifically those who may be vulnerable or marginalized. Having communicative Mercury entering soulful Pisces on February 10th means that we’ll be looking to have more meaningful conversations and connections as well.

Between the New Moon in Aquarius, Venus in Capricorn, and planets in Pisces, we’re reminded that healthy, supportive, and emotionally uplifting relationships can also be the anchor that we need right now.

November 2018 Horoscopes

november-astrology-report.jpg

Although there will be some big shifts taking place this month, things may still feel like they aren’t up to full speed as aggressive Mars enters dreamy and introverted Pisces on November 15 and Mercury, the planet of communication, goes retrograde in Sagittarius on November 16. However, there will be something that we can celebrate and that’s when Jupiter; the planet of growth, good fortune, and optimism moves home to happy-go-lucky  Sagittarius on November 8 after spending the last year in the murky waters of Scorpio. With Jupiter at home in Sagittarius for the next thirteen months, not only does it mean more abundance, adventure, and goodwill to go around (especially with Sagittarius season kicking off on November 22) but it also means that we’ll also be focusing more closely on the ethically or morally right thing to do for ourselves and others.

With Virgo season underway, we should see a stark contrast between the wobbly energy of last month and the more grounded energy of this month. Although Mars will be moving back into unconventional Aquarius, which should stir things up a bit; having the Sun and communicative Mercury in Virgo should help us with staying flexible, organized, and sane. And if we feel like we’ve fallen off track or off target, the New Moon in Virgo on September 9 will help us find our bearings again and get back on the wagon. Meanwhile, pleasure-loving Venus will be in all-or-nothing Scorpio, making sure that whatever or whomever we invest our time and resources into will truly be worth the trouble.

August 2018 Horoscopes

August-2018-Horoscopes.jpg
If things have felt "stop and go" thanks to last month’s eclipses and all the retrograde planetary action we’ve been getting; this month brings us some much-needed momentum. Not only is Mercury moving forward again, but aggressive Mars also turns direct; which should help us with getting plans, projects, and initiatives off the ground. Meanwhile, we’re still in eclipse season with one more eclipse to go; the Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 11, 2018. Under this eclipse, we should expect dramatic new beginnings, fresh starts, and life-changing opportunities that span themes that cover confidence, creativity, romance, and authenticity. With the shifts and changes that are still afoot, it’s a good thing that Mars will be moving back into grounded and responsible Capricorn by mid-month. With Mars in one of their favorite places to be, the energy in the air shouldn’t feel as jarring as it has been over the past few weeks, especially with Mars turning direct by August 27. Couple Mars grounding vibes with the earthy energy of Virgo season (August 23) and we should be able to find the motivation, energy, and the clarity to move into the next phase of our lives. Meanwhile, the Full Moon in Pisces on August 26 will stop by to help us with turning a dream into something real.

Although Gemini season is in full swing, the pace this month slows down significantly once the planets begin shifting into cautious Cancer, pushing us to lean on our intuition rather than making snap judgments. At the same time, active Mars will also begin its two-month retrograde; backtracking through the signs of Aquarius and Capricorn and helping us to make sure we’re not blindly following the rules in place or investing our energy into futile endeavors. Planet Neptune (dreams, illusions, compassion) also goes retrograde this month in Pisces, pushing us to see through illusions and to see things as they are. In fact, with a Full Moon in no-nonsense Capricorn happening this month as well, many of us are due for a reality check.

January 2018 Monthly Horoscopes

Aries: The beginning of January may have brought a home or family matter to light or highlighted your need to get as much emotional nourishment as you can. That’s because a big chunk of your time and attention for the rest of January will be focused on your career and ambitions. Your mission begins on January 11th when busy Mercury moves into Capricorn, your zone of fame and achievement. With Mercury joining the four planets in Capricorn that are already there, it’s time to bring your A game to the table as people will be looking to you for your smarts and expertise.

Though with the power of communication at your fingertips, you can create opportunities for yourself if you pay attention and follow-through. This will be a good time to make presentations and hold meetings that will get you in front of the VIPs in your field. Meanwhile, the New Moon in Capricorn (January 16th) can help you with landing a new gig or getting widespread attention and pubic accolades.

The rest of the month not only asks that you continue to challenge them but to open your mind to new perspectives. You can start when curious Mercury moves into Capricorn; your zone of travel, education, and opportunity on January 11th. Mercury will be pushing you to go beyond what you already know in exchange for new experiences and information that you can actually use. Part of this means shedding old and outdated beliefs that may be limiting you from thinking outside of the box or believing in your vision. Instead of coming down on yourself for what you don’t know; Mercury will ask that you put in the time to learn, study, and research to fill in the gaps. This may include travel as a form of education or taking classes in something you’re passionate about. On the 16th, the New Moon in Capricorn can help you with mapping out a course.

On the 26th, Mars enters Sagittarius, your zone of finances and intimacy. With Mars here, your magnetism will be impossible to resist. Just make sure you vet your partners carefully though as getting a lover out of your system won't exactly be the easiest thing to do. Best to give your time to someone worthwhile. On a similar note, Mars could also give you the courage to break one if the relationship has been toxic or emotionally abusive. In terms of your finances, Mars could bring an unexpected expense, so you may want to have a rainy-day fund at the ready or take it easy on the spending this month. If you’ve been unfairly carrying the weight of a financial burden, Mars will also push you to draw the line. Things get truly intense around the Lunar Eclipse in Leo on January 31st, which lands in your zone of home and family. Under this eclipse you could be forced to move or have a falling out with a family member. While this may feel like a crisis at first, know that the goal of an eclipse is to help you get where you need to be instead of wasting time with things that no longer serve you. Be open to change.

Gemini: This opening of this month may have brought a financial matter to a head. The rest of January will have you sorting things out afterward. That’s because detailed Mercury will be joining the four planets already in Capricorn (your zone of intimacy and finances) on the 11th. As a result, it’s time to face the reality of your current financial situation and get to work in improving it. With the heavy emphasis of planets in Capricorn, you’ll have to guard against becoming hopeless or fearful that you’ll be left out in the cold. If debt is a serious issue, this could be a good time to work with a financial counselor (some offer services for free) to help you with creating a plan of action to get on your feet. You might also consider calling up your credit card companies to work out a payment plan or get your interest rate reduced. Meanwhile, if you have some money in the bank this could be a good time to think about investing some of it. Look to the New Moon in Capricorn on January 16th to help you with uncovering options to help you get your finances correct. Since this area of your chart also covers intimacy, you may want to consider the ways in which you block yourself from getting the care and support you need by being afraid to be vulnerable. You don’t have to open yourself up to just anyone, but you do need to start focusing on what you want from a partner rather than dwelling too hard on the past. The new moon could help you with attracting the right person for you, but you may need to challenge your inherited beliefs about love. No, all ____ don’t cheat, nor are all ____ trash.

On the 17th, romantic Venus moves into Aquarius – your zone of travel, opportunity and education. Venus will be pushing you to step out of your rut and to fall in love with living again.

As a result, you could receive a media gig with high visibility or make waves with the launch of a website or blog. Either way, your job is too see and interact with the world around you with new eyes.

Cancer: The beginning of January may have thrown you back a bit on yourself, asking you to drop dead weight and stagnant situations. The remainder of the month brings your attention back to the relationships in your life, with an emphasis on one in particular. That’s because communicative Mercury will be entering Capricorn, your zone of partnerships on January 11th. With Mercury’s help you should find communicating or working alongside your partner (whether in business or romance) taking up a huge chunk of your time. If you need to propose something to your partner or get something off your chest, Mercury can help to open the lines of communication. At the same time, your partner or someone you work closely with could offer you some sage advice or assistance this month that comes through in a clutch. If looking for love, the New Moon in Capricorn can assist you with finding someone with commitment potential.

This might be a good time to explore sexual techniques, build your lingerie collection, or learn how to use your Kundalini power to attract what you want.

When the Sun moves into Aquarius on January 19th, much of your attention will be focused on facing your fears and reclaiming your power. This might involves cutting ties with toxic people or allowing yourself to heal from an abusive relationship.

As a result, expect the next few weeks to get seriously busy. Your task will be learning how to keep up with the pace without burning out. This could mean putting down some boundaries in terms of how much you’re willing to take on as well as having a healthy outlet like exercise to burn off steam. Since this area of your chart also covers the people you work with, you could find your temper running short at work. If anything, this Mars transit will highlight the need for a better job if the environment has become too toxic. If you do decide to quit, just try not to be impulsive about it. On the 31st, money continues to be a major theme as a powerful Lunar Eclipse in Leo lands in your zone of income and possessions. Under this eclipse you could be pushed to find a new job or find yourself becoming less understanding when it comes to people that owe you money. If your self-worth has taken a hit recently, this eclipse will help you to believe in yourself again.

Leo: This month is a very big deal for you Leo, thanks to the game changing Lunar Eclipse in your sign at the end of the month. But before we get to that, let’s talk a little about what January looks like for you before the main event. The top of the month may have started out a bit slow for you and a bit emotional too. That’s because your current mission is to get rid of the spiritual and physical junk that you’ve been carrying around up until this point. With busy Mercury moving into Capricorn, your zone of health and routines on January 11th, it’s time to get your life in order. Look to ways you can cut down on distractions, improve your time management, drink more water, and make sure you’re spending your time and energy on things that are worth your while. Since Capricorn is an earth sign, this is not about reaching the finish line at lightening speed but rather taking the time to slow down and put in the work/discipline to make your plans a reality. For example, if your mission is to get in shape, quick fix teas or extreme dieting aren’t going to cut it. It’s going to take time, dedication, and a whole lot of sweat. The New Moon in Capricorn on the 16th, can help you with making a fresh start and getting yourself on track. If it’s been a while since you’ve had a medical or dental check-up, this moon will push you to make an appointment. Remember, your self-care is in your hands. If you truly want to be the trailblazer you were born to be, it will be your attention to the minor details that will really make a difference. Also, if you have tasks that you can hire out, it might be worth it rather than trying to do everything yourself.

On the 17th, romantic Venus enters Aquarius, your zone of partnerships. In terms of your professional life, collaborations with others could be beneficial in helping you to uncover new opportunities or grow your client base. When it comes to love, you could end up meeting someone new with long-term potential while coupled up Leos could find themselves being reminded of why they fell in love with their significant other in the first place.

When it comes to getting to the top, it will help to have someone solid on your team so be receptive to the support and attention. On the 26th, passionate Mars moves into Sagittarius, your zone of love and creativity. With Mars energizing this zone, you’ll have a serious craving for romance and excitement. It’s a good thing the universe will be co-conspiring with you to help you satisfy that craving. As long as you follow your heart when it comes to new experiences, the world is your oyster. Though you’re going to need some fun in your life when an intense and game changing Lunar Eclipse in Leo lands in your zone of confidence and self-image on the 31st. Rebirth isn’t easy to endure, but it’s necessary. Keep this in mind t the eclipse. Meanwhile, if you’ve been toiling away at something behind the scenes, get camera ready, the spotlight will be on you. Amplify your glow.

Virgo: You might have found yourself feeling a tad antisocial at the start of this month and that may very well be a good thing as the rest of this month pushes you to focus on yourself before anyone else. That’s because there’s currently a bevy of planets in Capricorn camped out in your zone of creativity and self-expression. On the 11th, Mercury (your ruling planet) joins the party; bringing your attention to increasing the fun and adventure in your life. Consider making a bucket or wish list of things that you’d love to do either for the rest of the month or the rest of the year – or maybe both. Even if you think it may be something that’s outrageous and might not happen ever, still put it on your list. Mercury will be acting as your cosmic messenger to make sure the universe hears your request. Look to the New Moon in Capricorn on January 16th to help you with setting intentions to help you check your bucket list off. Plus, with romance also associated with this area of your chart, you can attract new love by being on the wavelength of fun and curiosity.

On the 19th, when the Sun enters Aquarius; your source of energy and confidence will come by way of simplifying and detoxing your life. This could be a good time to jump start a fitness routine, get rid of clutter, and figure out ways to chop down your workload. While you often like to be of help to others, the time has come for you to start putting yourself first for a change while not feeling guilty about letting people rescue themselves and fix their own lives. It’s OK Virgo, your attention is needed elsewhere. It’s time to thrive on not being needed for right now. Well, you still need you so there’s that. On the 26th, aggressive Mars moves into your zone of home and family which could turn up the aggravation levels if you share a living space with other people. While Mars can help you with setting better boundaries, you may need to find projects around the house that can keep you busy and away from others for the next few weeks. Though Mars can be helpful for looking at the way you manage and deal with anger. If you’ve been holding on to some things, Mars could bring a cathartic release. Speaking of letting go, the powerful Lunar Eclipse in Leo lands on January 31st, sending shockwaves through your zone of rest and healing. At this eclipse it could be time to work with a therapist to work on shaking the emotional residue that’s been weighing heavy on your heart and soul.

Libra: While this month may have opened with a career highlight, majority of this month is focusing on your emotional nutrition and security. That’s because busy Mercury steps into Capricorn on January 11th, your zone of home and family; joining the four other planets in Capricorn already there. With Mercury a part of the team, you may find yourself becoming super nostalgic and focused on the past. While a walk down memory lane isn’t a bad thing, don’t allow it to distort your view of the present or your future. If you’re happy where you currently are, know that you have the power to rewrite your narrative and change course. Though it won’t be an overnight turnaround, if you’re dedicated to your own happiness things will improve. Journal writing and talking with trusted friends and family could be helpful in healing your wounds and releasing pain, as well as working with a therapist. If you’ve been thinking about buying or selling your house or moving to a new space, Mercury in Capricorn can assist you with the process and paperwork so that things go smoothly. Look to the days after the New Moon in Capricorn on January 16th to sign any papers or make any changes/upgrades related to your home as it will be an auspicious time. For Libras looking to start a family, this new moon can also be helpful, especially with love planet Venus entering Aquarius; your zone of romance, children, and creativity the next day.

Though if children aren’t in your plans, don’t worry because there are more goodies on the way thanks to the Sun entering Aquarius on the 19th. With the Sun and Venus camped out in your zone of true love over the next few weeks, romance could strike you like a lightning bolt. If you’re single and looking to meet someone new, this could be some exciting news. If you’re already attached, you and your bae should have quite the time falling back in love with each other. Since your creative energy will be on high, you could find yourself looking for ways to express yourself with flair. Perhaps this means getting gussied up for a stylized photoshoot, working on a film or creative writing project, or doing an avant garde art piece. Whatever you decide is sure to put you on the map. On the 26th, Mars moves into passionate Sagittarius, your zone of communication. With Mars here, the next few weeks would be a good time to work on anything that requires focus and concentration.

On January 31st, a potent Lunar Eclipse in Leo lands in your zone of friendship and future plans. This eclipse could shake up your friends list while pushing you to get serious about fulfilling your hopes and wishes.

Scorpio: The start of this month should have highlighted the outmoded and self-limiting beliefs that you still need to release. That’s why the team of planets in Capricorn will be camped out in your zone of ideas and communication to help you with shifting your perspective and thinking outside of the box. It all begins when curious Mercury joins Team Capricorn on January 11th, pushing you to open up your mind and to experience something new. With serious Saturn and intense Pluto already in this zone, your long-term goal with be to avoid letting the heavy Capricorn energy weigh your thoughts down with worry, sadness, and a bleak outlook. Since Mercury is a planet that like options and loves to solve problems, recognize that there’s more than one way to achieve a goal or move past a challenge. Since life doesn’t come with a template, give yourself space to try something new and try on a different path. The only thing you need to be concerned with is spreading yourself too thin. Pick a couple projects and ideas that are worth your time and focus on those rather than trying to be everywhere at once. Opportunities will be coming at you at lighting speed now, but know that it’s OK to turn things down if you’re not 100% into it.

Spending time with close family as well as entertaining guests at your home will be a source of nourishment. While Aquarius season is here, your job is getting the emotional nutrition you need via the support of your community. If you find yourself feeling low, reach out and connect with those you love. They will make time for you. On the 26th, Mars enters Sagittarius, your zone of income. Since Mars runs on impulse, you may want to watch out for sudden expenses or burning through your cash as soon as you get it. However, with Mars on your side, you may find yourself being more direct when it comes to your money and getting it from anyone that owes it to you. That’s a good thing though, because you shouldn’t undersell yourself or your skills. Speaking of your skills, you may receive some widespread recognition for them when a game changing Lunar Eclipse in Leo puts the spotlight on you on January 31st, lighting up your zone of fame and career. If you’re not ready, it’s time to get ready to boss up. While you’re at it put people on notice. You mean business.

Sagittarius: With money and finances being a major theme for you this month, the start of January may have had you focused on your debts and money management. If your financial health isn’t exactly where you’d like to be, then the rest of the month is here to get you sorted. Your work begins on January 11th when analytical Mercury moves into Capricorn, your zone of income and possessions. With Mercury joining the four planets in Capricorn already in this zone, your task will be to keep a close eye on the cash going in and out of your bank account. For Sags that thrive on instant gratification, this month may be learning the art of self-discipline. While this doesn’t mean that you can’t spend cash on the things that you want, it will mean that you’ll have to be savvier about what you spend your money on and when. Think quality over quantity. The money you spend on after work drinks could be going to a travel fund instead.  On the 16th, look to the New Moon to help you with turning over a new leaf when it comes to your money, whether it’s developing a workable budget, demanding better pay for your work, finding a new job, or developing a savings plan.

If you have a message or idea that you’d like to share with a larger audience, Aquarius season can help you make the connections that you need to make to do so.

It’s not enough to want something Aquarius, you have to be willing to put in the work to get it. Speaking of putting in the work, Saturn moves home to Capricorn, your zone of rest, retreat, and healing on December 19th. Over the next two and a half years, Saturn will be teaching you some important spiritual lessons. Some of those lessons may include the importance of keeping the faith, having a regular spiritual practice, and facing your fears head on. When the Sun moves into Capricorn on the 21st, get ready to have a light shone on those more tender pieces of your that need attention and maintenance. Consider this your time to heal and regroup. On the 25th, Venus moves into Capricorn, inviting you to ramp up your self-care and pleasure. Beauty heals.

Pisces: Your goals and career continue to be a focus for you as this month opens, thanks to Venus moving into Sagittarius, your zone of fame and achievement on December 1st, followed by Mercury going retrograde in Sagittarius on December 3rd. Under this cosmic combination, your job will be to make sure you feel a sense of fulfillment with what you do. At the same time, Mercury will have you working to make sure that how you see yourself and how you want others to see you are one in the same. This may mean being more authentic with how you present yourself to world around you. With Venus in the mix, people will find it hard not to love you, so it only makes sense to give them the best version of you (not the perfect version). When the Full Moon in Gemini landed in your zone of home and family on December 3rd, you may have received a reminder on the importance of being true to yourself over going above and beyond to make others happy. On the 9th, passionate Mars moves home to Scorpio; your zone of travel, education, and opportunity. As a result, you should find yourself craving new experiences that broaden and stimulate your mind and fill up your soul. Taking a trip or a class over the next few weeks could be inspiring.

On the 18th, the New Moon in Sagittarius teams up with hard working Saturn to help you with manifesting a promising job offer, promotion, or project that thrusts you into the spotlight. This moon is an auspicious one too as Saturn won’t be back in this zone of your chart for another 30 years. Consider this moon to be a reward of sorts for all the hard work you’ve been putting in for the last two and a half years. Meanwhile, on the 19th, Saturn moves into Capricorn – your zone of friendship and future plans; focusing your energy on setting healthier boundaries, maximizing your friendships, fulfilling your hopes and wishes, and capitalizing on the professional reputation you’ve built. When the Sun moves into Capricorn on the 21st, followed by Venus on the 25th, it’s time to bring out the social butterfly in you. Networking and connecting with others could be a source of fun and opportunity. Since this zone of your chart is also connected to philanthropy and giving back, getting involved with a worthwhile cause or event could be rewarding.
