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.

October 2018 Horoscopes

astrology-report-october-2018.jpg

With this month’s New Moon in Libra (Oct 8) and Full Moon in Taurus (Oct 24) both answering to love-and-values-oriented Venus, and Venus going retrograde on October 5, we can expect October to be a month of reevaluation. No matter if we’re being called to start something new or let something go, our focus will be on whether it’s worth it. This theme will apply especially to relationships, our sense of self-worth, our personal values, and our relationship to money. Venus retrograde in Scorpio (Oct 5-31) will ask that reevaluate our desires and the power dynamics within our most intimate relationships while Venus re-entering Libra (Oct 31) will ask that we reevaluate the relationships we share with others across the board.

Meanwhile, Scorpio season (Oct 23) will challenge us to dig deep and face our fears, own our shadows, sit with our emotions, and trust our intuition when it comes to connecting to ourselves and connecting with others. Truth, both acknowledging it and speaking it will be also a part of our journey this month, as communicative Mercury enters Scorpio on October 9, followed by a move into Sagittarius on October 31.

Monthly Horoscopes for November 2017

november.jpg

Aries: Your finances continue to be a focus as November opens with a Full Moon in Taurus landing in your zone of income, self-worth, and possessions on November 4th. Under the influence of this moon, an income stream could come to an end or you could be pushed to change your financial habits. One message that this Moon is bringing for you for though, is the need for you to better honor your worth. That means if you've been underselling your skills or putting up with a job that undervalues you, this full moon will remind you that you can't survive this way. As a matter of fact, your focus should be on thriving, instead of just scraping by. As such, you may want to kick your job search into high gear, with an emphasis on finding something worth your while as opposed to a quick-fix kind of job. Yes, bills need to be paid, but if you keep wasting your time on menial, dead-end jobs it won't get you any closer to where you want to be. Trust that if you're putting in the work and you've taken a shot at getting something you want, the universe will respond in kind. That's why on November 5th, communication planet Mercury will be moving into Sagittarius (your zone of travel, opportunity, and education) to help you build up your faith, so you can see what's really possible. Mercury will be motivating you to open your mind and shift your perspective. Your options will no longer seem as bleak as they may seem right now. You’ve got to be open to something new though.

By November 7th, Venus – the planet of love and money – moves into Scorpio; your zone of intimacy, finances, and rebirth. In matters of the heart, Venus could help you with attracting a deeper, soulful kind of love as the casual flings won’t cut it. Though if you’ve been down on love, hosting Venus in this area of your chart could also help you with healing heartbreak and moving on. Sometimes it takes a bit of bottoming out to get to a place where you can start fresh. Look to the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18th, to help you kick start your emotional healing. Hint: part of this work may mean that you’ll have to come to terms with your dark side, as well as beginning the process of owning those pieces of you that you’ve been taught were bad, ugly, or undeserving. Since this zone is also connected to money, this new moon could also help you with achieving financial freedom. Strategize ways that you (and your partner, if applicable) can pay off debt and get your books in order. If you do have a partner, the two of you may decide to pool your resources together at this time for a joint investment, like buying a house or condo. If you need a loan, this moon can help. On the 21st, the Sun moves into Sagittarius, putting the spotlight back on your sense of adventure. Spending time in a different country or city, taking classes, and pursuing new experiences will rejuvenate you. Meanwhile, Neptune going forward in Pisces (your zone of retreat and healing) on November 22nd, helps to restore your faith in something bigger.

Taurus: Like Michael Jackson once said, “you are not alone”. There are people in your corner that are ready to love and support you and this month, your job is to connect with them. Though in order to do so, you may have to be willing to let go of the notion that it’s just you against the world. That’s why the Full Moon in Taurus, landing in your zone of confidence and self-image on November 4th, will be motivating you to heal and release your old wounds. At the same time, some of your relationships may experience a shakeup as you’re also called to let go of stagnant and self-limiting connections. When communicative Mercury moves into Sagittarius on November 5th and into your zone of intimacy, finances, and rebirth; you’re asked to dive deep into the spaces of your heart and soul to see the ways that you may have been giving your power and attention away to the unworthy. Mercury will be asking that you get more comfortable with your intuition, as ignoring it will only lead to you feeling more mistrustful of yourself and others. The key here is using your intuitive power to suss out the people that are truly genuine while keeping the fugazi ones at arms length. Writing down your feelings in a journal or discussing them with a therapist could be cathartic for you. If you’re a creative type, you might also opt to work out these thoughts and feelings in a creative piece. In terms of finances, Mercury will also help you to work out a budget to improve your savings or reduce your debts.

By the 7th, Venus (your patron saint) moves into the deep waters of Scorpio and into your zone of partnerships. With Venus’ help, you could meet someone with commitment potential, if single and looking, while those of you already in relationships could re-devote yourselves to the love you have. Since this zone also covers business partnerships, you should also look towards joining forces with others that can help you to make more money. That’s why the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18th will be helping you to establish the right connections, in your professional life as well as your romantic life. However, if relationships have been a sore spot for you, look to this moon to help you with clearing space for the kinds of people that you want and deserve to have in your life. Know that you don’t have to settle or cling to “almost, not quite right” relationships out of fear of being alone. With Scorpio it’s either all or nothing, no halfway. This theme of all or nothing will be especially strong come November 21st, when the Sun moves into Sagittarius, continuing the work that Mercury in Sagittarius started. Over the next few weeks, while the Sun travels here, you should expect to do a soul recon mission of sorts, as the cosmos asks you to get in deeper touch with your truest desires. Why do think that you shouldn’t have what you want? Is it because you’ve been taught to accept a life full of hardship? Allow Sagittarius season to help you to reconnect to abundance, true love, and pleasure.

Gemini: This month you may find out that it’s all about learning how to balance your needs with the needs of others without losing yourself or making yourself crazy in the process. Thanks to the Full Moon in Taurus (November 4th) that lands in your zone of rest, endings and healing; part of this work will require that you address your needs at the outset. As an intellectual Air sign, you often live in your head and get uncomfortable when it comes to feeling your feelings, but this full moon will push you to pay attention to them. As you pave the way for new things and experiences to enter your life, know that you have to be willing to let go of anything that isn’t working for you. Under this moon, this could mean an attachment to the past, an old emotional wound, or a build-up of resentments. If you find yourself feeling particularly unable to let go or move on, this moon could also inspire you to seek the help of a therapist or spiritual guide, especially as Mercury (your patron saint) moves into Sagittarius on November 5th and into your zone of partnership; encouraging you to build a winning team. On the 7th, pleasure loving Venus moves into Scorpio, your zone of health, work, and routine. With Venus here, this could be a good time to ramp up your self-care regimen by making sure to get good foods to eat (treats included) and enough beauty rest. When it comes to your professional life, Venus could also help you to find a new job or your workday to go much smoother.

On the 18th, the New Moon in Scorpio steps in to help you with getting your sh*t together. Consider this moon a gift from the universe as you’ll find that getting back on track when it comes to a fitness program or a daily schedule will be much easier to do. At the same time, since Scorpio is a sign that loves to purge anything that’s considered dead weight, you could also use this moon to help you initiate a mind and body detox. This could include cutting back on alcohol or quitting smoking, as well as clearing out any clutter that you may have in your office or living space. Either way, the goal is to practice taking care of your needs first, so you can operate from a full place instead of a depleted one. On the 21st, the Sun moves into Sagittarius, bringing the attention back to partnerships. In terms of love, some Gemini could meet someone new while those of you that are already attached, may find yourselves focused on your shared goals or interests. With Mercury also in Sagittarius, look to establishing relationships that offer something new for you to learn or experience. Though that doesn’t mean that everyone is invited to the party though. Connecting with people one-on-one will make for genuine, longer lasting relationships. On the 22nd, when Neptune moves forward again in Pisces, your zone of career and achievement, things won’t seem so foggy or uncertain like before.

Cancer: You’ve got big plans, but how willing are you to do what it takes to follow through on them? This might be the question that needs an answer this month as the planets bring attention to your long range plans and the things you’re truly passionate about. Your journey begins on November 4th, with the Full Moon in Taurus landing in your zone of friendship, hopes, and wishes. With the help of this full moon, you’re pushed to release any doubts or fears that you have around moving forward and pursuing what you really want. If you haven’t figured out by now, the universe is ready for you to stop playing yourself small. That means it’s time to grab the bull by its horns (thank you, Taurus) and don’t let go. This may even mean breaking away from your tried and true methods in favor for a fresh approach. On November 5th, Mercury, the planet of details and communication, moves into Sagittarius; your zone of work, health, and routines. With Mercury at home in this zone of your chart, its job will be to help you work out the fine details in your planning and strategy. This may include looking at ways to develop and hone your marketable skills, as well as devising ways to simplify your life. Hint: it’s time to cut back on the distractions. Though don’t think it’ll be all work and no play this month, as sweet and charming Venus finally leaves your home zone on November 7th and moves into Scorpio – your zone of love, creativity, and fun.

Venus will be on hand to remind you how irresistible you are, which means that you could start a promising romance over the weeks that follow, while those of you already in relationships could find yourselves being healed through the power of love. Since Venus is also connected to creative endeavors and money, you may be able to draw in some extra cash by putting yourself and your talents out there in a big way. Again, the theme for this month is to show up and show out! By the 18th, the New Moon in Scorpio swings through, pushing you to deep dive into your passions. When it comes to the progress you make this month, it’s all about focusing on the things that touch your heart. Keep this in mind – if you’re heart isn’t 100% into something; whether it be an offer, a project, or a person – leave it alone. On the 21st, the focus shifts back to your health and routines when the Sun moves into Sagittarius. Over the next few weeks, expect to work on improving your health, balancing your work-life schedule, and breaking unhealthy habits. For some of you, this might be a good time to clean out those closets and donate what you’re no longer using to charity. On the 22nd, Neptune begins moving forward again in Pisces; your zone of travel, education, and opportunity which may be helpful for restoring your faith in what’s possible. Believe in you.

Leo: Fulfillment is the theme for you this month, as the stars align to help you make sure you’re getting the most bang for your proverbial buck. It all begins with the Full Moon in Taurus on November 4th, which lands in your zone of career and achievement. Under this moon, you could decide to make a swift exit from your current job, especially if you haven’t been feeling happy at what you do. While a title and status looks good to others and on a resume, it doesn’t mean much if you don’t enjoy what you do or the position you’re in. Your career should be challenging yes, but not at the expense of your well-being, remember that. Should you find yourself looking for a new job, this moon can help you to use the reputation you’ve built to leverage a better opportunity. And if you’re happy where you are professionally, this full moon could also help you to garner attention and accolades from some very influential people. Don’t be surprised if suddenly everyone wants to work with you or know more about what you do. Overall, when it comes to your career, it’s time to stop dialing it in. Think about things that make you want to get out of bed in the morning and strategize ways you can capitalize on them. Thankfully, Mercury enters Sagittarius (your zone of creativity and passion) on November 5th which will help you to get your juices flowing again. With the planet of thought and communication in this zone, your brain should be moving a mile a minute with inspiration and ideas.

Though this month won’t solely be about your professional life. Your home and family life will also call for your attention, but in a good way. That’s because pleasure-loving Venus will be moving into Scorpio, your zone of home and family, on November 7th.  As such, you may decide to redecorate or rearrange your living space, which could do wonders in improving the energy in your home as well as your mood. Entertaining guests at your home and spending time with close family and friends will also be a source of delight. If you’ve been hunting for a new place to live, Venus in Scorpio, coupled with the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18th, could help you to magnetize your dream home. Speaking of the new moon, if you’ve been holding on to any hurt or resentment around a strained relationship with a family member (most likely a parent), this moon may also help you with mending the rift between you or finding the healing you need to move forward. On the 21st, the Sun enters Sagittarius. With the Sun shining it’s light here, your own radiance will be hard to ignore. As such, you could find yourself with more than your fair share of adoring fans and admirers, some of which will catch your eye too. If you’re already in a relationship, you and your bae will be in the mood to rekindle the romance. On November 22nd, Neptune goes forward again in Pisces, your zone of intimacy and finances, which could help to clear up a pending or confusing financial matter.

Virgo: This month, your lesson is to figure out ways you can better put your words and ideas to work for you. Your mission begins on November 4th, with the Full Moon in Taurus landing in your zone of travel, education, and opportunity. With the help of this full moon, you could be offered the chance to teach or study abroad, or land an opportunity to get published. Think of this as your chance to bring your voice to a larger audience, allowing you to positively impact the world with what you have to say. You just have to be willing to speak up and be heard. Meanwhile, this moon is calling you to break free of self-defeating attitudes and thinking, all the while pushing you to reach for some of your biggest dreams. On the 5th, Mercury (your patron saint) leaves your zone of communication and steps into Sagittarius, your zone of home and family. This means that over the next few weeks, you may find that much of your attention is focused on something related to your home life or past. This could involve buying or selling a home, moving or relocating, or taking a trip down memory lane with family. If you need to open up to someone at this time about something you’ve been feeling or that’s been weighing on you, Mercury could also help you to get the closure or resolution that you need.      

When charming Venus moves into Scorpio on November 7th and into your zone of communication, expect your powers of charm and flirtation to go up several notches. Put this power to good use by striking up conversations and setting up meetings with people you want to get close to, as these will be the folks that will help you spread the word when it comes to something you may want to market or release to the public. At the same time, the creative inspiration you receive now will be hard to ignore, which means the ideas you generate could help you to bring in some extra money. As such, humility will only get you so far. Don’t undersell or underestimate your talent. You’ve got something worth sharing and as it turns out, it’s pretty valuable too. Look to the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18th to help you with implementing any plans that you may have along these lines. Since this area of your chart also has to do with your skill set, you may even decide to return to school or take a training course to beef up your arsenal. On November 21st, the Sun moves into Sagittarius, bringing the attention back to your home and family. Over the next few weeks, your job will be to improve your sense of stability and to make sure you’re getting the emotional nourishment you need. On the 22nd, Neptune begins moving forward again in Pisces, your zone of partnerships which could help you with releasing a flimsy relationship.                        

Libra: To paraphrase the Wu-Tang Clan – cash rules everything around you this month, C.R.E.A.M, get the money. That’s because there’s a Full Moon in Taurus landing in your zone of intimacy and finances on November 4th, which could have you ready to take a big step with your bae. As such, the two of you could decide to put a down a payment on a home, car, or your wedding planning expenses. If debt has been a problem for you, this moon could also help you to come up with a manageable repayment plan or a better budget. Either way, your financial security takes precedence this month, which means you could get the opportunity to build yourself a more solid foundation. For those of you recovering from heartbreak, this moon could also provide you with the push to move on and heal. With Taurus being a sign that’s associated with self-worth, the full moon can help you to see where you may need to take back your power and let go of those that don’t honor or respect you. You deserve the world, Libra. Don’t allow anyone to make you feel any different. By the 5th, communicative Mercury moves into Sagittarius, your zone of communication. With Mercury at home in this zone, use the next couple of weeks to get your hands on as many new books, articles, podcasts, films, etc. that you can handle as your mind will be hungry for new info and points of view. If you have your own media project that you’d like to share, Mercury can help you to generate listeners and buzz.

On the 7th, when Venus (your patron saint) moves into Scorpio, your zone of income and possessions, get ready to make it rain. Tap into Venus’ power of attraction to draw the right job opportunity, client, or cash cow. Hint: it should be something that lights you up at the mere thought of it. Oh, and keep thinking about it to draw it to you faster. While there should be an abundance of opportunities to increase your cash flow, things may not really pop off financially until November 18th. That’s when the New Moon in Scorpio lands to help you reset your money making mojo. Meanwhile, this new moon will also be pushing you to get better with how you manage your money as well. Still, Venus will be giving you the urge to splurge, which means you shouldn’t feel bad about treating yourself to something nice. Just try not to break the bank. On the 21st, the Sun moves into Sagittarius, putting the focus back on your zone of communication. This means your source of warmth and energy will come from connecting with the world around you. Networking, socializing; both on and offline, will be key for you this month when it comes to getting ahead. Opportunities that you find may come by who you know or via word of mouth so keep your eyes and ears open. On the 22nd, when Neptune begins moving forward again in Pisces; your zone of work, health, and routine – you’ll no longer be spinning your wheels.

Scorpio: You’re the darling of the moment, Scorpio, and this month shows no signs of that ending anytime soon. Part of this is because of the Full Moon in Taurus landing in your zone of partnership on November 4th. With the help of this full moon, you could find yourself saying goodbye to a dead-end relationship, which could be romantic or professional. With things glowing up for you, the last thing you need is to be carrying around dead weight or dealing with unnecessary distractions. Though if things are running smoothly between you and your bae, you could decide to take things to the next level with each other; further deepening your bond. On the 5th, it’s time to talk about money, honey, as busy Mercury moves into your zone of income and self-worth. Budgeting, tracking down money owed to you, as well as sending out resumes and job applications may be a big focus this month. Overall, you should expect to spend lots of time discussing your cash and looking for ways you can bring in more of it. Consulting or freelancing may be options. On November 7th, magnetic Venus moves into Scorpio, your zone of self-image and confidence. With Venus ramping up your attraction factor, expect to be the one this month that everyone wants (I know, as if this were different from any other day). Though it won’t just be about whose attention you’re grabbing. Venus will be making sure that you fall back in love with yourself too.

Look to the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18th, as an opportunity to revamp or update your wardrobe, step out with a fresh new ‘do, or to turn over a new leaf when it comes to your self-care. As such, you could decide to begin a new fitness program and drop a few pounds or increase your body positivity and learn to love yourself as is. Either way, the focus is on being kinder to yourself not pushing yourself to extremes. On the 21st, the Sun enters Sagittarius, pulling your attention back to your money. With the abundance that Sagittarius season has to offer, your goal will be to remove the blockages that you may have around prosperity and receiving, which may mean healing the wounds that scarcity or instability may have caused you in the past. Part of this healing may be recognizing how much you are loved. While you are a fighter, everything does not have to be a fight. Trust that what’s meant for you will find you. On the 22nd, Neptune ends its five month retrograde in Pisces, your zone of romance and creativity. With the planet of faith, dreams, and illusions moving forward again, you may finally decide to move forward with a creative idea or make the decision to let go of someone you can’t quite seem to pin down. The key here is not to fool yourself into thinking this person will change or become the person you need them to be. As for your creative efforts, be mindful of giving your talent away for free.

Sagittarius: Happy Birthday, Sagittarius! Your personal new year is here. Though before you get into the festivities, it looks like there’s a few loose ends that you need to tie up first, especially when it comes to your health and healing. Thanks to a Full Moon in Taurus lighting up your zone of work, health, and routine on November 4th, it’s time to put an end to any unhealthy habits that may be getting in the way of you feeling your best. What does your sleep schedule look like? Are you getting enough water? Is your skin bright and glowing or dull and dry? Are you going a little too heavy on the alcohol or sweet treats? This full moon will motivate you to get your health under control. Just remember to implement your changes bit by bit and take things one day at a time. No use in biting off more than you can handle right now anyway. At the same time, you could decide to quit a job around this time, especially if it’s been causing you more stress and aggravation than it’s worth. If you do decide to leave, don’t worry too much about whether or not you’ll be able to find something else. The universe has got your back. On November 5th, communicative Mercury is the first to arrive to your birthday party; stepping into Sagittarius and into your zone of confidence and self-image. As such, your focus turns to meeting and greeting all sorts of new people while creating new experiences and opportunities with each conversation and connection you make.

On the 7th, pleasure-seeking Venus moves into Scorpio; your zone of rest, healing, and retreat. With the help of Venus, your job will be to ramp up your self-care regimen which may include yoga classes, swimming sessions, bodywork like Reiki or massage, or a meditation retreat. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself wanting to spend more time alone. You need the time away to rest and replenish your well. A note: since hosting Venus in this zone also means the chance of developing a behind the scenes love affair, just make sure that the person you set your sights on is really who they say they are, as it might not be so apparent at the start. If they seem too good to be true, they probably are. On the 18th, the New Moon in Scorpio helps you to turn over a new leaf when it comes to a spiritual practice or establishing a healthier work-life balance. Overall, your soul is looking for some nourishment. Feed it. This will help you with clearing out any emotional gunk or residue from the past, so you can make way for a brighter future. Come the 21st, when the Sun moves into Sagittarius, kicking off your birthday season, you’ll be in a better position to receive all the goodies coming your way. As such, consider this moment a reset button of sorts, which will help you to move forward and not look back. Baby steps, though. On the 22nd, Neptune begins moving forward again in Pisces, your zone of home and family. It’s time to put an unhealthy family legacy to rest.

Capricorn: There’s a saying that goes “insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” When it comes to November, this may be something that you’ll want to keep in mind, as this month is about letting go of what no longer works and taking a fresh approach. Your quest begins on November 4th, when the Full Moon in Taurus lands in your zone of romance and creativity. Under the influence of this moon, you could decide to bring an end to an unsatisfying love affair or have a realization of sorts on the ways in which you hold yourself back from greatness. Hint: stop dimming your light. If you’ve been plugging away at something creative, this moon could also land you in the spotlight, so don’t be shy about soaking up the attention that you deserve. On the 5th, Mercury, the planet of communication, moves into Sagittarius; your zone of rest and healing. With Mercury working behind the scenes, your focus turns inward. Though this is not about occupying your mind with worrisome thoughts and self-doubt. In fact, it will be quite the opposite. Use Mercury to help you practice mindfulness (the power of being present to the moment) and engage the power of meditation. The goal here is to give your mind a rest and to develop your intuition. Journal writing, dream interpretation, and therapy could be beneficial too.

On November 7th, charming Venus leaves your career zone and moves into Scorpio; your zone of friendship and future plans. With Venus bringing the social butterfly out of you and putting you in everyone’s good graces, you should be able to network your way into an impressive opportunity in no time. If you have money to raise for a good cause or a crowdfund project, Venus will also be on hand to help you. Meanwhile, spending time in the company of good friends will do wonders to uplift your spirits. Overall, Venus in Scorpio will be helping you to magnetize the resources you need in order to make your hopes and wishes come true. Though this may mean that you’ll have to be willing to try something different. That’s why the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18th, will be helping you along; encouraging you to live by your own rules as opposed to playing it safe or following someone else’s blueprint. In other words, it’s time for you to show up for yourself. On the 21st, the Sun moves into Sagittarius, pulling you back inward. While the Sun is in this low-powered zone of your chart, your goal will be to catch up on your rest and to spend time in comfortable solitude; doing a bit of spiritual housekeeping. Allow Sagittarius season to help you restore your faith in yourself as well as a faith that the universe has your back. On the 22nd, when Neptune goes direct in Pisces, your zone of communication, you should feel inspired again.

Aquarius: With your star on the rise, you’re being called to level up across the board when it comes to your life. As such, you should expect some significant developments this month when it comes to where you are personally and professionally. It all begins on November 4th, with the Full Moon in Taurus landing in your zone of home and family. With the help of this moon, you could finalize a deal when it comes to owning your own home or getting the apartment you’ve been wanting. At the same time, if you’ve been dealing with an overbearing parent or a toxic family member, this moon could also push you to set down some healthier boundaries. Ultimately the goal of this Taurus Moon is to help you clear anything getting in the way of your comfort, stability, and peace of mind. On the 5th, communicative Mercury moves into Sagittarius; your zone of friendship and future plans. Over the next few weeks, you’ll find yourself being in the right place at the right time when it comes to connecting with others, on and offline. As a result, you could meet people with enough clout and influence to help you capitalize on the stellar reputation that you’ve been building. As such, don’t underestimate the power of word of mouth. Meanwhile, you might be called to organize an event or initiative for a worthwhile cause. Mercury will be on your side helping to ensure that things go according to plan. A note: Mercury will be going retrograde next month so try to get as much done as you can this month.

On the 7th, money-making Venus steps into Scorpio; your zone of career and achievement. With Venus helping to turn up your wow factor, you can use this time to leverage yourself a pay raise, promotion, or glowing references from some of the most influential people in your field. Just make sure you continue to bring your A game as all eyes will be on you. That said, you might also garner some media buzz or attention as the result of your name being the one on everyone’s lips right now. Though look to the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18th to make your move if you’ve been thinking about switching gears in your career, starting your own business, or going after a position with more prestige and better pay. The new moon will be helping you to implement whatever plans you set into motion at this time, so shoot for the stars. On the 21st, the Sun moves into Sagittarius, bringing the focus back to your friendships and associations. Over the next month, focus on building genuine connections with others that give back as much as they receive from you. There’s no reason why you should be carrying all the weight all the time. (There goes that need for boundaries again). At the same time, when it comes to fulfilling something you been wishing for, Sagittarius season will remind you there’s more than one way to get to where you want to be. Don’t get stuck in tunnel vision. On the 22nd, when Neptune begins moving direct again in Pisces; your zone of income and finances, it’s time to stop measuring yourself by what you have or don’t have.

Pisces: To paraphrase your fellow Pisces, Erykah Badu – I know you’ve got to get your hustle on. That’s why there will be a bevy of planets floating through your zone of career and achievement once Sagittarius season gets underway. But before you get there, the Full Moon in Taurus (November 4th) that lands in your zone of communication, will be on hand to help you make a mental breakthrough. This will be especially important for you if you’ve been feeling blocked or unclear as to what direction you should take, as this moon will be helping you to clear out the cobwebs and tap into your intuition. At the same time, if you have a project or event that you’d like to share with the public, this moon can also help you to spread your message far and wide. Speaking of your message, on November 5th, Mercury moves into Sagittarius – your career zone. This means that you could get the opportunity to speak or present at a major event or in the company of some major movers and shakers in your field. As such, you’ll have to polish up your presentation and study up, as you’ll want to leave a positive, lasting impression. On the 7th, pleasure-seeking Venus moves into Scorpio; your zone of travel, opportunity, and education. If you haven’t been feeling the excitement yet of the good things that are developing for you, take a cue from Venus and pursue anything and everything that gets your heart pumping.

Meanwhile, the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18th, pushes you to move beyond your comfort zone. Traveling or getting a change of scenery could help you to open your mind to new possibilities and fill you with inspiration. The goal of this moon is to help you to reconnect to your thirst for life and sense of adventure. Since this zone also handles media and publishing, you may want to consider pitching article ideas to editors or beginning the proposal for the book you’ve always wanted to write. With Venus and the new moon sharing the same space in your chart, a romance could sweep you off of your feet too. You might find yourself falling for someone of a different culture or of a different zip code. Either way, this person may be able to open up your world in ways that you can’t imagine. On the 21st, the Sun moves into Sagittarius, pulling your focus back to obtaining boss level status. This means your source of confidence and creativity will come by way of pursuing some of your biggest goals and ambitions. With all eyes on you now, don’t hold yourself back with self-doubt. The universe is calling you to step-up and take your life into your own hands. What will you do with it? Here’s a hint: own your power. On the 22nd, Neptune (your patron saint) ends its five month retrograde in Pisces, your zone of confidence and self-image. With Neptune moving forward again, you should feel like you’re moving forward too. It’s time to do the damn thing.

Here's What's In Store For May - May 2017 Monthly Horoscopes!

You should be feeling back on track this month as Mercury begins moving forward again in Aries, your zone of confidence and self-image, on May 3. With charming Venus (now in Aries) also back in this zone, you should have a better sense of what you want and where you want to go moving forward. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself wanting a makeover too as you’ll be wanting a new look that matches your new outlook on life. Meanwhile, hosting Venus and Mercury in your sign means that you have the power of persuasion now, especially with Mars in talkative Gemini camped out in your zone of communication. With the help of this cosmic combination, it won’t be hard to win friends, influence others, talk yourself into an opportunity, or attract love. If you have something you want to promote, launch, publish, screen, or build an audience for – May is your month to do it, especially as the Sun enters Gemini on the 20th, followed by a New Moon in Gemini on the 25th. Writing, media, networking, and gathering new experiences will be your source of strength and good energy.

Before Gemini season arrives though, there’s some unfinished business for you to handle first thanks to the Full Moon in Scorpio (May 10) landing in your zone of finances, intimacy, and rebirth. Under this full moon, you may be pushed to put the kibosh on an intimate relationship that’s become more controlling or manipulative than supportive and nurturing. Meanwhile when it comes to your finances, you could be making a big step towards your financial security like purchasing life insurance or your own house. Either way, look to this full moon to help you find the courage to grow up in some way. The theme of money and the things you value will continue as Mercury enters Taurus, your zone of income and possessions on May 16. With Mercury here, it’s time to go over your financials and pay closer attention to the money going in and out of your bank account, as well as your perceptions around scarcity and abundance. It’s time to see the glass as half full instead of the other way around.

As your birthday season continues, you can consider this month to be a re-set of sorts, especially when it comes to your relationships, money, and the things you value. With Mercury moving forward again in Aries (your zone of rest, healing, and retreat) by May 3, you should be able to find the courage to let something you’ve been fearing go. With Mercury in one of the most sensitive zones of your chart, your intuition is spot now on, you just have to make sure you allow yourself to get quiet enough to hear it, especially with Venus in Aries calling you towards better self-care. Having Mercury in fearless Aries though, is like having that little voice in your head that tells you that you can do anything. It’s time to trust that voice, as it really means trusting yourself – especially as multiple planets begin lining up in Gemini, your zone of self-worth, income, and possessions. Mars in Gemini already kicked off the party last month, pushing you to be more demanding about getting the things that you’ve been working so hard for, while making sure others respect those demands.

And speaking of others, on May 10 a Full Moon in Scorpio lands in your zone of relationships, which may push you to end a bad relationship or force you to see someone close to you as they really are. If there’s been a drought in your love life, this full moon could also bring an end to that as well. By the 16th, when Mercury enters Taurus, your zone of self-confidence and self-image, your words will carry special power, so make sure you’re using them to speak what you want into existence. Be mindful of how you use phrases like “I can’t”, “I won’t”, “I don’t have”, “I am”, etc. On another note, you can use Mercury to meet and connect with others in a way that could lead to an opportunity or two. Prepare to sing your own praises. By the 20th, when the Sun enters Gemini, the spotlight turns back to your money and self-worth. It’s time to put yourself in spaces, working or not, that make you feel valued and productive. No more holding onto people or things out of fear. On the 25th, look to the New Moon in Gemini to help you with manifesting a new source of income.

 

Happy Birthday, Gemini! With a brand new year ahead of you and nearly half the cosmos behind you this month, you may feel like you can’t be stopped.

When Mercury enters Taurus on the 16th, it’s time for a mental sabbatical of sorts as your creativity and intuition only shine through when you give yourself enough quiet and solitude.

February 2017 Horoscopes

Aries: Welcome to your reinvention. If last month was all about surrender, release, and sleep; this month it’s all about victory, manifesting, and momentum. Not only do you have Mars, your ruling planet, back home in Aries (your zone of self-confidence and self-image) but Venus will be joining Mars in this zone on February 3rd. Having Venus in your sign is important because wherever she goes, she brings lots of opportunities for love, pleasure, and financial rewards. With Venus and Mars on your side over the next few weeks, it means that you’ll have just the right amount of confidence, charm, and creativity to get what you want and do what you want, which means that now is not the time to lose focus or steam when it comes to your goals and plans. Because we’re dealing with some fresh, yet unstable energy this month, it’s important to remain centered, grounded, and specific about what you want especially when it comes to love and relationships.

About love and relationships; when Jupiter begins its four-month retrograde in Libra, your zone of marriage and partnerships, on February 6th, you may need to reassess a relationship, your beliefs about relationships or marriage, or review a lesson in love. One theme that you may notice that’s been coming up for you over and over since Jupiter has been in Libra is how you can’t always go it alone. With Mars and Venus being in Aries, the downside is that it can make you too egocentric or give you the feeling that you don’t need anyone. If it’s one lesson that 2017 is teaching us, it’s how much we need the love and support of other people to thrive. This theme repeats for you yet again, by the 7th when Mercury enters Aquarius, your zone of friendship and community. With Mercury here, friendship and allyship will be an important part in helping you bring your ideas to life as well as capitalizing on the impressive resume you’ve been building. Also, if social justice or tech is your focus, Mercury in Aquarius can help you move masses.

On the 10th, your love life and self-confidence come back into focus when an influential Lunar Eclipse in Leo lands in your zone of romance, creativity, and adventure. Over the six months that follow this eclipse, you may end a relationship, end the single life, or be moved to creatively express yourself in a way that pushes you into the public eye. Since this zone of your chart is also connected to children, some Leo may be expecting. However, if children aren’t on your must have list right now, make sure you plan wisely as eclipses can deliver sudden news.
