Starcast for the week beginning January 18th, 2017
ARIES [Mar 21 - Apr 19]
This past week and even moving into this very moment may have felt like pulling teeth to get anything accomplished, for there would have been something always pulling you off course or getting in the way of your desired progress. It is similar to a fisherman heading out to a favorite river in ideal conditions to fish and never getting one bite on the hook, as your ruler Mars in Pisces has been squaring Saturn, the planet of tests, hurdles and blocks. It can feel as if any effort becomes futile or forced or without results. Fortunately, we will not only be moving beyond that square, but Mercury, the planet of communication and negotiation, in Capricorn, is forming an angle of great support to the North Node, the symbol that pulls you into your future. A little step in the right direction at this point, could feel like a landslide of movement. It is a combative time, but anything worth the fight will be worth what you experience in the end. During the forecast week that follows this one, your ruler will courageously enter your sign, right where you like it and right where you feel your very best.
Tackle what you must in the meantime, knowing your day in the sun sits just beyond the horizon!
TAURUS [Apr 20 - May 21]
Your patience has paid off Taurus. We are pulling out of a square between Mars and Saturn, but just as we do, your ruler Venus in Pisces combines effortlessly and yet powerfully to Pluto in fellow earth sign Capricorn. Any investments you are making for your future will equal a foundation laid, something that will cure with strength over time, an endeavor you can pour your whole Soul into, and something that holds timeless meaning and value. Mercury, the planet of communication is also in Capricorn and aligns strategically to the North Node, the symbol for your destiny, suggesting your words opens doors, and practical yet promising steps can now be taken. You are learning with each passing year, that things tend to happen at just the right time, no matter what you may try and do to speed it up or delay the inevitable. It appears that time has come.
Leap with love and you will land in fields of plenty!
GEMINI [May 22 - Jun 21]
Inch by inch, and day by day, your ruler Mercury works to clear its shadow from the retrograde, which finally occurs Friday, Jan. 27. In the meantime, you still have some work to do and cobwebs to clear from your past. Mercury is in good form and is taking life and your future quite seriously upon entering this forecast week, as Mercury is in earth sign Capricorn and forming a fruitful angle to the North Node, the symbol for your destiny. This allows you to feel like you are finally making some gains in the New Year, and that there will be something not only to celebrate but something you can hang your heart and your hat on. Venus, the planet of what holds value to you, is in your house of career and connecting with Pluto this weekend in a way that earns you some well earned respect and it will have a way of empowering you onward and upward. Not until the Soul has been through its own fair share of hits and hardships, does it know the true meaning of liberation.
Stand strong in your pursuits, waiver not and you will flourish and thrive in no time!
CANCER [Jun 22 - Jul 22]
I don't make the rules of the universe, I only do what I can to help you successfully play by them. Working 'with' versus against the natural laws of these energetic lands becomes vital if the Soul is serious about evolving. It is easy enough to just do nothing, to stay static, but that will be far more painful in the end. Life requires taking emotional risks and when you do, the pay off can be big. At the end of the day it's about becoming fiercely strong in yourself, unwavering in your desire to build upon your tender base, and remembering that it is your sweet, vulnerable essence, that becomes your ultimate strength. Your ruler the moon, is the symbol that governs the emotional body, and it is within this realm where timeless travels initiates, similar to slipping into a river, a body of water that follows the path of least resistance, and allowing it to carry you back to the sea. Everyone has been feeling the push and the weight of the world, whether it was a gravity you carried within you or experiencing someone you love immersed in their own personal struggle. Mars and Saturn have been in stress but just as Mars pulls out of that futile fight, Venus in fellow water sign Cancer, steps in and saves the day, as she recruits Pluto in your opposite sign to anchor you in an energetic tide that propels you into pleasing seas. You have an ideal opportunity to not only deepen into your Soul's journey, but to prosper because of it.
Rise to this celestial occasion!
LEO [Jul 23 - Aug 22]
Just when you thought there was no way out or through, and no one to fix a certain turbulent and troubling tide, something manifests out of thin air to help you resolve it. Mars in Pisces has been squaring Saturn creating a feeling of powerlessness in places which may have had you feeling like you were banging your head against the wall. Mars progressively pulls out of this edgy square and just as he begins to wain, loving Venus, also in Pisces, in your house of the Soul, finds unparalleled strength as she partners with Pluto in Capricorn. You may feel you have greater leverage moving into the weekend, and a stronger foothold on a situation where you have been pretty hard on yourself. Perhaps even blaming yourself for how things have played out. A little forgiveness goes a long way, and a more positive stream of energy will help you release the weight of the past, especially where you know certain things will never be the same again.
A surrendering is required in order for you to feel the full benefit of this energetic promise, to help lift you up and out of a slump and high into the skies for a better, brighter view!
VIRGO [Aug 23 - Sep 22]
Not a Soul in this world enjoys the feeling of being out of control, especially when it involves matters of the heart. This past week may have been pressure building and at times you may have been feeling pressed up against a wall. You need the freedom to come to a decision on your own, without anyone else's influence. Mars in your opposite sign of Pisces has been forming a waxing square to Saturn in your house of the emotional body but will pull off the most heated point on Friday, Jan. 20, yet it will still sizzle some. Yet on the same day and moving into the weekend, loving Venus, also in Pisces, will will be corded to Pluto in fellow earth sign Capricorn, to anchor you in your Soul, so you know firmly what you want and need. Also, your ruler Mercury is currently in Capricorn as well and aligned with ease to the North Node, the symbol for your destiny, helping you clear your mind and feel everything you need to feel without guilt getting in the way. This week is showing you the power of listening to your body and to your heart. It's about loving and respecting yourself enough to not settle for less than what you know your Soul inherently needs and deserves.
It's a fine time to get it!
LIBRA [Sep 23 - Oct 23]
It is time to re-build. Mars in Pisces has been changing the way you dedicate your time and structure your life, it may have taken you to the very edge of fear in the process, but by Friday, Jan. 20, the worst of the damage will feel to be done. Thankfully, your ruler Venus, also in Pisces, knows exactly who to join forces with as she tippy-toes her way into a secure angle to Pluto in Capricorn. This is about knowing who your 'go to' people are in time of need and trusting enough in that connection to help strengthen your power center. This is a wonderful energetic duo for healing and resolution. Peace can be found on the heals of turmoil and tears, and relief can replace remorse. Mercury, the planet of communication, is also connecting in productive ways to the North Node, the symbol for your future, allowing you to take on tough topics without filters knowing there is not a minute to wait, that life is precious, and time must not be squandered. No matter what is going on in your world, know that Venus is ready and willing to help you find your way back into a better state of balance; financially, emotionally, or physically.
She's got a miracle or two up her sleeve. Let her work her magic!
SCORPIO [Oct 24 - Nov 21]
With younger brother Mars recently squaring Saturn, and still not reaching the most critical point until Thursday, Jan.19, in some area of your life there may feel to be a heavy burden or an ongoing struggle. You may have also simply been feeling worn down in ways, and not totally up to snuff or operating at your energetic best. If you are into more spiritual pursuits, it may feel that you are having a difficult time keeping your focus on high, or reaching those sought after spaces in meditation, as this trend has a way of keeping life painfully real, and more earthbound than you would prefer. However, by Friday, Jan.20, Venus in fellow water sign Pisces flies in on an angel's wing, securing a position to your ruler Pluto in Capricorn, helping you in just about any area where you need to get a powerful point across or in connecting more profoundly with those who hold a significant heart space in your Soul. This can also be a dynamically creative time and a period where you can take your most intimate confections to another level. Mars has been pushing you but Venus is fixing to pull you up and directly into her good graces, Scorpio style.
Name your wish and your price, divine payment is coming!
SAGITTARIUS [Nov 22 - Dec 21]
Mars' trek through the sign of Pisces has a way of keeping you all the way inside your emotional feeling self, and although it may not always be a joy ride, it is a ride worth taking. To up the feeling stakes, Mars has been squaring Saturn in your sign, letting you know where you still need to grow and where real surrender will be required. Saturn symbolizes the Soul's desire to control the direction of life in order to feel secure, and yet what these energetic seas are telling you is that there is much that is clearly out of your hands and out of your realm of influence. On a positive note, and I know how well you respond to a bit of hope, loving Venus, also in Pisces, will be serving to help stabilize your stride and your way forward, as she partners with Pluto in Capricorn on Friday, Jan. 20. This can mark a new chapter, a day of formal agreements or simply a commitment that you make to continue to honor your innermost truth. This may be a time where you feel supported by someone who has the power to help you grow either in practical measures, or on a spiritual note and it can be a time where you finally exhale a sigh of relief from recent waiting and wondering. Yet more relief and also desire for inspirational action comes when Mars enters fellow fire sign Aries in my next forecast.
For now, let those higher, invisible forces lead the way!
CAPRICORN [Dec 22 - Jan 19]
With Mars squaring your ruler Saturn, life may have felt more like an ongoing irritant versus a source of support but this intensity will begin to wane after Thursday, Jan.19. Like a changing of the guards, loving Venus in Pisces steps in to replace the edge with an ease of comfort where she can, as she joins hands and forces with Pluto in your sign, to help remind you where the love lives. Love and justice will become the antidote needed this weekend and no better power planet than Pluto in your sign to be her partner in this passionate pursuit. You too will find a way to feel empowered on the heels of all that has been changing and coming undone in your world. A little peace goes a long way and it will have a way of settling any apparent storm, so fuel what feels good and keep on fanning those flames forward. Mercury, the planet of communication, is also in your sign and aligning with perfection to the North Node, the symbol for your future, in Virgo, as we enter this forecast week, so use your voice or your message to make a noticeable dent of a difference and it will inspire you to keep on going for more.
Speak up where it hurts and it will help you turn something that has been upside down, right side up again!
AQUARIUS [Jan 20 - Feb 19]
What is vital to remember in the next several months and something to use to your energetic advantage, is that your ruler Uranus in fire sign Aries, will be forming a stable angle to Saturn in Sagittarius in varying advantageous degrees. There will be periods when you feel this influence more than others, but it will never be out of reach. The bottom line message of this alignment is that you can manifest positive changing circumstances in your life., a change that can stand the test of time, a change that feels secure even though it feels brand new. This is also an auspicious time to implement innovative ideas that were once considered to be crazy. Mars and Saturn have been at odds and will reach a final breaking point on Thursday, Jan.19, but by Friday, Jan. 20, peacemaker Venus will show her true strength as she collaborates with Pluto to make the impossible happen. Together they are offering more than they can ever produce on their own, and in your case they are opening cosmic windows to allow your wishes to reach the ears of someone all the way at the top. Your whispers in the night, often referred to as prayers, are destined to carry a little extra fairy dust.
Try it and you'll see!
PISCES [Feb 19 - Mar 20]
Have you been feeling knocked around or what? With how wide open your energetic field is Pisces, your Soul can feel like a feather in the wind and with Mars currently in your sign while squaring Saturn, you may be feeling like you have had no other choice other than to be a 'yes man'. When the body gets ill, the Soul has no choice but to surrender. If the read tape in an agreement you need to see happen requires you to follow the rules, you have no choice but to comply no matter how ridiculous and time consuming they may be. Fortunately relief finds you by Friday, Jan.20, as loving Venus in your sign throws you a bone and helps you finish a long and tedious process. These are Soul steps now and something occurs this weekend that lets you know that you passed the test. You will be showered with celestial dividends for your patience and perseverance. You are finding your stride again this week Pisces and Mercury in Capricorn will help you put a strategy in place that will set the stage for the long haul, as he aligns with relative ease to the North Node, the symbol for your destiny, in your opposite sign. Regarding an agreement that needs to formally materialize with another, welcome to finally finding your way to the very same page.
This forecast week starts crazy but you eventually find a way to settle and cruise!
