Starcast for the week beginning December 11th, 2013
ARIES [Mar 21 - Apr 19]
It is the holidays after all and a bit of stress inevitably accompanies the season. For many the weather has been an integral factor in causing a wrench in the usual plans but even if you have remained in sunny territory there is an inner angst that you may be experiencing. Your ruler, Mars, is in your opposite sign and is progressively opposing radical Uranus. This can create an unsettling feeling in particular in key relationships such as family and love interests . There may be feelings and emotions that have been bottled up that you may not be able to contain any longer. Do not be surprised if you launch a few verbal missiles or find yourself speaking in bottom lines. Ultimately you need to ask yourself if whatever you are involved in is helping you grow. If it is only causing you stress and strife, you know the answer. If there is still much to learn from your involvement, it will be about learning to channel the elevated nervous energy in a way that promotes positive change. Uranus in your sign stations direct on Monday, Dec. 16 and helps you objectify your current reality, allowing you to secure the change you need while detaching in an emotionally productive way. Surrender to larger forces and you will find a more tolerable comfort zone!
May the God force be with you!
TAURUS [Apr 20 - May 21]
So much to do and not nearly enough time. This week can create a true feeling of overwhelm as Mars in your house of tasks progressively opposes unpredictable Uranus. It will be important to pace yourself, making sure you are allowing yourself to breathe while taking care of your own health needs. This includes exercise, eating well and getting enough sleep, although more than likely you may not be sleeping as well as usual. There can be a tendency to focus on something so trivial now that it keeps you up at night and obstructs what it most important in your life. You may find that people are standing on your last nerve so be mindful of this as you along with those around you may be in a hyper-reactive place. Venus, your ruler is slowing down its motion now in Capricorn in your house of truth and will reverse its direction next week. Understand that this will provide a slowing down within your own Soul to align with what feels natural and true for you. Prepare to inwardly simplify so you can feel more unified with the intended vision for your future. Your relationships will also benefit when you slow down and can be fully present in those spaces.
Personal expansion leads to greater connection!
GEMINI [May 22 - Jun 21]
It is not quite time to relax. Just when you thought you could cruise a little, more relationship drama rears its potentially (ugly) head. Mars in Libra, the sign of relationships, opposes Uranus, the planet of surprise for the next few weeks so it will be best to stay on your toes. This time of year does not much allow for a great deal of ease as so many are rushing around stressed and in a hurry. The holidays inevitably bring up unresolved family dynamics that can be easily triggered by an apparently minor mishap. The best way to handle this next period of time is to keep an open heart and an honest dialogue going, as well as being adaptable for change. As much stress as this opposition can at times create it also energizes a liberation from old patterns that have prevented key relationships from growing. This is also your chance to say what you need to say and free yourself from any emotions you have been holding and hanging onto.
Lastly, this is about mixing things up and enjoying a little spontaneity with the ones you love. Trust me, these adventures will prove to deepen a desirable bond!
CANCER [Jun 22 - Jul 22]
As Mars now moves through your house of home and the emotional body, you may experience an increasing sensitivity, even more than you naturally feel simply by the nature of being born under the sign of Cancer. It will no doubt create a rub on those vulnerable spots but this is with the intent to ultimately strengthen you and bring you back into a better state of balance. Mars will also progressively oppose Uranus, the planet of transformation and although this transit can tend to elevate anxiety levels, it is also working to alter your inner vibration, to force you to face your fears so you can attract more of what you want and less of what you would rather avoid. At times the only answer is to swim in whatever emotional waters are present. The act of being inside the emotion will allow you to align with a current that can carry you safely to shore. In a more practical sense, balancing home and the demands of career may also be causing some stress and irritability. With Saturn in fellow water sign Scorpio forming a supportive trine to Jupiter in your sign, you are on the threshold of actualizing another level of expression of your creative life purpose!
Wherever you are Cancer, be there, as present as you can possibly be, and more meaning will be brought to the moment!
LEO [Jul 23 - Aug 22]
Strong talks and exchanges that you have with others have enough voltage to dramatically alter points of view or prior beliefs. You will be communicating directly, honestly and at times curtly if you are not being heard but this will have some clear effects on changing some old dynamics. There will not be a stone un-turned and this is a good thing as once all is out in the open, real change can finally take place. Mars in your house of communication is progressively opposing Uranus in the next few weeks which will keep tensions high and at times conversations that feel unpredictable. You may also need to maintain a flexibility as it relates to your travel plans as there is no telling what might de-rail your arrangements. Something may be trying to slow you down so you can regain focus on what is of top priority. At the end of the day it is about getting to the bottom line of what your Soul needs and the best way forward. In the next few weeks you learn that this involves being impeccably honest with yourself and others, even if it hurts. This, in and of itself will free you up in unthinkable ways.
With Saturn in your house of home, you are getting real with those whom you share this space, but as Saturn connects powerfully to Jupiter in your house of the unseen, healing of a miraculous kind is at your Soul's door step!
VIRGO [Aug 23 - Sep 22]
If anything in your life feels stagnant or outmoded, it is destined to morph and change. Desire is the key and will dictate which direction your life goes. When there is a desire for something new, there is inevitably the feeling of insecurity that accompanies this need for change. Fears of security may be surfacing now for you Virgo as Mars in your house of how you earn is progressively opposing Uranus creating a feeling of uncertainty or in some cases utter boredom with respect to your work arena. You may wish to empower yourself in new ways in order to bring more meaning and value to your work by utilizing more of your creative self and/or helping others more effectively. A certain earning process has run its course. You are tired of the old ways and are determined to spice things up. There may be an element of risk involved but you can feel a rebellion burning. You are practical enough not to take any wild chances but the times suggest you are destined for liberation.
Answer the call!
LIBRA [Sep 23 - Oct 23]
If there is any area in your life including certain relationships, where you feel you are being taken for granted, this is your time to set things straight. Feisty Mars is in your sign and progressively opposing radical Uranus, suggesting you are going to surprise your partners or key others with a change of tune. No more playing nice-nice, you are taking the reigns and unleashing a dose of pent up emotion. You are bound to catch a few or more people by surprise this week as you may have very little ability to contain the emotional momentum that is bound to burst. Uranus, the planet of liberation, will station direct in your house of relationships on Monday, Dec. 16 suggesting certain connections of yours will either change or they will end, necessarily so. In the end, this is about creating more equality within your relationships and at times this means you are going to have to take charge of the change! The intention is to make the love you share real versus forced or fake. As your ruler Venus moves retrograde soon in Capricorn, this encourages you to re-new your commitments to those who can stand the test of time, except now with a new set of ground rules, which will benefit you both!
Ahh, equals at last!
SCORPIO [Oct 24 - Nov 21]
It took me writing forecasts for the seven signs before I reached yours to be reminded of the strength in this week’s trend that involves your sign. Thank you for the reminder Scorpio. Saturn, the planet of security and dependability, is in your sign and is making a strong angle of support to Jupiter, the planet of truth. Jupiter connects to your natural way in the world and your intuitive sense of what is right and wrong for you. You do not need anyone to tell you if something is true, you can feel it in your bones and in your Soul. This week you are reminded that even though there is stress in the air and wildly unpredictable as Mars opposes Uranus, you are feeling strong and certain about a key piece of your path and perhaps involving someone in which you share this walk. May this certainty and sense of trust offer the security you need to weather any storm. There is a powerful truth that you are now living, one where you can allow yourself to feel inspired and emotionally supported.
It is time to take another strong step forward!
SAGITTARIUS [Nov 22 - Dec 21]
There is a balancing act this week with respect with how much you push and how much you work to keep the peace. Mars, the planet of action and desire, is in the sign of Libra, the sign that governs relationships and is progressively opposing Uranus, which may require you to become the diplomat or a mediator in a snag between others. This may also play out as well in some key personal relations where you find yourself having the tendency to project or overreact without warning. It will be important to be cunningly honest with yourself and with others as Mercury, the planet of communication is in your sign and offering you a platform to express yourself effortlessly. Also with Venus slowing down to a stall in Capricorn, now would be the time to take responsibility too for where you feel you may have fallen short. If you put in the time and the work to deepen your connections, including staying fully present while digging in to deep issues, an emotional harvest will be your reward.
With your ruler Jupiter in feeling Cancer now making a deeply impactful angle to Saturn in Scorpio, there will prove to be no greater gift this year than the experience of emotional and Soul growth!
CAPRICORN [Dec 22 - Jan 19]
Relationships large and small, in family and in business, come to a head in the next few weeks as anything that you have emotionally been repressing you will find yourself wearing on your emotional sleeve. There may also be moments when you feel the emotions that you had when you were a child where you may have felt alone or a lack of emotional nurturing. You have learned plenty in recent years with Pluto in your sign how imperative it is to learn how to self provide in every way, starting with tending to your inner feeling base. Something this week may remind you in one key area that you are alone, as Mars in your house of the emotional body progressively opposes Uranus. However, Saturn, your ruler, connects expansively to generous Jupiter and you experience a stabilizing feeling of grace that may just bring you to tears.
After a potential upheaval, relationships are bound to strengthen as a result of a timely yet beautiful release!
AQUARIUS [Jan 20 - Feb 19]
Even though life and certain outcomes remain unpredictable and uncertain, a key commitment or a career endeavor is looking far more hopeful as certain Saturn in your house of career is making a highly auspicious angle to Jupiter, the planet of opportunity and prosperity. This aspect in and of itself can keep you stable even as warrior Mars progressively opposes your ruler Uranus in the next few weeks. It is as if no matter what voices attempt to undermine your mission or undercut your vision, you now know and trust that you will not only land on your feet but you will hit the ground running. It does not matter what people are saying, what matters is the vision you are energizing for yourself and the outcome you know you can produce. The blood in your veins will tell you the truth of what is real and possible.
Trust in your brightest vision and it will prove to have more than a solid shot at coming true!
PISCES [Feb 19 - Mar 20]
You have learned in your life that people can often be unpredictable. They can do and say things that in your wildest dreams you would never wish or dare to do. Those rose colored glasses that you were graced with at birth came with a high emotional price attached as there have been hard lessons learned along the way about seeing people clearly. Things are now becoming ever so clear as Mars in Libra progressively opposes Uranus and it may have a way to further shock you into reality, for some of you this will be reflected in who you trust with your money. However Saturn, in fellow water sign Scorpio is in your house of the intuition and is making a dynamic angle of support to Jupiter in feeling Cancer suggesting with your eyes now wide open, it is safe to trust not only in your gut but in the truth of your heart.
When you are in alignment with reality while honoring a well honed intuition, a world of opportunity awaits, in love, in money, and in life!
