ARIES [Mar 21 - Apr 19]

With your ruler Mars in fellow fire sign Sagittarius, it will allow you to naturally attract more of what you want and less of what you don't, especially now that Mars has crossed Saturn and moved beyond a square to the Nodes, those symbols that connect to your past and your future. You have just moved beyond an irritant or a block, and now the way forward can become crystal clear. A New Moon Eclipse in Virgo, in your house of repairs, on Thursday, Sept. 1, is also loaded with potential to clean up and improve upon anything that feels broken. While my favorite trend on the horizon for you Aries comes in two weeks time when Mars trines Uranus in your sign, know that it won't be what it needs to be unless you can roll up your sleeves and get to work on something with a fine tooth comb. Not your forte I realize, but going in and addressing the details will earn you a cosmic surprise in the end.

So get in the spirit of improving upon whatever you can, and before long your life may just end up looking and feeling brand new!

TAURUS [Apr 20 - May 21]

A New Moon Solar Eclipse in fellow earth sign Virgo on Thursday, Sept. 1, bodes well for you Taurus, as all this earth energy harmonizes beautifully with your own, giving you the added planetary push that you need to catapult you into productive and heart pleasing territory. An eclipse of any kind is fire packed with energy and it can change the course of your travels unexpectedly so be open and prepared for a re-direction, one that you did not see but will soon discover is a far more suitable plan. Your ruler Venus also just shifted into Libra, allowing you to partner with someone in a work project that allows a significant Soul pursuit to be set in motion. Mercury stationed retrograde on Tuesday, Aug. 30, which will have you re-thinking your strategy as you discover more about what feels like a fit and what doesn't. This is no time to force it but a time to wait and see.

If you play your cards right, you'll have just what you want and it will happen right and when its ready!

GEMINI [May 22 - Jun 21]

Life can be an unpredictable ride. You can throw your whole heart all the way into something and trust that all will come to be, and then before you know it, a derailment occurs and you are forced to re-group within yourself and wait for a more favorable turn of the tides. A New Moon Eclipse in Virgo on Thursday, Sept. 1, in your house of the emotional body, may crack you open in the coming days, throwing you back upon yourself for strength and direction, but with Jupiter still traveling through those same energetic lands, your intuition will be an invaluable compass. Also, loving Venus just entered fellow air sign Libra which will go far to help you attract and harmonize with something or someone you love. At times, it takes reaching an absolute state of vulnerability before you are in a natural state of receptivity to attract what you actually need. Your ruler Mercury, the planet of communication, stationed retrograde on Tuesday, Aug. 30, stopping you in your tracks to re-think your way forward. You will be feeling through all that you think about and thinking through all that you feel in order to know from the inside out the best way forward.

Know that with a little patience, perfect timing will invite your greatest delight!

CANCER [Jun 22 - Jul 22]

You may be wondering if there will ever be a moment when you can come up for air, being that it is eclipse season and a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Virgo on Thursday, Sept. 1, is having you feeling pulled in multiple directions. Just when you get working on one thing, someone else is calling for your attention. You are juggling many emotional balls, not to mention all the usual daily tasks that requires your time and attention. However, this is a window for unthinkable progress, even with Mercury stationing retrograde on Tuesday, Aug. 30, the retrograde can be a way of saving precious energy and time when you can uncover missed information that ultimately saves you big in the end. Mercury retrogrades back to re-conjoin generous Jupiter leading into the weekend and all of a sudden everything opens up and the way becomes clear. All that you were working so hard to understand will become known in a flash. Timing is everything Cancer and this week you clear a hurdle of old that leaves something outworn and unwanted in the dust.

Be sure to remember to nurture your most basic, simple needs, and this will give you the endurance you need to cover all the ground that you possibly can; in work, in love, and in play!

LEO [Jul 23 - Aug 22]

We are all in a state of becoming, we are evolving beings. There is not a Soul that enjoys feeling static, and when we continue making choices that are not getting us anywhere, the universe has a way of creating an energetic blast to get us moving again, ready or not. We all prefer to be in charge of the change and yet when there is any amount of resistance, the universe will tend to make that change for us. A New Moon Eclipse in Virgo, in your house of what you value, is rocking the boat and showing you what it is that your life is worth living for. You find it becomes the simplest of things this week, and nothing that involves fame or money. At times it takes losing something before you really get a taste of its absence. The void will speak to you about all that is missing this week, and with Mercury also now retrograde in Virgo in this same sector, you will be reminded of all that once held so much meaning but no longer holds a candle to what has come to replace it.

Loving Venus is now in Libra, in your house of communication, giving you an artful way with words if you are wanting to work you way back into a more favorable position. Think of what they need first and you'll be half way in!

VIRGO [Aug 23 - Sep 22]

If you could go back in time and change one slip up or royal blunder, what would it be? I realize that we cannot alter the past, but we can right a wrong, we can clean up our act, we can see the light and rise to a better occasion. This all starts with forgiving yourself and remembering that no one is perfect. Your ruler Mercury just shifted retrograde right before exiting your sign, occurring two days before a New Moon Eclipse in Virgo on Thursday, Sept.1, which may translate into a wake up call. The Soul shake-up does not have to equal agony, it can be a liberating dance. Also loving Venus just entered Libra, helping you better reel in what you want in the next few weeks. I would suggest you take it all in for now, don't rush it or push it. What you think you want may not be what you actually need. It is a roll with the changes, tide turning time and because the New Moon Solar Eclipse is in your sign, those changes are bound to land in your lap. Be open to what they are offering your Soul, as this lunar boom is within range of forming a supportive angle to Pluto, the planet of metamorphoses.

Jupiter also spends his final two weeks in Virgo and he never leaves without making his presence known. Allow yourself to expand during these final days while he prepares to exit your sign, and his final offering will prove to be the gift that you never forget!

LIBRA [Sep 23 - Oct 23]

Love finds a way in, as your ruler Venus just entered your sign Libra. You are certain to a feel a lift where there has been a lag, as Venus wants nothing more than to help you feel in balance with yourself and with others. It may also be that you experience relief in monetary ways as she energizes an ease to a strain whenever and wherever she can. This week will be intense in spots with a New Moon Eclipse in Virgo on Thursday, Sept. 1, reminding you of all that is lacking in your life. It may also remind you of what still hurts, as the emotions can be running high. The New Moon can equal an event that changes the course of your life or else has some sort of dramatic impact on your inner feeling experience. I am reminded of a client who could not let go of an old love, until in her surprise she found out that he himself had already moved on. Knowing there was no way back was exactly what she needed to finally move on herself. Life may surprise you this week, but if it does, it will be the catalyst you need to start brand new.

Much will positively shift in two week's time. Clear what you can for now, so there is ample room for the bounty to enter!

SCORPIO [Oct 24 - Nov 21]

You naturally live on the edge Scorpio, so this New Moon Solar Eclipse in Virgo on Thursday, Sept. 1, is not going to throw you for a loop. Nothing really surprises you anymore and although you are a fixed sign, you have endured enough in your life to know how to ride these turbulent tides. In fact, some of you would not know what to do with a life of peaceful seas, you came here to grow and to push the proverbial limits. You'll be able to do that this week with significant support as your ruler Pluto aligns with strength to this eclipse, suggesting some extra focus and a pure intended push could have you landing right where your Souls wants to be. Mercury just reversed its direction in Virgo in your house of change, so there will be some necessary leg work to get you back on track again. Take the time you need in order to get things right, so you can continue forward with a clear conscious. Venus is now traveling in Libra, in your house of healing and dreams, helping you get in touch with an ideal way forward for all.

Tune in to an optimal resolution and in time it may very well find a way to be!

SAGITTARIUS [Nov 22 - Dec 21]

We all need a jump start to get our Soul engine moving now and again, and this week a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Virgo, in your house of career, earns you a fuel injected hit to direct your focus. Mercury is also now retrograde up in this sector of your sky so it may have you feeling pulled in a new direction. Early on, you could be putting out your share of fires but as Mars in your sign continues to pull away from Saturn and approaches an electric trine to Uranus mid month, you will find that all of your sincere efforts were not wasted. You may very well be feeling as if you recently cleared a final speed bump but the eclipse will no doubt do its best to throw a few more unexpected surprises on your path. These tests are ultimately about finding out just how much something is worth to you. There is a slow build going on now for you Sag but in two weeks time, it will turn into an electrically favorable landslide.

The universal kick backs will be kind to you if you are honest, determined and true!

CAPRICORN [Dec 22 - Jan 19]

You may have felt a power surge of more energy than your Soul knew what to do with when Mars recently crossed your ruler Saturn. It spoke truths that could not be denied and put your desires and wants right in your face, like dangling a juicy carrot in front of your eyes. But now that Mars is marching on, you will be getting your bearings back again, however not before the New Moon Eclipse in fellow earth sign Virgo on Thursday, Sept.1. This may very well feel like a Soul surge, fortunately with a grounding pad in place. Mercury also just kicked it into reverse in Virgo which may have you re-writing your visions for your future and adding some significant details. Venus entered Libra in your house of career to increase your chances for success along those lines and to get you in touch with others who can support your efforts, others who feel like a good match.

All in all, Pluto, the planet of empowerment, in your sign, is strategically aligned with this solar eclipse in your house of new beginnings, and even though Mercury is retrograde, you will find the energy this week helps you finally get something well off the ground!

AQUARIUS [Jan 20 - Feb 19]

While life this week may feel to be 'touch and go' with a New Moon Eclipse in Virgo, in your house of the Soul, action Mars is progressively forming a positively life changing trine to your ruler Uranus which will become exact mid September. We work within orbs of influence in astrology, so the aspect does not need to be exact in order for you to benefit from the energy. You can tap in to the favor of this growing trend in the next week. The message for the eclipse is to become ever more conscious of your right work in the world, and how you can share your natural design to benefit others. Loving Venus just entered fellow air sign Libra, giving you a reprieve in some respects and her influence will inspire you to expand your reach, in some cases with an international audience. Mercury, the planet of communication just shifted retrograde, so there may be some changes in terms of how your pursue your Soul's intended destiny.

Allow the next few weeks to reveal those missing meaningful links so by mid month, you will be all set and ready to fly!

PISCES [Feb 19 - Mar 20]

Once you see something clearly, there is no turning back, and yet why would you want to? A New Moon Eclipse in Virgo in your house of relationships on Thursday, Sept.1, will have a way of parting the veil of illusion involving key connections, as the eclipse conjuncts the North Node, the symbol for your destiny, while your ruler Neptune hovers over the South Node, the symbol for your past. This suggests that you may also experience that Ground Hog Day feeling, and yet this time knowing you need to make a new choice under these same repeating themes if you ever hope for a different outcome. It can be too that it is your own inner psychology and emotional reality that is feeding this 'been here before feeling' and causing this experience to repeat. Mercury is now retro also in Virgo, giving you an opportunity to have new conversations surrounding old dynamics and there is nothing like an eclipse to jettison the junk. With sweet Venus shifting into Libra, in your house of the Soul, you are going to be pulling in those fated encounters yet this time your radar will help you read between the lines.

Be ready to stand your ground, and to hold that line without being tempted to cross it. It time to get it right once and for all!
