ARIES [Mar 21 - Apr 19]

This is a week like no other. While every moment may be unique in its energetic make-up, this week initiates with a bold move, a special thrust of energy and your ruler Mars is the star that makes it all happen. Mars governs action, and this movement and motion initiated by you stems from the desire within your Soul to experience something specific and new in the world. After a long year of digging up the past and feeling all the way through some hard turns, you are ready to kick it into gear and get on with moving forward and free. On Wednesday, Oct. 19, your ruler Mars moves in front of Pluto in Capricorn to initiate a brand new chapter, one that supports the evolutionary intentions of your Soul. This occurs in your house of career and contracts, allowing you to structure your life in such a way that supports what you want moving forward, in all of your committed endeavors. It is about knowing why your life has played out in the way that it has, and doing what you can now to consciously direct and facilitate a plan that energizes desired growth and evolution.

Take a moment or more to make a conscious commitment to what lies before you. It's about going all in or not at all!

TAURUS [Apr 20 - May 21]

If you are looking for some leverage in a situation where you have felt you were spiraling, your time has arrived, with Mars in fellow earth sign Capricorn, moving in front of Pluto, the planet of empowerment, on Wednesday, Oct. 9, after months of traveling in a zone of the unknown. You will finally feel to be clear and on course, in some cases with the wind at your back, and it will be energizing a growing confidence in the trajectory of your future. Your ruler Venus is now in Sagittarius, in your house of the Soul, and she is taking you on her own adventure as she encourages some deeper dives into the truth of things. You are searching for the most honest path you can muster, one that supports your inherent design and make-up. You will also be wanting to know more of what doesn't meet the eye in certain situations so a bit of Sherlock Holmes investigating may be in order. It is about getting to the bottom of it, knowing if you can pull an emotional weed out from its roots, there is a good chance it won't grow back again. Eliminate all that is crowding your inner garden and you will free up more space for the light.

'Make it happen' Mars will help you see it through!

GEMINI [May 22 - Jun 21]

You have reached a significant place on the path, one that is asking much of you. Warrior Mars will finally cross in front of Pluto in Capricorn on Wednesday, Oct. 19, to initiate a new Soul cycle. You will be taking your life more seriously than ever and as your ruler Mercury also opposes Uranus, it offers a true breakthrough from a part of your past that has caused heartbreak and trauma, especially as it relates to your relationships. It may also be that you have reached a place in your life where you feel the connections you are in have reached their own limit and are in need of some serious metamorphoses, so there will be some pressure to keep growing along these lines. The most positive and powerful thing you can do for yourself this week Gemini, is to push those limits, and to not let fear get in the way. There may be some power plays still going on in your world, but you have had your fill. You step into the ring with a new strategy and it proves to leave someone feeling stunned. Change your thinking and you change the whole deal.

Your new chapter you are currently authoring, officially starts now!

CANCER [Jun 22 - Jul 22]

With Mars cruising through your opposite sign, life can tend to swing in extremes, it all depends on what your Soul is energizing. If something is feeling toxic in your life and you are not ridding yourself of its hold, the universe may very well take care of business for you. Mars also conjoins Pluto after months of cleaning and clearing up your past. You have had to circle back in spades this past year, to look deeply into yourself and your choice making. Although it would have brought up a load of history that you would have preferred not to re-visit, the recovery and the search has served you well for something immense is behind you now. Mars' merging with Pluto on Wednesday, Oct. 19 signifies, for some, a day of reckoning in your relationships, but it also energizes a powerful new beginning. We attract what we need in relationships in order to evolve. We also attract others that reflect the very dynamics that we are working on. If you have done your work and you are in a relationship that you feel has run its course, then it is time to move on. For those of you who feel as if you are right where you want and need to be, it will be a time where your commitment strengthens and deepens. For those of you who are single, a fated connection may surface, one that is instrumental in your evolution. It is a dynamic time, one where your good growth is on the line.

Do yourself proud!

LEO [Jul 23 - Aug 22]

As I was writing your forecast Leo, the clouds were threatening rain. Then almost magically, the Sun began piercing through the heavy layer, as if to say, “Have no fear, the Sun is here.” This feels like a good omen to me. All it takes at times to keep the engine of faith humming is a little bit of light on the path. The world has had more than its fair share of storms lately but with Mars in Capricorn, now moving in front of Pluto on Wednesday, Oct.19, you are going to be feeling in better control of how those clouds travel. You may have been feeling to be at the mercy of others for some time, but the light has got a hold on you and you can see a solid way through. Mercury in Libra opposes Uranus as we initiate this forecast week, which can also ignite unexpected opportunities to present yourself or voice your feelings. Shock value appears to be part of the equation as well early on and you lean on what you know to set a record straight. You either suddenly discover something new that changes your approach or you are the one delivering the blow. Be mindful that once you speak there will not only be no holding back, there will also be no erasing what comes spilling forth.

Prepare for the game changer!

VIRGO [Aug 23 - Sep 22]

It has been a week of surprises and there may be a few more where they came from upon entering this forecast week, as your ruler Mercury in Libra opposes Uranus in Aries. Fortunately Mars in fellow earth sign Capricorn will be moving out of a vulnerable position and into a courageously charged new stance, as he takes the lead in front of older brother Pluto, the planet of the Soul, and positions himself well for getting what he wants. This momentous occasion occurs on Wednesday, Oct.19, and it will feel to be a long time coming, as this year has been riddled with set backs. Mars has been doing what he can to not only help you get clear within yourself but to make sure that what you think you want is actually good for you, and something that supports your journey moving forward. Consider this week to symbolize crossing an evolutionary threshold, where you can leave the unwanted at the door, and embark upon the new, free of unnecessary weight. It will be up to you whether you carry the load any longer for there is enough energy to jettison all that you feel is not serving you. With loving Venus now in Sagittarius, in your house of home and the emotional body, it's about nurturing yourself and your inner space so well that others want to climb on board.

Love yourself and be loved!

LIBRA [Sep 23 - Oct 23]

Now that your beautiful ruler Venus has shifted into free spirited Sagittarius, you are going to be determined to find a way to feel good and have fun no matter what is going on in your world. Laughter will be the clear front runner as you quickly come to discover there is no better medicine for the Soul that exists than finding humor in life. With Mars in Capricorn, everything can feel to be so serious, and with Mars moving in front of Pluto on Wednesday, Oct 19, there will be plenty of people in your life that are tugging on you for help. What else is new, eh Libra? Mercury in your sign is also opposing Uranus in Aries right at the get-go, which may take you on a crazy ride early on in your relationships. Heated talks are inevitable, as  you may not be feeling too much like keeping the peace. For some of you, it just may feel as if there is not enough time in the day to take care of all that is calling for your time and attention. However, the most important energy this week rests in one powerful signature where Mars forms a new phase conjunction to Pluto, reflecting a new set of desires that are being set in motion to support the evolutionary journey of your Soul. It may require extra time and a greater commitment but you are in position now to take your life to another level of living.

Do it for you, and everybody wins!

SCORPIO [Oct 24 - Nov 21]

Younger brother Mars has been in the trenches sifting through what is real and what has wounded you. He has traveled far and wide this year, retrograding down and deep through your sign and re-entering Sagittarius to help you search for your truth, as well as your bottom line wants and wishes in this world. If you, yourself, have not been honest and true, it would have exposed what had been hidden, revealing the shadows of old with the intention to start anew with less baggage and weight. You have taken quite a tour of your past in recent months, as you wrestled with old karmic content and worked to resolve what you must so you can powerfully carry on. Mars is now in Capricorn and he joins your ruler Pluto on Wednesday, Oct.19, to formalize a process you have set in motion. It is a time that governs contracts and commitments, ending and beginnings, as well as evolutionary turns. Your choice making at this time could not be taken more seriously, as it may reflect lifetimes of old dynamics coming to an end so a new and better you can begin, a you that has been down some roads and who is ready to emerge and charge ahead.

All that you need is within you now. Know what you want, take a stand and leap!

SAGITTARIUS [Nov 22 - Dec 21]

Life is intense, but Venus has come to warm your core and make light of life where you need it most, as she just entered your sign Sag, and she is determined to find a way to make your life sweeter in any way she can. It is nice to know she is near and recognizing her presence tends to help you get more bang for the cosmic buck, so be sure to give credit where credit is due. Action Mars is in Capricorn and forms a powerful conjunction to Pluto on Wednesday, Oct.19, to firmly establish the direction of your path as you 'can see clearly now the rain is gone'. Mars in this new phase to Pluto will help your Soul get a foothold of all that you have been energizing and will also show you the results of your recent efforts. You may be asked to take on another level of responsibility, in your work and in your life, but with Saturn in your sign, this is nothing new. You have been feeling the pressure to deal with what is real for months, to look at what hurts and to sit in that space until the pain passes. A Soul graduation takes place this week and yet you know you have just moved onto the next challenge, one you welcome.

You are clear about the next steps that must be taken, it's up to you to make your move!

CAPRICORN [Dec 22 - Jan 19]

“Follow me,” says the Capricorn born, as warrior Mars in your sign moves in front of powerful Pluto, the planet of the Soul on Wednesday, Oct.19. You are taking charge Cappy and you are not looking back. A new chapter initiates and you are ready to shoulder the responsibility linked with this road you are about to embark upon. You will feel a welcomed blast of bravery hit your veins and with this surge you will feel ready to tackle just about anything in your midst. It may be too that you may have felt to have reached the limit in a certain arena of your life, and this will mark your new start on the heels of something finishing. Mercury opposes Uranus early on as well which may heat things up on the home front, as emotions run high, and the stress of life looms in places. But this will quickly pass as you unleash all that you have been emotionally storing. As you read this forecast, without taking any time to think about it, ask yourself what you want. What shoots to the surface? These desires are emanating from your Soul and they are telling you what is next, what is needed, and perhaps what is necessary in your journey.

Follow your instinct. It won't lead you astray, and it will light the way!

AQUARIUS [Jan 20 - Feb 19]

You feel the heat of a debate brewing with someone you love, as Mercury in Libra opposes Uranus in Aries, suggesting there is no telling how it will go or where it will land. Interesting timing with the last of three debates in the U.S. political arena occurring on Wednesday, Oct. 19. This also happens the day when warrior Mars moves in front of powerful Pluto, to add some spice and steam to the mix. There will not be a lack of passion and fire in your world or in the world at large, that is one thing you can be sure of. Mars has been working to culminate an ongoing theme in your life and we have reached a place where you can finally feel as if you are finished and through. A new beginning awaits, one that is asking for your total commitment. Much of the work you will be doing may be going on backstage or behind the scenes but any pure intended ounce of effort you make now will not go unnoticed by the powers that be. Put your all into this turn of events and the energy there to back your efforts will spur you on for more.

This next phase is up to you!

PISCES [Feb 19 - Mar 20]

Life may be feeling unpredictable at best where money matters are concerned, as Uranus in your house of earnings keeps life uncertain, especially now with Mercury in your house of those who have the power to help you, forming an opposition to Uranus. This may energize a surprise on that front, which forces you to change directions, also reminding you to never put all of your eggs in one basket. However, Mars is finally moving in front of Pluto on Wednesday, Oct. 19, in your house of breakthroughs, so you will have all the energy and confidence you need to pivot and pursue a more profitable path. This is also an energy that allows you to make your individual mark on the world and to show others how your unique vibe sets you apart from the rest. Loving Venus, now in Sagittarius, is energizing profitable outcomes in your career arena and you will be received beautifully. With Venus in this sector, you may also find that others are showing up to support your efforts, helping you feel less on your own. Even if initially things go a bit haywire, they will find a way back into balance.

Trust in divine timing, when it feels right, you will know!
