ARIES [Mar 21 - Apr 19]

The deeper your ruler Mars travels into the sign of penetrating Scorpio, the more intense life gets on a feeling scale of one to ten. It can reflect final endings in some cases, but it can also uproot a latent potential for desirable metamorphoses. You cannot be afraid to ‘go there’ this week. It is true that some things need time to settle, but at some point the energy festers and if it is not dealt with, it can get worse and in some cases become unsolvable. There is a situation that requires you to have the impetus to make the next move, to take the lead in what feels like a futile situation. Just in time, your ruler Mars enters fellow fire sign Sagittarius on Friday, Jan.26, to give you the instinct and intuitive ability to know how to navigate some touchy terrain. In fact, it gives you a wild edge that may even have you calling the shots in the end. This trend is setting up a Total Full Moon Eclipse, giving this lunar tide an extra hit of juice, occurring in fellow fire sign Leo on Wednesday, Jan 31, so might as well start fanning those flames in order to get that fire good and hot.

Where there has been a feeling of oppression, a positive kick gets you back in the game as a result of steps taken, and this week has you far more encouraged about where things are headed!

TAURUS [Apr 20 - May 21]

This year started with an undeniable feeling of intensity, one that is forcing you to turn in and travel all the way down into the deep. With a pair of eclipses coming, life will surely not let up, but one thing will happen, your attachment to things is going to change. Your ruler Venus is in objective Aquarius up at the top of your chart and traveling with the Sun, which is shining a new light of perspective on your path. You may also feel to be re-working through old traumas and painful roads of the past, and a little distance is allowing you to look at something without feeling as if the bulldozer won. A Full Moon Eclipse in Leo is on its way on Wednesday, Jan. 31, in your house of home and the emotional body, which can filet those tender feeling places and energize dramas where family is concerned. It will help when Mars exits your opposite sign of Scorpio on Friday, Jan. 26, offering further insights that will save you from the wreckage for up until now, you were wanting nothing more than to be done with it all. Massive change is possible for the two weeks that follow but by the New Moon Eclipse on Feb. 15, a healing turn is possible.

For now, stay in your lane and trust that the truth will be enough to live in peace!

GEMINI [May 22 - Jun 21]

If you’ve got something to say, you better make sure it comes out in a way that won’t lead to regret. Your ruler is in Capricorn and conjuncts Pluto as we enter this forecast week, suggesting if grudges are carried and emotion is stuffed, it may feel like a bomb has just left your lips and landed at the feet of someone you deeply resent. You know full well that this is no way to resolve a thing and it surely won’t make things easier for you in the long run. You have been holding on to something, and there is a mountain of content you wish to get off your chest but it is going to take inwardly working through the loaded words until they leave you. Warrior Mars enters your opposite sign on Friday, Jan. 26, having you feeling highly charged and ready for battle with whoever crosses you so prepare to feel the surge and be mindful how to respond. Mercury also moves into a square to Uranus this weekend, so do watch those triggers and remember that the first one who speaks loses. Fortunately, with the Sun and Venus in fellow air sign Aquarius, you will have the outlets you need to help you expand your view and let it all go and you find relief in releasing some of the build up of bitterness.

The water laden emotional rain clouds will empty and part in February. Understand why you find yourself here and moving on will come surprisingly easy!

CANCER [Jun 22 - Jul 22]

It feels like yesterday we were observing the rare solar eclipse moment in the west and yet in a blink, here it is six months later. It will be important now to reflect upon what kind of changes have occurred in the past six months have. A new pair of eclipses await, the first of which is a Total Lunar Eclipse in Leo on Wednesday, Jan. 31, destined to open your heart again.

The past is circling back around, and how you deal with what is up in your life will be critical for how things go moving forward. Be honest, be humble, and be ready to build a bridge on the heels of emotional shifts you have made within yourself. The two weeks that follow will be instrumental and will reveal signs in how the next six months play out. A New Moon Eclipse in Aquarius on Feb. 15, holds promise for some changes you didn’t expect in this lifetime.

You discover that someone at the top is on your side, which will lead to a favorable return of your own feeling of power, in addition to the feeling of some supremely satisfying sweet justice!

LEO [Jul 23 - Aug 22]

Life without a little drama is downright dull. C’mon Leo you know this is true for you are first in line to create your own fair share of theater in order to feel more alive. Regardless, drama follows any Soul who is ‘going places’, for once you put yourself out there, the more you subject yourself to targeted criticism and attack. It comes with the turf. Power play Pluto and Mercury, the planet of communication, merge at the initiation of this week’s forecast to force you into a difficult dialogue with someone in order to try and get to the bottom of an issue or problem. However, a positive fire burns where misinterpretations lie as action Mars enters fellow fire sign Sagittarius on Friday, Jan. 26, and could not be better positioned for you to experience positive progress to clear some high hurdles involving matters of the heart are concerned. Negative energy is a forever thorn in the side, and you can finally stop the bleeding in a situation where it felt as if there was no way through.

All you need to do is express your desire to repair the pieces of your connection with some emotional gold and they will find a way to shine once again!

VIRGO [Aug 23 - Sep 22]

What has gotten into you Virgo? You have never been taken so seriously. Your ruler Mercury in Capricorn has become one with powerful Pluto and because of this, you are feeling tall within yourself and yet also deep within the groove of you. You are done feeling unworthy or not good enough and you are not about to put up with anybody’s bull these days. Good for you, your spirit is impressive. However, Mars enters Sagittarius on Friday, Jan. 26, in your house of the emotional body, and may have you back to feeling a wee bit vulnerable this weekend but is is essential to understand how to make these tides of tender emotion work in your favor versus making you freeze. The Soul can only evolve via the emotional body, so this is your invitation to enter the gates and go the distance, to dig in and grow up and out of any debilitating dynamic that has held you back. You feel your way through the truth of your reality and it will make you stronger simply by not being afraid to feel every pebble and rock on your way down that river.

Make a mental note that by Friday, Feb. 2, you will be breathing easy again. A worry or a fear that you haven’t been able to shake will soon be history!

LIBRA [Sep 23 - Oct 23]

The shiny Sun and your ruler loving Venus are companions in the sky in fellow air sign Aquarius, allowing you to replenish some of your inner resources to improve your feeling of vitality after a relatively rough recent run on overdrive. What will soon help is Pluto releasing his grip on Mercury in Capricorn, as he enters Aquarius as well on Wednesday, Jan. 31, the same day as a Total Lunar Eclipse in Leo, in your house of breakthroughs. This bodes well for those of you with kids who have passions that they are pursuing or with those of you who have a creative endeavors that you are birthing yourself. The two week eclipse window that follows may feel to be highly emotionally caffeinated and it culminates with a extra shot where that came from with the New Moon Solar Eclipse on Thursday, Feb.15, in Aquarius as well. Many roads are leading you to this energetic moment. Action Mars enters Sagittarius on Thursday, Jan.26, which helps you know just what to say to get you in the door. Life may still be a push and a haul in places with Saturn and Pluto so prominently positioned to increase the feeling of burdens and responsibilities but a big break awaits. Let the energy shift generate the best possible lift.

A little good news goes a good long way!

SCORPIO [Oct 24 - Nov 21]

The immensity of the energy is palpable. There is no time for cruising these days, especially now with Mercury merged with your ruler Pluto. Key events feel timely and karmic and it creates an added pressure to make the right decisions today, choices you know will make or break how your path plays out in the long run. You may be feeling powerless in some respects but the current energy may also be energizing a need to assert your control over how things go. Warrior Mars spends his final days in your sign before entering truth seeking Sagittarius on Friday, Jan.26, and a Total Lunar Eclipse in Leo lights up the top of your chart on Wednesday, Jan.31, which may very well have you craving success and the spot light. Because of the nature of eclipses, you will need to re-visit unresolved emotional content for eclipses never let anything slide. Relationship planet Venus is sitting on the South Node, the symbol that connects to your past, in your house of home and the emotional body, so anything that has not been adequately emotionally dealt with will be surfacing again. There is a solution, even if right now there may not appear to be. Eclipses open doors we wish to remain closed but they can also reveal a reality that we never thought possible.

Keep your heart open and the best of this potential scenario can show you the way in!

SAGITTARIUS [Nov 22 - Dec 21]

It is clear that the two and a half year stint of Saturn transiting through your sign prepared you well to endure the first month of 2018. There has been plenty of intensity in the ethers and more than your fair share of stuff for your Soul to shoulder but you are a seasoned soldier now Sag. Warrior Mars is also entering your sign on Friday, Jan. 26, which can help you or hurt you depending on how you work with the mother lode of energy at your disposal. Life is not simmering down for a moment. A Total Lunar Eclipse in fellow fire sign Leo on Wednesday, Jan. 31, in your house of truth is going to open up fields of gold that you didn’t see coming. Conversations and negotiations with the right people can have you carving out some alternative paths for yourself or the ones you love.

Pluto and Mercury are joined in your house of dreams in the sign of reality hit Capricorn and it may feel as if something has come to an end. This is due to either an idea that you had or else someone has been emotionally impenetrable and any attempt to really reach them feels like you are talking to a brick wall, with zero bend. However, on Friday, Jan. 26, Mars enters optimistic Sagittarius, a sign who always finds the silver lining to any situation.

PISCES [Feb 19 - Mar 20]

With Mars on a mission this month and working diligently to expose the depths of every vulnerable detail of your life, it has been no easy ride. However, you have had the energetic backing to help you inwardly integrate why all of this is occurring in this way, to give you the determination you need to pull through and into more empowering lands. Action Mars exits fellow water sign Scorpio on Friday, Jan.26, and enters free spirited Sagittarius suggesting whatever you have been enduring, you are sure to come out on top.
