WINTER IS COMING

Winter is a time when the earth is in hibernation. The chi rests. Plants rest, trees rest and of course we rest and try to take it easy. The weather gets colder and snow blankets the earth and all looks peaceful and beautiful from the inside of our home. It’s a lovely time of the year, especially if you can stay inside!

We may have time to read that book that has been sitting on the shelf for a few months because we were so busy with our autumn yard clean up, etc., and never got around to doing what we wanted to do. It’s a time to sit home and watch TV or have fun with the family. Adult education classes are over until February, so this is a time to decorate the house, enjoy your family, read, play board games, write holiday shopping lists, battle the crowds in the stores for holiday shopping and generally enjoying the indoors.

As winter progresses, it’s a time to make sure your car and tires are good working condition. You want to be safe in the snow and ice filled streets. Be sure to get that oil change to make sure the engine runs smoothly too.

Here are a few ways to bring in positive energy into your yard and home for the holidays.

WINTER TIPS:

Holiday lights: Nothing brings guests better than Christmas light displays during the holidays. Put lights on timers so that you don’t have to be home to have your lights come on. This also lets others think you are home when you may be off holiday shopping or visiting family, friends or neighbors.

If you are a baker, bake all the great cookies and breads you usually do for the holidays. Nothing invites family, friends and neighbors in general to come into your home more than freshly baked items with those wonderful aromas filling your home and seeping through your doors or windows. Do you need to bake so many cookies? How many can we eat? After the holidays, I get to throw a good deal of them out to my squirrels which live on my property and they thank me.  Another choice, of course, is to freeze what you can.

Have all of your shopping and wrapping done early. You can buy presents all year long and wait until after Thanksgiving for larger items or items that you want to make sure you can return.

Decorate the house at different times. You can put up the tree one night and then put up window and yard decorations over the next few days. Be sure the children are home, so that they can assist in making your home look beautiful for the holidays. Even though I’m sure they’ll complain at having to do something as lame as put up Christmas or holiday decorations, it will be good to show the children that the holidays are for families and families work together.

Write holiday cards when you have a few spare minutes throughout the fall. Many people put names and addresses on stick-on labels.  I have learned that they are very impersonal and it’s just like you are saying that you wanted to get that chore out of the way as quickly as possible and had no regard for the person it was being sent to. I hand write all my envelopes and messages inside each card rather than writing a longer typed Christmas-gram. It’s more personal and it’s very rare, so your card will stand out. I have received many comments on my original notes and how refreshing they were.

When getting ready to have a holiday party at your home, here are some tips: clean the house one day, set up the tables and cooking/serving dishes and glasses you will need another day (pop them in the dishwasher if they haven’t been used since the last big holiday), do the food shopping and preparing what you can ahead of time and on the day of the party, you can relax, get ready in a stress free environment and have fun! Clean up can be done tomorrow or after your guests have gone. Some people actually pitch in and clean up as they go. If this is all right with you, by all means, accept the help. You’ve worked so hard!

Or throw a load of dishes and glasses in the dishwasher, go to bed and rest so you can face the mess ahead of you in the light of day with a strong cup of coffee or tea in your hand!

Do simple things to help your party run smoother. Prepare the coffee maker and supplies ahead of time so that when it is time for your guests to have coffee or tea, all you have to do is show them where it is.

Put the milk pitcher in the refrigerator filled with cold water so it will be kept colder for a longer period of time after serving.

Make sure your table linens are clean. Check them at least a week before your party and clean what needs to be washed or sent to the dry cleaners.

Have holiday music playing in the background, but be sure it is relaxing music so that all conversations can be heard easily.

If this is a pot luck dinner, prepare a menu so you can tell everyone what they could bring to your home. If it’s not a pot luck dinner but others ask what they may bring, you can always suggest gourmet dips, crackers, breads, wine, sparkling apple cider, eggnog, a bottle of liquor or a dessert of their choice. Tell them how many guests you are expecting.

You do not need to put out every holiday decoration you have. As the children leave the nest, you can put up a modest yet tasteful display of decorations. The holidays are for us to relax and enjoy the season, not stress over all the decorations, where to move the furniture until after the holidays and rush out to get the biggest live Christmas tree you can find.

There are so many kinds of pre-lit artificial trees that are life-like and stunning, why should we waste another natural resource if we don’t have to? An artificial tree can be purchased after the holidays for very reasonable prices and they look good for at least ten years if cared for properly.

WINTER QUICK TIPS: 

Be sure the furnace is in perfect operating condition so your heating bills will be reasonable and your family will be safe.

If you have a fireplace, be sure to have enough wood stored in a dry space so it can be used whenever you need a fire. Be sure the fireplace has been cleaned, if needed. Every other year would be a good starting point to have it cleaned out or checked.

Put light timers on in several rooms so that they come on automatically when you are not home. The darkness of night comes quickly in the winter, so for safety, make sure it looks as if someone is home.

Place your heat on a timer too so that you are not wasting precious fuel when it is not needed. There are many thermostats with timers built in and if you don’t have one, they are not outrageously priced.

Are all the window and door seals tight so that you don’t lose precious heating in the winter?

Is your roof in need of repair? It would be worse if your roof was in need of repair and you found out while ice was melting and found its way through your attic and into one of your room’s ceilings.

Keep an extra entrance way runner handy so that excess mud, water or snow can be wiped off easily from shoes or boots before coming into your home.

If it works for you, do shopping in bulk so that you have fewer trips to the store in bad weather and have plenty of items on hand in case of an unexpected snow storm.

This is a great time to clean out attics and basements during the bad weather. Until the weather breaks, you might as well be productive.

Clean out closets and/or draws one a day until you are finished.

Go through your clothes, towels, bed linens and tablecloths and see which ones you no longer need, like or use.  You can put them in a big bag or box for a springtime garage sale or you can simply donate them to your church or temple.

Don’t forget to bring unneeded blankets and towels to local shelters so the animals will be warm.

Clean out your makeup drawer! If you haven’t used something in a year, toss it or give it to someone who may want or need it, if it is still good. Once mascara is opened, it can only be used for three months until bacteria forms inside the tube. If creams smell bad, toss them. There is a certain shelf life on cosmetics, so check them carefully. Otherwise, you are storing items that are unusable or bad.

When putting away holiday decorations, do one area of your home at a time. Pack things carefully so you won’t find them broken next year. Put tree decorations together, the manger and figurines in another box and all of your window and room decorations in another. Label each box with a big black magic marker or Sharpie pen. Rubbermaid makes lovely large containers which seal out moisture, so perhaps investing in a few of them will help make the storing of your decorations easier. You can color code the boxes for certain items.

Read; there is no time like winter to curl up in front of a fireplace or in a cozy chair and read. Catch up on recorded shows or binge on series you’ve always wanted to see.

Spend more time with family and friends. Have a few cocktail parties or get-togethers with finger foods. I was recently introduced to a fun game called “Apples to Apples.” I don’t like games but my sister-in-law said, “You don’t have to know anything or do anything that is hard,” so I gave it a try. We played for hours and had fun – both with the kids and adults. It also got us talking a lot more to each other and laughing way too much!

Catch up on sewing, crocheting or knitting projects while watching TV or listening to the radio or CD.  My planned hobby for this winter is quilting!  That should take up a lot of time.

Sell your old treasures or precious junk on eBay. There is nothing like the winter months to get you looking through your stuff to what you don’t need any longer. It’s easy to sell on eBay if you have never done so before. Just read through the site and you will see how easy it truly is. If I can do it, so can you.

These are some of the suggestions I have for the winter season.  Good luck and enjoy the snow!

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all.  I hope you are lucky enough to enjoy the holidays with loved ones and good friends.

ARIES – March 20 – April 19

Spending money for the holidays is just the beginning.  You will have fun, enjoy holiday celebrations and won’t think twice about spending more than planned on a gift for a loved one.  Your generosity of spirit is magnetic and extends to your friends who will expect an extra special gift.  You may over spend on those you love.  Career opportunities are plentiful and you are probably considering changing jobs or parts of your job that will bring you more attention, more income or where you will use your intellect.  Things are getting boring. Your attention is not on work at this time, but in planning all the wonderful shopping, parties, travel and fun you hope to have during this month.  Your practical side comes into play where you realize you need more rest and must limit your help to others who are always taking advantage of your kind nature.  All in all, you are on the go, having fun, and connecting with friends and family who love your company.

TAURUS – April 20 – May 20

Holiday travel seems important; however, make sure your travel plans are solid before venturing to your holiday destinations.  Family conflicts may arise and seem unimportant to you, but the issues are important to others.  Be tactful with your partner since much energy seems to want to make you “right” or in control of every situation.  If you keep a cool head and compromise where appropriate, things should run quite smoothly. Don’t get into a battle of wits with your family and friends since this is the season of forgiveness and peace of mind, body and spirit.  Change is good even though you may not feel it at the present time.  If you find yourself in unexpected circumstances, just know that you are being guided on a different path.  You may not wish to travel on this path; however, it would be in your best interest to at least look at the wonderful changes around you and the opportunities it will bring for future happiness, prosperity and good health.

GEMINI – May 21 – June 20
Home life tends to get somewhat stressful as you try to plan the perfect holiday party.  Balance issues between your work load in your career and the responsibilities of your family weigh you down.  Why can’t you delegate?  Is it up to you to handle everything?  Miscommunication is prevalent this month so be clear about your intent or what you are asking others to do for you.  Repeat things so that you are on the same page as well.  Are you working too much so that you are not avail Compromise is needed to avoid arguments with your partner or loved ones since you just don’t have much time to think things through properly and make an informed decision?  You also get annoyed when people question where your time is spent and that you may be able to organize your life better.  You do more than most of the other signs and you would like to be acknowledged for that, but just be happy that you are able to run your life the way you want to or else, you just pick up and find happiness elsewhere. 

CANCER – June 20 – July 21
Love life and family seems to bring you much happiness and joy, even though you are handling too much of the responsibility.  New beginnings in the home, perhaps redecorating or some much needed repair projects, help you focus on your goals for the future.  You may be starting over or feel as if you need the changes that are being thrust upon you.  Make buying presents a special family occasion.  Even though you may feel that change is unsettling, it will be a positive experience, so go with the flow.  Differences of traditions and philosophies of life will be tested and you may be persuaded to look at things from different perspectives.  Even though you may want to stay home this holiday season, be a bit flexible if your partner wants to travel to visit family.  Staying home means you have to cook and entertain; however, it also makes you feel comfortable to be in your own home to do whatever you want to.  Using your intellect to make decisions rather than emotional ones will help you choose the better option. 

LEO – July 22 – August 22

It is important for you to entertain your family and friends, but be mindful of your health.  Take enough time for yourself and let others give you a hand in the kitchen or with the preparations.  This is a good time to rejuvenate, relax and do whatever you feel is important for yourself and your happiness.  It is a time to help others get more organized and as usual, you help others with their challenges and issues and are always going the extra mile.  This is also a time where you will take on the responsibility of a family issue.  Do the best you can to help those family members compromise; however, don’t beat yourself up if it does not go the way you feel it should.  You have done your best and sometimes things just have to work themselves out.    Arguing is probable if you let yourself get caught up in the politics of an issue.  Be aware of the explosive energy surrounding you and do your best to diffuse all negative situations.

VIRGO – August 23 – September 22

Holidays are always stressful, so if you are more relaxed and plan well in advance, your holidays will run quite smoothly.  Getting your list and checking it twice is a great way for a Virgo to start their holiday shopping.  Know what you want to spend and then comparison shop so you get the best price for the item, as if you wouldn’t do that anyway! Try not to take life so seriously now as it is supposed to be fun.  If there are any issues that you do not agree with, let them go for now and deal with them after the holidays.  Situations with personal and business partnerships may be confusing and upsetting at times, so be prepared to stand your ground and give your frank opinion in a tactful manner.  Career may be changing in many ways and it would be helpful for you to know in which direction you would like to proceed.  Do you want your own home-based business?  If so, go for it now as the energy around you is positive and open to so many wonderful possibilities to accomplish your future goals and dreams. 

LIBRA – September 23 – October 22

Spending money for beautiful things is a constant in your life; however, it may be time to ask your partner if he or she agrees with your gift choices.  Ask for his or her opinions of gifts for the family and your closest friends.  Consulting a partner on financial choices or where you spend the family riches will allow you to spend more freely.  Much good energy is around you so plan what steps you would like to take to accomplish some dreams and goals.  Your personality shifts to being more self-confident with less issues regarding insecurities and anxieties.  This is the time for you to accomplish what needs to be done.  Career, travel and spiritual pursuits all seem to become important at the same time so be prepared to be scattered and yet, you will be having the time of your life exploring all the possibilities around you.

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

Be prepared to double check your travel plans as it seems as if there is a glitch that hinders you.   This does not mean that you should not travel, but it seems to be a time where extra planning and alternative plans will keep everyone calm and in control of their holidays!  Running around at the last minute to get your shopping done can be an exhausting task, so use the web to order some on line gifts, if you feel that’s appropriate.  You just need some down time, relaxation time, and family time for your own enjoyment and wellbeing.  You would like to plan things in advance and that’s a wonderful idea, but be flexible enough to know that all plans do not turn out exactly as we hope.  Many times, the things that change can be more fun than our original plans.  Have a wonderful time.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Get up and go to holiday parties, friends’ get-togethers or that holiday getaway with a loved one even though he or she may not want to leave home.  Try to be a little more sensitive with a loved one’s feelings as it seems you may be somewhat tactless or thoughtless to his or her needs.  This may be because you are so caught up in the whirlwind around you, or the holiday season, that you don’t have time for petty nonsense.  You may be on different wavelengths so try to find common ground.  Home life may be a bit too hectic for your taste and you may try to go out or not deal with specific issues.  They will not go away, so deal with them directly.  A good outcome will result from any effort you put into making positive changes in work, formal education, long distance travel and finances, so start thinking about which areas of life you would like to change and start making a few small changes throughout the season. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

New friends and associations help propel your career through this holiday season.  Networking becomes effortless as you meet many more people through new clubs, memberships and organizations.  Be careful not to let your personal and business lives conflict with each other as it won’t be worth the time and trouble.  Deal with each area of life separately and complete any unfinished projects or endeavors.  Being organized for the upcoming year will help you get a jump on your goals.  Lists will help you with this organization and will help you focus on your priority issues.  Go out and have some fun.  You can’t be all business or too serious now since this is the time to be happy and jolly!  Accept holiday party invitations and do some of the entertaining yourself.  You will feel very relaxed and others will appreciate your thoughtfulness.

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 17

Your creative and artistic abilities are amplified during this festive season so don’t be afraid to show off your abilities to your family and friends.  Spirituality is more important as you unfold the meaning of your traditional beliefs.  This is a good time to think about what you want to do in the future, perhaps in a creative field or perhaps to take creative classes you never had the time to take in the past.  What a wonderful time for you to look into new cultures and traditions. You may wish to kick back and unwind during the holidays and not have the traditional holiday meals or parties with your family.  You may wish to keep a day for yourself where you could organize your home, entertain other family members or friends or just relax and watch the blinking lights on the Christmas tree or other holiday decorations.  Energy abounds and you wish to accomplish so much.  You can do anything you need to do at this time, but limit yourself to a few tasks per day so you can re-energize and continue on the fast track that you have been living on for the last year.

PISCES – February 19 – March 20

The holidays will be exciting and fun because you have planned so much to do.  Loved ones would be adaptable enough when unexpected circumstances change your plans at the last minute.  These changes may be better than your original plans.  If circumstances seem confusing or dramatic, this is the best time to take that energy and turn it into a positive result.  This seems like a bi-polar month.  Things go very well, then fall apart, so it’s best that you just deal with situations as they happen rather than projecting the best or worst scenario for them. The negativity around you is disappearing and you need to reinforce the positive energy that you know is protecting and guiding you to do the right thing.  Love issues may be a tender spot, so understand what the issue is and then do something to resolve it.  Using your mental agility will help you to optimistically deal with any concerns that come your way.  Career issues may be pushed to the foreground and some very important decisions about your future will need to be made.  Be sure you have all the facts before jumping to conclusions that may be incorrect.  If you need to make adjustments to goals, now is the time to make them.

How Your Sun Sign Changes Your Personality

 Most people identify with their sun sign in astrology.  That means that the sun was on the horizon in a certain constellation at the time of your birth.  The other planets are figured out upon this time of the year, your birth time and your residential location.  What’s interesting is that growing up I never considered myself a Gemini because I was redecorating the house, sewing curtains, making flower arrangements and doing macramé and with the help of my mom, a Taurus and natural interior designer, I was always changing things in the house to make it feel and look better.  You can say that I had an obsession with “the home.”

At fourteen, when I became an astrology student, I learned that the planets and house cusps move every year.  So, in essence, you are never the person you were at birth for very long.  Being there is 30 degrees in each sign, you must go through all these degrees until you reach the next sign in the zodiac.  For instance, I was at 22 Gemini at birth, which meant I was a Gemini for only eight years of my life and spent the next thirty in Cancer, a very domesticated, family-loving sign.  Yes, I still had many Gemini traits: I could do more than one thing at a time, I am ambidextrous, write novels, poetry and short stories, interested in metaphysics, talk all of the time, and all the other Gemini traits that everyone says I am supposed to have.  However, it was interesting that all of my energies went into the homestead, the ruler of which was Cancer.  Now that I am in the middle of Leo, my Gemini Sun has more dynamic energy and I feel like I can do anything.   Homelife is not a priority to me.  Having a serious man in my life has been the furthest thing in my mind for over twenty years.  It’s because Leo is an independent, confident, loyal and trusted sign.  It represents knowledge, being daring and taking risks.  It takes care of the less fortunate and believes in helping those in need.

Now you know you most likely will not be the same sun sign (birth sun) that you were born with unless you die very early in childhood from an accident or illness.  Most of us think as we get older, that we mature, become more knowledgeable, handle situations with more grace and confidence; we have different interests than when we were children or young adults and this continually changes until the day you die.  Your interests and curiosities go in many directions.  Sometimes this may surprise even you!  But this is a gradual change as we enter into a new sign.  It would take at least five years in that new sign to make the transition until the twenty-fifth year in one sign when you will begin transitioning to the next sign.…you transition from your new sign into another brand new sign with new beginnings, understanding, hobbies, fascinations and may pursue different areas of philosophy, religion or education.  Your life will most definitely make a dramatic shift.

To add to this information is that your moon sign which controls your emotions, subconscious and feelings changes signs every 2.5 years.  The other planets, including your Ascendant, (the personality you show to the world), change one degree a year.  These are called progressions.  This is where your planets at birth “progressed to” whatever age you were interested in. So, in essence, your whole chart changes every year.  Yes, you still have a birth chart that you were born with and still have the overall personality and characteristics from that chart; however, now you have other influences that impels you into different directions, etc.  Remember, you have free will and can control your life at all times.  The chart is just a template that you may or may not follow, but your personality does undergo many incarnations in a single lifetime!

The thought is that you usually go through the next sign in the zodiac, after the one you were born in, so that you can have a taste of what your life will be like in your next lifetime.  It is said that you go through 12 signs 12 times before you can be rejoined to the Source.  In this way, you have every perspective of all personalities, intellects, creativity, innovation, and understanding for your next life time.  (Whichever sign you currently are in this lifetime, you will be the next sign in your next lifetime.)

Another interesting fact is that when you move, especially from another country or across the USA, your birth chart dramatically changes.  Moving shorter distances may change your chart just a little or perhaps move some planets into other houses than they were originally at birth. You should not use your birth chart anymore because the person born there does not any longer exist. You should have your chart redone for your new residential location.  Some astrologers use the birth chart and then just use the new progressions for the new city, state or country you currently live in.  It depends on whichever way you were taught.  I use both methods and really like the change I see when people move from one location to another.  One may have been introverted, anxious, withdrawn, shy, reserved and timid.  Many times, when this person moves to another location, (s)he is more of an extrovert, congenial, gregarious, fun loving and their mind is expanding in so many different directions.  I have, of course, observed the opposite as well. You should move to a state which has a sun sign that is compatible with your birth sun sign for the most positive energy and results.

I hope this cleared up why you feel you change throughout your life and feel differently about things.  I hear couples say that they are married to someone who has changed from when they were first married.  “You’re not the man I married!”  That is true.  We all change every year and isn’t it wonderful that we do and are allowed to expand our consciousness, awareness, and perception of our lives and world we live in.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.  God bless you and your family during the Thanksgiving holiday and throughout the year.

ARIES – March 20 – April 19

Your family ties, as well as neighbors and people who are important to you is highlighted now.  You may have to deal with discussions and disagreements within these groups.  Be ready to be the negotiator.  It can go either way, so you can have a loving and tender relationship or you can have arguments and disagreements about silly things.  Don’t let the items get out of hand especially around the holidays.  This is a time to reflect, write, communicate your feelings with family and loved ones.  It’s a time to explore and make some good times to remember.  If you do write, this is the time to get that novel, play or short story done.  If you don’t, perhaps this is a good time to take those mini-vacations you’ve always wanted to go on…perhaps a long weekend up in the mountains or at a favorite place.  It’s a time to rethink your life and what you want to add or delete from it.  Be honest with yourself about your wants so you can change your life to be the most positive one you can have during Thanksgiving.

TAURUS – April 20 – May 20

Changes in your home or home life may a surprise.  This would be a positive time to consider moving, if that’s been on your mind, or perhaps redecorate their home in a new way or style.  You know you are going to have a wonderful month including the Thanksgiving holiday.  Many pleasant surprises seem to be in your future, so be prepared to graciously accept what others want to offer.  Your outlook is somewhat improved from the last several months and you are getting your life back on track.  You need to figure out in which direction you would feel more comfortable and then go for it!  This may include leaving some loved ones behind and finding new love interests.  Be open to all kinds of new people coming into your life – it will be fun and you may even learn a thing or two.  Work may be very busy and you feel as if you are so tired, you won’t want to take on another thing, even if it is to have fun.  Pace yourself and you can have the best of both worlds – a very positive work experience and you may even enjoy new beginnings and/or new hobbies or interests as well. 

GEMINI – May 21 – June 20

Get ready for some fun with lof friends and family, especially during the holidays.  Accept invitations to attend parties as you need to get out with other people. Health is fine now, but you should continue to quickly take care of any issues that arise.  Life seems to be getting back on track, but with the holidays just around the corner, you may get overwhelmed again.  Sit back, relax and do what you absolutely have to do for any particular day or circumstance.  You don’t have to do everything for everyone.  Limit yourself.  It’s time for some fun and relaxation.  Enjoy the holidays rather than being overwhelmed by them.  Love life may be a little difficult at the moment but you have so many other things that need your attention.  Finish those projects, get your house in order, and be sure to know what you really want out of life.  Don’t just go with the flow; this is a time when you should be planning for the future. Take care of any medical issues and make appointments before or after the holidays so you can enjoy family and friends during the holidays.  Don’t let your health suffer by ignoring regularly scheduled exams and appointments.  Once they are over, you can get back to holiday fun knowing that you are healthy and that you will be around for a long time to enjoy everything or everyone that is important to you. 

CANCER – June 21 – July

Good luck is coming into your relationships.  If single, this may be a good time to get out of there and meet people because this is a time for partnerships and romance.  Be sure you do not overlook any potential partners that may have loved you for some time but you didn’t notice or perhaps didn’t want to notice. This is an outstanding time for discussion, compromise and seeing each other’s points of view.  It is a time where you will turn into best friends and truly understand each other on a new spiritual level.  Thoughts and long discussions will be shared in a most loving and thoughtful way.  You are extremely sensitive now so be sure that you don’t take too many things so personally as the other person probably didn’t even know you were offended or hurt by the comment.  Ask questions like, “What do you mean by that?” to get to the proper conclusion or at the very least to give the proper response.  Don’t second guess yourself about holiday plans and little things.  Do what makes you feel great and have a wonderful holiday experience. 

LEO – July 22 – August 22

This is a time to throw parties or have get togethers with people you haven’t been in touch with for a long time.  Be sure you have taken care of business or career goals and then you can be free to do what you really feel like doing.  This is not a good time to be confused about your next steps. You want to be in a relationship, but you also want the flexibility to do whatever it is you want to do when you want to do it.  You have great confidence in yourself, but you may seek another’s approval.  There are those who would be happy to give you more advice than you want, so be very specific about the advice you seek.  Just remember, your family and friends are just waiting to help you in any way as a thank you for all you have done for them. Let them assist you as you just can’t do everything by yourself any longer.  Admit it – help would be welcome.  Partnerships should be helpful now whether in business or in your personal life.  Again, another clue that this is not a time for you to do things alone.  Your Leo temper may get the best of you from time to time, but if that happens it may just be that there is too much on your plate and I don’t mean turkey!  Put some things on the back burner and pace yourself so you can enjoy the holidays like everyone else.

VIRGO – August 23 – September 22

Making plans for the holidays is very important.  You should travel, meet up with friends, and perhaps get into different types of religion or philosophies.  Lots of communication is suggested with everyone.  During the start of the holiday season, be sure that you have taken care of mundane tasks so that you won’t be thinking about them.  Update important papers such as wills, insurance policies, living wills, etc.  You seem to be worried about too many inconsequential details now that no one else notices.  This would be a wonderful time to turn your life around in a positive way.  Take a healing or spiritual class.  Learn something new that will give you a different perspective on your life and how lucky you are to be in this beautiful world.  Try to stray out of your “safety zone” a little and explore to see what else is out there for you.  You may be amazed.  Be ready to rest a bit more than usual as it seems you are running around all over the place and find it very hard to relax or even sleep at night.  Calm down and deal with one issue at a time and finish it so it doesn’t weigh heavily on your mind.  Then you will be ready to enjoy Thanksgiving with your family and friends no matter where the holiday conversations take you.  You will be ready to be witty and funny and have an extraordinary time. 

LIBRA – September 23 – October 22

There is a lot of action and activity coming into your life this month.  Do what you want to do now and be ready for lots of interesting experiences.  Go shopping, meet friends and family for lunches, plan small excursions and visit places you’ve always wanted to go.  You may also be thinking of taking care of paperwork and getting boring chores done and behind you before the festivities start at the end of the month.  Organize a list of what you want to get done and then follow the list.  Don’t be the typical air sign and start this and continue with that or finish this half way and start something else.  Be consistent and follow your plan so that you will feel unburdened.  This is such a lucky time for you, so it would be advantageous to get everything you wanted done finished, so you will have time for fun.  If you are having the family or friends to your house for Thanksgiving, prepare the list of chores and food shopping ahead of time and do it over several days so you will have time to rest and enjoy this time of the season.  Elicit help from family members and be sure to ask dinner guests to bring small things like bottles of wine, bread, desserts or appetizers.  This will save you some time and money as well as energy of doing everything yourself.  If you are going to someone else’s house, then you should bring a token as mentioned above unless you are asked to bring something specific.  Enjoy the holidays either way and make time for yourself.

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

Taking care of business, issues and people at work will be very important.  Once your issues are dealt with, you will be able to enjoy your family for the holidays.  Make sure that you spend time with family and appreciate everything that your family has done for you.  Travel plans seem to be in your future, or at the very least you are trying to convince yourself whether or not you can afford to take a trip during this holiday season.  Work seems to improve and you will finally feel as if you are a valued member of the team.  This is a good way to make yourself feel more confident in many issues in which you have had concerns.  You are strong and determined and those attributes will help you find your way through many decisions.  Don’t take on too many extra projects and don’t pressure your staff/employees to do much more during this festive time of the year.  You know their minds are on the holidays and not particularly concentrating on new projects and budgets.  Be sure home life is running smoothly; disagreements may make you confused.  You are trying to make everyone else happy and it seems as if no one is thinking of you.  Discussions should be encouraged.  Everyone can be a little more anxious or upset during all the preparations for the holidays.  Setting up a relaxing atmosphere at home wouldn’t hurt! 

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Good luck will come to you from unexpected sources.  Don’t be upset if plans change unexpectedly because they will most likely be a better alternative to choose. There is a feeling of responsibility and dependability and then you feel as if you just want to have fun and be carefree.  Work is going well although there is a lot of hard work ahead of you, but you can certainly handle it well.  The issue is that you want to do a good job, but are getting tired of all the responsibility without getting any of the recognition for a job well done.  You are just working too hard and not taking care of your health.  Take breaks during lunch time so you can become refreshed and will be able to tackle the job ahead of you with new enthusiasm.  You may be your own worst enemy at this time as well.  Don’t be too hard on yourself.  Do what you can and let other things go.  Self-confidence issues may arise.  It’s not you, but the overwhelming issues that are swarming around you.  Again, take things one at time and finish them and don’t look at the big picture at first.  Deal with smaller issues and everything will fall into place.  Holidays plans may change, but it seems as if you are okay with them.  Let things just flow the way they will and you will be fine.  Keep smiling! 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

You will be very sensitive now so just be aware of that so you are not surprised when something someone said really hurts you in some way.  You are also taking on too many responsibilities and obligations which make you overwhelmed and tired.  Keep everything on an even keel so that when unanticipated events happen, you can get right back onto your path and move forward.  There is so much going on in your mind.  You have to figure out what is the most important issue and do something positive to resolve it.  Many thoughts are leaning towards secrets and keeping things to yourself.  It’s a great time for learning metaphysics or esoterica or just start reading a few good books in whichever field you are interested in.  There are many self-help books to choose from at your local library, so why not look through them. You may find something that feels right to you.  Of course, you don’t have that much time to read, so get a few audio books and put them on in the car so you kill two birds with one stone.  You need to chill a bit and decide on which type of holiday you want.  Do you want to be with all of your family or friends or only a few close family members or friends?  Don’t do what you don’t want to do so don’t let yourself be talked into joining a holiday party that may not fit in with your mood or plans. You deserve some time alone to do whatever makes you happy or to be with the one person that means everything to you.  It’s your decision, but whatever you decide, be sure you are making plans which are best for you and are not being pressured to do what others think you should. 

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 17

You are finding yourself and what makes you tick.  Not being in a relationship is okay with you at this point and if you are in a relationship, perhaps you may want a little more independence to do some of the things that you’ve always wanted to do. Are you being your own worst enemy again?  Things don’t seem to be going on the right track and you are helping others with their issues rather than face your own.  You may feel a bit overwhelmed or depressed as the holidays progress, so get out of that frame of mind now so you can be happy and ready to share the fun season with your family and friends. You are making more decisions about yourself and what you want to do now.

PISCES – February 19 – March 20

Be careful with finances.  It seems as if you may not realize how much you are spending or you may take a serious risk on some investments, so make sure you look at all the options and get professional advice before jeopardizing your financial security.  Be careful about overspending during this holiday season.  You feel you have enough saved to do the shopping you want; however, be to you stay within your budget.  You seem to be tempted to spend more than you usually do for those you love.  The size or amount of the gift doesn’t really matter.  You’ve heard it a million times, but it is the thought that counts.  Also, be reasonable about spending for yourself as many of the things you are looking to purchase you really don’t need at this time.  Buy what you need, not what you want and you will have more than enough for the holidays and into the New Year.  Friends seem to get you somewhat upset by doing crazy things or leaving you out of plans, but you just can’t accept every invitation anyway, can you? You never know, a friend may even ask to borrow some money, so be prepared for that eventuality.  Love life just isn’t as high on the list at this time, so if you are in a relationship/marriage, be sure to pay close attention to your loved one.  If you are alone, enjoy the solitude because things will be hopping starting in the New Year and you won’t have additional time to rest or do whatever it is you want to.

October 2019 Horoscopes

Important Dates:  Sukkoth & Columbus Day on October 14th; United Nations’ Day on the 24th; and Halloween or Samhain on the 31st. 

Akashic Records 

I love to think about that great big library in the sky iwithout any discernable walls called the Akashic Records.  Many say it was placed there by God to record all successes and failures, life paths, and what needs to be learned or shared in a next life time.  All the information on the planet and all that has happened since the beginning of time, has been recorded in the Akashic Records.  Some think that it is the archive that souls from other realities, parallel universes, dimensions or planets, can look into and understand what your soul actually needs in this new reincarnated life.

The premise is that the Akashic Records reside in the fourth, some say fifth, dimension.  Other theories suggest the AR resides in the ethers (Akasha means ethers) around our planet and when other lifeforms come to earth for a third dimensional experience, they can go in to the records of the person they will be reincarnating into to find out which lessons must be learned and perhaps what was tried in the past.  There is usually one major issue that needs to be addressed in a lifetime until the lesson is fully learned. However, you can get in touch with these records through very deep meditation and relaxation.  But the interesting part is that with more understanding and enlightenment on your part and more meditation, you can continue to gain access to different levels of the Akashic Records, so you may be able to tap into the higher dimensions where more information is stored not only on you, your life, and all life successes and accomplishments, but also what may be a good resolutions to your issues, phobias and concerns. It records every action, reaction, good and bad deeds, and then it goes further into all planets, all universes, eternities and dimensions. The more you try to contact these records, the more you will be able to receive messages from guides or angels or just hear an audio message in your head or maybe a song on the radio which conveys a message to you.

Many believe angels and spirit guides, not necessarily those you know, help you find the answers you are looking for.  It may seem like a dream or a fanciful astral projection, but the information is there for all to use. The Akashic Records are non-judgmental, it simply records what happens and what you and others have done in and with their lives, relationships, with children, parents, career, ambitions and dreams.  Everything!  Some people can just access it in their everyday lives after they had studied the AR and meditated often and can get information on anything they want. It is important to know though that you cannot access anyone else’s information without their explicit permission, for instance, if someone is doing an AR reading for you.

It is believed that some souls decide to stay behind in the Akashic Records to reeducate and reprocess new ascending souls who have lost their way or who have brought misery to the world that it would not let them continue on a destructive or menacing path.  People are marked in life, some say with an invisible mark on their backs by an inter-dimensional creature, so that when they ascend, it will be known where they are to go without delay.  In this way, all the souls of those reincarnating to Earth will be extremely positive, kind, compassionate, loving, caring and bring hope back into the world. They will make the planet whole and unite others in just causes to help everyone and save the planet. That’s a nice idea, isn’t it?

ARIES – March 20 – April 19

What a fabulous month for changing your approach to issues, concerns and projects.  You want to get life going in the right direction and you do whatever you can to get the show on the road.  There will be so many opportunities available to you now to change your life journey, if you want to.  Taking a big step may be frightening, but if your heart is into it, do what you must do to get positive options in to your life. This is a great opportunity for you to update your look and do something you’ve always wanted to do, but didn’t have the courage to do it in the past.  Also, love may come into your life, and if you are already married, then a resurgence of romance should be exciting.  Start doing anything that brings you more knowledge and information like learning, reading, researching and perhaps writing. Challenge yourself!

TAURUS – April 20 – May 20

You seem to be asserting your independence in all types of relationships and careers.  You also seem to be super-sensitive at this time, so don’t let a misunderstanding tear apart a good relationship with friends, family or a partner.  You may feel like this is a good time to be more independent and to take on challenges yourself.  You can always do what you want to do, but do include your significant other in some of your activities so you will both stay connected on all levels.  Don’t get into silly disagreements and be sure to keep your loved one first in your life.  There may be a change in a romantic situation for some of you, but all in all, it should be noted that the independence urge will be strong this month.

GEMINI – May 21 – June 20

Be extremely careful about the items you throw away now as you may need those items in the future. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t de-clutter your space, home, apartment, etc., but I think knowing what you will be able to use in the near future will save you a few dollars. Don’t waste money on ridiculous schemes that you think will make you rich!  This is not the time for that type of adventure. Also, don’t let the internet fool you into buying something that turns out to be junk made in China. You may be thinking about getting rid of those excessive parts of your personality and way of doing things which would be better left behind.  If possible, listen more.  You don’t always have to be the main speaker and attraction at parties, gatherings or in the family!  You may find out something that you didn’t know and can later discuss.  Don’t worry about financial issues as the more you worry about it, the more it will come true.  There will be enough for your needs. 

CANCER – June 21 – July

You may be a contradiction of sorts this month.  You may be irritated and frustrated by things you weren’t able to complete and you could feel as if you haven’t accomplished what you had planned.  However, to take your mind off of this, it would be a fantastic time to be a loving parent or mentor to someone who needs to get back on course. Your children or some young children really need your attention, direction and counsel. Give it freely.  However, do not take on so much that you don’t have time for yourself. This is a time for further formal education, lectures, seminars, workshops, or training (for your job or new interest) or any kind of modality to give you the information you desire.  Perhaps thinking of a long journey is on your mind, but you can’t seem to do that now.  Don’t worry, there will be other times to take your trips or vacation.

LEO – July 22 – August 22

Your reputation and career team up as if they were one.  You will do very well in work and may even get a surprise boost in your career.  Be sure that you are fair in all dealings and a moral reputation will follow.  Others will see that you are an honest person and you will gain their trust in many situations that you hadn’t thought about in the past.  You may wish to spend a little more time at home and do whatever it is you want to do in your home regarding clearing the space, redecorating, painting or buying new furniture. Once the new energy comes into your home, it will give you an increase of love, happiness, abundance in all things and inner peace.  Be aware that being critical of a partner, friend or family member may really hurt the relationship.  Think before you speak to them after you have calmed down so you can discuss your issue with them logically rather than with anger!

VIRGO – August 23 – September 22

Invite yourself into new relationships so that you can experience many new adventures on your journey in life.  Even though you may have a few differences, you are smart enough to know that everyone can’t believe in the same things that you do or else it will be a boring world.  This is a time where you should get your dreams and abilities in sync with each other so that you can accomplish many dreams that you have put on the back burner.  Friends, groups and associations seem important now.  Join groups that have similar interests and meet new people.  This would also be a good time to solidify your hopes and dreams.  Take steps to reach your goals.  They aren’t going to come to you on a silver platter. 

LIBRA – September 23 – October 22

Your refinement and personality are in a class beyond compare. You like to be well-dressed and appreciate others who take pride in their appearance. You are a genuine caring person who wants to help everyone; be careful not to spend all of your energy on others that you are overwhelmed when you have to take care of your home, career, projects or chores.  You are equality minded and love to discuss important issues from a spiritual or philosophical point of view.  Joining some classes would be a good diversion for you and you will learn more about a subject you like.  You may procrastinate here and there, but just remember, if you do, you will get stuck in that same negative energy until you change the situation or circumstance.  Make decisions, more forward in a positive manner and don’t be afraid that your situation or idea will be trivial. You may need a bit more confidence in your abilities.

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

Be passionate about your life now.  Don’t worry about the small adverse instances around you since negativity attracts more negativity.  Be thankful for your blessings and more of them will be attracted to you.  Your personal appearance is very important to you as well as the respect of others.  If you can be a little more flexible in your thinking, you will avoid arguments and confrontations.  Dealing with women this month will make you feel fulfilled and happy.  Any type of volunteer work would be a welcomed change. You want to help others, but also want your privacy, so again, balance in all things is desired.  Money issues are on your mind, but you are doing fine.  Just keep up the great savings plan (or wherever you have your money) and you will feel extremely secure about your finances. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

This is a month where you will be racing around doing a lot of travel, or having a great time with outdoor activities.  Even though you are getting back into the swing of things for the beginning of Autumn, you still have many projects that must be completed before starting new ones.  You are very open-minded, lucky and optimistic so your exuberance for life will flow onto others.  Your excitement will be contagious.  Be sure that your family is well taken care of.  Outings with the family would go over well.  Some short trips or weekend getaways would also be a nice interlude from the work week where you could all relax and enjoy each other’s company.  A very good time to be with family, siblings and close friends. Talk over anything that has been an issue between you because now there will be more understanding and sensibleness encompassing both of you.  Life is good. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

You may have some organizational issues and may not be on not on top of projects.  You may have a few issues in taking charge of a project or organization because you don’t want to accept the responsibilities of more than you already have on your plate.  You have the potential to be in charge, if you want to, and take care of many issues whether they are someone else’s or yours.  You may feel like you are on a roller coaster at times as things change quickly that you almost seem as if you can’t get a handle on them, but you do.  You are quite serious this month and may expect that there will be an issue or two which will pull the rug out from under you.  If this is the case, deal with one thing at a time and all will be perfectly handled.  Watch out for misunderstandings and drawing premature conclusions.  Get all of the facts so you can make an informed decision on any topic.

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 17

Home life and getting your home into shape for the upcoming holidays may be on your mind.  At the very least, painting, updating a room’s look or redecorating may also be on your mind.  You take a lot of pride in your home and this is a time where you can shine.  Even small decorative changes and varied accents show your sense of style as well as modernizing your home’s appearance. This may also be a time when you shouldn’t venture out too much.  You have too may things to do, so it keeps you nearby.  It seems you are always taking care of family and friends but don’t have extra time to care for yourself.  You need a break!  Being with your family is important to you; however, don’t get worn out doing things that you really don’t want to do.  Try to balance your life with family, friends and yourself.  You are not winning the race this time, so plan on a few changes.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

This is a time to participate in the arts, such as music, drawing, painting or singing.  You should express yourself more freely now.  There is a lot of thought about occultism, theories, philosophies and dreams. You have too many thoughts and couldn’t possibly handle all of those projects so just follow-up on the ones you think you would like, can handle and want to come true.  Be aware that this is a time where drugs and alcohol may be an issue; if not you, those close to you may abuse these addictions. However, it also indicates that your imagination and creativity is at its peak now so invent or finish something that is important to you.  You have the intelligence to do it, so just do it.  Hesitating will only get your more procrastination and may not make your dreams come true.

September 2019 Horoscopes

Important Dates:  Labor Day, the 2nd; Grandparent’s Day, the 8th, the Autumnal Equinox on the 23rd, and Rosh Hashanah Begins on the 30th. 

How Are the Latest Retrogrades Affecting You? 

Beginning in May of this year, we have had an inordinate amount of retrogrades plaque us.  Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto have been going in and out of retrogrades, not to mention our good friend, Mercury retrograde.  These retrogrades do bring some negative and uninvited results into our lives.  Let’s see what these retrogrades have been up to.

We all know what Mercury Rx does.  It makes miscommunication easy, there are computer, car, and electronic issues that keep us from continuing forward in a job or goal.  Things don’t come together easily.  There are always hurdles to overcome to get to your original goal and it takes longer to get there.  Signing a contract/lease or any important paper during a Mercury Rx would most likely not be in your best interest.

Jupiter Rx may bring good luck through unexpected or hidden means, and unusual circumstances.  It can expand situations and make a bad situation worse.  Depending upon where it is in your chart, it can make you look inward and discover truths about yourself, and can be an expansion time.  If Jupiter goes over your first house cusp, or Ascendant, unfortunately, it makes you gain weight.  It also allows you to have a greater world view and makes you think of what your place is in it.

Saturn Rx is a little more menacing.  It can make you feel depressed, or make you give up on a project, chore, hope or dream as it seems too overwhelming for you to handle.  It can bring in many obstacles for you to obtain your goals and dreams.  However, once you overcome the obstacles, you will be on your way to understanding why you had to go through these tests and the positive outcome it provided you.  It can be extremely distressing and over-powering; however, if you stay your course and continue to chip away at your goals, you will be victorious.  Saturn teaches you lessons you have to learn.  If we learn them, they will never have to be repeated.

Uranus Rx may be precarious in regards to accidents or misadventures if you are not careful. Uranus Rx can make you reckless causing an unfortunate accident or circumstance to arise and can make you take reckless chances.  It may let you stay in whatever part of life you are in because you think it would be too hard for you to move forward towards your dreams.  It may keep you afraid of taking chances and may stall accomplishments, relationships or money-making enterprises.

Neptune Rx is known for its illusion/delusion qualities.  So, you can see things much worse or better than they truly are.  You are living in a fantasy world and may not be able to distinguish right from wrong, and reality from fantasy.  So be careful while making important decisions and ask a trusted friend or family member to help with the decision.  It is, however, illustrious time for writing fantastic tales, poetry, or to accomplish many wonderful things in any of the creative arts where you can express yourself freely.  It would help in expressing yourself in this fashion if you are unable to talk about an issue or concern with others.

Pluto Rx means this is a transformation time.  It breaks down structure in your life and makes it feel as if the rug has been pulled out from under you.  It can cause extensive changes in your life and also makes you look inward to see what things you should change within yourself to attract a positive future.  It tears down walls, and makes you see the truth all around you and forces you to make alterations in your life.  It can be a devastating time, but it also provides you with many new opportunities for the future to get onto a better path and to become a better person.

ARIES – March 20 – April 19

You will find that business-related and personal relationships are your main interest this month.  Don’t be too sensitive as it seems you take too many issues much too seriously and it’s probably not as it was originally meant.  See all sides of a situation before making a decision about the other’s intent.  You may be dealing with secrets or untruths, so double check everything before accepting it as fact.  A close relationship may suffer if you are not paying attention to another’s needs.  Work may not be as satisfying as it once was, but don’t do anything rash.  Find another job before leaving your present place of employment.  Home life can be a bit stifling and unsettling.  Don’t get caught up in the drama and just take care of the things you must attend to.

TAURUS – April 20 – May 20

Money issues and higher education (formal, lectures, seminars, workshops or training) seem to take up much of your time.  Seems like a good time to reevaluate what is important to you.  Is it possessions and money?  Or is it family and friends in your life?  Choosing people/family/friends, etc., is not in lieu of money, but you must balance both equally or you may lose some close personal ties. You have new insights into domestic and financial issues and can cut through the red tape of a situation quickly.  You can get whatever you want now as you plant the seeds of financial, family and business outcomes a little each day.  Your positive energy will bloom like a garden and have many different types of blooms.  You find independence in steady, predictable growth. 

GEMINI – May 21 – June 20

Travel and education seem to be at the top of your list of things to do this month.  Are you thinking of furthering your education?  Have you taken the proper steps to do that?  Or are you waiting for that perfect vacation that you weren’t able to take earlier in the year?  Both are very positive now, so you must decide which area is more important to you.  Philosophies and religion may be of interest now if you are questioning some of your older believes.  This is a transformation time of letting go of anything you aren’t happy with about yourself and replacing it with ethical ideas and reachable dreams.  Reputation and career are important now, so be flexible with others.  Many don’t feel the same way about things like you do, so don’t alienate them but learn from their experiences and insight. 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

Your career and how you handle it is very important at this time.  Things seem to be going your way and there will be many more opportunities for a better salary or getting the job you actually want if you go about it in a very slow, deliberate way.  Don’t be afraid to voice your opinions (respectfully) so that management can see that you have the interest of your company at heart.  If you have a home-based business, then you may want to expand, get a website, blog, or write articles that push your business, etc.  Good luck is following you, so you should use this positive energy while it is there.  This is also a wonderful time to mentor a younger person or take care of family members.  You have it all together and can be a very popular person who seems to take care of it all while remaining true to his/her own principles and ethics.  Interesting month for you.

LEO – July 22 – August 22

Friendships are essential now. Keep the ones that are special and those whom you can trust, but other people who “seem” to be your friends need to go.  Unburden yourself of negative people.  Join a few new interesting groups, collaborate on projects and take this time to do some fun things with your friends and family that you may not have had time to do in the past.  This may be the best time to launch some of your altruistic and humanitarian dreams.  Others always need help and you are in a good position to give of your time and energy now.  You can make many of your past dreams and ambitions a reality if you give it a little time – concentrate on you for a change!  Its time for fun, trying new things, being with positive people and discovering a new side to yourself.  And you may discover new things that you will be interested in for a long time to come.

VIRGO – August 23 – September 22

You are doing too much soul-searching and thinking about too many things that you can’t change or handle. Worries attract new problems and concerns.  You must break this cycle. Be positive and see the bright side of life for a change.  You will be surprised at how many positive situations are then attracted to you. Concentrate on real issues and not ones that have been around for a long time.  The past is gone and you really can’t do anything about it.  The future is what you need to concentrate on.  You should take control of your life and start attaining your dreams and not let your fears, doubts and anxieties stand in your way.  You are terrified to shine and be in the spotlight, but this is where you should be since you have many wonderful qualities and talents that should be recognized.  Perhaps you are procrastinating now as well and should do one thing at a time to get that negative energy away from you so you can shine. 

LIBRA – September 23 – October 22

You may find yourself rather sensitive this month and may take other peoples’ opinions or thoughts to be a direct attack on you. You may also be going back and forth on important matters and find it hard to make a final decision.  Make a decision to see it through so you may get on with your life and have a positive future ahead of you. Once you make a decision on all the information you have, you can then move forward.  Slight concerns about your financial stability may come and go in your mind.  You know you are stable, but you may ask yourself a lot of “what ifs?”  Just deal with issues one at a time as they arise and you will be fine.  Some confusion or concern about a romantic partner (or very close friend) may be lurking somewhere in your imagination.  Don’t waste too much time thinking about it; if you are concerned, do something about it!

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

This is a great time to re-examine your possessions, your financial security and other money-related issues.  You have enough stuff right now and should be purging your home and office of things that are no longer needed, wanted or useful.  Let go of all emotional ties to stuff and decide on voluntary simplicity in your life.  Deal with issues that concern you and don’t worry about all the other negative situations around you.  You can’t help everybody.  This is a time where you may be very interested in investigations, explorations and inquiries of all kinds.  You have traditional values and you will hold onto those qualities to make very important decisions regarding family, especially towards siblings.  Don’t overthink things too much as it may make you unhappy, but you are in a position to help now, so do what you can and then direct your energies to your life.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Family, neighbors, communication and intellect are in center stage now.  So, perhaps you’ve always wanted to write or do some artistic work; this is the time to go after your dreams.  Not only would this be a wonderful time to start experimenting in the arts, but it will also give you a sense of peace in mind, body and spirit.  Dealing with neighbors and family on many levels would work better if you are very clear and precise in your communication with them.  Misunderstandings abound so make sure you know what people are saying to you and vice versa. This is also a time to use your intellect, logic and imagination to plan for a future you really want, whether it is with family or not.  Jupiter in Sagittarius right now is blessing all of your plans and helping you move forward in a positive way.  All you have to do is go after your dreams.  All is there for you for the taking.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

You have finally reconciled home life with your dreams and goals.  You are very sensitive to the needs of your family and do all you can to make family life happy, positive and abundant in all things.  There may be some bumps in the road during the month, but you are well equipped to handle them.  Family members may learn valuable lessons from you as they try to emulate your strength and talents.  Your self-esteem is waning a bit as you have too much to do and you don’t have all the time in the world to accomplish these goals.  You know you can do anything, but only good results will make you believe all the good you have done.  Work can be challenging at times, but all in all, you have a handle on everything, as usual.  You may not like taking charge, but need some organizational skills to get things going in the right direction.  You need to take things more seriously so that they will get done as soon as possible.  You will persevere.

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 17

Be ready for some fun, adventure and exploits.  So many amazing opportunities will be introduced to you to get rid of all the upsetting events in your life. Stop taking things so seriously.  Be around people who are fun and who can lift your spirits. You begin to notice that you become more confident and have more self-esteem after having gone through so many ups and downs in the past few months and yet, you’re still here and doing your best every day.  Try not to take on all the burdens yourself or just handle one situation at a time until it is finished, and then handle the next one and so on.  You may also think of some novel ideas of making a little bit of extra money.  Don’t disregard your thoughts on the subject.  You are working long hours, but the financial security is worth it to you.  Help those who deserve it and know that you can’t help everyone.  You are doing your best and you must be satisfied with that.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

This is an excellent time to get an annual physical if you haven’t had one lately.  Anything that may be considered a health issue should be taken care of by a health care professional.  This is a perfect time to start eating right, exercising on a regular basis and helping others eat better as well.  Also, this seems to be a time of some confusion or mix-ups.  However, this is also an intuitive, spiritual and/or religious time.  You want to use your intuitive gifts to help others.  Learn how to use them properly before trying them on anyone.  Be aware that this can be a time of drugs, outrageous dreams, unusual trips.  Stay grounded and learn about the part of the white occult you wish to learn.  Take classes, workshops or perhaps watch some of the work there is on Youtube to give you background on whatever you are interested in.  Artistic pursuits will be very well received and you will feel as if you have accomplished so much in a little space of time.

August Horoscopes 2019

Important Dates:  Women’s Equality Day on the 26th. 

Your Personal Years in Numerology

If you add your birth month + day + the current year, you will get your current personal year number. Remember, contrary to what some numerologists suggest, these personal years are from birthday to birthday. I always think it’s really funny that some start your new year in January. It is your particular birth date that gives you the energy from birthday to birthday.

My birthday is June 14 to the current year, 2019, so I would add 6 + 1 + 4 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 9 = 23, 2 + 3 = 5. This is just my personal year or anyone else’s that adds up to a 5. Be sure you get the numbers down to a single digit from 1 – 9.  Of course, if your birthday has not arrived as of yet when you are trying to figure out your personal year, you must use the energy for the last birthday you celebrated (2018).  When your current birthday arrives, you will be starting a new year from this birthday to your next.

1 Personal Year – INITIATE

This is a great time to undertake new projects as this is the year you will do it. This is one of the most creative years you can have. This is the best year in the 9-year cycle to start anything new, so think of what needs to be accomplished or handled and start it now. This is an outstanding year to get married especially if the couple is compatible which means that the couple will have a long and lasting marriage. In career, there is no better time to launch a new business or start a new job. You have to do it alone, without partners, friends or family. It is the most critical year to make or break you depending upon if you actually do the things you are supposed to during this time or if you let the energy slide, you won’t have these wonderful opportunities again for 9 years!

2 Personal Year – SMILE

This is a year of consolidation. You may take a back seat this year so do it gracefully. This is a time when family members and friends (even some acquaintances) will be especially important to you. Emotions will be high and you will be extremely sensitive to what others say or think about you. You need to show your patience and understanding to everyone and have the acceptance that not all things will go the way you wish them to. With your patience and tolerance, you gain wisdom and inner knowledge about what you should go after and what you should leave behind.

3 PERSONAL YEAR – ENJOY

This is a great year for dealing with people; you can renew old acquaintances and cultivate new ones. This is another creative year where acting, singing, painting, writing or any other form of self-expression will help you accomplish your inner most needs. This is also a good time for social activities and romance, but if single it is best not to tie yourself down with one partner. Be sure you don’t over-dramatize things, so guard your thinking. Outwardly, there should be few problems, but inwardly, you may become upset over small and unimportant instances and circumstances. Don’t sweat the small stuff.

4 PERSONAL YEAR – STICK TO A ROUTINE

This year denotes completing the task at hand. You may have to make sacrifices this year to get what you want. No important changes should be made during this time period because they may backfire. It is a year of restrictions, limitations, obligations, responsibilities and obstacles if you don’t plan carefully. Be organized and focused on goals and projects and be prepared for some delays in completing tasks.

5 PERSONAL YEAR – EXPLORE

This is a time of high adventure and excitement and above all, it’s a year of change! Escape from the routine nonsense in your life and have some fun. Once you make a change, be ready for others to follow. Everything that is no longer needed in your life will be pushed aside for the new energy you exhibit to the universe. What a great year to start a new romance, but wait for a more stable 6 vibration (next year) to take vows.

6 PERSONAL YEAR – ACCEPTANCE

Responsibilities fill your days this year. Family matters will be important during this time. Many adjustments will have to be made. Great year for buying/selling a home and the very best time to get married. It will seem like an emotional roller coaster between family and friends (including your partner) this year but it is the manner in which you respond to the demands of the challenges that will determine the true outcome of this time period.

7 PERSONAL YEAR- PRAY/MEDITATE

The “desert island” year. You need more time for yourself, especially your higher self which you can get through meditation or prayer. Good time to read about metaphysics or spirituality. Yoga is suggested if you are so inclined. Not a good year for investments or business changes. A good year for long trips and extended vacations to off the beaten paths where there is plenty of time to think your life through. This is truly a spiritual growth year. Also, expect the unexpected.

8 PERSONAL YEAR – ACTION

This is considered a harvest year where you reap what you have sown. A strong year to do anything regarding power and wealth. Profound time to start a business, extend your business into partnerships or to expand and speculate. This is a definite material gains year but only if you push to make them happen. On the down side, this can be a time when karmic payback can haunt you which may show in the form of loss of one kind or another. Generally, a power year.

9 PERSONAL YEAR – ENDINGS

Your basic year of endings. Do not begin things that you wish to last as anything started in a 9 year is doomed to failure. Tie up loose ends, put things on the shelf for another time, and organize your life for the upcoming wonderful new 1-year energy just around the corner. Clean your house, organize your closets, finish paperwork and make plans for new ventures and journeys for your 1 year. Great year to think and plan but not act. If romance, friendships, marriage, job or home is initiated in this year, it will more than likely be a thing of the past before the year is out. It could be a time of sorrows which could entail some pain or sacrifice on your part.

ARIES – March 20 – April 19

The summer seems to be coming to an end and you have so much that still needs to be done.  A bit more discipline in getting those things done will help you feel so good about your shortened “to do” lists. Health issues including exercise and diet programs are on your mind.  You want to get your body in shape.  Even though you have been thinking about a slimmer or healthier you for some time, perhaps you did not give it the old college try.  This time it will work.  If you need a yearly physical exam, stop putting it off and make an appointment to see your healthcare professional.  Many changes are on their way.  You feel that it’s time for something different.  Right now, personal freedom and choices is a big issue.  You are tired of the old hum drum stuff that just isn’t working any longer.  You would like to be free to make your own path without comments from the peanut gallery.  Arians are very strong people who want to defend their right of self-expression no matter what the cost.  It’s a time to be cognizant of everything that is no longer working in your life and choosing a different path.

TAURUS – April 20 – May 20

Budgeting your income is important now so that you will have whatever you need in the future to deal with unexpected expenditures and responsibilities. You may be thinking of making a very important move in your life.  Think of all the consequences before taking on this daunting change.  If everything seems to fall into place easily, then it is meant to be.  If you need to keep finding obstacles in your path, perhaps this is not the time for you to go in a different direction.  Ride out the storm or do something else to pass the time until the time is right.  Nervous energy and maybe feeling a bit depressed and confused over your life may be happening at the moment or will soon follow.  This will be short lived. Remember, there are always other options or solutions, even though you may not have thought of them yet.  Career continues to go well, but it seems to be getting a tad more stressful and you may be unenchanted with the policy or people you work with.  Patience and logic will get your through these challenging times.  Hang in there.

GEMINI – May 21 – June 20

What a lovely time to take care of yourself inside and out.  A spa day, joining a new gym (or doing exercises at home) and buying a few new outfits on sale for summer would be just what you need to lift your spirits. This is a wonderful time to rekindle romantic relationships or take your relationship to the next level.  If you are not in a romantic partnership at this time, there is always hope.  The combination of Venus and Jupiter in Gemini gives you amble opportunity to attract someone special.  However, the trick is you have to get out of the house or away from the computer to find that person!  You tend to be warm, friendly and open now and extremely tolerant of others.  Use your quick wit and humor to diffuse any uncomfortable situations and you will do well this month.  Most would love to invite you to their parties or get togethers because you are a very interesting and funny person, so when you are invited out – go! 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

Dust off those suitcases and make plans to get away for a vacation or a mini weekend vacation with your partner or family.  There is so much to be done.  You have a list of activities that need to be attended to and so many responsibilities to handle, so before you are overwhelmed with everything, take much needed time for yourself and enjoy.  Your constant worry does not help anyone including yourself; remember, when you worry about family or friends, you are actually causing them harm.  Worry is negative energy so you don’t want to have more negative energy attracted to them, so just wish that they make good choices, are safe and blessed, etc.  Neighbors may be an issue, whether you are helping them or perhaps having some issue with them, so just be aware that this is a temporary thing and let it go.  Otherwise, new beginnings and changes are coming to you.  If you feel stressed or overwhelmed, it is a sign that you need to take better care of yourself.  No one else will do it for you, so you must do it for yourself. 

LEO – July 22 – August 22

You are shedding the old you and looking for a more glamorous you. Whether it’s a makeover, buying new clothes or just a new hair color – have fun with this whimsical energy around you.  There is also a good deal of excitement, vitality and good opportunities coming your way.  This is a great time to expand your business or look for a better position; if you are totally satisfied with your job, then this may be a time for reorganization or a time when you should put some of your amazing ideas into practice.  Share them with someone in authority to get the ball rolling. This is also a wonderful time to think about your life and what you love about it and what you wish to change.  It’s a great opportunity to get rid of the dead-end jobs, people or projects that are bringing you nothing but regret and trouble.  Making good decisions about your future, your new objectives and goals are very important at this time so think plans through before taking any big steps.  If you are unsure about a direction to take, perhaps you need to rethink your plans and move a bit slower.

VIRGO – August 23 – September 22

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to learn more about spirituality and enlightenment.  Reading metaphysical or esoteric books, going to lectures and seminars or any other form of learning in this field will be in your best interest.  You feel as if many things are changing in your life and the choices you make in the next few months will make a big difference in your future.  Choose logically and wisely.  Think things through carefully and then make an informed decision.  Friends’ actions will be very confusing to you.  You should be very patient and try to understand the issues they are dealing with.  In turn, they will be very understanding towards any of your concerns or worries that may come up in the future.   Romantic affairs as well as children may also be confusing issues for you and you really want to straighten things out because you are getting tired of the chaos.  Be aware that those close to you may exaggerate or lie about situations, their feelings or beliefs because they do not want to hurt your feelings.  Be considerate and let them off of the hook easily because they actually thought you would have been otherwise upset. 

LIBRA – September 23 – October 22

Making decisions is never an easy task for you; however, this seems to be a very important time where you must weigh friendships and relationships in general to see whose side you will take and which direction you will proceed after sifting through all of the facts.  This is a month of handling your responsibilities and obligations with a smile on your face, so you can move on to more fun things that you want to do.  You can’t move on with so many things hanging over your head.  Ask for help from loved ones or close friends who would like to repay you for all the positive things you have done for them over the years.  Even though you may seem as if you are on a perpetual see-saw, trying to get things done and then being stymied by responsibilities and tasks, things will straighten out and you will feel a great deal of accomplishment and pride in getting your jobs done.  Be aware of your words since a stray thought or comment could alienate you from a loved one.  Be extra caring and compassionate towards your partner so that life will be more enjoyable as a couple.

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

The burdens of life are lifting slowly but surely and you are much more able to handle any issues that come your way.  Being a very patient (yet stubborn) person, you will not want anyone or anything to get in the way of your upcoming plans.  Part of your wishes for drastic changes including jobs, moving and even in an important relationship, are only in the thinking stages at this time. Some are considering retirement or taking a part time job instead of dealing with the monotony of your current position.  Others will finally make a bold move and think about starting their own home-based business and have the freedom they always wanted to work from home and to have a more flexible lifestyle.  Thinking changes drastically.  Your core being is in a transition phase of what do you really want in this life vs. what you need to survive.  Fear is the only thing holding you back from doing what you want to do.  Perhaps finding something that is fun or enjoyable would be a good place to start to see what is missing in your life.  This is not the best time to look for a new romantic partner, but there may be some issues with your current one.  Figure out what the issues are and then just deal with them one at a time until compromise or resolution is reached – then all will be well.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Good changes in health and service to others, whether it’s in the volunteering venue or however you help others, will give you the confidence to help others more. Health seems to improve even though you may not be taking extraordinary care of yourself.  You are trying! Money and your financial security are blessed now, but be a bit cautious about large expenditures since you are in a very generous mode and may just give your financial security to those who really do not deserve it.  This is a time to shine in many areas of your life.  Do what you want to do and try what you have been unable to do in the past.  Be open to new ideas, but try to be a bit more grounded and focused when taking on too many new responsibilities.  You know how you are – being a bit too scattered for your own good will only get you frustrated at all the things you’ve left undone.  Start a few new things and when they are completed or if you’ve lost interest, then start new ones.  As long as you think things through logically and with your infamous reasoning abilities, you will be able to do everything on your mind now.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Even though some of the family issues may seem too overwhelming to deal with at times, things will be going in a much better direction if you take the lead and make some much-needed decisions.  You cannot change anyone else, so change your reaction (or lack of reaction) and everyone else will adjust to follow your lead.  Make sure you are not worrying about anyone that you love since the negative energy will only attract more negativity to your loved one–send blessings, love and good decisions their way instead.  You may feel as if so much is going on in your life, that you don’t know where to start.  Handle what is most important to you whether it’s your job, home life, partnership, your children and/or friends or friend issues.  There seems to be so many changes on the horizon for you in the near future that life will be an interesting adventure with many new joys, celebrations and tons of fun.

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 17

Home life is important and may change.  Making decisions about your future is also just as important.  Getting your home set up the way you want it would be a great first step towards making your house or apartment seem as if it is finally your sacred space.  Get everything that you need to make the space your own. If single, this is the time to go out and have some fun after some of the upsetting circumstances during the last few months.  Others have moved on with their lives, so why haven’t you?  Your mind is constantly thinking of the past or those from your past and it would be wise to deal with those situations whether through therapy, counseling or prayer.  It’s time to move on and enjoy the life you have with gratitude and appreciation for all that you have.  New furniture may be on the agenda or at the very least a quick facelift of your space perhaps through painting a few rooms, window treatments or brilliant colored bed linens.  Organizing and reorganizing seems to be in your future.  You are not quite sure exactly what you want to have done, but once you figure it out, your space will be stunning.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Your charm and charisma are well known in the astrological community and you seem to be using it a lot to get what you want.  Don’t fall into the trap or lying or exaggerating since it will get worse as the year goes on.  Then you will find yourself in the deep end of a hole that you have dug yourself into without a shovel in sight.  Deal with this time in a spiritual or religious way.  You need to relax, meditate and get in touch with your inner self.  Perhaps you may want to go to a retreat as a vacation to center and ground yourself.  If you can’t do this, make sure you surround yourself with those who are positive and in the same mind set of serenity and tranquility as yourself.  Being careful with finances is also a good thing since you may be tempted to spend impulsively. Learning how to deal with a budget would be a positive step to your financial future and security.

July Horoscopes 2019

Important Dates:  July 4th, U.S. Independence Day! 

SOLAR ECLIPSES – NEW BEGINNINGS

The male or positive signs are Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius. The feminine or negative signs are Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces.

The solar eclipses below will indicate if they are for the benefit of positive or negative signs.  When an eclipse is not in your positive or negative group, it does not give you easy opportunities or positive energy to make things go your way.   You must be very persistent to make things go the way you want them to.  Things may get blown out of proportion and life gets difficult. These could result in issues with: family, partners, health, career or money and so many other areas of life. Now you know one of the reasons why life isn’t treating you fairly.  However, we have free will and can change anything we don’t like or need.  So, on an eclipse, make it a positive day no matter what you do and the next six months and your life will steadily improve.

What are your goals? This is a great time to deal with your wish list of what you really want to happen in your life to help push your dreams, aspirations and desires forward. I usually don’t work with lunar eclipses too much because their effect is less than a month, but if you do, it rules your emotional life and your level of sensitivity. It can heal you on so many levels as Mother Moon sends her blessings and good luck your way to deal with anything going on in your life from an emotional point of view.  However, the solar eclipse is like a video that gets played over and over again until the next one which occurs.  The next few years’ eclipses are as follows:

July 2, 2019 – Cancer – negative

December 26, 2019 – Capricorn – negative

June 21, 2020 – Cancer – negative

December 14, 2020 – Sagittarius – positive

June 10, 2021 – Gemini – positive

December 4, 2021 – Sagittarius – positive

So, this is a great time to plan that day as best you can. Have time to work and play, rest, read, watch TV, exercise, start a new diet, be with friends and family you want to be with and avoid those you don’t. It’s a great time to have a meal with your partner, family or kids so you will have more time during the next six months to do that.   No matter which sign you are, just remember:  whatever you are doing on that solar eclipse day will also be your priorities for the next six months. Be creative, have fun and do spend the time doing what you really want to be doing for the next six months. Be with family and friends so you’ll have more time to spend with them.  Avoid people you want out of your life and they will be weeded out automatically a little at a time.  No operations, dentists, medical procedures of any kind on that day or you will be going to the doctor until the next eclipse.  DO NOT pay bills on that day or your intent is to always be paying bills.  AND do put money in the bank so you will have more money to save than spend.  Read, write, do something artistic, take a walk, start an exercise program, a healthy diet or do something that makes you feel wonderful – a makeover perhaps?

LUNAR ECLIPSES – JUST LET THINGS GO

Lunar eclipses always occur on full moons.  Lunar eclipses give us a glimpse into our “souls.”  This can be about realizing that you may not be as good, generous and kind to others as you imagined.  It could show you the way to help others who have less than you do.  Emotions that we may not like, such as anger, jealousy, fear or aggression, may need to be handled.  It also helps us become the person we wish to be.  Lunar eclipses can be very important times of self-discovery.

Happy eclipse to all.

ARIES – March 20 – April 19

This is a great time to get out and do whatever it is you need to do.  You have the energy, the intent and the vision to make your life pleasurable and to get rid of anything that is negative.  You are energized and excited about doing so many interesting things and having new experiences this summer.  Partnerships are not a major concern although you wonder if you are really with your perfect partner sometimes.  Business partnerships may change or you are looking for more dynamic energy to expand your business.  Don’t settle now since the universe is pushing you out of your comfort zone for a reason. You are ready for the unexpected, and are ready to reconsider your career goals.  Even though things may get relatively confusing, just keep your cool, do what needs to be done and you will be going in the right direction. 

TAURUS – April 20 – May 20

Your friends are helpful now.  If things just don’t seem up to par, they will come by to lift your spirits or give you an encouraging word.  You are too busy and stressed; you need some down time which they will insist upon.  When you find a spare moment, you should take a walk in your garden, neighborhood, a local park or just go on a picnic to rejuvenate yourself. Your emotional life is becoming more balanced every day and you are thinking in a much more home-like fashion.  Do you need a new place to live, a more nurturing environment, or are you just going to tweak your current living arrangements to make them more appealing? House hunting, home and yard projects or seeing your home with new eyes and new intention is very important.

GEMINI – May 21 – June 20

Good changes are coming your way if you know how to use the energy around you.  Friends are important at this time, so don’t forget them.  Keep in touch and try to rekindle the friendship between you.  Fix family relationships too or bring more joy to them. Promoting a business may be what you currently need to do to bring in more money. You aren’t taking advantage of all the tools that are available on the web for free advertising.  Set up a workshop or lecture at a local library or women’s organization to promote your business and get out in to the public’s eye. You have too many irons in the fire and need to focus on the most important issue, job or situation that will bring in the most money or makes you the happiest.  

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

You may be changing jobs, looking for a new home or trying to find out if the relationship you are in is the right one for you. Nothing seems to be satisfying you now, so you are looking for every option or contingency to see if you can find that happiness and lust for life that you used to feel.  On the other hand, this is a great time to travel, get further formal education or attend lectures, seminars, events, workshops or training programs from which you could get a certification for another job.  Even though things just don’t seem to be making sense to you right now, everything will start definitely forming so that you can change your life into a more positive direction. 

LEO – July 22 – August 22

Communication is important so you must talk to those with whom there is an issue.  You need to straighten things out and be understood.  Do not let others make you feel badly about anything that you have done. Things just seem complicated now and a bit confusing, especially where you are concerned.  You will be doing a lot of thinking to sort things out and will be very active. Good luck is on your side now so start new projects and get things underway that have been on the back burner.  You are getting serious about so many things in life now, including a loved one. If married or in a relationship already, things seem to be going in a much better direction.  Unusual situations and changes in your life make you rethink all of the help you have given to others.  You need to keep your own counsel and not share a lot of your feelings with others.  The time will be right when others should know how they have injured you or caused you some regret.  Your time is coming. 

VIRGO – August 23 – September 22

Home life is very important now so make sure you get back to basics and stop being so sensitive! You are planning to revamp, refurbish or redesign your space. Make sure you are not worrying over nothing and communicate with others so everyone is on the same page.  Keeping things inside will not help anyone.  You are confused, concerned and have a lot of issues to deal with which seem to cause you fears, doubts, anxieties and possible depression.  Be strong and take the bull by the horns and deal with whatever you have to and move in the right direction.  Deal with facts and handle things as they come. More money is coming your way, so if you are planning to start or expand a business, this is the time to do it. 

LIBRA – September 23 – October 22

You are handling things better now than earlier in the year.  You have come to the realization that you want to go after things that make sense to you and not do what other people want you to do.  Librans seem to be setting more boundaries so that they have more time to do what they need to do to satisfy their ambitions, career and free time.  Business or personal partnerships seem to change, but in a good way.  You are attracting positive partners and will also find time for yourself to share with family and friends in travel, activities, family parties and celebrations.  

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

Taking care of family seems paramount now.  You want to be everything to everyone, but be careful not to over extend yourself.  Your constant complicated routine of working, cleaning, taking care of everything, shopping, laundry, hobbies, nights with the family, cooking, etc. may become too much to handle if you don’t give yourself some down time.  Get help, organize, delegate and set up a time to visit friends or family for some relaxation.  A yoga or meditation class would be great to relieve stress.  Also, try to take more classes in various areas of interest including hobbies and crafts in which you have an interest.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Things are falling into place for you now.  Just when you think nothing else is going to change, here comes another life altering experience. However, with these changes comes good energy and new beginnings in so many areas of life. You are getting things accomplished and are happy with the result.  There may be some health issues that need to be looked into, but once you take the initiative and go to the doctor or health care professional, you will be relieved to find out that your issue is not as bad as you had thought or that it can be taken care of easily. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Caps are hard-working and diligent, but somehow the universe is always ready to push you into something new whether or not you are ready for the change.  Home life is interesting now and seems to conflict with what you want out of life or goes against your beliefs at this time.  Dramatic instances and upheavals may seem upsetting at the time, but in the long run, it happened to help you move forward into a new direction.  This could be a direction you never thought of, but now there is guidance to go into that new direction. Think things through and weigh all of the options for your future. Good luck will find you once you feel you are going in the right direction – that luck will push you towards your goals and dreams. 

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 17

Sometimes situations from the past should stay in the past. Thinking of the past will only cause you upset and never get you to where you need to be to find to improve your romantic relationship or to find a new partner. Finances continue to be an issue, but with diligence and careful planning, all the concerns will be easily handled.  Budgeting is an important tool to get your finances back on track and to take care of all the obligations that you need to.  Dealing with a spouse’s finances or getting his/her finances back on track may also be one of your responsibilities. But do not be a cheap skate.  Buy what you need at this time and take those vacations that will make your relationship with your spouse stronger. You would prefer never to handle another responsibility again, but they do seem to continuously find you.  

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

This is a wonderful time to write, act, paint or do whatever you feel is in your artistic nature.  You may also be involved in some intrigue that gets you into trouble.  Keep secrets to a minimum and don’t let others talk you into doing things that you know you should not be doing.  Things may seem to be blown out of proportion but in a good way.  You may have too many friends, too much work, too many parties to go to and just too much to do for the time you have allotted.  Organization is the key to your success now.  Your emotions are calmer than they have been in some time and you are open to new experiences, new ventures, journeys and a new direction in life.

Make sure you are doing wonderful and positive things on the eclipses so that your next 6 months (or to the next eclipse), your life will be happy and abundant in all areas of life.
An Annular eclipse is pretty special, but if you are used to seeing a Total Eclipse then an Annular feels like a great buildup and then the peak just doesn’t happen.
The key difference is that the Moon is further away from the Earth during an Annular as compared to a Total Eclipse. This gives the appearance of the Moon being smaller in the sky, and it no longer completely covers the Sun. Instead, a ‘ring of fire’ remains – the Sun still emits direct light. Even though the light is greatly reduced, it is still not possible to safely view with the naked eye. Filters must be used throughout. As a result, key features of the Total Solar Eclipse are missing.
