ARIES – March 19 – April 18

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.  You want to enjoy all the family and friends you may have lost touch with this year.  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.  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.  All in all, you are on the go, having fun, and connecting with friends and family who love your company.

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

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. 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.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 19

Is work stealing time from spending it with loved ones?  Compromise.  It is 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. 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.

CANCER – June 20 – July 21

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 entertain and possibly cook; however, it also makes you feel comfortable to be in your own home to do whatever you want to.  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.  Using your intellect to make decisions rather than emotional ones will help you choose the better option.

LEO – July 22 – August 21
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 22 – September 21

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 22 – October 21

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.  Spending money for beautiful things is a constant in your life; however, it may be time to see if you really need any more jewelry, house accessories or gifts.  Consulting a partner on financial choices or where you spend the family riches will allow you to spend more freely.

SCORPIO – October 22 – November 20

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 well-being.  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 21 – December 20

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.  Leave your house and attend holiday parties or go on that holiday getaway with a loved one even though your partner may wish to stay closer to time. Try to be a little more sensitive to a loved one’s feelings as it seems you may be somewhat oblivious 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 and compromise to make a happy holiday season.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19
Networking becomes effortless as you meet many more people through friends, new clubs, memberships and organizations.  New friends and associations help propel your career through this holiday season.  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 in your own home.  You will feel very relaxed and others will appreciate your thoughtfulness.

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 17

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 past year. 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. What a wonderful time for you to look into new cultures and traditions.

PISCES – February 18 – March 18

Positive energy has started to stick to you and all you need to do is reinforce the energy 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 dreams and goals, now is the time to make them. The holidays will be exciting and fun because you have planned so well. 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.  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.

ARIES – March 19 – April 18

Many unexpected changes occur this month dealing with siblings, family issues and even perhaps vacation or trip plans.  Emotions may be off center at times being you are running around doing so many things for the upcoming holidays that you are exhausted and stressed beyond your limit.  Talk things over with family and friends with whom you are having an issue.  Don’t let things fester and become a bigger problem than it truly is.  Creativity and artistic pursuits would be a nice diversion to get your mind into a calmer and more relaxed state.  Romance seems to continue to be going in the right direction.  If not attached, then perhaps one of those changes may be a significant other coming into your life – be ready for anything and enjoy the holidays.

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

Good luck will be protecting you and your loved ones during this Thanksgiving month.  This is a time to spend the money you had set aside for the holidays, whether it is on home projects or on buying gifts.  Try not to go overboard on gift giving, but you know your tendency to shower gifts on those you love.  The changes that are happening in your life are good ones so if you go with the flow, you will be directed to a more positive direction.  Emotions run high and then are more grounded as you realize that things happen for a reason and you kind of go with the flow a little more than usual.  Try to be as logical as possible with all of your dealings and situations now and decisions will flow easier.  Sometimes you may need to talk things over with someone before putting the burden on yourself.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 19

Many issues or situations seem difficult at first, but once you decide to be logical about the concerns, you will make the perfect decision which will be right for you.  Remember to take care of any health issues immediately and keep up with your annual doctor appointments. Many Gems are trying to diet after our stay at home earlier in the year an before the holidays, so if they gain a few extra pounds, it will even itself out.  This is a time to connect with the universe and learn more about your place in it. Disappointments happen, so if things do not go the way you think they should, acknowledge the situation for what it is.  You may have to deal with things that are unpleasant, but dealing with them all the same is important to your family and you.  You are a strong sun sign and can do whatever you put your mind to and it seems you will be tested.  Things always have a way of working out for the good of all involved, so let the universe work its magic.

CANCER – June 20 – July 21

Business and personal partnerships may be strained as the holidays get closer, but with a bit more tolerance and patience, you will be able to handle anything that comes your way. Deal with partners with love and understanding.  Don’t judge others and be very careful about saying something that you may regret in the future.  If things need to change, initiate the change and don’t suffer in the same negative situation that you have been for some time.  You may feel as if the weight of the world is on your shoulders, but things will start to improve slowly but surely, so plan for the holidays and get your mind off of unimportant trivialities. The upcoming season will bring you much joy shared with family and friends, so have a wonderful Thanksgiving and be grateful for all of your blessings.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

The activity level for you this month is astounding!  Be ready for anything.  Work has some interesting turns, but if you see the whole picture instead of concentrating on the small insignificant occurrences, you will see that things have a way of working out for the best.  Finances are confusing and things just don’t make sense at the moment.  Make sure you figure out what steps you need to make financially sound decisions.  There are moments when you feel you will need to know everything that is going on within your family and your circle of friends and then times when you feel that you should take care of yourself.  Balance is the key. Deception or secrets may be at play here, so be sure to carefully check everything out.  There will be plenty of circumstances for illusion to take hold, but make sure you keep reality in check.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

Higher education, lectures, seminars, training, workshops, classes, DVDs, CDs, TV, radio, audio books, etc. may play an important part in getting you to the next level with your job or formal education.  You will be busy, but with a little extra effort, it will be well worth it for the benefits they will provide.  Getting interested in other cultures or traditions for the holidays is a possibility.  You want a more interesting holiday and decorations around your home than in past years and are open to suggestions. You want to bring in more fun and interest. This is a really good time for you to make plans for the upcoming year since you are level headed, grounded, logical and organized and life is going in a good direction.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 21

Education and career keep you on a never-ending roller coaster.  You want to take things slowly and deal with everything fully before handling the next issue.  It’s a perplexing time so making decisions carefully will certainly help you continue on the right path.  If you are thinking of getting higher education for your job or additional training, that would be a good thing now.  You seem to be confused about many issues in your life so if you write a list of just a few things that need to be decided and start with the most important one first, then your decisions will be handled quickly.  Try to stay focused on your main objectives since you are scattered and want to accomplish too much in a short period of time.  Try handling one main issue per day.

SCORPIO – October 22 – November 20

Career decisions need to be made.  Are you staying with this job or considering looking elsewhere? Work seems to be crazy at times and then calm and rewarding at others, so there needs to be more balance in the work place.  Home life has a similar scenario right now so it would be good for you to handle the most important issues and deal with the lesser choices at another time.  Communication is the key to handling many of your issues.  Misunderstandings may occur if you assume too much.  Be especially attentive to your significant other or other women in your life.  There is a major issue which needs to be resolved and only you can fix it if you face it head on.

SAGITTARIUS – NOVEMBER 21 – DECEMBER 20

You may find out many things about family members and friends this holiday season which may surprise you, but all in all, it’s a really fun time.  There are places to go, people to see and things to do.  You have so many plans that you are not sure what you should do first.  Get organized and make a plan of action and then share it with family and friends so everyone knows what you are doing.  Be sure to rest and take care of yourself since you don’t want to be exhausted before any of the partying or get togethers occur.  Don’t be surprised if not everyone is okay with your plans since you may include too many people or intend to take up too much time with your adventures.  Communication helps smooth things over.

CAPRICORN – DECEMBER 21 – JANUARY 19
Changes keep coming your way and you wonder when it will be over.  Sometimes change is good so before you label the type of change that has happened to you, give it a chance to play out.  You are dynamic and energetic now, and have to realize that your life may need to go in a different direction to meet your goals and dreams.  Your emotional nature is closer to the surface now so you tend to be a bit more emotional or sentimental during this time of the year.  Obligations and responsibilities may put a kink in your holiday, but once you deal with them, you will be ready to have fun with family and friends.

AQUARIUS – JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 17

Finances are confusing, upsetting and distressing; however, better times are coming.  You will catch up on all of your financial obligations within the next few months.  Do not go overboard on buying gifts this holiday season.  Everyone is cutting back, so why shouldn’t you?  Life is overwhelming as usual, but you seem to be on top of things.  Handling one thing at a time is a great way of dealing with the most important issues first and then leaving the less important ones for another time.  You have too much on your plate right now, so relaxation, meditation or prayer may help you sort things out.

PISCES – February 18 – March 18

Sticking to a financial budget or plan of action is important.  The success of your abundance and prosperity will be rewarding in itself.  Even though many changes are pushing their way into your life, you will be able to make important choices which will push you in a much more positive direction.  The positive opportunities for you during this holiday season are plentiful and you need to buckle down and decide which ones you will take advantage of and which ones you need to let go.  Your career may be surprising as you get offered a new position or more money for handling more responsibility.  Believe it or not, your employer does appreciate your contributions on the job.

Important Dates:  October 3, Sukkoth; the 12th, Columbus Day, (Thanksgiving, Canada); the 24th, United Nations’ Day; and the 31st, Halloween.

LIBRA: Scales (of Justice)

Keywords are balance, romance, negotiation, compromise, companionship, and harmony.  Artistic, indecisiveness, diplomacy, polished, sociable, charming, outgoing, peaceable, and a true procrastinator.  This sign finds it very difficult to make quick decisions and constantly listens to others’ opinions about what they should do. To them, not making a decision is a decision. These people are also one of the suckers of the zodiac because they are too giving, caring, loving, kind, generous, and honest and do so much for others.  They rarely get anything back in return and it takes them very long in life to realize that others have been using them; then they may form some boundaries and limitations.

Colors:  Lighter blues, pink, and soft rose.

Libra rules the kidneys and lower back.

Venus represents Relationships, pleasure, love, attraction, indulgence, art, affection, harmony, friendship, sexuality, emotional expression, beauty, and sensuality.  The sign of Venus relates to how you interact with others in relationships and friendships.  It also shows how you express sexual attraction and what qualities you are attracted to in others.  Venus rules the signs of Taurus and Libra.

Venus represents the Goddess of Love.

Quality — Cardinal.  Changeable, Active, and Ambitious.  Other Cardinal signs are Capricorn, Aries, and Cancer.

Element — Air.  Keywords are:  intellectual, communicative, rational, quick-witted, changeable, inventive, motivated, restless, critical, judgmental, detached, resistant, and sarcastic.

Other Air signs are Aquarius and Gemini, which are Libra’s best matches.

Semi fruitful sign. — Polarity:  Masculine/Positive — Gemstone:    Peridot    — Opposite Sign: Aries

ARIES – March 19 – April 18

Homelife is busy with projects and responsibilities.  So many things seem to be changing in your life and with these changes come new beginnings.  All changes lead to new paths and better opportunities.  Love life may be more exciting; love is rekindled or you may find a new love that suits your moods and intellectual level better than ever before.  Homelife is very important now so you may be thinking of moving, beautifying your home, or finishing up projects that have been left on the back burner for too long.  Creativity is a Godsend now since it helps you relax and get away from many of your responsibilities and scattered energy that you must expend continuously just to get through each and every day. Let the children choose which costumes they would like to wear this Halloween.

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19
Love life and children seem to be the most important issues in your life this month.  Many personal changes come to you. There is no surprise from others that you can handle whatever you put your mind to and you do it so well.  You may be more serious than usual, but you are handling all obligations well. Children are very important in your life now so do what you feel is necessary to help them along with their education, after school activities, and their social lives.  Your sincere ingenuity is amazing and many are amazed that you come through situations and circumstances with flying colors.  You are determined to do whatever it takes to accomplish your goals right now.  Taureans are in better spirits and thinking long term now.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 19
Partnerships are emotional, to say the least. Y our love life may not be the one you had wished.  It seems to have outlived its usefulness.  Many things will be blown out of proportion and it’s up to you to set things straight.  The truth goes a long way in paving a peaceful path towards a happy future. Make sure you know what or who you want in your future so you can plan your life accordingly.  Basically, it’s a time to plan things for couples, whether with your significant other, lover or children, siblings, family members, or close friends. Try to think of all the projects that have been pushed aside so you can do things for others.  Maybe it’s time to make yourself first so that you will feel a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment.  Try to pinpoint only one or two Halloween costumes for the kids (or yourself) before you will never be able to decide what to be and the day will come and go just as quickly as your thoughts about it.

CANCER – June 20 – July 21
Relationships and finances are on your mind this month.  There seem to be changes coming into your life, but you are not sure how to handle them.  You want positive change but may not be ready for all the good things which are coming your way.  You always help others and may not find it easy to accept help from others but this is a time to collect your karma chips for all of the good deeds you have done for others.  Let others help you.  Career may be in a state of flux; however, things will work out for the best once you accept the fact that life has its ups and downs and that things usually happen for a good reason.  Cancerians may be a bit fussy over choosing a costume for Halloween so let your children have a say in what they want to wear. 

LEO – July 22 – August 21

Finances play a huge role in your family and your life this month.  Many decisions regarding financial security have to be made and you are ready to make them.  You want to get from underneath money issues and will try to start saving for things you really need instead of charging purchases.  You may wish to go to school, get additional training or work towards other certifications or degrees for the good of your career future.  Travel is always on your mind, but other things must come first.  Pay attention to your family’s needs; they need your time and energy in their lives. Give the gift of time to yourself.  If you are going to go out on Halloween, do something totally unexpected.  Choose a costume that is totally opposite of what you would normally choose and surprise your friends and family.  Have fun.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21
Virgos are thinking of travel and education, but not doing a lot about them at this time. You are extremely sensitive and emotional although you may try to hide it from those you love. Don’t take everything so personally and talk things over with those you love so that there are no major miscommunications or disagreements. Health continues to be good and romantic relationships may take a turn in an unexpected direction. You want to get into different philosophies or religions in life now and are taking classes and reading more than usual.  Romance gets better and better each day and you find your niche in creative and home projects and are very happy about your results in general.  Remember, perfection belongs only to God.  Do not be too hard on your children or yourself about any costume you may make or wear on Halloween.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 21

There is much energy around you to use in your career and life in general.  Use it wisely.  It seems as if you will make many decisions and do many things that you have been procrastinating on in the recent past.  You are getting stronger and more confident about many things – good for you.  You are ready to start a new beginning in life and will do whatever is necessary to make it the best decision you could possibly make.  Be sure you are not too giving, caring, loving, kind, generous, and honest when it comes to others.  Get things in writing to protect yourself and there should be no verbal agreements.  Love life is grand.  It’s almost as if you are in love with love again after a few compromises, but not to worry.  Your compromises will help solidify your future into one that you will be proud of.  Emotions are balanced and you seem to be making very good decisions about your future.  Be a lovely princess or a southern belle for Halloween.  Your costume should reflect your inner beauty.

SCORPIO – October 22 – November 20
Friends and family may need extra attention now although you have had it with everyone needing you all of the time.  When is it your turn to have someone help you?  (Not that you would ever admit to that!)   Many thoughts are coming into your head now.  You want to be more spiritual or learn more about metaphysics or philosophies.  Now is a time for self-cultivation and self-study so treasure each free moment you have and set up the books you want to read ahead of time so that you can figure out how much time you may need daily to get your reading goal finished.  Be consistent, persistent, and passionate about what you want to do this month so that you will make that vision happen.  If you are going out for Halloween or taking the children house to house, be sure that your kids are truly happy with your costume choice.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20
So much is going on in your life that you don’t have a minute to spare, but you keep on taking on more and more responsibilities and obligations that you barely have time to do anything for yourself.  Your own projects are never getting done and it is taking a toll on your mental health and you are exhausted!  Stop taking on more tasks for others when they rarely help you with anything.  Once you feel as if things are going in a more organized and controlled way, you will feel great.  Good luck is also coming in to help you with anything you need; be very clear about what you need from the universe.  You can get what you want at another time.  We know you will wear something totally outlandish for Halloween, but no matter what it is, have an outstanding time and lots of fun.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19
You are handling too much in your life and are becoming overwhelmed.  Your personality is positively changing and you are allowing others to get close to you.  Caps are becoming more tolerant and are open to different perspectives now – how refreshing!  You are becoming much more mature on many levels.  It seems as if you want your life to change in many ways and you are willing to do whatever needs to be done to get to the next level or the next project.  You are running on empty to quote a song, but when the dust settles, you will be in a much better state of mind and your physical and mental health will improve tremendously. Your thinking becomes crystal clear and you know what you want to do for the rest of your life (or have a pretty good idea).

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 17

Finances and family are the keys to your happiness this month. If you budget and use your money wisely, everything that you need will be available for you. You are also making financial plans for the future.  Family is only trying to help with suggestions and opinions, so hear them out and give them the benefit of the doubt.  Try new things with a creative flair.  You are ready to spread those artistic (or creative) wings and fly.  If work-related issues are causing you stress and making you feel unappreciated, then it may be time to look into other alternatives.  You need a supportive environment at work and home, so if you are not getting it, do whatever you need to do to have a more stress-free life.  Your health is important – protect it. If you need an annual physical, make sure you get it while you are thinking of it.  Keeping up with your health is very important especially with all the stress you are currently going through.  Even though you may have fun at Halloween giving out the candy and possibly dressing up the kids (or yourself), this may be a quieter holiday than usual so enjoy it!

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Family is a wonderful thing even though you may not agree with them from time to time, but they are always there for you and you should be there for them as well. Even if unusual circumstances surround family issues, you have to love them; they mean well. Try not to be too sensitive or emotional now because you have so much to look forward to.  Many things are behind the scenes especially with family, so don’t push the issue if someone does not want to tell you the whole truth.  You do not have to give in to everyone all of the time; make your opinion known and let friends and family know which compromises you are willing to make.  You are in control of your own life, so don’t let others talk you into anything you are not comfortable with at this time.  Can’t wait to see what type of costumes Pisceans will wear – you are so creative that I know it will be really bizarre or at the very least unique in many ways.  Happy candy.

ARIES – March 19 – April 18

Nothing stays the same forever. Your life really on the move now.  Things you thought were on a solid foundation may start to change.  You are not sure what your next steps should be.  However, are things changing because you weren’t deciding what path you were supposed to take?  If you are in a rut or are doing the same thing over and over again with little results, it’s no wonder that the universe is pushing you into a new direction.  Money should be budgeted and only spent on things you absolutely need now.  You feel a bit overwhelmed and confused about your direction in life and perhaps the universe; no more impulse buying.  The universe is doing you a favor by forcing you to choose and/or make some important decisions about your future. 

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19 

Even though times are extremely busy and confusing, there is a period where you will be lucky and things will expand beyond your dreams.  This is a great time to start new beginnings, perhaps look into buying a home instead of renting, get a better job rather than being upset all of the time at your current one, and transform all of your relationships dream relationships.  It seems you are thinking about changing jobs because of office politics or because you feel you deserve more money.  Either way, this would be the time to go for it.  You shine now so whatever you do is going to be golden, so why not take the risk?  Health issues seem to improve and doctor visits become less frequent.  Your life is going in a perfect direction; take hold of it and make many wonderful things happen. 

GEMINI – May 20 – June 19

Your emotions may be all over the place.  You are confused about certain situations so just know you can’t control everything.  You need to relax and take care of chores, projects, or work in a timely fashion, but don’t overexert yourself.  Make time for fun and stop worrying about things that you cannot control.  Deal with any issues from partnerships and/or paying off debts. Consider all aspects of your financial future. Make a strict budget and follow it! Try to pay off debts or at least pay things on time to avoid late charges.  If you are trying to save for certain items or at the very least want to accumulate some money in the bank for financial security, this is the time to be thrifty and conscious of your spending habits.

CANCER – June 20 – July 21

Getting out of the house seems important to you. Be cautious when making vacation plans. Staying closer to home may be a good choice; however, if you wish to venture further than that, be sure you take all necessary precautions.  Diversions may be to your local library for some free classes on subjects you’ve always wanted to study. This may also be a great time to take a metaphysical, philosophical, or esoteric course to find out more about the universe and the way it works through various modalities.  You are curious about so many things, but don’t seem to have the time to do much about your passion to learn. Taking online courses may be the way to go as you can study in the comfort of your own home.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

Career influences have many choices now.  There are many changes coming, some that you want, and others that may be thrust upon you; in the long run, whatever isn’t working will be pushed out of your life. Thinking things through clearly is important so that you don’t take any foolish risks that don’t serve you on any level. Creativity is at a high point so take advantage of this energy and passion.   Disagreements may cause some issues which will be covered in lies, hidden truths, and fantasy with a sprinkling of self-doubt and confusion.  Be sure whatever you get involved in is legal, thought through, and that you are not living in denial. 

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

So many wonderful options are given to you about your future career or work-related life.  You feel better about so many things in your life and really feel as if you are doing a good job with whatever you are trying to accomplish.  You feel more confident and stronger about the way you look.  You are getting to be a real beauty now so don’t cover up that wonderful person inside and let her out!  Your future looks bright and you have so many wonderful chances to make your life the way you truly want it, so go for it.  You are motivated and active now and want so many of your dreams and goals to come true and they will once you decide which of them you truly need in your life.  Remember, “wants” can always be obtained at another time in life. 

LIBRA – September 22 – October 21

Friends may become a full-time responsibility.  You take on too much and one of these days you will finally understand that others need to repay your energy with their own reciprocal energy. Helping others is exhausting, but there are your favorite charities that you will have time for. This is a time for you to handle your own responsibilities and to work hard towards your goals.  The hard work will bring many rewards in your business.  If you are thinking of starting a new business or expanding, now is an excellent time.  If you use the hard work ethic, things will really start to take off.  You also seem to be very sensitive and have too much on your mind.  Discuss issues with family or friends and lighten your burden.

SCORPIO – October 22 – November 20

You are ready for some changes in your life, but you have to find the areas of life you want to change and then do something about it.  It just won’t happen on its own. You may want to update your look by cutting or putting highlights in your hair, and perhaps maybe getting some new pieces for your wardrobe. You may be just a little harder to get along with than usual because you have so much on your mind that you are not thinking about winning a popularity contest.  You are dedicated and determined to get your projects done in a timely manner.  Obstacles may be thrown in your path, but you will quickly get over the hurdles and move onto the finish line.  

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

Money issues continue to on your mind so deal with personal finances as quickly as possible.  They keep you busy.  Deal with the issues that need your immediate attention and let the other issues stay on the back burner for now.  You have planned too many things for you to do and really don’t have the time to enjoy your life.  However, you feel that now that you have some free time, you should take care of all the obligations and responsibilities that you had intended to in the first place.  You may start to reconnect with friends and be a part of some of their projects as well.  Remember that your projects are the most important even though you wish to help others.  Time management is imperative now if you want to accomplish everything. Writing or artistic projects take the center stage. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Get everything in order once and for all.  Things lying around the house aren’t helping you to plan a bright new future.  Financial issues need to be addressed and if you decide that money has to be moved into something safer, or if you wish to save more, and spend less, etc., this is the time you need to do it.  Your dreams are being manifested easily so you may wish to be sure what you want in your life or you will start attracting things that may not be in your best interest.  Situations in love life and/or with children may need to be addressed.  Times and people are changing now so be aware of what is going on in your life.  Go along with the times or you may lose someone you love. 

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 17

Communication with those you love is important now.  Be sure you are calm when you discuss volatile matters since you can’t take back things that you say even if you apologize for them.  This is also a time when you are running on empty.  You do more and more and have less and less time to rest and take care of yourself.  What are you doing?  This is a time for you to enjoy your life and not stress over the small stuff so just let things go that don’t need to be in your life.  Creativity and artistic pursuits would be a good diversion for you so see which classes are available in a local night school or in your town’s library programs that may be of interest.  

PISCES – February 18 – March 18

Homelife starts to fall into place now.  Things that you feel you need in your life are a real possibility if you get up the initiative to follow through with plans and dreams.  Life is interesting and confusing at the same time.  Work and home life seem to be at odds, but with some clever thought, you can turn your life around to suit your needs.  Be open to other’s suggestions as you may be surprised that a friend or family member understands what’s going on in your life better than you do!  All in all, good luck is right around the corner and all you have to do is wait for it to kick in.

Leo is a semi-fruitful sign. – Polarity:  Masculine/Positive – Gemstone: Onyx

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

You are truly motivated this month to get rid of things that you feel are in the way or serving no purpose.  This is the time to stand up for whatever you feel is important and right.  You need to focus and prioritize your life to accomplish your goals. Romance may also be ahead so you can get rid of any negative partnerships.  Worrying too much is finally taking its toll on you, so be a bit more positive in your thoughts and goals and watch them quickly come to fruition. New ventures and opportunities seem likely, so go for them. If you want to keep in shape, stick to an exercise routine, even if it’s just walking the dog or jogging around the neighborhood on a daily basis, and perhaps, you’ll get the toned body you’ve wanted for such a long time.

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

Others may find you a bit unpredictable now, so make sure your plans and actions make sense and that you have a reason for them.  You have new insights into your home, home life, and how to make your money.  You may be living in a fantasy world and think that everything will turn out for the best so ask trusted family/friends for their unbiased perspective. You may not be thinking clearly and may make some uninformed decisions that may unexpectedly change your life. Personal partnerships may be tricky so if life seems confusing, deal with the issues immediately. You may feel as if the weight of the world is on your shoulders now so your decisions about your future will be very important.  If you act with love and patience anything can be resolved.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

What a great time for getting your plans in order for the future.  You have tons of enthusiasm and creativity so plan what you want to do. It seems as if you wish you can get away from it all, but you have many responsibilities to handle.  Travel may be on your mind, but finances or circumstances may not make it easy to getaway. Thinking too much may make you a bit depressed or upset, so only think of solutions to your issues and let other things go on their own path. Procrastination may also keep you from attaining your goals. Giving your work a creative edge would give you the cosmic kick in the pants you need to accomplish so much more than the mundane. 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

You have many plans, some of which have been put on hold because of the pandemic.  You want to look into new philosophies, art, writing, or whatever your preference to express yourself is at this time.  Career seems to be going in the right direction.  If it’s not, then this would be a good time to rethink your future in the business world.  Travel may have to wait a while.  Dealing with personal issues is important now so you can move on to a more positive future. Emotions are calming down and you are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. You are re-energized and motivated and feel a certain sense of accomplishment.  You feel as if you can take on the world.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

Your bold and passionate nature always has you surrounded by many friends and acquaintances.  You may want to start having serious conversations with family and friends to see “where they are” compared to your life.  You may be a bit more philosophical (or religious) and want to learn about these areas on a greater scale. Friends seem to be lucky for you now, so whatever you wish to do or try, they will be willing to go along with you.  You can’t accomplish everything by yourself and feel a sense of relief that things are finally making sense in your career and home life. Even though things may seem unusual, know that the energy is here to help you accomplish what is important to you.  You can do anything when you put your mind to it.  Take hold of this opportunity to make your life better.  There is a strong connection to family and friends that helps you with personal and spiritual growth. 

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

What a good time to express yourself. Maybe a makeover is in order or a new hairstyle.  You are bright, funny and have so much to give of yourself and you feel now is the time to share your interests and hobbies with others.  You would like to have in-depth conversations about so many things. Your mind is racing in many directions at once, but somehow you still seem to pull it all together when it counts. You have the stamina to accomplish much now so why not prioritize your “list” and start handling the things that are really important to you.  A change in a romantic partner is possible, or the dynamics of your relationship will dramatically change.  If you are not involved, this would be a good time to go out and have some fun.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

You may be thinking of your financial future and security.  This is one of the things that worry you from time to time.  If you buy what you need and not what you want at this time, it seems you would be fine.  Thinking in a defeatist or pessimistic manner may affect so many areas of your life: love, money, work, partnerships, and home life. You have many decisions to make but you keep changing your mind. It would be best to make a decision and stick with it.   This is not a good time for self-doubt or procrastination.  There is so much good in your life so take advantage of this positive energy around you.  You can still charm your way in or out of anything, so whatever you want, this is the time to go for it. 

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20

Homelife and family are important now.  Family relationships, especially with siblings, need to be addressed and dealt with. Short distance travel may be on your mind, but be sure it is safe to go to your destination.  Local getaways may be a better alternative to a regular vacation.  Finances seem to be of interest so take care of what needs to be handled. Good luck will follow you so share it with your romantic partner and family. Be sure to rest and take care of yourself.  It seems as if you are continually taking on too much responsibility. Circumstances seem to be blown out of proportion and you wonder how things got this way.  Being busy handling family issues has taken up a good deal of your time; however, this is a terrific time to try to figure out what you need to relax and be happy.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

This is an excellent time to paint your abode and perhaps to see what you really have in your home that you can switch to another room to make it look fresh. While doing that, you may also find that you can get rid of a lot of things you no longer need, like, or want. You may need to talk to family members about something that is bothering you. Keep the lines open for communication. There may be important issues that need to be dealt with regarding your significant other. Remember, being too giving, caring, loving, honest, and trustworthy is wonderful; however, not if others do not reciprocate your kindness and time. It would be in your best interest not to spend your money before you plan a realistic budget and know that you can actually afford what you want. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

This may be a confusing time when you need to organize your life, your job, and anything else you are working on.  Life happens and some plans may take longer than expected, or may not turn out the way you had wished. Homelife seems to oppose your goals, dreams, and aspirations, but you are always ready to handle what you must.  Make sure you are happy with the decisions that are being made for you. Your family’s goals and yours may not be similar which may cause some distress or worry.  Disagreements with family members make you wonder why you ever got involved with the current issues.  Irritations or frustrations keep you from having a peaceful month unless you quickly take control of the situations. Overthinking things will not change them.  Action is what is needed.

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 18

Attention needs to be given to your health and even perhaps your eating habits.  Have you been putting on weight even though you are dieting?  You may wish to see why the meals you make aren’t helping you shed the pounds.  Exercise is also important, even walking the dog can certainly get your body moving.  Creativity, children, and fun make this August a wonderful time for you.  Put on your thinking cap and organize the chores and projects that you want to get done especially the artistic and creative ones. Hard work pulls you in one direction, but your desire for a nice vacation or time away from family issues keeps tugging at your sleeve.  You seem to be getting tired of all the responsibilities around you, but you should limit the energy, time, advice, and opinions to those who request them.

PISCES – February 19 – March 17

Relationships and partnerships may be on rocky ground.  Know the facts before jumping to any conclusions and give the other person a chance to explain his/her side of the issue.  You are very attractive, fit, and ready to meet the world even though you may not think so.  Don’t go overboard and make yourself crazy when it comes to your health and eating habits. You are doing just fine. You want to bring some enthusiasm and enjoyment back into your life.  You may be a bit too sensitive now so don’t take things too personally.  Seeing things from a different perspective will help you understand others much more easily.  Your non-judgmental attitude seems to attract many new people into your life, so be prepared to be busy. you should be prepared to get rid of the old.

July 2020 Horoscopes

Important Dates:  July 4th, Independence Day.

The Declaration of Independence

We celebrate American Independence Day on the Fourth of July every year. We think of July 4, 1776, as a day that represents the Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation.  But July 4, 1776, wasn’t the day that the Continental Congress decided to declare independence (they did that on July 2, 1776).  It wasn’t the day we started the American Revolution either (that had happened back in April 1775).

And it wasn’t the day Thomas Jefferson wrote the first draft of the Declaration of Independence (that was in June 1776). Or the date on which the Declaration was delivered to Great Britain (that didn’t happen until November 1776). Or the date it was signed (that was August 2, 1776).

The Continental Congress approved the final wording of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. They’d been working on it for a couple of days after the draft was submitted on July 2nd and finally agreed on all of the edits and changes.

July 4, 1776, became the date that was included on the Declaration of Independence, and the fancy handwritten copy that was signed in August (the copy now displayed at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.) It’s also the date that was printed on the Dunlap Broadsides, the original printed copies of the Declaration that were circulated throughout the new nation. So, when people thought of the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776, was the date they remembered.

Sun goes into Leo on the 22nd.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Even though you have had plenty of time for yourself, you constantly wonder where the time goes.  You need to focus and prioritize your life to accomplish the goals you wish to achieve. Worrying too much is finally taking its toll on you, so be a bit more positive in your thoughts and goals and watch them quickly come to fruition.  New ventures or opportunities seem likely in the near future, so go for them. You may try to eat healthier foods; however, you fluctuate between staying on a diet and not. If you want that summer body, stick to an exercise routine, even if it’s just walking the dog or jogging around the neighborhood on a daily basis; moderate your desserts and you’ll start to feel better and get the toned body you’ve always wanted.

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

You may be living in a fantasy world and think that everything will turn out for the best so ask trusted family/friends for their unbiased perspective. Be positive that you are doing what is in everyone’s best interest. Personal partnerships may be tricky so if life seems confusing, deal with the issues immediately. You may feel as if the weight of the world is on your shoulders now so your decisions about your future will be very important.  If you act in a mature manner and are patient and tolerant of those you love, things will work out for the best. You seem emotionally drained and exhausted so give yourself some TLC. There are so many good times ahead of you once you make a definite decision about your path in life.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

It seems as if you wish you can get away from it all, but you have many responsibilities to handle. A diet would be appropriate since you did put on some pounds during the pandemic. Travel may be on your mind, but finances or circumstances may not make it easy to get away and you may not be secure enough about leaving your home now.  Scattered energy is also an issue. Taking a more mature view of your career and how you can work smarter – not harder – would be in your best interest.  Giving your work a creative edge would give you the cosmic kick in the pants you need to accomplish so much more.  You need a positive challenge and to set realistic goals.  Gems need to stop waiting for things to get better – you need to make them better by being pro-active and taking more positive control of your life.

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

Dealing with personal issues is important now so you can move on to a more positive future. Emotions are calming down and you are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Good luck seems to be following and helping you accomplish many things that are currently unresolved. You are re-energized and motivated and feel a certain sense of achievement.  You feel as if you can take on the world.  Your energy level is high and your friends and family keep you on your toes.  New and innovative ideas keep your life fun, focused, and a bit surprising. Take advantage of the optimistic future ahead of you thanks to this Cancerian eclipse on June 21st.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

You feel a sense of relief that things are finally making sense in your career and home life. Even though things may seem unusual, know that the energy is here to help you accomplish your dreams.  You can do anything when you put your mind to it. Handling your frustrations makes you feel overwhelmed, but all this hard work will pay off in the long run.  Take hold of this opportunity to make your life better.  There is a strong connection to family and friends that helps you with personal and spiritual growth.  You want to do so much for others, but it seems that this is a time for you.  Why not take advantage of this encouraging energy and follow through with many of the plans you had to put on hold for various reasons.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21.

Going out with friends will help you complete many of the tasks you have on your “to-do” list.  You will be networking and meeting many new friends and associates.  Your mind is racing in many directions at once, but somehow you still seem to pull it all together when it counts. You want to accomplish much now so why not prioritize your “list” and start handling the things that are really important to you.  A change in a romantic partner is possible, or the dynamics of your relationship will change.  If you are not involved, this would be a good time to put a relationship into your mind as someone should be coming soon.  If you are considering training or additional education, this would also be a good time to register for classes you may be taking in the fall.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

Confusing information makes you rethink things. It would be best to make a decision and stick with it.  Disagreements may spring out of nowhere if you don’t think before speaking.  Your natural charm gets you out of a lot of uncomfortable circumstances; however, your energy seems somewhat stifled.  Homelife and family have the potential to be calmer and bring you much more joy than in the past recent months.  Although your home life is not the norm, it is exciting and fun when everything is running smoothly.  A new way of doing things comes from your creativity and ingenuity.  There will be much more cooperation and stimulation that will help you feel refreshed and convinced that all you have sacrificed for your family was well worth it.

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20

Handle your own goals now.  Good luck will follow you so share it with your romantic partner and family. Be sure to rest and take care of yourself.  It seems as if you are continually taking on too much responsibility. Circumstances seem to be blown out of proportion and you wonder how things got this way.  Why not delegate or hire help to assist you with your projects? You have been very busy handling family issues that you rarely had time for yourself, but now you are trying to figure out how to bring a little more relaxation into your life. If you have the time, a mini-vacation would be a wonderful diversion. Activity keeps you hopping, but soon things will clear up and you will be doing things you want to do and not things you have to do.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

There may be important issues that need to be dealt with regarding your significant other.  If you pretend these issues away, they will come back to haunt you. Remember, being too giving, caring, loving, honest, and trustworthy is wonderful; however, not if others do not reciprocate your kind gestures.  Do not let others take advantage of your good nature. You should not continue to be the giver in all things and may need to learn how to receive for a change. Dealing with money issues and family seems to keep you busy.  It would be in your best interest not to spend your money before you plan a realistic budget and know that you can actually afford what you want.  Changes in career would be excellent for you. Perhaps a home-based small business would help you express your creativity and resourcefulness.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Your family’s goals and yours may not be similar which may cause you some conflict. Disagreements with family members make you wonder why you ever got involved with the current issues.  Irritations or frustrations keep you from having a peaceful month unless you quickly take control of the situations. You should meditate or find some quiet time around your busy schedule.  Overthinking things will not change them.  Positive attention could be given to your romantic partner to make things between you a little more harmonious.  Someone feels taken for granted or unappreciated, so this would be a good time to do something extra special for your partner. Learn the meaning of the word “compromise.”

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 18

Finding creative ways of making your home life work better will be in everyone’s best interest.  Hard work pulls you in one direction, but your desire for a nice vacation or time away from family issues keeps tugging at your sleeve.  You seem to be getting tired of all the responsibilities around you, but you will continue to give your energy, time, advice, and opinions to those who request them. Don’t let things get blown out of proportion, especially the misunderstandings.  Please don’t take things so personally, as you seem so sensitive now that everything upsets you.  Set family rules and then follow them.  Take care of health issues before they turn into something serious.

PISCES – February 19 – March 17

You want to bring some enthusiasm and enjoyment back into your life.  You may be a bit too sensitive now so don’t take things too personally. Seeing things from a different perspective will get you noticed.  Your non-judgmental attitude seems to attract many new people into your life, so be prepared to be busy. Change is in the air whether it’s in romance or with friends.  New people are coming into your life and you should be prepared to get rid of the old.  Long-distance travel, higher education or classes, workshops, lectures, or training seem probable so decide which of these fun things you would like to undertake and sign up for them before you change your mind.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

This is a time of activity, fun, and excitement, even if it may still be at home.  You will do many of the things that you haven’t had time to do before. Women in your life will be your constant companions and you will reconnect with those who have become distant throughout the years.  You will also make a radical change in your appearance, perhaps your hair color, makeup, clothes, and you will look fabulous.  You will also have some issues with your romantic partner which can be easily worked out if you talk things through.  Feeling a bit restricted, you may rebel or try to at least get your point of view across.  Don’t do anything silly because there is a lot of love around you; maybe better communication would be a good start.

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

Money is your main focus now as you try to get on track with your finances or save for that large purchase that you have been hoping for or just catching up with the bills.  Energetic energy comes into your home and you will have much fun redecorating, painting, fixing up, and adding new accessories to your home.  It will give you such a mental lift to see things clean and new.  Children and home life, in general, will go in a much better direction if you are not too stubborn to change a few of your ways. Just try to go with the flow. Seeing someone else’s point of view is very important to help you understand where they are coming from.  Be patient at work.  Things will work out if you give them a chance.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

You may want to be cognizant of your words.  Do not let your mouth run wild before your brain kicks in.  Disagreements, short distance travel, and communication can be tricky, so be sure you plan ahead; try to be much more cautious about driving or flying.  Do not take any risks because you will be accident-prone if you are not paying attention to the details.  Also, this is a good time to see the big picture and let the petty issues and concerns be acknowledged and dealt with when you have the time.  Siblings and neighbors can be a joy to you. Have frequent phone calls, Skype, or Zoom reunions. You may meet new people online or in a chat room.  Don’t trust anyone until you are 100% sure about their character.

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

Relationships with your mother and/or women in your life will improve.  You have a better connection and understanding of the things that went on when you were young.  Homelife is getting easier, better, and much more positive so enjoy life and get out and do the things you’ve wanted to do.  Tending your garden or practicing your hobbies will be a lovely way to escape from life’s pressures while keeping yourself entertained.  You will always feel that something is holding you back from accomplishing your goals, but in reality, your procrastination and lack of making positive decisions will keep you from getting the happiness you deserve.   Everyone is on your side, so don’t let them down – make a decision and move forward.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

It’s time to balance your life with chores, projects, work (if you are lucky enough to work from home) with some meditation or relaxation. Your enthusiasm for a job well done will win you the admiration and approval of those around you.  Be sure to balance home life and your career as things seem to be a bit one-sided at the moment.  A lot of activity and change is around you, so go for it.  If it’s something you would like to do or try, do it now before you change your mind.  Your emotions seem to be all over the place.  Set boundaries and limitations so that others don’t continue to drain your energy and generous nature.  Hard work and responsibility will keep you structured and organized which will help you accomplish many things.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21.

This is a good month to start a diet, become a vegetarian, or improve your eating habits.  A bit of exercise will take you a long way to reaching your weight goal.  Take long walks, park far away from the store (so you can walk a little bit more) or jog with friends or better yet, take the dogs out for a daily walk.  Communicate with your personal or business partner – something has to change, but you’re not quite sure what it is. You may feel somewhat bored or unappreciated, but things are looking up for a sunny relationship by the end of the year.  Always ask questions until you are satisfied with the answers.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

Stop being so sensitive and please make a decision that makes sense for you so you can move on in a very positive direction. Many are thinking of changing personal or business partnerships; you may be as well. Things seem out of control and crazy, emotional, and not the same.  Communicate with one another.  You need some time to think about the future with positive outcomes and positive energy all around you.  You may be upset or emotional throughout the month, but the fact is you know what needs to be done.  Changes are coming into your life so be prepared to go with the flow.  Remember, once you make a decision, stay strong, and do not change it.  If you do, it will be the wrong decision.

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20

You may feel as if a big weight is on your shoulders.  Life is holding you back from attending to your obligations and responsibilities that you don’t even know where to start.  Homelife is interesting – some are moving, others are changing their homes and the bad blood that has kept you away from relatives in the past is being resolved.  Reach out to your family and close friends any time you wish to feel safe, secure, stable, and organized.  Children and love life seem very positive around you.  You are being given many opportunities that you must grab or they will pass you by.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

There could be a change in your job or responsibilities, in your appearance, in a lifestyle, or just feeling emotionally free!  Travel plans may be coming together slowly but surely.  However, don’t let unsettling or strange coincidences keep you from taking that vacation that you’ve always wanted, especially when it is safe in the world to do so.  If you can’t afford that big vacation, take smaller ones that are closer to home.  You’ll still have the same fun.  You are starting to believe in different ways, rituals, philosophies, and/or religions.  You may sign up for several computer classes, lectures, or training in some new area of interest and you will love it.  New changes are always exciting and these will definitely be fun, exhilarating, and needed.  Not bad going to a lecture in your PJs!

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Things in your life that are no longer needed will start being regenerated, transformed, and improved upon.  Career is very important now, so be sure that you work diligently and confidently.  If you have lost your employment, this would be a good time to start looking for another position.  Emotionally, you are ready for a change although you are not quite sure how to do it.  Creativity, artistic ability or new hobby will be a great pastime to take your mind off of your problems, worries, fears and doubts.  Find some joy in your life.  You take things too seriously and it’s time to chill a little bit.  Even if things do get blown out of proportion, your cool head will keep things on an even keel.  Enjoy the warm weather.

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 18

Be aware of those around you.  Not everyone is as honest and helpful as you and if you are not prepared for some sneaky tactics, you may feel betrayed or let down.  Depending upon if we are still stuck at home because of Corvid-19 in June, this would be a great time to start dating (if you are single) or at least look at personal sites.  It can’t hurt.  Or this would be a good time to rekindle your romance by having date nights (without the kids). You would be surprised at how fast you could remember all the good times.  Knowing the love, you have for each other is a stunning thing, so nurture it and let it take flight!  Being grateful for all of your blessings now will bring bigger and better opportunities and positive results in the future.

PISCES – February 19 – March 17

So many things are going on behind the scenes so just ask questions to find out the truth.  Do not take anything for granted.  Studying spirituality, metaphysics. meditations or esoteric teachings will be positive steps forward on your spiritual journey.  If you have any need for hospital tests or procedures, this indicated that the visit will be short and you will be out of there as soon as possible.  Your mind is playing your past over and over again and it could be making you feel maudlin or stressed.  Look towards the future with confidence and passion since there is so much wonderful energy out there for you, and once you avail yourself to it, anything is possible.

______________________________________________________________________________

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Making the best out of negative situations is one of the things you do best.  Time to look at your career and if it’s in your best interest to continue on that path.  Trying to deal with so many obligations and responsibilities sometimes wear you out.  You may wish to rest more and take better care of yourself. Perhaps it is time you learned that you can only control some of the things some of the time. If you can’t change an outcome, it may be best to just go with the flow.  Be open to help from your family and friends. Be willing to make amends, compromise and enjoy your family. Wills, living wills and insurance policies should be updated.  Once you feel as if everything is under control, you will be able to relax and take a deep breath.

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

Romance is in the air and life seems to be getting so much better for you although unpredictable at times. If travel is permitted, a short getaway would do wonders for your total health. Learning from so many sources is also a fruitful endeavor.  Higher education, lectures, seminars, workshops, or training in a new area (or to assist you in reaching the next step in your career) is importantFocus on what you would like to start improving in your life and take a small step towards your goal each day.  Your plans are within reach.  A few karmic lessons may hit you over the head now, but once you recognize that you’ve been dealing with similar situations your whole life that you may finally find the strength to positively deal with and be done with them.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

You have too many projects that need to be finished. Prioritize.  Get friends or family to help you deal with some of your issues or burdens.  You have always been there for them and they would relish a chance to pay back all of your kindness towards them. Good luck is following you around now, so if you reach for your dreams and aspirations, you will find that opportunities abound.  Love life improves tremendously as you meet that new special someone in your life.  Make room for him or her because this one is a keeper.  Think before making important decisions.  Take as long as you need to decide, but once you make a decision, do not change your mind or it will be wrong. 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

You have a true interest to reconnect with friends and family after being cooped up for too long.  You may be somewhat emotional and may put yourself in a much more stable, centered and grounded environment.  Logic will win the day as you figure things out in their own time. Don’t rush to get things done; if you are more persistent and tolerant of your actions, you will be ready to face any new challenges that seem to be coming your way.  You feel good about yourself and your self-esteem is higher than usual.  Artistic pursuits will give you a creative and relaxing outlet this spring.  Also, be wary of people who always need your help.  If you are not getting reciprocal energy for all of your good deeds, it may be time to break the tie with those taking advantage of you.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

Very will be very introspective this month thinking about where your life is and where it is headed.  Are you with the person you love and is your career fulfilling? A spiritual direction will help you sort out any issues or problems you may be facing and you will be more apt to resolve them.  If family, especially siblings, give you trouble, it’s time to set the record straight on so many things.  You know how to handle yourself, especially where the family is concerned, so don’t be afraid to speak up.  As long as you talk with love in your heart, you can’t go wrong.  Secrets won’t last forever, so be sure to release others’ secrets from your being and give them to the universe to hold and deal with.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

You will shine this month, especially if you attend to your appearance in many ways, such as, losing weight, making yourself gorgeous for the spring perhaps by a makeover of some sort (hairstyle, color, new clothes?) and eating healthily helps you feel better right off the bat. You seem to be moving in so many directions.  Some plans will fall through and others will change from what you thought they would be.  It is an interesting month for you because even though you may not be in control of your life at the moment, you will understand that some things had to happen to get you back onto the right path.  Career issues need to be dealt with quickly so that you can get back to work with a clear head and a joyful heart.  Things may be moving faster than you had hoped, but if you go with the flow, you will see that they are proceeding at the exact speed necessary for your best interest.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

It seems that finances you may wish to look into your finances and get them straightened out.  Perhaps you should buy only what you need for now until you remedy any unhealthy spending habits.  Things will certainly work out best for you now since you have so much going for you.  Looking for new beginnings or new people in your life will make you happy, so go for it.  Try new things, take a class or two and do something unexpected.  Playing it safe is getting too boring for you, but do not take foolish risks.  Activity is crazy now. You have too much to do and not enough hours in the day to do everything you wish.

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20

The nice weather gets everyone thinking about planting a vegetable and flower garden. Family issues seem non-existent and many quarrels are resolved or dealt with in a very positive way.  Personal or business partnerships may be very sensitive so be sure you actually know the whole story before reacting to something that may be false.  Some are putting their homes on the market while others are fixing up and redecorating their current dwellings.  Whichever one you are doing, make sure you redecorate to celebrate the wonderful personality and soul you have.  Perform a space clearing with white sage to get rid of any lingering negativity that may be stuck in your space.  People will always seek your guidance; boundaries are now required.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

Homelife and the home are two very important things to give your attention to. It may be somewhat disorganized or you may be unprepared for your life to change for the better.  Being overwhelmed with financial worries, it seems that things take care of themselves for a change of pace.  Partnerships may be tricky since you need to communicate and not just run away when life gets hard.  Talking does wonders to help your partner or family understand your point of view and it is also good for the soul to learn a little bit more about the one you love.  Don’t be afraid to show how you truly feel about someone.  It will only get better if you take the first step.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Have a bit of fun, you deserve it.  Children are important now, so if there is anything that you need to fix, correct, change or remedy, this is the time to do it for everyone’s best interest.  So many new beginnings in relationships can make a big difference in how you feel about your significant others.  Show affection.  Do something different.  Have a weekly date night to rekindle your romance.  Creativity is also another outlet that will make you feel useful and special.  You are very talented in many areas but are so wrapped up in logic that many do not see that side of you.  Be careful about speaking without thinking as you will hurt some feelings and find it very hard to take back harsh words.

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 18

Many seem to be going through some ill health.  Confusion about conditions may keep a solution at bay.  You tend to be very creative when it comes to saving for something you need and you will continue to be a prudent saver and spender. You have so many ideas of home redecorating, repainting and perhaps even getting some new furniture.  You seem to be exhausted so give yourself enough time to recuperate. A medical procedure or medication may be necessary if you push yourself any harder.  You are open to suggestions for work, leisure activities, and even some baking pointers, but when it comes to listening to others about how to take better care of yourself, it seems to fall on deaf ears.  Treat yourself as well as you treat others and you will have a spectacular month.

PISCES – February 19 – March 17

Concentrate on business and personal partners.  Both seem to need either guidance.  Many positive changes are coming for you if you take the step to go in a particular direction. You will have many changes this month; some of these changes may be a pleasant surprise. Creative projects will help you calm down and put your life in perspective.  You may be prone to crying or feeling glum because you are so super-sensitive now.  Career may also need some fine-tuning since it seems as if a lot is going on and you must cope with the situations.  Meditation or relaxation techniques should help you release some of the pressure you feel around you.  Definite decisions will help you make sense of your future.  Let others help you in any way you need.  They want to help you after you’ve always been there for them.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18 

There is a lot of activity in your career. You may be thinking of changing professions and going in another direction.  Home-based business, self-employed, consultant work all come to mind.  It seems you just feel as if this is a good time to make the change since you have been dissatisfied for some time now.  Luck will be coming to you anytime you make a change this month since Jupiter (the best luck planet) is protecting you.  You feel exhausted, tired and unappreciated, not only at work but in other areas of life as well.  You need to figure out what best suits your life at this time and start going in that new direction one day at a time.  Change is always difficult and filled with anxieties, but once you make your mind up about in which direction you wish to go, you will feel certain that you have waited too long to go onto your new path.

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

Friends are of importance to you and it seems as if you will learn many karmic lessons from them.  The trick is to learn the lessons so that they will no longer be repeated.  You feel much more positive about your relationships, whether romantic or not, and are making decisions about them more confidently.  It is a great time to make a change in your appearance that you have been considering for a while now.  Maybe cutting or growing your hair, perhaps a different style or color.  Get a fresh and clean new makeover or get some new clothes that you have been tempted to purchase in the past.  You do not have to go overboard, and you can, of course, wait for sales, but you feel as if you need a brand-new look to go with your new attitudes and thoughts.  You seem to be more family-oriented now and may even want to have a special birthday celebration with family and friends or you may wish to celebrate a special occasion.  Thoughts of responsibilities and obligations make you work hard so that you can help out those who need it. 

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

It seems all of your luck is coming from unusual or mysterious sources.  It may be from getting back into your spiritual, esoteric or metaphysical studies or practices; it may also be from others who want to repay you for all the good you have done for them (and of course, if you haven’t done any good for anyone, you will be repaid for that as well!).  It is very important to communicate well with loved ones and friends.  You may lose some friendships if you are not vigilant.  You may wish to start a new business or expand on your current one.  You are looking at life from a different perspective with fresh, new eyes and want more than you have had before.  You are being extremely active and trying to finish a million projects at once.  You may also be interested in getting into a romantic relationship if you are not already involved. If you are, you may need to light a small flame of excitement or adventure to get the relationship going in the right direction.  Fantasy or illusion/delusion can only make you change direction without cause.  Be realistic in all decisions. Creativity and artistic ability will help you relax, be able to make you think more clearly and be more productive.

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

On the whole, this month will be good for you.  It will give you a cosmic kick in the butt and get you going in the direction you should have been going a long time ago.  You will be more apt to change and listen to those who want the best for you.  Your career will be interesting since you are comfortable at your place of employment, but know that there must be something else better than what you already have. Relationships may be confusing.  Communication, couples’ counseling, and even trying to figure out if you really want to stay in that relationship with your partner will continue to be some of the thoughts on your mind. Study, formal education or go to lectures, seminars, workshops, and training which will be good to keep your mind focused on important areas of life.  Spirituality and religion will also keep you focused and grounded.  If life is trying to push you off of your path, perhaps looking at in which direction you will be heading is very important.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

Finances seem to improve.  Try to sell unneeded or unwanted items on eBay or Craigslist or just keep your bits and pieces for a spring garage sale.  You can give away anything that you wish to friends, family or charities, but some things may be worth much more to you and the money is needed at this time to pay off debts or get your finances under control.  You too may be tired of the same old rat race and want to do something completely different, but either you are unsure of what to do, or you are in the planning stages of seeing what makes sense for you.  Being active and ready to change once the opportunity represents itself, you are full of hope and promise for a brand-new future which will bring new possibilities to your lifestyle.  Jupiter is following you around, getting ready to give you a cosmic boost whenever you need it.  Your confidence is high and emotionally, you are on the top of your game; however, deciding when and if you want to go in a new direction is the key.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21
Family issues can be confusing and upsetting at times, but only if you let them get to you.  If you are an observer instead of a participant in all of the chaos and craziness, then you will not be as easily affected.  There is much positive energy and opportunities coming to you, but you must be strong enough to take them or they will pass you by.  Be aware of your comments to others as you may say things without thinking and cause a real problem – especially at work.  You must also live in the now and not fantasize about the future, whether it will be much more positive or different.  Only you can make that happen, so if you are not happy with an area or areas of your life, then change them.  Only you can do this!  Creativity, whether it is in jewelry making, art, writing, singing, dancing or acting, seems to be what you must do to keep yourself level headed, grounded and secure.  You are so good in so many creative areas, but it seems as if time is running away from you and you are not working to your potential. 

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

Homelife and career seem to be at odds with each other or you just don’t have time for either of them.  You are too scattered and exhausted.  You seem to be on a merry-go-round and you just never get the chance to get off.  Complete projects at home and at your place of employment.  Even if you do a little bit in each area every day, you will finish up in no time at all.  Being disappointed about a few areas of life now, you may wish to get up the courage you need to again make the appropriate changes, take that risk and move forward.  Sometimes you have to leave people behind so you can open up the path before you where you will meet others who will help you on your journey forward.  This is a great time to start accepting help from others.  You must limit your gestures of always being there for everyone because many times, your help goes unappreciated or it is just expected.  Pick and choose who gets your help so that the ones who receive it will be grateful for your assistance.

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20
It is a time where you will have to determine which areas of life are worth your time and effort.  You may have to compromise, set more boundaries and limitations from others and handle the things that have been giving you the most trouble.  You are over-worked and have a great deal on your mind.  How will you get it all done?  Be kind to yourself and realize that everything takes time.  Deal with one issue at a time and then the positive energy will be attracted to you much more easily and life will move along more smoothly.  Leaving many projects open-ended will keep you from gaining the peace of mind that you seek. Use your creative mind to figure out ways of completing tasks and projects with friends and family.  You’ve always helped them and now it is appropriate that you ask for assistance in your hour of need.  Your family and friends will be happy to help you, especially since it will be a small thank you for all you’ve done for them.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

If things are blown out of proportion, do not get upset, just know that you have to calm down and understand what was actually being said or done. This is another example of not thinking before you speak. Your emotions seem to be taking a ride on a roller coaster these days and if someone says the wrong thing, watch out!  You go on the warpath.  However, there is so much going on in your life which is positive and going in the right direction.  You have a real sense of self-worth, self-confidence, and self-esteem.  You are doing what you want to be doing and enjoying life to its fullest.  You are reconnecting with friends and making sure that you have plenty of time to spend with loved ones as well.  Traveling or getting out of a rut is your top priority.  Women in your life will bring you the greatest joy and yet may also bring you some heartache, so be very careful as to which energy you attract and accept.  Money continues to be spent freely, so budgeting a little more would ensure that you have what you need to survive and live comfortably.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Health issues may be of concern.  If you are due for a health care checkup, do not procrastinate any longer.  Be sure to get whatever tests or meds you may need to be healthy and fit.  A new diet or exercise is also important.  If you are trying to lose weight, this would be the time to make a diet plan for yourself so that you can lose weight on a consistent basis without starving yourself.  Discussing important issues with loved ones will be vital to settling differences or hurt feelings.  You also may be thinking too much and may have some sleepless nights.  Career issues may be on your mind, but until you are certain in which direction you wish to go, do not take any chances with your future.  If you are looking for another job, be sure you have secured a job elsewhere before you give notice.  Be very cautious and do not take any chances so that you will be safe and accident-free.

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 18

Change is all around you, but which changes do you want to bring into your life?  You seem to need a rest from your hectic job and you do need some downtime.  Otherwise, you tend to be everyone else’s therapist and don’t really discuss your issues with anyone.  At some point, you should discuss your concerns and issues with those closest to you. It is a fact that Aquarians don’t like to trouble others with their problems, but you’ve helped so many people…isn’t it time that they help you back for all you’ve done for them?  New beginnings and directions seem to be coming your way and the only question is, “Will you take them?”  This is a good time to look over your important papers including your will and living will to make sure that everything is exactly the way you would like it.  Being conscious of your budget is a good thing.  Don’t keep it wound up so tightly that you don’t have any money for any type of entertainment or fun.

PISCES – February 19 – March 17

So many adventures and so little time.  You have so much to do and you don’t seem to have the time to do them in.  Budgeting your time better would be a great thing for you to achieve your goals and dreams.  You can always ask others to help you to get to your goals in a timelier manner. You are thinking about so many things simultaneously that it is overwhelming.  Boil down your goals to just a few things, get them done and then you can be on to your next list of things to do.  Education or training seems important now, so don’t put it off if you know what you want to do.  Don’t let confusion or fear keep you from accomplishing everything that you want for your family and yourself.  This is a great time to freshen up your style with new makeup or innovative clothes.  Creativity is the key to unleashing your talents.  If this type of job doesn’t bring in the money, you can always do them part-time and keep your career which is allowing you to pay the bills.

March 2020 Horoscopes

Important Dates: March 8th, International Women’s Day and Daylight Savings Time begins, the 10th, Purim. And the 17th, St. Patrick’s Day.

Mars Ruler of Aries

Mars is the ancient God of War, who was also known as Aries.  This planet is yang in nature and it is the complement of Venus.  It is of masculine/positive polarity and has an outgoing nature.  Mars is a planet of energy, desire, and action.  It represents war or struggles within you or within a relationship.  This planet is closely associated with our physical energy and rules our animal essence. Some descriptive words of Mars’ energy are initiative, assertiveness, desire, aggressiveness, executive ability, impulsiveness, resistance, courage, adventurousness, rashness, (which may sometimes lead to accidents) and aggressive sexual love.

The symbol of Mars is essentially an inverted symbol for Venus (love, peace, and harmony).  It represents the cross of materiality with focused energy overriding the circle of spirit.

General Overview of Month:  March will have more energy than the two preceding months.  There will be much activity, learning, getting ahead in business and interesting partnerships.  There will also be a warm feeling of home, family and those close to you.  Good luck starts on the 10th when Mercury goes Direct and the rest of the month is retrograde free!  We finally get a break.

ARIES – March 21 – April 19 ruled by Mars

Friendships, clubs, groups, associations or classes seem to give you the comfort you are looking for through meeting new people and finding exciting ways to express yourself.  You may be surprised by a few friendships ending and luckily new ones are starting as well.  You would welcome group projects. Career and friends are your priorities.  Being sure that you use a more compassionate tone of voice with those you are in contact with will go a long way in getting what you want.  Try to be a better listener so you can understand what the other person is really feeling or wanting. Your interest in getting outside and doing something fun after being thwarted by the winter weather is becoming a priority.  It’s almost as if you want to go out with friends and groups that you haven’t had time for in the past. You also would mind meeting some new friends to spice up the pot! There also seems to be many frustrations and limitations in home life that you wish to handle and change.  Relationships are going in a different direction.  You want to find people who can reciprocate your generosity and you want to start receiving instead of always being the giver.  Arians will learn many karmic lessons along the way, but once you realize that the only thing constant in life is change – you will be in a different mindset to attract new opportunities and embrace the fun in life.

TAURUS – April 20 – May 20 ruled by Venus

You are extremely sensitive now, so don’t take life too seriously, especially if others say something that may seem like an attack on your character or integrity.  It may have just been your perception.  Many issues are on your mind and you wish you could just make one good decision that will plan the rest of your life.  Family matters may escalate if you tell them things they don’t really want to know.  Be sure that everyone is on a “need to know” basis you’re your life will go much more smoothly. Your career seems to be doing very well with all of the changes going on around you.  You have seen to shine now, so keep doing whatever you are doing.  Be aware of someone who does not have your best interest at heart.  Stop any possible gossip immediately so it does not linger around the office. Dealing with many issues now keeps your mind racing in many directions. You may experience some insomnia, not because you are ill, but that left brain of yours thinks of too many scenarios and too many “what ifs.” You need to slow down, make a list and follow it.  You are too scattered at the present time.  Money seems to be an issue so careful budgeting makes sense now because it seems as if there will be many unusual or unexpected expenses in the weeks ahead.

GEMINI – May 21 – June 20 ruled by Mercury

What a great time to rediscover some of the old beliefs you may have forgotten or just didn’t have time for any longer.  Spirituality is your goal now to keep yourself centered and focused on the important things in your life.  This should be a very spiritual cycle for all Gems who have been having a difficult time in many areas.  Learn a new modality or philosophy.  Expand all of your horizons.  You have everything to gain now so be persistent and make a plan to get what you need and want in your life. You are like a sponge ready for all the information you can absorb.  Being open to everything will bring many new educational and personal opportunities. The eclipses have not been as positive as you would have liked so this is more as a time for planning, finishing up projects and chores, organizing, doing foundation work, changes in thinking processes and attracting new, positive energy. This is a time to study metaphysics and parapsychology as well as taking many new classes for recreation or additional formal education for employment purposes.  Creativity is your way out of this crazy energy.  Make something beautiful; spend time writing your life story, a blog or add something clever on to your Facebook page for all to share.  Do artwork or photography.  Get out and be creative and flexible and by doing that, you will start to change the vibrations around you to a more positive and loving nature.

CANCER – June 21 – July 22 ruled by the Moon

There may be a lot of changes going on in your home.  You want to make things very cozy and want to eliminate any clutter that has accumulated over the winter months.  This is an outstanding time for Cancerians to make some positive moves whether it is in business or school.  Seriously look at whatever it is that you were planning to do in the next few months.  You may want to shorten your timeframe if it seems right. What a great time for many opportunities to be presented to you and the good news is, no matter which opportunity you grab, it will be the right one for you.  Adversely, if you don’t grab onto opportunities, they will pass you by and never return.  You are thinking in a more fanciful way and can talk your way in and out of any situation, but don’t make this a habit.  Cancerians have luck on their side, but you are also super sensitive now.  Don’t take everything too personally; not everyone is out to get you.  Be prepared for partnership issues if your stubborn side rears its ugly head.  You are too good to let other people suffer for your insensitivity to their needs so be compassionate and loving when it is appropriate.  Love issues may be tricky now so just be a good listener and think about your responses before making it worse by being sarcastic or unsympathetic.

LEO – July 23 – August 22 ruled by the Sun

Communication is the key this month.  It’s all about your self-expression and thought processes.  This may also be a time in which you would like to take a few day trips or weekend getaways.  Be sure to include those you love in discussions about your plans and your thoughts.  There seem to be a few issues that are bothering you now.  Communication with family is the most important one.  Make sure they understand what you are saying and don’t assume that everyone is on the same page. Then there is balancing your budget and checkbook.  This is a great time to buy what you need and not what you want.  You may also want to sell things that are no longer needed on eBay or Craigslist, etc., to get some of the money you need to pay off debt or buy what you currently need.  A garage sale would also be a good idea when the weather gets warmer in the spring.  Also, you can donate items to a charity and get a tax receipt without all of the headaches of setting up and putting away your items from a garage sale.  Health improves as you take care of any medical issues with doctor visits, a better diet, and an exercise program.  People are interfering with your goals so some slight agitations occur.  Take a yoga class, go to a spa, relax and chill out a little.  As usual, you take things much too seriously and you need to just “let it go.”  In the scheme of things, is anything that important if it gets you ill?

VIRGO – August 23 – September 22 ruled by Mercury

It seems you are very interested in privacy, home comfort, and security now.  Your home is becoming a sacred space where you feel the troubles of the day just melt away.  Homelife has its issues, but all in all, things are going in a much better direction.  Good luck in the home is following you around.  Is it that you really need a romantic partner in your life? Partnerships seem to change, so if you are in a bad one, the energy is helping you make those tough decisions.  If you are not in one, you may find yourself dating more than usual and actually meet someone of substance that can be long term.  Do you want a change of residence or do you want to redecorate?  There is a lot going on in your life and you really need to be more determined and adamant than usual.  You need to follow your lists (and not just make them).  You should also stop being so easily upset and just see things with your stereotypical Virgo logic.  Once you handle things in this extremely detailed and focused way, things will get much easier.  Children and home life may not help you get what you need out of life at the moment, but there is a lot of good intention.  You are needed and loved, so if you can’t do everything that you want to do at this time, give it a longer time frame for your dreams and goals to come to fruition.

LIBRA – September 23 – October 22 ruled by Venus

Playful tendencies are shown more than usual.  You use talents you never thought you had and try many new things.  After not understanding why the last two years have really been difficult in many areas of life, you now are feeling the weight being lifted off of your shoulders.  The obstacles, concerns, issues, limitations, and responsibilities that you have carried alone for some time will now be shared with other family members or friends, or you will finally figure out a logical solution to your issues.  The procrastination in deciding your future has to stop.  You need to be more decisive in choosing the life path that is good for you.  You may feel somewhat depressed or unhappy from time to time until you adjust to the fact that this is a transitory period going from a negative to positive time and it may take a little while to adjust emotionally.  It will be gone before you know it, so just let it go.  You can be extremely sensitive now so try to toughen up and understand that most people don’t mean to be as sarcastic and offensive as they are, but before they know it, stupid things come out of their mouths.  Accept apologies so your life will be less traumatic. Partnerships can be disheartening, but you can listen to your partner’s concerns and try to be more patient and all will be fine.  Both of you need to work on your relationship.

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21 ruled by Pluto

This month is all about wellness and nutrition.  It also highlights assistance you may give to others; however, make sure you have healthy boundaries or you will be overwhelmed with all the requests that are made of you. Love life is interesting now and things seem to be changing in a very positive direction.  You can get closer to the one you love and your whole relationship can go to a new level if you want it to. Your intimate relationship is really getting a blast of positive energy, so be sure you accept any overtures of romance and love from your partner.  You can be more romantic as well.  Both parties have to agree on what they really want and then work towards whichever changes you want to bring into the relationship.  Children can be involved in helping you make a good life for yourself so give them a chance to see what they have in store for you.  Family issues need to be taken care of and working together with your partner would be a blessing. Your ambition and drive make you a formidable challenge this month. You know what you want and you are trying to go after it.  Career is stable so whatever you do for a living will continue to bring in a salary and keep your finances balanced as long as you don’t go overboard on impulse buying.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 21 ruled Jupiter

Nutrition, diets, letting go of a few unwanted pounds seem to be on your mind.  Work-life is important now so be sure to give it your all.  This could be a time for promotions or getting more responsibilities for more money.  Taking care of your health is very important. Have you been trying to lose weight and exercise?  There is absolutely no energy in New Year to start your life over (unless January 1 is your birthday), so visualize and re-examine what you would like to bring into your life to make it easier than it has been. Your vitality is down and it may just be that you are trying to accomplish too much and not giving yourself enough rest and time to unwind. You may even be thinking in some negative terms and thinking that things just will not turn around for you, but they will.  Just give the universe a little time to process your requests and get ready to be happy and healthy in no time at all. You may be anxious about career issues so just try to do your job and be a bit more flexible when it comes to your work.  Of course, money needs to be looked into and you need to find ways of tightening your belt for the short term so that money will be there in the long term.  Downsizing is a good way to save money if that works for you.  There may be some changes in your workload, so be prepared for it by resting and eating properly.

CAPRICORN – December 22 – January 20 ruled by Saturn

March holds relationships in high regard, such as your marriage, intimate relationships, and business partnerships.  Be very honest about your feelings now.  Some contracts may have to be signed and there is a hint of divorce in the air for those who have been sitting on the fence for a long time about dissolving a partnership. Partnerships are changing and things may seem to be going in different directions than you had planned.  Stay focused on your romantic goals and love interests. Are the changes better for you and your partner?  Do things seem to be working out for the best?  Only you can judge what needs to be done and you are going to have to be the one to bring up any subject that feels uncomfortable or needs to be changed in a positive way. Love life is also a mystery.  One day it’s hot, the next day it’s cold.  People are getting fed up with this yo-yo energy around you, so make up your mind about what you really want to do and then just do it. Even though things seem very distressing, things will eventually calm down.  No one needs more drama in their lives so it may be time that you release the people who are always draining you and wanting you to help them out without giving you any reciprocal energy. You must be strong and learn how to say no.  Examples may be by telling them that tonight you are busy, you are on your way out to dinner, you are entertaining friends/family at your home or just ask if you may you call them next week when you have more time, etc.   Even though Pluto is bringing drama into your life, you will be triumphant in moving forward in the way you want to go.  If changes come to your workplace, do not fear new opportunities.  Welcome them.

AQUARIUS – January 21 – February 19 ruled by Uranus

March is all about releasing negative feelings and thoughts in your life.  With the spring will come many new beginnings so you should be ready for them.  This is a great time to get an additional formal education or attend lectures, seminars, workshops, etc., and listen to audiobooks or watch DVDs of movies, shows, and documentaries that you were not able to see in the past.  With all the running around, you need some downtime and you must take care of yourself.  See the doctor if it has been a long time since you had a physical and get peace of mind that everything is okay. Travel plans may be coming later in the year.  You want to get out of your humdrum routine and see exotic places or at the very least, just get away from your current surroundings.  This is also a good time to add creativity with the hope of relaxing to your otherwise very crazy life.  There will be lots of time for creating works of art, writing down important events in your life and even figuring out what the future has in store for you. There is a new road ahead of you filled with wonder, new beginnings, and wonderful possibilities.  When things hit a speed bump in life, it is time to take a leap of faith.  You will succeed in all that you do this month if you actually get out and do it.

PISCES – February 20 – March 20 ruled by Neptune

Time to focus on your goals, especially in business.  You may be asked to take some workshops or training for work; this will be a good thing to add to your resume so learn all you can.  Career is energized and you are focused on new beginnings on the job.  You may be called on to train someone or may get more responsibility for more money, so be as helpful as possible while setting some boundaries and limits of what you will and will not do.  Don’t be the proverbial doormat that you have allowed yourself to become by doing everything for everyone else and have no leftover time for yourself.  A new romance is always a possibility as well as continued luck and changes pushing you into a new life.  Others find you sexually attractive now so date the one who you intuitively feel is the right one for you.  You feel that you are more attractive and in shape and want to continue with improving yourself on so many levels, mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically. If you are holding onto a job or relationship just because “it is comfortable,” it is time for you to do something about it.  Stop living in a boring and routine life and take a stretch to see how life can help you get back into the ball game.  You are a wonderful creation of the universe and all of the issues and doubts that have been on the back shelf, need to be taken down, dealt with and cast aside.
