August Horoscopes 2019

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

Your Personal Years in Numerology

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

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

1 Personal Year – INITIATE

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

2 Personal Year – SMILE

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

3 PERSONAL YEAR – ENJOY

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

4 PERSONAL YEAR – STICK TO A ROUTINE

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

5 PERSONAL YEAR – EXPLORE

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

6 PERSONAL YEAR – ACCEPTANCE

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

7 PERSONAL YEAR- PRAY/MEDITATE

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

8 PERSONAL YEAR – ACTION

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

9 PERSONAL YEAR – ENDINGS

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

ARIES – March 20 – April 19

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

TAURUS – April 20 – May 20

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

GEMINI – May 21 – June 20

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

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

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

LEO – July 22 – August 22

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

VIRGO – August 23 – September 22

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

LIBRA – September 23 – October 22

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

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

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

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

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

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

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

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 17

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

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

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

July Horoscopes 2019

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

SOLAR ECLIPSES – NEW BEGINNINGS

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

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

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

July 2, 2019 – Cancer – negative

December 26, 2019 – Capricorn – negative

June 21, 2020 – Cancer – negative

December 14, 2020 – Sagittarius – positive

June 10, 2021 – Gemini – positive

December 4, 2021 – Sagittarius – positive

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

LUNAR ECLIPSES – JUST LET THINGS GO

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

Happy eclipse to all.

The sun goes into Leo on July 22.

 

ARIES – March 20 – April 19

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

TAURUS – April 20 – May 20

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

GEMINI – May 21 – June 20

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

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

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

LEO – July 22 – August 22

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

VIRGO – August 23 – September 22

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

LIBRA – September 23 – October 22

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

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

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

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

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

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

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

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 17

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

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

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

Reading Your Monthly Horoscopes

I’ve sure everyone has fun looking up their sun sign horoscope in the newspapers, on the internet or in magazines. They’re fun; however, they are based on charts done for each month and the sun sign’s characteristics in regard to its position to that month’s planets.  You would look up your sun sign or the sign that you were born under.  But, did you know that you could get a more complete picture of how your month (or year) will turn out by adding two other elements?  If you know your Ascendant (the sign on your natal chart’s first house) and your moon sign (the sign the moon was in at the time of your birth), you will get a more well-rounded prediction of the month.

By adding your Ascendant or the sun sign on your first house (which was on the horizon at the time of your birth), it will give you a more detailed look into how the month is personally affecting you from your own perspective. It is also the personality you show the world, so this is an important addition to the horoscopes.  It affects how you act, what type of person you are, your ego, your personal appearance and personality. By adding the moon’s sign to this mix, it will give you more insight into the emotional side of the month and if you will be handling it well or need to be prepared to positively handle your month.  It does control some of your intellect, but generally speaking, it does fuel your imagination, creativity and inventiveness.  The sun sign is your core beliefs and how you feel about yourself deep down inside your heart as well as family, relationships in general and everything else you can think of including your deep seeded characteristics and personality; so, the combination of these three elements will be very interesting indeed.

If you don’t know your Ascendant or moon’s sun sign, email me at vikki.anderson1225@gmail.com with your name, time and date of birth as well as where (city/state) you were born and I will email that information back to you.

Have fun by increasing the accuracy of your monthly prediction which will pertain only to you since you will be using the three sun signs from your personal chart.  Enjoy.

 ARIES – March 20 – April 19

This is a great month to get out and socialize; join new groups or associations that can further your hobby interests or career.  This is the time to draw encouragement and strength from your friends.  Humanitarian efforts and help will go a long way in making you feel extremely positive about your work in a charitable field and about yourself.  Get out of your old routine and do something exciting and adventurous, as long as it isn’t dangerous, of course!  Try hard not to take the lead on too many things.  You may seem very pushy and friends or family may back off.  You love your independence, but try not to be so independent that you don’t let anyone into your life and are left on your own.  Be loving and kind, set goals and ambitions one by one, and try to accomplish what you feel would benefit the community, the world and/or yourself next.

TAURUS – April 20 – May 20

This month seems to have you thinking a lot about many things and trying to make decisions on important issues.  There will also be a tendency to want to be alone more than usual.  You want to make plans without anyone’s uninformed advice or opinions.  But there will be people around you to help your dreams come true.  Be ready to make fantasy a reality.  You can do it.  You find security now in steady and predictable growth.  You may want things to get done faster than is possible, so a bit of patience will go a long way. You are a giving and caring person and may find yourself in the role of guidance counseling or therapist to friends and colleagues.  Try not to take on too much since you have your own issues to deal with as well.  It would be important to keep some boundaries so you may continue to stay in perfect health.  Spreading yourself too thin is not in your best interest at this time. 

GEMINI – May 21 – June 20

This month may be a little more active than others, which is saying a lot for a Gemini.  You will have many activities, errands, classes, hobbies, and family gatherings planned and you will try to attend or do them all.  You have a strong desire to be seen, heard and to be known, especially by communicating by letter, email or writing a story or novel.  You have too many irons in the fire and need to be more focused as you can be all over the place, never completing your goals, your mission or dream.  Focus, consolidate, prioritize and if you need to, get help with anything that warrants it.  You can always start new things, but the challenge for you now is to finish what you start.  You may be very changeable now in both appearance and personality.  Feeling that change is always for the best, you may wish to attract more changes and goals.  You may experience some nervousness, but that’s normal for a Gemini.  Think positively and everything will go fine. 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

Money matters seem to be on your mind.  Whatever you have, you definitely want to keep.  Deciding what you should spend your money on is important to you right now.  Great time for long-term investments to help you keep your prosperity at a level you are comfortable with.  This is a good time to raid the attic or basement to see what treasures you or a family member may have packed away years ago that may have some financial value now.  This is a good time to start planning a yard sale and make a little bit of extra cash and clean out your home at the same time.  Having friends or neighbors help with your sale would help you to catch up on others’ lives and socialize at the same time.  Have your friends and neighbors bring their “treasures” to your yard sale too, so it will be a big event to last over a weekend.  This is all about what you have, what you want to keep and how secure you feel with everything that’s going on in your life, especially in finances.

LEO – July 22 – August 22

Family, friends, and short trips, exploration, investigations, uncovering truths and keeping the focus on honesty and friendship is important this month.  It also is an important month to communicate with your siblings, so if this is not a priority for you, perhaps it’s time to reconnect and bond.  You may want to spend more time with family and friends and you may even want to spend some time with them on vacations in new destinations or places you’ve always had been drawn to; however, at the same time, you are becoming more secretive about correspondence, texts, or emails, even though there is nothing to hide.  You don’t want anyone knowing too much of your business.  This is a take charge kind of month.  Figure out what you want to do and then take steps to get to that goal.  This is a very mental time where you will be drawn to figuring out, peering, furthering your understanding on many things and finishing what you have started.

VIRGO – August 23 – September 22

Home life is interesting.  You may want to redecorate, repaint some rooms and/or get new furniture, rugs or accessories for a new fresh look.  This is about you being happy with the place you call home and sleep each night.  You should feel safe and secure while also feeling a sense of calm around you.  Your family’s well-being is also important to you now so you take steps to make sure everyone is healthy and happy.  It would be important to know if any family members are missing doctor appointments or not taking medications. You can certainly get them back on track easily.  This is a time of emotion, awareness and expression as you own your past experiences.  You move forward effortlessly.  You will also be involved with children, animals (mostly pets) and creative expression.  Having fun is what is warranted now as you have been taking life too seriously and need to balance your energy so you can remain calm and grateful. 

LIBRA – September 23 – October 22

Get ready for a lot of fun this month.  There are many things that you can do with friends and family that you perhaps put on hold earlier in the year.  Do the things that you always wanted to do, but never had the time or money to do them.  Don’t be a stickler for too many rules or you may regret starting a particular adventure.  Feel free to express yourself.  Your creativity, originality, inventiveness and vision may help you accomplish beautiful pieces of artwork, stories, plays, poems, as well as finding your way to acting or singing which may be just what you need to find your own special talent to express your feelings and emotions.  New experiences keep you on your toes.  You need to get out of the familiar desperately.  Spread your wings and try new things as well as meet new people.  Don’t be too sensitive now as others are not remarking personally to you to offend. You can reply in a very composed manner to show the insult or comment didn’t bother you.  Life is good, but as always there are always a few people who may rock the boat.  Be the anchor.

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

What a great time to start a new exercise program and to eat healthier.  The summer is right around the corner so you want to be prepared for bathing suit season!  Let’s not do what you have done each year by saying you will start a diet and then keep postponing it until New Year comes around.  All you really have to do is limit your portion size and eat responsibly and you will shed pounds quickly.  You feel as if you work better alone and left to your own resources.  It is easier to get goals and projects lined up if you only have yourself to answer to on the upcoming workload.  Others may see this as you trying to take over assignments for your own purposes, so try to be a team player and just take a little bit more responsibility so you may handle your workload successfully.  Taking better care of your health and nutrition will help you have a more productive month and more restful nights.  Don’t question too many things; there are always going to be questions, but handle what you must for your own good.  Try not to take on too much during this time as this should be a reflective time; you want to know if you are going on the right path for the rest of your life.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

You seem to be paying attention to your health and the health of close relationships, whether it’s romantic, family or friendships.  You also want to make sure that you have balance between work and leisure time.  Partnerships keep you energized and in good spirits.  You don’t want to stop and rest for too long as you have plans and want to get started with them.  Your life path involves a journey with others, partners, people who can help you find answers you desperately need. You may be looking for someone with whom you can travel or experience new adventures. You are growing emotionally and want to understand more about the people around you.  You love the outdoors, sports and travel, so why not incorporate some of your interests into your month or at the very least make plans for them on a vacation or getaway with someone special.  You feel extremely independent now, but still need the other part of you to make things feel right.  Be open with others, have fun, laugh and seek joy and optimism wherever you go.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Strong feelings about things you may have hidden in the past may come out.  Be prepared to resolve them with fairness and compassion.  You may also be interested in keeping all your important paper work up-to-date if you had let it get away from you.  This may be a time of transition or transformation for you and change may not always be easy, but it is usually for our own good.  This is a good time to invest for the future since it is an extremely practical time where you have learned from past experiences and won’t be fooled again.  You may have to accept a more responsible, disciplined or serious approach to life.  Learn how to like hard work which will give you the feeling of great accomplishment.  Persevere.  You may be a bit uncomfortable in the public eye, but work well behind the scenes and accomplish much.  This is a time of changing life long habits that may have outlived their usefulness in your life and an interest in the occult or metaphysics may also be in your future, if you allow time for them.  You expose all the right answers now and help others see the truth they were looking for.  A very confusing month for you, but one which will be remembered.

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 17

Your place in the world means more to you than normal.  You want to make a good impression at work and with those that mean the most to you.  This is a great time for you to think outside of the box at work.  You show great promise at work and are really organizing and making fair and equal decisions so that all benefit from your professional work or new programs. Career is important and you want to show that you are up to the task of accomplishing all of the new plans you had made. Some may also be thinking of retiring after giving it a lot of thought, you may hold off a little bit longer to get to that special age or until you reach a certain salary that will help with social security.  You can certainly see yourself retired, but are a bit afraid that you won’t have enough money at this time. Talk to an accountant or financial planner to see if your fears are justified.  Meeting someone may be very easy now as it seems as if you are ready to make some type of commitment, although it may not be marriage at this time.  Be open to opportunities as many will be in your best interest if you are brave enough to grab them.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Friends, groups and associations as well as your hopes, dreams and wishes are the center of your focus now.  You can be pushed into the background at work, but it is up to you to make your contributions known.  You may inspire others to reach for their dreams as you show them that you are getting the opportunities and chances that you deserve.  This would be a wonderful time to relax and study the esoterica, film, the arts, fantasies and far out trips.  It is a time for you to be an explorer.  Have some fun.  It is important that you use your talents at work, but it is also time for you to do something for yourself and/or your loved ones.  You need more balance in your life.  Life has become too hectic and it’s up to you to slow it down for your own good mental health.  Not everything has to get done today.  Pace yourself, use your creative mind to find the time and energy to have the life you really want and deserve.

March 2019 Horoscopes

Important Dates:  March 5th is Shrove Tuesday/Mardi Gras, March 6th is Ash Wednesday, 17th is is St. Patrick’s Day, 20th is The Vernal Equinox and the 21st is Purim.

Vernal Equinox Energies

The Vernal Equinox or spring energy coming to fruition after a cold and dismal winter, will be refreshing, brisk and teaming with life.  Though it just doesn’t happen overnight.  The winter’s chill and lifelessness slowly give way to the birth of the first seen fawn or calf (deer) as well as the first robin seen in your yard; then the new buds on your bushes and trees.  Life returns to us in the spring.  It’s a time of balance, renewal and rejuvenation of all the flora and fauna around us as; it also gives us new ideas, new ventures, new journeys, new beginnings, new career opportunities and, of course, new life or life choices in our existence.

This is a time to get rid of all the negative or winter energy lingering inside of your homes and in your lives.  Winter is a stagnant time; after the holidays, life is put on hold.  You may read, catch up on your favorite shows and do some small chores around the house, but in general, most people have had enough of snow and ice and want to reunite with friends and loved ones on a more regular basis.  We all desire communication with our loved ones.  We want to express our opinions to those who are important to us and want to hear their views on various subjects.  It’s a time for friendly debate and for having conversations that should not have waited over the winter.

The Vernal Equinox is a new beginning in all things.  Make a fresh start of a relationship whether it’s with family or friends, feel energized in knowing you will accomplish great things now because your energy level is much higher than in the past months.  Write a list of all the things you wish to accomplish so that you can figure out how much time you must expend with each chore or adventure and then move on to another exciting adventure.  New adventures are perfect for this time of the year.

Open your eyes and see the wonderful possibilities around you in your career, home life, love life and in your financial goals.  If you don’t like something that is going on in your life, change it!  This is the time to take control of your life and live it the way you have always intended.  You only get so many Vernal Equinoxes in your lifetime, so make each one count.

Vernal equinox, two moments in the year when the Sun is exactly above the Equator and day and night are of equal length; also, either of the two points in the sky where the ecliptic (the Sun’s annual pathway) and the celestial equator intersect.

Shrove Tuesday, the day immediately preceding Ash Wednesday (the beginning of Lent in Western churches). It occurs between February 2 and March 9, depending on the date of Easter. Shrove, derived from shrive, refers to the confession of sins as a preparation for Lent, a usual practice in Europe in the Middle Ages. *www.britannica.com

ARIES – March 20 – April 19

Reconnecting with friends, groups and associations will be beneficial to you and your goals.  Many surprising and unusual things happen around you and you respond by finding new paths in life to move your life ahead in a positive manner.  Everything is not status quo at this time.  Deciding whether your career is what you always thought it would be is important now.  Is this where you thought you would be in this stage of your life?  Make positive changes decisively so you can move forward to do anything you want to do.  Don’t hold yourself back now.  Energy is with you and pushing you in the right direction to make your life happy and healthy. 

TAURUS – April 20 – May 20

Your energy level is high and you would like to accomplish so much; however, sometimes your procrastination gets in the way and then you are upset that you didn’t complete what you had started.  This is a time to make your dreams, hopes and aspirations a reality.  This is a time to get back with your friends that you haven’t been in touch with for some time.  Social groups, professional associations and networking organizations may help you with a specific task or job/career you are looking to start. You may find a mentor.  Do what you have to do to go in that direction.  Have fun and take day trips, a weekend getaway or longer vacation if you can spare it now, but being with the one you love is essential. You should keep the passion alive and share all of your experiences with the one(s) you love.  

GEMINI – May 21 – June 20

This is a time when you should not take anyone’s word without double checking facts.  Find out if the information you received was accurate before making major decisions. No oral agreements, everything should be written down. Metaphysical, esoterica and philosophy will be of interest.  You may even try to take on a new language, such as on Duolingo.com which is a free app and is wonderful (I’m using it myself to get up to speed with German again).  Do things that have been piling up or that you haven’t had time to complete.  Mediate, pray or do anything that brings you self-confidence in yourself or enlightenment.  You need to connect to the universe and feel as if you are a part of it for peace of mind, body and spirit.  There may be a visit or two to a hospital or Urgent Care Center for tests, but nothing that is out of the ordinary.  

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

Objectively looking at everything in your life makes you want to create changes. Do what makes you happy. Everyone else cannot come before you, as you have done in the past. This month should be a turning point where you make yourself the most important person in your life.  Try a makeover, a shopping spree for new clothes or shoes/boots, make yourself feel wonderful by spending time on yourself.  You may also feel more confident and more self-assured as the month continues.  You have everything you need to make your life the exact way you want it, but you have to make appropriate changes to get what you want.  See what makes sense to you and then choose what you must do to make it a reality.  You will be happy to find that you can be self-reliant and do so many things on your own and not thinking what others may think of your decisions.  Be open to change.

LEO – July 22 – August 22
Money and family, responsibilities and obligations dealt with through communication with friends and family is important now.  Nothing should be left on the back burner.  Get all that dull energy away from you and your family by conquering that issue or project a little every day.  This is a good time to take a look at your finances and see where you can budget better.  Your generosity is wonderful, but now it’s time to tighten your belt and save for a rainy day.  Good luck is helping protect your financial abundance, prosperity and security.  You also want to make sure that you enjoy the month by visiting friends and family or taking your family to some reasonably priced events or meals.  Togetherness is important now. What a great time for important discussions about your vacation plans, your expectations of the family and offering to help with whatever they need to flourish.

VIRGO – August 23 – September 22

Home life is important now, so either you feel as if you want to stay in your home more to enjoy your family and spent time with them or perhaps you may want to redecorate your surroundings.  It’s vital that you have a plan and stick with it for any changes in the home you want to make.  The budget can get out of hand very quickly and this may stir up some arguments which could have easily been avoided if you prepared and organized earlier.  Relationships in the home are going well and this would be a good time to have a family meeting and see if there is anything that you can handle or participate in. You may just wish to see what is important in your family’s lives at the moment. Your work schedule may interfere with this time at home, but if you plan your day/week/month carefully, you will be able to accomplish all that you want to in a timely manner. 

LIBRA – September 23 – October 22

Family, home life and children are your top interests this month.  Fun, doing things with the children and getting to be part of adventures together will make this a great time to reconnect and find out what the kids are thinking about and perhaps what their concerns are.  It will be easy to talk to anyone if you listen more than talk and/or judge.  Let them tell you their worries and issues.  Then when you’ve heard them out and you feel comfortable in helping them with their real or imagined problems, you can turn it around and plan some things that are fun; make sure it’s something the whole family can do together.  A closeness and respect will engulf the whole family, making all very content and cheerful.

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

This month deals with children, fun, procreation, and the creation of creative and cultural works of art.  If you are not the creative type, then it would be a good time to go to a museum or art gallery to educate yourself in the arts.  A Broadway play or local theater production would also be enjoyable now.  Delve into things you only knew superficially to get a deeper feeling of what you were missing and what you have gained through this experience.  Perhaps you may wish to take a formal education class or if you are a senior citizen, you can audit classes at your local college for free.  Take a class that ignites your imagination and that will bring you joy. You will be dealing with love on a deeper emotional level and with that may come some challenges that you must face head on.  This is a month where you think too much about the necessity of pain, change, addiction, and fears.  Replace that energy with positive vitality and blessings for all.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Health issues seem to improve tremendously if you’ve had any issues.  However, this is a lucky time for you in health, but also other areas of life such as your career and service, your personal hygiene, pets, daily routines and responsibilities.  With this lucky energy around you, it’s a time to think things through in the above-mentioned areas of life.  What a wonderful time to start volunteering in charitable organizations, and, of course, it’s a great time to adopt a shelter rescue pet, play with your pet or make sure that your pet is up on its vaccinations, etc.  You will get closer to your pets and may even have more time to spend with them.  They need your attention and love, so anytime you have to spare would be a blessing for them.  Also, take a look at your job/career.  Is it something that makes you happy?  Or are you just going to your job each and every day because at the end of the week, it supplies you with a paycheck.  It’s time to spend your days loving what you do for a living.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Marriage and personal relationships may be strained.  Just be patient and listen to your partner, friend or child more intently and everything will work itself out.  You feel overly emotionally and sensitive now, but in reality, you need to be a referee in some disputes or issues. This is not the time to think of yourself. Talk things over with loved ones and see how you can help them resolve an issue that may have an impact on the both of you.  By doing this, you will feel more confident in yourself because then you will know you can handle anything.  Just know that things that are said and done are not being intentionally done to you.  You should be very open to discussing appropriate and inappropriate behavior to family and close friends.  Let them know your stand on the issue at hand.  Maybe you will feel as if there are some restrictions and limitations on you, but you can overcome them easily if you are determined and resolute.  You have taken on too much, so this is a good time to delegate and keep some spare time for yourself to breathe and just relax.                                   

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 17

Venus, the second-best luck planet, is in Aquarius and your higher education, lectures, seminars, workshops, foreign travel, philosophy and religion house is activated.  Great time to take a trip or do something adventurous that you haven’t had time or the money to do in the past.  Indulge yourself and stop worrying about finances.  Bills will always be there; the opportunities to travel or do what you want with your partner, friends or children are limited.  Look over important papers and make any necessary changes that are required.  Copy your passport, license, credit cards and place them in with your other essential papers, such as, your life insurance, DNR, power of attorney and will. This will make it very easy and organized for whoever will take care of your estate when you passed on in the future.  You love to be organized so this will make you feel in complete control of your future and wishes.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Career is activated.  You need to add imagination and creativity to your job and its future if you want it to succeed.  Innovation will push you ahead of anyone else being considered for a promotion or pay raise that you may be interested in. The status quo should not be considered any longer.  Use your logical mind now to make vital decisions and be organized, well informed and happy in your job.  There are many blessings coming to you through your job as well as in your general life as well.  As long as you are resourceful and inspired, this will be a very pleasant time.  You are very interested in the way you look, so anything you can do to make yourself feel prettier is right for you at this time.  Mani/pedis, waxing, new hairstyles and perhaps even a few pieces of clothing added to your wardrobe will make you feel exhilarated.  As long as you feel beautiful and cared for, you will send that loving energy out into the world which will touch so many people in a positive way.

ARIES – March 20 – April 19

This month requires you to be extremely careful and logical about your finances. Follow your budget! Sudden and unexpected circumstances may force you to dip into your savings, so you want to make sure you are still secure.  You may have been saving for a large purchase, so this is the time to make it a reality.  Running around and doing a million things at once keeps you very busy.  Be sure to make time for yourself to rest and do something special for yourself.  There are many things you could do with family or friends that don’t cost a lot of money.  Even visiting someone for coffee can be very satisfying when you catch up on their life and you say what’s been going on in your life.  Nice opportunities for a makeover or to add new clothes to your wardrobe.  You will be very loving, kind and sensitive.  Dig deep down into your inner being for answers to the questions you still have about yourself or decisions you have made.  Spirituality is never wasted.  Have an open heart and mind and everything will take care of itself.

TAURUS – April 20 – May 20

Family issues may arise unexpectedly, so it would be a good idea to deal with them as soon as possible so you can get back to a loving relationship with them.  You don’t want to have a Valentine’s Day being angry with someone.  Be the bigger person and apologize for any misunderstandings.  Communication is very important now.  Say what you mean and mean what you say.  Short distance travel may be tricky, so be cautious and don’t take any chances while in the car or public transportation.  In the home, be mindful of where you are stepping and make sure someone is home if you decide to change drapes or anything where you may be on a stepladder or other surface.  Thinking about metaphysics, spirituality or esoterica keeps you busy.  Continue to read, learn, and find out the answers you need to know.  Life is about experiencing “the unexpected” so just go out and do it. 

GEMINI – May 21 – June 20

Home life keeps you busy.  There’s the ever-constant redecorating or changing splashes of color, pillow, accents, etc., throughout your home to give it a fresh look! There is so much you want to do around the house and are even thinking of things for your “TO DO” list for the spring.  Don’t bite off more than you can chew.  Handle a few things at a time and then go to the next project.  Speaking with relatives candidly about sensitive issues would be a good step towards understanding each other more intimately.  Keeping busy in the winter is not hard for you at all.  You have your projects, crafts, art, computer, TV shows, and possibly a foreign language to keep you occupied.  Do come out of the house upon occasion to see real live people.  You like being alone and you also like being with people, so a healthy balance should keep you on track.  Read a good book each night to calm you down before going to bed so you will have an easier time falling asleep. 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

This is a time to get with friends that you may have let slip through the cracks.  Children and family members may need you too, whether it’s your expertise in some area or just your time — which will make them feel special.  You are looking to have more fun and it would be great if you included some of your family or friends who you may have recently neglected.  There are so many things you can do with loved ones and I’m sure you will have a splendid time.  Career is interesting.  You may be deciding what to do with it at the present time.  Are you happy?  Is it time for another career?  Do they appreciate all the hard work you put into your job?  Your job seems stable if you want it to be; however, there may be areas that you may wish to change or give suggestions of change.  If you give the ideas carefully and with the spirit that it will help all involved, it will be taken seriously.  Make your work place somewhere that you enjoy spending most of your day every day.

LEO – July 22 – August 22
Partnerships are confusing and puzzling.  It would be a good idea to get any concerns or issues dealt with so that you can move forward in a very positive way.  Too many distractions, and thinking too much may keep you from enjoying your relationships. Visit those you haven’t seen in a long time and perhaps call the other ones you can’t visit at the present time. Stop over-reacting to everything.  Take one day and issue at a time.  You can’t be everything to everybody.  More boundaries and limitations may have to be imposed now.  This is about your family and you and not everyone else now.  You have to divide your spare time with those you love and give yourself more time to accomplish your goals and dreams.  Health issues need to be taken care of as soon as possible and if you are feeling good, be positive that you ensure you stay healthy by not taking on more than you can handle as you may have done in the past.

VIRGO – August 23 – September 22

Finances and partnerships seem to be an area of interest this month.  Be sure not to argue over silly things.  It’s not worth the aggravation and stress.  If you want something that costs too much money at this time, save for it or wait until it goes on sale.  It’s not worth an argument with a partner or family member.  Be sure you both agree on major expenditures before purchasing something you want. This is a time to buy what you need; besides you got some lovely gifts for Christmas and that was only two months ago!  Important papers, wills, health directives and insurance policies may need to be updated, so you may want to look at that for now.  Friendships may be complicated, so give your friends some benefit of the doubt when criticizing their actions or words.  They may be going through something very difficult and do not want to share it with you at this time.  Be compassionate and loving and all will work out in the end. 

LIBRA – September 23 – October 22

Time to organize all of your important papers, especially if you’ve been putting it off.  Wills, life insurances, 401Ks, etc., may need to be updated with new beneficiaries or new percentages of the total amount of the policies. Money also needs to be thought about…how to invest, how to make more interest, how to make it grow, etc. Thinking about so many things keeps you very busy and it will be difficult to make positive decisions if you don’t break down your issues to just a “this is good for me or my family” or “this is not good for me or my family.”  Make your decisions very black and white, right or wrong, yes or no.  Be decisive and don’t change your mind once you’ve made a decision.  It would be better for you to make decisions now with more logic and intelligence rather than with your heart.  Most of the decisions you make this month solely on “your heart’s feelings”, will be wrong.  Take control of your life a little at a time and soon you will have everything finished, decided and completed in a good time frame that works for everyone.

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

What a lovely time to think of new classes, lectures, seminars, workshops in anything you feel you would like more knowledge.  These classes or formal education do not have to be for your job, but may be just something you’ve always wanted to learn.  Fun and relaxing classes will help relieve the stress you’ve been carrying for a while.  You must learn to unwind and not keep so much pent up inside of you.  Share your issues and concerns with those you trust.  You’ve heard all of their tales in the past, so now it’s your turn to unburden yourself!   You may be thinking of some foreign countries to visit during vacation, so get those brochures, magazines or browse the internet on the places you’ve always wanted to go.  There are always good deals if you book well enough in advance.  Philosophy or religion takes on a broader interest, so all in all, it looks like a time of some sort of enlightenment, planning and relieving some of the stresses you’ve had to endure.  You have to lighten up.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

This is a great time for lots of activities with women friends who will support you with any issues or with anything you wish to accomplish.  You are very sensitive now, although you don’t like to show it, but it helps you relate to people on a whole other empathetic level. This empathy makes you understand more fully what others are going through and your kind spirit wants to help.  Do what you can, but also keep time for yourself. You become interested in bettering yourself through self-help CDs, DVDs, classes and workshops.  You want to learn so much about everything, but never really stopped for a minute to have time for yourself.  If you have to pencil some time into your calendar for yourself, do it.  It may sound silly, but you are the one controlling the way you spend your time.  Why not give yourself some of the time you need to do whatever has been on your mind lately.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Keeping to yourself may be the norm for you this month, but you must force yourself to get up and out of the house.  You must do things with family and friends to accomplish some of those things on your goals’ list.  Planning for your future or to enhance the future in some way is of interest.  Money needs to be secure, so you are doing what you have to so that the family will always be cared for.  You are planning for the unexpected which not everyone does.  This takes tremendous forethought on your part and will help you figure out what is and is not important in your life.  There may be some emotional or mental upheavals but you will handle them well as you understand these are constant tests that the universe throws our way to make us better people.  Your steadfastness is really an asset.  If you get sad or depressed, remember that other people feel this way too, so go out with friends, talk with family and put your life in perspective.

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 17

Positive changes are all around you, if you let them happen.  Don’t be an obstacle in your own life.  Step back and figure out what is in your best interest and then let the universe manifest the magnificent wonders around you.  Time to take care of yourself for a change and do what you feel is right for you instead of taking care of everyone else.  That’s an interesting concept, isn’t it?  You first?  Wow.  Try not to take on too many other responsibilities and obligations than the ones you are currently handling.  You need to rest and evaluate what you can and cannot do.  You are wearing yourself out!  Your mental activity is going through the roof.  You overthink things too much and it isn’t really helping you make a decision or see things from a better viewpoint.  Talking with a trusted family member or friend is a good way to get your concerns out in the open, and hopefully, a solution to all this chaos will result in a decision or conclusion of your confusion.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

It’s time to put your creativity to good use to relax you and help you organize your thoughts.  Channeling your inner most inspiration and imagination into something you love to do will help you feel calm and at peace with yourself. Don’t let others get involved in your life that aren’t supposed to be in it.  Difficult or confusing circumstances make you hesitate about things you know you need to do, so take as long as you need to make decisions.  Give yourself a time frame and stick with it.  You can’t avoid things forever.  You must get on with your life.  Besides, if you make a mistake, you can always just fix it.  You need to constantly move forward towards your dreams.  Be aware of those who think it’s okay to lie to you about anything.  Make sure you double check claims or peoples’ information as there is a lot of deception out there – maybe not directed at you, but if you get hurtful information about someone, you should know if it is the truth or not.

January 2019 Horoscopes

Important Dates:  New Year’s Day, January 1; Solar Eclipse, January 5; and Martin Luther King Day, January 21.

New Year Energy

It’s a New Year, ready for new opportunities, new adventures, new beginnings, new jobs, new relationships, new goals, dreams and aspirations.  Have you really thought about what you would like to change in your life during this new year?  Will you take that trip you have always dreamed about?  Will you finally try to start a home-based business and get rid of your fear of leaving corporate?  Are you ready to look for love and not be afraid of getting hurt?

Life is about experiences and lessons.  How can you learn the lessons you are supposed to if you stay in your little safe corner always living the same day over and never taking a chance or making a change?  Be spontaneous.  Meet new people!  Join clubs that interest you and get to know more people with like mind and interests. Expand your horizons.  Learn more about a philosophy, religion or metaphysics.  Expand your mind.  Read that book you’ve always wanted to (I’m finally reading Pride and Prejudice after seeing all the movie productions of it and it’s fun to see what the original story was.)  Deal with issues you’ve ignored that may be haunting you or keeping you from moving forward.  Go after that new job or career.  Be a positive force in the universe and more positive opportunities and dreams will be attracted to you and become a reality.  Be strong even if life has thrown you some curves.  We can all be what we want to be and do what we want to do – the issue is that we need to believe in ourselves and have confidence in our choices.  Start the new year with confidence and purpose.  Have the year you deserve.  Make it a reality!

Every January, I like to remind my horoscope readers that I have adjusted the dates for each sign to reflex the actual 2019 sun signs dates. You will always remain the same sign in which you were born.

ARIES – March 20 – April 19

Many unexpected changes and new beginnings are coming your way.  Old ways of doing things are now a thing of the past.  You are looking for a new direction or doing things differently.  A change in personal style or a makeover may be in store for you as you seem to be disappointed in the status quo.  New good luck and opportunities come into your life; however, if you don’t grab them, they will disappear and will never return again.  Be sure to look over the opportunity even if you are not sure that you want it.  Opportunities will be presented to you for your best interest so it would be good if you at least look into it before making your decision.   You may have new ideas on how to work smarter and not harder, so this is the time to put your ideas into action so you have more time to spend with family or on your own interests.  Home life may be a bit confusing, but once you decide to finish projects, have the family to pitch in to help and follow a plan, your home turn into the comfortable place you’ve always wanted.

TAURUS – April 20 – May 20

You are trying to get many projects done, but seem to be getting a bit frustrated that there just isn’t enough time to complete everything.  Partnerships can be a bit strained, but with patience and persistence, you can change anything that you are not happy with within the relationship.  It is imperative that both of you communicate with each other and discuss what is on your mind.  Your career is going in a very good direction.  There are many possibilities for a promotion or change of job for more money, if you are looking for something new.  It also seems as if this is a time where you are playing the role of everyone’s mother by giving advice, opinions, making decisions for others and generally just by being there as a shoulder to cry on.  This is a compassionate thing to do; however, your energy seems to be going to others while your energy field is being drained more and more as the days go by.  So, be careful not to let your immune system be compromised.  You must rest, take care of yourself and let others take care of their own lives for awhile.

GEMINI – May 21 – June 20

Money still continues to be a worry, but with determination and persistence, you will be able to pay your bills and get those special projects around the house done in a timely manner.  You may have to put some of the more expensive projects on hold for now, but not for long.  Depression or sadness may take hold of you from time to time as you review your last year and realize that you hadn’t accomplished all that you wanted to.  Giving more attention to your needs would be a big help in attaining your goals.  Your energy is scattered all over the place, so start prioritizing your life.  You may be wondering where you will be a year from now.  Creative budgeting and common sense get you through the month just fine. 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

Family and home are very important.  Life may be blown out of proportion so just go with the flow on many things.  Don’t get too upset before you know the outcome of certain situations.  Many things will take you by surprise, but don’t worry, they will be good surprises!  A conflict in home life will keep you overwhelmed and stressed, so ask for help, put things on the back burner and just do what absolutely has to get done at the moment so you can handle any issue that needs to be taken care of.  You are thinking about so many different areas of your life that you would like to enhance or change, but Cancerians are not the easiest sign to accept change.  You need to figure out exactly what it is you want out of your job, your family, your career and your life in general before those things can be given to you.

LEO – July 22 – August 22
Children will be your main focus now, so be sure to prepare interesting and creative projects for them to learn from as well as gain a brand-new skill.  Romantic love takes a giant leap forward and you are really ready for this after the last year you have had.  Be open to new relationships and just know that someone special is coming your way.  If married or involved, your relationship seems to be going in a much better direction once there is a bit of compromise or mutual understanding about your future together.  Friendships can be confusing and you may even find out that one of your trusted friends have betrayed you in some way.  It is up to you whether or not to forgive your friend, but be sure this was not just a misunderstanding or mistake.

VIRGO – August 23 – September 22
Health, diet and exercise are being activated now; however, health concerns may be real.  If you are not feeling well or are worried about something that just doesn’t feel right in your body, a quick trip to the doctor will help you decide on your next course of action.  Rest is very important for you now since it doesn’t look as if you ever quit.  You keep doing more and more and your leisure time seems to be less frequent, if you have any at all.  Metaphysics or esoteric teachings may be of interest.  A class or two may be in your future to learn a particular modality or a new topic in general.  You want to learn something new and seem to be moving into the spiritual realm.  Many changes are coming for you and if they are planned, they will be wonderful.  If you let the universe run your life then you are never really prepared for what will manifest for you.  Finish other projects before starting new ones. 

LIBRA – September 23 – October 22

Personal and business relationships (as well as situations dealing with the law or court in some way) are the main focus now.  Your activities keep you busy, and if you look into your health issues just a little bit more, you will do well.  You go back and forth on many decisions which really need to be made.  Always listen to the first thought that comes into your mind about a particular issue and just accept that as a Divine answer to your question.  Not deciding is not a decision.  Seeing both sides to a situation is amazing but not if it keeps you confused and overwhelmed.  Your procrastination is at an all time high and if you keep procrastinating, you will attract more negative energy to you and who needs that?

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21
Emotions can be very tricky this month, especially if it includes your partner.  You may seem overly jealous or possessive but a logical talk with your partner will put your mind to rest.  You are overthinking.  Keeping life in perspective has never been hard for you to do; however, you may feel as if too many things are just not going as planned.  You are getting more comfortable with your life, especially if you’ve recently made a major move in your career or home.  Finishing those long-forgotten projects or things that have bothered you (because you haven’t had the time to complete them) will help you feel a sense of stability and security.  You need to organize your life, get rid of things that mean nothing to you and only keep those things that are essential to your well being and happiness.  De-cluttering or organizing your life and home will also bring in good luck and more positive opportunities that will be in your best interest.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Creativity, long distance travel and education are activated now.  You are interested in so many areas of life and what you can and can’t do.  Don’t limit yourself in any way.  Get out there and make a difference in your life and the life of others.  Money issues need to be clarified and dealt with so that you will no longer worry about your financial future.  Update financial records, wills, and tax records so that everything will be at hand if needed.  Spirituality, artistic ability and metaphysics become important now as you want to learn everything that you can about the subjects you have an interest in.  This is a great time to paint, start a new project, read and think about what it is you want to accomplish in the near future.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19
There will be a lot of activity at work so be prepared to work hard and get a little bit more organized.  You may also start thinking of getting the next certification for your business so you can proceed to bigger and better things.  There is so much going on within your head.  Your energy levels are strong and yet you just seem to be standing still.  Don’t over think your decisions.  Once you’ve made them stick with them or just fix the error you’ve made and move on!  Change is on the horizon as well as thinking about so many different areas of life that you wish could be changed or that never happened.  Some reciprocal energy is required now for your good mental and physical health.

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 17

Friends are the highlight of the month.  Some members of the opposite sex may want to be more than friends, but you are very specific when it comes to choosing a romantic partner.  Friends may want to set you up on a blind date.  Go, it’s just a date and you may meet the woman/man of your dreams.  Make sure you are living in reality before you make any important changes.  Resting, reading or exercising will help you get back into great physical shape or state of mind.  Relieve stress and make some alone time for yourself and then Magic will mysteriously appear all around you, if you look for it.  Nature is helping you connect with those who have passed on and you feel it.  It’s an amazing time for you to meet a new partner and you may even get serious with one or two.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Mysterious and unusual circumstances follow you no matter where you go.  What else is new?  Many secrets seem to be around you now, but they are not too important anyway, so you should not be concerned.  Just ignore the negative energy and you will be just fine.  A few hospital tests or visiting someone in the hospital may be at hand.  Uncovering your passion for reading, learning, creativity and artist pursuits will help calm you down and clarify the things that have been bothering you.  Spirituality is always a fine way of getting back to the things you believe in. Teaching or taking a class or two will help you attain the confidence you need to move forward in a very positive way.  The year is like a rose starting to blossom a little each day.

August 2018 Horoscopes

Important Dates:  Solar Eclipse on August 11, and Women’s Equality Day on the 26th.

Book Cases in Feng Shui

Many of us have large bookcases filled with hard and soft cover books that we have read many years ago or with the ones we hope to read in the future.  Have you thought about donating your “read” books to your local library or your children’s school’s library?   Once you have read a book (and sometimes you may read it twice, it becomes a dust collector and another bit of clutter.

Once your “must have” or “must keep” books are in your book case, try a little variety.  Lay some down horizontally and others in the vertical position.  This will balance the yin/yang energy in the room.  Horizontal books bring in quiet and laid-back energies (yin), while vertical books bring in active and energetic energies (yang).  Keep many of your children’s books in the horizontal position in their room or the energy may be too scattered to allow your child a good night’s sleep. You may also wish to put various colored book covers on your cherished items — these colors should be appropriate to the area of the gua in which the book case(s) are located.

If your book case is filled with old magazines, donate them to a nursing home or doctor’s office OR give them to friends who may not be able to afford a subscription to the magazines you currently order.  An easy way of de-cluttering is to throw them out as soon as you’ve read them or just cut out the articles of interest and put them in a folder so you can read them in a doctor’s office or while waiting for your car to be serviced, etc.

Nowadays many of us have a Kindle so the need for piles of books is no longer a necessity when you may carry many thousands of books in your hand.

This is just another example of decluttering your home a step at a time to find the positive opportunities and voluntary simplicity that we all long to have in our lives.  Happy Feng Shui.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Dealing with romantic partner issues seems like an excellent way to clear the path for a positive future together.  Handling limitations, responsibilities and obligations work in your best interest since you are using your intelligence (and not emotions) to talk things through and compromise in many areas.  Your friends will back you up with any decision you make. Be ready to be on the go as this seems to be a time where you are ready to leave the hum-drum past behind and are ready for new adventures and lots of fun. It would be nice to invite friends and family members to join you so you can get to know them better.  You have carefully stayed away from those who could help you in so many ways, and it seems like time to accept their helpful hints and suggestions to get you back on the right track. 

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

You seem to be dealing with so many financial decisions. Should you spend or should you save?  Should you move or stay where you are? Do you really want to take that risk?  There seems to be so many unexpected expenditures in the near future that it would seem wise to hold off on unnecessary spending. Save, put money away for a rainy day and figure out your next move.  Arguments, disagreements and difficult decisions make you a bit angry and confused over issues with your romantic partner. Friends and family would love to help, but you seem to be too secretive now and are not sharing your feelings easily as you don’t trust too many people in your life with your emotions.  Getting others involved in your confusion will not help you make the much- needed decisions for the best of all involved.  You need to talk to someone about your concerns, perhaps even a professional to get an unbiased look at your situation and options.  

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Travel is indicated if you are willing and financially able; if not, you can have smaller day trips to local parks or events that are free or very reasonable. You need to organize the rest of the year and figure out in which direction you should go. Expanding your business is always a good idea.  There seems to be a contradiction of purpose which forces you to swing back and forth from the work you are trying to pursue to your personal growth; you are not exactly sure how to balance these energies.  My advice is to give “your all” at work and in your personal life. Yes, we do get tired, but if you schedule theater, movies, dinners, lectures, or special event, etc., to fit into your busy life with your closest friends and family, (or a specific date night with your romantic partner), you will start to mellow out and things will become much easier for you to handle. You will look forward to this relaxing time. Be a little more tolerant of your significant other or business partners.  You seem to be uptight or annoyed about many things and you wouldn’t want to take out your frustration on those closest to you. 

CANCER –  June 21 – July 21

Your personal magnetism attracts many special people into your life which may be long term relationships of both friends and partners. Relationships improve, however, be careful not to spend too much time at work and spend quality time with those important to you. You seem to have things under control now and are planning your future with optimism and hopefulness. Your finances seem to continue to be prosperous as you may get involved in other business ventures (including part time or a home-based business) and you seem to be on the right track.  Everything you touch now turns to gold, so go for it!  You are being blessed to expand and grow in many positive directions.  Even though you may start to tackle things that seem unorthodox or unconventional, be persistent and get through the tasks without hesitation.  Procrastination will make things worse!  Many new opportunities will be given to you so if you know what you want, it will be easier to grab the opportunity once it is presented to you.  

LEO –  July 22 – August 22

You may be thinking in an exceptionally creative or innovative mode now and may be bringing that energy to your romantic life, so just enjoy. There is so much positive energy around you to help you get out, explore, move on, have fun and be in the moment, especially if there are summer time activities around you that you wish to participate in. Don’t over think things now as everything will work out for the best in a very short period of time.  Long distance travel seems favored, so why not take a long-needed vacation.  Even though there may be some delays or paper related mix-ups, it does seem to bring you the fun and relaxation you need.  It is important for you to get out of the house to have fun with your friends and to mingle with those who are in your business, charities and peer associations or groups.  You have much energy around you, but you seem to need a cosmic kick in the pants to get moving in the right direction.    

VIRGO –  August 23 – September 21

Don’t make snap decisions, but once you’ve decided on a course of action, stay with your plan.  Changes in work also seem to be imminent.  Have you decided which road or path you will take?  This seems like a good time to talk things over at work and home with those important to you so that you are clearly understood.  Your messages just do not seem to be getting through properly.  Money may be of concern now, however, you seem to be blessed and will be able to do well once you set your mind on your goals and objectives. You seem very sensitive and are confused about your romantic relationship.  You may want to try to have a meaningful communication with your romantic significant to deal with issues you may have.  Home life may seem somewhat unstable, so do whatever you can to make it secure again.  If changes are inevitable, at least you can calmly discuss things and decide what is in both of your best interest before reacting to circumstances around you without a plan. 

LIBRA –  September 22 – October 22

Much activity seems to push you into many directions that you never thought possible.  If you truly do not want to help others at this time, why are you doing it? This seems to be a good time for you to take care of yourself, your family and your desires and not think about anyone else who wants you to change. Be wary of deception in a relationship and make sure you can verify whatever he or she is telling you, so that you won’t be hurt in the future.  You are just too trusting of everyone, but you must remember that not everyone is as honest and truthful as you, so you would be best not to take everyone at their word without question.  Foreign travel, higher education or lectures and classes seem to help you grow in so many ways.  You are a sponge for information now so should use the energy around you to make the most of it.  Thinking in a confused, depressed or anxious manner will not get you the results you want or need, so use your intelligence and logic to deal with those who play on your emotions or want you to do things his or her way.  Be strong and stand up for yourself. 

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

There seems to be more money coming in to your future; however, you may have to decide what to do with it, whom to repay, or how to invest it to make it grow properly.  This is a time to chill as you have been handling much too many responsibilities lately and would just like everyone to leave you alone; however, that is not going to happen.  Why not go to a movie or sporting event with your significant other or close friend?  Make time for yourself as this will be the only thing that will help you attain your optimistic attitude once again.  Responsibilities seem to play an important role with close friends and family members.  Talk things over, discuss alternatives and then make your decisions about your next step.  Your helping attitude is a wonderful gift to others, but now it would be good for you to give the gift of fun, relaxation, and happiness to yourself. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Major changes seem to be on the horizon for you in your personal, business, partnership and career areas, all pivotal areas of life.  It would be extremely important to mend fences or let things go and move on; finally, do whatever it is you feel you’ve always wanted to do.  This is risky; however, it seems as if you want a total change of your surroundings and people in your life. Some areas of change could be your job, moving from your comfortable home to a new location, seeking new partners (or if not married, finally find a marriage partner) and changing your appearance in some fashion.  Friends will help you through the rough spots and be available to chat with you about your concerns; they are ready to help you, so allow them to assist you as you have helped them so many times in the past.  This would be a great time to use your tactfulness as you may be tempted to say exactly what you mean and then you’ll be in trouble, AGAIN. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Work should be kept at the office (or wherever you are employed) and when you come home, that time belongs to your significant other and family.  More quality time seems necessary with those you love.  They will appreciate your effort and try to be more understanding when you once again become the workaholic they are so used to having in their lives.  Getting ahead is important to you, but if you delegate some of your work, you will find the time you need to make everyone happy.  Don’t be too tight with your money as you will have it when you need it and you may deprive someone close to you of a simple pleasure that a small amount of money could bring them.  Have fun and lighten up!  I know you have tons of hard work ahead of you, but if you bring more balance in to your home life and career, things seem to go in a much stronger direction. 

AQUARIUS –  January 19 – February 17

Thinking in new creative ways help you have a flair for redecorating your home or landscaping your property.  You want to surround yourself with peaceful and beautiful things and flowers seem to be the answer for now.  Why not try a small water fountain in your home, or if you can afford it, in your yard where you can relax and/or meditate to the peaceful sounds of the gently flowing water.  You need to reconnect to spirit or get back to a place where you feel unstressed and comfortable with your life the way it is.  Romantic complications or confusion still worry you.  You are trying to find a happy medium between balancing your life with work and family.  You also seem to want to do things on your own; however, there just isn’t enough time.  Make time for yourself. Your energy level is drained and you seem to be handling all of the worries, doubts, fears and concerns of not only yourself, but of everyone else who can grab a minute of your time.  You need some down time away from everyone else’s problems; you need time to unwind and take care of your own life and the issues that are on your mind.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Relationships do not seem to make any sense and you feel as if something has to change.  Your actions and deeds do not reflect what you really feel inside your heart and you seem to struggle to understand what it is that you want out of life.  It’s fun to be with family and friends at times, but you must try to figure out what would make you really happy. Finances seem to be one area of life that will be improving so keep saving for that special purchase as your money grows. A change in career or direction seems likely as if work is not what it used to be.  Don’t make rash decisions as if you do not weigh the consequences of your decisions, you may be disappointed in the results.  Emotions seem fragile at this time, so try to deal with issues on a more analytical level so that you won’t be easily hurt.
