December Horoscopes 2017

Important Dates:  December 3, Advent Begins; the 7th, Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day; 13th, Hanukkah and the Geminids Meteor Showers; 21st Winter Solstice and Sun moves into Capricorn; 22nd Ursids Meteor Showers, 25th, Christmas Day; and the 26th, Kwanzaa.

Happy Hanukkah, Yule and Christmas to All!

There is not one universal holiday greeting for this time of the year.  There is Hanukkah, Yule and Christmas.  These three versions of this sacred holiday which tends to be different; however, all seem to center on sharing time with family and exchanging gifts to signify the love that we share among our families and close friendships.

What do you say during the holidays if you don’t know what proper phrase to use?  Do you still say Merry Christmas even if you don’t know if someone is Jewish?  I don’t think it really matters.  I was saddened when Merry Christmas became a thing of the past and Happy Holidays had caught on.  Yes, I respect other religions and their celebrations, but my holiday is Christmas, so why can’t I just say it?

There is the religious side to these holidays and going to a ceremony, church or temple and then there is the metaphysical side of the same holidays.  All are small pieces of the puzzle that makes our beliefs who we are and collectively, they form the beliefs of the human race.  Religion thinks on a larger scale.  It talks about our God, our Lord, the Universe, Jesus and the sacrifice Jesus made for all of us. Metaphysics is more about the overall spirituality of the season and what it represents throughout our lives, how it reflects on our loved ones that we have lost and deals with individual practitioners, family or local metaphysical groups with your same beliefs or perhaps esoteric churches where the dogma is not as stringent as in other religious institutions. Yule is called Yule or Yuletide (“Yule time”) is a festival observed by the historical Germanic people.  When it was Christianized after a few adaptations, it then turned into Christmastide. It then became a celebration of the Winter’s Solstice, December 21 with festive activities, feasting and fun.  They celebrated the nature aspects of the time.  Many celebrate in their own way with their own traditions and cultural based beliefs.

Whatever your belief system is, enjoy the holidays.  I don’t think it matters what you say to others during this festive time, but make the intent clear! Call up friends and family that haven’t been in your life for a while and assure them you want them in your lives.  Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Yule would be a nice way of breaking the ice, staying true to your beliefs and getting back in touch with those people who mean the world to you!

Happy 2018!!

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Career opportunities are plentiful and you are probably considering changing jobs or parts of your job that will bring you more attention, more income or where you will truly feel appreciated.  You will have fun, enjoy the celebrations and won’t think twice about spending more money than planned.  Keep to some type of budget.  Your attention is not on work at this time, but in planning all the wonderful shopping, parties, travel and fun you hope to have during this month.  Your practical side comes into play where you realize you need more rest and must limit the drain on your energy.  All in all, you are active, busy and having fun.  You are connecting with friends and family who love your company.

’TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

If you find yourself in unexpected circumstances, just know that you are being guided on a different path.  You may not wish to travel on this path; however, it would be in your best interest to at least look at the wonderful changes around you and the opportunities it will bring to you for future happiness, prosperity and good health.  Holiday travel seems important; family conflicts may arise but seem unimportant to you.  If you compromise, when appropriate, things should run quite smoothly. Don’t get into a battle of wits with your family and friends since this is the season of forgiveness. Change is good even though you may not feel it at the present time. 

“GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Home life tends to get less stressful as you try to plan the perfect holiday party.  Even though your life needs balance; you already know this and are trying to make positive adjustments.  However, you seem to have lots of friends and family members who are willing to volunteer their time to help. You may get annoyed when people question where your time is spent and that you may be able to organize your life better.  You do more than most of the other signs and would like to be acknowledged for that, but just be happy that you are able to run your life the way you want to.  You will have fun being invited to many get-togethers or at the very least, exchanging gifts with treasured friends and family. 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21
New beginnings in the home with redecorating or much needed repairs, help you focus on your goals.  You may be starting over or feel as if you need some positive changes quickly.  Differences of traditions and philosophies of life will be tested and you may be persuaded to look at other perspectives.  Even though you may want to stay home this holiday season, be adaptable if your partner wants to travel to visit family.  Staying home means you have to cook and entertain; however, it also makes you feel comfortable to be within your own home to do whatever you want to.  Using your intellect to make logical decisions rather than emotional ones will help you choose the better option.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

This is a good time to rejuvenate, relax and do whatever you feel is important for yourself.  As usual, you will go the extra mile for anyone in need.  This is also a time when you will take on the responsibility of a family issue.  Do the best you can to help those family members compromise; however, don’t beat yourself up if it does not go the way you feel it should.  You have done your best and sometimes things just have to work themselves out.  Arguing is probable if you let yourself get caught up in the politics of an issue.  Be aware of the explosive energy surrounding you and do your best to diffuse all negative situations.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

Holidays are needlessly stressful, so if you can relax and plan well in advance, your holiday celebrations will run quite smoothly.  Getting your list and checking it twice is a great way for a Virgo to start their holiday shopping.  Situations with personal and business partnerships may be confusing and upsetting at times, so be prepared to stand your ground and give your candid opinion in a tactful manner.  Career may be changing in many ways and it would be helpful for you to know in which direction you would like to proceed.  The energy around you is positive and open to so many wonderful possibilities to accomplish your future goals and dreams.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

You may wish to reconsider some of the more expensive gifts you have purchased and try to cut down a little bit on the grandeur of the season.  Consulting with a partner on financial choices or where you spend the family riches will allow you to spend more freely when you really need to buy things you need.  Much good energy is around you so plan what steps you would like to take to accomplish some dreams and goals.  Your personality shifts to being more self confident with less issues regarding insecurities and anxieties.  Career, travel and spiritual pursuits all seem to become important at the same time so be prepared to be scattered and yet, you will be having the time of your life exploring all the possibilities around you.  

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20

Be prepared to double check your travel plans as it seems as if there may be a small glitch that hinders you.   This does not mean that you should not travel, but it seems to be a time where extra planning and Plan B will keep everyone calm and in control of their holidays!  You just need a relaxation time where you can unwind; additionally, family time is suggested for your own enjoyment and well being.  You would like to plan things in advance and that’s a wonderful idea, but be flexible enough to know that all plans do not turn out exactly as we hope.  Many times, unexpected changes can be more fun than our original plans.  Have an adventurous time!

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

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

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

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

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17

Your creative and artistic abilities are intensified during this festive season so don’t be afraid to show off your abilities to all. You may wish to kick back and unwind during the holidays and not have the traditional holiday meals or parties with your family.  You may wish to keep a day for yourself where you could organize your home, entertain other family members or friends or just relax and watch the blinking lights on the Christmas tree or other holiday decorations.  Energy abounds and you wish to accomplish more.  You have done enough!  Limit yourself to a few tasks per day so you can re-energize and continue on the fast track that you have been living on for the last year.    

œPISCES – February 18 – March 19

You will be given alternatives to your original ideas.  Do not dismiss them or give up the opportunities that these changes are suggesting.  They may be much better than your original plans.  If circumstances seem confusing or dramatic, this is the best time to take that energy and turn it into a positive result.  The negativity around you is disappearing and you need to reinforce the positive energy that you know is protecting and guiding you to do the right thing.  Love issues may be a tender spot, so understand what the issue is and then do something to resolve it.  Using your mental agility will help you to optimistically deal with any concerns that come your way.  Career issues may be pushed to the foreground and some very important decisions about your future will need to be made. If you need to make adjustments to goals, now is the time to make them.

November Horoscopes 2017

Important dates: November 1, All Saints Day; 7th, Election Day; and the 23rd, Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving Day is one of the most traveled holidays of the year and it is any wonder that it is? This day signifies being with family and friends whom you love and want a relationship with even though you may be separated by distance throughout the year, whether for college reasons, a new career or a spouses job change, we all try to come together during the holidays to be with the people we love.

Being through personal difficulties since December 28th when my father passed from pneumonia, then my brother unexpectedly died of a stroke while I was having hip surgery in January, a very good friend passed on St. Patrick’s Day and a woman (my first astrology teacher, Freda Flood who had been like a second mom to me for 48 years), died on Memorial Day, I now fully understand what Thanksgiving is all about. Its about being surrounded by those who make you who you are. Its being around the people who have always supported you when perhaps no one else did, or those who were always there no matter what the circumstances. Its about people loving you for you and not for your accomplishments, your status or how much money you had in the bank. It is about unconditional love between the two of you that no external force could change.

I encourage you to be with your relatives and friends during this holiday season and be grateful for them, even if you think theyre strange or odd! Embrace them. Because once theyre gone, you will no longer have their wisdom, knowledge, love, compassion and friendship to guide you through the rest of your life. I miss my family and friends a great deal, but they will always live on in my heart. My sincere wish for you is to have all those people whom you love with you on Thanksgiving Day and for the rest of the holidays. Show them your love; its important.

ARIES – March 20 April 18

Get ready for many family discussions about the holidays and other matters that keep you on your toes. You thought a lot of this madness was behind you; however, you have a little bit more to go. Deal with issues as they happen and dont respond as you always do react instead. The calmer you remain, the calmer the situation will be. This is a great time to get things settled with siblings and family members in general. If having the holidays at your home, be prepared ahead of time and dont let others tell you what you should have or who you should invite. It is time to set some boundaries. Finances may be too confusing now to make a final decision on what needs to be done, but start the process going.


TAURUS – April 19 May 19

You are surprised, but family life seems to improve. You are getting your way about holiday plans and are deciding whether or not to have the Thanksgiving dinner at your home. If not practical, you may be deciding what you need to make for the occasion and take it to another family members home. For a holiday season, you tend to be a bit under the weather or somewhat depressed. Maybe its the holidays, but it seems as if you need to get things decided in your life and you may even have to move on with or dismiss plans that you have already made. Career gets crazy and you feel as if you are overburdened with stress and continuous questions from people who could not possibly know what you are going through.

GEMINI – May 20 June 20

Love issues may be stirring and you may have to make some difficult decisions about your romantic future. Being too sensitive now will not help you decide what you need to do to be happy. Handle your concerns with intellect and logic and you will make perfect decisions. Your creativity and artistic abilities are proven over and over again. You get into so many different areas of expertise that you sometimes even amaze yourself. Asking what you could make or bring to a family gathering will be very much appreciated, but if you are too busy, stopping at a gourmet bakery or fruit shop will keep you in good graces. Its the thought that counts.

CANCER – June 21 July 21

Even though you may be invited out or having a special get together at your home for the holidays, make sure you have plenty of alone time to spend with the one you love. You may need some special time together to get over any disagreements or things that have not been settled. Partnerships are going well. Different viewpoints need to be considered and a compromise that will benefit both of you would be best. Career is going well and there may even be some interesting changes that you will be quite surprised with. This is a good time to stand up for yourself and let others know that you now have boundaries which they may not cross.

LEO – July 22 August 21

Be efficient, effective, and organized this month. People are depending upon you. Money issues can be dealt with properly and easily if you just realize that some habits may have to change. You can be the most delightful host/hostess when you want to be, so put on that smile, make the best dinner you could possibly make and if there are any negative people at your gathering, ignore them for the sake of the holiday. There’s always one to bring everyone else down, but it is not going to happen to you this year. You are prepared, you feel energized and ready for anything. Keep the peace within the family and especially keep an eye on your partner.

VIRGO – August 22 September 21

Many new positive changes will affect you and your partner. Money issues may really start to annoy the both of you as it is being spent without thinking what your partner would say. Some compromise and good conversation are all that is needed to deflate the possible explosion of emotion. If money is tight during the holidays, you can always ask family and friends to bring a side dish or dessert (as well as their favorite drink) to your holiday dinner. Many people do this, so join the club so you do not have to get stressed out. Your creativity and innovative ideas will help get you that promotion or more responsibility for more money that you’ve been dreaming of.

LIBRA September 22 October 22

You seem to be very sensitive and overly emotional now. Nothing is as bad as all that and you know you can handle life if you take care of things one thing at a time or one day at a time. Handle the responsibilities and obligations you were meant to. The holidays should actually make you feel more confident about your life; getting into the spirit with decorations and gift giving will be an absolute joy for you. Partnerships confuse you and you just need to be more self confident and gather up your inner strength and courage to make important decisions. Do not procrastinate too long on important decisions because some of the opportunities will pass you by. Traveling for the holidays is a possibility if you can find the money and decide on where you would like to go.

SCORPIO – October 23 November 20

There is much intense energy going on in your life especially in career. Good opportunities are on their way and there may even be a raise or promotion in the near future. If having any festivities at your home, be sure to do a little each day so that you are not overwhelmed at home. You need to clean the house one day, prepare food on the next day and then cook everything on the third. You will be so organized that you will amaze others with your organizational skills. In this way, you may also join your guests because everything will be ready ahead of time. There seems to be an abundance of good luck and interesting decisions that will lead you into new beginnings and new ventures. Be open to change.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 December 20

Think of inviting friends to your home that may not have anywhere to go during the holidays. Even if you are fortunate enough to have family and friends around you, not everyone does, so count your blessings. Friendships will be very important now, so be prepared to know who is or is not your friend. When new people come into your life that seems as if they want to be your new best friend, be very careful about telling them many secrets. Deception, secrets and talking behind your back (gossip from jealousy or envy) is very probable. Stand up for yourself and dont pretend you dont know it exists. If you dont stand up for yourself, it just gets worse. Saving more can help you long term. Just buy what you need and not what you want at this time.

CAPRICORN – December 21 January 18

There seems to be a total change in the way you perceive things; you also want to change what you are not happy with. Your personal style, wardrobe and perhaps even holiday decorations or traditions are all equally on the chopping block. Caps want to looker younger, thinner, and healthier and so you start many new regiments of a healthier you from exercising to eating better. You are also trying to be calmer and may even want to study meditation or learn how to contact your angels for whatever blessings you need in your life. As far as the holidays, it depends on what you want to do now. It seems like a small intimate dinner for Thanksgiving is on the agenda. You are getting tired of too many people around you, especially those who are always needy and asking you for favors.

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17

You are so good with money and you are doing even more in budgeting what you have and trying to get the most of your funds. The holidays are going to be a bit more frugal this year (as with most people), but you are going to shop at sales, auctions, flea markets and thrift stores and will do very well. If having the Thanksgiving holiday at your home, be decisive and ask others to bring the things you will need to make your generosity go a little bit further. A bottle of liquor or appetizers are always a nice way for others to participate in the holiday. Do you want to start your own home-based business? Many decisions need to be made so you can move forward without any interruption in your routine. You need to leave the stress behind.

PISCES February 18 March 19

Your finances seem to be going in a much better direction if you dont do something ridiculous like gamble or play the lottery. Keep extra funds in a bank so you can save to have whatever it is you need. This is not the time to buy anything that you want now and you can get those items by just putting them on your Christmas list. If Thanksgiving is at your home, why not make it fun by having an early afternoon buffet lunch and then having finger foods later in the day with coffee and desserts. This type of set up will keep the pressure off of you and will allow others to mingle and chat with one another. You may want to learn many different religions or metaphysical subjects or just may want to take new classes that will help you on a spiritual level.

October Horrorscopes 2017

Important dates:  Sukkoth and Harvest Moon on the 5th, Columbus Day on the 9th, United Nations’ Day 24th and Orionids meteor showers on the 24th and Halloween/Samhain on the 31st.

Samhain is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the “darker half” of the year. Traditionally, it is celebrated from 31 October to 1 November, as the Celtic day began and ended at sunset.

Also called:  Samhuinn/Samhainn (Scottish Gaelic); Sauin (Manx Gaelic).

Celebrations:  Bonfires, guising/mumming, divination, feasting, trick or treating.

Significance: End of the harvest season, beginning of winter. 

As millions of children and adults participate in the fun of Halloween on the night of October 31st, few will be aware of its ancient Celtic roots in the Samhain (Samain) festival. In Celtic Ireland about 2,000 years ago, Samhain was the division of the year between the lighter half (summer) and the darker half (winter). At Samhain, the division between this world and the other world was at its thinnest, allowing spirits to pass through.

The family’s ancestors were honored and invited home whilst harmful spirits were warded off. People wore costumes and masks to disguise themselves as harmful spirits and thus avoid harm. Bonfires and food played a large part in the festivities. The bones of slaughtered livestock were cast into a communal fire, household fires were extinguished and started again from the bonfire. Food was prepared for the living and the dead, food for the ancestors who were in no position to eat it, was ritually shared with the less well off.

Christianity incorporated the honoring of the dead into the Christian calendar with All Saints (All Hallows) on November 1st, followed by All Souls on November 2nd. The wearing of costumes and masks to ward off harmful spirits survived as Halloween customs. The Irish emigrated to America in great numbers during the 19th century especially around the time of potato famine in Ireland during the 1840’s. The Irish carried their Halloween traditions to America, where today it is one of the major holidays of the year. Other traditions through time have blended into Halloween, for example the American harvest time tradition of carving pumpkins.*

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Some personal changes seem to be on the horizon as well.  You are thinking with more determination and showing more persistence in what you want to do. You are taking the bull by the horns and doing what you feel is right for you.  The work place needs to be more nurturing as it is currently a place of stress, exhaustion and never-ending tasks and responsibilities.  It would be in your best interest if you could rest more, go out with friends or family, and have a good time. Home life may bring some unexpected changes which will take you by surprise.  In the end, these are good changes which push you into an environment or situation which is much more positive than your current circumstances.

’TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

This is a month where you can truly have some fun with your family and friends.  Romance is also very interesting now.  Your schedule is tiresome.  You work long hours and they need to be adjusted for better health. You over do everything. Your friends may cause you some issues and as usual you have to save the day, but all in all, a good month filled with some surprises, good luck and lots of activity.  You will be going places, having guests visit your home and you may even host a Halloween party at the last minute. You don’t have to do all the cooking or entertaining.  Ask friends to bring their special gourmet dish so that everyone shares in the cooking expense.

“GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Getting in touch with your feminine side is important to understand why you help so many.  You are the caregiver or caretaker of your family and friends.  Focus on your goals and dreams, move towards them a little each day and before you know it, you have reached your dreams and have proved to everyone that you can do whatever it is you want to do.  Relationships seem to blossom and are progressing smoothly. Business and personal partnerships (marriage included) go in a much more positive direction; however, you may be thinking of a time to change partners in a relationship if you are bored or feel as if the oomph has left your relationship.  The choice is yours. 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21
Update all important papers when you have the time. Getting your finances in order is a good thing.  Friends will get you out of the house and encourage you to have fun.  There is so much you want to accomplish, so start with one project or task at a time and soon you will have many projects done.  This is a time to show your creativity and craftsmanship with Halloween costumes for the little ones or for yourself if you go out with your friends.  This is a great time to start making presents for the December holiday gift giving season. Homemade gifts are always appreciated and remembered.

•LEO – July 22 – August 21
Dealing with women can be interesting as it seems that arguing is eminent.  Be careful of your words because you apparently annoy some of the women in your life.  It’s a good time to travel or continue with your studies towards a degree or certification.  This is an amazing time to buckle down and study hard as the rewards will be greater than you thought.  It’s also a time where your philosophies of life may change, whether religious, spiritual or mundane; you are looking at life from many different perspectives.  Ideas that you thought you believed may surprise you and you seem to be turning towards another belief or point of view.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21
You need to change something important in your life. Be direct, get answers, change what needs to be changed and move forward in a very positive manner.  Everything is before you now, so handle those responsibilities and deliver on your promises to others. Your career is interesting and challenging at the same time.  You are interested in furthering your career, but are unsure if it will be in the same field or with the same company.  The options are all around you and you will do well in either your current company or finding employment elsewhere.  Your contribution to either will be beneficial.  You have ambition now and do not want to be at the bottom of the ladder. 

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

This is a month where you shine in almost everything you do.  Librans are feeling a sense of total accomplishment.  Even though many recent changes have made you take another path, this is a good thing.  You will be self-sufficient and learn how to make good decisions for yourself now.  You are happy, feel confident and your self-esteem level is at an all-time high.  You are pursuing things that you left on the back burner for too long and getting so many things done. Thinking about travel, fun, doing things differently and making important decisions are all on your mind.

˜SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20
Friends, groups and associations are important now as well as getting to know who your true friends are and who are the ones who use you on a regular basis.  Even though many of the changes in your life the last couple of months are of your doing, things are still a bit confused and unsettled.  Big changes take a long time to get used to and to work properly.  Helping out your family and friends seem to be your never-ending lot in life, but at some point, you need to take care of yourself.  You may experience a bit of sadness or depression since you feel that you have trusted so many around you and find out that there have been a few betrayals.  You will bounce back because you do have so many other wonderful people in your life who truly love and care for you.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

What a great month to reinvent yourself.  Get a makeover, or perhaps a new hair cut or color.  It doesn’t have to be a party for anything in particular, but just have the people around you who mean a lot to you. It’s a great time to catch up and find out what has been going on in everyone’s lives. So many positive changes are coming your way within your home life and/or career. For you snowbirds, it’s time to get everything organized and focused for your six- month trek down South for the winter.  You feel refreshed and exuberant about your life and want others to share the joy you feel at this time.  Have a party to show how much you appreciate your family and friends.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Family relationships improve as long as you don’t talk about money. Sibling relationships in particular start to take on a new, closer direction.  A lot of good fortune and luck will be available to you now, so it would be good if you planned in which areas of your life you will take a chance, move forward or change something that isn’t quite right.  Getting expert opinions about how to make your money grow would be a positive step to ensuring your future financial security.  Figuring out what you can and cannot do would be an important step to realizing how you can live your life without draining your resources.

AQUARIUS – January 19 — February 17

Family is important now.  Helping out where you can is very much appreciated. Being drained is not going to help you achieve your goals.  Limit the amount of time you talk to those who really need your help as they are draining the life out of you. Being tired at work is unacceptable and will make your performance on the job mediocre, so you do need to get a good night’s sleep.  Let your troubles and negative thoughts leave you when it is bedtime.  You are always there for the underdog anyway or ready to help a family member with any issue or concern that comes their way.  Be sure that you also take care of yourself as well.

œPISCES – February 18 – March 19
What a wonderful time to start an art or music class. You seem to be very artistic and creative, so whatever you feel are your strengths should now be recognized and nurtured.  You have unbelievable talent in many areas, but you need to focus that energy on finding out what your passion is so you will always enjoy what you create.  Teaching others your creative gifts would be a blessing to so many. Things may not always be the way they seem.  You are being drawn into obscure and bizarre circumstances with family, friends and neighbors.  It is up to you to make sure that everyone is on the same page or at the very least sees reality in these areas of conflict or difficulty.  Speak carefully to others as you may feel it is imperative to tell a fib or two and then you will get caught.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Luck is behind you if you stand firm and decide you are going to make your life more positive and happy. Consider what steps you need for a happier and healthier life and start going in that direction a little each day. You feel a bit overwhelmed and confused about your direction in life and perhaps the universe is doing you a favor by forcing you to choose and/or make some important decisions. Creativity, romance and children are all being dealt with in a positive manner.  If you are in a rut or are doing the same thing over and over again with little results, it’s no wonder that the universe is pushing you into a new direction.

’TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

This is a great time to start new beginnings, perhaps look into buying a home instead of renting or to get a better job rather than being upset all of the time at your current one. It seems you are thinking about changing jobs because of office politics or because you feel you deserve more money.  It is about time that people give back some of the time and energy you have given them throughout the years. Health and partnerships go hand in hand this month. Pay attention to details so life can move in a forward direction. Even though times are extremely busy and confusing, there is a period where you will be lucky and things will expand beyond your dreams.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Romantic and business partnerships are on the agenda.  How do they seem to be going?  Did you need to change an aspect or two?  Handling important paperwork also makes you get more organized and prepared for what life may bring you.  You are a very busy person who may at times make more work for yourself than is necessary.  Make time for fun.  You can’t work 24 hours a day although you feel that you need to get ahead.  Try to pay off debt or at least pay things on time to avoid late charges.  You are trying to save for certain items or at the very least want to accumulate some money in the bank for financial security. The old cliché is true, “Take time to smell the roses” before they’re gone. 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

Higher education and your ability to understand new philosophies or religion will be tested.  You may be considering changing your major, course or school.  Take some time to book a trip to an event you’ve always wanted to attend or to a seminar or expo you think you would benefit from. Go to your local library for some free classes on subjects you’ve always wanted to study. You are curious about so many things, but don’t seem to have the time to do much about your passion to learn. Taking on-line courses may be the way to go as you can study in the comfort of your own home in your pajamas, if you wish, and with no makeup. 

LEO – July 22 – August 21

Creativity is at a high point so take advantage of this energy and passion.  Be sure whatever you get involved in is legal, thought through and that you are not living in denial.  This is also a time where you may feel that things couldn’t get more confusing or crazy, but you are wrong!  Life is exciting now with many new positive opportunities for you to grab if you are ready to go onto your next big life’s adventure. Long distance travel may be important now, so if you haven’t taken the trip you wanted to over the summer, this may be the time.  Prices are down and the crowds are minimized.  Good luck coming to you from your career.  

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

You will have a good deal of opportunities to prove to upper management that you are right for a new position.  Be on guard, everyone is watching you to see if you are worthy of a promotion or transfer which includes more money.  So many wonderful options are given to you about your future career or work-related life. You feel better about so many things in your life and really feel as if you are doing a good job with whatever you are trying to accomplish.  Your future looks bright and you have so many wonderful chances to make your life the way you truly want it, so go for it.  

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

Friends are important now.  They seem to bring you good luck and will help you with whichever problems or issues you have.  This is also a great time to organize and materialize your hopes, dreams and wishes.  You take on too much and one of these days you will finally understand that others need to help you for a change and that you don’t always have to be the one to volunteer or take care of others. This is a time for you to handle your own responsibilities and to work hard to reach your goals.  Make sure you also take care of yourself by resting regularly.  You also seem to be very sensitive and have too much on your mind.  Instead of saying, “No, thanks, I can do it myself,” you are now going to say, “Yes, thank you.”  

˜SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20

There seems to be a lot of responsibilities on your shoulders and you are getting a bit angrier about not having the help you should from family.  You are ready for some changes in your life, but you have to find the areas of life you want changed and then do something about it.  It just won’t happen on its own. You may be just a little harder to get along with than usual because you have so much on your mind that you are not thinking about winning a popularity contest as well.  Life may throw you some curve balls, but you’ve been down this road before and know how to handle stress and responsibilities.  This is no different other than you will be stronger and more dedicated to getting what you want as you feel it is your turn to shine. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

Take a new course, enjoy a lecture or teach a class in which you have an expertise.  Many changes are coming in the way you view yourself and your life.  You are coming out of your shell to meet the world and see what it has to offer.  The difficult times seem to be a thing of the past.  Money issues continue to on your mind so deal with personal finances as quickly as possible.  They keep you busy.  Deal with the issues that need your immediate attention and let the other issues stay on the back burner for now.  Remember that your projects are the most important even though you wish to help others.  Time management is imperative now if you want to accomplish everything. Writing or artistic projects take the center stage.  

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Dealing with finances is a good thing.  You are making your financial decisions more logically and analytically than ever before.  Get everything in order once and for all.  Things lying around the house aren’t helping you to plan a bright new future.  Financial issues need to be addressed and if you decide that money has to be moved into something safer, or if you wish to save more, and spend less, etc., this is the time you need to do it.  Your dreams are being manifested easily so you may wish to be sure what you want in your life before you start attracting things that may not be in your best interest.

AQUARIUS – January 19 — February 17

This is a time for you to enjoy your life and not stress over the small stuff, so just let things go that don’t need to be in your life.  If work isn’t going your way, it may be time to look for something else to do for a living.  Things seem to change on a daily basis.  What a great time to sit down and write a book, in your journal or plan some short trips you have wanted to take for a very long time.  Communication with those you love is important now.  Be sure you are calm when you discuss volatile matters since you can’t take back things that you say even if you apologize for them.  This is also a time when you are running on empty.

œPISCES – February 18 – March 19

Work and home life seem to be at odds, but with some clever thought, you can turn life around to suit your needs.  However, it does not mean that you should stand idly by and do nothing about your own future. You know better. Creativity and artistic abilities are your friends this month.  You are perhaps redecorating your home or doing something very creative to make your home feel fantastic.  Home life starts to fall into place now.  Things that you feel you need in your life are a real possibility if you get up the initiative to follow through with plans and dreams.  Life is interesting and confusing at the same time.

August 2017 Horoscopes

Important dates this month:  the Lunar Eclipse on the 7th and the Solar Eclipse on the 21st.

The Solar and Lunar Eclipses

Both the solar and lunar eclipses this month are in positive signs.  The male or positive signs are Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius.  All other signs are considered to be the feminine or negative signs.  The solar eclipse is in Leo and the lunar eclipse is in Aquarius.  It has been some time that eclipses helped the positive signs.  In fact, it has been years since we have had a positive solar eclipse and that is why so many signs have been experiencing negativity, problems, hurdles, added responsibilities, depression, upset, fears, doubts, worries and anxieties.  When an eclipse is not in your positive or negative group, it does not give you ample opportunity or positive energy to make things go your way.  Things get blown out of proportion and life gets difficult.  They could result in issues with: family, partners, work, health or money and so many other areas of life.  Now you know one of the reasons why life isn’t treating you fairly.

But now that the eclipses are in positive signs, it will help us understand and resolve so many issues that we have lived with for far too long.  It will mend relationships, whether romantic, friendships or career, and it will help us sort out what our next steps in life should be.  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 you 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 is February 15, and then July 13 and August 11 in 2018.  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.  Make it a special day and your next six months will also be that special.  Even if you are a negative sign, whatever you are doing on that 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.  Read article on www.vikkianderson.net under Articles to see all the things you should and should not do on an eclipse.  Make it a great one!

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Your focus is changing dramatically.  You are now getting much more serious about your health, diet and exercise as well as perhaps getting into some charities so you can serve others.  Being so blessed, you want to share the blessings to the unfortunate.  Put time and energy in having some fun, romance, dealing with children or spending more time with them and generally having a wonderful time no matter what you’re doing.  Emotions are strong now and you seem so sensitive.  No one is out to get you and you really just need to calm down and see the real issues in front of you.  Your friends are there to back you up with any decision you make, but be sure to think things through carefully before making major decisions.  Dealing with romantic partners in a positive light seems like a great way to clear the path for a positive future together.  Handling limitations, responsibilities and obligations work in your best interest since you can use your intelligence to talk things through and compromise in many areas.  This seems to be a time where you are ready to leave the routine past behind and are ready for lots of fun.

’TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

Concentrating on your health is a good thing if it gets you to a doctor, otherwise, what’s the point.  So many issues can go wrong, so be sure to get a clean bill of health so you can continue to make your romantic relationships blossom.  Dealing with budgets, finances and career issues may be somewhat confusing and stressful, so this would be a great time to relax and make plans with family or friends.  You need to make many decisions. Make them! You are doing what you can do to make the situations in these areas as positive as possible, but your worry makes you rehash old issues. There seems to be so many unexpected expenditures in the near future that it would seem wise to hold off from buying all the things you want. Friends and family would love to help, but you seem to be much too secretive now and are not easily sharing your feelings or concerns.

“GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Relationships (business, personal, romantic, friendships) are all highlighted this month.  Are you happy with these relationships or do some need to be adjusted or curtailed?  This is a perfect time to get more training or formal education.  You can also study about new and interesting traditions and philosophies.  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 would be great.  Even though you are juggling many projects, it does seem to be a wonderful time to take a few relaxing or fun classes.  You seem to have so many fears and worries around you and you must let many of them go. 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

Stop worrying about finances and what you need to buy.  Whichever items you definitely need must be purchased for the good of your family and yourself.  However, don’t be an Ebenezer Scrooge.  Keep planning whatever vacations or getaways you wanted, but make sure you are getting the best price possible for accommodations and flights.  Many changes are coming your way and you should be prepared to make many good choices.  See whichever opportunities make the most sense and check them out.  As long as they seem appropriate, take them as you will be surprised at how fast you will be on the right road to a prosperous future while attracting more positive energy and opportunities. Your personal magnetism attracts many special people into your life which may be long term relationships of both friends and partners. Relationships improve. Everything you touch now turns to gold, so go for it!  Many new opportunities will be given to you so grab them or they will pass you by.

•LEO – July 22 – August 21

Career, education and philosophies are accentuated this month.  Vacations to far away shores are also highlighted for business or personal travel.  Foreigners in some way will come into your life and this is a great time to learn from another culture. Time to rise and shine.  You have so much to accomplish, but may be planning to do it all later since the nice weather is upon us.  Do one or two things daily so at the end of the week or month, you can see that you have accomplished much and will not feel guilty about taking off a day or two to relax and have fun.  You may be thinking in an exceptionally creative way to bring in romantic energy, 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 in which you wish to participate.  Long distance travel seems favored, so why not take a long-needed vacation?  

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

You are getting more logical, analytical and logical about work.  You don’t want anything to go wrong within your career so you are stepping up and doing “too much” extra work.  Superiors are appreciative of your work, so just keep doing whatever it is you are doing.  You don’t have to strive to be a one person team!  Friends are important now, so make sure you know who are your true friends and who are using you for some reason.  One of the lessons you should learn now is that friends will give you reciprocal energy and help you whenever you need assistance rather than always taking from you.  Weeding out those who exhaust you would be in your best interest.  Many decisions need to be made, so think about them carefully before making them.  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.  This seems like a good time to talk things over at work and at home with those important to you so you both parties are clearly understood.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

Friendships, groups, associations, hopes, dreams and wishes are emphasized, so do whatever you can on the eclipse to make a wish list of what you want to happen for yourself and perhaps your partner, family or children, during the next six months.  Be proactive is asking for direction to issues, a path to take for harmonious relationships, or in controlling your finances a little bit better.  Whatever the issue, make a concerted effort to be positive and full of hope on the eclipse so your wishes may come true.  Your decisiveness will be challenged.  Even though you do not have an easy time making decisions, it is imperative that you stop procrastinating and decide in which direction you really want to go. Be assertive, take the risk and move forward. Staying in a procrastination energy field will only attract more negativity and make you feel as if you don’t have any options left.  Much activity seems to push you into many directions that you never thought you would go.  You are just too trusting of everyone, but you must remember that not everyone is as honest 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.

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20

This is the month that changes come to you for your own best interest.  Perhaps you have felt the changes starting to occur.  You want to look a bit different and think more logically about so many things that are going on in your life.  Picking up new books with interesting topics will also be of interest to you.  Finances may be strained or you are saving for an object or project that is very important to you.  Nevertheless, you should budget your money carefully and only spend what you deem appropriate for the things you need.  Being very determined and persistent will help you get what you want, but you really have to be serious about your goals and objectives.  So many issues seem to be coming up around your financial security and choices that it may seem overwhelming.  You need time for yourself to rejuvenate and relax.  Why not go to a movie or sporting event with your significant other or close friend?  Responsibilities seem to play an important role this month with close friends and family members.  Talk things over, discuss alternatives and then make your decisions about your next step.   

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

Money is the issue this month whether you must learn how to spend it or save it properly, dealing with inheritances, or that money is coming into your hands, but just as quickly, it is going out.  Budgets are the best thing for you to follow now.  Family issues keep you in a constant state of flux.  You have so many good intentions and plans that may be thwarted on some level.  You seem to have to take care of many responsibilities and obligations, but in the long run, once you handle these situations now you will have more time to concentrate on your leisure time activities and fun.  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.  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 done so many times in the past.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Family issues need to be dealt with and resolved.  Knowing that something is wrong within the family structure may not be that easy to believe, but you must get people talking to one another to resolve problems or hurt feelings.  It is a good time to write, read, start new endeavors, learn new programs on the computer and to rest a bit so you can have fun.  Home life and family can be challenging and there is just so much going on that is makes you a bit puzzled about your next steps.  Should you let others handle their issues or should you get involved? Does it make sense for you to try to handle more responsibilities or do you feel that others should take the responsibility for their actions?  Home and business life needs to be balanced.  More quality time seems necessary with those you love.  Your loved ones, especially children, will relish the thought of being able to play with their parent(s) or go on outings together.  This will increase bonding and relationships will change in a most positive way. 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.  Have fun and lighten up!

AQUARIUS – January 19 — February 17

Communication is important now so be strong and talk to the person(s) that have offended you or who didn’t understand what you saying a short while ago.  Make things right.  Deal with any hurt feelings (both yours and others) and try to decide how you should handle it.  You are not one for confrontation; however, it would be great to get all of the hurt feelings or misunderstandings out of the way. Career choices and home life seem to be at odds again.  You have too much to do in both areas of life and your health seems to be suffering.  A bit more rest will do wonders for your stamina and general overall health.  Thinking in new creative ways helps you have a flair for redecorating your home or landscaping your property.  You want to surround yourself with peaceful and beautiful things and flowers or a vegetable garden seem to be the answer for now.  You need to reconnect to spirit.  Prayer and meditation will help you find your way. Your energy level is drained, so why are you handling the problems of others?  You need some down time away from everyone else’s issues; you need time to unwind and take care of your own life and the issues that are on your mind.

œPISCES – February 18 – March 19

Home life seems to be the main interest this month.  You should take time to see where you can improve your home or sacred space and make it more cozy and warm.  Do you need to give your home or apartment a facelift?  A new coat of paint can certainly make a dreary room sunny or you can start adding accessories with lively shades that match your color schemes.  This would also be a good time to deal with any leftover situations that have not been clarified or dealt with in some time.  Ignoring them won’t make them go away! Love life can make you crazy if you let it, but if you use your intellect and common sense you will be able to handle anything that comes your way.  Be very clear about your intent and let people know that you want to resolve any unfinished business quickly so that you will be attracting more positive energy into your life rather than negative.  Many changes seem to follow you around and you’re not quite sure what to do.  Relationships do not make sense any longer and you feel as if something has to change.  Your actions 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 at this time.  A career change seems likely so you may have a chance to follow your passion.

Breakthrough

Another original fairy tale by Vikki Anderson

Spring was here and the children were playing at the lake for the first time in months.  The winter had been harsh and although they skated upon the mirror like foundation of ice, it was more appealing to them in the spring and summer when they could fish, boat and swim.

The children were from a small town where everyone knew each other and all was safe and secure for the little Everyone in the glen knew how to swim; all knew how to boat and fish.  And the adults of the community had always encouraged safety above all else.

It was for this reason that the children were very upset when they heard cries of help from around the lake.  It was a very small voice.  A youngster’s voice indeed.  “Help, we can’t get out.  Please help us!”  The cries were so frantic and upsetting that the children decided to look around the lake in sections by groups of three.  The cries continued and the children were starting to cry.  “Help us.  Something is holding us down.  We can’t get up.  We can’t see the light.  Please help — anyone — help us!”

One of the oldest girls at the lake ran home, just on the other side of the lake, to get her parents.  They raced down to the awaiting children and also heard the cries for help.  They looked and looked, but couldn’t find anyone.  They searched under the bridge and thought the local troll may have captured one of their kind, but he was asleep.  They asked the water fairies for help and even though they are in competition with the earth fairies at times, they were very obliging and searched the length and depth of the lake to see if any other earth fairy was in trouble.  The earth fairies were puzzled and yet, the little voice cried out over and over again.  “We’re here, please help us.”

All of a sudden, one of the pebbles near the large oak tree slightly moved.  The pebble shaped crystal was about an inch in diameter; it looked quite heavy to move.  All the children helped the parent earth fairies push the crystal to one side after they struggled with it for a few minutes.

Immediately, a beautiful crocus sprung forth with brilliantly colored purple petals and a strong green stem stretching towards the mid-day sun.  One of the tiniest earth fairies anyone had ever seen popped out of the ground brushing himself off of excess dirt and grime.  “I couldn’t help the poor crocus bloom with that boulder in the way.  Thank you all for of your help,” and as quickly as he had appeared, he had vanished!

The children returned to playing near the water and tried to pick up as many “boulders” as they could to help any of the other flower fairies trying to help a bloom reach the sunlight in the rebirth of springtime.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

You feel on top of the world and want so much for yourself.  Now is the time to go and get what you want. What a wonderful time to start traveling or organizing a vacation for the summer.  Save up your money so you can have a vacation of a lifetime!  It’s also a time to take some classes in an area that you wish to study.  Adult education courses are fun, but your local library may have interesting lectures on subjects in which you may have an interest.   If procrastination comes your way, try to handle these issues one at a time and things will get done in a record amount of time.  Stop being so scattered.  It’s There is a lot of activity and action.  You can’t sit still and need to be on the go!  You may be a little more assertive than usual in getting what you want.  Your impatience keeps you from seeing the big picture and you may lose out on something special.  Friends may ignore your impulsive faux pas but you will notice that you are doing and saying things that may not be in the best interest of everyone involved.  Think before you speak because you may stick your foot in your mouth upon occasion without really knowing it until it’s too late, and don’t jump into things just because they “seem” great.  Wait until you carefully look into each situation by gaining more information or background on a person or circumstance.  Do not take anyone’s word for important matters – again, double check everything and have agreements signed and filed away so you can find and use them in the future if needed. There will be nice changes for the future and possibly some foreign travel (or at least travel over oceans) for you and your family.  You may wish to have some alone time because you handle everything and you are exhausted.  A past emotional event may now be on your mind.

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

Deciding your future towards your career is paramount now. Many things get in the way of accomplishing your goals and ambitions at this time.  You need to rest, make a plan and start going after your dreams in an organized fashion.  Hectic schedules, late hours and lack of sleep make you fatigued and somewhat irritable. You may be thinking of changing jobs or even careers.  This is a time when you should be absolutely sure about any major changes you want to make.  If you are dissatisfied with work, make sure you find another job before giving notice.  Remember, other companies or jobs may have the same issues as your current position, but you have a history with your firm and probably some kind of seniority.  Just be sure that you really dislike your job so much that you are willing to make an uncertain change.  Do background investigations and talk to people who work there.  It will give you a more accurate view of the company you are likely to interview with and may be employed by.  Try to fit some downtime into your daily life even if it is only for 10-20 minutes.  Towards the end of the month, you do seem to find time to get away for a few days or at the very least have some time to yourself to accomplish many things that have been put on the back burner.  Your creativity and artistic interests are making you feel as if you would like to take another class or just get back into doing something creative.  Be extra careful when spending your hard-earned money since it seems it is going out faster than it is coming back in.  Dealing with children, elements of fun and excitement and games of chance may also be on the agenda.  Just remember not to spend money you do not have as it will come back to haunt you.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

This is a time where you feel like meeting new people and also bringing new friends into your life.  It seems as if your friendships are not as close as they once were and you are interested in expanding your circle of friends.  Join local groups, committees and volunteer at your church or organizations that mean a lot to you.  Friends are very important and you reconnect with some of them who you may have lost touch with who were very important to you in the past.  You may go through bouts of indecision and confusion about your future.  Major decisions about a relationship still have to be made although you don’t want to upset the apple cart now.  Once you make up your mind about important decisions, do not change them.  You want to make intelligent and logical decisions, not ones filled with confusing emotions. You need to become more financially secure and even though you are moving in that direction, you really don’t have a clue about all the money you are spending on little things that are adding up and becoming a major expense.  You will be able to become stronger and more grounded with just a little effort.  Have a checkup if you’ve let it slip by.  If anything is found, it will be easily corrected.  Great opportunities to enhance your spiritual studies and life are just ahead of you, possibly by meeting new people in the field or by taking classes that you never thought you would.  Either way, you will be going in a much better direction and feel great peace of mind, body and spirit.

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

A very super-sensitive time for all Cancerians.  You will be thinking a lot about so many things that you may get upset or concerned at all the things you never got to do.  This may be a good time to anchor your religious or spiritual beliefs.  Meditation, prayer or going to yoga or other calming classes or workshops should be looked into to help you relax and think clearly about your responsibilities.  You are trying to fly beneath the radar and would prefer not to be so social. You would like some “alone time” to think about your life, goals, ambitions and dreams.  Think about your life and decide if you are on the same path you thought you would be at this stage of life.  Family life takes up a good deal of your time and you wonder if you are doing the best you can for your family.  It seems you question many things and hope that things will get better, or that you will get greater clarity on your direction and role in this lifetime.  There seems to be many changes on the horizon, but you are unsure of what these changes would do to your life and to those you love.  With your inner strength and confidence, you will be able to make positive decisions and choices now as you finally want the old life (or things from your past) to stay in the past.  Why not think about how you can make a better life for you and your family, handling your job better (or getting a new one, if you are unhappy) and dealing with your romantic partner on a more personal level.  You have much strength to handle anything that comes your way, so go get them, tiger!

LEO – July 22 – August 21

This is the time to shine.  You will get attention from many people for things that you do, whether positive or negative.  The choice is yours to be the best you can be and continue to help your family, friends and others with their issues and worries.  You will be a good sounding board for others who need someone to talk to, but set boundaries so you don’t get exhausted from giving all of your energy away.  Your personality is exuberant and you continue to excel in all of the things that are important to you. You are more interested in education, philosophy and perhaps even foreigner cultures or foreign travel.  If you wanted to plan an overseas trip, this is the time to do your research.  Leos may wish to get a makeover, change their wardrobes and update their look for the soon approaching summer weather.  Family issues make you wonder if you are really from your family.  They just seem to be on another path, but you must compromise and overlook any craziness that occurs.  Siblings may bring you some concern or you may have to help them through an issue.  Offer your guidance, strength, and opinions only when requested.  They are quite sensitive at this time and may not want to talk about things that are too emotional.  If you are without a sibling, it may be a friend who you consider family.  Dedication and patience will get you what you need and want now, but planning your results is always better than taking life as it comes.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

Good luck is coming to you through financial gain, prosperity and abundance.  If you are looking or a new job or an additional part time or home based position, this will surely help bring more income.  Try budgeting your finances as they need meticulous attention.  You need to save for particular projects or items, but you like to buy very nice things so the money comes in and goes out just very quickly if you are not careful. You get great ideas about what to do with your family issues and have too many ideas and then get confused.  Pick one or two or let the children decide what they want to do.  Have time for brunch or lunch with close friends that you don’t get to see any longer because of obligations and your busy life.  You are too serious now, so you need to lighten up and find some time for yourself.  If you don’t understand something, take time to look it over.  Take a deep breath and calm down. Do not procrastinate as you seem to be attracting negative energy by your lack of commitment to finish projects or chores.  If you change the way you feel and think about particular subjects (or life in general), things will run more smoothly and you will see that life is going in the right direction for yourself and everyone you care about.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

Family issues seem to be resolved and everyone is on the same page now.  Be sure to acknowledge everyone who has compromised.  You are being blessed now with good luck surrounding you, so how will you use it?  This is a perfect time to write that book or the poetry you’ve been meaning to jot down.  It’s an ideal time to communicate with those with whom you have lost touch and try to get to know close friends or family members again. You try so hard to be a good sport about everything, but the energy just isn’t with you now.  You may feel unhappy at times you may feel as if you are being taken for granted.  You may have relationship issues which keep you guessing and feel a bit shaken by recent emotional events.  Your emotions are in a state of flux although you are trying very hard to conceal them from everyone but your most trusted friends.  Playing the strong and independent person, you try to get over any heartache or issues that may have upset you; however, your best friends know you and are waiting to help you if you wish to confide in someone.  Your mind is on overload and you rethink things too much and may even be bringing on insomnia because your mind never rests.  Do not let your thoughts keep you up or run your life.  If you have unsettling thoughts that need to be looked at, write them down on a pad which you should keep next to your bed (or on the nightstand) and then deal with them in the morning.

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20

Home life may be strained somewhat so it is up to you to overlook the petty issues that are going around and keeping things on an even keel.  Do not get wrapped up in drama and try to see the comical side of things.  Laughter will help you deal with life much easier and it will relax you rather than getting all tied up in knots about things you can’t change.  Be the philosophical person you try to be.  Home life is hectic, you are exhausted and wish you could retire (or at the very least take some time off from your responsibilities and obligations).  Be very careful with your health as you may catch colds because you are not resting as much as you should.  Pamper yourself a little bit or let someone else do it for you as you always do for them.  Relationships may be unpredictable now, but it is a temporary thing.  You should have a date night, spend some time together watching TV or going to the movies and regaining your ability to communicate on an intimate level.  Perhaps starting creative projects or working on your hobbies will bring much needed relaxation.  It seems as if it has been a long time since you’ve created something that you are proud of.  Be sure that your home and career are not at odds.  Your willingness to do what is necessary at work until work is completed is admirable, but are you being appreciated?  Also, you are needed just as much at home, so try for more balance between the two so that everyone is happy with you.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

Fun and romance may have to wait for another month.  Be very careful about what you actually say to a loved one as it may be taken in the wrong light; fighting and unnecessary strife will ensue.  Pay more attention to sports, hobbies or personal interests so that other issues won’t phase you.  Staying busy and active is a good cure to help you decide what you should be involved in and what you shouldn’t.  Fun, children and constant activity is on the horizon for you.  You may be overwhelmed and exhausted because you have not planned out the month very well, so hop to it.  Make sure you write in your day timer or calendar that you need time for yourself or for you and your partner to relax or just have some fun.  Intimate communication may need improvement.  You may need to ask important questions to someone in your family so that you get a proper response.  Don’t guess what is wrong because you may guess incorrectly.  However, communication with others does not seem to be an issue for you since it seems you will talk to anyone about countless topics – you just have so much to tell others that you are very gregarious.  You are funny and do have fun with family and friends; however, be careful not to spend too much money on gambling or speculation because circumstances can seem too good to be true and you just feel so lucky! You may lose something that you were not able to lose, so be sensible about any type of game of chance.  Good luck is helping you get what you want, be sure you know what you truly want.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Health matters should be dealt with immediately or perhaps make that doctor appointment that you have been putting aside for another time.  It’s very important that you exercise, eat right and take all of your medications that were prescribed for you and you must listen to whatever advice your doctor or health care professional gives you.  Figuring out if you should stay in a relationship(s) is a very important decision. You finally are deciding to end relationships with people who are takers or who drain you on a continual basis.  You are very much aware that you have been too giving, caring, loving, kind, generous, and honest and doing for others and now you wish to get some reciprocal energy back in return or you are out of the “giving” business!  You want some peace of mind and would like others to understand how much they continue to use you.  Things are blown out of proportion so make sure you are mindful of what you say to others.  Try to be kind, but be firm in letting others know that you are busy as well and need to take care of your own projects and issues as well as family matters before you have any extra time to help others.  You are headed for many changes now so it is good that you start with a clean slate so you don’t have to make good on many promises and not have time for the important things you wish to accomplish for your family and yourself.

AQUARIUS – January 19 — February 17

Relationships both personal and business are highlighted this month.  There is a lot of vitality coming into the marriage house changing the energies around you.  Make sure you are adamant about what you want from a partner or you may be disappointed.  Maybe you would like to meet someone special to become a significant other – so what is stopping you?  Get out there and meet people by attending local events or church functions. Personal and business relationships seem to be leading you on an emotional roller coaster ride.  You feel as if things are going well, but you may have some reservations.  Take a chance so you can have some fun and relaxation.  You deserve it as you have been helping others for a very long time and need some karmic payback chips.  You may be thinking of changing jobs or going for additional training or certifications to get to the next level.  This is a wonderful idea.  You should be happy at your place of business.  If this is not the case, you need to change jobs.  It seems to be draining the life out of you.  It is not a positive environment any longer and some changes need to be made, or you may have to find employment elsewhere.  Some Aquarians are actually thinking of starting their own home based businesses as well which would also be a positive move in the right direction.  Love life is going in a much better direction and your emotions are finally coming to grips with new romantic partners.  Thinking about your future with new positive energy and optimism is really the way to go.  Things will start becoming easier and better for you than they have been in the near past.  You are taking control of your life and will be very happy that you’ve done so.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Money issues may be confusing so take the time you need to figure out your finances and all of the obligations that you need to handle.  Planning a budget will be a good start to help you deal with these responsibilities and will lessen the financial burden from your shoulders.  Your partner may have some secrets from you, but it could be because (s)he does not want to alarm or worry you.  Try to start an open dialog with him/her to see if there is anything that you should truly be aware of or if you can help in any way.  Sometimes all someone needs to make things right is to have a loved one listen to them without being judged for their feelings or thoughts.  This is an extremely creative or artistic time so if you are into “the arts” or want to do something creative – this is the time to do it. It will bring you much peace of mind and recreation that you will feel revitalized. It can also be a time where addictions need to be looked at whether it is smoking, drinking, drugs, or food, etc.  Try to live a healthy lifestyle by exercising and eating right. You can also have fun with this by walking around the neighborhood with a friend and catch up on gossip or information about your friend or neighbors that you have missed.  Changing your attitude about certain topics or situations in your life will help you move past some hurts and get you on the emotional road to recovery quicker than you thought possible. __________________________________________________________________________________

April Horoscopes

by Vikki Anderson

Important dates this month:  All Fool’s Day (April Fools) on the 1st, Palm Sunday on the 9th, Passover on the 11th, Good Friday on the 14th, Easter Sunday on the 16th, Emancipation Day on the 17th, Tax Day on the 18th, and Earth Day and the April Lyrids Meteors on the 22nd.

Spring Has Sprung

Isn’t it great that we don’t have to schedule our chores and errands around the cold wintery weather any longer?  The worst that can happen is that it might rain but an umbrella takes care of that problem.  The rain is helping the grass grow and the flowers bloom to welcome in the new season for all of us.  Soon, we will have a plethora of flowers in rainbow colors brightening up the world and making each day one in which we feel obliged to smile at their beauty.  And this in turn, makes our day happier and more positive.

Spring is a wonderful time to start cleaning out the yard, opening up the windows and letting the new fresh air of spring inside of your home and life.

With the new energy of the season, it is important to clear out the old stale energy from the winter and breathe new life into your environment.

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

  1. Place a small bird bath or water fountain near the front entrance.
  2. Hang beautiful chimes from trees, your deck or house gutters for a melodious sound to relax and calm you while you are outside.
  3. Hang up whirl-i-gigs to promote positive chi to circulate around your property and remove any stagnant areas of dead or dying chi.
  4. Plant bulbs, annuals, perennials in bright colors.  Follow the Bagua colors to correctly place the right color in the right area of your yard or garden.
  5. Burn white sage throughout your home, closets, bathroom, cellar, attic and around the house to ensure negative energy or negative chi is removed while keeping your windows in your home open to allow the negativity to escape from your surroundings.
  6. Place 60 MM aurora borealis round crystals in windows that get the morning sun so that rainbows will dance on your ceiling and walls.  Each room should have many colors in it for balanced energy.
  7. Get rid of things you no longer need, want or like, so that you will have a clutter free space to enjoy and come home to each evening without feeling overwhelmed by the clutter.
  8. A fresh coat of paint will do wonders for your space and your mood.  Choose the proper color for the area of the ba gua you are painting; if you can’t, add a few decorative touches like pillows, books, candleholders, statues or paintings with the required colors in them.
  9. Let the light into your home.  Put up sheer curtains or pleated shades that can be opened from the top or bottom so you can maximize the sunlight and feel re-energized.

Any new additions or changes you bring into your home or yard will energize you and your whole family for the upcoming season.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

This is a truly great time to get your life in order.  Follow some of your dreams that you never had time for in the past; deal with issues on the job.  Are you really happy in your career?  Is it time to start a new adventure in your life?  Should you go for more educational studies to do exactly the job you want to do until you retire? Or are you ready to retire but are afraid that there won’t be enough money to get you through?  There are so many questions you are asking yourself now about your life and not only about work.  Home life seems to be going in a good direction, but is there something else you would like to add to it.  Perhaps redecorating for the new spring season may be important to you.  It may rejuvenate and motivate you to do all the things you have only dared to dream.

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

You may find yourself thinking too much about things you can’t change or events from the past which may interfere with your sleep.  Your mind is racing and until you make some type of commitment to whatever it is you want in life (or a particular goal), this may continue.  It would be in your best interest if you stopped procrastinating as well.  Get those things done so positive energies and opportunities can stick to you.  Partnerships are being tested so perhaps you should find out if there are any issues within the relationship that you would like to address.  Everything will come out positive in the end.  Perhaps someone is not letting their true feelings known to a partner or close friend.  Remedy the situation.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

You seem very emotional and sensitive now and you find yourself doing a lot of thinking about all areas of life.  You want to be able to have more fun, but you also want to finish projects.  You want to and need to be off on your own for a little while to decide what you want to do with your life.  You have wonderful ideas about your future, but you are hesitant to put your ideas into practice.  Health issues need to be taken care of as soon as you discover them or they may turn into something more serious.  Home life is doing okay and your home seems to be your refuge now, but there is something missing in your life.  Is it a purpose?  Another person?  A partner? Try to decide what you need to make your world complete and then start going after it.  You will be much happier in the end if you take action now.

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

This is a time for so many changes but you are unsure in which direction you should go first!  Start with yourself.  If there is something you would like to change about yourself regarding your attitude, your appearance, or your environment, etc., why don’t you deal with those issues.  You will be much happier if you act now.  Career may be changing whether you want it to or not, so see what you have to do to make your work life stable and secure. Can you finish a project you pushed to the side?  Are there any positive changes you can make to save the company money?  Are you interested in starting your own business?  Partnerships may be difficult at times, but with a logical mind and calm demeanor, you can accomplish anything.  Don’t be so super sensitive now.  That won’t help anyone.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

Finances are on your mind again.  How are you going to pay for this or that?  Should you buy a new purse, dress, outfit, furniture or whatever?  It is time that you keep what you have and make it work.  There are many second-hand furniture and clothes shops if you really need to buy something now.  Do not go over your budget counting on your next pay check to fill in the gap of the money you spent without budgeting or planning for it.  Work continues to go well and you may get a raise or promotion if you apply yourself now.  Make others aware of your plans to make work more streamlined or efficient.  You will reap the rewards.  Even though you may not always be in a positive frame of mind this month, just know that things are formulating for you to make a new life for yourself with your goals and aspirations coming true.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

You seem very busy, but may not be getting much done.  You almost feel as if you are a hamster on a hamster wheel going around and around.  Make a plan and stick with it.  Do one or two things per day and at the end of the week or month, look at all you have accomplished.  Taking some time for rest and relaxation is important.  You are pushing yourself too far too fast.  Why not take time out of your busy day and read a magazine, take a walk, meditate or get a cat nap.  You can always get a timer at the dollar store and take a nap in your car at lunch time with plenty of time to get back to your desk on time.  Walking around the block or perhaps your company’s parking lot is also very therapeutic and gives you fresh air which helps your brain focus on the issues at hand.  Expressing yourself in art, science, or mathematics, etc., would also make you feel a great deal of accomplishment.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

Balance is the issue as usual. You are doing quite well in all areas of life and even though there may have been some tiny setbacks, you come out the winner in almost every scenario.  You are blessed and have good fortune on your side now so do whatever it is you need to do to continue to make yourself happy.  Finding issues at work confuses you since you thought everything was going well, but it is not an important concern.  Just do your job to the best of your ability and you will be fine.  Partnerships can be tricky so be sure you are listening to what is being said rather than what you want to hear.  Being yourself keeps you centered and focused on what is really important in life.  Strive for your dreams so you can have everything you desire.

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20

There is so much going on in your life now.  There are things that need your attention and there are people who need to know they are important to you.  Remember to thank those who help you or do little things for you.  Your thanks will go a long way.  Loyalty is very important now.  Be strong and stay on the right side of the argument if you must get involved.  Integrity defines who you really are, so stay strong and do what’s right even when no one is looking.  Your attention to detail is legendary; however, now is a time where you may feel like resting or taking it easy.  Your drive is a bit slower but I encourage you to finish what you’ve started and make a list of things you want to do for the future.  You can accomplish anything you want to, so make plans to do your best and to accomplish wonderful things for your family, friends and yourself.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

This is a really busy time for you as you plan to do a million things at once.  You are thinking of studying a new field perhaps or a new modality to broaden your horizons.  Volunteering is also something that you may wish to look into, whether it’s in a hospital, church, animal shelter or the like.  You feel as if you can be of service to others now and want to help.  Sagittarians have many unexpected adventures ahead of them which will change their opinions on some matters.  It is a time for fun, traveling, doing something different and being curious about life.  This is a time for dealing with home life issues so that your future is more secure and you won’t have to guess about anyone’s intentions.  Deal with things that you pushed on the back burner since you can’t move forward if you have a lot of unfinished business from the past.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Partnerships play an important part of your month now.  This is not only romantic partnerships, but those with friends, family, colleagues, acquaintances and neighbors.  You have been doing too much for so many people that it is time for you to change your strategy and let others do things for you.  That’s a new concept, isn’t it?  You should only have to help certain people and you really have to learn how to say no to those who abuse your good nature.  Tell them you are busy and will call again when you are free.  Have a chore for them to do in return when they ask for your help.  In that way, they may stop asking you to do things for them because they don’t want to help you back!  Changes, upheavals and drama can change some relationships, but whichever ones are leftover will be the ones made of gold.

AQUARIUS – January 19 — February 17

Taking care of so many things overwhelms you.  Be uncharacteristic and do one thing at a time and finish it rather than starting so many new projects which go undone.  Updating wills, taxes, important papers, NDRs, and power of attorney paperwork will take a little time, but will be appreciated if something unexpected happens.  Money issues may be of a small worry, but you know there is money coming in so stop making money a concern.  It will work itself out in the end.  Career continues to be busy, but it is a secure job, so unless you are offered the job of a lifetime with a great salary, benefits and perks, stay at your current employment for a while longer.  It’s a job you can do in your sleep, but you benefit your co-workers by staying there.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Spirituality or esoterica is important now.  You want to expand your mind and understand so many things.  Creativity, art, science and anything that interests you will help you relax and will extinguish that thirst for knowledge.  You may be interested in traveling or setting up plans for the summer or fall and it would be a good time to go on a much needed and wanted vacation.  Being under stress is not good for anyone, so it is important that you allot time to rest, play, meditate or walk around the neighborhood to release some of the stress that clings to you.  A healthy diet and exercise will help you work around this and make you feel one hundred times better in all that you do.  Some karmic lessons may find their way into this month, so learn the lesson so you don’t have to repeat it again and again in other lifetimes.
