Published Every Monday, which means Moon Day


This week you are set to experience deep, spiritual longings, as Venus has cloaked herself in the mystical waters of Pisces. But dreams are not reality, not yet. Dreams take time to leap from spirit, to the mind, and then into matter. You may taste the sweetness of your future, if you open yourself to her, but must realize that actualizing your visions takes some commitment and dedication. Let your fantasies foment, but realize they will not happen as of yet. Savor the fake intoxication, as it feels real, and if you allow it, very soon will be. Specifically, this week features a special new moon, solar eclipse when the moon blockades the space between the sun and the earth, further emphasizing spiritual and creative nurturance. With all of the magic around the corner, keep your wits about you, and be careful what you wish for, as the new moon is prime time for such activities.


Aries, Born 3/21-4/19: Your tendency is to charge head first, but there’s a subtle opening for you to hold back. Your pain is telling you the answers to the problems you seek to abate, but your usual motion is to aggressively move, sometimes in vain.

Taurus, Born 4/20-5/20: You’re emphasizing your career right now, especially with regard to your individual, unique ambition. But you can’t get anywhere without friends and social networks. There’s an opportunity for you to explore some different social patterns that could benefit you greatly, if you’d open yourself up to them.

Gemini, Born 5/21-6/20: Thoughts don’t have to equal reality. Simply living with and observing your thoughts can be enough, and then they can break into the reality you crave, you just have to wait.

Cancer, Born 6/21-7/22: You powerfully nurture and protect all that comes into your life, but the heavens are asking you to change, change for the sake of your own climb up the proverbial mountain of success. Take a hard look at all of your partnerships and relationships this week and make the necessary changes.

Leo, Born 7/23-8/22: Never short on romance and drama, you can only play the leading role with the help of others, especially in the form of partnerships. Though the future is especially on your mind, it’s those key individual partnerships who can help make you the lion monarch that you are.

Virgo, Born 8/23-9/22: Here’s a chance, Virgo, for you to get outside of your head and into your heart, especially with those around you who are more spiritually oriented. When you open your soul to the heavens, there is no stopping you.

Libra, Born 9/23-10/22: Used to relating to others, and making the necessary judgments and adjustments that social situations require, find some individuals this week who are rugged individuals, and borrow some of their traits for yourself. You don’t always have to be an impartial judge.

Scorpio, Born 10/23-11/21: It’s hard and dense as the fixed sign of change but remember, though change is hard, it is for the better, especially for your transformed future self, a self that most others will never have the luxury of knowing.

Sagittarius, Born 11/22-12/21: Never one to look back, be careful that your strides into the future are not governed by past occurrences that haunt you. Just because you shoot your arrows into the distance doesn’t mean you won’t be thrown right back into the past.

Capricorn, Born 12/22-1/19: The grounded, steady goat of the zodiac, allowing some of Venus’ magic into your plodding will make your journey easier, more fun, and more spiritual.

Aquarius, Born 1/20-2/18: Life is very active for you right now, but make sure to dedicate that activity to really feeling what your future will be, as a dramatic, golden, royal, rather than, normatively, a cold, distant, intellectual.

Pisces, Born 2/19-3/20: Is it always magic for you? Not quite, at least not yet. You’re the most prone to be swept away by the power of spirit, but keep your water bottled up, as we’re still in Aquarius, the water bearer, and then you’ll really see your magic unleashed as opposed to dissolving in the water.
