Weekly Horoscopes for 11/4-11/10, 2019
Aries-As Mercury travels through its first full week of being retrograde it will be in your House of Transformation where it will eventually come into alignment with Pluto, the planet of transition, in your House of Career and Public Image. At the same time, Mars in your House of Partnerships will both square Pluto and align amicably with Jupiter in your House of Philosophy. What all this means is that if you’re willing to be honest and acknowledge the pink elephant in the room then there is hope that you will be able to juggle any tense interactions in either your career or personal life. However, if you take an all or nothing attitude in your interactions with others and try to deny an obvious problem, you could very well find your self either all dressed up with nowhere to go, or else married to a job that won’t keep you warm at night. The choice is yours, just try to consider how what you do will affect someone else……..You’ll be glad you did.
Taurus- If there is anything you have been reticent to tell a friend or lover, this week may be the time to see if you can trust this person. Mercury retrograde in your House of Relationships aligning with Pluto in your House of Philosophy is about revealing secrets and sharing confidences, while at the same time Mars in relationship oriented Libra squaring Pluto is about tensions brewing under the surface. Don’t wait until something breaks to fix it, especially if you can already clearly see the need for a repair. Jupiter in your House of Transformation will be aligning nicely with Mars in your House of Routines, so any troubles you’re willing to confront now should result in happy outcomes. A word to the wise, get busy doing what you know needs to be done.
Gemini- Mars in your House of Creativity aligning with Jupiter in your House of Partnerships could be either a blessing or a curse for you now, meaning that even though you could be very inventive this week about advancing your own interests, make sure that no one has to look at the underside of a bus in order for you to get ahead. Mercury retrograde in the secretive sign of Scorpio aligning with Pluto in its ruling House of Death and Transformation is all about the truth coming out, no matter what, so be careful. You are a sign that often believes in a wide interpretation of facts, but when you consider that someone else may have to pay for you playing fast and loose with the rules (or worse, the law) don’t think that you can act with impunity. As the Moon ends the week behind the scenes with crazy, unpredictable Uranus, payback could be a real bitch if you’ve underestimated the resolve of an underling to stand up if it’s a matter of their own survival.
Cancer- As Mercury retrograde transits your House of Creativity and aligns with transformative Pluto in your House of Partnerships, you may want to rethink your attitude about someone from the past and exactly what this person did or didn’t do for you when it really mattered. Mars passing through your House of Family will be squaring Pluto, which could test a family loyalty, particularly if someone is not really thinking at all about how something they’re obsessed with will actually affect you if you help them. If you need to teach this person a lesson, do it, you might end up getting a golden opportunity for yourself if you’re not wasting your time servicing them, especially with expansive Jupiter in your House of Work aligning with Mars. Sometimes telling someone, “no” is actually saying “yes” to yourself. Think about it.
Leo- If there has been something that hasn’t seemed quite right, either at home or on the job, this week could be the time for you to do a little detective work and get to the bottom of what’s bothering you. Mercury retrograde in your House of Foundations and the secretive sign of Scorpio together with transformative Pluto in your House of Routines are all about investigations and revealing secrets, so get out your magnifying glass, keep your eyes and ears open, and start digging for clues. Mars in your House of Communication may see you coming up against some resistance if you manage to ask the right person the right question, however, you shouldn’t be embarrassed if they have something to hide. Jupiter in your House of Creativity aligning with Mars will help you to charm just about anybody you have to, so don’t hesitate to make whatever requests are necessary; the truth will reward you in the end.
Virgo- As Mercury retrograde in the penetrating sign of Scorpio and your House of Communication aligns this week with transformative Pluto in your House of Creativity, don’t hesitate to ask someone in power a hard question that needs to be answered. Of course they may choose to stonewall you, particularly as combative Mars moves into a square with Pluto, however, Mars is also passing through your House of Self Worth and the egalitarian sign of Libra, so if the cause you’re involved in is close to your heart, move forward boldly righteous warrior, particularly with noble Jupiter supporting Mars from your Foundation area. You have been put in your current situation because you are the one that can galvanize the necessary forces to right a big wrong. Take the challenge, you’ll be proud of yourself in the end, no matter what the outcome.
Libra- As Mercury retrograde in your House of Self Worth and the deep sign of Scorpio aligns with Pluto and Saturn at your Symbolic Foundation, this is the perfect time for you to re-examine your goals and motivations regarding the future. Not because you’re on the wrong track, quite the opposite, in fact, you’re a lot closer to where you’d hope to be than you might think. Re-examination would be good now in regards to finding (and maintaining) the most efficient way for you to get from point A to point B on your highway of dreams. Mars in your sign is currently giving you all the energy you need, and as the Planet of War aligns with Philosophical Jupiter in your House of Communication luck is on your side as well. If you ‘ve been working on something creative, this week would be a good time to put the finishing touches on it as next week’s Transit of Mercury will likely be the time when you will have to let your baby go out into the world to find its destiny……And it will.
Scorpio- Mercury retrograde in your sign now is likely bringing back memories of things you haven’t thought about in a long time. Add Pluto in your House of Thinking and Communication to the mix and not only will you be re-examining some long standing attitudes you’ve always held, but you’ll probably also want to set a few people in your life straight in regards to who you were as opposed to who you’re going to be from here on. Mars behind the scenes will give you some considerable gravitas as far as how strong you’ll come across with your revelations, as well as how seriously folks will take you when they hear what you have to say. Ultimately though it is Jupiter in your House of Self Worth who is the force driving this bus, as the King of the Planets guides you along into your next incarnation as the stone cold truth.
Sagittarius- With both Venus and Jupiter in your sign you are likely bubbling with charm now as luck falls out of the sky all around you. Mars in your House of Groups will also be adding an extra dose of charisma to this bandwagon, however, don’t assume you can just smile your way through anything. I say this because Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth are squaring Mars at this time, meaning that as much as you shine, someone else will feel a need to turn out your light. Not to worry though, Mercury retrograde behind the scenes aligning with Pluto will allow you to see right through a hater so that you won’t have to waste any energy stooping to their level. Helicopters can’t get jet planes, so carry on with your loop-di-loops and cart wheels up their in the clouds because for now this is your party and you can “not cry” if you want to.
Capricorn- It is said that “knowledge is power” and at this time with Mercury retrograde in your House of Groups aligning with Pluto in your sign, you have access to some information regarding an individual or a situation that someone would be willing to pay a pretty penny for. Now this could be actual hard data, or it could even be something as abstract as an insight into a matter that is literally driving someone else crazy. Either way, you have something of value now at your fingertips so don’t keep it to yourself. Neptune in your House of Communication is also aligning with Mercury and Pluto, so if you’re going to share anything make sure that you’re also discreet. Jupiter behind the scenes guiding Mars through diplomatic Libra in your House of Public Image will make sure you come out smelling like a rose, no matter who ends up going down because of your secret.
Aquarius- With Mercury retrograde transiting now through your House of Public Image and the clandestine sign of Scorpio, what you say (or what someone else say’s about you) could be a matter of concern at this time, especially if you are in the public eye or have recently scored a success someone else could be envious of. Pluto behind the scenes aligning with Mercury is all about knowing one’s enemy, whether that be another party who actually dislikes you, or your own worst tendencies. Make sure you leave no stone unturned when it comes to being vigilant about your public image, which could be easy to overlook at this time as Jupiter in your House of Groups and Dreams aligns with Mars in your House of Philosophy to give you the illusion that you’re invincible (or at least have no enemies). A word to the wise, “loose lips sink ships.”
Pisces- Mercury retrograde in your House of Philosophy aligning with Pluto in your House of Dreams may find you re-thinking what you want out of life and how you’ll get it. Mars in your House of Transformation is challenging you now to do the right thing (even if it’s not necessarily in your own best interests) while Jupiter in your House of Career is countering with the notion that if “God didn’t want them sheared, he wouldn’t have made them sheep.” While public morality is about politics and private morality is about honor, they each have their consequences. Just make sure that whichever one you choose you can pay the bill when the waiter brings it.
Weekly Horoscopes for 10/28- 11/03, 2019
Aries- You will start this week with four major planets in the intense sign of Scorpio and your House of Transformation, meaning that you will no doubt be chomping at the bit to restructure everything around to your liking, especially with Saturn and Pluto moving back together in your House of Public Image where they will insist on you presenting a tightly put together image to the world. Of course this will probably cause you some stress, after all, who wants to go out there thinking their fly may be open? Mars in your House of Relationships will be moving into an exact square with Saturn, which will likely mean you’re going to need to compromise on just how much you can have your way in any given situation, just try not to look at taking no prisoners as the only option for making yourself happy.
Taurus- Relationships, friendships, and family associations could all be very challenging for you at this time, especially since you have four major planets in your House of Partnerships and at the same time individualistic Uranus in your sign is opposing them all. It’s not that you’re especially hard to get along with now, rather it’s that you detest anyone trying to tell you what to do. Add to that sentiment the fact that Saturn and Pluto are currently in your House of Philosophy and you’ll likely be feeling particularly sensitive about maintaining autonomy and control over your own existence. Jupiter in your House of Transformation aligning with Mars in your House of Routines will have you feeling the need to expand your sphere of influence, while at the same time you will not want to compromise very much on your vision of what your life should be now. Although the song say’s, “You’ve got to give a little, take a little,” I sense you’re not feeling that at this point in time.
Gemini- With four major planets now in Scorpio and your House of Routines opposing erratic, unpredictable Uranus behind the scenes, you could be experiencing a power play at work that might end up rocking your whole world. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Transformation will insist on enforcing the rules, so if you’ve been playing fast and loose with the status quo expect to be taken to task. Jupiter in your House of Partnerships will have you believing you’re above it all, especially as the King of the Planets aligns with feisty Mars in your House of Creativity. You’ll no doubt try to rewrite some of the rules at this time or maybe even create a few new ones of your own, just don’t forget that what goes around comes around and those who live by the sword often die by it as well.
Cancer- Your House of Creativity is packed now with four major planets and they’re all opposing revolutionary Uranus in your House of Fondest Hopes and Dreams. Whatever it is you’re feeling now is so strong that you don’t really have any choice but to go out there and try to make it happen, especially with visionary Neptune in your House of Philosophy filling your head with added doses of both inspiration and righteousness. If not now, when? If not here, where? Saturn and Pluto together in your House of Partnerships have been waiting in the wings for almost a year now to help you with this struggle, so don’t hesitate to forge new associations and rejuvenate older ones in an effort to rally a new support system to begin your manifest destiny. Aside from all this recent inspiration and coinciding perfectly with the aforementioned alignments, Jupiter and Mars are also starting to muster troops at a grass roots level in your chart, so be sure not to waste another second in implementing your recent ideas for a newer, more creative life……..All roads lead to Rome, so get going Spartacus.
Leo- If you’ve been feeling restless lately or it seems like you have a splinter in your brain that something isn’t right and you just can’t dislodge it, be willing to follow your intuition and see where these irresistible urges lead. Uranus, the planet of the psyche, is in your House of Career, which could cause some of these subconscious urges you’re experiencing to manifest into challenges and disruptions designed to motivate change, particularly if you’ve been feeling a little too comfy as of late in your endless complaining. Neptune in your House of Transformation will likely have all the answers you’ll need, although the Ruler of the Ocean often likes to teach us via illusions and fantasies that blow up in our faces rather than with an easy to recognize menu of logic. In other words, expect to feel uncomfortable for the time being because nothing worth having comes without a price and if all turns to be is a little discomfort, then consider yourself lucky.
Virgo- If there’s something you feel you need to say, then say it. And if others won’t listen, or else they try to gaslight you and undermine your message, then shout it to the rooftops. Because now, more than any other time in your life, you are the voice of reason, the voice of truth. What you want to communicate at this time will only sound unreasonable to those who are embodying the problem that’s being pointed out, or else those who are too stupid to see how they’re getting screwed. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity are a revolutionary pair, and as they align with four planets in your House of Communication and Neptune in your House of Partnerships, make sure you are speaking in no uncertain terms. Say what you mean and don’t count among your friends those whose would stand on the sidelines and let what you’re trying to do be undermined. If you truly believe change is necessary, then let that change begin in you……..Get Pushy!!!
Libra- Four Scorpio Planets now in your House of Self Worth opposing individualistic Uranus in your House of Transformation are providing you with the sort of quiet determination that gets shit done. Mars in your sign squaring both Saturn and Pluto at your Symbolic Foundation is also a driving factor in this equation, as it is motivating you to stop at nothing in order to finish what you started, especially as the Planet of War is also aligning with Jupiter in your House of Communication where it will inspire your efforts and turn them into a labor of love. And if there’s one thing that’s always true, “What the world needs now is love, sweet love, That’s the only thing that’s there’s just too little of…” So keep your nose to the grindstone for no matter how dark it may seem at any given moment, the Sun has yet to fail in bringing us a new day.
Scorpio- The Sun, the Moon, Venus, and Mercury are all in your sign now making you penetrating, insightful, sexy, and more than a little threatening. You may be laughing at this characterization, but be aware of what I’m saying because crazy old Uranus is opposing all those planets in your sign, which could bring some very unexpected consequences as a result of the unsettling influence you’re having on others. Mars behind the scenes in your chart is also having something to do with those around you feeling intimidated, particularly as the Planet of War is squaring status quo Saturn and aligning with over the top Jupiter. The best thing you can do now is to avoid focusing on what annoys you, lest anyone should have a brick fall out of the sky and hit them in the head. Also, be aware of attracting strays with that big old mojo you’re sashaying around with. If you can keep it on the down low now, you could have a very pleasurable (and lucky) week…..Wink! Wink!
Sagittarius- Four Scorpio Planets are behind the scenes now in your chart, which could have you feeling all dressed up with nowhere to go, particularly since Uranus in your House of Routines is bored beyond belief with the same old same old and desperately wants to bust a move. The tension is so palpable now you could probably cut it with a knife, especially as Mars in your House of Dreams is squaring Saturn in your House of Self Worth and aligning with Jupiter in your sign. I know the voices in your head are saying you can’t, but instead of responding to them emotionally listen to what they’re actually saying. Does it remind you of a little boy or girl whining rather than a grown up man or woman making sense? There ya go……It’s all about getting to the bottom of the illusions you keep alive rather than being powerless against some reality that you’ve convinced yourself exists. As the poet Rimbaud once wrote, “Go everywhere and do everything, no one will hurt you any more than if you were a corpse.”
Capricorn- This week for you is about power, not strength, and resolve, not stubbornness.Four Scorpio planets in your House of Groups opposing Uranus in your House of Creativity is all about talking softly and carrying a big stick, while Mars in your House of Public Image aligning with Jupiter behind the scenes is about taking the high road because that’s who you are. Let the world think what it may, for with Neptune in your House of Communication aligning with both Saturn and Pluto in your sign, you have all the mojo you need right now to kill the bad folks with kindness, and you should. Mostly because non-violence is more noble, but also because it will confuse the hell out of your adversaries and mental torture is a lot more fun that getting down in the mud with animals……..Wouldn’t you agree?
Aquarius- Like an elderly Qi-Gong Master who can stop several younger and stronger men in their tracks with a wave of his hand, you are wielding a pretty hefty mojo now as Saturn and Pluto together behind the scenes in your chart align with Neptune in your House of Self Worth and square Mars in your House of Philosophy. At the same time, Mars is also being supported by Philosophical (and esoteric) Jupiter in your House of Groups, subsequently allowing you to connect with something far more intuitive and powerful than any run of the mill logic. Add to all this a stellium of planets in mysterious Scorpio and your House of Public Image and you essentially become the original inscrutable ninja who is managing to make shit happen that no one can figure out. If truth be told, you probably can’t figure out why your luck has turned either, however, don’t think of it that way. The Tao that can be figured out is not the true Tao……..Nuff said!!!
Pisces- With four Scorpio planets in your House of Philosophy you want what you want right now, however, maybe at this time it’s not about your ego, but rather what the Tao will allow. You see we all live in a holistic, interactive universe in which various things depend on one another and, at times, inadvertently control each other’s fates. The fact that you see this sort of interdependency as an inconvenience doesn’t mean shit to the rest of the universe. The planets will revolve, all things will come to pass, and you will accept it, whether you like it or not. And if you don’t believe me then you need to talk to Saturn and your own ruler, Neptune, as they put aggressive and self-centered Mars in his place in your House of Joint Resources. You will not benefit now at another’s expense……..Period!!!
Weekly Horoscopes for 9/30-10/6, 2019
Aries- Your hard charging nature will probably want to ruthlessly forge ahead this week, however, with four major planets in the balanced sign of Libra and conservative Saturn in your House of Public Image the motto you may want to follow at this time is “look before you leap” (and look twice at that!). Of course patience may not be your strong suit at this time, particularly with Mercury in your House of Transformation and the power hungry sign of Scorpio squaring crazy old Uranus in your House of Self Worth. If you can manage right now not to take everything that happens to you personally and realize you’re part of a bigger picture, then you could end up riding a newly developing wave of cooperation rather than paddling against it.
Taurus- As Mercury moves this week from balanced Libra and your house of Work to power hungry Scorpio and your House of Relationships, expect things to heat up with a partner, especially if you’ve been putting most of your focus as of late on work rather than them. Jupiter in your House of Transformation has been pushing you to be the best you can be, but at what price? Neptune in your House of Dreams squaring Jupiter could have you taking your support system for granted, which may work for the short term but when you’re played out and need some TLC where will you be then? Saturn and Pluto in your House of Philosophy are a volatile pair, but they are actually well matched as one is about letting what doesn’t work go and the other is about building something new. With that in mind you better re-evaluate your priorities before it’s too late.
Gemini- When Mercury, the planet of communication, enters secretive Scorpio this week and opposes volatile Uranus behind the scenes, something from your past that you would rather remain private could manage to leak out into the public. Neptune in your House of Public Image squaring Jupiter in your House of Relationships could see you trying to either hide or spin this piece of defamatory info, although trying to misrepresent the matter now could do you some irreparable damage. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Transformation have been the writing on the wall for a while regarding your tenuous relationship with the truth, and as the Sun starts to come around to square both of these powerful planets you may have to finally face the music for being a pathological stretcher of the truth…….In other words, “liar, liar, pants on fire!”
Cancer- As the week begins with an unaspected Mars in the critical sign of Virgo and your House of Thinking, you could have a chronic case of glass half-empty right now that could end up starting you off on the wrong foot when it comes to dealing with a particularly manipulative individual. Not to worry though, if you can be patient and let things develop on their own you might just be surprised at how another’s dishonesty can benefit you. Mercury entering your House of Creativity later in the week will oppose Uranus in your House of Groups, meaning that the crazier shit gets the more intuitive and innovative you’ll become, particularly as Jupiter is currently passing through your House of Work and squaring Neptune in your House of Philosophy. If you’re sure about who you are then others will be too, especially those who have been dealing with you for a while. Don’t let someone else’s incompetency determine the rules of engagement in either a social or work situation. Set the record straight and reap the rewards you’re due.
Leo- You say you want the truth, but can you handle it? Something that happens this week may not be the result of what you think and investigating its real cause could cause you to re-evaluate certain assumptions that you have been somewhat naïve about. Mercury entering the secretive sign of Scorpio will be opposing Uranus, planet of the unexpected, meaning that you could very well be shocked when you finally realize what is motivating someone in a certain situation, however, the really aha moment may be when you have to admit to yourself, “Can I blame them?” Jupiter in your House of Creativity squaring Neptune in your House of Transformation could help you to see how you have been seriously underestimating matters, while Saturn and Pluto in your House of Routines will be slapping you upside the head to get your ass in gear and act on some pretty obvious writing on the wall.
Virgo- As four planets currently move through your House of Self Worth and the balanced sign of Libra, the question you need to be asking yourself right now is, “what exactly do I know about a certain individual and can I trust them? Jupiter in your House of Foundations could have you underestimating your own judgment, although as the King of the Planets squares Neptune in your House of Relationships you may start to realize that your confidence (or lack thereof) is actually the result of some real mixed messages from a partner or close friend. How much of a vested interest does this person have in you either succeeding or failing? Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity angling with Neptune could help you to see the forest for the trees in this relationship by understanding how to ju-jitsu the other individual’s negativity in order to control them rather than having them manipulate you. The roles of the prisoner and the jailer could reverse this week so don’t be surprised when you finally see that you’re the one holding the keys.
Libra- The Sun, Venus, Mercury, and Mars will all be in your sign this week, and when you add Jupiter in your House of Communication, you should find yourself feeling pretty confident that you can achieve the kind of positive results you have been meditating on for a while. Saturn and Pluto at the bottom of your chart are still shifting the ground under your feet, but when Mercury moves into your House of Earned Income and opposes magickal Uranus in your House of Transformation, you should gain some insight into how to surf the coming wave of circumstances wherever they may lead and end up okay. The Lunar Arc this week will begin in your House of Self Worth and end in your House of Foundation, meaning that if you can emotionally accept the challenges currently being offered as a stimulant rather than a deadly poison, you might just heal in ways you’ve never imagined. Namaste.
Scorpio- When Mercury enters your sign this week your need to know will be greatly increased, although be careful because the Messenger Planet will also be opposing Uranus, King of the Unexpected, in your House of Relationships. As a poet once wrote, “Be careful what you/ think you want, it can only/ be just what it is”, meaning that many of us routinely ask for love not realizing it will change us in ways we might not be comfortable with. Of course those changes will bring us that much closer to the truth of ourselves, which could be a rude awakening if you have a vested interest in thinking of yourself in a specific way. With Saturn and Pluto transiting your House of Thinking now you could very well get a headache from such myopic thoughts, yet like any other investment, if you pay now you can play later. Don’t limit yourself by believing you’re either too good or not good enough for someone, if you’re both attracted then there is something afoot for you both to learn. Give Cupid a clear shot.
Sagittarius- Jupiter in your sign squaring Neptune in your House of Home could have you feeling like you’re caught in a Freudian nightmare now, which I would like to say is no big deal, but actually it is. The Doors wrote a song about this type of thing called, “The End,” so if you can follow that narrative and “take a walk on down the hall” to confront your parents you might finally be able to “Picture what can be, so limitless and free” for yourself. Much of the revelatory character of what you’re thinking now will also be due to Mercury passing behind the scenes into the deep, transformative sign of Scorpio, where it will oppose volatile Uranus in your House of Routines. In other words, don’t underestimate your ability to “screw the inscrutable or eff the ineffable when it comes to your fears as enlightenment may be right at the door if you can manage to let go of your misconceptions and “question not for whom the bell tolls.”
Capricorn-Four planets in the nicey nice sign of Libra and your House of Public Image should have you feeling a lot friendlier than usual, particularly as Jupiter behind the scenes is cheering you on like a letter from home when you’re feeling lonely. Uranus in your House of Creativity will be opposed by Mercury as it enters the secretive sign of Scorpio and your House of Groups, meaning that you should consider using all that niceness those Libra planets are giving you at this time for a good purpose, namely getting ahead, particularly as that Mercury/Uranus opposition should have you feeling especially Machiavellian. Of course Saturn and Pluto are still in your sign and if you don’t think those two are about gaining power then you really haven’t been paying attention for the last year; btw, whatever you do, don’t let either of them get wind of that! Who wants to repeat their lessons, really!
Aquarius- Four planets moving now through your House of Philosophy and the diplomatic sign of Libra have you feeling like you want to be serving a higher set of ideals, while at the same time Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes in the achievement oriented sign of Capricorn are reminding you of all the stuff you want. Some would say this is a philosophical matter, but I think it’s a simple reality issue, which is of course determined by wanting something and then discovering what’s in the way of you getting it. Most folks screw themselves when confronted by this sort of dilemma by doing what a legendary Occultist described as, “confusing the planes.” In other words, you wouldn’t cast a magickal spell to get a pizza you would just call the local pizzeria and order a pie. The only real questions therefore are, what do you want and how do you get it? Acting on those questions will eventually teach you the difference between what you think the world is as opposed to what it actually is, so keep plugging away and maybe you will fail better next time?
Pisces- The Ancient Qabalist’s had a term known as “the equilibrium of balance,” meaning that through the movement of the Universe a tenuous, yet eternal harmony is always being maintained by the fact that things are constantly changing. As Mercury enters your House of Philosophy and the deeply esoteric sign of Scorpio, it will oppose Uranus in your House of Thinking, meaning that your own personal sense of equilibrium between what you think the world is and what it really is will be up for grabs in a most pragmatic sort of way. In other words, whatever you don’t take the time to figure out now in terms of how your world is changing will in turn likely end up defining you in a way you might not like. A word to the wise, take care of business now and leave your fantasies for when the day’s work for survival is done.
Weekly Horoscopes for 9/16-9/22, 2019
Aries- The week will start off with the Moon in your sign doing a jitterbug with Jupiter in Saggittarius, which will probably have you expectant, impatient, and so damn excited you just can’t stand it! That is, until Mars in your House of Routines aligns with Pluto retrograde in your House of Career and the world reminds you of your responsibilities. Of course with Neptune behind the scenes squaring Jupiter you may just decide to ignore all rational advice and go ahead with your particular pipe dream anyway. Rebellious Uranus in your House of Self Worth along with both Mercury and Venus in your House of Relationships will probably concur with you hanging up a “Gone Fishin’” sign, so try it and see what happens. Live and learn…….live and learn.
Taurus- At the beginning of the week an Aries Moon behind the scenes aligning with Jupiter in your House of Transformation could have you optimistic about a new idea or project, although as Mars in your House of Creativity aspects Pluto retrograde in your House of Philosophy, some unexpected difficulties could arise that will slow your roll a bit and force some adjustments and improvisations. Not to worry though as Neptune in your House of Dreams will allow you to think way outside the box and Uranus in your sign will give you the necessary chutzpah to push forward with any plan, especially with Mercury and Venus in your House of Work and the diplomatic sign of Libra to spread however much honey is necessary to convince anybody of anything. Go ahead, kill ‘em with kindness.
Gemini- Jupiter along with an Aries Moon will have you feeling quite magnanimous to start the week, however, as Mars, Pluto, and Neptune come into play with each other later on you could find yourself having to either walk back something you said in haste or else cover up a major blunder that happened because you weren’t paying attention while you were feeling so full of yourself. Uranus behind the scenes could cause you to panic, but on the other hand it could also motivate you to double down and try to defend the indefensible. A tailor made conundrum for a Gemini if there ever was one, which should be even further exacerbated by a wooly square between spacey Neptune in your House of Public Image and Jupiter in your House of Relationships. Appreciate that what you’re expecting others to believe now may very well be beyond credulity, so don’t be disappointed in anyone but yourself if you’re left holding the very bag you actually stole!
Cancer- Jupiter aligning with an Aries Moon to start the week could see you trying to bite off more than you can chew, which will probably be exacerbated even further by both Mercury and Venus as they go through your Symbolic Foundation and make you feel you need to promise everyone everything. You love to nurture folks and take care of them but try to be realistic, after all, one can only do so much. Listen to both Saturn and Pluto in your House of Relationships as they align with Neptune in your House of Philosophy and try to school you on the finer points of compassion, helping others, and also allowing people to have their lessons; even if you can’t bear to watch. Mars, Jupiter, and Neptune later in the week will likely sound like a Greek Chorus and could cause you to shed a tear for someone else’s misfortune. If that turns out to be the case try to remember this, “It’s not your circus and not your flying monkeys.”
Leo- Jupiter aligning with the Moon to start the week could give you a healthy dose of wanderlust, just make sure your responsibilities are taken care of before you head for that greener grass on the other side of the fence. If you ignore this advice it will be at your own peril, especially as Mars aligns with Pluto retrograde in your House of Work and opposes Neptune in your House of Other People’s Money. No one is going to want to hear an excuse about why you didn’t do something you’ve already been compensated for, so don’t even try to palm off a sob story, even if Mercury and Venus in your House of Communication and the charming sign of Libra are making you feel like you could talk a zebra out of its stripes. With Uranus in your House of Public Image don’t try to kid a kidder, or else you may just end up being the one who gets kidded out of something you didn’t expect.
Virgo- The Sun and Mars in your sign will be aligning with Pluto retrograde in your House of Creativity, so not only should you have a healthy reserve of inspiration at this time but also more than enough energy to see your dreams through from theory to manifestation. Neptune should also be helpful now as the Planet who rules the seas manages to wash along all the help you’ll probably need through your House of Partnerships and into your House of Other People’s Money. As Venus and Mercury move into your House of Self Worth you will be exuding a lot of charisma, just don’t fall into the trap of feeling you’re irresistible, especially as eccentric (and unaspected) Uranus squats in your House of Philosophy chanting a pathological mantra of “me me me.” When Saturn finally goes sation/direct in your House of Creativity he should be able to keep you on a short leash and out of any long term trouble, that is, if you’re willing to be peacefully content instead of greedy.
Libra- With the Sun and Mars behind the scenes squaring Jupiter in your House of Communication and opposing Neptune in your House of Work, you will likely be inspired at this time to delve into the depths of your subconscious in hopes of releasing that potential masterpiece you believe is waiting there to be discovered. Uranus in your House of Transformation is also a factor here as one period of your life is undoubtedly coming to a close while another is about to commence, it’s just hard to know where one ends and the other begins; kind of like trying to find the horizon line as a real location somewhere. Both Saturn and Pluto retrograde at your Symbolic Foundation have also been part of this catharsis, so perhaps when they finally both go direct you’ll discover much to your surprise that you already are the new you; and have been for a while.
Scorpio- The Sun and Mars passing through your House of Dreams and squaring Jupiter in your House of Self Worth will likely have you wanting to tackle whatever is in the way of your perceived success, while an additional opposition and square of Neptune to the aforementioned planets could have you either lacking the clarity or confidence to do so. Not to worry, Both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Thinking will come up with a solution, especially as an Aries Moon (which is all about getting after it) squares them both to start the week. Something to keep in mind though while you’re out there trying to conquer the world or else not have it trample you underfoot, is to pay attention to those who comprise your support system. Erratic, independent, stubborn Uranus is unaspected in your House of Relationships now, so try not to get too wrapped up in your own head so that you get disconnected from the advice and support those close to you are trying to give.
Sagittarius- Jupiter in your sign is squaring Mars in your House of Public Image and opposing Neptune in your House of Home, meaning that it is important at this time for you to examine what is driving your ambition to succeed or perhaps even thwarting it, particularly in regards to your relationships and/or conflicts with your family. Make sure that success doesn’t represent getting back at somebody who has hurt you in the past because in the long run that will only be a hollow victory that will have to be re-won over and over again. An unaspected Uranus now in your House of Health could be a real stress inducer so try and make some time to learn how to calm yourself if things get hectic. Perhaps try taking a meditation class or even enrolling in a marital arts program, after all, it’s always a good idea to discipline the mind by first disciplining the body.
Capricorn- Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your sign have been restructuring your world from the ground up for well over a year, as a result, with both the Sun and Mars now assisting them from your House of Philosophy the time may finally be here for you to act on the new space that has been created from having let go of so much from the past. Neptune in your House of Communication will be all about inspiration, so make sure you are listening to your intuition at this time as it tries to direct an energetic but unaspected Uranus who’s all dressed up with no place to go in your House of Creativity. I know this sounds like a lot, but with Jupiter aligning with an Aries Moon to start the week, try to be up and at ‘em early Monday morning so that you stand a better chance to get a leg up on all the shit you need to do this week..
Aquarius- For everything that you’ve been doing outwardly to change your circumstances, the time may finally be here for the inner you to change as well. Saturn and Pluto have been working tirelessly behind the scenes restructuring your world and, to your credit, you’ve been trying everything you can think of to aid and abet their efforts. Now though they are going to be assisted by both the Sun and Mars in your House of Transformation and the practical sign of Virgo, meaning that instead of exhausting yourself by logically trying to do everything you can think of, it may instead be better now to let your intuition take over so you can admit to yourself what you really want as opposed to what conventional wisdom says you should have. Reading it here may sound simple enough, but just wait until the lightning bolt hits you between the eyes and you finally SEE…… It’s a new dawn.
Pisces- What do you want out of a current relationship? With the Sun and Mars in your House of Partnerships opposing Neptune in your sign you need to think about this and make a decision, because if you don’t you could end up having a decision made for you. Jupiter in your House of Public Image could have you lost in the clouds of your own fantasies and an unaspected Uranus in your House of Communication might very well have you refusing to listen to anyone, which is not a good recipe for relating to a significant other (if you know what I mean). The saving grace here could be Mercury and Venus in your House of Intimacy and the friendly, understanding sign of Libra. Let these two at least open the door to communicating with that special someone even if you still can’t see the forest of your relationship for the trees of your ego.
Weekly Horoscopes for 9/9-9/15, 2019
Aries- If there is a special message for you at this time, my hard charging friend, it’s be nice. During the week both Mercury and Venus will pass into your House of Relationships and the charming sign of Libra, meaning that you will probably attract more bees with honey than with vinegar at this time, so (and it bears repeating)…….be nice! Of course both the Sun and Mars will still be in your House of Work squaring Jupiter in your House of Philosophy, meaning that you will likely be impatient about what’s going on in your day to day affairs, although if you can manage to be patient it will be greatly to your advantage. Of course Uranus in your House of Self Worth will have you chomping at the bit and Neptune behind the scenes will continue to make you worry about outcomes, but with Saturn and Pluto trudging slowly across your House of Career you should be okay over the long haul. So…. take a deep breath and……remember…….be nice.
Taurus- This week’s Full Moon will be in your House of Dreams, which means the Sun will be in your House of Creativity and the practical sign of Virgo, therefore, if you can keep your nose to the grindstone and stay on point with all your aspirations you should be in good shape when the Moon pulls into adventurous Aries and eventually aligns with Jupiter in your House of Transformation. Saturn and Pluto have been hard taskmasters toward you for a while now, with their tough-minded attitude in your House of Philosophy making all the difference in regards to you taking yourself and what you’re interested in more seriously. As Mercury and Venus enter your House of Work and Routines you could find yourself more popular on the job than ever before………Be willing to take charge of a group, or committee, or even volunteer to give a little something of yourself to someone in need ……..Some initial networking now could bring perks you never imagined!
Gemini- The Full Moon this week in your House of Public Image could find you feeling vulnerable, particularly with both the Sun and Mars transiting through your House of Foundations like a pair of building inspectors looking for violations. Luckily both Venus and Mercury will be entering your House of Creativity and the charming sign of Libra, meaning that if you can keep up the appearance of being honest and upright and clean then it might buy you a little time before those inspectors find out just what a slumlord you really are. Sorry for being so blunt, but with Jupiter in your House of Partnerships squaring Neptune in your House of Public Image you have been playing fast and loose with the truth for a while now and it’s time for the chickens to come home to roost. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Transformation probably won’t allow you to be lead away in handcuffs, but get ready to pay for your deceptions.
Cancer-The Full Moon this week will be in your House of Philosophy and very close to compassionate Neptune, which will in turn be squaring expansive Jupiter in your House of Work……..Be careful not to let someone on the job drain you by their acting like a victim, this person has made choices (some of which you probably warned them against) and now they have responsibilities. The Sun and Mars are in your House of Communication and as they move into aspect with Jupiter refrain from saying, “I told you so” to someone who deserves it. Instead, follow the lead of Mercury and Venus as they enter the diplomatic sign of Libra. In other words, smile, say you’re sorry, and then try not to let them see you laughing afterwards. That last part is really important because with Uranus in your House of Groups you don’t want to get a reputation for adding insult to injury…….That would make you feel bad and we can’t have that now can we?
Leo- With the Sun and Mars in your House of Self Worth you have made some personal decisions as of late and now you’re going to see if you actually did the right thing. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Work have turned things upside down and then right side up again on the job, while Uranus in your House of Career could all of a sudden see your stock rise in the eyes of a superior. As Mercury and Venus enter your House of Communication and the diplomatic sign of Libra, try to roll with your new found celebrity as best you can while this person starts to depend on you and others start to get jealous. Bet you didn’t think doing the right thing in the recent past could turn out so inconveniently, but is it really so bad? You have goals and this new pain in your ass could end up handing you the seat you want at the table. Grin and bear it.
Virgo- The Sun and Mars in your sign are providing all the energy you need, while Jupiter at the bottom of your chart is giving you the necessary chutzpah to go after what you want. The question now will be, are you happy to be fighting the good fight for your hopes and dreams? Uranus in your House of Philosophy is probably making you feel like a fish out of water, but who said you were a fish? Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity would suggest you might actually be an amphibian, so get up there on dry land and go for it. Mercury and Venus in your House of Self Worth will likely make you more charming than usual, so make sure you use it to convince your partner (or anyone else who is a doubting Thomas) that you are on your way and they can either jump on the band wagon or else step aside, especially with this week’s Full Moon in your House of Partnerships and Open Enemies. No matter who ends up being there for you, be there for yourself.
Libra- With Jupiter transiting through your House of Communication and squaring both the Sun and Mars behind the scenes, you could be very impatient now regarding either a service you requested or a favor you’re in need of being delayed. I know we all want what we want, but with Saturn and Pluto at your Symbolic Foundation aligning with Neptune in your House of Daily Work, perhaps any delays happening now will turn out to be a blessing in disguise? With Uranus in your House of Transformation and a Full Moon in your House of Work, any precipitous activity on your part during this period could serve to make you miss a better opportunity in the near future. But even if that’s not true (or else you don’t want to hear it) Mercury and Venus entering your sign at this time are about movement (and pleasant surprises) so why not just try to have a little faith and look at any potential success that might be coming your way as needing to be a holistic occurrence if it is to be the real thing?
Scorpio- If you’ve been feeling any creative urges as of late, this would be a good time to express yourself as this week’s Full Moon will be in your House of Creativity near inspirational Neptune and opposing both the Sun and Mars in your House of Dreams. Sometimes the need to create can be like giving birth or defecating something that just can’t remain inside any longer, but this isn’t one of those times. No, no, no, not as Mercury and Venus slip behind the scenes in your chart and into the aesthetic and beauty oriented sign of Libra. Your need to create during this period will be based on joy, compassion, and the highest ideals. Jupiter in your House of Self Worth will add to this philosophical bent, particularly as the Moon enters Aries and your House of Work later in the week. What you do at this time needs to motivated by love and if that’s what you’re feeling then share it with the world and risk wearing your heart on your sleeve. Whatever you do will still retain some of your usual edge, which is what will make it so engaging and intriguing. Go ahead, let it hurt so good!
Sagittarius- This will likely be a week when you’ll have to roll up your sleeves and get down to it, although it probably won’t start out that way. As Mercury and Venus enter your House of Groups everything will probably seem nice and leisurely, yet as these two move into an inconjunct with unpredictable Uranus in your House of Work, some stuff could come up on the job that might just defy believability. Jupiter in your sign could cause you to freak out at first, particularly as he squares both the Sun and Mars in your House of Career. “Why me!” you’ll probably lament, although if you have any ambition at all you’ll see exactly why something malfunctioned that only you can fix…….Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth have been preparing you for this, so as the Full Moon illuminates the depths of your chart let the world see what you’re made of as you save the day!
Capricorn- With the Full Moon this week in your House of Communication and the sensitive sign of Pisces, let the world see what your feeling. Of course you’ll want to seem all professional and on top of it, especially with Mercury and Venus transiting through your House of Public Image, but the simple fact is that people are more intrigued by a show of humanity than a lack of it, simply because the former is the truth and the latter a façade. Uranus in your House of Creativity and Romance will make all your quirkiness irresistible to a certain someone, so go ahead, let your freak flag fly or your inner Woody Allen whine until the cows come in. Jupiter behind the scenes will let everyone around you see in the end that the courage to be vulnerable is the stuff heroes and heroines are made of. Forget wearing your heart on your sleeve, go all the way, get a damn tat!
Aquarius- It is an old Taoist proverb that soft is stronger than hard because soft adjusts and hard simply resists until it breaks. Take this thought to heart as the Full Moon this week glows in your House of Self Worth and the sensitive and compassionate sign of Pisces. With Saturn and Pluto having been behind the scenes now for months challenging everything you know and the Sun and Mars in your House of Transformation now pushing you relentlessly forward, it is very easy for you to currently feel like it’s been war all the time, but it’s not. Your exhaustion comes from your resistance and that’s a hard fact. Your victory will come on the heels of your acceptance and the adjustments you make concerning what the world needs you to be rather than what you want to force on the world. Success is a cooperative phenomenon that comes from need stimulating effort to ensure more work and further need……As a Poet once wrote, “Let it all go, then comes love.”
Pisces- The Full Moon is in your sign this week along with your ruling planet, Neptune, meaning that you could either be as profound as the ocean or as lost as a ship in a fog. The Sun and Mars will be in your House of Relationships and the critical sign of Virgo where they will square expansive Jupiter in your House of Public Image, meaning that you might very well hear either kudos or complaints depending on whether those around you can figure out where you’re coming from. Erratic Uranus in your House of Communication won’t likely help any of this, particularly if you end up changing your mind on a prior commitment (which is a given with you most of the time). Don’t let your usual spaciness result in someone who’s always been there for you being left in an awkward position where they will look foolish, or worse, dishonest. Follow the lead of Mercury and Venus as they enter your House of Transformation and the diplomatic sign of Libra; finish what you agreed to and then wait until it’s on your dime before you start changing your life.
Weekly Horoscopes for 8/19-8/25, 2019
Aries- As the Sun, Venus, and Mars exit your House of Fun and Creativity to enter your House of Routines and the detail oriented sign of Virgo, expect the high energy and fun of last week to quickly become a series of challenges and obstacles that will require some novel solutions. Considering that these Virgo planets will be in alignment with Uranus in your House of Self Worth, there is no doubt that you will rise to whatever conundrums are at hand as you find motivation where others may only see misfortune. Jupiter in your House of Philosophy aligning with Mercury in your House of Creativity would further accentuate this theme of ingenious solutions, so keep your nose to the grindstone and don’t stop until the foreman yells, “Miller time!!!!!”
Taurus- Having crazy, erratic, undisciplined Uranus in your sign is undoubtedly quite a shock to your stable, status quo sensibility, although later in the week there will be a trio of repair workers moving into the neighborhood to help you out as the Sun, Venus, and Mars enter the disciplined and detail oriented sign of Virgo and your House of Creativity. What at first had seemed like a barrage of challenges around a new creative project should now instead turn into some unexpected benefits as these upbeat and practical energies come into play in the sign that fixes things. Add to this Jupiter in your House of Transformation working nicely with Mercury in the proud sign of Leo and your previous “Oh no, what’s next” attitude should segue nicely into a very productive “can do” outlook…… So get out there and get shit done!
Gemini- Last week’s top heavy Leo energy probably had you thinking that you’d be able to bullshit your way out of just about anything, although with the Sun, Venus, and Mars now leaving pompous Leo to enter persnickety Virgo, get ready for the fact checkers to start snooping in places you’d rather they didn’t. Saturn retrograde in your House of Joint Resources will also be doing his little investigations, so if you’re hoping to do some damage control before you get caught with your hand in the cookie jar make sure to follow the lead of Jupiter in your House of Partnerships and Mercury in your House of Communications and call in any favors you possibly can. You’re not above the Law, but if you’re lucky you might be able to get far enough out ahead of it to give you time to formulate another strategy. It ain’t much, but it’s what you got!
Cancer- You are a sign that likes to operate on your intuition and connecting to other’s feelings, although as the Sun, Venus, and Mars enter the practical sign of Virgo and your House of Communication, make sure to get any sensitive correspondences about work or finances in writing, particularly as Uranus in your House of Groups will be aligning with these new Virgo planets, thereby increasing the possibilities of misunderstandings and outright lies. Mercury in your House of Self Worth and Jupiter in your House of Routines will have you trusting that everyone you’re familiar with is on the honor system and can be depended upon, however, hot flash from the news room, they can’t, so make sure to cover your ass and keep records.
Leo- All those positive vibes you were feeling last week when there was a stellium of planets in your sign are going to change now as the Sun, Venus, and Mars all move into your House of Self Worth and the critical sign of Virgo. You’re usually convinced of your opinions and with Jupiter in buoyant Sagittarius aligning with Mercury (who’s still in your sign) that will probably remain the same, although with those three Virgo planets aligning with Uranus in your House of Public Image make sure you double check the facts before you commit to saying or doing anything, even if you think you know what the facts are; your reputation may be at stake……Just sayin’.
Virgo- As the Sun, Venus, and Mars enter your sign this week your trouble-shooting mentality and natural attention to details could make you a very necessary individual in whatever situation you may find yourself in. The fact that these three planets will also be aligning with Uranus in your House of Philosophy could actually provide you with a few inspirations of actual genius, so don’t hesitate to express an opinion on something you think could use some improvements. Jupiter in your House of Home and Mercury behind the scenes could also mean that one of the areas in your life that may need some improvement is your living situation. If it turns out you can’t fix where you are then perhaps beginning a search for new digs could actually be where your next stroke of luck will be. Look around, what have you got to lose?
Libra- With Jupiter now direct in your House of Communication aligning with Mercury in your House of Dreams you are no doubt considering some big ideas that you’d like the world to know about. As the Sun, Venus, and Mars all slip behind the scenes into the detail oriented sign of Virgo, take the opportunity now to flesh out the necessary details for your inspirations and get your ducks in a row, especially as those three Virgo planets will be aligning with inventive and eccentric Uranus in your House of Transformation. Whatever you’re currently working on may have started out as one thing, but if you’re willing to let your subconscious come out to play then you may just end up creating that master work you always knew you were capable of. Like the great playwright Edward Albee once said, “If you’re willing to fail interestingly then you’ll tend to succeed interestingly.” Go for it!
Scorpio- If there is something that you’d like to see happen then what do you need to do to make it come true? As the Sun, Venus, and Mars all pull into your House of Dreams this week and align with Uranus in your House of partnerships, this is a time when you need to be networking and searching for connections between what you want and how to get it. Jupiter in your House of Self Worth aligning with Mercury in your House of Public Image should give you all the confidence and charisma you would need, so what are you waiting for? Both Pluto and Saturn retrograde in your House of Communication could have you still thinking like the old you that didn’t believe you deserved help, but since they’re living in the past right now why don’t you jump on the current bandwagon and see where it leads?
Sagittarius- While Jupiter in your sign and Mercury in your House of Philosophy will have you thinking big right now, the Sun, Venus, and Mars all pulling into your House of Career should provide all the nuts and bolts elements for you to move ahead significantly. Add the alignment of Uranus in your House of Work to all those planets in your House of Career and you could get a very nice surprise that will likely end up catapulting you farther than you ever thought possible. If there is a down side it will be that your responsibilities will probably increase considerably as well, but you’ve expected to pay to play all along, particularly since Saturn and Pluto have been hovering in your House of Self Worth forever. Don’t get worried and think things are suddenly moving too fast. You’ve been preparing for a while and your time has come!
Capricorn- As the Sun, Venus, and Mars all enter your House of Philosophy this week, you will probably be bursting with ideas. Since these three planets will also be in alignment with inventive Uranus in your House of Creativity, the truly unique thing about what’s happening to you now is that all of these inspirations that are coming down the pike are not pie in the sky, not by any means. All of your visions now can be realities if you’re willing to get out there and believe the world is ready for another point of view. After all, do you think the Buddha was Buddha or Mohammed was Mohammed in the grandest sense until certain unexpected circumstances transpired to give them a motivating kick in the ass? Such is the stuff the future is made of. If you don’t believe me then ask Jupiter behind the scenes whispering to Mercury in your House of Transformation, they’ll tell ya!!!
Aquarius- Change is a process, not a destination. As the Sun, Venus, and Mars all pull into your House of Transformation this week and align with Uranus at the bottom of your chart get ready to embark (or be taken away) by some life changing circumstances. With both Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes the nature of these changes will be deep, for instance they will likely be more about the way you think than the circumstances in your life, but since you’ve been wanting things to be different for a while what could be better than you changing the way you look at the world? Maybe a stifling situation won’t seem so limiting anymore if you’re no longer entertaining a limited mindset? Jupiter in your House of Groups aligning with Mercury in your House of Partnerships could see this new you attracting a whole different cast of characters into your life as well…….The more the merrier when it comes to creating a new world!
Pisces- With Neptune still in your sign illusion remains a distinct possibility for you when it comes to the ability to see the forest for the trees, however, with the Sun, Venus, and Mars all entering your House of Partnerships and opposing the King of the Sea, your friends, family, and lovers could be of great assistance now in helping you seeing what’s real in contrast to what you’d like to be real; that is, if you’ll listen to them. Jupiter in your House of Career aligning with Mercury in your House of Work will have you believing in shiny things and shiny people, though remember, if your heart isn’t connecting to the façade someone is presenting you, then don’t make the mistake of thinking you’re like them. Saturn and Pluto are still in your House of Dreams, which means the path to the top for you now will be slow and steady and anybody who tries to sell you anything else is only thinking of their own profits, not yours.
Weekly Horoscopes for 8/12-8/18, 2019
Aries- As the Sun and Venus cakewalk through your House of Fun this week and oppose a Full Moon in your House of Dreams it may be hard for you to take much of anything seriously right now. Add to this jolly trio an inconjunct of Neptune behind the scenes and it would probably be a good idea for you to hang up the “Gone Fishin’” sign and then get out of town for a bit. With 4 retrograde planets now and two of them in your House of Career it looks like everything will be pretty much on hold until September comes knocking. In the meantime, give yourself a break and relax. Once Saturn and Pluto get going direct there will be enough on your career plate to stress you for a good long time so catch some R & R while you can.
Taurus- With Uranus in your sign squaring Mercury in your House of Home and the proud sign of Leo, your comfort zone will likely be seriously challenged this week. Mercury won’t be alone in this inconvenience as the Sun and Venus are also in your Home Area and they will be opposing a Full Moon in your House of Public Image, meaning that this shit show is not going to just be about you so make sure you’re a team player now and not a selfish complainer. When Mars passes out of dramatic Leo and enters practical Virgo by the end of the week you’ll likely have wrangled any looming problems and be well on your way to a solution. With Saturn and Pluto retrograde now in your House of Philosophy now is the time to seriously commit to any necessary repairs or renovations that have been lingering. Remember, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
Gemini- As the Sun, Venus, Mars, and Mercury all pass through your House of Communication and the blustery sign of Leo, you’ll likely be working overtime telling folks things are okay when anyone with a brain knows they’re not. You make think your BS is fooling folks, but with Uranus retrograde behind the scenes your anxiety is palpable to everyone around, especially as the planet of anxiety squares Mercury in dramatic Leo. Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Transformation may have any penalties for your transgressions on hold for now, but don’t dare think you’ve dodged a bullet. Jupiter going direct in your House of Partnerships will likely mean if you haven’t been doing “The Right Thing” as of late then perhaps someone else will………So watch out if you have anything you’d like to walk back.
Cancer- The Crab is a shy creature, usually content to just dig in and stay out of the way. If that describes you my crustacean friend, then get ready for an awakening as you are dragged out of the surf and into the spotlight by the Sun, Venus, Mars, and Mercury all in your House of Self Worth and the dramatic sign of Leo. All of these fiery planets will be inconjunct to Neptune in your House of Philosophy, so of course being made the center of attention will be nerve wracking, however, that’s what you get for being honest, dependable, and talented, so get used to it. Jupiter going direct in your House of Work and Routines will soon align with Mercury so try and be patient as everyone all of a sudden starts to look to you for leadership……It’s time to face your destiny so try to keep an open mind, after all, you might actually like being the big cheese and could easily get used to it.
Leo- With the Sun, Venus, Mars, and Mercury all in your sign now the party is at your House my regal friend so get ready to hold court, particularly with a Full Moon this week in your opposing sign of Aquarius, which rules the Collective and, in your case right now, the adoring public. This doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to get famous, it might just be a matter of everyone you know simultaneously deciding that you’re their favorite person and they just want to show it. Jupiter going direct in your House of Fun could be just what it takes to put all this over the top and if it’s all about three cheers for you, then what is it exactly you’re worried about? Generally this will be a feel good time for you so try to relax and enjoy it. After all, you deserve it, don’t you?
Virgo- When Mars enters your sign at the end of the week there are two effects possible. The first is that you’ll become hypercritical (probably of yourself, which is bad) and the second is that you’ll get a burst of energy to fix anything and everything that’s broken(which is good). Leading up to this event of Mars changing signs you also will have a stellium of planets behind the scenes in the proud sign of Leo, which in turn will all be aligning nicely with Jupiter at the bottom of your chart, meaning that you’re starting to feel some real growing pains now and that might be a really good thing as far as motivating you. Since Saturn and Pluto have been camping out for a while in your House of Creativity, you probably haven’t been feeling much pep in your step so what I’ve been talking about here may just represent the inspiration that has been missing for you…… Ra, ra, ra, sis, boom, bah, if you know what I mean?
Libra- As the Sun, Venus, Mars, and Mercury transit now through your House of Groups and Dreams and the Full Moon opposes them all from your House of Creativity, you might finally get some recognition for all the hard work you’ve been doing since, well, forever! Jupiter in your House of Communication is finally direct and since the King of the Planets rules long distance stuff, whatever acknowledgements you do get now could come from a long way off, which is good if it means you’re getting acknowledged nationwide (or even internationally). Saturn and Pluto have been putting you through some challenges for quite a long time so if good news ends up coming now and there are rewards for what you’ve done then perhaps you’ll finally come to understand how all you’ve been through has been worth it……..Every stinking bit of it……Hahaha!!!
Scorpio- You could find yourself quite in demand now as the Sun, Venus, Mars, and Mercury all transit through your House of Public Image and the charismatic sign of Leo to oppose a Full Moon at the bottom of your chart. Some of this recognition could come from your family who, up until now, has pretty much made a life’s work out of underestimating you. Well, the surprise is on them as they come to realize they could all learn a bit from how you’ve dealt with life. Jupiter direct should ad to this new appreciation of you as he moves through your House of Self Worth and you find people looking to you for leadership. Of course you may think this is just about them needing someone to dump off responsibility on, but take a closer look. You’ve come a long way baby and if some of your dumb ass relatives can manage see that why can’t you?
Sagittarius- Sometimes you Centaurs can really get the wrong ideas in your head, however, with the Sun, Venus, Mars, and Mercury all in your House of Philosophy and aligning with Jupiter direct in your sign, this isn’t one of those times. You may actually be seeing yourself clearly for the first time in a while and if you’re surprised at how good you look in the mirror then the truth of who and what you are may have finally found a way to get through your thick skull. Well, maybe that’s a little harsh, but since Saturn and Pluto have been in your House of Self Worth (a long, long time) you have been so hard on yourself that nothing less than a good whack in the head could have ever got you to see things in the proper light. With that in mind, if it looks like stuff is starting to get better then assume you’ve already taken your licking and now you’re ready to keep right on ticking!
Capricorn- The Sun, Venus, Mars, and Mercury are all going through your House of Transformation now and as they oppose a full Moon in Aquarius mid-week in your House of Self Worth the time may have finally come for your make-over from a mild mannered reporter at a small metropolitan newspaper into a Super Hero. Saturn and Pluto in your sign have been grooming you for this, although it’s probably felt more like they’ve been torturing you, but of course that’s the stuff from which heroes (and heroines) are made. As Mercury quickly approaches a square to Uranus retrograde in your House of Creativity you may actually surprise yourself (like Neo in the Matrix) when you discover that when something’s on the line you will deliver far beyond anyone’s expectations.
Aquarius- With a Full Moon this week in your sign opposing the Sun, Venus, Mars, and Mercury in your House of Relationships, the big issue for you now is being appreciated for all you do. Uranus retrograde in your House of Family will be squared by Mercury for most of the week, which could bring about some fireworks if you find you’ve reached the end of your rope regarding a relative’s inconsiderate behavior. Saturn and Pluto retrograde behind the scenes have asked you to be patient about how fast things should change on the home front, but now with Jupiter going direct in your House of Groups the time has come for you to put your foot down when it comes to selfish behavior that directly takes advantage of you. And if anyone doesn’t like it, simply remind them how lucky they are that you’re putting your foot down instead of up their ass. Amen.
Pisces- The Sun, Venus, Mars, and Mercury are all passing through your House of Work so if your employment (or lack thereof) is an issue, the only way things will get better is if you’re willing to get out there and make your voice heard. All of the planets in your Work house are in the prideful sign of Leo, so if your lack of accomplishment is embarrassing you then so be it, because the only way anything is going to change is if it becomes a matter of pride for you. There will also be a Full Moon behind the scenes this week opposite all your work stuff, meaning that perhaps the powers that be are waiting to be impressed before they’re willing to offer you a cup of coffee. If you think about it that’s not such a bad deal, after all, it’s better to know you earned something than to have to worry about what someone may want on the back end for doing you a favor.
Weekly Horoscopes for 7/29-8/4, 2019
Aries- With The Sun, a New Moon, and Venus all in your sign this week you will no doubt be feeling Fab, however, since all of these planets will also be squaring Uranus in your House of Self Worth you also might end up being a little less than fabulous with anyone who’s not on your bandwagon. Mercury going station/direct in the emotional sign of Cancer and opposing Pluto in your House of Career could find you taking the ups and downs at work a little too personally, particularly if you find out that you’re not quite the legend to others that you are in your own mind. Nevertheless, Mars in your House of Creativity will ultimately help you to transform any caterpillars of frustration into butterflies of invention. So yes, you’re unsinkable, but only if you keep swimming…….Stroke, stroke, stroke…….
Taurus- Your comfort zone could get upended this week as Uranus in your sign squares the Sun, Venus, and a New Moon in your House of Foundations. Try not to get too excited if inconvenience knocks down your front door. Look at any difficulties as being growing pains rather than onslaughts against your long term stability, or worse, bad luck. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Transformation has been sending you hints that changes were in the works and as the King of the Planets continues to align with Mars in proud Leo make it a point to forge your own way if you think that any Group you’re part of is not respecting your particular needs. Saturn and Neptune retrograde can help you learn what you are capable of, but first you have to accept that you need to let go of the security of being a big fish in a small pond.
Gemini- As Uranus behind the scenes squares the Sun, Venus, and a New Moon in your House of Communication you will likely feel the urge to shoot off your mouth, just be aware that bragging to camouflage the fact that you’re feeling vulnerable isn’t fooling anyone but you, particularly as Neptune retrograde in your House of Public Image aligns with Saturn retrograde in your House of Transformation and the stuff you’re in denial about has already punched your ticket and the train is leaving without you. As Mercury, the planet of communication, goes station/direct in your House of Self Worth and starts to move into an opposition with Pluto in your House of Change, you’d be better off trying to talk with a Therapist at this time rather than spewing some Freudian bile at a world that doesn’t really care if you’re fabulous or not. The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference and that means no one is paying attention.
Cancer- Mercury going station/direct in your sign and opposing Pluto in your House of Relationships should be a cue for you to pay attention to your interactions with others and contemplate where your current frustrations are really coming from. The Sun, Venus, and the New Moon in your House of Self Worth are all squaring Uranus in your House of Dreams and Groups, meaning that perhaps you’ve inadvertently been too willing to let others control how you think rather than focusing instead on what needs to be done in order to change your life into something that’s uniquely yours. Both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Partnerships are aligning with Neptune in your House of Philosophy, meaning that perhaps the time has finally come for you to realize that your uber sensitivity can either be debilitating or freeing; it all depends on whether you can draw healthy boundaries. Remember, helicopters can’t catch jet planes.
Leo- As the Sun, Venus, and a New Moon all cross through your sign like a roman candle across the sky you’ll no doubt be feeling energetic and confident. Next, enter unpredictable Uranus in your House of Career and this week could very well likely end up being a test to see what you’re really made of. While a challenge on the job may seem like an inconvenience when it occurs, it may actually be your ticket out of a dead end situation and into a wider world of possibilities. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Creativity aligning with Mars in your sign should activate the innate sense of pride that is natural to your sign, so that when Saturn retrograde aligns with Neptune in your House of Transformation, you’ll no doubt be more ready than you’ve ever been to take the tiger by the tail, take the money and run, whatever…….Just do it!!!
Virgo- What do you want from life and what has to happen for you to get your ass in gear and go for it? The Sun, Venus, and a New Moon are all behind the scenes in your chart passing through the proud sign of Leo and telling you what you deserve, but what are you doing about it? Now here comes Uranus in your House of Philosophy and that crazy mofo ain’t gonna talk about the theory of manifestation with you, nah, he’s gonna push you in the pool and say “if y’all wanna get to the other side then start swimming. Oh, you’re getting water up your nose, so what, that’s part of it!!!” Both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Creativity aligning with Neptune in your House of Partnerships are also trying to tell you that if you can be bold enough to get after it then you’re already half-way to what you hope to be……..The rest is just a matter of time.
Libra- The Sun, Venus, and a New Moon in your House of Dreams are certainly activating your desires to succeed, however, since you’ve been slaving away at your dreams for a while now you’re probably growing more and more frustrated trying to figure out what’s missing in your success story? Chaotic, random, unexpected Uranus in your House of Transformation could be just what you need, yet you won’t know it until a synchronicity, paradox, or some other weird ass phenomenon upsets you’re oh so logical world and scares the crap out of you (in a good way, of course) so that it will become necessary for you to jump off whatever cliff you have to in order to see if you can fly. Both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Foundations have been preparing you for this, but since you can’t know what’s going to change you until it does, enter transcendental Neptune to whisper in your ear that the universe loves you, even if it seems more like an S & M affair right now than a fairy tale.
Scorpio- As the Sun, Venus, and a New Moon cross through your House of Career this week you will likely be feeling ambitious, however, be careful what you wish for. Uranus will be transiting your House of Partnerships so expect the unexpected in regards to what may be asked of you by a colleague or boss. Jupiter retrograde going through your House of Self Worth and aligning with Mars in your House of Career will be giving you a real crash course now on what it means to be in charge of a professional situation when a real shit show gets dumped in your lap to fix. This is the type of assignment that could really get you noticed, although it’s also the type of situation that could drive you crazy. As Forrest Gump used to say, “Crazy is as crazy does”…..Or was it “stupid is as stupid does?”…….Whatever…..I mean you’d have to be both crazy and stupid to agree to what you’ve agreed to, right? Just make sure you are adequately compensated not just congratulated.
Sagittarius- As your ruling planet of Jupiter lingers in your sign, this is a time when you could really learn something about the world (as well as yourself) that could propel you to the next level of awareness. It will likely begin with zany, synchronistic, paradoxical Uranus barreling through your House of Routines like a hurricane and disrupting whatever order exists in your life, either at work or at home. Next there will be the Sun, Venus and the New Moon in your House of Philosophy and the proud sign of Leo squaring crazy old Uranus, meaning that what ever shit may hit the fan at this time will likely bring out talents and courage you never knew you had! Of course you’ll be freaking out as Mercury stations in the emotional sign of Cancer and your House of Transformation while at the same time Pluto in your House of Self Worth is shaking you up like an earthquake. However, no one has to know that any of this inner stuff is going, particularly if you can manage to keep your shit together and slay whatever dragon you’re facing like a true Master. Heroes are made, not born, and this week you’ll have all the fixings you’ll need.
Capricorn-Whatever is necessary to activate your inner warrior, this week may be the time it comes barreling down the pike right at you. The Sun, Venus, and a New Moon will all be sparkling in your House of Transformation and the fiery sign of Leo, while at the same time innovative, iconoclastic Uranus will be squaring them all from your House of Creativity. This is the stuff both genius and disasters are made of, so be careful. Saturn and Pluto in your sign will be right there for you, especially as they align with compassionate Neptune, who will remind crusty old Saturn that you Capricorns are his own and well, if he’s gonna preach responsibility to you Mountain Goats then he better damn well set an example and be there for you in your time of need. Jupiter retrograde behind the scenes should give you all the poise you will require, while at the same time Mars will be right behind him to kick ass and take names. To you who are about to prevail, we salute you!
Aquarius- Your ability to be there now for someone could turn out to be as important for you as it is for them. The Sun, Venus, and the New Moon in your House of Partnerships squaring Uranus in your Symbolic Foundations could likely bring about a minor emergency that in and of itself is not all that threatening, however, the emotional bond that will be established between you and another as this situation is dealt with could be life changing for both of you. Mercury going station/direct in your House of Routines and opposing Pluto retrograde behind the scenes represent secrets revealed, meaning that you could unveil a very profound connection between yourself and someone else that makes all the difference in your respective futures. Sometimes Soul Mates have to be Hole Mates first.
Pisces- Sometimes before you can be a success you first need to be able to take pride in a job well done. The Sun, Venus, and the New Moon in your House of Work will be sowing the seeds of a true professionalism in your life now, as they are both helped and challenged by a square to chaotic Uranus in your House of Local Surroundings and Short Journeys. Do whatever is necessary and spend the extra time to get something right. It will be appreciated by whoever you’re doing it for, but more importantly it will teach you about responsibility, confidence, and pride. Both Saturn and Pluto retrograde will be impressed by your determination and as they align nicely with Neptune in your sign, you will no doubt be laying the foundations for a reputation that will be your business card for a long time to come.
Weekly Horoscopes for 7/22-7/28, 2019
Aries- With the Moon starting off the week in your sign you will no doubt be feeling ambitious, however, until the Sun and Venus change signs and enter Leo later in the week you could be feeling like things are moving too slow and people are dragging their feet. Mars in Leo will encourage you to push matters, yet with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Philosophy patience may be the pace that the Universe wants you to move at. What to do? Seeing that there are five retrograde planets now there may not be much for you to do except simply acquiesce and go with the flow. Of course you could stop complaining about the way things currently are, that would be doing something, right?
Taurus- If Uranus in your sign has been rattling your cage as of late then just wait until the Sun and Venus enter the prideful sign of Leo and your House of Foundations. Inconvenience and pride are incompatible bedfellows, which everyone around you will soon find out as you start to see red and begin acting like an enraged bull instead of a docile cow. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Philosophy and Mars at the bottom of your chart are making it very hard now for you to see any other view but your own, especially since you feel you’ve reached the end of your patience. And who could argue with you? However, try to realize, with five retrograde planets at this time matters are not going to be rectified quickly, yet with a simple change of attitude (you could ask both Saturn and Neptune retrograde for some assistance on that) you could finally find the time to do some of those things you say you never have time for…….Hmmmm……
Gemini- With three planets starting the week in the emotional sign of Cancer and your House of Self Worth, you have had no problem as of late in regards to telling the world how you feel. When these planets now in Cancer move into Leo by weeks end and join prideful Mars, it will likely become your turn to listen to how other people feel and you may not like it. What goes around, comes around, and as Jupiter retrograde in your House of Relationships hangs in a square to Neptune and a push-pull relationship with the aforementioned Mars, you may get more than a few snarky come backs from the people you’ve insulted. My advice? Keep up your left and don’t get caught flat footed, especially with Uranus behind the scenes about to be squared by those planets moving into Leo. Don’t get sucker punched by being arrogant enough to turn your back on someone you’ve pissed off.
Cancer- As Mercury goes retrograde now in your sign you’re probably feeling some old pain from the past, which may even be accompanied by the appearance of someone from way down memory lane that you really don’t want to see again. If you don’t owe this jerk anything try not to act like you do. You’ll likely get some help with this later in the week when the last of those planets that have been in your sign move into prideful Leo. Mars in your House of Self Worth aligning with Jupiter retrograde should give you the necessary chutzpah to either blow off or put in their place anyone who tries to mess with you. Remember, Crabs usually try to hide, but if you corner them they have claws like hedge shears and woe to anyone who thinks if they’re cut they won’t bleed!
Leo- Your time is coming so get ready. Mars is already in your sign and by the end of the week the Sun and Venus will be there too. This should make you feel both flamboyant and fun as well as lean, mean, and ready to rumble (not really, but you will be feeling your oats.) Your charisma should be percolating quite nicely now and with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Fun and Romance you may find that someone who has had their eye on you for a while may just decide to but a move on your beautiful bod. With five retrograde planets at this time this probably won’t end up being the love of your life, but what’s wrong with a little R & R until everything is back again in it’s usual orbit?
Virgo- PridefulMars is behind the scenes now in your chart and with Venus and the Sun about to join him the question for you at this time is, what is you want that for some reason you’re hesitant to go after? Rebellious Uranus in your House of Philosophy is making it harder to come up with excuses not to flex your desires and with Jupiter retrograde also passing along the bottom of your chart you may be reminded of past disappointments and the fact that you swore to yourself, “never again!” Well, it’s time to remember you said that and turn over a new leaf, particularly with five retrograde planets now giving you a chance to rework some of your old dreams and desires.
Libra- It’s one thing to want recognition, it’s quite another to get it and then have to deal with other people’s opportunistic agendas. When Venus and the Sun pull into your House of Dreams to join Mars you could find that something you never thought would happen is in fact going to and now, well, what are you gonna do? Mercury retrograde in your House of Public Image and the sensitive sign of Cancer could have you feeling shy, but with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Communications you will have to own what you’ve done (and said) in the past, even if you’re no longer that person, but especially if you are. Saturn and Neptune retrograde in your Houses of Foundation and routine respectively will be there to remind you that you know very well who you are and now the rest of the world is going to as well; no big deal, right?
Scorpio- Over the last month a bunch of planets have transited through your House of Philosophy and the nurturing sign of Cancer and when they did they were all in alignment with compassionate Neptune in your House of Creativity. During that time your view of life changed considerably as you witnessed both setbacks and miracles. Now you’re ready to move forward with more in your toolbox of character than ever before, so as those Cancer planets start to move into the proud sign of Leo and your House of Public Image and Career, get ready to have people look to you to take the lead because frankly, they can feel the gravitas of the new you and they want to be on that train. For you who have been through the shit, we salute you!
Sagittarius- Your sign is ruled by the planet Jupiter and as he moves retrograde now through your native territory and aligns with Mars in your House of Philosophy and the proud sign of Leo, the time has come for you to step out of the shadows and into the arena. When the Sun and Venus move into that same House of Philosophy later in the week and start to approach a square with crazy old Uranus, you may just find yourself getting pushed into that arena if you’re not willing to enter it under your own steam. Neptune at the bottom of your chart and Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth will give you a moment to get used to this harrowing new challenge of being front and center in your own life, but know that at some point they will also eventually help push you into that arena for your own good, whether you feel ready or not.
Capricorn- The big news for youthis week will be when the Sun and Venus leave your House of Relationships and enter your House of Transformation. Why do I say this? Because Mercury retrograde will remain in your Relationship House; so, what does that mean, you ask? Well, Mercury is in the emotional sign of Cancer so you will probably try to continue hiding in shysville if you can, but with those other two planets entering your House of Change and the theatrical sign of Leo, it is definitely not in the stars for you to hide at this time from anything you truly need (or that needs you). Now since we all need “Somebody to Love” what’s your problem with someone on your trail? That they might actually catch you? Hahaha……”If they weren’t meant to be sheared, God wouldn’t have made them sheep……Amen.
Aquarius- You’ve been spending the last little while worrying about how you were going to take care of…….well, probably everything, you name it…….Partners, family, bills. Well as the Sun and Venus enter your House of Relationships to join Mars you might actually be thinking for the first time, while I’m worrying myself sick about everyone else, who’s worrying about me? Why don’t you stop doing all the shit you do for a minute and see if anyone notices? When comfort zones get breached folks come running, and you’ve been managing a service for the lazy for a while. Uranus in your House of Foundation would suggest this is the sort of radical action you need to take, yet at the same time he’s also there to show you the type of neurotic, self-absorbed responses your actions will likely elicit. This will, no doubt, be a lesson learned for everyone, but you’ll get the added bonus of getting to shed some useless burdens……Well done!
Pisces- With a few planets as of late in your House of Creativity and the nurturing sign of Cancer, you have probably had a few lucky breaks that have made you feel like you’re invincible. A word to the wise, don’t get used to it because you will end up misinterpreting your next important challenge, namely taking care of yourself. As those Cancer planets move into your House of Work and the proud sign of Leo, some of your recent luck may suddenly vanish, leaving you with a choice. Either you will do nothing, assuming you deserve more luck, or, you will show some self-respect and get out there and hustle. It’s up to you, but if you really want what you say you do and, more importantly, if you deserve it, you will prove this to the universe at this time….. unequivocally, and post haste!
