The Sun’s visit to Leo~

The Sun is now in Leo!

Leo Sun, 2018

 

The Sun will be in its natural dignity as it enters Leo, to last until Wednesday, August 22. Leo, the sign of creative expression, loyalty, and leadership is ruled by the Sun, the galaxy’s brightest star, giving you a unique opportunity to shine and release the part of you that longs for recognition. While Cancer, the preceding sign is emotional and internal, Leo is light hearted and extroverted. Keep this in mind when encountering a situation that requires you to act with confidence, for this is what Leo does best!

 

ARIES (March 21- April 19)

Parties and other social festivities will keep you feeling fresh and up to date. You’ll have extra sex- appeal, so take advantage and take the stage whenever possible. If you’re an actor or other performing artist, now is the time to get yourself seen, as your talent will make you stand out. If you’re currently not involved in a project, create one; a showcase, script-reading, screening, or other self-produced event will likely be a fabulous way to build creative momentum.

 

TAURUS (April 20 -May 20)

Throw a dinner party with an exclusive invitation list, and you’ll shine light on your most cherished relationships. Give your living space a lift with a new look that brings in as much Sun as possible, as this will lift your mood and keep you in good spirits. Throw a game night if you need some new company, as you’ll likely come out a winner in more ways than one! If you have children in your life, extra play time will add sunshine to your life as you experience the joy of childhood.

 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

Creative writing will bring out the best in you, so if an idea for a short story of poem comes to you, put pen to paper (or your fingers to your i-pad), and you’ll be on a roll. Take a master class from great story tellers such as Judy Blume, Shonda Rhymes, or indulge in a little Shakespeare, and you’ll set your imagination to new heights. If you’re in sales (a most people are in one way or another) you’ll have impressive powers of persuasion. Hold true to your strongest opinion, observation, or analysis and your confidence will soar.

 

CANCER (June 22-July 22)

Put the spotlight on your talent and what makes you unique, as this will likely lead to a new money making opportunity. What are you really good at Cancer? You’ll benefit from giving this serious thought, especially if you’re an aspiring entrepreneur. An updated wardrobe, new hair style, or new piece of furniture will add a touch of luxury to your life to help you feel like the extra special person you are. This is the time to treat yourself, and uphold the value of your natural talent.

 

 LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Whatever you dare to do or be, now is the time to step into the spotlight and make it happen. With the galaxy’s brightest star (the Sun) shining in its natural sign of Leo, you’ll have the vitality to set a new personal best. Leo is a sign of fixed, fiery energy, so when you put your mind to going for what you want, it’s over…the gold medal is practically in your hands! Enter a triathlon and unleash the warrior within, open your heart of hearts to someone special, or make a surprise appearance, and you’ll shine.

 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Dream a little dream and before long it will likely become a grand inspiration, so pay attention to the quiet voice within, and the images that linger with you after you awake. As the Sun enters Leo your chart’s most mystical arena will ignite, known in astrology as the twelfth house. The twelfth house is like the gate way between reality and other dimensions that are felt but not seen. Your greatest power will come from your intuition and gut instinct- if it feels right, it will likely feel very right. Follow your inner compass and you’ll likely land exactly where you need to be.

 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Step into the crowd and become part of a vision or cause that’s bigger than you, and you’ll find new inspiration to propel you forward toward a long term goal. You’ll have a way with people now, and can get the attention of a VIP if you develop a full proof strategy and stick with it. If your best friend or closest colleague invites you to an exclusive party or public event, by all means go because you’ll likely make an important connection. Be mindful that a modest introduction may in fact turn out to be a real game changer down the road, as someone who can pull a lot of strings may initially test your true intentions with a very low key persona.

 

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Now the Sun (the solar system’s brightest star) is at the pinnacle of your chart, and will put your greatest ambition in the spotlight. If you’re in transition and looking for a bigger and better opportunity, have courage to take a risk and let others know where you’re headed because your confidence will be contagious. Look for an opportunity to showcase what you do. A symposium, conference, or expo will likely give you a fabulous platform to shine will also attracting a quality opportunity. Above all, know that you are a natural leader. Once you relax into this wisdom, you’ll allow the flow of success to flow through you.

 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Leo, like Sagittarius, is also a fire sign, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself feeling more like your usual optimistic self. Travel as much as you can, as meeting new people and having new life experiences will help you gain perspective and realize what’s really important in your life. If a citizenship matter or global pursuit is on your agenda, rest assured that justice will prevail. Have faith that the best outcome is within your reach, as this will make it easier to attract the help you’ll need to successfully reach your final destination. Self-promotion is well starred for you now, so if you have a service or product that needs exposure, put yourself out there, and you’ll blossom like a sunflower.

 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your ability to let go of what you no longer need will release you from an unconscious fear and free you to pave a new direction. Someone close to you will likely give you a new awareness about a lingering burden or responsibility- so if you feel yourself resisting, ironically, it will likely be a good sign. Now is also a wonderful time to examine your relationship with money, as this will likely lead you to psychological breakthrough that will release a chain reaction of positive change and personal development.

 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The spotlight will shine on your most important relationship as the Sun shines in your complementary sign of Leo. This doesn’t mean you won’t get your fair share of attention, on the contrary. Your best friend, sweetheart, father, or loyal confidant will likely give you a push when you most need it, which will likely lead you exactly where you need to be headed. This is a time to pay attention to the advice you receive, for it will likely contain a beautiful kernel of wisdom that will help you become a better partner.

 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Give a helping hand whenever you get the opportunity Pisces, and in turn you’ll likely breathe life into an untapped talent or skill. Listen carefully to a complement you receive from your co-worker, assistant, or someone who offers a specialized service to you, as he or she will likely hit the mark. The Sun’s journey through Leo will encourage you to simplify your life and find a way to do good in the world. In order to do this effectively however, you’ll likely need to give your well-being extra attention. Consider a personal trainer or nutritionist to help you get on the right track, as expert assistance will help your reach your personal best.

Solar Eclipse in Cancer- A New Emotional Journey

Solar Eclipse in Cancer

A New Emotional Journey

Solar Eclipse in Cancer July 12, 2018

Follow the gleam. Alferd Lord Tennyson

 

July’s solar eclipse in Cancer takes place on July 12, 10:48 p.m. EST, and will usher in new opportunities, changes, and fresh starts that will set the stage for 2019. Solar eclipses are all about new life chapters and will open a window of opportunity for you to leave behind what’s not working and start with a clean slate.

This particular eclipse is a Partial Eclipse, and although on the one hand is fairly common, will have special significance because of its direct opposition to Pluto, the farthest (yet arguably most potent) planet from the earth. In mythology Pluto is God of the Underworld, a tyrant who has the power to entrap and seduce to ensure he gets his way, at all costs. Those who have Pluto predominate in their chart often carry a ruthless, power driven edge that unleashes their deepest fears and desires, for better or worse.

Now in Capricorn, an earth sign that symbolizes structure, resilience, and material achievement, Pluto’s influence will encourage you to find the deepest cracks of your life so they can be permanently sealed. If you have Cancer or Capricorn strong in your chart, you will feel the effect of this eclipse most strongly, although all signs will experience a noticeable shift in a particular area of life.

 

ARIES (March 21- April 19)

A relocation, estate, or family concern will require you to keep your emotions in check and take on a higher leadership role. If something in your personal life is keeping you off balance, squarely address it, and new energy will open for you to strive for a professional milestone.

TAURUS (April 20 -May 20)

Justice will shine through with a legal settlement, sibling, global pursuit, or negotiation, but you’ll need to hold on to your moral compass and trust that you have the strength to do the right thing. Know your rights, but also have respect for policies in place, and you’ll earn new found respect.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

Trust that your money will work for you once you decide on who or what entity to partner with. Have a strong hold on what belongs to you, yet the wisdom to let go of what you longer need, and you’ll create a new opportunity for long term wealth.

CANCER (June 22-July 22)

Fundamental changes you’ve almost given up on will start to give way, but you’ll need to have the courage to change your perspective and trust that what comes your way is absolutely meant for you. Discern your instinct from your ego, and your humility will bless you with unprecedented power.

 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Listen to your body, as this will help you create balance where you most need it. A new way of life that honors your inner self will ironically increase your productivity and ultimately make you a force of nature. First however, you’ll need to succumb to the fragility of your human nature.

 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Virgo isn’t much for crowds, but this solar eclipse will encourage you to spread your wings and break free from your own inhibition. Take the lead, extend an invitation, throw a party, let others know how much you want to give, and slowly but surely, your creative spirit will blossom.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Give all yourself when helping others, and although at times you may feel unseen, your efforts will yield long lasting results that will awaken your life purpose and lay the foundation for your legacy. Know in your heart that you already have within you what you want to be; the rest is divine timing.

 

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Dare yourself to think bigger than you ever have, and you’ll find a nugget of truth that will set the Jeanie out of the bottle. Test your logic against your faith, Scorpio, and in that space you’ll discover a secret wish that belongs only to you. In this wish lies the spark of your highest spiritual quest.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Now is the time to face your private fears about not having or being enough so you can embark on new terrain. Dive deep into the waters of vulnerability, and even if you cannot swim, trust that you will be rescued. Your talent is like gold; respect its value and prosperity will follow you, in devotion.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Unpeel the layers of your closest relationship, and you’ll likely realize you and your partner are more deeply entwined than you could ever imagine. Accept any insecurity you may feel as a gift, and you’ll create a healing space of fertile soil which can give way to eternal roots for your deepest union.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

A new feeling of vitality, focus, and innocence is possible for you, but you’ll need to face your demons before you see the light of where you’re truly headed. What seems like a detour will likely turn out to be a blessing in disguise, and the stronger your self-knowledge, the faster you’ll find the right path.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Invite love into your heart Pisces, as this will give you the power to change your future for the better, and steer your ship against the fiercest winds. Your child, sweetheart, or creative passion holds the key to an expanded vision for your life. Honor this fact, and you’ll see a whole new world that’s held in place by your biggest dream.

2018 Yearly Forecast

2018

Yearly Horoscope for Every Zodiac Sign

The most difficult thing to give is that which we give up. Elizabeth Bibesco

ballet-dancers-the-art-of-movement-nyc-dance-project-ken-browar-deborah-ory-137-57ee123fd1164__700

Themes of positive self-expression and collaborative thinking will make 2018 a year to reap the rewards of being proactive and stepping out as your true self. This year will also challenge you to broaden your perspective about your role in your community, social circle, a political cause, or other collective vision that’s much bigger than you (the ‘me too’ movement is a good example). You will likely have to loosen the reigns in an area of your life that makes you feel confident; whether its work, parenthood, sexuality, or creativity, you’ll do best if you take courage to take a different route and go outside your comfort zone. If you’re a natural team player, you’ll feel stimulated. If you’re more of a one on one person however, you’ll need an extra push to get you in the mix, where others will notice you and help you make a lasting impact.

Material stability will give you food for thought as your personality completes a unique makeover that has brought you much wisdom. Think about the part of your life that seemingly has caused you the most havoc in the past several years. Your love life, finances, career, or family- for example…that presented you with so many opportunities to make a fresh start, but no matter how hard you may have tried, you just couldn’t seem to get it right. Well- this year will offer you that one last chance to finally ‘get’ it. As a result, you’ll make a great achievement, as you’ll experience a new level of mastery that will highlight your unique brilliance in a particular area of your life.

As you reach the end of this process, you’ll notice circumstances will start changing, and the pattern you once thought was inescapable will open up. Be mindful and carefully watch what happens. Whether this involves a psychological or emotional experience or you see events clearly played out, you will come to a certain “knowing”, and it will feel so refreshing! When this happens, you’ll have an opportunity to get connected with a new kind of reality, which will encourage you to make an important life change. A value you once had will likely fade away as you become a new (and better) person. Your security, self- esteem, possessions, and overall comfort level will come to the forefront of your life experience, and no matter what your financial status- you’ll likely want to have an impressive net worth.

What does this look like for you? If you could have an impressive net worth, how would your life have to change? How would you need to change? This year, in 2018 you’ll have an opportunity to make a clean start toward that total net worth sum. Of course I encourage you to think beyond dollars, although if you truly desire wealth, go for it! Beyond an abundance of valuable possessions and money however, what does wealth mean to you? Whether its power, freedom, luxury, comfort, a mix of all, or something else that has great meaning for you, pay attention to what you value this year…what makes you feel like a million dollars, and you’ll be on your way to making 2018 a year where you come out as winner.

Major Planetary Events

There are four eclipses in 2018. Three will ignite the Leo Aquarius axis (the last will arrive in Cancer). If you are a Leo or Aquarius, get ready for lots of changes! If you are a Cancer, a new frontier is waiting for you, so have your sights set on a new future. Uranus, the planet of freedom, innovation, fame, and unexpected change will leave Aries and will make its grand entrance in Taurus on Tuesday, May 15. This will mark a new chapter that will last until July 8, 2025.

Life changing events for the next 7 years will involve Taurus themes: material stability, physical comfort and pleasure, personal values, and ownership. If you are a Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, or Aquarius (which comprise all the zodiac’s fixed energy signs)  this new chapter will greatly impact your life’s direction. All signs, however, will definitely feel a part of their life changing in ways that will eventually create a solid foundation for long term stability.

ARIES (March 21- April 19)

It’s time to wrap your personal reinvention and start collecting. New ways of making money will take you in the stratosphere of your industry. You’ll have the ability to get the resources you need to expand. A business loan, mortgage, venture capital, merge, or other financial partnership will expand your options and empower you. If you’re serious about financial growth, do all you can to get the process going, and consult an expert if you need guidance. He or she will likely be a great help to you. In matters of the heart, show your true self and leave nothing to hide, as this will truly set you free, and strangely enough, will help you find a bigger place in the world.

 

TAURUS (April 20 -May 20)

In the beginning of the year your life will linger behind the curtains, but come Spring, the red carpet will roll out, and ready or not, and a new life path will usher you in the spot-light. If you have stage fright, you’ll likely resist and want to run behind the curtains to take a nice deep breath. If you can handle it, everything will look new, and magical, and wonder if what you’re experiencing is really real. Either way, your life’s foundation will being to shift, or you’ll have to stay very aware so you don’t fall between the cracks. What is your greatest weakness Taurus? Embrace it, as this year it will likely become your greatest strength.

 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

You’ll feel bounced around like a tennis ball as you juggle your life’s daily demands. Communication, organization, and time management will become the key to your sanity throughout 2018. Try not get too wrapped up in logistics- as this will only slow you down. Think of the big picture first, and then you’ll know where to zoom in. If you have a psychological or emotional pattern that’s preventing you from being your best self, circumstances will likely usher you to stop, look, and listen. Make that change Gemini, only you’ll know what it is, and in that knowing you’ll have incredible power to make a personal breakthrough.

 

CANCER (June 22-July 22)

Know what your worth is, Cancer, as 2018 will give you a chance to become a higher earner. Whether you work for an organization or for yourself, you’ll break new ground by having clarity about what’s most important to you, and knowing what’s required to get there. It’s likely you already have the skills and talent to reach an ambitious goal. The real question is, do you have the resources? Focus on developing relationships with key people who have an in to the place where you seek entrance, and you’ll make an impressive debut. Once you get out of your shell, you’ll likely not want to go back!

 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Who do you enjoy being with the most Leo? Whether this is your spouse, sweetheart, best friend, child, or other important person, know that he or she has a special gift for you this year. When you’re with this person, part of you comes alive. You feel fresher, more care free, and more like your true self. If you nurture the magical effect he or she has on you, you’ll bring this magic, (which is really a special part of your own character) to other areas of your life outside your relationship, and exciting new possibilities will begin to surface. No matter your age, think- ‘what would I like to be when I grow up’? As this will guide you to what will become your priority for 2018: befriending your destiny.

 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Search from within the recesses of your mind and soul, and every day you’ll experience a miracle. Most will likely be small, but miracles all the same. The more you notice the magic, the bigger the miracles will become, and by the end of 2018, you’ll feel pure and revitalized, yet strong as steel. This year you’ll likely have to confront what you would rather not see, but as soon as you decide to shine the light on the darkness, you’ll experience the power of spiritual resilience. Have courage as you self-reflect, and you’ll breathe new life into the next chapter of your life’s mission. There are many others who are waiting to benefit from all you have to give, but you must be fully self-aware to give justice to your gift.

 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Finding new ways to express yourself creatively will lead you to the sunnier side of the street. The key is to stay motivated, Libra. You thrive on friendship and social interaction, yet, this year, you’ll benefit from getting more into you. Make an effort to discover new things about yourself, and the connectedness you crave will naturally happen (especially if you’re single and looking). If you drift away from a close friend or colleague, know that it’s likely for good reason. Pride yourself in the ability to detach and remain objective, and strangely enough before you know it, your heart will open… and love will find you.

 

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This year will make you feel like you can always find a way to get a yes, (even in the most convoluted circumstances). As a result, your success will shift your productivity in fifth gear. Many times you’ll feel like you’re coasting when in fact you’ll break barriers- most likely in your career. What you’ll need to focus on is inner stability, especially in your personal life. How do you create that balance between your inner world and outer world? This balance doesn’t’ have to be an even 50/50, but it will have to feel right for you. Honor your emotional needs, and you’ll find a flow that will help you reach a higher level of mastery in your of relationships, and profession.

 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Life will definitely feel easier than last year, but ironically you’ll have less flexibility. Travel (a vital part of Sagittarius’s raison d’etre) will offer you a different perspective that’s long overdue. Once you’re exposed to a different way of life, religion, or philosophy, you’ll experience a new found freedom. This will give you the space you need to develop your own ideas about politics, religion, and everything in between. Let the winds of change be your guide and gradually, you’ll become an original thinker with a unique mission. Become one with what you most aspire to and believe in your heart, and gradually, you’ll adapt to a new lifestyle that lies on the edge of rock star euphoria.

 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The more you let go and allow yourself to be vulnerable, the stronger you’ll feel, especially in your closest relationship. A financial risk will likely require you to reassess your bottom line. As a result, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of your values, which are likely changing. Be open to discovering new things about yourself, as this will likely lead to a new and improved lifestyle that’s a true reflection of new you. Simplicity will become your magic word as strive to get down to essentials and get rid of anything you don’t need. This will likely include an emotional attachment with someone close to you. Once you create a little psychological space for yourself you’ll gain invaluable wisdom.

 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Get ready to be carried in a positive a new direction by the winds of fate Aquarius. Your sweetheart, spouse, or business partner will see the undeveloped potential in you, so you can trust he or she will have your best interest in in mind. At times you’ll likely feel stretched to your limits, only to discover how resilient you are. With this discovery will also come a responsibility, and that will involve an honest self-examination of how well you’re managing your life, especially your long term goals. Once you learn to dance with changing circumstances you’ll discover a rhythm all your own, and you’ll finally begin to feel like you’re in the flow- yet also ready to embrace change.

 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your main challenge this year will involve mastering your mind body connection. As the zodiac’s last sign, Pisces encompasses knowledge from all preceding signs. This can help you intuitively create balance where you need it most. You’ll have an excellent opportunity to explore all parts of your personality, which will allow you to transform your greatest weakness into your greatest strength. Regular exercise and sleeping patterns will keep you on top of your game. Yet, there will likely be times where you’ll just want to check out and recharge. Consider slight changes in your daily routine every several months, as this will keep you mentally agile and physically grounded.

The Sun is in Aquarius!

The Sun is now in Aquarius!

Aquarius

The universe is made up of stories, not atoms.  Muriel Rukeyser

The Sun’s journey through the constellation of Aquarius will last until Sunday, February 18. As the zodiac’s third air sign, Aquarius reflects the mature intellectual who thrives off objectivity. Aquarius is also infamous for being the best friend who forever remains loyal. While the Sun shines in Aquarius, you’ll have an opportunity to show up for a friend, become more active in your community, and create emotional distance from an ongoing circumstance that requires you to stretch your personality. This will help you gain wisdom as you strive to do bigger and better things, as Aquarius is also the sign of higher vision and new possibilities.
