Aries (March 20-April 19)
Let's face it--change has been the most consistent thing of late. With the amount of novelty I see in your chart these days, I suspect that there may have been (or still may be) periods of vertigo, instability, and/or bliss depending on your level of comfort with mystery. There's no constancy with that either, it's a day-to-day thing, so no beating yourself up for feeling insecure or fits of bravado. Remember: we're all in a state of becoming...it's kind of why we're here. More than ever perhaps, you will need that experience of novelty to work with the powerful energy available this week. It's not the kind of energy that can be shaped and formed. It needs to be free...I know you know the importance of THAT.
Taurus (April 19-May 20)
There's a new island being born just off the coast of the "Big Island", Hawaii, by an underwater volcano. I sense the same type of clandestine building has been underway with you and the construction (or destruction--there can be a fine line between the two) will be quite busy this week. The building/dismantling will have something to do with your values around sex and love. The message at the very beginning of the week is: the more you take responsibility for your role in this project, the more harmony you will feel with others. If you take up this mantle of responsibility, you will be more ready than ever to approach love in a new way. Suggested ruminations: What have I been hiding? What have I been ignoring? What is my ideal?
Gemini (May 20-June 21)
We don't live in a world that values creative, spiritual thinking or actions so it is extremely difficult to act with integrity day in and day out. While most of the time you can come to some workable agreement with yourself about how to navigate both realities, lately, I suspect, it's been pissing you off. Why can't you live the life you want to, speak the truths that you feel, and be recognized and accepted as you are? You can of course, but they come with certain ramifications and responsibilities, and this may not be the right time to force the issue. This week I suggest walking the talk among your supportive friends and allies and midweek, initiate some intention to objectify this dynamic in order to get a better perspective.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Looks like things are inverted on you lately: like the shell is on the inside protecting inner vulnerabilities in those areas of life that have you relating to others. Forget about the plumbing this week: male and female both will be projecting the protective, nurturing mother from the wraths of this, let's face it, violent world. Embodying the Mother gives you the unique ability to care for and guide anything that needs help: your relationships, your ethics, and maybe most important this week, your sense of your place in the world. All are vulnerable at this time and all need your strength, attention and care. Your career, reputation, or perhaps, relationship with a parental figure have an opportunity to initiate something new this week. How can you take care of life in these areas?
Leo (July 22-August 23)
Have you actually let your guard down around boundaries lately? Letting others get the attention? Willingly or not I suspect that this may be the case with more of this dynamic to come this week. The good thing about this is, so necessary too, is that you have this amazing opportunity to create without being attached to the way it's received...you can create simply out of the sense of truth that you recognize in your art. Sure, that's the intention all the time, I'm sure, however there is something happening this week that will feel completely different and new about this principle. It will become a deep part of your ethics and integrity if you work with the energy.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
It's been so hard for you to sift through the wheat for what's most important lately because EVERYTHING seems so important. Really, there has been so much erraticism is relationship dynamics (intimate or business): money, property, sex, possessions...it has just left a fog over all your relationships. This upheaval is not happening without its purpose it's just that right now may not be the time to understand the overall lessons. Right now has more to do with acting on the initiative of the moment. Right action, in accord with right thinking will bring the healing and insight needed to transform these key relationships. The time is always now. The place is where you are. The one to act is you.
Libra (September 22-Octoner 23)
The beat goes on. Things are not getting any quieter this week. This could work either or both of these ways: you could feel stress around relationships and are trying to figure out how to balance your needs and desires with the needs and desires of others--and/or you are in energetic harmony with your inner needs and so is your partner and there is mutual bliss occurring. However this is working out, things are definitely not boring. This is a great week to set new intentions around your autonomy in relationships. Your planetary ruler, Venus, is wrapped up in the New Moon on Wednesday and is occurring in your 7th Solar House. How can you honor the distance that has to exist between you and you love?
Scorpio (October 23-November 22)
You will continue to put your energies into redefining who you are and how you approach the world. This is no overnight project by any means however you are intensely involved in it this week. This week the focus will continue with the changes taking place around what you do for work and how you serve others best. I think there will be an opportunity to purge yourself of conditioned values around your gifts, that is, it may be that you don't feel you have the outlet for full expression of your creativity--that will come to consciousness. With this will be an opportunity to embrace, take hold of, and then change the way you conceive of these things. When (if) you do, you will find a wellspring of ideas.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 22)
You work best with information when you have the opportunity to integrate and form a cohesive synthesis however, lately you've been in the data gathering stage and that's not your most desired station. It's a necessary part of any system of truth nonetheless and you will continue to expand your rolodex as more people, hence, more ideas come your way. Your tendency may be to resist the information coming your way since it does not fit your world view and I would caution you to relax your own ideas. Consider it a consciouness expansion project: accept any and all bits of information that comes your way from every strange character you may meet. See what happens when you decide you don't know what's right and wrong...it may be a gateway to a creative explosion.
Capricorn (December 22-January 20)
More than ever you are feeling the weight of embodiment. Depending on your level of acceptance of this situation, you will feel that much in control or that much resistance to the current push towards evolution in your chart. Who you are becoming has a lot to do with how you will be received by others so there is a natural withdrawal right now from communal spirit and into the womb. This is very much a chrysalis time with the opportunity to dissolve outdated ideas, deep rooted genetic memories, and messages from your shadow. It's natural that there is no clear picture, no clean image of what's happening. Make friends with your shadow, if you haven't already, for there is the key to shaping the new image for others to see.
Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
The body is generally the only part of our existence that lives essentially in the now. I suspect that you realize this more than ever these days as your mind races simultaneously into the future and gets stuck in the past. This tug of war is creating an intense vibration, perhaps even confusion in your day. Every outlet is there, and great reward as well, for you to use these images racing into your consciousness for creative purposes. There may be the urge to experiment sexually, try something new or simply fantasize. While these images and ideas may run counter to your typical ethics, the energy may be there for you to re-evaluate those ethics to find if they are truly yours, or a result of early childhood conditioning.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
I think there's a big picture, long term lesson being offered about how to make dreams come true. I know, you may be thinking that's kind of a bull shit thing to say but seriously, there may be no other way to say this. You are already drawn to the abstract, more subtle energies of life. There has always been that energy to express what others do not readily see and this is true whether you live as an artist, work as a salesman, or spend most of your time in an office. You see things others do not and it's generally a strength of yours. Now is a time to think more about the nuts and bolts of dreams and images that I think may have been flooding your mind. What are the steps to take? What will it feel and look like in the "real" world?
