This week's Horoscopes are coming out under the light of an Aries Moon, in the wake of the Third, Blood Moon Eclipse: if we're still here, all present and accounted for, then the apocalyptic gossip that preceded last night's event, was nothing but an exaggerated barrage of fear porn. Hey; it is easy to see why we might see it that way. Things are so conflictual in the heavens, it would be natural for any astrologer to translate those effects with a hard edge. My own tendency leans in that direction, but this time things feel a little different.
In the midst of changes that seem less about doom and gloom and more about waking up, my sense is that what happened last night was a milestone, one of those moments in time when every orb in the solar system was do-si-do-ing perfectly with itself, and with its fellow companions, in a cosmic dance that has spiraled the consciousness of every dancer on the planet to a whole new level. None of us are 100% clear about what is going on, and many of us are woozy from the way things get whenever the dimensions shift. Between that, the Pope and his "Magical Mystery Tour", the magnetic field fluctuations, the electromagnetic pollution, the heavy-metal particulates in the atmosphere, and the garbage that's pouring out of our wide-screen TV's, not becoming comatose is taking every ounce of strength we've got.
In looking at where things are at I realized, "My God: I could write a book about this" — but since none of us have the time, I decided to see if I could skip the technical jargon and cut to the chase.
We have been denied the privilege of knowing what there is to know about astrology. Few of us realize that there are many types of charts, and Edgar Cayce's life readings were rooted in a different Zodiac system. What struck me about last night, is that the eclipse portal was lined up on the degree of the Zodiac that coincides with the point that Edgar Cayce used to calculate the chart for the Soul, and its purpose. Loosely translated, what matters most about this eclipse is that the heart and soul of every human being on the planet was in perfect alignment with its purpose. As the Earth passed between the Sun and the Moon we were etched with information that linked us directly to our higher selves, and brought that energy into alignment with whatever our lives consist of, on the physical plane. Something is on fire in each of us.
As much as it might be important to note that Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and the Sun have recently changed signs, what is also worthy of note is that the asteroid Eros, was sitting smack dab on the North Node of the Moon, riding the eclipse axis, in a perfect conjunction with humanity's "Point of Fulfillment". Eros is an interesting asteroid. It is directly related to human sexuality, but beyond that, Eros shows up in a pivotal spot every time Mother Earth decides it's time to start the whole show over again.
"According to the Greeks, Gaia, the deep breasted Earth, was the first to emerge out of chaos. It was She who presided over the darkness until Eros came out of the Void to turn on the Love frequency. Installing the chip that opened her heart, Eros gave Mother Earth the power to birth everything in Creation — and she took it from there."

See what I mean? I really could write a book about this, but we've got fortune's to tell and charts to do. I am no authority on anything but what I think is going on right now is that whether we are consciously aware of it or not, a higher kind of light has been turned on inside all of us, and it has filled us with enough love to turn the world around. Give that some thought, as you enjoy this week's scopes.
ARIES: (March 21 – April 20): Changing horses in midstream is hard enough. You don't need to complicate it by fretting over how it's going to come together. If you're walking your talk this'll be like a hot knife through soft butter. It's like the dominoes have been lined up since the day you were born. All you have to do is keep showing up. There's never any big announcement to tell us we finally figured it out. This will all become clear in retrospect. Those of you who aren't having a whole lot of fun need to review your complaints in light of what you know about who's in charge of creating your reality.
TAURUS: (April 21 – May 20): You are off the hook in ways that are about to give you time to remember what you're here for. The thrust of accomplishment, along with a lot of goal oriented issues have left you wondering, once again, what you're here for. These things change in cycles because that's how we grow. You have a whole raft of possibilities to turn to, but part of you is wondering if what you have to leave behind is still breathing. At the end of the day it comes down to, don't stay in any situation that keeps you depleted and depressed. Use this time to gather up the faith to follow your heart.
GEMINI: (May 21 – June 20): The business of being you is a lot like being a fire-fly. You have enough energy to get around and light up anywhere you want. Your ability to bring the best of yourself to everything you do gets hampered when people start expecting you to keep the light on all the time. All of who you are, is willing to be whatever people want or need you to be. You run into trouble when you don't know enough to turn off the lights and return to a place that allows you to restore your soul. Being all things to all people doesn't do you, or them any good. Take off long enough to reclaim yourself.
CANCER: (June 21 – July 20): It's funny how there's a huge gap between what we 'think' we want, and what really gets us going, at the end of the day. You've been keeping your show on the road long enough to know what I'm talking about. This all seems so perfect, and for some reason you're not here for it. Being out of synch is not a crime. What you are panicked over, is the idea that something needs correction. Being at peace with things will require you to tell the truth about where you are at. Too much nothing, and not enough of what matters has got you wondering if there's any point to this.
LEO: (July 21 – August 20): It's amazing how good you are at making the best of everything. It looks like huge tests, and miles of wisdom have turned what could have gone down the wrong path in a whole new direction. The business of figuring out how to create a solution instead of one more problem is about to move you to the next step, if it hasn't already. Keeping it simple and knowing your limits is imperative. Being there for others is part of it too. Somehow or other, if you can maintain the sweetness with your loved ones, and in your friendships, it will uplift everything.
VIRGO: (August 21 – September 20): You have no clue what's going on or how anything is going to work. Getting pressed up against the future, when there's nothing between you, and it, is a little freaky. You're someone who needs more certainty than this, but, don't expect it to show up any time soon. All of us are challenged by the physics of expanding consciousness. The main trick is going to involve letting go of the idea that your brain has all the right answers. The answers are coming in omni-directionally. Close your eyes, and open up to the thought that you have at least 10,000 miracles at your disposal.
LIBRA: (September 21 – October 20): You guys are holding it together at a moment in time when everything is hanging on a thread. The only thing that seems certain is the idea that wherever you want to go, there's no way to get there from here. As the next month unfolds, the need to wrap things up, and themes that suggest you're ready for anything but this, will make you less aware of the need for patience and an iron clad ability to keep the faith. This is no time for fun and games. And if you're going to spend time with people, respect your own need to be only there for those who strengthen you.
SCORPIO: (October 21 – November 20): It's good that you finally have the support that you need. Those of you who have been at the mercy of forces that are outside of your control, have reached a point where you are no longer beholden to them. Coming down from being hog-tied to people, places, and things, you are opening up like a flower. And you have recently discovered that happiness has never been as complicated as you've made it. The simple things, and the thought that something new and more precious is coming to life as we speak, will help you hold steady as your future plans come to fruition.
SAGITTARIUS: (November 21 – December 20): You shine things on better than anyone I know. This creates the impression that you are made of steel. Your work has required 300% for the last few month. At this point, your ability to shine things on is having trouble reconciling the fact that you've taken on too much. This isn't the first time you've been here. Scaling back, and paring things down, is definitely on the menu. And as big as your capacity to love, and handle it all happens to be, at the moment, you haven't got enough back up for things that are bound to require more from you than this as time goes on.
CAPRICORN: (December 21 - January 20): A the dust settles on issues that have put all of you through the ringer, you're either totally on fire, or completely burnt out. As one thing transforms into another, the message seems to be, nothing changes until we do. This begs so many other questions, if you're thinking, you're wondering either, how you created this miracle, OR, how you messed up a wet dream. If you're in denial about the latter, it could take a while for you to come to terms with the truth. The story of your life is unfolding in ways that are bringing all of your Karmic chickens home to roost.
AQUARIUS: (January 21 – February 20): You need to ease everything onto a whole new platform, one that allows you to bring the light of day into the space that allows you to do what you love. For too long your passion has been co-opted by forces who have been paying you by the hour, in exchange for your life. As you review the things that count, right now it comes down to your roots. The ground under your feet, the place where you live, your peeps, and your tribe; going back to whatever all of that implies will open your eyes to another set of possibilities and a future that includes all the things you love.
PISCES: (February 21 – March 20): Give yourself a few more weeks to decide. Too many variables, along with the voice in your head that goes on and on, keep you from knowing exactly how to handle this. Those close to you are good for some things, and not so good for others. Being in charge could be coming up for you, and it's not your favorite place to be. A mixture of interesting new possibilities, competes with the idea that you wish you could get back to square one. You don't need to obsess. Right now, it's less about having all the answers than it is about letting serendipity show you the way.
