MARCH HOROSCOPES

“In those days I coerced oracular assurance
In my favour out of every sign.”
― Ted Hughes

 PISCES/PISCES RISING ♓︎

The changing tides are sweeping through your life and March could make you feel like re-evaluating your allegiances. There are a lot of questions in the air at the moment and you might be wondering about your next step – which is closely linked to your partnerships. Relationships will be a big theme this month for everyone. You are caught between your own needs and the difficult requirements of a relationship, either personal or professional. A tension that has been building  for the last several months is ready to be addressed. This could be related to your investments versus the investments of someone else and you could be struggling to find the middle ground. A good dose of pragmatism coupled with a trust in the unfolding process is required. Find inspiration in your current limitations and you will be pleasantly surprised at what you are able to come up with. Pisceans are endowed with the ability to see a kingdom in a grain of sand. There is no reason to let cynicism swallow the part of you that  believes in the inherent goodness of others. The Sun in Pisces until March 20 will illuminate your inner landscape allowing you to assess where you are in relation to where you would like to be. Take advantage of this light to clarify what is obscured and to reconnect with your sense of vitality, power, and authority.

ARIES/ARIES RISING ♈︎

Venus goes retrograde in the middle of your sign this month. On March 4, the planet we most often connect with beauty, relationships, attraction, money, and values is moving backward. There is no reasons to panic. First of all, Venus only appears to be moving  backward from our perspective here on Earth. Venus turns retrograde approximately every 18 months in various signs of the Zodiac. Last time she/he did her little retro dance in your sign was in 2009. If you want to have some insights as to what this retrograde could mean for you, think back to March and April of 2009. Is there anything significant that was happening then in regard to relationships, love, art, money or beauty? In other news, the Sun moves into your sign on March 20. Until then, spend some time integrating the lessons of the last year. Clean out your mental and physical closet and if you can, spend some time assessing your achievements. You could be feeling extra slow or lacking energy in the first part of the month so do not push yourself to climb mountains unless you really have to. Collaborations and partnerships with others could feel extra tedious but also extremely rewarding so use patience and understanding to get what you want.

TAURUS/TAURUS RISING ♉︎

A lot of good things can come out of our limitations and life’s minor annoyances often serve to lead us toward what we need. Often this process happens without our awareness and it’s only looking back that we understand the valuable lessons hidden in our troubles. March could be one of those months where you have little patience for the road blocks and curve balls thrown your way. You might find it harder than usual to stay cool-headed and you will have to work extra hard to stay tolerant. This could be a valuable lesson especially in regard to understanding your own process when it comes to what drives you. Passion and anger are two sides of the same coin and one cannot exist without the other. What fuels you can also destroy you and that is where the secret of your struggle lies this month. Your dreams could collide against a need for pragmatism and some sacrifice will need to be made. It is not enough to work day and night to achieve our goals; keeping a sense of perspective and even slowing down will allow for the quality you so desire and are known for. Your inherent appreciations for things well made does not mix well with deadlines and stress. Remember this when you rush to get everything accomplished this month.

GEMINI/GEMINI RISING ♊︎

It looks like all of your inspiration this month will come from your wider social circle. You could feel imbued with a new sense of optimism in regard to your calling and ready to put the efforts needed to succeed. March could be a busy month at work and there could be a bit of tension in your personal life as a result of this.  The Full Moon in Virgo on March 12 could bring matters  to a head on the home front and you might have to deal with some unpleasant responsibilities there. March is a good month for socializing even though some unresolved tensions keep threatening your peace. The support you need continues to be available if you want it but the help won’t come on its own; you will have to ask for it. There could be an old acquaintance coming back into your life or you could find yourself going back in time to a place you used to hang out. Either way, expect a surprising blast from the past to come and haunt you. There is a good mix of ambition and creativity available to you this month so don’t squander it on trivial arguments and let sleeping dogs lie. You do not want to waste all of your precious energy on things that do not really matter. Keep your goal in your mind’s eye and monopolize on the opportunities which are knocking at your door.

CANCER/CANCER RISING ♋︎

Your intuition reached new levels in the last few months and you have been able to tap into a fantastic reservoir of insights. This is serving you well and you can apply your findings onto innovative projects. The only down side of being finely in touch with the rhythm of nature is that you can’t tune out and disconnect. Your level of receptivity is such at the moment that you can easily tap into the collective cloud. However, sorting out which transmissions are meant for you and which ones should be left alone is not easy. The problem with receiving a bunch of confusing signals is knowing how to process them consciously so they do not undermine you. The receptivity is also making you more susceptible to toxic people and negative influences. This month, practice intuition hygiene and make space for the essential. Learn to filter out the messages you receive so that it doesn’t sap all of your vitality. Choose wisely what you want to let in. There is a fine balance between receptivity and absorption, between using your intuition for creative purposes versus swimming in the quagmire. Being inspired doesn’t have to be a burden; you can be creative and have boundaries: revise them. Spend time attending to the leaks and protect your mind from unwanted signals and pay attention as to where you are investing your time and energy.

LEO/LEO RISING ♌︎

The Full Moon in Virgo on March 12 will highlight your spending habits and how you have managed your assets so far this year. Pleasure and indulgence are a marvellous thing and life wouldn’t be the same without the ability to spoil ourselves. However, you are on creative duty and you must stay focused on the task at hand. Make sure you do not celebrate your victory prematurely. You need to find the discipline to see a project to the end before opening the champagne bottle. There might also be some confusion in regards to shared assets or a debt and that will need to be dealt with. Clear out the fog in the first part of the month, if possible. Budgeting and organising your expenses will definitely pay off so make time to do it. In the second part of the month your attention could turn towards learning and expanding your horizon. You might have opportunities to step out of your comfort zone and into the unknown. This could come through a relationship and literally be opening a whole new space for you to explore. You could also be craving more freedom and this is closely linked to your ability to generate creative ideas. You might need more space in order to create more or it might be that you need to step out of your routine to find some inspiration. Gathering the right amount of  discipline to attend to your responsibilities while also fulfilling your need for something different will be a work in progress this month.

VIRGO/VIRGO RISING ♍︎

There was an important New Moon and Solar eclipse in Pisces at the end of February. This eclipse was the last one in a series on the Virgo/Pisces axis that started 18 months ago. You can probably feel that a long process that’s been happening for a year and a half is finally coming to an end. It is very likely that you are starting to see the seeds that were planted in new soil taking root. Something completely new is sprouting on the horizon. On March 12, the Full Moon will be in your sign and will illuminate the path ahead and perhaps some potential road-blocks that could arise. Important decisions will need to be made if you want to give shape to an idea or a project. Dreams and reality will need to be mixed in equal parts. You are endowed with both pragmatism and imagination right now so I would definitely take advantage of this time period to materialize an ambitious idea. However, you have to be ready to put in hours required and work hard to get where you want to be. Whether you are getting the support you need from your associations depends greatly on you; ask for help if you feel overwhelmed by your to-do list. Seek the allies that can help you move ahead with your vision.

LIBRA/LIBRA RISING ♎︎

A process of redefining what love and beauty means to you will soon to be underway. Your relationship to Venus is about to undergo a transformation and there are a few things you can do to prepare. First of all, assess the relationship terrain you are walking on: is it solid? If you were given permission to re-design how you experience love and beauty in your life, what would be the first thing to go? What would be the first thing to stay? What do your relationships say about your self-worth? What does beauty mean to you? Is your self-worth connected to your image in any ways? Start sorting out the assumptions you have carried about what love means to you and see if something is ready to be let go. Be aware of any degrading or damaging ideas that keep you stuck in old and out dated patterns. I would suggest that you assess the type of people you surround yourself with and what that says about you. What are you compromising to keep the peace in some of your relationships? Is it worth it? What sacrifice are you absolutely not willing to make anymore and are you ready to let it go? Your scales will oscillate between commitment and independence in the next few months – be ready.

SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING ♏︎

In light of recent events you could spend the next several months shedding old misconceptions you have about partnerships. You are being fully supported even though it might feel like a difficult process. It’s pretty simple: the more you resist the flow, the more you will swim against the current. There could be a bit of confusion around a romantic or professional situation and it could be difficult for you to think clearly about it especially in the first part of the month. Everything comes at a cost, whether you are willing to pay the price or not is another story and you will have to think hard about that. A new awareness is emerging in your life and your priorities are slowly shifting. What used to be important might not be as relevant now but old habits die hard. It might take a while before you are able to fully implement some new elements into your routine. There are a lot of transitional dynamics for everyone at the moment. One way you can ensure your success through this period is by staying flexible. Keep your goal in mind while being receptive to the opportunities that present themselves. Nothing is written in stone  and you can definitely work this to your advantage.

SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING ♐︎

Until very recently, you had the patience and the time to dedicate to your various collaborations and partnerships. However, you are arriving at the end of your rope in regards to how much you are willing to endure. There are many good things coming out of your associations these days but you are itching to have more freedom to say and do as you please. You can do this in a diplomatic way without ruffling any feathers but you will need all the honey you can find. You also know that you can’t totally walk away from your partnerships because they are bringing you a lot of benefits and you don’t want to lose them. The big riddle on the horizon for you has to do with finding a way to work with others that doesn’t make you feel stifled. A process of revision is beginning and a lot of it will have to do with your various commitments. Sorting out which ones are still benefiting you and which ones have to go may take some time, but it has to happen. The dissatisfaction you feel could be coming from the fact that you are compromising too much. You might have been eager to take on the work load a year ago but you are starting to realize how limiting this is for your well-being. Start thinking about ways you could lighten your load by delegating some of your responsibilities. You might not get instant results but getting the ball rolling is a good start.

CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING ♑︎

Your boundaries are currently being redefined to include a broader territory. What you thought was set in stone might not be after all and you are being taken out of your comfort zone. Of course the new discoveries you are making were initiated by you but they are now taking a life of their own and you must learn to improvise around them. You might also have to contend with limitations that were impose on you by someone else. The easiest route would be to go along with what is presented to you at this time but that option might not sit well with you. There is just the right amount of tension in your life right now to allow rapid transformations. You can use your current situation as a stepping stone but you must remain flexible creatively. You need the right amount of effort and faith in this unfolding process for you to reach your desired goals. Knowing exactly where to cast and having the right amount of patience is what gets you the fish. However, if you reel in too quickly after you catch it, the line can easily break due to the vitality and strength of the fish. You must tire him out first and that takes a lot of patience. Be alert and ready to seise the opportunities at this time but be willing also to wait until the perfect occasion presents itself.

AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING ♒︎

Most of the opportunities presented to you at this time are coming from your networking abilities. This is definitely a period of expansion and you are broadening your scope of influence through your associations. Now that the pieces are in place, the section of the puzzle you will have to resolve is linked to your resources. You have many excellent ideas and you need to convince the world to support them. It won’t be enough to rely solely on your assets and you might need to start looking for funding options available. There could be some new opportunities coming your way that could increase your income so keep yourself available. Time management will be another big thing to keep in mind if you want to get everything done within the deadlines. If you can let go of minor distractions and focus on the work at hand you should be able to accomplish a lot this month. Keep your energy for what is essential and do not squander your precious resources on a project or idea you know won’t yield much. Focus on what’s essential and what you absolutely need to deal with, the rest will fall into place especially of you learn to delegate a bit more: find your allies.

HEART OF MATTER

FEBRUARY HOROSCOPES

Men will believe what they see. Let them see.”
― Henry David Thoreau

 

AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING ♒︎

We are now officially in the middle of winter in the Northern Hemisphere and this time of the year is your time. This means that you will probably be busier than usual with your many projects and most likely in high demand. Your forward thinking and unique abilities are being broadcast to the four corners and you can expect at least some form of recognition for your talents. Opportunities should be taken: people are curious t0 hear your perspective. The Full Moon on February 10 will steal the spotlight away from you for a moment and shine its light on your collaborations and partnerships. You might be embarking on some new types of projects that involve other people in some ways. Expansion and growth are indicated for you this year but you will have to keep yourself in check. Your wish to take on more projects has to be coupled with temperance and a dose of pragmatism. In the coming months your ability to say no will be as important as your ability to say yes. If you didn’t already write a master plan for 2017, sit down and draft one. Even a rough estimate of what you would like to accomplish this year will help to stay focused on the essential and delineate what it is you want to achieve. Your willingness to stay flexible and take detours while keeping your objective in mind is what will take you there. Sort out your priorities; the coming months promises to be a test in regard to how serious you are about your convictions. Be ready to handle the unexpected while remaining faithful to your vision.

PISCES/PISCES ♓︎

The time has come to start thinking about the next chapter you want to write as you are transitioning towards the end of an era. While you prepare to enter this foreign territory, I want you to consider the shoes you are wearing; are they representative of who you are becoming? Have you thought about the message they are sending or the old titles they carry with them? You might feel like holding on to that really old pair of comfortable shoes even though they have become full of holes and are essentially useless. If I were you I would burn those old shoes which have become awkward and more of a burden than a helpful protection for your feet. Throw out your old titles, you have outgrown them. Of course, this is just a metaphor and it might actually take longer to let go of some of the things you cherish, but these old relics are keeping you from exploring your full potential. You might decide against all odds to hold on just a bit longer-and that is perfectly ok. Things take time. Explore your options but keep in mind that it will most likely never go back to the way it was before. Get used to the idea slowly and have compassion for yourself through this process. Give yourself the patience you so easily give others. It is difficult to know exactly how to proceed but don’t sweat it. The next few months should help by giving you important clues on how to participate actively to what is happening.

ARIES/ARIES RISING ♈︎

There is a LOT of fire in the astrology of 2017. Like, a lot. Since you are a fire sign this will certainly fuel your awesome this year. However, as with anything flammable, some precautions are necessary to avoid setting things ablaze in a fury. First of all, you want to make sure that what you are getting passionate about is worth the cause. The great thing about being a fire sign is that it imbues you with the drive and motivation to move mountains. The down side of so much fire is that it can lead to exhaustion, or at its worst: self-destruction (I’m sure you know what I’m talking about). To avoid the less pleasant side-effect of your hot nature, make sure to invest your energy wisely in the coming months. Do not waste your breath on people or causes that are not worth fighting for. Use your discernment and find constructive outlets to express yourself. You are majorly supported this month by Mars in Aries, and people will listen to you. If you can keep your impulsive nature in check then you will accomplish a lot. Use your fire strategically so that you are not dismissed as a short-tempered Aries. The world needs courageous people that will step over the line. Only you want to make sure that the world also hears and understand why you are stepping over the line. Rebellion is awesome but it is not enough to produce effective change. A strategic rebel has a lot more chance to succeed than an impulsive one.

TAURUS/TAURUS RISING ♉︎

Since the beginning of 2017, your focus has been directed on things happening to other people around you: on affairs which you have almost no control over except the ability to lend a helping hand when necessary. The Full Moon in Leo on the 10th of February will shine its light on you and your home and perhaps illuminate some things that needs to be put in order. You have been so busy that you might have neglected the more private areas of your life. This could include your health, your own personal creative projects, your family, and of course your partner. Make sure you allow yourself the time needed to reconnect, root-down, and rest. February promises to be a busy month socially and you will continue to be pulled in many directions for support and input. There might be something you are not aware of at the moment-something that could surprise you down the road, something hidden in plain view but not yet directly obvious. It could be tension building up in a part of your life that will need addressing later (unless you manage it now), so pay attention to what is happening. Don’t assume that you understand everything about a situation just yet and take in consideration that you might have a blind spot that is keeping you from seeing the whole picture. With that said, it doesn’t have to be worrisome. It could mean getting a second opinion on something or running an idea you have by a colleague at first to see how solid it is. It could also mean just stopping for a moment to reassess your direction and adjust your stance. Whatever it means, see it as a mindset; flexible, ready to deal with whatever arises while still feeling solid in your stance.

GEMINI/GEMINI RISING ♊︎

The word overwhelmed doesn’t even sum up how you’ve been feeling in 2017 so far. Your attention has been like a weathervane, one moment pointing in one direction only to spin 180º in the opposite direction with the slightest wind gust. Rest assured that this is not due to the fact that your head is coming loose but more to the fact that you are juggling with so many balls! Of course you wouldn’t have it any other way and as February progresses, you will start to feel steady with your juggling act and you might even find a short cut or a magic trick to help you out. It also looks like you will continue to be quite busy and you will have plenty of opportunity to broaden your horizons and your scope of influence. The tension you are feeling is mostly due to growing pains and responsibilities, but you can handle it. You are at a point in your life where you have been there before and you have the expertise to back you up. Do not let doubt or other people deter you from that fact. You might feel alienated this month if some people second guess the validity of your knowledge and undermine what you know. You could also find the support you need amongst some of your colleagues so do not dismiss everyone. Be prepared to back up what you know with some facts or evidence and you should  get the acknowledgment you deserve. As you know, nothing is free in this world, and you will still need to pay your due with work and discipline if you want to get the results you are looking for. Allow yourself some down time for your mind to relax but be willing to put in the extra hours if needed.

CANCER/CANCER RISING ♋︎

You are starting to adapt to the new elements that were recently added to your routine. These new patterns of behaviours that were foreign to you only a few months ago are starting to feel more normal. You will have to pay attention not to revert back to some of the old habits that tends to sprout only when you get too comfortable or when you are stressed. Resolutions that were taken at the beginning of 2017 will now start to either take hold or dissolve. If you are not totally aligned with all that you have promised yourself for 2017, is there a way you could be more realistic about what is possible? Are you perhaps taking the long road when you could be taking a short cut? Who said the long way was better anyway? Efficiency is a beautiful thing; get familiar with that word. Contemplate the ways you could use what you have at your disposal to get closer to your goal in a shorter time period. Can what you set out to accomplish be done faster if you team up? Can it be that in order to be more efficient you will need more funds? If so, assess what is possible in that department. Let go of the desire to do everything on your own and ask for help if you need to. Yes, you can get a lot done by yourself but other areas of your life might suffer in the process-mainly your health. It’s ok to give yourself the down time needed to regenerate. Sometimes that is what being efficient is all about; making sure you have enough fuel to keep going.

LEO/LEO RISING ♌︎

This is a big month for you, with a Full Moon and a lunar eclipse in your sign on February 10. ”Ok, sure” you say, ”but what does this mean for me?” Well, first of all you have to understand that a good part of your attention at the moment is directed on your partnerships or onto the things outside of yourself that makes you feel supported. You are deriving your energy and vitality-in part-on the people who are close to you. February will highlight your attachments and what you need to feel content. What is lacking will also become more obvious. The fact that the Full Moon and the lunar eclipse are in your sign is an indication to take stock. The Full Moon represents amongst other things a culmination of that part of your life which is ruled by the ebb and flow of your heart’s desires. This is in some ways the opening act of what will unfold in your life in the next 2 years. There is no reason to resist what wants to be born, just as there is no reason to resist what needs to be let go. Doors open and doors close and if we move with it it becomes easier to seize the opportunities as they present themselves. What needs to happen will happen regardless but you can decide to set yourself in a receptive stance as opposed to a resisting one. The eclipses of the next 2 years are on the Leo/Aquarius axis. Eclipses usually bring some fundamental changes in the way we operate. Sometimes they bring events or opportunities that help us move forward. As I mentioned above, this first lunar eclipse in your sign is like the opening act. It is possible that what is sprouting is still invisible to the naked eye but in a couple years you will look back on this time period as an important transition.

VIRGO/VIRGO ♍︎

Logistical issues could take its toll on you this month so allow yourself plenty of down time. There is no point in letting anxiety run the show. You could feel overwhelmed by matters that are really out of your control for the moment. These things could be connected to shared assets, taxes, or other monies that tie you down in some ways. You could feel limited by your immediate surroundings or there could be extra responsibilities on the home front. The Full Moon on the 10th of February will highlight your need for silence and tranquility. Allow yourself to step away from the hustle and bustle if you need as this will serve to invigorate and revitalize you. Habits that do not serve you well will become obvious this month and this is also an excellent time to maximize on your wellbeing. Mid-month, your attention will shift on your partnerships, shedding a gentle and healing light on them. Anything that needs closure will culminate before the end of the month. The New Moon in Pisces on February 26 brings with her a new level of awareness in regards to your relationships and the people who are dear to your heart. You are now engaging with your partners in a subtle but different way and you might discover some characteristics in yourself which had remained hidden until now. This New Moon in Pisces is also a Solar eclipse in Pisces and marks the last one of a series which started back in March 2015. A process that had begun approximately 2 years ago is now culminating. A new level of consciousness, a new level of self-love, and a new way of relating to the world is ready to flourish.

LIBRA/LIBRA RISING ♎︎

Oh dear Libra, if only you could make up your mind half your torments would vanish! If only you could settle on what you want then things would flow in one direction so easily… or would they? I’m sorry, I actually don’t know the answer to this very complicated riddle but what I know is that the time to take some important decision has come. Or has it? Perhaps this is just a test run and not the actual real time to act yet? Maybe you still need to assess which of the myriad of options available to you is the right one? Maybe you don’t need to make any decisions at all! Maybe it’s better to let things unfold and see what happens? It looks to me like what you want right now is the whole cake and to eat it, too. You want freedom and the perfect partner, ease in motion and challenges, you want to be in business without the responsibilities. You are actively searching for the perfect trick that will allow you to do just that. How can someone desire one thing while also desiring its opposite? This is perhaps one of the greatest mysteries of the scales. One way you can start bringing more focus to your affairs is by drafting what is is you truly value. Imagine you have the powers to bring abundance into your life but only to what truly matters; no cheating. What would you choose? What are the things you cannot live without? What are the things you absolutely cannot tolerate anymore? The next few months will bring some important clues to your attention. You are entering a transitional phase; do not remain passive to avoid making clear cut decisions. One way or another, you won’t be able to keep that cake forever. Let the sorting process begin!

SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING ♏︎

Your inner landscape is undergoing some major transformation at the moment and even though it might not be obvious on the surface, you feel it. Your connection to the unseen is being strengthened by events or circumstances and keeping the dialogue open has some major benefits. What I mean by this is that even though we get to choose what we like and don’t like in our lives, some things are beyond our control. Releasing our grasp helps in assimilating the value of these experiences and supports us in moving forward. Of course, Scorpios are experts in the process of regenerating, but why is that? In part, I think it is because your loyalty to what you hold dear is so deeply ingrained and solid that it makes letting go even more difficult. Someone who can turn around and forget their allegiance easily wouldn’t even notice this process, but for you it is a total transformation – a new skin. Once you move on from something you do not turn back. You become a new person and that is why I think letting go is so difficult. There is an old story coming to an end in your life and you can feel it in your bones. As long as you do not cross that bridge you stay in that old skin; the one full of stories and scars which are dear to your heart. You can stay here forever if you want; on the verge of the abyss, contemplating the familiar void of something that is no more. Take the time you need to contemplate this landscape – this is how you build your strength. However, be aware that the opportunities knocking at your door won’t be there forever.

SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING ♐︎

The year 2017 has been good to you so far. You have felt the momentum of things moving forward in your life even amidst the general uncertainty that floats in the collective. The process of sorting out what is essential to you and what you do not want in your life anymore continues and the image is getting clearer everyday. Shedding old pre-conceived ideas about how things ought to be is not an easy process and sorting out what matters to you has been difficult at times. Being pulled in opposite directions by our dreams versus our responsibilities requires fine adjustments and this balancing act will continue in the coming months. The changes are partially due to a fundamental transformation of your beliefs and how you have perceived the world until now. What was once important to you doesn’t seem essential now. So when our priorities shift our life changes. Even though you might not be able to relate with some of your old opinions and ideas, it’s good to keep in mind that not everyone around you will be able to shift their perspective simultaneously. If you find that you are having difficulties relating to the world, it could be in part due to the dichotomy of your old beliefs vs the new ones. You could be feeling very different internally but your reality might seem ill fitting for a while and in turn this could affect your existing relationships. It’s a good idea to keep that in mind in the coming months while you make the small adjustments needed in your external reality to fit your inner vision.

CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING ♑︎

Your allegiance will be undergoing revision this month as you try to reconcile your private life with your professional one. This is not an easy task and you could feel divided between  obligations on the home front versus career opportunities. You might need to reformulate your plans in order to meet all of your expectations. Elements of your work could be undergoing revision and this is indirectly linked to a change of beliefs on your part or some new role you are stepping into. Your priorities and values are shifting with the changing of tides and your desire to focus on what matters is becoming more important. The Full Moon in Leo on February 10 highlights some issues in regard to joint finances. Unexpected expenses could indicate the need to tighten the reign on your finances in order to accomplish what you set out to do. The opportunities to make money are there but it all depends on how you organize your schedule. Since a lot of pleasure will be derived from spending time at home with your loved ones this month you might not feel like having the extra responsibilities but fortunately your heightened intuition should help you make the proper decisions so that you can benefit from both. The right balance of work and pleasure does exist so do not deny yourself the down time. It’s easy for Capricorn’s to feel under-productive but you must be able to allow yourself a period of grace to adapt to the changing circumstances.

♃ BROAD VISIONS  vs  ZEALOUS AMBITIONS  ♅

HOROSCOPES FOR THE MONTH OF DECEMBER

that-one

Ambition is to be the fastest runner on this planet, to be the first on the South Pole, which is a grotesque perversion of ambition. It’s an ego trip, and I’m not on an ego trip. I don’t have ambitions – I have a vision.
– Werner Herzog

SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING ♐︎

The month of December will see you make giant leaps forward. This time of the year is your time – support is here if you need it. There is still a lot of work needed to bring your projects to fruition but like they say, it’s the journey that counts not the destination, right? Monopolize your allies and find the support you need to continue on the path you are on. Take it a step further and get out of your comfort zone.  You will be amazed by the rapid evolution that happens when you do. One of the most important things to remember on your journey is finding the balance between the work you are doing and what you are trying to achieve. Keeping your vision in your mind’s eyes will help you tackle the more difficult day-to-day tasks. Perspective will also remind you of your bigger objectives. By keeping that goal in mind you are fuelling and energizing yourself. It might be hard to see the results of all your hard work at the moment but by this time next year you will look back and realize how much you have accomplished. If you don’t have a specific goal or vision in mind, now would be an excellent time to sketch one. What would you like to see more of in your life? What contribution can you bring to the bigger community?  What is your special skill and how are you using it? What type of wild ideas do you entertain and is there a way to bring some of them to reality?  What would be the first step? Your ruler Jupiter is in Libra (the sign most often associated with partnership) for almost a year.  This means that all of these ideas and projects will be a lot easier to tackle if you team up. Don’t be surprised if you crave more connections. Find your people, find your partners and don’t hesitate to reach out to others and include them in your plans.

CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING ♑︎

December greets you with one door open on the past and one door open on the future.  One foot is still in your past and you haven’t quite taken that big step into the future. It would be wise to take in what you see before stepping into the future with both feet. A moment of contemplation will allow you to see the numerous possible outcomes, the roads ahead, and potential curves. Map and assess the terrain stability so that you can use the resources available to you in the best and most efficient ways possible. A revision of the plans you have for the year ahead will strengthen them and show you where things need to be solidified or let go. Once January arrives you will be ready to fully embrace the New Year. Until then, sort out what you don’t want to carry with you into the future door. Leave behind all of your old assumptions about what you think is possible. Dust off the dreams and visions you hold dear in your heart and make space for them again and again against the stale and the dead. One of the best ways to access this space is by having a good heart-to-heart conversation with yourself. Be honest about what scares you. Look at these fears straight in the eye and ask them what they want from you. Once you get their messages you will be well on your way. Using  fear to our advantage is probably one of the best ways to succeed. There is so much power behind fear; imagine turning them upside down, walking through them and harnessing all that power to fuel your dreams. Imagine that once you finally face them, they hold no more power over you. No. More. Power. Over. You. So, what are you afraid of? 😉

AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING ♒︎

The month of December highlights two areas of your life:  The first one has to do with tying up loose-ends before January begins and the second one has to do with relationships and how you approach them. Having the company of others has been on your mind in the recent months but for the most part it has felt like something elusive. Your desire for partnership is there, but the feedback you are getting seems to get muffled along the way. You are only receiving bits and pieces of vital information and the whole thing may have felt like a complicated puzzle not worth your time and effort. Whether this has to do with work partnerships, friendships, or love interests, it seems to be way too daunting. You are more than able to take care of yourself and  you don’t have the time to dwell on other people’s drama, right? Here is the thing: you can’t pick and choose which part of others you will include in your life and which ones you will ignore.  People come whole with all of their weird quirks and hang ups. When you decide to step into that special space we call ”relationships” you have to be willing to see others for what they are and not just what you had hoped they would be. It also means being able to acknowledge our behaviour reflected back at us without erecting walls. This is probably one of the most difficult things to do in our individualistic society. If we don’t like the way someone challenges our ideas we can dispose of them and go about our merry way. The challenge is not met but avoided and eventually forgotten until it shows up again somewhere else in our life.  Lucky for you, scenarios that keep repeating themselves seem to be a trend within your relationships. You have plenty of opportunities to practice tearing down walls that separates you from authentic connections. As the saying goes: practice makes perfect.

PISCES/PISCES RISING ♓︎

2016 was a spectacular year for Pisceans.  It brought tidal waves of changes that might have felt uprooting and difficult at times. Some events are just outside of our control and all we can do is bend like bamboo. December could bring a dose of nostalgia as you contemplate the year coming to an end. You could get the strange desire to get lost in timeless prose while hard reality knocks at your door – the sweetness of your ideals colliding against the wall of responsibilities. But you chose this path and you are determined to challenge those ideals and their familiar stories. If there is one sign of the Zodiac that strives on instability it is the people of your sign. Pisceans are amazing at transforming a situation into a learning experience. You have vision and ambition available to you at this time so I wouldn’t get lost looking back for too long. This is an extremely fertile period to cultivate new ideas and to apply them into reality. People need your wisdom and insights more than ever so roll up your sleeves and put your hands on the plow. The unique intelligence you carry inside of your heart is needed more than ever to help others see what matters. In this process of applying and sharing your knowledge you can help others restore their own vision. It is very important at this time that you do not lose sight of what you believe in. You carry a torch that illuminates the path not only for yourself but for others. It might feel like a big responsibility or burden but trust me: you do this effortlessly. You do not have to think elaborately on the hows and the why’s, you just have to believe in the wisdom of what your heart already knows and the rest will shape itself.

ARIES/ARIES RISING ♈︎

The opportunity to take some calculated risk is available to you at the moment. You have to find the sweet spot between foolhardiness and your entrepreneurial spirit; the line between profit and loss. You and I both know that you have the motivation – that is NOT what you lack. But directing that motivation towards a specific goal is harder and you need to find which vehicle will carry you the furthest. The beginning of December highlights a journey: whether physical, mental, or spiritual. In the last year, stepping outside of your comfort zone has proven to be rewarding and you need to continue with that momentum. Find the people that will help you expand your scope of opportunities; put yourself out there. Your attention is on career and finances and there could be some possibility for partnerships but you have to be willing to create the space for it. Write down what you are good at and then write down what you lack.  From there you can start looking for the people who are good at what you lack.  Study how they do it, imitate their techniques or even better reach out for advice. I know that might be asking A LOT out of you Aries but it is for your own benefit in the long run! Find the quality you like in the people you admire; what do they have that you are lacking and how can YOU get  better at doing what they do? Last but not least, which defeatist attitude are you ready to leave behind before entering the new year?  What negative scenarios are you playing in your head that could be detrimental to your success? Revise the narratives and beliefs you tell yourself when it comes to your work and how you might be selling yourself short. Is there a skill you feel you are lacking in order to advance in your chosen field?  Consider the learning options available to you.  You might be surprised at the possibilities.

TAURUS/TAURUS RISING ♉︎

Winter is fast approaching and with the cold your gaze turns towards the horizon. Your attention will be on logistics and work this month and perhaps planning a vacation or travel somewhere. You might be craving a different experience and this could also be connected to your work in some ways. Combining duty and pleasure is your motto since responsibilities abound, but you can also make the process pleasurable. The Full Moon in Gemini on December 13th sheds light on your finances and what is needed to make it right. You could feel the burden of expenses growing but a good brainstorming session will show you that you have a lot of assets and skills that could be put to good use. Don’t exclude options connected to teaching or mentoring. You might also have to tighten the reins in some areas in order to reach your bigger goals. Sorting out the essential from the superfluous will prove to be a valuable exercise and will help you delineate a good plan of action. When the desire to indulge in something that you don’t really need surfaces, remind yourself that the essential is invisible to the eyes. This month, seek out fulfilling experiences and rewarding connections. Go after the feeling instead of the object and separate what you truly seek from the automatic security urges that often run the show. Break one habit that keeps you crystalized in old stale beliefs about money that your spirit has outgrown. Find safety in knowing that true riches are collected within the heart through your connection with others. In the end we remember moments not things. Beauty, symmetry, and harmony is feeling at ease in the world without needing to constantly clutter the space with objects that reminds us of the essential. Take the revolutionary step of going directly to that vital space. Light a candle, find your prayer and bask in the warmth of the heart’s true wealth.

GEMINI/GEMINI RISING ♊︎

There is a lot happening these days for Gemini people and December will be no exception.  Expect a lot of back and forth between you and others as you are in the process of laying the ground for some important relationships. The foundations are being build as we speak and the agreements that are in the works could have significant implications for your future. It is not the time to back down from the responsibilities and duties of these said partnerships. This is a major learning curve for you as you usually like to have some freedom of movement and you could feel bogged down by the demands made on you. But the rewards will be worth the small compromise being made at this time. If you are not clear from the get go about how you feel, now would be the time to speak out and bring the adjustments needed. You do not want to re-visit these issues once the situation is crystallized. Nip it in the bud; Put a stop to something while it is still in it’s early development if you are not happy with it. If you’re not sure of what I am talking about the days surrounding the Full Moon in Gemini on December 13th should make it clear. Give yourself until the second week of January to revise any arrangements and long term commitments. Write down what you expect to gain from the situation and make sure you are aware of what is expected from you. Allow yourself plenty of time to think things over as there might be a missing piece of information that comes to light later in the month. There is a possibility of unforeseen development that could change the equation, so give yourself plenty of leg room without shunning the work that needs to be done!

CANCER/CANCER RISING ♋︎

Cancer folks are very good at making others feel good about themselves. Unfortunately, what often ends up happening is a dismissal of their own needs and well-being. It is not so much neglect on their part but more that the natural flow of their internal waters pours outward. You cannot stop a river or a spring from flowing in one direction; nature has an imperceptible wisdom contained in her motion. For thousands of years, humans have built diversion damns in order to channel the portion of the flow of a river from its natural course into various canals. Without irrigation, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Irrigation is the method in which a controlled amount of water is supplied to plants at regular intervals for agriculture. It is used to assist in the growing of agricultural crops, maintenance of landscapes, and revegetation of disturbed soils in dry areas and during periods of inadequate rainfall. [1] A similar process is at work in your life and your task in the coming weeks will be to monitor where your waters are going and re-direct its flow where it is most needed. Do not waste your precious energy on projects, people, or situations that will dry out your soil and cause draught in the long run. Pay special attention to any circumstances that deplete your strength and leave you feeling tired or run down. You will get cues this month from your body; don’t dismiss these cues. Allow yourself periods of contemplation and silence. Many things will come to light and with these revelations a period of re-assessment. Until mid-January, you have the opportunity to evaluate your territory and clearly see where your river runs. Is it producing enough energy supply for everything you have growing? Are you sending your water in too many directions? Are you using the right methods of irrigation for what you want to grow? Give yourself plenty of room to adjust to changing circumstances. Don’t fret on what is not working out the way you had planned. If you get discouraged by the resistance of the terrain, see if you can work with the flow and where it wants to go.

LEO/LEO RISING ♌︎

Relationships and the obligations they bring have been high on your priority list and will continue to be well into December. You are ready for the next level and you are willing to step up to the plate and assume your responsibilities. Although, there is still one distant voice that occasionally whispers to you to keep some space for your own projects. With all of your recent connections, you want to keep some freedom to do as you please and not be relying on external factors to dictate what you can and cannot do. It is easier to adjust the foundation of something before the roof goes on and you are settled in. It is way less stressful to rely on yourself and your assets than to borrow from the bank. Of course these are metaphors but you get the picture. The next few years should bring some fundamental changes in the way you operate Leo. There will be a series of eclipses in your sign beginning in February of 2017 and all the way to January 2019. These eclipses will bring stories that are already being woven as we speak. Doors will open and close in some unexpected places. You want to be self-sufficient enough to allow flexibility and options down the road. There are many opportunities for you at the moment and some might require sacrifices. In other words, you are in a growth curve and you have to think about what you are willing to let go of and what you can’t live without. You want to aim far enough ahead and be smart about it. It might seem like a lot of contradictory desires are influencing you.  It might also feel like a strange in-between world and to some extent it is. You can think of this period as a transitional space. You want to be able to walk that fine line between risk and safety; between the familiar and the unknown: between being responsible but keeping your fire and spirit alive. For the time being, the Full Moon in Gemini on December 13 will shine bright on all the creative projects you want to carry out within your community and the people you need to associate with in other to birth these ideas into reality.

VIRGO/VIRGO RISING ♍︎

The month of December begins with your attention turning towards your home and family of origin. You could be called to reset your stance and this might require some planning on your part to find the sweet spot between compromise and comfort. You will need to adjust to other people and you could find yourself feeling restricted or limited in some ways. The Full Moon in Gemini on December 13 highlights your professional life and the need to separate the wheat from the chaff. Your base of operation and career are closely linked and this will become more apparent as the month progresses. You will likely need to make some mature decisions. This last year has been a tremendous period of expansion for Virgos and you don’t want to stop that momentum. However, expect to review the plans that were made in the spring in order to make the most of December onward. Your ruler, Mercury, stations retrograde on the 19 of December in the sign of Capricorn. A Mercury retrograde is really not the end of the world, but it’s always a good idea to review and reorganize what we have been working on before laying on the next structures.  This retrograde is closely linked to your creativity/creative projects so it’s a good idea to tweak any of the big ventures and ideas you have been working on. Mercury goes direct on the 8 of January and you should feel confident by then with the adjustments and reforms. Slow, steady, and deliberate expansion remains your motto. There is still lots of room for awesome and innovative (financial) risks but you want to cover all of the bases. Then, you can take those wild ideas of yours and bring home the bacon – literally or figuratively.

LIBRA/LIBRA RISING ♎︎

I was once called out for playing ‘the offended Libra’ which at the time I didn’t really understand. One thing we are good at is sensing when a situation is unjust or out of balance; call it the perks of being born under the scales. It is honestly pretty common for Libras to get ‘offended’ when we witness something unacceptable or unfair. We are after all the moral regulators of the zodiac and it is not voluntary as much as it is our innate programming. However, there is one thing, one trapping, one less fortunate side-effect of being a Libran that stops us from going more actively after what we believe, and that is: other people. The amount of space we give lovers, partners, friends, and even strangers is usually the one thing in our life that is out of balance. We are sometimes so agreeable that we end up places we don’t really like and wonder how we got there. This month you have the opportunity to break free from some of the usual roles you end up playing and embrace a fresh perspective. Wherever this is happening in your life, try to hold on to your new found vision. Angst can be super liberating if you apply it productively and carry out real long-lasting changes. Knowing when and where to strike is the trick and I have a feeling this will become more obvious for you towards the end of December. The second thread running through this month is linked to your obligations towards family members and the home front.  Be ready to deal with some unforeseen obligations. You might be craving a distant escapade somewhere far away from all of the holiday noise but you have some important familial commitments to attend. All of your intellect is conspiring for you to break free from restrictive patterns and bring much-needed changes to a stale situation. Nevertheless, you might have to bite the bullet for just a bit longer before you can spread your wings. Until then, clarify and refine the images and sensations of what your future looks like and break the mould.

SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING ♏︎

The beginning of December highlights your finances and the need to tighten the reins to insure you are spending your assets wisely. This is a theme that begun last month and will continue throughout December. The Full Moon in Gemini on December 13 could show you where the leaks are. There could be a lot of commotion on the home front as your need to innovate and break free of old habits is fully activated and you don’t want to settle for the same old stories. With that said, you don’t want to wait until the only option is total destruction either. Scorpio is a Fixed sign, this means you were born in the middle of a season (in your case, the Fall) and it can be extremely difficult to change habits. Being a Fixed sign means you are usually committed for the long haul.  You are reliable, dependable, and trustworthy. On the flip side, being born under a Fixed sign also means you tend to stay in situations way passed their expiry dates. Some patterns get crystallized and trap you in a small prison that you confuse for comfort. The safety of those solidified habits allows you to keep your powers but in the long run depletes you of your vitality. This month, watch where you might be holding on too tightly. Once you find the places in your life, in your body or in your mind where your tight grip is impeding the flow of circulation, see if you can loosen up your hold. Practice stepping outside of just one of your usual habits. You do have tremendous powers of adaptation, only it has to be on your own term. See if you can anticipate where in your life you will need to adapt in the coming years and practice opening up that space. Get out of your comfort zone by small increments and find more flexibility within yourself for the new stories that want to be born. You have the opportunity to practice vulnerability in new and creative ways but it won’t happen on its own. You can stay where you are, frozen in time, holding on to your powers, but understand that the status quo also contains its risks. Prioritize a healthy circulation by breathing in new air and breathing out the stale and create space for positive changes to happen in your life.

ARIES/ARIES RISING ♈︎

You have a lot of work on your plate this week and you could be overwhelmed by the many demands made on you at this time. But that’s ok because you are fueled by the power of awesome. You won’t get overwhelmed if you manage your time efficiently and focus on one thing at a time. Saturn going direct for you means you are climbing onto the next level in your learning journey. You are gaining in authority but with your new found prestige also comes more responsibilities!

TAURUS/TAURUS RISING ♉︎

Pay attention to what is happening on the home front this week. It is within your own sanctuary that you will find the most pleasures. Inspiration could come from unlikely sources hidden within the daily chores. There has never been a more apt time to tend to your routine like you tend to a fire. This is where you will find your creative footing; between contemplation and duty.

GEMINI/GEMINI RISING ♊︎

Much can be accomplished this week if you manage your time correctly. Resist the urge to get lost in what could be and deal with what is. Grounding an idea or a vision takes considerable planning but you have all the tools available to you. Find practical ways to deal with the demands made on you at this time without sacrificing too much of yourself. Know when you might be giving more than you are receiving and adjust your boundaries. You always have the choice to take the reins and direct your energies towards your goals. Don’t get lost in someone else’s problems along the way!

CANCER/CANCER RISING ♋︎

What you do for a living and how you make your money could be on your mind this week. Cancer folks are one of the most creative signs of the zodiac and you probably have many ideas on how you would like to divide your time this fall. How can you maximize your cash flow without sacrificing too much of your juiciness? The solutions to your quandary might come to you over a discussion with someone in the next few days. Playing with the different options available to you will generate some ideas.

LEO/LEO RISING ♌︎

Something that started back around the end of March might require a new level of commitment from you in the coming months. You will start to see what this looks like by the end of this week. You also have the opportunity in the next few days to go over your finances. Budgeting might not seem like your idea of fun at the moment but it might save you some worries down the road. This is a good time to review and assess where you might be paying for unnecessary services. Go over your bank statement and your various expenses and see if you can cut down on superfluous spending.

VIRGO/VIRGO RISING ♍︎

Relationships have been on your mind and you might be a bit confuse about what is and what is not. A lot of things in your life are shifting at the moment and you might feel like you are sailing on a small boat being rocked back and forth by the waves. You are juggling two very different energies. On one hand, you could feel your consciousness expanding and inspired by the new level of awareness you are reaching. On the other hand, the realities and expectations that have to be met could create unecessary anxiety. This week is all about meeting these expectations. Relax your mind, breath and take control of that boat!

LIBRA/LIBRA RISING ♎︎

The social interaction you are craving these days are not as forthcoming as you would hope. Maybe it’s a good time to revise your alliances to see if they are providing you with the level of stimulation that you need. Attention must be put on how you interact with others. On some level what you feel and what you express might be out of sync. A little bit of soul searching this week could clarify who you want to collaborate with, where your tribe is and who or what has passed their expiration date.

SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING ♏︎

Money is on your mind and you have all the connections right now to maximise your assets. You don’t need to work yourself to the ground if you play your cards right. And the right card might be hiding among your network of friends and colleagues. This means you have to take the time to get out, connect and socialize with others. You don’t know what kind of opportunities can be created from joining forces and getting involved in your community.

SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING ♐︎

Saturn goes direct in your sign at the end of the week after being retrograde since March 25th. This can affect you in many ways depending on your natal chart BUT one thing is for sure, you are learning a lot about Saturn aka The Lord of Maturity. This is overall an excellent influence but it can feel like a drag when all you want to do is have fun. Responsibilities, boundaries, aging, the burden of your own ambitions and your sense of authority can all be on the radar. But most likely, you are handling it like a pro. The teacher comes when the student is ready.

CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING ♑︎

Opportunities abound for you to demonstrate your knowledge and skills these days. You have been going through a progressive and deliberate expansion and you are ripe for an upgrade. An idea or a clue could come to you to confirm that you are on the right/wrong path. By the end of the week you will be able to see more clearly where your time should be invested. You are inspired but realistic at the moment so it’s a good time to push forward an idea or project without loosing your footing.

AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING ♒︎

Try to avoid the drama that comes with your collaboration this week. You probably can’t extract yourself from the commitments you have but you can be clear and deliberate when communicating your needs within certain partnerships. What you want and what the other person or group needs from you might be at odds and it will require some work to reach common ground. See this time as a learning process. Collaborating is not always easy but the result could far exceed what you would achieve on your own.

PISCES/PISCES RISING ♓︎

Discrimination is probably your best asset at the moment. Knowing where and how you should be spending your time is half the battle and prioritising is the other half. Ideas abound in Pisces land these days but you probably can’t do it all. You are navigating on busy water so pay attention to where you are heading. A radar is easy to use and a valuable tool for navigation, collision avoidance and steering clear of squally conditions. But most importantly, a radar is essential when sailing on uncharted waters.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK OF AUGUST 8 to AUGUST 14

SOBRIETY, DISCRIMINATION & EXPECTATIONS
Capture d’écran 2016-08-06 à 19.40.03

Who are the happiest people on earth? A craftsman or artist whistling over a job well done. A little child building sand castles. A mother, after a busy day, bathing her baby. A doctor who has finished a difficult and dangerous operation, and saved a human life. Happiness lies in a constructive job well done. Get your happiness out of your work or you will never know what happiness is. -Elbert Hubbard

        ☿

There are a few different ways in which the astrology will reveal itself to us this week. The mind will turn its focus to the practicalities and logistics of our lives. Attention to the necessities and demands of our obligations and the need to face responsibilities head-on will have a sobering effect. This thorough assessment of what we are doing with our time and where we want to invest our efforts is an essential process and doesn’t have to be daunting. There could also be a need to purge and simplify what has become cluttered whether it’s the body, the mind, a physical space or a project. Keep it simple at the risk of loosing your footing.

The hard and the soft collide while we juggle the many projects and never-ending to-do-list. We might be dreaming of a wireless-free space where we can regroup our thoughts, but the buzzing might actually be coming from the multitude of ideas and voices generated within our own mind. This is not a totally negative influence and much can be accomplished if we tame these monkeys into performing their designated routines.

The temptation will be to multi-task but simplifying and finding a structured way to divide our time could help productivity. This is a great week to get things done but there might also be a tendency to saturate the mind. Filtering the essential from the trivial and staying away from fear, guilt and worry will be half the battle. Resist the urge to backtrack into unsuitable scenarios and keep moving forward.

MAJOR  ASTROLOGICAL ASPECTS FOR THIS WEEK

Mercury in Virgo conjoins the North Node of the Moon on August 8th which will amplify Mercury’s qualities for better or for worst. Since Mercury is considered strong in the sign of Virgo this remains a great time to carry out projects connected to writing, editing or any work that requires focus and analysis. Some new information, ideas or methods could come to light and help you move forward. If not well utilised, this period could be marked by anxiety exaggerated expectations and or disenchantment.

The First Quarter Moon on August 10th is in the sign of Scorpio fuelling the will and prompting us into action.  Since both the Sun and the Moon will be in Fixed signs, there could be a tendency for obstinacy and inflexibility.

Saturn goes direct in the early hours of August 13 while in a square from Venus in Virgo. The next few weeks could be characterised by the cementing of relationships and alliances or it could bring the sobering realisations of unsuitable situations or partnerships and their ensuing difficult disintegration.We will start to see the result of our efforts and the dissolution of some cherished misconceptions. Although this retrograde has been a challenging process the changes will bring growth that will require considerable readjustments in the next few months.

Update from the Woods

13329529_10153590873356932_6696448345650180965_o

I am currently cooking in British-Colombia feeding around 30 tree-planters and sleeping in my truck. I have been cooking everyday since mid-April and I should be done at the end of June when Mars turns direct. When I went to bed last night, Mars was high up in the sky glowing a fierce orangey/burnt colour.

In my dream I found myself in a busy station type place with people walking in all directions. I kept walking and ended up in a garden having drinks and decadent desserts with two well dressed upper class women. It was an opulent garden with marble everywhere and it felt like we were high above the world. I could see the blue sky in the distance and the landscape was  filled with orchards and birds. The air was warm and pleasant and there was an overall sense of ease. I asked one of the women where we were and she told me this was her place.

When I woke up I remembered that Venus is closing in on her superior conjunction with the Sun which also means that she will be furthest away from the Earth.

The month of June is here and Venus the planet of ease, pleasure and beauty is far away from us. As we wait ”patiently” for her to shower us with her blessings once again we have to continue with our internal and external work. I am not going to lie, June is a lot of work. There is  much potential and there is much change. Re-invent yourself everyday, stay flexible and ride the wave.

A THRESHOLD

HOROSCOPES FOR THE MONTH OF MARCH

il_570xN.859911122_58ip

“Survival is the ability to swim in strange water.”
― Frank Herbert, Dune

PISCES/PISCES RISING ♓︎

If you haven’t noticed, I decided to switch things around and put you first in the line to receive your monthly forecast. That way you don’t have to spend the extra few seconds scrolling passed all the other signs to get to yours. By being number one (even if it’s just for this month) it also keeps you from having to pass by everyone elses ”problems” and run the risk of getting sucked in. This month is about You. The New Moon/Solar Eclipse on the 8th is in your sign. The Sun will disappear for a moment and re-emerge – signaling the beginning of a new cycle. It will be dark for a moment but it is in the darkness that new life begins. Seeds sprout deep in the soil, away from the harsh and drying sunlight.  This is why it is believed that a New Moon is a good time to set intentions. The eclipse will bring with her some revelations or perhaps a shift that could have some important impact in your life in the next year. It’s also good time to consider where in your life you might have ”eclipsed” yourself and your needs and how you could find some equilibrium. The next 6 months will reveal a lot about partnership and the people you share your light with. There is a shift that is happening now and a story that will unfold and culminate in September. This time could be very energizing and confusing all at once. Focusing on a few important projects instead of spreading your sight in all directions will help you stay on course.

ARIES/ARIES RISING ♈︎ 

Don’t forget the momentum that you’ve felt around the Virgo Full Moon of February 22nd. Hold on to the vision of future victories in your mind’s eye. You will need a distant light house to get you through the waters of March. You might momentarily forget your crystal clear intentions as ghosts from you past resurfaces to test the dedication you have in moving forward. The Sun will find its heat again in the fires of Aries on the 20th of March. Until then, you are walking on the old battlefield. Mingle with the spirits who resides here. Get to know who, or what, they are so that you can release them. The more you resist the encounters, the more they will have a hold on you. You might as well get it over with. Old heart breaks, failures and self-defeating habits will try to get a hold of you. Acknowledge them for what they are and then let them go. The New Moon/Solar Eclipse on the 8th is a perfect time to set your intentions around releasing. Bury the dead and realign the helm of your ship.  Be aware of any lingering delusions around dead-end scenarios. But this month is not all about your ghost stories. The Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse on the 23rd highlights your partnerships and a possible culmination of a recent team effort. You will find a second wind for your work and projects as the Aries season officially begins.

TAURUS/TAURUS RISING ♉︎

Your talents have gotten you a lot of praise recently and it’s not over. Expect a month filled with inspiring connections and inspiring people. The New Moon/Solar Eclipse on the 8th is a good time to set intentions around sharing your bliss and what you love doing. It could also be about bringing more inspirational people in your life so that you can exchange knowledge and ideas. Collaborating on something bigger could prove to be a lot of fun. Step outside of your immediate concern to participate in a collective experience.  In other words go out! A movie, a play or a concert could give you the prefect dose of soul-soothing medicine.  Taureans usually like to have their boundaries delineated but you will have to put your walls down a bit this month. If you don’t do it voluntarily, it will happen anyway and it could be the type of boundary crossing that makes you feel invaded. There could be issues around a collective space that you have to share with others and a need to re-evaluate the situation. Communications should be handled delicately all month. Some people could be extra sensitive or on the defensive. Pay attention to what surfaces in your conversation and adjust your message in accordance. Earth signs like you can be anchors for the more emotionally fragile folks. Practice staying grounded and receptive.  Flexibility will be your best ally all month.

GEMINI/GEMINI RISING ♊︎

If I had a magical formula that would help you resolve the conflicting dualities you are experiencing, I would give it to you. Unfortunately it doesn’t work like that and you have to find your own answers. Perhaps it is also that deep down you love contradictions because they keep you on your toes? Either way you have done your fair share of weight lifting in the recent months and I am wondering if you noticed your muscles getting bigger? With all the questions you have asked yourself, you should really start to know exactly what it is that you want. You are also very aware of what is lacking or what you can’t have at the moment and that might be why it’s challenging.  Instead of focusing on the missing elements, maybe this month you can take stock of your blessings?  The New Moon/Solar Eclipse on the 8th is connecting you to your career or your social/public standing. You can bring significant changes that will have long-lasting effects but you have to discriminate between your fantasies and what is possible. Cultivating awareness of your inherent dualities and the narrative you tell yourself will help sort out your priorities. The greatest opportunities are found in adversity. Focus on your talents and all the tools that you have in your arsenal. Reality is stranger than fiction and you will be amazed at what you can set in motion with a little elbow grease.

CANCER/CANCER RISING ♋︎

The month begins with the distant calls of sirens, luring you towards nebulous territories. Since you are a natural dreamer with a rich fantasy life, this might not seem out of the ordinary.  I would still take advantage of the first half of the month to renew with your love of dreaming. Connect with your muse.  Let her guide you to the hidden treasures that your imagination holds.  I would suggest that you keep a pen and paper handy so that you can write down the incoming waves of inspiration. Exploring uncharted territory will not suffice.  You will need to translate your experiences. And that might be the difficult part. You might be tempted to bask in the glory of the indefinable emotions you experience and surrender to the immensities. However you will need to retrieve the treasures you find and bring them back. Connect to what you know in your heart to be true and take the first step towards aligning with that truth. Even if it is just a baby step. Find the proper vehicle for your revelations. If you had to give a physical shape to your dreams, what shape would you give to them? What material do you have available to you right now that would help you? Work with what you have. Expect the pace of things to pick up around the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse on the 23rd. There may be a culmination of a recent project you’ve been working on. You could receive some praise for your contribution in your career. It looks like the end of the month will be very busy for you.

LEO/LEO RISING ♌︎

Recently, you have let all sorts of old insecurities take center stage in your mind.  They crawled up, uninvited and made themselves comfortable, pretending that this is their rightful place.  Your imagined downfalls, your flaws and fears have nagged you; starved for attention. What you might not have realised is that they are mere shadows and that your apparent loss of power is but a trick of the light. Don’t be fooled! You have already conquered them all. These ghosts are testing your resilience. They are not making you weaker, they are making you stronger by reminding you how far you have come.  They are directly connecting you to your power and helping you surpass yourself.  The New Moon/Solar Eclipse on the 8th is asking you to exorcise remnants of these old narratives you might still be telling yourself.  Be very clear about who you are and what you are made of. Let them know that there is no space in your life for anything but solid goodness.  The Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse on the 23rd brings the completion of a process that started about 2 years ago. You can close that chapter and expect a new one to begin soon. Be flexible about what is possible. This month, you are crossing a bridge and it’s up to you to visualise what is on the other side. Be ready to move forward with your head high and an open heart. Be ready to reclaim your rightful place.

VIRGO/VIRGO RISING ♍︎

The New Moon/Solar Eclipse on the 8th is connecting you to your partnerships, what you are getting from them and what you wish you were getting from them. Discriminate between realistic expectations and fantasy. Are your expectations too high and are you constantly disappointed by what others deliver?  Or is it that you expect too little and you undervalue yourself and your needs? It could also be a little bit of both. Plant your seeds. What is your vision of a healthy relationship? The give and take dynamic between 2 people doesn’t mean sacrificing your integrity. There is a certain amount of pressure right now to get to know your own needs. There is an emphasis on bringing health and vitality to you first. You are learning to delineate your boundaries and are experimenting between give and take. You need to find the perfect dosage and write down your recipe. This process might take some time but you already have a pretty good idea of the ingredients you need. One of the essential ingredients of course is: communication. We cannot expect others to telepathically anticipate our needs. We have to be able to articulate them.  Often that is the tricky part. Misunderstanding happens when we tell a story in our heads and then assume that the other person heard us. We even react to others with the assumption that they know exactly where we are coming from. Good relationships don’t get built on assumption. Observe your interaction with others and see how your messages are received;  I bet you this experiment will be a very enlightening.

LIBRA/LIBRA RISING ♎︎

The New Moon/Solar eclipse on the 8th is a great opportunity to bring back some well needed attention to your physical and mental well-being. You don’t need to go completely overboard with this.  In fact, just a small barely noticeable adjustment to your routine could bring huge results down the road. One of my good friend was recently telling me about the  concept of Kaizen which is the japanese word for ”improvement” or ”change for better”. One of the most notable features of kaizen is that big results come from many small changes accumulated over time.(1) The emphasis is on the process and not the result.  If you had to make one small adjustment to your routine to feel more vibrant, what would it be? What small step would you be willing to take to bring more vitality and health to your body? It could be as simple as taking 5 minutes a day to focus on your breath. Making ambitious resolution is very noble but it can also be discouraging when life gets in the way.  The beauty of Kaizen is that power lies in the minor adjustments.  Since it doesn’t disturb your daily flow, the changes are barely noticeable. Overtime those small changes become more and more noticeable. In other news, the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse on the 23rd is in Libra.  It could signal the culmination of a relationship or a process that started about 2 years ago. A New chapter is about to begin.

SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING ♏︎

Until the end of June one of your primary focuses will be on gathering the resources you need for your master plan.  If you don’t have a master plan (which would be really surprising because you’re a Scorpio) I would suggest you formulate one. Dream big but remain fully aware of the work and the assets you will need to realise your goals. Keep in mind that you will likely need to step outside of your comfort zone to get there. The New Moon/Solar Eclipse on the 8th could be carrying with her old memories. You might have to take resolutions about something from your past that keep showing up but that belong to another time in your life. There will be ample opportunities this month to heal old standing issues. But don’t get stuck in the hurt trying to cover it up with a stoic demeanor. Find the medicine or in some case: poison that you need and take it. The important part is that you move through the month with a complete awareness of why you do what you do. The Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse on the 23rd will bring with her some form of completion and the work you have done in the last 2 years to uncover the ways in which you undermine your success will start paying off. You are aware of your darkness and more willing than ever to coexisted with your shadow.  You can finally close an old chapter that has dragged on too long and focus on your master plan.

SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING ♐︎

It looks like you might have the drive and the steam to work hard this month.  You are about to receive a triple dose of will-power to fire up your engines and whatever you are working on will benefit from this dose of vitality. You might feel like re-inventing the wheel but I would guard you against such a foolish enterprise. Be mindful of where you decide to invest your energy because it might come back to bite you later.  Discriminating and prioritising are your new best friends. It’s not that you can’t do it all. But be aware that what begins now will take longer to complete than you think. Discriminate between what is possible and perhaps what needs to stay in the realm of fantasies for now. Knowing where you want to invest your time and energy will keep you from draining your batteries and will help you have the staying powers in whatever project you are working on. You might feel enthusiastic about many ideas but prioritising is essential if you don’t want to get overwhelmed by responsibilities down the road. Save yourself the headache and differentiate between the people who are worth collaborating with and the ones who may not be reliable. This might not sound like much fun but actually this is a period in your life when you can get a lot done and reach new grounds. You have the discipline, the guts and the stamina. That is why it is even more important to be wise about where you invest your time and energy.

CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING ♑︎

With Spring on the way, the urge for renewal is increasing for all us. The trees are ready to release their sweet waters and it is the contrast of cold nights and warm days that trigger the flowing of the sap. Birch sap is commonly used here in the North for it’s diuretic and purifying properties. The sap taste like water but it contains vitamins, proteins, amino acids, sugars and enzymes. It helps the body detoxify toxins accumulated during the winter months, also  eliminating toxins that only the liver can process. The reason I am telling you about the birch is because I think you could learn a lot from this tree right now. You have an abundance of sweet juices accumulated that are ready to be released into the wild/world. If you wait any longer these sweet juices might start fermenting into an intoxicating brew. Now would be prime time to nourish others with your unique properties. I was also thinking that you could probably use a dose of your own medicine at the same time. Before the end of the month, I would suggest you clarify, detoxify and purify your internal and external space. The medicine or ingredient you need to do that is within you. You hold the key to your sense of ease and it has to do with releasing, letting go, surrendering to the natural movement/flow that wants to happen.

AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING ♒︎

You might be blissfully unaware of what is happening around you right now. We could say that you are focus on the task at hand, dealing with the daily grind and doing what needs to be done. It’s not that nothing is happening in your life but I have a feeling that you are one of the most equipped to deal with a crisis at the moment. The world could crumble around you, i think you  would still keep all of your faculties. Your ability to deal with stressful situations was seriously tested in the last few years but now, nothing can surprise you. Your peace comes with a deep understanding that you cannot control everything, and you are fine with that. You know where you stand but it might be the people around you who create some drama this month. Be ready to deal with external fluctuations and temperature changes from scorching heat to freezing cold. I don’t mean this literary of course, but some of the situations that arise this month are not definitive. Use your own discretion on how you want to deal with them but keep an objective stance if you can. Things are not completely as they seem, there will be changes made down the road so there is no need to jump to conclusion.  Be careful about quick fix solutions or something/someone who seems to good to be true: it/they probably is/are. The end of the month brings a flurry of activity, communications and responsibilities. Projects that begins now might take a lot more time than you think.  Keep that in mind before you sign up for anything.

♒︎ THE NEW SOCIAL CONTRACT ♒︎

HOROSCOPES FOR THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY

_2912056_orig

”L’homme est né libre, et partout il est dans les fers.”
”Man is born free and everywhere he is in chains”
-Jean-Jacques Rousseau

ARIES/ARIES RISING ♈︎

Some interesting developments are happening in your career or how you are seen in the world. You now have a pretty clear idea of who is on your side, and who will help you further yourself and your work. The New Moon on the 8th of February connects you to your friends and the groups you mingle with. Doors are opening if you are willing to intertwined your fate with the folks who think like you. You have the skills and the avant-garde visions; you might be asked to take part in a group collective and teach what you know. There is also the possibility of a conflict between your ambitions and your personal life, as the responsibilities start piling up. There could be issues or fears around money and how you make it. That which ties you to others loom large this month; you might also have to face issues of shared resources or finances. In the second half of February, there is an opportunity to find inspiration and renewal through solitude or meditation. The Full Moon on February 22nd illuminates any dependency or addictions you might be struggling with; your focus turns toward healing any long-standing issues. Make your body a priority. Detoxify and rid yourself of any self-defeating behaviour that keep you from feeling whole. Jupiter has your back.

TAURUS/TAURUS RISING ♉︎

Your beliefs have been under incredible transformation. You have been slowly getting rid of assumptions, political views or teachings, that you’ve held on to, as you realise they are not serving you anymore. All of these considerations are giving you fresh perspectives and new philosophies to contemplate; it’s also allowing you to see new possible ways you could put them to good use. We could call this process: ”the creative reform”. The repercussions of your creative reform will be mirrored in all facets of your life. You will start seeing new roads toward places you can’t even begin to imagine. Taureans are known for being stubborn and single-minded, but it couldn’t be further from the truth at the moment. An iconoclast is hiding within you and is starting to make itself known. We are still in the early stages – you might have to stick to conventions for now. The New Moon on February 8th is asking you to integrate your recent ideas and visions to your career and to a larger extent your community. This looks like an excellent month to think about furthering yourself in your chosen path. You might feel like you can take on all the work by yourself, but by the end of the month, you will realise the important role people around you play in your success. Give thanks and acknowledge the support you’ve received in implementing your ideas. The Full Moon on February 22nd will illuminate the way you handle stress and the impact on your body. You might be curious about alternative or innovative trends in the holistic world. It could also be that you feel a need to detoxify and rejuvenate your body. Listen to what comes up.

GEMINI/GEMINI RISING ♊︎

Your obligations and responsibilities towards others is still being felt heavily this month. However, your ruler Mercury, now direct after being retrograde for most of January, allows you to look towards the future. You should really start feeling the ease flowing back into your life mid-month. Your gaze is on the distant horizon and possible new ventures. You could feel a need to break from the beaten path. Your career also needs to be addressed; you might be giving a lot more than what you are getting in return. At this point, you should ask yourself if it’s worth the sacrifices. There could be some stress around money, other people’s assets, and taxes. Make sure to give yourself ample space to decompress at home and consciously release stress and tension. The New Moon, on February the 8th connects you to higher learning, dreams, journeys or distant travels. It is a good time to set in motions long-term ventures that will help you broaden your horizon. Explore new ideas and concepts. You might also be asked to share what you know with a group of people; this could take place over the internet. By the end of the month, you should have a clear idea of where to invest your energy in the coming months. You will also have a clearer sense of where you need to make yourself and your wellbeing a priority.

CANCER/CANCER RISING ♋︎

The contracts, agreements and the work attached to obligations are strongly highlighted this month. Your wishes have been granted and you now have to deliver the goods. Lucky for you, your creative reservoir is bursting at the seams. Some folks might wonder how you do it, but you wont give your secrets away. One thing is certain: you have many tricks up your sleeve that are helping you succeed where so many failed. You could also give thanks to Mars in Scorpio, who is in partly responsible for fueling your engine at the moment. You are walking on a sharp edge that is directly connected to your career. You are also getting a lot of inspiration from the small details of everyday life: rejoice! You don’t get the creative juices flowing by indulging in front of the tv like a beached whale. You get it by rolling up your sleeves and getting your hands dirty; and that is exactly what you have been doing. You could say that the wisdom you have acquired in the bottom of your own darker corners is finally being integrated in healthy ways. If you don’t harness all the stamina in your creative pursuit, you could find your sex drive increased or, at worst you might become edgy and argumentative. If possible, defuse the tension in your personal relationships. Acknowledge your needs and the needs of your partner; and notice that it all originates from the same flame. You are too busy to be fussing over trivial details anyway.

LEO/LEO RISING ♌︎

The New Moon on February the 8th is in your house of partnership. It serves as a kind of reset button. Set your intentions around your relationships and what you expect from them. Let yourself be seen by others and reach out. Unexpected but fated encounters are very likely this month if you step out of your comfort zone. I realize that this might be easier said then done. How can you go about impleting new ways of doing things when you are so busy with the daily grind? Well, it starts with staying open to new encounters: people who could bring a lot of creative freshness, the ones we sometime label weirdos – artist, rebels, inventors or mad-scientist types. The current tensions you are feeling are mainly connected to the struggle between your need for unrestrained explorations and the obligations that are weighing you down. In other words, the battle between two very dissonant urges. By teaming up with others, you will be able to find some novel ideas and new perspectives. The Full Moon on the 22nd of February is in your house of material resources. It could clarify the things that are available to you, and how you can put them to good use. You will understand the sort of initiatives needed on your part to get where you want to be. Get in touch with your core motivations. What is driving you? What do you need? Exorcise your impatience by getting to the roots of your ambitions. Get feedback from others on your role and responsibilities. Then you can choose which road you want to take with a clearer sense of direction.

VIRGO/VIRGO RISING ♍︎

The darkness that has emerged in the last few months should be seen as a creative process. To touch others, one must have the necessary depth and the wisdom. That is, to some extent, the process you have gone through. By digging deep into your core, you have retrieved some pretty powerful stuff; and this process is not over. The romance or playfulness you are craving might not be forthcoming, but you are at the moment, one of the luckiest signs of the zodiac. Everyone has had to work hard to exorcise their demons, some more than others. With Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion in your sign until September, you can definitely count on some positive development in the near future. Here is the thing: Jupiter is currently moving backward through your sign until the second week of May as part of its retrograde cycle. You might not feel the blessings of the great benefactor quite yet, but he is working his magic backstage, and you are too. In astrology, it is widely understood that easy aspects or planets that are deemed beneficial are not always positive. Why is that? Because when things are easy, we usually take it for granted. You have until May, to train in becoming a grateful recipient of all the positive things that are happening, or that will happen to you. Part of your homework for the next few months is to learn to see and use opportunities that might not seem like opportunities, to your advantage. Develop an optimistic gaze; see the good in others; spot the silver lining; become a faithful devotee of chance; trust the outcome. Don’t take the gifts you receive for granted. The Full Moon on February 22nd is in Virgo. Expect some clarity around partnership.

LIBRA/LIBRA RISING ♎︎

Libra, you have hosted some interesting guests into your very private quarters in the past month or so. Their visit has prompt you to clean up all of your blind spots—the ones you can’t see everyday, where dust builds up. Some of the clutter has been family mementos you are holding on to for no reason except a sense of burdensome responsibility. This process felt scary at first but quickly turned into a catharsis. And now you can feel the spaciousness and ease that is slowly permeating through all the aspects of your life. All you had to do was be willing to shine the light in the attic for a moment to see the “monsters” for what they really are: a pile of old insecure rubbish that you have outgrown. There might still be some boxes in your basement that needs sorting, but at least you are aware of it. They say ignorance is bliss but, in your case, knowledge is power. The New Moon on the 8th is a push that can help you innovate in a project you are working on. Be alert for ingenious ideas that seem to pop out of nowhere. Listen to the iconoclast in you, the one who doesn’t want to do things like everyone else. The Full Moon in Virgo on the 22nd will prompt you to find solitude and tranquility. Retire from the world for a moment, maybe finish cleaning up your basement.

SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING ♏︎

The first 2 weeks of February continue to be about clarifying your message. The way others receive what you have to say, the methods you use to communicate and the meaning behind what you are trying to convey was a big part of January. Studying the way others have communicated in the past might help inspire you to reform the way you use language and words. With Mars transiting in your sign for a good part of the year, you could appear a lot more pushy or combative than you really are. You don’t want to start an argument, you just know what you know—you know what you want and you want it now. The New Moon on February 8th prompts you to deal with family matters or your home front, and the material resources available to you. You are craving independence and self-sufficiency: set you intentions and get to work. Expect a tidal wave of inspiration to flow in around mid-month and make sure you capitalize on it. Deal with any fears associated with your powerful creative urges. Find allies that will help you further yourself and your creative projects. You have so many resources available to you at the moment; you just need to be willing to put in the extra hours.

SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING ♐︎

The material resources available to you at the moment seem to be in a state of flux. Your income or the way you make money had to be reviewed or reformed in the last few months. You are now starting to feel the repercussions of these changes. It looks like you have a lot of work on your plate, and a lot of inspiration to get down to business. The New Moon on February 8th is a reset button in regards to the way you communicate. You are now in a place where you could teach what you know, if you don’t already. Another big theme coming up for you is connected to your sense of authority. Have you ever considered passing on your knowledge or mentoring? I think you know enough in your field of expertise to consider the option of taking students or apprentices or to work on your current projects. The Full Moon of February 22nd will highlight a sort of dichotomy between your place in the world and your inner sanctuary. Confusion on the home front is very possible in the second half of the month and you could find solace if you step outside, walk around, and talk to people in your neighbourhood. In the last week of February, there is an opportunity to clarify an issue or misunderstanding around boundaries and personal space. You should feel confident enough to bring up the conversation and find a solution.

CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING ♑︎

As you go about your business this month Capricorn, I want you to contemplate this famous quote from the Greek philosopher Plato: ”The measure of a man is what he does with power.” Such a simple statement but in reality, very hard to put into practice, especially when we are asked to step up in a leadership role. Of course most Capricorn will say it is their natural birth right since they are after all one of the most competent sign of the zodiac. The problem arises when other people start relinquishing their own authority and look to you for answers. What do you do with the heavy responsibilities that are handed down to you by others? How do you handle problems that are not your own? Now would be a good time to reflect on your place in the world and how you go about using your powers. Venus in Capricorn until mid-month will give you a good balance between social grace and getting what you want. The New Moon on February 8th is a fantastic reset in regards to finances. Find new ways of generating revenue, and look for the trend setters that could help you innovate. You have a lot of resources available to you at the moment, capitalize on what you have. The Full Moon on February 22nd highlights your learning journey; take stock and adjust your sails.

AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING ♒︎

Aquarius remains the most misunderstood sign of the zodiac. It is not that you are inaccessible; in fact, you are very much a social creature, but your mind dwells where not many people dare to venture. You are not bound by time in a mundane sense; but time is the thread that leads you to perceive future realities. Your gaze is set on the multiple possibilities that would allow you to reform our social mores and align them with your vision of the future. In a sense, time allows you to experience the future. Society needs people like you to move us forward and help us break free from the stale structures. It is so easy for you to see solutions for the problems that plague modern society that you wonder sometimes why people are still so archaic. The good news is that this is your time of the year. The New Moon on February 8th is in your sign and it is in some ways a new start for you. Forget about the projects that didn’t reach what you had envisioned. The future is now. Saturn, the traditional ruler of Aquarius, will be in Sagittarius until December 2017. This is your cue to reform some of your beliefs and philosophies. If you are still holding on to dated misconceptions about what you want, what you are or what you want to be, now is a great time to let them go. You are ripe for a new vision.

PISCES/PISCES RISING ♓︎

“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” ― William Arthur Ward
My father is a Pisces and a guitar maker or luthier. Growing up I spent many hours in his shop looking around at all the exotic woods and little drawers filled with pieces of bones, shells, tagua nuts and ornamented guitar keys that would later become part of an instrument. He probably kept a watchful eye on me, but I felt like I had free reign to play around and explore. He would let me use his band saw to cut pieces of wood that I would turn into jewelry, giving me tips but also letting me make mistakes. Sometimes he would give me a small job, but it never felt like it an obligation. To this day, there is always an ”aprentice” in his orbit and through the years many young artist have adopted him as a sort of ”spiritual father”. As a Pisces, you hold a key to the mysteries of life that make others want to be close to you. You naturally take people under your wing without questioning their intentions which in turn makes them feel accepted. Your deep understanding of pain and struggle allows you to have compassion for everyone and this is a true blessing. Make sure you do the same for yourself as you come to the end of the yearly cycle and are about to celebrate another trip around the Sun. Have patience with yourself and for your perceived flaws and imperfections. Acknowledge your wounds and give yourself the compassion and acceptance you would give someone else.

☿NECESSITY AND INVENTIONS☿

HOROSCOPES FOR THE MONTH OF JANUARY

800px-spleen_et_ideal

“The two go hand in hand like a dance: chance flirts with necessity, randomness with determinism. To be sure, it is from this interchange that novelty and creativity arise in Nature, thereby yielding unique forms and novel structures.”

― Eric Chaisson, Epic of Evolution: Seven Ages of the Cosmos


ARIES/ARIES RISING ♈︎

In the last few months, Aries, you spent a lot of time over-analysing your situation, yourself and everything that is possibly wrong with you. You might not have been aware of this ongoing internal critic, but I urge you to start the year with a clean slate in the self-esteem department. It’s ok to use a magnifying glass to look at ourselves,,all our little flaws and every little wrinkle, but sometimes you have to take a breather, take a step back and look around at what is going on outside of your immediate periphery. Make a New Year resolution to let go of a bad habit and then get your priorities straight. The urgent matter at the moment and the place where you need some restructuring have to do with your work, your career, and your place in society. The New Moon on January 9th is connecting you to “the boss that lives within”, your inner CEO, the person in charge. You are looking for more autonomy. You want to do your own thing. How bad do you want it? What do you have to let go in order to get more financial autonomy? The Full Moon is in Leo on the 23/24th, and it ILLUMINATES the part of your chart that connects you to your creative center. You want more freedom, more fun and you have a lot of creative juice brewing at your core. January is an excellent month to revise your ambitions, what you have to contribute to the community and the role you want to have in society.

TAURUS/TAURUS RISING ♉︎

January is a solid month and there is a lot on your plate to start the New Year. You have creative power at the moment. If there is someone able to bring ideas into reality this year, it is you. The New Moon in Capricorn on the 9th is happening in the part of your chart that deals with what you believe in, which to some extent has been under revision. How do your spiritual inclinations and what makes you rise above the mundane fit in with your surrounding, your friends or the people you associate with? Are they at odds or do you feel supported? Now would be a good time to take stock since you might be hyper aware of the disparities between your philosophies of life and the community you are a part of. A serious appraisal of the situation is called for. Mercury retrograde in Capricorn for most of the month is an excellent time to revise your overall direction and where you see yourself going in the long term. Your ruler Venus will conjunct Saturn which calls for maturity in all of your dealings and personal relationships. You might be working overtime and feel weighed down by responsibilities but since you are an Earth sign you can totally pull this off and come out strong at the end of the month. With all that work, your partner or loved ones could feel neglected, so make some time for them. The Full Moon on January 23/24th is in Leo and it is in your home sector. Take a breather, have fun and relax.

GEMINI/GEMINI RISING ♊︎

Oh the sobering effects and realisations that come with another year gone by and a new one beginning! This could be an emotionally churning period when you are asked to find the sweet spot in winter Gemini. Your personal relationships have been undergoing a huge transformational shift that has left you somewhat cynical about love but you are also learning to find faith within. The New Moon on January 9th is a heavy-handed one that makes you hyper aware of any structures that no longer sustain you. All work and no play can make Gemini a dull girl/boy. Your ticket to finding luck again has a lot to do with your foundation and your base of operation, your home and where you retreat from the world to charge your batteries. If you are setting New Year resolutions, I would suggest to set them around your home, your inner sanctuary and what that means to you. Where you would like your home to be, what you envision your home to look like or any actual renovations that would update your space and your living quarters. In order to expand and succeed in the world, we need to feel solid within. Your ruler Mercury will be retrograde in Capricorn for most of the month in the part of your chart that deals with other people’s money, taxes and inheritance. Be clear about your role within any partnership and anticipate possible misunderstandings. Double-check any paper work that involves taxes. I don’t want to make a big deal about Mercury retrograde but better to err on the side of caution. It might be a good idea to wait (if you can) till the end of the month to secure a commitment, a financial arrangement or sign a contract.

CANCER/CANCER RISING ♋︎

We are now 6 months away from your birthday, dear soft one. Most of the light you receive around this time of the year is coming from your partnerships, your sweetheart, the ones you love in your life or in your dreams. The New Moon in Capricorn on January 9th is making you aware of how much you need someone to support you and to a bigger extent how much you need others to support your work. How is your partnership helping you to express yourself and what role do other people play in helping you generate ideas? Acknowledge and give thanks to the people that matter to you. To bring luck in your future endeavours, show gratitude to all who have helped you bring your ideas to fruition. If you are not feeling supported, now would be a great time to voice your concerns and revise your partnerships and the roles they play in your life. Sometimes we expect that others will return the favour but not everyone is as caring or attentive as you are. Your generosity might go unnoticed if you don’t kick a fuss about it. You might have to spell it out or carve it in a rock for others to acknowledge or understand what you expect from them. Revise the systems you use for getting what you want and adjust. The Full Moon in Leo on January 23/24th illuminates the resources you have available to you at the moment. Remember what you are made of, what you already know and what you are good at. Remember that you have enough wealth, fortune and power within you to sustain yourself no matter what happens.

LEO/LEO RISING ♌︎

Sometimes it can feel like we are working for very little in return. January might be one of these months for you, Leo. Keeping in mind that all the work you are putting in now will most likely pay off later might be a good idea. Your financial well-being this year is closely related to how much work you are willing to put in right from the start. The New Moon in Capricorn on January 9th is in the part of your chart that deals with your habits and general routine. Set your intentions around health, and support your immune system with plenty of sleep and good food. Your health is your wealth so be willing to invest in it. Now would be an excellent time to weed out any bad habits that are depleting your wallet, your energy or that are not helping you get where you want to go. I am not going to lie to you: everyone will have to put in extra hours in January. You can make money but you will need to be disciplined, serious and committed about your objectives. Long-term investments is your magic formula. Since this is the time of the year when the Sun is at the opposite of where it is on your birthday, you could feel an all-time low. The end of the month will ease off and the Full Moon on January 23/24th is in Leo, which could bring some form of recognition. Soak it in, and bask in the glory. This is your Full Moon. Acknowledge your accomplishments, your creativity, your amazing brain and give thanks to yourself for all the hard work that got you where you are.

VIRGO/VIRGO RISING ♍︎

For you Virgo, the year starts with your ruler Mercury going retrograde in the part of your chart that deals with your creative center, romance, children or any projects that are like ”your babies”. Whatever you are working on at the moment will need to be revised, restructured and solidified in order to get the lasting result you are looking for. Start 2016 with the intention to birth or create a lasting legacy. What are the structures that are currently in place within your projects and what methods are you using to ensure maximum creativity within them? What brings you joy and are you serious about your pleasure? If you are not sure of what that means for you, now would be a great time to define it more clearly. Where do you get your inspiration from? Do you have a muse? If you are single and looking for love, what would an ideal courtship look like? How did you spend your free time before you became an adult? The idea here is for you to connect with your inner child. Make some room for playing and re-invent how you use your imagination. Have faith in your creative abilities and monitor the persistent internal critic that lives within. Your capacity for enjoyment is closely connected to the vision you have of yourself and your self-imposed limitations. It can also be that your ability to have more fun, flirt with life and connect to that child like innocence has the power to transform you. What do you love?

LIBRA/LIBRA RISING ♎︎

On first impressions you might seem to be gentle and agreeable, Libra, but the people closest to you know that under your charming demeanour hides a fierce and powerful will. This somewhat hidden side might become a lot more apparent in 2016. Your initiation into the warrior mindset began last year and you have basically been in training camp since then. You have learned to connect to your own needs while liberating yourself from the demands of the external world. And that is not easy for the sign that is most often associated with diplomatic compromises. The New Moon on January 9th shows that you still have some work to do in regards to communicating what you need to the ones who are dearest to your heart. And to do that, you need to have faith in your intuition as a guiding compass. Trust that only you know what’s best for you. There are a lot of opportunities for you to become a voice of authority in your field. In 2016, your opinion and expertise will be in high demand and you can make money with what you know. But you have to be serious about knowing your worth and knowing what you know. Take this month to revise your internal dialogue, adjust your base of operation. Liberate the skeletons in your closet. Let go of stale beliefs about yourself that you have inherited from your family and early childhood experiences. Find rooting in a new soil, a fresh soil, the soil of your own wisdom.

SCORPIO/SCOPRIO RISING ♏︎

Mars, your ruling planet will be in Scorpio for almost half of 2016. That means that whatever happens, you will be able to tap into your incredible reservoir of strength, resourcefulness and stamina. Not that it is not usually available to you but you can find some comfort knowing that the year begins with a strong footing. Your strength came with a price and in the last three years you have worked really hard to be where you are. Basically, you rock. Now the question is can you apply your endurance in order to make more money this year? How will you apply all the will power that is available to you to birth a cool project that could be financially rewarding too? If you are working on something already, January should be spent tweaking all the details of that project. Prepare yourself for a month that will be spent going back and forth over details in what seems to be a meaningless dance. Keep in mind that your ability to go over things is closely linked to your ability to generate income. Spend time organising your thoughts and find a system that will help you be more productive. There might be an increased number of correspondence, phone calls and trips. There is a momentum building but it is important not to skip any steps. Everything will come in due time. Find your allies, the ones that can help you with your ideas, your paper work or anything you don’t have time to get to. A lot of luck can be generated if you team up with others. Define your plan of attack and put your army in order.

SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING ♐︎

Who is this person in the mirror? Who is this responsible and productive human being? The little centaur is all grown up, how does it feel? Sagittarius, I am so impressed with you and all that you are doing. It is amazing to see the tangible ways in which you go about being the coolest sign of the zodiac. If there is one sign that deserves to have their philosophies broadcast loud and clear, it is you. Everything you stand for is finding a way to becoming a real part of your life and that is awesome. The first half of 2016 will be spent pretty much on the same path as the one you undertook in late 2015. You are working relentlessly at making your dreams come true: keep going. A big part of the work has to do with re-aligning your work and career so that they are in tune with what you believe and what you would like to do in the long term. Spend January calibrating your finances, calculate how much money is coming in and how much money is going out. Be realistic about the workload you want to take on because there are many opportunities regarding your career or how you could be making money. Be selective because the choices you make now will have an impact down the road.

CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING ♑︎

The year starts with your birthday; you are the first in the line because you know how to tackle pretty much anything. You also get the first New Moon of the year on the 9th of January. People put a lot of faith in you and in the way you do things because you know where you are going and you make a great leader. If you end up getting lost along the way, you’re still pretty good at pretending to know where you’re going. So the New Year begins and you are in the lead, where are you going and what are you looking for? This is a great month to revise your ambitions and write your plan for the year. Mercury will retrograde in your sign for most of the month, which means you can take a breather and solidify your foundation before you keep moving ahead. It would also be an excellent time to revise what you believe yourself capable of doing. It is very possible that you are still following a course of action that is not suitable for you anymore but you are still going through with the motion because you feel obligated? You have changed deeply in the last few years and your transformation is not over. How can you take your more “out there” visions and make them fit into your overall scheme. You might actually feel like throwing conventions out the window completely. Would you dare?

AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING ♒︎

The New Year starts with a major internal reform that will mostly take part behind the curtain and in the dark. What does that mean, you ask? Well, you are shape-shifting but your new shape hasn’t really taken up an official form yet. You can start seeing the changes but you haven’t grasped entirely what it means. It is exciting, but it is also nerve-wracking because you are not clear yet on what is emerging. You can sense the major impact your decision will have in the long run but you can also sense the hand of destiny at work and how small you are in the overall picture. You want to do something meaningful, you want to be meaningful and you are willing to work hard to bring your dreams to reality. To connect to your center, I would suggest that you spend January in a semi-quiet and meditative state. If you can retire from the world and into a stilled place for a few weeks, do it. It might end up being the most productive move you will do. Study your visions, listen to what your dreams are saying, smoothen out your new wings. You will also need to clarify your intention in regards to your partnerships: what you need from them and why you need others to be a part of your projects. Because you do. You need to have faith in others to help you complete the puzzle. The successful outcome of your ideas and projects in the first half of 2016 is closely linked to your alliances and collaborations.

PISCES/PISCES RISING ♓︎

Happy New Year, Pisces! There is always a good reason to stay hopeful but wishful thinking alone won’t get the job done this month. January could feel like you lack the support that you need, so revise your alliances. Who is on your team? How are you going about getting the help that you need and is it working? Maybe it’s the way you go about asking for assistance. Are you invoking the right helpers and are you being precise? If you feel like people aren’t there for you, can you find a better way to formulate your desires to get what you want? The way you make a living is closely linked to your friends, your community and your genius. How it all ties in together has a lot to do with finding practical methods of putting it out there. If you can ground your vision, it will be easier for other people to see it. If you can build a bridge between what you imagine your role to be in your community and reality, you can make some pretty cool things happen. Being the most philosophical sign of the zodiac makes it is easy for you to find the silver lining in any situations. But that doesn’t mean you have to put up with difficulties. Others can really benefit from your set of skills, so be serious about the methods you use to promote yourself and what you know. It will be really worth it in the long run.

♐︎ FAITH AND FOLLY ♐︎

HOROSCOPES FOR THE MONTH OF DECEMBER

wild_horses_running_by_lamptey97

ARIES/ARIES RISING ♈︎

Your wish to break free and start anew is increasing by the nanosecond. You are tired of your old stomping ground and you want out. This is old news to you, I know.  You have felt this way for some time. The New Moon on December 11th is connecting you to a broadening of possibilities. It might not necessarily be a trip down to Costa Rica but there is an opportunity to widen your horizon and set your sights on something in the distance. This new chapter could very well be connected to a career opportunity. But you need to take part actively and seriously. This reform will only happen if you formulate a plan  like a boss. There is a push and pull between the old and the new.  You are caught between your roots and your wings, between hiding within yourself in the safety of the known and some far away wonderland. You might be able to take a break from your own rebellion and enjoy some sexy times around Christmas. In the mean time, take care of your health, because  being fired up 24/7 is hard on the immune system.

TAURUS/TAURUS RISING ♉︎

Why is it so complicated when it comes down to sharing? Can’t we just get along? Can’t it just stay simple forever? Can you just do what I ask you to do? Can we forget about the extra hidden costs that come with that privilege? All you really want is your cozy and peaceful corner of the universe. You are not asking for much! Taurus, you like to be  in control because you know what you want.  It’s simple. Confusion arises when you have to give up the stirring weel.  It makes you feel uncomfortable to let someone else guide you. You would rather just do it yourself because you can predict the outcome. But this month, practice surrendering. Why? Because magic happens in the most improbable fashions when we let things unfold. Because beautiful things happen when we learn to open to others in a vulnerable way. This month, you are learning to flex your relating muscles in a whole new way.  You are undergoing a sort of relationship renewal. You are also learning to have faith in others and what they can do for you. Discover new ways of connecting with those who are closest to you. Let them show you what they know. Let them teach you a different way of doing things. Then you can go back to your way of doing things and show the world all the awesome things that you learned in the process.

GEMINI/GEMINI RISING ♊︎

Can you be wild and free within the confines of the house you have built for yourself? Your partnerships are on the verge of becoming a strange ritualised mating dance that you go through with your eyes closed. Would I dare say that perhaps you are bored? Gemini, you are dreaming of something bigger for yourself. Especially when it comes to the people who are close to your heart and the luke-warm affection they have been delivering. You can probably have what you want, but you need  to communicate specifically.  I know it might be difficult to put in words the exhilaration you are searching for, but try it, I dare you. Be serious about your darkest desires and listen to them. You can’t expect your partner to give you what you dont’t ask for. Cultivating faith and trust will help you keep the communication channels opened. In the meantime, some of the excitement you are looking for might come from groups or friends, associations and wider circles. If I have to take a wild guess, I would say that the most fun you will have this month will be in larger settings. Go out and join the party even if that only means offering your after-party driving services.

CANCER/CANCER RISING ♋︎

Your relationships are transforming, reaching a new level and you’re serious about doing the work that it takes to keep them.  That’s a pretty big statement, but it’s true. When I say : you’re serious about doing the work  I mean you know that faith and wishful thinking alone wont do the trick. You are entering a new phase. Keeping the communication channels wide open with your loved ones will help. Checking in. Your internal and external dialogues have to match.  More than ever, what you whisper in your secret chambers has to be in harmony with what you express externally. To do that, you need your inner landscape to be clean, peaceful and energizing. Can you make time on a daily basis to worship at the altar of the most important temple-your body?  Imagine that what you tell yourself is feeding every single particles that makes YOU. What type of words will you murmur in your prayers to find rooting within your body? Having a strong root system will help in dealing with any curve balls or wind gusts that might come at you from your professional life this month. On a side note, the Full Moon on the 25th is in Cancer. Let other people spoil you a little.

LEO/LEO RISING ♌︎

It looks like there is some romantic potential in the air but you are not willing to settle for anybody. You might get some very strong hints but you’re also very busy with your own stuff. You will still need to make some time for your most important relationships. Show your loved ones that you care. Demonstrate what it means to receive your magnificent love and attention.  There is a lot of back and forth communication or negotiation with others this month. If you can finish up on some important project, you might feel like entertaining at your house. That would give you the opportunity to invite someone special along without seeming too demanding. You have been more than dedicated to your work in the last 6 months. Take a break and have some fun, cook supper for friends or have a romantic movie night. Letting out some steam and recharging you battery should be a priority on your agenda. You still have a lot of work on your plate and relaxing might be the way to tap into your creative reservoir. To be at your optimum productive self, you will need to alternate work with pleasure.  It’s a simple equation kick your feet back relax then tackle a difficult task. Take a bath with a glass of bubbly, then you can go out and conquer the world.

VIRGO/VIRGO RISING ♍︎

I hope that you can appreciate the person you are becoming Virgo and not just how far you still want to go. You are being initiated into your own mysteries in a big way. You have been relentless in the search for your own truth. Not the neighbour’s idea of the truth and not the mainstream media’s lukewarm and already chewed-up idea of the truth. Your very own, shiny and already perfect self is learning to have faith in the power of what you know and how you can use what you know. Don’t lose the perspective you have on your own potential right now.  Me and you both know that you get easily caught up in nit-picking over the smallest details. But right now, you are being asked to have faith in your potential to expand and generate luck for yourself.  Don’t lose your momentum over the things you haven’t figured out yet. It will come. A good exercise for you this month would be to examine your beliefs, their origines and how they influence your decisions. My guess is you are carrying some ideas about yourself and how you should act that have been passed down to you. How much of your opinions about the world have been inherited and how much come from your own experience?  Now is a fantastic time to bring a reform to the inherited beliefs you carry and to align them with your own truth.

LIBRA/LIBRA RISING ♎︎

The downside of being a Libra is that you are so damn charming, that sometimes others don’t realise you are making an effort. Things seem to come easily to you but it actually takes a lot of your mental faculty to be lovely 24/7. And right now, you need all of your intellectual powers to be focused on what you are trying to achieve. And that means having to be short and not so charming when you need to. People will give you things (like their secrets) because you are warm and inviting and usually, you will graciously indulge them. The thing is, if you spend all of your time making other people feel good you start neglecting yourself. It’s ok sometimes to tell people what you think.  Staying on the surface with others to keep the peace won’t help you AT ALL right now. Revise the way you communicate with others. What are you saying? Because you need to make sure other people understand where you stand and to do that, you will need to communicate clearly. First, you need to check in with yourself: clarify your intentions. You need to make the decision to prioritize yourself, your needs and what YOU value. Then be sure to communicate it to others.  Find the right balance between being overly assertive or too passive with your statements. But the most important part is that you need to stick with it and don’t let other people make you doubt your own intentions.

SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING ♏︎

Alright Scorpio, thanks to your charming disposition this month you can pretty much sneak into any milieu that you wish to be part of. You could be more convincing when it comes to your sales pitch and powers of persuasions. The stage is set to happen in your neighbourhood or close to home. Use it to your advantage and find alliances that can help you further any projects you are working on. You could be busy with proposal, research ideas or analysing all the incoming data, to convey a particular idea or message. This is to a large extent a theme that began in early Fall. But this month, you might be craving a reform on how you go about doing all of those things on a practical level. You might have to let go of some cherished habits to fulfill all your responsibilities. It could be that your need for efficiency is not compatible with some aspects of your routine. It could also be that your body is asking for different foods or different ways to exercise. You might feel like experimenting with different ways to bring your body to an optimum level.  Make sure you remain objective when choosing any school of thoughts, health trends or gurus that claim to have found the truth.

SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING ♐︎

”With great power comes great responsibilities”  is an expression you should keep in mind in the coming months Sagittarius. There are many opportunities available to you at the moment, especially with regard to how you make a living. All that potential has to be channeled wisely though and that might be the tricky part. Your usual way of going about things might not work so well at the moment. Instead of relying on faith and luck alone, you need to set clear goals. I know I have already told you all of this but I will repeat myself.  Creating a tangible plan for a certain vision you have, and drafting a trajectory will help you in attaining it. The New Moon on December 11 is in your sign so it would be a good time to set some clear intentions. All doesn’t need to be so serious though. Keep your creative channels open because some of your best ideas could come quite unexpectedly. The Winter Solstice on the 21st and the Full Moon on the 25th is linked to your core values shedding light on your own hidden motivations. Some elements might need to be let go to lay down a more solid foundation.

CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING ♑︎

Most of the action in your life at the moment is happening behind closed doors. Those closed doors might not even open for you just yet. You can probably get a glimpse though the cracks but you will need a lot of silence and peace around you to see anything. The Winter Solstice is your time of the year and it might take until mid-month for you to see clearly or to hatch a creative project.  Until the 21st, you can prepare the terrain by shedding, cleansing and sweeping any remaining attitude and beliefs that are blocking your path. It doesn’t need to be strenous. In fact, one of the ways you can create space is closely linked to your ability to let go. There are some elements at works that your rational mind might not be able to grasp fully and that is ok. You are undergoing an initiation in the realm of the unseen and it is better to let go of the desire to explain everything.  The time will come when you can process all the incoming synchronicities and verbalise them more clearly. The Full Moon on December 25th highlights your partnerships and some surprises on the home front.

AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING ♒︎

The recognition you are getting from your peers is coming at a cost. Yes, you have a certain edge in your field that is being acknowledge by your community. People are willing to listen to you and what you know and that can be satisfying. But the other side of the coin, is that it is making you re-question your own assumptions and that type of responsibility could feel heavy. Be mindful of the way you communicate with others because it could be taken the wrong way. Stay diplomatic if possible. You are arriving at a cross-road and you will need to make some decisions regarding things you thought were set in stone. You have invested a lot of your time in the last few years on ideas that might not be paying off like you originally thought. This month will require some discrimination between your beliefs and the beliefs of others. Spend some time processing the events of the last few months.   Nothing needs to happen just yet but the cravings for a personal revolution are in the works. Your values are changing and with that the desire for new experiences is also increasing. If it’s possible find some quiet time around the Winter Solstice on the 21st and the Full Moon on the 25th. Your body will thank you.

PISCES/PISCES RISING ♓︎

Pisces, imagine you are like a battery at the moment receiving an electric charge. On one hand, your inner fantasy/spiritual life is fully activated and rich. On the other hand, you are aware of your responsibilities regarding your career and it doesn’t leave much space for disconnecting. You are dealing with two opposite currents. There is a need to reconcile the magic with the mundane. This can mean many things and it all depends on how you use the ”power” that is available to you. An ultra-fast charge or a strenuous discharging is harmful to the life of a battery. Can you handle being part of society, putting yourself out there, being recognized for your contribution and putting in the extra work hours without loosing your good juju? Can you manage the positive and the negative, the charging and the discharging while staying calibrated? Your genius is being acknowledged and that is a big part of why you are busy. People want your unique perspective and it is creating more work for you. Learning to discriminate the essential from the superfluous will help you create more time for yourself. Realigning with your core beliefs about who you are and who you want to be, will sooth and heal your soul. Pleasure and romance are on the radar this month.  Go out and have fun.
