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.

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.

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.

♆CASTLES IN THE SAND♆

HOROSCOPES FOR THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER

tumblr_lnmtjuOhKz1qfrxeko1_500-1

ARIES/ARIES RISING ♈︎

In some ways, you are still largely dependent on others this month. It seems like no matter how much you need or want your space and freedom you are still relying on other people for some things. The New Moon on November 11 is a reset button in connection with your intimate relationships. Deep bonds are initiated or connections are broken. You need to sort through your feelings and communicate to avoid further conflicts. You can find ease and comfort if you give up a bit of that ‘’independant at all cost’’ mentality.  Some details are escaping you and your own motivations could feel unclear.  You need to have faith in the elements that are outside of your control. Pay attention to the information coming via dreams or your unconscious. How can you maximize your need for growth and independence and channel it? What is your vision?  Once you know exactly what you are searching for, you will be able to formulate a solid plan to get there.

TAURUS/TAURUS RISING ♉︎

We are now six months away from your birthday. In the zodiac, the sign of Scorpio is at the exact opposite to the sign of Taurus. A mirror image.The Taurus-Scorpio axis has to do with accumulation or retention (Taurus), and evacuation and transformation (Scorpio). Both Taurus and Scorpio are highly sensual signs that perceive the world through their senses. Taurus’ primary concern is with grounding and solidifying its place in the physical world. You are a practical beast with a no non-sense attitude. You instinctively know how to find peace and stability. Scorpio’s focus, however, is on the intensity and power that comes with destroying old structures, favouring renewal through transformation. And that, my dear Taurus, is the kind of experience you are going through at the moment. Something is shifting as you begin a two year process of deep changes. Shedding an old skin can feel good but it can also feel extremely awkward in the first stages. Our resistance to change only aggravates what is trying to happen and a period of discomfort is normal. You can find some peace connecting with your community through a spiritual practice.

GEMINI/GEMINI RISING ♊︎

The recent opposition of Uranus to your ruler Mercury kick started a period of creativity for you. This could be a time when you crave more vitality and beauty in your day-to-day life. In a broader sense, you are aligning with your calling but to do that, you need to trust your inspiration. Trust that even though you might not be doing what you want for a living, you can still start on a creative project. There is a sort of divine discontent connected to your career or what you do for money, but it is a necessary passage to understand what you need. There are also some obligations that you have towards others that are keeping you from taking a leap of faith towards yourself and your dreams. Is there a way you can make more space for play, improvisation and curiosity on a daily basis while still being responsible towards the ones you love? There is an opportunity at the moment to heal some of the root causes of the discontent you feel towards your career, and it starts with having faith in yourself. Here is a great article about passion and doing what we love: http://markmanson.net/passion

CANCER/CANCER RISING ♋︎

Dear soft one, you are still undergoing major renovations in the heart department. This has been an ongoing process and for some of you it started around 2008. You have largely reinvented yourself and how you relate to others. To some extent, talking about these wounds have had a healing effect on you but it has also helped a lot of people around you. Deep down, you are an artist. Whether you think of yourself as one or not, you have the emotional intelligence of a poet. And sometime, that means being a guiding hand to others in their dark journey back to love. There is a quality in the way you express yourself that acts like a balm to those who are heart-broken. And it comes from all the wisdom you have acquired through your own heart breaks. But it also comes from being able to translate those wounds so that others can relate. You are carrying within you some nurturing qualities that are much-needed in the world. The question is: How can you be serious about others emotional storms without being carried away by them? How can you be a light house without being destroyed by the hurricanes? The process of restructuring how you deal with these questions has already begun. You are creating boundaries between you and others because your health and well-being depends on it. And you want to continue sharing your love in a way that feels healing and grounding for you.

LEO/LEO RISING ♌︎

The pressure is on to deliver the goods, darling. Your talents are in high demand, and November gives you an audience. It will be a busy month, and if you can reconcile all the loose ends and still make some time to nurture yourself, you will be one happy camper. Your ability to make money is crossing paths with your passion in a big way. Everyone aspires to do what they love for a living but reality is not always aligned with our dreams. You are invited to step into that possible future—for a small price, of course. You might have to use some of your savings to fund a project or have to rely on a generous hand to support your work. The real price, though, will come in the form of labour. You need to have a good plan in place. The next 2 years will test how serious you are about your talent, about your calling and about the means you choose to build your empire. You will be tested to see how dedicated you are about staying on the path you have chosen. And this month, is a glimpse into what that means. Being serious about what you love, and loving the work that it takes to get there.

VIRGO/VIRGO RISING ♍︎

”Under construction” is a great sign for you at the moment. You are beginning some major internal renovations. To help you along in this new phase, here is some background on the word renovation. Used in the early 15th century, the Middle English word that eventually became renovation (renovacyoun) referred exclusively to spiritual rebirth. It is derived from the Latin renovare, as re + novare means to make new, to reinvigorate; refresh; revive.
A big part of your renovations have to do with the perimeters of your heart. Strengthening your ”love organ” so that you can make wiser decisions about who you let in and who stays out. The emotional disillusion that you have experienced with other people has brought you here. Inside yourself, learning to love yourself inside and out. Giving shape to your internal landscape molding it so that you know precisely where you stand when you invite someone in. Standing from a place of power.

LIBRA/LIBRA RISING ♎︎

Libra, you want it all. The beauty, the relationship, the money, the fulfilling social life and the freedom to come and go as you want. Yes, I said THE word: Freedom. The word freedom is usually not used to describe Libra who like to be soooo acommodating. It is taboo for Libra to claim their need for space since the urge is always towards pair bonding. Libra would rather BE two, but something is happening.  You are learning to find satisfaction in going your own way without approval. You are realising that there are some things you would rather do on your own. You are slowly coming to grasp with the fact that your self-worth has nothing to do with the feedback you receive from others. It might feel really awkward at first. It might feel like you are stepping on other people or that you are being inconsiderate. And you probably are, but you will adjust. On another note, keep a close watch on how your thinking is affecting your health and make sure to communicate any resentments or difficult emotions as clearly as possible. You do not want the darkness to fester inside.

SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING ♏︎

Scorpio, you came into this world when the days get shorter and the light slowly disappears from our lives. You understand darkness and you are fearless when it comes to seeing the underbelly of life. In the last 3 years, you became an expert in dealing with some very difficult parts of yourself. A sort of training camp to see what you are made of and how much pressure you are capable of sustaining. And guess what? You made it out to the other side.  With a few good scars but also with more power and more self-knowledge than ever before. You can be proud of the work you have accomplished to shed some old self-defeating habits. Your focus is now turning towards your resources as you find better ways to secure your place in the world. And somehow stepping outside of yourself and into a larger group might be exactly what is needed.  Your ability to generate revenue is closely linked to your collaborations. You will be able to maximize your potential if you join forces with others towards a creative goal. Brainstorm with your friends. Invite others in your magic circle.

SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING ♐︎

Everyone knows how much freedom is important to you. You are a wild spirit who like to come and go as you please. No one would dare make demands on you if it made you feel trapped in some ways. Except the new guy in town.  Maybe you didn’t get the memo yet? His name is Saturn, Lord of Time. Here is the thing, he was looking for a place to live for the next couple of years and he decided that you would make a good roommate. It doesn’t need to be difficult.  In fact he might have a really beneficial influence on you in the long run, if you make a few small adjustments. He is quite demanding when it comes to getting your shit together but he might reward you…with more responsibilities. He will make sure that you are not holding on to some unrealistic pipe dreams and he will test you. Fortune will come if you humbly focus on your craft and get better at what you do. And that could come in the form of teaching what you already know.  Clean out the internal and external clutter, and delineate a good strategy for where you would like to be in two years from now.  Saturn likes a good plan and you have to respect the dude. He is your guide and mentor through this rite of passage into a more mature version of your wild self.

CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING ♑︎

It is usually hard to get a Capricorn to change his direction once his is mind made up. It’s not that you are not flexible, far from that.  But you know what you want and usually you have the wisdom required to make the proper decisions. Perpetually progressing towards your goal with the iron will.  Except now.  You might be doubting your own stoic motivations.  A small voice within you is whispering a poetry that feels unfamiliar but also very soothing. We could name that little voice Inspiration. Here is the thing: Inspiration often comes when we have a crisis of faith but sharing her is often the best way to restore it. Inspiration doesn’t have a linear trajectory.  It is a twisted up and down road with many dead ends. And it can feel unsettling for a Capricorn who usually delineates his trajectory. By letting inspiration take over your mind  you might be able to reach some of your goals in ways that are not forseeable from a practical perspective.

AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING ♒︎

Love has been the word on your mind all summer. It can feel strange for you to be spending  your mental energy on fluffy thoughts.  Especially that you have so much work to do, and that work might of suffered a little. But it feels good to share common interest. Teaming up might be the solution to bring in more revenue. An important thing to keep in mind as you share your resources, is that you are getting a fair deal.  Make sure that you are not giving up on your integrity and beliefs when you take part in a group project. Make sure also that responsibilities are shared equally so that you don’t end up with the grunt of the work. Even though you are doing things from the perspective of your higher ideals, not everyone sees it that way. Delineating responsibilities within the group might save you headaches down the road.

PISCES/PISCES RISING ♓︎

How much are you actually surrendering of yourself to succeed in the world? You are in a period of your life where the sacrifices required of you might exceed what is humanly possible. The funny thing is that you might not even realise it. Being the less selfish sign of the zodiac means that people can make unrealistic demands on you and you don’t even notice how ridiculous it is. You will accommodate generously and most of the time from a dedicated and genuine interest to share your wisdom. The push and pull you are feeling at the moment is happening between yourself, your career and a special person in your life. You might feel divided between the responsibilities you have taken in your work and the demands of a loved one. You are on the back burner because you put yourself there. Pressure is on to deliver the goods. Drawing boundaries to know where you end and where other begins might be a smart idea, even if it’s just a draft.
