March Horoscopes

Important dates this month:  Ash Wednesday is the 1st, International Women’s Day is the 8th, Purim and Daylight Savings Time begins on the 12th, St. Patrick’s Day on the 17th, and the Vernal Equinox on the 20th.

Angels

It is so wonderful to know that s surround us and are always here for us no matter what the problem or concern.  Many pray to Angels for guidance, or for such things as good opportunities, improved health, meeting a romantic partner, protecting their children, etc.  There are many reasons to pray to Angels.

But what do Angels do for us?

They are here to guide us along life’s bumpy roads and to assist us when we feel as if we need an additional helping hand.  Angels are really not here just to tell us what we should do with our lives because after all, we were blessed (or cursed, depending upon your point of view) with free will.

They can help us become aware of otherwise inconspicuous opportunities or give us deep insight into an issue that had been troubling us.  Angels help with giving you (what I like to call) “super intuition” so you know in an instant if something seems right or if things seem just a little too good to be true.

Is it true that there is an Angel for every building and plane?

I have heard this many times and it seems as if it should be true, but I have no proof.  I guess one would have to go on faith.  I personally asked if this was true, what happens to all of those in plane crashes or who died in the Twin Towers and my answer from Angel experts were that they were there assisting the souls cross over easily.  Transition was seamless.

Is it true that Nature Spirits report directly to the Angels?

In the hierarchy of Angels, Nature Spirits, such as fairies, pixies, gnomes, trolls, etc., do report directly to the s.  They work with Mother Nature to make the flowers bloom in the spring and carry the cool spring currents which allow seeds to glide and land in various places; they keep the grasses green and keep the flowers vibrant in the summer as well as try to keep the water levels high enough to keep the flora from wilting!  Nature Spirits help the leaves turn brilliant colors in the fall and aid the tree in pulling back its chlorophyll into the tree trunks and thereby getting them ready for a long winter’s hibernation.  In the winter, the Nature Spirits guide the snow, wind, freezing temperatures and regulate ice storms, icicles, and the melting of this frozen form of water.

Why can’t I see Nature Spirits?

Some people can see them and it’s a delightful sight to see them aiding our planet.  I always say why can some people see s and others not?  It’s the same truth for the Nature Spirits.  Be open to them and ask them to show themselves.  They are very shy but if they know you are Nature Spirit friendly, they may surprise you and let you get a glimpse of them one day while you are in the yard or garden.

Can a soul of a loved one who has passed become an Angel?

No.  Angels are another life stream and cannot be your departed Mother, Father, Aunt, Uncle or any other relative.  However, they can become spirit guides to help guide you until it is their time to reincarnate to another earthly body.

Is it wrong to ask that my loved one stay with me when they have passed?

If you are doing it out of love, how can it be wrong?  Most spirits stay earthbound because of the emotional bond between them and a family member.  They feel as if they have to help their family who was left behind and who is emotionally spent.  The best thing is to accept the death as soon as you feel it is appropriate for you (it can be up to a year or more) and wish your loved one well on their journey through the 12 planes of Heaven. You must tell them that you are now able to move on without them and that they must do the same. They must move forward.

Can Mediums give me messages from my Angels?

Many can and many are charlatans.  Beware!  Just be sure that it is a reputable channel or medium that you have contacted because they can say anything and how would you know that it is the truth?  If you really need to know what your Angel is trying to tell you – meditate, pray, or just be still and listen!  You can always tell if you are hearing Heavenly prayers or wishes.  If it feels awkward or wrong to you, then you may have been tapping into something else which may be considered negative.  Angels never lead you astray or hurt you (or anyone), so if you feel you are getting messages that may be considered “wrong”, then you can be assured you are not getting heavenly advice or direction.  However, most people can sense their Angels and know what to do after asking for guidance, so try it.

Is there anything else I should know about Angels?

I think trusting their judgment is important and you will get this as you become more involved with them and you see the results of their input.  Angels are always willing to listen to you and are waiting to help you in any way they can.  You are a Light Being and they want to assist you get “the experiment” here on Earth so that your soul can be a more educated one when it progresses to the next level.

What if they don’t answer my prayers?

I hear this a lot from my students.  Not all prayers can be answered as you would like them to be and some of them can’t be answered for your own good.  Maybe it is not the right time for your wishes to be brought into your life – maybe you are meant for another experience or another path.  Just keep praying and keep the faith.  Whatever you need will be there for you at the appropriate time.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Your interest in getting out and doing something exciting after being thwarted by the winter weather is becoming a priority.  It’s almost as if you want to extend yourself to friends and groups that you haven’t had time for in the past.  There also seems to be many frustrations and limitations in home life that you wish to handle and change.  Relationships are going in a different direction.  You want to find people who can reciprocate your generosity and want to start receiving instead of always being the giver.  Arians will learn many karmic lessons along the way, but once you realize that the only thing constant in life is change – you will be in a different mindset to attract new opportunities and embrace the fun in life.

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

Your career seems to be doing very well with all of the changes going on around you.  You seem to shine now, so keep doing whatever you are doing.  Good luck is protecting you while letting you gain more creativity and innovation in everything you do.  Dealing with many issues now keeps your mind racing in many directions.  You need to slow down, make a list and follow it.  You are too scattered at the present time.  Money seems to be an issue so careful budgeting makes sense now because it seems as if there will be many unusual or unexpected expenses in the weeks ahead.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

This should be a very spiritual cycle for all Gems who have been having a difficult time in many areas.  The eclipses have not been as positive as you would have liked so this is more of a time for planning, organizing, foundation work, changes in thinking processes and attracting new, positive energy.  This is a time to study metaphysics and parapsychology as well as taking many new classes for recreation or additional formal education for employment purposes.  Creativity is your way out of this crazy time.  Make something beautiful; spend time writing your life story, a blog or add something clever on to your Facebook page for all to share.  Do artwork or photography.  Get out and be creative and flexible and by doing that, you will start to change the vibrations around you to a more positive and loving nature.

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

This is a good time for Cancerians to make some positive moves whether it is in business or school.  What a great time for many opportunities to be presented to you and the good news is, no matter which opportunity you grab, it will be the right one for you.  Adversely, if you don’t grab onto opportunities, they will pass you by and never return.  You are thinking in a more fanciful way and can talk your way in and out of a paper bag this month.  Cancerians have luck on their side, but taking inappropriate risks is never a good thing.  Be prepared for partnership issues if your stubborn side rears its ugly head.  You are too good to let other people suffer for your insensitivity to their needs so be compassionate and loving when it is appropriate.  Love issues may be tricky now so just be a good listener and think about your response to issues before making it worse by being sarcastic.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

Issues balancing your budget and checkbook seem to be at hand.  This is a great time to buy what you need and not what you want.  You may also want to sell things that are no longer needed on eBay or Craigslist, etc. to get some of the money you need to pay off debt or buy what you currently need.  Health improves as you take care of any medical issues with doctor visits and a better diet and exercise program.  People are interfering with your goals so some slight agitations occur.  Take a yoga class, go to a spa, relax and chill out a little.  As usual, you take things much too seriously and you need to just “let it go.”  In the scheme of things, is anything that important if it gets you ill?

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

Home life can be problematic sometimes.  There is a lot going on in your life and you really need to be more determined and adamant than usual.  You need to follow your lists (and not just make them).  You should also stop being so sensitive now and just see things from the stereotypical Virgo logic.  Once you handle things in this extremely detailed and focused way, things will be much easier.  Children and home life may not help you get what you need out of life at the moment, but there is a lot of good intention.  You are needed and loved, so if you can’t do everything that you want to do at this time, give it a longer time frame for your dreams and goals to come to fruition.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

You may feel as if the weight of the world is on your shoulders and you may be right.  There are so many obstacles, concerns, issues, limitations and responsibilities that you need to handle and you feel as if you may never get from under all of these obligations in one piece.  The good news is “you will!”  You may feel somewhat depressed or unhappy from time to time until you adjust to the fact that this is a transitory feeling.  It will be gone before you know it, so just let it go.  You can be super sensitive now and feel as if no one understands how you feel; you may be surprised at how much everyone is trying to help you on so many levels, if you let them.  Partnerships can be disheartening, but you can listen to your partner’s concerns and try to be more patient and all will be fine.

˜SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20

Love life is interesting now and things seem to be changing in a very positive direction.  You can get closer to the one you love and your whole relationship can go to a new level, if you want it to.  Children can be involved in helping you make a good life for yourself so give them a chance to see what they have in store for you.  Your ambition and drive make you a formidable challenge this month.  You know what you want and you are trying to go after it.  Career is stable so whatever you do for a living will continue to bring in a salary and keep your finances balanced as long as you don’t go overboard on impulse buying.

 SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

Taking care of your health is very important this month.  Have you been trying to lose weight and exercise?  Have you started in January as a New Year’s resolution and now it’s a fond memory?  Get back on track. Your vitality is down and it may just be that you are trying to accomplish too much and not giving yourself enough rest and time to unwind.  You may be anxious about career issues so just try to do your job and be a bit more flexible when it comes to your work.  There may be some changes in your workload, so be prepared for it by resting and eating properly.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Even though things seem very dramatic, things will calm down.  No one needs more drama in their lives so it may be time that you release the people who are always draining you and wanting you to help them out without giving you any reciprocal energy in return.  You must be strong and learn how to say no.  Examples may be by telling them that tonight you are busy, you are on your way out to dinner, you are entertaining friends/family at your home and just ask if you may you call them next week, etc.    Even though Pluto is bringing you a tad of drama and trauma into your life, you will be triumphant in moving forward in the way you want to go.  If changes come to your workplace, do not fear new opportunities.  Welcome them.  Love life is also a mystery.

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17

Travel plans may be coming together for later in the year.  You want to get out of your humdrum routine and see exotic places or at the very least, just get away from your current surroundings.  Additional formal education as well as certification classes or workshops will be very helpful in getting you on the right track for your future.  This is also a good time to add creativity with the hope of relaxing to your otherwise very crazy life.  There will be lots of time for creating works of art, writing down important events in your life and even figuring out what the future has in store for you. There is a new road ahead of you filled with wonder, new beginnings and wonderful possibilities.  When things hit a speed bump in life, it is the time to take a leap of faith.  You will succeed in all that you do this month, if you actually get out and do it.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

New romance is always a possibility as well as continued luck and changes pushing you into a new life.  Others find you sexually attractive now so date the one who you intuitively feel is the right one for you.  You feel that you are more attractive and in shape and want to continue with improving yourself on so many levels, mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically. If you are holding onto a job or relationship just because “it is comfortable,” it is time for you to do something about it.  Stop living in a comfortable life and take a stretch to see how life can help you get back into the ball game.  You are a wonderful creation of the universe and all of the issues and doubts that have been on the back shelf, need to be taken down, dealt with and cast aside.

February Horoscopes

Important dates this month:  Groundhog Day and Candlemas on the 2nd, Lunar Eclipse on the 10th, St. Valentine’s Day on the 14th, Sun enters Pisces on the 18th, Presidents’ Day on the 20th, Solar Eclipse on the 26th, and Mardi Gras and Shrove Tuesday on the 28th.

SOLAR AND LUNAR ECLIPSES

Eclipses bring a glimpse of upcoming events that will unfold in your life!  That’s why I usually say to gauge the eclipse’s effect on you, see what you had done that day and your next six months will be the same.  If you had a good day, fun with family and friends, a great day at work, and everything went in a positive direction, then your next six months (when the next eclipse hits) should be exactly the same.  The bad news is if you have a dreadful day, your next six months will not be as positive as you would have liked.

Eclipses may bring news of anything from an engagement, marriage or baby, a career promotion, crucial travel or a contract that will bring positive opportunities to you to open your own business or to expand the one you have.  An eclipse could foretell the sale or purchase of a house, a move, obtaining a beloved pet, surgery or uncovering a very important health issue.  It can bring a graduation, or a new course of study.  It may also bring negative things like a divorce or separation.  If you are writing a book, it could mean that your book gets published and gets good reviews.  Eclipses move you forward and this is not only happening to you, but also to your family and friends.  Eclipses are turning points in your life.

Solar eclipses create new opportunities.  Usually, they are exciting, are often very positive, and bring news out of the blue.

Lunar eclipses are more emotional and bring final endings.  A full moon lunar eclipse is almost always an emotional time. Memories and dreams come up to the surface, and sometimes we feel sentimental.

Occasionally, an important person to you will be pushed in or out of your life.  A solar eclipse generally points to your significant other.  You either want to break up with him or he has to move away for his job or you have outgrown him.  Sometimes it makes the bonds stronger between you.

Lunar eclipses are generally female. A female friend may say she’s moving away or getting married, and you may not see her as often in the future. Your relationship may change quite a bit. Or, you may have a falling out, you may never see each other or speak again. The usual order we use for females in a lunar eclipse is: mother, wife, grandmother or female friend.

Your judgment may be impaired, or pieces of information may be missing, so bargain for more time to think about your decision or next action.

Keep your schedule flexible during an eclipse because you may not know what changes it will bring.

Eclipses give you changes and chances you never thought you would have, so carefully plan them and enjoy the next six months of your life.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Valentine’s Day should be a lot of fun, even if you may be spending it with friends (if you are single) or with your partner.  You refuse to take this celebration lying down!  You seem rather dynamic and expressive now although there are many secrets behind your bright eyes.  You will be introduced to many new friends and adventures.  While being tired of the humdrum life, you are now seeking fun, excitement and leisure activities. Arians are interested in traveling, taking new classes (possibly including some exercise classes) and finding out about subjects that they just have not had time to look into.  Some may even start or finish college and/or get new certifications or training in some area.  Your energy levels fluctuate; however, you are busy doing so many things that you don’t even realize you are tired until you get home and plop on the couch in front of the TV!  So much is going on in your life that it would be helpful to have a list of things that you want to accomplish and work on them a little each day; otherwise, you may have great intentions, but get little accomplished.

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

You need to express yourself a little bit more to those who love you.  Secrets are all well and good at times, but this is not one of those times to keep things inside as some feelings need to be shared with others; this will make you feel better.  You are super-sensitive at the moment and although luck is following close behind you, there is just too much to do for you to notice how well your life is really going. Your temperament is much more balanced than in the recent past.  Your romantic relationship should be improving tremendously on all levels and although your career or vocation may be in question, the changes coming your way are imperative in order to push you on the right path.  Your intuition is getting stronger and everyone is noticing.  Remember to go with your gut feelings because this time, they are absolutely correct.  Major decisions should be made soon so that you can move on with your life.  Make sure you make your Valentine’s Day plans ahead of time so that you can do exactly what you would like when you would like to do them.  Consulting with your partner would be a nice touch that will make you both happy.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

You are the proverbial chicken running around without its head these days.  You have wonderful plans of what you need to accomplish, but then go off and do something else.  Try to focus on your goals and try to finish them (or next 10 on your list for you dualistic signs:  Gemini, Sagittarius and Pisces). Relationships are redefined and plans may be in the works for you to take your relationship to the next level.  If single, you may finally meet someone who is in both your best interests.  Be open to those who may not fall into your narrow category of who is acceptable to date.  Cast your net into a larger pool of individuals, even those with different beliefs or life paths.  Money still seems to be somewhat of concern.  There just is never enough, but with budgeting and only buying what you need and not what you want right now, you will get through these lean times better than most.  However, you can still have a great Valentine’s Day by using Restaurant.com coupons or going to lunch or an early dinner.  Other venues such as museums, art galleries or taking a stroll through New York City may be just what your purse (or pocket) needs.

 CANCER – June 21 – July 21

Finances are of major concern now, but you will come through this situation with flying colors if you don’t panic. Spending on non-essentials is not an option now, so if there’s a new car, home repairs or projects that you feel need to get started, try holding off from starting them for at least a few months.  Of course, if something is in dire need of repair, handle that immediately, but other things can wait. There may be some upcoming dealings with wills or inheritances, or if not, you may be getting ready for some issues with the IRS.  Make sure your income tax return is accurate so that you are not audited.  You may also be dealing with issues regarding your spouse’s money, such as him/her losing her employment, starting new employment (perhaps a home-based business) and possibly not making as much as in the past.  These new endeavors will work out and you will be back in a comfortable position soon.  Valentine’s Day should be a fun time and you may want to spend it with your family rather than just your partner.  Do what makes you feel happy and do what you want to do for a change.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

It is a time to concentrate on one of the two most important things in your life – your home and your career.  Which will it be?  Home life should be a place of relaxation, meditation, fun, family and quiet time.  Work is where the overwhelming stress and heavy energy makes you feel crazy; eating on the run or at your desk is not as healthy.  You must get away from your office even if you eat quickly and take a walk around the parking lot, in a mall or by doing a few calming errands.  Sleep may be affected by your erratic schedules, traffic, and tending the house, dinner, children, the laundry, cleaning up, etc.  You must redefine the chores in your home since you don’t seem to be very good about them being delegated at work.  Leos do not understand that they do not have to do everything by themselves, although they usually do.  Others are more than capable of helping out, doing part of the work or handling chores at home.  Help yourself to have some precious down time by delegating responsibilities at work and at home.  Leos will plan a romantic Valentine’s Day with their partner even though it may be home based.  Just spending time with your significant other is enough for you since you want the genuine intimacy now and are not as interested in the gifts of the day.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

You are trying very hard to get things done, but to no avail.  Unexpected circumstances pop up to change your plans in a minute, so you need to go with the flow to get your list of “to do’s” done in a timely manner.  There is new interest the future, children, and having some adventure and fun for a change rather than shouldering all of the responsibilities within your family.  Love life either needs to be spiced up or one of you will look elsewhere for romance. There seems to be a lot of dissatisfaction in your life right now; finding out how you can change your life in a positive way would be important at this time, especially since you really don’t want to rock the boat, but you do want to be happy.  Financial concerns also add to your confusion or depression during the month, but being you are a very practical and clever sign, you will find ways to patch things up and fix almost everything in your life with flying colors and pizzazz.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

Health issues may be of concern to you, so if this is true, make an appointment with your health care provider.  Melancholy and mild sadness may also try to find its way into your daily routine.  The good news is that if you work hard during this period, the mental issues will disappear. If you worry about everything and just concentrate on the problems, concerns, fears, doubts and worries that you may have, you may be physically ill more than you thought possible. Get second opinions and use your intelligence to NOT make things worse than they are, especially in your own mind. Why not take a short weekend getaway to relax, rejuvenate and maybe do some of the things you usually do not have time for during the rest of your week. Love matters may be blown out of proportion, so give your loved one a chance to explain or try to be more patient.  With communication and kindness, you will both be able to patch things up and have so much fun on Valentine’s Day.

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20

Your enthusiasm and knowledge will help you to shine in so many ways.  Optimism, good energy and strength are behind you. Have a special Valentine’s Day with your significant other and make the rest of the month just as happy. Work and health are affected now.  Things may seem to be blown out of proportion, but if it’s too much of a good thing – who cares?  You have a lot to look forward to and so many things to start and accomplish.  There may be some restlessness in your life, but once you decide what it is you want, you will be able to handle any doubts, worries or fears to get to your goal.  Additional training, lectures, seminars or workshops will help aid your career as well as satisfy the need you have to learn more about the subjects of your choice.  This is a creative time where you should paint, write, do crafts or anything that you feel the urge to do in the creative sense because it will bring you peace of mind and spirit.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

Sagittarians feel more empowered now and want to have a wonderful Valentine’s Day with their partner.  Let your significant other make some plans this Valentine’s Day and you should just relax and take a deep breath and know that life is finally calming down and going in the right direction for you both. Personal and business partnerships seem to be going in the right direction if you just lighten up a little bit. You should not take things too seriously now but rather start focusing on your goals in a more practical way. Artistic and innovative pursuits are imperative now because you want to accomplish so much and you will do well within this arena.  You are getting organized, finishing up many projects that were in the works and feeling so much better about your accomplishments and yourself in general.  Some are publishing books, others are having art shows and some are just being proud of making all of their dreams come true.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

You may start a new chapter in life and go in another direction.  Finances may play a part in this new direction, so be smart and double check your will, important papers and keep everything up to date, signed, sealed and notarized!  Cleaning out your home or office, decluttering, and getting rid of things which tie you down is important.  You are trying to life the phrase, “voluntary simplicity” and will do quite well with it over the next few months if you make sure your paperwork doesn’t keep you stymied.  Friends are very compassionate and thoughtful and will help you through any issues or concerns that you may have.  Confide in them.  Many wish they can repay you for all the good deeds you have done for them in the past, but don’t know how to help you.  This will be an important time of serious bonding with your family and friends, so make the most of it especially with Valentine’s Day just around the corner.  If you have a significant other, this is a really good time to talk over your future plans and dreams so you will both be on the same page.

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 17

You would love to start thinking of future travel plans, but know that you have so many other obligations and responsibilities that need to be taken care of first.  Taking care of house and office projects will help you get organized quicker and will leave you with more free time to do whatever it is you would like to do.  Family is very supportive now.  You will also have a lovely Valentine’s Day with your partner, if involved, or you will make a day of it with close family and friends.  So much is going your way, but you have to stop and smell the roses before you understand how much you really have.  Creativity, imagination, originality and ingenuity come together to help you figure out the future that will be right for you.  Things may seem a bit confusing now, but with logic and reasoning, you will come to the proper conclusions and answers for your best interest.  Stop working so hard as it doesn’t seem as if your extra time and effort is being appreciated.  It may be time to look elsewhere for employment, but be sure you have a job lined up before giving notice.  Whatever you decide to do with your career, such as ignoring the problems, or just getting a new job, you will be able to handle either with grace and professionalism.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Many changes are coming your way, although you may not realize that they’re coming!  Important changes make you realize that you are not alone and that you have many good friends who would help you through anything if you asked for help.  If married or have a significant other, things seem to be going well and your Valentine’s Day will be fun, adventurous and maybe even a little bit spicy.  Try not to be too vague about where you would like to go or what you would like to do, since it will come off as indifference and may cause unpleasant issues.  Emotions surface about the past, so keep them in check until you feel ready to discuss things that bother you.  Being super-sensitive now will only make you nervous when you have to approach significant discussions.  Once things are aired out, you will be surprised at how much more relaxed and relieved you will both be.  Life will be much easier and more comfortable for your family and you.  Enjoy this month as it seems you need the break from stress.

December Horoscopes

Important dates this month:  Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day on the 7th, Full Moon on the 13th, Winter Solstice on the 21st, Hanukkah and Christmas on the 25th, and Kwanzaa on the 26th.

Christmas/Hanukkah

Most of us look forward to these holidays in December.  It’s a time when we know we will interact with family and friends and enjoy parties, gatherings, meals and conversations with those we care about the most.  This is the gift-giving season where many of us love to go shopping for those special presents to give as grab bags, at office parties or exchange with family.  You need just the right gift for a friend in the office or a neighbor who had helped you during the year.  You have to get the right piece of clothing in the right color and size for your sister, mother best friend or aunt and make sure you get the exact fishing or golf gear that your brother, husband or father might want.  Have fun while shopping and don’t drive yourself crazy.  It’s supposed to be a fun time of the year and remember, “It’s the thought that counts.”

I have made it very easy on myself.  Everyone gets gift cards to the stores they like.  I love to give Amazon or Starbucks cards for the mailman, the gate attendant in the gated community in which I now live, the hair stylist, the woman who does your mani/pedi and for those random people who give you a gift for no reason.  For my three great nieces and nephews, I get them a gift card to a clothes store, but buy them some gifts that they can open on Christmas Eve with the family.  I’m sure you know that a 2-month old, a 3 and 6-year old really couldn’t care about gift cards or clothes, (or really understand what they are) so it’s always easier to have them open something that’s fun. I understand from my niece that her daughter (3) is a little fashionista already so she’ll do all of the shopping for her siblings with my gift cards!  And it’s always good to have some extra cards on hand; if you don’t need them, you could use them for family and friends’ birthdays or treat yourself to something you’ve always wanted.

Just think about giving gift cards because after the actual holiday, stores have epic sales so your gift card can go so much further than the original amount.  I’ve been doing this for a few years now and everyone loves to buy exactly what they want without having to return the wrong color, size or item in those ridiculously long lines at the retail stores after the holidays.

Whatever your traditions for the holiday are, I wish you happiness, much fun, good food, good memories to hold onto and that you get exactly what you want!

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Holiday plans go well.  You are planning fun times with family and friends, but be very careful about going over your budget.  We know you want to impress your guests, but you can do it with some pre-planning and taking advantage of store sales for food and decorations.  You will have fun, enjoy holiday celebrations and won’t think twice about spending more than planned on a gift for a loved one.  Your generosity of spirit is magnetic and extends to your friends who will expect an extra special gift.  Career opportunities are plentiful and you are probably considering changing jobs or parts of your job that will bring you more attention, more income or where you will use your intellect. Your attention is not on work at this time, but in planning all the wonderful shopping, parties, travel and fun you hope to have during this month.  Your practical side comes into play where you realize you need more rest and must limit your help to others who are always taking advantage of your kind nature.  All in all, you are on the go, having fun, and connecting with friends and family who love your company.

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

You are very happy that you got most of your holiday shopping done ahead of schedule.  You are looking for great deals and sales and are doing quite well following your budget.  Career opportunities are plentiful and you are probably considering changing jobs or parts of your job that will bring you more attention, more income or where you will use your intellect.  Things are getting boring. Your practical side comes into play where you realize you need more rest and must limit your help to others who are always taking advantage of your kind nature.  Holiday travel seems important; however, make sure your travel plans are solid before venturing to your holiday destinations.  Family conflicts may arise and seem unimportant to you, but the issues are important to others.  Don’t get into a battle of wits with your family and friends since this is the season of forgiveness and peace of mind, body and spirit.  Change is good even though you may not feel it at the present time.  If you find yourself in unexpected circumstances, just know that you are being guided on a different path.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 19

Miscommunication is prevalent this month so be clear about your intent or what you are asking others to do for you.  Repeat things so that you are on the same page as well. Home life tends to get somewhat stressful as you try to plan the perfect holiday party.  Balance issues between your work load in your career and the responsibilities of your family weigh you down.  Why can’t you delegate?  Is it up to you to handle everything?  Are you working too much so that you are not avail. Compromise is needed to avoid arguments with your partner or loved ones since you just don’t have much time to think things through properly and make an informed decision. But you should not always be the one to compromise.  You have given much too much to others and it’s about time you get some of that good energy coming back to you!  You get annoyed when people question where your time is spent and that you may be able to organize your life better.  You do more than most of the other signs and you would like to be acknowledged for that, but just be happy that you are able to run your life the way you want to or else, you just pick up and find happiness elsewhere.

CANCER – June 20 – July 21

Even though you may feel that change is unsettling, it will be a positive experience, so go with the flow this month.  There are lots of changes coming your way!  Differences of traditions and philosophies of life will be tested and you may be persuaded to look at things from another point of view. Even though you may want to stay home this holiday season, be a bit flexible if your partner wants to travel to visit family.  Staying home means you have to cook and entertain; however, it also makes you feel comfortable to be in your own home to do whatever you want to. The choice is yours.  Using your intellect to make decisions rather than emotional ones will help you choose the better option.  Love life and family seems to bring you much happiness and joy, even though you are handling too much of the responsibility.  New beginnings in the home, perhaps redecorating or some much needed repair projects, help you focus on your goals for the future.  You may be starting over or feel as if you need the changes that are being thrust upon you.  Make buying presents a special family occasion.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

This is a good time to rejuvenate, relax and do whatever you feel is important for yourself and your happiness.  It is a time to help others get more organized and as usual, you help others with their challenges and issues and are always going the extra mile.  This is also a time where you will take on the responsibility of a family issue.  Do the best you can to help those family members compromise; however, don’t beat yourself up if it does not go the way you feel it should. It is important for you to entertain your family and friends, but be mindful of your health.  Take enough time for yourself and let others give you a hand in the kitchen or with the preparations.  You have done your best and sometimes things just have to work themselves out.   Arguing is probable if you let yourself get caught up in the politics of an issue.  Be aware of the explosive energy surrounding you and do your best to diffuse all negative situations.  You will be able to balance this unsettling energy and be the hero of the day by diffusing some heated moments.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

Getting your list and checking it twice is a great way for a Virgo to start their holiday shopping.  Holidays are always stressful, so if you are more relaxed and plan well in advance, your holidays will run quite smoothly.  Know what you want to spend and then comparison shop so you get the best price for the item, as if you wouldn’t do that anyway! Try not to take life so seriously now as it is supposed to be fun.  If there are any issues that you do not agree with, let them go for now and deal with them after the holidays.  Situations with personal and business partnerships may be confusing and upsetting at times, so be prepared to stand your ground and give your frank opinion in a tactful manner.  Career may be changing in many ways and it would be helpful for you to know in which direction you would like to proceed.  Do you want your own home based business?  If so, go for it now as the energy around you is positive and open to so many wonderful possibilities to accomplish your future goals and dreams.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 21

Spending money for beautiful things is a constant in your life; however, it may be time to ask your partner if he or she agrees with your gift choices.  Ask for his or her opinions of gifts for the family and your closest friends.  Consulting a partner on financial choices or where you spend the family riches will allow you to spend more freely.  Much good energy is around you so plan what steps you would like to take to accomplish some dreams and goals.  Your personality shifts to being more self-confident with less issues regarding insecurities and anxieties.  This is the time for you to accomplish what needs to be done.  Career, travel and spiritual pursuits all seem to become important at the same time so be prepared to be scattered and yet, you will be having the time of your life exploring all the possibilities around you.

SCORPIO – October 22 – November 20

Your personality shifts to being more self-confident with less issues regarding insecurities and anxieties.  This is the time for you to accomplish what needs to be done.  Career, travel and spiritual pursuits all seem to become important at the same time so be prepared to be scattered and yet, you will be having the time of your life exploring all the possibilities around you.  Spending money for beautiful things is a constant in your life; however, it may be time to ask your partner if he or she agrees with your gift choices.  Ask for his or her opinions of gifts for the family and your closest friends.  Consulting a partner on financial choices or where you spend the family riches will allow you to spend more freely.  Much good energy is around you so plan what steps you would like to take to accomplish some dreams and goals.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

Try to be a little more sensitive with a loved one’s feelings as it seems you may be somewhat tactless or thoughtless to his or her needs.  This may be because you are so caught up in the whirlwind around you, or the holiday season, that you don’t have time for petty nonsense.  You may be on different wavelengths so try to find common ground.  Get up and go to holiday parties, friends’ get-togethers or that holiday getaway with a loved one even though he or she may not want to leave home.  Home life may be a bit too hectic for your taste and you may try to go out or not deal with specific issues.  They will not go away, so deal with them directly.  A good outcome will result from any effort you put into making positive changes in work, formal education, long distance travel and finances, so start thinking about which areas of life you would like to change and start making a few small changes throughout the season.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Networking becomes effortless as you meet many more people through new clubs, memberships and organizations. New friends and associations help propel your career through this holiday season.  Be careful not to let your personal and business lives conflict with each other as it won’t be worth the time and trouble.  Deal with each area of life separately and complete any unfinished projects or endeavors.  Being organized for the upcoming year will help you get a jump on your goals.  Lists will help you with this organization and will help you focus on your priority issues.  Go out and have some fun.  You can’t be all business or too serious now since this is the time to be happy and jolly!  Accept holiday party invitations and do some of the entertaining yourself.  You will feel very relaxed and others will appreciate your thoughtfulness.

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 18

Spirituality is more important as you unfold the meaning of your traditional beliefs.  This is a good time to think about what you want to do in the future, perhaps in a creative field or perhaps to take creative classes you never had the time to take in the past.  What a wonderful time for you to look into new cultures and traditions. Your creative and artistic abilities are amplified during this festive season so don’t be afraid to show off your abilities to your family and friends.  You may wish to kick back and unwind during the holidays and not have the traditional holiday meals or parties with your family.  You may wish to keep a day for yourself where you could organize your home, entertain other family members or friends or just relax and watch the blinking lights on the Christmas tree or other holiday decorations.  Energy abounds and you wish to accomplish so much.  You can do anything you need to do at this time, but limit yourself to a few tasks per day so you can re-energize and continue on the fast track that you have been living on for the last year.

PISCES – February 19 – March 19

If circumstances seem confusing or dramatic, this is the best time to take that energy and turn it into a positive result.  The holidays will be exciting and fun because you have planned so much to do.  Loved ones would be adaptable enough when unexpected circumstances change your plans at the last minute.  These changes may be better than your original plans.  Things go very well, then fall apart, so it’s best that you just deal with situations as they happen rather than projecting the best or worst scenario for them. Things you know is protecting and guiding you to do the right thing.  Love issues may be a tender spot, so understand what the issue is and then do something to resolve it.  Using your mental agility will help you to optimistically deal with any concerns that come your way.  Career issues may be pushed to the foreground and some very important decisions about your future will need to be made.  Be sure you have all the facts before jumping to conclusions that may be incorrect.  If you need to make adjustments to goals, now is the time to make them.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Home life is the theme for this month. Positive changes will help you get to your goals and dreams. Emotional issues seem to be more restrictive or limiting and you may feel overwhelmed with choices you have to make. Take your time in making a decision and when you finally do, do not change your mind. Your vacillation will keep you making the same mistakes over and over again. There is so much wonderful energy around you to do and have anything you want now, so be ready to make a change, take an appropriate risk and be happy again. If things are too overwhelming, take a breath, meditate, try a relaxing walk around your neighborhood, talk to a friend about it, or pray. There are so many amazing opportunities ahead of you to become the person you want to be and have the things you feel you need in life – so go for them. If others try to make you feel negative about any of your decisions, perhaps it’s time to let them go.

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

What a great time to start that diet or exercise program, if that is your wish. You are trying your best to shape up, look good and get out there to impress everyone. The only one you need to impress is yourself. Make sure you have some quiet time for you since it looks like you are very busy, too scattered and doing too much for others. Do you have some unfinished projects that your attention? Maybe others can do some things for themselves for a change (what a concept) and you can handle your own chores, goals, dreams and objectives. If this is a time for a healthcare checkup or annual physical, be sure to keep that appointment. You may be run down and exhausted so you want to make sure you’re your health is at its best with all of your obligations.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 19

Partnerships (business and personal) are very lucky now. If you want to start a business with a friend or colleague, what are you waiting for? Now is the time. If you are looking for a significant other, get yourself out there so the energy and opportunities can come your way. No one is coming to your door; you have to get dressed, go out and meet people. Lectures and seminars in your area of interest is always a good thing to do. Adult education courses are also a fine option. At the very least, you can go on personals sites and see what is out there for you. If in a relationship, this can be the time where you feel unsatisfied on many levels and are looking for a change. Be sure this is what you want because once you head in that direction, it will be very hard to come back to what you had.

CANCER – June 20 – July 21

Financial review is a good thing. See what you have and how you want to spend your money. It’s a great time to re-organize and finalize many issues relating to your financial goals, security and stability. Be open to spending on what you need. Emotionally, you feel drained and exhausted, overtired and fatigued, so it is up to you to do whatever you need to do to make yourself feel happier and healthier. Be sure to eat properly and take time to eat your meals. You don’t need to be one of those harried people who eat their meals in the car. That just isn’t a healthy way to eat and digest your food. Eating in the car causes more accidents than people using their cell phones! Surround yourself with those you love and talk about things that may be on your family’s mind. It is important to find out what issues need to be resolved, but first you have to know about them.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

This is an outstanding time to travel and/or continue your education. Many times traveling to foreign countries is an education in itself. There are so many fantastic opportunities for you if you are bold enough to take them. Be sure they are appropriate to your dreams and future goals; otherwise you will be wasting your time. So much good luck is around you that you can just about do anything with positive results, but what are you going to spend this good luck on? If you need to go back to school, get a new job, a new relationship, start a new business, move or just finish up home and personal projects – start the energy rolling in in a positive direction now.   Constructive energy is with you and although you may be cautious about some of the things you must finalize, handle them while the luck is with you.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

This is the time to make very important decisions about your current job and your future career. If things are not going the way you had expected, perhaps it’s time to make the change you have been thinking about for such a long time. Major issues need to be dealt with so that they don’t weigh heavily on you. Positive energy will allow you to deal with any issues that come your way, so do what must be done. Creativity and innovative ability will help you relax and accomplish so much. Be sure you have a written list of things to do so that you can feel as if you’ve made progress once projects are completed.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 21

New opportunities in your career will help you achieve many goals and dreams you had on the back burner. Are you interested in starting your own home based business perhaps? This is a great time to start any new adventure that you feel is in your best interest. So many changes are coming into your life that it would be a good idea to make the changes go in the direction you wish. Don’t let life (or anyone) push you into any direction; take a stand, make a plan and follow it so you can have everything that you feel would be an important addition to your life. Good luck and energy follows you around, so it would be a shame to lose out on the positive opportunities it will bring. Be strong, stop second guessing yourself and move in the direction that you feel the strongest.

SCORPIO – October 22 – November 20

So many things seem to be going on behind the scenes or in secret. You may be holding onto your own secrets or secrets of others. If this is the case, it would be wise to release them so that you don’t attract any of the negativity that they may attract. Others may also be keeping secrets from you. It is up to you to make others feel comfortable enough to share the things that are important for you to know. Try not to be judgmental or upset by any news you may receive. If you are open and loving, so many rewards will come to you. This is an amazing time to study esoterica or metaphysics, philosophy or religion. You seem to be making choices about belief systems or trying to enhance the ones you already have, so why not start in that direction now.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

You are open to making many important decisions and moving your life forward on many levels. Sag’s may wish to try new opportunities, new ventures, new beginnings, or just start going in a different direction. The changes will be important so this is a time to figure out what would be in your best interest and take the bull by the horns and do it! Home life may have some welcomed changes. Emotionally, you are in a much better place and feel relaxed, in control and secure. It’s a great time to write, paint, sing, dance, act or do whatever artistic endeavor you love. The enjoyment that your artistic abilities will bring you will be endless. For those who do not think they are artistic or creative, maybe this would be a great time to take a class in something you’ve always wanted to do so that you can see how wonderful your talents truly are.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

You may be making many decisions about your financial future, how to make your money grow or how to use it more prudently. It is a very important task to stretch your finances and you will do it well. You may feel restricted and limited in some way, but with your Capricorn intelligence and logic, you will be able to figure out what you need to do to make things work out well. Many important decisions need to be made and procrastinating won’t help. Some friendships may be at risk so be sure to be supportive of your friends and listen to their problems now – they may need your time and advice.

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 18

Family issues can be unsettling or crazy at times. There may be many issues to be settled and some serious talks with those you love. Make yourself heard and be strong enough to tell a loved one when they are wrong. Offer solutions that you feel will work for everyone. Finances also should be budgeted and each new project should be saved for so that you can pay cash and get the best price from the contractor, etc. Mentally, you are thinking very clearly, have a very optimistic attitude and are looking forward to a superb future filled with those you love, dreams coming true and great opportunities. Don’t let this energy pass you by.

PISCES – February 19 – March 19

Your family and you may be at different ends of the spectrum. You need to clarify what you need from them or what they are doing that is making you uncomfortable. Dealing with your spiritual journey is a positive step forward even if others do not understand what you are doing. Your path is yours alone. Be strong and know that your artistic and creative juices are flowing and you must do something positive with them now. Being the sympathetic helper of many, you will once again be tempted to help others while keeping your dreams and wishes on hold. Do whatever makes you comfortable, but be sure to know that your goals are just as important, if not more, than others. Take care of yourself for a change.

November Horoscopes

 

 

Important dates this month: Daylight Saving Time ends on the 6th, Election Day on the 8th, Veteran’s Day on the 11th, Thanksgiving Day on the 24th and Advent begins on the 27th.

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Day is usually about having large family gatherings and lots of good food and conversations. It’s also about having a few little arguments as is normal when the whole family gets together. It’s a day to remember what family means and how lucky we are to be able to be with our loved ones on this annual holiday. Family is important. Family is home. Family is the glue that keeps us all together when times get tough and is the enjoyment when things go well.

I am lucky to have a loving family. When I decided to move to Pennsylvania early in the year, my family was behind me. I was moving closer to my sister who was going to move to PA in the summer and my niece lived in PA for about two years. My daughter was still in NJ; however, she visits her cousin frequently, so I knew I’d see her more than I currently did.

It was amazing that for someone in the Feng Shui field to still have an inordinate amount of “stuff” in my house. Everything was neat and in its place, but as I went through the stuff that I wanted to pack and bring to my new house, I realized there were so many duplicates of things that I didn’t need. How many bowls or vases do you need? How many Tupperware containers? I had so many books, so started to go through everything and donated them to the local library, book fairs, friends and charities. The local charities and churches got many deliveries from me and still as I went through the garage, basement and attic, I had more stuff. I was beginning to think that the stuff multiplied at night!

My brother and sister were there for me with boxes, and helped me pack. Every extra moment they had, they were at my house helping me in some way whether it was throwing out garbage, rearranging furniture, bringing things to charities, delivering the cable boxes to the cable company.

I was going through an internal and external transition. I knew I didn’t want all this stuff with me, but in reality, it was a big deal to let some of it go. I had been in my home for over 36 years and now I was leaving. It was a time for rest, reflection and compromise. It was the hardest thing I had ever done since I moved from a small lake development in NJ to a gated community of 3,642 homes in the Pocono Mountains. It’s desolate, semi-rural, and so dark and quiet. But my brother came up to my house 3 days a week for a month to paint the rooms, clean the house, shampoo the rugs, and move my stuff into the house. My sister came to my house and helped put things away with me and she moved into her new home just a week before I did. She would do my banking in NJ since she still worked there and would give me cash when I gave her a check so I would have some cash in my pocket. I didn’t change my bank account over yet because I have too many deductions taken out of the account that it would be very confusing. We both complained at how many things you had to change when you move to another state and we helped each other with ideas and suggestions if one of us were stuck.

Many of you know, my 92-year old dad lives with me, so my sister takes him to her house every other weekend and the other weekends in the month, my brother stays with us here at my house because the trip to NJ is 83 miles one way. It’s a good time for me to do my errands and have some time to myself.

Of course, my best friend Linda helped me tremendously too by bringing multiple loads of boxes and stuff to my new Pocono house. She was the organizer and got things done quickly. I was sick during this whole prospect and lost 23 pounds in a month, but as I write this I am stabilizing my weight and feel fine now that most of the boxes are emptied or in the basement or attic. Even though I threw out too much to recall, it’s amazing to see how much junk we keep or store away in the attic or basement. When and if you move, you will also be surprised.

Still my sister and sister-in-law makes dinner for us a few times per month so I don’t have to cook every night which is a big help. My brother still takes care of my NJ house which didn’t sell yet. He does the lawn, throws out the garbage, cleans up and brings more stuff to PA for me. He is also finding some way to help me. Recently, my sister gave me a single bed for my fourth bedroom and my brother brought it to my house by tying it up on the top of his car. Now he sleeps on it when he visits twice a month and said it is a big improvement over the blow up air mattress.

I just wanted to say that I could not have made this move without my constant conversations with my brother and sister and with all their physical help with things that I couldn’t do for myself. I need a hip replacement, so my mobility is somewhat limited. Being I am in a lot of pain, I really appreciate their support and love.

Happy Thanksgiving to all. May you have the type of family that I have and may God bless you and your family during the Thanksgiving holiday and always.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Family is a key issue this month. It can go either way, so you can have a loving and tender relationship or you can have arguments and disagreements about silly things. Don’t let the items get out of hand especially around the holidays. This is a time to reflect, write, communicate your feelings with family and loved ones. It’s a time to explore and make some good times to remember. If you do write, this is the time to get that novel, play or short story done. If you don’t, perhaps this is a good time to take those mini-vacations you’ve always wanted to go on…perhaps a long weekend up in the mountains or at a favorite place. It’s a time to rethink your life and what you want to add or delete from it. Be honest with yourself about your wants so you can change your life to be the most positive one you can have during Thanksgiving.


TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

Home life improves and you feel as if you are going to have a wonderful month including the Thanksgiving holiday. Many pleasant surprises seem to be in your future, so be prepared to graciously accept what others want to offer. Your outlook is somewhat improved from the last several months and you are getting your life back on track. You need to figure out in which direction you would feel more comfortable and then go for it! This may include leaving some loved ones behind and finding new love interests. Be open to all kinds of new people coming into your life – it will be fun and you may even learn a thing or two. Work may be very busy and you feel as if you are so tired, you won’t want to take on another thing, even if it is to have fun. Pace yourself and you can have the best of both worlds – a very positive work experience and you may even enjoy new beginnings and/or new hobbies or interests as well.

 

GEMINI – May 20 – June 19

Life seems to be getting back on track, but with the holidays just around the corner, you may get overwhelmed again. Sit back, relax and do what you absolutely have to do for any particular day or circumstance. You don’t have to do everything for everyone. Limit yourself. It’s time for some fun and relaxation. Enjoy the holidays rather than being overwhelmed by them. Love life may be a little difficult at the moment but you have so many other things that need your attention. Finish those projects, get your house in order, and be sure to know what you really want out of life. Don’t just go with the flow; this is a time when you should be planning for the future. Take care of any medical issues and make appointments before or after the holidays so you can enjoy family and friends during the holidays. Don’t let your health suffer by ignoring regularly scheduled exams and appointments. Once they are over, you can get back to holiday fun knowing that you are healthy and that you will be around for a long time to enjoy everything or everyone that is important to you.

 

CANCER – June 20 – July 21

This is a time for partnerships and romance. Be sure you do not overlook any potential partners that may have loved you for some time but you didn’t notice or perhaps didn’t want to notice. This is an outstanding time for discussion, compromise and seeing each other’s points of view. It is a time where you will turn into best friends and truly understand each other on a new spiritual level. Thoughts and long discussions will be shared in a most loving and thoughtful way. You are extremely sensitive now so be sure that you don’t take too many things so personally as the other person probably didn’t even know you were offended or hurt by the comment. Ask questions like, “What do you mean by that?” to get to the proper conclusion or at the very least to give the proper response. Don’t second guess yourself about holiday plans and little things. Do what makes you feel great and have a wonderful holiday experience.

 

LEO – July 22 – August 21

What a time to be confused about your next steps. You want to be in a relationship, but you also want the flexibility to do whatever it is you want to do when you want to do it. You have great confidence in yourself, but you may seek another’s approval. There are those who would be happy to give you more advice than you want, so be very specific about the advice you seek. Just remember, your family and friends are just waiting to help you in any way as a thank you for all you have done for them. Let them assist you as you just can’t do everything by yourself any longer. Admit it – help would be welcome. Partnerships should be helpful now whether in business or in your personal life. Again, another clue that this is not a time for you to do things alone. Your Leo temper may get the best of you from time to time, but if that happens it may just be that there is too much on your plate and I don’t mean turkey! Put some things on the back burner and pace yourself so you can enjoy the holidays like everyone else.

 

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

During the start of the holiday season, be sure that you have taken care of mundane tasks so they you won’t be thinking about them. Update important papers such as wills, insurance policies, living wills, etc. You seem to be worried about too many inconsequential details now that no one else notices. This would be a wonderful time to turn your life around in a positive way. Take a healing or spiritual class. Learn something new that will give you a different perspective on your life and how lucky you are to be in this beautiful world. Try to stray out of your “safety zone” a little and explore to see what else is out there for you. You may be amazed. Be ready to rest a bit more than usual as it seems you are running around all over the place and find it very hard to relax or even sleep at night. Calm down and deal with one issue at a time and finish it so it doesn’t weigh heavily on your mind. Then you will be ready to enjoy Thanksgiving with your family and friends no matter where the holiday conversations take you. You will be ready to be witty and funny and have an extraordinary time.

 

LIBRA – September 22 – October 21

You may also be thinking of taking care of paperwork and getting boring chores done and behind you before the festivities start at the end of the month. Organize a list of what you want to get done and then follow the list. Don’t be the typical air sign and start this and continue with that or finish this half way and start something else. Be consistent and follow your plan so that you will feel unburdened. This is such a lucky time for you, so it would be advantageous to get everything you wanted done finished, so you will have time for fun.   If you are having the family or friends to your house for Thanksgiving, prepare the list of chores and food shopping ahead of time and do it over several days so you will have time to rest and enjoy this time of the season. Elicit help from family members and be sure to ask dinner guests to bring small things like bottles of wine, bread, desserts or appetizers. This will save you some time and money as well as energy of doing everything yourself. If you are going to someone else’s house, then you should bring a token as mentioned above unless you are asked to bring something specific. Enjoy the holidays either way and make time for yourself.

 

SCORPIO – October 22 – November 20

Travel plans seem to be in your future, or at the very least you are trying to convince yourself whether or not you can afford to take a trip during this holiday season. Work seems to improve and you will finally feel as if you are a valued member of the team. This is a good way to make yourself feel more confident in many issues in which you have had concerns. You are strong and determined and those attributes will help you find your way through many decisions. Don’t take on too many extra projects and don’t pressure your staff/employees to do much more during this festive time of the year. You know their minds are on the holidays and not particularly concentrating on new projects and budgets. Be sure home life is running smoothly; disagreements may make you confused. You are trying to make everyone else happy and it seems as if no one is thinking of you. Discussions should be encouraged. Everyone can be a little more anxious or upset during all the preparations for the holidays. Setting up a relaxing atmosphere at home wouldn’t hurt!

 

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

There is a feeling of responsibility and dependability and then you feel as if you just want to have fun and be carefree. Work is going well although there is a lot of hard work ahead of you, but you can certainly handle it well. The issue is that you want to do a good job, but are getting tired of all the responsibility without getting any of the recognition for a job well done. You are just working too hard and not taking care of your health. Take breaks during lunch time so you can become refreshed and will be able to tackle the job ahead of you with new enthusiasm. You may be your own worst enemy at this time as well. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Do what you can and let other things go. Self-confidence issues may arise. It’s not you, but the overwhelming issues that are swarming around you. Again, take things one at time and finish them and don’t look at the big picture at first. Deal with smaller issues and everything will fall into place. Holidays plans may change, but it seems as if you are okay with them. Let things just flow the way they will and you will be fine. Keep smiling!

 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

There is so much going on in your mind. You have to figure out what is the most important issue and do something positive to resolve it. Many thoughts are leaning towards secrets and keeping things to yourself. It’s a great time for learning metaphysics or esoterica or just start reading a few good books in whichever field you are interested in. There are many self-help books to choose from at your local library, so why not look through them. You may find something that feels right to you. Of course, you don’t have that much time to read, so get a few audio books and put them on in the car so you kill two birds with one stone. You need to chill a bit and decide on which type of holiday you want. Do you want to be with all of your family or friends or only a few close family members or friends? Don’t do what you don’t want to do so don’t let yourself be talked into joining a holiday party that may not fit in with your mood or plans. You deserve some time alone to do whatever makes you happy or to be with the one person that means everything to you. It’s your decision, but whatever you decide, be sure you are making plans which are best for you and are not being pressured to do what others think you should.

 

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 18

Are you being your own worst enemy again? Things don’t seem to be going on the right track and you are helping others with their issues rather than face your own. You may feel a bit overwhelmed or depressed as the holidays progress, so get out of that frame of mind now so you can be happy and ready to share the fun season with your family and friends. You are making more decisions about yourself and what you want to do now. Getting your home ready for the holidays is a big task, but if you do a little each day or every weekend, it will flow nicely and you will get everything prepared and done the way you want to. Don’t let work issues get you upset. Everyone gets overwhelmed during the holidays, so I’m sure you can resolve these concerns before they get out of hand. You seem to come home from work exhausted every day so why not fit some time into your schedule for the gym (or doing exercises at home) or perhaps even make some time to meditate or just plain relax in front of the TV. You will be able to get all of your chores done so don’t worry about that and you will be able to enjoy the holidays with family/friends just like you hoped to.

 

PISCES – February 19 – March 19

Be careful about overspending during this holiday season. You feel you have enough saved to do the shopping you want; however, be sure you stay within your budget. You seem to be tempted to spend more than you have for those you love. The size or amount of the gift doesn’t really matter. You’ve heard it a million times, but it is the thought that counts. Also, be reasonable about spending for yourself as many of the things you are looking to purchase you really don’t need at this time. Buy what you need, not what you want and you will have more than enough for the holidays and into the New Year. Friends seem to get you somewhat upset by doing crazy things or leaving you out of plans, but you just can’t accept every invitation anyway, can you? You never know, a friend may even ask to borrow some money, so be prepared for that eventuality. Love life just isn’t as high on the list at this time, so if you are in a relationship/marriage, be sure to pay close attention to your loved one. If you are alone, enjoy the solitude because things will be hopping starting in the New Year and you won’t have additional time to rest or do whatever it is you want to.

August Horoscopes

 

 

Important dates this month: the 26th, Women’s Equality Day.

Colors and What They Mean

Black
Most teens wear black and now we know why they act the way they do! Black represents depression, upset, negativity, sadness, restrictions, limitations, obstacles, concerns, issues and feeling out of place or without a connection, despair, misery, hopelessness, dejection and melancholy. If you must wear this color or decorate your home with this color, you need to accent it with positive strong colors to balance this negative energy.

Blue
This soothing color helps you express emotions, empathy, sympathy, compassion and sensitivity. This is a nice calming color for an adult or child’s bedroom or any area of the home where you would like to bring tranquility. Blue also means clear sailing, harmony, peace and going into the right direction.

Gray
This color is not recommended for rooms (but may be used for a neutral rug or window treatments). Gray represents fears, doubts, worries, anxieties, being over whelmed, stressed, confused, lost, procrastinating tendencies and indecisiveness. You feel as if you are on a foggy road and cannot read the signs which would guide you to your destination, so you just keep on going and going until someone saves you or helps you find your path.

Green
This is a beautiful, peaceful and calming color. This color brings in prosperity and abundance, financial security, fertility and growth. It gets projects “growing” in the right direction; it is a nurturing and supportive color.

Pink
This is a refreshing and uplifting color which brings harmony, peace, joy, self-confidence, love, happiness, self- esteem, relationships, partnerships, friendship, prosperity and everything that will make you happy. It’s a celebration color.

Purple
This is the most spiritual color which has the highest vibrational rate of God/Goddess. Purple brings in esoteric interest and study, philosophy and honors all cultural, spiritual and religious traditions. Metaphysical or spiritual knowledge is brought to you through this color to use or pass along to others who could use the knowledge and insight from Above. Many psychics surround themselves with this color or see this color when they are meditating.

Red
What an assertive, dynamic, passionate and energetic color. Red usually motivates people who are procrastinators and helps them bring their never ending list of things to do to an end. This color brings vibrant energy, makes one self-motivated, active and lively. It gives them much motivation and drive to accomplish whatever they feel is important in their lives. Too much red can cause temper tantrums and anger. This is not a color that is recommended for a young child’s room. I do not recommend this color if you are looking for a restful or peaceful environment. This would be more for a living room, kitchen or rec room.

Tan/Browns
This includes beige, mauve, orange, and khaki as well. This is a very grounded, focused, stable and organized color. Tan, etc., brings a good foundation and is very secure. It helps you stay connected to Mother Earth, keeps your feet planted firmly on the ground and makes one very persistent. It also helps you prioritize your life in a very analytical way so that you can accomplish your dreams and ambitions in a positive manner.

White
White is considered the sucker color. It brings energy of being too good, caring, loving, kind, generous, honest, trust worthy and doing everything for others and in return, no one does anything for you. Eventually, you will become a doormat or have no life of your own since you are too busy helping others. Set some boundaries and limitations and stick with them. Stop falling for sad stories. Stop lending money which will never be returned. I tell my students never to wear white underclothes as your foundation for the day is to be a sucker and have everyone take advantage of you! Wear more beige! You will become more grounded and strong and would certainly never let anyone take advantage of you ever again!

Yellow
The powerful and alive color of the sun stimulates the mind. It activates intelligence, logic, analytical and methodical thoughts and is a great color for a library, place where children study and where common sense, logic, analytical and methodical skills are required.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Emotions are strong now and you seem so sensitive; however, everything is really not about you. No one is out to get you and just need to calm down and see the real issue in front of you. Your friends are there to back you up with any decision you make. But be sure to think things through carefully before making major decisions. Dealing with romantic partner issues seems like an excellent way to clear the path for a positive future together. Handling limitations, responsibilities and obligations work in your best interest since you are using your intelligence (and not emotions) to talk things through and compromise in many areas. Your friends will back you up with any decision you make. Be ready to be on the go as this seems to be a time where you are ready to leave the hum-drum past behind and are ready for new adventures and lots of fun. It would be nice to invite friends and family members to join you so you can get to know them better. You have carefully stayed away from those who could help you in so many ways, and it seems like time to accept their helpful hints and suggestions to get you back on the right track.

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

Dealing with budget issues and your career may be somewhat confusing and stressful, so this would be a great time to relax, make plans with family or friends and de-stress. Enough is enough. You are doing what you can to make the situations in these areas as positive as possible, but your worry keeps you rehashing old issues. You seem to be dealing with so many financial decisions. Should you spend or should you save? Should you move or stay where you are? Do you really want to take that risk? There seems to be so many unexpected expenditures in the near future that it would seem wise to hold off on unnecessary spending. Save, put money away for a rainy day and figure out your next move. Arguments, disagreements and difficult decisions make you a bit angry and confused over issues with your romantic partner. Friends and family would love to help, but you seem to be too secretive now and are not sharing your feelings easily as you don’t trust too many people in your life with your emotions. Getting others involved in your confusion will not help you make the much needed decisions for the best of all involved. You need to talk to someone about your concerns, perhaps even a professional to get an unbiased look at your situation and options.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 19

This is a wonderful time to get more training or formal education. You can also study about new and interesting traditions and philosophies. Even though you have many projects to start and complete, it does seem to be a wonderful time to take a few classes to expand your expertise in an area of interest and learn all that you can. Travel is indicated if you are willing and financially able; if not, you can have smaller day trips to local parks or events that are free or very reasonable. You need to organize the rest of the year and figure out in which direction you should go. Expanding your business is always a good idea. There seems to be a contradiction of purpose which forces you to swing back and forth from the work you are trying to pursue to your personal growth; you are not exactly sure how to balance these energies. My advice is to give it “your all” at in your personal life and at work. Yes, we do get tired, but if you schedule theater, movies, dinners, lectures, or special event, etc., to fit into your busy life with your closest friends and family, (or a specific date night with your romantic partner), you will start to mellow out and things will become much easier for you to handle. You will look forward to this relaxing time. Be a little more tolerant of your significant other or business partners. You seem to be uptight or annoyed about many things and you wouldn’t want to take out your frustration on those closest to you.

CANCER – June 20 – July 21

Many changes are coming your way and you should be prepared to make many good choices. See whichever opportunities make the most common sense and check them out. As long as they seem appropriate, take them as you will be surprised at how fast you will be on the right road to a prosperous future while attracting more new energy and opportunities. Your personal magnetism attracts many special people into your life which may be long term relationships of both friends and partners. Relationships improve, however, be careful not to spend too much time at work and spend quality time with those important to you. You seem to have things under control now and are planning your future with optimism and hopefulness. Your finances seem to continue to be prosperous as you may get involved in other business ventures (including part time or a home based business) and you seem to be on the right track. Everything you touch now turns to gold, so go for it! You are being blessed to expand and grow in many positive directions. Even though you may start to tackle things that seem unorthodox or unconventional, be persistent and get through the tasks without hesitation. Procrastination will make things worse! Many new opportunities will be given to you so if you know what you want, it will be easier to grab the opportunity once it is presented to you.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

Time to rise and shine since you have so much to accomplish. You may be planning to do it all later since the nice weather is upon us. Do one or two things daily so at the end of the week or month, you can see that you have accomplished much and will not feel guilty about taking off a day or two to relax and have fun. You may be thinking in an exceptionally creative or innovative mode now and may be bringing that energy to your romantic life, so just enjoy. There is so much positive energy around you to help you get out, explore, move on, have fun and be in the moment, especially if there are summer time activities around you that you wish to participate in. Don’t over think things now as everything will work out for the best in a very short period of time. Long distance travel seems favored, so why not take a long needed vacation. Even though there may be some delays or paper related mix-ups, it does seem to bring you the fun and relaxation you need. It is important for you to get out of the house to have fun with your friends and to mingle with those who are in your business, charities and peer associations or groups. You have much energy around you, but you seem to need a cosmic kick in the pants to get moving in the right direction.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

Friends are important now, so make sure you know who your true friends are. One of the lessons you should learn now is that friends will give you reciprocal energy and help you whenever you need assistance rather than you always be the one to help others. Weeding out those who exhaust you would be in your best interest. Many decisions need to be made, so think about them carefully before making those important decisions. Don’t make snap decisions, but once you’ve decided on a course of action, stay with your plan. Changes in work also seem to be imminent. Have you decided which road or path you will take? This seems like a good time to talk things over at work and home with those important to you so that you are clearly understood. Your messages just do not seem to be getting through properly. Money may be of concern now, however, you seem to be blessed and will be able to do well once you set your mind on your goals and objectives. You seem very sensitive and are confused about your romantic relationship. You may want to try to have a meaningful communication with your romantic significant to deal with issues you may have. Home life may seem somewhat unstable, so do whatever you can to make it secure again. If changes are inevitable, at least you can calmly discuss things and decide what is in both of your best interest before reacting to circumstances around you without a plan.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 21

Your decisiveness will be challenged. Even though you do not have an easy time making decisions, it is imperative that you stop procrastinating and make important decisions about your life and those close to you. Be assertive, take the risk and move forward. Staying in a procrastination energy field will only attract more negativity and make you feel as if you don’t have any options left. Much activity seems to push you into many directions that you never thought possible. If you truly do not want to help others at this time, why are you doing it? This seems to be a good time for you to take care of yourself, your family and your desires and not think about anyone else who wants you to change. Be wary of deception in a relationship and make sure you can verify whatever he or she is telling you, so that you won’t be hurt in the future. You are just too trusting of everyone, but you must remember that not everyone is as honest and truthful as you, so you would be best not to take everyone at their word without question. Foreign travel, higher education or lectures and classes seem to help you grow in so many ways. You are a sponge for information now so should use the energy around you to make the most of it. Thinking in a confused, depressed or anxious manner will not get you the results you want or need, so use your intelligence and logic to deal with those who play on your emotions or want you to do things his or her way. Be strong and stand up for yourself.

SCORPIO – October 22 – November 20

Finances may be strained or you are saving for an object or project that is very important to you. Nevertheless, you should budget your money carefully and only spend what you deem appropriate for the things you want. Being very determined and persistent will help you get what you want, but you really have to be serious about your wishes. So many issues seem to be coming up around your financial security and it may seem overwhelming. There seems to be more money coming in to your future; however, you may have to decide what to do with it, whom to repay, or how to invest it to make it grow properly. This is a time to chill as you have been handling much too many responsibilities lately and would just like everyone to leave you alone but that is not going to happen. Why not go to a movie or sporting event with your significant other or close friend? Make time for yourself as this will be the only thing that will help you attain your optimistic attitude once again. Responsibilities seem to play an important role with close friends and family members. Talk things over, discuss alternatives and then make your decisions about your next step. Your helping attitude is a wonderful gift to others, but now it would be good for you to give the gift of fun, relaxation, and happiness to yourself.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

Family issues keep you in a constant state of flux. You have so many good intentions and plans that may be thwarted on some level. You seem to have to take care of many responsibilities and obligations, but once you handle these situations now, you will have more time to concentrate on your leisure time activities and fun. Major changes seem to be on the horizon for you in your personal, business, partnership and career areas, all pivotal areas of life. It would be extremely important to mend fences or let things go and move on; finally, do whatever it is you feel you’ve always wanted to do. This is risky; however, it seems as if you want a total change of your surroundings and people in your life. Some areas of change could be your job, moving from your comfortable home to a new location, seeking new partners (or if not married, finally find a marriage partner) and changing your appearance in some fashion. Friends will help you through the rough spots and be available to chat with you about your concerns; they are ready to help you, so allow them to assist you as you have helped them so many times in the past. This would be a great time to use your tactfulness as you may be tempted to say exactly what you mean and then you’ll be in trouble, AGAIN.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Home life and family can be challenging and there is just so much going on that it makes you a bit confused about your next steps. Should you let others handle their issues or should you get involved? That’s a good question. Does it make sense for you to try to handle more responsibilities or do you feel that others should take the responsibility for their action? Home and business life needs more balance. Work should be kept at the office (or wherever you are employed) and when you come home, that time belongs to your significant other and family. More quality time seems necessary with those you love. They will appreciate your effort and try to be more understanding when you once again become the workaholic they are so used to having in their lives. Getting ahead is important to you, but if you delegate some of your work, you will find the time you need to make everyone happy. Don’t be too tight with your money as you will have it when you need it and you may deprive someone close to you of a simple pleasure that a small amount of money could bring them. Have fun and lighten up! I know you have tons of hard work ahead of you, but if you bring more balance in to your home life and career, things seem to go in a much stronger direction.

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 18

Career choices and home life seem to be at odds again. You have too much to do in both areas of life and your health seems to be suffering. A bit more rest and relaxation will do wonders for your stamina and general overall health. Thinking in new creative ways help you have a flair for redecorating your home or landscaping your property. You want to surround yourself with peaceful and beautiful things and flowers seem to be the answer for now. Why not try a small water fountain in your home or yard where you can relax and/or meditate to the melodious sounds of the new addition to your home or yard. You need to reconnect to spirit or get back to a place where you feel unstressed and comfortable with your life the way it is. Romantic complications or confusion still worry you. You are trying to find a happy medium between balancing your life with work and family. You also seem to want to do things on your own; however, there just isn’t enough time. Make time for yourself. Your energy level is drained and you seem to be handling all of the worries, doubts, fears and concerns of not only yourself, but of everyone else who can grab a minute of your time. You need some down time away from everyone else’s problems; you need time to unwind and take care of your own life and the issues that are on your mind.

PISCES – February 19 – March 19

Love life can make you crazy if you let it, but if you use your intellect and common sense you will be able to handle anything that comes your way. Be very clear about your intent and let people know that you want to resolve any unfinished business quickly. Many changes seem to follow you around and you’re not quite sure what to do. Relationships do not seem to make any sense and you feel as if something has to change. Your actions and deeds do not reflect what you really feel inside your heart and you seem to struggle to understand what it is that you want out of life. Its fun to be with family and friends at times, but you must try to figure out what would make you really happy. Finances seem to be one area of life that will be improving so keep saving for that special purchase as your money grows. A change in career or direction seems likely as if work is not what it used to be. Don’t make rash decisions as if you do not weigh the consequences of your decisions, you may be disappointed in the results. Emotions seem fragile at this time, so try to deal with issues on a more analytical level so that you won’t be easily hurt.

July Horoscopes

 

 Important Dates: U. S. Independence Day.

For most of us, Fourth of July is a wonderful time for watching a variety of fireworks, having family barbecues and just kicking back to relax. It’s one of the true long weekends of the summer and keeps us focused on fun, vacations and taking care of the yard work.

History Information worth repeating:

The Declaration of Independence

We celebrate American Independence Day on the Fourth of July every year. We think of July 4, 1776, as a day that represents the Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation.

But July 4, 1776 wasn’t the day that the Continental Congress decided to declare independence; they did that on July 2, 1776.

It wasn’t the day we started the American Revolution either (that had happened back in April 1775). And it wasn’t the day Thomas Jefferson wrote the first draft of the Declaration of Independence (that was in June 1776). Or the date on which the Declaration was delivered to Great Britain (that didn’t happen until November 1776). Or the date it was signed (that was August 2, 1776).

So what did happen on July 4, 1776?

The Continental Congress approved the final wording of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. They’d been working on it for a couple of days after the draft was submitted on July 2nd and finally agreed on all of the edits and changes.

July 4, 1776, became the date that was included on the Declaration of Independence, and the fancy handwritten copy that was signed in August (the copy now displayed at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.) It’s also the date that was printed on the Dunlap Broadsides, the original printed copies of the Declaration that were circulated throughout the new nation. So when people thought of the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776 was the date they remembered.

In contrast, we celebrate Constitution Day on September 17th of each year, the anniversary of the date the Constitution was signed, not the anniversary of the date it was approved. If we’d followed this same approach for the Declaration of Independence we’d being celebrating Independence Day on August 2nd of each year, the day the Declaration of Independence was signed!

How did the Fourth of July become a national holiday?

For the first 15 or 20 years after the Declaration was written, people didn’t celebrate it much on any date. It was too new and too much else was happening in the young nation. By the 1790s, a time of bitter partisan conflicts, the Declaration had become controversial. One party, the Democratic-Republicans, admired Jefferson and the Declaration. But the other party, the Federalists, thought the Declaration was too French and too anti-British, which went against their current policies.

By 1817, John Adams complained in a letter that America seemed uninterested in its past. But that would soon change.

After the War of 1812, the Federalist party began to come apart and the new parties of the 1820s and 1830s all considered themselves inheritors of Jefferson and the Democratic-Republicans. Printed copies of the Declaration began to circulate again, all with the date July 4, 1776, listed at the top. The deaths of Thomas Jefferson and John Adams on July 4, 1826, may even have helped to promote the idea of July 4 as an important date to be celebrated.

Celebrations of the Fourth of July became more common as the years went on and in 1870, almost a hundred years after the Declaration was written, Congress first declared July 4 to be a national holiday as part of a bill to officially recognize several holidays, including Christmas. Further legislation about national holidays, including July 4, was passed in 1939 and 1941.*

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

There is excitement, fun and activity in your life now. You will do many of the things that you haven’t had time to do before. If you don’t feel this is the case, get out there and join some clubs or groups that have similar interests or hobbies as your own. Women in your life will be your constant companions and you will reconnect with those who have become distant throughout the years. You will also make a radical change in your appearance, perhaps your hair color, makeup, clothes and you will look fabulous. Many people will ask you why you look so much younger. Don’t be afraid to experiment and see which look is best for you. You will also have some issues with your romantic partner which can be easily worked out if you talk things through. Feeling a bit restricted, you may rebel or try to at least get your point of view across. Don’t do anything silly because there is a lot of love around you; maybe better communication would be a good start.

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

It would be really good if you could stop worrying over everything. Worry just makes more negativity and depression hit you harder and you don’t deserve that. It’s time to take control of your life and make the future you actually want. Money is your focus now as you try to get on track with your finances or save for that large purchase that you have been hoping for. Home life seems like fun and you will have much luck redecorating, painting, fixing up, and adding new accessories to your home. It will give you such a mental lift. Children and home life in general will go in a much better direction if you are not too stubborn to change a few of your ways. Just try to go with the flow. Seeing someone else’s point of view is very important to helping you understand where they are coming from. Be patient at work. Things will work out if you give them a chance.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 19

If you are looking for love, it may start to come this month and the months following. Think about who you want to be a partner with all of his/her attributes, characteristics and traits. Be sure to meditate on him/her and also write a detailed wish list of everything you want your new partner to be. Once it is placed in the sacred hands of the universe, it will work miracles for you. If you are in a relationship, add some spice to your days and nights. Things may get boring sometimes and it is up to you to make it fun again. You may want to be cognizant of your words. Do not let your mouth run wild before your brain kicks in. Disagreements, short distance travel and communication can be tricky, so be sure you plan ahead; try to be much more cautious about driving or flying. Do not take any risks as this can be an accident prone time if you are not paying attention to the details. Also, this is a good time to see the big picture and let the petty issues and concerns be acknowledged and dealt with when you have the time. Siblings and neighbors can be a joy to you. Have a BBQ or get together. So many wonderful new friendships will be forming, so try not to trust everyone immediately. Once you feel they are trustworthy, you can talk to them more openly.

CANCER – June 20 – July 21

Relationships with your mother and/or women in your life will improve. You have a better connection and understanding of the things that went on when you were young. Home life is getting easier, better and much more positive so enjoy life and get out and do the things you’ve wanted to do. Tending your garden or practicing your hobby will be a lovely way to escape from life’s pressures. You will always feel that something is holding you back from accomplishing your goals, but in reality, your procrastination and lack of making positive decisions and commitments will keep you from getting the happiness you deserve.   Everyone is on your side, so don’t let them down – make a decision! Be the one who changes things for the positive now. Everyone sees you are a very sensitive and laid back kind of person. Now is the time to prove them wrong. Be assertive, be persistent and adamant when you think it will help your cause. Show everyone how wrong they have been about you.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

Your enthusiasm for a job well done will win you the admiration and approval of those around you, especially in the work place. Be sure to balance home life and your career as things seem to be a bit one sided at the moment. A lot of activity and change is around you, so go for it. If it’s something you would like to do or try, do it now before you change your mind. Your emotions seem to be all over the places. You are not thinking clearly or do not have the concentration to keep your goals and schedules on track. Set boundaries and limitations so that others don’t continue to drain your energy and generous nature. Hard work and responsibility will keep you structured and organized which will help you accomplish great things.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

With all the enthusiasm you feel to change yourself for the better, this is a good month to start a diet, become a vegetarian or improve your eating habits. A bit of exercise will take you a long way to reaching your goal weight. Take long walks, park far away from the store (so you can walk a little bit more) or jog with friends or better yet, take the dogs out for a walk. This is a wonderful time to change many things that have been bothering for some time. It’s a time to think quietly, perhaps meditate or pray and get your priorities straight. Now is a great time to get your life in order and start making positive goals for your future. Communicate with your personal or business partner – something has to change, but you’re not quite sure what it is. You may feel somewhat bored or unappreciated, but things are looking up for a sunny relationship by year end. Always ask questions until you are satisfied with the answers.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 21

This is a wonderful time where you can transform yourself from the negative circumstances that surround you to the positive and encouraging energy that is within reach. You are too sensitive and please take the time to make the decision that makes sense for you so you can move on in a very positive way. Many are thinking of changing personal or business partnerships. Things seem out of control and crazy, emotional and not the same. Communicate with one another. You need some time to think about the future with confidence and attract positive energy all around you by being positive yourself. You may be upset or emotional throughout the month, but the fact is you know what needs to be done. Changes are coming into your life so be prepared to go with the flow. Remember, once you make a decision, stay strong and do not change it. If you do, it will be the wrong decision.

SCORPIO – October 22 – November 20

Too many responsibilities and obligations make you feel as if you have a big weight on your shoulders and you don’t know where to start. Take one issue at a time and deal with it fully so you can continue with the next one and the next until all of your concerns and issues are completed. Once you complete all of this negative energy around you, you will be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Home life is interesting – some are moving, others are changing their homes and the bad blood that has kept you away from relatives in the past is moving away from you. Reach out to your family and close friends any time you wish to feel safe, secure, stable and organized. Children and love life seem very positive around you. They are being given many opportunities that you have to grab or it will pass you by.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

So many positive changes are coming your way. There could be a change in your job or responsibilities, in your appearance, in a life style or just feeling emotionally free! Travel plans seem to go smoothly. However, don’t let unsettling or strange coincidences keep you from taking that vacation that you’ve always wanted and deserve. If you can’t afford that big vacation, take smaller ones that are closer to home – long weekends with your family or partner, even if it’s just down to the shore, will help you relax and may rekindle the love you have for your spouse, partner or family. You’ll still have the same fun. You are starting to believe in different ways, rituals, philosophies or religions. You may take classes, go to lectures, or training in some new area of interest and you will love it. New changes are always exciting and these will definitely be fun, exhilarating and needed.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Broad new changes are coming your way in many areas. Things in your life that are no longer needed will start being let go of, regenerated, transformed and improved upon. Career is very important now, so be sure that you work diligently and confidently in reaching all of your goals for your career. If you are in your own home based business, this is especially important for you now. Emotionally, you are ready for a change although you are not quite sure how to do it. Creativity, artistic ability or a hobby will be a great pastime to take your mind off of your problems, worries, fears and doubts. Find some joy in your life. You take things too seriously and it’s time to chill a little bit. Even if things do get blown out of proportion, your cool head will keep things on an even keel. Enjoy the warm weather.

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 18

Be aware of those around you. Not everyone is as honest and helpful as you and if you are not prepared for some sneaky tactics, you may feel betrayed or let down. Do your homework if plans are presented to you and someone needs your opinion. If this is a project for yourself, make sure you take the time to make sure it is all good so you will have no regrets in the future. This is a great time to start dating (if you are single) or to rekindle your romance by having date nights (without the kids). You would be surprised at how fast you could remember all the good times. Seeing the love you have for each other is a wonderful thing so nurture it and let it take flight! Being grateful for all of your blessings now will bring bigger and better opportunities and positive results in the future.

PISCES – February 19 – March 19

Big changes are coming your way so prepare for them. Some of them you are planning and some others may take you by surprise, but all in all, these are outstanding opportunities for your future. So many things are going on behind the scenes so just ask questions to find out the truth. Do not take anything for granted. Studying spirituality, metaphysics or esoteric teachings will be positive steps forward on your spiritual journey. If you have any need to hospital tests or procedures, this indicated that the visit will be short and you will be out of there as soon as before you know it. Your mind is playing your past over and over again and it could be making you feel maudlin or stressed. Look towards the future with confidence and passion since there is so much wonderful energy out there for you, and once you avail yourself to it, anything is possible.

June Horoscopes

Important Dates: June 7, Ramadan begins, 14th is Flag Day and the 20th brings the Summer Solstice.

Signing Contracts Before Reincarnation

Traditionally, I had been exposed to and taught the belief system that one makes a contract with God before being reincarnated into a new life. This contract is supposed to contain all of the lessons you will deal with and learn from in your new incarnation. It includes what type of family you will have, who you will be in the family (mother, father, child), if you will have a happy or difficult childhood, a positive or negative marriage (if indeed you are to marry at all in your new life), and if you will be able to have a good education or not. It also covers if you will have a very successful and wealthy life in which you could be generous to others or not; or if you could be stuck in a poor existence where you may have to rely on others for help just to get by. These various scenarios afford you the opportunity to grow from the experiences. Many of the common experiences we learn from are: generosity, honesty, love, happiness, compassion, mercy, and being non-judgmental. The opposite of course would be: anger, dominance, envy, ego, dishonesty, being judgmental and perhaps someone who always thinks they are right all of the time.

I have talked with colleagues and friends about this topic in great length throughout the years as I think that if I had the gift of working for a lawyer for twenty years in another lifetime, as I did in this one, I don’t think I would have ever agreed to such a contract for this lifetime. I have been on a journey of learning since I can remember, but there must be a time during a one’s lifetime when you can say with certainty that you learned your lessons and want to experience some of the benefits of that knowledge. Apparently I have not come to that point in my life yet as I am still being put to the test almost every day.

So the question is, “Would we choose a difficult life?” Most respond, “We are spiritual beings and would know which lessons we need to learn during a particular lifetime. We would put ourselves in those situations where we would learn the most from those types of experiences.” That is a neatly rehearsed and packaged answer; however, would we really agree to all of the hardships that we endure lifetime after lifetime? Would you agree to lose a child? Would you agree to go through the anguish of divorce? Losing very important relationships in your lifetime that really causes you heartache and pain? Would you agree to never marry in a lifetime and handle all of life’s problems alone? Would you really choose to be poor or go without a job for years until your pride, dignity and self-esteem were exhausted? Would you agree to go through bankruptcy or lose your home and move to a very small apartment where your family could hardly even move without bumping into someone or something? Would you really agree to being disabled or crippled so that you could learn some sort of important lesson? In my opinion, I don’t believe that this is a realistic outlook to learning lessons and; therefore, throughout the years my viewpoint about Contracts with God have drastically changed.

As luck would have it, I was guided to attend a lecture given by Tony Frishichella. I was relieved and intrigued to learn that someone else thought as I did. He affirmed that he did not believe in contracts and thought that reincarnation into the third dimensional realm was random. That is something I could understand and believe. Why wouldn’t people choose to be beautiful, rich, famous, and successful as opposed to being plain, disabled, poor, unknown and unsuccessful? Why would you choose a life of struggle and discontentment rather than a very fulfilling life where everything you have ever wanted came easily to you? His sentiments exactly mirrored mine.

I have learned that whatever you feel you should be doing in this lifetime is what you are supposed to be doing, even though this changes throughout various stages of life. People come and go in your lifetime and when you no longer learn lessons from a partner or friend, you must move on to new relationships. Sometimes you must be the strong one and just let go of the familiar or safe relationship. There are plenty of other experiences awaiting you after each stage of life.

Of course, there is also a time to be alone, to meditate, to learn, to experience life on your own and to concentrate on one’s future. You may go through a period when you no longer want to be part of a group or have many people around you at all and take comfort in sharing your life with a pet or getting engrossed in a hobby. Perhaps you only want to be surrounded with trusted family members where you feel safe and secure. Sometimes you outgrow organizations and jobs and must look for new experiences in all areas of life. The cycle continues and changes throughout the years you have upon this Earth until the day you are left with the option – sign the contract or not for your next lifetime.

Did you sign a contract to come back to Earth in this incarnation? We’ll never know until we are standing in front of God with a contract in one hand and a pen in the other; then it will be up to us to sign the contract or live a random life in which all the lessons presented to us will still be valuable experiences even though they were not planned or agreed to ahead of time.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

It’s time for you to start packing and venture out into the world. Travel will make you feel refreshed and will renew your spirit. You need to have an adventure! You feel up and down during the month and have lots to do but you seem to procrastinate and just want to relax. This is a good thing for your health, but not so good for your pocketbook. Be adamant, strong and determined in accomplishing your goals. Metaphysical pursuits and studies will be well received now since you are ready for more answers and want to see which steps you need to take to continue on your journey here in the third dimensional plane. Philosophies and religion may be of interest at this time, but at the very least, you are getting into many different types of hobbies because you have a thirst for knowledge. Things may seem a bit out of the ordinary at times, but this could be a good thing to pique your interest and get you moving in a better direction. Emotionally, you are feeling better about yourself and so many things in your life, so just keep up the good work and start doing what makes you feel good for a change without worrying about anyone else.

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19                                                                                

You are dealing with many issues regarding education or your future career. Thinking in a very logical and analytical manner now will help you in making some very important decisions about your future. Emotions cannot be involved in these decisions. Relationships are on an even keel. You can talk to your partner now about important things that may have been of concern or of interest to you. You need to include your partner in some of your life, especially where friends are concerned. Have a game night, go to a movie, have a date night (or double date) but do something fun and together so things will fall into place easier when you two are alone. Your goals may have taken a slight turn away from what you truly wanted, so get back on track and reach for the stars. This is a wonderful time to accomplish many things you may have thought impossible in the past.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 19

Career and home life seem to be keeping you on your toes, but also makes you tired, exhausted and stressed. You have too much to do and little time to accomplish your goals and you are getting a big discouraged and disorganized. You basically need to start from scratch and re-examine what the most important things in your life are at the moment. Perhaps a short getaway or vacation is in order because you really need to relax and chill out. Your energy level is all over the place and you feel as if you can’t relax even when you are sleeping – there are always those lists you need to remember and things you have to do for others! There is a lot of grounding issues that have to be done on a personal level. Are you looking for a home based business so you can stay around your home and family more? Whatever you do, you will start to improve your business and finally feel as if you have made positive decisions about your future. You need a bit of clarity so that you know that you are going in the right direction.

CANCER – June 20 – July 21

Friends are a great resource now, so go out and have fun. However, it seems as if you are also gaining many new friends with the new hobbies or interests you have. You go through periods of wanting to stay home to attend to some of your responsibilities, but quickly decide they can wait and you want to go out to have some excitement. This is also a time when you will be very conscious of how you look and will want to improve yourself in many ways. You may go on a diet with friends, go to the gym more or even take walks around your neighborhood, perhaps to walk the dog and kill two birds with one stone. Cancerians are also trying to find the right romantic partner or trying to spice up their romantic life – so a healthy diet, exercise and date nights sound like a good way of bringing the magic back into a relationship. Handling financial responsibilities quickly will save you some headaches later. Don’t put things off that can easily be done today.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

There seems to be lots of activity around you and you want to have a good time, enjoy the sun and make plans with loved ones and friends. Your mental attitude is very positive right now and you feel as if you can do anything and you want to try everything. There will be many positive opportunities at work, so give even obscure opportunities a chance to see if there is long term potential in them. Creativity is high, artistic abilities should be nourished and it would be terrific if you could reign in some of your many projects to just a few so that they could be accomplished in a timely manner. You do spread yourself too thinly and you are still helping everyone with their issues and problems. Learn how to put up barriers/boundaries so that you are not the only one who has to give advice to all of your friends. Be unavailable at times or suggest that you call them back on another day so that you have the free time you need to unwind and relax with your family or friends. Watch that your temper stays in check since you may be blurting out things that will hurt someone’s feelings which you just can’t take back. All in all, your emotions are strong, steady and flourishing.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

Many positive changes are coming your way so try to go with the flow instead of fighting them. This is a time when you are planning your things to do list and you want to accomplish everything in true Virgo fashion. That means that you want it to be logical, orderly, have it done correctly and basically “perfect!” Life may not give you that luxury at this time, but many of your plans will come out better than you had hoped since you have been working so hard to make projects and goals in your life a reality. Be careful about working too hard and not getting the proper rest since you are set in the “do it all now” mode. You handle responsibilities well and are trying very hard to budget the funds you do have for the future. Virgoans are very conscious of their financial limitations now, but things will shortly improve.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 21

Money issues are worrisome at times, but you need to organize, prioritize and get your financial affairs in order so that things will run more smoothly throughout the rest of the year. Buy what you need and not what you want at this time. This may be a time where you will feel as if you are on an emotional rollercoaster, so be strong and determined and know that this is just a feeling which will quickly pass. It’s a time of many decisions and choices. However, you need to decide one way or the other or the opportunities will pass you by. Career seems to be going well and if you are in the market for a career change, this is a very good time for you to take the opportunity for a new challenge in life. This would also be a very good time to voice your opinion or concern in a clear manner since many may not understand your viewpoint or perspective. You want to try new things, see new places and meet new people – you are in a “new adventure” mode, so just go out and have some fun.

SCORPIO – October 22 – November 20

Communication is the key to happiness and satisfaction this month. Say what you mean, but don’t think that others can read your mind about how you are feeling about certain things. You must discuss any concerns or issues with those you love so that you are all on the same page and can understand the entire situation. Any hurt feelings need to be addressed or they will develop into much more serious issues. You may feel as if you should do more things on your own or only with one other person and that’s okay. Scorpions need to align themselves, get more grounded and stable. They are looking for clarity in their lives and direction in their spiritual beliefs. Some additional new philosophies or esoteric topics may also be of interest. Lectures and seminars or self-help books will be of great interest. Learn a foreign language, read a book you never thought you would have an interest in or see a new genre movie. Get those creative juices flowing in the right direction so you can relax your mind, repress your fears and have a really happy month with all of your friends and family.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

Getting your home projects in order would be in your best interest instead of constantly doing a million other things that really aren’t helping you accomplish your goals and dreams. Also, it would be a good time to coordinate your projects with a spouse or loved one. Does anyone know what you are planning to do or when you are planning to do it? Home and career seem at odds for a while until you figure out which part of your life is more important. You may feel uneasy at times because you have so many obligations and responsibilities; however, you want to go out and have fun – travel, golf, shop, or going out catching up with friends at a luncheon or dinner. Things do get blown out of proportion easily, so keep on your toes to handle whatever you feel is out of your control. Limiting your issues or projects would certainly help you organize your life, but you do tend to want to do everything at once! Updating wills, important papers, insurance policies, etc., would be a helpful thing to do for all involved.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Relationships get a bit more intense this month as you feel closer to those you love and want to express that love as best as you can. Good luck is following you around and waiting for the right moment to help you handle all of your relationships and issues that need to be resolved and not just personal ones. There may be big changes coming your way so be prepared to take a risk or two to get the big prize. Many people are around you who will help you get more exposure, or more business in some way. Love life can be tricky now, so be clear about what you expect in this relationship so that you are both on the same wavelength. Again, no one can know what you want unless you tell him/her. Some tiffs with friends may temporarily upset you, but perhaps you no longer need all of your friends. Which ones help you and which ones always need your help? Try to keep those who give you back some type of reciprocal energy so that you are not the one who is always on the giving end.

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 18

You are getting into the right frame of mind after handling a lot of important issues which have been bothering you over the last few months. Make schedules and stick to them. Help others who need a helping hand, but watch out that all of your energy is not zapped without you knowing it. Circumstances may still be a bit confusing and emotions run rampant when you feel sorry for yourself. You just don’t know which end is up and are very confused or disillusioned about a particular person or situation. Don’t give up. Things are getting better every day. Health issues need to be watched or addressed since there may be smaller issues that you are ignoring that may turn into something more important down the road. Take care of yourself. Eat properly. Rest. Have friends to your home or go out and talk to those you trust. How many times have you listened to their woes? It’s your turn. Don’t let procrastination or indecision keep you in a depressed state of mind. Any positive step you take towards anything in your life will bring you into a more positive energy field and then all the good opportunities will start to attach to you.

PISCES – February 19 – March 19

Money is on your mind, like many others, but you really need to figure out a budget and plan to stick to it. Money is running through your fingers like water and it is going out of your home faster than you are making it. Do not get into the habit of using credit cards to pay for your necessities and frills or you will get into a hole quicker than you thought. If you are spending joint monies, be careful to keep a record of all expenditures so that you can prove where the money had gone. Career issues should be straightened out before going in the wrong direction and be careful with whom you trust at work this month. There is someone around who may be a bit jealous or envious of you and/or your abilities that may not be happy that you are working with him/her. Make a conscious effort to be nice to everyone so that there are no problems. Keep a slow and steady pace towards success. Even if things take longer than you had planned to fall into place, it still is in the right time frame, so relax and enjoy the month. _________________________________________________________________________________________

Important Dates: May 1 is May Day, 5th is Ascension Day and Cinco de Mayo and the 30th is Memorial Day.

Moving and Decluttering

If anyone would have told me that I had so much unneeded stuff in my home of 36 years, I would have argued with them.  But I can assure you, I have found things that I didn’t even remember purchasing or worse yet, what they actually were!

Selling one’s home is a God awful experience and finding somewhere else to live is worse.  Cleaning your house for photographs that will go on the web is a riot and realizing that my attic is still half full of stuff after I got rid of so much by donating it to church thrift stores, senior centers, friends, neighbors and family.  Every time someone comes over to help me clean, they go home with a box or two of stuff with my blessings.  When does stuff get to be too much stuff?  I find that it is too much stuff if you can’t organize it or give it away in a few tries.  I had the United War Vets come to take things away as well as the Lupus Foundation.  Now I have to go through my clothes again. I found socks that did not have a partner for years, but I was hopeful and kept them.  I’ve also been giving bags and bags of clothes to the local pickup receptacles at local stores. I’ve given some outdoor furniture away to neighbors before the move and now some want to lay claim on some of my chimes!  Neighbors are asking why I didn’t ask them to take the love seat instead of another neighbor.  I think I started an insurrection on my street inspired by an act of kindness.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

This is a crazy time of the year for you.  So much is going on and you don’t have time to do everything.  Life is running you ragged, but you keep trying.  Organize your projects and chores, focus on what is important and let the other small stuff go.  This is a time where you should deal with priorities in your life and also give yourself the time you need to refresh, relax and rejuvenate.  You must think clearly about all decisions and make sure that the outcome is very logical and not an emotional decision.  Most emotional decisions this month will be wrong, so use logic, intelligence and methodical thought in all that you do and you will be happy with the result.

’TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

There are lots of life changes coming your way.  Perhaps a move, change in partner or job and a lot of little things that will certainly make you feel uncomfortable, as all Taureans do not like change.  However, change will put you in a much better place than you are now.  You will be much more stable and emotionally secure and will be able to concentrate better than you have in a long time.  Romance needs to be nurtured along as you may hit some rough spots in the road. You may be too emotional now so try very hard to get past the hurt that have left you feeling depressed or sad and look at all the good things in your life.  Your future is bright and change is needed now to get you to those new positive beginnings.

“GEMINI – May 20 – June 19

Friends, groups and associations are highlighted this month.  Get rid of those who are fair weather friends or who do not want your friendship any longer.  So many new and positive relationships will come to you shortly.  Be ready to join new groups of personal interest and you may even have time to volunteer or join other associations that share your interests.  This is a transformative time to make you understand that not all people who call you friend actually is a friend.  Be open to moving on and expanding your circle.  Love relationships seem difficult so make logical decisions about them and leave your heart out of the equation.

CANCER – June 20 – July 21

There will be a lot of mental stimulation this month.  New ideas and creative endeavors come to mind.  Act upon them.  Give yourself the relaxation you need to feel as if you can breathe without worrying about deadlines and limits.  This is an expansive time for you mentally and physically, so go out and do whatever it is you’ve wanted to do for a long time and get it done!  This is a lovely period for you to be creative or get into the spiritual world on whichever level you wish.  You should go to your healthcare practitioner and get a physical or checkup.  If you have had one recently, then there is no problem.  However, there is much luck in your chart protecting you so you will be blessed and be fine.

•LEO – July 22 – August 21

New beginnings start to form and you are very happy about all the possibilities before you.  Of course, with new beginnings come some old endings to things that have been lingering around. So now, the universe is pushing many of these changes upon you which will get you onto the proper path for enlightenment and a peaceful and positive life.  You need to make many decisions for yourself.  So many questions, but you know that things will be going more smoothly for you.  You can feel it. Romance seems very possible if you want it and your status in life improves.  You get more respect on the job and in your life in general. 

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

Good luck is following you around and you know it.  Decisions are being made and are turning out extremely positive although you still worry that you’ve made the wrong decision.  This is a very lucky time for you so don’t spoil it by putting any negativity out there by worrying about things you can’t control.  There may be some issues with what you want to spend your money on so make sure there is a good reason that you need to buy something.  Just don’t buy your “wants” now as you need to save for a rainy day, just like the rest of us.  Romance may be a bit tricky, so be kind and try to keep your critical nature in check.  Compromising is the key now.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 21

Communication is a must for you this month.  Talk to those who you haven’t had time for and correct any misunderstandings, especially with family.  Creativity is very much on your mind and you would be so good at it now.  Get out your unused, rusty ideas and get moving in a positive direction!  Getting together with family is important now.  Bonds need to be more secure and you are the one who can be the mediator in the family.  You can do anything you put your mind to.  Unexpected travel may be just ahead.  This is the time for you to explore the world and/or get more knowledge whether from formal education or lectures, seminars, or classes. 

˜SCORPIO – October 22 – November 20

Home life is active this month, so whatever is going on in your home life should be dealt with or completed so that there will no longer be an issue.  Make sure everyone is at peace within the home and do be sure that everyone feels comfortable.  Make changes, redecorate, rearrange furniture or perhaps even paint the walls a new interesting color so that the energy is shifted from the stale winter into the new season.  Once this is done, you will feel a thousand times lighter.  Interesting things are going on in the workplace as well.  Watch your step. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

Romance may not be as wonderful as you had hoped.  There are always issues and concerns within each relationship so take heart, things will work out if you are patient.  Creative pursuits, such as singing, playing an instrument, writing, acting, dancing, painting, drawing, or interior decorating, etc., can help you unwind and feel at peace with yourself.  Try to see which area you would be most comfortable with and try to take classes or continue your studies in those areas, if appropriate.  Friendships are going to change, whether you will meet new people or change the way your relationship has been in the past.  Only you can determine which is better for you.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Seeing things from another point of view is important.  Believe it or not, you are not always right, although you think you are.  You now have a deeper understanding of your life and what you want to accomplish; you are trying to figure out how to move forward with your dreams, aspirations and goals.  New relationships may be on the horizon if you are looking for one or wanting a change from your current partner.  You are resolute in knowing what you want in your life and what needs to be left in the past.  You will feel intense emotions about so many things, but in the end, you will be content about changing what you felt was necessary to make yourself happy. 

›AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 18

Business and personal relationships are highlighted now.  Are you making the most of all of your relationships?  I mean all of your relationships, like your mother and father, siblings, best friends, co-workers, associates, acquaintances, students, etc.  This is an important time for you to be making close associations for the future. On a personal level, are you trying to find the right one or are you lazily just waiting for the universe to bring someone to your door?  This could be a partner, family member or friend.  Are you on good terms with everyone in your life?  This is the time to change things around.  You may even be thinking of moving, organizing your life, stepping towards voluntary simplicity (less things and more people), or downgrading your life style to have less stress. 

PISCES – February 19 – March 19

You seem to be too emotional these days.  Many things get you upset or confuse you and you are really not sure why.  You may also have a little bit of depression thrown in for good measure on some days.  But instead of fighting this, use your emotions to express so many creative feelings.  Music, song, dancing, painting, writing, acting and so many other forms of expression are left open for you.  You may see things as the glass half empty now, but you are working through some negativity quickly and only the positive will be leftover for you to use to set up a wonderful new future for yourself and those you love.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

There is a lot of activity in your career. You may be thinking of changing professions and going in another direction.  Home based business, self-employed, consultant work all come to mind.  It seems you just feel as if this is a good time to make the change since you have been dissatisfied for some time now.  Luck will be coming to you anytime you make a change this month since Jupiter (the best luck planet) is protecting you.  You feel exhausted, tired and unappreciated, not only at work, but in other areas of life as well.  You need to figure out what best suits your life at this time and start going in that new direction one day at a time.  Change is always difficult and filled with anxieties, but once you make your mind up about in which direction you wish to go, you will feel certain that you have waited too long to go onto your new path.

’TAURUS – April 19 – May 19                                                 

Friends are of importance to you and it seems as if you will learn many karmic lessons from them.  The trick is to learn the lessons so that they will no longer be repeated.  You feel much more positive about your relationships, whether romantic or not, and are making decisions about them more confidently.  It is a great time to make a change in your appearance that you have been considering for awhile now.  Maybe cutting or growing your hair, perhaps a different style or color.  Get a fresh and clean new makeover or get some new clothes that you have been tempted to purchase in the past.  You do not have to go overboard, and you can of course wait for sales, but you feel as if you need a brand new look to go with your new attitudes and thoughts.  You seem to be more family oriented now and may even want to have a special birthday celebration with family and friends or you may wish to celebrate a special occasion.  Thoughts of responsibilities and obligations make you work hard so that you can help out those who need it.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 19

It seems all of your luck is coming from unusual or mysterious sources.  It may be from getting back into your spiritual, esoteric or metaphysical studies or practices; it may also be from others who want to repay you for all the good you have done for them (and of course, if you haven’t done any good for anyone, you will be repaid for that as well!).  It is very important to communicate well with loved ones and friends.  You may lose some friendships if you are not vigilant.  You may wish to start a new business or expand on your current one.  You are looking at life from a different perspective with fresh, new eyes and want more than you have had before.  You are being extremely active and trying to finish a million projects at once.  You may also be interested in getting into a romantic relationship, if you are not already involved. If you are, you may need to light a small flame of excitement or adventure to get the relationship going in the right direction.  Fantasy or illusion/delusion can only make you change direction without cause.  Be realistic in all decisions. Creativity and artistic ability will help you relax, be able to make you think more clearly and be more productive.

CANCER – June 20 – July 21

On the whole, this month will be good for you.  It will give you a cosmic kick in the butt and get you going in the direction you should have been going a long time ago.  You will be more apt to change and listen to those who want the best for you.  Career will be interesting since you are comfortable at your place of employment, but know that there must be something else better than what you already have. Relationships may be confusing.  Communication, couples’ counseling, and even trying to figure out if you really want to stay in that relationship with your partner will continue to be some of the thoughts on your mind. Study, formal education or go to lectures, seminars, workshops and training which will be a good to keep your mind focused on important areas of life.  Spirituality and religion will also keep you focused and grounded.  If life is trying to push you off of your path, perhaps looking at in which direction you will be heading is very important.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

Finances seem to improve.  Try to sell unneeded or unwanted items on eBay, or Craigslist or just keep your bits and pieces for a spring garage sale.  You can give away anything that you wish to friends, family or charities, but some things may be worth much more to you and the money is needed at this time to pay off debts or get your finances under control.  You too may be tired of the same old rat race and want to do something completely different, but either you are unsure of what to do, or you are in the planning stages of seeing what makes sense for you.  Being active and ready to change once the opportunity represents itself, you are full of hope and promise for a brand new future which will bring new possibilities to your lifestyle.  Jupiter is following you around, getting ready to give you a cosmic boost whenever you need it.  Your confidence is high and emotionally, you are on the top of your game; however, deciding when and if you want to go in a new direction is the key.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

Family issues can be confusing and upsetting at times, but only if you let them get to you.  If you are an observer instead of a participant in all of the chaos and craziness, then you will not be as easily affected.  There is much positive energy and opportunities coming to you, but you must be strong enough to take them or they will pass you by.  Be aware of your comments to others as you may say things without thinking and cause a real problem – especially at work.  You must also live in the now and not fantasize about the future, whether it will be much more positive or different.  Only you can make that happen, so if you are not happy with an area or areas of your life, then change them.  Only you can do this!  Creativity, whether it is in jewelry making, art, writing, singing, dancing or acting, seems to be what you must do to keep yourself level headed, grounded and secure.  You are so good in so many creative areas, but it seems as if time is running away from you and you are not working to your potential. 

LIBRA – September 22 – October 21

Home life and career seem to be at odds with each other or you just don’t have time for either of them.  You are too scattered and exhausted.  You seem to be on a merry-go-round and you just never get the chance to get off.  Complete projects at home and at your place of employment.  Even if you do a little bit in each area every day, you will finish up in no time at all.  Being disappointed about a few areas of life now, you may wish to get up the courage you need to again make the appropriate changes, take that risk and move forward.  Sometimes you have to leave people behind so you can open up the path before you where you will meet others who will help you on your journey forward.  This is a great time to start accepting help from others.  You must limit your gestures of always being there for everyone because many times, your help goes unappreciated or it is just expected.  Pick and choose who gets your help so that the ones who receive it will be grateful for your assistance.

SCORPIO – October 22 – November 20

It is a time where you will have to determine which areas of life are worth your time and effort.  You may have to compromise, set more boundaries and limitations from others and handle the things that have been giving you the most trouble.  You are over-worked and have a great deal on your mind.  How will you get it all done?  Be kind to yourself and realize that everything takes time.  Deal with one issue at a time and then the positive energy will be attracted to you much more easily and life will move along more smoothly.  Leaving many projects open ended will keep you from gaining the peace of mind that you seek. Use your creative mind to figure out ways of completing tasks and projects with friends and family.  You’ve always helped them and now it is appropriate that you ask for assistance in your hour of need.  Your family and friends will be happy to help you, especially since it will be a small thank you for all you’ve done for them.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

If things are blown out of proportion, do not get upset, just know that you have to calm down and understand what was actually being said or done. This is another example of not thinking before you speak. Your emotions seem to be taking a ride on a rollercoaster these days and if someone says the wrong thing, watch out!  You go on the warpath.  However, there is so much going on in your life which is positive and going in the right direction.  You have a real sense of self-worth, self-confidence and self-esteem.  You are doing what you want to be doing and enjoying life to its fullest.  You are reconnecting with friends and making sure that you have plenty of time to spend with loved ones as well.  Traveling or getting out of a rut is your top priority.  Women in your life will bring you the greatest joy and yet may also bring you some heartache, so be very careful as to which energy you attract and accept.  Money continues to be spent freely, so budgeting a little more would ensure that you have what you need to survive and live comfortably.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Health issues may be of concern.  If you are due for a health care checkup, do not procrastinate any longer.  Be sure to get whatever tests or meds you may need to be healthy and fit.  A new diet or exercise is also important.  If you are trying to lose weight, this would be the time to make a diet plan for yourself so that you can lose weight on a consistent basis without starving yourself.  Discussing important issues with loved ones will be vital to settling differences or hurt feelings.  You also may be thinking too much and may have some sleepless nights.  Career issues may be on your mind, but until you are certain in which direction you wish to go, do not take any chances with your future.  If you are looking for another job, be sure you have secured a job elsewhere before you give notice.  Be very cautious and do not take any chances so that you will be safe and accident free.

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 18

Change is all around you, but which changes do you want to bring into your life?  You seem to need a rest from your hectic job and you do need some down time.  Otherwise, you tend to be everyone else’s therapist and don’t really discuss your issues with anyone.  At some point, you should discuss your concerns and issues with those closest to you. It is a fact that Aquarians don’t like to trouble others with their problems, but you’ve helped so many people…isn’t it time that they help you back for all you’ve done for them?  New beginnings and directions seem to be coming your way and the only question is, “Will you take them?”  This is a good time to look over your important papers including your will and living will to make sure that everything is exactly the way you would like it.  Being conscious of your budget is a good thing.  Don’t keep it wound up so tightly that you don’t have any money for any type of entertainment or fun.

PISCES – February 19 – March 19

So many adventures and so little time.  You have so much to do and you don’t seem to have the time to do them in.  Budgeting your time better would be a great thing for you to achieve your goals and dreams.  You can always ask others to help you to get to your goals in a timelier manner. You are thinking about so many things simultaneously that it is overwhelming.  Boil down your goals to just a few things, get them done and then you can be on to your next list of things to do.  Education or training seems important now, so don’t put it off if you know what you want to do.  Don’t let confusion or fear keep you from accomplishing everything that you want for your family and yourself.  This is a great time to freshen up your style with new makeup or innovative clothes.  Creativity is the key to unleashing your talents.  If this type of job doesn’t bring in the money, you can always do them part time and keep your career which is allowing you to pay the bills.
