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. _________________________________________________________________________________________

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.

March Horoscopes 2016

 

Important dates this month are:  The 8th, International Women’s Day and the Solar Eclipse; the 13th, Daylight Savings Time begins; the 17th, St. Patrick’s Day; the 20th, Palm Sunday and The Vernal Equinox; the 23rd, The Lunar Eclipse; the 24th, the 25th, Good Friday; and the 27th, Easter Sunday.

Solar Eclipses 2016

(I’ve printed this before, but I think it’s worth repeating).

Solar Eclipses are very important in astrology.  2016 has two eclipses on March 8 and September 1.  Solar eclipses can cause a dramatic impact on your life:

What is a dramatic impact on one’s life, you may ask?

It means that you can change your life and go into any direction you want it to go.  It means that if you don’t like the way your life is going, you can change it in a positive manner and the effect will last until the subsequent eclipse.

No matter whether you can see an eclipse or not from your home is irrelevant.  The energy of the eclipse affects the whole world and the whole day from midnight to midnight.

So what should you do on an eclipse?

I love explaining to my students and clients what they should do on an eclipse.  It’s very simple and practical at the same time.  Do whatever you want to be doing for the next six months.  So, if you want to start looking for a new job, send out resumes on that day. If you are trying to sell your home, talk to a realtor that day or drop into a realtor’s office OR put your house up for sale on an eclipse for extra energy in selling it quickly. If you like your job, get to work on time, be friendly, have lunch with co-workers, etc.  Don’t go shopping on an eclipse or your intent would be to spend extra money during the next six months.  Do contact people you would like to have in your life more than you do now.  You can email, write or visit with them, it doesn’t matter.  The contact is the important issue.  Go out to a meal with friends or your partner (or children, if you’d like) so that you would have more time and money to do that.  I tell my women students not to pay so that they would not be picking up many of the bills in the future.  If you are ill on this day, unfortunately, you will probably catch every kind of cold to flu or worse during this time period.  So please take care of yourself so you don’t have to worry about your health.

Personally, I read, take the dog for a walk, listen to CDs, watch TV, rest, plan to do a hobby or interest and make sure I either lecture, write or have clients on that day to attract more business.  You can start a new redecorating project or personal hobby.  You can take a new class, start a new foreign language series that you always wanted to learn.  Make a home cooked meal for the family if it is your intent to have the family around the dinner table more (but remember, you will be cooking more too).  You can always order pizza!  Tell someone you like/love them.

What shouldn’t you do on an eclipse?

That’s easy to answer.  Do not do housework!  Do not schedule any medical procedures or a doctor’s appointment.  (You don’t want to be sick for the next six months, do you?).  Do not pay bills or have a fight with anyone.  If you do, make up quickly so this will not be an issue for the future.  Do not stay home from work on this day or you will be down sized, laid off or fired.  (Several students tested me on this and told me in the following semester that they had gone on unemployment!).  If you are home sick from work, put on makeup and get dressed so you will not be lying around watching TV while not being groomed properly. (Men, you don’t have to put on makeup!).  Do not procrastinate or put things off which should be done now.

Don’t do anything you don’t want to be doing over and over again for the next six months.  It’s like a video that will be playing each day over and over again until the next eclipse. Think about what you want to accomplish and make sure you are doing that exact thing with the people you want to be doing it with.

So all in all, a solar eclipse is a wonderful way or reorganizing your life, bringing positive energy in that you need to make your life complete or to get it on another path.

I hope your eclipse is everything you want it to be.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Long awaited good luck is coming to your sign and blessing you.  Do what you need to do at the moment to make your life easier.  Finish projects, start new ones, go to school or take classes, start a new adventure or creative pursuit.  Whatever you feel you should be doing at the moment is exactly what you need to make your life easier, more enjoyable and rewarding.  Friendships should be gratifying now as you find new friends who are more in sync with your interests and hobbies.  You share more with others and are finding that you feel as if many of your concerns are leaving you.  Getting interested in many new things will keep you busy and you will learn much about new subjects and yourself.  Try to interact with those who may have caused issues in the past since there may still be some good to come out of the issue.  Have fun and be open for new adventures. 

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19                                                                              

This is a good time to deal with personal matters, especially those that are very private to you.  Confiding in a good friend or family member is wonderful, but be sure that the people you confide in are trustworthy as you don’t want to find your personal business being spread among other friends, family and co-workers than you intended.  Home life takes a dramatic and positive turn for the better.  Philosophies and how you deal with life issues is important now.  You may be changing your views on many topics, so much so that you confuse those around you.  You are becoming very specific about your goals and ambitions, but may take on more than you can chew now, so set up priorities.  Then you can accomplish your goals in an orderly fashion with little consequences to your health or mental outlook.  If possible, rest a bit more and have a balanced day with school, work, chores, errands, fun and life in general.  Health issues need some attention. 

GEMINI – May 20 – June 19

Discussions with others will help you realize that many are going through the same doubts and issues that you are. Thinking and rehashing old issues may keep you from moving forward.  Deal with past issues and welcome the new energy and opportunities for the future to come into your life.  You may feel discouraged and somewhat irritated at times, but with a plan to get to your desired goals and dreams, the sky is the limit.  Don’t make rash decisions at this time since you are not thinking as clearly as possible and there is just too much clutter in your brain.  You need to dedicate a portion of each day, week, etc., to accomplishing all of those unfinished projects and to start the new ones that you want to do as well.  The way you look at life may be changing.  You seem bored and dissatisfied with so much and yet you continue to accomplish great things.  Is it possible that you are judging yourself too harshly?  Keep up with health matters since ignoring them won’t make them go away.

CANCER – June 20 – July 21

Change is on the horizon and you should be able to nicely handle everything that comes your way.  What do you want to change in your life?  What really needs to change?  When can you start taking positive steps towards your future?  Do not let your uncertainty stop you from taking these positive risks.  Speak up and let everyone know how you feel about certain issues.  However, being on the move is anticipated – possibly traveling and thinking in new dimensions about your future.  What a wonderful start of getting you to the place in your life that you want to be.  You are leaving behind everyone and everything that will continue to hurt or exploit you in some way and are trying to start a calmer life with more positive results and positive people.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

Family matters may be confusing, and if you don’t let them get you down, you will be able to handle things smoothly.  Deal with one day at a time and when a situation happens, deal with it.  Then deal with the next issue and so on.  Try not to take control of all situations as you don’t need to expend the extra energy or stress over things that you really cannot control.  Others may need to take care of their own responsibilities as part of a karmic pact.  Therefore, you may guide others, but many have to make their own decisions about their future path and it is not up to you to help everyone along the way.  There is much good luck coming your way regarding your relationships and in joining new groups and dealing with your hopes and dreams.  Even though emotions may be stormy at times, it seems as if you have a good grasp on them and in the direction you want your life to go.  Be strong, choose a direction and start working towards that a little each day.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

Even though the solar eclipse in Pisces opposes you, your confidence is going in a positive direction.  However, family issues can be frustrating so don’t make it worse by bringing home stress from work.  You may be misunderstood and angry at times, so try to edit what you said before it leaves your mouth!  Just remember, words cannot be taken back and although some may forgive you, your words will never be forgotten.  Thinking about furthering your career is a noble quest, but more classes or training may be in order.  Are you happy at your job or is it time for a change?  This is a serious decision that needs some thought.  If you keep fear and emotions out of the equation, your decision will be much easier to deal with.  Keep communication open between family and friends so that any issues which arise can be dealt with quickly and fairly. 

LIBRA – September 22 – October 21

Restructuring your life is important now.  You should let go of things that don’t work for you any longer and release things that have negative emotions or connotations associated with them.   You may feel restricted or limited in some way, but know that things are coming to a head so that you can make positive progress in your future. Librans will get rid of anything that is no longer good for them (with much deliberation and conflicting thought), but I think they are tired of all the unnecessary negativity around them.  They are ready for positive energy and opportunities to start guiding them to a brand new future filled with all of their dreams coming true.  The energy seems to go back and forth – so you are not quite sure of how this month will turn out.  Be positive and work towards inner peace, guidance, self-confidence and strength and you will be in the perfect place for you at this time.

SCORPIO – October 22 – November 20

It is time to work hard to accomplish your goals and to allow all the benefits of this hard work to come to fruition.  Accept all the good the universe has to offer so when others want to help you or give you gifts (time, advice, help, etc.), a simple and grateful, “Thank you,” will be your response. You have much potential in attending formal education, lectures, seminars, workshops, training, etc., as well as many opportunities to change the way you feel about your philosophies of life including your spiritual and/or religious beliefs.  You may question some beliefs you held dear or are looking for more information on the foundation you already have to see a broader picture of life. Travel may also be indicated or you may be thinking of a getaway since weather continues to be too wintery to handle.  Love life is important so try to be attentive to your romantic partner and give all the time and attention you can afford to your children.  They may seem a bit neglected with all of the responsibilities you have.  How about a TV night or a movie night together?  Do something fun with the whole family so that you can build or rebuild strong emotional ties with loved ones.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

Annoying small health issues and exhaustion may make you feel that you really need to rest and take care of yourself rather than being so focused on all of your pet projects.  This is a good time to be cautious while traveling and not a good time for taking any type of risks.  Being cautious and prepared should be your motto this month. If you are late to appointments, work, etc., then be late.  It is better to be a little late than to get into an accident by rushing to your destination. Be aware of your surroundings and be careful. You may suffer from hoof and mouth disease so be cognizant of what you are saying to whom.  People have a very long memory when it comes to being hurt, so try to reserve your caustic comments for another time.  Those around you seem super sensitive, so just try to be someone that others can confide in and trust.  Be gracious and non judgmental since it will be in your best interest to keep friendships and relationships on friendly terms.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Transformation and change seem to be needed in partnerships, whether personal or professional, so that you can feel calmer and have better peace of mind.  Love life may take a drastic turn if you are taking him or her for granted. A few words of praise or encouragement now will go a long way to strengthen the bond between you.  Work also seems to be keeping you away from your home or relationships, so some balance between the two is in order.  You may be thinking of changing business or personal partnerships because they don’t seem to be working out the way you envisioned them.  However, think over major decisions carefully and how they will affect everyone involved.  You may not be the only one who is bored, hurt or tired.  Work goes well as many changes bring new beginnings.  You may feel as if things are not very balanced at the moment, but you are on the road to happiness and fulfillment in the very near future.  Just go with the flow for now.

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 18

Trying to get organized is always a lot of work.  You have been doing such a good job, but there is so much more to do.  Paperwork is mounting up as well as unfinished projects around the home and office.  Make time to unwind and relax.  Many important decisions need to be addressed; however, you may need to be prepared to go into a different direction.  Take the classes or certification courses you need to move forward and don’t rely on others.  This is all about you taking control of your choices and living the life you were meant to live.  Things may seem confusing or perplexing now, but it is just because you are in an indecisive state.  Don’t be afraid to speak up if others are making your life a bit crazy.  You have the right to be happy and enjoy your life as well.  What is it that you want out of life?  Whatever that decision is, try to take strides in that direction.  Career seems to be moving in a different direction, so be prepared to make changes which will only bring more positive opportunities and growth in your future. 

PISCES – February 19 – March 19

With the upcoming eclipse, there is much energy around you — pushing you to do so many unplanned things.  Make sure you put your intent out into the universe as March 8th roles around.  Overcoming obstacles that you feel have been holding you back will be directing you into new beginnings with so many wonderful opportunities for your future.  The only issue would be that if you don’t take these opportunities as they are presented to you as they may pass you by and never return. So decide which opportunities would be good for you to grab so when they are available to you, they will be easy to grab onto.  Unexpected changes in your life show you how to get the results you really need.  Try not to be too sensitive now as not everyone is out to hurt you.  Procrastination can be a major issue this month so make sure you are ready to handle one project a day or prioritize your time so that you can accomplish many of the things that are important to you by month’s end.

February 2016 Horoscopes

Important dates this month are:  February 2 is Groundhog Day/Candlemas; the 8th is Chinese New Year: Monkey; the 9th is Shrove Tuesday/Mardi Gras; the 10th is Ash Wednesday; the 14th is St. Valentine’s Day; and lastly, the15th is Presidents’ Day.

Chinese New Year:  Year of the Red Fire Monkey.

People wonder how the Chinese New Year is determined each year since it doesn’t fall on the same date.  It is actually the second full moon after the Winter Solstice.  The second full moon from December 21st is on February 8th and that’s when we celebrate the Year of the Monkey, The New Chinese Year.  Here is a list of the Chinese animals that correspond to particular years.

The Chinese calendar attaches different animals to each lunar year in a cycle of 12 years. The lucky colors for the Year of the Red Fire Monkey include white, blue and gold. The year’s lucky numbers are 4 and 9, and the lucky flowers are chrysanthemum and crape-myrtle.

People born in a year of the Monkey are witty, intelligent, and have a magnetic personality. Personality traits, like mischievousness, curiosity, and cleverness, make them very naughty. Monkeys are masters of practical jokes, because they like playing most of the time.

When Monkey Year 2016 Starts

2016 doesn’t start on January 1 for Monkeys (and traditional Chinese)! It starts at Chinese New Year (February 8, 2016), which changes year-to-year according to the Chinese lunar calendar. People born in January or February should take particular note of when the Chinese New Year falls to confirm their birth sign.

See Solar Eclipse article on www.vikkianderson.net under Articles tab to tell you what you should and should not do on an eclipse for March 8th.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

There seems to be an issue with your financial security and stability.  Money will be an issue until you decide how to handle the situation. The challenge will not go away on its own.  Be optimistic and make sure you accomplish all you were meant to get done.  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                                         

Communication is very important now and you should be extremely careful when talking to others.  You may say something without thinking and you will be sorry, but can’t take it back.  You may be more open with your responses and your advice, so be sure people want to hear what you have to say before you say it.  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. 

GEMINI – May 20 – June 19

Positive changes are happening in your home life or with the people who are living in your home.  If you are alone, then you will start to notice that your goals and objectives are also starting to change and will be going in another direction.  This is the universe’s way of getting you on the right path. 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 then try to finish them.  Then you can go off to the next one on your list (or next 10 on your list for you dualistic signs). 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 20 – July 21

This month, it seems that your interest is in your health.  You are very aware of what is going on within your body and you may wish to see a doctor if you feel something is wrong.  The good news is that if you go early to see what is going on, it usually means that the illness or concern will be easier resolved.  If you wait, there may be complications. 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

Personal and business relationships start to go in a much more positive direction.  It is a time when you see the result of your hard work in business or pleasure and you are delighted to know that you were just not wasting your time.  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

Good luck is coming to town!  Be open for the positive opportunities that Jupiter will bestow upon you and personal and business relationships or partnerships.  It’s a wonderful time to take your romantic relationship to the next level as well as handling business that needs to be handled or resolved. 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 21

Your money and your spouses’ money are the main concern.  (It may also be a romantic partnerships’ money or money issues, or someone is handling a will or legal papers.)  There are people at odds with each other so frank communication and paper backup will go a long way in resolving conflicts.  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 22 – November 20

Not a great time to travel.  It seems you may be a bit agitated by loved ones and friends and you are so ready to leave some of them behind.  Instead you keep things inside and make yourself miserable.  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

Work is busy and there is plenty of hard work ahead of you.  You have obligations and responsibilities at work (with your fellow employees or subordinates) and you have to be the motivation that pushes your projects forward.  If your employees or co-workers see you working so hard, you will notice that they will be working just as hard as you.  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 19

Friends, groups and association as well as spirituality combine together to make this an interesting month.  You may let some friends go, especially those who have been using you for a long time.  You have no more time for nonsense and just want to continue on in relationships or organizations you belong to in an extremely positive direction. 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 18

This is a wonderful month for you to shine.  Your energy is at its peak and you should be able to do or handle anything that comes your way.  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 19 – March 19

This may also be a very inspirational period for you so you may be interested in finding new metaphysical or esoteric authors to read up on.  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.

January Horoscopes 2016

Important dates this month:  January 1 is New Year’s Day and January 18 is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

Happy New Year!

I wish everyone a truly blessed and Happy New Year.  What are the changes and wishes that the New Year may bring?  January 1 gives us hope for new beginnings, new ventures, new journeys, new relationships, and new business and travel opportunities.  Yes, this is the time to start planning for another year of something new that you want in your life.  But the key word is “PLAN”.  You have to plan for these changes as they just don’t materialize out of thin air.  Most new things that come into our lives happen because we were prepared to accept them and already did all the necessary hard work to bring them to fruition.  We changed the energy around us and then waited for the new energy to manifest our dreams and goals.

Many people use New Year’s Day as a time where they make resolutions that they think will play-out throughout the rest of the year. This is usually about new diet or exercise program, or about being more organized, stopping the procrastination or being kinder to everyone. There are always the ones about working smarter and not harder, or about attending church or temple services more regularly.

Have you ever noticed that your New Year’s resolutions last about 2-4 weeks at the most and then fade away like a dream you once had. You still have the excess weight; you’re still not exercising and although you want to be a kinder person, there are still the same co-workers or friends that drive you mad. And working harder, not smarter does not always work out the way you had planned.  Usually you are doing fine at work, but need an extra job to pay all the bills, so although you may be working smarter in some aspect of your job(s), you are working too hard.  You have good intentions about going to church or temple, but then friends call and you’re out for the day or there are family special events and your religious beliefs fall to the wayside.  The reason?  There is absolutely no special astrological or astronomical energy making those resolutions permanent on January 1.  They are just dates on the calendar.  That is why solar eclipses are so important.  The next two are on March 8 and September 1 of this year.  Whatever it is you wish for yourself, start planning on that day; take a step towards your new goals, dreams and beginnings.  Be proactive and change everything that is negative in your life. You can do it.  It starts with one simple step towards the way you want to live.  If you want a new job, send out resumes on that day or put money in the bank so that your next six months will bring in more income than the last six.  Be nice, compassionate, caring, kind, and do spend time with your family or romantic partner, etc.  Do whatever seems like the right things to do on an eclipse so it will be repeated like a YouTube video until the next solar eclipse.

Solar eclipses have tremendous energy on that whole day even though the actual eclipse is at a specific time; you have from midnight to midnight to put that new energy into effect.

See Solar Eclipse article on www.vikkianderson.net under Articles tab to tell you what you should and should not do on an eclipse.

As I’ve indicated each January since I’ve started these horoscopes, the dates change a day or two each year to the beginning or ending of each sign.  If your natal birth sign falls within these changes, it makes no difference to you.  You will always be the sun sign you were born under because we use the exact year of your birth to determine your sun sign.

Planets in the night sky Mercury through the 9th.

Sun enters Aquarius on January 20.

 ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Get out of the house and have some fun.  Do the unexpected.  Your life is getting a little too humdrum for your liking.  Invite friends to your house or go out on a night on the town.  It’s time for a new beginning with fun and laughter along the way just in time for the New Year with all of its blessings.  There is much to be done, many resolutions to be kept and so many new people to meet.  You do need balance in keeping your personal and business lives separate.  Don’t let people dupe you into doing things you really don’t have the time or the interest in doing, even if they give you a hard luck story.  You need some alone time, so you can catch up on everything that has been a procrastination issue for you.  Take control of your life.  Even though finances may seem erratic and unexpected expenses may hit you when you least expect it, you will do well with the new energy of 2016.  Think bigger and make this New Year work for you. 

TAURUS – April 19 – May 19                                                                              

Making concessions and changes are always a good thing.  You want to be happy so you are starting to compromise just a little and change things you never thought you would.  The new energy of 2016 is for you to handle as many of your responsibilities and obligations as possible while sorting out your life.  It is about balance and gratitude for everything you have attained and for all the blessings you have in your life which will continue to grow throughout the New Year.  Love life should be getting more romantic and stronger as the year progresses.  You may also be interested in spicing things up or changing some of the rules in your relationship.  However, good luck seems to be following you around, especially where finances are concerned. Many are looking for answers to questions that have been consistently on their minds.  Some are of health related illnesses or concerns and not only for themselves, but for loved ones as well. If you take care of any health related issue quickly, it will be resolved.  If you are moving, changing jobs or doing anything that will change the status of your finances, do not worry.  Things will be on the right track soon and you will have everything you need; however, you may have to put your want list on the back burner at the moment. 

GEMINI – May 20 – June 19

What a great time to continue writing, painting or singing.  You can continue doing anything that is artistic and creative now; learn new crafts, modalities or gain more useful information.  Business and personal partnerships are of great importance to your positive future.  You may be confused about so many issues now and really don’t seem to be able to make an informed decision.  With so much going on in your life, you do find it very hard to make good decisions quickly.  If this is the case, take your time in deciding important things in your life or ask for guidance from family or friends. You do have the strength to see a clearer vision of your future.  You will get more organized and grounded as well as feel more secure in your ability to handle your life in the most positive way. Creativity and ideas abound now so jot them down for another time if you are too overwhelmed to start another project now; however, be sure the projects you are working on are important to you and not just a clever way of procrastinating on the things you really need to accomplish.  Many will also have unsettling times within your own home with family squabbles or confrontations.  There is nothing worse than trying to get angry at someone who is calm and collected.  You will confuse them with your demeanor and you can have a good laugh later on when you are alone.

CANCER – June 20 – July 21

Home life is very important to you. You want so much to be done with the issues in your life, but feel you have responsibilities at home which may make you feel as if you are trapped.  Watching your finances and keeping them secure is very important.  Too much is going on and your finances seem affected in a big way.  Be wary of things that seem too good to be true – scams abound!  Check out things that are offered to you and do your homework so that you will be financially secure in the future.  Budget and stick with that budget. Unexpected financial responsibilities may arise so you may need to be sure that you have money in the bank for unforeseen circumstances.  Dealing with others in a very cautious way will only make others feel uneasy with you.  Be positive and make those plans for the upcoming year.  You keep vacillating on what you want to do in so many things in your life, that your life is becoming a stagnant.  You need to relax, open up and trust the universe in all of its glory.  You have so much to be thankful for, so just acknowledge that you are blessed and continue to live in happiness and abundance.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

Fun, creativity and going places seem right for you at the moment.  What else can you bring into your life to make it fun?  Foreign travel or higher education seems to be ahead for you.  There may be seminars or training classes that you are asked to attend for work or you will want to learn a new subject or two with the extra time you have found.  You have taken a step to prioritize your life nicely and really need to continue in this direction.  Getting organized and unburdened of many peoples’ issues and problems will help you concentrate on what you want to materialize into your life.  Love life may be somewhat stressed so why not have a date night out alone together or go out with a group of  friends or family members that you know will make your day out relaxing and fun.  Your thoughts and opinions are running wild, so be sure that your opinions are solicited before you tell everyone how you feel about everything. Occasionally, your brain and mouth do not coordinate themselves and you can get into trouble. Think before speaking!  Sometimes not revealing everything you know or how you feel will help you down the road. You can always show your true feelings or be totally honest when it is appropriate at another time.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

The never-ending health conscious Virgoan.  It’s a time to deal with any health issues and perhaps start a new regime of healthier eating and exercise.  Many internal changes are going on within you and you may feel as if you just don’t know exactly what to do any more.  Should you leave your current relationship, job, or home?  This can be tricky so make sure you are absolutely sure about any changes in your life and thoughtfully think about how those changes will affect others and you. You should deal with your finances in a much more practical way and be conservative about all of your spending? Take your time before deciding on career decisions so that you can make the best choice with the most accurate information available. You may be getting a bit tired of the never-ending boring repetition of your life and yearn to try new things and perhaps get some new friends and join organizations or social clubs in an area of interest.  Meeting new perspectives, new ideas, people, interesting conversation will make you feel renewed and alive.  Go for it!  You deserve this change.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 21

Business and personal partnerships can be hard to deal with.  Your intent is to solve issues, but you may run into resistance. Friendships may be strained if you are not diplomatic.  Be sensitive to the needs of others and things will work out fine.  You need a bit more order in your life now so decide what needs to be done to give you peace of mind.  Does your home need to be de-cluttered and organized?  Do you need to talk to your boss about your job description and convey that you may need more money for all of the additional responsibilities you have taken on throughout the years?  Do your friendships need to be scrutinized?  Are there friends who are takers and you really wouldn’t miss them if they were no longer in your circle?  Some friends may also ask for loans so be prepared to say no or give them a lesser amount than they are asking.  You are not in a secure financial position that you can help everyone, although you’d like to, so do what you can, but you need to set limits.  Don’t let everyone walk all over you and start living the life you want to on your own terms.  Just remember: if someone is dying of thirst and asks you for water and you don’t have any, unfortunately you can’t honor their request.  In life, you can only give what you have and be sure it is something that can be replaced or replenished before you say yes to every request that comes your way.

SCORPIO – October 22 – November 20

You should deal with whichever money issues are important right now so that you can start accomplishing other goals.  You have a lot of good luck around you, but you need to grab the opportunities when they present themselves or they may pass you by and never return.  Many things are going on behind the scenes, but you are not ready to see them.  There may be partnership issues that you may not be ready to deal with either; however, keep your eyes open.  You may hear something that is somewhat disturbing to you, but if you deal with it calmly and logically, you can quickly resolve the gossip or situation.  Finances seem to be stable and secure.  You will have a steady flow of income as well as financial responsibilities including a few projects around the home.  Ask for help if you need it from those who you have helped throughout the years.  Life is about reciprocal energy.  If you do for others, they should offer to do something for you in return.  Perhaps it’s your turn to cash in your karma chips.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

Travel always is appealing to you, but you might want to wait until February if at all possible. This is a great opportunity to look outside of the box.  New perspectives help you make important decisions that you would have otherwise neglected or overlooked.  You are trying to be more consistent, grounded and centered.  Everything that has seemed crazy in your life will make much more sense and you will have the feeling that everything you have gone through was for an important purpose – perhaps to promote self growth, inner strength and inner courage.  Family issues should start calming down if you take it one day at a time.  Try not to overreact to situations in which you have no control. Health issues may be of concern, so if you haven’t had a physical or a doctor’s appointment in a very long time, what are you waiting for?  Get checked out so that if anything is wrong or not normal, steps can be taken to have it taken care of properly. Home life issues will continue to be upsetting at times; however, you are in a much better frame of mind to deal with any difficulties that may come your way.  You seem to see the light at the end of the tunnel; you are very adamant about getting to the other side of that tunnel because that light has been just a flicker for so long and you’re ready to continue on your journey of life to see what else there is waiting up ahead for you. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Your career and personal life needs to find a balance.  Too much work and not enough time for you just doesn’t seem right.  What can be done?  Are you spending important time with your spouse, partner and/or family?  It’s all about money for you.  Even though having money in the bank is for your family, I’m sure they’d trade some of your time at work for you to be at home foregoing the money for a day here and there.  However, you want to know how to make more money, how to keep it as security for your family and future, and most importantly, how to pay off your mortgage and debt.  You may also have some concerns about your love life or women in your life who may like you just because of your money.  Don’t make money a big issue in your life and no one will be the wiser.  Responsibilities and obligations at home make you feel as if you work for free.  All that you make goes for unexpected expenses.  Be happy to know that you have the money to pay for these expenses, as many people are not in your particular circumstances to do that.  Business affairs can be tricky, so be sure that you have all of the facts about a situation at work before confronting anyone.  You should play the diplomat and hopefully that will help you resolve some of the issues without ruffling any feathers among co-workers or superiors.  If you are the boss, be fair in your decisions about employees.  Everyone is entitled to make mistakes.

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 18

Getting to see and deal with friends, family and groups and organizations will help you unwind and have some much needed fun and companionship. You are settling in to a much more balanced year so everything around you will be making more sense and you will feel relieved that things are finally falling into place.  You are able to make decisions about your future.  Aquarians can leave the past behind and look forward to new beginnings with family and friends as well as new partnerships coming into your life.  Neighbors, friends and family all seem to need you now.  Be very specific in the amount of time and advice you are able to share.  Do not let their issues interfere with your life because you have a kind heart.  Finances keep you worried at times, but circumstances and help will be coming to you from the most unusual places.  Keep open to the possibilities of the universe and ask that you are blessed with everything that you truly need this year.  Friends are your salvation as they keep you from worrying about unimportant issues.

PISCES – February 19 – March 19

This is a time to get back to a spiritual life and continue with metaphysical, esoteric or unusual studies.  Home life has its ups and downs and you are a bit confused about your next move.  Your mind keeps racing and you have so much to think about that you are getting confused over all the options.  Prioritize what you really need in your life and what you should really go after.  Philosophies and esoteric teachings may give you a clue about what you truly need.  Asking for assistance from the God of your choice is also a possibility of bringing you peace of mind and the strength to accomplish everything you were meant to this year.  If you uncover secrets, things going on behind your back or secret enemies who want to gossip about you or cause trouble, try to stay focused on a new beginning without these distractions.  Don’t make the secrets ruin your life or persuade you in any way. Spirituality is a big part of your growth this year and finding your center will help propel you to do the things you were meant to do.  Be adamant about your goals and desires so that they will be easily attainable and be grateful for all that you already have.

December Horoscopes 2015

Important dates this month: Hanukkah begins on December 7, Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day on December 7, Winter Solstice on December 21, Christmas on December 25, and Kwanzaa on December 26.

 Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays, and Season’s Greetings to all!

Here are a few tips that I’ve collected throughout the years that seem to work very well for the people I’ve shared them with. I hope some of them work well for you too.

Have holiday lights on if it is appropriate to your holiday. Nothing makes guests smile better than a light display greeting them as they arrive at your home. Put lights on timers so it will discourage unwanted visitors to come to your home while you are off holiday shopping or going to parties.

If you are a baker, bake all the great cookies and breads you usually do for the holidays. Nothing invites family, friends and neighbors to come into your home better than freshly baked items with those wonderful aromas filling your kitchen and seeping through the doors or windows. You may make several of your dough recipes a few days ahead of time and keep them in the refrigerator. Then, when you need to bake, you just cut the dough (or roll it into a ball, whichever your recipe calls for) and pop them in the oven. Less stress, less mess. Don’t bake so many cookies that you have to throw them away or give them to the wildlife in your yard. Cookies cost a great deal of money to make, so figure out how many you will need and limit your baking accordingly.

Have all of your shopping and wrapping done as you purchase gifts. You can buy presents all year long and wait until after Thanksgiving to purchase larger items or items that you want to make sure can be returned. When it’s time to put the presents under the tree, you will be ready. If you really don’t want the kids to find out what you’ve purchased for them, try hiding some of the gifts in your car trunk or the attic.

Decorate the house at different times. You can put up the tree one night and then window and yard decorations can be put up over the next few days. Be sure the children are home, so that they can assist you in making your home look beautiful for the holidays. Even though I’m sure they’ll complain at having do something as lame as put up Christmas or holiday decorations, it will be good lesson to show them that the holidays are for families and families work together. You do not need to put out every holiday decoration you have. As the children leave the nest, you can put up a modest yet tasteful display. The holidays are for us to relax and enjoy the season, not stress over all the decorations, where to move the furniture until the holidays are over and rush out to buy the biggest live Christmas tree you can find. I find live trees dangerous, messy (I found pine needles the next July stuck in my rug and eventually my feet). They need constant water and they seem to dry up quickly. Be vigilant.  Also, although I’ve had many lively discussions about saving Christmas trees, I really feel that I would rather use an artificial one rather than real tree that you use for two weeks or so and then discard it. It sounds like a horrible waste of nature and they are usually expensive as well.

Write holiday cards when you have a few spare minutes throughout the fall or early December. Many people put names and addresses on computer labels and I must admit I did that for many years. I have learned that they are very impersonal and it’s just like you are saying that you wanted to get that chore out of the way as quickly as possible (which oftentimes is true!) and had no regard for the person it was being sent to. I hand write all my envelopes and messages inside each card rather than writing a long typed Christmas-gram. It’s more personal and very rare, so your card will stand out. I have received many comments on my original notes and how refreshing they were.  However, I must admit I also use e-cards to those who live in other countries. It saves on postage and you can be sure they get your holiday greeting on time.

Make sure your table linens are clean. Check them at least a week before your party and clean what needs to be washed or sent to the dry cleaners.

When getting ready to have a holiday party at your home, here are some tips: clean the house one day, set up the tables and cooking/serving dishes and glasses you will need on another day (pop them in the dishwasher if they haven’t been used since the last big holiday), do the food shopping as close to the holiday as possible. Prepare what you can ahead of time and on the day of the party, you can relax, get ready in a stress free environment and have fun with your guests!

Clean up can be done tomorrow or after your guests have gone. Some people actually pitch in and clean up as they go. If this is all right with you, by all means, accept the help. You’ve worked hard and it’s nice to have your guests show their appreciation by pitching in!  You may also throw a load of dishes, silverware and glasses in the dishwasher, go to bed and rest so you can face the mess ahead of you in the light of day with a strong cup of coffee or tea in your hand!

Use as many disposable items as you can to cut down on clean up. There are decorative paper plates, plastic utensils and lovely paper napkins. This would work especially well with a buffet, but you could also just use paper plates for dessert. The idea here is to save time and energy so you too can have a positive holiday experience.

Do simple things to help your party run smoother. Prepare the coffee ahead of time so that when it is time for your guests to have coffee (or tea), all you have to do is plug in the pot.  If it’s a large party, borrow or buy a 30 cup coffee pot so you don’t have to continually fill up the Mr. Coffee machine, this is especially true if you have one of those annoying one cup at a time machines!

Put your milk pitcher in the refrigerator filled with cold water so it will stay cold for a longer period of time when serving. This is also handy for ice buckets…freeze 1” of water in the bucket and your ice will stay colder longer.

Play soft holiday music in the background that does not disturb your guests. The idea is to let everyone enjoy themselves which includes chatting to one another. The softer holiday tunes will ensure that everyone can hear one another and most importantly, they will be able to hear you when you tell them it’s time to eat or time for dessert.

Be careful about mistletoe. Many guests are shy so if they do not kiss the person they find under it, you may kid them about it once, but then let it go.  Mistletoe and Poinsettias, although festive decorations, are poisonous to cats, so be careful where you place them.

If this is a pot luck dinner, prepare a menu so you can tell everyone what they could bring to the party. If it’s not a pot luck dinner and others ask what they may bring, you can always suggest gourmet dips, crackers and cheese, breads, wine, sparkling apple cider, eggnog, a bottle of liquor or any dessert of their choice. Tell them how many guests you are expecting so they can judge how much to bring. It’s less expense for you and you are making a guest feel more comfortable as they walk into your home with their arms full of goodies.

Is an artificial tree out of the question? There are so many kinds of artificial trees that are pre-lit (a gift from Heaven) and in so many shapes and sizes, do we really have to spend a lot of money year after year and have yet another beautiful part of nature cut down, destroyed and then burned or recycled when they are not sold? Many artificial trees look so real that you have to go up to them and touch them to figure out if they are real or not. Many of these trees can be purchased after the holidays for very reasonable prices and they look good for at least ten years if cared for properly.

Be sure to have a few presents wrapped with name tags attached but not written out. During a party, many people bring little gifts to the hostess. If you would feel funny about this, have some reasonably priced bottles of wine or boxes of chocolate under the tree that you could give them on their way out (after you scurried into another room to put their name on the tags!).

All in all, enjoy the holidays. It’s a time when family is supposed to be together no matter what your traditions are. I wish you all a blessed holiday and as Tiny Tim says, “God bless us, everyone.”

ARIES – March 20 – April 19 ruled by Mars

Spending money for the holidays is just the beginning. 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. You may over spend on those you love. 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 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 20 – May 20 ruled by Venus                                                

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. Be tactful with your partner since much energy seems to want to make you “right” or in control of every situation. If you keep a cool head and compromise where appropriate, things should run quite smoothly. 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. You may not wish to travel on this path; however, it would be in your best interest to at least look at the wonderful changes around you and the opportunities it will bring for future happiness, prosperity and good health.

GEMINI – May 21 – June 20 ruled by Mercury

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? 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. 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. You also 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.

CANCER – June 21 – July 21 ruled by the Moon

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. Even though you may feel that change is unsettling, it will be a positive experience, so go with the flow. Differences of traditions and philosophies of life will be tested and you may be persuaded to look at things from different perspectives. 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. Using your intellect to make decisions rather than emotional ones will help you choose the better option.

LEO – July 22 – August 22 ruled by the Sun

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. 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. 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.

VIRGO – August 23 – September 22 ruled by Mercury*

Holidays are always stressful, so if you are more relaxed and plan well in advance, your holidays will run quite smoothly. Getting your list and checking it twice is a great way for a Virgo to start their holiday shopping. 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 23 – October 22 ruled by Venus*

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 23 – November 21 ruled by Pluto

Be prepared to double check your travel plans as it seems as if there is a glitch that hinders you.   This does not mean that you should not travel, but it seems to be a time where extra planning and alternative plans will keep everyone calm and in control of their holidays! Running around at the last minute to get your shopping done can be an exhausting task, so use the web to order some on line gifts, if you feel that’s appropriate. You just need some down time, relaxation time, and family time for your own enjoyment and well being. You would like to plan things in advance and that’s a wonderful idea, but be flexible enough to know that all plans do not turn out exactly as we hope. Many times the things that change can be more fun than our original plans. Have a wonderful time.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20 ruled by Jupiter

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. 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. 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 ruled by Saturn

New friends and associations help propel your career through this holiday season. Networking becomes effortless as you meet many more people through new clubs, memberships and organizations. 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 17 ruled by Uranus

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. 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. 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 18 – March 19 ruled by Neptune

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. If circumstances seem confusing or dramatic, this is the best time to take that energy and turn it into a positive result. This seems like a bi-polar month. 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. The negativity around you is disappearing and you need to reinforce the positive energy that 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.
