CHOICES by Vikki Anderson

Making choices and decisions are what our

time upon this Earth is all about.

What school or profession we nurture.

To get married or not.

To have or not have children…

Our choices in life are what

our time on this Earth will reveal

to you in your next life:

Were we wise?

Did we have good judgment?

Did we bring happiness and love to others?

Were we caring enough to forego

our own needs for that of a loved one

or stranger?

Choices make us who we are today…

Who we were several hundred years ago

and what we will become centuries from now.

Choose your choices well

For you will live with them

For all eternity…for better or worse.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Many decisions have to be made about your career and if you want to remain in the same company where you now work.  There may be budget issues, but once you figure out your expenses, you’ll see you can handle your bills just fine. You seem to know your job inside and out; however, it would be especially good for you to learn new things.  Arians may also feel as if they need a new hairdo, haircut, change of wardrobe and makeup.  Looking for a makeover or updated style may be just what the doctor ordered.  Any changes that you do make are going to be positive and bring you a lot of self-confidence and keep you from getting depressed or down in the dumps.  Enjoy spring and the great weather; notice all the wonderful flowers blooming around you.

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

It seems that there are many karmic lessons to be learned within friendships and associations. Join a few clubs or groups that have a common interest, volunteer at a local animal shelter or any other type of group that you have felt an attachment to, and most importantly, make clear boundaries.  Your good nature makes you an easy target for so many people who are the takers in this world and it depends on which mood you are in to see whether or not you will stand up for yourself.  Your compassion and empathy make you an easy target for those who want your advice, time, opinions, to borrow money, etc.  Don’t be afraid to say no or in your case, just say, “I would like to (whatever), but…” and come up with a reason of the day.  You are on way out.  You’re very busy and will call when you aren’t so busy; you don’t feel well.  

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

You need to reexamine what you really want out of life and get back to your roots.  Are you practicing voluntary simplicity?  That means you are getting rid of everything you don’t like, want or need in this stage of your life so that you have more time to accomplish the important things that you have always wanted to do.  Take that trip that you have been saving for or buy a new car if yours is on its way out.  Every time you make a major change in your life, your life changes just as dramatically.  Take a class you’ve been procrastinating on or go to the local library and attend every lecture and program they present.  You are a little sponge for education and information now, so avail yourself to many of the free programs in your neighborhood or those in surrounding communities.  Spend more time with friends while learning how to crochet or knit or draw.  Learn from your friends and they in turn will ask you to teach them something you know how to do. Be sure to pay attention to your health.  If you need a checkup or haven’t gone in a long while, this is the time to catch up on your doctor visits.  

CANCER –  June 21 – July 21

There is much good luck around you and will help you deal with any unfinished business with the best results possible.  Concentrate on what you want so that things fall into place easier.  Also, at this time, be very careful about what you eat and drink.  You feel as if everything you eat is going to your hips or elsewhere and it may be true.  There can be drastic change and Cancerians are not that good with change, so be prepared for some areas of life will be different than before.  You will have total control over your life if you are not too emotional and overly sensitive.  Not everything is about you although it feels that way sometimes.  On a happier note, work seems to be going in a good direction or you have decided to change your job and find something that makes you smile while you learn something new.  Be patient with others now since there tends to be some annoyance if people take things too literally or if they do not do what they said they would.

LEO –  July 22 – August 22

Stop worrying about your finances and concentrate on other more important issues.  Dealing with friends may be an interesting turn of events.  Be considerate of what others have to say as they may be very sensitive now and will take everything as a personal attack.  Home life looks encouraging as there is much activity in the home and with your family that everything seems to be running smoothly.  Activity and communication are the keys for everyone to get along nicely.  Suggest games, chores, or family time to your loved ones so that you can all spend more time together.  Children especially want to be heard.  Paying close attention to your children now will help them feel needed and important.  Work seems to be going in a good direction although there may be lots of changes.  Change seems good at this time, so just go with the flow to see where life takes you.

VIRGO –  August 23 – September 21

Be the mediator between those who are not getting along and don’t take sides.  You will probably regret that a little later down the road. This is a great time to renew certain areas of your life or get things moving in another direction.  There is so much you want to do, but haven’t gotten around to making your dreams happen. Prioritize your time and then, organize what you need to make your project or dream come true. There may be some conflict over education or philosophies of life and perhaps travel.  If you want to take a long- distance trip, there may be someone or something that keeps you from traveling.  If you stand up for yourself, you can go on whichever trip you wish.  Even though people may be intimidated by you or you by them, just concentrate on the goal and move forward.  

LIBRA –  September 22 – October 22

To minimize the change, start redecorating or painting for the new season to get that uplifting and positive energy into your home.  Think about your financial situation and then decide how far you would like to go with your home projects.  Health issues may come to light.  If something was unclear about a condition or symptom, it seems that now you will understand what has been going on.  Also, attracting romantic partners is interesting and adventurous.  Be certain which type of person you would like to meet since it seems as if the universe is sending you many different types and letting you choose which one you feel is best for you.  Choose wisely.  You may feel somewhat stuck by some of the decisions you have to make and yet, once you make them, you feel wonderful.  

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

Then there are those who want to see what else is out there.  The third is looking to mend fences and get back to those happy times you used to have.  It may feel as if you are living under a cloud lately, but things will pick up soon.  Make informed decisions and be sure you are making important decisions with your common sense and not your emotions.  If you use emotions, those decisions will be wrong.  You may be overly emotional, sensitive and upset for no reason now or at the very least, a very minute reason.  It’s a time where you have to figure out what to do with your finances for the future and how to balance your partner’s and your money so that you could live comfortably for many years to come.  It’s a time where you should buy what you need and not what you want, so that you have cash in reserve.  This may be a good time to get away or at the very least make travel plans for your vacation.  Choose somewhere that is nature oriented and very quiet.  

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

You try to say that everything is okay, but you are not the same person you were a year ago.  More things bother you and those around you seem to notice.  What a great time to start a new healthy eating habit as well as some new exercise routines.  Walking around the neighborhood with your dog or friendly neighbor will help your blood pressure return to normal and will make you calmer and more grounded.  Try not to over think things too much since you really aren’t relaxing by trying to figure out the same things over and over again in your head.  Spirituality, religion or metaphysics are all possibilities of areas that can help you feel like part of the human race.  You are connected, but sometimes you don’t feel as if that is true. Friendships need to be nourished and a good way to do that is to spend some time with your closest friends and visit family more often.  They miss you and would like to connect with you.  Be open to going out to the movies, to dinner or anywhere your friends would like to go.  Have fun. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Talking to those who are making you concerned or sad will help you uncover what he or she was hiding from you.  This is a time for dramatic changes, for the rug to be pulled out from a few of you and for you to get your life in order.  Start following what you want to be doing rather than what others expect you to follow.  This is your time to make the life you’ve always wanted for yourself.  It may seem like a manic/depressive type of month since you seem to be happy and then for no reason, you turn around and are sad or miserable.  You are not quite sure why, but it will be like this roller coaster for a short while until you get a handle on what’s happening around you.  It’s not you.  Thinking with a clear head and as much logic and intelligence that you can muster, you will understand that all things have to change and some people have to be left behind if they are not supposed to follow you into the future.  

AQUARIUS –  January 19 – February 17

Even though you are not destitute, you are being very cautious with your money as you want it to last a very long time.  Remember to buy what you need. You are doing well at work and may even get a raise or promotion soon.  Someone is noticing your abilities at work and will recommend you for these changes.  You are doing too much work for the salary you are receiving and are always exhausted from all the responsibility and long days.  In your personal life, it looks like there may be someone special in your life (or coming shortly), and you will fall head over heels in love with this person.  Be careful not to rush things along and make sure you find out everything you need to know about this romantic significant other as you tend to be a bit vulnerable now.  Your mind is also segmented now and you seem to be worrying about too many things and what could go wrong. 

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Make the conscious effort to educate yourself until you feel better about yourself and your knowledge.  If you start to make plans to travel abroad, you will be meeting many new people in foreign countries who will most likely be your good friends for a long time to come.  It would be a great idea to volunteer to have a foreign exchange student as well, if you have the time and means to do it.  You are very sensitive; however, now it seems as if you are holding your own and taking care of business.  You are smarter, stronger, and more confident and feel as if you can accomplish anything that is put before you.  Luck is also on your side this month, so you want to start or finish as many projects as you can so that the luck will be there with you throughout the process.  Many of your opinions and thoughts change and you tend to be more serious about the things you believe in.  You study many more subjects and you want to learn everything you can about so many things.  If you have a favorite topic or hobby that you would like to learn more about, this is the time to do it!

March Horoscopes 2018

Important Dates:  March 8, International Women’s Day; March 11, Daylight Saving Time begins; March 17, St. Patrick’s Day; March 20, Vernal Equinox; March 25, Palm Sunday; March 30, Good Friday; and March 31, Passover.

Which Element Colors Your Child?

Your child falls into one of these four groups: Fire, Earth, Air and Water. Depending upon which element your child’s sun sign is in will determine the attributes and opportunities that will be available in your child’s life. Other children of the same element would be your child’s best match for a friend during these tender years. In general, Fire and Air are also very compatible with each other, as is Earth with Water. For educators and teachers, I have been keeping record of many teachers who have taken my advice and placed same element children in groups for school work or at play time. They excel and accomplish things easily and effortlessly because they are of like mind and have the same energy to follow through with a particular task or project. There is also less confusion, stress, arguments or hurt feelings because all are working from their particular element’s strengths to get the job done well.

FIRE SIGNS (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) are leaders, take control of situations and need to feel important. They tend to lose interest in goals and dreams as soon as they are bored with them, so it is important to keep a wide variety of activities, hobbies and toys at their disposal. These children would do best being enrolled in any of the sports or activities in which they show an interest; however, be clear that whichever they sign up for must be completed.

EARTH SIGNS (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) like to do detailed work and never like to be in the spotlight. They can sometimes be very temperamental and stubborn; however, this stems from their lack of self-esteem and need for compliments and consistency. Earth signs would do very well being exposed to Rubik’s Cube and other brain expanding activities. They love to figure things out.

AIR SIGNS (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) need lots of books, TV, computers and phones since they are the communication signs and need to be interacting with people all of the time. They also need their own play time and space. They are very intellectual and logical in an out of the box sort of way. Their ideas are original and should be given serious consideration and thought.

WATER SIGNS (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) are the artistic signs which need to express themselves artistically through writing, painting, singing and dancing, etc. They are extremely sensitive and emotional and need structure to be able to pursue their dreams. They are the most compassionate, empathetic and emotional of all the signs and should be handled delicately and lovingly.

The sun will go into Aries on March 20.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Your interest in getting out of the house and doing something exciting after being thwarted by the winter becomes a priority.  There also seems to be many frustrations and limitations in home life that you wish to handle and change.  Relationships are going in a different direction.  You want to find people who can reciprocate your generosity and want to start receiving instead of always being the giver.  Many karmic lessons may be learned; once you realize that the only thing constant in life is change – you will be in a different mindset to attract new opportunities and embrace the fun.

TAURUS – ’April 18 – May 19

Your career seems to be doing very well with all of the changes going on around you.  Keep planning for your future.  Dealing with many issues now keeps your mind racing in many directions.  You need to slow down, make a list and follow it.  You are too scattered so organize your time so you can think through carefully.  Money seems to be an issue so careful budgeting makes sense now as it seems there will be unusual or unexpected expenses in the weeks ahead.

GEMINI – “ May 20 – June 20

This should be a very spiritual cycle for all Gems who have been having a difficult time in many areas.  The eclipses have not been as positive as you would have liked so this is more of a time for planning, organizing, foundation work, changes in thinking processes and attracting new, positive energy.  This is a time to study metaphysics and parapsychology as well as take new classes of your choice.  Creativity is your way out of this crazy time.  Do artwork or photography.  Get out and be creative and flexible and by doing that, you will start to change the vibrations around you to a more positive and loving nature.

CANCER –  June 21 – July 21

This is a good time for Cancerians to make some positive moves whether it is in business or school.  What a great time for many opportunities to be presented to you and the good news is, no matter which opportunity you grab, it will be the right one for you.  Adversely, if you don’t grab onto opportunities, they will pass you by and never return. Be prepared for partnership issues if your stubborn side rears its ugly head.  You are too kind to let others be harmed in any way, but shield yourself from being emotionally drained.  Love issues may be tricky now so just be a good listener and think about your responses before you answer.

LEO –  •July 22 – August 22

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

VIRGO –  August 23 – September 21

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

LIBRA –  September 22 – October 22

There are so many obstacles, concerns, issues, limitations and responsibilities that you need to handle and you feel as if you may never get from under all of these obligations in one piece.  The good news is “you will!”  You may feel somewhat depressed from time to time until you adjust to the fact that this is a transitory feeling.  It will be gone before you know it, so just concentrate on your goals and more forward.  You can be super sensitive now and feel as if no one understands you. Partnerships can be overwhelming, but you can listen to your partner’s concerns and try to be more patient and all will be fine.

SCORPIO – ˜ October 23 – November 21

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

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Taking care of your health is very important this month. Health needs to improve; your vitality is down and it may just be that you are trying to accomplish too much and not giving yourself enough rest and time to unwind.  If you are concerned about a health issue, go to your healthcare professional for a checkup.  You may be anxious about career issues so just try to do your job and be a bit more flexible when it comes to your work.  There may be some changes in your workload, so be prepared for it by resting and eating properly.  Exercise and a healthy meal plan would be extremely helpful to you now.  Try it.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

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

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17

Travel plans may be coming together for later in the year.  You want to get out of your everyday routine and see exotic places or at the very least, just get away from your current surroundings for a weekend or a few days. This is also a good time to add creativity with the hope of relaxing to your otherwise very crazy life.  There will be lots of time for creating works of art, writing down important events in your life and even figuring out what the future has in store for you. There is a new road ahead of you filled with wonder, new beginnings and wonderful possibilities.  You will succeed in all that you do this month, if you actually get out and do it.

PISCES – œ  –  February 18 – March 19

New romance is a possibility as well as continued good luck blessing you. Others find you sexually attractive now so try date more. You feel that you are more attractive and in shape and want to continue with improving yourself on so many levels, mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically. If you are holding onto a job or relationship just because “it is comfortable,” it is time for you to make a change.  Stop living in a comfortable life and take a chance to see how life can help you.  Let things go that no longer serve or help you in any way.  New beginnings are coming.

January Horoscopes 2018

Important Dates:  January 1, New Year’s Day; January 15, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day; and January 31, Lunar Eclipse in Leo.

Ever hear the expression, “Once in a blue moon?”  A blue moon is when a month has two full moons which seems to come around every year and a half. 

Remember, as I say every January, the astrological dates may be different for each sun sign than your original birth sign.  Every year, a few signs move one day before or after the date of particular signs the year before.  You are still the sun sign you were originally born.

New Year, New Beginnings

Every New Year’s Eve most people make up a list of New Year resolutions.  Many of them are a testimony to the intent of the individual.  I will eat more healthily; I will be kinder to everyone.  I will be patient; I will help out with more charities and/or church outreach programs, etc.

Think of New Year as a virgin chart or map that can take many unexpected turns; it can have highways, interstates, small town dirt roads with one light or cities with a stop light at every block.  You pave the way for your life to unfold in the New Year.  Saying you are going to do this or that is very commendable, but most resolutions don’t last more than two weeks.  These are your goals or aspirations to make yourself a better person, but many resolutions are a complete turnaround to who you truly are.  It’s kind of hard to keep on that new unexplored road.  Why not just let the year unfold before you and then deal with each opportunity or challenge as it comes along.  We really don’t know what changes or obstacles lie ahead of us, but the only thing that can define us as a positive person is how we react to the situation that is unraveling around is.  Will you freak out? Will you blame others?  Will you be there for someone who needs your guidance or help or will you just let them drown in the negative circumstances around them and walk away? The New Year is like baby energy.  Everything is new, everything is a different experience.  You learn by dealing with each instance or circumstance individually and then learn through experience as to whether it was a positive or negative event that you would want to repeat or not.  You can gently coax life into a specific direction or towards a particular outcome, but it is rare that you can totally change the whole experience.

Don’t try to drastically change yourself.  You are you for a reason.  You may wish to alter one or two of your more negative qualities, if you’d like, but the New Year gives you new reasons and fresh ideas about what you may wish to have in your future and what you may wish to avoid.  Start there first and then plan on being the best person you can be and that’s all you need to do to enjoy your 2018 New Year.  Happy New Year to all.

Planets in the morning sky Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn from the 8th.
Planets in the night sky None.
Retrogrades Uranus goes direct on the 3rd.
The sun will go into Aquarius on the 19th.


ARIES –  March 20 – April 18

There will be some unexpected surprises during the New Year month.  Expect everything and you won’t be surprised when it happens.  Partnerships need a romantic boost and perhaps some more activity in whichever way the two of you have fun.  Get out and enjoy yourselves.  Even though the holidays have been exhausting, you two need alone time together.  Work will continue to go well and friends will be as supportive as ever.  Try to do some new things such as writing, artwork, crafting, or attending a few new classes on new subjects you always wanted to try.

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

There is so much you want to do and you don’t know what to do first.  First off, relax and chill now that the holidays are behind you.  Spending time with family and friends for the holidays were exhausting, but you had a great time renewing old friendships and catching up on family happenings.  Being mindful of your budget would be a good thing since you may have spent a bit more money than you had anticipated on holiday gifts and travel.  Some issues with your partner may overwhelm or confuse you, but don’t jump to conclusions.  Everything will work out for the best interest of the two of you.

GEMINI – “ May 20 – June 20

Getting finances in order would be a good task for the New Year.  Start saving a little bit extra, if possible, and pay down those credit cards or store charges.  You don’t need that kind of pressure hanging over your head.  In the meantime, get back into your studies, whether it’s research for formal education or personal curiosity.  Teaching some of the subjects you know well will bring in some additional income that will be a blessing.  Writing, sewing, crocheting or art would be perfect pastimes for those cold winter nights.  Get those creative juices flowing again. Getting close with family and friends will help you to deal with the winter easier and force to get you out of the house.

CANCER –  June 21 – July 21

Home life becomes more important now even though things have slowed down after the holidays.  You may want to redecorate your home or think about indoor painting to change the feel of your home.  More time is spent with your partner and children and you will have more time to go out to lunch or dinner and find out what they have been up to.  Your career may be a bit demanding, but with some shifting of priorities, you will have all the time you need to be with the ones you love.  Some minor issues with your partner may make you a bit stressed, but it will be short lived.  Taking care of yourself and what you need for the new year is of major importance. 

LEO – July 22 – August 22

It’s time to stop worrying about others and take care of yourself, your goals, dreams, and aspirations.  Friends look to you for guidance, but it would be so nice if you could talk to others about your issues for a change.  You hold too much negativity inside from everyone telling you their sad stories.  Release this negative energy by prayer, burning white sage or meditation.  You need to attract more positive energy now and do not need to be constantly surrounded by negative vibrations or people.  Extensive changes are going on within you.  Deal with the things in your life that make sense to you and that you want to follow or do.  Now is the time to start fresh in making others know that you will help when you can, but you may not always be available because you are taking care of yourself for a change.

VIRGO – August 23 – September 21

After all the pressures of the holidays and you wanting everything to go perfectly, it is a time to relax and replenish your energy.  It is also a time to seriously take care of your health and that might include a yearly physical if you have been putting it off or getting a symptom looked at by a health care professional.  Delve back into metaphysics or esoterica. Organize your thoughts in a journal which would be helpful in understanding some things you have gone through.  Taking note of your dreams would also be helpful.  It seems you are looking for answers and this may help.  Spirituality is at the forefront of the year for you so make the most of it.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

What a lucky time for you.  Things are going in a very good direction and can only get better.  Even if life throws you some curve balls, you will come through them just fine.  Partnerships are important now so make sure you are tending to the one you love.  If not in a relationship, this may be the perfect opportunity to make your intention known to the universe that you want a romantic significant other that would be in both your best interests.  You are ready to have a serious relationship, so keep the door open on that issue.  You may be trying to reinvent yourself and may want to spice up your life with a makeover, new hairdo, new hair color or new makeup.  Go for it.  It’s fun to make these little changes as they give us a new spark to attract others to you.

SCORPIO  October 23 – November 21

This is a perfect time to get all of your priorities in order.  You may be doing more thinking than doing at this time, but when your list of things to do is completed, you will be motivated to start getting things done.  Good luck is blessing you now in relationships and anything that you have a partner in, whether it is with family, friends or co-workers.  A collaboration would have positive results.  Share your ideas at work and with those closest to you and accept help in making them come to fruition.  This is a time to shine, so think about what you really want to do in this new year and start making plans to make them come true.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

After the holidays, organize your finances and it would be to your benefit to save more than you have in the past. You never know when that rainy day will appear and you will be prepared. Also, update your important papers, bank accounts, wills and life insurances for revised beneficiaries so that your wishes will be carried out when the time rolls around.  It seems to be a time where you may be misunderstood so be sure that everyone understands your intent.  Small quarrels might arise from misunderstandings, so be sure that doesn’t happen and be very clear about what you mean.  Many unexpected changes in your way of thinking or your belief systems may be confusing at first, but all will make sense to you and you will be happy with the results.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

So much energy around you and so little time!  You want to do everything and try new things and get out of a rut you may have recently felt that you were in.  New energy for in-depth study, putting your whole being into new subjects or areas of life, and just enjoying yourself is at hand.  You may even feel the need to improve your romantic relationship or look for one as this is the time when things in this area seem very important to you.  Taking things more seriously than before is also a change that you will feel, not that you haven’t been serious about life before, but you are more aware of what you want to accomplish to make your life complete and you are ready to do what it takes.

AQUARIUS –  January 19 – February 17

So much is going around you.  You have been in a whirlwind that you haven’t had time to take a breath and do anything for yourself.  This is a good time to relax, rejuvenate and refresh your goals and dreams for the upcoming year.  Start handling one small personal thing at a time and you will be surprised at how much you will have accomplished within a week, month or year.  Other areas, such as work, will continue to be busy, but it seems you have a handle on it.  Just be sure to leave work at a normal hour from time to time, you do need a personal life as well.  Perhaps deciding on getting a romantic partner who would be a good influence on you to have some fun. It’s just a thought, but one that I think would make you happy and look forward to the new year.

PISCES – œFebruary 18 – March 19

There is a lot of energy focusing on secrets, hidden truths and perhaps some people who are outright lying to you, so double check information gotten from others before you make decisions based on their half-truths.  Gossip will only get you into trouble now, so use your intellect to squash rumors no matter how juicy they seem.  If not, they will come back to haunt you in some way. Spirituality may have recently been pushed to the side. Perhaps meditation or prayer would also be a good way of getting back into your belief system.  Be sure you are getting enough rest and eating properly so that your health stays satisfactory. If you feel some additional exercise is warranted, by all means, add that to your 2018 goals.

Solar Eclipses

Any eclipse will have a dramatic impact on your life and that of your family, so be prepared.

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 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 Sun Sign

by and Vikki Anderson (c) 2011.

ARIES: The Ram. This sign rules the head and is an ambitious and successful sign.

Keywords are: active, impulsive, aggressive, naive, leader, optimistic, rash, self-centered and enthusiastic.  Arians are lovely people who like to take the lead in any situation.  They would rather be the center of attention than being “behind the scenes.”  They are idea people, but their attention span in every day matters and love may be fleeting. Being interested in so many things, they rarely have the time to look into anything in-depth.  Arians love to travel, have fun, meet new friends and especially like to meet new people of varied cultures and in general is interested in anything until they get bored with it.  Love is another issue with Aries.  They can be in love with love and when reality sets in, they are amazed at how they could have thought they loved their partner.  However, once they find true love, they can be one of the most loving, caring, giving and positive partners anyone could ever want. This sign is very good at coming up with answers so ask your Aries friend or family member for advice.  I know you will always get the appropriate answer.

Mars: is the planet of energy, sex drive, temper, competition, personal power, passion, leadership, conflict, strength, anger, courage, competition, assertion and motivation.

This planet represents the God of War and Conflict – Aries.  Mars shows us how we respond to conflict and challenges in our lives.  Many Arians have scars or injuries to their face or head.  This area should always be protected.

Quality * Cardinal:  Changeable, ambitious and active.

Element: Fire represents someone who is outgoing, optimistic, energetic, creative, impulsive, passionate, arrogant, selfish, impatient, spontaneous and warm.

Other fire signs are Leo and Sagittarius which are Aries’ best matches.

Aries is a semi-fruitful sign. * Polarity: Masculine/Positive * Gemstone:  Bloodstone * Opposite Sign:  Libra.

Pisces Sun Sign Description


PISCES – February 18 – March 19

This sign rules the feet and is a mutable water sign of negative polarity. The symbol is two fish swimming in opposite directions; they do not notice what the other is doing.  One is spiritual and the other handles the mundane. Keywords are: idealist, subconscious, subtlety, receptive, inspirational, higher self, dreams, mystery, illusion, unconscious, intuitive, compassionate, emotional, escapist, story tellers, imaginative and sensitive.  These are the dreamers of the zodiac. Sometimes, they would rather see what they want to see and hear what they want to hear instead of dealing with the hard truth. However, many can be inspired artists, poets, actors, writers and visionaries.  At their worst, this sign can be one of the best con artists, liars, and forgers.  Stereotypically, Pisceans lead a varied life of helping those around them, and never learn how to receive from others.  Consequently, they will certainly repeat this karmic lesson in many future lifetimes until they value their own self worth.  They can get easily stressed, overwhelmed and exhausted.  Boundaries and limitations must be established to protect good mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health.  This is also one of the most intuitive and spiritual of all the signs.

Colors:  Sea greens

NEPTUNE represents: the subconscious, creativity and psychic ability.  It allows one to connect with the spiritual world and intuition on a deep level.  This planet is also associated with goals, ideas and an idealistic view of the world.  It also represents seeing things through rose colored glasses.  Neptune is a planet of illusion and delusion.

Planet represents the God of the Sea – King Neptune.

Quality * Mutable:  adaptable, versatile, intellectual, flexible, varied interests, always has many projects going on at the same time, always on the go, always needs to have the last word, talkative and inventive.  Other Mutable signs are Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius.

Element * Water: emotional, empathetic, psychic abilities, supportive, lazy, unbalanced, impractical, emotional, creative, secretive, deep and depressed. Other water signs are Cancer and Scorpio which are Pisces’ best matches.

Pisces is a fruitful sign. * Polarity: Feminine/Negative * Gemstone:  Amethyst * Opposite Sign: Virgo

This sign can be a workaholic, but is also one of the sucker signs (too giving, too caring, too loving, too kind, too generous, too honest and will eventually become a door mat if boundaries are not set).   The old adage is, “If you can’t get along with an Aquarian, you probably aren’t worth knowing.”  They are lovely souls who try to help everyone and really have trouble saying no.  This sign will be the first to help out anyone and will give their last nickel to someone in need.  As a good friend to them, you should not take advantage of their kindness.  They need more limitations and boundaries.

Colors:  Iridescent blues

Are You Living In The Perfect State For You?

by Vikki Anderson

Have you ever noticed that when you are on vacation or just traveling through a particular state, you can be more relaxed, creative, and your energy is renewed? There is a calmness or unexplainable peace surrounding you. Sometimes you feel one with the environment (nature) and other times no matter how many good times you had, you are glad to get back home. Another indication of a good state for you (while on vacation) is to see if problems occur when you are there. I have one friend who goes on vacation to a particular state each year and gets injured playing golf, falling off curbs and breaking bones or the weather is horrendous for the week of her vacation. These are simple clues to help you decide that this particular area may not be for suitable to your vibrations, you and your well-being.

In doing astrology over the years, I have rarely met anyone who takes state sun signs into account. Knowing what sun sign an individual state is can help improve peoples’ lives, mental outlook and prosperity. In many cases moving across country, or just to another state, helps an individual dramatically change his/her life; however, this is not necessarily the case all of the time because someone may have chosen a state in the same sun sign of the state they had just left without knowing it. Or they may move to a state that squares or opposes their sun sign and this would create more obstacles and challenges for them to overcome than the original state they had recently left.

When moving to another state, the chart changes; planets that were restrictive or causing too much conflict may move into another house in the chart and ease that area of life that was causing the anxiety or worry. An ascendant may be changed a few degrees or into a totally different sign which would allow the person to perhaps handle situations in a more calm, logical or creative manner than before. There are so many possibilities and I have seen dramatic differences in my clients’ lives that I know it works.

The easiest way I have found for people to know if they are living in their “perfect” state has been to live in a state that has your sun sign. Being a Gemini, it was no surprise that when I vacationed in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, I always had a wonderful time even if I had nothing specific to do. When one is in harmony with nature and the vibrational patterns in the environment around you, you are on the right path in your journey. This will lead to happiness, joy and contentment. One day in the future, I may even move to South Carolina because I feel so at home when I am there.

However, if you are planning to move and do not think you would like the states listed in your sun sign; you may always pick a trine state. For instance, in the chart below, if you are a water sign, let’s say Scorpio, your trine states would be in Cancer or Pisces. In turn, if you are a Pisces, your trine signs would be Cancer and Scorpio as indicated in the chart. Trine signs are the same element as your sun sign. You would also get along very well with these particular zodiac sun signs. Squares are three sips from your sun sign in either direction and oppositions are the signs exactly opposite or 180 degrees from your sign. It would be best to stay away from making these particular states your home. An alphabetical listing of the states and their sun signs is listed below.

( are 180 degrees or six signs apart)

These signs oppose each other which means they are opposite each other – usually there is an attraction for a short period of time and then the differences surface and there will be less and less attraction afterwards.

Aries Libra
Taurus Scorpio
Gemini Sagittarius
Cancer Capricorn
Leo Aquarius
Virgo Pisces

States & Their Sun Signs

Alabama – Sagittarius Alaska – Capricorn
Arizona – Aquarius Arkansas – Gemini
California – Virgo Colorado – Leo
Connecticut – Capricorn Delaware – Sagittarius
District of Columbia – Sagittarius Florida – Pisces
Georgia – Capricorn Hawaii – Leo
Idaho – Cancer Illinois – Sagittarius
Indiana – Sagittarius Iowa – Capricorn
Kansas – Aquarius Kentucky – Gemini
Louisiana – Taurus Maine – Pisces
Maryland – Taurus Massachusetts – Aquarius
Michigan – Aquarius Minnesota – Taurus
Mississippi – Sagittarius Missouri – Leo
Montana – Scorpio Nebraska – Pisces
Nevada – Scorpio New Hampshire – Cancer
New Jersey – Sagittarius New Mexico – Capricorn
New York – Leo North Carolina – Scorpio
North Dakota – Scorpio Ohio – Pisces
Oklahoma – Scorpio Oregon – Aquarius
Pennsylvania – Sagittarius Rhode Island – Gemini
South Carolina – Gemini South Dakota – Scorpio
Tennessee – Gemini Texas – Capricorn
Utah – Capricorn Vermont – Pisces
Virginia – Cancer Washington – Scorpio
West Virginia – Gemini Wisconsin – Gemini
Wyoming – Cancer

*There are no Aries or Libra States

(120 degrees apart)

Trines are the best aspect you can have. It is your same element, i.e., Fire, Earth, Air or Water. Whatever you are.


You would also never want to move to a state that would be in conflict with your natal sun. These aspects are called squares or oppositions. These sign would be listed as follows:

(90 degrees apart)

Squares are listed in each column, i.e., Aries squares Cancer, Cancer squares Libra, etc. Squares cause frustration and aggravation. It’s like hitting your head against a brick wall over and over again!

Cardinal Fixed Mutable
Aries Taurus Gemini
Cancer Leo Virgo
Libra Scorpio Sagittarius
Capricorn Aquarius Pisces

It would not be in your best interest to move to any of the states in the column which your sun sign appears. For instance, if you were a Leo, you would not want to move to a Taurus, Scorpio, or Aquarius state.

Ancient Paths, Modern Choices

Ancient Paths, Modern Choices
by Vikki Anderson


I have been teaching and conducting workshops for decades in both astrology and tarot, have one tarot book out and writing another. I am always asked the same questions. What’s better, tarot or astrology? Is there a difference? Is one better than the other? Is one more accurate? The answer is that it all depends on what type of guidance they are seeking.

Let’s start with astrology since I have been reading charts since I was fourteen years old and am now sixty-three. Astrology has been my life. The natal chart is almost like a doctor’s file on a patient. Everything that is positive or negative is in it. It contains many different aspects of one’s personality, how well or poorly you react to emotional situations or crisis, your intellectual abilities, why relationships succeed or fail and generally if you are the kind of person that others want to know or have as a friend. The houses of the chart tell different areas of life that are affected, for instance, the first house represents the personality you show to the world or the one you want to show to the world and not necessarily the true one; the second represents your money or material values while the third represents communication, short trips, siblings, etc. Twelve distinct areas of life are covered. Depending upon which planets are in that house, what sign(s) are in the house and what aspects hit that house, the personality is formed. Throughout the years with the planets moving forward (or progressing) from your birth chart (which was a map of the sky at the time of your birth), one’s personality, likes, dislikes, intelligence, relationships and reactions to situations change. Adding in solstice points and solar eclipses which usually occur twice a year (lunar eclipses are best used for Cancerians or Cancerian Ascendant natives), the next six months can be forecasted. Many different possibilities are touched upon as the planets and aspects represent a vast variety of probabilities. One must remember, however, that we choose our own future. We make a million decisions throughout our lifetimes that change our future day by day. Planets and aspects can stand for many different alternatives. When the sun and moon on an “eclipse” day falls into a particular house, that house is activated and an astrologer knows what would be in store for the native throughout the next six months. I usually tell my students that whatever happens on an “eclipse” day will represent the next six months of your life. For example, I recommend spending money on the eclipse so you will have money to spend for six months; be with friends and family you wish to see throughout the next six months; go to work as students who thought they would take it easy the next six months, did exactly that. They lost their jobs since they weren’t working on the eclipse! Think. Complete lists of projects, affirmations or goals. Plan for the next six months. I usually find it helpful to get things in order before an eclipse and then read the list in a positive manner on the eclipse so that the universe will set the stage for your next six months in a very logical and organized manner.

In order to make a competent prediction, an astrologer would know the meanings of the houses, planets and aspects affecting the “eclipse” planets and how they aspect the natal and progressed planets. Simplified, if one has more positive aspects such as sextiles or trines, life within the next six months will be more calm, relaxed, focused, organized and fulfilling without many obstacles. The more squares and oppositions the updated chart has, the more challenges and obstacles might be before the person you are reading. But whether the outcome is a positive or negative one, truly depends on the overall outlook. Obstacles or challenges may be for the native to learn some particular lesson or start handling responsibility, etc.

So in essence, astrology gives you a road map to your life year by year. Once given a road map, one can decide to get to any destination in many ways, by plane, train, bus, car, motorcycle or boat. There are also different roads to a destination, the super highways of life, the interstates, the local roads or back country dirt roads. All lead to a certain destination, however, the path is altered by the mode of transportation and the route one chooses. Remember as in any modality, you have complete control over your life and destiny.

Tarot is basically a different method or concept of predicting the future. First of all, the cards explain what will happen if you do nothing to change the situation. If there was something perceived to be negative by the Querent (person for whom you are doing the reading), it will stay negative unless that person takes a positive action to change the event or circumstances. You are always given options and choices.

One can do various spreads to predict what will happen in a day, week, month, year or particular time period in the future. Most of the spreads can pin point an exact month by month prediction in addition to an overall view of the current situation and how one will handle those situations. Tarot can let you know particular occurrences, obstacles or love with a glance of the cards; it can give you definitive yes or no answers to exact questions as well. The remaining cards in the yes/no spread will also shed more insight into your current situation. Remember that we can change anything we don’t like in the cards if we know what message the card is giving us. Whether we take that information to use to our benefit is our choice.

By using the tarot, one can get an immediate answer to a question and insight into a situation or circumstance and know what to do to change that situation to their benefit. Tarot shows you when to balance your love life, money, career or. It foretells what you must do to correct these areas of life. It often gives us not only the mundane solutions to life, but tells us of the spiritual path we must also follow to be happy in this lifetime.

Tarot suggests blessings from God after going through changes; it tells when one must rest so that the Querent could be protected from an illness or concern with the proper rest and care of himself or herself. Tarot helps build character because it gives the Querent something to fight with. It paves the way for an adaptive attitude towards conflicts, obstacles and concerns. Tarot uses a variety of scenery, backgrounds, figures, and colors to portray each card’s meaning. Sometimes adding one’s knowledge about numerology helps give added meanings to the cards although one can get a feel for the cards just by looking at it. This cannot be done in astrology. If the person has no practical knowledge of the planets, houses and aspects, an astrological interpretation cannot be properly done. It would look like Egyptian to the person — without meaning.

Tarot can also prepare one for issues that need balance in order to be happy or fulfilled – it could represent balance in a relationship (is one partner too dominant and the other too submissive?), money (spending too much and not saving enough?), career (is it really necessary to work 12 hour days? What about time with the family?), and conflicts (can I ride these conflicts out? Should I settle them peacefully? Can I handle what is ahead of me? Is there an end in sight?). Just by adding some common sense and a time frame, one can look into the future and know what must be done to correct any negative situation.

Astrology charts, although very automated now and can be called up on a computer and printed in a few minutes, are extremely difficult to interpret properly. Massive reports can be generated with all types of probabilities for the next year. The reports are so long (usually 50+ pages) because there are so many variables. If you make a decision today or now, you change the future from a few moments ago.

Tarot usually takes anywhere from one hour to an hour and a half to read properly. Astrology can take long hours to decipher and then read to the native. Reference for planet configurations (some use asteroids as well) must be used and placed in the chart and then one must go through each planet of the natal chart, progressed chart and how it affects the natal chart. Many combinations can actually make other configurations of planets better or worse by being in aspect with several planets at the same time. You can guide through astrology and then you have to wait to see if the future comes true. With tarot, you are taking an active role in your future by knowing what will come up and how to alter the outcome for the most positive result for the good of all involved.

I feel tarot is more like psychology. It highlights the problem or concern indicated by the number of cards in a particular suit, and gives you many alternatives to deal with it. Each card also has an answer in it.

Although I love both astrology and tarot, I would imagine it depends on the type of information you are looking for. If you want a very philosophical view of yourself, your character, moods, emotional status, likes, dislikes and the general road map to your life with the next year, then astrological charts are for you. Remember that one does not need to have a chart done more than twice a year. I usually place both eclipses in a chart for a year’s reading, so that my clients need only return once a year for the upcoming year’s events.

Tarot is a useful guidance tool since it can give you the areas of your life causing concern, gives answers to deal with anything from the four suits indicating the problem or challenge.

Remember that we have total and complete control over our lives and the decisions we make. No one can make those choices for us. Tarot is an easier and gives more practical answers to the year ahead; astrology gives us an overview of what is to come and makes us think of all the possibilities and consequences ourselves.

Both are fun, both are guidance tools and both can be very dangerous if used for negative purposes. Never go to a reader who says there is a curse on you; there are no curses, only fear that overtakes us and makes us vulnerable. You do not need to go for readings more than twice a year although once a year is also very accurate and lighting candles and prayers by a reader will not help rid you or your family of the curse usually for a large sum of money. Get references of a tarot reader or astrologer from a reputable new age shop or ask friends or family who they consider to be a reputable reader. Is the price fair? Are they trying to use scare tactics? Are they reading with insight, helpful suggestions and giving positive guidance. No one can or should light a candle for you. Some readers charge ridiculous amounts to burn a candle for you, if they are doing it at all. Spend $1 and light one for yourself in a church! Also, never give any readers large sums of money in cash! I had a client who gave $20,000 to one of these readers in a very vulnerable and depressed state, and then she asked for her deceased husband’s jewelry to also take the curse off of that too. However, the woman was wearing my clients jewelry when she went for another reading. For the $20,000, she got 7 readings and a future with no money and a lost sense of pride and a desperate feeling of hopelessness and helplessness. It seems to be my crusade to steer people in the right direction when it comes to reputable readers. It is not acceptable to have a few greedy and unscrupulous charlatans ruin the path for the rest of us.

Whether you read tarot or astrology, keep your message clear, optimistic and focused. Anyone can change the future. We have the right to mold and shape our own destiny as God intended. Take your future and mold it into something you would be proud of.

Some think astrology is all right to have done while attending a tarot reading is the work of the devil. People — these are useful guidance tools that God gave his people here on earth so we could guide others who have temporarily lost their way or needed some insight into the future. There is no witchcraft involved in these predictive modalities. They are subjects, which are studied and practiced like anything else to become good at it.

Give them a chance, and I believe they will surprise you with their accuracy, their insight and the level of philosophical awareness that is given you.

Also, it is much easier to predict time periods with tarot than it would be in astrology. In tarot, the suits represent different months, signs or time periods. In astrology, one must rely on their intuition (and some help from the progressed moon) to predict when something will happen.
