New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo — August 11th 2018

A New Moon Solar Eclipse has a massive amount of energy so that it begins a new lunar cycle that will influence the next six months. This will be especially true if you have the Sun, Moon or Planet at 18 degrees of the sign Leo or opposite in the same degree of Aquarius. Of course, the effect it has will depend on which Zodiac House the Planets reside within, and whether or not it has any aspects to other Planets or the Sun and Moon. We all will have the New Moon Solar Eclipse in our Zodiac Chart and that area will bear the impact of this event. I truly believe that New Moon energy is a positive and optimistic occurrence that can bring good tidings.

On the negative side of this equation is that being in the sign Leo can empower those folks who are so inclined to become more egotistic, narcissistic and overbearing. However, there is usually a balance within the astrological landscape that will also inspire some folks to become more accepting, generous and benevolent. There is a Yin and Yang throughout the Universe that we must work with, as we try to evolve into our most noble selves.

We are being prompted to follow our kinder instincts, our heartfelt ideals and to begin to understand the purpose of our existence here, now, in this beautiful realm. Find your Bliss, be inspired to rise above the daily fray, and reconnect to your inner-child. Believe in your God-given gift of humanity and find that divine spark within your spirit.

This New Moon Solar Eclipse crests at 18 degrees of Leo, at 4:48 AM EST (adjust for DST). Your affirmations, wishes, desires and dreams can be about anything — however, working within Leo’s realm may be more productive — Self-confidence, romance, children, adventure, loyalty, creativity and just plain Fun, are all within Leo’s reign. Think about your life right now — what would truly improve your life and the lives of your loved ones.

Think carefully about how each “change” might impact your life for the better, and begin to formulate your wish list. Refine your ideas, tweak the details, and when you are sure of your wishes — try to write out your affirmations after the New Moon crests — after 4:48 AM EST. You have all day for employing the highest degree of lunar energy and power, Leo rules the Sun and therefore has rulership over the heart — use your heart in planning and writing out your wishes. This is a mighty and  powerful New Moon Solar Eclipse that will reign for several months ahead.

Plead your case for improvement as the Heavens are bestowing their finest spiritual and divine benedictions upon us. Find your personal Bliss, and find the joyful harmony in this lifetime!

Peace

Lady Venus Enters Libra — August 6th 2018

Giddy with delight as she steps over the cusp of Virgo to enter the enchanted and beautiful realm of Libra, Lady Venus radiates with joy. Moving into Libra at 6:28 PM EST (adjust for DST), and remaining in Libra until entering Scorpio on September 9th. Our Lady Venus feels the balanced and creative vibrations of Libra begin to stir Her creative juices, as She embraces the light of an inspired new day! Indeed, Lady Venus can’t wait until She is totally ensconced in Libra’s realm to really strut Her stuff.

I hope everyone got their “healthy” on whilst Lady Venus was in Virgo — because Libra is all about beauty, balance, brilliance and chocolate! Well, OK — maybe not chocolate alone, but surely about enjoying all of our senses to the max! Libra truly brings us joy as long as we remember “moderation in all things“, as my Mother used to say — over and over again. Unfortunately under Libra’s delicately structured and iridescent wing — we may be inclined to indulge in our favorite things whether food, fantasy, fun or facts! We can lavish ourselves in the beauty of Mother Nature, the fashion world, romance, all manner of decoration, and yes food. We find we are more attuned to the loveliness that surrounds us on a day-to-day basis, and yet can find excitement and delight in the extraordinary and magical world under Libras dominion.

We shall sally forth into Libra’s rarefied air with Lady Venus, to find our sensitivities heightened, our love lives enhanced, and ourselves entertained with the beauty of all that our World has to offer.

Of course, we will have the mighty energy of the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo on the 11th, along with the strength of Lady Venus in Libra, we will have more positive vibrations in the ether, in order to write out our list of affirmations, wishes and dreams.  Think about those things that would bring more beauty and benefit to yourself and to all of your loved ones.

Mercury will go Direct, ending its Retrograde motion on the 18th, at 11 degrees of Leo, and Mars will go Direct on the 27th, re-entering Aquarius on September 10th — both of these Planets will then begin to produce more positive feelings, and will be giving us more of their optimistic and constructive energy.

Starting her reign in Libra, Lady Venus and Mars enjoy each other’s company on the 7th after the dinner hour, you and a loved one may be seeing eye-to-eye, or a new friendship is blossoming, there’s a whole lot of love to go around. On the 9th, Lady Venus and Uranus might be having difficulty in communicating, during the morning hours, someone may just want what they want! Sometime you just have to let go. The 18th finds Lady Venus and Mercury in sync, about mid-morning — there are sweet sentiments said, and an artistic flare in the atmosphere — breathe in the esoteric air. On the 19th Lady Venus and Neptune link up and bring us a spiritual moment after the noon hour — you might be too idealistic, or seeing a suitor with stars in your eyes. The 22nd finds this combo again at work later in the afternoon, try to see things without the aura of wishful-thinking — be pragmatic and rational if you can. As you awaken on the 23rd, Lady Venus and Jupiter are beaming good wishes down upon us, happiness is in the air, and there is a magical sense of thankfulness and sharing the wealth. Lady Venus and Pluto are at odds on the 26th, in mid-afternoon, try to control your more intense desires, and find a way to relax with music or meditation. The end of the month brings Lady Venus into a row with the Sun, later in the afternoon, you might have to hold-your-tongue when someone irritates you. Think peaceful thoughts. On September 3rd, Lady Venus and Mercury are well-connected as you are getting into the office, be assured and confident in what you have to offer, someone charming will be impressed by your abilities. However, on the 8th in mid-afternoon, Lady Venus and Mars are not getting along, don’t try to compete with someone who is adamant about their ideas — you’ll get your chance later.

Lady Venus will enter Scorpio on September 9th at 4:26 AM EST — this is a difficult sign for Lady Venus, as Scorpio’s intensity and directness can be overwhelming to Her sensitive nature. Enjoy our Lady Venus while She transit’s lovely Libra, a much more compatible and companionable sign that makes Her happy and delightfully off-balance.

Hint — find your Lady Venus in Libra love at a flower shop, looking for the latest fashions, trying to balance her budget, falling in love at first sight, being confused about what job to take, with friends having lunch on a park bench, helping at a food pantry, trying a new hair style, at an upscale chocolate shoppe, getting take-out at Whole Foods, spending a weekend in the country and visiting a Farmer’s Market, doing tai-chi at the seashore, and visiting the latest exhibition at an art museum.

  Peace

 

 

August’s Astrological Activity — 2018

The month of August holds a Solar Eclipse on the 11th, at 18 degrees of Leo — cresting at 4:48 AM EST (adjust one hour for DST). We will be ready to start a new routine – whether for our health, or some interesting way to improve the quality of our life. However, since Mercury is still Retrograde in Leo until the 18th, it may be well to make our plans, but not begin them until several days after Mercury’s Rx effects have faded a bit. Also, later in the month on the 27th Mars will turn Direct at 9:05 AM EST at 28 degrees of Capricorn. It is as if the Heavens are preparing us for the future, with a bit of help from the stars — With the Sun in Leo until the 22nd when it goes into Virgo, we can use the sunny outlook of Leo in planning our future efforts and when the Sun enters Virgo we will have the precise motivation and wherewithal to put all of our dreams into gear.

A New Moon in Leo brings new, creative, and imaginative ideas that we may be able to work into our daily lives, or find a way to increase our income with an item who’s time has come. Think outside the box about practical and inventive things that would help us in our day-to-day chores — you might find a winner!

The Full Moon this month crests on the 26th in the sign Pisces at 3 degrees of the sign, at 6:56 AM EST. The Full Moon is not getting along with Pluto or Venus today, guard your personal information and don’t rely on someone who seems to be trying too hard to please you.

Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces is a unique time-span for we living here on Earth at this time. Neptune’s orbit takes 164 years to complete its transit of the Zodiac — when Jupiter is next in Scorpio, Neptune will have moved on into Aries! Today Neptune is bringing a spiritual awareness, divine transcendence, and a renewal of all things sacred and Neptune in conjunction with Jupiter is enhancing our awareness of the higher, more idealistic and principled manner of living our lives. Neptune and Jupiter are enhancing the beauty that surrounds us every day, they bring the subtlety of our day-to-day lives into a realm of magnificence, that we may not have taken notice of in the past. Our sensitivities and instincts are being honed to realize the majestic grandeur of this Earth and our place within it. We are being honed to take note, that for our Earth to endure in a pristine way, we as the caretakers must be aware of our responsibilities. We must be ready to make the right decisions for our World, in order that it may reign forever and ever.

The Planet Uranus in Taurus will begin Retrograde motion on the 7th, until returning Direct on January 6th 2019. We may be inclined to look within as this Planet is allowing us a time to be introspective and pensive. Taking this time to rethink our plans and perhaps find better ways of implementing them when Uranus again turns direct. Think in a transformative way, perhaps using some of the newest technological update that are always on the horizon.

August begins with an Aries Moon that can bring us a boost in our ideas and/or more physical energy. Later in the evening of the 1st Mars and Uranus aren’t getting along, try not to get too excited by someone disagreeing with you, find some common ground. On the 6th Lady Venus enters Libra, one of Her favorite signs — perhaps time to redecorate or get your daughter’s/son’s dorm room ready. The Sun and Jupiter are in a snit, around the morning rush hour, be aware of distracted drivers and use this burst of energy in a positive manner when you get into the office. Along with Uranus going Retrograde on the 7th, there is a lovely aspect between Lady Venus and Mars after the dinner hour, you and a loved one might be on the same page and life is good. Mars and Neptune are annoying one another on the 8th, try to avoid any petty squabbles, you won’t win. Lady Venus and Saturn just don’t see eye-to-eye on the 9th mid-evening, don’t try to get your way with your charming wiles, it just won’t fly. Of course, the New Moon Solar Eclipse crests on the 11th in Leo — plan ahead for writing out your affirmations with the positive energy being dispersed to help you. Mars Retrogrades back into the sign Capricorn on the 12th, putting some of our plans on hold. The 18th finds Mercury and Lady Venus in sync, about mid-morning, communicating with your loved ones should go well, and  a visit to an art show may find you with a delightful decoration for your home. In the wee hours of the 19th,Jupiter and Neptune touch base bringing vivid dreams, a brilliant idea, or pleasant memories. The Sun enters Virgo late on the 22nd, bringing a more practical outlook to our daily life and a need for more perfection. The Sun is in good aspect to both Uranus and Saturn during the afternoon hours  — you feel a sense of freedom and individuality, yet know that you must consider all practicalities when endeavoring to bring about some changes in your life. The afternoon of the 26th may be confusing as both Lady Venus and Mercury have challenges, it might be best if you can just sit at the beach and read a book, rather than try to interface with others. The month ends with Lady Venus and the Sun at odds, be careful if driving home during rush hour and don’t engage in any conflict with other drivers.

Enjoy these last few lazy days of Summer, as school will start soon (if it already hasn’t), and September will bring us the cool, crisp Autumn weather along with the extraordinary colors of the Fall here in New England. Ever changing, the months seem to fly by more quickly as the days darken — live in the light!

Peace

 

Retrograde Mercury – July 26th, and Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius – July 27th

Since there is a confluence of energy building up as the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius crests on the 27th at 3:21 PM EST (adjust for DST), and Mercury in Retrograde mode from the 26th until August 18th. The combination of these two possibly negative elements in the Galaxy will have some effect on all of us, within certain parameters according to our own Zodiac Charts.

Now, no one has to panic because we have all dealt with both of these situations before — and we have survived! So this is just a reminder to take your time driving, starting or buying anything new, and keeping up on any correspondence that you have received (all Mercury issues) — that could be affected by the more negative retrograde aspect. Mercury will be in Leo and begin retrograde on the 26th at 23 degrees of the sign and ends up on August 18th at 11 degrees of Leo. If you have the Sun, Moon or a Planet at any of these Leo degrees you may find some hiccup within this time span.

A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse has a shadow period before and after the actual crest for several weeks, so some of you may have already been feeling the emotional power as the Full Moon is coming into its fullness. The Full Moon crests in the sign Aquarius at 4 degrees — so this degree and the opposite Leo degree can be influenced by this aspect.

We all should try to be more aware of any negativity surrounding us, or any folks who seem angry or out-of-control — and avoid any confrontations. Staying cool and calm during any altercation can help to ease the severity of any conflict. Watch out for those driving distractedly, do not get involved in any road rage incidents, and be the peacemaker if you can in any negative situation.

The good news, is with all of this unrestricted energy flowing around, we may be able to find ways to use the excess vibrations to enjoy ourselves in different arenas — embrace the chaos and allow yourself to find a unique way to solve any issues, find new ways to have fun, and seek out those who seem to be able to weather any storm.

Be positive, maintain your cool, and find the beauty and magic in our magnificent world.

Peace

Uranus Enters Taurus — Through the Zodiac Houses — May 15th 2018

The unpredictable, innovative, genius, eccentric and tech savvy sign of Uranus will leave Fiery Aries on May 15th and will remain in the sign Taurus except for Retrograding back into Aries from November 6th), then returning to Taurus on March 6th 2019, and then continuing on in Taurus until April 25th 2026. The last time Uranus was in Taurus was 84 years ago in 1934. This is a major change for Uranus who isn’t fond of staid, Salt-of-the-Earth, hard-working But — Oh so cautious Taurus! Indeed, Uranus truly loves the unpredictable, exciting, adventurous and unexpected — everything that has Taurus shaking in his practical boots! How will these two ever, ever work together? That is the million dollar question — an estimate much too high for practical Taurus to even contemplate — hmm, this will absolutely be a tour-de-force for both participants. We also must remember — this is a longer time for Uranus in Taurus, as it is usually a seven year cycle. Uranus circles the Zodiac in approximately 84 years, which the ancients felt was the “normal” lifetime as Uranus would then return to each sign. I have always also considered that at age 42 (when Uranus opposes itself in our Charts), was often a time of forced change, or some watershed activity that alters our course or outlook. For those over the age of 42 (think back — between the ages of 41 to 43), you may be able to look back and remember an occurrence that opened your eyes or completely changed your life.

In the Grand scheme of all things Zodiac — both of these signs are Fixed, one (Uranus/Aquarius) Air — the other (Venus/Taurus) Earth. With the sign of the Bull in house, there will be some butting of heads — although the Water Bearer has much wisdom and strength also, still both are mightily determined to get their own way! Different methods perhaps, but the goal for each of these signs is to prevail in their own decisions and ideas. NOW — this might be a pretty even match if it were not for Uranus total unpredictability — which Taurus simply cannot abide! Taurus would much rather take all of his stuff and sit out the next seven years in one of his many real-estate holdings. However — the die is cast and the Heavens will move on, and the Planet Uranus will indeed have to deal with mundane Taurus, and Taurus will have to adjust to Uranus eccentric and unpredictable behavior! This will be one for the record books as we all will be a bit shaken up by this combination of Taurus self-reliance, steady forward motion, love of beauty, interest in banking and real-estate– and — Uranus need for adventure, shaking up the status-quo, and generally creating a bit of chaos in order to rebuild on a stronger foundation. Being Fixed signs, neither of these entities will want to give up their personal outlook and/or ideas about what is proper and required. Of course, their ideas are totally at odds with one another — and so the fun begins!

I am rather looking forward to this combination of two mighty warriors vying to outdo one another. Indeed as I, myself, have mighty Uranus in the sign Taurus on my MC — I am anticipating some outlandish circumstances within the time span of this transit. It will be a Uranus return, as it has taken 84 years for Uranus to find himself back in Taurus territory. I feel my interest in Astrology was piqued by this aspect in my chart, and combining the two has made me more practical and less likely to be overwhelmed by what is going on in the Galaxy. Hmm — well we shall see what the Universe has in store, as I have a few years before reaching my 84th year. Stay tuned!

On a world-wide scale Uranus will likely be stirring up some controversy, perhaps some “explosive” environmental happenings, economic changes (i.e. banking), real-estate adjustments, and perhaps a spiritual awakening to a higher consciousness. There will be attempts  made in our banking systems, trying to get folks to conform to the new technology, and we may be more inclined to speak up for ourselves when our personal space, morals, or identity are being impinged upon. Also the massive national debt may have to be addressed in no uncertain terms. Buckle your seat belts — we may be in for a rocky (but exciting) ride!

Now to some of the ways Uranus in Taurus will affect the individual Zodiac Houses — if you know where Taurus lives in your Chart — that will be the House that Uranus might change for the better — in the long run.

Uranus in Taurus in the First Zodiac House — herein we have our hopes and wishes, our public face, our self promotion, success in the public realm, popularity and leadership talents. People often judge us by our appearance here, and with Taurus they may think we are proper, staid and conformist — although Taurus has many facets that will “color outside the lines” — they can be invisible to others because of their need to “fit” in. Now comes along fabulous Uranus with his flair for the dramatic, need to upset the apple cart, and willingness to cause a bit of chaos in order to find a better way to integrate the Taurus persona.

Your Taurus friend, family member, or cohort may begin to find a new way of expressing him/herself — and it may be in a dynamic and entirely innovative manner that nobody saw coming! Indeed, finding themselves with a new sense of power and individuality — our neat, tidy, and conformist Taurus may begin to dress, think, and present themselves in a unique and interesting way. Physically they may have a complete makeover that projects their own new sense of self. This might be off-putting to some close family members or friends, as our newly inspired Taurus is finding their way into exotic territory! Also, opposite the 7th Zodiac House of partners, your environment and the possibility of a change in these areas.

Of course, a change may be as subtle as getting a sportier car, wearing brighter colors, or finding a new hobby or interest. Also, you may find that they are now more interested in reaching a long-term goal — whether a longed for vacation, new home, or winning the lottery! Uranus in Taurus has many ways to put his spin on your lifestyle. Be prepared to be amazed at the wonderful and exciting journey you have in store.

Uranus Surprise — A dream comes true!

Uranus in Taurus in the Second Zodiac House — our Second Zodiac House holds our self-earned monies, our inheritances and gifts, financial issues, personal belongings and possibly changing homes or buying a second residence. We may find we have either more or less spare money as prices seem to be rising, and our income may have been stagnant for a while. We may look to find new ways of increasing our income through hobbies, other interests or there is the possibility of some inheritance coming your way. Someone may want to take a chance and will back an idea that you have been working on lately. Think about how to enhance your own earned money and start to work on anything that piques your interest, talents, or abilities.

Opposite the Eighth Zodiac House of regeneration, renewal, death and taxes — there seems a serious side to Uranus in Taurus placement in your Second House. Indeed, many areas can be stirred up with Uranus sudden ability to cause change. It probably isn’t the best time to borrow money or take out loans if you can avoid it during Uranus reign in Taurus — if it is a necessity — be sure you crunch all the numbers and payment schedules so that there are no surprises (like a balloon note, payments that suddenly rise, or initially low interest rates that then become much larger). Just be sure to protect all of your assets, whether financial, personal items like jewelry, artworks, real-estate, or memorabilia.

With Uranus in Taurus in the Second House you may be in for a novel new way to earn your own money, it you are tech savvy and/or able to turn a hobby into a way to earn a living, you might find your skills are wanted and needed. Be open to any new acquaintance or old friend who gives you some leads or ideas. Perhaps you may find a mentor who sees your potential. Don’t reject any avenue that might just lead you to developing your skills or learning new ones — a simple phrase you hear or item you see on line or in the news, might serve you well. Be that innovator that you know lives within your soul and find your true calling.

Uranus Surprise — Unexpected inheritance!

Uranus in Taurus in the Third Zodiac House — the Third Zodiac House rules our neighborhood, brothers and sisters, short journeys, family announcements, your own environment, your personal ideas and moral codes, correspondence with family and friends, and learning from past mistakes. We work with our community in this area, and we are committed to keeping in touch with kith and kin. It is herein where we connect to our friends and family in order to keep our heritage and ancestral story alive and well. It is also here that there seems to be a boomerang effect, as what we give out seems to come back to us in various ways. Negativity and anger get short shrift here — and it is best to look for the beauty and kindness that helps to make our lives better. With Uranus in Taurus, there may be a fly in the ointment that we will have to deal with during its seven year stay in this sign. Perhaps a sibling isn’t doing too well, and it’s up to us to keep an eye on them. Or a neighbor may be elderly and in need of extra help or maybe just a daily phone call. Whatever we are called upon to do, we must try to live up to our highest standards.

Opposite the Ninth Zodiac House, we may be planning a long-awaited trip to visit far off relatives, or one of our children is going off to college soon. We may be questioning our religious upbringing, and we are trying to find that delicate balance between perhaps a rigid moral code and today’s modern laxness. Now is the time to search your soul for the right answers for yourself. You may have an epiphany that lets you know the most positive path for you to take, and suddenly, everything in your life seems to fall into the right place. If you have some difficulty with the law, there might be an unusual outcome that leaves you amazed and grateful for those higher authorities that cleared everything up for you.

Uranus in Taurus will bring perhaps unexpected happenings that you will have to deal with for some time, however, in the long run, you will realize that all the angst and perhaps frustration brought you greater knowledge, idealism and joy! You are in a better position to enjoy the rest of your life with your new awareness.

Uranus Surprise — The vacation of a lifetime!

Uranus in Taurus in the Fourth Zodiac House — this is such an important House, it is our foundation, our family roots, our first contact with our parents and those who would care and nurture us. Sometimes our most prominent parent (opposite the Tenth House) — our siblings and first awareness of family and traditions. Our heritage from ancestors long past — our unique sense of self and our identity, and where we feel welcome, and loved.

It is within this Fourth Zodiac House we begin to learn about morals, values, family dynamics, our basic security, our grandparents, and what is expected of us as part of the family unit, the neighborhood where we live, and our community. Opposite the Tenth Zodiac House, where we find our jobs or careers — Uranus in Taurus could bring sudden changes. Also our standing in the community and our social connections may be in for some unique opportunities. Depending on whether there are Planets in these Houses that will be in aspect with Uranus — you could find yourself on a completely new pathway. If you are in the market for new lodgings, home or a vacation hideaway — you may find some unusual help coming from outside sources. Let people know if you are looking for a job, raise, home, car, or anything that will bring some joy and perhaps more responsibility into your life.

This is such an active and important House that there could be some amazing changes that will work out for the best in the long run. Most of us don’t really like too much change — so we shy away from it. But with Uranus in Taurus in residence — you may be truly encouraged to find a new and unique way of dealing with many areas of your life now.

Uranus Surprise — You could find the home of your dreams and it’s within your budget!

Uranus in Taurus in the Fifth Zodiac House — Most of us like the Fifth Zodiac House as it holds those things that make life fun for us — children, hobbies, pleasurable pursuits, our soul mates profile, our skills and abilities, and our own self aggrandizement. Of course, herein also lies some of our most addictive issues — gambling, alcohol, our compulsions, and habits we cannot seem to control. Depending on the Planetary makeup within this House and/or any negative or positive aspects from Planets in other Houses, we can find a way to offset any negativity if we truly want to work at it full time. Unfortunately — with Uranus in Taurus in crossing this House, we may be faced with dire circumstances if we haven’t been able to control some phase of our life. Uranus may indeed bring about some unexpected happening that will make us take a long look at what we are doing — and in Taurus, there will be a reckoning if we continue on our wayward path.

However, as stated many times — the Planet Uranus doesn’t shake our lives up just to be difficult, no — Uranus is the beacon of change for the better, and in Taurus we may find we have a price to pay for our trespasses, but if we are sincere in our atonement, our lives will be improved and reinvented on a much stronger foundation. There will be helpful folks in our lives that will be sure to lead us by the hand into our new reality , our new way of thinking, and will be a light for us to follow in order to reclaim ourselves.

Now on a lighter note, Uranus in Taurus may bring about a lifelong dream, that once-in-a-lifetime vacation, hitting the lottery (don’t count on it), you may finally find you are expecting a longed-for child, you become a community hero, a hidden talent is uncovered and you are in the spotlight for your artistry. So many ways that Uranus in Taurus could bring about a positive and joyous change in your life while posited herein.

Uranus Surprise — A wished for baby — or your Soul Mate!

Uranus in Taurus in the Sixth Zodiac House — This Zodiac House is so important in our day-to-day life having rulership over our daily jobs, our health and fitness, and in opposition to the Twelfth Zodiac House, may hold some hidden secrets to our well-being, past lives and impediments to our health. With Uranus in Taurus in the Sixth House you may find your daily routine is thrown completely off because of an unexpected work issue, your health needs attention and it is important that you follow your doctors orders for rest or other treatments. Also, if you have been fighting some health-related problems, they may suddenly be improving and you are now free to live life as you wish.

If you are responsible for an elderly parent or relative you might find that you cannot continue because of their declining health issues and must find another assistance program for them. Anxiety may rise due to the conundrum of your having to make such serious decisions. Still, Uranus doesn’t bring trials for us without having a game plan in place that will allow us to once again find a safe passage forward. Even an aging pet may influence your usual routine, as you feel that you must be there for them.

The main message of Uranus in Taurus in the Sixth Zodiac House is that we must first take care of ourselves before we can begin to take care of others. If you aren’t eating properly, or getting enough exercise each week, you may have to begin to address these shortcomings and begin to take charge of your own diet and fitness. You may perhaps find a unique way of responding to your own needs — possibly a new program for yourself, yoga, meditation, tai chi, or any number of new curricula that might appeal to your inner being and spirit.

We mustn’t forget that your job, the way you earn your daily bread might be challenging — perhaps a new supervisor with new ideas, a promotion with more responsibility, or you feel restless and want something different or more challenging. Sometime that comfortable groove we have made for ourselves has become a deep and destructive rut that is eating at our psyche and our soul. With the help of Uranus in Taurus, you may find that what you’re looking for is just around the corner. Seek out those who would help you, and those who know what you have to offer.

Uranus Surprise — A clean bill of health or major raise in pay.

Uranus in Taurus in  the Seventh Zodiac House — In the Seventh Zodiac House we find our partnerships both personal and business. On the other hand it can also hold our nemesis and rivals. Alliances of many kinds can be found herein and depending on whether or not there is a Planet ensconced within this realm, or positive aspects are within its borders, we can be sure there is a lot of our life’s story to be told by this House. Opposite the 1st House (our hopes and dreams), leadership qualities and our optimistic outlook, it behooves us to be aware of those we are allowing into our life and into our realm.

Cooperation is in this House, and the more we learn how to accommodate others, the more we can influence our own lives. Of course, we don’t want to be so pliable that we don’t get those things we need and want. It is here where we can find our emotional balance and our social composure. Our mentors and even our soul-mates can be found here, however any Planets that lies within will influence our choices. With Lady Venus beauty herein, we can be sure we will attract those who appreciate every kind of beauty — both natural and man-made. If Mars holds court here, you may find passion and a thirst for adventure are more prominent in those who seek you out.

If Uranus in Taurus is moving through your Seventh House you can be sure there will be issues and perhaps shakeups with your partners, lovers and even family. But be of good cheer, as the Planet Uranus never brings us chaos without a plan to rebuild ourselves, and our lives on a stronger and more formidable foundation. Opposite the First House of our hopes and wishes — we could find our dearest dream coming true in an absolutely outrageous or individualistic manner.

Uranus Surprise — a marriage proposal or great job opportunity.

Uranus in Taurus in the Eighth Zodiac House — The Eighth Zodiac House is a bit tricky with Uranus in residence — since the Planet Uranus is one of unpredictability and surprise, and this House rules basically death and taxes! Of course, there are levels of its importance in these two bastions of our lives — opposite the Second Zodiac House of our own earnings, savings and budgeting skills, the Eighth House is more about other peoples assets and legacies that may influence your life. Also, any borrowed or lent monies, joint accounts, and investments. So, how will Uranus in Taurus behave herein? Well, fortunately, Taurus is a very staid and practical Earthy sign that will modify Uranus sudden need for change! This combination may bring out ideas of saving for retirement, using ones funds more efficaciously, and finding new ways to increase income.

Thinking of investing in any scheme that sounds to good to be true, will probably end up in a loss! At this time when Uranus might be titillating your need for a more comfortable cushion of ready cash — it will behoove you to take your time to find a financial manager that can guide you to some potential income boosters without throwing caution to the wind. Be aware of those who might want to persuade you to take a flyer on a “sure thing” that hasn’t been vetted. Use your good common sense and a legitimate broker to help you with anything you are thinking of taking a chance on with your hard-earned money.

Now, with Uranus in Taurus moving through this area (especially if you have a Planet within), could possibly find there is a gift, inheritance or hidden treasure that will come your way. It could be a windfall, an inheritance from a family member, or a token of affection from a treasured older relative who is giving those they love some remembrance of themselves. By and large though, it will be up to you to keep an eye on your own financial health and perhaps begin a budget that will help you increase your savings, so that you will have a prodigious nest-egg when the time comes for you to retire.

Uranus Surprise — You experience a psychic phenomenon that soothes your spirit.

Uranus in Taurus in the Ninth Zodiac House — This is such an important House as it covers so many varied areas of our lives. Herein lies our higher education, our religious or spiritual beliefs, our legal issues throughout our lives, our long-distance travel whether for business or pleasure, and plans for your future. Oh — and last but not least, your in-laws! Opposite the Third Zodiac House of our neighborhoods, siblings, aunts and uncles, and short journeys, there is a symbiotic relationship between these two — our early education, our childhood relationships, and memories of our relatives when we were young. With Uranus transiting in Taurus over the Ninth House we will find the activities it rules will be enhanced.

Perhaps your vacation of a lifetime will become reality, you or a family member get into the University or College of your dreams, you begin to question the validity of your parents religious beliefs, and begin to study other forms of worship. You may have a spiritual awakening through some esoteric happening in your life, that makes you realize that death is not the end of our existence, and you want to learn more. On a more negative note, any pending legal issues or court proceedings may become more intense and/or eliminated because of new circumstances. Be aware that you should always have proper legal counsel if facing any civil or federal court issues.

Also — you may be traveling to see distant elderly relatives who are in need of your services or just want to touch base with you to give you information and/or family facts that haven’t been discussed or have been hidden for years. You may have older parents that need extra attention, and there may be some legal ongoings about wills, trusts, and inheritances. It may be a time of reconciliation, if you have been estranged from your family members for some time. There may be a feeling of anxiety if you feel time is running out.

Uranus Surprise — you find some interesting facts about your ancestors.

Uranus in Taurus in the Tenth Zodiac House — At the top of our Zodiac Chart, the Tenth House is one of great importance. Our social standing is here, as is our job status. Also, it is one of the areas where the world sees us and what we have accomplished. Any honors, or tributes we have garnered during our lifetime will be noted here. There could be big changes in one’s life whilst Uranus in Taurus is in residence. For instance — career changes, job promotions, needing to find a new home, downsizing, finding yourself in local politics, being honored for your good deeds or working ethic! A business opportunity may open up that you have been waiting to take advantage of for a long time.

Also, more responsibilities may await someone who is already on the ladder-of-success — if Uranus is transiting your Tenth House, you will want to be prepared for any and all new prospects that are presented to you. Hone your abilities, your skills, and your mind-set in order to be able to respond to any and all opportunities that are opening for you in the next few years.

If you have any new ideas or projects in the works, be bold in offering your brilliance to those who have the power to give you a chance to show your stuff! Thinking outside the box will bring you to the attention of those who are willing to work with you in order to find the best and most innovative ways to move forward. Let your imagination soar as you scale the heights of whatever pinnacle you are trying to climb.

Where do you see yourself in 5 – 10 – 15 years? Preparing while Uranus in Taurus is giving you the most inventive yet practical, pioneering yet homespun, and original yet useful concepts and ideas that will bring you to achieve whatever magnificent, influential and ground-breaking project your imagination can render.

Uranus Surprise — Finding yourself receiving a major honor for work well done.

Uranus in Taurus in the Eleventh Zodiac House — Holding our friends, larger pets, hopes and wishes, and some business income, honing our educational pursuits, some of our more casual social life, meeting new people and seeing our future in a pragmatic manner. Whew — for a House that follows that stellar 10th Zodiac House, there is still a lot of business to attend to herein. Indeed, it is here that we find our closest and longest friendships, we improve on our basic education, it’s also where we have some of our most social and relaxed fun with those we have most in common, it’s our love of horses, larger dogs and any large pet, and it is where we begin to get serious about our life’s journey — whether career-wise or just future goals.

We can also find  some new interest in activities we hadn’t thought about, opposite the 5th Zodiac House of recreational pursuits, hobbies, romantic acquaintances, creative activities, and speculative ventures — you may start some new classes or undertakings that stimulate you physically or mentally. In the long run, these new interests might take you to an entirely new outlook on how you can truly enjoy your life.

Our biggest challenge with Uranus in Taurus traversing this area might be that we are finding we have outgrown some of our old pals, or our life has taken a turn — and we no longer have as much in common with a certain group of friends. You may have to make some difficult choices if there is a large enough gulf between where your interests have taken you, and where it may have left your friends in the dust. It will be up to you to pick and choose how to handle these divergent paths. Of course, if you have moved far from your childhood home, it may just be that you cannot keep in touch as frequently with your old friends because of distance. Whatever the chasm — you will have to make up your mind about how to proceed and/or find unique ways to honor long-standing connections from the past.

On a positive note, you may be finding new opportunities within your company to make your way up the corporate ladder. Be open to any new assignments and offers that come your way. Or — joining a new club or social group might lead you to your bliss.

Uranus Surprise — Meeting up with a childhood friend may lead to romance!

Uranus in Taurus in the Twelfth Zodiac House — As we follow the natural order of events in our lives — this aspect may bring the biggest changes for you. Our Twelfth Zodiac House has sway over contacts with Hospitals and Prisons (any confining physical or natural structure), our personal self-limitations, our self-analyzing abilities, Karma from past lives, confidential information and secrets, focusing on the negative side of life, lacking compassion, and keeping aware of our employment situation.

This House also often makes us question our faith, religious affiliations, and perhaps other idealistic concepts we have grown up with, and have never really thought about before. Uranus in Taurus will be testing the waters here for us, in order to shake our mundane and unfocused day-to-day moving through our life, and not really living it with purpose or delight.

There may have been some major happening that made us aware of our inability to face our own inner demons, or actual bad habits. Uranus in Taurus will be able to shake our plodding along, and make us take notice that we are not taking advantage of all that life has to offer. It may be that someone has a health scare, or has gotten in trouble with the law, or has just had themselves a revelation about life! Whatever has aroused your curiosity about your own lifestyle, there will be changes! Working with Uranus in Taurus can get you on to the right track and help you find those who will be able to help you on your way. Indeed, this may be the time for you to totally renew your commitment to your family, your church and most especially to yourself.

Be open to any new concepts that stimulate your curiosity, interest in bettering your current situation. Get to know yourself better during this duration (7 years) of Uranus in Taurus, and by the end of this run, you will be better prepared, more aware, and physically able to control your own life and future.

Uranus Surprise — A wonderfully new positive outlook on life, love, and your future!

Uranus in Taurus will be in effect for seven (plus) years — so there is a lot of time for the effects of this aspect to infiltrate the Zodiac House its is transiting within your own Chart. I find it exciting and look forward to whatever Uranus in Taurus might be planning. I feel the sign Taurus will have some moderating effect on anything Uranus might have in mind. If we embrace the awesomeness of all that life has to offer, we can anticipate an interesting time ahead for ourselves and perhaps for the world.

Peace

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer Reminder — July 12th 2018

This is such a powerful New Moon that we all should ready ourselves to write out our affirmations, wishes and desires after the Moon crests on July 12th, at 9:45 PM EST (add one hour for DST). Since the sign Cancer has so much to do with family, nurturing, home life, short trips, water sports and boating, we can use this as a guide to formulate our wishes. However, on a New Moon Solar Eclipse there is little we cannot wish for and put out into the Universal ether to root, and begin to flower into our own reality. Our personal thoughts have a weightiness that begins to create a scenario that can blossom and grow into an actual event in our lives.

Keep an optimistic outlook, use positivity in your wish and affirmation list, and truly believe that you have the ability and capacity to allow that spark of creativity to evolve and produce those outcomes that will bring you joy, comfort and blessings. Garner all of your inner grit and find that spiritual spark that you know will begin your journey forward into your own enlightened future reality.

Peace
