Weekly Horoscope Sunday, April 26, to Saturday, May 2, 2020

All Signs

At the beginning of this week, clever Mercury will be at odds with stern Saturn. Admittedly, this will encourage feelings of loneliness and depression in many of us. (Expect a spike in the sale of sour pickles.) Nevertheless, like a rabbit out of a magician’s hat, Mercury suddenly lines up with wild, wacky Uranus, triggering an explosion of something different! A surprise to your daily world will occur. Expect a change to your daily routine. For some, a relative might have news. Other will dream up new goals. Hey, I figure that if I can’t come forth to the world with some originality – I can come fifth and win a George Foreman grill.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This week, especially at the beginning, you might encounter some financial difficulties dealing with the government, bosses or anyone in a position of power and authority. This might be frustrating. Do not let feelings of doom and gloom over take you because ultimately, with Jupiter still high in your chart, you are protected. Furthermore, Venus, now travelling through your House of Communications, indicates that not only is your social life picking up, but you will be pleasant, agreeable and happy with your everyday surroundings and activities. Great! Yes, some kind of surprise that impacts your earnings, cash flow and possessions might happen. Let’s hope it’s a happy one?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

There’s a lot happening in your sign this week. At the beginning of the week, Mercury is in your sign at odds with stern Saturn at the top of your chart. This is classic for experiencing difficulties dealing with the government, bosses, parents and VIPs. Someone might throw cold water on your plans and ideas. This will be frustrating. However, right on the heels of this, you will react! Feelings of independence, even rebellion will make you speak out and defend yourself and also defend your own best interests. But hey, fear not because all next year, Jupiter will be at the top of your chart, which bodes well for your career and your public reputation! Success is in your future!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Others are not really aware of what is going on in your life now because whatever is happening is mostly taking place behind the scenes. At the beginning of the week, you might be worried or feeling stressed. If you can improve things or discover solutions, work on this. If the stress you feel is beyond your control – let it go. Your worries will have no benefit. (Easier said than done, I know.) Fortunately, you can benefit from your own ability to be charming and diplomatic right now because Venus is in your sign. This means your people skills are excellent this week! No matter what happens to ruffle your feathers, you will look cool, calm and collected. Make time for creative, intellectual work. You might defend your beliefs in discussions with others.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

At the beginning of the week, someone older or perhaps someone richer or in a position of authority might say or do something that makes you feel diminished. (You are far more sensitive than anyone could ever imagine.) Don’t let this get you down because right on the heels of this – something unexpected will happen. Someone you know will say or do something that surprises you. Or perhaps you will meet someone unusual – a real character. Maybe a friend will become a lover? This is a passionate time for you; however, some of you are using this passion to fight disputes about insurance, shared property, taxes and debt. Hint: If you change your goals, a retreat can become an advance.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

At the beginning of the week, you might be unhappy with your dealings with a parent, boss or someone in a position of authority. They might be uncooperative. They might lay down the law or be too restrictive from your POV. Fear not because this is brief. Following this, some kind of surprise will occur with the same authority figures. You might rebel. You might confront them or they might confront you. Mars opposite your sign makes you impatient with those who are close to you; however, Venus is in a part of your chart that smooths your relations with groups and casual acquaintances. (Whew!) Two different influences! Don’t do anything you will later regret. Keep your cool.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Local news or in the media or something related to another country or perhaps a medical or legal situation will concern you at the beginning of the week. Very soon however, these same areas will be a source of surprise for you. Something might force you to travel or stop you from travelling. Likewise, something unusual in the media or perhaps related to medicine and the law might amaze you. However, once again, this influence will be brief. You are keen to work hard now in order to be productive, which is why you can create such a great impression on bosses, parents and VIPs. Everyone loves you!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Something to do with taxes, debt, shared property, inheritances or anything that you own jointly with others will be sobering and possibly disappointing at the beginning of the week. “What? Is this all I am getting?” However, immediately following this possible disappointment, something unusual or unexpected will occur. Quite likely, it will surprise you. It might be a reversal of your original news? In some cases, it might be your defiant reaction to something? Double check banking details and details related to taxes and shared property so that you are not caught off guard. Forewarned is forearmed.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

At the beginning of the week, you might find partnerships and close friendships restrictive or depressing. Someone might be critical? You might feel cut off from someone? Hey, relax. These feelings occur in every relationship at times, especially when we are all in each other’s faces more than usual. This is one of the challenges of staying at home! Naturally, this will lead to some kind of “break-out” moment. Someone might rebel. You might surprise your partner by doing or saying something they didn’t expect. Or vice versa, they might surprise you. But it could be liberating? Mars is at the bottom of your chart indicating increased chaos at home Remember what your objective is. You want to be happy.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Be patient with situations related to your health or a pet or your job at the beginning of the week. Whatever occurs might be restrictive for you or limit you in some way. It might also discourage you. Very soon this situation will pivot into something unexpected? You might have an argument with someone or feel you have to defend yourself. Equipment might break down. Something sudden and surprising will create a detour for you. It’s possible that this surprise will be pleasant. But it might also be a surprise that is a speedbump for you. (Oops.) Fortunately, relations with partners and close friends are warm and supportive, even though you are assertive now! Oh yeah!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

At the beginning of the week, you will need to be extra patient with kids or with a romantic partner because something will irk you. You might have to face increased restrictions or responsibilities. You can handle this because you have broad shoulders. However, be alert because right after that, an accident-prone time, especially for your kids, definitely exists. Caution! Likewise, romance will be a rocky road. This means that the first half of this week requires vigilance, awareness, patience and effort on your part. Fortunately, everything connected with your work and your health looks positive. Playful and social diversions also look promising! Yay me!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You might find it challenging dealing with an older family member at the beginning of the week (perhaps a parent) because you will be forced to deal with some kind of restrictions or rules and regulations. (A bit of a bummer.) Nevertheless, stay on your toes because shortly following that, you will encounter something unexpected at home. This is an accident-prone time for your home and family. Although it also could be that small appliances might break down or silly delays occur. Domestic arguments? Something will upset your home routine. Easy does it because with Mars in your sign, you are quite aggressive. Fortunately, Venus will encourage your playful side. (You still have it, don’t you?)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Be good to yourself this week. At the beginning of the week, you might feel depressed or fall into a state of negative thinking. (Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.) On the heels of this challenging beginning, something unexpected will occur. It’s an accident-prone time for you. Definitely! Therefore, slow down and be mindful of everything you say and do. On the upside, the same influence that can promote a sudden change of plans or an accident – can also trigger genius-like ideas because it’s easy for you to think outside of the box. Write down these original, clever thoughts because you might be glad to have them later. Meanwhile, family is supportive. Enjoy relaxing times at home. You might also have redecorating ideas to make things more pleasant where you live.

Let’s Have Some Fun and See if We Can Figure some Emoticon Things out

Sometimes when I am feeling silly and/or creative I send my dearest sister, Silver Sage, messages done with mostly emoticons. So when this “Bright Side” youtube video popped up I could not resist posting it here. I’ll tell you I did not do good at guessing many of them.

Emoticon Quiz

I think this would be a fun game to play with your children while across Gaia we are having to stay in our home isolated for whatever length of time your local government has put into effect. I live in Illinois, USA we are suppose to have our “Stay At Home or Shelter In Place” order expire on April 30th but as the rate of COVID-19 cases has not leveled off and the chart of peaks and valleys would make a fantastic roller coaster. I have a feeling it is going to be extended as the other states in our region are doing. I know if any of mine or my grandchildren were here they would beat me probably win with ease….LOL

So have fun and I’ll check back in a couple of days to read your answers on how you did. Which of the 5 quizzes was your strongest (there is only 7 strings of emoticons per quiz). Just relax, maybe have your favorite beverage and snack laid out, then watch the video and have some fun!!!!

Blessings to you and yours for good health mentally and physically,

Lady Beltane

Goddess Knowledge – Artemis

Artemis, the archaic mistress of animals, probably dates back to Paleolithic times. Her realm is the wilderness, and her concern extends to all wild, untamed things. She presides over the hunt and is the goddess of hunters. Fiercely individualistic and independent, she remains apart from relationships to men. Despite her fierceness she is addressed as a healing and soothing goddess/. Protector of births, she alleviates the suffering of women in childbirth, She is also responsible for the initiation of young girls. Artemis is a wonderful symbol of female independence. She reminds us of the value of solitude and the importance of wild, unprotected places. She shows us those frightening places that bring healing even through fear.

Weekly Horoscopes 5 April to 11 April.2020

All Signs

Capricorn is the sign of government and the status quo. The last time Pluto and Saturn lined up in Capricorn was 1518. (The beginning of the Protestant reformation and break from Rome, which was a big deal.) This configuration brings financial problems, shortages and government restrictions of freedom of movement, as an old order is coming to an end. New structures will be built that are better because Pluto tears something down in order to get a superior result. These two planets remain close until the end of Dec. (with a slight relief in April, May & June). By Jan. 2021, they separate. We know that life is constant change. This means when things are bad – they will get better! (Yeah, yeah, it’s always darkest before it gets pitch black.) Remember: Hope is the feeling you have that the feeling you have isn’t permanent.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Here’s the deal: On Tuesday, there’s a Super Full Moon opposite your sign, which will trigger tension between you and partners from now until Wednesday. Patience is your best recourse to survive this. However, in addition to this, your ruler, fiery Mars is at odds with unpredictable Uranus during this same time. (It mathematically peaks on Tuesday the Full Moon day.) This means you might have a blow up with a friend or a member of a group. A friendship might end. You will definitely feel feisty and independent and not want to be bossed around by anyone! Fortunately, Venus is in your House of Communications, and this will save your bacon because Venus will make you charming and diplomatic.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Tension that builds up between now and Tuesday, when the Super Full Moon takes place, will manifest in your work, your health, or something to do with a pet. The good news about any Full Moon, is that each month our problems tend to get worse as we approach the Full Moon, but after the Full Moon peaks, these problems diminish! Let’s hope this is the case for you. However, because Mars is at odds with unpredictable Uranus, you will feel rebellious against authority figures, bosses, parents and the government. You will want to assert your ego. Unfortunately, in these trying times, we all have to suck it up for our own sake and the sake of others. Hey – you can do this.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

There’s a Super Full Moon on Tuesday, which means your relations with kids and romantic partners will be strained until Wednesday. Remember who is the kid and who is the adult. (Yeah, yeah, Geminis are big kids who never grow up.) Think before you speak to save yourself some headaches and regrets. Meanwhile, back at the airport, you are dying to get outta Dodge! But you can’t. You’re grounded. Or you’re doing important work for which we are grateful. Therefore, temper your rebellious desire for change. Do something different wherever you are, to satisfy your urge for novelty and stimulation. Avoid arguments about politics and religion.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

The Sun is still at the top of your chart, which makes you look good in the eyes of others. You are admired! However, the approaching Full Moon on Tuesday creates a tug-of-war between the demands of your work and public reputation versus the demands of home and family. On top of this, increased tension about shared property, insurance disputes, inheritances and something to do with the wealth and resources of others might explode in your face. (“I didn’t see that coming.”) Because of this unpredictable quality, do whatever you can to maintain your cool so that you can make wise decisions for yourself and your loved ones.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Please be careful because this is an accident-prone time for you from now until Wednesday. Verbal accidents as well as physical. Therefore, think before you speak or do anything because you will be tempted to say something that you will later regret. Why? Because along with the build up to Tuesday’s Full Moon, Mars is at odds with unpredictable Uranus, and Mars is opposite your sign. Ouch! This makes you easily angered with others. You’re restless, impulsive and rebellious! We all feel this way in varying degrees because everyone is cooped up. But hey, this is a small price to pay considering the price of those who are suffering. Why not be the role model we need right now?

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Be careful with your money and possessions. Financial problems are at hand and will continue to increase until the Full Moon peaks on Tuesday. After that, things should look better. Until then, keep a lid on things because surprises related to your health or your job are in the picture. It’s true you are under assault; but the good news is that fair Venus at the top of your chart means bosses, authority figures or the government will help you. (Actually, someone might appeal to you for help.) No matter how bad things are – look at places like Syria, we are still fortunate. (I cried because I had no shoes and then I met a man who had no cellphone.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Heads up! The Super Full Moon on Tuesday is in Libra. This will create tension between you and loved ones beginning now until Wednesday. You need harmony. You’re a people pleaser and you like to get along with others (although you are a skilful debater!) In addition to this, fiery Mars is at odds with wild, Uranus, which will trigger problems with your kids and arguments or problems with a romantic partner. Parents please note: This Mars-Uranus configuration is an accident-prone time for your kids. This is a challenging week for you, which means you have to step up to the plate and display grace under pressure. You can do this.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

We all feel tension from now until about Wednesday due to the Super Full Moon on Tuesday. Your sign will feel it with health issues, work and perhaps something to do with a pet. You might find it challenging to keep it all together. Meanwhile, while this is going on, at the same time, home accidents, explosive arguments at home and something unexpected related to your family might catch you off guard. It’s a bummer. But forewarned is forearmed. Be careful to avoid accidents at home. Do what you can to keep the peace. Be patient and don’t make a big deal about things. If someone pokes you – don’t take the bait! Set a sane example.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Expect tension with your kids or a romantic partner between now until Wednesday because of the Super Full Moon on Tuesday. Make an effort to be cool, forgiving and accommodating with others. Your real challenge will be the fact that Mars is at odds with Uranus and Mars is in your House of Communications. Caution! This is the classic time for an accident for your sign – physical or verbal. Be mindful! Pay attention to everything you say and do. More than any other sign, you find it difficult to be cooped up because you are the traveller of the zodiac. Freedom is a survival issue for you. However, right now, staying at home is, isn’t it?

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Between now and Wednesday, you feel pulled between the demands of family versus the demands of career and reputation. This is because of the Super Full Moon on Tuesday. Be patient with parents and bosses. During this same time, something will disrupt your finances. Your earnings or your belongings might take a sudden hit. (Whaaat?) Protect what you own from breakage, loss, theft and damage. Fortunately, Venus promotes good health and warm relations with coworkers for those working at home or on the front lines. Your sign is quick to help your community in any way possible. At times like this, we need you!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The Super Full Moon on Tuesday will trigger an accident-prone influence for you starting now until Wednesday. Knowing this ahead of time, slow down and be mindful! Be aware of what you say and do. This is especially important for your sign because another accident-prone influence is at play as well! Fiery Mars is in your sign at odds with your ruler unpredictable Uranus. This makes you feel impulsive and rebellious! If you feel things are intolerable, resist the urge to be rash because this will create a complete disregard for your obligations to yourself and others. Remember who you really are. You are someone who wants to make the world a better place!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

On Tuesday this week, there is a Super Full Moon cutting through both your Money Houses. The bad news is that problems with money, possessions and the wealth of others will be increasingly stressful until the Full Moon peaks. The good news is that after it peaks, these problems might decrease or even disappear? Hang in there! You have to do whatever you can to remain calm in your own skin because Mars at odds with unpredictable Uranus will make you feel restless, even explosive. You feel you have to break away from something. Unexpected disruptions will test your new way of living. But you can survive this test! Focus on making where you live more attractive.

Update on Lady Beltane and Some Ways to Clean Against Cornoavirus COVID-19

I have been confirmed as having mild to moderate COVID-19. As my breathing is good my long time doctor and I feel my best course of treatment is isolating at home for approximately two to three weeks, short course of oral steroids along with a steroid inhaler ( I’ve been on for 2 years which was my saving grace of keeping my lungs somewhat clear), cough medicine, White willow bark as a fever and inflammation reducer, and lots of extra fluids.

From World Health Organization

Please keep in mind just because so far the virus in me is being controlled and I do not need to be hospitalized everyone reacts to the COVID-19 virus differently. Please contact your health care provider of other call in centers of you or anyone you know shows any type of symptom as soon as you possibly can. Wash your hands very off and use hand sanitizer when warm water and soap is unavailable.

I am not in the human medical care field in any captaincy. By deciding to use some or all of these suggestions is your decision alone. Lady Beltane and/or Coven Life/Witches of The Craft Elders and/or Sliver Sag and/or NewFound-Life.com and/or CovenLife.co and/or WitchesofTheCraft.com cannot be held liable in any way for any thing that may go wrong by not using or using any of these suggestions including but not limited to anyone in your household and/or anyone else’s household you choose to share these suggestions with contracts the COVID-19 VIRUS a.k.a. Coronavirus, a.k.a. Novel Coronavirus or any other name given to do it by the media and/or government agency any where on Mother Earth no matter how sever the symptoms and possibly dying from this virus may happen to any individual who contracts this virus.

Either buy cleaning wipes containing bleach or make your own bleach solution using 2 Tablespoons of bleach in 1 Gallon of water. Put mixture in a spray bottle to use on ALL HIGHLY TOUCHED SURFACES, counter tops, refrigerator and freezer door handles, stove handles all door jobs I side and out mailbox latch or cover, handles and faucets on every sink, tub, and shower. We wipe the toilet handle seat, and cover every time before washing our hands. This list is only my check list for my home and a suggestion on where to maybe start in your own home but it does not include everything needed to be wiped down or how often to do it. I suggest at least three to four times a day. VERY IMPORTANT do not dry any surface you harvested or wiped down with bleach mixture as that will stop it from killing the virus and other germs all everything to air dry. Speaking of air I use this same mixture but adds descriptor my favorite essential oil to it in a spray bottle to use as an spray disinfectant for the air. I first spray an even aided Cleric cross above my head reaching my arms out as far as they will go. Than I put my arm holding the bottle out as far as I can and slowly turn in a counterclockwise direction bring it in  a little bit in towards my body each time I get to the spot I started from for me this is facing East. I do this in every room in my home except the bathroom and enclosed back porch. For the bathroom I spray an arch into the bathtub area and close the shower curtain than two more arches from side as I back out of the bathroom and close the door. We started too late it seems to use paper towels damped slightly with the bleach solution to wipe off everything that comes into our home that bleach would not have an adverse effect on such as anything plastic containers, all mail or deliveries from any type of package carrier, any non food items wrapped in plastic or in a cardboard container. All foods like fruit or vegetables are washed with a mild dish detergent and warm water before being out away. It may sound time consuming or like a hassle but ask yourself, “Do I want to take the extra time to try and protect myself and/or those living in the same home? ” I  am not saying these things will stop you and your family from getting COVID-19 but with this horrible life stealing virus at least if someone in your home does get  I hope these suggestions possibly make it a mild case. The CDC and WHO suggest coughing and/or sneezing into the crook of you elbow as this will keep airborne droplets to a minimum and your hands stay cleaner. WASH YOUR HANDS ANY TIME YOU THINK OF IT OR WHEN EVER YOU COUGH AND/OR SNEEZE OR GO TO THE BATHROOM OR BEFORE EATING even when using utensils!!!! If you have longer nails use a nail brush to scrub under them every time you wash your hands for 20 seconds every time. 20 seconds is the time it takes to not rush through singing “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” three times or the “ABC Song” once.

If you would be so kind as to ask for a smooth recovery for my how ever you would choose to do it. I would be very grateful to you.

Until we meet again soon may you all be Blessed Be

Weekly Horoscopes Sunday, March to Saturday, April 4, 2020

All Signs

In these scary times, many of us wonder what we can do to help, especially from home. I received an email saying some people on Vancouver Island were starting to meditate-pray at 8 PM Pacific time every night for 20 minutes (or how long you want). It’s a chance to stop and take a moment to send your energy and wishes of love and healing to all beings – people and animals. I have been doing this and I like it! It makes me feel better. Will it make others feel better? I don’t know. But I think it makes the people who are doing it feel better. Why not give it a try? Take three deep, slow breaths….and then…very slowly, let go of your cell phone.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

For the next six weeks, Mars will give lots of energy to the part of your chart related to friends, groups and organizations. This will help people who are active in essential jobs – caregivers, fire fighters and those who are joining forces with others to keep us safe. For those at home, in the next six weeks, you will be more active online interacting with groups and friends. Plus, Venus now moves into the part of your chart related to everyday contacts. This is good news! It gives you a greater appreciation for the people you encounter in your daily world. You will develop a greater appreciation for the love and support around you.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

There are two conflicting signals coming to you from the universe. Right now, the placement of the Sun makes you want to hide in self isolation. (Sound familiar?) However, for the next six weeks, you will be super ambitious, which runs contrary to the necessity of taking a backseat. Sure enough, your ambition will be blocked this week by authorities, rules and regulations. No worries because ultimately with careful planning, you will actually attract money to you. Enjoy conversations and online interactions with younger people, in particular because they will inspire you and vice a versa.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Things will become more pleasant for you because fair Venus moves into your sign this week to stay for two weeks. This makes you extra charming and diplomatic! Yes, we love you! (Your bathroom mirror is covered in kisses.) It’s tough to be in self-isolation because this is a popular time for you! However, you can still reach out to others on line. Although you might feel restless in the next six weeks (because you want to travel), instead you can use this energy to study and learn something new. Explore philosophies, ideas and seeing new places through virtual tours. A conversation with a boss or parent will be significant.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You look mahvelous dahling, mahvelous, because the Sun is at the top of your chart. (This is not surprising because many Cancer people are nurses, caregivers and in the health profession. Oh yes, you’re the big tit.) This is an excellent week to study or finish writing papers and manuscripts. Disputes about inheritances and shared property or insurance issues will come to a head but they will be resolved by the end of the week. (Good.) Meanwhile, close friends and partners are supportive and a source of joy to you. They appreciate your fabulous sense of humour. (Phyllis Diller was Sun and Moon in Cancer.) “Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight.”

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a frustrating time for Leos who are in self isolation because more than any other time of the year, you want to get outta Dodge! Fortunately, you are creative, so you will see ways to break the monotony of your daily routine. Since you are a teacher and a performer at heart, share your ideas via YouTube or Facebook with others. Give people a three-minute performance of something that appeals to you. You’re a natural! Relations with friends are warm and supportive in a calm, practical way. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, difficulties with partners and close friends will arise Your partner will be obstinate, stubborn and frozen in place. Unlike you who is cooperative, wise, all-knowing and completely flexible. It’s a pity.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This week will be frustrating in areas related to your job, your work, your health and possibly dealing with a pet. You might feel angry. Actually, this same astrological influence gives you much energy that you can channel in other directions. You can get a lot of work done, especially work that requires concentrated focus and great discipline or a careful technique. Working with metals will be excellent. The good news is that people in authority admire you now. They see you as the voice of reason. They also see you as someone to guide them, especially in matters of peace, harmony and beauty. (That’s not too shabby.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You need harmony in your surroundings. This includes colour, design, furniture arrangement, smells – anything that makes you feel relaxed with your surroundings. This is why you need to suck it up and go more than halfway when dealing with partners and close friends because this will be your quickest road to peace. Peace! Remember your objective. You want peace. Therefore, don’t make a big deal about anything. Relax. Meanwhile, opportunities in publishing, the media, the law or medicine are now at hand if you are ready to work for them. Parents will have challenges with their kids this week. But you can handle this. Fortunately, your family will be a source of joy for you this year.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Oh my! You’re in busy mode. Running around the house with an outboard motor on your butt! Be happy that you’re motivated to get better organized and get a lot done. However, difficulties with family members will require your patience. Patience and tolerance. (Those words are in the dictionary.) You’re the most strong-willed sign in the zodiac, but without even knowing it, you can steamroller over others. Be kind to the little people. Actually, because you are strong willed with amazing self-discipline, people now look to you for support. (Especially because more than any other sign, Scorpio works in the medical profession, septic engineering, garbage and recycling and the morgues.) We need you!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

It’s play city for you! My heart goes out to because you’re the traveller of the zodiac and this is the month when you want to be on vacation. What to do? An elaborate picnic in the backyard? Virtual tours of the great museums of the world? Skype calls to your friends in other countries? Certainly, your relations with partners and close friends are warm and cozy now because Venus is opposite your sign for the next two weeks. You’re entering a lovely month if you write, teach or edit because Mars will make you identify strongly with your ideas and opinions. Oh yes – you will speak up! Caution about coercing others to believe as you do. Not everyone carries the Centaur’s arrow of truth.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Good news! Because the Sun is at the very bottom of your chart right now, it’s easier for you to stay at home more than other signs. (Having said that, more than other signs, you have a strong sense of social responsibility to the community, so you would do this anyway.) Financial difficulties arise this week. Something might stop your earnings or cash flow. But this is temporary. You are resourceful and capable of making long-range plans related to earnings, money and your job. Capricorns never give up. You’re the mountain goat! You know that difficulties are actually character building. “No pain, no gain.” Meanwhile, one can always shop for a decent handbag online. “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.”

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You’ll be glad to know that fiery Mars is moving into your sign where it will stay for the next six weeks. This happens only once every two years and when it occurs, it boosts your energy and makes you PowerPoint on steroids! The placement of the Sun also indicates that you are eager to move and be active with short trips and conversations with everyone. Of course, these two influences will make self-isolation at home particularly challenging for you! Fortunately, you’re a brainiac. You see the world as a global village. You understand the power of like-minded individuals to make positive changes. Romance with someone of an age difference might occur now – probably online.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

No matter what you’re doing, (and many of you are working from home) you are focused on money, earnings and cash flow. Mercury in your sign makes you eager to talk to everyone. And this week, Venus has changes signs, which brings a two-week influence that will make you want to redecorate your digs and enjoy the company of family. However, in the next six weeks, Mars will be hiding in your chart, which triggers a time of self-denial. It means you might not get credit for what you are actually doing because you have to stay in the background. Bummer!

All Signs

Pluto in Capricorn is lined up with Jupiter. (This last occurred in 1771.) Capricorn represents organizational structures. Meanwhile Pluto is the planet of regeneration and extremes, and Jupiter magnifies whatever it touches. Neptune in Pisces is classic for hidden viruses. Neptune rules hospitals, “prisons” and chemistry. (Neptune was last in Pisces from 1847-1861.) Did pandemics occur during those times? Yes! They also occurred many other times as well. I see no astrological explanation. But today we are medically sophisticated, informed and globally connected. We can control our destiny. Fate may deal us our cards – but we play them. The solution is to play them with clean hands.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

There’s good news and there’s bad news this week. The bad news is that you are going to meet obstacles, confrontations and closed doors dealing with authority figures, bosses, the government or any powerful person or group to which you might petition your case or make a plea or a request. “Talk to the hand!” Bummer. The good news is that the Sun is now in your sign. (Hey, this happens only once a year.) This means you are empowered! Not only that, fair Venus will attract money to you and give you a favourable edge in financial negotiations. Yeah, yeah it will also make you want to buy pretty things and spend your hard-earned dollars. Despite the difficulties that you encounter with authority figures, somehow you end up with good press!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This continues to be a time when you will prefer to take a backseat and keep a low profile because this feels best to you. (An excellent idea during these uncertain times.) Interactions with younger people will please you. In fact, a younger person might inspire you or elevate your idealism about something, perhaps through a group or an organization? Even though Venus is in your sign making you diplomatic and charming (it’s almost pathetic) – nevertheless, avoid controversial arguments about politics, religion and racial issues because they will get nasty. Easy does it. “These are not the droids you’re looking for.”

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This continues to be a popular time, which means you want to see people or be involved with groups, clubs and organizations. You might be at home doing this through Skype or social media? Nevertheless, you will choose to interact with others more than usual by whatever means you can. Now is the time to give serious thought to your future goals. It’s also a strong time to talk to bosses, parents and authority figures. Meanwhile, disputes about shared property, inheritances and joint responsibilities might be nasty. Fortunately, Venus guarantees lovely moments of peace and quiet during times of solitude.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Good news! The Sun is still at the top of your chart casting you in a flattering spotlight, which means others are impressed with you and see you as competent and capable, even if you don’t do anything special. (Good lighting is everything.) Not only that, Venus now smooths the way for all your relations with friends and groups, which is a lovely thing for you to experience. In particular, it will encourage your interaction with artistic, creative people. These supportive influences are just what you need while fiery Mars is opposite your sign creating friction with partners and close friends. Fear not – you are loved.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

A strong impulse in your chart now makes you want to travel. However, this is not a good idea. Fortunately, this influence is actually an urge to expand your world. In other words, you want to learn new things, meet new people, see new places! It is possible to do this by learning new things and exploring things remotely. Take an online course. Learn a new language. Study history. Make friends with other cultures and different parts of the world and enjoy exchanges that will enlighten you. Visit museums on line. Meanwhile, someone wants your creative advice about how to make something look more attractive. (More than any other sign, you are quick to see the big picture.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Some of you might be exploring a romantic relationship with someone who is “different”. Perhaps this person is from another culture or a different country? This same influence makes you want to travel and explore new ideas; however, you will likely have to do this online. This is a passionate time for you, which is why you feel intensely about many things. Nothing is casual. Important conversations with a close friend or partner are taking place. Problems with kids, if you’re a parent; problems with vacations; and problems with creative ventures are discouraging. Instead, seek ways to feel inspired about art, philosophy or music. You might have a consciousness-expanding experience through your love of beauty. It happens.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You still need more sleep. Respect this fact and get more rest. You can accomplish a lot of work by communicating with others and being hands-on because you are motivated to do so. Money, support, resources and equipment from other sources will help you now as well. Unfortunately, some kind of confusion, chaos or difficulty is taking place on the home front or within your family dynamic. Deal with this as best you can. Right now, you have the advantage of being able to see your partnerships and closest relationships with more objectivity. This will help you to improve them, which is what any sane person would want to do – right? And you’re sane.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You continue to be in work mode, which is why you can accomplish a lot. It won’t always be this easy, so get as much done as you can. Use this motivation to get better organized. It’s a fortunate blessing to have this kind of motivation! It makes you productive and it instills high standards within you. This is why you also want to improve your health as well as your daily effectiveness. (Bravo!) Venus opposite your sign guarantees excellent relations with those who are closest to you because Venus helps you to be patient with siblings, relatives and neighbours, even when these exchanges are challenging! However, it’s always a two-way street. Where you find others difficult to deal with – they might find you difficult. Go gently.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

No matter how serious things are, you want to party! To put a finer point on it, you want the freedom to express yourself and do exactly what you want. Of course, you want to get out and have a good time but you can also have a good time at home with family members, especially with kids. Your attitude toward all your relationships will be lighter and more playful. Take time to make your workspace more attractive. (Incidentally, a work-related romance will blossom for some of you.) One dark cloud on your horizons might relate to money and cash flow. There is tension in this part of your chart showing some kind of upheaval or transformation. Don’t worry because in the long run, you will be financially protected. It’s all good.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your focus on home, family and your private life continues perhaps through self-isolation or increasing demands of family members. Many of you are more involved with a parent. What is frustrating is with Mars in your sign, you are high-energy and keen to do things! Physical exercise and increased activity on the home front are obvious outlets. However, a sweet blessing from Venus now encourages you to express your creative style through hobbies or creating beautiful things that might be of use? You need to talk to others and communicate because busy Mercury is in your House of communications this week. These are conflicting energies for you to handle. Good luck!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This continues to be a busy time mentally and physically. Many of you are on the go with short trips and interactions with others despite the need for social distancing and self-isolation. It’s as if the world refuses to stop and recognize your personal needs. Do the minimum. Explore moneymaking ideas online and talking to others online. Fortunately, the placement of Venus is helpful for you now because Venus will show you how to have pleasure staying at home. (Bonus!) Naturally, Venus wants you to entertain, which means families can be close now. In fact, redecorating ideas are bubbling in your mind. “Now I have time to tackle this project that I’ve always wanted to do.” (Make that window box!)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

The planets show that your primary focus is about money and earning money. You cannot ignore it. Unfortunately, the ability to earn money is being interrupted for so many people. However, at a deeper level, this same influence is making you ponder your own value system. As the world is changing so rapidly around you, you are forced to ask yourself, “What really matters?” Venus is in a part of your chart that will play a role in this self-discovery because it will encourage you to see how much love there is in your daily life. It will also encourage you to see how much beauty there is in your daily surroundings. When you change the way you look at things, the things that you look at change.
