Horoscope week of 31 March 2017

Sunstar Banner


Tip of the Week: 

It can be said that spring has two starts to it. The first is the exact moment the Sun enters Aries and the second is the New Moon in Aries. Both have occurred now on March 20 and 27th, respectively. We can also analyze both of these events more closely using the lenses of Astrology to gain a deeper understanding of the themes. Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and, in some respects and in some cultures, actually, it can be understood as the beginning of the year, the New Year. After all, Winter Solstice indicates the beginning of winter. It can all seem a little confusing unless one appreciates the overlaying principle of cycles. As well, like a seed, it must first germinate and then sprout. Spring reveals the sprouts and buds leading to leaves and flowers. As you may be aware, in this Universal 1-Year, spring is extra special and, looking to the world stage, quite complex. Learn more in my recent Newsletter, sign-up is free on my website.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)

With Mercury now in Taurus you can expect your focus to become steadier. Yet with Venus still retrograde, you may still feel uncertain about what you want regarding current interests. Furthermore, as Venus re-enters Pisces this vagueness may increase. Positively, you will feel more peaceful.


Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)

A busy time behind the scenes continues. Yet, experiences destined to reveal who are some of your truest and trusted friends are likely. With your ambitions to explore new territory steadily increasing, the combined energies could manifest as new friendships and love interests.


Gemini (May 21-June 20)

The time has come to enter new territory. Yet ironically, it may also manifest as a journey down memory lane. Good thing there are two of you so you can enjoy both directions. Weaving the experiences of both into a new synthesis will prove inspiring and may even manifest as inventiveness and opportunity.


Cancer (June 21-July 22)

A wave of new initiatives and experiences implies a breakthrough period. You may not feel sure of your willingness to commit yet. That may take another 2-3 weeks. Accept it as a trial period. There may be other stages of initiation and development as well. Take your time to decide.


Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You are beginning to see your place in the world as with new eyes. Already, your ambitions are strong. Yet, you remain in the waiting room, so to speak. It may take a few weeks before you officially make a new start. The returns from the new ventures implied could prove significant. If interested, focus.


Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)

You have entered n accelerated period of change. It may manifest as basically as a shift of focus in alignment with the new season. However, the change could prove deeper than that. Your focus is strong and your drive equally so. This could prove to be a promising opportunity to make measurable progress.


Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22)

Some significant starts on relationship fronts are underway. Some of these are destined to activate new relationships altogether and/or fresh initiatives. However, some could well prove fleeting despite the initial excitement. It is all part of the dance of destiny so trust the flow.


Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

A series of dynamic if complex circumstances are underway. Patience is a keyword and how you respond to people and situations now could prove pivotal, for better or worse. Slow down and avoid righteous and expectant reactions. Observe what is happening and accept it as clues about how you need to adapt.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

A playful cycle continues as does your need to engage with increased determination. A wide array of interactions with people includes at least as many ideas and perspectives to consider. Positively, you are in a position to receive as much as to give and the result could be recognized as a wealth of exchanges.


Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

A process of pushing through barriers continues. There are two ways you can go, the literal or the magical. The literal implies actually removing or obstacles, walls and even people from your life. The magical way refers to clearing old beliefs, attitudes, interpretations and self-concepts and watching the outer reflections change.


Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

Thoughts are always the first stage of creation. These then grow into dreams, visions, plans, goals and intentions in the second phase. Action to actualize these comes next and follow through can be called stage four. Thus, creation includes looking back to stage one, frequent review of stage two and consistent focus on stage three. Chip chop!


Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20):

A new and exciting momentum is building. That Solar Eclipse in your sign in late February is destined to activate or synchronize with significant events in your life. Again, some will be outer events while others will stem from your own initiatives, and probably both. Answer the call!
