Tip of the Week:

If you have not felt or noticed the shift yet, you will soon. I am referring to the Lunar Nodes changing signs from Taurus/Scorpio to Aries/Libra. The axis of the Moon’s Nodes can be cared to the North and South poles where the North holds the magnet and can be understood to pull the energy towards it. The South Node, on the other hand, tends to have a gravitational pull. So, magnet versus gravity. Following this metaphor, the magnet pull can be understood to be stronger than gravitational, yet both do exert an influence. In this regard, the planets that rule each of the signs also play key roles. Interestingly, Taurus is ruled by Venus and Scorpio is co-ruled by Mars, just as is true of Aries and Libra, yet the poles are reversed. (The other ruler for Scorpio is Pluto. Yes, Scorpio has two ruling planets, illustrative of the complexities of the legendary 8th sign.) So, the reversal from Venus at the North Node magnetic pole is significant because Mars can be understood as the quintessential alpha planet, the verb in the sentence, the planet of action, assertion, and aggression. The transits of these planets then play stronger roles than usual. All of this within the context of the now waxing Cazimi Cancer New Moon and the Sun poised to enter hot Leo. Stay tuned folks, the game is about to get even more dramatic and exciting.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

As has been true for some months, the pull between work and play continues. Hopefully, you have been able to enjoy some fun time because the shift is now leaning towards work again. At deeper levels, you may be feeling and noticing that the time has come for some measure of re-invention.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)

Creating beauty close to home has been a strong theme over the past weeks and it now enters its next phase. Cleaning, clearing, and making improvements and refinements are all featured. There is an edgy element that speaks to renovations as well. Maybe all of the above are focused on ‘home’ where your heart is, literally.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

A surge of energy is yours to enjoy. Yet, some of the energy will be directed to digging deeply wherever necessary. A passionate determination is indicated so you will not be easily sidetracked. Meanwhile, be careful not to take things too personally now and over the coming weeks.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

Inspirations and instinctive impulses to take new leads and strides are indicated now. In some respects, you yearn to escape from it all for a while. In other regards, you may be feeling ambitious and know that you need to do the work required. How can you have both?

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

You are feeling the need to make some key moves to get your needs met. Deciphering what these are and why addressing them is important are the two most important things to decipher. Once you are clear, you will be better able to determine how and what you need to do.

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

While the energies of the New Moon are serving to boost your confidence levels, especially in as much as you have a practical plan to guide your efforts, the Sun in Leo is leading you to get busy behind the scenes. All being well, you will be able to get a lot done and could emerge in a month or so with a whole new approach.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Ambitious aspirations in your public and professional life are igniting a spirit of determination and discipline. Yet, you are also feeling rebellious and are reluctant to simply conform. You want to do it your way such that your specific needs are addressed along with your sense of individuality.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

A visionary inspiration is igniting your adventurous aspirations. You yearn to make all the right moves to capitalize to get the attention you want and the energy flows that come with it. At this point, ambitions may be too light a word to describe your resolve. Aim to be authentic and true for best results.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

As though you are emerging from a fog, the seeds of change have been sown and will invariably fulfill their destined purpose over the coming weeks. Fortunately, an ardent determination to go big and hard, as necessary, is available to support your resolve. Be willing to learn new skills and strategies.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Destined changes on relationship fronts are now underway. Hopefully, they are the kind of changes you truly desire, want, and need. The tricky part, here, is that desires, wants, and needs are not always the same. So, the other side of this process is to dig deeper to discern which is which and which is best.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

Changes in your daily rhythm and routine have begun. You may have noticed the beginning of these a few weeks ago and now they are entering their next major phase of development. Your job is to tune-in and cooperate. This implies breaking free of your comfort zone and doing what is required.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)               

A creative impulse is rising steadily now and will over the coming weeks. Yet, to harness it, you must be willing to do the work. It appears that you will not be going it alone, however. That is the good news and hopefully, you recognize that. The other side of the deal is that you have to lead by example.
