ARIES (March 21-April 19): October brings with the changing leaves, a personal attitude of altering your own colors and spots.  Venus rules this season of relationships which encourages you to become part of your community.  With joint resources in the stars, you will benefit from some elbow rubbing.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your work environment is a very important reflection of your day to day activities.  Probably some of your best friends have resulted from work related bonds.  Venus is moving into your partner sector so, be aware and open to a personal connection or possible new work associate. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Who said you can’t have fun while everyone else is busy working?  Gemini, all of the planets are transiting in your fun house this month of October.  Relish in travel, creative pursuits, socializing with new acquaintances, and planting seeds for work related projects.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Visitors, home improvements, and beautifying your life is the highlight for your October forecast.  You might be feeling particularly attached to your abode this fall and enjoy the harmony of home life.  Enjoy the balance and tranquility of your space and the social opportunities that follow.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Entering into Fall on the equinox, had you dealing with a whirlwind of information from many different sources.  How can you use your hidden talents to dispatch that knowledge?  My advice to you is to not push too hard, nor try to escape it.  Instead, develop a strategy to cover the most ground with the least effort.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept 22):  The Libra energy of October is hanging out with your possessions and values.  This is a time to look at what assets you are sharing or should be sharing.  Be wary of messages or correspondence not seeming clear during this transit.  Take time and patience to reevaluate your terms.  

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The harmonic trapeze artists of the zodiac are obsessed with fine delicacies, being surrounded with beautiful items, and enhancing their good looks .  Since the Sun is in Libra, it is only right to relish in luxuries in the weeks where you shine.  A word of warning: be wary of overindulging with limited resources.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): What can you accomplish behind the scenes in the next few weeks before the Sun moves into your sign on October 23?  There could be a secret group or committee that you would like to create or maybe make some personal changes in your home life.  Whatever it is, keep silent, and just do it!

SAGITTARIUS(Nov. 22-Dec.21): It appears that you are juggling a few aspirations during this Libra time.  You will get more accomplished if you  gather a team of organizers to help you along the way.  This can cause some unplanned expenditures  but, it seems a necessary way to move forward.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): With the planets in Libra, you are probably searching for more balance and harmony in your life.  This energy promotes you goats to take a few days off to reassess  your spiritual goals versus the “workaholic” tendencies that you’ve had throughout the summer.  The work will always be there but, watching leaves fall only happens once a year.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):  If Aquarians could chanel their erratic brainwaves, they would be masters of the universe!  This month allows for some opportunities to balance your personal skills along with leveling out some bumpy relationships.  To listen wholeheartedly is a true gift.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Last month there were a lot of lessons learned with those who surround you while adjusting your day to day activities.  This month, you want to take some of that wisdom and weave it into your own personal evolution.  Be optimistic and watch the beauty unfold.


ARIES (March 21-April 19): You just might want to devote the first few weeks of April on YOU. As Mercury is in retrograde in your sign until April 15th, take any opportunity to change your hairstyle, amp up your work out, get a physical, or see a therapist. Mind, body and soul is the complete triangle. Be careful to not take any rash actions in your career until the end of April, you probably will change your mind by then.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Delays in life can be frustrating. April will be full of them, my favorite Bull. Instead of focusing on the things that don’t move forward, take this time to attract relationships that could support and sustain you, both financially and with pleasure seeking. If you need to learn something new to make that happen, do it! Set a goal and don’t forget to notice the beauty that surrounds you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You have been chosen to be the Activity Leader, Teacher, or Group Organizer. This is the perfect role for you, Gemini, as you excel as the educator and shine in organizational activities. Since your sign is ruled by the planet Mercury and we will be experiencing a Mercury retrograde until the third week of April, I advise you to be tactful with diplomacy of communication. Make sure that everything you convey is clear and concise.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Have you ever experienced an Identity crisis? It is the condition of being uncertain of one’s feelings about oneself with regard to character and goals. Cancer folks can be experiencing this crisis in their career sector. Sometimes misunderstandings in the work place can eat away at your reputation. Act with stern diligence to iron out any concern in question. Keep attention to the details and use your authority as “the expert” in the field to remind them of how really valuable you are.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): American author, Brian Herbert, has written that: “The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; and the willingness to learn is a choice.” I encourage you to learn whatever you need to carry with you in your overflowing bag of tricks during this Mercury retrograde. It could be a spiritual awakening or an academic feat. Whatever the cause, don’t make haste to complete it, even if there are unpredictable delays or interruptions.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept 22): The planet that rules the sign of Virgo is Mercury. We will be in the depths of a Mercury retrograde until April 15th. During this season of Spring, you might have the urge to transform the way you think and the way you express yourself. How about a new you? I like that idea. Start structuring a new creative approach to your life and be the star of your own movie. Think outside of your usual well constructed box and dare to be different and unique.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Spring has sprung in your house of romance! Now don’t get too excited, since we are in a Mercury retrograde, that could mean that you have some unresolved relationship issues to deal with along the way. These issues need to be addressed carefully. Since Mercury is our communication planet, be uber cautious of how you express yourself during this time. Those of you who are unattached might experience a new fling or a delightful blast from the past.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): All of the hard work that you’ve been doing to improve your daily routine and work habits should start paying off in April. Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines practiced everyday. During the Mercury retrograde until mid April, Scorpions will want to complete any unfinished tasks at work or rework some plans that were already on the table for discussion. Getting these minor details out of the way could open new doors into a financial breakthrough.
SAGITTARIUS(Nov. 22-Dec.21): Sag, isn’t it long overdue for you to shake up your creative juices? There have been some projects that you have thought about starting or learning and here you have it! This Mercury retrograde is insisting that you get down to business! Fun-filled, artistic, and playing-like-a-child business that is. As we settle into Spring, you will be chomping at the bit to maybe revamp your home design by adding an adventurous color for your walls or commencing a new springtime family tradition.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Have you ever felt that you were speaking a foreign language that no one understands? The Mercury retrograde is sitting in your house of communication. By nature, you already struggle truly expressing yourself but, the month of April might be doubly trying for you. Everything that comes out of your mouth seems to go through a voice distorter of sorts. That goes for your electronics also, where things might get lost and confused. Have no fear, all will return to a normal state by April’s end.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Beware of little expenses; a small leak can sink a mighty ship. Even though Spring is in the air and you may crave some small indulgences, remember that they all add up. Instead, take the month of April to review your finances and savings. Look at all of your assets and acquisitions so you can review the importance of each one. Whatever you’ve outgrown or not used for the past year, would be a wise idea to pass on to others less fortunate.
PICSES (Feb. 19-March 20): This is your moment in the sun. Enjoy the rewards and recognition that come your way, more so in your public life than in your personal one. You can shine at work while achieving some goals or at the very least, acknowledging the adjustments that you’d like to make in the future month. Keep your personal dramas down to a minimum and release all of what you can’t control.

Astro Counsel for March 2018

ARIES (March 21-April 19): The “Ides of March” was a warning uttered by a soothsayer in Roman times to leader Julius Caesar, letting him know that he should probably stay home and be careful. Aries, this advice would do you well also. Don’t over think it, over do it, over explain it, or over justify it. Do yourself a favor and just sit in the present moment.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): It is said that the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself through doing service for others. Listen to the needs in your community, or even a close friend who could be reaching out for help. This is your chance to step up and be self-less. You will be delightfully surprised how good it feels to know that things get solved when you get involved.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Part of being a twin, is the fact that one part of you might feel afraid or be disillusioned, while the other side of you will sense a strong urge to be courageous and original. You’re a mixed bag. March has got your personal planets in your career house which may feel like a rollercoaster ride at times. Stay clear of deceptive types at work but, don’t stop taking advantage of inspirational bursts of ingenuity.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): With your ninth house of higher education and travel favored this month, there could be some chaos or confusion while attempting to make decisions in those areas of your life. Especially when the decisions your are making involve the choice of where you should be versus where you would like to be. No need to worry, communicate the details and specifics. If you have all of your ducks in a row, then you won’t be sabotaged!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Do you know what it means to transform yourself? Basically, it is deciding to make a move to change. Don’t wait to take action tomorrow, or next week, or worse, next month. The time is now, Leo. In this moment you can make some different choices, and then consider some other options that affect those choices in the coming weeks. Those decisions can sum up over time to cultivate tiny successes and transform you into a healthier human, both inside and out.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept 22): A relationship is like a house. When a lightbulb burns out, you don’t go and buy a new house, you fix the broken lightbulb. Virgo, this month might be a prime opportunity to go through your home and fix all of the burned out lightbulbs. One by one. There may be some unexpected reactions. But that’s okay, because when you have friends or partners that you genuinely care about for the long haul, you focus on the things you share together versus the effort to be right.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The Universe is giving you signs to take better care of yourself. Your subconscious mind has been warning you to stop worrying, stop stressing, and lighten up. Even your day to day activities have been confusing and unclear. Libra, my advice to you is; to just roll with it. In order to be in a healthy state of mind and body, you will have to let go of habits and thoughts that no longer serve you. Our bodies will react poorly when our mind is gnawing away at the good energy. Be gentle with yourself, by March’s end, you will feel lighter in both your physical and mental states.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Realizing that I have mentioned this before, but I will say it again; Jupiter is in Scorpio until the end of December this year. In case you have forgotten, Jupiter is our success and expansion planet. The month of March, all of your personal planets lie in your house of fun and creativity. That means lots of chances to express yourself and show off the gifts that your Mama gave you. Think grandiose not minimalistic. You will want to WOW them with your charms in March.

SAGITTARIUS(Nov. 22-Dec.21): The month of March might have you homesick for your family or bring back the nostalgia of your childhood. These weeks may raise ideal occasions to communicate with those loved ones whether far away or near, addressing any old wounds that require healing. Words can wound, and wounds can heal. Compassion is a key component through connection and healing begins where the wound was made.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): There may be a bit of disorganization in reference to your possessions. Of course, this characteristic does not follow the Capricornian suit. You love organization, having a plan and being well aware of what is yours and what is not. The good news is that it appears that the planets are shining on your good fortune so, you could have more in the pot than you think. Be wise while spending since experiences are priceless and possessions can always be replaced.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your hard work this month will not go unnoticed. The March energy will have you improving your own personal character flaws, serving the needs of your relationships, and managing to excel in the work place. Bam, you’re a Super Hero! You might as well be one for reaching personal goals may be difficult for some but, not for you these next few weeks. Relish in this energy and don’t sweat the small stuff.

PICSES (Feb. 19-March 20): How you communicate right now within your own mind and through others is of utmost importance this month. Since this is the astrological period of Pisces, you probably will want to feed your soul with nourishing thoughts and ideas. Transform anything negative into an absolution, releasing any fear or doubt. You are the awe inspiring fish, who’s talent can be hidden underneath a shy exterior. Let your scales glitter and glow during your birth month season. Getting noticed for your gifts is actually a good thing!


As we welcome the Sun to join Mercury, Mars, Venus, and Neptune; all in the path of Pisces energy, we will go within to stir up this intuitive and spiritual force that dwells deep inside all of us. Let’s learn how to release our creative and psychic side utilizing the Neptunian knowledge, our ability to draw out strengths through various creative activities, and most of all, becoming in tune with this embodiment. In order to partake in this workshop, you must provide your birthdate, time of birth, and location of birth (city, state, & country) upon registration.

February Astrology Counsel

ARIES (March 21-April 19):

With Mars transiting your house of higher education and philosophical beliefs, you feel drawn to trans- form yourself and learn through your soul. The idea of joining new groups or gatherings is what this Aquarius sun is telling you would be good for you. Aries have the habit of getting lost in the self so, becoming a part of something big- ger than the “self” is true service indeed.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20):

Peace and harmony are your theme this month and you will use all of your tact and graciousness to avoid a quarrel. Trying to keep the team together at work or through a partnership might take some maturity on your part while trying not to be too stubborn. Your communication skills might be of a unique nature right now, but who cares, seems like this new technique is working.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

Unexpected changes of schedules with your career and/or partner- ships have got you wondering if you have been listening with both ears or maybe the fact of why you haven’t been paying proper attention. Over come your tendency to drift both in personal and business matters right now. Go with the flow but avoid your inclination to scatter yourself too thin with obligations and overbooking your social calendar.

CANCER (June 21-July 22):

Have you been seduced with the urge to learn something new or unusual for your very normal Cancerian self? By mid February, you will start following that craving by diving into the pool of knowledge or perhaps taking off to an exotic destination to hear it from the horse’s mouth. Your job might even be supporting this quest or, if not, making this a lovely addition to your personal portfolio.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):

With the sun in Aquarius transiting your house of companionship and joint ventures, the notion of combining forces for the greater good is really the way to go! Leo, you need the adoration of someone who is really on your side. As you join forces, think about the importance of loyalty to the cause and how your duality as humans can change the way you perceive others.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept 22):

Interruptions and break downs in your daily routine might have you a little off-kilter, during this month of February. Don’t take it too seri- ous because there’s nothing you can do to change it. You know that worrying is a useless emotion, I know that too, but sometimes, we just can’t help ourselves! Try to roll with the punches, sweet Virgo, and don’t over-analyze the issues you have no control over.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

The Sun in Aquarius is transiting your fifth house of creation, children, and the things that give you joy. This could mean taking up a pecu- liar hobby or expressing yourself creatively through uncommon means. Whatever your interest is, combine it with written or verbal notations since Mars is standing ground in your communication sector.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

February will bring commotion and unexpected circumstances at home. You might find yourself detaching from your little nest a bit to avoid the distractions but, as February ends, you will feel the energy shift from the unpredictable chaos to a creative drive towards pure joy. Sometimes our world has to get disrupted in order for us to appreciate what was right there laying in front of us.

SAGITTARIUS(Nov. 22-Dec.21):

Sag, you’ve had this compelling passion to bang your bongos for all to hear, convey your message in a most unusual manner, along with standing in your truth as tall as Paul Bunyan. Can it be that Mars likes hanging out in your first house of self? Yep, he can make you grow big muscles and take care of issues that you haven’t wanted to confront. That’s okay, we all get our chance to clear the air at some point..

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

Be careful of finances this month, my bearded buddy. There can be a jolt of sudden change where your money and possessions are con- cerned. If you do not expect the unexpected, then you might get pleasantly surprised by something you’ve wanted but never expected.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

Whether you are marching to the beat of your own drum or giving a speech about the injustices in our world, an Aquarius during their birth period, will desire to be heard. The radical free-thinker of the zodiac, will strive to help others in need and educate us in global consciousness. Aquarius is represented as the Water Bearer, who uses information as the liquid that flows from their vessel into the unifying pool of the universe.

PICSES (Feb. 19-March 20):

Making up your mind along with finding answers to the right decisions are never easy. You are having a lot of good new ideas that can be put to good use and causes but, again, decisions are never easy, especially for those born under the Pisces sun. Take your time and try not to get distracted or scatter your thoughts. Make a list of those concrete proposals, and get ready to make your choices by month’s end.


ARIES (March 21-April 19): So what’s your strategy, Aries, for 2018? With Mercury, Pluto, and Saturn all moving into your career house by mid-January, you might want to organize a solution to your financial woes. Perhaps there is an opportunity for a raise or promotion, if so, the planets are shining brightly on you to manifest that reality. You might be introduced into a signifigant group or network of people that can influence the way you see the world and our existence.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): In closing 2017, Taurus, you can reflect on the many transformations both personally and fiancially that have occured in the past 12 months. It would aid you to take all of that information and experience to move into a positive direction for 2018. You’ve worked really hard and have accumulated numerous hours in your think tank. Devise a plan of how you are going to transmit all of that important data into your occupational empire. Winners are not people who never fail, they are people who never quit.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): As our magician of the zodiac, Gemini, you know how to turn dust into gold. You have the ability to use all of your resources, whether they are personal, finanical, or professional to attain that higher goal. Mind you, there have been some set backs in 2017 but, then again, look at all that you’ve achieved. Keep learning, because your are like a sponge for knowledge. Then do what you do best, take all of that wisdom to teach and share with your colleagues and comrades.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): It appears that 2018 will begin with you creating or collaberating a future alliance of sorts. There could be some restrictions and rules to follow before entering into a contractual alignment. Since being responsible is one of your attributes, consult with an elder or someone you respect to proof read the fine print. By second week of January there may be a solution concerning one aspect of your life that closes. Remember, a new edition begins at the end of your comfort zone.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If you think that 2017 was busy, wait until you see what is in store for you in the next twelve months. This month all of your personal planets are in your sixth house of your work and health. You’re probably so busy that you won’t have time to read this but, if you do, make sure you make a schedule this month before the days run away from you. It’s difficut to be a task master with your creative heart but, by failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept 22): “Service” should be your middle name, Virgo, because that is usually where you feel comfortable. Taking care and seeing to the needs of others is what you feel you do best. However, begin this new year thinking about what fills your life with joy. Take up a creative endeavor, or restructure your finances, or design the new love of your life.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Has your personal family tree been spiking your interest as this new year begins? Are you curious about your ancestors, the history of the house you were born in, or why your Grandfather chose the profession he had? With all of the inner planets in Capricorn this month transiting in your house of home & family, the energy of your family history and elders could come to the surface. Learning your family tree is the key to unlocking who you are.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): With the planet Mars hovering over your first house this month with the help of Jupiter, you can find new routes towards expansion and success in your area of personal growth. One area you can work on is your struggle to convey your principles. With the inner planets moving into Capricorn this month, you feel as if your vocal chords have been removed. Speak your truth, even if your voice shakes.
SAGITTARIUS(Nov. 22-Dec.21): Less is more, your theme for the first month of 2018. Purge, donate, and create space in your life. Have you ever heard the phrase, “a cluttered room is a cluttered mind?” Start this year off with ridding yourself of whatever and whomever is no longer serving you. When you let go, you are creating room for what is meant to be. The freedom of that alone attracts new experiences and possibilities with a clear mind.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The planet Saturn shifted into his home sign of Capricorn on December 20th and will complete it’s transit in December of 2020. For over two years this aspect will be colliding with your natal Sun. What new personal structures will you build or tear down? If you are thinking about rebuilding your life, now is the time to start the process with a goal of perfecting your technique and envisioning results a few years down the road.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): As the new year begins, Aquarius, you will experience a transformation of yourself from the extraverted socialite to a relatively somber thinker as mid month approaches. It will serve you to recharge that electric battery that supplies your thoughts and take some time to go within. The January benefits will be in meditation and quiet retrospect. Towards months end, you may feel mentally rejuvenated as you begin, yet again, your Uranian routine of unpredictable designs towards new horizons.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You will start 2018 off with a good handle on your career. It appears that your co workers think highly of you and the boss appreciates all of your hard work. Towards mid month, you can find yourself rubbing elbows in a social setting while still making strides professionally. If you want to influence them, then charm them until you’ve convinced them of the value your expertise offers.
