FEBRUARY Scopes – Wake UP! crows the Rooster:)

Happy Year of the Rooster!

Since Mercury was still retrograde at the start of 2017, the Lunar New Year that kicked off with the Jan 28th Aquarian New Moon feels to me much more like the real fresh start, a palpable energetic shift ushering in a wild set of waves.  In keeping with the Chinese Zodiac theme, I was planning to pop in the famous “Chinese curse” – “May you live in interesting times” – highly appropriate in sentiment, but, as it turns out, also rather apropos in other ways in this “alternative facts” era – turns out this phrase has no known origin in Chinese language or culture and is actually made up by an Englishman…go figure!;)

Meditating on the messages of this fiery red rooster year in the sleepy Mexican village that is my winter home, it finally hit me: what do roosters do for us?  They WAKE US UP, loudly, often at really annoying hours for a night-owl like me.  And, looking around at the wider world, many of us feel like we’ve been shaken rather rudely out of our solipsistic slumbers…grrr… But, there’s no time to mourn the shredded blanket of illusion.  Mars, the planet of action and motivation entered its home terrain, the fiery sign of Aries on Jan 28th, just as the New Moon ushered in the rooster’s rule.  Sleep is simply not an option, at least not till March 10th when Mars takes a breather in much more mellow Taurus.

This Martian mojo can move mountains, helping us create massive change in a matter of moments.  It’s high-octane fuel that should come with a warming label: “handle with CONSCIOUS CARE”.  We’re all in for a crash-course in personal pyrotechnics this month.  On a practical level, when you feel like you’re just about to “blow your top”, take a deep breath and go for a run instead…or any sport that helps you release the tension…perfect time to lose those stubborn holiday pounds, instead of losing your temper:)

Roosters are also known to “strut their stuff”, parading proudly in their finest feathers.  2017 calls on all of us to be more bold and public, to crow out courageously and risk being SEEN in our full glory.  This takes a ton of “cojones” (Spanish for balls;)  But, it doesn’t mean we got to be cocky in that annoying macho manner (though, yeah, we’ll see more of that this year than most).  Revealing our authentic passion, putting our heart on the line requires courage of a different, deeper kind – the guts to be vulnerable and real, to risk seeming ridiculous or “way out there”.  The root of “courage” is “coeur”, HEART in Latin.

Rooroosters-1801620_1920sters walk with their big bold heart front and center.  We can borrow a bit of their instinctive confidence and add our voice to the wake-up choir!   Sure, it may not sound pretty, this cacophony of cries, but out of Chaos new creation comes.

The New Moon of Aug 2nd wakes up the playful beast within, stirring the urge to create your world anew with wild and joyful gusto. Mars, your impetuous cosmic patron emerges from the long dark trek trough Scorpio’s underworld the same day, impatient to explore new horizons in fiery Sag. Whoo-hoo, you can smell the fresh breeze…so much lighter and brighter out here! The past months of slow inner burn have torched all that’s not essential, leaving you standing naked in your soul’s searing mirror. Your aim is clear, almost inevitable…this New Moon urges you to get cracking with all the courage and commitment you’ve got. Saturn sends a solid beam of support – the seeds you plant right now have serious long-term potential. Let your brave heart lead the way as you play the grand game of creation! Optimism and realism in perfect balance – this kind of stellar surf deserves to be danced with:)

August 18th Full Moon Lunar Eclipse invites you to throw a party for all your favorite peeps. Sparks will fly as you rub elbows with an electric mix of quirky collaborators, fabulous fantasy creatures and magnanimous muses. “It’s more fun together” is definitely the name of the game. The more you let your guard down, allowing your wild and wonderful self to speak and share without a censor, the more magic can manifest – a brilliant breakthrough, a potent business alliance or a steamy late-summer romance are all seeds “in the stars” under this liberating Moon. This month stirs up your creative cauldron big time – add your own special spice, dear adventurous Aries, and watch what bubbles up!:)

Dear TAURUS, Venus, your own gorgeous cosmic patron has been busy as your personal design guru, helping to create a castle fit for a queen. You might have spent a good chunk of your summer vacation on a DIY project to spruce up your nest, or devoured hours surfing ads in search for a larger lair. There are larger longings at work – an urge to find an abundant abode for your Soul, a sense of rootedness that draws from a deeper well. The bright and hopeful New Moon on Aug 2nd hands you a key to that special space, hinting at a home within that can’t be bought or sold. Once you settle on this inner throne, finding the exterior image of your own Garden of Eden will be easy. Saturn sends a solid beam of support – seeds planted now have serious staying power.

Full Moons are a celebration, a culmination of months of growth and work: think back to what you seeded in the waning days of winter, around the Feb 8th wild and wacky New Moon – now’s the harvest time. This Moon is an eclipse – very precisely aligned with the Earth’s axis. Eclipses signal more substantial shifts and changes. What part of your public role have you outgrown? Perhaps you’re ready to embrace and showcase even more of your uniqueness, less afraid to seem a bit wacky or weird?

Dear GEMINI, after a fun flurry of summertime socials, Mercury, your quick-witted cosmic patron landed in down-to-earth Virgo on July 30th, pulling your focus to practical matters for the month ahead. Building a solid, sustainable foundation moves up the priorities list – you may find yourself surfing real-estate ads, dreaming of a more commodious castle, or hitting the hardware store in search of smart solutions to refresh your current nest. The bright and hopeful New Moon on Aug 2nd lights the fuse on the next round of creative fireworks – so many possible plans, it’s easy to be dazzled by this dance of ideas. But too much of a good thing can leave you spinning in place, dizzy and distracted. Steady Saturn comes to rescue, pointing towards your partner as a sensible sounding-board, a much-needed voice of reason. Together you can hammer out a plan that’s both playfully brilliant and sustainably solid.

Good news are on the way as Mercury meets Jupiter on Aug 22nd , but it may be wise to keep your options open and refrain from signing on the dotted line just yet – Mercury goes retrograde Aug 30th, looking to dig up extra details on the deal. The end of the month may find you juggling several perfectly lovely plans. A natural master of multitasking, you’re born to handle change with grace – flexibility could be your middle name:) The Aquarian Full Moon Eclipse on Aug 18th reveals a glimpse of the grander pattern, helping you see the forest behind the trees. Use this time to mix and mingle and mine your best peeps for ideas and insight – brilliant and quite possibly quirky solutions can be the key to your practical conundrums this month, dear cosmically creative Gemini.

The hidden comes to light – perhaps you’re more powerful than you’ve let on, dear cozy Crab!:) Taking a deep breath and revealing your authentic awesomeness doesn’t have alienate your intimate other(s). In fact, openly owning your magic and mojo can pave the way to a sudden promotion or an offer of brilliantly original professional collaboration.

Dear LEO, Happy Birthday! Without your creative sparkle, courageous heart and generous smile, where would we be….the world would be much colder, duller place indeed:) The bright New Moon on August 2nd casts a fresh beam of light on your own sign, signaling a rebirth in your heart – it’s your cosmic Birthday present, a boost of new potential and promise.

Working for it fair and square makes every mile add a drop of sweet satisfaction to your cup of well-earned worth.

As planets shift to Virgo, turning to your posse of practical, down-to-earth peeps becomes the next crucial step. Mercury, the messenger planet meets generous Jupiter on Aug 22nd – asking for advice and sharing your strategies can open up plenty of profitable possibilities. Venus and Jupiter team up on Aug 27th to weave a golden web of support and creative cross-pollination around you.   Trust your gut – you know which friends truly have your back through thick and thin.

Enjoy the climb, dear Scorpio, and know that despite the many solitary hours of dedication and toil, you’re not alone on the path!

Dear SAGITTARIUS, Mars, the cosmic action-hero bursts into your sign on Aug 2nd, giving your mojo a major boost. For the first three weeks of the month, Mars covers ground already traversed in April and May, during his retrograde escapade – you’ll get a chance to finally make some progress on projects that stumbled or stalled back then.

Whether it’s taking on a leadership role at work or volunteering your wit and wisdom to a prestige project, it’s time to share your wares with the world.

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on Aug 18th helps this quest for clarity by aiming its beam on your values and worth. Are you willing to see how unique your genuine contribution is to our world? You get plenty of kudos for practical ambition and stubborn stamina, but are you ready to accept accolades (and more tangible, monetary rewards:) for your sheer brilliance?

These questions can unlock an avalanche of abundance in the coming year as generous Jupiter crosses the top of your chart on Sept 9th, launching into the public eye. Last week of August offers stellar surf in preparation – Jupiter meets Mercury (Aug 22nd) and Venus (Aug 27th).

More than anything, you’ve learned that sometimes you don’t know it all – genuine curiosity coupled with honest humility can take you farther than any grand and cocky theory:) Gather your wits and wisdom this month, dear tenacious Mountain Goat, and prepare for a big leap in September!

Don’t be afraid to drop a dated strategy or two! This Eclipse signals a substantial recalibration of how you present yourself.

JUNE 2016 Cosmic Wave SCOPES

Dear ARIES, after the meandering pace of May, you’re probably more than ready to spring into action:) Hope you took some time to simply chill and BE, to clear your mind of needless chatter and tune into the practical wisdom of your body the past month. Seeds planted in these quiet moments are now bursting into bloom – with the planetary party gathering in curious Gemini, your brain is buzzing like a beehive again and your social schedule is filling up fast.  The New Moon on June 4th invites you to explore the wondrous world of words with clear and conscious intent. Venus, the Lady of Love and Luck graces this Moon with extra powers of attraction – you’re much more aware of your desires and not afraid to ask for their fulfillment. It’s time to wave the modern-day magic wand – a pen –to craft your own potent incantation, spell or a prayer! The “big planets” – Saturn, Jupiter and Neptune get involved in this game of creation, amping up your ability to conjure up momentous change. An air of excitement as well as instability permeates the moment – you’re asked to be courageous and cautious, flexible yet responsible, with your feet on the ground and head in the clouds. If you’re feeling a bit bewildered by it all, remember last month’s lesson – take a deep breath and touch base with your gut – your body knows the way to your truest desires.

The June 20th Full Moon is like a graduation – a rich harvest of wisdom from months of intense inner and outer work. It illuminates the bigger picture, revealing the grander pattern behind the twists and turns. You’re no longer a student – the skills you have mastered are ready to use, whether you FEEL ready or not:) A potent professional opportunity is in the making as Jupiter, the planet of abundance shakes hands with Pluto, the cosmic powerbroker on June 26th. A possibility to put your personal mastery into public service may present itself, urging you to BE the change you wish to see in the world. Mars, your own cosmic patron turns direct on June 29th, unleashing your passion. As the warrior planet flexes his mighty muscle, it’s up to you to use this mojo with conscious intent. The mind is mightier than the sword this month, dear impetuous Aries!

Dear TAURUS, Mercury, the divine messenger, offered you a rather original Birthday present last month – a magic mirror in which to see yourself as you truly BE yourself, inviting you to let the layers of projections (who and how you should be) drop like old outfits off your beautiful being. More than most years, this Birthday Season gave you a chance to be reborn in your own primordial perfection.  The process might have felt like a purge, a gradual cleanse of both body and mind – not always easy, but, boy do you feel lighter when you’re done! Now you’re ready to put this brand new Self to practical use, and the New Moon of June 4th opens up plenty of opportunities to do so. Venus, your own gorgeous cosmic patron graces this Moon with extra powers of attraction – you’re much more aware of your desires and not afraid to ask for their fulfillment. The stars align to increase your income streams if you’re willing to work the magic of words, gathering your best peeps to chat and share ideas. Cooperation and flexibility are keys to riding this jumpy and joyous wave, dear stubborn Bull! Look at the bees buzzing in the blooms – they’re creating a sweet symphony together, each happily performing their part.   You can gather plenty of golden nectar if you BE a bit more like the bees this month:)

The Full Moon of June 20th offers a chance to put a “big picture” financial matter to rest. Wisdom and careful consideration is needed – accepting other people’s positions as they are, refraining from any bullying or power plays. Don’t worry, you can afford to be generous! With the multitude of seeds you’ve set free in the New Moon brainstorms, new money trees are starting to sprout:) Don’t cling to any arrangements that have outlived their day. Yes, flexibility may not come so naturally, but this year’s Mercurial Birthday makeover made sure you’re not the same old Bull:) Enjoy exercising your freshly upgraded mental mojo this month and watch in wonder at the change you’re capable of creating!

Dear GEMINI , Happy Birthday! With Mercury, your quick-witted cosmic patron scooting forwards again, you’re out of the slow lane at last. Winds of change whisk you up, carrying you through the gateway of the June 4th New Moon – your cosmic Birthday present and emotional reboot. Venus, the Lady of Love and Luck graces this Moon with extra powers of attraction – you’re much more aware of your desires and not afraid to ask for their fulfillment. It’s time to wave the modern-day magic wand – a pen – to craft your own potent incantation, spell or prayer! The “big planets” – Saturn, Jupiter and Neptune get involved in this game of creation, amping up your ability to conjure up momentous change. An air of excitement and instability permeates the month – you’re asked to be courageous and cautious, flexible yet responsible, with your feet on the ground and head in the clouds. Every area of your life is ready to be restructured, following your deepest desires. Luckily, with your innate ability to perform brilliant feats of mental magic, you’re able to juggle it all, smiling to receive our incredulous applause:)

Full Moon on June 20th highlights the partnership sector of your chart. You’ve learned and grown a lot in this area in the past 6 months. Now it’s time to step into a more mature level of mastery. Decisions need to be made, postponing a resolution is no longer a wise path. Yes, you love to keep your options open, but flexing too much can let others bend you to their will. This Moon brings clarity to both personal and business collaborations, allowing you to choose a more certain course. A potent business opportunity is in the making as Jupiter, the planet of abundance shakes hands with Pluto, the cosmic powerbroker on June 26th – a real estate deal can find the proper backing, or you may discover a better way to manage your available assets.   Time to put that Birthday mojo to practical use, dear magician of the mind!

Dear CANCER, the weeks before your Birthday call you deep into your interior castle to explore the way you weave your world with thoughts and words. With lovely Venus as your guide, you can feel comfortable enough to dive into this dreamy realm, trusting there’s treasure to be found. Of course, any mythical quest has its dangers and dragons – you have to cut through the cobwebs of bygone patterns of belief and avoid getting sucked into the mire of melancholy memories. The first days of the month may indeed find you sorting thru some “stuff”, as the Moon wanes into darkness. Hints of where the treasure may lie arrive after the June 4th New Moon, as Venus crosses the path of the Sun. A long-forgotten longing awakens in your heart, fueled by fresh hope. As the crescent Moon appears in the sky, your desire to create a life of beauty starts to crack its cozy cocoon, seeking visible expression. Pick up a promising creative project that’s been gathering dust, or start fresh with a new idea.   As Anaïs Nin so aptly wrote: “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

Venus emerges from the underworld on June 17th to prepare for your Birthday party. The Sun follows on June 20th, ushering in the Summer Solstice and the start of the season to celebrate YOU. Full Moon glows in the sky that night, making the moment even more magical. A cycle is ending, a new one beginning… take a breath at the threshold, and off you go! A potent positive wave is gathering strength in your closest relationships – generous caring communication can work wonders around June 25-27th. The more you dare to express your highest ideals and deepest desires, the stronger grows your common ground. With Venus in your sign, you can inspire your loved ones to see a more beautiful set of possibilities, inside and out. Mercury moves into your sign on June 29th, tuning the whole world to your intuitive wavelength – it will be easier to weave a new way with the magic of words. Make the most of your special season, dear cosmically creative Cancer!

Dear LEO, with Mercury, the messenger planet purposefully plowing ahead again, any setbacks or delays in your worldly work are ready to unwind. Hopefully you managed to make the most of this downtime, taking a step back from the fray to map out your grander goals and strategies. Now it’s time to share these insights with your potent posse – as the planetary party gathers in chatty Gemini, communication is the name of the game. With Venus catching up to the Sun, you can mix business with pleasure as your social life speeds up.   New Moon on June 4th brings a fresh flurry of invites. There’s so much going on, it may be hard to decide which gathering to grace with your sunny presence:) Use your inner compass as a guide, pointing the needle toward jubilant JOY. What lights you up the most is also best for business – sharing your enthusiasm and excitement, you’ll attract just the right kind of quirky co-creators and colorful characters to advance your plot. Enjoy being the social butterfly this month – your flight is far from frivolous, dear lovable Leo!

Full Moon on June 20th brings clarity and closure to a set of creative endeavors. If you’ve spent the past month or two digging thru your files, reworking past projects and rehashing old ideas, you’ll know by the end of this month if you’re finally “done”:)  If the result looks like a failure, don’t punish yourself by trying to salvage it out of sheer stubbornness. Let it go, burn the tattered pages on the Solstice fire! You’ll be free to start anew, to fall in love again and again. Speaking of matters of the heart, this midsummer Moon can cast a clear beam on your romantic adventures as well, helping you separate petty players from real knights in shining armor. Ripping off the rose-colored glasses can reveal a not-so-pretty picture (like, geez, “what was I thinking?”;) Again, don’t beat yourself up, dear! Giving yourself the royal pardon helps you move on to merrier meadows!   There are plenty of birds and bees buzzing around, you won’t be bored this summer for sure;)

Dear VIRGO, with Mercury purposefully plowing ahead again and Venus attracting attention at the top of your chart, your career is heating up. Insights and ideas from last month’s meditative meanders are ready for the test of Earthly application. An air of excitement as well as instability permeates the month – you’re asked to be courageous and cautious, flexible yet responsible, with your feet on the ground and head in the clouds. New Moon on June 4th brings a fresh flurry of opportunities to contribute your greatest in the game of creation. Keep your eyes and ears open – a juicy position can open up at a moment’s notice, requiring you to jump on a cascading wave of change.   Venus, the Lady of Love and Luck graces this Moon with extra powers of attraction, urging you to express your true desires.  Use the power of words; wave the modern-day magic wand – a pen –to craft your own potent incantation, spell or a prayer! Remember, you have Jupiter in your posse – don’t settle for the safety of the same old job if it no longer sparks your heart.

Summer Solstice arrives on a bright Full Moon on June 20th, shedding light on your Earthy foundation. This turning of the seasons can bring a sense of clarity and closure – perhaps you’re literally done with your present abode, ready to follow the rainbow to greener pastures (the new job may well pull you away!). Or, on the internal plane, a long-standing tension in your tribe can find a welcome resolution in wise acceptance, agreeing to disagree and disengage from the struggle and strife. You’re ready to reap the harvest of experience and move on. Potent new possibilities await with a supportive beam between Pluto and Jupiter on June 26th ­ – risking to open your heart to a brave new person or a creative project can pay off big time, if you dare. Point your inner compass towards genuine JOY as you sail these winds of change – your heart won’t steer you astray!

Dear LIBRA, your wanderlust is well awake this month – the planets are plotting to widen your world, inside and out. With Venus, your own gorgeous cosmic patron as your guide, any adventure you embark on can feel like a love affair with Life – hitting the road for the sheer JOY of it is superbly supported by the stars. Fresh seeds of possibility swirl in the air as the New Moon of June 4th tickles the curiosity to venture beyond your intellectual boundaries. A brilliant new direction of study may emerge from casual conversations, just “shooting the breeze” at chill summer parties. As Venus catches up with the Sun on June 6th, the proverbial “lightbulb” can pop on in your head.

Winds of change are everywhere this month, it’s best to keep your eyes and ears open, and your mind in the most open and flexible mode:)

Venus crosses the top of your chart on June 17th, attracting ample opportunities to put this newly acquired knowledge to use. The following three weeks are golden for guiding your career to a course towards your dreams and desires. The Summer Solstice Full Moon brings a sense of clarity and closure, allowing you to drop distracting thought habits and embrace a wider vision of life. On a practical level, you’d do well to weed out your contact list and minimize all manner of extraneous information (newsletters, feeds, etc). There’s a difference between enlightened curiosity and omnivorous hunger for info. Discerning that difference, moment-to-moment helps you keep your eyes on the prize.   Point the needle of your compass towards your truest joy and you won’t steer wrong!

Dear SCORPIO, seeds of potent partnerships planted past month are ready to spread their roots. With Venus as your guiding light, this journey into the tender and touchy terrain of physical intimacy can lead to a feast of deep delights. However, the path to this desirable destination is neither straight nor smooth:) Communication is key to clearing all the twists and turns – trusting your dance partner enough to ask some genuine questions. The same dynamic extends to your commercial co-creations – there are brilliant possibilities to tap multiple streams of “moola” if you can hash out a mutually rewarding agreement.

Venus, the Lady of Love and Luck graces this Moon with extra powers of attraction – your passion gets a potent boost;) This is not the time to be shy, dear secretive Scorpio! Ask for what you desire – use the modern-day magic wand – a pen –to craft your own incantation, spell or a prayer!

Meanwhile, Mars, the warrior planet has stumbled back into your sign on his long retrograde romp. Projects and plans from way back in February can pop back to the surface, requiring a review. Perhaps you missed a crucial plot point, an “a-ha!” moment that’s been patiently waiting your reluctant return:) Use this glance in the rearview mirror to get really honest with yourself – aim the intense beam of intelligent curiosity at your own secret strategies. Don’t worry, you don’t have to reveal your hand to anyone else;) Mars turns direct on June 29th, unleashing your passion and amping up your energy level big time. As the warrior planet flexes his mighty muscle, you’re now in a much better position to use this mojo with clear and conscious intent. Remember, the magic of the mind is mightier than the sword this month – choose your words wisely!

Dear SAGITTARIUS, with Venus gracing the committed relationship sector of your chart, your special someone can be a genuine source of lightness and JOY this month. The weight of Saturn in your sign has caused cracks of grumpiness to appear in your normally so delightfully buoyant demeanor. Allow your sweetheart to tickle your funny-bone a bit, to coax you into a much needed moment of silliness and perhaps even (don’t tell Saturn!;) an evening of indulgent passion. All the extra work and duties on your shoulders may make you bristle at such a flight of fancy. Venus whispers in your ear: “A better plan is to yield to a bit of pleasure, the work can wait till tomorrow:)” Fresh seeds of passionate possibilities swirl in the air after the June 4th New Moon.

A potent professional opportunity is in the making as Jupiter, your own generous guide shakes hands with Pluto, the cosmic powerbroker on June 26th. This could move your money game into the big leagues if you’re ready to put all your skills, wit and wisdom into play. There’s indeed no way of getting around work this month, but that doesn’t mean you can’t turn your life from drudgery to delight. Let your nearest and dearest in on your ambitions, sharing the highs and the lows and the far-out fantasies. Adventure is almost always more fun together!

Dear CAPRICORN, May’s mellow and playful waves got your creative cauldron cooking. Now it’s time to test the brand new brew. Practical application of past month’s insights and ideas is the name of the game. Sounds straightforward enough… but, it may turn out to be anything but:) With planets gathering in quick-thinking Gemini, there are tons of details to attend to, but plans and blueprints seem to shift and change in right front of your eyes. June 4th New Moon brings a fresh flurry of ideas, provoking another revision in your routine. This topsy-turvy time can really test your patience, but grumbling will get you nowhere:) There is a method to this madness, if you can shush the chatter of competing thoughts and sense the larger symphony, the underlying melody that drives all this movement. Meditation may well be your magic wand this month – a few conscious breaths is all it takes to return to your center. With the wild winds of change swirling around you, you can stand at the still point, smiling like a Zen master, watching the world go round.

Mastering the magic of the mind is on the agenda at the Solstice Full Moon on June 20th, which brings a sense of clarity and closure.

If you top running from a ghost, and turn around to face it, you can actually absorb its power, regaining strength you may have lost long time ago.   With Saturn signed on to sweep out the spooks from your personal underworld till December 2017, this is not a short-term strategy. You may as well use this month to practice a few brave moves, dear courageously capable Capricorn!   Becoming a ninja of consciousness is one of the brilliant possibilities, if you can commit to tireless training. It all starts with a single conscious breath:)

Dear AQUARIUS, love is in the air! Cupid is cavorting about you on his cute little wings, ready to shoot an amorous arrow:) Warm summer evenings call for all manner of fun and mischief – playing hookie from work to party in the park with your posse or catching a sunset movie on a rooftop, mixing with a mélange of gorgeous creatives.

New Moon on June 4th adds fresh fuel to the fire – you can fall in love over and over again, all in the same instant.   Conversation flows like bubbling champagne, flipping from frivolous to profound.

The days around June 4th New Moon can provide particularly “happy hunting”:) Venus lends her grace and style to this Moon’s magic, sending you fresh flashes of inspiration. The “big planets” – Saturn, Jupiter and Neptune get involved, revealing a deeper layer to this dig – as you search grandma’s shed for that vintage chair, you may stir up long lost stories and misty memories.
