New Year Horoscopes 2017

Mars and Neptune merge which can certainly bring out the hopeless  mess in all of us…. but better that than hopelessness! Stay grounded, take deep breaths and watch for the 8th when Mercury Retrograde shifts. It’s rather wobbly this week, but if we go slow, retrace our steps, and simplify as much as possible, love will prevail!

Here’s a quick interview I did with KRON 4 in San Francisco about the year ahead:

 

 

Horoscopes for the Week of

January 2-8th, 2016 by Sherene Vismaya

Aries:

Welcome to 2017, Aries! So much is shifting and the year has only just begun. First off, you are craving serious solo time. You’ve got both Mars and Venus stacking up in your house of sleep, dreams and retreat this week making the thought of hiding under the covers extremely appealing. The Mercury Retrograde is still going strong and creating major confusion in the communication department. Plus, travel delays continue. After Wednesday, people might be even more blunt with their tongue (including you). Watch your thoughts and words with the utmost vigilance this week, darling. Opinions are a beautiful thing, but everyone has one.

Taurus:

It’s a New Year and a whole new world, Taurus. Your social life is at the top of your priority list this week. Friends, collaborators and networking galore is where it’s at. You’ll find the most sweetness when in the company of your best mates. This is definitely not a week to go solo. That said, communication is still tricky due to the last few days of Mercury Retrograde. Conversations can too easily turn to chaos and even fights when opinions clash. When in doubt, agree to disagree, Taurus. There’s really no reason to force an issue at the expense of a relationship.

Gemini:

2017 is off to a fast and furious start, Gemini. First off, your career is getting a super sweet boost of energy starting this week. Use those visionary powers for stellar dreaming and scheming. You will have more than enough inspiration to see you through for the next few weeks. Communication is still messy with significant others due to the last week of the Mercury Retrograde. It’s always good to double check that the other party actually understood what you were trying to say. When in doubt, say it twice and better yet—deliver it in person so they can read your body language too.

Cancer:

2017 is here and the wanderlust is setting the stage right from the get-go. The travel longing started late last year and just seems to be getting stronger despite your classic homebody tendencies. You’re actually dying for a major change in scenery, and the further away (read: exotic and warm) the better. Communication has been extremely tricky over the past few weeks, but you’ll be happy to feel that shifting as Mercury Retrograde is almost over. Now it’s important to be mindful about exchanges with coworkers and anyone who works for you as the misunderstandings are more likely to occur in that arena. Make sure you are not misquoted.

Leo:

It’s 2017—finally! You’re feeling super psyched on getting everything on your to-do list into the world as quickly as possible. You’ll have all the energy and creativity necessary to go-go-go for the next few weeks. The only tricky area continues to be communication. Lovers or loved ones could be especially confusing this week with mixed messages. Just because they seem totally emphatic with what they have to say doesn’t mean they have any idea what they are talking about. Mercury is still in retrograde after all. When in doubt, clarify and have the conversation again (preferably in person).

Virgo:

2017 is here—let the projects and list-making begin! Your hyper “do do do” mode hits the scenes immediately. That’s because your current list of dreams is endless and there are only 365 days in 2017. Plus, your relationships are going to be vying for most of your time and energy over the next few weeks. It’s easy to lose track of where your life ends and another’s needs begins, so you’ll need a firm grip on your own planner. Mercury Retrograde is almost over but this week could be one of the worst when it comes to confusion, messes and other mishaps. Chaos around the domestic front is especially prominent now, so don’t be surprised if you spiral into neurotic control-freak mode in an attempt to keep it altogether.

Libra:

It’s 2017 and there is no rest for the weary, Libra! That’s because you’ve got big plans. You prefer a more balanced and relaxing schedule, but alas daily life is extremely demanding. Luckily, it’s just as inspiring and glamorous as it is non-stop. You’ll have to enforce regular downtime to retain your much valued equipoise. The Mercury Retrograde is in its final week which means messy but almost over. Your own personal communication is especially affected this week, so focus more on listening and less on preaching. When your opinions feel especially strong, bite your tongue—just for the time being, darling. Discord is inevitable when so much miscommunication is in the air.

Scorpio:

Money rules your world in 2017. This week is no exception. In fact, the obsession with getting your financial arena in tip-top shape reaches new heights now. You have x-ray vision into how you can best revamp your overall banking strategies this week, so take full advantage of this insight. Sit down with your accounting records and let the magic begin. On a more glamorous note, your love and creative life is getting a fabulous boost from Mars for the next few weeks. Pleasure is your end all be all, but why let that take you out financially?

Sagittarius:

Ready, set—-2017, Sagittarius! You made sure you were at the top of your game before 2016 was over. All of your hard work and perseverance are totally paying off all year long and this is only the beginning. That said, you’re probably in dire need of some rest and retreat time now. It’s almost like you needed to cross the threshold of the New Year before you could give yourself permission to slow down. You’ll be especially enamored of your home, bed and bath over the next few weeks. Don’t guilt-trip yourself if you need to recoup at home for a minute.

Capricorn:

Your season has arrived, Cappie. The beginning of the New Year is always your fave and your best time to shine. You have the Sun lighting up your stars and you’re all about the big dreams now. Of course the current Mercury Retrograde in your sign has been slowing you down more than you’d like, but it’s also allowed you to review, revise and revamp your entire image in a way that makes you so 2017 ready! Plus, this is the final week of Mercury Retrograde. Communication gets sweeter and even borders on sheer poetry this week. You’re poetry in motion.

Aquarius:

It has finally arrived, Aquarius! Just when you thought 2016 would never quit. You might still be peering out from under the covers not quite ready to make the jump. Nothing wrong with that. Sometimes a little retreat time is the perfect prep for stellar success. Communication with friends could be a bit off this week due to the Mercury Retrograde finale (almost finished!) This is actually an excellent week to get your finances together. Sit down long enough to feel creative about your current money situation. Accounting doesn’t have to be drudgery and depression. You can even make numbers magical and fun.

Pisces:

Welcome to a year that is no longer 2016, Pisces! The stars are totally lighting up your world in sweet and energizing ways from the onset this year! Venus in Pisces is bringing the beauty, love and extra cash to get you off on the right foot. Plus, you still have Mars powering up your constellation fortifying you with courage and determination to stay on top of your physical game and blow away the competition. Of course you never consider yourself a competitive person, but why not strive for excellence regardless? The Mercury Retrograde is ALMOST finished. Hang tight for one last week of potential communication chaos.

Holiday Horoscopes

Aries:

 

Aries:

Slow and low is the tempo this week, Aries. It’s tempting and rather easy to lose your cool and your personal possessions compliments of yet another Mercury Retrograde on tap this week. If you’ve been dying to upgrade your career plans and branding, this is your time. After Wednesday, the focus moves to your professional goals. As usual, you’ll be ready to jump-start the competition before 2017. Mars (your ruler) is inducing a poetry in motion feel but watch for slushy emotional scenes. You could suddenly feel more like a bleeding-heart empath than a warrior. Maybe it’s time to take a breather from the battleground.

Taurus:

You might be ready to jet for the holidays this week, but be sure to triple check your itineraries, Taurus. Yep, yet another Mercury Retrograde is in full swing and that means delays, communication snags, lost baggage and missed connections. Take it slow, retrace your steps and expect a few do-overs for the next few weeks. Pay attention to your possessions too for safe keeping. The Sun moves into your travel zone on Wednesday to inspire your next series of adventures. You’ll feel less all over the map during the latter half of the week. Your social life is about to blow up with plans, so pace yourself with enough down time. You hate being rushed.

Gemini:

Communication is quite a disaster this week, Gemini. Another Mercury Retrograde has arrived in time for the holidays. Yup, it’s that time of year again when it’s essential to back up your electronics, double check your receipts, and retrace your steps. It might be harder to slow dow and focus during the holiday hustle, so leave extra time for snags. The Winter Solstice on Wednesday initiates the official passage into winter in the Northern Hemisphere. No wonder your hibernation instincts are kicking in and extra beauty rest is irresistible. Lovely levels of inspiration kick in during the latter half of the week. Career crafting is on your mind from now until 2017.

Cancer:

Relationship talks require your undivided attention and patience this week, Cancer. By all means avoid texting your feelings and any trickier versions of expression that could be taken out of context. When in doubt, wait until you can sit down and have a real heart to heart. The final Mercury Retrograde is in full effect this week and throwing chaos into your communication mix with significant others. If there’s been an important conversation you’ve been avoiding, now is the time to finally work it through (in person only!) The Winter Solstice arrives on Wednesday and puts you into partnership mode for the next several weeks. Finally, travel fever kicks in later in the week breaking you straight out of any homebody habits. You’ve got your eye on adventures galore for 2017!

Leo:

Your work load is real this week, Libra. Down to the second planning might be your only recourse under such extreme pressure. You can expand time by carving out your schedule by the hour with clear intention and commitment. This will also help you navigate the tricky snags of this week’s big astro event, the final Mercury Retrograde of 2017. You’ll be feeling the chaos mainly in the realm of your day to day scheduling so double check your calendar details often. Paperwork and deadlines could also get a bit messy if you’re not on it, Leo. On a more poetic and romantic note, the last half of the week is perfect for your favorite mode of escape.

Virgo:

Keep calm and carry essential oils this week, Virgo. There’s one final pesky little Mercury Retrograde arriving just in time to throw your holiday plans into chaos and confusion. Flexibility with scheduling and expecting others to forget will save your sanity. You may be rethinking some of your romantic plans over the next few weeks. The best way to deal with the ensuing miscommunications is to avoid complexity and slow down as much as possible. The more time you make for resting, reviewing and retreating, the better. Romance and partnership themes take center stage for the next few weeks. Don’t be surprised if old lovers make an appearance.

Libra:

Ancient family themes that you thought were archived for the duration have a way of rearing their head this week, Libra. The final Mercury Retrograde is the big astro-event and setting the crazy tone for the week. Communication around family and domestic issues could prove to be more confusing than clarifying. Expect to go over the same topic more than once until everyone is on the same page. On a positive note, the Winter Solstice on Wednesday ushers in positive energy at home over the next few weeks. Spending time with family just feels good (even if you feel like you’re all speaking ten different languages).

Scorpio:

Communication is everything this week, Scorpio. Watch your thoughts, words and actions as if your life depended on it. The final Mercury Retrograde kicks in and is sure to throw your world of texting, scheduling and electronics into one snag after another. Keep your wits about you, darling. It’s nothing personal, it’s just messy out there. More levity arrives after the Winter Solstice on Wednesday. You’ll be more apt to see the bright side, despite any recent misunderstandings. The best news of the week is when your romantic and creative worlds get a fabulous planetary boost at the end of the week. The holidays are about to become incredibly dreamy and magical now.

Sagittarius:

Money is top priority this week, Sagittarius. No more excuses or procrastination maneuvers when it comes to sitting down with the bills and budget. The stars are begging you to sit down and balance that budget before you blow the bank or throw yourself into holiday spending remorse. The final Mercury Retrograde could be creating some annoying chaos around financial details for the next weeks. Stay on top of details and double-check all receipts. On the upside, the Winter Solstice arrives on Wednesday and initiates the next month of positive money-making magic in your stars. As much as you adore adventure and long-distance travel, you’ll be a homebody horse for the next few weeks.

Capricorn:

Aim to remain cool, calm and collected this week, Capricorn. The stars will do everything to test your patience now. The true tricky test comes with the Mercury Retrograde in your very own stars (which officially commences on the 19th). If you feel all kinds of backwards, upside down and sideways with your life at the moment, trust that you’re just in a potent little reset before your birthday. On Wednesday, the Sun will grace your stars for the next month at the same time that the Winter Solstice initiates the return of longer days and shorter nights in the Northern Hemisphere. Your energy will be on the rise as well. Communication might be messy with Mercury Retrograde but you won’t be lacking in imagination or poetry.
Aquarius:

You’re in your own world and it works for you this week, Aquarius. You want nothing more than as much time as possible to drift, dream and reflect on your bigger soul needs as possible. Add in the latest installment of Mercury Retrograde madness around communication and scheduling, and the idea of taking a break might be the perfect remedy for your holiday survival needs. Less is definitely more now, especially in the realms of texting and emailing. You’re getting so much insight and inspiration from your very own imagination now. You’re rethinking a lot of your plans for 2017 as well. The latter half of the week is perfect for money-making strategies.

Pisces:

Your social world is exciting but chaotic this week, Pisces. The final Mercury Retrograde of 2016 is throwing off your communication with friends and colleagues. Plus, nothing is moving according to original plan. Luckily, you’re the most adaptable sign of the zodiac, and can find creative ways of managing the mess. Your friends will be calling on you for solutions to the point where you’ll be powering off your gadgets on the hour to preserve your sanity. Not to worry, darling—Mars will be energizing your stars until January 27th to give you extra strength and courage to face and conquer anything and everything.

Winter Solstice 2016


 

We must believe that it is the darkest before the dawn of a beautiful new world. We will see it when we believe it.— Saul Aulinsky

The breaking of the darkest night, the shortest day cannot arrive soon enough. Those final days before the Winter Solstice — December 21 — tend to be the most challenging. We’d all love to stay in bed a little longer and nurse our woes a little bit harder. It’s quite tempting  to revel in some midwinter, “are the-holidays over yet” blues before the grand shift back toward the light.

If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, it feels like it’s dark outside by the time you have lunch. When the days are so short and light so scarce, it certainly can have repercussions on a psychological level. How do we keep the candle burning within? We have no choice but to be the light we wish to see in the world, especially when the world seems to be teetering on egomaniacal Alt-Right destruction.

The Solstice is a powerful time to turn inward and prepare for the big shift into a new year. The Sun also changes signs from expansive and visionary Sagittarius to practical and constructive Capricorn. Over the next few weeks, our focus will shift toward what’s useful and lasting. The current Mercury Retrograde so close to Pluto in Capricorn deepens the inner work and reflection. What did the elders have to teach us? You may be missing your grandparents and other wise teachers more than ever. Feels like we are entering a deep journey through the underworld of everything we are unconscious of in our communication, thought processes, and “mindset.” We can learn from our elders (Capricorn/Saturn). My great grandmother used to get so irritated with guests on the Johnny Carson show who would say “you know” and “like” as filler… and I caught this in my own speech habits recently. Of course this might seem like a superficial revamping of communication but there are always deeper layers to language, our choice of words, speech patterns, inflection, voice quality and even pace of speech. I realized this is the perfect opportunity over the next few weeks to really “listen” with new ears to ourselves and others and become conscious of our “voice”.

We have the opportunity to build our inner integrity and foundation now. This is one of the most powerful and spiritual days of the year as it holds all of the energy of the darkest-before-the-dawn moments of our consciousness. As Amma says: Don’t be discouraged by the darkness you see in the world: light your candle and step forward.

We have proverbially hit bottom and there is nowhere to go but up. There is a powerful rebirth taking place, a newly born moment coming out of vast darkness. The light is returning and the days will slowly begin to get longer. There is always something uplifting about knowing that we are on our way back toward spring, not to mention a year that is NOT 2016…. right around the corner. Trying to see in the dark can feel ominous. Surrendering to the unknown and staying deeply present is our best candle now and always.

Magic and Mania:: The Full Moon in Gemini

Magic and Mania

The Full Moon in Gemini and the Mutable T-Square::

December 13, 2016

Language is the Ocean in which we live-Robert Kelly

The Full Moon in Gemini arrives on the 13th of December just days after the exact conjunction of Sun-Saturn (in the opposite constellation of Sagittarius) and just days before the Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn. No wonder our schedules, deadlines and “to-do” piles are on overload. Add in the endless distractions of social media, post-election chaos and the sea of unknowns AKA: “When is 2016 going to stop being such a bitch!” Deciphering fact from fiction, reality from illusion and the pure from the fake is no mean feat under the current tricky stars.

This particular Full Moon is in a T-square with Chiron in Pisces and the Sun-Saturn in Sagittarius. The missing leg of the T is Virgo so let’s break this lunation down, Virgo style into pieces we can assimilate. The four mutable signs involved in this Full Moon can create a mix of magic, mania, and mindfulness. Look to where Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo and Pisces fall in your own horoscope to see where these energies are getting constellated in your own life and psyche at this time.

Chiron in Pisces:

Chiron in Pisces reminds us of the power of the invisible realms and the poetic basis of the imagination as instruments for healing of the subtle body. The energy behind what you say or what you choose not to say can carry stronger energetic reverberations than any concrete conversation ever could. Never underestimate the power of subtle vibrations and the intentions behind the illusory consensus reality. Healing happens when the imagination has access to the to continuous present. The space of infinite possibility one drops into when surrender happens. Easier said than done. The unconscious version of this is spacing out or getting lost in your Instagram feed for hours. Chiron in Pisces urges us to be mindful of the images you ingest. So much communication is happening on a subliminal level whether we want to acknowledge the transmissions or not. Dreams are one of the purest forms of communication from our own unconscious we have, so take note. Deep healing of some very archaic and collective wounds is possible, if we can tune in which requires selectively tuning out so much of the other background noise.

Moon in Gemini:

The binary, quicksilver, here-we-are-now-entertain-us part of the mind on the move and forever in search of sound bytes, contradictions, new sources of info, random facts and figures, gossip, new vocabulary and other such mental candy. Gemini is mutable air and could converse, think, read and spin thoughts for days. The insatiable curiosity could lead one to many a newsfeed loop that sucks hours out of your day if you let the monkey part of the mind have its way. We can’t watch every cute animal video on Facebook and wonder why our brand isn’t blowing up. Gemini is the power of the mind to choose. Do we use our thoughts or words to create heaven or hell? Is the mind under our control or does it run us into the ground with its whims and projections? Mind over chatter!

Sun and Saturn in Sagittarius:

As mutable fire, when left to its own devices, Sagittarius would eternally roam the ends of the earth searching for truth and excitement without limit. With Saturn on the Archer’s back, the “reining it in” joy kill is inevitable. Streamlining our vision and accepting the limits of time is an ongoing theme while Saturn helps our inner Sagittarius spirit to mature and prioritize our ten thousand passions.  Sagittarius helps us to walk our talk. In truth, the Sagittarius part of our psyche would love to experience everything without limitation. It’s the part of us that wants to do and see it all.

Missing Leg in Virgo:

It’s interesting that the missing leg of this T-square is the Virgo area of our charts. We have just a few more months of the North Node traversing through the early degrees of this sign of simplicity, purification and service. This is an excellent time to check in on our overall organization, purity, health and how much we’re giving back with our work. This is how we can balance the other three areas mentioned above. Virgo is the reminder to value self-care by eating right, working efficiently, helping others, getting enough rest, and keeping our daily lives sweet and simple.

Full Moon in Gemini Ritual Suggestions:

Many of my clients ask for rituals to help them embody the Full Moon healing potential. For this lunation, I recommend a lot of free-form writing/journaling, breath work, mantra work (even if just positive affirmations or repetition of words that empower or uplift), and stretching out of the hands, arms, shoulders and wrists (Gemini-ruled part of the body). Meditation, long walks and movement in general to get out of your head is also favored now. Tulsi is an excellent herb to incorporate into your diet now to ease the mind. There are many excellent Tulsi teas.

FIRST QUARTER MOON IN PISCES HOROSCOPES

Horoscopes for the Week of December 5th-11th, 2016

 

The collective energy could be weighing a bit heavy and somber at the moment with the Sun applying to Saturn in Sagittarius over the next few days. The exact conjunction is on Saturday the 10th (Emily Dickinson’s birthday–pretty apropos).  Saturn prefers solitude and asceticism.  The Aquarius vibes, also traditionally ruled by Saturn are quite dominant at the moment with both Mars and as of Wednesday, Venus moving into Aquarius. The combination is rather big-picture, long-term and goal driven but with a very dense Pluto shadow creating a T-square to the current Uranus (Aries)-Jupiter (Libra) opposition.    We feel pulled between initiating the new, working on our relationships and tearing down and destroying old Patriarchal structures (Pluto in Capricorn) –and then there’s another part of us that just wants to hide under the covers and eat cookies until 2020 (missing T-square leg in Cancer).

I specialize in Saturn (literally “wrote the book on it”……. “Surviving Saturn’s Saturn”), so if you’re in the midst of your Saturn Return issues (28-30) or having some challenging Saturn transits (read: Sagittarius-Gemini-Pisces-Virgo heavy charts) feel free to contact me for some deep one-on-one work.  Work with Sherene

Aries:

Reality testing is so not your bag this week, Aries. It’s all about the great escape. The First Quarter Moon has you craving more sleep and soul time than usual, so prioritize self-care and long baths. Movies, music and anything from the sublime realm is also excellent now. Your social life takes a sweet turn after Wednesday. Look for kindred souls to collaborate with over the next few weeks. The Moon will light up your very own stars on Thursday and Friday, so mark those dates for your fiery finale. You’re totally in your “go get ‘em” element, Ram!

Taurus:

Friends rule your world this week, Taurus. Your social life proves to be incredibly inspiring, so don’t opt for the solo road. The more the merrier is most definitely your motto of the moment. After Wednesday, a restless and rule-breaking energy takes hold. You’ll be more in the mood to experiment than usual so take advantage of the opportunity to break out of your comfort zones. Career prospects are extra sweet over the next few weeks, so push those end of the year projects. You’ll be craving some time out to catch up on sleep and soul time on Thursday and Friday. The Moon will move into your stars just in time for the weekend. Enjoy a slow and sensual pace.
Gemini:

2016 might be on the verge of completion, but your career star is on the rise this week, Gemini. Work your professional vision under the powerful influence of the First Quarter Moon. You have all of the support and inspiration necessary to turn your imagination into your professional reality before the clock strikes 2017. You’ll have loads of collaborative support from friends, colleagues and peers on Thursday and Friday. The weekend is your cue to slow down and catch up on your beauty sleep. Next week is going to be all systems go-go-go, Gemini style! Slow down and rest up!

Cancer:

Your inner homebody is giving way to your inner jet setter this week, Cancer. Travel fever abounds compliments of the First Quarter Moon inspiring long-distance adventures and a strong desire to break free of your normal routine. This is the perfect week to kick back and reflect on all of the experiences and lessons of the past year. Go ahead and wax philosophical while the mood strikes. Career concerns take precedence starting on Thursday, but by the weekend you’ll be ready to play. Expect a super social close to the week. It may be nearly impossible to hide in your shell, but then again when the company is so good, who needs to?

Leo:

You are in dire need of private time this week, Leo. Even if you feel guilty because so many are trying to get their holiday time in with you, attend to number one. Use the first half of the week to get poetic and dive deep into your own soul needs. You’ll come out of your hiding space by Thursday, when wanderlust beckons. Trying to balance romance, work and adventure is never an easy task, but if anyone can find enough love to go around, it’s you. You’ll be feeling totally on top of the world by the weekend. Expect a rather full social calendar going into next week.

Virgo:

Relationships are your everything this week, Virgo. The only issue is figuring out where dreams end and reality begins. The hidden romantic in you is running the show this week, but your practical side won’t go down without a fight. Why would it be such a crime to give priority to your heart for a minute?. The second half of the week is all about feistiness and moving through massive fears and obstacles. You can plow right through the most stubborn of challenges with sheer determination and a rather matchless courage. When insecurities arise, you’ll be surprised by your ability to rise above and get back to your inner strength. You have both the brains and the courage!

Libra:

Let your imagination take you to amazing and gorgeous places this week, Libra. Once you have the vision of how strikingly beautiful you want things to be, all you need is to commit yourself fully to make it real. You can’t sit on the fence dreaming and wonder why it hasn’t happened yet. Nip those indecisive tendencies in the bud. Relationships will be your end all be all towards the end of the week. Don’t lose yourself in trying to mold yourself to the needs of the other. Asserting your own voice can only strengthen the trust and level of reciprocity. You can’t constantly accommodate without some backlash of feeling like the relationship is out of balance.

Scorpio:

Feel the love buzz this week, Scorpio. This could mean utter romance with another human or simply falling head over heels with life in general. Your creativity is also top of the charts. This is an excellent week for taking all of your projects to the next level as you’ll have loads of inspiration and can use the end of the year deadlines as serious motivation. In fact, work mode will kick in strongest after Thursday. You’re more in play mode at the start of the week, but your productivity will kick in like rapid fire by Thursday. The weekend is back to relationships and more romance.

Sagittarius:

Forget the ensuing holiday hustle, darling. What you need is some serious downtime. It’s rare for your inner fireball to give way to homebody instincts, but it does happen. Take advantage of this rare mode and catch up on everything having to do with your alter ego’s life as domestic goddess. Love and pleasure will be pulling you back out in the game after Thursday anyway. It’s a momentary but miraculous time of catching up on the basics like holiday decorating and laundry. The incredible part is that it provides a strange sense of bliss and spiritual satisfaction.

Capricorn:

You’re a communication machine this week, Capricorn. It will take a miracle to get you off the phone let alone finding ways to tear yourself away from the onslaught of texting and emails. Pace yourself and remember that you truly aren’t required to answer everybody and their cousin immediately. The sudden influx of conversations and correspondence all demand your undivided attention but then there’s the rest of your life. If you start to feel drained, give yourself requisite tech fasts. It will save your sanity and your eyesight. You’ll be craving family and time for lounging at home after Thursday. The weekend brings a sweet dose of love and creativity. Alls lovely that ends lovely.

Aquarius:

It’s time to get clear and grounded in the money department, Aquarius. Use this energy to focus and close the books on 2016. You can also harness some awesome new creative strategies for increasing your cash flow. Communication could take over and present way too many distractions after Thursday, so get your money matters settled early in the week. The weekend is your invitation to kick back and catch up on some long overdue lounging and extended time with your favorite books or flicks. You’ll be so ready to slow down and do a whole lotta nothing. Consider it your reset before the real holiday insanity kicks in full force.

Pisces:

This week is all about new beginnings, Pisces. Use the First Quarter Moon in Pisces now to build new dreams and wrap up old ones. Inspiration is in endless supply, and it’s like the stars are at your service for glamour galore. You won’t be in the mood for reality testing, but parties and socializing? Yes, please! Thursday and Friday are excellent for getting organized around money and financial planning for 2017. You’ll be thinking both creatively and strategically for amazing results. The weekend brings a surge of texts, emails and other people vying for air time with you. Too much time in electronic world leaves you depleted. Just say no and unplug!

 

Weekly Horoscopes for the Week of November 21, 2016

img_8051

Weekly Horoscopes November 21-27th, 2016

The Sun shifts into Sagittarius while Mercury and Saturn merge in this mutable fiery zone.   We’re doing our damnedest to break on through to the other side of whatever this is we’ve now found ourselves in. Is there a name for it? If there is, we’ll find one this week. We’ll wax philosophical. We’ll search for truth. We’ll look for the illumination and meaning in the absurdity. Conversations could be fraught with tensions, especially when opinions differ. Agree to disagree.

“The reason I talk to myself is because I’m the only one whose answers I accept.”
― George Carlin

 

Aries:

Get ready to expand your horizon this week, Aries. In fact, you’ll be doing everything in your power to break all the bounds, even if that means literally booking a long-distance adventure before the end of 2016. Your philosophical nature takes hold as well, thanks to the Sun’s shift into fellow fire sign, Sagittarius on Monday. Just watch the tendency to promise more than you can deliver. Others will be holding you to your word on Wednesday. This kicks off a new phase of lighting your fires of truth-seeking and inspiration over the next month. Self-expression rules your world during this week’s Last Quarter Moon highlighting your inner creative spark. Work this fabulous surge of self-confidence, darling!

Taurus:

Change is essential this week, Taurus. Ruts are depressing and stagnation is not good for your health. Once you come to peace with the freedom of letting go of that which is actually rather stagnant and expired in your life, you can fly again. Don’t let fear stand in the way of your bigger vision and dreams. This is the week to expand your horizons and embrace your heart’s bolder desires. This week’s Last Quarter Moon is reminding you to root down into your core confidence and shine like the superstar you were born to be!

Gemini:

This is the week for mastering the art of relationships, Gemini. As much as you adore getting lost in the confines of your own thoughts and can disappear from human relationships for days, this week won’t let you go very far. Your loved ones are basically in your face and demanding commitments. If you feel totally backed into a corner, be clear with your limits and know when and how to spread your wings and fly. Power issues come to the fore with lovers and friends later in the week.

Cancer:

Your focus shifts from love to work and daily duties this week, Cancer. The Sun is illuminating all of your projects, deadlines and wellness routines after Monday. If you’ve been slogging through your rituals without the fire you need to keep the creativity flowing, you’ll love this change in energy. Commitments are essential now to get the job done. Get crystal clear on what you want moving forward as 2017 is just around the corner. You’re in a big goals, big dreams, huge vision kind of vibe this week. You’re also totally craving expansion around the domestic front. A new home or home improvement project? Making more space? Yes, please. Relationship themes are also on the rise and you’re feeling rather do or die with current commitments.

Leo:

This week’s stars are anything but ordinary, Leo. Your fierce fiery mode is taking over and creativity is hitting a fever pitch now. You have loads to say and express and nothing and no one is about to hold you back. Your confidence is unshakeable now and you are more committed than ever to what you love. That level of dedication will take you far. The Last Quarter phase of the moon falls in your stars this week and celebrates all that you are in big, flashing lights. Spread the love and share your courageous heart. You have so much to give and it all comes back to you ten-fold.

Virgo:

Optimism is back after some intense vibes of uncertainty and chaos over the past few weeks. You’re coming out of the depths of the part of your mind that tends to over-think, worry and then worry some more. This new phase is all about travel and consciousness raising. You are ready to embrace the limitless opportunities that life has to offer, without questioning everything so much. Commitments are calling mid-week, so be sure you’re in it completely before signing on the dotted line. Money themes are potent and investments could feel overwhelming yet perfectly life-changing in the best of all possible ways.

Libra:

This week brings you face to face with some powerful truths, Libra. The question is whether you will speak out or keep your newfound clarity to yourself? If you fear you’ll rock the boat with loved ones, you might resist confrontational conversations. Then again, your innate need for justice and setting things right again could have the power to propel you to overcome your fear of discord. In any case, you will get mighty clear on what you will and will not tolerate going forward and this is a very good thing for everyone involved. No passive aggressive maneuvers are necessary or even desirable this week.

Scorpio:

Your creative fires are raging in the best of all possible ways this week, Scorpio. You’re also more grounded, determined and solid than you have felt in months. Use this power and momentum to create a groove that you can sustain and build upon for months to come. When your passion meets practicality anything is possible. Money issues are requiring you to get super headstrong and practical as well. Allow your resourceful tendencies to take over and remove any wasteful decadent habits that no longer serve you.

Sagittarius:

This is the week where you truly have to put your money where your mouth is, Sadge. Yup, it’s imperative to now live up to your own promises and commitments without compromise. The stars are testing you to the nth degree. For starters, you’ll have the Sun moving into your stars on Monday to officially kick off your birthday season. Party responsibly as you’ll feel the pressure of staying on top of mega responsibilities all week long. As your star continues to rise, so does the work level. You can handle it as long as you stay grounded and focused. Freedom comes with a steep price tag at the moment, darling.

Capricorn:

You so deserve a break this week, Capricorn. The need to rest, retreat and replenish is no longer a luxury but a necessity in order to avoid burnout. Don’t allow your usual guilt trip to prevent you from taking a proper pause from your non-stop schedule and workload. Sometimes you have to really check out long enough to see the the world won’t fall apart without you. Of course you are the most valuable asset, but others will cover when push comes to shove. You have to take care of number one now in order to preserve your overall wellness and creativity.

Aquarius:

Your social life is totally on fire this week, Aquarius. You live for mixing and mingling like it’s your job, but this could reach overkill if you don’t pace yourself. If you’ve been spreading yourself too thin, you’ll probably hit a wall by midweek when you’re forced to choose your commitments with more consideration for your long-term pace. You can’t be all things to all people, nor would you want to. That kind of aspiration is not only exhausting but leaves you hating humans and goes against your inherently people-adoring nature. Use this week’s stars to find the balance between self and others.

Pisces:

This is the week when you want to do, see and be it all, Pisces. You’ve got your eye on the sky and limits are not in your vocabulary. This kind of boundless approach to life and love is totally inspiring but could leave you drained and defeated when reality crashes the part midweek. Don’t wait for life to keep you in check. You can still soar without the crash landing. What’s needed is some forethought and just a little more planning (read: backup plan). Dream big but have a safety net for best results under the current stars. Sometimes too much spontaneity can be your downfall, darling.

Aries:

Career is your obsession at the start of the week, Aries. That said, too much work and no play, makes Aries a grumpy Ram. But alas, the stars are about to give way to one of your most social phases of the year. On Tuesday, Mars shifts into your friends zone and revs up your party calendar just in time for the holiday season. Finding solo time will be challenging. You’ll also be working your 5-10-20 year plan over the next few weeks. You have more ambition and mojo than you probably know what to do with these days (don’t take it out on the innocent, darling). The Moon will light up your stars in time for the weekend to put you in fierce “fire woman” mode on Friday. You’ll blaze in any setting you choose. Your magnetism is at an all-time high. Put the work down, and work it!

Taurus:

You’re breaking all of those rusty cages this week, Taurus. Ruts be damned! As much as you’re known to resist change, you’ll totally welcome the new under the current transformational stars. You’re also shifting into major career mode this week, Taurus. The mojo planet, Mars is pushing you to work harder and smarter as he powers up your professional zone starting on Tuesday. You’re a stubborn force to be reckoned with. When you have your mind set on something, you’re in it for the long haul and nothing will deter you. You’ll be in a total social mode by mid-week, so be sure to trade work for friend time. By the time the weekend rolls around, you’ll be craving to go solo once again. Catch up on your books and beauty sleep while the Moon is in your stars on Sunday (hint: you’re preparing for the Full Moon in Taurus next Monday!)

Gemini:

Wanderlust abounds this week, Gemini! Mars is getting ready to power up your long-distance adventure zone for the next several weeks. If you don’t have any fabulous getaways planned, this is the week when you’ll start plotting. You’re so torn between relationships and work that losing yourself in future itineraries is an excellent distraction. The Moon will move up to the top of your chart Tuesday-Thursday so use this time to get your professional status on point. Your social world takes precedence on Friday and Saturday. You’ll need Sunday to slow down, rest, eat good food and ground as you prepare for next week’s Full Moon.

Cancer:

Sweeping changes are in the air this week, Cancer. The future is calling and there is nowhere to run and hide (not even your shell). You are feeling the pressure to put your money on the long-term bets now. This requires some serious plotting, planning and strategy on your part. As much as you prefer to dwell in the past, you can feel that now is the time to power forward. Mars will be accelerating your desire to let go and experiment with the new after Tuesday when he surges in your change zone for the next several weeks. The Moon will move into your career zone on Thursday until Saturday, so if there are any projects you want to get on the map, go for it! Sunday is perfect for kicking back with friends and lingering over a dreamy meal.

Leo:

This is the week when relationships take center stage, perhaps to the exclusion of all else. The Moon lights up your partnership zone to set the tone for the week. On Tuesday, Mars surges in your opposite stars and creates an irresistible desire for as much dating, mating and relating as possible. It could quickly become an obsession if you don’t keep yourself busy with other distractions. By Thursday, wanderlust could help keep your mind out of the codependency gutter. You have too much pride to totally lose yourself in your desire for love, but that doesn’t mean it can’t take over too much brain space. Career matters will start to dominate the scene by the week’s end as you prepare for next week’s Full Moon lighting up the top of your chart and thus putting you in the spotlight. Go, Leo!

Virgo:

It’s to refine your daily rituals and routines, Virgo. You adore a well-curated schedule to begin with, but this week you are ready to put everything you’ve got into creating the dream itinerary for your days. Your focus is on serious self care. You tend to work yourself to the bone and neglect to fill up your own well, but all that is on the verge of a dramatic overhaul this week. You’ll have the support of Mars to put discipline where you need it most. Finding the balance between supreme success (which is never an issue) and taking amazing care of yourself is the magic formula.

Libra:

Your love life is about to peak this week, Libra. You’ll feel the fabulous new energy from the get-go as the Moon first lights up your romance zone followed by Mars on Tuesday. You’ll have ample amounts of energy to make your life as exciting as you want it. Let your heart guide you without exception. Work could feel demanding between Tuesday and Thursday, but don’t let that overshadow the sweet love buzz you’ve got going. The weekend just further amps up the relationship vibes, so even if you get slightly distracted, it won’t be for long.

Scorpio:

Your home is most definitely where your heart is this week, Scorpio. Heaven knows you’ve been spreading your energies way too thin over the last few weeks. Burnout was inevitable and now is the time for taking care of number one. Your ruling planet, Mars is getting ready to power up your home zone for the next several weeks, so if there are tasks and chores lying about that need your attention to turn your domicile into your dream sanctuary, this is the week. Romance arrives between Tuesday and Thursday when the Moon moves into your love zone. You’ll be back to work mode by Friday, so get any social butterfly vibes out of your system early in the week.

Sagittarius:

Get ready for communication central this week, Sadge. You could feel helplessly tethered to your gadgets even when your fingers are burning from too much texting. Schedule intermittent breaks to preserve your sanity and your eyesight. This is in fact just the beginning of a phase of overkill-communication that could go on for weeks unless you find a balance. Mars is powering up your talk, text, and thinking zone starting on Tuesday for the next several weeks. This is anything but Zen. Take as many walking or moving meditation breaks as possible. Also be sure to power off at least two hours before bed to help quell your nervous system. Your sleep cycles will thank you.

Capricorn:

The slow down you’ve been secretly dying for finally arrives this week, Capricorn. You might be sad to see the mojo planet, Mars leaving your stars this week (Tuesday to be exact), but he’ll be hustling for you in the money department for the next few weeks. Rather than just feeling internally driven from dusk ’til dawn, you’ll now feel like you can direct your energy towards maximizing your finances. You’ll have the perfect future-forward strategy to make some serious bank. Take care of any important correspondence while the Moon transits your communication zone between Tuesday and Thursday. The weekend is for lying low at home and catching up on all your favorite domestic duties that bring you back to life.

Aquarius:

This week screams your name in electric lights, Aquarius. For starters, the Moon lights up your stars from the get-go. Next, on Tuesday you’ve go the planet of turbo-force and drive (Mars) moving into your constellation to make things happen (and fast). You’ll have this energy surge for the next several weeks. The only caveat is to watch your temper as you’ll be feeling all kinds of fired up and without much patience. As long as you have the feeling that life is moving forward, all is well. You have zero tolerance for nay sayers and stagnation. Nothing is a match for your mega- determined mind.

Pisces:

You’re a wild card and a rule breaker all in one this week, Pisces. Go ahead and wave that freak flag sky high! You’re actually at your creative best when you don’t give a damn what anyone thinks of you.  The stars are all for shaking up the status quo now. Mars will power up your house of imagination starting this Tuesday to ignite something close to creative genius if you’re open, ready and willing—(and of course you are)! The Moon will move into your stars between Tuesday and Thursday to put you in perfect glamorous, Pisces form. Go with the flow and allow the magic to unfold spontaneously.
