Saturn, the planet of karmic responsibility has been in the sign of Sagittarius since December 2014. The cosmic cop of the zodiac will continue in the sign of the Archer until December 2017. Morals and ethics will be the theme throughout this period. Humans the world over will learn that using shortcuts or schemes to avoid consequences always backfire and that no one is above the law. Saturn in Sagittarius teaches us that moral and ethical standards of behavior will always be the safest way to success.

Happy birthday Taurus!! With the sun approaching a sextile to Neptune for the first few days in May you can expect a dose of inspiration. For those of you in the arts this could be the time you'll be able to manifest your artistic masterpiece in the medium of your choice. For you more practical bulls in the field of finance this is a good time to use your intuitive skills to make some cash.
Just goes to prove your name doesn't have to be Venus to get the benefits of a Venus transit.
Mars has been transiting Gemini since the 22nd of April. As you all know Mars activates, energizes, and even provokes. It will be interesting to see how the man in The White House who just happens to be a Gemini handles himself, especially around the third week of May. The image of blowing a gasket comes to mind. How presidential.

Okay, it's been a year now. Throughout the past twelve months I've given you, albeit sparsely, some interesting insights into each one of the twelve signs of the zodiac and what makes them tick. Blogging requires lots of writing, especially writing about things that will be interesting to whomever is reading it. I don't know if you readers know this but the blog police keep an eye out for neglected blogs and will threaten to take it down via needling email notifications. So in order to entertain and inform and to keep this blog from being shut down, I just came up with a little guessing game. This guessing game will consist of clues based on words that are related to the planetary combinations that were formed on the day of a my mystery guests' birth. The individual will be someone who has gained media attention so don't worry, you won't have to do a google search to discover who the person is. It's up to you to match these character traits with the individual that you feel best embodies them. Kinda like this guy and the other celebs shown here. Although they don't all share in the same aspects as my mystery guest below (at least I don't think they do). The one thing they all do have in common though is their magnificent egos. Pay attention to the hints. Good guessing!
assertive, forceful, strong, fearless
Mars conjunct ascendant - Flip Side
self-promoting, pugilistic, defensive, aggressive, competitive, angry, cruel, hyperactive.
Sun in Gemini - Positive

This applause is for you. Isn't amazing how astrology works??? Sad.

Speaking in evolutionary terms, the twelve signs of the zodiac represent the the 12 stages of consciousness. Pisces represents the final stage of evolutionary consciousness. Within the sign contains a consciousness of the totality of all the traits of the signs that have been experienced and come before. In its highest state of being it strives to remove itself from egocentric matters, meaning attachments to those things that do not assist in its soul's development. This is why Pisces ideally is the most spiritual sign of the zodiac.
Personally, I find this sign to be the kindest and one of the most misunderstood of the 12 signs. I feel water signs in general which are part of the water triad, better known as Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces probably relate to this personal observation of mine best because of their tendency to keep their feelings to themselves. Born with the gift of retreating rather than forcing it's agenda on others, this sign has the capacity to patiently wait on the sidelines for others less equipped and striving for attention to hang themselves. It is a sign of great compassion especially for those people less fortunate. They are often found in careers where they can help people unable to help themselves i.e., hospital workers, psychiatrists, psychologists and counselors. Ruled by the planet Neptune which bestows an affinity for music, art, meditation, spiritualism and occultism, this highly inspirational planet is striving to deliver us to higher realms, a real challenge for normal mortals who are constantly faced with a myriad of tempting choices. Of all the signs of the zodiac this is the most intuitive and psychic sign.
Even the most well balanced and grounded Pisces finds it hard to escape the temptations that Neptune brings. As I mentioned earlier the majority of Pisces people in the world will find their escape route through reading literature, films, cruises, music, viticulture, chemistry or even craft beer. All of these pursuits are healthy in themselves unless pleasurable pursuits become addictions. If psychological disorders go unchecked alcohol, drug, or other addictions can manifest. Look, you don't have to be a Pisces to want to find an escape route, but Pisces does it better than all the other 11 signs. Acting is another career that Pisces feel attracted to because they can escape into a role and become someone else. Of all the signs of the zodiac this is the most intuitive and psychic sign. Poetry and poets also fall into the realm of Neptune and Pisces, as poetry is the most aesthetic form of expressing feelings.
This is one of my favorite signs because I admire their ability to chase rainbows, believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy and their belief that behind every human being lies a kind and loving soul seeking to transcend the physical realm. Those of you born at the tail end of the sign will be happy to know that all those obstacles you have been dealing with will be over by the end of the year. Here's to sunny days ahead!!

The following words are just some of the words associated with the sign of Aquarius: freethinking, friendly, cooperator, philanthropist, humanitarian, idealist. progressive and reformer. On January 20, 2017 the Sun was officially in the sign of Aquarius. It was also the date that the new president of the United States was inaugurated. We can only hope that the positive expression of those words will somehow be absorbed into the consciousness of the newly elected president. This is all I will say on this subject.
Aquarius is the most tolerant sign of the zodiac. They are fascinated by and appreciate the differences in world surrounding them whether it be career choices, art, or sexual persuasion. In short, individuality in all its forms. In my experience I have found this sign to be exceptionally cooperative as long as the issue at hand is presented intelligently. For instance it should be no secret to anybody who has any relationship with this sign that they are very smart, in fact smarter than most of the other 11 signs of the zodiac. However, before we put this brilliant eccentric on a pedestal, patience which we all know is a virtue, appears to have escaped this sign, particularly when it comes to dealing with ordinary mortals. This is especially noticeable by their sudden display of irritation if they have to wait more than 2 seconds for anything like a cell phone pick-up, an answer to any question, or a late night pizza delivery. Uranus, Aquarius's ruling planet is the cause. I know this because I have, like so many other astrologers a close relationship to this unpredictable planet.
Maybe that's why I always need to know where the exit is while attending a lecture, wedding, movie, play, concert or friendly gathering. People bestowed with Uranian energy are notorious for getting bored. They always need an escape route. Aquarian's need for change is undiluted though compared to their astro-cousins (Moon in Aquarius, Uranus on Ascendant, Sun conjunct Uranus etc.) Sun sign Aquarian's, simply embody their coolness, need for distance, space, and experimentation. They can really let their freak flag fly, except of course if they have strong Saturn influences in their charts, then their conservative side can become extreme. Uranus rules extremes and nothing is more tight-assed than an Aquarian gone over to the right.
Whether conservative or liberal this sign is very friendly. They do friends really well. All of them enjoy hanging with their mates and co-workers and will know every one of them by name. Just don't try to engage them in a conversation about how you just had to put down your precious dog or cat that you've had since childhood or your recent painful breakup. This kind of talk makes their brain scramble for a good excuse to split. If you want to feel like your living alone marry an Aquarius.Their brilliance lies in social activities, humanitarian and philanthropic concerns, political movements, science and engineering. They are best at giving themselves up for causes that help the greater good because their ability to detach their emotions for the causes they espouse helps them achieve goals rather than drown in a pool of feelings which can render them ineffective.
If you want to stay in a relationship with this sign and need cuddle time, it will be like trying to make an apple into an orange. Accept them for the unique and original person they are and just keep inventing new and unexplored activities to enjoy together. It will keep him or her interested for a lifetime.

All you Caps probably feel like you've been serving time ever since Pluto entered Capricorn back in January 2008. Caps born after January 2nd should be able to breath a sigh of relief. About now you're able to count your losses and start all over again. Those of you born around the 3rd through the 9th should finally see a light at the end of the tunnel by December 2017.
Pluto will stay in the sign until November 2024 so those of you born after the 18th of January will have to learn that there are just some things you just can't control. Surrendering isn't always a bad thing, after all it can save your life.
Here are some signals that Pluto is close by: Your business hasn't made a profit for years but you keep kicking a dead horse. You and your spouse are living separate lives. Your boyfriend still hasn't put the ring on your finger and its been ten years. Your house is too big, too expensive, too run down. All of a sudden the face in the mirror looks exactly like your mother's and you keep googling plastic surgeons. Your kid's heads are full of lice, there are mice in the walls, fleas on your dog and your plumber is stalking you.
With all the above you're probably wondering how you'll get out alive. You will. Just when you think you can't take it anymore and decide to promise God and the universe you will do anything you're asked to be let off the hook Pluto will finally unhook you, but only when you really really mean it. Sure you'll feel exhausted, battered and bloodied and minus a few bucks but you'll be well on your way to someplace better than where you were.

It hasn't been an easy go for you guys lately. Ever since late December of 2014 things started to go downhill haven't they? Either you lost your job, had troublesome dealings with authority figures, health concerns, or a heap of responsibilities thrown at you. This may not be the kind of news you wanted to hear especially on your birthday, but downhill doesn't have to mean that its the end of the world Sagittarius! After all you're not considered the luckiest sign of the zodiac for nothing.
Normally, Sagittarians walk around with both feet planted in mid-air, which gives the sign a reputation for being a bit eccentric, but right now those feet are being forced to the sidewalk. Did you know that Saturn rules concrete? He also rules authority figures. When Mr.Saturn comes along it is best to think of him as the big boss who owns you, demanding the best of you for your own good. If you don't measure up, like slacking or shirking your duties, Saturn will let you know. You may be called in for a one-on-one with him or her, whatever the gender. If you have been guilty of doing work that is considered average instead of stellar, well then, that's the reason the boss called you in for a sit down. Since you normally have Jupiter on your side, the sit down might just be a warning. So if that's the case you had better pull up your bootstraps and roll up your sleeves and do whatever you can to make things right. Saturn is all about right. He always points out the wrongs.
So keep your nose to the grindstone and show the boss what you are really made of, otherwise don't be surprised when the next time you're invited into the boss's office you will be asked to hand in your ID badge.
Gemini, Virgo, Pisces and of course Sagittarius; especially if you are a Gemini rising.
"So where's the good stuff." You are probably asking right now. The good stuff will be easy to see after the transit passes. You'll be able to see your Saturn Transit Report card by reflecting on how you handled the tough stuff. Karma is a bitch and we can never escape it. No other sign like Sag can tap into the universe and get ideas bigger than Jupiter himself to use and make life bigger and better the way its supposed to be.
So stop your sniveling. The transit will be over soon and you can pass the baton over to Capricorn. That sign is well acquainted with Saturn and his bag of roadblocks. You could learn a thing or two from them. It will all be over by December 21, 2017 so just get on with it.
