So I watched the Elizabeth and Bernie Show last night. Man I love those two!
Elizabeth was born when Mercury was conjunct Mars. She's a lightening fast talker which gives her the ability to run rings around her opponents, making it impossible for them to catch up. In high school she would have easily been captain of the debate team. She easily goes into attack mode especially when it comes questioning banking regulators. That Moon in Taurus knows a thing or two about finance, making it almost impossible for those slippery finance giants to get away with pulling the proverbial wool over her super hero eyes. And please let me not forget to mention her Cancer sun sign. She sees herself as the defender and protector of her constituents, always prepared for the wiley ways of her opponents.
Bernie the Virgo will always see the details that nobody else notices. He never comes unprepared and like Elizabeth has the documentation to back his claims. Work and service is his whole life. Ask any Virgo. This sign almost never retires. Even when they do, they're doing other work that is usually in a service industry helping others. His Scorpio rising sign makes him relentless in his commitment to making the world a better place.
I'm looking forward to tomorrow night to see the other candidates. Like the rest of the sane world.

So you thought because Mercury was going direct on August seventh that all was hunky dory? Think again my little stargazer. Technically we won't be out of the woods until Mercury returns to the exact degree and minute that it was when it went retrograde. So for all you anal retentive types it would be prudent not to put your signature on any document until the the sixteenth of August. Although I would cut you some slack and say you'd be okay on the fifteenth. Take a gamble. Considering I was born on a Mercury retrograde and any major decision in my life had to be made on a retrograde I'm not the best astrologer to take advice from.
I would be able to give advice to any of you out there who were born with a Mars in Leo though. Pay attention to any project that you started back when Mars entered Leo on July 2nd of this year. By the time Mars enters the sign of Aquarius on March 31st in 2020 you will be able to determine whether what you started back in August was going to work out. Any sign of complications could be a signal that what you started months prior could be filled with a lot of bumps in the road.

March 21st was the first indication that you guys would have your work cut out for you especially when it came to fighting for career goals and reputation. Rocky road comes to mind and I don't mean the ice cream. Don't expect smooth sailing until April especially when it comes to financial rewards.
Forcing a relationship to work when it clearly is a power struggle might feel exciting to you challenge-loving Aries but the price to pay could have dire consequences in the end. Getting the advice of a professional could be a big help. Expect ultimatums that will have the potential to effect your romantic life as well as your career interests.
By April you will feel more secure and willing to come to terms with those ultimatums that you accepted and perceived to be in your best interest especially in the financial department. Expect April to bring opportunities for financial and career advancement. When the Sun enters Gemini you'll be able to convince anybody and everybody that you can succeed in any undertaking. Your popularity will be at an all time high until June when the Sun enters Cancer making the challenging aspects you experienced in March to remind you that more challenges lie in wait especially in areas of home and family including real estate interests.
In July when the Sun enters Leo, you can expect matters to focus on matters of the heart, children, vacations and just plain fun. This would be a great month to take some time off and enjoy life for a while until the Sun enters Virgo and your interests will focus on work and health concerns. You can expect to reap the financial benefits that an industrial Virgo Sun will provide. Your focus on work will make this month financially rewarding but take care to be more conservative rather than indulgent in foods that can affect your digestive system.
The Sun entering Libra will bring out the competitive side of of your nature again. Career goals again will be the focus. When the Sun enters Scorpio in November it will supply those of you who who are waiting that big check. Aries involved in litigation should be reaching the final stages of your case when the Sun enters Capricorn in December.

I don't have an exact time of birth for Jared Kushner but all I have to know right now is that he is a Capricorn and things have been getting pretty scary for him. He began to get an inkling that he was out of his element around January 2017. The feeling of being a powerful insider is now beginning to feel like a Greek tragedy. Pluto's influence is dark and heavy. When a transit of Pluto gets close to a personal point in a person's horoscope its not unusual for them to find themselves surrounded by dark forces. Literally and figuratively. Often it takes the form of unsavory characters with less than good intentions.
Pluto is always about money and life and death issues. There is little money, like Venus money, bigger money, like Jupiter money and then there is the big kahuna bizillionaire money. Its not unusual for that kind of money to, not always, but often, come from unscrupulous sources and if the source of that money is indeed less than squeaky clean you can bet it is attached to strings. Strings that can tie a person so tight it would be difficult to find a anything sharp enough to set him or herself free. Even if the money is squeaky clean, the reason it was given initially, often, was not. With Pluto there is always a price. He doesn't believe in something for nothing...ever. The moral of the story with Pluto is to keep away from easy ways to get out of financial trouble...because there is no easy way. There is never a free lunch.
Now all of this doesn't mean if you ordinary mortals get a Pluto transit you will find yourself around unsavory types, but it can mean that its time for you to let go of something that you value so much that you think you can't live without it. The more you hold on, the more difficult things become. Pluto comes around to let you know that its time to get rid of people, places or things that have outlived their usefulness. The tighter you hold on the worse it becomes. That's when people get into trouble. Just when you feel there is no light at the end of the tunnel and you finally surrender you will be able to build a new life.
So back to Jared. Obviously he is in deep doo-doo right now. He's in a lot of debt for lots and lots of money. His fear of losing everything might cause him to make wrong choices that could have terrible consequences. I would counsel him to not take shortcuts because there is never an easy way out with Pluto. He isn't called the God of the Underworld for nothing. Hopefully Jared will see the light at the end of the tunnel by 2019.

The path of the total solar eclipse in August will stretch across the US from coast to coast. It passes over Oregon in the west all the way across the country to South Carolina in the east. This not only rare astronomically, but also astrologically because as we know "as above so below."
The ancient sky watchers paid close attention to eclipses which they believed to signify imminent disasters affecting countries and kings. For those doubting Thomas's who think solar eclipses have no influence on earthlings they should keep in mind that eclipses have proven to have an impact on animals when their circadian rhythm is interrupted. There is a correlation between Earthquakes and eclipses. Check out Celeste Teal's article http://www.moonvalleyastrologer.com/decoding-earthquakes/
So what can we expect with this solar eclipse? Keep an eye open for new beginnings and opportunities not necessarily good or bad. This should be an exciting period that brings unexpected events for signs in the later degrees* of Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius and especially Leo’s. Eclipses force us to take actions that portend growth and bring us into new and improved directions. These signs will be made aware of matters formerly thought not pressing and that can no longer be ignored. The next 6 months will make these signs sit up and take notice.
Solar eclipses signal to us about matters that have major significance in our lives. Astrologers say that the affects of an eclipse can be felt anywhere from 3 to 6 months before and even a year after the eclipse. If you have any of these signs within 28° 58’ you should feeling the effects already. It is interesting to note that Donald Trump’s rising sign is 29◦ 58’ in the sign of Leo which means its influence will have a very personal effect on him. His presidency has certainly been fraught with trouble prior to being elected president and has continued ever since.

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!

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.
