Light A Candle Today!
In many different traditions lighting a candle is a sacred action. It expresses more than words can express. It has to do with gratefulness. From time immemorial, people have lit candles in sacred places. You may want to begin or end your day by the sacred ritual of lighting a candle on this gratefulness. Or you may want to light a birthday candle for a friend. One single guideline is all you need: Slow down and do it with full attention.

Llewellyn’s Spell A Day

Coin Spell
Spell Date: Monday, April 8, 2019

This is a simple prosperity charm to attract and maintain wealth.

You will need two coins, a green candle and holder, and some powdered cinnamon.

Arrange the items on your altar. Light the green candle and imagine yourself paying off debts, saving up for a vacation, or buying that special thing you really want. Feel the happiness and freedom you would experience if you had the money you need. Carefully drip green candle wax onto the coins, and while it is still melted, place a dash of cinnamon powder on top. Drip more wax on top of the cinnamon, then press the coins together like a sandwich, trapping the cinnamon-and your prosperity-attracting energy-inside.

Let the candle burn itself out safely. Keep this charm in your wallet or change purse to keep the cash flowing.

Cleanse Us with Rain
Spell Date: Tuesday, April 9, 2019

Blessed be the falling rain, which cleanses, renews, and makes us whole again.

On a morning after a rainfall, step outside. Feel the enchantment of the world washed anew.

Gently wipe the fresh morning rain from the leaves of a tree or the petals of a flower. Touch your forehead, your eyelids, your cheeks, your lips, and the back of your neck with the fresh rain. You may even wish to wipe your throat with the rain. As the water lingers on your skin, feel its refreshing coolness and lightness of being. Take the water energy into your being, just as the leaves take the moisture into the tree. Legends say touching your skin with water from a fresh rain, especially in the morning, keeps your skin healthy, young, and vibrant.

Merge with the power of water that falls from the sky in gentle drops.

Communicate with a Sylph
Spell Date: Wednesday, April 10, 2019

This spell will assist you in contacting a sylph: an air elemental. Typically, these beings provide clarity of mind, new perspectives, and a general feeling of mental renewal. Invoke them when you feel stuck or are in need of inspiration.

For this spell you will need some resin incense (I prefer black copal), a charcoal-safe incense burner, and some charcoal. Light the charcoal. Ground and center. Face the east, or the direction your tradition associates with the air element. Enter a trance and sprinkle some of the resin on the coal, watching the smoke rise into the air. Call to the sylphs-the conscious beings of the air-to appear in the smoke before you:

“Creatures of the very air,
Reveal here to me your form.”

Look into the smoke with the Witch’s eye: your inner sight. Allow the sylphs to reveal themselves to you. Once they have, you may commune with them as you wish.

A Morning Meditation
Spell Date: Thursday, April 11, 2019

April mornings are alive with signs that the earth is awakening from its winter rest. The birds are singing and buds are opening, and silvery dew drops spangle each blade of grass. Many occultists believe that morning dew has magical qualities that trigger psychic and meditative abilities.

On an April morning when you won’t be disturbed, go outside. Breathe deeply. Then moisten a finger with dew. Anoint the middle of your forehead with the dew. This will awaken the powers of your third eye. Sit still. Let any images come to you. You may have visions of future events. You might get a “feeling.” Or you may slip into a meditative state. Slowly return to your everyday frame of mind. Record your visions/feelings and see what happens. Do this meditation as often as you wish.

Cerealia Celebration Altar
Spell Date: Friday, April 12, 2019

Cerealia was an ancient Roman festival celebrated at this time of year in honor of the goddess Ceres. She is a goddess of many things, including agriculture, grains, and the harvest. Her domain is fertility, motherhood, and women. Crops are sacred to Ceres. She is a goddess who speaks to the everyday person.

Cerealia was an eight-day festival thought to have begun on or around April 12th. The following altar is inspired by this observance. It promises to enrich your fertility in whatever area you need it.

Ritual and Ceremony
Wearing a white robe or dress, begin setting up your altar at sunrise.
Gather some wheat sheaves and tie them with a simple hemp string.
Create a cornucopia ( horn of plenty) out of some fresh, local crops.
Set your wheat sheaves and cornucopia on a green cloth on your altar.
Set out and then light a circle of white candles in holders.

Altar
Reflect on your Cerealia altar at sundown. Bring it your wish for fertility, health, and good living. Be sure to extinguish the candles.

A Spell to Destroy Negative Thought Patterns
Spell Date: Saturday, April 13, 2019

Sometimes that voice in the back of your head isn’t a good thing. Negative thinking can defeat us before we even go to battle, and there is no time like the present to destroy the cycle of negative thoughts!

For this spell you will need to keep a journal with you and log each time you catch yourself spiraling into a negative thought. At the end of the day, light a black candle and place it between you and a mirror, then read each negative thought aloud. After reading each negative thought you must respond with the reason that thought is untrue or unrealistic and then banish it by saying:

“I send this thought into the flame.
No more of my life force it can claim!”

Repeat this once daily for a week and then again as necessary. Let the candle burn down completely and safely each time.

Full Moon in Libra on April 19, 2019
Living with Moon Magic
by Patty Shaw

Full Moon in Libra April 19 2019The Full Moon in Libra occurs on April 19th, and brings us some special energy and a unique opportunity. Here is what Storm has to say about this Full Moon in Libra.

The Full Moon cycles reflect the period of the month where the Moon begins to decrease in light.
We can use this energy to remove anything in our lives that is not working properly based on the sign that Moon is in. In the case of Libra, it is relationships. So, any relationship that has outlived its usefulness, whether it is a personal or business, now would be the time to end it or bring it to a good or suitable conclusion. This is a great time to cut karmic cords that may bind you to dysfunctional situations or people.

Candle Ritual for a graceful exit

This will work for any situation that involves people and you can adjust for the kind of situation with our handy list below. You will be setting up and altar or working on the one you already have. Make sure you have a glass of water, shot glass of alcohol, and fresh flowers while you are doing this spell.

For instruction on how to set up an altar see Coventry Magic by Jacki Smith or visit this website, https://happyblackwoman.com/how-to-create-a-personal-altar-in-your-home/

Now pick your products and day to do your ritual from this list based on Coventry Magic by Jacki Smith. Put the candle in its candle holder in the suggested location on your altar.

East for communication, legal magic; Energetic oil – Myrrh, candle – Scales of Justice Hoo Doo, Justice Tarot card, best day to start this spell is Thursday.

West for emotional work, love, clearing objects; Energetic oil – Lavender, Candle – Emotional Balance Blessed Herbal Candle, Love Affirmation candle, Lovers Tarot card, and best day to start this spell is Friday.

South for fame, luck success; Energetic oil – Date, Candle – Luck Affirmation candle, Success Affirmation candle, Wheel of Fortune Tarot card, best day to start this spell is Thursday.

North for money stability and self-esteem; Energetic oil – Neroli, Candle – Stability Blessed Herbal candle, Star Tarot card, best day to start this spell is Wednesday.

Remove all the packaging from the candle and anoint it with the Energetic oil. Place it in a candle holder and put the Tarot card under it. Light the candle and say a prayer, a blessing or a request for help with your situation and with all the people involved.

If the day to start the spell falls before the three days of the full moon, that’s ok. Keep the candle burning from the 19th to the 21st for at least an hour a day and you will reap the benefits of this Libra moon.

Heartwings Love Notes 875 Getting them eggzactly right

Heartwings says, Eggs are easy to cook yet often difficult to cook well.”

Easter brings thoughts of eggs, coloring them, cooking them, eating them. As a child I disliked eggs intensely. They were always served in an egg cup with the top removed. I didn’t care for the taste much. Still, whether I wanted to or not I had to eat them because I couldn’t leave the table until I did. For some reason the egg spoons were silver which quickly tarnished from the yolks of eggs, and this somehow made the experience even worse. It was many years before I was able to eat eggs with pleasure.

To prepare dishes with eggs requires careful timing. For garlic fried eggs with parsley—our breakfast favorite, slice garlic into butter, break eggs over it, cut parsley over them, wait until they are just set, then turn off the stove and turn the eggs over to finish cooking lightly. Making stuffed or deviled eggs is challenging because of having to peel the eggs without devastating the whites. I seldom try. Separating raw yolks from whites, is now simple since I learned the trick of holding the yolk in my hand as the white slips through my fingers.

I have fond memories of sharing a simple lunch of warm hard boiled eggs peeled and mashed with a little mayonnaise, some salt and maybe some chopped parsley with my best friend as our little ones played together. How tasty the eggs were with some saltine crackers and a cup of tea. In those days I dyed my eggs with pellets of color from the supermarket. Some years ago I tried dying them with onion skins. They turned lovely purple and red colors.

This is an ancient way to do them: Save up your papery onion skins. Tie them around your eggs with string and simmer the eggs for 20 minutes. Very beautiful and fun. To make a tasty egg salad, mash yolks and whites together, add mayonnaise to taste and some of your favorite mustard. Add ground dried garlic, chopped parsley and curry powder if desired. Serve with crackers, toast, bread or just lettuce and a fork. Eggs are nutritious and inexpensive. Good for any meal. Great for after Easter leftover eggs.

May your eggs turn out to be extra delicious whenever you make them.

Blessings and best regards, Tasha Halpert

PS Have you a favorite egg recipe to share with me? I’d love to see it. Do drop me a note. Your emails make my day.

April Showers
By Madisyn Taylor

As the rain comes down, we can visualize it cleansing our minds and hearts, washing away winter, preparing us to start anew.
We are not always glad to see rain make its appearance each spring, accompanied as it is by clouds and cancellations, muddy boots, and limited visibility. Yet, without it, summer’s lushness would be less deep and less vibrant, the earth more exposed and unprotected from the sun’s heat, and browns instead of greens would dominate the landscape. For anyone who has ever suffered through a drought, rain is always recognized for the blessing that it is, the forerunner of flowers and fruit.

Even though most of us admittedly prefer sunshine to rain, we can appreciate the rain as part of the intertwining cycle of opposites that makes our world go round–wet and dry, dark and light, cold and warm, each giving way to the other in equal measure. This dynamic of yin and yang governs all aspects of life, and rain and flowers are no exception. Their interdependence offers us another window into the inner workings of nature and life in general. In our personal lives, there is also a time for resting and a time for growth, a time to allow and receive, and a time to blossom forth with abandon in full color. As the rain comes down, we might surrender to its wisdom, visualizing it cleansing our minds and hearts, washing away the detritus of winter, preparing us to come clean into the second half of spring, ready to start anew.

As the days grow longer and the rain grows first warmer and then less frequent, the earth will begin drying off and the promised buds will burst in every imaginable color. Until then, the rainbow after the rainstorm serves to remind us of what’s coming with a display so otherworldly that we can’t help but love the showers almost as much as we love the flowers.

Moldavite And Aligning With The Divine

Properties: Moldavite is a great stone for bringing great change in short periods of time. This stone is used for accessing the higher self working as a catalyst for the inner evolving spirit. It is used to align yourself with the power of the divine. Its divining spiritual nature is believed to come from it extraterrestrial roots. Consider moldavite when you want to bring mental balance, introduce yourself to new experiences and opening your mind.

First use this stone over the Heart Chakra, as it will facilitate the pure intentions of the heart and heart center. Bring the stone up to the Brow or Third Eye Chakra when accessing your intuition, psychic insight and stimulation of the pineal gland as it powerfully expands psychic channeling. Finally, use this stone on the Crown Chakra for facilitating altered mind states such as deepening meditation, accessing dreams and assisting in hypnosis. This stone is useful for those who are clairsentience. This form of extra-sensory perception acquires psychic knowledge primarily by means of feeling or touch. Moldavite assists in telepathic access to spiritual laws. It allows for info from higher regions/places to help us and earth to be a healthier and more spiritual person/place.

This intense meteorite has been used in helping people incarnating from elsewhere, to be more comfortable here on earth. Note: Moldavite may make some too spacey; be sure to ground yourself after use with a crystal such as hematite. Works well with clear quartz to help understand the information you access from moldavite.

Folk Remedies: This stone has been used over the centuries for reducing asthma, clearing toxin sensitivity, coping with emotional intensity such as anger, grief and fear as well as helping with epilepsy. It, therefore, assists in bringing those who are emotionally blocked to look at feelings they may not be expressing.

Feng Shui: Moldavite is used primarily anywhere to help bring change and/or balance. Consider using this stone in the Center for balance, health and grounding.

Crystal Cleansing: This stone should be gently cleansed under luke warm water after excessive use. Crystals react and energize by the light of the moon. The fuller the moon the more energized your crystal becomes. I would recommend your cleansing to be on or near the full moon so that the light can absorb into your crystal. Moldavite can be placed in the sun for recharging of its energy. This stone should not be placed in salt water.

History: Moldavite was formed 15 million years ago during the impact of a giant meteorite in present-day Nördlinger Ries. This greenish to brown-green variety of tektite was created with the heat of impact. It is believed that the meteorite melted with the earth’s surface creating a combination of extraterrestrial matter with that of mother earth! Some splattering of rock was believed to melt by the impact with earth’s atmospheric surface temperature and cooled while they were actually airborne. This rare stone is found in the Czech Republic, Germany, Moldova and Bohemia. It was named by A. Dufrnoy. The total amount of Moldavite scattered around the world is estimated at 275 tons. There are now only four moldavite mines that are in full operation in the Czech Republic. It is predicted that in less than ten years from now commercial Moldavite mining will come to an end. After this time, there will be virtually no appreciable amount of gem-grade Moldavite left in the ground.

Mint for the Vanilla Mint Lip Balm

Mints make their first appearance in early Spring. And I love mint! In fact, one of my favorites is Mountain Mint. To explain, this mint is native to the Appalachian Mountains where I live. Further, it is tall and has a pronounced vanilla mint flavor that works great in this vanilla mint lip balm.

Choose whichever mint you enjoy and/or have on hand. And if you don’t have vanilla flavored mint just add 1 vanilla bean or a teaspoon of vanilla paste to the recipe to give your mint lip balm the vanilla flavor.

First Make A Vanilla Mint Oil

2-3 Tablespoons dried mint leaves
1 vanilla bean scraped out (or a 1 tsp of vanilla paste)
1/4 cup grapeseed oil
1 small jar

Place the mint in the jar along with the vanilla bean if desired. Add the oil. Cap well and shake. Leave this in the sun for a week or so, then strain and use in the vanilla mint lip balm recipe below.

Vanilla Mint Lip Balm Recipe
My lips are always begging for moisture. So I developed this simple vanilla mint lip balm recipe that tastes great and moisturizes every season of the year!

Prep Time
7 days

Cook Time
10 minutes

Total Time
7 days 10 minutes

Servings
20 .15 ounce lip balm tubes

Ingredients

2 Tablespoons Vanilla Mint oil (from above)
1 double boiler
2 Tablespoons beeswax (or carnauba wax)
2 Tablespoons shea butter (or roasted cocoa butter for a chocolate mint flavor)
20 lip balm tubes

Instructions

Melt all of these vanilla mint lip balm ingredients in the double boiler (or a bowl placed over some hot water).
Check the consistency by letting some harden on the spoon. If it’s too soft, add a bit more wax. If it’s too hard, add more butter or oil.
When you have it where you like it, pour into lip balm tubes or pots.

Notes

Wax can vary a lot in hardness, so this may take a little playing around. The great thing is that you can melt it many times and it won’t affect the mix. If you don’t want to make the infused oil, use plain grapeseed oil and add a few drops of Peppermint essential oil and vanilla absolute.

You can store the leftover vanilla mint oil in the freezer for later or just make a larger batch of vanilla mint lip balm to use it all. Or add some to some raw sugar to make a complementing DIY lip scrub!

This vanilla mint lip balm recipe shows you that lip balm doesn’t have to be complicated. You should try making some today!

As a form of potential energy that empowers us to generate change, money is neither good nor bad.

At its most basic, money is a tool that enables us to meet our individual needs. As a form of potential energy that empowers us to generate change, it is neither good nor bad. Yet many people react emotionally to issues concerning finances, unconsciously condemning currency itself, the manner in which money is spent, and people who live lives of financial abundance. Individuals who are rich in gifts such as high intelligence are acknowledged for their positive traits while those who have acquired material riches or aspire to become wealthy are frequently judged harshly. However, wealth is not a trait upon which judgment can be legitimately passed. It tells us nothing about how a person lives, what they believe in, whom they care for, or the scope of their values. Like any blessing, wealth is merely an instrument of purpose that can be used both constructively and destructively.

From an early age, people learn to court wealth while simultaneously associating money with greed, selfishness, and unethical behavior. Consequently, this idea becomes entrenched in their hearts as envy. To attain a balanced and rational comprehension of money, as well as a fairer perspective of wealth, we need to recognize that outward manifestations of wealth tell us little about the individuals enjoying those blessings. When we feel the finger of jealousy prompting us to draw unflattering conclusions about people whose lives seem more financially secure than our own, we should remind ourselves that there are many elements of their circumstances we cannot see. Their wealth may be the result of long hours of taxing labor, they may donate a large percentage of their resources to charitable causes, or their bounty may be an incidental aspect of a life spent doing what they love. Ultimately, we can heal our hurtful associations with money by turning a blind eye toward both wealth and poverty when interacting with others and instead focusing on the individual before us.

If you take a moment to consider your own feelings regarding money and wealth, you may discover that you equate financial prosperity with happiness, power, security, independence, or self-indulgence. Money itself, however, is none of these things. You can begin developing a healthier view of wealth by simply accepting that while some possess great wealth and others do not, we all have the potential to create lives of beauty, substance, and wisdom using the resources we have been granted.

Stephen Halpert – Fool’s Paradise

Todd Stanza took his seat in the classroom for the graduate seminar on artificial intelligence. Settling himself, he surveyed the room. Across from him at one of the oval tables feverishly typing on her laptop was an incredibly attractive young Indian woman.

Her long black hair shimmered. Her emerald eyes sparkled. He couldn’t pull his eyes away from her. Though he had no intention of engaging in a relationship until his doctoral work was completed nonetheless he felt instantly drawn to her.

The professor came in, and to the sound of polite clapping took up his station by the screen. It lit up and a series of diagrams and complex formulas appeared.

“What must be understood,” he began “is that without recent advances in miniaturized batteries, the work of Musk, Kurzweil, and other pioneers… artificial intelligence would be severely limited.”

Todd bristled. There he goes again trying to sell his pet concept of AI as something more than decorative robotics, he thought.

The professor cleared his throat. “And if I may say,” he smiled, “these advances lead us to restate the rhetorical question: how many miniature batteries fit on the head of a pin?”

Several chuckled politely.

“Of course the weak link is not programmable data but the ultimate longevity of batteries. A perfect battery enables the perfect life-like android to participate in our campus community.”

He looked toward Todd. “Would you agree Mr. Stanza?”

Todd was only half listening. His gaze had returned to the young woman studiously taking notes. Todd gulped. He knew not to get pushy about his belief that robots were robots and people were people. He cleared his throat, swallowed and said, “Within limits.”

The professor smiled. “Your skepticism is refreshing.”

Todd’s mind was still on his new crush. He hadn’t seen her at the usual campus haunts. He’d heard there were many new graduate students from India and Pakistan enrolled in the AI graduate program.

When the seminar concluded the young woman looked over at Todd and smiled. He stood, gathered his notes and approached her.

The professor walked over and introduced them. “Jasmine Kalsa, Todd Stanza.”

She nodded and smiled again.  Todd invited her to lunch. She accepted. They found a table in the graduate lounge. She smelled of peach blossoms. Over lunch Todd was not only impressed by her beauty but also by her comments concerning the seminar. She mentioned that she had recently graduated from MIT.

“But you understand what I mean about androids? Regardless how sophisticated their programming they’re still robots. They don’t have feelings. Basically they’re nothing more than machines.”

She touched his hand gently. “Please understand that with every advance androids gain more humanity.”

“No doubt,” he stammered. He took a breath: “May I see you again?”

“Of course,” she smiled. “I find your attention refreshing, genuinely touching.” She sipped her soup.

“You do?”

“Of course. One needn’t be human to appreciate your kind feelings.” She looked deeply into his eyes.

“Oh let’s not get started on that robot android quagmire,” he chuckled. “I don’t care how intelligent a device may be there are still limits. They have no limbic system.”

She touched his hand. “But doesn’t human psychology bring to the personality similar limits and discrepancies?” Then she lowered her voice. “Besides, another fifty, sixty years from now this conversation will be passé. Few humans will ever be able to tell the difference.” She finished her soup.

His head was spinning. He needed to change the subject.  Abruptly he said. “Let’s have dinner and go dancing this Saturday night.” What he didn’t say was despite her cockeyed theories he wanted to hold her, kiss her, lose himself totally in her.

She smiled and agreed. Then her tone of voice changed and turned serious when she asked. “Have you read any of the recent papers on robotic equality?”

He chuckled. “You mean those liberal essays championing a robotic  Bill of Rights for,” he searched for the exact word, “machines?”

She stirred her tea and smiled. “It has been suggested that later in this century greater human/android interaction will be commonplace. By that time equality must be considered.”

He couldn’t understand where she was going with this. “What far? We’re only talking about machines. Sophisticated, remarkably crafted scientific products, but none the less a machine can’t think beyond its input. If it’s not part of the programming…”

“And the human brain can?” Her eyes twinkled as she smiled. “I suppose close intimacy between a human and an android is not to your liking?”

He blushed and started to stammer. “You mean cohabitation? The way humans do? Isn’t that a little farfetched? In his mind he saw unattractive rubber dolls sold at sex shops and winced.

She looked so fetching, so desirable. “Does it have to be?” she asked.

Oh he wanted to kiss her but he knew once they did he’d never want it to stop. He tried better explaining himself. “Please don’t get me wrong. I’m all for cloning. I’m all for robotics, especially in medical research. None of that’s bothersome to me. But the replication of humans?”

She touched his hand sending chills throughout his body. “Human/android cohabitation? Is that too farfetched for you to consider?”

“Not if it were us.” He stammered hopeful he hadn’t spoken out of turn. She smiled and seemed appreciative of his compliment.

“Then we’ll still go dancing and have dinner this Saturday?” His words tumbled out. He feared he was babbling. He jotted down her address and they set a time.

Saturday night  Jasmine dressed carefully and then tied her hair back in a ponytail. She stood by her mirror and carefully lifted her earlobe. Behind it was a barely visible slot. She widened it and in the opening carefully inserted a tiny new battery. She undid her ponytail.  Her hair cascaded over her shoulders. She dabbed a little perfume behind her ears. Then she smiled into the mirror, took her jacket and went downstairs to wait for Todd.

Weekly Horoscopes beginning Sunday, 14 April 2019

If you`re born within cusp period (16 to 26 of any month); you`re advised to read horoscopes of both signs covered by that period. You`re in the border; you may have influences from houses within those signs.

Outlines are longer versions; consists of every possible detail of everyday and based on three parts of each sign: 1st, 2nd & 3rd Decan; that is, any of three divisions of 10° within a sign of the zodiac. Even if you know or don`t know your Decan; I recommend, please read all three Decan.

Aries
Personal theme: I am!!
Fire & cardinal sign: March 21 — April 19

Your horoscope for this week:

While this will be a tricky and challenging week, its twists and turns will suit your often-impatient nature, as a quick-thinking Aries. The nearly daily changes in circumstances, plus your own shifting priorities, force you to brainstorm with others. This will be interesting if frustrating, mostly because you`d rather make plans yourself, and move on to whatever is next. Still, teamwork is key.

Important e-mails and text messages need an instant response. Checking messages when you are lying in bed half asleep is not a good idea. You might forget about them by the morning. Don`t tell yourself you will respond later as you could be distracted. Send an immediate reply. You have the skills and knowledge to help move a group project forward. People look to you for leadership and because you have the upper hand, your decisions will not be questioned.

This should prove one amazing week given growing confidence in a plan that`s been incubating since late last year. True, administration issues will still require attention. It may be that estimated costs are a long way from reality. A review and perhaps yes, dividing certain tasks between people would make a difference to the budget. Mercury arrives in your sign midweek. From then, getting your message across should prove much easier. That said, beware that from Wednesday through to next weekend you could experience considerable resistance from those born under the Mutable signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces. Whilst you may think that you`ve been totally clear in recent weeks others may feel you`ve be completely opposite. It may be necessary before the weekend to go over notes taken at earlier meetings and agree a revised agenda for a meeting to be held early next week.

Taurus
Personal theme: I have!!
Earth & fixed sign: April 20 — May 20

Your horoscope for this week:

You`re facing a range of obstacles. While others are eager to finalise arrangements, you`re urged to focus on what you can learn. This enables you to turn even completely unexpected events to your advantage. Even more important, it`s preparing you for the life-changing encounter, on the 22nd, between the Sun and Uranus, planet of innovation, in Taurus. What arises will transform your thinking, possibly overnight.

You`re growing irritated with a contentious situation. Someone is making mountains out of molehills. Be patient. You will gain more respect from others by being firm but polite. So, stay calm, even if you just want this to see an end to this. Expect to feel a surge of enthusiasm about some social plans a friend or neighbour is suggesting. Having something special to look forward to is just what you need to feel happy and excited..

If it feels as though a new you are emerging, you`re probably right. You may recall that Uranus has recently entered your sign. This is a fresh vibration and will take some time to get used to. However, what should be clear at the start of this week, is that there is a rising creative urgency emerging that simply can`t be ignored. Indeed, it`s quite possible that some of your ideas are futuristic – and much needed. Of course, this could work on many different levels: from change in decor to being captivated by new technology. By the time that the Sun reaches your sign next weekend, it should be clear to all that you`re set on a new path, that your entrepreneurial skills are very much to the fore, and that they would do well to follow you.

Gemini
Personal theme: I think!!
Air sign: May 21 — June 20

Your horoscope for this week:

Obviously, you`d rather make lasting decisions regarding several unsettled situations; but with both the actual circumstances and your personal requirements changing, that`s unrealistic. Actually, things are getting more interesting by the day. Your only problem? Those who`re unenthusiastic about anything new. Forget trying to win them over. Instead, focus on organising your own life. Once that`s settled, others will be in a more flexible mood.

Meetings and arrangements to do with a group project have tended to go much as you had expected. This is a great time to put the finishing touches to plans in readiness for the times to come. Expect a lot of energy to be taken up with joint activities. The team needs you and respects your versatility. It might benefit your health to take up a new sport or outdoor activity. This need not be anything strenuous, but the regular exercise will do you good.

By the middle of what should be a very busy week, your ruling planet, Mercury, moves from the apex of your solar chart into an area associated with groups, associations and general networking. You might then consider as of Monday, organising meetings and special events for the second half of the week. It may be that for some time now, you`ve needed to feel captivated and your talents put to better use. What should now be clear is that after weeks when you`ve felt messed around (yet might even have been accused of that yourself), that others are keen to move in new direction and want you to join them. Indeed, by next weekend you could be invited to be part of their team. The fact that this team has a long-term game plan (possibly as much a 7 to 8 years) in mind, might be just the kind of long-term vision you appreciate.

Cancer
Personal theme: I feel!!
Water & cardinal sign: June 21 — July 22

Your horoscope for this week:

Yes, decisions are pressing. However, they aren`t as urgent as you think. The trick is to discuss the actual situation and your options, especially with those who`re creative thinkers. They`ll help shift your focus to gathering facts. With current swift pace, this isn`t just wise, it`s vital. That way, when you do finalise plans, possibly not for several weeks, you`ll be sure they`re wise ones.

You would think doing something kind on behalf of a stressed relative would help relax them but nothing you say or do seems to please them. A small disagreement could build up out of all proportion. You might decide you both need a complete change of scenery and the sooner, the better. A colleague will insist their way is the right way, but you can see a better alternative. It will be up to you to show that there are more ways than one to skin a cat.

Your career could go off in wildly different direction midweek. True, it may be that you have short-term plans that need to be negotiated before you`re able to take your place in a new arena. It is likely however that from midweek it will be apparent that a new career door has opened and that others are waiting and ready for you to join them. Designs will likely have your full attention. By the time Mercury moves from another of the Water signs to the apex of your solar chart on Wednesday, this would seem to be less of a consideration. Indeed, at that point, full focus may be on a support system – both domestic and at work – ensuring that its in good working order ready for the challenges to be faced as of Monday 22nd. In many ways, this week should be viewed as preparation time. Note that Friday`s Full Moon accents the very backbone of your solar chart and that yes, you could be exceptionally excited but also highly emotional.

Leo
Personal theme: I will!!
Fire & fixed sign: July 23 — August 22

Your horoscope for this week:

While certain ideas or offers are thrilling, as many are puzzling. That`s no surprise, since with the foundation on which these are based shifting, the path ahead is unclear. Acknowledge that and instead of struggling to organise plans, you`ll take a break. You`ll go somewhere new, make new friends. That, in turn, will broaden your perspective now, so when decision time comes, you`ll know exactly what`s best.

Burying your head in the sand won`t solve anything. Problems you are faced with will need your immediate attention. What you may not have realised is some hurdles are directing you to do some further research and this will turn out to be a blessing in disguise. This may not be the easiest of times for you but some luck that comes your way later in the week will cheer you immensely. Companionship will brighten your evenings.

Obviously, the Full Moon at the end of this week affects all signs. Leos could be heightened state of anxiety about a contract. It may be that this needs to be signed quickly or broken as fast. Either way, words seem to have an important role to play. Words are the province of the little planet Mercury which changes signs midweek. Moving forward at speed should be easier after then. Yet it may be that the other side wants to play for time. It might then be the following Monday before settlement is agreed. With the Sun aligning with Uranus at the apex of your solar chart for the very first time in many decades, it might help to imagine an approaching windstorm. Battening down the hatches and being prepared for all eventualities would be wise. True, this is the case all the time. What is different presently, is the fact that after weeks of prevaricating, others seem now ready to make deals.

Virgo
Personal theme: I analyse!!
Earth sign: August 23 — September 22

Your horoscope for this week:

Sometimes setbacks are nothing more than annoying obstacles. However, those you`re currently facing are encouraging you to analyse situations as challenging as they are persistent. Once you begin, you`ll realise certain individuals are organising these for their benefit, whatever their impact on others. Get together with those who`re also inconvenienced by their manoeuvres, and you can force those troublemakers to straighten things out.

If there has been some conflict between your personal and professional lives, now is the time to sort it out. You are ready to put some healthy boundaries in place. You like to get results and keeping both feet planted firmly on the ground will make you even more productive. There is no room for complacency when dealing with domestic finances and extravagance should be avoided. Your family also need to be budget conscious.

You might recall that your ruling planet Mercury, together with Venus, is moving through your opposite sign presently. That situation will change midweek. Before it does, it might seem that others are being elusive and evasive. Getting clear answers to questions might not be easy. After Mercury changes signs on Wednesday, there should be greater clarity. Then, in the 48 hours leading into Friday`s Full Moon, it should be clear to others what the cost of their prevarication has been. You could waste time saying `I told you so` or you could do what`s been necessary now for ages: which is to make sure that everyone is clear as to the full costs in terms of time and money of going down certain routes.

Libra
Personal theme: I balance!!
Air & cardinal sign: September 23 — October 22

Your horoscope for this week:

Approach this week as if you were assembling puzzle pieces, and instead of worrying when things don`t fit, you`ll be patient. Also, because the Libra Full Moon on Friday the 19th brings both tricky situations and feelings to a head, you`ll realise the importance of taking it slowly. Focus on each day`s insights, and you`ll be increasingly confident things will come together, if at the last minute.

You are willing to work hard to get to the top and you have some ambitious plans for the months ahead. There will be challenges ahead and the setbacks you encounter now will not discourage you for very long. Intuitively, you know you are on the path to success. Luck is flowing your way, but you need to be cautious and careful. Soon you will feel ready to go public with an idea. It is time to reveal plans you have been making in private.

The Full Moon on Friday (19th) in your sign will most likely mark a critical moment. Expect change to be thrust upon you. If you haven`t taken control of the career reins, you will now need to do so. There is little point in clinging onto the past. Uranus has now changed signs. A new direction is needed. This could actually be fun. True, given the peace-lover that you can be, and probably resisting much change before Wednesday you might still be seeking ways to appease others. That`s unlikely to be achieved. Indeed, by Friday you will need to take ownership of developments and over the weekend of 20th/21st, consider which changes are long overdue and what could yet be implemented – and please you!

Scorpio & Ophiuchus
Personal theme: I desire!!
Water & fixed signs: October 23 — November 21

Your horoscope for this week:

Often dealing with setbacks requires nothing more than patience. Yet those you`ve faced recently, and will this week all involve matters you`ve been avoiding. This was both because you`ve been reluctant about revealing facts but, also, are unsure how to handle them. While, over the coming days, you`ll have no choice but to discuss these openly, the response will be unexpectedly understanding and supportive.

If you`re planning a trip with a favourite companion or hoping to enjoy some leisure activities, expect to have a wonderful time. The success of outside activities will make you feel like you`re on top of the world. Look after your health by attending only to what is necessary. Leave unimportant tasks for another time. Embracing your freedom and indulging your sensual side are your first priorities. Pamper yourself as the week ends..

Though fast paced developments are more likely at the beginning of next week, excitement should arrive before this Friday`s Full Moon. Until Wednesday, you may be playing with ideas. Do that: this would be an excellent exercise. Thinking of ways in which you could develop existing talents, and possibly even revive those that have been buried since childhood would make good use of the time. True, with Mars moving through Gemini until the middle of May, you might also need to give attention to health issues; either your own or that of someone close. Yet likely prompted by someone born under one of the Fire signs of Aries, Leo or Sagittarius you could yet see an opportunity waiting to be seized. Fact is that a gap may be opening, and you could be best placed to fill it.

Sagittarius
Personal theme: I see!!
Fire sign: November 22 — December 21

Your horoscope for this week:

Being told you`re in for a week of unexpected events and uncertainties may not sound exciting; but you`ll soon realise developments are intriguing, yet each is balanced by a challenge. This means instead of rushing on to whatever is next, you`ll be forced to check out practical matters or options you`d otherwise have ignored. While initially somewhat tedious, gradually things come together, often almost magically.

A get together with some old friends is something you are looking forward to. The stage is being set for an entertaining gathering. You have everything perfectly planned but there are some surprises in store. The appearance of someone you never expected to see again will put a smile on your face. A major part of the week will be spent with a group of friends or colleagues. One of them will have information which could come in useful.

Before Friday`s Full Moon, Mercury will have arrived in another of the Fire signs, Aries, and your need to `play` more will surely surface. Increased involvement with a group or association seems highly likely. Indeed, it may be that they are reliant on your recollection of how things have worked in the past. It`s not that you need to wear a historian`s hat, but that your knowledge of the facts will prove invaluable. Note that Mars is now travelling through your opposite sign and doesn`t leave there until mid-May. In these coming weeks anticipate being challenged. Others want to know your ideas and plans. Though these may as yet be uninformed and perhaps yes, there are health matters requiring attention and which could distract you from career plans, note that others likely see an exciting way forward and want you there with them to make the most of fresh opportunities.

Capricorn
Personal theme: I use!!
Earth & cardinal sign: December 22 — January 19

Your horoscope for this week:

You begin the week infuriated by impossible situations or pointlessly stubborn individuals. However, within days you recognise how each, in some way, has brought you a valuable lesson. As a result, you start to rethink plans, short term and more far reaching, all of which you regard as sacred. Once, perhaps, that was wise; but times have changed and so, too, must your attitude about these.

You have nothing to lose from taking over a failing project. If you stop for a moment or two and take another look at the situation, you might see where things are going wrong. Other people have been fumbling over a matter you are quickly able to sort out. Be positive and stay hopeful for this is a time when positive thinking and decisive action pay off. Whatever your plans, put your best foot forward. Whatever challenge you take on; you will be amazed by your progress.

There is little doubt that with Mars journeying through the working area of your solar chart, that your plate will be full. This situation is unlikely to abate until the middle of next month. Around Friday`s Full Moon you could also either experience panic or witness chaos in those around you. Holding steady will likely not be easy. Do bear in mind that Uranus, the planet that only changes signs roughly every seven years, has only recently arrived in another of the Earth signs. Everyone is getting used to a new vibration. One of the great gifts of Capricorn, is the ability to appear cool, calm and collected. Manifesting that exterior on the interior may be challenging of course! Note though, that it should soon be clear that you`re very much needed that your efforts are hugely appreciated.

Aquarius
Personal theme: I know!!
Air & fixed sign: January 20 — February 18

Your horoscope for this week:

Dramatic changes in others` lives thrill them; and, mostly you`re pleased, especially for those who`ve worked hard to achieve certain goals. Yet a few insist you get involved, and won`t acknowledge your lack of interest. Take a tough line. This isn`t easy but is essential. What you learn in the process will be helpful now, and of huge value for the rest of your life.

Are you looking for a job? You could prosper through your social connections. A well-connected friend will arrange an interview for you. You have flair and versatility and can sound knowledgeable about many things even if you don`t feel very confident. An intelligent observation will bring you huge rewards. If it seems as if you haven`t had much luck lately, you`re being reminded that there`s usually a silver lining to every cloud.

Anticipate a week of fast-moving twists and turns; and yes, this could prove expensive. It would be helpful if by Friday`s Full Moon, if you had at least a sketchy idea of exactly where things stand. Fact is that early next week the Sun and Uranus begin a cycle with which you will be unfamiliar. This one is sure to rock foundations. Having a clear idea of your present position ahead of those developments would surely be helpful. There is the very real possibility of you feeling `torn in two`. Essentially resistant to change, and anxious to hold on to what has been important, you might not be willing to hear plans and solutions offered by others. This though, could be the very moment to listen to these carefully. At least one appears to have excellent mileage but yes, could include travel.

Pisces
Personal theme: I believe!!
Water sign: February 19 — March 20

Your horoscope for this week:

As much as you dislike the idea of disappointing others, you really must put you, and your interests, ahead of the demands of certain selfish individuals; and don`t try to explain, it will only lead to yet more pointless discussions. Most of all, view these decisive if challenging steps as an investment on the present and a happier future, something that will be clearer day by day.

Some unusual events will keep you alert and on your toes. If any kind of daily routine has been on the dull side, be prepared for this to change now. Planning a trip with a fun-loving friend will make your eyes sparkle with excitement. An older colleague will offer you some advice. Although you respect this and will listen to, and appreciate what they say, you will be making a choice based on your own experience and feelings.

Jupiter, one of your ruling planets, has now stationed at the very apex of your solar chart. View this as one of those moments where you `see over the parapet`. Fresh opportunities – at least until Wednesday – should give you much to think about. True, in order to realise any of these, practical matters need to be addressed. It`s probable that domestic arrangements will be affected by developments in the environment around you. In short, you are likely to be pulled this way and that. Expenses might even be high from Wednesday and through to the weekend. Yet it`s also possible around Friday`s Full Moon, that you will be asked to take custody of an item that once held fond memories for someone. The fact that this is something that you can now put to good practical use is almost beside the point. It appears that you`ve attracted precisely what you need and at the precise moment it is needed.
