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.

PAGE OF SWORDS REVERSED

The card drawn for this week is the Nine of Cups. The Nine of Cups is one of the most positive cards in the deck. It’s often called the wish card and is a sign of good things to come. Take some time this week to look around and feel your heart overflowing with love and appreciation for all that you have created in your life.

Llewellyn’s Spell a Day

Promoting Yourself
April 05, 2020 by Charlynn Walls

As individuals, we’re always looking for ways to better our lives. One way we can do that is by working hard and excelling at our chosen path. However, we can sometimes use a little boost to help us out.

Sunday is a good time to harness the energy for a spell to increase your chances of landing a promotion at work. Take your watch, jewelry, or stone (citrine or sunstone) and place it in a bowl during the day to charge in the sun. Before removing it from the bowl, say:

This item will help me in the long
run, with the energy from the sun.

Wear or carry the item with you to work as you continue to put yourself in a position for a promotion.

Four Flames Spell
April 04, 2020 by Laura Tempest Zakroff

Falling during the time of Aries, this spell calls upon the balancing power of the number four to achieve a solid result.

Gather these items:
* 4 tealight candles
* A small square mirror big enough to rest the candles on

Lay the mirror facing upward on a stable surface and turn it so it makes a diamond shape in front of you. Place a candle at each corner (E, S, W, N), and light each in turn while saying the corresponding line:

Flame of the east, come light the feast.
Flame of the south, be gentle of mouth.
Flame of the west, you know my quest.
Flame of the north, come bring it forth.

Once all are lit, look at the reflection of the flames, with your goal in mind, and say:

Four flames combined,
the power is mine.

Allow the candles to burn out safely, then respectfully dispose of them and place the mirror on or near your altar.

Three Cauldron Love Spell
April 03, 2020 by Michael Furie

The body has different centers of power. The three most powerful are sometimes envisioned as cauldrons. The cauldron system is Celtic (from the text called the Cauldron of Poesy) and is akin to the chakra model though fewer in number. The three cauldrons—the cauldron of incubation (in the belly), the cauldron of motion (in the heart), and the cauldron of wisdom (in the skull)—support vitality, emotions, and wisdom, respectively.

To begin, meditate, visualizing the cauldrons in your body glowing with red (belly), blue-green (heart), and gold (head) light. Turn your focus to your vision of an ideal mate. Send light from your cauldrons to connect to theirs, creating a bond as you say:

Light streams forth from cauldrons
filled, with love and magic to merge
our fates; through thought, emotion,
and power of will, my goal to join with
ideal mate; for highest good, harming
none, I declare this spell is done.

Pentacks of Prosperity
April 02, 2020 by Cerridwen Iris Shea

The US Congress passed the Coinage Act on this day in 1792 to regulate coin amounts and usages (which at the time included coins called eagles and half eagles). Coins are associated with pentacles, so this is a great day to use them to grow your prosperity.

Gather these supplies:
* A small green or gold bag
* 1 of each of the following: a penny, nickel, dime, quarter, fifty-cent piece, and dollar coin
* 1 whole nutmeg

Bless the supplies in the name of the prosperity goddess of your choice, such as Habondia, Rosmerta, Fortuna, etc.

As you drop each coin in the bag, from the lowest to the highest denomination, say the following:

From penny to dollar,
My prosperity flowers.

Drop in the nutmeg last. Carry this with you until your prosperity manifests.

Beginner’s Luck
April 01, 2020 by Melissa Tipton

In the tarot, the Fool embodies the energy of traipsing off into the unknown with all the courage and, well, foolishness that this can entail! Whenever we embark on something new, we’re channeling a little—or a lot—of the Fool, and this is vital energy, for without it we’d never take the risks that allow us to expand and evolve.

Use this spell to call on the beneficial aspects of the Fool before starting something new. Say:

As I embark on this new path,
My senses keen, I need no map.
My higher self will guide me true,
And the Fool brings luck to all I do.

As you continue on this path, be mindful of times when your ego wants to micromanage things, and channel a little dose of Fool energy to break through fear and analysis paralysis, bringing you back into a natural sense of flow and intuitive awareness.

Lucky Steps
March 31, 2020 by Kate Freuler

Want luck to follow you ev erywhere you go? Make the insoles of your shoes into potent luck-attracting amulets that no one will know about but you.

You can purchase inexpensive shoe insoles, usually meant for deodorizing footwear, in most department stores.

Using a green marker, draw a picture of a four-leaf clover on the insole. It’s best to draw this on the side that will be against the sole of the shoe and not your foot in order to keep green marker from bleeding onto your socks. Add a drop of peppermint oil to the clover and imagine yourself surrounded by a lucky gold or green glow.

Place these in your shoes and go about your business knowing that lucky energy is right on your heels.

National Doctor’s Day
March 30, 2020 by Tess Whitehurst

Regardless of how well we take care of our own health, almost all of us find ourselves needing to visit a doctor from time to time. Honoring doctors and thinking positive thoughts about them helps ensure that we’ll always find a good doctor when we need one and that our doctors will always treat us with a great deal of fairness, attention, and respect.

Today, safely light a white candle and invoke Archangel Raphael, the divine healer angel. Take a moment to give thanks for all the wise, knowledgeable, and compassionate doctors of the world. Ask Raphael to bless them and infuse them with divine knowledge and the divine power to heal. Imagine them being filled and surrounded with white light. If you’d like, finish by donating any amount of your choice to the Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, or another charity that offers professional medical care to those in need.

Heartwings Love Notes 925: Lives On Hold

Heartwings says, “Change is inevitable and can be difficult to deal with.”

Right now I cannot tell what will happen next, because my life, like those of most, has changed radically. Dealing with change can be difficult. It is made worse when there is no way to tell what that change will bring. There are some things we know for sure: Sooner or later what goes up must come down. Equally true is that what is down will eventually rise up, possibly in a new form. That does not, however, tell us very much; we have no way of knowing what form the changes will ultimately take. What works for me as much as I can do it, is to focus on the present.

We can live only in the present, and while it may be useful to speculate for planning purposes, we really cannot count on anything beyond the present being true or real. Sometimes we avoid the resent moment because we do not like the reality we are living in. These days there is little to each day that is as it has been for most if not all of our lives. I lived through World War II, and for my parents that must have been a big change. I was too young to understand the difference.

Food shortages were a normal part of life. I even have a ration book from then, with some stamps still in it. What I remember is the white stuff with a yellow capsule in the middle that became “butter.” My mother would massage the bag and rub the yellow stuff until color was distributed throughout the bag. it resembled butter, though it tasted different. We were fortunate that my family raised chickens, so we always had plenty of eggs but among other things sugar was scarce, and I’ve noticed some of the ration stamps are for shoes.

When they are small children live mostly in the present moment. Their world revolves around themselves and what they know to be true for them. Before TV news, their world was small and most often safe. In those days, if it wasn’t in their immediate vicinity children were usually insulated from violence and destruction. It must not be easy for them today. We all do the best we can to reassure adults and children who are frightened by the unknown factors. What I tell myself and others is that in this present moment I and those I love are safe, and for that I am very grateful.

May your present moment be safe and may you be secure within it.

Blessings and best regards, Tasha Halpert

When Our World Falls Apart
by Madisyn Taylor

When external factors shift, we have an opportunity to rediscover our core, the only truly safe place to call home.

There are times when our whole world seems to be falling apart around us, and we are not sure what to hold onto anymore. Sometimes our relationships crumble and sometimes it’s our physical environment. At other times, we can’t put our finger on it, but we feel as if all the walls have fallen down around us and we are standing with nothing to lean on, exposed and vulnerable. These are the times in our lives when we are given an opportunity to see where we have established our sense of identity, safety, and well-being. And while it is perfectly natural and part of our process to locate our sense of self in externals, any time those external factors shift, we have an opportunity to rediscover and move closer to our core, which is the only truly safe place to call home.

The core of our being is not affected by the shifting winds of circumstance or subject to the cycles of change that govern physical reality. It is as steady and consistent as the sun, which is why the great mystics and mystical poets often reference the sun in their odes to the self. Like the sun, there are times when our core seems to be inaccessible to us, but this is just a misperception. We know that when the sun goes behind a cloud or sets for the night, it has not disappeared but is simply temporarily out of sight. In the same way, we can trust that our inner core is always shining brightly, even when we cannot quite see it.

We can cling to this core when things around us are falling apart, knowing that an inexhaustible light shines from within ourselves. Times of external darkness can be a great gift in that they provide an opportunity to remember this inner light that shines regardless of the circumstances of our lives. When our external lives begin to come back together, we are able to lean a bit more lightly on the structures we used to call home, knowing more clearly than ever that our true home is that bright sun shining in our core.

Visiting Sacred Sites
by Madisyn Taylor

Visiting a sacred site can be a useful tool to open something within you that has remained inaccessible.

From time immemorial, the hands of men and women have built sites guided by both the earth’s life force and benevolent beings of light. It is because of this guidance that the sites we deem sacred have long served as repositories of wisdom, energy, and illumination that can be accessed by all. The needs that inspire seekers to converge upon sites known to be sacred vary by individual. Some crave spiritual fulfillment above all else, while others hope to draw upon a site’s energy for the purpose of enlightenment, healing, or deep meditation, awareness and knowledge of information long gone.

Sacred sites can appear insignificant to those who close themselves off from the notion of a living earth. But sites can provide us with a link to a unified consciousness that involves the living and the dead, infinite cultures, the physical plane, and the spiritual world. When we look beyond well-known sites like Stonehenge, we discover energetically active sites such as the Iron Age fogou caves of Cornwall, England, or the pyramids of Meroe in the Sudan. Similarly, it is easy to imagine that hallowed places exist only in remote or exotic locales. Yet many of the most richly vital sites are easily accessible, and visiting these lesser-known sites can be a profoundly moving experience. One such site, Serpent Mound in Ohio, was thought to be created by the ancient Adena peoples nearly 1,000 years ago to align with the summer and winter solstices. Its precise purpose remains unclear, but many who visit the site conclude that it was meant to be a conduit through which cosmic energy could flow into the earth.

The sacred sites that call to you from afar–capturing your imagination and resonating deep within your soul–will nearly always be those that can help you forge a deeper connection with the divine energy that sustains all life. During your pilgrimage, reaffirm your intention to accept whatever gifts are conveyed to you through the sites you visit. Your receptiveness will help you establish lasting relationships with these sites so that you can draw upon their peace and their power from wherever you are.

Deepen Your Meditation With This Simple Technique
Part I of the Drum Healing Free Video Series

In the mid 1980’s I was introduced to meditation. I quickly discovered that I was not good at it. In fact, I was really bad. Let me explain.

“You know how in most meditation techniques you sit and you breathe and you focus on your breath and you empty your mind and let the thoughts just kind of flow?

Well, that wasn’t me. I had what’s called Monkey Mind. I’d worry about what was going to happen tomorrow. I’d obsess over something I said the day before to somebody or something I should have said that I didn’t say. I’d worry about how something’s going to work out that I had no control over, or any number of things just to keep my mind bouncing from one thing to another.

Forget trying to clear my mind and breathe. I couldn’t focus on my breath. But when I listened to the drum, and especially when I played the drum, I could become clear. I could be empty and I could just experience.”

Join me as I show you how to use the drum to make your meditations deeper. And easier.

This video presents a simple technique that you can use for your meditations. I also play the drum and lead you on a short meditation. And I provide a free audio download that you can use anytime you want to clear your mind.

Watch the video here. https://www.stronginstitute.com/blog/drum-healing-video-1/

I hope you enjoy this healing drumming experience. Feel free to share it with your friends.

Weekly Horoscope: Sunday, April 05, 2020
Georgia’s Weekly Horoscope

Capricorn is the sign of government and the status quo. The last time Pluto and Saturn lined up in Capricorn was 1518. (The beginning of the Protestant Reformation and break from Rome, which was a big deal.) This configuration brings financial problems, shortages and government restrictions of freedom of movement, as an old order is coming to an end. New structures will be built that are better because Pluto tears something down in order to get a superior result. These two planets remain close until the end of Dec. (with a slight relief in April, May & June). By Jan. 2021, they separate. We know that life is constant change. This means when things are bad – they will get better! (Yeah, yeah, it’s always darkest before it gets pitch black.) Remember: Hope is the feeling you have that the feeling you have isn’t permanent.

Aries (March 21-April 19)
Here’s the deal: On Tuesday, there’s a Super Full Moon opposite your sign, which will trigger tension between you and partners from now until Wednesday. Patience is your best recourse to survive this. However, in addition to this, your ruler, fiery Mars is at odds with unpredictable Uranus during this same time. (It mathematically peaks on Tuesday the Full Moon day.) This means you might have a blow up with a friend or a member of a group. A friendship might end. You will definitely feel feisty and independent and not want to be bossed around by anyone! Fortunately, Venus is in your House of Communications, and this will save your bacon because Venus will make you charming and diplomatic.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Tension that builds up between now and Tuesday, when the Super Full Moon takes place, will manifest in your work, your health, or something to do with a pet. The good news about any Full Moon, is that each month our problems tend to get worse as we approach the Full Moon, but after the Full Moon peaks, these problems diminish! Let’s hope this is the case for you. However, because Mars is at odds with unpredictable Uranus, you will feel rebellious against authority figures, bosses, parents and the government. You will want to assert your ego. Unfortunately, in these trying times, we all have to suck it up for our own sake and the sake of others. Hey – you can do this.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
There’s a Super Full Moon on Tuesday, which means your relations with kids and romantic partners will be strained until Wednesday. Remember who is the kid and who is the adult. (Yeah, yeah, Geminis are big kids who never grow up.) Think before you speak to save yourself some headaches and regrets. Meanwhile, back at the airport, you are dying to get outta Dodge! But you can’t. You’re grounded. Or you’re doing important work for which we are grateful. Therefore, temper your rebellious desire for change. Do something different wherever you are, to satisfy your urge for novelty and stimulation. Avoid arguments about politics and religion.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The Sun is still at the top of your chart, which makes you look good in the eyes of others. You are admired! However, the approaching Full Moon on Tuesday creates a tug-of-war between the demands of your work and public reputation versus the demands of home and family. On top of this, increased tension about shared property, insurance disputes, inheritances and something to do with the wealth and resources of others might explode in your face. (“I didn’t see that coming.”) Because of this unpredictable quality, do whatever you can to maintain your cool so that you can make wise decisions for yourself and your loved ones.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Please be careful because this is an accident-prone time for you from now until Wednesday. Verbal accidents as well as physical. Therefore, think before you speak or do anything because you will be tempted to say something that you will later regret. Why? Because along with the build-up to Tuesday’s Full Moon, Mars is at odds with unpredictable Uranus, and Mars is opposite your sign. Ouch! This makes you easily angered with others. You’re restless, impulsive and rebellious! We all feel this way in varying degrees because everyone is cooped up. But hey, this is a small price to pay considering the price of those who are suffering. Why not be the role model we need right now?

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Be careful with your money and possessions. Financial problems are at hand and will continue to increase until the Full Moon peaks on Tuesday. After that, things should look better. Until then, keep a lid on things because surprises related to your health or your job are in the picture. It’s true you are under assault; but the good news is that fair Venus at the top of your chart means bosses, authority figures or the government will help you. (Actually, someone might appeal to you for help.) No matter how bad things are – look at places like Syria, we are still fortunate. (I cried because I had no shoes and then I met a man who had no cellphone.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Heads up! The Super Full Moon on Tuesday is in Libra. This will create tension between you and loved ones beginning now until Wednesday. You need harmony. You’re a people pleaser and you like to get along with others (although you are a skilful debater!) In addition to this, fiery Mars is at odds with wild, Uranus, which will trigger problems with your kids and arguments or problems with a romantic partner. Parents please note: This Mars-Uranus configuration is an accident-prone time for your kids. This is a challenging week for you, which means you have to step up to the plate and display grace under pressure. You can do this.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
We all feel tension from now until about Wednesday due to the Super Full Moon on Tuesday. Your sign will feel it with health issues, work and perhaps something to do with a pet. You might find it challenging to keep it all together. Meanwhile, while this is going on, at the same time, home accidents, explosive arguments at home and something unexpected related to your family might catch you off guard. It’s a bummer. But forewarned is forearmed. Be careful to avoid accidents at home. Do what you can to keep the peace. Be patient and don’t make a big deal about things. If someone pokes you – don’t take the bait! Set a sane example.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Expect tension with your kids or a romantic partner between now until Wednesday because of the Super Full Moon on Tuesday. Make an effort to be cool, forgiving and accommodating with others. Your real challenge will be the fact that Mars is at odds with Uranus and Mars is in your House of Communications. Caution! This is the classic time for an accident for your sign – physical or verbal. Be mindful! Pay attention to everything you say and do. More than any other sign, you find it difficult to be cooped up because you are the traveler of the zodiac. Freedom is a survival issue for you. However, right now, staying at home is, isn’t it?

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Between now and Wednesday, you feel pulled between the demands of family versus the demands of career and reputation. This is because of the Super Full Moon on Tuesday. Be patient with parents and bosses. During this same time, something will disrupt your finances. Your earnings or your belongings might take a sudden hit. (Whaaat?) Protect what you own from breakage, loss, theft and damage. Fortunately, Venus promotes good health and warm relations with coworkers for those working at home or on the front lines. Your sign is quick to help your community in any way possible. At times like this, we need you!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
The Super Full Moon on Tuesday will trigger an accident-prone influence for you starting now until Wednesday. Knowing this ahead of time, slow down and be mindful! Be aware of what you say and do. This is especially important for your sign because another accident-prone influence is at play as well! Fiery Mars is in your sign at odds with your ruler unpredictable Uranus. This makes you feel impulsive and rebellious! If you feel things are intolerable, resist the urge to be rash because this will create a complete disregard for your obligations to yourself and others. Remember who you really are. You are someone who wants to make the world a better place!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
On Tuesday this week, there is a Super Full Moon cutting through both your Money Houses. The bad news is that problems with money, possessions and the wealth of others will be increasingly stressful until the Full Moon peaks. The good news is that after it peaks, these problems might decrease or even disappear? Hang in there! You have to do whatever you can to remain calm in your own skin because Mars at odds with unpredictable Uranus will make you feel restless, even explosive. You feel you have to break away from something. Unexpected disruptions will test your new way of living. But you can survive this test! Focus on making where you live more attractive.

Daily Horoscopes For: Sunday, 05 April 2020

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.

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

Your horoscope for today:

Epigram: The moon in Virgo illuminates your sixth house of health and wellbeing making this a great day to do something beneficial for yourself. Spend the day reading a good book, or spend time chatting with your friends. Your ruling planet, Mars, is square Uranus, a rather combustible transit, so avoid arguments, conflicts, and any kind of dare-devil risk taking.

Relationship: Venus is the ruler of your seventh house of partnership and is trine Saturn. While that may not be a particularly romantic transit, it is a great energy that supports deepening your commitment or taking your relationship to the next level. Whether that means seeing each other more frequently, moving in together, or buying a home, this is a wonderful time to explore what the right next step is for you and your beloved.

Career & Finance: The Virgo Moon shines a soft light on your employment and asks you to consider your emotional fulfilment when it comes to the job you have. Are you happy doing the work you do? Does it fulfil you and spark excitement to go to work every day? Hopefully the answer to these questions is yes, but if that`s not the case, perhaps it`s time to start dreaming a new dream.

Spirituality: Your home and family could benefit from some of your passion and attention. It`s easy to take people and things for granted – let your bio-tribe know how much they mean to you.

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

Your horoscope for today:

Epigram: The moon in Virgo lights up your fifth house of creativity and fun today so make time to enjoy your favourite creative expressions. Because this house also rules children, spending time with kids can be especially emotionally fulfilling. Waking up your own inner child can bring all kinds of delight and surprises your way!

Relationship: Passionate Pluto rules your seventh house of partnership and is exactly conjunct expansive Jupiter, bringing a beneficial energy to your relationship, especially if you all are creating big life projects together. Keep your spiritual practices front and centre so this transit doesn`t stimulate selfishness or ruthlessness, otherwise, put the pedal to the metal and full speed ahead!

Career & Finance: Venus rules your sixth house of work and is in Gemini, activating your second house of material affairs. Wherever she goes she bestows blessings and opportunities, and with a trine to Saturn in Aquarius in your tenth house of achievement you have the ability to give form to your ideas and to give structure to your projects. In other words, you can stop thinking about what you want to do and actually dive in and do it.

Spirituality: Shake things up a little bit and take a risk or two. Cut or colour your hair, or explore a digital Meetup gathering and connect with new people – expand your world and enjoy the increased space.

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

Your horoscope for today:

Epigram: The Virgo Moon illuminates your fourth house of home and family, making this a perfect day to fluff up your nest and tend to the needs of your loved ones. Of course, not to the exclusion of your own needs, but there`s no reason the two can`t be combined. Consider staying in and fixing a meal for everyone to share, play board games, or binge watch something fun with your bio-tribe; enjoy the love that surrounds you.

Relationship: Jupiter rules your seventh house of partnership and is conjunct passionate Pluto in your eighth house of intimacy and sexuality, so your charisma and magnetism are strong, and your sexual energy and sensual vibe are off the charts! If you`re partnered, then you have a great container for sharing this energy. If you`re single, have fun, but be wise and be choosy. Look below the surface to see who someone really is and trust your intuition, no matter what.

Career & Finance: The North Node of fate is retrograde in Cancer in your second house of material affairs, suggesting you take a more conservative approach to your finances. If you`re spending more than you`re making, stop!

Spirituality: A friend in need would love to hear from you. Just touch base, you don`t have to rescue or fix them, they just need to know someone cares.

Cancer
Personal theme: I feel!!

Relationship: Pluto rules your fifth house of love and romance, and he is conjunct expansive Jupiter in your seventh house of partnership, so your ability to attract romantic attention is at an all-time high. The question becomes, what are you going to do with it? You may need to reassure your partner of your fidelity. If you`re single, all you have to do is be considerate of the feelings of others as you enjoy all of the attention streaming your way.

Career & Finance: Mars rules your tenth house of career and achievement and he is conjunct Saturn right now. This stabilizes and grounds his fire and passion, so it becomes usable without burning everything it touches. What do you want to create and manifest professionally?

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

Your horoscope for today:

Epigram: Take a look at your finances today, as the Virgo Moon activates your second house of material affairs and core values. If you`ve been over-spending or neglecting to save, now is the time to reverse those trends. Your ruling planet, the sun, highlights the ninth house of adventure and expansion, so once you have your budget in place, get outside and enjoy the rest of the day.

Relationship: Neptune rules your eighth house of intimacy and sexuality, and lucky for you, he`s activating your eighth house even as you read this! He brings a touch of romance, tenderness, and magic everywhere he goes; the only drawback is a tendency to look at everyone through rose-coloured glasses. So, enjoy the sweet connections he brings, but do not ignore the red flags that pop up.

Career & Finance: You can create anything you want to right now; your will is incredibly strong (thank you, Pluto) and your mind is extremely creative and expansive (thank you, Jupiter). The important issue then becomes, just because you can manifest something doesn`t mean you should manifest it. This is why spiritual practices and working to stay in alignment with your Higher Power is so important. It prevents you from making costly mistakes and causing harm to yourself or others.

Spirituality: If you don`t have a daily gratitude practice, start one today. Once you learn to say thank you each step of the way, you discover you have more and more and more to say thank you for!

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

Your horoscope for today:

Epigram: The Virgo Moon activates your first house of self, asking you to touch base with your sense of who you are in the world. It`s tricky for you because you lean towards self-criticism, so try to set that aside and look for what others love and appreciate about you. If you encounter something you feel needs to be addressed, ask someone you trust before you dive into a self-improvement process that`s fundamentally unnecessary.

Relationship: Neptune rules your seventh house of partnership and shazam! That`s exactly where transiting Neptune is currently residing. He is romantic, kind, and carries a vial of magic dust which he sprinkles everywhere he goes. The only real problem with this planet is that he tends to look at everyone and everything through rose coloured glasses. It won`t hurt to ask a practical friend for their opinion; be sure to listen to what they have to say.

Career & Finance: You have a bulldozer and an architect living in your sixth house of work right now. Get-it-done-Mars is conjunct Build-it-carefully-Saturn, and while you might experience moments of paralyzed motion, you have the opportunity to get in touch with what you want and how you`re going to create it before you take action that can`t be undone. Wisdom is guiding you regarding your work, so pay attention.

Spirituality: Chill; take some time off, do nothing, and just relax. Reboot your nervous system and you`ll feel so much better!

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

Your horoscope for today:

Epigram: The moon in Virgo illuminates` dreams, visions, and altered states in your chart, making this a wonderful day to sleep late, wake up gently, and ease into the day. You may want to write your dreams down, so they don`t completely fade away as the day unfolds. They hold important information that will help you with a life challenge you`re having.

Relationship: Mars rules your seventh house of partnership and activates your fifth house of love and romance, underscoring your attractiveness and charisma and drawing people and attention your way. You may be feeling the need for more space in your personal relationships, so don`t be afraid to ask for that.

Career & Finance: The node of fate is retrograde in Cancer in your tenth house of career asking you to consider how you feel about your current profession and if you`re willing to put in the time, effort, and energy necessary to succeed. Is there something else you`d rather be doing? If so, at least give yourself permission to explore possibilities.

Spirituality: Take some time off and relax. You`ve certainly earned it.

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

Your horoscope for today:

Epigram: The Virgo Moon activates friendship and social gatherings in your chart today, making it an ideal day to rendezvous with your tribe and to spend emotionally fulfilling time in the company of people you love. You might not be able to meet in person, but a video conference can do the trick. With Mars and Saturn in your fourth house of home, you just might want to host a virtual happy hour with your co-workers or friends.

Relationship: Venus rules your seventh house of partnership and activates your eighth house of intimacy and sexuality, making you extremely attractive and filling you with a sexual charisma that`s fun to embody but may be hard to control! Just remember that actions have consequences and secrets never stay secret, so keep your behaviour above-board, treat others like you want to be treated, and all will be well.

Career & Finance: The sun activates your sixth house of work, and its ruler, Mars, is conjunct Saturn, all of which bode really well for you professionally. You find yourself in a positive light at work, and you have the vigour, ambition, and maturity to move forward and to advance your career. Believe in yourself and you`ll be unstoppable.

Spirituality: Your family and loved ones could benefit with some of your attention. Even a simple phone call will light them up with love and delight at hearing from you.

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

Your horoscope for today:

Epigram: The Virgo Moon activates your tenth house of achievement and recognition, giving you a chance to review how you feel about where you are professionally, if you`re emotionally fulfilled by your work, and what you`d like to see happen in your future.

Relationship: Mercury rules your seventh house of partnership and is conjunct Neptune in your fourth house of psychological roots. If you`ve suspected that issues carried over from childhood are affecting your relationships or your ability to fully commit, this is an ideal transit to explore that possibility, and to heal anything standing in the way of your happiness.

Career & Finance: Jupiter, your ruling planet, is conjunct Pallas and activating financial affairs in your chart. This transit sharpens your mind and gives you the ability to see far ahead, to perceive future possibilities. This is a beneficial period for you financially, but this transit also asks you to turn your attention toward social issues and to extend a helping hand to others. Look for things you can do, actions you can take, that benefit humanity; in doing so, you will benefit as well.

Spirituality: Avoid letting your ambition cause you to become so busy and engaged in the world that you neglect your spiritual life. Remember that when you put Spirit first, everything else falls into place.

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

Your horoscope for today:

Epigram: The Virgo Moon activates your ninth house of expansion today, beckoning you to come out and play. Your commitment to work and success is commendable, but if you don`t make space to relax and have fun now and then, you`ll burn-out, and it`s hard to come back from that. So, do something out of the ordinary today; put your responsibilities on hold and go have an adventure.

Relationship: Jupiter conjuncts Pluto in your first house of self, giving you physical magnetism, sensuality, and charisma that draws people to you like a magnet. This is heady stuff, and it`s tempting to misuse it. Just remember, the way you treat others always comes back to you; so, wield this power wisely and with compassion; and be honest, always.

Career & Finance: You are basically married to your career, and Juno retrograde in your tenth house asks you, “How`s that working out for you?” If you`re happy with your life, then carry on. If you feel like you`re missing something, or that other areas of your life are suffering, it`s time to do things differently.

Spirituality: Sign up for that course you`ve been thinking about. You will find the time necessary to complete it and it will inspire you in so many ways.

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

Your horoscope for today:

Epigram: The Virgo Moon activates your eighth house, tapping you on the shoulder, suggesting that you take a quiet day to yourself. Journal, self-reflect, take an online yoga or meditation class. It`s a day where introspection can produce powerfully positive results. If that seems hard to do, impossible to accomplish, then that`s in direct proportion to how much you really need it.

Relationship: The sun is the planetary ruler of your seventh house of partnership, and he is in Aries, activating your third house of communication. If there`s something you`ve been wanting to talk about with your beloved, this is a good time to do that. The Fire of Aries gives you courage to speak up, but the energy is contained enough that things won`t go off the rails emotionally.

Career & Finance: The North Node of fate is retrograde in your sixth house of work, giving you a chance to review your work goals and organize your professional life in a way that relieves you of concern and worry and lets you function efficiently. You may also need to set some professional boundaries; establish a healthy arm`s length between you and some of your needier co-workers. Remember, these are grown adults and you can`t fix them, or their lives. That`s not in your job description and it`s above your pay grade.

Spirituality: Do something kind and loving for yourself today. It`s okay to put yourself first, and today you really need to do that.

Pisces
Personal theme: I believe!!
Mutable & water sign: February 19 — March 20

Your horoscope for today:

Epigram: The Virgo Moon highlights partnership in your chart and is opposite Neptune and Mercury in Pisces in your first house of self. This sets up a tug-of-war that can leave you feeling imbalanced and off centre. Step away from the fray and give yourself some alone time to figure things out. Once you feel happy and centred again, you can step back in and work things out.

Relationship: Juno retrograde in Libra in your eighth house of intimacy indicates things have been emotionally intense lately. Your relationship, or your ideas and values regarding relationships and commitment, are undergoing powerful changes. The moon transiting your seventh house of partnership adds more emotion to the mix, so take a deep breath and don`t make important changes until life calms down.

Career & Finance: The ruler of your sixth house of work is the sun and he is activating your second house of material affairs. Put your finances in order, pay attention to your core values, and consider studying the Law of Attraction. This is a powerful period of prosperity and the more consciously you engage it, the better.

Spirituality: Make time for meditation and contemplation. Journal when you`ve finished, and you will be astounded at the wisdom that begins to flow through you.
