April 22 – 28, 2013
The Aries stellium went out with the expected violence and now we have the Sun, Venus and Mars in solid Taurus. This will be a month of seeking solidity, quality, security and loyalty. It will also be a month of stubbornness and unyielding mind sets for those so inclined.
Taurus is the sign of the abundance of spring and the profusion of growth as well as fertility. New ideas will manifest with ease under the influence of Taurus, as long as they are straightforward and not the pipe-dream sort of ideas. Goals are closer to being gained and a sense of being grounded will ensue now.
On Thursday we have the Full Moon in fearless, secretive Scorpio, joining Saturn. This will have different effects on different people, depending on personality; it will either cause nightmares due to clandestine activities being discovered or it will illuminate the boundaries of limits that are necessary, indicating how much space there is to fill up within and without.
There is a healthy mix of both harmonious and discordant aspects this week to make it very interesting, active and progressive.
Speaking of health, I will go to see the spine surgeon on Tuesday. Many of you have stepped up to help me out with these expenses since I have no insurance (was denied because of my hip replacement). If you feel so moved to lend a hand you can do it here: http://www.gofundme.com/2dhdgs
Have a good week and let’s keep moving forward and making it better.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Your birthday time brings the new life and plenty of signs of abundance around you along with your own stellium; currently the Sun, your Ruler Venus and Mars are in your sign, all of them opposing stern Saturn in your sector of Relationships. You may find that the people around you are somehow limiting you when you really want to bust out of the gate. You’ll have to juggle to make forward movement but you are determined and quietly get your own way. This week will bring a mixed bag of “yay!” and “uh, oh” but there is more ease than struggle on tap, so enjoy! The Full Moon in your sector of Relationships looks to be promising.
Gemini (May 21- June 20): Three planets now form the Taurus stellium; this would be the Sun, Venus and Mars in that one sign, your sector of Endings/New Beginnings/Collective Unconscious. These heavenly bodies currently oppose Saturn in your sector of Work/Health, indicating a possible new health regime for you due to discovering something going sideways in your system. Discipline is yours during this time due to the planets supporting your strength of resolve. Other aspects are mixed amongst the planets, bringing challenges with solutions, so it’s going to be a very active week. Fortunately, you’ll be able to have your feet on the ground! The Full Moon in your sector of Health will help you zero in on what needs to be improved.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): We now have the Taurus stellium involving the Sun, Venus and Mars in your sector of Friends/Goals. They are currently opposing Saturn in your sector of Expansion where Thursday’s Full Moon will also occur. This is actually pretty good for you since you’re a water sign and in need of some practical earth energy to help you see things rationally rather than emotionally. This week’s aspects in general are a good and balanced mix of favorable and unfavorable that will spice up your daily life in a way that reveals information you need as well as accurate assessments to help you see what is really there rather than what your initial judgment may say is there.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): Our new stellium in Taurus is in your sector of Career/Highest Potential. Since Saturn is opposing the three heavenly bodies there, you may feel the need to spend more time at home in order to gain some semblance of privacy and evaluation of your current situation. The Full Moon in your sector of Home (where Saturn is) will shed light on what you need to do in order to initiate the changes you want to make to your life. There is definitely conflict there in terms of stay or leave, stability or change. This week will be a real eye opener for you if you’re paying attention. A mix of other aspects will bring both challenge and good times in a manner that one will complement the other.
Virgo (August 23 – September 21): Our new stellium in Taurus occurs in your sector of Expansion and this week will oppose stern Saturn in your sector of Communicating/Thinking. The Full Moon will also oppose the stellium on Thursday, but hey, you now have four planets in fellow Earth signs and Saturn is making sure stuff gets done correctly! This opposition isn’t quite so bad personally and it is a fast-moving opposition anyway. The entire week is full of movement and action considering all of the planets and their positions relative to each other; for now, comfort and security are your goals and you are likely to manifest that, with compromise. There is always compromise, isn’t there? Sigh.
Libra (September 22 – October 23): We now have a new stellium in sturdy and reliable Taurus, with your Ruler Venus (who also rules Taurus) as one of the three heavenly bodies occupying that sign. With Saturn opposing this new stellium, a foundation is being laid that will be up front and honest, and Thursday’s Full Moon will bring what has been hidden to light so that it can be discovered for the good of all. The aspects are not so wild now in general, and this will make things more comfortable for you for sure. Your ability to manifest what you need is heightening, and you may very well surprise yourself in a good way!
Scorpio (October 24- November 22): Saturn in your sign opposes the new stellium in Taurus, occurring in your sector of Relationship. It is likely you will attract people to you who love to eat, so stock up the fridge! The Full Moon on Thursday is yours as well, and you will feel its magical effects as we move toward the weekend. Okay, so last week wasn’t as crazy good as I’d predicted but in a way it was due to hidden surveillance, your sign’s specialty. The influence of The Observer shone and hopefully in your own life you felt it and can take the success into this week!
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 20): We now have three planets in Taurus, forming the new stellium. This occurs in your solar sector of Work/Health, enabling you to manifest a passion into something potentially lucrative. With Saturn in your sector of Endings opposing this stellium (and the Full Moon joining Saturn on Thursday) your focus will be on rearranging your life into something new, taking only what you need from the past (experience, wisdom, etc.) into a new and exciting scenario. You’re able to focus and make magic happen, especially if you hang around with others younger than you (other than your own children) to keep your brain flexible and your mind open.
Capricorn (December 21 – January 20): Finally, help from the Heavens in the form of a new stellium in your companion Earth sign Taurus! The Sun, Venus and Mars are there, and Saturn opposes them from your sector of Friends/Goals. This really isn’t too bad because it will be easier for you to get the structure and predictability that you do best in. Thursday’s Full Moon will join Saturn and illuminate your intuitive side (yes, you do have one), so go with your guts and hopefully you know the difference between your intuition and judgment! At any rate, this is shaping up to be a good and active week, brimming with productive activities.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 20): Now we have three planets in Taurus, your sector of Home. This is the new stellium, pulling your focus to abundance, comfort, family and some amount of luxury (real or imagined). Saturn is opposing this new stellium from your sector of Career/Highest Potential and this will urge you to be at your best, for the sake of itself. In these pivotal times that have marked the 21st century, your brand of caring fits in well with the fast pace of youth, technology and innovation. This week you’ll be able to meet almost everyone at their level of consciousness due to your own heightened sense of well-being.
Pisces (February 21 – March 20): Okay, I think we can come up for air now…we have a new stellium forming in reliable, steadfast Taurus with the Sun, Venus and Mars there in your sector of thinking/communicating. Saturn opposes this trio from your sector of Expansion, so this mix brings a mysterious edge to the whole reality concept. Your brand of reality is fluid, but now some of that fluidity will become more solid as your values (old or new) drive you into new adventures. The aspects in general are more harmonious than not, but noisy so keep an ear to the ground and know which way the winners are going before you jump in!
Aries (March 21- April 19): This week begins the stellium in Taurus, and currently the Sun, Venus and your Ruler Mars are all there, in your sector of Finances/Resources. This would normally be a quite lucrative time but these three planets oppose Saturn in your sector of Shared Assets/Intimacy so you may have to curb your glitter to rhinestones instead of diamonds. Still, the structure of Saturn’s influence offers you new opportunities to uncover ways to fatten your bank account; you may create a new app or align your passion with a video game of some sort. Listen to the younger ones and the geeks since they know what’s happening out there! The Full Moon in your sector of Shared Assets/Intimacy will emphasize Saturn’s message for you.
