Please go over to the "Year ahead" page and read your Next Year.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You might want to head home, possibly because you expect company or you are so tired. Either way, the shades will be pulled and gossip will reign. Saturday your charisma *****blooms and what started as a suggestion easily could be the finale of the weekend. Apparently, your unavailability triggered some strong feelings.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Tonight you can be found getting together with your friends and celebrating the weekend. Your charm soars, and a new person to the scene decides to get to know you better. For whatever reason, you vanish the remainder of the weekend. No one seems to be able to unearth you. Wonder *****why?

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You like being on center stage tonight as others party the night away. Plans evolve which delights you to no end for the remainder of the weekend. Certainly your friends will surround you, and ****fun happens, Someone shows more interest than just being a pal. This one is your call.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) If you have fantasies of taking off, do it now. If you wait a day, somehow, someone will rope you in and suddenly, you cannot go away. Responsibilities call most of the weekend if you are in town and available. Be smart and take off now. If you manage also to lose your cell-****

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Plans seem to pull you out of the normal Friday night scene. You might drop in, but it won’t be for long. Let the heat of a special bond warm up your night, and perhaps even weekend. The possibilities are ****multiple and could delight anyone’s imagination.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Defer to an interesting suitor who wants you to be part of their TGIF and more..You two are deeply bonded, perhaps more than you realize but will after this *****weekend. Do not nix any possibility...just yet,

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You will say yes to a last minute request that you fill in for someone at work. Your weekend blooms early Saturday morning. You might not have your pick if you are in the chase and hunt phase. You do manage to make the most out of the remaining two days. ****

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Romance has been blooming even before today. You might return to where you met each other or just go off to TGIF. Somehow you will connect adding much needed heat to the weekend. ****as you seem to be careful about plunging right in.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You might decide to head home early. You have pushed hard all week to accomplish what you want. At least nap before you bound out the door. With the torrid nature of Saturday and Sunday, you will need every drop of sleep you can get. You ****play the weekend away.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You cannot say no to an invitation or a call meant to lure you towards the caller. You jump right in to this weekend, ready for fun and good communications. Whether flirting over a fondue or enjoying TGIF, you get to know someone much better. Let time be your ally.****

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You could be juggling your finances to see just how far you can go right now, be it a night on the town, a weekend getaway or wining and dining a specific person.**** as you get the green light. You are in the process of getting to know someone better, you love the attention.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You beam ***** tonight and others cannot stay away from you. You enter a period of great fun if you can flow with the moment. Otherwise, make the most out of tonight without any great expectations. Saturday and Sunday prove to be fun, but nothing like Friday evening,

If you been a reader of this blog from the first day, you will know the only reason I started blogging was my son Geoffrey. The Washington Post at that time called him the guru of blogging. Then he decided to use his power against his mom for mom.

Dear President Obama, "Mercury retrograde..."

I imagine you are having a fit with the Obamacare website going south. I hate to tell you, but it might be until mid-November, if then, before you see a substantial change for the better.

Relationships / Solstice Points / Part 4
I am now going into something I became aware of as a new astrologer. Solstice points exist for every degree of the zodiac. Each planet in your chart has a Solstice Point. Mars Leaving Cancer about to enter Leo

Thank you for reading this blog. I know I have been neglecting my blog, long story, When and if we want to talk aspects and transits we can. My mind of late has been thinking about MARS.

This week I had a client write me. Something I had predicted in his chart came true. He asked would I like to go through the rest of his reading and give him the odds if they would come out. The big transits always produce a change.

The Daily column can be accessed on the side of this blog; this is its new home.

A blog written several weeks ago discussed Uranus going direct. I said that I personally liked it when Uranus goes direct because of the excitement this planet brings. This weekend past, Uranus went direct.

"I am not going to look at my chart"
I am not going to look at my chart. I am not. I went to update my website, which I do every evening. I put in the next day's horoscope. I have a login and a password.

Today I was told my trial period is over. I have been with the same system for over 13 months.

Uranus Is At Work
I personally like Uranus and all the excitement it brings. It is full of surprises. When this planet goes direct or retrograde, sometimes if it is aspected well in a chart well, one gets a wonderful wish fulfilled. not as one might expect, but it is fulfilled.

Mars Retro...Stop, Breath and Reflect.
It is time to check in. How has Mars Retrograde impacted you? Mars is anger, sex and energy for starters. Are you unusually angry? How do you express it? What about your sex life? (excuse me) Do you have the same energy as usual? Start looking in these areas.

Coming up: A Mutual Reception
Sounds sexy, doesn't it? Mutual reception.

Let's start talking about Mercury going Retrograde on March 12. Most of you know by now what a Mercury Retrograde does to you, though the sign the retrograde is in- colors the events.

Do You Have Attitude?
Recently I had a friend/astrologer relate to me what a whopper of a month November was going to be. Hard, unsettling etc. I smiled at her as another friend came up to us with a t-shirt saying: This is a great day. The irony was not lost on me.

There Is No Teacher Like history
Often when I am baffled about a situation, I go back into history for answer. This procedure is particularly viable in astrology. In fact, this process played a major role in my learning of astrology.

More on Solstice Points and Today's Planets.
The most read blog I have EVER done is about relationships and the Solstice Points. I will include it at the bottom of this blog. If- in a compatibility, a person's planets hits one of the other party's solstice points, it is a strong connection.

Jupiter: Moving Along. Did You Get Its Message in Pisces?
It has been this astrologer's observation that when a major planet, in this case, Jupiter, changes signs, it often delivers a final kick. The days before usually carry some personal message especially to the person who might not have 100% got its message.

Part 4: The Sun and Moon, Reflections On One's Ability To Relate
As an astrologer, nothing makes me happier than telling someone their chart reflects a strong ability to relate. However that does not necessarily mean at the point I tell then this, they are having an easy time relating–usually it is the opposite.

Part 3 : Your Sun and Moon: What They Reveal About Relating
Another combination that spells trouble is the sun/moon square. That is when the sun and the moon are approximately 90 degrees apart.

Part 2: Your Sun and Moon Reveals Your Relationship Issues. Full Moon Babies
The Full Moon chart is alo a combo that speaks relationship issues. This combo looks like sun in one sign and the moon in the opposite sign. Let's say Sun in Aries-Moon in Libra is an example.

The sun is man in a woman's chart. It is the man in his chart. In a woman's chart the moon is her.

Part 1: How Does Your Sun Touch Your Moon? They Speak About Your Relationships.
Many of you understand the full nature of this Venus Retrograde. It is interesting in the last weeks how many men and women have surfaced with relationship issues about those in their past. "Four years later, I am dreaming of him. Will he contact me?".

Vedic Astrology, Gems, Eclipses and Etc.
So many excuses as to why I have not been present.

But I have. To be a good astrologer, I must toss myself in the whirlwind of living. Sometimes I have way too much fun to get out.

Using Negative Aspects To Empower Us
In a conversation, a friend said: opposites are the same. I was quiet...thinking how can opposites be the same if they are opposites? That statement denied what I believed to be reality, at that moment.

Opinions Please: Love of Your Life
I have had a run on questions in my astrology practice. When they are not about money, they about love. I take these issues very seriously.

Part 2: Understanding Your Mars
As I mentioned in the past blog, though Mars has gone direct, does not mean the issues over anger will vanish. It is still prime time for working on them. In fact, it will be easier with Mars direct. You have an excellent period in the next two months to do this work.

The Good And The Bad: Yes We Are Speaking Of Mars Retro
Mars ends its backward jig this coming week, in fact, March 8. This phase about to complete can be difficult and painful to many, especially if they have not dealt with their anger issues, specifically-how they express their rage.

The Face of Evil I sometimes go around and ponder different issues, sometimes they stem from astrology, or the people I meet. Other times I really consider an issue which has come to light and then study it astrologically.

Evil is such a heavy word. I often wonder if someone can truely be evil.

To Your Next year!
I will be writing more in the next few days about the New Year trends, though I will go across the signs, and discuss the transits in a more mundane fashion. Below is simply the very brief copy for the newspapers about your 2010. Remember to read at least your sun, moon and rising sign.
Uranus direct reminds us of the Uranus Saturn opposition again
Probably a more full body of information has been written on the Uranus/Saturn opposition than ever before, thanks to blogs and the Internet. More thought has been given to this powerful opposition than in the past.

Thinking Of Saturn
Saturn often gets a bad rap, and more often than not lately, I feel I am the sole defender of the planet of responsibility and maturity.

I have two clients- one is quite knowledgeable in astrology but always is blaming everything on Saturn. So much so she has changed her rising degree.

Broken Heart Alley
How many of you have had a broken heart?

As an astrologer, there is not a day that goes by that I don't deal with a broken heart. I have a whole arsenal of sometimes meaningful statements, but the issue of what works best presents itself.

Dear Blog,

I have been edgy about you, especially about not attending to you. It is not that I do not love writing and sharing with all the people who read you, it is I am so overwhelmed.

Part 8: Relationship Series: Communications

I have waited awhile before addressing Mercury, the ruler of communications and its impact on relationships, all relationships in fact. I wanted to do some processing.

The Sun moves into the sign Virgo on August 22 a sign ruled by Mercury and in three weeks we go into a Mercury Retrograde.

Fun For Astrology Students
Many of you who are just learning astrology and get stunned/overwhelmed by aspects, houses, or how to put the chart together could enjoy this simple way of looking at a chart.

Part 7: Transforming With Your Compatible Relationship, Fulfilling Your Potential Individually And As A Couple
As we go over the many factors that are necessary to make a relationship successful, we cannot forget the human element. You can have a perfect compatibility and still not have the tie work.

The Purpose Of A Relationship: The Composite Chart (Part 6: Relationship Series)
I like to use the composite chart to determine the answer to that question. That type of chart is based on the midpoints of both people's planets and ascendant. The purpose is determined by the whole complexion of the new chart but also where the composite sun falls in the chart and its aspects.

Relationships: The Importance Of A Jupiter Tie –Part 5

We have discussed the following:

1. The Role of the Individuals Sun and Moon in Defining Intimacy Needs.
2. The Importance of the Sun and Moon Dancing with Our Sweetie's Sun and Moon.
3. The Role of Mars and Venus
4. Saturn Ties
5. Solstice Ties as Hooks.

Remember the movie or movies when an eclipse occurs and the primitive people of that film script think the world is ending? Sometimes when I see people upset with the knowledge but not the understanding of an eclipse, I am reminded of those scenes. The sky darkens, the winds etc.
