Tip of the Week:
While the fact that this Universal 1-Year began on a New Moon, which is in-sync with the theme of new beginnings, the fact that Summer Solstice (June 21st) occurs while the Moon is in its late waning phase lends to the increasing strangeness of 2017. In this regard, we might expect that this entire 9-year cycle will prove to be increasingly strange as well.
The reasons for this theme of eccentric and alarming drama are many. In some respects, the roots of these outer expressions are very deep indeed. Among these is that this dawning Age of Aquarius finds its earliest inceptions some 5 centuries ago. Few will understand the reasons for this but they are clear when understood. In other respects and featured in this 2160 year cycle is a theme of global awakening which can largely be traced to the internet. It is serving to revolutionize the truths that we have been taught and which have largely otherwise seldom been questioned.
As this year progresses and over the remaining 9 years in this cycle, since this first one has just begun, the firm foundations of accepted truth will continue to crack and heave. This will cause reactions and drama at every level of society. True to the themes of the Aquarian Age, the impulse of revolution will not soon subside; in fact, we should anticipate that it will increase measurably. Positively, this dynamic provides rich opportunity for personal growth and evolution and this is where I can guide you with the profound insights that I can access for you with the powerful tool that astrology is.
Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)
Balancing your social aspirations with more serious endeavors continues. On the deep end, cleaning, clearing, renovating and the like is indicated. This perspective could apply to your actual home but could hold psychological implications as well. Given the otherwise expansive tone of other influences, this process can be described as ‘getting in to get out’.
Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
Circumstances of late are pushing you to cover a lot of bases. Fortunately, your energy levels should be running high to support your multi-tasking efforts. Venus in your sign suggests the urge to try new angles, methods and/or approaches as well. Although you are willing to take risks, you will likely make extra efforts to calculate the odds.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You have and continue to take pioneering leads. Yet, you may feel pulled in two directions even stronger than usual. On one hand, you yearn for peace and solitude; while on the other, your ambitions to secure your position somehow are steadily deepening. Decipher how you can have both for full satisfaction.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Making extra efforts both externally, and behind the scenes as well, are keeping you busy. This includes attending to many details. Fortunately, you so happen to be quite able in this regard. You are especially excited regarding social events involving family, friends, and fun. Despite the extra efforts required, you are enthusiastic and willing.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
It seems everyone is contending with mixed messages and emotions these days and you have not been left out. Positively, you are in a social mood. On the other hand, you may be contending with inner doubts and insecurities. The first step to victory is acknowledging them. Then exercise gratitude and practice being fully present in the moment where problems conjured by too much though do not exist.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)
Getting extra attention in your social, public and professional life continues. However, the attention you are getting may come from a punchy and provocative approach which can have mixed results. In the bigger picture, you are maneuvering to advance your position and increase your returns. While the desire for more money is likely, you may also be seeking peace of mind.
Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22)
You are smack dab in the middle of a risk, venture and adventure cycle. If you have not acted on this opportune time, this is the last call for this round. Venus in Taurus speaks of money, particularly other people’s money and luxury. With your ambitions peaking and the urge to take strong initiative, you could really advance.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Change is in the air. It does indicate effort and toil, but the rewards are there too. Although you may be in low gear, your torque and traction are especially strong. The waning moon will guide you to simply follow through this week and save all fresh starts for after the New Moon on the 23rd. Meanwhile, romantic interludes beckon.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
An impulse to engage with others socially continues. However, your focus may not be all fun and games. Circumstances are pushing you to dig deeper than you might usually. This could just as easily manifest as a journey inward. Whether your style is mystical, shamanic, fantastical, emotional, or otherwise, you are in the mood to explore inner realms.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You have an eye for the details of late. This could manifest as an appreciation for art and/or the subtleties of things in general. What nuances and intricacies are gaining your attention? These are reflections of your beliefs and priorities, at least those that are currently significant. At the root, gaining inspirations for your own creative expressions is indicated.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Balancing work with play continues. This also includes a blend of endings and new beginnings. Such times can prove complex and confusing. Keeping it simple, you are just completing key cycles and new ones are poised to begin. Exercising a philosophical and detached perspective will help you to see the bigger picture and be patient and trusting of the process.
Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)
Amidst an otherwise busy cycle, you have also entered a time of deeper contemplation and reflection. This phase will end soon so make the most of it. Many new perspectives, ideas, and realizations are influencing your priorities. So, you may find yourself working inside and out to clear the old to make way for the new.
