Personal Astrology Forecast for

Oprah Winfrey

29 January 1954
7:50 PM
Jackson, Mississippi

7 July 2005 - 7 January 2006

Produced by:

        If the time period for an interpretation is, for example, given as "July 1, 2003 (June 15, 2003 to July 15, 2003)", then it starts in mid-June, reaches greatest intensity around July 1, and ends in mid-July. The first date listed is the time when the influence has reached maximum strength; we can call this date the "peak date". The influence starts on the beginning date, gradually increases in strength until the peak date is reached, and then it gradually fades out until the ending date is reached.

        An influence may last for as little as a week to as long as half a year or so. It is a good idea to look ahead in your Astro-Forecast Report for long-lasting influences, as you otherwise may not realize that it is in effect until you are already several months into the time period of the influence. Some people underline the dates of long-lasting influences with a colored pen to draw attention to them.

        You may also notice that the same interpretation shows up periodically during the year; this is not unusual. In some cases the beginning and ending dates of the 2 influences are the same; the only difference between the 2 interpretations is the peak date. This means that this particular influence has two peak dates instead of one. It is even possible for there to be three or more peak dates for the same astrological influence. To eliminate redundant interpretations, you may be informed that the astrological influence also occurred earlier and that you should refer back to the previous occurrence of this interpretation.

        You may be wondering what the funny abbreviations after the dates are. For example, you may see "Sat Conj Plu", "Ura Trine Nep", etc. These abbreviations are given for the benefit of astrologers and they show the astrological factor that is in effect.

        We hope you enjoy your Astro-Forecast. For the benefit of astrologers, some technical details are given below.

11 June 2005         (10 June 2005 to 7 July 2005) Ven 11th H.

        Friendship is a significant focus for you during this cycle. Promoting close relationships in your community, creating bridges between people and between various organizations, or making your little part of the world more beautiful and friendly would be gratifying for you now. Artistic, musical, or literary friendships and alliances are favored. Differences and discordant tendencies between people are minimized during this period.


19 June 2005         (18 June 2005 to 6 Aug 2005) Mars 8th H.

        Power politics, sexual tensions, or underlying forces that may be affecting your partnership or marriage are stirred up during this period. Trying to ignore or avoid it won't work now - you'll have to clearly define and address your differences. Working out these issues can revitalize and strengthen your union.

        Shared finances, co-owned properties, or conflicts over an inheritance or legacy may also be a focus of your concerns during this cycle. This can be a productive time to work together on the areas in which your values and aspirations are in sync.


26 June 2005         (1 May 2005 to 9 July 2005) Jup Trine Sun

        This is a fortunate time period. With a little effort and direction, almost all of your endeavors can receive a major boost at this time. You have a big "green light"! Success and fulfillment on many levels - creative, professional, or spiritual - flow to you readily. If you're having difficulties in some part of your life, perhaps an ongoing challenge of some kind, the influx of renewed hope and trust in a positive outcome you'll be experiencing now will undoubtedly be of great benefit. Also, you could meet an important teacher, or someone who is very advanced in the area you are interested in may offer to help you. If you ask, you will receive aid, as well as important guidance or information from superiors and "higher ups".

Positive Potentials:

        Inspiration flashes of insight, or hunches that lead you to just the people, situations, information, etc. that you need. Happy coincidences. An expanded sense of what your life is all about, where you are and where you can go, how you fit in to a larger pattern. New optimism, self-confidence, and sense of well-being. Growth and expansion in any area of self-expression that is important to you - professional, educational, financial, creative, etc. Investments, purchases, and agreements you make now work out well.

        Wider public recognition, acknowledgement, and praise. Travel is rewarding, as are any long distance contacts you make now. Legal proceedings and dealings with the public in any capacity turn out well.

Negative Potentials:

        An overly relaxed, laissez faire approach to your own life; resting on your laurels; contented complacency or believing that "it will all work out" with no effort on your part leading to missed opportunities. Tendencies toward smugness increase. ("My life is so great. Ain't I wonderful?")

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Be proactive. If you have wishes and goals that have been put aside for a better time, this is it! Follow up and follow through.


27 June 2005         (1 May 2005 to 9 July 2005) Jup Trine Ven

        Light heartedness and easy, comfortable relations typify this time period. You'll be pleasantly unambitious, quite able to relax and enjoy yourself, so this is the perfect time for a vacation (of the melt-in-the-tropical-sun-with-a-pine-colada variety, not a high-intensity or physically demanding adventure). You feel unguarded, open, at ease, expecting things to go well, which attracts positive experiences and outcomes. In fact, you're apt to be quite "lucky" right now, easily attracting love, friendship, and good fortune in small and large ways.

        All social gatherings, festivities, celebrations, and artistic or cultural activities and events are highly favored now.

Positive Potentials:

        Feelings of generosity, openness, warm heartedness, good humor, willingness to see the good in people and situations. Sharing your wealth and resources. Increased appreciation for beauty, and wanting to enhance and beautify your surroundings. The pleasure of adornment and decoration.

Negative Potentials:

        Self-indulgence, excesses, overspending, eating, drinking, or playing.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        You may feel so contented that you fail to take the opportunity to reach to others, or to express the gratitude, appreciation, and love you feel. Take the initiative - say and do what's in your heart.

        Beware of compulsive and extravagant purchases. This is a good time to invest in beauty, but be sure you can really afford to do so.


1 July 2005          (30 June 2005 to 3 Aug 2005) Sun 11th H.

        Your community, social circle, and/or world events are a focus for you now. Beware of how you impact others, and how your actions and choices ripple out to influence the world. Conferences or other gatherings that are related to future developments and/or shared ideals and interests succeed for you at this time. You may lead, facilitate, or organize an important group function.


6 July 2005      8 AM(4 July 2005 to 7 July 2005) Mars Sxtil Jup

        Enthusiasm, confidence, and verve infuse your efforts now, almost guaranteeing a positive outcome. Your instincts, as well as your sense of direction and timing, are excellent! Risk-taking, engaging and inspiring others to support you, and taking action to realize a big goal are favored.


6 July 2005          (5 July 2005 to 8 Aug 2005) Merc 12th H.

        This is a period to observe, reflect, and consider the whole picture, or facets of things that you normally minimize or ignore. You may be getting messages from your intuition via dreams, feelings, or strange sensations that you would be wise to attend to. You also want to mull over and digest the information that comes to you now and are thus disinclined to come up with a ready answer or quick repartee. Your silence or reticence could be misinterpreted, so make it clear that you are thinking things through.


7 July 2005          (6 July 2005 to 30 July 2005) Ven 12th H.

        You may be called upon to help a friend through a troubled time or to put aside your own pleasure and personal gratification for another's sake. Someone you love and care about depends upon you more than usual.

        Also, circumstances or your own reticence may prevent you from openly declaring or expressing your desires and affection. Love yearnings which cannot be fulfilled in any direct way arise. Compassion - for yourself and others - is the key, but don't confuse this with self-pity or co-dependency in a relationship.


8 July 2005      1 AM(7 July 2005 to 9 July 2005) Merc Trine Moon

        Conversations with women, with family, and with people you are especially close to or have a long history with are going well now. By listening as well as sharing your own experiences and feelings, you deepen your rapport and connection. Telling stories, reminiscing, and discussing what is in your soul can be very rewarding. You are likely not only to hear, but to understand. Personal letter writing or journaling would also be fruitful activities.


8 July 2005      6 AM(7 July 2005 to 9 July 2005) Ven Trine Moon

        You're in a sweet mood and are a soft touch, especially for people you care for. Your family, children, home, or long time friends give you the most pleasure now, and you'll want to be with them. Sharing food or other forms of nurturing makes you happy. You may not feel like working or pushing yourself too much now. However, bringing flowers or treats into your workplace gives you satisfaction.


11 July 2005     3 PM(10 July 2005 to 12 July 2005) Ven Sxtil Jup

        Let the good times roll! A lovely sense of well-being and ease characterizes this time. If you've been under a lot of pressure lately, you can let up, let go and relax a bit. You feel freed up emotionally, and freer with your affection and your money as well. Your open-heartedness and easy attitude draws good things your way - friendship, love, opportunities, and material benefits alike.


12 July 2005    12 AM(10 July 2005 to 13 July 2005) Mars Sxtil Merc

        You say what you mean in a very clear, direct, and compelling way, which short circuits any problems that could arise from ambiguity or indecisiveness. It's an excellent time to do an oral presentation, take an exam, tell your side of the story and convince others of your opinion. Be sure to listen as well. You enjoy intellectual activities and stimulation, conversation, and problem solving.


12 July 2005     1 AM(10 July 2005 to 13 July 2005) Mars Sqr Ura

        Mishaps or disruptions due to recklessness, tactlessness, sudden outbursts of anger or impatience, and heated encounters are potential trouble spots at the moment. Slow down in traffic, and take precautions around fire, electronics, and sharp tools. Perhaps you can do something daring and outrageous that isn't dangerous!


12 July 2005     5 AM(11 July 2005 to 13 July 2005) Sun Qucnx Merc

        You are apt to be busy, moving around a lot, and interacting with people on the go. You have quite a bit of mental energy and may be restless if you have to be stationary for too long. Lots of ideas are being batted back and forth. Conflicting views and opinions serve to clarify your own thinking. Seek compromises on inconsequential matters.


12 July 2005     5 AM(11 July 2005 to 13 July 2005) Sun Conj Ura

        Your eccentric, impulsive, or rebellious side comes out in surprising ways, breaking you out of your normal patterns and routines. Especially if you've been craving excitement or have little opportunity for spontaneity, you may want to break free for a change. However, if you hold back all of this, minor upsets and disruptions may occur in the world around as you unconsciously "ask" for some surprises. This isn't the ideal time to interact with authorities, or anyone who manages, regulates, or governs your life, either.


12 July 2005     7 PM(11 July 2005 to 14 July 2005) Merc Sxtil Jup

        Your mind is positive and you are thinking in broader terms at the moment. Your intuition and sense of future trends is keen. Commercial ventures and transactions, communicating to a wider audience, teaching or learning, and making sound decisions based on seeing the bigger picture is the focus now. Send and receive inspiring messages.


14 July 2005     3 PM(13 July 2005 to 15 July 2005) Ven Oppos Merc

        It's time for a love talk! Any disagreements or problems you encounter can be more easily worked through now, and you're able to articulate your feelings and wishes in a way others can hear. You seek closeness through verbal exchange, a meeting of heart and mind. Style is important to you now as well, and this is a fine time to consult a beauty expert, get a haircut, choose clothing or make other aesthetic decisions.


16 July 2005     1 AM(15 July 2005 to 17 July 2005) Sun Trine Mars

        Courage, confidence, and the will to triumph energize you. You are able to move your objectives forward and to get a lot done now, without stressing or going into overdrive. Your positive conviction seems to move obstacles out of your way. You flow around obstructions rather than confront them, which is apt to be a successful strategy at this time.


17 July 2005     4 PM(16 July 2005 to 18 July 2005) Ven Sqr Mars

        Sexual tension or disagreements with people of the opposite gender arise now. You may want more than the other person is able or willing to give, or one of you may want togetherness and collaboration while the other prefers to be more independent.

        Compromises, adjustments, and working with the differences can bring about a satisfying balance, but it can be difficult to acquiesce when desires are so compelling. In any case, encounters with a definite erotic tone are part of the picture. Wear soft shades of pink, rose, or light green to ease dissonant tendencies.


17 July 2005     8 PM(16 July 2005 to 19 July 2005) Mars Qucnx Mars

        Your energies run hot and you could risk driving yourself too hard and burning yourself and others with too much passion or anger. Minor annoyances may feel like major aggravations; unexpressed frustration or hostility may erupt into the open; pushing, hurrying, or forcing things can lead to trouble. Slow down and cool down on every level: take the pedal off the metal, consciously slow your movements, drink or immerse yourself in cool water, avoid people and situations you know have the potential to rouse your ire.  Observe how touchy and aggressive your ego tends to be right now, as if every thing that doesn't go your way is a personal affront, and have a good laugh at yourself !


17 July 2005     8 PM(17 July 2005 to 18 July 2005) Ven Conj Plu

        Strong feelings are evoked in a close relationship. Perhaps a thorny issue that you thought had been settled will arise. Old hurts or hungers, or a particularly compelling desire for intimacy and connection, may be stirred up. Let your wishes, desires, and feelings flow, without blame or demands to be emotionally "fed" by someone who may be unwilling or unable to respond as you want them to. This can be an intensely creative time if you pour your energies into making something beautiful.


18 July 2005     4 AM(16 July 2005 to 19 July 2005) Mars Trine Plu

        Your passion, zeal, and inner courage are intensified now, making you enormously effective. You are super-motivated and can tackle tough challenges with confidence. You may take something old and completely re-do, re-make, revise, or renew it. Your creative power is flowing!


18 July 2005     7 AM(17 July 2005 to 19 July 2005) Sun Sqr Nep

        Your will power, focus, and concentration are diffused somewhat now, and this is not the best day to make critical decisions as you may be viewing people and situations in an overly idealistic light. Hope and fantasies tend to obscure reality. You also may want to put off activities in which discernment and mechanical skill are necessary. This is a fine day for dreaming up ideas, getting inspiration, or playing "let's pretend".


19 July 2005    11 AM(18 July 2005 to 20 July 2005) Ven Sxtil Nep

        Sympathy for the underdog or a friend in need moves you now. You may be asked to help out someone in confusion or distress, or to show unselfishness to your love partner. Going the extra mile for someone else will make you both happy, and your spiritual support may be more important than the practical assistance you can provide.


20 July 2005     7 PM(17 July 2005 to 28 July 2005) Merc Oppos Merc

        Intellectual bantering or a difference of opinion may create some friction now, but you can gain objectivity and another way of seeing something. You may be restless, curious, and in need of intellectual stimulation, or feel a bit overstimulated and nervous. You don't need caffeine! Slow down a little, especially in traffic.


21 July 2005     7 AM(19 July 2005 to 22 July 2005) Mars Oppos Nep

        You may be a bit unfocused or unsure of how to direct your energy at the moment. Circumstances may be confusing, strange, or in flux. It's fine not to do anything right now. Trying to press forward will yield mixed results. Avoid extremes, quixotic missions, or acting on ill-considered impulses.


23 July 2005         (18 Feb 2005 to 29 Aug 2005) Nep Trine Jup

        A mood of spiritual optimism, of being buoyed up from within, colors this time period. You feel more expanded and open, and yearn for grand and spacious vistas  - the ocean perhaps, or some other vast, expansive place. You are also attracted to travel for spiritual refreshment, learning, and growth. Your mundane concerns don't matter quite so much now, and you may find your ambitions subtly changing and moving away from material accomplishment alone. Religious studies, metaphysical pursuits, or charitable causes are more your focus.

Positive Potentials:

        Openness to miracles, magic, and the help of unseen forces. Increased sense of trust, hope, and optimism born of your connection to something greater. Spiritual pilgrimage. Increased compassionate concern for a wider circle, rising above petty personal self-gain. Using music or the arts for enlightenment or healing.

Negative Potentials:

        A certain passivity, irresponsibility toward material obligations, indolence, and over-reliance on providence or the good will of others is possible, but only if you already lean that way. Unrealistic expectations and big dreams, the tendency to gamble foolishly.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        As long as you avoid the above mentioned passive, irresponsible attitude, you should enjoy this time immensely. Commit yourself to one ACTION a day that is aligned with your ideals and compassion - perhaps a "random act of kindness" for a stranger.

24 July 2005     7 PM(17 July 2005 to 28 July 2005) Merc Oppos Merc

This astrological influence (Merc Oppos Merc) also occurred on 20 July 2005 (peak date). Please refer to this date.


26 July 2005         (17 July 2005 to 2 Aug 2005) Jup Sxtil Moon

        A spirit of cooperation or joining-with for mutual benefit, pervades this time period. Any community-oriented events, gatherings, or group activities you are involved with are satisfying and fruitful. You have excellent rapport with others at this time and both your personal and your public or business life are positively affected. Friendship is very important to you now, and if you have been neglecting that part of your life, now is the time to reverse that. Nurturing and investing in friendships will be well worth the effort.

Positive Potentials:

        Emotional generosity, good will and openness with others increases. Reunions or reconciliations with family members or friends. Healing or easing difficulties in a close relationship is possible if you take the initiative. Happy "for no reason".

Negative Potentials:

        There are few negatives associated with this cycle, other than simply not taking the many opportunities to enjoy and share with people that are available to you now.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        This is a time to enjoy and renew your spirit. Balance social and play activities with some time to reflect, replenish, and renew yourself. This is a good time to travel for recreation, also.


29 July 2005     6 AM(28 July 2005 to 30 July 2005) Ven Sqr MC

        You enjoy playing the role of hostess or host, displaying your good taste, affection, and appreciation for the finer things. Lightness, humor, and good times shared is the focus for you now. Go to the extra trouble to decorate, embellish, bring out your best china, and show people a good time. Opportunities to come together for a celebration, while not entirely trouble free, will be beneficial overall.


30 July 2005     6 AM(29 July 2005 to 31 July 2005) Ven Sxtil Sat

        Worries and pressures are eased now, especially if you've been overworking and neglecting your friends. You can lighten up a bit, relax, remember how to smile. You may seek out someone who is a bit older than you or a reliable long time pal to spend some time with. Your money sense is quite sound at the moment so if you're considering a purchase or investment, this is an auspicious day to do that.


30 July 2005     3 PM(29 July 2005 to 31 July 2005) Sun Sxtil MC

        The force is with you, go for your personal best! Father figures or those in a position to help you further your aims are encouraging and receptive to what you propose. Back up your words with action, follow through with a solid effort, and expect success. This is an ideal time to express what you really want, to show some style, and let the world know who you are.


30 July 2005         (29 July 2005 to 21 Aug 2005) Ven 1st H.

        Your sensitivity to beauty, aesthetics, and sensual experience strongly influences you during this cycle. You want to be in a gracious environment, to beautify your surroundings, to enjoy and take pleasure in life, to love and be loved. Rather than actively, directly pursuing what you want, you're more inclined to attract it through your personal charm, friendliness, or endearing qualities. Self- appreciation, personal style, and looking your best is important to you now, and you may want to indulge in some self-pampering to enhance your appearance and feel good about yourself.


30 July 2005     5 PM(29 July 2005 to 31 July 2005) Ven Conj Asc

        The art of self-adornment and the art of love predominate today. You're inclined to use sweetness, charm, sex appeal, or flirtatiousness to ease interactions. You're also quite conscious of your body and appearance now and you may buy some new apparel, get your hair done, wear your best jewelry, or otherwise enhance your looks or surroundings. It feels good to lavish loving attention on yourself, and your relations with others benefit as a result. Someone beautiful could enter your life.


30 July 2005     6 PM(29 July 2005 to 31 July 2005) Ven Qucnx Sun

        Your own values or way of expressing love and affection may differ from someone you encounter now, but because you are willing to please and smooth over differences, all is apt to turn out well. At the very least, you'll learn something about a friend or lover that helps you understand them. In fact, your differences may be appealing. As long as egos don't interfere, love will reign!


30 July 2005     6 PM(29 July 2005 to 31 July 2005) Ven Qucnx Ven

        Differences in tastes, style, or aesthetic preferences may arise in a close relationship, but you can compromise and satisfy both people with relative ease. In fact your differences may be very stimulating and attractive to you, especially if the connection is a romantic one. Love is definitely in the air! You may also want to enhance or change your wardrobe, furnishings, or surroundings to make them more comfortable and appealing. Probably you'll want to indulge yourself in some way and may avoid getting down to work.


31 July 2005     9 PM(30 July 2005 to 1 Aug 2005) Sun Sqr Sat

        You may feel somewhat diminished or discouraged now, perhaps from a rejection or other disheartening event. In any case, no quick or immediate satisfaction is likely now. It's best to slow down, conserve your energy, and simply get to work on what needs to be done. Rather than blame the world for thwarting you, attend to your immediate obligations. Do something to organize and bring order to your environment or practical affairs. You'll feel better if you can make some concrete progress, no matter how small.


1 Aug 2005      12 PM(31 July 2005 to 2 Aug 2005) Sun Oppos Sun

        Honoring others' personal style, desires, and objectives while not turning away from your own is a challenge at this time. Significant encounters, while not entirely harmonious, are likely. You can learn from the personal differences and contrasts presented now, and become clearer regarding your own path.


1 Aug 2005      12 PM(31 July 2005 to 2 Aug 2005) Sun Oppos Ven

        There may be some stress or lack of flow between you and a loved one or friend. Perhaps one of you is feeling slighted, neglected, or under-appreciated. It would be wise - and probably would require very little on your part - to reach out and make a loving offer at this time. Little snags or bruised feelings should be attended to, so don't allow pride to stand in the way.


1 Aug 2005       4 PM(31 July 2005 to 3 Aug 2005) Merc Sxtil Jup

This astrological influence (Merc Sxtil Jup) also occurred on 12 July 2005 (peak date). Please refer to this date.


2 Aug 2005       4 AM(1 Aug 2005 to 3 Aug 2005) Ven Sqr Moon

        You need pampering and tender loving care right now, not because you aren't well but because you simply crave it. Indulging yourself with treats, sweets, shopping, or whatever gives you comfort may be hard to resist. This is a good time to schedule a massage, hairstyling appointment, or a play date with your kids or a very good friend. However, try to avoid being too needy or demanding with them.


3 Aug 2005           (2 Aug 2005 to 1 Sep 2005) Sun 12th H.

        You're in the background now, quite possibly by choice. You may need extra downtime, or be a little fuzzy and diffused. This is a period of rest, and physical and emotional replenishment, not the best moment to press forward.


4 Aug 2005      12 PM(3 Aug 2005 to 5 Aug 2005) Sun Trine Moon

        You enjoy being around both men and women at this time and, in fact, you need to be with others, especially those you know pretty well and trust. Having a sense of familiarity and comfort in your  surroundings and interactions boosts your confidence. Everyday relationships are supportive and warm at the moment.


5 Aug 2005       2 PM(4 Aug 2005 to 6 Aug 2005) Ven Sqr Jup

        You may find it hard to stay on task today or to do any unpleasant, demanding work. Tendencies toward excess extravagance, self-indulgence or laziness are amplified now. On the plus side, you can enjoy yourself quite a lot, especially around people. You're generous, playful, good-humored - even lucky!


6 Aug 2005           (4 Aug 2005 to 4 Mar 2006) Mars 9th H.

        Vigorous philosophical debates, legal contests, fiery rhetoric in defense of a cherished belief or cause, and a strong desire for freedom on all levels are part of your scenario now. If you travel, you'll want to either rough it a bit and do something active and physical, or be able to set your own pace. You don't enjoy following the lead of others now.

        Beware of being impatient or contentious in your travels, or overly aggressive in your point of view.


7 Aug 2005       3 AM(5 Aug 2005 to 8 Aug 2005) Merc Trine Moon

        Conversations with women, with family, and with people you are especially close to or have a long history with are going well now. By listening as well as sharing your own experiences and feelings, you deepen your rapport and connection. Telling stories, reminiscing, and discussing what is in your soul can be very rewarding. You are likely not only to hear, but to understand. Personal letter writing or journaling would also be fruitful activities.


8 Aug 2005       3 PM(7 Aug 2005 to 9 Aug 2005) Ven Qucnx Merc

        It's time for a love talk! Any disagreements or problems you encounter can be more easily worked through now, and you're able to articulate your feelings and wishes in a way others can hear. You seek closeness through verbal exchange, a meeting of heart and mind. Style is important to you now as well, and this is a fine time to consult a beauty expert, get a haircut, choose clothing or make other aesthetic decisions.


8 Aug 2005       3 PM(7 Aug 2005 to 9 Aug 2005) Ven Sxtil Ura

        This is an excellent time to meet new people, to try on a more daring, updated, or unconventional style, and to break out of your usual social circle. Improvise, be spontaneous, and don't be afraid to show your eccentricities or unusual taste. You can wake up and reinvigorate a love relationship that's become too predictable or stale. Loosen up and remember what it's like to play!


8 Aug 2005       7 PM(7 Aug 2005 to 9 Aug 2005) Sun Sxtil Jup

        Your best self shines forth and you radiate an expectation of success, which can open many doors for you at this time. You are drawn to the people, places, ideas, or information that can profit you the most, and whatever comes to you now is apt to be of benefit. Extending yourself, widening your comfort zone, reaching out, and acting on your intuition enables you to make the most of this fortuitous moment.


8 Aug 2005           (8 Aug 2005 to 22 Aug 2005) Merc 11th H.

        World events, cultural and community affairs, or group discussions and plans are a focus for you now. You may teach, facilitate a group, or help organize and get the word out about your community activities. Intellectual interests, connections based on common ideas, or problem-solving in the context of a committee or group is featured.


10 Aug 2005          (5 July 2005 to 5 Sep 2005) Ura Oppos Asc

        Your close personal relationships, marriage, or other partnerships are revolutionized during this time. Longstanding beliefs, expectations, and assumptions will be challenged, and old patterns and ways of relating may change radically. People who were once reliable may leave or become unpredictable, or you may feel a compelling need to be new, different, more free, and more of who you really are in the context of your relationships. Those relationships which have become habitual and stale, or in which each person's truths are being stifled, are particularly vulnerable to being upturned or ending during this period. A "troublemaker" may appear on the scene, forcing confrontations or disrupting the status quo. Or you may be attracted to a fascinating newcomer or to someone "inappropriate" for you.

        Suppressing the need for changes could lead to an accident, or to an explosive encounter as the tension builds. However, respect for differences and the autonomy of each person, and an open-hearted willingness to reinvent your relationships or partnerships can lead to much more vitality and truthfulness in these important connections.

Positive Potentials:

        Liberations, fresh energy, and excitement. A positive move in location that fosters your independence and the creation of new life or new identity.

Negative Potentials:

        Experimenting with new forms of relationships or new partners in ways that severely disrupts others' lives.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        If changes are being "forced" on you by an unstable partner, this can be a particularly distressing period, and even if you are the one who's discontented or pushing for a change, it can still be unnerving. Be as gentle and compassionate with yourself and others as you can be. Nurture yourself with rituals or routines that comfort and ground you, such as daily walks, tending a garden or plants, avoiding stimulants, and getting rest.

        Cultivate attitudes of detachment, and trust, focusing on the new possibilities rather than only on what has changed or been lost.

10 Aug 2005          (10 Aug 2005 to 9 Feb 2006) Ura 6th H.

        Your daily work - both what you do and how you do it - will be revised during this period, possibly radically. The impulse is toward more freedom and independence. You may move toward freelancing, bringing more of your personal style and ideas into the workplace, or working in an unconventional way, piecing together your various skills, idiosyncrasies, and interests into making a viable living. You have less tolerance for tedious routine and authoritarianism on the job.

        On the other hand, you may be required to learn new technologies or adapt to a rapidly changing work environment, which may be both stimulating and stressful. Tension related to work can aggravate health problems. You may need to work differently, devise new methods of responding to stress, and/or benefit from alternative, non-mainstream methods of healing, such as acupuncture, yoga, or similar therapies.


11 Aug 2005      5 PM(10 Aug 2005 to 12 Aug 2005) Ven Sxtil Mars

        Passionate love and powerful creative drives are stimulated now. If you work in any of the arts, this can be an enormously productive time when your energy and sense of beauty and style really come together. Happy collaborative efforts of all kinds are featured. Camaraderie, friendship, and affection, even with people you normally don't socialize with, can be expected. In a romantic relationship, this can be a very special time. If you wish it, make it so!


11 Aug 2005      9 PM(9 Aug 2005 to 21 Aug 2005) Merc Oppos Ven

        Your interactions and conversations are on the light side now, with an emphasis on affection, humor, understanding, and pleasantries. This is not the best time to enter into any important negotiations, however, because although the tone will be friendly, you are inclined to be a bit too conciliatory or be swayed by charm. It is a much better time to go shopping!


11 Aug 2005     10 PM(9 Aug 2005 to 21 Aug 2005) Merc Oppos Sun

        Opening up lines of communication, actively initiating discussions, and conducting business over the telephone, by email, or through the written word is the theme of the day. You are clear and factual, and probably more chatty than usual. You may be inundated with phone calls or be running around a lot as well. It may be hard for you to sit still. A busy day!


12 Aug 2005      2 PM(11 Aug 2005 to 13 Aug 2005) Sun Oppos Merc

        You are apt to be busy, moving around a lot, and interacting with people on the go. You have quite a bit of mental energy and may be restless if you have to be stationary for too long. Lots of ideas are being batted back and forth. Conflicting views and opinions serve to clarify your own thinking. Seek compromises on inconsequential matters.


13 Aug 2005     12 PM(11 Aug 2005 to 15 Aug 2005) Mars Oppos Sat

        At this moment you do not want to waste time or energy and you may be impatient with those situations or people who seem to stand in your way or thwart your will. Resentment and an adversarial attitude may surface, especially towards those who have an easier time of it. You may be tempted to lash out at others who are really not the cause of your frustration but are simply safe targets. Instead of moving with these destructive attitudes, turn to what you can do in your own court. Self-reliance, patience, and even hard or disagreeable work can turn this time into a productive one. Find ways to relieve stress (that don't involve hurting others!)


13 Aug 2005      5 PM(11 Aug 2005 to 20 Aug 2005) Merc Sqr Sat

        You tend to see road blocks and obstacles, or come up against skepticism and doubt from within yourself or from others. Listen to the voice of prudence and caution, and do not attempt to press forward. Instead, pull back and see the flaws that can be worked on. Focus on repairs, strengthening weak areas, cleaning up and refining your presentation. Beware of letting negative voices dampen your spirits, however.


14 Aug 2005      1 PM(12 Aug 2005 to 16 Aug 2005) Mars Trine Asc

        Your vital energy is flowing strongly and you feel pleasantly ambitious and effective. You can rally others to action because of your own enthusiasm and can-do attitude, but you're equally happy acting independently and on your own behalf. Physical, active work or play is favored.


14 Aug 2005      3 PM(12 Aug 2005 to 16 Aug 2005) Mars Sqr Sun

        You're apt to be impatient and to use more force than is called for when minor differences arise. You may instigate, aggravate, or stir up trouble either without realizing it (by being too loud, overstepping others' boundaries, or making assumptions), or even on purpose. You could use this abundance of energy for accomplishment, if you so choose. Tone down aggressive tendencies by wearing soft shades of blue, lavender, or pink, and avoid red or orange.


14 Aug 2005      4 PM(12 Aug 2005 to 16 Aug 2005) Mars Sqr Ven

        Powerful desires and amorous feelings are stimulated now perhaps through an enticing interaction or personal encounter. You take the lead in social situations or attract personal attention. Coming on too strong, not picking up on subtle cues, or being inappropriate in a social sense are pitfalls of this time. Strive for a balance between taking the initiative and being sensitive and aware of others' needs and wants. If you are usually shy and unassertive, this is your moment to come out and take a risk even if you're a bit awkward.


16 Aug 2005     10 AM(15 Aug 2005 to 17 Aug 2005) Sun Sqr Mars

        A battle of wills or simply the stress of an overly pushy, ambitious, hurried approach can make this an unpleasant time, even if you "win" or achieve what you wanted to. Strong ego drives are activated now, and it would be best to moderate yourself if you don't want to arouse antagonism. Aim for your personal best rather than competing with others. Vigorous sports can be a good expression for strong energies that need to come out, but beware of over-exerting yourself.


16 Aug 2005      2 PM(15 Aug 2005 to 17 Aug 2005) Sun Conj Plu

        Deep feelings, desires, fascinations, and compulsions move you now, revealing aspects of yourself that usually don't show on the surface. You may be extremely single-minded and driven to do, accomplish, have, or learn about something. Something that has been hidden or lost may come to light. Try to be aware of what's motivating you today, and refrain from forcing your agenda onto others.


17 Aug 2005     11 PM(11 Aug 2005 to 20 Aug 2005) Merc Sqr Sat

This astrological influence (Merc Sqr Sat) also occurred on 13 Aug 2005 (peak date). Please refer to this date.


18 Aug 2005      3 PM(17 Aug 2005 to 19 Aug 2005) Sun Sxtil Nep

        Light some candles or put on your favorite music to create a mood and atmosphere where magic can happen. Or engage in activities purely for the inner rewards, like bringing a meal to a friend or some other random act of kindness. This is a day to cultivate spiritual well being and dream peace solutions.


19 Aug 2005     12 PM(9 Aug 2005 to 21 Aug 2005) Merc Oppos Sun

This astrological influence (Merc Oppos Sun) also occurred on 11 Aug 2005 (peak date). Please refer to this date.


19 Aug 2005      1 PM(9 Aug 2005 to 21 Aug 2005) Merc Oppos Ven

This astrological influence (Merc Oppos Ven) also occurred on 11 Aug 2005 (peak date). Please refer to this date.


20 Aug 2005      5 PM(18 Aug 2005 to 22 Aug 2005) Mars Qucnx Moon

        Just DO IT is your motto now. You're in the mood for action and may be especially disgruntled by others' indecisiveness, passivity, or laziness. Beware of emotional outbursts and aggressive maneuvering in traffic or at home, because what you perceive to be slowness on the part of others may just be your own impatience. However, ongoing or chronic tensions that you try to ignore most of the time are likely to erupt now. This isn't the best time to visit the in-laws, or to work out problems with people you're close to. Find positive ways to let off steam. A vigorous tennis match, perhaps?


21 Aug 2005          (15 Aug 2005 to 26 Aug 2005) Jup Trine Jup

        You are feeling hopeful, optimistic, and at ease, and the positive energy you are projecting seems to magically open doors for you. In fact this can be a time of unusually good fortune and well-being.

        You have a great deal of support now for whatever you want to do, be, or have in your life. New people and environments are friendly to you, and you are attracted to the expansion they offer you. This is an excellent time to travel, to begin a course of study for self-improvement or self-knowledge, and to share your gifts more widely with the world.

        If you are overbalanced in the area of work, this is also a wonderful time to take a period of refreshment and play.

Positive Potentials:

        Ease, flow, relaxation of excessive efforts or worrying. A sense of gratitude, generosity, abundance, fulfillment. Seeing the positives. Feeling connected to your source, the universe, or the larger whole. Greater openness to people, ideas, and experiences that can enrich your life on all levels.

Negative Potentials:

        Tendencies towards self-indulgence, laziness, or personal irresponsibility can come up if you are already strongly inclined that way.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Overall this is a very positive time, especially if you follow up on what is offered to you now, and share your good fortune.


21 Aug 2005          (20 Aug 2005 to 16 Sep 2005) Ven 2nd H.

        You appreciate fine things and are attracted to beautiful objects and artistry, as well as anything that enhances your pleasure, comfort, and enjoyment. Making purchases and investments in luxury items, beautiful property, or other things of lasting value and appeal is favored now. However you are more inclined to let personal tastes and your love for something or someone dictate your choices rather than objective considerations, and thus you may pay more for these things than you might at other times. You are not only interested in acquiring but also in sharing and sweetly giving. You value love and friendship a great deal now, and you want to show it.


22 Aug 2005          (20 Aug 2005 to 9 Sep 2005) Merc 12th H.

        This is a period to observe, reflect, and consider the whole picture, or facets of things that you normally minimize or ignore. You may be getting messages from your intuition via dreams, feelings, or strange sensations that you would be wise to attend to. You also want to mull over and digest the information that comes to you now and are thus disinclined to come up with a ready answer or quick repartee. Your silence or reticence could be misinterpreted, so make it clear that you are thinking things through.


23 Aug 2005     10 AM(22 Aug 2005 to 24 Aug 2005) Ven Trine MC

        Your ability to harmonize, to create bridges between two polarized "camps", or simply to get along with people, assists you professionally. You're more sensitive to the personal element of your work; appreciating and being appreciated for what you contribute is highlighted. You may be tempted to play matchmaker also!


23 Aug 2005      2 PM(22 Aug 2005 to 24 Aug 2005) Merc Trine Moon

        Conversations with women, with family, and with people you are especially close to or have a long history with are going well now. By listening as well as sharing your own experiences and feelings, you deepen your rapport and connection. Telling stories, reminiscing, and discussing what is in your soul can be very rewarding. You are likely not only to hear, but to understand. Personal letter writing or journaling would also be fruitful activities.


24 Aug 2005          (27 July 2005 to 19 Sep 2005) Ura Trine Sat

        This is the time to make innovative changes, to work with new material, and to introduce new methods, techniques, and concepts into your work. If you work in a conservative environment with other people, you may be surprised to discover how open they are at this time to implementing unusual solutions or making needed changes. The themes of this period are diversity, invention, creative problem-solving, and changes which update but don't overthrow the existing structures of your life.

        Areas in your life aside from work that you may have struggled with or endured for a long time could change now as well. If you make a renewed positive effort, taking a different approach, the old unyielding problem can shift.

        Overall this is a time of increasing freedom within the confines of your current responsibilities and commitments. However, if no real change is possible in your situation, you may move on, and this transition will be less stressful than you might imagine.

Positive Potentials:

        Learning exciting new working methods or practical techniques and strategies. Incorporating newness, spontaneity, creativity, and experimentation into an old form. Making change with ease.

Negative Potentials:

        Some impatience or intolerance for the old standards and ways is likely, but unless you are already leaning in that direction, you won't be terribly frustrated, just desirous of bettering the situation.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Trust your instincts, intuition, and timing. Things go surprisingly well, in fact they may move faster than you anticipate, as long as you don't push.


24 Aug 2005     11 PM(24 Aug 2005 to 25 Aug 2005) Ven Trine Sun

        Being with people and enjoying good times (especially with beautiful, charming, lighthearted people) is really what you want now. You're in a friendly and cooperative mood which brings ease to your interactions and an overall sense of harmony to your day. Because you are open to love and friendly gestures, you will attract loving people into your experience.


24 Aug 2005     11 PM(24 Aug 2005 to 25 Aug 2005) Ven Trine Ven

        Cooperation, affection, and sweet feelings color this moment. All friendships and intimate or personal interactions are highly favored. Certainly you won't want to be alone today, nor need you be. Any overtures you make will be gladly received. Love is flowing! You may feel a bit lazy and pleasantly indulgent as well.


27 Aug 2005      4 AM(26 Aug 2005 to 28 Aug 2005) Merc Sxtil Jup

        Your mind is positive and you are thinking in broader terms at the moment. Your intuition and sense of future trends is keen. Commercial ventures and transactions, communicating to a wider audience, teaching or learning, and making sound decisions based on seeing the bigger picture is the focus now. Send and receive inspiring messages.


27 Aug 2005     10 AM(26 Aug 2005 to 28 Aug 2005) Ven Sxtil Moon

        You're in a sweet mood and are a soft touch, especially for people you care for. Your family, children, home, or long time friends give you the most pleasure now, and you'll want to be with them. Sharing food or other forms of nurturing makes you happy. You may not feel like working or pushing yourself too much now. However, bringing flowers or treats into your workplace gives you satisfaction.


29 Aug 2005      5 PM(29 Aug 2005 to 30 Aug 2005) Merc Oppos Merc

        Intellectual bantering or a difference of opinion may create some friction now, but you can gain objectivity and another way of seeing something. You may be restless, curious, and in need of intellectual stimulation, or feel a bit overstimulated and nervous. You don't need caffeine! Slow down a little, especially in traffic.


30 Aug 2005      8 PM(29 Aug 2005 to 31 Aug 2005) Sun Sqr MC

        Relations with men, people in authority, or father figures are featured today. You may be thinking about past successes or failures and how those influence what you aim for now. There may be some friction between your will and someone else's and a need to humble yourself in order for things to proceed. Seek win-win situations.


30 Aug 2005      9 PM(30 Aug 2005 to 31 Aug 2005) Ven Trine Jup

        Let the good times roll! A lovely sense of well-being and ease characterizes this time. If you've been under a lot of pressure lately, you can let up, let go and relax a bit. You feel freed up emotionally, and freer with your affection and your money as well. Your open-heartedness and easy attitude draws good things your way - friendship, love, opportunities, and material benefits alike.


1 Sep 2005      12 AM(31 Aug 2005 to 1 Sep 2005) Merc Sqr Mars

        You may be challenged to defend your ideas, plans, or methods at this time. Thinking on your feet and rapid responses will be necessary, and a few hot words may be exchanged. Certainly you can elect to keep a cool head and avoid unnecessary verbal confrontation, but it will take some effort now. Wear soothing, cool colors like blue or lavender, and avoid red!


1 Sep 2005       2 AM(31 Aug 2005 to 2 Sep 2005) Sun Sxtil Sat

        You have good stamina, concentration, and a focus on taking care of earthly realities, practical necessities, and chores. Inner satisfaction comes from accomplishing your tasks and meeting responsibilities. You may not be especially gregarious or jovial now unless other astrological factors are strong, but you can definitely have a solid sense of achievement at the end of the day.


1 Sep 2005       3 AM(31 Aug 2005 to 2 Sep 2005) Merc Conj Plu

        You have exceptional concentration and can focus your mind on solving difficult problems, unearthing the contacts or the information you need, relentlessly probing until you get to the core of a matter. You may also have an especially heavy or deep conversation, with issues that have been buried for sometime coming up for re-examination. Taboo topics, extremely private information, or things that you'd forgotten enter your awareness.


1 Sep 2005       3 PM(31 Aug 2005 to 2 Sep 2005) Sun Conj Asc

        Your personal power and charisma shine brightly today, making this an especially fortuitous day to go out and make an impact on others and the world around you. You may well be the center of attention or attract a following. Making a public presentation, leading or directing people, or initiating a new venture is highly favored. This could be the birthday of one of your favorite people, too.


1 Sep 2005           (31 Aug 2005 to 28 Sep 2005) Sun 1st H.

        This is an excellent time to promote yourself, to make your intentions and purposes known, and to make an impact on your world sheerly by the power of your presence. If you want to be seen and to make a definite impression, this is the time. You project confidence and self-assuredness, making others take note.


1 Sep 2005       4 PM(31 Aug 2005 to 2 Sep 2005) Sun Qucnx Sun

        Honoring others' personal style, desires, and objectives which not turning away from your own is a challenge at this time. Significant encounters, while not entirely harmonious, are likely. You can learn from the personal differences and contrasts presented now, and become cleared regarding your own path.


1 Sep 2005       5 PM(31 Aug 2005 to 2 Sep 2005) Sun Qucnx Ven

        There may be some stress or lack of flow between you and a loved one or friend. Perhaps one of you is feeling slighted, neglected, or under-appreciated. It would be wise - and probably will require very little on your part - to reach out and make a loving offer at this time. Little snags or bruised feelings should be attended to, so don't allow pride to stand in the way.


2 Sep 2005       5 AM(1 Sep 2005 to 3 Sep 2005) Merc Sxtil Nep

        Imaginative, artistic, or spiritual topics occupy your mind and conversations today. You may be especially telepathic with the people around you, sensing their thoughts and emotions rather easily. None of this is apt to be terribly distracting and in fact will probably be rather subtle, yet it can add another dimension to your interactions. Listen to your intuition.


3 Sep 2005      12 AM(2 Sep 2005 to 3 Sep 2005) Ven Trine Merc

        Pleasantries, humor, and a light touch sweeten your interactions today. You have an extra measure of tact and charm when talking on the phone, writing letters, or meeting people and you tend to veer away from controversial or unpleasant topics. Your mind may be pleasantly lazy. Light romantic comedies, "fun" fiction, and a break from serious striving appeal to you. Social or cultural events are favored.


3 Sep 2005      12 AM(2 Sep 2005 to 4 Sep 2005) Ven Sqr Ura

        Some tension between being independent and being close or intimately involved could arise now.  A need for some personal space or an urge to temporarily disengage and go off on your own may be part of this, or a friend or partner may express those needs. A last-minute change of plans, or some other unexpected event, challenges your ability to stay connected; a sudden break or a quick beginning to a new friendship or romance is equally likely.


4 Sep 2005       4 PM(3 Sep 2005 to 5 Sep 2005) Sun Sqr Moon

        Any tension between your conscious actions and your emotional needs, wishes, or feelings that has been bubbling beneath the surface will show itself now. Strained relationships, irritability, or a subtle resistance and lack of enthusiasm are possible ways you might notice this. If you find yourself acting like a whiny or willful child, pay attention to what you are needing. Self-comfort and care, a little extra rest, or acknowledging feelings can re-energize you.


6 Sep 2005       7 AM(5 Sep 2005 to 7 Sep 2005) Ven Sxtil Plu

        Powerful romantic and creative energies are flowing now. A friendship intensifies through deep sharing, or an erotic interlude evolves from a strongly emotional connection. On another level, you may feel compelled to redesign or remake your wardrobe, surroundings, or a creative project you're in the midst of, to make it more pleasing, rich, and beautiful.


7 Sep 2005      11 PM(7 Sep 2005 to 8 Sep 2005) Ven Conj Nep

        Love yearnings, especially for an idealized or romantic or spiritual kind of love, are awakened now, perhaps by a film or some other artistic image. You need and respond strongly to beauty, aesthetics, the arts, the ocean, poetry, music. Your tender side comes to the fore, too, and you might be moved to adopt a stray dog, cat, or needy person. You may confuse pity with personal attraction or be especially indulgent with people, also.


8 Sep 2005       2 PM(8 Sep 2005 to 9 Sep 2005) Merc Sqr MC

        Intelligently organizing, planning, or taking care of correspondence would be wise now. The more uncluttered and systematic you are, the more good ideas, decisions, and directions can emerge. Speaking with a parent or elder and getting their perspective, or working something through with them, is also useful now.


8 Sep 2005       9 PM(7 Sep 2005 to 9 Sep 2005) Sun Sqr Jup

        You tend to overreach, overextend, and promise or expect too much, in an overly optimistic assessment of what you can do right now. You see all the possibilities in a positive light, minimizing the potential obstacles. If you commit to anything now, be certain it's something you're truly willing to follow through on. Mutually beneficial contacts are fostered, especially with people at a distance.


9 Sep 2005       5 AM(8 Sep 2005 to 10 Sep 2005) Merc Sxtil Sat

        This is a good day for quiet thinking and work that entails intellectual or technical skill, craftsmanship, or careful attention to detail. Wrangling with practical problems and logistics, finding intelligent solutions and completing tasks and projects are favored. You meet deadlines on time and enjoy taking care of business. A library or quiet room where you can be alone and just do your work appeals to you now. This is also a fine time to take an examination, either written or oral.


9 Sep 2005      12 PM(8 Sep 2005 to 10 Sep 2005) Merc Qucnx Ven

        Your interactions and conversations are on the light side now, with an emphasis on affection, humor, understanding, and pleasantries. This is not the best time to enter into any important negotiations, however, because although the tone will be friendly, you are inclined to be a bit too conciliatory or be swayed by charm. It is a much better time to go shopping!


9 Sep 2005      12 PM(8 Sep 2005 to 10 Sep 2005) Merc Qucnx Sun

        Opening up lines of communication, actively initiating discussions, and conducting business over the telephone, by email or through the written word is the theme of the day. You are clear and factual, and probably more chatty than usual. You may be inundated with phone calls or be running around a lot as well. It may be hard for you to sit still. A busy day!


9 Sep 2005      12 PM(8 Sep 2005 to 10 Sep 2005) Merc Conj Asc

        You initiate contact and take the lead in discussions, meetings, interviews, or classes. Openly sharing your ideas and information, or being a messenger for some kind of news, is featured. Mentally sharp and alert, this is a good time to learn or gather information you'll need later.


9 Sep 2005           (8 Sep 2005 to 23 Sep 2005) Merc 1st H.

        Your physical and mental energies are quickened now and you prefer to be mobile and making contact with the world rather than anchored to one location or task. You're ready to share your thoughts on a variety of subjects, and you do this well at this time. Making presentations, negotiating and discussing options, and getting your point of view across in a clear, direct manner are emphasized.


9 Sep 2005           (4 Sep 2005 to 14 Sep 2005) Jup Trine Merc

        Your mental clarity, foresight, and ability to see overall patterns and long-term trends is heightened, making this an excellent time to make decisions, commitments, or plans. At the same time, you're feeling optimistic and positive, seeing plenty of possibilities and ways you can improve or expand.

        You're very interested in and open to learning now also. You may attract some new information, ideas, or social and/or professional connections which significantly assist you. Traveling, especially for teaching or learning purposes, is favored now as well.

Positive Potentials:

        An open, expanded point of view, coupled with the ability to maintain humor and perspective so that petty problems don't obscure your bigger vision. Anything involving communications, speaking, or publishing is favored.

Negative Potentials:

        There are no negatives associated with this cycle. In fact, this influence can help lighten or ease any other difficult energies you may be dealing with during this time.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Trust your intuition, it is apt to be clear and accurate now.


9 Sep 2005           (4 Sep 2005 to 14 Sep 2005) Jup Sqr Ura

        Erratic but fortunate turns and twists, surprises and sudden opportunities, and synchronicities which align you with the larger order are activated now. There may be some new person or information that opens up new worlds for you and points the way to the future. You have the confidence, curiosity, and faith to try a new, radically different approach which can lead to a big breakthrough.

        Your visionary, intuitive, and inspirational energies are opening so that you see possibilities and future developments more clearly. You're more adventurous, more hopeful, less willing to be constricted, more willing to take chances. Humor, playfulness, a philosophical detachment from both failure and success, and spontaneous foolish joy have a liberating effect upon you.

Positive Potentials:

        Positive changes in both the personal and professional arenas, which have far-reaching consequences. Opening up philosophical or intellectual belief systems to a breath of fresh air. Changing and expanding your thinking. Sudden windfalls, lucky chances, a gift from the blue. Unexpected promotion.

Negative Potentials:

        Magnifying and exaggerating the potential benefits of a new idea or venture. Blowing off responsibilities and the voice of conservative wisdom.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        It is important for you to have outlets for freedom and your restless need for newness and adventure. Vary your pace, your routine, your usual daily activities to include more play.

        Avoid extremes when speculating, investing, or gambling. Overall your intuitions are leading you in the right direction but being overly optimistic can lead to unwise actions. Play only with what you can afford to happily part with.


10 Sep 2005      9 AM(6 Sep 2005 to 14 Sep 2005) Mars Sqr Merc

        You are mentally sharp and quick at this time but may be abrupt, impatient, and cutting with your words as well. Aggression or hurry can lead to cuts and scrapes, needless arguments, fender benders, or headaches. Consciously slow your movements and breathing down just a bit and give yourself plenty of time to get where you're going, or work off steam by running or taking a brisk walk.


10 Sep 2005     11 AM(7 Sep 2005 to 14 Sep 2005) Mars Sxtil Ura

        You crave challenge, action, something fresh and exciting, and while you won't instigate a fight, you won't back away from one either.

        The thrill-seeker or adventurer in you comes out. You have bursts of energy and need to do something that is, for you, original and daring.


11 Sep 2005     12 AM(10 Sep 2005 to 12 Sep 2005) Merc Sqr Moon

        Gaining objectivity about your past through talking or writing about it, needing to talk on an intimate feeling level, or reconnecting to someone you have a long history with is featured. Personal topics interest you much more than factual or philosophical discussion. If you tend to gossip or spend a lot of time analyzing your own and other people's feelings and motives, you are especially likely to do so now. Phone home!


12 Sep 2005      3 PM(11 Sep 2005 to 13 Sep 2005) Sun Qucnx Merc

        You are apt to be busy, moving around a lot, and interacting with people on the go. You have quite a bit of mental energy and may be restless if you have to be stationary for too long. Lots of ideas are being batted back and forth. Conflicting views and opinions serve to clarify your own thinking. Seek compromises on inconsequential matters.


12 Sep 2005      4 PM(11 Sep 2005 to 13 Sep 2005) Sun Sxtil Ura

        Creative license, spontaneity, improvisation,  and discovery are stimulated now. This is a good time for any activity that requires you to experiment and think outside the box. Your freedom to express yourself in your own way is quite important to you at the moment.


13 Sep 2005      4 AM(12 Sep 2005 to 14 Sep 2005) Merc Sqr Jup

        Community or world events, long-range trends, or a desire for wider contact with the world occupies your mind right now. You may feel the urge to make travel plans, to attend a cross-cultural event, or simply to move around more. It may be harder for you to sit still for a long period, or engage in tedious or exacting mental work. You could overlook critical details. Break up your day with humorous interludes, a long distance phone call, or by emailing your faraway friends.


15 Sep 2005      2 AM(14 Sep 2005 to 16 Sep 2005) Merc Qucnx Merc

        Intellectual bantering or a difference of opinion may create some friction now, but you can gain objectivity and another way of seeing something. You may be restless, curious, and in need of intellectual stimulation, or feel a bit overstimulated and nervous. You don't need caffeine! Slow down a little, especially in traffic.


15 Sep 2005      2 AM(14 Sep 2005 to 16 Sep 2005) Merc Sxtil Ura

        You have a touch of creative genius in your thinking today. Your ability to see things in a new light, to experiment and think outside the box, can deliver up some surprising insights. You may be moved by an out-of-the-blue impulse to call or contact someone, to vary your usual route or to do things in a different order than you normally would. Doing small things like this keeps you awake and interested.


16 Sep 2005          (15 Sep 2005 to 14 Oct 2005) Ven 3rd H.

        Courteous and friendly relations with neighbors and others in your immediate environment typify this time cycle. It's a time of peacemaking and forming bridges of good will and cooperation with people you meet on a daily or casual basis. Sending notes of appreciation and similar loving gestures lighten the atmosphere. Take time to do little favors, exchange pleasantries, notice the flowers in your neighbor's garden, and comment on the positive things you see around you. Focus on humor and lighthearted conversation.


16 Sep 2005     10 AM(15 Sep 2005 to 17 Sep 2005) Sun Sxtil Mars

        Courage, confidence, and the will to triumph energize you. You are able to move your objectives forward and to get a lot done now, without stressing or going into overdrive. Your positive conviction seems to move obstacles out of your way. You flow around obstructions rather than confront them, which is apt to be a successful strategy at this time.


17 Sep 2005      1 AM(16 Sep 2005 to 18 Sep 2005) Merc Sxtil Mars

        You speak clearly, directly, and honestly about what you want now, and your lack of ambiguity is compelling. If you need to convince or persuade another, this is the time to do it. You are sharp in negotiations, and respond quickly and intelligently, but you may unwittingly fail to listen, empathize, or receive the other person's side of things.


18 Sep 2005      4 AM(17 Sep 2005 to 19 Sep 2005) Ven Qucnx MC

        You enjoy playing the role of hostess or host, displaying your good taste, affection, and appreciation for the finer things. Lightness, humor, and good times shared is the focus for you now. Go to the extra trouble to decorate, embellish, bring out your best china, and show people a good time. Opportunities to come together for a celebration, while not entirely trouble free, will be beneficial overall.


19 Sep 2005      5 AM(18 Sep 2005 to 20 Sep 2005) Ven Conj Sat

        You are attracted to people with maturity, worldly wisdom, and a solid sense of values (perhaps an advisor, elder, or teacher), and are disinclined to frivolous activities or wasting your time. In fact you may be pleased and happy to be alone or perhaps with just one other person that you know well. On the other hand, you may feel quite cool or withdrawn in a crowd. You are also restrained and careful about spending money at this point, and that's as it should be. It is a good time to reflect, set priorities, enjoy simple pleasures, and appreciate quality time with yourself or with your chosen companion.


19 Sep 2005          (9 Sep 2005 to 30 Sep 2005) Sat Sxtil MC

         The need to prove yourself, to be practical and effective, and solidly establish yourself as a person of substance colors your actions and choices now. This can be a highly productive period in terms of tangible accomplishment and/or acquiring necessary training and expertise in order to do work that is meaningful to you. You are willing to discipline yourself and to concentrate your energy and attention on your goals. What others expect, approve of, or value may have a strong influence on you now, so that you aren't acting as a free agent or making your choices based solely on what feels natural or right to you as an individual. Concerns for your place in your community, or meeting societal, familial, or parental standards, impress you as important now.

         The urge to organize, put in order, control, manage, pin down, or clarify - especially regarding your long-term security interests - is strong now.

Positive Potentials:

         Realism, practicality, and doing the necessary, nitty-gritty work. Solid, sustained, determined efforts. Reliability and maturity impresses those in authority. Handling practical affairs wisely.

Negative Potentials:

         Tendencies toward rigidity, excessive caution or conservatism, and clinging to certainty and security are amplified. However, these should not be problems unless you are already overbalanced in that direction.

Remedies and Suggestions:

         Work to solidify your position, make steady progress in your goals, or to straighten out your practical affairs. However, don't impose your needs and standards on others, especially your peers.


19 Sep 2005      4 PM(18 Sep 2005 to 20 Sep 2005) Ven Sxtil Asc

        A pleasant, affectionate, relaxed, or courteous attitude eases your interactions now, and may open doors or help lighten troubled situations that you've been working with lately.

        You can attract what you want and need, rather than pursue it forcefully or do it all yourself. This is an excellent time to go out on a date or ask someone for a favor, because you make a decidedly positive impression at the moment.


19 Sep 2005      5 PM(18 Sep 2005 to 20 Sep 2005) Ven Sqr Sun

        Your own values or way of expressing love and affection may differ from someone you encounter now, but because you are willing to please and smooth over differences, all is apt to turn out well. At the very least, you'll learn something about a friend or lover that helps you understand them. In fact, your differences may be appealing. As long as egos don't interfere, love will reign!


19 Sep 2005      5 PM(18 Sep 2005 to 20 Sep 2005) Ven Sqr Ven

        Differences in tastes, style, or aesthetic preferences may arise in a close relationship, but you can compromise and satisfy both people with relative ease. In fact your differences may be very stimulating and attractive to you, especially if the connection is a romantic one. Love is definitely in the air! You may also want to enhance or change your wardrobe, furnishings, or surroundings to make them more comfortable and appealing. Probably you'll want to indulge yourself in some way and may avoid getting down to work.


23 Sep 2005          (22 Sep 2005 to 12 Oct 2005) Merc 2nd H.

        Discussions focused on finances and practical affairs are fruitful now. This is a good time to get a clear picture of what is happening for you on a basic material level, and to be objective about how you are spending money, your financial goals, and so on. Consulting a professional on these issues would be useful. Reading articles and books, or having conversations with friends and acquaintances on money issues in order to gather information, is also favored.


24 Sep 2005      7 PM(24 Sep 2005 to 25 Sep 2005) Merc Trine MC

        Clarity, objectivity, and a smooth flow of communication makes this an excellent time to reach a decision and/or tell others of a decision you've come to. Ideas come flooding in now, too, and you're able to assimilate all kinds of new information. All learning, teaching, or intellectual activities are favored.


24 Sep 2005          (29 Aug 2005 to 9 Nov 2005) Ura Sqr MC

        The winds of change are blowing through your world! There can be unsettling developments at work or at home, fueled at least in part by your own compelling need for more personal freedom, honesty, and aliveness. You may revolt against your old roles and identity, or stifling patterns in your life that consistently restrict you. You feel others' expectations of you to be odious and you're less willing to accommodate, cooperate, or go along with business as usual. On the other hand, you may be very attached to your professional or domestic role in which case the changes will seem to be coming at you due to shifting circumstances, reversals, and sudden unexpected events that require you to let go and adjust. A change in residence, professional status, or life direction can offer a fresh start and more room to reinvent and express your self.

Positive Potentials:

        More freedom in both public and personal arenas. Expressing your individuality, eccentricity, or personal creative bent more openly. Liberation from old lifeless patterns and circumstances.

Negative Potentials:

        Disruptions, upsets, sudden change of direction or plans due to "circumstances beyond your control".

Remedies and Suggestions:

        It is easy to go to extremes during this period - either to impatiently demand radical change due to longstanding dissatisfaction, or to fearfully hold your ground and insist that everything continues as it was. The natural flow of things at this time is to move toward more autonomy, independence, and newness, so resistance is unlikely to go well. However, beware of rebelling for its own sake, with no positive alternative in mind. Try making modifications, varying your methods, or incorporating some new elements before you take radical or irreversible steps such as quitting your day job entirely or completely severing ties to people from your past.


25 Sep 2005      8 PM(24 Sep 2005 to 26 Sep 2005) Ven Qucnx Jup

        You may find it hard to stay on task today or to do any unpleasant, demanding work. Tendencies toward excess extravagance, self-indulgence or laziness are amplified now. On the plus side, you can enjoy yourself quite a lot, especially around people. You're generous, playful, good-humored - even lucky!


25 Sep 2005      8 PM(25 Sep 2005 to 26 Sep 2005) Merc Trine Sun

        Clear thinking and an easy flow of communication make this a good day to present your ideas in writing or in person to take an exam, to learn something new, to initiate discussions or conduct a meeting. The pace of life is quickened and everyday business flows smoothly, especially casual interactions.


25 Sep 2005      9 PM(25 Sep 2005 to 26 Sep 2005) Merc Trine Ven

        Communicating affection and appreciation come easily to you today. You speak personably and pleasantly now, making even casual interactions sweet. By overlooking superficial differences and focusing on harmonizing and understanding, you build bridges between yourself and others or between two parties who have been at odds. This is also a wonderful time to send flowers, write a love letter, or to discuss matters of aesthetics and personal style. Heavy topics will wait for another day.


27 Sep 2005      1 PM(26 Sep 2005 to 28 Sep 2005) Merc Sxtil Moon

        Conversations with women, with family, and with people you are especially close to or have a long history with are going well now. By listening as well as sharing your own experiences and feelings, you deepen your rapport and connection. Telling stories, reminiscing, and discussing what is in your soul can be very rewarding. You are likely not only to hear, but to understand. Personal letter writing or journaling would also be fruitful activities.


28 Sep 2005          (27 Sep 2005 to 28 Oct 2005) Sun 2nd H.

        The focus is on finances, getting your money's worth, prioritizing, choosing to spend time and money on those things you prize most. You also want to be paid what you are worth! Poor financial moves may catch up with you now, but at least you can get clear on what you need to do to straighten things out.


28 Sep 2005          (23 Sep 2005 to 3 Oct 2005) Jup Sxtil Plu

        During this time you have the opportunity to connect with people and/or ideas that can vastly improve your life or significantly further your cause. Sharing information and power, being exposed to transformational teaching or healing methods, or bringing a powerful message to others is emphasized.

        Working in harmony within a group, an organization, or for the benefit or your community is favored now. You can make meaningful changes or contributions that are deeply satisfying.

        Educational, professional, spiritual or philosophical growth and development are featured.

Positive Potentials:

        Remarkable improvement, growth, and positive developments in all arenas. Turning around a difficult, thorny problem through faith and positive action. Important alliances with wise, experienced, or powerful people.

Negative Potentials:

        You may have to deal with an old, outstanding legal or personal problem, but with good will and positive action these can be favorably resolved.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Take advantage of the opportunities to educate yourself, meet people outside of your usual social circle or little world, and ask for the help you need. Be willing to offer something and meet others halfway, and you'll be amply rewarded.


29 Sep 2005      1 AM(28 Sep 2005 to 30 Sep 2005) Ven Sqr Merc

        It's time for a love talk! Any disagreements or problems you encounter can be more easily worked through now, and you're able to articulate your feelings and wishes in a way others can hear. You seek closeness through verbal exchange, a meeting of heart and mind. Style is important to you now as well, and this is a fine time to consult a beauty expert, get a haircut, choose clothing or make other aesthetic decisions.


29 Sep 2005      1 AM(28 Sep 2005 to 30 Sep 2005) Ven Trine Ura

        This is an excellent time to meet new people, to try on a more daring, updated, or unconventional style, and to break out of your usual social circle. Improvise, be spontaneous, and don't be afraid to show your eccentricities or unusual taste. You can wake up and reinvigorate a love relationship that's become too predictable or stale. Loosen up and remember what it's like to play!


30 Sep 2005     12 AM(29 Sep 2005 to 1 Oct 2005) Merc Trine Jup

        Your mind is positive and you are thinking in broader terms at the moment. Your intuition and sense of future trends is keen. Commercial ventures and transactions, communicating to a wider audience, teaching or learning, and making sound decisions based on seeing the bigger picture is the focus now. Send and receive inspiring messages.


30 Sep 2005      3 PM(29 Sep 2005 to 1 Oct 2005) Sun Trine MC

        The force is with you, go for your personal best! Father figures or those in a position to help you further your aims are encouraging and receptive to what you propose. Back up your words with action, follow through with a solid effort, and expect success. This is an ideal time to express what you really want, to show some style, and let the world know who you are.


1 Oct 2005      12 PM(23 Sep 2005 to 9 Oct 2005) mars oppos mars

        Your energies run hot and you could risk driving yourself too hard and burning yourself and others with too much passion or anger. Minor annoyances may feel like major aggravations; unexpressed frustration or hostility may erupt into the open; pushing, hurrying, or forcing things can lead to trouble. Slow down and cool down on every level: take the pedal off the metal, consciously slow your movements, drink or immerse yourself in cool water, avoid people and situations you know have the potential to rouse your ire.  Observe how touchy and aggressive your ego tends to be right now, as if every thing that doesn't go your way is a personal affront, and have a good laugh at yourself !


1 Oct 2005      12 PM(26 Sep 2005 to 7 Oct 2005) mars sqr plu

        A hidden or mostly unconscious need to control or gain power is at play within and around you now. If you violate others' rights or territory in pursuit of your own agenda, a battle of wills (subtle or overt) is likely. There is a destructive element operating as well, which can be turned to good ends in that you can work to "destroy" or eliminate something, or completely purge or overhaul something in your life. You tend to drive yourself quite hard, so beware of over-straining or forcing yourself past your limits.


2 Oct 2005       5 AM(1 Oct 2005 to 3 Oct 2005) Merc Trine Merc

        Today, expect a free flow of ideas, stimulating conversations, and making the right connections at the right time. All intellectual activities are favored now, including writing, speaking, making presentations, getting your ideas across, reading, learning, and conducting business. You enjoy being a messenger, a conduit for information in some manner or form. Casual contacts go well.


2 Oct 2005       6 AM(1 Oct 2005 to 3 Oct 2005) Merc Sqr Ura

        Making or hearing comments that provoke controversy, feeling unusually impatient with others' slowness, impulsive movements or a sudden change of direction can challenge you today. Beware of acting out of nervous haste or tactlessly blurting something out that you can't take back. Instead, consciously slow yourself down, breathe deep into your middle, and relax the tension in your head or jaws - then proceed.


2 Oct 2005       7 AM(1 Oct 2005 to 3 Oct 2005) Ven Conj Mars

        Selfish or competitive impulses are softened by a desire for harmony, relatedness, and connection. Activities that combine power or passion with grace are favored now, as in dancing, playing music, making art or love, or perhaps some kinds of sports. Doing something vigorous with a lover or friends, rather than just talking or hanging out, would be ideal. Affectionate feelings can intensify into an adoring romance.


2 Oct 2005      10 AM(1 Oct 2005 to 3 Oct 2005) Sun Trine Sun

        This is time of flow and ease of expression. You feel energetically supported and your offerings to the world are welcomed. Relationships with men are highlighted and are apt to be mutually beneficial.


2 Oct 2005      11 AM(1 Oct 2005 to 3 Oct 2005) Ven Sqr Plu

        Your interactions may bring up surprisingly intense feelings, pleasant or not. Irrational attractions and desires, jealousies, or resentments may surface. You may run into an ex (friend, in-law, lover) or someone or something that reminds you of an old love or pain: a chance to put it to rest. You can also pour your heart into a creative project you're in the midst of, using your intensified emotions to create something new.


2 Oct 2005      11 AM(1 Oct 2005 to 3 Oct 2005) Sun Trine Ven

        Pleasantness and a personal touch ease all situations you find yourself in. You're in a lighthearted mood and prefer being around people you enjoy and can relax with, and unless your work pleases you, you probably won't want to do it. The sweet and frivolous side of life, or doing something just for pleasure, is emphasized now.


2 Oct 2005           (21 Sep 2005 to 15 Oct 2005) Sat Sqr Sat

        This is a crucial period of testing, which challenges your commitment to the life you have chosen thus far. A failure, a loss of status, a personal disappointment, or some other disheartening event may usher in this period of reexamination. You are more aware than ever of your weaknesses and vulnerabilities, and insecurity, fear, and self-doubt may be unwelcome companions now. Basically you are thrown back on your inner resolve to continue on the path you've been on. Areas that are shaky and less than solid will need to be built up or eliminated altogether. Discern what is worth holding on to or working to strengthen, and what must be shed. If you stubbornly resist letting go of what isn't really essential to living out your authentic life, you set yourself up for even greater loss later on.

Positive Potentials:

        Necessary endings, losses, or closure in order to concentrate on what is true and most important to your development. Making hard choices that leave you feeling strengthened. Recognizing the depth of your commitment to your current path. Facing weaknesses in order to heal them and build strength.

Negative Potentials:

        A severe crisis of confidence reaping the results of past dishonesty (with self or others), unconscious behavior, compromises, or shortcuts.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Stand still and take stock. Do not further weaken yourself by resenting circumstances or blaming others if you find yourself standing in a place that is not to your liking. Embracing self-responsibility and your power to choose differently now gives you strength. Be compassionate toward yourself, and your places of weakness and imperfection. Join deep and rigorous self-honesty with humor and tenderness toward yourself.

        Get help from a counselor, healer, or elder for the places you are really stuck or blocked. Employ simple methods, such as slow, conscious breathing, to bring yourself into present-time clarity.


4 Oct 2005       3 PM(4 Oct 2005 to 5 Oct 2005) Merc Sxtil Plu

        You are interested in complexity, depth, the mysterious, the hidden, or the primitive, whether you are looking for the secrets of lost civilizations or probing a thorny psychological problem. What you read, watch, think about or discuss is apt to contain these elements. You can also be quite a convincing speaker but beware of overstating your case. Your words are potent now.


5 Oct 2005       8 AM(4 Oct 2005 to 6 Oct 2005) Sun Sxtil Moon

        You enjoy being around both men and women at this time and, in fact, you need to be with others, especially those you know pretty well and trust. Having a sense of familiarity and comfort in your surroundings and interactions boosts your confidence. Everyday relationships are supportive and warm at the moment.


5 Oct 2005       9 PM(5 Oct 2005 to 6 Oct 2005) Merc Conj Nep

        You may notice that your mind is a bit fuzzy at the moment, or that you just can't concentrate on practical matters and immediate tasks. Perhaps you need a mental vacation, like reading a book that captures your imagination, going to see a movie, as simply relaxing your mental focus and enjoying the magic of the birds singing outside your window. Minor miscommunications or misunderstandings can arise now. Certainly it is not the best day to negotiate a business transaction or any other activity that requires sharp, decisive discrimination. You might miss important pieces, so save such activities for another day.


7 Oct 2005           (2 Oct 2005 to 12 Oct 2005) Jup Conj Nep

        Expanded feelings of hope and faith, positive expectation and belief color this time period for you. You take a vacation from realism, skepticism, and conservatism, and indulge in far reaching fantasies and dreams, philosophical speculations, or idealistic wishes. You may long to travel to an exotic or romantic place, and if you have the means, this would be a fine time to do so. You also want to make ordinary life more ideal or magical. You may be distracted from your usual tasks, less attentive to work that involves detail or routine, more restless and discontented with the limits in your life.

        A spirit of great altruism and sympathy for the welfare of others may visit you also, inspiring you to give generously and participate more widely in the world around you.

Positive Potentials:

        Positive hopes and faith lead to positive expectations. Greater trust in and sense of connection to the larger reality. Concern for the greater good and the care and protection of those near and far. Dreaming big dreams. Visiting a magical place.

Negative Potentials:

        Grandiosity and inflated expectations may lead you to gamble or take financial risks based on overly optimistic assumptions. Ungrounded, unrealistic, and naive idealism.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Take a vacation from your usual concerns, worries, and efforts. Read books that carry you away, that inspire you to live more hopefully, that expand your vision and sense of what is possible. Let your imagination explore possibilities. Let yourself dream big dreams for you and the world.

        However, beware of trusting too much in luck or providence. If you want to live out your dreams then be willing to actualize them by taking realistic steps, rather than hoping they will fall into your lap. Or, you can first enjoy the pleasure and uplifting feelings you get simply by dreaming.


9 Oct 2005      12 PM(8 Oct 2005 to 10 Oct 2005) Sun Trine Jup

        Your best self shines forth and you radiate an expectation of success, which can open many doors for you at this time. You are drawn to the people, places, ideas, or information that can profit you the most, and whatever comes to you now is apt to be of benefit. Extending yourself, widening your comfort zone, reaching out, and acting on your intuition enables you to make the most of this fortuitous moment.


9 Oct 2005           (27 Sep 2005 to 26 Oct 2005) Sat Oppos Sun

        This is a low cycle as far as vitality, creative energy, and inspiration are concerned. You may feel dried up, used up, and tired of it all. You may be questioning the worth or validity of what you have been doing, or come up against some serious adversaries who seem intent on thwarting you. Responsibility, duty, obligation, or past commitments rule your life now, and a parent may become the source of considerable burdens during this period. Whatever your age, you may be feeling old, tired, or worn from the stresses in your life. This is a time to conserve your energy, eliminate all unnecessary activity, and concentrate on the immediate tasks at hand. In some significant way, this is "karmic pay back time". If you have been living honorably and with integrity, this may well be a lean or pressured time but you'll most likely emerge strong and undamaged. If you have been making poor choices, the results of those choices will manifest during this cycle.

Positive Potentials:

        Pruning, eliminating, simplifying, and allowing whatever is passing away at this time to go. Concentrating on essentials, reducing extraneous actions.

Negative Potentials:

        Self-pity, self-isolation, depression.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Humble yourself enough to share your struggle with caring others, and accept the help they offer you. Do not blame yourself excessively for whatever is occurring, but take responsibility for your actions and choices, and do what you can to make amends if you have transgressed.

        Recognize that this ebb in your energy and/or confidence is part of a natural cycle, and expect your spirits to return. Do not make drastic decisions based on how you are feeling now.


10 Oct 2005          (27 Sep 2005 to 26 Oct 2005) Sat Oppos Ven

        This is a time of withdrawal, seclusion, social isolation, aloneness, or the ending of an important relationship in your life. You are reevaluating the role of other people in your life, reassessing your loyalties and allegiances. You may feel overworked and under appreciated, critical of the people around you, lonely while at the same time wishing for more solitude and time for yourself. You will also be feeling and seeing the effects of your own behavior towards other people - your lovingness or lack of it. If you have been neglecting your loved ones, or your personal and emotional needs, you will begin to notice the barrenness, the coolness, the emptiness, the lovelessness. It is time for some soul-searching reflection on the role of Eros in your life. On another level, money and financial concerns may press heavily upon you, particularly if you have been lax or overly expansive in your spending as of late. This is a period of frugality. However, unless you have been exceptionally foolish or dishonest in your financial affairs, your fears of "losing it all" are most likely only that - fears, not reality.

Positive Potentials:

        Eliminating waste, excesses, whatever is nonessential to your life. A greater appreciation for simplicity with a focus on quality rather than quantity. Releasing self-deception and illusions regarding others, particularly intimate others.

Negative Potentials:

        Sadness, self-pity, self-isolation, rejection of others based on overly strict and unforgiving standards, miserliness. Joylessness.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Do not force yourself into sociability you do not feel in an effort to avoid the discomfort and loneliness you may be experiencing. Relationships formed at this time tend to have a needy or a profoundly heavy quality attached to them, and probably won't alleviate your inner yearning.

        Quiet creative work in solitude can be soothing, as can making whatever circumstances you may find yourself in more beautiful. Take time to do things for yourself that you have neglected and may even feel very awkward at - cooking yourself a wonderful meal, going for a pleasure trip all by yourself.

        Make amends to the people in your life you have neglected or been unloving towards.


12 Oct 2005          (11 Oct 2005 to 6 Nov 2005) Merc 3rd H.

        You crave communication and mental stimulation during this period, and you're apt to get plenty of it now, including casual conversation, local "news" and/or gossip, and a variety of interesting tidbits, ideas, and information. Sorting through it all, and not getting too sidetracked by random, unrelated data, may challenge you. You're an idea gatherer and a messenger or conduit for information during this cycle. This is an excellent time to write, as well, especially articles or letters.


13 Oct 2005      5 AM(12 Oct 2005 to 14 Oct 2005) Sun Trine Merc

        A free flow of ideas, lively interactions, and a positive environment for learning and communication is featured. This is a good time to meet people for business or commercial purposes, to make connections via speaking or writing, and to use your mind. Clarity of thought and of expression eases your way now. This is an excellent time to take a test or make an important phone call or meeting.


13 Oct 2005      5 AM(12 Oct 2005 to 14 Oct 2005) Sun Sqr Ura

        Minor shake-ups, mishaps, or aberrations from your normal routine require you to be on your toes, or you could feel restless and create a stir yourself. You're less compliant, obedient, and patient with arbitrary rules. If you can, break your usual patterns in small ways, like dressing less formally or showing some eccentricity.


13 Oct 2005      3 PM(12 Oct 2005 to 14 Oct 2005) Merc Qucnx MC

        Intelligently organizing, planning, or taking care of correspondence would be wise now. The more uncluttered and systematic you are, the more good ideas, decisions, and directions can emerge. Speaking with a parent or elder and getting their perspective, or working something through with them, is also useful now.


14 Oct 2005     10 AM(13 Oct 2005 to 15 Oct 2005) Merc Conj Sat

        You have little tolerance for distractions or wasting time right now. You may seem rather humorless, not communicative, or even downright unfriendly. You are thinking about practical concerns and necessities, essentials, and the bottom line, or wrangling with problems that you don't want to discuss openly. An interaction or conversation you have today may shed light on a problem you are facing and show you some weakness that needs to be addressed. In any case, this is not a moment for fun and sport, but for focused attention and for cool, detached objectivity.


14 Oct 2005      7 PM(14 Oct 2005 to 15 Oct 2005) Merc Sxtil Asc

        Communication, learning, or being a messenger or conduit for information is favored now. You express yourself clearly and intelligently, getting your views across with ease. Friendly or casual encounters can lead you to information you can benefit from right now. You may want to visit a book store, or make some phone calls you've been putting off.


14 Oct 2005      8 PM(14 Oct 2005 to 15 Oct 2005) Merc Sqr Sun

        Opening up lines of communication, actively initiating discussions, and conducting business over the telephone, by email, or through the written word is the theme of the day. You are clear and factual, and probably more chatty than usual. You may be inundated with phone calls or be running around a lot as well. It may be hard for you to sit still. A busy day!


14 Oct 2005      8 PM(14 Oct 2005 to 15 Oct 2005) Merc Sqr Ven

        Your interactions and conversations are on the light side now, with an emphasis on affection, humor, understanding, and pleasantries. This is not the best time to enter into any important negotiations, however, because although the tone will be friendly, you are inclined to be a bit too conciliatory or be swayed by charm. It is a much better time to go shopping!


14 Oct 2005      8 PM(13 Oct 2005 to 15 Oct 2005) Ven Oppos MC

        You enjoy playing the role of hostess or host, displaying your good taste, affection, and appreciation for the finer things. Lightness, humor, and good times shared is the focus for you now. Go to the extra trouble to decorate, embellish, bring out your best china, and show people a good time. Opportunities to come together for a celebration, while not entirely trouble free, will be beneficial overall.


14 Oct 2005          (13 Oct 2005 to 15 Nov 2005) Ven 4th H.

        Your home can be a source of great pleasure, comfort, and enjoyment now, and you may undertake a decorating, landscaping, or beautification project to enhance it. Strenuous work is not what you want to be doing here, however, because it's ease and delight that you're looking for. Intimate and happy gatherings with family and close friends are favored and domestic relationships in general are easier and friendlier. This would be an ideal time for a family reunion.


16 Oct 2005     11 AM(15 Oct 2005 to 17 Oct 2005) Ven Sqr Asc

        A strong need for harmony, affection, approval or belongingness colors your attitude and decisions now. Overall this is apt to bring ease and engender positive feelings in your interactions and personal relationships, but in a situation in which you need to move forcefully on your own behalf it could work against you. Social engagements, pleasure outings, and even shopping are favored.


16 Oct 2005     12 PM(15 Oct 2005 to 17 Oct 2005) Ven Sxtil Ven

        Cooperation, affection, and sweet feelings color this moment. All friendships and intimate or personal interactions are highly favored. Certainly you won't want to be alone today, nor need you be. Any overtures you make will be gladly received. Love is flowing! You may feel a bit lazy and pleasantly indulgent as well.


16 Oct 2005     12 PM(15 Oct 2005 to 17 Oct 2005) Ven Sxtil Sun

        Being with people and enjoying good times (especially with beautiful, charming, lighthearted people) is really what you want now. You're in a friendly and cooperative mood which brings ease to your interactions and an overall sense of harmony to your day. Because you are open to love and friendly gestures, you will attract loving people into your experience.


17 Oct 2005      2 AM(16 Oct 2005 to 18 Oct 2005) Sun Sxtil Plu

        Unusual creative power is available to you today. An intensity of focus that borders on the extreme allows you to accomplish a great deal now. You also gain deeper insights and awareness about something which helps you understand and work with it better. You may want to get rid of something that's outlived its function because it is easier to part with things now than it might be on another day.


19 Oct 2005      1 AM(18 Oct 2005 to 20 Oct 2005) Sun Conj Nep

        Your imagination and inner yearnings are stimulated and you may find yourself drifting away from the immediate here and now. This isn't the best day to make critical decisions because you may be seeing your options through a subtle haze of hopeful wishing or idealism. Go to see a play or an art exhibit or do something purely for the spiritual reward, some random act of kindness.


19 Oct 2005      4 AM(18 Oct 2005 to 20 Oct 2005) Ven Conj Moon

        Loving affection, tenderness, and a strong appreciation for what's familiar color this day. Your family, children, pets, home, or long time friends are sources of happiness for you, and you'll want to bathe them in love. Indulgence, pampering, and pleasuring - for yourself as well as others - feels like a necessity now. Relationships with women are favored.


19 Oct 2005      6 PM(19 Oct 2005 to 20 Oct 2005) Merc Qucnx Jup

        Community or world events, long-range trends, or a desire for wider contact with the world occupies your mind right now. You may feel the urge to make travel plans, to attend a cross-cultural event, or simply to move around more. It may be harder for you to sit still for a long period, or engage in tedious or exacting mental work. You could overlook critical details. Break up your day with humorous interludes, a long distance phone call, or by emailing your faraway friends.


22 Oct 2005      6 AM(18 Oct 2005 to 25 Oct 2005) Mars Sxtil Ura

        You crave challenge, action, something fresh and exciting, and while you won't instigate a fight, you won't back away from one either.

        The thrill-seeker or adventurer in you comes out. You have bursts of energy and need to do something that is, for you, original and daring.


22 Oct 2005      7 AM(18 Oct 2005 to 25 Oct 2005) Mars Sqr Merc

        You are mentally sharp and quick at this time but may be abrupt, impatient, and cutting with your words as well. Aggression or hurry can lead to cuts and scrapes, needless arguments, fender benders, or headaches. Consciously slow your movements and breathing down just a bit and give yourself plenty of time to get where you're going, or work off steam by running or taking a brisk walk.


22 Oct 2005      9 AM(21 Oct 2005 to 23 Oct 2005) Merc Sqr Merc

        Intellectual bantering or a difference of opinion may create some friction now, but you can gain objectivity and another way of seeing something. You may be restless, curious, and in need of intellectual stimulation, or feel a bit overstimulated and nervous. You don't need caffeine! Slow down a little, especially in traffic.


22 Oct 2005     10 AM(21 Oct 2005 to 23 Oct 2005) Merc Trine Ura

        You have a touch of creative genius in your thinking today. Your ability to see things in a new light, to experiment and think outside the box, can deliver up some surprising insights. You may be moved by an out-of-the-blue impulse to call or contact someone, to vary your usual route or to do things in a different order than you normally would. Doing small things like this keeps you awake and interested.


23 Oct 2005     12 AM(22 Oct 2005 to 24 Oct 2005) Ven Oppos Jup

        You may find it hard to stay on task today or to do any unpleasant, demanding work. Tendencies toward excess extravagance, self-indulgence or laziness are amplified now. On the plus side, you can enjoy yourself quite a lot, especially around people. You're generous, playful, good-humored - even lucky!


25 Oct 2005      4 AM(24 Oct 2005 to 26 Oct 2005) Merc Conj Mars

        Honest, forthright discussions and clear powerful decision-making characterize this time. You may become impatient with another's vagueness or waffling, and move to act on your own. Beware of sharp words said in haste, aggressive driving, or wasting your energy in needless arguments. Certainly you can hold your own in any discussion or negotiation, but you may come on too strong.


25 Oct 2005      8 AM(24 Oct 2005 to 26 Oct 2005) Merc Sqr Plu

        Your conversations and interactions take on an intensity you normally wouldn't expect from casual encounters. You or another person may reveal something very personal and private, or bring up deep topics that are rarely discussed. Very strong views, bordering on the fanatical, or thoughts expressed with a lot of emotion may stir up resistance. You can be keenly insightful now, but beware of forcing any kind of agenda onto those around you.


26 Oct 2005     11 AM(25 Oct 2005 to 27 Oct 2005) Ven Sxtil Merc

        Pleasantries, humor, and a light touch sweeten your interactions today. You have an extra measure of tact and charm when talking on the phone, writing letters, or meeting people and you tend to veer away from controversial or unpleasant topics. Your mind may be pleasantly lazy. Light romantic comedies, "fun" fiction, and a break from serious striving appeal to you. Social or cultural events are favored.


26 Oct 2005     12 PM(25 Oct 2005 to 27 Oct 2005) Ven Qucnx Ura

        Some tension between being independent and being close or intimately involved could arise now.  A need for some personal space or an urge to temporarily disengage and go off on your own may be part of this, or a friend or partner may express those needs. A last-minute change of plans, or some other unexpected event, challenges your ability to stay connected; a sudden break or a quick beginning to a new friendship or romance is equally likely.


28 Oct 2005          (27 Oct 2005 to 29 Nov 2005) Sun 3rd H.

        Light social interaction promotes healthy relations with neighbors, those who are a part of your immediate environment, and people you do business with on a regular basis. Give other people a little extra time and attention, notice their efforts on your behalf, and strengthen your connections. Don't overlook the obvious! Sometimes what you need is right in front of your eyes. Pay attention to what's close at hand.


30 Oct 2005      5 AM(29 Oct 2005 to 31 Oct 2005) Ven Trine Plu

        Powerful romantic and creative energies are flowing now. A friendship intensifies through deep sharing, or an erotic interlude evolves from a strongly emotional connection. On another level, you may feel compelled to redesign or remake your wardrobe, surroundings, or a creative project you're in the midst of, to make it more pleasing, rich, and beautiful.


30 Oct 2005      9 PM(29 Oct 2005 to 31 Oct 2005) Sun Qucnx MC

        Relations with men, people in authority, or father figures are featured today. You may be thinking about past successes or failures and how those influence what you aim for now. There may be some friction between your will and someone else's and a need to humble yourself in order for things to proceed. Seek win-win situations.


1 Nov 2005       2 AM(31 Oct 2005 to 2 Nov 2005) Ven Sxtil Nep

        Sympathy for the underdog or a friend in need moves you now. You may be asked to help out someone in confusion or distress, or to show unselfishness to your love partner. Going the extra mile for someone else will make you both happy, and your spiritual support may be more important than the practical assistance you can provide.


1 Nov 2005       2 AM(31 Oct 2005 to 2 Nov 2005) Sun Conj Sat

        Necessity, duty, discipline, and work are the focus for you today, and you're protective of your time and energy. You don't want to scatter your forces or waste efforts, and you may withdraw socially in order to attend to your tasks. Purposeful concerns override other priorities. You may feel rather humorless as well, taking it all a bit too seriously.


1 Nov 2005       2 PM(31 Oct 2005 to 2 Nov 2005) Sun Sxtil Asc

        The force is with you! Your vital energy is flowing well and your confidence is up, so anything you attempt now is likely to succeed. You influence others through personal direct contact, and without much effort. Work with what inspires you, gives you energy, or matters most to you, and expect great results. Express yourself!


1 Nov 2005       3 PM(31 Oct 2005 to 2 Nov 2005) Sun Sqr Sun

        Honoring others' personal style, desires, and objectives while not turning away from your own is a challenge at this time. Significant encounters, while not entirely harmonious, are likely. You can learn from the personal differences and contrasts presented now, and become clearer regarding your own path.


1 Nov 2005       4 PM(31 Oct 2005 to 2 Nov 2005) Sun Sqr Ven

        There may be some stress or lack of flow between you and a loved one or friend. Perhaps one of you is feeling slighted, neglected, or under-appreciated. It would be wise - and probably would require very little on your part - to reach out and make a loving offer at this time. Little snags or bruised feelings should be attended to, so don't allow pride to stand in the way.


6 Nov 2005      10 PM(5 Nov 2005 to 8 Nov 2005) Merc Oppos MC

        Intelligently organizing, planning, or taking care of correspondence would be wise now. The more uncluttered and systematic you are, the more good ideas, decisions, and directions can emerge. Speaking with a parent or elder and getting their perspective, or working something through with them, is also useful now.


6 Nov 2005           (5 Nov 2005 to 19 Nov 2005) Merc 4th H.

        There's apt to be a lot of activity, discussion, comings and goings, and possibly short-term visitors in your home during this cycle. Conversations are apt to turn to the past, and you can get a more objective view of your family history and how others perceived past events. Open family dialogue is favored now. Writing about your feelings and having deep, soulful discussions clarify your understanding.


8 Nov 2005       3 PM(7 Nov 2005 to 9 Nov 2005) Sun Qucnx Jup

        You tend to overreach, overextend, and promise or expect too much, in an overly optimistic assessment of what you can do right now. You see all the possibilities in a positive light, minimizing the potential obstacles. If you commit to anything now, be certain it's something you're truly willing to follow through on. Mutually beneficial contacts are fostered, especially with people at a distance.


9 Nov 2005      12 PM(7 Nov 2005 to 11 Nov 2005) Merc Sqr Asc

        Your curiosity is piqued and you may innocently involve yourself in something that's none of your business. Overhearing conversations or being drawn into gossipy chats purely out of boredom could be a part of this. You need to keep yourself busy, but try not to scatter your energy into too many directions today.


9 Nov 2005       2 PM(7 Nov 2005 to 12 Nov 2005) Merc Sxtil Sun

        Clear thinking and an easy flow of communication make this a good day to present your ideas in writing or in person to take an exam, to learn something new, to initiate discussions or conduct a meeting. The pace of life is quickened and everyday business flows smoothly, especially casual interactions.


9 Nov 2005       3 PM(7 Nov 2005 to 12 Nov 2005) Merc Sxtil Ven

        Communicating affection and appreciation come easily to you today. You speak personably and pleasantly now, making even casual interactions sweet. By overlooking superficial differences and focusing on harmonizing and understanding, you build bridges between yourself and others or between two parties who have been at odds. This is also a wonderful time to send flowers, write a love letter, or to discuss matters of aesthetics and personal style. Heavy topics will wait for another day.


12 Nov 2005      6 AM(11 Nov 2005 to 13 Nov 2005) Sun Sqr Merc

        You are apt to be busy, moving around a lot, and interacting with people on the go. You have quite a bit of mental energy and may be restless if you have to be stationary for too long. Lots of ideas are being batted back and forth. Conflicting views and opinions serve to clarify your own thinking. Seek compromises on inconsequential matters.


12 Nov 2005      6 AM(11 Nov 2005 to 13 Nov 2005) Sun Trine Ura

        Creative license, spontaneity, improvisation,  and discovery are stimulated now. This is a good time for any activity that requires you to experiment and think outside the box. Your freedom to express yourself in your own way is quite important to you at the moment.


13 Nov 2005      5 AM(12 Nov 2005 to 14 Nov 2005) Ven Qucnx MC

        You enjoy playing the role of hostess or host, displaying your good taste, affection, and appreciation for the finer things. Lightness, humor, and good times shared is the focus for you now. Go to the extra trouble to decorate, embellish, bring out your best china, and show people a good time. Opportunities to come together for a celebration, while not entirely trouble free, will be beneficial overall.


13 Nov 2005          (18 Oct 2005 to 30 Nov 2005) Sat 12th H.

        This period is the last phase in a major cycle of your life, a time of completion, finishing, and resolving any unfinished business that may be in your way. The shell of your old life is cracking and you may need more time in solitude or away from your usual activities in order to regroup, digest what has gone before, and heal. You may feel especially vulnerable at this time as your old structures dissolve, but you are truly moving into a new direction and/or a new way of living. Try to learn what you can from the past, retaining the valuable and hard-earned lessons, while leaving old regrets and failures behind.


14 Nov 2005      9 AM(11 Nov 2005 to 17 Nov 2005) Mars Qucnx Moon

        Just DO IT is your motto now. You're in the mood for action and may be especially disgruntled by others' indecisiveness, passivity, or laziness. Beware of emotional outbursts and aggressive maneuvering in traffic or at home, because what you perceive to be slowness on the part of others may just be your own impatience. However, ongoing or chronic tensions that you try to ignore most of the time are likely to erupt now. This isn't the best time to visit the in-laws, or to work out problems with people you're close to. Find positive ways to let off steam. A vigorous tennis match, perhaps?


14 Nov 2005     12 PM(13 Nov 2005 to 15 Nov 2005) Ven Sxtil Sat

        Worries and pressures are eased now, especially if you've been overworking and neglecting your friends. You can lighten up a bit, relax, remember how to smile. You may seek out someone who is a bit older than you or a reliable long time pal to spend some time with. Your money sense is quite sound at the moment so if you're considering a purchase or investment, this is an auspicious day to do that.


15 Nov 2005      2 AM(13 Nov 2005 to 16 Nov 2005) Ven Trine Asc

        A pleasant, affectionate, relaxed, or courteous attitude eases your interactions now, and may open doors or help lighten troubled situations that you've been working with lately.

        You can attract what you want and need, rather than pursue it forcefully or do it all yourself. This is an excellent time to go out on a date or ask someone for a favor, because you make a decidedly positive impression at the moment.


15 Nov 2005      9 PM(14 Nov 2005 to 16 Nov 2005) Sun Conj Mars

        The active, willful, decisive and ambitious part of your nature is energized and you are ready to initiate a new project or take on your challenges with zest. If you tend to be a hothead, lookout! This tendency is certainly exacerbated now. On the other hand, if you tend to hold yourself back or to be passive, you'll feel a vitalizing sense of your power. Strong desires are activated and motivate you to action.


15 Nov 2005          (14 Nov 2005 to 17 Mar 2006) Ven 5th H.

        Spontaneous loving and playfulness make this a happy period, one in which you show your heart and affections freely. All creative arts, sociable games, pleasurable sports or entertainments can also be a source of delight, and you enjoy putting the stamp of your personal style on these activities. Your romantic energies are stimulated and unless other astrological factors inhibit it, this is a wonderful period for amorous alliances.


16 Nov 2005      2 AM(15 Nov 2005 to 17 Nov 2005) Sun Sqr Plu

        An encounter or incident (whether you are a witness or a participant) may force you to look at something you would normally avoid, and you may have unusually strong feelings about it. Buried emotions and old scars may come up. If so, it's an opportunity for you to gain awareness and to relinquish old grudges, and to make peace with yourself. Something that has been hidden or in the dark comes up now.


17 Nov 2005      6 PM(15 Nov 2005 to 19 Nov 2005) Merc Sxtil Ven

This astrological influence (Merc Sxtil Ven) also occurred on 9 Nov 2005 (peak date). Please refer to this date.


17 Nov 2005      7 PM(15 Nov 2005 to 19 Nov 2005) Merc Sxtil Sun

This astrological influence (Merc Sxtil Sun) also occurred on 9 Nov 2005 (peak date). Please refer to this date.


17 Nov 2005      9 PM(15 Nov 2005 to 19 Nov 2005) Merc Sqr Asc

This astrological influence (Merc Sqr Asc) also occurred on 9 Nov 2005 (peak date). Please refer to this date.


19 Nov 2005     11 PM(18 Nov 2005 to 20 Nov 2005) Merc Oppos MC

This astrological influence (Merc Oppos MC) also occurred on 6 Nov 2005 (peak date). Please refer to this date.


19 Nov 2005          (19 Nov 2005 to 19 Dec 2005) Merc 3rd H.

        You crave communication and mental stimulation during this period, and you're apt to get plenty of it now, including casual conversation, local "news" and/or gossip, and a variety of interesting tidbits, ideas, and information. Sorting through it all, and not getting too sidetracked by random, unrelated data, may challenge you. You're an idea gatherer and a messenger or conduit for information during this cycle. This is an excellent time to write, as well, especially articles or letters.


20 Nov 2005          (15 Nov 2005 to 30 Dec 2006) Jup 3rd H.

        Restlessness and curiosity may lead you to explore and appreciate facets of your immediate environment that you have overlooked until now. Those that are nearby and readily available - perhaps a neighbor, a relative, or some friendly person you see occasionally in your everyday life - may offer you a wonderful opportunity or gift. A neighborhood walking group, or some other light social activities that enrich and expand your world, would be beneficial to you.

        Communication of all kinds and travel for educational purposes are favored now.


23 Nov 2005      6 AM(22 Nov 2005 to 24 Nov 2005) Ven Qucnx Jup

        You may find it hard to stay on task today or to do any unpleasant, demanding work. Tendencies toward excess extravagance, self-indulgence or laziness are amplified now. On the plus side, you can enjoy yourself quite a lot, especially around people. You're generous, playful, good-humored - even lucky!


25 Nov 2005     11 AM(20 Nov 2005 to 2 Dec 2005) Mars Sqr Ven

        Powerful desires and amorous feelings are stimulated now perhaps through an enticing interaction or personal encounter. You take the lead in social situations or attract personal attention. Coming on too strong, not picking up on subtle cues, or being inappropriate in a social sense are pitfalls of this time. Strive for a balance between taking the initiative and being sensitive and aware of others' needs and wants. If you are usually shy and unassertive, this is your moment to come out and take a risk even if you're a bit awkward.


25 Nov 2005      1 PM(21 Nov 2005 to 2 Dec 2005) Mars Sqr Sun

        You're apt to be impatient and to use more force than is called for when minor differences arise. You may instigate, aggravate, or stir up trouble either without realizing it (by being too loud, overstepping others' boundaries, or making assumptions), or even on purpose. You could use this abundance of energy for accomplishment, if you so choose. Tone down aggressive tendencies by wearing soft shades of blue, lavender, or pink, and avoid red or orange.


25 Nov 2005      6 PM(21 Nov 2005 to 2 Dec 2005) Mars Trine Asc

        Your vital energy is flowing strongly and you feel pleasantly ambitious and effective. You can rally others to action because of your own enthusiasm and can-do attitude, but you're equally happy acting independently and on your own behalf. Physical, active work or play is favored.


27 Nov 2005     10 PM(26 Nov 2005 to 29 Nov 2005) Ven Oppos Ura

        Some tension between being independent and being close or intimately involved could arise now.  A need for some personal space or an urge to temporarily disengage and go off on your own may be part of this, or a friend or partner may express those needs. A last-minute change of plans, or some other unexpected event, challenges your ability to stay connected; a sudden break or a quick beginning to a new friendship or romance is equally likely.


28 Nov 2005      9 PM(23 Nov 2005 to 27 Dec 2005) Mars Oppos Sat

        At this moment you do not want to waste time or energy and you may be impatient with those situations or people who seem to stand in your way or thwart your will. Resentment and an adversarial attitude may surface, especially towards those who have an easier time of it. You may be tempted to lash out at others who are really not the cause of your frustration but are simply safe targets. Instead of moving with these destructive attitudes, turn to what you can do in your own court. Self-reliance, patience, and even hard or disagreeable work can turn this time into a productive one. Find ways to relieve stress (that don't involve hurting others!)


29 Nov 2005      4 PM(28 Nov 2005 to 30 Nov 2005) Sun Oppos MC

        Relations with men, people in authority, or father figures are featured today. You may be thinking about past successes or failures and how those influence what you aim for now. There may be some friction between your will and someone else's and a need to humble yourself in order for things to proceed. Seek win-win situations.


29 Nov 2005          (28 Nov 2005 to 31 Dec 2005) Sun 4th H.

        Focus on cultivating and nourishing those inner foundations that support your life: home, family, heritage, a peaceful soul. This is a time to collect yourself, and to fill your own well, however you do this. Time-honored traditions or activities from the past that you used to enjoy hold meaning for you now. You may also want to express yourself and your unique tastes and interests in your home.


30 Nov 2005          (30 Nov 2005 to 9 July 2006) Sat 11th H.

        Making a tangible contribution to your community, to an organization or group you belong to, or to society as a whole may be a focus for you now. Certainly you are very aware that you are not  simply an isolated individual, but part of a web of connections and interdependent relationships. Friends may rely on you rather heavily now, or you may feel more pressure to take on social obligations, to cooperate with "the team", and play your part for the greater good. This can be satisfying, if demanding.

        On the other hand, if you've developed few friendships or connections to a community beyond your immediate personal sphere, you may feel the lack of that acutely now. Seeking out others who share your values and interests, or just making human connections wherever you go, can offset the sense of being a faceless number in the system or a cog in a big machine.


1 Dec 2005       9 AM(30 Nov 2005 to 2 Dec 2005) Sun Sqr Asc

        Expect significant encounters, meeting individuals who are or will be important players, at least for the moment. The focus is on relationship, balance, taking each person's tastes, styles, needs, and personal agendas into account. There may be some friction and adjustments needed. It is your choice whether you want to compromise or go solo, but including the other makes for a fuller picture.


1 Dec 2005      10 AM(30 Nov 2005 to 2 Dec 2005) Sun Sxtil Ven

        Pleasantness and a personal touch ease all situations you find yourself in. You're in a lighthearted mood and prefer being around people you enjoy and can relax with, and unless your work pleases you, you probably won't want to do it. The sweet and frivolous side of life, or doing something just for pleasure, is emphasized now.


1 Dec 2005      10 AM(30 Nov 2005 to 2 Dec 2005) Sun Sxtil Sun

        This is time of flow and ease of expression. You feel energetically supported and your offerings to the world are welcomed. Relationships with men are highlighted and are apt to be mutually beneficial.


1 Dec 2005           (26 Nov 2005 to 6 Dec 2005) Jup Qucnx MC

        At this time you can either see  your glass as half empty or half full. You have an urge to expand your range of expression and possibilities, which can either inspire you and uplift you with visions of where you can go - or make you feel restless and discontented with your current situation. This is a very good time to become more creative, to explore a medium of expression you've not worked with before, perhaps, and also to learn as much as possible about new interests or fields that you'd like to expand into. Invest in learning and in your creative talents. Professionally, a promotion or opportunity to do something bigger than what you've done thus far may come along. Look into it carefully, as it may be a bit premature or involve much more than you realize initially.

Positive Potentials:

        Positive developments in professional or important personal goals. Overcoming narrow, limited, overly conservative thinking regarding your potential for success. New ideas and creative energies.

Negative Potentials:

        Increasing or expanding too quickly, or without doing the basic requirements first. Involvement with people who encourage inflated expectations, grandiosity, or a lack of proportion.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Open up to possibilities and real opportunities, with a spirit of play and adventure. Handle frustrations with good humor, broad tolerance, and an expectation that it will all work out well. Maintain a sense of humility and proportion, regardless of how circumstances evolve.


3 Dec 2005       5 AM(1 Dec 2005 to 4 Dec 2005) Ven Sxtil Mars

        Passionate love and powerful creative drives are stimulated now. If you work in any of the arts, this can be an enormously productive time when your energy and sense of beauty and style really come together. Happy collaborative efforts of all kinds are featured. Camaraderie, friendship, and affection, even with people you normally don't socialize with, can be expected. In a romantic relationship, this can be a very special time. If you wish it, make it so!


3 Dec 2005      12 PM(1 Dec 2005 to 5 Dec 2005) Ven Qucnx Plu

        Your interactions may bring up surprisingly intense feelings, pleasant or not. Irrational attractions and desires, jealousies, or resentments may surface. You may run into an ex (friend, in-law, lover) or someone or something that reminds you of an old love or pain: a chance to put it to rest. You can also pour your heart into a creative project you're in the midst of, using your intensified emotions to create something new.


4 Dec 2005       6 AM(3 Dec 2005 to 5 Dec 2005) Sun Conj Moon

        Your inner emotional state of being and your feelings about your life are illuminated now. If all is well with you, especially in your home life, this will be a source of strength and joy. If something is amiss or out of balance, that will be especially evident. Don't avoid or neglect the subtle signals. Give yourself permission to feel, to listen and to "know" with your body and feelings what is so.


4 Dec 2005      12 PM(1 Dec 2005 to 5 Dec 2005) merc sqr plu

        Your conversations and interactions take on an intensity you normally wouldn't expect from casual encounters. You or another person may reveal something very personal and private, or bring up deep topics that are rarely discussed. Very strong views, bordering on the fanatical, or thoughts expressed with a lot of emotion may stir up resistance. You can be keenly insightful now, but beware of forcing any kind of agenda onto those around you.


4 Dec 2005      12 PM(2 Dec 2005 to 5 Dec 2005) merc conj mars

        Honest, forthright discussions and clear powerful decision-making characterize this time. You may become impatient with another's vagueness or waffling, and move to act on your own. Beware of sharp words said in haste, aggressive driving, or wasting your energy in needless arguments. Certainly you can hold your own in any discussion or negotiation, but you may come on too strong.


6 Dec 2005       4 PM(4 Dec 2005 to 8 Dec 2005) Ven Sqr Nep

        Your romantic imagination is stimulated today. You're apt to be attracted to people or things that are soft, beautiful, dreamy, enchanting, inspiring. Colors, styles, music and atmospheres (scents, candles, aesthetic arrangements) strongly influence your mood, so notice what feels good to your soul and make a little magic.


8 Dec 2005           (2 Dec 2005 to 13 Dec 2005) Jup Conj Sat

        At this time the benefits of self-discipline, commitment, hard work, and laying a solid foundation will come into focus. If you have been working steadily for some time, you may be recognized and rewarded for your efforts, or you may now be in a position to greatly expand or take your work out to a broader audience. If you have been holding yourself back, now is the time to overcome old habits and fears, and to let yourself aspire for more.

        Heavy restrictions and the sense of burden or struggle are eased.

Positive Potentials:

        Attaining far-reaching goals through patient application of effort. Educational and professional successes. Planning and organizing with a balance of positive expectation and practical realism. Improved relations with father, elders, or authorities.

Negative Potentials:

        Restless dissatisfaction with the duties, responsibilities, and limitations of your life.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Discontented feelings that arise now may spring from having kept yourself small, limited, and overly attached to security or from an unwillingness to commit yourself to a definite course of action. Try to discern where your need for balance is, and remedy it by choosing a new way.

        Find ways to honor or at least make peace with your history, seeing the positive gift even in the struggle and difficulties. Acknowledge your freedom to choose differently, more wisely and happily, now.


8 Dec 2005       7 AM(7 Dec 2005 to 9 Dec 2005) Sun Oppos Jup

        You tend to overreach, overextend, and promise or expect too much, in an overly optimistic assessment of what you can do right now. You see all the possibilities in a positive light, minimizing the potential obstacles. If you commit to anything now, be certain it's something you're truly willing to follow through on. Mutually beneficial contacts are fostered, especially with people at a distance.


10 Dec 2005          (5 Dec 2005 to 16 Dec 2005) Jup Sxtil Asc

        This is a period of positive social relationships and mutually beneficial contacts with friends, neighbors, and other members of your community. Feelings of trust and goodwill are generated, which can lead to stronger alliances, maybe even an opportunity to go into business or get involved with some group endeavor. You go out of your way to help where you can, and if you need assistance or feel stuck in some ongoing dilemma, help may come through a friend or friendly acquaintance. You may expand your social circle to include more people from different backgrounds, generations, races, or cultures, and this will prove quite beneficial all round. Take all generous offers, and extend some!

Positive Potentials:

        Linking with people in a positive way, growing through interpersonal connections. A healthy attitude toward the world, attracting food fortune.

Negative Potentials:

        None likely.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Get out of habitual routines that keep your world small. Partake of more community events and gatherings. If you show up, magic can happen.


11 Dec 2005          (5 Dec 2005 to 16 Dec 2005) Jup Sqr Sun

        Challenging limitations and stretching beyond them is a focus at this time. You find yourself aiming for greater freedom and self-expression.

Positive Potentials:

        Feeling encouraged and empowered. High vitality. New hope or a new vision for what you can create in the future. Opening new channels for self-expression, personal influence or affluence.

Negative Potentials:

        Restlessness; severe discontent with circumstances that are (or that you presently feel will be) too small or confining, accompanied by a tendency to go way out on a limb financially, professionally, or otherwise. Wanting more, bigger, better and/or living for the future without attending sufficiently to the in-between steps.

        Premature or ill-considered business transactions, or financial decisions. Biting off more than you can chew. Trouble with or dissatisfaction in dealing with the legal system, the government, or bureaucracy. Being overly generous, inflated expectations, wastefulness.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Use tact, discretion, and self-restraint when presenting yourself, your work, or your plans. Your enthusiasm and good intentions can be conveyed without making exaggerated claims or promises. Conversely, don't let greed or wishful thinking obscure your discrimination when presented with an opportunity.

        Put away your credit cards. Try to settle disputes fairly, and out of court. If you're beginning a new sport or outdoor activity, don't try to impress. Use common sense and be moderate. Enjoy yourself on the slopes, on the playing field, or wherever, but don't overdo it.

        Listen to other people and avoid being ostentatious or preachy. Be a learner as well as a teacher.


11 Dec 2005          (5 Dec 2005 to 16 Dec 2005) Jup Sqr Ven

        At this time you will want to relax, to play, to indulge yourself in pleasures, and enjoy "the good life". It's a good time for picnics, celebrations and festivities of all kinds. You are feeling more generous, liberally sharing both your affection and your material well-being with others. You want to make others happy and to be surrounded with warm and positive feelings. If you have been going through a meager time financially, you will momentarily forget that and do something to delight and cheer your heart. There's a joyous sense of abandon regarding spending money on something that makes you feel good. Beauty is quite important to you now as well and you are more open to its beneficial effects upon you and your environment. What may seem like a luxury at other, more practical times now seems like a necessity.

Positive Potentials:

        An appreciative awareness of your blessings and wealth, and the urge to spread good will and happiness, giving and receiving gifts, treats, rewards, pleasures, good humor, light heartedness.

Negative Potentials:

        Disinclination to make effort. Careless, wasteful squandering of resources; overspending, overeating, overdrinking; overindulging. (These are only apt to be problems if you already have a strong leaning towards self-indulgence to begin with.) Craving for more, bigger, better, and discontent with what you have. Issues of needing more freedom in a relationship could cause some friction.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        This is an excellent time to plan a relaxing vacation or a social occasion, to expand socially, to extend invitations to people you enjoy or would enjoy knowing better. Tolerance and fun permeate your atmosphere.

        Play, spend, share, and enjoy but stay within your means. Remember that pleasure and shared joy isn't necessarily dependent upon how much you spend.


11 Dec 2005          (13 Nov 2005 to 7 Jan 2006) Plu Trine Plu

        Having struggled, grown, won, lost, and survived, this is a period of personal resurrection. A renewed sense of purpose, vitality, and creative energy emerges from a deep place within you.

        You have access to latent powers and resources that invigorate you, and now you are concerned with using your gifts to impact the world, i.e. putting them to good use. You can be a force in the world around you.

        This is also a period of letting go of some significant part of your past, a death or surrender to the inexorable process of change.

Positive Potentials:

        Feeling connected to your core self, your inner purpose, and destiny. Renewed zest, passion, and life.

Negative Potentials:

        None likely. However, if you have stifled your inner directives or true callings up until now, you may not feel the true power of this cycle. Still, it's not too late. This can be the time to crack open!

Remedies and Suggestions:

        See yourself as a "power player" - someone with the capacity to make a difference. Focus on your passions, those enduring interests and concerns, and follow them confidently. If not now, when?


11 Dec 2005      9 PM(10 Dec 2005 to 12 Dec 2005) Sun Sxtil Merc

        A free flow of ideas, lively interactions, and a positive environment for learning and communication is featured. This is a good time to meet people for business or commercial purposes, to make connections via speaking or writing, and to use your mind. Clarity of thought and of expression eases your way now. This is an excellent time to take a test or make an important phone call or meeting.


11 Dec 2005      9 PM(10 Dec 2005 to 12 Dec 2005) Sun Qucnx Ura

        Minor shake-ups, mishaps, or aberrations from your normal routine require you to be on your toes, or you could feel restless and create a stir yourself. You're less compliant, obedient, and patient with arbitrary rules. If you can, break your usual patterns in small ways, like dressing less formally or showing some eccentricity.


15 Dec 2005      4 PM(14 Dec 2005 to 16 Dec 2005) Sun Trine Plu

        Unusual creative power is available to you today. An intensity of focus that borders on the extreme allows you to accomplish a great deal now. You also gain deeper insights and awareness about something which helps you understand and work with it better. You may want to get rid of something that's outlived its function because it is easier to part with things now than it might be on another day.


17 Dec 2005      2 PM(16 Dec 2005 to 18 Dec 2005) Sun Sxtil Nep

        Light some candles or put on your favorite music to create a mood and atmosphere where magic can happen. Or engage in activities purely for the inner rewards, like bringing a meal to a friend or some other random act of kindness. This is a day to cultivate spiritual well being and dream peace solutions.


19 Dec 2005      3 AM(18 Dec 2005 to 20 Dec 2005) Merc Oppos MC

        Intelligently organizing, planning, or taking care of correspondence would be wise now. The more uncluttered and systematic you are, the more good ideas, decisions, and directions can emerge. Speaking with a parent or elder and getting their perspective, or working something through with them, is also useful now.


19 Dec 2005          (18 Dec 2005 to 10 Jan 2006) Merc 4th H.

        There's apt to be a lot of activity, discussion, comings and goings, and possibly short-term visitors in your home during this cycle. Conversations are apt to turn to the past, and you can get a more objective view of your family history and how others perceived past events. Open family dialogue is favored now. Writing about your feelings and having deep, soulful discussions clarify your understanding.


20 Dec 2005     11 AM(19 Dec 2005 to 21 Dec 2005) Merc Sxtil Sun

        Clear thinking and an easy flow of communication make this a good day to present your ideas in writing or in person to take an exam, to learn something new, to initiate discussions or conduct a meeting. The pace of life is quickened and everyday business flows smoothly, especially casual interactions.


20 Dec 2005     11 AM(19 Dec 2005 to 21 Dec 2005) Merc Sqr Asc

        Your curiosity is piqued and you may innocently involve yourself in something that's none of your business. Overhearing conversations or being drawn into gossipy chats purely out of boredom could be a part of this. You need to keep yourself busy, but try not to scatter your energy into too many directions today.


20 Dec 2005     12 PM(19 Dec 2005 to 21 Dec 2005) Merc Sxtil Ven

        Communicating affection and appreciation come easily to you today. You speak personably and pleasantly now, making even casual interactions sweet. By overlooking superficial differences and focusing on harmonizing and understanding, you build bridges between yourself and others or between two parties who have been at odds. This is also a wonderful time to send flowers, write a love letter, or to discuss matters of aesthetics and personal style. Heavy topics will wait for another day.


21 Dec 2005      6 AM(23 Nov 2005 to 27 Dec 2005) Mars Oppos Sat

        At this moment you do not want to waste time or energy and you may be impatient with those situations or people who seem to stand in your way or thwart your will. Resentment and an adversarial attitude may surface, especially towards those who have an easier time of it. You may be tempted to lash out at others who are really not the cause of your frustration but are simply safe targets. Instead of moving with these destructive attitudes, turn to what you can do in your own court. Self-reliance, patience, and even hard or disagreeable work can turn this time into a productive one. Find ways to relieve stress (that don't involve hurting others!)


22 Dec 2005      2 PM(21 Dec 2005 to 23 Dec 2005) Merc Conj Moon

        This is a day of intimate conversation, speaking with women or someone you feel especially close to, and sharing on a personal, feeling level. Your mind turns toward the past, either fondly or regretfully. Telling your story or listening to others' stories and reflecting on your personal history is featured. You may want to spend some part of the day journaling or calling old friends. Thoughts about your home arise now, also. You could enjoy skimming magazines to get ideas for your living space, or even consult a feng shui expert.


24 Dec 2005      3 PM(17 Dec 2005 to 29 Dec 2005) Mars Trine Asc

        Your vital energy is flowing strongly and you feel pleasantly ambitious and effective. You can rally others to action because of your own enthusiasm and can-do attitude, but you're equally happy acting independently and on your own behalf. Physical, active work or play is favored.


24 Dec 2005      9 PM(17 Dec 2005 to 29 Dec 2005) Mars Sqr Sun

        You're apt to be impatient and to use more force than is called for when minor differences arise. You may instigate, aggravate, or stir up trouble either without realizing it (by being too loud, overstepping others' boundaries, or making assumptions), or even on purpose. You could use this abundance of energy for accomplishment, if you so choose. Tone down aggressive tendencies by wearing soft shades of blue, lavender, or pink, and avoid red or orange.


24 Dec 2005     11 PM(17 Dec 2005 to 29 Dec 2005) Mars Sqr Ven

        Powerful desires and amorous feelings are stimulated now perhaps through an enticing interaction or personal encounter. You take the lead in social situations or attract personal attention. Coming on too strong, not picking up on subtle cues, or being inappropriate in a social sense are pitfalls of this time. Strive for a balance between taking the initiative and being sensitive and aware of others' needs and wants. If you are usually shy and unassertive, this is your moment to come out and take a risk even if you're a bit awkward.


25 Dec 2005     12 PM(24 Dec 2005 to 26 Dec 2005) Merc Oppos Jup

        Community or world events, long-range trends, or a desire for wider contact with the world occupies your mind right now. You may feel the urge to make travel plans, to attend a cross-cultural event, or simply to move around more. It may be harder for you to sit still for a long period, or engage in tedious or exacting mental work. You could overlook critical details. Break up your day with humorous interludes, a long distance phone call, or by emailing your faraway friends.


28 Dec 2005     12 AM(27 Dec 2005 to 29 Dec 2005) Merc Sxtil Merc

        Today, expect a free flow of ideas, stimulating conversations, and making the right connections at the right time. All intellectual activities are favored now, including writing, speaking, making presentations, getting your ideas across, reading, learning, and conducting business. You enjoy being a messenger, a conduit for information in some manner or form. Casual contacts go well.


28 Dec 2005      1 AM(27 Dec 2005 to 29 Dec 2005) Merc Qucnx Ura

        Making or hearing comments that provoke controversy, feeling unusually impatient with others' slowness, impulsive movements or a sudden change of direction can challenge you today. Beware of acting out of nervous haste or tactlessly blurting something out that you can't take back. Instead, consciously slow yourself down, breathe deep into your middle, and relax the tension in your head or jaws - then proceed.


29 Dec 2005      4 AM(28 Dec 2005 to 30 Dec 2005) Sun Qucnx MC

        Relations with men, people in authority, or father figures are featured today. You may be thinking about past successes or failures and how those influence what you aim for now. There may be some friction between your will and someone else's and a need to humble yourself in order for things to proceed. Seek win-win situations.


30 Dec 2005      8 AM(29 Dec 2005 to 31 Dec 2005) Sun Sxtil Sat

        You have good stamina, concentration, and a focus on taking care of earthly realities, practical necessities, and chores. Inner satisfaction comes from accomplishing your tasks and meeting responsibilities. You may not be especially gregarious or jovial now unless other astrological factors are strong, but you can definitely have a solid sense of achievement at the end of the day.


30 Dec 2005      3 PM(29 Dec 2005 to 31 Dec 2005) Merc Trine Plu

        You are interested in complexity, depth, the mysterious, the hidden, or the primitive, whether you are looking for the secrets of lost civilizations or probing a thorny psychological problem. What you read, watch, think about or discuss is apt to contain these elements. You can also be quite a convincing speaker but beware of overstating your case. Your words are potent now.


30 Dec 2005      9 PM(29 Dec 2005 to 31 Dec 2005) Sun Trine Asc

        The force is with you! Your vital energy is flowing well and your confidence is up, so anything you attempt now is likely to succeed. You influence others through personal direct contact, and without much effort. Work with what inspires you, gives you energy, or matters most to you, and expect great results. Express yourself!


31 Dec 2005          (30 Dec 2005 to 30 Jan 2006) Sun 5th H.

        Play, self-expression, and taking risks to bring out your uniqueness is the focus now. Your creative impulses are bright and strong and you need outlets in which to let them shine. Solo efforts are preferable to collaborative ones, unless you are allowed to direct or lead. You take pride in your creations.


31 Dec 2005     10 PM(31 Dec 2005 to 1 Jan 2006) Merc Sxtil Nep

        Imaginative, artistic, or spiritual topics occupy your mind and conversations today. You may be especially telepathic with the people around you, sensing their thoughts and emotions rather easily. None of this is apt to be terribly distracting and in fact will probably be rather subtle, yet it can add another dimension to your interactions. Listen to your intuition.


4 Jan 2006           (21 Nov 2005 to 26 Jan 2006) Ura Sqr MC

        The winds of change are blowing through your world! There can be unsettling developments at work or at home, fueled at least in part by your own compelling need for more personal freedom, honesty, and aliveness. You may revolt against your old roles and identity, or stifling patterns in your life that consistently restrict you. You feel others' expectations of you to be odious and you're less willing to accommodate, cooperate, or go along with business as usual. On the other hand, you may be very attached to your professional or domestic role in which case the changes will seem to be coming at you due to shifting circumstances, reversals, and sudden unexpected events that require you to let go and adjust. A change in residence, professional status, or life direction can offer a fresh start and more room to reinvent and express your self.

Positive Potentials:

        More freedom in both public and personal arenas. Expressing your individuality, eccentricity, or personal creative bent more openly. Liberation from old lifeless patterns and circumstances.

Negative Potentials:

        Disruptions, upsets, sudden change of direction or plans due to "circumstances beyond your control".

Remedies and Suggestions:

        It is easy to go to extremes during this period - either to impatiently demand radical change due to longstanding dissatisfaction, or to fearfully hold your ground and insist that everything continues as it was. The natural flow of things at this time is to move toward more autonomy, independence, and newness, so resistance is unlikely to go well. However, beware of rebelling for its own sake, with no positive alternative in mind. Try making modifications, varying your methods, or incorporating some new elements before you take radical or irreversible steps such as quitting your day job entirely or completely severing ties to people from your past.


4 Jan 2006           (18 Dec 2005 to 17 Jan 2006) Sat Oppos Ven

        This is a time of withdrawal, seclusion, social isolation, aloneness, or the ending of an important relationship in your life. You are reevaluating the role of other people in your life, reassessing your loyalties and allegiances. You may feel overworked and under appreciated, critical of the people around you, lonely while at the same time wishing for more solitude and time for yourself. You will also be feeling and seeing the effects of your own behavior towards other people - your lovingness or lack of it. If you have been neglecting your loved ones, or your personal and emotional needs, you will begin to notice the barrenness, the coolness, the emptiness, the lovelessness. It is time for some soul-searching reflection on the role of Eros in your life. On another level, money and financial concerns may press heavily upon you, particularly if you have been lax or overly expansive in your spending as of late. This is a period of frugality. However, unless you have been exceptionally foolish or dishonest in your financial affairs, your fears of "losing it all" are most likely only that - fears, not reality.

Positive Potentials:

        Eliminating waste, excesses, whatever is nonessential to your life. A greater appreciation for simplicity with a focus on quality rather than quantity. Releasing self-deception and illusions regarding others, particularly intimate others.

Negative Potentials:

        Sadness, self-pity, self-isolation, rejection of others based on overly strict and unforgiving standards, miserliness. Joylessness.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Do not force yourself into sociability you do not feel in an effort to avoid the discomfort and loneliness you may be experiencing. Relationships formed at this time tend to have a needy or a profoundly heavy quality attached to them, and probably won't alleviate your inner yearning.

        Quiet creative work in solitude can be soothing, as can making whatever circumstances you may find yourself in more beautiful. Take time to do things for yourself that you have neglected and may even feel very awkward at - cooking yourself a wonderful meal, going for a pleasure trip all by yourself.

        Make amends to the people in your life you have neglected or been unloving towards.


4 Jan 2006           (19 Dec 2005 to 18 Jan 2006) Sat Oppos Sun

        This is a low cycle as far as vitality, creative energy, and inspiration are concerned. You may feel dried up, used up, and tired of it all. You may be questioning the worth or validity of what you have been doing, or come up against some serious adversaries who seem intent on thwarting you. Responsibility, duty, obligation, or past commitments rule your life now, and a parent may become the source of considerable burdens during this period. Whatever your age, you may be feeling old, tired, or worn from the stresses in your life. This is a time to conserve your energy, eliminate all unnecessary activity, and concentrate on the immediate tasks at hand. In some significant way, this is "karmic pay back time". If you have been living honorably and with integrity, this may well be a lean or pressured time but you'll most likely emerge strong and undamaged. If you have been making poor choices, the results of those choices will manifest during this cycle.

Positive Potentials:

        Pruning, eliminating, simplifying, and allowing whatever is passing away at this time to go. Concentrating on essentials, reducing extraneous actions.

Negative Potentials:

        Self-pity, self-isolation, depression.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Humble yourself enough to share your struggle with caring others, and accept the help they offer you. Do not blame yourself excessively for whatever is occurring, but take responsibility for your actions and choices, and do what you can to make amends if you have transgressed.

        Recognize that this ebb in your energy and/or confidence is part of a natural cycle, and expect your spirits to return. Do not make drastic decisions based on how you are feeling now.


6 Jan 2006       2 AM(2 Jan 2006 to 9 Jan 2006) Mars Qucnx Moon

        Just DO IT is your motto now. You're in the mood for action and may be especially disgruntled by others' indecisiveness, passivity, or laziness. Beware of emotional outbursts and aggressive maneuvering in traffic or at home, because what you perceive to be slowness on the part of others may just be your own impatience. However, ongoing or chronic tensions that you try to ignore most of the time are likely to erupt now. This isn't the best time to visit the in-laws, or to work out problems with people you're close to. Find positive ways to let off steam. A vigorous tennis match, perhaps?


6 Jan 2006       6 PM(5 Jan 2006 to 7 Jan 2006) Sun Qucnx Jup

        You tend to overreach, overextend, and promise or expect too much, in an overly optimistic assessment of what you can do right now. You see all the possibilities in a positive light, minimizing the potential obstacles. If you commit to anything now, be certain it's something you're truly willing to follow through on. Mutually beneficial contacts are fostered, especially with people at a distance.


12 Jan 2006          (29 Dec 2005 to 25 Jan 2006) Sat Sqr Sat

        This is a crucial period of testing, which challenges your commitment to the life you have chosen thus far. A failure, a loss of status, a personal disappointment, or some other disheartening event may usher in this period of reexamination. You are more aware than ever of your weaknesses and vulnerabilities, and insecurity, fear, and self-doubt may be unwelcome companions now. Basically you are thrown back on your inner resolve to continue on the path you've been on. Areas that are shaky and less than solid will need to be built up or eliminated altogether. Discern what is worth holding on to or working to strengthen, and what must be shed. If you stubbornly resist letting go of what isn't really essential to living out your authentic life, you set yourself up for even greater loss later on.

Positive Potentials:

        Necessary endings, losses, or closure in order to concentrate on what is true and most important to your development. Making hard choices that leave you feeling strengthened. Recognizing the depth of your commitment to your current path. Facing weaknesses in order to heal them and build strength.

Negative Potentials:

        A severe crisis of confidence reaping the results of past dishonesty (with self or others), unconscious behavior, compromises, or shortcuts.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Stand still and take stock. Do not further weaken yourself by resenting circumstances or blaming others if you find yourself standing in a place that is not to your liking. Embracing self-responsibility and your power to choose differently now gives you strength. Be compassionate toward yourself, and your places of weakness and imperfection. Join deep and rigorous self-honesty with humor and tenderness toward yourself.

        Get help from a counselor, healer, or elder for the places you are really stuck or blocked. Employ simple methods, such as slow, conscious breathing, to bring yourself into present-time clarity.


19 Jan 2006          (20 Dec 2005 to 15 Feb 2006) Nep Trine Jup

        A mood of spiritual optimism, of being buoyed up from within, colors this time period. You feel more expanded and open, and yearn for grand and spacious vistas  - the ocean perhaps, or some other vast, expansive place. You are also attracted to travel for spiritual refreshment, learning, and growth. Your mundane concerns don't matter quite so much now, and you may find your ambitions subtly changing and moving away from material accomplishment alone. Religious studies, metaphysical pursuits, or charitable causes are more your focus.

Positive Potentials:

        Openness to miracles, magic, and the help of unseen forces. Increased sense of trust, hope, and optimism born of your connection to something greater. Spiritual pilgrimage. Increased compassionate concern for a wider circle, rising above petty personal self-gain. Using music or the arts for enlightenment or healing.

Negative Potentials:

        A certain passivity, irresponsibility toward material obligations, indolence, and over-reliance on providence or the good will of others is possible, but only if you already lean that way. Unrealistic expectations and big dreams, the tendency to gamble foolishly.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        As long as you avoid the above mentioned passive, irresponsible attitude, you should enjoy this time immensely. Commit yourself to one ACTION a day that is aligned with your ideals and compassion - perhaps a "random act of kindness" for a stranger.


6 Feb 2006           (5 Jan 2006 to 30 June 2006) Plu Sxtil Nep

        A deep longing for connection to your life purpose or your inner being emerges. Childhood dreams and other yearnings that you may have buried in the course of attending to immediate practical concerns are likely to come to light as well. The mysterious, the intangible, and the higher or subtler dimensions of life pull you. This is an excellent time to begin meditation or deep dream work, to go on retreat, or commence spiritual or metaphysical studies. The veil between the physical and the nonphysical may thin or part for you at this time, revealing an ongoing connection to the spiritual world.

        Areas of your life that require deep soul cleansing, perhaps a relationship or problem that has been evaded until now, can begin to heal if you are willing to engage it.

Positive Potentials:

        Intensified soul life and awakened spiritual impulses. Deep healing work is fruitful, especially if it involves the spiritual side as well.

Negative Potentials:

        Ignoring your inner voice or the need for a spiritual reckoning can leave you feeling empty.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        This is a time when you can let go of distorted religious or "spiritual" beliefs that actually hinder you and your direct experience of the divine. Old patterns of addiction, victimization, deception, passivity, or other disempowering behaviors can be healed if you take this opportunity to become ware of them and release them. Subtle forms of healing, vibration medicine, and energy work is especially appropriate and supportive now.
