Personal Astrology Forecast for

Ray Charles

Albany, Georgia

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.

13 June 2005         (12 June 2005 to 18 July 2005) Sun 7th H.

        Your focus is on relationships, coupling, and balancing your personal interests and objectives with what would be best for a significant other. The emphasis is on "us" rather than "me". You need the energies, companionship, and support of other people, and they also are drawing upon you a great deal. It's important to give others credit and recognition, and to attempt to harmonize and include others rather than to go solo.


19 June 2005         (10 June 2005 to 1 Feb 2007) Sat 8th H.

        The issues during this period are achieving a deeper level of sharing, cooperating, and blending your energies and values with those of others. Fears of surrendering and losing control may prevent you from fully merging emotionally and/or in material matters. Money - who has more, who has less, and the resultant power issues that come out of that - can be a big factor now. Needing to become more financially self-reliant or becoming more serious and dedicated to solving joint financial problems and/or differences in values may also be part of the stew.

        On another level, you may be more acutely aware of deeper forces within yourself that are inhibiting your vitality and happiness. Understanding the ways you withhold yourself and/or becoming more acutely aware of your own mortality can move you to become more committed to life.


19 June 2005         (10 Mar 2005 to 2 Aug 2005) Nep Qucnx Jup

        Muddles and confusion in financial and legal matters, in pursuing your long-range educational or professional goals, or in your travels are possible at this time. Misrepresentation in advertising, false claims, or exaggerating the benefits of a product or service could well be part of this.

        It's important for you to stay as clear and focused as possible now, because you are prone to distractions, and to the belief that "some how it will all work out", which can be illusory. Real work and progress can thus be undermined. If you need "fantasy breaks", then take them - but make no decisions based on them.

        Health can be challenged by excesses and addictions to comfort.

Positive Potentials:

        Rising above the ordinary and mundane, appreciation for imaginative art and culture.

Negative Potentials:

        Excessive and wasteful consumption. Deceiving oneself about the merits and realistic potentials of a "promising" path. Trying to do too much for others to the neglect of oneself. Overbalanced giving and serving.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        If you feel that the path you have been walking in life is basically sound and true to yourself, don't allow subtle doubts or enticing promises to lead you away from it. Beware of spiritual escapism that only serves to keep you from dealing with real issues, and from doing what you can do to improve things.

        Avoid consuming too much sugar, alcohol, or other intoxicants, especially while traveling.


20 June 2005         (10 Mar 2005 to 3 Aug 2005) Nep Trine Moon

        During this period you have a heightened sensitivity to everything around you - at times an almost mystical sense of oneness or communion. Because of your increased sympathetic awareness of others' unspoken feelings and states of being, you feel more compassion and a greater desire to assist them. You may even find yourself talking to plants and listening to what the birds are telling you.

        You may also experience more clearly the powerful affects of music, color, and atmospheres on your mood and sense of well-being. This is a good time to learn about feng shui, the Chinese art of creating harmonious, life-enhancing spaces to live or work in. Intuitive or psychic development courses, meditation, spiritual healing, dream work, and other such teachings or practices would benefit you a great deal at this time also.

Positive Potentials:

        Increased sensitivity and openness to subtle and spiritual realities and spiritual guidance. Feeling emotionally and spiritually connected to all creation. Greater forgiveness and understanding in personal relationships. Mystical feelings of closeness with family or others. Heightened imagination opens new worlds and any work involving music, art, imagery, or healing is enhanced.

Negative Potentials:

        There are few negatives associated with this cycle, unless you are already overly idealistic, fanciful, and impractical, in which case these tendencies may be somewhat more pronounced than usual.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Begin paying attention to your dreams, fantasies feelings, subtle impressions, inklings, and thoughts that seem unusual or unrelated to your usual way of thinking. Keep a journal to record these in, as they may contain inner guidance and creative seeds for future projects.

        Say yes to your "silly" desire to paint, or write poetry, or to use your imagination in creative ways that may be new to you. Translate your empathy and charitable feelings into acts of generosity and kindness.


20 June 2005         (20 June 2005 to 9 Nov 2005) Plu 12th H.

        This is a period of deepening self-knowledge, particularly of the unconscious or deeper forces at work in the psyche, and of purging old psychic residue. Psychotherapy, past life therapy, shamanic healing, dream work, and other methods of inner exploration and transformation may be useful to you. This is not a particularly social or outwardly active time, and you may seek (or endure!) periods of solitude; or be involved with a few significant others who are similarly engaged in deep processes of healing and regeneration.


20 June 2005         (11 May 2005 to 7 Aug 2005) Plu Conj Asc

        This is a period of fateful endings and beginnings.

        Deep transformational forces are at work within you, aiming to reshape how you project yourself into the world and come across to others. False facades, pretenses, and immature behavior (based on receiving others' approval at the expense of deep honesty and integrity) can no longer be maintained. If you habitually shrink or dissemble in order to get along with people, you may be surprised at the intensity of the forces you feel welling up from within; you can no longer tolerate such self-disregard. The ways you manipulate people or allow yourself to be manipulated are exposed, and this can lead to some mighty struggles. Long-buried or suppressed energies will emerge to be dealt with, both in times of deep self confrontation and in encounters with others. Unexamined compulsive behavior which masks your true self and your wholeness can be reworked or cleared away now, enabling you to meet the world from a much more honest and self-empowered position.

Positive Potentials:

        Renewed energy, vitality, and freedom from old masks and stifling pretenses. Reclaiming disowned power.

Negative Potentials:

        If you are unwilling to do the soul work required or to make substantive changes in how you relate to the world, you will further suppress the process that is trying to happen, leading to a more volcanic crisis later on. Intense power struggles.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Spend some time alone or in a therapeutic environment working on the issues that are arising now. Be thorough, even ruthless, with the deep functional or life-denying patterns you've developed, while recognizing that they once served you well. Don't be afraid to evolve! What is dying or trying to be shed are ways of being that hide who and what you really are.

        Engage in deeper dialogues with the people in your life who may want to keep the old game going, and lovingly but firmly explain that the rules are changing. Remain true to your renewed sense of personal integrity, letting others go through whatever changes they may need to in order to rebalance.


24 June 2005         (22 June 2005 to 9 Aug 2005) Mars 4th H.

        Tackling some major project in your home, garden, or yard, or taking action on something in your home that's been neglected or needing repair for some time, is on the agenda now. It's best if you work by yourself or with a family member who is equally eager and committed to the project, however, because otherwise impatience, anger, and hurt feelings may spoil the enterprise. Strive to be kind and respectful towards family members, who may seem to be going out of their way to irritate you!


25 June 2005         (24 June 2005 to 25 July 2005) Ven 8th H.

        A deep personal connection and intimate exchange can be healing, replenishing, and soothing to your soul. This is a good time to work on resolving grievances, differences in values, or money problems in a close relationship. There is also apt to be favorable developments regarding shared assets, jointly owned property, borrowing money, or repaying loans to the satisfaction of all concerned.


25 June 2005         (25 June 2005 to 6 Sep 2005) Merc 8th H.

        Focus the light of understanding and honest communication on emotionally-charged topics such as sexuality and intimacy, feelings about the power dynamics in your partnerships, and money you share with significant others. You can have a more objective and fair view of such things now, and could clarify any long-standing issues related to any of this. On a practical level, it is the time to handle joint finances, material assets or property you hold in common with another, and matters pertaining to inheritances, taxes, or commercial interests.


7 July 2005      1 PM(6 July 2005 to 9 July 2005) Mars Oppos 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?


7 July 2005      1 PM(6 July 2005 to 9 July 2005) Mars Sqr Jup

        Your challenge now is to synchronize your own will and agenda with the larger energies or grand design. You tend to be tripped up by over-eagerness or expecting too much too soon, but if can relax, trust, and allow supportive energies to come to you, your desire can be fulfilled or a wish realized. Ask for what you want and do what you need to, then let it happen. No forcing or overdoing needed!


7 July 2005      2 PM(6 July 2005 to 8 July 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.


7 July 2005      3 PM(6 July 2005 to 8 July 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.


9 July 2005      5 AM(8 July 2005 to 10 July 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.


9 July 2005      5 AM(8 July 2005 to 10 July 2005) Sun Conj 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 July 2005     12 PM(8 July 2005 to 10 July 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!


9 July 2005      3 PM(8 July 2005 to 10 July 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.


11 July 2005     1 AM(10 July 2005 to 12 July 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.


11 July 2005     7 PM(10 July 2005 to 13 July 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!


12 July 2005     7 AM(11 July 2005 to 13 July 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.


12 July 2005     6 PM(11 July 2005 to 13 July 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.


12 July 2005     7 PM(11 July 2005 to 14 July 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.


13 July 2005    11 PM(12 July 2005 to 15 July 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.


15 July 2005     4 AM(14 July 2005 to 16 July 2005) Sun Qucnx 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.


16 July 2005         (8 July 2005 to 23 July 2005) Sat Sxtil Sun

        This is a time to solidify your alliances, strengthen friendships or relationships with colleagues, and be willing to take on increased responsibility. Elders take on a positive role in your life.

Positive Potentials:

        Hard work and past effort begin to be recognized. You are able to put yourself upon very solid ground now in some area of your life. Honor all commitments and behave charitably to those you are in a position to help now. Opportunities offered to you, though requiring some initial sacrifice or extra work, will lead to success down the road.

Negative Potentials:

        There is very little negative which is associated with the cycle, other than ignoring the opportunities for service or the benefits you can gain from older individuals.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Think of your time as an investment. Invest wisely in positive relationships and in the financial or business arena as well.


16 July 2005    10 AM(14 July 2005 to 18 July 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.


17 July 2005    12 AM(16 July 2005 to 17 July 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.


18 July 2005    10 AM(17 July 2005 to 19 July 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.


18 July 2005         (17 July 2005 to 26 Aug 2005) Sun 8th H.

        Intensifying your emotional, psychic, and energy connection to an intimate partner is the focus now. Also on the agenda are issues of shared values, shared properties or money, and the ways you blend with or withhold from one another on all levels.

        In practical terms, you may need to attend to your will, investments, inheritances, insurance, and preparations for personal and/or mutual long-term security and well-being.


21 July 2005    12 PM(19 July 2005 to 23 July 2005) Mars Qucnx 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 July 2005    11 AM(21 July 2005 to 23 July 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.


25 July 2005         (25 July 2005 to 23 Aug 2005) Ven 9th H.

        You are attracted to distant places and/or people from different cultures, faith, social customs, or vastly different life experiences from your own. A pleasure cruise to an exotic locale, falling in love with a special teacher, enjoying philosophy and sharing your quest for truth or enlightenment are various ways this could be expressed. Any kind of travel or cross-cultural exchange is quite favorable now.


26 July 2005     9 AM(25 July 2005 to 27 July 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.


27 July 2005     7 AM(26 July 2005 to 28 July 2005) Ven Trine 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.


27 July 2005    10 PM(26 July 2005 to 29 July 2005) Mars Qucnx 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.


28 July 2005     4 AM(27 July 2005 to 29 July 2005) Sun Qucnx 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.


31 July 2005     6 AM(30 July 2005 to 1 Aug 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.


31 July 2005     4 PM(30 July 2005 to 2 Aug 2005) Merc Sxtil Moon

This astrological influence (Merc Sxtil Moon) also occurred on 13 July 2005 (peak date). Please refer to this date.


2 Aug 2005       9 PM(1 Aug 2005 to 4 Aug 2005) Merc Sqr Ven

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


3 Aug 2005      10 AM(2 Aug 2005 to 4 Aug 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.


4 Aug 2005       1 PM(2 Aug 2005 to 6 Aug 2005) Mars Trine Nep

        You want to DO something you usually only fantasize about or normally consider lovely but unrealistic. You need to take concrete steps - even if only small ones - in the direction of a dream. Doing so will give you energy and can stimulate possibilities and opportunities you never imagined before. A magical moment!


4 Aug 2005           (29 July 2005 to 11 Aug 2005) Jup Oppos Ura

        The spirit of freedom, liberation, release, and expansion blows through your life now. Erratic twists and turns, sudden and unexpected opportunities, gifts from out of the blue, and synchronicities that align you with the larger order offer you an opening into a much different future. You may feel your ideals and dreams now have a possibility of being realized, or that whole new worlds you never knew existed are now available. You're also very restless and more impulsive. If you work in a scientific, technical, or social development field, there could be a big breakthrough.

        Relationships that have been stifling and restrictive for you or for the other party are changing now as well, enabling both to experience more freedom. You could have an unexpected encounter or serendipitous meeting with someone who will be important in the times to come. Stay open, curious, loose, willing, and listen to the voice of intuition. Overall, your spontaneous impulses will lead you in the right direction.

Positive Potentials:

        Fortunate surprises and unexpected developments. Sudden windfalls and outrageous good fortune. A liberating release from a chronically tense situation or relationship. A new teaching or understanding that radically alters your consciousness.

Negative Potentials:

        Tendencies toward irresponsibility, foolish risk taking, or exaggerating the benefits of a new venture are magnified.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Welcome and enjoy the inspiration, optimism, and adventurousness of the moment. Try as many new things as you feel drawn to. However, please temper your excitement with common sense. For instance, you may feel wildly lucky right now, but your luck is erratic. Don't invest or speculate with resources you can't happily part with.


4 Aug 2005      11 PM(4 Aug 2005 to 5 Aug 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.


4 Aug 2005      11 PM(4 Aug 2005 to 5 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!


5 Aug 2005       8 AM(4 Aug 2005 to 6 Aug 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.


6 Aug 2005       1 AM(5 Aug 2005 to 7 Aug 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.


6 Aug 2005       6 AM(5 Aug 2005 to 7 Aug 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.


6 Aug 2005       2 PM(4 Aug 2005 to 8 Aug 2005) Mars Trine Sat

        This is an excellent time to concentrate on the immediate and get some real work done. You can apply yourself to some unexciting or disagreeable but necessary job and stick with it until it's finished - or at least until you've made some visible, tangible progress. In fact, you're apt to enjoy this more than just about anything else at the moment. It feels good to accomplish tasks and have something to show at the end of the day. Practice, refining a technique, or problem-solving is featured.


8 Aug 2005      12 AM(6 Aug 2005 to 9 Aug 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.


9 Aug 2005       2 AM(8 Aug 2005 to 10 Aug 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.


9 Aug 2005       3 PM(8 Aug 2005 to 10 Aug 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.


9 Aug 2005           (7 Aug 2005 to 19 Feb 2006) Mars 5th H.

        You have an intense need to express yourself now, to do your own things, and to put the imprint of your own style and uniqueness on whatever you do. Competitive sports, performances, contests, or shows call forth your best efforts, and you're eager to give it all you've got.

        Romantic passions are stimulated and a love affair could heat up!


11 Aug 2005     12 AM(10 Aug 2005 to 11 Aug 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.


12 Aug 2005      5 AM(10 Aug 2005 to 14 Aug 2005) Mars Qucnx MC

        You may not be moving ahead as you'd like, or you may find that you're struggling to get things done. Hurrying, irritability with family or people at work, and a disagreeable attitude can make this a tense time. Don't try to do more than you have to, or make deadlines for yourself that you then push yourself and others to meet. Chill out a little!


13 Aug 2005      3 PM(12 Aug 2005 to 14 Aug 2005) Ven Conj Merc

        Your awareness of love, relationship, aesthetics, and beauty is enhanced. You have an eye for what goes together, or what's appealing and pleasing, so you may do some rearranging or suddenly notice the graciousness (or lack of it) in your surroundings. This is an ideal time to send notes of appreciation or to have a love talk with your sweetheart. You are able to verbally express feelings,  desires, and wishes that would be harder to articulate at other times. Creative writing, designing, and cultural affairs are favored.


15 Aug 2005     12 PM(14 Aug 2005 to 16 Aug 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!


16 Aug 2005     12 PM(12 Aug 2005 to 18 Aug 2005) merc sxtil 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.


16 Aug 2005          (10 Aug 2005 to 22 Aug 2005) Jup Sqr Mars

        This is cycle of positive self-assertiveness, increased confidence and energy, and willingness to take on new challenges. Aspirations, ambitions, and the urge to expand into new territory are heightened. You are looking ahead, not behind you, and you want to act, not just wish or dream. As long as you have the necessary foundation of skills and wise planning, your actions are likely to be successful and lead to bigger things. However you may be tempted to bite off more than you can chew!

Positive Potentials:

        Inspired and fortunate action. Acting on behalf of a broader concern for the well-being of others as well as oneself. A boost of energy for birthing new enterprises. Joyous, exuberant energy for work or play. Competing successfully, in a playful spirit.

Negative Potentials:

        Taking on more activities than you can comfortably carry, promising more or expecting too much of yourself, overextending yourself and your energy resources. Friction with the law or other authorities because you believe you can get away with anything right now.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Avoid arrogant, cocky, overconfident behavior, as this will arouse opposition to you and your plans. Channel any restless energy into vigorous play or work that you enjoy, but avoid foolish risk-taking, especially regarding physical activities or sports that you aren't conditioned for.


16 Aug 2005      9 PM(16 Aug 2005 to 17 Aug 2005) Ven Conj Sun

        Your love light shines brightly now and you wish to please and be pleased, to give and receive a personal, loving touch. Both romance and friendship are enhanced by warm expressions of appreciation, affection, and treats. Your sensitivity to aesthetics is heightened as well and anything ugly or impersonal will bother you more than usual. This is a time to beautify, embellish, decorate, or bring flowers. You attract admiration as well!


21 Aug 2005     11 AM(20 Aug 2005 to 22 Aug 2005) Ven Sqr Sat

        Feeling deprived, excluded, lonely, or distant from the people who love you may occur now. It could be a cooling off period in a relationship, or a critical moment that tests its strength. Tending your hurt feelings without indulging in self-pity or one-sided blame is important. You may also meet obstacles or self-doubt in regard to some creative project you're in the midst of. Try to work on the flaws or weak aspects of it without considering the whole endeavor a failure. Take a break!


23 Aug 2005          (16 July 2005 to 24 Jan 2006) Nep Qucnx Mars

        Subtle undermining influences can impinge upon your ability to stay focused and bring your desires to realization. Perhaps an underlying sense of uncertainty, aimlessness, or lack of real desire hinders your ability to commit to a definite course of action. Or you may have debilitating habits, addictions, evasive or avoidant tendencies, or toxic influences in your life that need to be seen as such and eliminated as much as possible. This is a time when self-indulgence can really get you into trouble, so now is the time to clean up your act.

        Health issues can arise from chronic poor choices in diet, lifestyle, or mismanagement of energy resources. Try to determine where your energy is subtly drained or leaks away. If you are martyring yourself for a cause, you may want to reconsider this. You will need to define for yourself issues of healthy selfishness and self-preservation versus excessive caretaking or being overly involved in others' lives and dramas.

Positive Potentials:

        Softening the tension related to extreme striving, competition, and forcing one's will.

Negative Potentials:

        Fears and insecurities related to survival. Temptation to take the "easy" way or to avoid troublesome personal issues. Increased sensitivities to toxic or intoxicating substances. Maladies that are difficult to pinpoint or clearly diagnose.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Healthy, balanced living that includes rest, physical exercise, work, relationships, and attention to your spirit can offset much of the imbalances that are possible during this period.

        Be aware of what you "feed" yourself as the quality of your food, relationships, and thoughts strongly affects your physical immunity and vitality, and your ability to ward off toxic external influences of all kinds. Consciously upgrade what you take in at any level now.


23 Aug 2005          (16 July 2005 to 24 Jan 2006) Nep Sqr Ven

        During this period your sense of love is being refined and spiritualized. You may begin to have dreams of heavenly beauty, mystical feelings of oneness and soul-connection, longings for divine love or spiritual company, or very strong feelings of compassion for any suffering you encounter. You become more sensitive to others, and may be more tender, kind, and receptive to not only your own immediate family or circle, but to people and life in general.

        You are also rather inclined to fall in love with love or with some beautiful, enchanting image. You are susceptible to romantic illusions and to deceiving yourself regarding a beloved's nature, intentions, or feelings for you. Or you may engage in a relationship that involves sacrificing, serving, or "saving" the other person. You tend to confuse pity with love right now, and your emotional boundaries are not as clear. You also find yourself attracting or attracted to artists, entertainers, dreamers, visionaries, UFO enthusiasts, psychics, spiritual healers, or weirdos!

        Poetry, art, and music-making flourishes now as you are inundated with imagery and feelings that you can probably only express in artistic form.

Positive Potentials:

        Open-heartedness, awakening of the heart, appreciating your spiritual connection to all that is. Divine love, angelic love, spiritual vocation. Flowering artistically.

Negative Potentials:

        Being overly idealistic. Allowing fantasy or romanticism to overcome your better judgment regarding a beloved person, or being a martyr for love.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Even if you believe you have found true love or your "soul mate", it would be wise to maintain realistic expectations and a sense of proportion. Enjoy the feelings while recognizing that there is much fantasy which is feeding them right now. Don't give up everything for love, as a disappointment or rude awakening may follow. Practice discernment!


23 Aug 2005     11 PM(23 Aug 2005 to 24 Aug 2005) Ven Conj MC

        Cooperative and friendly relationships in a professional setting are featured now. Having lunch or socializing with a mentor or superior, or getting to know someone on a more personal basis than is usual in your work environment, can establish good will. You could even become infatuated with someone who embodies your vision of success. This is actually a very positive time to meet the public or to increase your popularity and public image. Demonstrate your appreciation for others and a true awareness of their concerns.


23 Aug 2005          (23 Aug 2005 to 17 Sep 2005) Ven 10th H.

        Cooperation and a focus on harmony and understanding benefits you professionally and/or enhances your reputation and public standing. Attending an important social occasion or festivity may put you in the public eye as well. A romance or beneficial friendship that begins as a business alliance could be part of the picture. You may also feel you are married to your career right now because quite a bit of your energy is invested there and/or you love what you're doing at the moment.


25 Aug 2005      1 AM(24 Aug 2005 to 26 Aug 2005) Merc Trine Ura

This astrological influence (Merc Trine Ura) also occurred on 5 Aug 2005 (peak date). Please refer to this date.


25 Aug 2005          (19 Aug 2005 to 30 Aug 2005) Jup Sqr Jup

        A great eagerness to expand, to go beyond your current situation, to enlarge your life, and to have, do, or be MORE comes over you during this period. You are noticing where you have limited yourself and sensing much greater possibilities. The gambler in you may come to the fore; you want to take your chances, to try your luck. If you are usually excessively cautious, prudent, and constricted, this can be just what you need to open up, to dream bigger, and to allow yourself a larger life. But "too much of a good thing" also characterizes this time, so avoid overdoing it.

        Financial and business activities may surge now, and you are thus inclined to expand and invest. However, your hopes and expectations may be somewhat greater than is warranted. Temper your optimism with common sense.

Positive Potentials:

        Increased confidence, generosity, and openness to large possibilities. Enthusiasm, growth, expansion, positive expectation. Fortunate developments and promotions in the professional or business world. Intellectual growth, learning, travel, meeting people with vastly different cultural, religious, or philosophical attitudes who broaden your experience and understanding.

Negative Potentials:

        Conflicts in legal, financial, professional, or philosophical realms. Exaggerated claims and promises. Sloppiness, over-optimism, taking on or promising more than you can actually accomplish.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Look around and see where you can step out and satisfy your urge for a greater sense of freedom. Look at the areas of yourself or your life that have been neglected or undeveloped (your spirit, your relationships, your work and goals, your physical body) and begin to address the imbalance.

        Bring humor and tolerance to situations that involve differing opinions or philosophical conflicts. Carefully evaluate any business or investment "opportunity" that comes your way now, and check out your motives. If you're trying to get something for nothing, this can be disastrous.


25 Aug 2005          (19 Aug 2005 to 30 Aug 2005) Jup Conj Moon

        No matter what is happening around you at this time you feel wonderful. A sense of well-being, emotional generosity, and positive expectation permeates this time period. There is an expanded sense of nurture and support from, and emotional connection with, others. This can be a positive new beginning in your family life. Reunions and reconciliations are likely because of your openness and willingness to forgive and to let go of petty differences. Home comfort is important to you now and you may invest in improvements, enrichments, or the expansion of your home.

Positive Potentials:

        Improved relationships with parents, children, and extended family members. A more open, welcoming, inclusive attitude toward people in general. Trust in the universe, God, or life to provide for your needs. Not needing to guard or hoard what you have; expecting more to flow to you. Able to handle difficulties with more ease, humor, balance, and perspective. Emotional optimism.

Negative Potentials:

        Excesses in spending, giving grandiose gifts which you cannot afford (to yourself or others). "Living it up" too much. Excessive indulgence in alcohol or food, especially fat-laden foods. (This will only happen if you already have a problem with overeating, drinking or spending.) Laziness or wanting to avoid hard work.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Act on those charitable impulses to reach out to and share with and include those outside your family circle. If you tend to overspend on credit, use a buddy system. Set a limit for yourself, and once you've reached it, hand your credit cards over to your buddy - at least until this cycle has passed.

        Enjoy this time and remember that how you are feeling about life/others/yourself now is more accurate and closer to the truth than in times of doubt.


26 Aug 2005          (25 Aug 2005 to 1 Oct 2005) Sun 9th H.

        Envisioning your future, considering all options from a larger, long-range perspective, or significantly expanding your horizons through cross-cultural exchanges is emphasized. This is also an excellent time to teach or promote a publication, to attend a conference or seminar, and to travel for adventure, educational, or spiritual purposes.


26 Aug 2005      3 PM(25 Aug 2005 to 27 Aug 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!


27 Aug 2005      6 AM(26 Aug 2005 to 28 Aug 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.


27 Aug 2005      7 PM(27 Aug 2005 to 28 Aug 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 Aug 2005          (19 Aug 2005 to 5 Sep 2005) Sat Qucnx Sat

        Delays, obstructions, and hindrances characterize this time period. What appeared to be moving forward may slow considerably or come to a standstill. Extraneous activities and involvements may need to be curtailed so that you can focus on more immediate demands and dealing with the obligations that arise. There may be pressure to clear up old business.

        The awareness of time and its limitations weighs in heavily now, perhaps with a concern about physical aging, the changing needs of your body through time, the sense that you have "wasted" more time than you would have wished. And it may not be the right time to proceed with something previously planned.

        You're more careful, guarded, and withheld in many areas of your life, and this may be a useful strategy now. Forging ahead despite clear indications that this isn't wise can set you up for some real trouble.

Positive Potentials:

        Choosing to slow down or give something up in order to concentrate on essential matters. Difficult responsibilities handled with grace. Deepening, maturing, accepting limitation as a friend using delays or defeats as an opportunity to realign your direction.

Negative Potentials:

        Doubt, self-judgment, self-criticism, and negativism that need to be released or worked through.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Slow way down, especially if your body or external circumstances seem to be frustrating your free forward movement. Determine to be constructive and focus on what you CAN do now, rather than what you can not. Humor is very helpful now to prevent yourself from being too weighed down. Take small breaks. Ask for help if you are very stuck, blocked or in pain.


28 Aug 2005      9 AM(25 Aug 2005 to 30 Aug 2005) Mars Oppos 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.


28 Aug 2005      9 AM(25 Aug 2005 to 30 Aug 2005) Mars Sxtil Mars

        You are highly motivated, energized, and eager to do and to accomplish now, especially if you can determine your own pace and course. Your efforts tend to succeed because you act with an extra measure of confidence, certainty, and verve. This is an ideal time to take on daunting challenges that you might back away from on other days. Satisfying work and friendly competition is featured.


28 Aug 2005      9 AM(27 Aug 2005 to 29 Aug 2005) Sun Trine 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.


28 Aug 2005      4 PM(27 Aug 2005 to 29 Aug 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.


30 Aug 2005      7 AM(29 Aug 2005 to 31 Aug 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.


31 Aug 2005     12 PM(30 Aug 2005 to 1 Sep 2005) Merc Trine 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.


31 Aug 2005      2 PM(30 Aug 2005 to 1 Sep 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!


31 Aug 2005      2 PM(30 Aug 2005 to 1 Sep 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.


1 Sep 2005      10 AM(29 Aug 2005 to 4 Sep 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?


1 Sep 2005      10 AM(29 Aug 2005 to 4 Sep 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.


3 Sep 2005      11 AM(2 Sep 2005 to 4 Sep 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.


5 Sep 2005      10 AM(4 Sep 2005 to 6 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.


6 Sep 2005       4 AM(5 Sep 2005 to 7 Sep 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.


6 Sep 2005           (5 Sep 2005 to 25 Sep 2005) Merc 9th H.

        Cross-cultural exchanges, a visit or significant communication from someone far away, and/or a long journey broaden your thinking. Your thoughts are lifted above the usual daily concerns and immediate business into thoughts and visions about future, larger goals, and the purpose and meaning of your activities. You are putting everything into a larger context. Discussions and/or reading on issues of faith and of the spirit are likely to be a part of this.


6 Sep 2005       7 PM(6 Sep 2005 to 7 Sep 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 Sep 2005       9 AM(6 Sep 2005 to 8 Sep 2005) Merc Trine 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.


8 Sep 2005       3 AM(7 Sep 2005 to 9 Sep 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.


8 Sep 2005       3 AM(7 Sep 2005 to 9 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.


9 Sep 2005       5 PM(8 Sep 2005 to 10 Sep 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.


10 Sep 2005          (16 Aug 2005 to 9 Oct 2005) Ura Qucnx MC

        Some uncontrollable, chaotic elements can make this time period a roller coaster ride at work, or in your financial affairs. Things seem to be happening quickly then cease altogether, and it can be difficult to find your rhythm or know what to expect from day to day. A new job, different duties on the job, or a new boss or co-worker may work out well after a period of adjustment. If you enjoy troubleshooting, relish the challenge of meeting unexpected developments as they arise, and don't mind an accelerated pace, you can negotiate this passage rather well; otherwise, it's apt to be stressful.

        On the other hand, you may be the one who is changing and/or erratic regarding your goals, ambitions, and direction. Unconventional styles, methods, or subjects gain appeal for you now, and you must do something different (from what you've done before or from mainstream culture).

Positive Potentials:

        Changing values or attitudes towards material things can liberate you to follow a new path. Increased freedom in your work.

Negative Potentials:

        Sudden job loss or increased stress regarding work and finance. One's mentor or well-respected leader loses credibility, authority, or stature. Losing position, or controversy regarding your public standing and reputation.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Radical, extreme, all-or-nothing solutions are suspect now. Beware of burning your bridges. Try to ease your way into new circumstances rather than charging ahead like lightning. Recognize that much of what occurs now is not personal, even  though it directly affects you. Larger, impersonal forces are at work which you can rail at and resist or try to flow with. Find ways to vent and release tension, including physical exercise, talking to friends who are uninvolved in the current drama, and laughing at the absurdities and reversals life presents.


11 Sep 2005      8 PM(11 Sep 2005 to 12 Sep 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.


12 Sep 2005          (7 Sep 2005 to 17 Sep 2005) Jup Sqr Plu

        This can be a time of great healing, regeneration, and improvement in the areas of your life most in need of light and uplifting. On a personal and inner level, profoundly positive and encouraging developments can occur in your efforts to improve or work with a difficult condition, to turn around a situation that may be in ruins at the moment. You may discover a method, guide, transformational healer, or renewed faith and connection to a higher beneficent power.

        You may also be inspired to improve the environmental or social conditions in your immediate world. Aspirations of all kinds - social, material, political, as well as personal - are intensified and activated now. You may challenge the powers-that-be in the course of pursuing your own vision. To the extent that you can be broad and inclusive rather than fanatical or one-sided in your approach, you can succeed and even far exceed expectations.

Positive Potentials:

        Wider influence, recognition, success. Achieving extraordinary or magical effects by working with positive energy, faith, visualization, and co-creating with the universe or a higher power. Humor and spirituality as a healing force.

Negative Potentials:

        Fanatical philosophical beliefs or ideals. Legal problems, especially if you have cut corners or tried to succeed at others' expense.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Respond to the call. Follow up on the inspirations and opportunities to travel, to widen your sphere of experience, to learn and grow spiritually, intellectually and socially.

        A focus on sharing the glory, the wealth, or the power will yield the greatest benefits.


12 Sep 2005      4 AM(8 Sep 2005 to 16 Sep 2005) Mars Sxtil 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!


12 Sep 2005      7 PM(12 Sep 2005 to 13 Sep 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 Sep 2005      8 PM(12 Sep 2005 to 13 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.


13 Sep 2005      4 AM(12 Sep 2005 to 14 Sep 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.


13 Sep 2005      3 PM(13 Sep 2005 to 14 Sep 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.


15 Sep 2005      4 AM(14 Sep 2005 to 16 Sep 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.


15 Sep 2005     10 AM(14 Sep 2005 to 16 Sep 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.


15 Sep 2005     12 PM(14 Sep 2005 to 16 Sep 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.


16 Sep 2005      3 AM(15 Sep 2005 to 17 Sep 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.


16 Sep 2005      3 PM(16 Sep 2005 to 17 Sep 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.


17 Sep 2005          (16 Sep 2005 to 8 Oct 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.


18 Sep 2005      8 AM(17 Sep 2005 to 19 Sep 2005) Merc Conj Merc

        You are fluent, communicative, curious, and alert today. Words fly off your tongue quite easily now and you may speak before you even realize it. This is a good time to learn something new, perhaps take a short trip to satisfy your intellectual side. Conversation and meeting of the minds is featured.


18 Sep 2005      5 PM(17 Sep 2005 to 19 Sep 2005) Sun Conj Merc

        Initiating communication, conversations, and interchanges of all kinds is highlighted now. You express your thoughts easily and clearly, you know what you want to say and you are interested and curious about others' thoughts and opinions. Commercial trading and negotiations of any kind are favored.


20 Sep 2005     10 AM(19 Sep 2005 to 21 Sep 2005) Merc Conj Sun

        Active communication, making phone calls and connections, open discussions or forums, reading, thinking, and the power of expressive language is the theme for today. What you say now matters and makes an impact, so be certain you really mean it. Writing, lecturing, or any activity that involves words and ideas is favored.


22 Sep 2005      4 PM(21 Sep 2005 to 23 Sep 2005) Sun Conj Sun

        This is your moment in the Sun! Bask in being the center of attention and being recognized for just who and what you are. Your will and intentions have power now, so focus on what you want to create in your life in the year ahead.


23 Sep 2005          (18 Sep 2005 to 28 Sep 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.


23 Sep 2005     12 PM(22 Sep 2005 to 24 Sep 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.


23 Sep 2005      1 PM(22 Sep 2005 to 24 Sep 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.


24 Sep 2005      3 PM(17 Sep 2005 to 15 Oct 2005) Mars Qucnx Asc

        This is not the best time to try to do something jointly or cooperatively. Without realizing it or intending to, you may arouse others' anger or antipathy, perhaps by being overly assertive, competitive, or inconsiderate. Minor inconveniences or compromises create more friction and irritation than the situation actually warrants. Try to keep your cool. Working out or getting some physical exercise can help.


25 Sep 2005          (14 Sep 2005 to 6 Oct 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.


25 Sep 2005      4 AM(24 Sep 2005 to 26 Sep 2005) Ven Conj Ven

        Your power of attraction is strongly magnified today, and you may draw a special friendship, romance, or other gift into your life. This could be the beginning of a beautiful new love or the time to reestablish the heart connection between yourself and a beloved. Intimate sharing, pleasure, and simply being in love is what matters to you. The beauties of flowers, the earth, and all of your senses are intensified. Visit a garden, perfumery, or chocolatier. Wear shades of rose, pink, or soft greens to heighten the effect.


25 Sep 2005      4 AM(24 Sep 2005 to 26 Sep 2005) Ven Trine 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!


25 Sep 2005      5 AM(24 Sep 2005 to 26 Sep 2005) Merc Conj MC

        Clarifying your next step or consulting with someone who is in a position to help you professionally is on the agenda. This is an excellent time to attend an important meeting, seminar, conference, or class, and any endeavor involving communications, sales, or teaching is especially favored. You could even be on the local news or get a bit of local publicity, especially if you are seeking it.


25 Sep 2005          (24 Sep 2005 to 13 Oct 2005) Merc 10th H.

        Your thoughts are focused on accomplishment, achievement, professional advancement, and actively engaging in the larger world. You want your voice to be heard. Devising plans and strategies to actualize your desires, gathering information and making contacts to further your aims, or making a presentation to an important audience is favored during this cycle.


26 Sep 2005      1 PM(25 Sep 2005 to 27 Sep 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.


28 Sep 2005      5 AM(27 Sep 2005 to 29 Sep 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.


28 Sep 2005     11 AM(27 Sep 2005 to 29 Sep 2005) Merc Oppos 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 Sep 2005     12 PM(28 Sep 2005 to 30 Sep 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.


29 Sep 2005      2 PM(28 Sep 2005 to 30 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!


30 Sep 2005     12 PM(29 Sep 2005 to 1 Oct 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.


30 Sep 2005      1 PM(29 Sep 2005 to 1 Oct 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.


1 Oct 2005       5 AM(30 Sep 2005 to 2 Oct 2005) Sun Conj MC

        Making a difference in the world, furthering your personal aims and aspirations, or receiving public appreciation for your contribution is featured now. The focus is on personal integrity and honor, standing for something, being known for who you are. Whoever is your personal star or hero figures into all of this as well, because you need a guiding light and something to shoot for. Accept attention graciously.


1 Oct 2005           (30 Sep 2005 to 30 Oct 2005) Sun 10th H.

        This is your time to shine, especially professionally. Focus on your important aspirations and ambitions to make significant impact on the world around you. Your personal life and relationships may be put on the back burner for now as you aim for accomplishment and achievement. If you've done the preparatory work, you could be honored or promoted now.


2 Oct 2005       2 PM(1 Oct 2005 to 3 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.


4 Oct 2005      12 AM(3 Oct 2005 to 5 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.


4 Oct 2005       8 AM(3 Oct 2005 to 5 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.


6 Oct 2005       9 PM(5 Oct 2005 to 7 Oct 2005) Sun Oppos 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.


7 Oct 2005       6 PM(6 Oct 2005 to 8 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.


8 Oct 2005       4 PM(17 Sep 2005 to 15 Oct 2005) Mars Qucnx Asc

This astrological influence (Mars Qucnx Asc) also occurred on 24 Sep 2005 (peak date). Please refer to this date.


8 Oct 2005           (7 Oct 2005 to 29 Oct 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 Oct 2005       6 PM(7 Oct 2005 to 9 Oct 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.


10 Oct 2005      8 AM(9 Oct 2005 to 11 Oct 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.


10 Oct 2005      8 AM(9 Oct 2005 to 11 Oct 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.


11 Oct 2005      7 AM(10 Oct 2005 to 12 Oct 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.


11 Oct 2005      5 PM(10 Oct 2005 to 12 Oct 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.


12 Oct 2005      1 AM(11 Oct 2005 to 13 Oct 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.


13 Oct 2005          (12 Oct 2005 to 31 Oct 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.


13 Oct 2005      5 PM(12 Oct 2005 to 14 Oct 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.


15 Oct 2005     10 AM(14 Oct 2005 to 16 Oct 2005) Ven Sxtil 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!


16 Oct 2005      1 AM(15 Oct 2005 to 17 Oct 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!


17 Oct 2005      9 PM(17 Oct 2005 to 18 Oct 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.


19 Oct 2005      5 AM(18 Oct 2005 to 20 Oct 2005) Merc Conj Ven

        Loving thoughts and appreciative words benefit both casual and more significant relationships. Expressing love and beauty is the theme now. You will not want to talk about or focus on anything heavy or unsettling. Write a love note, watch a light romantic comedy, make something beautiful with your hands, design a garden or a quilt, and receive affection graciously!


19 Oct 2005      5 AM(18 Oct 2005 to 20 Oct 2005) Merc Trine 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.


20 Oct 2005      8 AM(19 Oct 2005 to 21 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.


20 Oct 2005      1 PM(19 Oct 2005 to 21 Oct 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!


20 Oct 2005      6 PM(16 Oct 2005 to 24 Oct 2005) Mars Sxtil 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!


22 Oct 2005      8 AM(21 Oct 2005 to 23 Oct 2005) Ven Qucnx 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.


22 Oct 2005      7 PM(22 Oct 2005 to 23 Oct 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.


23 Oct 2005      6 PM(22 Oct 2005 to 24 Oct 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.


23 Oct 2005      6 PM(22 Oct 2005 to 24 Oct 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!


26 Oct 2005     11 PM(26 Oct 2005 to 27 Oct 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.


27 Oct 2005     12 AM(26 Oct 2005 to 27 Oct 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.


27 Oct 2005      9 AM(26 Oct 2005 to 28 Oct 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.


27 Oct 2005          (6 Oct 2005 to 15 Nov 2005) nep sxtil ura

        This is a time of heightened imaginative inspiration and unusual psychic or paranormal experiences. If you work in an artistic or creative field, you directly access a source of fresh and unusual imagery which can revitalize your work. If you are normally very concrete-minded, rational, and pragmatic, you may find yourself dreaming solutions to work problems or having extraordinary dream experiences that expand your thinking considerably. You may also be drawn to study spiritual, esoteric, or paranormal subjects, or be introduced to a person who really wakes you up to dimensions of the world you were previously unaware of.

Positive Potentials:

        Gentle awakening of your higher spiritual centers. Activated intuitive and psychic potentials. Expanded sensitivity and empathy for the world around you.

Negative Potentials:

        Very little of a negative nature is associated with this, but a hardened heart and cynical mind may not be able to perceive the gift or open to the opportunity of this time.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Find a like-minded friend or group to share your experiences with and/or to do inner work and spiritual investigation together. Record your dreams, sketch the images and fantasies that come to you, or begin a journal in which you record your own conversation with a higher source. Let yourself "channel" information, ideas, and wisdom, without censoring or immediately evaluating it. Then, pick it up later and decide how meaningful it may be.


28 Oct 2005     12 PM(27 Oct 2005 to 29 Oct 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.


29 Oct 2005      4 AM(28 Oct 2005 to 30 Oct 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.


29 Oct 2005          (28 Oct 2005 to 7 Dec 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 Oct 2005      3 AM(29 Oct 2005 to 31 Oct 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.


30 Oct 2005          (29 Oct 2005 to 22 Nov 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.


31 Oct 2005          (30 Oct 2005 to 25 Nov 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.


31 Oct 2005     11 AM(28 Oct 2005 to 3 Nov 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.


31 Oct 2005     11 AM(28 Oct 2005 to 3 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?


1 Nov 2005       6 AM(31 Oct 2005 to 2 Nov 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.


3 Nov 2005       1 AM(2 Nov 2005 to 4 Nov 2005) Merc Sqr Nep

        Minor misunderstandings, communication foul-ups, or not seeing the obvious can cause a bit of confusion. Check and recheck your figures, or put off important legal or mundane matters for another day. It's a much better time to let the muse inspire you with interesting ideas than to carry on business.


4 Nov 2005       8 PM(2 Nov 2005 to 7 Nov 2005) Mars Sxtil Mars

        You are highly motivated, energized, and eager to do and to accomplish now, especially if you can determine your own pace and course. Your efforts tend to succeed because you act with an extra measure of confidence, certainty, and verve. This is an ideal time to take on daunting challenges that you might back away from on other days. Satisfying work and friendly competition is featured.


4 Nov 2005       9 PM(2 Nov 2005 to 7 Nov 2005) Mars Oppos 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.


5 Nov 2005       2 AM(4 Nov 2005 to 6 Nov 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!


6 Nov 2005      12 AM(5 Nov 2005 to 7 Nov 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.


7 Nov 2005       4 PM(6 Nov 2005 to 9 Nov 2005) Merc Sxtil 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.


7 Nov 2005       9 PM(6 Nov 2005 to 8 Nov 2005) Sun Conj Ven

        Your personal magnetism is activated and you easily attract what you need or want at this time. Friendliness and a sweet attitude eases all situations, and all social occasions are highly favored. You radiate love, charm, and your own unique beauty through whatever you do. A significant and very positive friendship or love alliance can be initiated now.


7 Nov 2005       9 PM(6 Nov 2005 to 8 Nov 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.


9 Nov 2005           (27 Sep 2005 to 7 Dec 2005) Plu Conj Asc

        This is a period of fateful endings and beginnings.

        Deep transformational forces are at work within you, aiming to reshape how you project yourself into the world and come across to others. False facades, pretenses, and immature behavior (based on receiving others' approval at the expense of deep honesty and integrity) can no longer be maintained. If you habitually shrink or dissemble in order to get along with people, you may be surprised at the intensity of the forces you feel welling up from within; you can no longer tolerate such self-disregard. The ways you manipulate people or allow yourself to be manipulated are exposed, and this can lead to some mighty struggles. Long-buried or suppressed energies will emerge to be dealt with, both in times of deep self confrontation and in encounters with others. Unexamined compulsive behavior which masks your true self and your wholeness can be reworked or cleared away now, enabling you to meet the world from a much more honest and self-empowered position.

Positive Potentials:

        Renewed energy, vitality, and freedom from old masks and stifling pretenses. Reclaiming disowned power.

Negative Potentials:

        If you are unwilling to do the soul work required or to make substantive changes in how you relate to the world, you will further suppress the process that is trying to happen, leading to a more volcanic crisis later on. Intense power struggles.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Spend some time alone or in a therapeutic environment working on the issues that are arising now. Be thorough, even ruthless, with the deep functional or life-denying patterns you've developed, while recognizing that they once served you well. Don't be afraid to evolve! What is dying or trying to be shed are ways of being that hide who and what you really are.

        Engage in deeper dialogues with the people in your life who may want to keep the old game going, and lovingly but firmly explain that the rules are changing. Remain true to your renewed sense of personal integrity, letting others go through whatever changes they may need to in order to rebalance.


9 Nov 2005           (26 Sep 2005 to 1 Feb 2007) Plu 1st H.

        You are in a profoundly transformative period during which your entire self-image and way of projecting yourself onto the world will be reshaped. On a physical level, you may drastically alter your appearance, undergoing a total makeover. On a social level, there may be periods of withdrawal and isolation in order to deeply examine many facets of your life. The masks you wear and the patterns of relating that you've developed in order to make your way in the world and be accepted socially are up for an overhaul. You may lose some naivete or some cherished notions about yourself, but can gain a more honest and empowered sense of yourself. Many things may "die" during this cycle, or be fatefully removed from your life, including relationships or physical surroundings, but especially falsehoods you've projected onto others or believed about yourself. Revealing who you really are and reclaiming your power of self-determination is what this is all about.


9 Nov 2005      10 AM(8 Nov 2005 to 10 Nov 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 Nov 2005      12 PM(8 Nov 2005 to 10 Nov 2005) Ven Trine 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.


10 Nov 2005      4 PM(9 Nov 2005 to 11 Nov 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.


12 Nov 2005      6 PM(11 Nov 2005 to 13 Nov 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.


13 Nov 2005      8 PM(12 Nov 2005 to 14 Nov 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.


14 Nov 2005          (10 Nov 2005 to 19 Nov 2005) Jup Sxtil Nep

        Practical considerations and material concerns diminish in importance now, and spiritual, idealistic, and humanitarian impulses come to the fore. There is also an emphasis on joining forces with people who share these interests, so you may become involved with a group devoted to spiritual development, or to the uplifting and improvement of conditions for others. You may be meeting new people, perhaps from a different background than your own, who help open your mind and heart, and widen your understanding of the world. Or, opportunities to travel to an especially intriguing place may arise. You are open to just about anything right now, which is why you are attracting these opportunities. And for the most part, you will be able to integrate and use what you learn and experience to enrich your daily life and relationships.

        You do have more of a tendency to splurge on luxury or nonessential items, though, and to become a bit lax when it comes to work or the mundane details of life.

Positive Potentials:

        Positive expectations, belief in good outcomes, hope, and faith increase, helping to bring about desired results. Spiritual life flourishes in the company of other seekers. Generosity, compassion, and empathy increase.

Negative Potentials:

        Any tendencies toward passivity, denial of difficult truths, or over-reliance on luck or providence increases.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        This is such a benign influence that there's not much likelihood of difficulties or imbalances arising from it, but it would be easy to allow the opportunities for benefit to pass by. If you are able to translate your idealism or compassion into practical action, service, or tangible expression, then do so. Small gestures done with real kindness can mean a lot!


18 Nov 2005      3 AM(17 Nov 2005 to 19 Nov 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.


19 Nov 2005     11 AM(18 Nov 2005 to 20 Nov 2005) Merc Sxtil MC

This astrological influence (Merc Sxtil MC) also occurred on 7 Nov 2005 (peak date). Please refer to this date.


20 Nov 2005          (15 Nov 2005 to 24 Nov 2005) Jup Sxtil Sat

        There are positive developments in those areas of your life in which you have been focused, dedicated, and doing foundational work. The theme is broadening and expanding from a secure base. There may be opportunities to travel for business or educational purposes or expanded professional opportunities. Having your work reach a wider audience or long-range financial advantages are some of the other possibilities.

        Long-standing difficulties can be eased or considerably improved now as well, because you invite assistance by being more open to it and more allowing of divergent options and opinions. An approach to your problem that you may have dismissed or been too afraid to examine until now may be just the path to freedom you've been needing.

Positive Potentials:

        Balanced forces of optimism and practicality; confidence with substance to back it up. Realizable goals. Working to improve and upgrade a situation without needing to overthrow the existing structure. Business and financial growth.

Negative Potentials:

        None is implied.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        The only recommendation here is to trust your instincts, which are very good now, and to follow through on the promising opportunities presented.


20 Nov 2005      2 AM(18 Nov 2005 to 21 Nov 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.


21 Nov 2005     11 PM(20 Nov 2005 to 22 Nov 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.


22 Nov 2005      7 AM(21 Nov 2005 to 23 Nov 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.


22 Nov 2005      8 AM(21 Nov 2005 to 23 Nov 2005) Ven Oppos 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.


23 Nov 2005          (21 Nov 2005 to 14 Dec 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.


23 Nov 2005      1 AM(22 Nov 2005 to 24 Nov 2005) Merc Sqr Nep

This astrological influence (Merc Sqr Nep) also occurred on 3 Nov 2005 (peak date). Please refer to this date.


24 Nov 2005      5 AM(22 Nov 2005 to 25 Nov 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.


24 Nov 2005      5 AM(22 Nov 2005 to 25 Nov 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 Nov 2005          (25 Nov 2005 to 13 Dec 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.


26 Nov 2005      6 AM(25 Nov 2005 to 27 Nov 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".


26 Nov 2005      7 AM(25 Nov 2005 to 27 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.


28 Nov 2005          (23 Nov 2005 to 28 Nov 2006) Jup 11th H.

        New friendships and social involvement based on shared interests blossom during this time. Whether you connect through the world wide web or through personal contact, reaching out beyond your usual circles and boundaries brings happiness and opens doors.

        You may be led to get involved in community improvement of some kind. Above all, this is not a time to work strictly on your own. You need others' energies and ideas, to contribute something of benefit to others, and to play with them as well!


28 Nov 2005      3 PM(27 Nov 2005 to 29 Nov 2005) Ven Oppos 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.


30 Nov 2005      1 AM(28 Nov 2005 to 1 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.


30 Nov 2005      6 AM(29 Nov 2005 to 1 Dec 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.


5 Dec 2005       8 AM(27 Nov 2005 to 23 Dec 2005) Mars Qucnx MC

        You may not be moving ahead as you'd like, or you may find that you're struggling to get things done. Hurrying, irritability with family or people at work, and a disagreeable attitude can make this a tense time. Don't try to do more than you have to, or make deadlines for yourself that you then push yourself and others to meet. Chill out a little!


5 Dec 2005       5 PM(4 Dec 2005 to 6 Dec 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.


6 Dec 2005       9 PM(5 Dec 2005 to 8 Dec 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.


7 Dec 2005       2 PM(6 Dec 2005 to 8 Dec 2005) Sun Qucnx 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.


7 Dec 2005           (6 Dec 2005 to 8 Jan 2006) 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.


8 Dec 2005      12 AM(5 Dec 2005 to 9 Dec 2005) Merc Sxtil Merc

This astrological influence (Merc Sxtil Merc) also occurred on 30 Nov 2005 (peak date). Please refer to this date.


9 Dec 2005       2 AM(8 Dec 2005 to 10 Dec 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.


9 Dec 2005       2 AM(8 Dec 2005 to 10 Dec 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.


12 Dec 2005     10 AM(11 Dec 2005 to 13 Dec 2005) Sun Qucnx 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.


12 Dec 2005      2 PM(11 Dec 2005 to 13 Dec 2005) Merc Sxtil Sun

This astrological influence (Merc Sxtil Sun) also occurred on 26 Nov 2005 (peak date). Please refer to this date.


13 Dec 2005          (12 Dec 2005 to 29 Dec 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.


14 Dec 2005      3 PM(27 Nov 2005 to 23 Dec 2005) Mars Qucnx MC

This astrological influence (Mars Qucnx MC) also occurred on 5 Dec 2005 (peak date). Please refer to this date.


14 Dec 2005      3 PM(13 Dec 2005 to 15 Dec 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.


14 Dec 2005          (13 Dec 2005 to 16 Jan 2006) 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.


15 Dec 2005      9 AM(12 Dec 2005 to 19 Dec 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.


16 Dec 2005     10 AM(15 Dec 2005 to 17 Dec 2005) Merc Sqr Nep

This astrological influence (Merc Sqr Nep) also occurred on 23 Nov 2005 (peak date). Please refer to this date.


17 Dec 2005      5 PM(16 Dec 2005 to 18 Dec 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.


19 Dec 2005      3 PM(18 Dec 2005 to 20 Dec 2005) Merc Sxtil 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.


21 Dec 2005     12 PM(20 Dec 2005 to 22 Dec 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.


23 Dec 2005      4 PM(22 Dec 2005 to 24 Dec 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.


25 Dec 2005     12 AM(24 Dec 2005 to 26 Dec 2005) Merc Qucnx 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!


25 Dec 2005      6 PM(24 Dec 2005 to 26 Dec 2005) Sun Trine 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.


26 Dec 2005          (16 July 2005 to 24 Jan 2006) Nep Sqr Ven

        During this period your sense of love is being refined and spiritualized. You may begin to have dreams of heavenly beauty, mystical feelings of oneness and soul-connection, longings for divine love or spiritual company, or very strong feelings of compassion for any suffering you encounter. You become more sensitive to others, and may be more tender, kind, and receptive to not only your own immediate family or circle, but to people and life in general.

        You are also rather inclined to fall in love with love or with some beautiful, enchanting image. You are susceptible to romantic illusions and to deceiving yourself regarding a beloved's nature, intentions, or feelings for you. Or you may engage in a relationship that involves sacrificing, serving, or "saving" the other person. You tend to confuse pity with love right now, and your emotional boundaries are not as clear. You also find yourself attracting or attracted to artists, entertainers, dreamers, visionaries, UFO enthusiasts, psychics, spiritual healers, or weirdos!

        Poetry, art, and music-making flourishes now as you are inundated with imagery and feelings that you can probably only express in artistic form.

Positive Potentials:

        Open-heartedness, awakening of the heart, appreciating your spiritual connection to all that is. Divine love, angelic love, spiritual vocation. Flowering artistically.

Negative Potentials:

        Being overly idealistic. Allowing fantasy or romanticism to overcome your better judgment regarding a beloved person, or being a martyr for love.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Even if you believe you have found true love or your "soul mate", it would be wise to maintain realistic expectations and a sense of proportion. Enjoy the feelings while recognizing that there is much fantasy which is feeding them right now. Don't give up everything for love, as a disappointment or rude awakening may follow. Practice discernment!


26 Dec 2005      2 AM(25 Dec 2005 to 27 Dec 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.


26 Dec 2005      2 AM(25 Dec 2005 to 27 Dec 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.


26 Dec 2005          (16 July 2005 to 24 Jan 2006) Nep Qucnx Mars

        Subtle undermining influences can impinge upon your ability to stay focused and bring your desires to realization. Perhaps an underlying sense of uncertainty, aimlessness, or lack of real desire hinders your ability to commit to a definite course of action. Or you may have debilitating habits, addictions, evasive or avoidant tendencies, or toxic influences in your life that need to be seen as such and eliminated as much as possible. This is a time when self-indulgence can really get you into trouble, so now is the time to clean up your act.

        Health issues can arise from chronic poor choices in diet, lifestyle, or mismanagement of energy resources. Try to determine where your energy is subtly drained or leaks away. If you are martyring yourself for a cause, you may want to reconsider this. You will need to define for yourself issues of healthy selfishness and self-preservation versus excessive caretaking or being overly involved in others' lives and dramas.

Positive Potentials:

        Softening the tension related to extreme striving, competition, and forcing one's will.

Negative Potentials:

        Fears and insecurities related to survival. Temptation to take the "easy" way or to avoid troublesome personal issues. Increased sensitivities to toxic or intoxicating substances. Maladies that are difficult to pinpoint or clearly diagnose.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Healthy, balanced living that includes rest, physical exercise, work, relationships, and attention to your spirit can offset much of the imbalances that are possible during this period.

        Be aware of what you "feed" yourself as the quality of your food, relationships, and thoughts strongly affects your physical immunity and vitality, and your ability to ward off toxic external influences of all kinds. Consciously upgrade what you take in at any level now.


26 Dec 2005      8 PM(25 Dec 2005 to 27 Dec 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.


28 Dec 2005     10 AM(27 Dec 2005 to 29 Dec 2005) Merc Qucnx 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.


29 Dec 2005      6 PM(28 Dec 2005 to 30 Dec 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.


29 Dec 2005          (29 Dec 2005 to 20 Jan 2006) 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.


29 Dec 2005     11 PM(29 Dec 2005 to 30 Dec 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.


1 Jan 2006       2 AM(31 Dec 2005 to 2 Jan 2006) 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.


1 Jan 2006       3 PM(28 Dec 2005 to 4 Jan 2006) Ven Trine Sun

This astrological influence (Ven Trine Sun) also occurred on 15 Dec 2005 (peak date). Please refer to this date.


3 Jan 2006       3 PM(2 Jan 2006 to 4 Jan 2006) 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!


4 Jan 2006       5 AM(3 Jan 2006 to 5 Jan 2006) 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.


4 Jan 2006           (29 Dec 2005 to 11 Jan 2006) Jup Qucnx Ura

        It would be easy for you to jump the gun right now. You experience erratic bursts of exuberance or the urge to make progressive changes that are not really in sync with the people around you. You may be introduced to a concept or an expansive opportunity that can play a positive role in your future, and if your enthusiasm inspires you to act now, results will be mixed - some quite successful, others a flop.

        You also are in an expansive phase in any group, organization, or collective of which you are apart. Unexpected growth leads to challenges.

Positive Potentials:

        Openness to new ideas, visions, philosophies, and techniques.

Negative Potentials:

        Overly optimistic assessment of new techniques or opportunities. Exuberant foolishness can lead to a fall.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Allow futuristic plans to develop and ripen, drawing inspiration from them now without jumping right in.


6 Jan 2006       1 AM(5 Jan 2006 to 7 Jan 2006) 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.


6 Jan 2006       1 AM(5 Jan 2006 to 7 Jan 2006) Sun Oppos 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.


6 Jan 2006      11 AM(5 Jan 2006 to 7 Jan 2006) Merc Trine 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.


7 Jan 2006       5 AM(6 Jan 2006 to 8 Jan 2006) 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.


7 Jan 2006       1 PM(6 Jan 2006 to 8 Jan 2006) 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.


7 Jan 2006       1 PM(6 Jan 2006 to 8 Jan 2006) 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.


16 Jan 2006          (21 Dec 2005 to 5 Feb 2006) Ura Qucnx MC

        Some uncontrollable, chaotic elements can make this time period a roller coaster ride at work, or in your financial affairs. Things seem to be happening quickly then cease altogether, and it can be difficult to find your rhythm or know what to expect from day to day. A new job, different duties on the job, or a new boss or co-worker may work out well after a period of adjustment. If you enjoy troubleshooting, relish the challenge of meeting unexpected developments as they arise, and don't mind an accelerated pace, you can negotiate this passage rather well; otherwise, it's apt to be stressful.

        On the other hand, you may be the one who is changing and/or erratic regarding your goals, ambitions, and direction. Unconventional styles, methods, or subjects gain appeal for you now, and you must do something different (from what you've done before or from mainstream culture).

Positive Potentials:

        Changing values or attitudes towards material things can liberate you to follow a new path. Increased freedom in your work.

Negative Potentials:

        Sudden job loss or increased stress regarding work and finance. One's mentor or well-respected leader loses credibility, authority, or stature. Losing position, or controversy regarding your public standing and reputation.

Remedies and Suggestions:

        Radical, extreme, all-or-nothing solutions are suspect now. Beware of burning your bridges. Try to ease your way into new circumstances rather than charging ahead like lightning. Recognize that much of what occurs now is not personal, even  though it directly affects you. Larger, impersonal forces are at work which you can rail at and resist or try to flow with. Find ways to vent and release tension, including physical exercise, talking to friends who are uninvolved in the current drama, and laughing at the absurdities and reversals life presents.
