The moon in Cancer for the first part of the day and then in Leo for the second makes for a fun split in the mood of the day. If they were television channels, the Cancer moon would be HGTV and the Leo moon would be Bravo or HBO. The day will hold programming that follows suit.

Summer is not officially here, but it's here in spirit as the sun crosses into Gemini. This is the solar station of making new connections, having new experiences and talking yourself into being the person you want to be. It never happens alone. Branch out, hold your friends close, and make the acquaintance of the people who interest you.
At one time, an emblematic or heraldic design impressed into wax put a stylish and official finish on agreements while sticking the paper together -- thus the term "seal the deal." That's what you need to do today, the last day of the Taurus sun of 2015. Taurus is the sign of finance and appetites of all kinds. This is your day to "get it done...Read more
On the first full day of the second Mercury retrograde of the year, you may notice that it's not quite as easy to get your point across. Good. You'll be more articulate for the challenge. When the words aren't enough, consider the whole picture: body language, tone, inflection and, most importantly, the eyes. What do the windows to the soul ...Read more
The Mercury retrograde in Gemini will extend the messenger planet's stay in this realm by several weeks. This is Mercury's first home and therefore an auspicious place for the retrograde to occur. Worst-case scenario: The conversation takes unexpected and emotional turns. You can handle this and will even be better for it.

This is a time to try something you've never tried. It could be your new favorite thing. As adults, it is easy to grow stale in our interests. Instead, align with child-like energies going forward. The new moon in Taurus centers on giving a fresh start to Venus-related interests, including art, culture and the appetites that make us feel most ...Read more
Neptune is sometimes referred to as the higher octave of Venus. These loving forces combine in a harmonious water-sign trine to amplify their soulful qualities. Love is a muse, singing songs through our hearts, stirring up emotions and making us uncomfortable until we're inspired to reach out, connect and share in hopes of easing the ache.
Aggressive energy doesn't have to be negative energy. Mars and Saturn are playing tug-of-war to remind us that there are times when it's appropriate to stand up and defend your territory. In the majority of cases, drawing the boundary and pointing out where it is will be all that's necessary.

The conflict between desire and responsibility is an age-old struggle that to some degree affects us every day, though the current Mars and Saturn opposition makes it seem more pronounced. The right thing to do is often not the easiest or most appealing course of action, and yet it's the only one that won't end in regret.

The moon in intuitive Pisces has psychic wisdom to impart. Trust yourself. Trust that things don't have to make intellectual sense to be true. Other people's opinions (even the smart ones) will not apply to you today. Think of them as noise that needs to be tuned out so you can hear your internal voice.

The Pisces moon tends to keep people awake thinking. Big, small, not thoughts at all -- the mental wheels turn and turn under the Pisces moon. Solutions are temporary, and fixes are, too. Therefore, do not seek answers. The wise are never satisfied by them, anyway. Seek better questions.

Dignified people restrain themselves, while childish types chase every whim. So what's your whim? With the crossing of Mars into Gemini territory, the energy it takes to be dignified may not be worth the effort. "Wit is the sudden marriage of ideas which, before their union, were not perceived to have any relation." -- Mark Twain

Mothers. They're what all humans have in common. This Mother's Day falls under the guidance of the Aquarius moon. Challenge yourself to think beyond who your mother is to you, and consider the woman she is (or was) in the world. Before she was your mother, she was a girl with hopes and dreams, some of which may have included you!

We all have an idealized self and an actual self. As Mercury, in its storm, squares off with Neptune in Pisces, the way we wish to be may clash with our actual behaviors and actions. Falling short is part of being human. Extend yourself a little compassion and try again. Each moment is a new chance.

When the messenger planet slows down before going retrograde, it's said that Mercury enters its "storm" period, which is where we are now until Monday, when Mercury will go retrograde. The next three days are lucky for wrapping up projects, tying loose ends and finalizing deals. New ventures aren't favored and will likely get off to a slow ...Read more
Cancer, the first water sign of the zodiac, is an emotional force like the sea from which the crabs emerge, big surf breaking in loud and soft sounds, all at once relaxing and terrifying. Venus leaves the friendly conversation of Gemini today for Cancer's promise of deeper levels of intimacy.

In yoga, the triangle pose, or Trikonasana, is unlike most other yoga poses in that it requires keeping the eyes open to maintain balance. The cosmic triangle formed by the Taurus sun and Pluto in Capricorn offers a similar challenge. Find a point of focus in your sky-high dreams while grounding yourself. Reach up and down at the same time.
You can only love another person to their capacity to receive love. The rest will overflow. Avoid doing too much to prove your love. Efforts wasted in one direction could do so much to improve the world if aimed in a different direction. This Cinco de Mayo message was brought to you by the Sagittarius moon.

In Hollywood, it is generally accepted that no matter how much red-carpet excess goes into a party, the best part is what happens at the more intimate after-party. Last night's full Scorpio moon was a shindig, and not in the way of a social celebration, but in the way of life events. Today is the perfect time to regroup with your favorite ...Read more
Have you ever seen a film in which the entire world gets blown to bits, and yet you leave the theater unable to remember any major plot points? The Scorpio full moon isn't that. It's more like the art film about nothing much that you can't stop thinking about for years to come. The Scorpio full moon is about the small big events -- no ...Read more
