Mars and Scorpio Winds

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

"Wind follows wind," says the I Ching, and with Mars now flying straight in the realm of Scorpio our nature is both the wind and the wind behind it. As we keep up our efforts to do as we say and say as we do, major momentum picks up in the Scorpion sea -- the likes of which can sail a ship from shore to shore, continent to continent.

Mars, Mercury and 'Why?'

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Why we do things matters. When you change the answer to "why?" it changes the very nature and thrust of motivation. Today the big machine of motivation slows down, comes to a complete stop and then changes direction as Mars straightens out in Scorpio. Ask why, and then ask again. Mercury enters Cancer to urge us even deeper into the answer.

Jupiter and Pluto in Harmony

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

The current alignment of Jupiter and Pluto is significant for its super-optimism injection. If it were a movie moment, it would be when Annie impresses Franklin D. Roosevelt by belting out, "The sun will come out tomorrow." What dark belief do you hold that could use some emotional sunshine and musical hope on it?

Lunar Backdrop Destruction

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

This Pisces moon combines forces with other water-sign influences to tear a hole in the backdrop of life. This tear is just enough to let us know that what's been constructed is illusory, designed to entertain and mollify. There's more behind it. You don't have to go there; it's brave enough just to realize that a bigger arena exists.

Moon of Friendship

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

The Aquarius moon forms a trine with Mercury in Gemini, pumping up the conversation energy with air-sign effervescence. It's like adding the bubbles to the syrup water and making soda. The sparkle and fizz is interesting for a time, but will grow flat if left out for too long. The lesson: Drink life in its fresh-pour form.

Buffet Moon

The domestic Cancer sun and social Aquarius moon suggest putting the food (and the emotional sustenance that's even more important than it) out for the others to pick and ...Read more

Earth Moon

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

The earthy Capricorn moon connects us to our roots -- not always pretty. Roots are, by nature, a complicated network of spindly cells forming separate tendrils reaching into the earth to get what they need for the whole entity to live. It's harder for the roots. So many obstacles to work around while branches and flowers need only to turn up ...Read more

Full Moon Afterglow

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Imagine sitting down to watch a cloud formation that doesn't appear to be moving.

Solstice Countdown

Moon and Neptune Trine

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

The Scorpio moon angles Neptune in Pisces to stir up the soul's poetry. Romantic feelings, artistic inclinations, deep wisdom and more are there to draw from, should you take things in that direction. Also, "that direction" might be more or less unavoidable.
