Mercury Retrograde

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

There's a lot going on when two people engage in conversation. We think of what to say, listen, adjust our body language subconsciously and consciously, all while staying aware of the environment in our periphery. It's no wonder some find interactions stressful. Mercury goes retrograde today, introverting some of social interactions.

Mercury, Venus and Jupiter Rally for Self-Compassion

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

The alignment of Mercury, Venus and Jupiter suggests that helping hearts are usually hearts that have received help in the past. No good can come from a lack of self-compassion. Being kind to yourself is not selfishness. Even if it were, you probably aren't in a position to call it, as you're too close to the problem to have an objective view....Read more

Martian Heartache Songs

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Disappointments accompany this square of Mars and Neptune. Be quick to listen, slow to speak. That's the magic combination that will lead to better relationships. Our fear that the other person won't give us the chance to be heard may indeed be well-founded, but don't discount the power of listening. Generous listening can heal hearts.

Practice, Experience and the Virgo Sun

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Bottom line, if it looks like you're trying too hard, you won't seem like the expert, and the deal will be lost. Of course, the best way not to try too hard is to be genuinely impervious to the situation because you've seen and done it so many times. Practice and experience is the way. This message was brought to you by the fresh Virgo solar ...Read more

Martian Confidence Challenge

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Confidence isn't a one-size-fits-all-situations kind of a deal. Confidence is area specific. That's why even the most self-assured people can be knocked off their game with a scene change: Think fish out of water. Today, the alignment of Mars and Saturn invites us to the challenge of building our confidence up from scratch in a new arena.

Virgo Sun Warning

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

With the Virgo sun's focus on perfection and details, it's important to avoid becoming obsessive. Obsession is a distortion of thought. The more one dwells on a thought pattern, the more ingrained it becomes. One becomes closed off to other points of view. The more certain of his rightness a person is, the more likely he is to be wrong.

Fantasy Moon Conjunction

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

What is the name for the particular kind of self-inflicted torture of devouring someone's super-awesome social media profile? Well, there should be a similar but opposite name for the glee of gobbling up the idiocy in the profile of someone you despise, right? The alignment of the Pisces moon and Neptune will help you think of one.

Full Moon in Aquarius

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

The full moon in Aquarius reflects the generous heart space of the Leo sun, bringing up questions along the way. If you've given your whole self to another, do you still need to filter what you say to this person? Should you do what comes naturally (authenticity) or should you center all priorities on your one and only (selflessness)?

Trine Theme Continues

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

There are many problems that fade from neglect. Ignore them and they go away. Refuse to call them "problems" at all and they become something else entirely -- mere situations or even non-issues. It's a strategy that can work as Venus and Pluto form an auspicious trine to help us focus ourselves on the big picture and what really matters.

Trines and Expectation

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Often the best expectation to cling to is no expectation at all. Preconceived ideas about how we want it all to go will only limit our ability to use and enjoy how things actually happen. The solar trine of Uranus spurs us to let go of what we think will occur to make room to interpret the full majesty of what actually unfolds.

Capricorn Lunar Wisdom

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Resentment is an emotion typical of people who think they're in a lower position that renders them unable or disempowered to defend themselves. You can avoid racking up resentments by raising your status. The power-conscious Capricorn moon encourages this, as nothing ruins the fun faster than unresolved issues.

Venus and Neptune Opposition

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Ask any magician: Mastery is a matter of controlling focus. The great artists and lovers of the world would agree, and so would the athletes, moguls, teachers, parents and leaders. Focus brings things into being. Love-guide Venus and dream-weaver Neptune play tug of war across the heavens, urging us to be careful what we focus on.

Painting With Saturn

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Saturn goes direct then promptly squares off with Venus, as if to say, "Don't get too comfortable too fast." Life's lessons layer like paint. Each coat needs a chance to dry and cure before you can put the next one on, or it all becomes a goopy mess. Take your time. Don't do everything at once. Make efforts; then wait for them to take.

At the End of the Saturn Retrograde

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

The last day of the Saturn retrograde reminds us there is no person more important than another. However, some are more notable or key to the moment, and therefore it may be appropriate to offer up special attention or resources. Serve, accommodate or acquiesce, all the while understanding your inherent equality.

Transcendent Lunar Travel

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Love will lift you to the highest peaks of experience. Or is it great beauty that will do this? Or the experience of sublime art, deep truth or religious ecstasy? Bottom line: The vehicle of transcendence isn't the same for all people. As you await your ride, the moon in Sagittarius suggests you keep an open mind as to the make and model of ...Read more
