Autumnal Equinox

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

As the Libra sun heralds the autumnal equinox, appreciate the pleasure of the other as a balance for autumn's bounty.

Mercury and Saturn Throw Shade

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Mercury and Saturn throw shade in the sky today, suggesting that our outlook is more susceptible to influence. And because we are only human, wired with a stronger impetus to avoid pain than to seek happiness, fear will have a longer shadow and things will seem much more worrisome than they are. So hang on through this very brief storm.

Jupiter and Neptune Square of Social Science

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Among the recent discoveries proven by social science is one that many have long sensed: Humans typically don't know themselves nearly as well as they think they do. So if, under this dicey square of Jupiter and Neptune, you guess a thing will make you happy and it doesn't, you certainly won't be alone.

Mercury and the Cricket Moon

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Among the tiniest ears of the animal kingdom are those of a cricket, which happen to very conveniently situated under their knees. A group of chirping crickets is called an orchestra, and maybe to a hungry frog they sound as sweet as one. Gemini moon trine communicative Mercury blurs the tones between good and bad noise.

Mars, Pluto and Other People's Feelings

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

From the moons of Jupiter to the dark energy that makes up most of the universe, there are plenty of real things that we take on faith because they are so tricky to observe, if we can at all. Also in this category: other people's feelings, which we'd be wise to believe in and take seriously under the influence of this power trine of Mars and ...Read more

Saturn Hits Snooze

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

The snooze button isn't just for alarm clocks. You can hit the snooze on just about anything today. It will be easier than ever to find a suitable procrastination loophole as Saturn comes to a screeching halt and reverses direction. Don't worry. By the end of the week, progress will resume and then start to accelerate. "Do it now" will become ...Read more

Saturn's Last Retro Day

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

A message for the last day of this Saturn retrograde: Once a thing is broken (for instance, a heart), you don't have to worry anymore about it getting broken. You can appreciate it in more dimensions -- what it is and what it was -- without hope it will become perfect or fear it will get ruined. You'll accept it, yield to its...Read more

Asteroid Opposes Mercury

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Nothing gets to the heart of the matter, and makes everyone uncomfortable in the process, like expressing great shame. Accidental confessions are a mess. But purposeful and difficult sharing, done with control, can be the stuff of art and maybe even genius. The Mercury/Chiron opposition advises, "Don't be too quick to judge."

Warrior Moon Insights

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Fearlessness is nothing to commend, as it's akin to oblivion and ignorance. Courage is the highly commendable quality that produces similar results, but with conscience. Fearlessness produces zero soul growth. Courage is an essential ingredient to the soul's development. These distinctions are highlighted by the warrior moon.

Cosmic Chorus of Angels

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

This rotund Pisces moon represents a spiritual outpouring. Even the nonbelievers and spiritually disinclined can feel the electric tug of something beyond the physical realm. Furthermore, Mercury enters Libra, and Venus follows a few hours later, to lend their harmony to the chorus of angels featured in today's soundtrack.

Friday the 13th, Spooky Full Moon

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

While Scorpio, the second water sign, is the energy associated with life and death, Pisces, the final water sign, moves these ideas forward to a bodiless realm, where existence moves through life and death without noting the difference. This is why the full Pisces moon this Friday the 13th is the perfect setting for spooks.

Jupiter Signals Power Outages

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

The expansively named moralist John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton, First Baron Acton, suggested that power corrupts, and "absolute power corrupts absolutely." Can one extrapolate then that imagined power corrupts imaginatively? Mars squares Jupiter under a fanciful Aquarius moon, cautioning us against unfounded power moves.

Quincunx Quiz Show

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

If only you could go where you want to go, be where you want to be, do what you want to do... but nope! So what's stopping you and why? That's the crux of the cosmic question on this day with four lunar quincunxes in a row. (A quincunx occurs when luminaries are 150 degrees apart.) Keep asking until you've identified the blockage.

Carrot and Stick Opposition

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

The sun in Virgo pulls across the sky from Neptune in Pisces, creating a cosmic opposition akin to a carrot tied to a stick held over the snout of the workhorse. Every step taken pushes the whole scene forward, carrot and all. The distance between appetite and fulfilment will always be the same until someone cuts a string and changes the game....Read more

Mars, Saturn and Selfies

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Mars in Virgo, the sign of perfection, and Saturn in Capricorn, the sign of competition and power, arrange favorably for those who endeavor to put their best face forward. The cosmic warning here comes from the cautionary tale of Narcissus, which suggests that he is still, to this day, admiring himself in a pool of the underworld.

Diminishing Cosmic Impressions

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Three major aspects on the same cosmic stage today dim the effect of each. This will be personified in people who, in general, will be very hard to impress. No matter what you show them, they've been there, seen it, done it. Anyway, why try to impress people at all when it's so much better to just experience them? Relax and share the moment.

The Poetry of Planetary Opposition

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

The Mercury and Neptune opposition is the cosmic alignment that most helps us get to the truth and nothing but the truth. Keep in mind that the very sweetest truths are to be experienced instead of processed through the crudeness of verbiage. The best poetry will be nonverbal.

Planetary Traffic Jam

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

This is a rare level of cosmic activity -- an intersection of planetary agendas. It's hard to know what to pay attention to. Pretend like you're in a rush-hour-traffic flow. Stay focus and patient. Mercury and Jupiter warn against talking too much and listening too little. The sun and Saturn turbo-boost work efforts. Venus and Pluto provide ...Read more

Trine of Avoiding Trouble

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

The trine of Mercury and Saturn makes good points. Those who don't seek trouble usually avoid it. Those who don't realize that trouble is what they are seeking have no problem finding it. In fact, trouble chases them. It's a good reason not to allow oneself to get too bored. Trouble can't bear to be around people who have better things to do. ...Read more

Venus, Neptune and Romantic Illusion

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

The opposition of Venus and Neptune plays tricks with our emotional vision. At this time, the illusion of romance becomes sloppy, like a badly timed magician unable to hide the strings and magnets. The good news is that true love doesn't require a trick. Its magic is real. Whatever remains after the flash pots have gone off can be counted upon...Read more
