Meaning Under the Mercury and Mars Opposition

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

During this Mercury and Mars opposition, some will be fascinated by activities that are not so meaningful, such as games. Others are into what's meaningful but not so fascinating, like time with loved ones doing chores. It's all pleasant enough, while lending appreciation for the rare activities that are simultaneously meaningful and engaging....Read more

Message from Mercury

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Mercury's angle to Saturn brings up the topic of preoccupation. Obsessions begin innocently enough, with a vague idea, plus an investment of feeling, ever-increasing until the thing is so laced in emotion it dominates all thought. Not everyone can obsess. It's a talent really, if you focus on the right things -- things that benefit more than ...Read more

The Message of a Mercury Conflict

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Mercury and Pluto square off to highlight many ways to miscommunicate about sensitive, difficult and private matters.

Solar Curiosity Peak

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

With this sun to Mars situation, curiosity is king. Incuriousness is not only repellant, but also it could be taken as an insult or judged as a clue to inferior intelligence. Incuriousness is often more about trust and fear though. Curiosity only survives alongside some degree of safety. It takes confidence to ask. To invite curiosity, create ...Read more

Antagonizing Moon

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

As the Libra moon antagonizes Jupiter and Pluto, remember that no one is pathetic for suffering. There is no shame in having feelings, as they can't be helped. Sorting them can be exhausting. For anyone going through a passage of emotional intensity, an acknowledgment as to the amount of work that this entails could mean the world.

New Moon Musings

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

The sun and moon converge in Virgo for the new moon pause, a catch of breath, a measured exhale in the dark. Maybe someday we will know our place in the greater design. For now, the energy of Virgo urges us to bring our quality of character, our virtue or, as the Greeks elegantly named it, our "habitual excellence" to all things.

Virgo Sun and Moon Convergence

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

In a melodrama, the enemy is a villain who swoops in from the outside to ruin things for the good people. In real life, the enemies are already close -- in your innermost circle, or inside you. There's increasing intensity on perfectionistic and critical tendencies as the Virgo sun and moon head toward convergence. Go easy with that inside ...Read more

Venus Issues Warning

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Inside of each person is a desire to rise above the fear and uncertainty that come with our humanness. People feel superhuman when associating with those who purport to be beyond human vulnerabilities and hardships, though none actually are. The Venus and Uranus square warns against giving too much influence to charismatic leaders.

Trine of Radical Acceptance

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

The symbol of the yin and yang is a swirl of light and darkness in equal parts. What completes the picture is a dot of darkness in the light and a drop of light in the darkness, symbolizing the balance and duality that keeps the wheel of the world turning. The position of the sun to Pluto recalls the power of radical acceptance of all that is....Read more

Jupiter Directive

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Maybe there are givers and there are takers, and tendencies in that regard that last a lifetime. Also, many people change.

This comes down from Big Daddy Jupiter just as he is changing direction.

Neptune Amplifies

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

There's a particular kind of math that applies to relationships in which one and one almost never equals two.

The sun and Neptune will amplify and stretch those feelings flying between people today.

Mars Reversal

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

When caught outside in a lightning storm, the safest place to go is inside a car. If struck, the car might not fare so well, but the person inside will likely be fine.

Venus in Leo Loves a Grand Entrance

Whether the group is as big as the Roman Empire or as small as a kindergarten Little League team, there's a timeline with a beginning, middle and an end. Often, we get to decide the end, or at least our exit, which may come out of a sense of outgrowing the situation. This first day of Venus in Leo is an opportunity to make a new entrance.

Pleasure, Happiness and Mercury in Libra

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Happiness isn't pleasure, and pleasure isn't happiness. You won't find happiness seeking pleasure -- or even seeking happiness. Happiness is a bonus product of certain pursuits or a state that you happen to find yourself in. Pleasure, as Mercury in Libra reminds, can be sought and landed, though its rule is always short-term.
