Entertainment / Horoscopes /

A lucky trine of the moon in Taurus and Mercury in global-minded Sagittarius sprinkles some practical magic over the first day of Kwanzaa, a week-long celebration of African heritage, in particular seven principles: unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith.

Peace on Earth and Other Planets

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Santa famously keeps a list of who's naughty and who's nice, and Venus, in the early stages of Capricorn, totally supports the idea. Luckily, most who celebrate Christmas tend to be forgiving about whatever happened in the year that's mostly behind us. May the better angels prevail over a day to celebrate peace on earth, goodwill to all.

The love goddess puts on a formal gown and dances into the realm of Capricorn this Christmas Eve. Here Venus will observe matters of status, adhere to the rules and honor traditions.

Pisces Lunar Sway

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

It's not that each blade of grass has a place in the sway of the wind. The grass grows as grass does, and the wind blows as wind does, and the effect is a perfectly ordered dance. Oh, to be a part of something natural and effortless! But people's rigid minds won't let them move with the sway. The Pisces moon lends flexibility of mind and ...Read more

Mercury Direct Is Here to Help

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

People aren't born appreciating tastes that fall into the "bitter" category. Coffee, beer, leafy greens, grapefruit -- all acquired tastes, and yet, these foods are favorites for many. Bitter experiences can have a similar addictive quality. For some strange reason, we keep coming back. Mercury straightens out to help us investigate the ...Read more

Winter-Solstice Promise

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

The sun king dons his Capricorn crown... Happy winter solstice to all! Here's the paradox of the season: Sunlight is increasing, but it's still just a promise. The Capricorn sun asks us to have faith and power on. Somewhere in the cold ground, a bulb patiently pushes against the hard earth. Spring will bloom again.

Pre-Solstice Advice

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

While the Dalai Lama says, "Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace," one might assume he has more access to sacred, noise-free chambers than, say, the mother of a colicky infant. Anyway, there's a lot more easily said than done in the hours before the solstice. Peace be with you as you do your best with what you're given.

Saturn Change

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Part of being confident is knowing that you are protected if things don't go the way you anticipate or desire. The Saturn change prompts a spirit of readiness. Keep in mind that there are many means of protection that do not require strength. Distance is a defense. So is friendliness. So is cuteness. Think outside the box on the matter.

Saturn Change Pre-show

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

The study asked individuals to vividly imagine a fictional event. When asked about the event much later, many individuals mistakenly believed that the event had actually occurred. This phenomenon of memory is called "imagination inflation," and it's something to stay aware of as we get our ducks in a row before tomorrow's big Saturn change.

New-Moon Travel Blessing

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Mercury is still retrograde, so we can't expect a perfectly smooth transition from place to place during one of the biggest travel times of the year. Yet the energy of the new moon will place a kind hand on our travel arrangements. This is especially true for those who have an easygoing attitude about that which cannot be controlled.

New Moon Pregame Mindset

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

If you're wondering if you're strong enough to handle the job at hand, you're probably not... yet. The bodybuilder isn't strong, either, until she picks up the weight again and again and then adds some more weight and picks up that. It's the work that makes you strong. Get your head into it. The new moon tomorrow is the perfect time to start. ...Read more

Bird's Eye View from Mercury and Venus

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

This Mercury (retrograde) and Venus alignment in Sagittarius will be a real challenge to people who like things the way they are. Restlessness and boredom are like chickens coming home to roost. Those birds are nice enough, but do you really want to live in the same coop with them? Spread your wings. Change is inevitable.

Neptune Offers Hopeful Holiday Imaginings

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

The moon and Neptune open windows of imagination. This time of year, it can be a challenge for some to use our imaginations hopefully. If the holiday blues strike, then remember that the shadows of the spirit can only occur because there's a light source nearby. Ask for the help necessary to move in the direction of levity and bright thoughts....Read more

Mercury Solar Conjunction

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

The alignment of Mercury and the sun reminds us that everyone likes to be in cahoots with success. Far fewer will align themselves with people and situations that are unproven. It's why, if you think you have an idea, it's good to put it in motion regardless of whether or not you have anyone else's support, just to prove the concept.

Lunar Security Warning

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

It's as if we're each encased in our own ball of energy and in charge of the security of the premises, too. Some moments are an open-house situation; others are a prison lockdown situation. And everything in between is possible, too. The Libra moon urges us to work together, even as Mercury retrograde says to be mindful of whom we let in.

Venus and Neptune Confusion

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

We are born alone yet utterly dependent on others to stay alive. There is absolutely no benefit to believing we are better than the others, yet seeing as we are each the center of our own universe, our own superiority is a rather natural conclusion. The Venus and Neptune situation has us struggling with the cult of specialness.

Mars Enters Scorpio

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

Mars enters Scorpio, raising eyebrows everywhere. But are we really so shocked at what we see, or are we just pretending because it makes us look innocent? Complicated behaviors arise out of complicated situations. Before pointing at offenders, check to make sure you yourself haven't offended in some some similar way.

Leo and Virgo Lunar Feud

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

The moon shifts from Leo to Virgo in a swirl of energetic intention. Leo energy wants attention. Virgo vibes only want to do the work -- though, unfortunately, there will be no work if the Leo moon of publicity and entertainment doesn't bring it into being. It's the time to think about the symbiosis of practicality and theatricality in your ...Read more

Retrograde Advice

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

It's said that sadness is about the past, anxiety is about the future and the present is only peace. Maybe for the enlightened masters. For the rest, some degree of sadness and anxiety will be present throughout the early stages of Mercury retrograde -- and simplistic platitudes don't help. Accepting the complicated nature of life might, ...Read more
