Well, this year, you'll undergo even more transformation that will fortify you for a Grand Shift happening on the planet. Neptune and Chiron remain in Pisces. Jupiter will transit into Scorpio in October and Saturn will transit into the compatible sign Capricorn in December. That's something to look forward too, even for Cancer Sun and Rising Sign people. The North Node moves out of Virgo into Leo in May which will remind all of us to bolster our courage and speak from our hearts. We all matter.
The first two months of the year highlight Pisces. Mars and Venus join Neptune in your 1st House. We experience Venus RX in Aries/Pisces. Chiron remains in Pisces for another year. And we experience one last Solar Eclipse in Pisces in February. The North Node moves out of your polarity (Virgo) into Leo in May.
The good news is that we won't experience any Saturn-Neptune squares in 2017. And Saturn has moved far ahead of Neptune, but is still in kissing distance to Chiron (the Wounded Healer). And we won't be experiencing any Grand Mutable Squares or T-Crosses as far as I know, with Jupiter now in Libra and Saturn in the higher degrees. And Pisces will lend support to Cancer Sun and Rising Sign people who experience the brunt of Cardinal T-Crosses, squares and oppositions with Mars, Pluto, Uranus, and Jupiter.
Mars conjuncts Neptune in your 1st House the 1st week of the month and year. This could fuel your dreams provided you have one foot in reality. Or you could just blow steam. Mars is uncomfortable in a Water Sign, especially a misty-colored-memory Water Sign like Pisces. Mars paints in red strokes, not pastels. But Mars motivates you and helps you come up with an action plan. Venus joins Neptune from the 13 -17, and when these two planets hook up, the world turns glossy and glamorous. But for you, it's time to question and reassess your values.
Mercury RX in Sagittarius causes miscommunication with your career or with the public. If you're famous, people could misread you and make proclamations on social media. No matter where you turn, you appear in the spotlight. But Mercury goes Direct on the 8th. And Saturn in your 10th House might bring travel opportunities to advance your career. Maybe you get involved with a movie, or photography or you join a dance troupe. Who knows?
The Sun-Pluto conjunction lights up your 11th House of good causes. You consider joining one to help transform the world into a better place. But make sure you do this for the right reasons and not because you see others like victims and yourself as a martyr. It's perfectly okay to pursue your dreams and not entertain nightmares. This doesn't mean that you are selfish.
Mars in Pisces squares Saturn in Sagittarius (your 1st and 10th Houses) so you are at cross purpose with your self-identity and your career or public image. What can you change to improve this situation? Now, is the time to make improvements with Mars in your sign.
You get a boost from the Cancer Full Moon on the 12th. You receive comfort from motherly or tender people. But you could fall of the wagon where diet is concerned since comfort foods dance like sugar plum fairies in your thoughts. Find another outlet for self-care such as getting massage, energy medicine or joining a yoga class.
Jupiter in Libra goes RX in your 8th House of other people's resources and most of the taboo topics (death, taxes, sex, etc). It would be a good time to seek therapy for issues that have bothered you, especially in regard to other people, such as authority figures.
The Mars-Pluto Square takes place in your 2nd and 11th houses. Are you struggling with getting the attention of your peers? Do you feel like you are toiling away with your talents and everyone is ignoring you? Perhaps it is time to do something from the heart and see where that takes you. You are here to transform the planet, even if just by a small gesture. You also find the Mars-Uranus conjunction (26 -28) a bit too intense. Lay low and allow the energy to pass with the hopes that more people will awaken their spirit.
The Leo Lunar Eclipse on the 10th shines a light on your daily work, your health, and people who work for you. Are others asking to be recognized as unique individuals with the contributions they make to your life? Are you questioning service for service sake? We all want to shine and there is nothing wrong with that, Pisces. Perhaps, you will receive recognition or rewards for your service.
On the 26th, we experience a Solar Eclipse in Pisces. Having a Solar Eclipse in your 1st House marks a new beginning for you. The Moon and Sun catch up to Neptune, and later Chiron. New beginnings come to you when you forgive the past and surrender to a Higher Power. Show compassion for yourself and see your perfection in your frailties and strengths. That is what completes you.
You enjoy dreaming big during the Sun-Neptune conjunction at the beginning of the month. But you don't enjoy all the Aries energy that follows with Venus RX in Aries, the Sun conjunct Venus in Aries (25 - 31), Mercury-Uranus conjunction (27 - 28) and Jupiter square Pluto ( 26 - 31) which also represents Cardinal energy. But you will march through the third month with a dream lingering in your heart. At least Aries gives you drive and ambition even if the Sign sends hotheaded people your way.
The Virgo Full Moon on the 12th lights up your 7th House of partnerships and partners. Try not to act overly critical of yourself or your partner now. If you're single then you'll want to respect and love yourself before attracting a new partner into your life.
The Aries New Moon lights up your 2nd House of your values, gifts, and talents. You could use some spring cleaning in this area so that you can let new talents in that you have always wanted to explore. If it feels stale either revive it or let it go.
Oh-oh, Pisces, you're not going to like this chaotic month. Planets are moving direction and this leaves you standing in a Neptune fog. Thankfully, your ruling planet Neptune doesn't go RX until later in the year. But the communication planet Mercury goes RX in your communication house on the 9th. Be prepared for surreal messages and mishaps. And make sure you have your computer protection up-to-date. And don't open any strange e-mail. No, you did not win a lottery from some African country.
Saturn, the planet of structure goes RX on the 6th. And Pluto goes RX on the 20th, but you'll probably like that because everyone lightens up. And Venus goes direct in your 1st House. It's time to take stock of your physical appearance and how you present yourself in the world. Does your personal image reflect your true values?
The Taurus New Moon on the 26th shines light on your communication house. It also reflects on your relationships with siblings, cousins, and neighbors. This moon brings stability at the end of the most chaotic month in 2017. Take a breather.
Mars moves into Gemini creating squares for the Pisces Sun and Rising Sign. Pisces sees the bigger picture on the cosmic level while Gemini wants details about your spiritual experience so it can analyze them. You are about taking leaps of faith and Gemini wants proof. The Mars-Neptune square further emphasizes this scenario. Then there is the Mars-Jupiter trine (last week), the Mercury-Uranus conjunction (13th), and the Saturn-Uranus Trine which gives us enthusiasm but burns you out Pisces. There is too much male outward energy burning through May.
You like the Scorpio Full Moon on the 10th. This water moon falls in your 9th House of long-distance travel, higher education, religion, and the higher mind. Where in the world would you like to travel? At least plan the trip now. The Gemini New Moon on the 25th asks you to look at details and come up with a strategy to manifesting your dreams. You have strong faith, but it takes more than faith for dreams to manifest.
Neptune goes RX on the 16th. This is a time to go inward. Go on a retreat or spend time near the ocean. Put your dreams on hold for now, but pay attention to your nightly dreams and synchronicity for the next 5 months until Neptune goes direct (November 23). Mars moves into Cancer and trines Neptune from the 27 -30. You want to spend time with children during this week and it goes well. You even feel like the Pide Piper with children trailing behind you.
On June 9, Jupiter goes direct and we experience the Sagittarius Full Moon. This bodes well for your public image and career. You get the green light so speed ahead. You might receive invitations to travel overseas, especially if it boosts your career in some way.
The Cancer New Moon on the 23 has you heading to the beach. You explore food, nutrition, and digestive health. And while raw vegan food isn't the comfort food when you were a child, you find a clever way to recreate those childhood favorites with new ingredients. And you take it to heart to nourish your friends.
This month brings Mars back into the picture when Mars in Cancer squares Uranus (19 - 21), and then after Mars moves into Leo the Sun conjuncts Mars (23 - 29). Everyone seems selfish to you Pisces and this causes you to feel disappointed in humanity. Heal this disappointment by contributing your talents to a good cause. Perhaps, you get involved with animal advocacy which is something dear to Pisces' hearts. Or you get involved with cleaning up the ocean.
The Capricorn Full Moon on the 8th/9th brings stable people into your life. And like I mentioned earlier, it is a good time for getting involved with a cause or a group that is dear to your heart. This counteracts any selfishness you see happening on the planet. However, you'll lay low during the Leo New Moon on the 23rd. Or you could just stay home or at the office and get organized.
This is another shake-up month, but it is not as intense as April. You will give a sign of relief when Uranus goes RX on the 3rd and won't go direct until 2018. However, you won't enjoy Mercury RX in Virgo/Leo (13th to September 5). And you won't enjoy all the drama happening with the planets in Cardinal Signs clashing like old Viking warriors. Jupiter squares Pluto (again) during the first eight days of the month. Venus opposes Pluto on the 16th and women are fighting mad.
The Aquarius Lunar Eclipse on the 7th occurs in your 12th House of dreams/unformed/birth/past lives/how we sabotage ourselves. But perhaps you find answers you seek in dreams during this eclipse. On the 21st, we experience a Total Solar Eclipse in Leo in your house of daily work and health. If you are sensing heart problems, you might want to have that checked out by a doctor in August, preferably before the Solar Eclipse.
This is a much calmer month and it wouldn't be a bad idea to go on a spiritual retreat or take a vacation near the ocean. We experience a Mars-Uranus trine which is exact on the 3rd. This gives us a boost of enthusiasm, but some of us are worn out anyway.
The Pisces Full Moon on the 6th begins a new cycle for you. Make sure you set intentions for the next Solar and Lunar year. It's also a good time to reflect on the journey you made in the previous 12 months and the 6 months since the Pisces New Moon. On the 20th, the Virgo New Moon brings up themes around partnerships. If you're single you scrutinize the type of partner that would work best for you. If you're coupled then try not to be too critical of your partner which is easy to do with the Virgo Moon.
We return to Mutable energies this month. However, you are pleased that Jupiter transits into the Water Sign Scorpio on the 11th. For the next 12 months you experience Water trines and it's been a while since we have done that.
However, Venus joins Mars in Virgo and partnerships end up under the microscope lens (exact on the 5th). Mars in Virgo trines Pluto so that helps us get grounded and realistic about our lives (exact on the 1 -2). Mars squares Saturn on the 28 - 29 which feels intense as Mars tries to destroy structure and Saturn tries to maintain it. And on the 24th, the Scorpio Sun conjuncts Jupiter and we dive deep into our subconscious for treasures. We ask what is holding us back from experiencing prosperity?
We experience the last Saturn-Uranus Fire trine which is exact the 7 - 14 and resonates throughout the month. This gives us a boost during a cold month (at least in the northern hemisphere). And we need that Sagittarius energy even if it squares you Pisces. Remember that Sagittarius and Pisces once shared Jupiter in common. And together you take leaps of faith.
Venus catches up with Jupiter (12 - 13) and this is a good time to reap rewards from past efforts or to acquire unexpected wealth. For you, it's a good time to travel or start work towards a higher degree. Mercury in Sagittarius joins Saturn and either we're sober or bouncing off pie-in-the-sky ideologies. Mars in Libra squares Pluto (19 - 20) and we could see legal action taken against government or large corporations. The everyday person is fighting mad.
On November 3, we experience the Taurus Full Moon. This transits in your 3rd House of communication and other themes. It is a sensual moon and you could meet a foreigner at this time that rocks your boat. And by the Scorpio New Moon on the 18th, this relationship could head into deeper waters, that is if you are single. Otherwise, why mess up a stable marriage?
Mercury goes RX in Sagittarius from 3 -22. This takes place in your 10th House of career and the public. Watch what you post on social media because it could bounce back to haunt you. This isn't a good time for sarcasm or posting a clever joke because someone might find the joke offensive and take you to the carpet. Others might have a sense of humor--we're talking Sagittarius here.
Saturn transits into Capricorn and you say bring it on. After all those, Saturn-Neptune Squares from November 2015 and the summer of 2016, you sigh with relief with Saturn transiting into a compatible Earth Sign. And you're not going to mind the Sun joining Saturn (22 - 27) or Venus joining Saturn (final week). And we end the year with a Mars (in Scorpio) trine with Neptune.
While it's probably not the most fun you'll have, others kick up their heels during the Gemini Full Moon on the 3rd. And then people really want to celebrate with the Sagittarius New Moon on the 17th and closer to the holidays. Watch your food and drink intake at this time. Stress or holiday food could cause you to overeat and regret it later. But dream big at least. At least it was a relatively calm year for Pisces.
Dear Cancerians, 2017 is another rough seas year for you (and me because I have my Sun and Mercury in Cancer). From January through May, the Cardinal energies return in with oppositions, squares, and conjunctions. Aries' planet Mars transits from Pisces to Scorpio. Saturns moves into Capricorn in December. Jupiter stays in Libra until October. And of course, Uranus and Pluto are in it for the long haul.
April is a crazy month with several planets changing directions. August follows suit with planetary tension and a Total Solar Eclipse. Remember that all moon cycles and transits directly affect Cancer because the moon is our ruling planet. Just like solar flares and gamma rays affect all Leo since the sun rules Leo. Fortunately, I don't see any Cardinal Grand Squares, but I could be wrong.
I'm only giving the broad strokes here. Please watch my Astrologer Patricia new and full moon videos in 2017. And if you want to know how the transits affect you, sign up for a personal reading. I will say this, plenty of changes are in store for the Cardinal and Mutable Signs in 2017. But you must be used to this by now, I would hope. Transformation seems almost like a cliche these days as does the Dark Night of the Soul. Oh, I've been there too. I've been there.
The Aquarius Moon that launches 2017 throws you off-kilter. People are rebelling and talking about the future. Cancer, by heart, you are a traditionalist and even though you instigate change, at least subconsciously, rebels scare you. And rebels come out to play during the Aquarius Moon. Better get used to it because the North Node moves into Leo and that means that the eclipses are in Leo and Aquarius, with the exception of the Pisces Solar Eclipse in February.
You love when Mars joins Neptune in your 9th House of the higher mind and travel the first week of January. Then on the 13 - 17, Venus joins Neptune in your 9th House. I have a feeling that long-distance travel or returning to college are in store for you this year. Perhaps, you meet a foreigner who stokes your dreams and you spend January either fantasizing about this new love interest or you muster up the courage to get to know this person. Neptune rules fantasies and dreams. You could also meet this person at a spiritual workshop or an online spiritual group.
When the Capricorn Sun hooks up with Pluto on 7 - 12, you feel the embers of transformation stirring in you. You might want to push those urges aside, but I don't advise that. Go through the fire to the other side, Cancer and get reacquainted with your God-given power.
You also find the Mars in Pisces square with Saturn in Sagittarius troublesome. Perhaps, a new law curbs how you can do your daily work or a strict religious group interferes with your development of your higher mind or hinders your ability to speak your truth. Cancer, find another way around the mountain instead of blasting your way through the rocks.
Mercury RX happens in your 6th House of health/work/employees/pets until the 8th of January. Miscommunication happens with doctors, health providers, lab results, as well as, those who work with you or for you. Double check all details.
The Cancer Full Moon on the 12th ends a cycle that began with the Full Cancer Moon in 2016. This moon asks you to reassess endings that occurred in recent months. How did you contribute to those endings? Did you respond or did you react? You'll also look at your diet and eliminate foods that slow you down due to allergies and sensitivities. Take care of your breast and stomach health. And prepare for a new cycle.
The Aquarius New Moon on the 27th bring out those rebels and non-traditionalists again. You wish they would shut up and go away. You don't want to think about the future because you fear it. And if one more person mentions the Aquarius Age, you'll scream at them. Oh, why can't things stay the same? Focus on solar energy. Focus on new ways of growing organic food. And focus on humanitarians who champion the underdog. There, now do you feel better?
Jupiter is the first planet to go RX in 2017 and it goes retrograde on the 6th in your 4th House of home/mother/childhood. This means that you will want to spend more time at home or in therapy dealing with mother issues from your childhood. The next 5 months, you'll want to spend time healing old wounds and accepting what you can't change. Travel won't be on your mind because you're going to become a homebody until June 9 when Jupiter goes direct.
The Mars-Pluto square (22 - 25) and Mars conjunction with Uranus (26 - 28) stir up those Cardinal energies demanding change again. And any change is stressful so you want to hide from the world. But I advise you to put on fighting gloves and jump into the fray. Well, no, actually, I ask you to blow the horn of peace and join with Jupiter RX in Libra. If you can create peace in yourself and your home, then you do the world a huge favor.
The Leo Lunar Eclipse occurs on the 10th in your 2nd House of gifts/talents/values. You are hoping that other innovative types (there's that Aquarius again) share their resources with you (the sun is transiting in your 8th House of other people's resources). You hope that someone like an agent or manager comes along to take you to the next level. And if you stay open to authenticity this could happen. Eclipses open doors and close doors. Get ready to show the world what you got.
The Sun enters Pisces shining a light once again on the higher mind (18th) And then the Pisces Solar Eclipse enters your 9th House on the 26th. You feel more sensitive but also inspired than usual. Emotions surface not for you to banish, but for you to accept. Emotions represent a rainbow and if you allow emotions to rise in you (in a safe way) they transform. So eventually, you transmute grief and experience joy.
The first week the Sun joins Neptune in your 9th House of travel/higher mind/higher learning. It is a wonderful time to take an online course and get certification. This will allow you to teach others formally and earn another stream of income. This could involve travel too, but you want to put the travel part off until after June 9 when Jupiter goes direct.
Venus in Aries goes RX on the 4th and you feel this in your 10th House of career and the public. It's time to revisit your values. And you might find that you have to speak your truth. Aries energy gives you the courage to do this, even RX. The Sun joins Venus in your 10th House (25 -31) and this is a good time to promote your work to the public. You could receive recognition. Then Mercury joins Uranus in your 10th House (27 -28) and you want to shake things up a bit. Think of ways to innovate so that you don't lag behind the latest trends.
The Virgo Full Moon on the 12th transits in your 3rd House of communications. You put on the critical thinking cap and are scathing to others. Your intention is to purify and fix, but this might not go over well with touchy feeling types. Better to use this moon energy to perfect your own work and clean your own house.
The Aries New Moon on the 27th brings out immaturity in others and in you too. Everyone's feeling impatient and they act like that Violet character in Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. Everyone wants what they want now. If you find this tiresome, retreat and go and enjoy an early spring day. Listen to "Here Comes the Sun" 20 times or until you feel calmer.
Remember, I warned you about April's traffic jam. Saturn goes RX on the 5th in your 6th House of work. So if you have any big projects to launch do it before April 5 or after August 31st. You meet up with delays in work, with health concerns, and experience restrictions in the daily work environment and with the daily routine or your employees. On the 9th, Mercury goes RX in Taurus which is your 11th House, so expect miscommunication with friends, social media contacts, colleagues, and groups. And communication is also slow-going. This lasts until May 3rd.
Good news is that Venus goes direct on the 14th in your 9th House. So at least studies go well now. And you explore your higher mind where you realize you have a different set of values than you thought. Act accordingly. Finally, Pluto goes RX in your 7th House of partnerships and legal situations. So, you can examine power control issues or the balance of power in relationships. Take advantage of the respite when Pluto becomes a sleeping giant for the next 6 months. Tyrants disappear for a while and you have space to breathe.
The Libra Full Moon on the 11th lands in your 4th House and joins Jupiter RX. You seek peace and harmony in the home. You might redecorate a room or beautify your surroundings. You might as well, since you are hibernating this winter, especially after Jupiter went RX on February 6th.
You adore the Taurus New Moon on the 26th. Set intentions for prosperity and abundance now. Enjoy some sensual pleasures. And do hop on social media where you connect with other sensual types and share images of the natural world with others. This does you a world of good. If you won't go outside and see the world, that invite the world onto your computer at least.
When I think of May I always see Fernando the bull eating daisies in a meadow. It's usually a peaceful month for me with the scent of lilacs perfuming the air after a rainstorm. And we feel like we have entered the season of spring in the northern hemisphere. But the planets bring us a mixed bag of energy and you can see the glass full or half empty.
First the good news, we experience the Saturn-Uranus trine all month and this fires up our enthusiasm and might even get you out of the house. Mars in Gemini trines Jupiter the final week of the month. And this takes place in your 12th and 4th houses so you explore pre-birth experiences, past lives, and other spiritual topics. And this heals your home life.
Now, the bad news. Mars in Gemini squares Neptune (11 - 17) so spiritually-minded folks find themselves crossing swords with more analytical types. We also see more research on cognitive brain functions. And some scientists are going to criticize us more spiritual types and metaphysical concepts. Mercury conjuncts Uranus in Aries (13th) in your 10th House. This gives you more brain power but also stirs an awakening on the planet which brings stress. You don't know how to deal with the public on this day. But it will pass.
We experience the Scorpio Full Moon on the 10th which falls in your 5th House. But I think this has to do with stress levels affecting your health. Time to see what psychological issues are affecting your health now. Coaching and therapy prove helpful. Try some recreational therapy. The Gemini New Moon on the 25th feels lighter and has you exploring spiritual realms since it falls behind the veil in your 12th House.
A Venus-Uranus conjunction from 1 - 3 shakes things up. It brings out the warrior in women or women act immature. I think it has to do with women showing up as authentic and bucking the system. Take advantage of this energy that falls in your 10th House. You have the courage now to stand up for yourself and awaken others. Go for it.
Jupiter finally goes direct on the 9th and on the same day as the Sagittarius Full Moon which lights up your 6th House. Perhaps, you can combine your daily work with travel. Now, is the time to set travel plans in motion. And I'm not talking taking a walk around the block. I'm talking about crossing the pond and spending time overseas.
Neptune goes RX in your 9th House of travel, but you can still travel to attend a spiritual retreat or visit sacred sites. Neptune will leave you in a fog part of the time, but the some people like surreal situations. And it also depends if you were born with Neptune direct or retrograde. I was born with Neptune and Saturn retrograde so when these planets turn backwards, I feel at home. Just watch out for deceptive people and don't believe the hype. Don't hook up with any spiritual gurus and hone into your intuition. If it seems too good to be true, run the other way.
We end June with a Mars (in Cancer) trine with Neptune. So this is another good time to go on a spiritual or yoga retreat. Spend time near the ocean. And I see some Cancerians trying mountain biking near a lake or on a beach. That looks like fun.
I already mentioned the Sagittarius Moon on the 9th. The New Cancer Moon on the 23rd (lands on my North Node) begins a new cycle. It's time to set intentions for the next 12 months. Where do you see yourself a year from now?
This month reminds me of daisies. And it's a Cancerian month of national celebrations (Canada, US, and France celebrate liberty days). People seem more wholesome now, more old fashion, and the word "vintage" gets bandied around. It's a time to enjoy the good life or to take a vacation away from daily struggles.
Unfortunately, Mars in Cancer squares Uranus (19 -21) so we find that we have new freedoms to fight for and social justice is on our minds. And at the end of the month, the Leo Sun connects with Mars in Leo. This transits in your 2nd House of values/talents/gifts. So you want to promote your talents to the world and Leo gives you the drive and the spotlight for your cause.
The Capricorn Full Moon lands on July 9 (at least in my part of the world) and this has you exploring the realm of partnerships. You balance your needs with the needs of your partner. Then on the 23rd, the Leo New Moon has you exploring your gifts and talents again. You research new ways to share your talents with the world, remembering Shakespeare's words about the world as a stage. Perhaps, you literally get on stage and perform.
Uranus goes RX on the 3rd in your 10th House. On one hand, those loose cannon types fall asleep for the next several months. But on the other hand, we experience less awakening on the planet because people become apathetic. However, Jupiter squares Pluto (your 4th and 7th houses) on 1 - 8 so people are at least calling forth social justice. Mercury goes RX in Virgo/Leo on the 13th until September 5, so this directly impacts your communication house. Pay attention to details and make sure other people are hearing what you're saying. You might not be on the same page.
Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto on the 16th. Women demand your rights. And if you are a woman, then join your sisters.
An Aquarius Lunar Eclipse on the 7th transits in your 8th House of other people's resources and the occult. If you want to align with those resources then you need to innovate and think about future trends. You also need to stop seeing what it is in for you and consider the bigger picture of humanity For instance, if you are an author, then think of your readers and trends they follow.
A Total Solar Eclipse in Leo occurs on the 21st and lands in your 2nd House of gifts and talents. In fact, in July your focus is on your gifts and talents. And this is a Leo time of self and following the heart.
I'm telling all the signs that September is a month to get caught up on rest or beauty sleep. Take time away for some "me" time. Mars in Leo trines Uranus the 1st week of the month. And this bodes well for those of you who work with social justice issues. Everyone is rooting for the underdog. And Mercury goes direct in Leo on the 5th which has us breathing again.
You enjoy the Pisces Full Moon on the 6th. Spend the day daydreaming as these dreams reveal to you your true aspirations. It's a moonbeam kind of day. The Virgo New Moon on the 20th is the right day for clearing up miscommunication that occurred during the Mercury RX. You get back on track, get organized, and feel more efficient in your dealings with cousins, neighbors, and siblings.
The big news this month is that Jupiter transits out of Libra into Scorpio (your 5th House) on the 11th. So for the next 12 months, you will see how your children or other people's children reflect your inner self. You will get involved with fun activities that also provide therapy such as music or photo or art therapy. Perhaps, you join a theatre group that explores the psyche like they did in the late 1960s and early 1970s. You'll also enjoy the Sun-Jupiter conjunction in your 5th House on the 24th.
On the earthy front, Venus joins Mars in Virgo on the 5th which has you exploring relationships between men and women. And Mars in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn which helps us build new structure or manifest our dreams into concrete reality (1st week, exact on 1 -2). However, Mars in Virgo also challenges Saturn in Sagittarius so how are you communicating with others in your daily work environment? You most likely will need to make changes as others will give you their feedback.
The Aries Full Moon on the 5th feels bombastic even if it gives you drive to complete projects. People are too hotheaded and ambitious and you prefer the more gentle types. And you'll meet the gentle types on the 19th during the Libra New Moon. If you seek harmony join others in making music or listen to your favorite music on this day. I hear the words, "cosmic jam session," whatever that means.
The Saturn-Uranus trine lights up November (exact 7 -14 and resonates the entire month) so this brings warmth to an otherwise cold month (at least where I live). Venus joins Jupiter in your 5th House (12 and 13). And if you get involved in a love affair now, expect it to move from light and fun to serious and deep quickly. Mars in Libra squares Pluto (19 -20) so we hear others demanding social justice again (theme for 2017). Then talker Mercury joins Saturn in Sagittarius on the 28 -29. So you're not going to get much work done during this time.
The Taurus Full Moon on the 4th brings everything to a halt. People just want to enjoy engaging with their senses. Communication and travel plod along. You enjoy this moon though since the moon is exalted in Taurus. The Scorpio New Moon brings the sun and moon into your 5th House where they align with Jupiter. This shed light on any new relationships you beginning at this time. Or it's time to get to know your children better or if you are childless, your inner child.
We end 2017 with Saturn moving into its own sign, Capricorn on the Solstice. Saturn moves into your 7th House of partnerships and for the next 2 1/2 years Saturn builds new structure in this area. Or Saturn could bring on a divorce, but that's usually more likely to happen with a Uranus or Jupiter transit in the 7th House. A Sun-Saturn conjunction occurs in your 7th House on 22 -27 and then Venus conjuncts Saturn during the last week which gives a boost to partnerships. Mars in Scorpio (also in your 5th House) trines Neptune in your 9th House. So travel goes well, especially travel with a partner or children.
Mercury goes RX in Sagittarius (6th House of work/health) from the 3 -22. This puts a damper on the holidays, but double check any travel plans or triple check. Make sure that you communicate clearly with others and that they hear what you say. And don't buy any electronics or big purchases during this time. Buy your holiday gifts in November instead. Mark this RX on our calendar.
The Gemini Full Moon on the 3rd is a fun moon for spiritual exploration since it lands in your 12th House. The Sagittarius New Moon on the 17th transits in your 6th House of health/work. Pay close attention to your daily routine and communication. Time to take care of health problems, but wait until after Mercury goes direct on the 22nd to hear back about any medical test results. You might have to repeat tests if you did them between 3 -22.
Anyway happy holidays.
The big changes for you coming up in 2017 are Jupiter moving from Libra and your 12th House into Scorpio and your first house in October. Then in December, Saturn moves out of Sagittarius (your 2nd House) into Capricorn (3rd House). Meanwhile, your ruling planet, Pluto continues to support you in Capricorn and Neptune brings a spiritual dimension as it stays in Pisces until 2025. Chiron continues to churn up childhood issues in Pisces but brings healing through spiritual avenues.
The Solar Eclipse in Pisces in February trines Scorpio and helps with the healing process and spiritual exploration. But the North Node moves into Leo in May so eclipses now occur in Aquarius and Leo, two signs that square Scorpio and leave you feeling at odds. It's another year of transformation and letting go of old structure. It's like this for everyone and not something to take personally. Everyone evolves at their own pace.
We start off the year with an Aquarius Moon which feels too zany to you. You choose to avoid rebellious types unless they are passionate about a favorite cause. Otherwise this energy is too detached for you. You do enjoy the Mars-Neptune conjunction the first week. This takes place in your 5th House of recreation/love affairs/children. And you could very well engage in a love affair during this time because Mars is the classical ruler of Scorpio and Neptune is a Water Sign planet. Just make sure that you're not entertaining delusions because that could cost you.
The Sun conjuncts Pluto, your ruling planet from the 7 - 12 in your 3rd House of communication. However, Mercury in Sagittarius, your 2nd House doesn't go direct until the 8th so use your laser focus as discernment for communication coming your way now, especially from neighbors and siblings. Venus enters your 5th House and conjuncts Neptune (13 -17) and indeed, that love affair could be heating up, especially if you are a man meeting a woman partner now. But Mars in Pisces squares Saturn in Sagittarius (18 - 24) and this has your values squaring up against any romance that is happening in your 5th House.
You love the full moon in cuddly Cancer on the 12th. This falls in your 9th House of long-distance travel, academics, religion and the higher mind. You don't care for the second Aquarius (New) Moon that occurs in January on the 27th. Again, all those nonsensical people come out of the woodwork and pretend that it's the Aquarius Age already. Not if you have anything to do with it, Scorpio.
After Mercury went direct on January 8, that month was free and clear of retrograde planets. It was full-steam ahead with projects, exams, and new partnerships. But on February 6, Jupiter is the first planet to go RX in 2017 and this happens in your 12th House. Still, it might be a good time to return to old spiritual practices or delve into some past lives for several months (Jupiter goes Direct on June 9).
Mars transit into Aries and then squares Pluto, but aren't we used to this transit by now? It's been happening every other year since Pluto transited into Capricorn in 2008. And Scorpio you like it intense anyway so here's a bunch of world drama coming your way (22 -25). And if that's not intense enough for you, Mars conjuncts Uranus (26 -28) in your 6th House of daily work. What requires some shaking up? Do you need to take better care of your health? Do you need to fire an employee? Uranus is going to reveal that truth to you.
Since the North Node is moving into Leo in 2017, we experience a Lunar Eclipse in Leo on the 10th in your 10th House of Career and the Public. Perhaps, it is time to toot your horn a bit or engage with the public to promote your work or beliefs. Then on the 26th, the Solar Eclipse takes place in Pisces which lights up your 5th House, again of love affairs/recreation/children. This will be the last Pisces eclipse until 2024. So take advantage of this new beginning in Pisces or your 5th House. This could even mean the arrival of a child if you are trying to become a parent.
The Sun in Pisces conjuncts Neptune (1 - 4) which happens every year in March lighting up your 5th House. Since Venus goes RX later in your 5th House, keep an eye on this house in 2017. You could have children coming into your life, take up a new sport, or something meaningful. Venus in Aries goes RX on the 13 in your 6th House.
Do you still value your daily work or do you need to change jobs? The Sun conjuncts Venus (25 -31) so this emphasizes your values. On top of that Mercury conjuncts Uranus in your 6th House (27 -28). This boost the brain and helps you get a lot of work done that involves communication.
Finally, you experience the Jupiter-Pluto square in your 12th and 3rd Houses. I have a feeling that you are trying to communicate spiritual experiences and you have a difficult articulating the expansiveness of spirit to others.
The Virgo Full Moon on the 12th has you meeting up with colleagues or editing a project for a colleague. People require your ability to scrutinize and your laser focus. You also lend a hand organizing for a non-profit. Perhaps, you put together an event.
Welcome to chaotic April. This month, Saturn goes RX on the 6th (your 2nd House), Mercury goes RX on the 9th in Taurus. Venus goes direct on the 15th or Tax Day in the US and Pluto goes RX on the 20th in your 3rd House of communication. You definitely notice when Pluto goes RX because it is your ruling planet. It's time to conserve your energy until Pluto goes direct on September 28.
Mars trines Pluto (6 - 8) which gives you a boost of energy and confidence. The Aries Sun conjuncts Uranus in your 6th House of work (14 - 15). Time to innovate and do something to wake yourself or others up. Finally, Mercury conjuncts Uranus again on the 28 - 30). We're hearing a lot about innovation and you might want to pay attention where work and health are concerned.
The Taurus New Moon on the 26th lights up your 7th House of partnerships. With the chaotic energies of the month, why not retreat with your partner to the beach or the countryside? That's what I would do the last week of April, if I were you.
The Mercury-Uranus conjunction continues until the 13th. We all feel like brainiacs. Mars moves into Gemini and squares Neptune (11 -17) but this is a biannual event. We experience Gemini logic going to heads with Pisces' dreaminess. Gemini doubts that we create our own reality. He wants proof and so does his twin brother. But the trine with Mars in Gemini and Jupiter in Libra asks us to expand our consciousness to bring harmony to the Earth. And you go deep with this since these energies occur in two spiritual houses (8 and 12). And for the entire month we all get a boost of fiery energy when Saturn trines Uranus. We experience this trine several times throughout 2017.
The Scorpio Full Moon (your 1st House) occurs on May 10. It's time to complete a growth cycle. Look at all the transformation that has occurred for you in the past 12 months. Ask yourself what you want to manifest now? Is it better health? Is it a soul mate relationship? Time to reap the fruit from past manifestations and to set new intentions for the following 12 months.
Venus in Aries conjuncts Uranus in your 6th House of work/health/daily routine. You might be hiring an Aries or Aquarius woman. Or you might be getting involved in a feminist or woman warrior cause that takes up many hours of your day. But be careful what you commit to since Neptune goes RX on the 16th, even if a Mars in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces trine bring you powerful watery energy the last few days of the month. You might use this time to do a body cleanse or spend time near a large body of water. That would be deeply healing for you.
The best news for everyone is that Jupiter goes direct on June 9, the same day of the Sagittarius Full Moon. We are all feeling uplifted and in a mood to celebrate or travel. This happens in your 2nd House (the full moon) and your 12th House. I would suggest going on a spiritual retreat, maybe even in a foreign country. Or visit a sacred site at this time as research. You're really digging deep with past lives now.
You love the Cancer New Moon on the 23rd. And hopefully, you did take this month to travel even if you feel your home is on your back. I really seeing you making big headway with the sacred realm in 2017 and this is a good time to give that evolution a boost.
We experience a Mars energy with the Mars-Uranus square on 19 - 21 and the Sun-Mars conjunction (Leo) on the 23 - 29. Mars is the classical ruler of Scorpio so you handle Mars energy as well as Pluto energy. Are you busting out and embracing change?
You experience the Capricorn Full Moon on the 8th in your 3rd House of short-distance travel and communication. This is always a sober moon and one that could bring delays and restrictions. Make sure that you communicate in a business or authoritative manner for fullest effect.
The Leo New Moon at 0 degrees on the 23rd, marks a new beginning for all of us. But for you, this new beginning happens in our 10th House of career and the public. Prepare for the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo that occurs in August. If you can move past your fears, you can make headway in your career and lighten up your public image now.
Uranus goes RX on the 3rd in your 6th House. This gives you a break from relentless changes happening with health and work. However, when Uranus is RX it is no longer a good time to innovate and Uranus doesn't go direct until 2018. Another Jupiter-Pluto square occurs 1 -8 and you revisit themes from the last Jupiter-Pluto square. Mercury goes RX in Virgo/Leo on the 13th and this brings delays and miscommunication with your career and public image.
Most important, Venus in Cancer opposes your ruler Pluto on the 16th. This is a day when women gather and come up against the old way of doing business. Will you join these women in the fight?
The Aquarius Moon is back in the form of a Lunar Eclipse on the 7th and this moon shakes up your home life. Perhaps your teenager rebels. Or your spouse does. You shock your mother in some way or she shocks you. The Total Solar Eclipse takes place in Leo on the 21st. Read the Leo Moon themes for August and multiply those times ten.
That song about September by Earth, Wind, and Fire is playing in my head. This is a calm month and we experience a Mars in Leo trine with Uranus. Perfect your daily work and the public notices you.
On September 6, the Pisces Full Moon again lights up your 5th House. Do you have a new child in the household? This is also a good time to get involved in the arts or get romantically involved. The Virgo New Moon on the 19th keeps you busy with grassroots groups, colleagues or spending time on social media. Just don't criticize others because that won't go over well and it is your feelings that are hurt.
Jupiter moves out of Libra (12th House) and into Scorpio (1st House) on the 10th. For the next 12 months get ready for a Jupiter makeover as Jupiter connects with your Sun or Ascendant.Venus and Mars join up in Virgo. You could meet a new partner while networking with groups the first week of October around the 5th. You like the Sun-Jupiter conjunction at the end of the month. It lands in your 1st House. But the Mars-Saturn square on the 12th feels fussy.
With the Sun, Venus, Mercury (1 - 5) and Jupiter in Scorpio, you're feeling your power. And it is best to use this power for transforming your life circumstances. Instead of focusing on what other people are doing to you or not doing for you, own your power by taking full responsibility for your life and for your fate.
And you gain power from the Saturn-Uranus trine (7 -14) that falls in your 2nd and 6th houses. I say, focus on getting your talents and gifts out to the world through your daily work. Then Venus conjuncts Jupiter in your 1st House of self-identity and body on 12 -13. While overeating or indulging in drink are not good plans, any improvement plan you start now is bound to reap rewards. And you could see some financial gain or more confidence from this planetary alliance in your 1st House. Mercury conjuncts Saturn in your 2nd House of gifts/talents/values on the 28 -29. Again, I say share your gifts with the world. Strike when the iron is hot.
You don't enjoy the Mars-Pluto square on the 19 -20. But you can handle the intensity of it since Mars and Pluto are your planetary co-rulers. Defend your rights if you must. Don't back down if people attack you, but allow the energy to move past you and reflect back to the attacker like with martial artists.
The Taurus Full Moon on the 4th has you focusing on partners. This could be a sensual time, but make sure that you don't cross horns or refuse to compromise. Taurus and Scorpio people don't like to compromise and if any sign has the motto, my way or the highway, it is these two. So use this moon for manifestation of abundance and harmonious partners.
The Scorpio New Moon on the 18th again has you gazing at yourself and how you identify with you quirks, strengths, and weaknesses. This moon ends a cycle for you and it's time to reassess where you would like to be in the next 12 months.
Mercury goes RX in your 2nd House from the 3 -22. It's not a good time to pitch your projects or apply for employment. Wait until the New Year, if possible. Communication goes haywire. And you end up doubting your ability to communicate with others because it seems like no one is noticing you. But what's really going on is that people are stuck in their own communication quagmires and stressed out with the holidays. Your message could be compassion and empathy.
Saturn leaves your 2nd House and moves into Capricorn which is your 3rd House. This is the house of communication, education, thinking styles, siblings, cousins, and neighbors. Saturn asks you to sober up in these areas and expect delays and restrictions for the next two and half years. However, Capricorn is a supportive sign for Scorpio which gives you strength and endurance. This Saturn move occurs on the Solstice (21st). Then the Sun connects with Saturn in your 3rd House on 22 -27. And then Venus connects with Saturn during the last week. This is a good time for romance.
And we also end the year with a Mars-Neptune trine which is exact on the 27 - 28. For you this wonderful water energy occurs in your 1st House and your 5th House. This is a wonderful time if you're single and practice self-love because you could meet a life partner and the relationship deepens quickly, the way you prefer it, Scorpio.
Happy holidays, Scorpio.
