Aries - March 21 – April 19
The first two weeks of October you may start to doubt your love life, Aries, or doubt that it will ever be up to par for you. Insecurities from the past seem to keep creeping up and your typical very pragmatic self will be replaced by doubt. Hold tight, because not all that you feel will be true. You could be sleep-deprived, not feeling great health-wise, or over-worked, and your intuitive side is off on a vacation. Be careful with over-overanalyzing and nitpicking at every little thing.
Even though Mercury Retrograde creeps in at the end of October, it seems to be paying you favors. Your love life becomes clearer and your practical decisive self is returned. Deep breathes, Aries!
The end of October brings word of a job promotion or a new job opportunity and it is right up your alley too. Normally I advise against making any huge job changes during Mercury Retrograde, but this seems to slide right under Mercury Retrograde’s radar – so take it!
Leave the Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde costume for Halloween and be careful to not embrace the persona the first half of the month.
September is a promising month for many. September often brings an array of emotions. Many are sad as it marks the close of summer, and yet some are excited as opportunities increase to network and meet new people with classes and autumn activities. This September is a little bit like the calm before the storm. Mercury Retrograde once again welcomes us with its presence in October, so if you are planning on any large, especially electronic, purchases, make certain to get that completed this month.
September 5th brings the New Moon in Virgo. Virgo is all about organization and happiness, but this moon may make you feel a bit neurotic, paranoid and even self-conscious. You may doubt your relationships, your career and even the government. New Moons are about embracing newness and that makes it difficult when you were confused. During this time it is beneficial for you to evaluate what you want in your life, who you want in your life and how you want to feel and push through the fog that will come during this time. Patience will be the key for this time as it will feel as if everybody, including yourself, is doing everything all wrong.
September 18th/19th brings the Harvest Moon. This moon in Pisces is all about closure and gathering. You may look back at the springtime at projects you started to see what you accomplished and pat yourself on the back, and look to see what fell through the cracks and if they should be added to your To-Do list. Pisces is all about creativity and intuition and this is a great time for you to do anything artistic or creative a few days before or after this date (psst…if in Michigan – join me at the Gypsy Soul Retreat on September 14th). It is also a great time to look at things realistically. If you are having money concerns, seek a financial expert. If you are having love concerns, seek a licensed therapist or life coach, etc. It’s time to take care of business rather than hiding from it.
October is looking to be turbulent for most, so September is a month to enjoy the simple and small things in your life.
LUNAR ALERT – The month of August begins with what is called a moon wobble, so if you feel off-centered, overly sensitive and/or moody – you can blame it on the moon. August 6th brings the New Moon in Leo, which makes it an awesome time to start anything new and take huge steps to make your vision a reality. August 20/21 offers a Blue Moon – Blue Moons occur when there are two full moons in one month or if the full moon occurs in two or more of the same sign (which this is the case this month). The moon won’t really be blue (darn-it!). This moon will be in the sign of Aquarius (just as it was last month), and is extra potent to help you eliminate that which isn’t serving you well in your life in order to help bring newness.
June 26th until July 20th we welcome Mercury Retrograde, but we also welcome Jupiter on June 26th, which is the planet of abundance, growth, happy endings, resolutions and win-win outcomes. Jupiter helps to solve problems and opens the big doors which have been so heavy to open. Look for new areas of your life to resolve and new growth to happen. With growth, however, sometimes you have to experience loss. Don’t mourn, look towards the sun instead and let the shadows stay behind you.
A tiny wrench does get thrown in at the end of June and into July (June 26th until July 20th) – Mercury Retrograde.
You will often see Astrologers and even Psychics cringe and then sigh when Mercury Retrograde is mentioned, and those around raise an eyebrow and ask what the inside scoop is.
May is a Magical Month with two eclipses, which will bring a lots of change, transformation and excitement to most everybody. Watch out, May is set to be a wild ride!
A New Moon with a Solar Eclipse occurs on May 9 2021 in Taurus. This moon will most affect people born within the Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius). New Moons are all about new beginnings and life transformations, and the Solar Eclipse offers an extra boost to an already magical time.
Sweet April showers do spring May flowers
April brings about something different for each sign, from passion, to job opportunities and even pregnancy announcements. As we shed the winter’s coat, we are also shedding the energy and uck that has left so many feeling sad, lonely and vulnerable. Just know that with each seed planted, fertilized and watered, brings new opportunities for blooms. It is your choice what you want to grow, or not grow.
Aries - March 21 – April 19
April is a great month for you, Aries, and it as if you can do no wrong.
If you aren’t in a relationship, then this is a fabulous month for you to put yourself out there as your energy is seductive and vibrant, especially the first week of April. The planet of love, Venus, encourages love and understanding for you and around you. Past hurts begin to fade away this month, and you take on a new outlook.
If you are in a relationship, this is a great month to spend some couple time, even if it is just cuddling on the couch with your favorite movie or dusting off your bicycles and finding a quaint park to ride around in.
There may be an unexpected career opportunity that arises mid-April that will make you feel unsettled. Hold tight, as everything will come together by the end of April and you will be feeling steady once more.
Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons in life do not last.
The spring rains will come again.”

March 21 – April 19
March is all about transition for you, Aries. And like majority of the signs, the month may start feeling confused in all aspects of your life; it is as if all you thought you grasped and understood is slipping from you. Hold on, Aries, this is temporary, and by mid-March you will start feeling in control once more. The end of March and into the entire month of April, you get an extra special birthday present – love. That is, if you are open to it. The last couple years you’ve grown a tad cynical, even for those in relationships, but your negativity is exfoliated away and what is left is new perception. It is important, however, for you to let yourself be open to it. Yes, Aries, this means feeling a tad bit exposed. It’s time for you to open that old memory box that has stored your sorrow, your cynicism and your pessimism with regard to love and burn it. Reaffirm that you are worthy of love, because you ARE, and the end of the month affirms that for you.

February 25th marks the Full Moon, sometimes called the Snow Moon, Storm Moon, Hunger Moon and Hunter Moon.
Are you feeling the crazy energy yet? The Full Moon is in Virgo, which can make many feel a bit unsettled, but we entered Mercury Retrograde on February 23rd. Virgo is ruled by Mercury, it projects a powerful energy of self-doubt in all aspects of life, which can make the most confident person want to pull the blankets over their head.
The best way to deal with this moon is to hide, and if you can’t do that, do your best to avoid conflict, negativity and to be aware of communication and interactions as both the Full Moon and Mercury Retrograde will be conflictual.
Mercury Retrograde occurs three times a year, and lasts for several weeks during each time period. It is said that Mercury Retrograde goes backwards, or takes a vacation. Mercury is ruled by communication, so anything with communication, contracts and legal obligations can and often does go haywire. We begin the first Mercury Retrograde of 2013 on February 23rd lasting until March 17th, but we are within the shadow of chaos two weeks before it begins and two weeks afterwards. Sort of like when you know your vacation is coming up, and you start to wind down a couple weeks before it, and then it takes awhile to get into the swing of things when you get back. Yep, just like that.
Stop feeling stuck! Early in the morning on February 10th, we will experience the New Moon, or Dark Moon, in Aquarius. The few days previous to this moon you may have felt as if your life path was lost and flooded over and the more that you attempted to find it, the more you felt like you were bailing water! This New Moon will take some action on your part. Remember the last time you experienced rejection and felt as if you couldn’t even move, but then something fabulous happened and you wondered why you were acting like a lovesick teenager? Well, from February 7th until the 10th you may have felt just like that. I wish I could tell you that this New Moon offers you a fresh start, but it doesn’t, that is unless you take the action to make it so.
Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.

December 22 – January 19
February may just be a tough month for you, Cap. Communication between partners will be tense and misunderstandings could cause for some arguments especially in the first couple weeks of February. Keep the faith, though. June brings the planet of Love, Venus, into your life, and you will all forget the struggles you have had for the last couple years. So if you are currently single, by no means am I telling you to close your online profile or go on that blind date, just be forewarned that the right situation and the right person may wait to appear until mid-year. No need to complex your love situation by adding someone into your dah that you don’t really have feelings for. Those in relationships, watch out as things may get heated. It is a great time to step away from everyday life and take a quick vacation with your love.
