SUNscopes for the week of Oct. 15

October 13, 2017

All Signs: When I was a twelve, I was intrigued by the Farmer’s Almanac. I thought it was a prairie publication, like hearing hog prices on the radio. Now I know most countries in the world have almanacs, and they date as far back as 1257. (Long before Netflix.) These annual publications describe the weather,…

October 6, 2017

All Signs: This week lucky Jupiter moves into Scorpio. It was last in Scorpio in 2006; and before that in 1994, 1982 and 1970-71. It will stay in Scorpio for a year; after which it won’t return again until 2030 and then 2042. (By then, my back will go out more than I do.) This…

SUNscopes for the week of Oct. 1

September 29, 2017

All Signs: I think weeks are like cuts of meat — some are tougher than others. This week is pretty good but there is a Full Moon in Aries on Thursday; and Aries is a feisty, impetuous sign with a short fuse! Fortunately, they’re lovable. Naturally, this means the Sun is in Libra (because the…

SUNscopes for the week of Sept. 24

September 22, 2017

All Signs: The Sun is in Libra for the next four weeks, which makes everyone want to restore harmony to their relationships and surroundings. Sales of linens, bedding, dishes and stemware will increase as people seek to make their homes more attractive. Lawyers will buy new duds to add to their already impressive wardrobes. Even…

SUNscopes for the week of Sept. 17

September 15, 2017

All Signs: Ah yes, this trend continues with Mercury, Venus and Mars all in Virgo. Plus the New Moon on Tues./Wed. is in Virgo (the only New Moon in Virgo all year). Each New Moon offers us a chance to make resolutions to improve our lives. Wherever that New Moon falls in your chart, that’s…

SUNscopes for the week of Sept. 10

September 8, 2017

All Signs: As I write this, many are concerned about hurricanes, forest fires and harmful smoke in the air, not to mention the serious challenges elsewhere in the world. Fortunately, this week we have a strong concentration of Virgo energy and Virgo is all about wellness, service to others and trying to improve things. This…

SUNscopes for the week of Sept. 3

September 1, 2017

All Signs: Good news! Millions of students will get a celestial blessing this week as they return to school. (Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.) After being retrograde since Aug. 13, Mercury (the arbiter of daily activities, ground transportation and communications) stops being retrograde on Tues. Sept. 5. This will make it much easier…

SUNscopes for the week of August 27

August 24, 2017

All Signs: OMG! The countdown has begun. “Back to school” is Tuesday, Sept. 5. We have one week left of summer craziness! This means this week is our last chance to do all the things we didn’t get done because the summer just zipped by. Sigh. Happens every year. (Time flies when you’re unconscious.) Jump…

SUNscopes for the week of August 20

August 18, 2017

All Signs: Last week I discussed the Solar Eclipse: “The eclipse is just a New Moon that is turbo charged and tuned for the track. Each New Moon marks the end of a cycle and the beginning of another. Instead of a 28-day window, this eclipse highlights a six-month window back to last Feb. and…

SUNscopes for the week of August 13

August 11, 2017

All Signs: Shakespeare described eclipses as times of treason, mutiny and brothers divided. No wonder everyone is hyped about the Solar Eclipse on Aug. 21, when American towns will see the stars at lunchtime! But the truth is the eclipse is just a New Moon that is turbo charged and tuned for the track. Each…
