SUNscopes for the week of Nov. 19

November 16, 2017

All Signs: Yikes! Final warning about Mercury retrograde shopping: Mercury goes retrograde on Dec. 2; however, it starts slowing down (relative to Earth) by the 25th of this month. This means this is your last week for the rest of the year to buy a car, truck, motorcycle, bike, computer or cell phone! This week…

SUNscopes for the week of Nov. 12

November 9, 2017

All Signs: Weinstein. Ratner. Spacey. Russian money influencing Brexit. Hmmm. Let’s look at Jupiter in Scorpio. Jupiter entered Scorpio on Oct. 10, 2017. (Jupiter has a 12-year cycle and spends about a year in each sign.) Jupiter magnifies whatever it touches! Factoid. In part because it rules the media, publishing and foreign countries. (It also…

November 4, 2017

All Signs: Around Nov. 23 – three weeks from now – Mercury starts slowing down before it goes retrograde at the beginning of Dec. (Relative to planet Earth.) This means if you’re shopping for the Holiday season, you should know you only have three weeks to buy “Mercury -related items.” It’s okay to buy anything…

SUNscopes for the week of Oct. 29

October 26, 2017

All Signs: I think we’re in for a cold winter with lots of snow because Saturn, the planet associated with winter will be in its own sign. The last time this happened was Feb. 1988 to Feb. 1991. Among the many things that Saturn represents, it includes the life of hard knocks. “No pain, no…

SUNscopes for the week of Oct. 22

October 21, 2017

All Signs: This week the Sun moves into Scorpio, which creates a different focus in our lives because as the Sun changes signs (12 times throughout the year) likewise our focus in different areas of our life changes along with it. What is interesting about this particular placement of the Sun is that it is…

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,…

SUNscopes for the week of Oct. 8

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…

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…
