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…

SUNscopes for the week of August 6

August 4, 2017

All Sign: This week Mercury is at a standstill.  On Wed. it moves into 11° of Virgo and stays there until August 17. (It normally clips along at about two degrees a day.) Although you will feel stalled in water, this is actually a useful time to look around and take stock. Look for things…

SUNscopes for the week of July 30

July 29, 2017

All Signs: Last week I mentioned that Mercury retrograde was upon us because the month of August is a poor time to buy all forms of ground transportation and items related to communication like cell phones, printers and computers. Let me repeat those dates: The actual retrograde time is from Aug. 13 to Sept. 5;…

SUNscopes for the week of July 23

July 21, 2017

By Georgia Nicols All Signs: This year Mercury goes retrograde four times; and the third time is about to begin. What you need to know is to avoid certain purchases – specifically, ground transportation and items of communication. (Cars, trucks, bikes, computers, printers and cell phones.) Note: Before and after Mercury is retrograde, there are…

SUNscopes for the week of July 16

July 14, 2017

By Georgia Nicols All Signs: The predictions for this week are a bit like a weather forecast with heavy rain interspersed with sunshine. On Monday, we will all experience detours, accidents and unpredictable situations because of Uranus. This happens again on Thursday, but it’s a bit milder. Fortunately, Tuesday is charming and easy-going; and likewise,…

SUNscopes for the week of July 9

July 7, 2017

By Georgia Nicols All Signs: Each week I look at where the planets are — and it feels a bit like looking in my fridge to see what I can eat. What has changed since the last time I looked there five minutes ago? This week is gentle. Our weekly line up has the Sun…
