SUNscopes for the week of March 31

March 29, 2019

All Signs: One would think that in an orderly universe, each month would have a Full Moon and a New Moon. But not so, Monsieur le Pussycat! Life is not so orderly in 2019. (Lean closer and I will tell you more.) “Oui! Please do!” This month we had the Full Moon in Libra; yet…

SUNscopes for the week, Mar. 24

March 22, 2019

All Signs: This week Venus moves into Pisces, Mars moves into Gemini, and Mercury stops being retrograde. Glory hallelujah! Along with the Sun and the Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars are called our “personal” planets. (They tweet. They’re on social media.) The Sun of course, is the boss. Mercury is how we express ourselves. Venus…

All Signs: This week on Wednesday, we have the Vernal Equinox. In Latin, “vernalis” means “spring” and “eqinoxium” means “time of equal days and nights.”  This is not to be confused with hangus overatus, which means “too much the night before.” The equinox happens twice a year whereas the hangus overatus occurs with surprising frequency….

March 8, 2019

All Signs:  The planet Uranus takes 84 years to orbit the Sun. Another way of looking at this is to say that it takes 84 years for Uranus to go through all 12 signs. Uranus symbolizes surprise, dynamite, explosions, discovery and the unexpected. “Eureka!” It represents striking a blow for freedom, independence and self-governance. It…

March 2, 2019

All Signs: “Faster than a speeding bullet! … Able to leap tall buildings at a single bound!” Yep, Mercury retrograde is here for March, testing the kryptonite of the post office, delivery services, accounting firms, ground transportation and everyone’s efforts to function and communicate. “Oh no, a flat tire!” “I’m locked out of my car.”…

SUNscopes for the week of Feb. 24

February 22, 2019

All Signs: Because we have survived the excitement and angst of snowstorms and the Supermoon, let’s take stock as we head into March, which holds the first day of Spring! (Time flies when you’re unconscious.) The Sun is in Pisces along with Mercury, which will be retrograde throughout March. (Ouch.) Mars is in Taurus until…

SUNscopes for the week Feb. 17

February 15, 2019

All Signs: This week we will feel a shift of energy because the Sun changes signs. If you are born early in your sign, you will feel this right away. If you are born later in your sign, it will take a week or two to kick in. At the beginning of this week on…

SUNscopes for the week of Feb. 10

February 8, 2019

All Signs: On Tuesday, fiery Mars lines up with unpredictable Uranus, which means the beginning of this week is definitely accident-prone for everyone. Accidents generally occur because we’re distracted by anger or fatigue. Therefore, if you are mindful and alert, you can avoid accidents. Meanwhile, Mercury is in Pisces and Mars has moved into Taurus…

SUNscopes for the week of Feb. 3

February 2, 2019

All Signs: The Julian Calendar proposed by Julius Caesar was adopted in 45 BC. Eventually, due to poor sales, it was dropped and the Gregorian Calendar was adopted in 1582. This “Improved Calendar” needed a Leap Year every four years so those destined few who were born Feb 29 could struggle with when to celebrate…

SUNscopes for the week of Jan. 27

January 25, 2019

All Signs: Mercury will go retrograde in March, which means now is the time to buy cars, trucks, bikes, computers, printers and cell phones. (But observe the Moon Alert in my daily horoscope on your day of purchase.) This week, the big action is Mars is square Pluto. This aspect comes to a mathematical peak…
