   Your Starlight Solutions Forecast begins on the next page. If the time period for an interpretation is, for example, given as "July 1, 2004 (June 15, 2004 to July 15, 2004)", then it starts in mid-June, reaches greatest intensity around July 1, and ends in mid-July. The first date listed is the time when the influence has reached maximum strength; we can call this date the "peak date". The influence starts on the beginning date, gradually increases in strength until the peak date is reached, and then it gradually fades out until the ending date is reached.

 

        An influence may last for as little as a week to as long as half a year or so. It is a good idea to look ahead in your Starlight Solutions Forecast for long-lasting influences, as you otherwise may not realize that it is in effect until you are already several months into the time period of the influence. Some people underline the dates of long-lasting influences with a colored pen to draw attention to them.

 

        You may also notice that the same interpretation shows up periodically during the year; this is not unusual. In some cases the beginning and ending dates of the 2 influences are the same; the only difference between the 2 interpretations is the peak date. This means that this particular influence has two peak dates instead of one. It is even possible for there to be three or more peak dates for the same astrological influence. To eliminate redundant interpretations, you may be informed that the astrological influence also occurred earlier and that you should refer back to the previous occurrence of this interpretation.

 

        You may be wondering what the funny abbreviations after the dates are. For example, you may see "Sat Conj Plu", "Ura Trine Nep", etc. These abbreviations are given for the benefit of astrologers and they show the astrological factor that is in effect.

 

        We hope you enjoy your Starlight Solutions Forecast. For the benefit of astrologers, some technical details are given below.

Sep 13, 2004         (Sep 12, 2004 to Oct 1, 2004)    Ven 1st H.

 

        Your sensitivity to beauty, aesthetics, and sensual experience strongly influences you during this cycle. You want to be in a gracious environment, to beautify your surroundings, to enjoy and take pleasure in life, to love and be loved. Rather than actively, directly pursuing what you want, you're more inclined to attract it through your personal charm, friendliness, or endearing qualities. Self- appreciation, personal style, and looking your best is important to you now, and you may want to indulge in some self-pampering to enhance your appearance and feel good about yourself.

 

 

Sep 14, 2004         (Sep 13, 2004 to Nov 2, 2004)   Mars 3rd H.

 

        Your communication style tends to be sharper, more direct and to the point, and it may be hard for you to bite your tongue when you see something that is amiss in your environment, and especially when your territory is violated in any way. You may speak rashly and later regret your punishing words or abruptness. Your relationship with your neighbors could become rather contentious, especially if they are somewhat unfriendly to begin with. Redirect these energies toward challenging mental tasks or work and avoid rushing and pushing your way through traffic, or provoking arguments over trifles.

 

 

Sep 14, 2004         (Sep 13, 2004 to Oct 17, 2004)   Sun 3rd H.

 

        Light social interaction promotes healthy relations with neighbors, those who are a part of your immediate environment, and people you do business with on a regular basis. Give other people a little extra time and attention, notice their efforts on your behalf, and strengthen your connections. Don't overlook the obvious! Sometimes what you need is right in front of your eyes. Pay attention to what's close at hand.

 

 

Sep 24, 2004         (Sep 23, 2004 to Oct 12, 2004)  Merc 3rd H.

 

        You crave communication and mental stimulation during this period, and you're apt to get plenty of it now, including casual conversation, local "news" and/or gossip, and a variety of interesting tidbits, ideas, and information. Sorting through it all, and not getting too sidetracked by random, unrelated data, may challenge you. You're an idea gatherer and a messenger or conduit for information during this cycle. This is an excellent time to write, as well, especially articles or letters.

 

 

Oct 1, 2004          (Sep 30, 2004 to Oct 22, 2004)   Ven 2nd H.

 

        You appreciate fine things and are attracted to beautiful objects and artistry, as well as anything that enhances your pleasure, comfort, and enjoyment. Making purchases and investments in luxury items, beautiful property, or other things of lasting value and appeal is favored now. However you are more inclined to let personal tastes and your love for something or someone dictate your choices rather than objective considerations, and thus you may pay more for these things than you might at other times. You are not only interested in acquiring but also in sharing and sweetly giving. You value love and friendship a great deal now, and you want to show it.

 

 

Oct 1, 2004      4 PM(Oct 1, 2004 to Oct 2, 2004)  Merc Conj Nep

 

        You may notice that your mind is a bit fuzzy at the moment, or that you just can't concentrate on practical matters and immediate tasks. Perhaps you need a mental vacation, like reading a book that captures your imagination, going to see a movie, as simply relaxing your mental focus and enjoying the magic of the birds singing outside your window. Minor miscommunications or misunderstandings can arise now. Certainly it is not the best day to negotiate a business transaction or any other activity that requires sharp, decisive discrimination. You might miss important pieces, so save such activities for another day.

 

 

Oct 2, 2004      8 AM(Oct 1, 2004 to Oct 3, 2004) Merc Sxtil Asc

 

        Communication, learning, or being a messenger or conduit for information is favored now. You express yourself clearly and intelligently, getting your views across with ease. Friendly or casual encounters can lead you to information you can benefit from right now. You may want to visit a book store, or make some phone calls you've been putting off.

 

 

Oct 2, 2004     12 PM(Oct 1, 2004 to Oct 3, 2004) Sun Sxtil Merc

 

        A free flow of ideas, lively interactions, and a positive environment for learning and communication is featured. This is a good time to meet people for business or commercial purposes, to make connections via speaking or writing, and to use your mind. Clarity of thought and of expression eases your way now. This is an excellent time to take a test or make an important phone call or meeting.

 

 

Oct 3, 2004      6 AM(Oct 2, 2004 to Oct 4, 2004)  Sun Sxtil Plu

 

        Unusual creative power is available to you today. An intensity of focus that borders on the extreme allows you to accomplish a great deal now. You also gain deeper insights and awareness about something which helps you understand and work with it better. You may want to get rid of something that's outlived its function because it is easier to part with things now than it might be on another day.

 

 

Oct 3, 2004      8 PM(Oct 3, 2004 to Oct 4, 2004)Merc Sxtil Merc

 

        Today, expect a free flow of ideas, stimulating conversations, and making the right connections at the right time. All intellectual activities are favored now, including writing, speaking, making presentations, getting your ideas across, reading, learning, and conducting business. You enjoy being a messenger, a conduit for information in some manner or form. Casual contacts go well.

 

 

Oct 4, 2004      6 AM(Oct 3, 2004 to Oct 5, 2004) Merc Sxtil Plu

 

        You are interested in complexity, depth, the mysterious, the hidden, or the primitive, whether you are looking for the secrets of lost civilizations or probing a thorny psychological problem. What you read, watch, think about or discuss is apt to contain these elements. You can also be quite a convincing speaker but beware of overstating your case. Your words are potent now.

 

 

Oct 5, 2004      8 AM(Oct 3, 2004 to Oct 6, 2004)  Mars Conj Nep

 

        Your creative imagination is stimulated, and you may feel an impulse to act out some fantasy or long cherished dream, without your usual concerns and constraints about what is practical, normal, and so on. In your mind you can do the impossible and explore all possibilities. You may be a bit unfocused on the immediate here-and-now, however. Avoid foolish dares and intoxicants, especially when driving or near water. Do something that delights your soul and has no practical use whatsoever, but don't disregard common sense.

 

 

Oct 6, 2004      2 AM(Oct 5, 2004 to Oct 7, 2004)   Merc Sqr Sun

 

        Opening up lines of communication, actively initiating discussions, and conducting business over the telephone, by email, or through the written word is the theme of the day. You are clear and factual, and probably more chatty than usual. You may be inundated with phone calls or be running around a lot as well. It may be hard for you to sit still. A busy day!

 

 

Oct 6, 2004     12 PM(Oct 5, 2004 to Oct 7, 2004)    Sun Sqr Sun

 

        Honoring others' personal style, desires, and objectives while not turning away from your own is a challenge at this time. Significant encounters, while not entirely harmonious, are likely. You can learn from the personal differences and contrasts presented now, and become clearer regarding your own path.

 

 

Oct 7, 2004      4 AM(Oct 5, 2004 to Oct 8, 2004) Mars Sxtil Asc

 

        Your vital energy is flowing strongly and you feel pleasantly ambitious and effective. You can rally others to action because of your own enthusiasm and can-do attitude, but you're equally happy acting independently and on your own behalf. Physical, active work or play is favored.

 

 

Oct 7, 2004      7 PM(Oct 7, 2004 to Oct 8, 2004) Merc Conj Moon

 

        This is a day of intimate conversation, speaking with women or someone you feel especially close to, and sharing on a personal, feeling level. Your mind turns toward the past, either fondly or regretfully. Telling your story or listening to others' stories and reflecting on your personal history is featured. You may want to spend some part of the day journaling or calling old friends. Thoughts about your home arise now, also. You could enjoy skimming magazines to get ideas for your living space, or even consult a feng shui expert.

 

 

Oct 8, 2004      3 PM(Oct 8, 2004 to Oct 9, 2004)  Merc Conj Jup

 

        Your thinking and your conversations turn to large topics, future trends, and inspirational themes. You are considering what is important to you in the long run. You can see the patterns and themes which weave together many pieces into a coherent whole. As a result, you have a more humorous and tolerant outlook. Practically speaking, this is a good time to write for a large audience, to get something out to be published, to make business contacts, or to speak in public.

 

 

Oct 8, 2004          (Sep 23, 2004 to Dec 24, 2004) Sat Conj Sat

 

        This is a time of coming home to yourself, of needing to be true to your essential and unique nature. It can be a time of sobering realizations as you meet the results of the choices you've made over time. Compromises made for the sake of social acceptance or material security, shortcuts attempted, or living out someone else's life pattern may lead to a sense of inadequacy and emptiness, regardless of how "successful" you may seem to be.

 

        If your decisions have been basically authentic and sound, however, this is a time of culmination and deeper commitment to the life you have chosen.

 

        Give yourself some time for introspection to assess your journey, cut your losses, and garner the wisdom from your "mistakes". Deep self-honesty is required now.

 

        Because this is both the close of a major cycle and the beginning of the next, many changes may occur such as variations in professional status or direction, ending significant relationships, and pruning away all life-depleting involvements.

 

Positive Potentials:

 

        Solidification, completion, culminations, fulfillment of important life goals. Feeling good about new commitments.

 

Negative Potentials:

 

        Failures; personal crisis accompanied by an urgent desire to begin living your "real" life. If you have been living without integrity or alignment with your true nature, there will be disappointments, losses, and the stripping away of self-illusions. A strong feeling of pressure.

 

Remedies and Suggestions:

 

        Deep and rigorous self-honesty without excessive harshness or self-condemnation is the requirement of the time, but don't allow yourself to move into despair. Remember "it's only too late if you don't start now". Be willing to bring things to completion and to make firm commitments even if they necessitate letting some options go.

 

 

Oct 9, 2004      5 AM(Oct 8, 2004 to Oct 10, 2004)Merc Trine Ura

 

        You have a touch of creative genius in your thinking today. Your ability to see things in a new light, to experiment and think outside the box, can deliver up some surprising insights. You may be moved by an out-of-the-blue impulse to call or contact someone, to vary your usual route or to do things in a different order than you normally would. Doing small things like this keeps you awake and interested.

 

 

Oct 9, 2004     11 AM(Oct 8, 2004 to Oct 10, 2004) Sun Conj Moon

 

        Your inner emotional state of being and your feelings about your life are illuminated now. If all is well with you, especially in your home life, this will be a source of strength and joy. If something is amiss or out of balance, that will be especially evident. Don't avoid or neglect the subtle signals. Give yourself permission to feel, to listen and to "know" with your body and feelings what is so.

 

 

Oct 10, 2004     2 PM(Oct 10, 2004 to Oct 11, 2004)Merc Sxtil Ven

 

        Communicating affection and appreciation come easily to you today. You speak personably and pleasantly now, making even casual interactions sweet. By overlooking superficial differences and focusing on harmonizing and understanding, you build bridges between yourself and others or between two parties who have been at odds. This is also a wonderful time to send flowers, write a love letter, or to discuss matters of aesthetics and personal style. Heavy topics will wait for another day.

 

 

Oct 10, 2004    10 PM(Oct 9, 2004 to Oct 11, 2004)  Sun Conj Jup

 

        Your best self shines forth and you radiate an expectation of success, which can open many doors for you at this time. You are drawn to the people, places, ideas, or information that can profit you the most, and whatever comes to you now is apt to be of benefit. Extending yourself, widening your comfort zone, reaching out, and acting on your intuition enables you to make the most of this fortuitous moment.

 

 

Oct 11, 2004     8 AM(Oct 9, 2004 to Oct 12, 2004)Mars Sxtil Merc

 

        You say what you mean in a very clear, direct, and compelling way, which short circuits any problems that could arise from ambiguity or indecisiveness. It's an excellent time to do an oral presentation, take an exam, tell your side of the story and convince others of your opinion. Be sure to listen as well. You enjoy intellectual activities and stimulation, conversation, and problem solving.

 

 

Oct 11, 2004    11 AM(Oct 10, 2004 to Oct 12, 2004)Ven Conj Mars

 

        Selfish or competitive impulses are softened by a desire for harmony, relatedness, and connection. Activities that combine power or passion with grace are favored now, as in dancing, playing music, making art or love, or perhaps some kinds of sports. Doing something vigorous with a lover or friends, rather than just talking or hanging out, would be ideal. Affectionate feelings can intensify into an adoring romance.

 

 

Oct 11, 2004    11 PM(Oct 10, 2004 to Oct 12, 2004)Sun Trine Ura

 

        Creative license, spontaneity, improvisation,  and discovery are stimulated now. This is a good time for any activity that requires you to experiment and think outside the box. Your freedom to express yourself in your own way is quite important to you at the moment.

 

 

Oct 12, 2004     5 AM(Oct 11, 2004 to Oct 13, 2004)Merc Oppos MC

 

        Intelligently organizing, planning, or taking care of correspondence would be wise now. The more uncluttered and systematic you are, the more good ideas, decisions, and directions can emerge. Speaking with a parent or elder and getting their perspective, or working something through with them, is also useful now.

 

 

Oct 12, 2004         (Oct 11, 2004 to Nov 5, 2004)   Merc 4th H.

 

        There's apt to be a lot of activity, discussion, comings and goings, and possibly short-term visitors in your home during this cycle. Conversations are apt to turn to the past, and you can get a more objective view of your family history and how others perceived past events. Open family dialogue is favored now. Writing about your feelings and having deep, soulful discussions clarify your understanding.

 

 

Oct 12, 2004    12 PM(Oct 10, 2004 to Oct 14, 2004)Mars Sxtil Plu

 

        Your passion, zeal, and inner courage are intensified now, making you enormously effective. You are super-motivated and can tackle tough challenges with confidence. You may take something old and completely re-do, re-make, revise, or renew it. Your creative power is flowing!

 

 

Oct 13, 2004     3 PM(Oct 13, 2004 to Oct 14, 2004) Merc Sqr Sat

 

        You tend to see road blocks and obstacles, or come up against skepticism and doubt from within yourself or from others. Listen to the voice of prudence and caution, and do not attempt to press forward. Instead, pull back and see the flaws that can be worked on. Focus on repairs, strengthening weak areas, cleaning up and refining your presentation. Beware of letting negative voices dampen your spirits, however.

 

 

Oct 14, 2004     7 AM(Oct 13, 2004 to Oct 15, 2004)Sun Sxtil Ven

 

        Pleasantness and a personal touch ease all situations you find yourself in. You're in a lighthearted mood and prefer being around people you enjoy and can relax with, and unless your work pleases you, you probably won't want to do it. The sweet and frivolous side of life, or doing something just for pleasure, is emphasized now.

 

 

Oct 15, 2004     6 AM(Oct 14, 2004 to Oct 16, 2004)Ven Sxtil Sun

 

        Being with people and enjoying good times (especially with beautiful, charming, lighthearted people) is really what you want now. You're in a friendly and cooperative mood which brings ease to your interactions and an overall sense of harmony to your day. Because you are open to love and friendly gestures, you will attract loving people into your experience.

 

 

Oct 17, 2004     1 AM(Oct 16, 2004 to Oct 18, 2004) Sun Oppos MC

 

        Relations with men, people in authority, or father figures are featured today. You may be thinking about past successes or failures and how those influence what you aim for now. There may be some friction between your will and someone else's and a need to humble yourself in order for things to proceed. Seek win-win situations.

 

 

Oct 17, 2004         (Oct 16, 2004 to Nov 22, 2004)   Sun 4th H.

 

        Focus on cultivating and nourishing those inner foundations that support your life: home, family, heritage, a peaceful soul. This is a time to collect yourself, and to fill your own well, however you do this. Time-honored traditions or activities from the past that you used to enjoy hold meaning for you now. You may also want to express yourself and your unique tastes and interests in your home.

 

 

Oct 17, 2004     9 AM(Oct 15, 2004 to Oct 18, 2004) Mars Sqr Sun

 

        You're apt to be impatient and to use more force than is called for when minor differences arise. You may instigate, aggravate, or stir up trouble either without realizing it (by being too loud, overstepping others' boundaries, or making assumptions), or even on purpose. You could use this abundance of energy for accomplishment, if you so choose. Tone down aggressive tendencies by wearing soft shades of blue, lavender, or pink, and avoid red or orange.

 

 

Oct 19, 2004     8 AM(Oct 18, 2004 to Oct 20, 2004)  Sun Sqr Sat

 

        You may feel somewhat diminished or discouraged now, perhaps from a rejection or other disheartening event. In any case, no quick or immediate satisfaction is likely now. It's best to slow down, conserve your energy, and simply get to work on what needs to be done. Rather than blame the world for thwarting you, attend to your immediate obligations. Do something to organize and bring order to your environment or practical affairs. You'll feel better if you can make some concrete progress, no matter how small.

 

 

Oct 19, 2004     7 PM(Oct 18, 2004 to Oct 20, 2004)  Ven Sqr Ura

 

        Some tension between being independent and being close or intimately involved could arise now.  A need for some personal space or an urge to temporarily disengage and go off on your own may be part of this, or a friend or partner may express those needs. A last-minute change of plans, or some other unexpected event, challenges your ability to stay connected; a sudden break or a quick beginning to a new friendship or romance is equally likely.

 

 

Oct 20, 2004     5 AM(Oct 19, 2004 to Oct 21, 2004) Merc Sqr Asc

 

        Your curiosity is piqued and you may innocently involve yourself in something that's none of your business. Overhearing conversations or being drawn into gossipy chats purely out of boredom could be a part of this. You need to keep yourself busy, but try not to scatter your energy into too many directions today.

 

 

Oct 21, 2004     2 PM(Oct 20, 2004 to Oct 22, 2004)Merc Sxtil Mars

 

        You speak clearly, directly, and honestly about what you want now, and your lack of ambiguity is compelling. If you need to convince or persuade another, this is the time to do it. You are sharp in negotiations, and respond quickly and intelligently, but you may unwittingly fail to listen, empathize, or receive the other person's side of things.

 

 

Oct 21, 2004     9 PM(Oct 20, 2004 to Oct 23, 2004)Mars Conj Moon

 

        You're in an impatient, eager, or competitive mood now, and feel more contented in a self-directed activity than in schmoozing with people, watching passively, or waiting for someone else to act. You could snap at your children or house mates with irritation or built-up tensions, or try to motivate them in a direction of your choosing. Doing something active on your own will most satisfy your soul. Go kayaking, take a vigorous hike, or clean out the garage!

 

 

Oct 21, 2004    10 PM(Oct 21, 2004 to Oct 22, 2004)Merc Sqr Merc

 

        Intellectual bantering or a difference of opinion may create some friction now, but you can gain objectivity and another way of seeing something. You may be restless, curious, and in need of intellectual stimulation, or feel a bit overstimulated and nervous. You don't need caffeine! Slow down a little, especially in traffic.

 

 

Oct 22, 2004    10 AM(Oct 21, 2004 to Oct 23, 2004) Merc Sqr Plu

 

        Your conversations and interactions take on an intensity you normally wouldn't expect from casual encounters. You or another person may reveal something very personal and private, or bring up deep topics that are rarely discussed. Very strong views, bordering on the fanatical, or thoughts expressed with a lot of emotion may stir up resistance. You can be keenly insightful now, but beware of forcing any kind of agenda onto those around you.

 

 

Oct 22, 2004         (Oct 21, 2004 to Nov 17, 2004)   Ven 3rd H.

 

        Courteous and friendly relations with neighbors and others in your immediate environment typify this time cycle. It's a time of peacemaking and forming bridges of good will and cooperation with people you meet on a daily or casual basis. Sending notes of appreciation and similar loving gestures lighten the atmosphere. Take time to do little favors, exchange pleasantries, notice the flowers in your neighbor's garden, and comment on the positive things you see around you. Focus on humor and lighthearted conversation.

 

 

Oct 22, 2004         (Oct 18, 2004 to Oct 27, 2004) Jup Conj Nep

 

        Expanded feelings of hope and faith, positive expectation and belief color this time period for you. You take a vacation from realism, skepticism, and conservatism, and indulge in far reaching fantasies and dreams, philosophical speculations, or idealistic wishes. You may long to travel to an exotic or romantic place, and if you have the means, this would be a fine time to do so. You also want to make ordinary life more ideal or magical. You may be distracted from your usual tasks, less attentive to work that involves detail or routine, more restless and discontented with the limits in your life.

 

        A spirit of great altruism and sympathy for the welfare of others may visit you also, inspiring you to give generously and participate more widely in the world around you.

 

Positive Potentials:

 

        Positive hopes and faith lead to positive expectations. Greater trust in and sense of connection to the larger reality. Concern for the greater good and the care and protection of those near and far. Dreaming big dreams. Visiting a magical place.

 

Negative Potentials:

 

        Grandiosity and inflated expectations may lead you to gamble or take financial risks based on overly optimistic assumptions. Ungrounded, unrealistic, and naive idealism.

 

Remedies and Suggestions:

 

        Take a vacation from your usual concerns, worries, and efforts. Read books that carry you away, that inspire you to live more hopefully, that expand your vision and sense of what is possible. Let your imagination explore possibilities. Let yourself dream big dreams for you and the world.

 

        However, beware of trusting too much in luck or providence. If you want to live out your dreams then be willing to actualize them by taking realistic steps, rather than hoping they will fall into your lap. Or, you can first enjoy the pleasure and uplifting feelings you get simply by dreaming.

 

 

Oct 24, 2004    12 AM(Oct 23, 2004 to Oct 25, 2004) Ven Qucnx MC

 

        You enjoy playing the role of hostess or host, displaying your good taste, affection, and appreciation for the finer things. Lightness, humor, and good times shared is the focus for you now. Go to the extra trouble to decorate, embellish, bring out your best china, and show people a good time. Opportunities to come together for a celebration, while not entirely trouble free, will be beneficial overall.

 

 

Oct 24, 2004     1 AM(Oct 22, 2004 to Oct 25, 2004)Mars Conj Jup

 

        Energetic efforts combine with optimism to create success. You're feeling strong and positive on all levels; it is an ideal time to engage in business, to take action steps to realize a dream, or simply to accomplish whatever you want or need. Expect positive results and you will get them .... Your timing is excellent!

 

 

Oct 24, 2004    12 PM(Oct 23, 2004 to Oct 25, 2004)Merc Trine Sun

 

        Clear thinking and an easy flow of communication make this a good day to present your ideas in writing or in person to take an exam, to learn something new, to initiate discussions or conduct a meeting. The pace of life is quickened and everyday business flows smoothly, especially casual interactions.

 

 

Oct 25, 2004     2 PM(Oct 24, 2004 to Oct 27, 2004)Mars Trine Ura

 

        You crave challenge, action, something fresh and exciting, and while you won't instigate a fight, you won't back away from one either.

 

        The thrill-seeker or adventurer in you comes out. You have bursts of energy and need to do something that is, for you, original and daring.

 

 

Oct 25, 2004    10 PM(Oct 25, 2004 to Oct 26, 2004)Ven Sxtil Sat

 

        Worries and pressures are eased now, especially if you've been overworking and neglecting your friends. You can lighten up a bit, relax, remember how to smile. You may seek out someone who is a bit older than you or a reliable long time pal to spend some time with. Your money sense is quite sound at the moment so if you're considering a purchase or investment, this is an auspicious day to do that.

 

 

Oct 28, 2004    12 AM(Oct 27, 2004 to Oct 29, 2004)Merc Qucnx Ura

 

        Making or hearing comments that provoke controversy, feeling unusually impatient with others' slowness, impulsive movements or a sudden change of direction can challenge you today. Beware of acting out of nervous haste or tactlessly blurting something out that you can't take back. Instead, consciously slow yourself down, breathe deep into your middle, and relax the tension in your head or jaws - then proceed.

 

 

Oct 28, 2004         (Oct 23, 2004 to Nov 2, 2004) Jup Sxtil Asc

 

        This is a period of positive social relationships and mutually beneficial contacts with friends, neighbors, and other members of your community. Feelings of trust and goodwill are generated, which can lead to stronger alliances, maybe even an opportunity to go into business or get involved with some group endeavor. You go out of your way to help where you can, and if you need assistance or feel stuck in some ongoing dilemma, help may come through a friend or friendly acquaintance. You may expand your social circle to include more people from different backgrounds, generations, races, or cultures, and this will prove quite beneficial all round. Take all generous offers, and extend some!

 

Positive Potentials:

 

        Linking with people in a positive way, growing through interpersonal connections. A healthy attitude toward the world, attracting food fortune.

 

Negative Potentials:

 

        None likely.

 

Remedies and Suggestions:

 

        Get out of habitual routines that keep your world small. Partake of more community events and gatherings. If you show up, magic can happen.

 

 

Oct 29, 2004     4 AM(Oct 27, 2004 to Oct 30, 2004)Mars Sxtil Ven

 

This is a wonderful moment for romance! You're in a loving, amorous mood, and if you have no lover at the moment, make something beautiful, luscious, and appealing in whatever arena you most enjoy. All creative acts are favored now. Dancing or some other vital and sensual self-expression would be especially satisfying.

 

 

Oct 29, 2004     2 PM(Oct 28, 2004 to Oct 30, 2004) Merc Sqr Ven

 

        Your interactions and conversations are on the light side now, with an emphasis on affection, humor, understanding, and pleasantries. This is not the best time to enter into any important negotiations, however, because although the tone will be friendly, you are inclined to be a bit too conciliatory or be swayed by charm. It is a much better time to go shopping!

 

 

Oct 30, 2004    12 AM(Oct 28, 2004 to Oct 31, 2004)  Sun Sqr Asc

 

        Expect significant encounters, meeting individuals who are or will be important players, at least for the moment. The focus is on relationship, balance, taking each person's tastes, styles, needs, and personal agendas into account. There may be some friction and adjustments needed. It is your choice whether you want to compromise or go solo, but including the other makes for a fuller picture.

 

 

Oct 31, 2004    10 AM(Oct 30, 2004 to Nov 1, 2004) Merc Qucnx MC

 

        Intelligently organizing, planning, or taking care of correspondence would be wise now. The more uncluttered and systematic you are, the more good ideas, decisions, and directions can emerge. Speaking with a parent or elder and getting their perspective, or working something through with them, is also useful now.

 

 

Nov 1, 2004      5 AM(Oct 31, 2004 to Nov 2, 2004)Sun Sxtil Mars

 

        Courage, confidence, and the will to triumph energize you. You are able to move your objectives forward and to get a lot done now, without stressing or going into overdrive. Your positive conviction seems to move obstacles out of your way. You flow around obstructions rather than confront them, which is apt to be a successful strategy at this time.

 

 

Nov 1, 2004      5 PM(Oct 31, 2004 to Nov 2, 2004)  Sun Sqr Merc

 

        You are apt to be busy, moving around a lot, and interacting with people on the go. You have quite a bit of mental energy and may be restless if you have to be stationary for too long. Lots of ideas are being batted back and forth. Conflicting views and opinions serve to clarify your own thinking. Seek compromises on inconsequential matters.

 

 

Nov 2, 2004     12 AM(Nov 1, 2004 to Nov 2, 2004) Merc Trine Sat

 

        This is a good day for quiet thinking and work that entails intellectual or technical skill, craftsmanship, or careful attention to detail. Wrangling with practical problems and logistics, finding intelligent solutions and completing tasks and projects are favored. You meet deadlines on time and enjoy taking care of business. A library or quiet room where you can be alone and just do your work appeals to you now. This is also a fine time to take an examination, either written or oral.

 

 

Nov 2, 2004      6 AM(Oct 31, 2004 to Nov 3, 2004) Mars Oppos MC

 

        You may not be moving ahead as you'd like, or you may find that you're struggling to get things done. Hurrying, irritability with family or people at work, and a disagreeable attitude can make this a tense time. Don't try to do more than you have to, or make deadlines for yourself that you then push yourself and others to meet. Chill out a little!

 

 

Nov 2, 2004          (Oct 31, 2004 to Dec 26, 2004)  Mars 4th H.

 

        Tackling some major project in your home, garden, or yard, or taking action on something in your home that's been neglected or needing repair for some time, is on the agenda now. It's best if you work by yourself or with a family member who is equally eager and committed to the project, however, because otherwise impatience, anger, and hurt feelings may spoil the enterprise. Strive to be kind and respectful towards family members, who may seem to be going out of their way to irritate you!

 

 

Nov 2, 2004     11 AM(Nov 1, 2004 to Nov 3, 2004)    Sun Sqr Plu

 

        An encounter or incident (whether you are a witness or a participant) may force you to look at something you would normally avoid, and you may have unusually strong feelings about it. Buried emotions and old scars may come up. If so, it's an opportunity for you to gain awareness and to relinquish old grudges, and to make peace with yourself. Something that has been hidden or in the dark comes up now.

 

 

Nov 2, 2004      5 PM(Nov 1, 2004 to Nov 3, 2004)   Ven Conj Nep

 

        Love yearnings, especially for an idealized or romantic or spiritual kind of love, are awakened now, perhaps by a film or some other artistic image. You need and respond strongly to beauty, aesthetics, the arts, the ocean, poetry, music. Your tender side comes to the fore, too, and you might be moved to adopt a stray dog, cat, or needy person. You may confuse pity with personal attraction or be especially indulgent with people, also.

 

 

Nov 3, 2004      5 PM(Nov 2, 2004 to Nov 4, 2004)  Ven Sxtil Asc

 

        A pleasant, affectionate, relaxed, or courteous attitude eases your interactions now, and may open doors or help lighten troubled situations that you've been working with lately.

 

        You can attract what you want and need, rather than pursue it forcefully or do it all yourself. This is an excellent time to go out on a date or ask someone for a favor, because you make a decidedly positive impression at the moment.

 

 

Nov 5, 2004          (Nov 4, 2004 to Jan 14, 2005)   Merc 5th H.

 

        Creative ideas and a spontaneous flow of thoughts enlivens you now. Creative writing, singing, composing, the artful use of language, engaging in intellectual diversions or entertainment, reading for pleasure, competitive games that involve skill and strategy, and simply playing with ideas are favored.

 

 

Nov 5, 2004      4 PM(Nov 4, 2004 to Nov 6, 2004)  Sun Trine Sun

 

        This is time of flow and ease of expression. You feel energetically supported and your offerings to the world are welcomed. Relationships with men are highlighted and are apt to be mutually beneficial.

 

 

Nov 5, 2004      6 PM(Nov 4, 2004 to Nov 7, 2004)   Mars Sqr Sat

 

        At this moment you do not want to waste time or energy and you may be impatient with those situations or people who seem to stand in your way or thwart your will. Resentment and an adversarial attitude may surface, especially towards those who have an easier time of it. You may be tempted to lash out at others who are really not the cause of your frustration but are simply safe targets. Instead of moving with these destructive attitudes, turn to what you can do in your own court. Self-reliance, patience, and even hard or disagreeable work can turn this time into a productive one. Find ways to relieve stress (that don't involve hurting others!)

 

 

Nov 5, 2004     10 PM(Nov 5, 2004 to Nov 6, 2004) Ven Sxtil Merc

 

        Pleasantries, humor, and a light touch sweeten your interactions today. You have an extra measure of tact and charm when talking on the phone, writing letters, or meeting people and you tend to veer away from controversial or unpleasant topics. Your mind may be pleasantly lazy. Light romantic comedies, "fun" fiction, and a break from serious striving appeal to you. Social or cultural events are favored.

 

 

Nov 6, 2004      1 PM(Nov 5, 2004 to Nov 7, 2004)  Ven Sxtil Plu

 

        Powerful romantic and creative energies are flowing now. A friendship intensifies through deep sharing, or an erotic interlude evolves from a strongly emotional connection. On another level, you may feel compelled to redesign or remake your wardrobe, surroundings, or a creative project you're in the midst of, to make it more pleasing, rich, and beautiful.

 

 

Nov 8, 2004      3 PM(Nov 7, 2004 to Nov 9, 2004) Merc Sxtil Nep

 

        Imaginative, artistic, or spiritual topics occupy your mind and conversations today. You may be especially telepathic with the people around you, sensing their thoughts and emotions rather easily. None of this is apt to be terribly distracting and in fact will probably be rather subtle, yet it can add another dimension to your interactions. Listen to your intuition.

 

 

Nov 9, 2004      4 AM(Nov 8, 2004 to Nov 10, 2004)   Ven Sqr Sun

 

        Your own values or way of expressing love and affection may differ from someone you encounter now, but because you are willing to please and smooth over differences, all is apt to turn out well. At the very least, you'll learn something about a friend or lover that helps you understand them. In fact, your differences may be appealing. As long as egos don't interfere, love will reign!

 

 

Nov 9, 2004     11 AM(Nov 8, 2004 to Nov 10, 2004)Merc Trine Asc

 

        Communication, learning, or being a messenger or conduit for information is favored now. You express yourself clearly and intelligently, getting your views across with ease. Friendly or casual encounters can lead you to information you can benefit from right now. You may want to visit a book store, or make some phone calls you've been putting off.

 

 

Nov 11, 2004    12 AM(Nov 10, 2004 to Nov 12, 2004)Sun Qucnx Ura

 

        Minor shake-ups, mishaps, or aberrations from your normal routine require you to be on your toes, or you could feel restless and create a stir yourself. You're less compliant, obedient, and patient with arbitrary rules. If you can, break your usual patterns in small ways, like dressing less formally or showing some eccentricity.

 

 

Nov 11, 2004     2 AM(Nov 10, 2004 to Nov 12, 2004)Merc Sqr Mars

 

        You may be challenged to defend your ideas, plans, or methods at this time. Thinking on your feet and rapid responses will be necessary, and a few hot words may be exchanged. Certainly you can elect to keep a cool head and avoid unnecessary verbal confrontation, but it will take some effort now. Wear soothing, cool colors like blue or lavender, and avoid red!

 

 

Nov 11, 2004         (Nov 6, 2004 to Nov 16, 2004)Jup Sxtil Merc

 

        This is a period of significant opportunities especially if you are alert to them and willing to follow through on the ideas and information that is presented to you now. What you think sounds like a good idea probably is! You may sense a future trend or see a need that isn't being met, and come up with possible solutions or intuitively know the wisest course of action. Translating your vision into some definite plan of action is what's called for.

 

        Relationships with friends, colleagues, and people in general are enhanced now. Communications are smooth and emphasize your similarities rather than the differences that divide you. This is an excellent time for correspondence and long distance communications of all kinds. Commercial or legal transactions are favored.

 

Positive Potentials:

 

        Anything involving writing, publishing, speaking, teaching, or learning is favored. You can successfully resolve differences to the benefit of all concerned.

 

Negative Potentials:

 

        There are no negatives associated with this cycle, other than not taking the initiative to respond to the expanded possibilities opening to you now.

 

Remedies and Suggestions:

 

        Listen to your friends, co-workers, and others who may bring you valuable information. Follow your intuition also, as it is apt to be clear and accurate now.

 

 

Nov 11, 2004    11 AM(Nov 10, 2004 to Nov 12, 2004)Merc Trine Merc

 

        Today, expect a free flow of ideas, stimulating conversations, and making the right connections at the right time. All intellectual activities are favored now, including writing, speaking, making presentations, getting your ideas across, reading, learning, and conducting business. You enjoy being a messenger, a conduit for information in some manner or form. Casual contacts go well.

 

 

Nov 11, 2004     1 PM(Nov 10, 2004 to Nov 12, 2004)Ven Conj Moon

 

        Loving affection, tenderness, and a strong appreciation for what's familiar color this day. Your family, children, pets, home, or long time friends are sources of happiness for you, and you'll want to bathe them in love. Indulgence, pampering, and pleasuring - for yourself as well as others - feels like a necessity now. Relationships with women are favored.

 

 

Nov 12, 2004     1 AM(Nov 11, 2004 to Nov 13, 2004)Merc Trine Plu

 

        You are interested in complexity, depth, the mysterious, the hidden, or the primitive, whether you are looking for the secrets of lost civilizations or probing a thorny psychological problem. What you read, watch, think about or discuss is apt to contain these elements. You can also be quite a convincing speaker but beware of overstating your case. Your words are potent now.

 

 

Nov 12, 2004     5 PM(Nov 11, 2004 to Nov 13, 2004) Ven Conj Jup

 

        Happy, expansive feelings and a generous desire to share and spread the joy color your day. This is the ideal occasion for a festive, lavish affair, a gala, or just a great time with friends - the more the merrier.

 

        You're apt to be extravagant with gifts, for yourself as well as others, and this is an auspicious time to invest in art, fine jewelry, or other high quality valuables. In fact, going to excess is your only problem now. If you're watching your weight or your budget, you'll be quite tempted to let those limits go for the moment. This isn't the day to deprive yourself, but try to consider the consequences!

 

 

Nov 13, 2004     8 AM(Nov 12, 2004 to Nov 14, 2004)  Sun Sqr Ven

 

        There may be some stress or lack of flow between you and a loved one or friend. Perhaps one of you is feeling slighted, neglected, or under-appreciated. It would be wise - and probably would require very little on your part - to reach out and make a loving offer at this time. Little snags or bruised feelings should be attended to, so don't allow pride to stand in the way.

 

 

Nov 13, 2004     1 PM(Nov 12, 2004 to Nov 14, 2004)Ven Trine Ura

 

        This is an excellent time to meet new people, to try on a more daring, updated, or unconventional style, and to break out of your usual social circle. Improvise, be spontaneous, and don't be afraid to show your eccentricities or unusual taste. You can wake up and reinvigorate a love relationship that's become too predictable or stale. Loosen up and remember what it's like to play!

 

 

Nov 14, 2004    12 PM(Nov 13, 2004 to Nov 15, 2004)Merc Qucnx Sun

 

        Opening up lines of communication, actively initiating discussions, and conducting business over the telephone, by email or through the written word is the theme of the day. You are clear and factual, and probably more chatty than usual. You may be inundated with phone calls or be running around a lot as well. It may be hard for you to sit still. A busy day!

 

 

Nov 15, 2004         (Nov 10, 2004 to Nov 20, 2004)Jup Sxtil Plu

 

        During this time you have the opportunity to connect with people and/or ideas that can vastly improve your life or significantly further your cause. Sharing information and power, being exposed to transformational teaching or healing methods, or bringing a powerful message to others is emphasized.

 

        Working in harmony within a group, an organization, or for the benefit or your community is favored now. You can make meaningful changes or contributions that are deeply satisfying.

 

        Educational, professional, spiritual or philosophical growth and development are featured.

 

Positive Potentials:

 

        Remarkable improvement, growth, and positive developments in all arenas. Turning around a difficult, thorny problem through faith and positive action. Important alliances with wise, experienced, or powerful people.

 

Negative Potentials:

 

        You may have to deal with an old, outstanding legal or personal problem, but with good will and positive action these can be favorably resolved.

 

Remedies and Suggestions:

 

        Take advantage of the opportunities to educate yourself, meet people outside of your usual social circle or little world, and ask for the help you need. Be willing to offer something and meet others halfway, and you'll be amply rewarded.

 

 

Nov 15, 2004    11 AM(Nov 14, 2004 to Nov 16, 2004)Ven Sxtil Ven

 

        Cooperation, affection, and sweet feelings color this moment. All friendships and intimate or personal interactions are highly favored. Certainly you won't want to be alone today, nor need you be. Any overtures you make will be gladly received. Love is flowing! You may feel a bit lazy and pleasantly indulgent as well.

 

 

Nov 16, 2004     1 AM(Nov 15, 2004 to Nov 17, 2004) Sun Qucnx MC

 

        Relations with men, people in authority, or father figures are featured today. You may be thinking about past successes or failures and how those influence what you aim for now. There may be some friction between your will and someone else's and a need to humble yourself in order for things to proceed. Seek win-win situations.

 

 

Nov 16, 2004     9 PM(Nov 16, 2004 to Nov 17, 2004)Merc Sxtil Moon

 

        Conversations with women, with family, and with people you are especially close to or have a long history with are going well now. By listening as well as sharing your own experiences and feelings, you deepen your rapport and connection. Telling stories, reminiscing, and discussing what is in your soul can be very rewarding. You are likely not only to hear, but to understand. Personal letter writing or journaling would also be fruitful activities.

 

 

Nov 17, 2004     4 PM(Nov 16, 2004 to Nov 18, 2004) Ven Oppos MC

 

        You enjoy playing the role of hostess or host, displaying your good taste, affection, and appreciation for the finer things. Lightness, humor, and good times shared is the focus for you now. Go to the extra trouble to decorate, embellish, bring out your best china, and show people a good time. Opportunities to come together for a celebration, while not entirely trouble free, will be beneficial overall.

 

 

Nov 17, 2004         (Nov 16, 2004 to Dec 17, 2004)   Ven 4th H.

 

        Your home can be a source of great pleasure, comfort, and enjoyment now, and you may undertake a decorating, landscaping, or beautification project to enhance it. Strenuous work is not what you want to be doing here, however, because it's ease and delight that you're looking for. Intimate and happy gatherings with family and close friends are favored and domestic relationships in general are easier and friendlier. This would be an ideal time for a family reunion.

 

 

Nov 18, 2004     3 AM(Nov 17, 2004 to Nov 19, 2004)Merc Sxtil Jup

 

        Your mind is positive and you are thinking in broader terms at the moment. Your intuition and sense of future trends is keen. Commercial ventures and transactions, communicating to a wider audience, teaching or learning, and making sound decisions based on seeing the bigger picture is the focus now. Send and receive inspiring messages.

 

 

Nov 18, 2004     7 AM(Nov 17, 2004 to Nov 19, 2004)Sun Trine Sat

 

        You have good stamina, concentration, and a focus on taking care of earthly realities, practical necessities, and chores. Inner satisfaction comes from accomplishing your tasks and meeting responsibilities. You may not be especially gregarious or jovial now unless other astrological factors are strong, but you can definitely have a solid sense of achievement at the end of the day.

 

 

Nov 19, 2004    12 AM(Nov 18, 2004 to Nov 19, 2004)Merc Oppos Ura

 

        Making or hearing comments that provoke controversy, feeling unusually impatient with others' slowness, impulsive movements or a sudden change of direction can challenge you today. Beware of acting out of nervous haste or tactlessly blurting something out that you can't take back. Instead, consciously slow yourself down, breathe deep into your middle, and relax the tension in your head or jaws - then proceed.

 

 

Nov 19, 2004     1 PM(Nov 18, 2004 to Nov 20, 2004)  Ven Sqr Sat

 

        Feeling deprived, excluded, lonely, or distant from the people who love you may occur now. It could be a cooling off period in a relationship, or a critical moment that tests its strength. Tending your hurt feelings without indulging in self-pity or one-sided blame is important. You may also meet obstacles or self-doubt in regard to some creative project you're in the midst of. Try to work on the flaws or weak aspects of it without considering the whole endeavor a failure. Take a break!

 

 

Nov 21, 2004     5 AM(Nov 20, 2004 to Nov 22, 2004)Merc Trine Ven

 

        Communicating affection and appreciation come easily to you today. You speak personably and pleasantly now, making even casual interactions sweet. By overlooking superficial differences and focusing on harmonizing and understanding, you build bridges between yourself and others or between two parties who have been at odds. This is also a wonderful time to send flowers, write a love letter, or to discuss matters of aesthetics and personal style. Heavy topics will wait for another day.

 

 

Nov 21, 2004     4 PM(Nov 20, 2004 to Nov 23, 2004) Mars Sqr Asc

 

        This is not the best time to try to do something jointly or cooperatively. Without realizing it or intending to, you may arouse others' anger or antipathy, perhaps by being overly assertive, competitive, or inconsiderate. Minor inconveniences or compromises create more friction and irritation than the situation actually warrants. Try to keep your cool. Working out or getting some physical exercise can help.

 

 

Nov 22, 2004         (Nov 21, 2004 to Dec 27, 2004)   Sun 5th H.

 

        Play, self-expression, and taking risks to bring out your uniqueness is the focus now. Your creative impulses are bright and strong and you need outlets in which to let them shine. Solo efforts are preferable to collaborative ones, unless you are allowed to direct or lead. You take pride in your creations.

 

 

Nov 24, 2004     7 AM(Nov 23, 2004 to Nov 25, 2004)Merc Trine MC

 

        Clarity, objectivity, and a smooth flow of communication makes this an excellent time to reach a decision and/or tell others of a decision you've come to. Ideas come flooding in now, too, and you're able to assimilate all kinds of new information. All learning, teaching, or intellectual activities are favored.

 

 

Nov 24, 2004    11 PM(Nov 23, 2004 to Nov 26, 2004)Mars Sxtil Mars

 

        You are highly motivated, energized, and eager to do and to accomplish now, especially if you can determine your own pace and course. Your efforts tend to succeed because you act with an extra measure of confidence, certainty, and verve. This is an ideal time to take on daunting challenges that you might back away from on other days. Satisfying work and friendly competition is featured.

 

 

Nov 25, 2004     5 PM(Nov 24, 2004 to Nov 27, 2004)Mars Sqr Merc

 

        You are mentally sharp and quick at this time but may be abrupt, impatient, and cutting with your words as well. Aggression or hurry can lead to cuts and scrapes, needless arguments, fender benders, or headaches. Consciously slow your movements and breathing down just a bit and give yourself plenty of time to get where you're going, or work off steam by running or taking a brisk walk.

 

 

Nov 26, 2004     8 PM(Nov 25, 2004 to Nov 28, 2004) Mars Sqr Plu

 

        A hidden or mostly unconscious need to control or gain power is at play within and around you now. If you violate others' rights or territory in pursuit of your own agenda, a battle of wills (subtle or overt) is likely. There is a destructive element operating as well, which can be turned to good ends in that you can work to "destroy" or eliminate something, or completely purge or overhaul something in your life. You tend to drive yourself quite hard, so beware of over-straining or forcing yourself past your limits.

 

 

Nov 27, 2004     3 PM(Nov 26, 2004 to Nov 28, 2004)Sun Sxtil Nep

 

        Light some candles or put on your favorite music to create a mood and atmosphere where magic can happen. Or engage in activities purely for the inner rewards, like bringing a meal to a friend or some other random act of kindness. This is a day to cultivate spiritual well being and dream peace solutions.

 

 

Nov 28, 2004     3 AM(Nov 27, 2004 to Nov 29, 2004)  Ven Sqr Asc

 

        A strong need for harmony, affection, approval or belongingness colors your attitude and decisions now. Overall this is apt to bring ease and engender positive feelings in your interactions and personal relationships, but in a situation in which you need to move forcefully on your own behalf it could work against you. Social engagements, pleasure outings, and even shopping are favored.

 

 

Nov 28, 2004     3 PM(Nov 26, 2004 to Dec 4, 2004)Merc Qucnx Sat

 

        You tend to see road blocks and obstacles, or come up against skepticism and doubt from within yourself or from others. Listen to the voice of prudence and caution, and do not attempt to press forward. Instead, pull back and see the flaws that can be worked on. Focus on repairs, strengthening weak areas, cleaning up and refining your presentation. Beware of letting negative voices dampen your spirits, however.

 

 

Nov 28, 2004     7 PM(Nov 27, 2004 to Nov 29, 2004)Sun Trine Asc

 

        The force is with you! Your vital energy is flowing well and your confidence is up, so anything you attempt now is likely to succeed. You influence others through personal direct contact, and without much effort. Work with what inspires you, gives you energy, or matters most to you, and expect great results. Express yourself!

 

 

Nov 28, 2004         (Oct 30, 2004 to Dec 25, 2004)Plu Trine Ven

 

        Your longing to love and to be loved, to feel deeply and passionately, and to be intimately engaged with life intensifies at this time. Eroticism and beauty affect you deeply and you feel the need to embody these feelings, to bring this more into your life. You have extraordinary creative power which you can pour into any artistic work you do, as well as into your personal and romantic relationships.

 

        This is the time to make changes in your closest relationships. An existing relationship may deepen or you may attract a passionate new love. Any relationship you involve yourself in now, whether romantic or friendship, has the power to stir your heart profoundly and to change the landscape of your life significantly. You may find yourself seeing fewer people, or forgoing casual friendships, in order to devote yourself to one person or to be with people you can "go deeper" with. A relationship may end at this time, and if so the parting can lead to a deeper appreciation for others and the capacity to really love and be close with people in the future.

 

Positive Potentials:

 

        The power of love and passion. A healing relationship. Intensified creativity, using art and creative expression to heal.

 

Negative Potentials:

 

        You tend to be more susceptible to being influenced by a charismatic personality, and may fall for someone who offers intensity but who isn't necessarily "good" for you in the long run.

 

Remedies and Suggestions:

 

        If you have ever had a desire to create, paint, compose, write, sing, dance or express yourself more passionately, now is the time. Don't hold back!

 

 

Nov 29, 2004     9 PM(Nov 29, 2004 to Nov 30, 2004)Ven Sxtil Mars

 

        Passionate love and powerful creative drives are stimulated now. If you work in any of the arts, this can be an enormously productive time when your energy and sense of beauty and style really come together. Happy collaborative efforts of all kinds are featured. Camaraderie, friendship, and affection, even with people you normally don't socialize with, can be expected. In a romantic relationship, this can be a very special time. If you wish it, make it so!

 

 

Nov 30, 2004     7 AM(Nov 29, 2004 to Dec 1, 2004)  Ven Sqr Merc

 

        It's time for a love talk! Any disagreements or problems you encounter can be more easily worked through now, and you're able to articulate your feelings and wishes in a way others can hear. You seek closeness through verbal exchange, a meeting of heart and mind. Style is important to you now as well, and this is a fine time to consult a beauty expert, get a haircut, choose clothing or make other aesthetic decisions.

 

 

Nov 30, 2004    10 PM(Nov 30, 2004 to Dec 1, 2004)   Ven Sqr Plu

 

        Your interactions may bring up surprisingly intense feelings, pleasant or not. Irrational attractions and desires, jealousies, or resentments may surface. You may run into an ex (friend, in-law, lover) or someone or something that reminds you of an old love or pain: a chance to put it to rest. You can also pour your heart into a creative project you're in the midst of, using your intensified emotions to create something new.

 

 

Nov 30, 2004    11 PM(Nov 29, 2004 to Dec 1, 2004)  Sun Sqr Mars

 

        A battle of wills or simply the stress of an overly pushy, ambitious, hurried approach can make this an unpleasant time, even if you "win" or achieve what you wanted to. Strong ego drives are activated now, and it would be best to moderate yourself if you don't want to arouse antagonism. Aim for your personal best rather than competing with others. Vigorous sports can be a good expression for strong energies that need to come out, but beware of over-exerting yourself.

 

 

Dec 1, 2004     11 AM(Nov 30, 2004 to Dec 2, 2004)Sun Trine Merc

 

        A free flow of ideas, lively interactions, and a positive environment for learning and communication is featured. This is a good time to meet people for business or commercial purposes, to make connections via speaking or writing, and to use your mind. Clarity of thought and of expression eases your way now. This is an excellent time to take a test or make an important phone call or meeting.

 

 

Dec 1, 2004      2 PM(Nov 30, 2004 to Dec 3, 2004)Mars Trine Sun

 

        Your positive, outgoing, action-oriented, "yang" energy is stimulated now. You won't want to be contained or sitting still for long periods; vigorous sports, outdoor adventures, and physical expression are indicated instead. You are the favorite for any competitive activity you're engaged in, and you're apt to make whatever you do now a race or contest!

Dec 2, 2004      5 AM(Dec 1, 2004 to Dec 3, 2004)  Sun Trine Plu

 

        Unusual creative power is available to you today. An intensity of focus that borders on the extreme allows you to accomplish a great deal now. You also gain deeper insights and awareness about something which helps you understand and work with it better. You may want to get rid of something that's outlived its function because it is easier to part with things now than it might be on another day.

 

 

Dec 3, 2004     12 PM(Dec 2, 2004 to Dec 4, 2004)  Ven Trine Sun

 

        Being with people and enjoying good times (especially with beautiful, charming, lighthearted people) is really what you want now. You're in a friendly and cooperative mood which brings ease to your interactions and an overall sense of harmony to your day. Because you are open to love and friendly gestures, you will attract loving people into your experience.

 

 

Dec 4, 2004          (Nov 28, 2004 to Dec 10, 2004)  Jup Sqr Sun

 

        Challenging limitations and stretching beyond them is a focus at this time. You find yourself aiming for greater freedom and self-expression.

 

Positive Potentials:

 

        Feeling encouraged and empowered. High vitality. New hope or a new vision for what you can create in the future. Opening new channels for self-expression, personal influence or affluence.

 

Negative Potentials:

 

        Restlessness; severe discontent with circumstances that are (or that you presently feel will be) too small or confining, accompanied by a tendency to go way out on a limb financially, professionally, or otherwise. Wanting more, bigger, better and/or living for the future without attending sufficiently to the in-between steps.

 

        Premature or ill-considered business transactions, or financial decisions. Biting off more than you can chew. Trouble with or dissatisfaction in dealing with the legal system, the government, or bureaucracy. Being overly generous, inflated expectations, wastefulness.

 

Remedies and Suggestions:

 

        Use tact, discretion, and self-restraint when presenting yourself, your work, or your plans. Your enthusiasm and good intentions can be conveyed without making exaggerated claims or promises. Conversely, don't let greed or wishful thinking obscure your discrimination when presented with an opportunity.

 

        Put away your credit cards. Try to settle disputes fairly, and out of court. If you're beginning a new sport or outdoor activity, don't try to impress. Use common sense and be moderate. Enjoy yourself on the slopes, on the playing field, or wherever, but don't overdo it.

 

        Listen to other people and avoid being ostentatious or preachy. Be a learner as well as a teacher.

 

 

Dec 5, 2004      9 AM(Dec 4, 2004 to Dec 6, 2004)  Sun Qucnx Sun

 

        Honoring others' personal style, desires, and objectives which not turning away from your own is a challenge at this time. Significant encounters, while not entirely harmonious, are likely. You can learn from the personal differences and contrasts presented now, and become cleared regarding your own path.

Dec 7, 2004      7 PM(Dec 6, 2004 to Dec 8, 2004)  Ven Qucnx Ura

 

        Some tension between being independent and being close or intimately involved could arise now.  A need for some personal space or an urge to temporarily disengage and go off on your own may be part of this, or a friend or partner may express those needs. A last-minute change of plans, or some other unexpected event, challenges your ability to stay connected; a sudden break or a quick beginning to a new friendship or romance is equally likely.

Dec 8, 2004      6 AM(Dec 7, 2004 to Dec 9, 2004) Sun Sxtil Moon

 

        You enjoy being around both men and women at this time and, in fact, you need to be with others, especially those you know pretty well and trust. Having a sense of familiarity and comfort in your surroundings and interactions boosts your confidence. Everyday relationships are supportive and warm at the moment.

 

 

Dec 8, 2004          (Sep 23, 2004 to Dec 24, 2004) Sat Conj Sat

 

        This is a time of coming home to yourself, of needing to be true to your essential and unique nature. It can be a time of sobering realizations as you meet the results of the choices you've made over time. Compromises made for the sake of social acceptance or material security, shortcuts attempted, or living out someone else's life pattern may lead to a sense of inadequacy and emptiness, regardless of how "successful" you may seem to be.

 

        If your decisions have been basically authentic and sound, however, this is a time of culmination and deeper commitment to the life you have chosen.

 

        Give yourself some time for introspection to assess your journey, cut your losses, and garner the wisdom from your "mistakes". Deep self-honesty is required now.

 

        Because this is both the close of a major cycle and the beginning of the next, many changes may occur such as variations in professional status or direction, ending significant relationships, and pruning away all life-depleting involvements.

 

Positive Potentials:

 

        Solidification, completion, culminations, fulfillment of important life goals. Feeling good about new commitments.

 

Negative Potentials:

 

        Failures; personal crisis accompanied by an urgent desire to begin living your "real" life. If you have been living without integrity or alignment with your true nature, there will be disappointments, losses, and the stripping away of self-illusions. A strong feeling of pressure.

 

Remedies and Suggestions:

 

        Deep and rigorous self-honesty without excessive harshness or self-condemnation is the requirement of the time, but don't allow yourself to move into despair. Remember "it's only too late if you don't start now". Be willing to bring things to completion and to make firm commitments even if they necessitate letting some options go.

 

 

Dec 9, 2004      1 PM(Dec 8, 2004 to Dec 11, 2004)Mars Qucnx Ura

 

        Mishaps or disruptions due to recklessness, tactlessness, sudden outbursts of anger or impatience, and heated encounters are potential trouble spots at the moment. Slow down in traffic, and take precautions around fire, electronics, and sharp tools. Perhaps you can do something daring and outrageous that isn't dangerous!

 

 

Dec 9, 2004      4 PM(Dec 8, 2004 to Dec 10, 2004)   Ven Sqr Ven

 

        Differences in tastes, style, or aesthetic preferences may arise in a close relationship, but you can compromise and satisfy both people with relative ease. In fact your differences may be very stimulating and attractive to you, especially if the connection is a romantic one. Love is definitely in the air! You may also want to enhance or change your wardrobe, furnishings, or surroundings to make them more comfortable and appealing. Probably you'll want to indulge yourself in some way and may avoid getting down to work.

 

 

Dec 9, 2004      4 PM(Dec 8, 2004 to Dec 10, 2004) Sun Sxtil Jup

 

        Your best self shines forth and you radiate an expectation of success, which can open many doors for you at this time. You are drawn to the people, places, ideas, or information that can profit you the most, and whatever comes to you now is apt to be of benefit. Extending yourself, widening your comfort zone, reaching out, and acting on your intuition enables you to make the most of this fortuitous moment.

 

 

Dec 9, 2004      6 PM(Dec 9, 2004 to Dec 10, 2004)Merc Oppos Ura

 

        Making or hearing comments that provoke controversy, feeling unusually impatient with others' slowness, impulsive movements or a sudden change of direction can challenge you today. Beware of acting out of nervous haste or tactlessly blurting something out that you can't take back. Instead, consciously slow yourself down, breathe deep into your middle, and relax the tension in your head or jaws - then proceed.

 

 

Dec 10, 2004    12 PM(Dec 9, 2004 to Dec 11, 2004)Merc Sxtil Jup

 

        Your mind is positive and you are thinking in broader terms at the moment. Your intuition and sense of future trends is keen. Commercial ventures and transactions, communicating to a wider audience, teaching or learning, and making sound decisions based on seeing the bigger picture is the focus now. Send and receive inspiring messages.

 

 

Dec 10, 2004     4 PM(Dec 9, 2004 to Dec 11, 2004) Sun Oppos Ura

 

        Minor shake-ups, mishaps, or aberrations from your normal routine require you to be on your toes, or you could feel restless and create a stir yourself. You're less compliant, obedient, and patient with arbitrary rules. If you can, break your usual patterns in small ways, like dressing less formally or showing some eccentricity.

 

 

Dec 11, 2004     1 PM(Dec 10, 2004 to Dec 12, 2004)Merc Sxtil Moon

 

        Conversations with women, with family, and with people you are especially close to or have a long history with are going well now. By listening as well as sharing your own experiences and feelings, you deepen your rapport and connection. Telling stories, reminiscing, and discussing what is in your soul can be very rewarding. You are likely not only to hear, but to understand. Personal letter writing or journaling would also be fruitful activities.

 

 

Dec 11, 2004     9 PM(Dec 11, 2004 to Dec 12, 2004) Ven Qucnx MC

 

        You enjoy playing the role of hostess or host, displaying your good taste, affection, and appreciation for the finer things. Lightness, humor, and good times shared is the focus for you now. Go to the extra trouble to decorate, embellish, bring out your best china, and show people a good time. Opportunities to come together for a celebration, while not entirely trouble free, will be beneficial overall.

 

 

Dec 12, 2004    11 PM(Dec 11, 2004 to Dec 13, 2004)Sun Trine Ven

 

        Pleasantness and a personal touch ease all situations you find yourself in. You're in a lighthearted mood and prefer being around people you enjoy and can relax with, and unless your work pleases you, you probably won't want to do it. The sweet and frivolous side of life, or doing something just for pleasure, is emphasized now.

 

 

Dec 13, 2004    12 AM(Dec 11, 2004 to Dec 14, 2004) Mars Sqr Ven

 

        Powerful desires and amorous feelings are stimulated now perhaps through an enticing interaction or personal encounter. You take the lead in social situations or attract personal attention. Coming on too strong, not picking up on subtle cues, or being inappropriate in a social sense are pitfalls of this time. Strive for a balance between taking the initiative and being sensitive and aware of others' needs and wants. If you are usually shy and unassertive, this is your moment to come out and take a risk even if you're a bit awkward.

 

 

Dec 13, 2004     5 PM(Dec 12, 2004 to Dec 14, 2004)Ven Trine Sat

 

        Worries and pressures are eased now, especially if you've been overworking and neglecting your friends. You can lighten up a bit, relax, remember how to smile. You may seek out someone who is a bit older than you or a reliable long time pal to spend some time with. Your money sense is quite sound at the moment so if you're considering a purchase or investment, this is an auspicious day to do that.

 

 

Dec 13, 2004    10 PM(Dec 13, 2004 to Dec 14, 2004)Merc Qucnx Sun

 

        Opening up lines of communication, actively initiating discussions, and conducting business over the telephone, by email or through the written word is the theme of the day. You are clear and factual, and probably more chatty than usual. You may be inundated with phone calls or be running around a lot as well. It may be hard for you to sit still. A busy day!

 

 

Dec 15, 2004     3 PM(Dec 14, 2004 to Dec 16, 2004) Sun Trine MC

 

        The force is with you, go for your personal best! Father figures or those in a position to help you further your aims are encouraging and receptive to what you propose. Back up your words with action, follow through with a solid effort, and expect success. This is an ideal time to express what you really want, to show some style, and let the world know who you are.

 

 

Dec 17, 2004    12 AM(Dec 15, 2004 to Dec 18, 2004)Mars Qucnx MC

 

        You may not be moving ahead as you'd like, or you may find that you're struggling to get things done. Hurrying, irritability with family or people at work, and a disagreeable attitude can make this a tense time. Don't try to do more than you have to, or make deadlines for yourself that you then push yourself and others to meet. Chill out a little!

 

 

Dec 17, 2004         (Dec 16, 2004 to Jan 14, 2005)   Ven 5th H.

 

        Spontaneous loving and playfulness make this a happy period, one in which you show your heart and affections freely. All creative arts, sociable games, pleasurable sports or entertainments can also be a source of delight, and you enjoy putting the stamp of your personal style on these activities. Your romantic energies are stimulated and unless other astrological factors inhibit it, this is a wonderful period for amorous alliances.

 

 

Dec 17, 2004     9 PM(Dec 16, 2004 to Dec 18, 2004)Sun Qucnx Sat

 

        You may feel somewhat diminished or discouraged now, perhaps from a rejection or other disheartening event. In any case, no quick or immediate satisfaction is likely now. It's best to slow down, conserve your energy, and simply get to work on what needs to be done. Rather than blame the world for thwarting you, attend to your immediate obligations. Do something to organize and bring order to your environment or practical affairs. You'll feel better if you can make some concrete progress, no matter how small.

 

 

Dec 18, 2004     9 PM(Dec 16, 2004 to Dec 23, 2004)Merc Trine Plu

 

        You are interested in complexity, depth, the mysterious, the hidden, or the primitive, whether you are looking for the secrets of lost civilizations or probing a thorny psychological problem. What you read, watch, think about or discuss is apt to contain these elements. You can also be quite a convincing speaker but beware of overstating your case. Your words are potent now.

 

 

Dec 20, 2004     8 AM(Dec 18, 2004 to Dec 21, 2004)Mars Trine Sat

 

        This is an excellent time to concentrate on the immediate and get some real work done. You can apply yourself to some unexciting or disagreeable but necessary job and stick with it until it's finished - or at least until you've made some visible, tangible progress. In fact, you're apt to enjoy this more than just about anything else at the moment. It feels good to accomplish tasks and have something to show at the end of the day. Practice, refining a technique, or problem-solving is featured.

 

 

Dec 20, 2004    12 PM(Dec 17, 2004 to Dec 22, 2004)merc trine merc

 

        Today, expect a free flow of ideas, stimulating conversations, and making the right connections at the right time. All intellectual activities are favored now, including writing, speaking, making presentations, getting your ideas across, reading, learning, and conducting business. You enjoy being a messenger, a conduit for information in some manner or form. Casual contacts go well.

 

 

Dec 21, 2004     6 AM(Dec 20, 2004 to Dec 22, 2004)Ven Sxtil Nep

 

        Sympathy for the underdog or a friend in need moves you now. You may be asked to help out someone in confusion or distress, or to show unselfishness to your love partner. Going the extra mile for someone else will make you both happy, and your spiritual support may be more important than the practical assistance you can provide.

 

 

Dec 21, 2004     6 AM(Dec 16, 2004 to Dec 23, 2004)Merc Trine Plu

Dec 22, 2004     5 AM(Dec 21, 2004 to Dec 23, 2004)Ven Trine Asc

 

        A pleasant, affectionate, relaxed, or courteous attitude eases your interactions now, and may open doors or help lighten troubled situations that you've been working with lately.

 

        You can attract what you want and need, rather than pursue it forcefully or do it all yourself. This is an excellent time to go out on a date or ask someone for a favor, because you make a decidedly positive impression at the moment.

 

 

Dec 23, 2004    11 PM(Dec 23, 2004 to Dec 24, 2004) Ven Sqr Mars

 

        Sexual tension or disagreements with people of the opposite gender arise now. You may want more than the other person is able or willing to give, or one of you may want togetherness and collaboration while the other prefers to be more independent.

 

        Compromises, adjustments, and working with the differences can bring about a satisfying balance, but it can be difficult to acquiesce when desires are so compelling. In any case, encounters with a definite erotic tone are part of the picture. Wear soft shades of pink, rose, or light green to ease dissonant tendencies.

 

 

Dec 24, 2004     9 AM(Dec 23, 2004 to Dec 25, 2004)Ven Trine Merc

 

        Pleasantries, humor, and a light touch sweeten your interactions today. You have an extra measure of tact and charm when talking on the phone, writing letters, or meeting people and you tend to veer away from controversial or unpleasant topics. Your mind may be pleasantly lazy. Light romantic comedies, "fun" fiction, and a break from serious striving appeal to you. Social or cultural events are favored.

 

 

Dec 24, 2004    11 PM(Dec 24, 2004 to Dec 25, 2004)Ven Trine Plu

 

        Powerful romantic and creative energies are flowing now. A friendship intensifies through deep sharing, or an erotic interlude evolves from a strongly emotional connection. On another level, you may feel compelled to redesign or remake your wardrobe, surroundings, or a creative project you're in the midst of, to make it more pleasing, rich, and beautiful.

 

 

Dec 26, 2004         (Dec 17, 2004 to Jan 5, 2005) Jup Conj Moon

 

        No matter what is happening around you at this time you feel wonderful. A sense of well-being, emotional generosity, and positive expectation permeates this time period. There is an expanded sense of nurture and support from, and emotional connection with, others. This can be a positive new beginning in your family life. Reunions and reconciliations are likely because of your openness and willingness to forgive and to let go of petty differences. Home comfort is important to you now and you may invest in improvements, enrichments, or the expansion of your home.

 

Positive Potentials:

 

        Improved relationships with parents, children, and extended family members. A more open, welcoming, inclusive attitude toward people in general. Trust in the universe, God, or life to provide for your needs. Not needing to guard or hoard what you have; expecting more to flow to you. Able to handle difficulties with more ease, humor, balance, and perspective. Emotional optimism.

 

Negative Potentials:

 

        Excesses in spending, giving grandiose gifts which you cannot afford (to yourself or others). "Living it up" too much. Excessive indulgence in alcohol or food, especially fat-laden foods. (This will only happen if you already have a problem with overeating, drinking or spending.) Laziness or wanting to avoid hard work.

 

Remedies and Suggestions:

 

        Act on those charitable impulses to reach out to and share with and include those outside your family circle. If you tend to overspend on credit, use a buddy system. Set a limit for yourself, and once you've reached it, hand your credit cards over to your buddy - at least until this cycle has passed.

 

        Enjoy this time and remember that how you are feeling about life/others/yourself now is more accurate and closer to the truth than in times of doubt.

 

 

Dec 26, 2004         (Dec 25, 2004 to Feb 15, 2005)  Mars 5th H.

 

        You have an intense need to express yourself now, to do your own things, and to put the imprint of your own style and uniqueness on whatever you do. Competitive sports, performances, contests, or shows call forth your best efforts, and you're eager to give it all you've got.

 

        Romantic passions are stimulated and a love affair could heat up!

Dec 27, 2004     4 AM(Dec 26, 2004 to Dec 28, 2004)  Sun Sqr Nep

 

        Your will power, focus, and concentration are diffused somewhat now, and this is not the best day to make critical decisions as you may be viewing people and situations in an overly idealistic light. Hope and fantasies tend to obscure reality. You also may want to put off activities in which discernment and mechanical skill are necessary. This is a fine day for dreaming up ideas, getting inspiration, or playing "let's pretend".

 

 

Dec 27, 2004     1 PM(Dec 26, 2004 to Dec 28, 2004)Ven Qucnx Sun

 

        Your own values or way of expressing love and affection may differ from someone you encounter now, but because you are willing to please and smooth over differences, all is apt to turn out well. At the very least, you'll learn something about a friend or lover that helps you understand them. In fact, your differences may be appealing. As long as egos don't interfere, love will reign!

 

 

Dec 27, 2004         (Dec 26, 2004 to Jan 26, 2005)   Sun 6th H.

 

        You are focused on your work, and on doing your daily tasks as well as you can. You are interested in improving the quality of the service you provide and upgrading efficiency and/or your skills. You may be recognized for your excellent work, but mainly you want the satisfaction of a job well done. You also have to attend to little niggling details. If your regular routine doesn't provide you satisfaction now, you need to look at where you can make improvements.

 

 

Dec 28, 2004     7 AM(Dec 27, 2004 to Dec 29, 2004)Sun Qucnx Asc

 

        Expect significant encounters, meeting individuals who are or will be important players, at least for the moment. The focus is on relationship, balance, taking each person's tastes, styles, needs, and personal agendas into account. There may be some friction and adjustments needed. It is your choice whether you want to compromise or go solo, but including the other makes for a fuller picture.

 

 

Dec 29, 2004         (Nov 17, 2004 to Jan 26, 2005)Nep Qucnx Sun

 

        At this time subtle and insidious forces may erode your sense of confidence, vitality, and strength. These may be difficult to name, define, or track - or they may be the result of poor choices in partnerships, investments, or personal habits. In any case, this is a good time to clean up your act. Don't get lazy or fall asleep on the job! Rather than tolerating whatever is weakening you or tacitly working against your best interests, root out these people, habits, situations, or influences. If you are feeling at all muddled, lost, or vaguely "off", seek out some clear, realistic, objective feedback about yourself, your life, your endeavors. Professional counsel or even a wise, level-headed, and truthful friend can be immensely helpful to you right now. This can be an important turning point if you pay attention to the subtle (or not so subtle) signals you are receiving. It's a good time to reset your course. Look to sustaining and building up your health now, also.

 

Positive Potentials:

 

        Ability to hear and heed "early warning signals" to lessen current troubles or future difficulties.

 

Negative Potentials:

 

        Pernicious influences in the environment from actual pollutants or toxins to unwholesome or draining people can begin to have noticeable affects on your vitality and energy level.

 

Remedies and Suggestions:

 

        Be proactive. Confront any tendencies toward passivity, helplessness, playing the victim, or "letting things slide" in a situation you know isn't quite right. Putting out the effort to do so can help prevent a disaster. Take care that you are not deceiving yourself or anyone else. Beware of the easy road.

        You're in a sweet mood and are a soft touch, especially for people you care for. Your family, children, home, or long time friends give you the most pleasure now, and you'll want to be with them. Sharing food or other forms of nurturing makes you happy. You may not feel like working or pushing yourself too much now. However, bringing flowers or treats into your workplace gives you satisfaction.

        Conversations with women, with family, and with people you are especially close to or have a long history with are going well now. By listening as well as sharing your own experiences and feelings, you deepen your rapport and connection. Telling stories, reminiscing, and discussing what is in your soul can be very rewarding. You are likely not only to hear, but to understand. Personal letter writing or journaling would also be fruitful activities.

        Courage, confidence, and the will to triumph energize you. You are able to move your objectives forward and to get a lot done now, without stressing or going into overdrive. Your positive conviction seems to move obstacles out of your way. You flow around obstructions rather than confront them, which is apt to be a successful strategy at this time.

        You are apt to be busy, moving around a lot, and interacting with people on the go. You have quite a bit of mental energy and may be restless if you have to be stationary for too long. Lots of ideas are being batted back and forth. Conflicting views and opinions serve to clarify your own thinking. Seek compromises on inconsequential matters.

        Let the good times roll! A lovely sense of well-being and ease characterizes this time. If you've been under a lot of pressure lately, you can let up, let go and relax a bit. You feel freed up emotionally, and freer with your affection and your money as well. Your open-heartedness and easy attitude draws good things your way - friendship, love, opportunities, and material benefits alike.

        Your mind is positive and you are thinking in broader terms at the moment. Your intuition and sense of future trends is keen. Commercial ventures and transactions, communicating to a wider audience, teaching or learning, and making sound decisions based on seeing the bigger picture is the focus now. Send and receive inspiring messages.

        An encounter or incident (whether you are a witness or a participant) may force you to look at something you would normally avoid, and you may have unusually strong feelings about it. Buried emotions and old scars may come up. If so, it's an opportunity for you to gain awareness and to relinquish old grudges, and to make peace with yourself. Something that has been hidden or in the dark comes up now.

        Some tension between being independent and being close or intimately involved could arise now.  A need for some personal space or an urge to temporarily disengage and go off on your own may be part of this, or a friend or partner may express those needs. A last-minute change of plans, or some other unexpected event, challenges your ability to stay connected; a sudden break or a quick beginning to a new friendship or romance is equally likely.

        Making or hearing comments that provoke controversy, feeling unusually impatient with others' slowness, impulsive movements or a sudden change of direction can challenge you today. Beware of acting out of nervous haste or tactlessly blurting something out that you can't take back. Instead, consciously slow yourself down, breathe deep into your middle, and relax the tension in your head or jaws - then proceed.

         Any tension between your private personal life or family needs, and professional demands or personal ambitions come to a head now. This can lead to a crisis in the area - public or private - where you have been less present or not doing your part. Feelings of guilt, inadequacy, pressure, or being overwhelmed with demands can make this a difficult time. This is a testing period to see how solid you are in your commitments and to indicate where the weaknesses are so that you can attend to them and build them up. If you've been floundering in terms of your career and life direction, or if you've been neglecting your closest relationships, now is the time to focus on those neglected areas. There may also be a discouraging encounter that forces you to question your chosen path. You may need to stand alone and validate yourself for the time being, if you truly feel that what you are doing is right for you.

 

Positive Potentials:

 

         Meeting challenges, disappointments, or heavy demands with a steady, firm attitude. Making adjustments in your balance of outer achievement/inner satisfaction, or work and home, in order to feel more whole and balanced. Making decisions that you can follow through with in terms of life direction and goals. Eliminating and reducing your involvement in relationships or commitment that are nonessential to you now.

 

Negative Potentials:

 

         Feeling contracted, alone, not connected to sources of nourishment and meaning in your activities. Self-doubt.

 

Remedies and Suggestions:

 

         Avoid negative, depressing, or depleting people and situations, but don't turn away from others altogether. Align yourself with people who see the best in you, believe in you and in your ability to figure out your own life, and who can lighten you up a bit. If need be, seek out a professional counselor to help you come to clear decisions or sort through the muck.

        This is the beginning of significant improvement, of opening to new awareness, of learning and growth.

 

        You may sense a new direction or an unexplored possibility that, if followed, will be fortunate for you and will enable you to make a large contribution to the whole.

 

        This is an excellent time to pursue education (not necessarily in a formal setting), to teach or publish, to expand your career, and to begin to turn around an area of your life that needs healing. Overall, a positive period.

 

Positive Potentials:

 

        Increased optimism, hope, confidence, and willingness to expand and extend yourself. (This may operate on a spiritual, intellectual, or material level). A sense of connection and integration with a larger reality, which buoys your spirits and increases your sense of faith and well-being. Being introduced to helpful teachers, mentors, counselors, or guides who broaden your understanding and your world.

 

Negative Potentials:

 

        This is mostly a beneficent time, but if you are strongly inclined toward excesses, overconfidence, or grandiosity, the tendencies may be exaggerated.

 

Remedies and Suggestions:

 

        This is an important seeding period. The ideas, impulses, and visions of possibility you are gifted with now can come to fruition during the coming twelve years. Pay attention to your intuitive hunches and meaningful synchronicities or coincidences (such as hearing about a certain book that sparks interest, then seeing the author interviewed on television. Go out and get the book!)

 

        You may begin to feel a calling toward a place, an unexplored talent or interest, a method of healing, or a teaching. Even though you may not know how to fulfill it or where it will lead you, remain open and do what you can to follow through on these interests.

 

        Think in terms of participating, sharing, and giving more, rather than of expanding only for personal gain, and the wealth will flow in even more fully.
