Your Weekly Horoscope Overview

A couple of weeks ago, I talked about a crossroads with the Full Moon in Cancer highlighting the Grand Cardinal Cross. Mercury also stationed direct at that time and All Planets are now Direct until February 6, 2017. The crossroads marks a point where we better recognize how strong a force our thoughts, feelings and choices are in manifesting and changing the reality we experience.

Last week I talked about the importance of bringing the mind down to earth and being more present in the here and now with the physical world and your body. Keep that up. Integrating the mind-body connection this week will continue to do you good.

Bringing your mind back down to earth and paying more attention to your body continues to be of prime importance. More attention to posture and your spine is recommended now. The throat is also an area of focus. Whether it is your words or if you like to sing, the voice is a powerful tool of transformation. Working with your hands well, and carefully, is recommended too. Yoga is your ally.

Spending time in nature, getting your hands dirty planting bulbs to bloom in the spring, or getting acquainted with some of your favorite natural stones by placing them in an orderly and intentional fashion is good for your well being now.

Natural, organic, healthy foods and surroundings are suggested to support better thinking processes.

This week Mercury continues in Capricorn, and later in the week we have a New Moon in Aquarius. Mars also enters Aries at the end of the week as part of our new beginnings. 

With Mercury in Capricorn your thoughts and words have a more noticeable power. Leadership qualities are easier to tap into. Being effective and taking charge is worth learning more about.

If you’re a business or career minded person, this week is great to consider how time and money are tied together. Whether it’s your salary, or paying down debt, or long term financial goals, this is a good time to focus on your money issues to gain clarity and prepare yourself to make some smart changes.

Time is of the essence. Do you feel like you have enough time? Time really is your most precious resource and you’ve only got so much of it to go around. Using your time wisely, with focus and direction, helps life become more productive, enjoyable, and meaningful.

If you spend a lot of time on things that aren’t contributing to the betterment of your now and your future, this is the week to make a change.

When Mercury stationed retrograde a few weeks ago I talked about the importance of purging and getting rid of old, unwanted thoughts as well as material items that keep you feeling bogged down.

Now that Mercury is direct, a clearer way forward is supported, but if you’ve got anything lingering on your mind, it’s still a good time to work on getting rid of the old, so you can welcome more of the new.

What occupies your mind and your time? This is a time to change your life by changing what occupies your mind. What do you think about most often? What gets more (or most) of your attention and your time?

If you spend too much time online, for example, scrolling mindlessly on the web, and having your attention drawn to random subjects without any clear direction, this is a good time to change that habit.

Get rid of those wasteful, time consuming habits that you know aren’t supporting your best interests, so you can focus your thoughts on better options and priorities.

What do you want to learn? Spend an hour doing research on a new subject you would like to learn instead of spending an hour looking at random posts or mindless gossip on a social network. Commit to intentionally learning something new every day for a week and you’ve just significantly upped your knowledge quotient on a subject that is important to you. Change often happens in little, yet powerful, steps.

This is a good time to switch out the things that you know are wasting your time, for a more productive approach. Make a real commitment to creating change. Ask yourself, “Do I really want to waste so much time thinking about that, when I could be focusing on this instead?” Prioritize your goals, stay focused and you can achieve much.

Think of yourself as having the ability to change your thoughts from lead into gold.

Remember that Mercury in Capricorn is getting closer to Pluto, the planet of great transformation. Mercury also represents the Magician in the tarot. You can manifest great changes in your life when you put your mind to it. It’s the time and attention you put in, that matters.

Business and money matters, as mentioned earlier, also stand out this week as an important area of consideration.

Mercury rules commerce, and of course, one of the main goals many people have in life is to make more money.

This is an excellent week to work on your financial picture. Getting your head wrapped around your money matters will help you decide what needs more of your attention in 2017. Number crunching will help you see where you can make corrections and a better plan of action.

Mercury in Capricorn reminds us to think practically. With Uranus at odds, if you’re a spontaneous spender, looking at how that behavior affects your bottom line is recommended. With Jupiter at odds, be sure you don’t get tempted by a variety of options or marketing hype. Make sure your money management makes logical sense.

If your income isn’t where you want it to be, or if you don’t feel as secure as you’d like, this is the time to consider how you can find your balance by cutting out expenses that are not helping you in the grand scheme of things. This is a great time to learn more about managing your money.

Politics is of course a biggy with Mercury in Capricorn. With Jupiter and Uranus in square to this part of Capricorn where Pluto is, we can expect an escalation of tension, particularly in the media and with individuals that feel at odds with the political climate.

It can be a revolutionary time for many. The economy hinges on words now, so what is said and propagated in the media has a powerful influence and can change the tides quickly now.

Considering it’s difficult to decide what is true and what isn’t these days in the media, getting drawn into the media narrative can be overwhelming and often a big waste of time. Try to stay focused on what truly matters to you most so you don’t waste too much time thinking and worrying about nonsense, media gossip and speculation. The messier and more sensationalist, the more likely it is that ratings are the media’s priorities, not so much the truth.

Debates in the media are intended to emphasize conflicting ideas to hook people in because everyone wants to feel like they are right. News and entertainment is a form of marketing. For the most part, it really does boil down to making money by keeping people engaged and interested, and marketers know the psychology behind hooking people in.

Choosing to focus on your own goals and priorities this week gives you your own power.

There’s a New Moon in Aquarius this week! The Sun is already in Aquarius and when the Moon meets the Sun we start a new chapter of growth.

This is when we put our thinking caps on about how to create the future we want in life. Remember that freedom starts in the mind.

I talk more about this further down this page for Friday.

What's Happening Each Day This Week?


Sunday, January 22, 2017

On Sunday, the Moon leaves Scorpio early in the morning and enters Sagittarius at 5:45 am EST. The Sun also connects nicely with the Moon today.

Faith, beliefs and philosophies are a significant part of life for most people. In one way or another the need to understand life and the world is something we all have in common.

Though we all differ in how we perceive the whole of reality, we all want a better future. Whether you’re a scientist developing the latest space-age technology, or a philosopher thinking of the larger picture of where we’re heading in life, the future has us all intrigued with the possibilities.

I love animals, and value recognizing how we are alike in so many ways. Though I don’t know what goes on in the minds of animals, one of the most noticeable ways we show as humans to have a different awareness than our fellow creatures is our ability to make long term plans and to set our sights on a wide variety of possibilities. We get to think and dream of a different future and to go for it.

Once you have your basic needs of food, shelter and clothing, there’s more time to think and dream about what you want to achieve long term.

So today, consider what you feel drawn towards. What kind of future are you envisioning for your life? If you had all your basic needs met, had the financial support you needed, and were totally free to create the life you want, what would your journey look like?

This is a great day to spend in wide open spaces. Feeling emotionally free and open to learning can bring brilliance. The broader your perspective the greater the ideas.


Monday, January 23, 2017

On Monday, if you’re feeling like your dreams are far away, or you feel disconnected from your higher self, changing your thinking patterns will help.

Music can be of great assistance in shifting your mood. Your music choice will stimulate your thoughts accordingly. Classical music like Beethoven or Mozart can induce improved thinking processes, enhance memory recall, encourage intelligence and boost your mood.

Mercury in Capricorn connects well with Neptune in Pisces today. It will do you well to spend time getting back in touch with the earth and spirit in natural ways. Trust your intuition to make smart choices.

Poets, artists and musicians will find this week brings much creative progress.

This is another great day to spend outside, enjoying the hydrotherapy at a Nordic Spa, or burning white sage and incense to connect with the elements.

Compassion at the forefront of your thoughts and choices is recommended today.

In the material world, the concept of money is ultimately an illusion, but a powerful illusion. It is an agreed upon idea. With this idea, you can manifest a lot of things in material reality.

Today, think about what you want to manifest in your life and why. What’s the reason you want that idea to become a reality and what are its far reaching implications?

Using money responsibly and ethically is a good way to consider your karma. What you spend your money on has consequences. What you invest your money in has impact.

Consider how you can tap into a more ethical, compassionate stance when you’re making choices on what to buy. Spending your money on a fair trade option or organic produce at your local farmer’s market is putting money towards a much different outcome than spending at a mainstream conglomerate.

Money is like a vote, it reveals what you care about and what you support. Wouldn’t you rather give money to an honest, good hearted person than a sly, hustling salesman?

This is a great day to pick up some gemstones, like amethyst, citrine or green moss agate. These beautiful gems are a magnificent part of the earth and their beauty reveals how magical life is to manifest such wonders.

You can use gemstones in meditation, in a reiki treatment, as a focal point of contemplation, as a good luck charm, or simply in reverence for their beauty. Placing stones in your environment is a great way to enjoy your space and intend good energy. To some, the practice of working with stones in a metaphorical, magical way is like bridging heaven and earth.

Consider how abundant the material world is and how magical the process of life is. Just look around at how much nature achieves every day. It is beautiful and miraculous. We are privileged to get to witness how abundant this world and universe is by being here.


Tuesday, January 24, 2017

The Moon connects with Jupiter, Saturn and Mars today before heading into Capricorn.

This day can evoke strong feelings about where we’re heading in life. Compassion for life is a much better route to peace, but some people refuse to take the more responsible route.

If you’re faced with challenges today, let them lead you closer to living true to yourself. Remember to use your time well. You can be the change. Fairness, equality and truth helps us make progress towards peace with others.

Instead of prioritizing being Right, how about prioritizing being peaceful, kind and compassionate?

If someone is stuck in their ego and it’s keeping peace at bay, this is the time to show how much you are alike, rather than different.

The Moon enters Capricorn at 5:43 pm EST today. Emotions are better placed when you are in connection with nature, the environment and your body. This is a great time to choose healthy, organic, natural foods full of vitamins and minerals that nourish your body.

For emotional sustenance, spend your most precious resource, time, being present in the material world later in the day. It’s a great time to get a massage, or practicing yoga barefoot.


Wednesday, January 25, 2017

The Moon and Neptune are in harmony today and the Moon meets with Mercury in Capricorn too.

This is a great day for a massage as well, a healing bath, a reiki treatment or spending time watering your plants. Connecting with your body and the earth is healing.

Getting a massage or reiki treatment is not cheap, but it’s worth it for your well being. However, many people consider such treatments more of a luxury than a necessity. If insurance isn’t covering the bill, some people will choose to go without instead of spending the money out of their own pocket. That’s understandable for some, but for others it seems more like it’s an issue of priorities. Spending that amount on processed food, alcohol or cigarettes instead of a healing, deep tissue massage indicates one’s priorities and value of self care and well being.

Nutritious, organic foods are of course your best bet. Too often the grocery aisle is full of processed foods that tantalize your tastebuds, but lack the proper nourishment and healing properties your body deserves. Choosing compassionate and ethical options gets you closer to manifesting positive karma for the planet.

If you’re career oriented, this is a good day to dream about your goals. Envision your dream job or long term career. How would you feel if you had a supportive income while also fulfilling your most meaningful goals in life?

When it comes to visualizing, the feeling is just as important as what you see.


Thursday, January 26, 2017

The Moon connects with Pluto today, then Uranus and Jupiter bringing to focus political issues, as well as financial concerns.

We keep being reminded of the long term trend of discontent between Jupiter, Pluto, and Uranus. This configuration can bring up feelings hard to ignore.

The political realm can be a really intense platform that wakes us up to how our own identities and beliefs don’t match up with those in the higher echelons of society - media moguls, high ranking politicians and the banking elite often seem so far removed from reality for most people. Those who rule the narrative of society are often at odds with those at the grassroots level, and it’s obvious people want and need change.

The counterculture continues to grow as we understand we’re going through a period of transformation. People want the truth, but it’s not always easy to find when there are so many different stories, points of view colored by selective bias.

Though inner feelings of discontent can arise today, they can also lead to intuitive insights on how to manifest positive change. The pendulum swings both ways. We are all in this world together, and we each can make a difference.

The Moon and Venus connect today as well, reminding us that what really matters in life is to love and be loved.

One thing people with a lot of power may lack, is love. We think of the archetype of the cold, hard hitting businessman that may have strong logic, but is also emotionally detached. The need for power and chasing the needs of the ego can be a self fulfilling prophecy. As the tunnel vision of power and money is sought, it tends to push people and emotions aside. I’m sure all of us have noticed when someone chose money and power, over love, compassion and caring.

If you’re a hard hitting business person, today is the day to reconnect to a higher purpose and to recognizing the value of love in your life.

Today is a good time to burn some white sage. It will bring you down to earth while also uplifting your spirits.



Friday, January 27, 2017


It’s a New Moon in Aquarius today! The Moon enters Aquarius today at 3:36 am EST.

It’s time to start a new chapter. Looking forward to the future with positive intentions is the way to go.

Venus in Pisces is at odds with Saturn in Sagittarius before the New Moon today. It’s not always easy to see eye to eye with others or to open our hearts to people that are so very different from ourselves. It can take effort and practice, but that is what is called for today.

When someone has a significantly different worldview, and their beliefs are hard wired without any flexibility to let in compassion and love for others, it can create serious blockages on a heart and soul level.

The challenge today is to remember that we are all from the same source. We are all connected. When faced with differences, be the change you want to see. Be the one that takes the first step to showing love and compassion as we work on creating a new future.

It’s officially a New Moon in Aquarius on Friday, January 27, 2017 at 7:07 pm EST.

We get to change the future. We get to create new possibilities. This is the start of a new step in your evolution towards being more conscious. Use this time well to plant what you want to grow in your life.

Socializing with people and joining groups that are aligned with your vision for life is recommended. Flashes of inspiration can show up out of nowhere inspiring you to evolve.

Differences of opinion can actually be the catalyst to new growth now. Questioning what others think and believe, what is true and what isn’t, can lead to profound realizations.

We may notice our intuition gets keener and uncanny coincidences show up in our lives more frequently now. Writers and inventive thinkers should find this week highly inspiring.

Intelligent thinkers, unafraid to speak up and share truth have a great ability to impact the collective dialogue now. Personal shift in awareness can inspire a new way of seeing the world.

What you think leads to how you interact with the world and others, and the ripple effect spreads from there.

Focus your attention the future you want to create. Freedom starts in the mind. Turn over a new leaf. Let go of the thoughts that hold you back from moving forward in your own light. Imagine yourself liberated and free to choose the life you want and start moving towards it.


Saturday, January 28, 2017

Mars enters Aries today at 12:39 am EST. Mars is the masculine archetype. The warrior and athlete symbolize his go-for-it type of energy and willpower. This is good when you’ve got your priorities right, but if you’re not emotionally balanced it can lead to excess force.

Exercise is a great way to bring balance to this energy. Using your energy well and directing it towards improving your sense of self empowerment and self esteem is recommended.

When you’ve got good energy flowing you can direct it towards your aims better. This brings the potential for creativity and is great for entrepreneurs to get inspired by new ideas and take charge of your way forward.

Set your mind on something that inspires you and follow it with action and you can do just about anything. Try a new approach to get new results.

This weekend signifies a new beginning, with Mars entering Aries and the New Moon in Aquarius. Set yourself up for success in life by using your energy efficiently and towards your best ideas.

The Moon connects well with Uranus and Jupiter today too, signifying the importance of your choices. Coincidences worth noting should be plentiful.

I'm all ears. Do you have anything you'd like to share with me this week? Let me know here.
