  • Spring 2008

    A sense of start and stop, shifting and changing seem a large part of this Spring period. We may want to start things up but may not have the energy or the confidence of follow-through. The season begins with a Stellium of three or more planets in one Sign: Mercury, Venus and Uranus in Pisces. We might feel that we have to take a reactive approach to life rather than an assertive, proactive approach. Certainly the volatility that we have experienced recently, whereby things can turn sharply without a moment’s notice, is en vogue. It would be wise for us to keep in mind the nursery rhyme and be nimble and be quick. Everything we do may have to take on a tentative, probationary disposition. Let’s see ourselves testing the waters, evaluating and reviewing, before launching our boats fully into the waters.

  • March 17th – 23rd

    This week has the last few days of Winter and the beginning of Spring. We may be preparing for a Spring holiday, Easter or Spring projects around the house. This is a week to blend pleasurable activities with addressing details and outstanding matters. The more we can tie up loose ends, the less encumbered we shall be as we come more into the Spring period and look to start up new projects and try out new interests.

  • March 10th – 16th

    Although we may be feeling the impact of Mars Pluto, this week has some pleasant energies. We can begin to move ahead with plans and can come up with a best practices approach. We do have to be careful not to get suckered into believing either that everything is turning in a more positive direction or falling prey to dire forecasts. The roller coaster continues its ride with some ups and downs, but this week mostly has some up qualities associated with it.

    An element of conservatism regarding our finances, perhaps seen as an exercise of how we can stretch our dollars, will make us feel more on top of things and less at the vagaries of inflation, increased costs and less disposable income for us to work with.

  • March 3rd – 9th

    We may be feeling exuberant this week, as though a shroud has been lifted. We do have to watch for extremes. On the one hand, we may be feeling enthusiastic, ready for the warmer weather of Spring and inspired to get out of our own way and be open to what the universe may bring. On the other hand, we have to be wary of people losing it, acting out, blasts and explosions, earthquake and volcanic activity, and even potential terrorist threats or incidents.

  • February 25th – March 2nd

    This week ends February and begins the month of March. Winter may be winding down, but we might also be feeling the collateral damage of winter, feeling lethargic, a little out-of-sorts and even coping with a winter cold or flu bug. At the beginning of the week, our focus could be more towards an internal evaluation that the sense of hibernation often brings. It is a time to be resourceful, to get down to the basics and concentrate on the fundamentals.

  • February 18th – 24th

    This week continues with the push pulls we have come to experience and even expect. Should we be surprised? Not really, since we are living in a time of great volatility. Yes, life at this time is quite volatile.

    And this week has various energy switches to increase the level of volatility.

  • February 11th – 17th

    This week has some pleasant energies with us able to start things up once we’ve carefully considered them, follow through and bring into greater realization our plans, a great deal of talk and discussions, and a weekend focused on our home and family matters.

  • February 4th – 10th

    This week has the Solar Eclipse on the 6th – 7th with the Aquarius New Moon and the ushering in of the Chinese New Year of the Brown Earth Rat.

    This week is also the second week of this year’s first Mercury retrograde. Are we having fun yet?

  • January 28th – February 3rd

    Another exciting week, sports fans. Yes, this week in the US ends with Super Bowl Sunday and is the week before Super Duper Tuesday, Tsunami Tuesday, Mega Tuesday or Gigabyte Tuesday or however you wish to encapsulate the spectacle of multi-state primaries for the Presidential nominations for the two major political parties in the US. Even if we’re not engaged in either of these spectacles of bruising and fun-loving games, this week is still an active one and one that is likely to have its ups and downs.

  • January 21st – 27th

    A great deal is going on during this week, much of it asking us to consider our future goals from the perspective of our ideals and to question whether our lives are built upon rock or built upon sand. While this week is a good week to strategize, put down some roots, it is also a good time for us to note those areas of our lives that are being triggered. Some of these areas are likely to be issues that we are likely to deal with over the next decade or so.
