Weekly Horoscope Sunday, February 2, 2020 to Saturday, February 8, 2020

All Signs

This week two planets change signs. Mercury moves into Pisces for the next six weeks. (Normally, it is in one sign only a few weeks but because it goes retrograde, it will stay there longer.) Then Venus moves into Aries for six weeks, which shifts how we all relate to each other. Last week I speculated how self-driving cars might create a new country song where a guy loses his dog because it was in his truck that drove away. This generated some mail! Fred, down in Mexico (from Gabriola Island) sent me the words to his clever song, written and performed with just this premise! Another reader reminded me of a country song where the guy’s best friend ran off with his wife, and he sure misses him.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This will be a popular week for you. Everyone wants you to be on their team. For some reason, you might begin to make secret plans about something or work quietly, behind the scenes on a project? Meanwhile, the next five weeks are an excellent time for you to buy wardrobe treasures. Take advantage of this opportunity! This is also a great week to travel. In fact, until the middle of the month, your urge to grab a change of scenery will be strong! Relations with others will be smooth because with Venus in your sign for the next several weeks, you will be charming and diplomatic with everyone! Kiss, kiss, hug, hug.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This continues to be a powerful time for you because this is the only time all year when the Sun is at the top of your chart thrusting you in a flattering spotlight. This means you look fabulous to authority figures – bosses, parents, teachers and the police. You don’t have to do anything special – it’s all smoke and mirrors. Obviously, you can use this to your advantage and go after what you want. Expect to be more involved with younger people in the next few weeks. You will also run into friends you haven’t seen for a while. This could be interesting for some of you because there’s a strong possibility of a secret love affair starting this week for the next month. Oh my.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Grab every chance to travel or get further education or training because you’re eager to expand your world. However, beware: Fiery Mars opposite your sign until the middle of the month, makes you impatient with others. Count to three before you respond. Anger serves no purpose except to make everyone miserable. Fortunately, Venus is now in your House of Friendships promoting warm bonds with others, especially with creative, artistic types. In fact, things will get so cozy, a friend could become a lover! Your ruler Mercury is now at the top of your chart encouraging new studies, involvement in professional organizations and making plans for your future.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Life looks good! You are more in touch with your feelings and emotions; and in practical terms, you’re facing paperwork and issues related to taxes, debt, inheritances and shared property. It’s time. Fortunately, Mars continues to boost your energy to work hard for the next few weeks. (You might be a tad bossy directing the efforts of others.) Nevertheless, you will get a lot done! Mercury encourages travel plans, especially returning someplace where you have been before. Fair Venus is now crossing the top of your chart, greasing the wheels with bosses and people in power. They like you and this is a good thing!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You need more sleep in the next few weeks, please remember this. Your focus on partnerships and close friends continues to be strong. Use this focus to learn more about how you relate to others because what can be more important than having successful relationships? We are gregarious and our relations with others either creates our happiness or destroys it. Meanwhile, two planets are urging you to play and have fun. It’s a great time to get away for a vacation. Venus wants you to travel for pleasure; while Mars wants you to be saucy and courageous about doing your own thing! (It’s not all play – Mercury want you to clear up old business about shared property, inheritances, taxes and debt.) Oh well.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You continue to be keen and ready to work hard and be productive. You’re on self-improvement kick because you want to be more organized in every aspect of your life. Great! In part this could be triggered by increased chaos and activity on the home front. If you don’t get better organized, you will be buried because things could get out of control. Fortunately, the placement of Venus for the next several weeks will bring you assistance, help and favours from others. It might even bring you money and gifts! This placement of Venus will also heighten your sex drive and make intimacy sweet and memorable. Sigh. “He was strong and compassionate and he really knew how to accessorize.”

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This continues to be a playful, fun-loving time for you! Parties, fun outings, socializing, sports events and enjoyable activities with kids are tops on your menu. This is a great time to slip away on a vacation. Fortunately, your ruler Venus is opposite your sign now for the next weeks, which improves your relationships with partners and close friends. You’ll be able to express your affection easily to others. In addition, Mars will continue to give all your communications extra passion and energy, which makes this a great time for writers and those of you in sales, marketing, teaching and acting. Make plans for some fun times!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your focus on home and family continues to be strong. Along with this, many of you are also more active with a parent. You’re working hard to earn money and many of you are spending big as well because the cash is flowing! The new placement of Venus will encourage smooth relations with coworkers. Many of you will look for ways to make your workspace more attractive. Work will become more pleasant. You might get praise or even a raise from a boss. Mercury retrograde will definitely attract old flames from your past back into your world; however, it will trigger your enjoyment of mind games, puzzles, playful activities with kids, as well as reading and writing for enjoyment.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You continue to be busy with short trips, conversations with others plus increased reading, writing and studying. You’ll have no trouble keeping up to this accelerated base because fiery Mars is still in your sign for the next few weeks boosting your energy, making you aggressive in going after what you want. (Make a point to get some physical outdoor exercise.) Many of you will tackle home repairs and DIY projects at this time. Nevertheless, as Venus changes signs this week, it ushers in a month of romance and entertaining diversions. Yay! You will enjoy playful times with kids. Romantic relationships will be favoured because you’re happy to be who you are.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

For the next few weeks, you will continue to reflect upon your values as well as your financial situation and your movable property. Make sure that what you own serves your needs and not the other way around. Some of you will want to show something off? Expect a lot of opportunity to do this in 2020 because for the first time in over a decade, lucky Jupiter is in your sign bringing you good fortune and increased happiness. Some of this increased focus on money and earnings will result in making where you live more attractive. You might redecorate or buy something nice for where you live. You will enjoy entertaining at home more in the next few weeks. Make careful plans because Mercury retrograde will create confused communications.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is your time to shine because the Sun is in your sign until Feb. 18, which is why people and favourable circumstances are attracted to you now. This week, Venus changes signs and this enhances your ability to relate to others even more. For starters, Venus will make you realize just how much love there is in your daily world. Others care for you and vice versa. Not only that, you will develop a greater appreciation for the beauty in your daily surroundings. How cool is that? Mars continues to boost your activity with groups and organizations. It might also create a competition with someone. “I win!”

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You continue to play things low key while the Sun is waiting in the wings before your birthday arrives. Nevertheless, Mercury in your sign attracts old friends back into your world. (Admittedly, Mercury retrograde in your sign also creates delays, confused communications, missed paperwork, lost items and missed appointments.) Oy vey! Venus will start to attract money to you and this is a good thing. Venus will also encourage you to spend money on beautiful things for yourself and others – jewelry, art, clothing. Fiery Mars at the top of your chart ignites your ambition and this drive will last for two more weeks, so make the most of it. Enjoy your increased popularity!

Goddess Knowledge – Pele

Pele is the fiery Hawaiian volcano goddess. The daughter of the earth goddess Haimea, Pele came to Hawaii on a boat. Killed in a fight with her sister, the ocean, sho took refuge in the glowing cauldron of Mount Kilauea (this is the volcano that had the major eruption in July 2018 – a link will be below) where she receives the souls of the dead and regenerates them with fire. In a tempestuous relationship with Kamapua`a the ferocious pig god,  she is portrayed as a jealous goddess, her rages manifesting as volcanic eruptions. Revered by Hawaiians even today, she carries the force of the volcano, with its molten lava flow, which even in destrud=ction creates new land. Pele stands for the molten, fierce aspect of life that is unable to do anything halfway. She reminds us that even in the midst of fiery eruption there s creation and new life.

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, January 26, 2020 to Saturday, February 1, 2020

All Signs

This week, the Sun and Mercury are in Aquarius; Venus joins Neptune in Pisces, Mars is in Sagittarius and we have a trio of Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. Warning: Around Feb. 8, Mercury begins to slow down before going retrograde on Feb. 16. It will stay retrograde until March 9 but will not “catch up” to the degree it was at (when it went retrograde) until the end of March. From mid Feb to the end of March is a bad time to buy computers, cars and trucks. Be smart and get car problems fixed now before the rush! (BTW, with these new self-driving vehicles, I foresee a country song: “My wife left; I lost my job; and now my dog is gone cuz he was in my truck when it took off.”

Aries (March 21-April 19)

In some ways, this is a spiritual week. You will be inspired to be the best person that you can be. You will feel gratified if you have a chance to be kind to someone who needs it. Meanwhile, your popularity continues and your interaction with younger people is strong. Mars is in your House of Travel, which is why you want to blow town. It’s also why you should grab every chance to travel if it comes your way! “I’m outta here!” Meanwhile, Jupiter and Saturn at the top of your chart call attention to your success. Saturn means you have achieved something you have been working at for a long time. Jupiter means you’re getting great press for it. Awriiight!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You will idealize a friend this week. You appreciate someone in your life. You feel tenderhearted toward them and value knowing them. Meanwhile, with both the Sun and Mercury at the top of your chart, people notice you more than usual. And they admire you! Don’t hesitate to speak up when talking to bosses, VIPs, teachers and people in authority because they will listen to you, and you might get your way. Continue to explore every opportunity to travel and get further training or education that is useful. Don’t worry about squabbles over inheritances and shared property. Relax.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This week you admire a parent, teacher, boss or someone in authority. (You might even develop a crush on this person.) Something else at play is that fiery Mars is opposite your sign and this makes you impatient with others, especially partners and close friends. But you have to ask yourself — is this impatience something in you? Or does this other person deserve your annoyance? Maybe a bit of both? Either way, be patient because patience is the antidote to anger, and anger serves no purpose other than to make everyone miserable. Instead, go with the strongest influence in your chart right now, which is to travel and learn something new.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This week your appreciation of beauty is heightened, which is why it’s the perfect time to visit art galleries, museums, gorgeous architectural buildings and also enjoy the beauty of philosophical ideas. Give yourself permission to do this. Make the effort and time because you will find this experience to be rewarding, and probably inspiring as well. Meanwhile, you cannot escape important discussions about shared property, debt, taxes, inheritances and insurance issues. Deal with these to get them out of the way. Don’t be frustrated if you find it hard to give all energy to your job. Do what you can and take it easy. Keep on truckin’!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your genuine concern for others, especially those who are worse off than you, is strong this week, which is why you will do what you can to help them. You might do fundraising for people in need. You might convince someone to go in with you to help someone else. You might donate money to a worthy cause, especially if it involves needy children. In a different vein (other arm) this is a passionate, romantic week for you, which is why you will be so focused on a partner or close friend. Relationships at every level matter to you this week because you are passionate at every level. Meanwhile, keep your pockets open because money, gifts and favours from others is coming your way!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Even though increased chaos and activity on the home front might be maddening, your focus on close friends and partners is endearing this week. You feel a close bond with someone, no question. You might even idealize this person because you admire them so much. (Don’t get carried away because nobody’s perfect.) Meanwhile, you will continue to work hard to get better organized because this is the thrust of what you want to do right now. You want to be healthy, in your best shape, and you want to be on top of whatever you do. Yes, you want to be efficient, productive and effective! “No capes!” (I think Edna is a Virgo.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You feel gratitude to a coworker this week. You will certainly feel affectionate and warm to someone, perhaps related to your job or related to any task that you set for yourself. Perhaps this person will help you do something? Whatever the case, you will be grateful and warm hearted. Meanwhile, you are still in party mode, which is why you want to escape on a vacation, enjoy restaurants and resorts, socialize extensively with fun people and have a great time at sports events and activities with kids. It’s a fun week! The downside is you might find it hard to convince others about something that’s important to you. (Oh well.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Many of you are starry eyed in love this week, which might not be practical but it’s fun. (Mostly.) For those who are not caught up in this romantic swirl, they might feel this same tenderhearted adoration for a child or even a piece of art. This is because you are emotionally open to appreciate beauty whether it is in the beauty of someone you love or the beauty of an artistic creation. You might even appreciate the excellence of sports because admiration covers many spectrums in life. The bottom line is that you will be full of appreciation this week, which is one of the happiest ways to feel. Meanwhile, home, family as well as home repairs will be a priority. It was ever thus.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your energy this week will be up and down. For the most part, it will be strong. But around Monday and Tuesday, Tuesday especially, your energy will be flagging somewhat. No worries because this is temporary. This is a lovely time to enjoy family members and to entertain at home. You will also love to redecorate and tweak your digs and buy beautiful things for where you live. It’s a fast-paced week because you are on the go running errands, taking appointments, reading, writing and studying more than usual plus enjoying short trips. You’re busy on all fronts, which makes sense because how else will you get richer this year? (Which you will.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your idealism is aroused this week, which is why daily conversations with others will be important to you in a special way. Others will also feel this because conversations are a two-way experience. Both parties will sense what’s going on. Because of this tender association with others, you will be less inclined to be pushy about getting your way. You will decide to go along to get along. Good choice and of course, this is easy for you to do because you have divine protection with lucky Jupiter in your sign. Continue to focus on moneymaking ideas and ways to boost your earnings because this interests you right now. “Show me the money!”

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

With the Sun and Mercury in your sign, you’re pleased with yourself this week. “It’s good to be alive!” You have lots of energy and you’re keen to talk to everyone – yada, yada, yada. Because you are so enthusiastic about life right now, you might treat yourself to something quite luxurious. Oh yes. Many of you are thinking about buying something you really want that is quite special, but hey – don’t you deserve it? You do! Recent difficulties with a friend or a member of a group will mellow out, especially at the beginning of this week. You won’t make a big deal about anything because you are above this. Hey, when you’ve got it baby, flaunt it!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

At the beginning of this week, fair Venus is lined up with your ruler Neptune in your sign, which will mean you feel a complete soul-union with a loved one. (Pretty heady.) This is the most refined, spiritual expression of love. For most of you, it will be directed toward another person. However, it could be experienced in a creative or artistic way. But very likely, you are madly in love with someone. (Yes, the stuff of movies.) This is why you will choose to pull back a little and work alone or behind the scenes. Although you have been ambitious lately, this week, you’re not going to make a big deal about anything. “If music be the food of love, play on!”

Weekly Horoscopes Sunday, January 19 to Saturday, January 25, 2020

All Signs

Each year, the Sun travels through all 12 signs, which gives everyone different opportunities to explore. For the next four weeks, the Sun will journey through Aquarius, which is an Air sign (despite the confusion of its symbol the Water Carrier). Aquarius energy is intellectually vibrant, original, inventive and cutting-edge! Aquarians are fabulous net-workers! They love aviation and excel in technology, computers and science. In the next four weeks, these special qualities will flourish more in all of us. Take mathematics for example, there are three kinds of people: those who can count and those who can’t.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

In the next four weeks, you will be more social and more involved with friends. You will deepen your existing friendships and make new friends. Likewise, many of you will be more involved with clubs, groups and professional organizations. It’s important to know that this increased involvement with others will benefit you. (Hopefully, it will benefit others as well i.e. a mutual situation.) The stimulation of others in your life will encourage you to set future goals or change your existing goals for the future. It’s true: friendship is the bread of life – (yeah, yeah, money is the honey.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

For the four next weeks, the Sun is at the top of your chart. (This is the only time all year this occurs.) This is an auspicious time for you! It symbolizes that a spotlight is shining down on you, and this light flatters you and makes you look great in the eyes of bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. (Even though you aren’t doing anything special.) Obviously, this is a blessing from the universe. Take advantage of the situation while it lasts. The next four weeks are the perfect time to advance your agenda or make your pitch or convince others to go along with your ideas. Don’t waste this opportunity. Use it!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

A lovely influence in the next four weeks will make your life more exciting and stimulating! For starters, you will have chances to enjoy a change of scenery. Wherever you go will feel adventurous and different and very likely, you will learn something new and interesting. In this same window of time, because you have a chance to learn more, you might take a course or study something new and useful. Likewise, opportunities in publishing, the media, the law and medicine will also arise. Use this influence to expand your experience of the world. Do something different! Talk to new people. Learn new things. Shake up your routine!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

In the next four weeks, the placement of the Sun will increase your focus on sex, money, wealth and shared assets. In fact, this specific placement, will heighten your emotions and make you feel more intensely and more passionately about everything in life. (Don’t leave home without a rose between your teeth.) This means you will enjoy expressing your physical passions, but you will also just as passionately defend your best interests in the ownership of something. Or you might defend your best interests in what you think is your fair share of an inheritance or a settlement. This same influence will also help you heal (physically and emotionally). An interesting time, indeed!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

For the next four weeks, the Sun will be opposite your sign, which is the only time all year this occurs. Because the Sun represents energy in your chart, and it is now as far away from your sign as it gets all year, this means your energy will be diminished. You will need more sleep. (Respect your need for more rest.) In addition, this polarized position of the Sun will increase your focus on your closest friendships and partnerships; and you will see the role that they play in your life and vice versa. You will see how these relationships benefit you – or not. Likewise, you will see how you can benefit them – or not. Obviously, in the best relationship, you are as good for your partner as he or she is for you.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

In the next four weeks, the Sun will be “useful” to you because it will highlight everything related to work, employment, your health and even your relationship with your pets. It will spur you to be as efficient, effective and productive as possible, particularly in your work – but also in whatever you do every day. You will make To-Do lists and think of ways to catch up so that you feel you’re on top of your game. You might also seek out ways to benefit others because this will be rewarding and satisfying to you. You will want to improve your health in any way you can through exercise and diet. So many possibilities! Good luck with your makeover!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

In the next four weeks, life will be easier and more stimulating because the Sun will be in your fellow Air sign, and this is supportive to you. You will feel upbeat and freer to be yourself! You will choose to do exactly what you want to do. Obviously, this window of time is perfect for taking a vacation. It’s also an excellent time to explore the arts and enjoy playful activities with kids. Grab every opportunity to party and have fun! Many of you will enjoy sports more than usual and be involved with the theatre, the entertainment world or the hospitality industry. The main thing is to relax and enjoy fun times with others. Lucky you!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

In the next four weeks, the Sun will travel along the bottom of your chart. This happens only once a year and when it occurs, it draws your attention to your most personal life including your home and family. Many of you will cocoon at home more than usual because it will feel good to relax among familiar surroundings. You might be more involved with a parent. Likewise, you will be more involved with family members and important family discussions. You might entertain at home, especially with family and children. You will certainly be aware of the role that family plays in your life and the role that you want to play in your family now and in the future.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Get ready! The pace of your days will accelerate in the next four weeks because the Sun will stimulate your world and everything to do with your daily activity. Expect to take short trips during this window of time. You will also be busy talking to many people, keeping up with a busy agenda of appointments and meetings, all the while doing more reading, writing and studying as well! However, you will love this busy pace because you will be learning something new and your energy will be pumped by seeing new places, meeting new faces and discovering new ideas! (You eat this stuff up with a spoon.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You have an interesting four weeks ahead because the Sun will be sitting in your House of Money and Possessions. This will stimulate everything you do with financial matters and cash flow. Naturally, many of you will think about moneymaking ideas. You might consider a major purchase. You will also think about what you own and how to best take care of your belongings. But at a deeper level, you will survey your assets and wealth and think about what is useful to you? What you own should help you, not hinder you. Do you own your stuff or does it own you? In turn, this can lead to deeper questions and speculation about life and what you own. Ultimately, you might ask yourself, what really is important in life? What is most valuable? (Heady stuff.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The Sun will be in your sign for the next four weeks – something that occurs only once a year. Because the Sun is your source of energy, this is your chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year! This is the perfect window of time to replenish and restore yourself. The Sun will also attract people to you – all kinds of people – and likewise, it will attract favourable situations to you. This is definitely a fortunate time! Obviously, because of these “apparently random” opportunities that present themselves to you (people and circumstances), you will have a chance to make headway and to move forward in the direction that you want. Make the most of this!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Because your birthday is a month away, this means that in the next four weeks, the Sun is “hiding”, waiting in the wings before it sails out centre stage in full Pisces regalia! Therefore, the next four weeks are a time of rest, introspection and contemplation for you. Think about what you want for your new year ahead? Take time to make goals because this will benefit you. When you define some goals, this helps you to make decisions in the future. It keeps you on track with where you want to go. Goals give you a sense of purpose and confidence. You feel reassured because you have a plan. They give you a sense of resolve and reduce feelings of being nebulous about what you’re doing. “We’re off to see the Wizard!

What to expect at a Pagan festival – Grove and Grotto by Michelle Gruben

What to expect at a Pagan festival

Thinking about attending a Pagan festival? Great! Festivals are a fabulous way to meet like-minded friends, nurture the mind and spirit, and be part of a vibrant, celebratory community.

But there’s a lot to consider before you pitch your tent and go bounding toward the revel fire. This article will help you sidestep some of the newbie mistakes that can dampen your enjoyment of a Pagan festival. We’ll touch on what to expect, how to pack, how not to be a jerk, and how not to miss out on the wonderful things the festival has to offer.

Disclosure: I’ve been attending Pagan festivals for around 10 years and vend at a few.

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, January 12 to Saturday, January 18, 2020

All Signs

Did you know that each sign has rulership over different parts of the body? Capricorn rules the knees; and its ruler Saturn rules the teeth, hair and the skeleton. In the last year, more people have had trouble with their joints, especially their knees, plus problems with their teeth. And bad hair days? Don’t even go there! This is because the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are all in Capricorn! This week Mercury will leave Capricorn and move into Aquarius, which will help lighten things. (Do you think instead of getting your teeth whitened, it’s easier to get a tan?) Personally, since the holidays, my dental plan has been chewing on the other side.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This heavy emphasis of planets in Capricorn is a mixed blessing for your sign. Because it occurs at the top of your chart, it emboldens you to go after what you want and achieve success, in your professional career or in any walk of life where you interact with society or create an impression on others. This influence is absolutely beneficial for you! Having said that, this same heavy influence is technically at odds with your Aries Sun, which will definitely encourage problems with your bones and your teeth. Stiff joints are par for the course for many of you right now. Because this is a great time to travel – I suggest you explore somewhere warm, sunny and dry! Why not?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Although this strong emphasis in Capricorn can encourage problems with teeth and bones for your sign, nevertheless, because Capricorn is in your fellow Earth sign, it is basically very supportive to you. This means you actually have more vigour, determination and strength to accomplish whatever it is you want to do. One thing you want to do is travel and explore the world! You also want to get further education and training to learn something useful. Many of you can likewise act on opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine and the law. This month is an excellent time to talk to bosses and VIPs. Maybe you need a raise?

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Like other signs, you too, will feel increased stress in your skeletal structure, joints or anything to do with your teeth, especially in the last year. You won’t have to rely on my dental plan (chewing on the other side) because you can count on financial and practical support from others, as well as indirectly from your partner. As Mercury changes signs this week, you will encounter more chances to travel, learn, study and explore opportunities in publishing and the media. This is actually a good time to do this because Venus is at the top of your chart paving the way for relations with bosses, parents and VIPs. They like you! In fact, for some of you – a romance with a boss could begin.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

All this planetary focus in Capricorn has been challenging for you. Not only has it been challenging for your bones, joints and skeletal structure as well as your teeth in the last year, it’s been challenging for marriages and close partnerships. The thing to keep in mind about Saturn is that it tends to make things look worse than they are. Keep things in perspective. Right now, Venus brings you opportunities to travel and explore romance with someone “different.” In addition, you’re gung ho to work hard because Mars is travelling through your House of Employment. “Hi ho, hi ho, off to work I go!” (Or more appropriately – “I owe, I owe, off to work I go!”)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

For Leo, this heavy focus on Capricorn is a mixed bag! It has been a great boon to you because it has made it easier for you to work hard and accomplish a lot in the last year. Nevertheless, like many others, you might have encountered problems with your hair, and problems with your teeth and your joints (especially your knees) because this Capricorn influence is taking place in your House of Health. Oh yes. What the large print giveth, the small print taketh away. Fortunately, money from other sources will benefit you now. Likewise, your sex drive is amped and intimacy is affectionate.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Like Taurus, you have benefited from this strong planetary influence in Capricorn because for the most part, it has been supportive to you. It will continue to support you both in terms of your career as well as recreation and playful diversions, especially in areas related to the hospitality industry, the entertainment world, vacations and anything you do for fun and pleasure. Venus is opposite your sign now, which will sweeten relations with partners and close friends. In fact, expect a surprise this week because you might meet someone “different.” (You will welcome any diversion to escape the increased chaos at home.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This strong planetary influence in Capricorn is not easy for you. Almost definitely, most of you have suffered with teeth problems and joint problems in the last year. (Especially the knees.) Even your hair might have been a source of frustration. Aaggh! Nevertheless, the best way to use this energy is to make home improvements and explore real-estate opportunities, especially this year. Likewise, you can do positive things to solidify family bonds and be supportive to family members. Fortunately, Venus will attract the help of coworkers to you. And with Mars in your House of Communications, you can talk your way into and out of anything! Not too shabby.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This continues to be a fast-paced, busy time for you to take short trips, interact with siblings and daily contacts plus enjoy stimulating diversions. It’s also a great time to take courses and learn something new. In fact, many of you are writing and reading more than usual. Despite the demands, you are also working hard to boost your income and yet – in an almost baffling way – you’re spending time partying and enjoying vacations! This means you are living your life with all six burners turned on high. Learn to pace yourself because no one has infinite energy. Protect your health and take time to restore yourself. Meanwhile, romance swoons dizzily along.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Because your ruler is lucky, moneybags Jupiter, by nature, you look for opportunities to make money and expand your world. It’s who you are. Lately, you are keen to boost your income because at a deeper level, you can see that this is possible this year. And it is! Something will increase your wealth whether it is a better salary or money from a sale or an inheritance — but it will be something. You can count on it. Keep hustling because with Mars in your sign now, you have lots of energy to explore many avenues. Meanwhile, Venus encourages entertaining at home as well as redecorating and making your digs more attractive. It’s all good!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Despite this strong influence of planetary activity in your sign, this week you will feel more serious about life. (Remember to smile in your bathroom mirror.) The reason you’re more serious is you will be giving more thought to your duties and responsibilities. Naturally, this serious influence will in turn, tend to make it more difficult to relate to people, in part, because you feel more isolated or alone. Furthermore, you will feel lower energy. Nevertheless, you will do very well at organizing and planning and creating form and order in your life because this week, the Sun is in your sign lined up with your ruler Saturn. It’s a bit like going to the principal’s office or having to account for yourself with the boss. But you can handle this.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This week Mercury moves into your sign, which means the next few weeks are a great time for you to express your point of view to others. This is because you will put a great deal of yourself into whatever it is you have to say. Ironically, at the same time, your ability to examine yourself with greater objectivity and detachment is superb. (A wonderful combo of influences.) Meanwhile, act on your strong urge to get out and travel, probably for short trips. You will enjoy talking to others and sharing your ideas because you feel mentally alert and confident. And why not? You’re the brainiac of the zodiac! (You were the first to realize that the answer to everything in the universe was 42.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

For the most part, this strong planetary activity in Capricorn has been a blessing for you but it has kept you busy! Basically, it has magnified your interactions with friends and groups and made you feel indispensable to others. People want your opinions. People want to talk to you. They will seek out your ideas as well as your company. Now with Venus in your sign, you are even more charming and diplomatic than usual, which means everyone loves you even more! (It’s almost pathetic.) As Mercury changes signs this week, it will enable you to do research and discover answers to old questions or solutions to old problems. Fortunately, with Mars at the top of your chart boosting your ambition – you’re up for it. “The game, Mrs. Hudson, is on!”

Heart’s Spirit Coven Chatroom

To Find Your Local Starting Time

I received this letter from my right-hand witch, Priestess Hypatia,On January 5, 2020. I felt as so many have asked for the rains to come to Australia to help put out the wildfires that this email should be shared with everyone.

“Hello dearest Lady Beltane,

THE RAINS ARRIVED!

I can not thank you enough for what you and the Coven members did.
I am so grateful it fills my heart with so much love.
We are fine here in Melbourne, its the rural areas like where my beautiful sister is. The family and many like them were taken by the Navy ships to safety untill the infirno subsided.
This was the place I always visit on a regular basis called Eden.
This is where my beautiful sister had her apothecary farm and livelihood.
The miracle is they are all fine, there home has some damage but still somewhat standing. The farm is all gone but at least they have their lives.
The locals are still on high alert and will be all summer.
Would you believe the fires stopped literaly at their door step.
I can’t visit her as the coast is still burning and very dangerous.
Australia just has to go on and find normality.
The poor wildlife that is suffering now needs to be tackled.
There will be a gathering to thank all the different Gods and Goddesses that answered our calls to bring rain to help put out Australia’s wildfires that have been burning since October 2019. It is summer there right now so there is a chance of the fires spreading again if they cannot get them all completely put out. So the rain will be needed for a few days to help the firefighters please continue to ask for it to be sent there. I am very thankful to everyone in their own way asked for the rain to come in before the entire continent was nothing but as.

RITUAL:

Thanking the Gods and Goddesses for the Rain Falling

LADY BELTANE: I walk this circle in the direction the Sunrises three times to keep those inside the circle safe from harm and to keep the rain energy we raise contained until the circle is open and the rain energy goes to where it is needed most to help put out the wildfires in Australia

EVERYONE: Pick up your beverage and in your own words thank the God and/or Goddess you ask for the rain from, hold the cup high as you conclude you thanks take a sip from your beverage and set it back down. Type in So Mote It Be when done

Pick up your snack and in your own words thank the God and/or Goddess you ask for the rain from hold the snack up high when you conclude these thank yous. Now take a small bite and set it back down. Type in So Mote when you are done. Save the rest of your beverage and snack than go outside to make your offering to all the deities approximately half of your beverage and snack, you should drink and eat the rest outside.

Now we will do a spell/prayer asking for the rains to continue as long as needed

For More Rain

( The intent is to keep in your third eye {middle of your forehead] is to see it rain over the wildfires of Australia but causing no flooding, wash out roads, or any other damage to much rain in one location could cause)

We call upon the ancient Aboriginal God of rain and water

To help douse the wildfires and keep them from spreading any further

We ask that rain only affects the wildfires and does not cause any damage to anything on it is own

We ask that all the people, animals, birds, and reptiles not yet affected by these wildfires escape whole and unharmed

Now get as clear a picture in your mind od the rain helping to put out the wildfires. We will all meditate for 3 minutes on this picture in our minds.

After the 3 minutes or however long you want to meditate on the rain coming to all of Australia say, “This is our will for Australia, So Mote It Be” or however you end your own spell work.

Set the container is a safe place where the water will not be spilled. Add more water as needed to keep the map submerged until all the wildfires are completely out.

I walk this circle the times in the direction of the setting Sun. The circle is open but never broken. Priestess Hypatia, all the residents, and visitors in Australia thank you for participating in casting this spell for them and all the other living things to be safe and the wildfires to stop growing.
