First of all, I must thank all of you who have responded to my plea for assistance in paying my medical/living expenses via http://www.gofundme.com/2dhdgs for my impending second back surgery. I am very grateful and humbled by your responses and truly appreciate it.
My next step is seeing a surgeon on the 23rd, then I’ll know what’s going to happen. For those of you who don’t know, my legs went out from under me and I can’t walk without a walker. It’s been almost three weeks now since I can’t walk unassisted but over two months I’ve been suffering from extreme pain in my legs from three places in my lumbar spine where my spinal cord is being pinched off. So, onward…I’m used to the Vicodin now and finally have the wherewithal to write the column again!
We’ve had a stellium in Aries going on in case you hadn’t noticed, and people are dropping like flies…this is very intense and aggressive energy that will show up any weaknesses (a chain is only as strong as its weakest link) and wow, those weak links are being revealed right, left and center!
This week sees Venus entering her own sign of Taurus where she’s the happiest. She will come up to oppose Saturn in Scorpio at the end of the week, and that’s an argument best not messed with; females will feel the effects of this opposition more than males, but the guys will certainly be in the crossfire.
As we continue to watch what North Korea is trying to prove and our own response to it, the Aries stellium still holds four planets so the aggression and pistol waving isn’t over with yet. It is pretty darned nerve wracking, isn’t it? Aries is the most likely sign to produce rogues, so this country is living out the stellium by shouting and threatening and saying, “Ha ha, we’re just a dot on the planet but you’re scared! Neener, neener, neener!” We’ll see what happens. Those of you in the Winter That Won’t End parts of the world should be seeing warmer temperatures very soon now, and you’re at the end of your tethers as well. Let’s get it over with, already!
I’m so relieved I was finally able to write for you, I’ve missed it! Thanks again so much for your patience and your help!
Aries (March 21 - April 20): After a pileup of inner planets in your sign, Venus leaves to enter your sector of Finances/Resources. Since this sector is what Venus rules, you should come into a period of prosperity and success as long as you play nice! Some areas are loosening up while others are still tight but with all this energy in your sign the onus is on you to rally others without running them over! Mercury is now in your sign so your clarity of thinking is enhanced and you are afforded a broader vision than usual. Wow, you have fire in that belly, use it well!
Taurus (April 21 - May 20): At long last, your Ruler Venus is in your sign, giving you back the earth under your feet and a sparkle in your eye! You will feel your self-esteem rise as you prepare for the next stellium to occur in your sign soon. For now, use the energy of the Aries stellium for clearing out what isn’t useful and making space for what’s to come. Jupiter and the Moon in your sector of finances heightens your ability to see opportunities, so take them! With fierce competition going on, you can’t sit on the fence.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Jupiter in your sign is singing away at the planets in Aries, your sector of Friends/Goals. This is the time to really get things done with your network but be careful what you say because it will spread like wildfire so make it good stuff! Esteem-building Venus is now in her own sign Taurus where she beams out solid ground for you to stand on, based on your own experience. This will ground you and allow you to blaze a new path through recognizing decisions that didn’t work out well in the past and making better ones now. Hindsight is especially valuable now.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Lots has been going on in your sector of Career/Highest Potential with a stellium in Aries and you’re now settled into a new pattern that is trying to emerge, beckoning you to become part of it. Venus is now in your sector of Friends/Goals, giving you solid ground to stand on for your next or current new project and affording you the reliability you crave. Time to play catch-up and tie up the loose ends left over from a long winter. Jupiter and the Moon in your sector of Endings/New Beginnings urge you to make room for good things to come, and this is in the manner of opening your mind where you’ve bogged yourself down in a belief.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): You’re charged up now as the Aries stellium has taken hold and wants you to expand your horizons, yesterday! Any negativity or self-pity has to go so you can see the way forward clearly, no excuses! Whatever you’ve put off now demands attention and with Venus moving into your sector of Career/Highest Potential you have her help in boosting your morale enough to pull off just about anything. Don’t limit yourself unnecessarily! Time to think outside the box using the box as a template. Jupiter and the Moon in your sector of Friends/Goals set you up to do some great brainstorming with your support network.
Virgo (August 23 ) Feeling the fire? This Aries stellium has so many people taking action for one reason or another; some folks are suffering from an illness or injury (Aries tends to hit at the weak spots and say, “See? This is where you’re lacking, fix it! Now!”) and others are striking new ground in this rapidly changing world of infinite possibilities. You tend to look toward what the harvest will be and Jupiter in your sector of Relationships will draw people to you that can be very helpful but possibly scattered; be patient and discerning because you never know when a jewel will drop.
Libra (September 23 - October 22): Your sector of Relationships has been loaded for some time, and now that Mercury has joined the crowd there, the influence of Uranus squared up with Pluto may put a lot of stresses into your interactions for a while if you are a September Libra native. Jupiter and the Moon in your sector of Expansion will help a lot, enabling you to glean important information and weed out the noise of noncritical blabber. Your strategic skills will help you a lot now, but your patience will definitely be tested. Use your discretion to tell people off or not.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 22): A crazy good week occurs! We start with Venus moving into your sector of Relationships in the sign of Taurus, which she rules. She is very happy there and will give you to opportunity to shore up your position and role with others in your life. Be aware that the other inner planets will be moving into this sign and sector in the near future, so be alert to changes and shifts in the balance. The remaining four planets in Aries (your solar sector of Work/Health) could signal either quick forward movement in your personal mission or since Mars rules Aries and is the planet of inflammation and infections/fevers, you may find yourself under the weather if you’re not careful! So be careful.
Sagittarius (November 23 - December 20): Full of yourself as always, the Aries stellium has you fired up and thinking outside the box; knowing you, you could go so far outside the box you won’t be able to find your way back, so pack some food with you! Powerful Venus has now moved into her own sign of Taurus, your sector of Shared Assets; this signals a shift for the better in your financial situation and if you’re attentive and persistent that will continue into a full-fledged form of financial security. If you’re steadfast and reliable, it will really pay off now.
Capricorn (December 21 - January 19): The stellium in Aries (five planets total in the past week) has rattled your cage a bit, especially on the home front. Relatives or remodeling or moving/settling in has kept you occupied and your attitude is paramount in terms of the results. It’s a real mixed bag depending on your Eeyore scale. Thankfully, powerful Venus has just moved out of the stellium and into Taurus, whom she rules so you finally have a planet in a companion earth sign to rely on and in the coming weeks all the inner planets will occupy Taurus so get yourself into a good mood now and be prepared to feel even better!
Aquarius (January 20 - February 19): This is the beginning of the end of the Aries stellium (a total of five planets crowded into that one sign), and now Venus is the first to exit the party and slip into something more comfortable. She is now in her own sign of Taurus, bringing solidity and reliability to all and sundry. For you, the sector of Home is where she shines, so your home becomes your castle and you may be thinking about shoring up some part of the structure; you also may be hosting gatherings or meetings at your house, and these will bear fruit in the coming days.
Pisces (February 20 - March 20): The Aries stellium saw five planets total in that sign over the past couple of weeks, and now Venus has left and entered her own sign of security/comfort loving Taurus, your sector of Thinking/Communicating. As time goes on and more planets join Venus there, you’ll find your thoughts and ideas manifesting into reality at a fast pace, so watch where your attention goes! If you’ve been struggling with something, you should be able to get ahead of it now, finding good resources and information that are sound. Jupiter and the Moon in your sector of Home bring news in the form of snail mail or a phone call that may surprise you early in the week.
