Bad Triana, bad time management so very late column this week! Even though the week out in the wild has been entirely predictable to the point of being boring, there are new developments coming down the pike that are personally exciting for us, not the least of which is Venus moving into energetic Aries and bringing us much needed fire. The earth and water elements have left us waterlogged and sluggish and maybe even discouraged, but take heart now, because things are changing and moving into a more manageable phase due to Jupiter and Neptune working together.
Venus in Aries prompts us to take stock of ourselves in terms of our personal worth. This isn’t a financial thing, though finances are a part of it. How have we been treating ourselves? How have we been allowing others to treat us? How have we been taking care of ourselves, our lives, our livelihoods, hobbies, quality time, discipline? Venus in Aries is going to have the effect of helping us whip ourselves back into shape after a period of sluggishness caused by loads of distractions (stellium in Capricorn=attention to government(s)) and the ensuing feelings of helplessness some have had that may precipitate bad habits of comfort eating, sleeping too much, withdrawing, etc. Time to wake up and live again, says Venus! And with spice on it!
Jupiter in Capricorn is now in touch with Neptune in Pisces in a very nice way other than being indicative of the heavy rains and flooding that we’ve experienced (symbolic of an overload of emotional information flooding the brain and melting it). Now that Venus has moved, this weather pattern can change internally and externally and bring us relief and the opportunity to dry out the corners and get the mold out. We’ve been too preoccupied with things outside of our immediate control lately, many have been angry about stuff and acting all divisive but come on, enough already. Jupiter says, ‘Everybody get along!” And when Jupiter speaks, it’s best to listen because of his expansive nature. It is very true that divided we fall, and falling we are. It’s okay to not agree, but look, it’s a cultural thing, not a personal thing. It’s diversity at work. Let’s stop being stupid about it. Things are temporary and we live in interesting times that have now become mega historic even though they’re not as cool as Woodstock and the British Invasion of Rock & Roll. That was last century stuff. We’re now in the 100th anniversary of the Roaring 20’s, a time of amazing advancement and innovation, the birthplace of great thinkers, spiritualism, the first times of global influence, vacuum cleaners and telephones showing up, all that good stuff. Prohibition prompted people to buck the system and gather in speakeasies and flip off authority. Yes, there was the dark side of Al Capone and his gang of thugs and other such awful unsavory characters, but most people didn’t encounter him. He went down in history, though.
Just a friendly reminder that cycles occur, being caught in a rinse or spin cycle isn’t much fun, but if we extend a hand and be kind to each other it makes it much more bearable. Let’s be more mindful of what we’re transmitting into the airwaves rather than reacting to what we’re seeing in them. We’re not so far gone that we can’t get ourselves back again.
Keep looking after each other!

Aries (March 21- April 19): Crazy week but in a good way for you as you’re getting things done by shutting out what’s happening in the wild and focusing on things you can control. Good job! Have you done your taxes yet? Best get them done early because Uranus in your sector of Finances is soon to come under fire from Saturn, who is getting ready to form a square. This is a difficult alignment and rather long term due to Saturn not moving slowly. Saturn is currently in your sector of Career/Social Life and will be moving into your sector of Friends/Goals next month. This puts you on notice to listen to your guts when it comes to who you let into your life and to what degree. You don’t want to be taken by surprise, that really makes you mad! Venus is on your side, though, she enters your sign at the end of the week and not a moment too soon!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Uranus in your sign is within range of a square from Saturn who will enter your sector of Career next month. This is a difficult angle in general, but you bulls feel it more due to the effect of this square dissolving your concept of security in some ways. Saturn should be firing a warning shot across your bow about now, so take heed and take any action necessary and possible. Your Ruler Venus moves into your sector of Endings/New Beginnings at the end of the week, forming a lovely alignment with Saturn and taking the edge off the impending square and bolstering your resolve to beautify your space and prepare for the bursting of life in the spring.
Gemini (May 21- June 20): Discipline isn’t your strongest suit unless you’re intensely interested in something; best to exercise discipline now because Saturn is in range to form a square with Uranus. This alignment represents the irresistible force meeting the immovable object; in this case, Uranus will win out, pushing its agenda forward against all opposition, from your sector of Endings/New Beginnings. If you appear to lose, just wait a few minutes. Still, proceed carefully because your words and actions will affect you for a long time to come under this influence. Mars in your sector of Marriage/Partnerships sees you having adventures with another person, brought about through the spontaneity you love. It’s all about balance!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): The three remaining planets in Capricorn (Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto) are in a nice alignment to Neptune in his own sign of Pisces, your companion water sign. This heightens your intuitive powers and soothes your nerves, allowing you to pause and look deeper before reacting. Powerful Venus has moved into Aries, your sector of Career/Social Life. This activates your resolve to advance and/or make a change for the better. All in all a good week for you and a stellar weekend if you have plans for a gathering or attending an event with friends or family.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): This week has its ups and downs; the up side is that powerful Venus moves into your companion fire sign Aries (your sector of Expansion), igniting your desire to expand your horizons in some way; a trip to a distant shore, engaging in spiritual endeavors or continued education. The Capricorn planets are well aligned with Neptune in your sector of Shared Assets, indicating the sharing of a profound experience or the opening of an avenue of work through a career associate. This is a week of progress on a profound level even if it doesn’t feel like it, so don’t get discouraged!
Virgo (August 23 – September 21): The remaining three planets in Capricorn (Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto) are nicely aligned with Neptune in your opposite sign Pisces. This brings action to your sector of Marriage/Partnership and will last for a while. Maybe it’s time to take the big step to hitch up, renew vows, grab a refreshing getaway together or perhaps you’ve met someone new that shows enormous promise. Your relations in general are in a smooth stage where the flow is smooth and so are your nerves. Powerful Venus moves to energetic Aries now and activates your sector of Shared Assets. Since this is the only planet in a fire sign right now, you’ll see results in this area.
Libra (September 22 – October 23): Your Ruler Venus is now in your opposite sign Aries, your sector of Marriage/Partnership. Since she is the only planet in a fire sign right now you’ll feel her profoundly and likely step up efforts in your marriage and significant friendships to show up, cheer up and in general have a rousing good time! The other good news is that the Capricorn trio that has been leaning on your pretty heavily (Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto) are nicely aligned with laid-back Neptune in Pisces so your sectors of Home and Work will now settle down to a more comfortable pace, allowing you to uncover a greater purpose in the scheme of things. All in all this is a very auspicious period for you so use it well!
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22): The change for you this week comes from Venus moving into energetic Aries and igniting your sector of Work/Health. Your sense of self-worth rises to the surface and if something has been dogging you, now is the time you’re going to put a stop to it for good in your stealthy Scorpio manner. Also helping you is the Capricorn trio being well aligned with Neptune who is in your sector of Creative Expression. If you’re engaged in artistic endeavors, now is the time to up the ante and explore a deeper meaning to your craft as well as the symbology of the entire process. Your waters run deep and actively, with focus that is unparalleled. You’re the one that sees the patterns and predicts outcomes; but you play your cards close to your chest. If you don’t, everyone will be bugging you for answers and you’ll have to throw away all your communication devices to get any peace!
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 20): Well, look at you go! Great progress is yours this week due to Venus entering energetic Aries, your companion fire sign, in your sector of Creative Expression. This ignites your desire to improve yourself in just about every way in terms of how you present yourself and in any environment. What a breath of fresh air after such a heavy time of earth and water bogging down the consciousness with seriousness! Toward the end of the week you’ll want to cut loose and play, to hell with the consequences! In addition, the Capricorn planets in your sector of Finances (especially Saturn which has been bogging you down with unfun stuff) are now aligned with Neptune in your sector of Home in a harmonious way. This especially applies to your Ruler Jupiter who is now poised to help you expand your way of making money. If you’ve been experiencing a shortfall, this alignment will help you out of the doldrums.
Capricorn (December 21 – January 20): There is a burden to having multiple planets in your sign but now you have relief due to Jupiter in your sign in range to align harmoniously with Neptune in your sector of Thinking/Communication. This brings you to a place of wanting to communicate with others of like mind and light heart whom you may have lost touch with. Happy reunions are at hand if you take the initiative to make contact. Powerful Venus, ruler of self-worth, moves into energetic Aries now and this brings energy into your home. You may decide to make some changes to freshen up the place, have a visitor or two, host a dinner or game night and in general brighten things up. This is a good week to make changes, so go with it!
Aquarius (January 21 - February 20): This week has been a wowzer in many ways in terms of some things ending, others beginning, having to pay attention to financial stuff and some stuff that makes you crabby and impatient. The good news is, powerful Venus moving into energetic Aries gives you a lift by firing up your sector of Thinking/Communication and helps you focus on what action needs to be taken and in what sequence. Sometimes you get so overwhelmed by what’s coming in that you don’t know where to start and you vector splatter into paralysis. That’s coming to an end. Venus marches up to you, points a finger, and says, “Start here.” You’ll enter the weekend much happier than when you started this week.
Pisces (February 21 – March 20): So much flying around to be upset about, but you know what? In the Big Picture the weather is beautiful. Calm down and keep putting one foot in front of the other. Your Ruler Neptune in your sign is now receiving signals from expansive Jupiter in your sector of Friends/Goals, and though there has been a heavy emphasis of focus on government and world concerns, Jupiter beckons you to expand your personal horizons and shift your attention to your own time and space; focus on transmitting rather than receiving and you’ll be just fine. The really cool thing as well is that powerful Venus has now moved into Aries, your sector of Finances. Venus governs Self-worth and you have an opportunity to reassess your entire scope of what you value about yourself and make some adjustments. Go!
