  • Emotional Cleansing as Pluto Retrogrades in Capricorn

    Emotional Cleansing as Pluto Retrogrades in Capricorn
    Pluto, the planet of deep emotional cleansing, is now imparting another round of retrograde teachings in the sign of Capricorn. Between now and September, you'll be called to further delve into your own shadow issues surrounding power, authority, and control, assessing how these elements may still lurk in your psyche in potentially destructive ways.

    These dark themes began scratching their way to the surface once Pluto first entered Capricorn in 2008. Pluto works like the classic psychoanalytic metaphor of peeling an onion, revealing layers circuitously until the deepest core of an issue is reached. It takes time and repetitive emotional experience to excavate an issue in your psyche, so sometimes it's easy to forget that major change is no overnight fix.

    The Sun Enters Taurus: Calmer Days
    After an insanely fiery month of Aries' domination, you're bound to welcome the Sun's placid entrance into the sign of Taurus, which occurred this past Saturday. Get ready to experience relief at finally watching some of Aries' embers die down so you can once again get back to a slower pace and land your feet back on the ground.

    The Sun's transit through Taurus is an excellent time to get back into your body, focus on simplicity and contentment, and take time to savor the beauty of life. There's no need to rush or hurry, because if you do, you'll pass up the experience of living fully through all five senses. Spring flowers are blooming and life is wonderfully rich right now, so it's up to you to get out of your own way long enough to simply chill out and appreciate the gorgeousness of it all.

    Venus in Pisces: Get Creative!
    Without a doubt, April looks to be one of the most dramatic months of 2014. Thankfully, Venus' time spent in Pisces (through May 3) offers blessings and protection along the way. And since Pisces is a Water sign, you can expect to get carried away by moments of creativity -- so, allow yourself to ride that wave!

    Venus in Pisces inspires a fluid, driven energy that highlights the beauty of experience rather than the push to achieve. This cycle is all about playfulness and enjoying the good things in life. Indulging in luxury doesn't matter as much as spending quality time with those you adore.

  • Your Sun Sign's Spring Fever Forecast!

    Your Sun Sign's Spring Fever Forecast!
    Spring is in the air (or will be very soon), and with this change of season comes a change of temperature -- internally, externally, and emotionally. Perhaps there's no known remedy for spring fever, but here's what you and your Sun sign can expect in the coming weeks!

    Aries
    Spring strength: You're all action; thinking is optional.
    Spring weakness: See 'Spring strength.'
    Advice: Don't mix a passionate mood with access to electronic media. After all, you can't retrieve an e-mail or text once you hit "send." And even if you can remove a social media post, you can't remove its memory in the minds of those who already read it!

    Taurus
    Spring strength: A nose for opportunity. You'll have the ability to sense good deals and act quickly on them.
    Spring weakness: There's a lot you want to buy ... and most of it, you don't need.
    Advice: Shopping isn't always buying. Start using wishlists. It will give you the thrill of acquisition without the risk of buyer's remorse. When the season

  • The Sun in Aries: Prioritize Yourself!

    The Sun in Aries: Prioritize Yourself!
    Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion, has been in the sign of home and family, Cancer, since last June. Perhaps you've been feeling an intense hunger for coziness throughout this time, and maybe you've even been partaking in a fair amount of nurturing (or being nurtured). There is indeed something lovely and comforting about knowing your loved ones have got your back -- and that someone is baking you cookies!

    However, during the last week of March, the Sun moved into independent Aries, the sign whose tagline may as well be "me first." This serves as a reminder that it's absolutely necessary to express your true self now, even if the people around you don't always understand how you feel and what you mean.

    Feng Shui tradition tells that if you wish to experience all the aforementioned benefits, you should begin by boiling one dozen eggs. Once the boiling process is complete, allow the water to cool, remove the eggs, then pour the water into a freshly drawn hot bath.

    Use Astrology to Drive Your Life Forward!
    Do you amble along in life hoping your luck will change? Waiting for a magic moment to improve a situation can be dispiriting. Instead, try to see your life as a vehicle: Let your Sun sign help you get behind the steering wheel and make your life go where you want!

    Aries has no problem kick-starting themselves ... but they're not always the best at following through. As a result, their life can become a series of half-finished projects. If they can see things through to the end, their morale will soar as a result -- and suddenly other areas in their lives will kick into gear as well.

    Taurus has a habit of burrowing down rather than striding forward, so they can find themselves in paralysis mode more easily than most. They tend to hold onto what they know, even if it isn't what they want. But once they realize they're more powerful than they think and rev up their inner motor, they're off and running!

    Gemini can become so scattered, they end up running around in circles all the

  • Lunar Cycles and a Healthier You

    Lunar Cycles and a Healthier You
    It's a fast-paced world we live in, and we often sacrifice our health for more ambitious agendas. However, when we lose the ability to take care of ourselves, we become less effective overall. So, let lunar cycles guide you in living a healthier life -- after all, that beautiful orb in the night sky is also known as the Great Nurturer!

    New Moon: Break habits.
    Based on the cycle of the Moon, it's been said it takes 21 days to break a bad habit. If you can make it to the last quarter of the lunar cycle, this is an ideal time to turn new corners in attitude and consciousness.

    Waxing Moon: Focus on good nutrition and rest.
    During the waxing Moon (new to full), the body rebuilds. The cost for not taking care of ourselves during this phase is high, as we make ourselves especially vulnerable to illness. Rest more, and if possible, put off major chores until the waning Moon phase when -- you'll be delighted to hear -- your home will remain cleaner longer!
