Revisit the Past and Prepare for the Future in the Present

Well, it’s Virgo time and time for me to do the Virgo thing – seriously! – clean and organize my messes and piles. “Stuff” that this Libra Sun, Gemini Rising, Cancer Moon moonchild has so lovingly and craftily collected over a lifetime. Right!

1 Columns and stories I’ve written over the years, magazines with amazing authors and articles, beautiful photographs and pieces of artwork, leather for making vests and chaps, fabrics for clothing, quilts and pillows, crystals, family memorabilia, cards to and from my Mother, wedding presents I’ve never used, shoes and sports gear…things like that.

Some people are better than others at cleansing and purging, discerning and discarding, prioritizing and criticizing. Not me! I hang on to things from Grandma and Grandpa, Mom and Dad, nieces and nephews, brothers and sisters, friends and lovers, etc. Sound like an emotionally attached Cancer Moon?

Oh, well. I’m building a pile for a funeral pyre. Death to the past and birth to the present. Memories fade and life goes on. Be here now and simply be the best I can be, in the moment. Mercury’s retrograde in Libra – my Sun-sign – so it’s a good time to revisit the past, relive the memories, say good-bye to what was and prepare for the future. Se la vi! Wish me luck!

(Mar. 21-Apr.19)
You may start to feel the effects of Mercury retrograde as old partners and/or head. Be calm and sweet, forgive the past and live in the present. Motivation to improve your self and your immediate environment continues. Clean house, eat right and do your best. Health is wealth.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
Romantic and career opportunities abound as voluptuous Venus and magnanimous Jupiter oppose each other and square your Sun. The challenge is to stay grounded and be realistic in the heat of anger, passion or excitement. Maintain composure, examine motives and focus on friendship. Communication is key to success. Listen and learn.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)
With ruler Mercury now retrograde, take some time out to examine where you are and what you’re doing. Mars in Cancer delivers strong personal agendas and desires, be certain you aren’t caught up in ego struggles or self-delusion. Virgo energy encourages analysis and purification. Prune the bush, water the tree, but wait a while to transplant it.

(June 22-July 22)
The dark phase of the monthly lunar cycle directs Moonchildren inward. Reflect upon inner fires and understand the power of heart. Align with your personal truth and walk your talk. You may feel captured or captivated by unyielding external forces. Take your time and deal with it via patience and perseverance. Bring light to darkness and exit denial.

(July 23-Aug.22)
Venus and Vesta in Leo encourage candy and candlelight, sweet seduction and sensual pleasures. Enjoy life via Mother Nature’s beauty and bounty. Maintain personal equilibrium; cultivate equanimity in your relationships and balance work with play. Ongoing healing and expansion continues regarding important others. Support their efforts by taking care of you. 

(Aug. 23-Sep.22)
Rebellious Uranus retrograde in Pisces opposes serious Saturn in Virgo for the third and final time this week. There’s a lot to say, a lot to do and a lot to deal with as it does. Breathe deep, gather courage and maintain composure. You stand on the brink of major, transformational life change. It’s time to let go of what no longer serves you, once and for all. 

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct.22)
Break from stress and pamper yourself with rest and relaxation. Mercury retrograde in Libra says “take it easy!” With your birthday upon the horizon, the cosmos encourages all efforts at enhanced wellbeing and self-betterment. Socially, surround yourself with people you admire, respect and enjoy – otherwise, go it alone and pick up a good book!

(Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
If the last year has awakened something passionate and powerfully creative within you, take heart and gather courage. You are being called to follow a unique and different path, a path of destiny and soul-fueled desire. Breaking away from conventional restrictions is a requirement, but so is hard work, clarity and responsibility. Show up and stay clean.

(Nov. 23-Dec. 20)
A little stress may pop up in the shape of a family feud or professional hassle, but the key is in knowing how to draw the line and maintain healthy boundaries. With your personal sobriety and serenity at stake, how smart is it to always be thinking of others needs and feelings? Radically revamp homelife and restructure work. Yes, you must!

(Dec. 21-Jan. 19)
Major perceptual awakenings and brilliant brainstorms are par for the Capricorn course this week as structural Saturn opposes revolutionary Uranus in the mentally charged axis of your solar chart. Open your mind and explore the universe. Connect with the collective consciousness and read the handwriting on the wall. Whatever comes, accept the message.

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
The ongoing personal transformation and ultimate healing process continues and intensifies this week. You are radically changing a lifetime of self-destructive thinking, habits and behaviors, and – guess what? – it’s working! Pat yourself on the back and keep up the good work. Cultivate positive, optimistic attitudes and practice gratitude. Be here now!

(Feb. 19-Mar. 20)
The third and final Saturn/Uranus opposition takes place this week in Virgo/Pisces, and in so doing, the stars pave your path with gold. You have struggled and toiled, broken through and broken free. Now what? The shimmering road of life glitters before you. The world is your oyster. Embrace self-discipline and embark upon the journey. Good luck!
