ww crackThe other day a girlfriend told me she mentioned to someone that her life was cracking. The response she got was “That’s a good thing, because when your life cracks, it lets the light in.”

And that reminded me of something I had heard years ago from one of my older sister’s oldest, best boyfriends: “When your heart breaks, it breaks open.”

hellish guyBoth ideas sum up how I’ve been feeling lately. They constellate the dichotomy of experience and polarities of emotion during periods of challenge and conflict, pain and loss. Suffering is the mother of solution; we experience, learn and, ultimately, we grow. These days and times are rife with cracks, breaks, openings and streaming light. The recent solar and lunar eclipses have delivered their characteristic awakenings, illumination and enlightenment. Some lessons are easier to learn than others, some losses are easier to accept.

We are part and particle of an infinitely eternal cosmic dance, listening to celestial music and traveling amongst the spheres.

Blessings and peace, may your journey be one of illuminating light and open-hearted, universal, cosmic love.

Aries (Mar. 20-Apr.19) The exact square of Uranus in your sign to Pluto in Capricorn on Nov. 1st was no doubt intense, forcing you to fight or take flight. You may have felt abused or damaged emotionally by someone in a position of authority or respect. The function of all these battles is that of self-awakening. Listen to the messages and cultivate inner strength.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20) Relationship issues reign supreme in the steamy heat of the Scorpio sun-time. Other people, places and things revolve around you like planets around a central star. Remain centered and don’t let other’s drama, chaos or dysfunction pull you out of orbit. Acceptance is a powerful ally on the road to inner peace. Seek spiritual guidance whenever and wherever you can.

Gemini (May 21-June 21) Ruler Mercury ends its three-week retrograde phase in early Scorpio on Nov. 10th – hallelujah! You can take a deep breath and sigh with relief. The recent conflicts and emotional challenges you have experienced lately have taken their toll. Helping and taking care of others is a double-edged sword, and it can hurt. Times are tough; so take good care of you.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) On the tail of two eclipses and an exact Uranus/Pluto square in cardinal signs, you may be feeling rather over-worked, over-whelmed and over-wrought. Hammered and shaped by life experience and involvement, you are a continual work-in-progress. Sweet planet Venus in your solar 7th house of others attracts love and beauty to your home and heart. Indulge.

Leo (July 23-Aug.22) The intense, dynamic energies of the last several weeks has pushed buttons and pulled heartstrings, testing your strength, faith and will. The good news is that you are being uplifted, guided and protected by guardian angels and benefic spirits; taking you places you’ve never been and always wanted to go. Breathe deep, and say your prayers. Follow the light.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22) Mars in mid-Virgo reaches out to touch your heart and push you forward on the path of personal achievement. Cherished dreams and deep desires dance amongst the more realistic and attainable goals, fueling fires and turning up the heat. A practical, enlightened approach is best. In other words, don’t go into a dark room without a flashlight or a road trip without a map.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22) The most telling of seven exact Uranus/Pluto squares in Aries/Capricorn last week was especially excitable and stressful for cardinal signs, pushing the limits on patience and tolerance. If you blew up, hurt others or expressed yourself in ways you regret, make amends and use the experience to awaken and grow. No one is perfect. Forgive yourself and go forth.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) While others find you sexy, charismatic and seductive, you may remain cool to your own charms and attractions. Breathe deep, exhale and relax. Accept yourself as a beautiful child of the universe, a miracle of life and death. Venus now in Capricorn favors communication with those you love. Open your heart to kind words and romantic expressions. Be sweet.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20) You may find yourself at work in some highly creative enterprise or expression of art as Venus, the planet of love and beauty, enters your solar 2nd house of personal talents and resources. Utilize innate, natural abilities as often as possible. Relax in your confidence and embrace the freedom of responsibility. Keep on track and stay the course.

Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19) You may be at the center of several conflicts and agendas, attempting to settle disagreements or enforce laws, follow rules or enact legislation. Whatever the manifestation, recognize the futility of force. Enlightenment is the name of the game. Others must come to awakening at their own pace and time. Lead by example. It’s all about attraction rather than promotion.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) There is no doubt that you are the leader of the pack, the man at the helm, the one willing to take charge. The good news is that you are ready and willing to do what it takes to get the job done. Others see you as competent and in control, and you are. Just don’t forget that you are also imperfect. Listen and laugh, cultivate compassion, organize and execute.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20) As the first week of the Scorpio lunar month unfolds, tap into higher self living and being. The material earth plane, with all its greed and grasping, can be so disgusting, dysfunctional and disheartening. Once again, it’s time to follow the sacred path of the warrior, move toward the sharp points and open your heart. Be the change you want the world to be.
