In our book Sextrology, the Leo Man chapter is titled The Natural. So many tawny men of the sign are wont to go native, being astrologically designed, like their totem Lion, to easefully roam the great expanses of the planet. They are attracted to cultures and peoples with a primal throb. The lion is born free and stays that way. Like its ruler, the central Sun, the heart-center of the body is governed by the sign of Leo. The beating of the heart is the rhythm of life; and besides boasting many drummers among its number, the sign of Leo breeds men who live life at its own pace or, at least, they believe that they do. For, the zodiac’s king might naturally confuse his own will with that of the divine. He assumes he’s Right. The shadow side of the king, of course, is the tyrant; and anyone acquainted with a Leo man has probably seen it creep in. The golden Leo nature boy abhors artifice and is near maniacal in his embracing of authenticity. He is, by nature, skeptical of phonies or over-sophisticates. Whether he possesses the rugged outdoorsiness of Davy Crockett, the pastoral, bare aesthetic of Thomas Eakins, the natural sweepingness of filmmaker John Huston, the arid no-nonsense of Sundance king Robert Redford, the hempish ways of Woody Harrelson, the prairie rattiness of Garrison Keillor, the vegan crunch of Casey Affleck or the going-nativeness of William Clark, Herman Melville, Cartier-Bresson, Lawrence of Arabia or even Ginger Baker, for that matter, Leo men celebrate the beating of creation’s heart and extol our earthly kingdom and mankind in its most noble natural, state. Some other Leo hunks include the “Conans” Jason Momoa and Arnold Schwarzenegger, “Thor” Chris Hemsworth, “Hulk” Eric Bana, and “Avatar” Sam Worthington.

Aries

With Mars entering Scorpio, your mental powers peak to near psychic proportion, and nobody escapes being slid under your microscope. You also micromanage, now, to root out dysfunction both at work and at home; although, for you dysfunction means anything done in a way in which you wouldn’t do it. Find the fine line between being helpful and being hunty. In love, errant mates don’t make the cut—even steady buckfuddies are ripe for the heap. And heads up: The Sun passing Jupiter, Thursday, amps all aspects of creative fertility.

Taurus

Mercury and Venus conjunct opens new dialogues and launches fresh initiatives, while it eases articulation, especially, of radical ideas. It is clarity time for artist Bulls for whom veils of self-doubt and delusion lift. Remain cautiously optimistic and employ patience to sandbag floods of discouragement. Leading to the New Moon, Saturday, enthusiasm mounts with an itch for celebration. But don’t waste fuel on trips to party city. Keep it in the bank to fund an imminent breakthrough. Love finds you wanting, every which way.

Gemini

Financial concerns now come to the fore. Saturn, direct, trine Mercury shows that recently achieved monetary milestones may’ve left you cold. Extract the lesson from this: It’s time to affirm what truly constitutes value in your life. Experience? And to opt for liberty over basic liquidity as your new definition of luxury. Plan now to venture forth more in future, booking tangible travel tickets, blazing frontiers of learning, or, just a thought, combining mental and geographical expansion. Only you can hold you back.

Cancer

You can’t hide your altruistic ways. With Saturn direct, opposing the Moon, at this week’s outset, others come to learn of the good deeds you’re doing on the down low. Granted, keeping your white witch ways under wraps has magnified their power. So maintain any covert charity but know this: Channels are being opened to you, both in the material world, where others rally around and champion your causes, and in those of a spiritual nature. If ever you were to believe in being guided by unseen forces, now is the time.

Leo

With Uranus retrograde from Tuesday, you don’t want a revolution—you seek revelation. You realize you cannot take half measures in the hatching of most innovative ideas and projects that promote radical change. Not that you need to stage some kind of coup. No heads must roll. But the guard does need changing. Financial instincts are super keen. And Venus trine Mars signals a shift in tone and responsibility in relationships. You’re tempted to impose restrictions as romantic feelings deepen. Keep letting that stuff go.

Virgo

You see the need to make specific choices, distinguishing a more distinct direction than one taken in the recent past. Saturn now direct says to stop trying to create tipping points. Your success is the steady culmination of past actions. Uh-oh? In truth, you needn’t be so dutiful and reverential to those you think have all the power. The validation and authority you seek are within. Mercury and Venus opposed Pluto points to the need for a love affair with self. Keep focus on you. As a Virgo friend once said: Comparison is violence.

Libra

Saturn direct releases a storehouse of energy you’ve stockpiled. To reap full benefit, accept increasing fortune with utter humility. Now is time to define your USP—unique selling point—which is key to long-term success. There is no boon in being multifaceted; it breeds half-baked products, ideas and services. Focus on the one thing. And work it for all its worth. As you narrow your niche, you simplify the equation, adding up to more time and money. Mars leaving Libra, Saturday, is the cosmic equivalent of laying down arms.

Scorpio

Unhitch your wagon from anyone else’s star and tell any cling-ons to yours where to get off. Pluto opposing Mercury and Venus pinpoints how your being part of a collective, corporation, or cult social scene now keeps you down. You not only have the verve to extricate yourself from hives that provide no honey, you realize you are your own best asset. Pursue a singular dream even in the midst of team working. Healing is happening. Forgo activities and events that provide fleeting pleasure and only postpone lasting Joy.

Sagittarius

Life seems like a string of if-then contingencies until the Sun transits Jupiter, Thursday. In the process, you learn that being too rigid isn’t productive. Yes, you can have great expectations, but let the universe unfold of its own accord, not to your specifications and and schedule. With Uranus retrograde, you can feel at the whim of random caveats; then bam, synchronic run-ins and so-called coincidences reaffirm your faith in divine order. Quit focusing on what isn’t happening and nurture what is. Let people be who they are.

Capricorn

With Pluto opposing Venus, you’ll feel more empowered putting group aims ahead of your own. Ironically, you garner increasing praise for solo pursuits in the process. Saturn now direct may make it look easy to pull off massive projects—we know the struggle—while camaraderie with others is good on all counts. People are less likely to label you or put you in a box. That’s convenient because you’re now being urged to articulate your personal belief system. It entails forgiveness of others and the eradication of any and all excuses.

Aquarius

You shine more brightly in a firmament of like stars with whom you’re now surrounded. Be inspired by the gifted types in your midst—don’t avoid the obvious by trying not to emulate them. With Uranus retrograde you’re in no danger of being imitative. You know what it is you do best. Others heed your unique voice. In business or artistic work, as ever the twain shall meet, don’t edit yourself, rather, take your space and time to fully express what most needs it. You can make yourself scarce, socially, without utterly isolating.

Pisces

This week brings a sense of spiritual homecoming. Really and metaphorically, Pisces have been fanned out these past few months; but Saturn direct now points to true north. So accept the callings you hear, whether or not you heed them is another story. As the Sun transits Jupiter this week, it removes, from view at least, many vestiges of the past, inspiring fresh avenues of thought. You ditch worn out rituals along with the same ol’ crowd playing the same ol’ games. You crave new toys and tricks, all entendres intended.

ABsolutely FABulous Cancerian Jennifer Saunders

ABsolutely FABulous Cancerian Jennifer Saunders

Cancer woman’s life journey can be characterized as one long move away from the seeming chaos of her youth toward the fulfillment of finding her own natural rhythm. Long before Linda Ronstadt marched to the beat of a different drum, Cancer girls have felt emotionally abandoned at a callow age and/or expressed their own self-abandon. It takes time’s ticking tides to emotionally process Cancer woman’s way to a calmer shore, flood myths being endemic to the cosmic energy of the sign. Instinct defines the Cancerian realm, and the lady Moonchild, in particular, develops a gut variety by way of fully embracing any rocky circumstance of her youth; the inevitable embarkation therefrom; any subsequent feelings of being “at sea” along with strong senses of hope and promise; before she can ultimately experience deliverance. Cancer and the Moon rule the 4th astrological house of both the home one comes from and the home one creates for oneself. It is the house of re-creation, which is why one should never give up hope that a Cancer woman will land herself a happy, healthy and emotionally transcendent existence. In the meantime, it can be quite a shite show. ‘Tis the season, so here come the hurricanes: Jennifer Saunders (Edina Monsoon!), Lindsay Lohan, Carly Simon, Pamela Anderson, Ludivine Sagnier, Courtney Love, Busy Phillips, Sue Lyon, Cyndi Lauper, Penny Arcade, Julianne Hough, Sofia Vergara, Phoebe Legere, Gisele Bündchen, Karen Black, Jerry Hall, Jessica Simpson, Kelly McGillis, Monica Lewinsky, Princess Diana, Imelda Marcos, Leona Helmsley, Lizzy Borden and Helen Keller are all Cancerians who might, have, at one point or other, been a little upset and needed to lie down.

 Aries

Closure is king with Mars squaring the Sun and Jupiter. A sense of completion makes you near giddy, and the more you do, the more you can do. Get any busy work out of the way, clearing the decks for heavier lifting. Reconnect with heroes, pinpointing traits you seek to emulate and embody. Now is about heeding true callings. Moisturize your elbows for some major rubbing, but resist the urge to grease anybody else’s. The humblest of gestures can be misconstrued now to have ulterior motives. It’s okay to want to be alone.

 Taurus

Post the Full Moon, opposing Sun and Jupiter, outsized encouragement fuels career advancement—or is it the other way around? In either case you can gain fuller mastery in your profession, that is so long as you acknowledge the progress you’ve made so far. Fear that good things won’t last is self-prophesying illusion. The stars show that, on the work front, there are two options: 1) what you like doing now or 2) something better. So chill and channel worrier energy into warrior action. Forward march on all creative campaigns.

 Gemini

Facing some so-called demons, you more clearly articulate your particular brand of whacked-out genius as an artist, intellectual, sociologist, activist…or fill in the blank. Mercury opposed Pluto says that personal paydays and spreading the wealth aren’t mutually exclusive. While you plan long-term planet moves, sudden travel is also in the stars. Balancing a busy biz life with a bucolic existence will characterize your near-future existence. You learn more about life and joy from nature than from any self-help manual.

 Cancer

In the wake of the Full Moon, professional reputation is paramount. Fostering a fine one depends on your ability to specialize, with laser focus, in order to distinguish yourself from the pack. You will change the career headline by accepting more responsibility on the work front. Venus in Cancer by Friday provides ease in competitions. It also signals good fortune for an intimate you’ve aided in an emotional struggle. Being there for loved ones has amped your overall beneficence, which now attracts some great karmic rewards.

 Leo

There is a fine line between curiosity and suspicion, sacrifice and victimization, stillness and inertia, as you soon realize. With Jupiter entering Leo, the gauze drops from the lens through which others see you. So-called faults are made obvious so that you may work to refine or even appreciate them or both. Accept criticism given you by colleagues and cronies. Avoid getting defensive. Solicit advice. Then take it. Dormant family issues may spring up. Be aggressively neutral. For you, any battles are rightly relegated to the past.

 Virgo

Expect the unexpected with Mercury opposing Uranus, which brings offers, breaks and prospects from out of the blue. That said you must meet opportunities half way, plopping into situations that truly suit you, making direct contact with helping hands you could slip a grip. And this should go without saying but: Speak only the truth. Now isn’t time to pose or fabricate; and you gain no points by feigning nonchalance. With Venus entering Cancer, a stifling of unrequited feelings results in an explosion of them. Express yourself!

 Libra

In the wake of the Full Moon you shake up the status quo, honoring your inner need for change. Mind that restlessness doesn’t turn to recklessness lest you alienate those whose favor you value. Mars in Libra can cause head-butting with clients or colleagues, fueled by friction at home. But as it trines Venues, take stock of, and perhaps apologize to, those you may’ve scapegoated. This can be a time of new beginnings and sure successes if you remove what energetic blocks you can. Make sure amends are heartfelt not perfunctory.

Scorpio

First impressions are everything. And Pluto opposed Mercury provides X-ray vision into other’s hearts and minds. The upshot is, you’re equally transparent. This will jolt those used to your being a closed book (especially you). Some may count you “on their side” unquestioningly. Voicing contrary opinions can jar but others but provide impetus for change. Mercury trine Neptune says a long lost someone may make a big reentry. This person is a mirror; and you’re ready to confront aspects of Self s/he embodies, sans fear.

Sagittarius

Venus trine Mars exposes inherent biases formed in childhood conditioning. People you knee-jerk label gauche may very well emerge to be most valued acquaintances. With Jupiter entering Leo, a project for which you had passion, poured blood, sweat and tears into, then shelved for fear of failure, can be dusted off. You show true grit in overriding doubts and naysayers you once let derail you. But, on the other side of the same coin, can you resist sycophants kissing up to you or are you an egoist all-day sucker for them?

 Capricorn

Coming off the Capricorn Full Moon, focus is on clearly analyzing deals and offers. Remember that nothing’s personal and let discernment be your sole business directive. Empty promises of the past have left you skeptical, but you’ve no fear of falling for something slim or shady. Au contraire: It’s being too jaded and thus not recognizing a good thing when it presents itself now that concerns us. With Mars squaring Jupiter, a dead end is a breakthrough yet to happen. Leave no stone unturned in letting yourself be heard.

 Aquarius

Though you’ve a reputation for being generally open and accepting, you can find one-on-one associations most challenging. With Venus trine Mars, individuals demand intimacy just as you field more flirty stares on the street. Putting effort into your relationships is tantamount to increased emotional intelligence. In career, you’re subtly fierce, asserting a new creative agenda without compromise, finding the process of internal discovery most rewarding. And that gnawing sensation you feel is gut instinct fairly aching to be trusted.

 Pisces

There is a symbiotic relationship now between self discipline and spiritual awakening; Even an exercise routine is more about gaining peace of mind than muscle tone. Your vistas expand with Jupiter conjunct the Sun. Actual travel is likely, while, you surely voyage inwardly. Your financial profile is rosier. And a paradoxical concoction of wider renown and more privacy is in the stars. Striking a better balance between private and professional life is the residue of a mindful design to bring all aspects of life into concert.

Soccer legend Zinedine Zidane

Soccer legend Zinedine Zidane

Whether or not you actually believe we went to the Moon, the fact remains that Cancer men often do end up looking a lot like the Man therein. You decide whether or not he might also be described as cheesy. Behold the bald and the beautiful Cancerian males who glow with kindly condescension, a subtle superiority and a distant devotion. And beware the chrome-dome glare: Jeffrey Tambor, Patrick Stewart, John Glenn, Yul Brynner, Terence Stamp, Dan Aykroyd, Larry David, Jesse Ventura, Montel Williams, Anthony Edwards, Donald Faison, Michael Jace, Vin Diesel, Gerald Ford, Kurtwood Smith, Forest Whitaker, Mel Brooks, Danny Glover, Mike Tyson, Zinedine Zidane, The Dalai Lama, Anthony Edwards, Jackie Earle Haley, Prince William and all the future folically challenged Cancerian fellows.

Aries

Tie up loose ends, pay outstanding debts and deliver on promises. Leading to the Full Moon on Saturday the path is paved to create new avenues of abundance. Meanwhile, you can feel like something of a loose cannon. For sure, flying in the face of convention is condoned; but it must serve people and/or progress, not just buck the systems that bum you out. You’re a bit itchy in love, but think through lusty impulses. Make sure acting on them supports your quest for sustainable joy. Casual paramours can be gum on the shoe.

Taurus

Recent struggles reveal themselves to be inspiration for personal expression. Mercury then Venus trine Mars this week, helping you process ill feelings to be released, leaving you open to court fresh influences, ideologies and individuals. Creative juices ultimately flow. So let that be impetus to begin chucking ideas onto paper or other platforms where you can work out kinks, without focusing on perfection. With Saturday’s Full Moon, you wrap your brain around career changes for which your intuitive gut is already geared up.

Gemini

Intrigue abounds with Jupiter unaspected until Saturday, also the day of the Full Moon. Mystery, mystique, even mysticism is in the air. You sense a convergence of unseen energies and situations. Acceptance is key to floating on the surface of any waves others are making. You must check your ego in any brainstorming sessions, letting ideas happen through you. This endows works of creation with a life force all their own. You have the power to raise the vibration of relationships, too, provided you remain lovingly detached.

Cancer

En route to the Full Moon on Saturday, you’re taken to school. Some of you may literally ship off to some institute of learning, most embark on a new personal course of study. Mercury trine Mars rewires your mechanisms for processing information, removing obstacles to absorbing sound wisdom from the pervasive din. You quit acting like you have all the answers and actually get some. Be conscious of how moves you make to further cred or status impact others. Loved ones need freedom to be their singular selves.

Leo

The Sun, trine Neptune, square Mars and Uranus, and opposed Pluto and the Full Moon, Saturday, all add up to a burst of ego and exhilaration. Cravings for fleeting pleasures abound. You know indulging some can leave you feeling emptier. A mini crash and burn may be a) unavoidable, and b) what’s needed to elevate you to even greater heights from a springboard made of ashes. Sacrifices give rise to payoffs that help you achieve desired, increased autonomy. Frontload activities providing lasting joy not passing fancy. Big diff.

Virgo

Call in chits and favors, and get deals in writing. Jupiter untethered until it squares Mars, with the Full Moon, on Saturday, will make it seem like luck is running out, when, in fact, you are urged to participate in its design. A jolly diligence in meeting challenges without complaint quickens their surpassing. Meanwhile don’t ignore or repress any sadness—honor emotional pain lest it drag you into depression or delusion. There’s a thin line between fabulous and nebulous. You needn’t become vain and vague, for your pains.

Libra

Remove any sting and embrace a breezy formality in dealings, as Mercury and Venus trine Mars. Commit without compulsion, serving realness sans becoming indentured. Laugh off faults and mistakes that often trigger self-loathing. Feel your underlying confidence—it’s in there. Note where private affairs seep into professional relationships, keeping a hearty polarity in place. Using people as place holders until better associations come along? You’re doing said divine souls no favors. Free, free, set them free. E-oh-yo.

Scorpio

You march to your own drum, as the Moon conjuncts Pluto en route to Full-ness, Saturday. Others Sousa while you salsa. But being out of step is finding your own rhythm. Indulge flights of fancy and let some freak flags fly; it’s been awhile, no? You’ve got the requisite guts to withstand scapegoating so don’t stress it. In any psychic battle you shall be victorious. Anyway, you needn’t defend yourself against, nor dignify, the slings of dementors. Think of integrity, literally. Now is about keeping your shizz super tight.

Sagittarius

A hectic schedule draws attention outward as inner struggles can no longer be ignored. Jupiter runs wild until it squares Mars with the Full Moon, Saturday. Meanwhile, deep-seated issues and desires surface with a bang. Be ultra temperate in your habits—don’t add fuel to your fiery psyche. Voice true callings, if only to your mirror, hard as even that may be. This relieves trapped emotion, which may be manifesting as physical pain. See angst as a churning storehouse of adrenalin to channel into action. Trying is succeeding.

Capricorn

A creature of reserve, you now expose yourself to new thought and situations with wide-eyed enthusiasm. It’s down to a rogue Jupiter, with the Sun, Saturn and healer, Chiron, forming a stable Grand trine. You’re being snapped out of self-imposed ruts. So take risks, coloring outside the lines, asking for forgiveness rather than permission. You can plug up leaky holes in long-range plans, assuring their success. Leading to the Full Capricorn Moon, Saturday, you get vivid reminders of your potent, eternal desirability.

Aquarius

The only way out is through. Planet moves help pinpoint sources of dread and fear, so you can draft baby steps to facing them. It’s the glossing over them that frays your nerves. Take a sweeping mental inventory; quell if-then thinking with meditative resolve; and forgo artificial means of stilling your mind. If your great fear is regret, then leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of dreams. Set an intention with the Full Moon, Saturday: to give a life-long goal your all. Doing so, you’ll never second-guess any ultimate outcome.

Pisces

Time to lay your cards on the table. With the Sun trine Neptune, leading to the Full Moon Saturday, disclosure of desired plans will attract champions to such efforts. A window is opened, now, through which others may enter into your wildest schemes. Your sense of empathy is also amped, fostering affection from those who thought you too imperious or impervious to approach. You now wax playful, allowing others access to the elusive true you. This Self of which we speak doesn’t front or posture, need minions or die-hard fans.

Pout and About: Kristen Bell

It can be near comical to peruse a photo collage of Cancer women, as, more often than not, their expression suggests they might be on the verge of tears. Cancer females embody the cardinal-water assignation of their sign. They are fountains of feeling ruled by Mother Moon which, we know, controls the tides. These daughters of Selene are one with their emotions, which can make them wildly chaotic—we’ll get to a list of extreme cases in the coming weeks—or oh, so touchingly histrionic. Little wonder they make the most emotionally accessible actresses. We cite the character of Cinderella as the Cancer girl archetype. Like Cindy, Cancer women are equal parts lamenting and hopeful, mirroring the expressions of the waxing and waning Moon. Indeed, they employ the power of wish-craft, floating their hopes toward the deliverance of desired results. The Cinderella myth is filled with nocturnal imagery—moon-powered elements—from pumpkins, which grow by night, and mice, which activate by night. The woeful beauty of the Cancer woman can be captivating, inviting salvation, if not some savior prince/ss to trot up on a white charger or in a convertible Mini. A list of pouty Cancer princesses includes Liv Tyler, Eva Green, Juno Temple, Shelley Duvall, Deborah Harry, Frances McDormand, Linda Cardellini, Kristen Bell, Diane Kruger, Clair Forlani, Phoebe Cates, Isabelle Adjani, Meryl Streep, Princess Diana, Sandra Oh, Judy Greer, Melissa Rauch, Edie Falco, Stephanie Seymour, Linda Ronstadt, Ginger Rogers, Eva Marie Saint, Diana Rigg, Janet Leigh, Olivia De Havilland.

Aries

Change is the only constant with protean Mercury (direct Tuesday!) trine Mars. Major rejigs need making to a creative plan. Double back to reclaim an original, innovative vision, steering clear of the status quo that since crept in. For this, you may be hailed as a savior of sorts. Rolling up your sleeves to lead a rag-tag team isn’t just great for morale; it positions you to diagnose and root out dysfunction where it festers. Step up to the plate, accept any top community role on offer. The key to true leadership is total delegation.

Taurus

You could be laughing through tears, as Venus squaring Neptune points to fond farewells and fresh starts. You are eager to embrace new plans and paradigms, not to mention refresh your mojo and personal effects. You’re graduating from a life of preparation to one of actualization and, yes, certain mastery, accepting the fact you are accomplished in a number of arenas. In full command of life-lessons learned, you possess your own brand of witty wisdom to impart to others. To wit, bittersweet introspection looks good on you.

Gemini

With Mercury direct on Tuesday, time seems to expand in the face of looming deadlines. Don’t question the ease of meeting them and don’t waste the grace, either. Gently keep nose to the grindstone. Mercury trine Mars helps channel happy thoughts and big ideas effectively into being. Perspiration is a key ingredient. Don’t take short cuts. Avoid escape fantasies, especially those involving sordid social scenes. Treating your body as a temple has obvious physical benefits. The knowledge you’re doing so will salve your soul.

Cancer

Take stock of your overreactions in recent situations. A blend of sadness and regret may surface—don’t wallow in it—en route to your taking a more conscious, compassionate approach to interpersonal bonds. The Sun square Mars, by Thursday, provides much-needed distance between your feelings and actions. By shedding false superiority in your demeanor—thinly veiled insecurity—you find the joy in humility and in paying homage to others. There’s a big difference between expressing appreciation and smooching tushy.

Leo

With Mercury direct on Tuesday, stick to your guns in negotiating deals or partnerships. You rock the art of compromise; but your zeal for resolution can see you conceding too much. Don’t be quick to label fresh faces on the scene as rivals—they may be future allies. Bring your pursuit of dreams into balance with the daily grind. Do a little each day toward them—it adds up! Creative callings must be priority one to hasten lucrativity. Be all biz about it. Werk a sexy efficiency-expert m.o.. Schedule fun time into your calendar.

Virgo

You’re a whirling dervish with Mercury direct by Tuesday, hitting your marks and meeting obligations as if life is one big, well-choreographed dance. You may stretch into uncharted territory, career-wise, where you should embrace progressive ideas and methodology. Optimism, in all its forms, is fueled by making amends and securing loose ends. Keep a positive outlook. Be abundance-conscious. And do not sell yourself short. Exceed expectations and face facts: You’ve outgrown some people, places and things.

Libra

Family relations are too close for comfort as Venus squares Neptune. Cue claustrophobia. You crave detachment from clinging intimates, finding increased comfort in acquaintances. Where closing ranks once served a purpose it now makes your world dangerously small. As a fear of strangers dissolves into a healthy terror of friends and family, you loosen ties that bind. Wherever this incites a riot, so-called unconditional support has invisible strings. Mercury direct Tuesday frees your mind (and the rest will follow).

Scorpio

You’re stripped of false prophets, crutches disguised as crushes, co-dependents, hollow heroes and real or metaphoric painkillers. All courtesy of Sun square co-ruler Mars. The trick is to soberly tackle big issues on your own, building emotional brawn in the process. You’ll need it for a new leg of your evolution that entails vivid personal transformation. This can be hard on relationships with which you fear to tamper. What’s revealed is that: Some so-called loved ones are gaga for what you represent rather than who you truly are.

Sagittarius

Jupiter unaspected says to quit forcing plans or projects into works. Others may view this as giving up. But it’s actually an expression of true authenticity. You can no longer abide situations you’re not feeling. There is also a call to financial action, with Mercury direct. Making bank is it’s own reward. So focus on getting ducks in a row, paying down debts and cutting losses. You find life becomes less fraught, in just planning to put first things first. If you’ve no time to stroll or read a book, you’re doing the proverbial It all wrong.

Capricorn

With the Sun opposing Pluto in Capricorn, you’re urged to expel and/or express vestiges, memories, repressions of the past. But beware the rollercoaster—emotional highs and lows are to be equally avoided. Just observe and take stock of your inner complexities. All the answers and solace are within. Seismic shifts in your psyche are occurring for the better. Just remember to breathe and visualize the invisa-line between your desires and your destiny. Success is pursuing you as you seek it. Remove doubts that are blocking its view.

Aquarius

Now is about extracting nuggets of wisdom from every situation, even those you’d typically label unsavory. Jupiter unaspected expands your thinking via some exaggerated experiences. So when the outrageous or the absurd occurs, embrace it so to glean life lessons. In career, your scope is increasingly global. You must put busy work aside and concentrate, solely, on your eponymous brand’s creative content. Yes, you are a brand. And its happy proliferation requires your exiting any bubbles within you’ve been hiding.

Pisces

We oft remind people that: nothing is personal; something Pisces naturally understand. If anything, you must now heed the fact that the opposite is also true. With Venus squaring Neptune, the blanket ways you flatter (or ingratiate yourself to) others is easily read as indiscriminant and insincere. So soul-search what it is you’re truly seeking from people. Validation? Acceptance? Reflected glory? Be brutally honest with yourself. It’s the surest way to rise from the ashes of sycophancy into the crisp clean air of self-love and -worth.

Week of June 22-28 2014

ca2The sign of Cancer is ruled by Mother Moon and it governs the fourth astrological house of, among other things, the female population. Cancer purports a world view, that of existence, as female, a mother source needing our protection. It is distinguished as the cardinal (initiative) water sign of the zodiac—think of a literal bubbling spring or source of a river. Cancer women, by their nature, embody this energy, being fountains of feeling. Cancer men, meanwhile, tend to work on the emotions of others, especially women, to whom the male Moonchild appeals on the level of being the kind of guy a girl or fellow can take home to mother: A clean, well-scrubbed, if not eternally collegiate candidate for a reproductive and/or romantic partnership. Cancer Man doesn’t fancy himself the king that Leo does; he prefers to play a comfier, seemingly sidelong role akin to that of prince consort to some loving force-of-nature on whose emotional support he is kept aloft, swept-along, navigating his way toward a life of shared success. Cancerian Earnest Hemingway’s Jake Barnes is drawn in by the stronger female force of Brett Ashley. It’s the same in same-sex relationships. Cancer man demurs in day-to-day decision making, only sweating the big stuff, letting a more domineering, but no less type-A, loved one feel s/he’s running the whole show, but it’s not always so. Faster than Kevin Bacon can drop his wife’s name into a sentence, Cancer guy will sidle in sideways, just like a crab, and assert his agenda, taking hold of situations with a vice-like tenacity you never saw coming. For your consideration: A list of uncalloused Cancer men who have mutually benefitted from having their oft sappy chick-flick selves appeal to a predominantly female, not to mention a more dominant-male, population: Tom Hanks, John Cusack, Harrison Ford, Tobey Maguire, Tom Cruise, Patrick Wilson, Daniel Radcliffe, Milo Ventimiglia, Benedict Cumberpatch, Topher Grace, Vin Diesel, David Hasselhoff, Robin Williams, Chris O’Donnell, Burt Ward, Chris Isaaks, Billy Crudup, Chace Crawford, Kevin Bacon, Josh Hartnett, George Michael, Justin Chambers, Michael Phelps, James Brolin, Jimmy Smits, Kris Kristofferson, and Prince William.

A balanced blend of rad and trad, you play by the rules, now, embracing orthodoxy to further your progressive views. Mars opposing Uranus also helps you more clearly visualize and communicate ideas in group settings. So take the reins in making pitches and thanks for sharing at any meetings. You show finesse too, fielding any inquiry; and where you met blocks articulating, you now flow, trippingly. You pour on genuine charm with nary a disingenuous note. Impromptu declarations will serve you more than prepared missives.

Taurus

With Venus and Jupiter in solo orbits, you likewise stretch beyond comfort zones and usual creative or social limits, only to then dive deeper into meditative alone time. What you can no longer abide are vague or samey human contacts and mild amusements. It’s a good time to cancel cable, curb social networking and bring back good old fashioned modes and manners. This is a time of healing, coinciding with a rediscovery of lost pastimes and artistic or cerebral interests. Nature and contemplation open channels to spiritual wisdom.

Gemini

The Sun opposing Pluto now deepens and enriches your aesthetic. You artists get serious, inspired to new heights; while all Twins find beauty in exposing hidden, even ugly truths, perceiving the beatific in the beat. Careful not to be fooled by appearances or dazzled by any packaging—probe situations, so-called opportunities and people, for honest answers. Activate your power of appreciation, taking stock of all you possess (materially and intrinsically), giving thanks for said bounty. From there your stock will rise all the more.

Cancer

You embark upon a transformational trip, leading to the Cancer New Moon on Friday. There may be a sudden change in the company you keep, and the making of bold, new acquaintanceships. Already, the daily grind gets groovier, as you’re hit with epiphanies you can put straightaway into practice. Creative and healthful rituals take precedence. You get a glimpse of living in a manner aligned with inner callings, not outside dictates. As you stop seeking acceptance, you have a better feel for what’s acceptable in others.

Leo

Access is granted to enclaves formerly denied you. The irony is: their appeal has waned since you last pressed your nose against the window. But don’t cut off a schmushed schnoz to spite your face: Sun opposing Pluto says to sashay through open doors with an attitude of gratitude. Make no mention of ancient ill feelings. Doing so only gives would-be detractors fodder. Concentrate on showcasing skills that uniquely distinguish you. Some say you don’t play by the rules. This is true. You now rewrite them as you do your own headline.

Virgo

We are in the biz of matching Virgos’ beliefs with their behavior. Waning to the New Moon on Friday, try to own your true feelings and act accordingly. Start by taking up more emotional space. This small and meek routine is tired. Anyone who balks is meant to be challenged. And let ‘em see you sweat. There’s no benefit in pretending success comes easy. Tenacity doesn’t undermine your talent, it lobbies for it. You may once have blamed failures on not really trying. Now you can admit that any result is for no lack of doing so.

Libra

With this current opposition of Uranus and Mars in Libra, a new modus operandi is put into effect. Preservation is your watchword in regard to energy and time. Slice and dice your day, allotting set hours of focus for select activities, working only at scheduled times. And yes, you may forgo fatuous endeavors and events. Just avoid a supercilious air in so doing. If you pooh-pooh projects in which you’re not participating, one may wonder if you doth protest too much. Admit it when you feel left out. Don’t stoop to Schandenfreude.

Scorpio

Your ruler Pluto opposing the Sun optimizes opportunities for healing, some of which come out of the blue or are all too easily ignored. Accept any olive branches on offer, and mourn any losses. New characters manifest in your midst, those for whom success and being of great service aren’t mutually exclusive. Sounds like your kind of people, no? Seek to foster bonds with sexy saints and eschew stodgy sinners, visualizing their heads getting ever smaller as they storm away. Venus in free float may surprise you in love.

Sagittarius

It can feel as if you’ve been put through a series of tests, but now put your pencils down. With Jupiter footloose and fancy free, you’re ready to recess and reap some reward. If you’re overindulging in party favors, it may be a symptom of not facing facts, especially in personal bonds. You can’t manufacture feelings for those (situations as well as people) whose appeal has waned. Thinking you owe it to others to pretend is pretty puffed up and patronizing. Most Sadges now want to keep options open. And that’s just you married lot.

Capricorn

Leading to the New Moon, Friday, it’s best to temper overindulgence in celebration on the one hand, while minding a tendency for self-deprivation on the other. No beating yourself up for not meeting so-called expectations. Setting bars too high only sucks the should-be fun out of pursuing goals. Base your identity on life pursuits other than career progress. Check yourself in competitions, even friendly ones. Yours is an untrodden path, so don’t be pigeon holed. Self-starting operations succeed best. That said, you could use an assistant.

Aquarius

Your instinct to self-impose austerity measures isn’t a bad one. There is freedom and soulful challenge in tightening your belt; so long as you do so out of choice not fear. Uranus’ current opposition to Mars inspires a certain Spartan chic—you’re a spiritual warrior now on a quest to conquer the next creative milestone. You must call the shots, so agents and managers and the like may be superfluous. There is humor in a fresh artistic or intellectual direction. As financial coffers refill, seek the funny in situations and record your findings.

Pisces

Signs show you had invested in a vision of life that served as an antidote to a conditioned sense of alienation; but in a bid for so-called normalcy, life got small and stifled your sense of exploration and experimentation. But help is on the way! Jupiter now on a spree awakens your hankerings for the exotic. So get ready to venture beyond the garden gate. Co-dependents may squawk, while true-blue loved ones support your quest of singular dreams to be a smaller fish in a larger pond. And no rush. Time waits for great escap(ad)es.

Week of June 15-21 2014

Helena-Bonham-Carter-harry-potter-vs-twilight-18102877-500-408Gossip, girl: Gemini gamines can gab and babble like birds on a wire. The premier air sign—air denotes the mental plane of existence—the mutable air sign of Gemini is that of pure, buzzy, etheric, information—what’s in the air. The sign’s ruler Mercury is named for the winged, capped and footed god, its symbol recalling a pesky antennae’d insect, pulling info from the air. Or perhaps they’re not antennae but the wing-tips of an angel, an agent of soaring divinity, such as Mercury, the messenger, is to his chief god, Zeus. So, if Gemini man, like Mercury, is a messenger, then Gemini woman is the message itself; and it’s a mixed one. She often is the gossip, controversial, whether innocently or purposefully. Female counterpart to the god Mercury is winged Eris, goddess of discord. Arguably, she is a deity of information, the embodiment of the collective buzz, by its very nature, discordant. Discord supposes, indeed incites duality, the principle energy of Gemini. Eris doesn’t just throw information out there, she plants ideas in others’ heads. So when she tossed an apple scrawled with the words “for the fairest of them all” into a chic party she caused a fracture and factions to form. Gemini can be a scandal; and a scream, a party girl, albeit a light-weight one—like tiny Tinkerbelle getting blotto on a thimble of hooch. She’s sensitive, you see. Eris tossed the apple because she wasn’t invited to that party. Slighted, she caused outright Trojan War, the central figure being another prime Gemini archetype, Helen, the actual twin of Pollux, the divine so-called twin to mortal brother Castor—the two boys form the constellation Gemini. Helen and Pollux hatched from a divine egg. Castor and Clytemnestra from a mortal egg. Their mother Leda must have lain with her husband before Zeus, as swan, had a go. So. Helen and Clytemnestra personify female Geminian duality. One passive, one not so much. Helen? A scandal! She was given to Paris by Aphrodite for choosing her most fair in his judgment—he was bribed—deal-making is endemic to this sign—from Mercury we get the word merchant. In our book, Sextrology, the Gemini woman chapter is called The Gift. Of the gab, yes; but more than that: Gemini women always seem to possess such qualities, attributes or talents that could only be explained by way of divine endowment. They are exciting and challenging, enlivening and provocative, both, always equal parts a mixed bag of Mercury’s tricks; more perhaps than one bargained for, something of a commotion, possessing a certain talent for winning every argument, sometimes by way of seeming insouciance. Joan Collins, Wallace Simpson, Joan Rivers, Rosalind Russell, Marilyn Monroe, Ginnifer Goodwin, Octavia Spencer, Heidi Klum, Helena Bonham Carter, Alanis Morissette, Courteney Cox, Juliette Lewis, Julianna Margulies, Patti Stanger, Helen Hunt, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Gina Gershon, Leah Remini, Annette Bening, Kristin Scott Thomas, Laurie Metcalf, Lea Delaria, Melanie Brown.

Aries

Life may be simpler than you’re making it. Trying to plan it all down to the last detail detracts from just living it. Put to-do lists aside and start munching on experience. And give the scenery a chew while you’re at it. This is no time to be meek or to make weak choices; we want to see you throwing that Aries ego around. And yuk it up. Find sure fire ways to induce laughter. You’ve free license to express your creativity boldly, so color outside the lines and don’t edit yourself. Mars opposed Uranus calls for innovation.

Taurus

With Venus being loosed from Saturn’s grip, things get cooking—career accelerating, finances flourishing, home environment zhushing, love bonds tightening (even as they wax freer) and your artistic spirit resuscitates after a spate of dormancy or stagnancy. And if you’re wondering what that weird sensation is, it just might be happiness. To cultivate it, seek to transcend the sort of desire that causes suffering. Ephemeral pleasures and fleeting attention make you feel bereft in their wake. So what is eternal joy to you?

Gemini

As Mercury retrogrades and back-transits the Sun, you may feel pummeled with dodge balls of dull details and minutiae, seemingly aimed at knocking you off cloud nine. So sit tighter in your dreamy imagination and discern what is delusion and what is totes doable. Moreover, embrace so-called banalities as ballast to stabilize a mind tempted to scatter. Chop wood, carry water, floss teeth. It’s easy to enjoy life when it’s all sunshine and lollipops. The challenge is to love it in spite of the wee chores, snafus and imperfections.

Cancer

Any ruts you’ve fallen into are now paved with the promise of stimulating routines cum rituals. Neptune’s retrograde sees a dissolution of dependence on collectives and cult mentality, while Mercury’s retrograde puts you at the hub of professional and social activity. Having cut and pasted wisdom from a variety of sources, you now formulate a singular belief system that sustains you. Less beholden to others’ demands, you find more compassion in your detachment. Rarely have you felt so centered despite external chaos.

Leo

It’s time to reflect and mine the past for wisdom that will illumine a future path. As the Sun enters Cancer, examine present circumstances, and your behavior therein, to make sure you’re embracing, not repeating, lessons already learned. Jettison real and metaphoric baggage to speed your trip toward creative reward and, yes, certain enlightenment. Say ba-bye to needy hangers-on and eschew guilt-trippers who say “you’ve changed.” Take precious time to retool plans to achieve whatever transcendence means to you.

Virgo

Fear the reaper: With Mercury retro-transiting the Sun, by Tuesday, you see the results of the seeds you’ve sown in the recent past. The generous Virgo finds abundance; the kind, affection; while the one who spreads ill will is iced out. The pause button is pressed on career objectives that have spun, if only slightly, off axis. Focus on shoring up your base. Take stock of loyal friends and fans. Consider how it is you can make someone’s day. Say you’ve been more take than give: you now get a cosmic assist in reversing the paradigm.

Libra

You achieve increased clarity with an unapsected Neptune in retrograde. Wheaty truths are separated from shady chaffs. And you embrace the ways you delude yourself. You loathe feeling like a dilettante. But consider the etymology of the root-verb of the word, meaning: to delight. Do you delight in what you do? No? Then ditch said undertakings and alight on something new. The only person ever stopping you is you. You talk as if you believe in the power of free will. But can you walk the walk toward true destiny.

Scorpio

Aspects of a secret life or hidden agenda start to see the light of day. So accept any home truths about yourself you might have repressed. These are sparkling diamonds wrought in the coal of your darkest psychology. Indeed, behind every covert thought or action lies an opportunity for dazzling creative or intellectual expression. Maybe even a how-to book or a subterranean travel guide. It’s more than okay to fall down a rabbit hole, so long as you reemerge to share what you unearthed, as your personal insights are universally resonant.

Sagittarius

The backward motion of Mercury and Neptune lends a synchronic, mystical quality to experience. Seems you barely utter a desire before it’s realized, bumping into folks you wish to see as if by so-called accident. The truth shakes out as you step back from drama. You are a creative magician, if not a machine, rolling out a series of finished products. Others are in awe of your so-called luck in business. It’s actually the residue of design.

Capricorn

As it disassociates from Venus and Jupiter, Saturn bids you meditate on silenced destiny callings that still scream for recognition And, as you heed that voice, don’t be surprised if you sense a loving presence. Spiritual assistance is in the stars. It helps you kick any habit of turning anger inward, so you stop internalizing any past affronts made against you. True, you do strive for greatness. And yes, that has kept you from venturing new things. But you’re now set to enter a fresh phase of lovingly embracing life’s lil’ learning curves.

Aquarius

Clever manipulators may try to turn the tables on, or twist truths to incriminate, you. And despite the mountains you now move, or due to them, petty minds may point out the one stone you left unturned. Take nothing personally. You not only possess surpassing skill, vision and clarity, but the ability to transcend what green-eyed monsters place in your path. Mars opposing Uranus strengthens resolve in the face of detractors, who are really just lab rats in your experiments in impermeable selfhood. But, yeah, they’re still rats.

Pisces

They say you’ve got to be in it to win it. Now, we say: There’s no game if you don’t play. With Mercury and Neptune retrograde, you enter a mental space free of shady toyings. You will not be dragged into family contests or friendly competitions. Right? Strive to be your own authority in all settings. And throw your weight around—it’s better to ask for forgiveness than permission. Emotions are mastered as you funnel hefty feelings into pet projects. Living well isn’t the best revenge. Being well is. Put away the lampshade crown.

NPH-4

Neil Patrick Harris, becoming Hedwig

Funny how archetypes work. We say you can’t escape them. Case in point: the Gemini Man. In our book Sextrology, his chapter is called The Goodfellow. Gemini and its third astrological house focus on immediate experience. Immediacy being what both closely surrounds us, spatially, and instantaneously, time-wise. The sign is ruled by Mercury, named for the god who can travel hither and thither in a flash, like his Shakespearean prototype Puck, who is messenger to Oberon the way Mercury (Greek: Hermes) is to Jupiter (Zeus). The third house also rules the teenage slice of life, age 14-21, defined as it is by our immediate family and close cronies, siblings and sibling-like relationships, which are the kind we have at that age, and rarely after—Gemini making an exception to that rule. He personifies that experience always, being eternally youthful like Puck (Robin Goodfellow) or Hermes or his fairytale incarnation, Peter Pan—wrestling with one’s shadow signals eternal struggle with duality that the sign of the Twins expresses. In legend, we have Robin Hood, in comic books, Robin, the boy wonder. Gemini guys retain their teenage rat-pack mentality, “boon companions” coming under third-house rule. Robin of Sherwood was the first hood in his hood, if you will, doing his bit to balance the rich/poor duality—in essence, the world’s first Goodfella. In modern culture we see many a Gemini entering the zeitgeist at a tender age, playing at being adults while remaining forever something of a juvenile in his antics. Bring on the boy wonders: Michael Cera, Paul Dano, Neil Patrick Harris, Jamie Oliver, Macklemore, Boy George, Rafael Nadal, Jake Short, Dominic Cooper, Justin Long, Kanye West, Cameron Boyce, Troye Sivan, Mark Walhberg, Dave Franco, Shia LeBeouf, Hugh Dancy, T.J. Miller, Michael J. Fox, Mike Meyers, Noah Wylie, Irving Thalberg, Tupak Shakur, Gene Wilder, Gary Burghoff, Johnny Depp, Allen Ginsberg, Lenny Kravitz, John F. Kennedy.

ARIES

A sort of spiritual rebirth is in the stars with Neptune retrograde, Monday. However, psychological transformation doesn’t come easy. Old habits die hard. Expect Extinction Bursts: Ancient, bad behaviors resurfacing en route to eradication. Enjoy them while you can. In the wake of their release you’ll feel a sense of purity and innocence that is open to the miraculous. Jump cut to a series of synchronicities that will come to characterize your week. Go with it, imposing no will or desire other than to let life dictate its own direction.

TAURUS

Whether you’re dragged under by a sea of unrequited feelings or coolly glide over them, glass-bottom-boat style, comes down to your negotiation of the Full Moon, Thursday. You can create emotional space to deal with murky feelings, limiting nonessential social or spurious activities; or you can keep dancing as fast as you can, until feelings topple you. They shoot horses don’t they? Let emotions deepen your artistic voice and sharpen convictions until they pierce an old psychological fabric—breakthrough not breakdown.

GEMINI

In the world of waiting on overpromisers’ deliverables, patience is no longer a virtue. So don’t stand on ceremony in demanding your due. With Venus trine Pluto, if the errant population can’t put up, feel free to shut down said associations. But realize it’s a two-way street: you can’t hide from those to whom you made pledges, be they romantic or remunerative. If you look through a lens of lack then you will witness dearth; while seeing and appreciating all the many ways life is abundant increases its plenty, multifold.

CANCER

In anticipation of Thursday’s Full Moon, make time to recreate, in all senses of the word. Refresh mind and spirit with simple tasks and pleasures—don’t tax them with selfish or sycophantic plots or posturing. Of course you must aspire to lofty goals and ideals. Just do so from a private place of true yearning, not for overt attention. Saturn opposed Venus infuses creativity with discipline, facilitating the doing of supremely productive things; like launching a project or product, staging a show or coup, or entering rehab, again.

LEO

Mercury’s retrograde provides the right environment for percolating grains of ideas into practicable projects. Approach efforts from a more gut level, and ground plans that have worked so far only in the abstract. With Neptune retrograde, too, you can blur boundaries and dissolve what separates you from both people and the goals you seek to achieve. Getting to know the those around you more closely fosters a sense of well-being as well as community. Being aloof can’t mask a fear of intimacy. You know you have that, right?

VIRGO

Be real. At every turn this week, check yourself. And keep dropping pretenses. With Mercury and Neptune retrograde, actions speak louder than bombs. Don’t embellish or blow smoke. Talent, which you have by the buttload, is half the recipe for fulfillment. Humility and team playing make up the other. So demure where you usually gloat or ride rough shod. Any damage control to do on that score? Likewise, accept olive branches and spark up peace pipes. Blowouts with others hurt you more than they do them.

LIBRA

The trine of Mercury and Neptune, both retrograde, actually provides a laser-ability to cut through foggy situations and get to the bottom of what ails limp systems and associations. Though you possess a renaissance genius for managing minutiae in many areas down to the last detail, now is about cultivating higher mind and expanding perception. It’s time to hone a belief system you can count, if not bank, on. So let’s put down the self-help books and start being a living example of the principles (you just need reminding) you embody.

SCORPIO

Waxing to the Full Moon, late Thursday, the universe wants answers regarding property investment, relocation, and where you’d next like to land. You can now clearly verbalize self-concerns of polarization between personal comfort and professional promise. The stars say you can have it all. This simply requires being adaptable and willing to go the extra mile, sometimes, literally, to bridge business goals and your ideal design for living. Loved ones tug at heart or apron stings. Or are they just pulling your codependent chain?

SAGITTARIUS

Delegating is key to freeing up more time to do as much good for as many people as possible. With Neptune retrograde, however, some may suspect you have less than selfless motivations. These are those who are up for elimination. All you ask of people now is moral support. You should only surround yourself with the sanguine. You can’t afford a single negative thought or influence. Loved ones make demands with the Full Moon, Thursday. Remember: Yes is both an affirmation and an expression of acceptance.

CAPRICORN

Addressing personal and artistic delusions while healing lingering relationship issues is the order of the week, courtesy of Saturn opposing Venus. Put talents to the test, showing others what you’ve got to offer. You can a) make a living off your gifts; and b) be the most productive babe; with c) the most functional bonds, on the astrological block. Still, super achievement takes sweat, so don’t waste it on the small stuff. And stop pointing out others’ weaknesses; just mind your own. Becoming who you are is quite a spiritual quest.

AQUARIUS

Expect to perform a juggling act leading to the Full Moon on Thursday. You master the art of balancing others’ needs with your own. Mercury trining Neptune aids pioneering efforts, as you increasingly carve out a clear identity within your chosen field. Both planets, in retrograde, lend the desired effect of slowing down time, helping you maintain a spiritual center and avoid racing ahead or buckling under pressures. All you’ve quietly nurtured now begins to flourish; and solitary confinement is a reward not a punishment.

PISCES

With Neptune retrograde, Monday, you’re at a crossroads: stick with the status quo or plot a new course that calls for dramatic life changes. Familial ties may be partly binding you; but the larger issue is trepidation over losing some big-fish-small-pond status. It’s time to stand on the shoulders of heroes to further singular aims and risk a wider arena. The bubble in which you’ve kept yourself is slowly beginning to burst. It isn’t nerves or fear you feel, it’s adrenalin. Let it fuel you. Don’t drown or otherwise anesthetize it.

Week of June 1-7, 2014

Adriana Lima

We’ve said Gemini is ruled by winged Mercury, god of the crossroads. Being at a crossroads spells a difficult decision. The winged goddess of discord, Eris, lobs an apple into a divine party with the words “for the fairest among you” penned upon it. Someone must decide. The Judgment of Paris sees the poor boy choosing Aphrodite who promised him Helen for the honor. Helen is a quadruplet. She and brother Pollux hatched from one egg, and Clytemnestra and Castor from another, Zeus having taken swan form in the fathering. Castor and Pollux are the Gemini “twins”. Helen and Clytemnestra, then, too, no? Helen hooked up with Paris who was from the wrong side of the tracks. Fast forward to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet whose suitor, pre-Romeo, is likewise called Paris. The name Juliet translates to both “child of Jove”, a name for Jupiter, Greek: Zeus, and “downy”, another nod to birds. Star-crossed and prone to love at first sight with someone from the wrong side of the crossroads, Juliet is a prime literary archetype of the Gemini woman, in keeping with the sign’s rule of the human age of 14-21, a time when one first bites into the apple of temptation. Helen and Paris, Romeo and Juliet are forbidden fruit. This matches the biblical view of the zodiac as well. The first fiery sign Aries is akin to big-bang creation; Taurus to the lush green Eden and temptation; and Gemini, the twins, the Fall, duality, is the consequence of eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Helen and Juliet are echoes of the prurient Eve; just as is Lolita, who tempts the dually named Humbert Humbert. And you thought it was all just an accident that Gemini women seemed a ripe combination of guilelessness and game. This most gamine of the zodiacal girls does tend to be gorgeous enough to launch a thousand cosmetic campaigns; and she is inclined to fall utterly, if not easily, in love or whatever it is the kids are calling it nowadays. Innocent as a rose—mind the thorns: Kate Upton, Marilyn Monroe, Adriana Lima, Isabella Rossellini, Bar Refaeli, Heidi Klum, Elizabeth Hurley, Brooke Shields, Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Naomi Campbell, Anna Kournikova, Lana Del Rey, Michelle Phillips, Molly Sims, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Autumn and Willow Shields, and that two-faced swan herself, Natalie Portman.

Aries

Mars’ continued opposition to Uranus calls for integration, bringing myriad moving parts of your life into concert. And with Mercury retrograde, by Saturday, you should put out all fires and consolidate your energy. Personal fulfillment requires mastering emotions, stepping back to gain big-picture perspectives on family and friendly dynamics. This is tantamount to cultivating lasting calm. Specialize more in career, zeroing in on select goals. Let bonds grow deeper. Even if you’re hitched, a cerebral love affair is in the stars.

Taurus

Enter a new phase of abundance, to be measured in artistic output, a widening circle of friends, and increased romance. Venus sextile Neptune and Mercury can ramp it up with an existing mate or spell a spate of date after date. You’ve gone without excess material trappings of late, and are happier for it. Still, you’ve an urge to crawl into the largest lap of luxury you can find. With Mercury retrograde, by Saturday, providing yourself perks and props delivers the right message (to you and others): that you are worthy of tribute.

Gemini

Empowered, you exude charisma and confidence as Mercury retrogrades, by Saturday. You feel no need to grab at what you deem rightfully yours—you reach out and gently pluck. You are more symbiotic in relationships, spending quality one-on-one time with a short list—or bus—of fine, fellow freaks and fringe dwellers. Could-be problems are met with compromise solutions. You discover all secret passageways to progress, forgiving those who “did you wrong”. A chunky career offer ironically manifests as you step away.

Cancer

It’s easy to get bogged down by obligation, seeking short cuts to fulfilling responsibilities. But that only thwarts character building. And it’s mental muscle you need most now. So power through—doing so makes future challenges more cinchy. Mercury retrograde by Saturday says that sidestepping what life serves would also rob you of the serendipity that spells success. In accepting what life brings, you find the majesty in the so-called mundane. All said, this week requires some soul searching—that, too, is long overdue.

Leo

Hitting your stride now, you vividly and effectively embody evolved ideals without seeming like some kind of free radical. As momentum builds, you gain support for so-called off-center notions, winning over any stuffed suits who could pony up to help fund your visions. Romantic and creative interest in you is piqued—no need for any hard sells. Mercury retrograde, by Saturday, eliminates any competition, or rather, reveals you really have no rivals. There is an invisible powerline between your true desire and your destiny.

Virgo

Mercury retrograde, by Saturday, bubbles emotions to the surface. It’s cool to wear them on your sleeve; but don’t people please. It can seem patronizing—you can’t fake heartfelt. Need a career breakthrough? Well, that entails acknowledging that some of your shtick has gone stale. Would-be champions want new works and widgets from you. A packed schedule doesn’t equal success. Narrow commitments, devoting more time and energy, solely, to quality ones. Neptune trine Mercury says to mine your dreams for direction.

Libra

Karma shakes out as Mercury grinds to retrograde. If you’ve been selflessly showering others with support and appreciation, expect juicy rewards and opportunities. If you’ve been in a narcissistic vortex, scapegoating people/places/things for your shortcomings, expect to do penance. Venus sextile Mercury and Neptune teaches a life lesson: Playing the victim takes up a lot of freaking time and space. And people have limited patience. More is happening on this big blue marble than the machinations of a noisy Libran mind.

Scorpio

Scorpios all over the globe are coming to the end of their tether, making clean breaks and drastic changes. But, as sweeping as you feel, you needn’t be hasty. Mercury retrograde, by Saturday, says to make transitions slowly and deliberately. There may be so-called losses you don’t need to cut. In a zeal to push on, you might heedlessly ditch plans or people that mean a great deal. So cool your jets lest ye jettison the good stuff. Maybe you should eradicate bad habits instead of avoiding human reminders that you possess them.

Sagittarius

Could it be that close cronies have lost that loving feeling? Or were their affections predicated on what you could do for them? Mercury slowing to retrograde provides clarity on those with two faces. But beware of confrontation as Sun trine Mars can make temper flare. Be the strong and silent type. You may be overly solicited to get involved in some deal—don’t jump to collude or collaborate. Now is about basking in autonomy. The Grand Trine of Jupiter, Saturn and Chiron makes the power of No a holistic, healing one.

Capricorn

You’re not wrong in thinking you have all the answers; it’s just there’s no boon in letting others know it. The current Grand Trine of Saturn, Jupiter and Chiron suggests that what loved ones need now is a good listener. Otherwise, keep your own counsel; and mine what you’d like to say to others for nuggets of wisdom you can chew on. In biz, you may take a fall if only to stave off further conflict or complication. But not to worry: The truth wins out; and you’ll be ultimately vindicated and invested with increased trust.

Aquarius

Now’s time to ask for help in launching new enterprises. And to pay for the privilege. Mixing new people into your current equation for success sees a faster roll-out of plans. Regardless, you feel you’ve too much on your plate and a plethora of looming deadlines. Poppycock. Mercury retrograde, by Saturday, has the magical effect of slowing down time. (Actually you’re just streamlining the way you use it.) Watch your horizons expand as you put unique visions into solid action. Proliferation of good works is its own reward.

Pisces

Don’t be hating Mercury entering retrograde now. It’s like a big slow, reset button in the sky, putting to bed old problems and peevishness, opening new vistas to learning and travel. The cosmos wants you as fancy free as can be. Doing plenty of nothing is most productive. So table what you can. This lets repressed feelings rise, isolating emotional blocks to be transcended. It also allows the squeakiest wheels to get oiled. Priorities prioritize themselves. Neptune trine Mercury creates an environment in which to evolve.

Gemini is ruled by Mercury, named for the scrappy god of the crossroads. Literally, or just in their hearts, Gemini guys are street-wise garçcons de la rue: poets, troubadours, urchins, scamps, tricksters and jugglers (if just of the truth), dual by nature, dualistic by design. They are artful dodgers, fast-talking champions of the common man. There is a bit of Robin Hood in every Gemini hood in the hood. That aerial hero in green tights recalls another mercurial character, namely, Robin Goodfellow, Shakespeare’s Puck, synonymous with Peter Pan, all fairy versions of winged Mercury, the magician and messenger god who, like Peter and Puck, never ages past adolescence. Duality in all its forms; but knowledge, especially, of mortality and immortality, is the theme of the Gemini male psyche. The tale of the male “twins” of Gemini, Castor and Pollux (actually quadruplets who hatched from separate eggs with twin sisters, fathered by Zeus in the guise of a Swan) is hinged on their mortal/deitific dialectic. Birds and wings symbolize the divine side of the human condition, which we all possess. Gemini man tends to express his own via flights of fancy and the proliferation of ideas, poetry, music, writing, or whatever magical or Machiavellian maneuvers with which he seeks to make a lasting mark on the world. He tends to pack a wallop with his words, Mercury (Logos) being god of communication. And many a Gemini actor has played into his airy, pirate archetype. Think Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow, Errol Flynn’s Robin Hood or Captain Blood, Douglas Fairbanks’ Robin Hood or Thief of Bagdad, James Purfoy’s Blackbeard, Jason Isaac’s Captain Hook, Geoffrey Rush’s Captain Barbossa. And then there are the roguish, anti-hero stylings of Colin Farrell, Tupac Shakur, Stellan Skarsgard, Dominic Cooper, Paul Bettany, Peter Dinklage, Hugh Laurie, Malcolm McDowell, Joseph Fiennes, Russell Brand, Rupert Everett, Morrissey, Bob Dylan, Liam Neeson, Ice Cube and Josh Lucas.

Aries

You’re a natural warrior, but you must be still and hold vigil, along with your tongue. The Sun trine Mars, while squaring Neptune, means that delusional fabricants surround you. But instead becoming red in the face, delivering reality checks every which way, you must have the presence of mind to just smile and nod when confronted with pipe dreamers, wishful thinkers, grand gesturers or dirty liars. Okay, you can roll your eyes a little, but that’s it. You have mountains to move and you do so one tiny pebble at a time.

Taurus

Your mental pathways are being reconfigured, heading would-be pathologies off at the pass. No joke. You are thankfully less reactionary and more observational, with Venus sashaying out of Taurus by Thursday. Your new mental processing system gets tested when sudden changes in plans occur, threatening to impact your lifestyle in a major way. Remember: nothing is personal and bupkis can derail you but your own attitude. You can play the victim for, like, five minutes, tops. Then, you must begin mining for silver linings.

Gemini

You have this sense that things are unraveling. It’s the waning to the New Gemini Moon on Thursday. Perhaps you feel that devotees on whom you depend are investing feeling elsewhere? You see, they assume you’re tougher, more secure and resilient than that. They’d never guess your trademark detachment is a defense mechanism protecting you from getting too close because you actually do bruise so easily. So be forthright! Air your tender feelings and lets others know you care; it’ll make them more sensitive in the future.

Cancer

You seek clarity in a swirling sea of disinformation. Mercury trine Neptune slaps on an optimistic-realistic filter, so you’ll take nothing at face value nor discount any possibility either. This proves helpful given the hype on new projects being dangled: People may tell tales of doors that will open and of future opportunities had in exchange for sweat equity. Yeah: No. Be of the mind that too much time making a living, leaves little for living it. The New Moon, Thursday, dispels any doubts that you lack desired or required expertise.

Leo

Personal bonds are a potential energy drain as you’re urged to channel verve into solo pursuits. Sun square Neptune says to check that relationships don’t become excuses for not following dreams. You may feel at odds with convention leading to the New Moon, Thursday. Good. This is no time to play by old rules. Risk-taking is rewarded. But defer any need for instant gratification. Impatience has been an Achilles heel; yet you can now get a handle on it. All told, you may now act in accordance with your best vision of self.

Virgo

It’s tough to put your finger on what you want, or from whence your pleasure or wisdom should derive. Let it be: A lesson in not having to fill the void or stimulate mindless senses. Embrace a delicious feeling of vacancy. Mercury trine Neptune inspires you to voice truest lusts for life, without self-imposed distractions. Live with any so-called unbearable lightness of being until you glimpse a fresh direction. By Thursday’s New Moon, you will be suffused with a renewed sense of purpose and gainful momentum.

Libra

Stop. Spinning wheels are a sign that internal dialogues must be silenced. Mars direct in Libra, trine the Sun, prescribes living more in your body and less in your head. Feeling burdened by duty is an opportunity to reframe so-called chores as moving meditations. See current struggles as an investment in future success. Avoid deciding who you are or what you want to be. Fuzzy finances clarify in your favor and cash flows more readily after the New Moon, Thursday. Don’t let a pile-up of projects unravel any travel plans.

Scorpio

The Cosmos wonders: Can you ask for help? Especially with issues you’ve guarded from others. Pluto T-square Mars and Uranus lends you a childlike vulnerability and an unapologetic need to recharge and enjoy life’s simple pleasures. Sophisticated settings and social posturing seem silly—funnily, just as your public persona enjoys a status rise. The moral of the story hits home with Thursday’s New Moon: It’s best not to invest personal feelings in career connectors. Save it for any emotionally starved loved ones.

Sagittarius

Powerfully persuasive, you amass more than a few minions to do your bidding. Having kept a low profile for the most part, lately, you make up for lost time, now, imposing authority and otherwise topping the food chain. Leading up to the New Moon, Thursday, you are eager if not anxious to manifest desired outcomes. And you may chomp the heads off those who question your comprehensive vision. Moving forward, you’re more self- assured, as evidenced by a less overt agenda to convince (yourself and) others of the fact.

Capricorn

Awe for heroes or mentors notwithstanding, you step from any shadows to reveal your own shining talents. Where you once felt skittish, you now feel sanctioned and, shall we say, assisted. The New Moon on Thursday makes it known that money can and will be made through challenging opportunities and by ditching tired routines. You’re developing creative/intellectual callouses, putting ideas out there, even if they get shot down. They say it’s the things you don’t do that you regret most. What’s say we don’t test that theory.

Aquarius

Nigh on Thursday’s New Moon, extravagant impulses are reigned in, lending you an increasingly sober vision. Ironically, you can better run with far-fetched ideas or satisfy far-flung longings. All with secure footing. With Mercury trine Neptune, you’re all for speeding things along, removing would-be obstacles with optimistic aplomb. Real friends have been hard to find in an existing landscape; but fresh devotees emerge from the mist as you glimpse a future of truer blendships. And who says geographical cures don’t work?

Pisces

Ye profound Pisces in existing bonds feel the need to go deeper into, or dissolve, them. Fish in fresh relationships invest more feeling. This thrills or sends partners for the hills. The Sun square Neptune kills off delusions in love; while Mercury trine Neptune sees creative visualizations being realized. As your star rises, you may leave others in its dust. That is to say, sprinkling those along your path with powerful blessings. The New Moon, Thursday, can inspire juvenile antics. Perhaps pubertal acts are just what Dr. Soul ordered.

Week of May 18-24 2014

Tinkerbelle-like Twins Gal, Carey Mulligan

CAREY MULLIGAN, Tinkerbelle-like Twins lady

Gemini is the premier air sign, ruled by winged Mercury, the dualistic messenger god of the word (logos) and all forms of communication and gossip, girl. While the Twins guy is Peter Pan-complexed and a bit fly-by-night, Twins woman is the original Tinkerbelle: equal parts manipulative and loveable, disruptive and protective, running hot and cold. “I need you to love me”…. “Stand back, stand back.” Gemini women draw on the archetype of Eris, goddess of discord who, feeling snubbed for not being invited to a divine party of god/desses, caused a buzz by lobbing an apple into the mix on which were written the words “for the fairest among you”—jump cut to the Judgment of Paris and all-out Trojan war. Enter another Gemini archetype, Helen of Troy, the true twin of Pollux—they hatched from one of two eggs their mother Leda layed (after she was laid by Zeus in the guise of a swan). In the twin egg were mortal twins Castor and Clytemnestra. Castor and Pollux are the twins of the Gemini constellation, while Helen and Clytemnestra express the Gemini woman duality: passive/provocative, naive/knowing, meek/magnificent, vulnerable/vainglorious, silly/sublime, delicate/diva-like, if not tragic/transcendent. And it’s this mix that fascinates us. That and the fact that the Gemini lady can be pretty/cuckoo, or at least portray cray-cray scary/well: Stevie Nicks, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Naomi Campbell, Nicole Kidman, Kathleen Turner, Angelina Jolie, Helena Bonham-Carter, Anne Heche, Heidi Klum, Liz Hurley, Brooke Shields, Lauryn Hill, Natalie Portman, Fairuza Balk, Juliette Lewis, Carey Mulligan, Jewel Kilcher, Ally Sheedy and the tiny/giant Olsen twins.

ARIES

Your ruler Mars leaving retrograde on Tuesday removes the blocks to a much-needed catharsis. So resist any means of numbing your feelings. You might nearly speak in tongues, voicing the age-old emotions you’ve bottled up. Your infamous issues with authority fly to the fore and you’ll tell would-be dictators where to get off. But temper temper. Calmly define your boundaries, not to be crossed. You lose crucial debates if you lose your cool. Tyrants taking liberties fall away by the weight of their veiled insecurities.

TAURUS

Your unique path is illuminated by Venus conjunct Uranus. You discern a fresh sense of direction and are suffused with a newly liberated spirit to follow it. Planet moves ease the daily grind, facilitate solo pursuits, and free you from personal ties that bind. If you work in partnership, increased autonomy furthers even shared goals. Professional you is now uber-persuasive, sealing deals. Choose reassuring luxurious avenues over budget ones for marketing your wares. You’re now a mad fantasist in love or whatever it is you’re feeling.

GEMINI

All seems heightened, with the Sun entering your sign and Mars going direct, amping your creative power. You have a bring-it-on attitude which makes even crunch times feel like a working holiday. Your bffs watch you transform, as if, overnight, from most-def to least stressed wo/man on the astrological block. Expression of talents is fast-tracked as your artier career inroads deepen. Expect multiple sparks of genius. Move quickly on your boldest ideas. Don’t fret over details. And through it all, embody your kindest self.

CANCER

Old wounds of self doubt heal with nary a visible scar. And you can be of great help to those going through struggles not unknown to you. With Mercury trining the cosmic shaman Chiron, wounds become blessings. And you seek the Truth. Those who can’t look you in the eye totes have something to hide. Judge not; open your heart all the more. Focus is on creating an atmosphere of acceptance in all you do. You thus allow people to be their best. And you let life unfold according to its own miraculous, synchronic design.

LEO

You now bask in the afterglow of a scored achievement or the overcoming of some fear. Take a breather before attacking the next hurdle. With Sun in Gemini you exercise your versatility muscles. Be a wonderful wiz of whatevs, going with the flow, taking setbacks and snafus in stride. This would be a display of active faith that the best is, indeed, yet to come. With Venus joined Uranus, you find pleasure in unexpected departures, whether a sudden flight to parts unknown or a fling with someone with, well, some parts unknown.

VIRGO

You’re suffused with a spirit of surrender, courtesy of a trine between Mercury and Chiron; which also brings your guard down, allowing for more guileless giggles. You see that every move you make mustn’t have a lucrative or loving pay off. You act without (s)expectation. There may be reunions with those consigned to the past. Reminiscing is healthy to the point of nostalgia, which gets noxious. Be put in touch with old goals and feelings. Any sharp pangs are the release of old pains…paving a path to sustainable joy?

LIBRA

There is temptation to be a micro-manager run amok. But you’ve evolved the ability to administer to every detail, systemizing It All, with calm finesse. Venus conjunct Uranus provides do-overs to like experiences that didn’t gel in the past. That means you’re easier, less judgmental, patient and not the least bit power hungry. More energy goes to your exacting eye. Maybe you need to raise the bar in friendships and expect more? Otherwise, you’re a source of solace. Satisfying a craving for intimacy entails revealing more depth.

SCORPIO

It’s time to square your goal-setting strategies with your ultimate aspirations. Mars out of retrograde, Tuesday, helps lay out practical plans to realize your pipeyest dreams. Still there are no shortcuts; and dumb luck is for dumb asses. Family, friendly connections are only the icing. You create your own cakey opportunities by honing skills and talents. You just might learn to love the process of becoming what you’ve been in such a rush to be. In so doing, real magic can find its way into the mix. Patience is an investment in the future.

SAGITTARIUS

You’re more chill, magnanimous in dealings, dropping your guard and any tired grudges. Uranus T-square to Jupiter and Pluto suggests you’ve hatchets to bury dating back to Y2K. Strained relationships have taken up emotional energy, which can now be channeled into thriving bonds. With Mars direct, you’re offered the role of a lifetime: That of bigger person. And it’s a part you can play to the hilt. And hear that? It’s the sound of squeakier clean karma. From this moment on, the person most in need of your forgiveness is you.

CAPRICORN

Healthy boundaries are the hallmark of a good Capricorn. Yet the Sun square Neptune now makes your barriers more porous. You will still filter out emotional cling-ons and interpersonal drama, but you allow in divine inspiration and a certain joie de vivre. Let others buzz or flail around, while you stay the course, centered, slowing down Time. Such stillness gives you the edge with deadlines and attracts like-minds who seek a self-contained partner or playmate. Venus joined Uranus may suddenly dispense some coin!

AQUARIUS

The homie who said “to be great is to be misunderstood” definitely had people problems. With Venus conjoined Uranus squaring Jupiter and Pluto: there should be no doubt how grand a lady/boy you are, provided you don’t second guess yourself. Not only is your mandate to make unexpected moves; you must also refuse to explain or complain (about anything) in the process. Be of the mind that wherever you are is the place to be. Trumpet your choices from the rooftops. You now play with the big girls—they need another hero.

PISCES

Beware of self-recrimination creeping (back?) into your life. Repeat after us: I’ve done nothing wrong and haven’t lost a thing. So-called big breaks or people that fall through or away are meant to do so, making room for true affinity and abundance. The Sun square Neptune strikes a chord. You may connect with a greater audience via creative works—the goal, no?—and good old anxiety needn’t surface. Getting what you want may have once set you off the rails, but no longer. You’re ready, pippin, for your corner of the sky.
