One Tough Leo Ginger: Kevin McKidd

One Tough Leo Ginger: Kevin McKidd

Just as the previous sign of Cancer is ruled by the mother-principled Moon, which portrays creation as a nurturing goddess-source from whom all matter springs (cardinal water), august Leo, ruled by the father-principled Sun, sees creation from the view of a distant, fiery sky god (fixed fire) to be revered, if not feared. Leo rules the 5th astrological house, that of co-creation with god, the mantle of which Leo man, the zodiac’s own lion king, willingly dons, embodying entitlement, if not divine right. Let’s just say he assumes authority easily, as author, akin to Arthur, boy-king, like David, taking the central role. The Sun symbol is a dot inside a circle—think Arthur seated center at table. The lion is king… of beasts; David slays Goliath, read: his own giant beastly nature, just as Arthur subdued and civilized the pagan wilds, inside himself. Leo man can be a hot head. There we said it. Little wonder that the shadow side of the sign has spawned those having such dictatorial sway: Napoleon, Mussolini, Castro, Martha Stewart. But seriously, think of the many tyrannical film directors and kings of that industry, those who will make or break others’ careers: Hitchcock (go ask Tippi), Demille, Kubrick (go ask Shelley), David O. Russell (go ask Lily). Huston, Redford, Cameron, Polanski, Penn, M. Night Shayamalan, Kevin Smith. And then there are Leo actors who play god-complexed egoists with a vengeance: Robert Deniro, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Matt LeBlanc, Andrew Garfield—probably also that ginger cat, Garfield—Kevin Spacey, Billy Bob Thornton, Wesley Snipes, David Duchovny, Adam Samberg, Laurence Fishburn, Sam Elliot, Jean Reno, Kevin McKidd, Jeremy Piven and Steve Martin.

Aries

Saturn now direct reins in extravagant impulses, lending you an increasingly sober vision. That said, you can now run faster and farther with wild ideas or satisfy far-flung longings. All with goat-sure footing. You’re bent on speeding things along, removing would-be obstacles with sanguine aplomb. Real cronies may’ve been hard to find in your emotional landscape of late; but fresh devotees now emerge from the mist as you glimpse a future of truer friendships. Geographical cures mightn’t work but they surely can’t hurt.

Taurus

You’re urged to go deeper into existing bonds or to dissolve them. A Grand Trine of the Moon, Mars and Saturn in water challenges you to invest more feeling. This thrills or sends partners running for the hills. Delusions in love dissolve; while your creative visualizations are being realized. As your star rises, people may feel left in the dust. But it’s a trail of glory, and said dust is the nutritious star variety. You’re given to child-like antics by week’s end, while a dash of youthfulness is just what the soul doctor ordered.

Gemini

You now ease into warrior mode, with Mars trine Saturn, but be still, holding vigil, along with your Mercury-ruled tongue. Delusional fabricants may surround you, so steer clear. Don’t bother getting red-faced, delivering reality checks. Have the presence of mind to just smile and nod when confronted with green-eyed opportunists, grand gesturers or dirty, stinking liars. Yes, you may roll your eyes a bit but that’s it. Creatively, intellectually, you have mountains to move; but patience—you do so one small pebble at a time.

Cancer

Your mental pathways are being rerouted so to head off would-be pathologies at the pass. With Mercury entering into opposition with Neptune, you are less reactionary and more observational and empathetic. Your new cranial processing system gets tested when sudden plan changes occur, threatening to impact objectives, and in a major way. Remember: nothing is personal and nada can derail you but your own negative thoughts. You may play the victim for five minutes, tops, before you start mining for silver linings.

Leo

You may get the sense that things are unraveling, or that devotees on whom you depend are investing emotion elsewhere. Not so. With both the Sun and Pluto unaspected, others simply assume you’re tougher and loads more secure and resilient than you are. They’d never guess your detachment is a defense mechanism designed to protect you from getting too close (because you do bruise so easily). So be clear and air tender feelings, letting others see you care—it’ll make folks more sensitive to your emotions in the future.

Virgo

You are seeking clarity in a swirling sea of disinformation. Mars trine Saturn slaps on a realistic filter, so you needn’t take anything at face value nor, by the same token, discount any possibility. This proves helpful given hype on new projects or offers being promised you: People will tell tall tales of great opportunity in hopes you’ll invest sweat equity. Uh, no. You’re of the mind that: Too much time making a living, leaves little for living it. Saturn direct will dispel any lingering doubts that you lack desired or required expertise.

Libra

Personal bonds may be a source of energy drainage, urging you to channel verve into solo pursuits. A stellium of Mercury, Jupiter and Venus square Saturn determines that your relationships won’t become excuses for not pursuing dreams. You may feel at odds with convention but this is a good thing. It’s no time to play by old rules. Risk-taking is now rewarded. But defer any need for instant gratification. Impatience can be a fatal flaw; so rein it in. You have free license to act according to your highest vision of self.

Scorpio

You may have trouble putting your finger on exactly what you want, or from whence enjoyment or enlightenment should derive. Consider it a lesson in not having to fill some void or unduly stimulate your senses. Embrace a delicious sense of vacuity. The Sun and Pluto unaspected challenges you to voice your lusts for life, without self-imposed clauses or caveats. Abide your unbearable lightness of being until you glimpse a fresh direction. Saturn direct now suffuses you with a renewed sense of purpose and forward momentum.

Sagittarius

Mars trine Saturn prescribes living more in your body and less in your mind, which is now made noisy by a stellium of Mercury, Jupiter and Venus. Feeling the weight of obligation is your cue to reimagine so-called chores as moving meditations—as you likewise see current struggles as an investment in future success. Avoid deciding who you are, or what you want to be; simply observe whom it is you’re becoming. Fuzzy finances clear up in your favor and cash flows more freely. Don’t let a glut of projects spoil any travel plans.

Capricorn

Saturn direct now provides you with an unapologetic need to recharge and enjoy life’s simple pleasures. Sophisticated settings and social posturing seem fatuous; ironically, just as your public persona is enjoying a rise in status. Saturn squaring a stellium of Mercury, Jupiter and Venus gives voice to long squelched opinions that now beg for expression. You can no longer sugar coat or play an assigned role with family or friends. You’re fiercer than ever in your determination to do what you will and live where you want.

Aquarius

You’re awfully persuasive, now, recruiting minions to do your bidding. Having kept a low profile for the most part this year, you now make up for lost time, imposing authority and demanding attention. With Mars entering Leo, you are eager if not desperate to manifest desired outcomes. And you more easily bite the heads off those who question your panoramic vision. You’re more self- assured, as evidenced by a less overt need to convince (yourself and) others of that fact. An estranged or absent figure makes a return.

Pisces

You step out of the shadows of partners, heroes or mentors. Where you once felt skittish, you now feel sanctioned and, we dare say, spiritually assisted. Neptune opposed Mercury sees that money can, and will, be made in ways that others almost universally label impractical. You build artistic and intellectual muscle now by putting ideas out there, especially if they get shot down. They say it’s the things you don’t do that you regret most, but it’s an adage you won’t put to the test. Fear, you feel, is the opposite of Faith.

week of July 26-August 1 2015

Leo woman draws on the complementary archetypes of both the Goddess of the Hunt, Artemis (Roman: Diana), and the Goddess of the Hearth, Hestia (Roman:Vesta). The sign of Leo rules the heart; and the Sun, the heart and hearth of the solar system, rules it. Leo women can be most predatory, particularly in public life, fairly stalking their successes; while, in private, they take firm hold of the center around which others draw or revolve. What paradoxically connects the seemingly opposite Artemis and Hestia is that they are both protectors—of the wild and of domestic life, respectively. In Homer’s Iliad, Artemis is referred to as “a lioness amongst women,” and we see in the Leo lion a dual nature of ferocity and maternal affection. Indeed, lions are matriarchal, females of the species being the prime movers of their prides. It’s the same with the human variety. Leo men are typically laid back, lovers of lolling about, while Leo women are fiercely energetic self-starters with, sometimes gappy toothed, predators’ smiles. Some savage Leo sweethearts: Anna Paquin, Elizabeth Moss, Madonna, Gillian Anderson, Rose Byrne, Vera Farmiga, Amy Adams, Mila Kunis, Jennifer Lawrence, Sandra Bullock, Kate Beckinsale, Kristin Wiig, Iman, Jaqueline Kennedy Onassis, Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lopez, Lynda Carter, Louise Fletcher, Helen Mirren, Elizabeth Berkley, Taylor Schilling, Yvonne Strahovski.

Aries

Whoever said that to be great is to be misunderstood might have had people problems. As, with the end of Uranus squaring Pluto, there should be no doubt how grand a lady/boy you truly are; so long as you don’t second guess yourself. You not only possess a mandate to make bold, unexpected moves; but you should 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 decisions from the rooftops. And get set to play in the big leagues. A Blue Aquarian Moon, in the wee hours, Friday amplifies your eccentricities.

Taurus

Beware of self-recrimination creeping back into your experience. There’s nada you’ve done wrong and you haven’t lost a thing. So-called big breaks, or people, that fall through, or away, are meant to do exactly that, making room for true affinity and abundance. Venus retrograde strikes a chord. You may connect with a greater audience via creative works, which is the goal, no?, without anxiety needing to surface. Getting what you want may have once sent you off the rails, but no longer. You’re ready to own your corner of the sky. A Blue Moon in Aquarius Thursday night into Friday, raises your career status.

Gemini

Mercury trine Uranus heightens emotions to crescendo and much-needed catharsis. So resist any temptations to numb your feelings. You can nearly speak in tongues, voicing age-old feelings you’ve bottled up. Longstanding authority issues come to the fore. And you’ll tell dictators or detractors where to get off. But do temper temper. Preventatively define your boundaries, not that they won’t be crossed. You lose crucial debates if you lose your cool. Bullies who overstep fall away by the weight of their grand delusions. With the Blue Moon in Aquarius forming on Thursday, you ache to expand mind and horizons.

Cancer

The Moon waxing Blue, after midnight Thursday, illuminates your path. You discern a fresh sense of direction and are suffused with a newly liberated spirit to guide you. Venus conjunct Jupiter now eases the daily grind, facilitating solo pursuits and freeing you from personal ties that bind. If you work in partnership, increased autonomy actually furthers shared goals. In career, you’re now ultra persuasive at sealing deals. Choose reassuringly luxurious avenues over budget ones for marketing your wares. Short cuts cut you. You’re now a fantasist in love or whatever you call those feelings stirring in your nether regions.

Leo

Things seem to be heightening, as we build to the Blue Moon in the wee hours on Friday. This is augmenting your creative power. You have a new bring-it-on attitude which makes even crunchy times filled with deadlines feel like a working holiday. True friends 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 artier inroads get groovier. Expect multiple flashes of genius and strike while ideas are hottest. Don’t sweat the details; and through what seems an emotional obstacle course, embody your gentlest self.

Virgo

With the Sun and Mars trine Saturn, you are setting fresh intentions. Old wounds of self- doubt heal without a visible scar. And you can be of great help to those going through struggles not unfamiliar to you. Now that Uranus and Pluto are no longer squared, you seek the Truth. Those who can’t look you in the eye do indeed have something to hide. Judge not. Open your heart ever more. Focus on creating an atmosphere of acceptance—you thus allow people to be their best. And you let life unfold according to its own miraculous design. In love, you’re more sought after with the Blue Moon early Friday.

Libra

You are in the process of overcoming certain fears while summoning resolve to take on new challenges. With Venus retrograde, you should exercise your versatility. Be a wonderful wiz of whatever, going with the flow, taking setbacks and snafus in stride. You’re called to embody active faith, especially, in that the best is yet to come. Try to find pleasure in unexpected departures, whether they be impromptu flights to parts unknown or a sudden fling with someone with, well, parts unknown. The trick is not to let vague distractions become obsessive rabbit holes. With Friday’s Blue Moon you eschew amateurish ways.

Scorpio

You’re suffused with a spirit of surrender, with the end of the Uranus and Pluto square. This brings down your guard, allowing for more guileless times. You see how every move you make needn’t have a lucrative or seductive pay off. You can act without expectation. There may be reunions with those you consigned to the past. Reminiscing is healthy but nostalgia can get noxious. You will also emotionally reconnect with old goals that still burn in you. Any pangs you now feel are the release of old pains, which paves a pathway to a viable, joyful future. The Blue Moon early Friday rekindles home fires.

Sagittarius

You can’t help micro-managing, with Mercury trine Uranus. You’ve evolved the ability to administer to every detail, systemizing all in sight, with a calm finesse. You’re also being given “cosmic do-overs” in the form of familiar experiences from the past that didn’t quite gel. This should make you more chill, less judgmental, totes patient and not the least bit power hungry. You can now raise the bar in friendships, expecting more from cronies. You are, after all, a great source of solace for others. Satisfying a craving for intimacy requires revealing more of your self. Friday’s Blue Moon reveals crucial information.

Capricorn

The Sun and Mars trine Saturn aligns your goal-setting strategies with your ultimate aspirations. You may now lay out practical plans to realize the most elaborate pipe dreams. Family and friendly connections are only icing. You create your own cakey opportunities by honing skills and talents you may take for granted. You can learn to love the process of becoming what you’ve been in such a rush to be. This way, real magic finds its way into the mix. Patience is a solid investment in your future. Still, momentum is key, so make small moves, daily. The Blue Moon early Friday shows you the money.

Aquarius

Leading to the Blue Moon in Aquarius after midnight, Thursday, you’re increasingly chill and magnanimous in dealings, letting go of tired grudges. Mercury trine Uranus helps bury hatchets dating back to the last century. Strained relationships have drained a lot of energy, which can now be channeled into promising new bonds. You’re being offered the role of a lifetime—that of the bigger person—a part you can play to the hilt. And hear that? It’s the sound of squeaky clean karma. The one most in need of your forgiveness right now is you. By Friday, the Blue Moon will have helped you achieve true closure.

Pisces

With Venus now retrograde, the walls you’ve put up with folks are torn down. You will still need to filter out the overly needy cling-ons with their drastic drama; but you can open yourself up to more divine inspiration and a certain joie de vivre. Let others buzz or flail around, while you stay the course, centered, sacrificing fleeting pleasures. A new, meditative stillness gives you the edge with deadlines as it attracts fellow tribe members who seek a self-contained partner or, even, a sometime plaything. Friday’s Blue Moon imparts an irrefutable sense that you’re not alone, but spiritually guided by benign beings.

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 outdoorsyness 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 rattyness 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

Mercury transiting the Sun, in Leo, spells some heavy emotional lifting in the midst of mounting joy. You’re being readied to face the fact: you’re a true creative. You may even forgo so-called bread-and-butter jobs that bind (they may only provide a semblance of security). There is much power now in saying No and going for broke with your dreams. Mars opposed Pluto points to a tired situation that needs to fall away, so that you can experience spiritual rebirth. Take kicks in the seat in stride—they only impel you forward.

Taurus

Venus and Jupiter squaring Saturn lets the steam out of the ways you take yourself too seriously. You can now drop pretenses and relate to people, more seamlessly. Rid yourself of puffery and name-dropping. You needn’t cite your connections—instead, make new ones. Smarmy wheeling and dealing is see-through. And good thing: You shouldn’t mask killer instincts and natural ease in negotiations. They win you respect, inviting opportunity from like-minds who value such assets. Be fierce and the rest follows.

Gemini

Venus trine Uranus urges you to consider the lilies. You’ve free license to let personal transformation be a simple process of unfolding from within. Keep farthest-reaching goals in mind, without limiting thoughts. Strike negative contractions from your vocabulary. Get a fix on desires—the wilder the better. Now is about letting highest aspirations soar so they might land and take root in the future. Believe without seeing! Loosen those purse strings to acquire requisite props that help prepare you for your good.

Cancer

You’re cleaning out literal and figurative closets, as Mercury transits the Sun, in Leo. You might upgrade your digs with some overdue mod cons, embracing a more minimal aesthetic to maximize mental clarity. Overall, you’re super energized. Once vague, pale interests become solid platforms for reaching loftiest goals. People either celebrate or tolerate you. Embrace the former, circular-file the latter. A spare social life fuels your professional one. You now consist of radical moves, resonant notions and raw nerve.

Leo

The trick now is to isolate areas where you lack know-how, so to make yourself more indispensable. This is key in both career and creative endeavors, and in fusing the two. Mars opposed Pluto turns chores into choices, and dull routines into powerful rituals. You’re being rebooted and, indeed, repackaged on an unseen, alchemical level, emerging as a more accessible you; but fret not: You’ll still be blissfully unbeholden to others. Only now, your solo goals will positively impact them. Spending splurges while passion surges.

Virgo

If you feel at the mercy of others’ whims, don’t sweat it: You’re being challenged to build emotional muscle, courtesy of Venus and Jupiter squaring Saturn. Not only can you take it, you don’t even need to dish it out. This Teflon mojo sets you apart from those who can’t as easily transcend fraught or frazzled situations. And then there’s you: silently assuming positions of leadership, quietly showing quitters the door. And that’s just on the domestic front. In business: detractors fade away like the morning dew, as devotees genuflect.

Libra

Expect caveats and corrections to abound with Mercury transiting the Sun. Being bombarded with ever-changing moods and (dis)information, you may rework plans multiple times. Even quasi ordered chaos can make you feel more vulnerable than usual. You’re inspired to cultivate calm despite—indeed due to—lack of control. If you ace this test, you’ll be in good stead for ages. Nature thrills far more than social enclaves with interior intrigue. Others’ hubric power plays are no match for your seasoned, insouciant kindness.

Scorpio

Life is in the details, as the week kicks off with the Moon opposed Neptune, a planet that can make you forget this fact! All the more reason to focus. You’ve a chance to cook up bigger successes than ever to date. Some say you’re too big for your britches. Never mind. Keep on trucking and carry on repeating: Nothing is personal. Keep a tight rein on spending and make no grand gestures picking up tabs or tricks. With Mercury transiting the Sun, you’ve nothing to prove, and no one to impress. Confidence is confiding in yourself.

Sagittarius

Jupiter and Venus square Saturn sees you’re afforded proper respect; and that the overly pretentious out there are firmly put in their place. You may be called self-serving. That’s half true. And it’s enough for you to know how generous you are. Don’t dignify disses by justifying yourself. On another note: You demand tangible proof that your powers of attraction are at their peak. You’re ultra-serious, now, in love. Commitment seekers sigh relief. Those dodging it will be shown the door. You’re running a tighter emotional ship.

Capricorn

With the Moon opposing Neptune at week’s start, the world seems your oyster. But don’t cast your pearls therein. Some people may be edited from your social roster as they don’t meet friend-ly requirements. Now is about defining belief systems and being steadfast in your ethics. Venus square Saturn points to big decisions and possible exits to make, on principle. And you’ve no bandwidth to navigate others’ moral compasses that clash with your own. Quietly voice hopes and wishes to Ms. Universe. She will answer all prayers.

Aquarius

With the Moon opposing Neptune at the top of the week, you’re asked to sure up all the places in your life where you’re lackadaisical or rest on laurels. Now is about true artistry and innovation, so strap on a pair of, let’s say, metaphorical spurs and pioneer! Affections are called into question. Focus more on giving love than where you don’t get it. If this proves too challenging, you may be barking up the wrong relationship tree. Uranus trine Venus also suggests you’re looking for a new squeeze or to shake it up with a main one.

Pisces

Neptune opposed the Moon at week’s start provides wiggle room with looming deadlines. Creativity flows and words fall trippingly, so don’t waste the grace of time and space. Press your button nose firmly to the grindstone. And be ready to field monkey wrenches being launched from left field. We thrill to see how you cope with the unexpected. And it isn’t just we watching. Would-be emotional, if not flushy financial, investors are also eyeing you. If you’ll just be yourself, no matter how glaring the attention, you will rule.

Sextrology, the e-version: finally, an edition your friends can't steal.

Sextrology, the e-version: finally, an edition your friends can’t steal.

Cancer woman’s life journey can be characterized as one long transition from the seeming chaos of her youth toward achievement of her own natural rhythm. Long before Linda Ronstadt marched to the beat of a different drum, Cancer girls have often felt emotionally abandoned at a tender age, echoed in some form of their own self-abandon. It takes time’s ticking tides to emotionally process Cancer woman’s way to a calmer shore—flood myths are 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 there from; 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 secure 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, at some point or other, might have been a bit upset and needed to lie down.

Aries

A New Moon conjuncts the Sun, which now conjuncts Mars and Mercury, all opposing Pluto. This gets Aries’ creative and libidinous juices flowing. You’re courting Muses, of both the etheric and the downright financial kinds. Just remember: the patronizing can be patronizing. The key to success in love or art now entails a return to roots and innocence. Isolate mean, jaded feelings and shake them out. Eschew sophisticated milieu, if need be, embracing nature and certain naiveté. Heel any temptations to character assassinate.

Taurus

You best satisfy any excitement addiction by sticking to routines, says Venus and Jupiter square Saturn. Turn chores into magic rituals designed to empower you. The New Moon overnight Wednesday, sees you not so much raging against establishment machinery as releasing any holds one might have on you. As the dramedy unfolds on the career and social fronts, eye situations with bemused detachment. Be optimistic, in the truest sense: you create your own good fortune by optimizing opportunity, dignifying no detractions.

Gemini

You inspire confidence if not a few green shades of envy on the career front. Mercury transits Mars on Wednesday’s New Moon, bidding you to stop and smell the milestones before stretching for the next brass ring. You can go to extremes, undervaluing, then splurging on celebrations of, self. Stay middle-grounded. Highs and lows are equally dicey, where emotions are concerned. External circumstance should have no bearing on your weather within, which is partly sunny with a good chance of thunderous applause.

Cancer

Your senses are working overtime, in advance of Wednesday’s New Moon, but it’s a good antidote for too much living in your head. The Mars-Sun-Mercury conjunct says listen to your body. You may be overdoing even exercise regimes; you may need to rest more, or to delight your appetites some. Strike the word should from your vocabulary just now. Leave open-ended hours for wandering off and just seeing what happens. Embrace that which provides natural stimulation. Venus conjunct Jupiter invites all sorts of admiration.

Leo

Those who’ve invested hope or hard cash in your promise(s) now expect you to deliver said goods. This could be a challenge, says Mercury transit Mars conjunct the Sun. Not playing victim in the process could be a second one. You are reminded that your opinion of others is none of their beeswax. Telegraphing petty disappointments doesn’t puff up your status, it makes it go poof. Embody your golden-ruling codes of ethics and make good on all favors and faith afforded you. Give people slack and you’ll have them in your palm.

Virgo

Serious introspection is now key to isolating and ultimately curtailing excesses. Prior to Wednesday’s New Moon, it’s pretty existential—hell can be others—isolation providing a salve for external stresses. But as Venus enters Virgo it becomes increasingly evident: the real distress call is coming from inside the house (your psyche). Unlike like-realizations of the past, this one inspires resolve not dread. You’re ready to swallow bitter pills and spill your guts instead of cocktails or metaphorical milk over which you’ve cried enough.

Libra

Your ability to score solo goals is to be commended as Mercury transits Mars; while Venus conjunct Jupiter urges you to take others’ counsel to heart. You’ve been called many things; we now add wing wo/man to the list. Co-authoring a project, even playing second fiddle, is not only a preferable paradigm for winning praise and making bank, it also provides opportunity to enjoy the benefits of a type-B personality: A steady pulse, listening skills, plump skin, a cool remove, empathy, sheet wrinkles and eye twinkles.

Scorpio

A New Moon with the Sun conjunct Mars and Mercury, all opposed Pluto means you now come clean, emotionally. Admit your part in unraveling relationships, recognizing any repetitive patterns you fall into. There is air enough to suck in every room, and room enough at the top, for everyone. Nobody can take away anything that truly belongs to you. Your one job is to be yourself. Focus on solo achievement sans thought of providing for or impressing others. If unintentionally, others can put a damper on your dreams.

Sagittarius

You now alight on life-alterations needing making. With Wednesday’s New Moon, you consider a need for specificity in career. Are you clear or wavering on your expectations of current employ and/or can you specialize more? You must distinctly articulate desired paths, in all things, so that the universe, let alone bosses or sponsors, can meet you half way. Balance in your bonds also comes to bear. Control needs to give way to acceptance.
Mercury’s transit of Mars gives voice to both petty pet peeves and profound life purpose.

Capricorn

You’re all intuition and insight with the New Moon, Sun, Mars and Mercury in stellium. You soak up local color, new experience and out-of-left-field opportunities like a sponge. Bide your time, weigh all options and reveal little, wearing a poker face. Others confess secrets to you, but don’t take anyone’s words as gospel. Trust you know when someone is hiding truths or purposely feeding you falsehoods. Money-wise: Expect the best, but err on frugality nonetheless. Practical magic nips stress in the bud. In love, you bear your soul.

Aquarius

Guilty pleasures tempt, but you’re apt to trip on the G-word. Mercury transiting Mars illustrates how self-punishment is your vice. Meanwhile, your drug of choice should be the adrenalin of creative output. Pluto opposing Sun and New Moon spotlights subversive motivations—yours and others’. Be forthright in dealings. Failure to do so suggests fear, better known as a dearth of faith. An anxious vision can be a self-fulfilling prophecy. So pull out all stops in showing you’re sanguine. Snubbing others is pitiful not powerful.

Pisces

Mercury transiting Mars, conjunct the Sun and New Moon, all trining Neptune (phew) gets to the bottom of nagging issues. Emotional fatigue manifests physically, so meditate on any weariness, aches and twinges and see them as the release not the source of what ails you. Even sorrow is a symptom of healing, as old scars are being erased. Adopt a high-vibe diet of positivity and a mystic fitness practice of compassionate acts. Pretend you’ve been secretly cast in a reality show about a modern day saint. It’s not far from the truth.

week of July 5-July 11 2015

Whether or not you believe we actually went to the Moon, the fact remains that Cancer men often do end up looking a lot like the Man in it. You decide whether or not he might also be described as cheesy. Behold the bald and the beautiful Cancerian males who glow with a kindly condescension, a subtle superiority and a distant devotion. And beware the chrome-dome glare: Patrick Stewart, John Glenn, Yul Brynner, Jeffrey Tambor, Terrence Stamp, 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, Dalai Lama, Anthony Edwards, Jackie Earle Haley, Dan Aykroyd, David Drake, Prince William and all the future folically challenged Cancerian fellows.

You’re delivered from outmoded, limiting thoughts by the Sun and Mars trining Neptune. Long-suffering projects need your all to bring them home. Then clear the decks for drafting new plans percolating on your brain’s back burner. You may be offered a lead role of some kind. Being in charge isn’t a burning passion now, but it may be a necessity in achieving desired results. Venus and Jupiter trine Uranus can spark an epiphany: You see how expecting the best puts you in the right frame of mind, regardless of any result.

Taurus

Put focus squarely on you: Mercury conjunct Mars points to a process of individuation. Aiming to please colleagues, clients or cronies gets you nowhere fast. You may be singled out for a new project or opportunity. Surely, you are distinguishing yourself from the pack. You may feel angst in group settings—lest you’re being hailed as a leader, expert or guru, it’s best to eschew them. You strike out in a solo direction. A lone effort tugging at your psyche is to be pursued. In love, too, you prove you can stand alone.

Gemini

As Venus and Jupiter T-square Moon and Saturn, you undergo an alchemical shift, becoming more golden a child and getting the lead out in harkening to true callings. There may be temptation to relive hedonistic ways. It’s only a test. You haven’t brought your A-game only to backslide at this tipping point. Self-actualization is designed to impress nobody but you. Remember: giving into fleeting pleasures might only postpone lasting joy. Think beyond yourself—getting to a place where you have so much to give.

Cancer

You’re tempted to go into hiding, with Mars and Sun trining Neptune; but please trust that networking is now crucial. Avoid isolation at all costs; and perish the thought that involving others in your plans dilutes the energy thereof. It actually expands your reach along a web of your own weaving. To be fair, you haven’t exactly been alone, but relying on the kindness of strangers, keeping said connections under wraps. Yet, you now step into the light with all activities. Champions for burning causes are closer than you think.

Leo

In anticipation of a Mars/Sun-Neptune/Moon trine, which amps your empathetic power, you needn’t fear being entangled in clingy alliances. Your compassion for others is truly detached. As a result of being burned by some jealous dementors of late, you’re right not to invite input on projects or share plans. Mercury in Cancer frees you to bond with fresh faces who see the truest you: a caring character with a cool remove. A once and future friend may extend an olive branch this week; still, it’s okay if you’re not ready to engage.

Virgo

Sun and Mars opposed Pluto provides impetus to convey views and feelings creatively, while making you aware of skills and talents that need developing to do exactly that. You see your artistic potential in isolating any obstacles to it. The primary one being the limitations of your own thinking. Even if your art is commerce, take heed: Breaking the rules is making new ones. Don’t edit yourself. Express yourself now in bold strokes; you can always go back and fine tune later. And better to ask forgiveness than permission.

Libra

With Saturn square Venus and Jupiter, you exude confidence and renewed authority. You may experience a role swap that puts you in charge of those you’ve followed in the past; while people doing your bidding may need a reminder of the fact. It is key to put any resentments aside. Strike the word revenge from your dictionary. So-called rivals may become lieutenants who carry out your edicts in exchange for your championing their causes. Being in command means delegating liberally, empowering those under your wing.

Scorpio

The Sun and Mars trining Moon and Neptune can make it seem you’re surrounded by beneficent fairies. Indeed, unseen forces do show up to assist you. Life is breathed into your goodly actions, particularly those of a community nature. You divorce yourself from the so-called influential to whose bad behavior you’ve heretofore turned a blind eye, giving praise to those you’ve under-appreciated. You feel the power in wanting what you already have, needing nada from empty promisors. You won’t feel lonely going it alone.

Sagittarius

Karma is creeping up on you, which, for most Sadges is a good thing. Mars and Sun opposing Pluto exposes your hypocrisies so that they can be eradicated. There seems to be a disconnect between your professional and private selves. Visualize them coming together. You possess great wisdom, yet forgiveness can be a stumbling block. Beware of scapegoating others for your losing affection for them. Nobody is dictating the company you must keep, so you needn’t fabricate reasons to blame people for cooling on them.

Capricorn

With Saturn squaring Jupiter and Venus you find pleasure in kicking nasty habits and shifting wellness routines into high gear. Ask yourself what situations or relationships most call for some correction. Stick to a sanguine tribe and steer clear of pity partiers, lest you find yourself one of them. Invest energy in areas of interest where it will do the most good for you and others. A tumultuous emotional past has wrought pearls of wisdom in you. The trick is not to cast them before swindlers of your precious time and energy.

Aquarius

Snafus and setbacks are blessings in disguise, keeping you from multi-tasking your way into full neuron fritz-out. Venus and Jupiter trine Uranus sees group dynamics reach an apex. Making an exit strategy is wise, not a sign of weakness. Whatever you’re doing: If it feels like work, it’s not working. Yours should be a path of no resistance, now. It’s time to focus on solo ambitions, integrating art and commerce. Beware of overindulging to ease any pain. Overpopulating your surroundings can, ironically, make you feel lonelier.

Pisces

With the Sun and Mars trining the Moon and Neptune, your approach is direct, your actions impulsive and your love tough. Expect a shake-out on the career front as you wax brutally honest. You’re now a wide open book, expecting others to follow suit. You may go out on a limb, socially; and there’s zero wrong with running with a so-called faster crowd, so long as it’s actually going places. Rub elbows with progressive mover-shakers like yourself—don’t hang back with the brutes. You bruise easily, but recover in a jiffy.

Cry us a river: 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 Phoebe and Selene are one with their emotions, which can make them wildly chaotic or oh-so touchingly histrionic—we’ll get to a list of extreme cases in the coming weeks. Little wonder they make the most emotionally accessible actresses. We cite the character of Cinderella as one of the Cancer woman archetypes. Like Cindy, Cancer lady is equal parts lamenting and hopeful, mirroring the expressions of the waxing and waning Moon. Indeed, she employs the power of wish-craft, floating her 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 and rats, which are nocturnal. 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 white Cooper 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, Elizabeth McGovern, Meryl Streep, Princess Diana, Sandra Oh, Judy Greer, Melissa Rauch, Edie Falco, Stephanie Seymour, Selena Gomez, Linda Ronstadt, Ginger Rogers, Eva Marie Saint, Diana Rigg, Janet Leigh, Olivia De Havilland. Boo hoo.

Aries

The atmosphere buzzes with excitement; still, until Wednesday’s Full Moon, remain trance-like, lest nerves get frayed. With Sun and Mars trine Neptune, you long for a lush, sensual life, craving more texture in your career and luxury in your social fabric. Those you seek to sway hardly notice curling up in the palm of your hand. All the more reason to be a hard nut, sticking to ethics and principles. Summon surplus backbone to slap down bullies preying on the meek. You needn’t get the last word, but you will have final say.

Taurus

Nigh on Wednesday’s Full Moon keep expectations low with intimates. Otherwise, feelings you wear on your sleeve might get sullied. It’s time to cut losses with the dysfunctional, unless your ego relies on others’ co-dependence? A new daily routine designed to cultivate serenity emerges by Friday. Follow up on all ideas and introductions you initiated. Others disappoint only if you let them. Current devotees offering love and support deserve your focus way more than any withholders you keep trying to win over.

Gemini

You take up more real and metaphoric space now, with Mercury square Chiron; good news after being jostled by a shifting social or career landscape. By the Full Moon, Wednesday, you’re back in the saddle, biz-wise, and in the know, buzz-wise. You realize your wildest dreams are ones most destined for success. So you can cut ties that bind you to those who, if only subconsciously, try to keep a lid on your rising star. Be gleefully on the make for those who may invest in any light bulbs popping off in your beautiful mind.

Cancer

It wasn’t so long ago that you petitioned the heavens for increased creative opportunity—fist shaking to the magestical roof. And as Mars and Sun trine Neptune for the Full Moon mid-week, here it comes. So don’t claim you’re not ready. Crank up the can-do machinery and shift imagination into action. Humility is one thing, but self-sabotage from a fear of success is another. Life unfolds according to your intentions. Believe fully in yourself then match behavior to your belief. So-called selfish goals have wider, universal benefit.

Leo

The Sun-Mars conjunct puts you on the receiving end of some tough love over the Full Moon, Wednesday; but try to see it as deepening your compassion. That adorable way you see yourself as gods’ gift to the universe: though it’s totally true, you now see how everyone else is, too. You are to be praised for sacrifices made to those you deem less fortunate; yet being messianic makes you spiritually messy. This is your cue to spiff up your act and not judge others. And don’t forget: there is no such thing as giving enough.

Virgo

If at your wits’ end, hang in there—it’s a test of faith. As Mercury squares Neptune, you receive forgiveness from those you may’ve inadvertently crossed. You also get work reprieves from projects in difficulty or facing looming deadlines. With Wednesday’s Full Moon, you may be singled out for a promotion, payoff or perk. And don’t turn up your nose at what might seem a lateral move. It is actually a distinctly diagonal, steep, upward-spiral rise! Though you may be in sparkling new company, don’t fair-weather old friends.

Libra

Prior to Wednesday’s Full Moon, pushing too hard for desired outcomes is a sure way to see them slip through your fingers. Saturn unaspected causes shifts in status between you and partners in love or business. Embrace authority without necessarily wielding it. Let self-professed rivals make vivid power plays—they’ll likely overshoot their marks. You win now by making minor concessions and meager demands. The trick is to master your defensive emotions. It’s how you’ll magnetize desired outcomes and love objects to you.

Scorpio

You gain insight into group, social psychology as Mars conjuncts the Sun squaring Pluto. You further hone intuition and expression during the Full Moon mid-week—projects that require tapping into the collective consciousness are green lighted. While surfing the zeitgeist, close bonds may get short shrift. So let loved ones know if you’re heading down any rabbit holes. Don’t overpromise then disappoint. Some talents may be rusty, and credos dusty, but in this time of personal renaissance you come up with requisite goods.

Sagittarius

With Venus conjunct Jupiter trine Uranus you form a united front at home and at work, warding off hostile takeovers, family invasions, alien visitations and psychic possessions. There will be veiled finger-pointing. Try tabling internal conflicts until after Wednesday’s Full Moon when they no longer signify. And, as you wax more proactive in business, let your guard down in private. Stick to convictions, if unpopular. Don’t anesthetize vacant feelings. It can be lonely out on a limb, but it’s where juicy fruits of your labor are ripest.

Capricorn

Waxing to Wednesday’s Full Capricorn Moon, focus on zeroing in on super niche ways to channel creativity. Saturn unaspected allows you to feel the thrill of success as you hit myriad marks, acting as a most divine messenger of delicious ideas. Aim to find the finest line between loyalty and codependence. Your higher mind embraces complex and esoteric ideology with your signature devotion. Your mind is exercised as your spirit is exorcised of any demon need to be all things to all people. You’re best at being an icon.

Aquarius

A long-pursued goal is now within reach; so says Uranus trining Jupiter and Venus. While you’re winning the day, don’t forget: this is just one step in a series of triumphs you’ve yet to achieve. Mustn’t rest on laurels—redouble your efforts. And avoid gambles with Wednesday’s Full Moon. You best employ restraint and impose limits on indulging any cloying need for fortune. If a prize is yours, it will be had on noblest terms. An ardent admirer makes their self known, so look alive. Release placeholder people from your life.

Pisces

Put first things first: that means callings and whatever engages your imagination. Any to-do lists will keep till after Wednesday’s Full Moon. Even so, you must stay busy, worky stuff on the back-burner, front-loading activities that feed your dreams. If your environment is messy you might see it as in process, a fluffy nest for hatching ideas and manifesting artistry. Prioritize content over form. Neptune trine Sun and Mars sees you identify as a creative—the more you follow your impressions, the more impressive you are.

by Starsky + Cox

The sign of Cancer is ruled by Mother Moon and it governs the fourth astrological house of, among other things, the female population. Cancer embraces 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 Ernest Hemingway’s Jake Barnes is drawn in by the stronger female force of Brett Ashley. It’s likewise 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, Prince William.

Aries

Happy Solstice! Shared resources are lighting up as a result of Venus conjunct Jupiter. Your purse is poised to be filled by patrons, while you are also in a position to invest in others’ projects, despite expectation of payoffs. The Sun-Mars conjunct says: do your homework—don’t take on face value what others are peddling. Focus is on collaboration, not always your strong suit; and you may be put in charge of those who once bossed you. It’s an emotionally twisty time, but you’re up to the challenge, exceeding expectations. Are you in NYC tonight, June 21? We are STARRING live at Joe’s Pub @ The Public.

Taurus

With the start of Summer, the Sun entering Cancer, consider the paradoxes of the road less taken versus the path of least resistance. Virgin territory mightn’t entail a dreadful journey, while a well worn trail can easily be pitted with people’s negative experiences, wearing on, and tearing at, your singular objectives. You understand the fact we’re recommending the former track, right? Moon opposing Neptune, Tuesday, brings an emotional breakthrough. It’s time to (re)commit to pursuits and practices that impart pure lasting joy. On that note, see us STARRING in NYC 6/21 at Joe’s Pub @ The Public.

Gemini

Life is full of choices that need making in regard to change in career, address, social circles or causes to take up. Jupiter and Venus trine Uranus suggests you try on as many new scenarios as you can, without necessarily committing to any. So called shake-ups in routine offer exciting glimpses into a sustainable new lifestyle. So, don’t fight set-backs; embrace and move through them, as they lead to a new happy place. If you get lost in complaint, you won’t smell the magic for all the manure. Expect a romantic declaration.It could happen 6/21 on Solstice at Joe’s Pub @ The Public where we are STARRING.

Cancer

There’s no need to explain to fair-weather friends why it is you’re moving on. They may label this social climbing. We call it ascension. The Sun entering your sign today imparts devil-may-care license to reach out and touch whomever you like, providing entrée to any enclave you crave. Accept a leadership role on a committee or for an event, especially if it promises empowerment through knowledge. Passing on, or shirking, duties can see your reputation suffer. Moon opposing Neptune, Monday, puts your mood at odds with imagination. Let’s work it all out tonight, 6/21: STARRING at Joe’s Pub @ The Public.

Leo

You feel things, deeply; sensing events, with near animal instinct, before they happen, virtue of the Moon opposing Neptune with Sun conjunct Mars. If you’re in the biz of gauging trends, or wishing to sell high what you suspect will soon dip in value, trust your gut. You’re itching for experience, and a partnership may be holding you back. In love, you feel a disconnect between liberated notions and an urge to cling. The aim is to get your radical consciousness and conservative conscience to work more fully in concert. Speaking of concerts: See us this Solstice night STARRING at Joe’s Pub @ The Public.

Virgo

There may be a tendency to spin your wheels. As the Sun falls into opposition with Pluto, you can all too easily indulge in self-created drama, playing stressed out and put upon. Try to see this as a subconscious plot to maintain the status quo. You may fear change and time passing and certain grim reaping. But you may also be holding others hostage, thwarting their growth along with your own, in projecting your fears onto them. There’s no real crisis here—just human challenges to meet with a dignified indifference. Chin up and come and see us on 6/21, STARRING at Joe’s Pub @ The Public Theater.

Libra

The Solstice finds you probing situations for hidden agendas and caveats. You sense there is opportunity cloaked in invisibility. And know-how being power, you need full intel to make all the right moves. With the Sun opposing Pluto, it’s time, too, to turn your investigative gaze inward, getting a handle on your own over-reactionary impulses. Ever wonder why so-called friends and loved ones press your buttons? Because they can. But you’re nobody’s emo-puppet. Venus conjunct Jupiter amps a healthful self-servingness. We’ll jumpstart you this Solstice, 6/21, in NYC: STARRING at Joe’s Pub @ The Public.

Scorpio

Mars conjunct the Sun removes last vestiges of doubt in making any exits, allowing you to focus more on the excitement of embarking on new adventures. Still, you can get a bit neurotic, if not compulsive. If-then thinking is a trap to sidestep. You find comfort and, yes, happiness in accepting the way things are, instead of relegating joy to a future dependent on there being ducks in a row. And avoid quacky self-help. Your mind may play tricks, but your emotions never lie. Saturn unaspected says be less hard on yourself. Let us put a Solstice smile on your face, 6/21: STARRING at Joe’s Pub @ The Public.

Sagittarius

The Sun-Mars conjunct, plus that of Jupiter-Venus, may augment your sexy libido to outsize proportions; while also, more sublimely, rebooting your psyche. Deep-seated issues will no longer weigh on you. Free to dive deeper into the primordial soup, you face certain truths you feared would one day undo you. You unearth memories and stories that are ripe for expression; and as you delve more internally, you glide more gracefully on the surface. Let’s recap: Profound connection with self; casual interactions with others. Are you in a NY state of mind to see us 6/21 STARRING at Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater?

Capricorn

You express creativity in a unique fashion. You could elevate paint-by-numbers or string art to a MoMA level. This Mars-fueled Solstice sees you raise high that which is deemed low, discarded, or on the fringes—making the ordinary extraordinary by simple virtue of framing it as such. Does this mean so-called banal existence can be beatific? You bet your sweet bippy it does. Confidence is confiding in yourself. Here’s a self-secret for you: Life is magic and you can work it. Saturn unaspected asks you to discipline yourself to have fun. Like, if you’re in NYC 6/21, see us STARRING at Joe’s Pub @ The Public.

Aquarius

As the Sun, conjunct Mars, slides into opposition with Pluto, you must stop, drop and roll with the punches. Tough-love lessons abound; and those whose affections you took for granted may invest it elsewhere—it’s what you wanted, no? A seemingly waning interest in your business wares can bruise your ego. Appreciate what compliments are on offer. Let people break out of assigned roles. Take up challenges and embrace change to avoid petrification. Allow others’ successes to inspire you, not wake that green-eyed monster. In NYC 6/21? We will sort you out for the Solstice, STARRING at Joe’s Pub @ The Public.

Pisces

Your love life may get tricky with Mars conjunct Sun and Venus conjunct Pluto. Or is that Bob conjunct Carol and Ted conjunct Alice? Beware of turning a would-be affair into a cozy slice of camaraderie, drained of all juice; and vice versa. A Moon-Neptune opposition says to remain romantically aspirational, indulging fantasies in the process. Be mindful not to project familiar dynamics from your upbringing onto intimate bonds: a mate’s not your remote father or smothering mother. S/he’ s a minefield all her own. Maybe you’ll meet someone new while seeing us 6/21: STARRING at Joe’s Pub @ The Public.

Gossip, girl: Gemini gamines can gab and babble like birds on a wire. The mutable air sign of Gemini is concerned with 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 incite 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 of 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 women 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.

Aries

With the New Moon, conjunct the Sun and Mars, Tuesday, you’ll notice how physical ailments vary according to your emotional state. It’s a challenge to still your mind and avoid situations and individuals that rattle your cage. But you must put well-being first, if not be a vigilante for the greatest love of all—yes: you. Pushing your limits once assured your survival—no longer doing so is now tantamount to thrivation. When we say it’s play time, we don’t mean it frivolously. Set your inner child free from sophisticated restraints.

Taurus

Current trends can run counter to your creative vision; the challenge of the New Moon in a huddle with the Sun and Mars: to cope with feeling your ideas are yesterday’s smashed potatoes. Go with it, seizing moments to fall under the radar to hatch new artistic plans or intellectual property. You bemoan you’ve little time to brainstorm. So here it is. Take advantage, digging deeper into your singular aesthetic or ideology to come up with fresh projects, products or pearls of wisdom others will—it’s just a matter of time—buy into.

Gemini

A stellium of Sun, Mars and the New Moon can make you preggers with possibility, readying to birth a brood of brainchildren. Keep pad, paper or voice-device handy as misty visions, born from your imagination, take form. Clear the decks for a prolific time, avoiding the kind of energy zapping that comes from cutting loose, acting up or out, or sowing oats no longer wild. Between pushing out a plethora of project ideas, some to do now, some later: rest, stretch, breathe, hydrate, and you don’t have to put on that red light.

Cancer

Ho-hum routines and self-denial are replaced by a spate of extraordinary opportunity and increased abundance as Venus pairs up with Jupiter. Pencil in brainstorming sessions and fantasy dates with mover-shakers, scratching off your calendar any bleak tasks and dull play dates. Planet moves also reset relationships. It may seem to some folks like you’re dumping them for a new social climb; while, really, you’re aligning with like-minds whose stellar trajectories parallel your own. Tuesday’s New Moon signals a reinvention.

Leo

Saturn retrograding into Scorpio prescribes embracing traditional methods to give efforts a hands-on, if not home-made feel. Meanwhile, long-range goals of pet projects should be radically progressive. You may attend a string of annual doings; and socializing can feel mechanized. Allow this to urge you toward more personal investment in a new circle of should-be friends. A recent event that promised notoriety will have tanked, but hold that thought: You’ll be ready for your close-up when you’re not so eager for the limelight.

Virgo

Of late, you’ve played the infamous wo/man behind the curtain; but now, with the New Moon conjunct Mars and the Sun, all eyes are on you. Tidbits, or the full monty, of your life story fare well in a retelling. You may find there is gold in them thar true tales. Still, take poetic license as there is a transcendent truth in the revision. Just don’t overdo it. A dash of fiction goes a long way to satisfy others’ hunger for wise words mined from your real experience. A rivalry can rear its ugly head—it won’t signify if you don’t entertain it.

Libra

As Venus sidles up to Jupiter, the slate is wiped clean of drama and you can move on from tired situations. Just make sure to resist any urges to mop the floor with people on your way out. And avoid sweeping resolutions—get facts and figures straight before making iron-clad decisions. Success stems from letting, not making, things happen. Trouble derives from failing to do so. Power lies in not reacting to others’ actions—but do take note of serial shadiness. If you act as if sleazy antics are beneath you, they will be.

Scorpio

You avoid a probe, or punishment, for recent misdeeds, as would-be challengers turn a blind eye to recent questionable behavior. At least, for now. Mars and Sun conjunct the New Moon initiates a period of transparency, exposing the dark side of your illuminating Scorpion mojo. Others see you’re not all sweetness and light—duh—while those who’ve labeled you a lightweight receive a major revelation. And you learn a lesson: You can’t blame others’ responses to your actions as the cause of any problem: they’re the symptom.

Sagittarius

You fire on all cylinders, as Jupiter links up with Venus and the Moon. This brings the realization that life isn’t about getting by or away with things. It’s hinged on making the next right decision. From what you eat to what you say to the next career path you take, all your choices literally matter. You’ll be pleased to know you’re a vehicle for positive change. Your internal transformation notwithstanding, transforming the world around you for a common good, not your personal own, is a recipe for what we call sustainable joy.

Capricorn

Planet moves help put the past behind you. As Saturn retro-glides into Scorpio, riddance becomes your watchword: whether you’re selling, storing, scorching, or sidelining people, places and things that no longer serve. A stellium of the Sun, Mars and New Moon sees you streamlining operations. Aesthetically, you embrace a utility that promises peace not impersonality. Though you do realize that nothing is personal—nor should it be—you forgo favors lest you relearn life lessons about strings being attached.

Aquarius

You find your voice in family and/or community concerns, expressing a collective agenda to proverbial powers that be. Ah, but you still have trepidation. And maybe it’s ego-driven: Are you looking for kudos for so-called selfless actions? Saturn backing into Scorpio sees you shifting from hubris to humility. Ironically, you garner more praise the less you court it. And what’s that woeful feeling, you wonder: Maybe you regret being a fair-weather friend to one who was true? It’s not too late to be the best friend you can be.

Pisces

Though you see signs of bounty, we caution against consumerist splurges. With the New Moon conjunct the Sun and Mars, you can tap into artistic and intellectual abundance, keeping any material waste in check. Setting budgetary limits, you create both a financial and an energetic reservoir that enables you to finish that next great American novel, ballet, pop song, theorem or whatever your equivalent might be. Life being paradoxical, with every show of restraint, you now expand all the more fully into reaching loftiest goals.

Haute Astrology Week of June 7-13 2015
by Starsky + Cox
authors of Sextrology: The Astrology of Sex and the Sexes

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 portrays 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 Geminis entering the zeitgeist at a tender age, playing at being adults while forever remaining something of a juvenile in their 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

By the time Mercury goes direct, Thursday, you’ll be embarking upon a new adventure. Mars conjunct the Sun, meanwhile, provides you freedom in letting go, coaxing you out of the bondage of so-called safety and security. Big plans have stealthily manifested as you’ve slowly detoxed, eradicating ancient fears that portray the shadow-side of the inherent active faith—do you need reminding?—you possess. Looking on the bright side, you now pick up clues to living life as you like it: as a present-minded treasure hunt.

Taurus

As Mercury goes direct by Thursday, you’re cultivating new bonds—every situation you touch now seems to turn to gold if not platinum. Innovative ideas plus an abiding optimism add up to making bank as well as strong social contributions. The Venus-Saturn trine provides social grace and professional poise, allowing you a light touch in dealings. You beat bouts of the blues by doing good deeds, caring less about impressing others and more about impressing upon them an imperative for increasingly conscious behavior.

Gemini

All means lead to the same end. With Mercury going direct by Thursday, there’s no need to fret over any particular path. So long as you follow your intuition and impressions, the road will rise to meet you. When it comes to well-trodden situations, or even people, you may need to leave them behind—so says Mars conjunct the Sun. If they’re not there when you “get back” they never were. But forge ahead and strut your literal or figurative stuff, putting a hefty price tag on skills and talents. Those who can’t afford you simply won’t.

Cancer

A Grand Trine of Sun, Moon and Venus makes for a fun, auspicious time. You now hone the execution of daily duties, and catch quite a buzz from doing your due diligence to conjure next big dreams into being. Feeling on top of the world, while making major waves in it, is the reward of many a moon working in the trenches to become this so-called overnight success. Who says you can’t break records, win medals, stage coups, swing deals and achieve certain enlightenment, all in one week? Certainly not us.

Leo

As Mercury goes direct, once again, life is sweet. Physical activities abound with the Sun conjunct Mars. Your default thinking is more sanguine, your mood less jaded and your daydreams more vividly adventurous, courtesy of Neptune retrograde. Artistic passions and pastimes beckon—indulging them allows your mind to wander and alight on making larger goals more niche. Dull routines rhythmically morph into rituals that empower and consecrate your experience, as bad habits and bonds are finally toe-tagged for extinction.

Virgo

As Mercury goes direct, by Thursday, it’s time to come clean. The thrill of cutting some people loose notwithstanding, Venus trine Saturn hits home the fact that feigning to suffer fools only serves selfish purposes. To avoid a karmic setback, give credit and, yes, compensation to those you may’ve used as crutches or stepping stones—signs show the revenge of humble nerds can be swift and mighty. Inner turmoil can no longer be blamed on others. Prepare to make amends, and any payment plans, to speed your cosmic trip!

Libra

Neptune retrogrades as Mercury goes direct, prescribing the deflecting of attention, if not the wearing of a cloak of invisibility. If someone brags about successes, acknowledge the fact—at least smile and nod. Do not try to one-up them. You’re urged to give thanks to those who’ve championed you—some of whom only seek some quality time together. Do good works to achieve your aims; and play it smart. If you wish to endear yourself to others for solo gain, then prepare for mutual back-scratching. This is a practical time.

Scorpio

You seek solace, with Venus trine Saturn. And you cultivate composure by employing few words and meeting myriad obligations with calculated calm. Mercury going direct, Thursday, helps you divine middle grounds, so you can mediate opposing factors with a cool head. You may even partake of earthly pleasures without overindulging in them. Mindfully put past emotional see-sawing behind you. In love bonds, you needn’t be so all-or-nothing—loved ones shouldn’t take responsibility for your every joy or woe.

Sagittarius

In advance of Mercury going direct, Thursday, underlying melancholy may motivate you to reunite with old chums and revisit creative projects you prematurely put out to pasture. Artistically, you could be in a blue period, but do let it be a celebrated one! You can’t turn back time, cherie, but you can pick up the threads and pull them through. You bring way more to the table now than when you first made a go at goals you then set aside. And if so-called people say you don’t seem like yourself, try to take it as a compliment. Okay?

Capricorn

As Mercury goes direct, by Thursday, you experience some epiphanies, like: Prizing certain people over others may’ve contributed to career paralysis or social petrification. The upshot is that: Any illusions about sham personalities you’ve plopped onto pedestals now shatter; and you connect the dots from your undue praise of such folk to the drain it’s had on your mojo. Still, don’t give shady peeps or their shenanigans any further thought. By keeping your own counsel now, you will regain any and all power and energy lost.

Aquarius

Even in advance of Mercury leaving retrograde on Thursday, life can feel like a sustained spate of synchronicity. So-called strange phenomena isn’t so odd, really. Once you get accustomed to it, you’ll see it as symptomatic of living a certain Truth: that just being alive is a miracle unto itself. In this state of mind slash grace, existence takes on the quality of unfolding according to your needs, not to be confused with your wants. And, to fully harness this lotus reveal, dedicate your actions to the merit of all sentient beings.

Pisces

Neptune retrogrades just as Mercury has gone direct. All told, your commercial viability is given a boost this week, as you’re urged to merge with a community of like minds. But resist impulses to codependently cling. Invoke the low of attraction, for love or money. Venus trine Saturn, too, allows you to clearly define goals that bring desired, not just any old people, places and perks to you. It’s time to self-examine, taking a good, long gander into the mirror. It’s why they call it reflection. A friend in need appreciates your reaching out.

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 Pollex 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; as is Nabokov’s Lolita who tempts duality incarnate Humbert Humbert. And you thought it was all just an accident that Gemini women seem a ripe combination of guilelessness and game. This gamine of the Zodiac does tend to be gorgeous enough to launch a thousand cosmetic campaigns; and while there is always some personal-fall sprinkled into the mix and often linked to her falling rather suddenly in love, but Gemini birds are set on a quicker speed. 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, Natalie Portman.

Aries

You’ve difficulty soft-pedaling telling others where to get off. With Neptune square Mars, Sun, and Mercury, you’re not so diplomatic setting boundaries, yet your brusque honesty is what others most like about you. Woe to those, though, who mistake your jovial kindness for weakness. When it comes to emotional muscle, you’re a Hulk, and you can be set off. Put anything non-priority on the back burner and devote to your passions. It may not feel you’re at an artistic milestone. But you are paving way for a creative future.

Taurus

If feeling spooked or overly superstitious, remember the only bogeyman is ill preparation. Slay nagging dread by knowing your shizzle down cold. Don’t lament all the loose ends in your wake—double-back and tie up the important ones. Venus square Uranus triggers unexpected realizations, like, your self-concern having had an alienating effect. Others try to get closer; and you’re hard-pressed to lay down your defenses to let them. This entails confronting lingering intimacy issues. Open all communication channels, there, Uhura.

Gemini

With Mercury retrograde, your words have wings now, they just flap more slowly. So whatever you say lingers in the air. Be careful not to drop any bombs or bits of gossip. If you do speak out-of-turn, a contrite admission will exonerate you. Miscommunications, still, are all too easy to perpetrate; so hold your tongue (if you can). To utter is human, to shut it, divine. Heads up: a financial opportunity may be riskier than it seems. Keep your lips and purse zipped for now, as biding time reveals who are the goodies and who are the baddies.

Cancer

With the Sagittarius Full Moon, you may already be pursuing intellectual, philosophical, even mystic study. If not, heed true callings now for higher knowledge; sniff around degree programs or other means of mastery. Some light research doesn’t preclude getting other shows on the road, as well—showcasing your talents and wares on an increasingly wider scale. You’re even inner journeying more profoundly than ever before. Others finding you asocial means you’re doing something right i.e. reacquainting with yourself.

Leo

If you feel edgy putting future plans into works, it’s due to Saturn opposing the Sun and Mercury. While still in retrograde, that planet can tangle and mangle plans. Old bonds factor heavily as favors are called in. You see how much you’ve changed in the eyes of old cronies. Resist falling back into tired behavior, which belies the calm you’ve carefully cultivated these past months. Those tempting you with delights designed to derail you test your progress. You’ve the grit to sacrifice fleeting sensation for a multi-year success plan.

Virgo

Prior to the Full Moon, Tuesday, you can be vague if not dissolute. Though you claim you’re chill and others are uptight, you may be in denial, experiencing a disconnect between mind and emotions. So: It’s about matching your will with your want, your imagination with your actions, behavior with beliefs. Let any resistance you encounter reinforce your resolve to achieve singular objectives. Standing tall, you receive cosmic assists via new allies and big breaks. You can’t afford to compare yourself with others.

Libra

You’ve a mounting sense something huge is about to happen, courtesy of Venus square Uranus. Heed inklings to put your surroundings in order before an imminent flood of activity ensues. Any hunch to liquidate some assets is a good one. There is great benefit in sudden change. Let go of pretend struggles, be they ongoing battles within, or delusions that certain goals are too difficult to realize. Advancement in your career or creative work calls for isolating so-called weaknesses, seeing them as sources of surpassing strength.

Scorpio

You enter a sort of sensory overload—memories engulf you by day and nightly reveries are ultra vivid, if not jarring. Neptune square Mars provides vivid clues to psychological conundrums as well as some artistic inspiration. This mash-up also amps self-esteem and the status others afford you, which may be one and the same. Contempt for others’ great successes is sour grapes. Turn intimidation to inspiration. Appreciating others as living examples raises your vibration, attracting real, divine assistance to speed your own trips.

Sagittarius

With the Sagittarius Full Moon, Tuesday, you’re set to make fast deals, snap decisions, and quick trips: Good timing as some bonds have become too close for comfort. Indeed, your love life may take a serious turn with Venus trine Saturn deepening some relations, earmarking others for elimination. Anxiety over budgets or contracts is a distraction. Stay firm in negotiations. Make it crystal you’re a fierce warrior, no frail worrier. So-called rejections won’t derail true desires—they will redirect you away from any false ones.

Capricorn

Venus in Leo, trining Saturn guides you toward a truer tribe of intimates. So worry not if you feel a certain disconnect from existing parties. You’re being saved from more emotional pain. Tuesday’s Full Moon provides the emotional detachment you need to see that nothing is personal. Though career stakes may be high, with a plethora of projects in the pipeline, it’s that much more important to plan a getaway if not a permanent escape. The support you seek is within; and a wee distance from others helps foster desired self-reliance.

Aquarius

You must now decide which campaigns to launch, and in what order. You delude yourself if you think you can achieve a multitude of goals all at once. Venus square Uranus shows you how a sweeping revolution can actually be a three-year plan. Priority one is health and mental well-being. The second is giving yourself requisite props, not to mention some trusty assistance, to succeed. An impulse move may be imminent; that, or you make a sudden switcheroo, dismantling an intended plan. Let your gut be your guide.

Pisces

You’re schooled in the art of discernment as Neptune squares Mars, Sun and Mercury. It comes in handy now as you have more work, social opportunities and loving attention than you can shake a stick at. Enter another lesson in the power of No, learning to decline offers without utterly closing doors. Others may revere you as expert, mentor or guru, but beware of groupies looking for a free ride on your groovy or gravy train. Only welcome aboard those who already contribute to your good fortune. It’ll feel so good to give back.
