Sep 23 – Oct 23
Libra Crystals: Lapis Lazuli, Moonstone, Labradorite, Turquoise, Citrine
Fate defined is this: No matter how hard you try to avoid something from happening and it still happens anyway. Who does not know this to be true? This week is a fated week for all, but especially you Libra as not only is your Sun opposing a Full Moon Eclipse in Aries, your ruler Venus, in your sign, is squaring Pluto, the planet of karma. There is absolutely nothing light about this fire power load of energy and although it will play out in relative degrees depending on your own personal story, it will be a memorable window of time. Eclipses come in pairs and are always separated by two weeks time. The period between the eclipses will be extra potent and the energy will be quite malleable so do what you can to energize the best possible outcome for yourself, even though there will be some things you cannot control. It will be a time to re-direct your focus and re-think how you want to move forward in all of your relationships. New life in those loving connections is begging to begin so continue to encourage a spirit of spontaneity and invite some edgy risk and sudden surprise. Very soon, you may not even recognize your own sweet self.
Oct 24 – Nov 21
Scorpio Crystals: Malachite, Amethyst, Citrine, Rhodochrosite, Quartz Crystal
When you are pushed too far, you play hardball. However, it can take a quite a bit of build up before you snap, but boy when you do, people can feel it from here to eternity. Because you hold so much in and so far down in the bottom of the barrel of your being, it can feel like a pressure cooker in there. You are private with the true depths of your emotions and it truly says something when you choose to share these intimate corners with another. On Wednesday, Oct. 8., a Full Moon Eclipse in Aries in your house of doubt, has you questioning just about everything, including your own value and self worth, as your ruler also squares Venus on that day. You are typically far more confident in your pursuits but something is ringing that bell of question. Fortunately, your younger brother Mars is part of a Grand Fire Trine with Jupiter and Uranus, and he is working hard and fast to help you access an inner state of confidence again, because you know and I know, that confidence sells. The week’s intensity will certainly expose some of your insecurities, but it will also create a new foundation to build a better base from the ground up. Be open for some invisible support from on high and you will feel an answer to your call with the next wind that blows in.
You are far from alone!
Nov 22 – Dec 21
Sagittarius Crystals: Turquoise, Black Onyx, Chrysocolla, Citrine, Bronzite
You have never been known to be shy to take the cosmic plunge. When you see an opening, you jump in with your entire everything and then some. There tends to be no monitor meter in your Soul, and with expansive and at times excessive Jupiter as your ruler, you can also take on more than you can handle. This week is no exception as Jupiter is part of a Grand Trine in fire signs, including action Mars in your sign, as well as Uranus in Aries. The Full Moon Eclipse on Wednesday, Oct.8, happens to be conjoined Uranus in your house of creative self-actualization and could prove to catapult you to new career heights. However, be aware of who you extend your trust with your valuable offerings as Pluto does form a square to Venus in Libra, some things may indeed be too good to be true. With Mercury currently retrograde in Scorpio, and then backing into Libra on Friday, you will come to know who is in your camp and who isn’t, and that kinship and kindness will prove to be a balm for your being. But for the most part Sag, get ready cuz you are about to high tail it ‘outta’ here and find yourself somewhere far better, either figuratively or literally.
I know you are chomping at the bit for the challenge!
Dec 22 – Jan 19
Capricorn Crystals: Garnet, Azurite, Turquoise, Rutilated Quartz, Quartz Crystal
You are on the edge of your seat, and for some of you, you may be waiting for the next shoe to drop. Contracts are ending and new ones are beginning. Risk is required and you know you can’t say no, something is telling you that your evolution depends on it, and you are right. A Full Moon Eclipse in fire sign Aries has the collective cosmic current so ramped up, you know you have no choice but to jump on, jump in, or get burned. This does not only mean event related changing circumstances, this could also equal an emotional ride that forces inner change, demanding a letting go of holding patterns of the past, as the eclipse is creating an earthquake of energy in your house of home and the emotional body. Do remember that the greater you resist, the more intense the kickback of energy, similar to holding on to a rubber band and it snapping under pressure and stinging you as a result. Find a space of emotional freedom and access the long overdue courage to free fall. Follow the fire which also happens to be offering the greatest amount of light to illuminate your path.
Ready,set, blast off!
Jan 20 – Feb 19
Aquarius Crystals: Amethyst, Yellow Jasper, Rhodochrosite, Black Onyx, Quartz Crystal
Everyone wants a chance for a ‘do-over’, an opportunity to go back into the annals of your life and flip a few switches, as if they never happened at all. Let’s say it were possible, yet the memory of it still remained in the cells of your being. All of the memories of your past condition every moment in the making. It creates an imprint and a feeling and it does dictate your choice making moving forward. This week however, something is coming full circle and at the same time igniting a brand new beginning as a Full Moon Eclipse in Aries conjoins your ruler Uranus, the planet that governs long term memory. This will offer a dramatically transformative perspective on the past and allow you to blast forward in an electrically new way. This eclipse also forms a Grand Trine with Mars in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Leo, impacting all areas of the heart and in connection to your relationships with others. Pluto is forming a square to Venus in fellow air sign Libra in your house of truth, which will induce honest exchanges with key others that may be dreaded but are destined to happen.
Let the tides speak for themselves and I guarantee something that is measured as some kind of special will render you positively speechless!
Feb 19 – Mar 20
Pisces Crystals: Aquamarine, Amethyst, Bloodstone, Sodalite, Black Onyx

Perhaps you are not through, karmically speaking, with a certain few others, and this Full Moon Eclipse in Aries on Wednesday, Oct. 8, which is conjunct liberating Uranus, will have a way of setting your Soul free from those whom you feel have betrayed you or let you down. It is a clean up shop kind of week in the karmic sense of the word, and the energy now is encouraging you to wash your hands of everything and anything that is bad ju ju. Pluto is also squaring Venus during this eclipse which will have a way of eliminating things and people in your life who are not benefiting you in some way or those who have hidden agendas. Thank the stars for clearly pointing them out to you. This may be a week for high earning and also high spending so watch your wallet. Sudden openings in your world of career may also show up as if they were displayed on a billboard of lights.
Strike while the iron is hot!
Mar 21 – Apr 19
Aries Crystals: Quartz Crystal, Carnelian, Citrine, Black Onyx, Rose Quartz
You can imagine that if the population was divided into twelve, and as an Aries born you represented one piece of that pie (although it is not a perfect science), not all of you would be experiencing the exact same thing at the same time just because you are all an Aries. Thus the dilemma of an astrologer writing for twelve signs. Unless a personal birth chart is generated, it becomes a focus on themes, specifically linked to your ruler Mars. All of you will feel the energy directly connected to wherever Mars is positioned in the sky. This week is epic in that regard, and although not all of you will have outer manifestations of this Full Moon Eclipse in Aries on Wednesday, Oct. 8, all of you will at least feel it inwardly in wildly moving ways. Your ruler Mars, is in fellow fire sign Sagittarius, and forming a powerful trinity of energy with Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries. If you want to change your life, you will not have to try very hard. If you want to attract better things for yourself, you have the cosmic backing to do that too. if you want to know who you can trust, Pluto’s square to Venus will make it painfully clear. And if you have really followed an honest past, positively ridiculous life changing events are on the horizon, just when and where you least expect.
May the surprise be bright and delight!
Apr 20 – May 21
Taurus Crystals: Green Jade, Carnelian, Pyrite, Turquoise, Quartz Crystal

It won’t matter what you do to try and stop them from surfacing, they are rising up into your world of awareness as this lunar boom joins Uranus and forms a Grand Trine with Jupiter and Mars. There is one aspect of this eclipse that causes pause. Your ruler Venus is in Libra and will be squaring Pluto as well, which will prove to expose some hidden truths about someone you were not privy to before. Of course knowing the full truth is always best so you know how to clearly direct your energy but it does not eliminate the pain. With Mercury also retrograde in Scorpio in your house of relationships, this can help you get to the root of anything, so you can make the necessary adjustments. This is one radical month where energy is concerned and it will surely keep you on your toes, so partner with this stream as best you can and make some magic happen, because it is available for those who deeply wish to dig in and risk it all.
Did I hear you say yes?
May 22 – Jun 21
Gemini Crystals: Moonstone, Aquamarine, Green Jade, Rutilated Quartz, Quartz Crystal
At times, the energy in the ethers can be moving at such a hard and fast pace, it can feel as if something is happening to you, as if the planets are conspiring to force some sort of event upon you, as if you do not have a choice at all in the matter. However, the planets cannot ’cause’ anything to happen, astrology is simply a reflection of life. Every choice you have made has led you to this point and every turn you take creates an energetic influence, called karma, which is the law of cause and effect. Here you stand, now facing another opportunity to take a step in a new direction as Mars, Jupiter and Uranus all combine forming a Grand Trine in fire signs, activating your relationships and communications across the board. This is occurring at the same time as a Full Moon Eclipse in Aries on Wednesday, Oct. 8, in your house of innovation and liberating breakthroughs. Very soon, you may not recognize a certain area of your life, if not your entire life. There could not be a better time to be bold with your tongue and honest with your heart. Your ruler Mercury is retrograde in Scorpio, and with Pluto squaring Venus now, you are learning some fast lessons surrounding trust. Heed the warning, and steer clear where it is smart to do so.
It is time to re-write your walk, now that you are ‘in the know’!
Jun 22 – Jul 22
Cancer Crystals: Moonstone, Mother of Pearl, Red Jasper, Quartz Crystal, Rose Quartz
There are those moments in time when words fall short, they cannot come close to describing how your inner world feels. The Full Moon Eclipse in Aries on Wednesday, Oct.8, which conjuncts Uranus, the planet of the unexpected, will have a way of doing just that. This lunar blast however is also forming a Grand Trine with Mars and Jupiter in fire signs, so there may be some enticing opportunities on the heels of some unforeseen change. Trust issues are on the table for anyone who invests their heart into something this week as well as Pluto will be squaring Venus, and it will be time to weed out those who are duplicit and divided in their stance. You will get the help you need from supportive others when Mercury retrogrades back into Libra on Friday, Oct.10. Keep a penetrating focus on nurturing your own Soul center, while tending to your own inner flame and believe me Cancer, when and where you least expect it, someone will not only be mesmerized by your light, they will be doing all they can to secure a place on your path. Attach to nothing, except to your own beautiful growth, and by the next eclipse, Oct. 23, the ball will be clearly in your court.
A well earned confidence is coming!
Jul 23 – Aug 22
Leo Crystals: Peridot, Tiger’s Eye, Pyrite, Carnelian, Black Onyx
Opportunities in life can show up left and right, but these chances for promising change can’t happen on their own, for it all depends on whether or not you choose to participate and follow through on these desires with action. It is time to get a move on and there will be nothing in your being, except possibly a sprinkle or two of fear, that is going to stop you from taking the leap. A Full Moon Eclipse in fellow fire sign Aries is joined by Uranus on Wednesday, Oct. 8, in your house of faith and is forming a Grand Trine in the sky with Mars in Sagittarius and Jupiter in your sign Leo. It does not matter how crazy things may be playing out, you are not only going to land on your feet, you will hit the ground running. On the one hand, certain fateful encounters and events may be playing out with key others as Pluto is squaring Venus, and this may be causing some pressure and stress, but you also have not ever had this kind of cosmic backing in your life with this Grand Fire Trine in place. You will not be on the outside looking in, you will be all the way in and deep in the center of a new moving groove.
The energy will meter out some as we enter the weekend but keep that strong momentum going while you can throughout the next few weeks and the distance you will cover will be ground breaking!
Aug 23 – Sep 22
Virgo Crystals: Green Jade, Red Jasper, Citrine, Turquoise, Quartz Crystal
It often helps to play the observer when you are trying to gain accurate information, and with your ruler Mercury now retrograde in Scorpio, you are finally getting a clear picture of what’s in front of you. Mercury shifts back into Libra on Friday, Oct 10, which will have you re-evaluating how you wish to balance your energy and who you wish to give your attentions to, as a result of what you are uncovering and discovering. Stay as detached and emotionally removed as possible and you will be able to see a clear path forward. Mars, Jupiter and Uranus are forming a Grand Trine in fire signs during the Full Moon Eclipse in Aries, in your house of the Soul, suggesting you are destined to experience some revolutionary growth. After all, isn’t that why we are all here Virgo? One thing you can be sure of with Jupiter in your house of the unseen world, is that no matter how things appear out there, you have a benevolent energy that is protecting you, and gracing you with an ever-loving unconditional presence.
Rise above what matters not, and be open for some timeless love!
