Evolutionary Astrology offers tremendous insight into where the soul has been, its current life purpose and ultimately where the soul is going. Traditionally in astrology, the sun, moon and ascendant are emphasized, and obviously play a large role in the big picture. However, by diving deeper and addressing the soul intentions, you can uncover past dynamics, which may be preventing personal growth and joy. It helps to unveil the why in your patterns and offers insight and guidance to your path, enabling you to feel empowered and create your own reality that reflects your soul’s deepest desires and intention for your life.
We have partnered up with evolutionary astrologer, Kristin Fontana, and will be providing you with a weekly astrology forecast. For the past several years, she has been writing a weekly astrology forecast column for the Beach Reporter in Southern California. She is also listened to worldwide on her weekly EA radio show, Guiding Stars on the web. And don’t forget to shop our astrology gifts on our website! We have a couple specials for the Astrology candles and Zodiac Smudge Sticks currently.
Here is Kristin’s astrology forecast for week beginning September 17th, 2014:
Aug 23 – Sep 22
Virgo Crystals: Green Jade, Red Jasper, Citrine, Turquoise, Quartz Crystal
Patience is not only a virtue this week, it is essential if you hope to get what you are after. Currently Mars, the planet of desire, is in Sagittarius and squaring Neptune, the plant of the unknown. There is something you want, your hunches tell you that you are within reach, but there is also something elusive about this pursuit. One moment you are certain you can have it and the next minute it all feels so unpredictable. This makes it a challenge to know whether you are putting your energy into something that will give back to you in equal measure. The best news of the week for you Virgo, is that benevolent Venus is in your sign and will be forming an angle of confidence to Saturn on Sunday, Sept. 21, suggesting that certain conversations will validate what it is that you need to hear in order to feel secure. The trick might be in convincing your heart to get up to speed on what your mind has been told. You will uncover what you need to discover and it will let you know that is is safe to trust in what you want!
Sep 23 – Oct 23
Libra Crystals: Lapis Lazuli, Moonstone, Labradorite, Turquoise, Citrine
If you are feeling a bit crazy and unsettled this forecast week, it will be good to know that most likely everyone is else feeling the same way too, as Mars in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces. As Mars marches on, things will click powerfully into place but until then, you may be feeling plagued by some irrational fears and doubts. Emotions can take on a life of their own if you are not careful so lean on this ever supportive aspect involving your ruler Venus and its Soul centering link to Saturn to get yourself back into better balance and back on a better track. Your stellar support comes from on high, it will not come from an earthly other, and as soon as you recognize this pearl and remove any outside expectations, the faster you will be feeling good again. You do have tremendous relationship transits forming however as Jupiter in your house of like minded others and Uranus in your house of partnerships are set to connect in a way next week that they haven’t done in eighty-four years. First things first however, and that involves you getting strong and solid with you, and you feeling connected to that larger universal unconditional loving pulse. Once you are plugged in, you will be irresistible!
Oct 24 – Nov 21
Scorpio Crystals: Malachite, Amethyst, Citrine, Rhodochrosite, Quartz Crystal
Life is a morphing process. Nothing stays static for long and you Scorpio are famous for pushing the limits. You crave intensity and are hard wired to take things to the most penetratingly possible places. You want to get the most out of life, even if that requires plummeting to the depths of an emotion, also knowing this may be required in order to also reach the highest of highs. You do not play it safe, you may be skeptical and careful at times but when you are ready to go, you go full bore. Your younger brother Mars is transiting your house of what you value and squaring Neptune. You may be finding that things that once meant the world to you, are losing their meaning and hold and as a result, this may be causing some confusion surrounding the direction you want to take your life. In the middle of chaos, clarity begins to form, as Venus and Saturn sync up, offering an alternative way forward that proves to be exactly what you need. Epic career “opps’ are on the way, so clear the feeling fog so you are ready to leap!
Nov 22 – Dec 21
Sagittarius Crystals: Turquoise, Black Onyx, Chrysocolla, Citrine, Bronzite
Even if you are involved in certain communications with others, that feel as if you are simply going round and round the bend again, your efforts are not futile. Your efforts not only matter, they are paramount now in a potentially draining process, even more important are your intentions and motivations within these efforts. You may feel as if certain spirited pursuits are a waste of your energy as Mars in your sign squares Neptune but Venus is partnering with Saturn and will reach maximum support by Sunday, Sept. 21, to help secure a pact and in some cases to help strengthen a dream. There may be more details to your plan that start playing themselves out and it may also feel as if someone who has a higher view is tapping you on the shoulder and directing your next steps. There will be peace found in the silence and there will be a conscious lucidity that proves to be priceless. Your ruler Jupiter in fellow fire sign Leo forms a once in a life time angle to Uranus in fellow fire sign Aries in my next forecast but you are well within reach to reap the loving benefits now. Heart opening, freedom loving, spirit lifting change, offering a beautiful breakthrough is yours for the taking Sag. Grab it and go!
Dec 22 – Jan 19
Capricorn Crystals: Garnet, Azurite, Turquoise, Rutilated Quartz, Quartz Crystal
We know you want the sure thing Cappy. Who doesn’t? The sure thing guarantees more certainty and control and for you this equals sweet peace. Nothing can make you feel more out of control than the unknown and this week as Mars squares Neptune, there will be plenty of things on your mind that become unanswerable in the moment. You may find your thoughts grasping for things that offer a greater feeling of security, only to find that your mind quickly slips into mental spaces of ambiguity, creating a sense that you are grasping at straws and wondering what is secure enough to support your emotional weight. Your ruler steady Saturn steps in and straightens you out as he forms a secure angle to Venus, the planet governing those things you value most, which includes the ones you love, this Sunday, Sept. 21. You find some solid footing within your self, and you connect with your truth and the significance of your path and it allows you to make some sense of some of the madness in the world. An emotional sea change will ignite a passionate loving burst within your Soul when Jupiter and Uranus connect with precision in fire signs in my next forecast. Best rest up before the charge!
Jan 20 – Feb 19
Aquarius Crystals: Amethyst, Yellow Jasper, Rhodochrosite, Black Onyx, Quartz Crystal
When life starts to get nuts, you have a way of being able to separate yourself from the scene and watch from a safe distance, call it an escape hatch. Of course you are still forced to watch which never leaves you free from the drama, but it still tends to help ease some of the emotional hits. Mars is in Sagittarius and is squaring Neptune which is bound to ignite plenty of the unexpected. It may also cause you to feel restless beyond words and feeling as if you are ready to totally alter your trajectory. Thankfully, Saturn and Venus step in which will help you ‘keep your wits about you’ and will help keep your Soul steady and less reactive. Your ruler Uranus is forming a waxing angle of immense support to generous Jupiter as we speak, suggesting no matter what appears to be happening, there is good fortune in the air and luck is living large in your connections and communications with others. Someone is about to open a brand new door. Get ready to fly through!
Feb 19 – Mar 20
Pisces Crystals: Aquamarine, Amethyst, Bloodstone, Sodalite, Black Onyx
You tend to float Pisces, and choose to love in more of a dream state of being. It makes living here on Earth at times more pleasing as you find your imagination far more nurturing than the real world. This week, Mars is squaring your ruler Neptune, which could remove the blinders and get you in touch with a certain reality that needs your attention. It could also stimulate a desire to change paths or areas of focus as you bump up against the feeling that something has run its course, as your Soul is looking for something that offers greater growth and meaning. These realizations may be a result of some disillusioning turns with people you work with and this may have you wanting nothing to do with them any longer. Strength surfaces when you come face to face with a truth, and knowing what is real and true then allows you to make plans that reflect a keen awareness. Perhaps you have been spinning your wheels or spending time on things that are not contributing to your future. You get serious about how to direct your feeling resources and who gets the gift of your attention, someone that can give faithfully and equally to you in return!
Mar 21 – Apr 19
Aries Crystals: Quartz Crystal, Carnelian, Citrine, Black Onyx, Rose Quartz
Nothing like a shot in the arm, eh Aries? You’ve got the right dose of just the kind of energetic surge that you need, as your ruler Mars is now traveling through fellow fire sign Sagittarius until the end of October. This should carry you well into fall as there is plenty of time to not only turn things around but to lift you all the way up. Before things get really good, you may be initially feeling a bit all over the place, as Mars is squaring Neptune this week, and something in your life may be feeling out of control. It may also feel as if you have an abundance of energy and you are not quite sure how to direct the current. If there is any anger that you have been harboring, this could also come darting out so make sure you are in a safe range for its release. Fortunately, Venus, the balance of love and ease will be forming a stabilizing angle to Saturn, the planet of security, this weekend, which should help keep you feeling better balanced and in a more productive mind set. One way to settle your Soul is to engage in activities that anchor you in a healthier feeling mode, such as meditation, walks in nature, or listening to nurturing music. You will find what you need this week and you will also find that it works like magic!
Apr 20 – May 21
Taurus Crystals: Green Jade, Carnelian, Pyrite, Turquoise, Quartz Crystal
You very well may be experiencing an inner spiral this week as Mars, in your house of the Soul, squares Neptune, in your house of shifting sand. You are a fixed sign, which means it may take some time to get used to the change and this can make you inwardly wobble. However, your beloved ruler Venus has heard your cry and is moving into a most helpful position to Saturn to help ground you and re-center you within the change. As all over the place as a certain relationship may have been, there is promise now for things to steady and settle and for you to feel more secure within this connection. If nothing else, it will be a week where you are reminded of everything this person has brought to your life and it will energize a spirit of gratitude. Once they feel your appreciation, they will return the loving favor and shower you with some of their own heartfelt emotion. I know you do quite well on your own Taurus, but who doesn’t need a little validation along the way? Give a little more of your heart, and a good feeling floodgate will swing open!
May 22 – Jun 21
Gemini Crystals: Moonstone, Aquamarine, Green Jade, Rutilated Quartz, Quartz Crystal
Peace happens in steps. It is highly rare that it can ever happen in one feel swoop. The reason being is that we all hold onto things and store emotions connected to certain events that simply cannot be released in a moment. These things take time and a process in order for them to make their way out in a desirable manner. With your ruler Mercury in fellow air sign Libra and traveling so close to the North Node, the symbol for your future, you have an art this week in mending broken roads. Venus, the ruler for Libra, is also forming an angle of grace to Saturn, the planet that governs connections that can stand the test of time. You will discover this week just who those people are that will be with you for the long haul and what your bond is worth. With Mars in your house of relationships squaring Neptune, things may not be perfectly clear straight out of the gates, but by Sunday, Sept.21, the writing will be on the wall. In the end love does win, it always does!
Jun 22 – Jul 22
Cancer Crystals: Moonstone, Mother of Pearl, Red Jasper, Quartz Crystal, Rose Quartz
Emotion is the the most powerful motivator we have to change our world and the course of our life. It can be used to inspire us forward but it can also be detrimental if we are fueling those feelings with doubt. When doubt creeps in, the Cancer born Soul crawls up in a ball in its shell and pulls the covers over its head, protected by the safety of its inner womb. Mars is traveling in your house of improvements and is squaring Neptune this week, which can cause some question and dare I say doubt, regarding your life direction and possible uncertainty surrounding the feelings another has for you. Fortunately, Venus is also forming a supportive angle to Saturn, reflecting a love you can count on, and something you deeply value being solid and there for you when you need it. It will be important if that unwanted emotion does surface that you communicate your need to another and inquire about anything causing you question, before letting your mind play tricks on you. Speak up even if you are feeling insecure, and you will feel far better for exposing a bit of that underbelly. Your sweet affections will be reciprocated!
Jul 23 – Aug 22
Leo Crystals: Peridot, Tiger’s Eye, Pyrite, Carnelian, Black Onyx
At the end of the day, no matter what your heart is feeling, it is your Soul’s journey that counts. Be careful this week, not to get caught up in wild emotions that do not support forward progress. Old feelings of loss, abandonment and betrayal may surface as Mars in fellow fire sign Sagittarius, in your house of the heart, is squaring Neptune. It can also create a feeling of obsessing over past heartbreaks, causing old wounds to re-open. Oddly, this emotional exposure will allow you to help some hard feeling residue heal over and you find yourself inwardly building from a far better base. In whatever way that you feel ‘on your own’ this week, know that you have a world of passionate opportunity coming as Jupiter in your sign is very close to forming a positively electric charged angle to Uranus, which will occur in my next forecast. If you are well attuned, you should already be feeling that now. What this will equal for you are brand new better beginnings of the heart and of your creative capacity to actualize your special destiny. All in due time Leo. Just one more hump or hurdle and you are there!
