We have partnered up with evolutionary astrologer, Kristin Fontana, and will be providing you with a weekly astrology forecast. Here is Kristin’s astrology forecast for week beginning October 1st, 2014:
Sep 23 – Oct 23
Libra Crystals: Lapis Lazuli, Moonstone, Labradorite, Turquoise, Citrine
Opportunity positively peaks in relationships, for new ones may enter and transformation within those that already exist will occur, that is, for those who are not holding on too tightly or overly attaching to either a partner, or clinging to the idea of what a certain other could bring. With a Full Moon Eclipse in Aries in your opposite sign conjunct Uranus, the planet of breaking free, on Wednesday, Oct 8, nothing may soon look like it once did and you will be celebrating that fact. Either something needs to end or something needs to change, a new zest and a zing is what you need, and you are going to be hellbent on making sure some liberating oxygen enters your relationships. Some hard realities in your world are driving changing desires, whether you have recently lost a loved one or are feeling some imminent truth of this in the near future as Pluto is squaring your loving ruler Venus on eclipse day. It is sending the reminder message that life is precious and short and this is bound to ignite feelings of the need for adventure and taking risks, including having the courage to take on those tough truth- out talks with someone that needs to hear what you have to say. This week, in fact, this entire month, is full of surprises, that pendulum can swing either direction depending on how much you have been holding in and holding back.
A reward awaits for those who step into the ring!
Oct 24 – Nov 21
Scorpio Crystals: Malachite, Amethyst, Citrine, Rhodochrosite, Quartz Crystal
You don’t dance around and you don’t mess around, you never have and you never will. You are a straight shooter Scorp. This next month supports such strategies as a Full Moon in Aries has so much charge on Wednesday, Oct. 8, that not a Soul could escape the cosmic surge even if they wanted to. This is the kind of energy that magic carpet rides are made of, although I cannot guarantee it will be free of roller coaster dipping drops and quick turns without notice. This particular eclipse however is coupled with a rare triangle of epic support involving Mars in Sagittarius, Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries, all joining forces to catapult you into another universe. I realize it is often best to know where you are headed but isn’t it also true that some of the best surprises in life would not feel half as good if you knew what was coming? Of course your Soul’s karma and life choices that have led up to this point will determine how this all plays out for you, and one thing is for certain, any and all weak links in your life will be exposed, but the goods are golden for gain and the energy to advance yourself in the world at this point will nearly be handed to you on a silver platter, that is, once you remove who and/or what cannot be trusted.
You are in the zone now, give yourself a push and the universe will do the rest!
Nov 22 – Dec 21
Sagittarius Crystals: Turquoise, Black Onyx, Chrysocolla, Citrine, Bronzite
You are a like a live wire now Sag, where this current takes you nobody knows, not even you. Mars, the planet of fire and desire, is in your sign, which can be excellent for knowing what you want and being able to access the energy to get there. It can also trigger excessive amounts of energy that can take your energy too far, activating bursts of anger at times, if there is anything unresolved that is parked in your body and being. The great news however, is there is an incredible energetic window for you to channel your energy as Mars connects with perfect precision to Uranus on Saturday, Oct. 4, and then forms a Grand Trine to include Jupiter in Leo in the coming week. I cannot think of three planets linked in this way that could offer you more, so do take advantage of this ridiculously advantageous energetic stream. This a once on a lifetime trend and my sense is that you will look back at this time in the next month as a liberating benchmark that proved to expand your consciousness and your path in memorable ways. If nothing else, it will be a time when you return to a more natural state of being and resonate at a higher frequency as a result.
Be true to yourself and the path ahead will shine, in anticipation of your approach!
Dec 22 – Jan 19
Capricorn Crystals: Garnet, Azurite, Turquoise, Rutilated Quartz, Quartz Crystal
The Soul’s ignition button is located within. There is no place outside of yourself that you can access to get your engine running. There is no one in the world that can help start your engine either. A Full Moon Eclipse in fire sign Aries in your house of home and the emotional body, is joined by electric Uranus on Wednesday, Oct. 8, and we are all well within reach of feeling its steam. You simply could not have more energy at your disposal to launch something new, to set something in motion, or to turn your energy around. It is literally knocking on your door. Pluto in your sign will also be receiving a growth promoting square to Venus in Libra, the sign of relationships, which will undoubtedly bring you to the very edge with someone so you know the extent of what is possible and what is not. This is a testing time as well to show you who you can trust in a certain unfolding career process. However, this is also a time when you can afford to reach for the stars and energize the ultimate ideal for your future, without limits.
So gift yourself this vision, and know that the universe will be working hard to help make that dream come true!
Jan 20 – Feb 19
Aquarius Crystals: Amethyst, Yellow Jasper, Rhodochrosite, Black Onyx, Quartz Crystal
Last week I spoke of a rare eighty-four year trend involving your ruler Uranus in the sign of Aries, forming a highly auspicious angle, known as a trine, to abundant Jupiter in Leo. That aspect set the stage for what’s to come. To sweeten the pot, Mars is joining the bonfire of plenty as he travels through Sagittarius and will also form a perfect trine to Uranus this Saturday, Oct. 4. This triangle of passion and heat has enough fuel to radically change and/or accelerate the speed of your travels. Where you once felt stuck and slow, now things can happen in a snap, when and where you least expect it. What follows is a Full Moon Eclipse in Aries, which will be joined by Uranus, as they together form a radiating triangle of momentous change. This coming eclipse will not equal all things for all people, but with Uranus, your ruler, playing a vital role in this key configuration, you are in position to benefit from this cosmic charge.
Considering the nature of eclipses connect to the unexpected, it will be impossible to plan for such things, but my recommended approach is to be ready for anything!
Feb 19 – Mar 20
Pisces Crystals: Aquamarine, Amethyst, Bloodstone, Sodalite, Black Onyx
Get ready to rise, and dare not be afraid to fall, for you could not have more stellar support supporting your base than you do now, with Mars in Sagittarius in your house of career forming a grand Trine to Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries, in the areas of your chart that connect to earnings and career. Wherever and however you feel naturally drawn to grow, you will find teachers and signposts at every turn. The way will be clear as some unexpected opportunities make their way spontaneously into your life. Of course nothing is a coincidence Pisces, for you have been earning this break. If you find yourself in a world that does not support the best that you can bring, then openings for work that more naturally suit you may materialize out of thin air and you may be forced to act quickly. I realize Mercury is moving retrograde in fellow water sign Scorpio on Saturday, Oct. 4, but it will shift back into your house of empowerment to help you get back in touch with your root strength so you can be in better alignment with your natural calling.
All you have to do is ‘show up’ ready to serve and ready to work, and a surprise offer may just raise the roof of your reality!
Mar 21 – Apr 19
Aries Crystals: Quartz Crystal, Carnelian, Citrine, Black Onyx, Rose Quartz
This next week is spring loaded, not to mention the entire next month. As we enter eclipse season, your sign is emphasized in total as a Full Moon Eclipse in Aries conjuncts electric Uranus on Wednesday, Oct. 8, and forms a power trine to Jupiter and your ruler Mars. If that wasn’t potent and full of promising potential enough, these planets are all aligning in fire signs. Fire, as you must know being an Aries, is about passion and desire, it’s about what you want and what you will to have happen, it’s about progress, motion and movement. Mercury does station retrograde in the middle of it all this weekend, but this may simply be a result of your need to think on your feet and change directions, very likely because you want to. If it does not at first appear to be your choice, trust me, you will come to be thrilled with the outcome as the universe does have the birds’ eye view. Things start to peak on Saturday, Oct. 4, as your mighty ruler Mars forms an exact trine to Uranus, so expect a strong splash and a burst by then.
Pay attention to those inner stirrings and then hold onto your hat, because you very well may be headed somewhere fast and into territory you have never known!
Apr 20 – May 21
Taurus Crystals: Green Jade, Carnelian, Pyrite, Turquoise, Quartz Crystal
The next week guarantees surprise with some serious speed as a Full Moon Eclipse in Aries is building and will peak forming a conjunction to Uranus on Wednesday, Oct. 8, in your house of dreams and closure. Pluto, the planet of the Soul will also be forming an exact square to your ruler Venus which will undoubtedly bring some hidden content to the surface with respect to a key other, so you are more ‘in the know’ or finally seeing someone’s true colors. These times ignite and demand growth whether you are ready or not, so you might as well climb aboard the train of evolution, for the greater your resistance, the more intense certain coming turns may be. On a most positive note, a rare Grand Trine is forming and we are within orb of strong influences now as Mars in Sagittarius connects with brilliance to Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries, all in water houses for you. This activates great movement of the central current within you, to promote a positive inner shift and motivation to aspire for more and to raise the bar of your own walk on this journey. It’s about forgiveness, of self and others, and about taking the high road so you can open yourself up for a grander emotional or spiritual return.
This is your window to soar like never before!
May 22 – Jun 21
Gemini Crystals: Moonstone, Aquamarine, Green Jade, Rutilated Quartz, Quartz Crystal
It’s a big week, heck it’s even overall a bigger month as things energetically snowball. There is no sitting it out for this round, everyone will have a go with these coming tides. In the middle of it all, your ruler Mercury stations retrograde this weekend, just when things were getting wild and interesting. Mars in Sagittarius is progressively forming a triangle of immense support in the sky to Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries and will make its first exact aspect on Saturday, Oct. 4, but will be fully loaded and charged for the next several days and up through the Full Moon Eclipse in Aries on Wednesday, Oct. 8. The areas of your life that will be intimately influenced by these energetic tides are relationships as well as communications and negotiations, with the intention to stimulate positive progress and change. Anything goes during eclipse season, and although there is a crazy amount of intensity, it is coupled with some remarkably rare support. For those of you who have the courage to take unthinkable risks and put yourself out there in a new way, it will be breakthrough city.
All the energy you need to succeed is at your fingertips!
Jun 22 – Jul 22
Cancer Crystals: Moonstone, Mother of Pearl, Red Jasper, Quartz Crystal, Rose Quartz
Full Moons are bold enough as it is, but when eclipse season shows up, with the beautiful moon as your ruler, you are fully charged and loaded with potential to knock down whatever doors are in your way, in order to get your way. You may be shy at times Cancer, but not when your ruler peaks in the sky, that is when you are at your brightest, your ‘feisty-est’ and quite often, your best. A Full Moon Eclipse in Aries will conjoin Uranus in your house of career and your public self on Wednesday, Oct. 8, but you are well within reach for some fireworks now. Prior to the big bang, Mars will form an exact aspect of brilliance to Uranus on Saturday, Oct. 4. Ironically, this all occurs on the very same day that Mercury stations retrograde. This may have you back pedaling some as you uncover a path or a project or a plan that feels resonant to your Soul with deep potential, and perhaps you wish to explore the possibilities. One thing will be clear, is who is worthy of joining you on your journey. There is no room for dead weight, and within the next month, you are going to be getting trim and shedding the unwanted. Get ready to set your Soul free. Do it yourself or the universe will do it for you.
Jul 23 – Aug 22
Leo Crystals: Peridot, Tiger’s Eye, Pyrite, Carnelian, Black Onyx
Patience will not be your strong suit this coming month, for you know now what you want and you will not be in any mood to wait around for it. A glorious Grand Trine in fire signs is forming and you Leo are one of the stars of course. Mars in Sagittarius is joining forces with Jupiter in your sign and Uranus in Aries this weekend to form a triangle of great speed and strength that will extend throughout next week, including on the day of the Full Moon Eclipse in fellow fire sign Aries on Wednesday, Oct. 8. Mercury also stations retrograde this weekend in Scorpio in your house of home and the emotional body, which has these areas of your life intensely in focus. The energy at hand is serving to help you energize your deepest Soul desires and to remove anything from your life and your path that depletes and defeats, and does not support a forward momentum stride. You may feel that in order for progress to be made, that you are going to have to go at something solo, which will take a little extra inner digging to muster the strength, but the gates are wide open now, all you need to do is walk on through.
Follow the lights!
Aug 23 – Sep 22
Virgo Crystals: Green Jade, Red Jasper, Citrine, Turquoise, Quartz Crystal
If you could change the way you think, for I know how your mind can race, better yet, if you could change the way you feel about one thing, what would it be? Thoughts effect your vital emotional current. One negative thought could turn a good day into a day of darkness. Thoughts take on a life of their own and before you know it , they can hold you captive. But this week, all of that can change as a Full Moon Eclipse in Aries, in your house of the Soul, is being joined by radical Uranus, and together they are forming a positive emotion-altering triangle of support with Mars in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Leo. This coming eclipse can change the trajectory of your Soul forever, and forever for the better as it helps you to rise to an optimistic occasion, helping you take charge of your inner domain and use that inner current to help you versus hinder you. Your ruler Mercury also stations retrograde this weekend in Scorpio in your house of the mind, helping you to penetrate to the root cause of any negative thoughts pattern and extinguish it for good.
The sooner you feel better about you, the faster you will attract exactly what you want!
