5R’s – Incredible to  1R – Awful

We begin the weekend with the Moon transiting gregarious Gemini. The Sun (in hauntingly seductive Scorpio) trines transiting Neptune (in Pisces) in the afternoon. Folks are creative and imaginative with their Halloween costumes. The Moon moves into family-oriented Cancer very early on Saturday morning where it remains the remainder of the weekend.

Aries – Speak your mind on Friday. Don’t overdo it, however, because you could be feeling a bit combative. That’s fine if you really feel you need to get something off your chest. Look at the big picture, and understand the consequences. You may need to catch up on your correspondence. Return phone calls, catch up on email, and chat away. Have you changed your status on Facebook? You might take a short trip. Home and family are important the remainder of the weekend. Your romantic creativity and imagination is impressive on Saturday. A project may be approaching completion, although interference from others might irritate you. Next week: Your creativity soars.  RRR  

Taurus – Pay bills and focus on your finances on Friday. You’re imaginative with one on one relating. A friend might have some good ideas. You speak with sensitivity most of the remainder of the weekend. Hang out with friends and neighbors. Take an overview, and try out your ideas on others. You will probably need to remain flexible, or you could end up with that “Lord today” feeling. Don’t become obsessed with one idea that you may not like. Try not to sit on deeper emotional feelings. Let go of something unnecessary. You are likely to feel generous and more than a little bit self-indulgent on Sunday. Feelings are deep but pleasant. Someone could bend over backwards in an effort to help you and fulfill your needs. Next week: Changes at home.  RRRRR

Gemini – Go for what you want on Friday as the Moon has put you in the spotlight. You smile and others respond. Take a look at your finances the remainder of the weekend, and try to get a handle on expenditures. Some good bargains may help you to save money if you need to. If you have been neglecting your partner, family, and/or good friends lately in favor of work, you may not find this weekend to be very pleasant. If that is the case, your adaptability will help you to bring things back into balance. Use your power creatively, and make some changes on Saturday. You’re cheerful on Sunday even though there is likely more work to do. Next week: Some will head out for a new home. Others, more work.  RRR

Cancer – You may be a bit slow to get into the holiday weekend spirit this weekend. Get some R & R on Friday. On Saturday, you are the star of the show. What do you wish for? Go for it now. Social get-togethers are fun as delightfully scary fantasies abound, and friends are pleasant to be with. You might have your mind on just one other person, however, because your testosterone level is off the charts. Your words are stronger and might be a bit sharper than usual on Saturday. The party could get pretty wild before it’s over. However, on Sunday you are in a more compromising state of mind. Peaceful relationships is the goal. Next week: Pay the bills.  RRRRR

Leo – Having some festive Halloween fun with your friends is probably what you’re up to this Friday. Many are creative and imaginative. Romantic relationships are intense. You might want to curb a slight tendency to be possessive. When all the festivities are finally over, you may want to vanish. You could have something important to attend to the remainder of the weekend, or you might simply need a little extra R & R. If you’re feeling a bit touchy or irritable, taking a look at the big picture will probably cheer you up. You could feel a bit lonely and isolated on Sunday, but it will pass. Next week: Go for what you want.  RRR

Virgo – You will have responsibilities to take care of on Friday, and no one works as hard as Virgo. You’ll handle them with your usual discipline and attention to detail, although you could be feeling a bit touchy. You are clearly someone who can get things done. But, the rest of the week, get with friends for some fun and games. You deserve it, and with the two benefic planets along with energetic Mars in your sign, you’ll likely have enormously pleasant and fun times and perhaps romance as well. You have deep and profound emotions on Saturday night. However, your mood is light and cheerful on Sunday. Next week: Get some rest.  RRRRR

Libra – Take off early on Friday if you can. As a matter of fact, take off the whole day and head for the hills or out of town to look for a new adventure. Otherwise, responsibilities land on you for the remainder of the weekend. Regardless, you are a force to be reckoned with. You have an eager mind and you feel more alert and mentally sharp.

New and different adventures abound the remainder of the weekend. It’s Halloween, and all the imaginative costumes of wicked witches, ghouls, and goblins are a delight. Don’t forget to check out the handsome princes and beautiful princesses, although you’ll be more interested in what is below the surface. Others may head out on an adventure out of town. On Sunday, you feel good and you approach everything with vitality and self-confidence. Next week: Responsibility calls.  RRRRR  

Sagittarius – Defer to others on Friday, and your popularity is on the rise. Let others choose the fun activities this weekend. You’re optimistic, and optimistic people are attractive.

Capricorn – You have work to do on Friday before you can enjoy the weekend festivities. A sibling or neighbor has an excellent imagination and is quite creative. Lady luck is smiling upon you. Others will not allow you to work the remainder of the weekend, however. You could feel as if you are being pulled in two different directions. Lighten up. You’re quite popular, and you’ll likely have numerous invitations. Defer, and allow someone else to decide. You’ll make some new discoveries on Sunday, and you may be able to solve something that had eluded you prior to now. Next week: Spend some time with someone that you care deeply about. RRRR

Aquarius – Your playfulness is impressive, and you’re creative as well. Singles looking for love may have some interesting opportunities on Friday. You could get lucky. You also could be the agent of radical changes in your life (and others). Let off some steam on Saturday. You may have more than your share of work to do the remainder of the weekend. That’s perfectly fine with some of you as Halloween is not your favorite holiday. Others will find a way to mix some fun in with work. Your thinking will be unusually influenced by your feelings. Dig deep for answers on Sunday. This week: Others demand your attention.  RRR

Pisces – Home is definitely where your heart is on Friday. The warmth of home and family pleases you. Your imagination and intuition are impressive. Take a look at the big picture and how you can manifest your future goals. It’s time for fun and games and romance the remainder of the weekend. You’re also creative. You could be a bit sensitive and vulnerable, however. Try not to take anything too seriously or personally. Your mind is stimulated on Sunday, and you could have some pretty wild ideas. They flash through your mind at lightning speed. Next week: Focus on work and health issues and a little romance. RRRR

Tuesday, October 27, 2015


The following are (astrological) general rules for analyzing how one manages financial affairs and what shape their financial position may be in along with what is happening with one’s financial situation. There are exceptions to these general rules.

First, the signs of Taurus and Scorpio have a financial connotation. Taurus deals with most money issues, and Scorpio deals with one’s partner’s finances, insurance, and taxes. The houses involved are the second house (your money) and the eighth house (others’ finances, insurance, and taxes). For speculative ventures and the stock market, we look at the fifth house. Venus, Pluto, Jupiter, Saturn, and the Sun may have financial consequences natally and/or from transits.

A Saturn transit of one’s second (or eighth) house or making aspects to the above mentioned planets will generally limit or restrict our finances or our money making potential. On the other hand, if we work hard and focus on this area that the Saturn transit indicates we should be working on, it could help us to firm up and solidify our financial position.

A transit made by the benefic planets (Jupiter or Venus) generally enhances our money making potential. However, Jupiter loves excess and Venus has a penchant for luxury. So, if you overdo it, you might be spending more money than the extra amount that you make during these transits. So, much depends on how one handles these transits, because we have free-will.

If Pluto is transiting your second house (or, your natal Venus), you will probably experience a major (possibly slow and relentless) change (of a transformational nature) to the way you make money and probably the way you think about money and your financial affairs. You could become obsessed with money or making money if you're not careful. Favorable aspects from Pluto to your money planets or from your money houses could make you quite clever about financial issues and making money.

A Neptune transit will probably make one fantasize about money and the good life. We aren’t normally very realistic with a Neptune transit, and that could get us into trouble if we do not try to stay at least a little bit grounded. Your money could evaporate under a Neptune transit, and you might be in a fog as to what is happening.

If Uranus is transiting one’s second house, s/he should expect the unexpected with regard to monetary issues. There could be sudden and unexpected expenditures or sudden and unexpected monetary income from surprising sources during this transit. You'll need to be quick about taking advantage of financial opportunities with advantageous Uranus aspects/transits.

It is no surprise that the second house deals with our values as individuals. If we look at what one spends his or her money and other resources on, we learn much about his or her value system and what s/he values. Some of these transits are for making us take a look at our values. What do you value?

Astrology And Health

Before I proceed with the discussion regarding astrology and health issues, I must first issue a disclaimer. Astrologers are not doctors. If you have a health problem, make a beeline to your personal physician and forget about astrology for the time being. Having said that, certain planets do seem to have rulership over certain parts of the body, and certain planetary constellations and aspects appear more likely than others to cause illness.

I’ll give you a few examples of planets and a few of the areas of the body they govern:

Sun: heart, upper back, right eye in males, left eye in females

Moon: breasts, stomach, left eye in males, right eye in females

Mercury: lungs, solar plexus, arms, hands, tongue, nervous system, sense of sight

Venus: throat, kidneys, skin, sense of touch, lower part of back, buttocks

Mars: muscular system, bladder, head, face, sense of taste

We generally look at one’s sixth house and its ruler with regard to health issues. In a natal chart, the Ascendant, the Sun, the Moon, Saturn, and Mars and their conditions/situations are also important. A chart must be looked at in an holistic manner for a proper analysis, however. If Saturn is transiting your sixth house, it’s time to get serious and focus on health issues. You can solidify your health and your body, so why not join the gym. Ignore your health during this period and you are likely to be or get into trouble healthwise. If Jupiter is transiting your sixth house, your health is likely to be quite good. However, you might also be prone to gaining weight. The positive effects of Jupiter are sometimes limited. Jupiter has healing powers, but the planet also expands whatever it touches. If it touches a tumor in your body and expands it, that is not such a good thing. If you have a health issue while Neptune is transiting your sixth house, it may be difficult to pinpoint exactly what is wrong or what is the problem.

All of the signs govern certain areas of the body and are prone to some health issues. If you’d like to know more about that, check out this site for more information.

Aries – You have a lot to get done this weekend and with very little time. With your energy level and motivation, you’ll get through it all with time to spare. By late Friday night, you will want to do something completely different. A partner seems more him or herself than in the past three weeks. And, your career and/or social standing could get a boost.

Sagittarius – You’re in charge and a force to be reckoned with this weekend, especially on Friday and Saturday. Responsibilities expand and mount.

You express yourself creatively through your relationships. Financial transactions are favored, and you could get quite lucky. RRRRR

Capricorn – Let go of responsibility and look for something new and different this weekend. You will not be happy with the same ole. See a movie that you normally wouldn’t, go to a concert, or check out a new restaurant. A short trip works as well. You could be a bit irritable. Find an outlet for your excess energy. You have pleasant feelings and are in harmony with yourself on Saturday, however. But, on Sunday your career and/or responsibilities will recapture your attention. It’s a time for serious thinking. You could be fortunate as a result of some type of foreign transaction or deal. Use your power creatively. A family member could be rebellious on Sunday. RRRR

Aquarius – Spend time with someone you care a lot about this weekend. Those feelings and the intensity of the relationship are impressive. Let off some steam if you need to. However, you might run into a bit of a bump later on Saturday afternoon. It’s temporary. It is an excellent time for planning nonetheless. Your thinking is clear and precise. You could benefit from some behind the scenes maneuver. Let your mind wander to far-away places and distant lands on Sunday if you can. A new book might be interesting. But, the unexpected happens and you could be quite irritable. If you accept the changes that are occurring, it can be a very liberating influence. RRRR

Pisces – Defer to others this weekend. Let someone else make the plans. You might just want to have a lazy day on Friday. You will likely receive a number of invitations nevertheless. Your popularity increases (perhaps greatly). If you’re single, potential suitors could be coming out of the woodwork. You deserve this, so enjoy it. But, if someone doesn’t like the real you, it might be best to let them go. You need to be pruning your life of the unnecessary anyway. On Sunday, you might want to get to know one other person better. Take your time and do it right. You could be in for quite a surprise with regard to your finances or your partner’s finances on Sunday. RRRRR

One of the subjects that astrologers are often asked about is moving. When is the best time to move? When will I move to a new home and/or place? Should I move?When asked these questions, we look at a few specific areas or points in a natal chart. 

The fourth house in a natal chart deals with the home. Are there planets in that house and are there any transits in that house that would symbolize/indicate a move? The Moon also deals with home and family issues. Are there transits to the person’s natal Moon that would indicate a move? And, we sometimes look at the ruler of the person’s fourth house. For example, if you have Capricorn on the cusp of the fourth house in your chart, Saturn is the ruler. So, we would look at the person’s natal Saturn and see if there are any transits that would indicate a move.

When is the best time to make a move? I think most astrologers would agree that it is best to make a move with a positive Jupiter transit to those planets and/or the fourth house. A Jupiter transit would most likely provide the opportunities to move. However, it might not provide the motivation. If things are going well, as they likely would be under a Jupiter transit, one might not want to rock the boat (so to speak). It’s a “if it aint broke, don’t fix it” type of a thing. The person might still add on to their current home. That fits with the expansive nature of Jupiter.

So, how about the “when will I move” or “when am I likely to move?” I would first look for a Uranus transit to those areas in a person’s chart. Uranus is the planet of change – most of the time, sudden and unexpected. This planet awakens us to the need or the great desire for a change. With this planet transiting those areas in a chart, you can count on some kind of change occurring. It will likely be something that you (or others) did not expect, however. You’ll feel restless under this transit and like something needs to happen/change. If that change doesn’t happen or doesn’t happen as quickly as you’d like, you will likely become the agent of that change yourself.

Next, I would look for any Pluto transits to those areas of a person’s chart. Pluto is the planet of transformation. This could cause a change of residence, but the change would probably be slow and relentless (as if you didn’t have much of a choice in the matter). There could be some kind of breakdown or decay of your current home to the point that you either have to move or you have to make bigtime and major repairs to your current home.

We could also look for a Neptune transit to those areas. Neptune causes us to dream of the ideal or the perfect place – a utopian paradise, if you will. The problem here is that when we awaken from the dream, we may discover that this perfect and ideal place is not at all what we thought. So, one must try to be very grounded. It would probably help to ask others if what we are seeing is correct. But, also Neptune does not necessarily provide the motivation to take action and move. We might just spend a lot of time dreaming about Oz.

An eclipse could also indicate a move. Eclipses are Uranian in nature, however. The unexpected happens, and it is not possible to predict what will happen. Nevertheless, one of the possibilities of what might occur if say your Moon is eclipsed is that you will make a move.

I have made two major moves in my life. I’m calling them major because they were both moves out of state a great distance from where I had been living, and because they were significant and long-lasting. One was one year after a lunar eclipse in opposition to my natal Moon. And, the other one was when Uranus entered my fourth house (and conjunct my IC). It was opposed by Jupiter. What happened (astrologically) when you made major moves?
