ARIES: This is a forecast period that focuses on your values, earnings, long-term financial picture, and the sharing of resources with another. The Sun and Mars head into your 2nd house of self-esteem and abundance. Whenever I find financial issues with clients, there is some unfinished business regarding self-worth and value. This is a time to focus on prosperity and abundance. Do you align with that energy? If not, please take a look at where the perceived limitations are lurking. This is a time when increased earnings and value for your money should be evident. The Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse takes place on the 25th. Full Moons seek to turn the light on and make us aware of feelings and circumstances. Eclipses are power charged and ramp up that energy tenfold, moving things along, out of our life, and into conscious awareness. This Eclipse occurs in your 8th house of taxes, loans, investments, shared property, psychology, corporate money, sex, intimacy, and sharing. A finale, culmination, and understanding are coming in these areas. This lunation is connected to November of last year and brings validation to developments that were undertaken then.
TAURUS: Your Solar New Year is upon you as both the Sun and Mars join Venus in your sign. Developments unfold rapidly now as you harness the awareness, ability to attract, and hutzpah to reach out for what is important to you. Awareness strengthens as Venus opposes Saturn on the 22nd urging a commitment and reality check in your relating and partnership area. The 24th can be a financially powerful day as Venus moves into trine with Pluto and brings educational, publishing, travel and media opportunities to the fore. The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurs on the 25th at 5 degrees of Scorpio in your 7th house of partnership, clients, professionals you hire, and competitors. A culmination or highlight occurs within any important connections. This Eclipse is connected to the November timeframe of last year and brings a level of validation. As this powerful lunation reaches out to the mothering energy of Ceres in Cancer you will feel the love and support you’ve been seeking.
GEMINI: The month leading up to your birthday is always a time for additional rest, reflection, and creating some space in your schedule. With both the Sun and Mars entering your 12th house of Taurus this week my message is doubly emphasized. Working behind the scenes can be especially rewarding, as you can be master of your time and energy. The 21st can be a day of breakthroughs as Mercury squares Pluto and highlights necessary resources (emotional, financial, or otherwise) and personal dreams. The Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse occurs on the 25th in your 6th house of work, health, pets, the care of others, and your day-to-day schedule. Lunar Eclipses are about awareness and this eclipse is tied to a health, work, or employee situation that was initiated in the November 2012 timeframe. Culminations, aha moments, chapter endings, and health situations are highlighted now. The Eclipse also reaches out in a supportive fashion to Ceres, which is currently transiting your 2nd house of values, money and self-esteem. Support, acknowledgment of your talents, and healing may be part of your experience now.
CANCER: We are heading into Eclipse season which always carries strong energy for the sign in which the Moon is ruled. A situation that was begun in the Fall of 2012 comes to some sort of fruition, chapter ending, and awareness. Lunar Eclipses are always about awareness and information of an emotional nature coming into the full light of day. This occurs on the 25th in your 5th house of creativity, children, romance, and leisure pursuits in Scorpio at 5 degrees. This Lunation reaches out in a very positive manner to Ceres, the Mother Goddess, currently traveling through your sign. The message is that whatever the circumstance support is there for you even if it manifests an internal sense of self-care, compassion, and what you need to do to take good care of self—useful! The Sun and Mars head to the social 11th house of Taurus suggests a time for initiatives with others (the more physical and energetic, the better), attending networking events, schmoozing, and scheduling more time with like-minded folks.
LEO: Career, ambition, public persona, and life direction are strongly highlighted as the Sun enters your 10th house as does Mars (until May 31st) this week when both ingress Taurus. You will be very engaged with your career or avocation over the next several weeks and Venus is ensuring that you do it with charm and panache. We are entering Eclipse season and have a Full Moon Lunar Partial Eclipse occurring on the 25th in your 4th house of home, family, soul, residence, parents, and security. This Lunation is connected the Solar Eclipse that happened in November of last year. Expect some awareness, culmination, chapter endings, clearing out, and decisive decisions to unfold in your personal and family life. Ceres, the asteroid that represents giving and receiving nurturing, reaches out in a positive and supportive manner from your 12th house of the past, secrets, family legacies, spirituality, and healing.
VIRGO: Communications are in the frame as we head into this forecast week. The Sun and Mars (until May 31st) ingress into your 9th house of media, travel, speaking, publishing, education, legalities, and spirituality. You need expansion in whatever form resonates for you. Taking in more of the world is imperative as your values, mind, and ego are traveling in tandem. We are also officially in Eclipse season, the ultimate game changer and manifestation time. On the 25th you have a Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse in your 3rd house of Scorpio at 5 degrees. What did you begin or initiate in the November timeframe? This Eclipse brings a level of culmination, chapter ending, awareness, and aha moments. The Eclipse reaches out in a supportive fashion to Ceres, the Earth Mother Goddess, which speaks to support, nurturing, and earthly comfort from your 11th house of groups, personal dreams, and technology.
LIBRA: Finances, long-term investments, debts, death, taxes, sex, trust, and intimacy (yes all of the biggies) are emphasized with your ruling planet Venus transiting your 8th house of Taurus. The Sun and Mars join her this week doubling down the transformational vibe of psychic connections, cycle endings, and taking stock of your self. Venus opposes Saturn and then trines Pluto this week. This sparks awareness of your earnings and resource management and provides support around home, family, and real estate. We are now in Eclipse season, which heightens the awareness as this lunation occurs in your 2nd house of Scorpio on the 25th. Earnings, talents, and self-esteem are due some very real acknowledgements from both self and others and are tied to any initiatives that may have been started in November 2012. This Eclipse reaches out supportively to the Mothering Goddess Ceres which is currently transiting your 10th house of reputation, authority figures, parents, career, and public life. Some form of support is heading your way.
SCORPIO: A personal situation is coming to a peak now as the Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipses occurs at 5 degrees of Scorpio on the 25th. Awareness of your needs and wants vs. others’ needs and wants is highlighted. Culminations, chapter endings, and validation occur as your sense of self, identity, and physical health are highlighted.

Both the Sun and Mars (until May 31st) join Venus across the hall in your house of partnerships, further highlighting the “me vs. others” theme and how others’ needs, feelings, and desires must be taken into consideration. I would suggest that you build in some space during this Eclipse to sort out your emotions. Ceres is blending nicely with the Lunation from your 9th house of belief systems, publishing, education, and travel, suggesting support and the feeling of being nurtured on some level.
SAGITTARIUS: Health, daily schedule, work environment, co-workers, pets, and your to-do list speeds up as both the Sun and Mars (until May 31st) enter your 6th house. This is the kind of transit where you wake up and board the “full steam ahead” train that pulls into your station of bedtime at the end of the day. Wow – time is traveling fast, right? Now, let’s beef up this energy even further by adding in a Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse in your 12th house of rest, research, contemplation, meditation, spiritual awareness, sacrifice, volunteerism, and the care of others. With Full Moons comes awareness; with Full Moon Eclipses comes awareness on steroids. Keep your schedule light if at all possible. This Eclipse is tied to situations and initiatives that were undertaken in November of last year. Validation, culminations, awareness, and chapter endings are the messages Lunar Eclipses bring. They tend to be more internal and emotional in nature as we process the cycles in our lives.
CAPRICORN: We head into another Eclipse period with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse happening in your 11th house of dreams, self-actualization, groups, team leadership, friends, and technology projects at 5 degrees of Scorpio. This Lunation is tied to the New Moon Solar Eclipse that transpired in this same house last November. Fresh initiatives, goals, and desires are now coming up for review, validation, chapter endings, and awareness. Full Moons are about balancing and in this case the focus is on your personal creativity and desires vs. the group mind. Ceres, the large asteroid that symbolizes support and nurturing, is making a positive connection from your 7th house of partnership, best friends, committed relationships, and clients. The Sun and Mars (until May 31st) join Venus in your 5th house of children, leisure pursuits, creativity, and fun. The focus is on ego assertion, charm, and being aware of your desires while having the confidence and drive to go after them. Those of you with offspring will find this a very active time.
AQUARIUS: Career and home are the areas of focus. The Sun and Mars (until May 31st) ingress your 4th house of home, family, personal life, personal security, parents, and residence, ramping up the activity levels in and around your domicile and with family members. Some intensity can be felt when Mars transits this area and can manifest as anger and edginess if left unattended. By that I mean the 4th house is “who we are when no one is looking” and you may be feeling assertive and lording it over the roost. On the other hand, you may be busy working from your home, in which case Venus can lend her hand at beautification and redecorating efforts. We are in Eclipse Season and a culmination is coming in your 10th house of career, public persona, life direction, and authority figures. What was initiated last November is tied to this Eclipse in Scorpio at 5 degrees. An awareness is heightened regarding the balance of your personal and public life but is receiving a supportive hand by the large Earth Mother asteroid Ceres, suggesting that support is available in your daily environment and from co-workers.
PISCES: A culmination, finale, or validation may be coming your way at the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your 9th house of publishing, media, marketing, travel, education, legalities, and spiritual connections. This Eclipse in Scorpio at 5 degrees is tied to fresh developments and initiatives that began in the November time frame of last year. Expect some sort of closure, answers, or chapter endings in these areas. Ceres, the large asteroid representing feeling nurtured and supported, is reaching out in a foundational way from your 5th house of creativity, passion, and romance to this Lunation and brings an extra positive element of emotional wellbeing. The Sun and Mars ingress into your 3rd house of speaking, writing, teaching, communication equipment, and commercial activity, bringing the need to balance your daily activities and internal dialogue with your more public communications.
