Heading On Out…

Finally, we get a bit of a reprieve; Mercury has gone direct, the big T-Square is breaking up, and for the first time in a long time we feel we can get up. We have endured incredible intensity of events, either in our personal lives or from seeing what is happening afar. But we made it, together.

Now we move into the quieter time of the year, reconnect with friends, and prepare to make ourselves comfortable for the rest of this year. With only two and a half months left of 2010, this is a year we’ll look back on and say, “Wow. This was the beginning of it all.”

I hope you all feel as fortunate as I do to live in this country; for all her flaws and slipups and neurotic media, we are a collection of souls in an area where a lot of caring occurs. Believe me, after my 6 years south of the border, I have returned with new eyes and a fresh appreciation of my home land.

As the weather begins to turn cooler, keep a cool head and warm feet. It is still a beautiful world, with more good than bad, more things that go right than wrong, and the luxury of having a dream.

Aries (March 21- April 19): Relief! This week begins as one of the most peaceful in a long time! The Cardinal T-Square is beginning to break up, Mercury has gone direct and is sending gorgeous signals to transformative Pluto affecting your sectors of work/health and career, respectively. It is likely you will feel better this week than you have felt in a very long time. Your Ruler Mars joins Venus this week in your sector of intimacy/shared assets. This gives you the focus and impetus to push forward on a joint project. Excellent!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Your sector of relationships is highlighted now with your Ruler Venus there and energetic Mars moving in this week. Wow. There will be an enormous amount of power in your closest relationships; don’t turn it into a power struggle! With the gnarly Cardinal T-Square out of the way, you are likely to feel much less pressured and that’s good, since you tend to balk under pressure. You will not be hurried! On the other hand, if you yourself want to hurry, that’s another thing.

Gemini (May 21- June 20): It’s official; the worst is over. As you prepare to settle in for the winter, you will find that magical flow again that you are accustomed to. Now that your Ruler Mercury is direct and receiving a direct and beautiful signal from transformative Pluto, something will suddenly right itself and you’ll be on your merry way! Your sector of work/health is activating as well, with Venus there and Mars entering this week. Time for the fitness thing! You’ll certainly have the focus.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): You find your feet now, and with powerful Venus and Mars joining up in your sector of creative expression, you are waxing artistic with something! You have your own brand of creativity and you are likely to uncover a new method of medium that lights your rockets (this does not apply only to “artists”)! Finally you are getting comfortable in your own skin again and able to extend yourself with gladness rather than under pressure. Lots of things to make you go “ahhhhhhhhhhhh” this week!

Leo (July 23 – August 22): Your sector of Home is lit up due to Venus and now Mars occupying it. You may be in the process of changing something that got stalled out, but it will pick up now and be carried out in a smooth fashion. Finally! Mercury has just gone direct in your sector of money and receives a powerful and beautiful signal from transformative Pluto; look for a change for the better in your finances in the near future. Celebrate! You survived the worst of year and now we can enjoy some smooth sailing for a couple of months!

Virgo (August 23 – September 21): Finally, Mercury has gone direct in your sign, and is receiving and transmitting a powerful signal from transformative Pluto who is in your sector of creative expression. This indicates something coming at you from afar; it could be from another country or a distant part of this country. If you’ve been planning something new in terms of networking, it will move forward now in a way that pleases you. Ride the wave; you deserve some really good stuff!

Libra (September 22 – October 23): Mercury has gone direct in your sector of Endings, and it is transmitting a powerful signal from Pluto in your sector of Home. This adds up to a New Beginnings phase for you, where you are determined to turn your life into an expression of who you truly are. You may feel rebellious and distant, but being a mental sign, you retreat into your mind when you feel extreme emotions. With Saturn in your sign, you have the power to organize, make your strategies and execute your plan relatively unencumbered. Finally!

Scorpio (October 24- November 22): Mercury is direct now, and receiving a strong signal from your Ruler Pluto. This kicks off a complete rethinking of friendships, relationships, goals and how to go about them. You like to go deep, but few can reach your depths since you have no fear. This week, however, you find the way to express that depth, whether it is in writing or some other art form. Venus and Mars hold hands in your sign now, and your sense of self is intensified along with your intuitive prowess.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 20): Well, Archer, you’ve hopefully come through the Mercury retrograde unscathed (not likely). That was a nasty one. As Mercury moves back into direct motion and receives a beautiful and strong signal from Pluto, you reach up and grab a star this week. Finally you have some targets in sight after a long and frustrating period (read “all year”), and you are able to once again move on out and conjure up some adventures! With Venus and now Mars in your sector of Endings/New Beginnings you are able to buck up, saddle up and move ahead.

Capricorn (December 21 – January 20): Mercury is finally in direct motion and receiving a gorgeous signal from Pluto, who is in your sign. This enhances your ability to see beyond your own circle and limitations in a way that is rare and beautiful. Venus and Mars are hand in hand in your sector of goals/friendships so you have a good support base and eyes to see what you normally don’t see. Wow, this is the beginning of a very auspicious time for you! Use your time well and don’t give yourself the luxury of a negative thought.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 20): Mercury is now direct and receiving/transmitting some very beneficial signals from Pluto; something has turned over, is finished and regenerating itself. Although it may have ended in a very inconvenient way, it is to your benefit. Keep your eye on the goal, focus on best outcomes and keep moving in that direction. Mars and Venus in your sector of career give you enormous leverage now, along with some strong intuitive blasts you would be well to pay attention to.

Pisces (February 21 – March 20): Mercury is direct in your sector of relationships, and with the signal it is now receiving from transformative Pluto who is in your sector of friendships/goals, you are moving into a phase of change and self-direction. Mars and Venus in your sector of career help you zero in on ways to advance that are normally inaccessible, so make your presence known in terms of moving upward. As long as you hold onto the vision and don’t get distracted, you’ll soar. Use your energy well!
