Venus is in Gemini

In Gemini, Venus is devoted to
intellectual pleasures.  This can mean
anything from crossword puzzles to
lectures on Medieval candle magic.   

It's especially good for scintillating
conversation.  Everyone is wittier and
more interesting, and everyone is
quicker to respond to your ripostes.
(And they're ready to repost
everything you write, too.)  

And yes, it's a good time for puns.  
Try to control yourself.    

Venus will be in Gemini until July 4.

What does the
moon's sign tell

Moon Signs and
Lunar Transits

Saturn is in Scorpio

Saturn is the planet of structure, duty and
responsibility, and Scorpio is the sign of
transformation.  Saturn is about setting up new
systems, and Scorpio has a tendency to go to
extremes.  And so this is not necessarily an
easy combination.  But there is a lot of power
unleashed while Saturn is in Scorpio, and it can
go towards deep, meaningful change.

This is a time when people will be drawn towards
things that are usually taboo.  
There’s a fascination with whatever is
mysterious, unconventional, or raw.  So people
will deal with sex, death, money, power, and
other topics that they usually avoid or fear.  
Underlying emotional responses will be more
visible:  resentment, hunger, suspicion,
paranoia.  When you deal directly with these
things, you release a lot of old, stuck energy,
and so these intense feelings are gateways to

Everyone gets in touch with their inner devils, to
some extent or another, and everyone is also
required to work out a deeper moral code. What
is good and bad, what is right and wrong, when
you’re truly being honest with yourself,
recognizing what lies inside your own heart?

During the next two years, some things that are
quite risqué now may become accepted and
even respectable, while some things that are
commonplace now may be widely rejected.  
People who look wild and crazy may be totally
conventional or even straight-laced.   And
people, more aware of their own contradictions,
may become a little less quick to judge others by

Saturn will be in Scorpio until December 23,

Uranus is in Aries

This is the revolutionary planet in the revolutionary sign, so
you know some stuff is going to happen while it's here -
mainly, during the next seven years.

This is about liberation.  It's about freedom.   It's about
looking at the fixed structures that rule our lives, figuring out
which ones limit us, and dismantling them.

There's a fast, reckless rhythm about Uranus in Aries;  it's
not always the wisest approach.  There's an urge for
immediate, spontaneous action, and so people rush into
things without stopping to think.  Every moment is charged
with creative fire.      

It's pretty exciting.  But it's definitely not a calm influence.  
Everyone will need to stop and take some deep breaths
once in a while.

Uranus will be here until May 2018.

Pluto is in Capricorn

Pluto has to do with the slowest, most relentless
and most inexorable trends.  In spite of being
demoted from planet status, it's still very influential
when it comes to social transformation.  

As soon as Pluto entered this pragmatic,
restrained ascetic sign, the economy took a very
different shape.  Everyone switched from spending
and speculating to worrying and saving.  The
emphasis is on what works, not necessarily what
feels good.

This is a long-term conservative influence, but the
word "conservative" can mean a lot of different
things.  It could mean conserving the land, and
becoming better stewards of the earth.  It could
mean conserving the wisdom of our elders.  It
could mean looking to the people who have spent
their lives developing practical skills and asking,
"Okay, how do we do this?"

Pluto has been in Capricorn since November 2008
and will be here until March 2023.  

The Current Lunar Cycle
(0° Sagittarius)

The Sagittarius new moon is a good time to begin
ambitious projects.  It’s not a time to think small, and
whatever you begin now should be connected with
your larger goals, ambitious and dreams.  This fiery
moon rewards a heroic, adventurous approach. The
planets in the new moon chart are arranged in a
bucket shape, with Jupiter as the handle, so this is a
time when you can go beyond your usual limits.  

At the same time, the strongest aspect at this new
moon is the Mercury/Jupiter square, so there is
some tendency to talk, plan or promise too much,
more than you can possibly manage.  You may say
things you wouldn’t normally say (or write) during
this lunar cycle, and end up way over-extended.  

Be especially careful not to sign anything without
thinking carefully about it, and running it by your
most practical friends and advisors.  This is not the
best lunar cycle to buy a car, a computer, or a plane
ticket;  everything may be more complicated and
expensive than usual.     

With all this fire, though, you can have fun.  The
energy is passionate, tempestuous and excitable,
and so  lots of interesting things can happen during
this lunar cycle.  You can express yourself, you can
be creative and playful, you can have adventures.
You can laugh, and that’s good, because sometimes
you may need to laugh at yourself.   

This lunar cycle lasts until the next new moon on
December 21.  Its climactic moment is the full moon
on December 6.   

The new moon occurred

in Vancouver: Sat, Nov 22, 4:32 am  
in London: Sat, Nov 22, 12:32 pm  
in Singapore: Sat, Nov 22, 8:32 pm

The sun is in Sagittarius

With the sun in this fiery sign, things get
exciting.  As always at this time of year, it’s a
good time for parties, celebrations, feasts, and
community events.  Sagittarius is enthusiastic,
gregarious, extravagant, and optimistic, but
there’s some tendency to go to extremes (in a
friendly and good-natured way).

This is also a good time for travel.  People are
eager for all kinds of new experiences, and
they’re more willing to get away from the usual
routine and do something wild and
adventurous.  Everyone is thinking bigger.  

People who are normally idealistic are now
thinking of ways to save the world, and they
want to jump into this world-saving business in
an active way.  People who are normally
cautious and prosaic are reconsidering their
more outrageous impulses.   

The sun will be in Sagittarius until December

Neptune is in Pisces

This could be a time of beautiful spiritual flowering,
a time when large numbers of people open up
their hearts and connect with each other. The
idealism of Neptune becomes deeply intuitive,
emotional and sympathetic when this planet goes
through Pisces.

The matter of faith is likely to be paramount as
Neptune goes through this sign.  Who and what do
we trust?  People will have a stronger need to
believe in something (or someone), and this can
mean that some folks will be preyed upon by
unscrupulous con men. A gullible populace isn't
always good at picking leaders, so it will be
important to talk as clearly and fully as
possible about all the issues of the day. Open
communication is important and protective during
this period.      

Neptune is the planet of the strange, so things
may take odd turns.  Everyone will be a little more
susceptible to illusions, confusion, fascinations,
and poetic deliriums.  New drugs could make an
appearance – both medicinal and recreational -  
and new healing techniques be developed.  
Creativity is enhanced by Neptune in this sign,
especially when it comes to rhythmic forms like
music and poetry, and to the arts of illusion such
as theatre and film. We could see the flowering of
some amazing new art-forms.  

Religious institutions get new life from
Neptune’s passage through Pisces, but only if they
offer a true connection with the wisdom of the
inner self.  It’s not a time for dogma, but for
breaking down all artificial divisions and merging
with the infinite.  

Neptune will be here until March 2025.

Mars is in Aquarius

The planet of will and action becomes more
independent and free-spirited in Aquarius.  You
have a stronger urge to experiment, a desire to
venture into unknown territory.  

The urge to learn new things is strong, and this is
not just a mental but a physical desire.  You want
to pick up new physical skills, and you may be
particularly drawn to the kinds of sports that
happen in wide-open spaces, like wind-surfing,
mountain-climbing, or ice-skating.  You want the
wind in your hair, while you master some new
skill.  And it’s a plus if not too many other people
know how to do it.

Your sense of style is more pronounced under
this influence.  People are less likely to be fashion
slaves, more likely to figure out something that’s
uniquely their own.  Some people will be quirky,
while others will be downright eccentric, and a few
will get thrown in jail for running naked down the

It’s a very creative time.  Because there’s very
little interest in conforming, everybody is coming
up with interesting ways to express themselves.  
Inventors are more inventive, scientists are more
inspired, and artists are more avant-garde.   

Mars will be here until January 12.

Mercury is in Capricorn

Everybody is a bit more realistic, more
pragmatic and more skeptical during this
influence.  For those who are already
practical and business-like, much can be
accomplished.  For those who generally have
their heads in the clouds, the benefits of
structure become a bit clearer.

However, Capricorn is a very serious sign,
and sometimes pessimism can be part of the
equation.  If you’re normally prone to
shadowy thoughts, then everything could
look a little grimmer during this time.  It’s not
as easy to turn to fantasy, or to fool yourself,
or to take refuge in denial.  Everything is
clearer, more definite, and more physical.  It
is what it is.

At the same time, this is a very grounding
influence, and it can help you build
something new.  You need a solid foundation
in reality before you can construct something
which will last.  Mercury in Capricorn gives
you that. It helps you define your goals,
gather resources, work out a strategy, and
take the first small steps towards improving
your life.  What’s better for the New Year?

Mercury will be here until January 4.

The Next Lunar Cycle
(0° Capricorn)

There’s some concentrated energy during this lunar
cycle, with a five-planet stellium in Capricorn. This is a
time to grow up and take responsibility for the things that
have happened in the past, even if you’ve been trying
really hard to ignore or deny them.  There’s no getting
around them these days.  Whatever you’ve sowed, you’
re reaping it.

As you work on cleaning up your act, you realize that
you’re not only processing your past, you’re creating
your future.  You’re trying to live in a way that won’t
create waste, suffering and regret.  This takes a lot of
attention and discipline, but that’s what this lunar cycle is
all about.

It may be the holiday season, but this new lunar cycle is
very serious in mien.  It could be a beautiful time,
however, if you can relate to age and experience.  It
could be time to listen to the older people among you,
and to hear their stories.  You might want to leaf through
the photo albums, or sing the old songs, or eat the
dishes your grandmother once cooked.

Venus and Pluto are together at this new moon, so
relationships are more intense during this lunar cycle.  If
you’re dealing with some serious topics, it can be good
to get together with the people you love, and discuss the
underlying emotions.  It could be scary, but it could also
bring you closer.           

This lunar cycle lasts until the next new moon on January
20.  Its climactic moment is the full moon on January 4.   

The new moon occurs
in NYC:  Sun, Dec 21, 8:36 pm
in Vancouver:  Sun, Dec 21, 5:36 pm

Jupiter is in Leo.

Jupiter enters a new sign yearly, so this could be
considered the astrologer’s New Year. Jupiter’s effect
is to expand the characteristics of its sign, and Leo is
an exciting, courageous fire sign, so the coming year
will be particularly active and stimulating.  After the
sometimes claustrophobic wetness of this last Jupiter-
in-Cancer year, Jupiter in Leo feels like a nice long
stretch in the sun.  

Jupiter in Leo will give everyone more confidence, and
will encourage creativity, play, and risk-taking.  People
who are already effusive and energetic will become
more so, and shy people will start to come out into the
open, and let themselves be known.   We’ll all be
warmer, friendlier, more effusive, and more generous
with each other.  

This will be a great year for artists, since Leo is such
an expressive sign.  If you’re not already an artist, you
could try your hand at
whatever’s around:  dance troupes, theatre groups,
karaoke bars, origami collectives, puppet shows, guitar
lessons, improv nights, sculpture workshops, anything
at all.  You could take your harmonica and become a
busker, or teach your dog to talk and become a star on
YouTube. During the coming year, you have a stronger
urge to be seen and heard, to let more color and
drama and pleasure into your life.

Not everybody can be in the limelight at once, and
sometimes this can be a problem when Jupiter is in
Leo.  When everybody wants to be the center of
attention, there can be a certain amount of pushing
and shoving.  Pride is more pronounced, and bruised
egos can set up a squall.  As a fixed sign, Leo is
stubborn, so try not to back anyone into a corner.    

While Jupiter is in Leo, there’ll be a lot more posturing
by people in authority. Decisions will be made that are
all about preventing the loss of face, even if that
means losing battles.  Even when you don’t truly
respect someone, it’s best to grant them as much
dignity as possible, and this will help with working
through conflicts.   

Jupiter will be here until August 11, 2015.

The sun enters Capricorn

Capricorn gives maturity, gravitas, and a stronger sense of
responsibility.  After the rather hectic energy of Sagittarius,
people are more grounded and realistic when the sun is in
Capricorn.  When it comes to the holiday season, people
suddenly remember that these are actually traditional
religious holidays and that shopping is not the main ritual

This energy really lends itself to the turning of a calendar
year.  That’s mainly because it’s a good time to check in
with yourself, to see how well you did in 2014, and to make
plans for the coming year.  Your ambitions are stronger and
more definite, and you can figure out viable strategies for
achieving them.  

It’s a good time to make friends with structure, however you
want to do this.  Structures can be about security and
protection, but they can also be frameworks for success.   
Working with structures requires discipline, and most
people are more disciplined when the sun is in Capricorn.  
Structures need sustaining walls and a clear form, but the
most successful ones will also have plenty of room for light
and air.

The sun will be in Capricorn until January 20.

Mercury enters Aquarius

Let the genius in you emerge, while Mercury is in Aquarius.  
This is one of the best signs for Mercury, as it stimulates new
ways of processing information, perceiving the world around
you, and relating to people.  You’re excited about all kinds of
new information, whether it’s theoretical or more practical.  You
want to know about science, and people, and the laws of the

This can also bring out the geek in you, if you’re inclined that
way.  If you find yourself carefully studying the designs of Star
Trek spaceships, it may be time to go outside and get some

This sign is very creative, and especially good for mastering
new tools and techniques.  It brings out the inventor in you,
and it also brings out the avant-garde artist.  It means daring
to be different, to get away from the usual forms and to invent
new ones.  It’s a somewhat more cerebral and experimental
approach, but it’s great for challenging assumptions.  

This Mercury sign generally makes for good communication,
since it gives a genuine interest in other people and their
ideas.  However, it can also mean being a bit opinionated at
times.  Once you decide you know the truth about something, it
may be hard to sway you.  If you’re generally more malleable,
you may be surprised at the number of disputes you get into.  
If you’re already an argumentative person, there could be one
debate after another.         

Mercury will be here until March 12.

Venus is in Capricorn

This is not the most congenial place for the planet of
pleasure, but there are some benefits.  You can
experience the pleasures in getting organized, in
accomplishing important goals, in adding more
structure and accountability to your life.  

When it comes to relationships, Venus is more
pragmatic than romantic in this sign.  Even if
you’ve just met someone, you may find yourself
talking about life-goals, and making plans to
introduce them to your parents.  This could dampen
the mood, but it could also expedite matters, if you’
re both looking for something beyond the moment.  

Capricorn is an earth sign, so this is an excellent
time for creative work that emphasizes structure,
such as pottery or architecture. It’s good for reusing
old materials, and it’s also good for going back to
more traditional forms.  You may find yourself mining
your older work, looking for possibilities that you left
behind.  Capricorn is a sign that hates waste, and
that uses everything in multiple ways.

Venus will be here until January 3.

Venus enters Aquarius

Venus’ time in Aquarius is exciting.  The planet of
love, romance and pleasure finds all kinds of
interesting possibilities in this experimental, creative
sign.  When it comes to love, you could find someone
new, or you could try new things with your existing
partner.  You might go out and check out some scene
that you’ve always been curious about.

Friendship is especially emphasized by Venus in
Aquarius.  You really want to connect to friends,
learning all you can about who they are, and you also
want to meet new people.  You’re drawn to people
who are creative, scientific, knowledgeable, clear-
headed, and culturally aware.  These are the kinds of
people who cause you to question your assumptions.  
At times, they can shock you, but that’s because they
carry an idea further than other people do.   

For artists, it’s a time of enhanced creativity.   Your
work is more cerebral, more likely to contain a
message, but your audience is open both to new
techniques and to radical statements about the world
we live in.    

Venus will be in Aquarius until January 27.

Saturn enters Sagittarius

Saturn is the planet of structure, duty and responsibility,
but it cuts loose a bit in Sagittarius.  Sagittarius is
expansive, and so it lends itself to bigger, more ambitious
structures.  You want to create systems that are solid and
lasting, but that will fulfill some of your larger ambitions as

You see your responsibilities as part of a larger picture
these days.  You’re thinking about the community as a
whole, about the future, about the world you live in.  And
this gives a little edge of excitement to mundane plans.  

Rome was built brick by brick, with great attention to
structure, right?  And when it was done, there it was:  a
gorgeous, cosmopolitan city.  You’re thinking that some of
your structures may have the same grandeur when they’re
done, and you’re willing to put time and attention into the
process, to make sure that they’re the best they can be.  
You can defer gratification, but you don’t want to deny
your visions.  

During the years that Saturn is in Sagittarius, there will be
an emphasis on thinking internationally.  People who have
lived insular lives will become acquainted with a lot of
people who are very different from them.  Languages and
cultural literacy will become serious business, more
codified. There will be classes, exams, promotions, on the
basis of excellence in these fields.  

Higher education itself will grow in prestige during this
period, and more people will also get college credit for
traveling.  They’ll go off to distant parts of the globe, and
learn from people who have figured out efficient and
sustainable ways to live on this earth. There will also be a
lot of tourists out there, visiting parts of the planet that will
vanish or change utterly as the climate changes.  

Saturn will be in Sagittarius until June 14, 2015.  Then it
will go back in Scorpio for a few months, before returning
to Sagittarius for the next two years.
