AriesSun In Aries

With Mercury Rx in your solar 12th house, it’s time to go ‘in’ and listen to your dreams. Your imagination can go wild, but not your bank card. Window shop, yes; spend, no. Ease into a practice of listening to higher guidance. What messages are welling up? Watch for synchronicity, tune into feelings and... receive.

Romance: It's like a wild animal right now. No sudden moves.

Career: Ease off the gas. It'll move forward without your prodding.

Well-being: Sleep more. Rest more. Relax more.

TaurusSun in Taurus

Mercury retrograde for you is a time when you usual groups and friends turn into a herd of wild horses, all galloping off in different directions. Nothing predictable or controllable here. But that's OK. Allow for a new view when it comes to social connections, online and off, and find ways to relax amid the chaos. Golden opportunities emerge when you aren’t looking.

Romance: Instead of red roses, suddenly you have playground duty. Roll up your sleeves.

Career: Imagine reaching your true goals and aims. Vision is everything.

Well-being: Cardio is best, if you are fit. Otherwise, long walks and root vegetables.

GeminiSun in Gemini

Career, mission or profession can feel like a dream time journey, or maybe a speck of light at the end of the tunnel! For the next three weeks, you let go of trying to micromanage your future or ‘make things happen.’ Let your control freak have a holiday and relax so the universe can open new doors.

Romance: You'll be attracted to anyone in authority right now. It's a phase, so make no binding commitments.

Career: If you have to make changes, on fell swoop is best. Scrutinize everything before signing.

Well-being: Best results come from meditation. Ease mental chatter. Let go.

CancerSun in Cancer

Travel or study plans turn into the slip-ups and verbal missteps, the trickster's playground. Take deep breaths. It's not about forging ahead right now, but finding peace and serenity in the midst of contrast. Take time out to reconsider your world view. Is it what you think, or what you are expected to think?

Romance: Dynamic people excite you right now. Look before you leap.

Career: Import/export and social media revenues drop for a time. Don't panic. You KNOW what the public wants.

Well-being: Good for starting a fitness program you actually believe in. Be adaptive.

LeoSun in Leo

Mercury retrograde in your shared resources sector has you reconsidering joint financial arrangements, loans, grants, and funding. As you sift through the possibilities, look for places to adjust. You get to decide how this goes, but not yet. Let it marinate for a while. Meanwhile, go have fun.

Romance: Deep, meaningful raves, connections of the intense and intimate kind fuel your fire. Allow for mystery.

Career: Sort any debts, owed or owing and find ways to easy out of the red. Baby steps are fine.

Well-being: Immerse in water where possible, baths, Jacuzzi, pools, rivers, oceans. Consider a liver cleanse.

VirgoSun in Virgo

Communication with partners, practical or intimate, goes a bit zany, muddled and/or blurred! It’s not the best time to come to any conclusions as wires are crossed, thoughts misunderstood. Use your gut feelings to make choices that can’t be delayed. Reflect on your relationships without judgement.

Romance: If you're thinking of couples counseling, now's a great time to start.

Career: Reconsider collaborations and biz partnerships. Strong ones thrive. Weak ones are on the way out.

Well-being: Drop any attempt to martyr yourself. Delegate. Asks for help. It's not all up to you.

LibraSun in Libra

Mercury retrograde through your well-being zone says reconsider your lifestyle. Is this really what you want, or are you there because of circumstances ‘beyond your control?’ (ha!) Take stock of your nutrition, exercise, health care, comfort and routine. Start with what you believe about your body, and listen.

Romance: The couple that works together stays together. Find common goals and live them.

Career: Put your mind to the little day to day things that fuel your highest ambition. Are they fun? Make them so!

Well-being: A health issue at this time suggests you're not living your highest excitement. What toleration can hit the curb?

ScorpioSun in Scorpio

This is a time to go into cruise control in the creative realm and practice the art of allowing. Think play, recreate and relax. Consider where you can expand your beliefs and live more in the ‘now’. The goal is to drop judgment and experience life in the red hot moment. And it will be red hot when you stop worrying.

Romance: Couples that PLAY together stay together. Ratchet up the fun!

Career: Speculation can be good, especially if you are going back over previous ground. What can you adjust or tweak?

Well-being: Anything that boosts your qi, makes you smile and lightens the load is the panacea. Take it!

SagittariusSun in Sagittarius

Turn your thoughts inward to home life, family and symbiotic connections. If you have enough ‘me’ time to appreciate recent inner growth you'll also have plenty to give. Ask what TRIBE  means to you. And your home? Is it set up to be the perfect sanctuary you require? Listen. Love. Reflect!

Romance: There's a grudge to release. Once you do, enjoy the blue skies.

Career: You have to take control. It's not working, working for others who don't appreciate your gifts. Find a way.

Well-being: Amp up self-love and nurturing, especially if you are suddenly expected to take care of others with little notice.

CapricornSun in Capricorn

The master of Freudian slips,  your tongue, pen and keyboard go out of control. You say one thing; they hear another, oh my! Emails, sans body language, are misconstrued. Sending text msg without punctuation is a disaster unless you double check. Do revise manuscripts and rethinking any form of communication.

Romance: You may run into an old flame while visiting familiar haunts. Some people do change. Test the waters.

Career: Rethink your process, creative or practical. You're missing a core value that wants to help.

Well-being: Find flexible thoughts that let you go with the flow. Drop the oars and float out to sea!

AquariusSun in Aquarius

Use this time to get in touch with what really offers a sense of peace and well-being. It may mean letting go of outmoded ideas, people or core values that fuel nonproductive thoughts. Awareness is always the first step. It will lead to skill and talent development that is more authentic than you thought possible.

Romance: Enjoy light flirtations and playful banter. This is no time to nail anything down.

Career: Back up everything. That means, every single thing.

Well-being: Passive actions work best, starting with blessing the food you eat, water you drink and loving your body.

piscesSun in Pisces

Mercury retrograde tacks through your birth sign, asking you to take a look in the mirror. Reflect on what you believe about your self, what you do, where you do it, whom you do it with. Set an intention to notice the things you like about your life and smile. And then, Exhale worries away with each breath, inhale peace.

Romance: You ooze attraction and allure, 24/7. Do with it what you may.

Career: Hold back until next month to launch anything new. In the meantime, brainstorm with an open mind.

Well-being: Listening to the body makes all the difference. Do a body scan, and get the message.

Medical Astrology

MedicalAstrologyHi everyone,

Let’s jump in straight in with a few key points on the ancient practice of medical astrology. And then for or a direct experience, listen to the Astro-Body Scan guided exploration.

The Zodiac in Medical Astrology

First up, each sign links to a particular part of the body, starting with Aries ruling the head and ending with Pisces ruling the feet. Although focus can be placed on powerful health indicators like the Sun, sixth house and the Ascendant alone, it helps to remember that we all have the twelve signs of the zodiac in our charts. By looking at the houses and their associated signs from a health perspective, we can learn about our needs for vitality, and genuine expression in the various areas of life.

Notice how this approach can answer questions about how best to strengthen and nourish our natural energies as we acknowledge each sign according to house position. Understanding what it means to have Aries in the fourth house, as opposed to Taurus there, can lead to a more fulfilling home life, and quite possibly the reduction of any unexplained fevers or headaches. Discovering the difference between Capricorn on the Ascendant as opposed to Gemini can initiate a more creative access to the outer world, and minimize chronic lethargy, depression or problems with the knees and joints.

Looking closely at the signs around the horoscope and how they currently express is one way to ascertain what is not right in life and make meaningful adjustments that lead to a greater sense of well being. By honoring the individual needs of the signs through the houses, the door opens to natural vigor, energy flow and zest for life. Think of it as your own, personal feng shui for well being.

Remember, we are looking at the body and any “dis-ease” or lack of balance as a message, not a diagnosis. Use astrology to approach health in a more holistic way.

For example, the sign Cancer rules the stomach

This water sign has to do with making connections, feeling nurtured and ‘needed’ by others. If my stomach is upset, my nurturing life may be out of balance. With that knowledge I can start to ask the right questions such as, “Am I feeling loved. Am I looking after myself?” Particularly, I look to the HOUSE ruled by Cancer. Am I giving and receiving love and nurturing there? In my own chart, it’s the 11th house so I might ask if I’m feeling loved by friends, or if I am in groups that resonate as my clan or tribe. In this way, tummy trouble helps me look at my life in a new way. The alternative is to take an antacid and hope for the best.

Another good example is a headache

The head is ruled by Aries, the sign of independence and action. Aries likes to initiate projects, start the ball rolling and above all, be the boss. If I get a headache I ask, where am I not being independent and assertive in my life? Where have I taken a subordinate role when really I want to be top dog? I look at the house ruled by Aries to suggest where I really need to be the boss. I can assert my healthy aggression there, or I can take an aspirin. You see how this work?

If we treat aches and pains and even life threatening diseases like spam and ‘bulk delete/treat’ without reading the message, a great opportunity for true well being is missed. Knowing the medicinal zodiac can help highlight were in the chart (in the life) something has gotten out of balance and how honoring the sign ruling that house can be restorative.

Again, Medical Astrology is informative and fascinating, but never a substitute for proper self care and medical attention where appropriate.
