April 2019 Horoscope

Bigger, better, bolder. The active, energetic and impulsive Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, symbolizing new beginnings and bringing with it a boost of energy (which I'm sure we all needed). April 2019 comes with a chance for most of us to reflect deeply on who we are, what and who makes us happy and what our purpose is within the world. Communication may feel more energized and possibly aggressive, and the pace of your day-to-day may go from 0 to 100 real quick. A full moon in Libra toward the end of the month provides balance and asks us to consider the relationships around us and helps us get what we want through charm and grace.

January 2019 Horoscopes

january horoscopes 2019As we close the door on what was a perspective-shifting, reflective 2018, we open a bright, shining door to a brand new year, a fresh start, a chance to implement your new ways of thinking into a new routine. January is the perfect time to really start putting thoughts into actions and setting up for what will be a very exciting year.

 

ARIES:

Everything to do with your career, your success, and your purpose is brought to the forefront this month. That new year vibe has got you feeling and looking fresh, making for the perfect opportunity to communicate with your boss, your colleagues or potential business partners and start setting things up for the future. You may also feel like you're in more of a position to attract your right kind of love. You've got the power!

 

TAURUS:

Venus (your ruling planet) enters Sagittarius this month, proposing that you dive deeper into the meaning behind your romantic relationships and the way you think about love and sex. Is sex a performance? A task? A bind between two souls? An outlet for frustration, desire, or connection? Whatever it is, this month is a great time unpack those emotions, and maybe try something new. Overall, this month is full of exciting new experiences and many memories to make.

 

GEMINI:

That old cliché saying 'new year, new me' really comes into play for you this month Gemini. Your perspectives regarding your love life, intimacy, and outward success will be challenged and of foremost importance to you. Be wary of creating unnecessary friction or disruption of power between you and your other half.

 

CANCER:

January welcomes all Cancerians into the new year with a positive looking month. This may be a great time to tune back into your work-mode and start considering any new and exciting career ventures or ideas… the energy in your workplace will be a great space for cultivating this. You're also getting a clearer understanding of your connections to those around you, what they mean to you, and what you mean to them. Remember to avoid holding onto relationships if they do not serve you anymore.

 

LEO:

With the turn of a new year, Leo's will find themselves placing importance on their daily routines, health and wellbeing, and concerns regarding home life. Maybe you overindulged during the festive season? Stick to those new years resolutions and integrate some healthy habits into your routine. Your romantic relationships are full of energy this month.

 

VIRGO:

Financials in all senses will seem effortless this month, but be careful to not become too free-spirited with your spending. This year you have a great potential to uncover your creative expression and that which makes you, well, you! Spend some quality time with yourself this month, journaling and reflecting on what you believe you are here on this earth to accomplish.

 

LIBRA:

Time spent with loved ones and around the house will be of great emotional benefit to you Libra. However, you may also find yourself magnetic to social groups and social settings. Communication with others takes an exciting, perspective-shifting turn. Health and financial wellbeing are great this month.

 

SCORPIO:

Full speed ahead Scorpio! January welcomes you into the new year with an active mind and a busy social schedule. Communication flows easily but relationships with those that are near and dear to you may have some friction. Compromise and a clear understanding of others will help you through any sticky situations this month. Financials are also great this month.

 

SAGITTARIUS:

With many planets floating in your sign including lucky Jupiter, energetic Mars, and sensual Venus, your January will kick off the year full of excitement and possibility! Now more than ever you have the chance to use this boost of energy to set up career advancing, social boosting, spiritually and morally aligned projects and goals. The key is to tune in to your emotional self and make this a sanctuary. You may be feeling extremely sensual, but be wary of getting too fired up and creating power tension with your partner.

 

CAPRICORN:

Now more than ever you have the energy and capacity to turn any new endeavors or projects into a reality. Capricorn's have the ability to put in the hard work to get where they want to be, but this process needs to include the mental, emotional work that drives your success. Why do you want to achieve this? What purpose does achieving this goal serve to your higher self? You'll feel like your in a comfortable position to make changes, both physically and emotionally throughout the month. Keep yourself active to avoid the restlessness.

 

AQUARIUS:

Spend time outside this month Aquarius. Nature often provides you with your spiritual and emotional insights. The end of 2018 may have been super draining, so take this month to rest, recover and reflect. Your intuition is a powerful thing, and if you listen to it enough, you'll know exactly when to address certain issues with those around you.

 

PISCES:

If you've had any ongoing issues regarding your career or work over the past few months, then January 2019 will bring the perfect opportunity for you to work through it. Your personal style,  aesthetic and social standing is good this month which is stemming from your unusual desire to develop a strong outward self. Get out there and make new connections, network, and express yourself in whatever way you see fit.

December Horoscopes 2018

December Horoscopes 2018

december horoscopes

We wrap up the last month of 2018 with the presence of the planet of life lessons, Saturn, guiding us through each aspect of our life and asking us to think deeply about the way we connect with others, the way we make money, the way we love, and the way we express ourselves and think creatively. Mercury goes into retrograde AGAIN until the 20th, making communication with others and with your higher self a little more strenuous than usual, but this will conclude with a developed sense of perspective. Remember to take adequate rest during this busy period, and enjoy the simple pleasures in life!
 
ARIES:
Our planetary system continues to shake things up, weaving in and out of different signs and in and out of retrogrades, so don't fret if you feel your emotions suddenly shift! Aries may need to overcome irritation with others up until the 20th when Mercury seizes its retrograde. During Mercury's retrograde period, it is important for you to be patient with your loved ones, your natural urge to take the lead instead of potentially helping guide others can be tested here.
You've got a lot to reflect on coming into the new year, remember to keep a level-headed perspective. Morning meditation and the odd self-care-day is the perfect opportunity for you to look within and talk to your higher self about what you want to achieve this coming 12 months.
 
TAURUS:
You're gaining momentum this month Taurus, aspects of your life such as your career and romance will seem to gain unexpected opportunities… so I say, seize them, girl! But don't get too excited just yet, you may find yourself questioning your passions and possibly feeling a little confused about them. Remember not to resolve this by putting up walls and pushing your loved ones out, they may always help provide an insight you may never have thought about.
 
GEMINI:
You may feel like you're speaking a language no one else can understand while Mercury, your ruler, is in retrograde until the 20th. However, Saturn appears in your chart around aspects of talents and money, which may help you to consider your core values and what you truly stand for, and as you start to make this clear to yourself, this may help you communicate what you want. Particularly listen to those who give you wise advice.
 
CANCER:
This month, Saturn asks you to assess, evaluate, and put in the work to reap the rewards. You may find your position within your social circle, opportunities for love and for career may arise, only if you are willing to dedicate time to them. Take some extra time and care to work through any sense of confusion you may have. As the end of the month approaches, you'll want to spend time around others, both your nearest and dearest and possibly with some new friends.
 
LEO:
This is the month to let your thoughts run free, you never know where they may end up! Embrace that wild, passionate, creative side, Leo. You're feeling ready for new and exciting experiences from the energy of Jupiter in your chart, which may take shape as a job promotion, job change, or new plans both professionally and personally. Your hard work in the small areas of your life are starting to pay off, the routine can be boring, but you're starting to see its benefits!
 
VIRGO:
Jupiter appears in your chart, bringing excitement for new experiences and a zap of motivation to exercise your talents or skills. This may feel a little out-of-character, embracing your creative and impulsive side. However, by taking risks and stepping out of your comfort zone, you'll find great pleasure and reap rewards for it. Romance and relationships may also become important to you this month.
 
LIBRA:
As the year winds down to an end, so do you. Slow and steady wins the race, and you're ready to sit back, relax, and enjoy the view. This might be a great time for you to work on any business ventures or ideas that you can develop in the comfort of your home, such as writing, or making art. Don't fret if you find the words aren't coming to your head as easily as you want them to, you'll start to feel more direct with your thoughts from the 26th. Spend the end of this year reminding those what peace and relaxation means.
 
SCORPIO:
This month Scorpio darlings show their devotion to their word and may provide great insight or inspiration to others. Make those around you proud by seizing your opportunities, the next few months may turn into an exciting professional future for you. It's important for you to be aware of your health and don't get too festive too fast, take adequate rest, and spend time with loved ones.
 
SAGITTARIUS:
Happy birthday Sagi darlings! Your zest for life, positivity, and expansive mindset will be magnetic to friends and loved ones, so jingle and mingle baby! With all this inspiration and excitement, Saturn appears in your chart, reminding you to stay humble and grounded. You will achieve some form of success, whether that be travel, learning something new, developing professional success, or building a strong social identity. Happy days!
 
CAPRICORN:
The stars are the limit Capricorn, or are they? Think big this month regarding your career, let your creative and intuitive side have a say in where you want to work and what you want to work for. What drives the work you do? What purpose does it serve to you? Take time this month to keep all aspects of your life in balance, the busy season tends to throw them out of whack. Don’t stay alone with negative thoughts, and reach out when you need it.
 
AQUARIUS:
Personal development, particularly in regards to your health routine and career will become important to you this month Aquarius. Make this whole month about you, and do exactly and only what makes you happy… ok? Maybe you've been thinking about developing a new skill you can apply to your work? New interests are starting to emerge this month. You'll soak up inspiration from all around you like a sponge which may drive some exciting developments in the next few months!
 
PISCES:
Pisces can smell magic in the air from a mile away. Endeavor in creative pursuits and over time you might find great success in the development of feelings or earning money. Your sensitivity to your intuition will help you when it comes to embracing that which you cannot control. Although, the festive season can often mean blowing your savings, so monitor spending wisely.

This is a great month for action and progression Taurus!

Family and emotions take a back seat this month, but love life prospects seem positive and supportive. You'll be inclined to focus on your health this month, so it might be a great opportunity to change your diet or cleanse.

 

GEMINI:

Gemini, you may find the need to deeply consider the aspects of your career and work life, do you truly love what you are doing? Is there something that needs to change?

LEO:

Be wary of any family issues and avoid getting involved if it's possible. Regardless, your need to creatively express yourself shines through this month!

 

VIRGO:

Virgo! This October you may find yourself considering your emotions and self-esteem and whether it is tied to the opinions of others.

It's also a great time to focus on your mental and physical health.

 

CAPRICORN:

You have a knack for setting goals and working towards them Capricorn, but don’t be afraid to take a step back every now and again to reassess how effective it is. Your career or public image may be areas in your life that are receiving a lot of attention. Is this attention directing you in the way you want it to? Now is the time to reflect and plan for the future. Despite your big focus on your career this month, love life will most likely be harmonious.

Diving Into Your Curiosities : The New Moon in Gemini

Diving Into Your Curiosities : The New Moon in Gemini

Diving Into Your Curiosities: The New Moon in Gemini

“I’m really scared that..”    

“I’m kind of pissed about..”

"I think I'll go crazy if.."

The chatter of strangers surrounds me on the patio of a bar in Queens as the balsamic moon in Gemini comes to a close in the sun-setting sky above me. The unfinished sentences of others gracefully fade into the beats my headphones provide a safe space. The talkative, open book minds of the people around me make plenty of sense, Gemini season having been in full swing for weeks now, electrifying both our thoughts and tongues.

People are speaking candidly about their feelings and hunches, with Gemini’s ruler Mercury currently residing in the emotionally laden sign of Cancer. The cancerian complex is deeply rooted in both fear and worry, so it’s no wonder that this new moon’s ruler Mercury in Cancer has our minds feeling a little anxious for whats yet to come in these crazy times.

The beautiful thing about a Gemini new moon is that it’s rather freeing.

Gemini is the first of the air signs, making it newly aware of the social aspects of society, while simultaneously being somewhat detached from situations (in an observant, onlooking, learning kind of way) than perhaps our earth and water sign pals (who are more feeling and body experience based).

The lunar slate being reset in such a playful, curious sign allows for a big breath of fresh air to enter our lives.

We’re given the opportunity over the next month to set ourselves free from our current state by learning to incorporate something totally new. Gemini season is ideal for getting involved in classes of all kinds, and this new moon is bound to be firing up our desire to explore new passions or follow our curiosities about subjects we’ve always been interested in but never tried.

Break out now and try something brand new. Let your thoughts run you wild until you have to write, you have to create, you have to break out of the shell of your habits and incorporate something more playful and freeing.

Get in touch with your friend groups, the ones with true authenticity. Share what you’ve been exploring or learning about with them. Have you always been curious about photography? Or wanted to write a screenplay? Wanted to take a cooking class? 

This Gemini new moon will now give you the dose of courage to step outside of your comfort zone and explore new subjects objectively!

We only get to know ourselves over time by following our hunches towards the things we're interested in. We become who we're meant to be by following our curiosities. Imagine Picasso never acting on his longing for a paintbrush?

This new moon is trying to remind us that we're all lifelong learners, for how else would we grow and continue to understand ourselves?

On the same day of the new moon, relationship Venus moves from homey Cancer into romantic Leo, revving up our relationship engines considerably. Venus in Leo is fiery, romantic, and needing adoration and praise.

Picture a beautifully lit restaurant full of charm and ambiance. The wine is divine, beautiful music plays at the perfect volume, a chic and sexy outfit adorns your body. Your lover gazes at you across the table like you’re gods gift to man, with candlelight glimmering in their eyes.  Welcome to Venus in Leo, baby.

Venus in Leo will have us all needing more attention, praise, and pets in our relationships.

When Venus is in Leo, we cannot bear to feel ignored or unseen, because we obviously feel like the finest thing to walk the earth. Our pride can become enhanced, as well as our narcissism, all things to keep in mind.

But Venus in Leo is also super fun, warm and vibrant, looking to go out and enjoy the nightlife. While Venus moves through the sign of the lion, treat yourself to some romantic nights out, or go see a play or put on your own!

Our need to perform can be heightened at this time, so perhaps its time to hit up that old open mic again and bust out your dusty acoustic? Or maybe just go catch a show if the stage isn't your scene!

 

Have a great new moon everyone!

Love, @MackAndTheZodiac
