Horoscope for the Week of December 14, 2003

13 December 2003

Tip of the Week:

Astrology is an art and a science. The science part finds its basis in Astronomy the reality of planets in relationship to one another, in their respective orbits around the Sun, from the perspective of the Earth. Beyond the many stars, constellations and other galaxies, the primary focus is the planets the wandering stars. The fact that all the planets orbit around the Sun, solely with the 12 constellations of the Zodiac as their backdrop, from the Earth's perspective, is why they are the foundational constellations in Astrology. The planets and constellations are then put on a map and angles of relationship or "Planetary Aspects", largely based on 30 degree multiples, e.g. 30, 60, 90, 120, 150 and 180, connect the planets. These multiples indicate electro-magnetic frequencies.

That this map is a "Mandala" is not arbitrary. A mandala is, basically, a circle divided into 4 parts, or 8, or 12 or more. The circle is like an orbit of a planet. We divide seasons and phases of the Moon this way four seasons and phases. Include the four elements and you have the nuts-and-bolts of the science. The art part is the interpretation of these planetary relationships as they reflect realities of character, behavior and timing of events and evolutionary flow in people's lives - and Astrology does reflect these realities with remarkable accuracy providing useful insight, affirmation, inspiration and vision.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

You are on the verge of some important breakthroughs in your life. Giving new definition to your place in the world is a part of the plot. To this end, you are learning new skills and strategies. Some of these may simply be available to you through new daily activities and rhythms. Ideally, you are aware of the remarkable insights coming your way. If so, can you see how you can make them a part of a new norm in your daily life? This may include new friends entering your stage and possibly old ones leaving. In any case, look to the big picture, yet with both feet firmly on the ground. Say yes to another layer of personal power!

Taurus (Apr 21 - May 20)

Letting go of the old to make way for the new continues in full force. Such processes take time and this is a lengthy cycle, yet the past few months and weeks have probably been pivotal. Overall, this process represents a quest for new expressions of your personal power. Letting go of old beliefs that possibly support and even promote manipulative tendencies on your part or that of others is key. Do not allow defensiveness and/or pride to blind you from this possibility. There is a law of returns and honesty is a wise investment. Acknowledge the needs and rights of others and assert your own, diplomatically.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)

Developing a greater degree of confidence and independence on relationship fronts continues. You are quietly and deeply reviewing and weighing who you are at this stage of your journey. What and whom you truly need is key. This means recognizing the difference between needs and wants. While meeting wants can be pleasurable, they are superficial in light of needs. Neglecting the latter for the former could have a painful backlash eventually. Honor your process as one of developing inner strength and wisdom. There are rewards for these attributes, namely peace of mind, more confidence and a deeper sense of security.

Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 21

Creating a healthier lifestyle is now in focus. By either your own needs and experiences or those of others, opportunities to learn about cultivating a healthier lifestyle are central. To this end, you do well to see potential blind spots and to be open to advice. You are growing and changing and so too are your needs. Are you open, strong and flexible enough to integrate new habits? The health revolution is slowly turning away from treating disease towards preventing it, like the good old days. Join in and reveal your personal power by associating pleasure to healthier lifestyle habits. Your family will be happy you did!

Leo (Jul 22 - Aug 21)

An expansive and creative cycle continues. I hope that you are making good of this cycle. Acquiring new skills, information and insights is the basic goal. This is your best chance to catch the waves before this tide pulls out. Travel opportunities over the next couple of months are also in focus. This is a good time to explore new horizons. Strategic thinking and planning now will prove successful. The more you can emphasize your willingness to genuinely serve, the better. This theme will increase over the next several weeks. Face any fears you can identify to break through to higher ground.

Virgo (Aug 22 - Sep 23)

New inroads to increase your overall lot in life continue. While money and possessions are likely parts of the plot, so too is freedom. Exercising creative thinking and sound judgment, rather than defending your position and being judgmental, is key. While this may sound obvious, are you doing it? You have a powerful and probably tricky mind and it can fool even you. A core aspect of your destiny is to learn humility and true service. Avoid matter-of-fact thinking. Watch the quality of your attitude and tone of speech. Ask questions and be open to the answers. Lend your critical analysis to your own constructive ends.

Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 21)

You are learning many valuable lessons at this time. Some of these may be stressful. The core lesson is faith. The balancing theme is discernment. You are learning that some traditional sources that you trust may not be as reliable as you would like. This may be prompting you to explore new avenues. Within this process may be the seeds of future studies and possibly even new career directions. It is likely that circumstances and other key players are supporting and/or pushing you to consider alternative routes. Change is the law and this includes perceptions and self-concepts. Play along!

Scorpio (Oct 22 - Nov 20)

Acquiring new knowledge and insights continues as a core theme. Opportunities to progress quickly in this regard are available. I hope that you are making good of these gifts. Some of this learning is coming from good friends and may include forming new friendships and/or deepening existing ones. Learning to access the wisdom of your heart through intuition is central. Letting go of limiting beliefs about what is possible is key. This involves taking risks and a willingness to negotiate new terms. New deals and contracts are likely. Activate your creativity and pursue inspiring leads.

Sagittarius (Nov 21 - Dec 20)

The sobering process of expanding your horizons continues. Expansion usually includes effort and risk. Increasing you earning potential is key. While finances are likely in this regard, they link with skills and basic earth wisdom. Old perception patterns of what is possible and of what you are capable of doing are up for review. In the process, you will eliminate old attitudes and explore new directions. Do what you must, in the short term, simultaneously deepening your focus on more long-term directions. You can do what you love and receive ample returns as long you pursue a vision with patient determination.

Capricorn (Dec 21 - Jan 19)

Making your dreams a reality includes having a clear sense of what they are as well as allowing yourself to have some. Excessive opinions about what constitutes reality and what is realistic can block you. It is true that success usually requires plenty of time and effort. Is that such a bad thing? No one can just give you success and trying to get it by devious means of any kind is not really success. Appearances are deceiving. We cannot buy inner peace and happiness; we must earn these crown jewels. Look closely at semblances of success and failure and you may find the opposite of what you see!

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 19)

Exploring deeper meanings of the word freedom continue. If you look closely enough, you will discover that many popular notions of freedom are not it at all. In other words, freedom for some and bondage for others is not true freedom. We are all one humanity, one family, one soul. Do you believe this? Such truths are core aspects of your destiny. This is why Aquarian Abraham Lincoln holds such a prominent position in the hearts and minds of so many people. Freedom has many levels and is a challenge to achieve, but achieving freedom in once sense or another is a core aspect of the work, you are here to do.

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

Expanding your position in the world includes expanding your vision of who you are and what is possible. You are on the verge of some exciting, if revolutionary, experiences in this regard. Working with others and exploring new tools and technologies are likely approaches. The time has come to bring some of your bigger ideas and aspirations down to earth. This includes taking some new initiatives. Your ambitions are growing and this will be especially evident with the onset of the New Year. Plan to take full advantage of this energetic charge with focus, patience and determination.
