Mexican Smalti Artist?
This week I will use the Virgo eclipse chart to write horoscopes. Depending on your location this partial solar eclipse will be happening late Saturday or early Sunday of this week. It’s difficult to predict the effects of an eclipse. Some eclipses that would seem, on paper, to be very consequential slip by without notice. Others change your life. All eclipses are grouped into families called Saros Series or Saros Cycles. This eclipse belongs to Saros Series 18 North. We know that this cycle of eclipses was “born” on February 4th, 1060, at 9:06 PM at the North Pole. We have its birth chart so basically we know its tendencies. The Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Pluto were all conjunct in the mentally fixed, rebellious, sign of Aquarius conflicting with Mars in the physically fixed sign of Taurus. This is a lot of tension brought on by inflexibility that taxes physical and mental strength. Pluto and Mercury are exactly conjunct and Uranus is on the midpoint of Mars/Saturn. Illness is one manifestation, with worry and obsessive thinking most likely accompanying it. There is something strenuous about circumstances being presented at this time. Perhaps we are overwhelmed with work at a time when our physical energy feels low. Physical concerns will most likely manifest.
If the eclipse occurs within close range of a natal planet its effects may be especially obvious. The most important consideration is the house placement of the eclipse. That tells you the area of life within which you will experience its effects. Solar eclipses tend to manifest externally, dealing with events surrounding you.
In this week’s horoscopes I will attempt to personalize the eclipse effects for your solar sign.
Have a wonderful week and thanks for reading,

ARIES (March 21-April 21)
Some mysterious inner healing has taken place that victimized you in the past. That’s being overwhelmed by something more “down to earth”, logical, and objective. You know who you are, where you stand, and what you can tolerate. Your methods within the realm of relationships have developed into something truly enlightened. Aries is in the process of developing an emotional framework that is sustainable for the long haul. A more grounded “at home” feeling with your emotional self moves you to a place of firmness. It is now possible for you to launch much more than you ever have in the past because you have developed the ability to be unshakeable. You can feel whatever you want to feel, go wherever you want to go, and do whatever you want to do without the prior fear of being thrown off your game.
Previous losses in love, rejection, and possibly some creative failures have moved you into a place of great personal freedom. It is becoming more and more difficult to scare you into anything these days. While you still have a ways to go when it comes to being flexible about creating the kind of future you most desire, whatever happens, it’s now up to you – totally. The eclipse in your 5th house loosens your emotional matrix in ways that clarify what you love and the kinds of methods you can employ to get you where you would most love to be. Guilt and perfectionism have run their course. It’s now time to switch into your most effective mode, using your most effective methods in service to yourself. It’s time.
Now that the romance is no longer new, the giggliness is winding down, and the heart-throbbing excitement is no longer of highest priority, you are on the cusp of a new phase. This Virgo eclipse is preparing you emotionally to be able to put in place a strong foundation for achievement, family, deep roots, and emotionally to be able to ask for what you need when you need it. Emotionally you may feel that you are standing on new ground that requires you to build a new and different kind of foundation for future achievement. Communication is key, as it always is for Gemini. Inflexibility regarding shared resources or sex and intimacy issues might represent an area where communication breaks down. Plan ahead and make an extra effort to develop good habits now.
Under this Solar Eclipse Cancers are being emotionally primed for the next phase. Since February of 2014, winding down is an intense focus on home, family, roots, the past, and your own emotions. Your mindset is shifting to a place of being able to recognize the best future options for yourself. In a couple months those may be presented to you in a form you will immediately recognize. Letting go of any feelings of victimization or guilt will facilitate the process. The fact is you deserve a bright future whether or not you previously believed it. Logic is telling you that some old inflexibility within relationships is no longer necessary and that you will be on your way in a couple months.
LEO (July 21-Aug 21)
Logic, communication, and current routines are telling you that some old inflexibility within your work environment or regarding your approach to work in general, is no longer necessary. Emotionally you are being primed under this Virgo eclipse for an approach to work that represents a more efficient and effective use of your resources. Put simply, emotionally you are being primed to make more money. Conserving your energy may now be possible. Working smarter not harder, delegating more, being more discriminating about those you rely on for support is important. Using what you’ve learned over the past year and a half about paperwork, communication, and the effectiveness of a cooperative mindset will allow you to expand your resources and to thrive financially.
The theme for Virgo continues. It’s all about making your life less perfect and a whole lot more enjoyable. But Virgo will never entirely throw caution to the wind. It’s not in their nature. Is it possible to develop a more flexible approach to life and the things you enjoy most while remaining self disciplined in the process? It seems for Virgo that it is entirely possible. This week your emotional matrix is scrambled in a way that allows you more freedom to pursue what (and maybe who) you love. It allows you to let your hair down, to tone down the guilt, and to live your life in a way you won’t regret. When all is said and done would you really regret a life full of joy and love? I doubt it. You are on the cusp of figuring out a new way to live that makes your old victim gig obsolete.
Libras logical mind may be telling them that some area of inflexibility within the home and family is no longer necessary. That is probably true. Whatever work you’ve done on your appearance, your whole style and approach to life, and your general strength and health, has indirectly affected your relationship with your family in positive ways. This Solar eclipse primes you emotionally for a period of introspection where the most effective methods for releasing an old way of being are instituted. Behind the scenes self-improvement, access to guides, sources of inspiration, as well as dreams and their interpretation will be enhanced. Being a victim within your place of work will end and emotional sources of poor health will be healed.
SCORPIO (October 21 – November 21)
In one way or another Scorpios will soon be coming out of the closet, entering back into the flow of life, socializing more, and exposing themselves to the scrutiny of others. A period of claustrophobic self introspection is about to end, but first they are being emotionally primed by the occurrences surrounding this new Moon Solar Eclipse. There may be the need to mend broken fences, to re-establish friendships, and to put more energy into areas that have been neglected for the past year and a half. Some of what’s been lost needs to stay lost. It’s up to you to be discriminating enough to know what deserves to be revived and what needs to stay dead and buried. By November you will be moving on to a new phase of engagement. Saying goodbye to your current work life or routine may be on the agenda.
Sagittarians are being emotionally primed by the events of this solar eclipse for a new emphasis on their career and how they wield power and authority in the world. New methods that represent a break from the past may surface. A narrower focus, more hard work, greater efficiency and effectiveness may be required. But overall this is a time of expanding success for you, new opportunities, growing positive public recognition, and rewards for past hard work. Self-mprovement within the realm of your public life is important to you. I predict you will build on what you’ve already built and continue to experience expanding success. My only suggestion is to figure out how to use your resources to complete a “bigger than usual” project over the next year.
CAPRICORN (December 21-January 21)
This Solar Eclipse primes you emotionally to address issues related to your future and possibly the future of your work life or health. By November you will need to be free of any mindset that created perfectionistic expectations, guilt, or the feeling that you were being victimized in some way. That process starts now. Currently some inflexibility regarding your style and approach to life, something that previously held you hostage is being questioned. Something that was previously a “given” – something you felt could not be changed, may be changing. Giving up on something related to home and family or your emotional security may be a necessity as you consider your future possibilities.
AQUARIUS (January 21-February 21)
Loss is a double-edged sword. It teaches you a lot about how unreliable and sad life can be, but also puts you in touch with personal resources that stabilize and sensitize you – resources you may not have known you had. Now is a good time to be able to call on those stabilizing, sensitizing resources, if for no other reason than to stave off the tendency to judge others harshly, to criticize, to put yourself on a higher level, looking down, and to feel disgusted. Life is hard and Aquarians may feel it less because of their ability to remain somewhat detached. That’s not to say you’ve been through less, though. Virgo is a humbling sign. The solar eclipse in Virgo may be humbling for you in some way. Embracing that would be a good idea.
PISCES (February 21-March 21)
Pisces is about to experience the exposure of a part of themselves they’ve been blinded to. It may relate to old anger or the failure to grieve for something that was lost a long time ago. Most likely the anger stems from old relationships that were very important to you, the loss of a relationship, or your dream of what a relationship could be. It’s a good thing. It will allow you to integrate parts of yourself that have been alienated for a long time. It will allow you to end the feeling that you’re never standing on solid ground or that you don’t have the power to direct your life toward something you desire. Most likely, by November, the relationships you value most will improve significantly.
