You think you’re pretty smart, don’t you? Well, this week you may very well be, what with a couple of helpful aspects to Mercury. Mercury sextile Uranus and Mercury trine Jupiter aren’t aspects that shout their existence or slap you in the face to get your attention, but if you work with them you can get excellent results. Applying logic to your obstacles, making a clear case for your side of an issue, and thinking your way out of or… Read more

Both Venus and Mars are in Aries right now, which can lead to emotional impulsiveness. Have fun with it, but make sure your heart has a Designated Driver. Keep in mind that Mercury sextile Mars is still in effect, which means your communication skills should be sharp. Go ahead and talk someone into something (and of course, be careful with others who are trying to talk you into something). *** FRIDAY: Normally Moon in Scorpio on a Friday is an… Read more

(SCENE: A living room couch crowded with half-empty snack food packages. A PROFESSIONAL ASTROLOGER sits there in his pajama pants and a mustard-stained Doctor Who t-shirt. A cell phone rings, and after a brief search the ASTROLOGER finds it under a pizza box and answers it) ASTROLOGER: Hello…? (The ASTROLOGER holds the phone away from his head momentarily to avoid the angry shouting coming from the person on the other side of the conversation… his GIRLFRIEND) ASTROLOGER: Whoa, whoa… honey,… Read more

We regret to inform you that Valentine’s Day has been cancelled. Please return all candy and lingerie with the receipt for a full refund. Thank you for your patience. Ha! Just kidding. Yes, Valentine’s Day is Tuesday, and I’ll be covering the astrology of that day tomorrow. In the meantime, let’s not forget that there are a full six days scheduled for next week other than Valentine’s Day — and like it or not, you get to live through them…. Read more

Aiiieee!! Blood Moon! Queue the horror movie music! Okay, got that out of your system? *** Have you ever seen a Lunar Eclipse? It’s pretty impressive, and it’s little wonder that so many ancient people were a little (or a lot) scared of it, what with the bright Full Moon suddenly darkening and turning the color of blood. That’s the sort of thing that could leave quite an impression. Astrologically, an Eclipse leaves an impression of sorts too. When it… Read more

THIS WEEK’S PRO ASTROLOGY TIP: There is a Lunar Eclipse in Leo this week… panic now and avoid the rush! Okay, seriously: Mercury enters Aquarius on Tuesday, and in theory this should make both logic and creative thinking a little easier to pull off. For example, you could use those skills to point out to yourself that Eclipses can have a powerful effect on your life, but that they rarely trigger anything that day, and you’ve lived through plenty of… Read more

Venus boldly marches into Aries just in time for the weekend, bringing with it some relatively non-Venusian qualities. You see, Venus is a sweet girl but often she’s a bit of a wallflower. Once in Aries though, she suddenly gets all assertive and (by traditional standards) a bit “un-ladylike”).  But you know, sometimes that sort of thing is okay. Necessary, even. So if you’re tired of just lying around and counting on the hope that what you want will find… Read more

This month’s big astrological news (other than the ongoing Uranus-Pluto square and the Jupiter-Uranus opposition, which is why the world’s floor boards are making those strained creaking sounds of late) is that there will be two Eclipses. February 10th’s Full Moon is a Lunar Eclipse happening at 22 degrees Leo, and the New Moon on February 26th is a Solar Eclipse at 8 degrees Pisces. I’ll have more on those events closer to when they happen, but (as astrology fans… Read more

Venus square Saturn is still in effect, which can put a chill on your love life and is generally better suited to making some cuts from your list of contenders rather than nurturing something you want to keep. When it comes to “making cuts,” nobody does it like Mars, which enters the Sign it rules (Aries) on late Friday night/early Saturday morning. Mars in Pisces was all sweet and stuff, sure. But ultimately Mars is more about the action than… Read more

We regret to inform you that that there is no “Daily Sky” blog entry today. No. Seriously. We were all really looking forward to it, because it was our understanding that (with Mercury sextile Neptune this week) there would be some particularly clever outburst of heartfelt communication. However, the philosophical chaos of the ongoing Jupiter-Uranus opposition and the emotionally chilling effect of the Venus-Saturn square (exact on Friday but influencing the entire week) have created some very unusual conditions. You… Read more
