According to Plutarch, a soothsayer had warned that harm would come to Caesar no later than the Ides of March, the festivities for the new Roman year which started on March 15. On his way to the Theatre of Pompey, where he would be assassinated, Caesar passed the seer and joked, “The ides of March have come,” meaning to say that the prophecy had not been fulfilled, to which the seer replied “Aye, Caesar; but not gone.” Continue reading
The Total Solar Eclipse on March 8, 2016 occurs at 18º56′ of Pisces in the South Node in Pisces. It will be visible in Southeast Asia and the Pacific Ocean. By definition, a solar eclipse occurs when the moon is aligned between the Sun and the Earth creating a shadow on the planet. As seen from the Earth, the Sun “turns off”. Here the conscious, the ego, is eclipsed or “turned off” to reveal something about the unconscious. Because it happens on the South Node, this eclipse asks you to look and work on something about your past or your unconscious that you are not aware of and that now becomes an obstacle to progress and grow. This is presented as a crisis or chaos in some aspect of your life that needs to be put in order. Depends on which part of your natal chart is activated by the eclipse, it’s the matter to be solved. Today’s New Moon in Pisces and the last Full Moon in Virgo, which was on February 22, show us which things you need to leave behind and which things you need to develop in order to discontinue a stagnant part of your life.

During the month of March, use your leadership to create the reality you desire. You’ll notice that your plans and projects begin to germinate now. Take this moment to direct them towards success. This is an arcana of beginnings. Whether in love, studies, work, health or finance, the changes you experience now will open a door to something new. Of course, for this to happen, you’ll need to eliminate, conclude, or leave behind those things that prevent you from taking flight.
If you have postponed this change, this month will force you to do it. Not only there is a New Moon in Pisces on March 8, but also two eclipses: a solar eclipse in Pisces on March 9 and a lunar eclipse in Libra on March 23. Eclipses precipitate you to face a crisis in your life and make way for that change you want so much but fear as well. You’ll be obligated to confront any postponed situation regarding health, work, and partnerships. You must face fear and pain but if you know your strengths, you’ll succeed.
The arcana of The Magician shows you those innate gifts and abilities you have to face any situation and succeed. If something does not exist, you can create it like magic. Creativity and ideas are in the air. This is the moment to materialize them and shine. Take the initiative in whatever it is you want. You’ll also find creative solutions to your problems. The Magician favors commerce, negotiations, communications, travels, and curiosity during the whole month of March. Continue reading
#OscarsSoWhite has been making headlines for the last few weeks after no people of color were nominated for an Oscar in the acting categories for two years in a row. In honor of those non-white actors, here’s a list of the ones who have won an Oscar in the history of the Academy Awards along with their Sun sign and some observations at the end. Continue reading
The Full Moon brings to light all the things we planned, initiated, or planted during the last New Moon. Now that it enters the sign of Virgo, everything you have worked on since the last New Moon in Virgo (September 13, 2015) comes out to the light. Also, by eliminating certain behaviors, by polarity, the opposite is being developed. So when the Full Moon in Virgo ask us to “bring order to chaos”, it refers to a chaos that comes from the last New Moon in Pisces (March 20, 2015). Remember which things were out of control during those dates that provoked a crisis. And I say crisis because both March 20th and September 13 were days of eclipse and eclipses show a crisis we are experiencing. If you worked on those matters, you see the results today. If you brushed those matters under the carpet because you didn’t want to face them, you see the results today. This Virgo-Pisces polarity make us face those fears that have affected our daily life to the point of creating a disorder in our daily routines. During all this time, you restructured your life to accommodate for a new purpose — or even, your life purpose. If the form built is inadequate to contain that purpose or if the chosen purpose is unworthy of the form you built, then a crisis, abortion, or dissolution of that situation is the result during this Full Moon. Now you can see everything clearly as if seen through a microscope or a magnifying glass. Now you can smell the flower of the seed you planted.
See here how this Full Moon indicates which aspect of your life needs to be reorganized until March 8th: Continue reading
The Month of Love is not here to fantasize but to manifest into reality what you want. The task will be to develop fair and reciprocal relationships by agreement. In this category are friendships, partnerships, and marriage. Partners and spouses have a legal agreement, a contract, to either begin their relationship or end it. Legal matters are important now: contracts, selling or buying, trials, etc. What’s important is to learn and master the lesson: new harmonious ways to relate. The key word of the month is NEGOTIATION.
February is an excellent month to balance health, finances, and legal issues. Now it’s the time to present proposals, write, edit, and work on research projects. Simplify and balance that which is chaotic in your life. Handle problems with direct communication and swift action using prudence and wisdom rather than pushing to make things happen or by resisting or holding back. Imbalance is created by doubting, over-extending and depleting yourself. You must leave behind the tendency to create doubt, confusion and uncertainty by over-analyzing everything. Wait for clarity before taking action. Continue reading
All those projects and plans you have been working on during the year start running in August. Now the results of your efforts are under the spotlight: new products, launches, campaigns, recognition, a new love. This is the month to shine and be seen. Don’t be afraid to take risks both in business and in love. This is your chance to start from zero with lots of enthusiasm and vigor. Don’t let past bitter pills to tarnish your courage to begin a new life, but let them enrich your experiences and grow without losing the joy of living. Take some time to have fun, meet up with friends, take your inner child out to play. Let yourself be childlike again, at least for a day. Creativity grows. Any job related to arts, sports, and children will have a boost. Continue reading
June comes full of both pleasant and unpleasant surprises. The sudden changes of the month have the purpose of knocking down any false illusion of stability you’re attached to: a job, a relationship, your social status. If your sense of identity and self-value depend on it, the rug will be pulled from under your feet. The idea is that you should not be defined by what you have but for what you are. This is the chance to be yourself, so anything that is not you must go. If you don’t initiate the change, the circumstances will do it for you. It’ll be quick, unexpected. Probably it’ll leave you breathless, but it’ll serve as an awakening, a moment to finally see things clearly. You may want to renovate something: repair the car, restore your home, refurbish an idea or project. You’ll want to do it with yourself: start a new diet and exercise regime, end empty relationships, or leave behind unsatisfying behavior patterns. You may want to do anything that aligns with your true nature or takes you closer to it. Anything for authenticity. Continue reading
