July is the month to administrate well all the projects that were planned or started this year. Now they get form by refining details and how things are done based on experience. These experiences dictate the direction of those plans because now you know better which things work and which don’t. Whatever seemed to be erratic or out of control takes shape. Things need to be ordered, follow the rules and routines. Focusing on the final goal is crucial to be able to focus on today’s details.
New businesses move easier. It’s important to keep a clear vision and goals as much as deadlines to achieve those goals. Now you feel better prepared to face the twists and turns of the daily battles because your mind is clear.
This is also a month where relationships strengthen or become oficial, in business and in love. Maybe you found the perfect person to be your business partner or your spouse. Whichever is the case, you must be absolutely clear about what it is that you want and what you’re looking for so you can take the next step with conviction. This month you’re looking for a connection because you’ve been alone or feeling lonely for a while. To achieve this, you must not be afraid to show your sweet and noble side. You have noticed that your strong side establishes a protective barrier that scares everyone away, specially those you’d like to keep close and have shown to be worthy of it. Obviously, this is not something you do with everybody, but you must try it with those whom you’d like to attract. Give yourself the chance. You’ll be surprised. Continue reading
The New Moon always invites to let go of those things that limit you. It also invites to plant the seed of a new cycle. Like all seeds, this one has the potential of a result. Maybe a tree comes out of it, a plant, many fruits, but maybe nothing happens. To achieve what you want, you’ll have to work hard for it and provide the seed with what it needs to germinate. This lunation provides an opportunity of introspection to be sure of what you want and what you need. What do you need to love yourself more, to be self-sufficient, to feel stable and safe? This is a time to do those things that give you a sense of safety and stability, to realize how valuable you are and where your personal treasures reside. It is important to identify how are you of value for others, for a business, or a project. What do you bring to the table, what can you offer, how can you maintain it or improve it? What is important for you? Which and where are your boundaries? What are you willing to negotiate and what not? This are the questions you need to make to be sure of the chosen path, the relationships you should nurture, and the projects you’ll focus on.
Mercury Retrograde in Taurus and the Sun in Taurus support this introspection and prevent certain matters to be rushed so they are properly revised until the answers and decisions made provide a sense of certainty. Taurus likes to move slowly, but firmly. What’s important is to maintain what has been already achieved, to not lose what has been conquered. Remember always what you have, not what you lack. How? Being grateful. Gratitude makes you conscious of what you have. It’s a quality of inner stability.
Look for your sign to know which aspect of your life needs to be nurtured, maintained, and valued until May 20: Continue reading
The last time there was a New Moon in Taurus was on May 17, 2015. During that time, you began to leave behind those things that made you feel comfortable and fulfilled your needs but was not taking the other into account. And since Taurus is a fixed sign — better known as stubborn — and an Earth sign, it is more difficult to let go and change. Just as the Sabian Symbol describes at the end of this post, this is a moment to live and work in community for the common good. That’s what this Full Moon in Scorpio is about and its effects last until the next Full Moon in Taurus, on May 6. With this Full Moon you realize that in order to overcome obstacles and conquer that obscure territory in front of you, you must join forces with others that have the same goal and motivations as you do. This are alliances of power, complementary relationships — one has what the other lacks — and create a powerful mechanism which is difficult to destroy. It’s crucial that you know what resources do you have and how you are of value. The same goes for the other. That way, both can unite to complete a whole that helps both to achieve a goal. These alliances can be of two or more people, of course, but they are successful only if each one knows where they shine and where they need help, when they know their strengths and weaknesses. This is an act of vulnerability and it can be scary, but it’s necessary.
This Full Moon shows which are your fears, your inner demons, your mechanisms of self-deceit. It’s a painful process because something in you must die and transform in order to be reborn: a situation, a relationship, a behavior patter, a belief. That which must die gives you a false sense of security and certainty. Now you have grown enough to shed your skin and let go that which has already served its purpose. If you don’t let it go, it becomes a burden. This is something hidden, it’s not obvious and it hides where the true power resides. Don’t be surprised to see during these days the true power struggles and power games be revealed into the public eye.
Look for your Sun sign and Ascendant sign to see which aspect of your life needs to die, transform, and be reborn until May 6: Continue reading
The New Moon, the total darkness of the night, represents all the potential of the planted seed. This is the moment to initiate new intentions and new plans. Slowly but surely it will grow. Now you’ll begin to break free those aspects of your life that came out of a difficult alliance or relationship during the last Full Moon in Libra, which was also a lunar eclipse. That moment of crisis in your relationships helped to balance the relationship you have with yourself. Now it’s time to rediscover yourself, explore new things, and rediscover your identity. Everything you begin now will reveal its results in the next Full Moon in Aries, on October 15, 2016. The Aries-Libra polarity promotes to have healthy relationships with others without losing your own identity nor your independence. Use your instinct to trace new forms of projecting yourself to others: a new image or look, something new in your life to explore, or a new potential to develop. Be careful not to be impulsive nor egocentric. Now is the time to set strong footings for yourself so you can create strong ties with others.
Look for your zodiac sign to know which aspect of your life needs more independence until April 22: 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.
