Taurus is always full of new emerging desires, ideas, passions, and opportunities. Don’t put them aside. What they need are structure and patience.

Mars resides in Cancer all month and is in trine to Jupiter. Your energy level is strong as things begin to open up.

You’ll be able to handle a multitude of projects, options, and possibilities and all at the same time. Venus and Mercury are in Gemini by the second week of the month, and your ability to juggle will surprise you. Gemini energy is always capable of handling more than what seems possible and often with ease. Jupiter enters Pisces on the 14th, and the cosmic views show that your inner strength and fortitude are enhanced.

What is required now is faith. When you have it, things happen magically. Remember, you have to believe in attracting the support you need. The Full Moon in Sagittarius on the 26th trines Saturn and squares Jupiter. Your beliefs and ideals are being challenged. Don’t resist. Play with your possibilities, and the answers you are seeking will become clear. The invisible parts of your life, such as ideals and beliefs, have changed, affecting your choices. Keep your vision clear, and you will achieve your dreams.

Cosmic Views for Aries (March 21st – April 20th)

cosmic views
Aries is the initiator. It advances through inner motivation and is unafraid of cutting through the chaos. If this is not you, then remove the blocks of fear preventing you from owning your destiny. You live with impatience, an inner need to manifest your dreams, and if inspired, you can help others do the same. With your ruler in Cancer this month, it’s all about organizing your inner world and not so much about taking action.

Mars is at the base of the chart, and it’s challenging you to see what’s important. Don’t cry over what you don’t have. Focus on what you want and where you’re going. Jupiter enters Pisces on the 14th, and you get an extra guardian angel. Jupiter in the 12th house of the unconscious brings you invisible support and opportunity. If something happens this month, it will be unexpected. You gain control through how you respond to what happens, so think before you act. The Sun and Uranus are conjunct in your 2nd house of finance. Money is a focus now. You’re not good at saying no to yourself, but it may be a good place to begin.

Don’t run up bills for things you don’t need. It’s more important for you to feel safe and strong than have a new pair of jeans. Pluto makes a trine to Venus and Mercury during the first week of the month, and it empowers you. If you pay attention, you will gain a greater understanding of what’s happening now and in your future.

If you’re in a relationship, both the good and the bad will be felt strongly. Work on what’s important. The details will take care of themselves. If you’re single, you could meet someone or take a relationship to the next step.

Taurus (April 21th – May 20th)

Taurus has become a sign of transformation and change. That’s what happens when you have Uranus visiting for seven years. It shakes up your life, your beliefs, and your dreams. For the first week of the month, you have four planets whispering in your ear. They are all square Saturn, which doesn’t allow for short-cuts. You must do the work to get the prize. Uranus wants you more independent. Stop being in a hurry and learn like others – the hard way. Short-cuts are seldom the right choice.

Jupiter enters Pisces on the 14th, and friendships become important.  You like your friends around you, but your challenge is to pick friends that lift you, not bring you down. Having a good time is great, but not at the expense of your values. Jupiter in your 11th house helps you set goals. You’ll have guidance and help from others. Jupiter in Pisces is all about faith and support from above. It builds strength from the inside out. Early in the month, Jupiter trines Mars, and your energy level goes up. Enthusiasm is strong, and it’s a great motivational force. When you feel strong from within, you get results.

The Full Moon in Sagittarius and your 8th house reveals what needs to be changed within you. It’s time for a transformation. The emphasis this month is on you, no one else. There’s a part of you that loves to be selfish, and now is your time to use it to your benefit. Look at yourself and be critical as well as validating. See your strengths and weaknesses and fix what you can.

If you’re in a relationship, you’re going through a transformation together. Hopefully, it will make you both stronger. If you’re single, you’re either ready to take a relationship deeper, or you could fall in love with someone new—all good.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

Gemini is a challenging sign. If you didn’t do the work required by Taurus, which identifies your values and desires, you won’t be clear on what you want. As a Gemini, that’s a problem. Unless your path is clear, your restless energy takes over, and it could keep you from accomplishing your goals. For the first week of the month, you have four planets in your 12th house, and two of them are square Saturn.

You may feel powerless or unable to get things done. Don’t push. Step back and look at the whole picture. If you can let go and realize your power comes from how you respond, more than what you initiate. By the 10th, both Mercury and Venus are in Gemini, and you’ll feel a greater sense of control. With Mars in Cancer, in trine to Jupiter, your money issues improve, and how you earn your living may come from a new source. If it doesn’t happen immediately, it could arrive as a future opportunity. The message is, you’re ready to expand and try something new. You may be afraid of losing control, but you’re ready to open up and restructure your boundaries.

Saturn stations retrograde on the 13th, so don’t schedule any meetings on this day. Things may change or be canceled. But don’t panic. It doesn’t mean whatever you’re trying to do won’t happen. It just won’t happen on that day. The cosmic views reveal the Full Moon on the 26th, in your 7th house of relationships, brings any lingering issues between you and your partner to head. Don’t get upset. It’s there to help you resolve what you don’t want to look at. So, meet the challenge head-on.

If you’re single, it’s not a good time to meet someone unless you want to rescue them from a crisis. If Superman is your role model, it may just work for you.

Cosmic Views for May of  2021 – Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

Cancer energy is private. These souls don’t open up to just anyone. With four planets in the 11th house for the first week, finds them mingling with friends and making plans. There’s a strong emphasis on not being alone.

Don’t hang on to the past, something Cancer’s love to do. You can make anything feel safe once you get used to it. Jupiter enters Pisces on the 14th and challenges you to acknowledge your highest ideals. What ideas lift you and connect you to your higher self? What ideals give you a sense of purpose? Take a moment to think about what they mean to you.

If you’re in a relationship, things have improved, but not all the wounds are healed. However, you have a new lease on life and how you feel about those you love. This is a source of greater happiness. If you’re single, it’s a great time to meet others through friends. Put yourself out there, and you may be surprised.

Cosmic Views for Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

Leos know who they are and what they want. What they need to pay attention to is their direct style and sometimes need to be right. When you don’t listen to others, others don’t listen to you. It’s a simple as that. With your Sun in Taurus conjunct Uranus, Venus and Mercury, you feel the push to make changes in friendship and relationships in general. Saturn squares the Sun helps you examine what’s not working and why.

Saturn is the best teacher, but it tells you the way it is. So get ready for the truth. Jupiter trine Mars adds energy to you, both physically and mentally, and it helps. When you’re too critical, you have less impact. The Full Moon in your 6th house of work brings issues around your everyday schedule to the fore. Take a good look if you’d like an improvement.

The cosmic views show that Pluto is in trine to Venus and Mercury for the first two weeks of the month, and you feel in charge and clear on your mission. Saturn squares the Sun, and Uranus offers something other than change. You can put it off for a few weeks, but eventually, things shift, with or without your consent. Venus and Mercury enter Gemini and your 12th house by the 15th. Your intuition increases, but you’ll have to rely on your faith and not something definite.

Don’t let that slow you down. The cosmic views remind you that there’s nothing more powerful than intuition when you get used to listening to it. Jupiter enters Pisces on the 14th, and your ideals and goals get expanded. It’s been 12 years since it was in this sign, so it’s time to take a look and adjust the past to fit where you are now.

If you’re in a relationship, things are challenging. Your partner doesn’t know how to reach the new you. If you’re single, it’s a time to meet a lot of people through friends. Don’t get discouraged if “The One” is not a part of the picture.

 Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

Virgos are both extremist and very practical. Once they accept a person or concept, they take the relationship or the idea to the enth degree, revealing its truth. Get out of your comfort zone, and people and ideas reveal their core. With four planets in Taurus in the 9th house of ideals, your purpose and passions are on the table. These four planets on earth make a trine to your Sun in Virgo and Pluto and the Moon in Capricorn.

You feel powerful and guided from above. There is a strong desire to act and take charge of your destiny. Do it; go for what you want with faith in yourself. When you do, the magic happens.  Jupiter enters Pisces on the 14th, and relationships improve. It’s easier now to get in touch with others and to build partnerships, either in business or personally. Jupiter squares your 10th house of career, showing you where change is necessary. By the 10th of the month, Mercury and Venus are in Gemini, your house of career.

With the Sun and Uranus conjunct in Taurus, change is inevitable. You see what’s missing, what’s been necessary to advance, and suddenly the path is clear.

Once you know where you’re going, it’s so much easier to get there. Saturn goes retrograde on the 23rd and is square Venus, the Sun, and Uranus: new ideas are difficult to manifest. The path is not easy, but the magic happens if you take your time and do the work. The Full Moon on the 26th in Sagittarius emphasizes the home. You’re changing from within, and that leads to new paths.

If you’re in a relationship, it’s also about to shift. If it’s good, you’ll feel more connected than ever before. But if you’re single, it’s time to meet your soul mate.

Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)

Libra is seeking a truth that does not change. What it needs to learn is how to see it in all its disguises. Just because you’ve changed your clothes doesn’t mean who you are is different. The challenge of Libra is to recognize the truth behind its many disguises. With four planets in your 8th house, in trine to Pluto and the Moon, there is a desire for power and to be in control. Some things in your life have become difficult, but the challenge will pass if you just stay focused and do the work. Jupiter enters Pisces on the 14th, and your work schedule expands.

If you haven’t been working, you will. If you are working, then who you work with and how you do your job will have some adjustments. Saturn stations retrograde on the 13th, and you feel restrained. It’s for your own good. Right now, it’s important to advance one sure foot at a time.

Here’s what the cosmic views say about your personal life. The Sun and Uranus conjunct in Taurus is pushing you to make personal changes. Just let more of who you are out, and don’t protect your talents and the quirky sides of yourself; they add to your power and personality if you can own them. Mars is in your 10th house of career for the whole month. The focus is on your goals and getting closer to that dream.

Trust yourself, be prepared, and don’t be in a hurry, even if everyone else is. Rely on Saturn and its need to get things done right…before it advances. Mercury and Venus enter Gemini by the 10th, and when Jupiter enters Pisces on the 14th, it makes a square to both of them. Get a feel for what you want before you act.

If you’re in a relationship, things should be going well. Both of you are working hard. If you’re single, it’s a good time to meet others in unexpected places. Just be yourself.

Cosmic Views for Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)

Scorpio is a sign that many don’t understand. Perhaps it’s because it’s all about owning your power. That’s something that very few of us do well due to a lack of good examples. However, if you know who you are and where you’re going, it’s a lot easier to stay connected to your truth. If you’re still figuring yourself out, then it’s a challenge.

Scorpio is a sign of strong instincts. When in doubt, listen to them. With four planets in your 7th house, your relationships are both supportive and changing. The Sun Uranus conjunction is bringing in new people or changing the ones you have relied on in the past. With Jupiter entering Pisces on the 14th, your sense of self is empowered. The control that is so important to you will be available without difficulty. The cosmic views say that it’s time to embrace your path and your destiny.

Saturn in Aquarius stations retrograde on the 13th, and communication and your sense of freedom are interfered with. It’s temporary, so don’t panic. Just look at what’s being revealed. It’s something you need to look at. Mercury and Venus enter Gemini by the 10th, and Jupiter squares both on the 14th. It’s time to make personal changes or at least expand and embrace a bigger picture. The Sun Uranus conjunction is changing both you and any relationship you’re in. There’s a need for freedom and the ability to do things your way. You have control issues, and change is not something you love.

If you’re not in a relationship, you have endless opportunities to meet various interesting possibilities.

Don’t try and avoid whatever comes up. You can’t. Something you haven’t wanted to expose may show its face. Just accept it and move on.

If you’re in a relationship, it’s a bit crazy at the moment. You’re being asked to expand and change in some way. If it’s not what you want, speak up. But some compromise needs to be made. If you’re single, it’s a time to explore, not commit. Keep your options open for now.

Cosmic Views for Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

Capricorns know how to get the job done. They’re not in a hurry, so it gets finished right.  The impatience of youth has been conquered, and wisdom takes its place. With four planets in Taurus and your 5th house this month, your ego and sense of self are emphasized. No more hesitations on taking charge. It’s your duty to lead when everyone else is procrastinating.

With the Sun conjunct Uranus, your natural sense of independence is enhanced. The first week of the month makes you resistant to anyone imposing on your space.  Stay away from situations where you may have to compromise. Pluto is in trine to the SunUranus conjunction, and you feel you have the power, even if you don’t. If you’re working on a project that needs a leader, you’ll get it done.

The need to share your thoughts becomes more important. Express your point of view because you see things differently than others. They may not agree with you, but they need to hear what you have to say.

If you’re in a relationship, you’re together and in agreement on the changes in your lives. If you’re single, don’t be afraid to approach someone and introduce yourself. It will be well received.

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

Aquarius knows how to connect to people who are very different than they are, and because of this, they’re not afraid to show their differences.
