What does the Combustion of Mercury, Mars and Venus mean for your Star Sign?
If you’ve been feeling rather frazzled of late, you can put it down to some extraordinary astrological patterns occurring right now. When planets transit near the Sun, their energy is affected and their electromagnetic fields are impacted by the sunbeams. This can cause changes to occur in the areas of life that are ruled by these planets.
Just recently the Sun has been in the exact degree of Mars and this will be causing havoc especially to the signs of Aries and Scorpio. Individuals born under these start signs can be forgiven for feeling debilitated, edgy, unable to concentrate and possibly even angry with their current circumstance. Shortly, the same intensification will take place for Taurus and Libra born natives. The Sun is also in proximity of Venus, the ruler of these signs.
Not only do these four-star signs experience the effects of combustion but all other eight signs of the zodiac encounter some sort of impact by this intense conjunction with the Sun. This combustion takes place in different areas of the horoscope depending upon your Sun sign or rising sign. Here’s a brief overview of these 12 signs and how the combustion will impact each and every one of you.
Your health may be adversely impacted by the combustion of the Sun. This is your principal ruling planet and is currently transiting your sixth house of health and well-being. This area also, therefore, demands extra attention to your daily routine, diet and the way in which you approach your work. During this planetary transit it is most important to listen to your body signals and rest when and if needed. You’ve been burning the candle at both ends and this will start to tell. You must also avoid conflict with co-workers, is the sixth house relates to this area of your life.
If you are a parent this period of combustion brings in additional responsibilities associated with parenting or problems that you’re unable to address adequately. As the combustion is taking place in your fifth house, such things as parenting, romance, creativity and speculative enterprises may come under the hammer. You need to be less impulsive and this is borne out by virtue of the fact that Mars, the planet which epitomises impulse, is also still in close proximity to your ruling planet Venus. Try to do things which give you a sense of balance and creative satisfaction to help counteract the influence of these sunbeams.
As well as the combustion of Venus and Mars, your ruling planet Mercury is also about to hit the Sun’s centre in transit. There are some astrologers who exempt Mercury from the combustion we’re talking about however, there are some who believe that this may cause frayed nerves, even nervous exhaustion, as well as futile discussions. As this combustion of three planets is taking place in your fourth house, it relates to your domestic activities, family life and most importantly your peace of mind. Try to build bridges rather than destroy them now. You may be right in your opinion but not everyone is going to agree with you. For this reason, it’s best to agree to disagree.
With the combustion of Venus and Mars and Mercury in your third house of communication with Venus having a strong say in your social activities, friendships may become unbalanced under this set of planetary positions. There may be disputes with close friends or maybe even a divergence in terms of your philosophical ideals. There may be demands placed upon you which you feel are unrealistic. There’s no point bottling up these feelings if you feel as if there’s some injustice being done. Communication is the key, as always, with your star sign, in sorting out these problems.
Combustion of these planets takes place in your second house of finance and values. Some astrologers are also of the opinion that close family ties may be adversely impacted by no less than three planets being under sunbeams. Take stock of your working activities now as well, and try to understand that doing too much actually undermines your efforts to increase your flow of cash and secure your future. You are chasing far too many financial objectives now to make any stick. There could be worries regarding bills and how you’re going to meet your financial commitments. The best advice is to stick to one path and do what works for you with full concentration and commitment. Fortunately, these transits don’t last long so there’s light at the end of the tunnel.
As Venus, Mars and your ruling planet Mercury, all suffer the combustion of the Sun now, in your Sun sign, you must be careful to manage your health and do less. You may feel overwhelmed and mentally exhausted as a result of these aspects on your Sun sign. You may find that some of the work you’ve done this inductor other people’s standards. You may also be putting in extra hours with little appreciation. You may have to reassess the situation and feel as if your input isn’t being valued. Perhaps because you’re so detail orientated that others are becoming irritated with you. You should give others enough rope to hang themselves with. Under the currentcircumstances don’t get overwhelmed by opinions or differences in style. That way you maintain an equilibrium of sorts in the process.
At this time, Venus, Mars and Mercury are in the company of the Sun in your 12th house. The combustion taking place here may dredge up a great deal of information from your past. You’ve tried to suppress some of these experiences but now you’re forced to deal with them. The best thing is to not suppress but rather meditate and understand the consequences of those events. Although some of the experiences you’ve had may trouble you, and may even have been traumatic, try to put a different spin by looking at it this way: if these events hadn’t happened, you wouldn’t have become the person you are today. Looking at things in a positive light will relieve you of the pressure of solar combustion.
The combustion of Mars is important for you right now as it’s one of your ruling planets. With Venus, your seventh ruler associated with Mars in your 11th house, you may have the opportunity to be with friends but won’t experience full satisfaction from those friendships. In some ways, you want to become a hermit and not deal with the same people you usually do. Changes are afoot and they aren’t external. This combustion is burning all the dross of your past and removing those things in your perception which are obstructing your happiness. Try not to resist what’s going on right now but rather, spend some time alone and enjoy your own company. This will greatly relieve you of any stress.
Fortunately, with your ruling planet Jupiter still transiting your Sun sign, the combustion of Venus, Mars and Mercury in your 10th house makes it a little easier for you to withstand the onslaught of demands in your professional arena. The combustion of these planets taking place here relates primarily to your professional life, promotions and self-esteem. Sometimes making too much effort to achieve these objectives is what causes problems. You have to trust that you’re capable enough to achieve what you deserve and don’t appear too needy. Furthermore, you don’t have to advertise your skills as your employers have already noted your abilities. This transit is underway for a few days more so be patient until things settle down and that much-coveted position may be yours after all.
Mercury, Mars and Venus transit through the most important houses for your Sun sign, namely the fourth which relates to family, and the fifth which is your creative endeavours. These two planets are connected now in the combustion in your ninth house. The ninth house is the principal-based area of your horoscope. Sometimes you have to stick to your guns even if others in their droves are against you. There may be an issue of integrity that you have to deal with and that can be causing you immense strain right now but rest assured, standing firm on these principles will result in increased respect from those who are currently opposing you. Don’t be afraid to stand up for what you believe in.
Money matters may become a contentious issue now or Mercury, Venus and Mars are under sunbeams. This combustion is in your eighth house and as Mars rules your third house of contracts, some agreements may be broken or your perception is that someone hasn’t adhered to what was promised. It’s one thing knowing full well that promises are being broken but convincing others of this fact is another matter altogether. If you’ve pooled your resources, especially financial ones with someone else, you may be unhappy in the way those funds are being managed. It is in your control and you can change things immediately if you wish, with much better results.
With three planets combust in your seventh house of marital affairs, navigating your emotional relationships will require every ounce of skill that you possess. You may be feeling exhausted by dealing with a situation that just doesn’t seem to change, no matter how you approach it. Sometimes, absence is the best way to make a point. You are able to increase your value by being conspicuously out of the picture for a while. Like any other commodity, love is valued less when it’s freely available, remember that. By stepping out of the picture you’ll discover that like any other commodity, you become more valuable to the other personby being absent. In this way you can start to win back some well-deserved respect.
As a general piece of advice for all-star signs, when these troublesome transits take place, meditation, fasting and time out is best advised. Often when you’re trying to solve a problem or confront people or the circumstances head on, the result is additional friction and even greater problems in the process. By being ‘passively engaged’ in the problem that you’re confronted with, you don’t add further fuel to the fire, and mysteriously, solutions arise of themselves.

Here’s the thought for you.This is the biggest secret that isn’t a secret.When you’re doing what you do with attention, fully immersed in this single immediate moment, and most importantly, unconscious of any sort of gain, you’re approaching the beautiful state of freedom.
When spiritual books tell you to live in the moment, it’s not something you have to bring in from outside. Living in the moment is about being immersed fully, in this moment and only this moment. That’s the secret. This meditation is explosive and will fast-track you to Nirvana. Simple? Yeah? Try it and give me your thoughts.
New Moon Solar Eclipse in Capricorn: New Self on the Way
Speaking of thenew you, today is 9 January 2019, and as I write this, the new Moon has just taken place in the practical earth sign of Capricorn. As a general rule of thumb the new Moon is about new beginnings. How coincidental that the New Year and this new Moon solar eclipse coincide. But in serendipity there are no accidents.
If you’re looking at these transits purely from the material perspective you’ve missed the point. What this new Moon is telling you is that your material life needn’t be removed from the joy and love you experience when you’re happily engaged in a pastime, hobby or anything which isn’t work. But this secret, this awareness is a new level of perception and is independent of work, pleasure, happiness or suffering. Cultivating this level of understanding in your mundane activities spiritualises those activities. Once this happens there’s no distance between your practical worldly life and your yoga practice. Day-to-day life becomes one big yoga posture. As the Buddhist saying goes, “Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.”
The resolution needed this New Year isn’t one of changing circumstance, work, financial status or facial features (with cosmetic surgery) but rather, one of insightful perception about transforming yourself. The new Moon solar eclipse in Capricorn signals a new you!
Capricorn is a material, security conscious earth sign. The new Moon here offers you a way out by inviting you to embrace materialism and simply change your outlook. The acquisition or loss of money, power and status isn’t the issue. Likewise there’s no necessity to accept or reject any circumstance find yourself in. Use what life is throwing at you intelligently as a stepping stone to the higher gateways of inner development.
Maintaining presence of mind brings deeper insight into the fluctuating karmic patterns of life. It endows you with the ability to stabilizes your awareness in the midst of changing life conditions, even catastrophic ones.
Astrologers Brief forecast
This new Moon solar eclipse has taken place in a cardinal sign and therefore all the cardinal signs will feel its impact very strongly. The cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. As there is a huge buildup of planets in this same sign – Mercury, Saturn, the Sun, Pluto and the Moon, immense energies are building to a coming crescendo.
From January 15 – 20 the hard aspect of Mars to this conglomerate of planets will be explosive. It’s during this cycle that self-containment and presence of mind will be most useful. Taking full control of yourself will help avert disputes, breakups which will be caused by impulsive choices and behaviour.
What happens in 2019 rests upon many astrological factors. The first new Moon of the year and where it stands in your horoscope can be very revealing for the general trend of the coming year. If it affects your rising or Sun sign you’ll make New Year’s resolutions associated with your physical self, appearance and ways in which you can become more popular.
The seventh house new Moon would relate to your business partnerships, marital status and changes that will necessarily take place in these most important relationships, and so on and so forth.
Here briefly, are the spheres of life in which this new Moon will impact each of the star signs.
New forms of learning intrigue you and this could involve a whole new level of understanding. Travelling is also on the cards and will bring you in touch with new cultures and interesting people.Check your 2019 Taurus Yearly Forecast HERE!

When things go wrong in your life, you might reckon that it could be because of the bad choices you make. But when random things happen to you without you lifting any finger, then you think there might be mysterious forces in the universe that conspired to make them happen.
This, perhaps, is the simplest way to describe what astrology refers to. But in reality, astrology is an interestingly complex subject that also influences cultural groups in many different ways.
In this post, we’ll take a look at astrology as practiced in three different cultures around the world.
For those in Western countries, this is probably the most popular form of astrology, as you can read it in horoscopes published in newspapers and magazine columns. Its focus is on sun signs, which gives it a rather tip-of-the-iceberg nature since it only represents a small fraction of the full astrology chart.
Historically, Western astrology goes as far back as 2300 BC, starting in ancient Mesopotamia and making its way into ancient Greece around 600 BC. However, it was during the period of Hellenistic culture when the study, development, and acceptance of astrology became widespread with the concepts of horoscopes and zodiacs, as we know them today, being introduced at the time.
The central principle of Western astrology is integration within the cosmos. To help you better understand it, you need to be familiar with the other core principles and main terminologies associated with Western astrology.
The individual, Earth, and its environment represent a single organism with parts that are correlated with each other.
When an individual and the Earth undergo cycles of change, you can expect that the same cycles of change are observed in the heavens as well. This is the idea that the maxim “as above so below” expresses.
The sun, moon, and planets journey across the sky through a band of constellations called the zodiac.
The zodiac has 12 signs representing the same number of constellations through which the sun passes for the whole duration of the year. Each of these 12 signs corresponds to a basic personality type based on what elements (fire, earth, air, and water) and modes (cardinal, fixed, and mutable) comprise them.
The 12 Signs of the Zodiac
Looking at the chart below, you will see that the 12 signs of the zodiac are further divided into a corresponding house, with Aries in the first house, and ruling planets to determine its energy.
In a nutshell, Western astrology can help you identify a sign by understanding the house, planet, god, element, mode, and polarity associated with it. Thus, you would come across personality tests that are based on astrological symbols and the meanings they represent.
We all know China as the birthplace of some of the most popular schools of thought such as Confucianism and Taoism, but did you know that astrology is also one of its major contributions to mankind?
Chinese astrology is based on and tied to astronomy—the study of the positions, motions, and properties of objects in the universe, which flourished during the Han Dynasty.
Aside from being closely related to Chinese philosophy, Chinese astrology also takes a lot of elements such as traditional Chinese astronomy and calendars which are concepts not found in Western astrology—making it a very comprehensive form of astrology.
The theory of the harmony between heaven, earth, and water is the guiding principle behind Chinese astrology. It is also based on the principles of yin and yang, the complementary forces in nature, and other concepts not found in Western astrology such as the lunisolar calendar.
Chinese astrology takes into account the position of the major planets, sun, moon, and comets at the time one is born, as well as the zodiac sign to determine that person’s destiny. Modern-day Chinese astrology also believes in computing a person’s fate based on birthday, birth season, and birth hours.
The Chinese lunar (also called lunisolar) calendar is a major component of Chinese astrology. The start of each lunar year depends on the cycles of the moon’s phases, which is in contrast to the solar calendar being used in the West whose annual cycles are based only directly upon the solar year.
The Chinese zodiac follows a 12-year lunar cycle, with the year in which you were born determines your sign.
Each sign is represented by one of 12 animals, which is believed to be chosen by Buddha to honor them for visiting him just before he died. Each sign is also assigned a set of attributes based on the nature of their animal counterpart.
Each of the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac appears in the Chinese calendar in a cycle of 12 years following this order: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig.
Thanks to the influence of Chinese astrology, the calendar was invented to help people organize their life and establish laws that are in harmony with the world.
The Chinese zodiac is also significant since the signs have helped the Chinese mark or date years according to the 12-cycle period being followed in the Chinese calendar.
Do you believe in the saying “What goes around comes around?” Such is the essence of karma or the belief that whatever you do, whether good or bad, comes back to you.
The subject of karma also implies that what you do is based on your motive or intention, with corresponding repercussions or outcomes, of course.
Whether or not you believe in karma, it’s one of the elements that heavily influence Indian or Vedic astrology, which is a popular concept in the modern age.
Vedic astrology is an astrological system that was developed in India 4000 to 6000 years ago and follows the principles and practice of the Hindu religion. Also known as Jyotisa, which translates to “light,” Vedic astrology focuses on astral patterns of light and how those patterns influence the destiny or Dharma of humans.
Like Western astrology, Vedic astrology uses the 12 signs of the zodiac, although the two differ in the way their calendars relate to the signs.
Vedic culture views nature with three primary attributes and humans with four legitimate motivations.
Attribute 1: Rajas – pertains to passion and activity
Attribute 2: Tamas – pertains to darkness and chaos
Attribute 3: Sattva – pertains to harmony and goodness
Motivation 1: Dharma – the performance of meaningful work
Motivation 2: Artha – the acquisition of wealth and material security
Motivation 3: Kama – the desire for emotional and sensual enjoyment
Motivation 4: Moksha – spiritual liberation and enlightenment
The Indian philosophy asserts that the three attributes in nature exist in everyone and everything, but in different proportions and contexts.
Human beings and living things are said to be the sum of all these three qualities.
There’s a hierarchy of life goals in Vedic science such that the first three motivations can never supersede the fourth one, meaning a life with no spiritual liberation is considered to be insignificant no matter how successful, wealthy, or happy you are.
An honorable life in Vedic astrological tradition is one that’s based on the doctrine of karma.
The 12 Signs of the Zodiac Based on Their Attributes and Motivations
While other forms of astrology are often dismissed as pseudoscience, Vedic astrology is hailed to maintain a “scientific” prevalence in modern India.
Many Indians take astrological advice at face value. In fact, some Indian universities offer advanced degrees in astrology.
Although the credibility of astrology, in general, is still up for debate, there’s no doubt that astrology holds an important place in certain cultures all over the world. Learning about the relevance of astrology to different cultures allows us to keep an open mind and gain a better understanding of our interconnectedness with the universe – and with one another.

This is a vitally important update regarding your current karma and how the coming total solar eclipse will affect your Zodiac star sign. This month, on the August 21 2017, what is being termed the Great US Solar Eclipse will take place and is visible across the whole of the United States in a 70 mile wide eclipse shadow. The eclipse will cut the whole of the US in a diagonal fashion and is the first one of this magnitude visible in the US across the whole of the country for many years.
This eclipse will therefore effect all of us but in slightly different ways. Depending on your Zodiac star sign, the eclipse will take place in one or other of the houses of the Zodiac. There are 12 houses or sectors which make up to 360° circle of the Zodiac.
How will this eclipse affect me?
Take the opportunity to meditate and contemplate under the eclipse is the ancient astrologers believe that the power radiating from an eclipse could accelerate the spiritual evolution of those who are in tune with it. What follows are 12 brief videos for each of the 12 signs of the zodiac and a quick focus on where the eclipse will happen to your star sign.
Aries – how will this eclipse affect you?
This total solar eclipse will radically shift your awareness giving you a greater understanding of your love life, romantic partners and exactly what it is you want to make you happy. You may have been stuck in a cycle where you’re the one doing all the giving with the other person expecting you to dance to their tune. This is going to stop shortly and you’ll feel empowered by your own self-determination. You’ll be laying down new rules of engagement and those who aren’t prepared to get with the program better get moving pretty quickly.
If you’ve been a little apprehensive about taking risks in life now you’ll be thinking differently and won’t want to miss vital opportunities that require digging deeper for that gambling instinct in which something big may pay off. This may be related to love or it may indeed affect you financially where you want some assurance that you can improve cash wise. But gambling is never an assurance so tread carefully.
Children will also take on greater importance in your life whether you have them or not. If you are without a child, some of you at childbearing age will now be considering the ramifications on your lifestyle if you choose this path. For others who are currently parents there may be some challenges now as you try to reconnect or deal with issues that have been long-standing. In any case, you can cement your relationship and come out the other end with a better understanding both ways.
Your family affairs will be under the spotlight as this total solar eclipse radically alters everything in this Department of your life. This should be a transformative cycle as Mars also joins the eclipse and pushes you into balancing the needs of your relatives with your own personal wants and desires.
Educational pursuits will also come under closer scrutiny and if you’ve been studying something recently you may decide that this is not exactly for you. You want to resonate with what you are doing now and peace of mind will take on greater importance. You realize that life is so short and that there’s no use beating around the bush. Some of you may have been stuck in a rut and will want to do something meaningful in your life so this is an opportunity to seek out those study courses or degrees which are going to help you not only earn more cash but to make you feel as if you now have some purposeful meaning in what you do.
The North node may also cast a shadow on some of your personal belongings such as house, car and other valuable items. You could be reevaluating what things really are of value in your life now.
How you communicate with people is vitally important in determining the success of your future and as this total solar eclipse takes place in your sphere of communications you’ll find your interest in this area keenly growing. You will start to connect the dots and understand how speech and language have an incredible influence on others. You’ll want to study patterns of language, neurolinguistics, and the psychology of how you can better get on with others. Part of this investigation will trigger your interest in travel and if you’ve been leading a sedentary life for some time that’s all about to change.
Travel is not only physical but mental and in your case, you will find a common meeting point where the two converge. Getting out and about, meeting new people and particularly those who are of like mind and can exchange ideas will be spotlighted in the coming year or so. With Jupiter’s transit also expanding your intellectual horizons this is going to be extraordinarily powerful period and one in which you will learn many new lessons in life that you can apply practically.
Your relationship with siblings (if you have any) will also come to the fore and previous problems must now be addressed or it could be another 18 to 20 years before those issues are resolved.
Sometimes success is unconsciously feared so whatever it is that’s been holding you back from attaining your financial goals can be worked through over the next few months and beyond. Karmic forces will be unleashed during this total solar eclipse thereby bringing your attention to issues of money, value and expanding those opportunities for you to do better and the live the lifestyle you’ve dreamed of. Now is the time to take hold of those dreams and bring them down to practical reality and go for what it is that you want irrespective of what others think or feel. In other words, this is a time of courage as you’ve been slowly been building up these resources to make the necessary changes.
Family matters may be under a cloud for the time being as you work through what you need give those in your close-knit circle the sort of life they want. But fear may surround you as well and your courage is what’s going to carry you through. If you look back 18 to 20 years ago you will find similar circumstances and planetary influences were affecting you and in fact, this period now will be one in which you can resolve some of those previous karmic obstacles.
As this cycle progresses you will find yourself earning more money and this is because of your changing thought patterns. As long as you bring your focused will to bear on these desires you’ll be successful.
You want to stand out during and following this current important total solar eclipse which takes place in your Sun sign. This pattern of behaviour and your personality type is now changing and this of course requires adaptation by you and those you live and work with. Initially, you’ll test the water to see whether, for example a new hairstyle, garments or even words have some shock value. How will people react? Well, Leo, you’ll never really know unless you try. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
This is most definitely a period of experimentation with your relationships (Uranus trines the eclipse) and more importantly how you view yourself. It is self-image that matters the most and how we project that onto the world. This is what happens when the eclipse and the karmic forces of nature bear upon your Sun sign. Over the next few months, the North node will continue to transit your Sun sign of Leo bringing with it many radical changes in your life and relationships.
You will be keenly interested in stepping outside the norm of your relationships as well. Your tastes in terms of people will be shifting and you may even surprise yourself with your choice of partners and friends during this upcoming period.
Those things in life we fear are the things we must deal with and eradicate. Under this total solar eclipse, you’ll have to address some of those fears and incidences or circumstances that have weighed heavily upon you throughout your past life. Going back into history is sometimes painful and as the karmic forces of nature impact upon your 12th house of hidden secrets, spirituality and self-analysis, you’ll gradually work through this creating the momentum you need to have a life which is burden free.
Guilt and shame are two of the worst emotions we can feel and if you’ve been weighed down by these feelings over the years you’ll finally have a breakthrough. With the eclipse transiting this essential part of your horoscope you will be able to expand your insight and take to meditation and yoga and other self-analytical practices which will bring you to a point in your life where finally peace and satisfaction prevail. But you need to make the effort and put aside the time, and more importantly cast off your judgement and prejudice.
If you’ve had preconceived ideas about all this new age airy-fairy stuff you need to suspend your suspicion and see what happens if you do look deeply into yourself with a view to becoming a more integrated person. This seems to be the focal point of the next year or so. Charity and working with those less privileged may be keys to unraveling some of these inner mysteries.
Many of you born under the sign of Libra will be experiencing a significant shift relating to friendships over the next couple of years and all due to this very powerful solar eclipse taking place in your 11th house of friendships and social activities. You have to re-evaluate what defines a friendship and some of you will have found your long-held friendships dissolving before your very eyes. In some cases, you may not even have any idea why this is happening but you’re questioning the motives of anyone and everyone now, including your family.
This sounds like a period of mistrust, fear and dissatisfaction but believe me you can only clear the decks of useless individuals in your life by dealing with these issues fairly and squarely. You mustn’t allow others to take advantage of you and you will certainly be seen to be a little harder, more ruthless in your dealings with others generally, but this is going to spare you considerable suffering in the future.
Part of this process relates to your understanding that self-esteem and self-worth are determined by the type of people you allow into your life. You are making a statement now and will not accept anything less than what you believe you deserve. This is going to shake up your life somewhat and it could even shock those who are closest to you especially when they come under your scrutiny and they don’t live up to the new standards that you are setting for yourself.
With Saturn also influencing and also being influenced by this important solar eclipse and being in your third house of communications it could be tough for a while but you will learn to economise with your feelings and words. This is a period where you’ll be more frugal and less prone to being a spendthrift as well. Savings and future security will become a pivotal focus of your activities.
You have an extraordinary spiritual and material shift about to culminate with your ruling planet Mars joining this important total solar eclipse in your career sector, the most powerful 10th house of the zodiac. How you deal with these energies is up to you but with a little planning and diligent, hard work you will achieve something extraordinary over the coming months. These karmic forces indicate that you’ve already worked consistently hard for some years now and have been waiting patiently for the results. Not that it’s the results you are focused on, but good work, expertise and a refining of your skills which will slowly result in a better reputation with additional income.
This 10th house of your horoscope has to do with the development of your ego and being ruled by the Sun which is the focal point of the eclipse, indicates the importance of this event on your professional activities and also the development of your character. Having the influence of the shadowy karmic forces on you at this time indicates you’ll become much more serious about what you want in life. Your upbeat nature which is at the heart of your personality may have to be mothballed for a while as you become more attentive to success, money and material necessities. If you can bring your concentration to bear upon what has to be done you’ll come out the other end in a completely new and improved lifestyle and persona.
This total solar eclipse takes place in the Sun sign of Leo in your ninth house in association with Mars bringing with it incredible opportunity spiritually and philosophically and materially as well. It brings with it the promise of your past karma. The actions of your past will now meet the promise of your present and future life and those fruits, depending on those actions, whether good or bad, will likewise be reaped by you now. You will take an interest in expanding your mind, taking on new forms of education and learning and this doesn’t necessarily mean university or college degrees but a keen interest in topics which you feel a resonance with. So take this as a period of great learning and expansion.
Foreign affairs, travel and perhaps even moving offshore may be of importance to you at this time. This could be because of your desire to expand so much that you feel a little stifled by the same old environment and cultural interests you’ve had over the years. This may also have to do with Saturn which has been transiting your zone of self-development as well as self-limitation and so the eclipse is going to help lessen the resistance you’ve been feeling in your life. It’s only through rising above the concept of self-limitation that an expansion of self can take place. You’re passionate about this spiritual adventure and will do so with a sense of discovery and self-improvement.
A huge transformation is about to take place under this total solar eclipse which occurs in your eighth house of rebirth. With Jupiter also transiting your professional sector for the next couple of months this is going to be an extremely important period of development and depending on how you handle the elimination of those things that are unnecessary in your life, your growth will be more or less accelerated.
This is also a period where you must learn to let go of those habits which are holding you back and part of this transformative process is a release of those habits. With those habits are ingrained associations. For example, if you’re having a difficult discussion with your partner or spouse, reaching for a cigarette or a drink may have become a natural reaction and association. By cultivating a keener awareness of these behaviours you’ll be able to break the back of them and move through life less burdened by these hindrances.
Sexuality is also under the influence of this sector and the eclipse will bring with it an acceleration and amplification of your desires in this area of your life. If this has been a sore point for you, dealing with matters of intimacy it will almost certainly be high on your agenda. The problem you may have here is that you’ll be obstructed by the other person who is the second half of this equation. They may not be ready for change, transformation and the necessary process of elimination that goes with growth.
Relationships are going to be of prime importance and the institution of marriage itself will come under the spotlight for those of you born under the sign of the water bearer. The karmic forces released under this total solar eclipse will force you to re-evaluate your view of this institution and whether or not it suits you-married or not. Those of you currently in relationships will be thinking about alternatives, trying to make your marriage or your long-term commitments adapt to who you are and what you want in life rather than, as you have been for many years, adapting yourself to the institution which is been culturally foisted upon you. In this respect, it’s a period of independent thought where you can finally break free of your past and those pre-conditioned mental habits that seem to have been superimposed upon you by others.
With Uranus, one of your ruling planets transiting the third house as well, you have excellent opportunities for lifting your level of communication during these coming months. Approaching any relationship either existing or new with the spirit of free thought and enquiry can only help to solidify those relationships. This ensures the future will be built on a solid foundation of what you want and of course what your partner wants too ( not what society determines is right! ).
This seventh house is all about negotiation and dealing with what others in the world also want. The coming months almost certainly be a period of adaptation but with the correct perspective, you can expect a whole lot of good luck in your relationships if you can accept the changes that is inevitable.
This eclipse will impact upon your working life and the way you manage your day-to-day activities. This is going to be particularly notable in terms of how you and your co-workers agree. Your desire will be to collaborate more easily with a view to increasing profits and further professional opportunities. Health matters which have been swept under the rug will no longer be able to be ignored and so this is a wake-up call that you need to pay more attention to those things that are impacting you adversely and also can help you turn the corner in terms of your well-being.
You’ll be looking at changing your philosophy of work and although others may look down upon you for this you know in your heart of hearts that it’s time for a big change. Those who have been taking advantage of you will sense the change and may not like what they see because there’s nothing in it for them any longer. Changes in this respect will also be noticed in your domestic environment with family members who have had some measure of emotional control over you feeling their grip lessening. It’s time to celebrate and start making those changes in your life you know are going to create a difference.
As an introduction to the new year of 2017, I thought I’d talk a little bit about talent and how to use that for achieving something meaningful in your life. Usually one of the biggest difficulties initially is identifying not only what your talent is but if that talent will provide you happiness and satisfaction or not. Many people possess a variety of talents but don’t necessarily feel harmonised in body mind and spirit through the expression of that talent. Guilt can play a part in this. If for example, your Jewish father wanted you to continue in the lending business because you were great at winning new clients but your heart really was set upon playing the guitar in a band, which you were also good at, what would you do? In your heart of hearts, you want to play guitar but your cultural conditioning and sense of guilt prevent you doing what you know you should – out of fear.
If you’re fortunate enough to discover what it is you are talented at and also feel happy doing it, you then need the focus of a high order to magnify your passion and talent. Through one-pointed determination set your heart on achieving your goal. For the most part, you should use your own power and means to achieve what you desire in life even if you happen to have the option for financial and professional support to get you further. No man is an island under himself, but you should also be careful of becoming indebted to people would give you money only as a means of ensnaring you for their own selfish ends. Practical and commonsensical skills as an adjunct to the above are often conspicuously seen lacking in some of the most creative individuals and even some of the biggest stars on the world stage. Many end up completely broke.
The vast majority of people on planet Earth who believe in God never really achieve anything worthwhile because the faith they have is impotent in that they do nothing themselves to utilise the science and laws of success practically. They are waiting, forever waiting for Something above to give them what they pray for. I’m not saying you shouldn’t believe in God and in fact if you do have faith in some higher power you should show God just how much you appreciate the gifts given by Him/Her by doing your best to develop them to the best of your ability. This is called gratitude and is another fundamental law of success and wealth.
True gratitude is not easily understood. It is the sense that you have more than enough even if you don’t. That is why the poverty struck and those with a scarcity mentality constantly worry about not having enough and therefore, consequently, amplify the thought and feeling of scarcity thereby attracting more of that in their lives. What is true, practical faith if not acting as if you have more than enough? You must always act “AS IF” with the following thoughts
I am successful
I have money
I am great at what I do
These thoughts generate positive your chemicals in the body which in turn enhance your aura and have an impact on the environment and people around you. Electromagnetic aura is exactly that – magnetic, and has the power to attract objects, people, events and circumstances including the success that you want. Act AS IF even if NOT is your current condition!
The faith most religious people talk of is never a practical faith and rarely is it ever true courage, valor or unflinching strength – that strength of believing in yourself against all odds. Using religion as an analogy, the concept of faith is easily talked about. It’s very cheap. But what if say, the Pope, the spiritual figurehead for God here on earth to a billion faithful was to fall ill. Would the bishops reach for a Bible praying to Jesus for recovery or would they rush him to the hospital and avail themselves of the best medical expertise in Rome? Where one’s faith lies is very easily seen in actions which always speak louder than words.
It would appear from the observation that far greater faith in medicine than in any great healing teaching of Jesus seems to be exhibited by the majority of people even those of ‘faith’. The belief that he would heal those who pray to him should be enough to convince at least the Pope of the efficacy of prayer and faith. You’d think the Pope, closest child of God, would set an example to his fawning followers to prove to them at least his own power of faith even if it meant his death. We all know from Christian doctrine that death is conquerable and according to Catholic tradition through faith is one the ability to overcome any fear. You realise I’m being facetious, don’t you?
But what has any of this to do with astrology? Astrology is a tool, a catalyst for understanding your strengths and weaknesses and in particular the talents that may be embedded within your genetic makeup. Understanding your talents gives rise to a belief they can be improved upon and generate success. This is the birth of faith in one’s own self. Your interests, study patterns and work prospects are clearly seen in your horoscope. Astrology is not about dreaming about what will happen but is a very efficient way of knowing what and also when and how. Along with talent it’s imperative to do self-analysis and that must be done without the imposition of any dogma in the process. This is easier than it sounds because at our core we are conditioned animals – genetically and environmentally and this is dramatically impacted by our cultural and religious heritage.
If you must read books like the Bible or even the Koran you should do so with a completely open mind and stand receptive to the intuitive meaning for you and your life at any given moment. This sometimes means your interpretation will be at odds with the prevailing religious trend. But isn’t that what exactly what has happened with 300 different Christian denominations. Each and every one of them has a different view of the Bible. Each and every one of them justifies their view. So I say create another view – your own view and use it in the best way you can with discrimination and spiritual intuition.That’s the voice of God if indeed you’d like to believe there is one.
Now consulting astrology that doesn’t necessarily mean your life will have every single issue resolved through the horoscope. That is again a matter of faith and courage on your part, where you must make decisions and stop relying on supernatural forces including the planets, to bring you the results you daydream about. Wishful thinking won’t produce any results. And doing the same thing over and over again just because you have a Bible in your hand will also not produce results. Again that is why 99% of the people believing in God die in poverty. Don’t you think that’s rather odd? The fact of the matter is that God only really helps those who help themselves.
Helping yourself is best done through self-understanding and wisdom. That is the primary motivation of astrology – to reflect back to the inquirer what karmic residue from the previous life in terms of abilities, can be accessed in this current incarnation. Some of that residue is also disharmonious and obstructive and there are ways to deal with that.
Primarily the first house, which is the edifice of the horoscope, should be carefully looked at. The 2nd house which is finance and the ability to earn money is obviously tied in with the 10th house of professional achievement and activity. The 6th house is discipline, daily work, and skills. The 2nd, 6th and 10th house, therefore, form a triangle being 120° apart from each other. In the natural Zodiac, these star signs are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn, the earth trine. Looking at these part of the horoscope yield valuable information on the value system one has and what capacity through skillful action one is endowed with and able to achieve. The pinnacle of that achievement is the 10th house.
But earning money is not necessarily satisfying as was explained at the outset. Intellectual, social, creative and spiritual satisfaction need to be interwoven into the financial fabric of one’s overall success. The 3rd house, 5th house, and 9th houses happen to be different aspects of the mind. This tells us of the intellectual motivations and directions a person is likely to take. The 5th house is particularly important in terms of one’s creative ability and, to an extent, competitive instincts. The 9th house is the spiritual mind and along with the 5th house has much to say about the past and future life of the individual and where this life may be used as a catalyst to fulfill one’s aspirations. Also, ultimately, these areas of the horoscope tell you where one is destined to be. It’s often said that great and successful people often believed they were destined for great things.
In studying the 10th house of profession and success, the 11th house can’t be overlooked as these deals with one’s life fulfillment and interestingly is also connected with social activities and friends. In many cases the social elements in your life are a key to success and being human we do tend to naturally gravitate towards group activities and team spirit as part of the drive for success. We like to share our successes in a social context.
The Sun, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter relate strongly to the issues of success and career. Unfortunately, most people reverse the law in the hope of achieving success. By that I mean that money is usually the motivation and the goal rather than creative passion and excellence in the pursuit of some lofty ideal being the primary criteria for success. With the perfection of skill comes celebrity or fame and this naturally leads to wealth. This is by far the best way to achieve the triumph you desire. Through astrology and the study of the planets and houses, you will make wonderful sense of the jigsaw that your life may appear to be at this time. Putting those pieces together is the first goal on your path to success. Once the jigsaw is solved, the picture of your life becomes so much clearer.

You have an unconditional and non-judgemental approach to relationships, which on the one hand is excellent because you instinctively understand the joy of giving; however, this could make you a pushover and create a situation in which you are the one always doing the giving and possibly not receiving as much as you should.
Your dreams of love and your idealism about relationships began at an early stage in your life and this habit of seeing the world through rose-colored glasses and believing that everyone is perfect, could lead to you becoming disillusioned when you learn the truth about human beings.
You have a desire to give so much of yourself that you become oblivious to the truth of the relationship you are in. They say love is blind but you must do your best to see people for who they are and not for what you believe them to be. Once this occurs you’ll be ready to move to a new level in your relationships and not only enjoy the process of giving but graciously receive the love of equal value from someone you have in your life.
In your desire to receive the love you are prone to smothering others and possessing them. You must allow them time and space to develop their own interests and this will ultimately benefit both of you.
You are a creative individual and therefore romance to you is an expression of this creativity. You’re constantly trying to keep your love alive by finding new ways to make it interesting, by expressing your feelings and keeping the flames of passion burning brightly. To you, passion is not something that diminishes with age but should keep developing as a consequence of your interest in the person you love.
You’re a sentimental character and cry at the drop of a hat. You’re able to sense when your partner has a problem and exhibit such compassion and tenderness that you often feel their pain more than they do!
One of your most amazing skills is that of your intuitive power. You know exactly how your partner feels and therefore unasked are able to offer advice, give them a loving look or simply touch them in a way that makes them feel supported and loved. This also can be unnerving for your soulmate because you know when they are lying or trying to pull the wool over your eyes. You can see straight through them and know exactly the truth of any situation.
Some Pisceans tend to seek love almost blindly and are never quite satisfied with the people they meet. For them, the grass is always greener on the other side and they are never able to settle down to a satisfactory and stable romantic situation. The ideal lover that has been lodged in their brain for many years is never matched by any of the people they meet. If you happen to be one of these Pisceans, try to appreciate your partner for who they are rather than what you want them to be.
Sexuality is important to Pisces and you need someone who will offer you the same measure of passion, love and tenderness in return. Physical love and intimacy is part and parcel of your personality and you give of yourself 100 percent. You would like to think that your partner or spouse would do the same.
The part of the zodiac that rules your sexuality is the sign of Libra and the planet Venus. You couldn’t get much more sensual and romantic than by having these signs and planets ruling this aspect of your life. Moreover, Pisces finds its greatest comfort in the sign of Pisces. You are able to love and offer sexual satisfaction to your partner in great measure. I only hope that this will be reciprocated.
You mustn’t become a victim of love. In your desire to provide too much too soon, you may find yourself lacking and if marriage is something you choose to enter into, just remember that love is a long-term commitment. Unconditional love should be a two-way street so study your partners carefully and have no doubt before tying the knot of love. Romance for Pisces should be reciprocal.
You’d probably die if anyone saw your secret list of most admirable traits you look for in a partner. They certainly wouldn’t fall into the typical category of your friends, I’m sure. Your wish list might contain some of the most far-fetched and unusual points. You may not in fact secretly desire someone who is tall, dark and handsome; or, if you’re a male, someone typically 36–24–36.
An individual and unique view on life is also extended to your taste in matters of romance and marriage. Yours is not a typical love and the way you approach your relationships may be a little uncomfortable for others because you are just so different.
You need relationships that can help you grow and in which your mind is constantly active. You love to explore the possibilities that are available to you and at times this could break the barriers of what is considered normal in society. In your earlier years you will push ideas to the limits if only to say that you have experienced it. Later, of course, you may settle down to a more normal approach to relationships but with the full satisfaction of knowing that at least you explored those avenues to their natural conclusion.
Many Aquarians prefer to remain single for as long as possible because freedom is an essential part of your lifestyle. If you’re fortunate enough to meet someone who can respect this need, life will be much easier and they can actually enhance your love for them.
You have strong opinions about true love. The way you show your love may be a little disconcerting to those who have been reared in a traditional environment, so perhaps it’s not a bad idea to test the water first before shocking people with your antics.
Equality is extremely essential in any relationship and if someone tries to exert an unfair level of control over you, rest assured it will backfire on them and could bring the relationship crashing to the ground. As long as you have a mutually sharing style of relationship, you’re happy.
You also have no problem asking for your needs to be met, irrespective of what those needs are. You’re honest, perhaps even blunt at times, but there’ll be no ambiguity about where you’re coming from.
Although you are loyal and trustworthy, as a friend and lover—make no bones about it—you need that freedom and independence to explore unique friendships along the way. Hopefully you’ll find a liberal-minded partner who understands that this is your way of growing as a human being.
There’s a strong social element to the sign of Aquarius and your partner will need to accept this. Parties, groups, and also clubs and other organisations that are connected with spiritual or social issues but which offer a socially entertaining backdrop, are all necessary for your mental and emotional wellbeing. If your partner is prepared to join in and support you in these endeavours, well and good. This will only serve to enhance the relationship and the love you have for each other.
If, however, you find yourself being short-changed by someone who is insular and not aware of the world’s greater needs, you’ll be off to greener pastures.
Your main focus is to explore your personal relationships and find the deeper meaning of love and on your terms. You’re not afraid of societal taboos and are in fact even likely to continue to investigate these forbidden sexual and emotional avenues.
Your search for love and meaning throughout your life will be on your own terms and if someone is prepared to join you on this journey and share in the excitement and joy that comes as a result then you’ll both be all the better for it.
