Horoscopes for Sept 27 Lunar Eclipse-Oct 12 New Moon

September Lunar Eclipse

At last! An eclipse that finally looked like an eclipse! Spectacular. And what sky-story did this eclipse-that-looked-like-an-eclipse tell? All eclipses stir issues of bondings and separations, and this eclipse in particular is about what “we” have vs what “I” have; the gains or sacrifices made in the name of personal relationship as well as humanitarian ideals, the needs of the people (or animals, or the environment) vs personal greed or personal gain. This last was demonstrated perfectly by Pope Francis (Sun in Sagittarius, Moon in Aquarius, Cancer Rising) during his historic visit to the U.S. in which he repeated his call that individually and collectively we take stronger action to help others, especially the powerless, be they people, animals, or the environment. 

Okay, I hear it now: “But what’s it mean for me?” Just look up your Sun and Ascendant sign below and then you’ll know! (I’m a poet and don’t even know it!)

Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22): Librans are channeling our inner Capricorn at this eclipse in asking “What’s in it for me?” in regards to relationship. Hang on Libra, in one more year jolly Jupiter enters our sign and maybe then we can cash in our chips--or any partners not pulling their weight, whichever’s worth more at the time.

Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21): Spirituality vs practicality, that is the question. And just when we thought we were on the same page as God (or Goddess, or dog which is god spelled backwards) suddenly the money gets tight. Filthy lucre wins again! Good thing we don’t mind getting our hands dirty. Kinda like it, in fact.

Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 20): Although winning the lottery is not out of the question at/near the time of this eclipse Sadge, bigger news for us is that Saturn has entered our sign, there to stay for the next 2 years. Saturn says, don’t spend all that money just yet ‘cause 2018 is coming. (What’s 2018 got to do with it? Hang around and we’ll find out). 

Capricorn (Dec 21-Jan 19): We’re doing a lot of digging at this time Cappy. Searching for our past, gold, an escape, or maybe just a leaky pipe. Stars say that pat on the back we’re always waiting for may finally be coming. We’ll find out what it’s worth too (hint: just try paying for a gallon of milk, soy, almond, or otherwise, with it). 

Aquarius (January 20-Feb 17): Saint Francis said, “Preach the gospel at all times. If necessary, use words.” What we say vs what we do is on display at this time Aquarius. Hopefully some kind of stellar alignment between the two is going on. You know, unless we’re a vocal axe-murderer. In which case, hopefully, we’re all talk, no action. 

Pisces (Feb 18-March 19): If we hate it when money is the issue Pisces (and we do) then we’re gonna hate it, ‘cause money is the issue. That beats “the real vs the ideal in realms of relationship,” though, right? Because that’s the other issue. At least we won’t be bored.

Aries (March 20-April 19): We’re feeling sloppily emotional Aries. Which is better than feeling sloppily un-emotional. That’d be like being a badly dressed Vulcan or something. Just watch the scene where Spock dies in The Wrath of Khan, have a good cry, and we’ll feel better by morning. What’s that? We haven’t seen Wrath yet? Umm ... we’re feeling all sloppily annoyed at unannounced spoilers then.

Taurus (April 20-May 21): Voltaire said that while doubt is an uncomfortable position, certainty is an absurd one. We have the choice between being uncomfortable or absurd Taurus. Exert control in life areas that we can but if about to sprain something, let go.  

Gemini (May 22-April 20): A sacrifice in name of the greater good is called for at this time Gem. This could be anything from signing up for a 6 month stint of helping the poor to keeping our opinions to ourselves for the time being. The latter being impossible, where’s the sign up sheet again?

Cancer (June 21-July 21): We say “Busy as a beaver,” because beavers are the only animal as obsessed with home improvement projects as man. The difference being, beavers don’t have to hit Home Depot to procure materials. Home, family, foundations are all on our mind right now. The board feet we could get out of our neighbor’s trees might be on our mind right now too, but best ignore that one.

Leo (July 22-August 22): Richard Lion-heart is famed as the “good” king of England, vs evil brother King John, who was plagued by Robin Hood. Crazy thing is, after childhood Richard rarely set foot in England, and bankrupted the country restlessly going on crusades to boot. We’re restless these days too Leo. Just take care not to spend all our cash or forget the folks back home. 

Virgo (August 23-Sept 22): Our vision collides with another’s Virgo. We don’t mind, unless it involves money. So we’re gonna mind, because it does. If only everyone would allocate resources the way we see fit, we could all get on with our lives and avoid these messy dilemmas.

Equine Astrology TOD for TUESDAY, Sept 15

Equine Astrology Tip of the Day for TUESDAY, September 15: Indecision rules today. English or Western? Trail ride or ring work? Ride the mare or the gelding? No need to stress about all this--we're probably going to get stuck for so long on what to have for breakfast there won't be time to do much else after ...

Thursday, Sept 10 Equine Astrology TOD

Equine Astrology Tip of the Day for THURSDAY, Sept 10: Stars say high emotions dominate tomorrow riders (esp 1st half of day). We're either going to be up because we're looking good, or down because something about our life doesn't look as good as we'd like it too. Our horses will be fine!  They're too wise to give ego free rein, and smart enough to know the value of superficial appearances. We should all be as smart as horses.

Virgo Solar Eclipse

Okay, so the big astrological news right now is this weekend's Solar Eclipse in Virgo!  You know, Virgos have a reputation of being overly zealous in their attempts to improve the rest of us. Which would be less annoying if they didn't work so darn hard at constantly improving *themselves* (and more often than not, succeeding). This eclipse will be something like Virgo on steriods so either stay away from or embrace the perfectionist in your life. But wait! This Virgo Eclipse is influenced by nebulous Neptune!  Which means we'll still be running into Virgoan OCD, but instead of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, this OCD is Obsessive Confusion Disorder. It's like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder but with fewer boundaries.

Friday, Sept 4 Equine Astrology TOD

Equine Astrology TOD for FRIDAY, Sept 4: Aspects today incline to daydreaming as well as "whole lotta talk, a lot less action," energy. Our advice? Why fight the stars? Let yourself dream about what you and your horse *could* do, but recognize most of it is going to be pie-in-the-sky. Or even better ... saddle up our unicorn instead.

August 29 Pisces Full Moon

Apologies for the absence folks, I've been on a writing jag again. Anyway!--big news of the week is Saturday's (Aug 29) Full Moon. At a Full Moon we feel a conflict between life direction (Sun) and our needs (Moon) ... wants vs needs in essence. We feel this conflict but we usually don't know it. Others also feel the same conflict, but don't know it. It's no wonder over reactions reign when the Full Moon rises. Next life maybe we should just all be reincarnated as werewolves and go with it. This life, remember that we aren't a werewolf and if someone or something is getting on our nerves now through the Full Moon, neither biting them nor running through the woods naked and growling is a productive solution. (i.e., don't over react).

THURSDAY, Aug 13 Equine Astrology TOD

Equine Astrology Tip of the Day for THURSDAY, August13: Today is one of the best hair fixing & hair cutting (to stay cut) days of the year. But leave those whiskers alone! There's a breed for people who don't like horses with whiskers--it's called "Breyer."
