Seed and Soiling: Horoscopes for Monday, March 26- Monday, April 8

Hello muggles, ladies, gentlemen, witches, wizards, sorcerers, priests and atheists.
Everyone should fit into one of these columns, at least, except maybe children.
Surely, you ought to know that this column is not for children. Thank you for either "accidentally" clicking your way here, or intentionally reading this column. Either way, you are sure to come back again, if indeed, you are a truly good person. It has been quite some time since your author has scribed the Ways of the Stars for L.A. Beat (and  Beyond!) Even if you don't know me, I assure you, you have missed me, as  I have missed you...

So much is in the stars, right now! Love, money, fortune, and fame for all of us, let's pretend! Getting down to the nitty-gritty ... Mars persists in its retrograde in Virgo, creating an edgy discrimination and an analyzing process in almost all situations between people, and in the overall environment surrounding us, but there is also a grand Earth trine happening. The grand Earth trine involves  all three Earth signs, Taurus, Capricorn and Virgo, creating a solid vision and comprehension of the manifest, and material world. This largely "grounds" us out, or mellows us, and situates us virtually faceting our Selves in a set place in time.

Astrologically speaking, we have seldom seen such hopeful times, in some manner of speaking.
It may truly be a time for planting the seeds we wish to see grow, for tilling the soil  and for getting our hands slightly dirty. We will thankfully, also see Mercury leave its retrograde station, going direct in Pisces by Wednesday next week. Translation: Communication will suck less.

Instead of feeling a little paranoid about everybody, we'll feel like we're accurately perceiving each other via our own intuitions, as that we comprehend each other on a much clearer, deeper subtle level than at current. That depth will come from clearly assessing from where our present lack of communications truly stem.

Lady Venus moves into Gemini mid next-week, with her love me, love me not tendencies there, and in the next fortnight moody Luna will cycle through half of the zodiac, from Taurus where she is now, around to Scorpio by Monday, April 8. Enjoy your scopes.

Consideration: Please find out your Moon sign, and Rising sign at Read your Moon sign especially if you were born at night, but all three make for a more accurate picture. Your Sun sign is the sign you usually refer to when someone pops the question, "What's your sign?"
Aries - Close Your Eyes and Jump March 21-23 to April 20-23
This is a rather fortunate period for you, so if you're not feeling particularly lucky, have the sense on account of this column to rely on luck a little more than you usually might. Then, if it fails, blame the column instead of your crappy intuition. It's been a bit of a strange time for you recently, but you're not seeming to mind the erratic impulses in your head. All of the inconsistency may even be unexpectedly and mercifully distracting. Go with it.

Taurus - Warm Tea
April 21- 23 to May 20 - 23
Your lady Venus moves into Gemini shortly, which leaves you perhaps a little thankfully emotionally distant, and oscillating between one thing and another in a bit of a fickle manner. Venus also squares Mars' retrograde in Virgo, wherein it can be overly critical. It can be like a willingness to get caught up in far too much detail which can serve you, but you've got to watch it carefully. Be mellow, and think about adaptability. The grand Earth trine happening right now has the power to deeply earth all of us.

Gemini - Let Go
May 21-23 To June 20-23
You will be  feeling your two (or many more) sides coming together a little more cohesively, as Venus moves into Gemini, around April 3 or April 4. Contrary to the rest of the zodiac, Venus's movement into your own sign, from Taurus leaves you feeling energetic; However, Gemini has been known to embody "Love me, love me not," tendencies, a theme which is accentuated now. Beware you don't push away the people you desire to be closest with. Also, vice-versa, making sure not to pull too close the people you desire to be away from.

Cancer - Plants Without Water June 21-23 to July 20-23
Anyone with well-aspected strong cancer influences be moving their focus from a social sphere, to a more family-oriented one. As your polarities shift, the Moon moving from Taurus to Scorpio within the time frame of this horoscope, you may be feeling yourself burning up a little. There is very little of your water element in the sky, right now, except Mercury and Neptune. Communication is so very important, as well as remembering how fine-tuned your own intuition can be.


Leo - Simplicity
July 21-23 to Aug. 20-23
It's a time for considering number one when the Sun is in Aries, getting back to basics, reassessing your own motives, intentions, and doing a little mental spring cleaning. Fickle Venus moves into Gemini, squaring Mars's retrograde in picky, analytical Virgo, so don't be too picky and analytical where it comes to your personal relationship. It's very simple and it applies all around. Your sign's ruler, the Sun is beginning again the Fool, somehow, who is not one but none. Mercury finally going direct works to your advantage, come the middle of next week.

Virgo- Language of Bees
Aug. 21-24 to Sept. 21-23
You may be feeling a little under the weather or so to speak, but embrace the grand Earth trine occurring at the moment, if you will! You can stay grounded by not getting too carried away with all of the Fire in the air. Go with the temptation to buzz around like a little bee, on fire with a mission, and not on fire with pointless critical things to say that no one benefits from as much as you think they do. Find another way to communicate, and this will be made much easier when Mercury goes direct in a weeks time.

Libra - This Too Shall Pass
Sept. 21- 23 to Oct. 21 -23
Your sister Venus has been moving about quite busily lately, as I imagine, so have you. Holy macaroni. It might be a bit of a general down-sweep for you with Saturn being retrograde in Libra, but this too shall pass. Take a long salt bath, with flower petals and throw some green things on your table; It will help tremendously.
Earthing and grounding is the call of the moment.

Scorpio - Growing Roots
Oct. 21-23 to Nov. 21-23
Acting a little selfishly lately, are we? Mars is squaring Neptune, and Venus right now, and the Sun is squaring your demoted planetary cool-cat, Pluto. So, be careful that you're not creatively cut off, and try to push through feelings of being stifled. Otherwise, the grand Earth trine is encouragement for everyone to keep their feet firmly on the ground, and this can be particularly helpful to those of you born with Scorpio influences, as extremism will be minimized.


Sagittarius - Settling Up Nov. 20-23 to Dec. 20-23
Riding the general curve of the land right now, you will be finding more time to ground, centre and reflect in the next two weeks. Communications will deepen, while affections may strain into a place of a place of easily waxing and waning, about mid-next week when Venus moves into Gemini. Redefining the self, and personal goals will be at the forefront of issues, as well as a focus on your closer relationships, too, and how they support, and define your character.


Capricorn - Patience Dec. 20-23 to Jan. 18-21
Enjoy the comfort while it lasts, as your sign is about to go retrograde in Pluto. Position yourself well for the coming onslaught to your psyche, by taking good advantage of the grande Earth trine, allowing you to deeply connect with your financial, and metaphorical sense of "grounding," or laying down roots. Also, the lines of communication will be opening a little wider in about two weeks, as well, so if there is anything you find yourself waiting on, give it until then.

Aquarius - Transfiguration
Jan. 18-21 to Feb. 18- 21
You are a bit easily influenced by those around you, being so very socially inclined Aquarius, and this you know. In this case of Venus doing all she has been, about to go into Gemini, be careful that you are not too hot and cold. This can emphasize your tendency to seem aloof as it is. Venus is sextile to your sign and you know what that means “gives you sassy eyebrows” But really, you're well inclined for some positive times of accomplishment in the financial plane, and very healthy communication, in the next two weeks.

Pisces - Open Channel
Feb. 18-21 to March 18-21
Finally, the floodgate that was released will be turning into a healthily flowing new waterway. Your social sphere will be reopening, like the petals of a flower. The next two weeks will be a time of deep contemplation and passionate transformation, for those of you who flow with the Piscine. Make keeping a pen in hand a habit more often than not, come a week from now, as you may find things flowing more from you that you did not intend.
