As a romance author and a student of astrology, I offer forecasts that focus on the sexy side of life. While these are purely for entertainment purposes, each month you’ll get a glimpse of what’s actually going on in the astrosphere as well.

FORECASTS FOR APRIL, 2012                  

News for all signs:

***Sun in Aries thru 4/19 enhances aggression and “ramming” full speed ahead; ***Full Moon in Libra 4/6 supports mediation and negotiation; ***New Moon in Taurus 4/21 will support grounded beginnings, stability; ***Neptune in Pisces should ease a light to moderate burden; BUT ***Mars is still in retrograde motion thru 4/14 continuing to slow down progress & reduce energy levels; ***Mercury goes direct 4/4 but communication confusions, computer and transportation glitches may continue thru 4/9.

The forecasts below involve two of my passions – astrology and tarot. The first card is a general message, the second is about love & relationships (sexual, romantic, friendly, familial). The interpretations are from my book, “Tarot of The Lotus Circle”, but you’ll have to use a little intuition to determine what it means to you personally. Have fun!

ARIES – March 21 to April 19

6 of Swords:  Troubled waters may be all around you but you can rise above any problems. At least one Spirit Guide and one friend will create a bridge for you to safely cross.

10 of Wands: All the relationships around you right now appear to be exhausting. It’s time to take a hard look at how much work you’re having to put into them and whether the work is worth the relationship.

TAURUS  – April 20 to May 20

10 of Swords: The horse is dead. Why are you still sitting on it, expecting it to take you somewhere? There’s a fresh ride just waiting for you to stop dwelling on what you lost and notice what you have. A whole team of Spirit Guides are standing by to support your new life plan.

Queen of Swords: A female over 35, often dark in coloring or personality & usually in fields of law, law enforcement, military, or corporate CEO, will have a strong influence over your relationship area this month.

GEMINI – May 21 to June 20

The Lovers: The atmosphere around you is tense with the need to make a very tough choice between extremes. There is no way to find a compromise on this one. More time is needed.

4 of Wands: Commitment is the key word in all relationships. Whatever stage you are at, it is about to step up to the next level. This could mean moving in together, getting engaged or even married. Alternatively, a family member may need to move in with you or vice-versa.

CANCER – June 21 to July 22

Strength: No matter what is going on, you are now surrounded by strong, positive energy. Use deep breathing and focused imagery to pull that energy into your physical reality and you will soon find there is nothing you cannot manage.

5 of Wands: There are others interested in the same person you are and the object of your interest isn’t ready to choose just one love. Retain your dignity. If you don’t like to share, look elsewhere.

LEO – July 23 to August 22

6 of Cups: Look to the past for answers about the present. A Spirit Guide is coming to you in human form. Remember and learn from the past but live in the present. Literary efforts are favored by this card.

10 of Cups: This is the Happily Ever After Card. The perfect relationship with a long-term commitment or marriage is coming into your life. Family relationships find the right balance.

VIRGO – August 23 to September 22

Queen of Coins: A female, over the age of 35, often with fair to reddish coloring, either wealthy or in a career where she handles money or the careers of others (such as an agent), will have an influence over your month.

8 of Coins: If single, you are about to enter a relationship unlike any you have experience with. If committed, you’re about to enter new territory, like parenthood or a change of roles.

LIBRA – September 23 to October 22

8 of Wands: Let go of the history, including the recent past. The logjam in your life is breaking up and things are about to move so fast, you could be caught unprepared. Fasten your seatbelt.

Ace of Cups: Romance is in the air. Welcome it without bias or strings and you’ll be very happy. Someone new is entering your life in a traditional way – this could be an ideal mate or a baby.

SCORPIO – October 23 to November 21

The Hermit: A spiritual teacher or human mentor is standing by to guide you through a dilemma. Go into your cave for a while, be silent and listen to the message being offered.

The Star: A good time to wish for a special person, or an improvement in a relationship, but be cautious in your wording. Though The Star may grant a wish, it does not guarantee a happy ending.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 to December 21

Prince of Wands: A transition has begun, or soon will, with regard to the work you do, which will ultimately affect other areas of your life.

The Hanged Man: It seems as though you’ve been waiting forever for that certain someone, or for a resolution to a problematic relationship. Hang in there, the waiting period is almost over.

CAPRICORN – December 22 to January 19

7 of Cups: You have the gift of productive dreaming, but the handicap of being a daydreamer. Make sure you are using your imagination to flesh out creative ideas and not just spacing out.

9 of Wands: Regarding all relationships, extreme patience is being called for. If looking for love, you’ve got a bit longer before the ideal mate is in your field.

AQUARIUS – January 20 to February 18

King of Swords: A man over 40, often dark in coloring or personality & usually in fields of law, law enforcement, military, or corporate CEO, will have a strong influence over your month.

5 of Swords: There is more fighting than loving going on in your relationship. A major conflict needs to be resolved before you can move forward. Keep family members out of it.

PISCES – February 19 to March 20

Ace of Swords: The energy of a new beginning is just ahead, but you seem to be hesitating. You have a powerful sword in your hand. Whatever you want or need to cut out, you have the tool to do the job.

3 of Coins: You have enough experience to succeed in a current relationship. Common careers and interests have formed a strong bond, but sexual attraction seems low. It’s what you need at the moment.

    FORECASTS FOR MARCH, 2012

            News for all signs:

***Sun in Pisces thru 3/20 supports daydreams and flights of fancy;  ***Full Moon in Virgo 3/8 will illuminate imperfections in self & others; ***Rare Grand Trine 3/12-13 will be sprinkling Earth with magic dust—following a “tip” or flash of inspiration on or around those days could have wonderful long-term results; ***New Moon in Aries 3/22 will support daring new starts;    BUT

***Mars is still in retrograde thru 4/14 continuing to slow down progress & reduce energy levels and ***Mercury goes retrograde 3/12–4/4 resulting in communication confusions, computer and transportation glitches, so get moving quickly with that new idea!

The forecasts below involve two of my passions – astrology and tarot. The first card is a general message, the second is about love/relationships (romantic, friendly, family). The interpretations are from my book, “Tarot of The Lotus Circle”, but you’ll have to use a little intuition to determine what it means to you personally. Have fun!

ARIES – March 21 to April 19

7 of Coins:  You are asked to do an accounting of your positive and negative thoughts, words and deeds. Yes, in a way, you are being graded. A slight adjustment in attitude could make a big difference in the end.

King of Cups: A male over 40, often fair in coloring, with kind/caretaking personality, in fields of medicine, the arts, will have influence over a very personal relationship.

TAURUS  – April 20 to May 20

6 of Coins: You’ve been feeling down, and not without cause. But something is about to occur to renew your faith in mankind and your Guides, like a favor or loan repaid that you had written off as a bad debt.

8 of Coins: If single, you are about to enter a relationship unlike any you have experience with. If committed, you’re about to enter new territory, like parenthood, or a change of roles.

GEMINI – May 21 to June 20

7 of Wands: Your intellect is all you need to get past the current obstacle. Step back, look at the big picture and find a way to do it smarter.

Ace of Wands: Someone new is attracted to your passionate nature and will be entering your life either through a work situation or a co-worker. An existing relationship will get a chance for a fresh start.

CANCER – June 21 to July 22

4 of Wands: You are being blessed with the energy of a harmonious environment. Enjoy the moment of peace rather than struggle to force some sort of action.

Princess of Swords: Be on the lookout for a communication or sign that will change your relationship status or circumstances.

LEO – July 23 to August 22

9 of Cups: Your wish is coming true, though it may not be as you expected. The Universe really does know best. Remember to say thank you to your Spirit Guides and human supporters. Take the time to celebrate with them.

The Heirophant: You will be spending asexual time with members of your own gender. Enjoyment will come from bonding with them in traditional ways. Use each other to work through relationship challenges, including setting up introductions.

VIRGO – August 23 to September 22

4 of Coins: Your unfounded fears have created an atmosphere of smoke and mirrors around you. Most of your worries are self-created, but they are magnetic. Stop attracting the worst by anticipating it.

Prince of Wands: A transition has begun, or soon will, with regard to an important work relationship that will ultimately affect a personal relationship.

LIBRA – September 23 to October 22

The Emperor: Masculinity and connection to technology are your sources of power.  Analysis, ambition and aggression will be your tools this month – use them wisely.

Strength: Your relationships are good and solid. If single, you are strong enough to go it alone until a suitable match comes along. The local gym is a great place to bump into that person.

SCORPIO – October 23 to November 21

3 of Coins: A Spirit Guide is standing by who is an expert in something you hope to accomplish. Trust that you will receive divine assistance as necessary and move forward confidently.

6 of Wands: You may have doubted it there for a while, but you will now receive evidence that you are the favorite. You win your lover’s heart or the respect of someone else whose opinion is important to you.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 to December 21

The Hermit: A spiritual teacher or human mentor is standing by to guide you through a dilemma. Go into your cave for a while, be silent and listen to the message being offered.

2 of Cups: Perfect. That’s the only word to describe the relationship you are in or very soon will be. Don’t question it or doubt that it’s real. It is and you deserve it.

CAPRICORN – December 22 to January 19

The Lovers: The atmosphere around you is tense with the need to make a very tough choice between extremes. There is no way to find a compromise on this one. More time is needed.

7 of Cups: You have multiple choices but seem to be waiting for a fantasy lover to appear. Connect your head to your heart then make a choice.

AQUARIUS – January 20 to February 18

Queen of Coins: A female, over the age of 35, often with fair to reddish coloring, either wealthy or in a career where she handles money or the careers of others (such as an agent), will have an influence over your month.

10 of Swords: You’ve reached the end of a relationship as it has been. Either work together to figure out how to rejuvenate it or let it go and move on. There is a light at the end of this particular tunnel.

PISCES – February 19 to March 20

4 of Swords: It’s okay to admit that the struggle has exhausted you. Give in to the urge to rest, bury the sword and let your Healer Guide take care of you for a little while.

The World: Everything you’ve been wishing for in a partner is right in front of you. All the obstacles between you have finally been cleared away.                                      

                        FEBRUARY, 2012 FORECAST

Sun in Aquarius, moving into Pisces 2/20; 2/3-Neptune moving into Pisces; 2/7-Full Moon in Leo; 2/9-Special Clue Day; 2/21-New Moon in Pisces; Mars in retrograde motion in Virgo thru 4/13; Saturn in retrograde motion in Libra thru 6/25

February is hosting a very important astro-event. But before I explain, there’s a little work required of each of you because this month’s forecast will be figured by You as an individual regardless of your zodiac sign.

First, think back to what you were doing in 1998, then do a quick review of the next 14 years of your life and deduce what area held the greatest challenges and upsets. Was it your work, money, health, spirituality, love or blood relationships? Wherever the greatest obstacles or trials occurred, it should help you to know that life is about to improve for you in that regard.

Since 1998, Neptune, the planet of dreams, imagination, wishes and artistic endeavors, has been shivering in icy Aquarius, the sign of technology and unemotional, grounded attachments. To say the least, this was not a comfy place for Neptune or artistic individuals, though it clearly aided the advancement of technology.

But on February 3rd, for the first time since 1862, Neptune is moving into its home sign of dreamy Pisces for a 14-year stay. Water signs (Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio) should notice the beginning of a shift the fastest, but almost everyone will be feeling an urge to move the focus from technology to the arts as the large planet moves fully into Pisces. Anyone in an artistic field who has been on the verge of giving up his or her struggle to succeed needs only to hold on a bit longer. Your turn has finally arrived! Another aspect of this once-in-a-lifetime placement is an increase in psychic phenomena and the fascination with all things mysterious. How cool is that going to be!

Meanwhile, keep in mind that Mars is in retrograde motion in restrictive Virgo through April 13, which means progress may be impeded during this restrained energy period. Ramming your head into a brick wall to force action will probably only get you a headache. On the plus side, Saturn, the Karmic Lord/lesson teacher is in retrograde motion in moderate Libra through 6/25, substantially reducing that planet’s ability to do its job of presenting challenges and pop quizzes.

Finally, because of a special alignment of planets and Neptune’s historical move, on February 9, most people should receive some sort of sign or message that will give a clue of the good things arriving in the coming decade.

So, with that information, just imagine how your life is about to improve, visualize yourself in that new life and remember to say “thank you” to the Universe when it becomes a reality.

NUMEROLOGY

When it comes to a long-range forecast that needs to be generalized for a large number of people, the tool I find to be most accurate is numerology. Very simply, numerology is the study of numbers and their connection to the human experience.

Within this study, our lives are divided into nine-year cycles, with each year carrying a specific energy, advantage or challenge. One important note—each numerological year runs from birthday to birthday, rather than January to December. That said, the following will help you calculate your current or upcoming year number in order to glimpse what 2011 has in store for you.

The first step in utilizing numerology is to condense the number in question (regardless of how many digits it initially contains) down to a single digit between “1” and “9”. This is done using simple addition.

In order to see what the coming year has in store for you, you need to know what number year you are in at this time and what energy you will be moving into on your next birthday. To figure that out, the calculation is made using your last birthday. For example, if your last birthday was November 7, 2010, the following would be the method of determining the energy or purpose of your current year:

A.  Write down the last birth date in numerical form with plus signs in between each whole number:     11 + 7 + 2010

B.  Each portion of the date must now be condensed to a single digit. The day is the 7th, which is already a single digit. To reduce the month and the year to single digits, add the individual digits together:

Month: 1 + 1 = 2
Year: 2 + 0 + 1 + 0 = 3

C.  Now you have three single digits that need to be added together:

Month: 2
Day: 7
Year: 3
12

D.  Since the total is a double-digit number, it still needs to be condensed to one:

12: 1 + 2 = 3

Thus, if your last birthday was November 7, 2010, you are currently in a “3” year and will be moving into a “4” energy next November.

The last step is to find out what your year number means in terms of what sort of energy or focus will influence your life for that year. Understand that these keywords can be applied to your career, finances, health, relationships and so on. In most cases, in a “9” year you make a decision as to which life area will be most important during the next nine-year cycle.

1 Beginning of a new cycle, fresh starts, leadership, new ideas or plans
2 Relationship issues (for better or worse), duality, double duty, options between two things or people
3 Playtime, free spiritedness, taking risks, gambling, good luck
4 Hard, possibly tedious and exhausting work, laying foundations, no time to relax, let alone play
5 Changes, transitions, halfway point in a cycle or major project, making adjustments in long-term plans
6 Domestic peace or harmony, comfortable home environment, rest and recuperation
7 Depending on previous responses to situations or behaviour leading up to this year, either upheaval and confrontations or spiritual connections and psychic expansion
8 Rewards for work done, favors returned, reaping the harvest of seeds previously sown
9 Endings, conclusions, cleaning, de-cluttering, making space (literally or figuratively) for a new cycle

This is just a brief glimpse into the world of numerology but I hope it helps you make the most of the upcoming new year.

SUN SIGN SEXY TRAITS

The Sun Sign, which is based on your date of birth, is only a piece of what makes you you, astrologically speaking, but it’s the part that is most familiar. Here’s how I interpret the signs from a Sexyscope point of view. You may want to note what the sign’s traditional image and key word means on a sexual level. 

AriesARIES – March 21 to April 19 – The Ram – ACTION 

Wham! Bam! Thank you, ma’am. Aries is the charge-full-speed-ahead sign, often without thinking the attack all the way through. Like any good military-type, romantic gestures and lengthy foreplay are merely a means to the final takeover. Don’t expect long-term loyalty with this one. Once the hill has been taken it’s no longer interesting. A full sub-dom relationship is the only kind an Aries will keep coming back to.

 RETROGRADE PLANETS 

Most people accept the concept of the moon having the power to affect Earth’s tides and growing seasons. Any emergency room nurse, firefighter or police officer will confirm how a full moon seems to alter people’s behavior patterns. That said, if one heavenly body in our solar system has an influence on us, it is likely that others might as well.

In astrology, retrograde motion refers to a planet that appears to be rotating in reverse (backward) of its natural spin. In the same way as the moon’s appearance has various phases from dark to full, retrograding bodies are only an optical illusion. However, the possible effect on Earth can be quite real. The specific problems that one may encounter are tied to the area(s) of life that the planet is believed to influence.

For instance, Mercury retrograde is rapidly becoming a phrase that explains computer glitches (any electronics/technology), communication foul-ups including contract confusion (or any legal document) and car breakdowns (transportation/travel in general). In the “Password” game, this category might be titled “things that can crash”.

Mercury goes into retrograde motion four times a year and tends to stir up anything from little annoyances to major chaos! The best advice is to be aware of what Mercury affects and try to work with the energy rather than getting frustrated by it. When Mercury goes retro it’s best to postpone important conversations, signing contracts, travel, purchases of new technology and purchases of any kind using the internet. Thus, my advice is prepare for travel glitches by giving yourself extra time and check and double-check everything you order before clicking the “order” button. Sometimes it helps just to expect something to go wrong so that if it does, it’s not quite as upsetting.

Now for the positive side – Mercury Retrograde is the perfect time to do REsearch, to REview plans, to REwrite a manuscript (or do edits), REanalyze your goals and REconsider a decision you’ve been pondering. Relationship-wise, it’s a time when old loves or acquaintances might suddenly REappear and allow you to REthink what you lost or what went wrong. It often creates a circumstance that helps you look back and close the door on something or someone that neeeds to be out of your life in order for you to go forward.
