Naomi Watts newest role as mother to her son, Alexander Pete, will be extremely grounding as Saturn transits her natal Mars in Virgo this year. Good thing, too. Turning 39 on Friday the 28th Watts' year ahead is marked by intense passions and potential conflicts in relationships. Saturn transiting her Mars in Virgo will give her the weight she needs to make tough decisions judiciously and with newfound insight into what matters most. With Venus trining her natal Saturn this won't be terribly difficult, it will simply be a year for setting new priorities that more firmly support what is truly important to her and hers and learning to appreciate the difference between the two. Happy Birthday, Naomi!
The Stars that You Are
Weekly Horoscopes: Remember to read for the sign on your ascendant too!
Maria Sharapova shot an ad for Nike where every person along the way to a big game sings her the song I feel pretty from West Side Story. Of course she arrives on court and promptly breaks her opponent's serve with a vengeance whereupon the song comes to a screeching halt. With the full moon falling across your sign this week and Mars opposing Pluto, you'll be proving you're more than just a pretty face to anyone fool enough to test it, too. With Mercury entering his shadow period in Libra there may be some questions from the ref, but by the time the dust settles you'll be long gone.
Decorating magazines are fond of saying all it takes to "refresh a room" is a new coat of paint and some pillows, but first you've got to know colors and textures. You can read all the magazines you want and it still won't grant you good taste. Fortunately that's not something you need to worry about, Taurus, and you've got one more week to decide on all those important details before it's time to execute your master plan. You'll have the vision, the words, and more importantly, the urge to say and do something you've been thinking about for awhile. This week, prepare, 'cause next week it's time to refresh.
Traditionally the tortoise wins the race with the hare because the hare falls asleep while the tortoise crosses the finish line. This week you're the hare, Gemini, but the good news is there's no way you'll fall asleep. The bad news is there is no way you'll fall asleep. You'll be lucky to catch a catnap, let alone a nap long enough to allow a tortoise to finish before you. The full moon on the 26th will highlight exactly how you can strategize crossing the finish line, but Mars opposing Pluto from your sign should see you through no matter what you do. Slow and steady will have to wait. Ready set, Go!
Leonardo da Vinci's famed painting of Mona Lisa is said to follow the viewer with her eyes, adding to her enigma and power, but frankly, I think we're all a bit paranoid. Come on people, it's a painting! The full moon on the 26th will answer some lingering paranoia you've harbored for awhile, but you won't be able to fully take action on your new insight until the following week when Mars enters Cancer. Don't worry, for now, just enjoy your new stability. If anyone IS looking at you it's not 'cause you did something wrong or 'cause they're about to. It's 'cause you are a marvel. Relax and enjoy it.
Good morning, Sunshine! You're waking up, coming alive again. As you move from the unconscious delta state to the conscious beta state you move through the theta state, that state which occurs between states. For centuries artists and mystics have sought to prolong that state with meditation and trances to induce an alpha state. With Venus opposing Neptune from your sign you've got one more week of all this creative energy flowing before it shifts. The full moon on the 26th will bring forth ideas long dormant. Get them out and commit them to paper, in the months to come you'll be glad you did.
Dexter is a cable TV show about a serial killer who only kills other serial killers. The eeriest thing about the show is how it forces the viewer to identify with someone who commits inhuman acts, which begs a re-examination of what it is to be human. Virgo, you're staring down a few years ahead of undergoing your own critical examination of what makes you the human you are. At times it will cause you to feel disconnected and apart. But you can't be a part without being apart. And we are only the sum of all our parts. Watch for some foreshadowing under the full moon this week on the 26th.
Snow White's evil stepmonster tried to kill the girl three times before she got her with a lovely shiny red apple, but Snow White didn't have to eat the darn thing, did she? Sometimes we do stupid things because we're too concerned about what other people will think. Pay attention under the full moon on the 26th, Libra, it may set you up for a spate of wishful thinking involving someone else that will come back to bite you. With Mercury entering his shadow period this week in your sign your mirror will tell you exactly what you WANT to hear. Fairest be darned! Ask who's the most righteous of all!
Since 2001 nine or more cruise ships a year have been added to the North American market. See, Scorpio? Millions of people pay really good money to be kept far away from any meaningful activity for weeks at a time. Here you've got the situation for free and all you do is complain! Never mind, only one more week left to this strange holding pattern you've been locked in lately. Then Mercury transits your sign freeing you from the worst of it. Of course, he's only there two weeks before he goes retrograde, but by then the damage will be done, and you'll be on dry land again. Sea legs and all.
A Bavarian politician running for election recently made headlines declaring marriages ought to end automatically at the end of seven years unless the married parties mutually agree to re-up their nup's. Sounds like one of yours, Sag. With Mars opposing Pluto in your sign and your ruler Jupiter marching through it you've got chutzpah to spare now. With Uranus squaring Jupiter in your sign events are bringing it out of you in really unexpected ways. You may shock people along the way, but the odds are good you'll be making us think twice about things we take for granted. You've got my vote.
Dude. Zebulon Simentov is the last Jew in Afghanistan. This Yom Kippur he'll celebrate the Jewish holy day of fasting by himself in the empty synagogue he's faithfully maintained for the past two years since the previous guardian died. Now that's dedication. Nothing new to you though, is it Cappy? Simentov merely illustrates your abiding principle: practicing faith IS faith. This week the full moon on the 26th rewards your persistence by highlighting any areas you've been stuck, and with Saturn now trining your sign none of it will prove a match for your keen commitment and clear vision. Mazel Tov!
Dean Martin immortalized the tune That's Amore in 1953 and Italian chain restaurants haven't been the same since. What do you think, Aquarius? When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine is it amore, or have you just had too much wine? This week the full moon on the 26th highlights all the romantic notions you've been harboring the past month and with Mercury and Mars aspecting your sign as well you might be ready to burst into song yourself. So when the moon hits you eye like a big pizza pie, I say, eat up, Aquarius! It's time you had your pizza and ate it too. That's love, man.
Well the initial inferno was squelched, but there remain some sparks to extinguish before everything gets back to normal, Pisces. Actually, I'm lying, it's never going to be normal again, not in the sense of "back the way it was," and the fire you just put out was only the opening salvo. But with your sixth sense you probably already knew that. With Saturn opposing your sign and Uranus transiting through it the upcoming two to three years are going to take everything you've got. It's time to show us what you're really made of and you know how authority figures love that. Who's your daddy now, Pisces?
Till next week, that's it for me, Marvelous Readers! Be Safe, Courteous, and Happy!
Remember! You Have a Future!!!!!!
