“If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.” - Marcus Aurelius

No Fear!

Scared of the future? Unsure of what is ahead? Feeling unsettled about what’s in the news? In one way or another, we all are. The key is knowing what’s worth spending your energy on. Sometimes there are legitimate reasons to have trepidation, but most of the time it’s our imagined fears that keep us from the happiness we deserve. Only by looking at what frightens us can we free ourselves from its confines.

This is the month to have No Fear!

Fear interrupts the flow of life force, bringing negativity and depression to the door, trapping us in a stagnant pattern - what a waste! Know that many of the fears we have stem from a lack of self belief. When you’re fearful you shut down possibilities! If you are scared of a situation take some action to turn it around. Write down your fear, acknowledge it and plan on what steps you can take to overcome it. In doing so you bring greater confidence to yourself and open up the window to opportunity!

Astrologically, April may bring some challenges, but that doesn’t mean you have an excuse to give in to worry and self-sabotage your personal progress! While we all experience twists and turns in life, this month offers a positive wake-up call for facing our apprehensions, finding more confidence and growing greater courage.  This is the month to work through fears!

In the weeks ahead we will especially need to honour our inner faith and outer fortitude as we experience a Cardinal Grand Cross aligning in the heavens. The planets Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto all square each other very closely at 13.5 degrees of the Cardinal signs - Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. This alignment of 4 squares (with 2 oppositions) will be especially strong between 20th-24th April. Regardless of what sign you were born under, these zodiac positions are somewhere in your chart. Where they are located will tell you where you will be effected most.

A Grand Cross indicates stress or conflict, with a demand for some immediate action to be taken. Positive change is an important ingredient for resolving the challenges we face now, so releasing what is not in keeping with our stronger and courageous selves is paramount. At the same time we are being asked to make decisions that may involve external forces, which may again have to do with being inwardly strong and having NO FEAR.

Globally, this alignment could indicate a time of political posturing, economic distress, cyber upsets, climate upheaval or government changes. Although it seems we deal with news of these things on a daily basis, it will be magnified during the exact alignment of the Cardinal Grand Cross. That doesn’t mean we’re headed for disaster – but the road to change can be bumpy, and sometimes it takes a few shocks to the system to break up blockages. So don’t worry, hang on and try to enjoy the ride!

Besides the Grand Cross, we also have a Solar Eclipse and a Lunar Eclipse this month! Eclipses represent changing circumstances and show a potent time for shifts to occur in our lives. Eclipses bring to light truths and information, giving us knowledge that we can then translate into power for change. In the weeks ahead we will also experience Venus moving into Pisces, Mercury going into Aries, the Sun shining into Taurus and Pluto going retrograde! What does all this mean for YOU?

Here’s your general need-to-know Astrological info and Motivational thoughts for April:

5 April - Venus moves into Pisces: The thread that holds us together! Our connections with others give us strength. Universal love, higher minded awareness, sympathetic compassion and heart-centered emotion are the keys to finding common ground! Look for commonalities rather than differences when facing conflict with others. If we are gentle with ourselves and each other we can now embrace a greater understanding of our similarities and strengths and what makes us One. *

7 April - Mercury moves into Aries:  Assertive Attitude! This is a time to push forward with our unique self expression and original ideas. We are compelled to connect and communicate with others but will need to cultivate greater care, patience and harmony to be properly acknowledged. We all want to be heard, we all have something important to say – so listen at least as much as you talk! And act with courtesy for others even as you push yourself forward. As many of our leaders should keep in mind, might does not make right!

15 April - Full Moon in Libra (Total Lunar Eclipse):  Mine, Yours, Ours! This Eclipse illuminates the need to find balance between our personal desires and the requirements of others. Although we seek to be independent we are still attached to those we share this Earth with. This is a time of releasing selfishness, coming to a better balance of sharing and finding a happy medium between mine, yours and ours. When dealing with relationship matters and outside forces, let go of fears - otherwise you will be kept from the happiness you deserve.

15 April - Pluto in Capricorn goes Retrograde:  Reboot your Transformation! While combating outside forces, it’s the inner battles that demand attention. Now is the time to seek greater stability so that our outer balance is not thrown off. Redirecting energies toward harmonious change will prove better than destroying the entire plan. Renewal comes by realizing the greater good for all is what leads us to evolution.

19 April - Sun moves into Taurus:  Beautiful You, Beautiful Earth! As our energies turn toward greater appreciation of the natural grace of Mother Nature, we are reminded of the simple pleasures and joys in our lives. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, and yet all around us spring countless examples of the loveliness of our planetary home and the life it harbors. As we seek these out we find within ourselves greater gifts: comfort, creativity and cooperation. Appreciate and celebrate our home, the Earth! 

20 April to 24 April - Cardinal Grand Cross aligns exactly (Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto all square each other):  Keep Calm, Carry On! A great deal of change occurs as this key alignment brings an uneasy time. But with adjustments come opportunity as we are able to refocus, bring to light and address issues that have been building up for some time. The changes that emerge from this alignment will shape our future for years to come, so make them changes for the better!

23 April - Mercury moves into Taurus:  Slowly but surely! Our thoughts, communications and interactions are now more careful, practical and deliberate. We seek to establish steady, more tangible and stead-fast plans in order to bring forth abundance. Our senses are heightened now as well, helping us to better appreciate the beauty within ourselves and those we share ideas with. Reflecting carefully on our deeply held values and what we want to create for our future is highlighted.

29 April - New Moon in Taurus (Annular Solar Eclipse):  Feel it, Hear it, Touch it, Heal it! This represents a time of new beginnings after making adjustments. We now establish long term goals in order to move forward with greater stability, assurance and growth. As we break old patterns we come into a time of positive inner change that can manifest in greater prosperity in our outer world. Appreciation for all that we have and all that we relate to emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically is honoured. As we heal and extend love and gratitude to one another we create the opportunity for greater happiness.

ALL MONTH - Mars in Libra Retrograde: Rethink give and take! With the action planet continuing backward in the sign of balance, we need to reevaluate the mine-yours equation in our lives. As we reconsider the harmony we strive for with others, we find greater clarity on what we can do to improve the positive energy in our own lives. Creative impulses, artistic expressions and inquiring inclinations also become more introspective, contemplative and meditative. Just watch out that in our need to see both sides of a situation we don’t get hung up in indecision. What area of your life needs more balance? You will find out now!

Outer Planets in their current positions: Saturn in Scorpio, Uranus in Aries, Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn. The outer planets stay in a sign for quite a long time, so their effect on us is often gradual:

  • Saturn in Scorpio represents a time of uncovering our fears and insecurities, gaining awareness of how they have undermined our progress, and by getting to the root of the issues we can focus on solutions.

  • Uranus in Aries is about greater freedom for unique forms of self expression, liberation from oppression, and inventive pioneering action. - Neptune in Pisces is all about greater spiritual awareness, creative inspiration and intuitive insight. We-are-all-one compassion is emphasized along with humanitarian expression.

  • Pluto in Capricorn, which will be in Capricorn until 2023, represents the transforming of our society, government, world order and mother earth, with the misuse of power being brought to light.

**Warmth, Heart and StarLight to all Sweet Star Seekers for a wonderful beginning to 2014 and a marvelous year ahead! May this new year bring each of you much abundance, joy and fulfillment! Lots of Love to YOU along with an open-armed welcome to 2014!**

MOTIVATIONAL ASTROLOGY FORECAST - MARCH 2014

Posted on March 3, 2014

“Change your thoughts and you change your world” - Norman Vincent Peale

Creating Calm

March flows in with greater feelings of peace, tranquility and gentle energy. We can all take this opportunity to make ease a part of our daily lives, if we will it.

It’s tempting to blame external sources for our lack of inner harmony, yet the stresses we feel are not the source – it’s our mindset that causes lack of calm. Calm is something that can be created any time we want. It is within us always, waiting to be acknowledged. We choose how we are going to react to situations in life – consciously or unconsciously. By being internally calm, pressures are lessened. Challenges won’t disappear, but will become manageable, less disturbing and easier to handle when we cultivate calm. 

This month encourages us to be mindful of our ability to create greater ease, peace and harmony in our lives. Even when we are facing difficulties, by focusing on calm within ourselves, our relationships or work, we can create greater serenity and with it greater happiness.

March brings an additional gift: not only can we create more calm but we can also cultivate more of our inner artistry. This is the month where Pisces/Neptune energies encourage us to open wide our imaginations, honour our hidden talents and connect to greater spiritual awareness. In the weeks ahead we can all be artists and dreamers as we embrace the realm of feeling. Creating calm to swim hand-in-hand with your inner creative muse will bring you greater joy and ease this month. And that is my wish for you.

What are some of the standout Astrological energies happening for us in the weeks ahead? With the Celebration of the Equinox, two New Moons, Mercury going Direct, Venus moving into Aquarius and a strong Pisces vibe, we are are offered much insight into the creative calm and artistry we can use this month. Here’s your need-to-know Astrological info and Motivational thoughts for March: 

1 March - New Moon in Pisces – Renew our Beliefs: We now have theopportunity to renew our beliefs and feelings about ourselves and our Universe. Greater intuitive, spiritual and creative energies emerge to assist us in moving forward with our affirmations. For the next few weeks the stage is set for strengthening our intuitive, sympathetic and empathic natures. More artistry and spiritual expression can be brought forward as we revitalize ourselves, using more of our imagination and feeling natures. This is the go-ahead for beginning new creative or intuitive endeavours, expressing your romantic nature or just being more in touch with the Universal Mind.

1 March - Mercury in Aquarius is Direct! Green Light, Go: With the planet of communication going forward, our plans, projects and procedures can too! This is our signal to jump into all those endeavours that have been on hold, stuck or in limbo! In the sign of Aquarius, our thoughts and expressions are more inventive and unique, helping us to see things from a new point of view! We are now more socially oriented, humanitarian in nature, and have a great opportunity to say YES to joining like-minded groups! This period focuses on how individual ideals can contribute to a collective voice!


1 March - Mars in Libra goes Retrograde – Rethink give and take: With the energy planet moving backward through the sign of relationships, this is a time to reevaluate the mine-yours balance in our lives. As we reconsider the harmony we strive for with others, we find greater clarity on what we can do to improve the positive vibes in our own lives. Our creative impulses, artistic expressions and inquiring inclinations also become more introspective, contemplative and meditative. Just watch out that in our need to see both sides of a situation we don’t get hung up in indecision. What area of your life needs more balance? You can find out now!

2 March - Saturn in Scorpio goes Retrograde – Introspection and investigation: We are encouraged now to reflect upon our fears, doubts and insecurities – uncovering the causes and finding the root element of what is holding us back. As we emotionally and mentally investigate our inward issues we can uncover much about what undermines our progress. By getting to the heart of the matter we can focus more on solutions, gaining strength to surmount any challenge.

5 March - Venus goes into Aquarius – Shake it up babe: The Goddess of Love and Creativity planet makes up for its recent sober stint in Capricorn by shimmying into advant-guard Aquarius! We now explore and embrace new love energy, creative self expression, innovative thought and inventive communication. Our social circle expands, opening up the opportunity for unique and exciting connections and participation in the group dynamic. Our need to share and appreciate love, artistry and future-oriented thought is highlighted.

6 March - Jupiter in Cancer goes Direct – Self Nurturing is important too: With the planet of expansion going forward in the sign representing support and nurturing, we are encouraged to move ahead with greater self care, as well as consideration toward others. Deeper contemplation of all things s
piritual, philosophical and metaphysical is highlighted. We are prompted to look at our motivations and the big reasons behind who we are and what we do. Issues with family, home and domestic concerns move ahead while we also find greater intuitive awareness. “Picture” what you want to create for greater healing, support, care and nurturing going forward!

16 March - Full Moon Virgo – Don’t pick it apart: A full on-time for tending the details, getting more efficient and planning things out. Beware of being too analytical, critical and perfectionistic of ourselves and those in our lives. This emotional day is best used to get organized, get rid of the clutter and persevere on detailed projects. Weed out now what is no longer supportive to your emotional, spiritual and physical health. By letting go of the old habits, reactions and general baggage, you make way for a healthier, happier and more holistic you.


17 March - Mercury goes into Pisces – Imagination into Manifestation: Honouring our sensitivity and encouraging our inner creative muse allows us to bring our visualizations into manifestation. Our thoughts and expressions are now more sensitive, intuitive, spiritually focused and feeling. This marks a new cycle of empathy and greater appreciation of our imaginations, artistry, visual sense and meditative mindset. We are more responsive to gentler, kinder, sympathetic connections and in turn we reach out with greater love and romantic expression to those we care about.

20 March - Sun moves into Aries – Celebrate the Equinox: As we change seasons we are given a prime time for fresh starts, initiating new projects, releasing fear and doubt and taking on new exciting endeavours! We find greater courage now to overcome challenges that have previously held us back, as a braver and more pioneering spirit emerges. This is a great time to initiate new plans and to consider ways of strengthening your self belief!

30 March - New Moon in Aries – Break out of your shell: This is your signal to reboot and embrace new beginnings! This is a time for finding greater independence and freeing yourself from restrictions. Get your intentions sorted and make an effort to alter your routine! Start something today that will help further your goals, empower your dreams and bring you greater emotional courage. Go ahead and take the challenge, jump in with confidence and express your inner warrior!


Outer Planets in their current positions: Saturn in Scorpio, Uranus in Aries, Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn. The outer planets stay in a sign for quite a long time, so their effect on us is often gradual:

Saturn in Scorpio: represents a time of uncovering our fears and insecurities, gaining awareness of how they have undermined our progress, and by getting to the root of the issues we can focus on solutions.

“Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.” - Greg Anderson

Grab a Ticket, Your 2014 Journey Begins!

The best gift we can receive is a new beginning – and January gives us that! As 2014 prepares for take off, we start this new year trip with great expectations of what lies ahead. January’s not only the commencement of a new cycle but a chance to make a break from the past, renew ourselves and refocus on our goals for the future!

January sets the standard for the next twelve months to come. We are now given the power to take control of the areas that challenged us in 2013, and forge ahead with greater strength, discipline and determination. The Astrological energies occurring in the weeks ahead help us to manifest the happiness we seek – and so in knowing what is happening in the heavens we can better prepare for our work here on earth. As above, so below.

With TWO New Moons occurring this month, a strong shift from Capricorn to Aquarian energy, Mars seeking harmony in Libra and Venus and Jupiter retrograde, we are offered hints on how to get the most out of this first month of 2014! Here’s your need-to-know Astrological insights and Motivational thoughts for January:

1 January - First New Moon of 2014 in Capricorn: Serious Feelings! We are encouraged to get real with our plans, move forward with our goals and cultivate greater patience, fortitude and deliberate action. Establishing new foundations and structures in life now brings greater emotional balance and security later. Begin something today that will help you grow your future dreams!

11 January - Mercury in Capricorn moves into Aquarius: Think outside the box! For the next three weeks our thoughts and expressions are more inventive and unique, helping us to see things from different points of view and be more socially oriented. This is an excellent time to join up with like-minded groups, where the individual ideal can contribute to a collective voice. Take up new subjects, grow your mind and your unique form of self expression.

15 January - Full Moon in Cancer: Feel it! This large lunar energy in its natural sign helps us consider what we need for our emotional security in the year ahead. It also encourages a greater sense of nurturing – for those we care about, and toward ourselves. This is a great time to review the connection we have with others and how we can make things better in the months ahead. The feelings we share now and the innovative plans we put forth can assist with domestic progress and real estate dealings.

19 January - The Sun in Capricorn moves into Aquarius: Transcend ordinary limitations! This is a time of much mental stimulation, liberation and new awareness. We are encouraged to express ourselves uniquely, to honour our individuality, and to embrace innovative concepts. True liberty grows out of freedom of thought, and our communications and connections with others brings greater understanding and alignment with the universe. This is an ideal time for reaching out with greater humanitarian energy, with the true awareness that we are all one!

30 January - Second New Moon of 2014 in Aquarius: Break on through! A day to break through boundaries and limitations, feeling a new sense of liberation! Express greater compassion and humanitarian feeling toward worthy causes, including yourself! Connect with like-minded friends and associates now – not only for the joy of sharing but also to remind one another how unique and special we truly are! Start something today that stimulates your mind and emotions!

Venus in Capricorn stays Retrograde all month: Practical Love! What did you learn about love and relationships last year? This is your opportunity to put that knowledge to use! Get clear on your partnership vision for 2014 by understanding what didn’t work before. It’s great to know what you want from another but consider what you can contribute to make your love connections better.

Mars in Libra all month:Keep the balance! The energy planet continues to seek harmony in work and relationships, now and for the next 6 months! During this time we seek greater diplomacy in our dealings as well as more creativity in our interactions. In our need to see both sides of a situation, beware of vacillating between the pros and cons. Also watch passive-aggressive behaviour – in yourself and your associates. Instead of provoking others, use the energies at hand to express diplomacy and artistry.

Jupiter in Cancer stays Retrograde all month: Patience before growth! With the planet of abundance moving backwards this month, we are directed to cultivate greater patience in reaching our goals. Deeper consideration and contemplation of all things spiritual, philosophical and metaphysical is highlighted. We are prompted to look at our motivations and the big reasons behind who we are and what we do. Issues with family and home may require extra care, while we also focus on our inner world. “Picture” what you want to manifest in 2014!

Outer Planets in their current positions: Saturn in Scorpio, Uranus in Aries, Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn. The outer planets stay in a sign for quite a long time, so their effect on us is often gradual:

  • Saturn in Scorpio represents a time of uncovering our fears and insecurities, gaining awareness of how they have undermined our progress, and by getting to the root of the issues we can focus on solutions.
  • Uranus in Aries is about greater freedom for unique forms of self expression, liberation from oppression, and inventive pioneering action.
  • Neptune in Pisces is all about greater spiritual awareness, creative inspiration and intuitive insight. We-are-all-one compassion is emphasized along with humanitarian expression.
  • Pluto in Capricorn, which will be in Capricorn until 2023, represents the transforming of our society, government, world order and mother earth, with the misuse of power being brought to light.

**Warmth, Heart and StarLight to all Sweet Star Seekers for a wonderful beginning to 2014 and a marvelous year ahead! May this new year bring each of you much abundance, joy and fulfillment! Lots of Love to YOU along with an open-armed welcome to 2014!**
