Aries (March 20-April 19) — We are perhaps used to thinking of self-love as either undeserved, indicating selfishness, or something that is outside our control. In reality, it most often comes as a result of daily effort, which requires sustained commitment. Many people receive from early teaching the concept that they are somehow inherently tainted. Without exception, that is bullshit. You are who you are, and to honor that is a beautiful thing indeed. This week, be openly yourself. — by Amy Elliott.

Taurus (April 19-May 20) — You’re likely developing a clearer idea of where you want to head next in terms of your career ambitions. Keep your ears open for any opportunity that strikes you as especially congenial; this will probably help you focus your direction, in the sense of understanding what you actually want. Further, don’t be afraid to accept the generosity or the support of others. If good things are being freely offered to you, they are almost certainly fully earned. — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Gemini (May 20-June 21) — What seems to be emerging currently for you is an awareness of where you need to be investing the greatest portion of your time. You’ve probably already made significant changes in favor of a more sustainable routine. You likely need to go still further; it’s vital that you be your own best friend if you are to prioritize the goals that are most important to you, and to honor your dharma. Don’t let anyone convince you that you should be doing anything else. — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — The gift of intuition is a part of your existence, and may be especially strong right now; so be sure to listen. You are gradually beginning to recognize whether the various members of your social circle are doing you good, or not; and any need to act accordingly. You bring an abundance of beauty to the world, and are best off associating with those who can help you and others to see it. Strive for the experiences that really count, and for the people you can depend on substantively. — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — It’s true that our major relationships are often influenced by family patterns: we learn from how our parents treated us and how they interacted with each other, and that in turn tends to form our own behavior — at least to begin with. Yet a healthy partnership can work wonders in helping you to discard any script that does not serve either of you, and replace it with one that does. Someone who cares deeply about you may help you, this week, to do just that. — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — Venus entering one’s opposite sign may be considered the astrological signal that love is in the air. But for you, at this moment, that probably means more than simply getting together and having good times, or even making a commitment to someone. Love needs a purpose like a building needs a solid foundation; its expression is most beautiful and powerful when multiplied into a more universal compassion. Is it really worth settling for anything less? — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — You might experience some changes in how you perceive your relationships. Something in you appears to be driving you to dig deeper and, perhaps, to consider whether you may want additional moral support from a loved one. It’s also possible that you need to check for any habit that might be causing you stress. A simple alteration in your routine could do much to help you relax and spend more quality time with those you love best. Also, don’t forget to have fun. — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — This week may be a matter of striking a balance between getting in some serious playtime, on the one hand, and on the other taking space for deep diving into self-reflection. Both facets are likely to be essential in your present quest for growth, so it would help you to avoid passing judgment on either. Watch for any possible impulse to overreact or make a snap decision where really more time and thought is warranted. That’s almost certainly coming from below the surface. — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — Over the next month, your ruling planet Jupiter is preparing to station retrograde, which will give another dimension to the inner world that is now opening up for you. In the meantime, keep all possible communication channels open. You might consider your immediate surroundings as a laboratory in which you observe events from a somewhat detached perspective. Likewise, be transparent in your dealings with others. Now is the time to open your mind as fully as possible. — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — One useful piece of the puzzle in improving self-esteem is knowing that early programming can effectively drive you to overlook the praise of friends and loved ones. This is true even if you know rationally that the compliment is earned. If you find yourself doing this, resolve to be proactive in paying attention to what has been said, and admitting its probability. Write it down somewhere you can refer to it again. Over time, and with practice, this gets easier. — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Aquarius Birthdays 2018:
The Perfect Reading for Your Evolving Aquarian Life
“My takeaway from the Aquarius reading is a sense of PEACE. You really do UNDERSTAND what Aquarians are going through these days (and yes, because you do understand and explain the issues I am going through so well). Yes: you are an honorary Aquarian.”
Dear Reader with Aquarius Sun, Moon or Rising Sign:
When you look back on the last year (or listen to last year’s Aquarius Birthday reading), what do you notice most? Is it the difficulties you’ve struggled to overcome; or the new and creative ways you’ve approached life on your own terms; or the way you’ve interacted with those around you?
Life as an Aquarius is in the process of shifting: we’re between two eclipses that involve your sign; one of your ruling planets has changed signs (Saturn) and another one is gearing up to do so in May (Uranus). And Chiron is about to move into Aries, shifting the focus of your learning and healing agenda, and hopefully providing a little relief.
Both your inner experience and your outer reality are undergoing significant changes. Using his signature blend of astrological experience, therapy training, life coaching, and motivational speaking, Eric will cover these major changes to the sky (along with subtler points) in your upcoming 2018 Aquarius Birthday Reading.
You can still pre-order this reading for the lowest price we offer — you get two segments of astrology audio (at least 30 minutes each) plus a tarot reading for the year. It will be the perfect complement to your Art of Becoming annual reading (if you’ve ordered that, too): an intensive audio meditation you can download and listen to anytime, anywhere.
Wishing you a happy birthday season, and dynamic use of these eclipses.
Yours & truly,
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You will likely move further on your journey toward a better understanding of yourself by making a conscious decision to act in ways that honor who you are. This is somewhat about upholding the values you cherish. However, it would also seem that how you participate in your community and environment may provide you with an important clue to what’s going on behind the scenes. That area may feel mysterious, but the facts are available if you look for them. — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — If you’ve been a bit out of sorts lately, this week you’ll probably start to feel decidedly more like yourself. This may be as simple as a change of the wind, which might make you wonder what on Earth all the fuss was about. That should become clearer as the Sun approaches your sign, and you’ll hopefully begin to see the pattern as the threads draw together. Remember that the main difference between weather and climate is roughly that between a day and a century. — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
