Aries (March 20-April 19) — To understand the mystery of you (or indeed of any person), it helps to have practical information. That is: you can learn about yourself through your interactions with others and in society — the arena in which your beliefs, values and qualities are actually tested. If something relating to the question of who you are deep down is puzzling you, it’s likely that simply observing yourself living your life is by far and away the easiest way to find the answers. Input from others you trust may be useful too. — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Taurus (April 19-May 20) — From time to time, the astrology will remind you to “know when you don’t know.” It’s important and useful advice; that said, this week you might benefit more from this variation: Know what you do know. As the Sun moves into your house of career and ambition, you may be feeling unsure of yourself and apt to forget how far you’ve come since this time last year, or even six months ago. I suggest you make a list of everything that you’ve achieved, and keep it safe so you can remind yourself. Then use that assurance. — by Amy Elliott.

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — In the 1950s, the Asch experiments demonstrated how people tend to conform to the pattern of their social group, even to the extent of giving obviously wrong answers to easy puzzles. The power of social reward and punishment is clearly strong; yet it cannot overcome free will. You have a choice now: you can cave in to whatever pressure is being exerted upon you; or you could decide to do entirely and precisely what you feel is right, regardless of what anyone else thinks. Take charge of your life. — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — It isn’t like you to want to throw caution to the wind. Yet you may be feeling a little restless; anxious to make clear and concrete progress, to move decisively forward. It would seem, however, that certain matters need resolving before you can take any great strides. You can safely view this as a necessary housecleaning and tying up of loose ends, or as an opportunity to turn your curiosity inward for a while. If you go with the flow, the change you’re seeking will almost certainly happen quite naturally. — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — The spotlight is now shifting to your relationships. You might wish to take some quality time with loved ones or even close friends. Remember that everyone brings something unique to your life, as you do to theirs. The best kind of connection is that in which each person feels emotionally and spiritually enriched and empowered, and able to be their best self. It’s also true that self-love and self-respect make it much easier to give love to others. Cultivate your friendship with yourself, and do so consciously and deliberately. — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — As you build on your recent progress, it would seem there’s a part of you that wants to undo it all and start over; probably owing to anxiety inherited from past events. It may be worth taking a little time to unravel that; though don’t let it pull you under. You’ve been held back by these worries long enough. You have work to do, and things to experience and enjoy: both of which are essential to your growth at present. As long as you learn enough to know the name of the problem, you can then cheerfully tell it to sod off. — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — You might well be feeling as if you’ve lived in a different place the last few weeks, in which nothing obeyed any known physical laws. Hopefully you’re now on easier turf. As you readjust, make sure you have sufficient time set aside for play and relaxation to help you close any gaps in your self-acceptance. It would seem your recent and present experiences are designed to help you leave behind, definitively, a piece of the past, and grow organically into a state of feeling much freer to express your truth. — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — Don’t underestimate the importance of a pleasant home, or at least a nice room. Everyone needs a space they can call their own, and in which they feel welcome and at peace. If yours needs a few improvements, this might be a good time to get started. This isn’t simply about the bare essentials. You want the aesthetics to be right and the atmosphere to be warm and open; whether to enjoy by yourself or with anyone you invite in. This is about having the best possible springboard from which to launch your dreams, whatever they are. — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — Yours is the sign that can be most easily described as being familiar with the new and unknown. That will sound paradoxical to others, but it probably makes sense to you. You usually feel at your best when you’re learning something, or exploring somewhere you’ve never been before. Sometimes that gets tricky when you’re trying to map out your internal territory. Yet this is where you may now need to look, in order to find your true passion. Fortunately, this kind of adventure involves its own excitements. — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — Rarely does any major effort worth the making beget instant results. Yet it seems you’re feeling under pressure to produce them. Try to rest a little easier. Even professional magicians, who literally do pull rabbits out of hats, train for a while to perfect their skill. This week there’ll be a further change, which will probably come through as a piece of the puzzle you perhaps didn’t realize you were missing. That ought to clarify things a little, and help you move further toward making your ambition a reality. — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
“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 Friend and Reader:
I know at least a couple of Aquarians who’ve dealt with major difficulties this year. I’m not sure how widespread that has actually been among those with an Aquarius Sun or Aquarius rising, but I suspect it has a lot to do with Chiron wrapping up its journey through Pisces: your house of what you value, including your body, your money, your talents and your self-esteem.
This year Chiron begins to move into Aries. This will shift the focus of your learning and healing agenda, and hopefully provide a little relief.
Chiron is not the only planet changing signs this year, however: Saturn is newly in Capricorn, and later this spring Uranus will enter Taurus. These shifts hold very specific changes for you: both in terms of your inner reality, and in terms of the overall environment you interact with.
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.
Recorded in pro-quality audio, you’ll receive two segments of astrology (at least 30 minutes each) and a tarot reading for the year ahead, plus an extended description of your sign. But what you really get is practical, accessible inspiration that will help you find a more empowering perspective on challenges, and the confidence to say yes to opportunities.
“Ah Eric — just listened to your reading. I was moved to tears by your closing words. Your passion, deep care and love always shine through; and you have the gift of all great teachers, of making one feel that one is being personally addressed, respected and taken care of.”
— Liz Glanville
Please note that when you pre-order your 2018 Aquarius Birthday Reading, you will secure the lowest price we offer –just $33. The price increases as Eric nears publication, and then increases again.
The Sun enters your sign this Friday, Aquarius — I wish you a happy birthday season, and much joyful use of your reading.
Yours & truly,
P.S. The 2018 Aquarius Birthday Reading is distinctly different from the Aquarius written reading available in the upcoming Art of Becoming annual project. It covers your key astrology in a different format and emphasis, capitalizing on Eric’s more intuitive, improvisational skills. The Birthday Reading also makes a fantastic gift for a loved one!
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — The Sun entering your sign will hopefully provide you with some clarity and peace of mind. Likely you’ll understand your emotional world a little better by now; in fact, you may partly be tempted to feel as if your work is done, and that you’re now a bodhisattva. It’s true you don’t have to dig away at your depths all the time, but it would certainly help if you continue to pay attention to your unconscious mind, dreams and feelings. You’re on the right track, and it would be a shame not to keep going. — by Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — For many, when the Sun enters the 12th house, it tends to signal a period of introspection and withdrawal. In this moment, however, the astrology seems to be saying almost the opposite. You appear nicely placed both to form new and unique ideas, and to distribute them among the people. Freedom to move both within and without is likely to be more important here than an emphasis on either. Having an organized timetable could help, along with paying attention to your intuition, which just now is salient even for you. — by Amy Elliott.
