Few things in the world are as neat as we want them to be. Anyone who presumes to know someone’s feelings in advance has pretty much left the human realm and entered some other realm. You’re even having a difficult time deciding what is important to you. You can doubt all you need to doubt, but that does not change a basic fact: in one certain situation, someone really does care how you feel. But all of this is getting a bit soggy, and you have some important mountains to climb. Doing something ambitious would help you clear your mind.

In late December (ages ago, I know), you had a revelation; you came to a point where you truly felt like you were waking up. Yes, it may have been overwhelming, too, but you were definitely feeling the cosmic spark plug go off in your brain. Not a lot of time has passed, and in truth you’ve accomplished an enormous amount — and none of what you’ve done counts for a digression from your true purpose. Nor is it exactly what you would be doing; and as Venus gets ready to make its return to your sign, you get to reorient on your deeper desires, your precise needs and take a little bath in divine nourishment and pleasure.

Whatever challenges you faced in your most intimate relationships earlier in the summer, you can now see the sense and meaning of. To say that whatever developments you experienced shaped your character and helped you come to a new understanding with yourself is an understatement. While you can’t necessarily put it into words, you seem to have been left with a strange sense of clarity, the ability to see through yourself, and no need to analyze your life circumstances. This can lead to many unusual opportunities to be close to people, on terms that are strangely equal for this world.

Okay, that was a big one. How did you do? You actually seem to be skating along just fine; thinking quickly is one of your strong suits, when you have the incentive go get off your butt and do it. Although the pressure is abating, I suggest you keep your brain warm and your hand on the gear shift. Because when you discover how valuable and worthwhile a particular idea you’ve been working with really is, you will notice you’ve got a lot of incentive. But beware: this idea is going to change you. It’s anything but a neutral force. And by all indications, it’s about to be turned loose on you and the world.

What you need is experience, not theory. It’s easy to chew everything over in hypothetical form, especially if you live mostly on the Internet. Genuine exploration happens through your physical body. Even if you’re a theoretical physicist, a designer of bridges or professor of philosophy, you don’t really know something for sure until there is an actual experiment performed. I suggest you set about doing that experiment, by which I mean anything prompted by an idea, which also has an uncertain outcome. You might do something like driving to an odd part of the countryside, intentionally getting lost. Visit some strange part of town or some other city, where you would never ordinarily go and where you know nobody, and do something the natives do. Take any chance to immerse yourself in unfamiliar environments, and to expose yourself to points of view you totally disagree with. That will stoke your creative (and social) fires brilliantly.

Your faith in yourself seems to inflate and deflate like a balloon, though at the moment it’s building rapidly. I suggest you focus this through your work, and by that I mean the next phase of your work that’s unfolding. Now, ‘work’ may be the wrong word here; the feeling is more like an erotic craving to do or accomplish something, as if your happiness depends on it. So this isn’t work in the sense of effort, but rather connecting a deep desire to the focus you need in order to accomplish it. Don’t worry about whether you can do it; the thing your happiness actually depends upon is your willingness to take the chance. The conditions are such right now that you have the combination of raw desire, a good idea and the discipline to go at it every day. Try this for a while and see where you end up. Remember that creative impulses need a lot of guidance on this plane of reality, which includes deflecting any opinions contrary to what you want.

Aquarius 2017

Monday Morning Horoscope for Dec. 25, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Many planets have, nearly in unison, entered your most mysterious house in all of astrology: the 12th, which for you is the sign Capricorn. The 12th is so mysterious because it’s like the hidden dimension of the psyche — the secret room behind the bookshelf, the basement below the trapdoor covered by a rug, or the abandoned wing of a massive hotel. More accurately, it’s akin to the commonplace dream of the extra room in one’s home, which, when entered, turns out to be endless. Notably, you’ve had Pluto moving through this realm for nearly a decade, which has been challenging and a little scary. Now, more substantial, directly helpful planets have entered. The result is to grant you a kind of Shamanic quest: not magical powers but rather the necessity to bridge your inner world with your outer one; and to allow your life to be guided by the dreamtime. First and foremost, pay attention to your dreams. Everything else will start to make sense.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Dec. 18, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Most contemporary astrologers use Uranus as the planet associated with Aquarius, without mentioning that the original planet, from the days of Aristotle, was Saturn. (If you understand Saturn, you will understand Aquarius and vice versa.) This week, Saturn changes signs, entering the other realm it’s responsible for, your neighboring sign Capricorn. Also called your 12th solar house, this angle of your chart is about your interior world, and Saturn’s entry here describes an extended phase of claiming your inner knowledge. There’s also something here about negotiating a new relationship with the fears of your ancestors, and their psychological baggage. Most of the spiritual challenges you face predate you by generations. Your life will be easier if you sort out what is theirs from what is yours; this would include most of your fears and your anxieties; any guilt you may experience; and a certain rigid quality that you just don’t need and don’t want. As with yoga, rock climbing or physical therapy, this will require you to stretch, and you will get the benefits of flexibility.

Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope for Dec. 14, 2017, #1180 | By Amy Elliott

Having hosted Pluto in your 12th house for several years, you can be confident that Saturn is not likely to make a huge commotion when it arrives. Instead, it will probably lend some structure to what may at times have felt like a somewhat chaotic and bewildering journey. You may well feel more in control of your developmental path, which is great as long as you’re willing to carry on with the development. If you slam on the brakes, you’re liable to skid. Remember that the key is honesty, and doing what’s right.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Dec. 11, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Mars has now entered the leadership angle of your chart, joining Jupiter (the bringer of knowledge and expansion) and Vesta (the goddess of service and devotion). This is a calling. I don’t know whether you’re feeling it; or, if you are, whether you’re counting it as something real. It most certainly is. Your job is to bring an organizing principle to the swirling chaos of the world. Define one purpose, and let everything organize itself around that. Persuade with a blend of one-third emotional appeal and two-thirds psychology. Set the example of showing up every day, on time, all day. The very essence of Aquarius is being the sign of the people. Whether this is for friendly, socially progressive causes, or lock-step ideological purposes, is up to the person wielding the energy. Just remember, you’re depicted in the zodiac holding an urn of water. Right now, people are thirsty for ethics, for love and for sincere leadership.

Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope for Dec. 7, 2017, #1179 | By Amy Elliott

Mars in your house of career and ambition will likely urge you, over the next few weeks, to consider — and perhaps reconsider — your life goals. It would seem you have an untapped well of potential or skill, and may need to recalculate to account for how you’ll use it. This means having faith in yourself, and is probably vital to affirming who you are. So think big. Rather than placing limitations on your ideas, imagine how they could be even more audacious.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Dec. 4, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

You may have noticed the ease with which you can find yourself in the middle of utterly meaningless controversies. There’s a little storm brewing around your ruling planet Saturn, and it’s taking place in one of the most visible parts of your chart. Rather than go into hiding, I suggest you practice your mastery and learn how to handle yourself in public situations like a pro. Be mindful of all the misinformed weirdos scampering about, pretending to be experts in everything until they blow up the neighborhood. Keep calm, and make sure everything you say is put into language so clear that there’s absolutely no mistaking your meaning or your intent. Stay focused on your purpose. You have made many gains the past few years of your life, and now the age is about to turn. Other priorities will soon take over, though it’s important to preserve every last bit of what you’ve gained. Do so gently, intently, and mindfully.

Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope for Nov. 30, 2017, #1178 | by Amy Elliott

Everyone knows Aquarians are pretty special. You have certain advantages: at the best of times, you can read the cosmos as if it were a book. Frankly, we mere mortals often have trouble keeping up. Yet you need to keep in mind that you’re also a human being in a living body with actual needs. If you haven’t quite reached Nirvana yet, that’s perfectly OK. You still possess wisdom that undoubtedly benefits your community. You can even occasionally (gasp!) have a bit of fun. Go on, it’s allowed.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Nov. 27, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

You have more creative things to do with your energy than engage in controversies. To the extent that you want to challenge consciousness, or experiment with ideas, put out your most creative expressions rather than wrangling or wrestling with people. By all indications, you have some innovative things on your mind. You want change; you want progress; you want the world to be a better place. Heck, you’re an Aquarian; of course you do. Now you’re at a point where tangible choices you make and actions you take can indeed move some energy. Yet be aware that you are the person who must be open-minded, flexible and circumspect (which means looking at any situation from many different points of view). In the first instance and the last, making the world a better place is about changing and evolving your own thinking. And then maybe along the way, you can have an influence on other people who will benefit from your efforts.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for December 2017, #1177 | By Eric Francis

Astrology has a place where all the missing socks can be found, and the Bic lighters and guitar picks; the missing people and misplaced ideas and lost dreams. This is the same place where we tend to carry our fears, and the baggage of our ancestors and of society itself. It’s also where our deepest potential can be found: your actual desire for who you want to be. It’s called the 12th house (by far the most mysterious and complex of the lot). Saturn, the planet that in traditional astrology rules your sign, is about to dive in. This will take you on a behind-the-scenes tour of your psyche. You’ll be invited to make friends with all of who you are, and to reclaim what you’ve disowned or denied. Many would find this to be daunting, even frightening. You are made of stronger stuff than that, though to the degree that you face your fears, you will also encounter your most deeply held wants and needs. Embark on this journey with an open heart and a sense of adventure. You’re being invited to do what so few people attempt, much less succeed at: to let go of your preconceptions and get to know yourself in an entirely new way. Do this willingly and you’ll discover the keys to freedom.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Nov. 20, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

You seem to be living your life out in the open, where everyone can see you — by which I mean your inner private life. You may have an interesting time of that this week, as so much is developing in the angle of your chart where this is all taking place. I suggest you not worry about it, and remember that you’re immune from many of the normal types of embarrassment that would make other people cringe. And at this stage, you have little choice but to let your private business be a matter of public discussion. There’s something useful about it; and the truth is, you’re going through a kind of initiation. Part of how this is happening is you’re reckoning with the contrasts between how you perceive yourself, and how others perceive you. Learn what you can while you’re here. Saturn will soon enter Capricorn, and you’ll want your private life to be just that.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Nov. 13, 2017, #1176 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

This week has the potential to be an astounding time for you professionally. You seem to get some long-overdue recognition that you genuinely deserve. Yet you must not take anything for granted: that’s the theme of the world right now. You must be the arbiter of truth in your own life and, moreover, keep a close eye on the financial compensation you receive for your work. You are likely to be undervaluing the worth of your creative products. What happens this week will give you some leverage to bootstrap your way to a better place. Bootstrapping is a concept once associated with the building of bridges: the idea goes, a bridge is easier to build if it’s already there. So the first thing to do is to create a basic structure over the river so that it’s easier to get the permanent structure in place. You already have that basic structure built. Get busy with the rest.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Nov. 6, 2017, #1175 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

You’ve been getting the message lately: you need to lighten up. This will take practice, though once you see how well it works, you’ll have additional incentive to stick with the program. You have significant and realistic goals you’re working with, and it will take some time and effort to materialize them. What will help you the most right now is a kind of public relations campaign. I don’t mean writing press releases: I mean relating to friends, colleagues, clients, customers, and whatever you think of as your ‘public’ in a direct and candid way. Go to them rather than having them come to you. Putting this in the simplest terms possible, reach out to people who matter to you, and with whom you want to make contact — and connect. At minimum this would best be voice to voice, though you will go a long way if you bring your body along; go for eye contact.

Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope for Nov. 2, 2017, #1174 | By Amy Elliott

This is the time of year during which many cultures remember their ancestors. You’re often so forward-thinking that it pays, from time to time, to recollect where you came from and how your memories and experience can bolster your identity. Consider especially the particular people who inspired you, the stories with the most edifying conclusion, the remembrances that warm your heart the most. Let them enrich your soul in these deep Scorpio evenings.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Oct. 30, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Your whole experience of life depends on how you feel. This is true of everyone; though especially for you right now, your reality is “receptor mediated.” As the receiver of your own thoughts, feelings, sensory data and experiences, you decide what they mean, and you will make that decision based on how you feel. In the end, that works out to how you feel about yourself. Note that narcissism, egotism and being conceited have nothing — as in, nothing — to do with feeling good about oneself. Those are the toxic substitutes. Embracing and accepting who you are is a calm, steady inward state that does not require proof or demonstration. You will have proof enough when you see the world more benevolently, and you understand that your role is to help any way you can. In another era, your current chart would be about ambition. You’re in an excellent position to be of meaningful service.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for November 2017, #1173 | By Eric Francis

With Jupiter, the Sun and Mercury traveling through Scorpio, the potent midheaven angle of your solar chart, you’re experiencing a calling to success and achievement. On some level, that equates to the ability to do good or ill. We live in an age when accountability is typically either a thing of the past or something enforced on people. You need to subject yourself voluntarily to an evaluation process. Make sure that older, wiser mentors who are not afraid to disagree with you are involved in your decision-making process. Because you have influence, and because your aims are likely to develop into something bigger than you’ve planned, you must at all times keep one eye on the law of unintended consequences. It’s often said that knowledge is power, and the one thing that Aquarius of all the signs must be aware of is what you do not know. Understanding that your decisions have impact and that you don’t know everything will help keep you in check effectively enough to make better decisions. Be cautious of the desire to accomplish everything at once, something that could vex you over the coming year. Rather, work from a list of priorities, which you keep flexible with ongoing re-evaluation. This will help prevent you from getting stuck on anything, and ensure that you stay fairly close to being in the moment — and facing toward the future.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Oct. 23, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

This week’s astrology is a study in ethics. Your solar chart describes you in a position where you can do just about anything you want. You’re in a position of unusual influence, and people see you that way. You’re visible, and you know how to make that work for you. Yet Venus, Mars and Vesta, moving through your 9th house of spiritual matters, law and justice, are urging you to be judicious. Take a balanced view in all things, and consider everything to be a matter of relationship. That is: today, every choice you make influences many people around you. You have the ability to make that influence positive, constructive and cooperative. You can also go off on your own and pretend that nobody really matters, which is not really your style. Yet with the Sun, Mercury and Jupiter going over the top of your solar chart, you’re in an unusual state of being, and you must take unusual precautions to ensure you do the right thing.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Oct. 16, 2017, #1172 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

You seem to be alternating between past and future images of yourself. Both are relatively true, and both are available now — as is an even better vision. The key is to know where you stand; in the flow of time, and in the flow of your personal development. By image, I don’t just mean a vague mental concept; rather, I mean a vision for yourself that you use as a sketch plan, model or template for further development. There are two main elements to work with. One is the image you have of yourself as relates to your friends, your community and whatever you define as your public. The other relates to the most direct, intimate, one-on-one partnerships and collaborations. This whole theme is worth a book chapter, though the short version is that these two concepts of yourself need to be in harmony with one another and, in turn, in harmony with something much deeper.

Jupiter in Scorpio Horoscope for Oct. 12, 2017, #1171 | By Amy Elliott

Now that Jupiter is in your house of career, ambition and public status, you will surely have the means to manifest some of your goals in the wider world. What will that look like? How far do your plans for the future reflect the truth of who you are? This is something you need to consider. What you bring into your environment will ultimately represent the essence of you. That is to say: let your most ideal, ethical version of who you can become shape your overall aims. If you consider your best self your ally, you will likely make far greater progress.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Oct. 9, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

This week, Jupiter crosses the midheaven angle of your solar chart, entering the sign Scorpio. There it will be for a year, providing you with an expanded sense of your potential. Before you open that chapter, however, you would be wise to conduct a review of all that’s happened during the past year of your life, particularly where your professional affairs are concerned. What have you learned about the concepts ‘right’ and ‘wrong’? What have you learned about aligning your spiritual values with your work-related goals, and your desire to grow and rise up in the world? If you’re paying attention, there will be one particular point of integrity that comes into focus, as you begin the next phase of your outer development. Aligning this inner knowledge with your outer actions is your karmic goal for the next 12 months or longer.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Oct. 2, 2017, #1170 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

It can take a long time to get the details of a relationship right. It’s easier, though, when you come from a spirit of generosity, and when you don’t keep score. Everything does not have to be even-steven, and as a person who has a lot (you do), you can afford to be gracious and forgiving. You can afford to set aside your expectations and observe who a person really is, and how you feel about them. It helps to receive what is offered to you and, as a gift to someone you care about, help them feel like they are a generous and abundant person. Let this be especially true in the most local aspects of your life. Rather than thinking about what’s going on at a distance, or what might happen far in the future, focus on your immediate environment, the people who surround you, and the needs that they have.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Sept. 25, 2017, #1169 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

The one thing that could block your experience of this week’s rare and brilliant astrology is a too-serious attitude. Therefore, hang loose, and keep your sense of humor. Let go of some of your formality and adherence to protocol. You have plenty to spare, and can do with far less. Let yourself approach the world more like a child than an adult, which means allowing yourself to be impressed and amazed by things without analyzing or categorizing them. This will free your mind and open your heart to the magic that’s in the air. You may also notice the extent to which you judge yourself, and get a glimpse of how good your life can be when you suspend that habit. You don’t need to explain everything. You don’t even need to understand everything. Most of the very best things in life defy both explanation and understanding, and don’t need a theory to back them up.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for October 2017, #1168 | By Eric Francis

To be meaningful, this thing we call spirituality must have a use. It cannot merely be an abstract, academic or esoteric thing, as it so often is. Its correct use would include a sane approach to handling conflict, and the use of wisdom rather than force. This is a tall order, I know, on a planet where most people concern themselves either with survival, or greed. For you, the spiritual life is designed to manifest primarily in your relationships. While the point might be made that this applies to everyone (it does), the emphasis for Aquarius is to make sure you don’t forget, and convince yourself you’ll find enlightenment way in the back of a dusty book on Freemasonry. The relational nature of your spiritual path comes into focus this month, as planets collect in Libra. This is an invitation to see, feel and experience the purpose of your relationships, which is non-negotiable. Anytime there’s some sort of haggling going on, or competition, or scorekeeping, you can be sure that you’ve drifted from your purpose. Part of whatever ‘spiritual’ might imply involves being supportive of the people you care about and their total environment. Spiritual also implies a measure of balance, though that must be assessed over the long run rather than the immediate sense. Your role is to be helpful. Eliminate the question, “What’s in it for me?” That is from another cosmos.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Sept. 18, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

The message of your astrology for the foreseeable future is unraveling all those automatic, pre-programmed patterns that you’ve been practicing since way back when you were a fetus. At the moment, the spotlight is shining on the ways you negotiate any agreement where there are shared resources, such as money, sex or the material exchanged in an intimate relationship. You must reckon with the fact that your opinions, your actions and the style in which you express them have an influence on your mutually shared environment. And, in turn, your environment has an influence on you. Your emotions multiply in the context of your relationships. So does your karma. So you have to decide what, more or less exactly, you want. Where are you going to make your investments? What is the purpose of your shared enterprises? As the Grateful Dead used to sing, “If you plant ice, you’re gonna harvest wind.” You can also plant sunflowers, zucchini, hemp or quinoa.

Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope for Sept. 14, 2017, #1167 | By Amy Elliott

If you’ve felt any uncertainty as to what you honestly desire, this week should afford you some answers. It’s likely, however, that you have some clue. You’ve had what’s pretty much a longstanding hotline to your unconscious, and are perhaps used to exploring that link — however familiar or otherwise that might feel. That said, a particular idea coming through now might be decidedly more concrete, especially if you’re listening. You may wish to consider sharing this information with someone in order to get it out in the open, and perhaps gain even further clarity.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Sept. 11, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Let events this week nudge you forward, or perhaps lift you into flight. You have support coming from many different directions, which is excellent if you remember that you’re the pilot of your own craft. Now that you’ve established the credibility or validity of what you do, you may be discovering that these endorsements didn’t matter so much anyway. You are who you are, and that is your real success. Still, there are advantages to having a measure of popularity, especially if you recall that your most important fans are the ones closest to you. Any potential admirers ‘out there’ matter rather less than those who provide you with love, energy, ideas or coffee. Though no other astrologer would ever say this to an Aquarian, never fall for the belief that you’re boring.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Sept. 4, 2017, #1166 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Regarding a financial matter, you will need to study the exact figures before you have a sense of what’s going on. Be bold about going to the numbers, and looking at the various sub-totals and the bottom line. This is not an area with any room for guessing, and what you think might be true is likely to turn out to be different from what is actually true. You cannot be too accurate; you should get the same result whether you add the column from top to bottom or bottom to top. Once you have the data, you’ll be on much more solid ground, and you’ll feel more confident as a result. In fact, you’re likely to discover that not knowing the bottom line eats confidence like a caterpillar eats leaves. You’ll also have enough information to establish the best MO for what you want to do, which should rightfully include a budget that you stick to, more or less.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Aug. 28, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

For the next 10 days, you’ll need to be both conscious and cautious around financial matters, contracts, shared resources and tax issues. The planets are describing a situation where you need more information than you currently have. You also must be cautious of certain facts that are incorrect, and of disinformation that’s in some way designed to confuse or deceive you. You can drill in all you want, though there are certain bits of data that will only come out in their own good time. That, it would seem, is related to the final days of Mercury retrograde coupled with the Full Moon. Meanwhile, it would be wise to reserve judgment on any people and situations that are still clouded with mystery, which seem stuck or where you sense you’re not being treated fairly. By all means prepare yourself with whatever information is available, though there’s plenty more to come.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for September 2017, #1164 | By Eric Francis

There seem to be more alterations to your financial affairs than in a tailor shop during prom season. Yet you’re stitching together a coherent plan, and something with potential. What you need, though, is a more compassionate embracing view of your partnerships. You could do more with certain people, if you recognized how productive the relationships really are. You seem to have a firewall set up between your shared mission with certain people, and your ability to bring that mission to fruition. It’s almost as if you’re reluctant to consummate the marriage on the first night of the honeymoon. Sometimes hesitation is appropriate, though you would feel more confident if you really understood that your interests are not even vaguely separate from the people around you. You share purpose, you share resources, you share necessities. It’s only a flimsy Chinese wall that keeps you thinking there is some division or divergence. You’ll start to see the light when Vesta and the Sun move into your fellow air sign Libra in a few weeks. At that point, you’ll have a view from a higher altitude, though once you see the lay of the land, come back to Earth. Your services and indeed your inspiration are needed here, in a world that’s struggling for any reason to believe that good things are possible, and where people are struggling to have faith in themselves.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Aug. 21, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Monday’s now-infamous eclipse of the Sun occurs in the relationship angle of your chart. The Moon and the Sun meet up in Leo, your 7th solar house. This imparts two messages: one is wiping the slate clean. Another is an opening up to new possibilities. Yet there’s a process being described by Mercury retrograde in another important relationship house, the 8th. This is where you work out the details: the financial contract, the sexual agreements, and the secrets that you share. Before you go on, it will be necessary to resolve some old business. This doesn’t need to take a long time, but it requires your full attention. It may be about an existing relationship, though it’s more likely to address a pattern you’re becoming aware of. That awareness is your first prerequisite; next you must want to have things be different; then you must act on that desire, which mostly describes how you speak to others, and the expectations that you have.

Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope for Aug. 17, 2017, #1163 | By Amy Elliott

One way to gauge whether you benefit from a close relationship is to comprehend how it makes you feel about yourself. This includes noticing whether the other person brings your best side uppermost. That is linked to self-fulfillment, which should not really be mutually exclusive with fulfillment in love or friendship, or even business interactions. Monday’s eclipse is likely to help make that clear. Many people stick together because they fear change or seek security. If that is no longer sufficient for you, you’re likely heading in the right direction.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Aug. 14, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Next week’s eclipse in your opposite sign Leo describes a total reassessment of your relationships, and your ideas about them. Every wheel is in spin, every variable is in play; though, most of all, you get an opportunity to clear the stage of your life and create something new. There’s enough energy in your environment that you’ll see the possibilities before you engage with them. Doing so is not the full activation of destiny. You get to experiment; failure to notice this is a fallacy that has a lot of momentum right now; that is, the idea that every choice is permanent; that accepting a date to coffee is a lifetime commitment. The true state of the world is transient. Once you can dance with that, you can explore some exciting possibilities, and gauge whether and in what ways they affirm your existence and your pleasures. The world is opening up for you; greet it not with fear, but with love and respect.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Aug. 7, 2017, #1162 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Monday there’s an eclipse of the Moon in your sign. This may influence several facets of your life, though none more than your commitment to the work that you do. You are inspired to do good work because you care. You know that money is a relatively small influence for you, though you need to be mindful of cash flow. So make sure that you’re doing what you love to do, just in case you have to do a lot more of it. The other aspect of existence covered by this eclipse is your overall health and wellbeing. You simply must commit to this as a way of life. You must eat real food, drink pure water (coffee and soft drinks do not count) and get actual rest on a nightly basis. This is about longevity, and it’s also about efficiency. If you work yourself into exhaustion, your efficiency goes down; and if you’re well rested and prepared, it increases rather dramatically. You know all of this. Put it to good use.

Aquarius Full Moon Moonshine Horoscope, #1161 | by Len Wallick

If anybody knows that it’s almost never (if ever) about you, it’s you. That being said, the never-ending process of maturation and individualization also requires that you know when and to what extent you must accept responsibility. This paradoxical principle is especially true regarding individual relationships. Above all else, do not demand (or even expect) perfection from yourself. When and where you err, admit it, but only to those who need to know that you are owning what is yours. If and when you need to apologize or otherwise express remorse, do so, but only within reason. Finally, if the situation dictates that you must make amends, accept the need for it, but also acknowledge when your debt has been paid. It’s not about you. Yet, you have a place and a purpose that nobody else could possibly fill. Appreciate that, and you will have laid the groundwork for what could be your best relationships ever.

Monday Morning Horoscope for July 31, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Mars and the Sun are moving through your opposite sign Leo. If your sign is Aquarius, or if that’s your rising sign or your Moon sign, that translates to intense: fast activity, unexpected developments, and people showing up in your life, potentially with an aggressive feeling. Under these conditions, there’s just one thing you must do: take care of yourself. Remove any unnecessary activity from your schedule, with an actual understanding of the concept of “necessary.” That means a radical form of prioritizing, with no guilt whatsoever about decisions you make. You need to take care of providing for yourself all the most basic nutrients, which includes recreational time and downtime. However, you don’t need mindless diversion or entertainment, or anything even vaguely reckless. One of the most significant projects of your life right now is purging old and useless tendencies that have not served you, and replacing them with what supports your best interests.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for August 2017, #1160 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

It’s time to break the tension of your relationships. To this end, letting go of expectations will be helpful; it’s the source of much stress, and of difficulty getting close to others. Another source involves how you may perceive yourself as a ‘public person’ and a somewhat opposite experience of yourself as a private person. You seem much more rigid than you actually are, though it’s unclear why you don’t take a more relaxed attitude toward the world, and give yourself and everyone else space to be themselves. Then there’s the matter of commitment. Do you really think you can choose what you commit to and what you don’t? Or have you observed that there’s a larger pattern involved, and that your involvements select you just as much as you select them? The total solar eclipse of Aug. 21 is an invitation to be absolutely true to your relationships. It’s bidding you to have the utmost respect for the karma that you share with others. What you want to do is work that karma out and move on to better things, rather than get more deeply mired in it. Therefore, say what you need to say to people. Listen to what they say to you. Honor the bonds you share with them, and honor your need to be independent as well. Both are true at once and are equally valid.

Monday Morning Horoscope for July 24, 2017, #1159 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

There are some song lyrics I love, which come out of the Grateful Dead camp: “Stake my future on a hell of a past / looks like tomorrow is comin’ on fast.” That about sums up your life at the moment, and this can be a beautiful thing. Change is upon you, and it’s likely to enter your experience through other people. Therefore, you must constantly distinguish between what they want and what you want. It will be too easy to get vacuumed into the desires of others without much thought on your part, and once that happens, it’ll be difficult to get out of those situations. Therefore, know your own desires, and make sure they’re a match for any circumstances you find yourself in. Step back or step forward according to what’s appropriate, making a conscious choice one way or the other.

Monday Morning Horoscope for July 17, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Toss any notion that money is related to the meaning of life, or somehow related to success. The latter might be true in some sense, but not the kind of success you are seeking as a humanitarian-leaning Aquarian. Money is a tool, a resource and in some ways a reward. There are many more meaningful factors that will determine whether and how you find your way in the world, the most significant of which is self-respect. Though this is in short supply in the world, it’s abundantly available for you. You will know you’re there based on how you feel. The positive emotions associated with respecting yourself come from below, and from within. It’s not a cerebral thing. As planets enter your relationship sign Leo, love and admiration will enter your life — though only if you feel worthy.

Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope for July 13, 2017, #1158 | By Amy Elliott

When it comes to brightening up your daily life, the first thing you need is to know where or when you’re feeling any sense of dullness. That will help you identify what might need to be freshened up. Once you’ve established that, a useful task over the next week could be listening to those you trust. By no means give up your spot in the driver’s seat; however, people who love you may have invaluable insights to offer. If you get a jolt of excitement, that might just be a sign.

Monday Morning Horoscope for July 10, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

You must take care of yourself this week. That has several meanings, the most significant of which is balancing work, rest and other modes of self-care. It also means staying out of unnecessary conflicts, whether emotional or at work (or potentially both). Said simply, you must manage your energy — no matter how much you may think you have, or how much you’ve gotten away with abusing your body in the past. Those days are over. The pressure and the stakes are too high; you’re expected to perform like a professional athlete, which always involves a hybrid of mental and physical conditioning. The thing to start with is food. Note all the ways you’ve been slacking or skimping; get yourself to the nearest farmer’s market. Then, move on to sleep. Keep your devices out of your bedroom; having them near you is like sleeping with a bright invisible light on. Then comes work. Choose your priorities, and invest your energy well.

Monday Morning Horoscope for July 3, 2017, #1157 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Beware the tyranny within. To do that, you must first see it for what it is, then stay one step ahead of your inner persecutor. The reason this takes guts is because you would need to take responsibility for how you feel. That would include understanding how you got to feel that way, which in turn will require you to actually understand what people did to you when you were younger. The inner persecutor is an installed device. One is not born with it. God or nature did not create it, like your eyes, heart or hands. To liberate yourself requires making the fine distinction between blame and responsibility. Blame is paralyzing; responsibility is the ability to respond. And this you have, if you maintain your inner awareness. That’s the thing. That’s the real struggle of our world right now: the fear to look within. You must be courageous.

Monday Morning Horoscope for June 26, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Keep a grip on your competitive nature. It’s been decades (four, to be exact) since that New Games book came out, the one that taught us all how to play with a parachute at summer camp. You know, the kinds of games without a winner or loser, where the pleasure is getting everyone cooperating toward the same goal. We’re all pretty brainwashed that all activity has to be competitive, and that all games have to be zero sum games: that is, winner take all. You may find that the events of the week, particularly at work, give you the perfect opportunity to foster collaboration. You might say that it’s more fun and more productive, and you can also point out the various ways that competition is simply not working to get the desired result. Step one of the game: everyone agrees on what that will be.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for July 2017, #1156 | By Eric Francis

This summer will have a ‘before and after’ quality to it: your life before, and your life after. It’s time to focus on some relationship issues, which really means how you think about the people in your life. This won’t all happen at once; there’s a gradual phase-in of both the review process and the necessity to make important decisions that, you may discover, were long overdue. The thing you want to be mindful of is aggression in any form, no matter where it’s coming from: from you, from someone close to you, or from your environment generally. Violence can include pushing your agenda on others. You will be called upon to make some adjustments: in particular, to go with the flow of what others want and need. This may feel submissive, though actually, by helping others, you’re the one who is learning, and you’ll receive some deep nutrients through the experience of shared purpose. Aquarius is a social sign, and we live in distinctly anti-social times. You of all people face a profound necessity to actually participate with the world in a meaningful way, which in part means experiencing the meaning of others as something directly relevant to you. There can be no pretending here. There is no ‘using relationships’ for some other purpose. Everything must stand on its own virtue, its own necessity and its own relevance. Including you.

Monday Morning Horoscope for June 19, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

The past week put you through a kind of spiritual test, summoning your discipline and compelling you to fully embrace your responsibilities. The coming season will call upon you to be consistently productive, rather than moving in your usual cycles of devotion. Wake up every day and return to your central purpose. You have a job to do, and you’re the one who’s chosen your mission. Therefore, don’t worry about success. Don’t worry about your reputation. Most of all, don’t worry about your fears. Rather, step up to the challenges of life and do your very best work every single day. Resolve to do even better each and every morning. There are no laurels to rest on. Follow the example of those who do what they do for its own sake and for no other reason.

Weekly Horoscope for June 15, 2017 #1155 | By Amy Elliott

Just at present you have an opportunity to work on your self-esteem, to a point at which you’ve rarely felt more confident. There’s been a seismic shift in the landscape of your mind, and you appear to feel more open as a result. It might help you to build up your social network (the in-person kind), and to experiment with letting people in. If that feels like going a bit wild, so much the better: you could do with stepping out of your comfort zone, and in all probability will find it easier than you might think.

Monday Morning Horoscope for June 12, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Lately, you’ve been under challenging, inspiring influences. Yet you’re in one of those phases where you discover that life is worth whatever struggle you’re thrown. This week, however, the planets align in such a way that describes an easing of your burdens. Your mind is on fire at the same time your discipline is at a peak, so you can put your excellent ideas to good use. If you’re developing a business, working on your career, or involved in an artistic endeavor, you will have good traction. Just make sure you emphasize your highest priorities. The only risk is getting distracted or sidetracked by things that don’t matter. Stick to what you know, from experience, is important, and focus on bringing already-evolved projects to completion. Once you do that, there will be plenty of time to experiment.

Monday Morning Horoscope for June 5, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Notice the many changes in the human environment that take place throughout the week. Suspend your expectations, your judgments and your plans for a moment, and observe, with your feelings, the fact that people are opening up. You run the risk of lingering in your past views of the world. Rather than speculating, become a keen observer of what people say, do, think and feel. At the same time, pay attention to what you say, do, think and feel. Right now your life mission and livelihood depend on your relationship to the public, potentially a rather broad-based and diverse one. You are poised to be a leader, which means being resonant and responsive to what’s happening around you. Through that process, you’ll find that you’re the most effective and the most successful in this unusual and relevant thing that you’re creating.

Short Monthly Horoscope for June 2017, #1154 | By Eric Francis

Your workspace is your healing space. Your work keeps you healthy, and this is a good time to remember that. For most people, this is far from the truth; what they consider employment is for the most part a responsibility they want to get over with as soon as possible, and be on their way. You would laugh at this, but you’re too polite. Besides, you have some friendly people around you who are just as determined to do the job well, and for its own sake. The money will flow from there.

Monday Morning Horoscope for May 29, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Any truly creative process must in some way challenge prevailing public opinion. Otherwise, what’s so creative about it? Seen on an individual level, when you come up with an idea — something happening a lot lately — you must, in that process, challenge something within yourself. Take up that approach boldly. Notice where your newer ideas seem to conflict with your older ones; then notice the way that you challenge the dominant view of the people around you. There’s only so much you’re capable of conforming to the views of others, though if you’re going to break consensus, it helps to do so in an intelligent and thoughtful way. What you may need is time in the privacy of your own room, studio or mind, or writing in a cafĂ© you don’t usually frequent, where you can say, think and feel anything you want — without regard for the responses that others might have.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for June 2017, #1153 | By Eric Francis

You might take this month and define your healing goals. Take these on two levels: the ones about repairing or unraveling what’s not going well, and determining what you need for an enhanced experience of wellbeing. Let’s consider part one, the repair side of the question. This might involve fulfilling a commitment to go to therapy, to reassess any medications you’re taking, and getting a handle on any physical issues that you want to address. They might include better diet, losing weight or more exercise. They might include addressing any persistent health matters that have been a distraction. Start with what’s easy and obvious, and focus on experiencing the benefits of commitment to the project. Don’t take it all on at once; you’re less likely to succeed. On the other side is what you need to live in a way that’s more compatible with who you are. One crucial thing is getting your work environment right. You spend a lot of your time there, and it has a profound influence on your state of mind. Think of your workspace as both home and healing space, where you must not only be productive, but supported in doing so. Take control of your environment. Remove what does not belong there, and add what you need (such as a reliable source of good food at work, and a place to rest).

Monday Morning Horoscope for May 22, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

You’ve entered a phase of your life where, with each useless, negative or in-the-way thing you remove, you will make room for some helpful and productive thing to enter. This involves physical objects, people, groups you belong to, and ideas you have about yourself. It’s a basic principle of the Asian art of feng shui: de-clutter, open up space, and put things you use regularly right where you can reach them. As the spring and summer progress, this process will take up residence in your relationships. The key concept is balance: between self and other, and between seemingly different interests. One thing you’re likely to discover is that as you let go of persistent mental patterns, even ones you’ve experienced since childhood, you make room for a more self-affirming experience of your relationships. As you well know, it’s about time.

Weekly Horoscope for May 18, 2017 #1152 | By Amy Elliott

Though your sign is not usually known for its introspective tendencies, you’re just beginning a process in which you’re likely to be looking within much more for insights, and getting to know and love yourself better as a result. At present, you may be feeling the first impulses toward that. Pay close attention to your emotions, and try to understand where they might be leading. Let things flow naturally; don’t rush yourself. This phase of your life needs to be gentle and steady.

Monday Morning Horoscope for May 15, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Early in the week — Sunday through Tuesday — monitor your anxiety level closely, rather than trying to stuff or ignore it. Remember that anxiety is not a sign that something is actually wrong. It’s often connected to a particular person or subject, but that rarely bears out in reality. Therefore, take it easy on yourself, and see if you can figure out what’s really up. A few things will help: among them, getting enough rest; getting your body in or near water, whether a bathtub, a lake or an ocean; and taking care of the needs that you might think should be provided by a partner. Also, you can help yourself substantially by prioritizing your most important projects and aspirations and focusing your energy there. You will reap what you sow. If you foster love and cooperation, you will get that, and as the Grateful Dead used to say, if you plant ice, you’re gonna harvest wind.

Scorpio Full Moon Moonshine Horoscope, #1151 | By Len Wallick

Take note of any tight muscles in your body. Then, look around for metaphorically tight situations in your life. Finally, consider a simple experiment. Among all those symbolically tight spots in your life, pick the simplest and easiest to deal with — and resolve it for good. After doing so, pay attention to what happens inside your skin. Based on what’s recently been going on in the skies, it would appear distinctly possible that you are in physical sympathy with at least some of your experience. If you can find at least some correlation between physical symptoms and external events, you will open the door to an alternative means of relief with some real chance of success. In addition, if you do in fact find that your body effectively ‘maps’ at least some of the world, you will have gone a long way towards being able to feel your way through current events. And you’ll do so without having to rely so much on (or be confused by) a disembodied electronic media.

Monday Morning Horoscope for May 8, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

You seem to be driven by either a creative project or a new love interest. Despite your passion, you might want to back off and burn your fuel a little more slowly and efficiently. That means going easy on spending, relying on the old-fashioned virtues of using what you have, eating some meals at home, and doing the more fulfilling kinds of recreation rather than what in today’s world passes for entertainment. An artistic project could be of high interest, and it would be the perfect space to explore a friendship or to spend time with kids. If you’re involved in any kind of professional (or serious amateur) creative endeavor, this will be a fulfilling week, rich with ideas and surprising new ways of looking at the world. Unplug your television and throw your favorite shawl over the thing.

Short Monthly Horoscope for May 2017, #1150 | By Eric Francis

You’re going through a kind of initiation: the emergence from one distinct phase of your life to another, in the most positive sense. Initiation is a concept that’s all but missing from Western culture. Think of it as a graduation: emerging to a higher level of growth and challenge. Now you must be your own master: of ethics, of keeping the promises you make, and of focusing on the higher purpose of your life. Higher purpose means knowing why you’re doing something rather than just doing it. Opening up that topic might seem overwhelming, but it’s time to ask real questions, so you get real answers.

Monday Morning Horoscope for May 1, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

You can be a lot brassier in your thinking process. Most of what passes for thought barely sheds enough light to cast a shadow, though your mind is boldly illuminated right now. You can see through the seeming complexity of things, into their essence. That doesn’t mean “seeing things simply” but more accurately, observing the affairs of the world in a way that emphasizes elegance and the interconnectedness of what seems to be separate. One trick to doing this is, when everyone else is fixated on the figure dancing before them, look off to the sides and into the background and study the environment. When everyone is staring at the stage, turn around and look at the audience. Most situations, problems and puzzles can be solved much more easily by making this kind of move, particularly since so few people have even heard of it, much less bother with it.

Weekly Horoscope for April 27, 2017, #1149 | By Amy Elliott

Remember that duty and pleasure need not conflict. Life may feel a little topsy-turvy just now, but that will pass. If you’re getting bored with your present routines, you can always experiment with switching them up. It’s important, however, that you avoid situations in which having fun feels like yet another task. Draw on the support of friends if you need to. Those who care about you most are aware of your devotion to your cause. That’s equally true of the people you are serving. Don’t be ashamed to ask for help, or to step back and breathe every so often.

Monday Morning Horoscope for April 24, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

One great benefit of being an Aquarian is your ability to apply your mind to solving a puzzle, problem or other challenge. Yet how you define the issue determines how you approach it and, therefore, whether you solve it. I suggest you put more energy into defining the problem than you put into coming up with the remedy. Once you know what you’re dealing with, what to do will be plainly obvious. If you act before you correctly define the problem, you could literally spend days running in circles before you figure out you were doing just that. Therefore, slow down the whole process, and keep as wide a perspective as possible. And remember, the key to being a genius is knowing when you don’t know.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscopes for May 2017, #1148 | By Eric Francis

Your mind is on fire these days, and you might want to cool it off by a few degrees. Just a little air conditioning for the high-tech equipment that is your inner creative shop. Here’s the thing to remember: Your productivity and creativity are not actually mental. Or, rather, you would be more productive and creative if you diverted some of your energy into emotional intelligence. This has a distinction: it’s about listening and feeling rather than brainstorming. It’s a holistic and integrated approach to thought. It’s slower, it’s deeper and it works better. The Sun moving through Taurus is summoning you to do this: to get in contact with the inner ground of your own being and approach life from that perspective. It’s difficult to do while you’re plugged into a computer, phone or TV. You will think different thoughts and have different ideas when you’re sitting in the woods or even a park, or when you have a musical instrument or drawing pencils in your hand. If you’re trying to figure something out, put down the screen or the mouse, and try sketching or sculpting. You’re not a superficial person but under the current astrology, you run the risk of losing access to your deepest levels of talent and sensitivity — and you have just as much potential to cultivate a whole new kind of depth and sensitivity.

Monday Morning Horoscope for April 17, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

You may feel as if you’re hiding something from yourself or from others. That’s unusual because lately you’ve been so transparent, erring on the side of making your personal truth known. Yet what, specifically, you might be hiding is fear. Many people are a lot more worried than they’re letting on, such as about the things it’s not polite to mention over drinks and hors d’oeuvres. However, your friends and acquaintances count on you to be a little weird in ways they’re afraid to be. What else is an Aquarian for? If you bring up the subject — any subject that truly concerns you, and which you might not normally casually mention — you might find that you have an interested audience, and people interested in an honest discussion. When that happens, you may find yourself feeling like you’re living on a different planet — a much better one.

Weekly Horoscope for April 13, 2017 #1147 | By Amy Elliott

Changes in your immediate environment may be pushing you to adapt quickly. To all appearances you’re managing well, and your success is judiciously bolstering your self-belief. What you’re learning will likely be useful for the future: you’re acquiring some skills for life. Only be sure to keep in mind the cause for which you set out in the beginning. Eventually you should once again be free to rededicate yourself to your usual daily work, supported by the more rounded perspective you’re gaining now. For the moment, keep your eyes peeled and your ears pricked.

Monday Morning Horoscope for April 10, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Don’t always assume you’re right. Though this may be annoying, you’ll appreciate the exercise because you’ll come closer to reality. It always helps you to be flexible. Structure and form, you have. An organized system of logic, you’re aware of and you can use when you need to. Change is something you expect but then often resist, which is why being open-minded is so vital to your happiness and your wellbeing. The overarching theme of your charts at the moment is healing any residual issues (or an overt crisis) of self-esteem. You may never feel that you measure up. But the question, if you ask it, might be: who is doing the measuring? And what is the metric? Both logic and intuition would likely tell you that comparison is irrelevant, though you cannot ‘not compare’; you can only live organically in your truth. Practice self-acceptance and you may make the pleasant discovery that it’s easier to grow and change from there.

Short Monthly Horoscope for April 2017, #1146 | By Eric Francis

Kindness is the highest human virtue. You know this, whereas others are more likely to forget. Therefore, remind them with your actions — particularly what you do in the public realm. The world in its current state has guided you closer to your core humanitarian values. More than ever, it’s obvious that your purpose on Earth is to do what you can to make things better here. This, in turn, makes your own life better. You can afford to be bold and generous no matter what self-serving ideas others may think of as virtuous. Integrity is your birthright.

Monday Morning Horoscope for April 3, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

This is a good time to check in with some of your relatives — your parents and grandparents in particular, if they’re available. If they’re in the realm of departed ancestors, you can still tune in, and let them know you’re doing well, and ask them what suggestions they have for you. Either way, you want to cast these people as supportive. I know this can be tricky, as many people feel undermined by their families or, at best, hamstrung. Yet the moment you are honest about wanting your independence, you can make that fact known. You don’t need permission and you don’t need direct cooperation. You need to state, to whom it may concern, that you’re an independent person and that you’re ready to go your own way. Attachment to the past and embracing the present and the future don’t exactly work well together. Yet you don’t owe them anything, particularly your freedom.

Aries New Moon Moonshine Horoscope, #1145 | By Len Wallick

Nearly four centuries ago, John Donne famously averred that no person is an island. In our modern world Donne’s best-known assertion still holds water, but the nature of the container has radically changed. It’s easier to become isolated now. It’s also more difficult to be continuously visible. That being said, one thing has not changed. It remains important for any given human and all of humanity to belong. Having a way to both contribute constructively within and receive support from a distinguishable community is as essential as it has ever been. More than most people, you know what it takes for a community to be sustainable and truly functional in our era. It seems you both crave, and want to offer, greater meaning. Now would be a good time to seek or create a collective endeavor where that knowledge would come in handy for everybody involved.

Monday Morning Horoscope for March 27, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

There’s such a thing as faith. Before I try to define it, let’s agree that it has nothing to do with hope. It has nothing to do with belief. It’s not about proof, or assurance in any form. It’s not about being cocky or self-assured. Faith is a state of mind where you connect to your actual potential, with a calm, subtle certainty. As such, it transcends doubt. Indeed, it’s a state where doubt is reduced to a meek whisper, if it exists at all. And from there, you proceed with doing what you know you need to do, or genuinely want to do. Being clear in your priorities helps a lot. That’s not easy in this world of so many distractions and so many options, most of which are false roads. You can, therefore, start by asking yourself what genuinely matters the most to you, and letting that one thing be your guide.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for April 2017, #1144 | By Eric Francis

Astrology teaches us something obvious that I’ve never seen in a self-help book or learned in therapy training: money and self-esteem are intimately related. We see this through the 2nd house in astrology, which classically is about cash on hand and available resources, and in psychological astrology is about your relationship to yourself. In your solar chart this is Pisces, which at the moment is populated by an interesting assortment of planets (most of them new discoveries since the 1970s). Now Venus is about to enter Pisces, and will conclude its retrograde journey mid-month with a conjunction to Chiron. This is about deciphering all the ways you hold back love and approval from yourself. Then you can learn a lot by answering those judgments in sane and humane ways. Nobody on our particular planet goes through life without some struggle over the right to exist. Aquarians in particular can grapple with a poignant sense of not fitting in. Yet as you figure out that this whole drama is moderated by your own state of self-acceptance, you will settle down and, in a sense, claim yourself. That means taking ownership of all your personal resources and talents; and that, in turn, is good for business and career. What you might offer to others must be yours to share, and that’s the essence of full ‘belonging’ in every sense of the word.

Monday Morning Horoscope for March 20, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

When you’re overwhelmed with data, there’s actually something you can do. Rather than trying to analyze all of it, experiment with pattern recognition. This is a low-energy approach to analysis, which mostly involves observation. Rather than putting your mind into four-wheel drive, relax and watch the events, ideas, information and people go by. Look at the statistics, if you have some, and notice the most basic trends: what’s growing, what’s shrinking, and where the energy is tending to flow. You might think of this as metadata, which reveals far more than the government wants you to know. From this analysis, you’ll be able to spot some issues you can respond to without much work. The thing not to do is “go by your gut.” You need actual grist for the mill. You need good data going in, so you get useful results on the other end.

Weekly Horoscope for March 16, 2017, #1143 | By Amy Elliott

There is something neat and elegant in the ancient doctrine known as the “music of the spheres” — the idea that the planets in their dance create mutual harmonies. Your chart now is fairly ringing with its own melody. This may well be an invitation to cultivate your musical or other creative gifts, or perhaps to stimulate your mind through hearing a well-written composition. Either way, it will likely do you good to develop and use a skill that holds your interest. One other thing: listen to constructive criticism by all means; yet naysayers you can safely ignore.

Monday Morning Horoscope for March 13, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

It’s not what you have, it’s what you do with it. This works for many things, but especially your financial resources. You must use those resources strategically. That’s to say, prioritize. Know what to pay first; purchase what you need before you purchase what you want; and as Peter Gabriel said, you have to know your plastic from your cash. Your solar chart reveals a high likelihood that, if you use your mind and your full-spectrum intelligence, you can not only solve some problems related to money, you can begin a new positive cycle and begin to rebuild your wealth. Yet you must allow no rosy-colored thinking to get in your way. Don’t allow yourself the supposed luxury of hopes and wishes. Be real, be realistic and focus on what is important. Yes, you’ve made some mistakes in the past. You don’t have to make them again; you can in fact learn from history, and learn well.

Moonshine Horoscope for Virgo Full Moon, #1142 | By Len Wallick

You might well very well be identifying with the mythological Heracles (or Hercules, as he was later called) right now. Your labors as of late will not be wasted if you can also bring yourself to be aware of that ancient and erstwhile hero’s most prominent flaws. Heracles was, first of all, often prone to shoot first and ask questions later. If you can but bring yourself to simply ask questions of others first, it’s very possible that their answers will make reactive extremes on your part unnecessary. Another thing Heracles was known for was his large appetite. Here again, making some inquiries (this time of yourself) could serve to head off some possibly unfortunate consequences. Before you eat, drink or otherwise indulge to heroic extents, simply ask yourself if you really need to.

Monday Morning Horoscope for March 6, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Both the ancient and modern planets associated with your sign are in a rare state. Saturn, the ancient ruler, is conjunct the Galactic Core, which is subjecting you to an ongoing awakening that may leave you wondering whether it’s really happening. The Galactic Core is famous for brilliant revelations that later seem dubious, or which are forgotten. What you’re figuring out, though, is not as strange as it may seem, and it’s certainly worth remembering. As for the modern ruling planet, Uranus, this too is in a rare state: it’s conjunct Eris in Aries. This is a blend of the brilliant revelation, the shocking awakening and a genius invention of some kind. That invention is not a thing, it’s your life — and the recognition that your life is guided by your thoughts and your perceptions (which come from your thoughts). All in all, this is a moment of awakening like none other. It’s time to get up, make a fresh pot of coffee, and meet the dawn of a new day.

Short Monthly Horoscope for March 2017, #1141 | By Eric Francis

You present a serious, competent image to the world. People look at you and assume you’re intelligent. Then they hear what you have to say, and their hunch is confirmed. Therefore, you don’t need to impress anyone. And you have a pass to suggest things that might be a little offbeat — a little unusual or inventive — and be trusted. This trust is precious. Do your part to maintain it. Meet your commitments on time or a little early. The more you work within the accepted rules of society, the more creative and daring you can be.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Feb. 27, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

You must be careful what you say and what you write. This is a great week to set everything on a one-hour delay, or an overnight delay. It will be easy — very easy — to say things that you regret, particularly if you are angry. Deal with any anger first, and then figure out what to say, and to whom. Your words have the power of a weapon right now, and even in the coolest and calmest state of mind, you want to use that delicately and judiciously. A good policy is minimal force; subtle persuasion is preferable to the heavy-handed kind. What I suggest you do is look for the most efficient, effort-free way to make your point. Think like a pool player rather than a football player. There’s no need for a Hail Mary or to tackle anyone. Look for the angle that will sink the ball, nice and easy. Then aim carefully and measure your shot.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for March 2017, #1140 | By Eric Francis

Most humans resist learning as if their lives depended on doing so. You must embrace learning as if your life depends on doing so. This is because the opportunities you have in this very moment are unlike any other, by which I mean once-in-a-lifetime potential for gaining knowledge that feeds your spiritual development. As a prerequisite of this, you must cultivate your flexibility. Mostly I mean mental flexibility (though physical flexibility is equally important), and learning how to stretch your mind so that you can encompass new ideas. You might begin with how little you know, rather than the usual Aquarian approach of how much you know. When you acquire real knowledge, it changes you. You become a different person as you adapt to what you’ve learned, and change your life to accommodate what you previously did not know. This is no small feat, particularly for contemporary people, who already think they’re the smartest people who ever walked the planet. Bring your humility to this equation. Bring your willingness to be shown what is true. Fritz Perls, the father of Gestalt therapy, once said that learning is the discovery that something is possible. If you take that as your guiding principle this month and this year, you will make many such discoveries: about yourself, about existence and about the place where the two meet.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Feb. 20, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Where financial matters are concerned, you must use your intuition, and then check your facts before you act on it. Or, you may compile all the facts you need, apply logic, and then finally check against your intuition. Neither intuition nor facts are sufficient on their own; using both and crosschecking one against the other is the way to cultivate the best information. You tend to over-emphasize intuition despite your passion for the mental sphere. I suggest you place the emphasis back on logic and fact-checking and really hang in with that, especially where money is at stake.

Planet Waves Horoscope for Feb. 16, 2017 #1139 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Often you make the whole experience of your sexuality mental rather than emotional and physical. There are a number of ways this is illustrated in your chart. Try this on: the two houses in your chart that have the most influence over your sexuality are ruled by Mercury. Mercury is the planet of ideas, of talking, of gadgets and, best of all, “the mind of the senses, the consciousness of creatures.” Whatever else we might say about you, you need sex to be a mental phenomenon. That’s good, because everything that happens anywhere happens in your brain. This goes for everyone; however, with house 5 covered by Gemini and house 8 covered by Virgo, your sexuality needs a correspondingly mental and psychological component. You are a perfect fit for erotic writing, sex by Skype, sex by email and, heck, sex by Twitter. You probably discovered phone sex shortly after the invention of the telephone (Mr. Watson! Come quickly!). So, lace your sexuality with hot conversation. Tell it like it is. Fulfill your desire to hear all the details from anyone who will reveal them. Virgo on the 8th is all about the details. It’s also prone to a bit of being hyper-picky and to overemphasizing hygiene. Which leads to Pisces. An important root of sexuality is held in the 2nd house, which covers masturbation. My erotic theory begins with the idea that all sex is based in one’s sexual relationship with oneself. Here, you have the potential for a rich fantasy life, which is good for self-sex. The clit is not really the clit; it’s the brain. With Neptune in this house now, there’s really no limit to what you can imagine.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Feb. 13, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Take advantage of the Sun’s last few days in your birth sign. You’re likely to make a valuable connection today that will help you make up for lost time. Make sure you do something very un-21st-century and treat the people you meet with respect, particularly older folks. If you’re too lost in your own head, you could easily overlook the presence of someone who knows quite a bit and would be willing to help you, if only you were to pause and have a real conversation. You cannot just trust to luck, pluck and derring-do. You need to develop human connections and cultivate a relationship where you are the learner and someone else is the teacher. Mercury is currently in your sign, and this is cautioning you to know when you don’t know. The first thing to do, therefore, is stop assuming you know; and instead, open your mind to facts and opinions that you need.

Planet Waves Horoscope for Feb. 9, 2017 #1138 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Belief is not only less threatening than reality, it seems more solid, and this has led to our world of people living in bubbles, believing anything they click on — as long as it appeals to them. Now Saturn is about to encounter the Galactic Core. You might say that all of this worldly jetsam and flotsam will be neatly cooked off by this long contact with the Galactic Core. This is religion meeting the religious experience. It is the holy roller actually encountering the Holy Spirit. It’s the philosopher having an experience of unspeakable truth. Whether this manifests for you in a dramatic way is an open question; that it will manifest in some way is a given. This represents a personal change for you; it represents a change in society to some degree (we shall see to some extent); and because this is in a public house in your chart, it represents a reorientation on your relationship to your community. More than anything, though, this event describes a transformation for you personally, and the context in which you relate to the world. Both are changing at the same time. The upshot of this transit is that you know that it’s up to you above all else to have faith in humanity. This is not about idealism or some form of light spirituality. It’s about the actual work of evolutionary growth. It will not be all sweetness and starlight; to do the right thing, and to accomplish what you need to accomplish, you may encounter some of the more shadowy sides of human nature. You will be able to withstand this if you maintain your integrity at all times, and come back to it as soon as you notice you’ve digressed.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Feb. 6, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

Over the next few days, the Sun in your sign will make a series of productive and useful aspects to important planets, among them Saturn, Jupiter and the Uranus-Eris conjunction. That means you get to raise your profile and, in a sense, play in a league much higher than you’re usually accustomed to. If you want to take advantage of this opportunity, conduct yourself appropriately: dress properly for every occasion. Treat authority figures with respect, without kissing ass. And most of all, make sure you know what you’re talking about before you open your mouth to speak. That means being wholly conscious of the limits of your knowledge (which is not exactly the specialty of those born under your birth sign). Also, you’ll soon become privy to inside information, which you must treat with the utmost confidence.

Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope for Feb. 2, 2017 #1137 | By Len Wallick

No matter how old you are, every day is in fact new. You are among the few who can authentically understand how today actually is the first day of the rest of your life. Therefore, it does not really matter whether or not you have attained that understanding before this moment. What matters is that you begin now to see how can get yourself to that point. To start off on the right foot, you must no longer buy into the stories other people tell themselves (and others) about you. To reach your potential by becoming a real and present master of time’s mysteries, you must write (and tell) your own never-ending story. It needs to be a story that defines you without confining you. You must also accept that some people may never grasp what you are saying any more than they can comprehend that neither yesterday nor tomorrow are in any way real.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Jan. 30, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

You seem to have passed a psychic kidney stone. By that I mean that your ‘unconscious’ mind, the one that blazes to life when you dream, has been working out a puzzle or a problem. This may have been irritating you in ways that you have not put words to yet. They will come gradually, as you make the connections. What you’re feeling is likely to speak in subtle sensation before you’re able to translate it into words. If you want to get the meaning or the lesson of what you’re processing, tune into those feelings. Yet as with a dream, you need to honor the internal logic of what you’re feeling, which may have nothing to do with your seemingly waking life. And what is more interesting, this whole experience may be about working out the karma of a grandparent or ancestor. In any event, some part of you wants to crack open and let your juices flow out. Bring your full emotions and your voice to the occasion.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for February 2017 #1136 | By Eric Francis

Take the time to put your feelings into words, and share them. Size is not everything, though I suggest this be longer than a tweet. Reach into some of the unusual depths that you’ve been feeling, and that may be daunting. It is, however, the expression and sharing that will help you validate your experiences, and keep your exploration going. If you keep silent, you won’t hear yourself as clearly. If you don’t write down your thoughts, you’re less likely to remember what ground you’re covering. It’s not just your arrival to a new place that counts (and such is inevitable). Rather, it’s how you got there that matters. Remember that this is a spiritual journey, and its most interesting places are symbols and ideas — and these are easy to forget. Treat each event or episode in your life as an initiation, which teaches you something, changes you slightly and significantly, and leads you to another place. As you do this, you’re closing gaps and spaces inside yourself, rather than trying to fill them up with something less fulfilling. You’re healing cracks in your psyche and openings in your emotional body. Your overall direction of travel is toward being a more solid, dependable and grounded person. And this is all preparation for something else, for experiences vastly different from what you’ve ever had before. Therefore, make friends with the unfamiliar.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Jan. 23, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

You know what your priorities are. Most people do. You have the strength and independence of spirit to act on what’s important to you, without making a big drama about it. The potential point of conflict is what you must give up to gain something that you want. You might ask yourself if this is really a sacrifice, or whether, in the alternate, you would be shorn of something you really don’t want. This, too, is a matter of your priorities, which have changed in recent years. You can make today’s decisions based on what was important in the past, or what is important today. Getting clear about this can represent a genuine moment of clarity. Why is it worth being alive, today? What values have remained consistent through your entire life? Just recognizing this will be a revelation.

Short Monthly Horoscope for February 2017 #1135 | By Eric Francis

Know when you don’t know. Rather than assume, or skip over the missing information, take the time to find out. Intelligence is not based on how smart you are; it’s based on seeking understanding, making connections and practicing your devotion to truth. This is also known as keeping your mind open. It’s the opposite of doubt and skepticism; affirm that anything can be known or discovered, and that you have the intelligence and persistence to find out. Above all, read carefully, and listen even more carefully. Even rumors may give you a clue you can follow up on.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Jan. 16, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

One thing you don’t need to worry about is your public image. Sure, it’s almost always useless to concern yourself with what people think (especially since they so rarely do). However, at the moment, you’re perceived as something of an exemplar: one committed to doing the right thing, for the right reasons. If you have the feeling that your life would be easier if you didn’t have to do this, you are correct; and that’s a good sign. Keep taking the high road. Do the right thing instead of the popular thing. Maintain your policy of being friends with those who are unpopular or who are getting a raw deal. Your example of living as one who is true to your own values counts for more than you know. Carry on. Don’t worry about whether you’re making an impact. You are, where it counts the most — in the lives of individuals who respect you.

Moonshine Horoscope for Cancer Full Moon #1134 | By Len Wallick

Few are those who achieve only one meaningful thing in their life. Indeed, it is almost inevitable that you and nearly anybody else will accomplish a great deal of good before all is said and done. At any given moment, however, it’s often difficult to see more than just immediate objectives. Such a distortion of perspective, brought on by the focus necessary to get anything done, can understandably make you feel unequal to your aspirations. For that reason alone you would be well advised to separate yourself from your endeavors periodically, and bear compassionate witness while others strive to achieve. For some that might mean being a sports fan. For you, it could mean something entirely different, like simply watching a toddler learn how to walk. Regardless of who provides you with a break from watching yourself, you will probably note that each achievement, no matter how large or small, is but one inspirational step. Let it inspire you to demonstrate yet another step to someone else, to bestow a greater meaning on us all.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Jan. 9, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

You’re moving a whole lot of karma. It’s as if something old and stuck is giving way, cracking apart and leaving you free to think and stretch out. This process is going to go on for a while. The theme of the next four seasons is about you going through a spiritual transformation where you burn off the residue of the past. You will emerge as a clearer, more open person, with greater access to your talents. You seem intent on wanting to make an impact on the world. The process you’re going through is deeply personal; and, at the same time, there’s a connection to your community. It’s as if you must go through a certain kind of change first, in a rather open and transparent way; and this takes some people along with you. Rather than worry about your impact, focus on the sincerity of your personal transformation, and keep others involved in the process. That is indeed impact.

Short Monthly Horoscope for January 2017, #1133 | By Eric Francis

There’s only so much you want to be influenced by the opinions of others, particularly where a business or creative project is involved. Yet there’s only so much you want to filter out. It’s the oddball, unusual people who will give you the best information and provide the keenest insights — those whose opinions you might ordinarily dismiss. As the old saying goes, God watches over drunks, fools and little children, and those are the people to listen to the most carefully.

Monday Morning Horoscope for Jan. 2, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino

You must watch the financial aspects of any professional arrangements that you make, and watch them carefully. With so much activity in Pisces, your sign of money and resources, you have a lot to offer — and also a tendency to sacrifice your own interests. Therefore, pay attention to this aspect of the discussion. Career is about a lot more than what you get paid, however, and that’s a reminder to make your next job one that really, truly matters to you.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for January 2017, #1131 | By Eric Francis

What good is fear? It has a purpose. It can be useful, for a moment. Yet that purpose is not to run your life. We live in such fearful times that this fact alone is frightening: the way so many people are paralyzed from taking the meekest action, or allowing themselves to feel or be vulnerable. I know you’re concerned about this, mainly because you feel it. Your example to the contrary is starting to make sense to others. Think of yourself as a messenger of courage. You’re starting to find a place for yourself in the world, in a way you never have before. You’re accomplishing this in a quintessentially Aquarian style of knowing when to apply firmness and when to use flexibility. Yet the best progress you can make would best be thought of as internally, out of conscious awareness of others. When you experience fear, resentment, hostility or aggression in any form, turn your awareness inward and address your feelings through prayer, forgiveness or process work (all of which leads to forgiveness, so you may as well start there). You may find that this is far more effective than your usual practical, reasoned intellectual approaches. Inner work matters, yet it’s often misunderstood: the first thing to do is to reach into yourself and ask for help. If you bring the small willingness, spirit will respond with the Great Rays.
