aquarius card girlHi Elsa,

I’ve been the same man for 3 years, and while I love him very deeply I continually manage to sabotaged the relationship. I’ve broken up with him 4 times and each time has been for a different reason. This is the longest relationship that I’ve ever had, and we entered into it with the assumption that both of us wanted a long-term relationship that would eventually lead to marriage. However, I find myself in an up and down cycle of being extremely fearful of commitment, and then terrified of being alone.

What I’m confused about is whether I just have a phobia of commitment, or if this man is just not the right one for me. I love him so much that I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make the relationship work.

Confused

sun-moonMonday morning the Moon in Libra fits perfectly into the cardnial grand cross with Mars, Pluto, Uranus, and Mercury. Some will wake to the dynamic energy with a bang: “It’s here!” Some will roll over and say to the cat/dog: “Kill me now.” Which one is you has less to do with your personal transits, though that matters, and more to do with your personal happiness and resilience set-point.

"Woman Holding A Balance" by Vermeer“Woman Holding A Balance” by Vermeer

 

Overview

On April 14th, Mercury (communication and information) in Aries conjuncts Uranus, igniting abrupt words and/or revelations. Uranus shines the light of clarity, even if it’s unsettling. Pluto (transformation) in Capricorn goes retrograde on this day as well, shifting and intensifying the breakdown of old structures. April 15th brings Mercury up against a square from Pluto Rx, adding the energy of deep compulsion to words/information. Definitely not the moment for light-hearted discussions. But if you need to find out the truth, or want to make a statement, now’s the time. All of this acts as the final, few inches of the fuse that leads to the Full Moon eclipse (also on April 15th) in Libra. A culmination, ending or turning point will involve Libra themes: objective relationships, projections, surface appearance, polarities, …

So after we’ve looked into our nativity to get a good idea of who the people we will be attracted to are like and taken note of our temperament for easy and quick comparison, another step further is to consider the nature of planets, particularly within the contexts of relationships.  In the modern tradition, especially … read more.

Tracys Astro Salon » The Week Ahead

April 13th, 2014 @ 6:05 am by Tracys Astro Salon

Have you ever been in a car and the driver steps on the gas and you think, “Are we going too fast for this road”?   Good then you won’t be surprised by this week.
We are in a gibbous moon over the weekend. 
Focus on:
As you consider how your life is evolving and where you want to go what details are you missing?  How does your daily schedule reflect the life you want?  How are you daily actions and habits?  What do you do every day?  Seriously, what is your daily life and schedule?  If your life is not exactly what you want—then get real and look at your daily stuff.   What does it say?
Special Focus:
4/14: Mercury/Uranus brilliant but chaotic communication.  Disjointed thinking.
On Monday Pluto turns retrograde.  Once a year Pluto goes backwards for five …

There is so much to say, I can hardly seem to say it.
It’s quite a thing to live this astrology…
But you know ALLLLL about that, just as well as I do.
Could we be like doctors ~First do no harm~ ?

tumblr_l4at0mzFoX1qz7lxdo1_500

I don’t think it’s going to be that simple…

A swirl of activity, no rest for the restless.
Can you sleep?
Or is sleep an easy out, climb aboard and let dreamland find you…
The surreal marries the banal, and has so many mismatched babies.

Keep juggling and don’t put that glass down either.
Are you holding your breath?

As we move through April, remember that this change is a process, not fully encapsulated in any one single day.
A 2 year culmination ?
We can trace these threads to 2008

zodiac plate1“…X is interesting. She will probably get along with Y. X is social and fun and generous, but she also has the ability to run things.

I might consider this a problem if not for the age difference. Y is older and I think that X will note this. But she is a “star” of some type. Someone who’s eventually going to pull out of the pack.

I don’t think this is negative at all. I would hire her for sure. She’s probably got quite a bit a charisma. The ability to make people feel good goes a long way, so I would want her on my team…”

My copy of R.H. Naylor’s Home Astrology, (1933) around 80 years old, pages yellowing and brittle, can still prove to be a source of interest, as part and parcel of the history of popular astrology.
R.H. Naylor (1889-1952) was the first Sun sign astrologer with forecasts appearing in British newspapers – that was in 1930.

In Home Astrology, a book written for readers with no knowledge of the…

The astrology right now continues to be INTENSE!!  The Cardinal Grand Cross is in Full activation, plus we have two eclipses coming up. Everything is going so fast right now that it will take a concerted effort to stay focused and centered. 
 
 
 All of April will be like this, as  the combined planetary pressures continue to bear down on us (read last post by scrolling down) with the Uranus/Pluto square peaking Easter weekend (April 20th). Mars’ extended transit through Libra, sign of relationships, will continue to be active well into July.
Though a bit daunting, this is also a very exciting, dynamic time. Much can be accomplished if the energy is handled well. We will be tested to see if we can be Masters of our own destiny! 
It is time to step up folks.  Seize the day!!  
Caution: there …

 Volatile, isn’t it? Downright Spooky. We’ve been discussing for quite some time now the special danger posed by this month.

And what we’ve seen so far is only the orchestra warming up. This week we enter a two-week timeframe when the energies involved in a rare Cardinal Grand Square start hitting maximum tempo.

It starts on Monday – Euro-American market time – when Mercury adds its weight.

Tuesday brings another boost with a lunar eclipse Full Moon in Libra.

Thursday could be very interesting as Venus trines Jupiter with the Moon going into Sagittarius, a brief period when either extreme optimism, or extreme pessimism, will take hold. We’ve chatted before about the tendency for markets to make wide-range days with the Moon in Sadge.

And the following week, Mars, the mover of markets, adds maximum drive.

A lot of the …
