There’s a famous trail in Europe called the Camino de Santiago.

It consists of a network of ancient pilgrim routes that traverse several hundred miles of remote land in Europe. Every year thousands of people, or “pilgrims” as they’re called, embark on a journey of self exploration as they walk this trail. Some walk for days, others for months. The Camino is a relatively flat trail, and doesn’t require a high level of physical exertion per se, but one comes to know quite a bit about the capacity of their feet, and subsequently their mind, with every mile they walk.

Such is the nature of Jupiter in Scorpio.

Jupiter is that voice that beckons you, urging you to connect with something bigger than yourself. He pushes you to embark on the trail, he calls forth the joy of adventure, and the luck and opportunities you’ll need in order to plan and execute this large undertaking.

The ruler of Scorpio is Pluto, Lord of the Underworld and archetype of transformation or metamorphosis, the process of death and rebirth. Scorpio is the sign that shakes the very ground you find yourself walking on. This sign is the ache of your tired feet, the voice in your head that talks about pain and suffering and makes you wonder if you have the stamina to get to the end of this journey. But Scorpio is also the trust and the whisperings of transformation that wrap around you with your every step. It is the force that begins to stir you and blend you, alchemizing your very soul into something more substantial than you ever thought possible.

Jupiter in Scorpio will bring you many blessings on your journey, even as he takes you into some of the darkest places in your life and in your soul.

Imagine the pilgrims that have encountered nothing but bad luck. In the recounting of their experiences they plant seeds of doubt, causing you to think of everything that could possibly go wrong; until the realization strikes you that you are much more capable than they and in fact, could handle the same situations with confidence. There’s power in that revelation.

Imagine the jubilant and mysterious man at a hostel one evening, who regales you with fascinating tales of all the things he’s seen along the trail, scenes and situations that are more enthralling than any tour book you’ve yet read. Feel your heart swell as you listen to his stories of adventures that took him into seedy corners of a city or into a metaphorical–or literal–underworld.

Imagine the woman who tells with deep passion of her own transformative experiences along the trail. Her narrative serves to energize you into looking more deeply into your own reasons for coming on this walk.

With each day that passes, you become aware of opportunities for your own personal transformation. You come to terms with your own vulnerability. More light shines into your dark corners. And you walk.

The journey ends at the burial place of Saint James, which has more ancient pagan roots that run deeper, into times when this was a journey to land’s end, to the ultimate west, a place of ends and beginnings. It’s traditional to burn your clothes in this deeply mystical place, to make a sacrifice to the God of Walking and to let go of the few things that have supported you along the way.

And when you finally get off the trail, and back to your real life, the true shifts begin to materialize. You realize that like a snake, you’ve shed a layer of skin. You’re more prepared. You’re better able to face the challenges that life puts before you and best of all, you realize that you’ve developed a worldview that includes even the darkest human experiences and in turn, renders profound meaning.

Now, shifting out of the realm of imagination and into reality, picture a Camino of your own, right in the middle of your very substantial life. An invisible Camino, which appears when you put your feet on it with the right attitude. It can be anything that calls to you, excites you and challenges you, pushing you to transform in this moment, just as Jupiter in Scorpio intends.

It’s coming, and there’s a brilliance in that.

Jupiter begins traversing the deep, psychological terrain of Scorpio on October 10, 2017, and leaves Scorpio for Sagittarius on November 8, 2018.

How does this transit affect you?
If you are a Scorpio, Leo, Taurus or Aquarius born on the following dates (in any year), you’re in for a Jupiter Luck Year:
November 5 through 16
August 5 through 16
May 3 through 14
February 1 through 12

What’s the one thing you need to get right during this transit?
Vulnerability. Whenever Scorpio is involved, you cannot afford to be hard, defended or to launch preemptive strikes. Allowing yourself to get hurt is part of the experience and closing your heart to love (and the pain that inevitably comes with it) will only result in loss. So be open. Let your heart break open if necessary. Cast aside arrogance, distance and the safety they provide. This year’s adventure is a journey into intimate spaces and intimate knowledge. Take the first step with your heart exposed.

The Sun and the Moon will meet in the sign of Leo and will form a trine with Uranus in the sign of Aries and another with Juno in Capricorn during this month’s Solar Eclipse. The eclipse also forms a quincunx to Chiron.

A Grand Trine is permissive in its nature, so any expression on the part of one of the Trine’s members is easily supported and upheld by the others–whether that expression is positive or negative. Expressed well, this eclipse could signal innovation, liberation and prosocial behavior–but most likely born in a crucible of fire. Expressed badly, this eclipse could signal explosive disaster, in the archaic sense. The word “disaster” means “bad stars.” It may ultimately prove to be a good thing that Chiron quincunxes this eclipse, sabotaging its excessively fiery and excitable nature.

Details About This Eclipse

Date: August 21, 2017
Time of eclipse: 11:30 AM Pacific Time
Type: total (strong in intensity)
Visible in: Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Southern Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Northeast Georgia and The Carolinas.
At: 28 Leo
Nodal Orientation: the eclipsed Sun conjunct North Node creates an Initiating (not Releasing), nodal orientation
Shadow Agents:  Uranus in Aries, Juno in Capricorn.

Does It Affect You Personally?

If your birthday is on any of the following dates, you’re most likely to experience this eclipse:
August 16-26
October 17-27
January 13-23
May 14-24
Remember, not every eclipse touches everyone, but when it does, it’s usually noticeable. A lunar eclipse is likely to bring up strong emotions and to be experienced as a subjective event (unlike a solar eclipse, which is likely to be marked by an external, real-world event). You may notice events happening anytime within the week surrounding the eclipse (up to a few days before or after). The following script is just one possible way it could go.

You hear a knock at the door. When you open it, the Sun and Moon in Leo walk into your living room. The Sun is wearing a suit with a red power tie, and a nametag that says Donnie. The Moon is dressed in a black shirt with Mandarin collar, and a nametag that says King Jong Moon.  The two are fighting with each other–screaming and pulling each other’s hair. Before you are even able to greet them, the North Node comes from behind them, dressed as a schoolteacher.
North Node: Children, children! Please stop fighting, we are in this lovely woman’s living room.
The Sun and Moon begin fighting even more furiously, with each screaming that the other had started it. The North Node clucks her tongue and waves her magic wand. Your living room fills with a magical mist. When the mist clears, your living room is gone and you are now in a gradeschool play yard. The Sun and Moon briefly stop fighting for a moment and dumbfoundedly look around their new environment.
North Node: See? If you are going to act like children, then this is where you belong.
The Sun and Moon now both look about 8 years old. The Sun is a chunky kid who is dressed in very expensive clothes, because he comes from a wealthy family. The Moon, however, is dressed in tattered, patched clothes. Other kids gather around them in the playground.
Moon: I’m sick of being bullied by you Sun! You can’t scare me anymore. I’ve got bombs now, and I’m not afraid to use them. Who else of you kids wants to join my side?
Several of the children stand behind the Sun, but the Moon has a few allies on his side too. Most of the kids stand off to the side and huddle together, scared of what might come from this conflict. Some of the Sun’s allies try to talk sense into him, but he waves them off. The Moon is lighting a cherry bomb and lobs it over right next to the Sun.
Moon: Ha–take that!
The firework explodes, causing the Sun and his friends to jump.
Sun: That was too close!
Uranus in Aries sidles up to the Sun and whispers into his ear.
Uranus: Don’t let him mess with you! You’re the most powerful kid on this playground. You know you’re stronger than he is. Time for a show of force!
Uranus opens a large box of assorted fireworks, including a large stockpile of cherry bombs.
Uranus (with an expression of gleeful mania): Get a load of these babies!
Juno sidles up to the Sun also and whispers in his other ear.
Juno: You are not looking very authoritative right now. You’d better get some respect from that Moon guy.
Uranus: How about martial law? This is a war situation! Everybody has to obey you under martial law.
Juno: Yes, that sounds great and that could make you look really heroic.
The Sun is rummaging around in the box of fireworks, looking for the biggest ones.
Moon: I’ve had it! I may not have as many cherry bombs as you, but I’ve got something better. I will ECLIPSE you!
The Moon flings himself at the Sun. Everyone in the schoolyard sees this happening in slow motion–the Sun’s glow is gradually blotted out by the shadow of the Moon. The whole schoolyard begins going dark. The school nurse, Chiron in Pisces, rushes out from her nurse’s office and into the fray.
Chiron: Children! This is no way to behave. Have understanding and compassion for each other! She turns to the Moon.
Moon, I know you come from a very difficult upbringing because I’ve dressed your wounds before. But your dysfunctional home must not be allowed to infect the culture of the whole schoolyard. And Sun, you have things so much easier, but you are so insecure that you end up being your own worst enemy. And even though your values are more functional than the Moon’s, that doesn’t mean make it right to impose them by force and threat.
Uranus and Juno rally the other kids and the violence explodes across the schoolyard. As the Moon continues to eclipse the Sun, and the shadow grows longer and longer across the schoolyard, Chiron raises her voice in one last plea.
Chiron (turning to the Sun): You can end this and it doesn’t have to end in disaster. Right now, you have a choice between your ego and your life. What are you going to choose? (She turns to the Moon.) Any harm you do to each other will only come back to hurt yourselves and your families. What are you going to choose? An eclipse lasts for minutes, but history is forever. What will your descendants think of what you do today? And will you have descendants?
And now, Gentle Reader, we will draw a curtain across this scene, in hopes that the Sun and Moon can work something out before this becomes a real “disaster.”

The Lunar Eclipse on August 7 features the Moon in Aquarius, with Mars in Leo bringing up anger, irritability and a tendency to impulsive, possibly warlike, actions and also a dominating feel. Kind of like an overgrown toddler wielding power while in a tantrum! Lunar eclipses tend to manifest emotionally or in “inner world” ways, so beware of explosive feelings and the actions they might lead you to take. Fortunately, Jupiter is harmoniously trined the Moon, which may soften the feel of this eclipse and bring a resolution to the dilemma of centralized versus dispersed power that Leo and Aquarius are caught up in.

Details About This Eclipse

Date: August 7, 2017
Time of eclipse: 11:11 AM Pacific Time
Type: partial (weak in intensity)
Visible in: Australia, Antarctica, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe.
At: 15º Aquarius
Nodal Orientation:
Shadow Agents: Mars in Leo, Pallas Athene in Taurus, Jupiter in Libra.

Does It Affect You Personally?

If your birthday is on any of the following dates, you’re most likely to experience this eclipse:
August 2 to 13
November 2 to 12
January 30 to February 5
April 30 to May 10

Remember, not every eclipse touches everyone, but when it does, it’s usually noticeable. A lunar eclipse is likely to bring up strong emotions and to be experienced as a subjective event (unlike a solar eclipse, which is likely to be marked by an external, real-world event). You may notice events happening anytime within the week surrounding the eclipse (up to a few days before or after). The following script is just one possible way it could go.

You hear a knock at the door. Before you even answer it, you can hear shouting. There stand the Sun, Moon and Mars, all engaged in a fierce argument. The Sun sweeps into your living room first, pushing the Moon aside as he comes. The Sun in Leo is wearing a massive golden crown, which is cocked on his head at a jaunty angle, as well as fine, brocade robes which would suit the palace of Versailles. He stops and checks out his image in every reflective surface, and becomes irritable when people don’t notice him. Mars in Leo is pulled along in the Sun’s wake. Mars has his chest puffed out and his numerous medals of honor are clanking into each other, sounding like a large ring of keys. The Moon in Aquarius, who is being outshouted, persists in bringing her agenda, a huge scroll she is carrying and reading aloud from. The Moon is dressed in a plain gown unlike the finery of the Sun and Mars. Pallas Athene is bespectacled and dressed in a professional pantsuit. She trails behind Mars, but elbows in ahead of the Moon.
Moon: I’m here to represent the people and I’m far more concerned with making their voices heard than I am with looking fancy. You’ve got to understand that the people have rights too! I’ve even heard them called “inalienable rights–to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” You can’t just have things the way you want them. And you can’t just benefit yourself!
Sun: I am the FATHER of these people! Of course I know what’s best for them.
Mars: I’m behind you, sir, backing you up all the way. (He rattles his sabre)
Pallas Athene: Are you guys aware that there are serious outside threats to our nation and our way of life?
Mars: Lemme at ‘em!
Sun: What do you mean? Is it an opportunity for me to look good?
Pallas Athene: Yes, but only if you are serious about doing what’s right for your country.
Moon: Fat chance!
Pallas Athene: (to Moon) Yes, but you are only interested in giving the people what they need, but you probably DO NOT want to rule them! Are you aware that leadership is difficult?
The Moon gapes at this idea
Moon: No, I suppose I wasn’t considering that. I mostly just like to read, and enjoy one of my eccentric hobbies, such as bunny collecting.
The Sun and Mars both hip-bump the Moon out of their way. Mars’ medals clank loudly.
Sun: There! It’s settled. I shall continue to rule!
Mars: Yeah, him!
Pallas Athene (clears her throat):
Ahem! I was actually hired as an outside consultant to help SOLVE this issue, once and for all. Now can I get you two to sign here, here, and here?
She shoves over two clipboards in the respective directions of Sun and Moon.
Mars: To hell with paperwork! My king shall be the only one to rule!
Mars slices the two clipboards with his sabre.
Moon: Oh I’ll make sure this is the bloodiest revolution to date!
The Moon pulls out a powdered wig from under her tunic and places it on her head, a la Robespierre. She begins winding up her fist to strike Mars.
Pallas Athene: Children, children…now Moon, don’t do anything that you’ll regret…
Pallas Athene begins to look overwhelmed. Moon’s fist lands on Mars’ mouth. Chaos ensues in your living room. The Sun jumps into the rumble, wielding his sceptre and swinging it blindly. All four are lost in a cloud of confusion, elbows and kicks.
Suddenly, the doorbell rings. You sidle around the brawl to your front door and open it. Jupiter in Libra marches inside, wearing a three piece suit, and ambassador’s badge. His car, parked outside, has diplomat’s plates.
You: Thank goodness you’re here!
Jupiter: I have just the solution for your political crisis!
Mars: Hey it’s the big man on campus! Who do you think you are?
Moon: Yeah, who invited you to the party? We have enough people fighting, we don’t need one more dissenting voice!
Pallas Athene: Yes, please leave. As you can see, I have this completely under control.
The Sun’s elbow comes out from the melee and socks Pallas Athene in the jaw. She goes goggle-eyed and falls over.
Jupiter: Uhh…yes, I can see that. Maybe I can show you guys this!
Jupiter pulls out a document from the breast pocket of his enviously smart suit. Everyone stops and looks in his direction.
Jupiter: This document can be your new constitutional democracy! Now you can rule, Sun in Leo, but you must do so according to the needs of the people, as represented by Moon in Aquarius. And Mars, you can help protect both!
Mars: I know I can do it! And then some! Just give me a battle to win!
Jupiter: Moon, you’re going to have to uphold your end of the bargain. The people must show up for voting and must stand up for what they believe in.
Moon: Ok, it’s high time we did that anyway.
Jupiter: And Sun, you’ve got to rule wisely and stop grabbing all the attention and glory for yourself. Do you think you can do that?
Sun: Does that mean I get to keep on being king?
Moon and Pallas Athene: Yes!
Sun: Then I’ll try. But you need to follow my lead!
Everyone: We will.
You: Whew!
Jupiter (herds the whole crew ou the door and whispers to you as he goes): We’ll see how long this lasts.

February’s Solar Eclipse could constitute a real spiritual cleansing or just some old-fashioned escapism as the Sun descends into the self-disintegrating world of Pisces. Juno in Capricorn and Ceres in Taurus are on hand to assist in the proceedings, offering Earthy solutions to a Watery problem. But how can they help one who is used to finding his answers at the bottom of a bottle? And what wisdom does Neptune, ruler of this eclipse’s sign, have to offer?

Details About This Eclipse

Date: February 26, 2017
Time of eclipse: 6:58 AM Pacific Time
Type: annular (weak in intensity)
Visible in: southern South America and southern Africa.
At: 8º Pisces
Nodal Orientation: Releasing. The eclipsed Sun conjunct South Node in Pisces creates a Releasing (not Initiating) nodal orientation.
Shadow Agents:  Juno in Capricorn, Ceres in Taurus, Neptune in Pisces

Does It Affect You Personally?

If your birthday is on any of the following dates, you’re most likely to experience this eclipse:
February 21 to March 3
May 24 to June 3
August 26 to September 5
November 25 to December 5

Remember, not every eclipse touches everyone, but when it does, it’s usually noticeable.  A solar eclipse is likely to be marked by an external, real-world event (unlike a lunar eclipse, which is likely to bring up strong emotions and to be experienced as a subjective event).  You may notice events happening anytime within the week surrounding the eclipse (up to a few days before or after).  The following script is just one possible way it could go.

You hear a knock at the door. You answer it. The Sun is there, swaying and looking bleary. He staggers into the house, followed by the Moon, who is shaking her head. Close behind them are the North Node in Virgo and the South Node in Pisces.
Moon: I’m sorry about this. He’s so drunk he doesn’t know what he’s doing.
Sun: I’m not drunk! I’m hungover.
South Node: You’re not drunk or hungover. You’ve been drinking so much you don’t get drunk or hungover anymore. It’s a perpetual state with you these days.
The Sun starts shaking.
Sun: Really need a drink.
The Moon’s eyes swell up with tears of empathy. The Sun crashes on the couch and the Nodes are both wearing disapproving looks.
North Node (to the Moon): You’ve been enabling his drinking.
Moon: We need to plan an intervention for him. I can’t live with this anymore.
South Node: I wholeheartedly agree. We’re going to need some help. I’m in Pisces so I’m calling in my planetary ruler, Neptune.
He snaps his fingers. There’s another knock at the door and Neptune sweeps in. She’s wearing a long, flowing gown of an uncertain color which shimmers so much it’s hard to look at her.
Neptune: I know the answer! You need a rest cure. What used to be called “taking the waters.”
Sun: Is that what they meant at that AA meeting where they said that I have a hole in my soul that I’m pouring alcohol into?
Neptune: Yes, exactly. You have forgotten who you are. You’re lost and you need to reconnect with the eternal. Spirituality is what will fill that hole. Your very own higher power.
Moon: That’s what I’ve been saying for a long time.
North Node: And if this doesn’t work, it’s rehab for you.
Neptune waves her hand and sparkles come out of her sleeve which turn your home into a spa. A giant fountain filled with healthful mineral water starts bubbling away in the middle of your living room.
Neptune: Many cultures around the world have had a tradition of bathing to cleanse both the body and soul. . .
Juno: (popping in at the door) Did somebody say cleanse? I’m in Capricorn and I think some austerity is called for here. Sun, you’ve got a buildup of toxicity. Time for a body scrub!
She offers everyone a plain, dark robe to wear. The other deities throw off their raiment and don the robes. Juno then hands out jars of scented pumice and shows the Sun a table. He immediately disrobes and gets on it. Juno, Neptune and Nodes proceed to slough off several layers of the Sun’s dead skin, helping to remove toxins from the his body.
Sun: Ow! Wow!
You: Does that feel great or terrible?
Sun: Wow! Both!
He is squirming under the forceful hold of the other gods who continue scrubbing at him until he’s quite red.
You: Um, all this nakedness is making me uncomfortable—
Neptune: We’re gods. Do you think we care about that?
Ceres (popping her head in at the door): Did someone say body scrub? I’m always up for one of those. And I’ve brought something nice for you, Sun.
Ceres in Taurus steps in. She has brought a giant tureen of chicken noodle soup she has spent hours preparing.
Ceres: I cooked a bone broth and made soup from it just for you, Sun! It’s a panacea passed down to me by my great grandmother.
You: Do goddesses have great grandmothers?
Sun: I can see I’m outnumbered here so maybe I should just surrender.
He picks up a spoon and begins digging into the soup.
Sun: Wow, this is delicious! I can’t think when was the last time I enjoyed actual food.
Moon: Yeah, take a break, Sun! You shine on the world every day but when do you get to rest?
Just then, the Sun begins to go dark.
Sun: It’s starting!
Neptune: Get him to the pool, everybody!
Moon and Neptune help him over to the pool and ease him into the warm water. The Sun sizzles and crackles a bit as he drops into the water, which warms from him being in it, making a delicious bath for everyone to enjoy. Everyone else also disrobes and steps into the hot pool, including you, despite your embarrassment, which no one seems to share. You’ve never felt anything so relaxing and the hot water makes you want to melt right down to your bones.
Sun: I’m feeling a deep sense of gratitude that all of you are in my life. And I’m feeling truly cleansed. Now, how about a drink to celebrate?
All the other planets shake their heads.
Moon: Sometimes a stressful square works better than a harmonious trine or sextile.
Juno: Yeah, if we were harder on him, it might have had some lasting impact.
Ceres: Perhaps he just wanted the attention. He is the Sun, after all, and always was something of an egomaniac.
All the planets rise from the water in a single motion, and grab Sun by the arms.
Sun: What now? Where are you taking me?
North Node: To rehab. You’re out of control.
Sun: Noooooooooooooooooooooo! I don’t have a problem!
And they exit your home en masse, dragging the Sun with them.

February’s lunar eclipse involves a self-centered Leo Moon supported in a Grand Trine with Saturn and Uranus. These fiery-placed planets are not going to hold the Moon back but the Sun in Aquarius (with help from Jupiter in Libra) has other ideas. The mood is one of grandstanding and large gestures—but does all this sound and fury signify anything? Sometimes a blowhard just wants attention and doesn’t care if the audience is bored.

Details About This Eclipse

Date: February 10, 2017
Time of eclipse: 4:33 PM Pacific Time
Type: penumbral (weak in intensity)
Visible in: Asia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, North America, South America.
At: 22º Leo
Nodal Orientation: Initiating. The eclipsed Moon conjunct North Node in Virgo creates an Initiating (not Releasing) nodal orientation.
Shadow Agents:  Uranus in Aries, Saturn in Sagittarius, Jupiter in Libra

Does It Affect You Personally?

If your birthday is on any of the following dates, you’re most likely to experience this eclipse:
February 5 to 15
May 8 to 18
August 10 to 20
November 9 to 19

Remember, not every eclipse touches everyone, but when it does, it’s usually noticeable.  A lunar eclipse is likely to bring up strong emotions and to be experienced as a subjective event (unlike a solar eclipse, which is likely to be marked by an external, real-world event).  You may notice events happening anytime within the week surrounding the eclipse (up to a few days before or after).  The following script is just one possible way it could go.

You hear a knock at the door. You answer it. The Moon in Leo is on your doorstep, dressed in a fiery orange superhero costume. The Sun in Aquarius is behind the Moon, trying to hold him back. The Moon bursts into your living room, quickly followed by Saturn and Uranus. Saturn is wearing black, including a pencil skirt, and has a clipboard, with a pen tucked behind her ear. Uranus is covered in wires, trying to untangle them. All burst into your living room, where they land in a heap.
Moon (pulling himself out of the heap): And I want thunder and lightning and a big, big spotlight right on ME!
Uranus: I’m still working on untangling these wires I put away so badly last season. Then I’ll get to work on your special effects and lighting. Believe me, this is going to be SPEEEEcial!
Saturn (standing up and smoothing her clothes with dignity): I’m seeing this as the smash hit of the year. We’re going to get an award for this one!
Sun (finally walking in the door, followed by Jupiter): Are you guys remembering that it’s not just about making a splash, but that the critics will be watching and we want to make a good impression?
Moon: This production is MY baby! It’s an expression of ME! It’s going to go how I WANT it to go!
Jupiter: But have you really thought about what the audience wants?
Sun: Yes, have you put out any surveys on social media?
Uranus: That’s my department and I’m all over his social media!
Moon: They LOVE me on social media!
Sun: Has it ever occurred to you that maybe you have a big head?
Moon: No, NEVER! I really am this great.
The Moon in Leo seems unable to speak except in superlatives. There’s another knock at the door and the North Node in Virgo walks in. As the North Node approaches the Moon, the Moon begins to go dark.
Moon: Hey, stay away!
North Node: It’s eclipse time.
Sun: Thanks for coming, North Node. Thank goodness you’re in Virgo and have a sense of discernment. I think the Moon needs your input as a theatrical critic. What is your genuine opinion of this production?
North Node: It’s got a lot of holes in it.
Moon (getting darker): It’s not finished!
North Node: I really don’t think it’s going to be worth paying attention to.
Moon (getting darker still): I’m not ready!
Saturn (standing behind the Moon and propping him up): It’s ok dear, just go on with what you’re doing. Others see you as an authority and you can do what you want.
Uranus (also standing behind the Moon): Be the change you want to make in the world! It doesn’t matter what others think. Especially those stupid critics. They just want to tear you down.
Sun: This is a vanity play for you. It’s not enjoyable for the audience.
Jupiter: I totally concur. This isn’t just you broadcasting whatever you want. It’s a relationship with the audience. They have a choice about whether to watch.
Just then, the South Node in Pisces walks in the door. She’s carrying a scrying bowl.
South Node: Here’s what the future holds.
Everybody looks in the bowl to see what is to come. The water in the bowl is cloudy at first, then images form. Days flip by on a calendar, and a week later, the show opens. A newspaper appears on the following day, saying “the show flopped.” The critic has written an article about the show, calling it a narcissistic exercise in self-aggrandizement, doomed to implode in its own. . . manure. After another week the show closes due to lack of ticket sales. Watching all this, the Moon, at his darkest, flops down on the sofa and bursts into tears.
Moon (bellowing tearfully): What should I do?
Sun: Still the center of attention, aren’t you? Before it was all about your bellows. Now it’s all about your tears.
Jupiter: Are you ready to actually listen?
Moon: Yes!
Jupiter: Think of it as a dialogue. You have a relationship with the audience. What do they actually want to see? What do they need from you?
Moon: I’m having an epiphany. I need to rethink this whole thing. I need to listen to the audience. It’s not about me.
Sun: Yes, I think some THINKING is exactly the point. You’ve been doing, not thinking.
The Moon starts to brighten up again.
Moon: I don’t know how to pay attention to the audience’s needs and interests. Will you help me?
Everyone: Of Course!
Jupiter: We only needed to be invited.
North and South Nodes (in unison): Our work here is done.
They lock arms and stroll out the door while the rest of the group begins brainstorming the next season’s show.

Those who are born under the fiery, fixed sign of Leo (born between July 23 and August 22) are widely known for their showmanship, creativity, and leadership. Ruled by the Sun, the very core of our solar system, Leos tend to take the center-stage and can even have their own gravitational field. But when are you the adored rock star of the Zodiac, or just being an obnoxious attention-hogger? It’s fun to have your own fan base, but do you know when to share the spotlight with others?

Leo, when you’re at your best. . .
. . . you’re one of the most magnanimous member of the Zodiac. No one can throw a party like you–you are a natural host/ess and can make anyone feel welcomed. Since you can shine like the Sun, that means everyone can’t take their eyes off of you. You take to leadership like a fish to water, and can serve as a guiding light for those to follow. You also exude confidence–whether you actually have it or not. Know the expression “Fake it until you make it?” There’s some Leo logic right there. You also have a great talent for finding the talent in others. Therefore, you make an ideal motivational coach, and can help others find their own confidence and strengths. Nobody can build up someone else’s self-esteem like a Leo!

. . . and at your worst. . .
I’ve already mentioned that your ruling planet is at the center of our solar system. That seems like an important position–and it is. However, sometimes being at the very center means that it’s easy to forget that there are others out there. Sometimes when you shine so brightly, you cast a shadow over everyone else. This may make you feel justified in your own ‘brightness,’ but be careful of devolving into a rampant narcissist. Yes, people DO notice you, and they DO follow you, but you are not the only one with something to offer in this universe. Also, there is a fine line between having star quality, and just desperate showboating. If you place yourself in the center of attention all of the time, people may actually start feeling more drained by you than dazzled.

Handling your Cancer nature
Every Leo has a performative, creative side to their personality. For you to really shine in life (and maintain your sanity) you need to find an outlet for performance. Perhaps you were born to be on the stage, have your own YouTube channel, write a blog, or anything that gets you SEEN somehow. Also, once you have found your platform, make sure to share it with others. Be generous with the spotlight! And here’s another tip for being a great performer–learn how to play to your audience, meaning: learn to listen to others. The more good feedback you get and integrate into your leadership/performance, the more your audience will grow and grow. And how rewarding is that for you, Leo!

Clueing others in about you
There are some important things that every Leo needs from others people. Leos have a social nature, and they can really give and give the same way that the Sun gives and gives its light to Earth every day. But if all of that giving goes unappreciated, than a Leo can feel quite depressed. There are mature ways to tell others that you need appreciation for all that you do for them. And when you finally get some, than you will be a very bright, and happy Leo! Another thing that Leos need from others is to be treated with respect and dignity. Even the quiet Leos out there (and there are a few!) can have a rather dignified presence. If you find others laughing at your expense or not taking you seriously enough, speak up for yourself. Respecting yourself is the first step to getting others to respect you.

Aries, this post is all about you, which must mean that I have your full attention! Your sign is the hard-headed ram (born between March 22 and April 20) and like a ram, you literally plunge head-first into life. You’re a natural leader, and the world needs people like you because it is full of followers. But when are you being a pioneering maverick or just an obnoxious blowhard?

Aries, when you’re at your best. . .
…you are being honest, direct and forthright. Nobody has to be a mind-reader around you, because you say what you are thinking with little hesitation. And people like your friendly and transparent nature since ‘what you see is what you get.’ There is a beautiful simplicity to you, and you can get a lot accomplished in your life solely because you know exactly what you want. The sun is exalted in Aries, which means that your ego’s desires translate directly into action. You are also great at pursuing things in all aspects of your life—relationships, jobs, money—so you quite often end up getting the things you need.

…and at you’re worst…
There is another side to your go-getter nature which can actually alienate others. You are the solipsist of the zodiac, so you have a hard time seeing how your actions affect others, or that there are other dimensions to reality beyond yours. You can seriously lack self-objectivity, and lose perspective on your own behavior. Know how irritating a screaming, self-centered infant can be? Well that may be an accurate metaphor for how others view you at times. You can be hasty, rushed, and while you are good at starting things, completing projects is more of a challenge. Your ‘honesty’ (which you value so much) can really just come off as abrasive, blunt and unnecessarily provocative. Your irascible nature means that you can also fly off the handle easily, while others are left spinning in your wake. 

Handling your Aries nature
In order to accomplish things at a pace which keeps you interested, try the method of ‘fail fast, fail often’ where you allow yourself to jump right into a project and fail (without penalty) as many times as it is necessary to successfully complete it. If you spend all of your time dwelling on one aspect of a project, you’ll get bored, and boredom is anathema to you. Also, try to dial down your behavior around others who are slower or have lower energy than you—otherwise you will end up bulldozing them. And lastly, have an apology ready at hand. You will inevitably step on people’s toes so be prepared to apologize quickly and gracefully. That can smooth things over and get you back on the fast track, where you belong.

Clueing others in about you….
Tell others that you appreciate it when they shoot from the hip—let them know that you need strong feedback in order to curb your behavior. Skywriting their words from a plane should do it. Also let others know that every once in while, your Aries bubble may pop and you will feel deflated. Don’t let them ever assume it’s their fault, since you, Aries, will re-inflate your own bubble in no time. And in a similar vein, let others know that if you get angry (which you will), they shouldn’t feel responsible for it nor should they take it personally. Your emotions are like a monsoon season—the skies will be bright and sunny until a torrential downpour strikes. Ten minutes later, the sun will come back again. Let others know that they can run for cover, but that you won’t hold a grudge and will quickly let go of whatever set you off. You’ll always do best with companions who also don’t hold a grudge and who are able to let go of any of your stupid mistakes right away, as being reminded over and over again of what you did wrong brings you unnecessary pain. Then you can get back to barreling through life in your usual way!
