Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for January 2023 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries (March 20-April 19) — Jupiter is back in your sign for a nonstop run that goes through May 16, when Mr. Fat and Happy — the boss of the solar system — enters your money house, Taurus. This is a formula that says “be yourself and you will succeed,” through being self-involved with who you are becoming rather than who you were. What most of the world thinks of as holiday season is a highly productive time in your personal year, and I suggest you keep a balance between having fun with your family or friends, and focusing on your highest professional priorities. You’re unusually visible during the Sun’s trek through Capricorn (which is your 10th house of reputation and achievement), as if you’re standing in a spotlight. This factor, combined with Jupiter in your own sign, makes you some combination of irresistible and unstoppable, though you might want to tune that up a little and add the factor of accountability. Make sure that you conduct yourself with the highest level of integrity, because people will be paying attention to you, and looking to you for ethical leadership. You are blessed with considerable influence right now. What are you going to do with it? What example do you want to set? Think carefully; others will follow.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for December 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries (March 20-April 19) — This is one of those truly rare moments when the world is your oyster, as Jupiter re-enters Aries and the Sun lights up the success angle of your chart. Keep your mind not so much on your work but rather on what you want to do with your talent. Doors will open, and you may find yourself in the presence of wholly unexpected opportunities. However, with Mercury about to turn retrograde (Dec. 29 to Jan. 18, with a margin of error on each side), it is not a good idea to sign and fully commit to anything just yet. Any real proposal will allow you some time to negotiate, prepare and adapt. There may be exceptions, of course; sometimes you just have to pounce on an opportunity, but make sure you get the financials and scope of your involvement right, and determine whether something is a good fit. You have your options open and will likely be choosing from among several potential offers. Meanwhile, you are in the midst of Mars retrograde, which is urging you to think deeply and also to remove outdated agenda items from your plans. Stick to what is real, present and relevant — though the seeming backward movement of Mars is suggesting that you can retrieve an excellent idea from the past, in addition to much that you’ve learned from past activities. Be clear in your communications, and notice when someone speaks and understands your language. Evaluate carefully whether people are genuine with you (for example, do their words match their deeds?), and notice your own level of sincerity and devotion that comes from the heart and soul more than anywhere else.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for November 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries (March 20-April 19) — We live in a hall of mirrors. Perhaps we always have; the idea of reality as a reflection is nothing new. I’m talking about our environment of electronic communication, which seems like it’s ‘out there’ and ‘all around us’ but which can also be seen as a mirage that exists within our minds. I’m always reluctant to call all of perception an illusion, though there are times when it seems that way. There are also times when discovering this reveals the truth behind the veil — something more permanent and more meaningful than the fleeting world of pixels and data that our lives have become. Reality is what would be left when the power goes out or the network goes down. If you’re sitting in a dark, quiet room, on top of a mountain, or next to a lake, what do you have? You have your thoughts and feelings. You have what motivates you. You have your ideas about yourself. Mars retrograde in Gemini is designed to take you on a journey of your inner awareness. You do not need content feeds or little telepathic devices to communicate with yourself or with others, to dream, or to know what you want. All of that is contained within you already. And books are beautiful.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for October 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries (March 20-April 19) — The world, by which I mean existence, is swallowed by digital consciousness, has become a giant game of “you are wrong.” This is not a discussion of factual accuracy or intellectual integrity, but rather a mean-spirited drive to make sure that neither of those two things get to exist. It’s a game because it’s all a waste of time, which is designed to avoid the contact with reality and with one another that emerges from a state of trust. There can be no discoveries when everyone is suspicious of one another as a way of life. And yet trust would seem to be the very last thing people are interested in now, because it asks so much of them: in particular, making contact with their forgotten humanity. Yet you have this much, at least, to offer to yourself and to those around you. You know that your life story is now taking you deep into this territory, which is ultimately about trusting yourself. People make a big deal out of this, but only because their fantasies and delusions are threatened. You neither want nor need those; they are a waste of precious faith, of time and of opportunity to set your life on the path that you have chosen for yourself. Trust means going deeper than what you think. One of the most significant elements, and one that will come into full-force this month, is your willingness to reveal your own secrets to yourself. This includes being wholly and entirely willing to admit the ways in which you got it wrong — it being anything you decided based on information you know or should have known was false. When you discover those instances, quickly come to terms with the truth, and then make amends with yourself and whomever may have been in any way harmed or misled by your perceptions. Move swiftly from fantasy to reality, and honor your ongoing commitment to truth as your faithful companion.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for September 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries (March 20-April 19) — You cannot really be of two minds, though many people try. Without recognizing it consciously, they hold two competing belief systems, switching from one to the other. Often, this leads to what A Course in Miracles calls “the war against yourself,” which is designed to do one thing only — rob you of your spiritual inheritance. The way this is set up under what I call full digital conditions is mostly competition between inner and outer perception — your inner life, and your outer life. One example of this is how you feel, versus what you believe other people think. In our time, it’s truly challenging to bring your focus inward. It’s not merely that there are so many distractions. It’s that the nature of the digital environment draws us all out of ourselves, to the point where it’s difficult to sleep. The astrology of the remaining months of the year will be attempting to draw you inward, and to map out your inner territory. As foreign as this sounds, there may be an element of conflict or fear involved. Your own deep personal landscape may be unfamiliar to you, or seem like an intimidating place to enter. Why would that be? Well, because your whole spiritual reality exists within yourself — and there you will find your core being, your guides, and what Quakers call the Inner Light. None of this is in “the world.” It is all in you. To embrace this means to let go of the insanity of the embroiled mentality of image, projection and the belief system of the ego. Yet inward is the direction you are moving, and will be moving into more deeply. Practice passing through the turbulence and toward a space of reassurance, calm and what may feel like Divine presence — because it is.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for August 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries (March 20-April 19) — Through the early part of the month, a diversity of experiences will ensure that you discover, or rediscover, your true priorities. This will ideally be a daily exercise where you enact decisions as you determine what is necessary, and establish what aligns with your personal truth. 

The rub is that within a few weeks, once Mars enters Gemini, you could forget what you’ve learned, or decide that you’re confused, or somehow be of two minds. You may forget the thing that had urged you to come terms with yourself. 

One thing I can tell you is that your fundamental values don’t change so much. You may adhere to them, or violate them, but underneath, you know how you feel and you know what is true for you. It will be wise of you to note carefully what actually matters, and make all of your decisions on that basis. Your values are what get you through both the turbulent times, and the good times. Your values are the measure against which you determine what is true for you. There may be one crucial matter where you have decided that you’ve had enough of one particular way of life, or a rule that has bound you. 

It’s likely this has been irritating you for some years, potentially as far back as 2018 and you may finally decide that it’s time for a new approach. Yet this is not a light matter, and you may not feel at the outset like your feet are firmly set on your path. Tread your way with gentleness and quiet determination, and allow yourself at least one year before you consider changing your mind.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for July 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries (March 20-April 19) — If you are feeling disoriented or unstable, spend more time in nature and more time reading books. Express yourself in any way that keeps your mind awake, alert and engaged with your environment. The conjunction of Mars and Eris in your birth sign is urging you to claim back your soul from the digital environment. This is something we all need to do, and yet it’s not easy to determine that’s even an issue, and for most, it’s even more challenging to figure out what to do about it. 

Both sides of that equation require having special tools: observation and discernment, on the one hand, and expressive abilities, on the other. Neither are easy, as life is so packed with routines, responsibilities and holding together the many aspects of our lives that are constantly fraying or going out of control. You will know what you’re experiencing by its effects. If you notice exaggerated feelings, particularly anger or insecurity, that is a hint. If you find yourself constantly searching, or trying to figure out who you are, as if you’ve lost something, that’s a clue. Yet this might express mostly as confusion or a sense of emptiness. 

Let this provoke you to take action. There is no solution — there is only adapting. This is less about being in passive harmony with the overwhelming digital environment than it is about asserting yourself within your own life. Creative self-expression is no longer or a luxury a privilege of talent. It is a matter of sanity and survival. In a time when everything is being reduced to an algorithm, experiencing the universe in a creative and self-creative way is essential to actually living, loving and thriving. Many factors in your chart, including Jupiter and Chiron, say you have the personal resources and moreover, the will to do what you know you need, and what you surely want.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for June 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries (March 20-April 19) — You could set off a controversy without trying, by doing something that comes naturally to you — and you may be surprised by the fuss. Tread carefully where your family is concerned, particularly your elders, or anyone who fancies themselves in a position of authority. You can move more boldly in matters of your own personal business affairs, though do so with as little financial exposure as you can. Rather, speak softly and carry a big idea. Your mind is fresh and alive right now, and any sense that you are stuck is an illusion of Mercury stationing direct (June 3). Therefore, be patient with yourself. Mars and Jupiter lining up in the early degrees of your birth sign is exciting, and may come with a restless, gotta-burst-out feeling. Please notice when you feel internal pressure that you want to act on or in some way release. This must be done as a controlled burn, rather than haphazardly. Small actions or statements can set off unexpectedly large chains of events. So for a while, you need to pretend you live in a fireworks shed. Don’t play with fire; defuse situations that may arise; and delay your plans for starting anything until after Mercury moves to direct motion. You may not feel like you can hold off; Mars and Jupiter in your sign are urging you to get busy and do big things. However, you are not working with full information, especially about the financial angle. Use the time well. Plan ahead, look for flaws in your plans, and listen to squirrels and the odd things that people say to you.  Good advice (and cautions) will come in odd and unusual forms.

Planet Waves Weekly for April 28, 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries (March 20-April 19) — You may be looking for yourself, and wondering where to find yourself. You may have the illusion that it’s somewhere “other than where you are.” You may also notice, if you pause to pay attention, that what seems uncomfortable or painful will give you some of the most useful information. Your sense of interruption or being taken out of the usual trance is exactly what will serve you the best. So study carefully points of discomfort, inconvenience, or problems that seem to have no solution. They will reveal the basic coordinates that you’re looking for. Also, the coming week or so may seem a little strange, given that Jupiter is making its way out of Pisces and into your sign. That can come with a sense of pressure, or an edgy feeling, which is likely to resolve around May 10 once Jupiter shows up in Aries. However, those sensations will be among the most informative ones.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for May 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries (March 20-April 19) —  Just like that, Jupiter is about to enter your sign. This will magnify or expand all things in your world, and give you a much better sense that you belong on the planet. Its arrival in just a few weeks will let off pressure; you may feel your ears pop and be able to hear things much more clearly — so listen. Yet you may also feel like you’re walking around in two worlds at once, a dreamlike astral world, in parallel to the world you can see. You may experience this as déjà vu, as remembering your sleeping dreams in an usually vivid way at odd times during the day, or having the feeling that you’re in two places at once. Speaking of dreams, your activity on the subtle planes at night will continue to be unusually rich and equally informative. Consider it a form of normal consciousness, even though the rules are a little different. There are many spiritual theories which hold that all we perceive is a dream, and if true, this implies that you are the dreamer. The art of dreaming is sublime, and is initially based on observing that you are doing so. That is what those subtle clues (such as déjà vu and parallel world experiences) suggest. Now, the question is, how to direct and influence your experience. Jupiter will bestow on you the power of attraction. Your mere presence in any situation will bend space and time. You do not need to say much. Notice carefully who and what is drawn in your direction.

Planet Waves Weekly for April 15, 2022, for the Libra Full Moon | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries (March 20-April 19) — Many forces are urging you to shift the trajectory of your life in some bold way, but do you have the confidence? When you’re pushed or compelled to make a decision by forces outside your control, that does not matter. And it may not matter now; if you feel the impetus to take some radical steps, let your questions work themselves out, including how to finance your decision. It’s essential that you move from your body core and not from your head, your feet or based on visual cues. Imagine there is a line running vertically through your body, tighten it till you’re straight and tall, and then move with your hips and shoulders in alignment. I mean this metaphorically, though it will help to move this way physically too, focusing on your breath when you do.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for April 2022 — Part 2 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries (March 20-April 19) — It’s rare that people recognize their blessings, though I suggest you take the time to size up how good your life is, and how protected you are. I say this at the risk of knowing there must be an Aries out there who is doing terribly right now, and who would resent such a statement. However, even if you are experiencing some social conflict or scarcity, consider your life in the context of everyone else on the planet, and all the places where things are going very, very badly. The chances are, you are doing a lot better. You also have the potential to take things up a few notches. You have options open, including the ability and the potential to take much better care of yourself. You have work to do. You have healing personal projects that are making a difference in your life, and very likely in the lives of others.  And each day, you wake up with the freedom to choose to express yourself honestly: to actually be who you are. Take this time in both personal and collective history to consider what it means to be doing well. Can you take care of your basic needs? Do you have something to do that engages you? Can you feel a sense of your own potential? Do you have any sense that tomorrow might be a better day? Then you’re doing fantastic. The upcoming conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune in your 12th solar house, Pisces, describes a condition of protection and of blessing. Yet you must be open to receive what is being offered. This means waking up each day, accepting the gifts that are offered to you, and holding yourself worthy of them. This works better as a conscious strategy than as a hope, a dream, or an accident.

 Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for April 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries (March 20-April 19) — It’s now time to wrap up old business, which includes retiring expired plans and ambitions. These things have a way of laying around and consuming space, time and energy, your most important resources. It’s not enough to focus on what is new; you have important matters to resolve as you make one of the most important transitions of your life during the next year. This is associated with Pluto moving out of Capricorn and off of your cross of the heavens (the cardinal cross, consisting of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Cap). If you maintain a sense of the past, the present and the future, you will handle this transition deftly. Yet this requires focusing on things other than blazing forward with your many ideas. While you might think of resolving certain matters of the past as a delay, they will give you time to size up your current plans and ambitions, and winnow them down to what you want the most. At this stage of your life, you must be strategic. And it’s essential that you account for the qualities that make you and your creative work different from others. Any truly valid life plan will honor your distinctions, especially now as they are coming to the forefront under the influence of Chiron in your sign. Certain elements of your new phase of existence have already begun. You are entering a time that will be distinguished by your social involvement rather than professional aspirations. Your work-related life will follow this trend. The past 14 years of Pluto in Capricorn have been a wild ride, as you have navigated your way through various elements of ‘straight’ society. You are almost done with that, though not quite. So keep your focus on the present, and take every opportunity to resolve any past matter that could hold you back. From there, the way forward will be much easier to see and feel.

Special Edition for New Moon — March 3, 2022

Aries (March 20-April 19) — Do you love your life enough to take initiative? Do you care enough about the world to take leadership? Are you willing to accept that responsibility? It’s not just your career that’s undergoing a makeover; everything about you is, from the inside out. The external changes in your world are, in the first instance, more about removing what you don’t want to do, and what does not serve you, rather than emphasizing what does. Yet both may arrive with a similar burst of poignancy. You know by now that you don’t have infinite time on the planet. If you are going to express any part of your desires, you must allow yourself to be motivated by what you feel and what you want. As you release the considerations and concerns of the past, you will have space to listen to the calm, intelligent voice inside yourself. That voice, which is your true self, will offer you the ideas you need to find an entirely new direction in life. Yet the feeling is more like your direction finding you, and calling you home.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for March 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries (March 20-April 19) — There is a phobia going around about being different. Or you could say there is a mania about making sure one is seen as doing the same thing as others and believing what they believe. Forget it — no two people ever, anywhere, conduct their minds or bodies identically. That’s just a false notion, accepted for social convenience. It’s never true for you, and with Chiron transiting your birth sign, it’s not even a consideration for you. Everything about you stands out as different, though there is a diversity of ways to manifest this — including being easily provoked to insecurity. Chiron can work a few different ways, though at its best, it’s the influence that gets you to stand apart from not only the people around you but from your own past. The best results of Chiron are often provoked by a sense of injury of some kind, whether immediate, in the distant past, or some combination of the two. With that in mind, the extraordinary astrology of our moment is calling you to great achievements. Not just one: a series of them, in rapid succession. There are some conditions, or perhaps cautions, related to this. You must be restrained on the level of getting credit, or any credit. Be guarded about any form of public communication — it would seem likely that in this case, you want to stay far from social media, and conduct as much business on the phone or in-person as possible. Concern yourself with getting the job done. There are elements of your influence that will be invisible or off to the side. At times you will be the one who initiates the action, and at others, you will be the follow-through person. Track each situation carefully, and follow the connections between things. You may occasionally be tempted to use your power in an excessive way. For the purposes of your current chart, any use of power could be too much. Stick to the influence. Make suggestions. Ask questions. And, very quietly, always be ready with plans B and C, which you had best keep to yourself till you need them.

Aries (March 20-April 19) — You may have your hands full. That could mean more responsibility than you can handle, or everything seeming so tenuous that you are beyond your ability to get a grip on yourself and slow down. You must hold steady now, and take one step at a time. Your astrology is pushing you to take fast and decisive action; to exercise your executive authority. That, unfortunately, is likely to backfire. For the next week or so, and even for the next month but especially as Mars and Mercury make a series of sensitive aspects, you need to rein yourself in and make as few decisions as possible. The better goal would be positioning yourself to respond rather than react to unexpected developments — and there will be a few of those during the next four weeks or so. Think in terms of contingency plans: approximate statements of if/then, and also, having Plans A, B and C to handle some of the worst possibilities. However, to get from now till the next New Moon in early March without sustaining serious damage to your business enterprises and your reputation, you will need to be extremely cautious. Sometimes you know when a decision is something you cannot reverse, though under the current astrology, seemingly small choices can set off chain reactions. Some of that will happen anyway, and you will have to deal with it, though the key will be moving meticulously rather than in a haphazard fashion. There is one other thing you can do, which is to seek the assistance of your closest friends and allies. Make contact with people close to you who know what they are doing in situations where you lack experience. One of the challenges you face is conditions arising that are outside of your area of expertise. Therefore, it’s essential that you know when you do not know. This is the fine line between stupidity and genius.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for February 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries (March 20-April 19) — You seem to be surrounded by an astonishing mob of opinionated people, and may be wondering who your friends are, and more significantly, are not. You may be wondering who is right and who is wrong. Yet that matter is secondary to you nurturing your own spiritual connection and grounding in your truth. This is a deeply private matter, and it does not involve anything social, or scientific, or technological. It does not involve any other person, or their ideas. Rather, the one and only thing that matters is your idea of why you exist. This is more than an idea though — it’s about your direct experience. This is only as good of a teacher as your capacity to observe and learn from your journey. Any teacher is only as helpful as your curiosity and willingness to learn. Mars conjunct the Galactic Core suggests, though, that you may notice something and then quickly forget it. It may seem too strange, or elusive of words, like a dream that is lingering around the back of your mind. Does this matter? Do you learn from these things even if you don’t bring them to full awareness and embodiment? Perhaps, though I suggest you do your best to catch the lightning in a bottle. This starts with the feeling of a truth that cannot be argued pro or con. It is not right or wrong; it simply is. Immerse yourself in this feeling, as soon as it comes to you. Tune in and listen, sense, and notice. You are being offered a kind of personal truth that will help you make choices in the very near future. Beware that there are all kinds of people who are attempting to sway, influence, guide or manipulate you. The only thing you can do successfully in such a time is to connect with your knowledge and use that as the sole basis for directing your life. Yet this will take a form of discipline that is rare for this world: actually trusting yourself.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for January 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries (March 20-April 19) — Your central purpose right now is to align yourself with your professional goals, as they manifest in the present time. You have some catching up to do with yourself — such as a review going back to about 2000. That was another time, when everything seemed to change all at once, and you were compelled to figure everything out in a world that was changing faster than you could keep up.  Once again we live in a time when everything has changed, and is changing. Yet now you know much you did not know in the past. And at the present time, you are more intimately involved with the people and circumstances that surround you. There is no escaping them, and little chance you can hold yourself above them. Your charts describe coming to terms with your direct involvement in the world, and with certain specific partners. This must occur before you can actually move forward and take new territory. Therefore, the place to start is with the reality of your circumstances right now. With whom are you involved, and what is the nature of the involvement? Who is supportive of your efforts, and who is not? Once you have that done, work your way back, and tell yourself the story of the past dozen years or so. Take your time doing this, and keep going until you reach a point in space and time that feels so old it’s a little weird to be there. What would you say to that person, knowing all that you’ve learned in the ensuing decade or more? Be clear in your suggestions and specific in your ideas. This is most likely what will benefit you from learning and putting into practice now. It is not too late; in fact, you are right on time.
