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

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — The cloud of confusion over your relationships may have you taking some kind of radical action to test where you really stand with people, or with someone in particular. You may feel like you have to assert your individuality just to prove to yourself that you have some. However, this is a more aggressive approach than you need. We live in times when many people are entirely out of joint with themselves, and this is the underlying cause of the violent nature of our times.

Here, you have a choice how to discover yourself; and to actualize yourself. Once you know this is what you’re doing, I reckon you will want to take an approach that is gentler on you and the people around you. If you see yourself as someone whose primary identity is being invested in one relationship partner, you are likely to find that confining and limiting at this stage of your life. You’ll find much easier fulfillment socializing in groups that fit the approximate decision of family-of-choice. 

In short, you don’t need to be so competitive. It would be wholesome for you to spend any time at all where there is an abundance of resources of every kind, including emotional, and food, and the sense of people caring about one another. This creates entirely different dynamics than anywhere there is even a hint of jealousy, or the kind of transaction where people bill their friends for a dinner party using Venmo. 

In fact, this whole style of existence, which sadly seems to be on the rise, has grown old and annoying. But fortunately, a new world is rising: one where people are closer to the land, and as a result, to one another.

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

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — You may be grappling with an ethical issue. And you may not yet have noticed that’s what it is. However, if something is irritating you, or making it difficult to sleep, or in any way causing you to doubt yourself, consider that it may be a matter of right or wrong. The wrinkle is that you may be trying to process this question through the ethics of someone else, your mother, for example. The way to parse this out is to consider what each of your parents might do under the same circumstances, and give them a voice (whether they are living or not). The idea here is to notice their hang-ups, and put pins in the map when you find them, rather than take them on as your own. Parse the issue through the filter of religion as well. Most of us are full of old conditioning about how pure we’re supposed to be, and how allegedly dark and evil certain kinds of thoughts are. Do your best to account for these influences, and stick a few more pins in the map. Religion can include various shades of New Ageism and secular humanism and pop psychology and all of that. These are not necessarily life-affirming philosophies. Your personal spirituality needs to honor the fact that you are an incarnated human with physical and emotional desires. If you have a true organic spirituality, it’s about honoring your physical vehicle and all that it does, and all that it wants. You don’t need to do anything other than stand apart from judgments that were injected into you, and allow nature to take its course.

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

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — You may be wondering whether the current developments in a relationship are real, or too good to be true. Keep a positive mental and emotional state — to the degree that is possible in our moment of time — and see how the situation plays out over the next few weeks. Whether your question involves business matters, personal ones, or the place where the two meet, you are in a state of greatly enhanced potential. Yet it’s easy to lose faith, or run out of patience. While it would not be helpful to fixate on the future, or on outcomes, more is possible than you may imagine. In any situation involving another person, one thing is essential: that all parties move with the situation. So stay flexible, and portable, in all ways. Rather than being obsessed with an outcome, stay in contact with someone or something that you consider to be worth aspiring toward. Know what you want to grow into.

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

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — Your astrology looks like that of someone about to receive an inheritance, or to come into possession of a trust fund. There are many possibilities, though the thing to remember is that you have resources available. Therefore, I suggest you engage in an exercise of calmly noting when you or someone close to you has a need; and then assume that you have or can acquire the means to meet that need. Now, this is always true on some level, though often it doesn’t seem that way. In most ways, the world is described by lack, not abundance. Yet astrology calls attention to different things at different times, and Jupiter is moving into the realm of shared resources. You need to trust yourself enough to use other people’s money. It is likely that they already trust you, and while you must not take that for granted, I suggest you practice having confidence in that fact. One thing is essential: that you know a warning when you hear it. While you don’t need to let others decide what you should fear, I suggest you take all cautionary words under advisement for long enough to evaluate them and perhaps seek a second opinion. Be especially alert when dealing with people in power: bosses, higher-ups, government agencies and Indian chiefs of every variety. Make no assumptions. Proceed consciously and on the basis of facts, rather than of rumors. And remember, who you know is as important as what you know. Both count for extra these days.


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

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — Your surroundings and many people in them are presenting you with a vast diversity of options for what to say, do and think. Some are appealing, yet none may actually be your true preference. You are entitled to your own views, your own desires and to make your own decisions. It seems like you’re thinking long-range when others are saying that you have to work only with what you have right now. You know that far more is possible than even the more enlightened people around you may think or believe. So this is a fine time to live your life your way. People will eventually catch up with you, though more likely, you’ll be meeting some interesting new collaborators as you leave the realm of the familiar and dive into the unknown.


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

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — The sense of isolation you’ve been experiencing is like a leaf blower running outside your house: you might not notice it until it stops. Then there is the relief of silence, and your senses are returned to your full possession. For many years, Neptune has been opposite your Sun, or your rising sign. This can create a convincing illusion that people are unavailable, out of reach, or nonexistent. With the assault on all things social the past few years, this has likely been exaggerated. Now Jupiter is making it’s one and only alignment to Neptune in Pisces — until the late 22nd century. This is happening in your house of relationships (your 7th), which is also your ‘zone of projection’. The illusion is that much of what you see in the 7th comes from your own consciousness. One of the more startling lines from A Course in Miracles is that, “projection makes perception.” The suggestion here is to be conscious of what you think and feel, particularly as you may ascribe it to others. I suggest you consider your expectations in your relationships, and note which of these are bred by your past conditioning. The pairing of Jupiter and Neptune is encouraging you to consider the role of denial and that of sacrifice. Though it does not always feel this way, much of what passes for reality is a canvas that you paint. And one of the ways you do that is by noticing what is so, along with choosing what works for you. And though for quite some time, the world and its people have seemed distant, they are likely to be feeling a lot closer now. When there is low-hanging fruit, you’re being invited to reach for it. What you absorb into your body and soul will change you, so as you experience others, remember to be flexible.

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

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — You are discovering that you’re not so isolated after all. Neptune making its seemingly endless trip across the Pisces ocean — your relationship house — can create the illusion that nobody can sees you, or if they do, they do not bother to notice your existence. When did that start to change? Anyway, you’re in a different place, and Neptune has a different role, which is to create a sense of shared purpose, harmony and even a spiritual affiliation. While it’s true that there are some sources of conflict (for you, associated with a series of conjunctions by other planets to Saturn in Aquarius), don’t let them distract you. Make some distance between yourself and those who are prone to discord. You may notice that this comes with an aversion to being productive — that is the essence of conflict. Be mindful of people whose lives are one long health drama, and also, do your best to take care of yourself. That all said, you are welcome to take advantage of your improved social freedom. This comes with an environment that is overall more favorable to the kinds of things you love to do the most. However, if there is a catch, it is that you must take the initiative; your decisions and your choices are what lead the way forward for you. If you find yourself waiting for someone else to make the first move, do it yourself. If you want to make an improvement in some aspect of your life, be decisive and take action. You are in an environment where what you focus on will grow. This is why it’s essential to emphasize the positive with your choices and your actions, and sidestep those whose middle name is “Friction.”


Special Edition for New Moon — March 3, 2022

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — Faith is never harsh. It’s not supposed to be about judgments, nor about morality. Ultimately, faith is a matter of liberation from worldly limits and beliefs. It’s also about a measure of freedom from making sure that every last thing turns out right. We are all carrying a heavier-than-usual burden right now, as worldly systems seem to strain under their own weight. Yet for you there is a much more personal angle. You have been struggling for some time to get over a combination of duties and limitations that you seemed to be born into, and took for granted — until you noticed that other people did not seem to have them. This placed you in a position of working out your right to express yourself over many long years, through challenging situations. The past two years have been a culmination point, where having fun was a matter of do or die, even as the world hid in its room with the door closed. Please — get yourself out into the sunshine and make new friends, the kind who think you have the right to have some fun.

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

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) —  For the next few weeks, you will see all that you’ve been missing. You will feel the presence of those who seemed distant or unavailable. You’ll also get a chance to see many issues in your environment that were invisible or obscured. The benefits of this astrology will last through mid-April or so. While you can see the human landscape around you, map out the territory: notice people who are from this seeming new perspective. Note who feels physically and emotionally present rather than in name or concept only. Notice who is friendly and who is hostile. Study people’s agendas, noticing whether their words and actions comport or conflict. Your most important information will come from this one analysis. There are no friendly people who do hostile things. There are no truthful people who deceive you. Nobody who says they are in your life to help you then uses you to serve their agenda without your direct consent. You will have a reason not to make these observations: if you do, you will need to make adjustments to your perceptions, choices and the details of your relationships. For one glorious, extended moment, you will see the world as it is rather than as you want it to be. Most people find it far easier to merely carry on as usual, though you are responsible for what you know.  You may need to adjust your perception of certain people and the circumstances they represent. This will not only be a downward correction. When you look honestly, based on actual evidence, you will discover that there are several people able and willing to help you. There is one other item: this is not the time to be risk-averse when it comes to your curiosity, your creativity or your pleasure. You may have noticed your tendency to cancel these elements of your life when you’re feeling nervous or untrusting of life. Yet when you exercise these things, you test your reality, and therefore, find out what is real for you and what is not. You can only learn these things through your own direct, personal experience. 


Planet Waves Horoscope for February 3, 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) —  There is no perfection. To seek it, or to insist upon it, amounts to a game, and the purpose of games is to avoid intimacy. A much better indicator of usefulness is whether something is fun. It may even feel like a diversion, or a guilty pleasure. That’s the thing to reach for, and engage with your various mixed emotions. The guilt is the thing you are working out. While we take this as a normal or typical emotion, it is really a war against your own reality. So working out guilt is about making peace with your life, your preferences and your pleasure.  You have long been involved in this process, through many ups and downs in the long incarnation of Pluto in Capricorn (which dates back to 2008). You might say the nature of this transit has been to reclaim something that was lost during your childhood and along the way, to claim your soul. And what is that, exactly? Think of it as the purpose to which you keep returning. In the words of Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life: “Some energies have a spiritual source which act upon a person’s soul. However, this soul does not exist ab initio (inborn, from the beginning) as orthodox Christianity teaches; it has to be brought into existence by a process of guided self-observation. However, this is rarely achieved owing to man’s unique ability to be distracted from spiritual matters by everyday trivia.” There is nothing quite like Pluto to keep dragging, pushing or driving you back to what is necessary for you. The question is how willingly you take part, and what you do about the obstacles — and for you, guilt is the most effective of them. This can manifest as pleasure anxiety, overblown work ethic, a rigid quality, being obsessed with organizing the present or planning the future, or structuring your life down to the last detail and minute of the day — anything that blocks the spontaneous flow of events. Make some room for that now. Leave yourself space and time to explore in an unstructured way. You don’t always need to have the next thing planned right up until your bedtime. What you think of as a soul will enter the spaces in between, so be generous with yourself.

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

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — The Beatles song “Let it Be” could be a theme of your life now. Remember, though, that Paul McCartney put his faith in the Blessed Mother, not the government or the corporate establishment. He puts his faith in she who offers words of wisdom, not a threat, or punishment. And the sense of peace he feels is real, not some hope for better things on another day. Like many people, you may be experiencing health concerns that are rising to a screech. Virgo often experiences a bit of hypochondria. Yet now this is being driven by a degree of groupthink that the world has not seen since the Red Scare. If I may make a few suggestions, based on your astrology: technology will never be the source of your peace of mind, your health or your personal growth. At best, it’s a tool, and at worst, a hypnotic device that is shocking you out of yourself. You will get far better advice from a tree than from WebMD. With Aquarius on your house of health and healing, you may run into a persistent issue, which is thinking that your personal situation is in some way up for a vote or subject to consensus view. Yet your ruling planet retrograde here suggests strongly that you know what others do not — even, and especially, if you don’t agree with their views. Beware of death threats in any form. Beware of compromises you are made to make based on a death threat — of any kind, no matter how seemingly meek or polite. Now is the time to depend on your fierce independence, and your rebellious streak. No matter what anyone else says or does, you must stand up to the challenges of your life and your journey through whatever cosmos you inhabit. In the end, you answer to yourself and your higher power. And that is nobody’s business but yours.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — With Jupiter now transiting your opposite sign Pisces, you may find that others have more to offer you than they have any time recently. You may also discover that for some reason, you feel less isolated than you have in the past couple of years. It’s like an empty space you didn’t understand and possibly did not even notice suddenly has some presence and some substance for you, or a clearer reflection than the ones you’ve been seeing. However, be aware that you may be looking into a magnifying mirror. You may see apparent faults in yourself and in others that you may not have noticed before. You may be gazing into a kind of crystal ball that amplifies your sense of consequence in your dealings with others. There may be some question of who is supposed to have ownership of what matters. I suggest you not take this too seriously, but rather be patient and give yourself time to observe and consider before you judge or make any irreversible decisions. A diversity of factors warn that you may not be correct in your assessments, or that your analysis needs to be refined and considered more thoughtfully. Your primary spiritual mission at this time in your life is to know where other people end and where you begin; where you end and where others begin. This goes for both individuals and groups, across a wide diversity of situations in your life. Your tendency is to get lost in people, which includes forming dependencies that you ultimately decide you must get out of. Your goal is not so much radical independence but rather healthy interdependence. We are all in this together, though we are all distinct beings. It is essential that you recognize your own existence as a thing apart in all the world, before you decide you are “one with everything.”
