Aries (March 20-April 19) — It will be risky to make decisions based on emotional impulse. The first step toward preventing that is knowing when you feel that surge of energy that bypasses your intelligence and drives your mind unconsciously. Notice surges of sensation and feeling that seem to come out of nowhere. Some internal movements may be so abrupt as to seem like they are assaulting you. It’s crucial that you experience these without allowing them to drive your choices, or how you treat others. It is not easy to release attachments to ‘the passions’, whether this be sex drive, jealousy, insecurity, anger, or any other impulse. Notice and observe these things rather than allowing them to push you around. It is true that this will require the full use of your spiritual and psychological training — that is what it was for. That’s why you went through the trouble of your studies, of therapy, of healing and of doing what you can to make peace with your family. Most of the emotional currents you will feel are artifacts of the past. They are the remnants of what is no longer valid or relevant today. If you act on these things, you are reacting to circumstances that no longer exist. Your task now is to find your way to the present.

Self-assertive, sometimes bold, Aries is always up for an adventure. A new adventure awaits — order your affordable reading by Eric Francis today.

Taurus (April 19-May 20) — You have two distinct opinions about yourself. Often they compete with one another and this is not easy; most of the time, they feel equally valid. This can create a situation where you are at odds with yourself, even so far as being in competition with yourself. The result is you are delayed, and making choices can be painful because you have not established the basis for choosing. The consciousness of Taurus is often dominated by a kind of endless internal debate. This includes abstractions such as whether you’re a good person or not, whether to regret your past, and whether you should offer yourself to the world in the way you often feel motivated to. The central theme of your chart comes down to the question: what do you have to give? And one answer to that question is, the more you give, the more you have, and the more you have to give. This is counter to the logic of the world, where the more you give, the less you have. Yet you have the opportunity to allow a kind of higher law to impart itself in your consciousness. Over the next few weeks, you may be conducting a profound review of why your prior approaches did not work as well as you wanted. It is safe to ask the difficult questions, and not rush to answer them in a definitive way.

Calm, collected and attractive on the outside, raging like a tempest on the inside, Taurus is the blacksmith shop of the soul. Forge your path with this reading.

Hello Gemini Sun and rising! Click on your sign to get your 2021 annual reading.

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — We think of our planet as the dimension of struggle, sorrow and pain. Here, spiritual seekers are weary pilgrims searching for truth and refuge. This need not be. Some day we may live in a world that welcomes a new Humanity. It is written in an ancient book that when this happens, our planet will be distinguished by a quality and by an aura of calm potency; of fertile potential; and as a place where it is safe to express your creativity. What will it take to get there? That is the important question, because if we can identify that, we can begin to conduct ourselves in accordance with that Way or approach, and shorten the time and effort needed to cross the distance. Ultimately, this involves how we make decisions. Everything comes down to choosing. The deeper variable is the basis for doing so, and that basis will change how your options look, and to a large extent determine what you see as possible and how you see it. Here is an esoteric formula. There is a relationship between your intelligence and your adaptability. Your ability to access your full knowledge, brilliance, and potentially your streak of genius is about being flexible. Among many other things, learning is impossible without this quality.

Geminis ask a heck of a lot of questions, and much of what you are curious about is yourself. Find some answers in your affordable reading by Eric Francis.

Hello Cancer Sun and rising! Click on your sign to get your 2021 annual reading.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — It is difficult to not be angry in this world, and at this world. At times it seems like a giant trap for emotional struggle and rage. Yet we know this is leading us nowhere as individuals and as a society. Here is the thing, well, two things, to remember for the next month. One is that you are a living example of whatever you embody. Your words matter far less than your actions, and this includes how you feel. So you must use all your knowledge, wisdom and power, and do what you can to feel good. Second is that you are entering a kind of blind spot, which is the Sun’s passage through Gemini, your 12th place (house, solar house, or whole-sign house). If you perceive this blind spot from the outside, you will be caught short of the information and the perspective that you need. If you perceive it from within yourself, you will have access to a universe of information, wisdom, and perspective. This will all proceed from the inside out. You will make a discovery about your inner world, which will cascade into your personal world, which will have relevance in a much wider field of influence. The Sun’s journey through Gemini for the next four weeks, combined with Mercury retrograde in that sign, signals the time to go inward, in preparation for moving outward in a whole new way.

Nurturing, loving, devoted, cuddly, milky and self-centered, Cancer has it all. You can even have instant access to your reading when you purchase today.

2020-21 Cancer Astrology Studio: I Feel, Therefore I Am

Hello Leo Sun and rising! Click on your sign to get your 2021 annual reading.

Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — You will need to work with your very best public relations skills for the next few weeks. The good thing is, you have them. So this is a matter of keeping focus and remembering that there are no private thoughts on the internet. Invest your energy in doing something useful for the people around you. You will be in the perfect position to assist people with a wide diversity of problems they need to solve. If you find yourself being the local concierge, embrace the task warmly. This will place you in a position to create solutions that work for everyone — whomever is helping, the person being assisted, and you as the broker of assistance. If you’re in business in any form (nearly everyone is these days), you want to be the person with the magic Rolodex who always knows how to find the person that people need. But set a high standard: only connect people with those you trust and are willing to vouch for. In this and every other way, from now through late June is a time of making mysterious connections and the right friends, and of finding your way into social circles that will more than compensate for the various disasters of the past 14 months.

Leo is THE sign of human vitality and in many respects the source of strength, light and creation. How’s this for a bright idea: get your reading by Eric Francis!

2020-21 Leo Astrology Studio: Notes on Love and Courage

Hello Virgo Sun and rising! Click on your sign to get your 2021 annual reading.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — It’s a good thing your tendency is to work several career tracks at once, because it’s come in handy in our moment of economic upheaval. Adaptability is everything, though for that to work it will help if you give up some of your attachments, and dial back your need to control all of the specifics. Where you want to be involved is in important decisions, particularly where mission, purpose and money are concerned. Then, find one or two reliable people to whom you can delegate any task that cannot be done by you alone. You seem to be onto something big, or at least, something genuinely worth doing and developing. You will know which project or line of thought I’m talking about because it uses the full range of your abilities, even weird stuff you learned temping 25 years ago and stuff your uncle taught you about how to fix the furnace. Your assignment is to assemble all of your gifts, abilities and talents, especially your wits and your charm, and put them to one excellent purpose. Your ruling planet Mercury is about to go retrograde, so make sure you spend some hours each day tidying up the past. And while you’re doing that, look for your distinct opening and your opportunity.

As a Virgo, it’s your role to make the world a better place: to offer, if not solace, then solutions. Find both for yourself when you purchase your reading.

2020-21 Virgo Astrology Studio: I touch the Earth. The Earth touches me.

Hello Libra Sun and rising! Click on your sign to get your 2021 annual reading.

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — We live in a big world, if you have an open mind. We live in a very small and confined world if you have a narrow mind, and do not seek to broaden your view. I suggest you stretch yourself and flirt with what is possible, or rather, with what you want, and imagine it’s possible. You seem to be bogged in a commitment that is not working for you, which means it’s not working that well for anyone. It can work a lot better, whatever it is, though it’s essential that you follow the inspirational and visionary aspect of things, rather than the duty and responsibility side. That is a bog; it’s about Neptune in your 6th house (which has been in place for a long time, but is taking some big transits now). You will get more done if you do what inspires you. Yet what is most beautifully highlighted in your chart is creating a vision for the future: sensing your mission, or noticing what you do that works for you and maybe even for others, and developing that. There’s that question people doing job interviews are supposed to ask, which always bristled me, but I’ll ask: where do you see yourself in five years?

Aleister Crowley said that the essence of the sign Libra is the drive for justice. Tap into your essence with this reading, and bring balance to your world.

2020-21 Libra Astrology Studio: Notes to Myself

Hello Scorpio Sun and rising! Click on your sign to get your 2021 annual reading.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — To actually do anything and to feel good doing it requires passion. That means feeling, by which I mean the full range of human emotions: the emotions that make us human. Your ruling planet Mars is making its way through the sensitive and potent sign Cancer. The more ordinary interpretations of that combination say it calls forth a deeply personal set of responses to your environment. This includes much that cannot be spoken, or easily put into words. If we consider this through the filter of more spiritually-oriented astrology, there is something about individuating, as if you are emerging from the primal sea and asserting your individual will. This is conditioned by the collective quality of the sign Cancer, so your feelings are set within a context. Yet there is that moment where you break free and determine that you must do the thing you feel called to do, in the way you feel called to do it. This is truly a spiritual quest, and a kind of an initiation. With Mars, the question always needs to be: what do you do with your power? And, how consciously do you focus your intentions? Are you honest about the outcome you want? Try it — you’ll like it.

Scorpio is an odd hybrid, both a product — and an instigator — of evolution. Purchase your latest reading to delve deeper into the mystery of yourself.

Hello Sagittarius Sun and rising! Click on your sign to get your 2021 annual reading.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — Jupiter is still freshly arrived in Pisces, one of the two signs that it rules: yours being the other. To my perception, Sagittarius and Pisces are two versions of the same story, set in different contexts, with a different vibration. Yet both address the fundamental matters of creation, and of the relationship between human consciousness and prime source, the cosmos or God (however you choose to consider it). What Pisces does for you is give you relief from your concepts and ideas, and immerses you in the liquid reality of what you so often consider. It happens that this pool is where your roots reach for sustenance. However, you tend to get preoccupied either in the affairs of the world or your resistance to attending to them, and you miss the deeper layer. Yet then there are the times when it comes flooding in. Now may be one of them. Though you may have the instinct that all that water will extinguish your fire, we are not talking about ordinary elements here. Follow Jupiter down to your depths. Ask yourself whether life emerged from the sea, or sought refuge there. Draw on the trace elements and feed your cosmic fire.

Sagittarius, yours is the sign of the quest, the far away and far-out. Purchase your reading today and continue your adventure with the stars as your guide.

2020-21 Sagittarius Astrology Studio: Live from the Galactic Center

Hello Capricorn Sun and rising! Click on your sign to get your 2021 annual reading.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — For the next month, I want to propose an exercise of honest writing. This is not necessarily for anyone else to read, though times have changed, and now anything typed into a computing device of any kind is subject to being published and read. So you might want to stick to a notebook to enhance your sense of privacy and remind yourself that you are entitled to your own thoughts and your own views without being subject to anyone’s review. Now here is the assignment. Tell yourself a story: perhaps about something that is bothering you, or an event when you were younger: but something real. Then consider what you’ve written, and write it again the next day, or a couple of days later (but not longer) and tell yourself the story again, filling in details. Do that two or three more times, with the goal of being more honest and realer with yourself each time. If you enjoy, appreciate or otherwise see the value in doing this, keep going. What you want to write is what makes you squirm a little. What might feel a little dangerous and what you certainly would not want others to know. These things, you must know about yourself.

We depend upon Capricorn to hold things stable. But you’re not as boring as you like people to think you are. Unearth your inner revolutionary with this reading.

2021 Capricorn Astrology Studio: One Night Only Kala Sarpa Yoga

Hello Aquarius Sun and rising! Click on your sign to get your 2021 annual reading.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — The astrology is perfect for you to wake up to a new feeling of self-respect and belonging on the planet. You will recognize this because it will have a calming effect on you. You will feel more settled into your skin and your psyche. This is unusual; it’s almost a missing experience, as you tend to be such a live wire. Yet Saturn is in all ways encouraging you to slow down, and to take seriously the process of change that has entered your life at this time. In the style of Saturn, progress is methodical, careful, sincere and thorough. That does not happen fast. Yet this week’s focus is Jupiter in Pisces, your 2nd place (house, solar house, whole sign house) of self-value and worthiness; which will be met Thursday by the Sun entering your fellow air sign Gemini. This is a gentle prod to relax a little and drop into the deeper reality of your being. You may have concerns related to the past and the future; you may feel driven to accomplish something. Yet you can afford to take an “all in good time” approach. What you need to accomplish is feeling good. That will lead to many other possibilities opening up, mainly because you will notice them due to the more suitable vibrational match.

You’re not after progress for its own sake; Aquarius is the discriminating embracer of innovation that works. Get your reading and be brilliant.

2021-22 Aquarius Astrology Studio: A Reading For Our Moment

Hello Pisces Sun and rising! Click on your sign to get your 2021 annual reading.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — The Sun entering your fellow mutable sign Gemini is designed to serve as a grounding influence. This is about taking care of yourself, your home and your family, even if that is mostly plants and/or critters. But mostly yourself. Take the time to organize and clean: you do like things tidy, despite the reputation of Pisces for being unkempt. This is a domestic exercise but it’s also a spiritual one, like tending the ashram. That is how to think of your home. You may not recognize it, though you are living in another reality than the one you’ve only recently inhabited (perhaps for a very long time). The change is your sense of your own presence in the world; your own being; and your ability to work with your environment in a new way. The Sun’s ingress into Gemini will enhance that, and do wonders for your sense of security and confidence. Spread out and take up some more space, particularly within yourself and your most immediate surroundings. Claim more of your time. And resolve, choice by choice, not to stress over what you cannot immediately control. This will help you make relevant decisions, and to feel the strength that choosing wisely offers to you.

The hidden realm is vitally important to Pisces: in a sense it is your home. Find your way back home, guided by your latest reading.
