Aries (March 20-April 19) — Have you ever had the experience of starting to feel good, and then you get nervous and feel unstable, like relaxing is inviting a disaster? If you start to get that sensation, now is the perfect time to work with it and see what’s lurking beneath it. There are a few different possibilities, including having inherited a guilt trip from various ancestors. At the root of most such emotional responses is the notion that having fun will land you in hell. You might think that’s ridiculous if you have not had a strict religious upbringing, though this influence finds its way into every cell like the pervasive toxin that it is. In Western culture, this translates approximately to: the only safe fun costs money (buying an indulgence). This is under the general heading of pleasure anxiety. You may experience this, among other places, where emotional experiences meet sexual ones. There is something else as well: your sense of belonging. This relates to family, and intimate relationships. The suggestion from Chiron in your sign is practice feeling accepted for who you are — including and especially your sexual orientation and relationship preferences. This sense of acceptance comes from you, not from others.
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) — Your financial situation is better than you think. However, I would still suggest a thorough overview of your spending habits, sources of income, and your assets. There is an element to financial issues that is rarely spoken of, which is getting high on the dramas that the ups, downs and other scenarios bring. What you are seeking is a steady ride, and also growth potential. To create that, you will need to be a student of your own patterns. It is arguable that Taurus is one of the most frugal signs, though you might ask yourself if this works for you, if you take it too far, and if you could do better investing a little more in yourself. The spiritual element of this equation is to work with the seemingly elusive and unknown thing about yourself that you are often chasing. There is perhaps some romance in being a mystery to yourself, but is it really true? Pay attention to your motives, by which I mean what motivates you. Notice what gets you to take action, whether that means speaking, making a decision or spending money. Become familiar with the true meaning of your yes and your no.
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.
2021-22 Taurus Astrology Studio: How to Grow, Change, and Become
Gemini (May 20-June 21) — Your life is surging ahead at an unusual pace. The question is, what direction are you headed? I suggest you resist any temptation to leap in the direction of what seems like forward. You are under the simultaneous influence of an eclipse of the Sun and Mercury retrograde in your sign. Your ideas about your reality will need some time to develop, as certain previously concealed facts come to light over the next two weeks. However, you may also feel the tug of destiny or find yourself with some kind of offer that seems too interesting to turn down. In such a moment you will need to go on pure intuition, because you’re unlikely to have any factual basis on which to ground your decision. Whether you make a move or hold, what is changing is your relationship to the past and the power that history has seemed to hold over you. If you want to thread the needle, you might ask this question: what would it mean to stand in your sexual power? By that I mean, how would it feel if you were to say yes when you wanted to say yes? How would you feel if no other person or their seeming point of view could sway your choices? What if it was all up to you?
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.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Study what is old. Go through the attic, the basement, the drawers, the old photos and the diaries. Clues will be forthcoming if you do. There are mysteries to be solved in looking through the trash, and surprising clues in antique shops, and dusty salvage stores (places like this, which is more chaotic than the photos make it seem) that are like museums of practical history. Get near that old stuff and handle it; feel it; smell it. Imagine where it’s been and what it meant to those who owned it in the past. Look around both for what is familiar and unfamiliar, and pay attention to your many responses. Though it may seem like an odd thing to propose, this is first-rate spiritual seeking for you, under the influence of the current astrology. The past is bubbling up with its wisdom, its cautions and its messages. You will get a sense of how much has changed, and how little as well. Feel the hopes and dreams of your predecessors, as told in both physical objects and recorded history — ledger books and albums, especially if you did not own them. The eclipse in Gemini is opening up a dimension of universal truth that has much to offer you at this time in your life.
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.

Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — You may choose to assert yourself publicly, which will be one way to find out if you are right or wrong. You can do a real-time experiment, say something you’re unsure of, and then watch what happens. However, I would propose that your current drives and impulses are more driven by curiosity than the need to prove something. If you stick with that drive to know and understand, you will have more fun, and not take any risks before you’re ready to do so. You are onto something real, though that this is happening during Mercury retrograde and in the presence of an eclipse tells you one thing: there is plenty that is cloaked, veiled and waiting to emerge. Therefore, the less you commit to before that happens, the better off you will be. It is almost always productive to put your energy into wanting to know more. The good thing here is that you don’t need to push, to dig, or to argue. You are personally a kind of probe into reality and all you need to do is pay attention to what your senses and your body are telling you. Take it slowly. A door is opening now, and rather than closing, it will continue to swing wider and allow in as much information as you don’t resist or judge.
Leo is THE sign of human vitality and in many respects the source of strength, light and creation. Tap into that radiant force. Get your reading by Eric Francis.
2020-21 Leo Astrology Studio: Notes on Love and Courage
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — You seem to have big professional plans, though now is probably not the time to act. You may feel under pressure to do so, and that should be especially encouraging of interposing a little delay in taking action. What you will benefit from doing is noticing your options and your choices, in one particular variety. Virgo is famous for pursuing two or more career paths at once. They can sometimes seem to have nothing whatsoever to do with one another. People under this influence will assure you there is no relationship between the two things they are good at and invest their lives in. However, the thing to look for are the opportunities and the openings where you can express all of your talents and all of your assets. You want to be in the place where you can be your whole self, and practice your primary spiritual exercise in this lifetime: personal integration. Mercury retrograde is encouraging you to see your abilities, talents, assets, and management skills in a whole different way. An eclipse in this same angle of your chart is saying, look for the potential that you have never seen before.
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.

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — People are limited by their beliefs. That is to say, most of the time, we do not experience things that we do not previously deem possible. Occasionally this happens. You might call it a miracle, or it might be a true learning experience of expanding your potential through direct and unexpected experience. Yet generally, belief is the thing that stands between you and all the potential in the universe. This week, practice identifying beliefs that you want to change. Notice the limits you place on yourself, particularly in two areas: your language, and what you see as your options. Revise your choice of words to facilitate greater possibilities. Replace “impossible” with “unusual” as a small step. Substitute “rarely” or “occasionally” for “never.” This may seem like magical thinking, though what it’s doing is working with the quality of thought that sets limits on your experiences, by indirectly controlling your beliefs. This week’s solar eclipse in Gemini comes with the expressed message of why you will benefit from opening your mind, which implies noticing where you are stuck. This is good practice. Set some new habits now, and they will stick.

2020-21 Libra Astrology Studio: Notes to Myself
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — If you have ever felt destined to accomplish great things, take that out for a ride this week. You are in a excellent place to exceed any previous potential, or idea about what might have limited you. However, there is a catch, which is you must take the bold step of seeing your destiny as being separate from that of anyone else with whom you are intimately connected. This does not mean the relationship will not last into the future. But it cannot be a contractual arrangement to limit yourself. Over and over again in the course of doing astrological counseling with clients around the world, I have seen this play out: relationships acting as contractual agreements to not grow. There are many seeming motives for this state of affairs, and they include wanting to avoid jealousy, and change seeming to threaten to the status quo of the relationship. Sometimes one person is not “allowed” to exceed the self-worth of the other. Step away from any such arrangements, beliefs, or ideas. Cease to identify with those who practice self-limiting beliefs, and stand at your full stature.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — It is time to come to terms with the reality of a relationship situation. This includes figuring out how you got to the place you are right now. In truth, it’s not so bad. There is still plenty of potential to the relationship, if you are willing to let go of your notions of what form it should take, or should have taken. Has it occurred to you that your expectations and projections onto the situation are getting you less than you deserve, need or desire? Has it occurred to you that there is something greater that you can allow to happen by not placing so much emphasis on your position? The past five or six weeks have arrived with many emotional highs, lows, twists and turns. Some days you seem to have everything and other days you seem to be losing everything. Neither of these is true, though it will help if you step back from the drama and start with the specific ways you know you are safe and held gently by the universe. If you want something better, it will help if you want that thing for yourself, not for yourself and someone else. Yet once you are there, where you are is yours to share.
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
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — You need a whole new concept of “health” and of “wellness.” You now have the occasion to think that through, and to enact decisions you made long ago that you put off for some other time. That time has arrived, and you are in an excellent place to enact your values and your choices in real and meaningful ways. You may feel like you’re under some pressure to do so, and if so, this is coming from a deep place. You are trying to resolve a situation where your values do not seem to reconcile. You can live like that for a while, though it’s like standing at the branching of the road and trying to decide which path to take. You can stay there for a while, but not forever. It may be easier to take the path that seems familiar, though I suspect you know that the unfamiliar and more challenging route is the one you need to take. In all ways, the time has come to point yourself to the future, though first you must find yourself in the present and account for exactly where you are. How you got here matters less. Knowing your location in time, space and personal history is essential.
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.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You are in possession of considerable creative potential. The thing about tapping into it, or activating it, or expressing it, is that you can release hidden karma. For example, you finally get around to beginning a long-planned project and suddenly an obstacle arises, even several of them. And then you get distracted and have to address those situations first. Too often, the solution is to avoid doing anything that is too much fun, or which seems too free or creative. Though this connection is unproven by empirical science and rarely — if ever — written about, I suggest you work with this property if you happen to experience it in the coming week or two. You are opening a door to your manifesting power, and soon after, you may meet some resistance, an obstacle or interference. It’s crucial that you not take this personally, and allow yourself a measure of uncertainty about where it’s coming from. Sincerely attempt that much, even as a token gesture, as a test of your powers of observation and guiding your belief. You will find more influence over the flow of not just your art, your music, or your writing, but also your life.
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
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Find reasons to appreciate where you are, both geographically and domestically, because you’re likely to be here for a while longer. If you cannot go far, take the opportunity to go deep: to see your home and your surroundings as a new place, no matter how familiar they may be. This is a poetic exercise and a pragmatic one: surprises and discoveries await you, close to where you are. I would repeat my suggestion to get a handle on your living space, in terms of cleaning, organizing and discarding or passing forward what you do not need. You might try doing some reorientation of your home: change the purpose of a room, rearrange the furnishings, move your desk to another location — anything to shake up the energy and see things from a new point of view. Pay special attention to the kitchen and bathroom, and other places that make your space distinctly personal. There will be some magic in doing this: an energy effect associated with the breaking of stuck patterns. You need this, and will benefit from it. Keep things moving. The past year has been a drag. Cut the cords and tethers.
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.
