An Overview of Astrology

Astrology has a fascinating history. The earliest recorded interpretations of astrology were found on from 1645-1625 BC. The earliest known horoscope dates back to 410 BC.

Anyone can gain greater personal understanding with astrology since it affects our lives just as the moon influences the tides. Astrology provides you tools that can help you make the best and most informed decisions. It is like a map for your soul that provides you with insights into the future, and reveals the tendencies, quirks, and truth about human nature, relationships, career choices and the world at large. Astrology may be used as a guide for daily living, as well as for forecasting and predictions.

Astrology is a complex system that dates back to the third Millennium B.C. It is based on celestial observations and correlating events. Astrology helped lay the foundation for the development of astronomy. It has influenced belief systems and even entire cultures. The many components of astrology, such as signs, planets and aspects, are what make it a complex system. It can be rather confusing until you begin to understand the basics. The many components are considered when forming accurate readings of astrological transitions and how they relate to each individual. The more you learn, the better you’ll be able to apply astrology’s wisdom to your own life.

For starters, your birth chart is created for the precise moment that you were born. At that time, each planet (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto), the Sun and the Moon were in measurable positions in the sky that is unique to your individual birth chart. Your birth chart reveals important insights about your personality, career choices, romantic potential, and much more.

The Planets this Week: February 12 - 18, 2017

Find out what’s in store with the planets this week. We have a fairly quiet week, astrologically speaking. The headline of the week is the Sun moving into Pisces on Saturday where it will stay until March 20th.

During the Sun’s transit in Pisces, and depending on how it affects your birth chart, you may find yourself longing to escape from your everyday reality. You’re more sensitive now, and might feel overwhelmed by the people and responsibilities of daily life. You may also feel a longing to connect more with your inner world and spiritual life, rather than paying so much attention to the material world.

Look for positive ways to transcend the ordinary, like creative expression, meditation, yoga and other spiritual practices. This could be a great time to go on a retreat, or otherwise withdraw from socializing and busyness. If you don’t have a positive outlet for escape, you might be tempted to fall into the more negative expression of Pisces and be prone to addictions, illusions or avoidance.

Your imagination is strong now, and can be put to use in making music, painting, dancing, or writing poetry or fiction. You could also let yourself simply daydream about your future, and come up with a new vision for your ideal life. Dreams may be more active than usual, and paying attention to messages from your dreams can reveal profound guidance from your subconscious.

You could be a real softie now, easily brought to tears by a sad movie or even a sentimental TV commercial. Honor your increased sensitivity by purifying your body, your environment and your relationships. Take extra alone time to rest and recover when it all feels like too much.

Find out what’s in store with the planets this week. The big news of the week is the Lunar Eclipse in Leo. During the Leo Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, creative endeavors really begin to take shape. Many of us will have a receptive audience. Overall, people’s moods are uplifted with Leo’s jovial spirit. Feeling particularly passionate about experiencing life to the fullest, many of us will have a full appreciation for the splendors of the natural world.

On Sunday, Jupiter, planet of luck and good fortune turns retrograde. Jupiter has been travelling through Libra since September 2016, and its tour of this gentle sign will last over a year, until October 2017. Commonly referred to as the Planet of Luck, Jupiter is also called the Planet of Philosophy due to its intellectually explorative nature. Its yearlong transit through diplomatic Libra expands our natural curiosity about the world along with our interest in connecting with people of different cultures and philosophies.

On Tuesday, communication planet Mercury moves into Aquarius where it will stay until February 25th. While Mercury is in Aquarius, and depending on how this transit affects your natal chart, your brain could be buzzing with inventive ideas. You may find yourself thinking outside the box, with sudden flashes of inspiration that open your mind to unusual and unexpected possibilities. You might even have trouble sleeping at night as the mental gears tirelessly turn.

Also, this week, the brilliant Sun is forming positive aspects to both Uranus and Jupiter. People are more open-minded than usual, curious and interested in change and reform. Progress is highlighted and plans are made. Tolerance and generosity are at a peak now, so take advantage by donating time or money to a charitable organization of your choice.

Find out how the planets will be affecting you this week with your host and astrologer Kelli Fox. The astro headline of the week is Venus moving into Aries on Friday where it will be until April 2nd. It turns retrograde on March 4th and then finally direct April 15th.

While Venus is in Aries, and depending on how this influence affects your birth chart, your love life could be quite exciting! You might find yourself being bolder than usual, taking risks and acting on your ardent impulses. Romance can be steamy and you’re open to experimentation — just watch out for getting carried away by your passions and be sure to take care of yourself.

If you’re single, this is an ideal transit for initiating new relationships, and you’ve got the confidence to go after what you want. Of course, what you want could change from moment to moment. The hunt might be what thrills you most right now, while the everyday work of relationship could feel stifling. If you’re in a partnership, break up familiar routines with an infusion of novelty — surprise your sweetie by taking him or her on an unexpected outing, wearing a sexy new outfit, or trying an innovative approach to lovemaking.

You might find yourself wanting to assert your independence now, and getting in touch with your own needs and desires, separate from your partner. Clinginess is a definite turn-off. Giving yourself space to explore your passions is a way to recharge the vitality in your relationship.

Be aware of the tendency toward impulse spending under this transit — you want what you want when you want it! A little patience and prudence could be in order.

Find out how the planets will be affecting you this week with your host and astrologer Kelli Fox. It’s a fairly quiet week, astrologically speaking. The Sun moves into Aquarius where it will stay until February 18th.

Under the influence of the Sun in Aquarius, and depending on how it interacts with the planets in your chart, you may find yourself wanting to be different from everyone else. While you might be drawn to social events and group activities, you’re not interested in fitting in, but in distinguishing yourself as an individual. You might be feeling rebellious, and longing to break free from old molds and others’ expectations.

Your attention turns toward the future — what’s your long-term vision? What are your hopes and wishes? Let yourself dream big, and be sure to attend events where you might meet people who can help you reach your goals. Networking is favorable for these four weeks, and the synchronicity factor — chance meetings with the right person at the right time — is heightened.

Getting involved in a group or organization that reflects your passions is another great way to make connections with helpful people. You could feel inspired to get involved in a volunteer project or humanitarian cause. Team projects, especially those that are working toward a higher ideal, are especially satisfying.

Aquarius is the sign of technology and innovation, and this is a time when you can find creative solutions to old problems. Your mind is super-strong now, but you might have a tendency to get overly attached to your ideas and opinions. If you can stay mentally flexible and open to other points of view, you can make better progress than by thinking you have all the answers.

Find out how the planets will be affecting you this week with your host and astrologer Kelli Fox.

We have a very intense Full Moon in Cancer on Thursday. This is not an ordinarily intense Full Moon but a supercharged one! With Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto making challenging connections we had better hang onto our hats!

Usually during the Cancer Full Moon, you can develop a warmer, more loving spirit in your home and with people you’re close to. You may feel a sense of contentment with the quality of people you have in your life. With the t-square to Jupiter confidence, energy, bounce — these qualities are evident everywhere this week, probably to excess. In fact, the big problem is one of inflation. We just don’t know when enough is enough. Be very careful not to overeat, overreach or be too self-indulgent. The possibility is high that lots of folks will take on too many projects or too much work, in a brief moment of I-can-do-anything mentality.

The Full Moon also forms a tsquare to Uranus so there will be a strong, unpredictable energy. People will feel like doing what they want, and forget the consequences. Willful behavior is certain to be on display somewhere nearby. Defiance and indiscretion, too. Disruptions to the daily routine are likely and no one will have the patience to deal with them.

With the conjunction and opposition to Pluto this Full Moon promises complex power issues as long-hidden secrets and other information bubble to the surface. Our focus and passions are much more laser-like than usual. We go for the burn, but if we’re too dogmatic, forceful or stubborn, we can easily burn out. It’s so tempting to look around with a critical eye and see what everyone else is doing wrong, but remember, a person can only change themselves and no one else.

Get ready for quite the exciting year! 2017 promises pizzazz for every sign in the zodiac. This will be part one of a two part series. In this show, Astrologer and host Kelli Fox will give and overview of the year ahead. In next week’s show she will explain what each sign can expect from 2017.

The fun starts February 10, when a Lunar Eclipse illuminates ardent Leo. Say yes to that glam party or outing—it could kick off social whirlwind. You might also focus more on intimate matters, including your love life or a creative pursuit that’s close to your heart. Two weeks later, on February 26, a Solar Eclipse energizes psychic Pisces. If your gut is communicating something, listen up. The best decisions will be based on intuition. Sticking stubbornly to conventional wisdom could make you miss an important opportunity.

The next eclipses occur in August, the first a Lunar Eclipse on the 7th in unique Aquarius. You might reconnect with a group of old friends or rock a team project. Two weeks later on August 21, the Solar Eclipse in affectionate Leo could bring a pregnancy or engagement announcement. Time to celebrate!

Mercury, the planet of communication, will be retrograde four times in 2017. Mercury Retrograde periods can be a bummer. The first phase ends January 8, concluding the period that began in December 2016; the second is from April 9 through May 3; the third runs from August 12 until September 5; and the final phase is December 2 until the 22nd. Interrupted plans and communication snags are inevitable, so keep your cool.

Venus, the planet of love, will also be retrograde between March 4 and April 15. For anyone going through a tough time with their sweetheart, this is a great time to listen closely to your partner and offer more caring support. Of course, it takes two to tango. To make the most of this harmonious energy, both partners have to be fully committed to a kinder and gentler relationship.

The Planets this week. What do the planets have in store for you this week? We have a busy week! The astro headline is that on Monday, Mercury will turn retrograde and warrior planet Mars moves into Pisces. On Wednesday the Sun moves into Capricorn which coincides with the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and the Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere. On Saturday we have an unusual Saturn trine Uranus aspect which means the old guard and the new are aligned.

Communication planet Mercury will be retrograde until January 8. It is a phenomenon that has worked its way into mass consciousness. The moment a communication snafu occurs, folks blame Mercury Retrograde! Everyone knows that Mercury Retrograde is a great time to do things that start with ‘re’: repair, reduce, reconsider, recreate.

If you can avoid signing a contract during Mercury Retrograde, fine. If not, go through it carefully a couple of times and get help if you need it. Try not to buy electronic equipment during this period, or travel, because delays and snafus seem to abound.

Warrior planet Mars moves into Pisces where it will stay until January 27th. Under this influence we could be more sensitive than we realize, and many of us may notice that our physical energy has higher peaks and lower valleys than usual. Napping will be a very good thing to do and we may need more sleep than we normally do.

While the Sun is in Capricorn we may feel driven to succeed. We may work long hours to achieve our goals and bring long-term projects to completion. There might not be much time for a personal life. We should try not to sacrifice too much and make sure that what we’re working for is our own definition of success, and not someone else’s.

What do the planets have in store for you this week? The planetary influence this week is a Full Moon in Gemini which is forming a Grand Trine with Mars and Jupiter as well as trines to the Sun from Saturn and Uranus.

During the Gemini Full Moon, you may be pleasantly surprised by the progress you are making with the project you initiated during the New Moon. Additional insights can make your endeavor seem even more worthwhile, once you incorporate them. You’ll have a sense of accomplishment once you are able to share what you’ve learned with others. No doubt, people will be impressed by what you tell them. Your quest for knowledge can be personally fulfilling once the answers come to you, and you get a chance to show off just a little.

You can be rather talkative and very social, full of wit and charm. Make sure that you spend time in the company of others, for your astute opinions should not go unexpressed. You appreciate your independence more fully during this time.

It would be better to schedule activities with friends instead of romantic dates because you may not feel particularly open to the burdens that love relationships can sometimes entail. You may feel the most happy with an excellent book in front of your face. You may also take this time to consider ways to rein in runaway thoughts and nervous tension if you are prone to them. Give up a bad mental habit as the moon begins to wane.
