Cosmic Forecast, Jan. 26-Feb. 1

Welcome into the Year of the Dragon. In our culture, dragons are subdued by swords. In other cultures, including the Mayan, dragons are tricked into compliance. Dragons represent the forces of nature. Let’s explore this year dramatically and dynamically, like a dragon. I am a high priest of nature, servant of the sun, and guardian of the twilight well. “May you never thirst.” Check out your Year of the Dragon in our expanded 2012 Preview at

k AQUARIUS (1.21-2.19)  Expected to unexpectedly start falling in love around February 9th, when Venus conjuncts your esoteric ruler, the planet Uranus, at 2 degrees in Aries. Could be someone (or something) born around late March. That’s when you’ll know. It’s more fun being in love than not, right? Mercury just entered your sign, offering you some inventive insight. Use it before you lose it around Valentine’s Day (as Mercury moves into Pisces), and see what your new love has to say.

l PISCES (2.20-3.20)  Your private little lake full of dreams flows forward into the ocean of the subconscious. Your mystical ruler Neptune moves into Pisces in about a week (when next we speak), welcoming you into the BIG OCEAN. Neptune’s there for the duration, ’til January 2026. You’ll have a whale of a tail when your immense voyage be over. Write your story. Become famous and study illusion.

a ARIES (3.21-4.20)  You just forgot something, didn’t you? Get used to it. Your ruler Mars just moved retrograde at 23 degrees Virgo ’til mid-April. You can only forget something when/after you should have remembered. Crazy, huh? Get used to it. Details, details, details… Not your best suit.

b TAURUS (4.21-5.20)  Why the tears? What are your fears? Ahhh, the years. You’ve got ’til June to expand and experience the/this luck manifesting all around you. The same planet that rules generosity (Jupiter) rules luck. The more generous you become, the more luck will try to find you. Yeah, I didn’t think you’d figure that out, right away. What do you think that means about your main concern (you!)?

c GEMINI (5.21-6.21)  Mercury just entered the sign of its exaltation, Aquarius. Electricity, invention, the occult, intuition, science, astrology, Bucky Fuller and Nicola Tesla; feast your mind on these teachings and teachers and their beauty and genius in its many forms.

d CANCER (6.22-7.22)  The weight of this last Capricorn transit, from December 23rd ’til January 20th, still haunts you even though it’s over. The unexpected has more power after more static transits of predictability. Find your shred and perfect it.

e LEO (7.23-8.22)  Hide until the Fool Moon in your sign on February 7th. Hide at home, and — whether you’re male or female — learn to trust a woman this next week. ’Til next we speak…

f VIRGO (8.23-9.22)  Please read Gemini. Mars just moved retrograde at 23 degrees Virgo. This will/could affect mid-September born Virgos with violence, arguments, mechanical problems and irritation with others. You must be careful not to become your own worst enemy. Temper, temper, temper! Who’s the Aries?

g LIBRA (9.23-10.22)  Ahhh… Love is here today. Venus is exalted in Pisces ’til the Full Moon in Leo on February 7th. Use it before you lose it. After filling yourself with the bounty and beauty of love, you will be invited to truly look at yourself by/on Valentine’s Day. You’ll have to truly love yourself before you can honestly love another. Then, love will be here to stay.

h SCORPIO (10.23-11.22)  Your 3rd eye calls upon/to you. There’s a price to pay for every shaman on the block. When your 3rd eye itches, don’t scratch. Just meditate on it. Be open to your intuitions. That’s what Aquarius is all about. Tell us what you’re all about, that we may/might grow with your prophetic wisdom.

i SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.21)  Gardening is your key. Plan this month (Aquarius), and sprout your seeds during the next (Pisces). Get the work done in Aries, and then into the Earth before May. Lose yourself in the Earth before looking at yourself and any fruits of your labors with fresh eyes next June, as your ruler Jupiter enters Gemini and you’ll see/look at yourself as others do.

j CAPRICORN (12.22-1.20)  AUM… Yoga means “union.” Practicing your yoga might lay a firm foundation for your 3rd eye to awaken intuitive wisdom. See beyond the 3rd-dimensional confines of space and time. Your soul doesn’t keep time — it only records worth. AUM…
