Aquarius is the best time of the year to study astrology and all things occult. Logic must/will soon regain its sway over what we have to do and say, but for today… it’s time to study the magique of your/our existence as unique human beings. The occult, or so it seems, is a human attempt to understand and then categorize the subtle world of mysticism that surrounds and roots this physical 3-D manifested reality that we are all seemingly sharing. I’ll show you my mysteries if you’ll show me yours… If you missed it, check out what’s coming up during your Year of the Dragon at

k AQUARIUS (1.21-2.19)  Now’s the time to fill your ship up with psychic 3rd-eye rocket fuel! Slow changes last. Quick changes come and go. Wait ’til the week of March 25th to slip your jet into high gear, when the Sun is due to electrify and enlighten your occult, esoteric ruler — the planet Uranus — in early Aries. Wait and see what the unexpected springs on thee in the spring, when the first robins start to sing.

l PISCES (2.20-3.20)  Your magique day is a week away! On the first day of Pisces on Sunday, the 19th, the Sun conjuncts your mystical ruler Neptune and initiates the next 13 years of your life (as Neptune slowly transits Pisces), marking the demise of the Piscean Age. Talk/listen to your dreams. Time to gather your magique and forget about this world for a cosmic minute and be reborn in an/the ocean of devotion.

a ARIES (3.21-4.20)  Please read Aquarius. Time for you to meditate on/amidst an electric, light, sky-blue hue. With your ruler Mars still retrograde in picky, detail-orientated Virgo ’til mid-April, you’ll find out sooner/later that your macho (or macha, as the case may be) stance ain’t gonna git’cha a/that chance to dance. Get ready to be “insightful” (well then, look it up). Not your best suit…

b TAURUS (4.21-5.20)  Starts now! Feels good? Electric! Short fuse. Julius, you’ll find out if it’s love (or not) by the Ides of March. Now, don’t you wish you’d read your Shakespeare? (the Ides fall around the middle of March). Busy Moon this week. Check out Cancer, below.

c GEMINI (5.21-6.21)  One more week to enlighten — first yourself, then us — with your brilliant new, unique, exciting, electrifying, intuitive, inventive, elective, direction selection. It comes to you in a dream on/around Valentine’s Day! You’ll LOVE it! It could make some of you famous (Mercury runs through your 10th House)…

d CANCER (6.22-7.22)  Follow the Moon and/to learn. The Moon’s in Virgo, conjuncting retrograde Mars at 11:11 a.m. on Friday, creating a “void-of-course” for 2 hours ’til the Moon enters Libra at 1:54 in the afternoon. Rest during those 2 hours, and then find somebody to love. Tell ’em how much you love them on Sunday at sunset, and then nail ’em down after dinner, when the Moon enters Scorpio. Tell ’em the MOJO said so.

e LEO (7.23-8.22)  One more week in the doggie house for you, and then it’s time to lay your rhapsody/masterpiece upon us… Starts out blue, true? But how’s it end around the bend? You’ll know in a week, when once again we speak. You’re on your way back, Jack. Soon, Honey Moon…

f VIRGO (8.23-9.22)  Please read Gemini, then Cancer, and then Aries. Don’t you hate that? How does the MOJO know?

g LIBRA (9.23-10.22)  The Moon enters your sign shortly after lunch on Friday the 10th and resides there ’til around 4:00 p.m. on Sunday. This is your weekend to unexpectedly score. It’s okay to start begging after 8:30 on Sunday, as the Moon favors the asteroid Chiron, the Wounded Healer. Show ’em your “wounds.” Maybe they’ll confuse pity for love — like you do. Mommy! Mommy! MOJO’s pickin’ on me again!

h SCORPIO (10.23-11.22)  One more full week (the Sun’s in Aquarius ’til the 19th) of electric, 3rd-eye, super-scientific, prolific comic book life, with you in the pivotal role as an action figure on the go. How does the MOJO know? Maybe ’cuz I’m a know-it-all SUPER SCORPIO? Invent something! It happens at home (4th House)…

i SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.21)  Since your ruler Jupiter is ensconced in Taurus ’til mid-June, you should start to follow Venus, the ruler of Taurus, for psychological clues. Great timing, as Venus just entered Aries, the sign of new starts, until March 5th, when it enters Taurus and conjuncts your ruler Jupiter late on March 13th. Start your art.

j CAPRICORN (12.22-1.20)  At 3:00 on Sunday afternoon, the Moon in Libra conjuncts your ruler Saturn, now retrograde in the last degree of the sign of harmony. Use it! Go deep. Meditate. Let this world drift away on its own for a little while (’til the end of September) as you explore your deepest needs for harmony, love and art in your life. It’s more fun being in love than not(?)…
