ARIES

 Many life lessons bringing spiritual strengths were presented in 2019 and now you are ready to get externally active. This year starts with a strong thrust with internal motivation, although there are obstacles to consider. You aim for more productivity, and you have a dedication to apply what you have learned, thus improving the quality of your life, home, and relationships. In January and February the tension may be very high because you want to accomplish so much.

Don’t push too hard. Friendships have changed and new friendships are developing bringing greater enthusiasm and innovative ideas from sharing. Previously delayed business and finances reach a result in the early months of this year. Productivity and earning power hold the primary focus in February and March.

Be very deliberate and cautious when dealing with contracts, money and other resources. The goal is to build a solid foundation to better support yourself and your loved ones. The Spring Equinox begins a potent new cycle late March. The Eclipse cycles in April and May are very powerful and regenerative for you. Relationships are reevaluated and priorities are clarified according to inner changes you make regarding your new growing values.

Relationships are complex because of diverse interests especially from April through July. Communication for delivering truthful feelings and understanding becomes the priority. Family responsibilities are of the highest concern from May through July. Anything related to emotional security and intimate relationships that you are experiencing will build to a turning point. Things will be different after the Fall Equinox. For some of you there will be a change in your marital status or new relationships with the potential for long lasting partnership. Interpersonal relationships, in business and for pleasure become the arena for constant expansion during the last three months of 2020 as Mars moves through Libra and Scorpio.

These signs of the zodiac create the field for learning about ourselves through relationships. The Eclipses in October also emphasize Aries and Libra, bringing acute awareness to the subject of the value that other people have in your life. Principles are applied in cooperation with financial gain. Make it a point to create mutually beneficial relationships. Avoid large-scale schemes in December. Gather information before you make the leap. Celebrate the holidays in a unique way. Let your sentiments be known.

TAURUS

The 2020 yearly horoscope predicts that the astrological cycles are generally in your favor for greater opportunities for experiencing the rewards of what you have cultivated. The harvest brings fulfillment with romantic interests, your creativity, and experiences with children, sports, entertainment, and other indulgences and pleasures. The trend for establishing creative outlet within community affairs is also heightened especially in February and March and throughout the year.

Financial investments are on the positive side during February and March. April brings some hesitation and reason to slow down while Mercury is retrograde. Perhaps there are some loose ends to complete or other matters that require introspection. The Eclipses in late April and May bring a renewal and a new dedication to your rebirth, reinforcing your ability and value on grounding the pure spirit of your essential being. You will begin on a new track socially and financially. Venus retrograde cycle also has an influence on your material world values during this same time period. Relationships will prove to be very intense, expensive, filled with quick life lessons, and give you much to review from April through June. Other people’s needs are a temptation for you to go into the provider role. Do what you do consciously, respecting boundaries, and by communicating clearly what you can and can not do. Traditional values are compared with new ideas, increasing your options for making some adjustments and changes. Family values are confirmed after some disturbances within the family structure during late May and June.

August and September confirm your goals, bringing greater reward. Recognition and honor come to you or to one of your family members during late August or September. By October the relationships you have within the work place and the environments that you habitually live and work will begin to improve, establishing more support and comfort for the immediate future.

 Work and health become more of a priority. Contractual relationships are confirmed one way or another during November. A marriage or a renewal in commitments brings fruitful outcomes. Joint financial matters and decisions are delayed with Mercury retrograde in December, but the conditions look good as long as your relationships are clean and productive.

GEMINI

Income and debt are measured and a time line for developing better circumstances will be defined. Having clear goals will help generate support. Look at the big picture, including your ideal scenes for professional advancement and for creating the home life that makes you happy. Create the structure and make the plans during January and February.

Give close attention to the above mentioned Mercury retrograde time periods. Use Mercury retrograde for reviewing, clearing, and realignment. The Spring Equinox and the Eclipse cycles from late March through May are highly significant with Mars and Venus in Gemini. What you do, say, and what connections you make with others can alter your life. During these months you bring fuel to the fire, igniting the potential for fulfilling nearly impossible tasks. Use the available energy and inspiration for your advancement.

The entire time that Venus and Mars are in Gemini will be exciting because of new experiences and new discoveries. Be cautious about self-inflicted challenges caused by scattering your energy too thin. Between the two of these planets that time period stretches from the Spring Equinox to August 7th. Late May and June bring a mixed bag of highs and lows. Connections made while Venus and Mars transits Gemini open the paths for new developments, including significant new relationships, but life lessons come along with your experiences, so use discernment. Venus retrograde cycle invites you to clarify your values and the consequences of your desires and to clean up past karmic patterns, especially during May and June.

With clear intentions, you can create consciously and improve the quality of your relationships and your business dealings during July and August, keeping close watch on financial matters. Managing what you create and cleaning things up will call for some elimination and organization during August and September. This prepares you for a very delightful and fulfilling October.

The Spring Equinox and the Eclipses in late March and late April really emphasize the amount of responsibility you have or you feel. You’ll be ready to make a few bold moves for professional and personal achievement between late April and late July. New resources are discovered within friendships and community. Family values become your most important focus during late May through July.

The first 6 months of this year will lead to a resolution by the end of July. Substantial accomplishments are likely due to the effort and ingenuity you have applied. Of course, Spirit has a hand in it. Your own willingness to learn from your past experiences has provided a philosophical, spiritual, and ethical framework for making things happen. Clearing the past for greater freedom to live your truth continues to be a theme throughout this year. Family, home, real estate, and any other matters that bring security, foundation, harmony, and stability will take another leap forward in October.

A Solar Eclipse Is Coming to New York

Published

on

I am not a big stargazer. Living in New York with all the light pollution, there aren’t many stars you can see anyway. You can see more stars walking the NYC streets filming “Law & Order” episodes than you can see in the sky on a clear night. And I am no astronomer; I can barely recognize the Big Dipper and where is Orion’s Belt; but, there is one celestial event that I am a fan of – and that’s a solar eclipse. This amazing event happens far less often than the proverbial blue moon and one is coming this April very near to New York City.

That is not the moon – Its the sun

A total solar eclipse is when the moon in bright daylight passes in front of the sun totally blocking the sun’s light. It is occurring on April 8th of this year and will be partially experienced by us in New York City. I remember hearing about a solar eclipse in 1970 when I was a young boy and New York went wild with excitement. It was passing through our city and classrooms throughout were taking shoe boxes and cereal boxes and punching small holes in them so children could experience the phenomenon safely. Looking up at the sun during the eclipse will result in severe eye damage but now special eclipse glasses are for sale in areas where eclipses traverse the sky.

Photo of Solar Eclipse at Camp Eclipse in Idaho

In 2017 I was able to experience this miracle of our planet in a cow field in Idaho. I do not use the term miracle lightly. A solar eclipse is a humbling experience and witnessing one makes one appreciate the earth we live on and the awesomeness of our universe. Just think about it… we live on a planet that has one moon that is the exact perfect circumference that lies at the absolute perfect distance between the sun and the planet that when it crosses in front of it totally blocks the sun’s circumference. WOW! That’s more geometry than I ever learned in high school and it is mind blowing.

Get your glasses

It is no wonder that ancient civilizations thought the world was coming to an end or that their gods had become angry with them. Imagine being unprepared and seeing the sun disappear in front of your eyes. What is even more amazing is how this unusual event affects the creatures on the planet. When I witnessed the eclipse in this cow pasture, as the moon slowly passed over the sun, the August temperature gradually cooled and as the light began to dim the cows began to moo and bellow. The birds thinking it was turning to night began to fly back to their nests as bees returned to their hives. When the moon fully blocked the sun and we were fully enclosed in darkness there was an eerie quiet that swept over my campsite of over 300 people as we gazed up with our protective glasses and took in the marvel of what was happening. Although full contact (or when the moon fully blocks the sun) may only last a few minutes, the effect lasts a lifetime. The time it took the moon to pass over the sun was over two hours and I just sat gazing at the entire event from start to finish, in which, on a number of occasions, as I pondered the enormity of this wonder tears did well up in my eyes. How lucky we are to be on this planet.

In Chile the eclipse was witnessed in a remote mountain range

Since then I have traveled to a mountain range in Chile to take in the sight. While still amazing the sun was partially hidden by a peak; but still a tremendous experience. I took a cruise to Antarctica to see the eclipse in December 2021 which took place at 3 AM. Despite it being summer down there the sun was hidden by clouds so we didn’t get the full effect but who can complain when included in the voyage there were PENGUINS!!!

Chili eclipse

This April the solar eclipse passes through much of the eastern part of the United States. We in New York will not experience 100% totality of the sun being covered, we will experience 80-85% – parts further west will experience 100% darkness. For us, first contact of the moon with the sun will occur at 2:10 pm and final contact will be 4:36 with full coverage at 3:25 PM. While 100% coverage will be a life changing experience, even the 80% we will witness is worth taking the time out of your day to enjoy. Buy your protective glasses, punch holes in your cereal boxes, take out your spaghetti strainers (they create an amazing effect of multiple eclipses); get yourself to any field clear of trees and buildings and prepare yourself for a sight you will not forget. – Don’t forget – it’s April 8th!!!!
