SkyCode Horoscopes for the week of April 3-9, 2017

Codes to unlock the stars, not to be locked down by them. “Look before you leap!” Wily Mercury goes retrograde on Sunday. Someone who normally could care less about astrology becomes a believer for a week or so at the start of Mercury’s retrograde. He might know no other astrological term, but will shout “Retrograde!” […]

SkyCode Horoscopes for March 13-19, 2017

Codes to unlock the stars, not to be locked down by them. “Get to know ya”   We might feel a great rush to intimacy as eloquent Mercury speeds up next to amorous Venus in Aries on Saturday. Often words and feelings flow with lots of flourish. But they have little follow through. You might […]

SkyCode Horoscopes for January 16-22, 2017

Codes to unlock the stars, not to be locked down by them. “Do No Harm” In the US, on Monday, we’ll celebrate the birthday of one of the world’s greatest drum majors for justice, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. On Thursday, there’s a tense aspect between spirited Mars and tedious Saturn that makes me […]

SkyCode Horoscopes for December 26, 2016-January 1, 2017

Codes to unlock the stars, not to be locked down by them. “Annus Horribilis?” This is going to be a longer intro than usual. Only fitting since it’s the last intro for 2016 and the first for 2017. You can skip it all if you’re only here for the ‘scopes below. But I hope you […]

SkyCode Horoscopes for December 5-December 11, 2016

Codes to unlock the stars, not to be locked down by them. “Dead Ass (Serious)” I had to laugh when I first heard someone exclaim, “Dead ass!” I was providing tech training for young adults in the Bronx. It took an already strange phrase, “dead serious,” to another absurd level. I mean, death is pretty […]

SkyCode Horoscopes for September 5-September 11, 2016

Codes to unlock the stars, not to be locked down by them.  This week’s planetary SkyCodes remind me “Time in a Bottle,” by the late Jim Croce. My elementary school music teacher, Ms. Pados, introduced me to it. I liked the song as soon as she played it for us to sing in chorus. She […]

SkyCode Horoscopes for August 22-August 28, 2016

Codes to unlock the stars, not to be locked down by them.  Two different planets conjoin with gargantuan Jupiter to bookend the week. On Monday, clever Mercury teams up with Jupiter on his slow roll to a retrograde next week. He inspires us to see the big picture even as he slows down. We might […]

Saturn in Sagittarius: Bridging the divide between Us, Them, Here, and There

Saturn in Sagittarius: Bridging the divide between Us, Them, Here, and There I have to agree with the President. When talking about the growing concern about Donald Trump’s run for the presidency and the violence associated with his rallies, President Obama said this about Republican Party leaders, “How could you be shocked? This was the […]

The Easier Way

My client would have heavy Saturn “sitting” on her spirited Sun by conjunction this fall, just like he’s parked on my own Sun right now. I described Saturn for her as the planet of “Sit yo Black ass down!” I say it this way most times when I know I have to lighten the mood, […]

Johnny Depp, Pluto, Saturn, grow up,

Things getting deep with Depp…

The media’s been putting the squeeze on Johnny Depp lately. In the last month, I can recall a few articles like the one I linked. Of course, Johnny’s not helped matters by handing out awards drunk last year and giving incoherent speeches. Despite finally “settling down” with fine ass Amber Heard after being settled down […]

Between silence and turbulence…

If we’re connected through social media, either on Facebook or Twitter, then you might have observed I’ve been relatively quiet. I’ve even blacked out my avatars. I’ve been following the advice I usually give my clients when they’re undergoing a transit or some astrological forecast involving Saturn. As you may or may not know, I […]

weekly horoscopes and a post on whether something is "bad" or not

Weekly Horoscopes: September 1-6 — “Is it bad?”

Weekly Horoscopes for September 01 – September 06, 2014   “Is it bad?” Over the years, I’ve gotten that question, in different ways, as I’ve practiced astrology. Of course, I’ve often given the stock answer that nothing is good or bad, but I’ve come to rethink this recently. This week I particularly felt inspired to […]

Weekly Horoscopes: August 25-31– Where is the love?

Weekly Horoscopes for August 25 – August 31, 2014 Where is the love? For our weekly horoscopes this week, it looks like summer’s decided to take an early vacation. There’s been a nip in the air, at least for the last few days here in NYC. #Virgo season, the last summer zodiac sign, has officially […]

Mars-Saturn, Mars-Jupiter

Remember this when Mars-Saturn seems to have you down…

Meet Floria Guei, 24 year-old French woman who stunned the world last Saturday with a photo finish to remember. In fact, as we approach the Mars-Saturn conjunction tomorrow, where we may be tempted to give up when we don’t own a long-term plan, think about this video. This sister could have given up; she was in a distant 4th place. But she didn’t and the result is remarkable.


Here’s more about her actual chart:

Mars-Saturn, Mars-Jupiter





















Although Guei had her Jupiter Return last year, she was in the shadow of it for most of the spring. She’s definitely found some measure of her path…and even a moment of fame. I’m very impressed by the power of her Venus to ultimately shine, along with her Mars-Jupiter trine to keep her in motion. Her performance in the “Miracle” race is well testified by her ability to find the reserves of energy (Mars-Jupiter with a wide contact to Pluto) after a sluggish start. If she has enough time, she’ll find a way to perform well in a race. The problem is that she may not always have enough time, both on the track or off. She’ll have to learn to perform when it’s not most important, not when the odds are stacked against her.


Weekly Horoscopes: August 18-24

Weekly Horoscopes for August 18 – August 24, 2014 Weekly horoscopes Something odd happens over the next two weeks. However, first, let’s cover some astro-basics right quick to see what’s odd or, at least, interesting about it. There’s one set of benefic planets in astrology and another set of malefics. The greater and lesser benefics […]
