Welcome to “Starcast” – a delightful look into what the Cosmos has in store for the 12 sun-signs. There’s no doubt about it – our solar system is not only magnificent – it’s also extremely dependable. Wherever you are on Earth, you can be happy or sad or inspired; you can fall madly in love, have a cold, or not be thinking about a thing (which, of course, is virtually impossible) – it makes no difference. Because every 28 to 31 days, our dependable Sun, and that equally dependable Moon, are going to be perfectly aligned within the same sun-sign, creating a very dependable New Moon, which signifies new beginnings for everyone – no matter who you are or where you are.
Let’s investigate: In your mind’s eye, scroll back to last Thursday, November 21, 2013 at 10:49 p.m. (ET). That’s the time when the Sun (personal endeavors) left the intense and magnetic sun-sign of Scorpio, the Scorpion, and slipped into the exuberant and fun-loving sun-sign of Sagittarius, the Centaur (half human/half horse, forever roaming the open fields on the lookout for adventure – of all sorts). And early this week, on Monday, December 2, 2013 at 7:23 p.m. (ET), everything moved into place for that New Moon (new beginnings) to occur in the dashing and brilliant Sagittarius. Effortlessly, it set-up a dynamic force field that will unfold favorably over the next two weeks. It’s the perfect time to initiate new ideas, new plans; certainly, new projects, as well as the ideal time to attract new people and new opportunities into your Life. Pace yourself – and keep those thoughts of yours both optimistic and focused.
Visualize a numerical (1 through 12) clock. That’s your birth chart. And each pie-shaped wedge (3 to 2 o’clock, for example) is a house, an area of activity (love, money – in every currency imaginable – work, and so on) in your existence, one of which Sagittarius, governs in your birth chart.
Important: Keep whatever occurs (no matter how exciting) – confidential. It’s your power source – all the more powerful for being kept hidden.
Here’s how the New Moon in the dazzling Sagittarius, the Centaur, affects the 12 sun-signs within the 12 houses of the zodiac wheel.
ARIES March 21-April 19
Your 9th House: New Ideas and New Projects – near and at a distance plus long-distance travel. It’s near the close of 2013 – and you still have some key projects to finish. Do the difficult ones, first. Then, one more. Now, celebrate! SIDESTEP a refusal to see recent developments clearly.
TAURUS April 20-May 20

GEMINI May 21-June 21

LIBRA September 23-October 22

SCORPIO October 23-November 22
Your 2nd House: Income, Possessions, Lifestyle. Bring your December efforts (professional and personal) into line with your December desires. You’ll be amazed at how simple it can be. And defer whatever you can until 2014. It’s really so easy. SIDESTEP not living in the moment.
SAGITTARIUS November 23-December 21

AQUARIUS January 20-February 18
Your 11th House: Getting-What-You-Want. Since the planet, Jupiter (abundance and Lady Luck), governs this sector, you usually obtain the desires-of-your-heart. The point now is to know – really know – what you want. And go after that! SIDESTEP the abrupt or sarcastic answer.
PISCES February 19-March 20
