The current month’s horoscopes are uploaded on the sign change each month around the 21st. (There is a link to the previous month’s) These forecasts can help you prepare for the cosmic weather, but they shouldn’t be taken as immovable fate. You can view horoscopes the same way you might think about bringing an umbrella if the weather forecast predicts rain. But you should never lock yourself indoors out of fear of what the dark clouds might bring! Some of us will have more astrological immunity than others.
This astral immunity can also change at certain times of the year when challenging transits barely touch us. If we are tired and stressed however, we can be far more sensitive to difficult planetary movements. Another possibility is that depression might hide us away, so that we even miss out on the great opportunities promised by the sunnier, fortunate aspects. As Ptolemy said; ‘The planets incline, but they do not compel’ Horoscopes are best read for your rising sign, followed by your sun sign. Find your rising sign with the Horoscope Maker.
Love, Career & Spiritual Sections
I use the movements of Mercury for the career section, Venus for the love section and Ceres for spiritual development. If Mars is in a foundational house that month I will included that under career, but it can signify passionate love too. Using your rising sign, the planet in question will actually be traveling through the zone mentioned in your birthchart, so it is more inline with a traditional astrology reading. When reading for your Sun sign, the planet in question will be configured to your sun in a favourable or unfavourable manner, based on whole sign house aspects (Where Sign = House). This means for example, when Venus is three signs away (90º) from your Sun sign, it will be square your sign whatever degree it falls in.
