The astrological week opens up with the passage of the Moon from Aries to Taurus and the Great Sextile of the Portal of Peace, details of which can read in
Moon in Taurus is wonderfully sensual, a pure breeze of hot air, charming and groovy. It is offering us an intense emotional background, in order to face the heavy transformative energies of the Cross of Cardinal Signs: Uranus in Aries allows us to see a radiant future but it seems to be too far away and we feel frustrated; Jupiter in Cancer in conjuction to the Dark Moon until next spring makes us intollerant and restless, as we can never find the right place to stay; Venus in Libra is trying to soothe us, allowing us to take a break through her lightheartedness, but soon Pluto in Capricorn is behind her back, and works like a drill because he wants us to get to our inner Light.
Before smashing our head against the wall for the big input amount we are receiving, let us take a deep breath and get inside the Great Goddess' warm embrace, in order to release tensions and to use inner obstacles as a stairway to heaven, which is like descending into the dephts of our Soul. Moon in Taurus can help us by her rhythmic dance to give a big start to New Energy in our lives. Using our body, we could win any frustration or tension, as we will feel strong and firm within ourselves.
On Wednesday 28, Moon passes on to Gemini and then on Saturday 31 it passes on to Cancer. This is an intimate journey through the first four Zodiac signs, related to our Body, Sense of Self, our Childhood, our Roots and our Origins.
This are this week's issues, that we are going to be dealing with, each of us in our own way, at our pace, and in the free choice of conscious beings.
Those who belong to Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn will obviously have a great chance to go deep within their own roots, using love and forgiveness to release an important issue that needs to be healed.
Taurus and Scorpio will be able to travel very easily along their days, feeling themselves acknowledged and appreciated for what they really are, while Leo and Aquarius will make some resistance, as they will feel forced in shaking a few beliefs that need to be renewed. 
Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces are all under the influence of the conjuction of Neptune and Chiron retrograde in Pisces. This aspect creates a foggy sensation around their mind on the one hand, and on the other, it shows them how big the illusion was that they were living. It will take them some courage to face this trail towards Truth, but this is the chance for a complete awakening, each of themin their own way, at their own pace.
Have a wonderful!

Tomorrow, August 25 on 11.11 pm Italian time, the second Great Sextile is going to open up, following the first that took place on July 29 (
The Arcturians had already informed us about this great opportunity through Suzanne Caroll ( - The Open Corridor) and now on the web there is a very interesting video talking about this event: I suggest you to watch it, as it gives instructions how to best use the wonderful energies flowing on Earth to bring peace in the devasted areas of Syria and Egypt. 
On an astrological level, what happens is the return of this great sextile of Water planets (Jupiter in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio, Neptune in Pisces - we can understand what we really want) and of Earth planets (Moon in Taurus, Sun and Mercury in Virgo, Pluto in Capricorn - we can perceive our exact place in life), like back on July 29. Water and Earth are two elements that represent the sweet Feminine Energy of the Great Goddess, who is now asking each and everyone to invoke her with a collective meditation at 11.11 Italian time, to bring peace on our planet.
By visualizing the Goddess entering into us, giving us her gifts of Love and Peace, we can then direct those rays towards the needing areas of Earth, to heal our planets and ourselves.
This time the sextile is even more powerful than in July, as it is supported and reinforced by the Cross of the Cardinal Signs, formed by Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Cancer, Venus in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn (strong energies are trying to shake us to invite us to look for what we really love in life). This means that tomorrow our sky will be inhabited by two trines and one cross in their middle. What an explosion of energy! 

On an individual level, every sign is called in, so let us get ready to listen close, as we will be filled with intuitions and illuminatios. If you can and wish, try to stay home in your own silence, priviledge calm attivities, meditate, of course, listen to ecstatic music. You will surely receive great gifts and the certainty of being in a place you have been longing for, the higher dimension of your heart.
Embrace the Great Goddess and you will find a new being smiling at you from the mirror.

venerdì 23 agosto 2013


Last night at 01.03 Italian time the Sun entered Virgo, sixth Zodiac sign, the medium point of the whole Wheel, a passage leading us from the path of the self-delevopment into an important step: the outer world, the Others, that the self will meet during the sign of Libra.
Virgo is often associated with the search for pureness and order, because it serves as a container for all the processes of individual growth made by the previous signs:
Aries gave birth to a fresh and sparkling self
Taurus rooted it in a cosy environment 
Gemini developped its intellectual qualities 
Cancer created a relation with its origins
Leo decreed its self-definition.
Now Virgo has the task of collecting every level of awareness that Man has so far reached, dividing them into an accurate order based on its innate sense of hierarchy. We can thus use them, to go on successfully to the next step.
To make a good job, Virgo has many virtues on its side: practical sense, discernment, intuition, sense of duty and determination. These are all necessary tools to complete the hard task to prepare Man for meeting the Other, in order to be ready for a respectful relationship. And this is the first step for a further integration of the individual inside a community.
In our body, all these qualities are placed inside our intestines, starting from the duodenum area, the phisical area where choices are made and discernment fixes itself into our organs.
Possible health issues such as digestion problems or a bad food absortion are always a mark of an unbalance caused by a lack of order or pureness in our lives, or a strong attachment to these virtues, that become obstacles for a positive way of living.    
Today the Cross of Mobile Signs is actived, involving Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. Key words here are change, movement, shift. Gemini, Sagittarius and Pisces will feel involved in this in different ways: Gemini and Sagittarius will have the chance to be more constructive and concentrated, while Pisces will be able to integrate their shadow, that is, not to refuse an obstacle, but take it into consideration and live it as an opportunity.
As for the other signs, when August ends with Virgo and its gifts, Aries feels encaged, Taurus reassured, Cancer embraced, Leo challenged, Libra starts waiting, Scorpion pays attention, Capricorn is joyous, Aquarius gets anxious.
Last point: in this right moment Virgo is facing the opposition of Neptune and Chiron retrograde in Pisces. This conjunction represents the merging of an individual in the ONE, a frightening event for a Virgo, who wants to distinguish, divide and label. Look at it as a chance to pass over the strict limits of your mind, if you wish to do so.

Just a few words about today's Full Moon (August 21 2013) to show you all its important implications.
August Full Moon takes place in Aquarius, obviously creating opposition to the Sun in Leo. The interesting thing is that these two astral bodies give birth to a dialogue, which is an important comparison between anticonformism (Moon in Aquarius) and pure formalism (Sun in Leo), between breaking the rules living out of the box on one side, and on the opposite, following faithfully known patterns and respecting traditions.
First of all, this dialogue gets wider, as Venus is involved in it as well. This planet is now in Libra, being thus seductive and free, sweet like a summer breeze smelling of peach. Now Venus helps the Moon in enhancing the feeling of leaving daily life behind to seek for adventure. Aquarius and Libra both belong to Air Signs, very strong dreamers of what is beyond. In this case, the Moon and Venus create an aspect that pushes us to look for a new kind of relationship, a freer way to stay together, a more respectful kind of couple, opened but with a strong complicity.
Both the Moon and Venus represent the Feminine Forces, in opposition to the Sun, the very Masculine Force, that has Mercury (in Leo) as a companion, symbolyzing the mental stiffness of those who do not want to lose their positions.
The most involved signs in these passages will obviously be Aquarius, Libra and Gemini, on one side, that will start to shimmer and shake, and Leo, on the other side. Aries and Sagittarius, other Fire Signs like Leo, even if involved, can face a challenge very eagerly, for they feel alive when they find themselves in such a erratic situation. Yet, Aries is trying to catch the right pace, hosting Uranus for a while. This is the most difficult time for Aries, for these natives feel like shaking the world but are not able to do it yet. They should wait until the end of the year, dedicating some time to make the right decisions.
Going back to Leo and the dialogue inside a couple, this multiple planetary aspect wants to teach these natives (and obviously to  all of us) that New Energy came in when the Old one was almost gone. Sticking to what we know, to false certainties does not pay you back any longer. It is necessary to make a step forward and to use Heart and Generosity (Leo's strong aspects) to embrace a New Vision brought about by the Moon. This Vision is a relation based on personal freedom, wholly and fully respecting the other, wholly and fully accepting the person in front of us, for you become aware that he/she is a mirror of ourselves. 
This is also true for Scorpio and Taurus, that have been through a slow process of deep transformation for a while. They are also very involved by the Aquarius Moon, as they are part of the Fixed Signs' Cross (together with Aquarius and Leo). It is correct and natural to flow with this cosmic moment into the Unknown, even if it is hard. One little step at a time, with your own pace.
Regarding Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn and Pisces, that have not been mentioned yet, they are already very busy with their present planetary hosts.
Cancer - Jupiter, Mars and Dark Moon - you really feel uneasy, as you wish to go out from your own personal tunnel to see the light at last - do not despair, everything counts: your queasiness will put you on the right track for the solution, that will be handed over to you on a silver platter next spring;
Virgo - Neptune's and Chiron's opposition in Pisces is hard to bear, as it blurs your mind. Yet this is the service! You can now have some rest, logging out from that unstoppable computer that your mind is;
Capricorn - Pluto in your sign, square to Uranus in Aries, Cancer's planetary group in opposition and now even Venus square in Libra - they all create a wonderful geometric pattern. This is a matrix you can try to match to in order to take the best in you out in the world; 
Pisces - the world is now revealing itself to your eyes - by the end of 2013 everything will be completely clear. In the meantime, you are watching other humans running around, busy to find their own inner balance. You observe them from above, thinking they are all crazy.

domenica 18 agosto 2013



During this week the Sun will enter the Virgo, giving the right measure to all the summer excesses that light and heat had stimulated. We will feel pushed towards insight and self-contemplation and this feeling will be supported by the path of the Moon, perfectly in line with the cosmic moment.
Today and tomorrow, (August 18/19) the Moon is in Capricorn - thus inspiring us with the need for silence, to find a sense, an objective, to make an idea real. The spirit of the Moon in Capricorn starts from a very high point of view: it inspires decisiveness and determination, concentration and earnestness. No more nuances, only well defined ways.
On 20th and 21st the Moon is in Aquarius, where, on 21st 03:45 a.m. (Italian time), it becomes Full. The Moon in Aquarius takes up the push from Capricorn to reach for a goal and it transforms it in a future ideal for a wonderful life, where everybody feels better. The opposition that the Moon is going to build to the Sun, on August 21st, will allow us to face this challenge: what does  our ego need to feel good and which are the requests from our beloved? To answer this question we should release selfishness to step towards others. This is good for them, surely, but it will be great for us! 
On 22nd the Moon enters Pisces. In case we have made a good job by opening ourselves to our own and others' good,  we can now enjoy the results, feeling our Heart open up, and this chance is there until the day after.
Then, on 24th, the Moon passes on to Aries. This is a new Moon cycle through the Zodiac. We started this week with determination, which allowed us to discover what is really important for ourselves and for those we love and love us. We shared this feeling, that, like a flower, opened up in the fourth chakra (Heart Chakra). Our whole being can then resonate to the gentle touch of Beauty in Life. Now, the sparkling energy of Aries allows us to fully live as light as wind. 

In the meantime, the strong tensions in Cancer are loosening. Family relations, desires of feeling part of a whole, lose their obsessive aspects that haunted us lately, even if they leave us with a sense of melancholy. Remember that these feelings are necessary to shake those who tend to resist an uneasy situation just to feel accepted. But you, your dream, the you you deeply are, where are you? It is possible to answer this question only shaking those suffocating situations at the foundations (Jupiter/Black Moon in Cancer square to Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn). Be immensely grateful to these planets, as they give you the chance to get out of that door to find a perfect sense for you, stemming from you, as a result of your own efforts, of which you can be grateful only to yourselves.
Today (August 18) Venus enters Libra, thus sweetening possible tensions with a note of an airy desire for fun.
Mercury passes on to Virgo on 24th, where it is governor. The week ends with a touch of aplomb, now particularly necessary, considering the emotional peaks we suffered in these last days.  
Have a wonderful week!

Dear Friends,
this is the last Group of Zodiac signs which I wrote astrological summer forecast for. My point of view about forecasts is that we need to know the planet movements not to know our future, which does not exist, but to take advantages of all the chances they open up for us.
Mobile Signs are those taking place at the end of a season. In this period of the year there are a lot of changes in weather, reflecting a very unsteady nature in the natives.
These people need to get rid of the old to step into something new, new adventures in the unknown. They feel they have to stay away from boredom. They welcome anything new in their life, just until the novelty becomes habit. Then they have to start all over again, a new exploration must begin, there is always something new or someone else to know.
GEMINI - Strength is on your side. You have the drive to face an introspective journey inside yourselves, which could be a hard thing to do, considering your airy nature. You would rather chase for novelties anywhere instead of piercing the unconscious. Yet sometimes it is necessary to stop, to allow all the new things you have found to root inside of you, so that they can get to be your reality. Otherwise they risk to transform into air. The greatest change you have to face now takes place within you. You are asked to sit down, take a look at your life and to intensely investigate all the reasons that made you who you are today, no matter what this means. This is important to teach your speedy mind to slow down and use all the brilliant ideas you always have. It is necessary to let new aspects arise from within you: compassion  and empathy. You are asked to develop the Heart path, in order to complete your personal mental hologram. In this way your Whole being will be incredibly enriched. When heart and mind come to a mutual comunication, oppositions and separation are cancelled, the world is a Whole being and you are a part of everything and everyone. Every Air Sign (of which you are part) has a specific task in this New Era, the creation of thoughts of Love, so intense to have the strength to become real (Air Signs are linked to the energy of thinking).  Thoughts create our environment and our relations, and if you are able to nourish your Mind with your Heart desires, you can thus become a perfect  (in a human sense, of course!) co-creator of New Earth. Do not be afraid of investigating within you. You could start by writing down what you feel and perceive, as this is a thing you love to do. Do not be scared of feeling moved, as emotions are decrystallized in this process, to allow you to shine. And do not even think of getting bored, as inner view is in constant transformation!
VIRGO - Your Whole world is changing. You, the strongest humans in control of the Zodiac (you have the gift to take order out of the cosmic chaos!), cannot get used to all the processes of transformation that your life is  going through now. Please learn to think that chaos does not exist; it is only the flowing of cosmic energies holding a given pattern, aimed at the Supreme Good. You cannot claim that everything gets in place according to your will, if this does not stem for your Heart desires. You need to stop, to let the hold go, through which your whole body got stiff in the long run, in order to open up to this wonderful Light. This Light needs to be completed by Logic, that your sheer mind holds in quantity. Your repeated question now is: how could I get here? and now, where will I go? Hard times started from within the couple, where your partner did not match to your requests any longer. If you stuck to your rigid bevahiour, instead of wondering why that was happening, getting apart could have been a natural consequence. At this point, you have the time for a honest analysis in front of the mirror. This is what is going to save you. Reset requests, breath deeply, enter your womb (that is, draw your attention to your body, to its symptoms, to its calls) and from there let the Mystic Virgo arise, the great Feminine that is able to give everything the right place, to create a new Cosmic Order of divine perfection. In this stage, order does not come from logical thinking, but from flowing with your Heart desires. The Mystic Virgo has direct access to your Heart, as she holds the Product of Awaken Humanity's work in her hand. The world is floating towards the return of the great goddess and you, men and women, can be the first to bring this sweet vibration in your life and thus to others. Be ready to leave for this journey. Maybe you cannot even guess where you will get at or what you will find on your way, but this is the surprise! Let yourselves be softly embraced by the cosmic flowing energies, your body needs it.
SAGITTARIUS - You can take a great advantage from the introspective journey you started this summer. As you can travel all over the surface of our world, you can also travel in the depth of your soul, to discover new paths of self-knowledge that you can share with others like a know-how for life. It is important to start with the right drive, which is what helps you to realize an old dream you forgot on a shelf , due to your  habit to spread your energies all over. You need to focus towards an aim, you need determination to get there, without hurry, with the right pace, because, as White Bull says "God is never late, but not even early". There are things from your past you need to reconsider, even if it hurts. Instead of always looking at tomorrow, at the next best thing, this trip is going to take you back to discover ancient mysteries holding the key of who you are today. If you feel encaged or restless, it is necessary to discover the very reason why, so then you can step to something else. This is the great gift. The new awareness will lead you halfway on your complete personal evolution. This means that finding the keys of what still takes you back will mark the beginning of a new journey, starting next year, when Jupiter will enter Leo, a Fire Sign, as you are. Until then fear nothing and investigate. There are so many treasures to discover, hidden under layers of rage. You can thus enter the Great Cave, where the exhausted Warrior can rest from fatigue and can be cured of the possible injuries he collected along the way. This is a chance to heal everything you feel not alligned in you. It is a Golden Moment. You, among the Zodiac Signs, hold the Ancient Knowledge and can thus have access to a new Divine Philosophy, finding God within yourselves. Those who will look into your eyes will see this light and get a great advantage from your vibration. You can see the Infinite, please share it with us!
PISCES - your key word now is falling-in-love, as this cosmic moment holds something special for you, who  costantly live searching for this vibration that opens up your heart and make your dreams come true. Now you are feeling not free to go wherever you would like, as if synchronicity would take you towards something you do not understand and cannot therefore accept. Do not make any resistance and follow the signs. Trust them. The world needs dreamers and being in love is the best situation for daydreaming.  When you are in love, you feel everything is possible. You accept no limit and no boundaries. This is what is asked from you, that your state of dreamer becomes a permanent state of being. You can thus produce a magical vibration in you, that would change reality. This means to expand your own state of consciousness. And if, while you dream, you realize you cannot match with your life any longer, you can start to slowly change it, with your own pace, at your choice. The best thing to do to find peace of mind is living according to what brings you joy. Start looking at your life from this perspective, as you will then be able to step out the dark tunnel you have been walking through because you thought that feeling good was selfish and only self-sacrifice could give you dignity. You are not asked to leave your job or your family, but to resonate with a state of being far from the masks you used to wear to hide your sensitivity and frailty. You are free to do this at your own pace. Learn to observe when and how you "wear" your different behaviours during the day and try, at least for 5 minutes in the beginning, to live authentically. Observe what comes up from within you when you are in that condition of sticking to your own inner truth. Do you like it? Do you feel unease? It is like a training. You can make many exercises in this sense. Important is you can reach the mermaid hidden deep inside your heart, holding the best part of you in herself, the erratic and changeable and dreamy nature of reality, where you can relax. The World needs dreamers, John Lennon used to sing this all the time.
