AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) Have you been having problems with someone, either in person or online? If things have been rather tense, now's the time to swallow your pride and start communicating and compromising.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) Are matters involving home, family, domestic arrangements, parents or property dominating your thinking? Things will gradually improve, as long as you stay centred and keep an open mind.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Work projects are favoured, as you make the most of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus visiting your career zone. Creativity and motivation are high but try to keep a sense of perspective.
LEO (July 23 - August 22) Party-loving Lions are keen to socialise and circulate; mix and mingle; imagine and create; as you let your hair down and have some fun. But it's Equinox day so try not to overdo things!
PISCES (February 19 - March 20) You're thinking about a financial, business or work project as today's planetary patterns help you tackle tasks with extra energy and enthusiasm. But things won't happen overnight!
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) Open and honest communication is the secret to success at the moment. There'll be plenty of opportunities to expand your peer group. But don't neglect your long-term friends in the process.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) The planetary patterns give tired Taureans a welcome energy surge today. The stars also favour some quiet contemplation, as you use your intuition to help you solve a current problem.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) You're in the mood to help a loved one through a rough patch, or cheer up a close friend who is down-in-the-dumps. If you get drawn into a fiery discussion, strive to be balanced and fair-minded.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Scorpio is the sign of extremes, and you can have trouble relaxing. As we celebrate the Equinox - when day and night are of equal length - strive to bring more balance into your busy life.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) It's time to get talking with your nearest and dearest about subjects you may not necessarily feel comfortable about. Try to be fair and balanced, as you view things from differing perspectives.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Business ventures are brewing at the moment, as you combine common sense with intuition to achieve a positive result. Don't be impatient though. Your dreams will take a while to manifest.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) Are you being too subjective about a current issue? Take a step back, adjust your focus, and strive to view the situation from a much broader and wiser perspective. Balance is the key.
I am an eclectic wiccan who about 16 days ago found out she was pregnant. For those of you out there who have had children (or are having a child) what measures did you take or are taking from a spiritual standpoint. What helped you?

Pregnant Yoga, Meditation, Chant, and Natal Hypnotherapy (CDs can be found online). For my first, my daughter, I was 20 and I was an idiot, I did absolutely nothing but hibernate. For my son, I wanted a natural birth and I wanted to really embrace the entire process. It was so much more fulfilling and I really feel like a stronger person. Men can't birth babies! When my daughter was born, I was a happy mom, when my son was born it was a spiritual experience!! I was so overwhelmed with joy and I felt such a stronger bond with him immediately.
I suggest Calm Birth by Robert Bruce Newman. Changed my whole view on childbirth! There is a CD for that too, but I didn't try it (I borrowed the book from the library and it didn't have the CD). When you read the description, you'll know why it applies to pagan mamas!
Stay away from doing any high energy magick, folk is fine, but ritual work can be dangerous for the little bit.
I wore an amulet at all times. And I searched all over for a good "mother goddess" mantra, and the one that really made me feel great was Acchi Mantra by Lisa Thiel on YouTube. Listened to it over and over and sang with it. It's gorgeous.
Surround yourself with beautiful sounds and beautiful sights. When I woke up at 5am from insomnia, I took advantage of seeing the sun rise and welcoming the day...then I would go back to sleep, but still! =D
You can PM me anytime. I've been through it twice. I have a 7 year old and a 6 month old.
