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.
A few days back I reached down and petted what I thought was a stray cat. A oppossum was looking up at me when I pulled my hand away from scratching behind its ears. It turned and went down porch steps and off into the night without incident. Had that been a badger I most likely would be mixsing a few fingers so must pay more attention. I love nature and always have but that one surprised me. Tonight a woodchuck was chasing the cats away from a neighboring pond where he was drinking at. Our pond has dried up awaiting spring rains so stray cats are wandering even though they have three, one gallon containers of fresh water put out at all times. It amazes me how the wild life comes right up to the house for protection when coyotes are out. My question is this. Is it just my imagination or do people who follow a witch, shaman, nature, magic etc path, see more wildlife than normal people? I know people around here who claim there are no small wildlife critters because coyotes ate them all or they never see anything but occasional rabbits. My wiccan friend one town over says they come right up to her too but her dog usually scares them. My dog does not seem to notice them, as in does not care. Coincidence? Drawn to us because of our Natural paths? or do we just notice Nature more? Thoughts please. :-)
I believe we do, brother. It may have to do with our deep connection to the Earth. Most people view our Mother as nothing more than a floating heap of resources to be mindlessly consumed, and reflect this rather callous, indifferent, and offensively cavalier attitude in how they go about their lives. Here in the region I live, the big thing is "wolf control"; It makes me sick to the core when I read these stories about how contemptuously these creatures are treated by ranchers. Personally, I have seen more critters and creatures than most people I know. I go into the mountains, I see deer and elk; They know I am not there to kill them. I know hunters that go to the same area with the intent to kill, and will spend a week and not locate or see any! On my property, there are Jays, hummingbirds, and squirrels that will get as close to me as they are comfortable. And the strays will allow me to carefully touch them. So yes, I am of the firm belief that our strong connection with the Mother allows us to see more wonderful creatures!
I have only seen a fox once; it was incredible! They are magnificent creatures. The most awesome wild animal experience was when a bald eagle was hovering above the car I was in, then landed...It was the most beautiful and graceful sight I ever beheld. Still gives me goose bumps.

Hunters and fishers and hikers see more wildlife as well. I've noticed wildlife a lot ever since I was a kid and have been Wiccan for only a few months. But I've gone camping a lot and my family has always been the hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, let's have the biggest backyard possible kind. If coyotes have eaten all the wildlife, then they would leave or starve. Also, if there are that many coyotes, then people should be able to notice them yipping at night unless they're deaf. I'm not sure if it's a notice things more or they feel more comfortable around you. Also, people who have nature paths or who like to go outdoors are generally quieter or try to be quieter so they have higher chances if seeing animals. Those who are loud only see bugs and plants. You kinda can't scare the plants away if you're a big, blundering thing. Big blundering things are very noisy and step in everything :/ T-T
