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.
So I have heard from a newbie who is new to wicca and has said he has been having bad luck and is blaming his goddess and gods of his practice for it. Asking why would they let him go through that and why they didn't help him. I'm not saying I'm perfect and that I haven't lost fate in anything,but I see a lot of newbies thinking that since they been practicing magick that they're being jinxed by the "devil" or saying that magick is bringing bad luck. Every one goes through stuff bad stuff is bound to happen its about how we go about that helps us. Have you thought that maybe it was a lesson even? We have to take life positively
Humans have a way of blaming the deities they believe in for any bad luck they may be having or when they are going through difficult situations in their life. Every single person can have a strike of "bad" luck or have something going on with them, but this does not mean that everytime this happens we jump towards anyone of our beliefs and start raging and blaming them for what's wrong in our lives. As far as I know, the "devil" is non-existant in Wicca, so juding by the fact that their blaming this could mean they are being retained by Christian beliefs. If a person is going through any situation in his/her life, then they should be able to handle and deal with it without having to blame others for their issues.

I had heard this joke when I was a kid that goes "And God said let there be Satan so humanity doesn't blame themselves for everything, and let there be lawyers so humanity doesn't blame everything on Satan."
I feel it's a trait of humanity to shun responsibility. If he is Wiccan he would know of The Threefold Law which states anything you do will return three times. If he was having such an unlucky time, he should of evaluated his past few days to see if he had done something. You stubbed you toe, maybe your deities failed in warning you, but perhaps the universe was telling you saying those bad things about your classmate was hurtful. Third option, you weren't paying attention. That's another thing humans, especially new Pagans, do a lot; everything that happens is profound. It's not. Some things are, but the majority are not. You were late for class again, rotten luck, cursed by an enemy, or sleeping in after going to bed at 3:00am?
Many people want to be perfect without the journey, so having a fall guy - God, Satan, karma, traffic - makes us feel better. I'm not a bad person, they were being slow, I was justified. Many convert for the wrong reasons and this person clearly choose Wicca for the wrong reason. People usually go with Wicca because it's "not evil", but still curse and manipulate people in the hopes they will become pretty and popular with their crush falling in love with them in the process. Once they learn the reality, they usually get mad and leave.
As a Wiccan I try my best to look on the bright side of life, but we all struggle, we all fall, we are all human. Living Wicca, to me, means you pick yourself up, learn from your stumble, and keep going. Stomping your foot and demanding to know why a higher being didn't step in when you weren't paying attention isn't a good attitude for anyone regardless of faith. Sadly, most people are like that.
