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.
Hello I am neo wiccan and I wish to change my god and goddess to something else. Should I give them an offering before I do so? At first I viewed the lord and lady as Mother earth and father sky. I feel like I'm betraying them and if I do this I will be mean to them and I dont want that to happen.
Do you think If I gave them a reasonable explanation and two apples and a drink they will be okay with it?

In old traditions, long before Wicca, the belief here in England was in The Horned God (Earth) and The Goddess (The Moon). In modern times,those two were often called My Lord and My Lady. There was also The Creator (The Sun).
The belief in triple Deities is very,very old. So, I don't think you will upset any God by calling it by other names.
It seems to me that all paths have the same aim!

They're very understanding. The Lord and Lady have been called by many names so it's fine. [Many call on Isis instead of the Triple Goddess] the key is the connection. If you don't feel a spiritual connection [like a comforting feeling that this is the right path] then you're just reading words. It is nice to explain yourself, and you can always return to talk to them [I've heard of people who work with a deity for years only for the deity to back away for another to come forth]

It is not uncommon when starting out in Wicca to use general terms for the God and Goddess, such as Lord and Lady, or Mother Earth and Father Sky. Then as you progress you come to realize that the deities are making themselves known to you by different names. And that's perfectly normal and perfectly alright.
There is also the concept within Wicca of Patron deities, the particular God and Goddess with whom you have a special relationship. This doesn't deny the existence of other deities. Rather it is as if they are your close friends and the others are simply acquaintences.
Sometimes Patron deities stick with us for a lifetime. Sometimes they only come to teach us particular lessons we need to learn. The ones who come to teach us are called Tutelary Deities. They teach, and when we have learned their lesson they move on so that another might take their place.
I think the idea of thanking your Mother Earth and Father Sky and giving them both an explanation and an offering is a good one. I don't believe you are betraying them. You simply have moved on to the next step in your practices and beliefs.
The Horned Gods predate Wicca In Witchcraft for 1000s of years
I believe in the Catholic God so I moved on to Hoodoo and Trad Italian Witchcraft but the Horned Gods are not evil as some like to say they are Nature Gods...I believe all gods may exist as lesser Gods..
