Kristin Fontana's weekly starcast
Week of Wednesday, April 23
Kristin Fontana immersed herself in Western medicine in her 20's, and by her Saturn return was hit hard with the all consuming feeling "There must be more to life than this." After arduous Soul-searching and inner pleas to answer the question,"Why am I here?", she landed in a lecture given by Jeffrey Wolf Green on Easter Sunday 1999. She dove fast, hard and deep into Evolutionary Astrology and never looked back. Kristin has dedicated her life to this great work of the Soul using this unique and powerful paradigm. She specializes in helping Souls connect with their creative life purpose and in uncovering their true nature. She is also deeply moved to help unearth the true power of the feminine in all of us. She is available for readings and can be reached by email. Her website is www.kristinfontana.com

We are knee deep and all the way IN the energetic pocket between eclipses, reflecting the potential for revolutionary change. Somewhere in your world, life as you know it is morphing, in particular with respect to the players on your path. At times things have to reach maximum density in order for the resistance to be blown off of you. Similar to a jackhammer to cement, it can take a true shake-up to shake things off. Yet when there is that kind of velocity and intensity, true change can finally and forever manifest. Late Monday in the west, on April 28 , a new moon eclipse in Taurus in your house of what you value most, will be making a supportive link to Jupiter, the planet of abundance, on one side and to Neptune, the planet of miracles, on the other. Something you may have only dreamed about may just have a real shot at materializing. Consider this eclipse point to reflect a new starting line.
Ready, set, go!
I hope you are preparing well for your new life. A new moon solar eclipse in your sign late Monday, April 28, joins Mercury for a fresh and solid start. This eclipse also happens to be forming angles of great ease to generous Jupiter on one side and dreamy Neptune on the other, giving you some heavenly support at each wing as you set your life in flight. Anything that came before that you do not wish to carry forward with you can officially be done, so take this opportunity to clear the decks of negativity and bad habits that are dimming your light and keeping you from experiencing the joy that your Soul rightfully deserves. In the midst of it all, Venus, your ruler, is forming a beautiful trine to steady Saturn prior to the eclipse on Friday, April 25, allowing you to feel more secure during this energized period as a result of a key relationship that you discover you can truly trust.
You work well on the solo path but everything in life means more, "the good, the bad and the ugly", when we can share it with someone we love!
Nothing feels better than being able to observe events in your life that are making a measurable difference. Nobody likes to poke along life’s highway, especially you Gemini, for it becomes nothing more than marking time. We all love to see our path improve and become enhanced because of our efforts. This Friday, April 25, Venus connects easily with Saturn, the planet of commitments, suggesting something that you have put your heart and Soul into is going to produce some visible results. Late Monday, April 28, we will have reached the second of two eclipses that represent a new launching point as a new moon solar eclipse in Taurus joins your ruler Mercury, energizing your house of completion. You will feel as if a great deal is ending while at the same time new life is beginning as this eclipse is supported on both sides with Jupiter and Neptune flanking the solar burst. If you are on the right path, these symbols reflect an immensity of support. If you are not, the truth will be exposed to you and the obvious next step will be shown.
Prepare for clarity to be revealed and your journey to deepen with greater meaning!
You may have been asking yourself recently, “What’s it all for? Is it really worth the ride?” The recent cardinal cross has been bringing you to various pressure point turns, clear forks in the road and a real need to make some serious decisions about the remainder of your life, called your future. Are the people in your life contributing to your growth or holding you back? One of my favorites songs along these lines is called Gravity, by Sara Bareilles, “ I live here on my knees as I try to make you see that you're everything I think I need here on the ground. But you're neither friend nor foe though I can't seem to let you go. The one thing that I still know is that you're keeping me down." As all over the place as something may seem, hope is on the horizon. Someone is about to change in ways you never saw coming with this new moon solar eclipse in Taurus in your house of sudden shifts making a strong angle to Pluto in your house of relationships late Monday, April 28. This eclipse also forms a supportive link to Jupiter in your sign and to Neptune, the planet of rising above where you have been. I can already hear you singing, and some of you even screaming, “Hallelujah”!
It's about time!
Remember how scary it was when you were first learning to swim? You were standing by the edge of the pool, watching every one else but you, having the time of their life, refreshed after baking in the hot sun. You knew you had to find a way to safely make your way into the water. Once you learned how to become one with the cool liquid bath and move freely at will, a sense of empowerment emerged and you may have even felt after mastering it, that there wasn’t anything you couldn’t do. You are in the process of mastering something with the coming new moon solar eclipse in Taurus up at the top of your chart late Monday, April 28. This solar tide is also forming an angle of strength to Pluto, the planet of the Soul, as well as angles of ease to Jupiter and Neptune. There cannot be more cosmic clout to help you perfect a plan and pursue a cherished endeavor.
Trust Leo, in all that you were created to be, and then show us your swan dive!
As you go along the way of life, habits and tendencies are created similar to creating a groove in a record. Over time, the groove becomes so deep that when the needle drops down, it plays the same tune, over and over. If you have allowed certain self defeating and at times paralyzing thoughts to create a groove that you would prefer to change, then this is your week Virgo. This would also also apply to those connections that challenge your psyche and you want nothing more than to promote some positive change. This Friday, April 25, Venus, in your house of relationships finds Saturn in your house of communication and you commit to a new way of being with an old connection. Late Monday, April 28, your ruler Mercury, joins a new moon solar eclipse in fellow earth sign Taurus in your house of truth and your natural way in the world, while forming a stunning angle to Pluto, the planet of the Soul. You align with your potential in a powerful way, realizing the full breadth of what you can be and you commit to a plan that will help you rise to this honorable occasion. This is where the rubber meets the road.
Kick it into high gear and fly!
There are energetic windows when real problems can be solved and there are periods when it seems as if nothing will work. It is eclipse season and as a result, anything can happen, events may surface that not even in your wildest dreams could you have predicted. We are between eclipses, the recent full moon eclipse was in your sign and it brought your relationships into full glaring view. We are now approaching a new moon solar eclipse in Taurus and it is highly supported. But before we do, your ruler Venus, will form an auspicious angle to dependable Saturn on Friday, April 25, and you may just get a feeling that miracles, large and small, can happen for you too. Late Monday, April 28, the eclipse in Taurus is joined by Mercury in your house of the Soul, and will be forming three angels of support; the first is a trine to Pluto, the planet of empowerment, the second two aspects are called sextiles, equaling angles of ease, to generous Jupiter, and Neptune, the planet of the ideal. At the very least, you will experience yourself taking a giant step forward and you won’t even have to say, “Mother may I?” You are in charge now.
Leap with conviction and the respect you seek, you will gain without question!
Emotions are not rational. It does not matter how hard you try to understand them with your mind, they can often never make sense. We are in between eclipses and in this window of time, the feeling waters can intensify. Emotions may be surfacing that you did not even know existed but now that they are making their way up and out, you are going to be able to do something productive with their hold as a new moon solar eclipse in your opposite sign late Monday, April 28, will be revealing all that you need to know about the way you feel for a certain other. This eclipse will form a penetrating angle to your ruler Pluto in your house of communication, so keeping an ongoing dialogue will help meter out some of the emotional extremes and turn them into soulful meetings of the heart. Jupiter and Neptune have also stepped in to bring light and levity to your life, as they forms angles of grace so prepare for a true loving kickback. Prior to the eclipse, on Friday, April 25, Saturn in your sign will align with loving Venus in a healing way, encouraging you to let go and be open for a positive turn of events.
The trust you seek in another, starts with trusting yourself!
Eclipse season can have a way of stripping you down, of emotionally wearing you out. You may have every intention of kicking back one evening, only to have it interrupted by something that has to be dealt with pronto. However, as we approach the second of two eclipses that occurs late Monday, April 28, Venus will form a radiant angle to Saturn on Friday, April 25, and you will get the peace you need for the day. It will help you get your bearings back before all heck breaks loose again early next week, specifically as it relates to all that will be calling for your attention. You will be pulled in directions however that will ultimately support the path of your future yet some of those details may have a way of overwhelming you. This is about building a better you, about bringing more of yourself out there and into the world, so all of what is being required of you now will be worth the tedious trek. Your way to prosper this week is to recognize those moments in time when you can dip into those simple spaces and be still, where you can re-charge and re-fuel for your next challenge. You truly are a loving force to be reckoned with Sag.
Be ready on a moment’s notice to mount that horse and ride like the wind!
It does not matter how unpredictably outrageous things have been in recent weeks, life finds a way of working itself out and you are reminded of the true goodness of being alive. Your ruler Saturn aligns seamlessly with Venus as we enter the weekend, offering you some timely relief where and when you need it most with friends of like mind who prove to anchor you in their recognition of the individuality that you so beautifully bring to life’s table. The coming new moon solar eclipse in fellow Taurus is designed to bring you back to earth as this eclipse is joined by Mercury and forms a stabilizing angle to Pluto, the planet of power, in your sign late Monday, April 28. Wherever you have felt you have lost your touch, it will be regained as you find your strength as well as your confidence by getting in touch with your creative capacity. You will also discover that all that may have fallen away or morphed in some fashion was not meant for your journey ahead. This eclipse is also receiving the blessing of wisdom holder Jupiter and healing Neptune as they harmoniously straddle the solar tide, serving as invisible guides offering unconditional love and support.
What more could any Soul ask for?
Energy is a crazy thing. Once you know how to manipulate it, it can lift you up or take you down. There are times when it feels we cannot control where the current flows. Once any uncontrollable emotion sets in, it can take off like wild fire, especially during eclipse season. You were designed with a special gift Aquarius. Being that your ruler is Uranus, it suggests that your thoughts and the energy behind them carries a greater velocity than the other signs and this is why you have been labeled, the trend setter, innovator and the genius. You think ten steps ahead of the rest of us and considering this truth, it is important to know that any negative thought can also travel at light speed. As we enter the weekend, Saturn and Venus support a more steady and stable emotional pace which is ideal considering a new moon solar eclipse is set to create an energetic charge late Monday, April 28. This eclipse occurs in your house of home and matters of the heart and fortunately will be supported by Jupiter, the planet of optimism and Neptune, the planet of taking the high road. Wherever you are in desperate need for a ‘cool change’, to really ‘breath the fresh air’ and make room for better days, the time has arrived. All it will take is one positive thought in the right direction.
Rest up before you set sail!
With Venus still traveling through your sign, even in the middle of chaos, you will be feeling inwardly supported. This energy will make a stronger impact in your life as Saturn in fellow water sign Scorpio and Venus partner as we enter the weekend, creating a greater feeling of security in your relationship and/or financial world. It will be a good feeling to come by and you will be wishing to experience more from wherever it came. Late Monday, April 28, a new moon solar eclipse in Taurus is joined by Mercury and forming an impressive angle to Pluto, the planet of the Soul. You could not be in a greater position to secure a change that you need to see happen.
