Kristin Fontana's weekly starcast
Week of Wednesday, April 1
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

An eclipse does not necessarily equal doomsday for all, but if your Soul is off track, and you are heading down the wrong road, your life will come to a full stop until you deal with whatever is in front of you. It will give you a yank and a hard tug in an effort to re-direct your course. This Saturday, April 4, a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your opposite sign has your relationship and family life high in focus. It may be that loved ones or clients in your world of work are up in arms about something and it is all coming to the surface. Certain others may be feeling that you are not listening, or not hearing them clearly, so it will draw your attention to the immediate needs of another. When everything is brought up and out onto the surface, than you can deal with reality as it is, and tremendous growth can occur. It may also be that you discover you are unresolved yourself with certain emotional matters from your own past and it is forcing you to get a good gut check on things. What matters most this week, is that you stay open to the highest approach on life's moving highway, and that you work through versus around whatever is rising up. The universe will not be shy to show you what is needed now, so watch, listen and learn.
From there, you can either do a belly flop or gallantly take the plunge!
We are traveling through a highly sensitive eclipse window. Emotions may have felt to be all over the place. events are happening beyond your control, and we all know how good that feels for the Taurus who feeds off the feeling of consistency. A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurs in your house of improvements, early Saturday, April 4, which will have you focusing on all that is unfinished, frazzled and frayed. Do be mindful not to focus on all that is missing or lacking, and instead work to find a effective way forward. Fortunately, Mars, the planet of raw energy and action enters your sign a few days before the eclipse, suggesting you will have more than your fair share of stamina and energetic supply to get everything done. Once you are set in motion, there will be no stopping you until you are satisfied with the results, and this month, the days will deliver, in particular around the third week of April when the sun enters your sign. This is a fine time to work to finish loose ends, emotionally and otherwise, and set something powerfully brand new in motion. There is no room for the dead weight of the outmoded, as you set sail into this next leg of your journey. Clean up what needs your attention and then carry on with a full raging fire as you visualize the festival of San Fermin in Spain, the Running of the Bulls.
You are in charge, but do consider the well being of others as you storm through life's streets!
A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in fellow air sign Libra, this Saturday, April 4, says “anything goes.” There is elevating support for the mutual air signs during this ecliptic surge. An unexpected opportunity may present itself, but it will require you to follow up on what manifests and carry it through. Your ruler Mercury is in Aries and is sitting on the South Node, the symbol for your past, suggesting that something from the past may be circling back so you can either finish it for good or finally set it fully in motion. Anyway you slice it, for all signs, there is a focus on relationships and the need to strike a better balance in how you manage your time in work and in play. Something this week will be tugging hard on your heart strings, igniting a new passion for your life purpose, as well as in love and creative affairs. As the surf grows wild, and you feel the world growing wild with it, observe the chaos of events and strive to understand the deeper personal meaning that you need to grasp at this time for your own ongoing awareness. There may be some manipulating players out there trying to strip you of your power and place in the world, but they've got another thing coming, as you are sure to be one step ahead.
Play your cards right and this hand is yours!
This Saturday, April 4, a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your house of home and family connections, may prove to open old wounds. With the moon being your beautiful ruler, it becomes a time when you can either rise to a paramount occasion, fueling you with greater feelings of empowerment, or a time where find yourself down on your knees. It will be a time when you are tested, when your own growth is measured by the events taking place, as the universe asks more from you emotionally and energetically. It will unquestionably increase your feelings of vulnerability and create an inner sense of being alone, but it will present an opportunity to transcend far beyond where you have been. It asks that you be flexible and present for others in areas where you have been unable to bend. Others may be calling out for help, so when you hear their cries, respond with speed, remembering Cancer, the fastest way to feeling better yourself is to help another in their torment and strife.
With Mercury and Saturn forming a trine a few days before the eclipse, you find just the right words to reach another who appears to be worlds away from being helped or fixed. That someone may also be you. If this is the case, help yourself first, and your sincere touch with another will work wonders all the way around!
It is one thing to know something deep in your veins, and another thing to hear it with your very own ears. It can be like sensing a looming loss, and then finally getting the call. Everything changes from that moment on, in a way that had not yet fully taken place. Eclipses can be like that. They can be shocking, yet also validating something you already knew to be true. You can only side step for so long until the universe throws you all the way IN. A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra has all of your relationships up for discussion, but one or two specifically come into view. With Pluto in Capricorn squaring this lunar blast, karmic content is bound to burst and potentially force a confrontation. It is best to know that whatever is making its way out, must be addressed at the moment it bubbles and boils, otherwise it will only delay the inevitable and further increase the intensity when it returns. With Saturn in fellow fire sign Sagittarius forming a strong angle of support to Aries between now and the eclipse, you will be wiser for the wear and stronger as a result of bravely stepping into the ring. As Jupiter in your sign connects effortlessly as well to Mercury on Sunday, April 5, you will come to experience an odd feeling of relief following the waxing lunar climax, as you will not have to wait or wonder any longer.
Prepare for your optimism and joy to return!
When traveling through an eclipse window, there is no telling what can happen. Instead of feeling frightful or fearful, it is important to lean on your strengths, and to tune into the energy that is in place to assist you. Themes surrounding life and death are in the air, but not without a beautiful rebirth to follow. Your ruler Mercury, in Aries, forms a stabilizing angle to Saturn on Thursday, April 2, which will help you get your emotional sea legs back as we enter the weekend. Something may have rocked you off your center and the key now is to partner with the energy that is in place to hold you steady. A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your house of how you earn and what you value may send some shock waves into this arena on and around Saturday, April 4, but with Mercury forming a harmonious angle to Jupiter the following day, certain unexpected events prove to become a blessing in disguise. Jupiter is hovering at your wing and protecting you well so it is safe to trust in what you sense, yet cannot see.
Regardless of how turbulent the tides may feel to be, know that you are sure to land on your feet!
For a peacemaker who loves nothing more than for everyone to get along, you may be feeling some angst that things will be hot and heated in your relationship camp this week, as a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your sign on Saturday, April 4, squares Pluto, in your house of home and the emotional body. Fears may be getting the best of you as you project coming conflicts and potential events that could cause a tremendous stir. It would be similar to a family reunion approaching where everyone coming is at odds or holding a historical grudge. It is incredible what families can cling to. Regardless of the emotional dynamics in place, and the challenges that you may be facing with loving others, this will a time when honesty prevails, as Mercury and Saturn align with precision just prior to the eclipse. If you are committed to making a difference, then your voice will be heard. Also, the day following the eclipse, Mercury forms a strong angle to generous Jupiter, who gifts you a surprise bonus for having the courage to step in when you would have preferred to pull out. You find a way, as only you can do, to bring a broken family or plan back together. You may initially feel as if you do not have a leg to stand on, but your inner strength and growing power deepens by the day as we progress further into April. Take charge and things come together, take the fifth and things fall apart.
The choice is all yours!
Even though you know that your hold on the past is eclipsing the joy you can feel in the present, it can be like a death grip that you cannot set free. Pluto, your ruler is squaring the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra this Saturday, April 4, which may have a way of unearthing all of your wounds and keeping them within a painful feeling reach. Yet, this also invites the potential for ultimate healing as you re-work your mind and feed it with an inner dialogue that serves to distance you from any and all of your unwanted history. It may be too that you feel you need to engage with others who have betrayed you, and re-open those doors for discussion, as you come to realize you are simply not through processing the past. Mercury, the planet that governs thoughts and the mind, sits right on the South Node, the symbol for what has come before, in Aries, suggesting new thoughts can replace that which may have leveled you in another time. Mercury also connects confidently to Saturn in Sagittarius, just prior to the eclipse, helping you see something for what it is, allowing you to move on. Following the eclipse, on Sunday, April 5, Mercury connects boldly to generous Jupiter and you receive some validating feedback as a result of letting go of the hold.
You come to know in your heart of hearts that abundant loving opportunity awaits!
It is eclipse season, so if there is one thing you can count on, it's change. You are an adaptable sign and more than most, you can roll with the unexpected. In fact, you promote it when possible and prefer to live in a spontaneous stream of consciousness. We do live here on earth however, and some semblance of order is necessary. It may feel as if much in life is the furthest thing from stable, as a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra on Saturday, April 4, is creating a hypersensitivity in people that is requiring more from you on all feeling fronts. It may also feel as if others in your life are overreacting, making mountains out of molehills, as there is a high degree of unresolved emotional content free floating in the ethers, with no where else to land except front and center. Fortunately, Mercury, in fellow fire sign Aries, is forming a stable angle to Saturn in your sign, and you find a way to communicate what is needed to help another return to a more balanced and productive place.
The benefits of your efforts are revealed on Sunday, April 5, as air pressure is released from the emotional balloon and love finds a way to save the day!
Great words of wisdom spoken by spiritual teacher Yogananda is in reference to his teachings on meditation regarding the emotion called expectation. Yogananda writes, “When you expect, you don't get, if you expect, you will be waiting a loooooooooooooooong time.” The greatest breakthroughs in consciousness occur when you least expect it, when there are no conditions linked with your giving or in your receiving. Pluto in your sign is squaring a Full Moon Eclipse in Libra on Saturday, April 4, which may have a way of rocking your world, in areas where you have placed a high degree of expectation in career or in committed relationships. It can feel as if the famous rug is being ripped out beneath you, if you are hanging your hat on an expectation that cannot be guaranteed. If this occurs in your world of work, it goes back to the old saying, “If you want something done right, do it yourself,” I am certain a Capricorn coined that phrase. Mercury, however, makes a secure angle to your ruler Saturn on Thursday, April 4, which keeps you relatively stable and dry on the high cosmic seas.
This is about finding strength within and if you are successful, you may just be surprised by your own ability to manifest some magic as you miraculously pull a rabbit out of the hat!
As we approach another eclipse, the energy is quite mixed for you Aquarius. On the one hand, a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in fellow air sign Libra, supports your most honest aspirations, and works to help bolster your belief in yourself. But Mars is entering Taurus in your house of emotions, which can create an energy of insecurity. It is true, eclipses also create that waiting for the next shoe to drop kind of feeling and there very well may prove to be some expected news traveling on the storm front rolling in. But 'every cloud runs out of rain', and there is enough support surrounding this eclipse on Saturday, April 4, to keep your head high above water. Mercury connects effortlessly to Saturn just prior to Saturday, to help keep you stable and relatively detached, regardless of what you come to learn. Mercury then finds Jupiter the day following the eclipse in your house of relationships, symbolizing the arrival of an angle on earth, sent just for you.
Get high on faith, and if it proves to be stronger than your fear, you will ride this wave safely and successfully to shore!
You are prone to easily forgive. Beyond forgiveness, you have been known to forever extend second chances to others if you feel their intentions are pure. Trusting in the motivations of others however has gotten you into trouble over time, as people have taken full advantage of your focus on the spirit of their potential versus what they are currently capable of. A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra is resurrecting themes of betrayal, loss and abandonment, as this eclipse is also forming a square to Pluto in Capricorn. It can equal any situation where you were rendered powerless for any reason but with Mercury, in your house of self reliance, forming a strong angle to Saturn, in your house of career and commitments, on Thursday, April 2, your intuition will be spot on and guide you well. Mercury also forms a trine to Jupiter on Sunday, April 5, showing you some immediate results for going after something on your own.
Let the past run out of steam so you can manifest a more harmonious future!
