Kristin Fontana's weekly starcast
Week of Wednesday, July 20
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

It has been a wild ride this summer so far, as your ruler Mars has been deep in the Soul trenches digging around in memories of old and also digging around for the gold. Mars is still in Scorpio but gradually picking up speed as he continues to recover steps in the recent retrograde. It is similar to an athlete getting injured and then returning to the sport. Your speed may not be what it once was prior to the set back, but by staying in the game and working on your recovery, you know it won't be long until you are back in full stride. Your ruler Mars was in secure range to the Full Moon in Capricorn on Tuesday, July 19, allowing you to reach the very bottom of a desire, and emotionally commit to seeing it through. It may have brought various vulnerabilities to the surface, but your desire to purge the past has had a way of superseding anything holding you back.
Another perk early this week, is that Saturn, the ruler of the most recent Full Moon in Capricorn, is in Sagittarius and forming a strong angle of connection to loving Venus and Mercury in fellow fire sign Leo, destined to help you passionately prosper with something that means the absolute world to you!
An inner congealing is occurring, as the Full Moon in fellow earth sign Capricorn on Tuesday, July 19, allowed you to take better control of your emotional reality in a way that brought what felt like many shattered pieces together, in particular with respect to key karmic relationships. Mars, the planet of instinct and desire, is so emotionally attuned with this lunar tide, that you can trust your inner radar like never before. It will be vital that no steps are missed in your exchanges with others that would lead to needing to circle back in the future not to mention future lives. Saturn, the ruler of the Full Moon is in intuitive Sagittarius and aligning generously to your ruler Venus and Mercury, the planet of expression, in fire sign Leo, in your house of home and the emotional body, granting you greater feelings of security and the potential for more joy in those realms. When you feel safe, you open up for more, so allow the rough edges to melt and soften and you will feel far better about some serious emotional progress that's at play.
When you are feeling secure in yourself, the rest will naturally fall into place!
You know those moments when life is feeling good, you are in the flow and harmonizing well with others, wishing you could bottle the energy for another day. Your ruler Mercury is traveling closely with Venus, the planet of peace and balance and together they are currently securely aligning to Saturn, giving you this inner knowing that you have grown, your heart has stretched beyond where it has been, and as a result, you have more to give. You are handling the chaos and the crisis better than before and the recent Full Moon in Capricorn has tested these feeling shores, that line between where the wave crashes and where the surf either sinks into the sand or returns to the sea for more. The more you communicate honestly and openly at this time, the greater the growth and the gain. Be sure to keep your heart in the conversation and you will feel far more pleased with the outcome regardless of how sensitive the subject. Mars, the planet of action, is also making a strong stance to fix something broken, so you can move on and ultimately, evolve.
Follow that primal instinct that is rooted in the pure center of your Soul and you will swiftly jettison whatever you have been dragging forward!
The Full Moon behooves and benefits you Cancer, with the Moon ruling your sign. This recent climax in Capricorn on Tuesday, July 19, will surely set up this week with some relief, as you find a mountain of pressure lifts, and in some cases, a sea of fear subsides, as the Moon starts to wane with each passing day. The ruler for Capricorn is Saturn, now in the sign of Sagittarius, connecting with sweet commitment to Venus and Mercury in Leo. You are feeling the love surround you, and you will know exactly where to turn to get your heart stroked. Mars was also strategically positioned during this lunar event, giving you more drive and determination to see something all the way through. It gives you staying power now Cancer, and a boost of confidence moving forward, as you discover there is so much you can do on your own, you are becoming your own strongest, energetic and emotional resource in every way, and as you turn in to access what you need, you impress yourself in the process.
Feel your worth, embrace your inherent value, and let it shine!
You want the sure thing Leo? You've got it! This sentiment may not be true at every turn, but it will feel to be true right where you need it most. Saturn, the planet of security and those things you can count on, is aligning in stellar ways to benevolent Venus and Mercury, the planet of communication, to help give you a strong leg to stand on and your heart a true boost. Your almighty ruler, the Sun, also enters your sign on Friday, July 22, which may very well feel like the Sun rising just after the break of dawn, shining more light in your lively self and spirit. However, Mars, the planet of instinct and desire, is still in Scorpio and getting to the very bottom of some of your deepest insecurities until August 2. However, you will be feeling better by the day, as more fire in the galaxy continues to purify the pain of the past, preparing you for a more fruitful way into a more desirable future.
Saturn gives you a taste of this truth this week!
In order to move forward, you need to see everything clearly and it all needs to be out on the table. More importantly, in order to make any long term plans, you prefer to feel totally secure. The transiting North Node, the symbol for your destiny, is in your sign and will station in the sky this weekend, suggesting you are really going to be reflecting about every detail with respect to a major decision impacting your future. You will be ruminating about it and rolling it around in your head until you feel just as you need to feel, secure. This is life, so of course we never really know how anything is going to play out for sure, but we can go in more prepared than we would have been otherwise. Saturn, the planet of stability and security, is forming wonderful angles of strength to your ruler Mercury, as well as Venus, the planet of love and what you value most, in the sign of Leo. The recent Full Moon in fellow earth sign Capricorn, on Tuesday, July 19, also empowered you to penetrate to the very center of clearly knowing where you stand in key relationships, exposing every potential weak link.
It is far better to know, than to be in the dark, and once you do know, you can get on with getting what you want!
You always do better, let alone feel better, when getting a little help from your friends, and this week you find you can depend on more than one. For some, it may be that you can also depend on family, in particular your siblings. Mercury, the plant of communication, is currently the travel companion of your ruler Venus, transiting the sign of heart centered Leo. Together they are combining with Saturn so well that it allows you to feel relief, either from the loving hand of another, or a financial lift where there is a need. Regardless of the story, you will be witnessing friends or your community showing up, unexpectedly in some cases, and in ways to offer support. New ways to connect and express yourself are encouraged as well this week, especially in those relationships where you feel like every time you try, you end up getting nowhere. Commitment is the key to any connection that makes a difference in your life. You find a way to reach someone in ways that just may change them for good, and for the better. This week offers you a beautiful way to strengthen your bond with loving others, and to receive support like never before. Instead of you stepping in to save the day, someone beats you to it.
Talk about a gift, eh?
The art of response is a very powerful energy to embody. When life throws you a curve ball, it can be natural to react to the speed at which something comes hurling at you. Yet a reaction to anything in life will be returned with equal or greater force. A good reaction time is necessary in baseball, but when we are intermingling on the field of life, it is far more productive to master the art of response, versus leading with the instinct to react. When you respond to what life dishes out, you can take your situation all the way in and measure it up and down, recruiting all of your senses, especially that sixth sense called intuition. You also feel through what may be the right way to proceed. This brings a marrying of senses that can lead to maximizing the return of what you desire. Warrior Mars is still in your sign until early August, giving you the edge to turn things in your favor, even if you are feeling betrayed or let down by certain life events. This is a karma call on all fronts so pay close attention to what you are attracting into your life. Your ruler Pluto is in Capricorn and still connecting strongly to the North Node, the symbol for your destiny. The ruler of Capricorn is Saturn, now in Sagittarius, and is currently connecting boldly to Venus and Mercury in Leo, in your house of commitments and career, equaling a power move, one that will ultimately benefit you, even if it does not necessary feel that way now.
Trust in natural timing!
How much can you handle and hold? You may have been asking yourself this very question as of late. The plate of responsibility has grown exponentially as you continue to take on more. Saturn is still in your sign for a good long time, and you are feeling full well the gravity of its presence. The recent Full Moon in Capricorn on Tuesday, July 19, is ruled by Saturn in your sign and forming impressive angles of support to loving Venus and the mental engine Mercury. This allows you to think and in some cases, love your way out of any problem that may feel to be too big to hold. This aspect will also let you know clearly who is in your camp for good and it will go far in forming a buttress of support for the heart, while at the same time energizing a spirit of new beginnings that fuel you passionately forward. The transiting North Node, the symbol for your destiny, stops in your house of career this weekend, as you feed more of your vision for just how to move forward. Make sure to wrap that future in gold, as Saturn in Sagittarius' strong angles to Venus and Mercury in Leo wants only to secure the very best for you.
Let the Gods and Goddesses know what you want and then start taking steps to make it so!
'You rule the school Cappy', as Saturn in expansive Sagittarius makes a direct hit to loving Venus and Mercury, the one with all the great ideas. It may feel as if your heart and your mind are coming together to make so much sense of those deeper feeling pulls of the Soul. Pluto, the planet of empowerment, is in your sign, and your ruler Saturn is reaching out to secure agreements and to strengthen your stance in key connections. This is about building relationships to others who have the power to help you, which includes those connections on the other side. There are times when life becomes too much for us to tackle on our own, nor was life ever intended to be a journey alone. Your support in the ethers will prove to be bar none, so why search anywhere else for support this week? You will also find by recruiting the higher ups in the stratosphere, they will help you in the power plays that occur on this earthly plane. The more balanced and certain you feel within, the more those life events will unfold to suit you.
Trust in what you feel but may not see, and it will lead you to the land of plenty!
This week is in fact where the rubber meets the road. With Mars in recent stress to your ruler Uranus, flare-ups may have been heated and hot, as eruptions of all kinds were destined to play out. Mars is now starting to wane off that point of extreme stress, but he makes sure to do a burnout on the street in order to make a memorable mark, a memory your Soul could not possibly forget. These points also signify benchmarks that reflect your ongoing evolution, so that mark could feel like a liberating turn. There is tremendous strength in the sky, as Saturn in Sagittarius forms welcomed angles of support to Venus, the planet of love and harmony, as well as Mercury, the planet of communication. The cosmic support that you will feel most leading into this week involves your relationships with others, as you feel new relationships solidify and old relationships contribute their fair share and more to the growing connection. You focus on what you have and what means the very most to you, and you experience the bounty whether it is in the eyes of one or in the eyes of many.
One pair of eyes will prove to be more than enough!
You do know firsthand where 'all work and no play' leads Pisces, to royal burnout. Hopefully you have been filling your cup with more of what feels good, all that is simply needed and necessary for your body and Soul. Venus, the planet of pleasure and balance, along with Mercury, the planet of expression, are joined and forming a highly motivating angle of support to Saturn, in your house of commitments. This suggests the better you take care of yourself and the space that supports you, the more productive you will be in your work. The message here is that if you feed yourself first, there will be more energy and output to support your work as well as your relationships. This trend also reflects making sure that the work you do in the world becomes a labor of love, as you discover the true beauty of how it feels to love what you do.
Keep it simple and your inner space will become a world of wonder!
