Kristin Fontana's weekly starcast
Week of Wednesday, October 15
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

If you have ever been body surfing and gotten caught up in a wild undercurrent, than you know very well that it can create quite a panic as you are tossed about under mother nature’s control. Nothing becomes more important in that moment than to find a way to surface and access some air. Eclipses can also feel this way too as we are under the tidal influence of the moon, and yet the wonderful thing about an eclipse, is that one subtle move and one simple step can offer a rush of something brand new when and where you least expect it. Mercury is also retrograde in your opposite sign and will be conjoining Venus on Friday, Oct. 17, which bodes well for ironing out any wrinkles with loving others, as well as setting something new in motion, allowing you to feel some good forward motion again. Venus will also form a supportive link to your ruler Mars over the weekend, which will help you get to a far better place and pace with another. A harmonizing element is in place, similar to a tuning fork attempting to help you reach a more perfect pitch.
Be willing to meet half way, and it will end up not feeling like a sacrifice at all, especially with what this pact will allow you to gain!
Doubt can be a royal drag. It can have you questioning just about everything and it ends up muddying the crystal clear waters in your world. As you travel between eclipses, a stellium of planets in Libra energize your house of improvements and brings into close attention all the things that need to be fixed, starting with certain relationships. It is true for all, that when our world of others is not working, nothing feels to be working, although you do quite well on your own Taurus. Mercury is retrograding back in the sign of Libra and will conjunct your ruler Venus on Friday, Oct. 17, which will help you make some needed adjustments in certain meaningful connections. It will energize talks about what has become sorely out of balance and help you decide whether or not this is worth moving forward for you or not. We attract exactly what and who we need, even though we do not know we need it. Our relationships with others serve to facilitate our evolution, whatever they look like.
Mars forms a most supportive angle to Venus this weekend, suggesting that a mutual decision will soon be made and your confidence in the direction of your path will resume.
Simply trust in not what you think is right, but what genuinely feels right!
Everything in life is about timing. There is not a thing that occurs in this realm or any other, that cannot be reflected in the cosmic sky, and this week is no exception. The energy is high, and pronounced and it is loaded with potential and possibility, as we find ourselves in the middle of a two week window between some ridiculously powerful eclipse points. What helps things even more for you Gemini, is that the Sun, Venus, and your ruler Mercury will all be conjoined in fellow air sign Libra, along with the transiting North Node, the symbol for your destiny. Mars in fortunate Sagittarius is also forming a supportive link to this line-up. What does this mean for you? Well, you could get lucky, you could find love and you have a real and rare shot to work some magic. Simply speaking, you could get your way. It is important to lean ‘in’ when you know you have the advantage, because this helps to secure a positive shift in your favor.
So lean baby, lean, and you will take the prize!
Love is all about give and take. Within this, it is about not only sharing with another what you need, it is about listening closely to the needs of those you love. It is about setting certain emotions of expectation and attachment aside, and objectively hearing the other out. Ironically this week, you could end up getting exactly what you need, simply by giving another the space to vent the entirety of their feelings without reacting to a whisper or a word. Mars in Sagittarius is making strategic angles to a slew of planets in Libra in your house of home and the emotional body. What this translates into is that wherever sincere and honest efforts are made, even if it equals entering a space of uncomfortable vulnerability between now and the New Moon Eclipse in fellow water sign Scorpio on Thursday, Oct. 23, there can be tremendous breakthroughs within your most significant connections.
It is all about matters of the home and of the heart now Cancer, which just so happens to equal everything that means the world to you. So risk it all if necessary!
I realize when love is on your mind, patience is not your strong suit. You may be feeling something good brewing, a buoyant feeling of expectancy is in your heart, your gut tells you that what you are feeling is true and yet you wait. Saturn still trudges through your house of the emotional body and continues to test you at every pass. However, this weekend, more signs surface that give you the ‘go ahead’ and the nod as Mars in fellow fire sign Sagittarius forms supportive links to the Sun, Venus, Mercury and the North Node, the symbol for your destiny all in the sign of Libra, in your house of talk and chats. This opens up lines of communication and fixes those broken radio signals. Mercury is retrograding back through Libra and will form a conjunction to Venus on Friday, Oct. 17, to set the weekend in sweet motion. You will appear to know exactly what to say and know just what someone needs to help things get back on a better track. Your creativity is sky rocketing too and so is your ability to sell yourself with ease.
It won’t take much now Leo, so step into the zone and 'zoom zoom'!
It is free to dream, it won’t cost you a red cent. You are encouraged now to dream and to reach far beyond where you have been. You are encouraged to shoot for the moon knowing that even if you miss, you will still land among the bright stars. We are currently between eclipse points and life is energetically elevated. Life is telling you with strong certainty what it is that you want, it may also be showing you what you can’t have, at least at the moment. Never mind that though Virgo. The most beneficial way through this week is to keep your focus on the horizon, on your ideal vision for the future, without one thought that might discount this picture. It’s about keeping an inner focus on all that you value most and putting all of your energy into attracting a specific outcome. Your ruler Mercury is retrograding back through Libra and will join gift giving Venus on Friday, Oct 17, granting you some form of a cosmic kickback, a validating gesture that keeps you in the game.
Believe in yourself with an unshakeable center, and the world will lovingly respond!
It is never too late to change your mind or alter your path, and this could not be more true than right now as Mercury retrogrades back through your sign and joins your beautiful ruler Venus on Friday, Oct. 17. You may be questioning many of your connections at this time, in love, in friendship and otherwise, which is all necessary as you experience an imbalance of what is going out versus what is coming in. This eclipse window week can equal a change in affections and directions with certain others as you re-evaluate what is naturally working and fitting and those that simply take too much of your energy. Mars in Sagittarius is in your house of communication and forming an angle of great support to the Sun, Mercury, Venus and the North Node, the symbol for your destiny, in your sign, suggesting you are going to be unusually direct and honest with others, even if it stings some. You come to realize one of the greatest life lessons, that honesty is always best even if it hurts, as it will always create the right reality.
Everyone benefits by speaking the truth, so speak up and you will happily sail on!
You may very well find yourself taking a sweeping look at your entire relationship past this week Scorpio, as a team of planets in Libra are filling your house of closure and culmination. Mercury is part of this crew and is retrograding back in attempt to find closure wherever it can. The problem here, is that Mercury governs the mind, and there is a real limit to what the mind can access. It wants to fix things rationally and some things, well most things, cannot be fixed with the head, they can only be resolved when addressing that watery, timeless, seamless, boundless inner current called emotion. Mercury joins Venus on Friday, Oct.17, and you do find yourself experiencing a healing, perhaps it comes in the form of finally letting something go that has historically had a real hold on you. Mars in Sagittarius also syncs up favorably to this wing of energy and gives you an optimistic push forward into your future, leaving you with an inner knowing that something is finally and forever behind you.
The more you reach out to those invisible inner guides, the sooner you will feel the great fortune unfold!
Freedom first, everything else second. It is true, if you can access even an element of freedom in your life, everything else tends to work out. The minute someone or something tries to impinge on this natural need, everything in you becomes sorely out of balance. Something may be creating a real rub early on this week Sag but by Thursday things will feel to be clicking into a better place, as Mercury retrogrades back in the sign of Libra, first joining the Sun, and then joining Venus in your house of sudden breakthroughs and change. Even if at first you think nothing will shift and you are stuck with a certain set of circumstances with no light in sight, this weekend offers some fresh freedom-loving possibilities with creative alternative routes toward a desired destination. Mars in your sign steps in and offers a way through that you did not see coming, offering an engine of hope to carry your Soul. All of your relationships also have a shot at improving under this benevolent energetic sky, along with new ones entering that are destined to light your fire and delight you with sweet surprise.
Walk the road less traveled and you will stumble upon a pleasing encounter or two that positively alters everything!
No one likes walking around on egg shells in order to prevent a battle or a war. No one likes watching every word either in order to prevent the same. You may be feeling as if life has become a tremendous balancing act, one in which you are having a difficult time finding a simple space where you can relax, even for just a moment. The recent Full Moon Eclipse in Aries was electrically charged and it feels to have set something in motion that you cannot stop. We are currently in between eclipses and the energy is heightened, creating openings for direction changes and evolutionary gates for you to walk through. Mercury is retrograding back through your house of commitments and career and you are reviewing now how it is that you wish to dedicate your time and your future, to what and possibly to whom. Mercury joins Venus on Friday, Oct 17, and you find a place to rest on the trek and perhaps gain the feedback you need to make a big decision. Mars is hovering close, he is on call and ready as well to help you set something in motion this weekend, as he forms an angle of support to the Sun, Mercury, Venus and the North Node, the symbol for your destiny, in Libra. Weigh the pros and cons and the way will be clear.
A leap of faith at that point will be all you need!
As we enter this forecast week, you will have all the energy you need to tackle just about anything Aquarius. Action Mars is in Sagittarius and forming an angle of strength to the Sun, Mercury, Venus and the North Node, the symbol for your destiny, in fellow air sign Libra, helping you spearhead desirable pursuits and projects for your future, which may involve attracting exactly the right team of people to accompany you on your mission. The law of attraction could not be more relevant now so energize a spirit of optimism and act as if you are already there and you will be amazed at the kind of distance you will be able to bridge this week. The trends now are also tremendously auspicious for expanding your connection base and networking to help you with your goals. Themes of international influence are also quite likely whether you are planning a trip or considering work across country lines. Your ability to influence is immense and this week it may only take one word, one gesture or just one look to hook them.
So commit fully to this future vision, become it, and it will become you!
The only thing that feels better than dreaming the ultimate dream, is for that dream to come true. How will one ever really know what is possible unless they try, right Pisces? Every great thing on Earth that has ever manifested started this way, with a dream. It takes a boatload of energy in the ethers in order to take certain things to their rising potential and this week there is a plethora of cosmic support to catapult a project or a relationship forward into realms of this making. Mercury is retrograde which suggests it may feel as if nothing is moving anywhere fast, if at all, but much is happening behind the scenes. Mercury retrogrades back in your house of empowerment and joins Venus on Friday, Oct 17, suggesting that someone who has the resources and the power to help you, just may step in and offer you a valuable hand. Mars in your house of career also rises to the glorious occasion and becomes a wing man for the Sun, Mercury, Venus as well as the North Node, the symbol for your destiny in Libra, and will help you take something to another level.
The bottom line for you this week Pisces is this: if you need help, all you need to do is say the word!
