Kristin Fontana's weekly starcast
Week of Wednesday, August 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

With benevolent Jupiter’s recent conjunction to your beautiful ruler Venus, you may have very well felt infused with fresh hope and an energy of confidence in manifesting more of what pleases you. We are approaching a New Moon in Virgo, in your house of dreams, on Monday, Aug. 25, and your ruler Venus will be squaring Mars and Saturn in Scorpio reminding me of some lyrics in an old Jackson Browne tune called “Sleep’s Dark and Silent Gate.” He sings, “Never should have had to try so hard to make a love work out, I guess I don't know what love has got to do with happiness, but the times when we were happy, were the times we never tried.” You may find yourself trying harder than you want and as soon as this feeling finds you, remember these lyrics.

You have come of age, you are older, and wiser for the wear, and no doubt a bit worn out from the ride. You reach a pinnacle peak, a marker in time, one which you will remember as a key closing of a significant Soul chapter. You have earned a certain set of Stripes Scorp and a long trek is feeling final as Mars and Saturn conjunct on the day of the New Moon in Virgo, Monday, Aug. 25. It seems so fitting that a new way forward is here as your values in terms of how you spend your time and resources is also changing. Venus in Leo in your house of career, is receiving a square from Mars and Saturn in your sign suggesting that something has run its course, but Venus is at the same time forming a freedom loving trine to Uranus, offering you a stimulating alternative. It is truly time for a heart freeing change.
There is no medicine like laughter. You know that Sag more than any other sign. You teach this, preach this and offer it out by the handfuls, knowing its magic for soothing life’s heartache. The world lost a master of this medicine. “Robin was a lightening storm of comic genius and our laughter was the thunder that sustained him.”(Steven Spielberg) With the New Moon in Virgo on Monday, Aug. 25, opposing Neptune, you may be feeling swept away by reality of the passing of time and find yourself in a very serious place as Mars and Saturn also conjunct in Scorpio in your house of heaven and the unknown. As they square Venus you retreat long enough to access the imagery of all that holds the most meaning to you. The most tragic piece for me in the life of Robin Williams was that “He could make everybody happy but himself."(Garry Marshall) Your job this week is to make sure you know how to access that medicine for yourself. Venus in fellow fire sign Leo trines Uranus in Aries offering you an unexpected reason to smile ear to ear!
May the feeling penetrate you and then permeate everyone in your midst!
