Kristin Fontana's weekly starcast
Week of Wednesday, July 30
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

A true healing turn is coming with your ruler Mars now in Scorpio, in your house of the Soul, forming a progressive angle of support to Neptune, the planet that represents rising above where you have been. It is about truly taking in the bigger picture of things and coming to a clear understanding as to why you are where you are, and what you will now do about this hand that has been dealt. This week Mars also squares Mercury as well as Jupiter, the planets that rule your left and right brain. It is going to take removing a running thought pattern that continues to keep you pinned in a hard corner before the rush of relief will be able to reach your inner shores. This must occur before the real magic can happen. Do what you can to create ample space for a universal blessing and if that space is carved out, whether inwardly or in your physical life, you will be graced with a timeless gift.
You have reached a significant Soul crossing Aries. You will know it when you see it, and when you do, step forth and stand strong!
You have certain obligations and commitments that you must honor, but you may also be feeling a bit rebellious on the subject as your ruler Venus forms a square to Uranus as we enter the weekend. You may be tempted to just play ‘hookie’ or not ‘show up’ but with Venus also forming an angle of strength to Saturn, it suggests that there is payment for those of you following through on your responsibilities. You find the security you seek in certain key connections and you get to the other side of any misunderstandings when you take the time to communicate what is on your heart and mind. With Mars now in Scorpio, in your house of relationships and progressively reaching out with incredible ease to Neptune in your house of breakthroughs, you are going to feel a sweet change taking place in one or more relationship, so much so, it may feel as if there is a hidden hand at play directing your every move.
Let the invisible wind guide you. You can trust the destination!
When your ruler Mercury is moving direct, as it is now, life can move pretty swiftly, even to the point of causing you to get way ahead of yourself. At times your mind moves so fast, there is not enough time for the rest of you to catch up. As we enter the weekend, Mercury exits Cancer and enters Leo and joins intuitive Jupiter. On the one hand, these two bodies merged like this will be brilliant for brainstorming, but with their square to Mars, something in your life is pulling you into a deeper feeling experience, one that may very well stop you in your tracks. Let the teachings of the Soul rise up and reach the upper echelon of your being, so you can be ‘sure, sure, sure’, of your next step. In one strong sense, the slower you go, the more teachings you will be able to access. On the one hand, you will be on the edge of your seat as Venus squares Uranus and on the other hand, as Venus trines Saturn, you will experience a timely reprieve.
Open up to the 'other worldly' wisdom that is yours for the taking and from there you will know exactly how to proceed!
It always helps to have a ringer in the cosmic realm. It can be similar to having a player with fresh legs come off the bench to join the team in over time during a championship soccer final. You have a bit of that going on energetically now with Venus cruising through your sign. She has a way of easing the pain and taking the edge off. She knows how to brighten your day and soften your nights and as she forms a stabilizing angle to Saturn this weekend, you will be able to rest in knowing that something deeply meaningful in your life is secure. She also squares Uranus at the same time which means some good liberating growth is in store, growth that will push you past your preconceived limits. It may be a bit nerve racking as Mars squares Mercury and Jupiter but with Saturn in your camp, you will feel a relative confidence securing your center.
Mars in fellow water sign Scorpio forms a progressive promotional angle to Neptune, helping you to rise to a glorious occasion and you find yourself within reach of a personal dream!
Everything in life tends to feel lighter and brighter when the Sun is in your sign. In large part, because as a Leo born Soul, the Sun is your ruling planet. It can create the feeling as if the Sun is coming out within you. It can warm you from the inside out and facilitate the emergence of the true potential for your creative life purpose to shine. Generous Jupiter, as you know, is also now in Leo for an entire year and this weekend, Mercury joins the duo to bring even more creative flare and heart to the table. Jupiter and Mercury passionately combine this weekend and form a square to Mars in Scorpio, suggesting that in one key area in your life, you now are being asked to take an emotional risk. This may require more gumption than has been asked of you before but if you follow your intuition now, as it is at an all time high, you simply can’t go wrong.
There will be plenty to celebrate as a result!
By just covering the details versus working on the root, this only leads you back to the same place on the path. With Mars’ recent entry into Scorpio, you are going to be pulled into a deeper focus and will come to find that you are less interested in life’s peripheral distractions. You want more meaning and focus. You want to make a greater difference and you want to engage in your ‘right work’, a body of work that brings your very best to this plane of existence. Your ruler Mercury exits Cancer and enters Leo this weekend and will join expansive Jupiter. You will feel energized by that sense of having a special destiny to fulfill and as they form a square to Mars, you will be deep in thought surrounding avenues that support your Soul’s highest pursuit.
Mars will also be forming a progressive angle of ease to Neptune, the planet that governs ultimate meaning, as we enter next week, and as it does, you will experience a relationship that you cherish reach far greater depths and exceptionally new heights!
Any semblance of conflict and you tend to freeze. It is the very last thing your Soul wishes to engage in and yet as we enter this weekend, your ruler Venus will square Uranus in your house of relationships and for you this disruptive energy may be a result of your work getting in the way of your love life. Venus is gracing the stage of your house of career and will surely open some timely doors and will also be forming a secure angle to Saturn in your house of how you earn, directing your focus there, on finances and resources, and on being ready to capitalize on this opportunity that is soon to arrive. There is a high degree of focus on self reliance now and on digging down deep within regardless of what is occurring in your world of others. It is about securing your self within and within the world. This may in turn ruffle some feathers and turn some heads for people are expecting you to always be there for them, but you must first be there for yourself. My very favorite trend this coming week is Mars forming an angle of crazy support Neptune in your house of work.
A concentrated focus will produce a wave of productivity and desirable results!
Choices can be difficult when the options are many. Within those options, each choice may have its own unique benefits. I suppose in the end, this is is a good problem to have but it can create conflict and at times even creating the feeling of needing to make what feels like a sacrifice. This weekend as Mars in your sign squares Mercury and Jupiter, you may not know which way to turn or which choice to make. Either way, there will be a pinch of pain in the equation. What must be considered is the larger, long term view, as Mars is also progressively trining Neptune. This just about guarantees that your instinct will lead you down the very best possible path for your Soul at this point in your journey. It may feel as if you are being driven by some other ultimate cosmic force and for some strange reason, you begin to trust it, even though you can’t see it. By the middle of next week, if not before, it may just feel a little like flying. Once the decision is made and the path is clear, there will be no holding you back.
Let’s see that wing span Scorp!
“Everything hidden in snow, comes forth with the thaw". Mercury exits Cancer and joins your ruler Jupiter in the sign of Leo as we enter the weekend which will go far in helping you put to words unexpressed feelings and a history of inner hunches. This duo also forms a revealing square to Mars in secretive Scorpio which may bring hidden topics to light. The times are energizing the need for impeccable self honesty as well as honesty with others. As well, if there has been any private wish or desire that you have carried, it may surface now and your need to actualize it and bring it to life will be dominating your consciousness. Venus squares Uranus in Aries suggesting there may be some question surrounding whether you can trust its success, but Venus also trines Saturn, and this says it is certainly something that you can trust and will be well worth your time, attention and effort.
Even though winter has been replaced with the heat of summer, prepare for some ice to melt and for a timely truth to be revealed!
In recent times, you may have been feeling as if you have been giving all you have to give, and wondering if it is making one iota of a difference. More energy may seem to be going out than is coming back in but as Venus forms a beautifully stabilizing angle to your ruler Saturn on Thursday, July 31, you get the validation you need, either monetarily speaking or in the form of feedback or affection. There may have been a constant stream of unpredictable themes in your life, not allowing for much peace as you have found yourself waiting for the next shoe to drop. Mars in Scorpio continues to stir the Soul soup this weekend as he squares Mercury and Jupiter but I can assure you, that he knows something you don’t know and you will come to appreciate a certain upheaval when Mars follows with a trine to Neptune next week. You are clearly within range of this energetic stream of grace prior to the angle becoming complete and a certain hovering presence does have your very best in mind.
Ride out this storm Cappy and before you know it, you will feel and see the Sun swiftly finding its way into your heart and into your life!
A wonderful movie called “Leap Year’ is about a woman who grew tired of waiting for a wedding proposal from her boyfriend and so she follows him to Ireland in attempt to surprise him while he is there for a medical conference on Leap Day, because in the Irish tradition, she explains, a man who receives a wedding proposal on Leap Day must accept it. Weather interferes and re-routes her flight. She ends up hundreds of miles from her destination and everything in the world appears to be getting in the way of her plans. What shows up as painstaking road blocks becomes a course correction on her path that would positively change her life forever and for the better. That just about sums up your forecast this week. Your search for love or your hunt for more may send you through an obstacle course of its own, but it is what you discover while in the trenches that alters your entire view. Mars gets closer by the day to forming an angle of great ease to miracle maker Neptune and will complete this powerful connection by my next forecast.
What you can plan for is to experience a little more heaven here on Earth, and it may very well show up in the very last last place in the world that you would expect to find it!
“Someone throw me a bone”, I can hear you saying. You may be feeling overworked, over tired and under-appreciated as Venus in fellow water sign Cancer squares Uranus on Thursday, July 31. But on the very same day, Venus also forms a strong angle to Saturn in fellow water sign Scorpio, in your house of expansion and perhaps in the very same breath, something solid manifests as a result of your ongoing output and persistent efforts. Mercury enters Leo and joins Jupiter in your house of improvements but then squares off with Mars, creating what initially might feel like a royal set back. Mars follows with a majestic angle to your ruler Neptune and you end up not only having the last laugh but ‘taking the bull by the horns’ and directing your life with a palpable confidence.
Soon, you will trust with absolute certainty, an inevitable development, which will bring great reason to rejoice!
