explorers1Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Scorpios can hold a grudge and wait patiently for the right moment to strike. Like Sir Francis Drake the British explorer/slave-trading pirate who led the second expedition to sail around the world for Queen Elizabeth in 1577. Waiting just like he did, for his moment to strike at Spanish ships and settlements for food and treasures, you have no remorse and enjoy letting others feel the pain of your stinger. However before you start a war, or die from a fever like Drake try to remember your positive traits of diplomacy, intuition, intelligence, spirituality and sensitivity. These will help you keep your ship sailing in calmer seas.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): You are an incredible optimist Saggy, like Leif Erikson, the first European to sail to North America and son of Erik the Red, you’re always looking at the positive side of things. As strong as a Viking in the year 1000, you love the great outdoors and also have an adventurous nature. But if you want to rule kingdoms, you’ll do good not to completely turn a deaf ear to criticism or turn down suggestions about your projects from others, especially in the days before and directly following the full moon.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Everybody is fed up with your insatiable desire to climb higher and your ability to become selfish and stubborn when attempting to achieve your goals dear Capricorn. Like the Italian explorer, Christopher Columbus who sailed across the Atlantic Ocean in 1492, hoping to find a route to India but ended up in North American there comes a time, when everyone must admit they are wrong. This month will bring plenty of money making opportunities your way, but in your quest for gold and riches, be careful not to sacrifice the interest and feelings of others while fulfilling your goals.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18): Aquarians are extremely vulnerable and sensitive – we know!…And although it may seem like your surrounded by many friends in reality you rarely have close friends just acquaintances. Such was the case of Estevanico aka Black Stephen, a Muslim slave from Morocco who was one of the early explorers of the Southwestern United States. After facing hurricanes, fights with Native Americans, a ship wreck and the abandonment of his master, he was enslaved again when he finally made it to Mexico City, and later sent out with Coronado by a new master, only to be killed by Zuni Indians as they entered the pueblo they were sent to explore and conquer, supposedly the fabled Golden city of Cíbola in 1536. Moral of the story: This holiday season although you may find yourself at many clubs, organizations or forums stick to those events that allow you to enthusiastically participate in intellectual discussions. You’ll find you’re a great communicator as long as others give you the freedom to come and go and speak as you please.

Pisces (February 19-March 20): My, my, my dear Pisces…You live in their imaginary world that barely has a connection with reality as seemed did Spanish Explorer, Ponce de Leon, the first European to set foot in Florida. Ponce de Leon was searching for the legendary fountain of youth and other riches back in April 1513. Instead he was met by Native American warriors, who wounded many of his men with arrows, including himself and later died in Havana, Cuba from the wounds. Point being, its okay to look at the world through a rosy window, you might just discover something awesome, but try not to challenge reality when it comes to your finances this month, or you may just day dream yourself into a dangerous situation towards by the end of the month.

Aries (March 21-April 19): Talk about a disaster!
Your strong personality and leadership qualities wont help you one bit when opportunities arrive mid-month if you don’t judge the pros and cons of the situation before acting. Like, La Salle the first French explorer from Canada to sail down the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico in 1681, exploring may be awesome, but establishing a fur-trade along the river and making enemies with all the local nations may not be worth the risk. Think it through before making you’re final decision, and take a strong example from La Salle who was shot and killed by mutineers who left his body for the animals to eat with the rest of the expedition killed by the Karankawa Indians.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Known for your determination and zeal dear Taurus, just like American pioneer Daniel Boone founder of the first US settlement west of the Appalachian mountains. Like Boone, who even after losing two sons and a brother to the Cheyenne and Shawnee Indians, no hardship or devoid of luxury will ever stop you from reaching your goals once you’ve set your target. This time of year, however, as did Abraham Lincoln’s grandmother and grandfather, when Boone first bought them to his settlement, in Kentucky, back in 1779, you’ll do good to set your sights on a new location with a new partner who can provide a mirror for your own self-discovery.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): You’re full of duality dear Gemini and that helps when looking at a situation from a dual perspective. Like Lewis and Clark, who led the first American expedition to cross West in May, 1804, two heads are better than one. They were able to establish relations with two dozen Indian nations in order to avoid starvation, harsh winters and/or becoming hopelessly lost in the vast ranges of the Rocky Mountains. This month, your double mind set will work best with upcoming opportunities to get rid of what doesn’t work in your life, while also revealing dozens of new discoveries that await you on your path.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): Cancerians are emotional, like it or not. Like Pocahontas who got so emotional she put her head on the chopping block to save the life of Captain John Smith from her father, Chief of the Powhatan Indians, in 1613 only to run off to England with another explorer, you’re life, may be prone to depression and other mental issues. However, being around family this Thanksgiving will be a well timed pick-me-up. Though you may be indicted with mood shifts and daring enough to ride any emotional roller coaster, inside your mental theme park, you’ll need to keep your emotions hidden when family drama arises, and you’ll need all the composure you can muster if you want to get you’re mindset back in time to complete your projects by the end of the month.

Leo (July 23-August 22): You are full of energy and eager to jump into action dear Leo. Like Matthew A. Henson, first African-American Arctic explorer and navigator who with Robert Perry, and 4 Eskimos discovered the North Pole in 1909, you’ll be highly recognized and become the center of attraction for what you do. Because of your warm-spirited nature and your ability to communicate well with others, this month, in all your projects you will be highly successful. The stars are truly shining in your favor.

Virgo (August 23-September 22): You have a pretty good sense of what’s good and bad and can be highly discriminating dear Virgo. Like Baron Alexander von Humboldt, the Prussian naturalist and explorer who collected plant, animal, and mineral specimens throughout the Americas, in 1799, you’re intentions are always good despite often remaining confused about some of the tougher decisions in life. It’s a good thing you’ll have plenty of support from family and friends as the month progresses. The full moon on the 6th will lend to the beginning of a long list of decisions most important to your future, so don’t hesitate to seek the advice from people who love and support your projects.

Libra (September 23 and October 23): Balanced and perceived by others as fair dear Libra you will find yourself settling lots of disputes this month and often sought after by friends and kinfolk. However, with the new moon, you’ll have plenty phases of heightened activity but will easily slip into phases of complete inactivity and apathy as well. Like Dutch settler, Peter Minuit, famous for buying the island of Manhattan for about $24 worth of trinkets from Native Americans in 1626, you may not be able to conjure your fair nature so be careful not to become too dark or too cold, as did Minuit who died in a hurricane in the West Indies while on another trading mission in 1638.
