Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio 2019

The upcoming Mercury retrograde cycle is especially potent, as it stimulates an ongoing discussion or negotiation with Saturn and Pluto – conjunct January 12th 2020 at 22′ Capricorn. What is being worked through now has very significant implications not only for the upcoming Sun/Mercury cycle, but also sets the stage for many developments over the course of next year.

Between January 10th and 13th, 2020, the Sun, Mercury, Saturn and Pluto all conjunct in Capricorn, signaling a momentous surge of energy and initiation where ~22′ Cap resides in your chart. It would appear that the events, conversations and choices that are made over these coming two months clear the decks and set the stage for what will emerge at this critical point at the dawn of 2020.

From Scorpio, Mercury is incredibly subjective. Over the course of the pre-retro shadow/retrograde/post-retro shadow phases, you may notice substantial shifts in personal consciousness about a particular topic. One day things appear a certain way, then a short time later, completely different, even though superficially nothing has changed.

What has occurred is an internal reorientation to the situation, and how you feel about something or someone is likely to go through a large degree of transition between now and December. An especially useful date to note is October 18th, when information or an insight arrives that indicates the topic of the learning curve revealed during the upcoming cycle.

Putting something into motion on this date is not entirely fruitless, so long as you are prepared to watch this thing completely mutate and evolve into a distinctively different shape between now and December 1st, when Mercury makes its’ third and final transit at 19′ Scorpio. It’s here the pieces really fall into place.

The significance of 19′ Scorpio is that it is the position of the mid retrograde conjunction of Sun – Mercury (November 11th) and thus indicates the primary topic of the resolution being sought after during this phase. At this time, a major piece of the puzzle is revealed and resolution begins to move into frame.

Saturn and Pluto have a strong influence throughout the retro cycle, but are working in a supportive placement to Mercury, suggesting long range and even endemic issues can be resolved between now and New Year through patience, determination and the in-depth analysis required to see them through. Clearing the way for the next cycle in early January (which coincides with a Cancer eclipse in precise opposition) is the critical message – and opportunity- the Universe is dealing right now.

October Horoscopes

OCTOBER FORECAST:

The plot thickens in October, with numerous Scorpio transits setting the stage for an immense transformation that occurs between now and the end of the year. First up is the ingress of Mercury into Scorpio on the 3rd for a prolonged visit that lasts through December 9th, due to retrograde activity over the first threes weeks of November. Mercury will turn direct as Mars moves into Scorpio, signaling a deep dive into the issues activated within this region of your personal chart. 

Venus from Scorpio October 8th – November 1st intensifies the emotional realm. Love becomes passionate and requires a significant intimate attachment in which to develop. Financial matters are also highlighted, and the more you can come to agreements with others and merge resources, the more productively you will experience this transit. The Scorpio New Moon on the 28th is a catalyst for a significant development – in exact opposition to Uranus in Taurus – there is likely an unanticipated event associated with money or resources. 

It’s possible an unconventional twist occurs around this date or the 7th (Mercury opposite Uranus), 12th (Venus opposite Uranus), or on November 24th (Mars opposite Uranus). These transits trigger appraisals of a financial nature, while activating the polarity of what you have and what you share. Event will come off as sudden and compelling, and require dramatic reorientation along the lines of who has and who gives what. There can be unique or innovative adaptations made to existing agreements or in negotiations that occur at these times. 

Mars in Libra underscores all this with a diplomatic approach, seeking a fair deal for everyone at the table. While the Mercury retrograde phase will likely bring matters to a standstill for a few weeks of review, by the last week of November the ambience intensifies as these matters clarify and regain traction. Between now and then, evaluating what you value personally and expect from other in close, committed and financial relationships is a fantastic and productive use of the energies available. 

Generally speaking, most people are only available to hear that which reinforces what they already believe. Although transits to Uranus may appear disruptive on the surface, they provide an opportunity in which to expand your perspective – or even experience an epiphany – if you are willing to hear and heed the message. 

OCTOBER HOROSCOPES:

ARIES 

March 20 – April 19

A Full Moon in your sign anchors you to the changes you have encountered this year, particularly in relation to long range goals or your profession. You could get a signal you still have something to overcome, perhaps a difficult person or situation that is acting as some kind of obstacle to your advancement. A key partnership is driving you to a necessary decision or conclusion. Financial matters are up in the air at the moment. Postpone agreements until late November or December.

TAURUS 

April 20 – May 20

The relationship vibe intensifies, with a lot going on within or surrounding your closest partnership/s. There could be some crossed signals, particularly during the New Moon at the end of the month, though this is just as likely to turn up a compelling new and unexpected attraction for you. You are busy on the job and need to maintain balance through exercise and mindful dietary choices. Productivity can only be as good as you feel, and burn out is possible at the end of the month if you push too hard.

GEMINI 

May 21 – June 20

Emphasis shifts towards work and productivity this month, though Mars transiting your pleasure sector has you keeping a finger on a special love relationship or creative prospects at the same time. There are likely to be some unexpected developments on the job, and the upcoming Mercury retrograde suggests a change of heart or direction for an assignment or position. While an inter-office romance could be enticing, this one goes kaboom around the 12th, so tread carefully.     

CANCER 

June 21 – July 22

Creativity runs high in this phase, though the upcoming Mercury retrograde suggests second thoughts or a change of heart in matters of love, perhaps resurrecting a relationship or artistic project in order to bring it to a proper conclusion. The 21st is one of your most romantic dates of the whole year – wear your heart on your sleeve and see where it takes you! Developments are otherwise completely unexpected and could throw you for a loop, as friends may seek to become lovers or vice versa.     

LEO 

July 23 – August 22

This is a very active and enticing period for your social life, and a night class or seminar could produce some interesting contacts and connections for you. Your domestic/professional axis is lit – unexpected developments in either realm compels reorientation in the other. The New Moon in Scorpio factors largely for a big decision about your residence or personal life. It could take a few weeks to shake out all the details (Mercury retrograde impacts this area for you) but you get there in the end.     

VIRGO 

August 23 – September 22

Your mind is on your money this month and there could be a few lucrative opportunities in store, though some of these seem to come at the cost of your personal pleasure or even a love relationship. You can articulate your feelings to a spouse or partner quite magically on the 21st. Make your choices carefully in social situations, as certain conversations could get a bit prickly. Dissent seems to be the order of the day. With your ruling planet coming out of phase, you could be a bit distracted in the coming weeks. Make room for change. 

LIBRA 

September 23 – October 23

The Full Moon mid-month signals a requirement to deal with endemic personal matters in order to advance a close relationship. You are energized in this phase (Mars in Libra) to deal with a difficult matter that has been problematic all year, if not longer, and resolve a residential issue once and for all. Otherwise financial agreements (most likely with others) are at the top of your list with a reappraisal of your earnings and income set for the weeks ahead. It’s time to state your value – self belief will carry you far.    

SCORPIO 

October 24 – November 21

This is likely to be a highly enjoyable month for the most part, though you are best off waiting at a minimum until the New Moon in your sign at the end of the month (and even better until the end of November) to draw any kind of conclusion or enter into commitments. With partners throwing you willy-nilly this is either a very exciting phase, or an incredibly disruptive one, especially while you navigate profound inner changes and appear to be in a period of soul searching. 

SAGITTARIUS  

November 22 – December 21

Finding balance between your personal and private life is essential this month, as a socially charged period coincides with a highly introspective atmosphere. Make time for some R+R, but also for your associates to keep the peace. From next month, vibes are more pleasurable (Venus in Sagittarius) though for the time being there is inner work to be done before you get there. The Full Moon in Aries has a special message for you regarding a love relationship – a financial obstacle needs to be overcome to make the most of it. 

CAPRICORN 

December 22 – January 19 

The plot is thickening in your professional realm with a transit of Mars that lasts through late November. Assert your goals, but try not to come off abrasively, as this will deter people from your cause. There are a lot of people in your currently expanding network who want to help you succeed (people love to connect with someone taking action on their objectives) and by December you are likely to see the fruits of your efforts fall into place. A shift comes mid month that signals where you have to release something. Just let it go.  

AQUARIUS 

January 20 – February 18

Dynamic culminations in your professional realm stimulate your ability to reach for your dreams over the coming weeks and months. Developments feel meaningful though there will be some kind of rewind over the first few weeks of November while you reappraise your course of action or the route you are taking to accomplish your long term goals. People at some distance are significant somehow, and you might find allies abroad that enable you to expand your viewpoint considerably. 

PISCES 

February 19 – March 20

October is sort of a strange brew of feeling quite at ease with yourself while simultaneously undergoing profound internal transformation. Moods and intuition run quite strong in this phase, especially mid month over the Full Moon phase, sensitizing you to the changes you are going through. A professional development occurs around this time that offers perspective. The destination remains unknown through late November, while you reassess your real desires for growth and personal development.   

September Horoscopes

SEPTEMBER FORECAST:

September is a super productive month in which long range goals and topics associated with profound inner evolution can be addressed. Helpful alliances from Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars transiting in Virgo to Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn all enhance the ability for developing objectives that require attention to detail and have a basis in the business or material realms. Directives established during the eclipses that occurred in January and July move forward swiftly, but to make the most of the potential opportunities that lie in store you must remain attentive and proactive. This is not a time for leisure, but one of accomplishment and for seeing tangible results for your actions.

While Leo season emphasized confidence, Virgo season is about competence. Building new skill sets, or utilizing existing ones to propel larger scale projects into action (or even completion) is the theme of the first few weeks of September. Mercury and Venus are in very close range throughout the month adding a highly creative and collaborative ambience. This fortuitous combination indicates that people are willing to work together and come to agreements that are favorable for all parties involved. A triple conjunction between Sun, Mercury and Mars over the first few days of the month can offer efficient solutions to highly complex systems or problems.

On the 14th Mercury and Venus enter Libra, shifting the atmosphere towards more aesthetic concerns. Libra is gracious, artistic and diplomatic. Communication, especially regarding artistic or creative endeavors is emphasized. Towards the end of the month, Libra planets make  adversarial contacts to Saturn and Pluto. The Sun will repeat these patterns in October. 

These testing and dynamic influences serve to show how well you have managed to resolve the intense themes Saturn and Pluto are currently representing in your chart, bringing them to a boiling point, but also to a critical culmination and even a breakthrough. Though challenging on the surface, there is so much to learn here – and if you are feeling friction, it’s time to examine  how these issues can really finally be resolved. Mars, still in Virgo, provides a stabilizing influence,  underscoring the atmosphere with a more pragmatic approach to what might arise in this otherwise volatile phase.

Professional matters that have stagnated come back to life. Coupled with a highly productive atmosphere at work, you can accomplish a great deal throughout September. From mid month your closest partnerships become emphasized and a New Moon on the 28th signals a fresh beginning in an existing relationship or establishing a new, significant connection with someone. Sensitivity is triggered around this time, and it might be difficult to let your guard down. Let love in.

TAURUS 

April 20 – May 20

Pleasure and passion projects are emphasized this month, making it the perfect moment for leisure, recreation and romance. You are likely to feel a strong sense of vitality and can move your personal objectives forward quite easily now. If educational goals stalled over the last few months, these now get back on track. Gears shift mid month as work assignments pour in. A creative project or charming colleague makes the work days enjoyable. Those in the job market have good prospects.

GEMINI 

May 21 – June 20

You may be somewhat consumed by the past or your personal issues. This is an appropriate period to address these concerns. Relations with family are harmonious and you should feel comfortable leaning on those closest to you for support. A concerning financial matter can be resolved over the coming months if you take it one step at a time. From mid month romance is highlighted and you’ll enjoy flirtations or even a love affair. Creativity is also highlighted, and poetic expression likely.    

CANCER 

June 21 – July 22

Socially this is a lively period, while also favorable for writing, learning and exchange of ideas. Your mind is focused and it’s easy to get your point across, making negotiation and contract agreements run smoothly. A relationship that may have stagnated can be renewed with a greater sense of purpose and assurance now, especially if there were recently conflicts that caused a rift. You feel a better understanding of what you want now. Domestic and personal matters take on greater significance from mid month.

LEO 

July 23 – August 22

Earnings are emphasized throughout September, with several lucrative work opportunities available to you, though keeping you incredibly busy. If you have been uncertain about a job prospect, it’s likely to turn in your favor after the 18th. From mid month a lighter social ambience prevails and you are likely to be busy with parties or other special occasions. Jupiter continues to stimulate good vibrations in your romantic and creative realm. Enjoy what you have worked for.    

VIRGO 

August 23 – September 22

It’s your time, Virgo, as your sign plays host to a rare stellium of planets. Sweeping and positive new beginnings triggered by the New Moon in your sign last month gain momentum and you will derive a great deal of satisfaction from pursuing your personal projects, allowing your heart’s desire to guide your course. A love relationship that had been on hold can show signs of growth from the 18th. A more financial emphasis comes into play mid month and into Autumn.           

LIBRA 

September 23 – October 23

The vibe is behind the scenes this month with so many planets tucked in an etherial part of your chart. Privacy, resolution and connecting with the mystical are priority for the time being. Next month Mars will enter your sign for a once in two years visit, though you’ll start to get signals from mid month that signs of life are already stirring. Transits of Mercury and Venus in your sign highlight your best qualities and signal love could be on the way. A residential or personal matter that has been in a holding pattern begins to move forward.

SCORPIO 

October 24 – November 21

This is a fabulous season for you socially, and with numerous events and introductions abounding, you might even turn up and enticing new love connection who shares your ideals and goals for the future. This is especially true after the 18th, when the mental holding pattern you have been in since May finally gives way. From mid month there is a more tucked away vibe, spiritual rejuvenation and release is possible over the coming weeks. Take some time out.

SAGITTARIUS  

November 22 – December 21

A lot of action taking place at the top of your chart indicates stellar developments for you professionally. A financial situation that has been stuck begins to move forward from the 18th. You’ll find numerous opportunities this month to bolster your income through a practical and pragmatic approach. The more clearly you define your values, and what you are willing, as well as not willing to do, the better the outcome. A beguiling domestic situation is also in frame. If there have been issues with flatmates or family these could come to a head this month.

CAPRICORN 

December 22 – January 19 

September is easily one of the best months of 2019 for Capricorn. (You’ll LOVE December, when Jupiter enters your sign.) Harmonizing Virgo transits coupled with your ruling planet Saturn going direct on the 18th indicate a release valve is being opened, and that the difficulties of the prior months are fading in the rear view mirror. You are urged to dream big now, and from mid month your career axis becomes highlighted, placing you in a favorable light. Opportunities for growth and the realization of your dreams is possible now.

AQUARIUS 

January 20 – February 18

The emphasis is on profound inner transformation right now. It’s possible this is manifesting through a deeply committed partnership, as the area impacted also rules your most intimate relationships. A vexing issue from your past begins to see resolution from the 18th, when Saturn stations direct in your house of secrets. A far lighter vibration comes into play after the 14th, as planets move into your sister sign Libra. Vitality and enthusiasm return and you feel ready to expand into exciting new frontiers.

PISCES 

February 19 – March 20

It’s a really special month in store for Pisces, with a Full Moon in your sign on the 14th bringing critical personal matters to culmination. A significant partnership is equally in frame and it’s likely you are swept up in a whirlwind of romance, triggered by the New Moon at the end of August. You and this person are building dreams for the future together, but be wary not to promise more than you can deliver. Neptune from your sign looms largely in the forecast and can provide stunning moments of serendipity, but equally disappointment where people may not have been above board in their dealings.

August Horoscopes

Leo Season

MONTHLY FORECAST:

August is a respite from the heavy, transformational vibrations that were stimulated in July. There are no eclipses, no hard nodal contacts and no heavy outer planet transits to contend with. It’s like breathing a huge sigh of relief! Leo planets make fortunate aspects to Jupiter, which resumes direct motion on the 11th. A far more harmonious outlook comes as the challenges that have been overcome begin to yield positive outcomes. Leo emphasizes play, self expression and ardent love. The more you can tap into these, the more fruitful and enjoyable the month will be for you.

A strong romantic overtone prevails throughout August, as in addition to Leo transits, Sun conjuncts Venus (19’ Leo) on the 14th and Venus conjuncts Mars (2’ Virgo) on the 24th. New cycles for love relationships (as well as for financial or material concerns) begin on these dates. The Virgo New Moon on the 30th connects to Mercury, Venus and Mars while also forming a perfect trine to Uranus. The lunation amplifies practical considerations and seeks to take a meticulous approach to matters of the heart and within the professional realm mutually. Alliances are likely to be formed for the sake of taking on new projects or towards innovative endeavors. 

Jupiter retraces it’s steps between now and November, having gone retrograde in early April. Second chances to realize an objective connected to educational goals, teaching, lecturing, broadcast, media or long distance travel emerge. By December, when Jupiter moves into Capricorn, the targets change dramatically. Make the most of the exploratory nature of next few months and especially the harmonious collaboration between the transits of planets in Leo during August. Virgo season will be very busy and productive, so make some time to live life and enjoy things for a bit!

You’ll spend the first few weeks of the month behind the scenes, building yourself up to one of the most incredible seasons you have seen in quite a while.

LIBRA 

September 23 – October 23

In a year where there has been no shortage of challenges for you, this month is easy breezy. Social life provides exciting avenues for exploration of ideas and enterprises.

June Forecast

I will be taking a hiatus from weekly horoscopes as I prepare to go back to school this Summer. Personalized readings and extended forecasts are available for subscribers on Patreon! Cheers!

MONTHLY FORECAST:

June into July easily represent some of the most dynamic turning points of the year, so get ready for a wild ride! Mars sets the tone at the very opening of the month, conjunct the position of the July eclipse at 10’ Cancer. News and clues could be revealing of what is in store. From the 10th – 14th a conjunction to the North Node accelerates time lines and stimulates an unexpected, but likely fortunate turn of events or change of trajectory. Mercury follows suit a few days later, and an important conversation or decision occurs regarding the future, setting the stage for big developments. 

From the 20th, Mercury falls into it’s pre- retrograde shadow period, communications begin to slow or stall while the direction of an association, project or enterprise is reconsidered. Look to 23’ Cancer – 4’ Leo in your chart for where this will impact you personally, as this is a process that likely unravels between the end of June – mid August. The upcoming retrograde cycle is colored by a conjunction to Mars (in Leo) and a square to Uranus (from Taurus) suggesting a hot and volatile ambience is present throughout the Summer that has strong effects on communication. Tempers intensify and there could be mental aggravation, especially if you are naturally prone to headaches. 

Sun and Venus transit in Gemini, making this a good month for learning new things or attending social events. The tone is generally light hearted and favors movement and communication. Mercury and Mars from Cancer stimulate a more conservative or inbound approach to things, so if you are more naturally a home body, you will find ease. Mars will oppose both Saturn and Pluto this month, and there could be a genuine breakthrough where unresolved issues stemming back to this period last year (Mars – South Node/Saturn and Pluto conjunctions) are finally ready to coalesce and see resolution. There is friction present in these aspects, meanwhile, and hostility or stiff opposition could just as equally be a factor. 

Jupiter and Saturn combine with Neptune, repeating aspects that occurred at the beginning of the year and renewing interest in a story line that has not yet come to pass. There is optimism present but also enough grounding energy present through Saturn to make something real now. Second chances are available to try something that may have been evasive previously, and likely converge this Fall. The Gemini New Moon (June 3rd) and Sagittarius Full Moon (June 17th) amplify a sense of movement. There is a lot to take in this month and it’s likely some very important matters are either settled or put into motion. In some ways this could prove to be stressful, but equally a very stimulating time. Take time out periodically to recharge and take on what is important to you personally, not for the sake of adding more to a full plate. It’s easy to burn out under these kinds of energies, hang in there!  

NEW MOON 12’ 34” GEMINI June 3rd

FULL MOON 25’ 53” SAGITTARIUS June 17th  

JUNE HOROSCOPES:

ARIES 

March 20 – April 19

Professional matters require a special touch in June – July, with a contentious atmosphere likely present, you do best to keep to yourself as much as possible. Domestic and personal situations provide an important counterpoint, and especially if it was difficult to make changes to problematic circumstances last year, these can now be addressed. The embers of a long range goal are stoked and take on new presence in your life, though it could take a few more months to get all the necessary pieces of the puzzle to fit.  

TAURUS 

April 20 – May 20

You’re happy as a clam while Venus finishes a beneficial transit in your sign, though from the 9th a more financial emphasis comes into play. The New Moon on the 3rd highlights exciting prospects. Be especially wary of what you agree to over the 23rd-24th, as optimism is inflated and a deal could turn out to be a real stinker. Socially this is a vibrant and bustling period, though communication could be strained and lead to arguments around the 19th. Engagement with new ideas and friendships are a highlight this month.

GEMINI 

May 21 – June 20

There are important culminations in your key relationships this month and if you have had any reservations you could feel compelled to say “I do!” or otherwise come to realize a partnership has reached it’s final destination. Venus from your sign makes you far more inclined to reach out to love and an especially enticing vibration on the 23rd could send you on an exciting adventure with a mysterious and compelling love interest. Also highlighted are financial matters, with some really potent opportunities in the mix.

CANCER 

June 21 – July 22

Your personal well being is highlighted, and evolutionary growth is possible this month. A lot develops in June, setting the stage for a major culmination next month. Partnerships can be demanding in this period, and it’s up to you to accept the challenges present or to walk away. In some ways this is about learning to stand up for yourself, and eliminating situations that are limiting or hindering your individuality and personal development. Being fearlessly self protective is recommended now. Don’t let ‘em push you around!

LEO 

July 23 – August 22

There is a quietude this month into next, with a lot of planets nestled in a very private portion of your chart. This is definitely a good time to detox or hit the reboot button, and early Leo especially, going through the pangs of exasperation brought on by the Uranus square, likely benefits the most from this advice. Upcoming Mercury retro falls initially in your sign, so give yourself a solid couple months to figure out where your head (and heart) are at before you sink your teeth into that next big thing. From early August you are in a far better position to make the impact you seek to. 

VIRGO 

August 23 – September 22

Career prospects could be exiting right now, though you have to really feel your way through some convoluted situations this month if you want to make the most of what’s on offer. Changes for the better are occurring at home and you might see a situation come to a conclusion. The period from the 16th – 19th could prove difficult as you clash with your love interest or children. Though these conversations are likely to be stressful, it is necessary to come to some kind of agreement in the interest of moving forward. A partnership evolves and deepens in this phase, justifying your optimism. 

LIBRA 

September 23 – October 23

This is a very potent period for you professionally, and especially where circumstances may have not been conducive to seeing the growth you would have liked at this time last year, you are currently in a much better cycle to see fruition for your aspirations. Some of these will come at a personal cost and there could be some noise from those closest to you about the direction you are heading in. Follow your intuition regarding people and opportunities but be conscientious about agreements you enter into mid – month. 

SCORPIO 

October 24 – November 21

A love relationship can coalesce brilliantly under these auspices, though there could equally be some mixed signals in store, especially if you are involved with someone at a distance. Letting your guard down and letting someone in is favored from the 9th, as Venus in Gemini enhances your intimate connections. A situation you may have only dreamed possible in the early days of the year starts to see some movement. Professional matters will be a significant feature over the coming months, making this a good time to settle your personal affairs.

SAGITTARIUS  

November 22 – December 21

The Full Moon in your sign on the 17th portends a significant personal turning point in your year. A lot seems to be going on in your most intimate life meanwhile, and a relationship could equally have a compelling quality to it that needs your full attention. A very important financial resolution or objective you put into motion at the beginning of the year is showing some signs of growth. There could be some to and fro this Summer regarding a business negotiation or settlement, but significant developments this month suggests where prosperity can be found.

CAPRICORN 

December 22 – January 19 

June presents some very significant developments in your closest relationships, as your spouse and/or a business partner present you with substantial evolutionary opportunities. Very consequential agreements are made and despite some challenges to see things eye to eye, negotiating with a view to mutual success and satisfaction provides a major upside for you. You discover through this connection that you have outgrown elements of your lifestyle or persona, many of which you likely confronted around this time last year. Karmic events and a relationship have the potential to change life in a heartbeat. 

AQUARIUS 

January 20 – February 18

Pleasure is emphasized this month with Sun and Venus in Gemini, giving a boost to your love mojo and assuring a positive climate for self expression. A New Moon on the 3rd opens the door. Work and health are also a big priority and really significant opportunities are in store especially regarding productivity or a new job. If you have been trying to keep a secret or clinging to the past this could be a challenging period. The universe is sending in some pretty strong signals it’s time to let go of something and the more open you are to do so, the easier it gets. 

PISCES 

February 19 – March 20

Your self expression is on overdrive – this is a highly fortunate period for love relationships and your creative undertakings. Events could take you by surprise and into uncharted territory! There could be some challenging circumstances surrounding what is developing, and it’s possible your friends don’t share your enthusiasm for your involvements. You can diffuse a situation by hearing out the perspectives of others, but then deciding what is best for you, in the here and now, and going after what feels right. 

Weekly Forecast 5/12-18

WEEKLY FORECAST:

A palpable shift in the atmosphere occurs this week as Venus shifts into Taurus and Mars moves into Cancer. The constellations which were dominated by hot, masculine energies become cooler and take on a more nurturing tone. Venus and Mars link up favorably from Aries to Gemini right before the shift takes place. If a relationship has hit a bump or you’ve simply been to busy to catch up with your partner or love interest, this is the perfect moment to carve out some time for a leisurely get together. If you’ve been waiting to make a move and ask someone out, this is also a favorable transit to take action on that impulse. 

Mercury is a bit behind the pack in Taurus, and makes highly productive aspects to Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. Objectives connected to business are reinforced and negotiations are favored. Momentum builds on enterprises that were established in the beginning of the year. Towards the end of the week, Mercury harmonizes the Nodal Axis and an effortless transition from the past to the future occurs. You can utilize the skills you already possess to build towards fruitful outcomes in the upcoming months. 

This is all underscored positively by a brilliant culmination during the Full Moon in Scorpio at the end of the week. A double emphasis on endings and transformation occurs at this Lunation, highlighting the themes of release and renewal. The Full Moon represents a moment of vitalizing emotional richness, a feeling of completion. Venus conjunct to Uranus from Taurus at the same time signals extraordinary new horizons associated with prosperity and abundance. 

The more you are willing to let go of, the more free you are to follow these fresh impulses. With the Scorpio – Taurus polarity highlighted, the themes of death, rebirth and reconstruction are activated. This a very auspicious moment in which to evaluate what matters most to you and reconfigure the balance between what you have and what you share – security and resources can go through a genuine metamorphosis if you are willing to open yourself to trust. 

Consider this in the context of not only material or financial resources but also that of love and its’ expression through commitment to someone. It’s just as possible to covet money as it is your own feelings, usually out of self protective instincts. This is the moment to let emotions flow out and towards the one(s) you care for most. Be fearless in that expression! If it’s time to release an intimate attachment, or at least change the rules of engagement, this is encouraged by both the Full Moon and the electrifying and ground breaking Venus – Uranus conjunction. Go for what you want and give it all you’ve got is the message this week.  

Weekly Scopes 5/5-11

WEEKLY FORECAST:

A brilliant idea comes out of the blue this week, most likely connected to an ingenious way to make or save money. On the tail winds of a very positive New Moon in Taurus, a fresh approach to resources is highlighted. Venus from Aries makes the same challenging aspects to Pluto and Saturn that Mercury did last week. Relationships can be fraught with tension or uncertainty. 

A situation that has lived past its shelf life will likely come to an end. If you realize a situation is simply going through a challenging time (and many of these challenges are likely to be external – not necessarily a comment on the condition of the relationship,) stay optimistic as this storm will pass. 

The Sun from Taurus brings an atmosphere of determination towards the attainment of long term success. Imagination and inspiration underscore anything you take on and enhances the potential for a great outcome in a few months time. Follow your intuition and stay receptive to any opportunities that emerge.  

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES 

March 20 – April 19

You feel a strange mix of optimism and restriction while a romantic relationship can be sweet one day then sour the next. You can make incredible progress financially this week, especially where you have been putting in the extra hours to realize a professional goal. A promotion or raise can be on the table, though could take an unanticipated form. Patience sees you through this week, so keep your eye on the prize.

TAURUS 

April 20 – May 20

It’s a positive and productive period for Taurus with news arriving from an unexpected source that really gets you going. This can also be a restless period, though very harmonious for your social and personal relationship. An inhibition or feeling of inadequacy can provide challenges to your esteem, and if you get defensive you are even more likely to provoke confrontation. Take some personal time out if you need to.

GEMINI 

May 21 – June 20

Socially there can be challenges and you may realize it’s time to part ways with friends or associates. Your intuition is running strong and you may desire to pull back from the hustle and bustle of daily activities somewhat to tune into your inner voice. Unexpected treasures live in your unconscious mid right now and can provide revealing insights. An adjustment is required to make the most of a fantastic opportunity with your partner on the 9th.    

CANCER 

June 21 – July 22

Professional adjustments pay off in the long run, and a job offer you get on Thursday can pave the way to success. Social events are very pleasurable and associates can offer good advice that help you plan your future. You could meet someone very different or even unusual who offers a fresh perspective or insight. Connecting with someone at a distance or from a different background stimulates romantic feelings.    

LEO 

July 23 – August 22

You continue to shine professionally, though those involved with media or PR campaigns do better to wait for the time being. A launch right now would not be advantageous or meet with tough critical reception. A desire to do something very different (or to do things in a different way) can lead you down an unconventional path. Follow a hunch this week, it could take you pretty far.    

VIRGO 

August 23 – September 22

Your personal life has a sweet and sour quality to it – up one day and down the next. Only take on your share of responsibility in the situation and leave others to theirs. Financial improvements are in the mix, with news reaching you Thursday that could make you very happy. An unexpected visitor (or urge to travel) hits mid week. Romance beacons from a distant shore.          

LIBRA 

September 23 – October 23

The road to love can be fraught with obstacles, though a positive disposition will work wonders in even the most difficult situations. You continue to realize what (or even where) you have outgrown a situation, and cues you get this week could be vital reminders it’s time to move on. New and exciting financial prospects could enable the transition unexpectedly, stay light on your toes and be prepared to take swift action.  

SCORPIO 

October 24 – November 21

Watch your health this week as difficult energies (particularly in your work environment) can precipitate psychosomatic illness. Partnerships go through ups and downs, and you could connect with someone unusual or in a very unexpected way. There could still be tensions, but there are also very harmonious conditions. You can make a commitment towards the end of the week or see your partner prove their devotion.

SAGITTARIUS  

November 22 – December 21

Financial restrictions continue to cramp your style, though Thursday has some really enticing overtones. A heart connection can grow and even the pressures you experience can actually make your commitment deeper. If you have been trying for a raise or negotiating for a new job there could be good news by the end of the week. A offbeat assignment can provide an exciting change to your daily routine.

CAPRICORN 

December 22 – January 19 

Keeping your heart open is the only way to go right now, Cap. If you have had reservations about letting someone in or get close, it’s time to check those feelings and examine where past disappointments are inhibiting your ability to love and be loved. Really enticing experiences are possible when you let down your guard a bit. Unexpected developments could change the game very quickly, but in ways that make you feel really good.       

AQUARIUS 

January 20 – February 18

Feelings of inadequacy could provide a stumbling block or two this week. You are most likely to see it creep up in casual conversation, and could come off awkward if you try to backpedal on your words. Your personal life is more harmonious and positive developments at home or even privately provide you with regenerative moments of peace and solitude. You could come to a big, but very unexpected decision this week. 

PISCES 

February 19 – March 20

 Try to give yourself as much wiggle room as possible in your finances, as unexpected expenses could provide you with some trying moments otherwise. Socially the ambience is fabulous and this is a great time to connect with your crew. Jump on an unexpected invitation that turns up mid week. This one has glamorous overtones and boosts your creative flow. Check out an art show or musical performance for inspiration.

Stargazer Astrology May

STARGAZER MAY FORECAST:

Uranus looms largely in the May forecast – so expect for the unexpected, especially where matters of security are concerned. Brilliant ideas are hatched under these influences, but the erratic and unpredictable are equally featured and can provide undesired, or at the very least disruptive, developments. Early Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius horoscope factors experience this the most intensively. The 8th (Mercury conjunct Uranus) and the 18th (Venus conjunct Uranus) are potent for initiating new ventures or relationships that have an unconventional or futuristic flavor to them. These cycles last for about a year so pay close attention to what begins around these dates. Expect news about new products or standardization connected to FinTech or Blockchain technologies, payment automation and virtual wallets.  

Lunations in Taurus and Scorpio further emphasize resources: from Taurus – what you can do for yourself, or self reliance, and from Scorpio – what you can create and accomplish together. Neither the New or Full Moon are significantly aspected by aspect to other planets or the nodes, so you can work with these how you choose to. With the New Moon (May 4th at 14’ Taurus) you want to plant seeds or begin something associated with the material growth you seek and cultivate your inner confidence.

A Full Moon at 27’ Scorpio on May 18th signals the return on efforts that began in early November of last year. You see signs of fruition for a goal that was established last Autumn and likely features themes of intimate relationships and business partnerships. A catharsis comes complete.

A major breakthrough on the 5th loops back to an enterprise that was established around January 6th 2018, during the conjunction of Mars and Jupiter at 17’ Scorpio. As these two fiery behemoths connect in opposition from Gemini to Sagittarius, massive ideological conflicts can erupt, so try to hang on to a bigger picture world view if Chicken Little comes running down the road. The atmosphere is explosive and incendiary!

On a more personal level you should see turning point or culmination where the initiatives formed early last year are showing signs of success for efforts you have put in. If so – good work! On the other hand, if you realize something isn’t going to come out as you wanted, you have the opportunity to go back to the drawing board or scrap what isn’t working based on what becomes abundantly clear following this critical alignment. 

MAY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES 

March 20 – April 19

You feel much more in your element this month, just in time to catch up to the marvelous developments on offer professionally. Hard work and an obstacles you overcame earlier this year showed you had grit and place you in a position to boost your earnings now. Hold your most important negotiations, meetings and interviews between the 15th – 17th. By the end of the month news reaches you about a promotion or raise. At the same time, you may seek out unconventional sources of income, since Uranus looms large this month and you are seeking a measure of autonomy where earnings are concerned.

From mid month, domestic matters require attention, and intuition about where and how improvements can be made resonates strongly within you. The more willingly you release the past the easier it is to make room for what is in store. Between now and July there are going to be significant changes in your residential and personal life, some unexpected, though looking back you will see these have been simmering since last Summer.

Your powers of perception and persuasion are especially enhanced from the 15th – 17th. You are far more in your comfort zone while Venus enchants your region of the sky from mid month. Love mojo is strong and gets reinforcing vibes in the later part of May.

A situation can be tense on the 7th, though what you overcome together makes you so much stronger in the end. Emphasis is placed on relationships with the Moon activating the Me – You axis, culminating in a Full Moon in Scorpio on the 18th. You could be making a long term commitment, and if you are seeking to tie the knot this is a fabulous time to do so!

GEMINI 

May 21 – June 20

You are still operating from behind the scenes for the most part, coming into your own from the end of the month (specifically on the 21st) when Sun and Mercury link up in your chart, hitting the reset button on your life. All the motivation you have felt to get going on a personal project over the last several weeks finally coalesces with circumstances that make it possible to build some traction where it is has been in short supply.

Finding the right balance between your work and private life is crucial with turning points on the 4th and 18th making clear what habits need development and those which have outlived their shelf life. Intuition runs strong, especially in the middle days of the month. A gut feeling has a lucrative pay off if you are willing to trust your instincts.

CANCER 

June 21 – July 22

Friends and lovers are the emphasis this month and you are likely to enjoy some harmonious times socially or through cultivating your connection with someone who tugs your heart strings. The Full Moon on the 18th is ideal for putting yourself out there, feelings run deep and strong and seek expression. Mars in your sign from mid month gives you energy but also has a confrontational edge to it. Your passionate nature is invigorated, but equally your temper! (This is more abrasive next month, when Mars forms challenging aspects to heavyweights in opposition to your sign from Capricorn.)

You have good indications mid-month to set the record straight with your significant other and reach a mutual understanding. Use this period to mitigate issues that might arise down the road. The 2nd and 9th are highly favorable for negotiating a professional promotion or new position.

Your consistent efforts pay off and a promotion or new position is possible.

You get signals that you want to do something quite different and may take off in an unexpected direction. These could be hard to suppress and you are encouraged to explore your options.

Your instincts point you in the right direction.

Professionally you get much needed assistance on the 14th. Planning and career development shapes the four months following the Sun – Mercury conjunction on the 21st. Make a plan and take assured steps towards reaching a milestone by your birthday.

Socially the ambience is exciting, and you enjoy sharing activities with a partner or could hit it off with someone while attending an event or party.

Events this month could produce unexpected developments, but will equally be invigorating.

By the time of the Full Moon in your sign on the 18th, you can really put past matters to rest. Mars from Cancer generates enthusiasm to move forward as the concerns and obstacles of the prior months swiftly fade away.

Spa and sauna treatments are invigorating and restorative. You can draw the curtain on the past during the Full Moon phase on the 18th.

Where endings and release occur you are making space for new and improved conditions in the second half of the year, notably from August when Jupiter is direct in your sign again.

It’s a very enjoyable month in store for Cap, kicking off with a highly sensual and alluring New Moon in your arena of pleasure on the 4th.

Conversations you have between the 15th – 17th are very productive. You can set the record straight and go for exactly what you want by wearing your heart on your sleeve. A turning point in a love affair on the 22nd can open the door to making a significant commitment by the end of the month.

The atmosphere is a bit more contentious in June, so make the most of what’s on tap for May!

Your inner resources provide assistance and enable the navigation of a transition that could otherwise be somewhat disruptive, at least in terms of what you are used to. A job provides a lucrative upside in the second half of the month, though it could be a demanding and hard working period for you.

Things get more exciting after the 21st, and you’ll seek new avenues for self expression. You gravitate instinctually (and intellectually) to people and circumstances through which you can demonstrate your creative abilities and feel free to finally have some fun.

EXTENDED forecast available here!

Stargazer Weekly Horoscope 4/28 – 5/4

WEEKLY FORECAST:

This week could be a bit of a clunker, as an upbeat social atmosphere is moderated with continuous reminders revolving around topics of duty and obligation. Mercury is a busy bee, and moods fluctuate from buzzy and optimistic to discouraged or fatalistic. Numerous conversations and correspondence dominate the daily affairs, and the pace is likely to be brisk and exciting!

Mercury from Aries can possess a confrontational tone, and especially when aspecting Saturn and Pluto mid-week, things are likely to get a bit prickly. Not that you should back down from a stand off should one emerge, just be aware that others are equally tense, and perhaps this has nothing to do with you or even the situation in question. If a breaking point has been reached, it could be productive to give something that isn’t working a good heave-ho, just be mindful of your words as contentious vibes promote reckless behavior.

Mercury square the Nodal Axis on Wednesday is an especially pivotal moment and potent for releasing the past effectively. Although a profound sense of nostalgia can accompany this transit, fear or sadness over what is being (or has been) left behind, remain encouraged that something better is coming to take its’ place. Where you feel hindered or uncomfortable – are precisely the circumstances you are meant to walk away from. 

Saturn retrogrades on Monday, in an ongoing conjunction with the South Node that lasts through the end of the week. This aspect occurs again over the first two weeks of July, and finally one last time in late September, shortly after Saturn goes direct at 13’ Capricorn. Karmic issues that run deep can be accessed and released now. Return on something that has been worked towards over the last 9 or 18 years is also possible – particularly look at trajectories that were established in mid September of 2013. Under this influence, obsolete structures are dissolved to make room for what is next. 

An earthy and sensual New Moon in Taurus at the end of the week underscores this process and stimulates the cultivation of fresh prospects and perspectives. Material matters gain in importance and see beneficial improvements now. Geminate your goals for the next six months under this auspicious influence and see stunning results in November.  

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES 

March 20 – April 19

You see signs that you have outgrown a professional role, as you come to recognize a significant aspect of your life is coming to an end. While something provides a certainty and sits neatly in your comfort zone, you also are aware that you are capable of more, even (and perhaps especially) where you defy the expectations of others. A reconfiguration of your trajectory between now and September provides a new beginning. July is especially revealing and enables the necessary endings be made to move forward.

Stargazer Weekly 4/21-27

SECOND THOUGHTS

WEEKLY FORECAST:

Saturn and South Node meet up this week, dredging up karmic baggage in an icky double whammy. The aspect lasts through the end of the month, at which point Saturn goes retrograde at 20’ 31” Capricorn. The series of events (and the realizations that accompany them) that play out over the coming days offer several indications that something isn’t working, and this is most likely connected to over attachment and obedience to the past or tradition. Exploring fresh impulses and living in the moment is required in order to release that which is no longer serving the attainment of future directives. 

In many ways this process resembles the toxic consumption motifs from the No Face storyline in Miyazaki’s animated masterpiece Spirited Away. (Studio Ghibli 2001.) I won’t go into mad detail or analysis here (just watch the film if you haven’t – it is everything ✨) but essentially No Face starts eating anything and everyone to satiate its’ longing for a girl named Sen, who cannot be seduced with material gifts, because her heart is pure. When cured, No Face begins to purge all it has consumed and returns to a natural state, that of a kind and gentle being, when greed has been relinquished.

Bad No Face!

Contemplate where this allegory could be playing out in your life this week – are you engaging in greed or consumption to mitigate spiritual emptiness? In it’s lowest vibration, the earth element covets, at it’s highest it builds. From Capricorn the theme of power is emphasized. Why you build is as, if not more, important than what right now. Saturn going retrograde appears to retreat to correct and modify the strategy and objectives and resumes direct motion while again in close conjunction to the South Node this September. By then you are finally ready to let go of something that has been weighing down heavily upon you and release a burden or restriction, though this evolutionary process begins now.  

The way through is engagement with the directives of the Cancer North Node. Travel the waters edge, spend time with children or nurture your own inner child.

Sun conjuncts Uranus in Taurus, on April 22nd, for the first time in the current 84 year Uranus cycle, coming off the tail winds of a pretty dramatic Full Moon. While electrifying, it’s not precisely a Party on Wayne moment, as this could have very destabilizing effects on economic and security issues, and reinforces some of the indications of Saturn – South Node, signaling the birth of a new order. There is a measure of restlessness and urgency towards change. Pay close attention to what you initiate at this time since this cycle plays out over the next year. The area of your chart containing 2’ Taurus is implicated and where you are likely to experience the mutually disruptive and liberating qualities of this influence. 

As Mars squares Neptune towards the end of the week, profound feelings of uncertainty may be revealed in situations that are delicate or tenuous. To the extent that Neptune is the projection of an ideal there can be a disappointment if that ideal turns out to be founded on illusion. Mars from Gemini indicates a great deal of skepticism and can easily burst a bubble here, or at least needle insecurities. There can also be new paths for exploration regarding a creative or mystical topic, and even if these seem a bit awkward at the onset, let curiosity guide you for a moment and see where it takes you. This is a testing and pivotal period for something initiated December 7th, (Mars conjunct Neptune – 13’ Pisces) and requires reorientation towards this topic in order to grow and evolve it. 

While beguiling at moments, this week has it’s share of high points too. If you feel down in the dumps about something, it’s likely tied to the Saturn – South Node contact. Remind yourself the only way out is through and make an effort to deal with this even if it requires extraordinary patience or even resilience. Mars – Neptune can encourage dissipation in the face of conflict and here it’s also important to recognize that indulgence in altered states is unlikely to solve anything. This is less a time for outcomes than inner exploration and with Pluto also going retrograde this week, the mood is particularly subterranean. But otherwise, Party on Garth.

TAURUS 

April 20 – May 20

You are motivated by some unusual influences this week, and seek to make changes to your appearance or routine. This will be a work in progress for you that culminates in a brilliant new way of life for you in December. A financial reality check towards the end of the week could be in store if you’ve been burning through cash as fast as you have earned it. Thursday is also crucial for realigning your long range goals with reality, at least for now. Just because you can’t get at it now, doesn’t mean you won’t, eventually.

GEMINI 

May 21 – June 20

You’ve made concerted efforts towards financial resolution since the beginning of the year, though with progress unlikely through the end of Summer. The next few months are more of a review of how successful these efforts have been. Stumbling blocks towards the end of the week reveal where work is still required, especially if you are beginning to lose confidence in regard to a professional prospect. Socially this remains a vitalizing period and you can find pleasure while developing your relationships.

CANCER 

June 21 – July 22

A situation concerning your close partnership reached some form of critical mass this week. It could be someone you are close to is going through a rough time and you get to play the person they lean on. At the same time they might just need some space to sort out their stuff, in which case give it them. In some cases it might be time to call it quits, or at least temporarily step back to review a situation. In a few months you know where you stand. Positive professional developments provide a nice distraction.

LEO 

July 23 – August 22

You feel urgency to make a dynamic shift professionally. The desire for autonomy or finding a new way to do things is compelling. Take advantage of the initiative you feel or opportunities presented, especially if they push you out of your comfort zone, as this culminates brilliantly in December if you play your cards correctly. What isn’t working (at least in your favor) is the day to day job or assignments you might rely on, but currently are not enabling your personal progress. A look within and trusting your instincts provides the guidance you need.

VIRGO 

August 23 – September 22

You will have to spend the next few months reviewing and relying upon the progress you have managed to make within a love relationship since the beginning of the year. If you find your heart space is being weighted down by junk from the past it’s time to get unstuck. Bad experiences may have left bruises on your soul, and the way through is to rekindle your love light by becoming enamored with enchantment again. Converse with your inner child this week, s/he has advice that can alleviate the pressure you endure.

LIBRA 

September 23 – October 23

The fundamental overhaul of your root base, particularly since the beginning of the year, requires integration now. The immense progress you have made is internalized as you identify the endemic and constraining patterns you have managed to release yourself from. Some more gross stuff can come up this week that makes you question if you have really come as far as you thought, and the way out is to hold the view of where you are headed rather than looking back at what was. Confiding in your partner and expressing love is also especially fruitful now.

SCORPIO 

October 24 – November 21

A way of thinking has outgrown it’s use. Things you learned, possibly very early in life, are preventing you from experiencing bigger and broader perspectives and it’s time to let them go. Between now and your birthday, you have an opportunity to realign your perspective in a more productive and beneficial way. Partnership could feature a dramatic (but exciting) turn of events this week. The more you try to control the situation, the more difficult this one is for you. Work and daily life continue to be full of pleasurable interactions.

SAGITTARIUS  

November 22 – December 21

You feel positive and outgoing right now and a romantic relationship could really be taking off for you. Being able to confide in someone brings you closer. Nurturing your creative abilities also enhances feelings of happiness and pleasure. Personal matters could be a bit more concerning, as something that has been concealed emerges and signals a turning point in a relationship towards the end of the week. Financials require attention and reworking. The next few months produce a substantial change here, how you feel about yourself and what you believe you deserve plays a huge role in the outcome.

CAPRICORN 

December 22 – January 19 

While you have undergone substantive transformation this year, quite likely coming into your own and embracing your personal power, this process remains incomplete, with the next few months providing the opportunity for reclamation. To balance this equation, something requires release – in equal measure – and you get strong indications this week (especially on Thursday,) of precisely what that is. The shock and tribulation that arose in January coalesces in July. The more graciously you accept change now the greater your come up in a few more months.

AQUARIUS 

January 20 – February 18

Socially this is a vibrant period for you, and enticing invitations or outings are in store. One situation that could turn prickly is your love life, especially if you or someone else has not been particularly forthcoming about a dubious financial matter. As you slough off the hindrances of the past, weight lifts from your psyche that has been oppressive. A sharp turn of events in your personal life or at your residence points to new circumstances on the horizon. You might get pushed out of your comfort zone, but ultimately these will serve to liberate you, so go with the flow.

PISCES 

February 19 – March 20

Some relationships are built to last and some just aren’t. You’ll get signals this week that you’ve outgrown certain associations as you come to realize that certain friendships just don’t line up with your future objectives. Parting can be sweet sorrow, and it could be a few months before you fully resolve your endings. A contentious situation can arise with a flat mate or family member, especially if you’ve been too permissive and endured inappropriate conditions, it could be time to lay down some new ground rules. Financials get a boost, meanwhile, and you can add to your earnings if you keep your eye on the prize.
