Weekly Forecast 9/23 – 29

A QUESTION OF BALANCE

WEEKLY FORECAST:
This week culminates matters initiated two weeks ago under the auspices of the Virgo New Moon. Where the previous lunation exposed certain illusions via Neptune, the Aries Full Moon is likely to be more a reminder of where circumstances, as well as ourselves, have come up short. With the ingress of Sun and Mercury into Libra, the Neptune influence diminishes. Whatever delusions may have been punctured fade into the rear view making it time to move forward. Currently Saturn moves into the frame and bears down as a strong influence here, making a very tight square to the Aries Full Moon (conjunct Chiron) and the Sun (conjunct Mercury). Ouch! Get out the bandaids!

This can of course go several ways, but regardless of the precise direction or realization which occurs for you personally, a certain reality check is in store for all. With Chiron involved and highly sensitized by the Full Moon (and in square to Saturn as well) a great deal of vulnerability is exposed. Chiron in Aries seeks healing through learning independence, conviction and initiative. Since Mercury is closely involved in the configuration, there can be a therapeutic conversation that occurs here. Or there can be a pointed disagreement that seems to poke at your soft spot.

Libra seeks to keep the peace, but also demands you hold up your end of the bargain. Aries tendency to remain free (aloof) could produce a conflict of interest, especially when held under the harsh, critical gaze of Saturn. No ones getting away with anything at this point and a critical matter that surfaces now will demand remediation. With tense square energy present, it can also just be the kick in butt needed to start to make some progress on long range goals that may have stagnated since earlier in the year.

Saturn, incidentally, will exit it’s retrograde shadow phase in mid December, so any actionable decisions made now are a genuine second chance to achieve what you began to cultivate or build between January and mid April but may have way-sided over the late Spring and Summer months. Where you feel the most pressure is where the work is required.

So while the atmosphere is likely to be strained or produce difficult or even depressive moments in the coming days, there’s also an opportunity here to acknowledge one’s responsibilities and begin to take small but assured steps to reaching one’s goals. Do so with the greatest possible regard for your feelings (Moon-Chiron) and while nurturing your own need for autonomy and that of others as well. Those with personal planets or angles between 27’ Pisces/8’ Aries will likely be the most impacted right now – treat yourself with extra special care.

Sun and Mercury will harmonize positively with Mars in Aquarius, currently conjunct the South Node, as well as the degree of the Aquarius eclipse that occurred in July, enabling insights towards making progress on what may have transpired in that time frame, but which has remained in a holding pattern since. The release required (South Node) to move forward becomes quite obvious, but can be more readily articulated and therefore more easily acted upon. Look to 4’ Aquarius to see where this lands in your chart – a story line regarding this region of your zodiac that has been stuck since June is finally reconciled.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

Extended weekly forecast with daily aspects and overview available for subscribers on Patreon

ARIES March 20 – April 19

There is a brittle quality this week that can inspire you to review and revitalize your career objectives. Partnerships feature and a committed relationship to your spouse or business collaborator will also be impacted. To the extent this relationship is helping or hindering you is up for question and where you are being supported and nurtured, you will decide to make a deeper commitment, otherwise – jump ship. Friendships and alliances that have past their expiration date will mutually be sacrificed mid week. Better times ahead from Thursday.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Intuition could be quite strong around the Full Moon phase on Monday, though the message revealed could produce an uncomfortable wake up call regarding longer range objectives and where you may have fallen short in moving towards them. A professional objective has been outgrown and midweek you may have an insight that compels you to cut your losses. The love life is providing more pleasurable experiences, and single Bulls looking for partnership can find it. Bear in mind this story goes to and fro between now and the end of the year.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

A culminating moment with groups and organizations with whom you collaborate presents a critical turning point in your awareness of an intimate or financial matter. The situation is rather complex at the moment and it would appear that the attainment of your most heart felt wishes is somehow being held back by a commitment or shortage of resources. You may use this instructively if you allow the pressure you feel to instigate a productive change in how you handle your income and assets. Thursday is divine for nurturing your love connection, enjoy!

CANCER June 21 – July 22

Much seems to be at stake this week for you professionally, though you need to work through some very endemic long term issues with a spouse or business partner to make the most of it. A very delicate atmosphere this week makes it possible to reframe your career objectives if you tune into your sensitivity surrounding these. Personal and domestic matters also require attention, and Thursday is ideal to see developments on the home front that will offer genuine emotional satisfaction. Concern over an alimony, loan or legacy gets settled, finally, midweek.

LEO July 23 – August 22

Vexing matters regarding your job or work life are in frame this week, and you will seek a breakthrough here one way or another. Maintaining a diplomatic approach and keeping the lines of communication open are your best bet towards making the changes you desire. A partnership may come or go this week, the culmination of a drawn out scenario extending back to a dialogue that began in June. The final shoe drops on this one, and it’s time to determine whether to stay or go. Mid week is critical, as events resonate with fateful and karmic undertones, but by Thursday you are elated.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

A critical intimate matter comes to a head over the Full Moon phase, pointing to a an endemic challenge you have to confront and overcome regarding a love relationship you have struggled to come to terms with, or to get off the ground at all. The current stars demand you make a commitment of some description, and this is tied to financial matters in several ways. Your income may be a factor in your ability to establish this connection, or there could be an issue involving child support. A concerning health matter is resolved midweek. This is an appropriate time to release bad habits that are debilitating to your productivity.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Contentious situations could be brewing in your partnerships and domestic life over the Full Moon on Monday. It’s likely an issue concerning your residence or familial obligations are hindering the breakthrough you would seek to make in a committed relationship. Finding new resolve to tackle this issue is the best potential outcome here, and by observing where you feel most stuck, you can genuinely identify the challenge that requires your attention. Karmic overtones preside mid week in a love relationship that has deep connections to the past. By Thursday you are back in the game and ready to rock.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

While you are operating primarily behind the scenes right now, a highly concerning issue regarding your health, productivity or work culminates in the earlier part of the week that will demand immediate attention. This could easily be a realization you are quite unsatisfied with where you are at, though at it’s best will force you seek remedy and make some crucial decisions, that by December can yield a positive outcome if you are willing to put in the work and build this up one step at a time. Mid week is fruitful for releasing negative conditioning associated with your upbringing, and an internal conversation you’ve been having with yourself since June can finally be put to rest.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

If the financial picture looks bleak, this is a good time to deepen and redouble your efforts to make progress by redefining your values. The early days of the week point to the matters that require not only your immediate, but long range attention, presenting a turning point in which you can begin to make assured strides towards what you really want. Socially there are high and low notes, and your list of friends could be shrinking and growing as relationships more appropriate to you come to replace those that are fading away. Thursday is fantastic for a meeting, party or event. Optimism prevails once again.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

The ambience is pretty contentious and there is the potential to come under attack, or at least feel as though you are. A domestic situation may be simmering in conflict, though this could be precisely the catalyst required to get you to remedy a situation in your home life long overdue. Between now and next March, decisive actions taken rectify a situation once and for all. (Circle February 12th for a HUGE breakthrough.) A financial matter, possibly a source of income, comes to closure by midweek. Alternately, positive past karma could turn up a bonus for you. A stunning professional moment Thursday moves this all forward beautifully.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

The process of release has been a major theme in your life since May 2017, impacting both the relational sphere and your own self image proportionally. While this won’t come fully complete until late October, a huge chunk of this transformation occurs this week, allowing you to release a couple lifetimes of spent karma if you are willing to shed the skin and conceptions necessary to make this vital personal metamorphosis. The themes that percolated during the late July eclipse resonate and the changes you have sought to integrate begin to really take hold. Watch words early in the week as you are speaking from a highly subjective space without being aware of it. Thursday is brilliant, enjoy yourself!

PISCES February 19 – March 20

A financial resolution is in sight, though some hurdles must be cleared before you can really maximize the opportunity at hand. Between now and next March you have another chance to radically reform how you earn and save, though you will have to be exceedingly original in your thinking to do so. An obstacle to the realization of your most cherished wishes plays a role and will push you to find way a through, even if at the moment it feels as though you are wading through bricks. You can use this feeling, as well as your feelings of self worth (particularly if they veer towards the not so great) very instructively to guide you through the first, second and third steps you need to take to intimate the progress that will see you to steps nine, ten and eleven, a few months down the road. Tap into what you really value and make a plan.

STARGAZER SEPTEMBER HOROSCOPES

PROGRESS
Forward momentum is finally made, with Mars and then Saturn returning direct, a shift in ambience is palpable and likely comes as a huge relief. Matters that precipitated as far back as January may culminate now when Jupiter and Pluto make their final sextile on the 12th. A journey into the darker regions of the netherworld pays off now, and where you have acted (consistently) with passion and conviction towards a goal or ideal is the prize. The Virgo New Moon ties into the configuration nicely, and offers a methodical practicality to realize this. On the other hand, an opposition of the New Moon to Neptune can provide a more challenging atmosphere, engendering an illusionary quality that can be either inspiring or confusing.

Venus and Mars are in conflict meanwhile, and there can be a confrontational quality in relationships over the coming months. Partners may be reconsidering prior choices, especially when Venus retrogrades in October. The friction between Scorpio (Venus) and Aquarius (Mars) can be pretty intense. One partner may want a more deeply intimate connection while the other seeks complete freedom. It’s possible that you experience this dynamic as a personal inner conflict. When Venus transits back into Libra in November, the terms of agreements and recalibration of the balance will occur. Venus and Mars trine on November 9th, signaling a truce is made.

Elements of the fates are in play, with Venus square the Nodes on the 16th and Mars conjunct South Node, (the final of 3 contacts made since June,) occurring in the final week of the month. These contacts can reveal the shortcomings of a decision made during the Summer or evolve a storyline initiated during the Aquarius eclipse that occurred at the end of July. It may be time to finally release a karmic contract and finally move forward. May the forces be with you! ~ Stargazer

SEPTEMBER HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

You continue to elevate your public profile and experience exciting shifts in perspective this month. A clash with a partner on the 9th can signal a slow down or reconsideration of the relationship. Venus begins to slow in orbit, preparing for retrograde motion. Perhaps job obligations are pulling you apart. A new venture partner, loan or outside source of money can bolster your professional prospects on the 12th. A behind the scenes role seems to suit you best right now. A new job or position is highlighted this month. A project or assignment you begin on the 20th will play a major role in your activities for the next four months. The New Moon on the 9th could also present an opportunity. You are at ease with yourself on the 25th and onwards. A Full Moon in your sign ties it all together for you.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Relationships intensify, (and will continue to for a few months) as Venus begins a transit of Scorpio, your mirror self, or partnership, from the 10th of September. This transit extends into January of next year, or close to 13 weeks. (During the month of November, Venus is mostly in Libra due to the retrograde cycle.) You could see some push/pull dynamics taking place in your love relationship and it may be that you or your loved one are getting cold feet, at least temporarily. Venus harmonizes with Saturn over the course of the retrograde, but is also in tension to the Nodes. A situation has to prove itself. Hold in your heart that true love will prevail and you will be fine. Feelings run strong around the 12th and a New Moon in the most romantic part of your zodiac on the 9th can stimulate very positive dynamics in your love life.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

There is an inward shift this month and while you are still riding on a bit of a social + romantic wavelength you’ll feel a bit more reclusive. The 7th is really remarkable for coming into your own and getting in touch with your inner space and doing some soul healing. Practices you put in now will last you a long time. Your work life needs some tweaking mid month, and you’ll ask whether what you are doing to stash the cash is in alignment with where you want to invest yourself the most, which is likely to involve your head expression, speaking and writing. Adjustments are required for growth and because these changes involve altering the most fixed aspects of existence, thus there is a great deal of friction around those changes. You take pleasure in your routines and having healthy habits this month. You feel more upbeat after the 22nd.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

As money matters reconcile and fade away in the rear view mirror, you become more free to tune into the very enticing romantic and social opportunities that are available this month. You may find a romantic relationship goes through a period of adjustment around the 17th. You and yours need to get on the same page for the future and negotiate some kind of financial agreement. This one will be a work in progress for a few months. Put to rest a long standing issue related to debt or some other form of outside income on the 26th. An exciting new social chapter opens up for you on the 20th, and a creative or academic project you begin now will become an important part of your daily life and activities for the next 4 months. Putting on a performance, writing an online blog or journal, or hosting a podcast could all be fun projects you’ll consider with some friends. From the 10th a spectacular and loving transit of Venus influences your house of True Romance. There’s going to be a back and fourth (again) though, with Venus going retro next month, so son’t get your hopes up too quickly!

LEO July 23 – August 22

Financial channels open this month, it’s a good time for budgeting expenses and monitoring your income. The 20th begins a prosperous period, you’ll be working for it, but earning what you deserve. The edge comes back to your relationship on the 12th, and unresolved conflict will be inevitable. You can bury a long standing issue on the 26th. Call it out for what it is and cut yourself free from burdensome people and energies. The 18th could present a vexing sexual/romantic conundrum. Sultry Black Moon Lillith combines with the South Node, and there could be enticements that could produce a set back. Venus in Scorpio from the 10th sets up the major theme of the final third of the year, associated with your home and family and a back and fourth (retrograde) issue pertaining to a residential matter. It could be you are ready to make an upgrade, Jupiter is all for it, but you may want to anticipate for delays until December. Either resources or a partner prevent you from taking the plunge. Let this month be instructive, not constructive.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

New beginnings are the focus of this months stars and you will start to see signs of life in a relationship that may have stalled or stagnated. Growth may be slow going, but it is also assured at this point. Limits are tested on the 8th and a fight could signal a temporary separation, so watch your words on this difficult day. A Venus retrograde period is approaching and partners may be feeling stretched a bit thin over the coming months. Events on the 12th can catch you by surprise, yet you feel at ease here and can readily communicate your heart’s desire with candor. You might reach the final straw with a job you no longer feel is stimulating and by the end of the month you’ll be ready to bite the dust on a situation you have outgrown. Mercury makes a super quick transit of your sign mid month and a flurry of activity keeps you remarkably busy. Financials come into frame during the last week, this will be particularly helpful and interesting if you have decided to quit a job and need to figure out your budget until you have a new position lined up.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Contentious energy with a family member, flatmate or within your residence can trigger an argument or crisis on the 8th. This will be the most obvious with someone whom you are in a romantic relationship and have been living with (or thinking about it). Disagreements at this time can also point to financial worries and indications mid month of shortcomings can also be problematic. Good news could arrive on the 11th and 12th that modifies this enormously though, and will assist you in making progress. An issue that has weighed upon your relationship since May (or earlier) can finally be resolved, and the time around the Full Moon on the 25th and events over the week that follows can bring in very positive news. There is equally the potential you are breaking something off in this phase too, in which case it’s absolutely best to release it, as it no longer serves your growth. There is a solemn quality to someone you say goodbye to at this time, but it also frees you to embrace an incredible momentum to move forward.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

Venus in your sign from the 10th brings pleasurable experiences, even a little luxury and romance into your life, with the 12th presenting a wonderful opportunity to make a commitment, especially for business. Agreements made now are long lasting and all involved parties will grow and benefit from the terms of a contract at this time. You might feel a bit triggered around the 17th in regard to your identity and professional direction. If you don’t feel you are being properly represented, for instance in the press or media or identify personally with your public persona there can be an uncomfortable adjustment now. Friends are on sides and especially around the 20th you start to see some profits from your business pursuits. A domestic matter finally begins to see resolution, the last week of the month allows you to make final changes and say goodbye where it is time to set yourself free.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

A professional enterprise or trajectory you set in motion during July new shows signs of real progress. This will be most evident during the New Moon on the 9th. This lunation taps into vitalizing alinements with Pluto and Jupiter, suggesting work you have been doing behind the scenes will pay off lucratively for you. A promotion or success in a personal business is indicated, although an opposition to Neptune stimulates a more complex, beguiling atmosphere. There is much more here than what meets the eye and you do well to wait to put a plan into motion until the 20th. A certain nostalgia is present this month, as you recognize your life is changing and bid farewell to people and places that are familiar to you. The transit of Venus in Scorpio beginning on the 10th (and which lasts through December, due to an upcoming retrograde phase,) stimulates a period of closure and endings. This will be prolonged as certain elements will take longer to release, but by December, coupled with Jupiter in your sign, you will find yourself in a whole new world.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

Saturn resumes direct motion on the 5th and you will likely feel stimulated, in a good way, to start to make some new progress towards your personal and long range goals. A significant turning point on the 20th can stimulate you to take action towards a media or publishing venture, you want to get yourself (and ideas) out into the big wide world. A financial resolution is possible on the 26th. This time a decision sticks, and a burden you have contended with can finally be released. Venus in Scorpio on the 10th sends you positive social vibes. It will be fun to connect (and during the retrograde to reconnect) with friends. You may also see a positive upturn in financial matters associated with your profession. The 11th and 12th are very auspicious, but there could be a surprise in store! Likewise the 15th and 16th are very good for striking deals, agreements made now have a seal of protection and good luck attached to them. A Full Moon on the 25th brings a culmination in your residence or with close family members. Saturn is in a difficult aspect, so it could be you are making a decision under some kind of duress or to mitigate a shortage of some sort.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

A great deal of unfinished business gets sorted this month, with many arenas of your life impacted and clearing the way for growth and new developments. There could be a tendency to withdraw in this period, at least through the 11th when Mars reenters your sign. Venus comes to occupy the apex of your chart from the 10th, and coupled with Jupiter will offer a very favorable period for career advancement. With Venus set to retrograde in about a month, some of these enterprises will go through transmutations before they reach their culmination, which you can expect in December. The 12th and 16th are ideal for putting things into motion and articulating your vision for a project. There can be some erotic intensity around the 18th, temptation will abound. A joint financial endeavor you sign off on around the 20th bears weight for the next four months, and will play a big role in your activities through the end of the year, so think negotiations through. The last week of the month gives you closure on an issue you have sought to reconcile for many moons. A sense of rebirth prevails.

PISCES February 19 – March 20

Partnership is emphasized, and the lines of communication are wide open. The 7th, 11th, 12th, 15th and 16th are all very positive for coming to agreements that effect your relationships and business partnerships. A New Moon on the 9th in your house of partnership has highly auspicious energy around it, and resonates with a powerful development or meeting that may have occurred in early January. The 20th is ideal for putting a deal or commitment into writing, including an engagement or setting a wedding date. (The suggestion would be to wait until after Venus retrograde to actually hold the ceremony if you are getting married. As of September 3rd, the Venus chart is already in retrograde shadow.) From the 12th Mars now direct reenters your house of privacy, seclusion and endings, giving you another opportunity to eradicate issues from the past that have been vexing and difficult to resolve so far this year. A big push comes in the final week of the month, and around the 26th there could be a long sought after resolution to a problematic matter that allows you to leave the past behind once and for all.

STARGAZER AUGUST FORECAST

Sands continue to shift this month, though some of the volatility appears to be dissipating. Mercury and Mars in retrograde suggest a convoluted path, though positive outcomes are possible if you are willing to renegotiate and work through the unexpected developments that transpire. The most crucial events are likely to occur around the Leo Solar Eclipse on the 11th. Mercury will have moved its way back to the degree of the eclipse in the early days of the month, signaling several key conversations or pieces of information that have a bearing on where this all lands are at play.

This is all more likely to culminate towards the end of the month, when Mercury returns to this degree after resuming direct motion. (On August 29th, at 18’ Leo, to be precise.) Jupiter from Scorpio plays a role in the configuration – making two square aspects, both at the time of the eclipse and again just prior to the return of Mercury to the eclipse degree, indicating a need to dig deeper, emotionally and psychologically, to resolve whatever is at stake here. These are pretty obstinate and temperamental signs, so some matter of ego or power tripping has to get sorted out between them before progress can be made. Mercury turns direct on the 19th, harmonizing to Venus, signaling an amenable agreement or positive news shifts the trajectory forward.

Venus moves from Virgo into Libra on the 6th, offering a diplomatic ambience to underscore all of these developments. Venus is quite far ahead of the Sun at this point and enters retrograde shadow early next month, infusing Autumn with relational reassessments, but more on that later. For now, Venus is happy in the sign in which she governs and makes a productive aspect to Mars in Aquarius, signaling a positive development within an association and enhancing connectedness in both romantic and working partnerships. Testing aspects to Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn will challenge these alliances mutually, and relationships have to transform as well as demonstrate they have the ability to serve long range objectives. Those that last through this period are rock solid, Venus retrograde notwithstanding.

Mars retrogrades back into Capricorn on the 12th (through September 10th) adding some gritty resilience to all efforts being made in this period. An unfulfilled prospect ranging back to early May can now come to fruition. Resuming direct motion at the same time Mercury direct conjuncts the Leo eclipse degree (the 26th – 29th are particularly auspicious,) pulls the trigger on everything else that has percolated throughout the Summer months, signaling a substantial shift forward.

PISCES FULL MOON

Pisces Full

Check out the cool kite feature between Sun – Moon to Saturn + Uranus. Also a very diggable harmonic between Jupiter, Pluto + Neptune. Meanwhile, Venus is square Pluto ☠️

Full Moon in Pisces on the 26th augments all of this as the Sun – Moon polarity taps the trine between Saturn and Uranus which lasts from August 14 – September 14. The final Jupiter – Neptune trine (August 19th) underscores the inspirational themes that are present during the Full Moon and a balance between the rational and innovative is tempered with insight from the spiritual realm. Intuition serves well in this phase and from this place the constructs of a brand new life can begin to be put into place.

AUGUST EXTENDED + WEEKLY FORECAST w. DAILY ASPECTS AVAILABLE TO SUBSCRIBERS ON PATREON

ARIES – The Ram

It’s a highly pleasurable month in store, and especially from the 19th, when Mercury resumes direct you may find a love relationship gets back on track. A test on the 9th will prove whether or not this one is built to last. All the knots could take a few weeks to untangle, but an eclipse in the area of true romance on the 11th can get you there much quicker. Swim in your imagination and be inspired on the 19th. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to connect with the deepest reservoirs of your spirituality and innermost wisdom. From mid month, Mars re-enters the zone of public image, reputation, and career. You may reconsider your life direction, or make another go at an opportunity you missed early this year. After the 28th you’ll be ready to give it another shot.

TAURUS – The Bull

An unstable ambience around your living situation can find resolution this month, there is a message for you regarding this during the Leo eclipse on the 11th. When Mercury is direct from the 19th you’ll swiftly see progress where a real estate negotiation may have stalled over the prior month. The 30th is a crucial date, as Mercury reaches the degree of the eclipse and releases a great deal of bottled up energy. Conversation and negotiations reach a fevered pitch. Mars direct in Capricorn on the 28th gives you a bit of the va va voom. Uranus retrograde from the 8th signals a lessening of The Intensity. It’s time to integrate some of the new things you uncovered about yourself over the last three months. Saturn and Uranus combine fruitfully, offering you an opportunity to bring some stability to your new found independence. A romantic getaway on the 19th speaks to your hearts’ deepest desires.

GEMINI – The Twins

While it’s a bummer Mercury and Mars are moving at backwards trajectory, this will still stand out as a really exciting month for your social life and maybe even to see a special romance grow. While it’s not really advisable to start new relationships (Mars retrograde suggests past life connotations,) there could be some nice escalations in an ongoing relationship, though the 9th looks a bit dicey. An eclipse on the 11th can see you moving on a new project, though it could get off to a slow start with Mercury still on backwards trawl for another week still, nice and easy. Spirituality and intuition are highlighted. You find a deep inner reserve of strength. Professional rewards are due, as a Full Moon on the 26th couples with this strength and offers an opportunity to move in a really heart guided and bold new direction. Events on the 19th tell you that you’re heading in the right place.

CANCER – The Crab

A relational matter you’d thought been put to rest crops up again in the latter part of the month. It’s also possible someone you had written off returns to the scene and you might consider another go at it. Super romantic vibes on the 19th could make this reunion an easy sell, but think this one through before you commit. Events on the 26th speak volumes about why or why not this person is just so right/wrong for you. Financials are still in the frame, but Mercury retro through the 19th still muddies the waters here. An Eclipse on the 11th and a conversation or insight on the 8th can yield clues to a resolution, just don’t expect quick results. Look to the 30th for the door to open. Home is where the heart is and you’ll be happiest entertaining and lounging around the house. A redecoration project or fresh coat of paint can work wonders now. Rose and pink colors, applied in moderation, activate positive Feng Shui and break apart stagnant channels of energy for you.

LEO – The Lion

A degree of harmony is restored this month, even Venus and Mars connect briefly, softening some of the rougher energy fields remaining in the aftermath of last month. An eclipse in your sign on the 11th coupled with Mercury direct on the 19th sets you back on course. Insights and conversations on the 8th will reveal a solution, you will be able to put these into motion shortly. Venus in Libra enlivens the social life and your day to day encounters with others. A love connection is super sweet on the 7th, regardless of what have been through, and a single Leo could strike up an interesting love connection in the most casual day to day activities. Mars back in Capricorn on the 14th (for 4 weeks) could indicate having to go back to complete or retool an unfinished work assignment. It’s possible something wasn’t done right the first time and has to be sorted out. By the 28th things resume a slightly less sluggish pace, it will be easier to complete this in the beginning of September.

VIRGO – The Maiden

The theme of endings continues as you make peace with the past and enjoy some quietude, perhaps a retreat. The 8th is ideal for setting up a meditation practice or committing to a course of psychotherapy if you feel you are ready for that. (Everyone and anyone can find benefit!) The 11th also sees a door closing on the past, and you’ll feel the load lighten as you say goodbye to a life you no longer need to live. Venus and Mars team up to make some magic and you can see a nice boost in income or grab an assignment that adds a few bucks to your bank account. Don’t spend it all in one place as a reality check or shortage on the 9th or 26th is likely if you do. Mars reenters Capricorn on the 14th, maybe there is unfinished business with a former love attachment that didn’t get off the ground the first time? The Full Moon on the 26th can bring relational matters to culmination. Commitments made now are built to last and will stand the test of time.

LIBRA – The Scales

Shifts in atmosphere this month make it easier to deal with some of the challenges that may have emerged in late July, as Jupiter and Neptune generate harmonious conditions in your work life and you’ll have opportunities to profit through imaginative and creative projects and assignments at this time. Venus in Libra from the 7th supports this and you’ll likely see an upturn in both your natural artistic affinities and a more pleasurable ambience over all. A meeting with the one you desire, even if brief, on the 7th will work wonders for a relationship that is going through hard times or separation. You’ll also start to find your way with a group project and developments on the 11th and especially after Mercury goes direct on the 19th will get you back on your way. Mars in Capricorn (retrograde) from the 13th signals unfinished residential issues that need to be addressed. It gets easier after the 28th to resolve these matters.

SCORPIO – The Scorpion

You get indications, especially around the 8th and 11th of the direction in which you need to take a professional endeavor. In another weeks time you can put this into motion, there is still a missing piece to this puzzle. Events that occurred in early June play a role and you know you have to deliver on an agreement you made. An electrifying partnership stabilizes a bit this month. It’s been exciting, but you are ready for a little less buzz. It will be nice to get a nights sleep. Romantic feelings become submerged, and you may think about who and what you have experienced this year so far, where you are now. You reach a crossroads on the 26th, time to decide to stay or go. Commitments made now will stand the test of time. You may be surprised what you agree to. A prior agreement could require review from the 14th, though from the 25th – 28th it gets dynamic again. Professionally you begin to regain your momentum.

SAGITTARIUS – The Archer

This is an exciting period for you socially and it’s possible you will be connecting with old friends and colleagues this month. A reunion could produce a new romantic interest around the 8th, as contacts will be very vibrant and exciting. With so much retrograde activity occurring, you will have to wait and see if this connection was built to last. You actually enjoy yourself a lot more if you detach yourself from seeking an outcome. Live in the moment. A financial reality check on the 9th could trigger some anxiety. As Mars reenters Capricorn, you’ll seek out solutions to problems that have been evasive. Mars direct from the 28th will give you the wherewithal to make a necessary change or complete an unfinished job through the first few weeks of September. A Full Moon in Pisces on the 26th points to a substantive change in your living arrangements. You could be making modifications to your home to accommodate a new business enterprise. Alterations that occur at this time will be enduring and have a powerful effect on your earnings.

CAPRICORN – The Seagoat

Uranus retrogrades early in the month, slowing the pace of crossing boundaries towards exciting new frontiers and recently acquired freedom. You have a few months to take it all in and determine where you want to go next. Professionally you could be in the spotlight, as Venus brings style, charm and diplomacy to your public image and reputation. A nice link between Venus and Mars on the 7th could land you a lucrative professional promotion or upgrade. Mars will be back in your sign from the 13th, and you’ll be eager to accomplish a great deal. It gets easier when Mars is direct after the 28th. An inspiration on the 19th could lead to a fun creative project you may work on with a group of friends. Writing, theater or a multi – media project could be very appealing. An eclipse on the 11th, followed by Mercury in direct motion a week later signals the successful conclusion of a negotiation that had likely been drawn out. The 18th is excellent for getting a agreement in writing and finalizing a deal that has been in the works.

AQUARIUS – The Waterbearer

Another eclipse on the 11th can bring sudden surprises in relationships. An event in the life of your partner has a big affect on you, for better or worse. A business partner could spur you to move towards your professional goals. Professional gains and lucrative incentives are possible on the 19th. Inspiration and creativity guide you towards the right objectives. A matter of contention or indecision regarding a partnership could begin to see resolution around the 8th. Romantic energy is strong at this time and reconnecting will bring you very close to someone you care for. Travel is favored, though the second half of the month is preferable, after the 19th Mercury resumes direct motion and there will be fewer delays and entanglements. A spiritual pilgrimage could be a good choice, you awaken to your inner most soul self on the 25th. This rare alignment offers a glimpse into your heart of hearts. You can come into intuitive awareness of a profound spiritual peace. Pressure subsides mid month with Mars leaving your sign for a few weeks.

PISCES – The Fishes

Romance remains sweet for the first week of the month, from the 7th a more financial emphasis comes into play. Your most intimate relationships are highlighted on the 7th, and a love relationship or business deal regarding shared income or an investment is auspiciously indicated. Work, health and productivity are still the main topic, and events during the eclipse on the 11th will bring a new position or project your way. A tuning point on the 8th adds a new dimension to your domestic life, you may be starting a work from home business or moving/renovation plans are starting to come together. After the 19th there is much more clarity when Mercury resumes direct motion. A promotion or assignment finally gets the green light you have been waiting for. Mid month will see Mars retrograde into Capricorn, and this could represent a period (over the next month) of reconnecting with old friends and alliances. There could be some fun surprises, maybe a reunion is in store. Mars direct on the 28th will restore the energy level, and also impacts your income. (Mars rules your money and earnings sector, so the retrograde period has likely put your finances in limbo.) Your personal mojo is strong during the Pisces Full Moon on the 26th, making this a fantastic time to mix and mingle. A commitment you make to your beloved contains enduring overtones that easily last the test of time.

JULY FORECAST

THE HANDS OF FATE…

Eclipse season unfolds with no shortage of dramatic events and surprising changes or revelations. Three upcoming eclipses (Cancer July 12th, Aquarius July 27th and Leo August 11th) shake up the foundations and speed up the trajectories of storylines initiated last August as well as over the first 6 weeks of 2018. The atmosphere is highly dynamic and ripe for immense breakthroughs, and if there was ever a month to make sure you get enough rest and drink enough water – this is certainly the one.

The predominant energy stimulated throughout July is that residing on the Fixed Cross, and those with planets or angles in the early degrees of the Fixed signs in particular (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) are the most directly effected by this. There can be a great deal of tension and urgency within this configuration, and security issues are particularly a priority throughout this volatile period. Underscoring this fortuitously is the Sun – Jupiter – Neptune Grand Water Trine, which offers emotional assurance and confidence to deal with whatever comes up. This aspect is felt most strongly over the first two weeks and is very much enhanced when Jupiter resumes direct motion from 13’ 21” Scorpio on the 10th.

Having been retrograde since early March, much of the progress that has been made over the past few months likely took place invisibly, since this process unfolded deep beneath the surface, requiring the integration of resilience through some manner of psychological inquiry and transformation. To the extent you have successfully managed to confront your innermost desires and even fears, as well as embraced your personal power, Jupiter direct will provide a sense of assurance and confidence to make huge strides over the upcoming months.

Reclamation of your individual inner strength has been possible during this period, and examining how far you have come since last December will provide insight into how extensive the catharsis has been for you. Jupiter – Scorpio requires the emancipation of the ego, in order to dig down into your darkest truths and honor them, the scarier the better. (Examining the placement of Pluto in your chart can also be useful here.) Where you may have not managed to confront these aspects of yourself yet, they will likely come flooding to the surface, seeking quick and rapid release when Jupiter goes direct. In any case, the 10th is highly potent for conducting healing and esoteric magic.

Saturn and Uranus are also moving into a harmonious alignment, which will be strongest from mid August through mid September. Uranus is pushing innovative approaches within the material realm, how people earn and use resources are the basic themes. Developments such as the sharing economy would be one example of a greater social transformation that reflects this energy. (Cryptocurrency assets, as I have mentioned previously, are another such example, but in such a volatile state of transitioning into main stream acceptance, they remain a less reliable indicator – so far – of the potentials expressed by Uranus in Taurus. Potent auspices at work this month may weigh in with some incredibly interesting developments.) Saturn from Capricorn seeks to stabilize these changes, and integrate long range strategies that enable new approaches.

Venus from Virgo (beginning on the 9th) offers a helping hand, particularly from the 11th – 14th when productive activities reinforce potentials for success in the material realm. Clean living, exercise and anything that enhances effectiveness pays off big time this week. Handling details and organizational matters associated with any sort of enterprise is especially favored now.

Eclipses will of course provide the major punctuation marks – and Nodal activations stimulate trajectories forward (North Node – Mercury July 4th, Sun July 29th) while also serving reminders of what is over, done and dusted (Mars to South Node July 21). There is a work in progress feeling to these configurations, however, with both Mercury (July 26 – August 19th) and Mars (through August 27th) in retrograde, indicating there are still a few kinks needing to get ironed out before taking that step forward. Nonetheless, there will be some major developments in July, be ready for anything and take any and all opportunities in stride. It may take a little longer to get all the puzzle pieces into place, but these are once in a lifetime opportunities!

HAPPY ECLIPSE SEASON!!!

**Please note: I am putting weekly horoscopes on hiatus while I prepare for a big event later this month.

STARSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

Mercury slows and then retrogrades in your area of pleasure, self expression and romance. You could start having second thoughts about a whirlwind love affair or someone long forgotten lands back in your orbit. A mild eclipse in Cancer on the 13th signals a change of guard is coming. In about six more months, you are going to find yourself far more involved with your family and personal life, and pulling back from public life and professional objectives. Meanwhile, a work project or new position is going incredibly well, leading to advancement now (the 22nd and 27th are starred for good news) or at the beginning of next year. As Mars retrogrades, you connect with old associates, perhaps rekindling old dreams that never came to fruition. A financial turnaround from the 10th lifts your spirits.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Home and professional matters come to a head this month as aspects of both seem to completely unravel. Mars retrograde in the arena of public profile and profession coupled with Mercury retrograde in the arena of private life and home whip up a perfect storm of trouble, and could easily turn your world on its ear. Love comes to save the day in the meanwhile as a benevolent Venus transit in your house of True Romance couples with Jupiters’ direct motion in the arena of partnerships, smoothing the waters and clearing any obstacles to satisfy your hearts’ deepest desires. The 14th is a great day to commit and highly pleasurable vibrations on the 22nd will remind you why you did. A Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on the 27th is the last nail in the coffin on a professional path that is done and dusted. If you’ve been waiting for a signal to jump ship, the time is ripe.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

Retrograde Mars can bring old friends back into the fold, an encounter or reunion on the 21st could turn out to be a real blast from the past! As Mercury enters shadow (and retrogrades from the 26th) this quality is enhanced, with a lot of lost connections resurfacing and ideas you may have scratched being reconsidered. Home could be the scene of some really romantic encounters. Love is emphasized on the 14th, 22nd and 27th. These are also lovely times in which to beautify your environment. Earth tones can bring a harmonious Feng Shui and break up stagnant energy fields in the home. You get a nice dose of motivation for creative self expression or writing from the 23rd, and an idea you get on the 28th can plant the seeds for an amazing project you’ll likely work on for months. A new financial plan you put into place during the eclipse on the 13th could yield dividends in about 6 months. Plan carefully and trust your intuition.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

A partial eclipse in your sign on the 13th signals changes are coming up on the road ahead. Although you won’t see the North Node shift into your sign until early November, your life is going to undergo some very significant transformation over the coming years, and you begin to get clues of that now. For now the evolutionary drive is towards establishing your personal values and earnings. Fantastic opportunities are revealed on the 4th and 29th that point you in the right direction. Meanwhile, events on the 21st and 27th suggest a shortfall in your shared and outside income sector that will remind you precisely why you require self reliance. Mercury in shadow leading up to a retrograde period on the 26th also influences this area so this story is going to play out for a few months. By September, the issue is settled. Socially this is an exceptional period, and spending time with those you can share daily pleasures, creative and intellectual activities with is highly favored. The 11th, 22nd and 27th sparkle with excitement and these are the best dates to accept invitations or entertain.

LEO July 23 – August 22

It’s a very beguiling month although there is pleasure to be found if you really mine for it (the 11th is pretty sweet). Complex energies are in abundance, especially in relation to partnerships, where a situation seems to be sliding backwards and taking you with it! A Total Eclipse on the 27th resonates Februaries’ themes and again presents a period of sweeping change and decisions made in a heartbeat. This one has some real fire in it, Mars is conjunct the Moon and there will be drama! Uranus also squares from Taurus. Talk about keg fire, bring your marshmallows! Normally, events that transpire now would be irrevocable, but with Mars retrograde, it’s not unlikely that it doesn’t completely coalesce until the end of September, when Mars comes back to 4’ Aquarius. July 4th and 29th are moments in which very meaningful insights and self awareness are possible, and during which you can assert yourself effectively. Mercury prepares to retrograde in your sign so it may be a tricky phase this and next month to articulate or even fully comprehend your motivations. Venus in Virgo from the 10th turns up the luxe factor and you can indulge a little as extra earnings, perhaps from a creative venture, pad your pocketbook. Be discerning on the 24th, an enticement is not what it seems regardless of how appealing it seems in the moment!

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

Venus touches down in your sign on the 10th, bringing a celestial goody basket which will potentially mitigate the slow down at work. Jupiter direct at the same time generates a harmonious ambience for social activities, and enticing contacts on the 11th and 22nd are fantastic for attending get togethers and otherwise enjoying the company of your friends. Mercury also slows, and will occupy your area of secrecy and endings through the first week of September. Something you want to let go of you can’t quite shake off as quickly as you’d like, and you do well to mine for buried treasure in your subconscious by consulting a trusted psychic or even a therapist. The 4th and 29th are great for getting to the bottom of deeply rooted personal issues. Releasing these literally sets you free. Events on the 21st not so much, as a work or health issue resurfaces and demands your attention. A very intense eclipse on the 27th reinforces this, and there could be an ending here, if not during the last week of September.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Relational dynamics continue to go to and fro, and although you do continue to have breakthroughs with your groups, a misunderstanding could derail a project temporarily while Mercury retrogrades from the 26th. An exciting professional development around the 5th brings a turn in your fortune by the time Jupiter resumes direct motion on the 11th. Professionally you could be enjoying the limelight or accolades for a success. You’ll be happiest doing so from a remote location, or working behind the scenes on a top secret project. The 14th, 22nd and 27th are all beneficial for this, as well as just getting in some good rest if you require it. A vexing issue within a love relationship (and one you might be trying to shake off entirely) comes back out of the woodwork around the 21st. The eclipse on the 27th represents a period of incredible volatility, beginnings and endings transpire and life can change in a heartbeat under such auspices. With Mars retrograde, it would seem something remains unfinished before an important conclusion can be drawn at the end of September. Intensity crescendos up until the end of the month, when Mars crosses the Sun and Uranus.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

This can be a really rocky one, as full on retrograde Mars connects to the Lunar Eclipse on the 27th, in a tense aspect to unpredictable Uranus. Those dynamics at the end of May come back to roost, and it could be in this period you make an out of the blue change to your living situation, even if it means moving somewhere you lived before, maybe even back home for a while. You get another reminder of where you are feeling most “stuck” on the 21st. Use these feelings instructively to uncover what you need to release. The time will come to do so soon enough. Professionally you might feel yourself switching gears, and reconsidering your course, especially towards the end of the month. An enterprise isn’t quite ready to take off and needs another work through before it can be implemented. Friends are supportive and rally to your side, the 11th, 14th and 22nd are all good for planning activities and occasions. Jupiter direct in your sign on the 10th is a saving grace, and what ever should come or go in this period, you feel optimistic about the future and all it holds.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

Mercury slows it’s orbit in the area of great escapes, adventure and higher learning, suggesting travel plans could hit a hitch. Anticipate delays until the second half of next month. Mars is also moving backwards and in slow motion, amplifying the sense of going back in time. This will be especially evident on the 21st, as you get reminders you need to unstick yourself from a situation. Easier said than done… Venus in Virgo from the 10th elevates your public profile and gets you in front of the people who can help you succeed in your chosen profession. The 11th, 14th, 22nd and 27th are all exceptional for career development and making a good impression. These opportunities open doors and pave the way for enduring success when the Sun and Mercury pass through part of the zodiac in September. The Aquarius eclipse on the 27th can intensify your desire to break free from a certain limiting situation, and the exact outlet you are seeking could present itself on the 29th. Be ready to jump.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

A partial eclipse in Cancer on the 13th could signal big changes in your relationship status over the coming 6 months or even year. Pluto opposes the Lunation, so events have fated and intense overtones. Jupiter and Neptune meanwhile provide a more amiable ambience, enhancing good feelings and romance mutually. Venus in Virgo from the 10th adds a very sweet and loving atmosphere. The 11th, 14th, 22nd and 27th all provide positive opportunities to develop your bond with someone, especially if you are able to travel or are working on a publishing or media project together. Some financial challenges could be present over the 21st or 27th, as a source of income could be coming to an end. This will swiftly be replaced by fantastic avenues of growth through shared resources or an investment coming your way. The details emerge on the 4th and 29th. Mercury retrograde in this area from the 26th could curtail negotiations for a few weeks, an issue with a contract or agreement will have to be scrutinized.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

This will be a very dynamic and transformational period for you. The angles of your chart are alighted and an intense eclipse in your sign on the 27th signals life altering changes are in store. Since you can’t really anticipate or maneuver the outcome in this period, it’s best to go with the current of the tide of events. For now trust that the universe is moving you towards an important evolutionary goal post. Signals and events on the 4th, 21st and 29th have fateful undertones and remind you, even if the land scape seems chaotic, that you are headed in the right direction. With Mars still retrograde in your sign, things may not all fall into place until late September, when the action planet, in direct motion, again conjuncts the degree of the eclipse and matters resurface and progress can be made. Mercury will retrograde in the arena of partnerships from the 26th, eliciting a period of withdrawal or reappraisal of your important one on one alliances. This impacts both professional and romantic relationships, and people from the past can have a tendency to reappear during these phases, usually to settle unfinished business.

PISCES February 19 – March 20

A partial eclipse in Cancer on the 13th can stimulate developments and rapid changes in your love life. Mars retrograde suggests there is a fleeting quality to romance now. Very romantic currents are heading your way, especially on the 11th, 14th, 22nd and 27th. Could be a mixed fortune? Better prospects or the opportunity to more fully develop a relationship with someone you meet now will emerge a bit further down the road, but there’s no reason to hold back or delay where feelings are mutual and bring positive mojo into your life. A job or assignment you had thought you were going to get could be put on hold as Mercury slows for retrograde on the 26th. The vibe where you work could be a bit downbeat, making this a good month for travel or more recreational activities if it’s possible. There could be a great deal going on in your personal life in particular around mid month that requires quick thinking and your undivided attention. What occurs is dramatic and dynamic, and potentially signals an ending. With Mars as well Mercury out of phase there could be some delays. A work matter is beautifully starred on the 29th, a lucky break or compelling new team member gets your crew back into action.

Weekly Horoscopes 6/24-30

The key energies that will shape the Summer months click into place this week. Mars retrogrades in Aquarius on Tuesday, a transit that lasts through the end of August, while Mercury enters Leo on Friday for a 10 weeks visit (due to it’s own retrograde period from late July – mid August) suggesting there is a work in progress quality present over the coming months, and with the Fixed Cross activated heavily, issues pertaining to security are going through major transitions. With Mars and Mercury both retrograde for the better part of the next 3 months, and teetering on the Nodal Axis, there is a lot of recalibration required to reach the desired outcomes. Stay as chill with this as possible, as things are not only moving slowly, but changing on a daily basis as new information constantly emerges throughout these sensitive retrograde transits.

It can be easy under these auspices to fall into complacency and try to keep doing things the same way as always, but the message is really to break into new territory and do things in different or even unprecedented way. Retrograde periods also have a way of revealing the flaws in the original design and what isn’t really working out. The extended Mercury – Leo transit is actually helpful in keeping the North Node – Leo dialogue open for so long. Due to it’s upcoming retrograde cycle, it will conjoin the Leo Solar Eclipse in August, enabling very important conversations to occur that will advance matters quite swiftly. (Actual decisions and agreements will likely fall into place closer to the end of August – when Mercury direct reaches this degree again and Mars also returns to forward motion.)

Mercury and Leo are not a great natural fit – Mercury rules the logical attributes of mind, while Leo, like all fire signs, lives through the faculties of sensation and intuition, the gut feeling. Over the next 10 weeks then do not expect much cooperation from the rational or analytical auspices of your intellect, but rather roll with the hunches and the punches and express yourself from your creative-instinctual nature.

Otherwise this week is a sobering period at best as Saturn looms largely in the tapestry of the current aspect patterns and a sense that it’s time to face up to responsibilities is highlighted. The Capricorn Full Moon on Thursday is in exact conjunction with it’s ruling planet – Saturn, while the Sun sits in opposition. The nourishing and nurturing atmosphere Cancer Sun seeks to provide is challenged by harsh realities, producing a somber, or even an emotionally depressive state. There could be feelings of restriction and limitation, though if you have managed to live up to the demands that Saturn requires of you right now (particularly over the last six months) there can be a sense of having accomplished something of importance and enduring results. If this is not the case, the Full Moon will likely reorient you to the task at hand and urge making a bigger effort and to act with greater resilience.

Where Saturn resides, you are polishing your diamond, so to speak. The Saturn process is about taking something crude and refining it, through time and patience, into something stunning and unbreakable. As you choose your activities, and especially those that are patterned and define your daily practices, ask yourself if these are helping you grind on your diamond, or just grinding your gears. Let the response to this help you choose the ones that will add lustre and beauty to the area of your life affected, while you set aside those that do not.

Meanwhile Eclipse season is brewing behind the scenes, with particularly volatile events occurring around the Aquarius Total Lunar Eclipse occurring on July 27th. Early indications arrive next weekend as the transiting Aquarius Moon stimulates several of the aspects that will occur in another 4 weeks. Pay attention to cues and intuition for where this is all heading. Breakdowns that occur around next weekend are crucial for stripping away what is inessential in the next phase, regardless of how it feels in the moment. Many of these narratives were set into motion last August, and where you encountered major turning points in your life trajectory, a new chapter will be written quite soon.

EXTENDED WEEKLY FORECAST WITH DAILY ASPECTARIAN + READINGS AVAILABLE FOR SUBSCRIBERS ON PATREON

STARSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

Old acquaintances reappear on the scene for an encore, while others may disappear from view for a while. You’ve made substantial progress professionally since the beginning of the year, though the Full Moon Thursday also points to how far you still have to go. If you aren’t pleased with the results, dig deep and figure out where you can redouble your efforts to attain the long term outcome you seek. Mercury makes an extended visit to your area of pleasure and self expression, making this a vitalizing period for your personal endeavors. Time to get creative.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Career matters stall and will require some patience to maneuver through the Summer months. Your sense of direction is clarified during the Full Moon on Thursday, though here too, you may be hitting a road block of some description. Things could be touchy with a romantic partner early in the week, making this a testing period if you were thinking of introducing your mate to the family or popping the cohabitation question. With your root base in flux for the foreseeable future you do best to keep things malleable for the time being.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

This will be an amenable period for your social life, and a variety of contacts and connections will keep things lively over the next few months. The people in your neighborhood have a lot to show you, not so much those at a distance. An idea for a project may resurface and keep you busy. Educational goals may detour at this time, take time to reflect on where and how you will get to your destination. A critical financial matter demands clarification over the Full Moon phase. It may be time to address a debt or settlement matter.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

Critical partnership issues that have been stewing since New Years culminate this week and whatever the result (till death do we part or a parting of ways) there is a significant change in the upcoming mix. Financial matters will have their share of ups and downs throughout the Summer as you begin to get indications of towards the end of the week. Establishing your values and a sense of personal worth will lead you to the appropriate outlet for your talents, the next two months are appropriate for exploration and experimentation.

LEO July 23 – August 22

With Mercury making an extended transit of your sign this Summer you are likely to be busy – busy – busy, though a push and pull quality within a relationship can leave you exasperated. It’s equally possible your own projects keep a relationship off limits for the time being or someone just falls off the radar. Sands shift dramatically over the next few months, so even if a situation is untenable in the present tense does not mean it won’t come together for you a little way down the road. As a huge work assignment culminates, you exude authority.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

A relationship gets serious this week, though if on your own, you may just seriously be doubting if you’ll ever have one again. This is a crucial time in which to coming to terms with what you need and expect in this area will bring forth an enduring commitment, if only over time. A lot is going on behind the scenes for you, and it appears there are matters that require closure of the permanent variety before you can really move forward. Detoxification is required now, and finding help on this journey (in the form of some kind of therapy) could provide incredible assistance while you navigate your personal X-Files.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Substantive shifts in your home/profession are possible over the next Lunar Cycle, if not the next 6 months, and you may find a relocation is required to make the most of a career opportunity that is offered in the near future. Getting real with what is and what is not working is critical to making the right choices. Unexpected financial upsets are also possible, so keep your ear to the ground, especially where shared resources are on topic. Relationships can go a bit sideways in this period, and a sense of uncertainty could be pervasive while you figure out your future. An unsettled matter from the past may be preventing a commitment. Solve this.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

Profession is the major topic for your this Summer, as a lengthy transit of Mercury highlights where you are headed. While detours may come off as frustrating while they occur, they will ultimately play a big role in landing you in exactly the right place at exactly the right time. (Circle August 11th for a conspicuous development.) Changes in the domestic arena reflect changes within, and if you seek to clear your head space, first try your living space. A fresh coat of paint or getting rid of old stuff and clutter has a profound psychological effect.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

Recognition of a financial limitation may be experienced quite potently over the Full Moon phase this week. Equally, you may have made substantial progress this year and see the results of your prudence result in an enduring source of income. Those facing more of a balls to bricks reality check here do well to more clearly define objectives and form a strategy to attain them. Long range plans are in flux over the coming months, you may go back and fourth over educational goals as well. A curve ball at work next weekend can provide an upset. Easy does it.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

Trust, intimacy and commitment are the major themes of the upcoming Lunar Cycle, which begins to culminate this week with the Full Moon in your sign. A very intensive cycle began at the beginning of the year for Cap natives, and choices you made in that time period, especially those that fall on the you – me axis, are up for appraisal. An eclipse in opposition to your sign in two more weeks shows the other shoe is soon to drop and between now and January 2019 you are likely to experience quite a shift in marital status. Stay focused and true to your conviction. The Saturn cycle is demanding but offers rewards where you can keep on course.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

Mars retro from your sign will have you second guessing even your best laid plans and intentions. This period is ripe for exploration meanwhile, and likely features a key person who you want to do that exploration with. Mercury from Leo makes an extended transit – there could be some detours along the route, perhaps unfinished business with someone in your past that requires resolution before you can move forward. If you have unaddressed psychological matters to reconcile, these will be quite apparent during the Full Moon period this week. Breaking through your inner blocks and obstacles is possible when you acknowledge them in this phase.

PISCES February 19 – March 20

You are well off the radar of this week’s more heat seeking frequencies, though your friends and coworkers may be going through a lot and lean on you for support. There are some stirrings behind the scenes, meanwhile, and you may intuitively discover a source of income is right at your finger tips. Navigate this one carefully, as detours lie in store, but record ideas and put them into motion this Fall. An uncomfortable moment or mixed signals midweek may require you to clarify your position. If only you knew what it was. One step at a time and you will get there.

Weekly Forecast 6/17 -23

There is a crucial development this week around the North Node (future directives) as Venus conjoins this highly significant part of the zodiac in Leo. (The house containing 6’ Leo is indicated here – get your free chart at astro.com to calculate your ascendant and find out!) Venus combined to the North Node suggests assistance or resources that advance your objectives in this area beneficially will be granted. Your only job here is to recognize and accept what is on offer. This aspect occurs Tuesday, and while a wildly fortunate development is likely it will require dexterity to make the most of it.

Saturn forms a quincunx (150 degree) alignment from Capricorn to Venus – North Node. In order to receive the gift, there is an obligation to live up to that could diminish some of the joy connected to the more positive attributes represented by the transit. Saturn is retrograde, thus a karmic return on how successfully one has negotiated responsibilities since February in particular is highlighted. While this can make for a prickly reality check, there is the instructional value of coming to terms with where the work needs to done. Feel your way into any issue stimulating frustration or blockages because those are the topics that require resolution in the present tense. Getting down to the business at hand offers up a genuine feeling of satisfaction and can even become a significant success story by this November.

Neptune retrogrades from Monday, so if you’ve been feeling spaced out, having de ja vous or ESP experiences, repeating dream symbolisms, this peaks in intensity in the beginning of the week. Neptune has been to preparing to sublimate itself for weeks, having stationed at 16’ Pisces since early May while preparing for decent. Mercury makes beneficial aspects this week, completing the water trine from Cancer while linking up to Neptune and Jupiter. This will enable awareness and articulation of the deeper soul yearnings stimulated by the transits of both. Imagination and creativity are also incredibly enhanced, making this a good week to work on art, music or cinematic projects or to let such provide inspiration.

By the end of the week, Mercury will move into opposition with Pluto in Capricorn, generating a contentious atmosphere that can promote volatile exchanges. Calling out oppressive behavior can stimulate a cathartic confrontation. Developments now advance a decision made in January, or may demonstrate it’s logical flaws or deficiencies. In some regard a climax is reached, and the best way to handle this dynamic energy flow is to not get overwhelmed by rigidly trying to maintain your perspective at any cost, but to weigh carefully where you can transform your viewpoint in light of what is occurring now. It’s possible a secret of the deeper and darker variety is exposed. Try to regain your composure and just accordingly if so.

As Sun enters Cancer on Thursday morning, the planet meets the new Solstice, engendering a sense of progression while new growth prevails. Having matured over the last 3 months, it’s time to go within and nurture that which has been developing since the Spring equinox. The same day Venus and Mars will oppose, stimulating a lot of passion connected to a new beginning that transpired early last October. A connection can escalate quickly now, or just as swiftly breakdown, since there is a very tempestuous quality present in this meet up. With both Venus and Mars set to retrograde this year, shifting the dynamics of alliances throughout, adopting a wait and watch attitude may be your best ally.

Weekly Forecast 6/10-16

This week I would like to dedicate the Stargazer blog to my dad, John Marquis, who would have turned 66 on Friday. We lost him 10 years ago to Cancer. He was a painter and I chose 12 of his works to reflect on each of the 12 signs this week. Growing up in San Francisco, it was my dad who introduced me to astrology. We would sit in his painting studio and he’d be looking at the ephemeris, which was so mysterious and fascinating to me. As a teenager my interest grew, dad made me a card with all the astrology symbols on it for reference, and I started to pick up books by Robert Hand and other astrologers and would walk the city streets with my dad and talk about transits, aspects and other topics. He was really the coolest, RIP, miss you much. If you are interested in the artwork, check out this book my brother and I put together. ❤️

STARSCOPES:

ARIESARIES March 20 – April 19

Financial matters also need a little tweak this week, as you realize your assets are only able to take you so far at this time. Love relationships and creativity are highlighted and you may feel compelled to take things to the next level with someone who has caught your attention.

taurusTAURUS April 20 – May 20

The New Moon Wednesday emphasizes new ways to think about earnings, and you can promote yourself effectively if you are looking for extra assignments or a new position. A pessimistic streak at the end of the week could require appraisal, though this will more likely just be a passing mood. There can be some urgency to tackle a domestic project as well, or you might just suddenly feel you want to make a move. Easy does it.

geminiGEMINI May 21 – June 20

Wednesday sees the only New Moon in your sign for the year, it’s time to shake off any of the doldrums of the past and open up to new ways of life.

While you will seek to settle these matters quickly, there are some strange influences at play as well and you might just not have the whole story.

Mercury will provide a tricky ambience here through the Summer so expect this story to take a little longer to sort out.

SagSAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

A New Moon opposite you opens doors in relationships or level up a commitment for business or pleasure. Venus from Leo beginning mid week amps up your desirability, making you visible and more likely to form a pleasurable contact with someone on your wavelength.

Communication, and conducting business negotiations especially, are highlighted this week, and by the end of the week you could be making a major commitment or escalating a key partnership.

Rather than focus on what you want to get rid of focus on what you want to bring in. A good habit could easily replace a bad one at this time.

aquariusAQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

Stargazer Weekly 6/3 – 6/9

THE WAY THROUGH

This first full week of June is a bit tricky – there may be a sense of discontent and skewed perspectives with Neptune looming largely, as the Quarter Moon, Sun and Mercury all form dynamic aspects. A shift in viewpoint may reveal a blind spot or unravel an illusion. Hope for an outcome that is called into question now likely ties back to narratives set into motion during the late February – early March period. The atmosphere is vexing as you may wish to get to the bottom of a confusing issue.

At the same time, unreliable instincts make it difficult to see through the fog and mire where circumstances may seem cloaked in vagueness and uncertainty. Neptune has two sides – one is inspired and visionary, where on is able to see what no one else can, the other is hopelessly delusional. Events this week have a way of bringing these tendencies to the surface. Sun – Mercury in Gemini at odds to Neptune says it’s time to cut the shit and eliminate anything vague or fuzzy surrounding objectives and alliances.

This combination affects the initiation of the new Sun – Mercury cycle, which begins on Tuesday, and indicates there are beguiling undertones. This conjunction occurs at 15’ Gemini and establishes the objectives and daily agenda for essentially the next four months. Forming a square to Neptune (at 16’ Pisces and retrograding June 18,) that agenda is going to be either genuinely inspired, incredibly misguided or some combination of the two. Add in the upcoming Mars retrograde period, and you have all the ingredients for a pretty unusual Summer session. This does not indicate that nothing of value can develop in this period, but that to reach your pot of gold, a slow and tenacious approach is going to be required, as are constant reality checks, several of which are issued this week. This will be a better period in which to bring things to conclusion, less so for starting anything new.

Mars conjuncts South Node on Thursday at 7’ Aquarius, the first of 3 connections to occur over the coming Mars retrograde phase. The prolonged and protracted nature of this transit describes a situation that really, really, really requires complete eradication. Clues emerge later this week about what that is – examine where you feel most stuck, or what specifically seems to be holding you back from making a significant movement forward. This aspect punctuates the whole of next weekend, since Mars is transiting so slowly. This topic is revisited in July then late September. What occurs from the end of the week should kick start a process of self discovery and examination of the attitudes, and who/what/where are ready to be added to the endangered species list, then purged and eliminated.

Rather than stew or fester in frustration with what isn’t working out, the way through is to embrace and embody those North Node directives. First decan Leo is stimulated, so this is the area of your chart in which you can find success. Take a proactive rather than corrective approach by attending to this area and placing your energy into the experiences that are promoting growth. In doing so, the more debilitated aspects reconcile themselves and fall away graciously. Let Leo keywords: passion, bravery, conviction, strength and creativity, guide your choices.

Venus triggers the degree of the upcoming Cancer Solar Eclipse (occurring on July 13th) on Tuesday and points to the direction of the future and where more constructive action can be taken. Signals or events on this day have the potential to stimulate awareness of what is set to occur, as relationships and resources that arrive now are positively paving the way for what will soon manifest.

A hard connection to Pluto underscores what needs to be transformed and reveals truths that must be confronted. A culminating event connected to January occurs and it’s possible there is a big rethink on an objective established at the beginning of the year, or that a surrender of some sort is required to move forward. Intense feelings are aroused. Regeneration is a huge theme here, so perhaps a period of gestation is required while the soul and psychic realm attend to the metamorphosis occurring within.

STARSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

You may realize certain affiliations are coming to a conclusion. Relationships that are no longer contributing to your growth will likely end over the Summer months. Use your words carefully this week as beguiling influences may cause you to misspeak or represent yourself inappropriately. Career matters are culminating now and a project or assignment you began earlier this year demonstrates whether it has the stuff to help you ascend to the next level.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Financials are in frame, and promoting your talents can be effective for the most part over the next few weeks. Meanwhile, you may start to realize that an enterprise may not be working out as you would have wanted and it’s time to switch gears or try another tack. All this gets clearer from September, and using the next few months to clear the decks for something better is advised. Friendships and alliances may not live up to your expectations, let go of disappointment.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

Big changes to your income or earnings is on queue over the next 6 months – you get a signal this week of what may be heading your way. Follow your instincts in the early part of the week, and though professional matters could have unsettling outcomes right now, there is something to be said for seeing a situation for what it really is. Protect your self interests in your dealings, there is a mysterious atmosphere present and lots of misinformation floating around.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

Venus present in your sign likely helps to protect you through some of the more bewildering currents that occur this week. Clues arrive that herald very significant changes on the horizon. Meanwhile, intuition is skewed and mixed messages arise producing a rather beguiling atmosphere. A partnership may culminate this week and intensifying passions will either bring you closer together or push you apart. For the time being the best you can do is wait and watch in some matters, though following your heart is always the way to go.

LEO July 23 – August 22

You desire to move forward with a cherished objective, but there is a challenge to overcome first related to a very private or intimate matter. A significant conversation occurs that sets you in the right direction, but there is also an obscure matter that requires navigation to bring this to the right conclusion. Relational matters can have troubling overtones, you may be coming to the realization that someone isn’t right for you, or otherwise your partner may be going through changes that you have to adjust to. Dynamics in the work place can be unsettling. There is change here too you have to accommodate.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

A partnership may come into question this week, especially where you have glossed over certain aspects of a person or affiliation that are actually really inappropriate for you. To the extent you have remained above board and been honest with yourself as well as this person at the other end of the see saw, there can be substantive support for professional growth, although in the case something surfaces this week that has unsettling consequences, there may be delays in the realization of your objectives.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Professional attainments are in view and you may get an indication this week of a big development that swiftly escalates your position between now and next January, with a really substantial shift coming into play mid July (eclipse time). Tense dynamics at home suggest someone isn’t really on board with where you are headed, but here you have to choose for yourself the best course of action. Your upward trajectory is enhanced by your stellar reputation. A bad habit could be holding you back, meanwhile, so release those that are having a negative impact on your productivity.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

Idealism in a love relationship can prove to be less than so this week, as a revealing episode uncovers not all the cards were out on the table, and you are required to see things for what they are, not as you would like them to be. As you are in an intensive period of metamorphosis, this will likely to play to how and what you need to change. As trust is the most essential ingredient to any intimate relationship, at this time you have to get real with how honest you have been not only with a close partner but with yourself. Certain domestic matters and issues rooted in your upbringing are coming to conclusion as you will begin to become aware of next weekend. It’s time to clean house – literally + figuratively.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

Relational dynamics can throw you this week as someone asserts themselves in a rather provocative way. This has a way of triggering other insecurities you may being experiencing especially where your family history is concerned, though you should also consider the source of the message and whether the person delivering it is actually qualified to do so. Aspects of daily life may reveal where you have been confined in your thinking, it might be time to drop a limiting belief or idea and adopt a more progressive attitude.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

Intensification in a relationship is possible, and events that unfold between this week and mid July could alter your status swiftly and rather unexpectedly. You wield a lot of power, but someone who has gotten to you is going through their own changes and you either need to be on board with these or abandon ship. Significant matters regarding work and money are also apparent in this zodiac, with a transformation occurring in how you earn your living and the potential for mergers and partnerships to offer vast opportunities for growth and abundance. Clues at the end of the week can signal where this is all heading.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

You continue to outgrow elements of your life and this week will provide a huge stimulation to shed a skin or two to make room for a new and improved self image. A tactic or agenda you have been pushing could be coming up to nil, indicating where you need to rethink your position and find a new way to do things. In a climate of rapid evolution such as this one, remain amenable to whatever arises, taking things a day at a time. A glaring financial issue that emerges, meanwhile, requires immediate attention.

PISCES February 19 – March 20

It’s not you Pisces, it’s a weird week for everyone out there, though the strangeness present in the current climate seems to affect you most personally. Midweek is a turning point, and you are looking deep within for answers. Some of the confusing issues present might turn back on you, and you will have to evaluate where you may have contributed to a misunderstanding, even if unwittingly. You get a sense of what you need to release, this clears the way for an unexpectedly meaningful development for you on a creative level or through romantic love that can offer genuine pleasure.

STARGAZER JUNE HOROSCOPE

Mars and Venus come to occupy opposite corners of the sky scape – Venus will enter demonstrative Leo on the 13th while Mars slows in aloof Aquarius, retrograding on the 26th. This indicates that something requires a deeper concentration of focus that will take until early October to resolve. Mars retrograde points to having to work through something carefully and deliberately. If a project has been shelved because you have been too busy to attend to it, the Summer months are ideal for completing unfinished business. The cycle initiated at the end of July 2017 (Sun/Mars conjunct in Leo) reaches a culminating peak next month, and a new strategy or directive may be required before a matter can be finalized.

Look to the house Mars rules in your chart, as this area is also susceptible to delays or requires reconfiguration. You can have your chart calculated for free at astro.com to find out more. 

Venus and Mars not only oppose on the 21st, but both make contact with the nodes – Venus to the North Node (June 19th) and Mars to the South Node (June 8th), signaling discord as well as the implications of past and future choices. Venus seems to be on the right side of the law here, aligning with the future orientation of the North Node. Mars less so, as it combines with South Node (for the first of three times this Summer) indicating energy that is stuck or stagnated, and possibly caught up in a drama connected to prior energy patterns that needs to be released. If you notice yourself reverting to old tactics to solve new problems, this is where the work needs to get done.

The message of the Universe right now is somewhat paradoxical – Venus in Leo seeks to ardently pursue what captures ones’ heart and offers pleasure with conviction. What is required of the present moment is courageousness, though simultaneously there is diminishment of momentum because Mars is slowing. This could (and should) manifest in the expression of creative or romantic energy, though Venus is a receptive planet and this could just as equally indicate heightened responsiveness to these energies.

Remaining resonant to the message of the heart chakra and cultivating relations through a spiritual, rather than intellectual, connection is highlighted. The detached, logical approach of Aquarius is debilitated by the South Node, and does not serve the current opportunity for evolutionary growth. The opposition of Venus and Mars will intensify love contacts and stimulate passion in a vitalizing culmination of the cycle that began October 5th last year. New chapters begin, though some will conclude at this point if they prove untenable. Permutations and adjustments occur in July that lead to clearer circumstances by August.

The 5th signals the beginning of the next Sun – Mercury cycle, and the most active weeks  occurring between now and July 8. Activities or projects that are initiated now will have a major significance for daily life and communication through September 20th. Business enterprises are highlighted, but look to 15’ Gemini in your chart for the details of where this occurs for you. This cycle will unfold through the Leo Mercury retrograde cycle this Summer – a 10 week transit in Leo is upcoming, further upping the ante on all those themes of self expression previously mentioned.

STARSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

A professional culmination at the end of the month could see you switching gears in your career. One door closes, another one opens. Praise for your hard work is also due. You find your energy level is a bit low and may need to take some time out over the coming months (Mars is retrograde from the 27th) to recuperate from a highly active professional phase. A passionate love alliance could be forming this month with an event or an introduction on the 19th sprinkled with fairy dust. Kismet meetings are likely, keep your eyes open. Someone from the past can make an appearance around the 8th, you’ll feel an immediate sense of comfort and kinship. Some vexing indications in a romantic relationship can feature on the 21st, as Venus and Mars oppose, stirring up passionate sexual chemistry, but equally disharmony, watch out!

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

You could embark on a new money making prospect on the 5th, and this activity or enterprise will be a large part of your daily routine for the next four months. The New Moon on the 13th signals the beginning of a new earnings phase. You may stall professionally or connect with an old ally on the 8th, a fated quality seems to prevail in your professional associations, especially with men, and you could receive a reward for prior work or achievement. Promotion is unlikely in this phase, and if you do make a move it is likely to be lateral. Domestic bliss and harmony reign supreme on the 19th, you can beautify or entertain at home to incredible success. Feisty energy affects love and financials on the 21st. This can signify a really passionate tryst or downright combat. Where you sit on the mine – yours’ – ours spectrum suggests how this plays out.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

A New Moon in your sign on the 13th gives you a bit of a new lease on life. You are still in a positive mind set with Mercury transiting your sign and the first weeks of the month will pass by briskly, as many activities, conversations and excursions fill your days. You may make a really brilliant connection creatively or intellectually on the 19th. Expect a delightful surprise encounter in your day to day routine. A conversation could lead to a romantic encounter, and if there is something about this connection that feels fated, go with it. Social activities will hold appeal, especially those with an artistic flair to them. This is a great time to enjoy or produce poetry, theater or any other creative endeavor that gets your juices flowing. Cappy Full Moon on the 28th can serve up a cold hard truth about a financial reality, this is going to be more likely if you have serious debt. You are just as likely to see an intimate relationship gets really serious. Commitments made now will certainly stand the test of time.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

Very strong financial indicators are at play as your value system and the balance of mine vs ours is going through a significant transformation. You start to come more into your own and are reminded why self reliance is the direction you should be heading in. A shortfall at the beginning of the month, either due to a banking oversight or a partner not being able to do their share, will set the tone. The 19th brings a revealing moment or toss a shred of luck your way and you’ll definitely want to pay attention to cues, even if they are subtle. Venus and Mars oppose on the 21st, highlighting tension between themes of ownership, resources and trust. This can be mildly explosive, but there is absolutely no reason it has to be – the lines simply need to be redrawn, and while it may take a few more months to hammer down the right agreement, what happens now at least gets the conversation started. The Capricorn Full Moon on the 28th is right next to Saturn, another chance to make a binding in commitment in business or love if you are ready…

LEO July 23 – August 22

Attention is divided between an exciting social life and a desire for privacy and reflection. Try to divide your time at your discretion. Don’t feel bad if you have to turn down an invitation or two while you navigate your interior space and clear the way for new beginnings. Partnerships are in the mainframe of your attention, and you may not be able to see eye to eye with this person right now. Where you want to move forward, you sense they want to move backwards. It’s also possible someone from the past reemerges and snatches you back into the past tense. Uh oh! Be wary of such things around the 8th, but also advised if someone shows up, fate played a role and there is unfinished karmic business to attend to. Mars retrograde from the 27th sets the stage for a long drawn out affair… Venus in Leo from the 14th will make you a responsive recipient of advances, affection and all forms of flattery, and the 21st could truly turn up a kismet romantic opportunity.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

A new professional undertaking begins on the 5th and you’ll likely see this endeavor unfold over the next 4 months. The New Moon on the 13th can also open doors, but be careful with this one as there are hidden strings attached or more that meets the eye. Sounds too good to be true? Probably is. There is sort of a push – pull dynamic at work where you aren’t really sure how much time and effort you want to put into work life right now, or you might be cooling off on your current position. Mars is slowing in it’s orbit and there is a palpable lag in energy and motivation. Meanwhile, exciting developments behind the scenes make you want to steal away and enjoy solitude or privacy. This dynamic is made most clear by events on the 8th and 19th.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

You may feel as though you are moving forward and backwards at the same time, as both past and future tenses are activated this month. It’s possible you reconnect with a former lover at this time, around the 8th is peak of intensity, or you might otherwise feel limited by someone or your circumstances. You will experience growth working with others, as friends and group activities have a positive evolutionary spin on them, and a creative, collaborative project could really be exciting on the 19th. A sense of personal completion is possible during the Full Moon phase on the 28th. This relates to a home or personal matter and a decision or agreement you make now has very long term ramifications. A sense of austerity might prevail, and you may be delaying more personal gratification to make a serious commitment to a domestic issue – moving house or settling down. Mars goes roundabout from the 27th, directly impacting your partnership and love relations. There could be a separation related to work or an educational opportunity, and the divide you feel with someone could have less to do with a lack of feelings between you, but merely be a necessity at this time. Creativity slows, it’s time to think and reconsider your trajectory of the prior year.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

Events on the 8th can bring up feelings of limitation or issues from the past requiring resolution in a domestic matter. It’s time to leave a circumstance behind, though of course this is easier said then done and could take a few more months to resolve in it’s entirety. Strong stimulation to achievement and your goals, perhaps even resources to realize them are present on the 19th and remind you where you need to go and why. Kismet meetings are likely all month, some steering you into the future and some reminding you of the past. An important financial agreement or partnership begins on the 5th, a negotiation you strike now bears on the activities and events of the upcoming four months. This is amplified on the 13th, during the New Moon. Your star is on the rise and you can make a great impression on the public and those in a position to help you move up the ladder of success. Don’t get haughty about your successes, as embarrassments on the 21st and 25th are possible if you do.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

Relational dynamics remain a high priority, and a New Moon on the 13th begins a new chapter in your committed partnership. Things can really heat up if you are traveling and a fated meeting on the 19th can lead to a liaison rather unexpectedly. Sultry vibrations on the 21st could be too good to resist, and diving in could be just what you need right now. Financial matters involving banks, institutions, an inheritance or your parters’ income factor largely from the middle of the month. If you are joining forces with a business partner or a spouse you can spell out all the details on the 13th or 19th. There are more problematic or contentious issues to deal with on the 15th, 23rd and 27th, so these are better left aside where you are seeking success in negotiations. A conclusion to a money matter, perhaps phasing out a source of income, or cashing in on a job well done occurs on the 28th. An event or insight you experience on the 8th stirs nostalgia for the past, or equally can serve to remind you of something you need to let go of. This process endures through September.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

There could be a financial reckoning of sorts this month as the Nodes play an interesting role with Venus and Mars, activating the axis of personal versus shared resources. It’s the shared equity or pooling of resources that gets you further, and you may even see a source of income dwindling or coming to an end around the 8th. Venus, Mercury and later the Sun all enhance your potentials to make positive gains within your relationship, with the 1st, 2nd, and 23rd all highlighted to bring about significant new developments. From mid month, the shift is on intimacy and there will be new erotic currents flowing that will be spicing things up for you nicely. Very enticing vibrations on the 21st could be a touch stormy, and there could be a palpable urgency to connect with someone. The 26th provides a turning point, and a relationship could get serious now. The Full Moon in your sign on the 28th will also enable you to define and refine your commitment. Saturn in close contact could indicate a big professional move, and taking on more responsibility and authority. Mars retrogrades at the end of the month, signaling a review of finances will be in order though the Summer months.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

The emphasis is on self expression and pleasure. Significant developments in your relationships from mid month can restore harmony and bring people with exciting potential into your orbit. A new creative venture or even a love affair could begin on the 5th. This project or relationship will be the mainstay of your activities for the next four months. You’ll experience a transformation next month when Mercury retrogrades, especially within a relationship that begins now. Romance is highlighted and especially potent on the 19th and 21st, as well as the New Moon phase on the 13th. There could be sudden and impulsive decisions, especially if you feel a soul mate connection with someone you meet during this period. Passion runs strong, though Mars is slowing and will retrograde in your sign on the 27th. This will require some rethinking on your behalf, and suggests you take things slowly, especially in regard to matters of the heart. These are more likely to stabilize from September, even though very powerful contacts throughout the Summer will generate a lot of energy between you and your partner. Release yourself from the grip of the past on the 8th.

PISCES February 19 – March 20

You want to be invisible, but this is really a great time to showcase your talents, so get out there! You can take time out to recharge as required, (though it might be worthwhile to examine yourself on the 8th, strange habits which seem to be draining your effectiveness are revealing themselves now). A shift in your domestic zone that you initiate on the 5th will likely become a major endeavor over the next four months, making this an ideal time for renovation or redecorating projects, or considering relocation. Check developments on the 13th for an important status report. You are tuning into what you want, unfortunately there seem to be some mixed signals. Necessity and clarity will aid you from the 15th – 19th. You can more easily tune into your heart’s desires. The first few weeks are quite romantic and you can develop a mutual bond of attraction and affection over the early days of the month. The 5th signals a turning point, are you all in, or all out? Your mind will be on love, but there could be some demands on your time at work. You won’t mind, since you like what you are doing so much. Energy slows at the end of the month, drawing you further inward.

Weekly Forecast 5/27-6/2

A great deal precipitates this week, as several lush punctuation marks shape the days ahead. The Sagittarius Full Moon beams down on Tuesday, stimulating adventurous and inquisitive energies. Saturn provides a difficult obstacle within this alignment and can be a bit of a spoiler where the attainment of freedom is sought. Mars also plays a strong role during the Full Moon phase -connecting harmoniously – so there is an energizing boost that helps to bring something into form. In many ways the Full Moon speaks to what was and what will be. More recently, Saturn transited this region of the zodiac, inspiring constriction of efforts and clearing out the superfluous. Jupiter will move into this area upcoming, stimulating growth and prosperity in regard to issues that may have taken a bit of a hit during the Saturn transit, so it’s likely the Full Moon reveals clues as to the changes due.

Conjunct Antares, the Full Moon has the potential to trigger obsessive or obstinate behavior. The star that sits in the Heart of Scorpio is a rather intense and powerful point! Look to events around 2 years ago, as these still seem to require resolution. (Both Saturn and Mars made long transits this degree – 8′ Sagittarius – during that period.)

Mars at this point is conjunct the degree of the Lunar eclipse that occurs at the end of July, spending most of the week hovering over 4’ Aquarius. Something set into motion this week (and particularly around the time of the Full Moon) is likely to play into the stunning developments that occur over the Eclipse Season, so be on the lookout for clues and intuition into what is going to come up down the road. A choice made now could have a direct bearing on how successful you will be in about 2 months time and what kind of opportunities will emerge. Incidentally, Mars will have returned to this degree precisely and conjunct the Lunar Eclipse in July, so events are quite forth telling.

Mercury enters Gemini on Tuesday PM, a brisk transit that lasts for a mere 2 weeks since Mercury is traveling at it’s fastest speed through June. Curiosity is stimulated, and there can be a lot of diversions and interesting people to meet and speak to. There is a busyness indicated, and many matters that require attention. This is a wonderful time for tying up loose ends, especially where a paper trail is involved or contracts need to be signed.

Venus from Cancer at the end of the week taps Jupiter and Neptune in a Grand Water Trine. This is a marvelous ambience for expressing love and affection, enhancing the emotional ties that flow between people. While not an overtly romantic influence, (from water signs this energy takes place below the surface, within a highly subjective realm) these aspects provide a great back drop for understanding the deeper feelings aroused through personal connections. Imagination is also invigorated, making the end of the week ideal for creating art projects or attending an art or musical reception. If there has been uncertainty where sentiments or the future of a relationship lies, these aspects promote intimacy and coming to terms with the hearts desires.

Friday will also see Mercury and Mars in trine, an excellent time for making a presentation or proposal. Get something moving, guided by the awareness all the pieces might not fall into place until late September. The destination will be reached, although not necessarily in the way it’s expected to.
