Weekly Forecast 11/18 – 24

WEEKLY FORECAST:
While not the biggest week on record for aspects, an incredibly volatile Full Moon in Gemini at the end of the week more than makes up for it. A t-square involving Gemini – Moon opposite Sagittarius -Sun/Jupiter squares Mars in Pisces stimulating a lot of mutable (adaptive) energy and likely creating a sense of disorientation or even crisis. Underscored by Mercury retrograde, the ruler of the Full Moon, an extra layer of complexity emerges during critical culminations in this phase. Those with chart factors in early degrees of mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) will feel this most intensely, as they will be aspected at this time. Since adjustments to the recent change of guard – Mars/Pisces and Jupiter/Sagittarius are still being made, this can all come on quite suddenly.

Mercury had angled Neptune as it stationed retrograde, making an almost perfect, but not quite exact square, which will finally culminate on December 24th. This could come out as a desire to understand or reveal something illusory, but something inside isn’t quite ready to confront it just yet. Neptune resumes direct motion next Saturday, having been retrograde since mid June. Here you will begin to see progress in the area Neptune rules in your chart by house as well as the area being transited (13’ Pisces). For what it is worth, the apparent backwards trajectory of Mercury will put it touch with Jupiter two more times – again next week and then on December 24th. Large scale endeavors seek escalation, and by the end of the year there is the potential to put something in motion connected to media, higher education or exploration.

Mars square Jupiter on Monday provides a jump start for this endeavor, though from Pisces, energy is muted, and the undercurrent is a bit unusual. Still, you can use this to check into a source of inspiration. Likely there is a development in a story line that began in early January, and events around this time are likely to remind you that while the trajectory on this one may have been a bit convoluted (Mars retrograde), that you were on a path towards something, even if the objective or destination has been altered substantially. Mars/Aries and Jupiter/Sagittarius will combine more effortlessly towards the end of January next year, and depending on how well you navigate a sudden and potentially bewildering turn of events this week, your efforts are likely to pay off well in about two months time.

temperance

Sun moves into Sagittarius on Thursday, bringing more emphasis to the fire element, stimulating inspiration and enthusiasm. With Mercury and Venus both respectively moving back towards Scorpio in December, this won’t last for too long, so enjoy the sense of regeneration and confidence that precipitates over the coming weeks. The Sun will meet Jupiter next week, beginning a new cycle of optimism, enthusiasm and expansion at 4’ Sagittarius, opening the door to adventure and new horizons. If things get a bit dicey this week, hang in there! Take it a day at a time. Much more is in store on the other side.

Weekly Forecast 11/11 – 17

RELEASING CONSTRAITS

WEEKLY FORECAST:
Despite the next Mercury retrograde cycle looming largely in the forecast this week, there are some positive indications in the mix with progress on some fronts due. By then end of the week, Mars moves into Pisces, after a prolonged period spent in Aquarius due to the recent retrograde. The following day, Venus will go direct from 25’ Libra, with both events stimulating positive changes for the protagonists of a love story that has very much been a work in progress since October of last year. More harmonious conditions prevail under these auspices, and where the heart has been uncertain, between now and January, accord can be reached in key commitments, particularly from mid December, when a string of helpful aspects between Venus – Scorpio and Mars – Pisces strengthens the emotional bond between partners immeasurably.

Mars from Pisces is not it’s strongest placement, as the forceful nature of Mars is muted and rather difficult to express. This makes the rest of the year more ideal for reflection and release, and meditation and other practices that enhance a connection to the metaphysical world will enhance the spiritual realm and enable emotions to flourish. From New Year it’s all systems forward, with a huge thrust of energy when Mars moves into Aries, connecting with Jupiter in Sagittarius and Uranus (back in Aries) in January – February 2019. For the time being, space clearing is essential to preparing for what awaits next year. This is a season of resolution, precipitating a season of revolution.

Sun sextile Pluto (Sunday) and Mars sextile Uranus (Thursday) both hold the potential for progress. These aspects denote the final phases of storylines (to continue on that theme of closure,) to prepare for the new cycles – Sun/Pluto renews on January 10th (20’ Capricorn), Mars/Uranus on February 12th (29’ Aries) of next year. These are game changing aspects, although the effects can be somewhat subtle. Sun and Pluto invigorate a desire to transform ones self, in order to influence circumstances or a particular outcome. This ties back to something initiated in early in January, when the current cycle began. There is passion and conviction at your disposal to release yourself from a troubling issue, and something you have dedicated to yourself this year finally reveals it’s promise. A person or habit that has held you back in some way can be relinquished easily at this time.

Mars and Uranus collaborating points to an innovative breakthrough, or finding a new way to do something that offers a solution to a problem that has been persistent since mid May. Where you have sought independence (Uranus in Aries,) you may discover the escape hatch. People are more willing to comply (or even assist) with your efforts this week. This aspect occurs about 12 hours before Mars leaves Aquarius on Thursday, a sort of a last hurrah after a long period of tinkering behind the scenes on a project or within an association meant to offer you greater independence to do things the way you choose to. This could accelerate suddenly and unexpectedly after months of vexing uncertainty. The current Mars/Uranus cycle began in March of 2017, so anticipate the resolution of what emerged in that period and prepare for the exciting new cycle that begins in February.

The troubling bit over the next few weeks is of course the Mercury retrograde cycle, which commences on Friday. This is exacerbated by a long square aspect made to Neptune between the 14th and 20th of this month. It’s a very tricky few days during which the boundaries of fact and fiction are blurred. On one hand, there is creative potential here, as perception is skewed just enough to see things in a way that transcends reality, the imaginative realm is highly stimulated and great art can come out of this. Not so much for communication, relationships and most certainly business matters, however, as the thought process is muddled and confusion reigns supreme. What emerges during this transit has the potential to reveal where a delusion has occurred, and this can point to a disappointment, though the positive response would be recognition where work has to take place to bring a dream or vision into reality. Over the next 3 weeks this will be attended to, with a final culminating event occurring on December 24th that sets a matter to rest.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

You gain traction professionally in the early part of the week, stay focused on the prize and be willing to make changes as necessary. Relational matters begin to be settled from the end of the week, and a reconciliation is possible where reversals may have occurred over the last few months. Meanwhile, you turn inward and take a more reflective stance through the end of the year as attention turns away from social dynamics that have predominated for most of the year and you start to consider where you really want to go next. From December onward you will have much more clarity about this, for the time being examining all your options is advised.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Your ruling planet begins to return to form, signaling a period that may have been debilitating for your self image or esteem is on the road to reconciliation. Much of this comes from the inner reflection that has occurred over the last several weeks, and returning to your values where they may have been abandoned in the interest of keeping the peace. The timing is good, as you enter a more socially motivated phase and can join forces with like minded people to achieve your aspirations. Knowing what you can offer or bring to the equation enhances your prospects to connect with individuals or an organization that benefits you.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

There is the potential to reconcile a romantic relationship that had derailed or sidetracked recently, though it’s likely you will still second guess yourself (or perhaps the other person is still questioning,) curtailing a commitment to be made for a few more weeks. For the time being, you may find it more appealing to seek pleasure within, and pursue personal hobbies or creative activities that provide an outlet for self expression. Your life direction may also be in question, and it could be that your inability to chart a certain course is hindering an association to take root. From December this becomes more clear, and you start to get indications beginning towards the end of the week of the shape your future is taking, likely taking on some more responsibilities to arrive there.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

There could be a significant development in a personal relationship early in the week. You arrive at a decision to make a substantive change within your commitments and see immediate transformation. Mars from Pisces encourages you to embrace the future, charging your sense of excitement to broaden your scope of activities and reach out further that you have previously gone. Work commitments or health issues could hinder the progress you seek at the same time, and something requires drastic reorganization between now and the first week of December. Renew your perspective on how you handle your daily affairs and from there, you can take flight.

LEO July 23 – August 22

The Sun continues to activate your root base with developments early in the week set to transform conditions in some way. A personal relationship is also highlighted and there could be unanticipated, but welcome, changes to your status on Thursday. Mixed signals arrive from Friday, and a situation with someone you care about mutates in strange ways over the coming weeks. You may even resurrect a prior love connection to see if there is still any juicy romantic sparks left in there. Maybe, maybe not, and it’s likely the jury is out on this one until at least mid December, so take it slow! Mars moves into the area of your chart that influences intimacy and deep, soul contract relationships. A period of inner transformation lasts through New Year.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

Things are about to get intense in your closest alliances for better or worse from the end of the week. Mars has the capability to bring incredible passion to your alliance, but equally conflict if you or the person sitting on the other side of the scales does not feel they are getting their fair due in a one on one relationship. If single, this period could bring urgency to finding a mate. Domestic matters will preoccupy you over the coming weeks, and likely some degree of upheaval is due on the home front while circumstances go through reconsideration and metamorphosis. You seem to have to resolve an outstanding issue to open the door to the commitment you desire. A sense of frustration at the end of the week regarding this should point you to where a solution is required.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Feelings of uncertainty or insecurity begin to dissipate over the coming weeks, following a period of crucial reappraisal of your identity and life direction. Personal matters, and what is required of you to resolve an endemic issue on the home front becomes crystal clear in the early part of the week. Make a plan to move this forward during the first month of the new year. Your productivity spikes through December, providing you with a fortuitous period in which to pursue professional goals. The hard work you commit to now pays off next Summer in a major promotion. A breakthrough in a relationship or through a new acquaintance can be exciting Thursday.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

You get a second chance to reorganize your financials over the next few weeks, and a big opportunity en route can inspire a major success story if you give it time. Getting this sorted enables you to achieve a long range goal associated with a creative project or to begin a new, or new chapter in a love relationship that has been difficult to get off the ground. Pay attention to feelings or tension around this subject at the end of the week for clues. Where you sense a limitation is exactly where you need to go to find resolution. By December you are golden.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

An elongated transit of Mercury in your sign (through January 5, woah!) makes life brisk and exciting. Many events and meetings with people fill your days through the end of the year. The retrograde period can pull people from your past back into your orbit, and through these contacts you may come to realize personal traits you have outgrown, or otherwise rediscover aspects of yourself you would like to reactivate. Meanwhile, Mars moves into your root base, activating a desire to attend to personal or domestic matters, perhaps as a matter of necessity as this transit can stimulate strife or conflict at your residence. If nothing else, expect a lot of activity to be taking place at home, perhaps hosting guests or renovating your space.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

Sun from Scorpio continues to generate a productive ambience to achieve your aspirations, and especially where you collaborate with others, you are likely to meet with success. Venus direct at the end of the week extends a second chance or new opportunity to enhance your reputation and make positive strides in your professional life. Advancement is likely now, following a period of reappraisal of the where, how, and what of your life direction over the past six weeks. Mercury meanwhile could lead you on a trip down memory road and matters pertaining to the past require resolution over the coming weeks. If people from the past show up now, settle the unfinished business between you once and for all.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

Mars finally leaves your sign towards the final days of the week, taking some of the heat and intensity off you directly and placing more emphasis on the financial aspects that require attention. This could get a little tangled in the later days of the week, where the bubble bursts on a much desired outcome involving your earnings or savings. An oversight or unanticipated expense could prove concerning. Thursday is particularly exciting and a conversation or meeting will be stimulating. You see how far you have come this year and are ready to embark on a new chapter. Reconnecting with people from your past seems to feature meanwhile, and there could be a reunion on the cards for you between now and December.

PISCES February 19 – March 20

After a long year of indescribable complexity if not confusion, Pisces is ready to enter the building. Having shed a lot of skin since May, you feel a sense of rebirth precipitating. From Thursday, when Mars enters your sign, you are emboldened and impassioned to make big moves, and over the next year stand to make incredible strides in your profession. First it seems you need to untangle a matter associated with your self image, and this will be incredibly pointed at the end of the week when Mercury retrogrades against Neptune in your sign. Your potency is hindered by a lack of clarity regarding how you represent yourself and between now and Yule you will be charged to figure this one out to make the most of the positive professional auspices available to you.

Stargazer November Forecast

CHANGING STATIONS

There are palpable shifts in the atmosphere this month as longstanding transits come complete, marshaling in a new order of energetic awareness. Quite significantly, and possibly the most obvious in the immediate sense is that Mars will finally leave Aquarius for Pisces on the 15th. Having remained mainly in Aquarius since mid May, and transiting a mere 10 degrees of the zodiac between May and early October, due to a retrograde cycle holding pattern, the Pisces transit offers something very different than what was consistent throughout most of 2018, most notably bringing a rich, flowing energy within the realm of feelings, far removed from the more intellectual preoccupations of Mars – Aquarius. This transit lasts through the final day of the year, when the new cycle begins at 0’ Aries. For six weeks, it’s time to withdraw somewhat and shift consciousness into the emotional space and sensations within. Drawing towards the end of the 2 year cycle, it’s also potent for release and closure of occurrences now past.

Mars connects to the degree of the Aquarius Solar Eclipse that occurred on February 15th, triggering the potential for the developments that haven’t/couldn’t fully come to fruition since, again – because of the retro cycle of Mars. Events that occur around the 11th and 12th of November resonate with the intentions of that eclipse (look at 27’ Aquarius in your chart for the particular space where this happens). Something that began to unfold in the February period, a door that opened up for you and offered liberation in some aspect of your life, can now be walked through. Aquarius is off beat, and the best way to do this is to find your own way to do it. Explore an unconventional method or avenue and remain open minded about this topic as it likely yields surprising developments or results around these critical dates.

By the time this transit occurs, the Nodal Axis will have shifted from Leo/Aquarius to Cancer/Capricorn. This occurs on the 6th of November and will play out through early May, 2020. The evolutionary objective shifts towards cultivating a more nurturing and supportive atmosphere, and the house in your chart or area being transited is where you will find your root base and feel most at home or develop a sort of extended family or tribe. It could literally translate into building a home, particularly if NN passes through your 4th, 8th or possibly 12th house. The Cancer Eclipse on July 13th provided indications of what was in store.

Jupiter moves into Sagittarius on the 8th, beginning a transit that will last through the beginning of December in a years time. Jupiter is at home in Sagittarius, and from this new viewpoint can express its capacity for benevolence and expansion to the fullest. At its worst it can be a pugnacious placement, as a single minded or narrow viewpoint attached to religious doctrine and the like generates a perspective unwilling to see or understand the perspectives of others. Sagittarius is the opposite of Gemini, who essentially occupies the multiverse of perspectives and granular bits (or bytes) of information.

Overall, it should be a positive and successful placement for many, and will infuse this area of your zodiac with optimism for better outcomes in the aftermath of the recent passage of Saturn, offering the potential for regrowth and rebirth of what may have been lost, sacrificed or at least harder to come by in prior years. Structure and disciple in this area is now replaced with ease and abundance, or more likely, facing reality and doing hard work in this area now reveals the bounty and fruition of the crop you carefully attended between September 2015 and last December.

Venus retrograde/direct and the Mercury retrograde transits will be explored in greater detail on the weekly blog. Have a great month! Subscribe on Patreon for extended readings!

ARIES March 20 – April 19

A period of transition comes to an end mid month, a loved one may return to the fold after a long hiatus or you may settle your feelings once and for all regarding this partnership. A trip or educational pursuit that had been in the works may need to be postponed, mischievous Mercury retrogrades from the 17th and makes it tricky to get on the road. If you do travel, publish, lecture or have media presentations to make that can’t be altered, do check and double check all itineraries and reservations carefully before you go. From the 9th, a highly regarded transit of Jupiter in Sagittarius will offer you incredible optimism and foresight from which you can really derive a personal sense of reward and pleasure. Your world is about to expand. North Node shifts into Cancer, and home and family become a deep pull for you.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Venus remains in retrograde motion through mid month, impacting health and productivity matters. You may reconnect with old colleagues or even take a job position you had held previously. This is a great period to address any bad habits or tendencies that may have an adverse impact on your physical energy and well being. The day after Venus resumes direct motion, Mercury shifts backwards, it’s like you can’t win! Mercury will have an impact on shared finances, so if you have debt owed or to collect, this is an appropriate time to settle matters. Jupiter departs Scorpio on the 9th, taking some of that lustre off a key relationship, but shifting into a deeper and more intimate realm. From the 5th Uranus gives you a reprieve, moving back into Aries, giving you till next March to reflect on the numerous changes you have been considering. A Scorpio New Moon on the 15th could signal openings for a love connection to flourish. Very testing influences on the 30th could rock the boat.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

The road to love continues to be a long and winding one, though you do hit a sweet spot on the 9th and feelings will especially be heightened if you are abroad exploring or sharing a journey together. This to and fro motion continues through early December, you have to learn to just ride the waves for now. Jupiter in Sagittarius from the 9th will bring the right one in. You are protected over the next year, and guiding forces will enhance your connections immeasurably. From the 23rd – 27th you may come to a conclusion, though it is still best to wait until next month to make that move. Where a work promotion may have gone sideways, or a situation didn’t quite come together for you last month a new or better offer could be present around the New Moon on the 7th. The Lunation makes strong and positive connections to Pluto, as well as Neptune in your house of career so there could be themes of glamour and power which tap into your wishes for advancement.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

The New Moon on the 7th stimulates many of the romantic themes of the last year, just as Jupiter bids adieu, having lit up your love life since last October, (hopefully!). Venus direct on the 16th signals a sea change, and second chances are possible next month as a double dip in your house of pleasure finally sets things right between you and a certain someone. Work and home are priority for the time being, as Mercury (soon to be retrograde) and Jupiter collaborate to get you into tip top shape and at your most productive, while bringing a work opportunity your way, silver platter style. (See the 26th for details.) Of course a lot of this gets mucked up because of Mercury retrograde through mid December. An ongoing residential negotiation is also making some noise in the background and this is equally something you won’t see resolution for until next month. Best bet for November is travel (if you can) as distant shores have much to reveal to you and tap your divine inspiration.

LEO July 23 – August 22

There are signals mid month that a domestic matter will be resolved sooner than later, though retrograde Mercury from the 17th promises to complicate matters and draw out agreements and paper work till next month. What can you do? A conversation you have with your spouse or partner does wonders to smooth over any rough edges on the 9th. Jupiter in Sagittarius from the same date fills you with excitement and passion. Your energy is up and you feel revitalized, ready to take on the world. Pleasure, love and the enhancement of your creative potential can be expected over the coming year. Events on the 27th quickly set the tone, by the end of December you’ll be in a phenomenal new groove. Mars in Pisces from mid month until New Years sees you in a more reflective mood. You may wish to keep a low profile, and intimacy can be humbling for you in this period. North Node leaves Leo on the 6th, and a long period of dynamic transition comes to a close. The 27th is especially productive for working behind the scenes.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

Just as financials get sorted, your residential or personal life goes sideways. A long lost relative or flatmate could show up out of the blue mid month, and you may have to make concessions to accommodate someone or otherwise cope with circumstances that suddenly escalate out of the blue. Jupiter comes to grant blessings to your home base, though it may take a while to see them materialize, (think late December – early January). Look to a conversation or insight on the 27th as an indication of what is to come. From this position, self esteem and a positive feeling of belonging comes into play. Family relationships improve. You’ll have this transit over the coming year and either find comfort in the home you are in, or find something even better that offers you a lot of happiness. From mid month Mars will occupy the relationship zone, turning up the heat, for better or worse! in your close relationships. The Full Moon on the 23rd can see you making changes at work. A huge project comes to closure, or you may be leaving your company or getting a promotion. Bigger opportunities await you next year.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Venus backslides into your sign and a period of personal reappraisal seems to be on order. You may just be in an indulgent mood and making up for lost time as a very expansive career phase begins on the 7th. There is a lot of pleasure and good will to be found on the 9th. You can really make up any relational difficulties with your beloved at this time, even if the whole year has been a complete roller coaster, you begin to have more hope that you can work things out. Everything improves dramatically from mid month and you’ll find yourself back on the road to happiness. This is augmented by benefic Jupiter transiting into Sagittarius on the 9th, highlighting communication and daily life, and encouraging you to think and act optimistically. You will likely find your social circle expands at this time and could begin a publication or media project over the coming year. Meanwhile, (uh oh!) that rascal Mercury goes retrograde on the 17th and slows communications and especially negotiations through the first week of December. Look to the 27th for a turning point, something great happens next month, just hang in there.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

You plunge into the deep this month, the past beacons and you must confront an unresolved issue buried deep in your psyche. As much as you seek to move forward, your body and soul are calling for rest and for you to make peace with yourself. The 9th is regenerative and hosting a modest soiree from the comfort of home could be exactly what the doctor orders. Better yet if this is romantic in nature, as the ambience is very conducive to quiet intimacy and expressing your deepest feelings right now. Set goals for the year on the 7th, as a New Moon from your sign promises to open the doors to your dreams. From mid month, Mars in Pisces reactivates your inner fire and passion. Venus goes direct simultaneously and you start to feel stirrings of promise again. The edge comes off your professional sphere from the 6th, as North Node moves out of Leo. You hit a high note and can ride the success of the last 18 months for a great while. Jupiter moves into Sagittarius on the 9th, departing your sign and now prepares to bestow gifts of prosperity. Entanglements with contracts and agreements are likely as Mercury goes retrograde on the 17th. Everything comes together brilliantly next month, look to the 27th for a significant development or opportunity.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

Mercury enters your sign, only to pull an about face on the 17th. Despite the very positive influences you will experience with Jupiter present here from the 9th, there is a little sorting to get through in December as some personal issues require resolution before you can take full advantage. Very amenable social – romantic links are possible around the 9th, and sparks could fly if you are in contact with a prior associate. Leave any decisions about the love life until after mid month, when Venus retrograde completes its’ course. Unexpected, but exciting developments take place from the time of the Full Moon on the 23rd through the end of the month that implicate your relationships. A domestic matter requires your attention from mid month. Your personal resurgence is in full effect, take note on the 27th in particular, as you have the force behind you to set goals and accomplish all you wish for. Things swiftly come together in early December when Mercury rights it’s course.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

A very slow Venus stations direct on the 16th, although Mercury goes about face and now retrogrades through early December. This could be an important professional month, where you may get a second chance or can wrap up loose ends with a business matter. The 9th is very dynamic and you can generate positive outcomes now. From the 16th, Mars will stimulate your thinking and day to day life, and there will be many short trips, enjoyable events and activities and much in the way of communication through the end of the year. Jupiter comes to occupy a quiet and more strategic portion of your chart, and you will be reflexive, perhaps doing more behind the scenes over the coming year. You get certain indications around the 27th of what this will entail. North Node moves into Cancer from the 6th, and you may start to get inklings about your key relationship, if you are unattached, this transit could bring a very karmic connection into your orbit.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

A beautiful harmony between Mars from your sign connecting to Venus in Libra peaks on the 9th. A love connection can be developed now and will be especially favorable for you if you are traveling or through your studies. Palpable shifts occur this month, and a lot of the pressure comes off. The high stakes atmosphere present in your relationships over the prior years diminishes when the North Node moves into Cancer on the 6th. You start to have more control, as the hands of destiny are less in charge and you get your mojo back. Jupiter leaves your house of profession, fame and honor, moving into more amenable territory when it ingresses into Sagittarius on the 8th. While Jupiter definitely amplified your opportunities and the scale of your reach, it also makes you stretch, and stretching is work! You’ll enjoy an expansive circle of friends during the upcoming year. Retrograde Uranus slides back into Aries for a last hurrah, taking the edge off of changes you have been experiencing at home. Last but not least, Mars will finally leave your sign on the 15th, and the energy, along with it endemic agitation, dissipates. Mars in Pisces provides you with a far more relaxed atmosphere through the end of the year.

PISCES February 19 – March 20

Reassessment continues in relation to your life direction and future. Despite retrograde activity, which mainly serves to slow things down, the ambience is not terribly difficult. Just anticipate certain matters won’t progress very quickly right now. It’s likely after the 16th you might come to a financial agreement that does support your prospective plans, and a discussion or event on the 9th could set something into motion that precipitates this. You are not advised to sign or commit to a specific arrangements until after the current Mercury retrograde cycle which ends after the first week of December. After months of soul searching and a quest for inner peace, you reach the dynamic and influential transit of Mars in your sign, which lasts through the first days of next year. You feel a sense of closure and seek to move forward swiftly. Jupiter in Sagittarius for the next year beginning on the 8th will protect your interests and enable you to expand your range of influence. This is muddled initially by Mercury retrograde (womp-womp) but by January you will see it was worth the wait. Initial considerations into how you would like to most use this advantageous period should be made on the 26th and 27th. You begin to see exactly how far you can go. (Very, very far.)

Weekly Forecast 10/28-11/3

ROLLER COASTER OF LOVE

Frank-Ape-Photo-by-@monkeys

WEEKLY FORECAST:
It’s a week loaded with developments, and likely big changes – all of which have highly fateful connotations. Mercury enters it’s retrograde shadow phase on Monday on a conjunction to Jupiter. Both are trine to Chiron in Pisces and what occurs now establishes a major plot line that culminates in early December, specifically between the 7th and 9th. A conversation or idea triggered in these early days of the week is significant and likely quite emotionally fulfilling. Chiron is ultimately about self acceptance – to be able to say: “yeah I’m wounded, but that doesn’t make me flawed because I accept myself the way I am, even where I hurt”. Jupiter in Scorpio has offered an opportunity to look deep inside and explore fear and power dynamics, specifically where manipulation may have been employed to stay in control of a situation involving someone else, but above all the ability to transcend these by embracing passion and your innate ability to evolve.

As Mercury enters the configuration on Monday, the potential for articulating and understanding this becomes possible. Examine events that occurred in the late February – early March period, since 27’ Pisces is emphasized both now and during the compelling resolution that awaits in December. (This is the degree Pisces was transiting in the February – March timeframe, which is why there could be clues that emerged then.) Over the first two weeks of December this storyline comes back into frame – again the dates from Dec. 7 – 9 should be starred. Mercury will make a long trine to Chiron/Pisces and both will go direct over those dates from 27’ Scorpio/Pisces. This indicates what you put into motion this week has added significance, see how it unfolds for you!

astro_2gw_venus_uranus.56250.26589

Also at play is the second of three Venus – Uranus oppositions early Wednesday. The atmosphere is additionally intensified as this aspect is flanked by the Nodal Axis, generating a geometrical Fixed Cross. Yikes! Thus, Venus and Uranus are both squaring the Nodes at the same time. Very fated events are transpiring, but are they forward or backward moving? On it’s own, Venus – Uranus indicates volatile but potentially exciting circumstances, and whether these experiences are favorable or not, they will be disruptive! It appears the past and future both play an important role, and some manifestation of prior circumstances or people that emerge now, especially out of the blue, are likely being called up in order to resolve unfinished business in order to move on to the next level. This is more likely to manifest when Venus is direct, and specifically in the first few days of December when Venus transits 0’ degree Scorpio again.

Between now and then, Venus moves through Libra for the whole of November, also beginning on Wednesday. A final opposition of Venus and Uranus (between Libra and Aries) on November 30th also precipitates a decision to stay or go in a relationship. The balance between togetherness and independence, what is shared and what is personal can be explored now. Conditions are more favorable to set boundaries and for partners to come to a mutually satisfying agreement. Alternately, circumstances could conspire to bring about a whole new contact or stage in an ongoing relationship, and it’s the stuff that gets put away (or out of it’s misery?) now that creates the space for such a development to arise. Enjoy the Roller Coaster of Love! And wherever it takes you, whatever you go through this week or over the next month – remind yourself that it all turns out in the end, even if the destination is NOTHING like where you thought it would be.

MERCURY IN SAGITTARIUS: EIGHT OF WANDS

So, speaking of destinations… Mercury moves into Sagittarius on Wednesday as well, where it spends the most of it’s time through January 4, 2019. (Minus that little excursion back into Scorpio in the early part of December since we have some more self acceptance to work out.) This signals the beginning of a convoluted, but incredibly fascinating, last few months of the year. Mercury will reconnect with Jupiter two more times – November 27th (on a conjunction to Sun – Jupiter at 4’ Sagittarius!!!) and again December 21st at 9’ Sagittarius. Here, too, there is a propitious beginning that takes a little longer to manifest, and by the end of the year, seeds planted this week really begin to sprout. Think big and live louder! Gerd Ziegler, in the handbook for Aleister Crowley Tarot, gives the indications: “…clear, direct, swift communications; overcoming misunderstanding… The moment has come for you to define where you stand. If you are open and remain centered, misunderstandings will be cleared.” Affirmation: “My openness and self-confidence opens the hearts of those I Iove.” The path may be convoluted, but maybe it just extends the adventure, so enjoy the twists and turns the best you can!

 

Astrology 10/21-27

WEEKLY FORECAST:
Dynamic forces are at work this week, and with Uranus presiding over most of the developments unfolding through the end of the month, unexpected and unusual events are front and center. The Taurus Full Moon rests in perfect conjunction to Uranus, while the Sun will be opposition over the first few days of the week. The Nodal Axis forms a Fixed Cross from 1’ Leo/Aquarius, so there are very fated connotations to what occurs in this phase. Some volatility should be anticipated, but what does happen is more likely to be a culmination of what has been developing since late May, when Uranus first moved into Taurus, transiting the degree it currently resides at now in retrograde, preparing to ingress back into Aries for a few more months. In other words, it’s not exactly “New News” but rather the manifestation of what was new in the late Springtime.

Mercury and Venus from Scorpio provide a more grounding influence, harmonizing to Pluto (Mercury) and Saturn (Venus). An important conversation early in the week has a cut to the chase quality about it, and you can reach an agreement or decision now that has long lasting ramifications. Venus is connecting to Saturn for the second of three sextiles it forms due to retrograde motion. The first occurred September 12th and the last on December 16th. Just as Venus makes three opposition aspects to Uranus, there is also a desire towards stability through these contacts with Saturn, indicating a need to find a balance between commitment and freedom.

On Friday Venus conjuncts the Sun at 3’ Scorpio, signaling the midpoint of the retrograde period which will last a few more weeks through November 16th. From here a sort of truce can be made. Similarly to a New Moon, this is a period of new beginnings in Venus matters. Resolution of all decisions made since January 9th (Sun – Venus conjunct at 18’ Capricorn) occurs, and the reset button gets pushed. An evaluation of how well things have, or alternately have not, worked out since then might be a part of this and provides a turning point towards how you wish for things to work out in the future. While it’s easy to make the blanket description of Venus as the love and money planet, look at the house Venus rules in your chart for more info on what it symbolizes to you personally. House cusps in your chart governed by Taurus and Libra will provide insight.

Sun sextiles Saturn the following day (Saturday) providing some much needed clarity. This is a good day to address important issues and make progress on a long range goal. Despite it being the weekend this is a good time for planning and getting some work done. The Sun moves into Scorpio early Tuesday morning, delving into the depths of the soul and psyche is possible now. Gerd Ziegler attributes the 6 of Cups Tarot Card to this placement and offers the indications: “Enjoy your own emotional wealth and share it with a partner…. rich exchange of sexual and heart energy, emotional renewal…” along with the affirmation: “I am now open to a partner with whom I can share the joys of love on all levels.” Sounds pretty saucy! With Venus retrograde in the sign, it might take a little longer to get everything and everyone on the same page (circle that 3rd Venus – Saturn sextile in December to make a lasting commitment) but there are definitely some productive developments this week that lead to that outcome. Listen to your heart and trust your instincts as always.

Weekly Horoscope 10/14 – 20

QUIETUDE

WEEKLY FORECAST:
It’s a quieter week overall, though communication is highlighted with Mercury making all the punctuation marks and conveying a very important message through Scorpio. Sandwiched between two pretty intense weeks, this one provides a respite, a chance to see or consider where all this might be headed, though this is still not likely to best moment to put fourth a major effort or make a long standing decision, particularly in regard to committed love relationship or important financial negotiation.

Meanwhile, a very positive breakthrough is possible when Mercury lands on retrograde Venus Monday night, offering an opportunity to articulate the feelings associated with this transit. A heart to heart with a close and trusted friend can be very productive, and more so even if you connect with your partner and share what’s on your mind. It’s easier now to express loving feelings, even if they have been more difficult to come by, and from Scorpio this special contact makes it possible to look within at what you really want and how far you are willing to go to get it.

From Sunday into Tuesdays 2nd Quarter Moon, there is a glimpse of what the Taurus Full Moon has in store next week, and progress can be made on initiatives that were begun over the Libra New Moon phase last Monday – Tuesday. Aspects to Saturn, Uranus and Venus from the Moon in Capricorn provide a great deal of harmonious stimulation in the early days of the week. Energy will be focused and attuned to goals with a helpful dose of innovation and creativity aiding the process by offering a fresh perspective on the topics at hand.

Towards the end of the week a different set of priorities emerges, when Mercury attunes brilliantly with inspirational Neptune, shedding some light on something really cherished or even sacred to you. Intuition runs strong, augmented by the Moon in Pisces later in the day. A more obstinate tone is struck midday, when a very abrasive and argumentative angle is formed by Mercury to Mars. At it’s best this can be a good time for getting a lot done, but don’t make haste. This also only applies if you can work without letting your own mood or that of others send you down a road of contention and hostility. Save those snarky bits to a secret folder and keep them off social media (or someone’s inbox) for the time being. If it’s still relevant, say, at the beginning of next week, then feel free to express yourself.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

A professional matter needs to be addressed this week. Steps you take may culminate in a powerful financial opportunity that emerges next week. Success will come if you think outside of the parameters you are currently operating in and try something defiantly different from your norm. From Friday, unwind and relax. It will be all systems go beginning next week and you will want to be at your tippy top.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Wherever you may be at in a partnership, (coming or going? still uncertain?) Monday will provide an insight that will be quite helpful. This story still mutates over the next month, until at least 16 November, when Venus resumes direct motion. If you feel out of sorts during this period, use this to reflect on where you seek self improvement and make a plan you can put into motion between now and New Years Eve.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

Where productivity may have proved challenging in recent times, you gain a valuable insight in the early days of the week, perhaps even a lead on a new job. The end of the week is also favored, though you have to watch your words. Intimate matters continue to feature largely, and you reach a turning point here as well. While it may take a bit longer to settle this issue, a decisive step can be made on Tuesday.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

There are some positive indication this week affecting your most committed and loving relationship. If you’ve had difficulty expressing your desires, the words or a meaningful gesture may come more easily to you now. Friday can be ideal for sharing love or inspiration. Some of this has to do with self awareness, and if a part of your persona has been dormant, it may be revealed during the quarter Moon phase opposite your sign on Tuesday.

LEO July 23 – August 22

You make some progress this week on the home front, and although this situation won’t be resolved for another month, it’s possible that you reach a decision, if only to put it into motion down the line. A family legacy may be crucial to this and an important conversation that occurs at the end of the week can be fruitful. A partner could be less enthusiastic about matters and express themselves quite vocally.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

A love relationship could be reaching a turning point this week, and a conversation on Monday could easily set the stage for a major decision or move forward. Friday is lovely for connecting to the one you love, make a plan to get together. Contention at work could prove vexing on the other hand. Someone is likely being temperamental and it’s up to you to choose whether or not you want to indulge an outburst or walk away.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Financial matters continue to preoccupy, and you can make positive decisions Monday that will bring you rewards in the near future. While this is likely a lucrative month for you, spending all your time with your mind on your money and your money on your mind could also point to a desire to be distracted from relational issues that have been tricky over recent weeks. Remind someone close to your heart that although you may be busy, you value them too.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

It’s a busy period for you, and although a part of you still craves some time behind the scenes, important negotiations are transpiring this week that will move you closer to your objectives. Putting in an effort now yields fantastic personal and/or financial rewards by the end of the year. A super romantic vibe permeates on Friday, and even if a relationship is a bit sideways with Venus in retrograde, you may enjoy a sweet moment with someone close to your heart.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

While the astroscape is deep in the Scorpio season, you may find yourself withdrawn, musing over the past and clearing the way to a bright future forthcoming. The quarter Moon presides over a significant financial decision. Follow a hunch here and reap a reward. Your instincts are pivotal in coming to a decision about a residential matter towards the end of the week. This is a good moment to make your house your home.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

You can present your message clearly this week, and a special project could get the attention required to give you the green light. Watch financial negotiations towards the end of the week as a conversation can become prickly. A quarter Moon in your sign on Tuesday places an emphasis on who you are and what you are becoming. The hard work you are putting in now will pay off within the next year or so, keep climbing!

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

The emphasis on your profession remains through the end of the month, and steps you take this week assure a bright outcome by the end of the year. Intuition is strong in the first part of the week and most likely you will be most productive working behind the scenes. Friday features inspiration, but there may also be a confrontational episode with a boss or authority figure. Watch your words if you seek to protect your position and/or reputation.

PISCES February 19 – March 20

Issues and individuals at a distance are appealing for you this month, and even if a relationship or opportunity abroad has come under question, important conversations this week will help you to right the course by the end of the year. The quarter Moon on Tuesday rekindles enthusiasm about this and makes you optimistic for what is in store. La Luna moves into your sign over next weekend, and will help you to reconnect with what matters most to you.

BREAKTHROUGH

WEEKLY FORECAST:
Tensions may erupt this week, as rather divisive aspects occur, though there is simultaneously the potential under this astrology for a genuine breakthrough. The New Moon in Libra forms a tough alinement with Pluto, so building a bridge or hoping to establish connectivity in a relationship can prove challenging now. With Venus in retrograde, obstacles may be present. A contentious situation can develop, though real love is not likely to disappear overnight, there are simply some growing pains a connection might be going through in this span of time or over the coming weeks.

Friday also features intense overtones, as Sun squares Pluto, requiring a major adjustment to an objective established earlier in the year (January 9th saw the conjunction of these planets at 19’ Capricorn). Harnessing the transformative power of this aspect meanwhile can produce a development of lasting impact. A tough choice might have to be made, as something could require release at this time in order to make progress. Cut your losses and move forward. A grounding aspect between Mercury and Saturn the same day will offer a level headed and practical approach to whatever emerges and keeps the volatility to a minimum, hopefully.

Mercury enters Scorpio on Tuesday, enhancing deeply psychological and strategic thinking, but also secrecy. As Mercury squares the nodes in the later days of the week, adjustments need to be made to accommodate the future directives. This recognition of changes occurring can bring up a sense of nostalgia or loss. Things will not be as they were, and this can produce a sense of closure or release. Meanwhile, though the future might not be completely clear, there could be a conversation or decision that is made that moves a situation forward. Instinct will be strong, so trust your conviction to make a commitment towards a change.

Thursday offers a respite of sorts as the Scorpio Moon makes harmonious and productive aspects to Neptune and Pluto. A final conjunction of Moon to Jupiter can reinvigorate the potentials for growth in the realms of the soul and psyche, enabling renewed commitment to see progress over the coming month where it may have been delayed otherwise. From November 8th, Jupiter shifts gears, entering Sagittarius for the following year, so it’s make it or break it time where Scorpio is featured in your chart! Mars simultaneously moves out of post retrograde shadow from 10’ Aquarius, indicating there is greater conviction to take action on a matter that has stagnated since mid May. Breathe forward, think forward and move forward this week.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

Partnerships reach a pivotal tuning point during the New Moon on Monday. With Venus retrograde you may feel ambivalent about starting a new relationship or deepening an ongoing commitment. Your sense of conviction is likely to feel renewed towards the end of the week. A professional matter that has been culminating since the beginning of the year requires a rethink or even a full on revolution. An opportunity could change your life in a heartbeat, take a stand for what you want and whether or not you get it, at least you will feel right with yourself.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

The plot thickens within your primary relationships, and a conversation about the future towards the end of the week will be very productive. This could apply to cohabitation or your longer range goals and the right person will support your choices. Mid week is more contentious and there could be a professional matter at stake, you and someone close might not be able to find a common ground. Try to take the long view of where you want to be by the end of the year to diffuse a difficult situation.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

Work, health, productivity and how they all link up for you will be of paramount importance for the remainder of the month, with opportunities to find success if you keep ear to the ground for them. It may take until December, but you will get there! Don’t allow a hardworking phase tune you out to the love light illuminating your path and a chance to (re)connect to what you enjoy most during the New Moon on Monday. A connection with someone at a distance could have a compelling pull and you’ll see renewed potential by the end of the week.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

Changes are occurring on the home front, as substantive shifts that have been in the works since much earlier in the year begin to fall into place. While there is no shortage of potentially dramatic moments in this astroscape, your inner conviction radiates and keeps you at ease with yourself, preventing you from getting blindsided. The rest of the month highlights love and creativity, and while some situations have gone sideways, a very significant conversation or decision you make carries you to a very positive conclusion in December.

LEO July 23 – August 22

Your personal life continues to go through dynamic reorientation and a heavy emphasis on your family or residence through the end of the month can bring about very productive changes now. These will lead to a wonderfully creative month in November, so take care of business! The New Moon highlights your social connections and this could be a positive time to start a night class or get that book club together. There could be fallout with a loved one midweek, though if you keep to your standards of conduct and all will be well.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

You enter a busy season highlighting communication. This is a positive time for social events and connecting with your friends. Someone could unexpectedly drop in mid week, or a conversation or decision could put you on an unexpected trajectory. The consequences of past actions or choices reveal outcomes this week, requiring you to make amends or reconcile with yourself privately. A heartfelt conversation with a loved one gets you back on track by the end of the week.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

A New Moon in your sign Monday enables you to push the reset button on many aspects of your life, and renew commitment to your personal objectives as well as within relationships, which are gaining some momentum now. Mid week can be a bit tricky, unexpected financial developments can require you to make quick decisions, though this month is productive to attend to these and grow your prospects. By December you see a worthwhile pay off for your efforts. A message that reaches you Friday is significant to this and gets you on track.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

Your perspective shifts as consciousness shifts you out of the shadows of your subconscious and into view. Within two more weeks you’ll fully emerge as the Sun moves into your sign. Meanwhile this month is highly favorable (Venus retro in your sign not withstanding) for aligning with desire and intentions of a personal nature. Partnership continues to be a trickier matter for the time being, with a surprise in store mid week. An adjustment you make towards over the following days could bring very positive professional results.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

This is likely to be a period of deep reflection for you, Sag, while you clear the decks for very exciting personal developments that unfold beginning next month taking you straight through the new year. For now, attend to unfinished business, and enjoy solitude, relaxation or meditation. A realization mid week has unexpected implications, clairvoyance and intuition is highlighted. Dream symbols could also offer guidance. Overcome a financial obstacle towards the end of the week. The Moon in your sign empowers you from Friday into Saturday.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

A turning point in your professional life and the financial implications this holds are paramount this week. The New Moon signals a new chapter and you make the most of the opportunities available by not pushing your agenda too forcefully. Recalibrating the connection between what you have and what you share with someone (or expect them to give you,) is highlighted at the end of the week. You may have an obligation to fulfill here. Socially this is a harmonious month to (re)connect with friends who share your ideals and interests.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

You are gaining ground professionally and very important discussions and negotiations can occur this month. Advancement will come by December if you put in the footwork now. Personally you are gaining momentum, though you may see growing pains within a relationship that just isn’t ready to take off at this time. Arguments can occur midweek if you push your point too forcefully. Giving people space to do their own thing generates better feelings of good will. Clarity regarding your future direction, perhaps a trip or realizing an educational goal provides you with satisfaction over the New Moon phase.

PISCES February 19 – March 20

The New Moon highlights your most intimate relationships and may cause you to review your finances, especially those connected to a spouse or business partner. It is possible you come across a new source of income through these contacts, or perhaps you receive a loan or grant (or begin to pursue one). While there is still a lot of internal focus over the coming weeks, a myriad of planetary action occurring in Scorpio expands your view point, making this a positive time in which to explore different perspectives or cultures through education or travel. It also puts you at ease with yourself, which never hurts either!

Stargazer October Horoscope

METAMORPHOSIS

OCTOBER FORECAST:
While there are no big ticket outer planet transits this month, the kind that genuinely shape the overall trajectory for months if not years, there are palpable shifts in perspective as a strong sense of evolution and closure predominates. Mercury (Oct. 11), Sun (Oct. 25) and Venus (Oct. 31) all square the Nodal axis from Scorpio, culminating the adjustments being made between the past and future objectives as the Nodes prepare to shift from the Leo/Aquarius polarity to Cancer/Capricorn in early November. Uranus also squares the Nodes from 0’ Taurus towards the end of the month, further highlighting this transition, and stimulating sudden and unexpected opportunities to manifest an intention that has been paramount since May 2017.

This precipitates the first order of closure occurring this month, as the directives of the Leo North Node are finalized. Pay special attention to what occurs over the last 5 days of the month and through the first week of November while the North Node transits at 0’ Leo. Better yet, use the energy available in this period to make a substantial move towards a goal. A final Leo Lunar eclipse next January resonates completion for something begun in this vital period, so an objective put into motion now will likely materialize in about 4 months time, (January 20th, 2019). Remember that as the North Node objectives are met, the past karmic baggage represented by the South Node is released and resolved on its own.

Jupiter concludes its time in Scorpio between now and November 8th, signaling the completion of another cycle. From Scorpio, Jupiter is not operating at its most effective wavelength, though the last year has been productive for emotional and spiritual growth and revelation. Growth has occurred through esoteric awareness, less so in the material realm and in some cases through relinquishing desire to tangible attachments, including money itself. Contacts to Pluto and Neptune enhanced the transit enormously, and since last December you may have noticed you have come to terms with the deeper aspects of the psyche and developed a more profound connection within an intimate relationship, having come into a resonant personal awareness of how and why this contact affects you and ending those which did not provide the emotional bond that led to a trusting and loving connection. This trust can also apply to yourself, and if you have been working more on your spiritual awareness and honing your intuition, this has likely been a fruitful transit.

Mercury is the most active planet this month, indicating a lot of communication occurs, though much of it behind the scenes while Mercury transits Scorpio from the 9th. Use this period advantageously for making progress in both personal and professional matters. In mid November, Mercury will enter its next retrograde phase, and matters will progress more slowly. A conjunction to Jupiter on the 29th in late Scorpio is ideal for a heart to heart, conducting a business negotiation or preparing for a trip. At this time it is possible to articulate goals clearly and make determinations about where progress will be sought over the coming cycle. Passion and intensity preside over the final days of the month with several planets (Sun, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter) all transiting in Scorpio.

Venus retrograde (through November 16th) signals delays simultaneously, more likely of a romantic or sentimental variety. This can take the shape of people from the past remerging, or reaching out to a long lost loved one, though such contacts frequently resonate unfinished karmic business that needs to be reconciled before you can move on. In some cases there is a second chance to rekindle a connection, though its advisable to wait until after the retrograde phase to make a decision about these, as there will likely be reversals from mid November forward. The possible exception would be on the 24th, when Venus makes a second sextile to Saturn. This is a positive time in which to tenuously plan out long range associations, without necessarily signing the dotted line. In mid December the aspect occurs again and a commitment can be made more wholeheartedly.

OCTOBER HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

Relationships could remain tricky business this month as Venus retrogrades and continues to clash with Mars and then Uranus. Seems people can’t quite see eye to eye. Adopt a live and let live approach and see where it takes you. Shared finances are also impacted, and if you were expecting or relying upon money from an outside source, you might be waiting a bit longer. A New Moon on the 9th indicates a change in the status quo, someone new could show up on the scene. Give it till the middle of next month to see the dust settle around this one. Someone (yourself included) may be having second thoughts. The social realm will be vibrant and a group project could really take off now. Friendship enlivens you.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Venus retrogrades on the 6th, a very personal transit for you since it is your ruler. Certain aspects of your self and identity have become quite entwined with your partner and balance between you needs to be restored. As Mercury joins in from the 11th, the plot definitely thickens and negotiation intensifies. A Full Moon in your sign on the 24th combines with Saturn and offers assurance. You feel confident asserting your needs. Venus connects to the Sun (and also Saturn) and it is through your partner you experience a lost or forgotten part of yourself and your true desires. Matters become clearer on the 26th. You may not be ready to move forward (give it about 3 more weeks) but you’ll have determined how you would like to see things work out in the end. Volatile and unpredictable influences preside at the end of the month… just when you had things sorted… kaboom!

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

Love relationships can be touch and go in this phase, as friction in the early part of the month can have one or both partners reconsidering the union. Venus retrograde from the 6th heightens the tension, and it’s not unusual for people to withdraw now to figure out their emotional boundaries and commitments. This could apply to a work situation, either an office romance might be put on ice, or a job promotion you were on queue for just slips through your fingers. What falls off the scene may be back in no time, though if it doesn’t – chalk it up to it just wasn’t meant to be. Your time is best spent in study or travel right now, distant cultures and horizons hold adventures you may have missed out on earlier in the year. There is the potential you are cultivating a passionate alliance with someone abroad that could come to fruition when Venus is direct again. A lucrative work assignment could arrive on the 29th. Be ready to jump.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

Venus retrograde from the 6th could signal a change of heart or the trajectory of a love relationship. Events around the 10th indicate a spike in the road that sets people apart for the time being. Soul searching is a positive way in which to spend this transit, though you’ll want to fight for love on the 29th, just choose your words carefully. A great deal of enthusiasm is present here, though it could take until towards the end of December to see this all work out. (This applies equally to a creative undertaking, BTW.) An emphasis on home and personal life, especially around the New Moon on the 9th, suggests changes to your residence, maybe flatmates are coming or going or you decide to move. Strong forces affect your domestic realm, perhaps a domineering person (your partner?) or circumstance suggest you have something to overcome. The New Moon resurrects a long standing awareness of these issues, which have been pervasive for years. New insights could be present here to navigate a tricky situation.

LEO July 23 – August 22

Things continue to heat up in your principal relationships, and you can pick up where you left off in June. Domestic matters remain paramount, though as Venus retrogrades on the 6th, you are reminded that these things are going to take time and will do better to set aside relocation, renovation than to frustrate yourself with delays. Good news comes in on the 29th that you can put into action at the end of December. This relates to your home as well, it’s just going to take a minute for all the details to unfold and get sorted. Hang tight! The Full Moon on the 24th signals a completion and culmination in your professional life. There can be a bit of discomfort, especially if you are leaving a long term position to go off on your own, start a new career or your own business. There is excitement, too, but being a bit of a creature of habit, you have an adjustment to make forthcoming. A home business with a partner is an indication here, and a great deal of sweat and tears and hard work has gone into what you built and pays off now.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

New financial opportunities could turn up, but there are barriers or something that has to be overcome to make the most of this one. Venus retrograde also portends a slow down in regard to resources, so anticipate it will take until at least the end of next month for all the pieces to fall into place. Things begin to pick up steam at work, though people will not be on their best behavior on the 10th, easy does it. Your privacy could feel invaded, someone is prying or people are trying to socialize, making you uncomfortable or otherwise annoyed. The 11th, 25th and 31st are all a bit challenging. You may come to a decision about pursuing a new course of study or achieving an educational goal on the 24th. There are long range consequences to what happens now.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

A New Moon in your sign on the 9th opens the door to a whole new chapter. Release the burdens of the past and especially any bitterness associated with disappointment. Venus in retrograde muddies the waters a bit. There could be some financial fallout and this could connect to a business partnership, your income or a settlement dispute in the case of a divorce or separation. It is worthwhile to take matters of the heart with a grain of salt in this period, especially in the case of a long term relationship. If matters get contentious (esp. around the 10th) or someone has a change of heart this could just be a temporary state of affairs. Mercury and Jupiter are collaborating to protect your financial interests, as you will see and which will ultimately be reconciled by the end of December. A conversation or idea that comes up on the 29th shows promise and should be followed up with. The Sun in your sign sees you rising above it all, showing grace and diplomacy under pressure regardless of what occurs. The 12th hosts some very intense and challenging dynamics. Change or be changed.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

Venus slides backwards in your sign from the 6th, a period of misdirection or indecision follows and you may have to wait until December to see the fulfillment of your dreams and desires. The 10th can be especially vexing, and there can be a very contentious issue with a flatmate, this will be doubled if you are romantically involved, or living with your lover or your spouse. Mercury in your sign is very decisive enough in the meanwhile and you can make progress in the business world if not in your personal life right now. The 22nd and 29th are very positive for negotiations and pushing your personal agenda. You may not get results immediately (Mercury will retrograde next month) but, again, by December, there will be a very positive outcome to a conversation or agenda you set into motion around these dates. By the end of the month, push might come to shove in a relationship that seems to be coming off the rails. Events on the 31st could be the trigger that completely sends a situation sideways, although trying something completely unexpected could be exactly what circumstances require if you are really in a rut.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

As Venus retrogrades in Scorpio from the 6th, coupling with Mercury entering the sign a few days later, there is a distinct turn of the focus inward for the remainder of the month. This is a time to settle old scores, examine the past and release the dusty old skeletons hanging out in your closet. Jupiter is on it’s way to your sign, and it’s time to make room for some gorgeous new apparel. The 15th is a good time to touch down with a confidante or even start a course of psychotherapy if you are really ready to go deep. You have access to your most hidden attributes and can easily articulate your feelings and the things you would otherwise normally conceal, even that which you are most afraid of. The presence of Jupiter indicates this will not be a difficult period, and you make the most of it by taking some time out and nurturing your private life. Mars has another idea, and will keep you busy socially. This will require balance, but can be done, though there may be a tricky ambience on the 10th. Somebody intrudes on your personal space and it is not pretty! Protect yourself and your heart!

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

Things begin to get tricky this month as Venus retrogrades from the 6th through the middle of next month. Sun, Mercury and Mars all conspire to give you high visibility. Mars back in phase can see you in a hard working period, and the 22nd, 24th and 26th are great for making a great impression upon those who are in a position to help you. You could be back tracking over an agreement or reconfiguring a business objective this and next month. A New Moon on the 9th sets a positive tone, and will enable you to make some clear decisions. There could be some conflicts around the 10th, communication and sexual tension are stirring up trouble. The 31st can also provide some unexpected events or outcomes in the name of love and/or passion. Events towards the end of the month signal an upturn in revenue, or potentially hatching up a good business idea. Things come together more fruitfully in December. Show your love you care on the Full Moon of the 24th.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

A professional matter back tracks from the 6th through the middle of next month and into December. An abrasive or confrontational circumstance around the 10th may force you to reconsider a strategic partnership. Dialogue and negotiation proceeds for the rest of the month and you can generate ideas and solutions on the 12th, 15th, 22nd and the 29th. Hold meetings and have conversations. You realize the extent of your personal sacrifice to keep a relationship afloat on the 11th, 25th and 31st, and there can be some discomfort connected to what you experience at these times. With Venus in retrograde on top of it all, there can be some contention in a relationship. Unexpected developments at the end of the month and the Full Moon on the 24th foretell domestic changes are in store. A decision you make about your residence has staying power and will affect you for a long time.

PISCES February 19 – March 20

While you continue to make peace with your past, your future direction comes into question. Venus retrogrades on the 6th (through November 10th) stimulating a reappraisal of where you want to go next or otherwise slowing down the initiatives you had in place for yourself regarding higher education, travel or publishing. The good news is, this review will give you a huge advantage in a few months time. When Venus reaches the apex of your chart in January, influencing your public reputation, career and recognition, it will join Jupiter (January 21, 2019) generating a once in twelve years incredible opportunity for advancement and success in your enterprises. For the next few months, let this be a work in progress and examine all your your options. Events are actually conspiring in your favor, even if it doesn’t feel that way right now. A development around the 26th will start to put things back into order, but don’t expect actual resolution quite yet. Ideas and productivity generated on the 12th, 15th, 22nd, 24th and especially the 29th and offer some favorable avenues worthy of exploration.

Stargazer Weekly 9/30 – 10/6

WEEKLY FORECAST:
This week sees the direct motion of Pluto in Capricorn, but meanwhile the retrograde motion of Venus from the 5th – November 16th. So while in some regards there is progress, there is also an inversion within the romantic/sensual and financial realms, and a reconsideration of where affections lie for some is in store. While Venus retrogrades, she frees herself from social norms and the constraints of being seen as the good woman, the ideal spouse or partner. All retrograde planets have a renegade streak to them. With the Venus – Uranus oppositions bookending this transit, a tenuous balance between freedom and commitment is still being maneuvered through. Finding a way to be connected to someone while maintaining a degree of independence and autonomy is a major theme throughout this transit.

As always, it’s my recommendation to examine the house ruled by any retrograde planet as a key to understanding the work in progress area of your chart being affected. The placement of the current retrograde cycle is the key to finding the solution for the issue at stake. For instance, if Venus rules your second house, but retrograding in the first, the attainment of a key financial goal is likely to occur through a reassessment of your personal representation and style. The key to getting that promotion is distinguishing yourself among your peers and finding a more tactful, diplomatic way in which to express yourself.

Pluto, meanwhile, deepens the intentions and generates a climate of purposeful expression of passion while it transits through Capricorn. Since the end of April the planet (It’s a planet again, did you hear?!) has appeared dormant, though really not – the work it was doing had been internalized. It was a period of inner transformation and figuring out what was worth turning the attention towards, what was worth changing for. Pluto is the underworld, the dark topics of sex, intimacy, linked incomes and soul level connections fall under its dominion. Pluto is also trauma – not only the events themselves, but the internal strength to overcome the upheaval that is produced by it. It is the strength of the Phoenix to arise after having completely burnt its former form to ash. In this area of your life, you will experience a rebirth now if you have done the inner work and determined what is worth changing for.

Venus will have her Phoenix moment a little later. Retreating from the scalding intensity of Scorpio, she has unfinished business to take care of in order to rebalance the scales in the relational realm. This applies both to committed partnerships, or those relating to business or the profession. From early December, Venus reenters and transits direct through Scorpio. Coupled with the transit of Mars through Pisces, a very sensitized emotional ambience will make it possible for deeply passionate and loving connections to flourish. For now, take a step back and see where your heart and the fates guide you. If you have not made your case clear within a partnership, or established your personal boundaries effectively, this is the appropriate time to review, with an eye six weeks down the road to make the changes required.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

Professional matters begin to shift forward again, although relational ones begin to undergo a process of transition and reappraisal. While your personal momentum grows, you may find a loved one pulls back or is less available to you for the next six weeks. The best thing to do is let this person work on what they need to and avoid putting additional pressure on them unnecessarily. It’s possible your own feelings about a partnership are changing, and very new relationships especially may require a rethink.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

You are getting a clearer sense of where you want to head in the not so distant future, and a key partnership seems to play a big role in the direction you seek to take. A circumstance at work or promotion you may have been expecting could prove more vexing as the next six weeks produce obstacles to the progress you had hoped you would make. It’s possible a female mentor from your past reemerges, and if so she has very sage wisdom to share with you. Make the most of a second chance.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

Passion in an intimate relationship is stimulated and you may find yourself getting closer to someone than you had ever imagined possible. Commitment will be a big feature of this partnership and merging assets could be one way in which you demonstrate your conviction to do so with this person. It’s imperative you tap into a sense of joy and pleasure where these have been lacking. Venus retro offers a second chance to rediscover latent creativity that will lead to a better work prospect in November.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

You’ll see signs of life in your key committed partnerships from this week, though domestic issues may resurface at the same time. Particularly if you live with someone, there may be disagreement regarding your space and how you organize the household. Tuesday Quarter Moon in your sign intensifies your feelings and triggers tensions between yourself and family members with whom you do not see eye to eye. Try to maintain perspective and hear the other person out. This is merely a passage.

LEO July 23 – August 22

A more prestigious role or title is available now, or over the coming weeks, and to the extent you have been demonstrating your capacity and dedication on the job you will see advancement. Your living situation may require reappraisal in the meantime, and if you have been considering a move, renovation or redecoration project, these will likely be postponed until later in the year. Partnerships continue to gain momentum as the delays of the prior months dissipate. There could be strange behavior that is either a real turn on or unsettles the atmosphere, depending on your perspective.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

You are required to come to terms with an unsettled financial matter over the coming weeks, though prior efforts may also begin to bear fruit where you have been diligent by mid November. At the same time, a love relationship that may have seen delays is stimulated and you will sense you are getting closer to what you desire between now and next April. Delving into passion is possible now, and this could equally apply to a creative pursuit you have been considering. Time to give it your all. Watch words Tuesday as tension abounds. This is a transition that must be confronted, how you respond is up to you.

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

A missed opportunity comes back your way, this is very personal but equally describes your love life. While you may not be certain precisely where your affections lie, in taking care of yourself first you will find the appropriate match reveals itself over the coming weeks. Finances require appraisal as well, but here you are seeing forward momentum after some months of recalibration. By the end of the month and especially by December there will be more to go around. A merger you make has the potential to present you with a windfall by the end of the year. One step at a time.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

There are dual influences at work and you could be feeling pulled in numerous directions simultaneously. Venus retrograde in your sign may cause you to retreat into yourself as this transit indicates a withdrawal. Much is already going on behind the scenes suggesting you are delving deep into your subconscious and that intuition is incredible strong over the coming weeks. A sensitized ambience on Tuesday could illuminate a secret desire. Domestic matters continue to see resolve and tapping a primordial source of energy could bring a long sought resolution.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

While this is a very active period for you socially, it’s also a good time to reevaluate your financials and make some determinations in regard to your earnings as Pluto direct indicates a more productive atmosphere for progress now. Pluto, of course, destroys in order to create, so it’s just as likely you see certain sources of income fizzle out in order to be replaced by new ones between now and next April. Such an appraisal can take place on Tuesday where something comes to a definitive end and you need to make adjustments. Most likely these were overdue any way, so accept it and move forward.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

Passion is reinvigorated as the personal revolution you have been experiencing is reactivated enabling you to advance the goals and agenda you’ve been strategizing since last April. Release and rebirth are themes in this period and in fully embracing them you find a source of hidden reserves of power within yourself. This is highly advantageous, as Venus retrograde (between now and the end of November) offer you a second chance to progress professional objectives, now with the full force of Pluto behind you. Tuesday could be a bit contentious if you come on too strong. Watch your words.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

You continue to come into your own and a sense of relief precipitates around the developments of the coming weeks. Your destination is likely unknown, but there is nonetheless a feeling of internal satisfaction that provides you with assurance all will work out in time. From mid week you revisit relational themes, many of which were stimulated over the Summer. Someone at a distance may feature and if a relationship had been abandoned you may find you have a second chance between now and the end of November to reconcile.

PISCES February 19 – March 20

Your most private life and intimate relationships are highlighted, and will continue to be over the coming weeks and months. Some variety of negotiation or reappraisal may be required here, and if you were working towards a loan, settlement or the division of assets and financial responsibility you share with a spouse or business partner, the next several weeks will be critical for this conversation. In many regards this is a period of closure for you. Mars behind the scenes calls for seclusion and secrecy while you extinguish the story lines of the last two years and prepare for the new world order that emerges for you in November.

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 intiate 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.
