Stargazer May Horoscopes

MAY FORECAST:

Twist and turns abound throughout the month, with Venus, Jupiter and Saturn all going retrograde, offering a second chance to make adjustments where required. Look to where plans have not worked out (especially those associated with ambition) and make the necessary changes to the plan. Reorganization is crucial over the next few months. 

Venus retro can rekindle an old romance, though it’s just as likely to be show over when the cycle completes itself. On the other side, it’s also possible a relationship goes through a period of reconsideration. Venus retrogrades on a square to Neptune, so there could be a realization that a situation was not all it seemed (Neptune – illusion) that triggers this. For more on Venus retrograde check out the 2020 Forecast that was published at the beginning of the year.

Mars in Pisces: Ten Of Cups – Satisfaction, Fulfillment, Radiating

“Suggestion: Relax, close your eyes and breath deeply and calmly. Let a picture arise in you which shows you a state of complete fulfillment. Repeat this exercise often and connect this feeling more and more with your reality.

Affirmation: Life gives me all I need to be happy.”

-Gerd Ziegler Tarot: Mirror of the Soul; Handbook for the Aliester Crowley Tarot

Mars shifts into Pisces mid month, not a particularly comfortable or productive placement for the planet of action, though take it as a respite – when Mars moves into Aries at the end of June, it stays in the sign through the beginning of next year. The Pisces period seeks to delve into the spiritual realm and promotes compassion and resolution. With the world on lockdown, this is a peaceful time in which the inner dementions can be explored fruitfully. 

The North Node moves into Gemini on the 5th. Expect a realignment of goals and drives during the upcoming period. The focus is on the intellectual and social dimensions. Mercury will be in Gemini from the 12th – 29th and conjuncts the North Node on the 28th. Clarity about the future directives are in tight focus at this point, describing precisely how this reorientation will affect you and setting you off towards a fresh set of priorities.

MAY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES 

March 20 – April 19

Mars nestles into the most secretive and elusive sector of your chart, indicating a period of withdrawal, closure and metamorphosis. Profession obligations recede, which is timely. You are likely to reconsider your goals and life direction over the coming months. Social contacts and communication become emphasized as you reach out to and grow your network.

TAURUS 

April 20 – May 20

Social life can be interesting this month, though you may find your educational goals are furloughed for a time while events at large evolve. Finances become emphasized with North Node in Gemini. You can cultivate new sources of revenue. Look to clues on the 28th. Money matters may be on slow roll while Venus retrogrades, but matters will improve over time. Practice patience.

GEMINI 

May 21 – June 20

There’s a crucial shift in awareness for you this month that impacts the me – you balance in your most important partnerships. You may rekindle the spark of an old flame, or realize a relationship has come to it’s end. This will be a theme that plays out for months, so don’t make decisions based on the current climate. Many changes are in store – this is only the beginning. 

CANCER 

June 21 – July 22

An old flame may rekindle though it’s up to you to decide if this it the right time or not. This consideration lasts for a few months, so take your time. Travel may be alluring, you have a desire to spread your wings. Mercury enters your sign at the end of the month and signals a busy phase for you. With the North Node on it’s way out you are likely to feel more in control of your life.

LEO 

July 23 – August 22

A key relationship could deepen from mid month, as you get up close and personal with someone you have become associated with. You are likely to see your social circle expanding, and the next year and half emphasizes what you can do together vs what you get done on your own. Professional matters come into focus on the 4th. You can advance swiftly now. 

VIRGO 

August 23 – September 22

A new professional trajectory is in store, as a New Moon on the 22nd signals developments are on the way. This may take a few months to nail down, but you are on track. Mars activates your area of partnerships from mid month. This can represent passion or conflict. With Jupiter retrograding in your love sector, a relationship could mutually slow down.          

LIBRA 

September 23 – October 23

There could be a bit of a sea change regarding a project you may had hoped to see move forward. There could be a better opportunity waiting for you in the wings, so take advantage of more time to explore your options. Financial matters culminate over the Full Moon on the 7th and could provide clues to where to head next. Housing matters can also be resolved over the coming months.

SCORPIO 

October 24 – November 21

Passions intensify with Mars transiting your are of pleasure and love relationships. A pivotal Full Moon in your sign on the 7th encourages a union of heart and soul. Intimacy could be tricky over the coming phase, especially if you are carrying the torch for a lost love and not grounded in your current situation. Let your intuition lead the way of someone from your past comes out of the woodwork.

SAGITTARIUS  

November 22 – December 21

Partnerships and romance are likely a high priority, but securing a significant other a bit tricky over the coming months. An aura of uncertainty surrounding the situation could have you questioning the intentions of someone you care for, if not your own. The Scorpio Full Moon on the 7th suggests retreat and withdrawal. Reflection and closure are highlighted. 

CAPRICORN 

December 22 – January 19 

This is likely to be a period of reflection and reorganization for Cappy. Jupiter in your sign and ruling planet Saturn on a backward roll indicate revisions to your strategy and trajectory. Meanwhile, the South Node leaves your sign and energy is restored after a period of limitations and draining events. Communication is highlighted from mid month and you are likely to be busy socially and with writing and learning projects.     

AQUARIUS 

January 20 – February 18

With Mars leaving your sign mid month, you feel a little less pressured to perform. Personal life and financial matters become emphasized and you may be developing a work from home enterprise. As Saturn shifts retrograde, you consider what you’ve discovered about yourself over the past few months and for objectives that will take flight a little later in the year. A Full Moon in your house of fame and reputation on the 7th amplifies this.

PISCES 

February 19 – March 20

Your private and residential life is emphasized though Venus retrograde here could slow things up if you are trying for relocation. This is a positive time to connect with your homeland or visit a location from your childhood, or connect with old friends. Mars moves into your sign and you feel motivated to take action on a personal project or enterprise. There could be enticing moments in store. 

April Forecast

APRIL FORECAST:

Hope everyone out there is staying safe and healthy! I’m in New York and we’re hunkered down, only going out for the essentials, and home schooling my son. The teachers at his school put together an online program and the kids all do a Zoom session at noon to stay in touch. Certainly many people are in similar situations, and while it’s tempting to drift off into existential malaise right now (I do so daily) the imperative for getting through this is to feel gratitude for every breath you take and every moment you have left, especially in the company of those you love most. I’ve been staying in touch with friends, both near and far, through Facebook/Twitter convos, and it’s nice to be able to check in with people and see how it’s going. 

It’s also very scary, and I honestly feel weird about trying to decode horoscopes for the month amidst so much uncertainty and while it feels so many restrictions are being imposed on what we can actually do. What is the future? Right now, who knows. A wise woman I know said: what is the rush to get back to normal, normal got us here. It’s definitely a pivotal and defining moment in which necessary changes can transpire, if we make our choices with clarity and humanity and not in panic mode. But onward, let’s look at some of this astrology.

The atmosphere changes substantially with the ingress of Venus to Gemini and Mars to Aquarius, both air signs, which signals a shift from the material towards developing intellect and social connection. This could be difficult while socially distancing, but there are other ways to stay in touch, by phone and with the web. Or like those amazing folks in Italy who came together in song from their balconies while quarantined. Saturn in Aquarius reinforces this and will take a structuring (or restructuring) approach to how relationships and communities proceed. Mercury will move into Aries on the 11th and this will also enhance a more open dialogue and promote a sense of progress. 

Venus will move into Gemini on the 3rd for a very long stay, through August 7th, due to the upcoming retrograde cycle. The shadow phase begins on the 10th, so it’s possible to begin intuiting what the message of the cycle has in store. Typically, Venus retro is going to affect relationships, but I would also advise looking at the house Venus rules in your chart, and obviously the house Gemini falls in there as well. It’s possible a change in partnership status is going to have a significant outcome in those areas. Also be very aware of what occurs on the 22nd – 23rd. Venus will be at the degree of the mid retrograde Sun-Venus conjunction that occurs on June 3rd, and there could be a pretty potent development or clues available around those dates as to what is the significance of this particular cycle means for you. 

Jupiter and Pluto make the first of three conjunctions in Capricorn on the 4th, though this will ramp up throughout the week. Whether this will prove to be a positive or destructive contact is to be seen, but whatever it brings is likely to be intense and transformative. A storyline is initiated that plays out between now and November, when the final contact is made. Pluto retrogrades on the 25th through early October, so it’s influence will be less strongly felt over the upcoming months, which will hopefully be a plus.

My very best wishes to everyone out there! Stay safe and be easy on yourself. Relax with a few deep breaths if you are feeling overwhelmed, and hopefully I’ll be back next month. Cheers ~ Jocelyn AKA SG

Stargazer March Forecast

MARCH FORECAST:

There are considerable shifts in the ambience this March, which will be noticed most palpably when Saturn moves into Aquarius on the 21st. Venus in Taurus collaborates with the Capricorn stellium generating a very productive and helpful atmosphere to take care of endemic long term issues that have particularly been triggered since the New Year. Solutions can be found now, particularly on the 28th when Venus is trine to the forming Jupiter – Pluto conjunction, which will be exact on April 5th. 

This is a positive month in which to cultivate business endeavors, love relationships, finances or simply tend to your gardening. (Taurus is symbolically connected to the garden and growth.) The March 9th Full Moon in Virgo fills out a Grand Earth Trine and links to Mars/Jupiter (trine) as well as Neptune (opposition). This is a fertile Moon phase in which to manifest around issues of abundance and within the professional/work sphere. An ideal situation may be within reach. 

The Sun is also making fruitful contacts from Pisces, and with Mercury direct on the 9th, this is going to be one of the best months of the year to take care of important business and personal matters. Affairs can be placed on solid footing, and following an otherwise tumultuous period it’s definitely the right time to settle matters and start moving forward. With Mercury direct, clarity is restored and topics initiated in early February that were sidetracked can be addressed as answers come to the surface.

Mars in Capricorn adds intensity to the mix, conjuncting Jupiter on the 20th, Pluto on the 23rd and Saturn on the 31st. Issues that have been pervasive become emphasized, but Mars can offer the will and energy to find a solution. Expect some degree of agitation on these dates while being mindful that it’s precisely this agitation that will stimulate taking action. If you run into a block, acknowledge it and examine what you can do to resolve the tension you are experiencing. Additionally be alert around the 19th – 20th for solutions to the ultimatum issued on January 12th, as Mars conjuncts the degree of the dynamic Saturn – Pluto conjunction. 

Saturn in Aquarius signals a substantial shift in consciousness towards a more socially oriented and humanitarian position. Coupled with Uranus in Taurus, the potentials regarding crypto currency and decentralized markets continue to emerge and will likely become codified during the Saturn Aquarius transit. For now, it’s just a glimpse of things to come, with Saturn – Aquarius transiting through early July then resuming in mid December. This suggests unfinished business to be completed by the end of the year before moving forward on these now frontiers and objectives.

MARCH 9 FULL MOON 19’ 36” VIRGO

MARCH HOROSCOPES:

ARIES 

March 20 – April 19

With a very strong career and financial emphasis this month, there is a good possibility you will advance or get a raise. Problematic situations with superiors now disintegrate as new agreements and circumstances are assured.

There is a competitive and even combative quality to these stars, and staying level headed will take you the furthest.

AQUARIUS 

January 20 – February 18

You get a bit of misdirection over the first two weeks of the month, while you mull over a recent decision.

With so much going on in your private life, this is probably the most therapeutic use of your stars right now. Saturn briefly (3 months) tests the waters of your sign.

February Horoscopes

FEBRUARY FORECAST: 

Pisces Mercury retrograde dominates February headlines, suggesting a slippery, ambiguous atmosphere underscores the other events and energies that precipitate. From Pisces Mercury has difficulty comprehending and articulating clearly through words, though expression through painting, dance, music and other art forms are enhanced and appropriate expressions of the current transit. The retrograde cycle amplifies a tendency to misunderstanding or misrepresentation, with facts and information likely to be in short supply and the intuitive and empathic nature of the sign debilitated. An important event or conversation on the 25th (Sun conjunct Mercury, signaling the mid point of the retrograde) begins to shed light on the situation, enabling clearer vision and a way forward.

Venus in Aries (February 7 – March 5) is having none of it and far less inclined to let a burning matter of the heart rest or wait. This impulsive placement likes to jump right in, even if life around it is sailing around in treacly slow motion. Venus contacts to Pluto and Saturn earlier in the month are more appropriate for making long term and committed arrangements (whether for love or business), though these ties are likely to be challenged or even disrupted by the end of February or early in March as a desire for more independence calls into question alliances that may feel dull or oppressive. 

Simultaneously a still strong presence of Earth energy is prevalent and galvanized by Mars in Capricorn (February 16 – March 30). The more abstract nature of Mars in Sagittarius recedes and seeks to make ideas generated over the prior weeks to take on concrete expression. This transit represents gritty determination and bestows incredible ambition. Mars conjunct South Node on the 25th is greeted by a friendly contact from Mercury retrograde in Pisces. This is likely to a be a low energy transit, and can signal a withdrawal while matters from the past resurface. It’s possible an issue or individual from the past comes out of the woodwork, though with Mercury involved a prior issue can be resolved through a productive discussion.  

The themes of the Saturn – Pluto conjunction that occurred January 12th will be reactivated on March 19th when Mars connects to the position of the aspect. Initiative can be taken on the concerning topics that were revealed at that time, and with Mercury direct by then, progress is assured. 

The 21st – 23rd is likely to be the most vitalizing period of the month while the Sun, Mars and Uranus link harmoniously between Capricorn, Pisces and Taurus. Interesting insights about emerging financial trends can arise and a balanced sense of harmony and excitement for the future prevails. Trying something new and expressing unique abilities or ingenuity can produce unexpected but advantageous outcomes and is highly recommended. The New Moon in Pisces augments this and offers a strong sense of intuition that can provide guidance within a material or professional situation.  

The first of three Jupiter sextile Neptune aspects occurs on the 20th. While the two were at odds last year, inflating both expectations and illusions, they collaborate productively this year, enabling a vision or wish to manifest more easily. Imagination and inspiration are highlighted, as is the spiritual realm. Deeply felt intuition motivates taking a course of action meant to expand consciousness and personal potential along a path of compassion and idealism.

2020 Stargazer Forecast

2020 GENERAL FORECAST:

Two very distinct themes shape the 2020 astrology forecast. First is the Capricorn stellium that culminates in January which establishes the most significant topics for the year right up front. Special attention must be given to the Saturn – Pluto conjunction, due to it’s rarity – the last time this aspect occurred in Capricorn was in 1518. Secondly, the retrograde periods of both Venus/Gemini then Mars/Aries, which mutually trigger adjustment or reconsideration that have consequences primarily within the relational sphere. Additionally the shift of the Nodal Axis from Cancer/Capricorn to Gemini/Sagittarius in early May signals that evolutionary directives are transformed as a new eclipse cycle emerges, presenting dramatic changes in the area of your chart affected.

Major activity and potential for complete metamorphosis occurs in the area of your chart where 22’ Capricorn falls. This is the degree of the Saturn – Pluto conjunction on January 12th and an astrology hotspot for the entire year. Taking a disciplined approach to transformation in this area intensifies, making substantial change a real possibility now, but requiring a consistent and determined approach to see it through. There is a groundbreaking quality to this combination and ambition to great achievement in some area (again, as indicated by where this specifically falls in your chart) through a complete regeneration of how you approach the topic. 

The atmosphere around this whole thing is pretty momentous, with a double Capricorn influence encouraging measured initiative to undertake a massive project, while being prepared for the long haul and sacrificing or releasing anything superfluous to the goal at hand for an indeterminate amount of time. A lot of excess was revealed (and hopefully) then relinquished last Summer – during the transits of the South Node to these two, much pertaining to inflated objectives or seeking power or control for it’s own sake. 

The negative manifestation of Capricorn/Saturn is an attachment to power on a symbolic or superficial level. Scorpio/Pluto is equally drawn to power, though its’ motives tend to be more subversive if unresolved trauma, especially that associated with loss of innocence, is unconsciously playing a role and externalizing itself through manipulative or destructive behavior patterns. With these two forces working together there is an opportunity to: a) conscientiously and pragmatically attend to the resolution of deep psychological issues that are undermining your effectiveness to meet the demands of reality and accomplish your long range goals, b) determine for yourself what power really is and restructure your life according to your own values. Leave behind appropriated symbols of success or social milestones that have been culturally informed or imposed upon you. 

Much of the work has actually occurred internally by the time the Saturn – Pluto aspect becomes exact. It’s at this pivotal moment when that work begins to manifest, or when you realize you are prepared to take that next step into the unknown. Awareness that all the pieces won’t fall into place immediately enables the patience required to deal with the vast reorganization required to make the most of what is at hand. Additional aspects include Jupiter conjunct Pluto and Jupiter sextile Neptune, both of which occur three – fold, due to retrogrades. Look to the initial aspect to reveal the major potentials for growth associated with the aspect, the second to make adjustments and the third to really see the manifestation of the opportunity. 

Jupiter conjunct Saturn falls at 0’ Aquarius at the end of the year. This precipitates a dynamic cultural shift and could augment the institution of new economic or political movements or policies. Justice and humanitarian values become codified (Saturn/Aquarius) and set a new precedent for society as a larger, interconnected organism. New technologies will be developed or emerge in the market (AI? Cryptocurrencies? IoT?) that signal changes to the status quo – for better or worse! New systems begin to arrive from late March through June, as Saturn makes it’s initial test run in Aquarius, retrograding May 11th and retreating back into Capricorn for a few more months to recalibrate for the bigger reveal in December.

VENUS + MARS RETROGRADE PHASES

Venus and Mars represent the archetypal masculine/feminine polarity as expressed through each individual through the signs and houses in which they reside in an individual’s chart. Venus is receptive, Mars is active. Where they work together harmoniously, either in a natal chart or between two individuals in synastry or composite, there is balance and flow between these fundamental principles. Alternately when they are in conflict (especially with the square and quincunx aspects,) there tends to be more abrasive or inharmonious experiences concerning, love, sex and pleasure. 

Venus is not only the goddess of love, but also represents ones inherent level of self esteem. It represents receptiveness to pleasure and belief you deserve it. The sign Venus resides in tends to be what you find pleasurable or attractive, the house position signifies how you attain it. Mars is associated with confidence, and the intrinsic belief you can do something. Your Mars sign represents the kind of accomplishments that arouse your sense of confidence, and the house position is the arena in which they are made. 

To add to the alchemy are natal (or transiting) aspects made to Venus and Mars, which also color and impact the experiences one might have surrounding the topics of love, romance, material acquisition, prosperity, (Venus) and the level of tenacity you possess to go after what you desire (Mars). Outer planets in detriment tend to have the most corrosive influence on the inherent properties represented by the personal planets in general (although they also tend to produce fascinating individuals who tend to live through and overcome extraordinary obstacles). 

Second to these would be natal retrogrades in the chart. With retrograde Venus, there is a fundamental issue with the level of self esteem, a lack of trust or belief that one deserves affection. Individuals possessing this placement have a subconscious tendency to undermine intimate relationships because they lack faith these can be lasting or successful. With retrograde Mars self-confidence is in question, and there can be intense vacillation between going after personal passions and losing momentum or sensing there is something fundamentally wrong or inappropriate about the objectives. 

In both instances of retrograde Venus or Mars there can be apprehension or even disgust pointed at individuals who exhibit the traits of these planets in a healthy and balanced way. There can additionally be triggering contacts with others that stimulate resentment or passive aggressive behaviors. This always reflects back to the individual needing to resolve internal issues and reconcile their own association to feelings of inadequacy to express the natural tendencies represented by Venus and Mars respectively. 

Contemporary retrograde transits of Venus and Mars are vital periods for exploring new techniques and making substantial lifestyle adjustments – not only for natally retrograde individuals, but anyone who seeks to find alternatives where it becomes obvious the current trajectory is no longer effective and new solutions are desired.

2020 feature two significant periods of reorientation: retrograde Venus through Gemini and Mars through Aries. The Venus retrograde begins on a square to Neptune, suggesting there is a disappointment in a relationship or an idealized circumstance that either falls short of expectation or is untenable for the time being. Whatever the precise situation, the period from May 13th – June 25th is one that calls for reevaluation and even some soul searching. It’s a positive time for reviewing prior events to see where an unfinished or unresolved issue from the past (even the way back past) is creating obstacles to personal satisfaction and success in the current time frame. 

The Mars transit is a bit more turbulent, and likely to manifest in the larger social order as a period of political upheaval, perhaps generating revolution or warfare as oppressed factions fight for autonomy and liberation from tyrannical regimes. Mars from Aries makes three full transits (square) to Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, signifying conflicts and a requirement for dynamic realignment of the status quo, especially in regard to individual rights as opposed to the force of authority. 

On a more personal level, it is likely that a project or pursuit runs out of momentum as long range and endemic issues or circumstances (highlighted by where Capricorn resides in your chart) need to be dealt with or overcome. There could be “red tape” or a very difficult situation to contend with before progress can be made. It’s not unlikely a certain amount of stress accompanies these transits and it’s possible finding ways to manage tension is one of the more valuable attributes of the process that unfolds over the second half of the year, particularly from September to mid – November.

ARIES 

March 20 – April 19

Venus Retrograde impacts communication and relationships. It could be difficult to get through to your spouse or a business partner at this time. There is reassessment of the viability of a connection connected to challenging financial circumstances. Old acquaintances may resurface, and one may even turn out to be a viable romantic or professional association, or make productive introductions. Mars Retrograde is very specific to you, as it falls in your sign. Be incredibly conscientious about your health during this period, as it’s easy to push yourself too hard and burn out or suffer from fatigue. Choose your battles carefully (or choose not to battle) especially during the retrograde phase, as you can come off quite aggressive or ruthless and provoke antagonism, particularly in your profession. Guard your reputation cautiously during this contentious period.    

TAURUS 

April 20 – May 20

Venus Retrograde highlights work and earnings, with a huge rethink possible about your self worth and how invested you feel in your job or assignments. You may consider a personal rebranding mission, though you are best to wait until later in May to make substantial or visible changes to your image. A huge development in the final week of May (Mercury conjunct North Node) signals a brilliant opportunity or insight regarding your earnings. Mars Retrograde has a strong effect on your relationships and features a heavy connection to your past and releasing prior regrets or feelings that inhibit your self-esteem. It’s likely a review of what (or who) did not work out in previous relationships has you questioning the viability of a contemporary relationship. Resolving internalized feelings of failure predicated on what has occurred before is paramount. Travel and pursuits regarding higher education should be postponed for the time being. 

GEMINI 

May 21 – June 20

Venus Retrograde is especially significant for you, since it falls in your sign. Love relationships in particular go through a period of recalibration, as you consider your true feelings, though a lot of this goes back to your own self – image and self – esteem, which may be in short supply during this phase. Those trying for pregnancy or adoption may wish to postpone for a few months while this transit levels out. Creative issues are also impacted, and artistic types will have to dig deeper to find their muse. Mars Retrograde signals a slow down on the job and impacts your social life. It’s possible you reconnect with old associates, and any unsettled debts can creep up at this time. There is some tumult associated with loans or shared financial agreements, it could also be a difficult time work wise, and a steady job or assignment may be difficult to pin down for the duration. You will be examining where your skills are best utilized, and this may also be the cause of holding back on taking a position while you reevaluate.  

CANCER 

June 21 – July 22

Venus Retrograde holds a very nostalgic quality of time for you, as you are likely reflecting on the past or pining for someone at a distance or who is out of touch for some reason. There may be unsettled matters in your domestic life that require reorganization, and you may desire to completely redo your home decor, though this could be a manifestation of wanting to erase the past, which actually is seeking confrontation and resolution. By the end of May this cycle clears and new information and prospects provide helpful guidance. Mars Retrograde affects your profession and can signal a downturn in energy towards your long range goals, particularly of the preceding months were very busy on this front. You are likely to reconsider your plans or objectives, seek a new course or alter your plans significantly. There are very contentious energies coming from partners who are unwilling to go along with you or who don’t support your agenda, and this could be a trying period for a relationship with a spouse or business partner. 

LEO 

July 23 – August 22

Venus Retrograde affects your most cherished aspirations and may trigger you to reconsider an objective that had fallen to wayside due to time constraints previously. A social event may bring you back into the orbit of an old friend or colleague that reminds you of this project and may rekindle your interest in trying for it again. The end of May has favorable overtones for getting this off the ground. Mars Retrograde signals a reconsideration of your life direction, educational goals, or how you reach the broader world with your message. Those working in academics or media will likely feel this most proportionately as you devise new strategies or techniques to find and reach an audience or pursue and cultivate knowledge. This can also produce a reconsideration of something that you may have sought to do, but were not able to actualize previously. Look at your current prospects and reevaluate the possibilities available to you now.

VIRGO 

August 23 – September 22

Venus Retrograde impacts your profession and reputation. There could be a dry period where you just don’t feel like you know where you are headed, or why, and begin to question your choices surrounding your career trajectory. Assignments may be short coming or a lack of praise for what you have accomplished could produce feelings of unease. Money matters can also be tricky, with your income dipping or expenses generating unfavorable conditions for you financially. Mars Retrograde signals an intensely transformative period for you in an intimate relationship, especially where you may be sharing or merging assets with another person, such as in a marriage or through business partnership. It may also indicate a difficult breakup, or division of assets, and there is also the potential of reevaluating a prior relationship that may have not culminated previously, but which you revisit to see if there is still a viable connection there. Private matters impact your self expression and love relationships, but can be detrimental. Make choices (or make none, for now!) with caution.

LIBRA 

September 23 – October 23

Venus Retrograde impacts shared economies, especially in relation to a media enterprise or your educational goals, which could be on a slow roll while the funding for a key project is resolved. You may get an experimental urge towards some form of broadcasting or self expression, portraying yourself in an unexpected way to a larger audience, either through the inter-webs or by traveling, performing or lecturing at a distance. Mars Retrograde dually impacts your finances and partnerships. Resources may be in short supply, which impacts your self image and has a mirroring affect on your relationships. There is the potential of pushing someone away because you feel unworthy of affection during this transit. Or the partner may pull away due to conflicts or obligations in their own life. There is a tense matter in the domestic life that needs to be reconciled during this transit before you can move forward. 

SCORPIO 

October 24 – November 21

Venus Retrograde affects a close, intimate relationship and brings commitments and matters of trust (including shared financial arrangements) up for review. There is the potential that an unresolved matter from the past is hindering your emotional availability or limiting the resources you have available (debt could be an issue) to move forward. This is a productive time to assess your expectations and what you, or others, really have to offer. Mars Retrograde impacts your health, productivity and self-image, and likely influences you to make substantial life changes in order to cultivate a more positive body image and boost self esteem. In order to do this, you will likely be challenged to reconsider some of your existing attitudes or make modifications to the most entrenched attributes of your daily routine. The more willingly you can dispense with beliefs that no longer serve you, the easier this transit becomes. Those in the job market could experience a delay, and will find better results towards the end of the year.

SAGITTARIUS  

November 22 – December 21

Venus Retrograde falls in your area of committed partnerships, and you will likely step back to review your commitments to others. It’s possible a serious relationship cools off in this phase or a partner is preoccupied or unavailable. It’s also likely that you rekindle an old flame, and while a second chance is possible, there may just be unsettled business that needs to be addressed so you can release this connection and move on. Delay important decisions. Mars Retrograde impacts love relationships, children and your creative self expression, also signaling a downward shift in your ability to express and receive affection or through artistic endeavors. Again the possibility of reconnecting with a former love interest (or creative passion pursuit that was placed on the back burner) is present at this time. In this period you are called upon to reconnect with your essence and the heart of what you seek to express as well as the form that takes. Those trying for pregnancy or adoption should wait until next year. 

CAPRICORN 

December 22 – January 19 

Venus Retrograde impacts work and career. You have to find new ways to organize your daily affairs to further your professional aspirations. If you have been in a high profile position and things moving forward swiftly, it’s possible a project or assignment is up in the air for a while while the resources and personnel required to accomplish a goal are reconfigured. Things line up favorably from the end of May. Mars Retrograde points to troubled circumstances in your domestic or personal life, or at the least an unsettled quality that is pervasive through the end of the year. You could have difficulties if you are trying to buy or sell property at this time, as your own attitudes and potential unwillingness to work with others is a deterrent to agreements on these matters. Your own aspirations and long term goals are held up through this process, and until reconciliation is possible.  

AQUARIUS 

January 20 – February 18

Venus Retrograde signals reconsiderations of a romantic or creative variety, you may be thinking of a lost love and pining over the one who got away. If you do reconnect with someone in this period, there is likely unfinished business between you. Resolve your karmic issues and move on. It’s also possible a creative project comes back into frame and you feel stimulated to make another attempt to see it to fruition. This might just be a distraction, but you if you enjoy yourself in the process, why not? Mars Retrograde factors in your communication and learning sector, and can slow the progress of educational goals temporarily. Equally likely is rediscovery of an interesting subject and you may decide to take a second crack at a literary or publishing project. Enjoy the discoveries along the way, but remain mindful that what comes into form now is unlikely to last. This is a temporary shift in atmosphere and direction. This is a positive time to reconnect with old friends and catch up.  

PISCES 

February 19 – March 20

Venus Retrograde affects your personal life and home. There could be unsettled conditions in your residence, especially if you are trying to make improvements or relocate. The necessary resources to make this happen may be in short supply, especially if you are waiting for word on a loan or mortgage. Keep in mind that conditions are only temporary. A female family member may turn up unexpectedly and require your assistance. Things turn in your favor in the late Spring. Mars Retrograde impacts finance and it appears you need to get sorted here in order to make desired progress on long term aspirations or a group project. An organization you belong to may actually provide difficulty for you through dues or fees you pay to participate. This is a time during which complete re-evaluation of your earnings and sense of self worth is likely to occur, potentially following a period of loss of income, or just the realization a road has come to an end. Confidence is established more easily towards the end of the year. 

November Horoscopes

NOVEMBER FORECAST:

Despite Mercury retrograde (October 31 – November 20), November is action packed with some really dynamic energy patterns emerging that cannot be ignored. While Mercury retro is, as always, not the most favorable time to launch a new venture or see a critical culmination within an existing one, certain situations will require immediate attention. Rather than view the retrograde period as a nuisance, choose to see it as a time of intensive focus and resolution around a very specific topic which currently requires a deep dive and reappraisal (Scorpio). 

Helpful aspects throughout this phase suggest substantial and long term solutions can be found to the most difficult problems if you are willing to dig in and be honest about what is required to make these happen. Information and events that unfold over the month of November yield a highly positive and satisfying outcome in December. Transformation is the key.

Mars moves into Scorpio on November 19th, a day before Mercury goes direct, intensifying this area of your chart and adding drive and initiative to an undertaking in this arena. A revealing discovery between the 11th and 13th can set an endeavor or association on a whole new course and sets the stage for a major development over the first few days of December. Another key event/activation is likely to occur on December 17th/18th, when Mars reaches the degree of the Sun-Mercury conjunction that occurs on the 11th. 

While these placements operate from the depths of ones deepest intuition, because of Mercury retrograde the influence goes a bit sideways, and is potentially less accurate. Be especially wary if suspicion is aroused. This is likely connected to unresolved trauma associated with a violation of trust that occurred in the past. As a plus this is a very good time in which to confront such issues and consider whether you are evaluating current circumstances through the lens of prior disappointment or disillusionment. 

Clearing the waters is crucial so that when Mars reaches Scorpio it can be at it’s most effective. This transit represents rebirth, and coupled with augmenting aspects to the Capricorn stellium that forms between now and January, a powerful and momentous shift is possible, on both societal and personal levels. Incredible tenacity and a critical focus on a specific issue is required, but the planetary alinements support this – so if you have a long range issue you want to resolve, or seek to make a significant change in your life (look at Capricorn and Scorpio in your chart for where the most substantial transformation can occur) Mars from Scorpio can make this a tenable probability. Realizations and conversations that occur this month set the stage for success if you can listen carefully and decode the message.

EXTENDED FORECAST + STARGAZER 2020 ASTROLOGY GUIDE (COMING SOON) AVAILABLE FOR PATREON SUBSCRIBERS

NOVEMBER HOROSCOPES:

ARIES 

March 20 – April 19

Joint financial matters could unravel, or what seemed like a straightforward contract or agreement could take a little more wiggle room to fall into place. Your intuition about a professional matter is strong meanwhile and trusting your instincts, especially in the early part of the month, can assist you in reaching a higher ground. Venus from Sagittarius boosts your desire to experience affection and pleasure. Someone who expands your world perspective could be an enticing match for you. Attached Aries will enjoy exploring cultural activities with their spouse or partner. Think big!

TAURUS 

April 20 – May 20

The Full Moon in your sign brings home the fundamental changes you have gone through this year, with a key relationship at the crux of a significant crossroads. A period of adjustment is in store within any committed relationships, which from the 20th regains clarity and emphasis. Energy could be lower through New Year and you will require a bit more rest moving into the winter months. Educational goals you have been pursuing show some signs of life and can get sorted out by early December, though it could feel like you are jumping through hoops to get there for the time being. 

GEMINI 

May 21 – June 20

Retrograde Mercury impacts you quite personally, Gemini, with a special emphasis on your job and profession flavoring the developments of the upcoming weeks. You get the clarity (or position) you seek and enter a very hard working phase from the 20th right into the New Year. A partnership may gone through it’s fair share of ups and downs this year, though November provides the optimum climate to create some loving memories, give and receive affection and make your intentions known. Positive energy surrounding your union prevails through the end of the year. 

CANCER 

June 21 – July 22

Most of the contentious energy surrounding a certain partnership is subsiding, though a love relationship, past or present seems to be up for review through the 20th. As Mercury rights its’ course and courageous (and aggressive) Mars moves into your arena of pleasure and creative pursuits, stoking the ardent flames of passion between you and someone who is likely to play a major role in your future. Dynamics at work or within an assignment that has a creative flair are harmonious, and collaborative efforts are likely to be especially fruitful for you this month. 

LEO 

July 23 – August 22

Leave some wiggle room in your domestic arrangements this month as the retrograde Mercury signals shifting conditions or indecisiveness. Old memories are stirred and this could be a valuable time to resolve a personal matter, peruse a scrap book or photo album and put the past to rest. Later in the month a situation can intensify and you’ll have to contend with an urgent residential situation. Venus is in a very favorable position adding sparkle to romance and recreation, creative activities and just making you feel good all over. Jupiter has one more month of expansive influence here – make the most of it.

VIRGO 

August 23 – September 22

What you say (or have said) can and will be used against you, though the current climate is quite favorable to Virgo, even if it takes you a few more weeks to make up your mind about about a situation or complicated love interest. People can wait while you decide the best course of action or seek your muse. Domestic and personal matters are very favorable, and with beneficial Venus and Jupiter spending the month in your area of home (as well as nurturing, self care and personal life) you can prioritize what matters most to you and sustain harmony and peaceful conditions. 

LIBRA 

September 23 – October 23

A strong financial emphasis is at play right now, with core issues coming to the surface in order to get sorted. This topic will be critical through the end of the year, and several opportunities to declare your values and worth will culminate over the next two months. Venus and Jupiter collaborate in your area of communication, meanwhile, making you extra charismatic and articulate. A negotiation can be quite successful at this time, though you do your best to wait until at least the final week of the month to put anything in writing. 

SCORPIO 

October 24 – November 21

The month is ripe for big personal and relationship developments, and despite some unexpected twists and turns, it’s possible a touch and go association is finally ready to take root. It may be difficult to know your own heart at the moment, or to express yourself with conviction, in which case you have to go deep within to find answers to perplexing issues. From the 20th, as Mercury rights its’ course and Mars enters your sign, you find both the courage and clarity to go after what you want the most. Until then, take pause to reflect on what that really is.  

SAGITTARIUS  

November 22 – December 21

It’s a really delicious month for Sagi with the dual transits of Venus and Jupiter in your sign. You shine brightly over the coming weeks and can make the most of what you have learned about yourself during the life expanding transit of Jupiter through your sign over this past year. Factors behind the scenes remain at large, and especially from the 19th you have to get to the bottom of a subconscious issue, perhaps a debilitating habit or belief that is hindering real progress. Remain attuned to these and seek therapy if you require it. Living superficially will not particularly benefit you now.

CAPRICORN 

December 22 – January 19 

You are invigorated and ready to see your dreams take flight and come to fruition, though there seems to be a few kinks in the plan that need to be resolved first. There is a reflective, even introverted quality to the month as you chrysalis within the final stage of a substantial metamorphosis that has been culminating internally over the prior year. This gives way to the awesome developments and rebirth you experience beginning in December leading to dramatic events likely to occur at the onset of 2020. Look within to heal and release your prior reservations. 

AQUARIUS 

January 20 – February 18

Emphasis is placed on your life direction, reputation and goals over the coming weeks, and while there is some back and forth on where you set your sights due to Mercury retrograde, an intensification from the 20th forward is likely to culminate in a whole new trajectory for you, making this a fruitful time to explore all your options. Social life is vibrant, with many positive contacts and events brightening your agenda and adding to the holiday cheer. Experiences with those who share your interests can lead to expansive discoveries and meaningful insights. 

PISCES 

February 19 – March 20

With one last month of Jupiter making it’s beneficial transit through your area of profession, reputation and status, coupled with the very positive influence of Venus in close collaboration, this is the time to go after a personal milestone. Mercury retrograde negates the productive ambience somewhat, as misunderstandings are also highlighted. Regardless, the seeds you plant now can be very potent and lead to a victory and lucrative opportunities in the future. The steadying influence of Saturn applying to Neptune in your sign signals you have a realistic sense of what is possible. Use this vital combo to get something off the ground.  

Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio 2019

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

October Horoscopes

OCTOBER FORECAST:

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

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

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

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

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

OCTOBER HOROSCOPES:

ARIES 

March 20 – April 19

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

TAURUS 

April 20 – May 20

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

GEMINI 

May 21 – June 20

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

CANCER 

June 21 – July 22

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

LEO 

July 23 – August 22

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

VIRGO 

August 23 – September 22

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

LIBRA 

September 23 – October 23

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

SCORPIO 

October 24 – November 21

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

SAGITTARIUS  

November 22 – December 21

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

CAPRICORN 

December 22 – January 19 

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

AQUARIUS 

January 20 – February 18

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

PISCES 

February 19 – March 20

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

September Horoscopes

SEPTEMBER FORECAST:

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

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

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

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

Next month Mars will enter your sign for a once in two years visit, though you’ll start to get signals from mid month that signs of life are already stirring. Transits of Mercury and Venus in your sign highlight your best qualities and signal love could be on the way. A residential or personal matter that has been in a holding pattern begins to move forward.

SCORPIO 

October 24 – November 21

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

SAGITTARIUS  

November 22 – December 21

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

CAPRICORN 

December 22 – January 19 

September is easily one of the best months of 2019 for Capricorn. (You’ll LOVE December, when Jupiter enters your sign.) Harmonizing Virgo transits coupled with your ruling planet Saturn going direct on the 18th indicate a release valve is being opened, and that the difficulties of the prior months are fading in the rear view mirror.

Opportunities for growth and the realization of your dreams is possible now.

AQUARIUS 

January 20 – February 18

The emphasis is on profound inner transformation right now. It’s possible this is manifesting through a deeply committed partnership, as the area impacted also rules your most intimate relationships.

A far lighter vibration comes into play after the 14th, as planets move into your sister sign Libra. Vitality and enthusiasm return and you feel ready to expand into exciting new frontiers.

PISCES 

February 19 – March 20

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

August Horoscopes

Leo Season

MONTHLY FORECAST:

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

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

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