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.   

PRIMARY ASPECTS FOR 2020:

SATURN CONJUNCT PLUTO – DEFINING POWER, TENACITY, WILL TO OVERCOME 

JANUARY 12th 

JUPITER CONJUNCT PLUTO – EXPANDING POWER + INFLUENCE; GREAT EXPECTATIONS

April 4th; June 29th; Nov 12th

JUPITER CONJUNCT SATURN – REGIMENTED GROWTH; REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS

DECEMBER 21

JUPITER SEXTILE NEPTUNE – EXPLORING DIVINE INSPIRATION; WISHFUL THINKING

February 20; July 27th; October 12

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.

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.

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.

HOROSCOPES:

ARIES 

March 20 – April 19

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

TAURUS 

April 20 – May 20

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

GEMINI 

May 21 – June 20

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

CANCER 

June 21 – July 22

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

LEO 

July 23 – August 22

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

VIRGO 

August 23 – September 22

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

LIBRA 

September 23 – October 23

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

SCORPIO 

October 24 – November 21

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

SAGITTARIUS  

November 22 – December 21

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

CAPRICORN 

December 22 – January 19 

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

AQUARIUS 

January 20 – February 18

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

PISCES 

February 19 – March 20

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

August Horoscopes

Leo Season

MONTHLY FORECAST:

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

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

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

June Forecast

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

MONTHLY FORECAST:

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

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

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

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

NEW MOON 12’ 34” GEMINI June 3rd

FULL MOON 25’ 53” SAGITTARIUS June 17th  

JUNE HOROSCOPES:

ARIES 

March 20 – April 19

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

TAURUS 

April 20 – May 20

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

GEMINI 

May 21 – June 20

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

CANCER 

June 21 – July 22

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

LEO 

July 23 – August 22

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

VIRGO 

August 23 – September 22

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

LIBRA 

September 23 – October 23

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

SCORPIO 

October 24 – November 21

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

SAGITTARIUS  

November 22 – December 21

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

CAPRICORN 

December 22 – January 19 

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

AQUARIUS 

January 20 – February 18

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

PISCES 

February 19 – March 20

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

Weekly Forecast 5/12-18

WEEKLY FORECAST:

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

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

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

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

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

Weekly Scopes 5/5-11

WEEKLY FORECAST:

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

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

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

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES 

March 20 – April 19

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

TAURUS 

April 20 – May 20

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

GEMINI 

May 21 – June 20

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

CANCER 

June 21 – July 22

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

LEO 

July 23 – August 22

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

VIRGO 

August 23 – September 22

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

LIBRA 

September 23 – October 23

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

SCORPIO 

October 24 – November 21

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

SAGITTARIUS  

November 22 – December 21

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

CAPRICORN 

December 22 – January 19 

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

AQUARIUS 

January 20 – February 18

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

PISCES 

February 19 – March 20

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