Weekly Forecast 2/10-16

WEEKLY FORECAST:

There aren’t exactly heaps of aspects this week, though a final conjunction of Mars to Uranus at 29’ Aries provides more than enough punch to make this a dynamic and potentially transformative period on it’s own. The atmosphere is highly unpredictable and explosive now, and there is a sense of urgency punctuating the area where where this occurs in your chart. The whole week is flavored by a powerful push to liberation, with the days leading up to the main event both electrifying though also a bit tense or volatile. There could be some sleepless nights, perhaps a mad dash to the drawing board with an ingenious idea. The themes of the recent Aquarius New Moon continue to resonate with Mercury and Uranus collaborating, accelerating the pace of activity and keeping things brisk and lively.

From there Mars moves into Taurus (February 14 – March 31) and the theories and speculation that have been developing since New Years begin to take some kind of form or tangible expression. The energy is slower and emphasizes the acquisition of material security. While Venus (in Capricorn) and Mars will not make a precise aspect across the earth signs, these placements offer a more stable atmosphere to attend to financial or professional topics, while also enhancing relational matters. A more realistic and grounded approach to the matters of the heart (and mutually within business associations,) is favored through the end of the month, making this a positive time to enter into commitments. 

Mercury in Pisces enhances receptivity and intuition. Thoughts are conveyed telepathically or through subtle gestures. Due to the upcoming retrograde phase, Mercury remains in the sign through mid April. A long alignment to Neptune stimulates creativity, or can just lead to copious amounts of daydreaming. Productive aspects made to Saturn simultaneously should indicate that a goal attached to a creative or even a mystical or metaphysical endeavor seeks to manifest. This period can get pretty murky but equally inspires amazing faith and fantasy. Positive results culminate in early April by taking things a step at a time and remembering that what you see is not always what you get.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

You have the stamina to push through on a big personal objective right now, and will find your best potential outcomes arise through collaboration with your friends. Though you play a substantial role and perhaps even lead the team on this one, you are operating behind the scenes for the most part. Professional success comes where you can work as intuitively as possible. The financials are also in frame and you can apply yourself to acquisition and resources. It’s time to define personal priorities what you really value.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Following a period of drifting and introspection you’re ready to hit the accelerate switch and get motoring on your personal mission. You first, of course, need to define the goal, and a few convos with your crew, tribe or just someone whose opinion you trust can help you square away the details. A lot is percolating just beneath the surface, and it’s possible you feel in a birthing process as something emerges. Be particularly conscientious regarding health now, there could be an accident or illness.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

There is a huge professional emphasis coming in over the next few months and you are well served by following your intuition as you reach towards your aspirations. You are also required to clarify your goals, and with the upcoming Mercury retrograde approaching there are likely to be a few plot twists on the road to success. A role behind the scenes could hold appeal over the coming weeks. You may be developing a strategy and need some away time to clear your head and lay down a plan of action.     

CANCER June 21 – July 22

You’re entering a rather provocative phase and it suits you to explore your options right now, as they are numerous and could provide interesting opportunities in the near future. A professional breakthrough is possible this week as well, and if you’ve been seeking a new avenue in your career, it could come barging right through the door. You may equally just feel motivated to initiate a bold move on your own, especially if you have wanted to start your own business. If conditions are unsatisfactory, you can break away from these quite swiftly.      

LEO July 23 – August 22

Seemingly contradictory forces are at work: on one hand you want to lie low in your fox hole, though on the other your reputation might be on the line compelling you to come out and stand up for yourself. It’s possible that you are working behind the scenes on a classified project that isn’t quite ready for the limelight, even if you are thrust into it yourself. A breakthrough in a partnership that opens doors to adventure is also likely, though asserting your prerogative could equally be perceived as an ultimatum. Pick your battles, there are some agitated individuals out there itching for a showdown.    

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

You could be on a long and winding road with a former or potential partner over the next couple months. The influence of Mercury in opposition to you can produce conflicts and disagreement, and the general potential for misunderstanding is particularly high, especially in March. With Venus and Saturn collaborating in your area of love and pleasure you are looking for long term satisfaction, and by staying true to your values it’s less likely you will be guided too far off course. An intimate situation reaches a boiling point midweek. Be careful what you wish for.          

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

The volatile nature of your relationships persists somewhat longer, with a big punctuation mark midweek assuring some kind of final resolution (for better or worse) that regardless of shape or form, ultimately liberates you from constraints you have sought to emancipate yourself from. A commitment you enter into likely has financial overtones. You continue to get down to basics where the work-life balance is concerned, with the period between now and early April essential for eliminating all but what is necessary to increase productivity or benefit your health.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

A real shift in atmosphere this week brings noticeable movement within your relationship(s). If your love life has been on lockdown, you start to see signals and signs of life, while those currently involved are like to be rediscovering passion. There may also be those reopening a closed chapter, in some cases the timing wasn’t right on the last go around, for others in order to settle an unresolved situation and say goodbye once and for all. A breakthrough is possible at work, and if you have desired change or self employment, the time is right. 

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22 – Dec 21

You feel limitless this week, as excitement builds around a personal or creative project. A love relationship could prove to be equally explosive, and you might proclaim your feelings to someone either quite unexpectedly or in a most unusual way. Regardless of the exact shape or form this all takes, what happens this week proves how far you have come in the last several years and how much more confident you are now than you were previously. Earnings, possessions and domestic life are also in frame and despite a few twists and turns on the road ahead, your position is sealed soon enough. 

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19 

You’ve felt the earth constantly moving under your feet over the last 8 years or so, and achieving a stable residential situation has likely proved exceptionally challenging. As the status quo became unacceptable, dynamic and dramatic reorganization of your personal life was required, likely causing significant growing pains and conflict as these adjustments and challenges occurred. This trend is fortunately on it’s way out and a culmination midweek signals far more agreeable conditions are on their way in. By early April, this situation is settled once and for all.       

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

Friends and confidants open doors to dynamic opportunities, and you are excited and enthusiastic to try something new and unusual. A shift in your perspective completely rejuvenates when you recognize you possess a bravery that can propel you to new heights of experience. Financial matters will require attention over the coming 8 weeks, with the potential to make positive changes if you are willing to evaluate what works with a bit of common sense and release a fantasy that has not panned out thus far. There could be a contentious climate at home or with family members, so tread carefully where people might be on edge.  

PISCES February 19 – March 20

The next 8 weeks could prove to be the most active of the year for you, though where you choose to place your attention (social life, creative activities, love, personal development, all of the above?) is a decision that only you can make for yourself. Many topics or people could be vying for your attention, and here too you have to distinguish what is essential (and what is not) to avoid overwhelm. There could be a financial windfall this week, and if so it is likely the result of years of determination to realize your personal priorities and live your own values. Freedom, how ever you define it, has been instrumental in what coalesces.

Weekly Forecast – 2/3 – 9

WEEKLY FORECAST:

Sensitivity prevails in the early part of the week, while Venus squares Chiron as it departs Sagittarius. This contact highlights a sore spot or topic by revealing perceived vulnerabilities. This may not be the best day to pursue a matter of personal significance, especially within a romantic association, confidence may be low and there is a bit of a pessimistic vibe floating around. This is a good time to look within and examine the sensitivity is being aroused during this transit. Allow for self acceptance at this moment and you may be able to pin down where feelings of inadequacy or unworthiness could be holding you back from attaining what you desire in the area where Chiron is currently inhabiting in your chart.

From there Venus shifts into Capricorn, and the ambience quickly becomes more reserved and serious as well as tenacious and goal oriented. Compelling and even insurmountable obstacles to objectives that have been predominant since New Year are seen through a new lens, and throughout February it is possible that resources become available that enable the resolution of endemic issues. It is also likely that affection or taking a softer approach to these topics make it possible to overcome any setbacks that have been recently encountered. Where Sun and Mercury revealed obstacles that need to be overcome, Venus now offers a solution. 

The Aquarius New Moon on the 4th provides a spectacular new beginning infused with positivity and the optimum atmosphere for expressing a unique point of view with enthusiasm and optimism. Jupiter makes a supportive and favorable contribution here, encouraging generosity through it’s sustained contact with Sun, Moon and Mercury throughout the week. Good news comes in on several fronts, and this is a great time to give and receive (if not materially, then spiritually) both effortlessly and graciously. Even small gestures can enhance an atmosphere that is encouraging and forward facing. 

A refreshed perspective opens the door for new opportunities to arise. Intellectual and philosophical perspectives can be explored and provide fascinating insights. Social encounters should revolve around the exchange of information and ideas. This can also be a progressive period for business, especially where technology or networks of people are connected over different regions or cultural divides. Venus in Capricorn can provide the savvy and determination, while the New Moon combined with Mercury and Jupiter a broad vision with limitless possibilities. Restriction is replaced with liberation.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

This is a great time to connect with those likeminded, your ideas and input are appreciated and opens doorways to exiting new experiences. Over the coming weeks you have the opportunity to see a cherished dream take flight and connecting with your core crew is the secret ingredient that will bring you success. You are at your best from late Friday into the weekend. This is the moment to take a stand for what you really want, the universe is backing you up. The grueling professional tests you have recently endured give way to a more favorable climate. You have not one, but two such opportunities this year, with Venus making another visit in December. Don’t estimate your current position – with Mars in your sign you possess the stamina to go after what you want now.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Professional auspices are bright and this is a favorable time to seek outside assistance to get a business enterprise in motion. Ideas seem to percolate out of no where, and you may find yourself striking out into a whole new territory. Your instincts about this are trustworthy, so go with what’s in your gut. You rarely get such compelling direction from your inner compass. Venus from Capricorn is very conducive to your pleasure seeking tendencies and amplifies your Earthy allure. Any set backs to your long range plans you may have experienced recently are quickly forgotten under these auspicious developments. You still do well to rest up a bit, with Mars preparing to charge into your sign next week – it’s all systems go! 

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

If you have hesitated to express your interest in someone, auspices are favorable this week to make your move. Planning for the future establishes a positive connection based on trust and the reciprocation of mutual desires. Even if the outcomes you seek seem out of reach, the current outlook supports you to at least state your intentions clearly, and in doing so you are that much more likely to attain a cherished objective. Venus activates a secret and sultry section of your chart over the coming weeks. Intimacy has powerful overtones, but also healing and beneficial qualities. An agreement you come to can ease financial concerns. On the other hand, a close relationship may also reveal it’s limitations or arouse concerns that have been the cause of apprehension since the early days of the year.   

CANCER June 21 – July 22

This is a great week to rejuvenate from the inside out, as the link between physical and spiritual dimensions are currently reinforcing one another. The Aquarius New Moon could push you out of the safety of your comfort zone, but by following a bread crumb trail into the realm of the strange and unusual, you may see considerable improvement in financial matters, particularly where you partner with another to achieve a common goal. Love comes back in a big way – not once but twice this year as an enticing transit of Venus in your area of commitment shines a better light on someone who may have distant or oblivious to your charms in recent weeks. A commitment you make now stands the test of time, so only make promises you can keep.        

LEO July 23 – August 22

New dynamics and opportunities in relationships unfold this week, and a shift in perspective, (maybe yours, maybe their’s) stimulates exciting new avenues ripe for exploration. Connecting to a shared sense of pleasure and creativity is the key to lasting satisfaction, and is more likely to permeate your encounters than usual. Those waiting on news about pregnancy or adoption could be in for especially joyous developments. Health issues or power struggles at work that you encountered over the last month start to be reconciled for the better. More favorable conditions prevail now as people begin to appreciate your expertise or the remedy or treatment assists in the recovery of a debilitating ailment.    

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

Limitations and vulnerabilities within your close relationships continue to be revealed. Whether you choose to allow these to become divisive issues that bring about a separation or respond with sensitivity that enables a deeper expression of intimacy and connection is up to you. With Venus stimulating the sector of pleasure and romance, the overall ambience is softer and more amenable to turn lemons into lemonade or a frog into a prince, if you prefer. Contacts over the coming weeks will highlight where working towards a mutual understanding to overcome obstacles may still be required. Productivity gets a huge boost this week and your efficiency can likely be attributed to harmonious conditions in your domestic sphere or with family members. Changing up the routine or a home gym also supports this.        

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Where love may have been lacking new avenues open up this week during a very auspicious New Moon. A creative project could also get a boost and a contract or concept that comes to fruition in this period paves the way for future success. Your ability to convey your feelings and ideas with enthusiasm makes this possible, especially where a venture or association features unconventional overtones. Also on the agenda is some form of resolution within your domestic circumstances. A move or some other long sought for change to your living arrangement moves forward in incremental steps over the next few weeks. Intuition offers insight into how a this situation can most effectively be addressed. Recent obstacles which you have encountered can be overcome with your trademark approach to diplomatic problem solving. 

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

Where one life path has come to an end, another will come to replace it soon enough. The fates have been working overtime on your behalf and where you may have recently suffered a setback or loss, this was merely to clear the way for bigger and brighter opportunities ahead. This week you have major assistance to clear up your living situation or even start anew if required. Recent professional developments could see you contemplating a relocation and there seems to be financial assistance (and incentives) available to make this a reality. Social life is picking up and there could be some really enticing invitations coming your way this month. There could also be some realizations about someone you have been getting to know that trigger unease. Day at a time, baby.

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22 – Dec 21

Daily life and communication are really where it’s at for you right now Sag. This equally applies to a blog website or media based project. Anything that helps you get your message out to a larger audience is emphasized and success is enhanced through your own optimism to carry out an endeavor. There are exciting social overtones present, enabling you to win over an audience with your confidence and enthusiasm. Where financial matters have been provoking apprehension or concern, balance and harmony can be restored by maintaining a tighter grip of your budget and more realistic appraisal of your resources. Restricting yourself to the essentials for the time being remedies some of the longer range challenges present in the current cycle and ultimately enable you to enjoy greater freedom soon enough.   

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19 

You double your pleasure this year with not one, but two full transits of Venus in your sign, a highly beneficial influence that enables you to enjoy life a bit more. Where you have been grappling with constraints some encouragement flows in now that holds the potential to ease your burdens. Much of what you are experiencing in this cycle (particularly since the eclipse in early January) connects to a fundamental desire to reorder your life in the image that you have determined is appropriate for you. As a Capricorn, living up to your potential is THE primary objective. The stuff you have left behind didn’t fit, and while extricating yourself from inappropriate circumstances and individuals may have initially caused growing pains, a sacrifice was essential. Trust your instincts with money matters this week, they are right on target and can turn up some very exciting new prospects.    

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

It’s a brilliant week for you to make a new beginning. A pervasive sense of renewal and rejuvenation opens the door to incredible opportunities for personal growth. Much of this may delivered through your in real life social network, online tribe or followers. If you have been developing a project connected to technology you’ll likely receive some form of acclaim for it now. A love relationship takes on mysterious but potentially alluring overtones, possessing a sacrificial or sympathetic qualities over the coming month. It could equally just be time to let go of the past and extinguish the torch you carry for the one that got away. Hidden talents or resources may be revealed as well, and intuition is pronounced in this phase. Taking care of your spiritual well being goes a long way to enhance your effectiveness in other areas of life.        

PISCES February 19 – March 20

While you are known for your connection to the unknown and esoteric realms, when was the last time you really tapped this vital attribute of your psyche? This week provides marvelous opportunities to reinstate your life line to the strange and wonderful dimensions of your subconscious. Your instincts about a professional opportunity are also right on – follow a hunch to get ahead in your career. Socially you are entering a positive phase, and even if recent setbacks brought a bittersweet ending to certain relationships, these are quickly replaced with a more upbeat and beneficial atmosphere in which to forge new connections. Events that possess a touch of elegance or glamour are especially appealing, and could bring an enticing new love connection into your orbit!   

Stargazer February Horoscopes

MONTHLY FORECAST:

February features a significant change in ambience. Hinging on a few substantial shifts, the slow going atmosphere coupled with the intensive and heavy considerations of the previous weeks molts into a calmer atmosphere, a prelude to Spring upcoming. Earth becomes emphasized with Venus in Capricorn (February 4 – March 1) and Mars in Taurus (February 14 – March 31). The inspirational ideas precipitated during the Fire transits of January now seek tangible expression. Mercury enters Pisces from the 10th for an extended stay (through April 17th, due to the retrograde period in March, more on Mercury Retrograde here ->) during which perception becomes more intuitive and creative imagination flourishes. This will be particularly resonant at the end of March as Mercury makes a LONG transit conjunct Neptune while stationing direct. A highly significant conversation, agreement or decision around February 19th (Mercury conjunct Neptune, sextile Saturn) sets the stage. With Neptune featured, a dream or premonition around this time could hold a significant message.  

Uranus is highlighted throughout the month, making final activations from Aries, conjunct to Mars (Feb. 13) and square Venus (Feb. 28) which urge independence if not outright autonomy. The Sun and Mercury in Aquarius as well as the New Moon on the 4th underscore this, and where innovation collaborates with inspiration (Jupiter in Sagittarius), there are positive developments and results. Mars conjunct Uranus is by far the most volatile in the mix, bringing about sudden, although liberating, shifts and motivating an experimental or inventive approach. Late Aries is where your chart will be affected, (as are the houses ruled by both Mars and Uranus in your natal zodiac) and the areas through which you can express a unique and authentic point of view over the coming 2 year cycle. 

January eclipse storylines are also advancing, particularly with Saturn conjunct the Capricorn Solar eclipse degree over the first 10 days of the month, stabilizing an endeavor or enterprise that was put into motion on or around January 6th. Valentines Day comes in on the tailwind of Mars ingress into Taurus, which activates the Leo Lunar Eclipse of January 21. There is a strong feeling, perhaps of nostalgia, recognizing that a way of life has come to an end, though these likely extend back as far as last Summer if not Halloween. The trajectory pivots mid month, and a new, future oriented path opens up. Venus from Capricorn links up to Saturn and Pluto (also in the sign) as well as Neptune from Pisces, indicating assistance is available to accomplish the projects that have been initiated since New Years.  

The obstacles and difficult considerations that were present in January are seen through a different lens now and love or a creative approach assists in over coming issues that previously seemed insurmountable. Certainly you can accomplish more together than alone! Venus stimulates the Capricorn eclipse degree over the weekend of the 16th, and a person or resources come through that enables the realization of an ambitious agenda. The more difficulties that were tackled in January the bigger the payoff now. A conjunction of Venus to South Node between the 24th – 26th of the month signals a karmic return on prior choices and actions, for better or for worse. There could be unfinished business to attend to with former partners or lovers who might arrive back on the scene around this time, and where you might experience a certain “ick factor”, this is the who, what or where it’s time to move away from. Emancipation from what no longer serves makes room for bigger and better opportunities that steer you back towards the evolutionary directives that lead to the future. 

MONTHLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

Having tackled significant professional concerns, the atmosphere becomes more supportive and amenable to make progress on your goals. You release or complete an objective towards the end of February that frees you to explore better prospects moving forward. Mid month is particularly eventful as you initiate a very personal objective and set an important agenda for the next 2 years. A financial emphasis comes into play through March, though focusing will probably be difficult with all the day dreaming and background noise Mercury stimulates through mid April. Perhaps a trip down memory lane is called for. Closing a few chapters while you are there will make you far more effective in the future. 

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

You are much more in your element during February, and friends and associates in particular lend a special hand over the coming weeks if not months. Career directives command attention, and you could be working your way into a high profile position between now and your birthday. The New Moon on the 4th spells this all out quite clearly, and is a positive time for setting intentions and approaching those who may have the resources to assist you in your aims. Volatile energy behind the scenes, especially around mid month, stimulate the pre-birth to your re-birth next month. Domestic matters require settling first and foremost. If you have been considering a move, things could fall into place quite swiftly. 

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

The heavy considerations of the prior weeks begin to subside, replaced by a far more adventurous, future oriented mindset. The atmosphere gets a bit more obtuse while Mercury acts from Pisces, on one hand stimulating your professional objectives and opportunities, but simultaneously obfuscating your thought process. By the final week of February, the pace slows substantially, triggering a period of reconsideration about where you are headed next. A decision or conversation around the 19th is significant, though reorganization will be required before you can pull this one off. Intuition in this period shows you your hearts true desire. Circumstances evolve to offer an effortless conclusion during the first week of April. 

CANCER June 21 – July 22

Having confronted the concerning issues within a partnership, a far more amenable and positive ambience prevails while Venus enhances pleasure and connectivity within your closest alliances. A meaningful commitment can be established, especially between the 17th – 23rd, with especially potent and transformative developments occurring around the 23rd. Expressing your hearts’ desires brings you closer to someone than you had even imagined possible. More disruptive influences may be present over the final week, likely echoing professional obligations or tensions that arise on the 13th. Former partnerships or associations may creep into frame, signaling what you are ready to release.       

LEO July 23 – August 22

An emphasis on your commitments continues to grow, with a stunning opportunity to embrace the new and improved during the New Moon on February 4th. True Romance can sneak up on you in this phase, and developments mid month also feature unexpected – but welcome developments. A long Mercury transit affects intimate and financial relationships through mid April, so if you have been expecting news about a loan, alimony or cash settlement, expect to wait a bit longer. There are plot twists in store that draw this one out a bit longer. Professional goals push you to the limit from Valentines Day. 

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

Where love relationships (or lack thereof) may have been concerning, you can establish new priorities and associations this month, while Venus bestows a pleasurable influence on matters of the heart. From now through mid April, personal relationships may be in a state of flux, particularly during March when Mercury retrograde instigates numerous plot twists. Trust intuition around the 19th, as an alignment to Neptune that precipitates the attainment of a cherished dream in early April. The 17th – 23rd is a compelling period for establishing (or possibly re-establishing) a flow of dialogue between you and the object of your desire. Easy does it.        

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Domestic circumstances become easier to manage, and if you had considered a move or other substantive change to your living arrangements over the early days of the year, it’s possible to make and carry out a plan now. A relationship could precipitate this development unexpectedly, especially around the 13th or towards the end of the month. The New Moon is also favorable and opens a door to initiating a favorable love connection. On the other hand, endings that occur this month are likely beyond overdue. Let it go and don’t look back. From mid month you begin to get a glimmer of the exciting new order that will transform your financial realm beginning in March. 

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

Love and creative prospects carry immense potential to offer you pleasure this month, and between now and early April you are laying significant groundwork for a development. To get there, some to and fro motion is required while you work and rework the best route to your heart’s deepest desire, though the work you put in and the extent to which you trust your inner vision, the greater the reward when this comes together effortlessly in two months time and a cherished dream comes to stunning fruition. From mid month you begin to get clues of the exciting directions precipitating in your closest partnerships. It won’t necessarily be easy, but you definitely won’t be bored.

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22 – Dec 21

The atmosphere lightens considerably this month, and you find more to enjoy, especially with Jupiter now in your sign. Stark financial issues you confronted last month yield opportunities for growth. Sticking to a budget pays off for you. Domestic and personal matters are highlighted from mid month, and although you are likely to see at least one plot twist between now and mid April regarding a residential matter, this is a favorable time to invest in property. It’s equally likely that a long lost family member re-emerges out of the woodwork with a compelling message. The 13th is compelling: what do you desire the most and what are you willing to do to get it?   

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19 

The ambience softens for you as the more confrontational dynamics of the prior month subside. Patience enabled you to transcend insurmountable difficulties and you can now establish yourself in unprecedented ways over the first 10 days of the month, the outcome of the self awareness and determination that precipitated around the Capricorn eclipse in early January. The 17th – 23rd is a  powerful period for getting your message across. Negotiations are favored. A contentious residential matter comes to a stunning culmination on the 13th. The liberation you have sought after is assured. From there, Mars urges pleasure pursuits while transiting Taurus between Valentines and the end of March.     

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

You get a brand new start from the New Moon in your sign on the 4th, and can hit the reset button on any attribute of your life (or the whole thing if you prefer to!) and start over for the better. Friends and associates seem to play a major supportive role to your personal goals this year, and this is an auspicious time to join a group or organization through which you can develop your hopes and dreams. Financial matters come into frame from mid month, with a few plot twists in store as far as where it’s coming from and where it’s all going between now and mid April, though a dream can be realized in this phase if you stay true to your vision.      

PISCES February 19 – March 20

The vexations of the prior weeks subdue and especially from the 10th you are likely to find you are much more at ease with yourself. From mid month, an extended transit of Mercury in your sign stimulates an active agenda, but also reappraisal of yourself during the retrograde phase next month. A large part of this inquiry connects to how you will actualize a cherished personal objective, and while there are a few detours up on the road ahead, you do well to take your time over the coming weeks and take in as many perspectives and possibilities as you can. In doing so you make a discovery that bring everything together effortlessly in early April.   

Stargazer Weekly 1/27 – 2/2

COMBUSTION

WEEKLY FORECAST:

Following the week where everything happened, this is one where it seems much less goes down in comparison. Although most of the influences are somewhat subtle, this is a key period for initiation as both short and long term storylines are activated. The renewal of the Sun – Mercury cycle in the early part of the week sets the pace and day to day objectives of the next two to four months. The Bigger Picture is illuminated as Saturn and Neptune form their sextile. Although the aspect is essentially effective between January 24 – February 10th, it is over this coming Thursday into Friday that it becomes exact.

Mars square Pluto represents a significant turning point nine months in the making, likely rife with conflict or power struggles. Where Pluto has been influential in your chart over the last several years, and specifically an objective or decision that precipitated late last April surrounding that topic, there is a decisive breakthrough. This one can come at a very personal cost, as dormant, yet very powerful energies are activated. Venus trine Uranus occurs at the same time and generates a far more carefree ambience, infusing an otherwise contentious atmosphere with an offbeat or unexpected development within a relationship, and keeping things a bit more light hearted.

Sun and Mercury are conjunct at 7’ Aquarius on Monday, indicating innovation and experimentation are key ingredients that will propel activities and enterprises between now and mid March. The mental sphere is dominant as Mercury passes ahead of the Sun, and decisions are predicated more on the thorough intellectual assessment of a situation and less from gut instincts. Any lingering issues from around late November 2018 are now swiftly resolved. This aspect signals a point of departure and a period of great activity, as well as the halfway marker between the more introspective retrograde periods, which tend to slow response times considerably, although in many cases for the better in the long run. (The most recent retrograde occurred in December and the next is on it’s way in March.) 

Read more about the upcoming Mercury retrograde cycle HERE->

The atmosphere is ripe for new developments, and with the Sun and Mercury the only planets operating from Aquarius at the moment, there’s a kind of outlaw vibe is present in what ever undertakings you choose to engage in. Following a highly volatile, though equally stimulating Mercury – Uranus square that transpired a day before Mercury entered Aquarius, an explosion of inspiration or ideas that precipitated last week can now be applied forward and gain some traction. Humanitarian enterprises will hold particular appeal.

Saturn – Neptune has a much milder influence, lending itself to longer range perspectives. Two years ago when Saturn squared Neptune, there was a more contentious atmosphere. Saturn could not attain the security it desires in the evasive ambience that presided, while Neptune may have realized it’s dream or vision was untenable within the realm of worldly commitments or concerns. Now there is a far more amenable and supportive alliance between them, and over this week and into next month (and again in June and November, as this aspect reoccurs,) it’s possible to attain an ideal by defining it, and speaking to it. In doing so there is incredible potential for manifesting a vision into tangible expression over the course of this year. Success comes where inspiration guides your course, and by taking small steps towards it consistently. Intuition can now offer insight into how long range issues can be resolved, and compassionate awareness will see you through to the realization of your goals. 

Extended weekly forecast with aspects available HERE->

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

Long range and professional objectives may come in to focus over the coming few months and a group or organization you work with may hold the key to realizing a cherished dream. Intuition about a crucial career move holds a significant message for your future, this plays out between now and November. Success comes where you trust your innerguidancr implicitly, but a confrontation later in the week spells disaster if you attempt to disregard changes you simply cannot control. Romance is highlighted, especially where you are able to expand your horizons through your connection to someone.  

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

An unexpected development impacting love or money ushers in welcomed news – perhaps even a windfall. Attention turns to professional development and here you benefit from a more experimental approach. Doing new things or at least finding new ways to do old things is paramount to success and comes easier for you now than at other times. Consult with elders or those who may have wisdom to share with you from within your social circle. Tradition has an appeal to you. A secret emerges, and once that genie is out of the bottle you can’t put it back! This has intense outcomes. Process and move on. 

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

Your orientation is future directed and you are discovering new ways to reach your destination, intended or not. Make the most of this vitalizing week to express your feelings of affection for someone you care about – Friday into Saturday is an especially favorable moment to reach out of your comfort zone and try something different. Your partner leads you into new and exotic territory, if you are ready to take the plunge. A financial matter that has been both concerning and prominent since the beginning of the year continues to prove challenging. A critical turning point at the end of the week could see you cutting ties. 

CANCER June 21 – July 22

A partnership holds the potential to stabilize this week, though this is an ongoing storyline that won’t run it’s course until November. Connecting with your dreams and aspirations from within the relationship will bring you closer than you have ever imagined possible. Separation occurs where acceptance and compassion are in short supply. A financial prospect, especially a joint agreement, comes clear this week. You have opportunities over the coming months to secure a deal or lucrative contract if you are willing to challenge convention and do things your own way.       

LEO July 23 – August 22

A partner is keen on expressing their point of view and this could entail you must entertain perspectives you might not usually. An exciting romantic dynamic precipitates next weekend, making it the perfect moment to try out something different if not completely exotic. A sympathetic understanding between yourself and your coworkers can go a long way to make a difficult project or assignment more creative and enjoyable. This will be especially useful towards the end of the week when aggro forces make the workspace especially volatile.  

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

Where love relationships may have been problematic and disappointing over the past several years, you are hitting a new stride and have an easier time defining what you seek which brings you at least half way closer to getting there. Story lines that play out between now and November (with a crucial transition occurring in late March) reinforce your desire for commitment and the long term attainment of a cherished dream regarding love. A breakthrough is possible towards the end of the week. Your relationship to your body is also a top priority and a new approach is required in your handling of the day to day.        

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Romance is in the air for Libra, though it seems maintaining a degree of independence, while respecting your partner’s need for the same, is the key ingredient to creating a lasting alliance. Staying simpatico with those in your domestic environs will go a long way towards mitigating challenges that recently seemed insurmountable. Well, after Friday, anyway, as another showdown is on the horizon. A contentious issue you promised to resolve last April reemerges, and this time has to be dealt with in the here and now. It may be time to walk away from family members who have been obstinate.

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

It’s time to try something different in regard to your living arrangement Scorp. The long transit of Mars in your house of “House” last year likely turned up a lot of dead wood and showed you where a way of life has come to an end. From Monday (also circle the New Moon, February 4th,) you may revisit these insights and feel prepared to turn that next page. A creative project is a high priority and an agreement you make in this period has the potential to see it manifest. Same holds true in a romantic relationship, and between now and November dreams may equally come true in your love life. This is more likely to succeed if you avoid detonation later this week. Take it easy!

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22 – Dec 21

A work from home business can be established productively now, particularly where you work within the healing arts or inspire others to live at their personal best. Romance is exciting next weekend – you make a great impression where you are able to express your most authentic and even out there self. A project or course involving communications, the web or publishing can preoccupy you over the coming weeks and months. Between now and May you are especially inclined to try out new methods of getting your message across. Not only will this stoke curiosity and interest in you, but will also make you more effective.  

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19 

There are conflicting influences this week for Cap, on one hand you feel leisurely and sympathetic, but on the other hand may also be quite agitated and ready to give ‘em hell! How this plays out personally depends on your natural temperament, and early Capricorn is a bit more immune to the storm brewing. Some of this will tie back to how successful (or not) you have been since late last April in bringing a personal objective or enterprise to fruition. A contentious situation at home can have you revisit this and spur you to action quite dramatically. With Venus in your sign from next weekend, it does get better soon!    

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

Renewal is the theme of the season for you, Aquarius, and your objectives become clearer by the day, which can only improve your output, should you desire. You might find it just as pleasurable to wile your hours in drifting and daydreams, and you are likely to find some interesting inspiration there, possibly even hatch up a unique and lucrative new way to make money. The social ambience is compelling and you could really click with someone at a party or event next weekend, give it a try! There is also a really contentious episode brewing beneath the surface, so leave your fight face at home.      

PISCES February 19 – March 20

Overall it’s a very positive week for you, and career advancement is likely a really exciting topic right now. An opportunity to for professional gains that come with lucrative incentives are possible, especially where you have been driven to achieve something and have worked towards it. By the end of the week a stormy and volatile mix of influences could swiftly change the game, if not your whole M.O. especially if you feel you are being gypped out of your fair share. A harmonious alignment between Neptune and Saturn settles your soul, and the combination of remaining sympathetic and seeing the bigger picture works wonders to get you through a testing circumstance.   

Weekly Forecast 1/20 – 26

Following a demanding but hopefully rewarding Capricorn season, the ambience lightens considerably this week with the ingress of the Sun into Aquarius (Jan. 20) followed by Mercury on the 24th. Matters that have seemed insurmountable now fade into the background, and having crossed the gauntlet, something more interesting and hopefully exciting lies on the other side. As soon Sun crosses into Aquarius, however, an eclipse triggers substantive though not blatantly obvious developments, most likely quite unexpectedly!

Leo Lunar Eclipse!!!

The Leo Lunar eclipse occurs overnight Sunday, January 21st, providing the major punctuation mark for the week, and signaling the culmination of a journey begun during August 2017. Think back to what you undertook during that period, or where your life path may have shifted trajectory, probably in a most  unanticipated direction. More crucial developments that advanced the storyline occurred approximately a year ago, and then over last Summer, and these will also offer clues as to where this is headed. With destiny very much guiding the process there may have been times you felt life was unravelling at your fingertips or that you lacked control, but hopefully in retrospect the circumstances you currently find yourself in have made the tumult of the last 18 months worthwhile!  

This particular Lunation is one of the more potent this year, due to it’s close proximity to the Nodal Axis, and activates two highly significant metaphysical images: the 5 of Swords Tarot card as well as the Sabian Symbol for 0’ Leo, “Blood Rushes To A Man’s Head As His Vital Energies Are Mobilized Under The Spur Of Ambition” indicating the push out of the comfort of the womb (Cancer) into a visible, perhaps even public, position where one is called upon to externalize (or from Leo dramatize) something that had been gestating within, symbolized as the birth of ego. 

The 5 of Swords governs the first decan of Aquarius, which the Sun enters mere hours before the eclipse, and signifies relinquishing the fear of defeat, to confront and accept one’s fear in order to let it go. It’s likely that fear is bound to doubt that a successful expression of ego (or personal creativity) is even possible. The axis of your chart affected from Aquarius – Leo points to where this inhibition lies (0’ Aquarius) with the Eclipse (0’ Leo) pushing you towards a destined outcome through which you must confront this aspect of yourself and find a way to integrate courage and conviction. Consider events that occurred around Halloween of last year, when the North Node transited the eclipse degree. Was there something you were thinking of trying to initiate, and what made you hesitate? 

Fixed Star Altair is in close proximity as well, from 1’ 46” Aquarius, which when combined with the Sun is described as “…a bold and determined individual… to have a high regard for independent and decisive action…” (1) thus amplifying the themes of bravery that resonate during this compelling Lunation. By relinquishing fear, the eagle can take flight, leading on to “public honor, notoriety and favor from superiors… great and sudden yet ephemeral wealth…” (2).

Very positive aspects this week facilitate the best possible outcomes. Venus links with Jupiter in optimistic and expansive Sagittarius, and both are on the receiving end of the pioneering initiative of Mars in Aries. Following the eclipse late Sunday into early Monday, the Leo Full Moon forms a grand trine to all of these, signaling a bold new frontier is being crossed as all the pieces of the puzzle click into place. By the end of the week, Saturn and Neptune begin to combine from Capricorn to Pisces, stimulating the potential to bring a dream into reality, an obtuse fantasy into focus. This influence prevails through February 10th, with the closest alignment occurring right at the turn of the month.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

You may find yourself running hot and cold this week. Romantic and creative prospects look fantastic, but obstacles that feel insurmountable at the same time. You want to pull the trigger, but something is holding you back. Putting in a little overtime and completing a project, especially if long overdue, will boost your self esteem immeasurably. A commitment you made last Spring comes back into frame and you question if you have what it takes to pull this one off. Well, do you?

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

You are trying on and trying out new ways of doing things, and this has the most apparent affect on your most private and personal life. Be conscientious about evasive behavior in the early days of the week, the ambience is ripe for serious misunderstandings to occur. You still benefit from a behind the scenes approach, and if someone is working against you this will likely come to the surface over the coming weeks. Recharging your batteries is crucial, next month places you front and center. 

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

A partnership continues to stimulate passion and pleasure. A loved one, even if at some distance, provides you with enduring happiness. Be wary at the beginning of the week, though, as something too good to be true likely is. If expectations get the better of you, you may confront a disappointment. Mid week could see you feeling a bit squirrelly, climbing up the walls with boredom or anxiety. From there you are far more in your element, curiosity is aroused and you find yourself in compelling company.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

Some of the friction in a key relationship begins to absolve, and attention now turns to financial matters, with a stark emphasis between yours – theirs – ours seeking resolution. Had you been waiting for the word on a loan, settlement or grant, negotiations likely culminate over the coming weeks. Be particularly attuned to developments in the early part of the week, as this is an advantageous time during which to break a bad habit regarding spending and saving.      

LEO July 23 – August 22

Something comes home for you in a big way this week, Leo. A vision you have had for your life and worked towards for many Moons comes to head over the Eclipse in your sign this weekend as you put the finishing touches on something very close to your heart. It is possible a relationship that has been in and out of frame also culminates during this or the coming weeks. Whether a door opens or closes, know that fate is guiding you to the the right person, place and thing, however it might feel right now.  

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

This is a really effective period in which to let go of bad habits and feelings of unworthiness or self doubt. An exorcism is possible through which you may finally relinquish debilitating insecurities that have hindered your ability to claim the life you want and deserve. In order to do this you have to acknowledge your perceived imperfections and accept yourself exactly the way you are, and either do something about it or choose to be ok with it. True love lies on the other side of the rainbow, if you still believe.       

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Love affairs have no doubt brought their share of sparkle and surprise, especially over the last year, and one final eclipse illuminating this part of your chart brings a new development – perhaps the realization that you are possibly oh-so-over-it. What ever occurs over the next month (February 4th begins a whole new chapter), has a “meant to be” air about it. You are still seeking substance, and a place to put down your roots, as recent realizations may have compelled dramatic turns of events. It gets easier over the turn of the month to find a place to call home.  

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

Dynamic culminations occur for your professionally and financially in this phase, your willingness to put in the extra hours shines fortuitously, earning you a favorable reputation. An agreement or negotiation you enter into has the potential to put a creative venture into motion between now and February 10th. Instincts and intuition are strong around this one and tempering any sense of urgency with a pragmatic and patient approach can get you very far and closer to your dreams than you ever imagined.

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22 – Dec 21

Some of the financial tensions ease off this week, making for a more amenable ambience for you socially. You have to potential to release bad habits around your earnings and assets which will make you more productive over time. Exciting ideas are culminating between you and your crew, or perhaps a romance is taking off in a big way. A tendency towards over indulgence can definitely overwhelm your sense of proportion, and it serves you to be wary what’s on offer in the earlier part of the week.    

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19 

Some friction still seems inevitable, but remaining philosophical and open hearted in this fertile phase serves you well and promotes a positive outcome for your most cherished ideas or a creative endeavor. Neptune working with your ruler Saturn encourages a more gentle approach to life while enhancing your intuition considerably. You instinctually understand what is, and what is not, worth fighting for. A culminating moment during the Leo Eclipse brings a joint financial or relationship matter to a stunning conclusion.      

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

You begin to come out of your winter hibernation, just in time for some exciting social and/or relationship developments on tap, particularly during the Leo Eclipse this weekend. A partnership that may have been in and out of frame over the past 6 – 12 – 18 months is ready to stage up or come to it’s conclusion. The hands of fate are all over this one, and events around last Halloween were likely telling. Regardless the outcome, if a door closes or one opens, know you are headed in a righteous and appropriate direction.    

PISCES February 19 – March 20

Professionally this is a dynamite period of growth for you, particularly if you remain conscientious about how honestly and authentically you represent yourself at this time. Any effort on your behalf to obfuscate your identity (regardless of the motives to do so) will backfire and pity the fool who tries to deceive you. You have far better prospects where you are able to demonstrate your maturity or by connecting with those from whom you might gain wisdom. You have the potential for self-mastery during this fertile and fruitful period.     

Stargazer Weekly Forecast 1/13 – 19

PRACTICAL THINKING

Mercury from Capricorn makes incredibly productive aspects this week, setting a business endeavor on track and enhancing all negotiations. Look at the 13th, 15th and 19th for the most significant developments. Mid week is especially crucial, as Mercury transits the degree of the recent Capricorn Eclipse (January 5th) and an enterprise is discussed in critical detail. Something emerges from Tuesday into Wednesday that enables forward movement on whatever was initiated last weekend. The eclipse opened a portal of potential and this week Mercury will articulate the goals and how to accomplish them. 

Some of this is going to be super harsh and demanding since Saturn and Pluto are involved. It could be time to pay the piper! At it’s best, while the current climate is severe, it provides an opportunity to resolve serious long range issues by confronting them head on. An important objective can also be clarified. A detached disposition is helpful here, as well as a willingness to sacrifice what is inessential. Neptune sends in a gentle and compassionate love light and some inspiration that softens the intensity of other developments. 

Venus and Mars collaborate from Sagittarius to Aries, so there is an exciting, sexy and enticing ambience underscoring everything else that transpires this week. Imagination, creativity and a sense of adventure – especially where you have never dared to tread – feature largely in these stars. This is obviously occurring in stark contrast to the Mercury vibes, perhaps the negotiation that is materializing is in order to make a fun project or relationship viable. 

Jupiter enters it’s retrograde shadow degree at 14’ Sagittarius this week, and will retrace these steps between now and early November. From now to April 10th, (when the retrograde begins,) the opportunity exists to make a lot of progress, then revise as necessary through the Summer. With this process framed by the Jupiter – Neptune square, inspiration is a guiding light, though there could be some form of deception underscoring an endeavor. Tread carefully and stay strong this week! ✊🏽 

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

You feel passionate, motivated even, though career matters command a lot of your attention and appraisal this week. It’s a great time to make a plan (and stick to it!) while communication is focused on your future. Some steps will be retraced through the Summer, but for the time being you have the potential to build your reputation and upgrade your professional position. Love is on your mind. Reach out and touch someone, even if they are far, far away.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

You are likely planning for the future, and very much aware of the sacrifices or hard work ahead of you required to get there. This is a good week for planning and thinking through an objective that will get you on track. Meanwhile, your inner workings and most private experiences offer insights that enable you to release debilitating habits or beliefs that have been stifling your effectiveness. A close partner is likely the catalyst for this realization.  

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

The social life is dynamic and stimulating, and a partnership seems to be going especially well. Finding someone who shares your hopes and dreams is possible now. Potential is high from this week into next. At the same time, some serious financial appraisals are likely now, particularly where you may rely upon the resources of another. A commitment of some sort is being made, just make sure you can live with what you agree to, as these are binding and definite.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

You may address some heavy topics within your partnership this week, and it’s possible an understanding or accord is reached. An early version of a negotiation gets scrapped for something bigger and better. Something is sacrificed along the way. Professionally this is a brilliant period, and this week into next provide your best potential in a decade to realize a work or career dream that fills your daily life with excitement and creativity.      

LEO July 23 – August 22

Romance and creativity are highlighted, and especially where someone or something might take you to a distant place you will discover exquisite pleasures. Things could be a bit more hard going at work, as there could be conflicts with colleagues, clients or the boss. An assignment you are given could be incredibly detailed if not outright difficult. You get through this by tapping into the inner resources of imagination and enjoying the spicy recreational aspects love is offering you this week. 

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

You are in the process of making a serious commitment where love is concerned. On the other hand if you are looking around and you find yourself alone, it could be time to accept you need to make some changes. On a more personal level this is a very satisfying time and this into next week could see you making substantive progress in your domestic life, perhaps moving or even purchasing a house. Those most familiar to you provide incredible comfort.       

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Domestic reorganization is required, though you can make exceptional progress on longstanding issues if you confront reality and let go of the past. Whatever was is no longer, and this crucial understanding is the way out of an endemic situation. The love light is burning bright and could actually provide the inspiration to make certain changes. From this week into next, you have some of the best prospects in a decade to establish an incredible partnership.   

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

A critical negotiation or contract is in frame this week, and you are likely nailing down the details on this one throughout the week. Something of remarkable significance comes to fruition over the first week of next month, this is the time to handle the details. A financial/professional upswing also holds positive potential and cues this week are only a fragment of what is in store leading into next week’s dynamic eclipse, driving home the ambitions you have nurtured over the last year and a half.

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22 – Dec 21

It’s a phenomenal week for your most personal visions to come to life and fruition, a trend that continues right through next week’s brilliant Lunar Eclipse in Leo. A cherished wish is about to be granted. More concerning are critical financial matters and you might have to face the music where your resources are concerned. Consulting an advisor can be very useful here. In any regard, an important discussion or handling routine paperwork is a requirement this week.    

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19 

You are busy making sure your voice is heard in important negotiations this week, though maintaining a sense of humor keeps things from getting too heavy and benefits your position immeasurably. Events mid week in particular accelerate a narrative you have attempted to put into motion since the Jan. 5 eclipse in your sign. These will get locked down in early February, keep at it. Personal life is stimulating and provides immense satisfaction.   

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

You are dealing with critical matters (and messages) from behind the scenes. Your intuition is off the charts sensitized and it will be easier than ever to read between the lines. Socially this is a highly fruitful period and from this week into next, coalescing into the Full Moon Leo Eclipse next week, which could significantly change your relationship status. A resolution to the events of the prior year and a half come to closure.   

PISCES February 19 – March 20

You have the professional advantage from this week into next as developments, particularly financial ones, give you an edge towards career advancement. You are in the midst of an important agreement with a group or collaborators. Conversations have serious overtones, but this is appropriate since agreements made now will be long lasting and shape the future in big ways. You can weigh your options for now, but by the first week of February, something is written in stone.  

     

Weekly Forecast

THE HERE AND NOW – CAPRICORN SOLAR ECLIPSE

Uranus stations direct at 28’ 36” Aries on the 6th, just following a Partial Solar Eclipse at 15’ Capricorn, which lies right between Saturn and Pluto. Events over the weekend portend dramatic changes, but also signal a requirement to create order out of chaos. Something is put into motion at this time that will culminate in mid July, during the Capricorn Lunar Eclipse, which is in close conjunction to Pluto, as well. Sun conjunct Pluto on Thursday will hold the cathartic themes of the eclipse up throughout the week, a thread that began on New Year’s Day when Sun conjuncted Saturn. Powerful activations and urgency towards complete transformation occurs. 

To succeed in this phase, grit and determination are required to work towards an important goal (associated with the area of your chart Capricorn rules). Any superfluous elements of one’s life will have to be released now to carry out an agenda that supports the future growth that will be realized at the end of the year, when another eclipse in the sign conjuncts Jupiter, assuring success where the work has been made in order to manifest something of genuine significance. Comfort may have to be sacrificed temporarily as a desire to gain power and mastery over some aspect of life becomes overwhelming.

Saturn conjunct the January 5th eclipse degree over the first 10 days of February puts in the bricks and mortar on the event or enterprise that transpires at the time of the eclipse. The opportunities extended and choices made are long term contracts, and very difficult to break out of should you have a change of heart. At the same time, commitments are made from a genuine place and will offer stability for the duration, just make sure you can live with what you agree to during this critical period.

Venus enters Sagittarius early in the week, amplifying the fire element, generating a more playful and optimistic ambience. Finally out of Scorpio, a transit that began last September, the atmosphere is open making for more fruitful exchanges. An Aries Moon transit next weekend ushers in fresh new energy, stimulating the prowess of the imagination, urging Venus, Mars and Jupiter to come up with a better solution, perhaps to what Capricorn has in mind. Mercury in Capricorn requires a practical approach towards dealing with the issues at hand, and squares off with Mars mid week. This is contentious within itself, and can indicate argumentation and extreme mental tension and frustration. 

As the closing square in the Mercury – Mars cycle, this ties back to an agenda initiated back around September 16th, 2017, (6’ Virgo) which now enters a period of culmination and conclusion. To the extent this has been a successful enterprise, you may now reap a harvest of some sort, otherwise this transit likely triggers a desire to either abandon this project or take swift and decisive action to actualize the original plan. A new directive is established in mid June from 19’ Cancer, when the cycle renews in close conjunction to the North Node.  

Jupiter square Neptune (14’ Sagittarius/Pisces) midweek brings a whole other dynamic into the frame, most likely attaching to some form of escapism, which while enticing, is probably the worst possible route to take right now. (More analysis on this aspect appears on the 2019 forecast.) The current atmosphere holds challenges, but also stimulates an incredibly productive period in which to make progress on long standing issues. By next weekend, shifts will occur that enable more pleasurable experiences. For now, heed the call to action that is required of you to make substantive and lasting changes in the here and now. 

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

You are like a bear cub coming out of hibernation, aroused to the new possibilities that lie before you and exuding a wiley and provocative energy. Up front, you have professional matters to attend to. What arises now is set into stone next month, though if you have been working towards this outcome for a long while, you are likely to be happy with the results. Watch your words mid week, you could easily offend precisely the people you need to help you up the ladder of success. The Moon in your sign from next weekend gets your mojo back on track, while the later days of the week may be a bit more subdued. 

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

You continue a period of gestation and metamorphosis over the coming weeks (and year) particularly with your ruling planet nestling into your area of transformation from Monday. A meaningful conversation with a close friend, spouse or partner early in the week stimulates a healing process, and from there you likely seek some private time for inner exploration. Future objectives are also prominent and between now and mid February, you can refine an idea and see it take off when Mars enters your sign on Valentines Day. Saturday’s eclipse points you in the right direction. 

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

Partnership may take on hues of magical serendipity, or is it in your head? It’s possible a relationship can take you to the next level in your career, but tread carefully as things may not exactly be what they seem. Later in the month and into early February you stand to make gains professionally, and the eclipse on the 5th holds clues as to what this means for you. Outside assistance (financial or otherwise) plays a substantial role in your success story. Indications on the 10th are also significant, and you may be putting something big into motion around this time involving joint finance or making an investment.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

Your key relationships continue to be prominent, with Saturday’s Solar Eclipse providing a watershed moment and stimulating rapid developments, perhaps a destined meeting. Mercury’s transit enhances this by augmenting open lines of communication over the next three weeks. A business merger can be sorted now, though a highly contentious vibration mid week can put you at odds with someone you associate with professionally. Work prospects continue to thrive and opportunities for assignments that have a creative touch, or potentially working from home offer prosperity. Health also gets a boost and a new wellness program can be highly successful over the coming month.      

LEO July 23 – August 22

Pleasurable influences continue to flow and there is fantastic potential for meeting appealing individuals and within your creative or artistic endeavors. Work, health and productivity are of equal significance, with the Solar Eclipse providing an opportunity to get a contract for a long term assignment on solid footing. Negotiations play out through early February. If a health matter has been difficult to pin down, you are determined to get to the bottom of it now. Equally, if someone whom you work with has been difficult, there could be a confrontational moment that shifts the dynamics of the relationship.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

Dual influences preside, though first and foremost your love life seems to be in focus, as the eclipse on Saturday opens the door to a romantic alliance that radiates with hues of destiny. You may learn of a pregnancy or otherwise be “birthing” a creative project over the next six months. Intimate and personal matters get a boost from Venus and domestic issues fall to the wayside replaced by harmonious conditions in your residence. This is a good month to attend to an early Spring cleaning, and a redecoration project or general sprucing up of your house of flat will go well now. Decorative pieces in deep purple can restore harmonious conditions to your house or flat.     

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

Things get moving in your love life after several months of hiatus or indecision. Social life is bustling with energy and your perfect match can come flying out of the woodwork quite unexpectedly. Day to day exchanges are pleasurable, and a night class or creative project can provide mutual enjoyment. Personal and residential matters also require major attention, and deep feelings are likely aroused over the weekend. It’s time to take control of your circumstances and release programming attached to your past and family in particular. Do what suits you best, even if you need to cut a few corners in the meanwhile to make it happen.   

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

Venus leaves your sign after an extended transit that began last September. Despite what ever good fortune you may have encountered as a result, you are likely pleased to get your edge back. Financial prosperity comes into view now, with several very advantageous prospects on tap over the coming month. The Eclipse on Saturday highlights your voice, written and spoken word. The efforts of the past year you have made to gain influence regarding a matter connected to learning, communication or broadcasting your message will suddenly shift forward. A project you begin now (or by mid February) has long term implications. Thursday also offers a significant development. 

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22 – Dec 21

Saturday’s eclipse could be a financial reckoning for you. It’s time to get back to basics and cut out expenses that are not serving your long term best interest. Thursday is a great day to make a plan you can stick to. If you have been looking to boost your resources or revenue, the next three weeks are ideal for holding the negotiations that will offer prosperity. Venus in your sign from the beginning of the week sweetens the deal, making you feel light hearted and drawing favorable influences to you. Watch matters with a family member or in regard to your house or flat. There could be a plumbing issue you overlook, which could cost you in the future.    

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19 

Mercury transits your sign for the next three weeks, ensuring communication is effective and that you are clearly stating your goals and establishing your agenda for the year. Mid week could be a bit cantankerous, there could be a confrontation of some sort, particularly with a family member or in your domestic scene. Liberation is brewing on the home front. By March you’ll see the difference. An eclipse in your sign this weekend, the first of three this year, sets an important personal agenda into motion. You lock in the details early next month. This is a real pivot, you relinquish the past and are moving forward with incredible assurance. 

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

The tone shifts considerably this week, and after many months that emphasized your profession and reputation, a more amenable social ambience prevails. A lot continues to percolate behind the scenes meanwhile, and you’ll likely require periods of solitude to reflect or meditate on highly personal matters. The Eclipse on Saturday holds major indications for this, with another significant development and breakthrough on queue Thursday. Let caution prevail in all financial dealings over the coming weeks, as a beguiling Neptune influence signals deceptive influences may be at work.   

PISCES February 19 – March 20

Venus from Scorpio trines Chiron in your sign, stimulating incredibly pleasurable awareness of how far you have come since late September. Self acceptance has played a critical role in this and has enabled healing and the release of significant pain. From Monday your public profile and reputation are favorably enhanced over the coming month, though be wary of coming off too smug, as any gains you make here can disappear just as swiftly if you seem too full of yourself. Inspiration is a guiding force when you overcome the ego gratification of success, and positive outcomes are assured if you stay in the here and now. Socially this is a vibrant time, you connect with passionate and influential people.

Palpable changes are noticeable from Day 1, with Mars having moved into Aries on New Years Eve, infusing the atmosphere with a fiery ambience unknown to the zodiac since mid March 2018, when Mars left Sagittarius. Mars is finally at home, and from Aries can direct itself into the kinds of activities it genuinely desires, and with an enthusiasm and energy level it has been deprived of for several months. Venus in Sagittarius joins Jupiter from January 7th, further amplifying the fire element, opening up to new experiences and frontiers. 

~GRAND FIRE TRINE ~

fire trine

From the 17th – 22nd, Venus, Mars and Jupiter are in lock step, as Venus conjuncts Jupiter and Mars trines both from Aries, with a Leo Moon filling out the Grand Fire trine. Excitement is palpable in the New Year, and January calls for action and initiative, the outward expression of affection, all of which is guided by optimism for a highly positive outcome. Spring comes early this year. 

Underscoring all this is the first of three squares that will be formed between Jupiter and Neptune on the 13th, plus or minus 3 days on either side. This one is more beguiling, adding confusion, but also inspiration into the mix. The issue here is getting duped, especially with all the enthusiasm the Fire Trine is generating. It’s easy to see what you want to see and not what’s really there and get carried away by extremes. It could also be a passing fancy, like a day dream, so tap the vision, as intuition yields some very esoteric insights, just remind yourself constantly it’s fantasy and illusion viewed through the opaque filter of Neptune. 

Anchoring all of this simultaneously is a Capricorn stellium including Sun, Mercury, Saturn and Pluto, which makes it highly unlikely anything will get taken too far off course. The Capricorn Solar Eclipse on the 6th will set the tone – conjuncting Saturn and Pluto – for the year. The current astrology indicates a conflict between the hot Fire element and cold Capricorn planets, but there’s also a balance here. At it’s best this can be a very productive atmosphere where passion (Fire) has the tools (Earth) to turn an idea or inspiration into something tangible.

Mercury will be quite critical in this phase, conjuncting both Saturn then Pluto. Moving into Aquarius on the 24th, joining the Sun, which enters on the 20th, the tone lightens considerably. The ambience over the last week of the month is incredibly future focused. Sun and Mercury conjunct on the 28th, and new objectives may be formed. What is put into motion at this time will be the predominant theme in day to day activities through May 21st, when the next Sun – Mercury cycle begins. A unique and innovative approach guides the movement of the next four months. Technology or innovation likely holds a significant role in enterprises that are started now.

MONTHLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

Mars in your sign infuses you with excitement and reawakens you to possibilities that likely sidetracked in 2018. Your enthusiasm is back in a big way, and enhanced by Venus and Jupiter in Sagittarius, the possibilities are limitless. From the 17th – 23rd in particular, you have the conviction and optimistic mindset necessary to go after what you want. Professional obligations also have your attention, and you get news around the 6th that you have been waiting for. If you don’t like what you hear, heed the information and get back to the drawing board. 

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

You have the potential over the coming weeks to make a deep psychological inquiry and understand your inner workings in ways you had previously never been able to. This process unfolds gently, mores than at other times, particularly in the middle of the month. It might be that you simply confide to someone you share an intimate connection with, your partner or spouse, for instance. Financial assistance is possible on the 22nd, though you are as well off to help someone else. Generosity can be it’s own reward. 

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

This is socially a very exciting period, and a love relationship can flourish with someone you meet at a social event, through friends or even online. Mid month is especially favored, and someone from another culture could be especially appealing to you. The 22nd is dynamite for connecting with someone who expands your horizons while also sharing your hopes and dreams. Take everything with a grain of salt, especially in regard to your profession, things are not precisely what they seem.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

Eclipse action rocks your me – you or me and you axis this month, indicating significant changes to your relationship status, fated meetings occur. Cancers who realize a relationship has run it’s course may also decide it’s time to move on, though it could be six more months before you are really ready to cut the cord. Professionally you are on fire and a plumb work assignment could fall in your lap. From the 17th – 23rd you make incredible progress. The 20th is a bit more demanding. You may consider if you have what is required.      

LEO July 23 – August 22

This is a highly enthusiastic time for you, as love, pleasure, creativity and children are all such a source of joy for you. The 17th – 23rd are especially favorable for vacationing with the one(s) you love. Obligations at work could provide an obstacle here, particularly around the 20th. An assignment that needs to be completed could temporarily delay your plans. A focus on partnerships emerges towards the end of the month, and a conversation around the 28th clarifies things, especially in a business relationship or negotiation.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

It’s likely to be a more introspective period for you, Virgo. The current phase is very much a metamorphosis for you, though you are drawing incredible support and satisfaction from your most personal and even domestic life that eases your transformation. Mid month is advantageous for nurturing these contacts. Be wary of over idealizing your situation, especially within a partnership. An eclipse on the 6th could remind you just how much you love someone, or pull a new contender into your orbit.   

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

A relationship intensifies this month, particularly from the 17th to 22nd, you might meet someone in the most casual of settings, or a have wonderful conversation with someone to whom you are already connected. A gentler atmosphere prevails following the darker more sensitized mood that has carried over since last fall, lightening your perspective.  Domestic matters could be a bit more contentious, especially around the 10th or 20th. An eclipse on the 6th sends a signal that it’s time to take flight.  

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

A promotion could be in the works for you, one with a very lucrative upturn for you where you are willing to put in the work. It looks as though you enjoy what you are doing immensely, so this should not present and issue. Good fortune shines from mid month and especially on the 22nd. Action taken on a professional objective pays off this Summer. An emphasis towards where and how you live comes in towards the end of the month. A very valuable conversation on the 28th opens a new door. 

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22 – Dec 21

What an exciting month you have in store! Impulsive Mars enters your area of True Romance, recreation and pleasure, linking up with lovely Venus and lucky Jupiter in your sign. Can it get any better? The only mistake would be to think that things will remain this way indefinitely, make the most of opportunities you have. There is a financial accent, and you could be on the receiving end of not so stellar news. An eclipse on the 6th is a highly defining moment. Make cuts where they need to be made.   

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19 

While it suits you to remain strong in your convictions and use the forces at hand to achieve your ends, coming off too obstinate won’t sit so well with others, and you could lose the assistance and moral support of those who are more than willing to help you. A strong emphasis on your personal sphere, perhaps even a contentious energy at home, may see you reconsidering your domestic commitments. The Jan. 6 eclipse is cathartic, and after years of waiting, everything changes all at once.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

This is going to be a lively period for you socially, and even if you still have a case of the bah humbugs, mid month is exceptional for getting out there to mix and mingle with new people. While in the midst of your day to day you could strike up a fascinating love connection. Attached Aquarius should make an effort to make a small trip with their sweetheart. Meanwhile much transpires behind the scenes and the 6th could dredge up a lot of memories. Take some time for yourself. 

PISCES February 19 – March 20

You’re after it big time this month Pisces, working towards a big dream and making huge strides in your profession. It could be you have large expenditures, subsidizing your own company expenses or starting a business right now, but these pay off soon enough. By mid month and particularly around the 22nd you could see swift results for your endeavors. The later weeks of January turn the gaze inward, and an insight on the 28th could trigger a spiritual revelation. 

     

2019 Stargazer Forecast

2019 OVERVIEW:

There are several differences between 2018 and 2019, most notably last year was about modification and closure as demonstrated by the processes expressed by Venus and Mars retrograde. New beginnings are featured more prominently this year, as circumstances that were merely tentative in 2018 are now beginning to take root. Uranus tested out Taurus, but went back to Aries, needing one more jolt of energy in preparation to carry out the mission that lie ahead. Uranus will find the tasks of Taurus slow going, which is not really it’s style, but is willing to take on if these are predicated on a personal initiative. From March 6th, the deal is sealed with Uranus remaining in Taurus through April 2026. Chiron tried out Aries on the other hand, but probably found the ambience a bit to scalding, and not yet ready to embrace it’s healing propensity in such an intensified and dynamic environment, retreated to the cooling waters of Pisces. Chiron will take up residence in Aries from February 18th through 2027.

All retrogrades represent unfinished business in the areas in which they occur, especially when they straddle two separate signs. The lesson of the previous sign hasn’t fully been integrated yet and through this lens Venus had more to learn about equanimity before it could embrace the passion and depth of Scorpio, while Mars required a better strategy before it could innovate an agenda and move it forward, and went back to the drawing board in Capricorn in order to come up with one. This year, having assimilated the lessons of the past, progress is made and gaining traction comes far more easily. 

Another set of influences will be of extreme significance this year: the aspects of Jupiter square Neptune and of Saturn sextile Neptune. It’s an interesting change of guard, as last year saw the trine of Jupiter to Neptune and two years ago prior (2016) the square between Saturn to Neptune. Now there is a convergence, with slow moving, inspirational Neptune continuing to be the pivot upon which the current storylines intersect. Jupiter square Neptune has a way of potentially bringing out the worst characteristics of both planets, with Jupiter exacerbating Neptune’s fantasy (or delusion) to ever greater proportion, while Neptune convinces Jupiter it’s way out of reach ideas are actually tenable. Put that way, maybe it’s not the worst thing ever? Nonetheless, there is the potential to utterly over estimate a situation, project, individual or group and meet with utter disappointment when inflated expectations fall flat. 

Saturn meanwhile is combining productively with Neptune, and enables the possibility of bringing a visionary matter into reality. This can’t undo the above testimony completely, but does amplify the probability of something very special coming into being this year, as these three collaborate. It’s also notable that all three planets are in the signs of their natural rulership, and thus most effective in their expression. In order to make this work, Saturn will shrewdly cut off some of the excesses Jupiter will likely throw into the mix. 

What is most fascinating about the process at work now is the timing, as these aspects occur simultaneously. The first set occurs in January when Jupiter squares Neptune during the second week of the month. Over the last 10 days of January, Saturn makes the first sextile to Neptune, likely to organize and consolidate whatever was initiated a few weeks earlier. The second set occurs in tandem precisely from June 15th, though the duration is slightly different, the Jupiter transit is shorter, with Neptune going retrograde on June 22nd. 

This kind of synchronicity is rarely seen, and points to something really astonishing taking place in 2019. During the June transit, Jupiter and Saturn are retrograde, and a result has been achieved, but reassessing the situation is crucial at this point. Maybe something didn’t completely work out the first time but it’s worth another go or a change of plan? The final word comes down in the Fall, with Jupiter square Neptune in late September and Saturn putting in the final girders in the second week of November. It’s a process that lasts all year, but yields an extraordinary outcome. Food for thought, anyway….

MERCURY RETROGRADE CYCLES

The Mercury retrograde cycles in 2019 impact the Water signs, so expect your Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces friends (or if you are one of these signs) to be a bit more squirrly this year. If not a water sign yourself, look at the Water trinity in your chart and be aware that these areas (which tend to feed into one another) could be the cause for delays and vexations. Also keep in mind that these are your learning houses for the year. You simply have some lessons and tools to hone associated with the themes of the trine where it lands in your chart. If houses 1 – 5 – 9 are involved, you will be more personally impacted. Self expression will undergo substantial experimentation and reorganization. Houses 2 – 6 – 10 impact money, work and profession. Your career and status undergoes change but attention paid to these lessons will yield success in the end. Houses 3 – 7 – 11 affect community life and you will likely lose and gain new social contacts. People from the past reappear this year. With houses 4 – 8 – 12 hosting the retrograde, psychological and personal issues are center stage. Expect to be withdrawn for periods over the year while you attend to private matters. 

Mercury retrograde dates occur in March (Pisces), July – August (Cancer), and November (Scorpio).

OTHER NOTABLES:

MARS CONJUNCT URANUS February 13th

Mars meets up with Uranus just one more time before Uranus bids adieu, the last of such conjunctions that occur from Aries for 80 years. You get one more shot at something you have tried to begin, innovate or liberate yourself from since April 2011 (the first Mars – Uranus conjunction in Aries), or even May 2010 (the initial ingress of Uranus into Aries), so take your chance, roll your dice and make the thing happen. Look to to position of 29’ Aries in your chart – this is where you are positioned to see an explosive or unexpected development. 

VENUS CONJUNCT MARS August 25th

As this cycle renews, love contracts can either be established, or a fresh period for those seeking contact opens the door to the possibility for a new connection. Having shed the detritus of the previous cycle (which began October 5th, 2017) the learnings, particularly those during the prior retrograde cycles of both planets in 2018, are revealed opening the heart to thrilling new experiences. The house placement reveals where you will most likely find someone who can bring such a relationship into your life, or if coupled, the tone and themes of the partnership for the next two years. 4’ Virgo is featured and is the area of your chart effected. 

JUPITER TRINE URANUS December 13 (3’ Cap/Taurus)

On the surface, this would be an explosive and expansive aspect, but formed between Earth signs has a far more muted quality. The material world and financial markets are influenced in particular, with several people making positive strides in their earnings and savings over this period. This aspect only occurs once, so make the most of it. Innovative methods of generating revenue are featured and technological advances are the most likely route by which this will occur. 

ECLIPSE CYCLE – THE NODAL AXIS

The Nodal Axis rests on Cancer (North Node) and Capricorn (South Node). The evolutionary directive to be developed between now and July 2020 involves nurturing creativity, attending to the more personal aspects of life, usually represented by the home and development of ones’ soul. South Node in Capricorn indicates debilitation to attempting to over-structure one’s existence. Cancer is free flowing, and lives in the moment, whereas Capricorn seeks to strategize and build something up slowly and deliberately. 

Currently, success will more likely be found through acting through intuition and emotion rather than trying to plan everything out and stick to a rigid agenda. Major transits in Capricorn include Pluto to South Node in the first week of April, Saturn to South Node over the first two weeks of July, and Jupiter to South Node in the early part of January 2020. As the South Node works on these planets, it strips them of elements of their nature that are no longer effective or relevant, not the most comfortable process, but essential to growth.     

The Eclipses act as the trigger for these developments, and pushes towards rapid, if unexpected, evolutionary advancement. During eclipse periods life changes swiftly, sometimes as thought thee carpet is being pulled out from under you, leaving you adrift momentarily while the course is adjusted to the appropriate direction you are meant to be traveling. These can represent periods of crisis, but in hindsight were necessary, as you find yourself in the right place at the right time a ways down the road. 

Four eclipses punctuate 2019, the first falling on January 6th, a Solar Eclipse (New Moon) in Capricorn. This particular eclipse features conjunctions to Saturn and Pluto, making it quite stark – a moment of reckoning and catharsis. Neptune is in favorable alinement, hopefully softening the ambience through compassionate awareness. The second is a Total Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon) in Leo on January 22nd. This closes the book on the prominent themes that have been in development since May 2017. A culmination occurs within the major undertakings that have been worked towards since that time.

The second set of eclipses occurs 6 months later – a Total Solar Eclipse occurs in Cancer on July 2nd, which has no major aspects. On July 16th, a Partial Lunar Eclipse occurs in Capricorn in very tight conjunction to Pluto, stimulating another powerhouse moment for transformation. A final Solar Eclipse in Capricorn on December 26th conjuncts Jupiter, generating a highly beneficial ambience within matters that have otherwise been concerning. There is likely some kind of good fortune that emerges for hard work undertaken over the prior two years.

During these rather dynamic periods, there can be a tendency to over respond, or try to take control of a situation and put things back in order. Really these are “Let go and let God” moments, and you are best advised to absolve yourself from feelings of responsibility you may experience to guide the outcome of the events that are occurring around you. 

In moments of stress or disorientation, go into yourself and find your center, releasing any sense of urgency you might be feeling. The only thing you ultimately have control over is yourself. Let it go.  

2019

2019 HOROSCOPE BY SIGN:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

You begin the year in a powerhouse fashion – Mars in your sign arouses your pioneer spirit and you feel prepared to take on the world again. Strong alinements in January to Jupiter from Venus and Mars in your sign set you up for success over the coming year. There are potent career developments in 2019, but success will only come if you can relinquish outmoded ideas about your profession. A meaningful reconsideration transpires between May and September. One path comes to an end, but a new one will open up soon enough. Events in late December reveal a brilliant new opportunity for you. Late April into May is another significant time for Aries when your creativity guides an exciting outcome. 

Uranus departs your sign in March, taking the edge off. You feel more focused. June provides challenges as your domestic circumstances undergo drastic reorganization. Enjoy creativity, a love affair or a leisurely trip in late July as Mars and Jupiter combine effortlessly to create pure pleasure. Partnership is highlighted in the second half of September, though there will be some obstacles present if you seek to make a long term commitment. Mercury retrogrades impact your personal life. You will find a periodic need to withdraw in order to deal with family or private matters. This is a positive year in which to seek therapy if you have considered it in the past. Meditation will also provide a productive outlet for your imagination and help you define things too esoteric to put into words.   

Make the most of this year and opportunities it brings your way. There are a few skirmishes, but in the end you will prevail. Next year features a 6 month transit of Mars through your sign (due to the next retrograde phase approaching in September 2020,) as well as the highly beneficial transit of Jupiter in your 10th house of career and profession. Use 2019 to sort out your domestic situation so you can operate from a place of comfort and stability. Disorder in this area will reduce your effectiveness, and you stand to make extraordinary gains in the near future.  

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

With Uranus in your sign from March, you feel more willing to experiment though this will not likely feel pleasurable initially. By the end of the year you are more likely to have settled into the new order, between now and then the learning curve is a bit steep. Eclipses emphasize the axis of here versus there, and currently the best things are found close to home, the people in your neighborhood and the conversations you have in passing as you go through your day to day routines. Mars in your sign from mid February gets your motor going on a personal project, a trend that lasts through the end of March. 

Investments and shared resources, particularly agreements you enter into with friends need to be regarded with the utmost scrutiny. If someone shows up with some pie in the sky scheme, walk away. These are highly unlikely to deliver as presented and the prospect of failure highly outweighs that of potential success. Venus in your sign from mid May highlights pleasure, and you’ll be quite content in your own skin or sharing your time with a lover. Late July into August features a charged home environment, a lot is going on in your residence, perhaps you are renovating or redecorating. September is highly satisfying, a creative project or love relationship is thoroughly enjoyable. From mid month a work assignment commands your attention, but features an artistic dimension that appeals to you.   

Autumn months bring your key committed relationships into focus, though a Mercury retrograde phase in November could find you reconsidering these, or connecting with people from the past in order to tie up loose ends. The second half and into December the atmosphere is both contentious and passionate between you and your better half, or if seeking a partnership, you likely become quite adamant. December 4th holds an enticing development, and travel with your spouse or lover will provide you with memories to cherish. 

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

There are strong financial influences this year, and while you are guided to do your best to earn your own keep it looks as though you also benefit from or are relying upon the resources of someone else. You will find the support of another, particularly an intimate partner, goes far in enabling you to reach your professional objectives. Generous Jupiter resides in your house of partnership, and if you have not yet connected with your heart mate, you will likely discover someone who will open your life to compelling new experiences and expand your horizons, while those attached can expect the same within their current relationship. 

Things get off to a great start in January, when enticing angles from Venus and Mars in Aries connect with Jupiter, indicating a you share your dreams and hopes with this person, or finding someone with partnership potential through a group of friends, perhaps at a social event or even online. Mars in your sign through April into May invigorates you to pursue personal goals while also adding some spicy passion to the mix. Someone is highly attracted to your wit and intellect, and this person fits like a glove. You seek to share affection with someone who reflects your ideals. 

The issue here is one of perception, as the Jupiter – Neptune squares can equally indicate you are being swept off your feet by an idealized vision of someone rather than the reality of a situation. Any relationship you have now likely requires there be a fantasy element to it, just be certain this is a fantasy you are sharing with your partner and not to yourself. If you can manage this, a love relationship can really take off from mid September through October, when Venus and Mars activate your sector of True Romance. November 23rd is perfect for a wedding or commitment ceremony. 

CANCER June 21 – July 22

You are in one the most dynamic phases you are likely to experience in nearly a 20 year period right now, with the North Node activating incredible growth for you – even if it’s not incredibly comfortable in the present moment, you will likely look back on yourself in a year or two and barely recognize the person you currently are today. The eclipse cycles that occur in January and July will be the most potent for transformation, offering developments, particularly in your closest relationships, that change the trajectory of your life completely.

Pluto is deeply entwined in the narrative of the eclipses associated with your partner (Capricorn) on January 6th and July 16th. (The energy of the eclipses resonates far beyond those dates.) This indicates that big changes are taking place in your relationships, that there could be a power struggle, or you could be getting much, much closer, practically merging souls. (Pluto rules the area of pleasure and romance in your chart, so it’s likely the intensity you are experiencing is actually quite appealing.) Another way through is the Saturn – Neptune sextile, which harmonizes you and your spouse through travel, a shared academic or broadcasting endeavor. Something you have dreamed of and yearned for can be actualized through a formal commitment, though it might not even be a romantic relationship, but someone who you simply partner with to achieve something of significance. 

You are at your most powerful over the Summer, when dual transits of Venus and Mars affect your sign. Mars in Cancer May 16 – July 1 will not be the most comfortable period for you, but will give you the courage and conviction to pursue your aims with determination and passion. The Mercury retrograde period during July occurs in your sign. You may have to stand down momentarily and reconsider your approach. A fortuitously timed transit of Venus, also in Cancer, could just see you relaxing after a hard working period, taking a Summer siesta. Decembers’ Solar Eclipse in Capricorn (partnership house) conjuncts Jupiter, ushering in a wonderful period of growth and expansion for both of you.       

LEO July 23 – August 22

You likely feel the edge has come off since the end of last year and feel more in charge of your destiny with the Nodes out of your sign. It’s great timing with Jupiter from Sagittarius inspiring incredible growth for you this year, perhaps through creative activities, sports and recreation or even a new child. The year begins on a high note with the exciting passage of Mars through Aries, which could see you on the road having a grand adventure. Exciting aspects made mid January indicate that love lies on a distant horizon and it’s likely you are traveling with your spouse or lover or have an enticing experience while abroad. 

From mid February, professional matters are emphasized while Mars transits the area of your chart connected to reputation and your public persona. This is further highlighted long term when Uranus moves into this part of your chart in early March. Over the coming years, you will seek a more independent or innovate approach in your profession, perhaps going into business for yourself. Events in December will likely enable this to happen, between now and then you will be experimenting and exploring your options. 

The transit of Mars through your sign from July into August will give you the passion and conviction to pursue your goals. Your powers of persuasion are enhanced when Venus joins in through August. Use caution July 11th, when you could come into conflict with an authority figure, even the law. July 25th, on the other hand, spells out a great opportunity. November 23rd also desires a big fat star, when Venus combines with Jupiter in your love and pleasure sector, a once in 12 years event. Events in December – Jupiter trine Uranus and the Capricorn Eclipse on the 26th – can grant you the autonomy you seek in your career. The choices and work you take on from March onwards will grant you incredible success at this time.  

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

Fresh winds are blowing Virgo, although it could take you a moment to adjust to them, and a great deal of excitement, as well as a very significant love relationship, are in store for you during 2019. Saturn and Neptune collaborate between your areas of romance and serious relationships throughout the year, enabling you to make a commitment now that taps into the romantic vision you have held for years regarding true love. The harsh disappointments you have likely experienced, and particularly the events that occurred in 2016, are long behind you. It’s time to move forward, and the eclipses on January 6th, July 16th and December 26th could all produce fated occurrences. 

Someone you rely upon for money could be giving you trouble at the onset of the year, but this is a feature that by March will no longer present an issue. Uranus in Taurus will give you an upbeat vibration and make you less rigid in the way in which you deal with the world. Early Virgo experiences this first, but by 2026 all of you will be *tapped* by this electrifying and liberating force. You likely feel like trying things differently, and express yourself new ways. From late August all the way through September you are extraordinarily powerful, and can go after your goals with extraordinary conviction. The dates of September 9th and 11th are especially potent for reaching out to your dreams and making them come true. 

As a Virgo you are particularly susceptible to the retrograde phases of Mercury and in 2019 these strongly affect your social life and connections. The retrograde period in March will have a specific affect on your close relationship and could bring someone from the past back into your orbit. March 17th and 20th in particular may find you reconsidering a prior choice. Stationing on Neptune, Mercury is conjunct this delicate point for close to two weeks. Let intuition guide you. A dream or de ja vous experience may inspire you to seek out a lost love to see if you can rekindle the spark. The eclipse on December 26th seals the deal on love. With Jupiter now in your house of pleasure, love can really take off now! 

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

The first few months of the year bring heat and intensity to a new or existing relationship. Particularly around February 13th, an unanticipated and electrifying connection could be made that completely astonishes you. To the extent you have been seeking freedom over the past several years, you may unexpectedly break off a commitment in order to pursue your objectives independently. From March, this up/down and back and fourth climate dissipates and you experience a more settled quality in your love life. Late April into May is the best period in which to establish a love relationship, with special punctuation marks occurring on the 5th of April and October 15th. Mid September through early October is also very favorable. 

Professional matters are likely to consume the majority of your time and attention in 2019. If over the past few years you have felt you sacrificed yourself in order to maintain domestic peace and personal relationships, you’ll likely decide this is the year you want to dedicate yourself to getting ahead in some way, either reaching towards a career milestone or a personal goal. The eclipses on January 22nd and July 2nd hold the potential to flip the script for you, a huge development could send you on a whole new trajectory in a flash. Your family or those closest to you may not be thrilled about these developments and attempt to block you, but you have to make up your mind for yourself here and chose to take the opportunities extended while they are there, and swiftly.  

Your profile is rising from mid May through July, though there is a competitive atmosphere in your profession, you rise to the occasion by remaining upbeat and maintaining a sense of humor. Mercury retrograde between July 20 – August 1 could feature a detour. In August you celebrate a victory with friends. The Autumn belongs to you anyway, but this year especially with Mars transiting your sign from October 4 – November 19th. Be wary of vanity, regardless how successful you have been this year, as it won’t come off favorably. Media in particular can be a really positive and profitable enterprise for you. Your ideas are met with favor with January and July being stand out months for incredible growth. Working with others offers the most beneficial outcome.  

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

It’s not the most harmonious year overall, as a very rambunctious and fiery atmosphere will test you, though you will find these challenges can be overcome and will help you to develop into a more well rounded person. What this leads you to are very positive financial and professional indications, and success is assured if you stay the course. Personal relationships are enhanced meanwhile, and a love relationship that has been elusive (perhaps for several years,) may finally stabilize. You’ll have to navigate a circuitous path, but will eventually reach an important milestone in your love life. Pay close attention to dreams in late March and early April as they will reveal your hearts’ true desire. 

Uranus in Taurus will have it’s own say in this, and someone you meet, (or perhaps already know,)  sends electrifying currents through you that keep you up all night, intoxicated with excitement. This can also have a highly destabilizing quality and relationships can spark up and smoke out quickly. You got a taste of this last year, but from March, this will be an ongoing feature of your chart for many years. For a relationship to last, it needs to remain vital and offer a degree of freedom. This will come down to trust, and for Scorpio, this kind of loose connection could make it difficult to muster. Neptune also plays a role, as the romantic vision you have sought after gets anchored by Saturn. It’s possible by the end of the year to have something very special, though unusual, (by normal standards,) occur in your love life.

The year begins in a hard working phase. You are likely compensated for your efforts, which sweetens the deal, but don’t lose sight of the bigger picture and get seduced by dollars and cents. Choose assignments that will elevate your status and bring you closer to your true aspirations. It pays off later. If you manage, July and August see you in high demand as your profile rises. You have to guard your reputation well over the first couple weeks of July as Mercury retrogrades. There could be a detour or bad press, so keep your ambitious activities under wraps for the time being. August returns you to favor and by November 23rd, you’ll see your ships come in. 

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22 – Dec 21

This could easily go down as one of your best years on record, or at least in a long while, with not only Jupiter in your sign, but several positive Mars fire sign transits amplifying your potential for growth and success. One caveat, however, (of course) with Jupiter square Neptune there is the potential to undo what could be a lot of good for you. This would come in the shape of allowing your life to devolve into one of the 1960’s drug party scenes from Absolutely Fabulous, if you get the picture. Funny to watch, not so much the reality of out-patient treatment. Don’t get blindsided by temptations. You got this Sag, I believe in you! 

The year gets off to a great start, as a tense and introspective period quickly gives way to a bold and rambunctious transit of Mars in Aries. Venus arrives in your sign on the 7th, making January a highly satisfying and pleasurable period for you. Perhaps someone special has caught your eye and you are in the midst of a highly enticing love affair. Creativity is also stimulated and mid month features a chain of aspects between Venus – Mars – Jupiter that can only be described as SPECTACULAR!!! If you are still looking to come out of your shell and find someone to play with, Mars and Uranus have a really special surprise for you on February 13th.  

July and August are also incredible, though Jupiter will be retrograde through August 11th, from there it’s smooth sailing, especially if you are traveling or involved in academia or publishing. July 25th is stunning, as is August 9th. You can make a great impression on people at a distance. November 23rd is one of the best days of the whole year, as Venus and Jupiter link up in your sign, make a wish, because it will come true. You deserve it! 2020 features a significant financial influence, so use this one to enjoy yourself as much as possible and live your hearts desire. Your personal life also will require some attention this year during the Mercury retrograde phases.  

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19 

The way you think and the words you use are highlighted this year, as will be your spouse or a committed relationship. The hands of destiny are guiding you, and what might seem at times as raw bad luck is truly meant to bring you to your higher purpose and quite possibly the love of your life. Saturn as your ruler is making a significant aspect to Neptune throughout the year, and a book, podcast, music or video project you’ve been angling to get off the ground can finally see the light of day. Forget the past and what may have felt like failure. Everything you know now is a result of that process. It’s time to get inspired again and move forward.

Saturn is also chasing Pluto in your sign, but will retrograde on April 30th, just 3 degrees shy of reaching the conjunction, which will have to wait until January 5th, 2020. When these two obstinate forces meet, there will be a palpable shift in global consciousness which you have the unique potential to have a very personal effect upon. This depends on you, your involvement in your community (or ability to reach a broad audience) where you see the future of humanity headed, and only of course if you choose to. Capricorn holds a lot of power now, the power to steer the ship, and that is a lot of responsibility to bear. Guess what though? You are the only one capable of doing so, and the world needs you right now. South Node will force you to shed some baggage, and eliminate what is unessential (assuming Pluto left anything,) but for this too, you have plenty of strength to handle.

This doesn’t mean you don’t get to have a personal life, and you’ll find your relationship, or interest in relationships, is growing. Fate is playing a role in the matter and particularly in January and July (though it can happen anytime) a connection that radiates with an aura of destiny could emerge and shake up your life completely. Coupled with the electrifying transit of Uranus in the area of True Romance starting in March, your romantic life is full of exciting surprises. Finally, if you have been seeking to move or change a residential situation in order to have more independence, an incredible development on February 13th could be your ticket out of Dodge. 

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

Following the quagmire you lived through in 2018, this one is easy breezy, featuring some really great moments with friends and in relationships, your social life is buzzy and exciting. You’ll notice a palpable difference from day one, as the pace of day to day life becomes more brisk. If you have been more withdrawn over the prior weeks, you will get a huge boost of energy to get out there again, perhaps take a course or start a writing project. Curiosity will be aroused. A string of aspects mid month is very stimulating. Take invitations and attend events. You’ll meet some interesting people and maybe even spark a fun flirtation. A chance meeting around February 13th could provide you with a short lived but highly provocative experience. 

From March your ruling planet will enter Taurus, which is a slow going sign and not really a comfortable placement for you. It’s likely you’ll seek to transform your living situation in some way and to eradicate yourself from a circumstance that has become stagnant, possibly leaving your home, city or even country. Towards the end of the year you will get a strong intuition about this and will likely be ready to make a big move. April into May is your creative peak, and the spoken or written word holds particular appeal. A theater presentation (even if you are only attending) can be very pleasurable and open you up to new perspectives you may have not considered. Think twice about romantic relationships you might enter into during the last week of April. All that glitters…

A strong relationship emphasis comes in during July and August, with really sparkling moments between you and a potential or existing partner on July 25th and August 9th. This person shares your ideals and this connection will be a signifiant feature of the attraction. The July 31st New Moon is a major punctuation mark. Professionally things take off in October, though a Mercury retrograde period one the first 3 weeks of November could curtail your agenda temporarily. Mars gives you the passion and confidence to pursue your goals wholeheartedly through New Years. 

PISCES February 19 – March 20

The eclipses influence your social life, though you are just as likely to see certain relationships you have outgrown come to an end at this time. It’s more likely a new love relationship develops, perhaps quite suddenly and unexpectedly, with fated connotations that stimulate a sense of destiny. Other Pisces will become pregnant and others will “birth” incredible creative projects this year. From mid May through the end of July, you reach your highest potential for such endeavors, with the July 2nd eclipse providing a major punctuation mark. June 13th and July 18th are also exceptional for art, romance and pleasure.

Jupiter is amplifying your desire to succeed, at least on your own terms, and it’s also possible to turn a few dreams into reality in 2019. The outcome of this will come down to remaining realistic about your own abilities and to avoid at all cost getting conned out of money to pay advisors, coaches and other “gurus” who promise the world by inflating your expectations, but ultimately can’t make you feel confident if you can’t find confidence within yourself. You don’t need to spend thousands to go on a spiritual retreat to be spiritual, either. Simply find a quiet place and pray or meditate. Saturn is highly instrumental here, as you’ll be feeling more down to earth (if not a little pinned down) and taking things methodically, one step at a time. 

From May an intriguing transit begins, one that will stimulate you to seek freedom, on your own terms, while also arousing an unbridled desire for sexual liberation. This endures beyond the end of the year into early next Spring, but peaks in the second half of June. Daily life is also set to become more interesting, and curiosity will have you asking questions and perhaps taking a course or starting a new project. A comic book, podcast, video project or writing could be satisfying and reveal dimensions of your creativity you did not expect. 

 

     

Weekly Forecast 11/25 – 12/1

WEEKLY FORECAST:
Powerful developments occur this week, with some really great news coming in over the first few days that can propel life forward in unforeseen ways. Despite the vexations of Mercury retrograde, it’s backwards trajectory provides a highly fortuitous circumstance to develop. The triple conjunction of Sun – Mercury and Jupiter in Sagittarius from Monday into Tuesday offers a glimpse of what the future has to offer, and ensures that confidence, optimism and imagination are steering the ship over the coming year. A conversation around these dates sets the stage fortuitously, and though some details need to get ironed out first, a very positive outcome precipitates on December 17th, when Mercury retransmits this degree. (Coupled with other really constructive aspects around the same date, there is the potential for far reaching success on the horizon!) Look to the placement of 3-4’ Sagittarius in your chart to examine where this beneficial energy will personally touch your life.

Mars will sextile Saturn on Tuesday as well, generating a more stable undercurrent and advancing an agenda that was set into motion on or around April 26th, during the conjunction phase at 21’ Capricorn. Where progress on this endeavor has likely stagnated (due to the Mars retro phase over the Summer,) there are signals that something is moving forward and this is a fruitful date to make an effort on behalf of this enterprise.

Venus opposes Uranus while both square the Nodal Axis on Friday. Where Venus has been expressing uncertainty regarding an alliance, there could be a sudden change of heart or a swift decision that transforms circumstances unexpectedly. Someone from the past may reemerge out of the blue, and if so it’s likely this circumstance still requires karmic release before you can reorient yourself to the future. It might even just be something or someone is on your mind, and if so, this is a signal that it’s time to accept a chapter has ended, particularly if a sense of nostalgia is present.

Mercury re-enters Scorpio at the end of the week, and thought becomes submerged in the realms of emotions and psyche. Through December 12th, an inner dialogue occurs through which you will likely seek to understand your motivations and the hidden or taboo elements of a situation. Meditation and the mystical arts are positive conduits for self awareness and healing (Mercury trine Chiron in Pisces). Intuition and empathy are also stimulated, and if you are particularly sensitized, this is an appropriate time to withdraw and regroup until you feel prepared to act with greater conviction.
