The upcoming Mercury retrograde cycle is especially potent, as it stimulates an ongoing discussion or negotiation with Saturn and Pluto – conjunct January 12th 2020 at 22′ Capricorn. What is being worked through now has very significant implications not only for the upcoming Sun/Mercury cycle, but also sets the stage for many developments over the course of next year.
Between January 10th and 13th, 2020, the Sun, Mercury, Saturn and Pluto all conjunct in Capricorn, signaling a momentous surge of energy and initiation where ~22′ Cap resides in your chart. It would appear that the events, conversations and choices that are made over these coming two months clear the decks and set the stage for what will emerge at this critical point at the dawn of 2020.
From Scorpio, Mercury is incredibly subjective. Over the course of the pre-retro shadow/retrograde/post-retro shadow phases, you may notice substantial shifts in personal consciousness about a particular topic. One day things appear a certain way, then a short time later, completely different, even though superficially nothing has changed.
What has occurred is an internal reorientation to the situation, and how you feel about something or someone is likely to go through a large degree of transition between now and December. An especially useful date to note is October 18th, when information or an insight arrives that indicates the topic of the learning curve revealed during the upcoming cycle.
Putting something into motion on this date is not entirely fruitless, so long as you are prepared to watch this thing completely mutate and evolve into a distinctively different shape between now and December 1st, when Mercury makes its’ third and final transit at 19′ Scorpio. It’s here the pieces really fall into place.
The significance of 19′ Scorpio is that it is the position of the mid retrograde conjunction of Sun – Mercury (November 11th) and thus indicates the primary topic of the resolution being sought after during this phase. At this time, a major piece of the puzzle is revealed and resolution begins to move into frame.
Saturn and Pluto have a strong influence throughout the retro cycle, but are working in a supportive placement to Mercury, suggesting long range and even endemic issues can be resolved between now and New Year through patience, determination and the in-depth analysis required to see them through. Clearing the way for the next cycle in early January (which coincides with a Cancer eclipse in precise opposition) is the critical message – and opportunity- the Universe is dealing right now.

A palpable shift in the atmosphere occurs this week as Venus shifts into Taurus and Mars moves into Cancer. The constellations which were dominated by hot, masculine energies become cooler and take on a more nurturing tone. Venus and Mars link up favorably from Aries to Gemini right before the shift takes place. If a relationship has hit a bump or you’ve simply been to busy to catch up with your partner or love interest, this is the perfect moment to carve out some time for a leisurely get together. If you’ve been waiting to make a move and ask someone out, this is also a favorable transit to take action on that impulse.
Mercury is a bit behind the pack in Taurus, and makes highly productive aspects to Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. Objectives connected to business are reinforced and negotiations are favored. Momentum builds on enterprises that were established in the beginning of the year. Towards the end of the week, Mercury harmonizes the Nodal Axis and an effortless transition from the past to the future occurs. You can utilize the skills you already possess to build towards fruitful outcomes in the upcoming months.
This is all underscored positively by a brilliant culmination during the Full Moon in Scorpio at the end of the week. A double emphasis on endings and transformation occurs at this Lunation, highlighting the themes of release and renewal. The Full Moon represents a moment of vitalizing emotional richness, a feeling of completion. Venus conjunct to Uranus from Taurus at the same time signals extraordinary new horizons associated with prosperity and abundance.
The more you are willing to let go of, the more free you are to follow these fresh impulses. With the Scorpio – Taurus polarity highlighted, the themes of death, rebirth and reconstruction are activated. This a very auspicious moment in which to evaluate what matters most to you and reconfigure the balance between what you have and what you share – security and resources can go through a genuine metamorphosis if you are willing to open yourself to trust.
Consider this in the context of not only material or financial resources but also that of love and its’ expression through commitment to someone. It’s just as possible to covet money as it is your own feelings, usually out of self protective instincts. This is the moment to let emotions flow out and towards the one(s) you care for most. Be fearless in that expression! If it’s time to release an intimate attachment, or at least change the rules of engagement, this is encouraged by both the Full Moon and the electrifying and ground breaking Venus – Uranus conjunction. Go for what you want and give it all you’ve got is the message this week.
Uranus looms largely in the May forecast – so expect for the unexpected, especially where matters of security are concerned. Brilliant ideas are hatched under these influences, but the erratic and unpredictable are equally featured and can provide undesired, or at the very least disruptive, developments. Early Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius horoscope factors experience this the most intensively. The 8th (Mercury conjunct Uranus) and the 18th (Venus conjunct Uranus) are potent for initiating new ventures or relationships that have an unconventional or futuristic flavor to them. These cycles last for about a year so pay close attention to what begins around these dates. Expect news about new products or standardization connected to FinTech or Blockchain technologies, payment automation and virtual wallets.
Lunations in Taurus and Scorpio further emphasize resources: from Taurus – what you can do for yourself, or self reliance, and from Scorpio – what you can create and accomplish together. Neither the New or Full Moon are significantly aspected by aspect to other planets or the nodes, so you can work with these how you choose to. With the New Moon (May 4th at 14’ Taurus) you want to plant seeds or begin something associated with the material growth you seek and cultivate your inner confidence.
A Full Moon at 27’ Scorpio on May 18th signals the return on efforts that began in early November of last year. You see signs of fruition for a goal that was established last Autumn and likely features themes of intimate relationships and business partnerships. A catharsis comes complete.
A major breakthrough on the 5th loops back to an enterprise that was established around January 6th 2018, during the conjunction of Mars and Jupiter at 17’ Scorpio. As these two fiery behemoths connect in opposition from Gemini to Sagittarius, massive ideological conflicts can erupt, so try to hang on to a bigger picture world view if Chicken Little comes running down the road. The atmosphere is explosive and incendiary!
On a more personal level you should see turning point or culmination where the initiatives formed early last year are showing signs of success for efforts you have put in. If so – good work! On the other hand, if you realize something isn’t going to come out as you wanted, you have the opportunity to go back to the drawing board or scrap what isn’t working based on what becomes abundantly clear following this critical alignment.
March 20 – April 19
You feel much more in your element this month, just in time to catch up to the marvelous developments on offer professionally. Hard work and an obstacles you overcame earlier this year showed you had grit and place you in a position to boost your earnings now. Hold your most important negotiations, meetings and interviews between the 15th – 17th. By the end of the month news reaches you about a promotion or raise. At the same time, you may seek out unconventional sources of income, since Uranus looms large this month and you are seeking a measure of autonomy where earnings are concerned.
From mid month, domestic matters require attention, and intuition about where and how improvements can be made resonates strongly within you. The more willingly you release the past the easier it is to make room for what is in store. Between now and July there are going to be significant changes in your residential and personal life, some unexpected, though looking back you will see these have been simmering since last Summer.
A quick transit of Mercury boosts your energy level and activities at the moment, and you find it easier to express your ideas and formulate objectives. Your powers of perception and persuasion are especially enhanced from the 15th – 17th. You are far more in your comfort zone while Venus enchants your region of the sky from mid month. Love mojo is strong and gets reinforcing vibes in the later part of May.
A situation can be tense on the 7th, though what you overcome together makes you so much stronger in the end. Emphasis is placed on relationships with the Moon activating the Me – You axis, culminating in a Full Moon in Scorpio on the 18th. You could be making a long term commitment, and if you are seeking to tie the knot this is a fabulous time to do so!
You are still operating from behind the scenes for the most part, coming into your own from the end of the month (specifically on the 21st) when Sun and Mercury link up in your chart, hitting the reset button on your life. All the motivation you have felt to get going on a personal project over the last several weeks finally coalesces with circumstances that make it possible to build some traction where it is has been in short supply.
Finding the right balance between your work and private life is crucial with turning points on the 4th and 18th making clear what habits need development and those which have outlived their shelf life. Intuition runs strong, especially in the middle days of the month. A gut feeling has a lucrative pay off if you are willing to trust your instincts.
Friends and lovers are the emphasis this month and you are likely to enjoy some harmonious times socially or through cultivating your connection with someone who tugs your heart strings. The Full Moon on the 18th is ideal for putting yourself out there, feelings run deep and strong and seek expression. Mars in your sign from mid month gives you energy but also has a confrontational edge to it. Your passionate nature is invigorated, but equally your temper! (This is more abrasive next month, when Mars forms challenging aspects to heavyweights in opposition to your sign from Capricorn.)
You have good indications mid-month to set the record straight with your significant other and reach a mutual understanding. Use this period to mitigate issues that might arise down the road. The 2nd and 9th are highly favorable for negotiating a professional promotion or new position.
The month starts out on a leisurely note, and if you are traveling, teaching or promoting something you are making the most of your stars. By mid – month a shift to professional goals is palpable. You gain through employment, even where a situation seemed insurmountable earlier in the year. The New Moon on the 4th signals a fresh start. Your consistent efforts pay off and a promotion or new position is possible.
You get signals that you want to do something quite different and may take off in an unexpected direction. These could be hard to suppress and you are encouraged to explore your options. Mars moves into a mysterious portion of your chart from mid month. You refuel from behind the scenes, perhaps working on a secret project. Events on the 22nd reveal an exciting new prospect. Your instincts point you in the right direction.
Following the muddles and challenges of the last few months you begin to come into your own. Your inner life has undergone a substantial metamorphosis and there are far more beneficial influences at work that help you spread your wings and reach for the future. You get a taste of what’s in store around the time of the New Moon on the 4th with prospects continuing to brighten throughout the month and into June.
Professionally you get much needed assistance on the 14th. Planning and career development shapes the four months following the Sun – Mercury conjunction on the 21st. Make a plan and take assured steps towards reaching a milestone by your birthday. From mid month a very social atmosphere comes into play and you could find yourself very busy extending and accepting invitations.
There is a strong financial emphasis present this month with benefits coming in through the resources of others who seek to support you. From the 15th you have a special advantage to negotiate for a loan or funding. With Mars reaching the apex of your chart May 15th an through June, you stand to make professional headway as a result. Serendipity prevails over the last two weeks of the month and you find yourself in the right place at the right time to make the most a career opportunity.
Those working in creative arts or fields associated with visionary, esoteric or spiritual topics especially benefit from this influence. Socially the ambience is exciting, and you enjoy sharing activities with a partner or could hit it off with someone while attending an event or party. There could be road blocks on the road to love on the 7th or 9th. A positive attitude and faith in a good outcome helps you navigate any turbulence.
You make peace with the past this month, and in doing so feel new and invigorating winds in your romantic life or in regard to a creative project. A lot of emphasis is placed upon relationships right now, and this is a good time to make your feelings known to someone you are interested in developing an close association with. Events this month could produce unexpected developments, but will equally be invigorating.
By the time of the Full Moon in your sign on the 18th, you can really put past matters to rest. Mars from Cancer generates enthusiasm to move forward as the concerns and obstacles of the prior months swiftly fade away. Set your sights on distant shores or a professional coup this Summer, you have what it takes to make it and auspices are favorable to see a monumental move up the ladder of success.
Passions run high this season and your love life is susceptible to sudden and enticing new avenues of exploration. There is also an emphasis on your private or personal life, especially from mid month. You make some of your best personal progress behind closed doors or in therapeutic environments. Spa and sauna treatments are invigorating and restorative. You can draw the curtain on the past during the Full Moon phase on the 18th.
Where endings and release occur you are making space for new and improved conditions in the second half of the year, notably from August when Jupiter is direct in your sign again. For the time being explore your connections and nurture your commitment. Examine what you can do for others and see what you can learn about yourself in the process. Events on the 7th or 9th reveal where financial matters may still require attention.
It’s a very enjoyable month in store for Cap, kicking off with a highly sensual and alluring New Moon in your arena of pleasure on the 4th. An emphasis on home and personal issues gives way to a far more romantic ambience, with passions running high from mid month especially. Conversations you have between the 15th – 17th are very productive. You can set the record straight and go for exactly what you want by wearing your heart on your sleeve. A turning point in a love affair on the 22nd can open the door to making a significant commitment by the end of the month.
The atmosphere is a bit more contentious in June, so make the most of what’s on tap for May! Work and productivity become accentuated towards the end of the month, making for a very busy period on the job front. Think about where you want to be in September – October as a guideline for what you agree to take on now.
There is a need to get grounded this month and establish security in your home base or personal life. Your inner resources provide assistance and enable the navigation of a transition that could otherwise be somewhat disruptive, at least in terms of what you are used to. A job provides a lucrative upside in the second half of the month, though it could be a demanding and hard working period for you.
Things get more exciting after the 21st, and you’ll seek new avenues for self expression. You gravitate instinctually (and intellectually) to people and circumstances through which you can demonstrate your creative abilities and feel free to finally have some fun. Mid month is optimal for making an important decision about home or family matters. Speaking to the people involved will help you make the right choice.
A strong financial emphasis remains over the early part of the month, with some tense issues in the first week that require attention. From there, a more social ambience takes over. You find joy in the simple pleasures of day to day experiences and unexpected events provide enjoyable moments and a fresh outlook on life. The 15th – 17th are ideal for attending or hosting an event. You may also be involved in a conference or seminar that inspires you to think big.
Tense dynamics at home diminish from the 16th and you begin to seek out more pleasurable and romantic experiences. These tap into the core of your expression and inspiration, as you engage with the depth of your imagination. If you work in the arts this will be a time of momentous and effortless flow of your creativity. Others may experience this through a love relationship or their children. This culminates brilliantly through July – signaling a fresh start is on the way.
This week could be a bit of a clunker, as an upbeat social atmosphere is moderated with continuous reminders revolving around topics of duty and obligation. Mercury is a busy bee, and moods fluctuate from buzzy and optimistic to discouraged or fatalistic. Numerous conversations and correspondence dominate the daily affairs, and the pace is likely to be brisk and exciting!
Mercury from Aries can possess a confrontational tone, and especially when aspecting Saturn and Pluto mid-week, things are likely to get a bit prickly. Not that you should back down from a stand off should one emerge, just be aware that others are equally tense, and perhaps this has nothing to do with you or even the situation in question. If a breaking point has been reached, it could be productive to give something that isn’t working a good heave-ho, just be mindful of your words as contentious vibes promote reckless behavior.
Mercury square the Nodal Axis on Wednesday is an especially pivotal moment and potent for releasing the past effectively. Although a profound sense of nostalgia can accompany this transit, fear or sadness over what is being (or has been) left behind, remain encouraged that something better is coming to take its’ place.Where you feel hindered or uncomfortable – are precisely the circumstances you are meant to walk away from.
Saturn retrogrades on Monday, in an ongoing conjunction with the South Node that lasts through the end of the week. This aspect occurs again over the first two weeks of July, and finally one last time in late September, shortly after Saturn goes direct at 13’ Capricorn. Karmic issues that run deep can be accessed and released now. Return on something that has been worked towards over the last 9 or 18 years is also possible – particularly look at trajectories that were established in mid September of 2013. Under this influence, obsolete structures are dissolved to make room for what is next.
An earthy and sensual New Moon in Taurus at the end of the week underscores this process and stimulates the cultivation of fresh prospects and perspectives. Material matters gain in importance and see beneficial improvements now. Geminate your goals for the next six months under this auspicious influence and see stunning results in November.
March 20 – April 19
You see signs that you have outgrown a professional role, as you come to recognize a significant aspect of your life is coming to an end. While something provides a certainty and sits neatly in your comfort zone, you also are aware that you are capable of more, even (and perhaps especially) where you defy the expectations of others. A reconfiguration of your trajectory between now and September provides a new beginning. July is especially revealing and enables the necessary endings be made to move forward.
Impulses arise from your subconscious realm and you may respond to event this week in unexpected or even unusual ways. There are positive indications in store involving finances and shared assets. You might have an ingenious idea that reconciles an issue between yourself and another where resources are concerned. Instincts about this will be strong. Mid week could produce some challenging reality checks regarding your future, and you may be required to realign your objectives temporarily.
You’ve come so far, but still have a ways to go to actualize your desires surrounding an intimate relationship. Productive conversations with someone close this week offer opportunities to express your longer range goals, and this generates harmony while bringing you closer to someone. Perception and intuition are enhanced right now, consider them allies while you navigate the more difficult terrain. The more you stay tuned into what you really want the better the outcome. Think about winning in the log run if you feel like jumping ship this week.
Intense vibes are present professionally or in your key partnership(s), and major adjustments will be required to deal with what emerges, especially mid week. You could get signals that a relationship has run it’s course, but equally these may just be growing pains indicating a new stage in the evolution of your partnership. Conflict emerges around whether the connection has what it takes to move forward and provide the substance you seek and if something does end its likely because it doesn’t.
Creative yearnings are stimulated along with a desire to spread your wings and expand into new territory. There are obligations that seem to prevent you from doing so and these could produce some vexing moments in which you seek to break away from certain commitments. Scaling back or finding ways to streamline productivity can provide a solution. A new professional chapter begins under the auspices of the Taurus Moon over the weekend. If you feel compelled to strike out in a different direction, trust this impulse.
Financial obligations prevent your free expression this week and could make you take another look at how productive your arrangements are. For the time being you might need to be more flexible while long term trends are still in the process of taking root in your life. Your personal/profession axis is lit up this week and there could be positive news about resources that enable growth in both spheres. The Taurus New Moon gives you a vantage point that stimulates excitement for what the future has in store. What would you like to see take off in your life in the six months.
These could be some prickly moments as you continue to reconcile the demands of your personal and professional obligations. News mid week points you in the direction of the future and towards a career milestone you will likely achieve in July. This one has been in the works for a while, though a strong indication of what you need to release (the past) this week is emphasized. Communication between you and your spouse or partner flows brilliantly, generating optimism and a strong vision for a shared future. The New Moon enhances confidence and trust in your intimate relationship.
You are busy-busy-busy at work and many lucrative assignments are in store if you apply your agility and communication skills to the opportunities on offer. Words get pointed, especially mid week, as tensions between yourself and your colleagues or a transportation issue escalates. A clash of wills is possible here, state your case and move on. A change of mind or attitude adjustment may also be required. The New Moon in Taurus ups the ante on your relationship – are you ready to take this to the next level?
Your happy go lucky attitude hits a glitch when you have to reconcile what you want with what you need, making you re-evaluate your resources. You are still learning to trust and rely on others more, and this level of intimacy can be a bit frightening up front, though you are slowly getting more accustomed to it. You tap the source of pleasure and creativity this week while the Moon transits Aries and links up with Mercury and Venus in your arena of True Romance Thursday into Friday. Tuesday is perfect for expressing your feelings to someone you care for.
There could be some growing pains this week Cap, as you continue to reorient yourself and ongoing evolution to include an important relationship. As a generally independent person, this comes with some modifications to your lifestyle as you learn to accommodate another person in your life. As you relinquish habits that reinforce your autonomy but also exclude the possibility of mutual engagement, appreciate how much you have gain rather than lament over what you might perceive as a loss. You tap the source of love and creation during the New Moon, pleasure is enhanced by your receptivity to give and receive.
Work – life balance needs to be addressed, and time constraints mid week could provide an insight that prompts a change in your mind set that triggers a needed change. The New Moon is pivotal for rearranging your priorities, the changes in your personal life, (which will be ongoing) are emphasized and enable you to make some crucial decisions. You can set yourself up for success now and deflect some of the more unpredictable circumstances that arise in May. Asserting what you want while you establish a root base assures an outcome you can live with.
Follow your heart Pisces. Trying to accommodate or live up to the wishes and desires of others will not take you far right now. There are rich and ripe opportunities for personal development in creativity and love right now. If you lose a relationship or even a few, assure yourself these did not have your best interests in mind. If you find yourself at a crossroads this week, ask yourself “Does this make me feel good?” and if the answer is no – walk away, regardless how comfortable arrangements might be. Intuition is well developed and your best ally. An important conversation regarding a financial/professional matter on Thursday goes well for you. Stand up for what you are worth.
Saturn and South Node meet up this week, dredging up karmic baggage in an icky double whammy. The aspect lasts through the end of the month, at which point Saturn goes retrograde at 20’ 31” Capricorn. The series of events (and the realizations that accompany them) that play out over the coming days offer several indications that something isn’t working, and this is most likely connected to over attachment and obedience to the past or tradition. Exploring fresh impulses and living in the moment is required in order to release that which is no longer serving the attainment of future directives.
In many ways this process resembles the toxic consumption motifs from the No Face storyline in Miyazaki’s animated masterpiece Spirited Away. (Studio Ghibli 2001.) I won’t go into mad detail or analysis here (just watch the film if you haven’t – it is everything ✨) but essentially No Face starts eating anything and everyone to satiate its’ longing for a girl named Sen, who cannot be seduced with material gifts, because her heart is pure. When cured, No Face begins to purge all it has consumed and returns to a natural state, that of a kind and gentle being, when greed has been relinquished.
Contemplate where this allegory could be playing out in your life this week – are you engaging in greed or consumption to mitigate spiritual emptiness? In it’s lowest vibration, the earth element covets, at it’s highest it builds. From Capricorn the theme of power is emphasized. Why you build is as, if not more, important than what right now. Saturn going retrograde appears to retreat to correct and modify the strategy and objectives and resumes direct motion while again in close conjunction to the South Node this September. By then you are finally ready to let go of something that has been weighing down heavily upon you and release a burden or restriction, though this evolutionary process begins now.
Sun conjuncts Uranus in Taurus, on April 22nd, for the first time in the current 84 year Uranus cycle, coming off the tail winds of a pretty dramatic Full Moon. While electrifying, it’s not precisely a Party on Wayne moment, as this could have very destabilizing effects on economic and security issues, and reinforces some of the indications of Saturn – South Node, signaling the birth of a new order. There is a measure of restlessness and urgency towards change. Pay close attention to what you initiate at this time since this cycle plays out over the next year. The area of your chart containing 2’ Taurus is implicated and where you are likely to experience the mutually disruptive and liberating qualities of this influence.
As Mars squares Neptune towards the end of the week, profound feelings of uncertainty may be revealed in situations that are delicate or tenuous. To the extent that Neptune is the projection of an ideal there can be a disappointment if that ideal turns out to be founded on illusion. Mars from Gemini indicates a great deal of skepticism and can easily burst a bubble here, or at least needle insecurities. There can also be new paths for exploration regarding a creative or mystical topic, and even if these seem a bit awkward at the onset, let curiosity guide you for a moment and see where it takes you. This is a testing and pivotal period for something initiated December 7th, (Mars conjunct Neptune – 13’ Pisces) and requires reorientation towards this topic in order to grow and evolve it.
While beguiling at moments, this week has it’s share of high points too. If you feel down in the dumps about something, it’s likely tied to the Saturn – South Node contact. Remind yourself the only way out is through and make an effort to deal with this even if it requires extraordinary patience or even resilience. Mars – Neptune can encourage dissipation in the face of conflict and here it’s also important to recognize that indulgence in altered states is unlikely to solve anything. This is less a time for outcomes than inner exploration and with Pluto also going retrograde this week, the mood is particularly subterranean. But otherwise, Party on Garth.
March 20 – April 19
Career matters recede in importance, while domestic topics take precedence over the months ahead. Thursday offers some clues as to where it’s necessary to draw a line between personal and professional obligations, and emphasizing your inner needs is essential. Financial appraisal and reorganization is required. You are seeking freedom from restrictions and may pursue an interesting or unusual new source of income. Follow your impulses, a big pay off comes at the end of the year for taking an innovative course of action.
You are motivated by some unusual influences this week, and seek to make changes to your appearance or routine. This will be a work in progress for you that culminates in a brilliant new way of life for you in December. A financial reality check towards the end of the week could be in store if you’ve been burning through cash as fast as you have earned it. Thursday is also crucial for realigning your long range goals with reality, at least for now. Just because you can’t get at it now, doesn’t mean you won’t, eventually.
You’ve made concerted efforts towards financial resolution since the beginning of the year, though with progress unlikely through the end of Summer. The next few months are more of a review of how successful these efforts have been. Stumbling blocks towards the end of the week reveal where work is still required, especially if you are beginning to lose confidence in regard to a professional prospect. Socially this remains a vitalizing period and you can find pleasure while developing your relationships.
A situation concerning your close partnership reached some form of critical mass this week. It could be someone you are close to is going through a rough time and you get to play the person they lean on. At the same time they might just need some space to sort out their stuff, in which case give it them. In some cases it might be time to call it quits, or at least temporarily step back to review a situation. In a few months you know where you stand. Positive professional developments provide a nice distraction.
You feel urgency to make a dynamic shift professionally. The desire for autonomy or finding a new way to do things is compelling. Take advantage of the initiative you feel or opportunities presented, especially if they push you out of your comfort zone, as this culminates brilliantly in December if you play your cards correctly. What isn’t working (at least in your favor) is the day to day job or assignments you might rely on, but currently are not enabling your personal progress. A look within and trusting your instincts provides the guidance you need.
You will have to spend the next few months reviewing and relying upon the progress you have managed to make within a love relationship since the beginning of the year. If you find your heart space is being weighted down by junk from the past it’s time to get unstuck. Bad experiences may have left bruises on your soul, and the way through is to rekindle your love light by becoming enamored with enchantment again. Converse with your inner child this week, s/he has advice that can alleviate the pressure you endure.
The fundamental overhaul of your root base, particularly since the beginning of the year, requires integration now. The immense progress you have made is internalized as you identify the endemic and constraining patterns you have managed to release yourself from. Some more gross stuff can come up this week that makes you question if you have really come as far as you thought, and the way out is to hold the view of where you are headed rather than looking back at what was. Confiding in your partner and expressing love is also especially fruitful now.
A way of thinking has outgrown it’s use. Things you learned, possibly very early in life, are preventing you from experiencing bigger and broader perspectives and it’s time to let them go. Between now and your birthday, you have an opportunity to realign your perspective in a more productive and beneficial way. Partnership could feature a dramatic (but exciting) turn of events this week. The more you try to control the situation, the more difficult this one is for you. Work and daily life continue to be full of pleasurable interactions.
You feel positive and outgoing right now and a romantic relationship could really be taking off for you. Being able to confide in someone brings you closer. Nurturing your creative abilities also enhances feelings of happiness and pleasure. Personal matters could be a bit more concerning, as something that has been concealed emerges and signals a turning point in a relationship towards the end of the week. Financials require attention and reworking. The next few months produce a substantial change here, how you feel about yourself and what you believe you deserve plays a huge role in the outcome.
While you have undergone substantive transformation this year, quite likely coming into your own and embracing your personal power, this process remains incomplete, with the next few months providing the opportunity for reclamation. To balance this equation, something requires release – in equal measure – and you get strong indications this week (especially on Thursday,) of precisely what that is. The shock and tribulation that arose in January coalesces in July. The more graciously you accept change now the greater your come up in a few more months.
Socially this is a vibrant period for you, and enticing invitations or outings are in store. One situation that could turn prickly is your love life, especially if you or someone else has not been particularly forthcoming about a dubious financial matter. As you slough off the hindrances of the past, weight lifts from your psyche that has been oppressive. A sharp turn of events in your personal life or at your residence points to new circumstances on the horizon. You might get pushed out of your comfort zone, but ultimately these will serve to liberate you, so go with the flow.
Some relationships are built to last and some just aren’t. You’ll get signals this week that you’ve outgrown certain associations as you come to realize that certain friendships just don’t line up with your future objectives. Parting can be sweet sorrow, and it could be a few months before you fully resolve your endings. A contentious situation can arise with a flat mate or family member, especially if you’ve been too permissive and endured inappropriate conditions, it could be time to lay down some new ground rules. Financials get a boost, meanwhile, and you can add to your earnings if you keep your eye on the prize.
The week is punctuated by a second Full Moon in Libra in opposition to Uranus, which can bring an issue to a swift and unexpected conclusion or turning point. (Even though Uranus is in Taurus, by degree they form the opposition aspect. The Sun will conjunct Uranus early next week.) Jupiter (sextile) and Pluto (square) play supporting roles in this culmination as well, indicating there is assistance to overcome some form of oppression. Uranus provides the major emphasis here, and signals a breakthrough of some sort, even if it doesn’t appear that way at the time.
Conviction resumes as Mercury moves into Aries midweek, following a long foggy period (almost ten weeks) transiting elusive Pisces. Impressions sharpen and it’s easier to express thoughts or assert a position. The meandering loops that infused the prior weeks diminish quickly, accelerating action and progress where things may have been stuck in a holding pattern. Mercury connects to Chiron in the later days of the week, around the time of the Full Moon, and enables self acceptance or a healing conversation to occur.
Momentum continues to build from the weekend when Venus enters Aries and stimulates even greater expression of the fire element (spirit, passion, inspiration). Before doing so, she will connect to Pluto from Pisces, bringing some longer term issues into frame and providing perspective and assistance to their resolution. Venus square Jupiter, meanwhile, is a bit more wiley, so mixed feelings could preside in the early part of the week. On one hand, deeper commitments are being formed but conflict with an overwhelming desire for freedom. These energies build up to the Full Moon on Friday, during which a significant release of pressure occurs, in some cases bringing a situation to an end or at the least requiring complete reorganization.

March 20 – April 19
A relationship can go through some growing pains this week, either escalating to a whole new stage or coming apart at the seams. If the latter, this likely ties back to your evolving and emerging values, and has less to do with the relationship itself. You can derive genuine satisfaction from the culmination of your long range efforts meanwhile, and see prosperity grow from there. Prepare for an unanticipated financial development next week, for better or for worse. It’s time to awake from that long Winter nap. Mercury and then Venus from your sign open doors that had been sealed and move your objectives forward.
You are in for a big development on the work front, either you bite the bullet and quit a situation you find unsatisfying or receive an unexpected assignment or even a promotion. In this kind of astro scape, it’s difficult to predict the outcome, but since this hinges on the very personal headway you are making, you benefit in some regard despite the shape things actually take. There is a lot of contentment and pleasure through your social sphere and a close or intimate relationship. Nurturing your connections helps you to flourish. By the end of the week, energies turn inward, so enjoy the out and about while you can.
You’ve been forced to negotiate and renegotiate your life direction over these prior few months, while topics concerning your significant other or how to get a relationship off the ground have also been a priority. A palpable shift in atmosphere occurs when Mercury enters Aries, providing you with far more satisfying and productive outlets over the coming weeks. If something remains unsaid in your partnership, this is a fantastic period for making an enthusiastic declaration of your intentions and to plan for the future. Professional matters which had taken on a life of their own fall into place effortlessly and to your satisfaction.
You’ve managed to rejuvenate your aspirations and can now reach towards your professional goals with more conviction. An enterprise can take off in the coming weeks, with some especially fortunate developments next month. Don’t fret if the pace at work has slowed down or an assignment isn’t coming together as anticipated. This allows you more time to focus on your own priorities. Sensitivities are pronounced over the Full Moon for you, as an unexpected event at home can trigger some anxiety. Changes long overdue can be made now if you choose to. Partnerships enhance a positive mind set and provide pleasure.
Pure exuberance is possible in the early days of the week, a huge shift away from the more prickly atmosphere that dominated last week. Prospects brighten moving deeper into Spring as your interests become stimulated by far away people and places. As you get your mojo back, you feel more expressive and at ease with yourself. A niggling financial issue which had been concerning over prior weeks gets sorted. Payment for work you have completed assists you. Words could get intense around the Full Moon, and have an impact on your profession or reputation. You could also just be super emotional about a development here, either way, a deluge is on the way.
The relational dynamics continue to coalesce brilliantly, especially in the early part of the week. Personal and domestic matters are also harmonious, though take notice if you get signals to try to make a sudden move. Better opportunities to do so will arise in time and be easier to implement. A financial reappraisal could provide a critical turning point over the Full Moon. Here as well, you may desire too much progress too quickly and make a mistake that can easily been avoided. Those whose resources you rely on come through now, and this enables a more comfortable association that has a beneficial affect on your personal life. A simple conversation changes everything.
Relationships become ever more emphasized, and the Full Moon in your sign could definitely provide a tipping point towards forming a (potentially) unlikely partnership. For all the ups and downs Uranus provided over the last several years, you have also come to terms with your own desire for independence. Assuming you have found someone who can give it to you, while providing the commitment you equally seek, it might just be time to seal the deal. Hard work pays off for you in this phase, and if you are in the process of closing a chapter in your personal life, the initiative you require to move forward is assured.
The intensity over the wistful enticements of romance or your burgeoning creative output slowly fade, (don’t worry, your love mojo stays with you, Neptune is here for a while…) while work assignments and productivity become a more dominant topic over the next few weeks. Use the opportunities presented wisely, as the reputation you establish for yourself (as well as skill sets you are cultivating) bear largely on the success story that advances this Summer. If you can find a mentor you stand to learn a lot, maybe someone makes introductions that lead to more lucrative possibilities down the road. Take a time out during the Full Moon to tune into your inner voice – it has a lot to tell you about what you are ready to let go of.
Your emotional flow is vibrant in the early part of the week as you connect to your hearts desire through a stimulating close encounter of either the romantic or creative kind. Financial matters that have made you fraught with anxiety begin to resolve. Set an attainable goal early in the week, especially if splurging on home luxury items becomes a temptation. You feel more in your element as Mercury and then Venus move into Aries, providing you with more opportunities for self expression and pleasure. A momentous culmination in your social life or among a group of friends over the Full Moon brings an unanticipated, but enlivening twist to the storyline. Enjoy it for what it is, even if it’s not quite what you expected.
You have come a long way over the last year, and so much more even just since this one began. Tangible evidence of this, or at least in regard to your internal perception of where things are at, resonate around the time of the Full Moon at the end of the week. This may feature an unexpected outcome for you, though whatever results are delivered are thrilling and make for an eventful turning point in your professional and personal life mutually. You feel connected to an essential inner harmony that makes it difficult for anything to throw you off your game, (despite what gets thrown your way) and demonstrate impressive dexterity in handling numerous situations graciously.
A long range effort comes to fruition this week, but could have an undermining affect on your personal life. Early Aquarius will feel this most, as Uranus is already applying itself to renovating your root cellar, where others will begin to get indications of what is in store. After a long and drawn out period emphasizing financial matters and organization of resources, you move into a more socially outgoing phase and can enjoy spreading your wings a little and enjoying the company of others. Professional drives are stimulated towards the end of the week, and sharing your vision or ideas with others enhances the probability for success.
You put the finishing touches on a personal situation, and finally see some forward movement where you may have stalled over the last couple months. If you have managed to articulate your vision, notably for how you would choose to express yourself or live your life, you feel prepared for progress. The Full Moon shines a light on your secret world and the things you might only share with those closest to you. While this is illuminating for you personally, you might find exploring new or unfamiliar territory within an intimate relationship to be a source of mutual pleasure or interesting. At the same time, if someone goes somewhere you just aren’t ready to, you are likely to pull back just as fast.
The gears of communication and reality begin to click back into place this week. Following an ethereal, Neptune infused couple of weeks, it’s more or less back to the grind. Venus takes over the mantle of inspiration, combining with Neptune, then later Saturn and Pluto, continuing to give a creative voice to the inspiration that saturated the early days of Spring. Mercury connects to the Nodal Axis Tuesday into Wednesday, illuminating the appropriate path or choices to be taken to reach evolutionary goals for the future. It’s likely past skills or connections assist this passage in some way and enable you to get back on track. An endeavor that began in earnest in late February begins to show signs of growth and progresses more easily now.
Sun square Saturn on the 10th signals a situation has reached it’s breaking point, likely connected to objectives initiated right at New Year (Sun conjunct Saturn 11’ Capricorn January 2nd). Over the weekend Sun squares Pluto, stimulating cathartic, though incredibly challenging or tense dynamics. This one loops back to January 11th, (Sun conjunct Pluto 20’ Capricorn) and here again, certain goals are called into question. While squares can represent moments of extreme crisis, and tend to be maligned as such, they also provide the greatest opportunities for growth. It’s possible to turn a breakdown into a breakthrough, especially in matters where you have been oppressed circumstantially or burdened by past life (or earlier in this life) baggage or programing that is hindering your effectiveness in the here and now. Eliminating rigid structures of dependency, and taking initiative on what you can do independently is the way through.
Jupiter retrogrades from April 10th, and goes direct again on August 11th. For a few months, there could be a bit of a slow down where your biggest growth and farthest reaching experiences are concerned, while you integrate what has developed since last November when the Jupiter -Sagittarius transit began. Consider that Jupiter on one hand enhances that potential for growth in a specific area of your life (specified by the themes or topics of the house it is currently transiting in,) but also indicates that it is through that area you are likely to encounter broader perspectives and possibilities. Distinguish the ways in which Jupiter expands the matters connected to the area being transited, but also where potential growth is possible through the course of activities in that area. If a situation has not yet fulfilled it’s promise, new opportunities (and second chances) arise from the end of Summer.
March 20 – April 19
The distant and far away can be a bit less enticing for you as you continue to focus on your base of operations and matters closer to home. A stormy situation may erupt around a contentious professional situation that’s been simmering. When the dust settles you’ll likely see that confrontation was inevitable and ultimately even productive. A bit of retreat can work wonders for you and provides therapeutic release from some of the more demanding aspects of life, so carve out some personal time for yourself.

Finances could be a topic of contention this week and an argument regarding resources could prompt reconsidering a friendship. At the same time, you could be making a serious commitment to someone or something. Expect some mixed signals, but hold your faith that it will all work out in the end!
Any year that starts with a Solar Eclipse conjunct Saturn is going to feature some pretty heavy themes – from day one, 2019 was slated to be about confronting and resolving long range issues, and finding solutions for the biggest and most difficult obstacles without taking any shortcuts. Saturn emphasizes limitations and restrictions be put into place to really deal with a specific issue without distractions. By excluding anything which is not necessary, it is possible to focus very explicitly on a concerning topic in order to slowly and steadily make concerted progress.
This process can be excruciating but also offers incredible rewards for the efforts made and the tests endured. Genuine and lasting results are possible, and when pressing constrictions are overcome, they are overcome for good. Generally a Saturn hued effort is about having to work hard for something. (Look to the position of Saturn in your natal chart as well as the house it rules for clues.) Where Saturn currently transits your chart is where you have the ability to focus effort with an eye to a specific outcome in mind, usually reorganizing the affairs of that area which require rehabilitation or restructuring. Saturn conjunct to South Node at the end of the month will definitely offer indications of that which is not working and requires complete elimination.
Unlike the strategy and discipline Saturn employs to achieve it’s objectives, Jupiter tends to represent effortless growth and simple enjoyment. Jupiter can also be full of hot air – it’s advantages effusive and elusive, a temporary visitor that enhances perception and the potential of good fortune before moving onto it’s next adventure. Saturn is constricting, but what its discipline enables you to create is made of stone and granite and will endure – for better or worse. Together these planets set the agenda and tone for a 1 – 2 year period, unlike the inner or personal planets which shift signs on a three to six week basis, or the outer, transpersonal planets which spend years and even decades in a particular sign, Jupiter and Saturn exert a special influence.
With both planets going retrograde this month, (Jupiter on the 10th, Saturn on the 29th,) it’s time to see how well the structuring efforts Saturn has made will endure and if Jupiter’s prospects for growth are legit or just phony promises made in the heat of an overly optimistic moment. During their retrograde phases, both will repeat the aspects they made to Neptune in January – Jupiter by square and Saturn by sextile. Late July through the first ten days of August should also be observed with extra consideration, when Saturn moves back to 15’ Capricorn, reactivating the directives of the January 6th Solar Eclipse. The 2019 agenda either comes together or falls apart in order to be reassessed and reorganized at this critical time. By late October/early November, this is one for the history books as a matter is set into stone. Jupiter retrograde examines how well you have expanded your frontiers in the area of your chart impacted, and following a few months of reflection, another chance at growth in that area or a chance to rekindle a missed opportunity.
The other highlights this month include the transits of Venus through Pisces and Mars in Gemini. Mars is a bit lone crusader, making a singular aspect square Neptune at the end of the month, essentially void of course since it’s trine to Pluto on March 19th, with the exception of Lunar aspects. Action oriented activities are likely carried out in solitude as a result, and Mars, doing most of it’s best work independently in most circumstances anyway, is probably cool with this. Collaboration is not a particularly effective vehicle for the time being, and with Gemini presiding, research is favored.
Venus from Pisces assists Mercury, having recently gone direct, in clearing up any lingering misunderstandings that may have arisen during the March retrograde. A softer ambience in which to realize the objectives of your personal Pisces topic (where Pisces lies in your chart) suggests diplomacy and cooperation will yield the best outcomes here. Relationships can be cultivated now, as flowing aspects to Pluto and Saturn make it possible to make lasting commitments to something or someone. Fateful contacts are highlighted when Mercury – Nodes (April 9) and Venus – Nodes (April 14th) interact. It’s easier to let go of the past and move forward under these auspices.

March 20 – April 19
The plot thickens as even more subterranean material comes bubbling up to the surface. It’s an interesting dynamic for your Solar Return month, with equal emphasis placed on the past and future simultaneously. Old business is being wrapped up at the same time you are trying to move forward. Socially you may feel enthusiastic and outgoing, but may discover your playmates are not available for the time being. You can use this time productively by delving into a writing or research project, maybe taking an online course about a topic that piques your curiosity. As for love, it’s all going down behind the scenes, and a steamy encounter on the 10th can arouse hidden fantasies. Be mindful about getting frisky with your boss or a colleague, as actions have consequences and these particular ones affect your reputation. You may find yourself reframing your professional objectives through the Summer. Information comes in between now and then, with a real turning point in July demanding a different approach and perhaps even relocation that steers you towards a whole new enterprise. EXTENDED MONTHLY FORECAST ->
April 20 – May 20
You are quite at your leisure this month, and can particularly enjoy time spent with others, the 10th and 15th are especially nice for socializing. Mars is out of your sign by the beginning of the month, so some of the edge is off, though Uranus provides a certain snap-crackle-pop that is stimulating bordering on aggravating dependent or your disposition. Towards the end of the month you get a sense of what is in store, and April Taurus will get the first taste. If your birthday falls on the 23rd, expect a particularly volatile, but exciting year! By the end of the month, a decidedly introverted mood takes over and you are more likely reflecting on the past. By mid May the atmosphere clears and you feel ready to move forward. Financial matters are also highlighted and you might be in the hot pursuit of money or other resources while a shared or outside source of cash likely diminishes through the late Summer. Focus on what you can do for yourself while you review your commitments to others. EXTENDED MONTHLY FORECAST ->
May 21 – June 20
Mars from your sign gets your mojo going, though you might be on your own for a while while you put a personal plan into motion. With Mercury now moving forward, the confusion and misunderstandings that were pervasive in March quickly recede into the rear view mirror. Professionally this is a great month in which to show off your talents – you’ll be advanced and well compensated for what you bring to the table. It’s also a good phase for finding work you genuinely enjoy or which features an element of self expression. A love relationship continues to guide your course, and events mid month could set you on a whole new trajectory. Your social life picks up towards the end of the month with several opportunities to connect with likeminded people and expand your circle of friends through clubs or events. You could meet a truly kindred spirit on the 23rd who you feel you can really open up too. This is also a good day for letting bygones be bygones in a friendship that may have been through some ups and downs. EXTENDED MONTHLY FORECAST ->
June 21 – July 22
This is a pivotal month for you, as many issues from the very personal to external influences over which you really have no control are all equally highlighted. You do gain clarity about your future direction and if plans to return to school or in relation to a publishing project have been a bit difficult to nail down, you start to see the way through. You continue to tap into a source of personal inspiration and guidance throughout the month that infuses your creative spirit. Travel is highlighted and can provide you with genuine spiritual insights. The gears switch in your professional realm throughout April, and there could be a concerning incident mid month in particular. Only you can decide if you are truly comfortable with the direction in which things are evolving. Expressing your concerns around the 23rd clears the air. A partnership that may have seen it’s shares of ups and downs can settle into more of a groove now. You feel you know where you stand and this provides assurance. The more comfortable you can be with yourself and your choices, the more successful you will be this month. EXTENDED MONTHLY FORECAST ->
July 23 – August 22
Mars activates your social sphere and there could be some exciting events that provide you with opportunities to connect with others. Intellectual pursuits are favored and relationships that feature a more detached quality overall will tend to run more smoothly. Your more personal and intimate life is also enriched this month, and where a mutual financial situation may have gotten gnarly last month, you see circumstances improve. If you have been struggling with payments or getting your fair share in a settlement, matters progress far more smoothly this month. By the end of the month you feel ready to spread your wings and take flight. New horizons beacon and if you have been attending to more private matters, you feel replenished and ready to come out of your shell. The unrelenting demands of your job also begin to diminish and the more of an effort you have put in since January the greater your rewards (and lighter your burden) through the Summer months. A romantic or creative effort could also show signs of slowing down, it’s time to check in and decide if you are really happy with where things are headed. EXTENDED MONTHLY FORECAST ->
August 23 – September 22
If uncertain conditions surrounding your close relationships have sidelined a commitment, you find a far more supportive and loving atmosphere this month in which to cultivate your key partnerships. Mercury rights it’s course and combines it’s efforts with Venus to clear up any misunderstandings with important developments over the first two weeks especially positive for you and your mate. The dates between the 7th – 15th are extraordinarily romantic and you are likely ready to put yourself behind a decision regarding someone who means a lot to you. Saturn and Pluto retrograde diminish the intensity that has been present so far this year with your lover, quite possibly for the better. Professional drives are also activated, though you might not get a lot of support initially. Financial matters improve towards the end of the month as you start to receive assistance from others or get word on a loan or inheritance. The Full Moon in Libra on the 19th culminates a successful negotiation or pay increase for you. EXTENDED MONTHLY FORECAST ->
September 23 – October 23
Daily life gets back on track following a period of uncertainty (most likely regarding your work) that may have had disabled your productivity. The current climate encourages the development of better habits, and releasing those that have a detrimental affect on your well being. A lot of emphasis on partnerships otherwise suggests really potent developments in you key commitment. Someone from another country or at a distance could be prominent. A conversation around April 14th gets the adrenaline flowing – effortless connection and instant rapport is possible. At the same time you may ask yourself if this connection has what it takes to god the distance, in some cases it could be a catalyst for making an important decision about the future. Domestic matters that have been concerning since the beginning of the year recede somewhat in importance. From the end of Summer you will be required to handle any lingering matters. For now it’s best to see how things are falling into place. Lunations feature cues that impact your love life, endings and new beginnings are featured. EXTENDED MONTHLY FORECAST ->
October 24 – November 21
Uncertainty over where your affections lie begin to get clarity, you know where you stand and are ready to let your feelings be known. Venus enhances romantic connection, and especially around the 10th, a wish can come true. The 7th and 13th are ideal for clearing the air of any misunderstandings and making a commitment you can stand by. Planning for the future with someone you care about, brings you closer as you realize you share objectives. Uranus continues to exert a challenging, but liberating influence with some of the bigger themes of this process surfacing around the 23rd. Early Scorpio (October B-day) is most affected. Towards the end of the month you have opportunities to advance at work. Think about how what you do now is actively contributing to the future you want, especially in regard to your professional aspirations. Mars from Gemini could see you a bit withdrawn this month. You undergo a cathartic inner transformation. This also impacts your sexuality and you may discover you do not have an appropriate outlet to express your deepest desires. Awareness of this contributes to your metamorphosis. EXTENDED MONTHLY FORECAST ->
Nov 22 – Dec 21
You continue to tend to your personal life or even family members, and by mid month you definitely have a better grasp on the situation. If a relocation had been postponed, you have a much friendlier climate in which to make desired changes to your living arrangements. The 7th and 13th are especially auspicious for signing a lease or coming to an agreement. From mid month the emphasis shifts to more pleasurable pursuits and a romantic liaison or creative project. Mars from Gemini stimulates passion, but equally contention in a partnership. Jupiter retrograde in your sign from the 10th suggests you are pulling back a bit from the pace you have maintained since last November. Use this time to reflect on where you really want to go next, as second chances emerge from July to break through to new territory. Saturn impacts your financial picture, and you will have to live with what you have managed to accomplish since January. If your resources aren’t being well managed, then you will have the opportunity to restructure your finances from late Summer. Testing the durability of your resources between now and then will make it possible to make better decisions moving forward. EXTENDED MONTHLY FORECAST ->
December 22 – January 19
A second chance to make good on the objectives you set fourth around the New Year comes as you address how well you have (or have not) managed to restructure your lifestyle in favor of the future you seek. Events in July will propel the story line forward in remarkable ways, between now and then examining what is working and what is not is in your better interest. Taking a hard line is not the best strategy, as Neptune combining forces with Saturn indicates a softer and more empathetic approach gets you further. You have numerous opportunities to express your vision effectively and make progress on goals. By the end of the year, all the hard work and sacrifices endured pay off in a big way, just keep chipping away! This is a good time to cultivate new skills and habits that enable a more efficient approach to lifestyle management. With work days getting more hectic over the next six weeks, time management becomes more crucial to maintain balance. Look at how what you are doing now will propel you towards your professional goals, (which you are likely to advance in September – October). The Full Moon on the 19th holds a huge message about where you are headed next. EXTENDED MONTHLY FORECAST ->
January 20 – February 18
Mars from Gemini gets your mojo going, and after a quiet start to the year, you are ready to get moving on your personal objectives. A love relationship may also begin to culminate, and particularly in the aftermath of last year’s tricky retrograde phase impacting your sign, there seem to be brighter prospects on the horizon. Old friendships or colleagues could reemerge on the scene while Jupiter moves backwards in the zodiac, triggering you to take someone up on an offer you may have previously turned down. The financial picture shows signs of improvement this month as well, especially where circumstances were particularly gnarly or a source of income hard to pin down over the prior weeks. Significant reorganization is possible over the first two weeks. Socially the picture brightens towards the end of April. Accept invitations and show off your sweetheart or meet someone new. Art appreciation can be especially stimulating. You could find yourself deeply moved by something you hear on the 23rd. EXTENDED MONTHLY FORECAST ->
February 19 – March 20
The unraveling influences of the Mercury retrograde period begin to dissipate this month, as you start to gain clarity and find the way forward. Venus plays a highly beneficial role in this personal chapter of your story, and over the first three weeks in particular you receive assistance and generally just feel more at ease in your own skin. A conversation you have been putting off can now take place, and the 9th is perfect to clarify your position and realign your perspective with what you want. The more clearly you can envision and articulate your desires, the more likely you are to get them. The 10th can be especially auspicious for reaching a personal milestone. Feelings of love resonate throughout all your undertakings. Professional circumstances are less favorable through July. Examine if the route you have been pursuing is really taking you where you want to be. You get another chance shortly. Attention is focused on personal matters, with the next six weeks optimal for making changes in your residential situation as required. Steer clear of commitments at the end of the month. EXTENDED MONTHLY FORECAST ->
This week has the potential to resemble the last, so if it feels like the cassette is jammed in the tape deck, you are likely not the only one. Pluto and South Node remain in conjunction through Friday, as do Mercury (now direct) and Neptune. The Moon in Pisces from Tuesday into Wednesday brings emotional awareness to the idealism stimulated between Mercury – Neptune and adds even greater receptivity to what seeks articulation. Consider what the ideal looks like – how does it feel and taste? Mercury takes an inspirational cue from Neptune and moves back into alinement with Saturn early next week. From there the course can be set to make this thing real, to transmit divine inspiration into something tangible. Compelling developments in June hold the potential to move a step closer to the outcome you take action upon now, though it’s more likely things really come to fruition in November.
Mars in Gemini encourages the desire to pursue topics that stimulate curiosity and intellectual interests. Mars is especially independent right now, uncompelled by the distractions in the social realm that would normally be expressed during a transit through an Air sign. Mars making no aspects (with the exception of the Moon) from March 19 (Mars trine Pluto) to April 26th (Mars square Neptune), suggests it is quite content to do it’s own thing right now. The house ruled by Mars in your chart is mutually affected and unlikely to see remarkable growth or development, beyond the theoretical or conceptual at least, through the end of April, during that beguiling square to Neptune.
The New Moon in Aries on Friday signals dynamic new beginnings and revitalization. Coming to fruition at the end of the Pluto – South Node conjunction, this transit stimulates a welcome breakthrough and awakening to the new order of things. As pieces gone missing during the recent Mercury retrograde period fall into place, this new storyline comes to life over the coming weeks. For now dexterity is emphasized and helps get things back on track. Self talk is particularly potent now for redirecting focus towards action. Write down something you are motivated to achieve while the New Moon becomes exact in Aries and say it out loud every morning when you wake up for the next two weeks and see where you land during the Full Moon. 🌛
March 20 – April 19
You come back to life in starts and fits – Mars in Gemini is highly conducive for expressing your ideas, though you don’t seem to have an audience here and may continue in a developmental or learning phase for the time being. A classified professional project begins to come together and from next week you could be putting this into motion. An epiphany this week stimulates a significant shift in perspective.
Mars leaves your sign, taking some of the pressure off you to perform. Finances become a priority and this is a good time to put energy towards earning and saving, so long as you are willing to go it on your own for the time being. Relationships with friends go well, and any apprehensions or misunderstandings can be cleared up now. Your associates have insights into an educational goal if you listen.
A professional venture begins to find it’s footing and gain some traction. You possess skills that are appealing to those who can assist you in your endeavors. Mars from your sign enables you to assert yourself productively and make an impact, although you may find you are keeping to yourself a bit over the coming weeks. New connections made during the New Moon enable the development of your aspirations.
A flash of inspiration regarding your career path during the New Moon can stimulate you on a whole new trajectory. Travel or educational plans that had stalled begin to come together. There can be a tendency towards withdrawal over the coming weeks, though as you seek to recharge your batteries. Relinquish an obstinate partner that is keeping you from your potential and regroup.
Financial reappraisal is productive now, and you can start to see the details come together in regard to your pay or a promotion at work. The New Moon signals a desire to strike out towards new frontiers, though obligations on the job could hinder prospects. Socially this is a more active period, and you want to check in with your friends and associates, a breath of fresh air following a hard working phase.
Challenges in relational matters that have been difficult to negotiate over the prior weeks subside. As the lines of communication reopen, new understanding enables a loving atmosphere to prevail. Professional matters take on new urgency, though you don’t seem to get a lot of assistance as you work towards the attainment of your objectives. A willingness to work independently will put the wheels in motion.
A New Moon in your area of partnerships opens the door for exciting developments within relationships. With work and daily life still emphasized, you are likely to see these take off a little later in the month. Numerous projects and assignments keep you busy meanwhile, following a convoluted, if not challenging period of uncertainty. Continue to purge unwanted baggage from the past to get the most out of potent career opportunities.
The lines of communication reopen in your relationship, making it easier to express your hearts desire. You may have only come to term with what you want quite recently, no need to rush! A commitment you make over the coming weeks can stand the test of time. Changes are overdue on the work front and you can make a huge push towards independence at the New Moon. Pieces fall into place over the next few weeks.
Domestic matters get sorted out and improve quickly. Towards the end of the week you can stabilize a situation that has been a topic of ongoing concern. Mars in opposition can generate some friction between you and your better half. Whether this arouses passion or conflict is a strong indicator of where you are at right now in your connection. Look to events around the New Moon for answers.
Life is very active over the coming weeks, with both work and social life vying for your time and attention. Keeping a balance between work and play will make everyone, especially you, happy. An idea comes to fruition as details get hammered out in a negotiation, application or critical conversation later this week. A residential situation can change swiftly within the coming weeks. News on Friday reveals an opportunity.
Creative energy runs high, and you need an outlet for self expression. This might be something you need to work on privately for the time being, though you will derive no less pleasure from efforts made on your own. Financial matters are untangled and improvements are made swiftly over the coming weeks. An exciting new acquaintance emerges with the New Moon. Open your mind to the possibilities.
Mars makes a challenging angle to your sign from Gemini, signaling the necessity for growth in your personal life. It’s not so easy as just letting someone in, as this particular individual will likely barge right through the door, ready or not! This applies equally to flat mates or family members, and aggravating circumstances may have to be contended with. Suss out your money making avenues on the New Moon, you might turn over an unanticipated source of income.
Retrograde Mercury moves back into lockstep with Neptune, making a rare and unusually long conjunction lasting from Monday through Friday. Inspiration and intuition are potent, but the potential for errors in judgement exceptionally high. De ja vous (even connected to past lives or other dimensions) is possible, as is attunement to extra-sensory perception. Tap into the exceptional creative and imaginative potential being illuminated, but hold back on any kind of crucial commitments or decisions. This combination can make for extreme gullibility. From the end of the week, its time to emerge from wonderland and climb out of the murk and treacle. Mercury will be it’s usual nimble self again in a couple more weeks.
Venus joins up with the Pisces gang mid week, adding even more emphasis to an already squishy ambience. Relationships take on transcendental romantic overtones, as feelings of love can saturate to the core level of soul experience. The visionary ability and artistic quality expressed during this time can not be understated, and fortunate connections to Mars in Taurus as well as Saturn in Capricorn can ground these etherial impressions, making it possible to find a tangible outlet for these esoteric and otherworldly impulses. As always with pronounced Pisces/Neptune influences present, be wary of susceptibility to those who might prey on vulnerability. Likewise, if people are sending mixed signals or acting vague, take it at face value rather than make excuses for evasive behaviour.
Over the weekend the Pluto – South Node conjunction locks into place, signaling profound catharsis (look at 23’ Capricorn in your chart) and a significant time in which to eliminate and purge the dead and outworn. There is dual potential – on one hand the karmic implications of an abuse of power comes term now, though alternately the potential for positive manifestation or culmination of events and conditions that precipitated nine years ago during North Node conjunct Pluto 3’ Capricorn November 5 – 21, 2010. Remember with the nodes involved that time lines accelerate and things tend to be a bit turbulent while the hands of destiny steer the ship.
Also look to the house ruled by Pluto (Scorpio) in your chart, as this area could be debilitated or exhibit changes or even transform dramatically at this time. Evolution occurs now from which little will be salvaged afterwards. Let go of what has been outgrown and accept that what is happening was meant to be. Purification rituals can be especially potent now. If you find yourself experiencing the more corrosive attributes of this transit – likely expressed through power struggles, harboring resentment or subconsciously provoking crisis, this is probably a signal that you are clinging to precisely what needs to released, focused on the past and not the future. The way through (and ultimately out) is to pour your energy emphatically and without any hesitation towards the directive of your chart house containing 23’ Cancer. Feeding the Pluto – South Node beast is an exercise in futility and will only deplete you. There is nothing down that hole. Face up and move forward instead.
ARIES March 20 – April 19
Despite all the mushy bizarro vibes out there, you get a big boost with the Sun now in your sign, illuminating the potential for future exploration and development. As much as you seek to make an impact on the world, so much continues to transpire within your private realms, signaling attention is pushed towards your inner life. Imagination is stimulated, and could yield treasures either in terms of healing through releasing habits rooted in subconscious conditioning or even expression of artistic genius. Pluto – South Node brings something to term regarding your professional or life path. Here, too, an ending of some description occurs. Metamorphosis is your theme this week, though you determine what form you will take at the end of this transformation.
Friends and friends with benefits continue to be a major emphasis, though you may be reconsidering how fruitful some of these alliances are. Clarity comes with Mercury righting it’s course from the end of the week and in the days to come. Venus in a more supportive angle to your sign offers a more supportive and nurturing ambience. Partnership dynamics are intensified with Pluto – South Node. The potential for unresolved conflict surrounding past indiscretions to resurface is high, though this signals that matters need to be dealt with and settled permanently. If a relationship is too vulnerable to withstand this period of transformation, then it might be time to let it go. Give crucial decisions a few more weeks to gestate.
You seek an idealized circumstance in your professional realm and have the potential to realize a dream if you can manage to keep your vision grounded in what is realistically attainable at this time. This story has a few more weeks yet to be written and current circumstances could be a bit peculiar or perplexing. The presence of Venus at the apex of your chart is very fortunate, indicating that your life direction is guided by a love relationship or that you desire creative self expression through your career. A supportive ambience in which to realize your goals enhances your prospects. Keep your focus on your own income and resources, entanglements with others will be unproductive.
Venus from Pisces is highly supportive and enhances your creative yearnings. This puts you in a good position to mitigate some of the challenges a partnership could undergo this week into next. Children or your living arrangements (or both) could be the subject of obstinate disagreement and reorganization. Certain situations may simply have reached their expiration date, and if so, it’s time to scrap and release that which is no longer serving your growth. As you undergo inner transformation, the impact on your external associations or circumstances becomes particularly apparent now. Dynamics are shifting significantly. Put yourself first, and stay focused on your needs.
As much as you would like to get your head around the nitty gritty details of a financial agreement things are just a bit too vague to pin down for the time being. Be especially wary about schemes that promise more than can realistically be delivered, the potential to be swindled or let down is pretty high right now. A power struggle with coworkers or challenges to lead a more productive lifestyle could come to a head. The fastest way through is to let go of all the stuff that isn’t working, especially habits that are debilitating your effectiveness. Taking time out or away could be exactly what you need to resolve an endemic issue.
It could be the best or worst time for your romantic relationship. There is so much potential to realize a cherished dream within a relationship, though this is only possible if you can release the past and transform your association with and through love itself. Some form of catharsis is inevitable and holding on to what isn’t working is going to create discomfort. Seeing only what you want to is equally problematic, and the ambience is particularly beguiling in this regard – over idealizing a person or circumstance (here again likely attached to the past) is likely holding back your growth and evolution. Chalk it up to bygones and move forward willingly. A very bright future awaits.
You hold the potential to transform yourself from the inside out right now. Cathartic events or circumstances will require a profound reorganization of your innermost world, although eradicating any negative (usually childhood) conditioning you have endured leaves you free to progress towards your potential for achievement, offering incredible gains. Certain subjective patterns are being exposed, and it’s likely many of these are inhibiting you. While you can’t change where you came from or what you have already been through, this is a productive week in which to consider the elements of your life you do control, and how this can empower you towards attaining the life you actually want.
It’s time to let go of certain ideas and opinions and focus your energy on real knowledge and experience. You’ve likely transformed your message and how you express it over the last nine years and a new cycle is beginning now in regard to how and even what you think. Romance could feature enticing overtures, though you might still be nursing a broken heart or thinking about someone from the past. A recurring dream about a person or place could reveal clues about unresolved feelings sitting in your heart space. Nest with these for now, but be prepared to move forward from the end of the week. Take or make an invitation on the 27th.
While a highly independent and competent person, it is worthwhile to examine how collaboration could be beneficial to you. Those most comfortable with themselves and possessing genuine awareness of what they have to offer are not afraid to ask others for assistance – they know they will be able to reciprocate. If domestic or personal matters have been a bit squirrly, some of the edge is coming off with Venus entering the picture and bringing in some harmony over the next months. From the end of the week, circumstances can be rectified and if relocation or settling matters regarding your living space has been difficult, conditions improve in the early weeks of April.
A facet of your existence is coming to an end – as a metaphorical resurrection occurs over the coming weeks. Signals have been gestating since last July, with even more prominent indications early this January setting the stage for changes. Ultimately the goal is a better you – and what you clear away now illuminates the way for a meaningful relationship to take root. Fated meetings can transpire with April – July being especially potent. Sweet harmonies prevail well into next month and a loving communique Wednesday could really tap your sweet spot. Lots of daydreaming could make for an unproductive week overall, though creative insights or a flash of artistic inspiration is definitely worth exploring.
The space surrounding your income or assets is especially soft and fuzzy this week, making it a less than optimum time for decision making regarding any crucial arrangements about money. From the end of the week, Mercury rights it’s course and the situation becomes easier to deal with, as perplexing circumstances over the prior month yield and answers are easier to come by. If you do feel inspiration percolating and you have ideas that could grow your business prospects, particularly through some creative means or activity, by all means note these. From the second week of April you could get the green light to move forward on these.
It’s much more about who you are than who you know right now, and your eye and emphasis should be trained on what you are cultivating yourself, as opposed to what others are doing. In some cases this means having to go off on your own or even releasing relationships no longer compatible with where you are heading. Inspiration is on high right now and focusing on a creative project could be just the right thing. On the other hand, deceit can (or perhaps already has) played some kind of role here and the bubble could burst if so. You are unfettered with Venus cruising through your sign, and from the end of the week, you move into one of your most auspicious seasons for 2019.
