Stargazer Weekly 3/10-16

WEEKLY FORECAST:

Despite Mercury continuing it’s retrograde motion back through Pisces, this is actually a big week punctuated with some really pivotal events and decisions. Although still not the best time to make a lasting commitment, something pretty substantial occurs towards the end of the week that propels the major themes and activities of the next four months forward, ready or not!

Sun and Mercury meet up between 23 – 24 Pisces late on Thursday, squaring Jupiter (optimism!) and harmonizing the Nodal Axis, thus tapping into destiny, the future and the past. With Jupiter involved, whatever gets under way comes in on overdrive, and the potential for taking something on that can not reasonably be handled is high. At the same time, the enthusiasm and range of perspective stimulated could be precisely the trigger needed to overcome an approach that has has played it safe for too long, delaying progress out of fear of what might happen by just jumping in and getting dirty. 

Mars combines it’s efforts with Saturn, building a sense of momentum while reducing the likelihood of anyone going too far off script. This makes for a steadying and ultimately more conventional approach overall, though if you feel compelled to flip the storyline you have been handed and can actually back it up through a sustained effort and with the resources available to you, then go for it! This is a rare sort of configuration and the time is ripe for bringing a big agenda to fruition. 

Favorable interaction with the Nodes indicates that your inner guidance won’t let you get too far off the course of your destiny, and when events or opportunities that emerge this week have that perfect fit feeling to them – you know you are in exactly the right place at the right time. What occurs now builds on the awareness that has been resonating since the beginning of the year, (also look back to February 25th, when Mercury initially visited this degree for clues) and shifts the narrative in favor of the direction where you are headed next. The concepts and conversations that arise now point to an important event and new beginning that is set to arrive this Summer. 

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES 

March 20 – April 19

The week hinges on a very personal matter, perhaps connected with your residence or family. What occurs is most likely to go down behind closed doors, and affects your most private life. It’s possible you reveal a secret to someone close that changes the trajectory of a situation. Your efforts to establish a reputation as a reliable and conscientious leader in your industry are beginning to pay off for you. You have opportunities this week to demonstrate your skills, especially in regards to negotiation. Go for what you are worth.

Nov 22 – Dec 21

The fog could begin to lift on a confusing residential situation by the weeks end.

Stargazer Weekly Forecast 3/3 – 3/9

WEEKLY FORECAST:

The New Moon in Pisces activates initiative towards accomplishing a cherished objective, though Mercury retrograding at the same time generates a highly confusing ambience in which to do so. The Saturn – Neptune sextile is tapped and very significant to the New Moon configuration, stimulating desire to bring a visionary project to realization. With Mercury only able to make lateral moves – if any at all – a spanner is temporarily thrown into the process. Mercury works it’s way back to Neptune and the degree of the New Moon as it turns direct towards the end of the month, reactivating the themes and topics illuminated this week. It appears something has to be dealt with or reconsidered over the next three weeks in order to articulate the vision that guides the intentions revealed during the New Moon phase on Wednesday. 

While the next few weeks could prove beguiling, and what feels like pervasive setbacks are likely to throw matters off course, it’s likely a decision or forward movement hinges on information that simply isn’t available, or an idea that hasn’t occurred to you yet. Take it a step at a time and see what is uncovered. A flash of inspiration is waiting in the wings. Second chances are possible, and if the hectic pace of the year has prevented you from taking care of one thing or another, you might find you have the time now. From the end of next week, the plot thickens considerably….  

Uranus teased it’s transit in Taurus last year from mid – May through early November and is now ready to seal the deal. Stability is tested during this transit, especially in regard to financial systems (Taurus governs the gold and the Geld after all,) and innovative or futuristic applications to these will likely proliferate, with more online (and AI assisted) transactions as well as new forms of exchange such as cryptocurrency continuing to establish credibility and potentially disrupt the current systems. I shared the following reflections on the Uranus – Taurus transit in 2017: 

“…Expect economic upheaval, for as certainly that some monetary systems will crumble, new ones will come into existence. This will be a longer range trend that extends well beyond 2018, as the Uranus in Taurus transit eluded to here will endure through April of 2026. Taurus governs money and possessions, Uranus the new and unconventional. These two qualities exist in fundamental conflict: Taurus represents that which is steady and reliable…. Enter Uranus and it’s distinctive tendency for disruption of the status quo…. So there is a period of disorder ahead related to the security applied to banks, credit cards, financial institutions and the economy itself….” 

While this is the overarching influence of the transit, it’s where Uranus lands in your chart you will experience the liberation most directly, and it’s likely these larger societal shifts will be what makes it possible for you. Individuals with important chart factors in early degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius will be affected by the more destabilizing and abrasive attributes of transit up front. Fixed sign modality is also likely to find this the hardest to deal with than any of them.  

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

Uranus moves out of your sign and brings it’s liberating force to your earnings and savings. Going into business with a group of friends or within a collective endeavor could produce successful results over the coming years. You do your best to not anticipate a particular outcome right now, though you can be assured there will be plenty of ups and downs, all reflecting an experimental approach meant to offer you greater autonomy and freedom overall. What ever has been commonplace is unlikely to last this transit!  

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Quirky Uranus roots down in your house of self and identity, maybe not your best look, but one you might get used to in time? The innate conflict between the zodiacs radical bad boy and your essentially down to earth demeanor will push you to grow in ways you might not altogether be comfortable with. Try to accommodate some give and take, and you might find the experience liberating, or discover an aspect of yourself that sets you on a whole new life course all together. Big changes are on the horizon if you dare to walk to the edge. 

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

There are breakthroughs where your most compulsive habits lie and as these rise to the surface, you have the potential to release them. Psychic phenomena, dreams or premonitory experiences can be highly illuminating in this phase, and you may even develop a sixth sense, assuming you had not connected to it previously. You confront a spiritual dimension of yourself in a way previously unexperienced and this has the benefit of helping you to realize and release subconscious patterns that you may have not even realized were there.       

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope

CANCER June 21 – July 22

Uranus has generated a highly stimulating atmosphere in your professional life over these prior years, and while seeking an authentic life path has likely provided memorable experiences and opportunities for self discovery, unstable conditions were frequently upsetting. The next few years are positive for outreach and combining your talents with those who share your goals. A project you have sought to initiate in regard to technology can come to fruition now as well. Socially this is also an appropriate time to expand your circle and incorporate broader viewpoints into your perspective.

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope

LEO July 23 – August 22

The next several years could provide some unexpected changes in direction and a partner could play a pivotal role in the opportunities that are coming your way. It’s equally possible you are required to reorient your own objectives to accommodate changes that they are going through to keep a relationship afloat. Ultimately this will all be quite liberating, but if you cling too hard to what you know or what you think is right, this process could prove to be upsetting. Moving out of your comfort zone and taking a chance on the unexpected gets you further fastest, offering liberation.    

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope  

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

New horizons open under the auspices of the Uranus transit for Virgo, and a great adventure that may have only been teased last year now opens up new vistas of experience. You endured several growing pains over the last few years, particularly in your close relationships which were highly cathartic and live changing. Now the fruits of those efforts pay off, and the coming years will emphasize reaching out into unexpected new frontiers of awareness and knowledge. Expanding your mind and consciousness and putting your stamp on the world is encouraged.             

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

The edge comes off your relationships, and while there have been liberating experiences over these prior years this has come with the cost of upheaval and instability. Having discovered a more authentic way to relate to others, you can now shift attention to deeper interpersonal matters. Cathartic experiences are possible here, as you find you have the power to eliminate even the most compulsive behavior patterns. To the extent these are affecting your personal relationships, these realizations will help you cultivate better associations both personally and financially.  

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

Uranus in opposition to your sign provides a disruptive influence within your relational realm. The learning curve over the next few years is going to be about finding ways to relate more honestly and authentically. You meet people who provoke very intense responses from you and it’s possible to perceive this energy as confrontational. This pattern repeats itself indefinitely until you acknowledge another person as their own unique self and relinquish all neurotic and co-dependent attachments to controlling them. Liberation comes when you trust yourself enough to let your partner be free.  

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22 – Dec 21

Uranus in Taurus will ask you to examine your freedom, and challenge you to change your routines and schedule to have more flexibility in your lifestyle, engendering a more liberated day to day existence. Obviously this is most readily expressed through your job, and if you have a profession you love, this transit will provide you with the opportunity to find exciting new ways to develop your productivity. If you are feeling oppressed by the grind of a 9-5 (or whatever your version of that is) it is likely to produce a more volatile period during which you will seek out greater independence in how you live and earn. 

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19 

A tricky and fundamentally taxing period comes to an end. You’ve maneuvered the way through a lot of changes down in your root cellar, likely experiencing some dramatic shifts residentially while seeking to establish more independence in your personal life. Having overcome some extraordinary challenges, you are now free to engage a more creative perspective, rekindling your spark and finding new ways in which to express yourself. Technology or something unconventional could play a role. Earnings increase exponentially through the self-discovery you make, enabling even greater creative pursuits to flourish.         

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

You could make some startling discoveries about your heritage that transforms your connection to your past or lineage. At the same time, family members and obligations to them which have become constricting and you may seek to liberate yourself from the responsibilities others hold you to. The home you live in could undergo substantial changes or your living arrangements may transform to accommodate the freedom you seek in this period. Not the easiest process, but one that will assure you much greater range of motion and self expression in time. Attend to your roots.

2019 Horoscope // March Horoscope // Daily Horoscope 

PISCES February 19 – March 20

Socially this is set to be a really interesting passage for you, with learning and education an especially hot area ripe for exploration. Innovation and new methods or research could be particularly appealing to you. You curiosity will be aroused unexpectedly or by topics you may have never considered particularly interesting, stimulating adventures into entirely new intellectual or theoretical spaces. There is an open quality and you will find discussing interesting and even unusual ideas with fascinating people, cultivating a broad entourage of diverse individuals as you learn and grow.

Stargazer Forecast March 2019

MARCH FORECAST:

Mercury Retrograde dominates March headlines, though a couple interesting subplots fill this one out so you’ll have to keep a few balls in the air regardless! Here we go ->

Yes, Mercury Retrograde is a bit of a foul odor to contend with but it does tap into some really powerful dynamics, suggesting an important decision or negotiation is extended through early if not mid April. This looks like a Big Deal because heavy weights Saturn and Pluto are entwined deeply into the tapestry of this thing and their influence here suggests a very significant long range matter is at stake, so don’t feel pressured to come to a conclusion – take your time and CAREFULLY work through the details. Mars and the North Node are also major players, so moxie and the hands of destiny are busy at work here is well.

The significance of Neptune can not be understated, as those who read Stargazer regularly or grabbed the Mercury Retrograde Survival Guide are well aware of by now. Events, premonitions or dreams hinging on the mystical that occurred around February 19th offered a glimpse into something genuinely sacred and provided divine assistance, a reminder of something – perhaps even – other worldly, that reconnected you to a dream or cherished vision. This likely came across as a vague or faint perception, but if you had the opportunity to take note of it, this insight is a crucial element during the period when Mercury goes direct (March 28th) as well as the two full weeks surrounding this date. 

It’s during this period the ambience at it’s most bewildering and the likelihood of confusion to be at it’s highest. But if you step back and out of all the noise – there is a treasure in there, maybe something buried really deeply that requires some consideration and exploration. It might be a creative, visionary or spiritual prospect you had surrendered, but whatever it is, it is begging for recognition and acceptance now. It wants to be revealed. Neptune is also notoriously deceptive, and that includes the deception individuals perpetuate on themselves. It’s easy to fall down into a whimsical rabbit hole with this one, just make sure you leave yourself a life line to climb back out with when you’re done spelunking in the Netherworld. 

The treasure you might find in there is a hot damn mess, that a real fraud or betrayal has occurred and is now consuming your resources – spiritual, emotional or material. It’s time to face up to and release what is unreal. A lot of people are likely to confront some inner demons associated with addiction or uncover the mistruths of gurus and charlatans. In order to wake up, first you have to go to sleep. The subconscious and intuitive realms are highly sensitized, and those with innate spiritual or empathic gifts are likely to be on overwhelm. Try not to tune out the message: if you feel inundated and submerged by the volume of vibes you are picking up, pull back, take a nap, write it all down. It’s gonna be intense, but also potentially magical. 

Other key topics (including the highly potent Pluto – South Node conjunction at the end of the month) will be discussed in upcoming weekly forecasts, and you are always free to reach out to me for a private consultation if you need a more personalized look at what is in store at stargazerastroatlas@gmail.com or become a subscriber on Patreon to join our new Facebook page – Stargazer Social for the next live Q+A session.   

MARCH HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

The emphasis is turning towards your foundations and personal life, and this is a good month in which to work on matters of security or finance that can enhance the attainment of the order you desire (and require) in your domestic realm. Unconventional methods of earnings could make things unstable, but you are seeking a more autonomous and authentic connection to how you earn and save. There could be possible professional developments, some good and some bad, as Mars combines fruitfully with the heavyweights posited in your area of profession and personal distinction. Events towards the end of the month, however, pack the biggest punch of all. A karmic return on prior activities (South Node conjunct Pluto) provides a stunning transformation in your career – for better or for worse.   

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Mars in your sign gives you a real can-do va-voom this month, and coupled with Venus at the top of your chart your reputation for quality and hard work can take you far professionally. There is some to and fro on the way to the attainment of your aspirations, and friends could derail you with enticing offers of decadent pursuits. Stay true to your values and you will continue to grow and thrive – which goes without saying, but especially integral to coming out on top in this crucial phase of development. The biggest opportunities for growth are present where you take a chance on a new way of doing things. You had a taste of Uranus in your sign last year, and this electrifying influence is on the way back, this time to stay! Avoid travel towards the end of the month, there could be challenges to educational pursuits as well, even dangerous conditions – be advised. 

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

Venus from Aquarius is super juicy for pursuits of pleasure, so carve some time out of a busy schedule to connect with your sweetheart and cultivate your relationship, especially if it is to someone at a distance. The 21st sparkles with potential for fulfillment within a promising love affair. Financial and professional matters are equally significant, with several details getting sorted throughout the month and into next. Matters can be highly perplexing, though the New Moon on the 6th holds several indications about where you should be heading next, even if you don’t reach the destination for another month. A lot is going on behind the scenes and your instincts are strong now. Meditation could be a helpful way to tap into your inner voice. Uranus transiting your area of secrets and psychology for the next several years can shake you loose from debilitating habits –  but you have to pinpoint these first!       

CANCER June 21 – July 22

This is a great time to reconnect with long lost friends, and even an online reunion could provide a nice trip down memory lane, stimulating you to resurrect a forgotten passion or dream. A distant vision comes in and out of focus throughout the month, and if you are planning a journey this is likely to experience delays or permutations. Projects associated with broadcasting or a planned lecture or presentation likely meets with a similar fate, just keep working on the details and watch things come together effortlessly next month. Personal growth is a major theme, and you’ll likely want to be highly selective about what you choose to embark on next. Be alert, vigilant even, about the safety of a close partner, who is susceptible to incredible challenges at the end of the month. The positive on this is a major catharsis is going to occur – for better or worse.       

LEO July 23 – August 22

Your love light is turned on bright Leo, and people just can’t help but be attracted to you, making this a fantastic time to explore enticing opportunities. *Explore* is the operative here with Mercury retro casting shadows of doubt on situations and causing general confusion and delays. Le sigh. Uranus renters your zone of public profile, reputation and life calling. This stimulates a cycle of a several years during which you will seek autonomy and even liberation in your career. You may begin to work in a profession you had never considered before and a connection to technology or some form of innovation might play a big role in this. You make considerable progress this month, as Mars amps up your desire to make an impact or impression on the public, just be advised that there you are in a fairly competitive market.     

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

An incredibly romantic atmosphere is present from March into April, and there are numerous opportunities to realize your hearts desires in this climate, (circle the 6th, 8th and 10th). Mercury retrograde indicates there could be some bewildering turns of events this month by the same token, with the who or the when very vague and conditions unfavorable to make a lasting decision. It’s likely a situation from the past requires reconciliation: an old chapter needs to be closed before the next one can be opened. Someone you were attached to previously might drift back into your orbit, and either unfinished business or a reconciliation is on the cards for you. By next month you will understand why the best was yet to come and why it was worth waiting for. Use this time to attend to wellness and productivity.            

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

You are reflecting heavily on how the work you do today is serving the professional advancement you desire for tomorrow, and this inquiry could result in delays through next month if you are seeking the right position in which to show and grow your talents. Waiting for the right situation to gel or click is advised, as a fantastic opportunity emerges around April 9th that points you in just the right direction. There could equally be a need to address productivity in order to reach your goals, so if you’ve been sliding on your wellness routine, or worse yet, indulging in bad habits, you get an indication this month of what needs to change. Enjoy romance and recreation as fully as possible, while Venus generates a fantastic ambience for exploring pleasure, love and creative pursuits. All work no play…no bueno!  

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

Love relationships could be a tricky business this month, and if you or someone you yearn for has not been completely honest, this period could be particularly difficult to handle as certain secrets emerge. You may also be feeling nostalgic for someone that got away, reminiscing about the last time you felt intoxicated by romance, and even reach out to a former flame if this longing becomes overwhelming. The end of the month is potent for a development, though you might be saying goodbye just as quickly as you said hello. April is far more supportive for nurturing a connection, and if the time is right, this time, you’ll find out soon enough. Domestic matters have a more settled air about them and this is a good time to spruce your house or invest in refurbishing your living space. 

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22 – Dec 21

The domestic realm is highlighted, with some unusual changes to your living situation occurring this month. Individuals may come and go mysteriously, as visitors, family or flatmates may be exhibiting bizarre behavior. If people have been elusive about paying you their rent or other shared expenses, you might have to wait a few more weeks to get to a straight answer. The social ambience is positive and invites to events can turn up some romantic prospects, or at least bring some charming people into your orbit. You are likely in a hardworking phase this month and have numerous opportunities to find assignments that add to your earnings. These will enable you to overcome some of the more endemic financial issues of the previous months and make progress on your goals. You can release a detrimental pattern that has affected your sense of self worth at the end of the month. Let it go…  

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19 

The right answer this month is maybe… as certainty is an elusive commodity for the time being. What this does offer you is the chance to explore conceptually and mine the richness of your imagination for ideas as well as solutions, as potentials, anyhow. Unfinished projects could resurface, and friends or acquaintances you reconnect with tend to offer some inspiration or insight. Financially you can make some headway, and where things have been hurly burly there are opportunities in store to get your budget back on track and even indulge in a few luxuries. Mars amplifies your drive and libido, making this a productive time for creative expression or sharing in pleasurable, sensual experiences. Uranus now back in this area of your chart promotes new forms of self expression and makes you more experimental in your pursuits. A dramatic event towards the end of the month highlights a life changing metamorphosis. Change or be changed Cap.      

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

Few things spell out pleasure, romance and luxury like a Venus transit, which you will enjoy this month quite thoroughly, maybe even enough to not notice when finances go totally sideways while Mercury retrogrades… though probably not. The events of March points to a recalibration of your self worth, and in many ways ideals (as opposed to reality) might be steering the ship here. In itself this might not be a terrible thing, but it’s possible over the course of the month to come to the realization that something isn’t quite what you thought it was, and the potential to learn that something dubious or even underhanded has occurred is heightened. The good news is, once discovered you have the wherewithal to make the necessary adjustments. Domestic matters keep you on your toes. Try to keep it non-confrontational.    

PISCES February 19 – March 20

Since Mercury retrograde falls in your sign, you are clearly the most affected during this beguiling and bewildering time. You do have the opportunity here though to thoroughly connect with your source of personal inspiration whether it be through creativity, mystical or spiritual activities. The New Moon in your sign on the 6th is the perfect time to tap into your essence. You are deep in the flow – but equally feeling grounded and assured. With Venus tucked away in a secretive, yet inspirational, portion of your chart this is a good time to pull back on anything inessential and focus squarely on your own personal and private matters. The likelihood of misunderstandings is especially high right now, so be slow in commitments, if you choose to make any at all. A glimmering new phase ushers in from the 26th, when Venus begins an enticing monthlong transit of your sign and you can quickly put wrongs to rights.       

Stargazer Weekly 2/24-3/2

FIVE OF SWORDS: I accept my fear and let it go.”

WEEKLY FORECAST:

Relational dynamics continue to be in frame, and though a partnership may have survived last weeks gauntlet, there may be a few more tests to endure. Key alignments this week include Venus conjunct South Node and Venus square Uranus, both of which indicate a need to break away from a circumstance that has become restrictive or confining, or simply release something or someone with whom further growth is no longer possible. Venus – Uranus is highly impulsive, and more likely to signal something rash and unpredictable. If a situation has become overwhelmingly oppressive or too close for comfort (Saturn, Pluto) it is more likely to come to a volatile crossroads now. To the extent partners give one another a reasonable amount of freedom and remain flexible, this can actually be exhilarating, and trying something different, either together or separately, can considerably reinvigorate the relationship. The desire for independence will be further enhanced as Venus enters Aquarius the following day. 

Venus to South Node denotes highly karmic or fated undertones in love relationships. Meetings that transpire tend to have past life connections that seek resolution. It may be time to come to terms with the fact a relationship may be past it’s expiration date and acknowledge – on a resonant emotional level – that it is time to relinquish a situation which is not capable of further evolution. A sense of nostalgia or reminiscing on a past love connection offers an opportunity for heart healing as you recall what someone brought into your life, but equally why it needed to end and fully release the scenario, thus clearing the slate for the future. As the South Node represents past karma, in some instances there can be a positive return on a prior good deed in the form of affection or resources received. 

At the same time, Mercury connects to the nodal axis, connecting fruitfully to both past and future directives. This will be the first of three transits, but what is placed into motion on February 25th is very significant to the process that unfolds between now and April 9th, when the final aspect occurs. Mercury to nodes (sextile SN Capricorn/trine NN Cancer) enables the easy and guided transition between what has been to what will be. This degree (24’ Pisces) has remarkable implications, as it occurs at the same degree of the next inferior conjunction (Sun conjunct Mercury retrograde, March 15th) which makes the same harmonious aspect to the Nodes. (WOW!) A conversation or decision made at the beginning of the week opens the door to the future, but also draws from the resources and lessons that have been developed previously. The learning curve presented over the next retrograde cycle hinges on finding what is helpful from the past and utilizing it productively to build on goals forthcoming. 

The Sun – Mars cycle is also activated, making this a very productive period for completing projects or objectives initiated in late July of 2017. Developments last Summer brought extreme tests to this enterprise, specifically during Mars retrograde and the Sun opposite Mars phase that occurred July 27th, 2018. Assuming you were able to recalibrate an aspiration and move it forward at that integral stage (as opposed to abandoning it, assuming there was nothing there to salvage) the final results begin to come in now, offering closure within this matter. The next cycle initiates on August 29th, when Sun and Mars conjunct at 6’ Virgo (trine Uranus – wowza!!!) but that’s a story for another time. For time being, wrap up the business at hand.

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.

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.

A creative project is a high priority and an agreement you make in this period has the potential to see it manifest.

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

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.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

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.

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.

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 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.

 

Weekly Forecast 11/18 – 24

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

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

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

temperance

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

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

The Sun in your sign from Thursday followed by a Full Moon the following day places emphasis on your closest relationship and where it is taking you. You likely feel optimistic about your prospects, but Mercury retrograde could slow a decision or commitment for a few more weeks. Domestic matters can be consuming, though you see signals over next weekend that an ideal can be attained.

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

Self care is a major preoccupation, and rest is required right now to enhance your vitality. Socially this can be an exciting time, and finding a way to carve out your schedule to make room for everything that is going on is going to keep you busy! A domestic matter is culminating through the Winter days. You get a message mid week that stimulates your desire for independence.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

A love relationship can culminate this week, but the Full Moon also points to several adjustments required to get this one off the ground. There is the potential here for a real breakthrough, but also for a situation to implode unexpectedly. A change of heart is possible when Mercury goes direct. A financial matter resurfaces from next weekend onward. A source of income comes back into play.

PISCES February 19 – March 20

Career maters become emphasized and people who can help you succeed tend to see you in a very positive light. A personal or residential matter is highlighted over the Full Moon phase, and your living situation could require drastic reorganization. Neptune direct from next Saturday puts you back in the zone, you feel more comfortable expressing your innate talents. Enjoy!

Weekly Forecast 11/11 – 17

RELEASING CONSTRAITS

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

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

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

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

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

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

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

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

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

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

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

CANCER June 21 – July 22

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

LEO July 23 – August 22

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

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

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

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

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

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

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

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

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

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

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

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

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

PISCES February 19 – March 20

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

Stargazer November Forecast

CHANGING STATIONS

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

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

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

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

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

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

ARIES March 20 – April 19

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

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

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

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

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

CANCER June 21 – July 22

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

LEO July 23 – August 22

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

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

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

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

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

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

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

SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21

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

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19

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

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

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

PISCES February 19 – March 20

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