Astrology Forecast for the Week of August 8, 2022 through August 14, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of August 8, 2022 through August 14, 2022 features five planetary aspects (Venus oppose Pluto, Sun square Uranus, Mars sextile Neptune, the Sun opposes Saturn, and Mars trine Pluto), a Full Moon in Aquarius and Venus moving out of Cancer and into Leo.

So, for the fourth week in a row, it’s going to be a busy week. Let’s dive in…

Cosmic Overview

Last week, Mars got tangled up in the ongoing Saturn square Uranus configuration. This week, it is the Sun whose up to bat. Whereas Mars is our ability to go out into the world and get what we want out of life, the Sun is our identity and our destiny.

Now, this is difficult energy, but every aspect has a purpose. In the case of Sun square Uranus and Sun oppose Saturn, the purpose is to get us to make the necessary changes in our lives, to get us back on the right path.

Of course, when our lives are running smoothly, who wants to make change?  However, when the world impinges itself upon us through daily frustrations, obstacles, and limitations, we notice where we need to make changes, where we need to build structure, and ultimately helps us (despite the difficulty) get back on our path.  Since we are working with the Sun, creating necessary change will ultimately help you experience fulfillment and joy.

Now, on with the forecast!

Daily Breakdown

Monday, August 8, 2022

We start the week off with the Moon void of course in Sagittarius. Try to avoid starting anything new or signing documents until the Moon moves into Capricorn at 2:39 PM EDT/10:39 AM PDT. Once the Moon moves into Capricorn, it’s an excellent time to tie up loose ends, focus on tasks that need completion, and tend to duties and responsibilities.

Tuesday, August 9, 2022

Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn. It’s time to get real about relationships, regardless of how painful and emotionally intense they may be. Conflicts in relationships may surface, and it’s best to avoid manipulative power struggles. Often Venus oppose Pluto will show you how you are being codependent in your relationships.  The key to working with this aspect is to accept the relationship dynamic for what it is – the good, the bad, and the ugly.  You can then make decisions about the relationship’s future, if need be. Govern yourself accordingly!

Wednesday, August 10, 2022

The Moon moves through Capricorn, and there is still residual energy from yesterday’s Venus-Pluto opposition.  It might be best to focus on your duties, obligations, and responsibilities, and try to push away intrusive negative or obsessive thoughts if they surface. This afternoon, the Moon moves into Aquarius, and it’s a perfect time to hang out with a close friend or someone you trust.

Thursday, August 11, 2022

On Thursday, the Full Moon occurs in the sign of Aquarius at 9:36 PM EDT/6:36 PM PDT. This Full Moon cycle is excellent for breaking through stagnant situations (especially karmic ones), developing better friendships, expanding your social circle, and opening yourself up to new experiences. Also, Venus moves into romantic Leo, and for the single people out there, you may find yourself attracted to someone new. For everyone else, you may start to feel romantically alive again, but don’t let your emotions go overboard, and try to let things manifest organically.

Friday, August 12, 2022

The Moon will be void of course in Aquarius during the early morning hours. Therefore, avoid starting anything new or making firm agreements until after 2:44 PM EDT/11:44 PM PDT, when the Moon will move into Pisces.  This evening is an excellent time to watch movies, explore the arts, or simply enjoy good music.  The Moon in Pisces is perfect for rest and relaxation, and after the intense energies of the past month, you deserve it.

Saturday, August 13, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Pisces on Saturday. Try to be as clear and precise as possible when communicating with others, because the Moon will oppose Mercury until mid-afternoon.  Later, Saturday evening, it’s an excellent time to do something outside the box and unconventional. Discovering and exploring new things is always recommended when the Moon sextiles Uranus. It’s also a good time to spend the evening with friends and other like-minded individuals.

Sunday, August 14, 2022

We close the week with the Sun opposing Saturn in Aquarius. The Sun oppose Saturn is a difficult aspect, because we often feel alone and at odds with the world around us. You may also feel that people are trying to hold you back or are trying to thwart you.  Ultimately, you may need to make compromises (big and small) to gain momentum again.

See you next week!

The Astrology Forecast for the Week of August 1, 2022 – August 7, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of August 1, 2022 through August 7, 2022 features five planetary aspects (Mars conjunct Uranus, Venus sextile Uranus, Venus sextile Mars, Venus trine Neptune, and Mars square Saturn), and Mercury moves out of Leo and into Virgo.

It’s a busy week, so without further ado…

Cosmic Overview

The major aspect of the week is Mars conjunct Uranus in Taurus. Mars conjunct Uranus is an extremely unpredictable aspect, because it doesn’t like limitations, and will attempt to free itself from constraints. Of course, this creates enormous tension, and it’s easy to get caught up in impulsive decision-making, even if it’s to your detriment. You may also notice that people are more ‘on edge’ (or you may be), and the slightest provocation can lead to a volatile reaction.

Working with Mars conjunct Uranus is difficult, because it runs on energy and adrenaline, not rationality. So, you need to be as proactive as possible this week.  Mars-Uranus does reveal the areas of your life that are limited, because these areas will be where you feel the most frustrations. Try to channel this energy into making changes in your life, but do so once the dust settles, so you can use your wise mind, not your momentary emotional response.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, August 1, 2022

We start the week off with Mars conjoined to Uranus in Taurus. You may feel agitated with others, and you may react in potentially rash ways. You may feel extremely frustrated by situations in your life where you feel discouraged or feel the system is holding you back. As best as possible, try to be proactive, and think things out before making a move.

Tuesday, August 2, 2022

The highlights for Tuesday feature Venus forming helpful sextiles to Uranus and Mars. Since Venus is a benefic, she will bring out the more constructive side of Mars conjunct Uranus, which is the urge to break free from limiting constraints, and she will help do so productively. Furthermore, you will notice that you want to be around people that are adventurous and add excitement and pizazz to your life. Boring and monotonous activities will not do it for you, because you need to do something that excites you and feeds your soul.  Plus, Venus sextile Mars is positive for financial investments and new business prospects.

Wednesday, August 3, 2022

The Moon moves through Libra on Wednesday. Libra is in the sign associated with relationships, and it’s an excellent day to focus on yours.  This evening, the Moon forms a lovely trine to Saturn, and it’s an auspicious time to work through relationships that may have been difficult over the past few weeks.  Although you will want to smooth things over, make sure you do it while honoring your boundaries.

Thursday, August 4, 2022

Mercury moves out of Leo and into Virgo. Mercury in Virgo understands life through day-to-day experiences. This is an excellent time to try to manage your life more efficiently and pay attention to the pesky little details. You will also notice that the more stable your life is, the better your outlook on the future will be.

Friday, August 5, 2022

The Moon moves through Scorpio and retriggers Uranus, Mars, and Saturn. Unresolved emotions from earlier in the week may resurface, so stay on guard. You may feel intense emotions throughout the day, but try not to let them influence any decisions you need to make. If self-doubt surfaces, push those thoughts away.

Saturday, August 6, 2022

The Moon moves into Sagittarius shortly after noon, and it’s the perfect day to go out and have some fun. It’s been a difficult two weeks, astrologically speaking, and it’s not over yet.  You may want to spend time with people you enjoy and take a brief break from the real world. Do something fun and adventurous.

Sunday, August 7, 2022

The last day of the week brings us a conflict of conflicting aspects. We begin with Venus forming a lovely trine to Neptune.  It’s not a great day for practical matters, because you may have a hard time staying focused.  However, it is great for creative projects.  But make sure you work on anything creative early, because this afternoon Mars squares Saturn in Aquarius. You may feel discouraged by life, and this could easily trigger your insecurities. It’s also easy to fall into a fear-based mindset, and this could make you feel ill at east with your life.  While Mars is square Saturn, it’s recommended you take a deep look within and figure out what you want and need out of your life.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of July 25, 2022 – July 30, 2022

Mercury square Uranus, Mercury oppose Saturn

The astrology forecast for the week of July 25, 2022 through July 30, 2022 features five planetary aspects (Venus square Jupiter, Mercury square Mars, Mercury square Uranus, Mercury oppose Saturn, and the Sun trine Jupiter), a New Moon in Leo, and Jupiter turns retrograde in Aries.

The final week of July is troubling energetically, so let’s dive right in.

Cosmic Overview

This week, Mercury travels through Leo and triggers Mars, Uranus, and Saturn, which have been building up recently, and it’s a powder keg of energy waiting to be unleashed. Just a gentle warning: Take care of yourself this week!  Get plenty of rest, make healthy food choices, drink plenty of water, and since Mars is involved, move your body. This week, you should really put your self-care toolkit to use.

Since early July, Mars has slowly built steam, forming an explosive conjunction with Uranus and a frustrating square to Saturn. Also, Saturn and Uranus have been moving towards each other, bringing back the unresolved tensions of the last two years. Mercury will activate all these planets this week.

So, what does this mean?

For the last two years, Saturn in Aquarius has been in a difficult aspect to Uranus in Taurus. Simply, Saturn likes things the way they are and doesn’t like change. He dreams of the golden age, when everything was perfect and in its proper place. Conversely, Uranus wants to shake things up, tear down the system, and is the quintessential definition of change. He is concerned with pushing us forward into an idealistic world that ushers in human development and ingenuity. Uranus is perfectly comfortable tearing down the system if it fits into the grander scheme of things.

To add insult to injury, Mars JUST likes to blow sh!t up!

Over the next few weeks (Saturn square Uranus will be active for the rest of the year), the news will be littered with events that are explosive, eruptive, and downright jaw dropping. Expect problems around the world, potential governmental protests, escalation of tensions, and all out warfare in politics. If you’ve been planning an “info” break, this week would be a good time to unplug.

How does Mercury work into the mix?

In astrology, Mercury is the communication planet. He helps us understand life, communicate to others, and comprehend information that we may receive. It’s easily conceivable that when Mercury makes difficult aspects to other planets (especially malefic Mars and Saturn), how things can go downhill rather quickly.

You can expect tense conversations, frustrations with the state of the world and/or your life, and feelings of insecurity and self-doubt. However, the key to working with this energy is to be proactive.  Look at the areas of your life where you may have resisted change or where you feel frustrated by a lack of change, and begin to carve out a strategy that moves your life forward. And remember, you don’t have to rush things.  Sometimes having a plan is enough of an elixir to help mitigate the energies.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, July 25, 2022

We start the week off with Venus square Jupiter, which is a pretty enjoyable aspect, especially if you are not mired down in duties and responsibilities. And, even if you are, try to spend some time doing something enjoyable. Venus square Jupiter is optimistic, and you will enjoy the company of others, so social excursions and gatherings that include your inner circle are recommended. However, please note that you will have little self-discipline while this aspect is active, so try not to let things out of control.  Also, be careful when making purchases, because Venus square Jupiter can be impulsive.

Tuesday, July 26, 2022

Put a watch on your tongue, because Mercury in Leo forms a discordant aspect (square) with Mars in Taurus. You may feel agitated and irritable throughout the day, and this could lead to arguments or uncomfortable confrontations. Be careful with your words, because you may say something you will later regret.

Wednesday, July 27, 2022

The Moon moves through Cancer and trines Neptune later this afternoon. It’s an excellent day for spiritual or meditative work that will help you get in touch with your inner world. Creative projects also get a boost.  However, later this evening the Moon opposes Pluto, and difficult emotions may surface.  If you feel overwhelmed, try to do some self-care techniques to help manage them effectively.

Thursday, July 28, 2022

On Thursday, we have a pretty active day, starting with the New Moon in fiery Leo.  This New Moon is all about you! It’s excellent for doing magic or intentional work that helps put you in a favorable light with others. You can also use this energy to get a new job, a promotion, or start a new romantic relationship. The main takeaway is doing you, and doing it well.

Later in the day, Mercury opposes Uranus in Taurus. The way you experience this aspect depends on your ability to be flexible and embrace change. Otherwise, today you will feel the jitters and possibly experience some mild anxiety. You may have trouble controlling your thoughts, and this might make you feel uneasy.  Avoid jumping to conclusions or forming judgments at this time. Instead, try to sit with your feelings and approach concerns at a less volatile time.

Friday, July 29, 2022

The Moon spends its last day in Leo and tangles with Mars, Uranus, and Saturn. You may have difficulties controlling your emotions if you feel you are being thwarted or maligned by others. Although it may be difficult, try to avoid conflicts. Arguing your position or standing your ground is futile and can actually make matters worse.

Saturday, July 30, 2022

The weekend starts with the Moon moving into Virgo during the early afternoon hours.  It’s an excellent day to focus on projects that need to be completed, and your ordinary duties and responsibilities. Since Virgo is a sign related to health matters, it’s perfect for getting a great workout in or starting a wellness program.

Sunday, July 31, 2022

We close the week with Mercury opposing Saturn and the Sun trining Jupiter. Although you may wake up feeling down and insecure, your mood should quickly rebound, with the Sun forming a trine to Jupiter in Aries. It’s an excellent day to leave the past behind and focus on the future. You may need to make changes to your game plan or tweak your long-term goals. However, staying focused on you’re doing what you can to improve your life may help you overcome any difficulties you may have. At the end of the day, you create your own future, as long as you are willing to do the work and have a positive attitude.

See you next week!

The Astrology Forecast for the Week of June 11, 2022 – July 17, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of June 11, 2022 through July 17, 2022 features six planetary aspects (Venus trine Saturn, Mercury sextile Uranus, Venus square Neptune, the Sun conjunct Mercury, Mercury trine Neptune, and the Sun trine Neptune), a Full Moon in Capricorn, and Venus moves out of Gemini and into Cancer.

It’s a massively busy week, with all the action occurring midweek and the latter part of the weekend. So, let’s dive right in!

Cosmic Overview

The Full Moon in Capricorn occurs on July 13, 2022 at 2:38 PM EST/11:38 AM PST. The Full Moon in Capricorn forms a sign-based aspect to beneficial Jupiter, which will help boost any magic or intention work you plan to do. While the Full Moon is in the sign of the goat, it’s a great time to do career magic, eliminate blocks that may be limiting your sphere of influence, and work towards achieving your goals. Magical or intention work to remove business obstacles is phenomenal during a Capricorn Full Moon.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, July 11, 2022

The Moon moves through spirited Sagittarius. You should feel optimistic as you go throughout the day, which will ensure your social encounters will go smoothly. Also, you may find that you are focused on spiritual matters or big picture concerns. Go after your goals, because with the right mindset, you can achieve anything.

Tuesday, July 12, 2022

The Moon leaves Sagittarius and moves into Capricorn, forming a lovely trine to Mars. It’s an excellent day to focus on tasks that need to be completed, because Mars will give you the energy to get things done. Later in the day, the Moon squares Jupiter and should pave the way for an enjoyable evening.

Wednesday, July 13, 2022

Besides the Full Moon in Capricorn, Venus trines Saturn and Mercury sextiles Uranus. It’s an auspicious day to focus on financial matters, especially investments that may prove lucrative. This evening, try to do something outside your routine. You may need a little excitement in your life to break up the daily monotony.

Thursday, July 14, 2022

On Thursday, relationships may be a little tricky, with Venus squaring Neptune. If you have unrealistic expectations or fantasies infused into your relationships, problems and disappointments are likely to occur. You may need to accept that your partner is human and capable of making mistakes.  It’s not recommended to start new relationships at this time.

Friday, July 15, 2022

The Moon moves through Aquarius and forms a troubling square to Uranus. During the morning hours, expect the unexpected and plans may go awry. Continue to be on guard throughout the day, as the Moon applies to a conjunction with Saturn. You may go through feelings of self-doubt, and you may experience insecurities. Push away negative thoughts when they surface.

Saturday, July 16, 2022

The Sun makes a lovely conjunction to Mercury in watery Cancer. You will feel more social than you ordinarily would, and will want to connect with people you care about. Also, the Sun conjunct Mercury is an excellent time to plan long-term goals and focus on your future possibilities and potentials.

Sunday, July 17, 2022

We close the week with a burst of cosmic energy as the Sun and Mercury trine Neptune and Venus moves out of the sign of the twins and into Cancer.  It’s a perfect day to work on creative projects. You will be inspired by your experiences and want to express them meaningfully.  You will also notice that you are more receptive to the needs of others and ready to assist them if necessary. This evening, love, romance, and emotional connection will be important as Venus slips into Cancer.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of July 4, 2022 – July 10, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of July 4, 2022 through July 10, 2022 features 3 major planetary aspects (Mercury sextile Mars, Mercury square Jupiter, Sun sextile Uranus) and Mars moves into Taurus and Mercury moves into Cancer.

So, the first week of July is pretty busy. Let’s dive right in.

Cosmic Overview

This week we have two planetary sign changes – Mercury moves out of Gemini and into Cancer, and energetic Mars grinds to a halt as he enters slow and steady Taurus.

Mercury in Cancer

On Tuesday, Mercury moves into Cancer. The sign of Cancer is ruled by the ever-changing Moon, and with Mercury in the sign of the crab, our thoughts may shift frequently and may be governed by our current emotional experiences. Since Mercury has no essential dignity in Cancer, you may experience constantly shifting emotional experiences, and you may have difficulty expressing your feelings because Cancer is considered a mute sign. Additionally, Cancer is associated with home and family, so you may find conversations with relatives and an increased focus on your home and current living experiences.

Mars in Taurus

Mars doesn’t care for the sign of Taurus, because it’s sooooo SLOW! Mars likes fast impulsive movement and prefers to act upon intuitive hunches that lead the warrior god to victory.  The earthy realm of Taurus is concerned about the real world, and Mars would prefer not to be bogged down my practical sensibilities.  Why?  Because it’s boring, and Mars hates being bored.

However, even though Mars prefers to be elsewhere, he still needs to perform. In Taurus, Mars is capable and consistent, and while Mars is in the sign of the bull, it’s an excellent time to focus on projects that bring tangible results. Furthermore, Mars in Taurus is extremely stubborn and becomes easily agitated if it feels thwarted by others.  You may need to stay mindful and be as proactive as possible.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, July 4, 2022

Happy Independence Day if you live in the United States. We start the week off with the Moon moving through dutiful Virgo. Virgo is about life management and what you can do to bring order into your life. It’s an excellent day to clean up loose ends, focus on health-related matters, and even get a good workout. During the evening hours, the Moon applies by trine to Uranus.  An unexpected surprise may make your day!

Tuesday, July 5, 2022

After Mars and Mercury switch signs, they form a lovely sextile during the early morning hours.  Mercury sextile Mars is an extremely active aspect, and you can use this energy to focus on projects or objectives that need a boost of energy. You may feel more confident and assertive than you ordinarily do, and it’s easier to convey your thoughts and opinions to others. Mercury sextile Mars is also great if you need to debate an issue.

Wednesday, July 6, 2022

The Moon spends the day moving through fair-and-balanced Libra. It’s an excellent day to focus on relationship matters, especially if you need to repair one. This is also a good day to focus on resolving legal issues or to file legal documents.

Thursday, July 7, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Libra and forms a beneficial trine to Saturn.  It’s a good day to focus on business matters or do the work necessary to level up. Later this evening, be on guard, because the Moon squares Pluto and intense emotions may surface that are hard to control. Try to work through your feelings than reacting to them.

Friday, July 8, 2022

On Friday, the Moon moves through turbulent Scorpio and forms a nasty opposition to Mars shortly before dawn. You may feel agitated and easily annoyed by other peoples behaviors or attitudes. To add insult to injury, the Moon then opposes Uranus and then squares Saturn. Expect the unexpected and you may go through periods of self-doubt.

Saturday, July 9, 2022

Mercury squares Jupiter in Aries. Your overall attitude will be positive and it’s an excellent time to make long-term plans and goals. Mercury square Jupiter is excellent for business transactions and contractual negotiations. Just make sure you read the fine print before signing the dotted line.

Sunday, July 10, 2022

We close the week with the Sun sextile Uranus, which is a pleasant and harmonious aspect. It’s an excellent day to break free from the restraints of your usual routine and do something exciting and outside the box. You can also use this energy to make changes in your life, especially if you feel like your life has been in a rut.

See you next week!

The Astrology Forecast for the Week of June 27, 2022 – July 3, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of June 27, 2022 through July 3, 2022 features six planetary aspects (Mars sextile Saturn, the Sun square Jupiter, Venus sextile Jupiter, Mars square Pluto, Mercury trine Saturn, and Mercury square Neptune), a New Moon in Cancer, and Neptune turning retrograde in Pisces.

The last week of June is an extremely cosmically busy week, so let’s dive right in.

Cosmic Overview

This headliner this week is the New Moon in Cancer, which occurs on June 28th at 10:52 PM EST/7:52 PM PST. The New Moon in Cancer is about new beginnings in Cancer’s domain – home, family, security, and even fertility. It’s a great time to do protection, financial, or pregnancy magic or intentional work.  The New Moon in Cancer is also excellent to begin home repairs or redecorating.

Daily Overview

Monday, June 27, 2022

We start the week off with Mars sextile Saturn in Aquarius. Mars sextile Saturn is all about the grind. This is the perfect time to focus on projects or tasks that require focus and discipline. While this aspect is active, you will be goal oriented and focused on getting results in all aspects of your life. Mars sextile Saturn urges you to focus on building a solid future, even though you may not see immediate results.

Tuesday, June 28, 2022

Venus forms an extremely beneficial aspect to Jupiter in Aries. Venus sextile Jupiter is an optimistic and cheerful aspect. You will enjoy the company of others, and they will enjoy you. This is an excellent time to forge new relationships and friendships. Additionally, Venus sextile Jupiter is a wonderful aspect for financial investments and resolving legal matters in your favor.

Wednesday, June 29, 2022

The energy of the New Moon continues Wednesday, while the Moon continues its trip through the sign of Cancer. The Moon forms a favorable aspect to Uranus in Taurus, and you may feel a little uninspired by your daily life and crave a break from your usual routine. It’s a great day to spend time with close friends, especially those that bring a bit of excitement into your life.

Thursday, June 30, 2022

The Moon spends its last day in Cancer and forms difficult aspects to Mars and Pluto. You may experience power struggles with family members and co-workers. Despite the emotional intensity of today’s energies, avoid acting impulsively and try to be as proactive as possible.

Friday, July 1, 2022

Mars forms a tense square to Pluto in Capricorn. Mars square Pluto is an extremely discordant aspect that often leads to power plays and altercations. You may find that people are highly confrontational and have little self-restraint. Try to avoid people on a power trip, because they will be more out of control than usual.

Saturday, July 2, 2022

During the morning hours, Mercury trines Saturn, and you will find your mind focused on serious matters.  If you need to work on projects that require mental focus, do so during the day, because later Mercury squares Neptune, which is not favorable for practical matters. This evening, be careful of situations that may seem too good to be true, because they probably are.

Sunday, July 3, 2022

We close the week with the Moon moving through dutiful Virgo. It’s a great day to focus on tasks and responsibilities that may have piled up over the past week. The Virgo Moon is also excellent for organizing your schedule, focusing on health concerns, and starting an exercise program.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of June 20, 2022 – June 26, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of June 20, 2022 through June 26, 2022 features two major planetary aspects (Mercury sextile Jupiter, Venus trine Pluto) and two sign changes – the Sun moving into Cancer and Venus moving into social Gemini.

All the astrological activity happens at the beginning of the week, so let’s dive right in.

Cosmic Overview

The Sun moves into the sign of Cancer, and summer in the Northern Hemisphere (winter in the Southern Hemisphere) officially begins on Tuesday at 5:14 AM EST. Cancer season reflects the time of year where we can get in touch with our emotions, repair toxic familial dynamics, and create a secure foundation to build our lives on.

The Moon is the ruler of Cancer, and she sits in fiery, and pushes us towards taking charge of our lives by leaving the past in the rear-view mirror and focusing on building and expanding our lives. In the Cancer season chart (called an ingress chart in astrologese), the Moon applies to a lovely conjunction with Jupiter, and then she trines Mercury. During Cancer season, the chart instructs us to embrace the future, overcome obstacles and limitations, and create networks that help us level up.

Take advantage of this summer season and prepare for a rebirth!

Daily Breakdown

Monday, June 20, 2022

We start the week with a lovely Mercury-Jupiter sextile.  Your thoughts will mainly be positive, and you will notice your mind is sharp and can see the potentials and possibilities that will help you create the life you want to live. Mercury sextile Jupiter is excellent for business activities, and helpful in contract negotiations. Use this energy wisely, because anything you put your mind to will usually be successful.

Tuesday, June 21, 2022

Besides the Sun moving into Cancer and the official start of summer (winter in the southern hemisphere), Venus forms a beneficial trine to Pluto in Capricorn.  It’s a powerful day on the relationship front, because if you look within, you will receive profound insight into your relationships, and what you can do to make them better.  Try not to be overwhelmed by any emotional experiences you may have, because they will ultimately be transformative.

Wednesday, June 22, 2022

On Wednesday, Venus moves out of Taurus and into social Gemini. Whereas Venus in Taurus needs reliable structure, Venus in Gemini needs experiences and plenty of them.  While Venus is in Gemini, you will want to have fun and need people to evoke your intellectual curiosities. You will have a strong urge to be social and connect with as many people as possible. Communicating, in order to relate with others, is a necessity.

Thursday, June 23, 2022

The Moon moves into Taurus, the sign of her exaltation. It’s an excellent day to focus on your finances and put a viable fiscal plan in motion. Since Taurus is a sign associated with pleasure, it’s also a great day for doing something you enjoy.

Friday, June 24, 2022

The Moon continues its monthly trek through Taurus and forms a conjunction with Uranus. It’s best to expect the unexpected, and plans may change at a moment’s notice. Try to avoid acting impulsively, and pause to think things out before you act. You may also find that others easily annoy you, so avoid people that push your buttons.

Saturday, June 25, 2022

The Moon spends its last day in earthy Taurus, and forms a tense square to Saturn during the morning hours. You may go through waves of self-doubt, and people may trigger your insecurities.  Try to push away negative thoughts if they surface.  The good news is that the Moon trines Pluto later Saturday afternoon, and this beneficial trine may help you get your mojo back.

Sunday, June 26, 2022

We close the week with the Moon moving through Gemini, conjoining Venus and forming a sextile to Jupiter in Aries. It’s an excellent day to leave behind the problems and responsibilities of the real world and have a little bit of good fun.  You will be optimistic, and you will enjoy the company of others. The good news is that this energy will continue through the bulk of next week.

See you then!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of June 13, 2022 – June 19, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of June 13, 2022 through June 19, 2022 features four major aspects (Sun trine Saturn, Sun square Neptune, Venus square Saturn, Venus square Neptune), a Full Moon in Sagittarius, and Mercury moves out of Taurus and back into Gemini.

So, after two weeks of slow cosmic activity, the heavens speed up, and we get a pretty busy week.

Let’s dive right in…

Cosmic Overview

This week, we have a Full Moon in Sagittarius, which occurs on Tuesday, June 14, 2022 at 7:52 AM EST/4:52 AM PST. The Full Moon in Sagittarius reflects the need to let go of areas governed by the sign they are in, and in the case of Sagittarius, it’s our beliefs that are on the chopping block.  Letting go of beliefs can be a daunting task, because they have often been a main feature of our personal psychology. However, now is the time for you to let go of outdated beliefs that may no longer be useful, and may be hindering your personal growth.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, June 13, 2022

We start the week off with Mercury moving back into Gemini after he slipped back into Taurus during his retrograde cycle. Mercury in Gemini is perfect for fun in the sun, frolicking on the beach, and socializing with others.  Mercury moving into Gemini dovetails into the Full Moon in the opposite sign of Sagittarius. So, it may be difficult to focus on practical duties and responsibilities, because you will feel the urge to have some fun.

Tuesday, June 14, 2022

Besides the Full Moon, which occurs a few hours after dawn, the Moon continues to move through Sagittarius and squares Neptune in Aquarius. You may suffer from morning brain fog and need to be careful when making decisions throughout the morning hours. Your imagination will be fruitful, but it may be hard to focus on serious concerns.  The good news is that later in the day, the Moon leaves the sign of the archer and moves into Capricorn, and your sensibilities should return.

The Moon moves through Capricorn and applies to a tense square to Mars in Aries. You may feel easily agitated by people who are shirking their responsibilities or not pulling their own weight.  Try to avoid arguments as much as possible, and be proactive. Power struggles, no matter how appealing they may seem, will not work to your advantage.

Thursday, June 16, 2022

On Thursday, we have a collusion of opposites, as the Sun trines productive Saturn and squares befuddling Neptune. You may feel the urge to get things done, but outside forces may alter your plans. Try to focus on tasks that give you the most benefit, and leave the rest for a more favorable astrological cycle.

Friday, June 17, 2022

The Moon moves through social Aquarius, and it’s a great day to spend time with your friends and like-minded individuals. Your mood should be optimistic, and you will enjoy the company of others. Later in the day, you may find yourself mildly annoyed by unexpected events as the Moon squares Uranus.

Saturday, June 18, 2022

Venus in Taurus squares Saturn in Aquarius. You may go through moments of feeling alone and isolated from the rest of the world, and you may have difficulties relating to others. For those in relationships, seek solutions to your problems and look inward for answers on how to improve your connection to others.

Sunday, June 19, 2022

We close the week out with a lovely sextile between Venus and Neptune. Your imagination will be kicked into high gear, and it’s a great day to work on creative projects. You can also use this energy to appreciate art, music, and movies. Relationships and romance also get a boost while this aspect is active.

See you next week!

The astrology forecast for the week of June 6, 2022 through June 12, 2022 features two major planetary aspects – Mercury trine Pluto and Venus conjoin Uranus.

And that’s it!

So, it’s going to be another slow week in the cosmos with all the activity of the week occurring on the weekend. Since it’s such a light week, let’s dive into the daily breakdown.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, June 6, 2022

We start the week off with the Moon moving through Virgo. It’s monthly tune-up time, and it’s a great time to look at your daily life and make changes and adjustments if necessary. The Moon in Virgo is also excellent for health checkups and starting an exercise or wellness program.

Tuesday, June 7, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Virgo and forms a lovely trine to Uranus. It’s an excellent time to explore new activities and opportunities. Expect the unexpected, but since the aspect is a trine, surprises and changes may be to your benefit.  If new opportunities are presented, they will likely pay off.

Wednesday, June 8, 2022

The Moon moves out of Virgo and into Libra right before noon, and the sign of Libra urges us to look at your relationships, and do what you can to improve them. Since the Moon opposes Jupiter, you will be in a positive state of mind, which can help you repair things if necessary.  You may also spend the day focusing on your goals and aspiration.

Thursday, June 9, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Libra and opposes Mars in Aries. You may find that you are at odds with others, especially if you find them uncooperative. You may feel aggravated and easily angered. Avoid reacting impulsively, and stay in your own lane as much as possible.

Friday, June 10, 2022

On Friday, we have our first aspect of the week, as Mercury forms a productive trine to Pluto in Capricorn.  You will be concerned with your inner world and ways to understand yourself better.  If you dig deep enough, you may discover potentials you never knew existed before.  Take advantage of latent talents, because they can help move you to the next level.

Saturday, June 11, 2022

Venus conjoins Uranus in Taurus. You may feel a bit restless and crave some excitement in your life. If you’ve felt smothered in your relationships, there may be an urge to break free and do your own thing. It’s an excellent weekend to spend some time alone, working on yourself, and getting in touch with your inner being, your wants, and your desires.  Newfound self-discoveries may surprise you.

Sunday, June 12, 2022

We close the week with the Moon moving through Scorpio, and she forms a nasty square to Saturn. You may feel isolated, misunderstood, and have moments of insecurity and self-doubt.  Try to push away negative thoughts if they surface.  Later in the day, the Moon opposes Mercury, and communication issues with others may easily occur.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of May 30, 2022 – June 5, 2022

After one hell of a busy month, the month of May closes, and June begins with a striking slowdown in the cosmos. This week we have no major planetary aspects, but we do have a New Moon in Gemini, Mercury turning direct, and Saturn turning retrograde in Aquarius.

Let’s dive right in…

Cosmic Overview

This week the biggest newsmaker is the New Moon in Gemini that occurs on Memorial Day. This is the first lunation is six weeks where its beneficial to do intention or magical work. Since the Moon makes favorable aspects, it’s the perfect time to set goals, long-term objectives, and pursue your agenda.

Gemini is an air sign, so this is an auspicious time to do communication magic, including reopening the lines of communication with those whom you have lost touch. Spells can include written petitions, feathers, smoke, and incantations.  Also, Gemini is great for business and commerce magic.  Just keep in mind that Mercury is retrograde until June 3rd. Hold off on signing documents or legal agreements until then.

Daily Overview

Monday, May 30, 2022

Before I get into the astrology for Monday, let’s take a moment to thank those that have served in the military to protect us and our personal freedoms.  Thank you for your service! Today, we have a New Moon in Gemini. This is great for gatherings, and the overall energy for the day is positive. If you need to open the lines of communication with someone to clean up your side of the street, make amends, or discuss something sensitive, it’s a great day to do so.

Tuesday, May 31, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Gemini and forms a befuddling square to Neptune. Communication snafus are likely, and you may have difficulties expressing yourself to others. Try to avoid making major decisions, especially if they are emotionally based.  The good news is that the Moon will then trine stable Saturn, and the fog should lift, and clearer minds will prevail.

Wednesday, June 1, 2022

The Moon moves through Cancer during the morning hours and aspects Jupiter and Venus. If you need to get things done, take advantage of the beneficial energy of both benefics because later in the day the Moon squares Mars and tensions will likely rise. Avoid negativistic people and try not to react to other people’s actions.

Thursday, June 2, 2022

The Moon makes a favorable aspect to Uranus.  It’s an excellent day to surround yourself with people that excite and inspire you.  If your life has been too monotonous, do something different that piques your curiosities. If you want to make changes to your home or redecorate, now is the perfect time to add new décor and enliven your surroundings.  Just make sure you wait until tomorrow if you want to purchase something major.

Friday, June 3, 2022

At long last, Mercury turns direct in Taurus. It’s the perfect day to process the information that you have learned over the past three weeks and make the changes in your life that will make it more fulfilling. Communication will slowly improve, and you can begin to make decisions and choices, but do so mindfully because Mercury remains in shadow until June 19th.

Saturday, June 4, 2022

As one planet goes direct, another goes retrograde.  Today, Saturn turns retrograde in Aquarius. This is a four-month cycle of reflecting on your position in the world, and whether your career needs are currently being met.  While Saturn is retrograde, doing the right thing (often not the popular thing) and putting forth the necessary effort leads to long-term rewards.

Sunday, June 5, 2022

We close the week with the Moon moving through Leo forming difficult aspects to Saturn and Mercury.  You may go through feelings of self-doubt and loneliness, and your interactions with others may be tense. Push away negative thoughts if they surface and remember that tomorrow is another day.

See you next week!
