Astrology Forecast for the Week of January 24, 2022 – January 30, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of January 24, 2022 through January 30, 2022 features two major aspects (Mercury conjunct Pluto, Sun square Uranus), two sign changes (Mars in Capricorn, Mercury Rx in Capricorn) and Venus turns direct.

It’s going to be a busy week. So, without further ado…

Cosmic Overview

This week we have two sign changes – Mars moves out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn, and Mercury has unfinished business as he retrogrades back into the sign of the sea goat. So, there is a lot of Capricorn energy we will still be working through, despite the Sun having moved into Aquarius.

Capricorn is an earth sign. It likes things to be solid, secure, and stable, and is concerned with tangible reality. So, any planet that moves through the sign of the goat will express itself in Capricornian ways.

Mars is an action planet. He goes out into the world and gets you what you want, and is even willing to fight for it. However, rather than approaching things impulsively, Mars is strategic and has tenacity in earthy Capricorn. In Capricorn, Mars is concerned with position and status and is willing to work nonstop to achieve what he desires. While Mas is in the sign of the sea-goat, you can take advantage of Capricornian discipline and focus on projects that matter, helping push you to the next level. This is where you need to strategize your long game and look towards your big picture objectives.

Now, on to Mercury.

Mercury reversed course on January 14, 2022 in the sign of Aquarius. However, this week he will retrograde back into Capricorn. Whereas Aquarius is concerned with making your life better, Mercury moving back into Capricorn ensures you have all the facts straight. Mercury’s reflective mode in Capricorn will help Mars create better strategies that will help you once Mercury turns direct. Use this period to look at your life, stick to the facts, and then develop a plan of action (Mercury being copresent with Mars) to get the results you ultimately desire.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, January 24, 2022

We start the week off with Mars moving into Capricorn.  If you have projects to complete that need focus and tenacity, the warrior god will help you get it accomplished. Otherwise, this is an excellent cycle (Mars remains in Capricorn until March 6th) to focus on long-term objects and plans.  Focus on the big picture!

Tuesday, January 25, 2022

Besides Mercury retrograding back into Capricorn, the Moon moves through turbulent Scorpio and opposes Uranus. You may feel anxious throughout the day, especially if you feel that outside forces are obstructing your progress. Try to remain as proactive as possible, and use your wise mind rather than react emotionally.

Wednesday, January 26, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Scorpio and makes beneficial aspects to Neptune, Pluto, and Mercury Rx. Your creative juices will flow steadily, so it’s the perfect day to work on projects that inspire and feed your soul. Later in the day, you will have the opportunity to clear up any communication snafus that occurred earlier in the week.

Thursday, January 27, 2022

Today, the Moon enters fiery Sagittarius. It’s an excellent day to do things that you enjoy and bring out your adventurous spirit. The Moon aspects beneficial Jupiter, which should give you a dose of optimism, and your mood should be positive. However, try not to be excessive, because Jupiter can get out of control if left unchecked.

Friday, January 28, 2022

Mercury conjoins Pluto in Capricorn during the early morning hours. Since Mercury is retched out, this is an auspicious day to look within for answers, rather than finding solutions to your problems in the world. You may want to take some time to do journaling work or find creative ways to express yourself. Avoid being harsh with yourself over the past mistakes or problems, because it’s not helpful and it’s disempowering.

Saturday, January 29, 2022

Great news! After 40 long days and nights, Venus turns direct in Capricorn. If you’ve experienced relationship issues over the past month and a half, matters will begin to improve.  However, take some time to review your recent relationship experiences and use them as a learning experience. Also, if you’ve held off on making investments or major purchases, continue to refrain until after Mercury turns direct next week.

Sunday, January 30, 2022

We close the week with the Sun forming a tense square to Uranus in Taurus. Sun square Uranus is extremely disruptive, and sudden changes may leave you feeling frustrated or anxious. Be careful when interacting with others, because hard Sun-Uranus aspects can be discordant and provoke arguments. Expect the unexpected!

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of January 17, 2022 through January 23, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of January 17, 2022 through January 23, 2022 features a Full Moon in Cancer, Uranus stationing direct in Taurus, a Sun-Mercury conjunction, and the end of Capricorn as we usher in Aquarius season.

There is not much planetary action this week, so let’s dive in.

Cosmic Overview

The Full Moon occurs in Cancer this week at 6:48 PM EST/3:48 PM PST. This Full Moon is potent because it opposes Pluto in Capricorn. The Full Moon opposing Pluto can bring up toxic familial drama or emotional situations where you have lost your power to deal with them internally or externally. Full Moons are emotionally intense, but this one is off the chain. So, get prepared!

Astro Magic Pro Tip:

Cancer Full Moons are an auspicious time to work through family of origin issues or to let go of emotional pain and hurts. It’s also an excellent time for healing work and ridding yourself of health issues. So, if you need to let go of something emotional, this is the Full Moon to get it done, once and for all.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, January 17, 2022

The Moon moves through emotional Cancer and opposes Pluto in Capricorn. The Moon is our need for security, and opposed to Pluto, we feel anything but secure. Since an opposition is an aspect that propels us to deal with things, this could lead to tense encounters and power plays. Try to work towards compromises, rather than worsen matters.

Tuesday, January 18, 2022

The Moon moves through tenaciously stubborn Leo and opposes Mercury Rx and squares Uranus. Communication issues with others may be a factor throughout the day. Try to learn about others’ differences rather than simply react to them. This evening, expect the unexpected as the Moon squares Uranus.

Wednesday, January 19, 2022

Wednesday is the first day of Aquarius season, and it’s time to focus on what we can do to make our lives better. The sign of Aquarius helps us think outside the box and develop strategies that will help improve the quality of our lives. Also, over the next month, you may experience a bit of cabin fever and get the urge to socialize with friends and associates.,

Thursday, January 20, 2022

The Moon moves through dutiful Virgo and aspects Jupiter. Therefore, the tone for the day should be optimistic. Focus on tying up loose ends and clearing tasks off your to-do list. Since Mercury, the ruler of Virgo is retrograde, you may receive information that you can use to your advantage once Mercury turns direct in February.

Friday, January 21, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Virgo and trines Venus retrograde and Uranus in Taurus, forming a lucky grand trine. It’s a great day to look at your problem areas and approach them differently. If you need to make changes in your life, this grand trine can help you get optimal results.

Saturday, January 22, 2022

The Moon spends its last day in productive Virgo, before moving into Libra later this afternoon. It’s the perfect day to get things done, so focus on important matters. Also, if you are in a relationship, a little love and romance may fill up your evening hours.

Sunday, January 23, 2022

The Sun conjoins Mercury Rx in Aquarius. This conjunction is the halfway point of the Mercury retrograde cycle. It’s an auspicious day for self-reflection and inner examination. Insights you receive today may have long-term results.

See you next week!

The Astrology Forecast for the Week of January 10, 2022 – January 16, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of January 10, 2022 through January 16, 2022 features three major aspects (Sun trine Neptune, Mars square Neptune, and the Sun conjoined to Pluto) and Mercury turns retrograde in Aquarius.

So, with all the Neptunian energy and with the inclusion of Mercury retrograde, make sure you verify everything before making decisions, because the truth may be elusive and hard to grasp.

Let’s dive into the forecast!

Cosmic Overview:

This week, Mercury joins the love goddess (Venus) by turning retrograde in Aquarius on Friday morning. Mercury will remain retrograde until February 3, 2022.

At its root, the sign of Aquarius is about how we can improve our lives.  Aquarius is about progress and pushing society forward, rather than staying stuck in the present or being bound to the past. Mercury moving through Aquarius augurs a time when we should focus on areas where we can improve our lives or focus on what needs to be fixed or repaired. Mercury turning retrograde in Aquarius helps us look at the decisions and choices we have made over the past three months that may be preventing our growth. This gives us the chance to course correct if necessary.  The silver lining is that with Mercury being retrograde, we can see the areas that need to be fixed easier.

Mercury retrogrades before it can complete its conjunction to Saturn, but it will remain within orb for the next week. Mercury conjoined to Saturn is frustrating and can lead to negative mindsets. It may be difficult to communicate and express yourself to others. So, try to push away negative thoughts as they surface, and you may need to practice some self-care to manage your emotions.

Otherwise, traditional Mercury retrograde warnings are applicable.  Make sure you back up electronic devices, finalize plans, and sign documents before the retrograde begins. Here is a checklist to help you during the retrograde cycle.

Mercury Rx Dirty Dozen! Tips and Tricks to Wrangling the Trickster God

Let’s begin with the recommendations (Notice I didn’t use the lists of should or should not?  Mainly because we should never should on ourselves).

  1. Make sure you go over anything contractual thoroughly.  Make sure all the i’s are dotted, and all the t’s are crossed. If you can get away with it, wait until after the retrograde is over to sign on the dotted line. 
  2. Avoid starting anything new.  New projects tend to have communication problems and mishaps when initiated during this process.
  3. Put a watch on your tongue.  (If it is not worth saying, don’t say it)
  4. Check your vehicles for any potential problems.  Before Mercury goes retrograde is the best time for a service call.
  5. Avoid buying real estate or renting apartments.  Usually, this means you are just going to move again during a future Mercury Rx.
  6. Using mail delivery services that offer tracking and insurance.
  7. Check, recheck, and check again any travel plans you have or appointments that are on the books.
  8. If you do travel, don’t take anything of importance or value. Only bring items that you do not care if they are lost or stolen.
  9. Expect people from the past to resurface.  However, once they do crawl out of whatever cavern they came from, proceed with caution.
  10. Back up all electronic devices.
  11. Avoid buying an automobile. 
  12. Mercury Rx is an excellent time to scour places (online and offline) for great deals!

Now, that is some list.  But, if you want to avoid the most annoying tricks Mercury has up his sleeve, it is wise to pay close attention and organize (Mercury loves that word) accordingly.

Daily Breakdown:

Monday, January 10, 2022

We start the week off with the Sun forming a lovely sextile to Neptune in Pisces. You will find that you are more receptive to the needs of others, and willing to help the unfortunate when possible.  Also, friends may lean on you for emotional support.  However, you may need to wear a garlic necklace to repel emotional vampires.

Tuesday, January 11, 2022

Mars forms a difficult square to Neptune. Your energy levels will be low, which may dampen your spirits and attempt to put out your flame. For many, Mars square Neptune provokes feelings of doubt, and you may feel ineffective dealing with your daily challenges. Avoid any form of underhanded or deceptive behavior.  Regardless of your motives, it will lead to blow back and consequences.

Wednesday, January 12, 2022

After the tricky and self-defeating energies on Tuesday, Wednesday brings us the Moon moving through earthy Taurus – the sign of her exaltation. It’s an excellent day to do self-care and tend to your personal needs. You may want to spend some time relaxing or engaging in pleasurable activities. Treat yourself to something you enjoy.

Thursday, January 13, 2022

The Moon spends its first full day in mercurial Gemini and forms a lovely trine to the trickster god. Since Mercury turns retrograde tomorrow, make sure you back up your computer and electronic devices. Also, sign documents and have any conversation that needs to be handled before it’s less advantageous to do so. This evening is an excellent time to socialize and spend time with family and friends.

Friday, January 14, 2022

As if Mercury Rx (yes, that starts today) is not enough befuddlement for the day, the Moon in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces. The Moon square Neptune is extremely confusing, and you need to check and verify everything before believing it as the truth. Be careful of your intuitive hunches, because they may be influenced by fears and paranoias rather than spirit.

Saturday, January 15, 2022

The Moon moves into Cancer during the morning hours and forms a trine to lucky Jupiter. It should be a positive day that is relaxing, and fun filled. So, kick back and do things you enjoy, and take a break from your usual routine. Since the Moon is in Cancer, it’s also an auspicious day to do some redecorating or do something to beautify your home.

Sunday, January 16, 2022

We close the week with the Sun conjoining transformative Pluto in Capricorn. Sometimes, to stand in your power, you have to dig deep. This can bring up uncomfortable feelings or reveal inner truths that may be unsettling and difficult to face. However, slaying your inner demons can help you level up.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast For the week of January 3, 2022 – January 9, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of January 3, 2022 through January 9, 2022 features only two (yes, you read that right) astrological aspects – Venus Rx sextile Neptune and the Sun conjunct Venus Rx.

So, it’s going to be a light week in the cosmos, and since Venus is the only planet making aspects, let’s dive into the daily breakdown.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, January 3, 2022

It’s not surprising that we return from the holiday season, and the Moon is making its monthly trip through Capricorn. It’s an excellent day to hit the ground running and focus on your objectives by getting things done.  Since we are still in the sign of the New Moon, you still have time to set your intentions for the New Year before the Moon moves into Aquarius on Monday afternoon.

Tuesday, January 4, 2022

The Moon moves through Aquarius and conjoins Saturn and squares Uranus.  Unexpected situations may leave you rattled and throw a monkey wrench into your day. This could ultimately affect your mood and lead to periods of self-doubt. Push past negative thoughts and stay focused on your game plan.

Wednesday, January 5, 2022

On Wednesday, we have our first Venusian aspect of the week, as Venus Rx sextiles Neptune in Pisces. Venus sextile Neptune is an easy aspect, especially if you are looking for a little romance in your relationships. It’s an excellent day to focus on your partners needs and use this helpful energy to connect on a deeper level. If you’ve been going through relationship frustrations because of the retrograde, this is an auspicious time to work through your issues, because Neptune will help minimize your (and your partners) ego.

Thursday, January 6, 2022

The Moon moves through Pisces and forms lovely sextiles to Uranus and the Sun. It’s an excellent day to step away from the daily grind and do something fun and exciting with your tribe. In fact, unexpected opportunities may come out of your social and professional connections. Also, watch out for new people on the scene, they may inspire and invigorate you.

Friday, January 7, 2022

The Moon continues its trek through Pisces and conjoins Neptune. Communication with others will be challenging, because it will be hard to stay focused on mundane matters. Focus on issues that matter, and leave the heavy lifting for another day. Moreover, you will be sensitive to the moods of others. So, it may be best to stay away from negative people, or they may impact your mood or try to suck out your soul.

Saturday, January 8, 2022

The Sun conjoins Venus Rx in Capricorn. The Sun and Venus will bring out your social urges, and if you are in a relationship, it’s a great day to spend time with your partner. However, since the love goddess (Venus) is retrograde, it’s the perfect time to focus on the areas of your relationship that need improvement. If you need to have a difficult conversation, now is the time, because it will be easier to reach a mutually beneficial agreement.

Sunday, January 9, 2022

We close the week with the Moon moving through energetic Aries. It’s a perfect day to get things done, especially projects that need extra gumption. Later in the day, the Moon applies to a square to Pluto in Capricorn. Avoid people who are power hungry or like to control everything.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of December 20, 2021 – December 26, 2021

Yule log chocolate cake with chocolate frosting for Christmas

The astrology forecast for the week of December 20, 2021 thru December 26, 2021 features four major aspects (Mercury trine Uranus, Saturn square Uranus, Venus Rx conjunct Pluto, and Mercury sextile Neptune) and the beginning of Capricorn season.

Since a lot is going on, let’s get on with the show.

Cosmic Overview

The cosmic overview’s focus is something we have covered for the past year – Saturn square Uranus.

This week we have the final showdown between Saturn and Uranus. But keep in mind that planetary aspects have orbs, and Saturn square Uranus will continue to be active throughout 2022. However, they will never reach an exact aspect again until 2032, when they will conjoin in late Gemini.

In astrology, Saturn symbolizes the structures in our lives, whether that be the government, our careers, or our station in life. Saturn seeks stability, so he likes to hold onto things and doesn’t like change. On the other hand, Uranus likes progress, is rebellious, and likes to shake up the system. He finds the ‘establishment’ boring and, at its worst, corrupt. Since this aspect is a square, there is enormous tension between these two planets.  If you lean towards the Saturn side of the square, change can be seen as suspect, disruptive, and chaotic. If you lean towards Uranus, you will see structure as limiting, restrictive, and only concerned with the selfish need to hold onto power and authority.

So, this gives you a whiff of the reason why the political landscape is currently so toxic!

Working with this aspect is not easy. It’s tough work, and it requires a lot of reflection and honesty. So naturally, based on our personal charts, we will gravitate to one side of the aspect or the other.  However, the way to work with Saturn square Uranus proactively is to look at the areas of your life that need change and devise a plan to enact those changes in a way that you feel comfortable. A quick way to look at what needs to change is to look at the houses Saturn and Uranus are transiting in your chart. Here is a cheat sheet that will help you with the keywords. 

Just remember, the more you work with the planets, the easier they are to manage. It’s when you deny giving them attention and pretend they do not exist; they become troublesome.

Now, on with the forecast…

Daily Breakdown

Monday, December 20, 2021

We start the week with a beneficial trine between Mercury in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. It’s an excellent day to think outside the box and develop new solutions to old problems.  You will find your intuition increased, which will help you make decisions. New ideas will be tantalizing and may lead you down a new path of discovery.

Tuesday, December 21, 2021

Happy Yule! On Tuesday, we leave Sagittarius behind and settle into the season of the sea-goat. Capricorn is a cardinal sign that likes to make things happen. So, it’s not surprising that we make New Year’s resolutions or start new things during Capricorn season. To put it more simply, Capricorn season is about taking care of business (personal and professional), and to achieve a prosperous New Year, you must plant the seeds.  Just make sure what you plant will be fruitful.

Wednesday, December 22, 2021

The Moon spends its first full day in fiery Leo. During the morning hours, the Moon trines Mars, and if used correctly, this will give you a much-needed energy boost. However, expect frustrations and unexpected surprises during the afternoon as the Moon activates the upcoming square between Saturn and Uranus. Be proactive, not reactive.

Thursday, December 23, 2021

The Moon continues its trek through Leo, and you may need a ‘do you’ day before the holiday madness begins.  So, have a bit of fun and enjoy yourself. Also, a bit of pampering and self-care never hurt anyone.

Friday, December 24, 2021

Besides Saturn squaring Uranus (see above), the Moon moves into diligent Virgo during the early morning hours.  The Moon forms a lovely trine to the Sun in Capricorn, which is a harmonious aspect for getting things done.  However, get all your holiday shopping and chores done as early as possible, because this evening the Moon squares discordant Mars.

Saturday, December 25, 2021

Merry Christmas to all that celebrate!

I feel like the Grinch that stole Christmas, because the cosmic energy is problematic and tense. Today, Venus retrograde conjoins Pluto in Capricorn. Relationships that are strained may experience the brunt of this aspect, because Venus conjunct Pluto signifies the need for change in relationships. Your emotions may be intense, and you may need to manage them cautiously. Moreover, ignoring relationship problems out of fear of change could lead to further complications. Avoid manipulation tactics even if you feel justified.

Sunday, December 26, 2021

We close the week with a harmonious sextile between Mercury in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces.  After an intense holiday, you may need a break to get in touch with your personal thoughts and feelings, and Mercury sextile Neptune can provide deep insight and understanding. If need be, go to your quiet place and listen to your gut; it will not misguide you.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast For the Week of December 13, 2021 – December 19, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of December 13, 2021 through December 19, 2021 features two sign changes (Mars and Mercury), a Full Moon in Gemini, Venus turning retrograde in Capricorn, and an extremely positive aspect between the Sun and Jupiter.

We have a lot to cover, so let’s dive right in!

Cosmic Overview

The cosmic event of the week is Venus turning retrograde in Capricorn on Sunday. Relationships are under the gun, and Venus continues to move backwards throughout the month of January (or at least until January 29th). Further, Venus remains copresent with Pluto, which adds to the intensity of this Venus cycle. So, to help you stay on track, I’ve included a checklist – and who doesn’t like a checklist?

7 Point Checklist for Venus Retrograde

  1. Review Relationships – During Venus retrograde, our major relationships are under review. It’s time to do a little emotional inventory and decide the current status of your relationships and whether changes need to be made.
  2. Boundaries – Over time, relationships can get out of control. We can let things slide by thinking that they are ‘one time’ events and before you know it, they are part of the relationship dynamic. Sometimes you need boundaries! In my experience as a coach, people are often afraid of boundaries because they fear losing the relationship. But I’ve got a newsflash – if someone exits a relationship because of boundaries, then the relationship had a faulty foundation. Boundaries are tools to use to prevent problems from flaring up. They are about preservation, not dissolution.
  3. Balance – Are you putting more effort into your relationship than your partner? If so, you need to find some balance. Nobody wants to be taken advantage of, disrespected, or taken for granted. Relationships that suffer from balance problems usually end up with a partner becoming resentful, and there is nothing more toxic to a relationship than resentment.
  4. Unrealistic Expectations: Expectations can be a major problem in relationships, because they can lead to buyers’ remorse. Often people believe a relationship is headed somewhere when it is not. So, if you are looking for structure, foundation, long-term commitment, and eventually getting married, and your partner isn’t interested in taking on that type of relationship, problems will occur. Use Venus retrograde to find out if you are aligned with your partner, and if not, it might be time to SWIPE RIGHT.
  5. Fantasy or Reality: This is a close cousin to expectations, except it can include a ton of other (some dark) things. Let me cut to the chase – if you think your partner will magically change one day and want the same things that you do, then Venus retrograde may be troubling. Or if you believe your male friend of five years will one day wake up and realize he wants you, then Venus Rx could be an eye-opening experience revealed in March, likely with some unsettling news. It’s time to view relationships honestly, and accept them for what they are, not what you want them to be.
  6. The Young and the Ex’s: All retrogrades mean it’s time to review the past, and Venus is no exception. Often former relationship partners resurface, especially if there was a lack of closure. Sometimes our old feelings may lead us to question whether there is a future? However, in most cases, former relationships that resurface have a purpose: to show you how much you have grown. Remember, there is a reason your ex is an ex, and it’s often best to pass them by and leave them in the rear-view mirror.
  7. Money, Money, Money – In addition to love, Venus rules money. While Venus is retrograde, it’s the perfect time to put your finances into perspective.  Even if you are doing well, it never hurts to balance your checkbook, renegotiate your interest rates, and create a plan to reduce your debt. One thing to avoid during Venus retrograde is making investments.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, December 13, 2021

On Monday, we have two sign changes.  Mars moves out of his own sign of Scorpio and into Sagittarius, and Mercury flies down from heavenly Sagittarius and lands in Capricorn.

Mars in Sagittarius urges you to look at the areas of your life where you feel hindered or encumbered, and asks you to break free so that life can again inspire you. This is an excellent time to do all you can to live your best life. Focus on what you can do to create a better tomorrow, and leave the past behind.

A few hours later, Mercury moves into Capricorn. Mercury in Capricorn needs to see results. So, Mercury moving into Capricorn is excellent to help you make the right decisions.  Mercury in Capricorn urges you to take the lessons from the past and use this knowledge to make better decisions about the future. The only requirement is to proceed slowly and think things out.

Tuesday, December 14, 2021

The Moon moves into earthy Taurus during the early morning hours. It’s time to take a few days and enjoy the pleasures of life. Do something just for you that will help you rest and relax. Also, it’s the time of the month to indulge a little, so enjoy something spectacularly decadent.

Wednesday, December 15, 2021

The Moon continues its trip through Taurus and forms a sextile to Neptune. You will find that you are more sensitive to the needs of others and are more compassionate towards people in need. However, you may need to avoid negative people, or they may try to suck out your soul.

Thursday, December 16, 2021

The Moon spends its final day in Taurus and forms aspects to both benefics, Venus and Jupiter. It’s an excellent day for financial investment decisions before Venus turns retrograde this weekend. However, make sure your decisions are sound, because Jupiter can get carried away and excessive.

Friday, December 17, 2021

The Moon spends its first full day in social Gemini. It’s an excellent day to socialize and share ideas with friends and associates.  If you need to make a major decision, the Moon forms a lovely trine to Saturn in Aquarius, which gives you the stability and structure to make your choices pay off.

Saturday, December 18, 2021

The Full Moon occurs today in mercurial Gemini.  Expect your mind to be in overdrive mode over the next few days. Since this Full Moon is in trine to expansive Jupiter, it’s necessary to focus on developing a broader understanding of the world around you, rather than only seeing things from your personal viewpoint. Seek wisdom, not judgment!

Sunday, December 19, 2021

Sunday is one of the most positive days of the year, since the Sun forms a beautiful sextile to Jupiter, and you should take advantage of it.  It’s time to put the follies of the past year in the rear-view mirror and think positively about the future. Also, it’s an excellent day to plan out your New Year’s goals and intentions.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of December 6, 2021 – December 12, 2021

Young couple holding broken heart against grey background

The astrology forecast for Week of December 6, 2021 through December 12, 2021 features 6 planetary aspects (Mars sextile Pluto, Mercury square Neptune, Mars square Jupiter, Venus conjunct Pluto, Mercury sextile Jupiter, and the Sun square Neptune.) So, it’s going to be a busy week with a lot of conflicting energy. When we have this amount of energy, I recommend getting plenty of rest, eat healthy foods, move your body, and hydrate.

So, without further ado, let’s get on with the show!

Cosmic Overview

The aspect of the week is Venus conjunct Pluto, which occurs on Saturday. Venus conjunct Pluto is significant because she doesn’t pass on by and the energies diminish in a few days, like she normally would. Instead, Venus remains in close to Pluto for an entire month because she is moving slowly, and she is about to turn retrograde on December 19th.

Venus conjunct Pluto is an intense aspect, and for relationships with a faulty foundation, it can be troubling. Often the aspect presents as difficulty accepting relationships as they are, and you may try to force a relationship to become what you would like it to be. Sometimes, your partner may not have the ability, tenacity, or desire to meet your needs, and this can be difficult to acknowledge or accept.

Another way this aspect expresses itself is through insecurities. Insecurities may lead to dark feelings, such as jealousy and bitterness. However, you need to avoid manipulation tactics, because they may blow up in your face and worsen matters.

The best way to deal with Venus conjunct Pluto is to accept things as they are. This may mean accepting that a relationship has ended, and you need to move on, or you may need to accept that a relationship is ending, and that guilt, coercion, or obsession will not fix it. Instead, you may need to simply feel your emotions and grieve.

This can be tough, but sometimes when something is over, it’s just over.

Now, on with the forecast…

Daily Breakdown

Monday, December 6, 2021

We start the week with a lovely sextile between Mars and Pluto. This is an excellent time to focus on your goals for 2022 and have the energy to get results. However, focus not on the small stuff, but on big dynamic changes and ambitions. For example, don’t aim on getting a new job, focus on new career ambitions and level up. The more energy you put into your goals, the more potential you have to succeed at achieving them.

Tuesday, December 7, 2021

On Tuesday, Mercury forms a perplexing square to Neptune in Pisces.  Choose your words wisely, because people may confuse what you say, misinterpret your meaning and intentions, or may not pay close attention. Likewise, it’s equally easy for you to become confused in your conversations with others.  This is not the best time to make critical decisions, because your faculties will not be razor sharp.

Wednesday, December 8, 2021

As Mars begins his exit out of the sign of Scorpio, he forms a square to Jupiter in Aquarius.

Try to avoid acting impulsively while this aspect is active, because often, we leap before thinking things out. Stick to the facts and be proactive. Despite your best intentions, avoid taking on more than you can handle, because it may lead to burnout. Taking risks is not advised at this time.

Thursday, December 9, 2021

On Thursday, the Moon moves into Pisces. You will feel in tune to those around you, and may even tap into their emotional needs. It’s the perfect day to do charitable work and check on those in need. Sometimes reaching out to those struggling and letting them know you care is the best help they can receive.

Friday, December 10, 2021

The Moon continues its trip through Pisces and forms a beneficial aspect to Uranus. The Moon sextile Uranus tells us to shake up the morning routine by doing something different. This could be experimenting with a new exercise program, using alternative forms of meditation, or simply ordering a different drink from your favorite coffee shop. Trying new things will keep your life fresh and your soul invigorated.

Later this evening, the Moon conjoins Neptune, and this is excellent for spiritual work, music, or just a bit of relaxation. Pay close attention to your dreams, they may be trying to tell you something.

Saturday, December 11, 2021

Besides Venus conjoining Pluto (see above), we have a lovely aspect between Mercury in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Aquarius. Like the energy at the beginning of the week, Mercury sextile Jupiter is about looking at the big picture and putting together a plan to achieve your hopes and wishes.  You will understand your life with more perspective, and this will help you sort through your options. Mercury sextile Jupiter is also favorable for business, especially if it involves signing contracts or negotiations.

Sunday, December 12, 2021

Finally, the week closes with a bewildering aspect between the Sun and Neptune.  Sun square Neptune is a low energy aspect that is confusing and comes with a side dish of brain fog. Avoid working on projects that need focus and determination because the gas tank is empty. Instead, do what needs to be done, and leave the rest for another day.

See you next week…

Astrology Forecast for the Week of November 29,2021 – December 5, 2021

Solar Eclipse “Elements of this image furnished by NASA “

After a week of a cosmic slowdown, the heavenly machine churns up again.  This week have four major aspects (Mars trine Neptune, Mercury sextile Saturn, Venus sextile Neptune, and Sun sextile Saturn), and a solar eclipse in Sagittarius.

Cosmic Overview:

First, all the major aspects this week are relatively light. The only thing that is peculiar is that they involve two planets that really don’t like each other – Saturn and Neptune.  Saturn is interested in the physical world, which is what you can observe, do, and accomplish. He requires effort and determination.  Neptune is interested in the ‘other world’, meaning everything beyond the physical. In Neptune’s world, there is no concept of time, reality, or rules; everything is fluid.  So, there will be a tug of war between the need to take care of duties and responsibilities, and the need to escape worldly burdens. It’s going to be necessary to navigate both worlds. My suggestion is to take care of what has to be done and spend plenty of time engaging in activities that feed your soul.

Secondly, we have a solar eclipse in Sagittarius early Saturday morning.  This eclipse is the conclusion of the eclipse series that began in 2020. Sagittarius is the sign that represents big picture perspectives, philosophy, and beliefs.  However, we have a curious happening in the cosmos, because the eclipse is square the centaur Nessus.

In mythology, Nessus is a member of the rowdy Centaur clan.  He was the ferryman at the Euenos river. Hercules arrives at the river and pays for his wife Deinara to ride to the other side. Upon reaching her destination, Nessus attempts to rape Deinara, and Hercules shoots him with an arrow tainted by the deadly Hydra’s poisonous blood.  As he is dying, Nessus gives a vial of his blood to Deinara and tells her that it will keep Hercules faithful.

Of course, since this is a myth, you know what will happen. After a while, Deinara fears Hercules is being unfaithful, so she pours Nessus’ poisoned blood on her husband’s tunic. Hercules wears the tunic and dies. After his death, Zeus brings Hercules to Mount Olympus where he is honored for his heroic activities.

Since Sagittarius is about higher learning, knowledge, and philosophy (not to mention its image of the Centaur), I felt that including Nessus was necessary. In the horoscope, Nessus reflects poisoning, and since he is currently moving through Pisces, it’s collective poisoning that we are concerned with. Over the last few years, we have noticed how dangerous misinformation is and what it can do to the global community. If you are on a social media platform or visit news sites, you are exposed to it on the daily. In many ways, we are ‘poisoned’ by collective movements, many of people involved are true believers in what they are posting, but propaganda can be deadly and can poison ordinary (and even some unordinary) people and their outlook on life.  I am hopeful that with this aspect being a separating square, much of this will begin to fade away, because we are encouraged to leave ‘group think’ (which can be equally poisonous) behind and focus on our big picture objectives. We need to take our ‘personal beliefs’ and take charge of our ‘personal worlds’, and start living our best lives, and leave the noise to others who wish to participate. Instead of being poisoned by the beliefs or statements of others, we need to be the cure. 

Enjoy your new beginning!

Now, on with the forecast…

Daily Breakdown

Monday, November 29, 2021

We start the week with a harmonious aspect between Mars and Neptune. Mars trine Neptune is the spiritual warrior.  He fights in the name of compassion, empathy, and without judgment. It’s an excellent day to focus on what you can do to help those less fortunate than you.  Since we are in the holiday season of good will towards your fellow man, being a force for good will help boost the morale of others and feed your spirit and soul.

Tuesday, November 30, 2021

There’s a lot of activity today with three major aspects – Mercury sextile Saturn, Venus sextile Neptune, and the Sun sextile Saturn.

Overall, Tuesday will be an interesting day, because Venus sextile Neptune would rather relax, smell the roses, and connect with loved ones, but duty calls.

During the early morning hours, Mercury sextiles Saturn in Aquarius. It’s an excellent day to work on tasks that need completion and get them off your to do list. Mercury sextile Saturn is very serious and tends to be steadfast and focused. So, any tasks that require precision and exactitude are recommended.

Later in the day, the Sun sextiles Saturn. The Sun sextile Saturn is an amazing aspect for career and professional advancement. Use this aspect to achieve the favor of supervisors and management, because you will be rewarded for a job well done.

Finally, this evening honor Venus sextile Neptune.  Spend some time doing something you enjoy.  If you are in a relationship, this is an auspicious day to take care of your partners needs. Otherwise, spiritual activities, the arts, and meditation are recommended.

Wednesday, December 1, 2021

The Moon moves into Scorpio and brings with it an intense undertone to the day. Your ordinary feelings may be felt more intensely, so stay on guard. This evening, the Moon forms a tough square to Saturn.  You may be plagued with insecurities and self-doubt.  Push away negative thoughts as they surface.

Thursday, December 2, 2021

The Moon continues to move through Scorpio, but makes easier aspects than yesterday. Throughout most of the day, the Moon trines Neptune and sextiles Venus. It’s a perfect day to do some self-care, relaxation, and pampering. A deep tissue massage or a mani and pedi would be an excellent way to work with this energy.

Friday, December 3, 2021

The Moon moves through joyful and spirited Sagittarius during the morning hours as she prepares to go into eclipse mode on Saturday.  Sagittarius is a fun-loving sign, and it’s an excellent day to socialize and spend time with your friends and members of your tribe. Tonight is the perfect time to let your hair down and spend a night out on the town.

Saturday, December 4, 2021

We have our final eclipse of eclipse season with the New Moon (solar eclipse) in Sagittarius. The sign of Sagittarius is about the potentials and possibilities of a better future. Have you been pursuing your dreams, or have your ideals been overly influenced by others, and therefore, have you diminished your light?  Have you not pursued your goals because of fear – either of failure or rejection? Now it’s time to break free and start living life on your terms. But be careful, solar eclipses are potent, and you should proceed slowly and methodically.  The good news is that the result is living your best life!

Sunday, December 5, 2021

We end the week with the Moon moving into earthy Capricorn. It’s an excellent day to get out your checklist of duties and responsibilities and get it done.  The Moon in Capricorn is the perfect Moon for holiday shopping, because it helps you restrict and avoid excessiveness.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of November 22, 2021 – November 28, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of November 22, 2021 through November 28, 2021 features only two astrological events – Mercury moves into Sagittarius, and the Sun joins Mercury at the end of the week.  So, after two turbulent forecasts, we get a bit of relief.

Cosmic Overview

We are now fully in Sagittarius season, and after the fireworks of Scorpio season, the energy of the centaur archer is welcomed. The sign of Sagittarius is about potential, possibilities, and faith in a better life.  It’s not a sudden Christmas miracle that fills people with good tidings, generosity, and wonderment. It’s just the season – Sagittarius, that is.

This Sagittarius season features Jupiter making his last stand in Aquarius before he slips out of the dark Lord Saturn’s grasp. Jupiter is the planet of expansion, luck, and optimism, and it is easy to see that his blessings have been curtailed over the past two years while dancing with Saturn in Capricorn and Aquarius.  However, despite Jupiter’s position, Sagittarius season encourages us to perceive life’s potentials, and it’s an excellent time to create your goals and resolutions for 2022.  That way you are ready to go – ON DAY ONE!

Now, on with the forecast…

Monday, November 22, 2021

We start the week off with the Moon moving through emotional Cancer. You may find yourself in the feels throughout the day. Simply, make sure you do not let your emotions control you.  Instead, feel and acknowledge them, and find practical ways to deal with them when they surface. You may need to nurture yourself, get plenty of rest, hydrate, and do some self-care.

Tuesday, November 23, 2021

The Moon continues its trek through the sign of the crab, and she forms a lovely trine to Mars during the morning hours.  It’s an excellent time to get things done and work on things that need a little effort.  Later in the afternoon, the Moon trines spiritual Neptune, which is wonderful for meditation and inner reflection.  This evening would be the perfect time to Netflix and chill.

Wednesday, November 24, 2021

After lurking in the darkness for the past few weeks, Mercury moves out of Scorpio and basks in the light of Sagittarius.  Mercury in Sagittarius is not concerned with facts and details, as they are only stepping stones for possibilities.  Mercury in Sagittarius is extremely intuitive and able to anticipate trends and turn them into opportunities.  While Mercury is in Sagittarius, it’s time to look at the possible and create a strategy to achieve results. Focus on the big picture and leave the past behind.

Thursday, November 25, 2021

Happy Thanksgiving! The Moon moves through fiery Leo and makes some troubling aspects to Saturn, Uranus, and Mars.  Tensions may be high throughout the day, especially if you are overly invested in your point of view. It’s best to avoid people that may antagonize you, and stay away from discussing hot button issues.

Friday, November 26, 2021

The Moon continues to move through Leo most of the day.  Your spirits should be high, and your attitude should be optimistic.  However, since the Moon opposes expansive Jupiter in Aquarius, be careful of ‘Black Friday’ spending because you could easily overextend yourself.

Saturday, November 27, 2021

The Moon moves through Virgo throughout the day on Saturday. It’s an auspicious day to take care of tasks and responsibilities that may have piled up over the last week.  The Moon forms a lovely trine to Uranus this evening, so do something spontaneous and carefree.

Sunday, November 28, 2021

We close the week out with a conjunction between the Sun and Mercury in Sagittarius.  It’s a perfect day to hang out with your tribe, engage in enthusiastic conversation, and socialize with others.  Since Mercury rules commerce, it’s also fantastic for business activities, transactions, and negotiations.  Further, you may receive profound insight into your current needs, which can help you craft your future.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the week of November 15, 2021 – November 21, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of November 15, 2021 – November 21, 2021 features 7 planetary aspects (Sun square Jupiter, Sun sextile Pluto, Mars oppose Uranus, Mercury trine Neptune, Mercury square Jupiter, and Mercury sextile Pluto), the Sun moving out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius, and a lunar eclipse in Taurus.

Astrologically, this is a hectic week with one of the most volatile aspects of the year.  So, let’s dig right in…

Cosmic Overview

The prime newsmaker this week is a lunar eclipse that occurs on Friday, November 19, 2021 at 28 Taurus.  This lunar eclipse is sandwiched between the fixed stars Caput Algol (off with your head) and Alcyone (something to cry about), so it is intense, especially as the eclipse is ruled by Venus in Capricorn. Eclipse energy is highly potent.  If you know your chart, look at the house with Taurus on the cusp, and this will reveal the areas of life that will be influenced. 

Here is a cheat sheet to help you with topics.

The sign of Taurus has to do with resources, money, and values. These are subjects are often activated with an eclipse in the sign of the bull.  Since astrology is an instructive language, this eclipse tells us that we need to look at how we manage our financial matters, how we obtain goods, and what is important to us.  I have long believed that our checkbooks reveal where our true values lie, because it is a ledger of what we purchase and where we spend our funds.

Since this eclipse is conjoined two negative fixed stars, we can expect financial woes to be headline news and potentially further problems with the supply chain. We can also expect political infighting related to money to become increasingly tense. 

So, word to the wise – get your shopping done early this holiday season.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, November 15, 2021

We start the week off with the Sun forming a square to Jupiter in Aquarius. Now, despite the aspect Jupiter attempts to expand any planet he contacts, which is a good thing.  Sun-Jupiter lets you go for the gusto and achieve whatever you desire, as long as you stay focused and don’t get too carried away.  However, you need to remember that the nature of Sun square Jupiter is to take things to extremes, and this can potentially lead to conflicts and burnout.  With Sun square Jupiter, it’s always best to be mindful of other people’s perspectives and try to avoid letting your ego run the show.  Self-importance is a color that’s never looked good on anyone.

Tuesday, November 16, 2021

The solar energy from yesterday continues today as the Sun sextiles Pluto. Sun sextile Pluto is an aspect of reform.  It’s an excellent day to make changes in your life, especially in areas that have been challenging. So, if you need to repair something broken in your life, now is the time to do it. You may also find that you are taking life more seriously, and this will help you make changes that ultimately improve your situation and make your life more manageable. Although Pluto likes to tear down things that are not working, and this can be troubling and painful, he always replaces them with things that are more viable and sustainable in the future.

Wednesday, November 17, 2021

Last week, we had the tumultuous buildup of Mercury-Mars-Saturn, and Mercury late last week transferred that frustration and tension to Uranus in Taurus.  In astrologese, this is called ‘translation of light’.  Since Mercury rules communication and thoughts, he has given Uranus plenty of time to brew, and may have ignited an urge to break free of any constraints that you have in your life. Today, explosive Mars joins the show as he opposes Uranus. 

Mars oppose Uranus is a volatile aspect, and you may need to control your temper and pay close attention to your reactions.  If you feel restricted or confined in any way, there may be a need to break free.  However, if you decide to make changes, you may experience push back from those around you.  Unhealthy and toxic situations may come to a head while this aspect is active. Stay on guard!

Thursday, November 18, 2021

After the intensity of Mars oppose Uranus, today may be a sigh of relief as Mercury trines Neptune in Pisces. You may feel the need to pull away from life’s difficulties and focus on doing things to maintain your soul. Self-care, meditation, and connecting with your inner self is recommended. You may even find that you are empathetic to other people, even if you disagree with them. Another way to work with Mercury trine Neptune is through creative projects. You will find your imagination is more active than normal, while this aspect is active.

Friday, November 19, 2021

Besides the potent lunar eclipse that occurs today, Venus forms a lovely trine to Uranus. 

Venus trine Uranus brings a bit of excitement, especially if your days have been stale and flat.  It’s an excellent day to shake things up and do something different.  So, let your hair down, go out on the town, explore new options, and infuse your life with a bit of joy.  But, as always with Uranus, expect the unexpected.

Saturday, November 20, 2021

On Saturday, Mercury in Scorpio forms a square to lucky Jupiter. Mercury-Jupiter aspects are optimistic, fun loving, perfect for conversations, and completing business deals. Since this aspect is a square, which can always cause minor complications or annoyances, make sure you read all the fine print before making a decision or signing documents.  Check and verify everything!

Another noteworthy feature of Mercury-Jupiter aspect is its ability to plan and foresee the big picture. So, it’s excellent for developing strategies and creating long-term goals.

Sunday, November 21, 2021

It’s an auspicious day to get to the bottom of a situation and discover the truth, and the truth can be both internal and external. Your mind will work like a detective digging beneath the surface to find the facts necessary to support your cause.  Since this is a helpful Mercury-Pluto aspect, you may find that people are more receptive to your thoughts, opinions, and ideas because your motives are to understand, not to control. But still, be mindful and choose your words wisely.

Later this evening, the Sun moves out of Scorpio, and Sagittarius season begins. It’s time to focus on the possible!

See you next week…
