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.

Wednesday, June 15, 2022

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!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of June 6, 2022 – June 12, 2022

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!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of May 16, 2022 – May 22, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of May 16, 2022 through May 22, 2022 features five planetary aspects (Mars conjunct Neptune, the Sun trine Pluto, Mercury Rx sextile Jupiter, the Sun conjunct Mercury Rx, and Mars sextile Pluto), sign changes for the Sun and Mercury Rx, and a potent lunar eclipse in Scorpio.

This week is piping hot and has more activity than the New York subway system. So, without further ado, let’s dive in.

Cosmic Overview

The big newsmaker this week is the lunar eclipse in turbulent Scorpio on May 15, 2022 at 12:14 AM EST, and on May 14, 2022 at 9:14 PM PST

The sign of Scorpio is connected to the darker parts of your personality, the sides of yourself that you prefer not to show in the light of day. It’s an excellent Full Moon to protect yourself from yourself and work through self-defeating behaviors or self-sabotage. Often the things that we do are not driven by conscious thought, but are rooted in our childhood experiences for better or worse. However, this is your show – you get to cast your own characters, defeat your own monsters, marry your own prince (or princess), and yes, write off any characters that no longer serve your purposes. So, get to work on your new script!

Daily Breakdown

Monday, May 16, 2022

After the lunar eclipse occurs shortly after midnight (on the east coast), the Moon will switch signs and move into Sagittarius during the early morning hours. The Moon in Sagittarius is feisty and optimistic, and since it forms a lovely trine to Jupiter, it should be a positive day.  However, watch out this afternoon, because the Moon will oppose Mercury Rx, and communication issues are likely.

Tuesday, May 17, 2022

The Moon continues to move through free-spirited Sagittarius and makes a lovely trine to Venus in Aries. It’s not the best day for heavy lifting or focusing on duties and responsibilities, but it’s an excellent day to do something enjoyable. But keep your guard up this evening, as the Moon squares Mars, and tensions with others may become a potential problem.

Wednesday, May 18, 2022

Mars conjoins Neptune in Pisces. The good news is that Mars and Jupiter are in mutual reception (in each other’s sign), and this will hopefully mitigate the energy. The bad news is that Mars conjunct Neptune is a tough aspect that comes with a side order of low energy, self-doubt, and inner insecurities. It’s best to avoid people who may potentially take advantage of you. However, it’s a good day to do charity work or help another person – as long as your personal agenda is not involved.

Thursday, May 19, 2022

Thursday is a potent day, astrologically speaking. We start the day off with a helpful trine between the Sun and Pluto.  Sometimes, you need powerful (Pluto) experiences to see reality for what it is, and then you can use these experiences to make changes in your life that help you level up. Later in the day, Mercury sextile Jupiter gives you the opportunity to see the big picture and make future plans. Mercury sextile Jupiter is also great for business decisions.  Just make sure you wait until after June 3rd to act, because Mercury is retrograde.

Friday, May 20, 2022

On Friday, the Sun moves out of Taurus and into Gemini. Gemini season helps you explore how you think about things, as well as helps formulate ideas and personal opinions. While the Sun is in the sign of the twins, you will notice that you need to be more social and explore new things. Use this energy to explore all your options to enrich your universe.

Saturday, May 21, 2022

As the Sun conjoins Mercury Rx in Gemini, we enter the halfway point in this Mercury Rx cycle. The Sun conjunct Mercury is an extremely social aspect, and since it’s the weekend, it’s a great day to connect with your inner circle to catch up or engage in high-spirited ideas that fascinate you. It’s also another great day to plan your future, especially activities that pique your interest.

Sunday May 22, 2022

We close the week with Mars sextile Pluto in Capricorn. Mars sextile Pluto gives you the opportunity to claim your power and also gives you the ability to course correct, especially if you’ve been traveling down the wrong road. Pay close attention to the detour signs in your life, as they are clear signs of what you need to change. Also, Mercury retrogrades back into stubborn Taurus.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of May 9, 2022 – May 15, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of May 9, 2022 through May 15, 2022 features two planetary aspects (Sun square Saturn and Sun sextile Neptune), Mercury turning retrograde in Gemini, and Jupiter moving out of Pisces and into Aries.

So, there is a lot going on this week.  Let’s dive right in.

Cosmic Overview

This week, the cosmic juggernaut Jupiter moves out of Pisces (he will return later in the year) and into Aries. In astrology, Jupiter is the planet of expansion – he makes our lives grow bigger, better, bolder, and hopefully wiser. When Jupiter moves into a new sign, he expands the natural tendencies of the sign, and since he is moving into Aries, get ready for a giant dose of get up and go.

The sign of Aries is extremely individualistic and concerned with matters related to the self. Some keywords associated with Aries are initiating, energetic, forceful, and courageous. When Jupiter moves through the sign of the ram, he will expand our lives by pushing our individual selves forward. So, this is an excellent time to go after whatever you want in life, whether career related, your personal goals, or your inner desires. Jupiter gives us the ability to make things happen, and the drive and determination to succeed.

Overall, it is time for you to seize your moment!  Don’t let this energy pass you by, it only comes around every 12 years.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, May 9, 2022

The Moon moves through energetic Leo and opposes Saturn early in the day. The Moon in opposition to Saturn could lead to feelings of isolation, negative mindsets, and difficulties with authority figures. After the Moon opposes Saturn, it goes void of course, until she moves into Virgo. While the Moon is void of course, it’s best to avoid beginning anything new or signing documents. The Moon moves into Virgo at 6:53 PM EST/3:53 PST.

Tuesday, May 10, 2022

Besides Jupiter moving into Aries, Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini. Mercury retrograde in Gemini instructs us to look at our thoughts and opinions, and make adjustments if necessary. Avoid making major decisions and expect communication issues. Also, make sure you keep your computer and electronic devices updated and backed up. Since Mercury rules Gemini, you can expect this retrograde to be a doozy.

Wednesday, May 11, 2022

The Moon continues its trip through Virgo and forms tense aspects to Mars and Neptune. Mild disagreements with others may occur during the early morning hours. Be as proactive as possible, and avoid reacting to other people’s issues.  Later in the day, the Moon opposes Neptune. You may experience some mild confusion, and it’s best not to make any decisions at this time.

Thursday, May 12, 2022

The Moon moves into Libra during the early morning hours and opposes Jupiter, Venus and trines Mercury. Although this is not the best day for heavy lifting, it’s an excellent day to spend some time enjoying your life and having some good old-fashioned fun. You will also want to socialize and connect with others.

Friday, May 13, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Libra and forms a lovely trine to Saturn in Aquarius. Yesterday was about fun in the Sun, but today is all about taking care of business.  Make sure you take time out today to take care of your duties and responsibilities. Legal matters may also be an issue.

Saturday, May 14, 2022

The Moon moves into Scorpio, the sign of the upcoming lunar eclipse that happens on Monday. Expect intense emotions to surface, and problems from the past may need resolution. Try to be as non-reactive as possible when dealing with others, because they may be potentially volatile.

Sunday, May 15, 2022

We close the week with a few solar aspects, the most significant being the Sun square Saturn. Today is a battle between your personal gratification and your duties and responsibilities. You may feel depressed and restrictive, and you may want to break free of your circumstances.  Try to push away negative thoughts if they surface.

To help you with Mercury Rx, I have included the following:

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

  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 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 will 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 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 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 a great time to scour places (online and offline) for great deals!

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of May 2, 2022 – May 8, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of May 2, 2022 through May 8, 2022 features 5 major planetary aspects (Jupiter sextile Pluto, Mars sextile Uranus, Sun conjunct Uranus, Mercury sextile Venus, and the Sun sextile Mars) and Venus moves out of Pisces and into Aries.

May is one of the busiest months of the year, and the first week of May doesn’t disappoint. Let’s dive right in.

Cosmic Overview

This week Jupiter sextiles Pluto, one of the outer planets. This aspect is incredible to work with if you want to make some major life changes. Pluto is the planet that gives us personal power if we work with it proactively, and Jupiter expands Pluto’s natural energies. So, this is a powerful cycle to make dynamic changes internally and externally, and you can use this energy to reform any area of your life that you want to change.

While Jupiter sextile Pluto is active, make sure you take advantage of it, because you will have the energy to accomplish whatever you put your mind to, and achieve greater control over your life. So, anything you put off, or haven’t pursued, or been fearful of tackling, now is the time to seize your moment.

Venus moves out of Pisces, the sign of her exaltation, and into Aries, the sign of her detriment. Venus is the planet associated with love and relationships, and the sign of Aries is extremely self-focused. So, while Venus is in Aries, she is concerned with her own individual pursuits and desires, and she has the drive to go out and get it. Now, this can be difficult for relationships, and you may need to be patient with your partners (all of them) and yourself during this process, especially since Venus in Aries likes a challenge, is wildly competitive, and will fight to get what she wants. Venus remains in Aries until May 28th.

Besides, Jupiter sextile Pluto, the Moon moves through social Gemini. Expect minor disagreements during the morning hours, as the Moon squares feisty Mars.  Try to be as patient as possible when dealing with others. A proactive approach is the best approach.

Mars forms a sextile to Uranus in Taurus. You will be itching for new experiences, especially if your life has been monotonous recently. Furthermore, if you need to break free of boundaries and limitations, Mars sextile Uranus helps you break through barriers with new insights and solutions. It’s also a great time to make new friends that stimulate your soul and provide some excitement in your life.

Thursday, May 5, 2022

The Sun conjoins Uranus in Taurus. It’s going to be another day that you need to break free from the confines of your daily life and do something different. You may feel restless and constrained, and this could lead to anxiety if you don’t work with this energy proactively. If you have a hard time creating change or change in general, you may feel nothing is working out the way you planned, and this may lead to feelings of frustration. Although you may want to cling onto things in your life, letting them go may be your best option.

Friday, May 6, 2022

This weekend will be decent, starting with Mercury sextile Venus in Aries. It’s an excellent day for socializing, connecting with others, and enjoying the pleasures of life. Mercury sextile Venus can also put you in touch with your true feelings, especially about love and romance. Tonight is excellent for a date night, so go out and enjoy yourself.

Saturday, May 7, 2022

The Sun forms a lovely sextile to Mars. This is a high energy aspect that you should take advantage of, because it gives you the drive and determination to accomplish whatever you desire. You will notice that you are self-assertive, and if you need to ask someone to meet your needs, now is the time to do it.

Sunday, May 8, 2022

We close the week with the Moon in fiery Leo. It’s an excellent day to play and let your inner child roar. Expect some minor unexpected surprises during the early afternoon when the Moon squares disruptive Uranus, but try not to let it steal your joy. Otherwise, the day should go relatively smoothly.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the week of April 18, 2022 – April 24, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of April 18, 2022 through April 24, 2022 features five planetary aspects (Mercury conjunct Uranus, Venus sextile Neptune, Sun square Pluto, Mercury square Saturn, Mercury sextile Neptune), and the Sun moves out of Aries and into earthy Taurus.

It’s going to be a cosmically busy this week, but all the action occurs at the beginning of the week and the end of the week. So, without further ado…

Cosmic Overview

This week is the beginning of Taurus season, so I figured I would give a little insight into a sign that is much more complex than money and finances.

There are many stories which you can associate with Taurus – King Midas, Ferdinand the Bull, and many fairytales, which all fit the bill. However, I feel that the myth of King Minos of Crete is perhaps one of the most important.

King Minos is the son of Zeus and Europa, who had to compete with his two siblings to ascend to the throne of one of the wealthiest islands of Greece. Minos claimed the throne by divine right, since his father, the king of the gods Zeus, pursued Europa and impregnated her in the form of a bull. Minos prayed to his uncle Poseidon to send a bull out of the sea to seal the deal, and agreed to sacrifice the bull in his honor. Poseidon granted Minos’ request and sent a beautiful bull, which Minos immediately desired. But, instead of sacrificing the bull in the god’s honor, he added the bull to his herd. He then deceptively sacrificed another bull to the god of the seas.

Poseidon was not amused and sent Aphrodite (the ruler of Taurus) to inflict Queen Pasiphae (Minos’s wife) with lust for the bull. Pasiphae instructs the craftsman Daedalus to create her a cow that she could climb into. Once completed, she entered the wooden cow, and then the bull entered her. Nine months later, she gave birth to a half man/half bull creature called the Minotaur.

Minos felt deep shame for his sins and had Daedalus (this guy suffers his own breakdown later because of his participation, which could symbolize our need to stick to our personal values rather than the values of others) create a structure known as the Labyrinth to house the Minotaur, and each month a virgin boy and girl were sent into the Labyrinth to feed the beast.

Now, of course, this is a rather twisted story, but there is a core to the story that gives us a glimpse into Taurus. Crete is an exceptionally wealthy country, and in its vast abundance and potent fertile lands lies a beast that threatens to devour the landscape unless it is ‘contained’. Perhaps, the Minotaur lives within each of us, and during Taurus season, we need to sort through what we possess and our motivations for obtaining it. Furthermore, we may need to look at our stewardship over our money and resources, and are we maintaining it and using it appropriately, or are we wasting it by feeding an inner minotaur.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, April 18, 2022

We begin the week with three major aspects – Mercury conjunct Uranus, Venus sextile Uranus, and the Sun square transformative Pluto.

Let’s tackle the Uranian aspects first.

Uranus likes to break free of earthly limits. He is associated with human progress, ingenuity, and tearing down the existing established order.  When Uranus aspects other planets, he tends to stir them up, electrify them, if you will, and expose those planets to something new. Uranus likes to challenge your existing world to bring new elements into your life that keep things exciting. For earthy types, Uranian energy can be unpredictable, change (even if it’s for their benefit) can be frightening, and the unexpected can be difficult because it’s not reliable.

On Monday, Mercury conjoins Uranus.  Your mind may be restless, and there may be a steady flow of new ideas, inspiration, and intuitive hunches. This may bring opportunities into your life that may pay off if you take advantage of them. However, if you have trouble managing the surge of frenetic mental energy, you may feel anxious and ill at ease. It’s always best to expect the unexpected.

A few hours later, Venus will sextile Uranus. You may need to break away from the day-to-day monotony and focus on exciting and stimulating things. Try to break up your routine and do something new with those you care about. Furthermore, you may attract new friends that are fascinating and bring new and intense ideas to the table.

Now, onto the Sun square Pluto.

Whereas Uranus brings unexpected change, Pluto amputates the areas of life that are no longer working, and well past their expiration date. This is a tricky aspect that you should not avoid. Areas of your life that are not working will be revealed, and it’s your job to change them and make them more manageable. Since Pluto is Pluto, resistance to change can lead to more problems. Let go of old patterns of behavior that are not working for you. It’s time to purge the old and make way for the new.

Tuesday, April 19, 2022

We leave the fiery sign of Aries and return to earth as Taurus season officially begins at 10:24 EST/7:24 PST. Whereas Aries season is about potentials, Taurus season is about facts and our ability to channel the potentials revealed last month into something tangible. Use the energy of the next month to realistically look at life and make choices and decisions based on reality. Taurus season is also a great time to get your fiscal picture in order.

Wednesday, April 20, 2022

The Moon moves through energetic Sagittarius. It’s best to get everything you need done during the early morning hours, as the Moon applies to a sextile with Saturn. Later in the day, it will be difficult to remain focused as the Moon squares Neptune. You may feel moments of confusion, so it’s best to do things that don’t require heavy lifting. This evening, take advantage of the Moon square Jupiter and do some things you enjoy.

Thursday, April 21, 2022

The Moon moves through responsible Capricorn and sextiles Mars. You may feel more energized than normal, and it’s the perfect time to take charge of your life. You will notice that you feel more confident and self-assured. Tackle projects that require a little something extra.

Friday, April 22, 2022

The Moon continues to make its monthly trip through Capricorn, the sign of the sea-goat. Throughout the day, the Moon makes several favorable aspects. Your day should go relatively smoothly, and it’s an excellent day to take care of your responsibilities. However, be on guard this evening as the Moon conjoins Pluto, and intense emotions may surface.  Manage your emotional surges with some self-care.

Saturday, April 23, 2022

The Moon spends the day moving through Aquarius. It’s an excellent day to meet up with your inner circle and catch up. If you’ve been overwhelmed by worldly issues and concerns, spend some time today doing something you enjoy or exploring something new. If you need to share your opinions with others, today is a great day to do it.

Sunday, April 24, 2022

Mercury forms a difficult square to Saturn in Aquarius. You may find that you are dwelling on the problem areas of your life, and sometimes feel isolated and alone. It will be difficult to communicate with others, and you may feel misunderstood. Try to push away negative thoughts if they surface.

See you next week!
