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.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, May 2, 2022

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.

Tuesday, May 3, 2022

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.

Wednesday, May 4, 2022

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!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of April 11, 2022 – April 17, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of April 11, 2022 through April 17, 2022 features three planetary aspects (Jupiter conjunct Neptune, Sun sextile Saturn, Mercury sextile Venus), Mars moves out of Aquarius and into Pisces, and a Full Moon in relationship-oriented Libra.

It looks like it’s going to be another busy week. So, let’s dive right in!

Cosmic Overview

This week the cosmic headliner is Jupiter conjoin Neptune in Pisces. On one level, Jupiter conjunct Neptune may potentially breathe a little compassion, understanding, and empathy into a world lacking in human decency.  You may find that you are called upon to help those in need, or you may decide to do more spiritual based work. On the other hand, Jupiter can expand some dubious Neptunian characteristics, and we will see a deluge of misinformation, cult-like behaviors, and for a lack of a better phrase – ‘fake news’.  The key to working through the trickier side of Jupiter-Neptune is to ensure your ideas are your own and that you are not following people blinding.  Do your own research (FYI: 15 minutes on YouTube learning science from someone who failed 8th grade biology is not research) and investigate anything before leaping headfirst into an idea or cause.

If you encounter Jupiter-Neptune gone amok, usually in the form of your crazy uncle or weird guy (or girl) in your social media feeds, try to remember that Neptune seeks redemption and to ease pain and suffering, and that many people are suffering for various reasons. Try to be as understanding as possible, even if you disagree with them. Use compassion before condemnation!

Daily Overview

Monday, April 11, 2022

We start the week off with the Moon moving through fiery Leo. Since the ruler of Leo, the Sun, is in Aries, the energy throughout the day is potent. It’s an excellent day to focus on your own needs, desires, and ambitions. Work towards achieving your goals, and push all the outside noise to the side. You’ve got this!

Tuesday, April 12, 2022

Besides Jupiter conjoining Neptune in Pisces, the Sun forms a beneficial sextile to Saturn in Aquarius. It’s a good day to tie up loose ends and get things done. Sun sextile Saturn is extremely disciplined, which will help you remain focused on the task at hand. You may even receive recognition for your contributions from your supervisors or peers.

Wednesday, April 13, 2022

The Moon moves through practical Virgo.  It’s a great day to get out your to do list and take care of lingering responsibilities. Later in the day, the Moon trines Uranus in Taurus. Unexpected situations may happen, but the good news is that it will be to your benefit. Watch closely for opportunities that are presented at this time.

Thursday, April 14, 2022

Mars moves out of Aquarius and into Pisces.  Mars in Pisces is the spiritual warrior that fights for the greater good. Over the next few weeks, you may be called upon to help the less fortunate, and you will find that you are more compassionate and sensitive to the needs of others. Creative projects will also get a boost.

Friday, April 15, 2022

The Moon moves through relationship-oriented Libra.  It’s a great day to focus on your relationships and spend quality time with those you care for.  Since it is a Friday, you might want to consider a night on the town or a date night. So, go out and have some fun!

Saturday, April 16, 2022

This month, the Full Moon occurs in the sign of Libra. Libra is about relationships – all of them. This Full Moon cycle is about focusing on the people in your life that may be limiting your growth. This is a propitious time to rid yourself of relationships that are not feeding your soul. Since Libra is also one of the signs that governs legal matters, resolving legal hassles is also recommended.

Sunday, April 17, 2022

Mercury forms a lovely sextile to Venus in Pisces. It’s the perfect day to enjoy the company of others and appreciate the world around you.  Mercury sextile Venus is not an energetic aspect, so spend the day relaxing, reading, and socializing. A day out with a friend may be the best medicine for whatever ails you.

See you next week!

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

The astrology forecast for the week of April 4, 2022 through April 10, 2022 features four major aspects (Mars conjunct Saturn, Mercury sextile Saturn, Mercury sextile Mars, and Mercury square Pluto) and Venus and Mercury change signs.

So, the cosmos picks up speed this week. Let’s dive right in!

Cosmic Overview

The headliner this week is Venus moving out of Aquarius and into Pisces, the sign of her exaltation. This is good news, because Venus has been in Saturn ruled signs (Capricorn and Aquarius) since November 5, 2021, and she has been copresent with Mars and Saturn in Aquarius (part of the time besieged) since early March.

So, now Venus is free to do her thing, and since she is copresent with Jupiter (also in Pisces), we should begin to see a lightening of the energy and improvements in love and finances.  Also, note the house where Pisces is located in your chart, and the two houses that Venus (Taurus and Libra) rules, because they will also see an upswing.

The positive way to work with Venus in Pisces (because there are dysfunctional applications like codependency and idealization) is to use this energy to improve relationships, and this may include some necessary self-sacrifice.

All relationships go through troubles, difficulties, and sometimes get off track. Now is an excellent time to do some inner work to see where your relationships problem areas are, and do what you can to improve them. Since Venus is in Pisces, the ability to empathize and be compassionate is amplified, which allows compromises to occur and healing to begin.  Remember, Venus will also be in Pisces for your partner, so it’s easier to achieve reciprocity in relationships. If compromises cannot be achieved, the healing may begin when you accept the relationship is beyond repair, and that you need to begin loving yourself by making difficult decisions about your relationship’s future.

There is one warning: when working on relationship issues and compromising, do not lose sight of your boundaries.

Daily Breakdown

Monday April 4, 2022

We start the week off with a nasty Mars-Saturn configuration.  Mars conjoin Saturn is extremely frustrating, and it feels like driving with your brakes on. You may feel that people are obstructing or working against you, and you may need to push away negative thoughts if they surface. On a more positive note, this aspect is good for work that requires stamina and focus.

Tuesday, April 5, 2022

In addition to Venus moving into Pisces, the Moon moves through chatty Gemini. You will feel the need to socialize and share your ideas and opinions with your inner circle or network. Perhaps an afternoon lunch or playdate is on the menu.

Wednesday, April 6, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Gemini and forms beneficial aspects to the Sun, Mercury, and Saturn. It’s an excellent day for business related matters, especially if contracts and legal negotiations are involved. Furthermore, if you need to resolve a legal matter, this is a great day to begin the process of getting that done.

Thursday, April 7, 2022

Mercury in Aries forms a helpful sextile to Saturn in Aquarius. This is an auspicious day to take an honest look at your life and see what needs to change. Sometimes, we get caught up in our daily rituals, so that we fail to take a moment to do an honest inventory of our lives.  Mercury sextile Saturn is the perfect aspect to do so. Additionally, Mercury sextile Saturn is an excellent time to work on projects that require precision and focus.

Friday, April 8, 2022

Mercury in Aries sextiles Mars in Aquarius. Issues that may have occurred on Monday due to Mars’s conjunction with Saturn will have the opportunity to be resolved, as long as you are willing to negotiate. You may need to put your ego on a shelf, at least momentarily, and use careful thought to achieve results. Furthermore, Mercury sextile Mars gives you the initiative to take advantage of any opportunities you are presented with at this time. Since this aspect is favorable, matters will usually turn out positive. So, if you need to act, don’t hesitate to do so.

Saturday, April 9, 2022

The Moon moves through Cancer and during the morning hours forms a lovely trine to Jupiter and Neptune. It’s a great day for family activities, and checking in on your relatives. If you need to do any home repairs, today would be an excellent day to get them done.  However, be on guard this evening because the Moon squares Mercury, and minor communication issues are likely to occur.

Sunday, April 10, 2022

The end of the week brings us two cosmic events – Mercury in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn, and Mercury leaves the sign of the ram and heads into earthy Taurus.

During the early morning hours, Mercury squares Pluto.  Mercury square Pluto is a tricky aspect, because it’s extremely compulsive and leans towards obsessive thought patterns.  Try to avoid pushing your view on others, because it may lead to potentially unnecessary conflicts. If you are obsessed with an idea or have intrusive thought patterns, use distraction or self-soothing to minimize their effects.

Later in the day, Mercury moves out of Aries and into Taurus. Rather than understanding life through potentials and possibilities, we are now face to face with the real world of facts. While Mercury is in Taurus, it’s an excellent time to slow down and investigate matters before coming to a decision. Use careful thought and consideration at this time.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of March 28, 2022 – April 3, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of March 28, 2022 through April 3, 2022 features the major planetary aspects (Venus conjunct Saturn and Sun conjunct Mercury) and the New Moon in Aries.

The cosmos slows down for the end of March, but watch out Venus conjunct Saturn can be a bit of a downer!

Speaking of which…

Cosmic Overview

The aspect of the week is Venus conjunct Saturn in Aquarius. So, the primary theme of the week will involve relationships (all of them).

Now, despite the magical belief about relationships – you know, when you meet ‘the one’ and everything in life becomes perfect – relationships are hard work.  Sure, relationships can be exciting and fulfilling, but there are times when real world demands shatter our ideals of romantic bliss, and problems begin to occur.  Venus in hard aspect to Saturn is when they are often triggered.

We all go through struggles, and those struggles usually occur outside of relationships. They may be career-related, financial, medical, or familial, but we all have things we are dealing with regularly. Venus conjunct Saturn indicates a cycle when those worldly issues (Saturn) can affect our relationships, and even how we relate to our partners individually. Furthermore, when Venus conjoins Saturn, you may feel isolated and alone, which can complicate matters more.  

Working with Venus/Saturn requires honesty and realism. You may need to look at your life and what your relationships currently mean to you. Often, insight into ways to get your needs met while handling life’s circumstances is a productive way to get what you require from your partners, and that gut-level open communication can relieve some of the struggle. However, you need to also be cognizant of whether your reactions to the real world may alienate your partner because you are so focused on your own issues, and you are not receptive to them or their needs.

The good news is that if you put in the work, your relationships will become more stable and fulfilling. You can create a stronger support system to deal with your struggles.  All that is required is working with your relationships, not against them.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, March 28, 2022

We start the week off with the Moon in social Aquarius. It’s a great day to reach out to your support system if you are dealing with life’s difficulties and seek emotional support. Your connection to your friends and inner circle may prove pivotal over the next few days. Also, be prepared, Venus conjoins Saturn (see above) later this afternoon.

Tuesday, March 29, 2022

The Moon moves into emotional Pisces during the early morning hours. You will be more sensitive to the needs of others, and your intuition will be heightened. This evening, the Moon sextiles Uranus, and it’s an excellent time to take a break from the real world and do something exciting.

Wednesday, March 30, 2022

The Moon continues its monthly trip through Pisces and conjoins Jupiter and Neptune. Your mood should be positive, and you will be sympathetic to the needs of others. One warning – before you make a major decision, check and verify the facts and make sure everything is kosher.

Thursday, March 31, 2022

The Moon moves into fiery and energetic Aries as she prepares to go into New Moon mode. You may notice an increase in your energy levels, and your endurance may be increased. It’s an excellent day to accomplish things that require more determination. Focus on getting the win!

Friday, April 1, 2022

The New Moon occurs early this morning in Aries. This is the heart of Aries season, when the potential of the season is the most potent, and this period is active from April 1, 2022 until April 15, 2022. This New Moon is about your personal agenda and going after what you want in your life. You can look at this New Moon as your moment to plant seeds for the rest of the year. On the practical level, use this New Moon to start new projects, remove obstacles from your life, increase your personal potency, and break away from negative influences. In other words, the Aries New Moon is all about you, so take advantage of it.

Saturday, April 2, 2022

On Saturday, the Sun conjoins Mercury in Aries. This is a perfect start to the weekend, especially if you want to let your hair down and have some fun. You will want to socialize and connect with others, and your mood should be positive. It’s also an excellent day for business related matters and making plans for the future.

Sunday, April 3, 2022

We close the week with the Moon moving through Taurus. It’s a good day to kick back, relax, and enjoy your life. Since the Moon is in pleasurable Taurus, it’s also recommended you enjoy something you love. Perhaps a tasty treat, a bottle of wine, or something savory and decadent.  Just save something for me. Enjoy!

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of March 21, 2022 – March 27, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of March 21, 2022 through March 27, 2022 features four major aspects (Mercury conjunct Jupiter, Mars square Uranus, Mercury conjunct Neptune, and Mercury sextile Pluto) and Mercury moves out of Pisces and into fiery Aries.

Now, that’s a heck of a lot of Mercury energy this week. Let’s dive right in.

Cosmic Overview

Although Mercury is a big player, the most potent aspect of the week is Mars in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus. Mars square Uranus is an extremely volatile aspect, and it’s hard (even in the most conscious of people) to contain.  You may feel a need to break free from situations in your life where you feel controlled and restrained. Acting impulsively and reacting to external circumstances may need to be tempered so that you do not do any lasting damage to your life. It’s necessary to be as proactive as possible, and try to manage your emotions the best you can.

If you can control your impulses, Mars square Uranus can be useful. This aspect often reveals the areas of life where you feel discouraged and dissatisfied.  Understanding the root of your restlessness can help you make positive and meaningful changes in your life. The key is working with this energy productively, and not letting it work you.

Finally, Mars square Uranus is accident prone.  Try to be aware of what you are doing, especially when you are driving and handling equipment. A hard hat may be necessary!

Daily Breakdown

Monday, March 21, 2022

We start the week with a lovely conjunction of Mercury and Jupiter in Pisces. Since this aspect lands in the sign of the fishes, you may notice your creative energies are surging more than usual, which is a good thing, especially if you are in a line of work that occasionally needs a dose of “something extra”.

Mercury conjunct Jupiter is an extremely useful aspect. Your mood should be optimistic, and your outlook on life is mostly positive. You can see the big picture, and you can make the most of it. Mercury-Jupiter aspects are great for business activities and goal setting. So, make sure you take advantage of the energy while it’s available.

Tuesday, March 22, 2022

Mars forms a frustrating square to Uranus in Taurus. Expect the energy today to be intense and volatile. Try to avoid people that push your buttons, and be as proactive as possible. Also, be careful in your daily activities, because Mars square Uranus is accident prone.

Wednesday, March 23, 2022

Mercury conjoins Neptune in Pisces, and your imagination, creative juices, and intuition will be amplified. It’s an excellent day to work on creative projects or participate in spiritual activities. The only drawback is that it may be difficult to articulate your thoughts and ideas to others. Conversely, it may be difficult to understand others, and miscommunication may occur. Make sure you verify facts before making a major decision.

Thursday, March 24, 2022

The Moon spends most of the day void of course in Sagittarius. It’s best not to start any new projects or make firm agreements until the Moon moves into Capricorn later today (5:54 PM EST/2:54 PM PST). The void of course Moon lacks momentum, and usually nothing comes of matters initiated at this time.

Friday, March 25, 2022

The Moon moves through productive Capricorn. It’s an excellent day to focus on work and career related matters. Later in the day, the Moon forms a lovely trine to Uranus. It’s an excellent night to do something spontaneous and outside the box.

Saturday, March 26, 2022

Mercury forms a beneficial sextile to Pluto in Capricorn. Mercury sextile Pluto is useful to solve problems that may require intense focus and probing beneath the surface. You may receive insight into yourself or others that creates lasting change in your life. Mercury-Pluto aspects are also excellent for projects that require research and detective skills, because it will help you dig beneath the surface and discover the truth.

Sunday, March 27, 2022

We close the week with Mercury moving out of Pisces and into fiery Aries. Mercury in a fire sign is concerned with potentials and possibilities, and you may receive insights that you can use to your personal advantage. While Mercury is in the sign of the ram, your mental energies are increased if you are passionate about your ideas and inspired to use them. Mercury remains in Aries until April 10th.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the week of March 14, 2022 – March 20, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of March 14, 2022 through March 20, 2022 features two major aspects (Mercury sextile Uranus, Venus square Uranus), the change of the seasons as the Sun moves into Aries, and a Full Moon in Virgo.

So, once again, the cosmos picks up steam.  Let’s dive right in.

Cosmic Overview

The aspect of the week occurs on Saturday as Venus in Aquarius squares Uranus in Taurus. I’m going to be blunt (okay, I’m known for that): if you are inflexible in your relationships, must have your own way, or do not like to compromise, then Venus square Uranus is difficult – very difficult. However, if you are flexible and can compromise with your partners (all of them), Venus square Uranus can enhance your relationships significantly.

The planet Uranus likes progress, not stagnation. When Uranus is in a hard aspect to Venus, and your relationships are stuck in a rut and not growing, he tends to shake things up.

Now, the key to working with Venus square Uranus is to shake things up on your own. Venus-Uranus likes excitement, so doing different activities, exploring new things, and adding new elements to keep your relationships fresh will help mitigate many of the more troublesome manifestations of the aspect.

In addition to love, Venus rules money. You may want to keep a watch on your expenditures, because unexpected expenses may occur. Furthermore, this is not the best time to make impulsive investments.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, March 14, 2022

We start the week with the Moon moving through fiery Leo and it creates a tense configuration to Venus and Uranus. You may experience some minor tension in relationships that may leave you feeling anxious or ill at ease. Insecurities and self-doubt may surface, but be proactive when this occurs. Also, note what is worrying you because it may be a major indicator of what needs to be worked on when Venus squares Uranus later in the week.

Tuesday, March 15, 2022

The Moon will spend most of the day void of course in Leo. Avoid signing documents, making firm agreements, or starting anything new. Void of course moons lack sufficient energy to keep momentum flowing, so usually nothing comes of the matter. The Moon moves into Virgo early Wednesday morning.

Wednesday, March 16, 2022

The Moon moves into dutiful Virgo. Although it may not be the most exciting day of the week, it is excellent to get out your to do list and get things done. The Virgo Moon is also great for focusing on health-related matters, starting a business plan, and hitting the gym. Getting energy moving through your body is a good thing – not necessarily fun, but good.

Thursday, March 17, 2022

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! On Thursday, we have our first aspect of the week as Mercury sextiles Uranus. It’s a day for excitement and new discoveries. Take some time out today to do something different and out of the box for you. Exploring new things helps to keep the mind alive and will help to refresh your soul.

Friday, March 18, 2022

The Full Moon occurs today in the sign of Virgo. You can use this cycle to break bad habits, remove negative or obsessive thought patterns, prepare to leave a toxic work situation, or to clean up your side of the street to successfully prepare for something new. Since this Full Moon is in opposition to Neptune, you can also use this Full Moon to conquer addictions.

Saturday, March 19, 2022

In addition to Venus squaring Uranus, the Moon moves through relationship-oriented Libra. It’s an excellent day to focus on your relationships and what you can do to make them better. On Saturday evening, the Moon trines Saturn, and it’s the perfect time to tie up loose ends, and get things off your to do list.

Sunday, March 20, 2022

We close the week with the Sun moving out of Pisces and into Aries. Aries is the beginning of the astrological New Year. It’s an auspicious day to focus on what you would like to achieve over the next year and develop strategies to get results. Anything is possible, you just need the gumption to do it.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of March 7, 2022 – March 13, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of March 7, 2022 through March 13, 2022 features a minimal amount of cosmic energy. We have Mercury moving out of Aquarius and into Pisces, and the Sun completes his annual conjunction to Neptune.

Since there is not a lot of activity this week, I decided to offer suggestions to work with the weekly forecast, since I often get questions about personalizing the forecast frequently.

The first thing you need is a copy of your personal horoscope. You can get a copy by visiting astro.com.  If you are new to astrology, I would recommend working with whole sign houses, because this system is easier.  The purpose of getting a copy of your horoscope is to find out your ascendant (rising sign), which will reveal how your houses lay out in the chart.

Next, you can download a copy of the “Astrology Cheat Sheet” designed by my late friend Barbara Schermer. It’s an excellent quick resource for you to have on hand, or you can purchase “Astrology for Yourself” by Demetra George, which is available in workbook and kindle formats.

Finally, you can now plot the areas of your chart where astrological activity is taking place. For example, this week Mercury moves into the sign of Pisces. If you have Libra rising (and working with whole sign houses), then Mercury will move into your 6th house of health, work, rituals, and day to day activities.  This means Mercury will provide understanding and conversations about these areas of your life. However, if you have Taurus rising, Mercury will move through your 11th house of friends, groups, and hopes and wishes. While Mercury is in Pisces, you will likely feel more social, and you will perhaps look at your big picture plans and objectives.

I hope this helps you get more meaning out of the forecast and brings astrology more to life in your personal life.

Now, on with the weekly forecast…

Daily Breakdown

Monday, March 7, 2022

We start the week off with the Moon moving through Taurus. Take advantage of the morning hours, because the Moon makes favorable aspects to the Sun and Jupiter in Pisces. Your overall disposition should be optimistic. However, be on guard later this afternoon because the Moon squares Saturn, which could potentially sour the day. Push away negative thoughts when they enter your headspace.

Tuesday, March 8, 2022

The morning hours could prove contentious as the Moon squares Mercury.  Try to avoid people who may push your buttons. Later on Tuesday, the Moon leaves Taurus and enters social Gemini and trines Venus and Mars. This evening is perfect for socializing, connecting with your inner circle, or a date night.

Wednesday, March 9, 2022

After three weeks in Aquarius, Mercury moves out of the sign of the water bearer and into Pisces. Mercury in Pisces understands life through its receptivity to the feelings of others and the current temperature of the collective, which currently is rather volatile. Your intuition will be off the chains, and you may have trouble distinguishing between your personal emotional responses and the moods of others.  Try to remain as grounded as possible, and if you are emotionally overwhelmed, practice self-care. Additionally, this is an auspicious time to work on creative projects, because your receptivity to ‘other’ worlds will be at its peak.  Mercury remains in Pisces until March 27th.

Thursday, March 10, 2022

You may find yourself battling a heavy dose of brain fog as the Moon in Gemini squares Neptune. It’s best to work on activities that do not require intensive focus. After squaring Neptune, the Moon will go void of course for the rest of the day. Avoid starting anything new or making firm agreements until the Moon enters Cancer tomorrow.

Friday, March 11, 2022

The Moon enters emotional Cancer and forms a lovely trine to Mercury. It’s an excellent day to discuss sensitive subjects that require empathy and compassion, especially with family members. This evening, spend some time doing something you enjoy at home, like making your favorite dish or enjoying a movie.

Saturday, March 12, 2022

The beginning of the weekend starts with the Moon making lovely aspects to Jupiter and the Sun, bringing together the beneficial energies from last weekend front and center again. It’s an excellent day to spend time with loved ones and simply enjoy your life. Also, if you want to head to the store to buy some home decor items to brighten up your space, it’s a great day to do so.

Sunday, March 13, 2022

We close the week with the annual conjunction of the Sun and Neptune in the sign of Pisces. You will find sympathy and compassion for those in your life currently in need. It’s an excellent day to do charity work, and reach out to someone and let them know you care. However, it’s best to avoid mood altering subjects while this aspect is active (the next three days).

See you next week!
