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!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of February 28, 2022 – March 6, 2022

The astrology forecast for February 28, 2022 through March 6, 2022 features five major aspects (Sun sextile Uranus, Mercury conjunct Saturn, Mars conjunct Pluto, Venus conjunct Pluto, the Sun conjunct Jupiter, and Venus conjunct Mars), two sign changes (Venus and Mars), and a New Moon in Pisces.

Damn! That’s a lot of energy

So, without further ado, let’s dive in.

Cosmic Overview

This week features the most positive day of the year, as the Sun and Jupiter conjoin in Pisces. Sun conjoins Jupiter in Pisces is incredibly positive because Jupiter is in his sign, and his benefic energy is amplified. So, make sure you take advantage of this energy while it’s available.

One of the most beneficial features of the Sun conjunct Jupiter is it’s an optimistic and joyful aspect. Your spirits will be lifted, and this should have a positive impact on your outlook on life, and people will enjoy being around you. New experiences are important at this time because Jupiter will want to expand your worldview, and you will have the urge to make your life bigger, bolder, and brighter. As I said earlier, the Sun conjoined to Jupiter is considered lucky. It’s easy to quickly (especially the fire signs) see opportunities and take advantage of them. So, pay close attention to anything presented to you while this aspect is active.

The only drawback to Sun conjunct Jupiter is its propensity towards burnout. It’s very easy to get excited by everything in your life, and as a result, you may take on more than you can handle. So, try not to overdo it.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, February 28, 2022

We start the week off with the Moon moving through Aquarius. It’s a great day to socialize and connect with your inner circle. You will find group activities rewarding, because the focus will be on meaningful experiences, not individual egos. Later in the day, you may be focused on more serious subjects, and seek new ways to make your life better.

Tuesday, March 1, 2022

The Sun forms a lovely sextile to Uranus in Taurus. You may feel more alert than normal, and you will crave excitement. Day to day monotony will just not do it for you, and you may need to tap into your adventurous inner child and explore new things. Furthermore, it’s a great day to make changes in your life, because Uranus will help you find new solutions to problems you haven’t been able to resolve.

Wednesday, March 2, 2022

We reach the heart of Pisces season, as the New Moon occurs at 12:35 PM EST/9:35 AM PST. This is an excellent New Moon if you need to do healing work, connect with your spiritual allies, to find meaning and joy in your life, or supercharge creative projects. You can also use this New Moon to examine your dreams or do divination.

As far as the energy of the day, expect minor frustrations and communication issues, as Mercury conjoins Saturn in Aquarius. You may go through feelings of self-doubt and loneliness. Push away negative thoughts and distract yourself with busy work if necessary.

Thursday, March 3, 2022

On Thursday, Venus and Mars both conjoin Pluto in Capricorn. This planetary combination is potentially volatile because it often evokes conflict with others, and with Venus involved, those conflicts may occur in personal relationships. As a result, you may experience power struggles with others and may need to choose your battles carefully.

On a more positive note, these energies also give you the drive and determination to accomplish whatever you wish to achieve. Just try not to mow down other people in the process.

Friday, March 4, 2022

The Moon moves through fiery Aries. The Moon in Aries is about going after what you desire and focusing on your personal ambitions. You will also (well, most of you) notice a much-needed energy boost that will help you accomplish whatever you need to get done. Use this energy wisely because it won’t last long.

Saturday, March 5, 2022

Today is the most positive day of the year, as the Sun conjoins Jupiter in Pisces, and the positive energies are amplified because Jupiter is in its own sign. So it’s an excellent day to look at your big picture objectives and go for the gold. You can achieve anything you put your mind to because this aspect delivers.

Sunday, March 6, 2022

Venus and Mars move into Aquarius and finalize the aspect cycle they began before Venus went retrograde in December. This conjunction may resolve long-term issues you’ve been waiting on, and it’s the perfect energy to improve relationships or begin new ones. In addition, since Saturn (the ruler of Aquarius) is highly dignified, he will help make relationships more stable.

See you next week!

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

The astrology forecast for the week of February 21, 2022 through February 27, 2022 features three major aspects, all grouped in the middle of the week – Mars sextile Neptune, Venus sextile Neptune, and Mercury square Uranus.

Cosmic Overview

The cosmic event of the week is Mercury in Aquarius (now out of shadow) square Uranus in Taurus. If there is a week in which cabin fever will kick into high gear, this is the one!

Mercury square Uranus gets bored with the same old monotonous day-to-day activities, and will seek out new things, often impulsively, to add some excitement to everyday life. Now, this is fine and dandy and usually goes smoothly with a sextile or trine, but since this is a square, the erratic nature of the aspect can be problematic. For many (yes mutable signs, I’m talking to you), there will be an urge to throw duties and responsibilities out the window in favor of excitement and exploring new things. However, this can come with consequences, so try to think things out before throwing caution to the wind.

Another feature of Mercury square Uranus is that your thoughts will be fast and furious. You will be inspired by new ideas and interests, and will want to explore them. Intuitive hunches or insights may be amplified while this aspect is active. But, if you have difficulties controlling the onslaught of mental activity, you could end up feeling anxious or nervous. As best as possible, try to focus on one thing and leave the others for another day. Obviously, it’s best not to focus on projects that need focus and concentration.

Astrology Forecast for the Week of February 14, 2022 – February 20, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of February 14, 2022 through February 20, 2022 features two major aspects (Venus conjunct Mars and Jupiter sextile Uranus), two sign changes, and the Full Moon in Leo.

It’s going to be a busy week. So, let’s dive right in.

Cosmic Overview

The aspect of the week is Mars conjoined to Venus in Capricorn. This configuration is special because Mars will overtake Venus, when usually Venus is the one that completes an aspect to Mars.

But, why?

Back in November, Venus moved into Capricorn and began applying to a sextile with Mars in Scorpio. However, Venus slowed down before turning retrograde, and Mars slipped into Sagittarius. In astrological terms, this is called frustration, and it means that matters governed by Venus and Mars could not come together or materialize. Venus turned retrograde in December, and Mars continued to move through Sagittarius until it moved into Capricorn on January 24th. Venus then turned direct on January 29th, but because she is still moving slower than Mars, Mars can overtake Venus and finally come together.

Mars conjoin Venus is great for relationships that have been problematic for the last few months. Tensions should begin to subside, and since the conjunction occurs in earthy Capricorn, this is an excellent time to get the relationship back on the right footing and begin to rebuild structure and foundation. You will notice that it will be easier to negotiate and reach a compromise. Also, if your sex life has been in a slump, Mars-Venus will help spice it up! So, even though Valentine’s Day happens on February 14th, in the cosmos cupids arrow strikes on the 16th.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, February 14, 2022

We start the week off with Mercury moving out of Capricorn and back into Aquarius. Remember, Aquarius is the sign Mercury turned retrograde in last month, so all you Mercury shadow watchers, the end is near.

The sign of Aquarius is about progress. On the personal level, we can say that Aquarius is the sign that helps make our lives better than it is now. So Mercury, moving through the sign of the water bearer, helps us develop strategies, plans, and ways to help us level up. Pay close attention to your current interests or anything you learn at this time, because it may provide insight about the future.

Tuesday, February 15, 2022

The Moon moves through playful Leo and forms a tense opposition to Saturn. Although you would rather play and have some fun, the burdens of Saturn may leave you feeling frustrated and cranky.  The key to working with this aspect is to take care of business, but save some time for the fun stuff. Remember, all work and no play make Jill a sad girl.

Wednesday, February 16, 2022

The Full Moon occurs in fiery Leo. The sign of Leo reflects our inner purpose (destiny) and personal identity. Since the Full Moon cycle is about letting go of what no longer serves you, this Full Moon is excellent for banishing self-defeating behaviors and everything in your life that doesn’t bring you joy. Also, if you need reputation repair, this is the perfect time to leave your past mistakes behind and embrace the real you – warts and all.

Thursday, February 17, 2022

Today, Jupiter forms a sextile to Uranus in Taurus. If you’ve been waiting for an auspicious time to make positive changes in your life, look no further – Jupiter sextile Uranus will get the job done. While this aspect is active (next two weeks), it’s a beneficial time to change jobs, make financial investments, and take risks. Since Jupiter is highly dignified in Pisces, anything you put your mind and energy into should be successful.

Friday, February 18, 2022

The Sun moves out of the airy realms of Aquarius and dives deep into the oceanic depths of Pisces.

Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac. It reflects the process of going inward after eleven months of experiencing the outer world and preparing to begin the process again once the Sun moves into Aries in March. The yearly cycle (actually, all cycles) resembles the cycle of the Moon. As the Moon fades away during the waning crescent Moon, it’s time to focus on what we need to let go of, do releasing work, healing, and bring old matters to a conclusion. We are given a larger window to work on these issues during Pisces season.  Just a warning: this type of work shouldn’t be done haphazardly. Instead, it should be done with careful thought and consideration.

Saturday, February 19, 2022

The Moon moves through social Libra and forms a beautiful trine to Mercury in Aquarius. If you’ve experienced some cabin fever over the past few months, it’s time to get out, smell the fresh air, and socialize with people. It’s an excellent day for a lunch date or a get together. The main point is connecting with others, especially those you care about.

Sunday, February 20, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Libra and squares Venus and Mars. You may experience some minor conflict with others today, but matters should resolve quickly. Try to remain as proactive as possible and use your wise mind.

See you next week!

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

The astrology forecast for the week of February 7, 2022 through February 13, 2022 features only two planetary aspects – Mars trine Uranus and Mercury conjunct Pluto.

So, energetically speaking, it’s a slow week.  But, after two planetary retrogrades (Mercury and Venus), we need a bit of a break.

Let’s dive in…

Cosmic Overview

The aspect of the week occurs on Friday, when Mercury conjoins Pluto for the third time in the last two months.  Mercury conjoin Pluto adds a bit of intensity to the mind, and it’s easy to see beneath the surface of things, especially other people’s agendas.  But, even though you see the ‘truth of the matter’, it’s best to keep it to yourself for now, because this aspect easily triggers opposition from others.  So, use any knowledge you receive carefully, and try not to become obsessed with proving your point.

Also, it’s best to avoid gossip (giving and receiving), because it could lead to potential blowback.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, February 7, 2022

We start the week with the Moon moving through Taurus, the sign of her exaltation.  The Moon makes several favorable aspects throughout the day, including a sextile to Jupiter and a trine to Venus.  The Taurean Moon is great for financial decisions, making large purchases, and investments. Since the Moon is in Taurus, it’s also time for a little indulgence. Perhaps a savory meal or a decadent treat would hit the spot just fine.

Tuesday, February 8, 2022

Mars in Capricorn forms a beneficial trine to Uranus in Taurus. Ordinarily, Mars-Uranus aspects can act impulsively and tend to gamble on outcomes foot loose and fancy free.  However, since Mars and Uranus are in earth signs, it may provide enough realism to make this aspect pay off. If you’ve been stuck in a rut, now is the time to shake things up and add new activities to your life that catch your interest and that you find exciting. You will notice that you have more courage than you ordinarily would, so this is an excellent time to take a risk. Relax your inhibitions, at least for a little bit.  After all, you only live this lifetime once.

Wednesday, February 9, 2022

The Moon moves into social Gemini during the early morning hours. It’s an excellent day to hang out with your friends or your network.  You may need mental stimulation, and the energy is available so that your needs are met. Sharing ideas with others may inspire you.

Thursday, February 10, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Gemini and aspects lucky Jupiter and trines Saturn in Aquarius. Your disposition will be positive, and you should find the course of the day enjoyable. If you need to work on your big picture objectives, today would be the day to do it.

Friday, February 11, 2022

Mercury conjoins Pluto for the third time in Capricorn. There may be an aura of intensity throughout the day, and you may find yourself at odds with others. Try to be as proactive as possible when dealing with the people in your life. Sometimes, it’s easiest to walk away than engage in something where you have no chance of winning.

Saturday, February 12, 2022

The Moon moves through Cancer, the sign she rules. She forms a beneficial aspect to Jupiter in Pisces during the day. This is wonderful for family time, connecting with your relatives, or close friends (chosen relatives). The energy is positive and should flow relatively easily.  However, your mood could quickly change during the evening, as the Moon opposes argumentative Mars. Avoid people who may purposely push your buttons.

Sunday, February 13, 2022

We close the week with the Moon still in Cancer, and she forms a beautiful trine to Neptune in Pisces. If you have creative projects, the Moon trine Neptune creates the perfect ambiance to get the imagination flowing. You will also be sensitive to the moods of others, so guard yourself carefully.

See you next week!
