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

Solar Eclipse “Elements of this image furnished by NASA “

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

Cosmic Overview:

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

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

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

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

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

Enjoy your new beginning!

Now, on with the forecast…

Daily Breakdown

Monday, November 29, 2021

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

Tuesday, November 30, 2021

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

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

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

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

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

Wednesday, December 1, 2021

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

Thursday, December 2, 2021

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

Friday, December 3, 2021

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

Saturday, December 4, 2021

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

Sunday, December 5, 2021

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

See you next week!

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

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

Cosmic Overview

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

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

Now, on with the forecast…

Monday, November 22, 2021

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

Tuesday, November 23, 2021

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

Wednesday, November 24, 2021

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

Thursday, November 25, 2021

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

Friday, November 26, 2021

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

Saturday, November 27, 2021

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

Sunday, November 28, 2021

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

See you next week!

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

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

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

Cosmic Overview

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

Here is a cheat sheet to help you with topics.

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

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

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

Daily Breakdown

Monday, November 15, 2021

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

Tuesday, November 16, 2021

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

Wednesday, November 17, 2021

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

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

Thursday, November 18, 2021

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

Friday, November 19, 2021

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

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

Saturday, November 20, 2021

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

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

Sunday, November 21, 2021

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

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

See you next week…

Astrology Forecast for Week of November 8, 2021 – November 14, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of November 8, 2021 – November 14, 2021 features 5 major planetary aspects – Mercury conjunct Mars, Mercury square Saturn, Mars square Saturn, Sun trine Neptune, and Mercury oppose Uranus.

It’s going to be a volatile week that will likely spontaneously combust, so buckle your seat belts!

Cosmic Overview:

Last week, I said that in mid-November, the ‘bowels of hell’ are going to open – and surprise, this is the week it begins.

On Wednesday, we have three major aspects that all come together during the day. Mercury, the planet of communication, forms a conjunction with powerful and impulsive Mars during the morning hours, and then the trickster god squares Saturn.  Later in the day, Mars in full battle armor takes on Saturn himself, and the likely result will be increased tensions and frustrations over the next few days.

I’m not going to sugarcoat this; this series of aspects is rough business, and you need to stay on guard and try not to react as much as possible. Instead, you need to try to use your wise mind before making decisions. Of course, I will break the aspects down completely in the daily breakdown.

Anytime we go through rough cosmic energies, you need to take care of yourself, stay hydrated, and get plenty of rest. If you have a spiritual practice, I recommend meditation and taking breaks to reconnect with your higher source.

Daily Breakdown:

Monday, November 8, 2021

We open the week with the Moon moving through responsible Capricorn.  It’s an excellent day to clear off your to do list and bring order into your life.  The Moon forms a lovely sextile to Mars during the morning hours, which should help you manage any tasks that need completion.  Later in the day, the Moon trines Uranus.  Let your originality shine, and do not be afraid to show your uniqueness.

Tuesday, November 9, 2021

If you have creative projects that need attention, then Tuesday is the perfect time for it, as the Moon forms a beneficial aspect to Neptune in Pisces.  You will find it easier to let go of your personal concerns, and your inspirational juices will flow steadily. Additionally, you may be called upon to help someone in need, because the Moon sextile Neptune allows you to feel compassion and sympathy for others, especially those that are troubled or hurting.  Later in the day, the Moon conjoins Pluto in Capricorn, and you may have to stand up for yourself or claim your power.  Avoid letting anyone take advantage of you.

Wednesday, November 10, 2021

From an astrological perspective, Wednesday is the most important day of the week.

During the morning hours, Mercury conjoins Mars in Scorpio.  Mercury conjunct Mars comes with a warning label because your reactions may happen faster than your mind can process things, and this can lead to tension, arguments, and anger.  You need to be careful with what you say, because the force and intensity of Mars may lead to words or actions that may be difficult to repair or roll back.

Mercury will then form a tense square to Saturn in Aquarius.  Mercury square Saturn has difficulty expressing itself, is often fearful of other people’s thoughts or reactions, and can lead to feelings of being misunderstood or ignored. Of course, this can lead to frustration and even rage that may be amplified by Mars squaring Saturn on Wednesday evening. Since Mars square Saturn often limits or prevents our ability to act, you need to proceed with caution, especially if you are irritable or annoyed.  Feelings of self-doubt or existential anxiety may also be a concern.

Thursday, November 11, 2021

Happy Veteran’s Day!  For all those who have served, thank you for your service.

The Moon spends its last day in Aquarius. Make sure everything important is done early in the day, because the Moon will go void of course during the afternoon hours. However, before Luna voids out, she does form a lovely conjunction to Jupiter.  Matters should flow relatively easily this afternoon and evening, and your attitude should be optimistic.

Friday, November 12, 2021

Every week, even the most complicated, has a ray of sunshine that peeks out and lets us know that despite life’s challenges, there is always hope. This week, we have the Sun forming a beautiful trine to Neptune in Pisces.  Sun trine Neptune is an excellent opportunity to do soul work and get in touch with spirit. You will notice that your intuition is greatly increased, and you will have a profound sense of inner knowing. You may also be called upon to help someone in need because this aspect makes you more empathetic and charitable.

Saturday, November 13, 2021

The weekend starts with a challenging aspect, as Mercury opposes Uranus in Taurus. You will find your mind is in overdrive, and you may have difficulty focusing on the simplest of projects. This may create a sense of restlessness and anxiety, especially if you have recently been all work and responsibilities and experienced little enjoyment in your life. You may need to take a break from your routine and do something different. However, one thing to watch is your interactions with others. You may find that you are extremely blunt, and this may be off-putting and could cause rifts in relationships.

Sunday, November 14, 2021

We close the week off with the Moon moving into feisty Aries. It’s an excellent day to focus on yourself and your agenda. Despite the cosmic difficulties in the air right now, continue to push forward and press on!

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of November 1, 2021 – November 7, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of November 1, 2021 through November 7, 2021 features four major planetary aspects (Mercury trine Jupiter, Mercury square Pluto, Sun opposing Uranus, and Mercury sextile Venus), two sign changes (Venus and Mercury), and a New Moon in Scorpio.

Now, that’s a lot of energy! So, let’s dive in.

Cosmic Overview

The bulk of the aspects this week involve Mercury, who is currently moving through fair-and-balanced Libra. Anytime planets move through Libra, relationship issues will be front and center, but one of the most important features of Mercury in Libra is the way we communicate with others. As we move through the week, pay close attention to how you communicate.  Are your conversations productive and collaborative, or are they contentious and discordant? Try to spend time listening to others rather than merely reacting to them.

The other newsmaker this week is the New Moon in Scorpio.  This New Moon is tricky because it’s in an exact opposition to Uranus in Taurus. Uranus is the planet of freedom, and this New Moon is excellent if you want to shake things up and reboot your life.  It’s especially helpful for ridding yourself of energies, people, or situations that have been holding you back.  Sometimes, to have a new beginning, you need to completely leave the past behind. There is a warning with this New Moon: don’t play with Uranus, make sure you want dynamic change before activating this planetary energy.

Daily Breakdown:

Monday, November 1, 2021

We start the week off with a lovely aspect between Mercury and Jupiter. If you want to plan your goals for 2022, this would be an auspicious day to do it. Jupiter helps you understand the big picture, and Mercury helps you organize your thoughts and ideas. So, begin planning now and make it an excellent year!  Mercury trine Jupiter is also excellent for business matters and formalizing agreements.

Tuesday, November 2, 2021

Mercury forms a tough square to Pluto, and this aspect can lead to obsessive thinking.  Try to avoid pushing your agenda or ‘truth’ on too many people, because they may feel you are trying to coerce or control them. Of course, this could lead to feelings of frustration, because you may feel alienated and dismissed. On a positive note, Mercury – Pluto aspects may help you get in touch with your true feelings or uncover hidden aspects of yourself.

Wednesday, November 3, 2021

On Wednesday, the Moon moves through Libra. During the morning hours, emotions may simmer as the Moon squares turbulent Pluto. You may want to avoid power hungry people, especially on the work front. This afternoon, the skies will clear, and the cosmic weather will be more harmonious as the Moon sextiles Venus in Sagittarius.

Thursday, November 4, 2021

The New Moon (see above) occurs at 5:15 PM EST, so get your intentions ready. It’s time to make some magic!

In other news, the Sun will oppose Uranus later in the evening. The Sun oppose Uranus is an unstable aspect, so if your world has been a bit stale, you may have an urge to shake things up. One thing you can count on is that unexpected events will probably occur at the worst possible time, so keep your guard up. Also, the Sun oppose Uranus can lead to accidents. Performs tasks as thoughtfully as possible.

Friday, November 5, 2021

Friday gives us two sign changes – Venus moves into Capricorn, and Mercury leaves Libra and enters Scorpio.

During the morning hours, Venus moves into stable Capricorn. It’s time to leave the fun and adventure behind and live in the real world. Since Capricorn is a traditional sign, Venus loves the comforts and stability the sign of the goat provides. While Venus is in Capricorn, it’s the time of year for us to look at our responsibilities and duties in our relationships and make adjustments when necessary. Moreover, the more ‘work’ we put into our relationships, the more fulfilling they will ultimately be.

Later in the evening, Mercury makes a sign change when he moves into Scorpio.  Mercury in Scorpio is the detective placement of the zodiac. It gives you the ability to see beneath the surface and resolve problems you may have. Mercury – Pluto is also keen to get to the truth, especially if secrets lurk in the closet somewhere. However, make sure you use any knowledge acquired cautiously.

Saturday, November 6, 2021

If you are in a relationship, today is a great day for love, as Mercury sextiles romantic Venus. Mercury sextile Venus is excellent for expressing your feelings and letting your partner (or potential partners) know how you feel. It’s a great evening for a date night. So, go out on the town and have a little fun while you can, because the rest of November is cosmically tricky.

Sunday, November 7, 2021

We close the week out with the Moon moving through spirited Sagittarius. Sunday should be as optimistic and fun filled as Saturday, especially with the Moon sextile benevolent Jupiter. Spend the day with people you enjoy and forget the real world – at least until it knocks on your door on Monday when the Moon moves through Capricorn.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of October 25, 2021 – October 31, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of October 25, 2021 – October 31, 2021 features three major aspects (Venus square Neptune, Venus sextile Jupiter, and Sun square Saturn), and Mars is moving out of Libra and into his sign of Scorpio.

Cosmic Overview:

This week Mars moves out of Libra, where he is in detriment, and into Scorpio, the sign he rules. Mars in Libra is concerned with relationships and seeks the opinion and approval of others.  However, Mars in Scorpio is focused, determined, self-disciplined and strategic. While Mars is in Scorpio, you have the power to achieve results and the tenacity to follow your goals until you achieve what you want. So, it’s a great time to get out your goal list, pick one out, and work on it until you get results. A word of advice – don’t miss this cycle of Mars because it only happens once every two years. Mars enters Scorpio on October 30th.

Daily Breakdown:

Monday, October 25, 2021

The Moon moves through Gemini most of the day. If you need to get stuff done, make sure you do it during the morning hours, because the Moon will spend the afternoon hours void of course.  This evening, the Moon moves through Cancer, and you may feel ‘the feels’ a little more than you usually do.  It’s an excellent night to relax and practice some self-care.

Tuesday, October 26, 2021

Venus square Neptune is problematic for relationships based on fantasy and illusion. If you experience troubles, you may want to look at your relationship and question whether your relationship expectations are unrealistic. In many cases, life difficulties will force you to look at things realistically, leading to feelings of dissolution and disappointment.  Sometimes, betrayals may surface that leave you shattered and feeling deceived. As difficult as things may be, try to avoid falling into victim mindsets. Instead, try to face your feelings and manage them productively.

Wednesday, October 27, 2021

The Moon spends its last day in emotional Cancer.  The Moon forms a lovely trine to Neptune during the morning hours.  Moon trine Neptune is an excellent aspect for creative projects, and you will find that you are emotionally sensitive to others.  However, be on guard this evening because complicated emotions may surface as the Moon squares turbulent Pluto.

Thursday, October 28, 2021

On Thursday, Venus sextiles Jupiter in Aquarius. This is an aspect you want to use to your advantage, because it’s the last positive aspect between Venus and Jupiter (the lesser and greater benefics) for six months, because Venus turns retrograde in December. Venus sextile Jupiter is exceptionally beneficial and will definitely brighten your day. This aspect is excellent for financial concerns, investments, and legal matters.

On the relationship front, be mindful of Venus square Neptune that occurred on Tuesday.  Forgiveness and working through relationship problems are crucial, but falling back into toxic patterns or believing that things will magically change is not. Venus sextile Jupiter can easily overlook issues, and this can lead to wishful thinking. Avoid looking at relationship issues with rose-colored glasses.

Friday, October 29, 2021

The Moon moves through playful Leo and forms a lovely sextile to Mercury in Libra.  It’s a fine day to spend time with friends and like-minded people, so you can engage in insightful conversations and share life experiences.  For those in relationships, the Moon in romantic Leo is excellent for a date night.

Saturday, October 30, 2021

On Saturday, besides Mars moving into Scorpio, the Sun forms a nasty square to Saturn in Aquarius. When the Sun conjoins, sextiles, or trines Jupiter, we are blessed with the most positive days of the year.  Conversely, when the Sun conjoins, squares, or opposes Saturn, we experience the most challenges.  Saturday is one of those days!

Sun square Saturn brings out feelings of self-doubt and discouragement.  You may feel that forces are against you or are limiting your ability to succeed.  This may be a day filled with frustrations, and you may believe that you do not have the energy to push through your limitations.  The key to working with this aspect is to note the areas of your life that Sun square Saturn influences, and this will give you a roadmap of where to do personal work and build self-confidence. So, despite the way you feel, press in and press on!

Sunday, October 31, 2021

Happy Halloween! The Moon moves through dutiful Virgo throughout the day, so get your tasks done early so you can participate in festivities tonight. Just be on the watch for surprising tricks, because the Moon aspects unpredictable Uranus this evening.

See you next week!

The Astrology Forecast for the Week of October 18, 2021 – October 24, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of October 18, 2021 – October 24, 2021 features a Full Moon in Aries, two major aspects (Mars trine Jupiter and Mars square Pluto), Mercury and Jupiter turning direct, and the beginning of Scorpio season. Cosmic energies will continue to improve with a large blip on Friday, but it should be a decent week.

Cosmic Overview:

First, Mercury turns direct on October 18, and minor annoyances and communication snafus may occur as Mercury stations and changes directions. As we move through the week, Mercury retrograde issues, particularly with relationships, will slowly improve. This is an excellent week to repair any damage to relationships or friendships that happened while the retrograde was active. Also, anything that you have put on hold during the retrograde can now be initiated and completed.

Next, we have the Full Moon in Aries, which occurs on October 20. The good news is Mercury is now direct!  The bad news is that Mars (the ruler of Aries) is in detriment in Libra. So, to work with this energy, we must tweak how we would work with the planetary ruler.

The Full Moon in Aries is a two-week cycle of letting go of personal attributes that we may not like about ourselves or are no longer effective.  Are there any individual behaviors that you would like to let go of?  Oh, and news flash – we all have them! Since Mars is in Libra, you can also look at how you behave in relationships and let go of unhealthy personal patterns that may limit the relationship’s growth.  This work is not uncomplicated, but the fruits of your internal work will pay off in the end.

Now on with the forecast…

Monday, October 18, 2021

The first aspect of the week happens on Monday when Mars trines Jupiter. This will be an energetic week with plenty of activity, and since Jupiter is direct, there is the potential for good fortune and matters going your way. Mars trine Jupiter is a powerful aspect for putting yourself first and focusing on activities that promote your self-interests. Otherwise, Mars trine Jupiter is optimistic, energetic, and enthusiastic, so go after your desires with no regrets.

Tuesday, October 19, 2021

The Moon spends its first full day in Aries, preparing for the monthly Full Moon cycle on Tuesday. The Aries Moon is courageous, confident, and passionate, so the beneficial energies from yesterday will spill over into today. It’s an excellent day to focus on your wants, needs, and desires.  Sometimes, you need to put yourself first, and do you!

Wednesday, October 20, 2021

Besides the potent Full Moon (see above) that occurs today, the Moon battles with Mars and Pluto. As a result, you can expect your emotions to be on high alert, and there is potential for arguments and power plays.  Keep controlling and manipulative people at arm’s length, because they will only steal your joy.

Thursday, October 21, 2021

Today, the Moon spends its first full day in stable Taurus. Expect things to slow down to a crawl during the morning hours as the Moon squares Saturn.  Minor frustrations and annoyances may be prevalent throughout the day, but your energy levels should return as the Moon conjoins exciting Uranus this evening. Since the Moon moving through Taurus invites you to indulge in the pleasures of life, do something you deeply enjoy.

Friday, October 22, 2021

Remember that large blip I talked about at the beginning of the forecast? Well, it happens today as Mars tangles with Pluto.  Mars square Pluto is a discordant aspect that often provokes disagreements between people, especially if problems or animosities have been lurking in the background for a while.  You may experience fierce opposition from others. Avoid underhanded activities even if you feel they are justified because they will only lead to blowback.  Stay away from dangerous people and places!

Saturday, October 23, 2021

We change astrological seasons today as the Sun moves out of Libra and into Scorpio.  Scorpio season is about digging deep into the secret parts of ourselves – our fears, phobias, and dysfunctions.  Although the season’s energy is intense, we can conquer our personal demons with a bit of reflection and willingness to change.

Sunday, October 24, 2021

Finally, we close the week with the Moon moving through social Gemini. It’s an excellent day for fun, frolic, and great conversation.  Sharing your ideas and opinions with others will be vital to you at this time. However, this evening you may need an extra dose of caffeine or an energy drink, as the Moon squares Neptune.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for October 4, 2021 – October 10, 2021

Astrology Forecast for October 4, 2021 – October 10, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of October 4, 2021 through October 10, 2021 features three planetary aspects (Sun conjunct Mars, Sun conjunct Mercury, and Mercury conjunct Mars), a sign change for Venus, two planets turning direct, and a New Moon in Libra.

It’s going to be a busy week, but a relatively positive one. So, make sure you enjoy it while the good vibrations last. However, keep in mind that Mercury is still retrograde.

Cosmic Overview

The New Moon in Libra occurs on Wednesday, October 6. Although ordinarily, a New Moon in Libra would be an excellent time to attract a new relationship, Mercury is ‘retched out,’ and Venus (the ruler of Libra) is in her detriment in Scorpio. So instead, use this New Moon to create new paradigms within your current relationships, which are not limited to romantic ones.

If you are currently single, you can make a list of all the attributes you would like out of a mate and do cleansing magic to signify your desire for a fresh start. If you are in a relationship, you can use the New Moon to reset (such a lovely Mercury RX word) the energies and create a more fulfilling dynamic that will help improve the relationship’s overall health. In other relationships, you can modify how you work with the New Moon based on the needs of that relationship. The key is formulating new and productive ways to make them healthier.

Now, one with the forecast…

Monday, October 4, 2021

The Moon moves through Virgo and for most of the day opposes confusing Neptune. Therefore, it’s best to focus on tasks that require little effort or concentration because Neptune may keep you distracted and unfocused. However, you can use this energy to tap into spirit, do some meditation, or work on creative or artistic projects.

Tuesday, October 5, 2021

Whereas Monday is a blurry, unfocused mess, Tuesday is the exact opposite. The Moon moves into Libra and forms a lovely aspect to Saturn. It’s an excellent day to complete tasks that you need to finish and get the job done. If you need a solution to a problem today, the simplest solution is the right one.

Wednesday, October 6, 2021

Besides the New Moon occurring in Libra, the Moon makes several aspects throughout the day – a conjunction to Mars, a conjunction to Mercury, and a lovely trine to Jupiter in Aquarius. Overall, it should be a positive day with an energy boost from Mars, great conversations with friends and associates thanks to Mercury, and a more optimistic view of the future thanks to Jupiter. Try to keep a balanced mindset throughout the day.

Thursday, October 7, 2021

Venus moves out of turbulent Scorpio and enters joyful Sagittarius. This is a bit of relief for Venus, who prefers light over darkness. You will seek adventure in your relationships, and you will find that relationships that are stuck in a rut will not do it for you anymore. While Venus is in Sagittarius, it’s a wonderful time to add a little spice to your romantic life and liven things up a little. Venus remains in Sagittarius until November 5.

Friday, October 8, 2021

The Sun conjoins Mars in Libra. Ordinarily, this energy is excellent for starting projects or beginning new ventures, but with Mercury being retrograde, you should proceed with caution. Instead, begin to plan your objectives and strategies, and then you can enact them when Mercury goes direct on October 18. Further, if you have been unhappy with the condition of your life, this is a potent conjunction that will help you break free and begin to live the life you desire. Finally, for the air and fire signs, Sun conjunct Mars may provide you with a much-needed boost of energy.

Saturday, October 9, 2021

This week, Saturday is the only day that comes with a caution sticker – beware of bears and don’t purposely poke them. Mercury Rx will conjoin Mars in Libra, and you will need to put a watch on your tongue because you may say things you will later regret. Mercury conjunct Mars can be argumentative, reactive, and impulsive. So, make sure you keep your guard up. It is best to avoid people that may trigger you. On a positive note, if you need to perform tasks that require a lot of mental energy, this is an auspicious time to work on them.

Sunday, October 10, 2021

We close the week out with the Moon moving through fun-loving Sagittarius. It’s a magnificent day to break away from the daily grind and do things you enjoy. You may want to do a day trip, a Halloween-themed event, or do something amusing. The main takeaway from the Moon in Sagittarius is letting your spirit sore, and your inner child run free. You can adult another day!

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of September 27, 2021 – October 3, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of September 27, 2021 – October 3, 2021 features six major aspects (Venus trine Neptune, Sun trine Saturn, Venus square Jupiter, Mercury Rx square Pluto, Venus sextile Pluto, and Mercury Rx trine Jupiter) and the trickster god Mercury turns retrograde on Monday. So it’s going to be a busy week in the cosmos!

Cosmic Overview:

On Monday, Mercury turns retrograde in Libra.  So, relationships (ruled by Libra) are under the gun, continuing until October 18. So, I created this Mercury retrograde checklist to keep you in the know.

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

Now, on with the forecast…

Monday, September 27, 2021

Besides Mercury turning retrograde in Libra, the Moon spends the day in frenetic Gemini. You may find the afternoon hours a bit tricky, as the Moon squares Neptune.  Your emotions may be on overdrive, and you may easily react to those around you.  If you are confused about making decisions, sit on them for now because your emotions may highly influence you. Later this evening, the Moon trines Jupiter giving a more optimistic tone to the evening hours. It’s a great time to enjoy the company of others.

Tuesday, September 28, 2021

The Moon moves into the sign of Cancer, and family matters may be an important theme throughout the day. You may need to resolve minor issues with relatives during the evening hours. Try to be guided by your emotions but not controlled them.

Wednesday, September 29, 2021

Wednesday is a contradiction of opposites. On the one hand, Venus trines Neptune, and it’s not the best time to get things done because your mind will be distracted by your daydreams and fantasies. However, this energy is perfect for creative projects that need vision and inspiration.  On the other hand, the Sun forms a productive trine to Saturn.  The Sun trine Saturn is ordinarily a great day to be disciplined and focus on the structures in your life. Everyone needs a foundation to live a productive life, and now is an excellent time to examine the things in your life that promote your individual growth.

The key for today is finding balance (such a Libra word) between both worlds. It’s good to let go, play, and forget about the real world, but we still need to take care of our responsibilities and obligations when necessary. If you’ve been working too hard, taking some time to relax and smell the roses may be required. But, if you’ve been lax and unfocused, you may want to step up your game.

Thursday, September 30, 2021

We follow up yesterday’s Venus trine Neptune with Venus square Jupiter. Ordinarily, squares are challenging, but since Venus and Jupiter are both benefic planets, acting impulsively is the most difficult part of this aspect. Avoid doing anything simply because you need excitement and action in your life. This could lead to decisions you may later regret. However, it’s a great time to socialize and do things you enjoy.

Friday, October 1, 2021

It’s time to dive deep on Friday when Mercury retrograde squares Pluto. It’s an auspicious day to get to the root of internal struggles and resolve them. The insights you receive today may lead you to make changes in your life that foster significant life improvement and individual growth. Also, if you experienced problems with others last week (when Mercury squared Pluto while he was direct), now would be a good time to clear the air, make amends if necessary, and move forward.

Saturday, October 2, 2021

Your relationships with others will be exceptionally intense, and Venus sextiles Pluto.  Your emotions will be in overdrive, and you will seek more profound experiences with those around you.  You can use your experiences to understand your feelings and use these newfound insights to improve your relationships.

Sunday, October 3, 2021

We close the week with a lovely aspect between Mercury and Jupiter. Sunday is an excellent day to reevaluate your plans and make adjustments or modifications if necessary.  However, wait until Mercury turns direct before acting. It’s also a great day to let go of the old by releasing any negative feelings you’ve been holding onto and begin to focus on the positive and your future potential.

See you next week!

The Astrology Forecast for September 20, 2021 – September 26, 2021

The astrology forecast for September 20, 2021 – September 26, 2021, features four aspects (Mercury trine Jupiter, Mercury square Pluto, Venus opposes Uranus, and Mars trines Saturn), the Full Moon in Pisces, and the beginning of Libra season.

Cosmic Highlight:

The main highlight of the week is the Full Moon in Pisces, which happens on Monday. So, get out your snorkel; it’s time to swim.  Your intuitive faculties will be at their peak, so it’s an auspicious time to focus on your dreams, meditation, creativity, and connecting with spirit. Since the Full Moon starts a two-week cycle of releasing and letting go of things that no longer serve you, it’s an excellent time to work on addictions and self-defeating behaviors. Use this cycle wisely.

Now, on with the forecast…

Monday, September 20, 2021

We start the week with a beautiful aspect between Mercury in Libra and Jupiter in Aquarius. This aspect is called a trine, and it’s harmonious, peaceful, and light-hearted energy. Mercury-Jupiter aspects are great for signing documents, finalizing contracts, and focusing on plans for the future. So, your mood should be relatively optimistic throughout the day.

Now, a word to the wise: Take advantage of this aspect while you can. Next week, Mercury turns retrograde, and there will not be another easy aspect to Jupiter, while Mercury is direct, until November 1.

Tuesday, September 21, 2021

The Moon moves through energetic Aries, and during the morning, the Moon opposes challenging Mars in Libra. Expect possible disagreements with others. People will be easily agitated, so you may need to keep a low profile. Later in the day, the Moon sextiles Saturn. Focus on projects and tasks that matter.

Wednesday, September 22, 2021

Trouble is brewing early in the day, as Mercury forms a nasty aspect to Pluto in Capricorn. The most significant difficulty with Mercury square Pluto is that it can easily provoke arguments. Mercury rules the mind, and Pluto is about power. So, when we put these two principles together, there is a tendency to try to get people to think as we do, or for them to try to force us into thinking like them. But, of course, whenever you try to apply pressure (squares) to someone, there becomes a need to stand one’s ground. So, it’s best to avoid controversial or ‘hot button’ topics today. Also, Mercury square Pluto can lead to obsessive thoughts and, in some cases, paranoia.

The best way to work with Mercury square Pluto is through introspection. You can use this energy to dig deep within your soul and discover insights you didn’t know or weren’t aware of before. If worked with correctly, this aspect can be life-altering.

There is a ray of sunshine on Wednesday – the Sun moves out of Virgo and into Libra. Although the tension of Mercury square Pluto and the upcoming Venus in opposition to Uranus may be high, the Sun in Libra may be balanced enough that people respond proactively.

Thursday, September 23, 2021

Last week, Venus formed a gnarly square to Saturn. I wrote about it in last week’s forecast. This week, Venus makes an equally challenging aspect, as she opposes Uranus in Taurus.

On its most basic level, Venus oppose Uranus, which means that upsetting events may occur in relationships, leaving you feeling shaken up and unsettled.  However, Venus oppose Uranus, which indicates that ritualistic everyday experience in relationships will leave you unsatisfied. Of course, suppose we don’t ‘live’ life to the fullest. In that case, it tends to erupt unconsciously, leading to sudden upset and potential breakups (especially if it triggers your natal chart) because Uranus seeks freedom from conventional values it perceives as restricting and monotonous.

On the practical level, it’s important to spice up your relationships on your own. If you find things getting too dull or repetitive, and your relationship is losing its magic, then do what you can to liven it up. This will feed your relationship with new experiences, enriching them with growth opportunities.

Friday, September 24, 2021

Today, the Moon moves through earthy Taurus. It’s an excellent day to focus on financial concerns, improve your self-esteem, and enjoy everyday life. Do something you love, and a cheat meal is recommended.

Saturday, September 25, 2021

Mars forms a productive trine to Saturn. It’s an excellent day to focus on projects and tasks that need focus and discipline. You can also use this energy to re-examine your long-term goals. If you made some that were more ‘dreams’ than actual achievable goals, you could adjust them to something realistic and doable.

Sunday, September 26, 2021

We close the week out with the Moon moving through Gemini. It’s a beautiful day to socialize and connect with friends or your broader social system. It should be a positive day. Make the most of it because Mercury turns retrograde tomorrow!

See you next week!
