Cosmic Weather Forecast – February 25, 2019 – March 3, 2019

Cosmic Weather Forecast – February 25, 2019 – March 3, 2019

So, there is not much to talk about this week because the cosmic energy is minimal – we have only two aspects and a single sign change.  Take advantage of this energy while you can because we do not get another astrological break until the end of the month and Mercury goes retrograde next week and will stir up trouble.

Venus is the major playing this week and love and money are going to take center stage, especially when Venus moves out of structured Capricorn and into Aquarius.  While Venus is in the sign of the water bearer, relationship needs are met through friendship and intellectual stimulation, and in most cases, expresses itself in a detached and often ambivalent way.  Venus in Aquarius is ethical and loyal with a strong distaste for intense emotions and will shut down if it feels like it is being emotionally manipulated.

On the personal level, Venus in Aquarius reflects a cyclical period where we need to look at our relationships using reason and logic rather than through emotional connection and earthy necessities. If your relationship is not working, then it’s time to look at the reasons why problems are occurring, which requires honesty yet will give you the strategy to improve your relationships.

Financially, Venus in Aquarius is effective to develop financial strategies for the future.  Again, using a detached and emotional perspective, this placement provides you with a cool and logical approach that will help you see problems in your current financial situation and will provide you with the tools to deal with them.  Since Saturn, the natural ruler of Aquarius is moving through goal-oriented Capricorn, your chance of success and resolving your financial issues once and for all.

Now, on with the forecast…

Cosmic Weather Forecast – February 18, 2019 – February 24, 2019

So, this week we have so much astrological energy that it may give you whiplash because almost every area of your life will be affected, but the good news is that the cosmic weather is all positive.

Can I get an amen, especially after that intense Mars – Uranus conjunction last week?

We have a couple of headliners this week – The Sun moves into Pisces and we have a Full Moon in Virgo.

On Monday, we leave the airy socially conscious sign of Aquarius and dive deeply into the watery world of emotional Pisces.  In Kabbalah, Pisces is considered the sign of joy because of the amount of light you will receive from the universe and you will find that you are more compassionate, understanding, and willing to help those around you.  However, be on guard and try to keep your personal boundaries in place because Pisces energy is so receptive to others that it is easy for people to take advantage of you.  Also, Pisces season heightens your intuition and creative abilities, and everyone can use more of that.

The Full Moon occurs in Virgo on Tuesday.  Now, this is an interesting Full Moon because it happens at the earliest degree of Virgo and reflects that old things must come to an end and that you need to embrace the new.  Holding on to ‘dead works will lead to apathy and depression, so do yourself a favor and just let it go regardless of how difficult it may be.

On the magical level, we can use this Full Moon to eliminate unhealthy patterns, dysfunctional behaviors, and self-destructive habits.  Additionally, since Virgo does have influence over our jobs, if you want to leave your current job and find something new, you have a six-month window to work through and then in late summer begin to magically petition for the job you ultimately want.

Now, on with the forecast…

Cosmic Weather Forecast – February 11, 2019 – February 17, 2019

So, there are only a couple astrological aspects this week and a single sign change, but that doesn’t make the week any less potent.  In fact, this is one of the most power-packed weeks of the year as Mars, the warrior god, takes center stage.

Mars is about getting what you want and desire. He is the fighter planet for the Sun, so when he is the major planetary energy of the week, our ability to push our will onto the outer world becomes increasingly important.  Now, whether the outer world is going to work with us is another story.

The most important aspect of the week is Mars conjunct Uranus, which happens on Wednesday.  Classically, Mars conjoined Uranus tends to erupt on the world stage, so be prepared for some shocking unexpected event that may occur this week.  On the personal level, events that leave us feeling frustrated may cause explosions of their own, so it’s important to try to maintain your composure throughout the week.

Mars conjunct Uranus remains active for the entire week.

Now, on with the forecast…

Monday, February 11, 2019

We start Monday off with the Moon moving through earthy Taurus. Taurus loves luxury and anything elegant or scrumptious.  Monday is great for a cheat day and since the only aspect that the Moon makes is a sextile to Venus, going out to dinner with friends or your significant other may be the cherry on top of your cosmic ice cream sundae.

Tuesday, February 12, 2019

The Moon continues its trek through Taurus and forms several beneficial aspects to Neptune, Saturn, and Pluto.  It’s a good day to focus on financial and business concerns.  Anything you focus on should prove successful, so put your best foot forward.

Wednesday, February 13, 2019

Mars conjoins Uranus during the early morning hours and your impatience will be apparent throughout the day.  If you feel aggravated by others, then it’s best to take a deep breath and walk away before you do something you may regret later.

One way to work through this aspect and its abundance of energy is to do something that expresses your individuality.  You need something that has a personal stamp on it for you to feel happy and satisfied with your life.

An important note:  Avoid doing anything risky because Mars conjunct Uranus is rather accident prone.

Thursday, February 14, 2019

Happy Valentine’s Day!  Mars moves out of his own sign and into earthy Taurus.  Although Mars settles down in Taurus, this energy gives Mars a very determined edge that lets you overcome just about anything. Mars in Taurus is great for business because it gets things done, which is great if you have projects that need effort and elbow grease to get them completed. The only thing you must do is learn to give up if something seems pointless.

Friday, February 15, 2019

The Moon moves into emotional Cancer during the early morning hours and your moods may fluctuate throughout the day.  The Moon forms an opportunistic sextile to Mars, which will give you a boost of energy when needed. Since the Moon is in Cancer, it’s a great day to reach out to family members, especially those you haven’t been in touch with for a while.

The Weekend

On Saturday, the Moon continues to move through Cancer, but it forms aspects that are challenging – oppositions to Venus, Saturn, and Pluto. Your emotions may be on edge, so it may be a great day to stay in and relax. Otherwise, conflicts with others may spoil your day.

Venus and Neptune form a sextile on Sunday.  This is a great day to focus on relationships because you are sensitive to your partner’s needs.  If you missed Valentine’s Day, today would be a great time to celebrate with that special person you love.  If you are single, use this energy for artistic or creative endeavors.

See you next week…

Cosmic Weather Forecast – February 4, 2019 – February 10, 2019

So, this week we have nothing but positive aspects.  Whew!  We can all breath a sigh of relief because this type of energy doesn’t happen often.  However, there is a catch – we need to make sure we take full advantage of it by ‘taking action’ and not letting this potent period pass us by.

The headliner of the week is the New Moon in Aquarius.  Aquarius is the sign of the group, collective thoughts, and higher-minded ideals.  When you combine Aquarian energy with the New Moon it’s a great time to explore expanding your sphere of influence.  You can do this by seeking out new friendships, getting involved in groups with like-minded individuals, participating in meetup groups, or even joining the local country club.  The key from this potent lunation is the need for support from those around you that are not bound by familial ties and obligations but from social connection and likeability.

New Moon cycles are great for magical and intention work.  You can use this New Moon to attract new friends, standing up for your beliefs, or even succeeding with activism activities.  The New Moon in Aquarius is about bringing people together by engaging in our similarities and our collective goals rather than our differences.

Now, on with the forecast…

Monday, February 4, 2019

Besides the New Moon that occurs in Aquarius on Monday (see above), the Moon makes harmonious aspects to Jupiter and Mercury.  This is a good day for business activities, signing contracts, or resolving legal matters.  If you have unresolved issues or recently had a conflict with a friend or associate, Monday is an opportunistic time to resolve disagreements and patch things up.

Tuesday, February 5, 2019

Happy Chinese New Year!  The Moon spends its last day in social Aquarius and once again makes several enjoyable aspects throughout the day. Tuesday is good for networking or socializing with friends.  As the Moon sextiles Uranus, a surprising new alliance may occur unexpectedly.

Wednesday, February 6, 2019

The Moon spends its first full day in watery Pisces.  You will find that you are more sensitive to the emotions and intentions of those around you.  Since the Moon forms a lovely sextile to Venus, it’s a great day to relax, pamper yourself, and perhaps spend time with your significant other.  If you are single, a night with your tribe may be on the menu.

Thursday, February 7, 2019

Thursday is a day to highlight in your calendar because it’s one of the most positive days of the year with the sun forming an opportunistic sextile to Jupiter.  Your outlook on life will be positive and you will easily notice opportunities you should take advantage of when they are presented to you.  All group projects and activities are encouraged because it’s easy to work with others while this aspect is active.  Also, Thursday is an amazing day to look at your goals and ambitions for the next few months.

Friday, February 8, 2019

The Moon moves into Aries during the morning hours on Friday giving you an extra boost of energy – kind of like a cosmic Redbull.  The good news is that you can use this power fuel to get things accomplished, but the bad news is that you may be highly reactive to people around you.

Friday evening is not a night to go out on the town because the Moon forms a complicated square to Venus.  Conflicts with others are highly possible, so if you can avoid personal interactions, then do so.

The Weekend:

Although Friday evening will be tense, Saturday will be easier.  Mercury forms a nice aspect to Uranus and it’s a great day to spend with your social circle or other like-minded individuals.  If you’ve been feeling a bit of cabin fever over the winter months, this would be a great day to get out.

On Sunday, Mercury leaves Aquarius and dives into the deep waters of Pisces.  Mercury remains in Pisces until mid-April which gives us an extended period of intuitive insight.  Mercury in Pisces is great for creative or artistic based projects.  However, be prepared, Mercury goes retrograde in Pisces in early March and direct communications with others will become more complicated.

See you next week…

Cosmic Weather Forecast – January 28, 2019 – February 3, 2019

So, this week is a mixed bag of tricks when it comes to astrological aspects, but Saturn in Capricorn rules the roost and despite the day-to-day changes in energy, the need for structure and stability will overlay everything this week.

One of the most interesting aspects of the week is a sextile between Saturn and Neptune.  In 2016, we got a bird’s-eye view when Saturn squared Neptune. Of course, this was expressed through the 2016 presidential election and Brexit.  The forces of structure, stability, entitlement, and the establishment came face to face with the disenfranchised, the invisible, the left behind, and the financially challenged. Although the urban areas thrived over the last decade, the rural areas were forgotten and their communities were decaying, which led to the election of Donald Trump and Britain’s vote to leave the European Union.  However, both the 2016 presidential election and Brexit are shrouded in controversy and potentially corrupt covert behaviors.

This year, Saturn and Neptune are forming a sextile which provides an opportunity for these drastically different planets to come together.  Perhaps, we will see Saturn act compassionately and begin to look at global repercussions rather than the bottom line, which may benefit only a select few.  Alternatively, Neptune may realize that the pathway to an inclusive society may involve everyone putting forth an effort, being responsible, and accepting a drastically changing world that pushed towards a progressive future rather than an antiquated past. Regardless, we must come together in order to heal the pains that divide us and part of that may involve accepting harsh truths and swallowing bitter reality or continue down this dangerous path of never-ending division.

Now, on with the forecast…

Monday, January 28, 2019

The Moon moves through emotional Scorpio and forms a sextile to Pluto in Capricorn.  Although your emotions may be heightened, it’s still an opportunistic time to stand in your personal power.  Let your feelings be known but remember to keep other people’s feelings in mind, as well.

Tuesday, January 29, 2019

On Tuesday, you will find the need to express yourself important, not only because you have something to say, but because newly discovered insights into yourself have made self-expression the main concern and part of your greater purpose.  You may even find that you will earn others respect by speaking your truth.

Wednesday, January 30, 2019 – Thursday, January 31, 2019

The Moon moves through joyful Sagittarius and makes wonderful aspects to Venus and Uranus.  The next two days are great to spend time with loves ones and perhaps do something different to spice up your love life. This energy will continue through the weekend because Venus will trine Uranus on Saturday.  Sometimes, we all need to let down our hair a little.

Friday, February 1, 2019

We take a small break from the positive energy of the past few days when Mars forms a difficult aspect to Pluto.  On one hand, this aspect is supercharged to pursue your ambitions and you are very motivated to level up. On the other hand, you may find opposition from others and they may attempt to thwart your progress.  You need to keep your cool and avoid doing anything underhanded or ruthless.  Also, avoid dangerous areas because Mars square Pluto can be violent.

The Weekend

The Moon moves through structured Capricorn over the weekend, which means that it’s a great weekend to wrap up loose ends or take care of long-term responsibilities.

On Sunday, Mercury forms a lovely opportunistic sextile to Jupiter.  Despite it being a weekend, it’s a great time for business opportunities or strategic planning.  Sunday is also a great day for contractual obligations.

See you next week…

 

Cosmic Weather Forecast – January 14, 2019 – January 20, 2019

This week is filled to the brim with astrological energy – both beneficial and challenging.

So, buckle up buttercup, and prepare for some turbulence.

We begin the week with the Sun in Aquarius, and Aquarius seasons is one of my favorite seasons of the year because it allows us to break free of anything that has been holding us back and Aquarius is our personal revolution month to let go of self-defeating behaviors, relationships, careers, or groups that are holding us back.

Aquarius is not concerned with the now, it is concerned with the future and wants to leave the past behind.  This might be difficult for earthy (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) dispositions, but we all (even the earth signs) have things we need to eliminate from our lives.  The good news is that Uranus, Aquarius’ co-ruler, is moving through energetic Aries and gives us the boost of energy necessary to take the challenge to free ourselves once and for all.  Whereas Saturn, Aquarius other co-ruler is moving through its own sign of Capricorn ensuring that we will land on solid ground if we are willing to do the work and put for the effort necessary to move forward, which gives us the green light to take risks.

In other cosmic news, we have a major lunar eclipse on Monday in fiery Leo.

Eclipses are complex and influence many areas of life, especially the political, which is why there’s a flurry of news around eclipses.  We have experienced a plethora of never-ending breaking news since the solar eclipse occurred in Capricorn two weeks ago.  Moreover, you can expect more political turbulence with the lunar eclipse, as well.

On the personal level, the sign of Leo involves self-focus and you will notice a lot of people that are rather self-involved over the next two weeks, perhaps annoyingly so.  But all astrological positions have a purpose including the lunar eclipse in Leo.  On a deeper level, this Leonine eclipse reflects a six-month period where we focus on our personal needs apart from the group.  In other words, when nobody is around and when there isn’t anyone looking, who are you? And perhaps, more importantly, who do you want to be?

Now, on with the forecast…

Monday, January 21, 2019

Besides the lunar eclipse in Leo, we have a major aspect between Mars and Saturn that occurs on Monday.

First, let me say that these two planets together are very frustrating, and it will feel like you are going no place in a hurry.  You may feel that people (including family members and loved ones) are discouraging your desires and they may even doubt your actions, which may lead to feelings of insecurity, self-doubt, and succumbing to your fears.  Although these people may have the best of intentions, do not let them stifle your ambitions.  Instead, continue to push forward and realize that slow and steady wins the race and remember the more you persevere and continue to go after the prize, you will ultimately succeed.

Tuesday, January 22, 2019

You may need to put your material ambitions aside, if even for a day, as Venus and Jupiter conjoin in Sagittarius.  Venus and Jupiter are great for relationships but focus and self-discipline are not two keywords associated with these two planets.  Instead, you may want to focus on your relationships and partnerships because Venus-Jupiter aspects tend to bring out the best in everyone and more ‘good feeling’ activities are useful to increase morale.  This aspect is meant to be enjoyed, so try to have some fun today.

Wednesday, January 23, 2019

Your mind will be in overdrive today as Mercury in Capricorn forms a difficult square to Uranus in Aries.  Thoughts and ideas will flood your mind and since this is a tense aspect, you may feel anxious and overwhelmed.  You should not focus on activities that require concentration and precision and try to avoid hasty statements (the tongue tends to flap without thinking with Mercury-Uranus aspects) that you may not be able to take back.  Be practice, not reactive.

Thursday, January 24, 2019

On Thursday, Mercury moves out of earthy Capricorn and moves into airy Aquarius.  Mercury in Aquarius places ideas and concepts on equal footing to physical reality and this position is great for understanding patterns or how something works.  Mercury, in the sign of the water bearer, likes to get to the truth and will analyze everything in order to discover it, which is particularly useful for problem-solving and making changes in your life.  Mercury remains in Aquarius until February 11, 2019.

Friday, January 25, 2019

The final aspect of the week occurs on Friday when Mars in Aries forms a lovely trine to Jupiter in Sagittarius.

Mars trine Jupiter is an extremely positive aspect.  Pretty much any activity you choose to pursue will turn out successful.  If you need to do something to advance your own cause, this aspect provides you with enormous foresight to achieve your goals.  Take advantage of this energy while it’s available because it won’t happen again until late July.

The Weekend

The Moon spends the weekend moving through Libra and Scorpio and forms a few troubling aspects.  Relationships may be tense, and you may feel overwhelmed emotionally. So, you may want to spend as much time as you can alone or try to avoid others as much as possible until more positive energies are available.

See you next week…

Cosmic Weather Forecast – January 14, 2019 – January 20, 2019

This week, two dominant themes become active, and people’s frustration meters will go through the roof as Venus squares confusing Neptune and Mars square limiting Saturn. So, you may want to clutch your pearls because things are about to get real. VERY REAL!

Capricorn energy remains dominant throughout the week, which is beneficial for business and career opportunities. Since we are still in the New Moon cycle, new opportunities could prove fruitful and you should take advantage of them.  However, this week will be a roller-coaster for relationships. If your relationship is not grounded (in reality) and based on unrealistic expectations, you may feel frustrated, depressed, and dismayed when Venus squares Neptune.  In fact, many relationships may end because Mars square Saturn will leave you feeling like you are driving with the breaks on and leads to reactive behavior.  If your relationship goes through struggles, it’s a good time to do a reality check to make sure that the relationship is aligned with your values and personal desires.  If it’s not, you may need to deal with these issues before your relationship can move forward.

In other cosmic news, Jupiter in Sagittarius dominates this week’s energy.  Despite everything happening in your life, you need to keep your big picture objectives in mind and continue to strive to achieve them.

Now, on with the forecast…
