Cosmic Weather Forecast – December 10, 2018 – December 16, 2018

Brace yourself!  After months of challenging aspects and more retrogrades than I can count, we enter a two-week cycle of nothing but positive aspects.

Can I get an amen, over here?

This week there are very few changes in the cosmos.  There is one sign change when Mercury moves into Sagittarius on Wednesday and one planetary aspect on Sunday as Venus in Scorpio sextiles Saturn in Capricorn.

So, it’s going to be short and sweet this week, but the upsurge of positive energy will be a welcomed relief.

Now on with the forecast…

Monday, December 10, 2018

The Moon moves through responsible Capricorn, and it’s time to dig in and get to work.  Projects and business-related activities are good to focus on while the Moon is in the sign of the goat.  During the late afternoon, you may want to pursue your agenda, but social pressures may interfere, which may cause a bit of tension.  Matters will improve once the Moon moves into Aquarius.

Tuesday, December 11, 2018

The Moon moves into Aquarius, and your focus will move to the great big world around you.  Connecting with friends and associates is a positive use of Aquarius’ social energy. Invite someone to a coffee shop or for dinner.  Communicating with like-minded people will revitalize your soul.

Wednesday, December 12, 2018

Mercury moves back into Sagittarius, the sign where Mercury went retrograde in November.  You may need to control your hold on spending while Mercury moves through the sign of the archer.  Sagittarius likes things to be larger than life but leave that to philosophical beliefs and big picture goals and not y our credit card balances.  Otherwise, the Moon forms a lovely sextile to the Sun, so overall it should be a good day.

Thursday, December 13, 2018

The Moon moves into emotionally sensitive Pisces during the early morning hours. Pisces is about charity and compassion, so reaching out to people in need or doing something in your community. This will evoke Piscean energy wisely, and you will find you feel better for doing it.  However, later this evening you need to put up your emotional shields, or you might go into overload.

Friday, December 14, 2018

The Moon continues to move through the sign of the fish throughout the day.  Try to get as much as you can get done during the morning hours because the Moon’s conjunction to nebulous Neptune may make it difficult to concentrate during the afternoon.  A positive way to work with Moon-Neptune energy is to take in a good movie, to listen to music, or doing spiritual work.  It’s best to leave the tough stuff for another day.

The Weekend:

On Saturday, the Moon spends most of the day void of course.  It’s not a good day to start anything new, so put your feet up and relax.  Perhaps some personal time is in order.  During the evening hours, the Moon moves into fiery Aries, and your energy levels will begin to return to normal.  Saturday evening is great for socializing and spending time out with others.  Put on those disco shoes and head out on the town.

The only astrological aspect of the week occurs on Sunday when Venus in Scorpio sextiles Saturn in Capricorn.  If you experienced relationship issues during Venus and Mercury retrograde, Sunday is a great day to work things out and cruise into the holidays without any lingering tension.

See you next week…

Cosmic Weather Forecast – October 29 – November 4, 2018

Cosmic Weather Forecast – October 29 – November 4, 2018

Sometimes to swim deep, you need to come up for air, and that is what happens this week.  The Sun remains in transformative Scorpio and Venus is still retrograde.

The biggest newsmaker this week is Mercury, which moves out of Scorpio and into heavenly Sagittarius.  Mercury, the communication planet, rules how you understand life, and in the sign of the archer, your attitude towards life is optimistic and philosophical with an eye towards future potentials and possibilities.  In simpler terms, Mercury is concerned with the ‘big picture’, and not day-to-day details, which allows you to strive towards creating a better future for yourself and the certainty to persevere long enough to make it happen.

In other news, Venus backs up into fair and balanced Libra creating a brand-new set of complications in relationships, but if you work through the issues, your relationships will be stronger than ever.

Finally, it’s Halloween week, and the veil between the spirit world is becoming increasingly thinner.  It’s an amazing week to connect to your spirits and your deceased ancestors but make sure you leave them some goodies because they love it when you show them proper respect.

Now, on with the forecast…

Monday, October 29, 2018:

As we head towards Halloween on Wednesday, Mercury conjoins Jupiter in Scorpio.  Mercury conjunct Jupiter is considered an extremely beneficial aspect.

First off, Jupiter is an intuitive planet, and this conjunction favors all forms of business activities.  If you need to release a product or start a new project, then do so because Mercury turns retrograde soon (Nov 16). Additionally, pay close attention to any business or career hunches you have because they will most likely be accurate.

Secondly, Mercury and Jupiter are both educational planets.  Mercury rules facts and details; whereas, Jupiter rules your ability to understand information and apply it to your life. While this aspect is active, it’s a great time to plan your future or set short-term goals. Make sure you take advantage of this aspect while it’s available because it only happens once a year.

Tuesday, October 30, 2018:

There are no planetary aspects today, but the Moon moves through family-oriented Cancer.  The early morning hours may be tense with the Moon opposed to Pluto, but the rest of the Moon’s trip through Cancer has only positive aspects to Jupiter in Mercury. So, if your day begins rocky, it will rapidly improve.  This evening is a great time to reach out and connect to family members.  Let them know you care with both your actions and words.

Wednesday, October 31, 2018:

Happy Halloween!  I hope that you get more treats than tricks this year but get prepared because Halloween is the most astrologically active day of the week.

First up, as I mentioned earlier, Mercury moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius, the sign he retrograde in on November 16th.  Throughout the next several weeks, Mercury’s focus is on the big picture, which allows you to see outside the box of day-to-day living.  Mercury in the sign of the archer is a great cycle to focus on goals and long-term strategies.  Mercury in Sagittarius usually has an optimistic view, which allows you to focus on giving birth to your potentials and possibilities.

Secondly, right before Venus retrogrades out of Scorpio and moves back into Libra, she will oppose Uranus.  Hard Venus/Uranus aspects are notorious for relationship problems, and this opposition will strongly influence the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius). Breakups happen, and often outside interests suddenly enter the picture. You may find that you are unhappy in your relationships or are no longer satisfied, which can easily lead to frustrations and upsets. Since Venus is retrograde, you may see your frustrations easier than you normally would and can then make changes to add a little spice and adventure so that you can curb your dissatisfaction.  However, if you take no action, your need to be free may supersede your need to work things out.

Finally, Venus moves out of Scorpio and back into Libra, which may give some relief to the fixed signs, but puts the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) on notice.  Venus rules Libra, and when she is retrograde in her sign, the issues around Venus retrograde (see blog) are amplified; however, the theme has changed.

Venus in Libra is concerned with balance and fairness.  Relationships that are out of balance may begin to have difficulties, especially if you have made sacrifices to support your partner. Although Venus in Libra dislikes arguments and selfishness, there comes a time when you have to stand up for yourself, and this may create necessary conflicts.  Conflict is not always bad; it can often lead to an equitable balance in the relationship that honors your needs as well as your partners.

Thursday, November 1, 2018:

Got wounds? Newsflash – we all do!  However, this week (and year), you get a window of opportunity to heal and release them as Jupiter forms a trine to Chiron.  Since Chiron is in Pisces and Jupiter is in Scorpio, this is a beneficial period for you to seek understanding into the areas of your life that may be wounded because Jupiter helps you understand your wounds on a deeper level, which is often the key to healing them.  You may want to consider workshops, spiritual practices, or therapy to help you peel your scabs off, but freedom from the past will help you create a better future. This aspect remains active until early December, which means you should pay close attention to any issues that creep up during the holiday cycle because these are the wounds that most likely needs healing.

Friday, November 2, 2018:

There are only lunar aspects on Friday, which is a relief from the deluge of aspects this week.  On Friday, The Moon moves into Virgo, and you will need to put your life in order because the worst thing for you right now would be tons of chaos. It’s a great day to figure out your holiday plans, including gifts that you may want to buy this year.  Virgo loves processes, so any that you can create to make your life easier would be beneficial.

The Weekend:

On Saturday, the Moon continues to move through Virgo, so finish up lingering tasks should be at the top of your priority list.  During the evening hours, the Moon forms a lovely sextile to Jupiter.  So, after finishing that list of chores that you need to complete, spend the evening relaxing with your friends or social circle.  Everyone, including you, needs a break once in a while.

Just a heads up, make sure you turn your clocks back an hour (if your state observes DST) because Daylight Savings Time comes to an end this weekend.

Sunday may be more difficult than Friday or Saturday.  The Moon moves into Libra and forms a tough square to Saturn, which often makes you feel off-center or discombobulated, which ultimately leads to self-doubt.  Proceed through the morning hours with caution and leave activities until the afternoon when the Moon is more favorably aspected.

See you next week…

Cosmic Weather Forecast – October 8, 2018 – October 14, 2018

In last week’s forecast, the big news of the week was Venus turning retrograde on Friday (10/5). Now, this week is filled with aspects that are challenging.  So, let’s be prepared and make the most of it.

Although Mercury makes the most aspects this week, including a sign change, Venus and Mars are major players.  However, Saturn in Capricorn is the week’s featured planet and his presence hovers over the entire week.

Saturn in Capricorn is about tradition – for better or for worse.  We are born into a family system with traditions and customs that are innate because of our heredity.  In some case, these traditions are our ‘go to mode’ when things get difficult or stressful, but in other cases these traditions could lead to dysfunctional behaviors that ultimately do not serve us well.

This week is no exception, so let’s dive in…

Monday – Tuesday:

We begin the week with the Moon in relationship-oriented Libra and the energy builds up to the New Moon that occurs on Tuesday. New Moons are about new beginnings and this week we are urged to do intention (magical) work around our relationships to make them more meaningful, and with Venus ruling the New Moon, we should begin to see the areas of our relationships that need improvement.  Then, we can begin to step forward building on solid ground.

The general energy of Monday and Tuesday is rather mixed. On Monday, the Moon forms a lovely trine to Mars in social Aquarius. This energy is great for networking, especially with career or business connections.  However, Tuesday is complicated with the Moon squaring Pluto. Power struggles may surface and may take over your day. Try to avoid reacting to others, but always stand your ground when necessary.

On a more positive note for Tuesday, Mercury moves into mysterious Scorpio.  Mercury in Scorpio gives us the ability to see things that we normally miss – including the hidden motivations of others or ourselves. Mercury in the sign of the scorpion provides us with a deeper understanding of our circumstances that will come handy this week.

Wednesday:

Wednesday presents us with a couple of troubling aspects: Mercury oppose Uranus and Venus square Mars.

Let’s begin with Mercury oppose Uranus.  This aspect is very mental, and our thoughts will be fast and furious with new ideas that may or may not be viable.  It may be necessary to test out anything before you apply it fully to your life. Mercury in opposition to Uranus causes us to be highly reactive and we say whatever is on our mind, which could lead to difficulties.

Mercury/Uranus bluntness dovetails into Venus square Mars. If you are in a relationship that has problems, this aspect can lead to arguments that could have difficult consequences, and even solid relationships could have a love spat or two. The best way to deal with his conflicting energy is to try to be considerate of your partners personal needs while acknowledging your own because one of the problems inherent in this aspect is feeling like you are sacrificing yourself for others, and your personal desires not being acknowledged. Use Wednesday to figure out your needs and don’t be afraid to express them.  Learning to compromise but getting some of what you want is necessary with Venus square Mars.

Thursday:

The general energy of Thursday is favorable. During the morning hours, you will have an opportunity to deal with intense feelings you may have repressed or ignored. Acknowledging these feelings could improve relationships because you will feel empowered to make beneficial changes.  On Thursday evening, the Moon will conjoin Jupiter and it’s a great time to do something fun and enjoyable.

Friday:

On Friday, the Sun in Libra will square Pluto in Capricorn and you may feel the need to make radical changes in your life by eliminating everything that may not be working for you.  A good place to start is the areas of your life where you feel out of control, and perhaps, overpowered. Nobody likes to feel that others have the upper hand, and you will be no different.  Once you let go of everything that no longer works in your life, progress will begin to occur, and positive changes will ultimately happen.

Now the good news on Friday is that you will receive a cosmic assist from Mercury forming a lovely sextile to Saturn. As I said earlier, Mercury in Scorpio lets you dig deep, so the areas of your life that need to be changed will be easily discovered and Saturn will help you deal with them in a manageable way by helping you create a feasible plan. Otherwise, Friday is a great day to finish up lingering tasks or responsibilities.

The Weekend:

Get your party hats out because the Moon will be in jovial Sagittarius.  It’s a great weekend to spend doing all the wonderful autumnal activities and festivals with family and friends.  You can spend the visit the Halloween festivals, hang out with friends and family, or do something spontaneous and exciting, but most importantly, have some fun.

But, don’t forget to drink some apple cider for me.

Enjoy!

See you next week…
