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

So, I am sure that you are going to get sick of hearing two words by the end of March – Mercury retrograde.

Of course, most people know what happens during Mercury’s retrograde status because it has seeped into pop-culture and has become part of our everyday vocabulary.   For those of you that are not aware, look at this list:

  1. Potential communication issues
  2. Do not sign documents, move, or make firm decisions
  3. Electronics may become problematic, especially computers and cell phones.
  4. Possible automobile issues.
  5. Travel issues and concerns.

That is some list, isn’t it?  But don’t fret Mercury retrograde can be used as a positive tool and with Mercury making several aspects this week, it’s a great time to work with him rather than against him.

In mythology, Mercury played several roles, but the two most important were messenger of the gods and the psychopomp that ushered the souls of the dead into the underworld.  Psychologically, you could say that Mercury rules the process of the conscious mind, the process of the unconscious becoming conscious, and all the processes in between.

During this retrograde cycle pay close attention to your dreams, fantasies, and the areas where Mercury is causing chaos because it will hold the keys to the areas of your life where attention may be required.  Ultimately, by actively encouraging the unconscious to become conscious, Mercury retrograde may help you level up and begin a new cycle in your life.

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.

Cosmic Weather Forecast – October 22 – October 28, 2018

Get ready to dig deep this week because the Sun will move out of fair and balanced Libra and dives into the emotional and often turbulent waters of Scorpio.

Scorpio is one of the most misunderstood signs of the zodiac.  The sign of the scorpion governs the areas of life that many people would prefer not to discuss like personal desires, unconscious complexes, and oh, you guessed it, SEX. During Scorpio season, it’s a good idea to take a deep look at your desires, and whether or not you are receiving just a little of what you would like out of life?  Are your sexual needs being met?  Is self-sabotage an issue?

Scorpio season is the cyclical time of the year for you to work on becoming the best you, so that you can live your best life.  However, facing the issues lurking deep within the swampy waters of Scorpio is never easy, but the benefits we get from coming to terms with our personal ghosts and demons are worth it.

This week the Full Moon occurs in the sign of Taurus.  The Full Moon is the time of the month to begin to get rid of anything that hinders or drags us down based on the sign the Full Moon is in.  Taurus rules money, so this is an ideal cycle to get your personal finances in order, analyze your investments, or create a plan to resolve lingering debt.  Since Venus, the ruler of Taurus is retrograde, glaring problems could surface, but the good news is that they can effectively be resolved if you are willing to put forth the effort.

Now, let’s dig into this week….

Monday, October 22, 2018

Remember that digging deep stuff I mentioned earlier?  Well, the cosmos has a sense of humor because the day before Scorpio season officially begins, Mercury forms a sextile to Pluto.

Mercury sextile Pluto is great energy for us to recognize the areas of our lives that need to be resolved or problems that have eluded us in the past will suddenly be solved.  This aspect is all about digging up the truth and forces us to quit lying to ourselves about areas of our lives that may not be functioning properly, and although you may have stayed in denial on purpose, there will be an internal urge for you to break free.  Also, you may be called upon to speak your truth to help someone else in need.  Your wisdom and experience may be necessary to help them move to the next level.

The Sun moves into Scorpio and immediately slams head first into Uranus.  Expect the unexpected out of your relationships because oppositions involving Uranus tend cause the unexpected to occur.  However, the larger purpose of this aspect is to make you aware of things you may not normally consider.  This can lead to enormous insight into yourself and others, and often this insight can happen suddenly, which is how Uranus likes to operate.  A good old dash of shock and awe.

Wednesday, October 24, 2018

Sextiles provide us with opportunities, and perhaps more so with Venus being retrograde. On Wednesday, Venus forms a lovely sextile to dutiful Saturn and our relationship obligations in romantic and business partnerships will step on stage.  Venus sextile Saturn is great for sorting through your relationships, taking care of your responsibilities in them, and coming to terms with your expectations.  Venus sextile Saturn makes it easy for us to forge alliances and agreements by getting everything out in the open, so if you want to confront anything, this is the last opportunity to do so until April.

The Full Moon in Taurus occurs at 12:45 PM EST.  Full Moons are great for doing magic and intention work, and with this Full Moon occurring in Taurus, financial magic is recommended.

Thursday, October 25, 2018

There are no planetary aspects on Thursday, but the Moon continues to move through earthy Taurus.  If you have creative projects to work on, the day time hours will be perfect while the Moon sextiles Neptune.  However, expect tensions to rise Thursday evening when the Moon tangles with aggressive Mars.  Although you will need to remain proactive, standing in your personal power is necessary.

Friday, October 26, 2018

On Friday, the Sun forms a lovely conjunction to Venus.  This aspect is great for socializing and enjoying yourself.  So, get on your dancing shoes and go out and have some fun.  If you are single, Sun conjunct Venus is great energy to meet someone new but remember to take it slowly until after the first of the year when Venus and Mercury are both direct and out of shadow.

The Weekend

This weekend, the Moon moves through mercurial Gemini, which may make it difficult to focus on one thing at a time, especially for those getting ready for Halloween or attending Halloween celebrations.  The energy will be favorable for socializing, so problems will be minimal for most of you.

If you have business matters to attend to, there is a favorable aspect between the Sun and Saturn.  This weekend is great for tying up loose ends, so if you have projects that need to be finished, this weekend is great energy to get this done.

See you next week….
