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

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

Damn! That’s a lot of energy

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

Cosmic Overview

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

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

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

Daily Breakdown

Monday, February 28, 2022

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

Tuesday, March 1, 2022

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

Wednesday, March 2, 2022

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

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

Thursday, March 3, 2022

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

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

Friday, March 4, 2022

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

Saturday, March 5, 2022

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

Sunday, March 6, 2022

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

See you next week!

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

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

Cosmic Overview

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

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

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

Daily Breakdown

Monday, February 21, 2022

The Moon moves through emotionally intense Scorpio. The morning hours should be relatively harmonious and stress free, with the Moon forming a lovely trine to the Sun in Pisces. However, during the evening hours, the Moon squares Mercury, and it would be best to avoid emotionally charged conversations. Try to wait until the cosmic energies are more favorable and your emotions have simmered, before proceeding with any course of action.

Tuesday, February 22, 2022

It’s going to be a challenging day, as the Moon continues to move through Scorpio and forms a tense square to Saturn. You may go through feelings of insecurities and self-doubt throughout the day. The good news is that during the late afternoon, the Moon will sextile Venus and Mars, which should lighten the mood and energy through the evening hours. It’s an excellent time to escape the problems of the real world and do something enjoyable.

Wednesday, February 23, 2022

Mars forms a lovely sextile to Neptune in Pisces. Wednesday is not the most energetic day, because Mars in aspect to Neptune is more introspective and contemplative than he is aggressive. It’s an excellent day to ponder your goals and the current state of your life. You may even realize that you need to course correct and take a different path. Additionally, you may be emotionally sensitive to the needs of others, and could be called upon to help someone in need.

Thursday, February 24, 2022

Besides Mercury forming a square to Uranus, Venus sextiles Neptune. It’s an excellent day for love and romance, and if you are in a relationship, it’s the perfect night for a date or to spend time together.  You will be sensitive to the needs of your partner and willing to provide them with the support they need. For the single people, it’s an auspicious time to explore the arts and engage with things you love and find beautiful.

Friday, February 25, 2022

The Moon enters dutiful Capricorn at 11:29 AM EST/8:29 PST. Today is about focusing on your duties, responsibilities, and ambitions. Job and career issues may be a central focus throughout the day. Later this evening, you may want to let your hair down and have some fun as the Moon sextiles the Sun in Pisces.

Saturday, February 26, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Capricorn and forms favorable aspects to Uranus and Jupiter.  It’s a great day to shake things up and do things outside the box. Approaching things in new ways may bring insight and inner revelation. Also, pay close attention to opportunities that may seem far-fetched, they may be the key to opening the door to everything.

Sunday, February 27, 2022

The early morning hours will be filled with intensity as the Moon conjoins Venus, Mars, and Pluto. You may need to closely manage your emotions and keep a close watch on your tongue. It’s easy to say something you may later regret if you are emotionally charged. The good news is that the Moon moves into Aquarius later in the day, which should improve your mood enormously. Spend the afternoon socializing and connecting with your social circle.

See you next week!

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

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

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

Cosmic Overview

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

But, why?

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

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

Daily Breakdown

Monday, February 14, 2022

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

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

Tuesday, February 15, 2022

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

Wednesday, February 16, 2022

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

Thursday, February 17, 2022

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

Friday, February 18, 2022

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

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

Saturday, February 19, 2022

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

Sunday, February 20, 2022

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

See you next week!

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

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

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

Let’s dive in…

Cosmic Overview

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

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

Daily Breakdown

Monday, February 7, 2022

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

Tuesday, February 8, 2022

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

Wednesday, February 9, 2022

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

Thursday, February 10, 2022

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

Friday, February 11, 2022

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

Saturday, February 12, 2022

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

Sunday, February 13, 2022

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

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of January 31, 2022 – February 6, 2022

The Astrology Forecast for the week of January 31, 2022 through February 6, 2022 features two major aspects (Mars sextile Jupiter, Sun conjunct Saturn), a New Moon in Aquarius, and Mercury turns direct in Capricorn.

Let’s dive right in…

Cosmic Overview

This week, the New Moon occurs in forward looking Aquarius. This is an extremely social New Moon that’s excellent for building your network and circle of friends. It’s also perfect for joining groups or organizations with like-minded ideas and beliefs. The sign of Aquarius is about progress, and it’s wise to surround yourself with people that support your personal vision and leave the haters behind.

In other news, Mercury turns direct in Capricorn on Thursday as his retrograde cycle ends. Over the past week, the focus has been on inner truths, and with Mercury going direct, you will face facts that may be radically different than your “truth”. Reconciling these two facts is important, because you can use knowledge and lessons learned to make your life better once Mercury slides back into Aquarius. Mercury moves into Aquarius on February 14th.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, January 31, 2022

We start the week off with the Moon moving into Aquarius during the early morning hours. You will feel more social and want to connect with your friends and network. It’s an excellent day to share ideas with those who share like-minded beliefs.  However, the Moon will square Uranus, and unexpected events or circumstances may throw you off your game.

Tuesday, February 1, 2022

Happy Lunar New Year! Besides the New Moon, which occurs early on Tuesday, the Moon will conjoin Saturn. You may need to wrestle with feelings of loneliness and self-doubt. Push away negative thoughts as they surface. After the Moon conjoins Saturn, it will go void of course for almost 24 hours. Avoid starting anything new and avoid making firm agreements.

Wednesday, February 2, 2022

The Moon moves into emotional Pisces, and you will find that your receptivity to others will be kicked into high gear. The Moon makes positive aspects to Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, and Venus, which should bring a positive tone throughout the day.  It’s also an excellent time to connect spiritually, meditate, or enjoy the arts. Netflix and chill, anyone?

Thursday, February 3, 2022

On Thursday, Mercury’s retrograde cycle ends in Capricorn. You can now be free to make decisions, pursue objectives, and enact any plans you put off until the retrograde was over. Communications will improve, and you can begin to clear up any snafus that may have occurred over the last 3 weeks.  Do your best to make amends and clean up your side of the street.

Friday, February 4, 2022

Today, we have two contradictory aspects, as Mars sextiles Jupiter and the Sun conjoins Saturn. Mars-Jupiter wants to get up and go, while Sun conjunct Saturn wants to slow things down. So, for some, this could be a frustrating day. The key to working with both aspects together is to proceed with whatever you want to do, but ensure you have all the facts and details in order.

Saturday, February 5, 2022

The Moon moves through energetic Aries and squares Venus, before moving onto to sextile Saturn and the Sun. This should be a positive day, in which you should use the energy boost of the sign of Aries to get results. Use today to work on your to do list and complete projects that have lingered. Later in the evening, it’s a great time to socialize and connect with others.

Sunday, February 6, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Aries and forms difficult aspects to Mercury and Pluto. You may experience some tension with others, especially if problems have been brewing beneath the surface for some time. Try to be as proactive as possible, but stand your ground.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of January 24, 2022 – January 30, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of January 24, 2022 through January 30, 2022 features two major aspects (Mercury conjunct Pluto, Sun square Uranus), two sign changes (Mars in Capricorn, Mercury Rx in Capricorn) and Venus turns direct.

It’s going to be a busy week. So, without further ado…

Cosmic Overview

This week we have two sign changes – Mars moves out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn, and Mercury has unfinished business as he retrogrades back into the sign of the sea goat. So, there is a lot of Capricorn energy we will still be working through, despite the Sun having moved into Aquarius.

Capricorn is an earth sign. It likes things to be solid, secure, and stable, and is concerned with tangible reality. So, any planet that moves through the sign of the goat will express itself in Capricornian ways.

Mars is an action planet. He goes out into the world and gets you what you want, and is even willing to fight for it. However, rather than approaching things impulsively, Mars is strategic and has tenacity in earthy Capricorn. In Capricorn, Mars is concerned with position and status and is willing to work nonstop to achieve what he desires. While Mas is in the sign of the sea-goat, you can take advantage of Capricornian discipline and focus on projects that matter, helping push you to the next level. This is where you need to strategize your long game and look towards your big picture objectives.

Now, on to Mercury.

Mercury reversed course on January 14, 2022 in the sign of Aquarius. However, this week he will retrograde back into Capricorn. Whereas Aquarius is concerned with making your life better, Mercury moving back into Capricorn ensures you have all the facts straight. Mercury’s reflective mode in Capricorn will help Mars create better strategies that will help you once Mercury turns direct. Use this period to look at your life, stick to the facts, and then develop a plan of action (Mercury being copresent with Mars) to get the results you ultimately desire.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, January 24, 2022

We start the week off with Mars moving into Capricorn.  If you have projects to complete that need focus and tenacity, the warrior god will help you get it accomplished. Otherwise, this is an excellent cycle (Mars remains in Capricorn until March 6th) to focus on long-term objects and plans.  Focus on the big picture!

Tuesday, January 25, 2022

Besides Mercury retrograding back into Capricorn, the Moon moves through turbulent Scorpio and opposes Uranus. You may feel anxious throughout the day, especially if you feel that outside forces are obstructing your progress. Try to remain as proactive as possible, and use your wise mind rather than react emotionally.

Wednesday, January 26, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Scorpio and makes beneficial aspects to Neptune, Pluto, and Mercury Rx. Your creative juices will flow steadily, so it’s the perfect day to work on projects that inspire and feed your soul. Later in the day, you will have the opportunity to clear up any communication snafus that occurred earlier in the week.

Thursday, January 27, 2022

Today, the Moon enters fiery Sagittarius. It’s an excellent day to do things that you enjoy and bring out your adventurous spirit. The Moon aspects beneficial Jupiter, which should give you a dose of optimism, and your mood should be positive. However, try not to be excessive, because Jupiter can get out of control if left unchecked.

Friday, January 28, 2022

Mercury conjoins Pluto in Capricorn during the early morning hours. Since Mercury is retched out, this is an auspicious day to look within for answers, rather than finding solutions to your problems in the world. You may want to take some time to do journaling work or find creative ways to express yourself. Avoid being harsh with yourself over the past mistakes or problems, because it’s not helpful and it’s disempowering.

Saturday, January 29, 2022

Great news! After 40 long days and nights, Venus turns direct in Capricorn. If you’ve experienced relationship issues over the past month and a half, matters will begin to improve.  However, take some time to review your recent relationship experiences and use them as a learning experience. Also, if you’ve held off on making investments or major purchases, continue to refrain until after Mercury turns direct next week.

Sunday, January 30, 2022

We close the week with the Sun forming a tense square to Uranus in Taurus. Sun square Uranus is extremely disruptive, and sudden changes may leave you feeling frustrated or anxious. Be careful when interacting with others, because hard Sun-Uranus aspects can be discordant and provoke arguments. Expect the unexpected!

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of January 17, 2022 through January 23, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of January 17, 2022 through January 23, 2022 features a Full Moon in Cancer, Uranus stationing direct in Taurus, a Sun-Mercury conjunction, and the end of Capricorn as we usher in Aquarius season.

There is not much planetary action this week, so let’s dive in.

Cosmic Overview

The Full Moon occurs in Cancer this week at 6:48 PM EST/3:48 PM PST. This Full Moon is potent because it opposes Pluto in Capricorn. The Full Moon opposing Pluto can bring up toxic familial drama or emotional situations where you have lost your power to deal with them internally or externally. Full Moons are emotionally intense, but this one is off the chain. So, get prepared!

Astro Magic Pro Tip:

Cancer Full Moons are an auspicious time to work through family of origin issues or to let go of emotional pain and hurts. It’s also an excellent time for healing work and ridding yourself of health issues. So, if you need to let go of something emotional, this is the Full Moon to get it done, once and for all.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, January 17, 2022

The Moon moves through emotional Cancer and opposes Pluto in Capricorn. The Moon is our need for security, and opposed to Pluto, we feel anything but secure. Since an opposition is an aspect that propels us to deal with things, this could lead to tense encounters and power plays. Try to work towards compromises, rather than worsen matters.

Tuesday, January 18, 2022

The Moon moves through tenaciously stubborn Leo and opposes Mercury Rx and squares Uranus. Communication issues with others may be a factor throughout the day. Try to learn about others’ differences rather than simply react to them. This evening, expect the unexpected as the Moon squares Uranus.

Wednesday, January 19, 2022

Wednesday is the first day of Aquarius season, and it’s time to focus on what we can do to make our lives better. The sign of Aquarius helps us think outside the box and develop strategies that will help improve the quality of our lives. Also, over the next month, you may experience a bit of cabin fever and get the urge to socialize with friends and associates.,

Thursday, January 20, 2022

The Moon moves through dutiful Virgo and aspects Jupiter. Therefore, the tone for the day should be optimistic. Focus on tying up loose ends and clearing tasks off your to-do list. Since Mercury, the ruler of Virgo is retrograde, you may receive information that you can use to your advantage once Mercury turns direct in February.

Friday, January 21, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Virgo and trines Venus retrograde and Uranus in Taurus, forming a lucky grand trine. It’s a great day to look at your problem areas and approach them differently. If you need to make changes in your life, this grand trine can help you get optimal results.

Saturday, January 22, 2022

The Moon spends its last day in productive Virgo, before moving into Libra later this afternoon. It’s the perfect day to get things done, so focus on important matters. Also, if you are in a relationship, a little love and romance may fill up your evening hours.

Sunday, January 23, 2022

The Sun conjoins Mercury Rx in Aquarius. This conjunction is the halfway point of the Mercury retrograde cycle. It’s an auspicious day for self-reflection and inner examination. Insights you receive today may have long-term results.

See you next week!

The Astrology Forecast for the Week of January 10, 2022 – January 16, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of January 10, 2022 through January 16, 2022 features three major aspects (Sun trine Neptune, Mars square Neptune, and the Sun conjoined to Pluto) and Mercury turns retrograde in Aquarius.

So, with all the Neptunian energy and with the inclusion of Mercury retrograde, make sure you verify everything before making decisions, because the truth may be elusive and hard to grasp.

Let’s dive into the forecast!

Cosmic Overview:

This week, Mercury joins the love goddess (Venus) by turning retrograde in Aquarius on Friday morning. Mercury will remain retrograde until February 3, 2022.

At its root, the sign of Aquarius is about how we can improve our lives.  Aquarius is about progress and pushing society forward, rather than staying stuck in the present or being bound to the past. Mercury moving through Aquarius augurs a time when we should focus on areas where we can improve our lives or focus on what needs to be fixed or repaired. Mercury turning retrograde in Aquarius helps us look at the decisions and choices we have made over the past three months that may be preventing our growth. This gives us the chance to course correct if necessary.  The silver lining is that with Mercury being retrograde, we can see the areas that need to be fixed easier.

Mercury retrogrades before it can complete its conjunction to Saturn, but it will remain within orb for the next week. Mercury conjoined to Saturn is frustrating and can lead to negative mindsets. It may be difficult to communicate and express yourself to others. So, try to push away negative thoughts as they surface, and you may need to practice some self-care to manage your emotions.

Otherwise, traditional Mercury retrograde warnings are applicable.  Make sure you back up electronic devices, finalize plans, and sign documents before the retrograde begins. Here is a checklist to help you during the retrograde cycle.

Mercury Rx Dirty Dozen! Tips and Tricks to Wrangling the Trickster God

Let’s begin with the recommendations (Notice I didn’t use the lists of should or should not?  Mainly because we should never should on ourselves).

  1. Make sure you go over anything contractual thoroughly.  Make sure all the i’s are dotted, and all the t’s are crossed. 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.
  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 an excellent time to scour places (online and offline) for great deals!

Now, that is some list.  But, if you want to avoid the most annoying tricks Mercury has up his sleeve, it is wise to pay close attention and organize (Mercury loves that word) accordingly.

Daily Breakdown:

Monday, January 10, 2022

We start the week off with the Sun forming a lovely sextile to Neptune in Pisces. You will find that you are more receptive to the needs of others, and willing to help the unfortunate when possible.  Also, friends may lean on you for emotional support.  However, you may need to wear a garlic necklace to repel emotional vampires.

Tuesday, January 11, 2022

Mars forms a difficult square to Neptune. Your energy levels will be low, which may dampen your spirits and attempt to put out your flame. For many, Mars square Neptune provokes feelings of doubt, and you may feel ineffective dealing with your daily challenges. Avoid any form of underhanded or deceptive behavior.  Regardless of your motives, it will lead to blow back and consequences.

Wednesday, January 12, 2022

After the tricky and self-defeating energies on Tuesday, Wednesday brings us the Moon moving through earthy Taurus – the sign of her exaltation. It’s an excellent day to do self-care and tend to your personal needs. You may want to spend some time relaxing or engaging in pleasurable activities. Treat yourself to something you enjoy.

Thursday, January 13, 2022

The Moon spends its first full day in mercurial Gemini and forms a lovely trine to the trickster god. Since Mercury turns retrograde tomorrow, make sure you back up your computer and electronic devices. Also, sign documents and have any conversation that needs to be handled before it’s less advantageous to do so. This evening is an excellent time to socialize and spend time with family and friends.

Friday, January 14, 2022

As if Mercury Rx (yes, that starts today) is not enough befuddlement for the day, the Moon in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces. The Moon square Neptune is extremely confusing, and you need to check and verify everything before believing it as the truth. Be careful of your intuitive hunches, because they may be influenced by fears and paranoias rather than spirit.

Saturday, January 15, 2022

The Moon moves into Cancer during the morning hours and forms a trine to lucky Jupiter. It should be a positive day that is relaxing, and fun filled. So, kick back and do things you enjoy, and take a break from your usual routine. Since the Moon is in Cancer, it’s also an auspicious day to do some redecorating or do something to beautify your home.

Sunday, January 16, 2022

We close the week with the Sun conjoining transformative Pluto in Capricorn. Sometimes, to stand in your power, you have to dig deep. This can bring up uncomfortable feelings or reveal inner truths that may be unsettling and difficult to face. However, slaying your inner demons can help you level up.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast For the week of January 3, 2022 – January 9, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of January 3, 2022 through January 9, 2022 features only two (yes, you read that right) astrological aspects – Venus Rx sextile Neptune and the Sun conjunct Venus Rx.

So, it’s going to be a light week in the cosmos, and since Venus is the only planet making aspects, let’s dive into the daily breakdown.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, January 3, 2022

It’s not surprising that we return from the holiday season, and the Moon is making its monthly trip through Capricorn. It’s an excellent day to hit the ground running and focus on your objectives by getting things done.  Since we are still in the sign of the New Moon, you still have time to set your intentions for the New Year before the Moon moves into Aquarius on Monday afternoon.

Tuesday, January 4, 2022

The Moon moves through Aquarius and conjoins Saturn and squares Uranus.  Unexpected situations may leave you rattled and throw a monkey wrench into your day. This could ultimately affect your mood and lead to periods of self-doubt. Push past negative thoughts and stay focused on your game plan.

Wednesday, January 5, 2022

On Wednesday, we have our first Venusian aspect of the week, as Venus Rx sextiles Neptune in Pisces. Venus sextile Neptune is an easy aspect, especially if you are looking for a little romance in your relationships. It’s an excellent day to focus on your partners needs and use this helpful energy to connect on a deeper level. If you’ve been going through relationship frustrations because of the retrograde, this is an auspicious time to work through your issues, because Neptune will help minimize your (and your partners) ego.

Thursday, January 6, 2022

The Moon moves through Pisces and forms lovely sextiles to Uranus and the Sun. It’s an excellent day to step away from the daily grind and do something fun and exciting with your tribe. In fact, unexpected opportunities may come out of your social and professional connections. Also, watch out for new people on the scene, they may inspire and invigorate you.

Friday, January 7, 2022

The Moon continues its trek through Pisces and conjoins Neptune. Communication with others will be challenging, because it will be hard to stay focused on mundane matters. Focus on issues that matter, and leave the heavy lifting for another day. Moreover, you will be sensitive to the moods of others. So, it may be best to stay away from negative people, or they may impact your mood or try to suck out your soul.

Saturday, January 8, 2022

The Sun conjoins Venus Rx in Capricorn. The Sun and Venus will bring out your social urges, and if you are in a relationship, it’s a great day to spend time with your partner. However, since the love goddess (Venus) is retrograde, it’s the perfect time to focus on the areas of your relationship that need improvement. If you need to have a difficult conversation, now is the time, because it will be easier to reach a mutually beneficial agreement.

Sunday, January 9, 2022

We close the week with the Moon moving through energetic Aries. It’s a perfect day to get things done, especially projects that need extra gumption. Later in the day, the Moon applies to a square to Pluto in Capricorn. Avoid people who are power hungry or like to control everything.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of December 20, 2021 – December 26, 2021

Yule log chocolate cake with chocolate frosting for Christmas

The astrology forecast for the week of December 20, 2021 thru December 26, 2021 features four major aspects (Mercury trine Uranus, Saturn square Uranus, Venus Rx conjunct Pluto, and Mercury sextile Neptune) and the beginning of Capricorn season.

Since a lot is going on, let’s get on with the show.

Cosmic Overview

The cosmic overview’s focus is something we have covered for the past year – Saturn square Uranus.

This week we have the final showdown between Saturn and Uranus. But keep in mind that planetary aspects have orbs, and Saturn square Uranus will continue to be active throughout 2022. However, they will never reach an exact aspect again until 2032, when they will conjoin in late Gemini.

In astrology, Saturn symbolizes the structures in our lives, whether that be the government, our careers, or our station in life. Saturn seeks stability, so he likes to hold onto things and doesn’t like change. On the other hand, Uranus likes progress, is rebellious, and likes to shake up the system. He finds the ‘establishment’ boring and, at its worst, corrupt. Since this aspect is a square, there is enormous tension between these two planets.  If you lean towards the Saturn side of the square, change can be seen as suspect, disruptive, and chaotic. If you lean towards Uranus, you will see structure as limiting, restrictive, and only concerned with the selfish need to hold onto power and authority.

So, this gives you a whiff of the reason why the political landscape is currently so toxic!

Working with this aspect is not easy. It’s tough work, and it requires a lot of reflection and honesty. So naturally, based on our personal charts, we will gravitate to one side of the aspect or the other.  However, the way to work with Saturn square Uranus proactively is to look at the areas of your life that need change and devise a plan to enact those changes in a way that you feel comfortable. A quick way to look at what needs to change is to look at the houses Saturn and Uranus are transiting in your chart. Here is a cheat sheet that will help you with the keywords. 

Just remember, the more you work with the planets, the easier they are to manage. It’s when you deny giving them attention and pretend they do not exist; they become troublesome.

Now, on with the forecast…

Daily Breakdown

Monday, December 20, 2021

We start the week with a beneficial trine between Mercury in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. It’s an excellent day to think outside the box and develop new solutions to old problems.  You will find your intuition increased, which will help you make decisions. New ideas will be tantalizing and may lead you down a new path of discovery.

Tuesday, December 21, 2021

Happy Yule! On Tuesday, we leave Sagittarius behind and settle into the season of the sea-goat. Capricorn is a cardinal sign that likes to make things happen. So, it’s not surprising that we make New Year’s resolutions or start new things during Capricorn season. To put it more simply, Capricorn season is about taking care of business (personal and professional), and to achieve a prosperous New Year, you must plant the seeds.  Just make sure what you plant will be fruitful.

Wednesday, December 22, 2021

The Moon spends its first full day in fiery Leo. During the morning hours, the Moon trines Mars, and if used correctly, this will give you a much-needed energy boost. However, expect frustrations and unexpected surprises during the afternoon as the Moon activates the upcoming square between Saturn and Uranus. Be proactive, not reactive.

Thursday, December 23, 2021

The Moon continues its trek through Leo, and you may need a ‘do you’ day before the holiday madness begins.  So, have a bit of fun and enjoy yourself. Also, a bit of pampering and self-care never hurt anyone.

Friday, December 24, 2021

Besides Saturn squaring Uranus (see above), the Moon moves into diligent Virgo during the early morning hours.  The Moon forms a lovely trine to the Sun in Capricorn, which is a harmonious aspect for getting things done.  However, get all your holiday shopping and chores done as early as possible, because this evening the Moon squares discordant Mars.

Saturday, December 25, 2021

Merry Christmas to all that celebrate!

I feel like the Grinch that stole Christmas, because the cosmic energy is problematic and tense. Today, Venus retrograde conjoins Pluto in Capricorn. Relationships that are strained may experience the brunt of this aspect, because Venus conjunct Pluto signifies the need for change in relationships. Your emotions may be intense, and you may need to manage them cautiously. Moreover, ignoring relationship problems out of fear of change could lead to further complications. Avoid manipulation tactics even if you feel justified.

Sunday, December 26, 2021

We close the week with a harmonious sextile between Mercury in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces.  After an intense holiday, you may need a break to get in touch with your personal thoughts and feelings, and Mercury sextile Neptune can provide deep insight and understanding. If need be, go to your quiet place and listen to your gut; it will not misguide you.

See you next week!
