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.

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 – November 26, 2018 – December 2, 2018

So, for the past few weeks, we have had minimal amounts of astrological aspects to deal with, but this week makes up for it with six major aspects and two sign changes.

What a way to start the holiday season, right?

The major player this week is Mercury who continues to move backward in Sagittarius. Retrograde planets force us to analyze (re-analyze) what has worked for us in the past, and to decide what doesn’t.  Mercury in Sagittarius is amplified because Sagittarius is one of the two signs that help us analyze our ideas and beliefs about life.  As the week progresses, take note of the events that occur because they will be guideposts to help you decide what is best for your future.  Mercury in Sagittarius allows you to have a solid plan of action as you prepare for the New Year.

Remember, we do not make changes while Mercury is retrograde, we make them when Mercury goes direct and out of shadow, which is on Christmas Day (December 25th).

Now, on with the forecast…

Monday, November 26, 2018

The week starts off with a pair of aspects that occur during the early morning hours – Sun conjunct Jupiter and Mercury retrograde square Mars.

Ordinarily, the Sun conjunct Jupiter is one of the most positive days of the year.  This aspect expands how you view your life and gives you something to look forward to, but with Mercury and Mars in the mix, I am concerned.

Mercury square Mars tends to get involved in arguments and fights, and the more you need to stand up for your beliefs, the more forceful you will become.  You may feel challenged by others, which may make you irritable.  So, you could easily fly off the handle if someone annoys you too much, and you could easily react by taking them to task. It’s best not to take anything personal over the next few days. Additionally, Mercury square Mars is susceptible to accidents, so watch what you are doing carefully.

Tuesday, November 27, 2018

Tuesday brings us a whopping three aspects – Sun conjunct Mercury retrograde, Mars sextile Saturn, and Mercury retrograde conjunct Jupiter.

The hostile energy from Monday will continue to leak into Tuesday, so it might be best to avoid people as much as possible and focus on the positive energy that is available. First off, if you have projects that require an extra bit of effort, today would be a great day to tackle them.  Any effort you put into anything you do will have a positive impact on your future.  Otherwise, spend the bulk of your day looking at your big picture objectives because Mercury retrogrades power of reflection will uncover details you may have missed, which will help you feel better about your personal trajectory. On a good note, overall, Tuesday should be a good day.

Wednesday, November 28, 2018

The Moon moves through regal Leo on Wednesday but makes no aspects until the early morning on Thursday, which is a lovely sextile to Venus.  It’s a good day to pamper yourself and do something enjoyable. Later this evening, you may want to have a date night with your significant other or children. If you are single, put your feet up and relax a little; after all, you deserve it.

Thursday, November 29, 2018

Thursday is another lunar day, but the Moon will move out of Leo and into practical Virgo. You may find it difficult to stay focused on your activities with the Moon-forming difficult aspects to Mercury and Jupiter through mid-afternoon.  Mercury will distract you and Jupiter would rather do something fun, so tasks and responsibilities may be difficult to manage.  Thursday evening would be good for a night in because the lunar aspects continue to be challenging.

Friday, November 30, 2018

Friday brings us one of the most difficult days of the year for relationships with Venus in opposition to Uranus.

Venus-Uranus aspects are notorious for breakups.  If your relationship is on rocky ground, then you may want to stay alert.  You see, this aspect brings up your personal (or your partners) ambivalence and even the best of relationships get stale from time to time, but the default mode of this aspect is to focus on the behaviors of your partner and how they are not fulfilling your needs, rather than admit your own boredom.  So, unresolved tensions easily rise to the surface that may cause disappointments, and for many, the need to be free of your relationship.

The key to working with Venus oppose Uranus constructively is to bring new elements into your relationship so it is exciting again.  Do something to break up the monotony of day-to-day living.  A little fun and enjoyment is often the most powerful love potion for struggling relationships.

The Weekend:

This weekend both Mercury and Venus move into Scorpio.  These sign changes present us with an opportunity to peak under the veil of your life and see things for how they are rather than the false constructs you create in your mind.  Otherwise, the weekend should go rather smoothly with the Moon moving through Libra, and it is a great time to get holiday shopping out of the way.

See you next week…
