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

So, we have a bucket load of astrological energy that occurs this week.  Change is on the horizon and a new cycle begins that will influence our lives over the next 7 years when Uranus leaves fiery Aries and enters earthy Taurus.  Uranus is a tricky planet because it’s not personal, but collective.  This means that Uranus symbolizes urges that are greater than one person and reflects the natural progression of human evolution, and therefore, has broad consequences.  As Uranus enters earthy Taurus, security finances, and inner resources will be highlighted and since Uranus tends to shake things up, we can expect these sensitive areas of life to dramatically be affected.

When dealing with the outer planets (Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and Eris), our best guide is history because planetary themes tend to repeat.  The last time Uranus moved into Taurus was in 1934 and continued through the beginning of World War 2.  Notice this began after the market crash of 1929 and during the Great Depression that occurred through the 1930s.  These financial problems and uncertainties and damage they caused, especially to Germany, led to nationalism, protectionism, and ultimately World War 2 when Germany invaded Poland.

As I am writing this post, the themes of nationalism and protectionism in the United States and parts of Europe are repeating.  Threats of tariffs and economic insecurity are leading to fears of potential economic collapse in the US and around the world.   Sanctions against countries and backroom deals are reminiscent of Article 231 of the Treaty of Versailles, which blamed World War 1 entirely on Germany and the financial reparations placed a heavy burden on the German people, which led to the rise of the NAZI party.

Now, this doesn’t mean that we are on the verge of a world war, and a war in the 21st century may not look like anything that occurred in the past, but the themes are repeating, and we can expect changes in national finances and national resources.  We will question, on the collective level, what security means and whether inner resources and values ultimately mean more than physical ones.

We are in for a wild ride, but every astrological aspect has two faces – negative and positive. We can expect changes in currency, improved banking technologies, and scientific discoveries that will improve the health of the human body, which is perhaps our most valuable resource.

These are two other astrological events this week – Mercury goes retrograde and the New Moon occurs in watery Pisces.  First up is Mercury retrograde, Mercury retrograde reflects a period of reflection and introspection that lasts for three weeks.  During the retrograde, we can expect difficulties with communication, electronic devices will go awry, and travel plans may fall apart, try to prepare for these mishaps beforehand.  Secondly, the New Moon occurs on Wednesday in Pisces.  This is a great New Moon to do intention or magical work to bring compassion, joy, and enhanced spiritual connection into your life.

Now, on with the forecast…

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.

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….
