Astrology Forecast for the Week of November 29,2021 – December 5, 2021

Solar Eclipse “Elements of this image furnished by NASA “

After a week of a cosmic slowdown, the heavenly machine churns up again.  This week have four major aspects (Mars trine Neptune, Mercury sextile Saturn, Venus sextile Neptune, and Sun sextile Saturn), and a solar eclipse in Sagittarius.

Cosmic Overview:

First, all the major aspects this week are relatively light. The only thing that is peculiar is that they involve two planets that really don’t like each other – Saturn and Neptune.  Saturn is interested in the physical world, which is what you can observe, do, and accomplish. He requires effort and determination.  Neptune is interested in the ‘other world’, meaning everything beyond the physical. In Neptune’s world, there is no concept of time, reality, or rules; everything is fluid.  So, there will be a tug of war between the need to take care of duties and responsibilities, and the need to escape worldly burdens. It’s going to be necessary to navigate both worlds. My suggestion is to take care of what has to be done and spend plenty of time engaging in activities that feed your soul.

Secondly, we have a solar eclipse in Sagittarius early Saturday morning.  This eclipse is the conclusion of the eclipse series that began in 2020. Sagittarius is the sign that represents big picture perspectives, philosophy, and beliefs.  However, we have a curious happening in the cosmos, because the eclipse is square the centaur Nessus.

In mythology, Nessus is a member of the rowdy Centaur clan.  He was the ferryman at the Euenos river. Hercules arrives at the river and pays for his wife Deinara to ride to the other side. Upon reaching her destination, Nessus attempts to rape Deinara, and Hercules shoots him with an arrow tainted by the deadly Hydra’s poisonous blood.  As he is dying, Nessus gives a vial of his blood to Deinara and tells her that it will keep Hercules faithful.

Of course, since this is a myth, you know what will happen. After a while, Deinara fears Hercules is being unfaithful, so she pours Nessus’ poisoned blood on her husband’s tunic. Hercules wears the tunic and dies. After his death, Zeus brings Hercules to Mount Olympus where he is honored for his heroic activities.

Since Sagittarius is about higher learning, knowledge, and philosophy (not to mention its image of the Centaur), I felt that including Nessus was necessary. In the horoscope, Nessus reflects poisoning, and since he is currently moving through Pisces, it’s collective poisoning that we are concerned with. Over the last few years, we have noticed how dangerous misinformation is and what it can do to the global community. If you are on a social media platform or visit news sites, you are exposed to it on the daily. In many ways, we are ‘poisoned’ by collective movements, many of people involved are true believers in what they are posting, but propaganda can be deadly and can poison ordinary (and even some unordinary) people and their outlook on life.  I am hopeful that with this aspect being a separating square, much of this will begin to fade away, because we are encouraged to leave ‘group think’ (which can be equally poisonous) behind and focus on our big picture objectives. We need to take our ‘personal beliefs’ and take charge of our ‘personal worlds’, and start living our best lives, and leave the noise to others who wish to participate. Instead of being poisoned by the beliefs or statements of others, we need to be the cure. 

Enjoy your new beginning!

Now, on with the forecast…

Daily Breakdown

Monday, November 29, 2021

We start the week with a harmonious aspect between Mars and Neptune. Mars trine Neptune is the spiritual warrior.  He fights in the name of compassion, empathy, and without judgment. It’s an excellent day to focus on what you can do to help those less fortunate than you.  Since we are in the holiday season of good will towards your fellow man, being a force for good will help boost the morale of others and feed your spirit and soul.

Tuesday, November 30, 2021

There’s a lot of activity today with three major aspects – Mercury sextile Saturn, Venus sextile Neptune, and the Sun sextile Saturn.

Overall, Tuesday will be an interesting day, because Venus sextile Neptune would rather relax, smell the roses, and connect with loved ones, but duty calls.

During the early morning hours, Mercury sextiles Saturn in Aquarius. It’s an excellent day to work on tasks that need completion and get them off your to do list. Mercury sextile Saturn is very serious and tends to be steadfast and focused. So, any tasks that require precision and exactitude are recommended.

Later in the day, the Sun sextiles Saturn. The Sun sextile Saturn is an amazing aspect for career and professional advancement. Use this aspect to achieve the favor of supervisors and management, because you will be rewarded for a job well done.

Finally, this evening honor Venus sextile Neptune.  Spend some time doing something you enjoy.  If you are in a relationship, this is an auspicious day to take care of your partners needs. Otherwise, spiritual activities, the arts, and meditation are recommended.

Wednesday, December 1, 2021

The Moon moves into Scorpio and brings with it an intense undertone to the day. Your ordinary feelings may be felt more intensely, so stay on guard. This evening, the Moon forms a tough square to Saturn.  You may be plagued with insecurities and self-doubt.  Push away negative thoughts as they surface.

Thursday, December 2, 2021

The Moon continues to move through Scorpio, but makes easier aspects than yesterday. Throughout most of the day, the Moon trines Neptune and sextiles Venus. It’s a perfect day to do some self-care, relaxation, and pampering. A deep tissue massage or a mani and pedi would be an excellent way to work with this energy.

Friday, December 3, 2021

The Moon moves through joyful and spirited Sagittarius during the morning hours as she prepares to go into eclipse mode on Saturday.  Sagittarius is a fun-loving sign, and it’s an excellent day to socialize and spend time with your friends and members of your tribe. Tonight is the perfect time to let your hair down and spend a night out on the town.

Saturday, December 4, 2021

We have our final eclipse of eclipse season with the New Moon (solar eclipse) in Sagittarius. The sign of Sagittarius is about the potentials and possibilities of a better future. Have you been pursuing your dreams, or have your ideals been overly influenced by others, and therefore, have you diminished your light?  Have you not pursued your goals because of fear – either of failure or rejection? Now it’s time to break free and start living life on your terms. But be careful, solar eclipses are potent, and you should proceed slowly and methodically.  The good news is that the result is living your best life!

Sunday, December 5, 2021

We end the week with the Moon moving into earthy Capricorn. It’s an excellent day to get out your checklist of duties and responsibilities and get it done.  The Moon in Capricorn is the perfect Moon for holiday shopping, because it helps you restrict and avoid excessiveness.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of November 22, 2021 – November 28, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of November 22, 2021 through November 28, 2021 features only two astrological events – Mercury moves into Sagittarius, and the Sun joins Mercury at the end of the week.  So, after two turbulent forecasts, we get a bit of relief.

Cosmic Overview

We are now fully in Sagittarius season, and after the fireworks of Scorpio season, the energy of the centaur archer is welcomed. The sign of Sagittarius is about potential, possibilities, and faith in a better life.  It’s not a sudden Christmas miracle that fills people with good tidings, generosity, and wonderment. It’s just the season – Sagittarius, that is.

This Sagittarius season features Jupiter making his last stand in Aquarius before he slips out of the dark Lord Saturn’s grasp. Jupiter is the planet of expansion, luck, and optimism, and it is easy to see that his blessings have been curtailed over the past two years while dancing with Saturn in Capricorn and Aquarius.  However, despite Jupiter’s position, Sagittarius season encourages us to perceive life’s potentials, and it’s an excellent time to create your goals and resolutions for 2022.  That way you are ready to go – ON DAY ONE!

Now, on with the forecast…

Monday, November 22, 2021

We start the week off with the Moon moving through emotional Cancer. You may find yourself in the feels throughout the day. Simply, make sure you do not let your emotions control you.  Instead, feel and acknowledge them, and find practical ways to deal with them when they surface. You may need to nurture yourself, get plenty of rest, hydrate, and do some self-care.

Tuesday, November 23, 2021

The Moon continues its trek through the sign of the crab, and she forms a lovely trine to Mars during the morning hours.  It’s an excellent time to get things done and work on things that need a little effort.  Later in the afternoon, the Moon trines spiritual Neptune, which is wonderful for meditation and inner reflection.  This evening would be the perfect time to Netflix and chill.

Wednesday, November 24, 2021

After lurking in the darkness for the past few weeks, Mercury moves out of Scorpio and basks in the light of Sagittarius.  Mercury in Sagittarius is not concerned with facts and details, as they are only stepping stones for possibilities.  Mercury in Sagittarius is extremely intuitive and able to anticipate trends and turn them into opportunities.  While Mercury is in Sagittarius, it’s time to look at the possible and create a strategy to achieve results. Focus on the big picture and leave the past behind.

Thursday, November 25, 2021

Happy Thanksgiving! The Moon moves through fiery Leo and makes some troubling aspects to Saturn, Uranus, and Mars.  Tensions may be high throughout the day, especially if you are overly invested in your point of view. It’s best to avoid people that may antagonize you, and stay away from discussing hot button issues.

Friday, November 26, 2021

The Moon continues to move through Leo most of the day.  Your spirits should be high, and your attitude should be optimistic.  However, since the Moon opposes expansive Jupiter in Aquarius, be careful of ‘Black Friday’ spending because you could easily overextend yourself.

Saturday, November 27, 2021

The Moon moves through Virgo throughout the day on Saturday. It’s an auspicious day to take care of tasks and responsibilities that may have piled up over the last week.  The Moon forms a lovely trine to Uranus this evening, so do something spontaneous and carefree.

Sunday, November 28, 2021

We close the week out with a conjunction between the Sun and Mercury in Sagittarius.  It’s a perfect day to hang out with your tribe, engage in enthusiastic conversation, and socialize with others.  Since Mercury rules commerce, it’s also fantastic for business activities, transactions, and negotiations.  Further, you may receive profound insight into your current needs, which can help you craft your future.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the week of November 15, 2021 – November 21, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of November 15, 2021 – November 21, 2021 features 7 planetary aspects (Sun square Jupiter, Sun sextile Pluto, Mars oppose Uranus, Mercury trine Neptune, Mercury square Jupiter, and Mercury sextile Pluto), the Sun moving out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius, and a lunar eclipse in Taurus.

Astrologically, this is a hectic week with one of the most volatile aspects of the year.  So, let’s dig right in…

Cosmic Overview

The prime newsmaker this week is a lunar eclipse that occurs on Friday, November 19, 2021 at 28 Taurus.  This lunar eclipse is sandwiched between the fixed stars Caput Algol (off with your head) and Alcyone (something to cry about), so it is intense, especially as the eclipse is ruled by Venus in Capricorn. Eclipse energy is highly potent.  If you know your chart, look at the house with Taurus on the cusp, and this will reveal the areas of life that will be influenced. 

Here is a cheat sheet to help you with topics.

The sign of Taurus has to do with resources, money, and values. These are subjects are often activated with an eclipse in the sign of the bull.  Since astrology is an instructive language, this eclipse tells us that we need to look at how we manage our financial matters, how we obtain goods, and what is important to us.  I have long believed that our checkbooks reveal where our true values lie, because it is a ledger of what we purchase and where we spend our funds.

Since this eclipse is conjoined two negative fixed stars, we can expect financial woes to be headline news and potentially further problems with the supply chain. We can also expect political infighting related to money to become increasingly tense. 

So, word to the wise – get your shopping done early this holiday season.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, November 15, 2021

We start the week off with the Sun forming a square to Jupiter in Aquarius. Now, despite the aspect Jupiter attempts to expand any planet he contacts, which is a good thing.  Sun-Jupiter lets you go for the gusto and achieve whatever you desire, as long as you stay focused and don’t get too carried away.  However, you need to remember that the nature of Sun square Jupiter is to take things to extremes, and this can potentially lead to conflicts and burnout.  With Sun square Jupiter, it’s always best to be mindful of other people’s perspectives and try to avoid letting your ego run the show.  Self-importance is a color that’s never looked good on anyone.

Tuesday, November 16, 2021

The solar energy from yesterday continues today as the Sun sextiles Pluto. Sun sextile Pluto is an aspect of reform.  It’s an excellent day to make changes in your life, especially in areas that have been challenging. So, if you need to repair something broken in your life, now is the time to do it. You may also find that you are taking life more seriously, and this will help you make changes that ultimately improve your situation and make your life more manageable. Although Pluto likes to tear down things that are not working, and this can be troubling and painful, he always replaces them with things that are more viable and sustainable in the future.

Wednesday, November 17, 2021

Last week, we had the tumultuous buildup of Mercury-Mars-Saturn, and Mercury late last week transferred that frustration and tension to Uranus in Taurus.  In astrologese, this is called ‘translation of light’.  Since Mercury rules communication and thoughts, he has given Uranus plenty of time to brew, and may have ignited an urge to break free of any constraints that you have in your life. Today, explosive Mars joins the show as he opposes Uranus. 

Mars oppose Uranus is a volatile aspect, and you may need to control your temper and pay close attention to your reactions.  If you feel restricted or confined in any way, there may be a need to break free.  However, if you decide to make changes, you may experience push back from those around you.  Unhealthy and toxic situations may come to a head while this aspect is active. Stay on guard!

Thursday, November 18, 2021

After the intensity of Mars oppose Uranus, today may be a sigh of relief as Mercury trines Neptune in Pisces. You may feel the need to pull away from life’s difficulties and focus on doing things to maintain your soul. Self-care, meditation, and connecting with your inner self is recommended. You may even find that you are empathetic to other people, even if you disagree with them. Another way to work with Mercury trine Neptune is through creative projects. You will find your imagination is more active than normal, while this aspect is active.

Friday, November 19, 2021

Besides the potent lunar eclipse that occurs today, Venus forms a lovely trine to Uranus. 

Venus trine Uranus brings a bit of excitement, especially if your days have been stale and flat.  It’s an excellent day to shake things up and do something different.  So, let your hair down, go out on the town, explore new options, and infuse your life with a bit of joy.  But, as always with Uranus, expect the unexpected.

Saturday, November 20, 2021

On Saturday, Mercury in Scorpio forms a square to lucky Jupiter. Mercury-Jupiter aspects are optimistic, fun loving, perfect for conversations, and completing business deals. Since this aspect is a square, which can always cause minor complications or annoyances, make sure you read all the fine print before making a decision or signing documents.  Check and verify everything!

Another noteworthy feature of Mercury-Jupiter aspect is its ability to plan and foresee the big picture. So, it’s excellent for developing strategies and creating long-term goals.

Sunday, November 21, 2021

It’s an auspicious day to get to the bottom of a situation and discover the truth, and the truth can be both internal and external. Your mind will work like a detective digging beneath the surface to find the facts necessary to support your cause.  Since this is a helpful Mercury-Pluto aspect, you may find that people are more receptive to your thoughts, opinions, and ideas because your motives are to understand, not to control. But still, be mindful and choose your words wisely.

Later this evening, the Sun moves out of Scorpio, and Sagittarius season begins. It’s time to focus on the possible!

See you next week…

Astrology Forecast for Week of November 8, 2021 – November 14, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of November 8, 2021 – November 14, 2021 features 5 major planetary aspects – Mercury conjunct Mars, Mercury square Saturn, Mars square Saturn, Sun trine Neptune, and Mercury oppose Uranus.

It’s going to be a volatile week that will likely spontaneously combust, so buckle your seat belts!

Cosmic Overview:

Last week, I said that in mid-November, the ‘bowels of hell’ are going to open – and surprise, this is the week it begins.

On Wednesday, we have three major aspects that all come together during the day. Mercury, the planet of communication, forms a conjunction with powerful and impulsive Mars during the morning hours, and then the trickster god squares Saturn.  Later in the day, Mars in full battle armor takes on Saturn himself, and the likely result will be increased tensions and frustrations over the next few days.

I’m not going to sugarcoat this; this series of aspects is rough business, and you need to stay on guard and try not to react as much as possible. Instead, you need to try to use your wise mind before making decisions. Of course, I will break the aspects down completely in the daily breakdown.

Anytime we go through rough cosmic energies, you need to take care of yourself, stay hydrated, and get plenty of rest. If you have a spiritual practice, I recommend meditation and taking breaks to reconnect with your higher source.

Daily Breakdown:

Monday, November 8, 2021

We open the week with the Moon moving through responsible Capricorn.  It’s an excellent day to clear off your to do list and bring order into your life.  The Moon forms a lovely sextile to Mars during the morning hours, which should help you manage any tasks that need completion.  Later in the day, the Moon trines Uranus.  Let your originality shine, and do not be afraid to show your uniqueness.

Tuesday, November 9, 2021

If you have creative projects that need attention, then Tuesday is the perfect time for it, as the Moon forms a beneficial aspect to Neptune in Pisces.  You will find it easier to let go of your personal concerns, and your inspirational juices will flow steadily. Additionally, you may be called upon to help someone in need, because the Moon sextile Neptune allows you to feel compassion and sympathy for others, especially those that are troubled or hurting.  Later in the day, the Moon conjoins Pluto in Capricorn, and you may have to stand up for yourself or claim your power.  Avoid letting anyone take advantage of you.

Wednesday, November 10, 2021

From an astrological perspective, Wednesday is the most important day of the week.

During the morning hours, Mercury conjoins Mars in Scorpio.  Mercury conjunct Mars comes with a warning label because your reactions may happen faster than your mind can process things, and this can lead to tension, arguments, and anger.  You need to be careful with what you say, because the force and intensity of Mars may lead to words or actions that may be difficult to repair or roll back.

Mercury will then form a tense square to Saturn in Aquarius.  Mercury square Saturn has difficulty expressing itself, is often fearful of other people’s thoughts or reactions, and can lead to feelings of being misunderstood or ignored. Of course, this can lead to frustration and even rage that may be amplified by Mars squaring Saturn on Wednesday evening. Since Mars square Saturn often limits or prevents our ability to act, you need to proceed with caution, especially if you are irritable or annoyed.  Feelings of self-doubt or existential anxiety may also be a concern.

Thursday, November 11, 2021

Happy Veteran’s Day!  For all those who have served, thank you for your service.

The Moon spends its last day in Aquarius. Make sure everything important is done early in the day, because the Moon will go void of course during the afternoon hours. However, before Luna voids out, she does form a lovely conjunction to Jupiter.  Matters should flow relatively easily this afternoon and evening, and your attitude should be optimistic.

Friday, November 12, 2021

Every week, even the most complicated, has a ray of sunshine that peeks out and lets us know that despite life’s challenges, there is always hope. This week, we have the Sun forming a beautiful trine to Neptune in Pisces.  Sun trine Neptune is an excellent opportunity to do soul work and get in touch with spirit. You will notice that your intuition is greatly increased, and you will have a profound sense of inner knowing. You may also be called upon to help someone in need because this aspect makes you more empathetic and charitable.

Saturday, November 13, 2021

The weekend starts with a challenging aspect, as Mercury opposes Uranus in Taurus. You will find your mind is in overdrive, and you may have difficulty focusing on the simplest of projects. This may create a sense of restlessness and anxiety, especially if you have recently been all work and responsibilities and experienced little enjoyment in your life. You may need to take a break from your routine and do something different. However, one thing to watch is your interactions with others. You may find that you are extremely blunt, and this may be off-putting and could cause rifts in relationships.

Sunday, November 14, 2021

We close the week off with the Moon moving into feisty Aries. It’s an excellent day to focus on yourself and your agenda. Despite the cosmic difficulties in the air right now, continue to push forward and press on!

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of November 1, 2021 – November 7, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of November 1, 2021 through November 7, 2021 features four major planetary aspects (Mercury trine Jupiter, Mercury square Pluto, Sun opposing Uranus, and Mercury sextile Venus), two sign changes (Venus and Mercury), and a New Moon in Scorpio.

Now, that’s a lot of energy! So, let’s dive in.

Cosmic Overview

The bulk of the aspects this week involve Mercury, who is currently moving through fair-and-balanced Libra. Anytime planets move through Libra, relationship issues will be front and center, but one of the most important features of Mercury in Libra is the way we communicate with others. As we move through the week, pay close attention to how you communicate.  Are your conversations productive and collaborative, or are they contentious and discordant? Try to spend time listening to others rather than merely reacting to them.

The other newsmaker this week is the New Moon in Scorpio.  This New Moon is tricky because it’s in an exact opposition to Uranus in Taurus. Uranus is the planet of freedom, and this New Moon is excellent if you want to shake things up and reboot your life.  It’s especially helpful for ridding yourself of energies, people, or situations that have been holding you back.  Sometimes, to have a new beginning, you need to completely leave the past behind. There is a warning with this New Moon: don’t play with Uranus, make sure you want dynamic change before activating this planetary energy.

Daily Breakdown:

Monday, November 1, 2021

We start the week off with a lovely aspect between Mercury and Jupiter. If you want to plan your goals for 2022, this would be an auspicious day to do it. Jupiter helps you understand the big picture, and Mercury helps you organize your thoughts and ideas. So, begin planning now and make it an excellent year!  Mercury trine Jupiter is also excellent for business matters and formalizing agreements.

Tuesday, November 2, 2021

Mercury forms a tough square to Pluto, and this aspect can lead to obsessive thinking.  Try to avoid pushing your agenda or ‘truth’ on too many people, because they may feel you are trying to coerce or control them. Of course, this could lead to feelings of frustration, because you may feel alienated and dismissed. On a positive note, Mercury – Pluto aspects may help you get in touch with your true feelings or uncover hidden aspects of yourself.

Wednesday, November 3, 2021

On Wednesday, the Moon moves through Libra. During the morning hours, emotions may simmer as the Moon squares turbulent Pluto. You may want to avoid power hungry people, especially on the work front. This afternoon, the skies will clear, and the cosmic weather will be more harmonious as the Moon sextiles Venus in Sagittarius.

Thursday, November 4, 2021

The New Moon (see above) occurs at 5:15 PM EST, so get your intentions ready. It’s time to make some magic!

In other news, the Sun will oppose Uranus later in the evening. The Sun oppose Uranus is an unstable aspect, so if your world has been a bit stale, you may have an urge to shake things up. One thing you can count on is that unexpected events will probably occur at the worst possible time, so keep your guard up. Also, the Sun oppose Uranus can lead to accidents. Performs tasks as thoughtfully as possible.

Friday, November 5, 2021

Friday gives us two sign changes – Venus moves into Capricorn, and Mercury leaves Libra and enters Scorpio.

During the morning hours, Venus moves into stable Capricorn. It’s time to leave the fun and adventure behind and live in the real world. Since Capricorn is a traditional sign, Venus loves the comforts and stability the sign of the goat provides. While Venus is in Capricorn, it’s the time of year for us to look at our responsibilities and duties in our relationships and make adjustments when necessary. Moreover, the more ‘work’ we put into our relationships, the more fulfilling they will ultimately be.

Later in the evening, Mercury makes a sign change when he moves into Scorpio.  Mercury in Scorpio is the detective placement of the zodiac. It gives you the ability to see beneath the surface and resolve problems you may have. Mercury – Pluto is also keen to get to the truth, especially if secrets lurk in the closet somewhere. However, make sure you use any knowledge acquired cautiously.

Saturday, November 6, 2021

If you are in a relationship, today is a great day for love, as Mercury sextiles romantic Venus. Mercury sextile Venus is excellent for expressing your feelings and letting your partner (or potential partners) know how you feel. It’s a great evening for a date night. So, go out on the town and have a little fun while you can, because the rest of November is cosmically tricky.

Sunday, November 7, 2021

We close the week out with the Moon moving through spirited Sagittarius. Sunday should be as optimistic and fun filled as Saturday, especially with the Moon sextile benevolent Jupiter. Spend the day with people you enjoy and forget the real world – at least until it knocks on your door on Monday when the Moon moves through Capricorn.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of October 25, 2021 – October 31, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of October 25, 2021 – October 31, 2021 features three major aspects (Venus square Neptune, Venus sextile Jupiter, and Sun square Saturn), and Mars is moving out of Libra and into his sign of Scorpio.

Cosmic Overview:

This week Mars moves out of Libra, where he is in detriment, and into Scorpio, the sign he rules. Mars in Libra is concerned with relationships and seeks the opinion and approval of others.  However, Mars in Scorpio is focused, determined, self-disciplined and strategic. While Mars is in Scorpio, you have the power to achieve results and the tenacity to follow your goals until you achieve what you want. So, it’s a great time to get out your goal list, pick one out, and work on it until you get results. A word of advice – don’t miss this cycle of Mars because it only happens once every two years. Mars enters Scorpio on October 30th.

Daily Breakdown:

Monday, October 25, 2021

The Moon moves through Gemini most of the day. If you need to get stuff done, make sure you do it during the morning hours, because the Moon will spend the afternoon hours void of course.  This evening, the Moon moves through Cancer, and you may feel ‘the feels’ a little more than you usually do.  It’s an excellent night to relax and practice some self-care.

Tuesday, October 26, 2021

Venus square Neptune is problematic for relationships based on fantasy and illusion. If you experience troubles, you may want to look at your relationship and question whether your relationship expectations are unrealistic. In many cases, life difficulties will force you to look at things realistically, leading to feelings of dissolution and disappointment.  Sometimes, betrayals may surface that leave you shattered and feeling deceived. As difficult as things may be, try to avoid falling into victim mindsets. Instead, try to face your feelings and manage them productively.

Wednesday, October 27, 2021

The Moon spends its last day in emotional Cancer.  The Moon forms a lovely trine to Neptune during the morning hours.  Moon trine Neptune is an excellent aspect for creative projects, and you will find that you are emotionally sensitive to others.  However, be on guard this evening because complicated emotions may surface as the Moon squares turbulent Pluto.

Thursday, October 28, 2021

On Thursday, Venus sextiles Jupiter in Aquarius. This is an aspect you want to use to your advantage, because it’s the last positive aspect between Venus and Jupiter (the lesser and greater benefics) for six months, because Venus turns retrograde in December. Venus sextile Jupiter is exceptionally beneficial and will definitely brighten your day. This aspect is excellent for financial concerns, investments, and legal matters.

On the relationship front, be mindful of Venus square Neptune that occurred on Tuesday.  Forgiveness and working through relationship problems are crucial, but falling back into toxic patterns or believing that things will magically change is not. Venus sextile Jupiter can easily overlook issues, and this can lead to wishful thinking. Avoid looking at relationship issues with rose-colored glasses.

Friday, October 29, 2021

The Moon moves through playful Leo and forms a lovely sextile to Mercury in Libra.  It’s a fine day to spend time with friends and like-minded people, so you can engage in insightful conversations and share life experiences.  For those in relationships, the Moon in romantic Leo is excellent for a date night.

Saturday, October 30, 2021

On Saturday, besides Mars moving into Scorpio, the Sun forms a nasty square to Saturn in Aquarius. When the Sun conjoins, sextiles, or trines Jupiter, we are blessed with the most positive days of the year.  Conversely, when the Sun conjoins, squares, or opposes Saturn, we experience the most challenges.  Saturday is one of those days!

Sun square Saturn brings out feelings of self-doubt and discouragement.  You may feel that forces are against you or are limiting your ability to succeed.  This may be a day filled with frustrations, and you may believe that you do not have the energy to push through your limitations.  The key to working with this aspect is to note the areas of your life that Sun square Saturn influences, and this will give you a roadmap of where to do personal work and build self-confidence. So, despite the way you feel, press in and press on!

Sunday, October 31, 2021

Happy Halloween! The Moon moves through dutiful Virgo throughout the day, so get your tasks done early so you can participate in festivities tonight. Just be on the watch for surprising tricks, because the Moon aspects unpredictable Uranus this evening.

See you next week!

The Astrology Forecast for September 20, 2021 – September 26, 2021

The astrology forecast for September 20, 2021 – September 26, 2021, features four aspects (Mercury trine Jupiter, Mercury square Pluto, Venus opposes Uranus, and Mars trines Saturn), the Full Moon in Pisces, and the beginning of Libra season.

Cosmic Highlight:

The main highlight of the week is the Full Moon in Pisces, which happens on Monday. So, get out your snorkel; it’s time to swim.  Your intuitive faculties will be at their peak, so it’s an auspicious time to focus on your dreams, meditation, creativity, and connecting with spirit. Since the Full Moon starts a two-week cycle of releasing and letting go of things that no longer serve you, it’s an excellent time to work on addictions and self-defeating behaviors. Use this cycle wisely.

Now, on with the forecast…

Monday, September 20, 2021

We start the week with a beautiful aspect between Mercury in Libra and Jupiter in Aquarius. This aspect is called a trine, and it’s harmonious, peaceful, and light-hearted energy. Mercury-Jupiter aspects are great for signing documents, finalizing contracts, and focusing on plans for the future. So, your mood should be relatively optimistic throughout the day.

Now, a word to the wise: Take advantage of this aspect while you can. Next week, Mercury turns retrograde, and there will not be another easy aspect to Jupiter, while Mercury is direct, until November 1.

Tuesday, September 21, 2021

The Moon moves through energetic Aries, and during the morning, the Moon opposes challenging Mars in Libra. Expect possible disagreements with others. People will be easily agitated, so you may need to keep a low profile. Later in the day, the Moon sextiles Saturn. Focus on projects and tasks that matter.

Wednesday, September 22, 2021

Trouble is brewing early in the day, as Mercury forms a nasty aspect to Pluto in Capricorn. The most significant difficulty with Mercury square Pluto is that it can easily provoke arguments. Mercury rules the mind, and Pluto is about power. So, when we put these two principles together, there is a tendency to try to get people to think as we do, or for them to try to force us into thinking like them. But, of course, whenever you try to apply pressure (squares) to someone, there becomes a need to stand one’s ground. So, it’s best to avoid controversial or ‘hot button’ topics today. Also, Mercury square Pluto can lead to obsessive thoughts and, in some cases, paranoia.

The best way to work with Mercury square Pluto is through introspection. You can use this energy to dig deep within your soul and discover insights you didn’t know or weren’t aware of before. If worked with correctly, this aspect can be life-altering.

There is a ray of sunshine on Wednesday – the Sun moves out of Virgo and into Libra. Although the tension of Mercury square Pluto and the upcoming Venus in opposition to Uranus may be high, the Sun in Libra may be balanced enough that people respond proactively.

Thursday, September 23, 2021

Last week, Venus formed a gnarly square to Saturn. I wrote about it in last week’s forecast. This week, Venus makes an equally challenging aspect, as she opposes Uranus in Taurus.

On its most basic level, Venus oppose Uranus, which means that upsetting events may occur in relationships, leaving you feeling shaken up and unsettled.  However, Venus oppose Uranus, which indicates that ritualistic everyday experience in relationships will leave you unsatisfied. Of course, suppose we don’t ‘live’ life to the fullest. In that case, it tends to erupt unconsciously, leading to sudden upset and potential breakups (especially if it triggers your natal chart) because Uranus seeks freedom from conventional values it perceives as restricting and monotonous.

On the practical level, it’s important to spice up your relationships on your own. If you find things getting too dull or repetitive, and your relationship is losing its magic, then do what you can to liven it up. This will feed your relationship with new experiences, enriching them with growth opportunities.

Friday, September 24, 2021

Today, the Moon moves through earthy Taurus. It’s an excellent day to focus on financial concerns, improve your self-esteem, and enjoy everyday life. Do something you love, and a cheat meal is recommended.

Saturday, September 25, 2021

Mars forms a productive trine to Saturn. It’s an excellent day to focus on projects and tasks that need focus and discipline. You can also use this energy to re-examine your long-term goals. If you made some that were more ‘dreams’ than actual achievable goals, you could adjust them to something realistic and doable.

Sunday, September 26, 2021

We close the week out with the Moon moving through Gemini. It’s a beautiful day to socialize and connect with friends or your broader social system. It should be a positive day. Make the most of it because Mercury turns retrograde tomorrow!

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of August 23, 2021 – August 29, 2021

The astrology forecast for August 23, 2021 – August 29, 2021, features only three aspects for the week – Venus trine Saturn, Mercury oppose Neptune, and Mercury trine Pluto.

A curious thing happens with the week’s energy, and it’s common with how events occur in the real world.

Have you ever made a decision about an issue in your life or set a boundary, and then experienced self-doubt?

Self-doubt may easily occur this week, with Venus trine Saturn occurring on Monday, followed by Mercury opposing Neptune on Tuesday. So, stay on guard!

The good news is that if you hang in there and stick to your guns, Thursday will prove to be enlightening, and some of you may have an ‘a-ha’ moment or two as Mercury trines Pluto.

So, get out your journals, pens (I recently got some bomb colored Tul pens) and get to work.  You may discover insights into yourself and others that could be a game changer.

Now, on with the forecast…

Monday, August 23, 2021

We start the week with a stabilizing trine between Venus and Saturn.  This aspect is sobering and opens up an opportunity for constructive growth in relationships. You will see your relationships realistically, and therefore, you can confront relationship issues that may be further complicated under other aspects. If you need to create boundaries without potential conflicts or hurt feelings, now would be the time to create them.

Tuesday, August 24, 2021

Whereas yesterday was a sobering and realistic day, today is anything but with Mercury opposing Neptune. So, take Monday’s guidance to heart. 

Mercury oppose Neptune is an ambiguous and unsettling aspect.  Try to communicate as clearly as possible, and only discuss issues of importance, and leave heavy hitting issues for a day with more constructive energies.  Take all information received today with a grain of salt, and make sure to verify information multiple times before making any major decision.  If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.  Avoid stressful situations, if possible.

Wednesday, August 25, 2021

On Wednesday, the Moon moves through energetic and feisty Aries.  You will notice an increase in energy, drive, and determination.  However, be cautious during the late morning hours, because people may get on your last nerve.  Avoid people who have a knack for pushing your buttons.

Thursday, August 26, 2021

The final aspect of the week happens on Thursday, when Mercury forms an insightful trine to Pluto. It’s an excellent day to dig deep into the inner parts of your soul and get in touch with your true feelings and motivations.  You may also want to spend some time alone trying to understand the world around you.

Friday, August 27, 2021

The Moon spends its first full day in earthy Taurus. It’s an excellent day to focus on self-care and personal pleasures. You may want to spend the day at the spa, get a mani and a pedi, get your hair done, or simply enjoy time at the pool (or hot tub if you live in the southern hemisphere). And, of course, a cheat meal may be a scrumptious plan – just make sure it’s decadent.  However, be on guard, this evening the Moon squares Saturn, and you may need to push away negative thoughts if they invade your head space.

Saturday, August 28, 2021

Expect the unexpected during the morning hours as the Moon conjoins unpredictable Uranus. You may act on impulse, but try to do so in situations that have little impact on your life. The energy will stabilize later in the day, as the Moon trines Mars in structured Virgo. Saturday evening may be a momentous date night, as the Moon sextiles romantic and dreamy Neptune.

Sunday, August 29, 2021

The Moon spends the morning hours finishing her monthly trip through Taurus and aspects Jupiter and Mercury. You will be in relatively good spirits and need to reach out and communicate with others. Perhaps, a lovely brunch or spending time with like-minded individuals at a coffee shop will do the trick. Expect a conversation filled and frenetic afternoon with the Moon moving into chatty Gemini.

Astrology Forecast and Horoscopes for Week of August 9, 2021 – August 15, 2021

The astrology forecast for the week of August 9, 2021 – August 15, 2021, features three aspects (Venus square Neptune, Mercury oppose Jupiter, and Venus trine Pluto) and a sign change for Mercury.

One thing to note is that all cosmic energy takes place between Monday and Wednesday, and then the rest of the week is just lunar activity.

Let’s dive in…

Monday, August 9, 2021

The week begins with Venus opposing Neptune in Pisces. If you have too many expectations or your relationships are rooted in fantasy rather than reality, difficulties may surface. You may also feel let down, disappointed, or outright deceived by your partner(s). It would help if you stayed away from victim mindsets, because it may lead to emotional manipulation or controlling behavior. Boundaries may be necessary, but try not to put too many demands on your relationships, especially if you are frustrated. Instead, it’s best to acknowledge your feelings and wait until your emotions do not lead to acting hastily. If you are currently single, avoid starting a new relationship at the beginning of the week.

Tuesday, August 10, 2021

Although the Venus oppose Neptune aspect peaked yesterday, some residual gunk may linger on Tuesday. However, the clouds should part later in the day as Mercury opposes beneficial Jupiter before he leaves the sign of Leo.

Now since this aspect is an opposition, there are a few things to watch out for.  First, your ideas may be short on details, so you need to try to pause before taking a risk. Second, try not to go ‘too’ overboard. A little restraint is necessary.

The good news is your temperament should be optimistic. It’s a great day for business transactions, negotiations, and planning.  If your plans are well-thought-out, they should prove successful.

Wednesday, August 11, 2021

Wednesday is the busiest day of the week, with Mercury moving out of bombastic Leo and into orderly Virgo and Venus forming a harmonious trine to Pluto in Capricorn.

First up, Mercury is in dignity, being the Virgo’s ruler, so he can offer resources in the part of your chart where Virgo is located.

While Mercury is in Virgo, the devil is in the details, and you will want plenty of them. It’s an excellent time to focus on activities that need precision and focus.  You can do this by organizing your space, making minor changes to your routine that make your life more efficient and manageable, and making strategic plans.  Additionally, since Virgo is the sign associated with health and well-being, it’s a great time for lifestyle changes.

Later in the evening, Venus forms a harmonious trine to Pluto. In the forecast for Monday, I said to hold off on making emotional decisions if you experience disappointments in relationships.  Well, Venus trine Pluto is an opportune time to do so.  Venus trine Pluto is persuasive, so you can get your views heard, and there is an increased likelihood that you will get the results you want. However, regardless of the aspect, you will get better results with honey than vinegar. Try to reach an acceptable accord, if possible.

Thursday, August 12, 2021

The Moon moves through fair and diplomatic Libra.  This gives some added support to the Venus trine Pluto that occurred yesterday.  It’s an auspicious day to reach an agreement or formalize decisions. In addition, the Moon forms a lovely trine to Saturn, so business activities and responsibilities should flow smoothly.

Friday, August 13, 2021

The Moon continues her trip through Libra most of the day, but she does tangle with Pluto during the morning hours. Intense emotions may try to steal your joy, especially if you are dealing with people on a power trip. Later in the day, the Moon will trine joyful Jupiter, and your evening hours should be more uplifting.

Saturday, August 14, 2021

The Moon spends her first full day in Scorpio and forms a tense square to Saturn during the morning hours.  You may experience minor frustrations, but these should fade during the afternoon hours. Expect restless feelings during the evening hours as the Moon opposes Uranus.

Sunday, August 15, 2021

The Moon is still in Scorpio throughout the day on Sunday.  La Luna forms a lovely trine to Neptune during the morning hours, so it’s an excellent day to escape the real world and enjoy some downtime. Perhaps a movie or good music would be a wonderful way to recharge your batteries and prepare to seize another day.

See you next week!

The Astrology Forecast for the Week of August 2, 2021 – August 8, 2021

The astrology forecast for August 2, 2021 – August 8, 2021, features three planetary aspects (Sun oppose Saturn, Venus trine Uranus, and Sun square Uranus) and a New Moon in fiery Leo. So, it’s another challenging week (although better than the last few weeks), but manageable if you work with the energy.

Last month, Venus and Mars went through the wringer with Saturn and Uranus, and this month it’s Mercury and the Sun’s turn to bat. In August, the saving grace is Jupiter’s return to Aquarius provides a bit of protection that was not available in July.

Just a reminder, Saturn square Uranus is the major astrological aspect of 2021. So, this energy will continue to be triggered by planets making aspects to both juggernauts throughout the year. Saturn reflects the need for protective structures. Uranus signifies the need to shake up the system and usher in innovative ideas and visions that may be more helpful in everyday life. Since the two of them are currently square (obstacles), they tend to polarize one way or the other.  We experience extremes, and you will notice that alive and well in our political climate in 2021.  The key to working with this aspect is to give life to both sides of the polarity without tearing yourself in two.  Finding ways to bring new elements into your life that are progressive and more sustainable overall, while feeling like you are not uprooting your life in an unmanageable way is the objective.

This week, the Sun retriggers Saturn square Uranus, so you may feel anxious and agitated with situations that are going on in your life.  You may need to make changes in areas that have become too rigid, or you may need to build structures if things have gotten out of control. But, regardless of the side of the square you land on, finding balance will bring you the most meaning.

Monday, August 2, 2021

We start the week off with the Sun in Leo opposing Saturn in Aquarius. In astrology, these two planets dislike each other immensely, so frustrations are likely to occur whenever there is a hard aspect between them. You may go through feelings of isolation, alienation, and feeling like the weight of the world has landed on your shoulders.  As best as possible, try to meet your personal needs while taking care of your duties and responsibilities to others.

One thing you can bank on, with Sun opposing Saturn, is it will be a low-energy day. So, make sure you get plenty of rest, eat healthy foods, move your body, and take care of yourself. Despite what everyone else may think, your needs matter.

Tuesday, August 3, 2021

Tuesday features a lovely trine between Venus and Uranus, which may be some cosmic relief after the Sun opposes Saturn. Venus trine Uranus reflects the need to shake up relationships by adding excitement and a day of breaking away from routines. Tuesday may be a wonderful date night, going to a concert or movie, and since it is carnival season (all those local and state fairs in August), a bit of fun may be what you need. If you are single, hanging out with friends is always an option.  Venus trine Uranus may be the magic elixir that cures your boredom and breaks up daily monotony.

Wednesday, August 4, 2021

During the day, the Moon moves through talkative Gemini and forms a lovely trine to Jupiter in Aquarius.  It’s an excellent day to communicate with others, strategize, and even collaborate with associates. Anything you put your mind to will likely succeed.

Later in the evening, the Moon moves into Cancer. As such, you may feel more emotional than you usually do, so it’s the perfect time to distract yourself with a bit of pampering and comfort food.  Ice cream, anyone?

Thursday, August 5, 2021

The Moon continues to move through Cancer on Thursday and makes beneficial aspects to Mars and Uranus. Mars will boost your energy levels, and Uranus will bring pleasant surprises that may uplift your spirits.  It’s also a great day to focus on home, family, and those you love.

Friday, August 6, 2021

Buckle your seat belt because the Sun squares Uranus and turbulence is likely. With Uranus, you can always expect the unexpected, and situations may not go as planned, but being prepared for any snafus may curb your reactions.

On a deeper level, the Sun square Uranus reveals the areas of our lives that may need change. The harder you resist reforming your life, the more disruptive this aspect may be. Thus, it’s a favorable day to look at your life honestly and make changes that will help you in the long run, regardless of how challenging those changes may be. Conversely, avoiding change will only lead to further disruptions and disappointments.

Saturday, August 7, 2021

The weekend begins with the Moon moves through playful Leo, but Saturn threatens to rain on your parade. Therefore, you may experience minor frustrations throughout the day. Don’t let other people steal your joy—press in and press on.

Sunday, August 8, 2021

The New Moon this month occurs in fiery Leo on August 8. This New Moon is all about you. It’s an excellent New Moon to do magic and intention work that involves putting yourself in the best light. You can use this energy to get a new job, a promotion, start a new romantic relationship, or even begin new projects. So, during this New Moon, do you, and do it well.

See you next week!
