Astrology Forecast week of Mar 25 – 31 2019


Mar 24 2019    Mercury    Cnj    Neptune
16°Pi49′ R    16°Pi49′ D
The use of imagination. Accurate intuitive thinking. Appreciation of subtleties. Artistic appreciation. Vision.

Illusion, delusion, confusion and working in seclusion are emphasized at this time.  This is a positive time for creative thinking and imagination.  This is not the best time to work out facts and figures as details may get muddled due to some missing or confusing data.

This is auspicious for researching the ocean, spirituality, or other Neptune-related endeavor.    New information may come out around this time which may cause more confusion, conspiracies and/or depression/melancholy.

Don’t take alleged facts at face value as propaganda and subliminal influences may be at work with advertising or other political campaigns.  This time is rife with misinformation and misleading ideas.

However this is a wonderful time to create or enjoy poetry, fiction, art, music, psychic phenomena, or spending time by the water.  Helping the less fortunate and even spending some time alone may be most productive and satisfying now.

 
Mar 26 2019    Venus enters Pisces
Venus in Pisces is quite lovely and signifies divine love, compassion, empathy, idealism and even fantasy. People who have Venus in Pisces in their natal chart truly love all living creatures. These are the people who will “give you the shirt off their own backs.”

Needless to say, it is also a sensitive and sentimental placement. This is a wonderful time for romance, fun, creativity, art, helping the less fortunate, or anything dealing with other people in a friendly, helpful way.

Trust your intuition with relationships and money matters and you should do well. If you are dating someone new, be careful not to over- idealize a potential partner. Things may go so well with relationships under this influence that you might be thinking that you have found “The One” only to be disappointed after the transit passes.

On the other hand, this is a wonderful time to do something fun, creative, imaginative with a partner like going to Disney World.    All in all, this is a wonderful time to enjoy time with loved ones (including pets!) spend time by the ocean, in nature, watching movies, or doing something artistic

 
 
Mar 27 2019    Venus    Sxt    Uranus
   01°Pi03′ D    01°Ta03′ D
Excitability over interactions with others. Unique expression of affections. Sharing excitement. Mental/artistic creativity.

Expect some excitement or surprise events of a positive nature in relationships, with young women, and possibly technical devices or on social media.  Venus rules love, affection, women, money and luxury items and Uranus represents the internet, new technology, rebellion, and shocking events.
This positive combination may work out to benefit women, money and relationships in a new and unusual way.  People may express their love in unusual ways around this time and it is received well.  This is a good time to make money through electronics, inventions or from thinking outside the box.  People want to express their individuality in partnerships now which will improve things for everyone.
In general this is a good time to meet new people whom you would not normally interact with.

 
Mar 28 2019    Mercury Stations Direct
   16°Pi05′ D
Mercury stops moving backwards and begins to move forward. This may result in the improvement of some matters.  Something significant may happen today, news, information and/or travel may change.  Something that was stalled or put on a back burner may start up again at this time.
 
Mar 31 2019    Mars enters Gemini

Mars now enters the sign of Gemini.  There may be more arguing now and many ideas being expressed forcefully.  Be careful not to get caught up in a storm of ideas or information which may take on a life of it’s own.  There may be a flurry of meetings, phone calls, or other communications at this time.   Information and ideas may be overflowing now.  Be sure to take a break if information/communications become overwhelming.

Astrology Forecast July 16 – 22 2018

 

Jul 22 2018 Venus Sxt Jupiter
13°Vi32′ D 13°Sc32′ D

Comfortable social conditions. Generosity and friendliness. Big productions or gatherings. Beautiful appearances. Good-hearted, have a sunny personality, and a strong need for attention. Agenerous nature, but can be arrogant.

This is a wonderful time to socialize and to re-connect with people Any social gatherings should be most enjoyable. There may be a slight tendency to overindulge or overspend now.

This is an excellent time to work on creative projects, enjoying art, music, foreign affairs, and higher education. Financial opportunities may arise. Avoid overindulging or laziness.

Jul 22 2018 Sun enters Leo

Happy birthday to all Leos.

If you are buying a gift for a Leo, make sure it is as fabulous as they are! Leos love to be the center of attention and anything that will entertain them and all of their many friends would be a right start in searching for this generous and noble sun sign’s gift.

Leos also enjoy sharing their vast amounts of love and entertainment. They love a party!

The one thing that you do not want to do is forget their birthday!

ROOAAR!! Do not upset the Lion!

Leos love to be flattered and if you want to influence them to change something – the best way to do it is in a way that makes them feel better. Never try to tell a Leo what to do or push them into something as this fixed sign will not budge an inch.
Some will say that Leos can be difficult in close relationships. Part of the reason is that any planet that comes too close to the Sun becomes combust or weakened dramatically, like Icarus’s wings. Dealing with a Leo one-to-one is not for the faint of heart. Lavishing sincere praise and plenty of tactfulness is necessary to keep the Lion or Lioness tame.

Leos key phrase is “I will” and they are born to rule.
The sun in mundane charts represents the leaders, presidents, royalty, CEO’s, PTA Moms, anyone in a position of authority. This is their time to shine and be appreciated.

Astrology Forecast July 9 – 15 2018

Jul 9 2018    Mercury    Sqr    Jupiter   
13°Le20′ D    13°Sc20′ R
Mercury will square Jupiter three times in the next few weeks as it stations retrograde and direct again. This can show similar or related events happening which start around now. The following dates that Mercury will square Jupiter are on August 11th and August 28th.

Mentally pushing the limits — overassimilation, overexpansion, overload of communications, proselytizing, arrogance, etc. Interest in learning and travel. Overconfident judgments. Opinions.

There may be some overconfidence and zealous opinions flying about at this time.   Any arguments now may just go on and on without resolution as the exaggerations and arrogance multiplies.

This is a good time for studying a foreign language or cultural tradition and learning.  Be careful not to overestimate how much you can learn or get done today.

Arguments and discussions go on for much longer than expected.  Reserve extra time for any meetings or group discussions.

Avoid spending too much for information or on gadgets now as you might get carried away with the credit card.  This is not a good time for classes or talks as things may get carried away and words blown out of proportion.

This is not a good time to sign documents as expectations may be too grandiose for realization.  Ideas and events under this influence need to be worked on to become more practical else they may be setting people up for failure.  People may stretch themselves beyond their capacity in media, education or travel.

Jul 9 2018    Venus enters Virgo
People may become more practical in financial and love affairs.  Now is the time to clean up and organize personal possessions  Heath matters may also be emphasized now and people will do well with diets and exercise routines.  Avoid getting too caught up in the numbers, stats, as you may lose sight of the bigger pictures with love and money.
Avoid being too critical of loved ones.  Enjoy time spent with animals and work.  You may want to redecorate or reorganize your work area.  You may find satisfaction in helping others and being of service.  Analyzing health related topics, or issues related to women may produce sound results.
Jul 10 2018    Jupiter Station Direct
        13°Sc20′ D

Jupiter has been retrograde since March 8, 2018 and today will station direct.  This signifies that something positive or some sort of expansion that was held back since last March will start to work or manifest.

At this time court cases, partnerships, travel, higher education, foreign people/places, or religion, luck and possibly money may finally arrive.  Something that you may have been struggling for the past four months may now start working or work out.

This is a positive time to begin a journey, whether mental or physical and to explore new ideas and philosophies.  Now is a positive time to publish, post blogs, videos, or anything online as it may become more successful.  Something that you posted back in March may start to become popular now for example.  Another way this may work out is something that you posted on ebay in the past few months may suddenly now be sold or get a lot of bids.

Jul 11 2018    Venus    Tri    Uranus
   02°Vi16′ D    02°Ta16′ D

Jul 12 2018    Sun    Opp    Pluto
   20°Cn01′ D    20°Cp01′ R
Sun in Cancer will be opposing Pluto. This aspect can cause some extreme changes in some part of your life. While this can turn into battles with authority, at the workplace or in career matters.  This aspect can also be used positively to turn your life around. If you feel yourself getting angry about something, stop, breath, think about it.  What is making you feel this way? What is the most positive and loving way to deal with it? Is it really worth battling over this particular issue?

There may be some major changes happening in your life with relationships, finances, education, home, family, children, or health related matters, try not to get carried away and do anything that you may regret later.

When one door closes, another one opens. Remain positive and constructive in times of adversity. You may realize that the only thing to fear is fear itself. Use your energies towards something positive and you will be greatly rewarded in the end.

Pluto is a very powerful planet. If used correctly, it can transform your life to the highest height. If not, it could help destroy you, so be aware of how you focus your energy for the next two days and use it positively.

One beneficial way to use this energy is to clean out any clutter at home.  Recycle and/or throw out anything that is no longer useful.  This aspect may be obsessive at times so focus that intense energy towards research or learning something new.

Things that you do today and tomorrow could set you on the track of success or failure, it’s all up to you!

Beware of abuse from those in positional power.  Be careful when dealing with any authority/government figures or in professional matters as things could become intense.

Possible abuses or rudeness from people in the workplace are likely in the next couple of days, try not to let their hurtful and callous behavior cause you to lose your temper.   Use any stressful experience with others to make yourself stronger and wiser.

 
Jul 12 2018    Solar Eclipse  
20°Cn41′
Traditionally the effects of eclipses were judged by how the sky appeared that night. Eclipses were originally studied to understand the effects that they had on entire cities of countries. Many years later when astrologers started delineating personal horoscopes, they could determine whether an eclipse would have a direct effect upon an individual’s life.
[This eclipse on July 12th is only viewable at the South Pole]
In ancient times eclipses were always considered bad omens.  But if the sky was cloudy and the eclipse could not be seen, then the city or country was spared any malefic effects.  So not being able to witness the eclipse was very good news.

“Eclipses were considered particularly hazardous as is shown in the communication found in the archives of Nineveh from a priest to King Ashurbanipal:

‘To my Lord the King of all Countries from your servant Bel-u. May the gods, Bel, Nabu, and Shamash bless your Majesty. If an eclipse occurs but is not observed in the capital such an eclipse is considered not to have happened. The capital means the city in which the King is staying. Now there were clouds everywhere we thus do not know whether the eclipse occurred or not. . . I have already written everything to your majesty about the portents of an eclipse that happened in the months Adarru and Nisannu. And as to the apotropaic [the turning away of evil] rites for the eclipses that are already performed, what harm can be done if there was none? . . . The great gods who live in the city of your majesty have covered up the sky and not shown the eclipse. That is what the King should know, that this eclipse has no relation to your majesty or his country. On this count the king should be happy. . . ‘” (The Encyclopedia of Astrology; Sandra Shulman; Pg 27)

Eclipses are *hot spots* and if they closely aspect a point or planet in your chart within a degree, you might have a significant event in the coming year or two.

Eclipses repeat every 19 years (approx.) and if they are prominent in a person’s natal chart, they may indicate two related and prominent events in a person’s life:  Marriage, divorce, moving, births, etc.

  • The last time we had a solar eclipse close to 20 Cancer (17 years ago) was on Jan 9, 2001.

The powerful effects of an eclipse are not often felt on the actual day of the celestial event but later on when other planets aspect the eclipse point.  Astrologers will be monitoring transits and progressions to the eclipse degree for timing of important developments for individuals and the world.

Outer planetary stations near eclipses can signify earthquakes, fires, and other significant events that affect many people or whole countries.

Jul 14 2018    Venus    Tri    Saturn
   04°Vi39′ D    04°Cp39′ R
Inhibitions which preserve stability: loyalty, duty, economy. Diplomacy. Good judgment. Business agreements. Conservatism.

Venus trine Saturn is a positive aspect for relationships, career, and finances. The planet Venus is forming a very positive aspect with Saturn and this makes it an excellent time to start a new relationship of any kind. Saturn and Venus work very well together since Venus rules Libra while Saturn is exalted in Libra.
Comforting people and showing that you care are important now.  This is a positive time to visit older relatives or people.  Nurturing overtures could lead to a successful and stable relationships.

Anything that you want done, now is the time to communicate it in a nice way. Venus is a stickler for good manners, so approaching problems in a diplomatic way will help you tremendously. Working together harmoniously is the idea with Venus and Saturn.

Also, this is an excellent time to apply for jobs so get those resumes sent out now for any employment opportunities that you are interested in.  International affairs, starting up something new, entrepreneurship, sports may go well now.

There are many more ways that Saturn and Venus work together. If you have dealings with older people (Saturn) or people who are suffering, then now is a good time to find help for them. You may come up with a new solution to provide support or money (Venus) by reaching out and showing support for international causes.

Whether you are balancing your bills or financing a new business, now it a good time to do it.  Venus and Saturn are also excellent for any creative/artistic endeavors or dealings with children.

Astrology Forecast June 17 -23 2018

Jun 18 2018    Neptune Station    Retrograde
       16°Pi29′ R
Neptune is stationing retrograde today which may result in people going back and dealing with substance abuse issues, isolation, institutions or attending to spiritual issues.

Neptune will remain retrograde from now until the end of the year – Nov 24, 2018.

Neptune rules over water, pharmaceuticals, intoxicants, addictions, psychic influences, fanaticism, music, photography, scandals, deception,  propaganda, the unconscious, confusion, mysteries, and the ocean among other things.

One way that this retrograde may work out is that something related to Neptune may be put on hold now only to resurface at the end of the year to be dealt with.  There may be a holding back or going back to a Neptune related activity from now through November.

This is an auspicious time to return to activities begun at an earlier time that is described by Neptune.  Negative influences of Neptune may be held down or pushed aside but will need to be dealt with again in November.
Jun 19 2018    Mercury    Tri    Jupiter
   13°Cn59′ D    13°Sc59′ R
Good judgment. Taking in the full picture. Speculative thought. Positive thinking. Interest in learning. Teaching.

This is an auspicious time to take a new class, publish works, travel, give and receive information.  There may be many theories or ideas bandying about.  Some may feel very confident in their beliefs or judgements now.  Stories may get exaggerated and/or spread around far and wide.   Using this time to research, spread information, teach or learn new things is most favored under this aspect.  This is also a good time to embark upon any educational projects/plans.

Mercury represents the facts, clues or precise data of a situation while Jupiter provides common sense, morals and ‘the big picture.’  When these two planets of intellect work together you get a perfect blend of knowledge and know-how.  Information is collected accurately and spread or used in the best way.

Jun 20 2018    Mercury    Tri    Neptune
   16°Cn29′ D    16°Pi29′ R
Mercury is applying to trine Neptune which makes this an ideal time for dreaming, creative writing, art, music, spirituality, psychic or mediumistic experiences and it is an excellent time for a psychic or astrology reading!

Neptune gives insight and Mercury understanding, so combined they lift the veil to the other side and allow communication across different dimensions. Intellectual borders dissolve under this aspect.

However, this is not the week for dealing with facts, figures, or detailed work as Neptune tends to muddle things on the material plane. This combination can cause some scandals and misunderstandings when dealing with everyday communications, interactions or financial matters. Missed calls and misplaced messages are common so try to give others the benefit of the doubt in these matters.

If you hear any incredible news or gossip it is best to wait and see if it’s really true before acting upon it. Beware of lies, deceptions, fake news, and scam artists as they will be very active this week.

How strongly this will affect you on a personal level depends upon how this trine interacts with your natal chart. Mercury trine Neptune can give wonderful experiences with music, art, psychology, and mysticism. It also allows a person to use these talents in constructive ways as trines can be unstoppable flow of energy (which can be destructive if you are unaware of it’s influence.)

Although paranormal abilities may manifest more strongly, the flip side to psychic is over-sensitive. This can cause emotions to flow more readily and feelings can be easily hurt. You may send or receive and email or text and take it the wrong way. It is important to be very clear in all communications, perhaps making a direct phone call instead and double-checking any work emails to avoid getting into trouble.

You may find your most productive work will be done in solitude (as Neptune is associated with the 12th house of isolation). Be aware of any *signs* or unusual events that may be the result of influences from the other side.

Neptune rules the ocean, water and the feet. Water wears down and dissolves matter. Like a worn out rug from many people walking on it or sugar dissolving in a glass of water. This aspect can result in a loss of some kind. Neptune teaches us not to become attached to samsara or material world that we live in. Buddhism teaches us that this world is just an illusion (Neptune). What we think of as solid and permanent, really isn’t.

Neptune also rules viruses, drugs and alcohol. Being careful with any prescriptions and avoiding intoxicants is important now.   Beware of a tendency to want to escape reality with alcohol or other indulgences. Also a general feeling of apathy or laziness may also be strong now.

Sacrifice is also a Neptune keyword, so volunteer work and helping the less fortunate may benefit you as well as others.

While Neptune can cause drug addiction, the positive side of Neptune (spirituality) can help a person.   This is a positive time to practice meditation a/o spirituality.  Also at this time you may have more appreciation for poetry, music, art, film, and photography.

Jun 21 2018    Sun    enters Cancer
Summer Solstice
Today will be the longest day of the year, the summer solstice. The day that the Sun moves into the cardinal water sign of Cancer.  It’s officially summer in the Northern Hemisphere and today is the longest day of the year.

Solstices are a major event for everyone, especially western tropical astrologers. This is the ingress or entry of the Sun into Cancer and the chart for this moment is studied in order to predict what to expect in the coming months.

With the Sun in Cancer, leaders may have to deal with issues centering around the caring and nurturing of others.  Patriotism, family and domestic security will be prominent topics being discussed and dealt with now.  Cancer is a water sign and not the most rational so people may react more emotionally and/or out of fear to any perceived threats.

On a positive note, people will be more likely to extend a helping hand to others, treat everyone like family.  Prominent stories in the news may center around caring for animals, the elderly and the less fortunate.

Jun 21 2018    Venus    Opp    Mars
   09°Le03′ D    09°Aq03′ D
Passionate or very emotional reactions. Sexual tension and confrontation that results from love matters. Difficulties with assertiveness and cooperation.
The last time Venus opposed Mars was on May 24, 2016.  Around this time we had the Orlando Pulse Nightclub terror attack and Prince passed away from a drug overdose.  This may be a time of passionate confrontations.
This is not a good time to start or attempt to settle an argument with people you feel strongly about.  Wait until after the effects of this transit pass.
On a positive side, this aspect may spark a new, passionate love affair or passion for a creative or financial project.  Keeping things in perspective and not getting carried away will help prevent things (budgets, projects etc) from getting carried away.
If you are starting a new relationship, creative, financial or other project, expect some opposition of some kind.  Whether it is you going back and forth in your own mind or an outside entity opposing it in some way.  Incorporating opposing forces is the best way to handle the situation and lead to success.
Jun 23 2018    Sun    Sxt    Uranus   
01°Cn44′ D    01°Ta44′ D
A keen interest in ideas which are progressive or innovative. Scientific mind. Inventive. A questioning mind. Mental excitement. Taking action which changes things and brings improvement. Joining with others for a specific cause or purpose.Many new and original ideas being revealed by leaders this week.  Shocking or upsetting events may develop as the direct result of a leaders decision which could lead to rebellion.

Leaders will discuss the internet and other forms of technology now. Advanced technology is utilized and discussed. There may be some advancement in science or metaphysics. A new study may be released which circulates quickly.This is an auspicious time to think outside the box and try a new way of doing things. Now is the time for implementing or introducing a new or unorthodox way of doing something.  It may be shocking or disruptive at first but will work out positively.

Mercury is about information, letters, texts, all types of communication.  Pluto is about deep, dark, hidden places.  The places that we are afraid to face in ourselves and others.

Post Secret is a perfect example of Mercury/Pluto energy.  A place where people tell their deepest darkest secrets.  It can be a liberating experience to share our worries with a trusted friend or professional.  Just get it out in the open, face our fears.

We may eventually learn that no matter what happens, in the end, the feeling of ‘the fear’ was the worst part.

Under this aspect, we may decide to uncover the truth of the matter.  This is wonderful for researching a new subject as under this aspect we will delve deeply and be absorbed for hours finding out all that we can.

However, this can be a negative influence if we turn the magnifying glass on another person’s personal life.  Beware of becoming suspicious over something trivial. There may be  tendency to cross the line and invade other people’s personal space.

It is normal to wonder about what a partner is doing when not around you but how far you go in investigating and questioning others about it can be the problem.

Being aware that you may feel more suspicious than necessary today and avoid compromising relationships that matter by becoming hostile or intrusive.

Finding the truth is the real meaning of this aspect. There is more than one way to obtain the information that you desire. Being honest is also important during this time or you may find others may become suspicious of you!

Focus your investigative energies on doing things that will improve your life and those around you.  There may be some things kept secret from you, but that doesn’t mean it is necessarily bad.
