Astrological forecast February 11-18, 2019

This week is chock full of planetary juice: three planets changing signs in powerful energy shifts, Mars aligns with Uranus to trigger impulse and reaction, and Venus begins to trigger the intense and somewhat dark conjunction of Saturn and Pluto.  What does all of this mean for you?  Read on…

(If you prefer to watch these forecasts, o.)  As this week begins Mercury (mind and communication) has just moved into reflective and mystical Pisces where it will remain until April 17th.  This is a particularly long trip through Pisces because Mercury will turn retrograde and retrace its steps through Pisces between March 5th and 28th.  During this entire time, communication, learning and other kinds of transmission of information will take on a different since in Pisces Mercury prefers to rely on intuition and feelings rather than a more analytic approach.  Those of us who tend to be more analytic in nature may find this a challenge, but it can also bring about an expansion of the mind in new ways not normally available.  Those of us who are fairly watery in nature and more familiar with the ebb and flow of intuition and emotion will need to resist the temptation to sink deeper into the mists and to instead use the Piscean retrograde to reflect and clarify rather than add to the confusion.

Over the next few days Mars (aggression) moves closer to a conjunction to Uranus (radical impulse) that could create a few problems if we’re not somewhat careful.  Mars is completing a passage through its own sign of Aries where its aggressive instincts can be released unfettered by social norms or insecurities.  Watch for impulsive behaviors that could act to your detriment between February 11th and […]

Planetary news this week: Astrological update February 4 including Aquarius new moon

This week begins with a New Moon in Aquarius that is certain to explode some paradigms and create some change, whether we want it or not.  When the Sun and Moon align, we begin a new lunar cycle and our intentions that we seed at this time have the potential to take root.

Aquarius is a complex sign, and I talk more about this complexity in the video I’ll link below.  Aquarius is ruled traditionally by Saturn from which it derives its nature of detachment and clear vision.  However, Saturn fails to completely explain the concern with social justice and innovative thinking which is derived from its modern ruler, Uranus.  Under the influence of Aquarius, especially at the New Moon, we are able to see more clearly with a broader vision that is unencumbered by emotional attachment and drama.  This New Moon asks that we take a more transpersonal view lives and learn to witness the interconnectedness of all things.  Attachments and outmoded ways of thinking that don’t serve the higher good can fall away now as they are no longer needed.  A new sense of fairness can emerge as we rise above the focus on the Self that is the domain of Leo, the polarity which opposes Aquarius.

Three planets are in Aquarius this week, including not only the Sun and Moon but Mercury as well.  Mercury, representing the mind, is easily able to take the high road in Aquarius, helping us to keep our thoughts clear and free from prejudice.  Harmonious angles from Mercury to Mars and Uranus aids this process even more.  These few days until Mercury moves into the more serene and mystical sign of Pisces on the 10th have the potential for clear and […]

What I believe: Can politics and astrology mix?

politics astrologyI have been writing this blog for a long time – since November 2005 to be exact.  During this time I’ve written over 2500 posts, and quite a few have been political in nature.  One of the things I enjoy exploring in these pages is how current astrological cycles affect humans on earth, and since politics is one big way that humans interact with each other it naturally seems to have a place in this commentary.

However, quite a few of my readers feel that there is no place for politics and astrology.  This reminds me of the late 1960s and the early 1970s when a conflict between the burgeoning spirituality movement collided with the burgeoning revolutionary movements, leading to the catchphrase “the personal IS political.”  Coincidentally (?), that time period was similar to the current one in that it followed a cycle of Uranus/Pluto and the associated revolution and upheaval.

Most astrologers appear to be more on the liberal end of the spectrum, although I suspect with the resurgence of traditional and ancient forms of astrology we are seeing more conservative astrologers who resonate more deeply with the writings of the ancients than the idea of transformation and letting go of outdated thoughts and ideas.  I tested this on my page and found that 10% of my readers lean to the conservative end of the spectrum, and 90% to the liberal end.

I believe that as an astrologer I have a duty to be as objective as possible when performing an analysis of an individual’s astrological chart and to use this information to educate and enlighten rather than to trash that individual or disrespect them.  That is sometimes a fine line to walk, especially in […]
