Yes, you can still read the forecast! Here’s this week written post.
For you visual people, here’s a brief video. Please note that this video refers to the Virgo Full Moon Supermoon
The planets are pretty earthy right now which can help us to find our feet in the ever-changing unfolding of experiences of life. Not everyone loves the experience of stability and security and a realm of practicality where every decision matters, but as we cycle through the realms of intellect and thought (air), motivation and desire (fire), emotions and feelings (water) it’s helpful to have that earthy period to allow everything to settle and stabilize.
Mars (drive and motivation) just moved into Taurus last week and will be traveling through that sign until March 31st. In the security-oriented earthy sign of Taurus, Mars doesn’t like change and since Mercury will be turning retrograde in March, the upcoming weeks will not be the best times for big changes. In Taurus Mars encourages us to explore the pleasures of being in a body – sensuality, taste, living in nature, planting and nurturing the seeds of life.
We also have Venus (love and aesthetics) in another earth sign, Capricorn, until March 1st and for much of that time it will be interacting with Saturn, Capricorn’s ruler (a conjunction of Venus to Saturn culminates on the 18th). Formalizing our relationships, making commitments, spending time alone, saving our money and becoming more practical with finances and saving for the future – all of these trends occur under this planetary combination. As Venus moves closer to transformational Pluto on the 22nd we are likely to see all human interaction intensify and become more passionate and intense.
Chiron moves back into Aries on the 18th. Chiron first entered Aries in April of 2018, then retrograded back into Pisces in September. Because of Chiron’s elliptical orbit, it spends more time in Aries than in any other sign (and the second […]

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 […]
The biggest news this week is the first alignment of the harmonious sextile between Saturn (form and structure) and Neptune (transcendence and spiritual expansion). You can read more about that here, but adding practical and grounded Saturn to the creative inspiration of Neptune will be a great boon for virtually every area of our lives. This is an excellent time to give form to our creative and spiritual endeavors – to let our imaginations take us to places we hadn’t yet thought to go. Saturn’s organizational capacity will help us to ground our ideals and dreams into reality, if we take advantage of these offerings. The first exact alignment of Saturn sextile Neptune takes place on January 30th, but this alignment has been building for the past week or so.
On January 28th, the Sun and Mercury align to merge the solar light of conscious awareness with the power of the mind. This is a brilliant time for clear thinking and planning, especially in combination with the Saturn/Neptune sextile which has already harnessed our imagination to clarify our practical goals. This alignment will be in effect only for a couple of days surrounding the exact event.
Mars is the planet of fire and aggression, and when it forms stressful combinations with other planets it doesn’t always bring out the best. Mars is just coming off of a challenging square to Saturn on the 21st in which the best laid plans were delays and disappointed. On February 1st Mars will form a challenging square to Pluto – a classic signature for potential violence and power conflicts. In our personal lives this (beginning around the 28th as the aspect begins to form) […]
