Apologies once again for missing last week's forecast, as I came down with a nasty illness (not the flu, thankfully), and needed some time off to recover from this. Now that I'm back in the saddle, let's start looking at what the planets are pointing at this week.
Monday is a high intensity day in general as we will have a bit of a weak T-square from Moon in Cancer opposite Pluto in Capricorn, apex Aries Uranus,, but it will be a wide orb for Pluto and Uranus, so we're going to, in general, see some pretty intense emotions and sudden upsets. We'll also have Mercury and Venus in Pisces square Mars in Sagittarius, so do watch for upsetting messages both on the job and in your relationships on this day. Moon is in Cancer (its home sign) all day until around 22:00 PST, when it enters Leo, so emotions and some intuition will also be amplified.
Hourly: Around 2:00 PST, the Moon quincunxes Mars in Sagittarius, thus adding a bit of a backdrop of some intensity in dreams, perhaps dream visions of combat or conflict occur. This could shift into a bit of an easier backdrop around 3:00 PST when Moon trines Venus in Pisces. This has the effect of feeling better about some things we hold dear, relationshipwise or jobwise. 5:00 PST is around the time the exact opposition between Moon and Pluto in Capricorn occurs. Try not to lose your head in depressive doubts around this time. As the morning progresses, Moon trine Jupiter in Scorpio at 9:00 PST gives us a bit of a boost in luck, helps us feel a little better about dealing with our deeper secrets. As we progress into the afternoon, Aries Uranus square Moon around 14:00 PST could lead to some sudden upsets, and is the second exact hit for the aforementioned T-Square, so try to stay calm and just focus on tasks if you can. Do not lose your nerve. Fortunately, we should be able to experience some respite with Moon trine Chiron in Pisces near 16:00 PST. Try to relax a bit around then.
Tuesday the square from Mars to Mercury intensifies, but Venus moves on a bit, so there is still potential for communications problems, and on top of that, Moon in Leo apexes a Yod between Sun and Saturn around midday. How we feel about things will come to the forefront, and if it's not serving us, we need to forge a new way forward and get ourselves to the life we want, not stick around in a life that doesn't help us. Venus tightens its trine to Jupiter this day as well, so we should see some further boosts to good fortune in some regards.
Hourly: Not much to say. 2:00 PST gives us Pluto sextile Venus, could be good for a nightcap or a midnight snack of sorts. Into Tuesday evening I do see a quincunx from the Moon to Neptune in Pisces around 19:00 PST, which could make for some confusion in matters. We may not all be thinking clearly when this aspect passes. 21:00 PST is about when the Moon passes over the North Node, a good time to put a little oomph into advancing a small hobby perhaps.
Wednesday gives us a Fire Grand Trine around midday of Moon in Leo, Mars in Sagittarius, and Uranus in Aries. This is an excellent day to put forward some drive and get some stuff done, though the window will be relatively short as the Moon is one of the apex points, so make the most of it in the middle of the day! Mars still squares Mercury and Venus too, so watch out for messaging mishaps, and Mars is forming a semisextile to Pluto which will intensify Thursday, so do watch for sudden outbursts. Moon will also be in Leo all day until about 23:00 PST at which point the Moon enters analytical Virgo, so do make use of the fiery energy and get some stuff done!
Hourly: Early morning gives us Moon quincunx Mercury in Pisces, which could inflame a few emotions on the way to work. Try not to lose your cool. Later on in the morning, Moon quincunx Venus around 9:00 PST could indicate a point where we're questioning whether our job or our relationships are worth it around this time, or if there's something you're missing. You may not even know what to make about your gut feelings, so we'll be prone to second-guessing ourselves a bit around then. We do also have Moon square Jupiter around 11:00 PST, so while we have the energy to get things done, we do need to watch out for mishaps and missteps that would serve to derail that progress we should be making.
Into the afternoon, Uranus trines Moon exactly around 15:00 PST, giving a boost in our ability to suddenly come to a breakthrough in matters bothering us, but be careful as Mars square Mercury around 16:00 PST could serve to derail that a bit as well. Do not send off that nasty email or text, as Moon quincunxes Chiron in Pisces around 17:00 PST and I can guarantee any sudden harsh words will come back to bite you almost right away. Finally, in the nighttime hours, Pluto sextile Mercury around 21:00 PST may help sooth some of those harsh words from earlier, and we may even be able to come to a decision to end something not good for us, for the greater benefit of all.
Thursday is a high intensity day as we have a lot going on in the sky. For starters, the Full Moon in Virgo happens then, and will be a pretty important day to get important projects done if you're able to do so. Also keep in mind that Mars is very busy with its continuing squares to Mercury and Venus, and the semisextile to Pluto, so we're all running under the gun to get thing done. Moon trine Saturn should be a helpful boost, though, so this should help us focus enough to get some work done.
Hourly:Jupiter trine Venus around 3:00 PST is a good indicator of some good fortune, and perhaps some restful sleep this night to boot. Around 8:00 PST is when the Pluto-Mars semisextile becomes exact, so do be careful of aggressive drivers on the way to work. Around 10:00 PST gives us Moon trine Saturn exact which will help us feel a little more confident in getting our work done.
Later on, around 17:00 PST is when the Full Moon occurs, so a good end to a good day if you can avoid all of the psychic pitfalls going off this day. Moon opposes Neptune exactly around 21:00 PST, leading to perhaps some off-the-wall thinking or some warnings about letting ourselves get too wrapped up in fantasies or inebriation. We end with Moon semisextile the North Node around 23:00 PST so we'll be thinking about the future a bit more too as we drift off to sleep, presumably.
Friday is all over the place. We have Mercury and Venus ganging up in a conjunction in Pisces, still squaring Mars which is trying to keep up that connection, and the Moon moves in around midday to oppose Venus and Mercury, thus squaring Mars and forming yet another T-Square. Venus and Mercury, however, do trine Jupiter, so we have a little bit of insulation from some of the more fiery aspects of this day. Also, the Uranus-Pluto square is still there, but continues to weaken, and pretty soon it will be a thing of the past. But we've got a bit of highly charged energy here, so be careful with how you get along with others, and given the volatility of this day, it may not be the smoothest day for the finishing of projects. Tighten up what you can and perhaps take the rest of the day off to try and relax is my call.
Hourly:Jupiter trine Mercury around 5:00 PST does give us a good bit of luck for the morning commute, so do take some advantage to that, as the T-Square is starting to form. As we go into the afternoon hours, the Moon starts making all sorts of aspects. 13:00 PST, Moon sextile Jupiter gives a little bit of luck and a little sense of ease when it comes to how we feel this day is going. After that, it gets a little dicey. 14:00 PST is about the time the Moon opposes Mercury, followed by 16:00 PST when Moon opposes Venus. This may be when we feel the T-Square just a little stronger, so do be on guard. 20:00 PST gives us Moon opposite Chiron, and this could be a time we have our feelings hurt or someone hits a rough spot. Or maybe we remember something from the past, some slight, and it digs at us. Be aware and work it through.
Saturday could be a bit of a mixed bag, as we have the Moon in airy Libra from around 2:00 PST or so. We'll be weighing decisions pretty heavily, and there will be a square from the Moon to Saturn then too, so we could find ourselves in tricky territory about the conflict between fun and duties. Sun starts conjuncting Neptune as well, so we should have some good flashes of insight for this weekend, perhaps a creative project or reading a good book. Mercury, Venus, and Chiron are conjuncting as well, so a good time to make amends if there have been some slights, or a nice day to hit the spa.
Hourly: Not too many exact aspects from what I'm seeing for Saturday. Uranus semisextile Venus around 12:00 PST could trigger some chance encounters with someone new, or some unexpected finds at a sale. Moon square Saturn around 13:00 warns us to be mindful of our responsibilities and our obligations. You might not be able to afford that trinket, or perhaps that new person has an appointment or a significant other that precludes you from doing much more with them. Finally, around 19:00 PST, Mercury semisextile Uranus provides the chance for some unexpected messages, maybe invitations, to come our way. See what happens.
Sunday can be a day of mending fences, if you take the opportunity. Venus, Mercury, and Chiron are all tightly conjunct, and they are relatively still trine Jupiter, so it's a good day to get a few things off your chest. There's still the slight square to Mars, however, so it may not all go smoothly.
Hourly: Quite a bit going on, as going into the day around Midnight PST, Moon quincunx Sun does point to some give and take of feeling out the vibes, and we might not be weighing things as well as we should. Sun conjunct Neptune around 5:00 PST may give us some interesting dream visions, or perhaps an awesome idea for a creative or literary project you may have brewing in your head.
Around 10:00 PST, the Mercury-Venus-Chiron conjunction picks up steam, and this go on all the way past 14:00 PST. Just be aware of Moon square Pluto around 13:00 PST in the middle of that massive triple-conjunction, and if you're making amends with someone dear to you, know that it might get a little tense at times.
Around 16:00 PST, Moon sextile Mars gives us a little bit more of an energy boost, nothing too jittery, to boost our confidence a bit, and Moon semisextile Jupiter around 17:00 PST may further serve that slight confidence boost with a burst of luck. Finally, we end the day around 22:00 PST with Uranus opposite Moon, so do be careful about any sudden outbursts or shocks that disrupt you as you head into the following week.
So there we have it: A highly intense week, a Virgo Full Moon, and a couple T-Squares mixed in with a Fire Grand Trine. A lot going on, but if you can keep it all together, you should be able to come to a more relaxing weekend. That's about all I have time for tonight, so I'll leave you go here. Peace out.
We're going to try this weekly thing again. Now, I've added a multitude more asteroids to look at and we're going to be looking at some of these other energies as they relate to the major planets. Right now, I'm ignoring asteroid to asteroid aspects, as I tried that with some of last week's daily reports (that I was able to get to), and I think I may have overloaded things just a bit. So trying to cut this back and see what's really pertinent. So think of it as aspects to major planets/Chiron/Nodes at tightest orbs for the week. Let's get started as I've got a lot of catching up at work to do this week too.
First off, we have a Solar Eclipse this week on the 15th, mainly visible in the Southern Hemisphere from what I know, so this week is going to be a bit of a super-intense dynamo. Don't expect normalcy this week at all.
Monday, we've got Moon in Capricorn for the entire day, so our thoughts and feelings are going to be centered around our career objectives. Basically, how we're going to we're going to begin the early morning hours around Midnight PST with Chiron conjunct Narcissus, which points to some sort of cathartic healing or possibly wounding, this dealing with our own self-pride or of asserting our own self-importance. Mars is passing over Antares around this time as well, a quite potent fixed star around 10 Sagittarius. A good start for endeavors involving gain for ourselves, but could lead to some trouble with friends and associates. Probably we prioritize our own pet projects over group projects. Moon quincunx North Node around 1:00 PST points to some give or take of our feelings and our greater destiny. As this denotes a semisextile to the South Node at the same time, we're likely wondering just how we're to get to where we're supposed to go if the past keeps getting in the way? Good question, and one only you can answer for yourself. An hour later at 2:00 PST, Moon passes over fixed star Vega, which further boosts some of the potential for financial gain, but again, at a risk of trouble through messages written and possible public chastisement, so for some reason I'm thinking potential trouble via social media overnight with this one. The Internet is forever, after all.
Monday morning around 8:00 PST gives us Pluto semisextile Mercury, and this points to some potential trouble or some irksome problems involving messages and travel. Moon conjuncts Pluto at 11:00 PST, and semisextiles Mercury around Noon PST as well. So there is a great dynamic with our feelings or possible psychic vibes regarding travel, communication, heightened emotions, and basically the making and breaking of matters.
Personal Example: tire pressure indicator came on on my car over the weekend, and I got it go go off by putting air in my tires, but also I noticed my treads are pointing towards me needing to replace all the tires next service (within the next 2 weeks if not sooner)... If the light comes on again on my way to work around this couple of hour span, well, work's just going to have to do without me for a few hours until I can get them replaced then, as that's pretty problematic to have to deal with. This is a possible manifestation of these aspects.
Into the evening around Monday, we've got Mars semisextile Black Moon Lilith, and Jupiter sextile Moon, which should help reinforce some sense that we're being watched over, or at the very least a bit of a boost of luck. The Mars/Black Moon Lilith connection might give us a bit of an intuitive boost to get some tasks done or guide us to a course of action. An hour later, Moon square Eris near 17:00 PST points to some helter-skelter in how we feel about how things are going, and we should take care that we don't go off the deep end.
Later on going into the nighttime, 20:00 through 22:00 PST gives us a trifecta of Moon semisextile Sun, Moon semisextile Juno, and Uranus square Moon. The Moon is, of course, priming itself for the solar eclipse on Thursday, and there's going to be that underlying tension between that and of course some of our dealings with our loved ones as well (Sun conjunct Juno about this time as well). Uranus square Moon with the other two aspects combined could lead to some heated emotions in the home or with our families, so this would probably be an ideal night to just turn in early and not get into unnecessary conflict. Our dream visions overnight could be a bit intense, so do pay attention to sudden shifts in the dreamscape.
Tuesday, we begin overnight with Moon sextile Chiron while Vesta squares Neptune at Midnight PST, and Ixion semisextile Moon closer to 1:00 PST. So it's possible we'll be clearing the air a bit in overnight conversations, but there's also a nagging feeling that something is off when it comes to what we hold dear in our innermost core. Perhaps a sense of betraying our own self-interest, or perhaps we're chasing phantoms in our dealings with others around this time. Again, pay attention to dream visions very carefully around this night. As we wake up around 7:00 PST, Uranus sextile Juno facilitates some pleasant domestic surprises, like maybe a chance coffee or breakfast in bed from a loved one.
The afternoon into evening hours around 15:00 PST gives us trouble as Jupiter squares Mercury and Moon semisextiles Venus. There is a major potential for miscommunication or saying the wrong thing, so do be careful with your words, especially to significant others or with art buyers perhaps, as there is a high potential for someone to take something the wrong way. Use tact. By 18:00 PST, Uranus sextiles the Sun which is good for some pleasant surprises. Perhaps the workday works out a bit better than normal at the end? Or perhaps a chance encounter at a watering hole allows for some spirited good times. 19:00 PST brings Moon semisextile Saturn, so there's a good chance of that nagging feeling that we need to call it a night early and deal with some responsibilities, as much as we may want to avoid them. Finally, 21:00 PST and Eris sextile Mercury allows for some possible nice surprises in terms of an unexpected message, or perhaps an error in your favor? Or maybe an unexpected detour on the way home leads to a little bit of an adventure.
Wednesday really isn't my most favorite day, for varying reasons. Early morning aspects to watch out for are Ceres retrograde opposite Moon around Midnight PST, Pallas square Moon near 1:00 PST, and Sun conjunct Juno around 2:00 PST. There is that potential for some late night important discussions with the husband or wife or partner or whoever. Probably a gripe about the home that "just can't wait." It should pass, however.
Around wake-up and commute time, 5:00 PST's Moon semisextile Black Moon Lilith could point to us waking up from a rather bizarre dream. Take notes if you have time and can remember it. 6:00 PST's Mars sextile Moon gives us a boost of energy, and we might not need as much coffee to get up and running if we're fortunate. Around 10:00 PST, Moon semisextile Neptune guides us to use our intuition, and this is about a good time to be listening to our gut feelings about an important matter. Finally, after noon around 13:00 PST, Moon crosses the South Node. We might be reminiscing about something we'd rather cling to in the past, but now really isn't the time to be clinging to said past. We need to move on. Finally, to close the night out later on, Sun semisextile Chiron around 21:00 PST may bring up that thought from the past again. Take note of it, as it may be important once the Eclipse begins the next day.
Thursday is a celestial minefield as we enter Eclipse Day!Moon starts off as semisextile Pluto around Midnight PST and that may bring for some dramatic dream visions leading us to knowledge as to what to shed from our past. Jupiter square Moon around 4:00 PST has the potential of giving us some stern advice from a higher power, or a greatly disturbing dream. We may wake up feeling that we're not fulfilling our greater calling in some way.
Later on in the morning and into the mid-afternoon, we have a plethora of aspects to consider, including the big one. 7:00 PST's Uranus sextile Mercury brings some good favor for travel and communications, and should insulate us from sudden mechanical or technological failures slightly. Or if those failures happen, we may see right away what benefit we just had from it. (Think hitting a red light, preventing us from being sideswiped by someone running another red light one block down). 10:00 PST gives us Uranus sextile Moon and Moon conjunct Mercury and that can be an important vector in time where we get some unexpected good news! Moon conjunct Juno around 11:00 PST will also be pretty good for relationships with our families and loved ones. Could be news of a promotion or a bonus, as one possible example, leading to a vacation some months down the road. Around Noon PST, Moon semisextile Chiron warns us to be watchful about how we're feeling about matters for the rest of the day. Good advice, as the next hour brings the big event.
13:00 PST, the Solar Eclipse should be underway, and Ixion is sextile both the Sun and Moon during this Eclipse culmination. So basically, for this entire Eclipse cycle, we should have some insulation from betrayals and those that would take advantage of us. This will be especially true for the rest of the day here, and should greatly amplify our own personal power. A couple hours later, Saturn sextile Venus around 15:00 PST should build upon this, and should bring us a bit of power to complete tasks at work and get things done.
In the evening and into the night, 20:00 PST brings us Venus conjunct Nessus. We will want to be watchful and be careful of our obsessions with what we desire, lest we push too hard and force ourselves inappropriately towards our more carnal desires. On the other hand, if we're wise, we can harness this aspect and utilize some major focus to complete an important task for work, or to complete a personal project or hobby dear to us. All depends on how we use Venus-Nessus energy. Finally, to finish off the night, Mercury conjunct Juno while semisextile Chiron around 22:00 PST should allow for nighttime discussions with family and loved ones to go somewhat smoothly, though we may have to confront some uncomfortable truths. Could be something mundane as leaving the seat up. (Or, seems mundane to some... trust me, put the seat down and just keep the peace on this one).
Friday doesn't do a whole lot of major aspects overnight. Mainly, 7:00 PST is the first wave of aspects as Moon in Pisces sextiles Saturn and conjuncts Nessus. We might be able to discipline ourselves to not be too emotional on the way to work, and might be able to be a little more vigilant on the road too, perhaps. In other words, might insulate us from road rage. Maybe. Emotions can be a bit tricky during Pisces Moon. Ixion sextile Mercury at the same time points to this mitigation of raging emotions to be the case. Drivers and those who normally are harsh in their words might actually be a little more chill Friday morning.
Venus conjunct the Moon around 9:00 PST should gives us a bit more pride and more happiness at work. It's Friday, so that usually helps! Not to mention we might be thinking about plans with some loved ones later on? Ceres retrograde quincunx Moon around 10:00 PST suggests that you might want to make sure the home front is in order though, and you did turn the stove off, right?
Pallas sextile Moon around 14:00 PST should have us feeling a little bit wiser, and should give a bit more of a creative boost when dealing with finishing up work tasks. Black Moon Lilith sextile the Moon around 16:00 PST is useful for an intuitive boost.
Going into Friday night, Mars square Moon near 20:00 PST could lead to some unnecessary arguments. Make sure plans are put into place earlier when the energies are a little bit more conducive, and try not to be upset at sudden changes. Ceres retrograde quincunx Venus around 22:00 PST could lead to some awkward social situations too, so perhaps that plus the Mars-Moon square suggests that this isn't the night to meet someone new for a meaningful relationship. A short-term fling, maybe, but know what you're getting into. Moon square Vesta around 23:00 PST suggests to me that maybe just a night out with the guys or girls is the better course of action, as we could wind up feeling like we're being asked to do things we're not comfortable with. Actually, with those last three aspects, I'd recommend a low-key home night. I don't suggest Monopoly, as this is striking me as an increased "table-flipping" likelihood Friday night. Just watch a movie or something.
Saturday might gives us some strange or troubling dream visions as we have Mars square Neptune around 3:00 PST, and that definitely can set the stage for some intense arguments. 4:00 PST brings us Vesta trine North Node, and Mercury conjunct Sun. We'll be feeling a little more secure in the thought of being on the right path in some way, I think.
After people wake up on Saturday, around 10:00 PST, Pluto sextile Moon gives us a boost of energy that might be good for some morning cleaning up around the house, and Jupiter trine Moon later on around 14:00 PST should further bolster this. Could even be a good day for bargain hunting at markets, and we should be a little bit more lucid. Moon semisextile Eris around 15:00 PST points to potential trouble when it comes to some slight upsetting us, so try to keep your cool. This will be amplified more as Uranus semisextile Moon around 20:00 PST will be a stronger manifestation of this. Around 22:00 PST brings even more emotional catharsis with Chiron conjunct the Moon. Good chance of tempers and emotions being more inflamed, perhaps. Finally, 23:00 PST sees Ixion square the Moon and Juno semisextile the Moon. If there are problems related to infidelity (suspected or real), there's a good chance those arguments could come out now. I'd recommend being aboveboard in your dealings right now.
Finally, Sunday ratchets up some of the emotional intensity from the previous day, as Moon crosses fixed star Scheat around 3:00 PST. With the other harsh emotional aspects from Saturday night, there's a good chance of people saying the wrong thing around this time. 4:00 PST's Sun semisextile Moon further denotes a time where people could be at odds with others. Shortly after this, Moon crosses into fiery Aries, and this definitely points to some flaring tempers for much of the rest of the day.
Sunday evening isn't much easier as Moon squares Saturn and that points to some harsh criticisms and potential arguments. There's some possibilities of reconciliation, however, as around 18:00 PST, Ceres retrograde trines the Moon. After some cooling down, it's possible that Sunday dinner might actually be a little more civil. Finally, to finish up the week, Jupiter quincunx Eris around 23:00 PST suggests that we're feeling a bit more uncertain about whether we're on the right career path going into the next work week. Like we're not entirely in control going into a new week.
So there you have it, a high-powered week complete with a Solar Eclipse New Moon, and some potentialities regarding relationship arguments and possible infidelity indicators. Do be careful and do be above-board this week in your dealings with others. I'd really have to say trust your instincts, as there's going to be some ruffled feathers, and you just need to keep yourself centered to get through it all. And with all planets still direct, there's plenty of forward momentum to keep us going through it all. And on that note, I'm out. Peace out.
Apologies for the lateness of this report and a couple missed days. I took a little time off for the holidays this weekend and to recharge a bit, so hopefully you will all understand. Anyways, this is the last weekly report for 2017 (or what's left of the week, so it's effectively an extended weekend report), and some intense energies to finish out the year. Let's get on with it.
Thursday starts out with a big Moon trine to Saturn, which should help restore some discipline and our sense of duty just slightly. We follow up with Moon trine Venus (which itself is now in Capricorn), which will also bolster our easier feelings about what we desire, how we earn money, and relations to others. We should be aware of the Moon squaring Juno and sextiling Nessus in the morning as well, so things might be a little edgy on the homefront, but we can smooth a few things over and not get too uptight or obsessed about what's going on. As the morning progresses, Moon trine Sun and square Kaali will help us proceed with our goals a bit more and get us further to completion of whatever we've set in motion since the last New Moon (which I've yet to look at in depth, so bear with me).
As we go futher into the evening, Venus sextile Nessus will ease up some obsessive aspects and possibly act as a mitigation against some of the more unpleasant sides of relationships. Moon sextile Neptune about the same time will help us relax and bring to us some early dream visions most likely. As we proceed into the overnight hours, Venus semisextile Juno and Uranus semisextile Chiron will serve to trigger some deep conversations about how we're relating to others and our loved ones, as well as what we need to do to push forward and heal some past hurts. Keep in mind that Uranus is slowing down and is almost station direct (and will go direct on Janurary 2nd), so this is a "get ready to go" signal. Finally, Destinn conjunct the Moon and Moon opposing Dejanira will bring to light some issues of how we've been kept down and it's basically a destined point of us coming to this realization. Mercury trine the North Node at the same time may serve to allow us to convey this and finally come up with or enact a plan of action to override this.
Friday overnight, we'll have some disconcordant energies that will probably bring us to a crisis point and most likely affect our dream state. Moon squaring the Nodes way early in the morning while quincunxing Mercury will bring us to a point mentally and emotionally that the realizations (which I mentioned for Thursday)aren't the most pleasant ones. Moon will oppose Jupiter and then square Ceres soon after, so we're likely to be feeling a crisis point with home matters and long term abundance. Could be wondering how you're going to make rent going into the New Year as one example. Fortunately, we have Moon trining Pluto soon after this, which will ease the pressure a bit and if we're fortunate, we'll have an insight as to how to sidestep the problem.
Starting the work morning on Friday (based on Pacific Time), Venus conjunct Black Moon Lilith will bring an otherworldly drive towards what we're valuing in terms of romance and whatever jobs or projects we're doing. Use this energy to your advantage and finish up some important tasks. Moon trine Apophis and Lucifer later will allow us to endure and dial down any disruptions and get through the noontime (PST) hours, and maybe help us sidestep some of the more bragodocious bunch. Be diplomatic where you need to, as Moon soon semisextiles Eris, triggering a little bit of chaos. Try to keep your head. Moon opposing Karma soon after and a couple hours later, Moon semisextile Uranus could bring a bit more disruption, and we might have to swallow a bitter pill if we didn't get our ducks in a row... or a sweet pill if we did. Moon sextile Chiron should lean this point in time more towards the sweet pill. Going into the nighttime hours, Moon conjunct Sedna and Algol can make us feel way uneasy about our suspicions, and we could lose our cool if we're not careful... potentially even accusing others of betrayal whether real or imagined. Check your facts before pointing fingers Friday. Moon quincunx Pholus going into the overnight hours soon after this suggests we watch how hard we party Friday.
Saturday overnight gives us Pallas semisextile Sedna, so given the nighttime in Friday aspects, you really just should take a taxi home if you had too much, as justice can come down on you hard. Eris square Lucifer and Apophis around the same time, this is a time where people who overestimate their capabilities will hoist themselves by their own petards and take others with them. Do not drink and drive this weekend. Shouldn't do that anyways, but the chances of consequences are highly elevated this weekend! And checkpoints, most likely too, especially as it's New Year's weekend! Save yourself the trouble. Jupiter semisextile Mercury a little after this also further screams law enforcement and transportation. I'm strangely specific with this but that's what I'm feeling.
Going further into Saturday morning, the Moon, now in Gemini, quincunxes Black Moon Lilith and Venus, a discordant set of aspects that will make for some iffy encounters with others, particularly women and possibly occult encounters. Moon trine Juno might smooth this over a bit when it comes to our loved ones and significant others, but don't expect this to be a normal day. Later on in the afternoon, Sun semnisextile Kaali will serve to amplify our ego and bring some fated events. Moon quincunx Sun around the same time while the Moon also trines Kaali will further amplify this. We might feel a bit stronger, but the events just aren't going to go the way you might expect. Allow for variances in your Saturday plans. Going into the overnight hour, Destinn opposite Mars will probably trigger some airing of grievances or force open some challenges that we'll have to overcome.
Sunday is New Year's Eve day, of course, so this is already going to be an intense day just for the calendar alone. Overnight Dejanira square the Nodes is definitely a warning to be aware of your surroundings throughout the entire day. Watch your drinks like a hawk if you celebrate that way. Moon sextile the North Node at the same time as the Dejanira aspect will give us some insights to consider this, so we should be ok most likely. The Moon quincunxes Dejanira at the same time as well, so some heavy Dejanira going on here. It's the victimhood asteroid, so be aware and don't be caught off-guard, and you should be OK. Very early in the morning (PST), Ceres trine Mercury and Ceres sextile the Moon should bring us safely home if we stayed out late, or some safety at home if we stayed in or got back earlier. As we approach the evening hours, Uranus sextile the Moon while the Moon squares Chiron should make for some interesting energies... don't expect everything to go to plan, and watch out for some sudden upsets, but they shouldn't be too severe. As we approach the ball dropping, Uranus quincunx Karma and Moon opposite Pholus will bring some unexpected resolutions to events that have been going on in our lives, and the Moon-Pholus aspect, well, it's very likely the revelry of the night will catch up to us somehow and probably influence some questionable, and maybe fun for some, decisions. And then, the new year begins on the Pacific Coast and overnight going into New Year's Day, Uranus semisextile Chiron should bring some sudden resolutions to some of what's been ailing us (or if we're not careful, sudden inflictions of wounds, so be careful).
And there we have it. 2017 ends with a bang, and it's definitely a time to be cautiously optimistic. Party smart, party hard, and don't get caught up in foolish shenanigans. Be safe, have a good time, and may this hell of a year end on a positive note.
After a week of some partial respites, we are heading into another major powerhouse week. We're starting off with one massive bang, and we've got more bangs coming. Massive, massive, massive, MASSIVE shifts are ahead, and we start off the week with one of the largest ones. Not just the Moon, but Saturn and Mercury are big news this week. Let's get started.
Monday, to begin with, comes directly after the New Moon in Sagittarius... on Galactic Center! This lunar cycle is incredibly potent, and what comes the day after is another shift, and we'll get to that in a moment... We open with a powerhouse plethora of aspects as the clock struck midnight (Pacific Time). So we had the New Moon... we also have the New Moon quincunx Sedna on Algol, which is definitely something to consider in our relations with others for not just today, but the entirety of the Lunar cycle. Betrayals and how we handle them will be very much in focus. This goes hand in hand with Ceres quincunx Pluto to bring some discord into the homefront, and we also have North Node trine Mercury and square Vesta. While we'll have some easier communications with others, what is being communicated may make us question what we've held dear thus far. As we proceed into the day, the Moon will make a direct conjunction to Saturn which will serve to either dampen or stabilize some of our emotions. We may even be able to look at what's going on right now a little more objectively. Later on in the afternoon, Jupiter semisextile Mercury retrograde will likely trigger some much-needed communications with others, perhaps a boss figure. Keep a tab on your inner feelings as the Moon crosses over Black Moon Lilith. Some of those uneasy feelings may be coming to you for a reason. Into the evening, Mars sextile Moon will give us a nice boost of energy to finish up the tasks of the day. We end with Moon conjunct Apophis, where we may reflect on what we need to let go of or what we have lost.
Tuesday ramps up the energies as we have Moon sextile Neptune, which may help us understand our dream visions from overnight. We'll also have Jupiter sextile the Moon around mid-day and Mercury semisextile the Moon as well. This should bolster us with some flashes of insight, and allow us to harnes some energy to get through the later part of this day. Moon will also cross fixed star Vega around this time as well, and this could be a good time to hear some news about retirement plans and pensions... but it could also convey some hard messages from ill-intent from others. Watch out for scandals, especially as Moon will conjunct Lucifer a little later on. Someone notable is likely to be hoisted by their own petard on Tuesday. Later on into the evening, Pluto conjunct Moon will prime us for knowing what we need to get rid of to move forward, for the betterment of our emotional health. Note this very well, because shortly after, Saturn's time in Sagittarius comes to an end. Saturn crosses into Capricorn, its home sign early Tuesday night (Pacific Time). This will be the peak of the monumental shift in energies we have been feeling for a while, and Saturn will stay in Capricorn for the next couple of years before crossing into Aquarius, another sign it co-rules with Uranus. We don't have to worry about that yet, though. What it does mean is, Tuesday is the beginning of four to five years of Saturnian overdrive. Get ready.
Wednesday does not let up, as we begin with Sun conjunct Pholus and Eris square Moon. We may be feeling a bit intoxicated or blurry-eyed through much of the day, so be on guard. Moon sextiles Chiron at the same time Venus semisextiles the Moon, which brings us Venus square Chiron around the same time as well on Wednesday. Venus also has a trine from Uranus and Uranus squaring the Moon about the same time as all of this, well... we're going to be dealing with some intricate emotional wounds, and while the solutions for getting past the hurts will be apparent, they will not be easy. But there is some potential for sudden shifts in fortune that may get us past this period in time. Sun and later on Saturn semisextile the Moon will act as a catalyst going into the evening for some reflection on moving on with our plans and our lives. Keep in mind, Mercury is all but motionless, so if it's a new venture, may want to wait a couple days before we're sure we can move forward. Going into the nighttime, Pluto conjunct Lucifer will bring us to the heights and lows of hubris. Don't be a bigger asshole than you need to be. Fortunately, Moon conjunct Juno can mitigate this somewhat and give a bit of a nice touch to nighttime dreamtime with loved ones.
Thursday ramps up some more energy further than we may be ready for, as the Sun will follow Saturn into Capricorn and will also be conjuncting it tightly throughout the day. Discipline and structure, and how we keep things together will be a focus throughout much of the day. Early on in the day, Moon conjunct Kaali will be amplifying our feelings, defintely during the morning commute as well. Give yourself a few extra minutes to deal with the road rage that might be out and about there. Early in the workday, we'll also be dealing with Mars squaring the Moon. Be mindful of heightened tensions. Into the afternoon, Ceres square Vesta could bring some discord and conflict between our home life and some institutions that demand structure, such as church or the legal system, as possiblities. Saturn and Sun conjuncting tightest about this time as well will ramp up the enforced structural considerations, so don't be surprised if you're held up by some bureaucratic red tape as you're trying to square things away at work. Dejanira square the Moon a little bit after this may show that we're probably a little demoralized and feel impotent after the events of this day. But improvements are coming. Mercury sextile the Moon should give us a little bit of an outlet to vent if we need to, and likely be understood more than normal.
Friday could be a bit of a mixed bag, and brings us more shifts. More shifts than I initially realized. Jupiter squaring the Moon could make for some troubling dream visions, so be ready for anything. Moon will also cross the South Node, so we'll be finding ourself reminiscing more about the past. Almost appropriate for the leadup to Christmas Day, if you're fond of such holiday memories. Maybe it's not fondness? Anyways, we'll also be seeing Ceres opposite Moon about the same time with the Node crossing, which could be problematic. Try not to make any sudden text messages to your significant others without giving what you say some serious thought, as Mercury is stationary at this point... and around the end of the workday on the West Coast of the U.S., Mercury will finally end its retrograde period and go direct! All those plans of starting new things you were waiting on? Now we can go forward. Just keep in mind that Mercury will still be relatively motionless for a day or two while it gets going, and will still be in post-retrograde shadow, so you're bound to see a few hiccups here and there. later on in the evening, we will also see Venus conjunct the Galactic Center, so job and romance and artsy themes will be very prominent on this day. Fitting, as on my personal front, my last day at my current job is this Friday. Don't really want to leave, but not being given the choice as I write this. Probably more time for me to expand Phoenixia Astrology more, so stay tuned! Anyways, as we go deeper into the night, Uranus and Pallas sextile the Moon, giving us some sudden flashes of insight, though do be careful as Sedna will square off against the Moon about the same time.
Saturday starts us off with Venus, then Pholus, and then Saturn sextile the Moon. This should make for a relaxing morning at least, and the Sun and Moon make a sextile even later on. We really should take advantage of Saturday and just rest a bit, catch our breath, and maybe just chill out. Moon conjuncts Nessus later on in the evening, so maybe a good time to clear the air about some things that have been bothering you. Not much to say about Saturday, and maybe that's a good thing.
Sunday is a bit more energetic with Mars trining the Moon overnight. Some active dreams are likely to come to the forefront, especially as the Moon is conjunct Neptune throughout much of this trine. Later on in the day we'll see Mercury square the Moon, so watch how you talk to others very well, watch your messages, and look out for crazy drivers on the road. Later on in the evening, Pluto sextile the Moon should relax some of the more uneasy feelings a bit, and Vesta trine Moon about the same time will also prove to be beneficial. Maybe a good time to reflect on what is important, what we hold dear. As it's Christmas Eve, that will be a very good time to gather with family if you're so inclined. Venus conjunct Saturn as we cross into Christmas Day may act as a bit of a damper on some festive merrymaking, or maybe regulate it to be a bit more stable.
There you have it. A ton of major energy shifts this week, and I would with this much shifting around going on, and as prominent as Galactic Center is as well, it's going to be a life-changing week. Make the most of it, and move on from the past. We have work to do, so get to it.
After a few intense weeks, we seem to have a little bit of a respite this week around. It's not all easy travels, but it's a little bit of a breather than what we've been getting. Just to keep in mind, there's some important events going on this week outside of the astrology, from what I'm aware of. Definitely note Thursday for the FCC's Net Neutrality vote. How this is issue is handled may affect Phoenixia Astrology as a whole, especially my ability to communicate with all of you effectively. That said, diving in.
Monday starts off with a full bag of tricks, with Jupiter sextile Lucifer for a little mitigation on the pride issues front. We also have Mercury retrograde square Chiron to start the week off too, so do be aware of how you're coming across to others, and how you're communicating that which is bothering you. Also a good chance of some travel mishaps, so keep a close watch on the other drivers. Moon semisextile Mars and trine Kaali also ups some of the intensity, though the trine to Kaali should allow us to navigate some of the problems a bit better. Finally, we also start off with Venus square Neptune tightly, so there's a good chance we're going to see some absurdities in "fuzzy logic" when it comes to the workday. As the day progresses, there could be a little bit of reaping what we sow with asteroid Karma squaring the Nodes. Further on into the late afternoon and early evening we'll see Mercury trine Eris, so maybe a little bit of calming some of the chaos that's going on will be on the agenda. Into the night the Moon will cross fixed star Algorab, so try to avoid arguments where you can with loved ones, and it may be a good time to meditate and cool things down. We end Monday with Moon sextiling Venus, which may help dream visions and maybe a nightcap with a loved one.
Tuesday could yield some intresting events as we have Jupiter conjunct Vesta, so we can expect some developments in the judicial front. Further on into the day we see the Moon sextile the North Node, a nice boost for getting some tasks done as we'll likely be feeling a little bit better about some ills. Exercise caution though as we'll also be having the Moon square off against Pluto, so try not to get into any fights with superiors or subordinates, and try to keep a calm, level head on the commute as tempers are likely to be flaring. The Moon does, of course, have more good news to offset this a little as it will also sextile the Sun and Mercury (both of which are conjunct). This combination should give us an edge in taking care of some sticky situations and clear our heads just a little. Going into late evening Pacific Time, we'll see the Moon quincunx Chiron as the Moon also crosses Spica. We might be feeling a bit wounded with something else bothering us, but the star in Libra should shine a bit more positively and possibly give us a little healing by catharsis. Shortly afterwards, the Moon opposes Uranus retrograde, and Pallas also opposes the moon a little bit later, so be ready for anything as you prepare for a good night's sleep.
Wednesday ramps things up a bit with the Moon crossing into Scorpio, exposing some of our darker impulses throughout the day. Moon square Juno in the early hours could make for a tense breakfast with the family. Moon sextile Saturn, however, should mitigate things just slightly and give us a little bit of an inspiration as to how to deal with a work problem, or at the very least smooth over road rage a bit on the commute. Do be aware as you arrive to your classes or your job in the morning (Pacific Time) as Mars square Kaali could make for some sudden headaches. The moon will also be conjuncting Mars close to the same time as well, giving us a boost of energy, but again, try to maintain some calm while you blow through some tasks that need to be done. Later on in the day, Moon trine Nessus might be useful to spring us out of a trap, possibly of our own making, so if you've been feeling a bit obsessive about someone or something, that should abate for a short moment. Lastly, into the night, Moon conjunct Dejanira may bring forth some insights as to our vulnerabilities, and how to overcome them.
Thursday is a big day, as this is the day of the FCC Net Neutrality Vote. Will the commissioner's actually vote wisely? Let's see... Moon trine Neptune should cut through some of the fog a little, and the North Node trine Venus should be beneficial for events related to jobs, careers, and what we desire. We also have the Sun trining Eris retrograde, which should bring some order to the chaos. We do get Moon conjunct Jupiter about the time I expect the vote to take place as well, which will bring forth the notions of law and order and how we feel about them. It's shortly after this time that Destinn retrograde opposes the Moon, so we may be feeling a bit uneasy about where the events of the day go. We also get Moon conjunct Vesta, again, dealing with law and wisdom. Into the afternoon the Moon squares the Nodes, which will grant us some challenges to get through the rest of the day, and still later on Ceres will square the Moon at the same time the Moon sextiles Pluto. Could be something home-related we need to deal with, but we can probably deal with it in a constructive manner. Could be rearranging something, or taking out some trash (never a bad thing to do). Based on Thursday's forecast, and the fact they're doing this entire FCC vote at the heart of Mercury Retrograde, we may yet be able to preserve the open Internet. Somehow. Based on this, we may see a last-second vote of sanity. But I am not 100% certain.
Friday will be a bit more of an easier day with the Moon trining Chiron early on, helping us get past old wounds and maybe even helping us heal past them. We'll also have Venus conjunct Mercury retrograde, so there is a good chance of being able to salvage a job or repair something of value to us during this time (Mercury retrogrades are good times for repair and review, after all). Uranus quincunx the Moon later on suggests a little volatility and some strange occurences, so keep alert. Overnight, the Moon will be crossing over into Sagittarius which will heat things up and add a little bit of spontaniety to the night's events. Sun square Chiron could bring to light some issues we've been avoiding for fear of bruising our own egos.
Saturday will give us the Moon tearing through Sagittarius, so be ready for anything to happen. Not in a bad way, I would hope, but people could be a little hot from the events of the previous night. Mars semisextile Moon early one while the Moon squares Nessus symbolizes the potential for some argumentativeness, so try to keep this in mind. We'll also have a trine to Uranus from the Sun, allowing us to make greater use of the day's spontaneity. Mars trine Nessus by mid-afternoon (Pacific Time) should mitigate some of the earlier tensions, and allow us to take action to break past old obsessions slightly. Into the evening, the Moon squares Neptune, so do be alert if you decide to go partying into this evening as intoxicants could be more potent than you bargain for. Mercury trine North Node should end the day with a little bit of ease when travelling and speaking with others, but do watch yourself as Mercury still is retrograde at this point.
Sunday ends the week with a conjunction between Moon and Mercury to start coming in from Saturday night, so there could be some fun travels overnight. As midday approaches, I see Moon conjuncts Venus. If you have some last-minute Christmas shopping to do, this is a good time to go out and do it! Eris trine Moon a little later on will also help a bit with the chaos, and might even spark some good holiday cheer out of the blue. Just be alert for Moon square Chiron as we approach the evening, and a possibility of feeling emotionally exhasted from the earlier events of the day could rear its head about then. Overnight, the New Moon in Sagittarius will occur, ushering in a new lunar cycle to end the calendar year on. It'll be conjunct Galactic Center as well, so this Lunar Cycle is going to start with a bang to begin the new week after Sunday!
So there you have it... a calm before an upcoming storm, and some easier-to-deal-with aspects to go throughout most of this week, and ending on a fiery note with the New Moon on Galactic Center. Whatever loose ends you have to finish things off, this is the week to do it. I haven't looked ahead to next week yet, and to be honest, the December monthly forecast won't be happening as of this point as I was not able to get to it this time. I'll be focusing my efforts more on seeing what yearly forecast I can come up with for 2018 instead, and besides, December is almost half over by this point. At any rate, keep going, keep your chin up, and keep alert.
This one's going to be a quickie because I've been up way too late preparing for a possible interview this week. As my current job is winding down, and I'm on the hunt for another one, regrettably some brushing up on programming skills has taken priority. As part of the brush-up, however, I'm working on something that will allow me to better forecast for you readers. Also, the monthly forecast, as a side-effect of my day-to-day concerns, has been delayed for another day, perhaps two. We'll see where I'm at. Jumping in.
Monday starts us off with Dejanira trine Nessus, Jupiter trine Neptune, and Pallas retrograde sextile Sedna retrograde, and Pholus conjunct Saturn at their tightest points. Likley overnight, we've been dealing with some hopes that things are improving, but at the same time there's a very large caution about getting too mesmerized with some of the larger dream visions that may be coming our way today. Or perhaps we've overindulged in an all-nighter (guilty). Keep track of epiphanies that come, but don't get too far out of the way. Later on in the day, Moon makes a square to Chiron retrograde, which is all but motionless itself right now, and considering we've just come off of a full moon in Gemini, there are going to be some deep concerns with how we've been healing ourselves lately. It's not all bad though, as Uranus sextile the Moon can give us some impetus to come to some sudden solutions regarding a few problems, and Moon trine Mars a little later will also be a big help. Just watch out even later on in the day when Moon opposes the tight conjunction between Pholus, Saturn, and Mercury retrograde. While you're sorting out solutions, it's easy to get sidetracked by some critical business that consumes your time. Another thing to watch out for is hyperobsessions, which will peak around 3PM PST with Venus square Nessus. Into the night we get a potentially awkward respite when the Moon quincunxes Venus, yet trines Dejanira. Might be the potential for a lover's spat, but it'll pass.
Tuesday we have an early grand trine between the Moon in its home sign of Cancer, Jupiter in Scorpio, and Neptune in its home sign of Pisces. Not to mention the moon will also be crossing the dog star, Sirius. This is an excellent day to take advantage of some visionary impulses you've been having, and definitely write down or notate solutions that come to you! You may not be able to act on them quite yet with Saturn and Mercury retrograde bearing down on all of us, or... if you're repairing or revisiting something, perhaps you can! (Mercury retrograde does have some advantages). Harness what you can early on, for the Moon will oppose Pluto once it's done doing it's easy dance with Jupiter and Neptune. In fact, seeing this, the danger is going to be in letting the opportunity slip away, and not taking advantage, which could leave you feeling set up for a fall later. May be the time to get rid of something that no longer makes you feel all that great about yourself too, but again, make absolutely certain, as knee-jerk reactions could leave us in a bit of pain.
Wednesday gets a bit rough as we get Eris squaring the Moon, and at the same time Moon quincunx Apophis. I'd say be careful on the morning commute this day. Moon does trine Chiron a little later, and that'll help us feel a little bit better about goings on, and we may be able to get started on some major healing as Chiron will now have turned direct by this point! If you've figured out what you need to do to get back on track and past the hurts you've endured, now's the time to start setting it in motion. For the most part, if it's repair. Again, Mercury retrograde. Saturn's tightest conjunction to Mercury retrograde soon happens after that trine, and this is defintely a warning to watch how you come across to others. Uranus retrograde square the Mooon at the same time defintely makes saying the wrong thing a high probability, so listen very carefully before you respond to any messages or emails today. In fact, I'd delay answering a few things if at all possible. Depending on your situation, you may not be able to take that time. A little later on in the morning, we'll also ahve the Moon squaring Mars, right before the Moon enters fiery Leo no less. Honestly, if you're working from home today, that may be for the best. Don't get into fights, as it's going to be easy to do in the wrong circumstances with that Moon/Mars/Uranus T-Square. Fortunately, the Moon won't stay in that position for long. But it will also be quincunx Pholus-Saturn-Mercury at the same time so... really, channel this energy into getting important tasks done. And double-check your work. I'd also recommend proper rest the night before as a precaution. Later on, we'll have Mars sextile Saturn, so we should be able to mitigate some of the harsher energies and relax a little bit later on. Overnight, Moon will quincunx Nessus and square Dejanira, so try not to snore too loudly next to your loved ones. Fortunately, some of us will be asleep by the time that aspect pattern hits, but it could lead to some interesting dreams. Take note.
Thursday the Moon trines Venus overnight, and then we get some action as we start the morning commute with Moon quincunx Neptune. Some people are going to be in a fog, so watch yourself on the highways. Moon will also be squaring Jupiter, so there is the possiblity of feeling that we're not gaining enough, whether it be in the job or getting enough answers from a higher power. A bit of a testing of faith, as it were. Still later on in the afternoon (on the U.S. West Coast), the Moon will trine the Sun and conjunct the North Node, which will be useful for a nice burst of energy and help us feel a little bit better about some things happening. Perhaps a moment where some decisions even happen in your favor, or you make some favorable decisions yourself. Into the night, Mercury retrograde makes its tightest link to Galactic Center, so definitely be on the lookout for wayward messages and epiphanies that might not make sense at the moment. Don't forget about them if you can, because those may come in handy later.
Friday we get the Moon trine Eris before it leaves Leo, and a little later on Moon will also trine Uranus... an added boost to our step may be what we need to take advantage of some rapidly developing situations, and we could benefit from this easier aspect pattern. Still later on, Moon will trine both Apophis and Mercury, so we may be able to finish off a decisive message or task, or maybe there's a bit of repair work we do and we finally ditch a troublesome component. Still later on, the moon trines Saturn as well, further boosting some of the good feelings, and this will be right before Moon finally conjuncts the fixed star Regulus, and sextiles Mars. Mars is also careening towards Scorpio-Land by this point, one of the signs it rules (the other being Aries), so we're going to have some dramatic shifts, and if I dare say, this could be one intense date night for lovers out there. I am noticing the beginnings of a Venus/Neptune square, so do be aware of the possiblity of things being too good to be true. I will have to emphasize that just a bit when Moon finally opposes Nessus before Midnight PST.
Saturnday could be a bit rough, and hopefully you've watched out for hangovers the night before. Venus does cross the fixed star Antares, which will add a bit of fiery energy to some passions. You're going to definitely want to note this on Saturday, as Venus will be at the apex of a T-Square involving it, Neptune, and the Moon. Fortunately, the Moon will move on from this pattern within hours, so the highly-tense energies of this configuration should be relatively short-lived. Long story short, watch out for buyer's remorse, unclear intentions, and some major suspicions during that T-Square, whhich should mitigate by late evening. Moon will sextile Jupiter a little later on, so that will be a welcome energy to deal with. Even later on, moon trine Pluto will add a bit of spark to the evening, and maybe some major pleasantries can get underway.
Sunday we'll have the Third Quarter Moon about the same time Uranus trines Mercury, both retrograde. Take note of any dream visions going into Sunday, as I'm certain there will be some messages from beyond or from your subconscious you may want to take note of. Defintely watch your step, as we'll have another batch of T-Square action, this time with Moon opposing Chiron and apexing at Mercury. Defintely watch what you say a bit, and that T-Square is also going to invove Saturn. Very easy to get into some unneccesary arguments and troubles on Sunday, so much so that going to work the following Monday may be a welcome respite. Honestly, Sunday may be the least relaxing day of the week just for the expectation of weekend relaxation alone, and the discord in the sky. Oh, we may also want to note that the Moon will cross into airy Libra by the day's end, so we may be weighing our options heavily depending on how the rest of the day goes.
So there you have it. A bit of a rough start to the week, which gets a bit easier as the week goes, a potentially fun night for the weekend, and then the Sunday hangover, as we're dealing with back to back T-Squares between Saturday and Sunday. Take advantage of the humpday-to-weekend period, as that's most likely when the best of news is going to hit. As for Sunday, I would not want to be an NFL player. Lots of potential for injury I think, so if you're one of the players, defintely take care of yourself on the field Sunday! Ok, I've got to try to get a small catnap before work, so wish me luck.
It's about that time again, the end of the calendar month. Hope everyone's Thanksgiving was a good one! This is going to have to be another quick one, as I was basically working my main job over the weekend (and got absolutely nowhere... frustrating when you troubleshoot something for hours on end, only to realize one simple checkbox is all it took. Mercury pre-retro shadow effect? Maybe). Anyways, rather than me writing entirely in parentheticals, let's just dive into this.
To warn you about this entire week, Saturn is parking its strict, disciplinarian ass on Galactic Center; Chiron is slowing down for it's station direct soon; Mercury slowing down and turning retrograde by the end of the week; Mercury and Saturn connect in conjunction all week, while at the same time squaring that slowing-down Chiron. If you haven't identified what you need to change in your life to move forward, have no fear! This week will make it abundantly clear.
Monday overnight, we start off with Moon square Apophis. Believe me, when I tell you I felt like destroying something, I mean it (and that's about actually when I discovered I just needed the simple checkbox). Mercury semisextile Kaali also amplifies the technology impact just subtly around the same time as the Apophis/Moon Square. Further on overnight into the morning, we have an awkward quincunx between Uranus retrograde and Venus. Don't be too surprised if you got jostled from your sleep by your partner suddenly getting up to do something (or perhaps you woke your partner up). If alone, you may have had some sort of dream vision of a romantic partner, or perhaps dreaming of work?
As we start the workday on Monday, Mercury crosses Galactic Center at its tightest before the retrograde, and it will be tight throughout the entire workday. Do not be surprised if important messages start bombarding you immediately upon getting to work, regardless of what time you actually work on Monday. Off work Monday? You might get called in. We then move into a tight sextile between the Moon and Pluto a couple hours later, and this might serve to give us some insight as to how to get through or around a particular problem. The moon will quincunx the North Node around this time as well, so don't be surprised if the solution to the particular problem isn't so popular with yourself. It could even be something so simple you don't understand how you could have missed it. As the workday closes, Mars square Juno at the same time Mars quincunxs the Moon could lead to some awkward or tense conversations with your partner, be it business or personal. Eris squares Juno around the same time as well, so do be very careful with your words. As we hit the nighttime hours, Mercury conjunct Saturn and Moon conjunct Chiron retrograde could reopen some old wounds you thought you closed. I would honestly recommend watching every message you send and every word you say to others all throughout Monday.
Tuesday is a bit more of a mixed bag. First of all, Moon enters Aries, so tempers and rough feelings are going to be pretty likely, as well as a feeling that you need to get stuff done. Before it crosses into Aries, Moon will semisextile Uranus, and this could trigger some pretty unusual dreams, especially as asteroid Hekate trines the Sun tightly at the same time. Pay close attention to those dreams overnight going into Tuesday morning. Soon afterwards, Venus and Moon make a flowing trine, so there could be some overnight... um, amorous feelings going on. Try not to wake the neighbors with that or stubbing your toe in the dark in general, as a few hours later, the Moon will square Mercury, Saturn, and Pholus all at the same time. (Those three are conjunct, so there's no surprise there). And, Moon will also be conjunct fixed star Scheat in time for the morning commute. Scheat represents... well, what it sounds like (in English anyways). It's particularly associated with watery accidents and possibly drug overdoses. Take it a little easy on the coffee if you need to until you get to the office, and watch out on the way to work if it's raining.
A bit later on in the day Tuesday, we've got some rough quincunx action between Pallas and the Moon, so let's be clear with everyone you're working with in any meetings, as, for example, you could have an awkward dealing with the legal department, or maybe some workplace policy question could come into focus. Later on, we've got a flowing trine between the Sun and Moon going into the nighttime hours, so hopefully you'll have some pleasant dreams.
Wednesday early on in the morning, Venus crosses a semisextile with Saturn, potentially triggering a late night discussion with a significant other. Moon quincunx Jupiter, Moon semisextile Neptune, and Moon quincunx Karma in rapid transition leads to more questions than answers overnight. Maybe the dream state will remain pleasant enough yet informative enough to yield some sort of answer? Around mid-day, Moon trines Apophis, so there might be some progress in reversing some of the destructive impulses at the beginning of this weekly cycle. There's actually a good chance of this, as Mars will make its tightest conjunction to fixed star Spica as well, which cools the fire just a little and is usually a fortunate star. This can be a great time near the end of the work day to make that final drive towards completing that project. Just don't go overboard as the Moon will square Pluto at the same time, thus leading to some frayed nerves slightly. Moon does trine the North Node at the same time as well, so maybe that frayed nerve is pointing out what you need to mend.
Thursday starts off overnight with Mars quincunx Chiron retrograde, so again, watch your step in the dark. Eris and Moon make a tight conjunction overnight as well, so there could be some really strange dreams overnight. Maybe some answers, albeit a bit disorienting. Waking up we'll have the Moon and Mars opposing one another while the Moon conjuncts Uranus at the same time, so... quite honestly, take it easy on the morning commute if at all possible. Or maybe you work from home on Thursday? At any rate, there could be some backlash so do be careful. Don't expect things to go normally. As we start the workday hours post-commute, Moon does semisextile Sedna (itself retrograde and still with Algol...) and squares Kaali, but also trines Pholus-Saturn-Mercury close to Galactic Center, while at the same time quincunxing Venus! Ok, got all that? Basically, for a brief point during midday, there could be some chance of self-sabotage without meaning too, and it'd be easy to get flustered, but there's a chance you can stabilize it and self-correct. Now, whether anyone at work or your significant other (or potential suitor if you're single and looking) notices before you make the recovery, well, that may depend entirely on where any of this falls compared to your own natal chart, your general mood, and what you make of this conglomoration of aspects. As the workday ends, Moon will make an opposition to Dejanira, so do watch yourself and make sure some unscrupulous heathens don't take advantage of you. Be especially watchful of this as Dejanira is in Scorpio right now, and the moon transiting Taurus at this time should make stabilizing the emotion a little bit easier, but maybe not as much as you'd like. You may be able to reject with confidence (just don't victimize the oppressor too much lest you become them) as the Moon also sextiles Nessus at the same time, and the Sun does make a semisextile to asteroid Lucifer. It'd be easy to be really condescending Thursday night if out on the town, so cool it. Moon square Hekate retrograde may manifest some really intense dreams overnight.
Friday starts off with a bang with a Mars opposition to Uranus retrograde and a Moon quincunx to the Sun. Expect a bit of crazy to start the day. The Moon also opposes Jupiter and sextiles Neptune while getting ready for the day, so this could be a day you wind up hearing some sort of job or legal decision, or perhaps we see some large impact in the news. Actually, it'll be the Friday news cycle: That's going to be a given. As we approach the end of the workday Friday, the Moon will make a tight conjunction to Destinn retrograde, so there is a solid chance that some inner thought regarding your greater destiny will manifest itself then. Probably while daydreaming or spacing out a little. Don't be too worried, it's Friday, you're usually allowed this. Anyways, Sun will be making it's strongest conjunction this year to fixed star Antares around this time as well. Road rage could be amplified, or there could be some really irate shoppers somewhere out and about, so try not to get caught up in season's beatings. Later on going into the evening, the Moon will square both Ceres and the North Node (both of those conjunct), so try not to get into any major fights at dinner. This would actually be a good night to spend the night in, as there's going to be a lot of crazy if you go out. The Moon trining Pluto (while quincunxing Apophis) would be a very nice time to just chill, and maybe, if you really must bring an end to something, just take it out on some baddies in a game online or... actually, given how online play can be, might be a good night to give that story mode in that new game you got a go, right?
Saturday starts out with the tightest conjunction between Ceres and the North Node, so honestly, it really is a good home night for Friday night into Saturday morning. The Moon soon sextiles Chiron retrograde and trines Juno, so it could be good night to have that good talk with your partner, or maybe a friend or even a stranger (make sure they can be trusted, though. Trust your gut). Now, as Saturday morning begins, Moon crosses Sedna and Algol, so make sure you don't wake up sick or finding out you put on the beer goggles the night before (you did stay in the night before like I suggested, right?!)... Honestly, lots of awkward walks and Ubers home could be happening as the Moon will also quincunx Pholus abnd Saturn (both around Galactic Center) around that time as well, and then the Moon crosses into airy, mutable Gemini, so your feelings are going to be going between one place and the other this whole day. As the day progresses, the Moon will also quincunx Mercury, so it's really easy to say something that's going to ruffle some feathers, especially as Mercury turns retrograde right before the night ends (or overnight if you're on the East Coast or Europe). Hopefully you got all your new tasks started and finished before this point, but don't be too surprised if you revisit a few things later on. Moving on. As the evening progresses, we should also note a Moon square Nessus, so... really, this is not a good time to pull a "my way or the highway" stunt. If someone says give them space and lay off, tonight you lay the hell off. And if I have to emphasize that more, Mars makes an opposition to Pallas retrograde. Don't get yourself arrested over stupid shit, as Pallas can represent justice from the vibe I'm picking up about this right now, and retrograde? Directed inwards or towards yourself.
Sunday is basically a capstone on the end of the week, and we start off early on in the morining with a Sun square to Neptune, which is now direct! Some of us will find that hangovers are really not that fun this Sunday. The Moon crossing Aldeberan is another indicator that, should you have gotten through this week without having picked any fights, you can breath a sigh of relief. Jupiter semisxtile the Sun during the morning hours is also an indication that maybe talking to that higher power you talk to on occassion might be a good idea (or perhaps some quiet reading and reflection if you're not into that). We do have a Full Moon in Gemini during the morning as well, while at the same time the Moon makes that quincunx to Jupiter. Morning confession (if you participate in that) could be... a bit entertaining for the priests this day. As the day proceeds, Dejanira will trine Nessus, which should bring a little bit of respite from some troubled relationships (or perhaps provide an opportunity for escape, but remember it's Mercury Retrograde if this is the path you're on, so if this is you, you must steel your resolve lest you rebound back into their arms later. I'm not sure who I'm talking to about this but someone out there needed to see that). Saturn and Pholus make their tightest conjunction during the final hours of Sunday (Pacific Time), so it may be a good time to just put the bottle down, or otherwise not indulge in guilty pleasures going into the following Monday morning.
So there you have it. A crazy, crazy, week, and a lot of potential for trouble. It's also the dawn of Mercury Retrograde by the end of the week, so if you thought things were insane before this week started, it's going to ratchet up a few notches by the end of this week. There's some potential for some gains and some progress, but you've got to move fast and move judiciously. I can make no promises regarding how things will turn out if you get careless. And let's just not pick any fights. It'd be a good time to take up meditation this week or something, to be brutally honest. Anything to calm you down. Maybe even put down the latte if you need to. I'm going to leave off here. Be careful out there this week.
Well, we're getting ready for another week, and it's going to be an interesting one for sure. As it's a holiday weekend here in the United States, I might have a little more time to write some more articles later on in the week. I'll have to make this one quick yet again, as I got a little too carried away on a programming project. That said, it's going to be a big week overall.
Monday is of course at extreme intensity as we still have that tight Mars square Pluto aspect throughout much of the day, and it'll wane over the next few days. And not a moment too soon, as this is just not the kindest energy, especially with Moon square Chiron retrograde at the same time at noon PST (8PM UTC). The potential for emotional outbursts and blowups is quite high, so you may want to harness the mitigating energies of Moon trine Uranus retrograde to stabilize the unpredictable emotions, and Venus sextile Pluto could potentially sweeten things over if you do it just right. Asteroid Lucifer in a tight sextile to Nessus points to humility as a possible solution to some conflicts that may arise during the day. As asteroid Apophis squares Nessus, I'd strongly recommend not stoking the fires of ego-centered arguments or actions today. Mars square Pluto and Moon square Chiron alone would signal this, but these asteroid combinations compound it. With Pallas retrograde opposing Dejanira today as well, expect more scandals to break as skeletons from the past come pouring out of closets. Karma conjunct Jupiter very tight (almost within 1 minute of a degree orb) will amplify this tendency too. And... karma finally came in one notable example as I write this: Charles Manson, the mastermind behind the Manson Family murders, finally kicked off on Sunday. What is sown shall be reaped is the message of Karma on Jupiter. It cannot be understated that Saturn conjunct Galactic Center is intensifying throughout this week, and as of Monday is at less than half a degree orb (making the conjunction very powerful). Again, the scythe is swinging. Keep your head down and don't make waves unnecessarily today.
Tuesday could be a mixed bag, and could be intense in ways we don't really care for when it comes to jobs and romance. Why? Venus square the Nodes will be a solid trigger for fated events when it comes to what we value and hold dear, meaning shakeups at work and shakeups with romantic partners are likely. As we also have Destinn retrograde opposing Venus very tightly on the same day and for all intents and purposes forming a Grand Cross with the Nodes, how do I put this? If there's been a crisis brewing at your job (like, for instance, questionable behaviors and ethics), or a series of troubles in a romantic relationship (like someone growing more distant over time), it is likely that arrangements that are to end may end, or the path to those endings may be set in motion. Mars semisextile Venus alone could also be a trigger, so it is likely to start with either an argument with the spouse, or in the office it could be an uncomfortable closed-door meeting with your supervisor (or subordinate if you're the manager/owner). Now, Pluto does sextile Venus, but it's also still squaring Mars. Best to keep your cool if at all possible. We should also note the energy shift as the sun is on the last degree of Scorpio and is about to cross over into fiery, mutable Sagittarius on Wednesday. This is where things get to be fun. Kaali sextile Chiron retrograde could amplify the healing that will be done after the wounding, and it could be a time people just need to chill... on their own.
Wednesday could be a hotbed of chaos right before the holidays, as around noontime on the Pacific Coast here, we've got Moon conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, and both will quincunx the North Node tightly at the same time. This could be a really strange day with this combination, so don't take anything for granted, and try to avoid abrasive people if at all possible. Mercury also trines Eris retrograde, so there could be some talk or travel that has to be done that may not make you feel as uneasy as you would otherwise think. At least, the trine should mitigate that a good deal. The sun also crosses over into Sagittarius, so this could be a time where people just go off and do their own things. It's not uncommon for people to go out and hang with friends at a bar or something the night before Thanksgiving, when people in the U.S. tend to be gathering with family and arguing over whoever the best football team is at the dinner table. At least, most years. Not sure about this year. Anyways, with Saturn and Pholus both with Galactic Center strongly, and Saturn also within a degree of conjuncting Pholus itself, I can't stress this enough: don't drink and drive. Especially not now. This isn't the time to tempt fate. Trust me, there's too many crazy energies to even think of risking it. (Shouldn't be doing that anyways!)
Thursday, well, what to say about Thanksgiving Day (U.S.)? Well, the moon will cross over into Aquarius around midday (PST), and some people will already be chowing down on turkey and ham and tofurkey by this point. I could potentially see some awkwardness at the table as Saturn tightens its conjunction to Galactic Center at this point. Dejanira square Moon will also be a bit of a wet blanket, and could make for other awkward conversations. Frankly, discussing politics and religion around the dinner table this year, while not the best move in general given the nature of family divisions, honestly, if you want peace and harmony, these energies are really not good for it this year. And while Mars is a bit further off in its square to Pluto, that square is still there, and Mars is still semisextile Venus as well. The triggering aspect is still in play. You know, there are some stores that will be opening Thanksgiving night. I feel for you people working there. (Frankly, I think people should have the damn day off to be away from the merciless mobs. Black Friday apparently wasn't enough for some places... but enough of my soapbox ranting).
Friday... ah, Black Friday. The busiest shopping holiday of the year in the United States. Otherwise known as "oh my god I want to go home" among the rank and file in the retail industry. How will this day play out? Well... Uranus is strengthening a semisextile to Chiron, both are retrograde, so we're likely nursing some wounds (and probably indigestion from the day before if you overindulged)... Uranus retro is still trine Mercury as well, so maybe some of those family squabbles will diminish a bit, maybe a little too much wine at the dinner table was to blame? Or maybe some errant interception in the football game? Regardless, some ruffled feathers can be smoothed over a little on Friday. But do watch your step, as Mars is beginning to square Juno, leading to a possibility of some strife in relationships. Vesta trine Nessus is tight on Friday as well, so there's a good possibility of some forgiveness for some minor transgressions this day as well. Maybe mea culpas for the more major transgressions? But will the apologies be accepted, if those are flying? Well, Moon will trine Mars later on in the evening, so maybe a good night to calm things down with a good movie. I am also noticing asteroid Apophis crosses Antares on Friday. Be aware of your surroundings. Honestly, if you're braving Black Friday shopping crowds, I'd recommend body armor in general. Especially with that aspect. Mercury squaring Chiron could also lead to some rough words while shopping. Season's beatings.
Saturday is a bit of an aftermath day, but still one we should be watchful of. Destinn trine Pluto is a welcome aspect, so something that hasn't been good for us going away might be a welcome change of pace this day. Uranus trine Mercury I think will amplify this a bit, but do note that Uranus also squares Kaali (an amplifier of sorts), so there could be some crazy events that happen out of the blue today. But it should work out in the end, so don't stress it too much. Be a little more forgiving of loved ones through the day when Moon squares Venus in the middle of the day, and consider their feelings (while not giving up your self-respect), as Sun will also be squaring Nessus today as well. Keep your obsessions in check! Apophis (still on Antares) squaring Neptune retrograde could signal an event that destroys a piece of our worldview, something that shakes our faith or sours a dream we've had for awhile. Perhaps that dream wasn't a good one to follow, or maybe there's a reality check that you come across that you need to consider. Saturn is beginning to cross over Galactic Center after being exact on Friday, and will now be separating, but do take into account the lessons Saturn is teaching you. Moon semisextile Chiron will also be an influence that may lead to us feeling that there's something we need to do to move on from a situation that we haven't been feeling right about. Honestly, a lot of Saturday, now that I look at it, has to deal with us finally coming to accept that something is not working and it's time to make the change to get past this. Make the change and note what has to go so you're not bogged down by it any longer.
Sunday closes out the week with a little bit of crazy. Mars is beginning to oppose Uranus, so let's try not to behead the kindly lady that just took the last parking space at church, OK? Mercury trine Uranus should smooth over some sudden arguments, though. Venus trine Chiron will also be very helpful in helping us get past some previous issues that may have been holding us back, and may help in recharging our batteries for the coming work week. Do be careful to temper the harsh words, as we'll still have Sun square Nessus. Mercury quincunx Sedna retrograde on Algol further reiterates this, though a trine from Kaali to Sedna may calm things down a bit. Be aware of anything that feels off during the daytime as well, as asteroid Hekate (an occult asteroid) will be quincunxed by the Moon pretty strongly as well, but this should again be tempered by the Moon's trine to Vesta, which can help ward off some unwelcome intruders from the beyond. Finally, Apophis still squares Neptune, so do be wary of destructive thoughts entering your head. Make sure those nasty thoughts of hurting yourself or others are actually coming from yourself. (A good idea is to see if any voice in your head thinking about causing some damage actually sounds like you). Yes, I went a bit esoteric on this one, but given those few aspects, I think it's worth mentioning and taking into consideration.
So there you have it. A very powerhouse week, with potential for chaos and also potential for holiday cheer. Which path will you choose? If your path involves walking away form blood-kin for your own sanity, hey, sometimes you gotta take a little time to yourself. I would strongly recommend you keep a close watch on frayed nerves as much as possible this week, and remember that it can get better. Avoid the traps that can make things worse, and I think we'll all be alright somehow. And finally... no, you do not need a flamethrower to go holiday deal-hunting, as satisfying as it would be to torch a few plastic reindeer. Cheers.
Well, the good news is I'm feeling better from last week. And man, Saturn square Chiron retrograde definitely showed between the pinkeye I had last weekend, and the food poisoning I caught from Thursday the 9th into Friday the 10th. Not fun times. Let's just say it's a hard-learned lesson in how I need to watch what I eat more. Ironically, I think I caught both ailments from the same place (and I'm a regular there. ...well, was a regular. Not for awhile. Eh, I gotta drop pounds anyways). Anyways, as I'm a programmer by trade, I'm experimenting with making a tool to help me see aspects a bit more clearly. I think this is going to help me bring the stars to all of you a little bit better in the long run, so let's see how helpful this will be!
We should note that Uranus retrograde will strongly semisextile Sedna retrograde (itself on unfortunate fixed star Algol) all week long. As this aspect has been very strong over the last month or so, it is no surprise we have seen so many people undone by the Hollywood and politician sex scandals over the last few weeks. We will continue to see people that have been looked up to for so long falling and enduring accusations, both legitimate and false (There is that possibility in a minority of cases). I will be doing an article soon on Sedna and Algol, and let's be honest: Sedna is going to be on Algol for ... a while. Anyways, be very aware of betrayed trust for the foreseeable future, especially by males and male-minded individuals and institutions. As an aside, I am figuring the Semisextile aspect to be a trigger aspect, and with Uranus retro in this aspect with Sedna, betrayal will bring sudden changes. And these are, as we have seen, hidden changes. Again, more news is coming out this week. I guarantee it. As for who else to be implicated in affairs? This is a global aspect: It could be anyone. (On a lighter note, I have seen joke headlines about more people accusing Tom Hanks of being a nice guy, and that's definitely far from the worst thing to be accused of! (from what I know, he's a class act, but let's not get all our hopes up!))
Monday, Uranus has some strong action for us, even though it is retrograde, with the aforementioned semisextile to Sedna, and it's also trine Saturn so we'll be able to control some of the chaos a little better. Be highly alert that you do not fall victim as Uranus retrograde also very tightly opposite asteroid Dejanira (by an orb or less than half a minute of a degree!)... what this means for us is that there is a very strong possibility that we could become victim to our own sudden changes. However, as Dejanira is sextile Saturn pretty strongly at this time as well, the taskmaster may help mitigate this somewhat by keeping discipline up. Do be warned that in the late morning hours, Moon will be squaring Saturn and quincunxing Uranus, so we may have some frustrations as we arrive at work (at least on the Pacific Coast, and early afternoon on the East Coast). In the early afternoon, Moon will also cross over into airy Libra, so this will be a time where we have a more decisive mindset in where we weigh our options, probably also stemming from the early morning Saturn square/Uranus quincunx. Also be advised that Mercury is square Neptune retrograde, so it is very easy for communications to not be very clear through much of this day. Note that very well, as Tuesday will me important regarding the messenger planet.
Jupiter conjunct Venus is also strong today on Monday, so there is a good chance that we can harness some inner fortitude and get some tasks done, as well as receive a bit of enlightenment on secrets that may have been working against us. We'll have a stronger means of dealing with the issue, though probably best to wait until the Moon crosses into Libra if possible. Also be very well advised that Mars conjuncts fixed star Algorab in Libra today, so tempers are going to be flaring. Use Jupiter and Venus's magic to insulate yourself from harm with the watery energies of the Scorpion. Sometimes you gotta get a little dirty to keep yourself clean.
Do be aware that Black Moon Lilith will also be conjunct asteroid Lucifer on Monday, and this is somewhat fitting. Beware that pride comes before a fall. Pluto also conjuncts Juno tightly, so there could be some early morning events regarding our significant others. You may want to leave the husband or wife be until they get that morning coffee, as there's a likelihood of the grumpy bear effect being in play.
Tuesday gets a bit more insane, as we now enter the pre-retrograde shadow period for Mercury's upcoming retrograde. Watch travel and communications over the next couple weeks, as things will not be as clear now. Uranus retrograde is still opposing Dejanira and trining Saturn, so expect more volatile news of more accusers. You may even find yourself being accused of something, or maybe you accuse yourself of not living up to your expectations? Self-victimization and suddenly making a change is a possibility. Again, babies and bathwater don't go to the same pile.
Asteroid Destinn (think "destiny") is retrograde, and squaring the North Node very tightly on Tuesday, so we can expect fated events to come into play. Asteroids Hekate and Karma also square. You have been above-board in your dealings with others, correct? Well, bear that in mind as the Moon will cross Algorab and Mars (and those two bodies are still close enough to be conjunct, so again, the incendiariness of this conjunction cannot be underestimated). Take many deep breaths and do not get into unnecessary arguments today! Moon will sextile Mercury pretty strongly before it hits Mars/Algorab, so there should be a little bit of mitigation there.
Wednesday, the Moon is still going through Libra, and will oppose Uranus retrograde and sextile Saturn pretty strongly (and hit Dejanira at the same time), so do keep a close watch on how you're feeling. Emotional inadequacies could bubble up to the surface, so try to focus on the task at hand. Loved ones might be able to mitigate some of the inadequacies with some unexpected action, though don't expect too much of a decisive direction with this (Mars in Libra, not its favorite spot), and I'm looking at Mars sextile Ceres around midday. Could be a good day to do some planning for home renovations (but perhaps not acting on those plans quite yet). Also, Moon will be approaching fixed star Spica today as well, and Spica's usually a positive star. It might even be a productive day at work while the Moon is on this star, or you could even get a phone call about a job offer or a book deal, if you've been working on those. And with asteroid Karma conjuncting Jupiter at the same time, if you've got someone acting as your own personal Jupiter, expect this to come to a head for good or ill. Most likely good. Maybe even a good time to write that letter to Santa (or receive a letter to pass to "Santa" from the kids!). Sun trines Chiron retrograde throughout the day as well, which will give us a welcome boost in healing ourselves from some pretty brutal internal wounds we've been nursing for awhile.
Thursday ramps up some intensity levels significantly as Moon enters Scorpio overnight. Expect some fixed drive from the scorpion energy to boost your thinking and perceptions, and possibly some focus as well, as Moon will also be crossing in conjunction to Jupiter, and then Venus later on in the afternoon. We'll also be communicating a bit better about the homefront when Ceres and Mercury form a tight trine in midday as well. (Just don't spend too much time at lunch looking at home decor ideas). Dejanira will also be forming a strong sextile to asteroid Pholus on Thursday as well, giving us a little protection and awareness against those who would take advantage of us when our defenses are down (generally by way of intoxication). This is also a time we must note that Saturn is now within orb of conjuncting Galactic Center! It's basically the center of our galaxy, as the name suggests, and with Saturn here, the heavy spiritual influence is going to be on our discipline, restrictions, what has been holding us back (especially as Chiron still squares Saturn at this point), and how we're going to apply what we've learned over the Saturn cycle of the previous year. Buckle up.
Friday brings to us some more chaotic intensity with the square from Eris to asteroid Kaali, and this is going to ratchet up the discord and chaos somewhat. Lot of people are going to be feeling edgy with that one. Saturn is also intensifying its Galactic Center conjunction, and Pholus is also conjunct this point as well! Watch the imbibing over the weekend as, well, they don't call drinks "spirits" for nothing. Mars and Mercury join up for a nice sextile, which will be quite useful in finishing off the workweek with a boost of productivity and activity. Overnight we will hit the Scorpio New Moon, which will kick off another lunar cycle to enter the holiday season with. (There will be a dedicated article about this Lunar Cycle later on in the week as of the time I write this article). Destinn retrograde trine Juno (while still squaring the North Node) might be alright for a date night with someone special. Maybe a night in would do wonders for those lucky lovers.
Saturday could be tricky as we've got that Sun opposition Sedna retrograde. Hopefully the lucky lovers I mentioned for Friday didn't have too much wine, as there could be some hangovers going into this weekend. We do also have a massive caution flag for this weekend as Mars squares Pluto, and this is a highly intense and volatile energy. We want to be very careful with this. Karma is conjunct Jupiter in Scorpio, still, and as Jupiter can also expand and blow up things, there's a good chance of some chickens coming home to roost on this crazy day. Try to keep the ego in check as asteroids Apophis (destruction) and Lucifer (pride) are also semisextile, which could trigger that pride before a fall. Lucifer is sextile Nessus (obsessions, abuse) as well, so keep your wits about you, and you might be able to avoid doing something or saying something you regret. Kaali sextile Chiron retrograde could also amplify the healing of your inner wounds (or the infliction of inner wounds) depending how this energy is used as well. Granted, it's not as strong as exact aspects to major planets and points, but it does have some bearing... especially if its hitting a personal point or planet in your own natal charts. (It's hitting a nasty asteroid in mine: Dejanira. Wonderful place for Chiron to slow down, and hopefully not as rough for me as it was when Chiron stationed direct on my IC last year. That's an article or series of articles for another day...).
Sunday, again, Eris retrograde square Kaali could bring some interesting shenanigans to those going to church today. Watch the words and actions of those behind the pulpit very carefully. Discord is everywhere, and by their fruits ye shall know them. Destinn retrograde still squares North Node and it's very tight as well. Maybe it's inevitable that some thinking has to happen, and to consider the ramifications of all the goings on. Of course, you might have a good support structure, in which case, keep that up and don't get too crazy! Mercury trines the North Node, which might be a good signal to clear the air about some things on your mind. With Apophis squaring Nessus, and Karma conjuncting Jupiter still, it may be a good idea to just keep your head down and catch up on some reading. Saturn and Pholus tighten their conjunction to Galactic Center as well, so... maybe an ideal day to talk to God, Source, Allah, or whoever you believe in. Or to just reflect on nature and the universe if you're not into any of those things/beings.
So all things considered, it's going to be quite the week. It's high energy all throughout, and there's plenty of ways to slip up, and also plenty of opportunities to build up on your successes, recover from failures, and not let yourself get too down on things. The news cycle is likely to be distressing to many in some way this week as well, so it's better to just not dwell on that and get what you need to get done done. You've got your own life to live, I've got my own life to live, and I'd rather spend mine doing something useful, such as alerting all of you as to what's coming up! Anyways, I see I have a few other articles I need to write this week, and I'm up way too late right now! So I'll bid you all adieu.
Another quick one, this time I'm sick and not feeling up to in-depth as much as usual. But I'll do what I can. Here goes.
Throughout this entire week, we will be dealing with Saturn square Chiron retrograde. The themes of discipline in dealing with inner wounds and potentially slowed healing will be a factor. Or, healing that will require stronger discipline than usual to facilitate. Saturn will also be trine Uranus this entire week as well, so we can use that to our advantage, and perhaps unconventional triggers in healing wounds will factor in as Chiron and Uranus are semisextile.
Monday, Venus is at the last degree of Libra, and about to enter Scorpio. As Venus rules Libra, this is a day where we should be focusing on finishing up some smaller and creative projects, and a good day to pay attention to loved ones. Moon will trine Libra later on in the night hours (North America), and could be a good night for romantic liaisons. Venus also sextiles Black Moon Lilith, further boosting the divine feminine and good for some sultry, lusty action.
Tuesday is intensity personified as Venus enters Scorpio, which will bring a darker, more esoteric and shadowy vibe when it comes to relationships, jobs, and things we find pleasing to the eye. In the morning (Pacific Time Zone), Moon will quincunx Mercury, so it's easy to say some harsh words at this moment. Try to take it easy with the motorist salute during your commute too. In the mid-afternoon (North America), Moon will trine Jupiter, expanding our more pleasant emotions, and bringing a little bit of peace of mind to some of our affairs. Later on in the day, there will be a loose Water Grand Trine between Moon in Cancer, Neptune in Pisces, and the Sun in Scorpio, and Moon will be kited by Pluto. Orbs aren't exact, but it's the closest thing we have, so harness your intuition on this day and see what emotionally no longer serves you, and let it go, and forge a new future for yourself.
Wednesday, we'll see a Moon trine Chiron retrograde. We'll be feeling a little better about our emotions for a while this day, and may even see an advance in healing techniques on this day. Either that or some improved healing or completion of healing. I'm hoping so, on a personal note (as I'm currently sick). Sun is also tightening in a sextile to Pluto, which will give us a good energy boost to getting tasks done and getting rid of some unneeded baggage.
Thursday could be a bit of a mixed bag with Mars quincunx Neptune retrograde. We could be feeling some doubts and indecision, and there's a good chance of some psychic static in our heads, or basically we just won't know which way is up. Sun is also strongly sextile Pluto-Juno today, so this aspect should mitigate the Mars-Neptune uncertainty a little. Don't throw out the baby with the bathwater on this day. Saturn trine Uranus retrograde is very strong on this day as well, so there's a good chance of us double-checking before we actually do throw out a baby with the bathwater. A solid trine between Mercury and Moon in midday will further insulate us against the Mars-Neptune uncertainty field. Be cautious though in the office or on the job as Moon will also square Venus and then Jupiter throughout the course of the day, so some work-related mishaps or projects going awry are a possibility. This is temporary, however.
Friday brings a strong close to the week with Moon hitting the North Node in Leo, and the Moon will later on trine Saturn, so this is a good day to feel good about things and finish up loose ends. Saturn trine Uranus retrograde tightens further, boosting our defense against unexpected and unwanted surprises for the most part. Moon does quincunx Pluto around noon Pacific Time, so do watch out for some helter-skelter emotional baggage hitting us around then. Later on in the day, however, we should be alright.
Saturday gives us the Moon entering Virgo and sextiling Venus and Jupiter throughout the day... it would be a good day to hit a flea market or yard sale if any are still going on at this late stage in the Fall season. Pluto and Juno tighten a conjunction in Capricorn as well, so if there's some household finances that need to be addressed with your spouse or partner, you may want to do that around this time.
Sunday we'll have the Moon oppose Neptune retrograde early on. Whether some epiphanies come during a church service or during dreamtime, well, it's more likely around then. Venus and Jupiter are also closing in on a conjunction which will strengthen into Monday in the following week's forecast, so this would be a good day to relax and appreciate the beauty in nature. However, considering they're both in Scorpio, make it a cautious beauty as nature can also be dangerous. Sun begins to strongly square the Nodes around this time as well, so don't let your guard down completely on this day. Mars is also sitting on fixed star Algorab on this day as well, so try not to get into a big quarrel with your loved ones, as Algorab in Libra (not to be confused with Algol, which is in Taurus), is still an incendiary star and could indicate trouble brewing. Take several deep breaths and try to relax.
So there we have it. A mixed bag throughout the week, for the most part, with a good mix of ups and downs. Sorry if this seems a bit more muted than usual, but as I said, wasn't feeling very well. I'm certain I'll be feeling better no later than Wednesday based on these aspects, though I have many personal harsh aspects hitting my chart right now too. But we'll see, as the stars can indicate the themes, but those themes can play out positively or negatively. If we can get more positivity, that's always for the best. Take care.
