June 1st – 7th

What do we need to learn? — Forecast for June 1st – 7th

 

This week’s headline items: Mercury enters its pre-Shadow phase in Cancer on Tuesday very early morning; a powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius becomes exact on Friday; and there will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday morning (for almost 5.5 hours); Thursday morning (for a little over 5.5 hours); and Saturday very early morning (for a little over 15.5 hours).

 

Before we get to this week’s forecast, one quick announcement:

If you missed my latest Forecasting Forum, but want to see how the upcoming three Eclipses (and the major shifts they bring) are impacting you personally, check out this 20-min excerpt (will be available by Sunday late evening), and/or purchase the whole 90+ min. webinar here.

Star Members: check your email for the link to the mp4-video recording and enjoy watching it! I sent it out on May 31st late at night 😉

 

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, June 1st:

Monday, the Moon remains in harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra all day. It will journey there until Tuesday early afternoon. The energy of the Libra Moon helps us be naturally courteous and diplomatic; we are more polite at this time, as we seek the approval of others.

We very much want to maintain equal, fair relationships at this time, and are therefore open to making compromises and negotiating. These next two days are a great time for mediation — but our need for peace and accompanying aversion to direct conflict could pull us to “yes” more easily than we might like.

We may also be able see both sides of the equation so well that we can’t make decisions. As best as you can, find an inner balance with this and communicate what needs to be said with grace and charm — even if it’s “No” 😉 One last quick note: this is also a great time for anything to do with visual arts.

Monday very early morning, we become more aware that we need to find a balance between two very different energies — on the one hand, taking a compassionate approach towards our personal goals, while being assertive in the world — and on the other hand, our need to connect and collaborate with others. Ask yourself: what if taking a compassionate approach towards myself actually made for more fulfilling connections with others?

Monday morning, we are invited to make some internal adjustments. We may want to connect with others, but may also need to become aware of our intuitive, more creative side. What do you feel/sense when you get really quiet? What actions are calling to you?

Monday late morning, we feel social and seek connection on a mental level. As best as you can, have stimulating conversations — and allow for collaboration.

Monday late evening, we are invited to make some more internal adjustments. We may want to connect with others, but may also need to tune into our intuitive inner voice. As you did earlier in the day, ask yourself: What do I sense when I get really quiet? Could a compassionate heart bring peace to your interactions with others?

Monday night/Tuesday very early morning, Mercury enters its pre-Shadow phase when it reaches 5.5 degrees of Cancer; this is a little over 2 weeks prior to its Retrograde phase (which starts on June 18th).

What is the Shadow phase? The period immediately before and after a planet’s Retrograde phase is referred to as the “Shadow phase”; at these times, the planet travels through the degrees of a sign that it will later pass through again during its Retrograde phase, and then once more after the Retrograde phase (for a total of three passes over the same territory.)

Mercury is usually in its shadow for about two to three weeks both before and after a retrograde.

This gives us a chance to look at our thoughts, communications, or mental exchanges connected to the past, our home, or family issues — so look carefully at whatever shows up in those areas of your life during the first Shadow phase; you will get a chance to readdress, revisit, or reorganize those thoughts and issues during the Mercury Retrograde phase (June 18th – July 12th).

If you love to write things down, I suggest that you record important conversations or thoughts in your calendar during the pre-Shadow phase.

Is your Sun-sign or Ascendant in Gemini or Virgo? Or perhaps you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 3-16 degrees of Cancer, Capricorn, Aries or Libra? If so, you are…

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, May 25th:

Monday, the Moon remains in protective, nurturing Cancer all day. It will journey there until Wednesday very early morning. With this Moon placement, we are more sensitive to what people say and therefore our feelings are more easily hurt — so be kind to yourself and others. Self-Care is key for the next two days 😉

Emotional safety is important to us as well; we like connecting to the familiar and we enjoy nurturing ourselves and others — home and family call to us, for instance. Make sure though, that your own glass is full before letting others drink from it; if you don’t, you might start to feel drained and resentful.

Monday very early morning, a somewhat challenging Mercury/Pluto aspect becomes exact at 12:26am EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from Sunday morning (May 24th) on; and it will remain strong until this Tuesday morning (May 26th). This aspect operates more on an internal level. We feel uneasy about something, awkward, and need to make a choice — so we need to develop inner awareness.

Our compulsive side may lead us down a path that evades rational understanding. Our judgments — of circumstances, ourselves, others — can be so extreme during this aspect that we can’t seem to make intelligent and consistent progress in our life for the three days it is in effect.

As best as you can, strive to be more trusting and less strict with yourself for these three days. Surrender to whatever you are experiencing right now: It is temporary 😉

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 24-26 degrees of Gemini or Capricorn? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo or Scorpio (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio).

Also, Monday very early morningan opportune Mars/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 2:48am EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week Thursday evening (May 21st) on; and it will remain strong until this Thursday. We have the opportunity to create some forward movement in our lives, especially in connection to our future visions. We may want to work on projects with like-minded people right now. Flexibility is the key to success at this time; pleasant changes may be in store — certainly unexpected ones 😉

What is one of your unique goals? How could you go after what you want, while still keeping other people’s benefit in mind? As best as you can, watch out for messages from the Universe! Remember: an opportunity is not automatically given to us: We have to “realize” it.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 6-10 degrees of  Pisces, Taurus, Cancer, or Virgo? If so, you will be more aware of this opportunity. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aries or Aquarius (Mars is the ruler of Aries; Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius).

Also, on Monday, although now retrograde, Saturn resumes its normal pace through the sky, ending its station. What came up in the last four weeks around any commitments to build something long-term? How about the need to be more realistic? How truthful are you with yourself about “where you’re at”?

The Retrograde phase is a good time to do some internal work in these areas (the retrograde ends on Sept. 29th). We now have 4.5 months to go over….

New Moon in Gemini – article

On May 22nd at 1:39pm EDT, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 2 degrees of Gemini; this marks not only the beginning of a new Moon cycle, but also the beginning of Eclipse season, which lasts until July 20th. I also recommend you watch my New Moon video on the subject, here.

Eclipses are times of uncertainty, Uranian in nature, so anything could happen between now and July 20th. It is important to remember that Eclipses open a door to the next level of our Soul’s evolution.

As best as you can, stay both grounded and flexible — and don’t jump the gun for the next 8.5 weeks — if you feel compelled to do something, do your best to simply observe the urge. The exception would be something that just happens organically, but if you are ambivalent about a possible action, better hold off until Eclipse Season ends on July 20th.

Eclipses bring major endings and beginnings. As best you can, trust that whatever is leaving is making space for something better — the more willing we are to change, the easier it will be.

That said, projects and interactions that got underway prior to Eclipse season (i.e. before May 22nd) are another matter — don’t stop your life just because it is Eclipse season 😉

I will also talk about the upcoming three Eclipses in more detail in my next Forecasting Forum. If you want to know how these powerful Lunations are going to impact you personally, feel free to join us — we will apply what’s coming up to our own birth charts. The Forum is on May 31st at 11:30am EDT — for more info, click here

One major thing to note in this New Moon chart, is that we now have 4 planets in Retrograde motion — and three of them are still stationing and therefore exalted. Something is “in our face” in regards to the energies of Saturn, Jupiter and Venus — something is demanding our attention and awareness. I will talk more about all of this below, but first let’s look at the Gemini influence of this New Moon:

With the New Moon in Gemini for the next four weeks, we are asked to connect with others and share our little hearts out, because Gemini is the archetype of curiosity, communication in all its forms, and mental connections — it represents the development of language and intelligence, as well as our ability to adapt and relate to our immediate environment.

This is a “busy” energy focused on…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 0-4 degrees of Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo or Pisces?  If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly; this is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo, the Moon rules Cancer)

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle; this is best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact, and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase.

So, this month, any time between 1:39pm, on May 22nd and 7:09am, on May 24th would be best — please note that all times are given in the Eastern Daylight Timezone — the timezone New York City occupies.

If you live in a timezone other than EDT (US East Coast-time), I recommend you join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter, as I post reminders on May 22nd, May 23rd, and May 24th to let you know when it is time to set your intentions 😉

May 18th – 24th

Have Faith — Forecast for May 18th – May 24th

 

This week’s headline items: the Balsamic Moon phase begins on Monday around noon; the Sun changes signs from Taurus to Gemini on Wednesday late morning; the New Moon in Gemini becomes exact on Friday afternoon, starting Eclipse season — and, although the planet is continuing to move retrograde, Venus’s Station phase ends on Sunday.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday late afternoon (for a little over 5.5 hours); Friday early morning (for a little over 5.5 hours); and Sunday morning (for 12 hours).

 

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, May 18th:

Monday, the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries all day. It will journey there until Tuesday late evening. Life is an adventure, we’re more open to new ideas, and have great enthusiasm for new projects. Patience is certainly not our strong suit at this time, but we can decide quickly, and act immediately.

Our independence and dynamism are important to us right now, so we may find it hard to be disciplined or accept advice at this time; in general, our responses to others tend to be more assertive or even aggressive. If you find your foot tapping, try hitting the gym, or finding other ways to burn off the body’s excess energy.

Monday very early morning, has lots of potential for healing around family, the “mother archetype”, home, and our past in general. We may feel more sensitive and insecure about what we identity with, and around our ability to be assertive; this gives us the opportunity to give ourselves some compassion, acceptance and nurturing in the face of our sensitivities and limitations.

Monday around noon EDT, the Balsamic Moon phase begins as the Moon reaches 13 degrees of Aries. This lasts until Friday afternoon, when the New Moon in Gemini becomes exact (more on that later in the week… however, to watch my New Moon video now alreadyclick here).

We are being asked to slow down and get quiet, so we can listen to our intuition. For some of us, this might be a stretch. As best as you can: stay grounded, take a deep breath and exhale any tensions.

Rather than starting something brand-new, put all that energy into completing existing projects. This is also a great time for letting go of whatever no longer serves us. What if you could hear the voice of your inner wisdom? What might it be saying?

Monday early afternoon, we have an opportunity to connect with others and move a project forward that is dear to us. It’s time for…

Don’t Exhaust Yourself — Forecast for May 11th – 17th

 

This week’s headline items: we have lots of planetary movements! Saturn comes to a halt, starting its yearly 4.5 month Retrograde phase early Monday, and Mercury changes signs from Taurus to Gemini that evening, while Jupiter’s station intensifies on Monday as well. Mars changes sign from Aquarius to Pisces Wednesday very early morning, while in the afternoon, Venus comes to a halt, starting her 6-week Retrograde phase. Late Thursday morning, we have the last Quarter Moon in Aquarius becoming exact and Jupiter coming to a halt, to begin its annual 4-month Retrograde phase. Although continuing retrograde, Pluto ends its Station phase on Sunday.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday morning (for a little over 5 hours); Thursday late morning (for almost 11.5 hours); and Sunday early morning (for a little over 5.5 hours).

 

Before we get to this week’s forecast, I’d like to mention some good news:

I decided to extend a sale for a wonderful webinar, because I didn’t have a chance to share it enough, and wanted to make sure that you all knew about it! It comes with some really valuable hand-outs as well!

It’s called: React vs. Respond Where in the chart can we learn about our emotional maturity?

Thank you for the most illuminating “React vs Respond” webinar! I’m inspired by your honesty and guidance through your astrological interpretations. Thank you for everything you do. With love & gratitude — Farida M.
See how you can support yourself and others on the path towards becoming an emotionally healthy, responding beings. We took a look at our own birth charts. This webinar is now still available at a 30% discount until May 17th!!! Click here to add it to your cart.

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, May 11th:

Monday, the Moon remains in ambitious, goal-oriented Capricorn all day. It will journey there until Tuesday late morning. We tend to be more realistic, serious, cautious; this can support practical endeavors and financial matters.

Our ambition surges and brings with it a need for structure and planning; when you add in the pragmatism this aspect supports, you can see how this could be a very productive time for business and long-term goals. Our reputation becomes very important to us.

As best as you can during this aspect, avoid “should-ing” on yourself. Take the pressure off, perhaps by saying “I am doing the best I can and that’s all I can ever do” 😉

Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn — and it will be transiting through Aquarius until July 1st, making this a great time to take a look at our visions for humanity, and at anything we would like to accomplish long-term within our communities (locally or online).

It’s also a great time to take a more serious look at our various networks and connections to like-minded people; as best as you can, be authentic about your affiliations: Do they truly resonate with your personal vision for the future — as it stands now, rather than what it was 5 or 10 years ago? Does participation in those groups or networks align with who you are now, and with where you see yourself 5 years from now? What do you truly want to commit yourself to?

Monday very early morning, at 12:09am EDT, Saturn comes to a halt in almost 2 degrees of Aquarius and goes retrograde until Sept. 29th. Saturn represents our structures, responsibilities, commitments — and our ability to “do” life on life’s terms.

When this planet comes to a halt and turns retrograde, we get to see where we need to create or renew our commitments. As best as you can, take it all in and see where you would like to make adjustments. You will get a chance to do just that for the next 4.5 months.

If you have an Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in the following: 0-4 degrees of Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, Scorpio, or 23-29 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries or Libra, you will be more affected by this Retrograde-phase. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Capricorn (Saturn being the ruler of Capricorn).

Also, Monday very early morning, a challenging Mercury/Mars aspect becomes exact at 3:33am EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Friday evening (May 10th) on; it will be strong until this Wednesday morning. This aspect brings some juicy energy to our conversations. This is a chance to have some discussions that have been overdue.

As best as you can, make it a productive discussion that serves you and others — a win-win — otherwise you might feel really awful afterwards. Also, watch out on the road for crazy drivers… rushing might not necessarily get us there faster 😉

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in the following: 25-29 degree of Taurus, Aquarius, Scorpio, Leo, or 0-2 degrees of Gemini, Pisces, Virgo, or Sagittarius? If so, you may feel more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo or Aries (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Mars rules Aries)

Monday at 5:58pm EDT, Mercury changes signs from steady, slow-paced Taurus to curious, quick-witted Gemini, where it will journey until May 28th. For the next 2 weeks, our thinking shifts gears: Mercury — the energy of communication — will pick up the pace of our lives just a little.

Mental exchanges and abilities take priority for the next two weeks — talking, writing, sharing, connecting to the world around us in whatever way we can (internet, phone, in person, TV, radio…). This is a time with great potential for studying and learning, curiosity and open-mindedness, and social/intellectual growth.

Make sure you don’t exhaust yourself during this time. As best as you can, keep taking breaks and let yourself see the larger picture now and again. Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini or Virgo? If so, you will feel the pick up in pace more strongly.

Also on Monday, Jupiter’s Station intensifies at 27 degrees of Capricorn, as it is preparing to come to a halt on Thursday (starting its 4-month Retrograde phase). This intensified station will last until May 18th. We will feel its energy even more forcefully during this time.

As I mentioned back on May 2nd’s entry, when a planet stations, we start to be more fully aware of its energy; this awareness helps us to get more connected to those energies as they exist within us. We get to see where we need to embrace them more fully, so that we can use them in a healthy way, without getting lost in the lower vibrations of their expression.

Until May 18th, we have to face what this planet is trying to communicate to us: Jupiter represents our desire to seek insight via the gaining of knowledge. Some of this planet’s keywords: morality, gratitude, hope, honor, law.

Jupiter is also the planet of possibility, optimism, and growth (including mental and spiritual growth). It is also associated with a sense of humor, goodwill, and mercy.

The lower expressions of Jupiter include “Oh, the heck with it”, “I deserve this and more”, “the rules do not apply to me” — generally speaking: too much of a good thing, blind optimism, excess, stretching the truth, overindulgence.

Those of us who have any of our personal planets (or our Ascendant) in 25-29 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, or Libra will be…

Moon Nodes in Gemini-Sagittarius

On May 5th, 2020 very early in the morning, at 12:49am EDT, the Moon Nodes switched from Cancer/Capricorn to Gemini/Sagittarius; they will remain in those signs until January 2022! The last time the Moon Nodes were in these particular signs was back in October, 2001 – April 2003.

The transiting Moon Nodes show us what our Soul’s Journey currently requires on the collective and personal levels — let’s take a closer look at what this means:

The goal of the collective Soul’s journey is to balance and integrate two apparently opposite energies: our connection to information and communication (symbolized by Gemini), and our ability to see and go beyond the day-to-day, widen our perspective, and explore new paths while honoring our direct experience (linked to Sagittarius).

This will take looking closely at the balance between our mental processes and our quest for a larger truth or meaning.

This is also about being more conscious about our belief systems, perspectives, and attitudes towards life. It’s important to realize that the Sagittarian urge to “go beyond” is essential for our growth; in terms of balancing these energies, that same urge plays a crucial role in how we interact with others and share information (Gemini).

To get a more personal interpretation, we also need to take a look at the House placement of that Gemini/Sagittarius polarity in our own birth charts, as well as the signs involved… we cover the houses in a webinar (I will include a link at the end of this article).

In Gemini, the North Node invites us to make an effort to…

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, May 4th:

Monday, the Moon remains in detail-oriented, practical Virgo and VoC until 3:09am EDT; at that time, the Moon enters harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra, where it will journey until very early Wednesday early morning. The energy of the Libra Moon helps us be naturally courteous and diplomatic; we are more polite at this time, as we seek the approval of others.

We very much want to maintain equal, fair relationships at this time, and are therefore open to making compromises and negotiating. These next two days are a great time for mediation — but our need for peace and accompanying aversion to direct conflict could pull us to “yes” more easily than we might like.

We may also be able see both sides of the equation so well that we can’t make decisions. As best as you can, find an inner balance with this and communicate what needs to be said with grace and charm — even if it’s “No” 😉 One last quick note: this is also a great time for anything to do with visual arts.

Monday late afternoon, a Sun/Mercury alignment in 15 degrees of Taurus becomes exact at 5:41pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Saturday morning (May 2nd) on; and it will be strong until this Thursday. When the Sun and Mercury come together, we are especially sharp, communicative, and open. This aspect indicates a confident mind and an analytical approach to life.

Intelligence and communication abilities are strong. We can expect a no-nonsense approach to decision-making. Ideas tend to be practical and useful.

That said, we may not listen as well as the other speaks — we might be too busy thinking about what to say next. Words matter now, so choose them wisely: If people hung on your every word, what would you say then? What would you hold back from saying?

Our opinions are usually strong during this time; we like to think independently and are proud of our opinions and our thoughts. For this reason, our egos might get bruised if we are not “heard” — if our opinions are pushed aside, ignored or criticized. As best as you can, express yourself fully, knowing that others may have different opinions… and that’s ok.

We may dig in our heals, but find it does not serve us, so choose your battles wisely and seek peace wherever possible.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 12-18 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Aquarius or Leo ? If so, you will be more affected by this alignment. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo, Gemini or Virgo (the Sun rules Leo; Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo).

Also on Mondaythe Saturn’s station intensifies until May 16th. “Stationing” is when a planet moves more slowly through the sky. When a planet stations, its energy becomes more “exalted”; in the case of Saturn, this means we all feel the need to more fully face what is currently so, our actual reality.

Saturn has to do with doing what needs to be done — so we can fully understand the practical implications of our reality, and the consequences of our past actions. Saturn also represents our structures, responsibilities, commitments and ability to “do” life, on life’s terms.

As spirit beings in a physical world, it’s best to observe the laws of the physical world. The sooner we learn to “play by the rules”, the easier life gets. Saturn also represents time and the “domain” of time: growing up, maturing, understanding and acknowledging our limitations, setting healthy boundaries with others, living with integrity, being authentic and truthful, being serious and focused on building something of value to society.

Saturn is our teacher. If you had a cosmic teacher, where would your personal “Earth Classes” be focused, right now? Where are you being asked to take a more serious look at your social affiliations, communities (in-person or online), or group causes? Do they truly resonate with your personal vision for the future? Does participation in those groups or networks align with who you are now? What requires a more mature approach in those areas?

What calls for a commitment towards a larger future vision? What will time do?

As best as you can during the time of the station, bring flexibility and open-mindedness to any frustrations. This more intensified Station-phase will last until May 16th; and Saturn starts its 4-month Retrograde phase on Monday, May 11th in almost 2 degrees of Aquarius (more on that next week). Is your Sun-sign or Ascendant in Capricorn or Aquarius? If so, you are…

Super Full Moon in Scorpio – article

On May 7th, at 6:45am EDT, the Full Moon in almost 17.5 degrees of Scorpio becomes exact. The Moon in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio opposes the Sun in steady, peaceful Taurus. This is also another SuperMoon.

If you are currently a Member of my online community, click here to watch my video. You can also get access to this month’s Full Moon video, when you register for May 3rd’s Forecasting Forum: click here for more info.

There are many Station phases going on simultaneously this month, as a lot of planets are starting their Retrograde phases. Pluto, the ruler of Scorpio, was the first one to go retrograde, on April 25th — and its Station phase will still last until May 17th, which makes this planet more exalted until then.

Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn are exalted in the sky as well. All three of those planets will start their various Retrograde phases within three days of each other, between May 11th and May 14th. Since Venus rules Taurus, we have both planetary rulers of this Full Moon exalted at this time — a rare occasion 🙂 We will talk about this in more detail in a moment, but first….

This Full Moon shows us how far we have come, as well as what we must still release or transform, if we are to manifest what was begun at the time of the New Moon that occurred on April 22nd.

For the next two weeks, we seek the balance and integration of two polarities — and we are more aware that something needs to be brought into alignment. The balance in question is between our physical attachments, aversions, and connections — symbolized by Taurus— and our emotional attachments, aversions, and connections (Scorpio).

The time of the Full Moon is always more extroverted and emotional; this particular one invites us to let go of fears or disempowering behaviors, and thereby break through to the next level of our evolution, individually and collectively speaking.

So, here’s this Full Moon’s central question: As a society, are we living in alignment with our values, with what makes us happy and satisfied? As individuals? Do we feel empowered and emotionally fulfilled?

All right, let’s look at the signs involved in this polarity, beginning with Taurus: Taurus seeks…

A Realistic Vision for Humanity — Forecast for April 27th – May 3rd

 

This week’s headline items: Mercury changes signs from Aries to Taurus on Monday afternoon; on Tuesday, it is time to take actions on our New Moon Intentions; the First Quarter Moon in Leo becomes exact on Thursday late afternoon; also on Thursday, Venus starts her station (i.e. slows down), preparing for her 6-week Retrograde phase; and finally, on Saturday, Jupiter also begins its station, slowing down as it prepares for its yearly 4-month Retrograde phase.

There will be four Moon VoC phases this week: Monday early afternoon (for 28 min.); Wednesday afternoon (for a little over 5.5 hours); Friday early afternoon (for 13.5 hours); and Sunday late evening (for a little over 4.5 hours).

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, April 27th:

Monday, the Moon remains in chatty, versatile Gemini until 1:28pm EDT. We like to learn, connect and interact as much as possible. “Busy” feels good: connecting online, on the phone, or sharing face-to-face, preferably multi-tasking all the way… The one thing we can do without is boredom: If our mind is not engaged in some way, we might as well curl up and play dead 🙂

Monday at 1:00pm EDT, we enter a brief Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for 28 min. until 1:28pm EDT. Use this intuitive time as an opportunity to connect with others and move a project forward that is dear to you. It’s time to be direct and communicate — what do you need to move forward faster? Who could give you that information?

As always with a  Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow.

Monday at 1:28pm EDT, the Moon moves into protective, nurturing Cancer, where it will journey until Wednesday late evening (April 29th). With this Moon placement, we are more sensitive to what people say and therefore our feelings are more easily hurt — so be kind to yourself and others. Self-Care is key for the next two and half days 😉

Emotional safety is important to us as well; we like connecting to the familiar and we enjoy nurturing ourselves and others — home and family call to us, for instance. Make sure though, that your glass is filled before letting others drink from it, otherwise you might start to feel drained and resentful.

Monday at 3:53pm EDT, Mercury changes signs from enthusiastic, fast-paced Aries to steady, peaceful Taurus, where it will journey until May 11th. For the next 2 weeks, our thinking shifts gears: we want to connect to others in a realistic, down-to-earth way and we “say it like it is”. We appreciate common sense; we rely on our senses when it comes to processing information.

A well-developed sense of color, smell, and touch are characteristic of this Mercury position, so as long as Mercury is in Taurus, we will be drawn towards the “tasteful” in the realm of the five senses. We are more likely to have a no-nonsense approach to decision-making, and our ideas are often very practical and useful at this time.

When it comes to learning, we prefer demonstrations, concrete answers, and basic concepts for the next 2 weeks. We learn best when we see real-world uses for the theories we are trying to absorb. We simply process information better when we can personalize it (“what use is it to me?”) and attach it to the practical world.

Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus? Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini or Virgo? If so, you may…

April 20th – 26th

Our Journey towards Authenticity — Forecast for April 20th – 26th

 

This week’s headline items: The New Moon in Taurus becomes exact on Wednesday late evening; Pluto comes to a halt, starting its 5-month Retrograde phase on Saturday afternoon; Saturn starts its Station phase on Sunday, as it prepares to go retrograde.

There will only be two Moon VoC phases this week: Wednesday morning (for a little over 7 hours) and Friday evening (for almost 7 hours).

 

Before we get to this week’s forecast, I’d like to mention:​

If you haven’t had a chance yet to watch my Interview with Jean-Claude from Beyond Mystic about: what the future holds, please feel free to watch it here.

 

Now, this week’s Forecast…​ 

 

Monday, April 20th:

Monday, the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces and VoC until 3:00am EDT. At that time, the Moon enters pioneering, fast-paced Aries. It will journey there until Wednesday mid-afternoon. Life is an adventure, we’re more open to new ideas, and have great enthusiasm for new projects. Patience is certainly not our strong suit at this time, but we can decide quickly, and act immediately.

Our independence and dynamism are important to us right now, so we may find it hard to be disciplined or accept advice at this time; in general, our responses to others tend to be more assertive or even aggressive. If you find your foot tapping, try hitting the gym, or finding other ways to burn off the body’s excess energy.

Monday morning, we get an opportunity to take actions on our personal goals, in a very concrete way and bring a new level of focus and authenticity to our future visions

Monday late afternoon, has lots of potential for healing around family, the “mother archetype”, home, and our past in general. We may feel more sensitive and insecure about what we identity with, and around our ability to be assertive; this gives us the opportunity to give ourselves some compassion, acceptance and nurturing in the face of our sensitivities and limitations.

 

Tuesday, April 21st:

Tuesday, the Moon remains in…

New Moon in Taurus — article 2020

On April 22nd, at 10:26pm EDTthe New Moon becomes exact in 3.5 degrees of Taurus. This marks the beginning of a new Moon cycle.

As best as you can, get really quiet, and see if you are getting any new messages or ideas. If you are, harvest them, and fold them into any intentions you set for the new Moon cycle — I will talk about this process later in the article, and I’ll even give you the very best and most potent times for doing so 🙂  Click here to watch my video on the subject.

This New Moon aligns with Uranus in Taurus, squares Saturn in Aquarius, semi-sextiles Neptune in Pisces, and trines the South Node in Capricorn.

So, as you can see, lots of planets and points connect to this New Moon. This paints a complex picture, with opportunity for change, an atmosphere of diversity, a need to redefine “old” structure, an extra effort to connect with our compassionate heart and our imagination, and a sense of knowing that all is well, all of the time.

But before we go into all of these aspects in more detail, let’s first talk about the sign of Taurus:

This New Moon in steady, peaceful Taurus places more focus on our interactions with the physical world — you could say that we seek a healthier relationship with “matter”, one in which we are neither too attached, nor too disconnected from things on the physical plane — for example, our bodies, resources (such as money), and the planet we co-inhabit.

We are powerfully reminded to….

Do you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 1-5 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo or Aquarius? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle. This is best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact — and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase. So this month, the best and most potent time to set intentions would be between 10:26pm on April 22nd  until 8:43pm on April 24th — all of those times are given in US East Coast-time.

For more info on setting New Moon Intentions, click here.

If you live in a timezone other than EDT (US-Eastern Daylight Savings Time), feel free to join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter. I will be posting reminders on April 22nd, 23rd and 24th — to let you know that it’s the best time to set your intentions 😉

 

April 13th – 19th

A Common Vision for Life — Forecast for April 13th – 19th

 

This week’s headline items: Pluto’s Station phase intensifies on Monday; the Last Quarter Moon in Capricorn becomes exact on Tuesday evening; the Sun changes signs from Aries to Taurus on Sunday late morning.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday evening (for almost 8 hours), Friday late morning (for almost 4 hours), and Sunday evening (for 7.5 hours).

Before we get to this week’s forecast, I’d like to mention:​

Now, this week’s Forecast…​ 

 

Monday, April 13th:

 Monday, the Moon remains in ambitious, goal-oriented Capricorn all day. It will journey there until Wednesday very early morning. We tend to be more realistic, serious, cautious; this can support practical endeavors and financial matters.

Our ambition surges and brings with it a need for structure and planning; when you add in the pragmatism this aspect supports, you can see how this could be a very productive time for business and long-term goals. Our reputation becomes very important to us.

As best as you can during this aspect, avoid “should-ing” on yourself. Take the pressure off, perhaps by saying “I am doing the best I can and that’s all I can ever do” 😉

Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn — and it will be transiting through Aquarius until July 1st, making this a great time to take a look at our visions for humanity, and at anything we would like to accomplish long-term within our communities (locally or online).

It’s also a great time to take a more serious look at our various networks and connections to like-minded people; as best as you can, be authentic about your affiliations: Do they truly resonate with your personal vision for the future — as it stands now, rather than what it was 5 or 10 years ago? Does participation in those groups or networks align with who you are now, and with where you see yourself 5 years from now? What do you truly want to commit yourself to?

Monday morning, we are invited to connect with like-minded people, and learn something new about our unique talents or value to the world. We are better able to connect to anything that involves a long-term commitment. We perhaps might also implement revolutionary business practices or government programs that support our values and make life tangibly more enjoyable.

Also on Monday morning, we are invited to make adjustments and find creative solutions to seemingly insoluble situations. As best as you can, make space for looking into some alternative exercise programs or holistic approaches to your personal projects and current long-term commitments. Compassion is key 😉

Monday late morning, we are in invited to make some inner adjustments. We feel uneasy or awkward and need to make a choice. Making this choice demands we develop inner awareness around two very different urges: on the one hand, the desire to connect and share ourselves with others — and on the other, the need to accomplish something out there in the real world, and to be responsible and self-reliant.

Also on Monday, Pluto’s Station phase intensifies until May 9th. It will come to a halt on April 25th in 25 degrees of Capricorn (more on that next week). As I mentioned last week already, when an outer planet stations, its energy gets more pronounced; this becomes even more pronounced when its Station phase intensifies.

We become even more aware of its impact on us — and this can sometimes cause discomfort. We are being asked to hang out with that discomfort until the planet’s energy has picked up speed again (around May 17th).

As best as you can, take a closer look at whatever is “in your face” for the next 5 weeks. Look for what might no longer be in alignment with your soul’s purpose (your deep, authentic, emotional Self) — especially in relation to long-term goals and your standing in society.

Ask yourself: Where am I holding on, out of fear? What habits, behaviors or fears are holding me back from feeling fully empowered from within? What would it look like, if I was fully aligned with my Soul-purpose? How would it feel?

When we confront our fears we very often discover hidden gifts and strengths. Do you have an Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in…

Here is a testimonial from one of our participants after joining our most recent Forum:

“I want to express my gratitude for your insights into my chart today. Each time I listen to one of your webinars, my understanding grows. I will be so fortunate to be able to listen to what you said again in case I didn’t catch it all.” — Cathy E.

Have a fantastic week! Stay healthy, strong, centered, safe and keep tuning in!
Many blessings,
