Now, this week’s Forecast

Monday Jan. 14th:

Monday: the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries until 1:31pm EST. 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, at 1:46am EST, the first Quarter Moon in Aries becomes exact. If you are already a Member, feel free to click here and see Sunday night, Jan. 13th for more details.

Monday morning, an opportune Mercury/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 8:13am EST. We started to feel this aspect from last week, Saturday evening (Jan. 12th) on; it will remain strong until this Tuesday evening. This aspect gives us the opportunity to bring compassion and an intuitive approach to our thinking process. Having faith and connecting to our Higher Selves will be of service to us at this time. Any artistic or spiritual endeavors are likely to do well at this time. Music might help us with our thinking process and ability to get things done.

Let yourself be inspired! A book, a song, a movie, someone else’s words allow the Universe to speak to you. Open your mind to a higher vibration — and remember, opportunities are openings… they aren’t necessarily handed to us… we have to “take” them and make something of them.

Do you have your Ascendent, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 12-17 degrees of Capricorn, Pisces, Scorpio or Taurus? If so, you may be more aware of this opportunity.This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo or Pisces (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Neptune rules Pisces).

Monday at 10:56am EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that last for a little over 2.5 hours, until 1:31pm EST. Use this intuitive time to connect with people that can enthusiastically support your projects and share with them what you have going on.

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. You may also want to plan Monday late morning/early afternoon  ahead of time.

Monday at 1:31pm EST; the Moon moves into steady, peaceful Taurus, where it will journey until Wednesday evening. We love all physical comforts, prefer consistency, and would rather stick with what we know works well. In other words: change is not our favorite thing and “rushing things” goes against our grain. What is our favorite thing for the next two days? It’s probably, slowing down and…

Full SuperMoon/Lunar Eclipse in Leo

Monday very early morning, on Jan. 21st, at 12:16am EST, the Moon opposes the Sun in almost 1 degrees of Leo — this is a very powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse becoming exact. We started to feel this aspect build from the moment the Moon entered Leo Sunday (Jan. 20th), at 10:54pm EST. 

Once every six months, the Sun, Moon, and Earth align precisely enough for a Solar or Lunar Eclipse to occur. Eclipses are always powerfully connected to the Moon Nodes and thus to our Soul’s Journey. If you’d like to learn more about this month’s Full Moon, click here to watch my Lunar Eclipse video.

This Full Moon is the second of two Eclipses in January and it’s extra-powerful. There are two main reasons for this: firstly, because it’s a SuperMoon — these occur when the Moon is either Full or New while at its closest distance to the Earth — they are therefore more powerful. This often means an increase in emotional reactivity, plus greater awareness around the issues connected to the particular Full Moon energy in question.

Secondly, as the last Eclipse in the Leo/Aquarius polarity, it completes an Eclipse cycle that started in Feb. 2017 — this put an emphasis on freedom and individuality, while redefining our approach to improving our future — and paradoxically, also on our need to belong. We are also invited to become more aware of our mind’s activities, of group affiliations out there in the world, and of moving towards a courageous, open, and self-expressed heart — one that knows how to joyfully and playfully connect to the “here and now”.

Think back over the last two years, and ask yourself: What has shifted for me, in my attitudes towards the collective (or “humanity”)? How about like-minded people or political/group affiliations? Was there likewise a shift in my desire for more joy? For authentic self-expression? Heartfelt actions? If I think back to the last Solar Eclipse in Leo (August 11th, 2018), what brought the possibility for more joy into my life since then? Have I been able to get more in touch with my inner child?

A final note about Eclipses: they’re consciousness upgrades. For 7 – 10 days before and after one, we are usually in uncharted territory — anything is possible and it’s wise to expect the unexpected. Anything brand-new started during this time will likely not pan out the way we thought it would, often because important information comes to light only after Eclipse season is over.

For that reason, try to defer any major brand-new projects until after Jan. 30th, when this particular Eclipse season ends. That said, if something is beginning or ending in a way that seems organic, allow it to “be”… Just be wary of the urge to push something forward merely to relieve anxiety or impatience.

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 0-6 degrees of Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, Scorpio, or 26-29 degrees of Cancer, Capricorn, Aries or Libra? If so, you may feel the effects of this powerful Full 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). And if you’d like to learn more about this month’s Full Moon, click here to watch my Lunar Eclipse video

January 7th – 13th

Reclaim Your Authority — Forecast for Jan. 7th – 13th

 

This week’s headline items: Venus changes signs from Scorpio to Sagittarius on Monday morning, Uranus is still exalted all week (since it is still stationing); and the first Quarter Moon in Aries becomes exact on Sunday night.

Also, we can start setting our Solar Eclipse Intentions on Monday evening; if we don’t get a chance to do it by Tuesday evening, we’ll have another chance on Wednesday afternoon.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday very early morning (for 26 minutes), Wednesday early afternoon (for almost 3 hours) and Friday late morning (for almost 18 hours).

Before we get to this week’s forecast, I have two quick announcement: 
We are still in the middle of Eclipse season: A Solar Eclipse in Capricorn was exact on Jan. 5th, and a Lunar Eclipse in Leo will be exact on Jan. 21st. Align yourself with your Soul’s Journey! What needs your focus for the next 6 months? What is coming to fruition?

Saturn’s placement in its own sign plays an important role in the Eclipse we just had on Saturday, Jan.5th (we will feel the effects for the rest of the year) — and if you’d like to know more about how Saturn’s journey in Capricorn will impact you personally until March 2020feel free to get my webinar on the subject, available for purchase here.

If you are already a Star or SuperStar Member check your email for the link to this webinar — it was emailed to you on Dec. 20th 😉

 

Now, this week’s Forecast — Monday Jan. 7th:

Monday (Jan. 7th): the Moon remains practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn until 1:46am EST. At 1:20am EST, we enter a very brief  Moon Void of Course (VoC),  that last for 26 minutes, until 1:46am EST. This intuitive time could be a good time to connect with others on a deeper level.

If you are awake, take the opportunity to collaborate with others, and bring a new level of focus and authenticity to your long-term goals. 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 1:46am EST, the Moon moves into freedom-loving, forward-thinking  Aquarius, where it will journey until Wednesday afternoon. The energy of the Aquarian Moon relates to our instinct for improvement. Reactions are more intellectual than emotional; interactions more impersonal than personal. We are likely to have an increased fascination with the new and unusual.

Social gatherings, anything connected with group ideals and goals for the future, brainstorming, new ideas and methods, progress: all these are promoted during the time the Moon moves through Aquarius. Again: we have our eyes on the future — or on outer space 🙂 Personal freedom becomes paramount.

Monday at 6:18am EST, Venus changes signs from intense, all-or-nothing Scorpio to adventurous, freedom-loving Sagittarius. It will journey there until Feb. 3rd; until then, we feel more social, and inclined especially to connect to people from different backgrounds and countries. We like to explore new things, whether food or social gatherings: if it’s exotic, it’s great!

We are more likely to take some risks now with others, and to say what’s on our mind. Our relationships need to be connected to adventure — a trip might be just the thing. Getting away from our routines and exploring life… hey, why not? 🙂

Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus or Libra? If so, you will feel more adventurous and spontaneous for the next 3.5 weeks; your heart will want to explore new things and get a new perspective on life. If you are a Sagittarius Sun-sign or Rising-sign, for as long as Venus is in your sign, you will attract more love, abundance and beauty into your life.

Last but not least, Monday after 8:28pm EST, you have all evening and tomorrow (Tuesday) all day to set your Solar Eclipse Intentions. Make them powerful: after all, they cover the next six months — and if possible, align them with the Capricorn energy I spoke of in my Solar Eclipse video (feel free to watch it again if you need a refresher — click here to watch 😉

If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast-time), and converting timezones isn’t your thing, I suggest joining my Facebook Fanpage and/or following me on Twitter. I will be posting reminders over the next three days, to let you know when it is time to set your intentions 😉 For more info on how to best set your Solar Eclipse Intentions, click here to read my article on the subject.

This Solar Eclipse reminds us that to be fully alive requires us to be aware and conscious, and show up as a responsible citizen of the world. So, while writing your intentions, ask yourself: …

December 31st, 2018 – January 6th, 2019

Fast Forward Motion — Forecast for Dec. 31st, 2018 – Jan. 6th, 2019

 

This week’s headline items: the Uranus station intensifies on Monday (and Mars changes signs from Pisces to Aries that evening), Mercury changes signs from Sagittarius to Capricorn on Friday, the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn becomes exact on Saturday, and Uranus comes to a halt on Sunday afternoon.

There will only be two Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday early evening (for 10.5 hours) and Friday early afternoon (for a little over an hour).

 

Now, this week’s Forecast:

Monday (Dec. 31st): the Moon remains in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio all day. It journeys there until Wednesday early morning. We feel things deeply and have “X-Ray Vision” and “Bullshit-Smelling Abilities” 😉

Emotional authenticity is extremely important to us at this time; anything less than 100% emotional honesty could be perceived as flat-out dishonest. Once we feel safe trusting someone, we want to merge with them, preferably forever… as long as our trust is never betrayed.

The Moon in Scorpio urges us to uncover our own power. This occurs by a process of subtraction — it urges us to let go of whatever disempowers us. It’s thus an excellent time to look at “old” fears, limiting habits or emotional attachments, especially those stemming from past traumas.

In Scorpio, the Moon tends to run right over ambiguity — it’s “in or out”, “with us or against us”, “love me or leave me”. It can be stormy — a cold winter storm, or a torrid tropical storm of passion, depending on how we “work” the energies 🙂

Manipulation and paranoia are the lower vibrations of this aspect, so best as you are able, be straightforward — act in good faith and assume it in others. Best of all, be truly present to the fluctuations of your feelings — no matter if they’re “polite” or “timely”. Feelings aren’t facts, but they are information — and heeding them will help you embrace all of who you are.

Know thyself — and love thyself — you shall be set free. Remember: Love connects us to the Power within; Fear causes “Force” to show up — and that’s ultimately what disempowers us and others.

Monday late evening, at 9:20pm EST, Mars changes signs from sensitive, creative Pisces, to pioneering, enthusiastic Aries. Mars will journey through this fiery sign until Feb. 14th, 2019. Mars has an almost two year cycle; it last traveled through Aries in late January until early March 2017. Was there a significant new beginning for you back then?

For those next six and a half weeks, we will have a strong drive for fast forward motion; our first instinct is for action. Spontaneity is an asset, as are simplicity and innovation. We like the fresh start; there will very likely be new ideas, pioneering action and “fresh” projects abounding.

We enjoy challenges with this placement, so we are happy to take on something bigger than usual — maybe a new, more demanding job or relationship. Our physical energy is great, but we may lose our initial enthusiasm quickly.

We are not likely to beat around the bush now; a direct approach is definitely favored. Things to watch out for: impatience; getting irritated by other people’s indirectness; being insensitive to other people’s needs or approaches.

Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aries? If so, you will feel quite energized by this placement. Your physical energy will be tremendous, you are going to feel unstoppable. The only thing to watch out for: physical burnout.

Also on Monday, the Uranus station intensifies in 28.5 degrees of Aries, until Jan. 11th, 2019. It will come to a complete halt on Sunday (Jan. 6th) in 28.5 degrees of Aries, ending its 5-month retrograde phase (more about that on Sunday…). When an outer planet stations, its energy gets more pronounced, and this can sometimes cause discomfort. We are being asked to hang out with that discomfort until the planet’s energy picks up speed again around Jan. 14th (when the station phase has ended).

Definitely expect the unexpected. Uranus is all about breaking away from traditional structures and moving towards a new future — one that serves others as well as ourselves. Its keyword is “Freedom”: this aspect provides an opportunity to discover how free we actually feel. So… how free do you feel? 😉

As best as you can for the next two weeks, pull whatever is “in your face” even closer and take a good long look at it: our intuition will be very strong and deliver sudden insights and ideas, especially around what needs to change in our lives. What if you expressed your individuality to the fullest? What does the “larger vision” look like? Where is the obstacle?

Uranus also rules electronics, technology and the internet — so don’t be surprised by interruptions or short-term failures in these areas. Group activities are likewise ruled by Uranus, so these will move more to the forefront of awareness.

As best as you can during this aspect, stay open and flexible, go with the flow — and pay attention to messages from the Universe 😉

Is your Sun-sign or Ascendant in Aquarius? Or perhaps your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in…

December 24th – 30th

A New Future — Forecast for Dec. 24th – 30th

 

This week’s headline items: Uranus begins its station phase on Monday, Eclipse season officially starts on Wednesday, and the last Quarter Moon in Libra becomes exact early Saturday morning.

There will be four Moon VoC phases this week: Monday late morning (for a little over 2 hours), Wednesday late morning (for a little over 2 hours), Friday late morning (for 4 hours), and Sunday early evening (for 2.5 hours).

Before we get to this week’s forecast, I have one quick announcement:
If you missed my Forecasting Forum last week… and still would like to learn what to expect for 2019, feel free to watch the mp4-video presentation about this coming year — in relationship to your own Birth Chart… To purchase this webinar, click here.  Before you invest in the whole 120 min. webinar, feel free to watch a 15-min excerpt here. There are also some testimonials at the very bottom of this blog from participants of the webinar; feel free to check those out 😉

Star and SuperStar Members: check your email for the link to the mp4-video recording and enjoy watching it! I sent it out on Dec. 20th late evening 😉

 

Now, this week’s Forecast:

Monday (Dec. 24th): the Moon remains in protective, nurturing Cancer until 11:59am EST. 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 9:50am EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that last for a little over 2 hours, until 11:59am EST. You may be aware of two seemingly conflicting desires: On the one hand, a need for connection to the familiar; on the other, a desire to break free and rebel. Make space to both pursue your vision and improvements in general, and for taking care of emotional or family issues.

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. You may also want to plan Monday late morning ahead of time

Monday at 11:59am EST, the Moon moves into fun and attention-loving Leo, where it will journey until Wednesday early afternoon. We may lack objectivity and struggle with backing down or compromising.

We all love to be admired and — or at the very least acknowledged — for our greatness… 🙂 So if you can, hand out some compliments, let people in your life know how proud you are of them, tell them how much you love them. Come from the heart with this and all other things: be honest, authentic.

Fun, games and romance are a big part of this energy as well. You might also enjoy spending time with little ones. If there are no “outer children” around, how about getting in touch with your “inner child” — it’s definitely easier for the next two days. What are you most grateful for today? What would be heaps and heaps of fun? What would be so much fun, you let out a tiny squeak, just thinking of it?

Monday evening, a challenging Mercury/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 7:32pm EST. We started to feel this aspect build from Dec. 22nd on, it will remain strong until this Wednesday (Dec. 26th). This aspect asks us to stretch ourselves and grow.

We may experience a lack of clarity and objectivity. We might make embarrassing errors, neglect important details, or carry some delusions now. Our lack of clarity may make it difficult for others to understand us.

We are more imaginative now, and easily swayed by the opinions of others. We can be highly creative and inspired under this influence, but also overly sensitive, touchy, or impractical. What might a creative approach to life be?

It can be hard to follow routines. Concentrating on monotonous tasks and work (or study that involves attention to detail or rote learning) may also be challenging at this time. As best as you can, be compassionate with yourself and others during these 5 days.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 11-17 degrees of Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini or Virgo? If so, you are more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo or Pisces (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Neptune rules Pisces).

Also on MondayUranus begins to slow down (station) — it will come to a complete halt on Jan. 6th, prior to starting its direct motion again after its 5-month retrograde phase. We will feel this station until Jan. 14th; until then, anything connected to Uranus’s energy will come into our awareness quite strongly; we are faced with this planet’s message.

Uranus is all about breaking away from traditional structures, moving towards a new future, a future that serves others as well as ourselves. Keyword: Freedom. We might have flashes of insight or new ideas about what needs to change in our lives. Definitely expect the unexpected.

Uranus also rules electronics, technology and the internet, so don’t be surprised if you experience some interruptions or short-term failures in these areas. Group activities are also ruled by Uranus, so these will also be more at the forefront of our awareness. As best as you can, stay open and flexible, go with the flow — and pay attention to those messages from the Universe 😉

As best as you can, take a closer look at whatever is “in your face” for the next 3 weeks. Our intuitions will be very strong during this time and we have access to sudden insights and ideas. This gives us the opportunity to take a look to see how free we actually feel.

Are we expressing our individuality to the fullest? Are we connecting to a larger vision? Is anything holding us back? What did you discover about visions and freedoms these past 5 months?

Some of us will be more affected than others, depending on how it interacts with our personal chart. Is your Sun-sign or Ascendant in…

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday very early morning (for a little over 2 hours), Wednesday evening (for almost 14 hours), and Saturday late morning (for a little over 2 hours).

Before we get to this week’s forecast, I have two quick announcement:
1) If you haven’t had a chance yet to listen to my recent Radio Interview, from earlier this month, click here. Questions centered around how the zodiac can influence relationships and compatibility, and particularly sexual compatibility between the signs.

Live on Thursday, Dec. 20th at 11am PST/2pm EST/7pm GMT (London-time). Please note that we’ll talk about 2019! We will take a look ahead at the whole year to gain some perspective and get an overview of what’s to come: What can we expect in 2019? What are the energies to watch out for, and which ones are the energies to get excited about?

Now, this week’s Forecast:

Monday (Dec. 17th): the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries all day, where it will journey until Tuesday early morning. 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, an opportune Mars/Pluto aspect becomes exact at 1:57am EST. We started to feel this aspect from last week, Friday evening (Dec. 14th) on; it will be strong until this Thursday evening (Dec. 20th). This brings an opportunity to connect our personal passions to our Soul’s passions.

We can dream up creative solutions to problems, and imaginative, unusual approaches to getting the job done. We favor subtle or peaceful solutions over conflict and confrontation. We feel more confident about our own talents

It’s especially satisfying to do work that helps others — perhaps in support of a cause that transcends our own narrow, personal interests.

Strategic thinking and execution is favored right now, as is eliminating waste around time and energy. Remember though: An “opportunity” is just an opening, it’s not automatically granted — we have to “step up” to the opening, then through it…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 18-22 degrees of Pisces, Capricorn, Scorpio or Taurus? 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 Scorpio (Mars is the ruler of Aries; Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio)

Monday late morning, we are invited to make adjustments and find creative solutions around personal desires and needs, versus our deep passion and focus on long-term goals. As best as you can, allow yourself to make space for both; flexibility and adaptability are key if we mean to move forward with our plans and projects…

Also on Monday, around 10pm EST, Venus’s Shadow phase ends in 10 degrees and 50 min. of ScorpioDuring Venus’s shadow phases, it’s best to hold off on anything new in connection with relationships, things we hold dear, or place value on (including finances) — this is especially true when it comes to engaging in new relationships or partnerships. The good news is that with the Venus shadow phase ending today, we can finally go ahead and start up new enterprises, and make new financial investments.

Tuesday (Dec. 18th): the Moon remains in…
