Now for this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, August 19th:

Monday, the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries all day. It will journey there until Tuesday night/Wednesday very 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 late morning, things flow nicely, and we feel excited about new adventures. There is an ease around connecting with others and communicating in a heartfelt way. We have an opportunity to take playful actions that support our projects.

Monday early evening, we are invited to make some adjustments in our lives and find creative solutions to seemingly incompatible situations. On the one hand, we are invited to focus on building solid foundations under any long-term goals currently underway. Some helpful questions you could ask yourself: What benefits might I reap from taking it one step at a time?

On the other hand, we have this need to make time for personal desires and needs; here, you could ask yourself: What does my inner teenager require to be happy at this time?

Also, Monday early evening, we feel an enthusiasm for personal achievement and exploration; in particular, we have an urge to explore something new that helps us develop an all-around understanding of…

Now for this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, August 12th:

Monday, the Moon remains in practical, accomplishment-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; it is currently transiting through its own sign, making this a great time to take look at your long-term aspirations and anything that you would like to master over the next three years. It’s also a great time to take a more serious look at our strategies for self-mastery.

For starters: Do you truly see “what’s so” in your life (as opposed to what you merely wish it to be, or what you would like it to be, or where you see yourself going, etc)? What is actually so right now? Once you have a handle on where “A” is, it’s easier to “go from A to B” — whether “B” is self-mastery or standing on the mountaintop.

Monday morning, we experience a sense of maturity, and commitment towards ourselves and our long-term goals; for long-term success, focus on long-term projects that require a realistic approach or a solid commitment.

Monday late morning, we have an opportunity to soften our need for accomplishment with a gentler, more intuitive approach.

Monday afternoon, 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 have fun with others, and create something beautiful — and on the other, the need to accomplish something out there in the real world, and to be responsible and self-reliant.

Monday at 6:11pm EDT, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for almost 17.5 hours until 11:35am EDT (Tuesday late morning). Use this intuitive time to focus on long-term successes. We might get a little obsessed with a project or task — as best as you can, take breaks and don’t forget to practice a little self-care 😉

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…

Full Moon in Aquarius — article

On Aug. 15th, at 8:29am EDT, the Full Moon becomes exact in almost 22.5 degrees of Aquarius. The Moon in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius opposes the Sun in fun-loving, expressive Leo. If you are already a Member of my online community, you can click here to watch my video about this Full Moon 😉

Two planets are Stationing at the the time of this Full Moon, and are therefore more exalted: Jupiter in Sagittarius (i.e. in its own sign), and Uranus in Taurus (the modern ruler of Aquarius). Both of these planets change direction on Aug. 11th, with Jupiter going direct after a 4-month retrograde phase, and Uranus starting its 5-month retrograde phase.

We will talk in more details about both of these planetary shifts in my next Forecasting Forum on Aug. 15thFeel free to join us live, or register to get the mp4-video presentation of this webinar, to see how these Station phases are impacting you personally.

But first, let’s talk about this Full Moon:
The Sun in Leo conjuncts Venus and Mars, so the Moon in Aquarius opposes this Stellium in Leo; this highlights the power of our individual creativity and the exponential potency of collaboration. Each of us is invited to reclaim ourselves, and add our voice, heart, and hands to something that has meaning for us.

Leo symbolizes the embodiment of heart-centered consciousness — the expression of our own individual light, unique gifts, and inner spark of the divine — while on the other hand, Aquarius symbolizes the power of community and collaboration to bring about a common vision.

When we align our head with our heart, we feel our interconnectedness with all of humanity, and we create and connect from love instead of fear. Given that Leo represents our individual self-expression and Aquarius our vision for humankind, a question is raised: How can we best achieve a balance between these two energies? Or perhaps even an integration?

For the next two weeks, we’ll be looking for answers to this question, as we become more aware that something is out of alignment.

Even the brightest of Full Moons has a shadow side — so let’s take a look at the shadow of both signs involved in this Full Moon — and please note that the shadow side of any sign is usually not as comfortable to look at or easy to embrace… As always with shadow aspects of ourselves, we need to beware of getting triggered or jumping to conclusions; we need to make sure we take time to respond rather than react.

Which is very apropos to the talk I gave last weekend at the “Fresh Voices in Astrology Summit”. This event featured 12 talks from 12 different astrologers — and you can purchase an “All Access Pass” and get recordings of each session, for roughly $10 per topic. Click here for more info — and if you who attended liveplease email me, so I can send you the “React vs. Respond” handout I used in my talk.

Back to the shadow sides of this Full Moon — let’s start with Leo’s shadow side, since we currently have a Stellium in Leo:
Leo’s shadow can show up as…

August 5th – 11th

How Free Do You Feel? — Forecast for Aug. 5th – 11th

 

This week’s headline items: Uranus’s Station phase intensifies on Monday, and that same day is when we can also start taking actions on our New Moon Intentions. Mercury’s station ends on Tuesday, the first Quarter Moon in Scorpio becomes exact on Wednesday afternoon, Jupiter’s station intensifies on Thursday (and comes to a halt on Sunday morning — ending its 4-month Retrograde phase), Mercury changes sign from Cancer to Leo on Sunday afternoon, and Uranus comes to a halt on Sunday late evening, starting it’s 5-month Retrograde phase.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday very early morning (for 8 hours), Thursday late morning (for a little over 5.5 hours), and Saturday afternoon (for 9 hours).

Quick announcement before we get started:
If you missed some of the Astrology Summit this weekend, or all of it… don’t worry, you can still get the ALL ACCESS PASS and you can watch all 12 lectures whenever you like.
PS: All Access Pass is only $97 through 11pm EDT tonight. Then goes up to $125.00

Now for this week’s Forecast…

Monday, August 5th:

Monday, the Moon remains in harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra all day. 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 after 6:25am EDTit’s time to take actions on our New Moon intentions: if you set Intentions last week Wednesday night, Thursday, or Friday — after the New Moon became exact — today (Monday) will be the best time to take relevant actions. If you wrote your intentions down, go back and take another look at what came through intuitively. If you didn’t write anything down, get quiet for a moment and check in with yourself: What actions are calling to me?

Monday late morning, we have an opportunity to connect with others for collaboration and an exploration of our beliefs about life. What does expansion of the mind look like? How might a wider view support our connections with others?

Also, Monday late morning, we are invited to make some adjustments in our lives and find creative solutions to seemingly unsolvable situations. As best as you can, look for solid foundations under any long-term goals currently underway, and for ways to create win-win outcomes for one-on-one relationships.

Monday afternoon, we are invited to make some internal adjustments. We may want to connect with others, but may also need to tune in to our intuitive inner voice. What do you hear when you get really quiet?

Monday late evening, we may need to make some adjustments and find creative ways to work with the energies at play: On the one hand we need to collaborate with others and play nice, on the other hand, we feel a deep desire to be authentic and truthful about what we want to build long-term.

Also Monday, Uranus’s Station phase intensifies — and will appear to move particularly slowly through the sky until Aug. 19th. It will come to a complete halt on August 11th in 6.5 degrees of Taurus and begin its 5-month retrograde phase.

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 August 26th.

Definitely expect the unexpected while this is going on: 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 three 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 😉

Some of us will feel the effects of this station more than others: those of us with a…

Now for this week’s Forecast…

Monday, July 29th:

Monday, the Moon remains in chatty, versatile Gemini and VoC until 7:31am EDT; at that time, the Moon moves into protective, nurturing Cancer, where it will journey until Wednesday late morning. With this Moon placement, we are more sensitive to what people say to (and about) us, so be kind to yourself and others. Emotional safety is important to us at this time: We like connecting to the familiar, home or family becomes our sanctuary.

Nurture yourself and others, but remember: Make sure your glass is filled before letting others drink from it — otherwise we might start resenting others for draining our energies

Monday late afternoon, we are invited to make adjustments and (as best as we can) find creative solutions to seemingly insoluble situations. Make space both for healing around anger or self-identity and for taking care of emotional or family issues.

Monday early evening, brings an opportunity to connect to family (or friends that feel like family) and create breakthroughs around things that we enjoy through our five senses (e.g. food). This may also be a good time to find a unique or global approach on financial matters that bring us a sense of emotional security.

Monday evening, a challenging Sun/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 7:14pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect from Friday evening (July 26th) on; it will be strong until Thursday evening (August 1st). Routines and plans — especially those connected with creative endeavors, children, romance, parties or sporting events — are quite likely to experience disruption, calling for flexibility and creative solutions.

During this transit, we feel a great need to make progress, as we feel quite restless — maybe even anxious — but if we’re unclear on what is in our best interest, we might focus on things that don’t serve us in the long run.

As best as you can, go with the flow and stay open to experiencing something new and wonderfully unexpected; if you can, put off making major decisions for the time being… “haste makes waste” during this aspect 😉

You can think of this as “reorganizing” time — like rearranging your furniture — try not to resist the reorganization. Enjoy the ride… and remember: it only feels uncomfortable because it’s new and different. Could you allow yourself to be comfortable with being uncomfortable?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in…

New Moon in Leo — article

On July 31st, at 11:12pm EDT, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 8.5 degree of Leo — in other words, the New Moon will be exact. (I recommend you also watch my New Moon video on the subject).

This New Moon is also the end of Eclipse season; we have received our consciousness upgrades, and can now move forward with any intentions we set in early July.

The New Moon in fun-loving, extroverted, expressive Leo has us looking for heartfelt experiences. It’s important for us to express ourselves, to learn about love — and in particular, to learn about how those things work together to gift us the power of creating from the heart and from a place of joy.

Think about the keywords for this self-expressed fire sign: “proud, generous, hospitable, caring, warm, authoritative, active, open, fun-loving”… How could you live into those words?

Leo is ruled by the Sun, symbol of consciousness and the unique light we came to shine forth in this lifetime — this is what we were born to explore and express… ask yourself: Where could I shine my unique light more brightly? What brings me joy? Not just in general… but in this very moment?

Leo also represents our creativity. There are as many ways to be creative and self-expressed as there are “selves” — indeed, we are all creators — we create with every thought, every word, and every action.

Creativity requires innocence, curiosity, courage, and play. To live it out, we must tap into the unique spark inside of us in a joyful way; we must also allow ourselves the freedom to make mistakes — creativity thrives on love and permission and is stifled by judgment and fear.

Take a moment to contact your “free inner child” — that place inside that is ready to play and create. What might that inner child need to come out and play? If you aren’t sure, there’s no need to guess: Try asking it gently and directly…

This New Moon chart is unique, in that we have six retrograde planets (bear in mind that there are only 9 planets that can even go retrograde)! This means that…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 6-11 degrees of Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, or Scorpio? Or do your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer? This New Moon may feel stronger to you…

Last but definitely not least: the New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle; the best time for the intention-setting process is soon after the New Moon becomes exact, and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase.

So the best time to set intentions this month would between 11:12pm (July 31st) and (Aug. 1st) at 4:48pm, and then again on Aug. 2nd from 9:20am until 11:12pm (all times in EDT — the New York timezone).

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 Wednesday late evening, Thursday throughout the day, and Friday all day, to let you know when it is time to set your intentions 😉

July 22nd – 28th

Time for Gratitude – Forecast for July 22nd – 28th

 

This week’s headline items: the Sun changes sign from Cancer to Leo, late Monday evening, Chiron’s station ends on Tuesday, the last Quarter Moon in Taurus becomes exact Wednesday late evening, Mercury starts to slow down again on Friday, as it prepares to end its Retrograde, and Venus changes sign from Cancer to Leo late Saturday evening.

There will be four Moon VoC phases this week: Monday early morning (for almost 1.5 hours), Wednesday late morning (for almost 7 hours), Friday night/Saturday very early morning (for 2 hours) and Sunday late morning (for 20 hours).

Quick announcement before we get started:

Now for this week’s Forecast…

Monday, July 22nd:

Monday, the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces until 6:02am EDT. This Moon placement often finds us more sensitive, intuitive, idealistic and imaginative than normal.

Monday at 4:34am EDT, we enter a brief Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for almost 1.5 hours until 6:02am EDT. This is an intuitive time; if you are awake, use it to connect with family (or those who feel “familiar”), to form emotional connections, and to allow the flow of your feelings — allowing creative or spiritual presence to move through you.

If you find your foot tapping, try hitting the gym, or finding other ways to burn off the body’s excess energy.

Monday at 10:50pm EDTthe Sun changes signs from sensitive, protective Cancer to fun-loving, extroverted, expressive Leo, where it will journey until Aug. 23rd. With the Sun in Leo, we are more inclined to connect to our heart and follow our joy: it’s a great time for gratitude, compliments, and playfulness.

In many ways, happy children embody the best of the Leo qualities: they are creative, playful, self-expressed and follow their hearts. Who could you be if you lived from your “inner child” more fully for the next four weeks?

If you have a Leo Sun-sign or Rising-sign, this means…
