January 27 – February 2nd

Slow Down & Listen — Forecast for Jan. 27th – Feb. 2nd

 

 

This week’s headline items: it’s time to take action on our New Moon intentions (from Thursday very early morning on); the first Quarter Moon in Taurus becomes exact on Saturday evening; Mercury enters its pre-Shadow phase in Aquarius on Sunday — and there will be two Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday evening (for a little over 10.5 hours) and Friday late morning (a little over 9 hours).

 

 

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Jan. 27th:

Monday, the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces all day. It will journey there until Wednesday morning. This Moon placement often finds us more sensitive, intuitive, idealistic and imaginative than normal. We also have a greater capacity for compassion, sympathy, and affection for all — but especially for those who suffer or can be regarded as the underdog.

But… that very idealism could also be our downfall at this time: We tend to see the best in everyone and everything, and when reality doesn’t match our idyllic vision, we might feel upset and even victimized by those harsh realities. A way out of this is to channel our idealism into spiritual or creative endeavors.

It’s also a great time for releasing fears — especially the ones based on a sense of separation — and experiencing “oneness”. Feelings tend to flow more freely; as best as you can, let them — in fact, “going with the flow” is the best way to go for the next couple of days.

Monday very early morning, if we are awake at this time, we get an opportunity to be very present, to connect with others and share a new vision about the Earth, or to reinvent how we connect with “the good things in life”. As best as you can, bring a sense of flow and faith to who you are being; allow yourself to intuitively share some progressive, new ideas about what is important to you, and things that could make yours and other people’s life easier on a very practical level.

Monday afternoon, a Venus/Neptune alignment in almost 17 degrees of Pisces becomes exact at 3:00pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from last Friday on, it will be strong until this Thursday. It asks us to dissolve anything that keeps us from opening our hearts more fully. This connection makes us dream of Soul connections with others.

We are highly romantic and may turn a blind eye to “what is”, in pursuit of a fantasy that we want or need to have fulfilled. Beware of anything that sounds too good to be true — whether that’s in connection with people or money — it might indeed be “too good to be true” 😉

On a more positive note, this combination also makes it easier for us to forgive others and ourselves — we can see the divine potential in others and therefore lean towards a compassionate approach.

Ask yourself: What needs my forgiveness and higher love (myself included)? What needs to dissolve or melt away, for my heart to be fully open?

What is my current relationship to the divine? In what ways could my imagination support that relationship? What might happen if I let myself be held by the divine? Might I be able to trust life and its mysterious ways more easily?

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

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 14-20 degrees of Pisces, Virgo, Gemini, or Sagittarius? If so, you will feel this alignment quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Pisces (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra, Neptune is the ruler of Pisces).

Tuesday, Jan 28th:

Tuesday, the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces all day (see Monday for details).

Tuesday early morning, we feel more sensitive and need to slow down a little — and at the same time, we also want to move fast and have new experiences. This tension clearly invites us to stretch a little, and to seek resolution via creative solutions — the key here is to listen to our intuition, so we don’t drive ourselves or others crazy.

Also on Tuesday early morning, a challenging Mars/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 5:34am EST. We started to feel this aspect from last week Thursday on, it will be strong until this Saturday. This aspect is asking us to stretch ourselves, in order to resolve a tension between the things we want to go after, versus our feelings about a higher, spiritual calling. We may be chasing a dream… or a fantasy.

Ordinary life may seem drab and uninteresting to us right now. We tend to either over- or underestimate our own power and abilities. We want something that stirs our imagination: Some vision or ideal or dream to motivate us.

We have a strong urge to act out our fantasies or live out our dream — and we have the energy now to DO that which others only talk or dream about; however we tend to feel scattered. As best as you can, slow down and listen to your intuition before aimlessly zooming ahead. Inspire yourself and others.

Ask yourself: Am I over- or under-estimating my abilities and capabilities? What if rushing was not the answer? What if a simpler, quieter approach also supported my desire for exploration and adventure? What if even small actions could produce profound results?

Most impacted by this aspect: those of us who have any of our personal planets (or our Ascendant) in 14-20 degrees of Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini, or Virgo. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aries or Pisces (Mars is the ruler of Aries; Neptune is the ruler of Pisces)

Tuesday late afternoon, we have the opportunity to be guided by inspiration, and fully commit to a project or task that might serve us long-term. As best as you can, listen and trust to the subtle messages in your heart, that stir you towards success.

Tuesday at 8:08pm EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 10.5 hours until 6:51am EST (Wednesday morning). Use this intuitive time as an opportunity to be very present — and also to focus on practicalities and long-term plans. As best as you can, bring a sense of flow and faith to your business dealings.

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 Tuesday evening until Wednesday morning ahead of time.

Wednesday, Jan. 29th:

Wednesday, the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces and VoC until 6:51am EST; at that time, the Moon moves into pioneering, fast-paced Aries, where it will journey until Friday 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.

Wednesday early 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.

Thursday, Jan 30th:

Thursday, the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries all day (see Wednesday morning for details).

Thursday early morning (from 2:50am EST on) offers an opportunity to start taking actions on our New Moon intentions: if you set Intentions last week Friday or Saturday — after the New Moon became exact — today, Thursday, will be the best time to start taking 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?

Thursday late morning: we are invited to make adjustments and find creative solutions around the tension between our personal desires and needs, versus our need for expansion and new perspectives on a professional level and in regards to 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…

Thursday evening has a passionate, fiery feel to it; we have an urge to explore something new that helps us understand the bigger picture all around. What is life all about? What is my role within it?

Friday, Jan 31st:

Friday, the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries until 7:28pm EST (see Wednesday morning for details).

Friday early 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…

Friday late morning, 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?

Friday at 10:10am EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 9 hours until 7:28pm EST. Use this intuitive time as an opportunity to connect with others and share your personal vision and dreams — and maybe make a difference in your current communities.

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 Friday late morning until the evening ahead of time.

Friday at 7:28pm EST, the Moon moves into steady, peaceful Taurus, where it will journey until next week, Monday (Feb. 3rd). 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 getting in touch with whatever. This Moon placement starts the build up towards the first Quarter Moon (exact Saturday late evening).

Saturday, Feb. 1st:

Saturday, the Moon remains in steady, peaceful Taurus all day (see Friday evening for details).

Saturday very early morning, if possible, connect with people that can support your projects on a practical level, and share with them what you have going on.

Saturday morning, the first Quarter Moon in a little over 12.5 degrees of Taurus becomes exact at 8:42pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from the moment the Moon entered Taurus this morning. The Moon, in steady, peaceful, comfort-oriented Taurus, makes a challenging aspect to the Sun in freedom-loving, forward-thinking, rebellious Aquarius.

We feel compelled to take action. Last week on Jan. 16th, the New Moon in Aquarius was exact: “Seeds” planted then are probably “sprouting” by now — and making their first real contact with the outside world. This is therefore a time to stretch and grow — and create some forward momentum. We may feel anxious or unusually busy.

As best as you can, go one breath at a time. Allow for changes, remain flexible (as much as possible), and find creative solutions for your day-to-day interactions with others.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in any of the following: 10-15 degrees of Taurus, Aquarius, Leo or Scorpio? If so, you will feel the effects of this first Quarter Moon more strongly than otherwise. 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).

Saturday evening, it is best to slow down a little and explore what’s sitting right in front of us that needs to be taken care of, so we can gain a new perspective around our goals and accomplishments; expanding too fast will backfire right now.

Sunday, Feb. 2nd:

Sunday, the Moon remains in steady, peaceful Taurus all day (see Friday evening for details).

Sunday very early morning, an opportune Venus/Pluto aspect becomes exact at 2:07am EST. We started to feel this aspect build from Friday morning on; it will remain strong until next week, Monday evening. This is an opportunity to bring a sense of compassion and creativity to whatever needs restructuring or rebuilding in our lives.

It’s also an opportunity to notice how obsessed we’ve become about manifesting something real/authentic and soften our approach a little. Remember: an opportunity is not automatically given to us; we have to make something of it.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 21-26 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 Taurus, Libra or Scorpio (Venus rules Taurus and Libra; Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio)

Sunday early morning, around 3:45am EST, Mercury enters its pre-Shadow phase when it reaches 28 degrees of Aquarius; this is two weeks prior to its Retrograde phase (which starts on Feb. 16th).

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 once more through the degrees of a sign that it had already passed through before and during its Retrograde phase. Mercury is usually in its shadow for about two-three weeks prior to a retrograde, and for almost three weeks after.

We will talk in more detail about Mercury’s Shadow, Station, and Retrograde phases in our next Forum on Feb. 9th. Feel free to join us live or register for the mp4-video presentation! To join for FREE every month, become a Star Member.

Sunday early afternoon, we are invited to make some internal adjustments: We may want to have some peace and quiet, while at the same time, wanting to connect with others and have an outdoors adventure.

Sunday early evening, we get a chance to empower each other around our long-term goals, by keeping things down to earth and enjoyable.

Sunday evening, we have an opportunity to connect with others in a gentle, compassionate way, and enjoy a good meal, a glass of wine, a massage… think “physical pleasures”.

And…

A heads up for next Monday (Feb. 3rd): the Moon remains in steady, peaceful Taurus until 6:29am EST. At 6:28am EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a brief minute until 6:29 EST; at that time, the Moon moves into chatty, versatile Gemini, where it will journey until Wednesday afternoon. At 6:37am EST, Mercury changes signs from Aquarius to Pisces, where it will journey until March 4th. More about all the details in next week’s forecast 🙂

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, January 20th:

Monday, the Moon remains in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius all day. It will journey there until Tuesday night/Wednesday very early morning. We’re strongly motivated to explore and learn. We’re not likely to be big fans of routine — diversity and new adventures work best at this time — we’re also physically restless and need to burn that off with activity and physical exercise.

We tend to feel more open, optimistic and inspired — but we also have a high degree of independence — and taking these two influences together, this means we’d rather inspire others to do things our way, as opposed to issuing or obeying orders. Inspiring others could come easier than normal, as we can see the bigger picture, leaving us confident that others will agree with us, once they see what we see.

As best as you can, speak your truth without assuming that everyone is on the same page as you. Improvisation works well for us at this time, as we are spontaneous and love living on the edge — just watch out you aren’t overdoing or overstating things.

Monday early morning, we have the opportunity to connect and collaborate with like-minded people, have an adventure, or simply do something that gets us excited about the future.

Monday late morning, at 9:55am EST, the Sun changes signs from practical, cautious, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn to freedom-loving, forward-thinking and objective Aquarius, where it will journey until February 18th. For the next four weeks, we have advancement and progress in our hearts.

We want to get off the beaten path, leaving behind old and outdated ways of thinking and doing, throwing off personal and social conditioning those restrictions, limitations and inhibitions that may once have felt safe, but now feel constraining.

Our idealism runs strong, but we can have some fixed ideas about how we want to accomplish these ideals although we are open to new ideas in theory, in practice we may actually be quite stubborn. Finally, we are also definitely more aware of the impact each individual has on the whole of society.

All this is especially true if you are a Leo or Aquarius Sun-sign or Rising-sign. As an Aquarius, you will feel a good dose of confidence and playfulness in the next four weeks; as a Leo, you are more objective than usual working towards a vision for the future might be just the thing for you to do.

Monday at 11:46pm EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 24 hours until 12:00am EST (Tuesday night/Wednesday very early morning). Use this intuitive time to make some adjustments. As best you can, honor both your need for adventure and exploration of life and your need to go within and get quiet. You may also feel a pull between introvert and extrovert, or simply fast and slow.

Tune in for a moment and see if you need to take a break or at least slow down a little. As best as you can, be compassionate and kind with yourself — and as always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t…

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 evening until Tuesday night ahead of time.

Tuesday, Jan. 21st:

Tuesday, the Moon remains in truth-seeking Sagittarius and VoC all day. We’re strongly motivated to explore and learn. We’re not likely to be big fans of routine — diversity and new adventures work best at this time — we’re also physically restless and need to burn that off with activity and physical exercise.

As best as you can, speak your truth without assuming that everyone is on the same page as you. Improvisation works well for us at this time, as we are spontaneous and love living on the edge — just watch out you aren’t overdoing or overstating things.

Given that the Moon is VoC all day, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new — stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. If you read this before Monday at 11:46pm EST, plan your day ahead of time! (see Monday morning, and Monday late evening for more details)

Tuesday night/Wednesday very early morning at 12am EST, the Moon moves into practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn, where it will journey until Friday 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.

Wednesday, Jan. 22nd:

Wednesday, the Moon remains in practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn all day (see Tuesday night/Wednesday very early morning for details)

Wednesday very early 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 😉

Wednesday early 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.

Wednesday early afternoon, an opportune Sun/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 1:03pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from Monday evening on; it will remain strong until Friday evening. This aspect is an opportunity for self-healing that could support our vision for the future and bring us into better alignment with our physical and emotional body.

We all have flaws, wounds, insecurities. The more we can open up to that being ok for ourselves, the less judgmental we will be with others. This is also a great time to recognize that our so-called flaws and insecurities have become some of our best assets and strengths — how might this be true for you?

Until Friday evening, as best as you can, practice gentleness; be kind to yourself and others. Again, remember: an opportunity is an opening, a glimpse of new possibilities — so “opportunities” are not simply handed to us, tied up with a bow — we have to “take” them, and make something of them. What will you do with this particular opportunity?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 0-4 degrees of Aquarius, Aries, Gemini or Sagittarius? 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 Leo (the Sun rules Leo).

Wednesday evening: we get an opportunity to be very present with others and keep each other grounded yet inspired. As best as you can, bring a sense of flow and faith to your interactions: What if you let yourself connect with others in a gentle way, supporting each other in realistic, practical ways?

Thursday, Jan. 23rd:

Thursday, the Moon remains in practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn all day (see Tuesday night/Wednesday very early morning for details).

Thursday very early morning, a challenging Sun/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 1:54am EST. We started to feel this aspect build from last Sunday night (Jan. 19th) on, it will remain strong until this Saturday night (Jan. 25th). This aspect asks us to stretch a little. We can’t expect much of anything this week… except the unexpected!

Future visions and humanitarian causes — especially those connected to like-minded people — 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 the following: 0-6 degrees of Aquarius, Taurus, Leo, or Scorpio, or 29 degrees of  Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, or Libra? If so, you will feel this aspect quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aquarius or Leo (the Sun rules Leo; Uranus rules Aquarius).

Thursday morning, an opportune Venus/Jupiter aspect becomes exact at 8:07am EST. We started to feel this aspect from Tuesday on and it will be strong until Saturday evening. We have an opportunity to grow within our social and spiritual relationships at this time. Humor and caring play a big role in our interactions with others.

We can call upon tolerance, optimism, compassion, and cooperation when dealing with our business relationships now. Financially speaking, things are “on the up”; we may have opportunities now to expand our pocketbooks — if we make decisions that are in alignment with our intuitive knowingness.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 10-14 degrees of Pisces, Capricorn, Taurus, or Scorpio? 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 Taurus, Libra or Sagittarius (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra; Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius).

Thursday at 9:08pm EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 11 hours until 8:20am EST (Friday morning). Use this intuitive time to experience a sense of maturity, and commitment towards yourself and your long-term goals; for long-term success, focus on long-term projects that require a realistic approach or a solid commitment.

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 Thursday evening until Friday morning ahead of time.

Also, Thursday, Uranus resumes its normal pace through the sky, ending its station (now in direct motion). What has come up in the last four weeks around radical change (financial or otherwise) and freedom around self-worth issues? How are you doing with honoring your own individuality or idiosyncrasies?

Friday, Jan. 24th:

Friday, the Moon remains in practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn and VoC until 8:20am EST; at that time, the Moon moves into freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius, where it will journey until Sunday evening. With this Moon placement, we often feel emotionally detached; when we do connect to our feelings, it’s typically from a cerebral, intellectual place. We need a cause or project that resonates — preferably one where we can connect with like-minded people.

For the next couple of days, we’ll tend to be more eccentric or experimental; future-related issues like politics or education call to us now, as do unusual or even esoteric subjects like Astrology, UFOs… indeed anything from outer space. Our scientific approach to things leans on originality and ingenuity; we definitely love being unconventional.

The increased value we place on personal and emotional independence could make us come off as indifferent or cold in one-on-one interactions. That said, we can still be friendly and kind, provided we aren’t pushed into doing something conventional or unethical.

Friday afternoon, 4:42pm EST, the New Moon in almost 4.5 degrees of Aquarius becomes exact. This is the beginning of a new Moon cycle.  I also recommend you watch my 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 late December.

With the New Moon in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius, we have our eye on the future. The highest, lightest vibration of Aquarius gives us the opportunity to see a clear vision for our life — and we are ready to make improvements.

Aquarius also deals with the power of ideals, technology, and inventions. We are interested in the collective focus on changing group consciousness.

At its best, Aquarius stands for equality and diversity, innovation and reform, collaboration and community; we strive for progress. The challenge here is to unite and transcend differences of gender, race, and cultural or religious backgrounds.

To move even further into that higher, lighter Aquarian vibration, ask yourself the following questions: Where am I called to make a difference? What could I, as an individual, do for humanity? And how might “group consciousness” help humanity make progress? Where might I begin?

At a denser Aquarian vibration, we feel… Click here to read the whole New Moon article and get all of the New Moon Coaching Questions (available for all Members of my online community by Jan. 21st the latest). Not a Member yet? Feel free to join us here

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in one of the following placements: 2-7 degrees of Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, or Scorpio? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly.

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 time and most potent time to set intentions would be any time between 4:42pm EST (Friday, Jan. 24th) and 2:06pm EST (Saturday, Jan. 25th).

If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast-time), and converting time-zones isn’t your thing, I suggest joining my Facebook Fan-page and/or following me on Twitter. I will post reminders, several times, to let you know when it is time to set your New Moon intentions 😉 For more info about Setting Intentionsclick here. https://goo.gl/TijxuK

Saturday, Jan. 25th:

Saturday, the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius all day (see Friday morning for details). It is also Chinese New Year today! I am not very well-versed in Chinese astrology, so I’ll just share an excerpt from an online source: “Today is the start of the Chinese year of the Metal Rat. This year can mean a new beginning in terms of international relationship and social order…”

Saturday morning, an opportune Mercury/Mars aspect becomes exact at 8:09am EST. We started to feel this aspect from this Thursday morning on; it will be strong until next week, Monday morning (Jan. 27th). This aspect provides an opportunity to connect thought to action. Body and mind can align; words and deeds connect with ease. As with any opportunity, we have to “take” this one: it will not happen by itself.

What actions are calling to you today? How might those actions be connected to other like-minded people… or a vision you have for humanity’s future?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 13-18 degrees of Aquarius, Sagittarius, Aries, or Libra? 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 Aries (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Mars rules Aries)

Saturday early afternoon, we have the opportunity to connect and collaborate with like-minded people, have an adventure, or simply do something that gets us excited about the future.

Saturday at 2:06pm EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 28.5 hours until 6:44pm EST (Sunday evening). Use this intuitive time to connect with others, and share your vision for the future. Could you permit yourself to get in touch with your unique spark — and communicate your divine genius?

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 Saturday afternoon until Sunday evening ahead of time.

Sunday, Jan. 26th:

Sunday, the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius and VoC until 6:44pm EST; at that time, the Moon moves into creative, sensitive Pisces, where it will journey until next week, Wednesday morning (Jan. 29th). This Moon placement often finds us more sensitive, intuitive, idealistic and imaginative than normal. We also have a greater capacity for compassion, sympathy and affection for all — but especially for those who suffer or can be regarded as the underdog.

But… that very idealism could also be our downfall at this time: We tend to see the best in everyone and everything, and when reality doesn’t match our idyllic vision, we might feel upset and even victimized by those harsh realities. A way out of this is to channel our idealism into spiritual or creative endeavors.

It’s also a great time for releasing fears — especially the ones based on a sense of separation — and experiencing “oneness”. Feelings tend to flow more freely; as best as you can, let them — in fact, “going with the flow” is the best way to go for the next couple of days.

Sunday evening, a challenging Venus/Mars aspect becomes exact at 8:37pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from last week, Monday evening (Jan. 20th) on; it will be strong until next week, Saturday (Feb. 1st). This aspect asks that we stretch ourselves with regard to the feminine/masculine dynamic as it manifests both “inside” and “outside”: A shift needs to occur.

This can show up in several ways, either through romantic and sexual tensions that we might experience with others. We may tease each other, flirt with each other and/or play hard to get. Or we may find ourselves arguing in a very passionate way with the opposite sex. Competitiveness, anger, frustration, or angst might be present. Either way, this can be a very passionate time.

Balancing and integrating masculine and feminine energies within ourselves would be very useful at this time.

If we experience these energies internally, there may be a desire for adventure — or just for being still and “adventuring” into ourselves, our heart-space, our inner universe. The challenge might be that we feel pulled in two directions — on the one hand, we want to feel “one” with others, and connect through love and kindness… While on the other hand, we want to be free and explore something new, outside of our familiar environment.

What might it look like, if you made room for both of these energies?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (MC) or personal planets in 10-22 degrees of Pisces, Sagittarius, Virgo or Gemini? If so, you will feel this aspect quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Aries (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra; Mars is the ruler of Aries).

Sunday night/Monday very early morning, we get an opportunity to be very present, to connect with others and share a new vision about the Earth, or to reinvent how we connect with “the good things in life”. As best as you can, bring a sense of flow and faith to who you are being; allow yourself to intuitively share some progressive, new ideas about what is important to you, and things that could make yours and other people’s life easier on a very practical level.

And…

A heads up for next Monday (Jan. 27th): the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces all day (see Sunday morning for details). In the afternoon, a Venus/Neptune alignment in almost 17 degrees of Pisces becomes exact at 3:00pm EST; we started to feel this aspect from Jan. 24th on; it will be strong until Jan. 30th. In the evening, the Moon in Pisces sextiles Jupiter in Capricorn, exact at 8:13pm EST. More about all the details in next week’s forecast 🙂

Announcement for Star & SuperStar Members for 2020!

The time has come for me to make some changes to my business, to make room for some changes coming in my life outside of business. I have started work on a book, and my priorities are shifting elsewhere as well: my husband and I were certified this week as Foster Parents, the first step on a journey to fostering a child with the long-term goal of adopting. We are doing our best to get ready for the huge shift of becoming first-time parents; since I am also in the process of writing my first book, one of the things that I needed to look at was my time commitment on a daily basis. The question I’ve been asking is “how I can make more space for raising a child, and writing my book, while still providing maximum value for you guys — my online community.

I took a long look at how members are using their memberships, and after several discussions with members and advisors, I’ve settled on the following:

Announcement for Star & SuperStar Members:

SuperStar Members: I have decided to suspend the SuperStar Membership, at least for now — at the end of 2020, I will revisit it, and decide whether to make the change permanent.

How will this work?

Yearly Members will be able to continue their Membership until the end of their term; at that point, they will be able to continue with a Yearly or Monthly Star Membership.

Monthly Members will receive one last monthly 25-minute Coaching-Healing session with me, and then will be transferred to the Star Membership level for the rest of 2020.

For the next three months (until April 12th, 2020), I will be offering a 30% discount on my 50-min. Coaching-Healing sessions to current active monthly SuperStar Members; you can either divide the 50 minutes into two 25-minute sessions, or use up the whole 50 minutes in a single session.

If you would like to make a more long-term commitment to yourself, I will be offering Coaching Packages at an even greater discount, also for the next three months. After that time, as (now) Star Members, you will be eligible for coaching discounts as discussed below.

Star Members will only see one slight change: as with my online courses, I will make my 50-minute Coaching-Healing sessions available at a 15% discount; if you’d like to commit to receiving longer-term support, Coaching Packages will be available at an even greater discount as long as you remain an active Star Member.

Again, please note that these discounts also apply to those of you whose membership was converted to Star from the SuperStar level (after April, 12th, 2020).

If your Membership is currently suspended & you are a monthly SuperStar Member:
You will be automatically moved to the monthly Star-level Membership; whenever you decide to re-activate your Membership, you will do so as a regular Star Member.

You should receive emails announcing your transfer to the Star Membership level, however you will remain suspended/paused until you decide to re-activate yourself via your Membership Portal (aka “My Account” 😉

I realize this may be a lot to take in — if you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out — in the meantime, I hope this table will make it all clearer:

As I hope you can see, I’ve done my best to use this as an opportunity to create greater value and flexibility for you, my most valued members — and if you have ideas on how I can do an even better job of that, I would love to hear your thoughts. Thank you, as always, for your continued membership of my online community, and I look forward to serving you throughout 2020 and beyond.

PS: All current SuperStar Members will also receive a huge discount on my book, once it’s been published. Star Members will receive discounts as well 😉

Saturn-Pluto alignment — article

On Jan. 12th at 11:59am EST, a Saturn/Pluto alignment in almost 23 degrees of Capricorn became exact. (we’ve been feeling the effects of this aspect since Dec. 5th, 2019; it will remain strong until Feb. 19th, 2020).

The last time we saw a Saturn-Pluto alignment was in November 1982, and then again in May-June, 1983; back then it was in a late degree of Libra, the time before then was in August 1947 in 13º of Leo — as you can see this is quite a long cycle — anywhere from 32 – 38 years, in fact.

It’s time to think seriously about what no longer works for us, both individually, and collectively; this is a time when dedication and commitment to goals runs high and we are more reliably and consistently productive. We derive satisfaction from a job well done, especially if we can readily find meaning in what we are doing — and are more able to concentrate, as we can see ourselves and our purpose very clearly, and also see that our persistence will pay off.

The invitation to adjust our expectations becomes obvious; any trials and tests that emerge now will nudge us onto the right path and challenge us to become stronger and more confident in our own abilities. Do your best to detox and de-stress.

Facing realities that we have conveniently avoided is definitely part of this transit. With any long-term cycle, you can set some intentions around what it is you would like to create, so ask yourself

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 20-26 degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Libra or Cancer? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect.

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, January 13th:

Monday, the Moon remains in fun and attention-loving Leo. It will journey there until 9:06am EST. We may lack objectivity and struggle with backing down or compromising. We all love to be admired — or at the very least acknowledged — for our greatness 🙂

So hand out some compliments — let people know how proud you are of them, tell them how much you love them. Come from the heart in this and all other things… be honest and authentic, as best you can. 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”.

Monday morning, a Sun/Pluto alignment in almost 23 degrees of Capricorn becomes exact at 8:21am EST. We started to feel this aspect from last week, Friday (Jan. 10th) on; it will remain strong until this week Thursday evening (Jan. 16th). This alignment asks of us that we reclaim our authority and make some fundamental changes in our world.

Some of the structures that we built in the past may no longer be solid; they must fall now, to be replaced with something that empowers us. It is necessary to redefine feminine and masculine “powers”. What do you need to acknowledge or embrace? What is rejected or ignored? If you truly had choice in the matter, what kind of future would you want to step into?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 20-26 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries or Libra? If so, you may be more affected by this alignment. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Scorpio (the Sun is the ruler of Leo; Pluto rules Scorpio)

Monday at 8:42am EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a brief 24 minutes until 9:06am EST. Use this intuitive time to make clear choices when it comes to relating to others. Do your best to honor your own creative self-expression when connecting with like-minded people.

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 9:06am EST, the Moon moves into detail-oriented, practical Virgo, where it will journey until Wednesday late morning. We are generous with our time/services and we love to help others. We also have a fondness for science and anything that makes sense in our world — things and knowledge we can apply and use.

Health might come also into focus at this time. We notice the parts that make up the whole; this is a great time to see if our daily routines (eating, work, self-care, etc.) align with our long-term goals.

Monday late morning, a Sun/Saturn alignment in almost 23 degrees of Capricorn becomes exact at 10:15am EST. We started to feel this aspect from last week, Thursday night  (Jan. 9th) on; it will remain strong until this Thursday evening (Jan. 16th). This alignment brings a more serious tone to our commitments with our long-term goals — it’s a time when we are called upon to “get real”.

This is especially true for long-term projects that require diligence and self-discipline, but also applies to anything that requires consistency and a mature approach. We are motivated by the desire to manifest tangible results. We are able to focus and work hard right now, especially if we have a goal in mind, welcoming a sense of discipline, structure or order.

Recommended at this time: making new commitments to old goals, taking care of our responsibilities, making careful use of anything that’s within our control

Do you have your Ascendant, Career point (or any personal planets) in 20-26 degrees Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, or Libra? If so, you may feel the effects of this alignment more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Capricorn  (the Sun rules Leo; Saturn rules Capricorn)

Monday at 1:39pm EST, Venus changes signs from freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius to creative, sensitive Pisces, where she will journey until Feb. 7th. For the next three and a half weeks, we have a chance to connect to other people from our compassionate heart. We may also idealize our relationships a little — we’re feeling quite romantic, and hopeful that our dreams will be fulfilled.

With Venus in Pisces, our love is very accepting — it comes as close to “unconditional” as humans can get. One way this shows up: We root for the underdog. We prefer feeling things out to planning.

As you can imagine, we may spend our money on things that don’t make “sense” — but if we heed intuition and allow for money to flow freely, we may discover that the Universe is always taking care of us 😉

Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Pisces? Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus or Libra? If so,…

Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Pisces? If so, beauty and love will enhance your life for the next three-and-a-half weeks. Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus or Libra? You may feel a strong need for romance or unconditional love — or dream of the ideal relationship. Your finances and values may undergo the spiritual process of releasing control and trusting more to intuition and the flow of life.
.

Tuesday, Jan. 14th:

Tuesday, the Moon remains in detail-oriented, practical Virgo all day (see Monday morning for details).

Tuesday very early morning: if you are awake, this could be a great time to clarify what’s important to us. Ask yourself: What works for me in my daily routines? What doesn’t? What are my expectations or attitudes towards those things? What new vantage point might show me how to easily implement my business goals?

Tuesday early afternoon, we seek a balance between head and heart, facts and imagination, reason and intuition/compassion. That said, if you can achieve that balance, it’s a great day for being of service.

Tuesday late evening, we can potentially accomplish quite a bit: The Moon in Virgo makes a harmonious aspect to Pluto in Capricorn. Virgo and Capricorn are Earth signs, so getting down to business and focusing on the task at hand takes less effort than normal. Our increased ability to discern “what’s what” can support us when digging deeper into our motivations around long-term goals. We are able to tackle anything that requires attention to detail and maybe even implement health routines or other systems that support us long-term.

Also, Tuesday late evening, we are more capable than normal of looking at the details, and focusing on what’s sitting right in front of us that demands to be taken care of, so we can get to the next phase of accomplishment. We are invited to look at all the practical implications; we need to slow down and take our time if we are to manifest something that can stand the test of time — rushing things will most likely backfire right now.

Wednesday. Jan. 15th:

Wednesday, the Moon remains in detail-oriented, practical Virgo until 10:43am EST (see Monday morning for details).

Wednesday at 7:12am EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for 3.5 hours until 10:43am EST. Use this intuitive time to gain clarity about what’s important to you. Ask yourself: What needs to be communicated, and/or organized differently, so my daily routines support my long-term goals? What do I know now, that I can easily implement in my business dealings, that I didn’t know before?

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 Wednesday morning until the late morning ahead of time.

Wednesday at 10:43am EST, the Moon moves into harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra, where it will journey until Friday 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. This Moon placement starts the build up toward the last quarter Moon (exact on Friday morning).

Wednesday early evening, an opportune Venus/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 6:18pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from Monday evening (Jan. 13th) on; it will remain strong until Friday morning (Jan. 17th). This gives us the opportunity to experiment with how we relate to others — to do something different or unusual — freedom plays a big part in this aspect.

Of course, others are experimenting too, so you might experience some unusual or unexpected interactions during this time — it’s a favorable time for social meetings and events — especially anything spiritual or creative in nature. As best as you can, stay open and flexible: fresh air is blowing through your relationships.

We’re also ready to experiment with our financial undertakings — good places to look: all things “tech” (electronics, technology, internet); metaphysics; the arts; group activities. This is not the best time to make long-term financial investments that are not suggested in an intuitive flash 😉

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 0-5 degrees of Pisces, Taurus, Cancer, or Capricorn? 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 Taurus, Libra or Aquarius (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra, Uranus rules Aquarius).

Thursday, Jan. 16th:

Thursday, the Moon remains in harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra all day (see Wednesday late morning for details).

Thursday early 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 to expand your perspectives around any long-term goals your are currently pursuing, and find ways to create win-win outcomes for your various one-on-one relationships.

Thursday at 1:31pm EST, Mercury changes signs from practical, cautious, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn to freedom-loving, forward-thinking, objective Aquarius, where it will journey until Feb. 3rd. For the next 2.5 weeks, we tend to contradict others more quickly, and offer a different perspective. We enjoy intellectual debates. We are quicker and more alert; our powers of observation are particularly strong.

We have something interesting to say, and our perspective on issues can be delightfully unusual and surprisingly insightful. This makes for some great conversations. We are more attracted to scientific and/or metaphysical pursuits right now. Anything that promises progress and advancement for mankind has special appeal.

Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini or Virgo? If so, you will feel a greater need for focusing on your future and any humanitarian causes. Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aquarius? If so, you will most likely feel more chatty for the next 2.5 weeks.

Thursday 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?

Friday, Jan. 17th:

Friday, the Moon remains in harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra until 1:20pm EST (see Wednesday late morning for details).

Friday at 7:58am EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for almost 5.5 hours until 1:20pm EST. Use this intuitive time to make some adjustments in your life. As best as you can, find creative solutions to seemingly unsolvable situations.

Make space both for your one-on-one relationships, and for building your long-term goals one step at a time; 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 Friday morning until the early afternoon ahead of time.

Also, Friday morning, at 7:58am EST, the last Quarter Moon in almost 27 degrees of Libra becomes exact. We started to feel this aspect build from the moment the Moon entered Libra, on Wednesday late morning. The Moon in relationship-oriented, harmony-loving Libra makes a challenging aspect to the Sun in ambitious, goal-oriented Capricorn. This Moon phase brings us closer to Jan 24th, which will bring the New Moon in Aquarius, and ends Eclipse season.

During this last Quarter Moon, we are better served by reviewing relationships we began around the last Lunar Eclipse — in this case, that would be July 16th, 2019 — as opposed to starting new ones. Out of those relationships, what needs last-minute adjustments? What did you discover since that time? What did it mean for you? As best as you can, find creative solutions for anything that comes up, whether internally or with others.

As best as you can, find creative solutions for anything that comes up (whether internally or with others).

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 25-29 degrees of Libra, Capricorn, Aries or Cancer? If so, you are more affected by this month’s last Quarter Moon. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer, since the Sun rules Leo and the Moon rules Cancer.

Friday at 1:20pm EST, the Moon moves into passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio, where it will journey until Sunday early evening. 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 therefore an excellent time to look at “old” fears, limiting habits or emotional attachments, especially those stemming from past traumas.

Moon in Scorpio tends to run right over ambiguity — it’s “in or out”, “with us or against us”, “love me or leave me”. It can therefore 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 as best you can, 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.

Friday early evening, an opportune Mercury/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 6:08pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from Thursday on; it will be strong until Sunday morning. We have an opportunity to bring healing energy to our concrete mind and to our thoughts. We also have a chance to heal insecurities in our verbal, in-person, social media or email interactions.

We are better able now to tune out that automatic/critical inner voice, in favor of more loving and compassionate structures for thinking and communicating. By bringing love and understanding to our thinking processes, we have a chance to move beyond entrenched habits, like “impatient self-talk”, or the use of aggressive language (swear words for example).

Here’s a few good “chew toys” for your mind at this time: What was your family’s attitude towards communication? Toward speaking up for yourself? What if you tried a kinder approach for a bit? Does your inner dialog really have to repeat what they said when you were 3 or 5 years old? What if you tried using a gentler voice for the next ten minutes or so?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 0-4 degrees of Aquarius, Aries, Gemini, or Sagittarius? 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 or Virgo (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo).

Saturday, Jan. 18th:

Saturday, the Moon remains in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio all day (see Friday early afternoon for details).

Saturday very early morning, a challenging Mercury/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 3:32am EST. We started to feel this aspect build from Thursday on, it will remain strong until Sunday night. This aspect creates some tension in our lives; we may feel anxious or stressed by a situation involving financial stability, group affiliations, or long-term visions.

We’ll likely want to think outside the box. We may also want to make some changes to a life situation or vision that no longer fits. Again: We are being called to play a bigger game and may feel overwhelmed by what it all means.

Our minds may prefer things to be cool and calm, detached and rational, but at the same time we feel a great desire for progress and breakthroughs. The tension between these two desires could leave us feeling irritable, mainly because we also tend to take things quite personally right now; the best way to manage this is to channel some of that nervous irritable energy into constructive pursuits.

Since there’s a tendency right now to challenge established thought, or play devil’s advocate, it also helps to get in touch with our inner truth. Use your breath to turn any fear into excitement — and let yourself visualize a bigger dream.

Expect the unexpected, plan on disruption, revelation and breakthroughs — during this transit, the best mind is an open mind. As best as you can, go with the flow, staying open to the new and unexpectedly different. Could you allow whatever is happening to stimulate new approaches?

As you can perhaps imagine, this is not a time to make major decisions, especially if they are hasty 😉 You can think of this as “reorganizing” time for the mind, like moving your furniture around.  If you feel yourself resisting the reshuffle, do your best to relax — and maybe even sit back and enjoy the show.

And as always, if all else fails, take it one moment at a time… Rather than jumping to conclusions, get grounded in the here and now — bringing awareness to your breath (or body) is a good way to do this.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in the following: 0-5 degrees of  Aquarius, Taurus, LeoScorpio, or 29 degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, or Libra? 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 Aquarius (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; and Uranus rules Aquarius).

Saturday morning: we feel good about making deeper connections and may have an opportunity to explore our long-term goals from a new perspective. As best as you can, release any fears or traumas that keep you stuck in the past, and instead widen your viewpoint and deepen your connection to whatever you feel deeply passionate about (for the long-term)

Saturday early evening, we are likely to experience a sense of ease and flow, but may need to slow down and allow our feelings to come through. A gentle approach is best. We feel good when coming from the heart and making deeper connections with others. Being open to receiving, trusting the process and going with the flow are key!

Sunday, Jan. 19th:

Sunday, the Moon remains in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio, until 5:41pm EST (see Friday early afternoon for details).

Sunday early morning, we feel good about making deeper connections; we’ll have an opportunity to become fully committed to a project or task, something that might serve us long-term.

Sunday morning, we get an opportunity to dig deeper — and also to focus on practicalities and long-term plans. As best as you can, bring a sense of empowerment and focus to your business dealings, release any fears or traumas that keep you stuck in the past, and deepen your connection to what you feel deeply passionate about.

Sunday at 4:22pm EST, we enter a brief Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 1 hour until 5:41pm EST. This intuitive time provides an opportunity to look at your ability to go deeper within your intimate relationships and financial partnerships; it’s also a good time to get in touch with your power to transform old behaviors and fears, and bring those abilities to your long-term commitments.

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 Sunday late afternoon ahead of time.

Sunday at 5:41pm EST, the Moon moves into optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius, where it will journey until next week, Tuesday night. New experiences and adventures satisfy a deep emotional need. The Sagittarius Moon persuades us to come from intuition and think in a broader manner.

We seek meaning and ideas that expand upon the “here and now”; we pursue truth and a new vision — the big picture, rather than the details. Spontaneity is key, we’d rather improvise than plan; this may tip into just “winging it”. We could also overdo or overstate.

Sunday late evening, we might find ourselves wanting to explore a new healing modality for body, mind, and heart, aimed at a renewing our enthusiasm for life. We are capable of being compassionate and forgiving with ourselves at this time — and a gentle and holistic approach is best.

Also, Sunday late evening, we experience a need for 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 mentally explore and go beyond what we already know — and on the other hand, the need for breakthroughs or change connected to the physical plane.

We need to ask ourselves here: What might become possible if I got 5% more comfortable with being uncomfortable? Or 5% more comfortable embracing uncertainty?

And…

A heads up for next Monday (Jan. 20th): the Moon remains in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius all day (see Sunday early evening-Jan. 19th for details). In the late morning, at 9:55am EST, the Sun changes signs from Capricorn to Aquarius, where it will journey until Feb. 18th. At 11:46pm EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 24 hours until 12:00am EST Tuesday night/Wednesday very early morning. More about all the details in next week’s forecast 🙂

What No Longer Works — Forecast for Jan. 6th – 12th

 

This week’s headline items: the Uranus station intensifies on Monday; a powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Cancer becomes exact on Friday afternoon; Uranus ends its 5-month Retrograde phase (in Taurus) on Friday evening; finally, a long-term alignment between Saturn & Pluto in Capricorn becomes exact on Sunday late morning/early afternoon.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday morning (for a little over 14 hours), Wednesday late afternoon (for almost 10.5 hours) and Friday evening (for a little over 12 hours).

Before we get to this week’s forecast, let me make one announcement:

Last chance to register for the first Forecasting Forum of the year! We will talk about the upcoming Lunar Eclipse in Cancer and the Saturn/Pluto alignment in Capricorn, in relationship to our own birth charts!

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Jan. 6th:

Monday, the Moon remains in steady, peaceful Taurus. Where it will journey until 9:11pm EST. 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 getting in touch with whatever delights our senses 😉

Monday at 7:08am EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 14 hours until 9:11pm EST. Use this intuitive time to empower each other in regards to earthly issues and mutually support each other in practical ways.

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 morning until the late evening ahead of time.

Monday at 9:11pm EST, the Moon moves into chatty, versatile Gemini, where it will journey until Thursday very early morning. For the next two days, 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 🙂

Also, Monday, the Uranus Station intensifies in 2.5 degrees of Taurus until Jan. 14th. It will come to a complete halt on Friday (Jan. 10th) in 2.5 degrees of Taurus, ending its 5-month retrograde phase (more about that on Friday…). 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. 23rd (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 2.5 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 …

Is your Sun-sign or Ascendant in Taurus? Or perhaps your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 0-5 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius or Leo? If so, you are more affected by this Station phase.

Tuesday, Jan. 7th:

Tuesday, the Moon remains in chatty, versatile Gemini all day (see Monday late evening for details).

Tuesday very early morning, an opportune Sun/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 1:21am EST. We start to feel this aspect build from Sunday very early morning (Jan. 5th) on; it will be strong until Thursday very early morning (Jan. 10th). This aspect is an opportunity both to dissolve what no longer serves us, and to connect to our intuition. We definitely feel inspired. It’s also a great time to bring a sense of flow and faith to long-term plans.

Our capacity for compassion (both toward ourselves and others) is quite strong, especially if we are able to acknowledge it. Dreams and reality find a way to work together now — any spiritual or creative endeavors that are started during this time will most likely do very well — and it feels great to donate time or money to favored causes.

Remember that this is an “opportunity” — it isn’t just handed to us, we have to make it happen.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 14-19 degrees of Capricorn, Pisces, Taurus or Scorpio? 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 Leo or Pisces (the Sun rules Leo; Neptune is the ruler of Pisces).

Tuesday very early morning, a somewhat challenging Mars/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 3:13am EST. We started to feel this aspect from Sunday evening (Jan. 5th) on; it will be strong until Wednesday evening. We feel uneasy about something, almost awkward — and we need to make a choice. An inner awareness needs to be developed in order to see what needs adjusting — this aspect calls for flexibility.

We experience an internal stress between our masculine energies (assertiveness/ aggression) and our need to express our unique spark (and the desire to make a difference).

We are being asked to go within and look at our personal goals and desires — and reach a new perspective on how we go about achieving them. Are we driven by personal resistance and rebellion, or motivated to positively impact humanity?

Once we get clear about our deepest motivations, we will discover new ways to move forward and embrace our unique talents and values in a healthy way, while demonstrating our strength and power more authentically, from a place of love and abundance, rather than fear and limitation.

How might you get in touch with your inner genius? What might “a passionate connection to your vision of a future” look like? What might be possible if you could get 5% more comfortable with being uncomfortable?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 1-4 degrees of Sagittarius or Taurus? 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 Aries or Aquarius (Mars is the ruler of Aries; Uranus rules Aquarius ).

Wednesday, Jan. 8th:

Wednesday, the Moon remains in chatty, versatile Gemini all day (see Monday late evening for details).

Wednesday very early morning, we are required to make some adjustments — and we may need to do a little stretching and growing, when it comes to our inner or emotional experiences. As best as you can, be gentle with yourself and others, seek to understand before seeking to be understood.

Wednesday morning, an opportune Mercury/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 8:03am EST. We started to feel this aspect from Tuesday morning on; it will remain strong until Thursday 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 Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 14-19 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).

Wednesday afternoon, we may experience some internal discomfort and need to make some inner adjustments. We feel nudged toward being responsible and building something that will last long-term.

Also, Wednesday afternoon, feels a little uneasy. We need to develop an inner awareness around our two seemingly opposite pulls: on the one hand, a strong desire for accomplishment, on the other, our need to make connections and exchange information.

We are asked to bring awareness to whatever it is we feel most passionate about: Are we after superficial exchanges? Or intense and authentic emotion? As best as you can, make adjustments as needed, and drop any self-judgment.

Wednesday at 5:16pm EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for almost 10.5 hours until 3:43am EST (Thursday very early morning). Use this intuitive time to connect with others, socialize, and share information with them.

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 Wednesday late afternoon until Thursday very early morning ahead of time.

Thursday, Jan. 9th:

Thursday, the Moon remains in chatty, versatile Gemini and VoC until 3:43am EST; at that time, the Moon moves into protective, nurturing Cancer, where it will journey until Saturday 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 glass is filled before letting others drink from it, otherwise you might start to feel drained and resentful. This Moon placement starts the build up to the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse (exact Friday afternoon).

Thursday (all day until midnight) is your last chance to take advantage of the Early Bird Special for the the first Forecasting Forum of the year! We will talk about the upcoming Lunar Eclipse in Cancer and the Saturn/Pluto alignment in Capricorn, in relationship to our own birth charts! Click here to register now!

Thursday morning, 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.

Also, Thursday morning, 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.

Thursday late morning/early afternoon, requires some inner adjustments. We feel uneasy or awkward and need to make a choice, one that demands we develop inner awareness around two very different urges: on the one hand, the desire to be active and engage in an adventure that expands our current horizons — and on the other hand, the need to nurture ourselves and stay in touch with our feeling body.

Thursday evening: we are invited to balance our need for what’s familiar and feels comfortable against our desire to tap into a greater wisdom that helps us grow in our career goals and expand our dealings out there in the world.

Friday, Jan. 10th:

Friday, the Moon remains in protective, nurturing Cancer all day (see Thursday very early morning for details).

Friday late morning, a Sun/Mercury alignment in almost 20 degrees of Capricorn becomes exact at 10:19am EST. We started to feel this aspect from Sunday evening (Jan. 5th) on; it will be strong until next week Tuesday evening (Jan. 14th). This aspect indicates a confident mind and an analytical approach to life. Intelligence and communication abilities are strong at this time; however, we may not listen as well as the other speaks — we might be too busy thinking about what to say next.

As this alignment takes place in Capricorn, we may be particularly stubborn or attached, but it may not always serve us to dig our heals in.

 We want an active role in communications — it’s very hard for us to passively listen and absorb information right now. What we say or write now has impact, so as best as you can, choose your words wisely.

If people hung on your every word, what would you say then? What would you hold back from saying? 

Our opinions are strong and our thinking independent — and we’re proud of both — our egos may therefore get bruised if we don’t feel “heard”. As best as you can, express yourself fully, knowing that others may have different opinion and that’s ok.


Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 17-23 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries or Libra? 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)

Friday afternoon, at 2:21pm EST, the Moon opposes the Sun (in 20 degrees of Cancer/Capricorn) — this is a Lunar Eclipse becoming exact.  As mentioned above, the entrance of the Moon into Cancer (on Thursday, very early in the morning) began the energetic build up towards this powerful Full Moon. This Full Moon is actually the second of two Eclipses in a row; the first one was the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn on Dec. 25/26th.

Eclipses are always powerfully connected to the Moon Nodes and thus to our Soul’s Journey. Relationships of all kinds are highlighted during this time — but with this powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse, there is a particularly strong emphasis on family- and business-relationships. If you’d like to learn more, and as a Member of my online community, click here to watch my Lunar Eclipse video.

Lots of planets are involved in this powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse chart — Mercury, Saturn, Pluto, Uranus and Neptune — and all play an important role, so buckle up! More about the specifics in regards to all of these planets in a moment….

This Full Moon is also the first Lunar Eclipse in Cancer since the Moon Nodes moved into Cancer/Capricorn in late 2018. This puts an emphasis on taking a nurturing approach towards ourselves and the collective. With Eclipses this is a longer term process — in this case, a process that will last until November 2020.

Let’s take a look at the polarities involved hereThe Moon in protective, feeling-oriented Cancer opposes the Sun in practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn. We have a heightened sense that something must be brought into balance and reintegrated; the balance in question is between the experience of our feelings and emotional needs (symbolized by Cancer), versus our outer obligations or material, practical goals (Capricorn).

It’s important to realize that we all have limitations and challenges in life — and when we approach those in a nurturing way, taking care of our feeling body, our inner baby, and allow ourselves to receive support from “family connections”, we are more likely to overcome those challenges and be realistic about our and other people’s limitations.

Ask yourself: How am I balancing the demands of my outer and inner life? Home life vs. career? Where am I able to be mature and self-reliant — and also contribute? Where am I giving too much? Not enough?

Any Full Moon also has us look more closely at the denser vibrations or shadow components of the energies involved. With Cancer, this is our ability to receive and feel safe from within, but what protected us in the past may no longer work — our needs may have changed over time.

Ask yourself: When do I have the tendency to hold on to the past? Where am I holding on simply because it is familiar? When do I resist change? What happens when I don’t allow myself to feel my feelings? When do I react to life vs. respond?

This brings me to mention a webinar I have available for purchase on my website right now: It’s called React vs. RespondWhere in the chart can we learn about our emotional maturity? If you haven’t seen it yet, definitely take a look at it… click here for more info!

Also, this 60min. webinar is yours for FREE between now and Jan. 31st, if you upgrade your Membership to Star-level during this time (so before Jan. 31st): again, click here for more info!

With Capricorn, we need to take a look at those parts of ourselves that are domineering, rigid, unforgiving, self-servingly ambitious, status-seeking, and hierarchical.

As best as you can, be really honest with yourself, and ask: How important is…  To read the whole article and get all the Coaching Questions for this month’s Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse, click here. (will be available by Jan. 8th)

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 18-22 degrees of Cancer, Capricorn, Aries and Libra? If so, you are more affected by this month’s Full Moon. 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).

Friday at 6:58pm EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 12 hours until 7:16am EST Saturday morning. Use this intuitive time to remain flexible and practice self-care — take good care of your emotional and physical body — that way, you’ll remain able to empower yourself and others.

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 Friday evening until Saturday morning ahead of time.

Last but not least, Friday, at 8:49pm EST, Uranus comes to a halt in 2.5 degrees of Taurus, turning direct again after its 5-month retrograde phase. We’ve had 5 months to re-evaluate certain things: humanitarian goals, group causes, issues around freedom (possibly financial freedom). We’ve also reflected on our vision for the future, and where the obstacles to that vision might lie.

We are now ready to take into the world all that we have learned over the last 5 months, and make some progress. Uranus is the archetype of revolutionary change, daring us to think way, way outside of the box.

Uranus will be back to its usual speed by Jan. 23rd; at that point you could say its “Change or be changed” — change is inevitable, so it might as well be change you’ve chosen consciously.

We may find that we disagree with other people’s values. We may be restless, even anxious, and therefore feel pressure to act (or react) regarding others — these feelings could also be connected to financial decisions or partnerships.

Note that Uranus also rules electronics, technology and the internet; these may all be influenced by the planet’s slower movement.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 0-5 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, or Aquarius?. If so, you felt this station phase quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aquarius (Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius).

Saturday, Jan. 11th:

Saturday, the Moon remains in protective, nurturing Cancer and VoC until 7:16am EST (see Thursday very early morning and Friday evening for details).

Saturday very early morning, requires some inner adjustments. We feel uneasy or awkward and need to make a choice, one that demands we develop inner awareness around two very different urges: on the one hand, the desire to connect to like-minded people that share our vision — and on the other hand, the need to nurture ourselves and stay in touch with our feeling body.

Saturday at 7:16am EST, the Moon moves into fun and attention-loving Leo, where it will journey until next week, Monday morning (Jan. 13th). We may lack objectivity and struggle with backing down or compromising. We all love to be admired — or at the very least acknowledged — for our greatness 🙂

So hand out some compliments — let people know how proud you are of them, tell them how much you love them. Come from the heart in this and all other things… be honest and authentic, as best you can. 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-and-a-half 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?

Saturday late morning, things flow nicely and we feel excited about new healing modalities. There’s an opportunity here to be compassionate toward ourselves and others and for connecting to our inner child. As best as you can, have fun when connecting with others, bring a healing quality to the table by tapping into your inner joy, explore things on a holistic level, and take a risk.

Also, Saturday late morning, we may feel pulled in two quite different directions: On the one hand, we experience a need for connecting with our inner child-energy (creative self-expressions and joy), on the other hand, we want to make space for pursuing our financial vision — and we also want to break free from outdated value systems.

As such, we may have to address what we value in both in others, and in ourselves (which informs our self-worth); as best as you can, make adjustments and find creative solutions when it comes to these energies.

Saturday late afternoon, things flow nicely; we feel excited about new adventures. We have an opportunity to connect, explore, and become part of something exciting.

Saturday late evening: we are invited to make some internal adjustments — we may want to have some fun, but also explore our long-term goals and accomplishments

Sunday early morning, a Mercury/Saturn alignment in a little over 22.5 degrees of Capricorn becomes exact at 4:51am EST. We started to feel this aspect from Friday morning on; it will remain strong until next week, Tuesday (Jan. 14th). This connection strengthens our ability to make realistic decisions connected to our need for achievement and mastery. We are more able to come from a place of integrity and maturity when planning anything long-term.

We prefer to have serious conversations with others that move us forward, closer to a common goal. It’s an excellent period for reviewing, reassessing, perfecting, and improving our thinking patterns, long-term goals, and path towards mastery. Even though we might have a more negative or critical outlook initially, this alignment serves the purpose of reaching a balanced, mature, and realistic state.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (MC) or personal planets in 19-26 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries or Libra? If so, you will feel this alignment quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo or Capricorn (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn).

Sunday early morning, a Mercury/Pluto alignment in almost 23 degrees of Capricorn becomes exact at 5:14am EST. We started to feel this aspect from Friday on; it will remain strong until next week Tuesday (Jan. 14th). With this alignment, an all-or-nothing attitude is very likely. We have tremendous mental focus — which could tip into obsession.

Choose love over fear whenever possible. Connect to the things you feel passionate about — and connect to others, empowering them with your passions. As best as you can, choose your words carefully — if possible, speak from that deeply connected and empowered place.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 20-26 degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Libra or Cancer? If so, you may feel more connected to this alignment. 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 rules Scorpio)

Sunday late morning, a Saturn/Pluto alignment in almost 23 degrees of Capricorn becomes exact at 11:59am EST. We started to feel this aspect from Dec. 5th, 2019 on; it will remain strong until Feb. 19th, 2020.

The last time we saw a Saturn-Pluto alignment was in November 1982, and then again in May-June, 1983; back then it was in a late degree of Libra, the time before then was in August 1947 in 13º of Leo — so as you can see this is quite a long cycle — anywhere from 32-38 years, in fact.

It’s time to think seriously about what no longer works for us, both individually, and collectively; this is a time when dedication and commitment to goals runs high and we are more reliably and consistently productive, deriving satisfaction from a job well done, especially if we can readily find meaning in what we are doing. We are more able to concentrate, as we can see ourselves and our purpose very clearly, and our persistence will pay off.

The invitation to adjust our expectations becomes obvious; any trials and tests that emerge now will nudge us onto the right path and challenge us to become stronger and more confident in our own abilities. Do your best to detox and de-stress.

With any long-term cycle, you can set some Intentions around what it is you would like to create, so ask yourself: What “old” structures in my life are not in alignment with my Soul Purpose? Where in my life do I feel an inner pressure to commit to something that feels emotionally authentic to me and requires me to grow up and stand in my power? Where am I asked to face my fears and some harder issues?

What needs to be transformed or discarded in order to find healthy ways to support myself and others — even considering everyone’s limitations? How can I take a nurturing approach to my current limitations? To the limitations of other people? How might I develop a practice around my understanding of what I am capable of and not capable of?

You can also read my article on the subject here.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 20-26 degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Libra or Cancer? 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 Capricorn or Scorpio (Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn; Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio).

And…

A heads up for next Monday (Jan. 13th): the Moon remains in fun and attention-loving Leo until 9:06am EST (see Saturday morning for details). In the morning, a Sun/Pluto alignment in almost 23 degrees of Capricorn becomes exact at 8:21am EST; we started to feel this aspect from Jan. 9th on; it will remain strong until Jan 16th. At 8:42am EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a brief 24 minutes until 9:06am EST; at that time, the Moon moves into detail-oriented, practical Virgo, where it will journey until Wednesday late morning (Jan. 15th). In the late morning, a Sun/Saturn alignment in almost 23 degrees of Capricorn becomes exact at 10:15am EST; we started to feel this aspect from Jan. 9th on; it will remain strong until Jan. 16th. And, at 1:39pm EST, Venus changes signs from Aquarius to Pisces, where she will journey until Feb. 7th. More about all the details in next week’s forecast 🙂

Happy New Decade! — Forecast for Dec. 30th – Jan. 5th

 

This week’s headline items: Uranus starts to slow down (station) on Monday, getting ready to end it’s 5-month Retrograde phase; the first Quarter Moon in Aries becomes exact on Thursday late evening, and Mars changes signs from Scorpio to Sagittarius on Friday early morning. We are still in Eclipse Season (and will be until Jan. 24th).

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday early morning (for a little over 5 hours), Wednesday late evening (almost 2 hours) and Friday evening (15 hours).

Before we get to this week’s forecast, let me mention this one last time:

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Dec. 30th:

Monday, the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius. It will journey there, until 10:41am EST. 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 5:24am EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 5 hours until 10:41am EST. We are experiencing two quite different needs, pulling us in different directions: On the one hand, we feel a strong need to break the rules and move towards our future visions.

On the other hand, we want to connect to what feels familiar and comfortable. Do your best to use this intuitive time to make adjustments, slow things down a little, and find creative solutions that honor both drives. 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 morning ahead of time.

Monday at 10:41am EST, the Moon moves into creative, sensitive Pisces, where it will journey until Wednesday late evening. This Moon placement often finds us more sensitive, intuitive, idealistic and imaginative than normal. We also have a greater capacity for compassion, sympathy and affection for all — but especially for those who suffer or can be regarded as the underdog.

But… that very idealism could also be our downfall at this time: We tend to see the best in everyone and everything, and when reality doesn’t match our idyllic vision, we might feel upset and even victimized by those harsh realities. A way out of this is to channel our idealism into spiritual or creative endeavors.

It’s also a great time for releasing fears — especially the ones based on a sense of separation — and experiencing “oneness”. Feelings tend to flow more freely; as best as you can, let them — in fact, “going with the flow” is the best way to go for the next couple of days.

Monday late afternoon, a harmonious Mercury/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 5:22pm EST. We started to feel this aspect  build from last week, Saturday evening (Dec. 28th) on; it will remain strong until this Wednesday evening (Jan. 1st). This aspect supports a connection between our higher mind and our day-to-day mind. We are able to receive inspiration from higher places and maybe even look into the future.

We are able to communicate our vision for a better future; insights arise from these communications. Original, creative insights and ideas can appear out of nowhere; as best as you can, stay open to these unique “downloads” — they might change how you see and proceed with life 😉

This is a good time to communicate online, engage in computer-related activities or scientific projects, and also for anything metaphysical. Group activities like Meetups are great things to be involved with right now — especially if they allow us to share our vision for a better financial future.

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

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 0-6 degree of Capricorn, Taurus, or Virgo? If so, you will feel especially blessed by this connection. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo or Aquarius (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius)

Tuesday, Dec. 31st:

Tuesday, the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces all day (see Monday late morning for details).

Monday night/Tuesday very early morning, Uranus starts to slow down (station). It will come to a halt in 2.5º of Taurus (on Jan. 10th — ending its 5-month Retrograde phase). Uranus will move more slowly for almost four weeks between now and Jan. 23rd, anything connected to its energy will come into our awareness quite strongly: We have to face what this planet is trying to communicate to us.

Uranus is all about breaking away from traditional values, 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 3.5 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.

What might this be for you? Where do you feel the desire to break free? If “Freedom” were an important value for you, how might it show up in your life? Where have you denied yourself permission to be free? Unique? Simply yourself?

With this much erratic energy moving through us, we are best off honoring this movement, and “shaking it out”. Rather than expecting everyone’s values to be the same, it will serve us now to focus on aligning our own unique visions and desires with certain partnerships, creating deeper, more trusting connections wherever we can.

This also provides an opportunity to look at how free we truly feel within our financial partnerships and intimate relationships. Are you expressing your individuality to the fullest in those partnerships? Are you connecting to a larger vision? Is anything holding you back? What did you discover about your unique visions, values, and financial freedoms these past 5 months?

Is your Sun-sign or Ascendant in Aquarius? Or do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 0-5 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius or Leo? If so, you are more affected by this station.

Tuesday late afternoon, we get an opportunity to be wholly present; also to bring a greater awareness to our current relationship to self-mastery. This is a great time to be looking for practical advice around our long-term goals. As best as you can, bring a sense of flow and faith to your business dealings, and allow yourself to take it one step at a time.

Tuesday evening, we feel more sensitive and need to slow down a little. This is a great time for spiritual or creative endeavors. Energy work, or anything that requires our intuitive side, will work best for the next several hours.

Since this is also the last day of 2019 (and also of the decade), I would like to invite you to prepare for the coming year! Get ready for 2020! Enjoy this 15.min. teaser from our “All of 2020!” Forum — Click here to watch the Teaser

Wednesday, Jan. 1st:

On Wednesday, the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces, until 11:00pm EST (see Monday late morning for details). We are entering 2020 with compassion in our hearts and a connection to the energy field all around us. As best as you can, visualize a future that you would like to step into — visualize a decade aligned with your dreams — and do your best to align those dreams for the highest and best interest of everyone involved.

Wednesday morning, we get an opportunity to be very present — and also to focus on practicalities and long-term plans. As best as you can, bring a sense of flow and faith to your business dealings.

Also, Wednesday morning, we have the opportunity to be guided by inspiration, and fully commit to a project or task that might serve us long-term. As best as you can, listen and trust to the subtle messages in your heart, that stir you towards success.

Wednesday late evening, at 9:14pm EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for almost 2 hours until 11pm EST. Use this intuitive time to connect with others (and yourself) with gentleness and compassion. Taking actions on deeply transformative and spiritual endeavors are favored right now.

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 Wednesday late evening ahead of time.

Wednesday at 11:00pm EST, the Moon movies into pioneering, fast-paced Aries, where it will journey until Saturday late 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. This Moon Placement starts the build up to the first Quarter Moon (exact Thursday late evening).

Thursday, Jan. 2nd:

Thursday, the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries all day (see Wednesday late evening for details).

Thursday 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.

Thursday late morning, a Mercury/Jupiter alignment in almost 7 degrees of Capricorn becomes exact at 11:42am EST. We started to feel this aspect build from Tuesday morning on, it will be strong until Saturday evening. This alignment brings optimism and a tendency to talk and think more; it favors planning and prioritizing business goals, submitting applications and forms, and test taking.

We can more readily exercise good judgment, take a more philosophical approach to thinking, and find it easier to bring wholeness and order into our business dealings. There is a sense of mental expansion; we see our long-term goals as a place of adventure and personal growth.

We are optimistic and enthusiastic — and things tend to go well as a result — it’s all about thinking big and planning it out. What if expanding our conception of authority, society in general, and government contribution helped us be more peaceful and calm? What if that helped us manifest our desires?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 4-10 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries or Libra? If so, you will feel this alignment quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo, or Sagittarius (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo, so those folks will always be affected more strongly by Mercury’s movements and aspects; Jupiter rules Sagittarius) 

Thursday late evening, the first Quarter Moon in a little over 12 degrees of Aries becomes exact. We started to feel this aspect build from the moment the Moon entered Aries Wednesday late evening. The Moon in pioneering, enthusiastic, fast-paced Aries makes a challenging aspect to the Sun practical, cautious, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn.

Last week (Dec. 26th) saw a powerful New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Capricorn. If we set some intentions on Dec. 28th or 29th, we are now ready to make some adjustments. This is a time to stretch and grow — and create some forward momentum — in fact, we may feel compelled to act, stirring up anxiety or overwhelm, so just go one breath at a time.

Remember, we’re still in Eclipse Season until Jan. 24th, and thus don’t have all the information we need to move brand-new projects forward yet. Allow for changes, remain flexible and adaptable, and find creative solutions in day-to-day interactions with others. Allow also for new downloads and for the release of “old” codes and conditioning. Simply put: an open mind and heart will serve us best (that’s true in general, but especially true until Eclipse season ends 😉

Another thing to remember: if something is beginning or ending in a way that seems organic… allow it to be. As best as you can, observe your feelings and stay grounded in the “here and now”. Connect to your intuition and inner wisdom; they will help carry you through this period. We are receiving a consciousness upgrade — that’s a good thing!


Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 10-14 degrees of Aries, Capricorn, Libra or Cancer? If so, you will feel the effects of this first Quarter Moon more strongly than otherwise. 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)

Friday, Jan. 3rd:

Friday, the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries all day (see Wednesday late evening for details).

Friday early morning, at 4:37am EST, Mars changes signs from passionate Scorpio to adventurous Sagittarius, where it will journey, until Feb. 16th. With this placement, we are going to feel a little restless, maybe even impatient at times — we want to explore. This is a great time to get into sports or some athletic activity. We have so many ideas and interests that we can’t just stick to one thing right now, so we may have several projects running at the same time.

It’s a time when we prefer to improvise and just wing it. That makes it more fun and brings a sense of adventure to our day. We also like to have some good debates with others, persuading them to share our beliefs. It’s not the best time to get too serious about life, as we prefer to feel free-flowing and excited about new things — especially when we can learn something new 😉

If you have an Aries Sun-sign or Rising-sign, you are going to feel more adventurous and probably more impatient. You may want to explore new sports or physical activities. If you are a Sagittarius Sun-sign or Rising sign, you will feel quite energized for the next 12 weeks. Channeling this energy into physical exercise or a project might be advisable. 

Friday late morning, we have an opportunity to connect with like-minded people and move a project forward that is dear to us. It’s time for action: What small (or even large) action steps could you take? Or is it a question of “who” rather than “how”?

Friday 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?

Friday at 8:18pm EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for 15 hours until 11:15am EST (Saturday late morning). Use this intuitive time to make some adjustments and find creative ways to work with the energies at play: On the one hand, as best as you can, follow your inner compass and take care of your own needs; on the other hand, deepen your authentic connection to whatever you are building long-term.

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 Friday evening until Saturday late morning ahead of time.

Saturday, Jan. 4th:

Saturday, the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries and VoC until 11:15am EST; at that time, the Moon moves into steady, peaceful Taurus, where it will journey until next week, Monday late evening (Jan. 6th).

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 getting in touch with whatever delights our senses 😉

Saturday early afternoon, we are invited to make some internal adjustments: We may want to have some peace and quiet, while at the same time, wanting to connect with others and have an outdoors adventure.

Saturday late afternoon, if possible, connect with people that can support your projects on a practical level, and share with them what you have going on.

Sunday, Jan. 5th:

Sunday, the Moon remains in steady, peaceful Taurus all day (see Saturday late morning for details).

On Sunday very early morning, it is best to slow down a little and explore what’s sitting right in front of us that needs to be taken care of, so we can gain a new perspective around our goals and accomplishments; expanding too fast will backfire right now.

Sunday late morning, is a great time to share about earthly issues and support each other in practical ways.

Sunday late afternoon, a harmonious Mars/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 4:53pm EST. We started feeling this aspect build from Tuesday evening on; it will be strong until next week, Friday. This gives us a chance to learn to accept our desire and anger as valid — so that when we express them, we do so naturally and confidently, without harming ourselves or others — simply allowing ourselves to feel anger and talk about it, just as we would about joy.

Ask yourself: What if I brought understanding and compassion to anger or assertiveness? What if my desires were valid? We may also find that a humorous or courageous approach can carry us through feelings of insecurity or shame. We’d like to go beyond what we already know to gain new perspectives, learn about a greater vision of the masculine nature, or simply bring healing where we believe it’s needed.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in the following: 0-5 degrees of Sagittarius, Aries, Leo or 28-29 degrees of Scorpio, Pisces, or Cancer? If so, you will be most blessed by this aspect. Or perhaps your Ascendant or Sun-sign is in Aries? If so, you are especially blessed by this aspect.

Sunday evening, we have an opportunity to meet our need for material comfort with a gentler, more intuitive approach. Inner and outer beauty is key!

And…

A heads up for next Monday (Jan. 6th): the Moon remains in steady, peaceful Taurus until 9:11pm EST (see Saturday late morning for details). At 7:08am EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 14 hours until 9:11pm EST; at that time, the Moon moves into chatty, versatile Gemini, where it will journey until Thursday very early morning (Jan. 9th). Monday night/Tuesday very early morning, an opportune Sun/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 1:21am EST; we start to feel this aspect build from Jan. 4th on; it will be strong until Jan. 8th. Lastly, Uranus’ Station intensifies until Jan. 14th. More about all the details in next week’s forecast 🙂

The Pursuit of Self-Mastery — Forecast for Dec. 23rd – 29th

 

This week’s headline items: The Chiron Station ends on Tuesday, a powerful New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Capricorn becomes exact on Wednesday night/Thursday very early morning, on Friday night/Saturday very early morning, it’s time to start setting our Solar Eclipse Intentions, and Mercury changes signs from Sagittarius to Capricorn late on Saturday evening.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday until 11:34am EST, Wednesday morning (for almost 10.5 hours) and Friday afternoon (for a little over 8 hours).

Before we get to this week’s forecast, let me give you this:

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Dec. 23rd:

Monday, the Moon remains in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio and VoC until 11:34am EST. 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 therefore an excellent time to look at “old” fears, limiting habits or emotional attachments, especially those stemming from past traumas.

Monday late morning, a challenging Sun/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 10:17am EST. We started to feel this aspect from last week, Friday evening on; it will remain strong until this Thursday evening. This asks us to stretch ourselves and expand from within. We might feel less confident about who we are, and have a hard time projecting a social “front”. Our conditioning and wounded sense of Self may be out of harmony with each other.

As best as you can, take this as an opportunity to make space for feeling vulnerable or emotional without seeing yourself as weak or “less than”. It is perfectly ok to be yourself and feel insecure once in a while; as best as you can, bring compassion and love to yourself and others. After all, we are all human…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (MC) or personal planets in the following: 0-5 degree of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, Libra, or 28-29 degrees of Sagittarius, Pisces, Virgo, or Gemini? If so, you will feel the effects of this aspect more strongly than otherwise. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo (the Sun rules Leo).

Monday at 11:34am EST, the Moon moves into optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius, where it will journey until Wednesday afternoon. New experiences and adventures satisfy a deep emotional need. The Sagittarius Moon persuades us to come from intuition and think in a broader manner.

We seek meaning and ideas that expand upon the “here and now”; we pursue truth and a new vision — the big picture, rather than the details. Spontaneity is key, we’d rather improvise than plan; this may tip into just “winging it”. We could also overdo or overstate.

Monday afternoon, we might find ourselves wanting to explore a new healing modality for body, mind, and heart, aimed at a renewing our enthusiasm for life. We are capable of being compassionate and forgiving with ourselves at this time — and a gentle and holistic approach is best.

Monday late afternoon: we experience a need for 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 mentally explore and go beyond what we already know — and on the other hand, the need for breakthroughs or change connected to the physical plane.

We need to ask ourselves here: What might become possible if…

We need to ask ourselves here: What might become possible if I got 5% more comfortable with being uncomfortable? Or 5% more comfortable embracing uncertainty?

Tuesday, Dec. 24th:

Tuesday, the Moon remains in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius all day (see Monday late morning for details).

Tuesday very early morning, after 12:13am EST: we are now within 48 hours of the Eclipse. Allow for the new templates to download, stay centered, and do your best to ground from within — try using conscious breathing, flexibility — and best of all, see if you can move to the “observer position” when it comes to the emotional and mental body…

There is some potent energy coming our way — prepare yourself to be transformed by it, by allowing for the consciousness upgrade to be installed. Feel free to also watch my video on the subject.

This is a good time to slow things down and go within. For many of us, this will be a stretch, as we want to do just the opposite: we’d rather jump the gun on something new. This is quite common right before a Solar Eclipse. As best as you can, stay grounded, take a deep breath, exhale any tensions… and connect to your inner wisdom.

It all comes down to this: just for now and just as best as you can… could you simply allow what is… simply “to be”? Could you simply hang out as the “observer” until the upgrade is complete?

Rather than starting something brand-new, put all that energy into completing things. The last Solar Eclipse was in early July 2019. Think back to that time (if you can 🙂 — what did you start around then? How could you complete it or move to the next level?

As best as you can, take the days immediately before and after the Eclipse for meditation, walks in nature, creative or spiritual endeavors — anything that supports going within and tapping into your inner divinity. Of course if, like most of us, you have other obligations, find other ways (f you possibly can) to get quiet and be with your higher Self — even if that just means “taking a breather” here and there.

Tuesday afternoon, we may need to make some adjustments. As best you can, honor both your need for adventure and exploration of life and your need to go within. You may feel a pull between introvert and extrovert, or simply fast and slow. Tune in for a moment and see if you need to take a break or at least slow down a little. As best as you can, be compassionate and kind with yourself.

Tuesday late afternoon, a harmonious Sun/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 4:44pm EST. We started to feel this aspect build from last week Saturday evening (Dec. 21st) on, it will remain strong until this Friday evening . This aspect connects us to a strong energy field — physical and metaphysical. We feel alive, we want to create a better future for ourselves and others, and we are excited to do it. Watch out for messages from the Universe 🙂

Originality and innovation come easy to us, as does connection with like-minded people. We can celebrate (and leverage) our idealism and unorthodox approaches to life’s challenges. What if you expressed what’s uniquely “you” without apologies? What if you did it with authenticity and enthusiasm? And, looking at things from a different angle: What might be possible with a bigger network of like-minded people?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 0-6 degrees of  Capricorn, Taurus, or Virgo? If so, you will be more blessed by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aquarius or Leo (the Sun rules Leo; Uranus rules Aquarius).

Also, Tuesday, Chiron ends its Station (in 1.5º of Aries) and gets back to its normal pace through the sky. We have a chance to implement everything we learned during the retrograde phase and move forward with healing any physical, sexual, or “identity” wounds, or insecurities and sensitivities that came up around the masculine energies.

Wednesday, Dec. 25th:

Wednesday, the Moon remains in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius until 4:45pm EST (see Monday late morning for details).

Wednesday at 6:18am EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for almost 10.5 hours until 4:45pm EST. Use this intuitive time to connect with others (and with yourself) through exploration of something exciting. Could you look at the bigger picture? Take a broader-minded approach? What if you also communicated your enthusiasm, new found perspective, or new approach?

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 Wednesday morning until the late afternoon ahead of time.

Wednesday at 4:45pm EST, the Moon moves into practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn, where it will journey until Friday night/Saturday 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; 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.

Wednesday evening, 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 😉

Wednesday late evening, 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.

Thursday, Dec. 26th:

Thursday, the Moon remains in practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn all day (see Wednesday late afternoon for details).

Wednesday night/Thursday very early morning, at 12:13am EST, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 4 degrees of Capricorn, launching both a new Moon and a new Eclipse cycle. Feel free to also watch my video on the subject

Eclipse season is started on Dec. 16th, 2019 and lasts until Jan. 24th, 2020: Eclipses usually come in pairs — Solar and Lunar Eclipse — so Eclipse season starts 10 days before the first Eclipse, continues through the time of the second Eclipse (exact on Jan. 10th) and ends with the Lunar Eclipse cycle, at the time of the New Moon in Aquarius on Jan. 24th.

Between Dec. 16th and Jan. 24th, allow for the new templates to download; stay centered and do your best to ground from within — try using conscious breathing and conscious flexibility — and best of all, see if you can move to the “observer position” when it comes to the emotional and mental body… And remember: this won’t last forever — on Jan. 24th, the downloads are complete 😉

Eclipses are a time for clarifying and affirming our highest path. We are bound to experience a release of some sort — and a recalibration — “old” codes will get deleted and new ones downloaded — especially in connection with the laws of matter, earthly ambitions, contributions to society, and living in pure accordance with our conscience, from a place of maturity and inner guidance.

The Sun and Moon are connected to one of the Moon Nodes during an Eclipse, emphasizing the evolutionary upgrades that are available to us during such times.

Eclipses switch between South Node and North Node Eclipses. The last Eclipse in July was a North Node Eclipse in Cancer. What have you discovered about Self-care since July? How have you been doing at taking care of your emotional well-being? What emotional “needs” are calling out to be met? What is coming to completion? Or moving to the next level?

This Eclipse is connected to the South Node — and South Node Eclipses can help us release energies or attachments that no longer serve our Soul’s evolution. We get to redefine how we are moving with this particular energy in our lives.

We started 2019 with a South Node Eclipse in 15.5 degrees of Capricorn (on Jan. 5th), and we are ending the year with another one in 4º of Capricorn; this indicates that we are continuing to release or redefine certain outdated structures in our lives, or take a more serious look at the commitments we are ready to make, some of which would definitely be long-term in nature.

The last South Node Solar Eclipse in 4º of Capricorn was on Dec. 25th, 2000. We are likely to experience a resonance between now and that time — “resonant”, rather than identical — so think back to the Winter of 2000/2001: Were there any major endings and beginnings? What was important back then? If you were to take those priorities to the next level, where would that next level find you?

If you’re looking for more guidance on those questions, I would suggest taking a look at your Natal Chart — the House placement of the Eclipse will indicate which areas of life are most ready to release outdated structures and go to a new level of consciousness.

If that idea appeals, check out my 30-minute class, “How to Read My Birth Chart” — you might also want to purchase the latest Forecasting Forum, where we took a Look at the Year Ahead, as well as the upcoming Eclipses.

Solar Eclipses are a good time to…  To read the whole article and get all the Coaching questions for this month, click here.

Do you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 0-9 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, or Libra? If so, you are more affected by this powerful New Moon/Solar Eclipse; the same is true for those of us with our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo, the Moon rules Cancer).

Setting Intentions for a Solar Eclipse is a little different from the regular monthly New Moon process — after all, we are setting those intentions for the whole 6-month Eclipse cycle, rather than just for the next 28 days. It is best to set our Intentions 48 hours after the the Solar Eclipse becomes exact, and not during a Moon VoC.

The best and most potent times to set your Solar Eclipse Intentions is therefore any time between 12:21am Saturday very early morning on Dec. 28th until 12:13am Monday very early morning, Dec. 30th (that’s Eastern Time in the US — the New York time zone).

Make them powerful — after all, they cover the next six months — and if possible, align them with the Capricorn energy!

If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast-time), and converting time zones isn’t your thing, I suggest joining my Facebook page and/or following me on Twitter. I will post reminders on Saturday and Sunday to let you know when it is time to set your intentions 😉

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

Friday, Dec. 27th:

Friday, the Moon remains in practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn all day (see Wednesday late afternoon for details).

Friday early afternoon, a Sun/Jupiter alignment in 5.5 degrees of Capricorn becomes exact at 1:25pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from Monday evening on; it will be strong until Tuesday morning. This is the start of a “new you” with more confidence and faith; we have a chance to create a world of adventure and personal growth within our long-term goals.

We feel optimistic — and that helps us attract positive circumstances. If you’ve been thinking about launching a new long-term project, this would be an excellent time to do so; this is especially true for projects connected to the Capricorn energy — things like career goals, business dealings, long-term projects, long-term aspirations — or the pursuit of self-mastery and repute as an expert out there in the world.

Government programs or affiliations can also flourish at this time, as can big business ventures with long-lasting impact; here too, we may well feel more vital, confident, and optimistic — but may also be prone to exaggeration.

Given that we strongly prefer to see the good in the world at this time, this is also a good time to resolve conflicts concerning our status in the world, or around our business relationships. Events may give our ego a boost, and we could be feeling quite perky and “alive”. Take advantage of this by promoting yourself or putting yourself “out there”.

If we don’t channel all this energy into something that elevates our mind and soul, we may become a little restless or stressed, so ask yourself: Where does all this energy coming through want to go? How might I use it to my advantage? Could I use it to go beyond what I’ve known myself to be?

This aspect also gives us an opportunity to be encouraging and optimistic with ourselves and others, as we deal with inner and outer limitations, challenges, or pressures. Our perspective on what we have endured or worked towards since early 2019 might change as we begin to see some possibilities around long-term goals and the structures we have been building (or rebuilding) over the last several years.

Ask yourself: What’s the bigger picture that I can now see? What no longer looks so useful in my approach to my long-term goals? What if I got real about that? Could I be courageous enough to acknowledge what’s not working and simply correct it? Could I see the humor in my fallibility and limitations?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 2-9 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, or Libra? If so, you will feel this alignment quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Sagittarius (the Sun rules Leo; Jupiter rules Sagittarius).

Friday at 4:03pm EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 8 hours until 12:21am EST (Saturday very early morning). Use this intuitive time as an opportunity to investigate your deepest motivations and align them with your long-term goals and achievements. We are capable of great focus for this period.

As with all opportunities in life, this one is not simply handed to us, we have to make something of it. Might deeper perspectives into our psyche move us closer to 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. You may also want to plan Friday afternoon until Saturday very early morning ahead of time.

Saturday, Dec. 28th:

Saturday, the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius all day (see Friday night/Saturday very early morning for details).

Friday night/Saturday very early morning, at 12:21am EST, the Moon moves into freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius, where it will journey until next week, Monday late morning (Dec. 30th). With this Moon placement, we often feel emotionally detached; when we do connect to our feelings, it’s typically from a cerebral, intellectual place. We need a cause or project that resonates — preferably one where we can connect with like-minded people.

For the next couple of days, we’ll tend to be more eccentric or experimental; future-related issues like politics or education call to us now, as do unusual or even esoteric subjects like Astrology, UFOs… indeed anything from outer space. Our scientific approach to things leans on originality and ingenuity; we definitely love being unconventional.

The increased value we place on personal and emotional independence could make us come off as indifferent or cold in one-on-one interactions. That said, we can still be friendly and kind, provided we aren’t pushed into doing something conventional or unethical.

Saturday after 12:21am EST, is the best time to start setting our New Moon/Solar Eclipse Intentions. As mentioned on Thursday morning, with a Solar Eclipse it is best to wait until 48 hours after the Eclipse was exact before setting any intentions, as the energy of an Eclipse is quite intense, and it’s therefore wise to wait until the energy settles before setting our intentions.

As always, we also want to avoid any Moon void of course (VoC) phases; this time around that makes the best and most potent time for setting our intentions: today (Saturday) after 12:21am EST, and tomorrow (Sunday) all day — all the way through Monday very early morning at 12:13am EST.

Make your Intentions powerful — after all, they cover the next six months — and if possible, align them with the Solar Eclipse energies that I spoke about in my last video — you might want to watch it again if you are not sure anymore what they are — click here to watch my video on the Solar Eclipse 😉

If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast-time), feel free to join my facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter I will be posting reminders today and tomorrow throughout the day, to let you know that it is time to set your intentions 😉

For more details on how to set New Moon Intentions, click here or for my article on Solar Eclipse Intentionsclick here

Saturday early morning, we may feel pulled in two quite different directions: On the one hand, we experience a need for connecting with like-minded people and remaining objective; on the other hand, we want to make space for pursuing our financial vision — and we also want to break free from outdated value systems.

As such, we may have to address what we value in both in others, and in ourselves (which informs our self-worth); as best as you can, make adjustments and find creative solutions when it comes to these energies.

Saturday late evening, at 11:55pm EST, Mercury changes signs from optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius to practical, accomplishment-oriented, status-oriented Capricorn, where it will journey until Jan. 16th, 2020.

This is a time when our minds like to make concrete plans for the future. A systematic, practical approach to reaching our goals is now favored; we are good at focusing on practical matters and getting down to the essentials.

We do not waste any words at this time — what we say is truthful and to the point. We see reality very clearly now — and it might not look as rosy as we thought. As best as you can, use this time to get in touch with what’s real in your life — without going down the “rabbit hole” of pessimistic inadequacy 😉

Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini or Virgo? If so, you will be more serious and possible more eager to accomplish concrete goals. Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Capricorn? If so, you will most likely feel more chatty for the next 3 weeks.

Sunday, Dec. 29th:

Sunday, the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius all day (see Saturday very early morning for details).

Sunday all day until tomorrow, Monday very early morning, at 12:13am EST, is still time to set our New Moon/Solar Eclipse Intentions. As mentioned yesterday already, with a Solar Eclipse it is best to wait until 48 hours after the Eclipse was exact before setting any intentions, as the energy of an Eclipse is quite intense, and it’s therefore wise to wait until the energy settles before setting our intentions.

Make your Intentions powerful — after all, they cover the next six months — and if possible, align them with the Solar Eclipse energies that I spoke about in my last video — you might want to watch it again if you are not sure anymore what they are — click here to watch my video on the Solar Eclipse 😉

Sunday late evening, a challenging Mercury/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 11:58pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from Friday evening on; it will remain strong until Tuesday evening. This combination might bring up some insecurities in our verbal, in-person or email interactions.

That said, this could also be an opportunity for healing; we are energized to move past harsh criticism of ourselves or others, towards more loving and compassionate structures for thinking and communicating. As best as you can, stretch yourself — and be open to bringing love and understanding to it all (and that includes you) 🙂

Please keep in mind that as a Member of this online community you have FREE access to this workshop via your Member’s account (click on the “My Courses”- tab)

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point or any personal planets in the following: 0-5 degree of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, or Libra, or 28-29 degrees of Sagittarius, Pisces, Virgo, or Gemini? 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 or Virgo (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo).

And…

A heads up for next Monday (Dec. 30th): the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius until 10:41am EST (see Saturday very early morning for details). At 5:24am EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 5 hours until 10:41am EST. At 10:41am EST, the Moon moves into creative, sensitive Pisces, where it will journey until Wednesday late evening. In the late afternoon, a harmonious Mercury/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 5:22pm EST; we started to feel this aspect from Dec. 28th on; it will remain strong until Jan. 1st 2020. Last but not least, also on Monday, Uranus starts to slow down (station) getting ready to end it’s 5-month Retrograde phase. More about all the details in next week’s forecast 🙂

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Dec. 16th:

Monday, the Moon remains in attention-loving Leo all day. It will journey there until Tuesday very early morning. We have a chance to appreciate ourselves and our lives — and to connect to the heart.

Hand out as many compliments as possible, they will be deeply appreciated 🙂 Fun, games and romance are a big part of this energy. You might also enjoy spending time with little ones. What are you most grateful for today? What would be heaps of fun? What would be so much fun, you squeak just thinking about it?

Monday very early morning, we are still invited to make some internal adjustments. We may want to have some fun, but may also need to tune in to our intuitive inner voice. What do you hear when you get really quiet?

Monday morning, feels a little uneasy. We need to develop an inner awareness around our two seemingly opposite pulls: on the one hand, a strong desire to accomplish; on the other, our need for play and fun.

We are asked to bring awareness to whatever it is we feel most committed to: Are we after laughter and joy? Or building a solid foundation? As best as you can, make adjustments as needed, and drop any self-judgment.

Monday early afternoon, feels a little uneasy. We need to develop an inner awareness around our two seemingly opposite pulls: on the one hand, a strong desire to accomplish; on the other, our need for play and fun.

We are asked to bring awareness to whatever it is we feel most passionate about: Are we after laughter and joy? Or intense and authentic emotion? As best as you can, make adjustments as needed, and drop any self-judgment.

Monday at 5:10pm EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 9 hours until 2:16am EST (Tuesday very early morning). Use this intuitive time to feel excited about an adventure. Things flow nicely during this time; you have an opportunity to connect, explore, and become part of something exciting.

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 afternoon until Tuesday very early morning ahead of time.

Also, on Monday, we enter Eclipse season until Jan. 24th 2020; for 10 days before and after an Eclipse, we are usually in uncharted territory: anything is possible and it’s wise to expect the unexpected.

Anything brand-new (and I really mean brand, 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 the New Moon that follows the last Eclipse. If possible, try to defer any major brand-new projects until after Jan. 24th, when this Eclipse season is over. If something is beginning or ending in a way that seems organic allow it to be.

Another Eclipse-related phenomenon: not only do Eclipses bring up uncertainty in us, they might also leave us nervous, anxious, unsettled and disoriented. As best as you can, observe your feelings and stay grounded in the “here and now”. Connect to your intuition and inner wisdom; they will help carry you through this period. Remember: it’s temporary and we are receiving an upgrade — that’s a good thing!

Just like upgrading a computer, you will get all the information you need, as soon as the upgrade is complete — so as best you can, be patient. This does not mean that we need to drop everything; it just means it’s wise to…

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Dec. 9th:

Monday, the Moon remains in steady, peaceful Taurus all day. It will journey there until Tuesday late morning. 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 day? It’s probably, slowing down and getting in touch with whatever delights our senses 😉

Monday early morning, at 4:42am EST, Mercury changes signs from intense, passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio to optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius. It will journey through this fiery sign, until Dec. 28th. During this time, our thinking shifts from a need to plumb the depths of any given situation, to the desire to explore a wide range of topics — especially topics that widen our horizons.

We seek out new ideas; our thinking is more optimistic and our faith increased. We are more equipped to believe and to persuade and will have an easier time reframing problems into opportunities: What if we saw everything that happens to us as a chance to grow? What might change if everything was happening “for” us rather than “to” us?

Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini or Virgo? If so, you will feel a greater need for expansion — let’s hope it’s not your waistline that expands 🙂 Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Sagittarius? If so, you will most likely feel more chatty for the next 3 weeks.

Monday late morning, we have an opportunity to meet our need for material comfort with a gentler, more intuitive approach.

Also, Monday late morning: we have the ability to comfortably accomplish things that are aligned with our values, coupled with a nice feeling of ease — rushing is not required or expected of us right now. We are also feeling quite grounded in our connections with others and can be quite “real” with them without causing offense.

Monday afternoon, Slow down a little and focus on what’s sitting right in front of you that needs to be taken care of, so you can get to the next phase of accomplishment. Rushing will backfire right now.

Monday 8:13pm EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 15.5 hours until 11:47am EST (Tuesday late morning). Use this intuitive time to empower each other in regards to earthly issues and mutually support each other in practical ways.

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

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, December 2nd:

Monday, the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius all day. It will journey there until Tuesday very early morning. 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 7:27am EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for almost 19 hours until 2:11am EST (Tuesday very early morning). We are pulled in two quite different directions: On the one hand, we experience a need for connecting with like-minded people and remaining objective; on the other hand, we want to go deeper, and communicate from a place of passion and empowerment.

We may thus have to address our fears and “issues”. Make space both for connecting, and interacting — and for going within, to reorganize your thought patterns and release any disempowering thought structures. As best as you can, use this intuitive time to make adjustments and find creative solutions when it comes to these energies.

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 morning until Tuesday very early morning ahead of time.

Monday afternoon, at 1:20pm EST, Jupiter moves from adventurous, enthusiastic Sagittarius into practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn, where it will journey until Dec. 19th, 2020.

Jupiter represents our desire to seek insight through knowledge; some of this planet’s keywords are gratitude, hope, honor, morality, and the law — it is also the planet of possibility, optimism, and growth (including mental and spiritual growth), and is 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, and so forth.

In the natal chart, the position of Jupiter reveals how we express generosity and tolerance, it also shows how we go about trusting others and improving our lives. Where do you look for wisdom and understanding? Where do you need movement and spaciousness? Where do you feel optimistic and have faith that things will turn out ok?

Jupiter represents the principle of expansion; it’s been in Sagittarius over the last year (2019), where it sought the bigger picture, new perspectives, expansion, and higher learning of some kind — imagine a powerful lens, searching, magnifying.

Sagittarius values both freedom of movement and the truth, so we’ve been getting to see what we believe to be true about ourselves, life, and others in 2019 (and what stories we’ve been telling ourselves, too) — and we also wanted to go full steam ahead, no matter what the direction.

With Jupiter in Capricorn, that magnifying lens now swings over to long-term goals and worldly achievements; the opportunity now is to ground the enthusiastic energies of Jupiter and commit to a path that we have been visualizing or toying with over the last year (2019).

Jupiter in Capricorn also promotes a greater understanding of our potential for overcoming adversity in the real world; it also helps us develop our ability (or shows us our inability) to have faith in our higher Selves, our divinity, here on earth.

For the next 12.5 months, we definitely attract the most good fortune when we are…  If you are already a  Member of my online community, feel free to read the whole article: click here; or if you want to know how this planetary movement is impacting you personally, feel free to purchase our latest webinar — we applied the Jupiter movement to our own birth charts! Click here to purchase.

Star and Super Star Members: please check your emails — I sent out the mp4-video presentation on Nov. 13/14th.

Monday night/Tuesday very early morning, an opportune Mercury/Pluto aspect becomes exact at 12:23am EST. We started to feel this aspect build from Sunday morning (Dec. 1st) on, it will remain strong until Wednesday morning (Dec. 4th). This aspect provides an opportunity to restructure or rebuild areas of our lives that need it.

Due to the Mercury’s Retrograde phase we have experienced this particular aspect several times. The first time Mercury connected to Pluto in this way was on Oct.19th, the second time on Nov. 9th — so think back to those times:

What came up during those two periods? What opportunities did you see? What did you discover about your motivations to build something lasting and meaningful? Are your thoughts supporting you on this path or “keeping you small”? Has previous research pointed you in the right direction? Where might you point the investigation next?

This aspect is an opportunity to …

November 25 – December 1

What Did You Discover About the Universal Flow?

 

This week’s headline items: on Monday, Mercury’s Station ends and Venus changes signs from Sagittarius to Capricorn; the following day, the New Moon in Sagittarius becomes exact, late Tuesday morning. Neptune comes to a halt on Wednesday morning — ending its 5-month Retrograde phase — and on Sunday, we can start taking actions on our New Moon Intentions, plus Chiron starts to slow down (station) in Aries, getting ready to conclude its Retrograde phase.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday afternoon (for a little over 14.5 hours), Thursday morning (just over 1.5 hours), and Friday late evening (a little over 16 hours).

Before we get to this week’s forecast, let me share this with you:

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Nov. 25th:

Monday, the Moon remains in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio all day. It will journey there until Tuesday very 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 therefore an excellent time to look at “old” fears, limiting habits, or emotional attachments — especially those stemming from past traumas.

Moon in Scorpio tends to run right over ambiguity — it’s “in or out”, “with us or against us”, “love me or leave me”. It can therefore 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 as best you can, 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 at 12:30pm EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 14.5 hours until 3:11am EST (Tuesday very early morning). Use this intuitive time as an opportunity to focus on inner processes. As best as you can, release any fears or traumas that keep you stuck in the past, and deepen your connection to what you feel deeply passionate about out there in the world — you have an opportunity to become fully committed to a project or task now — something that might serve you long-term.

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 early afternoon until Tuesday very early morning ahead of time.

Monday evening, at 7:28pm EST, Venus changes signs from optimistic, adventurous Sagittarius to realistic, prestige-and-accomplishment-oriented Capricorn. Venus will be traveling through Capricorn, until Dec. 20th. With this placement, our relationships tend to more practical in nature: We see people for who they are and are not afraid to lay the facts on the table; we take things more seriously.

We take our time warming up to others, appreciate maturity in relationships, and can make long-term commitments. There is a strong focus on business relationships. Venus is also connected to finances and the things we value; it’s therefore a perfect time to get serious and make long-term plans in these areas: As best as you can, get real about what comes in and what goes out 😉

Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus or Libra? If so, you will feel more serious and focused for the next 4 weeks; your heart will want to make practical, attainable long-term plans. If you are a Capricorn 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.

Monday late evening, a somewhat challenging Sun/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 9:00pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from Monday early morning on; it will remain strong until Tuesday evening. This aspect operates more on an internal level. We feel uneasy about something, almost awkward — and we need to make a choice… so we need to develop inner awareness.

An unexpected turn of events could leave us uneasy or unsettled. How flexible could you be, if you really tried? What needs to be shifted internally, so you can stay open and aligned with your unique, divine preferences?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 2-5 degree of Sagittarius or Taurus? If so, you may be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aquarius or Leo (the Sun rules Leo; Uranus rules Aquarius)

Also, on Monday, Mercury resumes its normal pace through the sky, ending its station. Communication and transportation is now back to “normal” as are any associated gadgets, vehicles, etc. New ideas and information received during the Mercury retrograde phase ( Oct. 31st – Nov. 20th) can now be reviewed. What did you discover about…

This week’s headline items: Mars changes signs from Libra to Scorpio early Tuesday and the last Quarter Moon in Leo becomes exact that afternoon. On Wednesday, Neptune’s Station in Pisces intensifies and Mercury comes to a halt, ending its 3.5-week Retrograde and beginning its “Post-Shadow” phase. The Sun changes signs from Scorpio to Sagittarius, late Friday morning.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday afternoon (for almost 5 hours), Thursday late evening (for almost 1 hour), and Saturday late evening (for a little over 3 hours).

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, November 18th:

Monday, the Moon remains in fun and attention-loving Leo all day. It will journey there until Tuesday evening. We have a chance to appreciate ourselves and our lives — and to connect to the heart.

Hand out as many compliments as possible, they will be deeply appreciated 🙂 Fun, games and romance are a big part of this energy. You might also enjoy spending time with little ones. What are you most grateful for today? What would be heaps of fun? What would be so much fun, you squeak just thinking about it? This Moon placement also started the build up towards the last Quarter Moon in Leo (exact Tuesday afternoon).

Monday afternoon, we feel a need for acknowledgment and adoration… and also for deep, authentic — even intimate — communication with others. As best as you can, get creative!

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

Also, Monday late evening, feels a little uneasy. We need to develop an inner awareness around our two seemingly opposite pulls: on the one hand, a strong desire to accomplish; on the other, our need for play and fun. We are asked to bring awareness to whatever it is we feel most committed to: Are we after laughter and joy? Or building a solid foundation?

As best as you can, make adjustments as needed, and…

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Nov. 11th:

Monday, the Moon remains in steady, peaceful Taurus all day. 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 getting in touch with whatever delights our senses 😉

Monday very early morning, if possible, connect with people that can support your projects on a practical level, and share with them what you have going on.

Monday late morning, a Sun/Mercury alignment in almost 19 degrees of Scorpio becomes exact at 10:22am EST. We started to feel this aspect build from last week Sunday morning (Nov. 10th) on; it will remain strong until this Tuesday evening. Mercury aligns with the Sun quite frequently, but we may not always be able to see this transit from the US; the last time this transit of Mercury across the Sun was visible from the US was in 2016, and the next time will be in 2039.

Generally speaking, 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 at this time; however, 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.

The Sun/Mercury alignment in Scorpio brings a heightened focus towards thinking about the unknown, facing our worst fears, or dealing with loss in some way — in particular, letting go of the “old” to let in the “new”.

If we remain attached to the “old” (through fear of letting go of it to meet the “new”), we are likely to experience this as a dark, difficult transition in our lives — but if not, it could help us build inner strength and show us what cannot be taken away — we will see at last that nothing outside of us can take away the power and resilience that lives inside of us.

Our thinking may become obsessive — but becoming controlling (or even paranoid) may not serve us — choose your battles wisely and seek to provide empowerment wherever possible.

Since Mercury is also still Retrograde, ask yourself: What has come up for me since Mercury entered its Shadow phase on Oct. 11th? What, if anything, have I already revisited or even re-processed since Mercury went retrograde back on Oct. 31st?

What am I still obsessing about? Scared about? When or where do I still focus on “worst case scenarios” that are connected to past traumas or disempowerments? What if I surrendered my fears 5% more completely than I have in the past? What if I gave myself 5% more freedom to sense my inner strength, my fierce, open heart, and the passionate love for life that is pumping through my veins, right now, in this moment? What place of power would I stand in then?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 16-22 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, or Aquarius? 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)

Monday evening, we are invited to make some internal adjustments: We may want to …

November 4th – 10th

Difficult to Stop — Forecast for Nov. 4th – 10th

 

This week’s headline items: On Monday, first Quarter Moon in Aquarius becomes exact, and the Mercury Station ends; Neptune, on the other hand, starts its Station phase on Thursday.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday late morning (for 8.5 hours), Thursday evening (for a little over 10.5 hours), and Sunday morning (for a little over 9 hours).

Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, November 4th:

Monday, the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius all day; it will journey there until Tuesday early evening. 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: Mercury resumes its normal pace through the sky, ending its station — but moving backward through the sky, as seen from Earth (that’s what “retrograde” refers to). If any thinking and/or communication issues have come up around our intimate relationships, or financial partnerships since Oct. 11th, we’ll now have a chance to do some internal work on those issues. We are also invited to investigate anything that needs to be more fully integrated in our personality (i.e. “Shadow” issues).

Star and SuperStar Members: check your email for the link to the mp4-video recording and enjoy watching it! I sent it out on Oct. 17th late evening 😉

Monday early morning, at 5:23am EST, the first Quarter Moon in a little over 11.5 degrees of Aquarius becomes exact. We started to feel this aspect from the moment the Moon entered Aquarius last week, Sunday morning (Nov 3rd). The Moon in freedom-loving, progressive, detached, objective Aquarius makes a challenging aspect to the Sun in passionate, all-or-nothing, intimacy-craving Scorpio.

We feel compelled to take action. On Oct. 27th, the New Moon in Scorpio became exact: “Seeds” planted then are probably “sprouting” by now — and making their first real contact with the outside world. This is therefore a time to stretch and grow — and create some forward momentum. We may feel anxious or unusually busy.

As best as you can, go one breath at a time. Allow for changes, remain flexible (as much as possible), and find creative solutions for your day-to-day interactions with others.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 9-14 degrees of Aquarius, Scorpio, Taurus, or Leo? If so, you will feel the effects of this first Quarter Moon more strongly than otherwise. 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).

Monday late evening, we feel…

October 28 – November 3

A More Fierce Approach to Life — Forecast for Oct. 28th – Nov. 3rd

 

This week’s headline items: Mercury’s station intensifies on Monday and it comes to a halt late on Thursday morning as it begins its 3.5 week retrograde. Start taking action on your New Moon intentions on Friday. Venus changes signs from Scorpio to Sagittarius on Friday afternoon. I should also mention that Daylight Savings Time ends here in the US, very early Sunday.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday early afternoon (for almost 4.5 hours), Thursday late morning (for a little over 12 hours), and Saturday night/Sunday very early morning (for 4.5 hours).

Before we get to this week’s forecast, let me share this with you:
If you haven’t set your New Moon Intentions yet, Monday all day and Tuesday until 1:34pm EDT is still time to do so during the most potent time… If you’d like some input on how to do that, check out this article — you could also (re-)watch my New Moon video. 

Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, Oct. 28th:

Monday, the Moon remains in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio all day. It will journey there until Tuesday late afternoon. We feel things deeply and have “X-Ray Vision” and “Bullshit-Smelling Abilities” 😉

Monday early morning, a Sun/Uranus opposition becomes exact at 4:15am EDT. We started to feel this aspect from last week, Thursday (Oct. 24th) on; it will remain strong until this Wednesday (Oct. 30th)What we identify ourselves with could now be challenged: we are asked to create a balance between our urge for personal freedom (including financial freedom), versus our awareness of the importance of intimate, empowering connections and collaborations with others.

This aspect is an invitation to stay open and flexible in regards to our interactions with people. We may need to find a balance between what we value/what’s important to us on a physical level, or with our intimate partnerships, or what’s important to us on an emotional level. As best as you can, be open to receiving feedback from others during this time.

If you experience fear or uncertainty, focus on what it is that you could really get excited about and get behind in a realistic, grounded way — something that could make a difference, something meaningful. Also, take it one moment at a time, there is no need to rush anything 😉 Could you allow yourself to be uncomfortable, just for right now?

We may find that we disagree with other people’s values. We may be restless, even anxious, and therefore feel pressure to act (or react) towards others — or around our desire for financial freedom and independence. We could also be caught off-guard somehow, so stay open-minded and flexible.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in the following placements: 1-8 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, or Aquarius, ? If so, you may be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Aquarius (the Sun rules Leo; Uranus rules Aquarius).

Monday late evening/night, a somewhat challenging Mars/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 11:57pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect from the early this morning (Oct. 28th) on; it will remain strong until Wednesday morning. Our idealism and high expectations could lead us into frustrating circumstances that leave us emotionally and physically drained. Our vitality and emotional resilience increase as we learn how (and where) to get involved in projects we feel passionate about.

That said, we may also have difficulty establishing realistic limits with others and around our own self-expectations; this, combined with a tendency to laziness (especially where exercising good judgment is concerned) could leave us feeling “rudderless” or even overwhelmed. As best as you can therefore, allow for downtime, rest and spiritual connection.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 15-17 degrees of Libra or Pisces? 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 Aries or Pisces (Mars is the ruler of Aries; Neptune rules Pisces)

Also, on Monday, Mercury’s Station intensifies, as Mercury is preparing to come to a halt on Thursday late morning (beginning its 3.5-week retrograde phase). As I mentioned last week Thursday already, during the station phase, we feel Mercury’s energies more strongly. It will remain at its most intensifies until Nov. 2nd.

Pay attention to anything “in your face” in any of the following areas: communications, short travels, transportation of any kind, communication devices. You will get a chance to make adjustments once Mercury has ended its Retrograde phase (to be more precise, during the shadow phase that follows).

Here are some questions you could ask yourself during the Mercury Station phase: Is my mind drawn to worst-case scenarios? Am I obsessing over something that feels disempowering? What are my motivations? Am I coming from fear? Self-protection? Or from love?

What would it be like to live life fully and completely, feeling empowered in my choices? What will get me 1% closer to that right here and now?

Speaking of the “here and now”, if empowerment only existed in the “now” moment, could I surrender my fears or concerns connected to the past or the future, and simply be present in the here and now? What if I trusted my Higher Self enough to release any suspicious, fearful, or protective thoughts that may arise?

For the next 5 days, we might experience delays or misunderstandings; things could feel “off” or stagnant. It might be a good idea to give yourself some extra time when getting ready to go somewhere — and that goes for the journey itself, too — especially if you intend to drive or use public transportation. Going with the flow is definitely recommended at this time.

Be extra-patient if you intend to buy, sell or ship big-ticket items, especially if they are transportation or communication devices like anything connected with planes, trains, cars, phones, computers, iPads, etc. Best of all (if possible): wait until after Dec.7th, when Mercury’s second shadow phase is over.
