October astrological forecast


October 2019


RUNE OF THE MONTH: Thurisaz “crossroads”. A month requiring of us to make important decisions for our future. We need to discern right from wrong and foresee the consequences of our decisions. If one choice can save us, another could destroy us. Making no choice, leaves in limbo, or “stuck”. Even the “wrong” choice is better than no choice. If we made a “mistake”, we shall know soon enough and still have learned something valuable on the way that will give us strength.

Neptune remains retrograde this whole month until November 27. Its shadow period will last until March 17, 2020. The image representing the degree covered in October (16º45’ – 16º08’ Pisces) is: “An Easter parade”. We are called to discern true spirituality from illusion. False prophets abound. They may utter the right words but these have no substance. Are we paying lip service to our own spirituality, believing ourselves to be on a path of enlightenment, or are we escaping reality and being delusional?


Pluto turns direct on October 3 at 20º38’ Capricorn. Its shadow period continues until January 24, 2020. This degree is represented by the following image: “A relay race”. Victory is based on solidarity and cooperation. We only live spiritually when we understand that what we do to another, we are doing to ourselves. When one succeeds, all do. The empowerment of one, empowers all.


Mercury turns retrograde on October 31 at 28º19’ Scorpio and will remain so until November 21. Its shadow period lasts until December 8th. This degree is symbolized by: “An Indian squaw pleading to the chief for the lives of her children”. Mercury retrograde periods are always wonderful for revisiting projects we had left on the side and reconnecting with places we had forgotten or people we had lost. This particular retrogradation encourages us to look at the core of our creations and empower ourselves.

This month’s intentional meditation starts on Sunday 10/13. Take out as many blank sheets of paper as you will have intentions and placed them near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they will bask in the light of the Full Moon in Aries at exactly 2:08 PM. Once that moment had passed, gather your Full Moon charged blank sheets and place them in a folder.


On Sunday 10/27 on the New Moon in Scorpio, take out your blank full moon charged papers and write on each a concise, positive intention. Place them on a balcony, in a garden or near a window so that they are out by exactly 8:38 PM. Once that moment has passed, staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams.

Wednesday 10/2: Pluto turns direct (11:37 PM) 

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.


Thursday 10/3: Mercury enters Scorpio (1:15 AM till December 9), Mars enters Libra (9:22 PM till November 18) 

During the next 2 months, our perceptions, communications and thinking are deeper than usual. We X-ray situations and people, may be more solitary and secretive than normal and seek deep answers to our questions. Our minds could be occupied by seemingly obsessive ideas requiring of us to go to the bottom of problems at hand. During the following 6 weeks, Libra natives are favored. Making clear decisions could prove challenging as we tend to take into account all sides of a situation. Our actions are driven by the need to be fair. 


Sunday 10/6: Mercury Opposition Uranus (11:16 PM) 

Our pace of life could drastically accelerate. We could overlook details and impulsively break communications or alienate people. Best to think before speaking too hastily or jumping too quickly to false conclusions. We should also be particularly careful when driving. An excellent day to connect dots in an unusual manner, have brilliant ideas and think completely out of the box. Important to be very present to the present and go with the flow without resistance, particularly if our plans are severely disrupted.


Monday 10/7: Sun Square Saturn (12:07 PM) 

Duties and responsibilities could weigh heavily on our shoulders today. We could feel somewhat discouraged and depressed. A man we were counting on could prove disappointing. Best to focus on the work at hand with discipline, self-sufficiency and persistence.  


Tuesday 10/8: Venus enters Scorpio (10:06 AM till November 1) 

During the next 3 weeks our feelings are intense. We tend to go from one emotional extreme to another. A relationship begun during this time could seem fated. The passion we exhibit may reveal blocks to intimacy, thus bringing about a profound inner transformation towards love in general. We could become attracted to darker forms of art.     


Saturday 10/12: Venus Opposition Uranus (3:06 PM) 

An existing relationship could end suddenly.  A new relationship could sweep us off our feet in a whirlwind. It stands a chance of lasting only if we remain very independent, develop a true friendship with each other and live from moment to moment without any traditional expectation. The need to balance intimacy and freedom is particularly important today. Financial matters could take an unusual turn, leading to either sudden loss or unexpected gain. 


Sunday 10/13: Sun Sextile Jupiter (11:02 AM), Mercury Sextile Saturn (11:56 PM) 

Our optimism and self-confidence open us many doors. Our warmth, positive energy, trust and faith attract beneficial people and resources. Our work, our communications and our relationships with others are grounded, mature and responsible. Based on past actions, a reasonable amount of effort brings great results.  


Monday 10/14: Sun Square Pluto (0:34 AM) 

Ultimatums backfire today. People could act in controlling, abusive, manipulative ways. We could feel weak and disempowered. Best to lie low, find solutions that work for all, while doing our best to maintain our dignity and personal integrity.  


Tuesday 10/15: Mercury Trine Neptune (3:45 PM) 

An inspiring day for artists, healers and channelers who access more easily than normal, higher spheres of consciousness. Not so good however for work requiring attention to practical details. Mystical aspects of life are particularly attractive. A day best spent writing, painting, resting and meditating. Reading a nice novel or watching an inspiring movie are also good activities for today’s more peaceful energies. 


Saturday 10/19: Mercury Sextile Pluto (3:17 PM) 

Our insights into people and situations are very clear, yet willful opinions should be kept to ourselves. Solutions to pending problems are obtained today through communication, compromise and cooperation.


Sunday 10/20: Venus Sextile Saturn (6:58 AM) 

Romance is both stable and solid. A good day to strengthen an existing love relationship without enslaving ourselves. We are clear on what we have and what we don’t have with another. Money matters are constructive and allow us more flexibility of action than at any other time. Art created with disciplined work is financially rewarding. 


Monday 10/21: Venus Trine Neptune (12:41 PM) 

Our compassion towards those less favored than ourselves is both appreciated and rewarded today. We could feel particularly idealistic and romantic. A love relationship could seem most enchanted. Even though we are likely to be swept off our feet and feel a deep soul connection with that person, we should still be careful not to ignore possible red flags. We could smell money where no one else realizes there is any money to be made.  


Wednesday 10/23: Sun enters Scorpio (10:20 AM till November 22nd) 

During the next month, we may feel an unusual intensity of emotions. We are drawn to solving mysteries, studying metaphysics and reaching the supposedly impossible. We are interested in deep inner transformation, seek profound topics of conversation and need to assert our power. 


Friday 10/25: Venus Sextile Pluto (2:49 AM) 

Today, in group circumstances, compliance, cooperation and graciousness go a long way. A new relationship could be emotionally intense and powerfully transformative. An existing romance is deepened. We have a good financial flair and should be able to fructify any monetary investment. 


Sunday 10/27: Mars Square Saturn (7:30 AM) 

Our actions could be limited by external circumstances. Our energy could be low. An injustice could make us feel defeated. Dealing with restrictions with patience instead of wallowing in self-pity and frustration, helps us grow in wisdom. Working harder towards our ambitions, being focused and disciplined, as well as keeping ourselves to ourselves, are the best ways to use this transit.


Monday 10/28: Sun Opposition Uranus (1:14 AM) 

A day to expect the unexpected. Our plans could be disrupted. Someone in our environment could act in strange ways. New information could challenge what we used to believe. To best benefit from this unsettling transit, it is important that we remain very flexible, open minded, welcoming of change and present to each moment without any attachment to a specific outcome. 


Wednesday 10/30: Mercury Conjunct Venus (3:04 PM) 

A day of pleasant social exchanges. Excellent for gathering with friends and having light conversations. We express our thoughts with ease, diplomacy and kindness. 


Thursday 10/31: Mercury turns retrograde (8:42 AM till November 20th) 

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.



Wishing you a wonderful month of October!


In Loving Light.


September astrological forecast

September 2019

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Wyrd “completion” “fate”, the blank rune, the Nordic equivalent of the concept of Yin and Yang. Both the end and the beginning, this rune marks a chance to completely reinvent ourselves and take a whole new direction. Being thrown into the unknown is the ultimate challenge on our path to enlightenment. Do we try desperately to cling or return to the known? Do we accept the void not knowing what, if anything, will come of it? Self change is at hand, pushing us in the direction of our highest destiny. Let us be as fluid and transparent as water

Saturn turns direct on September 18 at 13º55’ Capricorn. Its shadow period lasts until December 24. The image associated with this degree is: “An ancient bas-relief carved in granite remains a witness to a long-forgotten culture”. During the four and a half past months, circumstances have forced us to reassess the structures in our lives, become clear on our life mission, place significant boundaries, let go of toxic relationships and honor our personal authority. Focusing on what matters helped us find deeper inner roots. The result now is that we are more grounded in our spiritual lineage, centered and powerful.


Neptune remains retrograde this whole month until November 27. Its shadow period will last until March 17, 2020. The images representing the degrees covered in September (17º34’-16º46’ Pisces) are: “In a huge tent a famous revivalist conducts his meeting with a spectacular performance” and “An Easter promenade”. The more the veil between dimensions thins and the more connected we are to our own intuition and inner needs, the more we awaken from the dream that tends to lull humanity to sleep. A powerful month to remember and assert our spiritual truth. We could feel literally reborn from the societal fog. 


Pluto remains retrograde this whole month until October 3. Its shadow period continues until January 24, 2020. The degree traveled in September (20º52’- 20º38’ Capricorn) is represented by the following image: “A relay race”. We can only truly stand in our power if we also empower others. Collaboration towards a positive common goal is what makes us all strong. Intimate relationships also confront us with our dark shadow. In projects requiring that we each do our part for the whole, we cannot escape those embarrassing darker aspects of ourselves which we are required to face with courage and dignity. 


The Moon will be Void of Course (V/O –forming no major aspect with any planet before entering the following sign-):

  • On Monday 9/2 between 1:33 AM and 4:35 PM: when the Moon enters Scorpio.

  • On Wednesday 9/4 between 3:58 AM and 8:08 PM: when the Moon enters Sagittarius.

  • From Friday 9/6 at 9:03 AM till Saturday 9/7 at 3:37 AM: when the Moon enters Capricorn.

  • From Wednesday 9/25 at 9:14 AM till Thursday 9/26 at 3:37 AM: when the Moon enters Virgo.

  • From Friday 9/27 at 8:58 PM till Saturday 9/28 at 3:03 AM: when the Moon enters Libra.

Sunday 9/1: Mercury Trine Uranus (7:10 AM), Venus Trine Saturn (11:48 AM)

A day of unexpected news, interesting meetings and strange turn of events. All are for the better, freeing us to explore new venues. A person or situation from the past could return, allowing us to see our own progress. It is important that we remain open, present to the present and flexible. A good day to consolidate a relationship and be very clear on its strengths and weaknesses. Excellent also for financial stability.


Monday 9/2: Sun Conjunct Mars (3:43 AM), Venus Square Jupiter (9:26 AM) 

A very good day for setting goals, buying and trading, writing important e-mails and making professional calls. We should however be careful of misplaced judgement. Trusting another too readily, or enthusiastically following a person whose promises are too extravagant to be real, is ill-advised.


Tuesday 9/3: Mercury Conjunct Mars (8:40 AM), Sun Conjunct Mercury (6:40 PM) 

A day of direct communication. We call a spade a spade and are very dynamic and courageous in the expression of our opinions. Our social life is positive and stimulating. We could be drawn to a first time experience that is both fun and rewarding. A very good day to make plans for our future, write an important letter, make a significant phone call, trade, buy and sell. 


Wednesday 9/4: Venus Opposition Neptune (4:27 AM) For no obvious reason, a love relationship could strangely dissolve. A lover could appear very different from who she/he really is. Deceit and lies could blur our social life. Our finances could suffer from the misrepresentations of a shady character. Not a day to trust a get- rich-quick-scheme, as we could end up losing everything we have to a shameless scam. People tend to be elusive and situations, confusing.   


Thursday 9/5: Mercury Trine Saturn (5:37 AM) 

We are mentally focused, disciplined and serious today. Great for clearing our desk of any backlogged work and having mature conversations with people who can help us further our ambitions. We may lack inspiration but make up for it with hard work. 


Friday 9/6: Mercury Square Jupiter (0:11 AM), Sun Trine Saturn (2:56 PM), Venus Trine Pluto (8:44 PM) 

Not advisable to spend more money than we have. Our judgement in business matters could be overly enthusiastic. Today, blind trust is absolutely ill advised.  We should remain as self-sufficient as possible, disciplined and responsible. Hard work grounded in reality pays off. A starting relationship or an existing romance could have a depth and intensity rarely paralleled. To be successful, cooperation with others should equally benefit all involved. 


Saturday 9/7: Mercury Opposition Neptune (0:19 AM) 

We could feel rather woolly headed. Information may be confusing. People could prove deceitful. A situation could be misrepresented. Spiritual imagination could mar our understanding. Good for day dreaming, watching an inspiring movie, reading a fantasy book and in general,  taking it easy.


Sunday 9/8: Sun Square Jupiter (8:27 AMM), Mercury Trine Pluto (8:07 PM), Mars Trine Saturn (9:13 PM) 

A day to question our values and thrive on humility and gratitude. Over optimism could make us spend more money than we should, sway from good resolutions and break our discipline. Our insights into what is happening in the world and our ability to X-ray situations and people however, helps us make a strong impact on our environment. With courage, determination and hard work, we can be particularly efficient today, turning our visions into concrete realities. 


Tuesday 9/10: Sun Opposition Neptune (0:24 AM) 

Important to use discernment today. We could be disappointed by someone we counted on. An unrealistic proposition could cause confusion. A vague feeling of discontent could plague us even though conditions around us seem ideal. Excessive sensitivity to another’s plight could pull us down. Best to rest, watch a good movie, read an inspiring book and remain peacefully centered on ourselves in silence and aloneness.  


Thursday 9/12: Mars Square Jupiter (2:06 AM) 

We could spend more than we have or want. An impulsive purchase could be more expensive than it is worth. We could come across as overbearing and arrogant. Gambling is ill advised. We should keep our valuables safe from theft. Our vital energy is best channeled into growth promoting endeavors.  


Friday 9/13: Mercury Conjunct Venus (8:12 AM), Sun Trine Pluto (12:38 PM), Harvest Full Moon (9:33 PM) 

Social contacts are pleasant and interesting. We are able to express with love and respect opinions that at other times might not be received so well. The more serenity we have, the deeper our impact. Our leadership abilities shine. We stand in our truth with power and poise. Others listen to us, aware that what we are saying comes from the depths of our experience. An excellent day to make a lasting impression. 


Saturday 9/14: Mercury enters Libra (0:15 AM till 10/3), Venus enters Libra (6:43 AM till 10/9) 

Our minds and hearts are focused on diplomacy, beauty, harmony and peace. We seek fair treatment of others, justice and balance in our relationships. Our communications take both sides into account. Perfect for negotiating. Endeavors requiring cooperation are most successful. Creative projects are inspired. 


Wednesday 9/18: Saturn turns direct (1:47 AM) 

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.


Thursday 9/19: Mars Trine Pluto (8:49 AM) 

Direct actions requiring courage, stamina and persistence are particularly attractive today. Our passion to succeed helps us overcome any obstacle on our path. Anything deemed impossible fires our determination. A sexual relationship could prove particularly intense and transformative. We are likely to feel athletically competitive. 


Saturday 9/21: Jupiter Square Neptune (9:47 AM) 

We may feel in a bit of a fog today. Our head could be in the clouds and our feet not very firmly anchored on earth. False prophets, deceitful characters, delusive psychic advice, if followed, could lead to our own unraveling. The dissolution of many things around us leaves us feeling a vague uneasiness today. Best to make no drastic decision today, to hang on to our faith, stay in integrity and care for those who deserve our compassion.


Sunday 9/22: Mercury Square Saturn (9:19 AM) 

A bit of a depressing day. Obligations, administrative papers, responsibilities could weigh more heavily than usual on our shoulders. Long meetings are tedious and boring. Pessimism could exhaust our energies. Best to remain in silence and complete the tasks at hand with as much seriousness as possible.


Monday 9/23: Sun enters Libra (0:51 AM till 10/23) 

During the next month, we are more sensitive to justice, beauty and balance. Artists are favored. Wonderful for a makeover and renewing our wardrobe. We seek cooperation and are drawn to creating harmonious relationships with others. 


Tuesday 9/24: Mercury Sextile Jupiter (2:01 PM) 

We could feel particularly self-confident, optimistic and trusting. Our enthusiasm attracts many beneficial opportunities. We should just beware to not bite more than we can chew and be careful of people too good to be true. Even if well meaning, they may promise us more than they realistically can deliver, leaving us disappointed. A great day to start a long-distance trip or to further our education. Our conversations take a more philosophical tone. We are very open to other cultures and religions.  


Wednesday 9/25: Venus Square Saturn (12:19 PM) 

We could feel lonelier than usual. It may be more difficult to enlist the support of others. A relationship that has been dysfunctional for a while could reach a breaking point, forcing us to look at it realistically. We may lack the money we need to pay our bills or have to work harder to make it.   


Thursday 9/26: Mercury Square Pluto (4:49 PM) 

A day best used keeping a low profile. Forcefulness tends to backfire. Outspokenness alienates others. Communications are at best frustrating, at worst, destructive. Ultimatums lead to dead end streets. Avoiding manipulative people and situations is essential today. 


Saturday 9/28: Venus Sextile Jupiter (4:40 PM) 

Social gatherings could be somewhat formal and boring. Potential disagreements are deflected with graciousness, patience, elegance and tolerance. Serenity attracts gifts, favors and positive opportunities.  


Monday 9/30: Venus Square Pluto (9:14 PM) 

Forcing an issue, demanding to be heard, issuing ultimatums will only backfire. Today, we could feel manipulated and that the people we are interacting with are particularly uncooperative, yet for the sake of peace and to obtain the best results, we need to adapt to others, remain graceful and work through stumbling blocks with poise and serenity. 



Wishing you an enchanted month of September!


In Loving Light.


August astrological forecast

August 2019

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Ehwaz “movement, progress”. If we have felt stagnant, this a great month to break the routine and actively go forward. A good time to move, change jobs, create a new career, engage in self-improvement activities and embellish our home. Outgrown patterns or relationships are likely to be shaken up, opening new horizons that help us breathe more freely. As we shine our light with generosity, we are able to face the future with confidence.

Jupiter turns direct on August 11 at 14º30’ Sagittarius. Its shadow period extends until November 6th. This degree is represented in the Sabian Symbols by: “The ground hog looking for its shadow on Ground-Hog Day, February 2nd”. For the past 4 months, we reflected on our life, asked ourselves profound questions, sought more knowledge. We are now ready to enter a new chapter in our journey marked by deeper wisdom, more clarity, renewed faith and heightened self-confidence. 


Uranus turns retrograde on August 11 and will remain so until January 11, 2020. Its shadow period will last until April 27, 2020. The degree covered in August (6º37’ – 6º28’ Taurus) is represented by: “The woman of Samaria at the ancestral well”. This retrogration helps us free ourselves from the past, prejudices and self-imposed limitations so that we may express our own uniqueness. Our values are changing, as is our relationship to money. Learning about the laws of abundance, helps us create what we need. Our renewed and purified relationship to Mother Nature feeds our soul in magical ways.


Saturn remains retrograde this whole month until September 18 between 15º36’ and 14º10’ Capricorn. Its shadow period lasts until December 24. The images associated with these degrees are: “School grounds filled with boys and girls in gymnasium suits” and “In a hospital, the children’s ward is filled with toys”. No matter the restrictions that are imposed upon us, the challenges we experience, the duties or obligations we have, if we intend on doing the best with what we have, focus on happiness and remain light, wonderful opportunities will arise from what looked like obstacles. A month to find inner wisdom and in the face of adversity, remain philosophical. 


Neptune remains retrograde this whole month until November 27. Its shadow period will last until March 17, 2020. The images representing the degrees covered in August (18º18’ -17º35’ Pisces) are: “A master instructing his disciple” and “In a gigantic tent, villagers witness a spectacular performance”. As the veil between dimensions thins, the clarity of our connection to our higher self develops. We are able to access purer states of consciousness, develop our psychic abilities further and remember more of our inner truth.


Pluto remains retrograde this whole month until October 3. Its shadow period continues until January 24, 2020. The degrees traveled in August (21º28’ – 20º53’ Capricorn) are represented by the following images: “By accepting defeat gracefully, a General reveals nobility of character” and “A relay race”. Cooperation with others, surrendering our ego and our pride, standing in our power with humility, help us understand and live more deeply the oneness of all that is.

Friday 8/2: Venus Square Uranus (2:59 AM)

A socially exciting day if we don’t become too erratic or crazy. Engaging in any impulsive behavior could cut us off from the people we love the most. If we are able to exercise self-control, this can be a very stimulating day with unexpected, positive surprises. 


Wednesday 8/7: Sun Trine Jupiter (0:31 AM)

A very pleasant day. We exude self-confidence, are poised and dignified and have faith in life. Our positive energy and elegance are most attractive to others. Positive opportunities abound today. Leisure time spent with loved ones is most beneficial.


Thursday 8/8: Venus Trine Jupiter (1:27 PM)

A very good day for social activities, artistic projects and feeling the warmth, approval and support of loved ones. Very good also for making money. As long as we don’t behave as if our funds were unlimited and are generous with those less favored than ourselves, our abundance has every chance of expanding.


Sunday 8/11: Jupiter turns direct (6:38 AM), Mercury enters Leo (12:45 PM till August 29), Uranus turns retrograde (7:26 PM)

Regarding Jupiter turning direct and Uranus turning retrograde, kindly refer to the opening paragraphs. During the next 3 weeks, our need to express ourselves more glamorously, to be more self-expressive and creative is enhanced. We seek the limelight and are more exuberant and warmer than usual in our interactions with others. Wonderful for planning an elegant event or attending an artistic performance.


Tuesday 8/13: Sun Conjunct Venus (11:07 PM)

A very pleasant day.  Our social life is smooth and peaceful. We are interested in beautifying our home and are focused on happiness. Excellent for any artistic project and mutually beneficial interactions with others.


Friday 8/16: Mercury Square Uranus (10:06 AM)

A day of unexpected and somewhat disturbing changes. People could be eccentric, erratic, cutting and cold. Words are likely to be hurtful. Plans are wrecked by strange circumstances. On the positive side, we could receive unusual information, be swept away by exciting news that free us from our daily routine and feel more independent than normal.


Saturday 8/17: Mars enters Virgo (10:19 PM till October 3)

During the next month and a half, Virgo natives are favored. A wonderful time to start a fast or a fitness program that is designed quite logically and requires persistence as well as attention to details. Perfect also for a good “spring” cleaning. Getting rid of all that no longer serves us is a positive use of this transit.


Wednesday 8/21: Venus enters Virgo (2:07 AM till September 14), Mercury Trine Jupiter (3:05 AM)

During the next 3 weeks, we are more concerned with our intellectual connection with another than by just his/her good looks. In our relationships, we could feel more critical than usual. Works of art are precise and detailed. Social contacts are entered for the purpose of learning. Today, more specifically, we feel particularly confident, trusting and optimistic. Our positive energy opens many valuable doors. We should however beware of not promising more than we can deliver and be somewhat cautious of those who come with grandiose projects that seem too good to be true. A great day to start an exciting long-distance trip that will open our minds and hearts to another culture.


Friday 8/23: The Sun enters Virgo (3:02 AM till September 23rd)

During the next month, we are very concerned with health, exercise and nutrition as well as developing our mind with intelligence. We could be more grounded, discriminative and hard-working than usual. Wonderful for work requiring attention to details and/or for starting a new area of study. 


Saturday 8/24: Venus Conjunct Mars (10:04 AM)

A day of balance between the masculine and the feminine. We are more likely to make efforts to keep our relationships harmonious and peaceful. Extra care could go into dressing nicely. Keeping things light prevents impulsive fights.


Monday 8/26: Venus Trine Uranus (8:37 AM)

We feel particularly sociable today. A relationship begun today is exciting and freeing but may not be very long lasting unless we leave each other a lot of space and freedom and remain very independent from each other. Our esthetic tastes could be eclectic and unusual. We are drawn to unique individuals who walk to the sound of their own drummer.


Wednesday 8/28: Mars Trine Uranus (3:51 AM)

If we had been looking for change, today is the day! Unusual activities are exciting and freeing. We feel particularly active and dynamic. We welcome unexpected occurrences with delight and embrace newness with a daring and constructive spirit.


Thursday 8/29: Mercury enters Virgo (0:48 AM till October 3rd), Sun Trine Uranus (8:13 PM)

During the next month, our mind is attentive to details, very organized and structured. We are not afraid of the hard work necessary to learn what will enable us to do our job well. We seek the company of people we admire the intelligence of. Great for clearing our desk of backlogged work and reorganizing our office. Today, more specifically, we should expect the unexpected. Plans may be disrupted, unusual events may take place, interesting new, highly individualistic and independent people could show up in our lives. The more we remain open, present to the present and flexible, the more valuable this day will be for our future.



Wishing you a wonderful month of August!


In Loving Light.


July astrological forecast

 

July 2019

 RUNE OF THE MONTH: Berkana “Right action”. Right action dictated by our consciousness,  comes from the heart. It is fair, compassionate and loving. It leads to new growth, opens new doors, creates new possibilities. With new growth, comes abundance, meaning, healing and regeneration. 

 

July is an eclipse month. Eclipses only happen a few times a year. They are always very important crossroads in our evolution. The houses they fall in  in our personal astrological chart, indicate the areas of our life that are about to significantly change. 

 

Solar Eclipse in Cancer (10º38’) on Tuesday 7/2 at 12:18 PM. This degree is symbolized by “A clown caricaturing well-known personalities”. In ancient civilizations, the clown was the sage. He made people laugh with the truth of who they were. He used humor to reveal what was, that all saw, but none had the courage to denounce. This eclipse stimulates our creativity in unusual ways. It also helps give a reality to our dreams and can also brings abundance to our lives, both financially and spiritually. It helps us become aware of our limitations but not be stopped by them. With focused work, integrity, optimism, faith in ourselves and discipline, we can build a castle of lasting values. 

 

Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn (24º04’) on Tuesday 7/16 at 2:38 PM. The Sabian Symbols associate the following image with this degree: “An oriental rug dealer in a store filled with precious ornamental rugs”. Very intense emotions which had been buried for a long time (maybe even lifetimes) could resurface both powerfully and obsessively. Conflicts between the sexes are more visible than ever. People’s dark secrets explode in the public’s eye, making it impossible not to prosecute them for their evil doings. Innocent victims are avenged. A critical point could be reach with the #me too movement. In our personal lives, intimate conflicts that had been successfully hidden until now, can no longer be ignored, leading to sometimes dramatic changes in our relationships. An eclipse that helps rebalance ancestral inequalities between men and women.

 

Mercury turns retrograde on Sunday 7/7 until Wednesday 7/31, between 4º27’ Leo and 23º58’ Cancer. Best to avoid buying or moving into a house during those 3 weeks. We could regret our purchase. But excellent for completing renovations we had placed on the backburner or had kept postponing. Wonderful also for family reunions and creative projects involving children.

 

Jupiter remains retrograde this whole month until August 11. Its shadow period extends until November 6th. The degrees covered in July (16º57’- 14º42’ Sagittarius) are represented in the Sabian Symbols by: “An Easter sunrise service draws a large crowd”, “Sea gulls fly around a ship in expectation of food” and “The ground hog looking for its shadow on ground-hog day. February 2nd.”  Integrity, or the lack thereof, is still at the forefront of collective concerns. Matters relating to the church, the law, education, religion, politics and immigration are also still very sensitive with truths being revealed all over the place. A wonderful time to reconnect with studies we had abandoned, to finish reading or writing a book that was collecting dust, and/or to travel to a distant country we hadn’t visited in a long time or had never seen. 

 

Saturn remains retrograde this whole month until September 18 between 17º49’ and 15º40’ Capricorn. Its shadow period lasts until December 24. The images associated with these degrees are: “The Union Jack flies from a British warship.” “A repressed woman finds a psychological release in nudism” and “school grounds filled with boys and girls in gymnasium suits”. A time to revisit our values, be clear on our ambitions and free ourselves from the boundaries and obligations imposed from without that no longer support the expression of our inner truth. 

 

Neptune remains retrograde this whole month until November 27. Its shadow period will last until March 17, 2020. The image representing the degree covered in July (18º42’- 18º20’ Pisces) is: “A Master instructing his disciple”. It is said that when the disciple is ready, the master appears. Our teachers can come in many forms. Incarnated as humans, but also disguised as animals, plants or “accidents”. Clearing our lives of empty noises and meaningless distractions, helps us listen to the deep wisdom we gained through ancient initiations. 

 

Pluto remains retrograde this whole month until October 3. Its shadow period continues until January 24, 2020. The degrees traveled in July (22º12’-21º19’ Capricorn) are symbolized by: “A soldier receiving two awards for bravery in combat”, and “By accepting defeat gracefully, a general reveals nobility of character”. Mastery comes from accepting our responsibilities, acting in the way our consciousness demands, living with honor and integrity, and doing our very best without attachment to the results. 

 

The Moon will be Void of Course (V/O –forming no major aspect with any planet before entering the following sign-):

  • On 7/1 between 2:48 PM and 6:24 PM: when the Moon enters Cancer.

This month’s intentional meditation started on Monday 6/17, when we took out as many blank sheets of paper as we would have intentions and placed them near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they would bask in the light of the Full Moon in Sagittarius.

Monday 7/1: Mars enters Leo (4:20 PM till August 19)

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph. 

 

Wednesday 7/3: Venus enters Cancer (8:18 AM till August 22) 

During the next 7 weeks, our heart is centered on safety, our home, our children, comfort, money and food (not necessarily in that order!). A wonderful time for family reunions and to make our home more cozy. A time also to pamper ourselves with some tender loving self-care and be creative.

 

Sunday 7/7: Mercury turns retrograde (4:15 PM till Wednesday 7/31 at 8:58 PM)  

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.

 

Monday 7/8: Venus Sextile Uranus (8:31 AM), Mercury Conjunct Mars (3:28 PM) 

An unexpected romance could prove exciting and freeing. It will only last however if we live in the present, are devoid of jealousy and control, remain independent and focused on our own interests. Our communications today are direct, bordering on the combative. Best to stay out of potential arguments and aggressive words we might later regret. 

 

Tuesday 7/9: Sun Opposition Saturn (10:07 AM) 

Much seriousness,  responsibility and discipline are demanded of us today. We could feel somewhat depressed in the face of all the work that is awaiting us. Best to complete all the tedious tasks that are in front of us, one at a time, and to meet today’s challenges with dignity and courage.

 

Wednesday 7/10: Sun Trine Neptune (9:32 PM) 

A day of enchantment, inspiration and an appreciation of the beauty surrounding us. Artists are favored today. Great for meditation, spiritual work as well as seeking peace. Our world feels balanced today. Our heart is compassionate and generous. Our imagination soars. 

 

Thursday 7/11: Mars Square Uranus (10:59 AM) 

We should be careful when operating a motor vehicle, sharp objects or during athletic activities as tempers could flare up easily. Anger is likely to cause rash actions and sudden accidents.  

 

Sunday 7/14: Sun Opposition Pluto (7:46 AM) 

It is important that we do not oppose passive-aggressive behavior to our leadership abilities being challenged. Compromising should not make us lose our integrity. It is essential that we remain dignified and cooperative while thinking of the benefit of all.   

 

Tuesday 7/16: Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn (2:38 PM), Venus Opposition Saturn (10:34 PM) 

Regarding the Lunar Eclipse, kindly refer to the opening paragraph. Today, more specifically, we could feel lonelier than usual. Social encounters could be somewhat heavy and boring. We could need to re-evaluate an existing love relationship as well as our attitude towards romantic involvements in general. Best to be financially careful. 

 

Thursday 7/18: Venus Trine Neptune (11:03 AM) 

Our sensitivity, compassion and generosity of spirit gain us much support and appreciation. We could feel more romantic than usual. As we connect to the soul of another, a love relationship could feel particularly enchanted. We spontaneously tap into the laws of abundance. Money could come to us for what we need it for, in seemingly magical ways.

 

Friday 7/19: Mercury enters Cancer (0:07 AM till 8/11) 

During the next three weeks, our focus is on family, food and security. Our imagination could be enhanced. Our relationship to children is heightened. Creating a safe heaven for ourselves and making our home more comfortable, becomes important. 

 

Sunday 7/21: Venus Opposition Pluto (1:30 AM), Sun Conjunct Mercury (5:35 AM) 

A day of clear communications. We are direct in our conversations, practical and efficient. It is important not to yield to manipulative individuals and best to not get swept away by emotional undercurrents. For the sake of peace, it is best to stay gracious, extend ourselves towards others and cooperate as much as possible. 

 

Monday 7/22: Sun enters Leo (7:51 PM till Friday 8/23) 

During the next month, we feel more romantic, drawn to glamor and expansive than usual. Performing arts could be particularly attractive.  

 

Wednesday 7/24: Mercury Conjunct Venus (5:27 PM) 

A good day for enjoyable social encounters, gathering with friends and pleasant conversations. We speak with serenity. Our trustworthiness draws the support of our environment.

 

Thursday 7/25: Mars Trine Jupiter (5:22 AM) 

Our optimism and enthusiasm create most beneficial outcomes. Excellent for expanding our business, attracting financial abundance, being adventurous, planning an exciting trip and being generous. We feel particularly hospitable and speak our truth in a way that forces the respect of others.

 

Saturday 7/27: Venus enters Leo (6:54 PM till Wednesday 8/21 at 2:07 AM) 

During the next 3 weeks, our emotional expression is more dramatic. We feel romantic and attracted to glamourous events. A wonderful time to attend elegant parties, mingle with beautiful people, enjoy a makeover and renew our wardrobe.  

 

Monday 7/29: Sun Square Uranus (4:13 PM) 

New situations, changed schedules, unexpected occurrences abound today making us feel scattered and erratic. We could reconnect with someone we haven’t seen in a long time. Despite the tensions, impatience and frustrations that are likely to disrupt our plans, this is a rather exciting and freeing day. 

 

Wednesday 7/31: Mercury turns direct (8:58 PM) 

Today, we could still lose our keys and miss a flight. Communications are likely to be a little muddled, but they are on their way to returning to normality. Tomorrow, all will be clear again.

 

Wishing you an exciting month of July!

 

In Loving Light.

June astrological forecast

June 2019

 RUNE OF THE MONTH: Uruz “support”. From time to time, we all need encouragement and the sense that our backs are covered no matter what. Taking the time to appreciate ourselves and others, offer a positive word, have helpful thoughts and want the best for all, is where a happy society begins. Let us focus this month on random acts of kindness and whatever our circumstances seem, trust in benevolent outcomes.

 

Jupiter remains retrograde this whole month until August 11. Its shadow period extends until November 6th. The degrees covered in June (20º38’–17º03’ Sagittarius) are represented in the Sabian Symbols by: “A child and a dog wearing borrowed glasses”, “In an old-fashioned northern village men cut the ice of a frozen pond for use during the summer”, “Pelicans menaced by the behavior and refuse of men seek after areas for bringing up their young”, “Children playing on the beach, their heads protected by sunbonnets”. It is our integrity that helps us navigate the chaos, illusions, lies and corruption of our environment with dignity and elegance. Even in the midst of illusions and turmoil, there is always a place of inner peace and power from which, like the phoenix from its ashes, we can rise again, stronger than ever before. 

 

Saturn remains retrograde this whole month until September 18 between 19º42’ and 17º53’ Capricorn. Its shadow period lasts until December 24. The images associated with these degrees are: “A hidden choir is singing during a religious service”, “A five year old child carrying a bag filled with groceries”, “The union jack flag flies from a British warship”. A month to fulfill our duties and obligations with dignity and courage. The more quietly responsible, disciplined and grounded we are, the more profound our growth will be.

 

Neptune turns retrograde on June 21st at 18º44’ Pisces, and will remain so until November 27. Its shadow period will last until March 17, 2020. The image representing this degree is: “A master instructing his disciple”. Our attention this month should turn to our inner spiritual growth. As the saying goes: “when the disciple is ready, the master appears”.  The opposite is also true. Masters come in all shapes and forms. It could be a child, a pet or a painful event in our lives forcing us to re-examine our motivations and re-direct the course of our actions. As we open to the teachings crossing our path, we start to change in ways defying our own understanding.

 

Pluto remains retrograde this whole month until October 3. Its shadow period continues until January 24, 2020. The degree traveled in June (22º49’ – 22º14’ Capricorn) is symbolized by: “A soldier receiving two awards for bravery in combat”. We are required to face with courage the darkest places within ourselves and not back down in the face of adversity. Our power is being tested, as is our determination. Mastery of self is rewarded.

This month’s intentional meditation started on Saturday 5/18, when we took out as many blank sheets of paper as we would have intentions and placed them near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they would bask in the light of the Full Moon in Scorpio. Once that moment had passed, we gathered our Full Moon charged blank sheets and placed them in a folder.

Sunday 6/2: Venus Trine Pluto (8:38 PM)

A wonderful day for a passionate date. A relationship begun today feels predestined, going much deeper than a mere physical attraction. A feeling of past life recognition permeates that encounter and we could become fascinated by that person. In an existing romantic involvement we become aware of our dilemmas or blocks to intimacy. Our charisma is greatly enhanced today. Inasmuch as we listen to our intuition, a financial deal is particularly conducive to acquiring wealth and power. 

 

Tuesday 6/4: Mercury enters Cancer (1:05 PM till 6/26)

During these next 3 weeks, communications are more subjective than objective. We could feel more than we think and tend to take comments more personally than we usually do. We are concerned with family, food and safety. Our imagination is triggered. Excellent for designers and visual artists. A day to enjoy caring exchanges with children and animals.

 

Friday 6/7: Mercury Sextile Uranus (7:16 AM)

Communications and social encounters are lively, varied and exciting. Our curiosity is triggered by unusual people walking to the sound of their own drummer. New intellectual horizons open before us. Attention to details may not be our forte today as we may be too excited or scattered to focus on little things.  

 

Saturday 6/8: Venus enters Gemini (6:37 PM till 7/3)

During the next 3 weeks, our social life should become lighter and more varied. We could seek, or be invited to, fun gatherings exposing us to people who expand our intellectual horizons. A romantic attraction could be exciting but short lived for lack of true commitment. Money comes and goes.  

 

Sunday 6/9: Sun Square Neptune (12:34 PM)

We could feel vaguely anxious today for no logical reason. A situation or a person could leave us uneasy without us really being able to pinpoint why. We could feel drained by circumstances and unusually confused as to what next step to take. Best to lay low today and avoid contacts with characters prone to deception.

 

Monday 6/10: Sun Opposition Jupiter (8:28 AM)

A wonderful day to congratulate ourselves for our achievements and keep expanding our dreams. Our success is measured by our integrity and our self-worth. We could be invited to an elegant gathering. If we can, best to delay an important expense as it may today be a lot more costly than it is worth.

 

Thursday 6/13: Mars Trine Neptune (11:12 PM)

A day of reverie and becoming fascinated by artists or inspiring spiritual people who trigger our imagination and enrich our consciousness. We could be particularly susceptible to alcohol and drugs. Best to keep those under control. Wonderful for an idyllic vacation in a dream location that enhances our appreciation for beauty and helps us unwind in magical ways.

 

Sunday 6/16: Mercury Trine Neptune (4:43 AM), Mercury Opposition Saturn (7:00 AM), Jupiter Square Neptune (8:18 AM)

While something we really wanted may come to pass, we could feel pessimistic and somewhat depressed. Oscillating between our visions and a grey reality can take its toll. Financial matters could be disappointing. Someone in our life is likely to be deceptive. We could feel anxious without quite understanding why. Important to stay realistic without losing sight of our dreams.

 

Tuesday 6/18: Saturn Sextile Neptune (4:40 AM), Mercury Conjunct Mars (9:05 AM)

A day to strike a positive balance between our dreams and reality, thus manifesting our visions in concrete reality. A stable condition in our lives could be dissolving. Allowing it to disappear without us resisting, helps us find within the rubbles the seeds of a new becoming. Our exchanges with others are particularly direct today. We courageously call a spade a spade and leave no uncertainty as to what our intentions are. We should however beware when driving, as impulsive reactions could cause harm.

 

Wednesday 6/19: Mercury Opposition Pluto (3:52 AM), Mars Opposition Pluto (8:21 PM)

Best to compromise today, keep our opinions to ourselves and meet others mid-way. Being too forceful in our communications could create sharp animosities. We may feel pushed to make important changes leading to new beginnings. A cycle ends while another starts that bring us closer to our objectives.   

 

Friday 6/21: Neptune turns retrograde (7:36 AM), Summer Solstice/the Sun enters Cancer (8:54 AM till July 22)

Regarding Neptune retrograde, kindly refer to the opening paragraph. During the next month, our sensitivity is heightened. Artistically inclined individuals are drawn to cooking, drawing and painting. Decorating our house, making our home comfortable, nurturing and safe becomes a priority. Taking care of children and creating harmonious family relationships occupies much of our energy. A wonderful time to pamper ourselves and cherish those we love.

 

Monday 6/24: Venus Square Neptune (2:59 AM)

A relationship which seems too good to be true, could indeed be just that. A person we are intimately involved with could prove untrustworthy and deceptive, confused and confusing. Delusions of grandeur could mar money matters and make us believe in pipe dreams. We need to beware of people promising great financial benefits that are nothing but scams aimed at depleting us of our resources.

 

Wednesday 6/26: Mercury enters Leo (5:20 PM till 7/19)

During the next 3 weeks, our way of thinking and talking is more dramatic. We could be attracted to the limelight as well as to creative art forms enabling us to express our uniqueness. Our generosity of spirit shines great light and warmth upon those we encounter.

 

Thursday 6/27: Sun Sextile Uranus (10:44 AM)

A day to expect the unexpected. Plans could be wrecked. Unusual circumstances could occur. Exciting people could cross our path offering opportunities we had never thought of. The more flexible and present to each moment we are, the greater the benefits of this exciting and freeing day.

 

Wishing you an amazing month of June!

 

In Loving Light.

May astrological forecast

May 2019 

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Hagalaz “challenges”. Bumps in the road

both test our resolve and keep us on our toes. Without them, our

journey would become stale and probably even downright boring.

Projection into the unknown helps us unearth the skills and talents we

may not even have known we had, which in turn promote inner growth.

 

Jupiter remains retrograde this whole month until August 11. Its

shadow period extends until November 6 th . The degrees covered in

May (23º41’ to 20º45’ Sagittarius) are represented in the Sabian

Symbols by: “A bluebird perched on the gate of a cottage”, “A group

of immigrants as they fulfill the requirements of entrance into a new

country”, “A Chinese laundry”, “A child and a dog wearing borrowed

eyeglasses”. We are being asked to examine our level of ethics,

tolerance and compassion. What is our attitude towards foreigners

and people who are different from us, in general? What do we believe

 

in? Do we walk our talk? Are we as transparent as we would like to

think we are? Are we free from what others think, or do we fake it

so that we might be seen as belonging? How true to ourselves are we?

Saturn remains retrograde this whole month until September 18

between 20º31’ and 19º45’ Capricorn. Its shadow period lasts until

December 24. The images associated with these degrees are: “A

relay race”, “A hidden choir is singing during a religious service”. We

are being challenged in our mastery, our self-sufficiency and our

discipline in becoming all that we are in our divinity. As we help

ourselves, the heavens help us. Initially, we only have ourselves to

rely on. The journey towards enlightenment is paved with good

intentions, but only do our commitment and unrelenting efforts bring

us to inner and outer completion.

Pluto remains retrograde this whole month until October 3. Its

shadow period continues until January 24, 2020. The degrees

traveled in May (23º08’ – 22º50’ Capricorn) are symbolized by: “A

woman entering a convent” and “A soldier receiving two awards for

bravery in combat”. Passion and commitment are one and the same. No

matter what path we choose, it is by embracing it wholeheartedly

that we shall reap the laurels of recognition and find inner

fulfillment.

 

The Moon will be Void of Course (V/O –forming no major aspect

with any planet before entering the following sign-):

Wednesday 5/1: Mercury Square Saturn (1:50 AM)

We could feel laden with responsibilities, somewhat discouraged and

having to deal with tasks requiring great seriousness of purpose. Best

to keep quiet, tackle the work that needs to be done with focus and

discipline.

 

Thursday 5/2: Mercury Square Pluto (2:49 PM), Mercury Trine

Jupiter (8:59 PM)

Communications could lead to dead-ends. We are likely to come up

against strong personalities. Forcing issues is not helpful. Best to lay

low, keep our opinions to ourselves and focus on unity. Later tonight,

we have to be careful not to give in to the opposite and promise more

than we can deliver. Our exuberance and positive energy open new

doors.

Sunday 5/5: Mars Opposition Jupiter (2:57 PM)

Not a good day to gamble, nor go on a shopping spree as we could end

up foolishly spending more money than what we are buying is worth.

Great for a dynamic adventure. Our vital energy is at an all times

high. Excellent also for defending our ideas with courage and

panache.

Monday 5/6: Mercury enters Taurus (11:25 AM) till 5/21

During the next 3 weeks, our thinking is practical. We tend to stay

with our thoughts and ideas for a while before making an enlightened

decision. We could be drawn to nature and inspired to protect

Mother Earth.

Tuesday 5/7: Venus Square Saturn (6:26 AM)

Social encounters could feel more like work than fun. Our

relationships could be strained and somewhat disappointing when not

downright depressing. We could feel lonelier than usual. Best to rely

on ourselves, plan a project with attention to its details and focus on

insuring our security.

 

Wednesday 5/8: Mercury Conjunct Uranus (7:22 AM), Sun

Sextile Neptune (7:53 PM)

A day to expect the unexpected. Changes in plans disrupt our

schedule. Unusual social encounters open new doors. Exciting ideas

free us from the known. We could feel particularly inspired. Artists

could come up with some of their best work. Channelers and healers

are likely to experience major breakthroughs in their perceptions.

Thursday 5/9: Venus Trine Jupiter (9:56 AM), Venus Square

Pluto (10:18 AM)

Our social life is particularly enriching and adventurous today. We

feel generous, warm hearted, tolerant and positive. We could be

invited to some elegant event that enables us to dress up and mingle

with interesting people, some of whom are connected to other

countries. We should however be careful not to give in to jealousy,

envy or possessiveness. Emotional insecurities could surface either in

ourselves or others, revealing where blocks to intimacy lie. Using

common sense in our financial transactions is a must today as we

could be drawn into spending more than we have or fall prey to a

scheme that is not as honest as it looks.

Saturday 5/11: Sun Trine Saturn (2:19 AM)

A day to get noticed by those in positions of power. We stand in our

impression on people in positions of power.

Our inner knowingness helps us see through lies and illusions. A day to

stand in our power and mastery to make real changes both in

ourselves and our environment.

Tuesday 5/14: Venus Sextile Mars (6:58 AM)

A day of balance of the masculine and the feminine within us. Our

romantic relationships are peaceful and harmonious. Social contacts

are pleasant and uplifting. Moderate efforts create positive financial

rewards.

Wednesday 5/15: Venus enters Taurus (2:46 AM) till June 8,

Mercury Sextile Neptune (6:21 PM), Mars enters Cancer (8:10

PM) till July 1

During the next two months, Cancer natives are favored. Our actions

aim towards ensuring our safety and security, as well as protecting

those we cherish. During the next month, our sensuality is enhanced.

We seek comfort, beauty and peace. We are attracted to nature and

the simple pleasures of the body. Nurturing ourselves brings a great

sense of contentment and well-being. Today, more specifically, is

particularly inspiring for artists, healers and channelers who are able

to access higher dimensions and perceive, as well as share, the magic

of life.

Thursday 5/16: Mercury Trine Saturn (4:09 PM)

A good day for clearing our desk of backlogged work. Our thoughts

and communications are serious and grounded. Our discipline and

focus are aimed at furthering our ambitions. We are particularly

efficient today.

 

Friday 5/17: Mercury Trine Pluto (10:46 PM)

We are able to X-ray situations and people. Our insights into existing

conditions are strong and clear. We could become the spokesperson

of a silent majority. Our words make a lasting impression on those we

meet. People trust what we say, sensing that it doesn’t come from

some book we read, but from the depths of our experience and

knowingness.

Saturday 5/18: Venus Conjunct Uranus (9:16 AM)

Our social life becomes interesting. We could encounter unusual,

highly individualistic characters enticing us to create more freedom

in our lives. We could get caught in a whirlwind romance that is fun

even if only short lived. Money comes to us unexpectedly, ushering

new opportunities.

Tuesday 5/21: Sun enters Gemini (0:59 AM) till June 21,

Mercury enters Gemini (3:52 AM) till June 4, Sun Conjunct

Mercury (6:07 AM)

During the next month our curiosity is enhanced. We seek

communication, are attracted to learning, traveling and stimulating

new acquaintances. Today, more specifically, is very good for

attending a social event, mingling with new people, studying, reading

and exchanging interesting ideas.

Wednesday 5/22: Mars Sextile Uranus (7:46 AM)

We could feel bored with the usual routine. Bursts of physical energy

make us want to mix up our usual routine, try something new and/or

start an exciting new venture. Creative solutions are found to the

 

challenges at hand. We should however exercise caution when driving

or operating sharp objects.

Wednesday 5/29: Mercury Square Neptune (6:23 PM)

Not a good day to sign legal documents as we could miss the fine

print. We could feel a little confused, vaguely anxious and quite

dreamy. Misunderstandings might occur easily. A situation could seem

very different from what it really is. Someone could be less than

honest with us, revealing only half of the truth. Spiritual imagination

could take the place of common sense. Excellent really only for

artistic creativity. But otherwise, laying low may be a good choice

today, as we could also feel quite drained.

Thursday 5/30: Venus Sextile Neptune (9:51 AM), Mercury

Opposition Jupiter (8:12 PM)

Our senses are particularly elevated today, allowing us to see the

beauty in all things and connect in oneness to the divinity in all beings.

Artists are particularly inspired. A relationship begun today connects

us to another at a soul level. We should however beware of promising

more than we can deliver and falling for schemes too good to be true.

Thursday 5/31: Venus Trine Saturn (8:26 AM)

We don’t court illusions today and approach our relationships with

much realism. We are likely to walk away from a romantic involvement

that has been shaky for already some time, while a good one becomes

more solid. Sound financial decisions mark this day. We favor saving

rather than spending and are focused on ensuring our monetary

safety.

 Wishing you a magical month of May!

In Loving Light.

April astrological forecast

April 2019

 

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Thurisaz “compromise”. This month, making concessions without betraying our truth helps us restore or maintain harmony. As we meet others half way, honoring both our needs and those of another, we demonstrate our good will, thus helping strike a happy balance that benefits all involved.

 Jupiter turns retrograde on Wednesday April 10 till August 11. Its shadow period extends until November 6th. The degrees covered in April (24º21’-23º45’ Sagittarius) are represented in the Sabian Symbols by: “A chubby boy on a hobby-horse” and “A bluebird perched on the gate of a cottage”. A wonderful period of time to dream big and expand our horizons in ways enabling us to step out of our comfort zone. Embracing new experiences, traveling to places we have never been to before and studying a new topic of interest, are all great ways of creating more magic in our lives.

Pluto turns retrograde on Wednesday April 24 till October 3. Its shadow period continues until January 24, 2020. The degree traveled in April (23º08’Capricorn) is symbolized by: “A woman entering a convent”. A month to go deeply within, root ourselves in our power and focus on what is essential in our lives. A good time to simplify our daily reality, clear our closets of things that no longer serve us and give more importance to our spiritual life.

Saturn turns retrograde on Monday April 29 till September 18 at 20º31’ Capricorn. Its shadow period lasts until December 24. The image associated with this degree is: “A relay race”. Mastery requires that we become self-sufficient and take full responsibility for our actions. As we stand in our power, we become a strong link in the chain of humanity, and example for others of strength and structure.

March astrological forecast

March 2019

 

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Jera “harvest”. We reap what we sow. Good seeds result in strong plants. So do good emotions and good thoughts create positive circumstances. If we dislike certain aspects of our lives, it may be important to go back to what created such a reality and if we can, reverse certain of those choices by making new ones. In the origin of all things lies the key to their subsequent development.

Mercury is retrograde from March 5 till March 28 between 29º36’ and 18º08’ Pisces. Its shadow period remains until April 17th. We are called to revisit our perceptions of the divine. Mystical concepts are attractive. Projects requiring both imagination and inspiration return to the forefront. Artists and light workers are particularly favored. The natural development of our intuition and psychic abilities helps us see beyond the veil. We become particularly sensitive to music, vibrations and frequencies. Our nocturnal dreams could be specially vivid and even premonitory. 

 

Uranus enters Taurus on March 7, 2019 until April 27, 2026. The next seven years are key in reshaping completely our perception of money. The rampant corruption in the current banking system is likely to be exposed. New currencies develop. Original, humanitarian ideas lead to wealth. More and more projects involving people-helping-people create mutually beneficial financial situations. A deeper understanding of the laws of abundance enable many to reach the mastery that frees them from the matrix. We also become more concerned with the ecological situation of the Earth. Growing our own food through both ancient and futuristic technologies, protecting the sacredness of nature become a priority.

 

The Moon will be Void of Course (V/O –forming no major aspect with any planet before entering the following sign-):

  • On Saturday 3/2 between 10:47 AM and 11:06 AM: when the Moon enters Aquarius.

This month’s intentional meditation started on Tuesday February 19, when we took out as many blank sheets of paper as we would have intentions and placed them near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they would bask in the light of the Full Moon in Virgo. Once that moment had passed, we gathered our Full Moon charged blank sheets and placed them in a folder.

 

On Wednesday 3/6, on the New Moon in Pisces, take out your blank full moon charged papers and write on each a concise, positive intention. Place them on a balcony, in a garden or near a window so that they are out by exactly 8:04 AM. Once that moment has passed, staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams…

 

Next month’s intentional meditation, begins on Wednesday 3/20. Take out as many blank sheets of papers as you will have.  intentions and place them near a window, on a balcony, or in a garden so that they bask in the light of the Full Moon in Libra at exactly 6:43 PM. Once that moment has passed, gather your Full Moon charged blank sheets and place them in a folder.

 

Friday 3/1: Venus Square Uranus (4:31 AM), Venus enters Aquarius (8:45 AM till 3/26)

Impulsive words and actions could lead to sudden alienations from loved ones. If we are not cautious enough, money could be lost suddenly. Unexpected abundance could also come in unusual ways requiring however that we do not collapse ourselves in this windfall and lose all sense of proportion. During the next month, friendship assumes a more important role than normal. Our social circle expands. We are more individualistic and drawn to eccentric characters. Modern art feels attractive.

 

Tuesday 3/5: Mercury turns retrograde (10:19 AM till March 28)

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.

 

Wednesday 3/6: Uranus enters Taurus (0:35 AM till April 26, 2026), Sun Conjunct Neptune (5:01 PM)

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.  We could feel somewhat dreamy today. Not such a good day for dealing with precise data and legal papers, but excellent for meditation, artistic activities, peace, beauty and harmony.

 

Friday 3/8: Sun Sextile Saturn (11:10 PM)

An excellent day to complete the tasks at hand, redefine our goals and further our ambitions. We are disciplined, focused, serious and grounded.  

 

Sunday 3/10: Mars Sextile Neptune (9:21 AM)

Unusual activities are attractive. We seek new experiences triggering our imagination and creativity. Impractical ideas stimulate our excitement only to very quickly fade into oblivion. A certain boredom, a vague dissatisfaction help us seek different opportunities.

 

Wednesday 3/13: Sun Sextile Pluto (7:25 AM), Sun Square Jupiter (6:29 PM)

A day to express our authority without forcing any issue. Cooperation helps us bring harmony to a group while respecting each person’s needs. We could be prone to exaggeration, buy a product largely overpriced or bite more than we can chew, but on the whole, if we remain grounded and stay without reasonable boundaries, we could find that we are able to accomplish much today.

 

Thursday 3/14: Mars Trine Saturn (3:01 AM), Sun Conjunct Mercury (6:48 PM)

Our actions are cautious and deliberate, enabling us to consolidate our goals and objectives. Communications are pleasant and direct.

 

Friday 3/15: Mercury Square Jupiter (4:17 PM)

We should beware to not promise more than we can deliver or believe blindly those who exaggerate a situation, turning all that glitters into gold. If we remain within healthy boundaries and keep our common sense intact, our positive energy can open interesting doors.

 

Saturday 3/16: Mercury Sextile Pluto (6:11 AM)

We are able today to X-ray situations and people. Collaboration produces much better results than forceful ultimatums. Our thoughts and words carry a special kind of charisma and magic that affect others deeply. We are drawn to metaphysics, are attracted by the mysteries of life, and are able to unravel much that was previously hidden from our consciousness.

 

Sunday 3/17: Mercury Sextile Mars (8:23 PM)

Communications are positive, direct and dynamic. We call a spade a spade and mean what we say. We have the courage of our beliefs and deal with the challenges at hand with energy and creativity. 

 

Wednesday 3/20: Mercury Sextile Saturn (7:28 AM), the Sun enters Aries (2:59 PM till 4/20), Mars Trine Pluto (4:37 AM)  

Our thoughts and communications are serious, grounded and mature. We express our ideas with responsibility and wisdom, seeking the advice of those more established than ourselves. During this coming month, we could feel daring and adventurous, seeking positive actions and dynamic new experiences. Very little should stand in our way today, as we move forward with intensity, focus and courage.  

 

Thursday 3/21: Venus Square Mars (1:07 AM), Venus Sextile Jupiter (7:16 AM)

Competitive endeavors with friends can be particularly envigorating. Obstacles stimulate impulsive actions. Harmony is destroyed by brooding, negative behavior, while courageous, honest actions and conversations help break down obstacles in relationships. We should however beware of excesses in pleasure, food and drinks as we may not be too clear on when to stop.    

 

Sunday 3/24: Mercury Conjunct Neptune (10:26 AM)

Great for artistic creativity and spiritual work inasmuch as we do not fall into the trap of spiritual imagination. Not so good however for anything requiring attention to details as we could miss some of the fine print.

 

Tuesday 3/26: Venus enters Pisces (12:43 PM till April 17)

During the next three weeks, we could feel more sensitive, compassionate, tolerant and empathic than usual. Beauty, peace, harmony and elegance are particularly attractive. We may feel less materialistic than usual and are able to tap more easily into the laws of abundance of the universe. A very blessed time for artists who could be particularly inspired. Wonderful also for mystical work.

 

Wednesday 3/27: Venus Sextile Uranus (9:44 AM):

A romance begun today respects our freedom and independence while providing much excitement. An existing relationship is renewed and redefined to help the soaring of each individual. Unusual forms of art, design or fashion are fascinating. Our social circle expands to include highly original new friends. Money is made in surprising ways.

 

Thursday 3/28: Mercury turns direct (6:59 AM)

We might still lose our keys, erase messages without having listened to them, miss a plane and misunderstand directions, but for the most part, communications return to normal.

 

Saturday 3/30: Mars enters Gemini (11:12 PM till May 15)

During the next month and a half, Gemini natives are favored. Others could feel a little scattered. We could have our irons in too many fires and be hyper-active. Great for outdoor activities and mental gymnastics!

 

Wishing you a productive month of March!

 

In Loving Light.

February 2019

 

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Gebo “commitment”. In the notion of commitment is the concept of promise, pledge and engagement. It is only by committing fully to a path, a person, a project, values, that we can reap true results. When we are wishy-washy about things, when we waver too much, when we don’t honor our word and don’t keep our promises, we don’t accomplish much, seem superficial or worse, unstable, and become untrustworthy to others. If the path we committed to is not the best for us, just the act of giving ourselves fully to it will open another one, more adapted to our needs. If we stay at the surface of things, we shall keep starting over and over without ever accomplishing anything of value. On the other hand, if the path we chose proves not to have been the best, all the efforts we shall have put into the creation of what we thought we wanted, are never lost nor in vain.

 

 

No retrograde planet this month! This is extremely rare. For once, we are all caught up! No re-visiting any aspect of our lives nor tying loose ends! A time to move forward with no strings attached.

 

The year of the Earth Pig starts on Feb 5 until January 24, 2020. A year of benevolent efforts to reconcile differences and install peace in troubled parts of the world. On a personal level, a great year for reinventing ourselves, clearing our debts and creating new financial opportunities. Some people may disappear from our lives, while others, more in harmony with our frequency, join our close circle of trusted friends. Communication, as well as studying are enhanced. An excellent period of time to let go of habits that no longer serve us and also for enjoying life more. If we have been thinking of taking a sabbatical, this would be the perfect year to do so! Marriages and births multiply this year. A significant year for bringing more joy  into our life and indulging in more pleasure but without excess!

This month’s intentional meditation started on Sunday January 20 at 9:16 PM, when we took out as many blank sheets of paper as we would have intentions and placed them near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they would bask in the light of the Full Moon in Leo (Solar Eclipse). Once that moment had passed, we gathered our Full Moon charged blank sheets and placed them in a folder.

 

On Monday 2/4, take out your blank full moon charged papers and write on each a concise, positive intention. Place them on a balcony, in a garden or near a window so that they are out by exactly 1:04 PM. Once that moment has passed, staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams…

 

Next month’s intentional meditation, begins on Tuesday 2/19. Take out as many blank sheets of papers as you will have.  intentions and place them near a window, on a balcony, or in a garden so that they bask in the light of the Full Moon in Virgo at exactly 7:54 AM. Once that moment has passed, gather your Full Moon charged blank sheets and place them in a folder.

 

 

Friday 2/1: Mars Square Pluto (7:15 PM)

Impulsive actions could be particularly destructive today, both mentally and physically. If we are not careful, stress, jealousies, undercurrents of anger or violence could undermine our efforts. Facing those situations with honesty, integrity and courage may be the only way to create positive changes. This will however require much determination and inner strength on our part as the opposition could be unexpectedly insidious.

 

Saturday 2/2: Venus Trine Uranus (3:40 PM)

Exciting social encounters mark this day. We could have a sudden, unusual attraction to a person who frees us to be ourselves. The connection might however be more fun than truly enduring. We could be inspired by new ways of making money. Our esthetic tastes are modern, even futuristic in some cases, definitely drawing us to the unusual.  

 

Sunday 2/3: Mercury Sextile Jupiter (1:55 PM), Venus enters Capricorn (2:30 PM till March 1)

Our honesty and integrity with ourselves and others, is particularly rewarded today. A great day to learn a new language or journey to another country. Our mind is open, tolerant, creative and positive. Our contacts with others are warm and generous. During the coming month, we take our love relationships seriously. We might even prefer to be alone rather than with the wrong person. A good time to either commit to another if the connection has been good, or separate if our path together has been rocky for a while. We are also wiser in our financial dealings.

 

Thursday 2/7: Sun Sextile Jupiter (4:33 PM), Mercury Sextile Mars (5:25 PM)

Opportunities to further our career and complete our projects abound. We feel positive, confident and in mastery of our talents. Our positive energy opens many new doors. We are direct in our speech, are not afraid to take initiatives and to forge ahead with courage and energy.

 

Saturday 2/9: Mercury Sextile Uranus (2:53 PM)

A day of unplanned changes and unexpected encounters. The more flexible we are, the easier and the more fun this day will be! As we flow present to present, from moment to moment, we are likely to find that what could have seemed like a frustrating disruption, ends up opening new exciting opportunities.   

 

Sunday 2/10: Mercury enters Pisces (2:51 AM till April 17)

During the next two months, our mind is very sensitive to vibrations, the invisible, impressions and signs. Artistic creation is particularly favored. Our appreciation of beauty is enhanced with a greater need for peace, harmony and balance. Our thoughts are inspired. Violence and dark images could be more traumatizing than usual. We seek oneness, compassion and love in all our interactions with others.

 

Tuesday 2/12: Mars Conjunct Uranus (10:19 PM)

Caution should be exercised while operating a motor vehicle or using sharp objects. Tempers could flare up suddenly and brutally. Best to stay away from any aggressive individual or potentially intense situation. Violent sports should also be avoided today, as accidents could very quickly shift our lives for the worse.

 

Thursday 2/14: Mars enters Taurus (2:51 AM till March 31st)

During the next month and a half, Taurus natives are favored. We ruminate the consequences before leaping into action.  Our projects are thought through in a slow, deliberate and practical manner. We feel more comfortable in nature. Our sensuality is also highlighted. A need to take good care of our body is enhanced. Getting some physical pampering could be a very good use of this transit.

 

Sunday 2/17: Venus Sextile Neptune (0:45 AM), Sun Sextile Uranus (11:54 PM)

A relationship could seem most enchanted and magical and may well stem from a deep soul connection. Artists and healers are particularly inspired today. We should also expect the unexpected and meet sudden changes of plans with excitement as they are likely to prove particularly freeing in the long run. Under this transit, the more we go with the flow, the more gifts we shall receive.

 

Monday 2/18: Venus Conjunct Saturn (2:52 AM), Sun enters Pisces (3:04 PM till March 20th), Mercury Conjunct Neptune (10:37 PM)

Today, a sense of seriousness and responsibility permeates our relationships, making us feel particularly lonely. A relationship begun under this transit will start slowly and carefully, making it very enduring. One that has been shaky for a while, could come to its logical conclusion, without any sense of pain or drama. With this planetary influence, we are not so good with details. Silence, solitude and inspiring topics are attractive. We are drawn to spirituality and beauty.  Not a good day to sign= legally binding documents. During the coming month, we could feel more detached from material concerns and more eager to grow spiritually. Day dreaming could interfere with the work in need of being done. Yet going with the flow helps us find inner peace.

 

Tuesday 2/19: Mercury Sextile Saturn (6:39 PM)

Our thoughts are serious, focused and disciplined. A great day to get through our administrative papers. We seek the company of wiser, sometimes older people. Wonderful for redefining our short and long term goals.

 

Friday 2/22: Mercury Square Jupiter (12:40 PM), Venus Conjunct Pluto (7:49 PM) 

We could overextend ourselves and have exaggerated expectations. Let us be careful of promises we cannot keep or that seem too good to be true. Starting a long distance trip under this transit is ill-advised. A relationship begun today could be particularly passionate, even bordering on the obsessive. Passion and a deep soul link provide a solid basis to an enduring connection that forces us to remove inner blocks to intimacy.

 

Saturday 2/23: Mercury Sextile Pluto (9:15 AM)

Powerful insights into people and situations mark this day. Challenges that had been plaguing us for a while are resolved in a creative manner. Best to lie low. In the face of opposition, communication, compromise and cooperation create benevolent outcomes.

 

Wednesday 2/27: Sun Sextile Mars (6:33 PM)

Challenges are invigorating. A great day for physical activities and to leap into action. The results created are most fulfilling. Our stamina is at an all times’ high. A wonderful day to commit to a dynamic new exercise program. Great also for starting a project requiring leadership abilities, positive energy and impulsive creativity.

 

Wishing you an amazing month of February!

 

In Loving Light.

 

January 2019 astrological forecast

January 2019

 

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Inguz “Renewal”. What a wonderful and apt way of starting a new year! New year, new beginnings. The chance to start over with good resolutions and reinvent ourselves!

 

Two eclipses this month. Eclipses always mark major evolutionary steps beyond which life will never be the same. Their collective influence is determined by the sign they fall in. Their personal influence is based on where (in which house) they occur in our personal birth chart. Their effects can be felt for up to 19 years.

Saturday 1/5, Solar Eclipse in Capricorn (15º25’) at 5:28 PM. This degree is represented in the Sabian Symbols by: “School grounds filled with boys and girls in gymnasium suits”. Our body is the vehicle of our soul. This eclipse urges us to listen to its wisdom. Our physical self is a good measure of where we are at. Its pains and sufferings signal places of imbalance in need of rectification. Healing occurs when we see and feel ourselves in whole(holy)ness. This eclipse is also helping us follow our bliss that we may find our perfect job and there also, become the masters of our own destiny.

Sunday 1/20, Lunar Eclipse in Leo (0:52’) at 9:16 PM. This degree is symbolized by: “Blood rushes to a man’s head as his vital energies are mobilized under the spur of ambition”. Circumstance in our lives may shift, structures may change, an old order may come to an abrupt end. Those dissolving situations are forcing us redefine our priorities and create new dynamics in our lives. As we do, we can dream new dreams that revitalize us. This eclipse can help us either find a work that inspires us, or bring inspiration to our existing position. As healing comes to our heart, our physical self is also supported in returning to divine perfection. Relationships are warmer. We feel more generous. A deep interest in a foreign culture could encourage us to travel to a country that opens our heart further and enriches us spiritually.

 

Uranus turns direct on Sunday January 6 at 28º36’ Aries. Its shadow period remains until April 22nd. The image associated with this degree is: “The music of the Spheres”. In the past few months, we have been asked to free ourselves from conditionings, family and educational influences, so that we may individuate. As we stand in our own power, we are also able to connect to the magic of the universe and tap into higher realms of consciousness.

  • From Tuesday 1/1 at 2:26 PM till Wednesday 1/2 at 0:58 AM: when the Moon enters Sagittarius.

Tuesday 1/1: Sun conjunct Saturn (9:49 PM)

A day of serious thoughts and actions. We may be more cautious and measured in our speech and prefer aloneness to being with others. An excellent day to fulfill our duties and responsibilities. Older, more mature people are likely to acknowledge our practical efforts. We are concerned with long term ambitions and are willing to work hard to achieve them.

 

Thursday 1/3: Mercury Trine Uranus (9:12 PM)

A day to expect the unexpected. Plans may change suddenly. It is best to remain flexible and not make any binding decision. We may be surprised by people dropping out of our lives, while others we haven’t heard from in a long time, re-emerge, enabling us to reassess how much we have evolved in the past years. We are drawn to unusual characters walking to the sound of their own drummer as well as to futuristic ideas. A day to go with the flow and be present to the present.   

 

Friday 1/4: Sun Sextile Neptune (11:58 AM), Mercury enters Capricorn (7:40 PM) till Wednesday 1/23.

During the next 3 weeks, our mind is practical, organized and prone to seriousness of purpose. We are focused on our ambitions and disciplined in our work. Today more specifically, compassion, respect and unconditional love do wonders for our relationships. Artists are inspired. All are drawn to beauty, grace, peace, harmony and balance.

 

Saturday 1/5: Solar Eclipse (5:28 PM) in Capricorn (15º25’)

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.

 

Monday 1/7: Venus enters Sagittarius (3:19 AM) till February 4

During the next month, we feel warmer, more generous and adventurous in love than usual. A love interest from another state or country could enter our life for both our spiritual and emotional enrichment. We may also fall in love with another culture.  

 

Tuesday 1/8: Mercury Square Mars (2:05 AM)

Not a good day to get in a fight or deal with potentially angry or violent people. Tempers could flare up and become quickly out of control. We should also be careful while driving. Red lights or stop signs could be disrespected very easily. Best to channel our energy into a project requiring enthusiasm and physical energy.

 

Friday 1/11: Sun Conjunct Pluto (3:36 AM)

Our leadership abilities and our charisma exert a strong influence on our environment. We may find that some people oppose a passive resistance to our power, but if we remain strong and fair, we can inspire many and get a lot accomplished today.

 

Monday 1/14: Mercury Sextile Neptune (5:14 AM)

Mental confusion, as well as miscommunications could occur today. Not so good for signing legally binding documents nor for dealing with anything requiring attention to details. A day best spent day-dreaming, watching a positive movie or reading an inspiring book. Artists and healers could channel beautiful messages.

 

Friday 1/18: Venus Trine Mars (8:50 AM), Mercury Conjunct Pluto (12:01 PM), Sun Square Uranus (5:30 PM)

The masculine and the feminine are balanced today, leading to harmonious relationships and interesting social encounters. We are able to X-ray situations and people, calling a spade a spade. Important however to stay very present to the moment as unusual circumstances could occur that disrupt our plans and project us in a completely different reality, revealing things that were previously hidden.  

 

Sunday 1/20: Lunar Eclipse (9:16 PM) in Leo (0º52’)

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.

 

Monday 1/21: Mars Square Saturn (3:48 AM)

Stress, heavy unfair responsibilities or an injustice could feel particularly limiting today. We could be rejected for no valid reason. The world could feel like a cold, cruel place. Important to use self-discipline to curb the need to lash back impulsively.

 

Tuesday 1/22: Venus Conjunct Jupiter (4:26 AM)

A good day to throw or attend a party. An act of random kindness could brighten our day. We could get a promotion and feel more generous than usual with those we cherish. A love relationship begun today is spiritually and intellectually enriching. Wonderful for a  long distance journey that confronts us to a new culture.

 

Wednesday 1/23: Mercury Square Uranus (3:13 AM), Mercury enters Aquarius (9:50 PM) till February 11

Unexpected events, unbalanced people, could disrupt our plans today. Harsh words could be spoken impulsively, alienating us from others. During the next 3 weeks, our mind is open to the unusual. Ufology could be attractive, as are inventions connecting science and metaphysics.

 

Friday 1/25: Mars Trine Jupiter (9:53 AM)

A wonderful day to begin a new exercise program and indulge in outdoor activities requiring an adventurous spirit. A new project begun today is fueled with enthusiasm, faith and trust in its positive outcome. Great also for a long-distance journey requiring physical stamina.

 

Tuesday 1/29: Sun Conjunct Mercury (6:52 PM)

A good day for active, direct, positive communications. Let us make those phone calls, write those letters and in general, clear our desk of backlogged work. We speak our mind with clarity. Our interactions with others are pleasant and mutually beneficial.

 

Thursday 1/31: Saturn Sextile Neptune (6:21 AM)

The perfect day to give a practical form to our dreams. Our idealism is grounded in reality. A secure condition could dissolve, allowing us to reinvent it. A very good day for artists who are both esthetically inspired and have business acumen.

 

Wishing you the best of new years!

 

In Loving Light.

December astrological forecast

 

December 2018

 

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Thurisaz, “the gateway”. Life is made of choices. Our destiny unfolds one choice at a time. We are required to discern what will lead us to our highest good from what may hinder our growth. This month, we are faced with important decisions. If we feel confused, it may be useful for each, to create a list of the pros and the cons and assign a number to each bullet point (1: not important, 10: most important) and see for each option whether we are in the plus or the minus, and by how much. This simple exercise will help us reach internal clarity. An important month that brings this year to a conclusion and prepares the next. Let us choose what benefits our highest growth!

Uranus remains retrograde this whole month. Its shadow period lasts until April 23rd 2019. The degrees covered this month (29º09’ - 28º37’ Aries) are symbolized by: “The music of the spheres” and “A duck pond and its brood”. On the road to individuation, if it is important to keep our eyes on the higher realms, to connect to the mysteries of the universe and find our place in the greater scheme of things, it is also essential to remember our family, biological and spiritual. The friends we choose, the like-spirited people, our soul sisters and brothers are the ones who support our evolution, assist us in times of need, and present us the mirror in which we can look at ourselves with honesty. No matter how lonely we may feel, we are never isolated from the rest of humanity. Each life is connected to all and has repercussions. Let us always remember our individual responsibility on the evolution of consciousness of the collective.

Mercury turns direct on December 7 at 27º17’ Scorpio. Its shadow period remains until December 25, 2018. This degree is represented by: “The King of the Fairies approaching his domain”. The first week of December is still marked by a need to investigate esoteric mysteries, the mystical and the secrets of our own spiritual lineage and identity.

This month’s intentional meditation started on Thursday 11/22 when we took out as many blank sheets of paper as you will have intentions and placed them near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they would bask in the light of the Full Moon in Gemini. Once that moment had passed, we gathered our Full Moon charged blank sheets and placed them in a folder.

On Thursday 12/6 on the New Moon in Sagittarius, take out your blank full moon charged papers and write on each a concise, positive intention. Place them on a balcony, in a garden or near a window so that they are out by exactly 11:20 PM. Once that moment has passed, staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams…

Next month’s intentional meditation, begins on Saturday 12/22. Take out as many blank sheets of papers as you will have.  intentions and place them near a window, on a balcony, or in a garden so that they bask in the light of the Full Moon in Cancer at exactly 9:49 AM. Once that moment has passed, gather your Full Moon charged blank sheets and place them in a folder.

Saturday 12/1: Mercury re-enters Scorpio (3:12 AM till December 12)

During the next 11 days, our mind is inquisitive. We seek deep answers to profound questions. We are drawn to the metaphysical, are fascinated by secrets and may wish to investigate the mysteries of life after death and sexuality. Because superficial conversations are not interesting to us, solitude could feel more attractive. Our abilities to concentrate, as well as X-ray situations and people are particularly enhanced.

Sunday 12/2: Venus enters Scorpio (9:02 AM till January 7), Sun Square Mars (4:35 PM)

During the next month, our emotions run deep. We seek loyalty, trustworthiness and integrity in our relationships. Our feelings being very black and white, we tend to avoid lukewarm or wishy-washy people. We need to experience and express passion. Our aesthetic tastes are also more intense than usual. Today, more specifically, could bring some conflicts. Tempers flare up quickly. Direct words are spoken without much prior thought, creating irreparable separations. Potentially aggressive people or situation should be avoided, as they could easily degenerate into violence. Extra caution is advised while driving a motor vehicle or using any sharp object.

 Wednesday 12/5: Sun Square Neptune (2:22 PM)

We could feel quite dreamy today, inefficient and vaguely anxious. We could also be quite influenceable. Best to stay away from negative people as their words could make us more depressed than necessary. A day best used focusing on the positive, listening to uplifting music, watching a feel-good movie or reading an inspiring book.

 Thursday 12/6: Mercury turns direct (1:22 PM)

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph. Today communications could still be a little chaotic. Everything returns to normal tomorrow.

Friday 12/7: Mars Conjunct Neptune (6:12 AM)

Physically, we could feel rather weak today, dreamy and unprone to making any effort in the “real” world. A day best spent resting, relaxing, taking it easy and going with the flow. Good for creative craft work, meditation and aquatic exercise.

Wednesday 12/12: Mercury enters Sagittarius (3:43 PM till January 5)

The next 3 weeks are perfect for long distance traveling, learning a new language, taking an interest in a different culture, furthering our education especially in the areas of the law, religion and/or philosophy. We feel more positive than usual, exert more self-confidence, and in general have more faith and trust in life, in ourselves as well as in others.

Sunday 12/16: Venus Sextile Saturn (6:27 AM), Mars Sextile Pluto (10:53 PM)

A good day to be very clear on a romantic involvement. We are able to look at a relationship with realism, a certain degree of detachment and a deeper understanding of its implications in our life. The perfect time to either end it or lift it to the next level of commitment. Focused artistic work leads to solid results. A good day for intense physical efforts as well as for starting a project requiring passion, power, stamina and courage.

Thursday 12/20: Sun Trine Uranus (8:21 AM)

A day of sudden and unexpected changes. It is important today to go with the flow, be present from moment to moment, and face challenges with creative inventiveness.  Reconnecting with someone from our past could help us appreciate all the changes we have gone through. A stimulating day that could bring us much freedom from the known while encouraging us to manifest our uniqueness.

Friday 12/21: Venus Trine Neptune (9:12 AM), Mercury Conjunct Jupiter (9:37 AM), Sun enters Capricorn (2:23 PM till January 20)

During this coming month we could be much more organized, efficient and hard-working than usual. An excellent time to make short and long-term plans, reassess our goals, as well as be clear on our values and priorities. 

Today, more specifically, a relationship could feel enchanted. But if it seems too good to be true, beware, as it may just be so and once the pink bubble has burst, end in a big disappointment. On the positive side, if we are careful not to let our imagination take over, there could be a soul link and a telepathic connection with another. Our esthetic sense is particularly refined. We want to focus on beauty around us and in each person we meet. This transit is particularly inspiring for artists who are able through their art to pierce the veils between dimensions.

Today, we also feel very generous, enthusiastic and confident. Let us however be careful to not promise more than we can deliver, as our words could exceed our capacity to fulfill them. Let us beware not to fall prey to those who would take advantage of our wishful mental state. Excellent for a long-distance trip which will expose us to distant cultures and expand our understanding of this world. Very good also for learning a new language, furthering our education or taking an interest in philosophy, religion or the law. Our mind is expansive, positive and adventurous.

Monday 12/24: Mercury Square Neptune (4:33 PM)

Confusion could mark this day. Our mind is not good with details and may even be quite impractical. We could feel dreamy and unfocused, more attracted to a world of our imagination than dealing with reality. Not a good day for signing legally binding documents or anything requiring concentration and discipline. We could be more tired and sensitive to noise, negativity, ugliness and darkness, than usual. 

Friday 12/28: Venus Sextile Pluto (1:27 PM)

A new or existing love relationship could make us experience more passion than we have ever known. Compromise, graciousness and compliance for the sake of peace and harmony, ease our social life. Artists could work with more intensity and creativity than usual.

Monday 12/31: Mars enters Aries (6:20 PM till February 14)

Aries natives are favored during the next 6 weeks. All others should also enjoy higher energy, feel more confident and optimistic. A great period to launch a project requiring enthusiasm, courage, positive energy, determination and physical stamina.  

 

Wishing you the happiest of holidays!

 

In Loving Light.

November astrological forecast

RUNE OF THE MONTH: The blank rune! We are entering the unknown, the unforeseeable… But also, at work in our lives, is the sum result (karma) of all our thoughts and actions. Everything is possible this month. We are reminded that we are the ultimate creators of our reality and that whatever we are reaping based on our past choices, that we do not enjoy, can be changed with a transformation of attitude.

September astrological forecast

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Ansuz “Signals, the messenger”. A reminder to be impeccable in our thoughts and words as they create our reality and impact others as well as the world around us. We are also required to pay attention to both the obvious and the subtle messages we receive on a constant basis that validate or invalidate the choices we are making.
