June's astrological forecast

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Ehwaz “Horse”. A month of profound changes. By letting go of too intense an attachment to the mundane, we can feel and express our freedom. If we have wanted to create new things in our lives (move, start a different job, take up a hobby…) now is the time to fully commit to bringing these projects into manifestation. A month of personal empowerment by banking on our talents and acting on our visions!

Jupiter remains retrograde until June 9th. Its shadow period lasts until September 6. The degree it turns direct on (13º13’ Libra) is symbolized by: “In the heat of the noon, a man takes a siesta”. A great reminder of the necessity to appreciate what we have so that, within our present circumstances and without necessarily waiting for a change, we may reach fulfillment. Our dreams materialize by letting go of an excessive attachment to them, and trusting in the process of manifestation with faith and confidence. The more we focus on removing the obstacles to our joy, tolerance, warmth and generosity, the happier we become, thus attracting to ourselves increased wealth, good fortune and positive relationships.

Saturn remains retrograde this whole month in Sagittarius until August 25. Its shadow period remains until December 1. The degrees it travels this month (25º31’-23º25’ Sagittarius) are symbolised in the Sabian Symbols by the following images: “A flag-bearer in a battle”, “A chubby boy on a hobbyhorse” and “A bluebird standing at the door of the house”. We are being asked to face our responsibilities with courage, hard work, persistence and discipline. The way we handle our challenges becomes the light that turns us into way showers. As we resolutely face our anxieties and fears, overcome timidity, fatigue, loneliness and depression, we find within the energy and the power to manifest our dreams.

Neptune turns retrograde on June 16 until November 22nd at 14º13’ Pisces. Its shadow period lasts until March 13, 2018. The degree travelled this month is represented by: “An officer drilling his men in a simulated attack”. More than ever could we be confronted to the fact that nothing is as it seems. It is important that on a personal level, we do not allow ourselves to become deluded. A vague sense of dissatisfaction, lethargic feelings, or negative psychic perceptions could plague us. It may be necessary to dissociate ourselves from the news, television and external projections of reality. Our heightened sensitivity could make us absorb much negativity, which in turn may make us feel both defenceless and in need of protecting ourselves against a potential aggression that may or may never come to manifest in physical reality.

Pluto remains retrograde this whole month and will remains so until September 28. Its shadow period continues until January 19, 2018. The degree travelled this month (18º59’-18º22’ Capricorn) is represented by “A child of about five carrying a huge shopping bag filled with groceries”. A month to bring to the surface our abilities to create sustenance and to manifest our gifts and talents, even if they seem too big for our present circumstances. The more we focus on our power, the more we can bring to fruition even our wildest dreams. No apparent limitation should keep us from exerting our inner truth. By being ourselves, we also nurture others and give them the strength to live their own abundance.

Thursday 6/1: Venus Trine Saturn (8:23 AM)

Boring situations are tackled with charm. Duties are done with love. Others assist us in beautifying our home and organizing our work. Our relationships and our finances become clearer, more grounded and solid.

Saturday 6/3: Venus Conjunct Uranus (0:31 AM), Sun Trine Jupiter (9:12 AM)

We are likely to meet very exciting people today. The charisma we radiate attracts a stimulating social life. In a romantic relationship, we may be required to balance intimacy and freedom. If we are not careful and take situations or others for granted, too much of either could cause sudden and unexpected separations. We however feel positive, confident and self-assured. Our enthusiasm, faith and trust in ourselves and life open many wonderful doors today. Despite the warnings, this could be one of the best days of the year.   

Sunday 6/4: Sun Square Neptune (9:14 AM), Mars enters Cancer (9:16 AM till July 20th)

We could feel a little sensitive, dreamy and tired. A day to avoid dealing with legal papers or anything requiring attention to details. Spiritual work could also be challenging as we could be prone to spiritual imagination. Best to lay low, watch an inspiring movie and rest. During the next 6 weeks, Cancer Sun and Cancer rising natives are favored. A great time for house renovations or engaging in family activities.

Tuesday 6/6: Venus enters Taurus (0:27 AM till July 4th), Mercury enters Gemini (3:15 PM till June 21st)

During the next month, our appreciation for beauty, comfort and sensuality increases. We seek peace, harmony and balance and are drawn to nature and simple pleasures.  A wonderful time to start a flower and vegetable garden and take care of our bodies with wholesome foods, beauty treatments and massages.

Friday 6/9: Jupiter turns direct (7:04 AM), Venus Sextile Mars (8:41 AM)

Regarding Jupiter, kindly refer to the opening paragraph.  Today more specifically is a wonderful day for pleasant social exchanges, balanced connections with the opposite sex and fun artistic ventures. Our warm and relaxed attitude elicits friendliness from others.

Tuesday 6/13: Mercury Trine Jupiter (8:45 AM), Mercury Square Neptune (8:29 PM)

A day when we could be vulnerable to exaggerations of all types. It is essential that we do not get carried away by get rich quick schemes, nor fall prey to deceptive characters. A situation could be vastly misrepresented. People are elusive and make grand promises they cannot possibly keep. If something sounds too good to be true, it most probably is. Important today to listen to our inner voice, while remaining grounded and anchored in common sense.

Thursday 6/15: Sun Opposition Saturn (3:17 AM)

We could feel energetically depleted. A day to face our responsibilities, duties and obligations with as much grace and dignity as possible. Completing backlogged work may prove more tedious than expected, yet needs to be done. We should beware of people using us to their advantage or treating us unfairly. A bit of a depressing day. Best to go to bed early.

Friday 6/16: Neptune turns retrograde (4:10 AM till November 22nd)

Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.

Sunday 6/18: Sun Sextile Uranus (11:46 AM), Mercury Opposition Saturn (12:07 PM)

A day to expect the unexpected. Plans could change without warning. New situations, as well as unusual social encounters are both stimulating and freeing. 

Tuesday 6/20: Venus Sextile Neptune (1:26 AM), Mercury Sextile Uranus (2:30 AM), Summer Solstice/Sun enters Cancer (9:24 PM till July 22nd)

A very enchanted day. Our sensitivity to beauty, peace and balance is particularly enhanced. Our mind is sharp and intuitive, finding answers through sudden flashes of insight. Our mental expression and our heart, are connected to our higher self and the other side of the veil.  During the next four weeks, family matters assume a greater than usual importance. Financial as well as emotional security become very important to us. We want to turn our home into a nurturing nest where we can care and protect our loved ones.

Wednesday 6/21: Mercury enters Cancer (2:58 AM till July 5th), Sun Conjunct Mercury (7:14 AM)

During the next three weeks, we think in a more subjective manner. Our mind is imaginative and sensitive, and our sense of humor, keener. An excellent time to pursue creative writing and develop our drawing talents. Today more specifically, we are encouraged to write the e-mails and make the phone calls that we had been putting off. Communications are direct, positive and productive. 

Saturday 6/24: Venus Trine Pluto (1:57 AM), Mars Square Jupiter (11:07 PM)

Physically, we should beware not to push ourselves beyond our own limits. An excessive confidence in our strength could prove most costly and damaging. Overextending ourselves today is ill advised. Promising more than we can deliver can backfire. We seek passion in our relationships, as well as loyalty and a deep commitment. Love and sexuality feel very blended. We could discover horizons that we never thought even existed.  

Sunday 6/25: Mars Trine Neptune (11:19 PM)

A good day to take off, enjoy some relaxation with inspiring, artistic friends. Our imagination is more active than usual, helping us find creative solutions to complex problems. We could exercise a unique kind of fascination on others which in turn helps us manifest our dreams. Wonderful for entertainers and people involved in visual art forms. Excellent also for the development of our healing abilities.

Tuesday 6/27: Mercury Square Jupiter (11:21 AM), Mercury Trine Neptune (5:23 PM)

Kindly refer to Tuesday 6/13.  

Wednesday 6/28: Mercury Conjunct Mars (12:51 PM)

A great day to engage in physical exercise rather than mental battles. Tongues could be sharp today. Let us think before we talk as impulsive expression could lead to unnecessary fights that we later regret.

Thursday 6/29: Mercury Opposition Pluto (5:34 PM)

Power games and manipulations should be avoided at all costs. Important to meet others half way and do our best to compromise without giving up our integrity. Strong opinions should be kept to ourselves as to not attract unnecessary enmity.   

Wishing you an enchanted month of June!

In Loving Light.

May's astrological forecast

May 2017

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Kenaz “torch”. We are called this month to draw upon our inner light. Having ideas amounts to very little if we do not act with passion, ignite the fire within to manifest them in outer reality. We are light bearers, the flames of the candles that illuminate miles of darkness. We are asked to remember what we know and reminded that knowledge is power.

Mercury turns direct on May 3rd at 24º17’ Aries. Its shadow period remains until May 21st. The Sabian Symbols describe this degree as follows: “A double promise reveals its inner and outer meanings”. Right now, nothing is as it seems. The pace is accelerating. To remain balanced, it is essential that we be aware of the whole picture at all times without falling prey to the ups and downs, shifts and turns, that keep occurring at a furious rhythm. As we stay grounded in our integrity, and listen to our inner voice, truth unfolds allowing us to discern with clarity what-is from what-is-not.

Jupiter remains retrograde this whole month until June 9th. Its shadow period lasts until September 6. The 2 degrees (15º24’-13º20’ Libra) traveled this month are symbolized by “After a storm, a boat landing stands in need of reconstruction”, “In the heat of the noon, a man takes a siesta”. Despite the pressure to constantly move forward, it is important that we take a step back and allow ourselves time to replenish, regenerate and honor our physical needs. Sleeping enough, drinking plenty of pure water, enjoying time alone, paying attention to our dreams are all necessary for us to remain stable in the eye of the storm. What do we truly believe in? What ideals do we pursue? What visions do we have? How deeply do we honor our integrity?

Saturn remains retrograde this whole month in Sagittarius until August 25. Its shadow period remains until December 1. The degrees it travels this month (27º17-25º35’ Sagittarius) are symbolized in the Sabian Symbols by the following images: “An old bridge over a beautiful stream in constant use”, “The sculptor’s vision is taking form”, “A flag-bearer in a battle”. We are being tested in our maturity, our resolve no matter what obstacles we encounter, our persistence despite challenges, our inner strength and our personal authority. Difficulties force us to restructure our understanding of reality by finding new solutions to the problems at hand. We are very much asked to review our personal relationships, tap into our inner talents and resources, as well as redefine our goals.

Pluto remains retrograde this whole month and will remains so until September 28. Its shadow period continues until January 19, 2018. The degree traveled this month (19º22-19º00 Capricorn) is represented by “A hidden choir singing during a religious service”. A time to reflect on the inner transformations induced by the rapidly changing outer circumstances. Only the consciousness that all is in divine order can help us make sense of what seems so chaotic right now. We live in a benevolent universe. We need to remember that even the situations that do not develop as we had hoped for, necessarily lead to a higher good that would have been blocked had our limited/limiting visions been fulfilled. When we understand this, we can start to relax and really look forward to the surprises in store for us, allowing much magic to pour into our world.

Wednesday 5/3: Mercury turns direct (9:33 AM), Sun Sextile Neptune (5:51 PM)

Regarding Mercury turning direct, kindly refer to the opening paragraph. Today, we could still experience some lost keys, missed flights and misunderstandings in general. Tomorrow, communications return to normal. A good day to favor quiet meditation, engage in artistic activities and work with our dreams.

Tuesday 5/9: Sun Trine Pluto (11:21 AM), Mercury Conjunct Uranus (10:19 PM)

A day to stand in our power with sensitivity and intelligence. Ego struggles, manipulations or ultimatums are ill-advised. Through our ability to see deeply into people and situations, we create empowering and enriching circumstances for all.  Unusual, independent people are attractive. New, exciting friendships are likely to develop today, opening unexpected doors which free our horizons.

Thursday 5/11: Mars Square Neptune (10:53 AM), Mercury Trine Saturn (1:15 PM)

Actions may be elusive. Situations may unravel very differently than expected. Despite our efforts to be structured, we could feel vaguely uncomfortable and strangely restless or anxious. Stimulants are ill advised, as they could have stronger effects than usual. A day to focus on backlogged work, commit to our goals and engage in serious and mature conversations with responsible people.

Friday 5/12: Mars Trine Jupiter (3:19 AM)

A day of optimistic endeavors. Wonderful for a lively philosophical discussion, growing financially, planning, or starting, a trip to a distant country, or exploring a different culture. A day where we stand our ground with strength and elegance.

Monday 5/15: Mercury enters Taurus (9:07 PM till June 6th)

During the next 3 weeks, our thinking and communications are pragmatic. We could seek a less stressful life, digest information, be more grounded and need to spend more time in nature. We are likely to be more focused on our physical wellbeing, interested in making money fructify and inspired by art and beauty in general. A time to relax, exercise patience, show endurance and be more practical in creating solid foundations for our dreams to manifest. A great period to improve our home, move at a more leisurely pace and take care of our body.

Thursday 5/18: Saturn Trine Uranus (11:19 PM)

Plans change, unexpected circumstances occur, people around us become more independent. We find new solutions to old problems, are innovative and transition from the old to the new in a more balanced and harmonious way.

Friday 5/19: Venus Opposition Jupiter (7:12 AM)

A wonderful day for formalities and expanding our social life. Kindness, generosity, elegance and charm open many beneficial doors. Let us be careful not to overdo anything, nor fall prey to any kind of extravagance. A good day financially also, as long as we remain honest and serene. Overspending is ill advised, so is putting on a show out of alignment with how we really feel. Today, our integrity, graciousness and hospitability are greatly rewarded.

Saturday 5/20: The Sun enters Gemini (1:31 PM till June 20th)

These coming four weeks are great for short travels, learning, teaching, reading and studying.  Our curiosity is at an all times’ high. We feel more sociable than usual. Friendships are as enriching as they are varied.

Thursday 5/25: Venus Square Pluto (9:19 AM)

A day to lie low and possibly go along with other people’s perceptions. Obstacles may require that we keep our opinions to ourselves. We could feel unappreciated by others who truly cannot see us until we make the effort of relating to them at their level. Manipulation, lack of cooperation, power struggles could mark this day which is testing our inner strength and our capacity to remain balanced no matter what external challenges are confronting us to.  

Sunday 5/28: Mercury Sextile Neptune (0:04 AM), Mars Opposition Saturn (11:54 PM)

Our need to move forward could be blocked by circumstances, requiring of us to find inner reservoirs of patience and wisdom. Not such a good day for signing legally binding documents, but excellent for creative work. We could feel particularly guided and inspired.

 Tuesday 5/30: Mars Sextile Uranus (7:39 PM)

A day to avoid driving or manipulating sharp objects. Reactions could be impulsive and aggressive, only to be regretted later. Best to change our daily routine around, and come up with innovative ideas in answer to the challenges at hand.  

Wednesday 5/31: Mercury Trine Pluto (5:00 AM)

Great insights today. Our perceptions are penetrating people and situations, allowing us to see their truth. A wonderful day to study metaphysical or scientific topics. We read between the lines and with prophetic knowingness discover what was not revealed. Profound answers to our questions elevate us to a new consciousness of our reality.

Wishing you an inspiring month of May!

 In Loving Light.

April's astrological forecast

April 2017

 

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Sowilo, the Sun. A month to make good use of our creativity, stand in our inner light and radiate our warmth. We should follow our bliss, take good care of our bodies and stand tall in our power with joy and magic.

Mercury turns retrograde on April 9 until May 3rd (4º47’ Taurus-24º17’ Aries). Its shadow period remains until May 21st. Our values around money, abundance, as well as comfort could shift dramatically during this period. We may develop a new relationship to our physical body and wish to spend more time gardening and taking care of Mother Earth. We  are likely to discover new ways of being practical and find within us reservoirs of resourcefulness that we had never suspected. We could reconnect with projects we had abandoned and be dynamically involved in a whole revamping of our lives through a change of priorities. New ideas lead to a complete renewal of our belief system.

 Venus remains retrograde until April 15th. Its shadow period continues until May 18. A time to reevaluate all our relationships. People reveal their true colors. We could have to reexamine the way we express love and affection, whom we are attracted to and why, and the general health of a romantic relationship. People from our past may reemerge, giving us a chance to complete relationships that maybe had not ended well, or clear misunderstandings. Finances also come to the forefront. How much do we value money? How do we make money? Do we use money constructively or do we squander our material resources in aimless pursuits? Do we apply the rule of saving 10% of our earnings, and giving 10% to charity, thus leaving space for more abundance to come our way? A moneymaking opportunity could be re-actualized. Money owed could return to us. Our relationship to beauty is also likely to come into focus. Do we love ourselves enough to embrace our physical appearance as it is, or are we plagued by inner insecurities enticing us to feel we should change the way we look? A great time for small improvements, but drastic makeovers are not advised as we might come later on to regret unfortunate results.

 Jupiter remains retrograde this whole month until June 9th. Its shadow period lasts until September 6. The 5 degrees (19º08’-15º34’ Libra) traveled this month are symbolized by “A Jewish rabbi performing his duties”, “A gang of robbers in hiding”, “two men placed under arrest”, “A retired sea captain watches ships entering and leaving the harbor” and “After a storm, a boat landing stands in need of reconstruction”. We are being tested in our faith, our values and our integrity. If we have given in to greed, dishonesty, have been scattered or had unrealistic goals, our path could become heavy with losses and disappointments. But if we have stood close to our principles with honesty and generosity, great rewards come with this transit. Our dreams will come true. We can experience happiness, receive wonderful gifts and welcome a flow of abundance.

Saturn turns retrograde on April 5 at 27º47’ Sagittarius until August 25 (21º11’ Sagittarius). Its shadow period remains until December 1. The degree it travels this month is symbolized in the Sabian Symbols by the following image: “An old bridge over a beautiful stream in constant use”. A time to face our responsibilities and be self-sufficient while going with the flow. Delays, frustrations and obstacles help us develop patience, wisdom and strength.

Pluto turns retrograde on April 19 at 19º23’ Capricorn and will remains so until September 28 (16º51’ Capricorn). Its shadow period will continue until January 19, 2018. The degree it turns retrograde on this month is represented by “A hidden choir singing during a religious service”. A time to let go of outmoded structures, and simplify our lives so that we may reach the core of our being. This gives us a chance to truly become channels for our own higher selves to flow through us, divinely guiding our actions and emotions.

Wednesday 4/5: Mars Trine Pluto (8:57 PM), Saturn turns retrograde (10:06 PM)

Regarding Saturn retrograde, kindly refer to the opening paragraph. Today, more specifically, we act with courage, will power and a sense of urgency. Considering the needs of others is essential to make the constructive changes we need to make today. A great day to start a beneficial exercise program that we shall see to completion.

Friday 4/7: Sun Opposition Jupiter (2:39 PM)

A day to have faith in ourselves. Excellent for attending an elegant venue with grace and dignity. It may be important today to honor our achievements and to not overextend ourselves or spend more money than necessary. We are rewarded for standing in our integrity.

Saturday 4/8: Venus Square Saturn (1:28 PM), Sun Square Pluto (5:45 PM)

Relationships could be strained today. Issues that were lurking under the surface could become so frustrating that we no longer can avoid facing the reality in our partnerships. We could feel more lonely than usual. Cooperation comes with difficulties. Power struggles and breaks in communication create obstacles. A day to stay low and focus on finding inner balance.

Sunday 4/9: Mercury turns retrograde (4:15 PM)

Regarding Mercury retrograde, kindly refer to the opening paragraph.

Thursday 4/13: Sun Conjunct Uranus (10:29 PM)

Plans get disrupted, unexpected events open new opportunities, unusual ideas come from strange places and we meet people very much walking to the sound of their own drummer.  A renewed sense of freedom and excitement permeates the air.

Sunday 4/15: Venus goes direct (3:17 AM)

After a period of reassessment (since March 4), we are clearer on our values and relationships as well as our finances reach a new, more stable position.

Sunday 4/16: Venus Sextile Mars (6:24 PM)

A great balance of the masculine and the feminine can be achieved today. Wonderful for harmonious relationships with the opposite sex where mutual respect and understanding prevail. Pleasant social contacts mark this day dominated by serenity.

Monday 4/17: Sun Trine Saturn (5:43 AM)

A day to focus on our ambitions, concentrate on the work that needs to be completed and exert seriousness, groundedness and maturity in all our interactions. Our authority inspires the respect of others. Our boundaries are clear and our path, solid.

Wednesday 4/19: Sun enters Taurus (2:27 PM till May 20th), Sun Conjunct Mercury (10:54 PM)

During the next month, we are more pragmatic, grounded, attracted to nature, as well as drawn to sensuality and comfort. Excellent for spending time in nature, taking care of our physical bodies and if we weren’t already, going back to eating wholesome foods. We might need also to develop a healthier relationship with our finances and generate the feeling of abundance. Today, more specifically, is great for communications, gathering with friends, having positive, dynamic conversations, learning and travelling.

 Thursday 4/20: Pluto turns retrograde (5:45 AM), Mercury enters Aries (10:37 AM till May 15th)

Regarding Pluto retrograde, kindly refer to the opening paragraph. During the next 3 weeks, our communications are direct, forceful and dynamic. We mean what we say and impulsively express ourselves with courage. We may lack patience for slower individuals and may not have much staying power, but are attracted to enthusiastic new ideas. Wonderful for starting a new project requiring physical drive and self-confidence.

Friday 4/21: Mars enters Gemini (3:32 AM till June 4th), Venus Square Saturn (4:10 AM)

During the next month and a half, Geminis and Gemini rising individuals are favored. Excellent for athletic and intellectual activities. We could however run the risk of becoming so curious about so many things, that we become somewhat scattered. Excellent for traveling and exploring a culture radically different from ours. Great also to start learning a new language. Today, more specifically, we could feel the weight of loneliness and encounter difficulties in enlisting other people’s help. If in a relationship, we need to be realistic about it and come to an understanding of what we have and what we don’t have, if we can change what we don’t have or if we can live with what we cannot transform.

Monday 4/24: Mercury Trine Saturn (1:15 AM)

A day to review our short and long term goals, be serious, focused and grounded. Excellent for clearing our desk of backlogged work. Conversations are deep and meaningful. We are attracted to more mature individuals whose success we admire and who can help us fulfill our own ambitions.  

Friday 4/28: Venus enters Aries (6:13 AM till June 6), Mercury Conjunct Uranus (7:50 AM)

During the next 5 weeks, either we love something/someone straight away or it will never happen. We could fall in love impulsively, with great joy, only to lose interest shortly after. We wear our heart on our sleeve and return to childlike innocence and enthusiasm. Today, more specifically, we should expect the unexpected. Plans may suddenly change. Rerouting could occur on a moment’s notice. Cherished concepts are likely to be challenged by new ideas. We could separate from acquaintances who seem lacking in dynamism and get attracted to exciting new friends who bring much freedom and innovation to our paths.

Wishing you an enchanted month of April!

 In Loving Light.

March Forecast

March 2017

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Kano “inner peace”. A month to not fall prey to the ups and downs of external reality. Order, balance and unity give birth to a calm state of mind. As we go deep within to find our personal sanctuary of tranquility, we free ourselves from inner and outer violence, wars and conflicts. Only in this place of absolute serenity, can we see with clarity all that is not, and peacefully let it go with a breath of kindness. 

Venus turns retrograde on March 4 between 13º09’ and 1º18’ Aries until April 15th. Its shadow period remains until May 18. A time to reevaluate all our relationships. People reveal their true colours. We could have to reexamine the way we express love and affection, whom we are attracted to and why, and the general health of a romantic relationship. People from our past may reemerge, giving us a chance to complete relationships that maybe had not ended well, or clear misunderstandings. Finances also come to the forefront. How much do we value money. How do we make money? Do we use money constructively or do we squander our material resources in aimless pursuits? Do we apply the rule of saving 10% of our earnings, and giving 10% to charity, thus leaving space for more abundance to come our way? A moneymaking opportunity could be re-actualised. Money owed could return to us. Our relationship to beauty is also likely to come into focus. Do we love ourselves enough to embrace our physical appearance as it is, or are we plagued by inner insecurities enticing us to feel we should change the way we look? A great time for small improvements, but drastic makeovers are not advised as we might come later on to regret unfortunate results.

 Jupiter remains retrograde this whole month until June 9th. Its shadow period lasts until September 6. The 4 degrees (22º18’-19º12’ Libra) traveled this month are symbolized by “Chanticleer’s voice heralds sunrise”, “A child giving birds a drink at a fountain”, “A Sunday crowd enjoying the beach” and “A Rabbi performing his duties”. As lack of honesty is revealed, integrity is rewarded. Unexpected luck and beneficial opportunities involving others come as a result of past positive actions. A wonderful time of growth and happiness that enables us to further our education, enhance our spiritual understanding and make significant advances in living our dreams. A journey to a distant country we visited in the past or always longed to explore, could resurface, opening new realms of experience that help us grow in wisdom.

Wednesday 3/1: Sun Conjunct Neptune (6:45 PM)

We could feel quite spaced out today. Confusion could arise in material matters. Not a good day for signing legal papers or doing any work requiring focused attention to details. Excellent however for meditation, spiritual and/or artistic inspiration.  A day best spent in peace and silence.

Thursday 3/2: Jupiter Opposition Uranus (5:19 PM)

An important day to complete an outmoded chapter of our lives and move into a new dimension of our personal evolution. The final outcome of this change may however not unfold quite as we had envisioned. Stress induced precipitation is ill advised at this time. Even though friendships developed today could be short-lived and somewhat disruptive, the people we encounter are likely to be intense and unusual, opening exciting horizons into our lives.

Saturday 3/4: Venus turns retrograde (1:08 AM until April 15th), Mercury Conjunct Neptune (3:10 AM)

During the next 3 weeks, a long forgotten love interest could reemerge. We could have second thoughts with regard to an existing romantic relationship. New circumstances may test our understanding of love and relationships. Not a good day for signing legal papers or dealing with documents requiring great attention to details, as we could feel somewhat unfocused. On the other hand, this transit brings valuable inspiration for meditation, spiritual healing and artistic work.

Sunday 3/5: Mars Trine Saturn (12:45 PM)

We are able to handle our duties and obligations today with practical efficiency, accepting gracefully the limitations that may be imposed upon us. We are not afraid of putting in long hours. We remain very focused on the tasks at hand and get things done efficiently.

Monday 3/6: Sun Conjunct Mercury (4:29 PM)

Excellent for trading, selling, completing backlogged work, making phone calls or answering e-mails. Today, we are quick witted and efficient in the pursuit of our objectives. A new experience or encounter, expands our horizons in very beneficial ways.

Tuesday 3/7: Mercury Sextile Pluto (9:23 PM)

Manipulation, power games or ultimatums are ill advised. A day to keep strong opinions to ourselves, lie low and go with the flow and remember that positive results are best obtained through cooperation and communication.

Thursday 3/9: Sun Sextile Pluto (0:29 AM), Mars enters Taurus (4:34 PM until April 21)

During the next 6 weeks, our actions are practical, thorough, grounded, and lead to enduring results. Taurus natives are favored. Today, more specifically, issues should not be forced. Cooperation leads to faster, more effective results.

Monday 3/13: Mercury enters Aries (2:08 PM) till 3/30

During the next 17 days, our minds are sharp, innovative, daring and dynamic. We come up quickly with smart solutions to the challenges at hand.  

Friday 3/17: Sun Square Saturn (2:47 PM)

Our authority may be challenged, our workload may become more significant, and we could run into depressing difficulties. Even if concentration, focus, discipline and hard work may go unnoticed today, they pave the way to ultimate success. The more quiet, dignified and efficient we are, the more solidity we bring to our position in society.

Saturday 3/18: Mercury Conjunct Venus (5:26 AM)

A day of pleasant communications with others. Excellent for gathering with friends or attending an elegant social event. Even difficult things are expressed nicely and serenely.

 Monday 3/20: Sun enters Aries (3:29 AM, Vernal Equinox until April 20th)

This next month is great for starting a new exercise program, displaying an adventurous spirit and beginning a project requiring initiative, stamina and dynamic leadership abilities.

Thursday 3/23: Mercury Square Pluto (5:42 PM)

Deep, strategic thinking done with integrity is favored today. Forcing our way through obstacles is likely to backfire. Our ideas need to be expressed clearly, truthfully, without any hint of manipulation. Oppositions from others need to be dealt quietly and with dignity.

Friday 3/24: Mercury Opposition Jupiter (5:46 AM)

A day to be careful of someone whose propositions seem too good to be true, as they might just be so. In turn, we should not promise more than we can deliver. A legal or financial issue could prove more complicated and costly than initially expected. Not so favourable for a long distance trip.

Saturday 3/25: Sun Conjunct Venus (3:16 AM)

Beauty and peace are particularly attractive. A day to make our surroundings as pleasant as possible. We present ourselves and our ideas with poise and elegance, enabling us to effortlessly enlist the support of people who can help us further our goals.

Sunday 3/26: Mercury Conjunct Uranus (8:05 AM)

A day to expect the unexpected. A short trip could place us in unfamiliar circumstances. A new person met today could prove to have both a disruptive and stimulating influence. Stress could disturb our ability to rest. Impulsive communications could bring new ideas but could also alienate us from people in our familiar surroundings. We should be extra careful when driving. Answers come to us in sudden flashes of insight and inspiration.

Monday 3/27: Mars Sextile Neptune (9:46 AM)

Dissatisfaction with our present circumstances could stimulate our creativity and imagination to new heights, leading us to exciting opportunities. If we remain attentive not to fall prey to impractical endeavours or build unreal castles in the sky, we could attract interesting experiences. Also not have them fade into nothingness, great ideas should be backed with hard work.

Wednesday 3/29: Mercury Trine Saturn (11:16 AM)

A perfect day for clearing our desk of backlogged work, being focused, efficient, and through hard work furthering our ambitions. Excellent also for quiet study, carefully planning our future and being very structured and organised. Our authority gets established as we express our ideas with seriousness and solidity.

Thursday 3/30: Jupiter Square Pluto (11:41 AM)

Events could affect our serenity and challenge our confidence. Compromising while honoring our own truth is favored. Excellent for studies that both expand and deepen our understanding of the inner workings of the world.

Friday 3/31: Mercury enters Taurus (10:31 AM) till April 20

During the next 3 weeks, our mind is thorough. We need to digest information received and use it in practical ways. Our connection to nature is enhanced. We are interested in situations and people bringing love, sensuality and comfort to our lives.

Wishing you a wonderful month of March!

 In Loving Light, Michelle

February Forecast

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Dagaz “purpose”. A month to be clear on the reason for our incarnation and what we need to do from moment to moment to keep fulfilling our destiny while giving deep meaning to our lives. Visions allow us to move forward. Not only knowing why we are here, but accomplishing the reason we came to this beautiful planet, keeps supporting our growth. It is when we are actively present to the present that we generate the passion that makes our journey on earth exciting and fun. 

January 2017 forecast

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Perth “intimacy”. There can be no intimacy without absolute honesty, first with ourselves and then with the ones we cherish. Mutual trust is a powerful founding block to sharing ourselves completely with another, with an open heart as well as loving attention and respect. Without intimacy, no love is complete nor fulfilling. It is only when we have the courage to truly give ourselves to our partner without holding anything of ourselves back, that the depth of our emotions can truly be experienced.

 

'New' Predictions for 2017!

A 10 year (2+0+1+7). In numerology this is the number of rise or fall depending on the choices of the individual. More than ever is it essential that we stand in honor, integrity and power. Where our thoughts go, so does our reality. The wheel of fortune will be turning and each will reap the rewards of his/her work, or have to face the consequences of not having taken conscious responsibility for his/her inner growth. No freebees this year. New beginnings as well as amazing synchronicities and miracles await those who have truly walked their talk and are in real alignment with the spiritual laws of the universe.

November's forecast

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Beorc, birth. This month marks a new beginning, new growth. A relationship could start or start all over. A project could be launched. An idea could be given birth to. A month of a wonderful new life emerging from the rubbles of what had to be dissolved, so that new concepts may bloom.

October's Forecast

RUNE OF THE MONTH: Nauthiz, “necessity”. The need for consciousness is stressed this month. In these changing times, there is an urgent need for efforts and persistence. Faced with drama, conflicts and constraints, we are required to become stronger, more stable, more balanced and deeper. Tapping into our magic to create a different reality for ourselves by focusing on what we really want, helps us overcome distress.
