Forecast Jul 5-11, 2021: On The Edge

This week’s edgy tone is set from the start. But some refreshment will arrive on Friday night, courtesy of the new Cancer Moon, and more will come on Sunday when Mercury moves into Cancer. Until then, we’re in for a contentious ride. Monday’s aspects tell the tale. The Sun will align with erratic Uranus, a busy-body Gemini Moon will pick a fight with Jupiter, in the sign that just wants everyone to get along or to at least mellow out, Pisces, and an explosive fixed sign t-square will draft diplomatic Venus into combat. The battles will continue into Tuesday when Mercury’s square to Neptune will pick up where the Gemini Moon and Jupiter left off and a Venus Saturn opposition will add fire and air combustion to fixed sign warfare. Venus in Leo loves to live lavishly and Saturn in cool-headed Aquarius sets limits. Finding common ground will prove difficult. Things improve somewhat on Wednesday as Mercury exits the shadow of last month’s retrograde. But before shifting into watery Cancer, an excitable Gemini Moon will challenge none other than Pluto, via a confusing quincunx. Gemini’s ruler, mischievous Mercury, will double down on the bewilderment on Thursday, when it forms its quincunx to Pluto. Meanwhile, on the fixed sign front, the Venus square to volatile Uranus will finally be exact. In this iteration of Tuesday’s confrontation with Saturn, money-minded Venus is having it out with Uranus in the sign of income, Taurus. Bad financial news, and likely on a global scale, is bound to make headlines as this fixed sign t-square continues agitating disruptive Uranus and no-nonsense Saturn. In the near term, the Moon will enter Leo on Saturday, and further out, a late Leo degree Mars will oppose Jupiter on July 29th, two days after Mercury moves into the fixed fire sign. In short, the friction being furthered this week is not about to let up anytime soon. That said, some relief is in store.


Cancer is the sign of home, family and emotional security, and on Friday night the new Cancer Moon will appear. The days leading up to it signal a time for housekeeping. Whether this is a literal deep clean (ceiling fan blades and refrigerator tops included), the discarding of old or worn out items or the cleaning up of strained familial relations, a celestial effort to make way for the new is at hand. Cancer’s crab is a curious creature. Instinctively it craves emotional tranquility, and paradoxically its cardinal character compels movement and change. Mental Mercury might solve this cosmic conundrum while it inhabits the sign from Sunday through July 27th. Its venture through these intuitive waters will find supportive insights coming from Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces and July 18th’s Scorpio Moon. If we can pull back and tune into them, we might determine which of our current struggles are failing to provide lasting emotional satisfaction and which are indeed worth fighting for.

Forecast Jun 21-Jul 4, 2021: Showdowns Showing Up

If you’ve ever considered unplugging all of your devices, retreating to some secluded corner of the world and returning only when the coast is clear, then the next few weeks are an ideal time to set those plans into motion. A combination of outer planet quincunx placements, inner planet conflicts with Pluto and heightened fixed sign friction is inbound. Astrology’s quincunx is not one of its harsh angles per se. Planets are simply 150 degrees apart, which places them in signs with varying elements and modalities. By contrast, when the planets find themselves in astrology’s other familiar angles, they share a common trait. For instance, when conjunct or in a trine, planets share the same element. In a square, they share modality and in opposition, they share modality and polarization, positive or negative. But in the quincunx, there is no common ground. For example, on June 28th Venus, in the fixed fire sign of Leo, will be exactly 150 degrees away from Jupiter, in the mutable water sign of Pisces. August Leo and flexible Pisces express themselves in markedly different ways. Over the next two months, as Mars, Venus, and later Mercury and the Sun travel through Leo, they will face Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn. Similarly, the Sun and Mercury in Cancer will undergo uncomfortable encounters with Saturn in Aquarius. Again the planets aren’t so much squabbling with one another, so much as they are failing to understand one another. This utter lack of comprehension often insures an equal lack of agreement. Communication will be further jumbled as we emerge from the shadow of Mercury’s retrograde.Add some of that characteristic Cancer indirectness, and absolute clarity may prove highly elusive.


But as the Sun, Moon and Mercury venture through the cardinal water sign, they will be all be confronted by Pluto, the planet that has no problem laying issues bare. Pluto will oppose the Cancer Moon on July 10th, the Sun on the 17th and Mercury on the 25th. If we are willing to see revelations as opportunities to heal the old wounds that Cancer otherwise loves to cling to, then Pluto’s transformational medicine can be put to good use. From integrative Pisces, Jupiter will trine Mercury on July 12th and Neptune will trine the Sun on the 15th, assisting intentions to relinquish past grievances. Whatever Pluto, Jupiter and Neptune cannot pry from Cancer claws, a massive fixed sign t-square is sure to jar loose. From Leo, Mars will oppose Saturn on July 1st and square Uranus on the 3rd, under a Taurus Moon. Fixed signs possess their own form of reluctance. Yet under the pressure of this formidable t-square, something or someone will have to give. This cosmic collision will occur over the “holiday” weekend in the US, so choose your company wisely. But should showdowns show up, be prepared to examine and heal their triggers.

Forecast Jun 14-20, 2021: Come In Like A Lion

That old saying about coming in like a lion and going out like a lamb might be altered to “going out like a dolphin” this week. It begins with a ferocious fixed sign t-square and ends with a rejuvenating water trine. Leading the way, Monday’s Leo Moon will be superimposed onto the year’s second, and most intense, Saturn Uranus square. The strenuous aspects created by this Mars-infused t-square will impact fixed sign folks the most. But there will be plenty of frustration to go around. Saturn is the planet of rules, authority and limitations, Uranus is the cosmic rule breaker and proud Leo is accustomed to running the show. What could possibly go wrong? In determining when to buck convention and when to conform to it, Leo’s role will be pivotal. Do we go with regal majesty and magnanimity or the petty tyrant’s drama and bossiness? Choosing carefully from the week’s outset may make all of the difference. As disruptive Uranus threatens to overthrow Saturnian order, accessing Leo’s warmth, creativity and playfulness will benefit the entire kingdom. For example, delivering that catchall punchline, “Mercury is retrograde” with good-natured theatrics and leonine flare might just provide enough comic relief get bellies laughing.


The Moon’s move into reasonable Virgo on Tuesday night would ordinarily signal an easing of tensions. But due to the presence of five other planets and the lunar nodes in fellow mutable signs, even mild-mannered Virgo is in for a rough go of it. The midweek challenges include oppositions from Jupiter and Neptune and squares from the late degree Gemini Sun and Mercury. Whether from fixed or mutable signs, in one way or another, the planets are forcing key decisions to the fore. Just in time for critical decision-making, on Friday morning the Moon will move into judicious, diplomatic and wildly indecisive Libra. Though getting trapped in the sign’s endless weighing of those infamous scales is a strong possibility, trines from the Sun, Mercury and Saturn, in sharp-minded air signs, will offer some constructive clarity.


Real relief will arrive on Sunday, when the Moon will slip into Scorpio, Jupiter will relax into retrograde gear, in the very early degrees of gentle Pisces, and the Sun will leave the buzzing of talkative and techy Gemini for soothing Cancer. This is the celestial step into a cool, refreshing oasis that we’ve been thirsting for all week long. And just around the corner, Venus is waiting to trine Neptune next Monday, followed by Mercury stationing direct on Tuesday. Translation, the end of this Mercury retrograde is in sight. Sometimes, similar to making holiday plans, just knowing that a break in the action is on the way is its own elixir. Before we get there, we’ll have to power through the oncoming turbulence. Binge-watching “healing with dolphins” and “ultimate spa vacation” videos isn’t a bad place to start. In fact, it may prove downright therapeutic.

Forecast Jun 7-13, 2021: Show And Tell

The Moon’s connection with disruptive yet illuminating Uranus first thing on Monday is an apt start to a week that will feature the year’s first solar eclipse, a Sun Mercury conjunction, Mars’ ingress into Leo and a Sun Neptune square. And this watershed week is only the prelude to next Monday’s Saturn Uranus square. The planets appear to be quite intent on exposing the truth, and Uranus, the global purveyor of shock and awe, is leading the charge. Giving us a preview of next week’s major square, in the wee hours of Monday morning, the waning Taurus Moon will conjoin Uranus before squaring Saturn. Tuesday’s lunar connections to Neptune, Pluto and Mars will be favorably aspected. But in the wake of Monday’s action, links to Mars and Pluto may not be as smooth as steady Taurus would like. A retrograde Pluto, after all, is definitely in on the conspiracy to get to the bottom of things. With all three outer planets activated, stories about the origins of the pandemic or alleged voter fraud in the 2020 U.S. presidential election are heading for the spotlight. Informative Gemini will be itching to get in on the media frenzy, and the Moon will roll into the sign of communication midday on Tuesday. There it will begin preparations for Thursday’s rendezvous with the Gemini Sun, at a haughty 19:47. The chatty Twins are probably astrology’s worst secret keepers. They can’t help themselves; their cosmic imperative is to share the 411. Eclipses are also prone to shed light onto matters, and Mercury and Neptune will be intimately involved with this one. Digging up the dirt, retrograde Mercury is on a mission that will see it conjoin the Moon and Sun on Thursday, and Sunday’s Sun Neptune square will be well on its way to full magnitude during the eclipse. Things can get murky whenever cryptic Neptune is involved. But the nonstop volleys coming from the Gemini Sun, Moon and Mercury should solve more than few mysteries. The tales that the Gemini trio unearth will inevitably get tongues wagging and airwaves buzzing. If that isn’t enough drama for one week, Mars will enter Leo on Friday.


Mars and Leo understand, and greatly admire, one another. The fire of lavish Leo is familiar to the ruler of explosive Aries, and Leo positively adores martian frankness, ambition and drive. Their forces will reach peak ferocity from July 1st-3rd, when Mars will oppose Saturn under an Aries Moon and square Uranus under a Taurus Moon. Feisty Mars hasn’t been able to get a light since January 6th, when he had to leave home for Taurus. The fire and fixity of Leo will reignite old flames and further the repercussions of 2021’s Saturn Uranus squares. The second of those hallmark squares is set for next Monday. True to form, Mars isn’t waiting around to rush headlong into the action.

Forecast May 31-Jun 6, 2021: Ignorance Is Strength

The week’s sweet spot will arrive on Thursday afternoon, when the Sun will trine Saturn and Venus will trine Jupiter. Its sour patch will fall on Saturday, when a Mars Pluto opposition will be squared by a blockbusting Aries Moon, in the wake of a Mercury Neptune square. Because Pluto is the outermost planet, the tension leading up to Saturday’s flashpoint will be building throughout the week. That said, the week is ultimately offering an opportunity to face the truth, starting under Monday’s whip-smart Aquarius Moon. Fact-finding, especially when it concerns previously hidden information, and consensus building among reasonable people are favored when the Moon trines retrograding Mercury and Venus in the late degrees of Gemini. The Disinfo Wars ensue in earnest on Tuesday, as soon as the Moon moves into Pisces. In its highest expression, Pisces is a sincere and soulful unifier. In its lowest, it is either genuinely confused or the manipulative and deliberately deceptive “victim”. At its best, journalistic Gemini is objective and rational. The Dark Twin however, can be a duplicitous backstabber, keen to peddle the most salacious gossip and self-serving fake news. Add the presence of amplifiers Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces to this mess, and the waters will remain muddy until midday on Thursday. Look for reliable news once the Moon moves into decisive Aries and the Gemini Sun trines discerning Saturn. During Wednesday’s Pisces Gemini befuddlement, Venus will slip into Cancer. From the soothing water sign, she will trine Jupiter on Thursday afternoon. This aspect brings a measure of calm to the equation, before the Aries Moon starts marshaling support from the Sun, Mercury and Saturn, in preparation for Saturday’s showdowns.

The week’s battle royale for narrative dominance is set for Saturday. That’s when a Mercury Neptune square will immediately be followed by the Moon/Mars/Pluto t-square. Mars is in Cancer, the home sign of the United States, and since early April, Pluto been crossing the exact degree and minute it was at on April 19, 1775, 26 Cap 41. This t-square will occur within minutes of that historic demarcation point, and it looks likely to break all juggernauts wide open. In 2021, the emboldened Aries Moon, ever-ready Mars and ruthlessly honest Pluto are conspiring to irrevocably interrupt all trips down that infamous river of De-Nile. It’s all par for the course during a Gemini Sun cycle that includes two eclipses, retrograding Mercury, Saturn and Pluto and June 14th’s Saturn Uranus square. Whether personal or political, astrology’s t-squares tell us that the time has come to deal with people, situations and matters that have reached a boiling point. Bearing that in mind, we can put this week’s events into perspective and act accordingly.

Forecast May 24-30, 2021: It Starts With “Re”

Activity among the mutable signs will dominate the week’s events. A lunar eclipse, the start of a Mercury retrograde and Venus squaring Neptune and conjoining Mercury are among the highlights. Further, eclipses and retrogrades bring revelations. As the Sun has only just entered Gemini, Wednesday’s is the first of two eclipses and Mercury’s retrograde will last until June 22nd, the discoveries are just getting started. The first hint will arrive on Wednesday under the full Moon at 5 Sagittarius 26. That early degree places this Moon into a loose square to Jupiter at 1 Pisces 11. Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius, and ordinarily planetary alignments in Sagittarius to Jupiter have an inherent resonance and agreement. However, squares and oppositions expose tensions, and both Sag and Jupiter can be perilously overly optimistic. In this case, the Sagittarius Moon will be opposite the Gemini Sun and both will be squared by Jupiter. Gemini is the sign of information and news, while the Moon describes instinct and intuition. Despite what the MSM may be reporting or what others may be saying, paying attention to hunches, while following verifiable facts, is wise. The full Moon fray will immediately be followed by a Venus Neptune square on Thursday. This one suggests a misunderstanding or outright deception in an important relationship. On Friday Mercury and Venus will meet in analytical Gemini, and on Sunday assertive Mars will trine Neptune. Both are helpful aspects for clearing up confusion and charting a reliable course forward. Translation, instead of flying off the handle midweek, wait for clarification. Mars’ transit of Moon-ruling Cancer underscores the prompt to dismiss brainwashing and group think and to defer to internal guidance.


The next nudge to take a deeper look comes courtesy of Mercury’s retrograde, which begins on Sunday. This one will be underway during the second eclipse on June 10th, in Gemini, as well as the year’s second Saturn square to Uranus on June 14th. As mentioned last week, the second of these two eclipses creates a square to Neptune in Pisces. Mercury will also conjoin the Sun and Moon on the 10th, intensifying this square. The North and South Nodes of the Moon are also poised to get into the act, with the South in Sagittarius and North in Gemini. Though there are a variety of interpretations as to the meaning of the lunar Nodes, when eclipses occur in the same signs they will be activated. Generally speaking, the South describes a significant lesson or skill from the past, while the North indicates an area for growth. Clearly, friction between the planets in mutable signs is increasing. To determine where the unfolding action is about to play out in your life, take a look at your birth chart and note the natal planets and houses in mutable signs. Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces signal change and preparation for a new phase. Flexibility and adaptability are two of their key assets, assets that will prove highly beneficial as we reexamine, reorient and reboot.

Forecast May 17-23, 2021: Just The Facts Ma’am

This week the Sun will move into Gemini and Saturn will begin its five-month-long retrograde in Aquarius. Air signs are the domain of information, and a slew of revelations are inbound. During its journey through the mutable air sign, the Sun will oversee two eclipses, the next Saturn Uranus square and the retrogrades of Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto. In fixed air, Saturn is offering stoicism, structure and a pause for reflection. Ruler of Gemini and font of the 411, Mercury, will go retrograde next week. The simultaneous retrogrades of Mercury and Saturn suggest an examination of the recent past and where needed, a revisioning of future plans. Originally Saturn dipped into Aquarius from March 21st – July 1st last year. In the midst of the outbreak of COVID 19, making any sense of Saturn’s exploration of the sign was difficult. For one thing, aspects don’t happen in vacuums, and 2020 also saw substantial action involving Jupiter, Neptune and Pluto. For another, Saturn only made it to 1 Aquarius 57 before turning retrograde last May 11th. When its retrograde begins on Sunday, Saturn will be at 13 Aquarius 31. In the second decant, a sign’s character becomes clearer. Saturn’s retrograde will bring it back to 6 Aquarius 53, the point it first reached on February 14th. In 2021 most of the emphasis has shifted onto Saturn’s three squares with Uranus. When Saturn initially crossed this retrograde’s shadow point, its first square to Uranus was only three days away, on February 17th. Their next square is set for June 14th at 13:07 degrees.

Saturn often gets a bad rap. While Jupiter says yes and more, Saturn says no. The ringed planet symbolizes limitations. When in fire or water signs, its doses of reality have passionate and emotional expression that can be quite dramatic. In earth it can dole out harsh financial reality checks. In air, it challenges us to think and find meaning. Inquisitive, ingenious Aquarius possesses an exceptional talent for problem-solving. But we must stop and ask relevant questions before we can benefit from its brilliance. While the coming retrograde will end on October 10th, the Taskmaster will remain in Aquarius until March of 2023. Its final square with Uranus is due on December 24th, and on January 15th it will exit this retrograde’s shadow and probe further into the air sign’s stronger degrees. In other words, what we put off now will definitely be back, and in a more robust form. In the immediate cycle, the Gemini Sun will trine Saturn on June 3rd and conjoin Mercury on June 10th. Like Aquarius, Gemini is naturally curious. At home, Mercury’s insights can be transmitted instantly and with striking clarity. Unfortunately, Gemini and Mercury can also have the attention span of a gnat. Saturn is lending its renowned discipline and longevity to the Messenger’s ideas and discoveries. Their combination is a remarkable tool for processing the incoming disclosures. It all starts on Thursday, when the Sun enters Gemini.

Forecast May 10-16, 2021: Watch The Water

The week’s “big” news is Jupiter’s ingress into Pisces on Thursday. Leading up to the kingly planet’s arrival, several planets, like a group of faithful courtiers, will gather harmoniously for a royal welcome. Highlights include a new Moon in Taurus, supported by a Mars Uranus sextile, a Mercury Saturn trine and a Sun Neptune sextile. Each year’s new Taurus Moon offers an opportunity to affirm abundance. On one level, the fixed earth sign is the domain of raw materials, resources and financial markets. On another level, the sign represents what we value, materially or otherwise. At a hefty 21 Taurus 18, this Moon embodies the sign’s strength and substance. Mars has a reputation for agitation and Uranus for disruption. Yet even these rascals will find themselves making a cooperative sextile under Tuesday’s new Moon. Mars is in Cancer and Uranus in Taurus, and this water earth combo will also resonate with the melodious tone set by the morning’s Moon Neptune sextile. On Wednesday collaboration will continue when Mercury, at home in Gemini, trines Saturn in Aquarius. This air-sign alliance gives form and stamina to bright ideas conceived under the new Moon. Next, the Sun’s sextile to Neptune overnight brings the emphasis back to earth and water and sets the stage for Jupiter’s grand entrance.

Titanic and voluminous, this transit will occur in three phases, with the first stage running from May 13th – July 28, 2021. Ancient astrologers considered Jupiter to be the ruler of Pisces. But once Neptune was discovered in 1846, it was assigned rulership of the mutable water sign. Jupiter and Neptune share an expansive quality, and in Pisces, their boundlessness is extended infinitely. Pisces is said to collect and integrate pieces of all twelve signs, a characteristic that gives the sign its remarkable empathy. Though Jupiter will only make its way to 2 degrees of the sign, before turning retrograde on June 20th, its splash will give us a sense of the nature of its merger with Neptune. Above the surface, a set of mutable sign eclipses are on the way, as are the retrogrades of Saturn and Mercury (in air signs) and significantly, the next Saturn Uranus square on June 14th. The first eclipse, at 5 Sagittarius 26, on May 26th will bear down on its ruler Jupiter, while the second, at 19 Gemini 47, on June 10th, will put the pressure on Neptune. On June 11th Mars will press into fiery Leo, where it will be until July 29th. This puts it on an unavoidable collision course with Jupiter, at an incendiary 29 degrees, one day after Jupiter emerges from Pisces. Moist hot air over the ocean breeds hurricanes. Whether 2021’s manifest literally or figuratively, the power of water, element of emotions, is about to assert itself. Fittingly, Pisces will be presiding over the incoming tides. Detached, flexible and forgiving, it invites us to align with its spiritual perspective. Mythic, imaginative and endlessly creative, it also invites us to embrace its artistry.

Forecast May 3-9, 2021: Some Breathing Room

If the four-planet pileup in languid Taurus has left you feeling a little stuck, take heart. This week Mercury and Venus are on the move. But not so fast. Before leaving Taurus, both will have to settle some business with Jupiter. Time spent in Taurus has been particularly problematic for speedy Mercury, the fleet-footed planet of travel and communication. Of all of the planets, it is the least interested in being bogged down. But the Messenger has been grounded since April 19th. On Monday night it will enter Gemini, the sign governing technology, commerce and media. One of Mercury’s domiciles, Gemini is where the year’s next Mercury retrograde will occur, from May 29th to June 22nd. Mercury will cross the retrograde’s shadow point, 16 Gemini 08, on May 14th. Before that yellow light flashes, we can cruise into the fast lane and enjoy a little exhilaration. Curious Gemini is also quite the social networker, and Venus will follow Mercury into the mutable air sign on Friday. For amorous Venus, the visit to luxury loving Taurus hasn’t been so bad. After all, Taurus is one of Venus’s home signs, so the seductive planet enjoys spending time in its sensuous realm. That being said, a girl has to get out. In Gem, the planet of pleasure will stimulate desires to mix and mingle. For singles, this could mean sprucing up social media profiles, especially the ones on dating sites, and for everyone, invitations to social gatherings and opportunities to travel are likely to abound between May 8th and June 2nd. With a Mercury retrograde on the horizon, taking advantage of them, sooner rather than later, is advised.

Unusually, Jupiter is the source of two of the week’s biggest snares. On Monday, before changing signs, Mercury will have to slip past a Jupiter square, and on Saturday Venus, while still in financial Taurus, is set for a bout with the normally happy-go-lucky planet. Venus and Jupiter both deal with money. In lofty Aquarius, is Jupiter checking on or being checked on monetary excesses? Either way, fiscal friction is in the air. The week’s third significant square is between the Taurus Sun and restrictive Saturn. On Monday, this one presents another iteration of the conflict between consumption and limitations. The final signal that financial affairs are likely to figure prominently in the week’s events comes from Thursday’s Venus Pluto trine. These two conjoined way back on January 28th, under the full Leo Moon, thus initiating a cycle. Under that Moon, the world learned about Roaring Kitty’s Gamestop sensation, and the havoc it’s wreaking on markets. This time Venus and Pluto will meet under a supportive earth sign trine, opening the next chapter of the saga. Because a now retrograde Pluto is intent on cleaning out corruption in “the system”, this meeting is intriguing. With clever Mercury’s mental faculties restored in Gemini, perhaps we’ll be able to make sense of the unraveling mystery.

Forecast Apr 26-May 2, 2021: To Hades And Back

All three of astrology’s outer planets will be activated this week, indicating that an extraordinarily eventful week is at hand. Pluto’s fingerprints will be all over the week, starting with an unpleasant square from the waxing Libra Moon on Monday, and ending with a Moon Pluto conjunction and a constructive conversation with Mercury on Sunday. Themes of destruction and resurrection are shared by Pluto and the sign modern astrologers assign to its rulership, Scorpio. On Monday night the Moon will be full at 7 Scorpio 06, and on Tuesday Pluto will station and begin its annual retrograde (lasting until October 6th). Pluto is associated with the mythological descent into Hades, a harrowing journey from which only the heroic re-emerge. Whether we explore its shadowy realms for the week or for the entire retrograde, we are being invited to delve into darkest recesses of the psyche, in search of truth and transformation. Helping us recognize key symbols and critical signs in this odyssey, fellow outer planet Neptune will offer reliable guidance throughout the week.

Artistic Neptune will be singing in the language of love all week long, but we’ll need to tune in tightly to hear its music of the spheres. For example, as the Scorpio Moon contends with a nearly nonstop barrage of planetary challenges, it will receive a sizable and insightful trine from Neptune on Tuesday. By Thursday, a Mercury Neptune sextile will be fully formed, offering a stellar tool for applying inspiration to real-world problems. But be warned, superficial platitudes will immediately be checked by Neptune’s square to the Sagittarius Moon. Under this Moon, zealotry will be out in full force, and only the sign’s philosophical substance will save us from the sway of fanatics. On Friday the Moon will move into serious Capricorn, where Neptune will graciously sextile it overnight on Saturday. Creative Neptune is considered to be the higher octave of Venus, and Venus will be the final planet of the week to sextile Neptune. They will link up on Sunday, sounding a harmonious note. Not to be left out, liberating Uranus will conjoin the Sun on Friday. Even in the deluge of fear-porn and chaos, the brilliance of this a-ha moment will ring out. Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury. Indeed the two are also, if not singing, certainly communicating from the same hymnal. Together in Taurus, their messages will be amplified by agreeable trines beaming from the Capricorn Moon. That Moon will also trine the Sun and Venus, in Taurus, on Saturday, before conjoining Pluto on Sunday. This places six of the ten planets in the grounded, pragmatic and dependable earth signs. Mercury will trine Pluto early on Sunday morning, bringing solid know-how to endeavors. If we’re committed to taking the hero’s journey, Mercury and Pluto are availing themselves to writing down the bones.
