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 Mar 8-14, 2021: Life Is But A Dream

If the first two months of 2021 have brought their share of fatigue or a feeling of being burned out, relief is on the way. This week four planets are offering a retreat from all of the electricity that’s been surging from Aquarius and Uranus. Artistic Neptune will make exact conjunctions with the Sun on Wednesday and with Venus on Saturday. In between, the Moon will slip into Pisces on Thursday morning for a two-day rest. In mellow, mutable Pisces, it too will link up with the Sun, Venus and Neptune, before starting its new phase on Saturday, in the deep end of 23 Pisces 04. Translation, it’s time to unplug, relax and reflect. Pisces is astrology’s twelfth sign, making its Sun cycle an ideal time for completion and contemplation. On the horizon, the Sun is preparing to blaze into irrepressible Aries on the 20th, immediately followed by Venus on the 21st. Before all of that dynamism is unleashed, we can access the mythic and mystic realms of metaphysical Pisces. Here, the psychic connections and creative inspiration will be fully flowing from the Neptune-infused Sun, Moon and Venus.


Before getting fully submerged, the Moon will first conjoin other key planets. This includes a meeting with Pluto in pragmatic Capricorn on Monday and conjunctions with Saturn on Tuesday and Jupiter and Mercury on Wednesday in ingenious Aquarius. Those may help us form the correct questions that we wish to posit to the Muses we’re about to meet once the Moon dives into Pisces. From Wednesday into Thursday the planets will begin drawing us away from busyness and hyper-mental stimulation of Aquarius, into the realms of dreams, symbols and magic. In this psychedelic state, we’ll find the ambrosia that is heavenly, possibly addictive and of course, totally imaginary. However, that doesn’t negate the real world value of insights we can glean from automatic writing, meditating or escaping into a book, film or television series during this voyage. Pisces isn’t asking us to make sense of any of it, let alone any major life decisions. Don’t! It simply wants to converse with us in a language that is poetic, spiritual and deeply rooted in the psyche. Mental Mercury will travel through Pisces from March 15th through April 3rd. But that transit may lack the grace and enchantment of this week’s aspects. For one thing, Mars will t-bone it on the 23rd, from Mercury-ruled Gemini. For another, as mentioned the Sun and Venus will leave astral Pisces for assertive Aries shortly after Mercury’s arrival. That having been said, Mercury’s visit, and especially its conjunction to Neptune on the 29th, may drop a few more doses of divination. Lastly, generous Jupiter will bring more groovy guidance when it transits the first decant of Pisces from May 13th – July 28th.

Forecast Mar 1-7, 2021: Out Of The Shadows

Mars’ move into Gemini on Wednesday and Mercury’s conjunction with Jupiter on Thursday are this week’s highlights. But its real cat amongst the pigeons is the seemingly innocuous Moon. La Luna will instigate commotion amongst the fixed and mutable signs beginning on Tuesday night, when she slips into passionate, secretive Scorpio. As their name implies, fixed signs, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, crave predictability. But when repression is the price of reliability, watch out. An opposition from disruptive Uranus, as well as a series of squares from Saturn, Mercury and Jupiter, threaten to throw even scrupulously stealth Scorpio into turmoil. This volatile tug of war with Uranus puts Scorpio’s love of temptation in direct conflict with Taurus’ inclination for stability. In this matchup, sturdy, steady Taurus is unlikely to contain Scorpio’s destructive tendencies and Uranus’ disorderly imperatives. Meanwhile the planets in Aquarius are poised to expose schisms between private lives and public faces. Scorpio and Aquarius both prize honestly. They just have diverging motives and uses for it. In this case, dissension between psychological interiors and outward appearances will require reconciliation. Softening the blows, and perhaps helping to integrate the Hadean content, this Scorpio Moon will trine Venus, the Sun and Neptune before it heads into mutable Sagittarius on Thursday. Also, the gentle coaxing from Wednesday’s Venus Uranus sextile will encourage cooperation between factions.

But even after the Moon exits the underworld of Scorpio, one’s dark secrets will not yet necessarily be safe. Under this Moon, Jupiter, the ruling planet of Sagittarius, will exacerbate Mercurial impulses to blurt things out. In part that’s because mischievous and mouthy Mercury will conjoin excessive Jupiter in the erratic air sign of Aquarius on Thursday evening. Concurrently, on Wednesday Mars will have left Taurus for Mercury-ruled, mutable Gemini. Even in these earliest degrees of the chatty air sign, the planet of provocation will make its contribution to information sharing. Right before Mercury and Jupiter get to talking, the red planet will make an exact opposition to the Sagittarius Moon. It is said that the truth will set one free, and freedom is an aspiration shared by Mars, Aquarius and Sagittarius. Leagues beneath all of Thursday’s obvious hubbub, Neptune will cross the shadow of its forthcoming retrograde at 20 Pisces 24. This is a point we will revisit on December 1st. Probing Mars will be in inquisitive Gemini until April 23rd. There it will prod the planets in Pisces and activate the oppositions of the lunar Nodes, presently in Gemini and Sagittarius. The Nodes, similarly to Neptune, speak to a larger mission, while the personal planets bring conversations about ideas and ideals right down to earth. Mutable signs support release and change. The Sun, Venus and Neptune, in receptive, mutable Pisces, have already begun sounding the call for internal wholeness. This week, the introspective Moon may well lay bare the personal bondage that has impeded freedom.

Forecast Feb 22-28, 2021: Into The Mystic

Quietly in the background, the lunar Nodes have been working their mutable magic. Last May, when all of the cardinal sign action was the center of attention, the Nodes stepped away from the fray and slipped into Gemini and Sagittarius. For the past two months, the planetary focus has been on the dogged fixed signs. On one hand, people whose charts have strong mutable sign placements have felt relieved. For Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces, the pressure’s been off. On that notorious other hand, the role of the mutable modality is just as essential as those of its counterparts. Where the cardinals thrust and probe and the fixed resolve and sustain, mutables dissolve and prepare. Their capacity to soften is accentuated when Venus is engaged. On Thursday, the planet of love will join the Sun and Neptune in the mutable water sign of Pisces. There, she’ll be on course for her own t-square wtih the lunar Nodes.

To review, the South Node (of the Moon), describes the lessons we’ve mastered and the North the evolutionary path before us. Unlike the planets, the Nodes travel backwards, from 29 degrees to zero. Since late October, the Nodes and Neptune have been in t-square of less than three degrees. When one of the outer planets is active, its impact is experienced more collectively than personally, making the exact nature of its influence difficult to discern. This is particularly true in the case of nebulous, elusive Neptune. But make no mistake, the North Node in Gemini, South in Sag and Neptune in Pisces have been busy, subtly activating the 18-21 points in all of our charts. Presently Neptune is direct. During the next month it will continue pressing ahead, while the Nodes move back to the mid-teen-range. Giving us a more explicit experience, the Sun’s square to the Nodes will be exact on March 5th and Venus’s on the 9th. Mercury will enter Pisces on March 15th, conjoin Neptune on the 21st and square the Nodes on March 25th. But Pisces isn’t about thinking; it’s about sensing. For now, we can explore the its devotional realms through the Sun and Venus. In Pisces, the Sun identifies with the individual self and the greater Self or soul, and in Pisces Venus moves beyond material expression into the mystic. Intrinsically she recognizes, and removes, obstacles. This year she’ll have extra support from the Nodes, with the South urging release and the North pointing the way forward. On March 21st, Venus will leave spiritual Pisces for spirited Aries. Between now and then, her journey will cut to the heart of matters, telling us what stands between us and love while offering to dilute it. Underscoring the mutable point, the Moon will move into Virgo on Friday, expanding our t-square to a grand cross and becoming full early Saturday morning. Working much like a super computer, this full Moon, and later Mercury, can crunch all of the incoming intuitive data and help us apply its wisdom practically.

Forecast Feb 15-21, 2021: Shake It Up

Giving us an immediate hint about its unfolding excitement, this week starts with the waxing Moon in saucy Aries. Headstrong and audacious, the Mars-ruled sign needs to be where the action is. This brief lunar transit is the opening act for the week’s main event, Wednesday’s Saturn square to Uranus. When the planet of tradition is confronted by the planet of rebellion, the exhilaration that began the week is likely jump the shark into another dimension. This one is the first of the three squares that the two powerhouse planets will make during 2021. Those squares are in fact one of the year’s key signatures. Last January, when Saturn and Pluto joined forces, only global news junkies were raising the alarm about the spread of a virus from Wuhan. It took a couple of months for many to associate the pandemic with that now infamous conjunction. Similarly, the 17th might come and go “without incident”. Then again, unpredictable Uranus may make its presence, and the nature of these squares, inescapable. Financial markets, the banking system, real estate and commodities are the most likely venues for expression. But politics, technology and geology/space weather are good candidates, too. In any case, Saturn represents the rules and limits, and Uranus upheaval and chaos. Push is undeniably coming to shove, and even stern, stoic Saturn finds himself in Aquarius, the sign of revolution and freedom. Also on the 17th, the Sun will be in the very late degrees of the electrifying sign.

On Thursday the Sun will slip into flexible, peaceful Pisces, and perhaps turn this week’s volume down a few notches. Pisces is the mutable water sign ruled by Neptune, according to modern astrologers, and by Jupiter according to ancient astrology. Both planets bring an expansive element into the mix. In 2021, Mercury, Venus and Mars will change signs during the Sun’s transit of the twelfth sign, which will begin changing the timbre of the year. These four weeks offer an annual opportunity to swim in the realms of creativity, compassion and spirituality. The shift can feel like drifting off into dreams. That Pisces serenity may be upset by Friday’s Venus square to Mars. With these two, it’s personal. Seeing both sides, from Pisces empathetic and holistic perspective, may be the best elixir for reinstating the sign’s ease. On Saturday Mercury’s retrograde will end, further signaling that smoother times are inbound. The week concludes with the Moon moving into domestic Cancer on Sunday evening. This monthly homecoming instills a sense of abiding security. Finally, a watery overnight trine between the Cancer Moon and young Pisces Sun may be the ticket to some exceptional astral travel.
