Forecast Dec 13-31, 2021: Living The Dream

2021 has familiarized everyone with the essence of the Saturn Uranus squares in fixed signs. Even after December 24th’s final exact square, Saturn and Uranus will remain in tight alignment for much of 2022. Additionally the eclipses and node shifts into Taurus and Scorpio will apply more pressure to the fixed signs. That said, for beleaguered Tauruses, Leos, Scorpios and Aquariuses, with yet another year of obstacles ahead of them, some relief is in sight. On December 28th Jupiter will stop inflating tensions when it exits Aquarius and re-enters Pisces.

In the mutable water sign, it will collaborate with immeasurable Neptune. As noted in the previous article, Neptune’s spheres of influence range from delusion to spiritual enlightenment. Jupiter will be in Pisces from December 28, 2021 to May 10, 2022 and from October 27th to December 20th of next year. In the collective, the co-presence of Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces may manifest as mass confusion over further virus infiltration and mutation and incoherent and widely varying public health policies. On the other hand, soul unfoldment may take place at an exponentially accelerated rate. Artistry of a profound caliber is also likely to flourish during this time. The creativity that Neptune and Pisces foster is of course highly susceptible to intoxication and spacing out, and Jupiter expands whatever it comes into contact with. To ground all of the inspiration that will beam in from Jupiter and Neptune, the cosmos is serving up a hearty dose of sober, serious Capricorn.

The first of three Venus Pluto conjunctions in Capricorn took place on December 11th. On December 13th Mercury will enter the cardinal earth sign, followed by the Sun on the 21st. Astrology’s tenth sign is where ambitions form and where the work to achieve their aims gets done. The next Venus Pluto conjunction will occur on December 25th, and the final one on March 3, 2022. Remarkably, informative Mercury will join Venus and Pluto in late December and Mars be in the midst of Venus and Pluto in early March. Mercury and Pluto will conjoin at 25 Cap 53 on December 30th and Venus, Mars and Pluto will meet in the 27 degree range near the new Pisces Moon of March 2nd. Translation: the co-mingling of Pisces’s imagination and Capricorn’s pragmatism starting now will culminate in early March. Afterwards, transforming Pluto will carry, and amplify, the Capricorn component into the rest of the year. Fortunately, the Capricorn Pisces axis, that all of the aforementioned planets will be traversing, forms the agreeable sexile. This is a flowing aspect, in contrast to the harshness of the fixed sign squares. Though Capricorn and Pisces attain their ends in starkly different ways, their energies can be synthesized harmoniously and to great effect. So even while long-abiding structures continue collapsing, it’s time to start living the dream.

Forecast Nov 29-Dec 12, 2021: It’s About To Get Real

Precisely conveying the meaning of Neptune is about as easy as nailing down a piece of jello. Fully describing its retrograde is even more complicated. Then again, this is the elusive planet of dreams, illusion and deception that is invisible to the naked eye. Its gamut runs from fully realized enlightenment to clinical insanity, with addictions thrown somewhere in between. Definitions aside, the distant rascal has been retrograde since June 25th, and on December 1st it will station and begin to make forward progress. Fittingly, Neptune’s shift into down gear went largely undetected. June 10th’s solar eclipse in Gemini and June 17th’s Saturn Uranus square were making all of the headlines. That doesn’t mean that the oceanic outer planet hasn’t been performing its primary duty, dissolution, for this entire time. Since October 30th, when provocative Mars entered emotionally-charged Scorpio, Neptune has had a willing and most capable partner in the revelation sector. Cooperatively working from water signs, the two planets have crystalized much and supported a good deal of reprioritization. Notably, Neptune’s coming station is tied to the bookend solar eclipse to June 10th’s.


On one hand, December 4th marks the end of the Gemini/Sagittarius eclipse series that began on June 5, 2020. Further, Gemini, Sagittarius and Pisces (where Neptune is) are all mutable signs. Mutable signs are associated with closure. On the other hand, new Moons signify initiation. When said new Moon is in Sagittarius, the next horizon is emphasized. In the background, indelible Neptune is presiding over this moment, when one tide is coming in as the as old one pulls out. If the intangibility of this aspect feels too nebulous, Venus and Pluto are about to linkup in down-to-earth Capricorn.


On December 11th the two will meet for the first of their coming conjunctions. In the sign of institutions, government and big business, the two are bound to ignite macro-economic trends that will manifest into the lives of multitudes of ordinary people. Several big ticket spending items will be before the US Congress at this time. Capricorn is of course where Venus, the personal money planet, will be retrograde from December 19th through January 29, 2022. It is also the sign reforming Pluto inhabited when the GFC got going in earnest back in 2008.
This combination of a personal planet in direct contact with a generational, global influencer suggests that their impact will be clear and substantial. Also, that these meetings will take place in the Saturn-ruled earth sign, underscores the element of sobriety, an interesting antidote to Neptune’s less desirable, escapist tendencies. It is said that Jupiter represents belief and Neptune faith. The new (Jupiter-ruled) Sagittarius Moon and eclipse will offer hope and aspiration. Neptune, with some undeniable clarity from Mars in Scorpio, is delivering the insights. Finally, Venus and Pluto are bringing reality to the party.

Forecast Nov 22-28, 2021: The Autumn Of Our Discontent

Everything is relative. Following the past month of escalated Scorpio intensity, the coming week doesn’t look so bad. In fact, it even has a few sweet spots. Those include the Moon’s visits to soothing Cancer and thoughtful Virgo. On the whole though, the infectious optimism of the Sagittarius Sun is still struggling to gain momentum. This week’s biggest obstacle will come from an ornery Leo Moon that will be presiding over the Thanksgiving holiday. On Wednesday night however, before things heat up, the early Leo Moon will meetup with the Sag Sun to greet Mercury as it arrives into sunny Sag. Popping out to mingle with friends, during one of the week’s high points, might be as good as the celebrations get. Thursday’s hard aspects to the Moon, from no less than Mars, Saturn and Uranus, are positioned to trigger eruptions, with only the slightest of provocation. Translation: if you want to enjoy the holiday meal, don’t bring up politics. On Friday, that embattled Leo Moon will oppose excessive Jupiter, just as shoppers are faced with skyrocketing prices and empty store shelves. Add a hostile square from agitating Mars, and fights and looting become real possibilities. Further zapping holiday spirits, both Mercury and Jupiter are associated with travel. The Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius Sun, along with Mercury, could expand travel disruptions.


Thinly disguised as “sickouts”, (federally illegal) protests by pilots and airline workers against vaccine mandates and travel passports have been impacting travel in America for the past few months. Over this critical weekend, those battles could heat up or weather problems may wreak havoc. In Sagittarius, nimble Mercury is at its detriment, leaving travelers fewer options. Those who hit the road instead are unlikely to fare much better. Crowded highways and rising gas prices are bound to bring irritation levels to a pitch.


Those living outside of the U.S. can of course completely escape the strife surrounding 2021’s Thanksgiving and Black Friday rituals. But the eclipses of November 19th and December 4th are making their presence felt across the planet. Whether on the Polish/Belarusian border or in Uganda, reverberations from the first and pressure from the incoming eclipse are in effect. So, back to those easier going lunar transits. Despite oppositions from Venus and Pluto, the Cancer Moon will present opportunities for nurturing and care-taking early in the week. And on Friday night, the Moon will enter patient Virgo. After two mild squares from the Sun and Mercury, it will receive ongoing support throughout the weekend. This includes trines from Venus, Uranus and Pluto and a sextile from Mars. Practical, unassuming Virgo has the zodiac’s best stash of calm and clarity. Given this week’s challenges, the Moon’s Virgo visit may be one of its finest assets, and a very pleasant aspect for closing it out.

Forecast Nov 15-21, 2021: The Struggle For Freedom

This week will pair the contradictory forces of fixed sign tension with the Sun’s annual arrival into freedom-loving Sagittarius. The Scorpio Sun will square Jupiter on Monday, Mars will oppose Uranus on Wednesday, the full Moon will clock in at a formidable 27 Taurus 14 early Friday morning and Scorpio-based Mercury will square Jupiter on Saturday. That full Moon includes a lunar eclipse, the first of an incoming series that will last until October 2023. In the near term, tensions that have been building since the Sun entered Scorpio on October 23rd or since November 4th’s new Scorpio Moon, the one opposite of change-making Uranus, are heading to the surface. This week could bring important and overdue resolutions. In the wider context, this week’s events are connected to larger timelines. 2021 has featured three exact Saturn Uranus squares, in fixed signs. Those squares will remain largely in tact throughout 2022, and the fixed-sign eclipse and node cycles will last until 2023. On Sunday, the Sun will exit transformative Scorpio and enter affable and eternally hopeful Sagittarius.

Astrology’s Jupiter-ruled, mutable fire sign can always see the silver linings and new possibilities. But with Scorpio’s turbulent waters only receding slightly, Sag will have to work harder than usual to recover and retain its natural buoyancy. The past 18 months have put the pressure on the happy-go-lucky sign. The South Node has been dredging up its past since May of 2020, and the eclipses have been taking place on the Gemini/Sagittarius axis since June of that tumultuous year. The final eclipse of that series will occur on December 4th, and in January the South Node will exit Sagittarius. But it will enter Scorpio, where it will be until July of 2023. More immediately, Mercury will remain in brooding Scorpio until November 24th and Mars until December 13th. Philosophical Sag needs to ponder the meaning of the changes brought on by the past 18 months. Resilient Sag will look for the new opportunities those changes now present. Restless Sag will start charting a way forward, even if the trip includes traversing troubled waters. With fire, mutability and Jupiter in its DNA, spirited and spiritual Sagittarius can’t help but shake itself off and make the best of whatever circumstances it finds itself in. Its sunny disposition and flexibility stand in marked contrast to the intransigence of fixed signs. Under the ongoing conditions, its exuberance will remain subdued. That said, its indomitable optimism is a critical resource. Journeying through the perilous waters of Scorpio can be harrowing. It is the Pluto ruled sign associated with ruin and destruction. Sagittarius offers perspective, positivity and its arrow, forever pointing upward and onward.

Forecast Nov 8-14, 2021: Nice And Easy

The week’s flashpoint will arrive on Wednesday when Mercury and Mars will square Saturn under a prickly Aquarius Moon. Thankfully, that hotspot is buffered by the Moon’s visits to Capricorn and Pisces. Under current alignments, those lunar transits will present some very harmonious options. It all gets started on Monday morning when the waxing Moon conjoins Venus, also newly arrived into Capricorn. As Venus is just setting up house here, for her four month stay, this conference with the intuitive Moon provides a good opportunity for receiving hunches and making strategic decisions. On Monday and Tuesday, Capricorn pragmatism will take on an intrinsic quality. That’s because the Moon will be informed by the Sun, Mercury and Mars in watery Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces, the mutable water sign. Add a trine to Uranus in earthy Taurus and a conjunction to Pluto, also in earth-sign Capricorn, and the productive possibilities will reveal themselves. Then comes that bump in the road.


When the Moon shifts into fixed Aquarius Tuesday night, the planets in Scorpio become more problematic. In fact, two of them, Mercury and Mars, will add stress by squaring strict Saturn on Wednesday. Saturn sets limits. Mercury prompting paired with Mars chutzpa, with both instigating from ride or die Scorpio, will test those limits. The Moon’s squares to the Sun, Mercury, Mars and Uranus will further strain tensions. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. This is fight to the death territory. For those who have zero interest in participating in gladiatorial matches, the Moon will slip into gentle Pisces in the wee hours of Friday morning.


Like the Capricorn trip, the Moon’s Pisces journey will be met with planets forming supportive angles. In water, the Sun, Mercury and Mars will trine the Moon, and in dreamy Pisces, it will conjoin Neptune. From the earth signs, Venus, Uranus and Pluto will form those easy going sextiles. Some friction, from a Mercury opposition to Uranus on Saturday afternoon, will stoke embers from midweek battles. But by that time the Moon will be en route to that conjunction with oceanic Neptune. Pisces not only wants everyone to get along, it wants to take everyone to their Zen zone. So though Mercury can, and probably will, stir the pot, a tremendous opportunity to step back and far, far away from the fray will also be present. The week wraps up with the Moon moving into spirited Aries, from where it will form a constructive sextile to Saturn late Sunday night. With only the South Node in a fellow fire sign, Sagittarius, even a feisty Aries Moon will find little kindling for fights. Further, mature Saturn’s tap will encourage adult responses to any conflicts that manage to permeate the peace Pisces left. With a Mars Uranus opposition and fixed sign full Moon and eclipse set for the following week, this week is our last best chance to take things nice and easy.

Forecast Nov 1-7, 2021: Battle Lines

Thursday’s new Moon in Scorpio and Friday’s sign changes for Venus and Mercury are set to amplify larger trends. The Saturn Uranus squares in fixed signs have been a hallmark of 2021. As those two powerhouse planets remain in tight alignment through 2022, many of the conditions set this year will cement. For the past two months, as the personal planets cycled through Virgo and Libra, the fixed sign friction has receded, a bit. But the Sun’s entrance in Scorpio on October 23rd put the element of fixed water on the table, and set the Sun on a course for squares to Saturn and Jupiter and an opposition to Uranus. That opposition will be exact on November 4th, the day of the new Scorpio Moon. This also positions the Moon in opposition to astrology’s change maker. Further, that new Moon will reach its zenith on November 19th, the date of the first in the incoming series of Taurus/Scorpio eclipses. Dialing up the intensity, driving Mars entered Scorpio on October 30th. It will square Saturn on November 10th, oppose Uranus on the 17th, two days ahead of that eclipse, and square Jupiter on December 7th. Once Mercury moves into Scorpio on Friday, it will run the same gauntlet. In fact, a few hours before Mercury will square restrictive Saturn on November 10th, it will conjoin Mars.That meeting is analogous to two generals conferring on battle strategies. To say that Saturn isn’t accustomed to taking orders is an understatement. It implements order. Translation: November 10th isn’t an ideal day for picking fights. If initiated around this time, conflicts will likely be protracted and end up fraught with unforeseen twists and turns (thank you Uranus). All of the tension will be adding fuel to December 24th’s third Saturn Uranus square. A day later, December 25th, a newly retrograde Venus will conjoin Pluto. With Venus entering Saturn’s home sign of Capricorn for an unusually long stay, Saturn’s fingerprints will be all over the next four months, and beyond.


Pessimistic, moody and melancholic, Capricorn is not where the warm and fuzzies hang out. Hopes that the planet of beauty and pleasure can infuse the industrious sign with cheer, and yield constructive accomplishments, are not unfounded. Capricorn is ambitious and materialistic, and its regard for earned rewards compliments Venus’s appreciation of money. That said, the oncoming Venus retrograde, from December 19th through January 29, 2022, with its gravitational center conjunct Capricorn-based Pluto, suggests a destructive undertow being added to fixed sign entrenchments. Ruthless, transformative Pluto is of course Scorpio’s ruler. So its presence is already resonating with the Sun and Mars, and soon will be with that new Scorpio Moon and Mercury. The coming Venus transit of serious, sober Cap will last through March 6, 2022. Interestingly enough, on that same day, Mars will also exit Capricorn and enter Aquarius. Stoic, enduring Saturn will be waiting for them.

Forecast Oct 25-31, 2021: Skin In The Game

The last time Mars transited Scorpio was from November 19, 2019 to January 3, 2020. At the time, the origins of COVID-19 were known and the virus was known to be spreading. Scorpio is astrology’s best secret keeper. While medical professionals in China, like the late Dr. Li, raised alarm bells, most of the world remained happily oblivious to the deadly threat. By the time Mars exited the fixed water sign, word was getting out. Epochal events are few and far between, and the pandemic is certainly one. While many astrologers correlate the Saturn Pluto conjunction of January 2020 with the pandemic’s onset, the power of Mars in Scorpio can never be underestimated. Looking back, its precursory role was a key component in the mix. How many lives could have been saved if truth tellers had not been silenced? 2021’s visit, from October 30th to December 13th, coincides with the beginning of two other significant Scorpio cycles.


It takes Mars roughly two years to travel through the entire zodiac. With the exception of prolonged stays due to retrogradation, the planet of raw power stays in each sign for a little less than two months. On November 19, 2021, the axis of eclipses will begin shifting from Gemini/Sagittarius to Taurus/Scorpio, a series that will last through October 28, 2023. On October 11, 2023, for the first time since 2021, Mars will re-enter Scorpio. Further, the South Node of the Moon will move into Scorpio in January of 2022 and remain there until July of 2023. Translation: it’s time to get comfortable with Scorpio.


If that suggestion sounds about as appealing as getting a pet snake, then the next two years will support exploration of the aversion. Snakes are a symbol of transformation, and have long been associated with the sign. Mars probes. When visiting its modern home sign, Aries, its motives are direct and usually obvious. When traversing its ancient home sign, Scorpio, its presence is undeniably felt. Scorpio is the domain of deep-seated, core emotions, and Scorpio and Mars are immensely passionate. In the near term, this visit is getting underway while the Sun is in Scorpio, and on the exact day when that Sun has a tough square to Saturn. Is the taskmaster reprising its 2020 role or underscoring Scorpio imperatives to make changes? There will be a new Scorpio Moon on November 4th and Mercury will be in Scorpio from November 5th through 24th. Mars in Scorpio will indicate where we have real skin in the game, and which skins need shedding. Competitiveness, envy and desires for revenge are a few of Scorpio’s unpleasant messengers. Identifying the psychological needs they represent, and finding healthy ways to fulfill those needs, might make the path ahead lighter and less daunting. Additionally, imagining life two years from now, when the healthier replacements are fully installed, is another way to put Scorpio’s dark inspiration to work.

Forecast Oct 18-24, 2021: Bracing For Impact

The week gets off to a euphoric start as Jupiter and Mercury go direct, the Moon enters adventurous Aries and Mars trines lucky Jupiter. But a Mars square to Pluto is building, and the Sun is about to leave the politeness of Libra for the raw honesty of Scorpio. Add Wednesday’s full Moon, at 27 Aries 26 to the mix, and things are about to get interesting. No one loves fire and ferocity quite as much as audacious Aries. The cardinal fire sign simply can’t sit still. Directed to a purpose, the Mars-ruled sign’s vigor and vitality are particularly useful when applied to physical tasks. Monday’s Mars connection to expansive Jupiter will further raise enthusiasm levels, leading into Wednesday morning’s full Moon. Aries rarely makes it the finish line. Its job is to fire the starting gun. Overdoing it in the first part of the week could lead to the sign’s infamous burnout. Grounding and perhaps soothing the overly spirited, the Moon will move into the fixed earth sign of Taurus on Wednesday afternoon.


One of astrology’s homes of nourishment, the other being Cancer, Taurus invites us to slow down, get centered and indulge in some serious self-care. It is where the tactile and tangible aspects of life take precedence. Unfortunately for the sign of simple pleasures, squares to the Moon from Saturn and Jupiter, as well as a jolt from Uranus, are in the offing, and that Mars Pluto square will be exact on Thursday. Provocative Mars will be coming at destructive Pluto from an uncompromising 90 degrees, forcing some issue or other to the fore. Mars is one of the personal planets, and Pluto is one of the transpersonal outer planets. Recently stationed direct, transfiguring Pluto is once again activating the late degrees of Capricorn, the sign of governments, industry and economies. Pluto first entered Capricorn in January 2008 at the start of the GFC, so events of global magnitude are mostly certainly in its wheelhouse. Mars’ involvement in this confrontation articulates the personal impact of such affairs. Venus is the personal planet of money, and it will not only turn retrograde in Capricorn on December 19th, but it will conjoin Pluto on December 25th. What Mars and Pluto unearth now is likely to be deeply tied to Venus’s exceptionally long Capricorn transit. Furthering themes of power, passion and systemic upheaval, the Sun will enter Pluto-ruled Scorpio late on Friday night.


Shamanic Scorpio is where corruption either hides out or undergoes purification. It represents an instinctive quest for the truth. Presently, the White House has proposed giving the U.S. government the power to monitor all financial transactions above $600 USD. That act alone threatens to expose unfathomable sums of unreported income. Meanwhile, the end of the road, to where countless Congressional members have kicked the proverbial can, looms. Detective Scorpio is about to crack open the books, and it’s unlikely to be pretty.

Forecast Oct 11-17, 2021: Emergence

The Moon’s entrance into accomplished Capricorn midday on Monday sets a productive tone for the incoming week. The presence of the Sun, Mercury, Mars in Libra however, could give that ambitious Moon more than a few obstacles to overcome on Tuesday, via a series of squares. Saturn-ruled Cap isn’t known for agility. But the nimble moves mastered when the gauntlet is thrown down on Tuesday will come in handy on Sunday, when the Libra Sun squares Pluto. To put it another way, issues willfully ignored early in the week will resurface with a vengeance on Sunday. A hefty trine to that Cap Moon from original Uranus on Tuesday will offer innovative solutions, and a sextile from psychic Neptune early Wednesday morning will allow answers to emerge. On Wednesday afternoon, Venus will trine Saturn and the Moon will move into ingenious Aquarius. This is when the week’s bumpy road is transformed into newly paved asphalt.


Rather than being sources of friction, the Sun, Mercury and Mars will pave the way to bright ideas and friendly alliances, as the planets in air signs cooperate and collaborate. During this stint, the Moon will conjoin Saturn and Jupiter, as a positive and promising Sun Jupiter trine becomes exact on Friday. Setting the stage for a relaxing weekend, the Moon will then slip into mellow Pisces on Friday night. From here, the Moon is likely to let the noise from social invitations and engagements go to voicemail. There’s no disdain for sociable Libra initiatives; it’s just that the Sun, Mercury and Mars will be forming those out of sync quincunxes to the Moon all weekend. While Libra and Pisces share an infinity for fine art, crowds will feel brassy to sensitive Pisces, making quieter, more intimate settings preferable. That said, an amicable Mercury Venus sextile on Saturday night will add a cordial vibe to all gatherings, regardless of size. With that Sun Pluto square looming on Sunday morning, keeping affairs low key is a good option.


Pisces is the sign of completion and contemplation. The Moon has made another journey through the zodiac, and its inward pull for reflection is particularly pronounced this cycle. Jupiter will station and turn direct overnight on Sunday, as will Mercury on Monday. During the past three weeks who hasn’t replaced at least one appliance or electronic device? Thank you Mercury. In fairness, Libra-based-Mercury has probably also presented some intriguing insights. Back on June 20th, Jupiter had made it to two degrees of Pisces, before moving backward into electric Aquarius, where it has resided since. The planet of faith and philosophy will re-enter spiritual Pisces on December 28th and move beyond the shadow zone of this retrograde on January 8, 2022. Whether plotting the application of Jupiter to the remainder of its Aquarius transit or imagining the possibilities for its Pisces sojourn, there’s a little more time for deliberation.

Forecast Sep 27 – Oct 10, 2021: Here Comes The Judge

While astrology’s mischief maker Mercury is retrograde, Pluto and Saturn are about to turn direct, the Moon will launch a new phase in a cardinal sign and Venus will change signs. Events get underway on October 6th, when a new Libra Moon coincides with powerful Pluto emerging from its six-month slumber. Since April 27th, its transfiguring force has been applied to the late degrees of Capricorn. Pluto explores shadowy worlds, and Cap is the sign of institutions, governments and big business. Emerging under the Sun sign of deliberation and justice, and notably on its new Moon, Pluto is probably packing quite the drop. This new Moon may bring significant news from the U.S. Department of Justice or from major global health organizations. After spending the past month in Pluto-ruled Scorpio, Venus will also surface from a dark night of the soul, on the 7th. For the next four weeks, she will transit philosophical and politically-oriented Sagittarius. The mutable fire sign is astrology’s hub of international travel, foreign affairs and morality. Finally, Saturn will station and turn direct on October 10th. The ringed planet enforces boundaries and laws, and since late May it has also been in review mode. Like Pluto, its stance will shift from fact-finding to implementation. On the sunny side, Saturn provides structure and imposes order. Its dark side however, has a distinctly authoritarian streak. This retrograde has taken it all the way back to seven degrees of humanitarian Aquarius. The fixed air sign is highly compatible with fellow air sign Libra, where the Sun, new Moon, Mars and Mercury are traveling, and with Sagittarius, where Venus is headed. Also, Saturn is currently sharing that Aquarian sector with generally benevolent Jupiter. Initiatives undertaken at the waxing phase of this lunar cycle have a strong probability of yielding positive outcomes, particularly in the long run. Further, retrograding Mercury in Libra and Jupiter in Aquarius will station and go direct on the 18th, two days before the Moon is full. In short, as the Sun, Mercury and Mars inhabit the sign of fairness and liberty, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto will conclude introspective and investigative phases.


Over the coming weeks, the usual inconveniences associated with Mercury’s retrogrades will invariably show up. Beneath the surface, however, crafty Mercury may turn out to be on a far more consequential mission. This is the planet named after the god, who, to get business done, consorts with thieves, rogues and all manner of outcasts. As he goes deeper undercover, the bevy of planets coming off of the sidelines are lighting up the high and like minded sectors of Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius. Since at least late April, conflicting narratives have completed for dominance. On one side lay the imposters, liars and grifters, and on the other, the noble and forthright. The Sun is now shining from impartial, judicious Libra, and verdicts are about to be rendered.
