Forecast Jun 24-30, 2019: Straight From The Heart

Mercury enters Leo for a long summer stay.

The phrase “as one door closes another one opens” is apt for a week that will offer up a cosmic quest that we’ll be wrestling with until late August. The Pisces moon always signals closure, and the 24th’s Venus square to Neptune is the last of the long series of mutable squares we’ve endured since late May. During that time, things crashed and things burned. This final square sweeps away any remaining debris. Next, the moon will of course move into motivational Aries, the enlivening fire sign of ignition and initiation. From there those proverbial doors begin opening. It’s under this Aries moon that the Messenger of the Gods, Mercury, moves into the fellow fire sign of Leo. Normally, speedy Mercury enjoys racing around the zodiac. It fills the airwaves, our heads and conversations with the ideas associated with each sign, and quickly moves on. But it’s next retrograde from Leo back into Cancer will have us (re)-examining our concepts about all things leonine.

On the lighter side, stylish and lavish Leo can be linked to vanity and appearance (those manes) and frivolity and extravagance (those parties). But something deeper fuels those regal flames. Being a fixed sign, Leo is loyal. Its home is the 5th House, so it is innately and highly creative. And signified by the lion, it is the sign of courage, leadership and even royalty. Mercury’s prolonged stay, which includes two tours of Leo, may just be signaling that it’s time to search our hearts for the heroes we strive to be in the world. What are we standing for? What are our values? How do we fight for what we want with love and dignity? In its highest expression, Leo exudes unparalleled generosity and magnanimity. It is the Lion King. When fleet-footed Mercury enters the lion’s den this week, it might just be instigating a much bigger and broader conversation. Of course the upcoming retrograde will take Mercury back into watery, cardinal Cancer. So high-minded ideals will have their sea-worthiness tested when feelings get real. Balancing raw emotions and virtue is a challenging, noble and worthy quest. Mercury will visit Leo from June 26th-July 19 and then from August 11-29th. Best look? A true heart overflowing with valor

Clearing The Last Mutable Hurdle

Since late May it’s been one mutable square after the next, and on Saturday, the 22nd of June, the final stage gets underway. Though more subtle than cardinal and fixed squares, mutable squares nonetheless leave their indelible mark. They are here to clear out what we no longer need and to prepare us for our next big steps. Under an emotional Pisces moon, one that will conjoin oceanic Neptune, we are likely to deeply feel and grieve current losses. That Pisces is astrology’s last sign adds to the sense of finality. This last phase of this nearly month-long process ends with a Venus square to Neptune on the 24th, just a few days into the start of summer. So, if things have been falling apart and away for the past three weeks, there is a reason. Trust that your Soul knows your course, and that soon the puzzle pieces that have been so elusive will soon begin falling into place, finally! Best look? Faith, trust in God and inner peace

Forecast Jun 17-23, 2019: Wrapping Things Up

Have a reading at Elizabeth’s Oracle

From a t-square full moon to summer solstice, this week is big. Things get underway in the shadow of a major square between Jupiter and Neptune from the 16th, leading into a 25-degree full Sagittarius moon early Monday morning. The planets are putting the pressure on all of us to release, make changes or let something important go. Tuesday and Wednesday will see the moon make significant and supportive connections with all three outer planets and Saturn, while Mercury and Mars meet in nurturing Cancer. The shift from mutable to cardinal alignments is telling us that new beginnings are emerging. By Friday we may be feeling festive and ready to partake in Solstice celebrations. But, with one more mutable t-square set to start on the 22nd, we may reach the end of the week with still more details needing to be ironed out. Things are being sorted out. Hang in there and keep your courage handy.

Here It Comes

Mercury set to square Neptune and oppose Jupiter

Well, if the Pisces moon we had early in the week didn’t sound any intuitive alarms, informative Mercury is about to turn up the volume.  On Wednesday, the 29th, it squares gargantuan Neptune and on Thursday, the 30th, it opposes larger-than-life Jupiter.  These aspects occur under the blunt and direct force of an Aries moon.  Examining, and where necessary, curbing our excesses is a key topic throughout the current Gemini Sun cycle.  This week the winged Messenger of the Gods is giving us a taste of what’s about to unfurl.  This Gemini solar run features the year’s next Jupiter Neptune square, the day before a Sagittarius full moon, as well as the pressure of a multitude of mutable t-squares.  Jupiter, in its lower expression, is the would-be-king who is full of hot air, and Neptune, at its worst, presides over oceans of self-delusion and next level checking out.  If we’re living beyond our means, engaging in costly addictions and distractions or simply failing to get our act together, Mercury is about drop some truth on us.  One of the more valuable traits of the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces) is their adaptability.  Nimble and flexible, they know when to let go and when to change plans.  If we can make the appropriate decisions and adjustments this week, we’re in for a much smoother ride over the coming weeks, and months.  Remember, Mars is on course for confrontations with Saturn and Pluto in June and reality-checking Saturn, the ringed planet of limitations, is on track for a friendly connection to Neptune mid-month.  If we let Mercury help us clarify our priorities now, austere Saturn will be along shortly to reward our focused efforts.  So, get mindful and be prepared to move like a Ninja.

Forecast May 27-June 2, 2019: The Fortuitous Pisces Moon

Pisces Moon

The week starts with a fortuitous Pisces moon, which, in its inimitable way, is showing us both the challenges and strengths unfolding in the current Gemini Sun cycle. On Monday alone, this Pisces moon will square Mercury and Jupiter, conjoin Neptune and sextile Venus, Saturn and Pluto. Later in the week Mercury, home in Gemini, will square Neptune and oppose Jupiter, and Venus, home in Taurus, will sextile Neptune before trining Saturn on Friday and powerful Pluto on Sunday. The intuitive Pisces moon that begins the week is acting like our internal early detection system, psychically scanning our fields for raw intel. Informed by the spiritual data, we can navigate the inbound turbulence and get well-positioned for the week’s extra bountiful aspects. A few quincunx aspects will throw some wonkiness our way. But for groovy Pisces, the weirder the better. Be sure to tune into the cosmic messages downloading on Monday and Tuesday. They are offering the vision that can guide us to soul-level riches far beyond the present week.


Neptune Trine The North Node: Time For Reflection

Behind the busy scenes of the Sun and Mercury jumping into chatty Gemini, a much subtler and more impactful aspect is taking shape. Neptune in Pisces creates a supportive trine to the North Node in Cancer late Tuesday night. This connection gives us both some relief from the ongoing and more direct Pluto and Saturn oppositions to the North Node and the ability to gently release what is no longer needed, Unlike the fast-paced inner planet transits, the influence of this trine lasts for at least two to three weeks, if not months, on either side of its exact connection point. Gently dissolving hard lines to facilitate the soul’s growth is what you may be experiencing internally. So, while the world outside might get carried away with Gemini chatter, you may be guided to unplug and spend some alone time. Meditating on your life’s next big steps is being supported by the spiritual and agreeable combination of Neptune and the North Node.
