Forecast Mar 30 – Apr 5, 2020: Making Progress

If variety is the spice of life, then we’re in for a saucy week. Personal planets Mars and Venus will make their way into progressive Aquarius and social Gemini, Mercury and Neptune will meet up in Pisces, and Jupiter will join forces with Pluto in ambitious Capricorn, adding further reverberations to January’s Saturn Pluto conjunction. On the one hand, the year’s established Capricorn and Pisces patterns are resurfacing. On the other, we are assuredly breaking new ground.

Appropriately enough, instigative Mars gets the week’s action underway. On Monday the red planet will move into offbeat, ingenious Aquarius. Unconventional methods, radical action and innovative strategies become the new normal when pushy Mars aligns with structuring Saturn in the eccentric air sign. Their conjunction takes place on Tuesday, and has implications far and wide. Mars will transit Aquarius through May 13th and Saturn until July 1st (and then from December 2020 through March 2023). Newly freed from red tape and regulations, Mars and Saturn will strut their scientific and technological stuff.

On Friday Venus will also move from an introspective earth sign to an outgoing air sign, when she heads into tech-savvy Gemini. Here, she’s highly compatible with Mars and Saturn in Aquarius, and in fact trines Saturn on Saturday. Her presence adds a little more wind to the astrological sails, and may provide a few hints about good long-term investments. However, Gemini is where this money planet is due for her next retrograde. I’ll cover that in depth next week, when Venus enters the retrograde’s shadow zone. Friday is also when Mercury meets Neptune in Pisces. In its highest expression, Pisces embodies the virtues of integral living. It grasps the big picture and moves through the world with endless empathy and compassion. In its lowest, its penchants for addiction, escapism and deception are ruinous. After spending much of its recent retrograde in Pisces, Mercury’s meeting with Neptune will feel very familiar. However, because the speedy planet never originally caught up to Neptune, this will actually be the first time that they meet this year. On Saturday Piscean dreams are met with the blunt force of a Jupiter Pluto conjunction in Capricorn

Keeping it real is Capricorn’s job, and favorite past time. The cardinal earth sign is also the realm of governments, institutions and banking. Jupiter expands and Pluto purifies and reforms. This conjunction is the first of three in 2020. The next one will take place on June 30th, when we’re emerging from the Venus retrograde, and the final one is on Nov 12th, following the US Presidential Election. During that time, various economic stimulus packages will have rolled out into the real world. Those future dates may indicate further iterations of these packages or more challenges to economic systems. Austere Capricorn, where the Jupiter Pluto conjunction takes place, is ruled by responsible, ringed Saturn. So, like most of 2020, we’re continuing to negotiate between boundless Pisces and Saturn’s limits. The week concludes under a practical Virgo moon. Big banks may ask what’s in your wallet. Virgo knows what’s in the pantry. Like Capricorn and Saturn, the mutable earth sign brings us right down to earth and into the here and now. Its clarity informs our plans and its calm our daily routines. From its serene, organized frame of mind, we take our next steps.

Forecast Mar 23-29, 2020: The Reset

Early Tuesday morning there is a new Moon in Aries. New moons occur each month when the Sun and Moon meet at the same point under the same zodiac sign. They present a time to reflect on the unique qualities of that sign and to set out intentions for the new cycle. Aries is astrology’s energizer bunny. Its boundless effervescence infuses us with enthusiasm, courage and motivation. With aggressive Mars as its ruling planet, the cardinal fire boldly initiates and asserts. Importantly, this is also the first new Moon of the new astrological year. While many will feel as if they are trapped in the malaise of coronavirus effects, others will recognize the special burst of vitality inherent in this new Moon. They will look at the changed landscape and find the new opportunities revealing themselves. Those people will find confirmation for their positive outlook and actions as the week progresses.

On Thursday the Moon moves into sturdy Taurus. Taurus is astrology’s fixed earth sign. Resources, finances and raw materials are within its abundant domain. The Taurus Moon will make constructive connections with the planets in endeavoring Capricorn. It will also receive boosts from Uranus and Venus, also presently in Taurus. While the Moon transits this sign, money planets Venus and Jupiter will form a very lucky trine late Friday night. On Saturday night Venus will forge the same positive alliance with powerful Pluto. That one takes place just minutes after a very friendly trine between the then Gemini Moon and Saturn, in futuristic, progress-oriented Aquarius. This Moon Saturn angle suggests agreement on ideas and scientific solutions. Finally, on Sunday Mercury moves beyond the shadow of its last retrograde. Mercury entered the shadow zone in early February, and the confusing, infiltrating energies of Pisces, where much of that retrograde was spent, have hugely influenced the COVID-19 story. Knowing about these fortunate, forthcoming aspects gives more meaning to Tuesday’s new Aries Moon. Winter is lifting its heavy cloak, the Pisces cycle is largely behind us, and the time for planting new seeds has arrived.

Forecast March 16-22, 2020: Turning Of The Tide

It’s not often that I describe weekly astrological happenings as blockbusters. But we’re definitely living through historic events, and this week is filled with important happenings in the sky. They include the Sun’s shift into invigorating Aries, Saturn’s move into innovative Aquarius and a Mars/Jupiter/Pluto collab in enterprising Capricorn. Throw in a couple of sextiles involving Uranus and Neptune, on the day Mars meets Pluto, and yes, it’s a big week. Unfortunately it begins with Mercury leaving the quick, clear thinking of scientific Aquarius and heading back into befuddling, muddling Pisces. Yuck! Happily, this is Mercury’s final pass through the mutable water sign, where the Messenger planet has spent nearly two months, including its recent retrograde. In cahoots with oceanic Neptune and a Pisces Sun, the waves of confusion emitted by this bunch have grown to titanic proportions. Thankfully, Mercury leaves Pisces for good on April 10th, and this week also starts with the moon moving into pragmatic, industrious Capricorn. That’s where a league of planets have been valiantly working to keep businesses open, workers employed or compensated when self-quarantining, medical systems operating and economies moving, despite the outbreak of a pandemic. The forces in Capricorn will prevail throughout the week via the moon’s occupation of Cap through Wednesday night and more significantly, via a powerhouse Mars, Jupiter and Saturn combo from Friday through Sunday.

While the Capricorn contingent is working to support infrastructure, the Sun will head into bold, enlivening Aries on Thursday, for a month-long-stay, and Saturn will venture into experimental Aquarius on Saturday, where it will be through early July. The “get her done” ethos of Aries will be the perfect antidote to Pisces paralysis. Aries motivates us to take action. Sometimes its independent and decisive tactics are viewed as inconsiderate or insensitive. But the blast of energy it brings to matters both clears fog and is well suited to Saturn’s foray into inquisitive, outlying Aquarius. Both Aries and Aquarius value freedom, and neither finds the approval of the herd necessary. After over a year of planets predominantly being in the yin water and earth signs, this week’s changes will bring a welcome breath of fresh cosmic air.

The week closes with Mercury sextiling Uranus, Venus sextiling Neptune and Mars combining forces with Pluto, under a Pisces moon. This looks like the expression of further iterations of the systemic issues that COVID-19 has begun unearthing. Translation, more government action will be taken to combat the virus and to stabilize economies and markets. So, while the week begins and ends with the familiar Pisces Capricorn mixture, noteworthy shifts by the Sun and Saturn prompt a push into new territory and towards scientific and technological solutions.

Sun Into Aries 2020: So It Begins

A big shift of the planets from earth to air signs and from water to fire is about to unfold.  This will break up a lot of the inertia that has surrounded the start of 2020.  it will also stimulate our desire for forward progress.  However, during this Sun cycle, Venus will enter the shadow of her coming retrograde, an aspect with big implications for the economy.  Equally significant, traditional Saturn will take its first steps into futuristic Aquarius.  When the Sun enters Aries, it marks the start of spring.  Serendipitously, the Venus and Saturn transits coming online during this Aries Sun cycle will be hallmarks of the entire season.

Leading the way, the Sun will move into boisterous, independent Aries on March 19th.  Like no other sign, Aries sparks irrepressible levels of enthusiasm, warmth and courage.  On March 21st, Saturn will venture into inventive Aquarius, followed by Mars on March 30th.  In experimental Aquarius, Aries ruler Mars, will find compatible energy for its expeditious impulses.  Next, Venus will enter sociable Gemini on April 3rd, and finally, Mercury will surface from its extended stay in shadowy Pisces and enter fast-acting Aries on April 10th.  If you’re counting, that’s the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Saturn moving from introspective yin to outgoing yang signs.  Normally, this would signal a collective move from the brakes to the gas pedals.  But, we’re living through some pretty extraordinary times.

Materialistic Venus is considered to be one of astrology’s money planets.  One of its homes is in fact in the fixed earth sign of Taurus.  In this regard, Venus is concerned with real assets, raw materials, financial markets and income.  Curious Gemini adores people.  Its appetite for news, pop culture, gadgets and trivia is nearly insatiable.  In the context of the forthcoming Venus retrograde in people-oriented Gemini, nationwide lockdowns, travel restrictions and the banning of communal events make perfect sense. They speak to negative social impacts and substantial economic challenges.  Allowing people to gather in public presents the threat of further disease spread, potentially collapsing medical systems, while imposing lockdowns stifles commerce.  Venus will enter the retrograde shadow zone on April 9th, be retrograde from May 13th to June 25th, and leave the retrograde shadow zone on July 29th.  The onset of the Venus retrograde period during the current Sun cycle accentuates the various dilemmas.  At one point in June, the Venus retrograde will coincide with those of Mercury, Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune and Pluto.  At the same time, the genius of Aquarius, with its humanitarian orientation, is about to be inhabited by astrology’s most stoic, disciplined and persevering planet, Saturn.  That transit will also initially be accompanied by a boost from action-taking Mars.

Saturn is the planet of endurance, time and limitations.  Aquarius is the sign of scientific, cultural and technological innovation.  Saturn’s upcoming and brief visit to Aquarius is a precursor to its two-year-stay in the fixed air sign. That will begin in late December and last until March of 2023.  In the short term, Saturn will be in Aquarius from March 21st through July 1st, before retrograding back into Capricorn.  Spring of 2020 will give us a sample of how the longer transit, from late 2020 to March 2023, might play out.  Of the many possibilities is clearly the immediate experimentation with treatments for COVID-19, such as hydroxychloroquine with zinc.  Later, perhaps when Saturn returns to Aquarius next winter, the more promising findings emerging now will undergo the riggers of formal study and clinical trial.  Another example of this structured humanitarianism is the recently announced UK budget that includes robust NIH funding, compensation for workers impacted by work stoppages, loans for small and medium sized businesses, and money for long-range rail, road and other infrastructure projects.  Applications of quantum computing are also likely to be put to practical use during the greater Saturn transit of Aquarius.  Spring 2020 will offer the first glimpses.

Forecast Feb 24-Mar 1, 2020: Work Zen

With the exception of Friday’s Venus square to Pluto, this week is abundant with harmonious connections between the planets. An easy-going Pisces moon conjunct Neptune gets the week started, inviting us to retreat, reflect and relax. If workweek deadlines are inescapable, a slew of Capricorn, Pisces and Taurus connections show us how to serenely complete our tasks. On Monday, the Pisces Sun sextiles inspiring Mars, while the moon forms the same productive angles to Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn, like Mars, in endeavoring Capricorn. On Tuesday the Sun and Mercury conjoin in Pisces, followed by Mercury and Mars forming their supportive sextile. Midweek the moon moves through explorative Aries, adding a boost to activity. But late Thursday night, it settles back down, this time into mellow Taurus. In the fixed earth sign it will activate wildcard Uranus, on Friday, the same day when Venus comes looking for a fight with Pluto. Retrograde Mercury in Pisces will sextile Uranus on Friday as well, a signal that any logic we’re basing decisions or arguments on, might indeed be faulty. This is the week’s hotspot for tensions to surface and battles to break out, seemingly out of nowhere. Taking that chillaxed Pisces/Taurus course, and avoiding contentious people and the trouble they’re itching to incite, is definitely the smoothest route as we head into the weekend. From Taurus, the moon will sextile the Sun, Mercury and Neptune and trine Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto, underscoring the message that the more we can step back, away from the fray this week, the more we’ll accomplish.

Sun Into Pisces 2020: Riding The Waves

You don’t need an astrologer to tell you that we’ve entered a time of heightened concerns, mounting uncertainty and potential economic pitfalls.  Pisces is renowned for its nebulous, meandering fog, and Mercury retrogrades are notorious for the miscommunications, technological snafus and vexing delays they bring.  The next Mercury retrograde, mostly in Pisces, gets underway on February 16th, and the Sun will enter Pisces on the 18th for a month-long-stay.  Adding a deeper dimension, and muddling matters up even more, unfathomable, oceanic Neptune is presently at home in Pisces.  Pisces is the sign of mystics, addicts and artists.  It’s fluid, not solid.  Its language is symbolic, not straightforward.  And its emphasis is on spiritual rather than material.  For a couple of weeks n March, Mercury will back into scientific Aquarius, where it will station direct on the 9th.  Overall however, these kaleidoscopic conditions will continue from now throughout March.  When the Sun heads into Pisces, the moon will be in Capricorn.  This may be a subtle indication that as the Sun, Mercury and Neptune stir waves of ambiguity, higher, drier ground is attainable in the sign of the mountain goat.

In addition to the moon’s presence, from February 18th-20th, motivated Mars will make its Capricorn entrance on February 16th.  In Capricorn, both will be in the capable company of Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto and the South Node.  Mars will remain in the ambitious and enterprising sign until March 30th, escorting us, not only into the Aries Sun cycle, but also through the end of the Mercury retrograde shadow period.  It will conjoin Jupiter on March 20th and Pluto on March 22nd.  Capricorn is the sign of institutions, systems and government, and stoic, sober Saturn is its ruler.  Mars and its Capricorn compatriots will be fighting to keep the economy on track, markets stable and business moving forward.  Interestingly enough, early in this unfolding Sun cycle, a substantial and favorable alignment takes place when Jupiter sextiles Neptune on February 20th.  This may be our best opportunity to combine Capricorn pragmatism with Pisces insight, to bring practical and creative solutions to pressing issues.  Back on January 12th, it was of course in Capricorn where Saturn and Pluto formed their exact conjunction.  Many astrologers would attribute that meeting to the current turmoil.  Dozens of cases of coronavirus, COVID-19, were certainly known to authorities then.  At any rate, we’re in the aftermath of the outbreak now, and successfully navigating the confusion is the task at hand.

On March 4th, when Mercury retrogrades back into Aquarius, Venus will move home to Taurus.  Taurus is astrology’s fixed earth sign.  As such, raw materials, real estate and financial markets are under its domain.  Venus will be in dependable Taurus until April 3rd.  From there it will make supportive trines to Jupiter and Pluto on March 27th and 28th.  While this will bring some stability to the equation, chaotic, global game-changer Uranus is also in Taurus.  The erratic gyrations of Uranus are ill-suited to the security-oriented sensibilities of astrology’s Bull.  Venus will conjoin Uranus on March 8th, the same day when the Sun and Neptune combine forces in Pisces, and one day ahead of the full moon and the conclusion of Mercury’s retrograde.  Translation, more than a few of the wheels may fall off the wagon around March 8th-9th.  Ride it out and see where things land.

Pisces completes astrology’s wheel.  It takes us right up to the start of the new astrological year, the Aries Sun cycle and the beginning of the spring season.  The problem in 2020 is that Q2, which encompasses most of that season, includes retrogrades of money-makers Venus and Jupiter, the aforementioned Saturn and Pluto, and Mercury (again).  In fact from June 17th-24th all five planets will be retrograde simultaneously.  Spring 2020 will also see the Nodes and eclipses shift from the Cancer/Capricorn axis to Gemini/Sagittarius. And perhaps most significantly, Saturn will leave the familiarity of industrious Capricorn for the experimental space of Aquarius, from March 21st-July 1st, all of Q2.  Astrology is lining up with the spread of,  confusion about and inevitable economic repercussions of COVID-19.

 In mid February, as I complete this article, I do not see the disease taking hold in the United States to any massive extent.  However, it is already clear that the supply chains of US companies/employers are and will continue to be effected, and we’re already seeing disruption in the travel industry and commodity prices.  Pisces tends to bring its seasonal perplexity, and this year that is definitely further complicated by Mercury’s long stay in Pisces (with the Rx).  The mutable water sign’s ability to permeate boundaries and infiltrate also speaks to the spread of this virus via water droplets.  Looking ahead, Q2 is when we can expect to see the wider consequences of the lost productivity and supply disruptions hit balance sheets, production lines and stock portfolios.  Domestically, that March 8-9th hot spot occurs very close to Super Tuesday, March 3rd.  This also means that Democratic primary voting is taking place during the retrograde.  In related news, the Presidential Election will occur on the final day of Mercury’s October/November retrograde.  For those of you old enough to remember the hanging chads of 2000, that election took place at the start of a Mercury retrograde.  Unfortunately, Pisces and Neptune (conjuct the Sun on March 8th) are infamous for deception. Recounts, tech malfunctions, suspicions about voting results and technology, and a rearrangement of the candidate field are the most likely outcomes for the March contests.  In short, these conditions indicate a contentious process and contested outcomes.

For now, the Sun is heading into Pisces.  One of this sign’s finest attributes is its limitless compassion.  That is a calming lens through which to see our world, current events and one another.

Forecast Feb 3-9, 2020: A Higher Calling

This week includes Mercury entering the zodiac’s twilight zone, Pisces, Venus emerging from the fog of Pisces and stepping into confident, assertive Aries and a full Leo moon. Pisces is ruled by Neptune, the borderless planet of infiltration, fantasy and illusion. Neptune is presently at home in Pisces. From its watery netherworlds, it is invisibly and indelibly disbursing and extending those artistic, mystical and meditative Pisces waves. For fast-moving, mental Mercury, any time spent in Pisces is like being a slow-motion, bad dream in which everyone is trying to convince you that VR is the real world. Mercury insists on the facts. Normally it speeds through a sign in about three weeks. Like last year however, this year Mercury will be in Pisces for the better part of two months. Pisces is astrology’s mutable water sign, and most of Mercury’s oncoming retrograde will be in Pisces. While Pisces fluidity can work well with Mercury’s adaptability, its vagueness can consternate analytical, technical Mercury. Successfully navigating the confusing and changing circumstances of the next two months will greatly depend on our ability to strike the right balance of their attributes.

Helping to clear our heads and to take decisive action will be Venus’s transit of Aries. Brash, bold Aries takes charge. This sign doesn’t sit around waiting for anyone or anything, and Venus will be in the cardinal fire sign until March 4th. Aries is not a comfortable place for the polite planet of beauty, pleasure and decorum. But Venus in Aries is an excellent aspect for asserting one’s needs, especially for those prone to indecision or over-giving. Adding to the willpower on tap, this week ends with a full moon in the fellow fire sign of Leo. Aries and Leo are both recognized for their natural and exceptional talents as leaders. In its highest expression, Pisces infuses us with compassion, spiritual principles and a holistic perspective. A good leader takes the opinions, concerns and aspirations of others into consideration, determines what needs to be done and acts. Aries and Leo possess remarkable courage, and above all, they are passionate go-getters. Could it be that we are now being called to be the leaders we want to see in our lives?

Forecast Jan 27 – Feb 2, 2020: Keep Calm, Stay Rational

When the week begins with a Venus Neptune conjunction in Pisces, under an intoxicating Pisces moon, and ends with Mercury venturing into the shadow zone of its next retrograde, one that will largely take place in Pisces, the cosmos is signaling that the world is about to go, well, cattywampus. And so it is as the first month of 2020 draws to a close. Neptune, the unstable planet of art, addiction and mysticism, indulges Venusian fantasies on Monday when the two meet in Pisces. If the dreamy notions they conjure up seem too good to be true, they probably are. On Tuesday Mars forms a challenging square to Neptune. Unfortunately, the bold and boisterous planet finds itself in Sagittarius, another sign prone to exaggeration. So the start of the week is the astrological equivalent of trying to make sense of an argument between a drunk and crackhead. Thankfully, on Wednesday, the moon heads into Aries, the no nonsense sign voted Least Likely To Tiptoe Through The Tulips. This should give us a dose of clarity while we also benefit from the foresight of Mercury transiting the late degrees of intellectual, detached Aquarius. We’ll find ourselves on even more solid ground late Friday when the Moon goes into earthy Taurus, where it will spend the weekend. That Moon will square the Aquarius Sun on Saturday, ahead of an overnight Venus sextile to Pluto, in pragmatic Capricorn. While these aspects are neither easy nor breezy, they offer needed sobriety and practicality. On Sunday Mercury enters the shadow zone of its oncoming retrograde. Whatever is left up in the air at this point is likely to only become more confusing in the ensuring weeks and to linger through the end of March. Ahead of the retrograde, now is the time to get our bearings and to strategically set a course, just not right off the bat this week.

Feb 2nd Mercury enters Rx zone
Feb 16th Mercury goes Rx
March 9th Mercury stations direct
March 29th Mercury exits Rx zone

Forecast Jan 20-26, 2020: New Altitude

The Sun is heading into lofty Aquarius on Monday, and on Friday we have a new Aquarius moon. Aquarius is astrology’s outlier. Detached and cerebral, Aquarius sees the shape of things to come. It adores science and technology and has a great capacity for revolutionary thinking. Mental Mercury is also visiting the fixed air sign, creating the potential for light bulb moments to strike lightening fast. On Saturday, even more firepower comes online when Mars forms a cooperative sextile to Mercury from optimistic Sagittarius. But the red planet will find itself squabbling with Venus on Sunday when the two form a square. Fortunately, both are in flexible mutable signs, so giving peace a chance just might make it so. In addition to the Sun sign change and new moon, the week’s other beneficial offering is a sextile between money-makers Venus and Jupiter on Thursday, under an enterprising Capricorn moon. All and all, this is a great week for furthering our efforts in the arenas that are already paying off and for looking into future potentials and improvements.

Sun Into Aquarius 2020: Let There Be Lightwork

Inventive, independent Aquarius is often credited with a visionary knack for tapping into the future and setting standards and trends. As an air sign, it emphasizes the intellect and the ability to detach, both from the irrationality of emotions and from group think. Those skills will come in handy for all of us as the Sun and Mercury journey through astrology’s eleventh sign early in 2020, because late in the year, Saturn and Jupiter will enter Aquarius for much longer transits. Jupiter will be in Aquarius from December 19, 2020 until December of 2021. Saturn will explore Aquarius from March 21st through July 1st this year, and then settle in for the long haul from December 17, 2020 until March of 2023. So, true to form and for the next month, astrology’s individualistic, offbeat outlier is taking us into the future, and it would be a good idea to take note. Supporting the big picture thinking, the Aquarius Sun cycle starts with Venus in intuitive Pisces and ends with Mercury’s first retrograde of the year, also in Pisces.

Also appreciated for its capacity to give perspective, the mutable water sign of Pisces informs us through the languages of spirituality, subjectivity and art. The genius of Aquarius draws its conclusions quite differently than Pisces. But the co-mingling of planets in both of these signs during this time can produce uncanny and astonishing foresight. Venus will be in Pisces until February 7th, and Mercury will leave Aquarius for Pisces on February 3rd. Mercury is the planet that influences our thinking and communication, and it will spend an unusually long two months in Pisces, with the exception of a revisit to Aquarius from March 4th through 16th during its retrograde. That retrograde officially runs from February 16th through March 9th, but its shadow period extends from February 2nd through March 29th. The key to having a productive Mercury retrograde, especially one in spacey Pisces, lies in our ability to set clear, coherent intentions at the outset and to maintain laser focus on them for the duration.

Fortunately, astrology’s packing a sizable “get real” punch these days. Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto and the South Node are in Capricorn, and on February 16th Mars joins them. Capricorn is the cardinal earth sign, so it is particularly adept at both keeping us off the couch and at seeing that tangible results come from earnest efforts. The planets have been concentrated in the Saturn-ruled sign for months, and Saturn’s recent conjunction with Pluto imprinted 2020 with Capricorn’s seriousness. Mars is the planet of action, and its presence will further the industrious drive of Cap. It stirs our passions and its “get ‘er done” ethos is well matched to the inherent initiative taking of enterprising Capricorn. Mars will be in Cap until March 30th, kicking us in the pants throughout Mercury’s retrograde and shadow exit period. In combination, the Sun and Mercury in Aquarius instill vision, Venus and Mercury in Pisces expand our creativity and add a holistic view and Mars in Cap will add the needed push to get real stuff done. The final ingredient to this cosmic cocktail is earth-shaking Uranus.

As well as staying focused on our goals, we’ll also need to be alert to hunches, reports and opportunities we receive about shifts in the collective that will have personal implications for the years ahead. Obviously the relevance of news is unique to each of our circumstances. But “a-ha” moments will abound, and they need to be noticed. Besides the Sun and Mercury visiting Aquarius, its ruler Uranus is early into its seven-year-transit of Taurus, astrology’s fixed earth sign. Uranus is astrology’s favorite disrupter. It is a global force that brings shocks, sudden change, revolution, breakthroughs and often a lot of chaos in the process. Whether its crypto-currency in finance, vegetable-based protein in food, workers’ rights in the gig economy or renewable and alternative forms of energy, Aquarius and Uranus point to innovation. It’s important that we pay attention to oncoming changes and that we adapt accordingly, the earlier the better. In short, the dance beginning now essentially guides us through the remainder of the winter before depositing us into early spring and start of Q2 2020. Q2, featuring the onset of multiple retrogrades, including those of Venus and Jupiter, will have a very different timbre than Q1. Now is the time to bring the year’s goals and aspirations into focus.
