Forecast July 26-Aug 1, 2021: Travel Advisory

“Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.”

Airplane

When readying ourselves for the coming week’s journey, packing generous amounts of humor, patience and perhaps even some old school technologies is advised. Though the week will take off under the disarming guidance of a gentle Pisces Moon, we’ll begin experiencing turbulence as soon as Mercury moves into lusty Leo on Tuesday. In the fixed fire sign until August 11th, the Messenger is more opinionated than usual. When the aspects are favorable, like Wednesday’s trine from the Aries Moon or Sunday’s conjunction with the Leo Sun, warmth and charisma flow from a leonine Mercury. But, when placed amidst more challenging aspects, like Sunday’s opposition from stern Saturn, under a squaring Taurus Moon, well, the trickster could prove to be a most unruly passenger. While that Aries Moon is making friendly chatter with Mercury and the Sun on Wednesday, Jupiter will slide back into stimulating Aquarius. Unfortunately for everyone onboard, this sets up Thursday morning’s 29-degree, fixed sign battle royale between Mars in regal Leo and kingly Jupiter. When no one is willing to compromise, everyone loses. Six of the ten planets will be in the unyielding fixed signs when Mars and Jupiter duke it out. So flexibility, like ample legroom, will be scarce. If possible, fasten your seatbelt and wait until late Thursday afternoon when Mars heads into thoughtful, mutable Virgo. Once the feisty planet lands in the practical earth sign, calm and focus will be served. This transit will last until September 14th, making it an ideal time to tackle projects the require a tranquil mind and attention to detail.

“Does anyone know how to fly a plane?”

Airplane

Flight plans to land in a relaxing weekend will be scraped when the Moon enters Taurus on Friday afternoon and reactivate all of the week’s fixed sign friction. We’ll encounter the first bumpy patch on Saturday morning when the Moon squares Mercury, the Sun and Saturn. Meal service can briefly resume on Saturday afternoon when the Moon trines Venus. But those tray tables will have to return to their upright and locked position a few hours later, when the Moon and chaotic Uranus join forces. The commotion continues into Sunday when the Sun and Mercury get together first thing in the morning, in lively Leo. Ordinarily this would be a pure shot of enthusiasm, to uproariously celebrate something or other. Under current conditions however, it will more likely seem like the two planets knocking back too many Bloody Marys and proceeding to rile up fellow travelers. To restore order, Saturn will directly confront both. Only then, can we begin our final descent. Deplaned, and quite possibly disheveled, we’ll be grateful to claim even the most battered of luggage and exit the terminal. Surely, we’ve made it past the worst of 2021’s fixity.

“And don’t call me Shirley.”

Forecast Jul 12-18, 2021: Easy Does It

A Leo Moon fires up the week on Monday with conjunctions to Venus and Mars, who themselves link up on Tuesday. For sunny, determined Leo, these get-togethers bolster confidence and resolve. Of course, this position also places the Moon, Venus and Mars opposite Saturn and square to Uranus. That said, Mars and Venus moved through the crunch points of those challenges during the past two weeks. So lions are likely feeling much more playful than ferocious, as long as no one pulls any tails. Monday sets the stage for more conviviality when an early Cancer degree Mercury trines altruistic Jupiter in Pisces. Their amiable meeting is a preview of Thursday’s dreamy Sun trine to Neptune. Because Neptune is one of the slowest moving planets, we’ll be under the rejuvenating influence of this pairing all week long. After the turbulence of the past month, this dive into a psychedelic ocean will feel like welcome libation. Alluring and intoxicating and especially when combined, Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces can also prove wildly unrealistic. A sympathetic Moon in practical Virgo, from Tuesday through early Thursday, should steer us clear of any rocks. The week’s other source of bemusement comes courtesy of its multiple quincunxes.


Often confusing, sometimes confounding but rarely consternating, the quincunx produces astrology’s odd couples. A series of them will start on Monday, with Leo Moon quincunxes to Neptune and Pluto. Venus will echo the Moon’s moves, when it forms the same awkward angles to Neptune on Friday and Pluto on Sunday, and Mars and Neptune will follow suit on Sunday. Also on Sunday, Mercury and Saturn will find themselves in this befuddling aspect. Untangling them, an insightful, astute Scorpio Moon will favor Mercury and rebuff Saturn. Even so, in the wake of Saturday’s Sun Pluto opposition, the time may not yet be quite right for making the next bold move. After all, murky Neptune is deeply involved in many of the week’s happenings. On the other hand, a window of inspiration is certainly opening, beginning with the Mercury Jupiter trine on Monday. Next, Mercury’s trine to Neptune will be exact on July 24th. Add the trailing effect of Neptune’s aforementioned slow movement, and the next few weeks will be ripe with opportunities to delve into art, healing and spirituality. On July 28th Jupiter will step back into electric Aquarius, and on the 29th it will oppose Mars. At an incendiary 29 degrees, this face-off is likely to revive the tumult and turmoil of late. Between now and then, spending a couple of weeks leagues beneath the surface, or at least setting aside some playtime, is an appealing and possibly productive alternative. Pisces explores creativity through introspection and Leo through extroversion. Together, via the unfolding plethora of Pisces Leo quincunxes, they’re delivering the toy box that we’ve all been dying to get our paws on.

Forecast Jul 5-11, 2021: On The Edge

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


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

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

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


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

Forecast May 10-16, 2021: Watch The Water

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

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

Forecast May 3-9, 2021: Some Breathing Room

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

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

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

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

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

Forecast Apr 19-25, 2021: Spring Cleaning Or Clock Cleaning

This week personal planets the Sun, Mercury and Mars will move from extroverted yang to introspective yin signs. Their shifts will usher in a detectable change that will be felt through the first week of May. The Sun and Mercury will leave the ferocity of Aries and enter Taurus on Monday, and Mars will abandon the stimulation of Gemini and head into Cancer on Friday. Taurus is astrology’s fixed earth sign, and as such is revered for its endurance, tranquility and ability to bestow a sense of stability. However, with rebellious Uranus well into the sign’s second decant, 2021’s Taurus Sun cycle may be a little short on the Bull’s renowned placidity. This first week will give us a taste of the incoming month. Venus will conjoin Uranus on Thursday, followed by Mercury on late Friday. Then Venus will square Saturn late Saturday followed by Mercury on Sunday. Like two titanic tectonic plates, Saturn and Uranus are currently in a contentious square. Mercury and Venus will expose any fault lines that are creeping up to the surface. Then they’ll meet on Sunday afternoon, to compare notes, via a friendly conjunction. As the sign associated with roots and sustenance, Taurus shares its nourishing qualities with Cancer, the sign of home and motherhood that rules the stomach.

Mars will visit the cardinal water sign from April 23rd through June 11th. Hanging around the house is not the ideal spot for astrology’s planet of conquest, nor for anyone who’s sick of lockdowns and travel restrictions. But, with some forethought, we can positively apply the passionate planet’s ever ready energy supply to domestic life. This can take the form of anything from initiating home improvement projects, to planting spring gardens, to cooking the favorite dishes of loved ones, to house hunting. The caveat is that planet of war in Cancer is equally capable of agitating existing frustrations and stirring up family feuds. Unlike its cardinal cousin, direct Aries, moody Cancer is notorious for cloaking its aggression. The sign is also ruled by the Moon. Having a short list of mood altering options handy can make the critical difference between spring cleaning and clock cleaning. In the macro, Cancer is of course the Sun sign of the United States, so Mars may ratchet up domestic disputes. Whether it’s the border crisis, proposals to extend or end mortgage forbearance or food supply line disruptions, this tug of war between the resources of Taurus and Cancer caregiving will likely come to a head by May 11th. That’s when a new Taurus Moon will be accompanied by a Mars Uranus sextile. Taurus needs financial security and Cancer craves emotional safety. Under this cooperative alignment, their shared interests may produce constructive solutions. Then again, rambunctious Mars and unpredictable Uranus may prefer some chaos. Before then, we have a couple of weeks to unplug, relax and focus on self-care and simple pleasures.

Forecast Apr 12-18, 2021: Party Crashers

This week the Sun, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter will be behaving much like a crowd of rowdy spring breakers. Tactful Venus will step away from the ruckus when she heads into Taurus midweek, while Pluto prepares to crash a couple of the parties Aries is throwing. Like libations served to college students, the Aries sass and sauce will freely flow throughout the week. This one begins under an Aries Moon and concludes with a Sun Mercury conjunction, at a deafening 29 degrees on Sunday night. In between, the Aries Sun will sextile Mars on Tuesday and Jupiter on Thursday, Mars will trine Jupiter on Friday and Mercury will sextile Jupiter and Mars on Saturday. From spontaneous Aries, social Gemini and curious Aquarius, those four, along with the Aries and Gemini Moons, will heighten urges to get out, mingle and mix things up. Cranking up the volume, the Sun and Mercury are reaching the zenith of combustable Aries, while in the hardy later degrees of Gemini and Aquarius, inexhaustible Mars and exuberant Jupiter are raring to fan flames. Just as the party revs up into overdrive, eruptive Pluto will square the Aries Sun on Friday and Mercury on Saturday. That’s when Venus’ move into sensible Taurus will seem like the obvious choice for avoiding commotion. But the Saturn Uranus square looming in the background will belie Taurus’ reputation for simplicity.

Like stepping onto a tripwire, Venus, the money planet, will set off erratic Uranus. This week’s lunar transit through Taurus, from midday Monday into the wee hours of Thursday morning, may send some subtle but prescient signals from markets about incoming economic conditions. Immediately after this week’s Aries party, the Sun and newsy Mercury will follow Venus into the sign of raw materials, real estate and resources. A Taurus stellium will then cluster around global game-changer Uranus, as the Venus Uranus conjunction becomes exact on April 22nd. Further, on the 23rd, cantankerous Mars will leave convivial Gemini for the sign of food and shelter, Cancer. That transit lasts until June 11th, and leads right into the year’s second, and strongest, Saturn square to Uranus, at 13 degrees on June 14th. Since Saturn’s first square to Uranus in mid February, market disruptions have been strong yet spotty. For instance, international players like Credit Suisse and Japan’s Nomura Holdings have assured the public that financial damage from the Archegos debacle is fully contained and poses no systemic risk. Similarly, jingoistic US media emphatically praised the creation of 500K jobs in March. Yet hedge funds have admitted to taking a $6B hit from January’s Wall Street Bets crowd, the Archegos scandal caused a $20B stock selloff in late March, and every week since January, except one, over 700K Americans have filed new claims for unemployment. This April 14th-May 8th Venus Taurus transit may prove more akin to a canary in a coal mine than the running of a bull. For now, the Sun, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter are throwing one hell of a party, and sending Aries 2021 out with a bang.

Forecast Apr 5-11, 2021: Bubbling Up

This week begins with the Moon moving into Aquarius, and it ends with 2021’s new Moon in Aries. As most astrology enthusiasts know, Jupiter and Saturn are presently transiting inventive Aquarius. Those who keep an even closer watch are no doubt aware that the Sun, Mercury and Venus are currently in Aries and Mars is in Gemini. Aries is a fire sign and Aquarius and Gemini are air signs, and fire and air signs have positive polarity. This polarity is described as masculine, yang or outgoing and is shared by six of the twelve signs. When planets travel through signs of the same polarity, yin or yang, they can only create the agreeable conjunctions, trines and sextiles. For example, from Monday through Wednesday, that Aquarius Moon will conjoin Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius, trine Mars in Gemini and sextile Mercury, the Sun and Venus in Aries. Similarly, when the Moon enters Aries late Friday night, it will go on to conjoin Mercury, the Sun and Venus, and sextile Saturn, Mars and Jupiter. Incidentally, a Sun Moon conjunction is always the new Moon point, in this case 22 Aries 25. With the exception of the Moon’s Pisces visit from Wednesday through Friday night, all seven of the personal planets, as well as the Moon’s Nodes, will be in those exciting and excitable yang signs. And La Luna won’t be the only body activating impulses.

Venus will form friendly sextiles, to motivated Mars on Tuesday and generous Jupiter on Saturday, and a few hours later Mercury will sextile strict Saturn. While Saturn is often maligned for imposing rules, a heedless and headstrong Mercury (in Aires) may benefit from a yellow light. The week’s red lights are Friday’s Mars square to Neptune and Sunday’s Venus square to Pluto, following the new Moon. This mutable Mars Neptune conflict can manifest in something as simple as a GPS or ride share app failing on the way to a party or something as complicated as the eruption of serious arguments, with zero agreement on basic facts. The Venus and Pluto debacle looks like a knockdown, drag out about money. This battle can take place in personal space or in the political arena, including social media spats and street demonstrations. Either way, it could get ugly. See Saturday’s Mercury Saturn sextile, rinse and repeat. Thus, the best strategy for the week is to grab the gusto right out of the gate, from the visionary Aquarius Moon, and immediately apply it to pet and prized projects through Thursday. Leave wiggle room on Friday or take the day off, and get ready to set new Moon intentions for Sunday. Because Aries starts the astrological wheel, this new Moon sets the year’s tone. Additionally, at the robust 22 degree mark, this one is full of propulsion. Aiming it over that Venus Pluto wall is the best way to avoid the punches Aries is infamous for throwing. And during a week buzzing with electricity and itching for adventure, there’s ample inspiration to launch into the next great frontier.
