  • November 12th – 18th

    This week seems rather placid compared to some of the whipsaw weeks we’ve experienced in recent times. We are under the influence of the Scorpio New Moon that occurred last Friday. This New Moon influence has a Watery impact with a Grand Trine in the Water Element at the time of the New Moon when the Sun Moon conjunction trined Mars in Cancer and trined Uranus in Pisces. There is magic in the air, if we take the time to step out of our own way and be open to possibilities that may seem at best improbable.

    The major energy shift this week is Mars in Cancer turning retrograde.

  • November 5th -11th

    This week has its ups and downs. We may be put off by people who are grandstanding and we could find ourselves wondering what our lives are all about. We might consider shapeshifting, changing things about ourselves or looking at new areas for us to explore.

  • October 29th – November 4th

    This week ends October and begins November and is punctuated by two planetary direction changes. First Neptune then Mercury turns direct this week. With Mercury turning direct, we end our third and final Mercury retrograde of the year. Can we breathe a sigh of relief? To some degree we certainly can as Murphy’s Law of ‘whatever can go wrong will’ is put on hold until we come into 2008.

  • October 22nd – 28th

    This week has two Sign changes as the Sun exits Libra to enter Scorpio and Mercury retrograde exits Scorpio to enter Libra. In our social interactions, we may do the dance but we’re unlikely to reveal too much of ourselves.

  • October 15th – 21st

    We start this week possibly still smarting over any relationship issues that might have surfaced over this past weekend. Feeling more enthusiastic, thanks to Venus sextile Mars, Mercury sextile Venus and Mercury trine Mars, we can straighten out misunderstandings and heal any slights felt. We can laugh about miscommunications and see them as water over the dam.

    This week is far more placid than last week, more on an even keel, with less challenges and greater ease of expression.

  • October 8th – 14th

    This week turns up the energy with the Libra New Moon, Mercury turning retrograde for the third and final Mercury retrograde for this year and the third and final Jupiter square Uranus. The week also has Venus entering Virgo, Mars sextile Saturn, Sun sextile Jupiter, Sun trine Neptune and Venus conjunct Saturn.

    This week is highly active and starts off in a structured and methodical manner. Ah, yes, the well-laid plans of men can turn awry and we are certainly likely to see that with both the Jupiter square Uranus and the Mercury retrograde.

    We may find ourselves bordering on the over-optimistic, over-confident, willing to take risks without fully considering the possible consequences. We might also experience unexpected situations that throw our schedule out of whack.

  • October 1st – 7th

    The beginning of this week can have us doing a number of different things, juggling various activities. We can do it effectively, thanks to the Mercury sextile Saturn. We are able to focus on what needs to get done and accomplish our plans by the quickest and most effective means.

  • September 24th – 30th

    This week has the Aries Full Moon and two Sign changes. Our emotions are turned up and we may find that we’re balancing our personal needs and our interests in other people. The keyword is balance. Like a metronome, we can be overly involved in people’s issues and immersed in their emotional drama and then swing back to recharge our batteries and regain the sense of our own identity. The balance point is to enjoy other people’s company without losing our own sense of self.

  • September 17th – 23rd

    This week can be a roller coaster with significant ups and downs. Various Mars Pluto aspects can ramp up the energy with us trying to cover all bases only to cast aside some of our involvements. We begin the week with the Sun square Mars, mid-week Sun square Pluto and end the week with Mars opposed Pluto.

    We could easily get carried away by our personal ambitions, which could prove taxing on our relationships. We have to watch that we don’t draw lines in the sand, demand black and white scenarios without considering the gray matter, or become overly adamant in our opinions.

  • September 10th – 16th

    This week has the Virgo New Moon, a partial Solar Eclipse and a Grand Cross in the Mutable Signs. With seven planets in Mutable Signs at the time of the New Moon, we could be pushed and pulled in various directions during this next fortnight. Storm systems, whether climatic conditions or emotional dramas, can be strong and intense.

    While we are concentrating on our standing in our community, our work environment and our social circle, we might be thrown off center by the ratcheting up of our activities and involvements. We really have to consider whether we just have too much going on.
