Category Archives: This Week

  • 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.

  • September 3rd – 9th

    This week is incredibly active, and the shifts in energy this week can be explosive. No going quietly into the night for us. Rather, this week can have us feeling intense and champing at the bit. People may become hypercritical, looking at the half glass of water as half empty rather than half full.

  • August 27th – September 2nd

    This week is lit up by the Pisces Full Moon. With a Grand Cross in the Mutable Signs as the Pisces Moon opposes the Virgo Sun, squares Jupiter in Sagittarius and squares Mars in Gemini; this week could have us all over the place. Our emotions could go through a real whipsaw, up and down. We may feel buffeted by circumstance.

    At the time of the Full Moon, Mercury opposes Uranus, both in Mutable Signs. While we could get some startling insights, even ‘Eureka’ moments of solving problems long plaguing us, things are moving very quickly and we need to be nimble and quick to take advantage of sudden opportunities and to deal with unexpected situations.

    The pace is accelerating rapidly and we need to pick up our pace to a sprint. We may feel on overdrive this week, having more on our plate than we intended.

  • August 20th – 26th

    This week could have us feeling antsy. The sense of Summer drawing to a close may be poignant as we feel the weight of our responsibilities bearing down on us.

    We may start the week feeling frustrated. Some of our greatest plans might seem thwarted. The Sun conjuncts Saturn. Our recent drive and passion can seem like idle musings as past issues and usual obligations start to call.

    Although the Sun moves into Virgo beckoning us back to our normal routine, we are unwilling to let Summer pass.

  • August 13th – 19th

    We could have some difficulty getting our bearings as we start this week. We need to be careful that we don’t rush headlong into anything until we are certain as to where we are going.

  • August 6h – 12th

    This week is an active week with Jupiter turning direct, two planetary Sign changes and the Leo New Moon to end the weekend.

    We may feel more determined to follow our bliss. Not everyone might applaud our passion and devotion. Someone could see us as self-centered and inconsiderate. While relationships can be a little testy this week, we have the ability to virtually move mountains.
