Weekly Astrology Forecast: Nov 9 through Nov 15– Sharing and Caring

Weekly Forecast(Astrology Explored) Astrology for the week of November 9 to November 15

This the final week before the next Solar Eclipse, a kind of a wrap up of the previous six months. The moon moves from Virgo, to Libra, to Scorpio through this week, touching on material concerns, relationships and money, and other people’s resources. It is this week where we find ourselves depending on others instead of our individual selves, when we recognize that we are stronger as part of group than as a lone wolf. Venus in the relationship sign of Libra, urges you, if you feel you walk alone, to immerse yourself in activities that involving the sharing of yourself. Helping others will benefit in more ways than you know. Even before the holidays begin this is the time for sharing and caring.

Aries—The planet of individuality, Uranus, has recently moved into your sign. Have you noticed that your life is more erratic of late, that things keep cropping up that place more obstacles in your life? Aries is never afraid of a challenge, but this is a horse of different color. The problem is that you are unable or unwilling to recognize that your sense of independence runs counter to what is expected of you. Continue reading

Weekly Astrology Forecast: The Drumbeat of the Heavens

drumbeatsAstrology for the Week of March 12 through March 18

Astrologers have been going on about the Cardinal Grand Cross that appears on and off in the heaven through out this coming year but especially prominent this coming summer for a variety of good reasons. The very nature of the Cardinal mode of expression demands that action be taken. That it is locked into energy that places the planets in challenge and at odds with each other suggest situations that threaten to explode with pent up energy. Since Pluto in the zodiac sign of Capricorn is involved this suggests a nuclear process, a chain reaction of events that shake the very foundation of our lives and our souls. It is all heady and dramatic stuff, the material that dire predictions are made of. Considering the wide world we live in no doubt that some of it will come true.

But this astrologer is more concerned with the Cardinal T-Square in the heavens, locking Pluto the planet of transformation, Saturn the planet of duties and responsibilities in the relationship oriented zodiac sign of Libra and now Venus, the planet of romantic love, in the dreamy zodiac sign of Pisces.

There is an assortment of planets that follow Venus in the sky right now, so even as Venus moves out of the tension aspect to Saturn, another planet will follow in its place, a sort of “boom, boom, boom” that highlights yet another aspect of the challenge of transforming our ideas about relationships, which I believe is the real theme of this year. Forget about the financial crisis, two wars on two different fronts, the mounting national debt, record unemployment and all the rest. What really occupies our attention is our relationships.

Venus in the primary slot right now has us focusing on our desire natures. This can take a variety of forms, from secret love affairs to ignoring our relationships in favor of money earning opportunities. Something has got to give, and with Pluto involved, most likely it is your resolve.

Around the middle of next week Mercury moves into position and either communications opens like a dam or clams up. The issues are forced upon you and cannot be ignored.

Maybe the Universe is giving us some time to recover because the next step is in the middle of June, when we are hit with a double whammy of Uranus joining Jupiter. Saturn temporarily slips back into the zodiac sign of Virgo, which is looking for perfection and actively involved in the T-Square finds it lacking. Uranus wants freedom and Jupiter the planet of expansion eggs him on. Things aren’t perfect, fine! Let’s motor on Uranus says, “I’m too good for you anyway!” But again Pluto trumps all odds and you are drawn back to examine what went wrong.

“Boom, boom, boom.” Do you hear it? It’s the drumbeat of the heavens.

Aries—Sometimes Aries, you don’t see the forest for the trees. Loving good times are possible if you stop resisting the things you have to do to make a relationship work. If you do, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how it will all work out.

Taurus—Overdoing physical activity could stress your bones and possibly even your spine. The Universe is calling on you to rest, so do it, for heaven’s sake!

Gemini—You are feeling especially flirty caught as you are between a playful Venus in Aries and an amorous Mars in Leo. Take aim carefully with your witty barbs, Gem, because you might land in the sights of someone who is far more serious (and skilled) in the games of love than you are.

Cancer—I don’t know whether to feel sorry for you, or slap you upside the head. You are feeling especially cranky because you want some thing you think you can’t have. Maybe if you talk about with someone, you find a different perspective.

Leo—Won’t do much sense to tell you anything right now Leo, since it is full steam ahead, whether or not you have a full load of fuel. Do chill down for the weekend though, as there are likely to be tricky relationship waters to navigate then.

Virgo—You should be used to this by now. People are flaking out on you again. Nagging will only make it worse, so maybe you should consider telling people how that makes you feel rather than pointing out how badly they have failed you. Might work.

Libra—You are the sensible one in the relationship right now, but demanding that someone buckle into harness with you isn’t going to work. Try giving some lead to the lease of your relationship needs. As they say, “If you love something, set it free.”

Scorpio—Cut the “I only fall for people who are unavailable” nonsense. How many times do you need to spin your wheels on that one? Instead create a vision of the loving relationship you desire and hold it as a hologram in your heart. Until then, same old, same old.

Sagittarius—“To hot to handle” is your theme song this week. Everything is rock and roll. Finally.

Capricorn–When fireworks fly in the relationship department you are caught seriously off guard. The love of adventure calls out to your sweetie, and if you aren’t there to share in the fun, you could find yourself on the outside looking in. Make some time to share some time if you want to avoid this.

Aquarius—With Mars direct in your opposite sign, there are sure to be some fireworks, some of it in the workplace. Its not all bad though, if you take some time to shower some attention on that someone special. Then some fireworks of the more pleasant variety can be showered on you.

Pisces—You’re a butterfly, Pisces and as beautiful as you are, you demand in your oh so sweet way to take you as your are. However, other people want to see a little more substance to your protestations of love, so give already!

Weekly Astrology Forecast: Don’t Get a Hair Cut

wtfAstrology for the Week of February 26 to March 4, 2010

With Venus, the planet of money, beauty and love coming to sit with Uranus in tension aspect to the planet of burdens, Saturn, in the sky there are a few things I wouldn’t do. First I wouldn’t invest in the “next big thing’ or anything risky. I wouldn’t start an affair with that enticing person at the office. And I wouldn’t get a haircut.

Venus is a multi-tasker all right, because she once was Ishtar, the Babylonian great goddess who had many more roles. She shed some of them to become more copasetic with the patriarchal Greek Pantheon. It doesn’t do to have a goddess of love whose hands get bloody from time to time fighting a war.

But right now that could happen, because Venus hates to be restricted, and Saturn wants to do just that. Saturn is in the relationship oriented sign of Libra and is he ever hot on the trail of nailing paartnerships down. With a Yod forming between Saturn, Neptune and Mars we are tempted to go overboard in every direction, we are feeling that somehow “fate” or “destiny” is playing a hand in our lives and we are tempted to do things for purely selfish motives. So when we examine our partners and find them wanting and when we look at other people and find them irresistible we are only trying to satisfy desires that are best left in the closet.

Aries—You are caught in a situation that you can’t resolve directly. You must get your head out of thinking that you can fix things through brute action. Examine your motives.

Taurus—Other people’s needs are more important than your own, and secretly you are annoyed that they are. Try a little tenderness.

Gemini—You are feeling off your game as everyone around you seem to have their head in the clouds, or up the bottom part of their anatomy, depending on your viewpoint. Don’t expect direct answers right now.

Cancer—Issues from the past loom large. You have a tendency to look backward rather than forwards, and scurry sideways to avoid sticky issues. Avoidance is a survival tactic, especially for prickly Crabs, but is this really going to help you in the long run?

Leo—Alliances made now will have far reaching consequences into the future. Be careful what you wish for.

Virgo—You ability to focus on the details is a blessing sometimes and a curse others. Thin on this latter this week and try not to sweat them.

Libra—Either you or your partner is trying to force a partnership issue. Libra won’t start a fight but you will finish it. Try to consider the long range consequences before you do so.

Scorpio—You rock, Scorp and this week you get the recognition you so richly deserve. Try not to shy away from the light!

Sagittarius—Relationships with significant others are strained from issues revolving around what you should be doing as opposed to what you want to do. Does this sound familiar?

Capricorn—From time to time Capricorn, you are critical of other’s efforts. You? Yes, Capricorn and this time is one of those times. Chill.

Aquarius—Other people are talking at you, but you can’t hear a word they are saying. Put your listening ears on, for heaven’s sake.

Pisces—Feeling like the world revolves around you? Well, heck Pisces, it sure is. Make the most of opportunities now, because the brass ring is only comes around once this year.

Weekly Astrology Forecast: We Don’t Always Get What We Want, Part 2

searchingAries—Hanging on to old relationships of any type is going to hinder rather than help you. If you have a hankering to dial up your ex after a night of soul searching via the help of the local pub, think twice about it, if you can. Unfortunately learning that the grass was greener on the pasture you just left is a part of life.

Taurus–Many planets in the sign of Aquarius means for the security conscious bull that there are likely to be a few surprises in store for you. Fortunately lucky Jupiter in friendly aspect to your Sun means that these surprises are great opportunities in disguise. Loosen up and explore the possibilities.

Gemini—The free thinking energies of four planets in Aquarius are your cup of tea, inspiring you to strike out on new adventures. Don’t forget the loved ones at home or the baby in the car seat. There are some things you do need to take care of.

Cancer—The weekend has you nesting at home, but soon you are forced to peek out on the wide world. As much as you’d like to hide out in your cave, you must pay attention to two areas of your life, your work and responsibilities and your romantic relationships. Time to stop hibernating.

Leo—You will see a change in your finances and unfortunately not in the way you expect. Now is not the time to spend money or make risky investments. Your best investment this week is planning a hot Valentine’s surprise for your sweetie.

Virgo—Usually steady and reliable, you find things are slipping out of your control. Jupiter, king of the gods, is opposite your Sun sign, demanding that you pay attention to developing a deeper sense of responsibility to the wider community. It is not enough to recycle those cans and bottles; you have to recycle your attitude as well.

Libra—Sprightly Libra hardly knows what it means to do the heavy lifting in relationships. The idea that a relationship requires work is a foreign one to you. However, with Saturn sitting in your sign and with a challenge coming from the planet of transformation you are beginning to learn the meaning of the phrase “turnabout is fair play.” Secretly your friends think you are getting what you deserve, so don’t count on much sympathy.

Scorpio—You have such a strong need to kick ass right now I worry about you Scorp. Carry a big stick if you must, but use it only in extreme emergencies. Find the nearest Chocolatier and load up on that medicinal chocolate.

Sagittarius—Though the spotlight is off you, and you feel the chill of the Universe not paying attention to you this week, don’t fret. Think of this as a breather before the next rounds of tasks required of you.

Capricorn—No one is better at crafting a strategy than you, Capricorn, and you spend this week plotting your next move. The glitter of Jupiter in the friendly sign of Pisces lends a type of magical sparkle to your desires. Remember that all that glitters is not gold.

Aquarius—A secret desire wrecks your head and your sleep. Though things seem slow in manifesting don’t worry. You’ll get to know the meaning of the phrase “be careful of what you wish for” soon enough.

For more on the planetary influences of the coming week, check out yesterday’s post: You Can’t Always Get What You Want, Part 1.

Pisces—Destiny seems to play a hand as a new relationship steps into your life. Now, I’m not saying that this is the love of your life. Maybe it’s a new BBF, or a co-worker with a great network of new people to meet. However, whoever it is will have a significant and welcome impact on your life.
