The Planets This Week: March 5, 2018

What do the planets have in store for us this week? On the heels of the recent Virgo Full Moon we have communication planet Mercury and love planet Venus both moving into Aries. While Mercury is in Aries your mind could be functioning at top speed and in short bursts of activity. You might not have a lot of patience to focus on one idea for too long, instead burning through one thought quickly and moving on to the next. Instead of weighing all the pros and cons of a situation, you may tend to make snap judgments based more on instinct than logic.

While Venus is in Aries your love life could be quite exciting! You might find yourself being bolder than usual, taking risks and acting on your ardent impulses. Romance can be steamy and you’re open to experimentation — just watch out for getting carried away by your passions and be sure to take care of yourself. If you’re single, this is an ideal transit for initiating new relationships, and you’ve got the confidence to go after what you want.

Also this week, Jupiter turns retrograde in Scorpio so we can expect scandals! We may find con artists come out to play and take advantage of the good will and weakness of others. Political, religious, or investment scandals are likely. During this time we may discover what is hidden. The desire to know will fuel an increase in investigative journalism and advances in science, especially medicine. Jupiter brings luck in trying to discover what is hidden. There will be more respect for investigative journalism. Jupiter gives luck, and Scorpio reveals what is not known. New advances or discoveries may lead to finding the cause or cure of illnesses we currently dread.

The Signs

There are twelve signs in the Zodiac, one for each month of the year. Unfortunately, the signs and the calendar don’t align perfectly. The Zodiac begins in mid-March, not on January first; and signs span from roughly the 20th or 21st of one month to the 19th or 20th of the next, not the 1st to the 31st. (Are you confused yet? No? Good!)

When someone asks you what your sign is, they’re referring to your Sun Sign — where the sun was in the Zodiac at the exact moment of your birth. But every other planet in your birth chart is also located in a particular sign, and is influenced by that sign’s unique energy.

This explains why everyone who’s born under the influence of the same Sun Sign can still have such vastly different personalities; each of us is made up of a complex and unique combination of influences from the twelve signs, the twelve houses and all the planets, asteroids and points… Now, that’s definitely getting complicated!

Each sign of the Zodiac is associated with a particular symbol, usually an animal, like the Ram (Aries) or the Bull (Taurus); an element, such as Air (Gemini) or Water (Cancer); and a quality, such as Fixed (Leo) or Mutable (Virgo).

What about if you were born on a cusp? A cusp is that mysterious boundary between one Zodiac sign and the next. When the Sun, or any planet, changes signs, it shifts the energies from one to the other. If you were born on the cusp of two signs, you may feel like you embody characteristics of both, but the actual sign you were born under is your true, natural sign.

What do the planets have in store this week? The astro headline is the Sun moving in Pisces where it will be until March 20th. This show is dedicated to all you Pisces. This show will be all about your sign! Pisces is symbolized by the Fish, those two little creatures whose scales glint in the sun as they follow where the stream takes them. And just as that stream can symbolize the subconscious mind or the winding path of life itself, Pisces is like those fish, swimming along in the currents, taking what comes and throwing off rainbows as it goes.

A Mutable Water Sign, fanciful Pisces knows exactly how to go with the flow. This sign is perfectly happy following someone else’s lead, especially if it’s the lead of a trusted loved one. Pisces is a highly romantic sign, one that tunes in on an intuitive, almost psychic level to its friends and lovers, intuiting their emotional needs and doing what it can to meet them. This is the sign that brings home stray puppies because it can’t bear to see them left alone and hungry, which is a wonderful quality…but one that can get Pisces into trouble from time to time.

Ruled by Neptune, the planet of illusion, this sign thrives on fantasy and imagination, and easily slips into savior fantasies. Pisces can be a champion of lost causes, because its inherent idealism blinds it to the fact that some people and situations just can’t be saved. On the other hand, that love of fantasy can make for a very imaginative friend and lover (and some overwhelming lovemaking experiences!). And that desire to meet others’ needs makes for an incredibly caring, sensitive soul.

The Planets This Week: February 12, 2018

What do the planets have in store for this week? Well… the big news of the week, month and year is the Solar Eclipse in Aquarius on February 15th. This eclipse is part of a series of eclipses that started at the beginning of 2017. Two weeks after 2018’s first Lunar Eclipse in Leo comes the first Solar Eclipse at 27 degrees Aquarius. Considering that Solar Eclipses bring about radical change, the fact that this is in the sign of rebellion and progress amplifies the possibilities. Aquarius isn’t one for gradual change or for asking permission from superiors. Aquarius desires what’s good for everyone – whether they know it or not yet. With both the Sun and Moon in Aquarius, this Solar Eclipse may bring sudden, unexpected, and radical changes, particularly on a national or even global scale.

What can you expect from this Solar Eclipse? Nothing short of the unexpected. Chances are, most of the changes will be pleasant or at least neutral, but if you have planets or angles in the fixed signs, you may be profoundly affected in one way or another. Those who wish to maintain the establishment may have the worst of it, and those who thirst for change may feel as if this is jagged blessing from the universe.

Also, this week, communication planet Mercury moves into Pisces where it will be until March 5th. Our intuitive powers are strong, while our rational mind might be on hiatus. We’re in touch with the big picture and higher vision, but the details of daily life escape us. Miscommunications and misunderstandings are possible, as we lose focus and it becomes more difficult to tell the difference between dreams and reality.

The Planets This Month: February 2018

What’s in store for this month’s planet and how will they be affecting your sign? The big news of the month is the Solar Eclipse in Aquarius on the 15th. This is part of a cycle that started in 2017 and will be affecting the fixed signs or anyone with planets in fixed signs – Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.

Considering that Solar Eclipses bring about radical change, the fact that this is in the sign of rebellion and progress amplifies the possibilities. Aquarius isn’t one for gradual change or for asking permission from superiors. Aquarius desires what’s good for everyone – whether they know it or not yet. With both the Sun and Moon in Aquarius, this Solar Eclipse may bring sudden, unexpected, and radical changes, particularly on a national or even global scale.

On February 10th, love planet Venus moves into Pisces where it will stay until March 6th. During this time many of us may be incurable romantics. We might be prone to fantasy when it comes to love, seeing the god or goddess in everyone we meet, and thinking that we’ve met our dream partner. Practicality and discrimination go out the window, and we’re willing to sacrifice it all for our ideal love.

On the 17th communication planet Mercury moves into Pisces while the radiant Sun moves into Pisces on the 18th. During the remainder of the month look for positive ways to transcend the ordinary, like creative expression, meditation, yoga and other spiritual practices. This could be a great time to go on a retreat, or otherwise withdraw from socializing and busyness. If you don’t have a positive outlet for escape, you might be tempted to fall into the more negative expression of Pisces and be prone to addictions, illusions or avoidance.

The Planets This Week: January 29, 2018

The astro headline of the week is the Lunar Eclipse! This is no ordinary Eclipse it’s a Supermoon as well as a Blue Moon! This means it is fully charged and over-the-top intense. A Supermoon is when the moon is close to the earth while a Blue Moon is a second Full Moon in a calendar month.

The Lunar Eclipse is in Leo and Leo loves to be in the spotlight and eclipse everything around it, and literally, the Leo Supermoon will eclipse the Aquarius Sun on January 31st. The intense, sometimes sudden bursts of energy from this eclipse affects us all at a gut and emotional level, but will be especially felt by those with personal planets in the fixed signs, and especially by anyone with natal planets or angles at those degrees.

The energy of the Leo Lunar Eclipse is about passion and creativity. Colors may seem brighter, people friendlier; playtime and leisure activities are highlighted. A love affair that began at an earlier time may be progressing to another level. If your relationship is struggling you may find it’s time to move on. You should begin to get a clearer picture of what may be possible.

The Moon in Leo will focus on the self, and Aquarius Sun will be focused on the collective. Looking around the world, we have seen this polarity play out in a variety of ways, particularly the conflict in many places between nationalism and globalism. Leo loves attention and Aquarius loves progress, so expect to see more lights shining on corruption, bringing it out of the shadows. Remember, Jupiter is in Scorpio which is all about bringing issues out and into the open so we can expect a lot more illumination of recent issues in the media. #metoo

What do the planets have in store this week? It’s a fairly quiet week as we build toward the intense energies of next week’s Lunar Eclipse.

Action planet Mars moves into Sagittarius where it will be until March 18th. During this time, many of us will broaden our horizons and approach life as a daring adventure. We’ll be on the move, restless to explore new vistas and impatient with the daily grind.

Personal freedom is a high priority now, and many of us will feel an urge to break free from any stifling relationship or situation. “Don’t fence me in” could be the theme song of this time.

Energy is high and we’ll enjoy physical exercise and competitive sports. Spending time in the wilderness – away from people and ordinary pressures – recharges batteries and fuels inspiration. Travel, especially to foreign destinations, could also be on the agenda, because we long to expand beyond the familiar and encounter different cultures.

During this transit, we’re likely to feel enthusiastic about a variety of pursuits, and our zest for life will be contagious. Many of us will easily attract people with our adventurous spirit and optimistic outlook.

Watch out for a tendency toward recklessness and irresponsibility, especially with other people’s feelings. Many of us will be guilty of “foot in mouth” syndrome, blurting out whatever comes into our mind without thinking through the consequences. Be quick to offer a sincere apology, and we’re likely to be forgiven.

The Planets This Week: January 15, 2018

What do the planets have in store this week? The headline of the week is both Venus and the Sun moving into Aquarius. This week’s show is dedicated to all you Aquarians.

Aquarius is symbolized by the Water Bearer, the humanitarian of the Zodiac who brings water to the parched masses and loves to lend a helping hand. More than anything, though, Aquarius likes to feel different from everyone else around them. This sign will hang out with extremely conservative types as a foil to their liberal tendencies.

Although its symbol is the Water Bearer, Aquarius is in fact an Air sign, not a water sign. Fixed Air Aquarius embodies both stability and the urge to roam freely. Guess that’s part of being co-ruled by Uranus, the planet of rebellion, along with Saturn, the planet of discipline. Uranus’s changeable, unpredictable nature paired with Saturn’s focused energy; the steadfastness of Fixity paired with the free-flowing quality of Air… Which influence should Aquarius follow?

This sign is definitely an interesting blend of characteristics: communicative yet guarded; always seeking out the new and unusual, and yet most comfortable with staying the course. What’s the old yarn about Aquarius? ‘They love humanity. It’s people they can’t stand.’ What a strange mix of contradictions!

Aquarius is the most freedom-seeking sign of the Zodiac, which can make this sign rather hard to pin down. To be romantically involved with an Aquarius means accepting that, as soon as you get to the party, that Aquarius lover will disappear into the crowd without a backward glance! But even though this sign can have trouble getting comfortable when it’s one-on-one, Aquarius is one of the most devoted and loyal of all the signs.

The Planets This Month: January 2018

What do the planets have in store this month? The year and month started off supercharged with a Super Full Moon in Cancer. Emotions were running high and expectations set for the year ahead. On top of the Full Moon unpredictable Uranus turned direct after months of traveling retrograde. Sudden events and unexpected occurrences were experienced by many.

Communication planet Mercury moves into Capricorn where it will team up immediately with somber Saturn and then with intense Pluto. We all need to take care with what we say at this time.

January 16th, there’s a New Moon in Capricorn so it’s a good time to make long-term plans and review the support and structures in our lives. This is especially true as the planetary heavyweights Saturn and Pluto are also in Capricorn. The following day, love planet Venus moves into socialable Aquarius so friendships, groups and social media will be important. The Sun follows suit soon after and moves into Aquarius on the 19th so thinking outside the box will come easily to many of us.

Towards to end of the month, warrior Mars moves into Sagittarius were it will be until March 17th. During this time, many of us will broaden horizons and approach life as a daring adventure. We may be constantly on the move, restless to explore new vistas and impatient with the daily grind. Personal freedom will be a high priority and we’ll feel an urge to break free from any stifling relationship or situation. “Don’t fence me in” could be the theme song of this period.

January ends on an intense note with a Lunar Eclipse in Leo. There’ll be a focus on abundance and generosity so we need to invite goodness, grace and generosity into our life with an open heart.

The Planets this Week: December 18, 2017

What do the planets have in store for this week? The astro headline of the week is responsible Saturn moving into its home sign of Capricorn where it will be until December 2020. It has not been in Capricorn since 1991.

Saturn restricts, disciplines, and wears away. It doesn’t obliterate, like Pluto, or suddenly, like Uranus. Saturn erodes over time. Saturn isn’t necessarily a destroyer, though. It also strengthens and solidifies whatever passes its test. Saturn is a teacher. It’s not the cool teacher, giving out As to everyone (Jupiter). Saturn makes you learn and earn.

The sign of Capricorn is determined, ambitious, hard-working, and practical. Saturn in Capricorn is a leader, but it leads by example. Everything it has is useful and earned. During this transit, we may see a global return to focusing on achieving real, practical goals. Also this week, there’s a New Moon. The Sagittarius New Moon awakens an inner need for many kinds of stimulation. Having recently completed a contemplative period, your body craves for some excitement now. You may find yourself daydreaming about travel to foreign lands, or maybe tackling a philosophical conundrum.

On Thursday the Sun moves into Capricorn where it will be until January 19th. While the Sun is in Capricorn, and depending on how it influences your natal chart, you may feel driven to succeed. You could find yourself working long hours to achieve your goals and bring long-term projects to completion. You might not have much time for your personal life, and might even neglect your health. In your drive to get the job done, be sure not to sacrifice too much. Make sure that what you’re working for is your definition of success, and not someone else’s.
