Stargazing — Week of July 9th through July 15th, 2018

Stargazing — Week of July 9th through July 15th, 2018

July continues to have Mars retrograde through August. Adding to that Mercury turns retrograde on the 25th in Leo and two eclipses are in between. An extremely hot and active summer lays ahead. Mars retrograde through August has you reviewing and revising your aspirations and ambitions. Make certain that the actions you take are working towards your future goals, and not just doing the same old comfortable rut thing.

It is also good to detach from the world for a bit if you are able. The July 12th’s cancer/Capricorn partial Solar eclipse brings in new energy. It’s the first in a series of Cancer-Capricorn eclipses that will occur in 2019. Begin to keep a journal to note what occurs in your life at this time because it’s the indication of what’s coming in 2019. Be sure to watch your emotions and that which triggers them. Cancer is associated with home, family, food, children, emotions, and residential real estate, so pay attention and tread carefully in these areas.

This is another busy week. It brings an intense Supermoon/partial solar eclipse as well as Jupiter turning back into a direct motion, a most difficult opposition along with a tricky sign change. Although this may be a lucky week for some, July promises to be the most eventful month of 2018.

With all that’s going on now in the universe, expect some of our Hollywood and Political icons crossing over, possible suicides, anger in the streets, and upsetting events in the news beginning this week.

There is a challenging communications and traffic aspect early Monday morning. Allow extra time or start late on Monday morning.  Also on Monday, Venus enters Virgo until August 6th. This is not an easy combination as to becomes harder to enjoy life’s pleasures. If you have anyone in your life who is overly critical, Venus becomes a total perfectionist about money as well as social relationships. However, it is a good combination for working on home or office beautification. Make a list and you can accomplish a great deal.

On Tuesday, finally, expansive Jupiter ends his backwards cycle that began early in March. In the weeks ahead, you can put constructive effort into expansive new projects, but know that it will be September before there is better traction to move those projects forward. The downside of Jupiter going direct is that it’s in the water sign of Scorpio which can bring storms, raid, and massive flooding.

Wednesday, July 11th could bring an exciting meeting with a stranger or a note from your bank that there are more funds available. Jupiter direct brings good news and always opens the door for good fortune. This is a good day to purchase that lottery ticket. Wednesday evening is excellent for getting out of your routine and meeting friends.

The partial solar eclipse on Thursday brings a Supermoon as well, and Pluto, the planet of crisis, karma due, and transformation, is opposing both the Sun and Moon. This is not a time for travel, new beginnings, or expressing new ideas. Instead it’s time to batten down the hatches, meditate, and pull back. Do not schedule surgery, dental work, or any other important events. If you already have, it best to reschedule.

The effect of any eclipse arrives two week before and lingers two weeks after the eclipse. Since we have another lunar eclipse at month’s end, allow July to be your reflective and healing month. Reach out to others who may feel isolated or depressed and try to uplift their spirits. Venus moves in with her gentleness on the weekend, to ease Saturn’s wrath, and remind us all that business can also be light, fun, and cheerful.

STARGAZING — Week of July 2nd through July 8th, 2018

STARGAZING — Week of July 2nd through July 8th, 2018


Mars has been slowing down for several weeks now, and it finally turned retrograde on Tuesday June 26, lasting until August 27. Mars and Venus turn retrograde less often than all the other planets so it is good to pay attention when they do (Venus will turn retrograde in October). Mars represents your actions, assertiveness and ambition. It began its retrograde at 10 degrees Aquarius and moves backwards to 28 degrees Capricorn. If you have natal planets in those degrees, you are more heavily activated. It’s time to look at your ambitions to see if an adjustment is needed. You can also look at behind the scenes work towards future ambitions. Aquarius is associated with friends, groups and organizations. Over the next three months it’s time to reconnect with old friends or reach out to explore new groups. It also may be time to upgrade or repair your technology.

This upcoming week is a mixed bag that could bring you more lucky breaks. There are three trines, a minor retrograde, along with an opposition. As July opens, the energetic Sun is moving to make harmony with expansive Jupiter, a planet pushing you to open to a new and larger expression of your spirit. And if that isn’t enough push-pull for you, this June Full Moon is setting you up for three eclipses starting on July 12th. Instead of trying to make nice with all the tests and contradictions, it is wise to allow them to show you different aspects of your life and future goals. Let it be okay if certain aspects of your life are messy and do not fit into a nice category now. By the end of summer, many of your ambitions and those people you associate with will shift. Give yourself and the Universe permission to readjust your routine since it is going to do it anyway, with or without your permission!

On Tuesday you may be crying over something that makes you happy. Meanwhile, on Wednesday, the Fourth of July Holiday, Chiron begins it’s four month retrograde cycle. Because this happens on our Country’s Birthday, it brings an opportunity for the United States for acknowledge and face old wounds and hurts and bring up their issues for healing.

Thursday, July 5th the Sun trining Jupiter is a great day for women, children, the refugees, and real estate matters.

Friday is a day to watch your mouth because a Mercury-Mars opposition can bring out your sharp tongue.

Mercury has moved into Leo and because it turns retrograde July 25th, the communications planet will be in this heart opening sign until September 5th rather than its normal three weeks. Make time to play this summer. Be creative and review where your heart is engaged, or not; and where do you need to have more fun or step into leadership?

Saturday morning brings quick mental challenges along with increasing your sensitivity to those less fortunate as well as the environment. The rest of the weekend is great for social activities.

What’s coming in July:

July 13 brings the first eclipse in the sign Cancer in about nine years. This one will be a preview of more eclipses in Cancer and Capricorn coming in 2019. There is a lunar eclipse in friendly Aquarius on July 27th and Mercury turns retrograde July 25-August 18th.

Stargazing — Week of June 25th through July 1st, 2018

Stargazing — Week of June 25th through July 1st, 2018

The skies are giving us a Lucky streak for the next three months brings us a Grand Water Trine, which means there is a triple harmony helping your work with and heal your emotional wellbeing. Mercury in Cancer asks you to think of quick ways to nurture yourself. Neptune in Pisces suggests you that you find some quiet, meditative, watery place to reflect on what’s most important in life. There’s a tricky sign change that will make this a very busy week.

Jupiter in Scorpio is still moving retrograde until July 10th, so it is good to heal any emotional wounds or research future projects that can take you to a higher level. A more challenging aspect is Mars slowing down to turn retrograde in Aquarius on June 26th until the end of the summer, and this will be on the opposite side of the sky as Venus in Leo. One side of you wants to open to passion, fun, and creativity, and the other side wants to detach from the world to review your ambitions from a comfortable distance. All types of relationships are shifting under this energy as well. It’s time to resolve some anger issues, check on your ability to be assertive, and strengthen your leadership skills and abilities.

Both Venus and Mars are challenging Jupiter, and that means it is time to determine if your belief system is getting in the way of you going to a higher level. Watch your hips, ankles and wallet. A Venus square Jupiter may tempt you indulge in some expensive appetites.

Between Summer Solstice energies and three eclipses in July and August, there is no shortage of activity and opportunities to open to something larger in your life by the time we get to the Fall Equinox.

The Capricorn Full Moon on Thursday is a time to get serious and complete any outstanding transactions. The Sun—Saturn opposition will be sure that you pay up your karmic debts. Bills are coming due, both real and past life. Mercury enters Leo on that same day, bringing drama, fiery, and bold energies. Because Mercury retrogrades in July, this energy will linger until the end of August. Also, Pluto is moving across the ecliptic this summer, something that has not happened since the 1930’s. Keep an eye on the Stock Market, food prices and food distribution.

Friday has pleasant planetary energies for social activities with small groups or individuals in an intimate setting with no loud places or being with people you don’t really like.

Saturday morning is a bit uncomfortable as Mercury squares Uranus, but it improves at the day moves along. Be careful of small accidents around the home, and watch your step.

On Sunday, The moon is void-of-course all day, making it a perfect day to keep a low profile and tend to quiet, humble tasks, such as house cleaning, gardening, or laundry.

STARGAZING — Week of June 18 through June 24th, 2018

STARGAZING — Week of June 18 through June 24th, 2018


This week brings us the summer season, the Summer Solstice, as well as a long retrograde along with some trines and tricky oppositions.

Monday is a bit complicated because the Moon moves into Virgo to give you a list of tasks to accomplish. At the same time, dreamy Neptune in Pisces, the exact opposite of Virgo, turns retrograde until November 24.

Neptune can be strongly spiritual or it just wants to daydream and take a nap. Although you may not feel such a distant planet turning retrograde on Monday, know that it begins a process of opening up to a higher vision, practicing forgiveness, and trusting your intuition at a higher level.

This energy gives you a chance to step away from some of the unpleasant difficulties in life, such as credit card debt, an overdue mortgage payment, or an unresolved and painful relationship decision. Some other areas are fake news, being deceived or lied to, medication problems, and protecting your privacy.

It’s time to allow yourself to step away from your worries and cares, even if just for a bit, and look at your higher spiritual purpose on planet Earth. Tuesday and Wednesday are enthusiastic because talkative Mercury is making a harmonious trine to “I’m ready for more” Jupiter and “open to a higher vision” Neptune.

The highlight of the week is on June 21st Thursday, the Summer Solstice, when the Sun moves into Cancer. It may be time to schedule that mammogram, let go of old hurts, and give out plenty of hugs.

The next three months shows a Grand Water Trine, which means there is a triple harmony while you are helping your emotional wellbeing.

Mercury in Cancer asks you to think of quick ways to nurture yourself. Neptune in Pisces would love it if you went off to some quiet, meditative, watery place to reflect on what’s most important in life. Jupiter in Scorpio is still moving retrograde until July 10th, so it’s a good energy to heal any emotional wounds or research future projects that can take you to a higher level.

More of a challenging nature, Mars is slowing down to turn retrograde next week in Aquarius on Tuesday, June 26, and is on the opposite side of the sky from Venus in Leo. One side of you wants to open to passion, fun and creativity, and the other side wants to detach from the world to review your ambitions from a comfortable distance. This could cause some friction for you and the people you love and are close to.

All types of relationships are shifting under this energy. Both Venus and Mars are challenging Jupiter, and that means it is time to determine if your belief system is getting in the way of you going to a higher level.

Between summer solstice energies and three eclipses coming in July and August, there is no shortage of opportunities to open to something larger in your life by Fall Equinox. And if you really want to get abstract, Pluto is moving across the ecliptic this summer, something that has not happened since the 1930’s

Friday has pleasant planetary energies for social activities with small groups or individuals in an intimate setting (so no loud and noisy places with people you don’t really like).

On Saturday, Mercury makes a tricky opposition to Pluto which could bring in conversations causing a battle, threats, or intimidation. Saturday morning is a bit uncomfortable but it improves at the day moves along.

STARGAZING – Week of June 11tth through June 17th, 2018

STARGAZING – Week of June 11tth through June 17th, 2018

This week two opposite sides of the coin meet. The favorable opportunities are crossed by a square and an opposition.

The Moon is in practical Taurus all day Monday. This supports your efforts to produce something you can point at and say, “I completed a project and that’s an achievement!”

On Tuesday, mental Mercury moves into emotional Cancer until the end of the month. Your communications may be driven by emotions rather than thinking things through. Meditate and take a moment to make sure your head and heart are working together in the coming weeks. Small projects around home and family are supported.

The Gemini New Moon on Wednesday, June 13 brings lightness and love. It’s time to open to new ideas, drive somewhere in a different way than usual, and meet new people. This annual Gemini New Moon is also a Super Moon and more fun-filled than most. The focus is making new connections, buying locally, and upgrading your personal technology.

Talkative Mercury is in gentle harmony with eccentric Uranus, so you benefit by stepping a little bit out of your comfort zone. Relationship planet Venus moves into heart opening Leo until July 9. Bring out your creative passions in the week ahead, and know that this is not a bashful combination. It’s fulfilling to share on a heart level. Make a movie or put on a show!

There is a Grand Water Trine (means triple harmony) in the sky now. Expansive Jupiter is in harmony with spiritual Neptune, and both are in harmony with our galaxy’s strategic planner Pallas-Athena. Remember life can be playful, self-indulgent, romantic, and dramatic. Because creativity and playful enthusiasm will be running high this month, it’s a great time to party or run off to a sunny, warm, and popular resort.

Make a plan to bring big spiritual visions into the world, and the trine water element signs of Scorpio, Pisces and Cancer advise you to make sure your emotions are tuned in with your visionary ideals.

Thursday, June 14th could bring some surprising upsets to your social relationships or finances. Keep a low profile on Thursday evening, as there are minor challenges between value systems. There is simply no sense fighting over unimportant or petty issues. Just don’t waste the energy.

On Friday, practice setting up some healthy boundaries and let other’s know about them.

The Moon moves into Leo on Saturday for a fun day and remains there on Sunday, Father’s Day. This big-hearted Leo Moon showers love on everybody.

STARGAZING – Week of June 4th through June 10th, 2018

STARGAZING – Week of June 4th through June 10th, 2018

This week starts off smoothly, then tightens up, finally giving you lots to think about and process.

The Moon is in friendly Aquarius all day Sunday, making happy emotional connections to your contacts. Get out and socialize. The Moon continues in Aquarius all day Monday, but it is in the void-of-course” phase. The Moon likes to make relationships with other planets, so you often feel emotionally disconnected when she is void. Tend to practical tasks or tuning in through spiritual practice.

Tuesday and Wednesday are the most active days this week. The Gemini Sun joins Mercury on Tuesday, giving you lots to talk over. With Mercury in your powerhouse, you can turn matters around your way, but don’t try to force your ideas on others. Tuesday June 5th is a host to a powerful face off with Venus and Pluto, providing energy for a fertile field of obsessions and compulsive attractions and actions. With all this deep and mysterious energy present, it’s not a good time to make any important decisions regarding love or money.

Wednesday the Sun/Mercury duo bumps into a square with Neptune and it becomes difficult to separate facts from fiction. Weigh your facts before jumping to a conclusion. This energy can disrupt your sleep or cause some disjointed dreams while the dream-planet Neptune is activated. Focus on one task at a time and try not to think too far ahead, and you will be fine.

Thursday and Friday are better for moving your body under and Aries moon, rather than needing to think too much. SO walk the malls or take a run around a nearby lake.

On Saturday, it’s best to get your work done early so you can kick back in the afternoon and evening. Rest your worn out nerves and dream about your upcoming vacation. Swim in the ocean or take a dip in the pool if possible.
