FORECAST: Weekly Astrology August 10, 2020

The heat is on for many fire signs this week.  Aries (especially) Leo and Saggittarius are under the gun as Mars squares Pluto and the Sun joins the mix to pour fuel on the fire.  Mars is in its domicile under Aries and is especially eager to leave its mark.  Fellow fire signs will also pick up on the energy.  The Sun is in the late degrees of Leo and certain to be a major player.  Of course all signs will feel the energy as this is quite powerful and meaningful so we should all pay attention.  Mars is the ruler of aggression and Pluto rules destruction so when we put these two together in a tense  square (90 degrees) we can expect something disruptive to occur.  Does that mean the sky is falling?  Possibly.  Given the current state of the planet and the abundance of hotspots in the world this might be the time they erupt.  This can manifest as physical earthbound events such as earthquakes and other natural disasters, but it can also inflame political fires and the like.  With tensions growing between two world superpowers like India and China, this could be especially problematic.  The details of each of our hot spots depends on the details of each individual, but make no mistake; we will feel it, and likely feel it profoundly.  Where is that happening in your life?  Do you know?  Contact me at,

The saving grace comes from the harmonious angle of the Sun and Mars both in fire signs.  If this energy can be channeled in a creative manner, good results can occur.    The sign of Leo rules the creative and distinctive.  So when we piece together these hot points in the astrology of the week we could rise up to the occasion and spin something quite powerful that has many positive results.  Potential is the world that best applies to this aspect.  Potential is stored energy that is ready to burst forth.  Having this foreknowledge can be liberating and prime for a powerful splash of expression.  How does this best manifest?  There will be an undeniable passion that we will all feel smoldering beneath the surface.  The challenge comes in trying to harness that potential and guide it in an appropriate and useful manner.  We will all have this influence in our lives, but where it appears will vary with each of us.  Where will you feel it?  If you have questions about your own unique destiny contact me at,, or

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Enormous potential lies between you and your occupation this week.  Mars in Aries (your ruler) and Pluto in Capricorn hook up to present you with an opportunity to rise and shine.  Remember occupation is how you spend your time; not necessarily how you make money, just to be clear.  Pay attention to leads and contacts.                                                  

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Things may be heating up in an area of your life that seems destined to change.  If you are in control of those changes you can make great progress in a constructive manner.  If things are out of your control get ready for a roller coaster ride.  Travel and education are bold areas to investigate for a new start.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21): The week ahead should provide you with lots of opportunities at your primary occupation.  Your curiosity is on fire and your ideas may be flowing with great enthusiasm.  You may have to tread carefully and slowly to avoid coming on too strong.  Still, your forthrightness may be admired and applauded provided you can reign it in appropriately.                                                 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): With Mars in Aries and the Sun and Mercury in Leo you’d be wise to tap into the fiery energy of the week.  Creativity is at an all-time high for you and the times are ripe for self expression.  Challenges may surface that involve finances and long term investments, so act accordingly.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Focus on your physical well being this week and see what results you can conjure.  Finances are also a key driver so train your attention on all things related to money.  Challenges continue with business alliances and partnership, but don’t despair as good things come from heated discussions.  Keep it real and remain grounded.
