FORECAST: Weekly Astrology February 17, 2020

A busy week awaits us with a lot of cosmic activity stirring up our lives. If the news and activity wasn’t confusing enough for us all recently, we also have the added stress of Mercury stationing retrograde on Sunday, the 16th.  We have already seen much of the impact of Mercury, while conjunct Neptune, over the past few weeks. As mentioned before, Mercury spins retrograde to a point that it has already traversed known as the shadow period. This explains why so many of us have been befuddled by the recent turn of events.  This has been a particularly cloudy period where what seems right is actually disregarded in favor of a different narrative. Classic fake news. We are in a place where the rise of a surreal rhetoric has taken over in favor of the truth. Spun from the mouths of the most powerful, this is a dangerous and damaging voice that dismantles all that we may have previously deemed as normal.  The watery realm of Pisces is often obscure and dreamlike, and when Mercury stations retrograde there the waters become even more muddy. Where will you feel it? If you have questions about your own unique destiny contact me at,, or  

On the same day, action-oriented Mars steps into the Capricorn mansion and along with it brings a triggering spark to the significant lineup of powerful slow-moving outer planets.  Mars is considered an inner planet and therefore has a faster transit than the outer planets. This action-oriented planet serves as the spark that ignites action on behalf of the collection of heavy hitters that are currently moving through Capricorn.  While it is too early to tell, we can still feel the presence of Mars as it enters into this powerful fray. One aspect to be aware of is a trine between Mars and Uranus. Since Mars is a triggering planet, expect for a dramatic and unexpected event to unfold over the course of the week.  Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto continue to cluster together and once Mars arrives in the same degree range as those planets we will begin to see dramatic action unfold. Finally, the Sun enters Pisces on the 18th for its yearly visit. The Sun in Pisces highlights all of the aforementioned characteristics and shines a light on all things that pertain.  Our sense of spirituality may be undergoing a transition as we ponder which is the right way to turn.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your ruling planet, Mars has just entered Capricorn and joined the other outer planets that are currently transiting there.  You may get some rather surprising news regarding travel and your financial prospects. Sudden, unexpected changes are likely so be sure to check travel plans and financial holdings before departing.  Such unanticipated events can be a real boon to you.                                          

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Uranus is spinning through Taurus and the unexpected suddenly becomes a reality.  As Mars sweeps into Capricorn and forms an easy alignment to Uranus, good news may be headed your way.  Topics of education, travel and career are all likely. It could be that you enhance your prospects by an immersion in training which bolsters your marketability.                                                                     

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Your ruling planet, Mercury is spinning retrograde and impacting your status at work.  Be careful to research and study all facets of your work and watch for missteps there. Unexpected results could evolve that spell out a shift if you work in a large organization.  Contacts with elderly relatives may also deliver some rather surprising news.   

CANCER (June 22-July 22): Watch for events from a close friend or co-worker to appear quite unexpectedly.  This is a generally positive shift, but be aware. Carefully review plans that involve education or travel.  The passion may awaken between you and your significant partner this week as Mars steps into that area of your life and lights a fire.                       

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Train your focus on your physical and mental health.  Not to worry, just focus your attention on these challenges.  A new diet or exercise routine might simply do the trick. When working with large organizations such as insurance, banks, hospitals etc, take special care to examine all data and communications received from them.      

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The Sun, Mercury (retrograde), and Neptune are all in Pisces and opposing your Sun.  Be aware of a tendency to bend the truth or to be a victim of falsehoods. Clarity is critical and worth the time investigating.  Challenges continue with creative projects which might be frustrating you and your sense of self. Persist. 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Challenges continue to bind your progress in topics of home and family.  Remember challenges are opportunities for substantial growth, so the silver is in the lining of this cloud.  Strive for clarity with regard for topics that include health (mental and physical) and anything that has to do with your daily routine.                                     

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21): Pay close attention to details that involve creative ventures or children.  Clarity may be hard to obtain, so extra effort in research may pay off. A challenging situation that involves documentation and a sibling may be drawing your attention more than usual.  An unusual gesture by your partner may surprise you, pleasantly.                                 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Financial matters may dominate your head space this week as you come to discover alternate methods for investing and consolidating.  This theme may linger for a few weeks. If you act, act with support from the outside. Family matters may be a bit off-kilter as well so be aware of possible communication mix-ups and dropped thoughts.                                                                                                        

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Mars has entered Capricorn and brought a lot of attention to your reinvention and rediscovery.  As you grow and adapt you may be finding a place that feels familiar and secure. Mars may inspire you to make that final push for closure on a topic that has plagued you.  Confusion may linger with siblings and with documentation.           

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):  By week’s end the Sun will depart Aquarius and your decision process may be clearer than ever.  Your plans to make a significant transition may get a much-needed boost. If your plans include a financial exchange, get an outside opinion before you act as the facts may be ambiguous and uncertain.  Possible surprises from family.  

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The Sun moves into Pisces and joins Mercury (retrograde) and Neptune.  This powerful combination may lure you into a false narrative with others and you may be unclear about their intentions and they may be unclear about yours.  Above all, check all correspondences and don’t take any gesture as a solid representation of what is actually happening.
