FORECAST: Weekly Astrology January 7, 2019

This will be a highly charged week for Capricorns. The Sun, Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto are all gathered in the sign of the cardinal earth sign. Being a cardinal sign imbues all who have such an astrology attribute to be great initiators. Aries is cardinal fire, Cancer is cardinal water, and Libra is cardinal air. With such an intense focus on initiation, there can be no turning back. We must move forward. To top off that action we witness a new Moon solar eclipse on January 6th at 15 degrees Capricorn. With cardinal earth energy we can expect to see earthbound things being overturned and a renegotiation has to occur before we can see where we are headed. Capricorn is a solid, reliable, determined sign that always gets the job done. It should come as no surprise that each of us will be feeling this experience differently but also in different areas of our lives. On a global level, this is of the utmost importance as we see major changes sweeping across institutions. The key descriptor for this rare gathering is responsible reconstruction. In order to reconstruct, we must first witness a de-construction. Look to major institutions, physical structures, real estate, and earth-centered events to dominate during this period. To redeem is to first relinquish and ultimately recover. To find out where this alignment is occurring in your chart, contact me for more detailed information at, or

Since the eclipse and the gathering of planets takes place in a cardinal sign, all the other cardinal signs will be triggered by the angle of the influence. In this case, Aries, Cancer, and Libra will each stand in harsh or challenging angles to this event. This gathering of planets and the subsequent eclipse all point to a powerful moment when we might begin to see the results of this major shift. As we approach the 2020’s we will be involved in a re-ordering of the world, unlike anything we have witnessed to date. As the pressure mounts, we have to adjust our expectations and goals to accommodate this shift. In the United States, we can see this unfolding in our political drama. The U.S. is a cardinal country with a birthday of July 4th, 1776, making it a Cancer country. We have begun to see this slow unravelling with the elections of the past few years. Corruption, lack of focus, and a deterioration of norms have been widely evident as we stare at our screens in anticipation of the next biggest story to break. This is a slow process due to the motion of the outer planets that are driving this shift. Much will be torn down and much will be rebuilt. The process may not be pleasant and the challenges are many, but the final outcome; the end result will find us in a much more stable and productive state.

ARIES (March 21- April 19)
Your ruling planet, Mars, will be a motivator for you this week. Now in Aries, Mars is all about action. The action for you will be dominated by four planets in your career sector. This is where change is needed and is most likely sought. Concentrated energy has great value if it is channelled properly.

TAURUS (April 20 -May 20)
A decision you may have been postponing may no longer be allowed to wallow in indecision. While tempting though it may be, putting off a choice to correct your life may no longer be an option. Education, travel, self-betterment are all avenues worthy of your focus. Events may propel you to find a viable means to improve.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
Your ruling planet, Mercury, joins the Sun, Saturn, and Pluto this week. With that in mind, you may be involved in negotiating terms with a large organization and an elderly relative. While both of these entities need not occur together, the likelihood of events unfolding in those areas is high. Change is in order.

CANCER (June 22-July 22)
A lot of action will be unfolding with regard to your significant relationship. This can be a fruitful and deeply rewarding experience if you approach it with confidence and an openness to expand. There are challenges involved with any shift in priorities, but that is where growth comes. When all is said and done you will emerge strengthened.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Turn your focus on health and wellness this week. This is a repeating theme for the coming months and it would be wise to take heed of its presence. Exercise, diet, mindfulness, and other health-oriented practices all figure prominently and you can successfully emerge from this time renewed if you embrace the time and pivot accordingly.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
A high concentration of powerful planets including your ruler, Mercury, are all gathered in your creative sector. Children, self-expression, and fun-seeking are all part of this astrological influence. There are challenges in this arena, but they can be optimized if you are forewarned. Use this opportunity to forge toward a new definition of your inner self.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Home and family are looming large in your week ahead. Four planets are gathered in that area of your life and you may see some fairly dramatic events unfold. Something about the structure of your domestic life is on the table for review. You may have to deconstruct before you can reconstruct in a more useful manner.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21)
You may be examining your relationships with siblings this week as the planetary activity points to that area of your life. Documentation, correspondence, and negotiations are all on the table. What you come away with this week may be sneak preview of the coming year, so pay attention and keep track of all paperwork.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Your finances continue to be the central focus of your week. Investments, long-range plans, annuities and the like are all up for consideration. The choices you make are liable to have long-term ramifications so seek outside counsel before you act impulsively. Don’t be fooled by a temporary flood of good feelings. Caution is wise.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
There are four planets aligned in Capricorn. With that in mind, it is likely that you are making major changes in your life during this period. What was once normal and natural may now be redefined. This period also provides you with an opportunity to reach for your greatest potential. This may be your year.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Things are moving in and out of transition for you. You could be on the edge of a bold new beginning. Pause to reflect on the direction you are taking for the outcome may be a long-term one. Words may come quickly, but try and avoid that impulsivity if you can. Remain flexible and dynamic and see what arrives.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
You may be reevaluating your business associates this week. An overhaul of your long-term business plans may be a worthwhile effort especially if they do not meet your own personal desires. Money may motivate you to reconsider your alliances and to trim away those that do not serve you well. Career prospects are good.
