FORECAST: Weekly Astrology July 13, 2020

Now that Mercury is direct it has still to traverse over the shadow period.  These are the degrees over which the pesky planet went into reverse motion.  With that in mind we have to still be wary of all the typical Mercury retrograde mix-ups that are so common during this phase. Communications, contracts, mechanical devices, and all things that have to do with precision and timing are those that need to heed a warning.  News has been quite fraught recently and it would be easy to ascribe some of that to the retrograde season.  After all we have more than Mercury spinning in reverse these days.  JUpiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto are also in this mode so many things seem uncertain and cloudy at this time.  The other major event that has been evident is the entry of Mars into Aries.  Mars is the ruler of Aries and is especially active and present.  Mars is known for aggression, anger, ambition, and action.  This is the reason why it is the ruling planet of Aries which displays many of those same qualities.  Aries individuals as well as other fire signs (Leo and Sagittarius) may also be motivated by this transit.  Other cardinal signs (Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) will also feel the impact of this Arian energy in a variety of ways.  This is a highly motivating and incredibly volatile period and Mars will be in Aries until 2021 due to a lengthy retrograde, later in the fall.  Where is that happening in your life?  Contact me at,

Elsewhere we will witness the Sun coming into an opposition with Jupiter.  This can be a generally optimistic and beneficial aspect, although it can also lead to overconfidence and amplification of events and responses.  Jupiter will be shining brightly as the Sun casts its light on this planet.  We should be able to observe it in the clear night sky.  Shortly after the Sun/Jupiter opposition, the Sun will oppose Pluto.  Pluto is known for deconstruction and reconstruction.  Uncovering hidden secrets is also one of Pluto’s traits, so we should be mindful of hidden agendas and secrets being revealed during this time.  What has been buried that would create a controversy if it were now revealed?  The combination of these two oppositions can deliver a rather large revelation as Jupiter tends to amplify its influence in either positive or negative ways.  We are immersed in an unusual construct of events and scandals that could easily be busted wide open during this period.  Where will you feel it?  If you have questions about your own unique destiny contact me at,, or

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You should begin to exhibit great motivating power this week.  There may be little that stands in your way.  With your ruling planet, Mars in Aries until the end of 2020, you may find that you are able to accomplish just about all that you set out to do.  Your home and family may top that list.                                                    

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Unexpected outcomes may surprise you this week as you face closure of some nature.  Whether you are beginning something new or seeing the end of another you may be motivated to reach a conclusion.  Be aware of documentation and its importance in your further progress.  You may be driven to wrap up an agreement.                                                                                           

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Group endeavours may be what drives you this week.  Whether you are leading a group or simply a willing participant, you may be motivated to leave your mark on the progress.  Your focus on domestic matters may be dictated by a financial concern or advantage.  Conversations may dwell on investments and the returns.                        

CANCER (June 22-July 22): As the Sun shines on in Cancer you may be especially emotional particularly about romantic decisions.  Your partner may be the source of worry for you as you try and find a diplomatic way to express yourself without doing battle.  You have great sway during this time as Mercury lingers in Cancer.  Choose your words carefully.         

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Despite the obvious restrictions you may still be motivated to travel.  There are many ways to travel that do not require airplanes or cruise ships.  A short trip might satisfy that restless urge.  This theme is more about intellectual expansion than anything else.  A curious mind is a wonderful thing.  Find a creative way to express yourself.                       

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The Moon and Venus will be joining forces in your career domain.  This should be a good week to seek out employment options and other occupational outlets.  Your creativity is being tested and you can respond with a deep dive into research and investigation.  You don’t know an answer until you push further to find it.                      

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):  Relationships may dominate your week as Mars moves through that area of your life.  A restless curiosity may compel you to seek answers to spiritual questions.  Family and domestic topics may draw your attention as you strive to find long-lasting harmony there.  A radical approach to civility may be the best method for peace.                                                          

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21): Your focus may be narrowly defined by your daily work this week.  Projects may be the single most important driver as you strive to complete a long-standing task.  Siblings and legal contracts may become entwined as you struggle to find the right formula for an adequate resolution.  Your tenacity may be your best asset.                                               

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A lively and very conversant week lies ahead as you and your significant partner mull over domestic concerns.  Financial considerations hover over all aspects so bear that in mind and seek outside advice if those choices prove to be unwieldy.  Creativity is a major motivator so find a way to express yourself.                                                                                                                                    

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Saturn has retrograded back into capricorn and you may feel the weight of your ruling planet.  Despite the responsibility that comes with decision you might gather some new found strength from this transit.  Focus on domestic topics and strive for harmony in all relationships.  Daily work becomes easier and engaging.  Diligence.                             

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):  Closure is looming in your world this week as events and circumstances push you into a corner.  Inner resolve may help you to tackle any challenge and move forward with confidence and ease.  Contracts and documentation may be the motivator for you this week.  Artistic expression will help alleviate the inevitable.  Express yourself.                      

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your household may be filled with lively discussions that involve financial topics and the struggles of working with others.  As these times are one of trial you may find it difficult to stand out amongst your co-workers.  See the challenge, accept it and rise above it.  If uncertainty plagues you try a new approach.
