FORECAST: Weekly Astrology July 20, 2020

Mercury is direct and safely on its way forward, which should clear up communications considerably.  It may be hard to fathom that this little planet can cause so much disruption, but all you need to do is glance backwards to see what came undone or didn’t follow through.  With that out of the way we don’t have to worry until the fall for that to occur again.  Get your contracts in order and the paperwork completed while the times are right.  The other big cosmic activity this week has to do with a new Moon in Cancer.  Even though we had a new Moon in Cancer back in the beginning of the month this one is different by degree and therein lies the topic.  This time the new Moon will stand in opposition to Saturn.  Saturn is currently in retrograde itself and closer to the earth than usual, which brings all Saturnian topics into a much sharper focus.  Saturn is the taskmaster and while it generally gets a bad rap from the astrological community, it is actually a favorable planet depending on where it is located in your own personal chart.   Saturn likes completion, tidiness, order, and justice.  Could this be a signal that hidden secrets are now coming to light that require justice?  Highly likely.  Have you done good by your own personal journey?  If so, then this will be a rewarding period.  If you have been negligent, then you might have to punt to complete your job.  Where is that happening in your life?  Do you know?  Contact me at,

While all that emotional stuff is unfolding in your life due to the Moon, the Sun will step into Leo on the 22nd.  Leo is the astrological ruler of the Sun and is symbolic of the father.  Bold and charismatic, typical Leos embrace the stage and power.  Their presence is always known and the room is full of their energy when they enter.  This time in the Sun is typically defined by drama, creativity and a sense of purpose.  Fellow fire signs (Aries, Sagittarius) often pick up on the energy and are able to express the same themselves.  If you were seeking a time to be bold and confident this might be it.  Of course with so many powerful outer planets in retrograde you may feel less inspired and more likely to re-think your path forward.  Retrogrades are times of reflection and are best used to recalculate your plans.  If you use the power of the Leo Sun to manifest your creativity you may be able to reset your expectations and approach the future renewed.  Notice how the prefix “re” is always associated with the retrogrades.  This is how to best use them and not shy away in fear or doubt.  Embrace the change, take on the challenge, and boldly go forward.  Where will you feel it?  If you have questions about your own unique destiny contact me at,, or

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You are still the one to follow, Aries as Mars drives you to your destiny.  If you ever needed a time to push your agenda, conquer your fears, and plow forward this is the time.  Your ruling planet, Mars is in Aries until early 2021.  If you want to get IT done, now is the time.                                                    

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You may be blessed with a creative stroke of imagination this week as the Moon travels through fellow earth sign Virgo and touches on your creative child-like expression.  Uranus in Taurus brings about the unexpected, so keep your imagination fueled and pick up on subtle signs that may come your way.  The simplest signs are often significant pointers.                                                                                            

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Venus remains in Gemini this week, so grab onto that lingering charm and see what comes of it.  Your sociability reigns supreme and this should be an excellent time to endear yourself to others.  Charm is your operative word and if you can spin that in your favor you may be able to open doors otherwise closed.                          

CANCER (June 22-July 22): Mercury is now direct but lingers in Cancer.  Emotional topics and those that center on the home and family are the most prevalent to you.  You may be planning for the future together and sharing what that looks like.  The time is ripe for such discussions.  There are still powerful changes happening in your relationship so use diplomacy.         

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Even though the Sun is shining on you by the end of the week, you should not get too cocky.   Your hubris could be your downfall.  Pride goes before a fall, eh em.  Just a nudge to keep yourself in line and practice a bit of humility especially regarding your health and well being.  Don’t tempt fate.                    

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Employment options do look good, but with a cost.  The pressure you feel to be creative may undermine your self confidence, which is the exact opposite of what you want or need.  The time has come to step up and cast your fate to the wind.  Take risks and see what happens.  Honesty will prevail.                    

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):  You could feel a touch emotional late in the week, although sentimental might be more appropriate.  Nostalgia is a wave of memories that sweep over you as recent events trigger the past.  Your primary relationship may be what inspires you and tips the scale in that direction.  This is a great time to heal from past wounds. 

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21): Physical fitness is a vital part of our personal maintenance and with your ruler, Mars in Aries, you may be driven to find the right outlet that benefits your health.  Conversations that surround your role in a large organization may be key to your advancement and stature.  Documentation and legal matters may be a tough chore this week.                                               

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Pay attention to your creativity this week.  That, plus children may play a significant role in your week.  How would you merge the two of those concepts together?  And what would that manifest?  Long term dreams and plans for the family are a top priority but should not be rushed.  The answer will arrive in due season.                                                                                                                                   

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You are in the midst of an existential shift this week and going forward.  Think of this as a jump into the river.  When you are in the river, you must go with the current and accept its course.  In your gut you know this is right.  Manifest destiny has your back and you should give in willingly.                            

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):  Keep an eye on your home and family this week as unanticipated events could unfold there.  New opportunities are exciting and they may herald a shift towards a new era for you and yours.  With the Sun staring down at you from across the zodiac, you have great power at your disposal this week, so use it wisely.                        

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Neptune in PIsces is a complex arrangement, where reality often disappears into a veil of confusion.  Use this opportunity to evaluate your path.  Are you headed in the right direction?  Are your goals in accordance with your dreams and potential?  Are you simply biding time?  All worth considering.  Make decisions after much thought.
