FORECAST: Weekly Astrology July 23, 2018 by Chris Flisher

The week begins with the Sun’s ingress into Leo. Leo is a bold, charismatic, creative, and fixed sign. As mentioned many times, a fixed sign is one of four signs in the zodiac that adhere to a rigid thought process. Like Scorpio, Taurus, and Aquarius, Leos are strongly opinionated and often immoveable in their convictions. The Sun is the ruling planet of Leo and it is clear when you meet one that they are anything but shy and tend to command the attention of all in a room. They are one of the most powerful signs of the zodiac. This particular journey of the Sun in Leo is met with a lot of rather inflammatory planetary activity especially as the week comes to a close. The most prominent alignment comes from the opposition of retrograding Mars in Aquarius. Oppositions bring out a collective tone that can have a wide array of influences including rashness, impulsivity, aggression, and irritation, but also excessive energy, creativity, courageousness, and a strive for power. When we look at the world’s stage we can clearly see the makings of such a theme developing. Mercury is also in leo and it may inflame the conversations even further. With the leaders of major countries gathering to discuss world topics we can expect to see the rhetoric cranked up considerably during this period. For more detailed information contact me at or

Aside from the Sun’s ingress into Leo we also have a full Moon lunar eclipse occuring at the end of the week as the Moon stands in opposition at four degrees Aquarius. This particular full Moon has the potential to be quite raucous in its manifestation. We know full Moons are often responsible for explosive events, but this one may exhibit extreme volatility. Any time the Moon is involved in a cosmic event there exists the potential for an emotional exchange. Add to that volatility, the fiery warrior, Mars, in close proximity to the full Moon and we can easily imagine a clash. Of course there are no guarantees, but the potential remains clear. To soften the potential we find Venus currently in service-oriented Virgo, forming a harmonious connection to Pluto. Pluto represents transformation. When taken in connection to the full Moon we might see this manifest as a pivot towards a necessary shift. Change often requires the upset of an established pattern. If the established pattern is destructive this influence may bring about a necessary shift toward a more grounded outcome. It is wiser to go with the flow of the river of time than to struggle against the current, realizing that resistance is futile.

Review all documents carefully.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Relationships are prominent for you this week, especially those that are closest to you. You might be overly motivated to state your case and that may backfire if you are not more circumspect. Words carry weight and they can be quite powerful is used wrongly. Best advice is to pause before you blurt out your true thoughts.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Keep an eye on your health and some of your routine daily habits this week. There is much that can be gained, but you have to be precise in your pursuit. Re-read everything that concerns your well-being and job duties especially. You might receive word from a sibling whose comments possibly throw you off guard.
