FORECAST: Weekly Astrology May 18, 2020

The Sun enters Gemini this week.  Gemini is a mutable air sign and is known for a bubbling personality with a  wildly exciting imagination.  Never short for words, ideas, or actions, Gemini’s are incredibly creative, spontaneous, and are often capable of accomplishing many things at the same time.  Quick-witted and clever, this chirpy air sign is not known for depth of a subject but rather a breadth of knowledge drawn from a wide array of sources.  Fellow air signs, Libra and Aquarius are likely to be friends and easily stimulated by the hyper-active Gemini.  Venus is currently sitting in Gemini and slated to go retrograde on the 13th where it will remain until late June (24th.)  Venus retrogrades for roughly 40 days and 40 nights (sound familiar?) and it offers us an opportunity to reconsider our relationships.  Like any retrograde period for any planet, these are times of rethinking, revising, and realigning our lives, our loves, and our aspirations.  And, of course, we have all the time in the world do it now, right?  So maybe we should consider this cosmic love pause as a chance to show our appreciation to those we love and who love us.  Where would we be without them?  And who would they be without us?  See?  Reciprocity.  Love is the answer.  Where is that happening in your life?  Contact me at,

By the end of the week we will have a bevy of Gemini activity.  Mercury and Venus will be bumping into the same degree and the chatter is likely to be effusive and filled with a sense of appreciation and compassion.  Sometimes it is only when we lose something that we truly measure its worth and weight in our lives.  The other interesting theme for this week is the nodal shift from Cancer/Capricorn angle to the Gemini/Sagittarius angle.  The nodes of the Moon are critical markers for cyclical events.  The nodes change signs every 18.5 months and are always in opposition.  This change will shift our emotional outlook and our mode of connection.  Whereas the Cancer/Capricorn axis presented us with topics of the home and family (isolation) the Gemini/Sagittarius axis will introduce the topic of purpose and meaning.  As we sit isolated in our homes and parked into our heads, we may be naturally drawn to this theme as we stop to ponder where we are and where we are going?  It isn’t until the conversation starts that the action begins to emerge.  Once we start the dialog and address the deep thoughts,  will the doors open to a natural solution.  This is all part of the natural cosmic process.  Where will you feel it?  If you have questions about your own unique destiny contact me at,, or

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Despite the amount of air (Gemini) influence this week, you should be careful about closing any doors.  Impulse may be running high and you could easily react to something erroneously.  That hair-trigger temper of yours could be your worst enemy especially with close friends or partners.  Be aware.  Be quiet.  Be humble.  If possible.                                                

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Expect to have conversations about your role with other co-workers.  The subject of money will likely be a part of the talk.  There is a tendency to fly off the handle, so try and keep your emotions to yourself and find a slow, logical and methodical approach to resolution.  If your case is solid, you will be too.                                                                                       

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): The spotlight is on and your bird can sing.  The Sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus (retrograde) are all moving through Gemini, so you are a natural ball of exciting energy.  If you can use this opportunity to inject yourself into topics of self-promotion, or taking on more responsibility, you may be able to get what you seek.  Jupiter and Pluto are watching so do a good job.                       

CANCER (June 22-July 22): This should be a good week to begin conversations about what is next for you.  A new job?  A new project?  You may be eager to expand your skill set in some manner.  Does that mean education or training?  Challenges continue with long-term relationships but there is great wisdom to be learned there.         

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Train your attention on projects that involve group participation if possible.  Collaboration is a key theme for you this week as four planets stack up in that arena in your world.  You may be on the brink of a significant change with regard to work and finding partners will be useful in that pursuit.                  

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Job prospects are lighting up your chart this week.  Your ruling planet, Mercury is in chatty Gemini along with the Sun, Moon and Venus, now id retrograde.  The time has come to take some steps towards expressing yourself in some manner.  Creative pursuits seem to fit the bill, but only you know how to define the outlet.           

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): There is much activity this week in fellow air-sign, Gemini.  Mercury, Sun, Moon and retrograding Venus are all clustered there.  This week presents you with an option to reach out and travel or learn.  Since travel is limited due to current circumstances, you might do better to engage in some armchair travel instead.                                                   

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21): Expect to be fully engaged in large organizations.  Corporations, municipalities, universities and the like are all chock full of activity for you.  Thye energy is all about communication and presenting alternate views of approach.  The researcher in you would do well to engage in conversations that point to a legal or documentation topic such as workflow.                                          

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your primary relationships will be your area of focus this week as four planets stack up in that domain.  Subjects may range from a division of responsibility to a reorder of accountability.  Discussions may involve financial investments or shared resources so be prepared for that to emerge.  A reconsideration of forward progress may be under discussion.                                                                                                                             

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your eye will be drawn to work this week.  Work and your wellbeing are foremost topics for the coming time.  As you continue to work on your own personal growth, you might be eager to throw your effort into employment.  Daily habits figure prominently in this capacity, so exercise, diet, and habitual patterns are all on the table.                           

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):  Saturn has stationed retrograde in Aquarius and will soon back out of your sign and into Capricorn for a brief period.  You may be on the cusp of a dynamic new shift in direction.  Your creativity is being piqued by the current Gemini planetary cluster which could lead you to discussions about what works best for you.               

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your domestic scene may be first and foremost this week as four planets gather there.  You may be in the process of discussing plans that involve the family and your residence more broadly.  Challenges continue with business alliances so be sure to get some closure in that area.  Strive for work life balance going forward.
