FORECAST: Weekly Astrology May 20, 2019

Early in the week, the Sun steps into Gemini where it is joined by Gemini’s ruling planet Mercury.  When a planet is in the sign that it rules it takes on an elevated status and an exaggerated influence.  Since Mercury is the planet of communication, research and curiosity it should come as no surprise that we will witness animated conversations, a splash of sporadic news captions, and unparalleled chatter on the social media platforms.  This combination bodes well for all Geminis and Virgos who are ruled by Mercury as well as other air signs, Libra and Aquarius. By nature, Geminis are inquisitive and capable of accomplishing many tasks at the same time. While they often appear to be scattered and easily distracted, they are also able to keep many things in motion at the same time.  Since their primary skill is communication we can expect the entire planet to be a buzz, literally. Else where we see Uranus and venus together in Taurus. While Venus enjoys a special place in Taurus as its ruler, with Uranus in the mix we can expect to see surprises and perhaps an unexpected windfall or romance for many. As is always the case, these influences will pan out differently for each of us depending on the specifics of our birth data.  If you have questions about your own unique destiny contact me at,, or                                         

The remainder of the activity occurs in Capricorn where Saturn and Pluto are currently in retrograde motion.  Since these are both slow-moving outer planets the results of their impact will be long and drawn out. Both of these planets are considered to be the great correctors of astrology.  Saturn is bound by duty and accountability and forces us to confront our responsibilities and our survival. While In Capricorn we may be considering our basic foundational structures and weighing whether or not they serve us as they should.  This is an excellent time to research and revisit any area of our lives that require a course correction. Although this period may be experienced as arduous and serious, once we emerge on the other side of the retrograde we will come to realize the value of this transit.  With Pluto, the role and impact is considerably different. Pluto serves as a karmic manifestation and often delivers a solution that requires the reorganization of basic areas of our lives. Tearing down to rebuild is the motto and role of Pluto. What area of your life requires reconstruction?  While this may be seen as a great letting go of a worn out pattern, the bright light that emerges on the other side of Pluto’s influence may be worth the effort.
