From potential or prospect to reality, a completion reached, or an important deadline surpassed, the recent lunar eclipse has cemented the time-has-come moment in some significant way. What is destined to end, to begin, or to change form holds greater-than-average potency. Eclipse action will always accelerate the karmic side of relationships and circumstances.
What’s next? Through Sunday, the stars move along a fluid track. What is now setting in place will continue to unfold, evolve, and qualify itself in the days, weeks, and months to come.
Thursday, Venus/Neptune holds good promise for lovers, dreamers, creators, and rescue missions. The transit is also good for chilling out, but know it is easy to overspend or overindulge.
Friday, Mercury retrograde backs out of Leo to revisit Cancer. It’s an appropriate transit to prioritize home and family, to regroup or review, and for feeling the way along to a better comfort zone. Marking the halfway point of the retrograde cycle, Mercury and sun join forces. The day can shed a brighter light on a dilemma, an evaluation process, a money matter, or relationship wants and needs. It can also help you to clarify, to move past resistance (yours or theirs), and to get it better sorted out.
The sun in Leo, starting Monday night, boosts confidence levels and opportunity to create more of the good stuff. The week ahead is an active one for news, trendsetting, money, unexpected meet-ups, and people on the go. Building to Thursday, Mars/Jupiter, a take-flight transit, is good for marketing, putting yourself out there, fun-seeking, and for travels of body, mind, or soul.
March 20 - April 20
This week’s lunar eclipse has taken you over a significant threshold. Now that you have a better sense regarding what you are working with, you’ll gain better mileage out of creative endeavour and the opportunity at hand. Starting Friday, Mercury retrograde in Cancer loans you a better feel for where to plant yourself and how to play it next. Sunday onward, the getting is good.
April 20 - May 21
Giving in, letting go, or opening up is easier done through the weekend. Venus/Neptune sets an optimum backdrop for relaxation, romance, volunteering, and creativity. As of Friday, Mercury retrograde backs into Cancer. Over the next week, you’ll gain a better feel, a fresh insight, or greater incentive. Sunday onward begins an improvement curve for connecting, communications, and social and money matters.
May 21 - June 21
As of Thursday, the going gets easier, the rough edges smooth out (comparatively speaking). Finishing the month and its retrograde tour in the sign of Cancer, Mercury retrograde marks a good time to take a vacation, to regroup, resume, or get back in touch. Starting Monday, pleasure, opportunity, and reward are on the upswing. Wednesday to Friday keeps you well on the go!
June 21 - July 22
Venus in Cancer in trine to Neptune on Thursday can put you on the receiving end of hope, inspiration, or opportunity. It favours chilling out, taking a vacation, spiritual replenishment, creativity, or romance. Starting Friday, Mercury retrograde on a revisit of Cancer is also good for a regroup. The sun in Leo, starting Monday, and Thursday’s Mars/Jupiter kick it up a notch.
July 22 - August 23
A vacation or change of pace does you plenty of good. Time can evaporate through the weekend. Mercury retrograde exits Leo on Friday, but it will be back mid–next month. While Mercury retrograde in emotional Cancer stirs it up behind the scenes, the sun in Leo, starting late Monday, provides fresh fuel. Mars in Leo keeps the momentum building to Thursday.
August 23 - September 23
Whether it’s a sense and feel or a reality, as of Thursday you are over the hump and onto a next page. Letting go or taking it on, Venus/Neptune makes it easier to accept/embrace. On a backtrack of Cancer, Mercury retrograde aligns with the sun on Sunday and Venus on Wednesday. Both enhance intuition and your ability to connect, create, enhance, and gain.
September 23 - October 23
Coming off the eclipse action of the week, you can feel inspired or depleted. Through Sunday, don’t sweat it; aim for ease and simplicity. Mercury retrograde in Cancer, starting Friday, can stir up the emotions or the past. Don’t buy into fear, regret, or worry. Monday’s sun in Leo, Wednesday’s Venus/Mercury, and Thursday’s Mars/Jupiter are good for a boost in energy, opportunity, pleasure, and profits.
October 23 - November 22
Go with what comes easiest or is most readily available. There’s no need to force what isn’t coming naturally, especially through the weekend. Mercury’s backtrack into Cancer, starting Friday, is ideal for putting personal needs and family first; for travels of the body, heart, or mind; and for reconnecting with folks you haven’t seen for a while. Sunday through Thursday stokes expectation and anticipation.
November 22 - December 21
As of Thursday, the pressure is off. From here, you’ll gain a better feel for how to play it next. A conversation, plan, or emotional journey moves along a fluid track through the weekend. Leo month, starting late Monday, and Mars/Jupiter (on a buildup to Thursday) brighten your outlook and your prospects. Pleasure and reward are on the increase.
December 21 - January 20
Did the recent lunar eclipse hit you hard or put you in stop mode? Thursday to Monday, the stars move onto an easier, more fluid track. Venus/Neptune can defuse tension and create opportunity. If you experience further drain or loss, look to Sunday onward to offer you a reprieve, a second chance, and/or to set bigger wheels in motion.
January 20 - February 18
Thursday/Friday, the work and the working it out move to an easier-going track. Even so, there’s more to address through the weekend and the week ahead. Sunday onward helps you to do just that. By the end of next week, you should see a positive trend regarding a conversation, relationship, plan, or financial matter. Good news travels fast.
February 18 - March 20
Thursday, Venus/Neptune can inspire hopefulness, creativity, spirituality, romance, or compassion. On the other hand, it can be easy to lose your way or to overindulge. For the weekend, the Pisces moon makes for mostly smooth sailing too. Even so, you’ll feel a stronger pull, a tiger in the tank, or a momentum building from Sunday through next Thursday.
