At long last, I’m able to hit the keyboard without searing pain in my shoulder…I got a total shoulder replacement in January and it’s coming along well, and I can type again! I’m thrilled to be back and want to thank you all for the well wishes and kind words of encouragement and good wishes.
Down to business. Yes, I’ve been keeping track of what the planets have been doing and things are right on schedule out in the wild. Nothing I’ve seen in the news so far has been a surprise, nor has the timing. We should see things toning down a bit toward the end of the month, but boy, it’s been wild!
A lot of what’s been happening has to do with the collective consciousness and that is ruled by Pluto, to an extent. Pluto takes almost 250 years to complete an orbit around the sun and our country is in the throes of its Pluto Return, as I have mentioned before. Very recently, Pluto moved into Aquarius from government-oriented Capricorn. Specifically, this change took place on March 24. Pluto will retrograde back into Capricorn on June 12, where he will remain until January 21 next year. For this window of time, we can get a glimpse of the collective consciousness and things previously hidden coming to the fore. Pluto is not a personal planet but does affect individuals in the birth chart. Anyway, expect more blowback, rebellion and a push for progress in the next couple of months and expect voices to be heard.
For this week, the Sun and expansive Jupiter come together in energetic Aries, denoting fast growth and a real push for expansion. Mars is in Cancer, not his favorite sign to be in, but he is well aligned to Saturn in Pisces so compassion rules out over impulsive emotion. Empathy runs high now. It’s a good time to seek counsel if needed. Venus in swift thinking Gemini is in an argument with Saturn and that’s never pretty, but it is a fast transit lasting only a few days. This alignment cautions us to watch our words more carefully and not assume that we are understood just because we have said something resembling a structured sentence. It’s a time to watch our words more carefully and up the kindness factor.
Keep looking up, stay healthy, and…
Keep looking after each other!

Aries (March 21- April 19): Your Ruler Mars is in watery Cancer at the moment and in a very nice alignment to stern Saturn in Pisces. This has you focusing on long term goals of emotional significance. There is a good chance you’re making gains on those goals due to the Fun in your sign coming up to conjoin benevolent Jupiter in your sign. The only risk here is burnout from so much excitement (or stress) that you lose sleep or don’t have enough down time for all the work you’re putting into your project. Another potential bug in the works may be financial; Venus in Gemini (Thinking/Communication) is squared up with Neptune in Pisces (Endings/New Beginnings); this may mean you’re going to have to rearrange your thinking to connect yourself to the resources you need to meet the goal, such as going outside of your normal circle of support.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): This is a time of new beginnings and with the Sun and Jupiter so close together in Aries (Endings/New Beginnings), you have a lot to pull up from the recesses of your mind and heart to move forward and greet the season with. Your Ruler Venus is in Gemini now (your sector of Finances/Resources) and in a difficult angle to Saturn in Pisces (Friends/Goals). You may be facing some financial stresses now. It will resolve soon due to Venus’ fast movement and your dogged determination and ability to quietly get your own way when push comes to shove. All in all, everything is doable.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): The Sun and Jupiter in Aries (your sector of Friends/Goals) are conjunct each other and creating some really good vibes for you in terms of your social circle and forward movement. Venus in your sign puts on the brakes a bit in a difficult angle to Saturn in Pisces (your sector of Career/Social Life). You may feel a bit uncertain regarding melding two aspects of your life into a compatible working system. This uncertainty won’t last long so don’t get overly stressed about it. Venus will move out of this angle this week and you’ll gain clarity. Pluto in Aquarius is acting on your subconscious as well, seeding it with new and innovative ideas that will come to light when it’s time. A favorite saying of mine is/ “Pay attention to what you are paying attention to!”
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Mars in your sign gives you a blast of energy now, bolstered by Saturn in your companion water sign Pisces (your sector of Partnership, Things Shared). You may feel like your personality is too big for your body right now! You have a lot of energy to burn so you are no doubt busy getting your crib in shape for summer and spending as much time outside as you can. This week is a good one for productivity all the way around. The Sun and Jupiter in your sector of Career/Social Life also give you a big boost in terms of longing for more social time and perhaps palling around with coworkers or fellow students. The only fly in the ointment is Venus in Gemini (your sector of Endings/New Beginnings) in a difficult angle to Saturn. You may receive news from a former partner or friend that you really don’t want this week. Don’t let it throw you though…your initial reactions can be very strong. Breathe!
Leo (July 23 – August 22): You’re meeting yourself coming and going right now due to the Sun and Jupiter in Aries (your sector of Travel, Expansion). If you’re not the one in movement, then others close to you are. Either way, you have your hands full right now with very little down time. This will calm down by the end of the week, thankfully. In the meantime, Venus in Gemini (your sector of Friends/Goals) is in a difficult alignment to Saturn in Pisces (your sector of Creative Expression, Children). Again, once this week has passed, the stresses will ease and you will have more time for socializing. Pluto in your sector of Partnerships has you passively thinking about the closest people in your life and what they bring to the table.
Virgo (August 23 – September 21):It’s been a crazy busy time, and this week you’ll be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. The crescendo is this week with the Sun and Jupiter in Aries coming together in a conjunction, affecting your sector of Partnership/Things Shared and putting a lot of energy in that direction. Venus in Gemini (your sector of Career/Social Life) is in a difficult angle to Saturn in your opposite sign of Pisces (Marriage/Close Relationships). It looks like you’re really juggling a lot right now with multiple things pulling you in different directions. Life I said though, this week is the crescendo and then it will calm down. Hopefully you’re looking after your health and finding good ways to destress.
Libra (September 22 – October 23): Your sector of Marriage/Close Relationships is glittering now with the Sun and Jupiter conjoining in Aries this week. Can you say “intense”? Looks like you and your sweetie are making great gains now. If you’re in a relationship, the urge to make things more permanent might be now, and it’s a rather good time to to that as long as both of you keep your heads together. For you single Libra natives, your focus is on companionship whether it be human or pet. You may be in the market for a new companion animal or the adventure of meeting a new person with the potential to become a companion. Venus in Gemini is causing a bit of a stir now though, in a difficult angle to Saturn in Pisces. This affects your sectors of Travel/Expansion and Work/Health, respectively. You may have difficulty comprehending that someone as detached as you are might be lonely, but look again. Admitting it isn’t so bad.
Scorpio (October 24- November 22): What a time it’s been! This week is the light at the end of the tunnel, finally! Currently, we have the intensity of the Sun and Jupiter conjoined in Aries (your sector of Work/Health), so much of your energy is directed inwardly now as you stoke those inner fires. Venus in Gemini is arguing with Saturn in Pisces right now and this puts a cramp in your sectors of Partnership/Things Shared and Creative Expression/Children. Looks like a logjam is happening where there should be a flow, but don’t get worried about it as it will only last a few days due to Venus’ fast transit. The biggest news for you is your Ruler Pluto having recently entered Aquarius (your sector of Home). Pluto will retrograde and go back into Capricorn, but right now you’re getting a clue of what is to come on the home front. Pluto takes nearly 250 years to complete an orbit around the sun so this is a big deal.
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 20): You’re pretty occupied these days with your Ruler Jupiter and the Sun being conjoined in energetic Aries (your sector of Creative Expression/Children). Perhaps you’ve pulled a hobby off the back shelf or you’re starting a new project. Whatever it is, you’re happily engaged in something that is meaningful to you. Your social life could use a bit of glitter though…at the moment Venus in your sector of Marriage/Close Relationships is at odds with Saturn in your sector of Home and if you’re attached, this could create strains between you and your sweetheart this week. Fortunately, this is a fast transit so it isn’t a long lasting thing. Just choose your words carefully (both of you) if there is conflict about something. Mars is in homey Cancer, (your sector of Partnerships/Things Shared) and in a lovely alignment to Saturn, so perhaps it’s time to host a dinner party soon for your besties.
Capricorn (December 21 – January 20): Mars in your opposite sign Cancer is in a lovely alignment to your Ruler Saturn in your sector of Thinking/Communication. This puts your closest relationship as your highest priority now; it looks like a dream is being built somehow. The Sun and Jupiter in Aries (your sector of Home) reveals a lot of energy being spent on the home front; possibly a move or a major improvement is under way. The only thing to watch for this week is Venus in Gemini (your sector of Work/Health) in a difficult angle to Saturn in your sector of Thinking/Communication. Issues around your job or your health may hit muddy waters if communication isn’t clear and concise. Be sure everyone is on the same page.
Aquarius (January 21 - February 20): Of course the biggest news for you is Pluto entering your sign! This brings a whole new dimension to your psyche now. While Pluto will retrograde and go back into Capricorn for a while, you are getting a sneak peek of what it’s like to have this stealthy slow mover in your sign. The Sun and Jupiter in Aries bode well for you in your sector of Thinking/Communication so it’s likely you’re taking up a class, a course or workshop that involves a lot of correspondence. Venus in Gemini is also normally very good for you (Creative Expression/Children) but at the moment Venus is in a difficult angle to Saturn in Pisces (your sector of Finances). This indicates that money is in a fluid state for you, and you may be frustrated by a lack of real stability or by empty promises of advancement. Look for relief very soon because Venus will move out of the angle this week.
Pisces (February 21 – March 20): The times, they are a-changing! Now spring has sprung, the Sun and Jupiter are both in Aries putting you in a real moneymaking mood, and Saturn in your sign is arguing with Venus in Gemini (your sector of Home). Fortunately, this argument is short lived and won’t even last the week. You may feel a bit off for a few days though. Energetic Mars in your fellow water sign Cancer (your sector of Creative Expression/Children) is getting along famously with Saturn, so your juices are flowing in terms of thinking outside the box and bringing the invisible into the world. You’re all about possibilities, and you get to focus on your own right now.
