As we have collectively entered Aquarius season (Jan. 19 – Feb. 18) there’s been a party happening with the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, and Saturn all in the “Water-Bearer” constellation. In astrology, the gathering of three or more celestial in the same constellation is known as a stellium. When a stellium exists, it results in an overpowering of energy from that specific constellation. A stellium in Aquarius results in an energy that is Fixed (unmovable), Air (mental), and Masculine (external/outgoing) in its nature. An Aquarius stellium also brings more original and independent thinking into play and a desire to unite and bring more creativity and community to our outer world. These energies are available to us at this time.

When Saturn and Jupiter left Capricorn and moved into the Aquarius constellation, they set a new tone – a new era – for all of us on Earth. To experience an Aquarian stellium at such a momentous time helps us fully understand what this new era is about and the themes and issues we are being asked to examine. This is a week worth paying attention to. Let’s get into it (and be sure to read all the days – even if they have past since together they form a more complete picture of what we will experience over the next 29 days):

MONDAY, JAN. 25: As we start the week we’ve got the Sun in Aquarius and our Moon in Cancer. The Moon is at home in Cancer and brings emotional and nurturing undertones. The Aquarius Sun, however, is at the same degree as Uranus in Taurus and this results in the temptation to share half-truths as a way to avoid confrontation or out of fear and/or a built-up anger that comes out unexpectedly.

When it comes to our anger, we all should keep in mind Mars has moved from the Aries constellation into Taurus resulting in a shift between “Youthful Rebellion” to a “Long-Time Coming Anger.” Before, the anger we experienced or projected onto others was similar to a toddler throwing a temper tantrum. Aries, after all, is the baby of the zodiac and known for a fiery temper that can go away as easy as it came on. Taurus, however, is known as the Bull and epitomizes “Long-Time Coming” anger. Taurus energy is known for being calm and patient, yet when a person with a natal Taurus Sun, Ascendant, or Mars finally gets angry it is truly a sight to behold. Mars in Taurus anger isn’t like confronting an angry toddler, but more like confronting an angry Bull with flaring nostrils and one horn already impaled into a Matador’s body.

“Mess with the Bull and you get the horns.” – Yes, it’s a movie quote (“Breakfast Club”) but still a good thing to keep in mind while Mars – the planet of action and aggression – is in the Bull’s constellation.

TUESDAY, JAN. 26: Now that we have some #MondayMotivation to avoid getting impaled by a Bull, let’s go into the tension between Mars (in Taurus) and Uranus (also in Taurus). This tension between action (Mars) and rebellion (Uranus) needs to be personally kept in check this week, because it could show up in your life in a couple of different ways. For example, as the Sun nears Jupiter and the Full Moon (this Friday) Jupiter will be exalted and this can lead to an overestimation of our abilities, the telling of tall-tales, and an over and unmerited amplification of situations and emotions. The Sun is in a square to Uranus (resulting in tension) and Mars is in a square to Jupiter (resulting in more tension), so don’t be surprised at all if this week feels like a tug-of-war. The Bull (Mars in Taurus) is already flaring his nostrils, so keep the anger and passions in place now so you’re more prepared as the week goes on and more powerful and influential energies come in.

WEDNESDAY, JAN. 27: Venus and Pluto are hanging out together in the Capricorn constellation all week bringing heavy vibes. This clearly isn’t a casual hang because Venus and Pluto are deeply focused on what is authentic, secure, and aligned with what has real meaning and value to us. Perhaps you’ve found yourself examining your life and relationships in this same heavy way. Venus rules our loves, our partnerships, our money, and our creativity. On a personal level, Pluto is asking us to consider where we can transform and re-imagine in these areas. Keep in mind since Venus and Pluto are paired in Capricorn specifically there’s more suspicion and less trust. Understand this might amplify your viewpoint (also see above on Mars anger and know as Mercury moves into Retrograde at the end of the week it will actually help most of us look at situations with more reason, proper proportion, and accuracy). Today, as the Cancer Moon runs in opposition to Venus and Pluto the areas we need to transform will become more clear and continue to illuminate as we move into the Full Moon.

THURSDAY, JAN. 28: Tonight we experience the final Full Moon of the yearly zodiac cycle before we enter a lunar new year on Feb. 12. Besides being a Wolf Moon, this Full Moon has an axis and over 25 astrological aspects occurring at the same time. There will be a separate posts on all of the different stories the stars are telling us during this Full Moon cycle (it’s just that layered and fascinating so be sure to subscribe below so you don’t miss out). For now, though, let’s focus on just a few of the key stories during this next lunar cycle (apx. 29 days). For the past week our luminaries (Sun and Moon) have been trying to co-exist and take us collectively from dark to light. They have been moving into position and aligning with other celestial to shed light on the darkness we have overlooked. It is not until we fully confront the darkness that we can stand fully in the light, so the dark must come out in order for us to gain deeper understanding and start to heal. As the Moon grows full it moves into a perfect alignment with the Sun and Earth while allowing Black Moon Lilith to come into the trio, and this is where it gets very interesting. Black Moon Lilith is known as “the dark zone” and in this position we are likely to feel triggered to react without a full understanding. Over the next 29 days we will be confronted with the darkness we typically avoid and the Truths that have escaped us. “Trigger” is a key word for this Full Moon, and it is likely we will each be triggered in different ways according to our own situations and natal chart. But, the luminaries didn’t get all perfectly lined up for just personal reasons – there’s a collective lesson to learn here, and What The Stars Say is looking to Saturn in Aquarius themes to find out what the collective lesson might concern. Saturn in Aquarius wants us to face the consequences (for better or worse) of the reality we have created. But, it’s not just our own little reality as much as it is the reality we have created for the children on Earth and in our collective care. For far too long the adults have been too consumed with publicly fighting over politics, and it’s time the children caught in the middle received attention. We’re about to go into Black Lilith’s dark zone and face Saturn (Lord of Karma) and the Luminaries (both darkness and light), so be prepared for hard truths and karmic reckoning. It is likely the disclosures and darkness will be revealed over the next 29 days (lunar cycle), but full understanding might not occur until after Mercury leaves its retrograde cycle on Feb. 12. Again, there is temptation to feel triggered to react without full understanding and it might take weeks to gain a full understanding so aim to be the Bull who is chill and grazing on grass rather than the Bull charging at a Matador. Black Moon Lilith actually provides us with a calm to temper the Mars aggressive anger coming in, so tap into the lunar energy in order to receive hard truths and disclosures from a more serene and open space. It’s going to be a challenging lunar cycle for us all, and the more time you can spend in nature or just staring at the night sky and contemplating the more you’ll be able to successfully navigate the next month. Give yourself time to process information, and continue to bounce your ideas and concerns off a trusted friend.

Saturn recently moved from Capricorn to Aquarius and this is a shift from “corporate” to “collective” and from “I work” to “I know.” There is no finer example of this than within the own mythology of Aquarius as the “Water-Bearer” in the sky. Look at the image above, and consider this: The Aquarius water being spilled down upon us is not actual water, but rather ether. It is in the ether we are able to pull out ideas and solutions like magic. The ether actually is the magic.

FRIDAY, JAN. 29: Does the Wolf Moon have you howling yet? The galaxy is throwing optimism and information our way, but it’s up to us how we use the energy bestowed upon us. Jupiter wants us to expand and grow, but the transmission of this inspiration can also lead to over-estimation and lack of practicality. Mars – when triggered – wants us to charge onto the battlefield before we even understand why we are at war. Today’s Leo Moon in opposition to Mercury in Aquarius (while preparing for retrograde) also misleads us and tempts us to misuse our gifts, tell half-truths (or lies of omission), and act in a rash matter. This is all compounded by the other energies, so it’s vital each of us looks before we leap right now. It’s just too easy to rush out into the battlefield without understanding the battle. Be patient – more disclosures and information to better guide you is still on the way.

SATURDAY, JAN. 30: Today is a great day to get things done, and the Virgo Moon brings a “whistle while you work” mood to the day. The Virgo Moon trines both Mars and Uranus in Taurus giving us a boost of energy, attention to detail, and originality. It’s a great day to mix things up, walk backwards, and do something with your hands that makes you feel productive. Mercury moves into its retrograde cycle today where it will continue until Feb. 18. Remember the Aquarius Stellium we discussed earlier in the week? Well, it comes back into play here. Aquarius also rules technology and the Internet, so it shouldn’t be a shock to any astrologer to see the dialogue on where Big Tech and social media is heading come to a major fork in the road. These issues and conversations will only continue (and Saturn and Pluto have guaranteed tech issues will continue for the next two years), but in the far more immediate future because we have Mercury in Aquarius in retrograde it’s an excellent time to back-up your files, and to clean up and better secure your digital life.

SUNDAY, JAN. 31: This is the best day of the week to lay low and avoid the “triggers” promised with this week’s Full Moon. The Virgo Moon is in opposition to Neptune and the sensitive will feel hypersensitive, those struggling with addiction will feel more cravings, and many will come across as spaced out, insincere, and off balance. The Virgo Moon’s trine to Pluto in the Capricorn constellation can result in a reawakening of feelings within us and a desire to take off and explore the word, but this is a passing feeling and we each need to check ourselves for one-sided and off balanced thinking during this Moon. The day is best spend laying low, and checking in our loved ones who are struggling at this time.

FEAR isn’t necessary when you understand the cosmic timeline, yet fear is all around us right now – right on time, right on schedule. Is it a coincidence the “second wave” has come up under the same planetary placements as the “first wave?” Of course not, since Jupiter expands what its near and being near Pluto expands the PLUTOCRATS push for power and top down control and authority. When these conjunctions happen the energy emits over the following weeks and in 2020 we feel the push for control, the call for lock downs and for further restrictions. It’s happened throughout 2020 like clockwork. Consider this:

On Jan. 12, 2020, Saturn and Pluto conjuncted at 22 degrees Capricorn and this IMPACT will stay with us until 2023 – with a focus on DESTROYING broken systems, corruption, false idols/influencers/authorities. It is a true karmic reckoning. The three times this year Jupiter and Pluto have conjuncted (April 4, June 30, and Nov. 12) the energy has built up and continued over the following weeks and it hits on that exact 22 degrees Capricorn angle – a further expansion on the broken systems, corruption, and false “leaders.”

Since 2012 Neptune has been in the Pisces constellation and will remain until 2025. This placement varies for the individual depending on their natal placement is, but also depending on their personal spirituality. Neptune in Pisces is dreamy, imaginative, and deeply spiritual. But, there’s always another side and this same transit brings with it a downward spiral into addictions, lies, deception, and believe in complete illusions. Neptune in Pisces collectively is like the entire nation has been put under mind control – and this isn’t hard to identify in other’s if you’ve managed to maintain your independent thinking skills and don’t have a strong emotional or political charge and bias. Oh wait, most people don’t have these abilities anymore‚Ķso, now what? Well, the tiny man behind the magic curtain will appear and they’ll be forced to confront the lackluster “Wizard of Oz.” More to come as Neptune moves direct Nov. 28, 2020

Is your FEAR based on their FEAR? If you’re stuck in fear yet again, you are letting the PLUTOCRATS win and they’re so desperate for a win right now because they know their time is up. Consider if your fear is based solely on their fears. Consider moving from fear to LOVE.

Also, consider extending this LOVE to all of your neighbors and yourself. Later this week, Neptune will leave its retrograde in Pisces. It won’t be easy for so many when the cosmic mirror is directed back at them and they’re forced to confront not only their fears but the lies and illusions they believe in and cling to. More to come on this, but as What The Stars Say has previously shared this time – middle to the end of November – is a challenging and groundbreaking time. Choose your adventure and frequency wisely.

Another interesting week as we wind down 2020. This week, “The Shit Hits the Fan,” the transits ask us to get weird and original, and the weekend presents some challenging energy and passions…

MONDAY, NOV. 16 & TUESDAY, NOV. 17 – The energy of the Sunday New Moon lingers as the Moon lingers in the Scorpio constellation. This New Moon is about planting seeds for next Spring in our lives and manifesting long-term gains and goals. Mercury is nearby and as we awake and re-direct (from the planet of thought, communications, and messages backwards motion in Scorpio and Libra) we’re still examining our relationships, our Justice system, and uncovering secretive and deceptive actions. Venus is hovering above Mercury and visible on the eastern horizon right before sunrise, and it’s always beneficial to us when the planet of love, money, and creativity is visible to the human eye. However, Venus is in tension with both Pluto and the star Athena – this is an exploration of impermanence (death – mortality and immortality) so it’s not all that coincidental virus numbers are peaking at this time. What The Stars Say also pointed out recently (“The Shit Hits the Fan Today“) the Jupiter and Pluto conjunction would also bring the virus into the forefront again as well as power plays (thanks to Jupiter expanding Pluto’s Plutocratic energy).

WEDNESDAY, NOV. 18 THURSDAY, NOV. 19 – The Moon has moved into the Sagittarius constellation and floats above Jupiter and Saturn in the Capricorn constellation (with both planets visible for a few hours each night). With the North Lunar Node’s move into Sagittarius, perhaps this Moon is whispering to Jupiter and Capricorn about the future as both planets prepare to move into 0 degrees in the futuristic Aquarius constellation. Are you feeling an emotional pull towards your future today as well? Jupiter and Pluto’s merging in the sky continues and expands on issues of authority, top down control, and the pandemic issue overall. With the Sun’s sextile to Saturn you’ll likely feel more ambitious, focused, and able to complete difficult tasks – making this an excellent time to tackle any responsibilities and obligations you’ve been procrastinating on.

FRIDAY, NOV. 20 – Today is a day to think before you speak and be aware of your internal restless energies and impatience. The Moon squares both Mercury and Uranus so unexpected and disruptive communications are more likely. As the day progresses we’ll have more of a filter between our thoughts and speech, but in the morning we must be extra careful because we won’t have the same level of emotional detachment. This same Uranian energy can also bring forth creative problem solving, exciting and unexpected ideas and plans, and a general enthusiasm – as long as no one tells you what to do or think.

SATURDAY, NOV. 21 – Venus moves into Scorpio and awakens the Lover in us all. Yet, Scorpio is still examining the dark side since Mercury was in a retrograde motion in this area and the Sun in Sagittarius asks us to do some higher thinking and contemplate the impermanence of life (yet again – just like all the planets in Capricorn are asking us). What is the meaning of life? Is our life enough of an adventure? What’s the point and higher purpose of all of this? With the Moon in Pisces (a water sign) and Venus also in a water sign it’s likely to be an emotional charged time, so hopefully your emotions can go into positivism and passion – otherwise, don’t be surprised to find yourself binging on crime and occult documentaries at home alone with a highly suspicious and emotional charged viewpoint of the world. Perhaps being alone isn’t so bad considering a “Half-Moon” in Pisces can result in discomfort around others, public fights, and family problems.

SUNDAY, NOV. 22 – Remember the rebellious and disruptive Uranian energy mentioned earlier in this week? Well, it’s back as the Pisces Moon forms as sextile to Uranus in Taurus and gives us a boost in ambition. This energy wants us to find new methods, solutions, and to be determined in our goals while expressing ourselves in the most original way. Get weird today, and be happy doing so.

Are you ready for the whole enchilada? What The Stars Say has you covered with a ton of content covering June 25 25-July 5, the 2020 Retrograde Season (6 planets in retrograde this week!!), as well as a closer examination of how the Outer Planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune) are influencing the cosmic stories and themes of 2020.

As always, What The Stars Say begins with a look at where we’ve just been in order to help us seeing where we’re headed. A New Moon Solar Eclipse happened over the Summer Solstice (June 20/21) and at 0 degrees Cancer during Retrograde Season. This has us focused on self-love, our roots and home, and major life changes and new beginnings for us all over the next six months. (Click here for info for everyone / all 12 Signs). The July New Moon will be related to this Solar Eclipse, and Mars will hit on the exact eclipse point this Saturday (June 26) driving the message home and setting the stage. Check out the two new videos exploring the full energies of this week and a channeled message on the importance of the Outer Planets in our 2020 cosmic story. Then, check out the written information below giving you exact dates and movements of all the celestial bodies at this time. This information pertains to now until the end of the 2020, so feel free to bookmark this page and return to it as the year unfolds.

But first, gratitude! Thank you to all the new audience members and co-creators as well as our supporters and students we have found and connected with over the past year! What The Stars Say is grateful for your presence and participation. Feel free to send a private message about a personal session in July – spots are available!

The motto of the Outer Planets is “Adapt or Die.” In 2020, this motto is felt deeply on a global level. With 6 planets in Retrograde – including Outer Planets Jupiter, Saturn, and soon Neptune, we are asked to review how we have adapted and to collectively question whether we will adapt, how we will adapt, and if we will learn to live together or die alone.

So many cosmic influences and occurrences this year are posing the hardest and heaviest questions. We must address these questions while also questioning everything presented to us at this time (due to Neptune in Pisces and the series of conjunctions from Saturn, Pluto, and Jupiter). It’s exhausting and change can be difficult. As you review the past while working towards your future during this Retrograde Season, know changes can be POSITIVE. Focus on adapting in a way that focuses on what you WANT to remain. Put in the hard work required of this Retrograde Season – focus on cleaning up your own messes instead of the messes in other people’s messes.

Venus stationary direct June 25 and leaves retrograde zone June 29. This week she brings clarity and opens our heart chakra while urging us to return to our actions and emotions in April 2020. Venus also wants us to look at the deception, glamour spells, and illusions presented to us while she danced with Neptune in the sky from the Gemini constellation. Gemini rules media (traditional, new, social, etc.) and technology, so many will question what is “news” if what is presented to them is “Truth.”

Neptune entered its retrograde zone back in March but did not move stationary retrograde until June 22 where Neptune will stay until November 2020 and doesn’t leave the retrograde zone completely until March 2021. Neptune in Pisces has strengthened deception acts, resulted in a glamour spell being put over the collective, and urged us all to examine our personal and collective darkness and wounds. The trinity of eclipses (June 5, June 20/21, July 4/5) activate Neptune and Pisces. Illusions are presented to us while the Solar Eclipse confronts us with the Truth in our emotions.

Jupiter in retrograde zone until Dec. 6, and Jupiter remains in the Capricorn constellation until December 19 but the real action happens when Jupiter conjuncts Saturn on December 21, 20202.

Mercury is in retrograde June 22-July 12, and then leaves the retrograde zone completely on July 26.

The North and South Nodes are also dealing with their own cycles ending and beginning, as well as retrogrades. How this translates for us, is many people (with Gemini or Sagittarius Nodal placement within their individual birth chart) is a change of paths for many unfolding over the next 18 months. Collectively, the Nodes suggest international and long-term travel will be greatly impacted and short road trips are more practical. This Nodal shift coupled with the other cosmic influences occurring June 25-July 5, 2020) have the ability to result in a serious lock-down, impede state-to-state travel, and cause serious restrictions when it comes to international travel over the next six months. Gemini rules all transportation on wheels, so think airplanes, cars, and the shipping/logistic industries.

Mars moves into Aries – We’ve been confronting “authority” since the Saturn and Pluto conjunction in early 2020, and with Mars going home to Aries for seven long months we’ll be confronting “authority” on multiple levels, as well as examining our own passions and viewpoints on freedom. With Mars in sextile to Saturn, we’ll feel empowered this weekend called upon to know our selves, act in our integrity, and take on responsibility in order to gain great self-respect.

Uranus entered the retrograde zone in late April 2020 and will move stationary retrograde in August 2020 before moving stationary direct in mid-January 2021.

Pluto entered the retrograde zone back in January, went stationary retrograde in April 2020, and will not move direct until early October.

Saturn moved into stationary retrograde May 10 and will not move stationary direct until September 28. When Saturn moved into Capricorn we all experienced the authority and restriction Saturn brings in Capricorn – a constellation it rules. Saturn is dancing between Capricorn and Aquarius throughout 2020 until it finally moves into Aquarius – a constellation it traditionally rules (Uranus is the modern ruler of Aquarius). During Saturn’s retrograde cycle this summer we are asked to go back and “do over” events and themes from March.

This weekend’s Pisces Moon put many of us in a dreamy head space and brought forth some of the areas we need to re-examine during the 2020 Retrograde Season. The retrograde cycles of Pluto, Saturn, Venus, and Jupiter will continue to heavily influence us over the next six weeks. The cosmos is asking us to re-flect, re-consider, re-negotiate, re-juvinate, and re-align during these re-trogrades. Even though we’ve put put on “pause” already, we are being challenged both individually and collectively to re-turn to the table and consider what we might have overlooked, what we still need to overcome, how we can better heal ourselves, and to deal with the “elephants in the room” refusing to be swept under the rug.

2020, believe it or not, is a year filled with possibility and ripe with the potentially for re-birth and re-invention. The Retrograde Season that just kicked off last week is reminding us we still have more work to do and messes to clean up before we can re-emerge and be whole. On a collective level, we are still struggling for answers to serious questions and wondering how to re-build our communities and economies. On a personal level, we are still struggling with the confrontation of ourselves, our relationships, our life path, and the darkness that exists within ourselves and others. This week is a taste of the collective and personal confrontations we are being presented with over the next six weeks / during Retrograde Season. Although nothing is impossible this year, we’re being asked to “pause” in a variety of ways so we can personally and collectively heal and build something more equitable and lasting. The elephants in the room must be confronted, and if you don’t choose to pull up the rug yourself you might find the rug swept out from under you. It’s a “Choose Your Own Adventure” year, and the cosmos is encouraging you to swim with the tide rather than against it and to truly take the time and re-flect as needed. It’s a complete contradiction to the current situation and natural urge to move forward, but with so many celestial in backwards motion we just don’t have the cosmic support to power forward. The cosmos wants us to go back and re-view the details, consider what we are missing, confront the darkness on both a global and highly personal scale. It’s a waiting game, and we’re being asked to sit in the dark and finish up unfinished business so when the light overpowers the dark on Summer Solstice we can emerge into full light and build a life for ourselves that will truly last and offer far more balance and freedom while also re-aligning us with our path.

We have to go backwards along with the four celestial in our solar system currently “moving backwards” in order to truly move forward.

MONDAY, MAY 18: The Aries Moon urges us to move out of the daydream and into action, but action isn’t always possible during the Retrograde Season. The key to the beginning of the week is to pace yourself and to fight yourself rather than fighting with others.

TUESDAY, MAY 19: Mercury moves into the Gemini constellation and meets up with Venus at the same 21 degree relationship angle Venus held when she went into retrograde last week. Pay attention to all of your personal relationships today and where your internal dialogue and external conversations go. There’s a strong chance the topics and theme arising today are connected to what the planet of love and money wants you to focus on and overcome while she is in retrograde motion (until June 25). Mars (our action planet) favors acts of kindness and healing today.

WEDNESDAY, MAY 20: Welcome to GEMINI SEASON! The Twins have an amazing 2020 kick-off party planned with the Sun moving into Gemini and meeting up with Venus, Mercury, and a lunar node already in the twin constellation. In this “Choose Your Own Adventure” year, we can either choose the lower expression of this Gemini energy and act in duplicitous and shallow ways, or choose the higher expression and seek deeper connections while embracing the duality in ourselves and in others. Will we share gossip or will we share helpful and resource information? Will we be the “good twin” or the “evil twin?”

THURSDAY, MAY 21: The Moon in the earthy Taurus constellation and brings us some much-needed grounding as the Gemini Season party has lifted us all up in the air. Mercury’s conjunction to Venus today allows our head and heart to merge and be on the same page, and Mercury’s square to Neptune has us investigating any deceit or illusions we might be clinging to.

FRIDAY, MAY 22: The Moon feels left out of the Gemini Season kick-off party and is in a Void of Course (VOC) in the early morning before joining the Gemini party around 8:30 a.m. U.S. central time. This NEW MOON IN GEMINI is the late arriving guest to the party and forms a conjunction with the Gemini Sun before trining Jupiter and expanding the Gemini party and good vibes well into the night. The Sun is also in a harmonious position with Saturn giving us a realistic outer expression and the ability to build new systems, projects, and habits that last.

SATURDAY, MAY 23: The Moon offers us healing vibes with its sextile to Chiron while Mars’ alignment to Uranus encourages us to take a chance, make a step forward, and be adventurous and social.

SUNDAY, MAY 24: Have you decided which Gemini adventure you will choose? Today, take stock of the “good” and “evil” twins in yourself and in the people around you. Are you seeing yourself, others, and personal situations for what and who they really are? It’s easy to be deeply attracted to the fantasy and the illusion right now, and it’s also easy to overlook common sense due to a strong stirring and desire to connect with others at this time. Step aside and take stock today and make sure you understand all the players and the game.

“Be kind, rewind!” is the message from the cosmos this week as three planets join Pluto in retrograde motion and the emotional intensity of last week’s Super Full Moon in Scorpio continues to influence us.

MONDAY, MAY 11: Saturn – already in the Aquarius constellation – moves into retrograde as Mercury squares Mars; suggesting restrictions on both thinking and acting. In the Capricorn constellation, the Moon merges with Pluto and causes us to dwell on deep and dark matters while its fellow luminary – the Sun – sextiles Uranus and brings unexpected and possibly disruptive information to the table.

TUESDAY, MAY 12: “The Messenger” planet Mercury is in the Gemini constellation and forming a trine to Saturn as its moved into retrograde in Aquarius. This is a lot of Air energy and our thought process are connecting up with the future systems and realities possible when Saturn moves into its final Aquarian position on the Winter Solstice. Pay attention to your thoughts and any messages that come your way today, because there’s a good chance you’re receiving data related to where you need to go next and/or about something important you’re overlooking and need to review.

WEDNESDAY, MAY 13: Venus comes to a complete standstill in Gemini as the planet of love and money moves into Retrograde. Find out what this retrograde means to you in “Venus Loves You In 2020.” This retrograde takes place on the relationship degree (21 degrees) so today marks the beginning of many weeks where you will be asked to re-examine all of your relationships – friends, lovers, business, family, and (perhaps most importantly) your relationship with yourself. Mars also moves into Pisces and in this position we face a conflict with freedom. This is, sadly, an ironic conflict at this time considering we are dealing with issues related to human rights and justice, as well as dealing with personal freedoms at risk throughout the globe since the “solution” presented involves tracking every moment (the opposite of “freedom”), and millions are sheltering in place and questioning how and when they will move freely in their daily lives.

THURSDAY, MAY 14: While the 2020 Retrograde Season is asking you to love yourself, Mars’ entrance into Pisces is asking you to confront freedom (or lack thereof) and also to to confront yourself. This confrontation is supported by last weeks’ Super Full Moon in Scorpio where we are provided with the courage to confront the dark side of ourselves and others, as well as all of the skeletons in the closet. This lunar energy will last for weeks, and Mars in Pisces supports the same theme and emotional confrontation. Many will feel like burning the old down so they can re-emerge like a Phoenix – but this, of course, requires sorting through what to burn and what to keep. Challenge yourself to sort through your emotional closets, and know the cosmos is supporting you and providing the mental health needed to confront it all.

FRIDAY, MAY 15: The Sun trines Pluto and wants to shine a light on what is dark, what needs destroyed, and any deceit needing exposed. Mercury trines Chiron providing a wonderful time for emotional conversations and healing. This is a solid day to work things out with someone you’ve been having difficulty with. Jupiter moves into Retrograde in Capricorn providing a chance for many to expand their thinking, skills, and deepen their spirituality over the next few months.

SATURDAY, MAY 16: The Sun joins Mars and Neptune in Pisces while Venus is forming a square to Neptune that will last for the next week. While all of this Pisces energy can help us explore the depths of our subconscious and continue to sort through the skeletons in the closet, it is placement that is also conducive to escapism, addiction, and wanting to live in fantasy rather than reality. Strive for realism and responsibility today, but allow yourself some time to daydream and dig deep. Pay attention to your dreams tonight.

SUNDAY, MAY 17: The Sun moves into a harmonious position to Saturn while the “Lord of Karma” and “Father of Time” is in the quirky Aquarius constellation in a retrograde motion. This trine position lasts until Monday, and suggests more downloads/insight/data coming in as to how you can better align on your path and re-oriented yourself moving forward.

This week the main player is the trickster Mercury in its retrograde cycle, and although this cycle began last week it is this week we feel the full force of what happens when the planet of communications, technology, and travel is out of sorts.

On Friday night (Feb. 28), What the Stars Say will present the full astrology forecast for the month of March. Join us from 7:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. at Spiritworks. Tickets are available here.

MONDAY: Who turned on the FOG MACHINE? Fingers point to Neptune who is now in sextile with the New Moon in Pisces. It’s foggy, head in the clouds, and confusing energy. We’re feel pushed on the outside when we just want to focus on what’s inside and not be rushed or managed. The New Moon in Pisces occurred over the weekend, but it’s energy is with us as the week begins and we’re being asked to examine what holds us back and to dare to dream BIG.

TUESDAY: It’s important to watch for misunderstandings in emotionally delicate conversations today. It’s best to avoid such conversations all together, but if you happen to fall into one filter your speaking. The Mercury Retrograde and Pisces influences have us in a time ripe for miscommunications and misunderstandings. The FOG MACHINE is still turned on, and it’s in your best interest to focus on your business and to mind your own business. Just worry about yourself today.

WEDNESDAY: The Moon is now in the Aries constellation and Mars is action oriented in Capricorn. It’s all forward movement, but today is a horrible day for forward movement. Lay low. There are about 3-4 days of the year where the celestial create a formation with the Mercury Retrograde that make it the worst time for missed connections, breakdowns, misunderstandings, shady deals, misleading information, and a need to read the fine print. This isn’t a day for anything new – it’s a day to review what is already in existence.

THURSDAY: The Aries Moon forms a square to Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto, and asks us to curb our impatience and chill out a bit. Instead of rushing take the time to pause, reflect, and read the fine print. In your personal interactions, challenge yourself to listen more than you speak and show patience to others. The Aries Moon is impatient and hot-headed, so be mindful of an urge to rush at others with your emotional needs and wants. Chill out a bit. (People born with a Cancer Sun really need to chill out since the Venus and Aries Moon combo will affect them strongly this week).

FRIDAY: The Moon shifts from the fiery Aries constellation into earthy Taurus, and feels at home as the day begins. This Moon energy makes us feel more comfortable in our own skin, and gives us a moment of emotional relaxation after a tense week. The Sun is in a harmonious placement to Mars (Planet of Action) in the hardworking Capricorn constellation, and Mercury (still in its retrograde cycle) is also in harmony with Uranus bringing unexpected thoughts and communication.

SATURDAY: Venus (Planet of Love, Art, Beauty) is at a square with Pluto and will cause some tension in relationships. Is the love your offering patient and kind? Venus is still in Aries and demanding instant gratification and attention, but if this is isn’t possible examine what is possible (and is it patient and kind?). Mercury continues to bring unexpected communications during its retrograde, making this a weekend ideal for hearing from an old friend, ex love, or distant family member.

SUNDAY: March begins! The Moon will shift from earthy Taurus to talkative and airy Gemini this afternoon, and bring us out of our inward focus and back into real communication with others. With the Moon at a square with Mercury we have to be think before we speak and be careful not to open old wounds or to cause new injuries.
