Why is it possible that our forecasts still can be wrong for you?
Because we only and solely delineate the transiting planets/bodies and midpoints that aspect your natal Sun WITHOUT taking into account any interference from any other natal planet/body (because we don't have your natal chart that contains much more planets/bodies and points than just the Sun).
If, for example, the transiting Jupiter/Uranus midpoint aspects your natal Sun, this may indicate a fortunate event -- which we will mention.
However, if, in your natal chart, Saturn aspects the Sun (which we cannot know), the meaning of this configuration changes completely and becomes more challenging and you may find our prediction to be wrong for you.
During this month of January there are no planetary configurations affecting specific birthdays.
However, stationing Uranus, which we will delineate below, builds a configuration that may affect some birthdays the whole month long.
The birthdays will be listed below.
Generally speaking, January 2, 3, 4 and 18 are "less lucky" days.
Try not to initiate any major projects on this dark, unfortunate, chaotic and empty day (no proposals, no marriages, no changes of residence,...) because things may not go as planned or wished.
Mars enters its own sign Aries around December 31 - January 1, suggesting the deployment of the armed forces (military and/or police).
Interestingly, 0° Aries represents "the new beginning" (in whatever way) and this "coincidentally" coincides with the start of the New Year.
Generally speaking, this means that the month of January 2019 will bring a new start for many people in many ways (career switches, changes of residence, marriages, births...); often involving "a first."
There is work at hand and lots of activities and/or initiatives are taken.
Particularly beware of head injuries and/or burns.
Around January 2, the Sun and Saturn conjoin at 11° Capricorn.
This sobering aspect often reflects some physical issues, down-time, a lonely feeling, restrictions, not being able to unfold properly and carrying kind of a burden.
Mercury enters Capricorn around January 4-5, suggesting governmental or official news or documents.
There are formalities to fulfill.
The January 5-6 Solar Eclipse at 15° Capricorn, a so-called "critical degree", suggests the need and urge to be "loved", to be in power, to be recognized.
It's kind of a cry for help and to be meaningful.
These influences manifest in different ways: some of you will become meaningful because of a planned marriage, others will promote or change careers, but those who are unable to manifest the urge to be meaningful or recognized, will feel down and should do the utmost to keep an uplifting attitude and overcome an empty and hopeless feeling.
According to the brilliant and meticulous astrologer and researcher Bernadette Brady, this Solar Eclipse is part of the 2 South Saros Cycle which is concerned with unusual groups and the individual's involvement with these groups.
The individual will feel that, through involvement with such a group, he or she will gain a great deal.
For some of you, there are unexpected financial expenses or losses likely as well.
This is the more so because around January 21, monetary Venus at 14° Sagittarius squares dissolving Neptune at 14° Pisces.
It's not only love that disappoints you, but also some expenses.
The waning Venus-Neptune square is a very tragic aspect in that it suggests an insatiable and frustratingly unfulfilled longing that looks for compensation into an artificial way by sacrificing oneself, building fantasies, taking alcohol or drugs.
The time frame around the entrance of the Sun in Aquarius, might be a very turbulent and busy one, the more so because of the Lunar Eclipse at 0° Leo around January 21 also.
This degree area points to some difficulties to let go the past, parental issues (for whatever reason), chaotic living circumstances, increased emotional turmoil and upsetting outbursts, separation or divorce, "short circuit behavior", panic attacks, heart issues and/or conception.
As Lunar Eclipses are Full Moons during which things get more out into the open and awareness increases, emotional upsets are likely to happen.
Additionally, still around the January 21 Lunar Eclipse, Mars at 13° Aries also squares Saturn at 13° Capricorn.
This waxing square indicates aggressive and brutal force.
This can be a very harsh aspect, pointing to very hard and tireless work that often involves overtime and pushing beyond the limits.
Around January 21-22, Mercury at 29° Capricorn opposes the mean North Node of the Moon while Venus and Jupiter conjoin at 16° Sagittarius.
All Mercury-Lunar Node connections indicate restless and highly busy times for sure.
It's hectic with lots of noise and buzz going on.
Venus and Jupiter together at a loving degree suggest pleasant encounters, nice gifts, gatherings and/or purchases for some of you.
16° Sagittarius is a very public degree suggesting announcements regarding love and romance (pregnancy, childbirth, marriage, a proposal, an important love encounter etc.).
Mercury at 28° Capricorn squares Uranus at 28° Aries around January 23.
This waning square brings a lot of unexpected events or news, unrest and nervous tension.
This aspect may suggest sleepless nights and traffic or air accidents.
You can be contrary and change opinions easily.
Following astrometeorology, Mercury-Uranus squares are often linked to heavy wind and even storm here and there.
Around January 26, Mercury enters disruptive and unpredictable Aquarius, emphasizing strong convictions.
There is a crisis or emergency situation going on and some peculiar and surprising situation gets your attention.
Expect increased tension and some of you may even face a mental breakdown.
Breaking news about a scandal or fraud may mark the news headlines.
There is a lot of buzz going on and people are very talkative.
The Sun and Mercury meet at 9° Aquarius around January 29-30, implying news about a merge, bond, connection, relationship or (business) partnership.
Mercury enters Pisces around February 10, the sign of its detriment.
There is some secrecy about certain documents and/or some documents get lost.
Communication may lack some structure or direction and you may more easily feel confused.
Beware of misunderstandings, not seeing things clearly or in a distorted way.
Check the facts yourself as good as possible.
Around February 13, Mars and Uranus meet each other at 29° Aries, a so-called "critical" (ending) degree.
While any Mars-Uranus combo is accident-prone, indicating physical injuries, upsetting or disturbing events and explosive or shocking outbursts of whatever kind, 29° Aries adds some more turmoil to the mix.
Add to this all that Mars is the dispositor of Uranus too and you get a highly disruptive combo that might bring quite some fireworks.
Actually, 29° Aries indicates an existential crisis that activates primal survival instincts.
It's likely this conjunction may trigger some natural disasters around this period, aside from other accident-prone mundane events.
Be prepared that your plans and/or agenda can be changed overnight.
Add to this all Venus at 24° Capricorn opposing the mean Lunar North Node around February 24-25 and we get the picture of letting go someone, the farewell or end of a bond, the cooling off of a relationship and/or withdrawing yourself and/ or reassessing your social life.
Also, your finances have to be taken a closer look at as well.
There can be a death or painful relationship reversal.
Beware of some dramatic accidents or experiences.
Because generational body Pluto and the Lunar Nodes stay close together, their influence will last for quite some weeks (and beyond this month) so that this aspect rather indicates a background "mood" or atmosphere.
Mars enters mutable Gemini around March 31 and suggests more arguments, numerous work-related short trips, and mental or cerebral activities (like reading, studying, writing,...).
Following mundane astrology, more (public traffic and/or transportation) accidents may be noticed.
Around April 12, Mercury at 24° Pisces squares stationing Jupiter at 24° Sagittarius while the Sun at 22° Aries squares the mean Lunar Nodes.
Most Mercury-Jupiter aspects tend to exaggerate in expressing views or opinions.
Speeches may become blunt and there may be some misunderstandings.
Beware of financial losses, expenses and legal documents.
Following astrometeorology, this aspect may indicate windy weather.
You may face a setback, minor health issues, and may feel alone also.
Around April 13, the Sun at 23° Aries squares Pluto at 23° Capricorn.
Actually, mid April, the Sun is the apex body of a T-square because it squares the opposition between the Lunar North Node and Pluto.
Hence, this astrological configuration suggests imposing one's will onto others or being under the influence or force of others.
Mid April marks a period full of power conflicts.
Venus at 24° Pisces squares stationing Jupiter at 24° Sagittarius around April 16, resulting in expenses, bills to be paid and/or financial losses.
Too much of a good thing is never good and this aspect is all about exaggeration, overdoing, indulgence, extravagance, wastefulness and being involved in many "affairs."
Mercury enters Aries around April 17 denoting a (surprising) message, news, document or letter about "a first", a (new) start, ...
There can be some confusion around though.
Mercury and Chiron conjoin at 3° Aries around the April 19 Full Moon, marking possible internet and/or power outages as well as electronics and electrical devices breaking down or malfunctioning and causing lots of disruptions.
The Sun enters stable and inert Taurus around April 20, emphasizing the importance of material and tangible goods, money, possessions and property.
Around the same day of April 20, Venus will enter Aries and try to find out how sexy and attractive one is.
Venus is the Sun's dispositor and when it, at the same time as the Sun's ingress into Taurus, enters Aries, it will mark an important day and shift for sure.
In the sign of its detriment, Venus confirms a period to pay bills, face expenses and/or financial losses.
In Aries, Venus loves action and adventure and is instinctively attracted to people who serve the armed forces (the military or the police).
The Sun and Uranus meet at 2° Taurus around April 22-23 and may cause a stir, a shock or disrupt the harmony.
This is the more so because heavy Pluto at 23° Capricorn stations and turns retrograde around April 24.
Anytime Pluto stations in an earth sign, it may cause some natural earth-related disasters (like earthquakes, earth-shocks, mining disasters, landslides etc...
Though Pluto is a slow moving generational body and affects the whole month, its station emphasizes its power manifolds.
Power conflicts in governments, corporations, the banking world are likely to pop up.
The ultimate goal of Pluto is always to revamp, transform, reverse a situation, organization, event or whatever...
It digs up what is under the surface and pulls down what is up.
Archaeologists will love Pluto's station in the earth sign Capricorn !
At 23° Capricorn, stationing Pluto creates restlessness, above all.
After all, this degree area is related to changes, restlessness, and things starting to move.
Whenever Pluto is involved, expect situations or events that have a HUGE emotional impact though.
When Pluto stations and turns retrograde, some mass events causing many casualties are to be feared.
Perhaps, this is so because Pluto rules death and also mass events.
Around April 27, Mars at 17° Gemini squares Neptune at 17° Pisces resulting in a lack of zest, not feeling too well or facing health issues.
17° in mutable signs is called a degree of "impotence", denoting that everything is currently at a standstill.
Around this last week of April, your actions can be a waste of energy and though some of you want to escape from some situation, it looks like whatever you do, it's just going down the drain or a waste of energy.
Some of you may dislike their work, get fired or just have to take a day off.
This waxing square in mutable (and double) signs depletes and disperses one's energy, opens the body for darker energies and negativity.
Try to take some more rest.
Saturn stations too and turns retrograde at 20° Capricorn around April 29-30.
People or events from the past may re-enter your world.
There are clouds in the sky though.
Actually, the attentive reader may have noticed that both Saturn and Pluto station around the same period AND are opposing the Lunar North Node.
Stationing Saturn is now very strong and powerful because it rules the sign it is in and it is stationary at the same time.
Capricorn traits will mark this month of April, suggesting events related to the earth (the Planet), governments, the corporate and banking world, construction work and buildings, the Establishment (authorities or leaders or royalties or CEO's), control, security and privacy, borders and fences, the elderly, austerity and restrictions.
Stationing Saturn at 20° Capricorn creates a distance and may point to the passing of a celebrity, CEO,...
Whenever Saturn and Pluto together oppose the North Node of the Moon, there is more emphasis on restrictions, feeling blocked, seeing no progress, issues with authorities, facing the passing of people (especially elderly people), increased or more intense power conflicts and turbulent events.
You might become discouraged indeed.
As long as both Saturn and Pluto oppose the Lunar North Node in the coming months, it's likely some hardship and suffering, restrictions and mass disasters or events will affect many.
This configuration is one of hindered developments.
Be aware that these heavy transits in Capricorn point to a period of transition and closure and only reflect the current "Zeitgeist" that will pass anyway.
Around the May 18 Full Moon, Venus and Uranus conjoin at 3° Taurus, suggesting love at first sight, enjoyable but short-lived encounters, but also seduction and possible infidelity.
For some of you, this conjunction at 3° Taurus will mark pregnancy and/or childbirth as well.
There is excitement in the air and you feel optimistic.
This Full Moon can be a very creative period, especially if you are interested in the arts.
Social gatherings have lots of appeal under this Venus-Uranus conjunction.
Saturn at 20° Capricorn opposes the mean Lunar North Node at 20° Cancer around May 20, which is actually influencing the whole month of May.
Issues from the past still pop up and result in delays, setbacks and even a standstill -- as if nothing moves forward and the time stands still...
Higher ups, elderly people, VIP's, celebrities and authorities as well as the banking world, governments and the corporate world will face profound setbacks during this exact aspect.
This opposition is not an easy one at all because it depletes the energy, is extremely conservative and wants to stick to the past whatever it takes.
It objects any innovation or progress, imposes censorship and strict regulations, closes borders, objects freedom at all cost, wants everything "strict and tight" and the like.
You get the picture of our current Zeitgeist by looking at this transit alone because it's so powerful.
In the personal life of people, it might indicate more issues with the bones, teeth, body structure, skin and might be related to other restrictive health issues hindering physical mobility.
More elderly people may leave the world during this transit.
The general outlook seems to be more negative now.
However, understand and do know that these influences will pass and try to look forward to the future when the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction at liberating 0° Aquarius late 2020 will mark the start of a totally new era that will bring HUGE progress in unbelievable ways.
Also realize that in a couple of years, transiting Pluto will enter innovative and future-minded Aquarius and will trine Uranus, its dispositor.
This will bring the opposite of all restrictions we are going through now.
Children born then with this powerful generational aspect in their natal chart, will bring HUGE and auspicious changes when their time comes.
Mercury at 18° Gemini squares Neptune at 18° Pisces around May 29-30.
With both planets in their own sign, this waxing square is very cunning.
There is possible disguise, theft, fraud, betrayal at work around these days.
No news, letters or documents can be trusted as they may be meant to just create a smoke curtain.
Around May 31 Mercury at 20° Gemini opposes retrograde Jupiter at 20° Sagittarius.
Here too, both planets are very strong in their own sign but Jupiter is retrograde.
Any opposition creates a distance and here beliefs, religion, foreign affairs, wide spread publicity, which are represented by Jupiter, are compromised favoring nearby trips or short travel, the neighborhood and more logic reasoning (represented by Mercury).
This is the opposition aspect of not believing in what is done or told but justifying it nonetheless using reasoning.
Anytime two planets are opposite each other and squared by a third planet, there is a T-square in the air.
So, late May, Neptune is the apex planet of a mutable T-square that involves Mercury and Jupiter as well.
Generally speaking, this T-square suggests the successful actor, playing games, extreme fantasies and to tell large stories.
This end of the month period may be all about the uncovering of some huge fraud or scandal as well.
Following astrometeorology, late May may be marked by lots of precipitation with the resulting troubles.
Generally speaking, June 17 and 30 are "less lucky" days.
Try not to initiate any major projects on these dark, unfortunate, chaotic and empty days (no proposals, no marriages, no changes of residence,...) because things may not go as planned or wished.
This month of June 2019 is above all marked by Jupiter, Saturn, stationing Neptune and the mean Lunar Nodes all being at the same degree in a sign (18°).
This configuration will be felt the whole month but especially or more powerfully from mid to late June.
Actually, all these planets and points build a so-called astrological Circulation Pattern the whole month long.
This astrological pattern suggests the need to manage some circulation, current, stream, flow or trends of whatever kind (traffic circulation and jams, water circulation and floods, energy current, fashion trends or other trends, the circulation of people like in mass protests, the circulation of information, etc.).
You may get the picture.
Hence, some sort of manipulation will occur by whomever this month to manage the circulation, trends, streams and/or currents in whatever way.
It should be clear that this kind of manipulation will likely interfere with privacy issues as well!
Aside from this astrological pattern, Jupiter, Saturn, stationing Neptune and the mean Lunar Nodes at the same degree in a sign (18°) suggest, among others, the following events or experiences to be part of this month, especially on a more personal level:
health issues (related to the liver and/or blood circulation and/or lungs)
damage to buildings and/or property because of water-related issues or higher forces
gnawing loneliness, pessimism
losing the will to fight
to be very upset with this world
to feel rejected or abandoned
the (financial) losses
to be unsuccessful
to lack self-confidence
to feel hopeless and/or helpless
to have the wrong perception or mindset
to have the wrong faith
to be egotistical
to lose too much weight, to be anorectic
to face financial restrictions or shortages
to be pissed of or displeased...
If your Sun is at 18° in a sign (which is the case if you are born around January 8-9, February 7-8, March 8-9, April 8-9, May 9, June 9-10, July 11, August 11, September 11, October 11-12, November 10-11 or December 10-11), these influences will affect you strongly this month.
Mercury enters fluctuating and home-loving Cancer around June 4.
Family talks, communication concerning real estate or related to the home or mother may be going on.
Venus enters mutable and double Gemini around June 8-9 and loves to be on the go.
Lots of short trips and communication with siblings and/or neighbors mark this period.
In unstable and changeable Gemini, the planet of relationships indicates lots of (superficial) contacts and small talks.
Around the same period of June 8-10, the Sun at 18° Gemini first squares Neptune at 18° Pisces and later on opposes Jupiter at 19° Sagittarius.
Hence, the transiting Sun is now building a mutable T-square in which stationing Neptune is the apex planet.
This T-square in mutable signs suggests the uncovering of a big fraud or betrayal, financial losses and/or expenses, health issues (especially related to the liver, lungs or blood), acting or some interest in movies, the severe cold shower, dissatisfaction and/or increased sensitivity.
Illusions tend to become disillusions, which is actually an indication of increased awareness, consciousness and insight.
Following astrometeorology, this T-square may indicate lots of rain or precipitation here and there resulting in some water-related issues.
Mars conjoins the mean Lunar North Node at 18° Cancer while also opposing Saturn at 18° Capricorn around June 14.
Regular readers of our monthly forecasts already know how "bloody" any Mars-Lunar Node aspect can be as it is so many times involved in accidents, shootings, physical injuries affecting groups of people or the masses.
So, this mid June period can be very accident-prone and violent, resulting in casualties and lots of physical injuries for many people at once.
There is separation and sadness around.
Some of you may be fired also and/or face the death of a family-member, relative or friend.
There are difficult and even harsh surrounding situations to face and tackle.
Around June 16, Mercury and the mean Lunar North Node meet at 18° Cancer while opposing Saturn at 18° Capricorn.
Separation, sadness and sad news still mark these days.
Some information (letters, documents, news) seems to be blocked or held back.
It's time to plan or organize something and go over some formalities.
Around the same day of June 16, Jupiter at 18° Sagittarius squares (stationing) Neptune at 18° Pisces.
While this aspect may indicate quite some rainfall, humidity and/or precipitation resulting in floods or inundations here and there, it has also a religious meaning because Jupiter and Neptune are both in their own signs.
This aspect often indicates carelessness and/or a lack of responsibility, indulging in alcohol and/or drugs and adds to financial expenses or even losses.
This square aspect is a rather lazy and passive one, often the result of some really huge disappointment, betrayal or fraud.
Around June 18, Mercury and Mars meet at 21° Cancer, marking a period of emotional arguments and turmoil.
Traffic and transportation accidents are likely to happen when the planet of transport and communication meets the planet of head-on collisions.
Physical injuries due to cuts are another possibility.
Mercury and Mars at 22° Cancer oppose Pluto at 22° Capricorn around June 19-20, blending to a forceful and stormy combo.
There can be severe and sharp criticism but also the ability to tackle the biggest projects.
Beware of blackmail and fanaticism.
Following mundane astrology, this brutal mid June is full of assaults, attacks, "bloody" revenge, but also about stormy weather here and there.
Neptune stations at 18° Pisces and turns retrograde while the Sun enters Cancer around June 21, resulting in some huge disappointment, delusion and confusion.
This is clearly not a time during which you will be focused and hence, mistakes are made easily.
There can be huge longings due to an increased imagination.
Following astrometeorology, stationing Neptune increases humidity and results in more precipitation and/or fog, often resulting in water-related issues as well (inundations, floods, heavy rain, etc.).
Around June 23, Venus at 17° Gemini opposes Jupiter at 17° Sagittarius while Saturn at 18° Capricorn opposes the mean North Node of the Moon.
Additionally, around June 24, Venus at 18° Gemini squares stationing Neptune at 18° Pisces.
Actually, Venus and Jupiter are currently part of a T-square in which stationing Neptune is the apex planet.
This T-square suggests, among others, a hopeless and/or impossible relationship, betrayal, the huge obstacles in love-related matters, to be taken advantage of, the loss of focus in a love bond, the unclear love situation, the musical interests and music performances, the huge artistic and/or creative drive.
The attentive reader may have noticed that around these days, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and the mean Lunar Nodes are all at 18° in a sign, affecting you in particular when you are born around January 8-9, February 7-8, March 8-9, April 8-9, May 9, June 9-10, July 11, August 11, September 11, October 11-12, November 10-11 or December 10-11.
When that many planets or points blend together, it's not easy to delineate the outcome at all.
Generally speaking, we expect monetary and relationship concerns (in the widest sense) though.
Around June 26-27 communicative Mercury enters Leo which may result in lots of talks and discussions.
In the fire sign Leo, Mercury has a voice and is able to speak out loud and clear, and abundantly too, even in a dramatic way at times.
Fiery Mars enters warm and dry Leo during the July 2 Solar Eclipse that takes place at 10° Cancer.
When a planet changes signs around a lunation, it marks a very sudden and often drastic change in the weather pattern.
Because of the warm and dry qualities of both Mars and Leo, chances are we enter a period of rising temperatures as long as Mars resides in Leo (warm weather and even heatwaves in July and August), falsely fueling the global warming theme and theories.
The July 2 Solar Eclipse at 10° Cancer belongs to the 3 North Saros Cycle which the keen and brilliant astrologer and researcher Bernadette Brady describes as a "over-excessive eclipse family."
The theme of this eclipse family is either related to news involving young people or news that transforms a situation.
The information can cause worry or can cause the person to become obsessive, she says.
The individual may want to undertake large plans or activities which can be very positive as long as the individual doesn't get carried away.
We have seen lots of group involvements in the past half year already, which was indicated by the early January 2019 Solar Eclipse of the 2 South Saros Cycle.
We have also seen that some young people are about to transform the world and this trend will continue for the next six months, and even become more powerful with the help of the July 2 Solar Eclipse.
Interestingly, the young climate activist Greta Thunberg is born on January 3 so that this Solar Eclipse will oppose her natal Sun.
Compare this to Julian Assange who is born on the opposite day, on July 3 and who will experience this Solar Eclipse conjunct his natal Sun.
Additionally, this Solar Eclipse at 10° Cancer is exactly conjunct the natal Ascendant of Pope Francis.
Pay particularly attention to the him and the Vatican for the coming half year, and especially in Autumn/Fall when the transiting Lunar North Node crosses this degree area and thus his Ascendant!
A North Solar Eclipse is always a very personal thing and marks (major) health issues, building a new identity, being enterprising and/or pushing through a personal agenda.
Looking at the degree signification of 10° Cancer, this Solar Eclipse may indicate
becoming more and more independent and developing yourself more and more
leaving home, the family or the mother
unexpected and even unanticipated pregnancy
rejecting "mother principles"
disagreements with the mother (grandmother or mother-in-law as well)
changing the outer appearance in addition with other relationship changes (like having a short haircut if you are a woman)
Venus enters home-loving Cancer around July 3.
Now is the time to do some home improvements or beautification.
In matters of love and romance, Venus in Cancer may cling too much to lovers but also enjoys lots of cozy times at home or in the family.
Around August 14, the Sun and Venus meet at 21° Leo.
Enjoy a gathering, socialize and enjoy this Full Moon period.
If you are born around February 10, March 27, April 11, May 12, June 12, June 28, August 14, September 29-30, October 15, November 14, December 13-14 or December 28, some highly intense love encounters and/or irresistible attractions can be experienced.
Not all of these encounters will be welcome because of the intensity and the force they bring forth.
Mercury at 6° Leo squares Uranus at 6° Taurus around August 16.
This waxing square indicates traffic issues and contrariness.
A sudden change of course, a sudden turn of events and/or breaking news can be expected.
Following astrometeorology, Mercury-Uranus squares suggest a period of heavy wind here and there.
Around August 17-18 Mars enters work-related Virgo, making that work is back on the agenda.
Some project needs meticulous attention and the minutest details now count.
Around these days, working alone is best, so to avoid distraction and to make sure you can focus on some menial tasks.
For some of you, there is separation from (a) co-worker(s) noticeable though.
A co-worker may leave the working floor or even be fired.
Also, expect some religion-related issues around August 19.
Venus enters service-oriented Virgo around August 21, resulting in both planets of love (Venus and Mars) being in the same sign Virgo the coming weeks.
These days, love may be found at the working floor.
Also, the love life of earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) especially will likely blossom.
The same is true if your Sun sign is Pisces.
Venus in submissive Virgo is rather reluctant and a bit shy in matters of love.
This makes for some inhibitions and difficulties in expressing emotions to others these days.
Around September 3-4, the Sun and Mercury conjoin at 11° Virgo while Venus at 17° Virgo opposes Neptune at 17° Pisces.
Early September may bring new encounters, new relationships and/or news from acquaintances and/or friends.
You tend to idealize someone, long for someone who is not present and/or who is not "available" just now.
Relationships are lived in the imagination or in a platonic way.
There is a huge longing for peace, harmony and beauty.
Some physical workout like dancing is one of the best things to do just now.
Around September 6, Mercury at 15° Virgo squares Jupiter at 15° Sagittarius.
This waning square with both planets strong in their own sign tries to keep up appearances and points to lots of information to be absorbed and learned.
There can be misjudgments and/or disappointments regarding beliefs, worldview and/or concepts that no longer seem to be valid.
Beware of miscommunication, gossip, hoaxes, exaggerating things or putting them out of context.
There is a small line with lies.
What's more, this waning square happens on so-called "critical degrees" (which all 15° in a sign are) and this aspect creates widespread confusion and hectic chaos, for whatever reason.
Legal documents play an important role early September.
In astrometeorology, this Mercury-Jupiter square may indicate heavy and even stormy wind here and there.
Between September 5-8, Jupiter is the apex planet of a mutable T-square that encompasses Mercury, Venus and Neptune.
This T-square points to high hopes, building air castles, engulfing in beauty, acting something out, love dreams, unrealistic expectations, illusions, among others.
In matters of love and romance, this aspect suggests unrealistic expectations.
This T-square is best lived in a creative and artistic way, denoting this period is best suited to listen to music, attend a concert, enjoy photography, act, write (love) poems etc.
Following astrometeorology, any planetary configuration that involves Jupiter and Neptune suggests intermittent periods of heavy rain, resulting in floods, inundations and other water-related issues alike (like drowning, maritime issues,...).
Also, following mundane astrology, and generally speaking, the uncovering of fraud or criminality may be part of the outcome.
Around September 7, Mercury at 17° Virgo opposes Neptune at 17° Pisces.
Here too, we find both planets powerful in their own sign.
Whatever planet Neptune touches, it represents something that is secret, that dissolves or vanishes or is kept hidden.
Hidden and/or secret or undisclosed documents, lost documents, theft etc. can all be part of the current "quality of time."
The Sun at 15° Virgo squares Jupiter at 15° Sagittarius around September 8.
This waning square points to a lot of exaggeration and overdoing.
A lot is bluff and ballooning behavior.
There is a strong focus on legal and foreign affairs and a desire to expand.
Looking at things more realistically seems to be asked too much.
The Sun at 17° Virgo opposes Neptune at 17° Pisces around September 10, marking a day of idealization and the disappearance or leave-taking of someone.
Between September 7-11, Jupiter is the apex planet of a T-square in which the Sun and Neptune are involved.
This T-square suggests a period of indulgence but also of passive resistance, creative imagination, successful inspiration, financial expenses and/or even wasteful expenditure.
Mars at 16° Virgo squares Jupiter at 16° Sagittarius around September 12, suggesting irresponsible behavior, lots of (financial) expenses and/or an immense problem that changes everything profoundly.
The degree meaning of 16° in mutable signs is a very public one.
Mars and Jupiter on this degree suggest legal issues made public, but also widespread public actions or activities going viral.
On a personal level, this may indicate births or marriages but also other beneficial ventures.
With Mars at 17° Virgo also opposing Neptune at 17° Pisces around the September 14 Full Moon, Jupiter again is the apex planet of a T-square that encompasses both Mars and Neptune.
You may have noticed in the mean time that Jupiter, powerful in its own sign Sagittarius, is the apex planet of a mutable T-square most part of September.
Mutable signs are "spreading signs", a significance that closely matches the expansive and outgoing traits of Jupiter.
Expect lots of things to be propagated, made public, published, spread... the whole month long!
Stationing Saturn at 13° Capricorn opposes the mean Lunar North Node at 13° Cancer around September 15.
This aspect remains active the whole month long but is now exact.
This aspect signifies issues with elderly people, higher-ups or authorities, the employer and/or boss, a father figure and/or people who have climbed the (social) ladder.
Illness and/or death may occur because of the restricting, "taking" and energy-draining influence this aspect represents.
Some people may be down a bit or feel lots of obstruction as if nothing moves forward really.
Health issues related to the teeth, bones, skin may occur more frequently now, but an increased risk of colds may be noticed as well.
If you are born around January 3-4, February 2, March 4, April 3, May 4, June 4, July 5-6, August 6, September 6, October 6-7, November 6 or December 5-6, life may be quite heavy and clouded, bringing some challenges and hurdles to overcome.
Around September 18 Saturn at 13° Capricorn stations and turns direct again.
We should not forget that this station happens when Saturn also opposes the mean Lunar North Node at the same numerical degree (13°) because it takes with it a collective meaning.
Saturn's station suggests detachment and even separation, often because of a death or distance with someone.
Stationing Saturn opposing the Lunar North Node emphasizes a highly conservative, strict and harsh period for some.
It's the aspect of tight attachments and tenaciously hooking to the past, to old behavior, trying to turn back the clock of time.
This aspect denotes the persistent unwillingness to move on, move forward and let go.
All actions and reactions are based upon old and even past ways of behavior and based upon censorship, restrictions, limitations, setting boundaries and building walls.
No worries though because in (late 2020-) 2021, liberating transits will start to manifest powerfully, slowly beating conservative and strict behavior.
Following mundane astrology, stationing Saturn in its own sign Capricorn is often related to collapses, things that tumble or fall down (be it buildings, cranes, ceilings,...), resulting in material damage.
However, the falling down has also to be taken figuratively with some higher ups being fired or taking leave, for whatever reason.
Big corporations, banks and the governments are in the spotlight because they are part of our world's structure and society (represented by Capricorn).
Around September 21, Jupiter at 16° Sagittarius squares Neptune at 16° Pisces, denoting periods of heavy rain here and there with the resulting inundations, floods or other water-related issues (like drowning or maritime issues).
Also, this waning square between two very powerful and strong planets (both in their own sign) suggests careless spending, financial expenses and/or losses.
Financial fraud is often indicated during Jupiter-Neptune aspects and it would thus not surprise if some new big cases are publicly revealed his month.
Generally speaking, October 3, 6 and 11 are "less lucky" days.
Try not to initiate any major projects on these dark, unfortunate, chaotic and empty days (no proposals, no marriages, no changes of residence,...) because things may not go as planned or wished.
Venus at 20° Libra squares stationing Pluto at 20° Capricorn around October 1.
This waning square suggests being submissive and/or following a lover blindly so to "receive" (enforce) love.
Whenever stationing Pluto is in the picture, some (extreme) force or power is involved, resulting in some clashes and challenges to overcome.
Love cannot be bought, nor can it be enforced or imposed.
You cannot be the slave or doormat of another nor can you sacrifice yourself to "please" another.
This aspect may go as far as sacrificing oneself completely "in the name of love."
Around October 3, Pluto stations and turns direct again at 20° Capricorn while Mercury enters Scorpio through the so-called "gates of death" (0° Scorpio).
Anytime Pluto stations in the earth sign of Capricorn, representing the surface, borders and boundaries, masks, fences etc., some earthquakes (or earth-related disasters) are to be expected around the station.
Also, when Pluto turns direct again, it is surely going to bring up all that it has been investigating during the past retrograde period.
Hence, stationing direct Pluto is going to reveal a lot of new information that was previously kept hidden, "below the surface."
It will likely be a time for new revelations and scandals.
When Mercury enters Scorpio, we have found this to coincide with severe train, traffic or other transportation accidents, resulting in many casualties.
Also, This ingress marks the beginning of some new chapter that needs regeneration.
A situation is cleared out to start over.
Mars enters Libra, the sign of its detriment around October 4 and suggests a period of difficulties in adapting to some external situation, to someone else or to some other people.
In the sign of relationships (in the widest sense), Mars battles over (perceived) injustices and legal issues may be on the agenda.
Arguments, discord and unrest might be part of your environment and/or experience as long as Mars is in Libra.
A more turbulent and separative period is indicated between October 5-9.
On the one hand, the Sun at 12° Libra squares the Lunar Nodes around October 6, while Mercury at 5° Scorpio opposes Uranus at 5° Taurus around October 7, the Sun at 14° Libra squares Saturn at 14° Capricorn around October 7 and Venus enters the sign of its detriment around October 8.
In short, during this time frame, the Sun builds the apex body of a T-square that involves the Saturn/Mean Lunar North Node opposition while Venus, planet of relationships and beloved ones (in the widest sense) enters the so-called "gates of death."
This is truly a separative period during which we will be urged to let go a beloved one in whatever way.
The Mercury-Uranus opposition reflects the breaking news, the telephone call or sudden news that will urge to change the mindset and bring new awareness.
You may prefer solitude, set yourself apart.
This period is about being alone, avoiding contact and/or keeping a low profile.
Mars at 11° Libra squares the mean Lunar Nodes around October 22.
Here we go again with a violent and bloody combo that is active in the 2nd half of the month of October.
Regular readers of our monthly forecasts already know for a longtime now that any Mars-Lunar Nodes aspect indicates violent and explosive events that affect a group of people and results in casualties and injured people (like mass shootings, tragic accidents etc.).
This is emphasized by the entrance of the Sun in Scorpio through the "gates of death" around October 23.
Some emotional turmoil is likely to be part of the coming days and weeks.
Intensity is likely to build up, resulting in more (emotional) upheaval here and there.
From October 26 on, the true Lunar North Node is at 10° Cancer, the degree of the July 2 Solar Eclipse.
Whenever the Lunar Node is at the degree of the Solar Eclipse, it will trigger and activate the meaning of the Eclipse.
Mind though that the mean Lunar North Node will be at 10° Cancer in November 2019, denoting that late October and November will trigger the Eclipse in many ways.
We, at Cosmic Technologies, have found the mean Lunar Node to be more important or powerful BUT we do not say that the true Lunar Node position is not important and it's possible we will see some indications of what November will bring or be about.
We recommend you read our July 2019 forecasts again to grasp the meaning of the Solar Eclipse.
Mars at 15° Libra squares Saturn at 15° Capricorn around October 27.
This waning square at so-called "critical degrees" is a difficult one and may bring hardship, heavy oppression, the inability to push through, censorship, fighting windmills, facing setbacks etc.
Health may be compromised as well and this aspect indicates dissatisfaction overall.
For some of you, there will be no work and you better take a day off in advance.
In some instances, this waning aspect suggests clashes and severe crashes (traffic or transportation accidents for example) too, the more so because of those critical degrees that suggest not being able to respect boundaries or some distance (literally or figuratively).
Expansive Jupiter enters restrictive Capricorn around December 2.
The entrance of Jupiter in Capricorn denotes a Capricorn stellium is now active (Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto now reside in Capricorn).
Till late January 2020 different planets and bodies will build an ongoing stellium in that zodiac sign.
During this period there will be a Capricorn "overload", denoting that Aquarians are going to face some hardship, health issues, and/or enter a treacherous period.
Indeed, Aquarians and Aquarius Ascendants may be held back, enter a puzzling period, feel not too well and may not always know how to alter the situations and restrictions.
Actually, this is a period of preparation and reevaluation.
Leos and Geminis will face great challenges and transformative changes while the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn itself) too are heading for a bumpy road.
If you are Taurus or Virgo, you may be better off because you will be able to handle things more fluently.
ALL Capricorns will face a milestone in life in 2020 that triggers profound and powerful personal changes (either in matters of health, relationships, career, family etc.) because the stellium will be active in their solar return horoscope that lasts a year.
More generally speaking, as long as the Capricorn stellium lasts, lots of Capricorn themes will enter the picture, either on a mundane level or on a personal one.
This configuration is especially powerful (and important) because Saturn, ruler of Capricorn, is also in that zodiac sign and thus disposes of all planets and bodies therein.
Saturn is in a waning conjunction with transformative, forceful and intense Pluto denoting that all Capricorn issues and themes are heading towards profound transformations that may be intense and emotionally also.
Expect a purge of some kind.
Capricorn is a builder, a climber and (re)construction work is likely to boom during this stellium.
Everything related to buildings, houses, and real estate will be in the spotlight.
The zodiac sign Capricorn represents the corporate and banking world, the governments, the higher management and leaders of state and they will try to impose their rules and goals upon society.
There can be an increase in regulations, privacy issues, setting boundaries and building more walls (literally or figuratively).
Capricorn is a very compartmentalized sign, dividing everything in a hierarchy, classes and ranks, order and structures and hence, this whole Capricorn stellium period will put the elite, aristocrats and higher-ups in the spotlight (for good or ill).
We expect a lot of higher-ups and celebrities as well as elderly to leave this world, be dismissed or step back.
This period is marked by austerity measures, increased conservative reflexes that freedom-loving people will not like at all.
Following astrometeorology, a lot of planets in the earth element, especially in Capricorn (representing the outer surface and "mask" of the earth), suggest an increased risk of earth-related disasters (like earthquakes, landslides, mining disasters, sinkholes etc.).
Also, Capricorn is a harsh zodiac sign astrometeorologically speaking.
This means that this stellium (till late January 2020) will bring a very hot summer (southern hemisphere) and a harsh winter (northern hemisphere).
As long as expansive Jupiter resides in restrictive Capricorn, it will not feel that well.
Jupiter always exaggerates, in whatever zodiac sign it is situated and in Capricorn it will vacillate between extravagance and disappointing realism.
Capricorn-ruled themes (like anything related to construction work) will flourish and expand though.
Jupiter always tends to overdo and may promise more than it can deliver, resulting in some huge disappointments.
Jupiter of law is likely to bring out more illegal (unlawful) stuff.
There can be large expenses as well.
As long as the dispositor of this stellium (Saturn) resides in its own sign Capricorn as well, there will always be a force that wants to suppress, restrict, limit and censor things, but when Saturn enters liberating Aquarius from late December 2020 on, all Capricorn influences, fences and restrictions will definitely be broken up in unstoppable and shocking ways.
Never forget we are heading towards a new ERA that will start with the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction at 0° Aquarius (the degree of the U-turn) late December 2020 (ending the 200 year long material earth cycle and starting a 200 year long immaterial air cycle).
Currently, most planets in Capricorn are in a waning phase of wrapping up.
Because of the nearing Saturn-Pluto conjunction (exact in January 2020), 2020 may mark the slow beginning of some "debt reset" or financial reset on a mundane level, one way or the other.
Around December 3, Venus opposes the mean Lunar North Node, suggesting a less sociable period of withdrawal, feeling misunderstood, reviewing your relationships (in the widest sense) and even letting go someone.
Financially speaking, this transit too tends to be sobering.
You prefer being alone, make home a cozy place and focus on artistic and creative projects.
The Solar Eclipse of December 26 at 4° Capricorn suggests, following the brilliant and keen astrologer and researcher Bernadette Brady, the sudden endings of associations or of a relationship, possibly with a younger person.
There is also a large emotional component, she says, as Pluto is involved and a sense of traumatic transformation (which can be through news received or short journeys undertaken).
At 4° Capricorn, this Solar Eclipse seems to denote that within the following 6 months there will be a new milestone in life with something dissolving or fading.
Someone might disappear, go missing or withdraw.
This degree area tends to show issues with adapting to some new situation and/or direction.
Some of you may feel less secure as lots of values and so-called "certainties" are slowly dissolving.
What has been learned and imprinted as "truths" in the past no longer work and you try to cope with unreal events in the background of outdated concepts.
Also, on a more mundane level, people may experience more metaphysical insights so that spiritual interests may increase.
Following astrometeorology, the Solar Eclipse suggests water-related issues (floods, maritime issues etc.).
Around December 27 the Sun and Jupiter conjoin at 5° Capricorn, which is a great transit but at a rather difficult degree of shocks and paralysis (out of fear).
Furthermore, this degree area suggests new awareness because of unknown or past forgotten facts coming to light (again).
There can be important archeological finds as well.
This conjunction is part of a cleansing period by bringing something in the consciousness and in reality (again) in quite a shocking way.
In some instances, this degree area is found in charts of (explosive) attacks also.
