LOOKING AHEAD TO AUGUST:

The Retrograde parade gets another cowboy to join this month as Uranus appears to back up in the heavens on August 19 joining Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto — table for five. The idea here is be very cautious making long-range and one-time decisions and deals as conditions may change in a big way once these big planets return to direct motion.

        Meanwhile, there’s excellent energy in the heavens to tackle the important details and small stuff you’ve neglected this Summer. Most helpful is that Venus and Mars begin August in analytical and efficient Virgo, an earth sign ruled by intelligent Mercury. Virgo also rules our pets and this pair makes the entire month a good time to take the kitty to the vet and/or to get a new puppy or kitten.

        Save any decorating or beauty treatments for the days when Venus travels through artistic Libra. This once a year three + week cycle of charming Venus traveling through her home sign begins on August 15 and will end when Venus enters Scorpio on September 10. Venus in Libra also kicks on the green lights for all social plans, reunions and meeting new friends and romantic possibilities. Air signs Libra, Gemini and Aquarius especially.

        This is an exceptionally good month to purchase a car, computer, phone or any high-tech equipment. Start comparing prices and equipment early in the month. Mars in Virgo amps up your ability to research a purchase and when he trines Uranus, ruler of everything electrical, on Aug 20-21, you are very likely to purchase something that fits your needs and that will last (yes, cars are ruled by Uranus—internal combustion engines need a spark and won’t run without a battery and electricity).

LOOKING AHEAD TO JULY:

We begin the month with four planets in Retrograde: Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto. Just enough reverse motion to slow things down a bit this month. Jupiter’s power of expansion is dimmed; Saturn’s ability to make realistic and practical observations is also a bit weaker. Use caution in making major changes this month.

      The Boss is on center stage as we begin July. Mars is traveling through bossy, egotistical but also generous Leo and gets into some trouble setting up the most difficult days of the month: July 1 and 3.

      Impatient Mars opposes slow moving Saturn on the 1st which can bring a frustrating situation or encounter—not a good day to make your case to the boss. The most dangerous day in July is the 3rd when Mars squares Uranus in Taurus—problems with cars, computers, electrical stuff and rebellious wildcatters are more likely when these two planets square off in fixed signs. A big change in our energy and the Skywatch occurs when Mars enters analytical and somewhat shy Virgo on July 28. This is a good example of how the signs are arranged. Every sign follows the opposite kind of energy. The Fire and impatience of Aries is followed by the mellow stubbornness of Taurus followed by the quick reactive mental energy in Gemini followed by the emotionally charged energy in Cancer, the sign of the Mother.

      Loving Venus is also in romantic and playful Leo at the month begins. She will meet aggressive and passionate Mars in the heavens on July 13. Could be love and romance finding you then, impulse buying or finding the way to start something new in your life that is positive. Mars has the power to help you begin something; Venus makes it easier than you thought. It’s an excellent day to show a kid how to ride a bike, start a new beauty regimen or make a favorable investment of time or money. It will be another two years before this pair again meets in the heavens. Venus also enters reliable and practical Virgo on July 21. As times change.

      Good news on July 4. The Skywatch is upbeat and excellent for your celebrations with both Venus and Mars in party sign Leo. Mercury is in home sign Gemini on this date helping us all speak up and communicate our ideas. Mercury enters Summer sign Cancer on July 11 which is three weeks late—expect temperatures to rise as the weeks roll past.

      And Jupiter backs out of water sign Pisces and into air sign Aquarius on July 28. Jupiter will continue to Retrograde until October in Aquarius and will enter Pisces again for a yearly visit at the end of December.

LOOING AHEAD TO JUNE:

Caution flags are flying this month for two reasons. First, Mercury remains in the confusing Retrograde cycle until June 22. And remember this one is in Gemini, one of Mercury’s home signs. That means this one is likely to be more difficult than other Rx cycles and is more likely to give us problems with all the machines we use to travel and communicate with. Tow truck owners are likely to be busy while Mercury backs up on the bases.

        A bigger problem this month is a big time square between dependable Saturn and irresponsible Uranus on June 14. Squares are powerful aspects in the Skywatch and this one is extremely stressful as these two planets rule Aquarius, the sign that Saturn is in right now. Saturn is the tester and Uranus rules unexpected events/changes. Cars and electrical devices are ruled by Uranus. All are more subject to malfunction in June, especially with Mercury Rx at the same time. How things go in your life this month depends on how you handle this extra load of stress. With perseverance and determination many people will grow stronger by overcoming difficulties and holding tight to their path and responsibilities. You will also see other folks overcome by unusual emotional tensions and strains who give up, rebel and engage in acts of violence. We all have a choice as to how we handle all the elements, good and bad, in the Skywatch. Best then to keep your schedule as clear as possible the first two weeks of June as the square begins to power up. Capricorn and Aquarius birth signs especially.

        The Retrograde lineup continues to grow. Saturn and Pluto are both Rx as we begin the month. Jupiter joins the list turning Rx on June 20. Neptune will also Retrograde beginning on June 25. Rx planets bring a time to review your plans and thinking looking for ways to improve both. They also generally slow down the pace of events in our lives, especially Jupiter who rules the process of expansion.

        More sign changes bring new energy to the heavens. Venus enters homey Cancer on June 2 setting up a stellar three-week period for family reunions, fixing up your home and cooking something marvelous. Venus enters playful Leo on June 26 turning on the party lights. She is joined by eager Mars who begins the month in Cancer and enters romantic and fiery Leo on June 11. Leo energy is creative and fires up the child inside all of us to come out and play. Fire signs Aries and Sagittarius will probably be leaders of the pack with this much Leo energy drifting through the heavens.

LOOKING AHEAD TO MAY:

Stay committed to your path and challenges. Astrological skies are friendly through most of May.

      There are more good days than troublesome this month. But get the important stuff done as early in the month as you can BECAUSE Mercury will again turn Retrograde on May 29. And this one could be a doozy as Mercury enters home sign Gemini on May 4. Mercury is the ruler of the winds and in home sign Gemini we can expect extreme storms and weather conditions while Mercury backs up on the bases until June 22. People often say things they wish they hadn’t during Mercury Rx and this will be happening more than usual, and with greater backwash, in this Rx window. Be very, very careful with anything important you communicate or promise—misunderstandings will be common.

      We add another planet to the Retrograde list on May 22 when dependable Saturn appears to back up in the heavens. Rx cycles prompt us to review and revise our plans and actions. In this case we need to review our responsibilities—too many, too few? And to work on balancing these extremes in our life and times. Saturn also rules our ambitions and this is a window of time that lasts until October 11 to review our methods and processes for reaching those goals. Saturn makes this Rx cycle every year and is especially important to Capricorn birth signs ruled by Saturn, and to Aquarius folks whose sign is co-ruled by Saturn.

      The biggest change in the Skywatch in May is Jupiter leaving Aquarius for a short spell on the 13th and sailing into the waters of Pisces. This is a good switch as Jupiter is the co-ruler of Pisces, along with spiritual Neptune. So Jupiter gains power and encourages a more spiritual attitude in all of us, also opening our awareness to our psychic and intuitive energies. Pisces is the sign of nurses and we are all likely in some way to be called into service while Jupiter swims in the sign of the Fishes. The visit will be brief as Jupiter will Retrograde back into Aquarius on July 28 but will return for a yearly visit to Pisces starting in late December. This is a beneficial change for the other water signs, Cancer and Scorpio.

And here is an added bonus this month: These are found in each month's pdf. Become a member and enjoy this added value.   

MAY KISS DAYS: 2, 6, 11, 12+, 28, 31. The 12th is a day of Grace and contains only positive markers. Something positive in the heavens also appears on the other days—use them for priority calls, appointments and meetings.

LOOKING AHEAD TO APRIL:

Keep your foot on the gas. We are now in a rare period of time in the Skywatch when all planets are traveling direct in motion in the heavens. This means there is little up above to slow you down or complicate your plans. Problems that arise then this month are more likely to come from your actions rather than others. Pluto will turn Retrograde on April 27 but his Rx cycle doesn’t really slow us down at all. So this is a very good month to tackle high priority matters and to get involved with others in work and play.

      Three different planets change signs this month and all can be helpful. Spring weather may be a bit late this year as Mercury, ruler of the winds, doesn’t enter Spring sign Aries until April 3, which is almost two weeks later than usual. New ideas and plans are likely to be born as Mercury runs through charged up Aries. This is the placement Einstein had in his natal chart and part of the reason he was so brilliant in coming up with new ideas and concepts. Mercury is the speediest of all the planets and he will finish his run in Aries and enter Taurus on April 18.

      Venus begins the month in Aries, not her favorite sign, but she enters earthy Taurus on April 14 and will remain in the money sign until May 8. This sets up a stellar window of time to make financial decisions and to buy and sell property and the accumulated stuff in your garage. Having Mercury also traveling through Taurus until he enters Gemini on May 3 will help you make good decisions and investments.

      Likely the most notable planetary change this month will be feisty and energetic Mars leaving Gemini and entering emotional Cancer on April 23. Mars can be crude and rude; Cancer is ruled by the Moon and is extremely sensitive, getting her feelings hurt with less than a whisper. As always, we need to use this Mars energy so it won’t use us. Mars has muscles and this period of time that lasts until June 11 is a very good one to put energy and work into your home and surroundings. Cooking new dishes that delight is also a good use of this energy—Cancer rules the stomach. However, eating when you are emotionally cranky is likely to upset your tummy, too, during this Mars cycle. So paint the room now and get your garden in order. Mars enters Leo when the Cancer period ends and Leo wants to party and have fun, and you’ll be ready.

      APRIL KISS DAYS: 1, 6, 10+, 15, 22. The 10th is a day of Grace and stellar for work or play plans. The 22nd is a very good day for buying a car, computer, new phone or all high tech stuff.
