SUNscopes for the week of July 5

July 3, 2020

All Signs: Does it feel like things are stalled in the water? Well, it so happens that five planets are retrograde right now: Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto. Oy! (I’m sure this is why I can’t seem to lose weight.) The good news is this week Mercury retrograde is over, at least technically. Yay!…

All Signs: In astrology, Mars represents energy – all kinds of energy including sexual and militant aggression. Mars is the ruling planet of Aries; and Mars is in Aries only once every two years for about six weeks. But lo! What news from yonder modem breaks? This week Mars enters Aries to stay for six…

June 19, 2020

All Signs: Most people know their sign from a horoscope column or a coffee mug. However, you might not know your “sign” is actually the sign that the Sun was in when you were born. Your first breath is your astrology chart. But hey, your chart has other planets, as well: the Moon, Mercury, Venus,…

SUNscopes for the week of June 14, 2020

June 11, 2020

All Signs: This week two notable planetary aspects occur. Mercury officially goes retrograde. (Aagghh!) Meanwhile fiery Mars will dance with Pluto, which is powerful because these guys don’t mess around. This particular dance is mutually supportive so there will be a swelling of energy and purpose. (Hide the silver.) Mars and Pluto are surprisingly similar….

June 5, 2020

All Signs: Every few decades, Saturn and Pluto align; but this year, they lined up in Capricorn for the first time in 500 years. Capricorn represents governments and structures in society (plus borders). Five hundred years ago, the agent of change was the moveable printing press, which spread information leading to the Protestant Reformation, the…

May 29, 2020

All Signs: Pluto takes 250 years to cycle the Sun. Pluto and Saturn are now less than 5 degrees apart. This began in Dec. 2019 and lasts for the rest of the year. (The last time they were lined up in Capricorn was in 1518.) Capricorn is the sign of the government; it symbolizes “structures”…

May 22, 2020

All Signs: Please note: Mercury will be retrograde from June 18 to July 12. However, there are buffer times because Mercury slows down ahead of time; then afterwards, it takes time to catch up to where it was at when it went retrograde. The buffer times are June 4 to July 27. Mercury retrograde is…

May 15, 2020

All Signs: This week the Sun changes signs and moves into Gemini for four weeks. Everyone will feel this shift of focus in their chart; in fact, it will be hyped because Mercury and Venus are already in Gemini. This signifies an increase in daily activity and chatting over the fence as more people venture…

May 8, 2020

All Signs: “These are the shadows of things that have been.” Charles Dickens wrote these words in 1843. By the end of this week, four planets will be retrograde – Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto. (In reality, they always move forward in space; but in astrology, relative to Earth, they appear to be moving backwards.)…

SUNscopes for the week of May 3

April 30, 2020

All Signs: We’re staying at home, for everyone’s good, but it’s tough. First there was novelty, funny jokes and clever videos. Then the frustration of living in each other’s faces. Then boredom, angst and ultimately depression. But it’s encouraging that Saturn is in Aquarius. It was in Capricorn from 2018 until the end of March…
