SUNscopes for the week of April 26

April 24, 2020

All Signs: At the beginning of this week, clever Mercury will be at odds with stern Saturn. Admittedly, this will encourage feelings of loneliness and depression in many of us. (Expect a spike in the sale of sour pickles.) Nevertheless, like a rabbit out of a magician’s hat, Mercury suddenly lines up with wild, wacky…

All Signs: An astrology chart looks like a pizza cut into 12 slices. The planets “fall” into different slices (according to when you are born), and this describes who you are. Some people like to stay at home. Some sleep at home, but mostly they pop in and out to get things or change clothes….

April 9, 2020

All Signs: Power struggles are likely this week because the Sun is at odds with Pluto. This forces us to make radical changes in our lives. We have to let go of patterns of behaviour that are no longer valid. (Hey, if you keep holding on to a hot pot — you burn your hands!)…

April 2, 2020

All Signs: Capricorn is the sign of government and the status quo. The last time Pluto and Saturn lined up in Capricorn was 1518. (The beginning of the Protestant reformation and break from Rome, which was a big deal.) This configuration brings financial problems, shortages and government restrictions of freedom of movement, as an old…

March 27, 2020

All Signs: In these scary times, many of us wonder what we can do to help, especially from home. I received an email saying some people on Vancouver Island were starting to meditate-pray at 8 p.m. Pacific time every night for 20 minutes (or how long you want). It’s a chance to stop and take…

SUNscopes for the week of March 22

March 19, 2020

All Signs: Pluto in Capricorn is lined up with Jupiter. (This last occurred in 1771.) Capricorn represents organizational structures. Meanwhile Pluto is the planet of regeneration and extremes, and Jupiter magnifies whatever it touches. Neptune in Pisces is classic for hidden viruses. Neptune rules hospitals, “prisons” and chemistry. (Neptune was last in Pisces from 1847-1861.)…

SUNscopes for the week March 15

March 12, 2020

All Signs: This week Saturn leaves Capricorn (the suits) where it’s been since 2017, to enter rebellious Aquarius. (“To the gates!”) Saturn will be in Aquarius for only three months, then return to Capricorn to stay until the end of the year. (When it leaves, it will not return for 29 years.) This means the…

March 6, 2020

All Signs: On Monday, Mercury retrograde ends and silly errors reduce. (Yay!) Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto continue in Capricorn, an influence that strengthens the status quo. But on March 21, (Spring!) Saturn enters Aquarius. Quelle difference! Saturn in Aquarius will challenge the status quo. But not yet. It will be a whiff in the…

SUNscopes for the week of March 1

February 28, 2020

All Signs: As I write this, it is the first day of the Tibetan New Year. (Yes, we had Jan. 1; then the Chinese New Year, and perhaps other new years I don’t know about?) But this Tibetan New Year makes me think of beginnings and endings. There is an old poem: “The end of…

February 24, 2020

All Signs: Here’s the lay of the land for this week. (Actually, it’s a picture of the skies, but we are down here on terra firma, aren’t we?) The Sun is in Pisces, Mercury Retrograde is also in Pisces, Venus is in Aries and Mars, Jupiter and Saturn are in Capricorn. I will touch lightly…
