Monthly Outlook

July 2020

Ignitions are turning. The Hanged Man is coming down from the tree. Clouds (and maybe crowds) are dispersing. Movement is beginning. Sort of. Life is still intense, but July breaks the mood of the past few months – and, importantly, the standstills we’ …

June 2020

June is a milestone month. The number of astrological events is relatively small, but each one of them is major. The combined effect amplifies the unabating structural changes we have been experiencing all year, as well as the past and primal issues th …

May 2020

May has potential for some movement at last. Don’t get out your running shoes, though. Forward movement is not the point. Or particularly possible. Romanticizing, idealizing and delusion waylay us at the month’s start, as the two guardians of love, Ven …

April 2020

April poses the question, “What now?” then forces out answers. And we’re not likely to respond alone, even with social distancing. The intensity that’s been building for weeks reaches a peak as the month starts. Everything is at maximum, from paranoia, …

March 2020

January 2020

January is named for the two-headed Roman god Janus, who looked forward and backward simultaneously. The namesake is especially appropriate in 2020. This January brings the intense culmination of processes that have been building for years, with revela …

December 2019

A focused, serious vibe permeates December and its usual hubbub. The year-end holiday season has us training one eye on the cost and the other on the long-term. Energetically and astrologically, 2020 is already starting, without the clink of champagne …

November 2019

November is an intense but not necessarily unpleasant mix of revisiting the past, tying up a cycle and looking to the future. It takes us back over old familiar territory in surprising, revealing ways that reshape what we thought we knew and ease the w …

October 2019

From the outset, October signals that we’re in a different phase. After the earthly striving amid (or despite) fog that September put us through, October treats us to fresh air and fiery sparks – and a Halloween parade that arrives early and hangs arou …
