Monthly Outlook

December 2021

The year is going out with a bang and a sigh. Stories that have been building all year or longer are hitting a climax – noisy, reality-rearranging, unmistakable. And then we’re dazed, maybe a little amazed, and mostly relieved. Two big processes are wr …

November 2021

November is a month of transitions. It promises more flips in perspective, revelations, and deepening of sagas that have been unspooling for months or more. It begins a slow-moving process of shutting down some cycles and launching a couple of years of …

October 2021

October starts out intense, lightens up a bit, then rolls back into intensity. There’s room for fun and adventure, too, and not merely of the amusement park ride variety. It may feel toward the end as if Halloween has come unmoored from the calendar an …

Astro-Insight for September 2021

All that work you’ve been doing? That effort you’ve been expending? It’s not going away; it’s going differently. And September proves that doesn’t have to be dull. In fact, this month, it’s anything but. We’re working smarter, digging deeper and, somet …

August 2021

May 2021

Welcome to Mercury Time! The quick-footed master of multiplicity, mirth, and mischief is taking the lead this May. He’s got quite the adventure in store for us: boisterous, chatty, increasingly fast paced and ultimately, not all as it seemed. The month …

April 2021

And we’re off! April promises significant activity, significant productivity, and significant gear shifts that push progress along. The way forward is fairly clear of traps and tricks, too, with little lying in wait until nearly the end of the month. P …

March 2021

March promises a gentler time than what we’ve been experiencing. We have the basic set up of the playing field before us. It, and we, are still in for shakeups and revelations, of course, but they’re likely to be mild in comparison to what’s happened i …
