Astro4Business Weekly Forecast – And Some News

Hello, everyone.

If I had to pick a theme for the week, I’d say it will be finding the balance point between our desire to expand, look afar, and interact with foreign soils, and our need to care for the emotional needs of others.  We’ve got lots of fire sign energy this week, with its motto “Don’t fence me in!” and lots of water energy, with its motto “Connect!”

We’ll all have to be careful not to polarize and take the side that is easier or more familiar to us and blame others for playing the other role.  If you tend to more fire, then you may feel that others are trying to trap you with their demands.  And if you tend to more water, you may feel that others are not as caring and careful as you are.  But both energies are at play this week and the more we can claim both sides ourselves, the smoother the week will go.

Monday

The Sun moves into Sagittarius today and it’s your astrologer’s birthday!  Sagittarius ushers in the time of year when our impulse is toward celebration and freedom.  I’ve always thought it was a reaction to the darkening of the days in the Northern Hemisphere; merriment in the face of the death all around us in the month before the Winter Solstice.

And for you Southern Hemisphere people it seems a natural celebration of the growing light, with all the hope it contains, the possibilities for expansion which are the heart of Sagittarius.

Tuesday

After the Full Moon on Sunday bringing our ideas and projects to fruition and display, this is the first point of adjustment, with a quincunx between the Sun in Sagittarius and the Moon in Cancer.    Today we must adapt our plans to the needs of others, adjusting to the pull of emotional ties.  As great as our vision is, at this phase of the Moon we have to accept what is instead of what could be; this is the time to recognize the realities of our situation and take practical steps to align ourselves with these realities.  And the realities are likely to include the impact of our plans on our employees and family.  It’s the natural time to scale back and compromise.

Thursday

Today holds a square between Mercury and Jupiter, a day when we’re peering out the window yearning for distant pastures, but our duties and/or morals require us to focus on emotional connection.  It’s not all challenging though, because both Mercury in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Pisces understand the need for the imagination to roam.  How about roaming with a different group, or adding some eclectic members to your tribe?  If you’re celebrating the holiday, how about a different sort of festivity?  Service to others would be a great use of the energies of day, especially if there was a learning component involved.

If today is not a holiday for you, then I would schedule time for some wandering with others:  bookstores, museums, libraries, your local university.  All these activities take advantage of the day.

Friday

Today is the day to bring your project home, fully realized and perfected by the feedback you received earlier in the week.  The Sun and Moon move in harmony today in fire signs, so it’s time to cast a wider net and display your new product or project.  If you’ve scheduled a customer demonstration, everyone will appreciate a bit of dramatic flair.  Don’t be afraid to let your light shine today.

If you’re in retail, you know today can be one of the best days of the year.  Really go all out with lights; go over the top.  Today is a natural for a sense of fun and optimism.

Saturday

Today Mercury in Sagittarius forms aspects to both Neptune in Aquarius and Uranus in Pisces.  This indicates information and communications coming in from far and wide.  You’ve probably been yearning for some new images or input; they will come today if you look outside your local community to global interaction.  And yes, over the internet is certainly a possibility.

Sunday

On Sunday we reach the 3rd Quarter Lunar phase.  It may feel too soon but it’s time to start letting the last project go, handing it off to others for further implementation.  With the Moon in Virgo your best move is to carefully and precisely hand it over to someone you trust.  Pass it on with specific instructions, even taking the time to document what has led to this point and your expectations for the future.  And then work on letting it go completely over the next week, to prepare open space for new inspiration at the New Moon.

And some news

Holidays and travel to London and Bruges are beckoning me; how can I refuse?  I expect my writing will be a little more spontaneous over the next few weeks as this Sagittarius goes exploring and making merry.  I think the best idea is to subscribe via the RSS feed above and then you’ll be notified by email whenever there is a new post.  I don’t want to lose touch with you.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Saturn and Mercury – in Good Hands

Source:Wikimedia Commons


Good Day!

Today we enjoy a supportive aspect between Mercury and Saturn.  All week the lunar energy is building toward a culmination at the Full Moon on Sunday, yet this Mercury/Saturn aspect will make us question things like data security and earning a practical return for the time we’re investing.

With Mercury in Sagittarius our minds are likely to range far and wide.  You’ll be enthusiastic about communications, meetings, and global interactions and less likely to want to deal with the humdrum tasks in your local environment.  The whole time Mercury is in Sagittarius (November 8 – 30) we’ll have to tie ourselves to our desks; our instinctive impulse will be to roam free.  It’s actually good to build in some time for this kind of far-ranging, imagination-stoking wandering.  This is the natural time of the year for exploration and adventure, maybe not in a physical sense, but definitely in the mind.  If you really can’t get out, then this is a great time to read about topics foreign to you and discover new fields of interest.

If you allow some of that wandering today, you’re likely to run into someone who will resonate with your ideas and yet has some practical advice for you too.  Saturn in Libra is very keen to share wisdom and experience and the harmony between these two planets today will make us eager to listen to good advice.  In fact, why not round up a trusted advisor and take them to lunch today?  Let your minds ramble together and see if you don’t find a key to a new launch or venture.

I’m having a medical procedure tomorrow and with this aspect I feel I am in good hands.  Actually Mercury rules the hands and Saturn is the sense of authority, stability, and wisdom.  So I’m surrendering to the procedure with confidence and faith.

I am having a sedative for the procedure so I may not write a post tomorrow.  But here’s a reminder about our experiment we’re conducting this week.   From the Astro4Business Weekly Forecast:

There’s an astrological theory which says that on the day a planet resumes direct motion, it manifests a turn of events in our lives.  Let’s test this theory.  Both Venus and Jupiter resume direct motion on November 18 and both are very strong in signs they rule, Libra and Pisces – if there was ever a prime testing time, this week is it.  Take notice if you experience a turnaround in the matters mentioned above (professional relationships, money, creativity, art, job satisfaction, good public relations, new opportunities, expansion, foreign markets, philanthropy, justice and vision.)   We’re looking for real world turns and advancement: promotions, windfalls, proposals, etc.

Thanks to everyone who has commented so far here or on Facebook.  We’re really within the zone of manifestation now, so keep your senses peeled.

Moon in Pisces – Have You Ever Seen the Rain?

Good Day!

With the Moon and Jupiter in psychedelic Pisces joining the Sun in the caverns of Scorpio – it’s just not a day to write!  Too much water, not that I mind a break from all this rationality I usually live in.

So here’s my offering for today, on my mind when I woke up this morning.

Enjoy!

Tinkering and Toying with the Aquarius Moon

Source:Wikimedia Commons


Good Day!

A perfectly smooth day today with aspects of ease between the Moon, Mercury, Mars, and Saturn.

Actually the Moon/Mercury aspect occurs while most of us are sleeping so if you’re reading this the evening before put a pen and paper by your bed.  You may just get the inspiration you’ve been looking for and you’ll want to jot it down before it vanishes.  And if you’re reading in the morning think back to last night.  Anything worth remembering?

Later in the day you’ll get a boost of energy from Mars in Sagittarius.  You and your key employees will be thinking out of the box this afternoon.  Exploration and adventure will be on everyone’s mind so keep the creative juices flowing, even if it’s Friday.  If you’ve been tinkering with a new product idea, today’s the day to toss it to other people and see what they think.  You may be surprised how much further they take it, sensing applications you weren’t even aware of.

You don’t have to be afraid of going overboard though because the final aspect of the day is between the Moon and sensible Saturn.  Not just fun or frivolous, whatever your team comes up with will have practical applications and a good chance of actually being implemented.

Have you tried anything new this week?  I am toying with taking a blogging bootcamp.  The first week is free so I’ve been participating.  Good ideas so far.  Here’s the link in case you’re interested.   Oh, and by the way, the bread I mentioned in yesterday’s post was just OK.  It looked beautiful but lacked flavor.  More experiments to come.

Have a fun Friday and a relaxing weekend.

A4B Today – November 9 Preparing for Pluto

Source:Wikimedia Commons


Good Day!

Today the waxing Moon enters Capricorn, bringing a focus on systems and business proficiency.  Anything you can do over the next couple of days to bring your latest inspiration down to earth will pay dividends in the future.

Capricorn loves planning.  Capricorns know that all the knowledge and inspiration in the world is useless unless it is translated into deeds.  But before springing into action we need to plan our course.  There are any number of good business plan templates on the internet; it’s a great idea to download one of them and fill in the blanks.  Here’s the link to the SBA’s Small Business Planner.  Writing a plan does not have to be hard and it provides the first gate  to be sure your idea has wings.

Pluto visit

The Capricorn Moon joins Pluto in Capricorn today, an event which repeats itself each month.  These days are our opportunity to understand at a deeper and deeper level how Pluto in Capricorn is playing out in our personal and business lives.  The more we come to understand the presence of Pluto energy, the better we can prepare ourselves for its inevitable visit.  Everyone with planets in the early degrees of Capricorn has firsthand experience with Pluto and there seems to be an interesting pattern emerging.

After hearing from several clients it looks like Pluto has a penchant for putting someone on an unexpected pedestal and then bringing about a dramatic fall.  I’ve seen this so many times now I can’t ignore it.  First comes the surprise promotion, the fantastic new client, the coveted award; then the firing, the client desertion, and the humiliation.  And now that Pluto is in Capricorn, this seems to be playing out most often in business and careers.

Time after time, people don’t see it coming and don’t have a clue as to why it’s happening and what it means.  Since Pluto moves so slowly across the heavens, it can take many months or even a couple of years before the impact passes.  It becomes a test of endurance and equanimity, which are often in short supply.

Should you despair if you see a Pluto transit coming your way?  Not at all.  It is ultimately extremely rewarding and the more time passes, the more you will recognize the permanent gifts you received during the transit.  These gifts are usually along the lines of being freed from work environments or careers that were dead-end and making you miserable.

Do Pluto transits have to be hard?  Only if you still have an ego.  Most of us are quite sure we know what’s best for us and we fight and suffer as a result.  If you can resist the temptation to struggle against Pluto’s action, whether that’s losing a job, having to relocate, or needing to start completely over in your business, then you’ll be fine.  But that’s not easy.  We’re often unaware of what is making us unhappy.  Like Steve Martin says in the movie LA Story, “I was deeply unhappy but I didn’t know it because I was so happy all of the time.”

So be sure to pay attention on a day like today.  Every month the Moon and Pluto bring us a glimpse of what is outworn and in need of purging.  So go ahead and take some concrete steps to clear out the old and make room for the new.  That’s aligning with Pluto rather than being victimized by its energy.  The old skin has to go if we’re going to become renewed.

A4B Today – November 3 Reciprocal Mentoring

Source:Wikimedia Commons


Good Day!

Today is a power day in this lunar cycle.  The dark of the Moon has come, those couple of days just before the New Moon when our energy turns inward for rejuvenation and reflection before the upswing of the new cycle.  Today, as we spend time finishing up and, ideally, resting, the Libra Moon meets Saturn, also in Libra.

Libra is the sign of relationship, including business relationships, and Saturn is very powerful in this sign.  Saturn has a special affinity with business as the Saturn energy contracts our ideas and inspiration into material form.  Without the limiting and disciplined focus of Saturn, our best ideas would remain on paper and never become manifest in the world.

As the Moon meets Saturn in Libra, chances are good for an informative and insightful interaction with a seasoned business advisor.  This is an excellent day to meet to review where you’ve been and to envision where you might be going.  If this supporter is intimately related to your work like a trusted colleague or long-term partner, then even better.  You’re both willing to share your insights today and figure out how to take your business to the next level.

If you don’t have this trusted ally, today is a good day to look around and establish a connection with someone for a mutually beneficial relationship.  Be willing to give as much as you receive; you may have just the edge someone else is looking for while they may have a talent you’d like to develop.  A casual conversation is fine to get it started, but you should look for a long-term, committed relationship for a defined length of time in order to take advantage of today’s energies.

By the way, it’s fine to begin this relationship today, even though we are days before the New Moon.  This is not an externalized partnership; this is a behind-closed-doors one-on-one affiliation, which you will hopefully develop over time into a valuable, though discreet, asset in your business.  This relationship will focus on career advancement and professional development, and again, if you can connect with someone whom you can mentor too, it will be doubly beneficial.  Reciprocal mentoring is perfect for Saturn in Libra.

Do you have someone in mind?  Are you already working with someone?  Let us know about the relationship in the comments.  Saturn will be in Libra for the next couple of years:  let’s all make the commitment to gain this valuable business partnership.

Astro4Business Weekly Forecast – November 1 – 7

Anonymous Flammarion woodcut (1888). (Source:Wikimedia Commons)

Hello, everyone.

What an interesting week this is!  Nearly every planetary relationship this week is waning – not just the Moon waning to the New Moon, but waning relationships between Venus and Pluto, Venus and Mars, Mars and Pluto, Mercury and Jupiter, Mercury and Uranus, and Mercury and Neptune.  In addition to all of this withdrawing planetary energy, retrograde Venus moves back into Libra.  Seems strange, doesn’t it?  I can’t wait to see how it all plays out and please share with us how your week unfolds.

Waning energy means matters are coming to a close, preparing for a new cycle to begin.  Our part is to let this happen, to let go of what is obviously ending whether these are projects begun in the last few weeks or initiatives in place since the beginning of the year.  If a matter has run its course, it’s much better to recognize it now than to tie up time and resources which could be used for more profitable endeavors.

The only energy moving in the other direction is the Sun and Saturn, and at the end of the week, Neptune resumes direct motion.  So let’s take a detailed look.

Monday

Something is begging to be revealed today: revealed, acknowledged and then left behind.  Since Venus is involved with both Mars and Pluto, there is another layer to be uncovered regarding a professional relationship or a financial commitment.  Are you sure your facts and figures are straight?  Is your staff telling you everything they know?

It would be a wise use of today’s energy to practice some MBWA, management by walking around.  Visit every desk or workstation and invite your staff to tell you something you don’t know, no holds barred.  Dig down deep; your freedom to move forward depends on some “inside information.”

Thursday

This is the upbeat day of the week with the only waxing aspect between the Sun and Saturn.  When these two are on the field the subject is leadership and management.  We all know these are two different skills, but in small business you wear both hats, don’t you?  It’s time to test a new management style, perhaps one you glimpsed about a month ago when the Sun and Saturn met in conjunction.

One client just shared with me today that due to her frustration at her staff not getting things done she is testing a new, more commanding style and seeing results. This is a very seasoned leader and manager but she knows there is always something new to learn, something to try and improve.  Today you could recognize this new direction.

With Saturn, you may encounter resistance; this is natural.  It may even be coming from you, your inner rebel who doesn’t want to do the work even though you know the outcome will be solid.  Or you may feel uncertain or hesitant; this too is a natural reaction to a new vision.  But there’s something more to achieve and Saturn instills the discipline to do it.

Friday

The Sun and Moon meet in the sky for the New Moon in Scorpio today.  If you can get a moment or two to yourself you may actually feel the release of energy or power, a new possibility stirring.  The actual day of the New Moon is not the time to begin something new.  It’s best to wait a couple of days and let your inspiration take form in quiet.  Even if you’re quite sure about the next stage in your business, try to wait until early next week to set it in motion.  The weekend may hold some surprises that will enhance your idea.

Saturday

On Saturday we get back to the down note with two waning aspects, one between Mercury and Neptune and one between Mercury and Uranus.  Mercury rules communications, data, and analytics and with the waning aspects it’s time to finish up a series of meetings and publish your reports.  The aspect with Neptune may make you feel there is still brilliance to be mined in your materials but it’s probably not true.  They were fine in their time but renewal will soon be necessary.

The aspect with Uranus today allows you to work constructively with a group to finish up and actualize a shared vision; expect radical and unusual viewpoints to arise and inventive solutions to technical difficulties.

Sunday

Neptune resumes direct motion on Sunday.  The change in direction can bring confusion or feelings of loss to the surface.  We may know we’ve been through a massive shift but we’re not at all sure exactly what has changed or how to practically apply it to our businesses.  It will take a couple of weeks to adjust to the direct motion and then you’ll see your creativity and inspiration soar.

Venus in retrograde motion reenters Libra today, a sign she rules.  When Venus is in Libra, we find our day-to-day happiness in relationships, art, beauty, fashion, and generally getting along and supporting each other.  We are more than usually accommodating and willing to compromise.  Our social instincts are fair-minded and our business relationships more intellectual and rational.

Until Venus turns direct on November 18 this is not a good time for new contracts or professional relationships, or for major purchases.  Continue to review and reevaluate, but no major changes until after the 18th.

OK – have a great week!

A4B Today – October 27, Water, water, everywhere!

Source:Wikimedia Commons

Good Day!

If your plans today include accomplishing anything with precision or logic, be sure to get it done early in the day.  Your mind should be sharp this morning; just watch for overblown ideas or thoughts focused too far into the future.  The Moon forms challenging aspects to Jupiter and Uranus this morning which can tend to make us bored with today’s work and much more interested in tomorrow’s.

After noon (MDT) the Moon moves into Cancer where it becomes the seventh celestial body in a water sign.  That’s seven out of ten “planets” in water signs.  That’s a lot of water!

Water signs represent the emotional currents that flow between us and this can manifest as one of those days which is either over the top happy or everything seems to hurt everyone’s feelings.  It may require extra sensitivity on our parts as we interact with colleagues and employees, especially if we tend to operate from our minds rather than our feelings.

When there is this much water around, conflict is bound to rise to the surface.  Deep-seated brewing resentments or jealousies could be revealed.  This is ultimately beneficial but needs careful handling. When so many planets are in water signs there can be a marked lack of objectivity, coupled with impractical solutions, and topped with a lack of confidence that things can change for the better.

Keep your eye on non-verbal behavior too; don’t assume that if everyone’s quiet, all is well.  Notice if people are smiling, smirking, rolling their eyes.  You may have to help guide your staff to more appropriate and positive expressions of what they are feeling.

I was just in a situation where I saw a very seasoned manager deal extremely effectively with a new staff member.  This new employee has very high expectations of herself, and was expressing non-verbal eruptions of frustration through moaning, sighing, and self-deprecating comments:  “I’ll never get this!”  This wasn’t directed at anyone but herself, but the energy was pouring into the atmosphere, upping everyone else’s stress levels.  I really admired how her supervisor pointed out to the new employee what she was doing and how it was affecting those around her, and counseled her kindly but pointedly that she would learn faster if she changed her approach to the work.  Later in the day I heard this new employee thanking her manager; she sincerely appreciated the feedback.  And everyone else in the office was grateful as well.

When the Moon is in Cancer people respond well to nurturing.  Perhaps eating a meal together or bringing goodies to the afternoon meeting will help people express themselves in appropriate ways.  We’re not looking for ultra-rationality today; the water energy has its own gifts to give which include creativity, compassion, empathy, and willingness to connect.  We just want to provide positive outlets for the flow so no one gets caught in a thunderstorm!

Astro4Business Weekly Forecast – October 25 – 31

Anonymous Flammarion woodcut (1888). (Source:Wikimedia Commons)

Anonymous Flammarion woodcut (1888). (Source:Wikimedia Commons)

Hello, everyone!

I’m back from a very successful trip back East, where I picked up several new clients in both of my vocations:  astrology and accounting/taxes.  As someone highly influenced by Gemini, the sign of the twins, I always have two businesses that I run at the same time, and each, I’m happy to report, is flourishing.

During the last three weeks I’ve posted the Astro4Business weekly forecasts but not the daily updates.  I can tell from my Google Analytics visits stats, which fell about 50%, that my readers appreciate the daily updates so I will continue them.  It would be interesting to see how the stats would do with only the daily posts and not the weekly forecasts.  I’ll have a chance for that experiment in December when I go to London for 2 ½ weeks.  In the meantime, let me know: which do you enjoy more, daily or weekly, or do you regularly read them both?

This week we are firmly in the waning Moon part of the lunar cycle, the time to make adjustments, get our new products into circulation, and get ready to hand off our most recent projects.  We may not have accomplished everything we wanted to; we may need to adjust to the realities of what actually did get done.  This is a time when the ‘real world’ intersects with our own hopes and dreams and we may have to let go of some of our ambitions.

But as soon as we bring our expectations down to size, we will see how we can work constructively with others.  All is not lost and the results from sharing our efforts and our successes may be even more satisfying than trying to go it alone.  Let others in this week and let your project morph from your own creative expression to a joint endeavor.  Then when it’s time to hand it off next week, you’ll have ready hands available to take it to the next level.

There’s a whole lot of Scorpio energy in the air this week as well which is similar to this lunar phase.  Scorpio is a point of crisis at which we have to decide whether we will take other people’s values and desires into consideration or continue to set our own course based on our own skills and resources.  This is a crisis point because as much as other people’s resources can support and even bankroll our businesses, there are real consequences to this kind of interdependence.   So take every step carefully this week.  Think through the long-term ramifications of investing time and energy into more committed partnerships or alliances.  They may be favorable or not:  I’m just saying to go in with your eyes open and all cards on the table.

Be sure to check in each day this week as we explore these subjects more deeply, including that Venus Retrograde post I promised you a couple of weeks ago.

A4B Today – September 24, Pitru Paksha

Source:Wikimedia Commons

Good Day!

Today the Moon is still in its full lunar phase in Aries.  Although the exact moment of the Full Moon has passed, the next few days carry the same energy.  It’s time to bring your tasks and projects to completion, and demonstrate their value to others.

This feisty, independent energy of the Moon in Aries has one problem today – Mercury in Virgo.  Mercury represents our rational thinking processes and all communications and meetings.  Mercury in Virgo requires precision and organized plans and presentations.  The Moon in Aries just wants “to be starting something” and cares little about precautions or perfections.

You may have to adjust one or another party’s expectations, or separate the two camps for the day.  The best use of this energy would bring your firm’s excitement and winning attitude into careful communications, with everyone’s best interests in mind.  Seems like a fairly tough assignment to me!

Today begins the 14-day Hindu celebration of Pitru Paksha.  Pitru (forefathers) Paksha (phase of the Moon) is an annual celebration honoring ancestors.  It is said that the ancestors return to earth during this time, and honoring them helps their souls remain content.  It is traditional to give charity at this time as a way to give back to those who gave so much to us.

“Ancestors” in this context has come to mean all those whose blessings have allowed us to live a full and happy life.  This refers to all of our biological ancestors, but also any mentors or guides, school teachers, coaches, spiritual advisors, anyone to whom we owe a debt of gratitude.  For those of us in business, it’s a great time to remember and thank anyone who enabled our success, anyone whose example inspired us, or who gave us an opportunity when we needed it most.  It’s also a great time to reach out to others for wisdom and to share our own with others.

Have a wonderful weekend. May all of your guides and guardians be pleased to continue to support you in the coming year!
