If you think January was nice, just wait for February. We may have one difficult weekend, and the Full Moon could bring a challenge. But, most of the month should be smooth sailing, and there could even be extra blessings. In fact, I am forecasting that Valentine’s Day 2013 will be the best Valentines day we’ve had this century with lots of steamy romance and sex! Mars is going to be busy energizing some of the outer planets this month, and by Presidents’ Day, we may find a project or situation has been transformed. Read the rest of this entry »
January is often thought of as a cold unproductive month. We sometimes look at it as a time of “hibernation,” but this year, January 2013, could surprise us. We will have only one planet in retrograde, Jupiter, and he will be turning direct. The inner planets, Mercury, Venus, and Mars will be on the opposite side of the Sun, which will make viewing them a bit difficult. But, their aspects and gravitational influence will also be minor. Even the Moons will be pleasant. Mercury will be lining up behind the Sun and the Moon on the Capricorn New Moon, encouraging problem solving and new ideas. The Full Moon will be in fun loving Leo while singing with Jupiter and Uranus. January will be a good month for business and for politics. There is a possibility that our governments and our corporations will come up with new ideas and stronger values. Read the rest of this entry »
December will bring a big improvement over November. Those nasty eclipses and Mercury’s retro will be well behind us, and life should bring a return to normalcy. Most of December will have routine ups and downs. There could be an increase in holiday depression around the second half of the month with Saturn, Pluto, and Jupiter creating a tight triangle. All will be better than fine by New Year’s Eve. Conflicts should be at a minimum, and creativity will be at a maximum as we usher in 2013.
The weekend of December 1st may not ring so well with three planets, Venus, Mars, and the Sun, sending negative vibes toward Jupiter. Some will go to extremes, and exaggeration and wastefulness are probable. Take it easy with the holiday shopping, and think twice before making any decisions to incur more debt.

Geminid is usually one of the grand meteor showers we can count on every year in December, and this year will be no exception. It is caused by the Earth traveling through the tail of a mostly burned out comet, 3200 Phaethon. The Geminid shower will be viewable from late night, December 13th, until dawn December 14th. There will be no moon in the sky this year to block some of the viewing, so it is expected to be a spectacular light show. The meteors should be appearing in the mid north latitudes (US included) by 9 or 10 PM local time, with the peak of the show between 1 and 3 AM. If you have a really clear view, you could see up to 140 meteors per hour around the peak time. Even though the peak of the meteor shower is on the night of December 13th, it is very possible to see “falling stars” days before and after the actual event. Read the rest of this entry »
Its going to be a November to remember. Mercury’s retrograde will be upon us this month. And, that’s not all! Mars will be stirring up the Uranus-Pluto conflict, and we will be under the influence of a solar and a lunar eclipse. Even the spectacular Leonid meteor shower is going to be a disappointment this year. There will be challenges and changes for us to deal with this month, and some of us will be quite proud of ourselves when its all over.
November begins on All Saints Day with an argument between Venus and Uranus, which could bring rapid mood swings. There could be more trouble when the weekend of November 2nd begins as Venus moves her conflict to Pluto. Arguments could turn into nuclear disasters on Saturday, November 3rd, but we will feel much calmer on November 4th (the day daylight savings time ends). That extra hour of sleep will also help.
