by Lynn Hayes.  This is written for Eastern time zone with GMT in parentheses where necessary for our international friends – please adjust accordingly for your own part of the world.  You can see the positions of today’s planets here.


1.  Mercury makes a harmonious sextile to Mars on the 20th.  Great energy for anything involving the mind, especially since Mars is in Gemini which is Mercury’s sign.  Communication, short trips, writing – all are favored today and tomorrow.

2.  New Moon in Cancer and solar eclipse 10:35 pm EDT on the 21st (or the 22nd at 2:35 am GMT).  See previous article here.  

3.  Venus squares Saturn the afternoon (early evening GMT) on the day of the eclipse, creating potential problems with relationships and challenging us to see things the way they really are, not the way we want them to be.

4.  The Moon enters Leo one hour after the New Moon.  A brand new shift of experience, taking us into joy and a greater appreciation for the Self.

5.  Exact conjunction of Jupiter to Chiron, both in Aquarius, on the 22nd.  This aspect is part of the Triple Conjunction of Jupiter, Chiron and Neptune and will merely accelerate the expansion (Jupiter) of the necessity to venture deeply into our inner wounds (Chiron) so that we can more deeply connect with the soul (Neptune).  

6.  The Sun enters Leo on the 22nd.  Leo is the Sun’s sign, and encourages us to celebrate life – to find joy even in the midst of crisis. 

7.  The Moon enters Virgo late in the evening on the 23rd (early morning on the 24th GMT), turning our attention to the details of life. 

8.  Venus enters Libra just after midnight (early morning GMT) on the 26th, encouraging us to seek harmony and beauty in every aspect of our life.

9.  Venus forms a harmonious trine to Jupiter on the 27th that will begin to be felt on the 26th. There are a number of harmonious lunar transits that day as well, ensuring that Sunday the 26th will be an excellent day for just about anything!
