Some weeks are harder than others to write a weekly forecast about. Like this week, for example. There is some nice supportive stuff going on, and Mars has entered Sagittarius, sure. But nothing grabs people’s attention like bad news, and frankly there seems to be a shortage of that going on this week.

Mars Square Neptune.

Sure, Mars square Neptune is in effect now, but it doesn’t even reach its peak until the end of the week. So why should we worry about it now? For once, Saturn isn’t misbehaving.

The neighbors are watching you.

And yeah, technically we are entering the “shadow period” of Mercury Retrograde, so there is a chance our thoughts and communications may not be as clear as intended, but just stay focused and proofread and everything ought to be fine.

You’re a fool if you believe that.

Venus is moving into the sextile with Saturn, so later in the week it should be easier to stabilize your finances and affections. Venus is in Virgo, which may not be the most exciting place for her, but it’s relatively thoughtful and stable and not prone to rash emotional actions.

Someone will break your heart.

*sigh* Okay, I hear you, Little Voice In The Back Of My Mind. As far as Mars square Neptune goes: sure, that’s within 3° of being exact. And yes, that particular aspect can make for some weird emotional states. Of course, depending on the details of your own birth chart, this will affect some more than others. But let’s not worry about that, shall we? We can’t spend all our time waiting for the other shoe to drop, especially when you consider that often there was no first shoe in the first place.

Potential tragedy lurks behind every corner.

Life always carries a certain degree of risk with it. You know that by now. You can’t let worrying about everything bad that could happen get to you, because EVERYTHING bad that could happen never actually happens. Not ALL of it, not all at once at the very least. So just breathe through it and you’ll be fine, okay?

Just wait until next week.

Shut up!

Off To The Races With Your Mars In Sagittarius Forecast!

posted by Matthew Currie

beliefnet mattew currie mars in sagittariusAfter an epic-length stay in Libra fretting over relationships, and then a relatively quick and somewhat cranky run through Scorpio, Mars enters Sagittarius on Saturday, where it will remain until October 26th. Of course Mars can make trouble for you no matter where it goes, but I can’t help but think this will be a relatively easy run for the God of War. Libra was a frankly terrible place for it, and Mars was strongly placed in Scorpio… but is a strong Mars always a good thing?

Regardless of the Sign placement though, ultimately one has to look at the aspects Mars is making to the other planets and what it’s doing to you in your own birth chart. Your mileage may vary, but overall Mars will be making some decent aspects to other planets while it passes through Sagittarius. Get to know the details of your own birth chart and play along, and see how you can take advantage of the conditions.

Below is a listing of major aspects Mars will be making in the near future. Please note that although I am listing the exact date, the aspect will be in effect for three or four days both before and after that.

Giddyup!

***

September 13: Mars enters Sagittarius. Those with their Sun or Moon or Ascendant in a Fire Sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) will probably be feeling pretty spirited in the next little while. Virgo and Pisces will likely get a bit edgy. Air Signs should be able to work well with it, and Earth Signs may not quite know how to handle it.

September 21: Mars square Neptune at 5 degrees Sag/Pisces. This is a problematic aspect between two very dissimilar planets. On the one hand, everyone may find that their drives are blunted or confused or deluded. On the other hand, there is a distinct charm in the air. The fact that this happens on the weekend, at the same time that Venus is sextile Saturn and people are seeking order in the love lives could lead to some interesting results. It could make for some interesting new partnerships as well, and for a bit of “looking for love in all the wrong places.”

October 4/5: Mars trine Uranus at 14 degrees Sag/Aries. There is a sudden outburst of creative genius and spontaneity and wildness. Since this happens on the weekend, it might be a good time to shake things up in your love life. If your (or someone else’s) romantic cage need some rattling, now is the time to do it.

October 8: Mars trine Jupiter at 17 degrees Sag/Leo makes for a huge amount of energy. This is also the day of the Lunar Eclipse, and also the day of Venus square Pluto… so check in with me closer to that date and I’ll have more details on how this will affect you. And try not to be too much of a maniac, okay?

October 15/16: Sun and Mercury sextile Mars at 23/24 degrees Libra/Sag.. Your thoughts and words will be bold and energetic. That’s great if you’ve had a hard time sticking up for yourself, but it’s no time to go yelling at the boss.

October 19/20: Venus sextile Mars at 24/25 Libra/Sag. The mood is bouncy and sociable, and so is your sex drive. Once again, this is well-timed for the weekend. Looks like there’s going to be a lot of bonding going on this fall…

October 26: Mars wakes up bleary-eyed and with a hangover to discover that it has arrived in Capricorn. Mars rolls up its sleeves and decides to get to work and promises to be more sensible from now on.

Now, please rise for the Mars in Sagittarius anthem.

Harvest Moon in Pisces: Astrology Forecast And Drinking Game!

posted by Matthew Currie
beliefnet astrology matthew currie drunk

You’d be amazed how much research I put into this article.

Normally on a Full Moon I would be presenting a guide to what you can expect from those crazy jangled emotional nerves that happen when the Moon is full. Rather than do that, this time around I have decided to honor the nature of the Full Moon in Pisces by inviting you on a shamanic journey. Specifically: a journey to your neighborhood dive bar.

That’s right. I am prescribing a trip to the neighborhood bar on a Monday night (Yes. One of the lesser known side benefits of being an astrology is the ability to write prescriptions). You know it’s the hard-core drinking crowd hanging out there if it’s Monday. Since Pisces has a strong association with altering one’s consciousness, this is the perfect place to spend this Harvest Moon.

Although the Full Moon hits the exact degree on Monday evening, there’s no harm in doing this on Sunday evening, or even Tuesday evening. In fact if you want to get fully into the spirit of a Pisces Moon, you might want to stay camped out at that bar for all three days. This may also help you explore another facet of the Pisces Experience: wondering why the Universe has been so cruel as to make you lose your job and/or family.

Seat yourself in a corner where you can watch everyone else in the bar. Get to know the Sun Sign of everyone in the bar by asking them. If you are a little too shy for this, offer to buy them a drink in exchange for finding out their Sign. This is not only a great way to see astrology in action and to spread the word about the ancient art of prediction, it’s also an excellent way to make friends.

Once you’re seated comfortably, make sure you are equipped with several drinks. Watch the other people at the bar and how they interact. Because this a Full Moon that is conjunct Chiron s and is closely aspecting Saturn, you are likely to see some unusual effects, as follows:

If an Aries is acting paranoid or is complaining about what a grind their work is, drink.

If Taurus is being unusually sociable, laughing loudly, flirting, or saying stuff like “I love you guys,” drink

If a Gemini is complaining loudly about their career path, the workload involved, their parents, or their home, drink.

If that Cancer over there seems particularly suspicious of other people’s motives, drink. Please note: this one is also good for other Full Moon drinking games.

If your local Leo is talking a lot about money, sex, or how they generally suspect they are being screwed over as a result of either one, drink.

If the Virgo in the bar seems unusually cheerful, outgoing, concerned with their partner, or is desperately seeking a partner, drink.

If a Libra seems overly concerned with his or her appearance, the fine details of how their accessories match, then this is absolutely nothing new… but drink anyway.

If one of the Scorpios in the bar seems to be taking their mood out on someone else, either by starting a fight or attempting to start a relationship, drink. Drink twice if they’re going after the Libra.

If a Sagittarius is complaining loudly about their work or home life, drink. If that Sagittarius also insists that continuing to drink will somehow make it better, drink twice.

If your Capricorn seems to have turned suddenly talkative and philosophical, and appears to be working out some major life issues out loud, drink. If you can convince the Capricorn to dig into their savings to buy you a drink, drink twice.

If an Aquarius is acting like they’ve got money to burn, and spending it on their friends, drink. If the Aquarius is actively flirting with anyone, drink twice. If this is actually a wealthy Aquarius, see if you can get the Aquarius to propose to you or at least proposition you (based on your own situation of course).

If the Pisces is acting friendly yet fretful, cheerful yet nervous, and intrigued yet intimidated by you, drink. In fact, this Full Moon is happening in Pisces’ First House, so see if you can talk to Pisces into buying around for the house. Sure, Pisces will feel guilty about that tomorrow, but they were likely going to end up that way anyhow.

Astrology And Order: Bieber Victims Unit

posted by Matthew Currie

beliefnet astrology matthew currie bieber courtSinger, enormous celebrity, and poster child for the results of poor parenting Justin Bieber is once again in legal trouble, this time for smacking his ATV into a minivan and starting a dustup with someone in his hometown of Stratford, Canada.

(An aside: both Justin Bieber and myself are Canadians. In general we have a reputation for being peaceful and polite. But have you noticed that no matter how you slice up the human pie, there’s always that one guy who screws it up for the rest? Justin Bieber is “that one guy” for Canada.)

I wrote about Justin here back in January, and at that time he was facing some problems, but I urged him to contact me so I could warn him about the potential even more difficult stuff ahead. Despite my best efforts, he did not contact me about this. Justin, you really need to get yourself better social media people to keep an eye on these things, okay?

So now, instead of a stern warning, it’s time to deliver a preview of bad news yet to come.

It’s a little too easy to look at Justin’s chart and say “Sun in Pisces and Moon in Libra: he’s unrealistic and his friends lead him astray.” You can look at the same Sun/Moon combination in Michael Caine or Rudolph Nureyev or Sydney Poitier and find good things to say about it. And if you’re having a bad day, you could point out the similarity to Joseph Mengele or serial killer Aileen Wuornos. If you put your mind to it, astrology is as good as ethnicity or religion or social status as an excuse to match your preconceptions about someone.

So instead, let’s just look at the cold hard astrological facts. What is coming up for Justin Bieber on his scheduled court date, September 29?

First of all, knowing how the legal system works, we cannot assume he will actually be in court that day, or that the proceedings will be wrapped up that quickly. In fact, by the end of September, Justin is just beginning some transits that could cause him a potential world of hurt.

When it comes to facing the consequences of one’s actions, we often look to Saturn. At the end of September, Saturn will just be entering conjunction range of Bieber’s North Node, Pluto, and Ascendant. This certainly implies a strong potential for Justin to be facing some life-changing consequences (Pluto) as a result of his “karma” (North Node) or “how he comes across to people” (Ascendant). But at the end of September, Saturn is in a much closer Square to his Mercury and Mars. Mercury is the ruler of Bieber’s Midheaven, which is public image, and Mars rules aggression. So it’s not too hard to see that this particular court case of his might turn out to be a little less consequence-free than previous court cases he’s had for other bad behavior. It does not help any that Neptune will be stationing within a degree of his Saturn, which is never a good sign for maintaining order in one’s life.

But now here’s where things get interesting. That big Saturn conjunction doesn’t become exact until November-December, and thanks to a retrograde it will be back again in July-August 2015, at which time Saturn will turn direct and go forward within 1/6 of a degree of the exact conjunction to Justin’s Pluto.

Translation? The rest of the year will probably suck for Justin Bieber, but we likely ain’t seen nothing yet. That is especially the case when you consider that it is his Sun trine Jupiter in water Signs that is driving much of his excessive behavior, Uranus is exactly quincunx his Jupiter now… but thanks to the retrograde it will be making that exact aspect again in March 2015, which is also when Justin Bieber will be having his exact Jupiter square, which is a strong indicator of more excessive behavior.

Oh my.

Despite all this, I remain optimistic. Justin, drop me a line. There’s still hope for you yet kid.
