THIS WEEK'S WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY 'REMINDERS'

A QUICK LESSON IN APPLYING AND SEPARATING ASPECTS - Now remember folks, when I post these aspects below they are 'exact' in degrees. In the few days leading up to these aspects being 'exact' we are in the 'orb of influence' (in the vicinity energetically). This means we are in an 'applying aspect' meaning you should feel the prodrome (early symptom) or intuitive feel of what is to come because the planets are coming together closer in degrees. After the exact aspect occurs on the date below, then the planets involved are in a 'separating aspect' where the planets are growing further apart in degrees, which will leave you feeling either relieved or refreshed. This means you are happy the energy happened or you are relieved that it is over. This is why it is very important for you to continually revisit this Weekly Horoscope page so you are on your toes. The aspects below will help you increase your intuition when you tap into when they are 'applying' and 'separating', not to mention you get the 'feel' of astrology rather than just knowing it on paper or on the computer screen. Let's face it, anyone can learn Astrology on paper and regurgitate it but feeling the energy is a whole other story. That's where the juice is and that is how you increase your intuition. If you want to build upon your intuition, then use the applying and separating aspects to your advantage. If I wrote your Expansive Natal Chart then you will see that I identified the aspects as either applying or separating in degrees and what the orb of degrees actually is. Being more in tune with your natal chart and these applying or separating degrees will also help you increase your intuition.

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Leo would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Virgo 2nd house, Libra 3rd house, Scorpio 4th house, Sagittarius 5th house, Capricorn 6th house, Aquarius 7th house, Pisces 8th house, Aries 9th house, Taurus 10th house, Gemini 11th house and Cancer 12th house. Read more about How Horoscopes Are Written Here! For your personal natal chart that has your exact birth date, time and location, then the flow from the 1st house would according to whatever Sun Sign is your Rising Sign.

Monday, May 18, 2015 at 9:50 PM EDT Mercury turns to Retrograde status. Keep in mind from April 30, 2015 at 10:00 PM EDT until July 8, 2015 at 2:52 PM EDT Mercury is Gemini, which is its 'Home' placement and most comfortable placement. Before Mercury turns Retrograde it is in its storm, which means it is slowing down and creeping upon the time period when it turns Retrograde. This is a particularly long transit of Mercury through the sign of Gemini because it is turning Retrograde well into its transit which makes the transit through Gemini that much longer.

I have been studying astrology since I was 12 years old (that's 42 years of my Life) and I still cannot figure out for the Life of me why everyone freaks out over Mercury Retrograde but yet the other planets when they are Retrograde don't receive the same amount of press. Other planets turn Retrograde too! Heck, and I'm a Gemini ruled by the planet Mercury. My North Node Virgo is ruled by the planet Mercury as well. Further, Saturn is Retrograde right now, Pluto is Retrograde and the North and South Node are always Retrograde. And in the Fall, we always have about 5 or 6 planets Retrograde but Mercury will get all the press and it lasts the shortest amount of time. Go figure. Maybe its because Mercury rules communication and transportation (how we get around verbally and physically) which is why it gets so much attention.

As I've written to you before, there should be no freak-out-ed-ness in a Retrograde status. It's your opportunity for a do-over. (See last two pargraphs on this page on Retrograde planets.) It's time to re-trace your steps and make it better before progressing forward. It's awesome folks! So, enough with dramatizing retrograde planets. They are here to serve us! They are here to give us not only a second chance but a third chance because they retrace the same degree 3 TIMES!!! That's what I Love about Retrograde planets, they give us a period of time to go back and do things over before progressing forward again along our Spiritual Progression Path™.

Since Mercury rules communication and transportation, the best thing you can do right now is do the things that might slow you down during Mercury Retrograde. Change the oil in your car....defragment your computer....do a computer system drive check-up.....update your luggage tags.....paint your mailbox.....put new numbers on your house and make them more visible.....clean up the phone numbers in your phone......pay a little more on your phone bill so that you have a credit.......wash your car.....check the tires......get a spare key made for your car and make certain it is in a place that is accessible in case you need it.......make certain you have a spare tire......start leaving for work 10 minutes early and get in the mode of being on time and not dramatically running behind.......enjoy giving yourself extra minutes by doing things a few minutes earlier......etc. While others may experience slow-downs (issues) you will be ahead of the game because you are ahead of do-over. How dang cool is that!?!? Now as a Gemini (Mercury ruled) with a North Node Virgo (Mercury ruled) I'm always in a organized mode because I'm a bit over the top Type A. (winky wink) Even more, during Mercury Retrograde you can expect me to be ahead on horoscopes by a day or two (as I usually am during Mercury Retrograde) because that is the advice I would give to you, if I were me, which I am. LOL

This Retrograde is taking us back to May 4, 2015 where Mercury in Gemini was at 04 degrees 33 minutes. Think about what was going on with you at that time because this is where the do-over resides.

Monday, May 18, 2015 - Mercury in Gemini turns Retrograde at 13 degrees 08 minutes

Thursday, May 21, 2015 - Mercury in Gemini Retrograde at 12 degrees

Monday, May 25, 2015 - Mercury in Gemini Retrograde at 11 degrees

Wednesday, May 27, 2015 - Mercury in Gemini Retrograde at 10 degrees

Friday, May 29, 2015 - Mercury in Gemini Retrograde at 09 degrees

Sunday, May 31, 2015 - Mercury in Gemini Retrograde at 08 degrees

Tuesday, June 2, 2015 - Mercury in Gemini Retrograde at 07 degrees

Thursday, June 4, 2015 - Mercury in Gemini Retrograde at 06 degrees

Saturday, June 6, 2015 - Mercury in Gemini Retrograde at 05 degrees

Tuesday, June 11, 2015 - Mercury in Gemini turns Direct at 04 degrees 33 minutes
Remember the last time Mercury in Gemini was at 04 degrees 33 minutes was on May 4, 2015

Saturday, June 27, 2015 - Mercury in Gemini reaches 13 degrees 08 minutes which is where it was when it turned Retrograde back on Monday, May 18, 2015

Thursday, May 21, 2015 at 9:54 PM EDT the Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn in 'exact' 15 degrees 15 minutes. This aspect depicts conflict which, when resolved, results in growth. Oppositions show a tug of war between opposing forces. If they are resolved, then the oppositions become the backbone and strength of the chart.

It is important to understand that the Venus rules Love, beauty and relationships. Venus is aesthetic and artistic. There is an attachment or response to beauty. Pluto rules transformation through destruction, only to end up in reconstruction. Pluto is powerful and behaves like plutonium, where it completely destroys only to rebuild anew. Pluto levels one thing to cause something else to rise up out of the ashes, just like the phoenix-rising arises from the ashes. Pluto destructs in order to reconstruct and there is where the transformation takes place.

This aspect shows domination, power and drama in personal relationships. Pluto is insecure, jealous and obsessed, so this aspect is obsessed with the idea of Love and desire. It expects loved ones to share love with the same level of intensity. As a result, relationships are infested with a struggle for power and control, probably even violence. Energy needs to be directed into a creative pursuit that is timing consuming and demanding to keep the individual's emotions from wandering and ballooning into something that does not exist.

The likelihood of becoming involved in intensely emotional and sexual relationships is very high. The individual might call this energy "passionate" when it really should be called, "jealous, possessive, insecure and cruel." This aspect attracts the wrong type of people to couple-up with and have a relationship.

Marital problems occur because of dictatorial attitudes and behaviors toward a mate, or vice versa. One might experience these attitudes and behaviors from their mate. Pluto is the planet of transformation through destruction, then reconstruction; therefore, there are attempts to remake or transform the partner rather than compromise.

In business relationships there are extreme challenges with competition, rivalry and jealousy.

For Leo, this Venus in Cancer, Pluto in Capricorn opposition directly affects your 6th and 12th houses as you can see from the flow of your Solar (Sun Sign) Chart below. The 6th house of daily life, health, hygiene, food, work ethic, employees, service, skills, servants, clothing and sickness. It is about the service you give to others and your daily habits, routine, the working environment, pets, animals and service. And the 12th house of the hidden realm, subconscious, past, pain, karma, jails, institutions, hospitals, mental health, finances of friends, secret sorrows, fears, self-destruction, large animals, skeletons in closet, self-undoing and self-injury. It is about your hidden strengths, weaknesses and what you don't want others to see or know about you, unredeemed karma and selfless service to humanity. Refrain from letting this house frighten you because it is necessary that you look at your own self-undoing in order to keep yourself on the straight path.

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Leo would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Virgo 2nd house, Libra 3rd house, Scorpio 4th house, Sagittarius 5th house, Capricorn 6th house - Pluto in Capricorn, Aquarius 7th house, Pisces 8th house, Aries 9th house, Taurus 10th house, Gemini 11th house and Cancer 12th house - Venus in Cancer.

Friday, May 22, 2015 at 9:35 PM EDT the Sun in Gemini opposes Saturn in Sagittarius in 'exact' 01 degree 38 minutes. Keep in mind that an opposition of planets means just that . . they are in directly opposite signs. Gemini and Sagittarius are opposing (opposite signs). They are the same but different. They are equal, yet opposite as all Sun Signs are with their opposing Sun Sign. This can either be handled as a tug-of-war or the perfect balance. Astrology ALWAYS takes into account your 'free will' so however you choose to handle this energy is entirely up to you. Note in the next two paragraphs how similar but difference these two signs are.

Gemini rules the 3rd house of communication, writing, mental abilities, sales, marketing, media, advertising, publicity, campaign, blog, website, lower education from 1st to 12th grade, early learning, immediate environment, short journeys, local travel and travel within your own country. It also rules neighbors, siblings and extended siblings such as cousins, nieces and nephews.

Sagittarius rules the 9th house of the dreams, visions, goals, ambitions, new adventures, new experiences, higher-thinking mind, religion, college, higher education, teachers, legalities, brothers and sisters-in-law, philosophy, prophecy, philanthropy, all things "foreign", intuition, long distance journeys abroad, churches, airlines, vacations and international commerce.

The Sun represents your identity, ego, confidence and personality. Saturn limits, conserves and reserves energy. In other words, it is hardly flamboyant. So we will see tempered personalities. Many individuals will pull back or feel restricted. It'll be like, "Damn it, everytime I start to . . . something happens! CRAP!" It'll be just like that folks. You may even feel defeated and lack the confidence (Sun) you need in order to shine. Some of you may experience an identity crisis. It could be something as simple as, "I'm a wife/husband, mother/father . . . but I have no idea who the hell I am or what the hell I'm doing!" Basically what I'm saying folks is we are in a very 'insecure orb of influence' under the guise of two Sun Signs are that absolutely concerned with security in all forms. These two signs, Gemini and Sagittarius are communicators and travelers. They both need to get their point across and need the freedom to move around at will. Saturn is restricting the Sun from shining. Many will likely not receive approval from where they seek it.

For Leo, this Sun in Gemini, Saturn in Sagittarius opposition directly affects your 5th and 11th houses as you can see from the flow of your Solar (Sun Sign) Chart below. The 5th house of pleasurable activities, parties, romance, dating, Love affairs, playtime/acting, sensual emotions, Lovers, parenthood and sexuality, creativity, artistic pursuits, hobbies, recreation, procreation, babies, pregnancy, children. It also includes leisure, games, sports, self-fulfillment, joy and bliss. And the 11th house of friends, groups of people, social acquaintances, former relationships (ex's), organizations, alliances, fraternities, memberships, money from the employer, finances of employer and stock exchanges. It is also about your hopes, wishes, dreams and the future.

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Leo would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Virgo 2nd house, Libra 3rd house, Scorpio 4th house, Sagittarius 5th house - Saturn in Sagittarius, Capricorn 6th house, Aquarius 7th house, Pisces 8th house, Aries 9th house, Taurus 10th house, Gemini 11th house - Sun in Gemini and Cancer 12th house.

SOME SET-UP INFO ON RETROGRADE PLANETS Planets move forward in degrees from 00 degrees 00 minutes 00 seconds . . . to 29 degrees 59 minutes 59 seconds. There are 60 minutes in 1 degree. At 59 minutes 59 seconds, the next second that ticks away fulfills 1 degree. When 30 degrees is satisfied then the planet moves into the next sign at 00 degrees 00 minutes. When the planet Retrogrades it goes backward in degrees. Now come on, a planet never really does move backward, that is just an illusion from a shadow cast on the planet making it appear as though it is moving backward. IT'S NOT REAL FOLKS! It's an illusion but our reaction to it is very real. It's like being at a stop Light and the car next to you moves forward a bit and it makes you feel like you are moving backward, suddenly you panic and hit the brake but you are sitting still. It's weird! Retrograde planets cause us to be 'reactionary' but when you get 'the get' of the illusion, then it's all cool, rose posey and you make progress in your Life. After the Retrograde period, the planet turns Direct and begins to move forward in degrees once again.

If you have been coming to this website long enough, then you know that I do not see Retrogrades as a bad thing. Fearful astrology is stupid and it is trickery from those begging for attention or pandering for business. Those who use astrology fearfully ought to be ashamed of themselves. All Retrograde planets are a period of a 'do-over'. There should be no freak-out-ed-ness in a Retrograde status. Re-trace your steps and make it better and put the brakes on the dramatization. You should be excited about a Retrograde planet because it is essentially the Universe giving you a 'do-over' before you progress forward. You are getting a 1st, 2nd and 3rd chance to make things right during a Retrograde period. A planet moves over a set of degrees (1st time), then it turns Retrograde and goes over those same degrees again (2nd time) and then it turns Direct and moves forward again going over those same degrees again (3rd time). Look at that, the Universe gives you 3 chances to get straight and fly right. Seriously, it doesn't get better than that. Seriously, how nice of the Universe! As a bunch of misfit humans, WE NEED THESE RETROGRADES, so take them when they come and use the Retrograde (do-over) wisely. Retrograde planets are meant to help you back-track, regroup, rewind, rejuvenate and get your life back on track. Retrogrades are basically saying, "Hey you! Yeah, YOU! I'm talkin' to You! Get your freakin' act together!" You see folks, we all need this, so take it!

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Leo would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Virgo 2nd house, Libra 3rd house, Scorpio 4th house, Sagittarius 5th house, Capricorn 6th house, Aquarius 7th house, Pisces 8th house, Aries 9th house, Taurus 10th house, Gemini 11th house and Cancer 12th house.
