Mars & Pluto Square Off!

Astro Alert! ūüĆü
For All Zodiac Signs

What a time to be alive as they say! The world has seemed to have gone mad in 2020, and to keep this exciting theme going the Cosmos is sending out some heavy-hitting energies this coming week starting August 10th. So forewarned is forearmed, and I have some information to pass on that hopefully will help you navigate through the tension Cosmic energies coming together!

Mars is making a tense Square to Pluto!

Mars the planet of aggression and passion is currently in its own sign of Aries, so this is warrior kind of energy. Pluto makes us thirsty for power and creates chaos, but it also brings deep personal transformation. Pluto is in security-based Capricorn currently stirring us up to gain power by marching to the beat of our own drum. This energy is like a match being lit to the flames that are already burning. Those who seek power or control on any level can get quite demanding, and just plain nasty, and especially manipulative during this time. We can struggle with any power plays or moves made on us by others, and we may have to deal with this kind of behavior from those who have some sort of authority over us, as we try to figure out just where we stand. This can be a time of great upset, trial, and tribulation. This influence can have us erupting in anger, and even rage! We are already seeing lots of upset globally, as people may not be able to handle the rage they feel deep inside over basic human needs and survival.

There are three frustrating squares between Mars and Pluto in 2020. The first one is on August 13th, but some will notice this energy starting up now!

When a planet meets up with Pluto they can get quite beat up by its demanding energy, and we can feel this energy and explore it deeply, as certain situations will play out bringing issues of power and control in strong focus in our lives! But war-like Mars loves a good fight, and this aspect challenges us to figure out who has the power and control in our lives. This can be with other people and society as a whole, (like things haven’t been already heated up enough with the powers that be in the US) but especially with those who have some sort of authority, power, or control over us, and of course those that want to! We might be asking who has the most power in the land. This square energy creates tension, but this helps us learn more about ourselves. Pluto has been connecting to many different planets this year putting us through major changes in our lives. We are already in a strong time of transformation, with powerful Pluto making its strong meetings this year also to stern Saturn and boosting Jupiter.

It’s most important that we pay attention to our reactions at this time, especially with authority figures. Try to figure out just what the real issues are underneath it all, and what’s causing our reactions. Anger is always about sadness, so perhaps you need to argue a bit so you can walk away from someone or something, and or even make a significant change! The best thing you can do is to remain respectful, and not fight below the belt while in this energy or it can get quite ugly! You also may want to think about controlling your responses to keep the damage down to a minimum, but you may not care, as there’s a stronger need to fight in the air right now. And some folks need to stick up for themselves and what they believe in, or for what is right. It’s something to definitely, ponder on, so you can use this energy for good.

Stay Safe & Be Well

Weekly Astro Forecast for August 11-18


Catching a lucky break in this crazy world!”



Jupiter the planet of luck, abundance, and beliefs will finally be moving forward again and out of its Retrograde cycle on August 11.

Since last April, many of you have felt somewhat stuck and struggled with gaining clarity around important life decisions, especially about what you need and want to do next in life. But now, everything will slowly come back together again and things may just fall into place. Jupiter direct is going to be exactly what you need to get your luck and life moving forward again, and this time hopefully in the right direction. Meanwhile, wild and rebellious Uranus is about to make its big bold move, and start its backward motion into Retrograde.

Uranus turns Retrograde on the 11th, so expect the unexpected! And this can be good or bad. Some of you will receive some fantastic news, and things will magically open up and start going your way while the rest of you can get tripped up under these energies, and have some sort of shakeup in your personal life. 

Uranus slow down for its Retrograde cycle has already been quite a big part of all the chaos and violence going on around the world over the several weeks. Due to its slow down while in its Shadow period (before its actual Retrograde cycle.) Many of you have been on edge and experiencing major high anxieties! And some of you thought it was just mental Mercury coming out of its Retrograde cycle, when in all actuality it was a combo of these two Cosmic events that have been so disruptive and hard to handle. 

With Uranus Retrogrades we all can experience issues with energy, and have serious anxiety issues. Uranus is complicated but it rules over energy, and can cause disruptions, however, it also helps us think forward about the future, as it rules technology, the higher-mind, and our state of awareness! 

Remember we as humans go are just one big ball of energy, so this Retrograde cycle can cause us to feel off and out of sorts. Once you adjust to it, many of you will feel more calm again. But for now you must ride the waves of this Cosmic influence and take things as they come. 

No matter how these energies play out, August 11th is shaping up to be a pretty important day!

Here’s a rundown of the future Cosmic Connections for the next week.

On August 11, Jupiter turns direct in the sign of Sagittarius, and all you FIRE signs, Leo, Aries, and Sagittarius can be quite lucky through early December. But all of us no matter what are Zodiac Signs can benefit because the next week is just filled with amazingly high good energies. Also, if you are a Sagittarius or Gemini you could see some gains in the coming weeks ahead. But for all of us, things will start moving once again, especially now that Mercury is out of Retrograde.

Also on August 11th, Uranus aka George, (that was his first real name), turns Retrograde through Jan. 10, 2020. You may feel somewhat confused or conflicted over the next week while you adjust to its energy. Especially, if you are a Taurus born in April, an Aquarius born in January, a Scorpio born in October, or a Leo born in July! We’ve already been experiencing some chaotic energy due to this shift over the last several weeks with shocking events playing out. But as difficult as these lessons are to go through, the Universe is serving a huge WAKE-UP CALL! This energy gets our attention and helps us see how people are still trying to move backward, and are not progressing, and Uranus is about forward movement and progression. This planet’s influence helps us understand how to handle the higher vibrational energies that so many of us desperately seek. As it sends out amazing messages to help us understand what we can do next to build on to structures in our life and our world! It often causes rebellious behavior and revolution, as it is showing us to get out of our emotions long enough to take care of business and move forward and thrive. And with Uranus now in the sign of Taurus, its mission is to help show us how to save the human race!

Unfortunately, there will be more chaos to come during the Uranus in Retrograde cycle, and some of you may feel like life is taking you on a roller coaster ride and that you are spiraling out of control. But try to not worry things will calm back down as we adjust to this energy. Just remain cautious and pay attention to your surroundings for the time being.

On August 14th, the Sun Conjuncts lovely Venus, and oh what sweet energy this can be. It’s a time for love, romance, and socializing with friends and our soul tribes. If you are an Aquarius get out and date as you could fall head over heels for someone and end up dare I say in love! Some of you will even meet your future husband, wife, or partner during this time.¬†All the Zodiac Signs can experience a strong love connection.

On August 15, there’s a Full Moon in the sign of Aquarius at exactly 22 degrees.

This is symbolic as the number 22 is considered to be a “Master Number” in Numerology. This¬†means this Full Moon is trying to put you on a path to reach greater balance and harmony in your life. You can manifest whatever energy you are focusing on or through your energy into.¬†Focus on what you want,¬†not what you don’t want or have already. It’s a good time for teamwork, and just hanging out with friends and your Soul Tribe. It’s also a good time to buy electronics that are used for communications, so this affects things like computers, phones, or tablets. However, with Uranus in Retrograde, there can be technical snafus and glitches to work around, so this could get interesting!¬†

On August 16th, mentally curious Mercury makes a tense Square to shocking Uranus. This is a day to pay attention and be extra cautious folks, as anxiety levels will be high and there can be some unexpected news! Expect the unexpected! People seriously can get out of control and take actions without thinking about their consequences first, as this energy is erratic and can be chaotic! This influence will start around the 14th with Uranus involved, as it always seems to come in extra early and it will run through the 18th.

On August 18, Mars the sign of motivation, aggression, and passion moves into the sign of Virgo until Oct 4th. This can have you feeling quite focused on something, but some folks are going to feel restless and getting your beauty rest may be more difficult than usual. This influence can affect your daydreams and night time sleep both. This does give us a burst of energy, as we roll into Autumn time. If you are not overly critical already, you just might find yourself feeling that way. But it is a good time to tackle all those little jobs or chores, as we are much more detailed than usual, so doing tedious work comes more naturally, and we can get quite a bit accomplished during this time.


Have a happy and safe week folks,
