August 2017 Forecast

With Pluto making its third square to Jupiter on the 4th and Uranus goes retrograde in Aries on the 2nd, the first week of the month creates a dynamic where people try and force their beliefs on you. Arguments will heat up and this will create tension and irritability. Mars is also conjunct the Sun in Leo which makes this all the worse. Keep your distance from overbearing outside forces.

The Aquarius Full Moon and lunar eclipse on the 7th makes you feel like you don’t want to belong to anyone else’s agenda. Saturn has been retrograde in Sagittarius which rules our beliefs. This has made us go in and reevaluate what is true for us individually versus what others may want for us.

The powerful solar eclipse on the 21st is a super New Moon. It takes place in the sign of your creative self will, Leo. This signals a time of major endings and beginnings. It asks you if you are truly in command of who you really are, or are outside influences still directing your journey. Is your Soul voice guiding you? If not, then what is, because this is where the change needs to come from.

The Sun will move into the service sign of Virgo on the 22nd. On the 25th Saturn goes direct in Sagittarius. So now that you have decided who you really are and what you believe to be true for only you, the next step is to give that to those who would want and value it.


       This fourth of July weekend has the Sun, Mercury, and Mars all in the sign of Cancer. Family gatherings will abound, but be cautious. These planets have hard aspects to Pluto and Jupiter, meaning family members may try and force their beliefs and ideas onto you. Family always has the most powerful influence on us, but you may have moved on from the messages of your childhood, so don’t be swayed by the memory of something that no longer falls into your belief system of where you are now.

Emotional upheavals are bound to happen when the Full Moon joining Pluto in Capricorn happens on the 8th. Try and stay objective to what others are saying to you. If you take things too personally, you are bound to come off defending yourself and engaging in a conflict that might get out of control.

Mercury enters Leo this month. This makes us want to put a stamp on what we think is important and to lose objectivity in our thinking. You will demand to be heard. Venus also enters Leo this month which will make you want to buy something extravagant and turn on the romantic gene.

The New Moon around the 22nd and 23rd has the Sun and Moon enter Leo and join Mars. They will make a hard aspect to Uranus in Aries. This intense fire energy will create tremendous clashes of egos and possible accidents or violence. Be careful of getting into conflicts with others who force their will on you. This energy could also heat up the atmosphere making July a very hot month.

May 2017 Forecast

tommcmullan  The first half of this month has Mercury conjunct Uranus in Aries. Information will seem to come at us at lightning speed. This is a good time to think outside the box and come up with new ways of seeing and doing things. This combination can give one a genius idea that comes from an intuitive impulse. On the down side, be careful of accidents and impulsively jumping to wrong conclusions, especially while Mercury is retrograde until the 4th.
Communication seems to be the theme of the month with Mars in Mercury’s sign of Gemini. The middle of the month has Mars squaring Neptune in Pisces. This can be a very deceptive energy. Don’t let others try and deceive you into believing what isn’t true. With Jupiter making a favorable aspect to Mars at the same time, listen to your own truth, so you can sort through the external noise.
Venus enters Aries this month and has two important aspects. One is a square to Saturn, which will make you look at all of the imperfections in your relationships. The other is an opposition to Jupiter, which makes you want more than you have. A scary proposition if you ask me. Since the Mercurial energy rules this month, again I warn you about jumping to conclusions.
The Full Moon in Scorpio on the 10th asks us to transform our desires from selfish concerns and look to others as a way to see that we all belong together in our need to feel connected.
