June 2024 Monthly Horoscopes by Jeanne

June begins with the Sun, Venus and Jupiter in Gemini along with Mercury, just three days away from entering the sign of the twins, too. This stellium of planetary energy in one sector of the sky bodes well for having a busy social calendar, as well as having lots of opportunities for travel and new adventures through the first three weeks.

The energy does have a bit of a restless but upbeat vibe to it so it is actually better to be active than sedentary this month. The Gemini archetype is friendly, talkative, youthful and eager for new experiences.

With Jupiter’s vibe joining the party, you will have many choices available over the next twelve months, so take advantage of this period of expansion.

Mars moves through the final degrees of Aries and on the 10th enters the sign of Taurus, moving to 16 degrees, 10’ of Taurus by June 30th. Mars isn’t that comfortable in the fixed, feminine, earth sign of the bull which slows his energy down and gives a tendency to overindulge in all things pleasurable, to his detriment! Engage some discipline with your Mars to overcome those urges.

May 2024 Monthly Horoscopes by Jeanne

We begin the merry month of May with eight planets clustered in the three signs of Pisces, Aries and Taurus and the lone outlier, Pluto, in the sign of Aquarius.

Pluto is very powerful right now as he is going retrograde on May 2nd and squares Venus for the first 6 days of the month. There can be some emotional intensity or obsessive tendencies regarding money, values, sex, control and relationship dynamics involved in the square aspect between those two planets.

Fortunately, Venus moves on fairly quickly from that scenario and settles into her comfort zone of Taurus through May 24 after which she enters Gemini which is a very friendly sign to her. So, let the flirting begin!

Mercury is moving forward from 17 degrees of Aries and enters the sign of T which is a veryaurus on May 16th. When Venus goes into Gemini, Mercury’s sign on the 24th, it is considered to be a big positive energy as Mercury and Venus are in a mutually receptive relationship as they hang out in each other’s signs. This is a pleasant situation for both and you can enjoy social activities, dating, travel and meeting new people during this time.

Mars enters his own sign of Aries on the 1st and gets energized for accomplishment and action by that ingress. Jupiter is moving through the degrees of 24 Taurus to the first degree of Gemini on May 26th. The only problematic time with that transit is between May 12 and May 15 when Jupiter will be conjunct the fixed star, Algol in the constellation of Pegasus, which is considered to be a malefic influence.

April 2024 Monthly Horoscopes by Jeanne

Aries

We begin the month with a Mercury retrograde, yippee! Yes, the little dude does his retro dance from the 1st through the 25th beginning at 27 degrees Aries and going back to just under 16 degrees Aries before its direct motion on the 25th.

Mercury rules travel, communication, the nervous system, speaking and writing, among other things. “Don’t buy and don’t sign” is the usual Mercury Rx dictum. If you do travel during this time, things may be confusing in the beginning but ease up after the 10th.

The big news this month is, of course, the total Solar eclipse on April 9th at 19 degrees, 24 minutes of Aries, which has a path of totality across a large portion of the United States. The ancient wisdom about eclipses is that where ever the path of totality is visible those areas will be affected by the eclipse.

The ancient astrological lore is that one should not be outside during a solar eclipse as the lack of the Sun’s rays during that time may be a disturbance to your body functions.

The Moon and Sun are also conjunct by degree and minute with the asteroid Chiron, whose archetype is the wounded healer. This could signify some major developments in the medical field coming out within the next 6-12 months following the eclipse. Mercury retrograde hits that eclipse degree on April 17 and again on May 5th, which could trigger news or announcements about medical advancements at that time. Eclipses often mean a big change is coming and there is no going back from what happens after that time and this does not mean that what happens is negative. It is just a rather life altering experience.

March 2024 Monthly Horoscopes by Jeanne

March 2020 monthly horoscopes

March begins with a combination of Air, Water and Earth elements dominating the energetic vibe of the planets.What is missing is the Fire element.

Yes. Chiron and the north node are currently transiting Aries but neither is technically a planet so I have not counted them in the mix. However, the asteroid Chiron, the wounded healer archetype, and the calculated north node position representing your soul’s path or dharma, are still very close in degrees. They may still transmit a strong pull or an urge towards healing something within you so go for it.

Back to the elements noted above, the earth and water elements are slow moving energies. They take their time with changes. Air likes to move quickly but it is mainly on the mental level.

Air signs can vacillate between many possible scenarios and find it hard to settle on one possibility or one course of action. You need some Fire element to get the action started and that is what we lack this month.

It is unlikely things will go quickly for the first three weeks of the March. So here we are, folks, be patient with yourself, rest and let things unfold during this energy as it will change by the end of the month. We also have a full Moon lunar eclipse on the 25th at 5 degrees Libra/Aries. This energy can be very strong if it aspects one of your natal planets or angles. Do pay attention to what is coming up in your psyche to be acknowledged, healed and then cleared out.

February 2024 Monthly Horoscopes by Jeanne

We begin this month with all the planets moving in direct motion for the next two months. so take your foot off the brake and move forward with your plans. You can start slowly in the first two weeks as the energy builds around the 16th as the elemental balance starts to shift.

There’s an abundance of earth signs during the first two weeks of the month with three planets in Capricorn and two planets in Taurus dominating the elemental balance. There are also two planets in the air element and two in the water element.

The elemental balance shifts by February 16th to five planets in the air element of Aquarius, two in watery Pisces and two in earthy Taurus as the energy gains momentum.

By the end of February it shifts again to four planets in water, three in air and two in the earth element. So, during the latter part of the month, check in with your feelings, pay attention to your emotions and intuition and get ready to start looking at your life path and future in a new way. It feels right for a leap year! What are you going to do with that extra day this month?

Mercury is separating from Mars now so the argumentative energy is waning. Venus is approaching Mars so there’s a desire for relationship beginning to develop as they dance together for the next 5 weeks. This can develop with more intensity from the 14th through the 20th as both planets conjunct Pluto’s position at 0 degrees of Aquarius.

January 2024 Monthly Horoscopes by Jeanne

Happy New Year and welcome to 2024! This one will definitely have some interesting twists and turns of course, but it does start out with stability — as four planets transit earth signs — and optimism — with Jupiter in Taurus now in direct motion since New Years Eve.

Mercury, Venus and Mars are all transiting through Jupiter ruled Sagittarius and they transmit the vibration of optimism and adventure as well for the first two weeks of the month.

Then it starts to get more intense as we approach January 19th when the Sun will conjunct Pluto at 29 degrees of Capricorn. Pluto has been grinding back and forth on this degree for the latter half of 2023 and will briefly dip back to it in the fall for its final pass before he moves solidly in the sign of Aquarius for the next 19 years!

The 19th through the end January is volatile because the Sun will first join Pluto at 29 degrees of Capricorn and then stay relatively close to Pluto as it advances into the sign of Aquarius. The United States is also experiencing its Pluto return and all you have to do is read the news to see what turmoil we are going through at this time. Do we keep our democracy or devolve into a failed authoritarian state is Pluto’s dark side showing itself.

Mercury and Mars are also traveling fairly close together in the middle degrees of Capricorn and they can be argumentative and feisty when close to each other. Avoid conflict in your personal lives during this time and find an antidote to your exposure to the worldwide dramas so you don’t lose your center. That is the most important thing to strive for during dramatic times.

December 2023 Monthly Horoscopes by Jeanne

This month has quite a few planetary shifts that will be helpful as we close out this last chapter of 2023 and move into the new energy of 2024.

The first one is Neptune going into direct motion on December at 24 degrees 53’. Since Neptune is an outer planet, its vibration is more of a big picture shift as Neptune moves through the last degrees of Pisces over the next 15 months. Water issues in particular, and new solutions to the crisis, will emerge as viable to pursue into 2025 and beyond.

Mercury, our favorite little dude, will begin its last retrograde cycle of the year on December 13th, stationing at 8 degrees 27’ of Capricorn and moving back to 22 degrees of Sagittarius on January 2nd of the new year.

What will be very interesting about this cycle is Mars will be joining up with Mercury Rx during the last week of December so there’s lots of exciting talk and actions being discussed at that already busy time of year. They both engage with the Galactic Center of 26 degrees of Sagittarius during that week, Mercury Rx on the 25th and Mars on the 30th, so for those who like to connect with the cosmos for wisdom, it’s a great time to engage! However, don’t take action until Mercury clears that degree in its direct phase on January 11, 2024.

Venus is now separating from its recent conjunction with the south node on December 5th so it may take the next 3 weeks to get clear on your motivations and desires that took hold at the end of November. Venus doesn’t function all that well in Scorpio so allow yourself to take a step back to see where you might be obsessive or fixed in your opinions and be open to change.

November 2023 Monthly Horoscopes by Jeanne

We have some interesting cosmic vibes to contend with this month beginning with the Sun doing its annual opposition to Jupiter this year on November 1st at 9 degrees of Scorpio / 9 degrees of Taurus.

This can bring some good fortune to people with planets around those degrees so be ready for some blessing to make its way to your door if you have a planet or birth chart angles close to that degree. Accept the boon with gratitude, joy and spread love and generosity around.

Next, we have Saturn going into direct motion on November 4th. This happens at 0 degrees 30’ in Pisces so all the early degrees of the mutable signs have been directly affected by his retrograde in June at 7 degrees, going back to 0 degrees. Think about what you learned during the past 5 months as this transit was happening.

Saturn leaves a gift after any transit that personally affects one’s chart so if that is the case for you, accept it gracefully, realize the significance and incorporate it in your life.

Mercury moves from 15 degrees of Scorpio to 28 degrees of Sagittarius during the month. He will still be close to Mars for the first 4 days so remember to keep critical thoughts to yourself. The world needs peacemakers not irritating complainers or faultfinding whiners, now more than ever.

Venus transits through the last 8 degrees of Virgo and enters Libra, a sign she rules, on the 9th so that will make for more harmonious relationships and appreciation for love and beauty in the world.

October 2023 Monthly Horoscopes by Jeanne

Welcome to eclipse season! We have two eclipses this month, the first on October 14th, a new Moon solar eclipse at 21° Libra and the second on October 28th, a full Moon lunar eclipse at 5° Taurus.

The first will be visible in a large part of the western United States and has more difficult aspects associated with it. There is an inconjunct aspect from a retrograde Uranus at 21° Taurus and a waning square of Mars in early Scorpio to Pluto at 27° Capricorn.

These are tense and volatile aspects so use caution in your travels and worldly affairs during the second week of October.

Both eclipses occur in signs that are ruled by Venus so there may be financial matters that need attention or a course correction for the country since the eclipse is visible here in the US.

If you have planets in your natal chart around 21° of cardinal signs or 5° of the fixed signs you can look forward to big changes in the coming year. Lucky me, I have two planets in Libra within 1° as well as one in Taurus within 1° so the adventure continues to unfold in my piece of paradise.

Pluto goes into direct motion on October 10th at 27° Capricorn 53’ so he is quite powerful for the next two months. This is the last pass of Pluto over the 27th and 28th degrees of Capricorn for another 248 years so there may be more scandals coming up for big business and government that demand rectification so positive transformation can occur.

September 2023 Monthly Horoscopes by Jeanne

There are quite a few planetary changes coming in September but it began at the very end of August with Uranus going retrograde on Septemeber 29 at 23° Taurus, a fixed feminine earth sign. Then, we have Venus going direct on Septermber 4th at 12° Leo, a fixed masculine fire sign and Jupiter going retrograde 13 hours later on at 15° Taurus, squaring Venus in Leo.

All three of these planets will be very powerful for the first two weeks of September as their rate of apparent motion slows when going from direct to retrograde and vice versa which makes them more powerful during that time.

People with natal planets close to those degrees in the fixed signs may find their focus turning to finance matters, like establishing budgets and managing their own personal money goals.

Fluctuations in circumstances are likely with Uranus in Taurus but the tide goes both ways, in and out so please don’t panic if something you counted on slows down or stops completely. The flow of the universe will fill that vacuum in due time. Stay positive and remain open to change.

Mercury is retrograde until Septermber 15th and will have its inferior conjunction with the Sun on Septermber 6th in its Rx cycle. Look for new insights about your life in whatever houses in your natal chart that Mercury rules and is transiting through. The time between the 17th and 20th has the Sun at 26° Virgo in opposition to Neptune at 26° Pisces which can make one very sensitive and hesitant to make a change but it can also bring in refined artistic insights, too.

August 2023 Monthly Horoscopes by Jeanne

August begins with a full Moon in Aquarius on the 1st, a masculine, fixed air sign. It is the only air sign represented in this lunation with the most elemental placements going to earth with five, followed by fire and water, both of which have 2 planets. This earthy signature shows support for grounded action of a practical nature as the way to take advantage of this energy for the next two weeks. Finish what you start, be reliable and take care of your personal space.

The first 18 days will be dominated by the Venus retrograde placement in late Leo as she now moves into a square to Uranus in Taurus as well as being inconjunct Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn. You may feel a lack in resources or have some additional expenses show up that you weren’t expecting. Remember it is just a temporary condition and juggle things around as needed.

Venus is with fixed star Regulus so there will be unusual news about famous people, people in power and the financial markets as well. Relationships could get a little odd or prickly at this time so respond to the present moment and stay out of judgment. Venus in Leo values independence and attention so cut some slack and give some space to your loved ones while dishing out some appreciation and praise. Venus retrogrades back to 12 degrees of Leo by the end of the month and will go direct on September 3rd at 12 degrees 12’ of Leo.

July 2023 Monthly Horoscopes by Jeanne

While this event actually occurred on June 30th we are still very much involved with the effects of Neptune going retrograde at 27 degrees 41’ in Pisces. If you have been particularly tired, spacey or forgetful for the last few weeks, this might be Neptune’s effect on you as it is very powerful in its home sign, particularly when it stations before going into its retrograde motion phase.

The mutable signs will be most affected by this, Pisces, Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius, so take care if you have any planets or angles around the 25-29th degrees of those signs. Neptune is a slow mover as she only covers about 40’ a month so these effects could go on for a while or migrate into something else Neptunian. Consider yourself under the influence for the next year or so. Will you go for inspiration or illusion/delusion at this time?

Mercury is speeding along now, covering 8 degrees Cancer to 2 degrees Virgo this month. It can be a social time for all of us, particularly around July 27th when Mercury and Venus are conjunct as that pairing is usually up for lots of fun.

Venus begins her retrograde dance on July 23 at 28 degrees 36’ in Leo. She retrogrades back over the fixed star, Regulus at 26 degrees of Leo, which is said to be involved with many world leaders’ charts. There have been many times in the past when a planet in transit passes goes over Regulus and there has been a fall from grace for some leaders with the 26th degree of Leo prominent in their charts. Venus hits that degree three times initially on July 13, the second time while retrograde on August 2 and the last time on October 5th during this Rx cycle.
