My promised monthly forecasts did not materialize after mid-January 2013 (let’s just say I was at the mercy of those very aspects!) I hope to resume the regular forecasts soon… But first, it’s useful to all to look back at the stellar landscape of stressful aspects and transits. Why only the stressful ones? Well, no one worries about the positive enhancing stuff, but the difficult days of your lives tend to linger in your minds for a long time.. and giving it perspective allows you to understand and let go of it..
Note 1. Which aspects: Only aspects of semi-square & Square are shown, as in my view, they tend to create the most internal stress (which can flare up a person or situation and create external conflicts).
Note 2. Which signs? Letters in bracket (Aq, Scorp) refers to the signs where those two planets are.
Note 3. Who does it affect? Remember that any transits/ aspects will influence all of you.. albeit a particular sector of your life (home, wealth, romance, work, social etc). But the aspects will be felt more intensely..by the people whose zodiac signs are directly involved in the aspects, as well as the zodiac signs that are ruled by the planets involved. I’ll indicate this next to each event.
Note 4. Duration – The energies of the aspects `build’ a day or so before the actual aspect…so that’s when the stress may have been felt the most.
25th – Mercury square Saturn — Primarily affected Geminis, Capricorns. (Adversely influences Aquarians & Scorpios).
27th – Mars semi-square pluto — Primarily affects Aries, Scorpios. (Adversely influences Aquarians & Capricorns). Full Moon in Leo. So additional energy around for a lot of emotions to bubble to the surface. Mars & Pluto rule Scorpios… Moon rules Cancer a water sign, and as Scorpio is also a water sign, this will be a particularly hard one for Scorpios.
30 – Sun square Saturn –Primarily affected Leos, Capricorns. (Adversely influences Aquarians & Scorpios).
Also Jupiter goes direct ..which is a positive change for Sagittarians, after they have been facing many a challenges for the past 4 months of many (As Jupiter has been retrograde in Gemini for 4 months, they too will have been facing challenges for 4 months!). Shifts will occur now.
31 – Mercury semi-square Uranus — Primarily affected Geminis & Aquarians. (And also affects Aquarius & Aries) .
3rd – Mercury semi-square Pluto — Primarily affected Gemini’s and Scorpios. (Also influences Aquarius & Capricorns).
6th – Mercury leaves Aquarius and enters Pisces. Gemini’s and Pisceans will start to see a major shift soon. But there is the 3-week long mercury retrograde to face between 23rd Feb to 18th March.
9th- Sun semi-square Uranus –Primarily affected Leos & Aquarians,; Mercury square Jupiter (aq, gem) – primarily affected Geminis and Sagittarians. (Also for Aquarians & Pisces);

11th – Venus square Saturn — Primarily affected Libras, Taureans and Capricorns. (also felt by Pisces & Scorpios).

19 – Venus semi-square Uranus — Affects mainly Librans, Taureans and Aquarians. (Influences Pisces & Aries).
22- Venus semisquar-Pluto — Affects mainly Scorpios, Librans & Taureans. (Also Aquarians & Capricorns).
23rd – Mercury retrograde starts – One of the planets whose retrograde affects not just Gemini’s (mercury rules that sign) and Pisces (Mercury is in that sign) but everyone.. Communication problems, arguments, confusions, missing documents, issues with commerce, troublesome young people etc are all signs of Mercury retrograde period. Will last till 18th March.
25th – Sun square-Jupiter – -Affects Leos and Sagittarian. As Mercury retrogrades in Pisces and Sun is in Pisces, this will have a stronger impact on Pisces too. (Also Pisces & Gemini)
March 2013 (so far)
4th – Venus square Jupiter — Librans, Taureans and Sagittarians affected mainly. (Also Pisces, Gemini)
10th – Mercury (r) square Jupiter — Geminis and Sagittarians strongly affected. (Also Pisces & Gemini)
Well, that brings us up to the present day. I’ll write up (promise) the forecasts for the rest of March’13 in a bit more detail (positive ones and stressful ones) in a day or so.
Don’t panic.. There is a good thing in the horizon.. This weekend, Mercury becomes stationary..(from 3 weeks of retrograding) and starts to go Direct.
Forecasts for January (13th – 19th January’13)
