Astrology Podcast en español

Hi! Here are the 3 Astro Highlights of the week from August 10, 2020 to August 16, 2020.

First Astro Highlight.

The first Astro Highlight of the week is on Monday, August 10, when Mercury in Leo square Uranus in Taurus.

This transit brings changes to your daily routine which can cause upsets and nervousness. You may receive shocking news or experience something unexpected that forces you to change plans or experience car and telephone break downs.

Difficulties and misunderstandings in your communications  can lead to arguments. You are more likely to offend others and be offended under this influence. On the positive side, you have the ability to view things in a different way or have original ideas. 

During this transit, you want to think twice before making bold statements, and double check your documents. Avoid making spontaneous decisions or agreeing to things on the spur of the moment but remaining flexible and open-minded.

Second Astro Highlight.

The second Astro Highlight is on Wednesday, August 13, Mars in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn. This energy is about confrontations because you have an intense desire to gain control over others or of situations. You may have to deal with other people trying to dominate you.

Avoid being a victim, being jealous, and do underhanded tactics. Try not to be too assertive or make others feel threatened especially with bosses or those in a position of authority. People with more power than you will have the upper hand during this transit, since this is not the time to start fights or make enemies.

Third Astro Highlight.

Uranus Retrograde

The third Astro Highlight is on Thursday August 14, Uranus retrograde in Taurus.  Uranus retrograde starts on August 15, 2020, at 10° Taurus and ends on January 18, 2021, at 6° Taurus. 

During the Uranus retrograde, it starts internal changes in attitude or behaviors which are important to make to get the desired change possible. Often the changes you attempt to find is for more personal freedom. You may process things internally before you manifest the external change once Uranus goes direct in January 2021. 

Another possibility is that you may be a bit rebellious and try to force radical change. Uranus retrograde will bring higher self-awareness and insights about mistakes made in the past.

Hi, I hope this finds you well and in good health! Before starting on the 3 Astro Highlights of the Week, I would like to take this opportunity to say Happy Birthday to USA, which is celebrating a birthday on July 4, 2020.

USA Solar Return.

USA Solar Return

The solar return chart of the United States show that we will have a year concentrated on taxes, sex and sex abuse, financial support, insurance, the occult, aliens, and secrets coming to light. As to the job market, there will be unexpected changes with more technology usage. Maybe jobs will feel less of servitude and more of providing good quality service.

The healthcare system will go through a radical change as well. Lastly, we will all be driven to work hard and reach success. It will be a year filled with a lot of twists and turns with a little bit of surprises.

3 Astro Highlights.

Now let’s start with the 3 Astro Highlights of the week starting from June 29, 2020 to July 5, 2020.

First Astro Highlight.

Jupiter conjunct Pluto

The first Astro Highlight of the week is on Tuesday, June 30, 2020, when Jupiter in Capricorn conjunct Pluto in Capricor for a second time. The third time these two (2) planets meet again will be on November 12, 2020. Please note that both planets are retrograde. We may see more talks about government aid, revisiting stay home orders, and certain businesses closing again since the virus on the rise. The key to all of this is to transform the negative into positive in this new world. We are invited to transform and grow a new vision that works for all of us during these uncertain times. We must strengthen our faith and know that fear is only an illusion.

Second Astro Highlight.

Saturn Retrograde in Capricorn

The second Astro Highlight is on Wednesday, July 1, 2020, when Saturn retrogrades back into Capricorn. This is a reminder that we still have some unfinished business having to do with structure, responsibility, displicine, and karma. We have to reevaluate our commitments and see what we wish to invest our time in.

Third Astro Highlight.

Full Moon, Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn

The third Astro Highlight of the week is on Sunday, July 5, 2020. We have a full moon, lunar eclipse at 13 degrees of Capricorn. This lunar eclipse opposes Mercury retrograde and trines Uranus in Taurus. This opposition with Mercury retrograde indicates that communication is important but it may be distorted and unclear making it difficult to resolve issues.

The lunar eclipse trines Uranus in Taurus bring sudden confirmation of emotions. You are able to express emotions without getting upset. It may be an opportunity to recognize your feelings for a bad situation and be able to heal and move on. Sudden insight of oneself can lead to self awareness.

Lastly, this is not a good time to do intentions, moonwater, rituals, etc. since the energy is strong, forceful, and conflicting. Also, this energy can last up to 6 months.

The Royal Sign: Leo

Leo

Leo season starts today, July 22, 2019! Finally, we are out of the water and into the sun.

Leo is the fifth sign on the Zodiac. Its element is fire and its modality is Fixed. Leo is ruled by the Sun. On the world chart, Leo can be found in the fifth (5th) house. The fifth house rules children, love, and creativity. Key traits associated with Leo are: loyal, powerful, and enthusiastic.

Recognizing a Leo.

A Leo is recognized usually by their mane of wavy, dark or reddish blonde hair. Their walk is straight, proud, and their head held high with an air of royalty. Look and see how a cat walks and that’s exactly how a Leo walks but know that they will pounce on you at any given time. They have a bright smile with pearly, shiny, and bright white teeth. They emanate a magnetic energy that grabs people’s attention. They are very self-aware of their appearance especially their hair. Hair is very important to them.  They are kind, warm, and outgoing. They put on quite a show not only for attention but to aspire to have the best things in life.

Their voice is commanding. They have a way of delegating with a fair of dramatics. You should see my Leo cousin in action. In her most commanding and dramatic way, she tells my little cousins that her house is a “dictatorship and not a democracy”. She has them repeat it too, and rightfully so because she IS the Queen and Dictator of HER HOUSE.

Leo Sun.

Leo Suns are open-hearted and friendly. The have a commanding presence when entering a room and people will stop what they are doing and take notice of the Leo.

Leos are very loyal almost to a fault. This can lead to stubbornness but not as bad as a Taurus. They may hold on tightly to situations and people for a very long time until finally they let go.

Leos are extremely courageous but can be scaredy cats. One minute the are ruling the jungle and the next minute they are afraid of water. But why does this happen? I think it happens because a little bit of insecurity has seeped in and gets the best of them.

Moon in Leo.

Those with a moon in Leo have strong emotions that are truly felt with the heart. If you have a moon in Leo, you are a quick learner when your feelings are involved. However, if there are no feelings, you move on quickly from that subject into something that really moves you. If someone wants to change your mind, they must change your feelings first. 

The Leo moon needs to be center of attention and likes to take on public roles. They are extremely good in leadership roles. Most will have a show business personality and will do well in theater, music, and painting. Leo Moons are also drawn to the finer things in life – good food, beautiful clothes, etc. With a huge and generous heart, they like to pick up the check because that’s just how they roll.

Also, this moon is the “Who da fuq are you?!” Moon. If someone ever tells you this condensing statement, please know that this person has a moon in Leo. If you get asked this particular question, you must immediately recognize that you are in the presence of royalty and keep your mouth shut or else suffer the consequences. Don’t mess with the heart of gold.

Mercury Symbol

Mercury in Leo.

People with Mercury in Leo, speak with authority, style, and straight from the heart. They are passionate speakers and will get their message across in a dramatic and creative way. They want others to know about their presence of mind. They are very good at persuading others by warmth. They make good storytellers because they will know where to insert drama points.

On the downside, they can be fixated and prideful on their opinions. It is very hard to change their mind. To change their mind, you will have to play to their ego a bit and deal with mental arrogance.

Venus in Leo.

People with Venus in Leo are very prideful and are demanding lovers. They love romantic attention and are loyal to their partners. They like to show off their partners and will show off to their partners when they receive advances from others. Remember, Leos love attention. To please them, you must give them attention but above all you must show your loyalty and respect to them. When they feel loved, they give back loyalty and respect. Treat them like a King or Queen and you will be treated same.

Mars symbol in gold
Mars Symbol

Mars in Leo.

People with Mars in Leo have a strong need to create something to give meaning and purpose to their lives. Passion and desire are extreme. They enjoy taking risks and are passionate about adventures. They are ambitious and will attain anything that they want. Negatively, if you humiliate a Mars in Leo person, they get offended intensely. Watch out for their claws!

Lion

Overall, Leos have a knack for flair. A role as a leader comes naturally and easy for them. The world knows exactly when a Leo is happy and when they are sad because they are expressive with their feelings. At times, they can be stubborn. But if you happen to befriend a Leo, always know that they have your back and will give you the shirt of their back. 

Hope you have an awesome Leo Season!

Mercury in Gatorade

WHAT? Gatorade? No! It’s in R-E-T-R-O-G-R-A-D-E. People, let’s not freak out. It’s not the end of the world even if we already have other planets retrograding. Yes, this is a time for a lot of miscommunications, misunderstandings, disruption in technology, and confusion. There may be some cheating and stealing involved during this period, as well. But still, it’s really not that bad at all. This is a time to reflect and make better choices.

Mercury

I’ve already had friends and clients reach out to me to ask “What does Mercury Retrograde mean?” and “How is this going to affect me?” and my response is: This isn’t a time to worry about just Mercury Retrograde, instead what they should really do is look at ALL the aspects in their life and do away with things, situations, and/or people who no longer meet their values or hold a true meaning in their lives. It is really okay to leave friendships, relationships, etc. that are toxic because we all come into this world to learn and evolve. 

And if you really want to see where Mercury retrograde will affect you, look at your chart and see which house the transiting Mercury Retrograde is in. The house in your natal astrology chart will give you an indication as to where all the disruption will be. Continue reading to see how Mercury Retrograde affects each house.

What does Mercury Retrograde mean?

The planet Mercury rules communication, electronics, travel, contracts, and automobiles, and thieves. Mercury goes retrograde about three (3) times a year. It is said that Mercury moves in an opposite direction to planet Earth, so it gives the illusion that Mercury is moving backwards or moving in retrograde. But in reality, Mercury is just moving slower than Earth.

Honestly, Mercury in retrograde is really not a bad thing because it is an opportunity to take a pause in life and re-look at what’s going on in life to be able to review and make better choices and decisions. Yes, there are moments of confusion but it’s at those times that you need to step up and ask for clarification. At this time, you want to focus on doing the following:

  • review
  • reassess
  • re-think
  • reevaluate
  • renovate
  • renew
  • redo
  • reflect
  • realign
  • re-check
  • relearning
  • revisit
  • reconnect
  • reorganize
  • refine
  • refocus
  • release

Mercury Retrograde through the Houses.

If you know where you Mercury is in your natal chart, then you will be able to see where you will be affected. Below is my interpretation of Mercury Retrograde in the 12 houses.

Mercury Retrograde in the 1st house: Relearning and getting to know yourself again.

Mercury Retrograde in the 2nd house: Re-evaluate and reassess your values and finances.

Mercury Retrograde in the 3rd house: Relearn a language and refine your skills. Possible breakdowns in automobiles. Get your cars checked.

Mercury Retrograde in the 4th house: Reorganize your home. Re-check your alarm systems to avoid break-ins.

Mercury Retrograde in the 5th house: Reconnecting with ex-lovers whether you want to or not. Reconnect with a passion or hobby that was long forgotten.

Mercury Retrograde in the 6th house: Redo your routines and diets.

Mercury Retrograde in the 7th house: Re-evaluate your relationships with partners. A breakdown in communication can led to a breakup.

Mercury Retrograde in the 8th house: Redefine your definition of death. Possibly a time for rebirth of yourself and spirituality.

Mercury Retrograde in the 9th house: Re-check all of your flight information. Possibility of missing flights. Also, re-think how you can expand your higher consciousness.

Mercury Retrograde in the 10th house: Refocus your career goals and status.

Mercury Retrograde in the 11h house: Reconnect with friends. Revive old dreams.

Mercury Retrograde in the 12th house: Review all your fears and release it from your life, including your Karma.

All the craziness of tardiness, break downs, and miscommunications will be over once Mercury is done retrograding. In the meantime, hang in there and don’t rush to make quick decisions.
