This weekend we are going through a cathartic and challenging time but it’s a much anticipated moment by many because it sweeps away the last remnants of all difficulties we had in the last 6 months. There are some very important focal points in the sky which are carrying supporting light for those who need clarity and courage to move on or start afresh. Venus goes direct this Saturday marking the beginning of a new cycle and important realisation through an eye opening moment related to our relationships and interactions with people. It seems a relief but Saturday Mercury goes retrograde so not everything is over, this time Mercury will bring lessons that we tend to overlook. We will be put in an artificial coma for a day just to recover and to receive new directions from the abyss of our source.

Friday is dynamic and challenging with a lot of wild energies. Apart from Venus being stationed for the last few hours before going direct, today Mars and the Moon are conjunct squaring Jupiter. This is potent combination that can release powerful energetic blast of emotional outburst which affects mainly those who are closest to us. The key here is to remain centred and balanced without going into extremes. Jupiter enlarges everything that it can reach and magnifies the effect of it. Friday morning this might get out of proportion for many because they will be feeling a touch, angry and snappy while the Moon is energised by Mars. If we allow emotions to dictate our actions and decisions, our day is going to be difficult and exhausting.

There is a very positive expression of these energies which is likely to dominate over the lower expression of the above aspects because Venus releases positive benevolent radiation softening the aggression coming from Mars. Those who manage to tune into it will feel confident and will have the courage to stand for them. It can be beneficial if you use this surge to make positive change in your life. You are likely to see things from your own perspective seeking activities that bring personal gain. In conversations with your closest ones you will be able to stand for yourself without hurting those you love. Again a word of warning, keep in mind that Jupiter magnifies things, so make sure you don’t assert your confidence too much because it can become arrogance.

Saturday is the day when finally Venus is moving forward but it is going to be influenced heavily by Mercury and Neptune and many will be floating just about the line of their awakened awareness. The day will start very late for many of us, we will be feeling low energy levels, no concentration and prone to errors. Neptune is conjuncting the Moon Saturday morning bringing powerful messages from our subconscious depths. This realigns our senses with our soul centre helping us to receive higher awareness about our life purpose. This all might come as a message in your dreams so you need to pay attention and try to remember.

Mercury is stationed ready to go retrograde just after midnight. He squares Neptune at an exact angle today making communications significantly more difficult. There are going to be misunderstandings, tendency to withhold information in order to avoid confrontation, and simply errors of the tongue. Try not to enter into any contracts or negotiations today, this can be very misleading and you will regret about your decisions.

People should be very vigilant about any fraudulent activities, avoid shady affairs and dealing with dishonest individuals. The lower aspect of this Mercury/Neptune square brings danger of falling victim to deception or distortion of the truth. This is likely to be a theme of this last Mercury retrograde period so keep it in mind and be careful.

The higher aspect of this transit creates conditions for powerful spiritual experiences because Mercury retrograde enhances our ability to communicate on a soul level and to receive communication from our higher self. This can be great time for many to receive clarity about their personal goals and what is important in their life. You will be able to get intuitive solutions to some of your dilemmas.

Sunday will be a day for releasing the internal pressure and recharging our batteries realising our inner strength through Mercury who is now retrograde. The energy levels are becoming more tangible, stable but placid and not so violent.

The square between Mercury and Neptune is still powerful but today its influence can help us to manifest our ideas and can enhance our creativity. This will be a great opportunity for writers, poets, and artists in general because tuning into a source of infinite ideas seems very intuitive today. There can be tendency towards experiencing subtler aspects of this reality and some people might feel extra sensitive at this time. Try to remain focused because it will be very easy to escape into a dream state. However if you are trying to reach some deep meditative states then this is a great time.

The Moon is conjuncting Chiron today creating conditions to identify hidden blocked emotions, fears or irrational feelings. This is also a very healing time because we have the ability to recognise the root cause of our troubles and to act upon it.

On another more mundane level  many people will spend time with loved ones helping with some personal projects or just looking after someone who needs attention and care. Emotions are positive and this will affect most people to be easy going and more relaxed. Self-discipline is not your strong side today, there is tendency towards choosing the path of no resistance in every activity.


The weekend tarot card is Strength corresponding to the sign of Leo.

Astroweekend 16th 17th 18th November 2018Keywords – Fortitude, patience, gentle power, strong, will power, courage.

The archetype of Strength represents your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual strength like that of the mighty Lion. Like the Lion, you are blessed with plenty of courage, which helps you overcome problems and obstacles.

Strength offers you a way to approach even difficult situations with patience and conviction. Your mastery is achieved softly, not through brute force but by exerting your will to solve a problem.

Strength reminds you that sometimes you must play the long game. Meaningful changes take time. You need to have the patience to hold space for others. You need to have the courage to face challenges. And you must have the fortitude to keep showing up no matter what setbacks you encounter.

It also reminds you of your power, the power to be gentle yet strong. It is power aligned with your heart and with your soul’s purpose. Strength shows you how to find that power and use it with courtesy, compassion, generosity, and self-discipline.


This weekend’s major is Strength. On Friday, Venus stations direct after six weeks retrograde and the day after, Mercury stations retrograde for three weeks. This confluence of Venus and Mercury is interesting. On the most basic level, those planetary archetypes represent heart and mind. With retrogrades we have a period of review. So a very clear message on a simple level with these two events flowing together is “change of heart followed by changed of mind”. Moreover, Mercury also speaks of fact and truth. At the time of the two stations, both planets are moving more slowly within the zodiac wheel, giving them a magnification effect. Here we encounter a lens, where heart meets mind. Previously, there may have been a disconnect between the two. Regardless of what is unfolding around you, heart, mind and truth get a chance to unify over the weekend – this is a point of realisation… an aha moment. Heart and mind integration is also a property of Strength. Desires seem to be in perpetual struggle with the requirements to act in a civilised way in our society. Usually, this means that for order to be upheld, mind must prevail over heart. This weekend the heart can get a little traction back to balance things out.

Rune Art by Gabrielle Gern

Astroweekend 16th 17th 18th NovemberThe first rune is Wunjo. Friday’s Venus station correlates to this rune. Alienation is overcome once Wunjo appears. Bonds can be restored and harmony can at last descend. We often have to work out complex thoughts and feelings within ourselves to reach a place of clarity and peace. This moment is heralded under the Venus direction change. What we feel and what we think are often confused, but now the feeling gets resolved. Over the coming weeks, the mental review will be much more about thoughts and getting those aligned and working properly. On Friday, the idea of connecting, or reconnecting, finally has chance to become more than just a fanciful notion.


Astroweekend 16th 17th 18th NovemberSaturday’s rune is Mannaz, the rune of the self. Interestingly, once the mirror image of Wunjo is met with Wunjo, it makes the glyph for Mannaz. This means that Saturday brings the acute question into the frame of self and other. How are you not only an independent self but also a whole self, in relation to another whole self? At our best, humans mutually constitute – we become two sides of the one coin, without lacking wholeness if the other is not present. This is not co-dependency but interdependency. Interesting that this progression on Saturday is connected both with Strength as integrating the mind and the deeper urges, but also with Mercury stationing retrograde. The question is “who am I within my individuality and who am I within my relationality?” The answer should be “the same person”. And the next three weeks will graphically highlight for you, the extent to which that is true… or not. Since Mercury squares Neptune today, the question of truth versus illusion will reverberate through the review period. Somebody else mirroring you does not equal truth. Who you are is defined within your boundary alone. The message today is “heart open but mind alert”…


Astroweekend 16th 17th 18th NovemberSunday brings the rune Ansuz, which is the communication rune. This is very interesting as Mercury rules not just thoughts, fact and truth, but also communication. Although retrograde, Mercury is nonetheless more or less not moving in the zodiac wheel. This is the day, if ever there was one, to communicate your deepest emotional honesty and factual truth to your loved ones. The power of your words aligned with your motivations and deepest truth have the capacity to turn tides. Sure, there will be cause to explore deeper communicative blocks that may have hindered you for a long time, over the coming weeks – but you can set your intentions on Sunday for how many important facets of your coming reality will unfold. Do not fear total honesty. It is the only thing capable of liberating your soul.
