Heads Up!

The Writer’s Astrological Almanac

by Kathy Watts

February 2017

all times PST

February! We’re ripping through this year. Are you writing as fast? Do it. There’s a lot going on, and a lot to say. We start with the Moon at the start of the Zodiac, in Aries. It’s a Wednesday, Mercury’s day of the week, so we can craft a month of sharp, fiery wit, if we so choose.

Wed Feb 01 the Moon is in Aries all day. Mercury is sextile Chiron. Don’t be afraid to write about what hurts. Don’t be afraid at all. You don’t have to show it to anyone.

Thu Feb 02 the Moon conjoins Uranus in Aries. Be bold and surprise yourself. Look at something from a radically different angle. A few hours later Mercury squares Jupiter. If you think you’ve gone overboard, so what? That’s what editing is all about.

Fri Feb 03 the Moon is in Taurus when Venus leaves Pisces and enters Aries. Aesthetics gets brighter, bolder, sharper, and more realistic. Note that this is Venus’s day of the week, too.

Sat Feb 04 the Moon enters Gemini at 8:44 pm. Heads Up for mercurial activities and greater productivity of all kinds. Don’t waste a minute. Read, write, talk, listen, and network.

Sun Feb 05 the Moon is in Gemini when Jupiter turns stationary retrograde in Libra. This buys us more time to work on relationships, like with agents, writing partners and groups, publishers, you get the idea.

Mon Feb 06 the Moon leaves Gemini at 11:03 pm and enters Cancer. It may have been mostly the weekend, but did you get much done? Did you accumulate more research material? Did you eavesdrop enough? (How is that ever possible for a writer?)

Tue Feb 07 the Moon is in Cancer when Mercury leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius. Thoughts and thought processes may widen in scope and become sharper. The little things can be the big things, and big things little. It’s in the nature of metaphor.

Wed Feb 08 the Moon is in Cancer all day. Do you work at home? Good. If not, do you work with dedication? Good. Remember, all day. A break for tea is permitted.

Fri Feb 10 we have the Full Moon at 22 Leo. It’s also a Lunar Eclipse. Heads Up. Acknowledge the nobility of what you do. You may be speaking for more than just yourself. Your audience is also much bigger than you realize. Make this your mission in the coming lunar month.

Wed Feb 15 the Moon conjoins Jupiter in Libra. Be lucky with writing partners and critique groups. We are having a month of Wednesdays with the Moon in cardinal signs. Start projects, Start some cleanup efforts that complete projects but don’t feel like completions. You know what they say in fiction: every good ending is a beginning.

Fri Feb 17 the Moon is in Scorpio all day. Be serious. If you can’t be serious, be sincere. Today is the last day that the Sun spends in the cool crisp air of Aquarius. Tomorrow the world may seem more murky and emotional. Heads Up.

Sat Feb 18 the Moon is still in Scorpio when the Sun changes signs, leaves Aquarius, and enters Pisces. Heads Up. Feelings get deeper and emotional currents may develop rip tides. Love what you do, and do it with abandon. Sometimes no boundaries can work in your favor. About seven hours later the Moon enters Sagittarius. Don’t isolate yourself. Get out and see what the current mood is.

Mon Feb 20 the Moon conjoins Saturn in Sagittarius. You may not work fast, but you will work anyway. No number of distractions (and they may be several) will stop you.

Tue Feb 21 the Moon is in Capricorn when Mercury makes a trine with Jupiter. Ideas and plot complications fall out of the sky for you today. If you’re not outlining or plotting, take notes for later. You have to be grateful whenever it’s easy.

Wed Feb 22 the Moon is in Capricorn all day. At 1:03 am Mars squares Pluto. Heads Up. It’s a good day to write scenes rich in conflict, disagreement, and clashes of will of all kinds. Try to keep it on the page. At 11:34 am the Moon conjoins Pluto in Capricorn. Tighten the seatbelt on your writing chair and don’t let the world knock you sideways. Heads Up.

Thu Feb 23 the Moon is in Aquarius when Mercury makes a sextile with Saturn. A cool, well organized head prevails today and you can fix a lot of structural problems. It’s also not a bad day to copy edit or proofread.

Sat Feb 25 the Moon is in Aquarius when Mercury moves out of Aquarius and enters Pisces at 3:07 pm. Work diligently early in the day and be ahead of the game if the afternoon gets disorganized. At 4:24 pm the Moon enters Pisces. If you’re too easily distracted, take a break and walk away for a bit. At 4:36 pm the Moon conjoins Mercury in Pisces. Heads Up. It’s rarely possible to do or say everything that’s in your mind. It’s also the day before the New Moon. Heads Up for safety’s sake.

Sun Feb 26 we have the New Moon at 08 Pis. It’s also a Solar Eclipse. Heads Up! This eclipse is very close to Neptune, too, so the outside world may be more moody than usual. This is at 6:58 am. At 12:56 pm the Moon conjoins Neptune in Pisces. A dream may try to make its way into the waking world. Make it a constructive dream. At 4:19 pm Mars conjoins Uranus in Aries. Restlessness and recklessness are a dangerous combination. Maybe put off that rewrite for a while. Heads Up.

Mon Feb 27 the Moon is in Pisces when Mars opposes Jupiter. Heads Up. It may not be a great day to do that editing and trimming the word count (although it’s almost always good to kill adverbs on sight). It’s a great day for rereading, though.

Tue Feb 28 the Moon is in Aries all day. The Moon conjoins Venus at 6:55 pm. If the work day was all business, the evening is great for a social escape. It’s Mardi Gras. Let the good times roll in a beautiful way!

It’s a short but serious month, with eclipses and a very active Mars. You can resist kneejerk reactions, impatient decisions, bad tempers, and unfounded anger by keeping your eye on your work. One good thing about Pisces is that it let’s the whole world in without you needing to open the door for it. You can write about anything, and perhaps you should give it a short try if you haven’t already.

There are rules and conventions in writing. The good news is, when you create a fictional world, you make the rules, too. If the outside real world gets unreasonable (like it usually is), you can still keep a grip on the world you are creating. Your characters, and your audience, are counting on you. Heads Up!!

Heads Up! January 2017 Forecast

Heads Up!

The Writer’s Astrological Almanac

By Kathy Watts

January 2017

(all times are PST)

Happy New Year! Another year bites the dust, We can make this new one as happy and productive a year as we want and need. The year starts on a Sunday, the Sun’s day of the week. So long as we remember to shine, every day, we can reach out and touch gold. Be the best we can be. Write the best and truest that we can write. That’s the Sun for you.

Sun Jan 01 the Moon is Aquarius all day. Think big, observe more of the big picture, and prepare for a bigger audience. The Moon makes a trine with Jupiter in the morning. Being lucky wants to be easy. Late that night, the Moon conjoins Venus. Prepare to be popular and in demand.

Mon Jan 02 the Moon conjoins Neptune in Pisces. Sweet dreams, sleeping or waking. Two and a half hours later the Moon conjoins Mars. Now here’s motivation. Shortly before midnight, Venus changes signs, leaves Aquarius and enters Pisces. Feel better connected to your work.

Wed Jan 04 the Moon is in Pisces when Mercury retrograde changes signs, slipping out of Capricorn and back into Sagittarius. Keep working hard anyway. There’s no rush.

Thu Jan 05 the Moon conjoins Uranus in Aries. Spot, or invent, a plot twist. Two hours later the Moon makes an opposition to Jupiter. If it’s not working out to your pleasure, pull back a little.

Fri Jan 06 the Moon is in Taurus when the Sun conjoins Pluto in Capricorn. Heads Up. Don’t let anything sudden throw you off balance. Do solid work, and feel secure in your writers’ circle or other literary support group.

Sun Jan 08 the Moon is in Taurus when Mercury goes stationary direct. Heads Up in the best of ways. That wasn’t so bad, was it? And you got a lot of work done. Furthermore, at 2:06 pm the Moon departs from Taurus and enters Gemini. It’s a great start to a Mercurial writing/reading/networking bash that lasts into Tuesday afternoon. It’s another bright Heads Up!

Tue Jan 10 the Moon is still in Gemini when the Sun squares Uranus. Be flexible and don’t expect a recent surprise fix to solve all your problems. At 1:38 pm the Moon opposes Mercury and then goes void of course until the Moon enters Cancer at 2:49 pm. I consider this an excuse for an early tea time.

Wed Jan 11 the Moon is in Cancer all day. Resist constant snacking, although the random work break is perfectly fine.

Thu Jan 12 we have the Full Moon at 22Can. Heads Up. You know what you love to do, and where to do it, and for whom you do it. Hold those thoughts. Two and a half hours later Mercury changes signs and reenters Capricorn. If work ethic has been fading, this will revive it.

Wed Jan 18 the Moon is in Libra all day and conjoins Jupiter near the end, at 11:27 pm. Work with authority and feel lucky all day. Today is also the last day that the Sun spends in the sign of Capricorn. Tomorrow the world may not seem much warmer, but it may seem bigger and brighter.

Thu Jan 19 the Moon is in Libra when the Sun moves out of Capricorn and enters Aquarius. Heads Up. Your audience is bigger than you realize. About a half hour later, the Moon enters Scorpio. Scorpio and Aquarius are two Fixed signs and this can add a lot of stubbornness and persistence to your day. Work through and with it. Heads Up.

Tue Jan 24 the Moon conjoins Saturn in Sagittarius. You can be serious in a sociable, fun way. It’s a good mix of energies for constructive networking.

Wed Jan 25 the Moon is in Capricorn all day. At 3:58 pm the Moon conjoins Mercury. Write on!

Thu Jan 26 the Moon conjoins Pluto in Capricorn. Have you gotten serious yet? If not, consider doing so now. This is also the day before the New Moon. Heads Up for safety and being smart in general.

Fri Jan 27 is the New Moon at 08 Aqu. Heads Up. Start something new and big, and not aimed at yourself. At 9:39 pm, Mars changes signs, leaving Pisces and entering its home sign Aries. Heads Up! Jump out of the frying pan of planning and into the flames of creation.

Mon Jan 30 the Moon conjoins Neptune in Pisces. Dreams are powerful. Don’t toss them aside.

Tue Jan 31 the Moon conjoins Venus in Pisces at 9:36 am and goes void of course. Stay emotionally committed to your work, in the biggest way possible.

The Moon enters Aries at 1:46 pm and conjoins Mars in Aries at 6:52 pm. Heads Up for an emotional and active day.

Shortly before the last year ended, there was the most magical conjunction of Mars and Neptune. Neptune is the master dream maker. Mars is the master motivator and is the master of manifesting in the real world. Dream with extreme prejudice what you want for the coming year, and make it happen.

2017 is a brand new year, and it’s ours. No matter what the outside world sends our way, we have control of our inner world. That’s where our best work comes from. Without that, what chance do we have of seeing ourselves for what we are? We control the horizontal. We control the vertical. We do. It’s ours. Every single day. One day at a time. Ours. Make this the best, strongest, brightest year yet. Heads Up!

Heads Up!

The Writer’s Astrological Almanac

By Kathy Watts

October 2016

(all times are PDT)

October starts on a Saturday with the Moon in Libra. Weekends with the Sun in Libra can all be party time, and there’s no bigger party than the one you write. Go out and have some fun, too, okay?

Mon Oct 03 the Moon conjoins Venus in Scorpio. Polish something that you really care about. It doesn’t matter if no one else ever gets to see it.

Wed Oct 05 the Moon enters Sagittarius at 1:26 am. Dream big. Write big. Edit later.

Thu Oct 06 the Moon conjoins Saturn in Sagittarius. Just like yesterday, dream and work big, but now with a bit more control. Skip any critique and edit later.

Fri Oct 07 the Moon is still in Sagittarius when Mercury changes signs, finally leaving Virgo and entering Libra. Thoughts turn to social interactions, fairness and fun, and how to cleverly keep the peace. Now there are some big literary themes. (continue reading…)

September 2016

(all times are PDT)

Like New Moons? Like Solar Eclipses? Happy September 1! Start the month with a fresh approach, and a fresh feeling. Autumn is not that far off. And remember, Mercury is retrograde.

Thu Sep 01 is the New Moon and Solar Eclipse at 9 Vir. Heads Up. It’s pretty much opposed Neptune, too. Be safe and work on the small important stuff first. In the evening the Sun squares Saturn. Don’t judge what you wrote today. You’ll like it better tomorrow.

Fri Sep 02 the Sun makes an opposition to Neptune at 9:38 am. Let the dreamy fog dissolve and see things more clearly. At 10:18 am Mercury retrograde conjoins Jupiter in Virgo. Trust your first impression, write fast, and edit later. At 3:00 pm the Moon conjoins Mercury, and at 3:13 pm the Moon conjoins Jupiter and goes void of course. Write fast, write a lot and don’t worry about how much of it may make the cut. At long last the Moon enters Libra at 5:55 pm. Now go have a pleasant evening.

Sat Sep 03 the Moon conjoins Venus in Libra. Hold your head up high and smile. You’re writing. You don’t even have to tell anybody about it. (continue reading…)

August starts on a Monday with the Moon in Cancer until the evening. Feelings are high but they may also be tender. It’s also the day before the New Moon in Leo. Heads Up!

Tue Aug 02 the Moon is very dark in Leo when Mars changes signs, leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius. About two hours later is the New Moon at 10 Leo. Things should really brighten up now. Don’t let anything get you down.

Wed Aug 03 the Moon is in Leo all day. Write like the champion you are. In the evening the Moon conjoins Venus in Leo and then goes void of course. Don’t worry about making anything look or sound better. Do that later.

Stay on track, do little things, but maybe more of them. (continue reading…)
