Heads Up!

The Writer’s Astrological Almanac

by Kathy Watts

January 2018

all times PST

Happy 2018! I mean it. We are the ones who get to make it happy, or not. So let’s go with the happy and have a grand, productive year.

The year starts on a Monday, the Moon’s day, with a Full Moon four hours and twenty-three minutes after perigee, a Super Moon, and a King Tide. Think big, bright, beautiful, and powerful. The Moon can reflect the will of the people, and it’s my wish that we the people will work to take care of ourselves and each other, in the most familial and unselfish of ways. The Sun may be in Capricorn but the Moon is in Cancer.

Mon Jan 01 the Moon in Cancer opposes Saturn, then Venus, then at 6:24 pm opposes the Sun. This gives us the Full Moon at 11 Can. Be as shy or withdrawn as you please but work diligently at what matters most to you. This can be a great lunar month. Twenty-eight minutes later the Moon trines Neptune. This is enough to bring your aspirations back to mind. Later the Moon trines Mars. Sleep well and wake up energized and determined.

Tue Jan 02 the Moon is in Cancer when Uranus goes direct. It’s only been retrograde since August 2, 2017. If you notice (or imagine) an increase in creative wildness, blame it on Uranus.

Wed Jan 03 the Moon is in Leo all day. Write with daring and flamboyance.

Sat Jan 06 the Moon is in Virgo when Mercury trines Uranus at 3:39 pm. You can invent your way out of any plot complication. Exactly one hour later Mars conjoins Jupiter in Scorpio. Sometimes too much of a good thing is not enough. Heads Up for a lively evening. Write early if you can.

Mon Jan 08 the Moon is in Libra when the Sun conjoins Venus in Capricorn at 11:02 pm This is applying all day long. Work happily on those things that you love. Your love will show. Heads Up. Keep in mind, the conjunction of the Sun and Pluto are still applying. Tension may be rising. Heads Up.

Tue Jan 09 the Moon is happily still in Libra when Venus conjoins Pluto at 1:03 am. Heads up for a wild and crazy late night romantic fling, or for a wild and crazy secluded writing bash. Wait, we’re not done. Thirty minutes later at 1:33 am the Sun conjoins Pluto in Capricorn. Feeling anxious, inferior, or overlooked? Rest well and when you get up, work it. It’s not true. Work through it and don’t judge anything, Let results speak for themselves. There’s nothing to defend or explain. Heads up in the best and most personally powerful of ways.

Wed Jan 10 the Moon is in Scorpio when Mercury changes signs, leaves Sagittarius, and enters Capricorn to team up with Venus, Saturn, and Pluto. Heads Up. This pile-up of planets in Cap or Aquarius is the norm and nothing unique to this year. Settle down, and write.

Thu Jan 11 the Moon conjoins Jupiter in Scorpio at 12:21 am. Dream something encouraging At 4:34 am, the Moon then conjoins Mars in Scorpio. When you get up, get up and go!

Fri Jan 12 the Moon is in Sagittarius when Mercury conjoins Saturn in Capricorn. Heads Up. Even if you don’t have the time, your mind will be on the project at hand. Don’t frustrate yourself. Do it anyway.

Sun Jan 14 the Moon conjoins Saturn in Capricorn at 5:49 pm. Heads Up. Keep a low profile, maybe escape early, go home and write. At 11:03 pm the Moon conjoins Mercury in Capricorn. Heads Up. If you go to bed early, the mental wheels will keep turning, so you know.

Mon Jan 15 the Moon is in Capricorn all day. However, tomorrow is the New Moon, which carries an automatic Heads Up. Be careful, take a few more precautions, and don’t hesitate to double-check anything.

Tue Jan 16 a very dark Moon conjoins Pluto in Capricorn at 2:54 am. Heads Up for perhaps a striking dream. At 6:17 pm we have the New Moon at 26 Cap. Heads Up. I’m thinking of this as a personal “clean up and finish stuff rather than start new stuff” sort of lunar month. Think of all the time and space that can start to create. At 10:30 pm the newly reborn Moon conjoins Venus. This happens in the closing degrees of Capricorn. Go to bed happy with a job well done.

Wed Jan 17 the Moon is in Aquarius when Venus changes signs and enters Aquarius. Romance writers, you have a bigger audience than you realize. Do them justice.

Thu Jan 18 the Moon is in Aquarius all day. It’s also the last day that the Sun spends in disciplinarian Capricorn. Tomorrow the world may seem bigger, a bit brighter, but every bit as serious. Heads Up.

Fri Jan 19 the Moon enters Pisces at 12:26 pm. At 5:08 Mercury sextiles Neptune (the modern ruler of Pisces). At 7:09 pm the Sun changes signs, leaving Capricorn and entering Aquarius. Heads Up. Mind you, both Cap and Aqu are ruled by Saturn. Intensity won’t drop. This cusp is sometimes thought of as a gateway of some sort. At 7:28 pm, the Moon sextiles Saturn. Heads Up for a gentle transition as we move across this cusp. Stay diligent and sharp. Saturn likes that.

Tue Jan 22 the Moon conjoins Uranus in Aries at 8:16 pm. Journal those wild and crazy ideas so you can flesh them out tomorrow. Now lighten up, enjoy your evening, and sleep well.

Wed Jan 23 the Moon is in Taurus when Mercury conjoins Pluto in Capricorn at 12:50 pm. Heads Up. What you plan to do today may get preempted, but by something way better. Run with it. We’re getting a month of Wednesdays with the Moon predominately in fixed signs. Well, we know what we want to work on, don’t we?

Fri Jan 26 the Moon is in Taurus when Mars changes signs, leaves its traditional home sign Scorpio and moves into fiery Sagittarius at 4:56 am. Not a bad trade for those of us deep in some process. Heads Up. At 9:40 am the Moon leaves Taurus and moves into writer-artist-clever-person-friendly Gemini. Heads Up from now until Sunday morning for all the mercurial fun and fabrication that you can fantasize into being! Start right away because this window of opportunity closes fast.

Sat Jan 27 the Moon is in Gemini when Mercury squares Uranus at 11:08 pm. If you’ve been zipping along in hyper drive, it may time to downshift.

Sun 28 Jan the Moon is still in Gemini when Mercury sextiles Chiron at 10:50 am. Consider using kinder words. At 10:57 am the Moon leaves Gemini and moves into Cancer. Did you get much done? Yes. Perhaps it’s time for a substantial lunch.

Wed Jan 31 the Moon is in Leo all day. We end this month with a resounding bang of Heads Up. We have the Full Moon at 11 Leo at 5:27 am. Perigee was yesterday so it’s not as super a moon as on January 1, but it’s still pretty super. It’s also a lunar eclipse. Go out and look, if you can. Consider being more daring on behalf of yourself, your society, and your world at large. Heads Up. At 5:39 am Mercury changes signs, leaving Capricorn and entering Aquarius. Heads Up again. Thought turn to the concerns of large groups of people. A lot of them may be your readers. Keep working it.

January may be packed with Capricorn concerns, but that’s a good thing when you love what you’re working to do and do well. Capricorn is hard to satisfy, so if you’re not satisfied with your progress or success or whatever, welcome to the world of Capricorn. Be honest with yourself, though, and don’t belittle any of your own efforts or intentions. Who measures up well to impossibly high standards? Not anyone I know.

You can do what you can do. Make it your best, and don’t look back. No regrets. Day by day, throughout the coming new year, own it, own it all. It’s your time to craft what touches your heart and reaches out to comfort, amuse, inspire, and challenge the world.

Look out world, because here we come. Heads Up!

Heads Up!

The Writer’s Astrological Almanac

December 2017

All times are PST.

December, the tenth month since spring, and for most of us the end of the year. Think, and act, like a boxer, and finish strong. The month is packed with Saturn and Capricorn, but there are plenty of other influences. The last Mercury retrograde of the year is in Sagittarius. The Full Moon in Gemini is a supermoon, bright and high in the sky. Buckle up for a month of wild swings high and low. Be happy that we start on a Friday, the day of the week ruled by Venus.

November 2017

All times are PDT until 2 am November 5, after which all times are PST.

November! The year is not winding down. It’s preparing for a strong finish. That’s the attitude you want now. The month starts on a Wednesday, the day ruled by Mercury, so you can think whatever and however you like, and make it happen if you stay on top of things.

Wed Nov 01 the Moon is in Aries all day. A Mercury-Chiron trine should keep you on your toes.

Thu Nov 02 the Moon conjoins Uranus in Aries. Make some surprises or innovations, you know, just to see how they turn out. (continue reading…)

October 2017

All times are PDT.

October at last! Summer is really over now (although not hurricane season). We are in the heart of pumpkin season. Earlier efforts may be bearing fruit, and that’s great, but it’s almost secondary to the continuing growth of the work in hand. This can be a very productive month. Stick with it!

Sun Oct 01 the Moon is in Aquarius all day. It’s the Sun’s day of the week. And, we start the month with a Mars-Pluto trine in the earth signs. We can accomplish a lot all month long if we remember to pursue our true passions and be willing to rock the boat if necessary.

Tue Oct 3 the Moon is in Pisces all day and conjoins Neptune at 5:45 am. Wake with dreams that are worth writing about.

Wed Oct 04 the Moon is in Pisces half the day, and in the Aries for the second half. If you dream away the first half, you’ll more than make up for it in the second. (continue reading…)

September! The Sun is in less hysterical Virgo, Mercury is still retrograde, and the solar eclipse is behind us, mostly. The month starts on a Friday, the day of the week for Venus. Stay cheerful, keep working, and it will be autumn and Libra season before we know it. This is no time to slack. (continue reading…)

August, full of Sun, Mars, and eclipses. How hot is that? We shall see. The month starts on a Tuesday, the day of the week associated with Mars. Now how can that be a coincidence? Not. And, let’s toss in a Mercury retrograde while we’re at it. Ready or not, here August comes! (continue reading…)

July! Get ready for fireworks, hopefully of your own making. The month is full of big luck, big society, and big business. And, it starts on Saturn’s day of the week, so get serious in a big way. The Sun will soon be going home and will meet Mars there. Get inspired, then perspire and pump it out!

Sat July 1 the Moon is in Libra all day and conjoins Jupiter in the wee smalls. Get lucky with your friends and decompress a bit. You can write about it later. (continue reading…)

It’s June! The Sun is still in Gemini, moving north in the sky but not for long. Summer is coming (in the northern hemisphere, anyway). Get ready for the hot times ahead.

Thu June 01 the Moon is in Virgo all day. The Venus-Saturn trine in Fire signs should spice up whatever plans you think you have. Work slowly if you must, but keep at it. (continue reading…)

May 2017

All times are PDT.

Even if April has not gone out like a lamb, it’s still the merry and mighty month of May. Sharpen your people skills (it’s a Monday, after all) and work on what is near and dear to your heart and home. Convey what you’re feeling, and win hearts. Mercury is retrograde, but only for the first few days. Stay careful, and see good results all month long. (continue reading…)

April 2017

All times are PDT.

It’s April, and no fooling! The month starts on a Saturday, Saturn’s day of the week, so skip the fooling around and get a jump on your work load and on whatever works for you.

Sat Apr 01 the Moon is in Gemini, and trine Jupiter retrograde. Write as much as you can. Or, get out and socialize as much as you can and gather material.

Sun Apr 02 the Moon in Gemini opposes Saturn at 7:43 am and goes void of course until 11:27 am when the Moon enters Cancer. Lunch time! Did you get a lot done? At 5:25 pm Venus retrograde changes signs and enters Pisces by the back door. Heads Up, especially for romance writers.

Wed Apr 5 the Moon is in Leo all day. Sit up straight and know that what you write really rocks. Saturn goes retrograde at 10:06 pm. Heads Up. It may be a bit harder to resist interruptions.

Fri Apr 7 the Moon is in Virgo when the Sun opposes Jupiter retrograde. Jupiter is at its brightest and will be high in the night sky around 1 am. Go out and look if you can. Heads Up. Take a good look at how lucky you really are, and appreciate it all. Submit work today, and keep in touch with agents, editors, and your writing critique buddies.

Sat Apr 8 the Moon is in Virgo all day. The big news is, tomorrow starts the second Mercury retrograde period of the year. Heads Up. Keep calm and get organized and systematic. Do you know where your phone is? Good.

Sun Apr 9 the Moon is in Libra when Mercury goes stationary retrograde at 4 Tau. Heads Up. Stay organized at work, keep your home finances organized, drive safely, and you’re good. If this retrograde slows down your productivity, don’t fret. The retrograde will end in Aries and you’ll more than make up for it.

Mon Apr 10 the Moon conjoins Jupiter retrograde at 3:58 pm. You should have luck contacting people now. We have the Full Moon at 21 Lib later at 11:08 pm. It’s a month to love and be loved. Love what you’re working on, too. Passover begins.

Wed Apr 12 the Moon is in Scorpio all day. Nothing can discourage you from your work, except perhaps yourself. Just do it and don’t look back.

Thu Apr 13 the Moon is in Scorpio when the Sun conjoins Uranus in in Aries at 10:30 pm. Heads Up. Write surprising events that have serious consequences.

Sat Apr 15 the Moon is in Sagittarius all day. The big news is that Venus goes stationary direct at 26 Pis at 3:18 am. Heads Up. Write something secret and show it to no one. From April 15 through April 19 we have “only” three planets retrograde. Can you tell the difference? (continue reading…)
