Heads Up!

The Writer’s Astrological Almanac

by Kathy Watts

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.

Fri Nov 03 the Moon is in Taurus when the Sun trines Neptune. Fantasies may not survive this, but aspirations and ideals that touch your heart will do just fine. At 10:23 pm we have the Full Moon in Taurus. Settle down and get comfortable with yourself and your current project. A nice cup of tea won’t hurt. You cannot be moved.

Sun Nov 04 the Moon opposes Mercury at 1:29 am and goes void of course. You don’t have to rethink anything, but the desire may be great. Daylight savings time ends at 2 am. Ahhhh. At 2:29 am the Moon enters Gemini. Ramp up your creative, mercurial talents, and get a lot done in the next couple of days. At 11:19 am, Mercury changes signs, leaves Scorpio, and enters Sagittarius. Heads Up for bigger thoughts and grander settings and scenarios.

Tue Nov 07 the Moon leaves Gemini and enters Cancer at 2:45 am. Sweet dreams. At 3:38 am, Venus changes signs, leaving her home Libra and entering Scorpio. Heads Up. Romance gets secretive and perhaps sensational, all at the same time. What are you writing these days?

Wed Nov 08 the Moon is in Cancer all day. Stay home and write, if you can. Write and cook. Today is also when the Sun moves out of the Via Combusta, entering 16 Sco. Life does not instantly become a breeze, but you may feel a little less pressure.

Sat Nov 11 is a day of trines. The Moon in late Leo trines both Saturn and Uranus at 12:55 am and then goes void of course. It may be hard to sleep with so much happening in the end of Leo. Saturn itself trines Uranus at 1:45 am. At 8:41 am, the Moon enters Virgo and everything changes. You could get a lot done today, even with a lot of socializing.

Mon Nov 13 the Moon is in Virgo when Venus and Jupiter conjoin in Scorpio. Popularity and good luck can come by methodical actions. Tell that to your characters. At 2:48 pm Mercury squares Neptune. A good trick can always be bettered. Tell that to your characters, too.

Tue Nov 14 the Moon conjoins Mars in Libra. A difficult situation or discussion can be handled with more diplomacy. I bet there’s a place in your plot line for that.

Wed Nov 15 the Moon is in Libra all day. No matter how sociable, there will be no casual conversations today. Everything can inform your work.

Thu Nov 16 the Moon is in Scorpio all day. At 7:21 am Venus trines Neptune. You may have more wonderful schemes than you can ever hope to attempt. But you can still dream. At 4:02 pm the Sun conjoins Jupiter. In Scorpio. There could be a big breakthrough in a fundamental problem that greatly simplifies an unmanageable project.

Fri Nov 17 the Moon conjoins Venus 12:17 am. It’s a people person’s kind of day. It’s also the day before the New Moon. Heads Up. Be safe and careful in all the ways that count.

Sat Nov 18 12 we have the New Moon at 3:42 am at 26 Sco. Heads Up. If you’re serious about it, you can do it this month. The Moon then goes void of course until 10:59 am.

Sun Nov 19 the Moon is in Sagittarius when Mars squares Pluto. Heads Up. People may want to socialize, but they may also want to cause trouble. This is something else to tell your characters, should they be in need of plot complication. Bad tempers are also possible today.

Mon Nov 20 the Moon in Sagittarius conjoins Mercury at 2:37 am. Sleep if you can, otherwise the mind may whirl. The Moon then conjoins Saturn at 4:26 pm and goes void of course. That can help you hit the brakes, if you’re not already tired out. It’s also the last day that the Sun spends in secretive, seductive Scorpio. Tomorrow the world may seem to lighten up. Heads Up!

Tue Nov 22 the Moon is in Capricorn when the Sun changes signs, leaves Scorpio and enters the party animal sign Sagittarius. The holidays are looming, complete with deadlines. Neptune turns stationary direct today at 6:21 am. Mind you, Neptune has been retrograde since June 16 (outer planets spend a lot of time retrograde, in case you haven’t noticed) and we’ve no doubt gotten used to it. Now fantasy time may increase even more. Heads Up.

Wed Nov 23 the Moon is in Capricorn all day. At 11:00 am the Moon conjoins Pluto. Get a lot of work done, no matter what the world throws at you.

Sat Nov 25 the Moon is in Aquarius when Mercury trines Uranus at 2:56 am. If you keep a dream journal, prepare for some strange ones.

Sun Nov 26 the Moon conjoins Neptune in Pisces. It’s not a bad day to hide out at home and read or write.

Mon Nov 27 the Moon is in Pisces when at 10:58 pm Mercury conjoins Saturn in Sagittarius. Heads Up. Few things go as fast as we would like, except for those things that we can’t slow down. Be consistent if you can, and don’t look for instant gratification. Not today.

Wed Nov 29 the Moon is in Aries all day. We’ve had a month of Wednesdays with the Moon in cardinal signs. Have you started something new? Maybe more than one?

Thu Nov 30 the Moon conjoins Uranus in Aries. Experimentation is almost always worth the time and effort, in writing at least.

Scorpio does more stress than most signs, not that it likes stress any better. On the upside, Venus is busy this month, smoothing ruffled feathers where needed. Jupiter is in Scorpio now, too. Keep your eye on the prize that matters the most and you could be greatly rewarded. Be sure that you’re sincere.

There is still a lot of 2017 left, even though 2018 is looming. Don’t let up. There’s a saying in boxing that no matter how the fight is going, be sure to finish strong. We’re not done with this year yet. Heads Up!

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…)

Happy Spring!

Heads Up!

The Writer’s Astrological Almanac

by Kathy Watts

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…)

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. (continue reading…)

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. (continue reading…)

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…)

Heads Up!

The Writer’s Astrological Almanac

By Kathy Watts

June 2016

(all times are PDT)

June starts on a Wednesday, Mercury’s day of the week. That can keep the little mind active! The Sun itself is in Gemini, too. Do good things with this. Mars, Saturn, and Pluto are all retrograde now. By the middle of the month Neptune will be retrograde, too. Don’t be in too big a rush to do anything. Take your time. Do your best.

Wed Jun 01 the Moon conjoins Uranus in Aries. Heads Up. A frivolous little surprise is always a good excuse for a work break. Don’t let it eat the day.

Fri Jun 03 the Moon conjoins Mercury in Taurus. Work hard and be sociable. Yes, you can do both, although maybe not at the same time. At 8:01 pm the Moon leaves Taurus and enters the sign of Gemini. We have from now until Sunday evening to make the most of our mercurial inclinations and talents. Go for it. It’s also the day before the New Moon. Be safe. Heads Up. (continue reading…)

Heads Up!

The Writer’s Astrological Almanac

by Kathy Watts

March 1st – 7th times are Pacific Standard Time, PST until March 13 when PDT begins.)

March starts on a Tuesday, the day of the week for the planet Mars. Think of it as a high-energy month rather than a blustery contentious month. We have a lot of work that we care about, and nothing can slow us down once we get started.

Tue Mar 01 the Moon conjoins Saturn in Sagittarius. Be disciplined in a big way, and serious in a gentle way.

Wed Mar 02 the Moon is in Sagittarius all day. Is something ready to be submitted and sent out into the world? Do it. Network and query, too. The Moon makes a sextile with Mercury at 6:55 pm and goes void of course. This aspect has been applying all day long and can result in plenty of ideas and works in progress.

Fri Mar 04 the Moon conjoins Pluto in Capricorn. Get lost in your work, if need be, and feel good about it all. That night, Mercury squares Mars. Don’t rush to judgment about anything. Let your work settle into itself before thinking about changes or editing. Destroy nothing now. You can always burn it later.

Sat Mar 05 the Moon is in Capricorn when Mercury changes signs and enters Pisces. Thoughts get bigger, more vague and emotional. Write (or read) romances today, or at least things with happy endings. Spiritual projects are probably okay, too. At 8:05 am the Moon sextiles Mars and then goes void of course until entering Aquarius seventeen minutes later at 8:22 am. This may create a stormy beginning but your opinions should rapidly calm down and let you be more objective. That evening at 6:29 pm Mars changes signs, leaving Scorpio and entering Sagittarius. It’s fine to do a few more things for someone else, especially if it furthers everyone’s artistic endeavors. And let’s not overlook the Sun making a square with Saturn at 10:04 pm. If criticism has been harsh today or authority figures have been more visible than usual, now you know why. You can work with this. (continue reading…)

Heads Up!

The Writer’s Astrological Almanac

by Kathy Watts

January 18th-31st 2016

(times are all Pacific Standard Time, PST)

Mon Jan 18 the Moon is in Taurus all day. At 3:01 am Mars makes a trine with Neptune. There’s magic in this trine, and with Mars in Scorpio, it may not be gentle. It may be a good day to let a character’s emotions run wild, though. Heads Up.

Tue Jan 19 the Moon enters Gemini at 1:13 am. Heads Up for extra writerly and artistic self-indulgence and productivity. This will end early on Thursday, so jump right on it. It goes fast. It’s also the last day of the month that the Sun spends in Capricorn. Tomorrow the world will be bigger if not brighter, with wider perspective.

Wed Jan 20 the Moon is in Gemini when the Sun enters Aquarius at 7:27 am. Heads Up. If it’s been a work-crazed month so far, that might lighten up but the desire to work isn’t going to go away. Mercury retrograde is square Uranus at 10:26 am. This could be a Heads Up if you’re feeling mischievous.

Thu Jan 21 the Moon enters Cancer at 5:28 am. Treat yourself to a nice breakfast and keep working.

Fri Jan 22 the Moon is Cancer when at 1:59 am Mercury retrograde conjoins Pluto at 15 Cap. Alarming thoughts could try to grab hold of your imagination. Let them go. Mercury won’t be retrograde much longer and it’s moving slowly and powerfully through the sky. Heads Up. The Moon conjoins Mercury retrograde at 9:17 am. Your heart may speak more loudly than your head. The Moon then conjoins Pluto at 9:34 am. It’s an intense way to spend the morning, so maybe cut down on the coffee. By the way, the Moon is square Uranus at 11:32 am. Surprises may not be so pleasing now. It’s a sort of Heads Up day. (continue reading…)
