Summer 2018 Astrology Forecast

Updated: Jul 12, 2018

Saturns transit brings us to a decisive point. You question your goals and their progress. Confronting past failures and disappointments is necessary and so is extracting whatever positive lessons and experience can be gleaned from them.






Transit URANUS conjoined natal Uranus ♅ ☌ ♅

Jun 21 through Jul 24, 2018


Since you are past the age of eighty when this influence occurs, it signifies a period when you can and should have the freedom to pursue anything you wish. By this time you have learned much about life’s traditional patterns and coped with its many responsibilities. Now you can leave these things to others to carry on and free yourself to take the road less traveled, explore the unorthodox, and enjoy higher planes of thought and existence.



Transit SATURN conjoined natal Saturn ♄ ☌ ♄

Jun 21 through Jun 29, 2018


This period brings a well-defined influence that is nearly unanimous in its effect on those who experience it. It is a period in which your life has come to a decisive point. You question your goals and the progress you have or have not made. It would not be unusual for you to start thinking in terms of a certain finality, a sense of lost youth or failure to accomplish or experience certain things. Confronting past failures and disappointments is necessary and so is extracting whatever positive lessons and experience can be gleaned from them. Barring any dalliance with depression or discouragement on your part --an unnecessary indulgence which should be avoided at all cost-- you will begin to see a more structured and purposeful future ahead. This is likely to lead to a serious attempt to make changes in or terminate current relationships and situations that will not permit the future growth you envision for yourself. On the other hand, all current circumstances being satisfactory, this is a period to reaffirm your commitment to your present course and long-range goals.



Transit SATURN opposed natal Mercury ♄ ☍ ☿

Jun 21 through Jun 29, 2018


The potential of your current circumstances suggests you will encounter serious frustrations involved with education, communication, and travel or transportation. Your circulation, that is, your ability to move freely within your immediate environment, is likely to be hampered for one reason or another. Contacts and activities with siblings and neighbors may be restricted. Mechanical, design, and computer projects or the development of your skills in these areas may falter. Any type of mechanical or other equipment that you use on a daily basis is apt to need repair or replacement, especially if it is old or not been properly maintained. The pace of business transactions, especially sales, is slow. Under this influence, your ideas, thoughts, and manner of self-expression will tend to be on the sober side. Even if you do manage to inject humor or lightheartedness into the proceedings, it will be difficult to maintain. If you lacked organization, careful planning, and attention to detail in the past, it is likely to catch up with you now. What to do about this negative influence? Avoid anger and resentment since they are useless and will only make things worse. Approach everything with patience, and do not force issues or openly confront difficult situations that may be more easily resolved at another time.



Transit MARS conjoined natal Mars ♂ ☌ ♂

Jun 21 through Jul 13, 2018, exact on Jul 7


The extremely active, potentially chaotic, circumstances during this period can literally as well as figuratively give you a headache. Under this very energetic, sometimes overly aggressive, influence everyone is likely to be busier than usual, and that includes you. It will be difficult to find passive participants in almost any situation. A new two-year cycle of energy begins for you. A period suggesting that by choice or circumstances, you will initiate new directions and new ventures.



Transit URANUS square natal Venus ♅ □ ♀

Jun 21 through Sep 21, 2018, exact on Jul 27 & Aug 18


This period is likely to bring circumstances that unexpectedly disrupt or alter female friendships, romantic situations, social contacts, marriage or partnership. Joint ventures and other cooperative efforts may suddenly fall apart or be changed in some way. Though the potential of this period is disruption in the status of relationships and situations in the areas just mentioned, it does not necessarily signal an end to them. If relationships and common goals involved are solid enough to withstand the circumstances and challenges that threaten to disturb them, they may become even more enduring as a result of the struggle. Social events, diplomatic maneuvers, or artistic pursuits that you undertake at this time are sure to be plagued by unexpected developments, last minute changes, or any number of other chaotic circumstances that in turn, are likely to be caused by the actions or decisions of others over which you have no control. This is not a favorable time for beauty treatments or cosmetic surgery, since the results of such endeavors may not be what you anticipated. Under this influence you may encounter unusual social circumstances, be offered an unorthodox alliance, and surprised by the unpleasant or unhappy reactions of others.



Transit MARS opposed natal Venus ♂ ☍ ♀

Jul 29 through Aug 6, 2018, exact on Aug 2


Romance is not a likely or enjoyable prospect, nor for that matter are social activities or communications with co-workers, a partner, or other allies. This is not an auspicious time for marriage and other alliances or joint ventures-- and certainly not a period in which to initiate new ones. During this period everyone is apt to head in opposite directions with no thought of cooperation or willingness to compromise. Under this influence elegance and refined actions are overwhelmed or replaced by bad taste and aggressiveness. Avoid undergoing surgical procedures or beauty treatments to enhance your physical appearance. Do not begin or expect to make progress in redecorating projects or any activities that involve diplomacy, art, or music. If you are traveling, do not expect to encounter amiable company along the way. Your work and other physical efforts are best accomplished alone. Even if you could make more progress with the assistance of others, it may be a case of current circumstances that force you to engage in solitary actions. Energy is wasted on debate, negotiation, legal matters, and counseling. If the potentially negative influence of this period fails to appear or disrupt your routine, count yourself fortunate.



Transit JUPITER conjoined natal Jupiter ♃ ☌ ♃

Jun 21 through Aug 15, 2018, exact on Aug 4


Some type of personal growth and expansion is likely to occur during this period, but there is no certain way to predict what form it will take. If your particular circumstances allow for such a likelihood, it may mean bearing children, an endeavor which can be seen as a form of personal expansion. It may also mean successful efforts in other areas such as higher education and advanced training, or the growth of a commercial enterprise. Still other potentials for this period suggest you may climb another rung of the social ladder or gain a position of higher professional status. Unless negative factors destroy the otherwise fortunate potential of this period, you are meant to pursue some form of personal advancement with the confidence that you will succeed.



Transit MARS square natal Uranus ♂ □ ♅

Aug 2 through Aug 10, 2018, exact on Aug 6


Present circumstances may put you into such a tense or aggravated state as to cause you to do something you would not ordinarily do. Because this influence implies rash as well as unpredictable actions, caution is advised during this period. Keep in mind that not only are your actions unpredictable but also their consequences, that is, whatever you hope to gain by them is not likely to be what results. The performance of machinery and equipment, as well as that of the people who may work for or with you, is also unpredictable at this time. Expect to encounter some snags when you attempt to make changes in work schedules or introduce new methods.



Transit URANUS conjoined natal Uranus ♅ ☌ ♅

Aug 21 through Sep 21, 2018


Since you are past the age of eighty when this influence occurs, it signifies a period when you can and should have the freedom to pursue anything you wish. By this time you have learned much about life’s traditional patterns and coped with its many responsibilities. Now you can leave these things to others to carry on and free yourself to take the road less traveled, explore the unorthodox, and enjoy higher planes of thought and existence.



Transit JUPITER trine natal Neptune ♃ △ ♆

Aug 18 through Sep 3, 2018, exact on Aug 26


This is a tricky period in which it becomes necessary to focus on reality, even while successfully operating in an unreal environment. The magic of illusion and imagination, enhanced spirituality, or investigating the paranormal can be enjoyable, even fortunate diversions if they pose no serious threat to life, limb, or your bank account. There is potential here for you to experience the highest inspirations, as well as the kind of dumb luck that comes from just being in the right place at the right time for reasons you are not quite sure of. You have the ability to be a master of disguise these days, however or for whatever reasons you choose to employ it.



Transit NEPTUNE trine natal Jupiter ♆ △ ♃

Sep 1 through Sep 21, 2018


This long-term influence is generally favorable though other influences and circumstances will occur from time to time that can either support or negate its total impact. The potential targets include your economic prospects, intellectual horizons, political ambitions, spiritual awareness, and cultural pursuits. If you have any sort of personal flare for the dramatic, it will no doubt be accentuated. However, combining unreality and illusion with exaggeration and extravagance, which is what happens during this period, is not always an attractive or successful way to get things done. While it may be successful from one point of view and in some situations, it may later be the source of embarrassment or perhaps ultimately turn away those you may have initially impressed. Use the beneficial potential of this influence wisely by keeping modesty and prudence in mind while applying an inspirational and imaginative approach. This influence can breed overenthusiasm to the point of turning idealism into fanaticism. If you can manage to sidestep the overblown tendencies of this period, you will be able to enhance your personal status and growth, especially if you let yourself be inspired by the circumstances surrounding you. As optimism increases, your chance of success increases --feeling that you will be successful you may go out and make your own luck.



Transit JUPITER sextile natal Pluto ♃ ⚹ 

Sep 17 through Sep 21, 2018


Current circumstances may offer opportunity to increase your personal power and control, or at the very least, a chance to understand how this might be accomplished. This can be a good time to analyze your personal talent and skills and find out how they may be developed and used more effectively.



Transit MARS square natal Uranus ♂ □ ♅

Sep 13 through Sep 21, 2018, exact on Sep 17
