As we begin the week with the Sun in Jupiter, as well as Saturn, Venus, and Jupiter in retrograde. Here is an overview of today’s predictions by a variety of top astrologers.

Astrologer Patrick Arundell says: “This particular influence [has] very much to do with positivity and growth. And with both located as they are in Earth signs, a chance to take a more adventurous attitude to our resources.

“But with Jupiter in retrograde, and the general Covid environment, what we can do to convert this helpfully for us, is to make the most of what we have.”

Astrologer Arik Xander of Sivana Spirit says: “Even with three planets going retrograde, it has been a good news week in terms of COVID-19 in the US. Of course, we need to look at the challenges, but there is a difference between looking at what we need to face vs. being negative for the sake of avoiding the challenge altogether!

“Right now, Uranus continues its transit in Taurus, shaking up the economy and agriculture. But, what we can all become aware of is that the energy outside is very heavy and very negative.”

Astrologer Claire Comstock-Gay of The Cut looks at the week ahead and writes: “On Wednesday, the sun enters Gemini, the sign of curiosity and charm and quick thinking.

“This is a season to let your mind roam, restless and observant and sharp. Your energy might feel less steady and less linear, but more free and wild, more open to everything the world has to show you.”
