Welcome to Rebecca's Forecast!
I offer my interpretation of the planets' transits each month through our solar system as an insight to your life’s personal choices and changes.
I believe Astrology is a powerful tool for self-change through the understanding of life’s evolving cycles. It is a powerful and useful knowledge to be utilized as a guide but never as a replacement for our gift of free will, choice and personal self expression. Astrology has stood the test of time. Dating back to Mesopotamia, it is an art and a science. For those who believe no proof is necessary, for those who disbelieve no proof is enough.
My forecast for August 2017 is below.
