Elizabeth Rose is a highly regarded American occultist, psychic and healer residing in Sacramento. She began formal study of the occult in her twenties as a regular visitor to a local curiosity shop. She befriended a local Wiccan priestess who taught her astrology, magic and tarot. This led to her formal initiation into the Craft in 1988. She continued her studies by joining the Clairvoyant training program at Psychic Horizons, graduating as a reverend in 1993. With a hunger for art and history she enrolled at SFSU in the theater program where her training exposed her to the ancient connections between shamanism and theater. Majoring in Drama with an emphasis in World Religions, she studied the history of Greek and European theater as well as Women's Studies. She graduated with a BA in Drama & Performance in 1997. Since then she has expanded her occult knowledge through studies of Irish folklore, Chinese astrology, herbal healing and Feng Shui. She is an adept healer and psychic, and continues her practice of tarot readings, psychic healings and marriage ceremonies while studying Ceremonial Magick and Qabalah with the Temple of the Silver Star.
“Arriving in Egypt, Pythagoras tried to gain entry into the Mystery Schools of that country. He applied again and again, but he was told that unless he goes through a particular training of fasting and breathing, he cannot be allowed to enter the school. Pythagoras is reported to have said, ” I have come for knowledge, not any sort of discipline.”
But the school authorities said,” we cannot give you knowledge unless you are different. And really, we are not interested in knowledge at all, we are interested in actual experience. No knowledge is knowledge unless it is lived and experienced. So you will have to go on a 40 day fast, continuously breathing in a certain manner, with a certain awareness on certain points.” After 40 days of fasting and breathing, aware, attentive, he was allowed to enter the school at Diospolis.
It is said that Pythagoras said, ”You are not allowing Pythagoras in. I am a different man, I am reborn. You were right and I was wrong, because then my whole standpoint was intellectual. Through this purification, my center of being has changed. Before this training I could only understand through the intellect, through the head. Now I can feel. Now truth is not a concept to me, but a life.”

We had a major shift this weekend, did you feel it? The North Node conjunct the New Moon on Saturday gave us a glimpse of the future, and what will be developing over the next six months. It’s interesting to notice any signs or messages from the Universe during an eclipse; what happened in your life?
Astrologically, the Sun and Moon were conjunct with the North Node (future) bringing us a powerful New Moon Eclipse in Cancer. Along with this we had the Summer Solstice, which is the high point of light for the whole year. From now on the days will gradually get shorter.
In the background we have many retrograde planets – Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Pluto, and Jupiter are all retrograde, with Neptune turning retrograde on Monday at 9:30pm. This means we are reassessing every corner of our lives this Summer. We are going over ground we’ve already covered to see if our chosen path still works for us. It’s a time of contemplation and soul searching.
Venus will be resurrecting herself on Thursday as the Morning Star. She goes through her retrograde cycle every 1.6 years, and this week she is reemerging as a glorious, new queen. A few weeks ago she turned retrograde, descended in the twilight as the evening star, became purified in the fires of the Sun, traveled through the underworld, and now rises as a new morning star. It’s a beautiful cycle of rebirth, and it has been mirrored in our society by the emergence of a new civil rights movement.
Monday, June 22nd: Moon in Cancer, Neptune Retrograde in Pisces. The lovely new moon in Cancer continues today and reaches greater strength. People might be sensitive right now, so be kind and gentle towards others. Intuitive, creative work and music are highlighted today.
Tuesday, June 23rd: Moon in Leo. Let the child in you come out and play! You can receive concessions from authority today, or you may find yourself leading others. Great day to let yourself stand out and shine!
Wednesday, June 24th: Moon void-of-course in Leo ALL DAY, Venus Direct at 11:48pm. Day of continuity from yesterday’s developments. A void Moon always means to lay low and follow well-laid plans. Stay away from risks or negotiation, instead stabilize what’s in progress.
Thursday, June 25th: Moon in Virgo. Our focus turns towards health, habits and being of service to others. Spend the day getting organized; detailed work is easy now. As for Venus, she begins her ascent back from the underworld today, which is often the hardest part of the journey. Be gentle with yourself today.
Friday, June 26th: Moon in Virgo. Organize the house, have a work out and a salad.
Saturday, June 27th: Moon in Libra, Mars into Aries. We will be full of energy and ambition today, but with the moon in Libra everything will be a team effort. Partnerships are highlighted.
We stand at the threshold of a New Moon in Cancer, seeded by a solar eclipse. Today, Saturday, we step through a powerful portal, bringing us to the gradual decline of light, and the second half of 2020.
The Sun and Moon, along with Mercury retrograde, are all in the sign of Cancer. This sign is about nostalgia, our childhoods, and the Mother. The energy of this weekend brings a processing through memories, feelings, past choices, and old ideas. We are ready to become vulnerable, let our feelings show, and release the past.
Since the rare conjunction on January 12th of Saturn and Pluto, we have been living through a salad spinner of intensity; the first worldwide pandemic of our lifetimes, over 100,000 deaths, widespread unemployment, the crash of the markets… but importantly, the demand that ALL people are equal and deserve respect, no matter where they come from or the color of their skin. It’s been intense living through the Spring of 2020, but I remain hopeful that the underlying, toxic energy of the USA will be purged and healed once and for all.
When the planet Pluto becomes activated, we see a great purge of toxic energy. The USA is a year or two away from it’s exact Pluto return. The last time this occurred was 1776 – the birth of this country. We are in the midst of significant change, especially how we interact with authority (Capricorn). We’re being asked to question traditional authority figures and to become our own authorities. Capricorn represents the father, and right now the “father” is being questioned.
The conjunction between Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn brings the tearing down of old structures and the reordering of society. We are seeing this in spades. Personally, we are being asked to “level up” and get serious in whatever corner of our chart this point (24 Capricorn) appears in. This weekend in particular heralds our birth into a new time, one that has to build upon what we’ve been tearing down since the start of 2020.
CURRENTLY: Sun at 25 Gemini Mercury at 15 Cancer, going RETROGRADE (weak) Venus RETROGRADE at 7 Gemini (neutral) Mars at 21 Pisces (weak) Jupiter RETROGRADE at 25 Capricorn (fall, very weak) Saturn RETROGRADE at 1 Aquarius (rulership) Pluto RETROGRADE at 24 Capricorn Neptune at 20 Pisces (rulership, strong) North Node at 29 Gemini
We’re in the dark of the Moon this week, so don’t start anything just rest. We are however, moving towards some major events on Saturday, June 20th. The Sun will move into Cancer heralding the Summer Solstice! It’s the time of longest days and greatest light. The yearly astrological cycle reaches a climax this week. Whatever seed you planted at the Spring Equinox should begin to show itself.
Along with the Summer Solstice this Saturday, we have a Full Moon ECLIPSE at 0 degrees Cancer! June is the month of eclipses, and this energy is making us change. We are rebirthing ourselves, our lives, and hopefully our society, into a world that supports and values everyone. The events of June will continue to unfold over the next six months.
Mars conjunct Neptune AND the Moon over the weekend is still in effect. It’s not the happiest place for Mars, and men in particular might be struggling. Still, our energy is driven towards the collective unconscious which is currently demanding real change in the face of racial disparity. We are one people, and this needs to be acknowledged and assimilated deeply in a new way. The grief and anger is palpable, and my heart goes out to all the folks suffering right now.
Neptune is a big part of the current cultural shifts. This planet allows us to easily access intuition, mysticism, healing, Magick, art and music as part of expressing ourselves. With the North Node (destiny) in Gemini (community), we can bring healing towards our local groups and society – which I hope will happen ❤
Also, the planet Venus is part of the picture this week. The planet of Love, beauty and women is currently going through her retrograde cycle, which is commonly seen as her descent through the underworld. Venus is still near (but moving away) from her conjunction with the Sun a couple weeks ago, so we cannot see her in the skies. She is invisible to the human eye and traveling through the underworld, about to be reborn as the Morning Star on June 25th. Anything that has been denied in our lives and society is visible now and demanding acknowledgement, which can be seen in the racial injustice and new protest movement encircling the globe.
Monday, June 15th: Moon in Aries. Good day to start things, but don’t be headstrong. Moon will be squaring Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn (the Covid point), so stay out of social complications and arguments with other people.
Tuesday, June 16th: Moon in Taurus. Refocus on your needs and home life. Walk in nature, work in the garden and cook something scrumptious. Beware of overspending with online shopping.
Wednesday, June 17th: Moon in Taurus, Mercury retrograde at 15 Cancer. Day of continuity from yesterday’s developments, but with Mercury stationing retrograde, be careful around communication, negotiation and signing anything important. Taurus moon means to be cautious, so stay away from risks or negotiation. Stabilize what is already in motion.
Thursday, June 18th: Moon into Gemini at 2pm Pacific, Mercury Retrograde at 15 Cancer. Creative day focused on self-nurturing.
Friday, June 19th: Moon in Gemini. Probably the best day for reaching an understanding with others. Good date night, but wear a mask 🙂 We are in the realm of the New Moon, so contemplate what you’d like to see happen in your life over the next several months.
Saturday, June 20th: SUMMER SOLSTICE. New Moon ECLIPSE at 0 Cancer at 11:41pm. Moon in Gemini, Sun into Cancer. Today is the highpoint of the Sun, the time of greatest light and longest days. We will be full of energy and ambition today, however, Mars conjunct Neptune is exact which can confuse our efforts. Get yourself grounded and centered before undertaking anything. Bring some compassion into your day.
Sunday, June 21st: New Moon ECLIPSE in Cancer continues… be kind to yourself and others.
CURRENTLY: Sun at 18 Gemini Mercury at 11 Cancer (weak) Venus RETROGRADE at 11 Gemini (neutral) Mars at 17 Pisces (weak) Jupiter RETROGRADE at 26 Capricorn (fall, very weak) Saturn RETROGRADE at 1 Aquarius (rulership) Pluto RETROGRADE at 24 Capricorn Neptune at 20 Pisces (rulership, strong) North Node at 29 Gemini
Last Thursday’s Full Moon ECLIPSE in Sagittarius will continue unfolding this week, AND over the next six months. We are rebirthing ourselves, our lives, and hopefully our society, into a world that supports and values everyone. On a personal level, YOU are unique, and you have a precious, singular contribution to make to the world. Just be careful out there folks, we’re still in a pandemic.
The Sun square Mars from last Saturday is still effecting us for a couple of weeks. Don’t over-focus on what other people are doing, instead put energy into YOUR goals. Controlling other people, or criticizing their reactions to the state of the world, is a waste of time. Respect the paths of other people, even if they doesn’t make sense to you. The Sun (Soul and vision) squaring Mars (action and drive) can make us restless and cranky with perceived road blocks. There’s steps each of us need to take in order to move forward right now – usually involving Saturn (discipline and hard work).
Mars is activating and energizing the sign of Pisces right now – the sign of our collective unconscious. Venus is going through her retrograde cycle, which is commonly seen as her descent through the underworld. She will be reborn soon as the Morning Star. Issues, both personal and collective, that have been repressed and denied are coming up for air now and demanding to be acknowledged.
Speaking of squares, there’s another major one happening all year: Pluto at 24 Capricorn square ERIS at 24 Aries. This aspect is rare, chaotic, and will be with us for the whole year! These two planets are the furthest away from the Sun in our solar system, and represent regeneration. Pluto brings evolution through the healing of repressed, toxic energy, and Eris brings change through discord, for the forgotten and oppressed sides of our culture. I hope things will settle down in our country, but I doubt it with this aspect in play. The best way to utilize these energies, is to make sure your side of the street is clean, and your life is organized. Have you been projecting your problems onto others? Do you owe anyone an apology?
Monday, June 8th: Moon void-of-course all day, then into Aquarius at 5:54pm Pacific. Follow routines and planned activities. Moon will be contacting Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn (the Covid point), so stay out of social complications and arguments with other people.
Tuesday, June 9th: Moon in Aquarius. Let the genius in you come out and play! People will be friendly but unemotional, so work towards forward progress. Look for positive developments in society today, since Aquarius is the sign of humanity.
Wednesday, June 10th: Moon void-of-course in Aquarius ALL DAY. Day of continuity from yesterday’s developments. A void Moon always means to lay low and follow well-laid plans. Stay away from risks or negotiation, instead stabilize what’s in progress.
Thursday, June 11th: Moon in Pisces. Creative and peaceful day. Listen to music. Sun (Soul and vision) square Neptune (dreams) is exact in the early morning. There’s some action we need to take to see the path ahead. Neptune aspects often bring fogginess and a feeling of being lost. Don’t be discouraged by this, just be creative and focus on self care.
Friday, June 12th: Moon in Pisces. Keep listening to music and focusing on creativity.
Saturday, June 13th: Moon void, then into Aries at 2:03pm Pacific. We will be full of energy and ambition today, however, Mars conjunct Neptune is exact which can confuse our efforts. Get yourself grounded and centered before undertaking anything. Bring some compassion into your day.
CURRENTLY: Sun at 11 Gemini Mercury at 5 Cancer (weak) Venus RETROGRADE at 14 Gemini (neutral) Mars at 13 Pisces (weak) Jupiter RETROGRADE at 26 Capricorn (fall, very weak) Saturn RETROGRADE at 1 Aquarius (rulership) Pluto RETROGRADE at 24 Capricorn Neptune at 20 Pisces (rulership, strong) update your dream. North Node at 29 Gemini
We are leading up to a Full Moon ECLIPSE in Sagittarius this week; occurring this Friday at 12:12pm Pacific. Last week, there was a sextile between the planet Mars (battles, anger, war) and Uranus (sudden events, disruption), which contributed to the upheaval we saw in America’s cities the past several days. The tragic events of last week, the murder of George Floyd, has sparked a huge catalyst for widespread, deep change in our culture. My fervent prayer is that we will see some REAL change from this event, that this will be a turning point in our society.
Pluto at 24 Capricorn squares ERIS at 24 Aries. This aspect is rare, chaotic, and will be with us for the whole year! These two planets are the furthest away from the Sun in our solar system, and represent regeneration. Pluto brings evolution through the healing of repressed, toxic energy, and Eris brings change through discord, anarchy, and revolution for the forgotten and oppressed sides of our culture. It’s a wild aspect between these two cataclysmic powerhouses. I hope things will settle down in our country, but I doubt it with this aspect in play. The best way to utilize these energies, is to make sure your side of the street is clean, and your life is organized. Have you been projecting your problems onto others? Do you owe anyone an apology?
If you want a personal reading on how the Full Moon effects you this week, you can book a reading with me here.
Monday, June 1st: Moon in Libra. Focus on bringing our lives back into balance. If there’s a corner of your life you’ve been neglecting, today is the day to give it attention. Negotiation and communication are easy today. Walk the middle road.
Tuesday, June 2nd: Moon in Scorpio. Mars square Venus. Romantic day, but men might be distracted or withdrawn. Give men space if they need it, but women will need time to air out feelings. Exercise and creativity get a boost.
Wednesday, June 3rd: Moon in Scorpio. Day of healing and rebirth. We go deep, connect with our passions and use them to heal our relationships. Avoid confrontation and social complication. Not a good day to protest… just fyi. Stay home.
Thursday, June 4th: Moon in Sagittarius. Sun conjunct Venus in Gemini. Beautiful, harmonious aspect today. Excellent for creating art, beauty and romance. Life vision is easy to access today. Enjoy the vibes and embrace peace.
Friday, June 5th: Full Moon Eclipse at 15 Sagittarius at 12:12pm Pacific. What’s your truth? Clear the air, but avoid taking risks. Adventure and outdoor activities are enhanced, so go for a hike. Setting goals is highly recommended. Mercury sextile Uranus on Friday at 4am Pacific: desire for freedom and independence. This aspect brings a flood of ideas and inspiration. Write it all down!
Saturday, June 6th: Moon in Capricorn. Our attention returns to our responsibilities. Tackle business today as best you can, and focus on family. Mars conjunct Neptune begins, and continues for a couple of weeks. Mars wants to charge forward like a soldier, but Pisces and Neptune bring a foggy path. It’s easy to put our energy in the wrong direction and end up confused and lost. Covid19 cases will likely rise in June as well. Still a good idea to stay indoors when possible.
CURRENTLY: Sun at 4 Gemini Mercury at 23 Gemini (rulership! Do Mercurial Magick now) Venus RETROGRADE at 18 Gemini (neutral) Mars at 7 Pisces (not great) Jupiter RETROGRADE at 27 Capricorn (fall, very weak) Saturn RETROGRADE at 1 Aquarius (rulership) Pluto RETROGRADE at 24 Capricorn Neptune at 20 Pisces (rulership, strong) update your dream. North Node at 29 Gemini
The Sun is now in Gemini (The Twins), along with most of the inner planets AND the North Node (destiny). Gemini = ADAPTABILITY. How are you adapting to our new paradigm? Try a different point of view. We are focused like a laser on this area of our charts. If you want a personal reading on how this effects you over the next month, you can book a reading with me here.
The last month has been INTENSE with the Taurus/Scorpio axis in play. Lots of folks being stubborn and territorial. The mood will be lighter through June, however Gemini brings a strong desire to socialize, and you can see it with the country opening back up. Unfortunately, the background of the skies (and our society) is still ruled by Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter in Capricorn, which spawned the pandemic. This year is a time of major transformation and rebirth in our lives and culture. Continue to practice mindfulness, and remember, behind every polarity (Gemini) there is unity and the One. We are all ONE (Neptune).
Monday, May 25th: Moon in Cancer. It’s good to be a homebody today, although you might be tired of it 🙂 Do things to nurture yourself so you have a strong foundation for the week ahead.
Tuesday, May 26th: Moon in Cancer. People can be sensitive during this time, so try and be gentle with others. We get a glimpse of the future as Mercury passes over the North Node in Gemini.
Wednesday, May 27th: Moon in Leo. Roar like a lion. Today everyone wants a attention, so give some to yourself. Excellent creative day for music or art. Seek concessions from authority.
Thursday, May 28th: Moon void of course in Leo, and Mercury into Cancer. Our focus on sociability will shift back to the security of home. No big decisions today. Just follow your heart and continue your creative projects. Do not enter into negotiations and try not to sign anything.
Friday, May 29th: Moon in Virgo. Work on the house and organize your life. I often find myself doing that when the Moon is in Virgo without knowing it! Deep cleaning.
Saturday, May 30th: Moon in Virgo. Organize more and get the chores done. Make a healthy meal. Anything requiring attention to detail is highlighted.
CURRENTLY: Sun at 27 Taurus Mercury at 11 Gemini (rulership! Do Mercurial Magick now) Venus RETROGRADE at 21 Gemini (neutral) Mars at 3 Pisces (not great) Jupiter RETROGRADE at 27 Capricorn (fall, very weak) Saturn RETROGRADE at 1 Aquarius (rulership) Pluto RETROGRADE at 24 Capricorn Neptune at 20 Pisces (rulership, strong) North Node at 29 Gemini
The Sun moves into Gemini (The Twins) this Wednesday in the early morning! Expect many more Zoom calls and online classes from people, since Gemini is the sign of communication and socializing. Mercury is fast in the skies right now, leading the Sun through it’s natural home of Gemini. We’re entering a phase of focusing the Mind and understanding what our thinking brings to our lives. Become present and mindful of your thoughts, because that is how you are creating your life experience. It’s hard to remain positive these days in the midst of so much challenge, but practicing mindfulness and being present can really help. Are you getting eight solid hours of sleep every night? Eating well and exercising? Reaching out to friends?
Many powerful planets are stationing (standing still), and moving into backwards motion (retrograde) right now. Two of them, Pluto and Saturn, spawned the pandemic, with their rare conjunction at 24 Capricorn in January. With these retrogrades, we will spend the summer going over ground we’ve already covered. On a personal level, this means going inwards to rediscover your true nature and purpose. Unfortunately, the economy might still be sluggish, so prepare for that possibility. For the next few months it’s about each of us reimagining and restructuring our lives. It’s good to focus on researching new possibilities for yourself right now.
Monday, May 18th: Moon in Aries. Starting the week off with lots of force and energy. Look out for head strong behavior. Don’t start something you can’t finish.
Tuesday, May 19th: Moon in Aries slowing down and entering Taurus at 7:10pm Pacific.
Wednesday, May 20th: Moon in Taurus. Sun enters Gemini in the early morning! We might all feel lighter now. It’s easy to get into the minutiae of things today, so aim for simplicity in your dealings with others. Negotiations, writing, mathematics, computer work are all highlighted today and this week! We learn from others. Share with your social circle and engage in fun activities. Great for online games too.
Thursday, May 21st: Moon in Taurus. Walk in nature, work in the garden and cook something scrumptious. Beware of overspending with online shopping.
Friday, May 22nd: New Moon in Gemini at 10:38am Pacific. This New Moon is exactly trine with Saturn in Aquarius, which accentuates the airiness of socializing and communication. However with Saturn things could have a serious note.
Saturday, May 23rd: Moon in Gemini. New Moon energy still prevalent. Socialize as best you can and let your ideas and creativity flow! Mercury conjuncts Venus which is a lovely aspect for meaningful conversations.
CURRENTLY: Sun at 20 Taurus Mercury at 0 Gemini (rulership! Do Mercurial Magick now) Venus at 21 Gemini (neutral) Mars at 28 Aquarius (neutral) Jupiter at 27 Capricorn (fall, very weak) Saturn RETROGRADE at 1 Aquarius (rulership) Pluto RETROGRADE at 24 Capricorn Neptune at 20 Pisces (rulership, strong) North Node at 29 Gemini
This week sees the change from the earthy sign of Taurus, to the airy sign of Gemini. Our focus changes from the Spring flowers, green hillsides and self sufficiency of Taurus, to the chattiness of the Gemini mind. Mercury is fast in the skies right now, and entering it’s natural home of Gemini (rulership) today!
Also, two of the key planets involved at the “Covid point” of 24 Capricorn are going retrograde or backwards this week. This is the corner of the sky where the Saturn-Pluto conjunction happened on January 12th that spawned the huge transformations taking place on the planet right now. We will spend the next several months going over ground we’ve already covered, so be prepared for that spiritual processing. I think we could have a resurgence of virus cases over the summer, so take care of yourself!
Monday, May 11th: Moon in Capricorn connecting with Pluto and Jupiter at 24 Capricorn (the Covid 19 point). When the Moon arrives there each month, our emotions can come up strongly in the form of great fear and sadness. We open up and process how these changes are effecting our lives. Nurture yourself today and ride the waves of feelings. Positive change can be yours if you put in the hard work. Mercury into Gemini.
Tuesday, May 12: Moon in Aquarius. Mercury trines Moon AND Saturn today = serious and productive conversations. Also, Venus retrograde in Gemini near midnight. Venus will be twirling around in Gemini – backwards and then forwards – until August 7th. Look back to 2012 to see how this could effect you, your relationships and your money. Gemini is cerebral, so it will be a chatty summer, especially over the internet. Issues around partnerships of all kinds could arise, both positive and negative.
Wednesday, May 13th: Moon in Aquarius. Mars entered Pisces in the middle of the night, which adds to the confusion. We need to connect with our spiritual side and be a channel for Divine Will. What do you need to surrender to? What will you sacrifice to reach your highest goals?
Thursday, May 14th: Moon void-of-course all day, then entering Pisces conjuncting Mars in Pisces. Take a deep dive into your Soul. What do you need to do differently in order to connect with your true purpose? What is your evolutionary intention? Also Jupiter retrograde in Capricorn today.
Friday, May 15th: Moon in Pisces. Today is a respite from all of the crazy changes! Take time to enjoy life and focus on your blessings.
Saturday, May 16th – Moon in Aries. Black Moon Lilith conjunct Chiron in Aries, and squaring the “Covid point”. We want our power back from this loss of control we’re all feeling. The only way to really do this, is to withdraw and get quiet – meditate and contemplate your Soul’s desire for this lifetime.
Sunday, May 17th – Moon in Aries squaring 24 Pluto (Covid point). Pluto presides over this year, bringing endings, death, deep transformation and catharsis. With Aries (the Self) involved, we ask ourselves “who am I now? Who am I without the job? The money I’m used to? My relationship? Without the future I had planned??” The answers will come, and will lead each of us to a more deeply satisfying life. I really mean that! The first step is practicing mindfulness, and learning how to listen to your inner voice.
