Full Moon Eclipse in Leo


Full Moon in Leo: Wed. January 31st at 5:27am Pacific.

Since this is also an eclipse, and eclipse’s give us a glimpse of the future, watch for sign posts the next few days that show you where you are headed.

Something will “ripen” or come to fruition that started in August last year. A seed was planted in a corner of your life, and has been growing in silence the last several months. It is about to come to full bloom, and will usher in a new direction for each of us.

Leo has to do with being visible, leadership, shining your gifts and talents, setting an example for others, inspiring people, standing out from the crowd, specialization, childlike wonder, healing and opportunities. It’s the only zodiac sign actually ruled by the Sun, and the Sun is the largest light in our solar system. It’s the star that we revolve around, and without it there is no life.

So what are your gifts? What were you put here to do and where are you in the process of expressing it fully? Are you shining your light and being visible? Expressing yourself in the service of others is the lesson of Leo and Aquarius. If you’re struggling or experiencing emotional pain, the best thing to do is help someone else out. You will feel better, I promise!

Here’s how this eclipse will effect each of us. Go here to figure out your rising sign, or contact me for a reading!


Aries Rising: The Full Moon lights up your House of Creativity and Children. What do you want to leave behind someday? What’s your contribution to the world? If you’re an artist, or creative person, expect a breakthrough this week in how you express yourself – that can also mean children.

Taurus Rising: Eclipse in your psyche and home. The 4th House rules your living situation, your Mom, and your deepest psychological roots. Something in one of these areas has been “growing” in you since August 2017; expect illumination or breakthrough in this area that will point to your future.

Gemini Rising: Illumination in how you communicate and share the stuff you know. Do you mentor others? Validate your experience and knowledge and write something for the public that leads to greater understanding. Siblings could be a theme as well.

Cancer Rising: The Full Moon shines on your values and money! A breakthrough will occur with regards to what is most important to you. There’s a new clarity with security and resources. Something comes to fruition involving income, material stability and what you value.

Leo Rising: This eclipse shines directly on YOU and how you approach your world. It shows the way forward and illuminates the best ways to focus your energy – between now and August 2018. This Full Moon wants you to ask yourself – who are you right now? Take stock of your life and how you want to proceed.

Virgo Rising: Some new clarity is here that helps you connect with your personal psychology, how you self sabotage and your path to spirituality. It’s a breakthrough in self awareness. This week is a time of soul searching and communing with the god of your heart.

Scorpio Rising: Breakthrough about your career, your place in the world, and the role you want to be known for. Responsibilities and commitments could be a theme as well. You’re at a crossroads.

Sagittarius Rising: Breakthrough about what you believe in, the philosophy or ethics that guide your life, and even your education. Publishing, legal matters, foreign travel, and long distance journeys could be a theme as well.

Capricorn Rising: A breakthrough regarding Other People’s Money and/or Sex. This can mean credit, real estate or investment. Do your taxes this week! Wealth, debt, benefits, and estate planning – all the stuff Capricorns love. Partnership or sex issues may also be highlighted.

Aquarius Rising: A breakthrough regarding a relationship, partnership, or connection. Similarly, a partner or mate may have a major event in his or her life. You’re at a crossroads.

Pisces Rising: There’s a breakthrough about your everyday life, your habits and how you make money day to day. from how you schedule your daily to the work you do and the projects you’re involved in. Health, wellness, duties, and even your colleagues could be themes as well.

Uranus is our capacity to experience “The Revolution,” freedom to do things our own way, exhibiting our individual expression or even “Going Rogue” as we blast towards a future collective vision. Uranus inspires individual inclination to “Let me be ME” and connect to an ocean of humanity doing the same.

excerpt by Heather Roan Robbins—Visit our Astology Connection page for the complete daily predictions for the week and an overview of the Year for the current SunSign.
In 2018 we need to garden our perception and intuition like they’re our last hope for food. The most prominent aspect the year ahead is a trine between expansive Jupiter and intuitive Neptune (exact 5/26, 8/19, felt through September). Neptune stimulates the realm where our imagination, delusion, our hopes and fears, insight and lies, spirituality and intuition magnify and mingle, but it does not help us differentiate between them. To safely develop our intuition, we need to learn the difference between our desires or anxieties, and our true perceptions. We’ll need all our senses to guide us this year so that we can vision a better future and make it so, instead of feeling swamped with Neptune’s shadow of lighting or the illusion of wishful thinking.
Listen to the deeper call underneath the proliferating illusions of hopes and fear, beneath a Neptunian longing to escape, to feel what is real, to feel our interconnection, and then act decisively and pragmatically to benefit all our relations. 
Water is life. Neptune refers pragmatically to water, and water rights will stay problematic, a symbol for that pool of intuition in which swim. Tend to the waters; water rights, water quality, and we symbolically tend to the health of both the earth, and of our spirit. 
We will need to fill the wells of our spirit this year, or we can crave escape from a grim ordinary reality as Saturn in Capricorn approaches Pluto (conjunct in 2019) and old patriarchal authority structures flex their muscles. Between now and 2024, Pluto traverses the path it took right before the American Revolution, . . . 
. . . Let’s use this Capricorn lineup to organize, strengthen, and structure our work. 
Uranus enters earthy Taurus on May 15, . . . Uranus will catalyze change to our approach to material resources over the next eight years, but may do so by creating a real challenge first. The trick will be not to waste energy in petty power dynamics with one another, but instead keep our eye on the prize and scale one mountain at a time .. . .

Saturn in Capricorn

cap1New Moon in Capricorn: 6:17pm Pacific on Tuesday, January 16th, 2018.

This is one of the most productive weeks of the last few years. Anyone feeling super focused, efficient and less tolerant of immaturity since December? That’s when Saturn returned home to the craggy mountainsides of Capricorn. It hasn’t been home in 30 years. What was going on in your life 30 years ago?

The skies are heavily weighted towards Capricorn these days. There are FIVE planets picking their way through Capricorn right now – six if you count Lilith and I ALWAYS count Lilith <3.

But the main event happens this Tuesday with the New Moon in Capricorn. We will experience a rebirth in our determination, ambition and grit – so decide which direction you want to point yourself 🙂

You are likely to feel highly productive, serious and functional. At the same time feeling intolerant of things you used to put up with – like bad relationship dynamics and situations where your contribution and authority were dismissed. Your denial of facts and reality has been blown away and you take yourself more seriously nowadays… down to your bones. The structure of your life will go through a giant overhaul in the next couple of years, and it will be for the better.

Rare Aspects

The Path, by Reginald W. Machell

“The Path” by Reginald W. Machell


There’s a rare and powerful aspect happening tonight that will impact the week ahead. The Sun, Venus and Pluto arrive at the same degree of 19 Capricorn. This could be a cathartic event for each of us, depending on where the conjunction falls in your natal chart and the aspects it makes with other planets.

The Sun is your soul’s signature and vision in this lifetime, and brings huge focus and importance to where it falls in your chart AND to where it transits. It’s the giant star that our solar system depends on – the greatest light of all. In conjunction with Venus, it stirs the passions of love and art. Although Venus isn’t completely “happy” in the sign of the goat, the Sun’s presence brings warmth, healing and abundance to relationships or careers that have become stale or stuck. Venus is love and money, and the Sun is fire and healing. ❤

But across the solar system, far out in the hinterlands, sits Pluto. Despite being millions of light years away, it lines up perfectly with the Sun and Venus creating a huge conjunction across our personal star path. Pluto is a dark planet (yes it’s a planet dammit), and symbolizes deep transformation, catharsis, toxic emotions, unhealthy patterns and buried treasure. Pluto (with Venus) brings up our deepest, hidden blocks so we can sacrifice them in the fire of the Sun. We dig through the disappointments of last year and clear them, so we can unearth the real gold buried deep within. What a wonderful to start the year and set the energy of 2018.

From Austin Coppock:

“The other significant configuration which occurs during this span of days is the conjunction of Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio. This is a fierce and triumphant conjunction, the proper mindset of conquerors and the seed of great victories. It brings optimism and relentlessness, and while it shines you will have the capacity to envision victories you are normally too modest to dream.

Take the regalia of the conqueror from Mars and Jupiter, and the clarified passion of the Venus-Sun conjunction, for they are exactly what you need to build the year before you. Do not rush to commit to half-ass, guilty resolutions. Clarify your passion and stoke your courage, for they are exactly what you will need to build the year you desire.
Give the skies time to offer you these boons. Spend the days of this decan receiving these empowerments and constructing your blueprint. Do not start building before the design is complete- give yourself at least until the New Moon later in the month to break ground. 2018 will not be kind to hastily laid plans. It will test even good ones, but has rewards of satisfaction and accomplishment waiting for those who can bring together passion, courage and patience.”

Happy New Year!


Full Moon in Cancer: 6:24pm Pacific.

Uranus Direct in Aries: 6:13pm, January 2nd.

Happy New Year! You can stay home, recuperate, and watch movies today, but Uranus is stationing above us about to turn forward (Direct) in Aries. Expect revelations, sudden changes, insight and awakening.

The influence of the Full Moon and Uranus creates a turning point for many of us at the beginning of 2018. We will have more support for sticking to our resolutions.


Winter Solstice 2017

Osman Taner Küçükgenç

“Lucid Dream” by Osman Taner Küçükgenç

Saturn into Capricorn: Tuesday, Dec. 19 at 7:49pm Pacific.
Sun into Capricorn: Thursday, Dec. 21 at 7:28am Pacific.
Mercury Direct in Sagittarius: Friday, Dec. 22 at 5:51pm.
Venus into Capricorn: Sunday, Dec. 24th at 9:26pm

Happy Winter Solstice!! Tonight is the longest night of the year. Tomorrow the Sun is reborn and the days start to grow longer. It’s a good night to clarify priorities for next year, feast with friends and jump over bonfires.

Saturn moving into Capricorn on Tuesday is the big news. We have wrapped up two years of defining, committing to and crystalizing our truth and philosophy in the sign of Sagittarius. I personally began a new path of deep, spiritual study, but this can manifest in your life differently. What’s been going on with the foundation of your life over the last couple of years?

Now Saturn moves into Capricorn, which is the sign of it’s rulership. This means the energies of the planet are free to fully express themselves and manifest their core qualities. Saturn is energetically heavy; it rules responsibility, maturity, your boss, foundation, structure, teeth and bone, wisdom, reality, time, your dad, achievement, your knees, career… and of course marijuana. Wherever you have Capricorn in your chart is the House where you will feel the strongest effects. If you’d like to schedule a 15 minute phone reading with me, you can do that here.

Meanwhile, here’s what Austin Coppock wrote earlier this week:

“Thus Saturn’s entrance into Capricorn in December of 2017 begins a period which is, quite literally, a gamechanger. The changes which take place during the next 5 years are naturally divided into two steps — the Capricorn portion coincides with the destruction of the old rules, the Aquarius portion with the design of the new.

Saturn and Capricorn
Before going further into the various themes which Saturn’s time in Capricorn entails, it behooves us to consider the nature of both Capricorn and Saturn.

Saturn is the slowest and furthest planet visible to the naked eye. It takes approximately 29.5 years to do one circuit of the zodiac. Just as Saturn is the limit of the visible solar system, Saturn is concerned with boundaries and borders. A wall both encloses and excludes, separating one space from another and limiting interaction between the two. There is thus a strong architectural element to Saturn which extends to all constructed systems, including human hierarchies and institutions. Saturn’s position in a natal chart yields information about how well a person does with structure, as well as how they react to, and wield, authority.

Being so slow, Saturn is also more concerned with time than the other planets. Saturn highlights the way it changes things, and separates the enduring from the fleeting. For living beings, time always leads to death, another fundamental Saturn theme. Relationships with the past and the dead are thus well within the Saturnian sphere. Saturn’s slow progression also illustrates the laws of cause and effect — how actions, over time, create reality.

Saturn is the Greater Malefic in astrology, as it brings deprivation, fear, excessive cold, brittle-ness, depression, confinement and exclusion. Yet Saturn also teaches the virtues of patience, discipline, endurance and duty, and shows us how to maintain glacial calm in even the worst conditions.

Capricorn, represented by the Goat, or Sea-Goat, is an Earth sign, meaning that it is primarily concerned with the concrete layers of reality. Earth signs prefer facts to speculations, a bird in hand over two in the bush.

Capricorn is of the Cardinal mode, linking it to initiation and creation — the beginning phase of story-arcs. It is thus the sign where the Earth is reshaped in accord with intention. Mud becomes brick, and bricks become houses. The wet clay, patterned with intention, becomes sculpture. Capricorn’s essential dynamic is thus the imposition of pattern onto substance in conformity with will.

This projection of design onto the materia of the real is in perfect accord with Saturn’s architectural intentions. It is thus no surprise that Capricorn is considered to be ruled by the leaden planet. For here, Saturn expresses himself in an unmitigated, text-book manner, especially as concerns the planet’s heavier and more manifest significations. In Capricorn, Saturn wears no disguise, but presents himself in an archetypal fashion. He is Father Time, the Grim Reaper, the Grand Architect, and the Old Teacher.
And Pluto, Too!

One of the more important factors to consider when differentiating this installment of Saturn in Capricorn from previous instances, is Pluto. Pluto will be in Capricorn the entire time that Saturn is. The two have one exact conjunction, scheduled for January 12th, 2020. Even though they are only precisely aligned on that one day, their copresence will shape the entirety of Saturn’s time in the Goat pasture.

Pluto will serve to further complicate and intensify already potent Saturnian themes. Their copresence emphasizes what has gotten lost in the underworld and needs to be rescued. Contrarily, it also points to badly aging patterns which desperately need to be read their last rites. Saturn and Pluto’s time together also specifically targets the United States, as this is Pluto’s return to the same place it was when the US was founded. Though fascinating, this particular point is beyond the scope of an already sizable article, and best dealt with in a space all its own. Look for that down the line.”



Mars into Sorpio

From Empowering Astrology:  “Mars moves to the final degree of Libra, pointing us toward critical relationship issues. The final degree of every sign has an urgency to it, a scrutiny that demands we hold ourselves accountable. Mars in Libra has been six weeks of digging into trust, intimacy, and cooperation.
Come tomorrow, December 9, Mars will move into Scorpio. It’s been my feeling, ever since Jupiter arrived in Scorpio, that we wouldn’t really know the true nature of Jupiter in Scorpio until Mars got there, too. With Mars in Libra, however, a lot has been simmering below the surface, just out of view.
Libra is Scorpio’s 12th House (intermediate astrology alert) and if you know the 12th House at all, the action is in the non physical and in the realm of emotion, dreams, and solitary endeavors. And if Jupiter in Scorpio has been dragging up all our secrets, our shame, the darkness we’ve been hiding, then Mars and Jupiter combined may be like a dam breaking. Something to keep an eye on. (Want to know what Mars in Scorpio will mean for you? Check out my sign by sign guide below.)

Ronnie Pontiac: “Also on Saturday at 1AM Mars leaves Libra and enters Scorpio. Mars is weak in Libra but rules Scorpio. Prepare for more ugly secrets about men to be revealed. Libido may turn less romantic and more kinky with Mars in Scorpio. The negative possibilities include vengefulness, underhanded moves, manipulation but the consequences may be surprising. Instead use Mars in Scorpio to explore. It’s good for catharsis and for transformation.

Next Sunday about an hour and a half after midnight Mercury retrograde trine Uranus is exact again. A great time for writing and other creative communication. Read something futuristic. Find new tech or new community that can help liberate you. Instead of lamenting what is passing find ways to prosper in the new environment that is arriving.

Also on Sunday just before dawn Venus square Neptune is exact. On the negative side this can indicate a strong urge for intoxication and escapism. Romance can be misleading, the typical rose colored glasses scenario. But this can also be a time of great artistic inspiration if you put it in the effort. Jupiter trine Neptune and Saturn trine Uranus can indicate the creation of masterpieces.”
