Full Moon at 28 Libra this Saturday at 11:55am Pacific! This Moon brings issues around balance and relationships. Libra is the Scales and represents how we relate to other people, especially in our romantic relationships. This is a beautiful Full Moon, because Libra’s ruler, Venus, is currently in her best sign – Pisces. We are surrounded by love, art, beauty, friendship, negotiation, and win-win situations.

The big news this week is the conjunction between Jupiter and Neptune at 24 degrees Pisces. This happens once every 12 years, but RARELY in the sign of Pisces. It will have a huge positive impact on all of us since Jupiter and Neptune are the rulers of Pisces and fully express their energies here. This conjunction is going on all week, and will enhance intuition, prosperity, creativity, inspiration, music, and good luck! Jupiter is faith, expansion, and opportunity, and combined with the unlimited potential of Neptune, can uplift us and give us an escape from the terrible realities happening in the news.

Most of the major planets are in the last degrees of their signs, which signifies culmination. We are experiencing the release, the death, the endings and closures of what we have always known and relied on; the people, the jobs, the governments, the societal structure that we’ve always depended on are being swept away. And at the same time, the North Node (direction) in Taurus is calling each of us to be self sufficient. This year we are flexing our muscles and learning to do things on our own without support, and that can be really tough. You have to be strong.

As a reminder, ALL the planets are Direct now! You can make real progress with this forward motion. The Moon, however, is opposing almost every planet this week, so emotionally we are running a gauntlet of different relationships and situations.

Monday, April 11th: Moon in Leo all day, and no exact aspects. Great day to explore imagination, creativity, or to spend time with animals. Leo is great for leadership, joy, performance, self-expression and FUN. Saturn squares the Moon’s nodes today, which can bring up karmic stuff, along with old emotional ties. We might feel a pull between who we were and who we are becoming. Try and remember your dreams tonight.

Tuesday, April 12th: Moon in Virgo. The Moon opposes Venus = relationship show downs release blocks. Jupiter conjunct Neptune is EXACT today! What are you dreaming about? Take some steps toward achieving the grand vision you have for yourself. Also today, Sun is sextile Saturn which is another positive link between our souls and purpose. All of these aspects favor getting organized and finishing overdue work to achieve creative vision. Saturn and Virgo lend themselves to study and practice, and help ground the high spiritual energies of Neptune and Jupiter.

Wednesday, April 13th: Moon in Virgo all day. The Moon opposes Neptune in Pisces which continues the energies from yesterday. Remember, all the planets in Pisces are asking – what is your dream? What is your current vision for yourself and what would you like to see happen? Sun conjunct Eris could bring more terrible discoveries in Ukraine, so manage your news consumption.

Thursday, April 14th: Moon in Virgo enters Libra at 1:46pm. We are in the orb of the Full Moon, so watch for messages and direction. Mars into Pisces in the evening is not so great for forward progress with things we desire, it waters down our egos and libidos. Men could be more distant over the next few weeks so be patient with them.

Friday, April 15th: Moon in Libra all day. It’s an incredibly romantic day, so take your sweetie out tonight. Great for connecting with people, making new friends and generally being sociable. This is a culmination of things we started last October, and an opportunity for forward motion. Since tomorrow’s Full Moon is squaring Pluto in Capricorn, we know what we want in relation to the big changes in the world.

Saturday, April 16th: Full Moon in Libra at noon Pacific, then into Scorpio at 5:23pm. This is a very romantic weekend, perfect for connecting with lovers or creating deeper connections in any relationship. With the Libra/Scorpio energy, we can also make progress with agreements or business matters. Spend time with people that inspire you! Sun square Pluto

Sunday, April 17th: Moon in Scorpio makes this a day of regeneration and Magick. We still have a Libra influence from the Full Moon yesterday, so this also a day of rebalancing. Today, we finally tend to things we haven’t been able to get to this week. Do what you need to do to care of yourself and others.

Friday’s New Moon at 11 Aries continues to unfold this week, as Mars makes an exact conjunction with Saturn at 23 Aquarius (improvement, liberation, the future). What are you driven towards? This aspect focuses our Will, self-control and discipline. It’s not enough to have big ideas and ambitions, Saturn makes you work hard for them. With this conjunction we are open to direction from authority figures, and we follow the tried-and-true path. This increases our chances for success! There are limits on pushing TOO hard though – you need to play by Saturn’s rules.

Also, this Mars-Saturn conjunction is exactly square the Moon’s nodes. Something will come up this week that is non-negotiable. There’s something you MUST DO, in order to proceed in life towards the North Node in Taurus (unconditional self-love, abundance, prosperity, self-sufficiency). This is where each of us is headed right now. We will see a major change in the next couple of weeks, both with this aspect, and next week with the exact conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune.

The Aries New Moon last Friday was conjunct Mercury and Chiron. It was a new beginning for the year ahead, but also the start of a new phase of healing our deepest wounds. We can find this healing through reading, talking, writing, listening, therapy or any form of self-expression. Once we reach a new understanding, it is important to feel the pain and grieve. Owning the hurt feelings is the way to deep peace.

Monday, April 4th: Moon in Taurus is exalted, especially on a Monday. Normally it would be great for Moon Magick, but today we also have Mars conjunct Saturn. Keep a low profile and focus on your inner work. There’s some wonderful progress that can be made, but these planets are both malefics, so there is a threat of anger and violence.

Tuesday, April 5th: Moon in Gemini brings sociability and negotiation. This is a fast-moving day, and there will be lots of developments. Venus moves into Pisces at 8:18am Pacific, which is the sign of her exaltation or greatest expression. Taureans and Librans are going to have a great couple of months. Venus in Pisces is inspiring, creative, dreamy, imaginative, and romantic. Don’t get lost in lustful fantasies, no matter how enticing. This is a wonderful placement for all artists.

Wednesday, April 6th: Moon in Gemini makes five different aspects today – positive trines with Mars, Saturn and Venus, while squaring Jupiter and Neptune. There could be harmony and great communication in relationships today, but the squares bring general confusion. No big decisions today, focus on mindfulness and getting grounded.

Thursday, April 7th: Moon in Cancer makes a lovely trine with Venus newly in Pisces. It’s a romantic and sentimental day. Also, Mercury sextile Saturn is exact, which brings grounded communications. We choose our words carefully and communicate what’s really on our minds. Great day for studying and applying yourself to anything mentally challenging. If you get overwhelmed, take some deep breaths and meditate.

Friday, April 8th: Moon in Cancer has you staying home and nesting. Be gentle… Easy Does It. Creativity, nostalgia, food, and emotional release are good uses of this energy. Today Mercury sextile Mars is exact, which supercharges our minds from yesterday’s shifts. There will be more good news and development about our ideas.

Saturday, April 9th: Moon in Cancer goes void-of-course at 6pm. Stay home tonight. Avoid difficult conversations because sensitivities are high. The Moon is opposite Pluto today (while Pluto squares Mercury) so there could be a new understanding, OR tension and control issues.

Sunday, April 10th: Moon in Leo brings us back to our center, to our reason for being. In the evening, Mercury enters Taurus – where he’s not all that happy. The lightning-fast Messenger doesn’t like the slow pace of the Bull. Also, Mercury square Pluto is exact which is rough because our Mind faces the Dark Side. Good day for shadow work i.e. examining self-sabotage, toxic patterns, fears, and control issues. Repressed thoughts and desires could rise to the surface. Watch out for negative thinking in your head or from the mouths of other people.

The Sun entered Aries at 8:33am Pacific on Sunday, and it’s officially Spring! Hail unto Ostara and the spirit of rebirth! This is the astrological New Year, and has been celebrated all over the world since ancient times. This time of year is a major turning point for each of us. The metaphoric seeds we plant now will continue to grow throughout the year ahead.

Last Thursday’s Full Moon in Virgo is still unfolding this week, so there will be continued developments with any issues you are facing right now. The 4th quarter starts this Thursday. This is Aries season, so take some time to reflect on how you’d like the upcoming Moon cycle to go. If you need a personal reading on how this Aries cycle will affect you, book a short reading with me here for $45.

Monday, March 21st: Moon in Scorpio. Mercury caught up with Jupiter last night, and made a lovely conjunction in Pisces – very close to Neptune. Today, the Moon comes along in Scorpio and trines all three of them, bringing joyful, expansive moods and communications. Today is transformative. Healing is favored along with strength, and an unwavering view of our shadow sides. This Moon brings out the truth, but also makes people sensitive, so avoid social complications.

Tuesday, March 22nd: Moon in Scorpio, moving into Sagittarius at noon. Also, Mars square Uranus will be exact. This aspect can bring risky actions, crankiness, sudden outbursts or anger. Give tense people a wide berth this week and avoid confrontations. There could be escalation in the Russian invasion of Ukraine too. Watch for sudden developments or changes at work, and stop any psychological examinations of other peoples’ behavior. Focus instead on healing and rebirthing yourself.

Wednesday, March 23rd: Moon in Sagittarius brings an optimistic mood. Look at your goals and aim for your highest ideals. Mercury conjuncts Neptune in Pisces today, which can create confusion with communication and understanding. The edges of our boundaries and motivations are blurred, but it’s a wonderful time to access imagination. A conjunction brings a positive blending of energies, so taking action towards your dreams can yield excellent results, especially with writing. Also great for scrying, divination, and exploring psychic or religious worlds.

Thursday, March 24th: Moon in Sagittarius moves into Capricorn at 2:54pm Pacific, and makes a nice sextile to the Sun. Drives, ambition, and tenacity are in alignment today. No big aspects today, just lots of hard work. Not the right day to seek concessions from authority figures – leave that until next week.

Friday, March 25th: Moon in Capricorn enters her 4th quarter, and we are in the dark of the Moon. Now is the time for solitude, introspection, and rest. This Moon ushers us into a working weekend. Friday is usually date night, but it won’t be a romantic evening unless you’ve finished your chores. From Capricorn, we build our lives from a solid foundation. Where are you right now? The only way forward today is through concentration.

Saturday, March 26th: Moon in Capricorn moves into Aquarius at 5:55pm Pacific. Moon in Capricorn/Aquarius, on a Saturday, is GREAT for saturnian Magick, i.e. discipline, structure and commitment. Saturn represents our stability, and brings up themes of structure, time, karma, and authority. 

Sunday, March 27th: Moon in Aquarius. Mercury enters Aries which adds to the feelings of Spring and rebirth. Everything is “resetting” itself, and we are getting ready to bloom. It’s the beginning of a new yearly cycle, and our thinking is ambitious.

Full Moon at 28 Virgo, this Thursday after midnight. This Moon brings organization and assimilation. I view Virgo as the sign of the High Priestess, inspiring us to own our power, and live in our authenticity. With Virgo we get REAL and accept what life has given us. The problem though, is Virgo’s ruler Mercury is currently wallowing in Pisces. He’s unable to express himself there, and his quickness gets watered down with dreams and intuition. So yeah, there may not be a lot of clarity this week. It’s a balance between taking care of business and trusting our intuition.

And as a reminder, ALL the planets are Direct now! You can make real progress with this forward motion. The Moon, however, is opposing almost every planet this week, so emotionally we are running a gauntlet of different relationships and situations.

The Moon’s North Node is exactly trining the Full Moon, so our forward path becomes clear and easy. The Moon trines the North Node (the future), so a new story is revealed in the houses that contain Taurus and Scorpio. There are choices to make today, so focus on what you’d like to create in your life. The past will be showing up at 27 Scorpio, and the future at 27 Taurus.

Monday, March 14th: Moon in Leo all day, and no exact aspects. Great day to explore imagination, creativity, or to spend time with animals. Leo is great for leadership, joy, performance, self-expression and FUN.

Tuesday, March 15th: Moon is void of course in Leo ALL DAY. YIKES. Be very cautious with people and their egos today. Let other people have the spotlight, be patient on the road and avoid all risks. This is a spectacular day to explore creativity in any arena. Engage in pleasure and express yourself through art. We are in the orb of the Full Moon, so watch for messages and direction.

Wednesday, March 16th: Moon in Virgo all day. The Moon is exactly opposing most of the other planets, since Mercury, Jupiter, Neptune and the Sun are all in Pisces. Remember, the huge energy in Pisces has been asking – what is your dream? What is your current vision for yourself and what would you like to see happen? Virgo is great for manifestation, so this week’s Full Moon could bring some solid opportunities for each of us.

Thursday, March 17th: Moon in Virgo. The Moon opposes Jupiter and trines Venus, which could bring some positive relationship developments that release blocks. Follow the tried-and-true path and manage health and wellness. With the Virgo Moon you’ll want to clean and organize your surroundings, which always helps to clear the mind.

Friday, March 18th: Full Moon in Virgo at 12:18am, then into Libra in the predawn hours. This is a culmination of things we started last September, and an opportunity for forward motion. Since this Full Moon is trining Pluto in Capricorn, we know what we want in relation to the big changes in the world. Avoid self-criticism.

Saturday, March 19th: Moon in Libra makes this a day of rebalancing. Do what you need to do to care of yourself and others. Today, we finally tend to things we haven’t been able to get to this week. Spend time with people that inspire you! Moon in Libra trines the Venus/Mars conjunction which brings connection in relationships.

Sunday, March 20th: SUN ENTERS ARIES at 8:33am Pacific heralding the coming of Spring. It’s the beginning of the astrological year! For the next month we celebrate new beginnings and plant the seeds we’d like to grow this year. Moon in Scorpio all day makes this a day of regeneration and Magick.

Last Wednesday’s New Moon at 12 Pisces continues to unfold, and this week two giants of the sky join the Piscean party – the Sun and Jupiter. These planets are the greatest benefics in astrology, and each brings joy, luck, money and expansion in their own right. In a conjunction, like we have this week, they initiate a rebirth. This weekend they joined up in their annual conjunction, bringing forth a new era for each of us.

We are still reeling from last week though, and we could use some positive energy. Mars, Venus and Pluto were conjunct last Thursday at 27 Capricorn, starting us on a new descent into the underworld. This is a challenging conjunction. Mars has been volatile the past few months, and we are witnessing the horrific results with Putin’s unprovoked attack on Ukraine.

Mars and Venus just entered Aquarius together this weekend, starting a new, two-year cycle. I’m hoping the focus will change from conquest to humanitarian pursuits. Most of the planets are traveling through new territory. Everything is resetting itself and starting new cycles. There’s a lot of energy up in the air, and many of us are feeling lost and confused. One good way to work through this, is to keep a consistent spiritual practice. If you do something every morning, it will help you make sense of the changes in the world, and in your own psyche. Pisces is a time of endings, surrender, and union with the divine.

Monday, March 7th: Moon in Taurus is exalted, especially on a Monday! Today is excellent for Moon Magick: anything involving fertility, women’s issues, children, nurturing, your home, animals, intuition and emotions. Don’t try and negotiate with authority figures today, let them win the argument. Also, things slow waaaay down with the Moon in Taurus, and we indulge in sensual delights. Get yourself an excellent dinner because Taurus loves food.

Tuesday, March 8th: Moon into Gemini at 10:40am Pacific trines Pluto, then Venus and Mars. This is a fast-moving day, and there will be lots of communication on all levels. Developments are rapid, and we feel like we’re getting things done. THIS is a great day for networking, commerce, business, groups, transactions and social activities. We get moving today.

Wednesday, March 9th: Moon in Gemini all day as his ruler, Mercury, enters Pisces. Mercury is in his “fall” here, which means he is extraordinarily unhappy. Mercury, representing our minds, is unable to focus or move with any speed while moving through Pisces. Lots of confusing currents today, so ride the waves. Moon squares Jupiter in Pisces too, which adds to the confusion.

Thursday, March 10th: Moon is void-of-course in Gemini ALL DAY!! Don’t do anything of any importance. Follow plans that are pre-arranged and drive carefully. Despite the void moon it will be a chatty day with lots of activity. With Mercury in Pisces, important decisions could be difficult to formulate. Practice mindfulness.

Friday, March 11th: Moon in Cancer all day, and we become homebodies. Take the day off if you can, or work from home. Be gentle… Easy Does It. Creativity, nostalgia, food, and emotional release are good uses of this energy. It’s a good date night, but people will be sensitive and vulnerable, so be aware.

Saturday, March 12th: Moon in Cancer. Avoid difficult conversations today because sensitivities are high. Also, the Moon is opposite Pluto today, bringing up tensions and control issues.

Sunday, March 13th: Moon into Leo at 12:32pm Pacific. There’s a lot of planets in transition right now, and we are finding new ways of looking at things. The Moon in Leo brings us back to our center, to our reason for being. We reconnect with ourselves today – in a BIG way. The Sun conjuncts Neptune today as well.

The Moon has entered her 3rd quarter, and there will be continued developments this week from last Tuesday’s Full Moon in Leo. The New Moon in Pisces is nine days away on Wednesday March 2nd. What does this mean? YOU get to REST this week! Take some time to reflect on how you’d like the upcoming Moon cycle to go. If you need a personal reading on how this Pisces cycle will affect you, book a short reading with me here for $45.

This week we are letting go, wrapping stuff up, paying off debts, and clearing our lives of stagnant energy.

The Sun has left the stratosphere of Aquarius, and is traveling through the early degrees of Pisces, the Fish. This is the last sign of the zodiac and encourages us to reflect and release. Let go of the past and anything you’ve outgrown. The Fish asks us to let go of boundaries and reality, and merge with the God of our Heart.
Join with the oneness.

Monday, February 21st: Moon in Scorpio trines Jupiter and squares Mercury today. Communications will be deep, intense, and transformative. There are no trivialities today, and our minds think strategically. Healing is favored along with strength, and an unwavering view of our shadow sides. Visit the ocean or hang out by a pool. This Moon brings out the truth, but also makes people sensitive, so avoid social complications. Moon opposing Uranus Monday night may involve surprises or interruptions.

Tuesday, February 22nd: Moon in Scorpio. Watch for power plays or manipulation tactics at work. Don’t get into psychological examinations of other peoples’ behavior – it won’t lead anywhere. Focus instead on healing and rebirthing yourself. A Scorpio Moon on a Tuesday, especially with Mars currently exalted in Capricorn, is FABULOUS for Mars Magick. Rituals that bring the truth or set boundaries are excellent today.

Wednesday, February 23rd: Moon in Sagittarius enters her 4th quarter, and we are in the dark of the Moon. Now is the time for solitude, introspection, and rest. At the same time, the Sagittarian moon makes us expansive and optimistic. Reassess your goals and aim for your highest ideals. Also, Mars sextile Neptune happens – blurring our boundaries and motivations. A sextile brings a positive blending of energies, so taking action towards your dreams can yield excellent results.

Thursday, February 24th: Moon in Sagittarius continues. Mars and Venus are basically conjunct this week, and today form a sextile to Neptune. This is excellent for relationships, and progress can be made in connecting with others. However, Mercury is also square Uranus today, which can bring a craving for independence, sudden events, and misunderstandings. Keep yourself grounded and be alert for revelations.

Friday, February 25th: Moon in Capricorn leads us into a working weekend. Friday is usually date night, but it won’t be a romantic evening unless you’re working with your paramour. From Capricorn, we build our lives from a solid foundation. Where are you right now? The only way forward today is through concentration and hard work.

Saturday, February 26th: Moon in Capricorn, and the mood is serious. Moon in Capricorn, on a Saturday, is GREAT for saturnian Magick, i.e. discipline, structure and commitment. Saturn represents our stability, and brings up themes of structure, time, karma, and authority. 

Sunday, February 27th: Moon conjuncts Pluto in the morning bringing heaviness but moves into Aquarius at 10:33am. We have a nice trine with Mercury in the afternoon which will lighten the mood.

Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s romantic to have a passionate Full Moon in Leo shining for us this week. This Moon enhances creativity, and shines a strong light, allowing us to see NEW things. Also, Wednesday’s Full Moon at 28 Leo is part of a Yod or “finger of God” aspect. There will be a strong sense of clarity. The Yod means there’s something that will demand your attention – something that will need harmonizing. PAY ATTENTION to what comes up – it will have something to do with identity, self-expression and following your heart.

ALL the planets are Direct now too.

The Moon’s Nodes are exactly squaring the Full Moon, so this week we are at a crossroads. The past will be showing up at 27 Scorpio, and the future at 27 Taurus. What do you want to do with your life? Mercury is entering Aquarius on Monday bringing a lot of clarity.

Monday, February 14th: Moon in Leo all day. Mercury enters Aquarius bringing tremendous clarity and vision. We are in the orb of the Full Moon, so watch for messages and direction. Great day to explore imagination, creativity, or to spend time with animals.

Tuesday, February 15th: Moon in Leo. Engage in pleasure and express yourself through art. Have fun!! With the Leo Moon it’s a great evening to see first rate performances. Yes you can get what you want.

Wednesday, February 16th: Full Moon at 28 Leo at 9am Pacific. Moon goes void-of-course, then enters Virgo at 12:42pm. We are upbeat and joyful. This is the day when the Sun squares the South Node (the past) and the North Node (the future). A new story is revealed in the houses that contain Taurus and Scorpio. There are choices to make today, so focus on what you’d like to create in your life. Mars and Venus conjunct at 16 Capricorn sets a new foundation for relationships!

Thursday, February 17th: Moon in Virgo. The Moon opposes Jupiter and trines Venus, which could bring some positive relationship developments that release blocks. Follow the tried-and-true path and manage health and wellness. With the Virgo Moon you’ll want to clean and organize your surroundings, which always helps to clear the mind. Jupiter sextile Uranus also happens today, giving a wonderful boost to Aquarius, Sagittarius, Taurus and Pisces people.

Friday, February 18th: SUN ENTERS PISCES at 8:43am Pacific. It’s the beginning of a new astrological month, however the Sun in Pisces represents the end of the astrological year. This month is when we reflect on 2021, wrap up loose ends, and explore intuition, imagination and emotions. Moon in Virgo goes void-of-course at 3:20pm, then into Libra at 7:51pm.

Saturday, February 19th: Moon in Libra all day = more romance. Each of us regains our balance from the extreme events of this week. Spend time with people that inspire you and take care of things you’ve been avoiding.

Sunday, February 20th: Moon in Libra squares the Venus/Mars conjunction and could cause some relationship issues. The Moon continues on to square the Mercury/Pluto conjunction in the middle of the night, giving a chance for rebirth through communication.

The Full Moon in Cancer is usually a sweet, gentle event, but today’s Full Moon is opposite Pluto and the Sun. This could be a tough week. Pluto is the planet of catharsis, evolution, death, and regeneration. Look for emotional resolutions this week. When the Sun and Pluto are conjunct, it’s the end of a major phase of growth and the start of another. This Full Moon will also square the Nodes of Fate. This asks each of us to come to terms with the past and make profound choices about how to move forward. It isn’t easy this week. Each of us is going through a hard test. Feed what you want to grow in your life, focus on that.

Mercury is now retrograde at 10° Aquarius – and conjunct Saturn at the same time. Communications are serious. Expect secrets to be revealed, and the truth to be spoken. Mercury in Aquarius is revolutionary and lightning fast, so things can arise out of nowhere. The only way to walk through Mercury here, is to think strategically, and negotiate when you’re in a good position. Also, this week the North Node moves into Taurus for the first time since 2003, and Uranus goes Direct! Expect changes ahead!

Monday, January 17th: Full Moon in Cancer at 3:48pm Pacific. Moon opposite Pluto is a major catharsis. Avoid difficult conversations today because sensitivities are high, but comfort yourself and make room for all of your feelings. Be gentle… Easy Does It. Creativity, nostalgia, food, and emotional release are good uses of this energy.

Tuesday, January 18th: Moon in Leo, and Uranus stations Direct in the early morning. This is a big lightning bolt of energy! Expect to be jolted. There could be a complete reversal of your path today. Expect the unexpected, and let your eccentricities guide you. With a Leo Moon, engage in pleasure and express yourself through art. A good week for creativity so paint, write, film and play.

Wednesday, January 19th: Moon in Leo and the Sun enters Aquarius at 6:38pm Pacific. The mood changes and becomes more upbeat. This is the day when the Sun squares the South Node (the past) and the North Node (the future). A new story is revealed in the houses that contain Taurus and Scorpio. There’s choices to make today, so focus on what you’d like to create in your life. With the Leo Moon it’s a great evening to see first rate performances.

Thursday, January 20th: Moon void-of-course in Leo ALL DAY, entering Virgo at 6:00pm Pacific. Lay low, don’t make any spontaneous moves. Follow the tried-and-true path. Great day to explore imagination, creativity, or to spend time with animals.

Friday, January 21st: Moon in Virgo moves into an opposition with Jupiter and Neptune, and trines Venus. There could be some positive relationship developments today that could release blocks. With Jupiter and Neptune in the mix, try not to overindulge in escapist activities. With the Virgo Moon you’ll want to clean and organize your surroundings, which always helps to clear the mind.

Saturday, January 22nd: Moon in Virgo goes void at 11:45am, then into Libra around 2:00pm. No big decisions or proclamations when the Moon is void, just go with the flow. Each of us regains our balance after the extreme events of this week. Spend time with people that inspire you.

Sunday, January 23rd: Moon in Libra squares Venus and could cause some relationship issues. There’s a couple of lovely trines with Mercury and Saturn however, that will help us talk and process through it.

The Sun moves through the last degrees of Capricorn this week, culminating with a Full Moon in Cancer next Monday, January 17th. That’s a LOT of energy focused on our home and family life. Pluto at 26 Capricorn is also in the mix. This energy encourages transformation and spiritual evolution. You are evolving, especially in the material, earthy sides of your life. Pluto presents us with opportunities to evolve and transform – usually whether we want to or not.

Mercury turns retrograde in Aquarius this Friday, January 14th while squaring Uranus. A revolution could be brewing in your personal life, since Uranus calls us to freedom and liberation. The square aspect, means there’s a test we need to overcome so we can turn a corner and start a fresh path. Mercury stationing, and squaring Uranus, can bring lots of nervousness and uncertainty due to sudden changes and events. There could be extremes, and changes in plans.

We also have Venus retrograde conjunct Pluto. Virgos, Capricorns and Pisceans, you will benefit by paying attention to Venus all through January.

Monday, January 10th: Moon in Taurus is exalted, especially on a Monday! Today is excellent for Moon Magick. With Taurus, do not confront or negotiate with authority figures, let them win the argument. You can push back next week. Also, things slow waaaay down with the Moon in Taurus, and we indulge in sensual delights. Get yourself an excellent dinner because Taurus loves food.

Tuesday, January 11th: Moon in Taurus. Slow, quiet day. Any activity that awakens the five senses is highlighted. Get outside today and appreciate nature. Taurus is love, beauty, passion, commitment, nature, and animals. Avoid power struggles, control issues and obsession. Pushiness and bullying will get you nowhere. Mars in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces at 20 degrees. Agendas could get watered down or confused, so don’t be discouraged if actions don’t bring immediate results.

Wednesday, January 12th: Moon void-of-course in Taurus all day, into Gemini at 7:08pm Pacific. Moon conjuncts Uranus, then trines Venus accentuating the earthy, sensual, Taurus vibe. Any activity that awakens the five senses is highlighted. Mercury is slowing down, preparing to go retrograde on Friday, so actions may not bear results this week.

Thursday, January 13th: Moon in Gemini squares Jupiter in Pisces then trines Mercury in Aquarius. Chatty day with lots of activity, but with Mercury stationing, important decisions could be difficult to formulate. Listen to others, respect their wishes and look to the common good.

Friday, January 14th: Mercury goes retrograde in the pre dawn hours at 9 Aquarius. With Mercury stationing, hold off on important conversations or purchases. Moon in Gemini goes void-of-course at 6:22pm Pacific, kicking off a social and talkative evening. Mind the details of your life. The Moon in Gemini will help us communicate openly about our feelings. Mercury retrograde until Feb. 3rd.

Saturday, January 15th: Moon in Cancer. Avoid difficult conversations today because sensitivities are high. Be gentle… Easy Does It. Creativity, nostalgia, food, and emotional release are good uses of this energy. We are in the orb of the Full Moon Monday night.

Sunday, January 16th: Moon in Cancer and Sun conjunct Pluto. Be prepared for some intensity with this aspect and the approaching Full Moon. Pluto lets you access the deepest darkest parts of your subconscious – bringing them to the light – in order to eliminate fear and heal past trauma.

Venus in the Underworld

The planet Venus follows a mystical course through the skies, which has been interpreted in various ways by ancient cultures around the world. It’s important right now, because this weekend was one of the most powerful moments of her cycle. Last Saturday, January 8th, Venus was perfectly conjunct the Sun at 19 Capricorn. This is a key moment, because this represents Venus “in the underworld”.

The Venus cycle begins when she appears as the evening star; visible high in the West above the horizon at Sunset. This happened last Fall – in October/November 2021. I remember seeing her during my evening walks. When she reached her highest point, she turned retrograde (moved backwards), and began a slow descent towards the Sun. Every evening she appeared a little lower in the sky, until January 3rd when she disappeared in the fires of the Sun.

When the Sun and Venus are conjunct, the Sun is simply too bright for Venus to be seen. Because Venus disappears, she is said to enter the “underworld”. It’s called an “inferior conjunction”, meaning the planet Venus is between the Sun and the Earth. This is an important phase! Let your life mirror the cycle of Venus. Go inward and disolve yourself. Release limitations, and prepare for a rebirth. While Venus is traveling through the Underworld, each of us can undergo our own deep, personal transformation, and it’s happening right now.

After her meeting with the Sun, Venus continues through the underworld. She finally rises in the East, in the pre-dawn sky, about a week later. At this moment, she is reborn as the Morning Star, or Lucifer the “light bearer”, and becomes the herald of a new path. In our current cycle, she emerges on January 15th completely transformed.

Venus will be the morning star from January 15th to February 4th. When she reappears, each of us is reborn as a warrior. It’s a powerful burst of youthful, feminine energy, and we can pursue what we really want. We emerge renewed and revitalized.

For now however, each of us is in a cocoon, reshaping ourselves. You may be feeling yourself going through a lot of changes. We are letting go of old relationships, possessions, ideals, fantasies and attitudes. It’s a deep, personal, inner transformation through inner fire. Take some time for yourself this week. Spend some time alone… in solitude. Rebirth yourself with creativity, beauty and harmony. With Pluto nearby, this adds up to a period of deep evolution for each of us.
