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!

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.

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 .. . .
