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.

Week of February 14th: Full Moon in Leo

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 26 Aquarius (Sun in its detriment – no Sun Magick now)

Venus at 16 Capricorn
Mars at 15 Capricorn

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.

Thích Nhất Hạnh

January 22 at 3:14 AM  · 

This body is not me, I am not limited by this body.
I am life without boundaries.
I have never been born, and I have never died.
Look at the infinite oceans and skies filled with stars, Manifestations from the basis of consciousness
Since beginningless time I have been free.
Birth and death are only doors through which we pass,
sacred thresholds on our journey.
Birth and death are a game of hide-and-seek.
So laugh with me, hold my hand, let us say good-bye, say good-bye, to meet again soon.
We meet today,
We will meet again tomorrow.
We will meet at the source every moment.
We meet each other in all forms, on the myriad paths of life.
~ Thích Nhất Hạnh, “No Death, No Fear” (11 Oct 1926 – 22 Jan 2022)

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

Parmigianino “Circe with the Companions of Ulysses”, ca. 1527 Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence

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.

The Moon has entered her 4th quarter, so this week we are in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle. The New Moon in Capricorn is on Sunday morning. 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 Capricorn cycle will effect you, you can 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. This is particularly important now, because the Year of the Tiger starts on February 1st, 2022, and the Tiger brings drama. You will want to have your life sorted out as much as possible by then. More on that later.

For now, the Sun has left the fires of Sagittarius, and is traveling through the early degrees of Capricorn, the sea goat. This sign forces us to strengthen the foundation of our lives so we can survive the harsh Winter. Capricorn is also harsh. The goat demands we face reality, and do the hard work necessary to move ahead. There’s no short cuts and you can’t pay your big brother to do it for you. YOU have do the work and apply yourself; then you can walk easily over the impossible terrain of the wild goat.

Monday, December 27th: Moon in Libra trines Saturn in Aquarius in the pre dawn hours, but there are no other aspects. We’re still in the middle of huge energy shifts from this weekend – particularly the Venus-Pluto conjunction, and the square between Saturn and Uranus last Friday. Today’s Moon in Libra seeks balance, so balance is the best thing to focus on today. Walk the middle road between work and play, family and individuality, and love and independence.

Tuesday, December 28th: Moon in Libra squares Mercury, Venus and Pluto in the early morning, then enters Scorpio at 1:16pm Pacific. There could be real tests for relationships and partnerships today, but Moon in Libra is great for reaching agreements. Try to hammer things out with people in the morning. Major sextile between Mars and Uranus in the afternoon can bring unexpected developments, and the Moon in Scorpio accentuates power plays, so stay present. Happy news? JUPITER enters PISCES in the evening YAY!!!!

Wednesday, December 29th: Moon in Scorpio makes us witchy. Mercury and Venus conjunct in Capricorn in the early morning, which brings an agreeable vibe to the day. Jupiter newly in Pisces is a wonderful energy which brings optimism and joy to all of us, but particularly Sagittarians. Mars sextiles Saturn in the evening, and we can make good progress by working hard.

Thursday, December 30th: Moon void-of-course in Scorpio all day, entering Sagittarius at 3:08pm Pacific. Mercury and Pluto conjunct in Capricorn in the early morning brings further information about yesterday’s developments. This is a huge aspect. Moon in Scorpio sextiles Venus, Pluto and Mercury in the morning, bringing positive energies to the big evolution impacting relationships nowadays. Expect occult experiences and deep conversations with people.

Friday, December 31st: Moon in Sagittarius on New Year’s Eve is a PARTY! I’m sure you’ll will have fun tonight. The mood is expansive and the vibe is optimistic. This Moon brings out the truth and adjusts our life perspective. Sagittarius is a wild, liberated, adventurous sign with high ideals. The Centaur wants us to look at our goals, because it’s the sign of the Archer! New Year’s Eve is a great night to decide on your goals for the upcoming year.

Saturday, January 1st: New Year’s Day. Moon void-of-course in Sagittarius all day, entering Capricorn at 3:02pm Pacific. Mercury goes into Capricorn in the middle of the night, followed by a New Moon in Capricorn tomorrow. The conditions are fantastic for making resolutions and committments today. Moon in Capricorn, on a Saturday, is GREAT for saturnian Magick, i.e. discipline, structure and committment. Saturn represents our stability, and brings up themes of structure, time, karma, and authority. 

Sunday, January 2nd: New Moon in Capricorn at 10:33am takes us to the bottom of this year’s energy. From Capricorn, we build up our lives and our year from a new foundation. Where are you right now? Where do you want to be? The sea goat can help you connect the present to the future using practicality and hard work. Remember, the mountain goat can step carefully through seemingly impossible terrain, so remain undaunted by obstacles and forge ahead!

There will be continued developments this week from the dramatic Full Moon in Gemini on Saturday night. This Moon inspires us to start a new story in our lives; a new narrative. The Sun enters Capricorn on Tuesday, ushering in the Winter Solstice. We leave the optimistic fires of Sagittarius for the stern, cold hillsides of Capricorn. This turns our focus to the foundations of our lives, and creating new stability. With Capricorn season, the mood withers, and we are faced with reality, the bottom line, our career, finances and survival.

Monday, December 20th:  Moon in Cancer makes some lovely aspects but brings heightened sensitivity, so step carefully around peoples’ feelings. Go with the flow of your life, and put your energies towards things you have control over. The Moon in Cancer (the Moon’s natural home), on a MONDAY (day of the Moon), means you can do big Moon Magick. Anything involving security, the home, plants, cooking, nurturing, children, fertility or creativity is highlighted.

Tuesday, December 21st: Winter Solstice. Sun enters Capricorn at 8:00am, and the Moon is void-of-course in Cancer, entering Leo at 1:54pm Pacific. The Moon opposes Venus and Pluto too, which brings intensity to the day. Relationship issues could arise in order to be healed and released. Slow down and take your time with projects – there’s no rush.

Wednesday, December 22nd: Moon in Leo gives us a refreshed, lighter attitude today. Lead with your heart and focus on self expression. There’s some tricky aspects in the afternoon though: Moon opposes Saturn and squares Uranus in the late morning. This could bring up difficulties, and you’ll need to work to solve them. Patience is the only way through these energies. Take a break if you need to.

Thursday, December 23rd: Moon in Leo sextiles Neptune, Pluto and Venus today. This can bring small, positive developments with relationships. Peace can be achieved, and people will seek to connect through natural affinity. Today is good for seeking acknowledgement and cooperation from those in leadership positions. Also, entertainment will bring relaxation and happiness.

Friday, December 24th: Christmas Eve. Moon in Virgo makes us budget conscious, so last-minute shopping could become practically oriented. Also, the third and final Saturn square Uranus is exact today, igniting the friction between the old way of doing things and the new world approaching us. This has been the ongoing influence of this entire year – the battle between the old, traditional world and the new, progressive future. Choose your battles.

Saturday, December 25th: Christmas Day. Moon in Virgo trines Uranus and Mercury, which can bring sudden surprises. It will be a busy day. The best use of Virgo energy today is to follow a plan, put out healthy snacks, be of service and keep the house tidy. Avoid criticism and over-analysis. There could be a dark undercurrent – with retrograde Venus conjuncting Pluto for the second time. Release old, toxic energies and focus on healing.

Sunday, December 26th: Moon in Libra enters her 4th quarter. Kwanzaa begins, and in England it’s Boxing Day. The Moon trines Venus and Pluto today, bringing positive developments to the themes of this week. Mercury also sextiles Neptune which allows our minds to wander and be inspired. Spend quality time with the ones you love.

The best time to observe them is December 12, 2021; look for the celestial objects right after sunset. Venus, Saturn, Jupiter, and the Moon will be visible to the naked eye. A pair of binoculars or a small telescope will help you to see the dimmer Neptune, Uranus, Ceres, and Pallas. 🔭

  • Although there is now an official scientific definition of the term “planet parade,” astronomers use it to denote an astronomical event that happens when Solar System planets line up in the same sky area as seen from the Earth.

The Sun moves through the last degrees of Scorpio this week, culminating with an ECLIPSE/Full Moon THIS Thursday night at 27 Taurus. That’s a LOT of force and power, but it’s also trine to Pluto over in Capricorn. This energy encourages transformation and spiritual evolution. You are evolving, especially in the material, earthy sides of your life. Pluto doesn’t leave us a choice either – it’s something you have to do. This lunar eclipse lets you access the deepest darkest parts of your subconscious – bringing them to the light – in order to eliminate fear and heal past trauma. This Moon brings peak experiences with beauty, health, relationships, money, home, job and survival. Taurus is a money sign, and indicates prosperity and love. Since this Full Moon takes place in the last degrees of Taurus, we are completing a personal cycle of growth, and something new is about to begin. The Sun enters Sagittarius next Sunday.

The last month has been a deep dive into exploring our ambitions, healing psychological wounds and uncovering hidden agendas. Sun in Scorpio represents personal power and the truth, and wherever it appears in your chart is where you fearlessly walk through the shadows to find the treasure within you.

There’s a bunch of big aspects this week leading up to the Eclipse, but the trickiest one is the tense and disruptive Mars in Scorpio opposing Uranus in Taurus. It started yesterday with Mercury opposing Uranus; this brings a nervous edge to communications through Tuesday. With Mars opposing Uranus, instincts are heightened and there can be sudden breathroughs. We might have revelations or anxiety, or have a strong urge towards liberation.

Monday, December 15th: Moon in Aries makes us fiesty! Sun and Moon in Mars-ruled signs gives us a driven and ambitious start to the week. We each have a direct line to our Will and can make good progress. Avoid headstrong, risky behavior, or engaging in power plays with others. Watch out for taking on more than you can handle.

Sun in Scorpio squares Jupiter in Aquarius: Look out for over-confidence and arrogance. We each need to do some boundary-setting between our emotions and the needs of our friends. Grab opportunities today and try not to overindulge in anything (Jupiter).

Tuesday, December 16th: Moon in Aries is void-of-course at 7:51am, then void ALL DAY until 6:18pm Pacific when she enters Taurus. No negotiating or risk taking today! Instead, work on your personal goals and health. Tests might come up around your identity and who you are becoming. Best to go slow and stay present with yourself so you can respond properly in the moment. Each of us has a new way of being, and a new life manifesting.

Wednesday, December 17th: Moon in Taurus. Mars in Scorpio opposes Uranus in Taurus, asking us to reconcile our passions with our resources – in a way that liberates us. Moon trines Venus, accentuating the earthy, sensual, Taurus vibe, and moves on to conjunct Uranus. We are in the orb of the Full Moon tomorrow night. Any activity that awakens the five senses is highlighted. It’s a sensual full moon. Very passionate night.

Thursday, December 18th: Full Moon and ECLIPSE at 11:00pm Pacific in Taurus makes a couple of tense aspects today with Mercury and Jupiter. Mercury in Scorpio also trines Neptune in Pisces in the morning, which brings our minds and instincts into a wonderful, watery harmony. Good aspect for creativity and deep connections with others. The Full Moon brings love, beauty, passion, commitment, nature, animals, and the Divine Feminine. Avoid power struggles, control issues and obsession. Pushiness and bullying will get you nowhere. Listen to others, respect their wishes and look to the common good. Taurus wants us all to be healthy and secure.

Friday, December 19th: Moon in Gemini. We are in still in the the orb of the Full Moon, but today we are socializing and talking endlessly about it. Mind the details of your life. Venus trines Uranus in the middle of the night, bringing sudden, (hopefully positive) developments to relationships. The Moon in Gemini will help us communicate openly about our feelings.

Saturday, December 20th: Moon in Gemini continues yesterday’s conversations. Today we have Mercury in Scorpio squaring Jupiter in Aquarius, which brings a serious tone to the day. We set boundaries with friends or groups through our thinking and communications. We can find real meaning in our relationships, because Mercury in Scorpio favors deep understanding between people.

Sunday, December 21st: Moon void-of-course in Gemini all day, entering Cancer at 7:30pm Pacific. Sun into SAGITTARIUS at 6:30pm. We enter a new energy field in the fire sign of the Centaur. Take stock and think about setting some goals. Sagittarius is the sign of the Archer, and he likes to aim at a target. Where will you focus your energies for the coming Winter?
