It’s about personal truths and realities right now. This week the Moon is waxing (growing bigger) as the Sun moves towards the last degrees of Cancer. We had a New Moon in Cancer last Friday, which is the Moon’s natural home, and one of the most personal signs of the zodiac. Cancer symbolizes our deep, emotional, inner worlds – the parts we don’t let everyone see – along with our homes and security. The focus is on our personal circumstances, emotional needs and embracing our true feelings. The sign of Cancer is created from the primordial waters that gestate and nurture new life, and healing the inner child is paramount.

The New Moon last Friday is really powerful BECAUSE it’s so personal. This is our roots, where we come from, our relationships with our mothers, our genes, DNA, psychological traumas, etc. It’s our annual chance to start anew with healing ourselves and refreshing the foundation of our lives BASED on this self healing. When we do this healing, we’re able to let more love and friendship into our lives. More reality. We become happier and deeply fulfilled. It’s a really big deal. Also, look at where you’ve taken on the attitudes and opinions of people around you – sometimes without being aware of where the feelings are coming from.

Mars and Venus are in exact conjunction this week at 20 Leo. Although it’s exact on Tuesday, it’s continuing for the whole month of July. This symbolizes heart-centered harmony between the sexes, since both of these planets are fairly happy in Leo. Here is the sabian symbol for 20° Leo:

The Zuni indians perform a ritual to the Sun ~ Man returning to nature and glorifying in the Sun, after the long crisis of civilized living in artificial cities. The dried up intellectual returns to nature. After having ruthlessly destroyed the native indigenous peoples, we come to them as examples of peaceful and harmonious group living.”
This is a return to the glorification of NATURAL ENERGIES! And we are celebrating. We are consciously linking ourselves to the source of all life here on Earth.

And we still have the “Big One” of 2021 – Saturn in Aquarius square to Uranus in Taurus. It’s major, disruptive, and if you have ANYTHING near 12 Aquarius, Taurus, Leo or Scorpio, it’s getting a major face lift this year. There are three exact squares between these two in 2021, and each one of them signifies the struggle between the “old guard”, and a new way of doing things. A new world is in the process of being born. This year is a turning point for society’s culture clock. The radical, young, tech oriented, diverse and progressive elements in our society are becoming our new leaders. Anyone holding onto outdated ways of doing things is in for a BIG shake up.

Monday, July 12th: Moon void-of-course in Leo ALL DAY!! Do what you gotta do, but avoid signing anything or taking risks. Follow plans you’ve already agreed to during this incredibly long void period. The good news is there are lovely aspects today – the biggest being Mercury trine Jupiter. Mercury went into Cancer yesterday, and immediately trined Jupiter in Pisces, which greatly expands our imaginations and creativity. It will be in play for the next few days. Writers and creative people can access divine inspiration this week.

Tuesday, July 13th: Virgo Moon brings order, health and discipline; watch out for self criticism or self doubt. The Moon makes a lovely sextile to Mercury in the pre-dawn hours, uniting our minds and emotions. At 6:33am Pacific, Mars and Venus make a powerful conjunction at 18 Leo, uniting hearts, ambitions and lovers! The yin and the yang, masculine and feminine, coming together and uniting.

Wednesday, July 14th: Moon in Virgo trines Uranus, and opposes Neptune. Watch for surprises or sudden events – especially involving health, work or possessions. Be open to trying new approaches to health or work related issues.

Thursday, July 15th: Moon in Libra trines Pluto and squares Mercury later on, but the most powerful energy occurs in the middle of the night when the Sun trines Neptune. This is another window to the divine, giving us an easy connection. Send up some prayers to your Higher Power to help clarify and clear your forward path.

Friday, July 16th: Moon in Libra, and Venus semi-sextile to Neptune in the middle of the night. There will be messages in your dreams. This is the perfect date night, and with Venus in Leo, it’s a great opportunity to see top performances. Art, women, creativity, parties, love – all are enhanced today.

Saturday, July 17th: Moon in Libra, then into Scorpio at 11:38am Pacific. The Moon makes five different aspects before dawn, then a trine with Jupiter at 1:23pm Pacific! It’s a busy day, there will be lots of news and socializing. Then around 3:45pm Pacific, we have the powerful Sun opposing Pluto. This happens once a year, and will be with us for the next few days. Our ambitions will be tested and reevaluated to see if they can stand the stresses of our world.

Sunday, July 18th: Moon in Scorpio! Visit the ocean, or hang out by a pool. The Scorpio Moon brings out the truth, but also makes people sensitive, so avoid social complications. With the Moon in Scorpio it’s a witchy day. Remember, if a boundary needs to be set, today is the day.

Week of July 5th: New Moon in Cancer

We begin this week with a balsamic, fallow Moon, building towards a New Moon at 18 Cancer on Friday. The eclipses are behind us, and it’s interesting to notice where our lives and attitudes have changed over the last month. Leading up to this New Moon on Friday, we have an opportunity to release things that don’t fit into our new, emotional way of being (i.e. Sun in Cancer).

We just came through some volatile aspects last weekend. There was a fixed T-square: Mars in Leo and Saturn in Aquarius opposing each other, and Uranus in Taurus in the middle squaring both. It brought anger, struggles with authority, ego deflation, sudden surprises and urgent need for change. These influences will be with us for several more days. If we’ve been stuck in power struggles with someone, it is plainly obvious this week.

You can use this energy by giving positive attention to sexuality and ambition. Uranus, forming the square, wants you to focus on the future. How can you make your path easier? Where can you integrate new technology into your life to better support and grow your aspirations?

Underneath everything, we have the retrogrades of Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto. That’s a lot of backwards motion. Perhaps you feel no progress is being made these days. If you feel stuck, lost in life, that you’ve been backsliding, things aren’t moving fast enough, or just irrational fears, it could all be exacerbated by these retrogrades. Saturn and Pluto can bring up helplessness, karma, issues with time, sacrifice and depletion; but their retrogrades bring long term stability. You just have to stay in the present and go with the flow.

Monday, July 5th: Moon void-of-course in Taurus at 10am Pacific, then into Gemini at 6:24pm. It’s an unstable way to start the week. Anything can come up during a void moon, and this is a longish one. Focus on matters at hand. Sun sextile Uranus is exact and brings yearning for freedom, independence and new perspective. Let yourself be wild and free. Moon square Jupiter in the evening could bring some tensions between our mind and spirit.

Tuesday, July 6th: Moon in Gemini trines Saturn today, bringing a serious tone to communications. Mercury squares Neptune in the middle of the night, so try and remember your dreams. When we wake up, this square brings confusion to decisions and communications, so be patient, ask questions, listen, and be know everyone else is in the same boat. Capturing your imagination in your work may produce wonderful results.
Also Tuesday, Venus opposition Saturn occurs at 7:36pm Pacific, and can bring a chill to relationships, or a need for personal time. Learn more about your craft; study and practice can bring beautiful results. Perhaps a mentor might teach you something wonderful. But it’s easy to give in to pessimism with this aspect, and miss the potential. Some may feel lonely or dubious about relationships, but it’s wise to avoid big decisions until the weather is more favorable.

Wednesday, July 7th: Moon in Gemini sextiles Mars and squares Neptune in the evening, bringing up echoes from yesterday. The Moon conjuncts the North Node today, so watch for flashes of the future. The Moon is in it’s balsamic phase, preparing for the New Moon coming Friday… Venus trine Chiron today brings lovely opportunities for healing to relationships, or healing through women and art.

Thursday, July 8th: Moon in Cancer makes a whole slew of aspects. Planetary energies are unified in a supportive way for tomorrow’s New Moon. Venus square Uranus is exact today, meaning sudden, unexpected events can impact relationships. It can be a positive or negative influence, just whatever is needed for growth. After so much restriction the urge for adventure, luxury, exciting pleasures, can be strong.

Friday, July 9th: New Moon in Cancer at 6:17pm Pacific. The tarot card for today is the Ace of Cups; we are emotionally reborn. Visit a pool, lake, river, or ocean. The imagination can be stronger than usual with this new moon. Creativity is heightened, and artists and musicians have breakthroughs. Time to start new projects! With the sensitive Cancer Moon, choose your words wisely. Moon in Cancer tends to emphasize home life and family, so enjoy those who move with you through life, including your pets. Also, this is a great date night, just don’t overshare.

Saturday, July 10th: Moon is void-of-course in Cancer all day, until entering Leo at 5:21pm. Walk carefully around people’s feelings. A void Moon in Cancer can be emotionally tricky, so practice restraint. This is a day of healing, rest, reflection and food. Also today, Venus squares Chiron in Aries, which can give creative people firey inspiration.

Sunday, July 11th: Moon in Leo opposes Saturn and squares Uranus, so we are emotionally integrating the events of last week. Also, Mercury enters uncertain, insecure and emotional Cancer for the next three weeks, bringing the need for understanding and meaning to our conversations. The Messenger doesn’t like being bogged down in emotions, so use Mercury in Cancer to access the power of imagination.

*When sperm whales need a nap, they take a deep breath, dive down about 45 feet and arrange themselves into perfectly-level, vertical patterns. They sleep sound and still for up to two hours at a time between breaths, in pods of 5 or 6 whales, presumably for protection. No one knew whales slept vertically until a 2008 study documented the behavior. And no one captured really good photography of it in the wild until 2017. French photographer Stephane Granzotto was documenting sperm whales in the Mediterranean for his book on the creatures when he came across these sleeping whales.

Here comes official Summer! Next Sunday, June 20th, the Sun enters Cancer heralding the Summer Solstice. This day is the maximum influence of the Sun, the longest day of the year, and the high point of Light for all of 2021. After this event, the days grow shorter and we move towards Fall.

This week the Moon is waxing (growing bigger) each day and the Sun moves through the last degrees of Gemini. We had a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Gemini last Thursday, which brought up our need to organize our thoughts, talk, write, play, socialize and travel. In the last half of June, the focus turns to our homes, personal circumstances, emotional needs and family vacations.

The big aspect this week is tomorrow – Saturn in Aquarius square to Uranus in Taurus. This is a major, disruptive aspect, both for society at large AND for our personal lives. It’s unpredictable, and often brings revolution. It’s the second exact square of three in 2021, and signifies the struggle between the “old guard”, and a new way of doing things. Like it or not, outdated institutions and methods are being released into the past, and a new world is in the process of being born. This year is a turning point for society’s culture clock. The radical, young, tech oriented, diverse and progressive elements in our society are becoming our new leaders. Anyone holding onto outdated ways of doing things is in for a BIG shake up.

Jupiter (optimism, luck, wealth) hangs over this week. The planet of Luck is stopped in the sky and turns retrograde next Sunday the 23rd. Throwing caution to the winds, and following every fancy and overindulgence can look particularly tempting right now. I say, if you want to go for it. It will effect each of us differently, depending on where Jupiter is sitting in your specific chart. If you want a short reading on it, you can book me here. Jupiter expands everything it touches, an brings up themes of faith, travel, education, and foreign lands. Instead of overindulgence, let your inspirations guide you.

Monday, June 14th: Moon in Leo, and Saturn square Uranus. Moon in Leo makes us expressive, playful and creative, but the square between Saturn and Uranus is a big, tense event, and it will last for a couple of weeks. 2021 turns the page and ushers in a new world. In your personal life, what old ways are you releasing, and who are you becoming in this new paradigm?

Tuesday, June 15th: Moon in Leo, going void around 10:30am, then into Virgo at 8:00pm Pacific. During the long void period, follow plans that have already been agreed upon. Virgo Moon brings the focus to order, health and discipline. Remember, moderation is the key! Watch out for self criticism or self doubt, and just do what you can within reason.

Wednesday, June 16th: Moon in Virgo opposes Jupiter and trines Uranus. Watch for surprises in the evening! The opposition with Jupiter means there’s some emotional stuff to figure out before you’re ready to move forward with a project or person. In general, there’s no need to force your views about what’s right or how to behave. Be gentle with yourself, your body, and others.

Thursday, June 17th: Moon in Virgo makes five different aspects today, so it’s about riding the waves. I focus on creativity during these times, regrouping and self nurturing. Square to Mercury, opposition to Neptune and trine to Pluto means to practice being in the present moment, and saying what you really mean.

Friday, June 18th: Moon in Libra on a Friday? Talk about the perfect date night, this is it! If you’re vaccinated, go out and mix with like-minded people. Art, women, creativity, parties, love – all are enhanced today. I think Venus in Cancer is suitable for planetary magick too, so engage in Venus rituals today.

Saturday, June 19th: Moon in Libra makes another flurry of aspects; trines Saturn and Mercury and squares Venus. The focus on balance continues, but tension between the Moon and Venus can dampen the sexy mood. This square between our emotions and relationships can bring insecurity, and an inability to sort out the truth. Just wait until things become more clear. Try not to create stories in your head about your relationships, instead rely on facts.

Sunday, June 20th: Moon in Scorpio, Jupiter retrograde (8:06am) and Sun into Cancer at 8:32pm Pacific. SUMMER SOLSTICE. With the Moon in Scorpio it’s a witchy day. Celebrate the solstice with friends and loved ones, and nourish deep connections. If a boundary needs to be set, today is the day. Moon has some lovely trines with the Sun and Jupiter today. HAVE FUN!!!

Week of June 7th: New Moon in Gemini

Sun at 17 Gemini
Mercury RETROGRADE at 23 Gemini
Venus at 4 Cancer (home, roots, family)
Mars at 26 Cancer (into Leo Friday)
Jupiter at 1 Pisces (strong)
Saturn RETROGRADE at 13 Aquarius (rulership)

Pluto RETROGRADE at 26 Capricorn

We begin this week with a balsamic, fallow Moon, building towards a New Moon Eclipse at 19 Gemini on Thursday. Leading up to this Moon, we have an opportunity to release things that no longer fit into our new way of being. We are in eclipse season, which occurs every six months in a specific sign. It always carries a theme, and since these eclipses are on the Gemini-Sagittarius axis this year, the theme is to let go of old ways of being in order to make way for the fresh and new. These eclipses give us a reality check, and a chance to take personal inventory. They show the neglected, shadow sides of our lives, and point us towards what needs attention.

This weekend we had a cardinal T-square which will be with us for several more days. Pluto in Capricorn opposed Mars in Cancer, and the Aries Moon squared the opposition. This aspect can raise passions and bring up discussions with loved ones about feelings, hopes and fears. If we’re stuck in power struggles with someone, it will become plainly obvious this week.

The undercurrents are the retrogrades of Saturn and Pluto, and the upcoming square of Saturn and Uranus next week. This could add to the tensions between Pluto and Mars, and highlight feelings of no progress. If you’ve been feeling lost in the face of world events, or that you’ve been backsliding, things aren’t moving fast enough, or just irrational fears, it could all be exacerbated by these retrogrades. Saturn and Pluto can bring up helplessness, karma, issues with time, sacrifice and depletion, but it’s always darkest before a new dawn, and we will be receiving a grand, new beginning this week. Sagittarius tells us to have faith.

Monday, June 7th: Moon in Taurus, and Moon conjuncts Uranus. The Moon is exalted here, and it’s also a Monday, so it’s the PERFECT day for Moon Magick. If you want to bring in more creativity or psychic attunement, today is the day for a ritual. Moon bumping into Uranus can bring out your genius as well. Taurus is the sign of sensuality, luxury, indulgence. It’s also a good day for working with animals.

Tuesday, June 8th: Moon into Gemini at 11:47am Pacific. Moon trines Pluto today, along with some lovely sextiles. The Moon is in it’s balsamic phase, preparing for the New Moon coming… Moon square Jupiter in the evening could bring some tensions between our mind and spirit.

Wednesday, June 9th: Moon in Gemini trines Saturn in the afternoon which can bring heavy conversations, based in reality. We have no problem working hard on projects that require mental effort. We are in the sphere of the New Moon in Gemini occurring tomorrow too. The Moon conjuncts the North Node today, so watch for flashes of the future.

Thursday, June 10th: New Moon Solar Eclipse in Gemini in the pre-dawn hours – 3:53am Pacific. There’s a whole slew of aspects too; planetary energies are unified in a lovely, supportive way for this New Moon. The Sun also conjuncts Mercury, which is great for writers and poets. We are drawn to sociability, sharing and TALKING.

Friday, June 11th: Moon Cancer and Mars into Leo! Yay! Mars loves being in a fire sign, and he activates the heart while in Leo. After wandering through uncertain, insecure and emotional Cancer, Mars (and men in general) will be feeling feisty and confident. Support the performing arts.

Saturday, June 12th: Moon in Cancer conjuncts Venus, giving the start of the day a loving, artistic flavor. The Moon interacts with Saturn later on though, and emotions can get heavier. This is a day of healing, rest, reflection and food. With the sensitive Cancer Moon, choose your words wisely. Also today, Venus squares Chiron in Aries, which can give creative people firey inspiration.

Sunday, June 13th: Moon into Leo runs straight into Mars, and suddenly everyone has an opinion or wants to rule the roost. Posturing aside, Venus and the Moon make several lovely aspects with Neptune, Uranus and Saturn, bringing more artistic energy to the day. Channel frustrations into art.

Dark of the Moon begins on Wednesday this week, so just take it easy and rest. This is a week of wrapping things up and finishing projects, so we can prepare for the rebirth of the New Moon. The Moon is waning until Thursday, June 10th, when we have a New Moon in Gemini.

The Sun in Gemini brings our attention to our social circle, Mars in Cancer directs our attention to our homes and personal world, and Venus moving into Cancer delights in the home, family, and nostagia. Since it’s a waning Moon this week, your energies are best used for purging old belongings, wrapping up loose ends, paying off debts and clearing the clutter. Update your life and make room for the wonderful energies flowing towards you.

Mercury, Gemini’s ruler, just went retrograde on Saturday. For the next three weeks we will go back over already covered ground. We are reveiwing our thinking, close relationships, and intellectual adventures. Along with this, we are in eclipse season. There was a Full Moon eclipse in Sagittarius last week, and next week, June 10th, brings us a New Moon solar eclipse. It’s a powerful time of change.

Monday, May 31st: Moon in Aquarius, and Mars trine Neptune in the middle of the night. This is a great combination of energies to start off the week. The Aquarian influence makes us focused, friendly, but also resolute. The Mars trine Neptune aspect stirs up our intuition and creativity, allowing us to go full tilt into self expression, and communication with higher forces.

Tuesday, June 1st: Moon in Pisces conjuncts Neptune. Another fluffy Neptune day. It’s all gut instincts today, so practice trusting them. Everything cheers up in the evening with the Moon conjunct Jupiter. Your horizons are expanded!

Wednesday, June 2nd: Moon in Pisces, and Venus into Cancer in the early morning. This combination brings out emotions, music and creativity. Embrace solitude. Take time for yourself and focus on your spiritual practice. Moon sextile Uranus in the afternoon could bring some surprises.

Thursday, June 3rd: Moon in Aries and seven mostly positive aspects, all leading up to Venus trine Jupiter at 4:33pm Pacific. This is the highlight of the week! Such a beautiful aspect. Neptune is a higher vibration of Venus, and the two combining in a lovely trine brings a positive expansion to all of our relationships, deep, spiritual connections with other people, and transformative creativity. If you want to channel the divine into your art, you will be able to mainline heaven today. Moon trine Mars today can make us industrious.

Friday, June 4th: Moon in Aries. The Moon makes two lovely sextiles today with Saturn and the Sun, bringing alignment to our work and inner drives.

Saturday, June 5th: Moon in Aries, going void-of-course at 3:47pm for the rest of the day. Watch out for headstrong behavior and avoid risk-taking. There’s tension today with three squares, and the explosive Pluto opposing Mars. Yikes. Watch out for angry people. If you’re in a disagreement with someone, try to stall until next week to resolve issues.

Sunday, June 6th: Moon in Taurus forms two lovely sextiles – one with Jupiter and one with Venus. This is a continuation of the wonderful, loving, artistic vibes of Thursday, except with the Moon in Taurus (exalted), we look for ways to tangibly manifest our inspirations from the last week. With Moon in Taurus, get out into nature.

This week the Moon is waxing (growing bigger) each day and the Sun moves through the last degrees of Taurus, entering Gemini on Thursday, May 20th.

So many great placements right now! Jupiter has moved into Pisces! The King has entered his underwater castle – the realm of dreams, inspiration, music, and spiritual connection. The luck, wealth, optimism and philanthropy of Jupiter flows easily to us for the next month or so. In June he goes retrograde back into Aquarius for the rest of the year, then permanently into Pisces for all of 2022. For now, he is SO happy in his watery kingdom.

Mercury the messenger is now in his traditional airy home of Gemini!
Business, negotiation, communication, commerce, education are all highlighted right now. Mercury also rules the occult, so we can make progress in our studies. Mercury is lightning swift right now, so if you need some clarity, now is the time to ask him for a clear mind. A very simple spell is to put your intention on a yellow candle, and burn it on Wednesday. Watch for messages and revelations, because he is talking to each of us.

Saturn (discipline, responsibility) hangs over this week. The planet of Karma is stopped in the sky and turning retrograde next Sunday the 23rd. Things could appear less stable when Saturn is retrograde, but remember it’s an illusion. Saturn represents our stability, and brings up themes around structure, time, karma, and authority. Saturn rules Aquarius, so his retrograde here brings up battles between progressive and traditional elements. Aquarius represents our need to evolve on both a collective and personal level. Focus on solidifying the foundations of your life, and then reassess your social life. It’s the perfect time to question our way of living and working.

Monday, May 17th: Moon in Leo, and the Sun trines Pluto. This is a great way to start the week. We are feeling creative, playful, and inspired. Sun trining Pluto means these two planetary heavyweights are working together for your benefit. The evolution of your soul’s growth is getting a boost this week. What direction is the Universe leading you right now? Pluto helps us progress through healing, research, regeneration, and purification. If there’s some old, toxic energy holding you back, this could be the week to release it.

Tuesday, May 18th: Moon in Leo. Venus (in Gemini) sextiles Chiron (in Aries), sending some wonderful vibes towards healing our emotional and spiritual wounds. Women in particular can bring some information and healing you might need to move past inner obstacles. There’s several planets near 11 degrees right now, which means anything in your chart around 11 degrees is getting activated this week. Contact me if you’d like more info at LizRose93@gmail.com.

Wednesday, May 19th: Moon in Leo, then into Virgo at 1:59pm. Venus trines Saturn. When the Moon is in Virgo, it’s time to get organized and get your ducks in a row. Clear the clutter. Venus trines Saturn today, bringing together the two big influences this week. Love, art and tact combine with hard work, concentration and authority. Make an effort to speak nicely and take other people’s interests into account. Venus responds well to politeness. Creative people want to work hard, and lovers want to commit. Follow the advice of women.

Thursday, May 20th: Moon in Virgo, and Sun into Gemini at 12:37pm Pacific. Yay Gemini! The building influence over the virus means some of us can safely socialize more. Gemini season is the month to talk, write, play, socialize and travel. If you have studies or writing to do, now is the time!

Friday, May 21st: Moon in Virgo, and into Libra at 6:35pm. Moon in Libra is the PERFECT time for going out and mixing with like-minded people. It’s a great date night. Sun squares Jupiter today, which can bring the resolution of tensions between our soul’s purpose and our spiritual connection. There’s some work to do to achieve balance. You need to turn a corner. With Jupiter, you generally need to avoid escapism as a way to solve problems. Watch out for spending too much, overeating, or over-confidence. Focus on people and situations that inspire you.

Saturday, May 22nd: Moon in Libra. Mercury squares Neptune in the evening. The focus on balance continues, but tension between Mercury and Neptune can make our minds foggy. This square between our minds and the psychic realm can bring confusion, and an inability to sort out the truth. Just wait until things become more clear. Try not to create stories in your head about your relationships, instead rely on facts. Our imaginations are very active today, so it’s important to avoid speculation and rumination.

Sunday, May 23rd: Moon in Libra, into Scorpio at 8pm Pacific, and Saturn stations retrograde in the middle of night. If a boundary needs to be set, today is the day. Scorpio moon is where we start drawing boundaries to emotionally protect ourselves. Moon in Scorpio squares the outer planets in Aquarius AND opposes Uranus today.

Week of May 10th: New Moon in Taurus

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 20 Taurus
Mercury at 8 Gemini (Mercury in rulership finally!! Do Magick)
Venus at 2 Gemini
Mars at 10 Cancer (Mars in detriment, no Mars Magick)
Jupiter at 29 Aquarius
Saturn at 13 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune at 22 Pisces (rulership, strong)
Pluto at 26 Capricorn
North Node at 11 Gemini

We begin this week in the sphere of the New Moon occurring Tuesday. Black Moon Lilith, the Sun, and the Moon, will all join together at 22 Taurus, bringing some witchiness to this new cycle. Black Moon Lilith is our independent streak, our demand for equality, our witchy nature, and our ability to stand alone – especially for justice. This energy blends with Taurus and our need to acquire our own resources. The urge to create and maintain a solid foundation in our lives is strong. We need to be self sufficient, so we can stand up for personal justice and advocate for ourselves. Remember that with Taurus, beauty and nature heal the soul.

Venus and Jupiter are squaring each other now, and it will continue this week. Then on Thursday (gasp) Jupiter enters PISCES!!! Yay!! This is such an excellent transit, since Jupiter LOVES being in Pisces. Pisces Sun and/or Rising people are about to have a fantastic two years. Jupiter will expand our spiritual connections, intuitiveness, artistry, creativity, and musical inclinations. On the negative side, it can also increase our desire for alcohol, drugs, shopping, TV, sugar and sex. With Jupiter these things can turn into addictions and escapism very easily, so stay moderate.

The main thing to keep in mind, is that we are in Spring. We are flowering, just as the plants around us. What is your unique offering, your unique gift, that you can share with your community? Now is the time to identify it and nurture it, as it comes into manifestation around the Summer Solstice, June 20th. We each say “I am who I am”, and come in to full self love and acceptance. This is represented by Chiron (the Wounded Healer) moving through Aries for four more years. We just ARE who we ARE, and we don’t need to edit ourselves for anyone.

Monday, May 10th: Moon in Taurus, and Moon conjuncts Uranus. Wherever Taurus falls in your chart is going to be very active today and this week. If you want a short reading on how this will effect you, go ahead and book one with me. Watch for stubborness; instead slow down like the Taurus bull and take it a step at a time. Practice patience.

Tuesday, May 11th: New Moon in Taurus at exactly noon on the West Coast. The Moon is exalted here, so we’re feeling more grounded then usual, and can make progress in relationships. Go for a walk outside and smell some roses. Taurus is the sign of sensuality, luxury, indulgence, and places where you feel at home. Indulge in feeling comfortable. Mars sextiles Uranus, which can clear the air in stagnant situations. Be careful though, people will be stubborn.

Wednesday, May 12th: Moon in Gemini meets up with Venus, the planet of Love. If you have any unresolved discussions, today is the day to clear things up. Also, Mercury trines Saturn over in Aquarius, allowing us to think clearly and discipline our minds. Writers and poets will find great inspiration with this aspect for the next several days. We have no problem working hard on projects that require mental effort.

Thursday, May 13th: Moon in Gemini, and Sun sextiles Jupiter. We are drawn to sociability, sharing and TALKING, and the Sun and Jupiter keep our focus on the big picture. The air is alive with optimism and success. And then, Jupiter enters Pisces at 3:36pm Pacific! All around great vibe today, and Magick for wealth, justice and joy is successful. Burn a blue candle.

Friday, May 14th: Moon VOC in Gemini ALL DAY, then into Cancer at 6:30pm Pacific. When the Moon is void-of-course, avoid risks or goiing outside the norm. Just focus on what’s in front of you and plans that are already agreed upon. With a Gemini void Moon, it’s a great time to practice creativity in writing or speaking.

Saturday, May 15th: Moon in Cancer and Mars semi-sextile Saturn. Perfect for working around the home, getting organized, or taking on some hard work. With the sensitive Cancer Moon, choose your words wisely.

Sunday, May 16th: Moon in Cancer. Home projects continue. Moon trine Neptune in the evening brings a desire to escape into movies, video games, OR a good book.

We are in the dark of the Moon this week, so just take it easy and rest. This is a week of wrapping things up and finishing projects, so we can prepare for the rebirth of the New Moon. The Moon is waning until Tuesday, May 11th, when we have a New Moon in Taurus.

The Sun in Taurus brings our attention to our resources, Mars in Cancer directs our attention to our homes and personal world, and Venus in Taurus delights in Spring. Since it’s a waning Moon this week, your energies are best used for purging old belongings, wrapping up loose ends, paying off debts and clearing the clutter. Update your life and make room for the wonderful energies flowing towards you.

Pluto is still stationary retrograde, asking us to review and release anything that stands in the way of our personal evolution. Saturn will be slowing down this month and going stationary retrograde on May 23rd – asking us to review the structures of our lives. With both of these planets standing still, their energies are greatly concentrated, and will impact the astrology of May. We are going over old ground.

Monday, May 3rd: Moon in Aquarius, and Mercury into Gemini! Today is intense. This is the best communication/negotiation day of the week. However, today is really about tense aspects; four squares and the Moon conjuncting Saturn. The most powerful aspect is the Sun square Saturn. Aknowledge your limits, and discipline your days to focus on your purpose. Battles with authority can happen today.

Tuesday, May 4th: Moon in Aquarius going into Pisces at 7:09pm. Moon square Venus can bring more stand offs today, but everything cheers up in the evening with the Moon conjuncting Jupiter. Your horizons are expanded! Follow your instincts and practice self love.

Wednesday, May 5th: Moon in Pisces. Embrace solitude. Moon trine Mars today can make us industrious. Use your instincts when dealing with people. Take time for yourself and focus on your spiritual practice. Moon sextile Uranus in the afternoon could bring some surprises.

Thursday, May 6th: Moon in Pisces brings out music and creativity. Venus trine Pluto brings endings AND/OR new beginnings to all of our relationships. This is a powerful aspect which brings intensity and deep connection between people, and transformative creativity.

Friday, May 7th: Moon in Aries. The Moon makes three lovely sextiles today – including Venus – which brings a friendly, creative vibe to the day. Today is a true relief after the major shifts this week. Be careful of head strong behavior and selfishness.

Saturday, May 8th: Moon in Aries and Venus into Gemini. Venus square Jupiter is exact in the early morning, enhancing sociability. A square brings challenges though, so look out for over indulgence and over spending. Pursue happiness and creative activities.

Sunday, May 9th: Moon in Aries, into Taurus at 4:36pm Pacific. The Moon, Uranus, the Sun and Venus hang out together in a delightful pile up in Taurus, as we prepare for the New Moon on Tuesday!

We begin this week with today’s New Moon at 22 Aries! We are reanimating ourselves, and hitting the reset button on our ambitions. It’s an exciting time, because each of us is seeing new options in our lives. If there is something you want to grow this year, “plant the seed” and start it NOW! We are rebirthed when the Sun is in Aries, and this week in particular, we will see some solutions to all of the problems we encountered last year. This week the Moon is waxing (growing bigger) each day and the Sun moves through the last degrees of Aries, entering Taurus next Monday, April 19th.

Also this coming week, Venus, the Sun and Mercury each square Pluto. There is an old structure in your life that is about to change or evolve; something you thought would NEVER change. Maybe it’s your job, or city, or attitude about life… it is shifting and you can feel it change this week. Venus (Love and trust) squared Pluto (evolution) today, evolving our vulnerability with other people. Maybe we have better internal boundaries, or are taking better care of our hearts.

NOTE: Pluto is currently at 26 Capricorn, but the “Pluto return” for the United States is 27 Capricorn. This means Pluto is ONE DEGREE from the exact Pluto return of the U.S. What this means is all of the twisted, toxic energy in the US is coming up to be purged – racism, political power struggles, white supremacy, sexism, faschism, wealth disparity, guns… it’s all coming to be RELEASED and healed in the next few years. The US’s exact Pluto return is next February, 2022.

Monday, April 12th: Moon into Taurus, and Ramadan begins. The week after a New Moon gives us fresh energy, and a feeling of rebirth. Watch for stubborness; instead slow down like the Taurus bull and take it a step at a time. Practice patience.

Tuesday, April 13th: Moon in Taurus. The Moon is exalted here, so we’re feeling grounded and emotionally centered today. We might be drawn to indulgence of the senses too, which is a great use of this energy. Sun sextiles Mars, which syncs up the Ego and the Drive in each of us. This is an invigorating aspect that can bring up our irritations, so stay away from arguments.

Wednesday, April 14th: Moon in Taurus, AND Venus into Taurus! Venus is the planet of Love, and in Taurus she enters her rulership. This makes the next few weeks a powerful time for self expression, love, art, nature, women and relationships. Slow way down and savor all sensations. Spend time with your lover, or go out and get one.

Thursday, April 15th: Moon in Gemini, and Sun sextiles Jupiter. We are drawn to sociability, sharing and TALKING, and the Sun and Jupiter keep our focus on the big picture. The air is alive with optimism and success.

Friday, April 16th: Moon in Gemini, and Sun squares Pluto. This aspect can take off our mask, OR bring someone else’s secret to light. There’s an element of seriousness to today’s activities. Pay attention. It’s an evolution of the Soul today, and we find there are certain directions we can’t move towards, no matter how comfortable and familiar the path.

Saturday, April 17th: Moon in Gemini, into Cancer at 1:25pm Pacific. There is a TON of aspects today – ten to be exact. There will be a LOT of energy flying around, so go slow and let things unfold. Real clarity on today’s issues won’t come for a couple of days. Mercury square Pluto is one of the bigger aspects which can bring cathartic conversations and a real clearing of the air. With the sensitive Cancer Moon, choose your words wisely.

Sunday, April 18th: Moon in Cancer, and another flurry of aspects. There’s five more – including Mercury cazimi (disappearing) into the fires of the Sun. Communications might suffer from ego wars – so watch for that. Also Mars sextile Pluto which syncs up our Drive with our current Evolution.

Week of April 5th

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 14 Aries (EXALTED. Do Sun Magick)
Mercury at 2 Aries
Venus at 17 Aries (in her detriment, no Venus Magick now)
Mars at 18 Gemini
Jupiter at 23 Aquarius
Saturn at 11 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune at 21 Pisces (rulership, strong)
Pluto at 26 Capricorn
North Node at 12 Gemini

We are in the dark of the Moon this week, so just take it easy and rest. The Moon is waning until Sunday, April 11th, when we have a New Moon in Aries.

Friends, it’s a week of germination as we prepare for the rebirth of the New Moon in Aries next Sunday. The week starts in an airy, social space with the Moon in Aquarius, and now Mercury in Aries. Mercury is amplified in Aries after spending weeks in foggy, sentimental, watery Pisces. Our minds shake off the confusion and become reborn in the sign of the Ram. Mercury is moving fast and will soon catch up to Chiron, then the Sun and Venus, who are still moving through Aries together.

It will be interesting to see what happens when the Sun, Venus and Mercury catch up with Eris in Aries and square Pluto in Capricorn. This major, two year square between Pluto (evolution) and Eris (discord) is one of the most combustible aspects happening right now. We are also moving towards Pluto stationing retrograde on April 27, which could bring up challenges leading to evolution. Keep your focus on what’s most important to you, and ignore the distractions that arise.

We now have all the personal planets – Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars – in the early signs of the zodiac: Aries, Taurus and Gemini. These are the most personal, impulsive, internal, spontaneous, self-oriented energies. It’s springtime, and the seed is just starting to sprout. We are getting in touch with our values, desires and needs so we can individuate (Aries). The impulse towards individualization is coming from Pluto, the Soul, over in Capricorn. Ask yourself: who am I, and what do I want to see happen with my life and my purpose”. Once you’ve established those answers, Uranus in Taurus will help you build new ways of becoming self sufficient.

Monday, April 5th: Moon in Aquarius. It’s an oddly relaxing day. Moon conjuncts Pluto in the middle of the night bringing a heavy, serious vibe, but Moon sextile Mercury in the afternoon makes it easier to talk about whatever is coming up.

Tuesday, April 6th: Moon in Aquarius means try a radical new approach. This is the best communication/negotiation day of the week. We examine and reassess our vision of the future, and how that ties in with the upcoming New Moon. Also, Venus sextiles Mars bringing harmony between men and women. The randiness of Spring is in full effect. Remember to be artfully tactful in all ambitious ventures. Art and music get a boost.

Wednesday, April 7th: Moon void, then into Pisces at 1:30pm Pacific. Follow your instincts and practice self love. Moon conjuncts Jupiter in the early morning which brings a wonderful, jovial vibe to the day. Emotions are lighthearted.

Thursday, April 8th: Moon in Pisces. You might need some solitude as we approach the New Moon. Take time for yourself and focus on nurturing and spiritual practice. Moon sextile Uranus is the only aspect today, and could bring some morning surprises.

Friday, April 9th: Moon in Pisces goes void-of-course at 4:48pm Pacific. Mercury conjuncts Chiron and could bring up a crisis in our communication, thinking, technology or the news. Then Mars square Neptune in the afternoon brings confusion with our ambitions or actions. Things are not what they seem, so wait for more clarity. Not a good time to follow your ego into battles or willful behavior. Avoid rumination, speculation, fantasies, drugs and alcohol.

Saturday, April 10th: Moon in Aries. Mercury sextile Saturn and Venus sextile Jupiter bring great conditions for creative people, and for having fun. Be open to inspiration, beauty and vision – as well opportunities to expand your visibility. These aspects are sociable, but practice caution with Pluto (pandemics) going retrograde in two weeks.

Sunday, April 11th: New Moon in Aries at 7:30pm Pacific. The Moon, Sun and Venus hang out together in a delightful pile up in Aries. Do some self-care since Chiron, the great healer, is also nearby. The other BIG aspect – Venus squares Pluto bringing cathartic creativity, or fears with regards to Love and self expression.
