We have a New Moon at 9 Gemini coming next Monday, May 30th, so THIS week is about finishing things. We are in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle, so rest this week, wrap stuff up, pay off debts, and clear your life of stagnant energy. The Sun has left the earthy pastures of Taurus, and is now traveling through the early degrees of Gemini, the social butterfly.

Meanwhile, Saturn has ground to a halt, preparing to turn retrograde on June 4th. Mercury retrograde has just fallen backwards into Taurus, so we are going over old ground until June 3rd when Mercury goes Direct. With Mercury retrograde in Taurus, the volatility of the stock market will continue. It’s a good time to review values and investments.

This is Gemini 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 Gemini cycle will affect you, book a short reading with me here for $45.

Monday, May 23rd: Moon in Pisces blends with the lovely Moon energy of Monday… do Magick involving emotions, art, music, and women’s issues. Have some solitude today and reflect on things. Daydreams, music and movies are always highlighted with a Pisces Moon. Eat something sweet and let yourself be creative. Sun sextiles Jupiter which lifts our mood, and Mercury retrograde sextiles Mars which activates our minds.

Tuesday, May 24th: Moon in Pisces moves into Aries at 2:39pm Pacific. Then, MARS enters his homeland of Aries at 4:17pm Pacific, which supercharges our libidos, egos and ambitions. Mars has been languishing in Pisces since mid April, so moving into Aries is a huge, positive fresh start – particularly for men. It’s further inflated by the approaching conjunction between Mars and Jupiter on Sunday. Unfortunately the conflicts in the world could also get more heated and angry. Pursue actions that require courage. Venus sextile Saturn today brings good interactions with authority figures.

Wednesday, May 25th: Moon in Aries with Saturn standing still overhead brings egos and ambitions to the forefront. Be mentally alert and avoid temperamental people. Mercury retrograde in Taurus trines Pluto too, so communicating can clear the air. There are no trivial, light conversations with this aspect. Avoid headstrong, “fuck it” kinds of attitudes. There could be control issues or power struggles with others, especially online.

Thursday, May 26th: Moon in Aries goes void at 8:20pm Pacific, so make it an early night. The Moon and Venus both square Pluto today, which means we (particularly women) have emotional work to do. Power plays and control issues abound. Focus on healing and reformation.

Friday, May 27th: Moon in Taurus, on a Friday (day of Venus) makes for a perfect date night. Venus is about to enter her home kingdom of Taurus tomorrow, so there could be sparks flying today. Her square with Pluto yesterday is still in effect too, so prepare for healing, reconciliation with the past and soul retrieval.

Saturday, May 28th: Venus returns home to the sign of Taurus in the early morning. The Goddess of Love is confident and sure-footed in the sign of the Bull, and the next few weeks are great for building up your resources, tending animals, creating art, walking in nature, and hopefully stabilizing the world’s financial markets. Mars and Venus are now both in their rulerships and able to express themselves fully. Real joy and progress can be found in relationships over the next few weeks. Get outside and enjoy nature. Also, make a conscious effort to remember your dreams tonight, there will be messages.

Sunday, May 29th: Mars conjunct Jupiter at 3:31am Pacific, and Moon enters Gemini at 10:23am. Whatever you dreamed about last night has importance so write it down. This aspect brings out the hero in each of us since we are driven towards personal truth. Break through procrastination and follow your passions. We are in the realm of the New Moon in Gemini tomorrow, and our minds are gearing up for a rebirth.

It’s officially eclipse season! Prepare for shifts and revelations. We have a New Moon Eclipse at 10 Taurus this Saturday. Also, Pluto is stationing (standing still) and going retrograde on Friday until October, and this creates more intensity. Right now we are in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle. Try and let yourself rest this week, wrap stuff up, pay off debts, and clear your life of stagnant energy. The Sun has left the fires of Aries, and is now traveling through the early degrees of Taurus, the Spring Bull!

Saturday night we have a rare conjunction between Venus and Jupiter, with Neptune nearby. This aspect is one of the best for romance and love. There is a strong, Venus undercurrent to the week with this conjunction, including the Eclipse in Taurus – also ruled by Venus. You could make real breakthroughs in the areas of creativity and romance, plus an eclipse helps you find the truth in any situation.

Monday, April 25th: Moon in Pisces blends with the lovely Moon energy of Monday… good day for Magick involving emotions, art, music, and women’s issues. Have some solitude today and reflect on things. Daydreams, music and movies are always highlighted with a Pisces Moon. Eat something sweet and let yourself be creative. Moon runs into Mars today, so emotions and conversations could be volatile.

Tuesday, April 26th: Moon in Pisces encounters Venus, Jupiter and Neptune in turn today, giving this day a healing, loving, expansive vibe. Make good use of this energy! Connect with people that are important in your life, and focus on things you have control over. The Moon, Venus, Jupiter and Neptune together like this, in the loving, healing sign of Pisces, is a rare event.

Wednesday, April 27th: Moon in Aries with Pluto standing still overhead really shifts the energy from yesterday. Be mentally alert and avoid temperamental people for the rest of the week if you can. Mercury in Taurus is close to a trine with Pluto, so communicating can clear the air. Still there are no trivial, light conversations with this aspect. With Pluto standing still, and the Moon in Aries, avoid headstrong, “fuck it” kinds of attitudes. There could be control issues or power struggles with others, especially online.

Thursday, April 28th: Moon in Aries all day, this time squaring Pluto in Capricorn. More developments could appear from yesterday’s tensions and upheavals. We are in the realm of the New Moon Eclipse in Taurus, and people are cautious and stubborn right now.

Friday, April 29th: Moon in Aries goes void-of-course at 2:38pm, moving into Taurus at 5:15pm Pacific. A Taurus Moon, on a Friday (day of Venus) makes for a perfect date night, but remember this is an eclipse so anything can happen. Venus is in a fabulous position right now, being exalted in Pisces, so there could be some sparks flying today. But then of course, we have Pluto finally going retrograde at 11:38am, which can bring up hidden, toxic energies from the depths of the soul. AND, Mercury moves into Gemini! This is a wild day with many changes, so go easy on yourself.

Saturday, April 30th: New Moon solar eclipse at 10 Taurus occurs today at 1:28pm Pacific. Get outside and enjoy nature. During an eclipse, we can see issues or perspectives that are normally hidden, so take a good look around and listen for messages. Tonight there is the annual Venus conjunct Jupiter aspect, which is one of the most happy, loving and romantic aspects of all! Enjoy yourself.

Sunday, May 1st: BELTANE. Moon in Taurus continues developments from yesterday’s eclipse. Also, the Moon conjuncts Uranus which can spark sudden, unexpected tensions and events. With Uranus in Taurus being activated, try new approaches to earthly matters.

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.

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 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.

December 6th was Krampusnacht! Yay! I hope to go to Austria someday and see it in person…

Last Friday night we started a brand new path in our lives. We had a New Moon Eclipse in Sagittarius, bringing up issues of expansion, inner truth, wisdom, justice, adventure and luck. This eclipse will continue to unfold this week. It sets the tone for this whole month’s lunar cycle. Look to where you want to rebirth yourself, and put all of your focus there.

This week, Mercury is hiding behind the Sun, as they continue their travels through Sagittarius. This can bring extremes to our thinking – either we think too much and over analyze, or we don’t think at all. Try to find a happy medium. The big aspect this week is Venus conjuncting Pluto at 24 degrees Capricorn. If you have any planets at 24 Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn, they will be exponentionally activated this week. This conjunction inspires deep evolution in our relationships, romances, and artistic endeavors, AND it will be continuing until MARCH!! Could bring obsessiveness, catharsis, transformation and healing.

Monday, December 6th: Moon in Capricorn makes five aspects today including a trine with Uranus in Taurus, and conjunctions with Venus and Pluto. Watch for signs today about the major relationship shifts coming in the next few months. Authority figures are in charge today, and power plays or control issues could come up. Ground yourself through working hard, especially on things you’ve been avoiding. Could be an intense evening.

Tuesday, December 7th: Moon in Aquarius. Do things today that help you feel grounded. Mercury in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces in the early morning. This aspect makes our minds foggy, and makes the facts of any situation hard to grasp. Things will be clearer in the next couple of days, so postpone important decisions or conversations. Lots of electricity and ideas in the air.

Wednesday, December 8th: Moon in Aquarius. Mars squares Jupiter in the middle of the night, which means we need to find an agreement between our drives and our ideals. When we bring them into alignment, we turn a corner. This is a revolutionary day, and there could many changes and developments. Slow down and take everything one step at a time, and step carefully around people’s egos. Also, Aquarius means to let your creative genius out to play, and to connect with friends and groups of folks.

Thursday, December 9th: Moon in Pisces makes a lovely conjunction with Jupiter in the middle of the night. Pisces means “go with the flow”. Today is good for listening to lots of music, taking a boat ride, and using your senses. There’s also a Moon square Mars in the early morning which can bring underlying tensions to the surface. With the Mercury hidden in the fires of the Sun, it can be difficult to talk your way through issues. Use your intuition.

Friday, December 10th: Moon in Pisces enters her 2nd quarter. If an issue comes up, go with your gut instincts. Excellent day for psychic impressions, imagination, watery activities, or being wildly creative. Swim around with your intuitions and ideas. The watery, musical, loving vibe is enhanced by the Moon’s conjunction with Neptune in the early afternoon.

Saturday, December 11th: Moon goes void-of-course in Pisces at 11:20am, then into Aries at 1:46pm Pacific. Today is the BIG conjunction between Venus and Pluto at 24 Capricorn! With this aspect, and the Moon entering Aries, watch for tempers flaring. Avoid ego stand offs. We are being called to evolve and regenerate our relationships, so practice giving, receiving and sharing. Implement new ideas and approaches.

Sunday, December 12th: Moon in Aries gives us fresh energy and perspective. The Sun squares Neptune in the middle of the night which can bring confusion to our day. The best use of this energy is to focus on creativity and soul expression. Forget your worries and have some FUN!!

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, November 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, November 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, November 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, November 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, November 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, November 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, November 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?

We are transforming… we are BECOMING.We saw some HUGE shifts last week with the New Moon in Scorpio opposing Uranus in Taurus and squaring Saturn in Aquarius. That’s an amazing configuration, and it sets the tone for this whole month’s lunar cycle. It brings a situation into our lives that’s painful. We have to face it; just know it’s important, and it will lead to a major rebirth. On top of that, Venus has moved from the fires of Sagittarius to the sullen, hard energy of Capricorn. She’s not too happy there, so be gentle with women friends for the next few weeks. Mercury has moved from airy Libra to the intensity of Scorpio. All of these changes mean things could feel much heavier these days. Look to where you want to rebirth yourself, and put all of your focus there.

Our consciousness is following the path of the Sun through Scorpio this month. This is a complex sign. Scorpio is the sign of death, and forces beyond our control. It’s synonymous with the 8th House, which represents healing, alchemical transformation, secrets, other people, taxes, credit, banks, sex, and the occult. Scorpio wants to join deeply with what it relates to, in order to become more powerful. Scorpio is the sign of power. Merging together and uniting our resources is the way to achieve power, and we are transformed through this merging.

Monday, November 8th: Moon in Capricorn trines Uranus in Taurus early in the afternoon. Moon is in her detriment here, so this could be a cold, pessimistic, hard way to start the week. Authority figures rule the day, so don’t seek concessions or try and negotiate anything. Mercury in Scorpio makes negotiations difficult anyway for the next few weeks. This placement can raise resentments and secrets from under the surface, and people can be power hungry. Avoid social complications and focus on the goal.

Tuesday, November 9th: Moon is void-of-course in Capricorn all day, entering Aquarius at 7:03pm Pacific. Do things today that help you feel grounded. Moon conjuncts Pluto in the morning, adding to potential power struggles. Ground yourself through working hard, especially on things you’ve been avoiding. Issues could arise around control, truth, and ambitions, as well as challenges with business. Lots of electricity and wild ideas in the air.

Wednesday, November 10th: Moon in Aquarius makes a bunch of squares today, but there’s a few other HUGE aspects. This is a revolutionary day, and there could many changes and developments. Mercury and Mars are conjunct in Scorpio, which means our minds and actions are united, and we feel efficient today. Then the duo make an exact square with Saturn in Aquarius, which can test our resolve. Mars square Saturn in particular can bring up a lot of tensions. Slow down and take everything one step at a time, and step carefully around people’s egos.

Thursday, November 11th: Moon void-of-course in Aquarius at 11:52am, and stays void for the rest of the day! Follow already laid plans and avoid risks. If you can, focus on what your mind tells you rather than your heart. Embrace reality. Also, let your creative genius out to play today. Good for connecting with friends and groups of folks.

Friday, November 12th: Moon in Pisces, so go with the flow. Sun in Scorpio makes a fabulous trine to Neptune in Pisces in the morning. Just an excellent day, full of good feeling, emotional warmth and imagination. Excellent day to read philosophy, or spend your energy on being wildly romantic or creative. Swim around with your intuitions and ideas.

Saturday, November 13th: Moon in Pisces makes some lovely, friendly aspects today. The watery, musical, loving vibe is enhanced by the Moon’s conjunction with Neptune in the early afternoon. Excellent day for creativity and romance. Use your imagination and instincts. Mercury in Scorpio opposes Uranus in Taurus.

Sunday, November 14th: Moon in Aries gives us a fresh energy and perspective. No real aspects today, just do something fun.
