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.

We’re having a new beginning, brought about by last Wednesday’s New Moon in Libra. Last week there were several conjunctions with Mercury and Mars, along with Pluto and Saturn stationing Direct, which made this New Moon INTENSE. Did you have a weird, heavy week with lots of odd developments coming out of nowhere? You’re not alone! When Saturn and Pluto change direction, the foundations of our lives, and their stability, become very real.

What’s happening is we’ve had six planets retrograde ALL Summer. That’s a lot. We’ve been “redoing, restructuring, reflecting” for months, but this is all turning around THIS WEEK. It’s bound to bring up a lot of stuff, and we might feel quite overwhelmed.

Patience and discipline rule the week ahead. Saturn and Pluto are traditionally “malefics”, meaning their energies can be dark, and can bring up issues that require thoughtful action or hard work. This coming week, Jupiter and Mercury also become stationary, so we have an odd week of four planets standing still at once. This can bring heaviness and intensity, so take everything a day at a time.

Focus your attention on the “seeds you wish to grow”. What you focus on, and where you put your energy, is what is going to manifest. Right now, with the Sun in Libra, we are focused on sharing, and intimacy. Libra sets the stage for Scorpio’s deep soul connection. We are evolving through relationship.

Monday, October 11th: Moon into Capricorn at 11:15am is underlined by Saturn stationing Direct at 6 Aquarius yesterday. The mood is heavy now, and most people are still recovering from the powerful, unsettling New Moon last Wednesday. Saturn and Capricorn force us to deal with the reality of our lives. The good news, is that through hard work and mature decisions most of us can make better lives for ourselves. Today is a day to work hard.

Tuesday, October 12th: Moon in Capricorn reaches it’s 2nd quarter, and makes three squares to Mercury, Mars and the Sun respectively. This could be a tough day of holding back emotions and handling other things instead. Try not to argue, just let authority figures have their way today; it will benefit you down the road. With so many squares, there’s work to do to make your relationships and ambitions match up.

Wednesday, October 13th: Moon void, then into Aquarius at 1:47pm Pacific. The Moon is uncomfortable with unemotional Aquarius, so it’s best to be friendly and leave it at that. No deep discussions today. Venus sextile Saturn occurs around 7:30pm which is harmonious. You might need some reassurance from your partner, or an action showing committment. For artists, writers, musicians and painters, this is the time to get to work. It’s a great aspect for “paring things down” and getting your point across.

Thursday, October 14th: Moon in Aquarius makes some nice early morning aspects, setting the day off on a good note. It’s a peaceful day. Aquarius Moon is generally good for negotiation, but with Mercury stationing right now, I would wait until next week. Have fun and explore your genius.

Friday, October 15th: Moon in Aquarius trines Mars in Libra at 1am, which can bring up powerful dreams. The Moon will be void-of-course ALL DAY until 7:22pm Pacific. Don’t do anything stupid or risky. The good news, is the Sun in Libra trines Jupiter in Aquarius before dawn, which lends an optimistic, pleasant vibe to the day. Moon in Pisces makes for a romantic evening. Let your imagination lead you.

Saturday, October 16th: Moon in Pisces brings creativity with fruitful results, while Mercury and Jupiter have both ground to a halt, preparing to go Direct on Monday! Communications and attitudes could get wonky this weekend, so take it all with a grain of salt. We are psychically open right now, so be around trustworthy and authentic people. Let your instincts speak; be around water if possible. Sit at the beach and dream.

Sunday, October 17th: Moon in Pisces goes void at 4:24pm Pacific for the rest of the evening. There’s a few benign, friendly aspects today, but the Sun squares newly Direct Pluto right before dawn. Our plans need more thoughtfulness and work. You can do it. There’s something each of us will have to release in order to progress – it could be an attitude, concept, person, place or thing.

Astrological week

Autumn has arrived, the veil between the worlds is getting thinner, and the darkness approaches. We have a transformative week before us. We are currently in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle, preparing for the New Moon in Libra on Wednesday. Lots of old feelings and issues could be coming up, so we can release them. Rest and give yourself time to reflect on how you’d like the upcoming Moon cycle to go. If you’d like a personal reading on how this Libra cycle will effect you, you can book a short reading with me here for $45.

Venus at 11 Scorpio (detriment, no Venus magick right now)
Mars at 3 Libra
Jupiter RETROGRADE at 23 Aquarius
Saturn RETROGRADE at 7 Aquarius (rulership)

We started on Monday with a Full Moon at 28 Pisces, rising as a beautiful harvest moon around 7:30pm Pacific. The energies of this Full Moon will unfold over the next several days. Pisces is peak experiences with our spirituality, right brain, psychic abilities, healing, endings, and the cosmic. Overcome victim consciousness; you are not a victim of anyone or anything. Since this Full Moon takes place at the very last degree of Pisces, we are REALLY wrapping something up – something is ending and something is about to start.

The Sun moves through the last degrees of Virgo, then enters Libra on Wednesday at 12:21pm, heralding the Fall Equinox! It is equal day and equal night – a time of finding balance in our lives. Libra is justice, coexistence, law, liberty, equality, and fraternity. With the Full Moon and the Equinox happening together, this is a powerful week of transition.

Monday, September 20th: Full Moon in Pisces at 4:55pm Pacific, goes void-of-course, then enters Aries at 8:13pm. Have some solitude today and reflect on things. Daydreams, music and movies are always highlighted with a Pisces Moon. Have fun, eat something sweet, and let yourself be creative. Also today we have Mercury in Libra trine Jupiter in Aquarius which greatly enhances communication, writing, luck and prospects. Grab any oportunities that arise today.

Tuesday, September 21st: Moon in Aries has us feeling frisky and charging full speed ahead. The Moon here on a Tuesday (Day of Mars) is auspicious, but unfortunately Mars itself is in it’s detriment (hard place) in Libra. The warrior doesn’t like having to sit in Libra’s tea parties and design committee meetings. Channel all that energy into things that feel like an easy win, that will boost your self esteem.

Wednesday, September 22nd: FALL EQUINOX. Sun enters LIBRA at 12:21pm Pacific time. Equal day equal night. Mercury squares Pluto at dawn, bring an edge to communications today. There are no trivial, light conversations with this aspect. Because of the square, and the Moon still in Aries, avoid headstong, “fuck it” kinds of attitudes. There could be control issues or power struggles with others, especially online. Moon in Aries goes void at 7:05pm. Watch for a huge Moon tonight.

Thursday, September 23rd: Moon in Taurus is inconjunct with the Sun and Mars, which can bring up health related issues. Venus in Scorpio opposes Uranus in Taurus in the predawn hours, which can bring an element of unpredictability to our day. The Moon squares Saturn in Aquarius too, which can bring a cold, pessimistic mood. This could be a rough day, so avoid risks and important conversations. Be aware that people are cautious and stubborn during a Taurus Moon.

Friday, September 24th: Moon in Taurus on a Friday (day of Venus) makes for a perfect date night, however Venus magick is not advised as the planet is in her detriment (not happy) in Scorpio. Also, the Moon conjuncts Uranus and opposes Venus today, which can spark sudden, unexpected tensions and events. Oppositions, especially between Taurus and Scorpio, can make for steamy connections though too. With Uranus in Taurus being activated, try new approaches to earthly matters.

Saturday, September 25th: Moon is void-of-course in Taurus ALL DAY, until she enters Gemini at 5:36pm. That’s a LONG void period! Follow plans that have been previously agreed upon, OR stay home and clean your house. At 2:50pm, Mars in Libra makes a lovely trine with Saturn in Aquarius, which gives us lots of energy, drive, ambition and focus.

Sunday, September 26th: Moon in Gemini has three lovely trines with the Sun in Libra, Saturn in Aquarius, and Mars in Libra. That’s a whole lot of Air happening today, which means we can explore our truths, understand each other, and climb our personal mountains. Starhawk says mountain tops symbolize the element Air, so go climbing today.

Week of September 13th

This week, we are building up to the Full Moon at 29 Pisces, which will happen next Monday, September 20th. This is the last week we have with the Sun in Virgo. The Sun moves through the last degrees of Virgo, and into Libra next Wednesday, Sept. 22nd. This will be the Fall Equinox – equal day and equal night – the great balance. More on that next Sunday.

This is a quiet week astrologically, but we are moving towards Mercury going retrograde on September 26th, and the intensity of the Saturn and Pluto stations of early October. This could bring up more issues with the pandemic – perhaps another surge. Saturn and Pluto were the planets that began the pandemic in January 2020. When they change direction, the foundations of our lives, and their stability, become apparent.

Monday, September 13th: Moon in Sagittarius enters it’s second quarter. There’s a ton of aspects with the Moon today, so there will be a huge amount of information and energy flying around. Just roll with it. People will be in a happy, optimistic mood with the Moon in Sag, so we begin the week on a good note.

Tuesday, September 14th: Moon in Capricorn. The Sun in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces today, which can bring confusion. Use your instincts, and take other people’s resolutions with a grain of salt. Avoid overindulging in alcohol, food or shopping as ways to handle stress. Mars goes into Libra in the afternoon, which is the sign of it’s detriment. It will be there for a few weeks, and during that time we could find difficulties with advancement. Be patient with men too.

Wednesday, September 15th: Moon in Capricorn, and the beginning of Yom Kippur. The Moon is uncomfortable and heavy here, and authorities can be rigid and uncaring. Energy is hard to get off the ground, control issues arise, along with power struggles. Moon conjuncts Pluto in the middle of the night, giving us intense dreams. Put some lavender under your pillow tonight and try to remember them.

Thursday, September 16th: Moon in Aquarius trines Mars newly in Libra – which could bring up productive conversations in relationships. Don’t expect a lot from men though, because Mars (their representation) is very uncomfortable in Libra. Sun tines Pluto in the early evening, which brings messages about our soul’s current evolution. Sun trine Pluto is powerful, because our Star, the Sun, is connecting harmoniously with Pluto in the outer reaches of our solar system. Look at the big picture, decide where you want to go, and release anything standing in your way.

Friday, September 17th: Moon in Aquarius squares Venus in Scorpio and conjuncts Saturn in the middle of the night, giving some heaviness and intensity to our dreams. This is just a prelude to the main event of the day: Venus in Scorpio square Saturn in Aquarius. There could be a reality check, or wake up call, in the arenas of love and art. A square means you have to put some work into progressing. Also, stay away from protests and marches this weekend. Seriously. They may not turn out well with this aspect as a backdrop.

Saturday, September 18th: Moon void-of-course all morning in Aquarius, then enters Pisces at 1:22pm Pacific. It’s a floaty type of day; great for dreaming and water adventures. Go swimming, or just sit at the beach and dream. The main thing is we are all psychically open right now, so be around trustworthy and authentic people. We are in the orb of the Full Moon coming Monday evening, so keep a low profile.

Sunday, September 19th: Moon in Pisces trines Venus in Scorpio, and sextiles Uranus in Taurus in the afternoon. The Pisces/Scorpio/Taurus combination is great for expressing one’s imagination. Be creative today, and let your instincts speak. Uranus activates our genius, and gives rise to sudden revelations and events.

For the next several days, we are building up to the Full Moon at 29 Aquarius, which will happen in the pre-dawn hours of Sunday, August 22nd. The energies of this Full Moon will unfold NEXT week, and through the end of August. We will have peak experiences with our genius, our social circle, gains, and personal story. Since this Full Moon takes place at the very last degree of Aquarius, we are REALLY wrapping something up – something is ending and something is about to be born anew.

This is the last week we have with the Sun in it’s natural home of Leo. The Sun moves through the last degrees of Leo, and moves into Virgo this coming Sunday, a few hours after the Full Moon in Aquarius! It’s like two Full Moons in one day, since we flip from Leo/Aquarius to Virgo/Pisces in the space of a few hours. Sunday the 22nd is a BIG day.

In other news, Mercury entered Virgo last Wednesday, and is now in the sign of it’s greatest expression (exaltation). The winged messenger is in his home kingdom, so if you need focus, clarity, writing or speaking abilities – Wednesdays are the days to engage in airy Magick. Mercury is only here for a month or so every year, so make good use of this time. In my opinion, Mercury is the planet of Magick and rules the occult.

Monday, August 16th: Moon in Sagittarius squares Mercury and Mars. This will give some foreshadowing on the issues of this week, because Mercury and Mars are traveling closely together all week long. Our energies and our minds are linked and operating in harmony during this build up to the Full Moon. Pay attention to what happens today. Also Venus enters Libra in the middle of the night, yay! Much more comfortable placement for the goddess of love.

Tuesday, August 17th: Moon in Sagittarius goes void-of-course at 6:43pm Pacific. There’s five aspects today too, the biggest being Sun inconjunct Pluto. You could see a small crisis arise that brings you to a turning point. Also, Uranus is slowing down and preparing to station retrograde on Thursday. Life starts feeling different.

Wednesday, August 18th: Moon in Capricorn trines both Mars and Mercury today, as the two planets conjunct each other in Virgo. That’s a powerful trio coming together. Mars is drive, energy, and strategy, and will send us messages about our ambitions today. The Moon is uncomfortable and heavy here, and authorities can be rigid and uncaring. Energy is hard to get off the ground, control issues arise along with power struggles. Keep a low profile today since Uranus (sudden events) is stationing.

Thursday, August 19th: Moon in Capricorn goes void-of-course at 5pm Pacific, and Uranus stations retrograde at 6:40pm. The call to be free is strong; expect the unexpected. Sun also opposes Jupiter around the same time! Look out for arrogance, indulgence, taking risks and being overly optimistic. Whew. There’s just a ton of energy flying around today, so just try and be present and focus on what you have control over.

Friday, August 20th: Moon in Aquarius makes a lovely trine with Venus in Libra, and then conjuncts Saturn. Mercury in Virgo trines Uranus in the middle of the night too, which means anything can happen today. That’s some wonderful airy energy that we can use to enhance our communication and focus our minds. We are now in the orb of the Full Moon coming Sunday morning, so don’t go out tonight. Try new approaches to earthly matters.

Saturday, August 21st: Moon in Aquarius squares Uranus in the early morning. Some new information will help us turn an emotional corner. Also, an Aquarian Moon on a Saturday is great for saturnian Magick, i.e. discipline, structure and focus. The Full Moon rising tonight will be one of the brightest of the year. Remember dream messages.

Sunday, August 22nd: Full Moon at 29 Aquarius at 5:02am Pacific, then into Pisces at 5:43am. Even though the Moon flips into Pisces for the day, the influence of the Aquarian Full Moon is with us. Aquarius and Pisces are multi-dimensional signs, so we can use our imaginations and readily access other “frequencies”. Mars trines Uranus in the middle of the night, which activates our genius, and gives rise to sudden revelations and events.

Climb a high peak and watch the Sunset and the Moon rise at the same time. This is a powerful, revolutionary Full Moon, and it’s the brightest of the year. The nature of Aquarius i.e. independence, genius, science, courage, revolution, will all be at it’s highest within each of us.

We still have a heavy water influence as the week begins, culminating with the airy Aquarian Full Moon on Friday. The Sun moves through the last degrees of Cancer, and we are wrapping up our deep emotional reflections from the past month. The energy is settling. On Thursday, the Sun moves into it’s natural home of LEO!!! Now the focus turns to creative play. Leo is a time of celebration of what it means to be alive. It’s self expression, hosting parties, and making your art. Leo wants to shine it’s light outwardly and share it.

Leo is also identity, and we discover who we are THROUGH being creative. What are you creating? What do you enjoy doing? We see ourselves through our play, our hobbies and crafts, our songs, and through our children. If you are still feeling a little lost from all the massive changes last year, try creating something. You will see yourself in that creation.

Mars and Venus were in exact conjunction last week at 20 Leo, and they are still traveling together this week. Let the inner child in you come out and play, create, take risks and celebrate life! When Mars (masculine) and Venus (feminine) come together, they CREATE. Be playful and romantic with your Love. If you’re single, you can use this energy to balance yourself, because all of us have a male and a female side.

Monday, July 19th: Moon void, then into Sagittarius at 2:08pm Pacific. The Moon makes six different aspects today, most of them positive. The day begins with the Scorpio Moon and Cancerian Sun trining Neptune over in Pisces. Imagination is enhanced and you can make breakthroughs in the areas of love and art.

Tuesday, July 20th: Moon in Sagittarius makes some lovely sextiles today. Before dawn, we have Mercury in Cancer sextile Uranus in Taurus, which can fire up our intellect AND bring surprises. Try new approaches to earthly matters, especially at work. Enjoy the optimistic mood as enter the orb of the Full Moon on Thursday. Life starts feeling different.

Wednesday, July 21st: Moon void, then into Capricorn at 3:36pm. The Moon is uncomfortable and heavy here, and authorities can be rigid and uncaring. Energy is hard to get off the ground, control issues arise along with power struggles. Keep a low profile today since we are in the orb of the Full Moon.

Thursday, July 22nd: Moon in Capricorn, and Sun into Leo at 7:26am Pacific. The Full Moon energy is powerful now, and today could be intense. The call to be free is strong. The Moon is positioning itself between Pluto AND Saturn, which creates positions or attitudes for change that we cannot escape. This is such a powerful placement. We HAVE to evolve right now, there’s no other choice. Be gentle with yourself and let it all flow through you.

Friday, July 23rd: Full Moon at 0 Aquarius at 7:37pm Pacific. It will be Full as it appears on the horizon, so try and climb a high peak and watch the Sunset and the Moon rise at the same time. This is a powerful, revolutionary Full Moon, and it’s the brightest of the year. Also, 0 and 1 degrees are the the most powerful degrees of any sign, so the nature of Aquarius i.e. independence, genius, science, courage, revolution, will all be at their highest within each of us. We start the day with the Moon void-of-course in Capricorn at 9:34am, then into Aquarius at 5:12pm. That’s a long void period, so again practice restraint. Today is a swim through aethers and different dimensions – perfect for artists and lovers. We are currently harvesting what we began in February, when the Sun was in Aquarius. The energies of this Full Moon will unfold over the week ahead as well as the next six months. We will have peak experiences with our ambitions, career, and personal story.

Saturday, July 24th: Moon in Aquarius on a Saturday is great for saturnian Magick, i.e. discipline, structure and focus. Moon makes a powerful conjunction with Saturn, adding intensity to the day, and Mercury trines Neptune, igniting our imaginations, and bringing intuitiveness to communications.

Sunday, July 25th: Moon in Aquarius goes void at 4:14pm Pacific, then into Pisces at 8:30pm. Follow predetermined plans, but have fun today! Mercury comes around and opposes Pluto, which can clear the air with meaningful conversations. Avoid power struggles.

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.
