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 June 21st: Full Moon in Capricorn

Today is the Summer Solstice! The high point of light for all of 2021! Happy Solstice to you and yours. This is such a magical day – and it’s the climax of the year. From here on the days will get shorter.

There are many changes ahead making this a wild astrological week. First, there is a heavy influence of the element “water”, since many planets are interacting in water signs. The Moon is in Scorpio right now, the Sun just went into Cancer today, and is now forming a trine with Jupiter over in Pisces, AND Jupiter and Neptune are both stationing retrograde this week in the sign of Pisces! When planets are stationary retrograde, their influences are extremely strong and influential. All three water signs are currently being activated, which brings up healing, emotions and intuitive messages.

Both Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces soften hard edges and boundaries, bring up inner truths, and reconnect us with our Soul. This morning, June 20, Jupiter began its retrograde through Pisces and Aquarius. The king is turning around to retrace his steps through his ocean kingdoms. Watch for overindulgencees. The positive side of this transit, is that it encourages messages of inner healing, peaceful resistance, communal spirit, and compassion in our world. For the next week or so, Jupiter will be standing still in the sky at 2 Pisces, so if you have any planets in the early degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces, they are getting a powerful boost of luck and expansion.

Venus trines Neptune right after the Sun enters Cancer tomorrow, June 21, giving the Summer Solstice a dreamy, loving vibe. Mercury turns direct in Gemini this Wednesday the 23rd! The Capricorn Full Moon arrives this Thursday, June 24, and Venus enters Leo on June 27! This is truly an eventful week, and each day brings some new, major shift.

Monday, June 21st: Moon in Scorpio and Venus trine Neptune. Imagination is strengthened. This aspect is inspiring for artists, and will be with us all week! You can really make some breakthroughs in the areas of love and art. Enjoy water activities. Hang out by a pool. The Scorpio Moon can bring out the truth, but also make people sensitive, so think before you speak.

Tuesday, June 22nd: Moon in Sagittarius and Mercury Direct in Gemini. We leave rumination behind as our thoughts turn forwards again. All of our illusions about the people in our lives, as well as the stories we tell ourselves, are being purged in order to make way for a new path.Adventures pop up everywhere and our energy rises, especially with Moon trine Mars. Enjoy the optimistic mood as enter the orb of the Full Moon on Thursday. Creative exploration.

Wednesday, June 23rd: Moon in Sagittarius, Sun trine Jupiter AND Venus opposes Pluto. The Sun/Jupiter trine brings a wonderful bounty of opportunity, FUN, and luck! The thing is, Venus opposing Pluto at the same time brings intensity to the mix. We have the chance to deeply connect in our relationships. Get out and mix with people today. Possibilities abound for fun, creativity, progress and connection.

Thursday, June 24th: Full Moon rises at 3 Capricorn, which is a hard place for the Moon. She is in her detriment in Capricorn, which celebrates “getting ahead” more than vulnerabilities. People become cautious, stubborn and distrustful during a Capricorn Moon, and it’s hard to get concessions from authority figures. We can simplify and organize, but the undercurrent of the joyful aspects are still present. We are currently harvesting what we began in January, when the Sun was in Capricorn. 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.

Friday, June 25th: Moon in Capricorn and Neptune stations retrograde. We’re still in the influence of yesterday’s full moon, but with Neptune standing still the intuitive side of things comes to the forefront. It’s a spacy swim through aethers and different dimensions – perfect for artists and lovers. Go to the beach.

Saturday, June 26th: Moon in Aquarius on a Saturday is great for saturnian Magick, i.e. discipline, structure and focus. Moon makes a powerful conjunction with Pluto, adding intensity to the day, and Venus opposes the Moon, bringing up settlements (hopefully good ones!) in relationships.

Sunday, June 27th: Moon in Aquarius goes void at noon for the whole rest of the day! Venus also moves into Leo in the middle of the night. Follow predetermined plans, but have fun today! Venus is happy in Leo, and loves to explore creativity, fashion and performance.

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!!!

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.

Week of May 24th: Full Moon in Sagittarius

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 6 Gemini
Mercury at 14 Gemini (rulership, LOTS of Mercury Magick now)
Venus at 14 Gemini
Mars at 2 Cancer (Mars in detriment, no Mars Magick)
Jupiter at 27 Aquarius
Saturn RETROGRADE at 13 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune at 22 Pisces (rulership, strong)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 26 Capricorn
North Node at 11 Gemini

It’s a week of examining our beliefs and inner truths. The Full Moon rises on Wednesday with an ECLIPSE at 5 Sagittarius. The Full Moon eclipse in Sagittarius sheds light on the inner truths we depend on. It’s a time of reconnecting with your Soul, and updating the story of your life – as well as your inner voice. Sagittarius is optimistic, and wants to explore, expand, philosophize, and tell the truth.

We are currently harvesting what we began last December, when the Sun was in Sagittarius. The energies of this Eclipse will unfold over the week ahead as well as the next six months. We will have peak experiences with our belief systems, ambitions, life perspective and personal story. There’s a strong urge to have a better life. Our relationship with ourself is mirrored in our relationships with other people, so be aware if you’re projecting authority, criticism or appreciation outside of yourself. Remember, finding peace and fullfilment is an inside job. Practice some self validation.

Saturn is standing still in the sky for a couple weeks, going stationary retrograde today. This make things appear less stable then they actually are, and brings worries about our security. Resist those fears, and focus on restructuring your life instead. With Pluto and Saturn basically standing still in the sky, we can experience a big reality check right now. A new path might open up in your life that feels unavoidable… changes that feel forced upon you. If this is the case, do your research, consult with friends, and go with the flow. Everything will turn out fine. Use the energy for healing and restructuring instead.

Saturn has been in the 13th degree of Aquarius since April 18. It will finally leave that degree on June 18th. Meanwhile Pluto, which usually moves about a degree a month, has been stuck at 23 Capricorn since Feb 28, and will be there until June 29. For some there will be a feeling that nothing is moving forward, that progress has become impossible. The sense of time dragging out, or running out, may afflict us. But this is also a rare opportunity for healing, for learning, for meditation, and for building strong foundations for the future.

Monday, May 24th: Moon in Scorpio. Avoid socially awkward situations because the truth will be spoken. Let go of “do or die” mentality. Watch for power struggles and set boundaries where needed. Today is a day of soul searching.

Tuesday, May 25th: Moon void in Scorpio at 2:20pm, then into Sagittarius at 7:39pm Pacific. The mood lightens dramatically, although there is an intensity since we are in the orb of the eclipse tomorrow. Follow previously agreed upon plans during a void moon. It’s also a great time for creative exploration.

Wednesday, May 26th: Full Moon in Sagittarius at 4:14pm Pacific. It’s an adventurous moon! Get outside and try something outside your comfort zone. Revisit your goals and update your plan to achieve them. Past lessons and/or flashes of the future could appear with the Moon conjunct the South Node, so watch for markers and insights.

Thursday, May 27th: Moon void in Sagittarius at 10:35am, then into Capricorn at 7:23pm. This is a very long void period! Venus square Neptune today as well. Brings dreamy, romantic and artistic inspiration, but also the tendency towards overindulgence. Practice moderation in general his week, and try to remain aware of delusion.

Friday, May 28th: Moon into Capricorn at 9:15am Pacific. Mercury conjunct Venus today, which helps us vocalize our desires and feelings. Negotiations and diplomacy are highlighted, along with communication, creative work, and romance. The Moon in Capricorn (Binah) helps bring a new understanding.

Saturday, May 29th: Moon void-of-course in Capricorn at 3:15pm, then into Aquarius at 9:00pm Pacific. Moon in Capricorn and Aquarius on a Saturday is great for saturnian Magick, i.e. discipline, structure and committment. Moon makes a couple of trines today with Uranus and the Sun in Taurus, which can bring pleasant surprises. Mercury also turns retrograde today, which brings the usual delays. Mercury’s station brings a long duration to Mercury square Neptune – now influencing us until June 16th! All of our illusions about the people in our lives, as well as the stories we tell ourselves, are being purged in order to make way for a new path.

Sunday, May 30th: Moon in Aquarius. There’s some lovely aspects today involving Venus, Mercury and Pluto. They will enhance communications and creativity, so enjoy the great vibe. Our minds and feelings will clarify our direction. With Saturn in the mix we can have real heart to heart communications with loved ones. Have a deep conversation. Get to the core of what matters most to you now.

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 3rd

Sun at 13 Taurus
Mercury at 0 Gemini
Venus at 23 Taurus (rulership, LOTS of Venus Magick now)
Mars at 6 Cancer (Mars in detriment, no Mars Magick)

Saturn at 13 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune at 22 Pisces (rulership, strong)
Pluto at 26 Capricorn

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!

It’s a week of getting real. We start the week with the intensity of the Full Moon in Scorpio, AND one of Scorpio’s rulers, Pluto, stationing retrograde. The full Moon in Scorpio can reveal secrets, clear the air, bring a dose of truth, and reawaken passions. It’s a time of reconnecting with your Soul and why you’ve incarnated on the planet at this time. Scorpio reveals mysteries and tells the truth.

We are currently harvesting what we began last November, when the Sun was in Scorpio. The energies of this Full Moon will unfold over the week ahead, and the next six months. We will have peak experiences with passion, personal evolution, sexuality, and occult philosophies. Our relationship with ourself is mirrored in our relationships with other people, so be aware if you’re projecting authority, criticism or appreciation outside of yourself. Remember, finding peace and fullfilment is an inside job, you can’t find it outside of yourself. Practice some self validation.

On the other side of the sky, the Sun moves through Taurus, soon to catch up with Uranus. With Taurus, we build our passions into something tangible and real. Taurus asks us to show up, consolidate our resources, and create sustainable structures in our lives. With Uranus there, we can try different approaches. Taurus is physical beauty – the loveliness of Spring and unfolding of flowers. What’s the state of your health and your body right now?

All the planets have been moving Direct for several weeks, but Pluto is changing direction on Tuesday. It’s a good week for caution, because Pluto is a higher vibration of Mars and can bring volatility. If a part of your life has been neglected for awhile, Pluto stationing can create a crisis or breakdown. Use the energy for healing and restructuring instead.

Both Taurus and Pluto contain treasures and gold, but these are riches that can only be found by going within. What is your gold? What makes you valuable? We can go within and find it this week.

Monday, April 26th: Full Moon in Scorpio 8:32pm Pacific. Definitely stay out of trouble today. People can be quick to anger, especially with Pluto standing still overhead. NOT a good day for risk taking. Don’t go to protests or be in situations that can get out of hand. Watch for power struggles.

Tuesday, April 27th: Full Moon in Scorpio in strong effect, so avoid social complications. Conversely, it’s also a good time to set boundaries (calmly). Pluto stations retrograde around 1pm Pacific, adding to the intensity and “do or die” attitude. We take stock of our lives, identify what needs attention and reform, and begin a plan.

Wednesday, April 28th: Moon moves into Sagittarius at 8:42am Pacific. Today is for rebirthing and transformation. Pluto stationing overhead is very present and could feel heavy, despite the adventurous moon.

Thursday, April 29th: Moon in Sagittarius, plus some wonderful sextiles. The mood finally lightens from the intensity and soul searching of the full Moon. Revisit your goals and update your plan to achieve them. Past lessons and flashes of the future could appear with the Moon conjunct the South Node, so watch for markers and insights.

Friday, April 30th: Moon into Capricorn at 9:15am Pacific. Sun conjunct Uranus brings breakthroughs, revolution and the desire for freedom. Be open to revelations about your life and sudden surprises. Try a different approach to places where you’re blocked and accept invitations for adventures.

Saturday, May 1st: Moon in Capricorn on a Saturday is great for saturnian Magick, i.e. discipline, structure and committment. Moon makes a couple of trines today with Uranus and the Sun in Taurus, which can bring a pleasant activation to the ordeals of last Monday and Tuesday.

Sunday, May 2nd: Moon void-of-course, then into Aquarius at 12:30pm Pacific. There’s some truly lovely aspects today involving Venus, Mercury and Pluto. They will enhance communications and creativity, so enjoy the great vibe. Our minds and feelings will clarify our direction. With Pluto in the mix we can have real heart to heart communications with loved ones. Have a deep conversation. Get to the core of what matters most to you now.

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.

Sun at 8 Aries
Mercury at 19 Pisces (in his Fall; no Mercury Magick)

We start the week basking in the glow of the Full Moon in Libra today. With the Sun, Venus and Chiron conjunct in Aries, opposing the Moon. We have the opportunity for strong healing and new understanding in our relationships. This is phenomenol… it’s rare and I’ve never seen it in my lifetime. This grand conjunction is exact today and will remain with us through the week ahead. The only thing about Chiron, is sometimes it brings healing through a crisis. Women, artists, painters, or other sensitive, creative people may face a crisis related to well being.

We are currently harvesting what we began last October, when the Sun was in Libra. The energies of this Full Moon will slowly unfold over the week ahead. We will have peak experiences in relationships, love, friendship, communication, agreements, fairness, justice and balance. With the Sun in Aries, we are reminded that loving yourself is important, because if you can do that, you will attract people that will love you in return.

On the other side of the equation, there IS an element of chaos occurring that started last year, and continues through 2022: Pluto in Capricorn (catharsis) exactly square to Eris in Aries (Discord). This is also an aspect that occurs very rarely – in fact most people have never lived through this square. These two heavenly bodies are extremely slow moving, so when there’s an aspect it lasts for a very long time. I believe the chaos engendered by this square is the prelude to the U.S.’s Pluto return. That will be coming up in a couple more years.

So on a personal level, we all might be feeling some relief, but on a societal level, we are in the throes of massive change. As a reminder, ALL of the planets are fully Direct until the end of April! Everything in the sky is moving forward (Direct) right now, which is ALSO rare. It’s a great time to gather forward momentum on anything that’s important to you. We had wonderful, healing energy in March, and it will continue for the next few weeks.

Monday, March 29th: Full Moon in Libra still active, but goes void of course at 5pm. We are tuned in to what feels right, and doesn’t feel right, with the people around us. With Chiron in play, we can bring tremendous healing to old wounds. Libra is the scales, so we are weighing how we feel in each situation. Mercury conjunct Neptune in the evening can make facts unclear, but can also bring inspiration to writers and speakers.

Tuesday, March 30th: Moon in Scorpio brings seriousness and intensity; If a boundary needs to be set, today is the day. Scorpio moon is where we draw boundaries to emotionally protect ourselves. T square today, with the Moon squaring Saturn and opposing Uranus at the same time. Stay neutral and be observational in any tiffs or spats.

Wednesday, March 31st: Moon in Scorpio continues, and goes void at 5:30pm Pacific. Don’t let anyone steal your peace. Scorpio’s ruler, Mars, is in Gemini which can bring a “war of words” or online spats. Think things through before speaking. Scorpio Moon is for rebirthing and transformation.

Thursday, April 1st: Moon in Sagittarius. Adventures await! Revisit your goals and update your plan to achieve them. The mood is lighter and communications are enhanced, but there are no major aspects today.

Friday, April 2nd: Moon in Sagittarius with a flurry of aspects. Moon trines Venus which enhances creativity and love. Mercury sextiles Pluto which brings evolution, healing and catharsis to communications. Writer can make good use of this aspect. Past lessons and flashes of the future could appear with the Moon opposing the North Node, so watch for markers and insights.

Saturday, April 3rd: Moon in Capricorn and Mercury into Aries. It’s Easter weekend, and we resurrect ourselves. Mercury entering Aries gives us a new start in our thinking and communications. We find it easier to be direct now, and to speak from the heart.

Sunday, April 4th: Moon in Capricorn (in her detriment) and we enter the 4th quarter Moon. No big aspects today – try not to sink into pessimism with the Moon in this hard place. Use the energy to get out into the garden and do some hard work. With the 4th quarter Moon, we begin a week of rest.
