We began this week with a New Moon at 14 Virgo, which occurred Monday and continues to unfold today. We are inspired to clean up our lives and get everything in order. Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the winged messenger of thought and communication. With the Sun and Mercury so close together, our minds are at their peak, and we can be decisive. The decisions you make now, determine your future path.

Virgo means to discern, analyze, discriminate and assimilate (which is why I posted the picture of the cell). We need to take care of ourselves and each other. Virgo is a sign of health, work, and being of service. We are preparing to enter ‘relationships’ when the Sun goes into Libra on September 22nd. How we enter the world needs to be thought out, planned and disciplined in Virgo.

The floods last week from hurricane Ida were catastrophic for so many people. Last week, the Moon in Cancer was trining Neptune in Pisces, while Neptune opposed Mars. Neptune and Pisces signify water, the collective unconscious, tidal waves, chaos, the ocean, intuition, surrender, and connection with the divine. With Mars opposing, it can turn into a huge, violent storm. It’s overwhelming, and can bring destruction, anger, and violence in it’s wake. I believe the catastrophe of this storm was brought about by climate change, and enhanced planetarily. I hope relief will come with this New Moon.

Monday, September 6th: New Moon in Virgo at 5:52pm Pacific today! Virgo is the High Priestess of Reality. She is an Earth sign ruled by Mercury. The Earth is our physical body. How is your health right now? What can you do to support your health and be stronger? Besides the fabulous New Moon energy, there is a whole slew of major aspects today! Huge shifts are happening:
Mars in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn at exactly 24 degrees. Our energy is boosted.
Venus in Libra trines Jupiter in Aquarius – romantic, artistic, lovely energy.
Sun in Virgo trines Uranus in Taurus – this magnifies the New Moon energy, and brings inspiration, ideas, and revolutionary thinking.
Mars inconjunct Jupiter – could bring health-related crisis

Tuesday, September 7th: Virgo Moon goes void-of-course at 12:24pm, then enters Libra at 8:20pm Pacific. That is a very long void period! Follow already laid plans and avoid taking risks during this time. The New Moon in Virgo energy is still very strong today, especially with all of those major aspects. Our focus is on order and health. Moon conjunct Mars during the void period inspires us to action and ambition.

Wednesday, September 8th: Moon in Libra all day makes a lovely trine with Saturn, and then conjunction with Mercury. Lots of good “airy” energy today if you feel inspired to create some Mercury Magick. A simple thing to do is to light a yellow candle to clear and inspire your mind. This is one of the last Wednesdays to do real Mercury Magick for this year, so make good use of it.

Thursday, September 9th: Moon in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn in the afternoon. There could be a continuation of whatever event happened on Sunday – maybe further conversation or developments. The focus will be on fairness, balance and justice. Try to see the other person’s point of view and be flexible. Agreements will be hard won.

Friday, September 10th: Moon in Scorpio AND Venus into Scorpio at 1:39pm Pacific, which is the sign of her detriment. We are entering a tough few weeks for relationships – as well as for beauty and art-related areas. Let women have the last word while Venus transits Scorpio. Moon square Saturn in the afternoon makes us agree to reality-based ideas.
Remember, with a Scorpio Moon, visit the ocean, or hang out by a pool. This 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.

Saturday, September 11th: Moon in Scorpio makes five aspects today, giving us opportunities for deep, emotional growth. Scorpio is the sign of healing, rebirth, transformation and regeneration, so it’s a good placement for the 20 year rememberance of 911. The only challenge comes from the Moon squaring Jupiter in Aquarius, so resist the urge to escape reality or over-indulge in vices.

Sunday, September 12th: Moon in Sagittarius sextiles Saturn in the afternoon, so you can make some progress with challenging work, or getting chores done. Sagittarian moon wants to play around and explore, so carve out time for adventures too!

We begin this week with a New Moon in Leo, which occured Sunday at 6:50am Pacific, at 16 Leo, and continues to unfold throughout the week. We now begin new projects involving creativity and self expression. Leo is the most powerful of all zodiac signs, because it is the only one ruled by the Sun. Now we get to play around, be childlike, explore beauty, be romantic, goof off, create art and be physical. It symbolizes our souls, and their EXPRESSION, along with a feeling of togetherness.

On the other hand, we have a resurgence of Covid. People are beginning to social distance again, to wear masks and isolate in their homes. This is, once again, Saturn in Aquarius. The multitudes, the population, humanity (Aquarius) – is being LIMITED by Saturn. This stern planet rules restrictions, responsibilities, maturity and reality. It is the opposite of the Leo Sun, so our leonine frolicking might be limited. This became pronounced with the exact opposition between the Sun in Leo and Saturn in Aquarius that occured last week.

The Sun and Saturn opposition is also forming squares to Uranus in TAURUS. Uranus here causes us to reevaluate our resources, self reliance, our money, where we live, our survival… the simple basics of life. We are being asked to approach these things in a new way. Uranus is the planet of liberation, rebellion, UFO’s, computer nerds, science, numbers, space and astrology. Taurus is the EARTH in every way, and here we have wild, eccentric Uranus sweeping through and changing the rules. It’s a big shift, and it will be there five more years!

Monday, August 9th: Moon in Virgo all day, but the massive effect of yesterday’s New Moon at 16 Leo is still in effect. Chiron in Aries is closely trine to the New Moon in Leo, and can bring soul healing. Also today Venus opposition Neptune is exact. Artists, musicians and writers can make good headway on their projects. Imagination and inspiration are easily accessed, but avoid the urge for intoxication and escapism.

Tuesday, August 10th: Virgo Moon brings order, health and discipline; watch out for self criticism or doubt. Mercury opposite Jupiter at 6:20pm can bring arrogance and misunderstandings, so save important conversations for tomorrow. Also, Mars in Virgo squares the Moon’s nodes (past and future), which brings healing opportunities from the past, so we can move forward. This healing aspect will be going on for the next week or so.

Wednesday, August 11th: Moon and Venus in Virgo, BOTH trine Pluto today! This is major, cathartic shifts in the areas of feelings and relationships. Watch for “do or die” situations, and remember there is more to the picture. You are not trapped or stuck. Try not to freak yourself out. Huge healing and transformation is also available with these aspects – especially involving health, work, art, romance or ambitions. Go with the flow and write down your epiphanies.

Also, Mercury enters Virgo, it’s exaltation!!! Yay!! Our minds will be operating at peak efficiency for the next month. Wonderful for making plans, writing, finishing projects, organizing, and getting your life together!

Thursday, August 12th: Moon in Libra trines Saturn in the morning, giving this day a serious vibe. The focus will be on fairness, balance and justice. Try to see the other person’s point of view and be flexible. Agreements will be hard won.

Friday, August 13th: Moon in Libra, into Scorpio at 5pm Pacific. Mars semi-sextile to Saturn will make us roll up our sleeves and get to work. We will be driven today, and can make solid progress where we focus our attention. With Mars, Venus and Mercury in Virgo, it’s not a great date night. We’re laser focused on health right now, so embrace it. Practice patience.

Saturday, August 14th: Moon in Scorpio makes four aspects today, giving us many opportunities for a new adventure. Venus and Jupiter are in a tussle (inconjunct) in the morning, so the desire for indulgences will be strong, just keep an eye on yourself and your inclinations. Don’t take risks today.

Sunday, August 15th: Moon in Scorpio makes five different aspects today, and moves into Sagittarius at 8:12pm Pacific. 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.

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.

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.

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.
