We begin this week with a fallow, 4th quarter Moon. We are wrapping things up, finishing projects and adjusting to new conditions. This is the last week of the Sun traveling through Libra, and with the Sun and Venus squaring Pluto, we are facing the toxic sides of our relationships. There’s a New Moon ECLIPSE in Scorpio coming next Tuesday, October 25th as well. All of this happening while Saturn, Mars and Pluto stand still in the sky.

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 Scorpio cycle will effect you, you can book a short reading with me here for $45.

Wednesday, October 19th: Moon in Leo, and everyone wants attention. Sun/Venus both square Pluto in the morning, revealing the underbelly of relationships. Be gentle when discussing issues with anyone today. Repressed emotions and fears rise to the surface, driving us towards security. Also, Mercury opposes Chiron giving voice to the health and healing of deep emotional wounds. It’s a transformative day.

Week of September 19th

Valentine Cameron Prinsep – At the First Touch of Winter, Summer Fades Away, 1897

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 26 Virgo
Mercury RETROGRADE at 4 Libra
Venus at 17 Virgo (not good, in her fall)
Mars at 15 Gemini
Jupiter RETROGRADE at 4 Aries
Saturn RETROGRADE at 19 Aquarius (rulership)
Uranus RETROGRADE at 18 Taurus
Neptune RETROGRADE 23 Pisces (rulership)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 26 Capricorn
North Node at 14 Taurus

We begin this week with a balsamic, fallow Moon, building towards a New Moon in Libra on Sunday, September 25th. Leading up to this New Moon, we have an opportunity to release our relationship blocks – especially romantic ones. It’s a good time to get clear on what you’re looking for in your love life. Venus, the planet of Love, is in her fall right now which means she is unable to express her true nature. It makes everyone, particularly women, less trusting and more critical than usual. The dark of the Moon, leading up to a New Moon in Libra, is a time for self examination about what you are projecting onto the people around you. Also, we are wrapping things up, finishing projects and adjusting to new conditions.

Everyone is going through some growth challenges right now. On Thursday, September 22nd the Sun enters Libra and we have the Fall Equinox! It’s such a relief after this brutal Summer. The Fall Equinox is a portal to our inner selves AND one of the most magical times of the year. This week is a major turning point, and if things have been feeling stagnant, you will see shifts happening.

Wednesday, September 21st: Moon in Leo on the last day of Summer is kind of perfect. The Sun’s influence is waning, and we are heading into the darkness. Moon opposes Saturn making us acutely aware of the passage of time. Don’t get pessimistic or slip off to the dark side. Get some last rays of sunshine and exercise. Moon squaring Uranus can be eye opening. Leo Moon brings style. Time to dress up with some glitz and glam.

Thursday,  September 22nd: Moon void-of-course in Leo ALL DAY! Look out for egos, tempers and stubbornness. Anything can happen during a void period, and this is a long one! There could be posturing with the Leo Moon demanding to be the center of attention. FALL EQUINOX. Sun enters LIBRA at 6:04pm Pacific. Equal day equal night. This is a special day. Think about the “seeds” you planted in March this year, are they bearing fruit now? What do you want to harvest?

Week of August 22nd: New Moon in Virgo

John Dee Performing an Experiment before Elizabeth I, Henry Gillard Glindoni (1852-1913),

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 0 Virgo
Mercury DIRECT at 24 Virgo (exalted)
Venus at 11 Leo
Mars at 0 Gemini
Jupiter RETROGRADE at 7 Aries
Saturn RETROGRADE at 21 Aquarius (rulership)
Uranus at STATIONING 18 Taurus
Neptune RETROGRADE 24 Pisces (rulership)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 26 Capricorn
North Node at 17 Taurus

The Sun moved into Virgo on Monday, heralding the beginning of harvest season! The transition from Leo to Virgo is profound. With the Sun in Leo, we reveled in our true identity, and practiced new ways of expressing it to the world; now with Virgo we organize our lives and get to work.

Moon wise, we are in the last quarter of the Moon’s cycle, preparing for the New Moon in Virgo this Saturday the 27th. The week ahead is about wrapping things up, resolving issues, paying debts, and reflecting on our lives.

Mars entered Gemini on Saturday for the next seven months! That’s March 2023! In Gemini, Mars lets go of his armor and becomes a social butterfly, focusing on communication, solving puzzles and battles of strategy. People with anxiety might need extra support during this time, because Mars adds electricity to our nervous system. A good place to focus your attention for the next seven months is on freedom and liberation. Where do you need to set yourself free? Let yourself off the hook? Have some FUN and adventures? This transit is spectacular for studying a new subject, or applying your mind to solve any type of challenge.

Thursday, August 25th: Moon in Leo, and Mercury moves into Libra, the great balancer. Relationships of all kinds will be blessed this month with real understanding and progress between people. Mercury in Libra makes us aware of all sides of a situation, especially the viewpoints of others. The key is balance. Also today, we are in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle, preparing for rebirth this Saturday with the New Moon in Virgo. Lots of old feelings and issues could be coming up so we can release them.

Friday’s New Moon at 11 Aries continues to unfold this week, as Mars makes an exact conjunction with Saturn at 23 Aquarius (improvement, liberation, the future). What are you driven towards? This aspect focuses our Will, self-control and discipline. It’s not enough to have big ideas and ambitions, Saturn makes you work hard for them. With this conjunction we are open to direction from authority figures, and we follow the tried-and-true path. This increases our chances for success! There are limits on pushing TOO hard though – you need to play by Saturn’s rules.

Also, this Mars-Saturn conjunction is exactly square the Moon’s nodes. Something will come up this week that is non-negotiable. There’s something you MUST DO, in order to proceed in life towards the North Node in Taurus (unconditional self-love, abundance, prosperity, self-sufficiency). This is where each of us is headed right now. We will see a major change in the next couple of weeks, both with this aspect, and next week with the exact conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune.

The Aries New Moon last Friday was conjunct Mercury and Chiron. It was a new beginning for the year ahead, but also the start of a new phase of healing our deepest wounds. We can find this healing through reading, talking, writing, listening, therapy or any form of self-expression. Once we reach a new understanding, it is important to feel the pain and grieve. Owning the hurt feelings is the way to deep peace.

Monday, April 4th: Moon in Taurus is exalted, especially on a Monday. Normally it would be great for Moon Magick, but today we also have Mars conjunct Saturn. Keep a low profile and focus on your inner work. There’s some wonderful progress that can be made, but these planets are both malefics, so there is a threat of anger and violence.

Tuesday, April 5th: Moon in Gemini brings sociability and negotiation. This is a fast-moving day, and there will be lots of developments. Venus moves into Pisces at 8:18am Pacific, which is the sign of her exaltation or greatest expression. Taureans and Librans are going to have a great couple of months. Venus in Pisces is inspiring, creative, dreamy, imaginative, and romantic. Don’t get lost in lustful fantasies, no matter how enticing. This is a wonderful placement for all artists.

Wednesday, April 6th: Moon in Gemini makes five different aspects today – positive trines with Mars, Saturn and Venus, while squaring Jupiter and Neptune. There could be harmony and great communication in relationships today, but the squares bring general confusion. No big decisions today, focus on mindfulness and getting grounded.

Thursday, April 7th: Moon in Cancer makes a lovely trine with Venus newly in Pisces. It’s a romantic and sentimental day. Also, Mercury sextile Saturn is exact, which brings grounded communications. We choose our words carefully and communicate what’s really on our minds. Great day for studying and applying yourself to anything mentally challenging. If you get overwhelmed, take some deep breaths and meditate.

Friday, April 8th: Moon in Cancer has you staying home and nesting. Be gentle… Easy Does It. Creativity, nostalgia, food, and emotional release are good uses of this energy. Today Mercury sextile Mars is exact, which supercharges our minds from yesterday’s shifts. There will be more good news and development about our ideas.

Saturday, April 9th: Moon in Cancer goes void-of-course at 6pm. Stay home tonight. Avoid difficult conversations because sensitivities are high. The Moon is opposite Pluto today (while Pluto squares Mercury) so there could be a new understanding, OR tension and control issues.

Sunday, April 10th: Moon in Leo brings us back to our center, to our reason for being. In the evening, Mercury enters Taurus – where he’s not all that happy. The lightning-fast Messenger doesn’t like the slow pace of the Bull. Also, Mercury square Pluto is exact which is rough because our Mind faces the Dark Side. Good day for shadow work i.e. examining self-sabotage, toxic patterns, fears, and control issues. Repressed thoughts and desires could rise to the surface. Watch out for negative thinking in your head or from the mouths of other people.

Last Wednesday’s New Moon at 12 Pisces continues to unfold, and this week two giants of the sky join the Piscean party – the Sun and Jupiter. These planets are the greatest benefics in astrology, and each brings joy, luck, money and expansion in their own right. In a conjunction, like we have this week, they initiate a rebirth. This weekend they joined up in their annual conjunction, bringing forth a new era for each of us.

We are still reeling from last week though, and we could use some positive energy. Mars, Venus and Pluto were conjunct last Thursday at 27 Capricorn, starting us on a new descent into the underworld. This is a challenging conjunction. Mars has been volatile the past few months, and we are witnessing the horrific results with Putin’s unprovoked attack on Ukraine.

Mars and Venus just entered Aquarius together this weekend, starting a new, two-year cycle. I’m hoping the focus will change from conquest to humanitarian pursuits. Most of the planets are traveling through new territory. Everything is resetting itself and starting new cycles. There’s a lot of energy up in the air, and many of us are feeling lost and confused. One good way to work through this, is to keep a consistent spiritual practice. If you do something every morning, it will help you make sense of the changes in the world, and in your own psyche. Pisces is a time of endings, surrender, and union with the divine.

Monday, March 7th: Moon in Taurus is exalted, especially on a Monday! Today is excellent for Moon Magick: anything involving fertility, women’s issues, children, nurturing, your home, animals, intuition and emotions. Don’t try and negotiate with authority figures today, let them win the argument. Also, things slow waaaay down with the Moon in Taurus, and we indulge in sensual delights. Get yourself an excellent dinner because Taurus loves food.

Tuesday, March 8th: Moon into Gemini at 10:40am Pacific trines Pluto, then Venus and Mars. This is a fast-moving day, and there will be lots of communication on all levels. Developments are rapid, and we feel like we’re getting things done. THIS is a great day for networking, commerce, business, groups, transactions and social activities. We get moving today.

Wednesday, March 9th: Moon in Gemini all day as his ruler, Mercury, enters Pisces. Mercury is in his “fall” here, which means he is extraordinarily unhappy. Mercury, representing our minds, is unable to focus or move with any speed while moving through Pisces. Lots of confusing currents today, so ride the waves. Moon squares Jupiter in Pisces too, which adds to the confusion.

Thursday, March 10th: Moon is void-of-course in Gemini ALL DAY!! Don’t do anything of any importance. Follow plans that are pre-arranged and drive carefully. Despite the void moon it will be a chatty day with lots of activity. With Mercury in Pisces, important decisions could be difficult to formulate. Practice mindfulness.

Friday, March 11th: Moon in Cancer all day, and we become homebodies. Take the day off if you can, or work from home. Be gentle… Easy Does It. Creativity, nostalgia, food, and emotional release are good uses of this energy. It’s a good date night, but people will be sensitive and vulnerable, so be aware.

Saturday, March 12th: Moon in Cancer. Avoid difficult conversations today because sensitivities are high. Also, the Moon is opposite Pluto today, bringing up tensions and control issues.

Sunday, March 13th: Moon into Leo at 12:32pm Pacific. There’s a lot of planets in transition right now, and we are finding new ways of looking at things. The Moon in Leo brings us back to our center, to our reason for being. We reconnect with ourselves today – in a BIG way. The Sun conjuncts Neptune today as well.

The Sun moves through the last degrees of Capricorn this week, culminating with a Full Moon in Cancer next Monday, January 17th. That’s a LOT of energy focused on our home and family life. Pluto at 26 Capricorn is also in the mix. This energy encourages transformation and spiritual evolution. You are evolving, especially in the material, earthy sides of your life. Pluto presents us with opportunities to evolve and transform – usually whether we want to or not.

Mercury turns retrograde in Aquarius this Friday, January 14th while squaring Uranus. A revolution could be brewing in your personal life, since Uranus calls us to freedom and liberation. The square aspect, means there’s a test we need to overcome so we can turn a corner and start a fresh path. Mercury stationing, and squaring Uranus, can bring lots of nervousness and uncertainty due to sudden changes and events. There could be extremes, and changes in plans.

We also have Venus retrograde conjunct Pluto. Virgos, Capricorns and Pisceans, you will benefit by paying attention to Venus all through January.

Monday, January 10th: Moon in Taurus is exalted, especially on a Monday! Today is excellent for Moon Magick. With Taurus, do not confront or negotiate with authority figures, let them win the argument. You can push back next week. Also, things slow waaaay down with the Moon in Taurus, and we indulge in sensual delights. Get yourself an excellent dinner because Taurus loves food.

Tuesday, January 11th: Moon in Taurus. Slow, quiet day. Any activity that awakens the five senses is highlighted. Get outside today and appreciate nature. Taurus is love, beauty, passion, commitment, nature, and animals. Avoid power struggles, control issues and obsession. Pushiness and bullying will get you nowhere. Mars in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces at 20 degrees. Agendas could get watered down or confused, so don’t be discouraged if actions don’t bring immediate results.

Wednesday, January 12th: Moon void-of-course in Taurus all day, into Gemini at 7:08pm Pacific. Moon conjuncts Uranus, then trines Venus accentuating the earthy, sensual, Taurus vibe. Any activity that awakens the five senses is highlighted. Mercury is slowing down, preparing to go retrograde on Friday, so actions may not bear results this week.

Thursday, January 13th: Moon in Gemini squares Jupiter in Pisces then trines Mercury in Aquarius. Chatty day with lots of activity, but with Mercury stationing, important decisions could be difficult to formulate. Listen to others, respect their wishes and look to the common good.

Friday, January 14th: Mercury goes retrograde in the pre dawn hours at 9 Aquarius. With Mercury stationing, hold off on important conversations or purchases. Moon in Gemini goes void-of-course at 6:22pm Pacific, kicking off a social and talkative evening. Mind the details of your life. The Moon in Gemini will help us communicate openly about our feelings. Mercury retrograde until Feb. 3rd.

Saturday, January 15th: Moon in Cancer. Avoid difficult conversations today because sensitivities are high. Be gentle… Easy Does It. Creativity, nostalgia, food, and emotional release are good uses of this energy. We are in the orb of the Full Moon Monday night.

Sunday, January 16th: Moon in Cancer and Sun conjunct Pluto. Be prepared for some intensity with this aspect and the approaching Full Moon. Pluto lets you access the deepest darkest parts of your subconscious – bringing them to the light – in order to eliminate fear and heal past trauma.

There will be continued developments this week from the dramatic Full Moon in Gemini on Saturday night. This Moon inspires us to start a new story in our lives; a new narrative. The Sun enters Capricorn on Tuesday, ushering in the Winter Solstice. We leave the optimistic fires of Sagittarius for the stern, cold hillsides of Capricorn. This turns our focus to the foundations of our lives, and creating new stability. With Capricorn season, the mood withers, and we are faced with reality, the bottom line, our career, finances and survival.

Monday, December 20th:  Moon in Cancer makes some lovely aspects but brings heightened sensitivity, so step carefully around peoples’ feelings. Go with the flow of your life, and put your energies towards things you have control over. The Moon in Cancer (the Moon’s natural home), on a MONDAY (day of the Moon), means you can do big Moon Magick. Anything involving security, the home, plants, cooking, nurturing, children, fertility or creativity is highlighted.

Tuesday, December 21st: Winter Solstice. Sun enters Capricorn at 8:00am, and the Moon is void-of-course in Cancer, entering Leo at 1:54pm Pacific. The Moon opposes Venus and Pluto too, which brings intensity to the day. Relationship issues could arise in order to be healed and released. Slow down and take your time with projects – there’s no rush.

Wednesday, December 22nd: Moon in Leo gives us a refreshed, lighter attitude today. Lead with your heart and focus on self expression. There’s some tricky aspects in the afternoon though: Moon opposes Saturn and squares Uranus in the late morning. This could bring up difficulties, and you’ll need to work to solve them. Patience is the only way through these energies. Take a break if you need to.

Thursday, December 23rd: Moon in Leo sextiles Neptune, Pluto and Venus today. This can bring small, positive developments with relationships. Peace can be achieved, and people will seek to connect through natural affinity. Today is good for seeking acknowledgement and cooperation from those in leadership positions. Also, entertainment will bring relaxation and happiness.

Friday, December 24th: Christmas Eve. Moon in Virgo makes us budget conscious, so last-minute shopping could become practically oriented. Also, the third and final Saturn square Uranus is exact today, igniting the friction between the old way of doing things and the new world approaching us. This has been the ongoing influence of this entire year – the battle between the old, traditional world and the new, progressive future. Choose your battles.

Saturday, December 25th: Christmas Day. Moon in Virgo trines Uranus and Mercury, which can bring sudden surprises. It will be a busy day. The best use of Virgo energy today is to follow a plan, put out healthy snacks, be of service and keep the house tidy. Avoid criticism and over-analysis. There could be a dark undercurrent – with retrograde Venus conjuncting Pluto for the second time. Release old, toxic energies and focus on healing.

Sunday, December 26th: Moon in Libra enters her 4th quarter. Kwanzaa begins, and in England it’s Boxing Day. The Moon trines Venus and Pluto today, bringing positive developments to the themes of this week. Mercury also sextiles Neptune which allows our minds to wander and be inspired. Spend quality time with the ones you love.

Week of December 14th: Full Moon Eclipse in Gemini

🪐 View Planet Parade in December 🪐

Observers from the Earth will have a chance to spot the planet parade at the beginning of December. Five planets will gather in one sky area:
🌟 Venus (-4.7m)
🌟 Saturn (0.9m)
🌟 Jupiter (-1.8 )
🌟 Neptun (7.7)
🌟 Uranus (6.0)

The dwarf planet Ceres (6.9), a large asteroid Pallas (7.6), and the Moon (-11.4) will settle nearby.

The best time to observe them is December 12, 2021; look for the celestial objects right after sunset. Venus, Saturn, Jupiter, and the Moon will be visible to the naked eye. A pair of binoculars or a small telescope will help you to see the dimmer Neptune, Uranus, Ceres, and Pallas. 🔭

  • Although there is now an official scientific definition of the term “planet parade,” astronomers use it to denote an astronomical event that happens when Solar System planets line up in the same sky area as seen from the Earth.

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, December 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, December 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, December 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, December 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, December 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, December 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, December 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?

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!!

There will be continued developments this week from the dramatic Full Moon Eclipse last Thursday. The energies around an eclipse are tricky. The best way to handle it, is to do chores, grunt work, meetings, or phone calls that you’ve been avoiding for awhile. An eclipse often helps us see things inside us and around us that have been hidden, but the best way to deal with it is to limit sudden surprises in your life. That means dealing with your life in a deep way.

In ancient times, an eclipse was thought to be a portent of doom – corresponding to the head (North Node) and tail (South Node) of a great dragon. The dragon’s head is forever hungry and consuming, so the idea is, if you’re handling things you’ve been procrastinating on, you’re feeding the dragon’s head true sustenance, and the neverending hunger might be abated. In two weeks we’ll have to deal with another eclipse involving the tail of the dragon. More on that later…

The Sun entered Sagittarius today! We leave the watery, ocean depths of Scorpio for the sunny hillsides of the Centaur. This week starts in the third quarter of the Moon, turning into a fallow Moon on Saturday. With Sagittarius season, the mood lightens and we become more adventurous, philosophical, and goal-oriented. Be on the look out for false optimism and arrogance though.

Monday, November 22nd:  Moon in Cancer. Everyone will be hyper-sensitive, so careful not to offend anyone today. Avoid social complications or “rocking the boat”. Instead, go with the current of your life, and put your energies towards things you have control over. The Moon in Cancer (the Moon’s natural home), on a MONDAY (day of the Moon), means you can do big Moon Magick. Anything involving security, the home, plants, cooking, nurturing, children, fertility or creativity is highlighted.

Tuesday, November 23rd: Moon in Cancer continues; she opposes Venus, then trines Mars and Neptune. Still avoid confronting anyone today – indulge yourself instead. Creativity is accessible, so develop ideas. Good for love, tending plants and animals, opening up and clearing the house. Moon opposing Pluto in the evening can put us in a dark mood, so focus on healing.

Wednesday, November 24th: Moon into Leo at 8am Pacific gives us a refreshed, lighter attitude today. This is further enhanced by the Moon conjuncting the Sun and Mercury, newly in Sagittarius. Have some fun! Mercury in Sagittarius sets our minds free and allows us to explore our personal life perspectives for the next few weeks.

Thursday, November 25th: Moon in Leo is the PERFECT placement for Thanksgiving. People will lead from the heart and seek to connect through natural affinity. Today is also good for seeking acknowledgement and cooperation from those in leadership positions; although you shouldn’t be working. Performances will be first rate.

Friday, November 26th: Moon void-of-course All Day in Leo makes this a bad day to spend money. We are more likely to buy things on a whim and regret it later. Can you do Black Friday shopping tomorrow? Moon goes into Virgo at 6:12pm Pacific, which makes us much more discerning and budget conscious.

Saturday, November 27th: Moon in Virgo enters her 4th quarter. Today we balance the books, manage our health, and tackle anything requiring attention to detail. We are busy busy busy. The Moon makes a couple of squares with Mercury and the Sun, and trines Uranus around 4:15pm. It could be an evening of pleasant surprises.

Sunday, November 28th: Moon in Virgo, going void-of-course at 4pm Pacific. Today we do weekly shopping and get organized. The Moon makes five positive aspects today, culminating with a lovely Sun conjunct Mercury in Sagittarius. This means that Mercury is “via combusta”, or lost in the fires of the Sun, and we must operate on instinct. Hanukkah begins at sundown.
