The Sun moves through the last degrees of Scorpio this week, culminating with an ECLIPSE/Full Moon THIS Thursday night at 27 Taurus. That’s a LOT of force and power, but it’s also trine to Pluto over in Capricorn. This energy encourages transformation and spiritual evolution. You are evolving, especially in the material, earthy sides of your life. Pluto doesn’t leave us a choice either – it’s something you have to do. This lunar eclipse lets you access the deepest darkest parts of your subconscious – bringing them to the light – in order to eliminate fear and heal past trauma. This Moon brings peak experiences with beauty, health, relationships, money, home, job and survival. Taurus is a money sign, and indicates prosperity and love. Since this Full Moon takes place in the last degrees of Taurus, we are completing a personal cycle of growth, and something new is about to begin. The Sun enters Sagittarius next Sunday.

The last month has been a deep dive into exploring our ambitions, healing psychological wounds and uncovering hidden agendas. Sun in Scorpio represents personal power and the truth, and wherever it appears in your chart is where you fearlessly walk through the shadows to find the treasure within you.

There’s a bunch of big aspects this week leading up to the Eclipse, but the trickiest one is the tense and disruptive Mars in Scorpio opposing Uranus in Taurus. It started yesterday with Mercury opposing Uranus; this brings a nervous edge to communications through Tuesday. With Mars opposing Uranus, instincts are heightened and there can be sudden breathroughs. We might have revelations or anxiety, or have a strong urge towards liberation.

Monday, November 15th: Moon in Aries makes us fiesty! Sun and Moon in Mars-ruled signs gives us a driven and ambitious start to the week. We each have a direct line to our Will and can make good progress. Avoid headstrong, risky behavior, or engaging in power plays with others. Watch out for taking on more than you can handle.

Sun in Scorpio squares Jupiter in Aquarius: Look out for over-confidence and arrogance. We each need to do some boundary-setting between our emotions and the needs of our friends. Grab opportunities today and try not to overindulge in anything (Jupiter).

Tuesday, November 16th: Moon in Aries is void-of-course at 7:51am, then void ALL DAY until 6:18pm Pacific when she enters Taurus. No negotiating or risk taking today! Instead, work on your personal goals and health. Tests might come up around your identity and who you are becoming. Best to go slow and stay present with yourself so you can respond properly in the moment. Each of us has a new way of being, and a new life manifesting.

Wednesday, November 17th: Moon in Taurus. Mars in Scorpio opposes Uranus in Taurus, asking us to reconcile our passions with our resources – in a way that liberates us. Moon trines Venus, accentuating the earthy, sensual, Taurus vibe, and moves on to conjunct Uranus. We are in the orb of the Full Moon tomorrow night. Any activity that awakens the five senses is highlighted. It’s a sensual full moon. Very passionate night.

Thursday, November 18th: Full Moon and ECLIPSE at 11:00pm Pacific in Taurus makes a couple of tense aspects today with Mercury and Jupiter. Mercury in Scorpio also trines Neptune in Pisces in the morning, which brings our minds and instincts into a wonderful, watery harmony. Good aspect for creativity and deep connections with others. The Full Moon brings love, beauty, passion, commitment, nature, animals, and the Divine Feminine. Avoid power struggles, control issues and obsession. Pushiness and bullying will get you nowhere. Listen to others, respect their wishes and look to the common good. Taurus wants us all to be healthy and secure.

Friday, November 19th: Moon in Gemini. We are in still in the the orb of the Full Moon, but today we are socializing and talking endlessly about it. Mind the details of your life. Venus trines Uranus in the middle of the night, bringing sudden, (hopefully positive) developments to relationships. The Moon in Gemini will help us communicate openly about our feelings.

Saturday, November 20th: Moon in Gemini continues yesterday’s conversations. Today we have Mercury in Scorpio squaring Jupiter in Aquarius, which brings a serious tone to the day. We set boundaries with friends or groups through our thinking and communications. We can find real meaning in our relationships, because Mercury in Scorpio favors deep understanding between people.

Sunday, November 21st: Moon void-of-course in Gemini all day, entering Cancer at 7:30pm Pacific. Sun into SAGITTARIUS at 6:30pm. We enter a new energy field in the fire sign of the Centaur. Take stock and think about setting some goals. Sagittarius is the sign of the Archer, and he likes to aim at a target. Where will you focus your energies for the coming Winter?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Week of September 6th: New Moon in Virgo

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 balsamic, fallow Moon, building towards a New Moon at 16 Virgo next Monday, Labor Day, September 6th. Leading up to this New Moon, we have an opportunity to release our perfectionism, laziness, self criticism, procrastination, and cluttered houses (i.e. Sun in Virgo). We are wrapping things up, finishing projects and adjusting to new, uncertain conditions. Honestly, it’s a tough time for many people.

We are in a world of extremes, and it’s never seemed so pronounced as it does right now. The Western side of the country is on fire, while a huge, catastrophic hurricane sliced through and leveled the south. Mercury entered Libra Sunday night, which will hopefully create a way for us to listen to and help each other. This is a good position for partnerships, negotiation, and creative activity. This Venus-ruled Mercury placement can bring harmony to life. Celebrate art and love.

The Sun in Virgo is squaring the North and South Nodes of the Moon this week. Watch for sign posts directing you to your future. Mars in Virgo will oppose Neptune in Pisces, and trine Pluto in Capricorn this week, setting off the same aspect that Venus and Mercury encountered recently. Mars wants us to put our plans into ACTION.

Monday, August 30th: Moon in Gemini enters her 4th quarter, and we are in the dark of the Moon for the next several days. Don’t work too hard this week. The dark of the Moon is a time to rest and reflect. Moon trine Saturn puts our emotions in affinity with our ambitions, and smooths over any rough spots. Moon in Gemini encourages us to talk about it.

Tuesday, August 31st: Moon in Gemini goes void at 1:45pm Pacific for the rest of the day. She also makes five aspects, so ride the waves. The Moon goes through every sign, and aspects every planet EVERY month. The Moon ties the astrology together. Keep a low profile today with the void moon. Follow plans that have already been made.

Wednesday, September 1st: Moon in Cancer makes a few minor aspects. We might need solitude, since our sensitivities are at a monthly peak. Give yourself whatever you need today.

Thursday,  September 2nd: Moon in Cancer loves a visit to a pool, lake, river, or ocean if you feel inclined. There’s a few Moon aspects, but the big event today is Mars opposing Neptune. We might experience resistance or disillusionment with the things we want to pursue. Mars is our Will, while Neptune blurs our vision so we can commune with the divine. Don’t give in to feeling lost today, explore your imagination and creativity instead.

Friday,  September 3rd: Moon in Leo doesn’t make any aspects until a sextile with Mercury in the evening. It’s a quiet day astrologically, but the Moon in Leo insists we all have a good time. It’s a heart-filled day, so go out and have an adventure.

Saturday, September 4th: Moon in Leo. Mercury trine Saturn in the evening helps us communicate our truth. Our thinking can also get a reality check. Writers can make progress with editing and organizing their ideas. Whatever comes up, go ahead and talk about it or do some journaling. We are in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle so lots of old feelings and issues could be coming up, so we can release them.

Sunday,  September 5th: Moon in Leo is void-of-course from 7:22am to 4:06pm Pacific, when she enters Virgo. We are in the New Moon in Virgo now, so of course today is good for tidying up the house, running errands, and fixing anything broken. Toss stuff out and let things go – someone else can use it. The big aspect today is Venus square Pluto. Relationships could have a crisis come up that will lead to a deeper understanding, or a breaking point. If you’re single, don’t take any risks. Pluto has a dark, unpredictable energy to it, so practice restraint.

Week of August 16th: Full Moon in Aquarius

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Week of August 9th: New Moon in Leo

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.

Week of August 1st: Harvest festival LAMMAS

Mars joined Venus in Virgo last week, and now we’re busy organizing our lives. In Virgo, Mars lets go of his armor and becomes a specialist who makes lists and gets things done. There is amazing focus available to us right now, as well as attention to detail. Virgo wants to be of service by providing a practical way of reaching our goals, without losing track of the details (or ourselves). Avoid nit-picking arguments and being overly critical of your efforts. Mars and Venus in Virgo can be cranky and irritable.

We begin this week with a balsamic, fallow Moon, building towards a New Moon at 16 Leo next Sunday. Leading up to this New Moon, we have an opportunity to release our laziness, procrastination, and fears of the future (i.e. Sun in Leo). And Sunday was a Sabbat, the ancient festival of Lammas! Lammas is the first harvest festival of the year, signifying the height of Summer and the turn towards Fall. Here are the Goddesses and Gods of Lammas:

Demeter/Ceres: Goddess of grains and the harvest, and mother to Persephone, who is about to return to the Underworld for the Fall and Winter. The change in weather is the grief of Demeter being separated from Persephone.

Cronus/Saturn: Greek god of the harvest and the first father of the universe. He is usually portrayed with a sickle in hand, and is considered a harvest God. He had his own holiday, called the Kronia, when the Greeks celebrated the harvest. It was held in the month of Hekatombaion, with equates roughly to July/August.

Hestia/Vesta: Goddess of Fire and the Hearth, she protects the homes of her worshippers.

Lugh: This is the Celtic God that gave Lammas, or Lughnasadh, it’s name! Lugh is the god of light, truth, oaths and the arts. Tradition says that Lugh created the festival of Lughnasadh in honor of his foster mother and earth goddess, Tailtiu.

Renenutet: Egyptian goddess of nourishment, the harvest, and fertility. Also goddess of the soul’s true name. Sometimes considered the wife of Sobek.

Sobek: Egyptian crocodile god, he was also the god of the Nile. In Egypt, the flooding of the Nile is the primary source of essential nutrients and minerals to the fields, so if the Nile does not flood or has a poor flood in a given year, it can cause a bad harvest. Sobek would be important around this time of year, as the people would want to thank him for a good harvest. Also a protective god and a creator god.

Monday, August 2nd: Moon in Gemini makes a couple of tough squares with Jupiter and Mars. There’s also a big Saturn influence over the beginning of the week due to the Sun’s opposition with Saturn in the middle of the night. Today could be kinda tough, with all of us needing to come up with the hard, cold facts. With the Moon in Gemini, we will find the way through this with our quick minds and communications.

Tuesday, August 3rd: Moon in Gemini makes four nice aspects today – taking the edge off Mercury squaring Uranus in the early evening. This aspect can bring sudden changes and nervous energy. Conversations could take unexpected turns, and it might be difficult to reach understanding through the drama. Leave it for tomorrow. On the bright side, we had a revolutionary Venus trine Uranus in the middle of the night which can enhance our imaginations and relationships.

Wednesday, August 4th: Moon in Gemini goes void at 12:38pm, then moves into Cancer around 2:15pm Pacific. Bring on the hugs and food lol. Moon trines Jupiter around the same time, adding to the feelings of indulgence. Sun trine Chiron today brings lovely opportunities for healing to our old wounds, or healing through children.

Thursday, August 5th: Moon in Cancer sextiles Mars and Uranus, but other than that it’s a quiet day. We are in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle, preparing for rebirth this Sunday. Lots of old feelings and issues could be coming up, so we can release them. The Cancerian Moon loves a visit to a pool, lake, river, or the ocean.

Friday, August 6th: Moon in Cancer goes void of course at 3:12pm Pacific, and makes a couple nice aspects with Venus and Neptune. There’s an opposition with Pluto in the late afternoon which can bring up control issues. Then we have a biggie – Sun square Uranus – which can bring up that nervous, dramatic behavior. Take a different approach to issues from earlier in the week. Embrace liberation and independence.

Saturday, August 7th: Moon in Leo opposes Saturn in Aquarius today. We get a glimpse into the underlying tensions of 2021, so be present for what occurs today. Pay attention, the Universe is sending you messages. Also, walk carefully around people’s feelings, because Moon opposing Saturn can bring negativity, pessimism or reality checks. The New Moon is tomorrow morning!

Sunday, August 8th: New Moon in Leo at 6:50am Pacific squares Uranus. Today is fabulous for Sun Magick, since this New Moon occurs on a Sunday. It’s a rare event, allowing magicians to fully access the enormous power of the Sun. Just Do It! Today is the rebirth of creativity, romance, and all things artistic. Tarot card of the day is Strength – tame your inner lion with compassion and patience.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It’s a week of sensory delights! The Sun enters Taurus on Monday 4/19, at 1:33pm Pacific. This is the sign of wealth, nature, sexuality, luxury, accumulation, and food. Happy early birthday to all the Taureans out there. This week, the Moon is in her 2nd quarter, and we are building to a Full Moon in Scorpio next Monday, April 26th. This Moon will represent the culmination of what’s been building up in April.

When the Sun moves from Aries to Taurus, we shift from our motivations and ambitions to our values and worth. Venus just entered Taurus last Wednesday! She’s only there once every 18 months, so Taurus people will have lovely, harmonious birthdays this year. Since Venus rules Taurus and Libra, these signs are starting a new cycle though the zodiac. Anyone born in those signs will experience an even stronger rebirth then the rest of us.

Pluto in Capricorn is slowing down this week, and will be stationing retrograde next Tuesday the 27th – right after the Full Moon in Scorpio which is ruled by Pluto and Mars. Expect evolution. You must evolve in whatever sector Capricorn represents in your chart.Venu

Monday, April 19th: The Moon in Cancer, occurring on a Monday, is VERY fortuitous for Moon Magick. If you want to increase your intutiveness or self care, today is the day. Also great for improving relationships with women, your Mom or roommates. Burn a blue candle for peace. The Sun and Mercury also enter Taurus today, which enhances the loving, indulgent, emotionally open vibe.

Tuesday, April 20th: Moon in Leo has four squares today with the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus in turn. Tensions bring up self esteem challenges. Taurus and Leo both deal with personal worth and values, so if you feel confused about these issues, give it some time. You don’t have to decide everything today.

Wednesday, April 21st: Moon in Leo. Stand out and be seen! Great day to negotiate with authority figures. Now that we’re past the squares of yesterday, we can feel optimistic, and access the playful and creative side of the Leo Moon. Connecting self love and self esteem today.

Thursday, April 22nd: Moon in Virgo. Earth Day. Venus conjuncts Uranus at 6pm Pacific, which could lead to a wild, impulsive evening with our friends or lovers. Self worth is still present in our consciousness, so increase your awareness of revelations conderning your identity. Our minds are active and spontaneous with Mercury (Virgo’s ruler) in Aries.

Friday, April 23rd: Moon in Virgo and Mars into Cancer, where is he is miserable. Men could act sensitive and out of sorts over the next few weeks. Avoid pettiness, pickiness and over analysis.

Saturday, April 24th: Mercury conjuncts Uranus in the middle of the night, then Moon into Libra around 9am Pacific. We are in the orb of the Full Moon so things could start getting intense or extreme, Meditation is a great way to focus the mind and manage any anxiety around this moon.

Sunday, April 25th: Moon in Libra, but we are feeling the Full Moon in Scorpio tomorrow. On top of that, we have SEVEN aspects today, including Venus and Mercury each squaring Saturn. Tensions with lovers and friends so tread carefully. I would avoid any heavy conversations over the next several days, and focus on deep connection instead.
