We begin this week with today’s New Moon at 22 Aries! We are reanimating ourselves, and hitting the reset button on our ambitions. It’s an exciting time, because each of us is seeing new options in our lives. If there is something you want to grow this year, “plant the seed” and start it NOW! We are rebirthed when the Sun is in Aries, and this week in particular, we will see some solutions to all of the problems we encountered last year. This week the Moon is waxing (growing bigger) each day and the Sun moves through the last degrees of Aries, entering Taurus next Monday, April 19th.

Also this coming week, Venus, the Sun and Mercury each square Pluto. There is an old structure in your life that is about to change or evolve; something you thought would NEVER change. Maybe it’s your job, or city, or attitude about life… it is shifting and you can feel it change this week. Venus (Love and trust) squared Pluto (evolution) today, evolving our vulnerability with other people. Maybe we have better internal boundaries, or are taking better care of our hearts.

NOTE: Pluto is currently at 26 Capricorn, but the “Pluto return” for the United States is 27 Capricorn. This means Pluto is ONE DEGREE from the exact Pluto return of the U.S. What this means is all of the twisted, toxic energy in the US is coming up to be purged – racism, political power struggles, white supremacy, sexism, faschism, wealth disparity, guns… it’s all coming to be RELEASED and healed in the next few years. The US’s exact Pluto return is next February, 2022.

Monday, April 12th: Moon into Taurus, and Ramadan begins. The week after a New Moon gives us fresh energy, and a feeling of rebirth. Watch for stubborness; instead slow down like the Taurus bull and take it a step at a time. Practice patience.

Tuesday, April 13th: Moon in Taurus. The Moon is exalted here, so we’re feeling grounded and emotionally centered today. We might be drawn to indulgence of the senses too, which is a great use of this energy. Sun sextiles Mars, which syncs up the Ego and the Drive in each of us. This is an invigorating aspect that can bring up our irritations, so stay away from arguments.

Wednesday, April 14th: Moon in Taurus, AND Venus into Taurus! Venus is the planet of Love, and in Taurus she enters her rulership. This makes the next few weeks a powerful time for self expression, love, art, nature, women and relationships. Slow way down and savor all sensations. Spend time with your lover, or go out and get one.

Thursday, April 15th: Moon in Gemini, and Sun sextiles Jupiter. We are drawn to sociability, sharing and TALKING, and the Sun and Jupiter keep our focus on the big picture. The air is alive with optimism and success.

Friday, April 16th: Moon in Gemini, and Sun squares Pluto. This aspect can take off our mask, OR bring someone else’s secret to light. There’s an element of seriousness to today’s activities. Pay attention. It’s an evolution of the Soul today, and we find there are certain directions we can’t move towards, no matter how comfortable and familiar the path.

Saturday, April 17th: Moon in Gemini, into Cancer at 1:25pm Pacific. There is a TON of aspects today – ten to be exact. There will be a LOT of energy flying around, so go slow and let things unfold. Real clarity on today’s issues won’t come for a couple of days. Mercury square Pluto is one of the bigger aspects which can bring cathartic conversations and a real clearing of the air. With the sensitive Cancer Moon, choose your words wisely.

Sunday, April 18th: Moon in Cancer, and another flurry of aspects. There’s five more – including Mercury cazimi (disappearing) into the fires of the Sun. Communications might suffer from ego wars – so watch for that. Also Mars sextile Pluto which syncs up our Drive with our current Evolution.

We begin this week basking in the glow of the lovely Pisces New Moon last Saturday; an uplifting, spiritual and artistic event. We have a fresh start in the realms of music, love, creativity and spiritual connection. This week, the Moon is waxing (growing bigger) each day. Mercury is about to join Neptune, Venus, and the Sun in Pisces, leaving Jupiter and Saturn to soar the airy heights of Aquarius. We’ve spent the last month in Pisces, and we have a new vision of ourselves.

Spring begins on Saturday with the Sun’s entrance into Aries! There’s been a wonderful series of aspects over the past couple of weeks. The only tension is the continuing Saturn square Uranus, which encourages each of us to stabilize our lives so we can progress into the future. This push and pull will take all year to sort out, so embrace the things in life that nurture and revitalize you.

Last Saturday’s Venus conjunct Neptune is with us through the week. It’s a yearly conjunction between the lower and higher vibrations of love. This energy blends with the Sun moving through the last degrees of Pisces – enhancing reflection, artistic expression, and spiritual love. If you’re a musician, artist, filmmaker or writer, make use of this energy over the next few days. Intuitive, psychic and mystical revelations are within our grasp.

Monday, March 15th: Moon in Aries, Mercury into Pisces, and the Sun in the last degrees of Pisces. The week after a New Moon gives us fresh energy, and a feeling of rebirth. Moon in Aries means people (including us) won’t be patient, or listen well. Entertain the idea of patience, and let other people do the “acting out”.

Tuesday, March 16th: Moon in Taurus. The Moon is exalted here, so clarity can arrive regarding emotional troubles. Energy slows down as we move through the day, and authority figures become more stern and stubborn.

Wednesday, March 17th: Moon in Taurus. Slow way down and savor all sensations. No real aspects today, so enjoy the Moon in this pleasurable place. Awakening the five senses is highlighted; take a walk in nature or spend time with animals.

Thursday, March 18th: Moon in Taurus, and Mercury enters Pisces. Our minds get confused in the water’s currents, so turn to mysticism, intuition, and connection with the divine. Mercury is in his detriment here, so no mercurial Magick for the next few weeks.

Friday, March 19th: Moon in Gemini. Moon conjuncts Mars and trines Saturn, bringing an element of seriousness to today’s activities. We will all just want to talk and socialize though. Mind the details.

Saturday, March 20th: Moon in Gemini. SPRING EQUINOX: The Sun enters Aries at 2:27pm Pacific. We begin a new astrological year! It’s the start of everything; today is the TRUE New Year. Think about what you’d like to “grow” this year – either spiritual, material, emotional or mental. If you plant a seed, or start a new habit, it will continue to grow until you reap the results this Fall.

Sunday, March 21st: Moon in Cancer, and Venus into Aries. Venus enters Aries at 7:16am, starting a new cycle around the zodiac. Mars also trines Saturn, making this a great week to focus, get disciplined and put in the hard work. Need to exercise? Eat better? Meditate? This aspect can help you start a new habit. Moon in Cancer and Venus in Aries inspire you to decorate your house.

Welcome to the Year of the Ox! It’s a year of working hard and reestablishing ourselves. This week, the Moon is waxing (growing bigger) each day. We had a fresh start last Thursday with the New Moon in Aquarius, which represents independence, genius, science and intelligence. We still have a stellium of planets (five) in Aquarius until the Sun moves into Pisces this Thursday! We’ve spent the last month in Aquarius, and we’re hopefully committed to a new view of the world.

The main aspects of 2021 come into focus this week. The first square between Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus is exact this Wednesday. Expect tension between the old guard and a new, progressive vision for the world. Surprises and shocking events can arise suddenly. Uranus in Taurus shakes up our values and resources, causing us to rethink how we make money or handle family issues.

If you have any planets near 7 degrees Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius, they will be massively activated this week. I can look this up for you with an astrology reading, which you can book here.

Monday, February 15th: Moon in Aries, and Sun in the last degrees of Aquarius. Fresh energy and a feeling of rebirth. Moon in Aries means the people (including us) won’t be patient, or listen well. Drive cautiously. Hopefully we’ve found a clearer path forward over the last month with the Sun in Aquarius. We can now envision a new life plan.

Tuesday, February 16th: Moon in Aries, moving into Taurus at 7:12pm Pacific. MARDI GRAS. Energy slows down as we move through the day, and authority figures become more stern and stubborn. However, awakening the five senses is highlighted! Take a walk in nature or spend time with animals.

Wednesday, February 17th: Moon in Taurus. Saturn square Uranus is exact at 7 degrees. Try moderation in all activities, and avoid extreme thinking today. The need here is to choose the new way forward in life, and putting all your energy towards it. Anyone longing for how things used to be will remain stuck.

Thursday, February 18th: Moon in Taurus, and the Sun enters Pisces in the pre-dawn hours. We start a new zodiacal season, and the focus turns towards spirituality, music, the sea, intuition, and connection with the divine. With the Moon in Taurus, we are more likely to indulge in sensual delights. The Moon conjuncts Mars which can bring frustration or anger issues. Hold your boundaries.

Friday, February 19th: Moon in Gemini, Venus square Mars. Good day for romance, fun, and play for lovers. Mercury is stopped and ready to turn Direct tomorrow, so take all promises with a grain of salt. Remain in the present.

Saturday, February 20th: Moon in Gemini and Mercury DIRECT! The Moon makes three lovely trines today too, so it’s a feel-good day. Chatty and social, but hold off on important conversations for another week or so.

Sunday, February 21st: Moon VOC in Gemini, and into Cancer at 7:53pm Pacific. We might feel like staying in and working around the house today.

Electric New Moon in Aquarius this week! Allow yourself to have a personal revolution; a complete shift in how you want to operate in the world. Has there been something important to you that’s been on the back burner for a long time? Maybe it’s time to make it a priority. Approach your life in a radical new way! This is the path to adventure and achievement, or understanding what the next phase of your life will be. Aquarius is the sign of vision, and the future, so it’s easier to find the path forward right now.

There are six (!!!) planets in Aquarius this week! That’s A LOT. PLUS a New Moon in Aquarius this Thursday. Whichever house in your chart contains the sign of Aquarius, it’s getting a huge wake up call right now!! You just can’t ignore this corner of your life this month. All of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) will feel the intensity of this shift the entire year.

Monday, February 8th: Moon in Capricorn, and Mercury retrograde crosses backwards over the Sun in the pre dawn hours. This gives a heavy vibe to the beginning of our week. Discipline and hard work are the only ways to get through today.

Tuesday, February 9th: Moon void-of-course in Capricorn all day until 5:20pm Pacific. A void Moon is the time to put energy into things already started, and do what you need to do to get grounded. There could be sudden surprises today, so be open to quick changes – especially around work, health and home. Capricorn brings a serious, focused and ambitious mood. What’s your goal?

Wednesday, February 10th: Moon in Aquarius conjuncts Saturn, Venus and Jupiter in turn throughout the day. This brings emotional integration to any big changes we’re going through right now. Today feels great, with most of us experiencing a lot of energy and excitement. We are in the realm of the New Moon, so pay attention to any revelations you receive from the Universe. Retrograde Mercury squares Mars which can bring tension to communications.

Thursday, February 11th: New Moon in Aquarius in the morning, then goes void-of-course starting at 11:06am Pacific. People will be friendly but slightly detached, so it’s a good day for communications of all kinds. Our minds are expanded with new ideas, and all things are possible today, so don’t hesitate to take action on anything. Clearing the air and speaking your truth should go very well.

Friday, February 12th: Moon in Pisces, and the Year of the Metal Ox begins! No major aspects today, so feel free to be dreamy and floaty like the Piscean Fish. Solitude, music, art, movies and creativity are highlighted today. If you need to have meetings or work through agreements, do it in the morning. Defining things could be difficult with the influence of Neptune, but it’s a great date night since boundaries are open. Retrograde Mercury also conjuncts Venus in the middle of the night, so expect the truth to be spoken.

Saturday, February 13th: Moon in Pisces conjuncts Neptune, and Mars sextiles Neptune! Wonderful vibe. Boundaries are fuzzy and it’s easy to feel lost as our path disappears under our feet. Creative genius is easily accessible. Try not to overindulge in drugs or alcohol though – all this Neptune energy can lead to escapism. Move towards inspiration instead: music, solitude, and communing with the divine.

Sunday, February 14th: Moon in Aries. VALENTINE’S DAY! With the Moon in Aries practice self love – even if you’re in a relationship. Self Love is the best foundation for any and all pursuits in life. Also, Mercury conjunct Jupiter. Stay home, and swim around in your intuitions, ideas and creativity. If you are near a body of water, today is good for a visit.

The Moon is waxing and growing bigger each day. We had a fresh start last Wednesday with the New Moon in Capricorn, which represents ambition, discipline and commitment. There’s a lot of intensity right now, since this New Moon saw the Sun (our Soul’s Light) and Moon (emotions) cross the dark lord Pluto (reformation) last week. This is the area of the sky that influenced the massive changes in 2020. When the Sun crosses this point, it puts our souls in alignment with the upheaval from last year, so we can find our forward path.

The Sun goes into Aquarius this Tuesday, and conjuncts Saturn right away. This brings a serious tone to the month ahead. This week we explore prioritizing ourselves before other people. Commit to what works best for you.

Uranus (new, different approaches) is still stationary Direct at 6 Taurus (resources, money), which means surprises and shocking events can arise suddenly. With Uranus we step outside of the normal, and outside of ourselves, to get a bigger view of the world. Uranus helps us individuate, and to express our genius. Uranus in Taurus shakes up our values, and helps us to release what doesn’t work for us anymore. It can also shake up our resources, causing us to rethink how we make money. Maybe a new career is in order.

Mars at 4 Taurus is creeping towards a conjunction with Uranus on Wednesday’s Inauguration Day. These two powerhouses, joined together, increases the potential for rebellion and violence. I’m glad measures have been taken to protect people. If you have any planets near 6 degrees Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius, they will be massively activated this week. I can look this up for you with an astrology reading, which you can book here.

Jupiter at 6 Aquarius will be in a perfect square to Uranus at 6 Taurus for several weeks. We shake up our value system and elevate our social circle at the same time. We could all experience higher self esteem from this aspect, which opens us to self love. Taurus is the sign of Love. The last time this happened was June 2010, so you can get an idea of how this aspect will effect you if you look back to that time.

Monday, January 18th: Moon in Aries, and Sun in the last degrees of Capricorn. We are doing a deeper integration of the huge changes from last year. We have achieved a new grounding, and the path forward is (hopefully) clearer. We walk forward with a new structure and begin to envision a new life plan. Watch out for head strong behavior and forcing solutions. Courageous, empowered day.

Tuesday, January 19th: Moon in Aries and Sun enters Aquarius! Fresh energy today and a feeling of rebirth. Saturn near the Sun asks us to work hard and commit to our plans. Moon in Aries means the people around us won’t be patient, or listen well, so do you. Drive cautiously.

Wednesday, January 20th: Moon void-of-course in Aries, then into Taurus at 10:56am Pacific. Sun at 0 Aquarius. We start a new zodiacal season, and the focus turns towards the future and our social circles. Mars in exact conjunction with Uranus at 6 Taurus. Stay home if you can because this is a volatile day. This aspect often brings violence or sudden uprisings. The best use of this energy is setting boundaries where needed.

Thursday, January 21st: Moon in Taurus. Things slow waaaay down and we indulge in sensual delights. We become aware of our personal levels of self esteem and self love. Do you love yourself? Truly? Treating yourself like a precious jewel will make you strong. Moon conjuncts Mars and Uranus, connecting us emotionally to yesterday’s events.

Friday, January 22nd: Moon in Taurus, then void at 1:28pm Pacific. No big moves, purchases or agreements after 1:28pm. Be cautious and practice restraint. Otherwise a slow, quiet day. Any activity that awakens the five senses is highlighted. We look at where we need to be and what we need to do with our time. Where’s the best place for you right now, and who is the best company?

Saturday, January 23rd: Moon in Gemini all day. Chatty and social. Mars squares Jupiter asking us to turn a corner regarding our courage, identity, truth or boundaries. Moon trines Saturn, then Jupiter, bringing communication or insight to your future. Sun conjunct Saturn in Aquarius can bring responsibility and work to our evening.

Sunday, January 24th: Moon in Gemini. Sun conjunct Saturn is still in effect so there might be some heaviness. Try to stay chatty, with a day full of socializing and online games.

Week of January 11th: New Moon in Capricorn

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 21 Capricorn
Mercury at 5 Aquarius
Venus at 3 Capricorn
Mars at 2 Taurus
Jupiter at 5 Aquarius
Saturn at 2 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune at 18 Pisces (rulership, strong)

This is not a week to take risks. The Sun is currently in the Capricorn-part of the heavens called “the Covid point”. It’s where the momentous conjunctions happened last year that heralded the pandemic. This will be an intense week with the Sun crossing Pluto, and consequently squaring Mars and Uranus. This means situations and information will arise that underline our evolution, and where to place our focus. A New Moon in Capricorn occurs this Wednesday too!

Uranus is standing still over our heads all week, preparing to go Direct in Taurus on Thursday. On top of that, Uranus will be making several trines and conjunctions with all the planets at the end of Capricorn and beginning of Aquarius. There will be many flashes of insight and messages from the Universe this week, so try to be well rested and observant. Aquarius (ruled by Uranus) is a huge part of the astrological fabric of 2021, and with the Moon, Saturn and Jupiter there, it’s a potent time for signals.

Monday, January 11th: Moon in Capricorn, and Mercury conjunct Jupiter in the early morning. This gives a great vibe to the beginning of our week. Our minds are expanded with new ideas, and conversations lead to better understanding between people. All things are possible today, so don’t hesitate to take action on anything. Clearing the air and speaking your truth should go very well.

Tuesday, January 12th: Moon in Capricorn, and Mercury squares Uranus in Taurus. We’re in the realm of the New Moon, so watch for flashes of insight. There could be sudden surprises today, so be open to quick changes – especially around work, health and home. Capricorn brings a serious, focused and ambitious mood. Ground yourself through working hard, especially on things you’ve been avoiding. Focus on the goal.

Wednesday, January 13th: New Moon in Capricorn, going into Aquarius at 8:44am. Both of these signs are ruled by Saturn, so a serious mood colors the day. Whatever you begin today will have a VERY solid start. Conversely, new projects could be hard to get off the ground. There’s a flurry of aspects today too – eight total! So pay attention to any revelations you receive from the Universe.

Thursday, January 14th: Moon void-of-course ALL DAY in Aquarius. Good to lay low and pursue plans already set in motion. Uranus direct in Taurus at 12:36am brings electricity and a strong urge for independence to the energy of the New Moon. Avoid big purchases or spontaneous actions. People will be friendly but slightly detached, so it’s a good day for communications of all kinds. Focus on what your mind tells you rather than your heart and let your creative genius out to play.

Friday, January 15th: Moon is sill void-of-course in Aquarius, and enters Pisces at 2:17pm. If you need to have meetings or work through agreements, do it in the afternoon – although defining things could be difficult. The Pisces Moon lets us slow down, and focuses us on nurturing our souls. Music, creativity and solitude are the best practices today.

Saturday, January 16th: Moon in Pisces, with harmonious sextiles to Mars, Uranus and Venus. Yesterday’s mood for solitude and communing with the divine continues. Creative genius is easily accessible.

Sunday, January 17th: Moon in Pisces conjuncts Neptune. Boundaries are hard to define and it’s easy to feel a little lost as the path forward disappears under our feet. Also, Jupiter square Uranus is exact, and Mars conjuncts Uranus tomorrow, Jan 20th. This is an especially powerful pair of squares, with potential for violence. Stay home, and swim around your intuitions, ideas and creativity. If you are near a body of water, today is good for a visit.

Week of December 21st: Winter Solstice

Tonight, Sunday, December 20th, 2020 is Winter Solstice eve. It is the longest night of the year. Tomorrow morning at dawn, 7:21am Pacific, the Sun rises on the new year. This is because the days grow longer from this point on until the climax at the longest day on June 21st, 2021. Important to think about what you’d like to “grow” in the New Year. Christmas tree lights symbolize finding hope in times of darkness.

That’s the main undercurrent of what’s happening right now: REBIRTH. There’s also the Great Conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter at 0 Aquarius, which is a huge event. lt underlines this rebirth of the Sun. Saturn has been in Capricorn, it’s natural home, for the last 2.5 years, exposing materialism, lack of integrity, and the misuse of power. With Saturn’s entrance into Aquarius, our society will be completely transformed, perhaps leaning towards the promised utopia of Aquarius.

We’re already experiencing some of this shift in the form of lockdowns – Saturn limiting our social (Aquarius) connections. Also, working remotely (Saturn) online (Aquarius). 

There’s also aspects happening that are resetting us for 2021:

  1. Mercury conjunct the Sun (combust) at 0 Capricorn.
  2. Pluto at 23 Capricorn exactly square Mars (which is conjunct Eris at 23 Aries).
  3. Week starts with the Moon at 23 Pisces.
  4. The Saturn/Jupiter conjunction enters a square to Uranus in Taurus, and it will be in effect through 2022. 

These squares between these specific planets can bring fighting and conflict, so be cautious in the world.

Monday, December 21st: Moon void in Pisces, into Aries at 2:32pm Pacific. WINTER SOLSTICE. Sun enters Capricorn at 2am Pacific. This morning’s sunrise sees the rebirth of the Sun. This is one of the most magical days of the year. Immerse yourself in the wonderful, fresh energies alive in the air today. The Sky King (Jupiter) spreads his wings (Aquarius) and escapes the Earth (Capricorn). All of the cooped-up, earthbound energy of the last two years is shaken off, and we have a new path before us of freedom.

Tuesday, December 22nd: Moon in Aries adds to the feeling of rebirth! Put plans into action, but be aware people won’t be all that patient, or listen well. Drive cautiously.

Wednesday, December 23rd: Moon in Aries, but void-of-course at 2:51pm Pacific. Try to avoid signing anything or having important conversations during a void Moon. This is a volatile day, since the Moon conjuncts Mars and Black Moon Lilith, and Mars square Pluto is exact. Tests might come up around your identity. The best use of this energy is setting boundaries where needed, but watch out for irritation and anger. Today begins the final squares of Mars/Eris to Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter. Tempers will be testy through February 2021. Be cautious driving.

Thursday, December 24th: Christmas Eve. Moon in Taurus. Things slow waaaay down today and we indulge in sensual delights. Although you may be stuck at home and away from your families this year, get yourself an excellent dinner. Taurus loves food.

Friday, December 25th: Christmas Day. Moon in Taurus. Slow, quiet day. Any activity that awakens the five senses is highlighted. Get outside today and appreciate nature.

Saturday, December 26th: Moon void-of-course at the end of Taurus all day, and then into Gemini at 3:33pm Pacific. Energy picks up as the Moon trines the lovely Saturn/Jupiter conjunction in Aquarius, so expect some communication or insight into your future path.

Sunday, December 27th: Moon in Gemini. Very chatty day full of socializing and online purchases. We are two days from a Full Moon in Cancer, so walk cautiously around people’s feelings.

A powerful New Moon occurred Monday, just after sunrise on the West Coast.
The Sun (Soul), Moon (emotions), Mercury (mind) and the South Node (the past), are all exact at 23 Sagittarius, which gives us a total Solar Eclipse. This is an opportunity for a final release from the major shedding of 2020. This eclipse heralds the closing of a chapter, and the start of something new. Since it’s occurring in Sagittarius, this new path has a lot to do with our beliefs, aspirations, and the Big Picture of our lives.

It’s interesting that we’re wrapping up the year in the sign of Sagittarius, which represents our beliefs and personal truths, and we haven’t known WHAT to believe this year. Until our society reaches stability again, it’s up to us to do the work, research facts, and find the truth. This New Moon solar eclipse tomorrow morning, is occurring with the south node (the past), which represents us releasing and moving past an old story we have about ourselves and the world. Sagittarius is The Archer, so aim, pull your arrow back, and let it fly!

There’s also the momentous conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn at 0 Aquarius on Dec. 21st – the Winter Solstice! Many people are calling it the “Great Conjunction,” because it will form one huge, bright star in the sky. The truth is, it’s already happening and you can see it now, it just becomes exact on Dec. 21st. This is another aspect that puts an end to 2020 and starts us on a new path, and it’s influencing this whole month.

Monday, December 14th: Total Solar Eclipse/New Moon at 23 Sagittarius at 8:17am Pacific, THEN the moon goes void-of-course ALL DAY until 7:35pm Pacific! Eek! Avoid risk-taking, negotiation or big purchases during a void-of-course Moon. There’s going to be intensity today, but the energy is towards a rebirth. Today is a powerful new beginning for any corner of your life. Whatever is started this week will probably develop over the next six months, but the initiating spark is now. Spend some time outside to clear your mind. Excellent day to read philosophy, or spend your energy on being wildly romantic or creative 🙂

Tuesday, December 15th: Moon in Capricorn, Venus into Sagittarius and Chiron direct. The solar eclipse is still in effect, but Capricorn brings a serious, focused and ambitious mood. You can probably put plans in motion today. Ground yourself through working hard, especially on things you’ve been avoiding. Focus on the goal. Chiron direct brings fresh energy towards healing.

Wednesday, December 16th: Moon in Capricorn, and Saturn into Aquarius in the evening, which brings a new, airy energy into our lives. This ingress into Aquarius will heavily influence 2021 – for the better. Moon approaches the “Big three” in Capricorn i.e. Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn. Heaviness can result and you may not feel like doing a lot, which is fine. Do not demand anything from authority figures today because they will be resistant. Capricorn also brings certainty.

Thursday, December 17th: Moon in Aquarius. There could be some flashes of the future today, so watch for signs. Aquarius is a huge part of the astrological fabric of 2021, and with the Moon, Saturn and soon Jupiter arriving there it’s a potent time for signals. People will be friendly but slightly detached, so it’s a good day for communications of all kinds. Focus on what your mind tells you rather than your heart. Let your creative genius out to play.

Friday, December 18th: Moon in Aquarius. Sun joins the Galactic Center today, so it’s easier to communicate with the universe, and the God of your heart. If you need to have meetings or work through agreements, do it in the morning. Remember to focus on balance and win-win resolutions.

Saturday, December 19th: Moon in Pisces and Jupiter into Aquarius. This is a real, positive change for Jupiter! The planet is moving out of Capricorn and it’s detriment and becomes electrified in the sign of the Water Bearer. Expansion, philosophy, truth, justice and honor are much more available to all of us!

Sunday, December 20th: Moon in Pisces and Mercury into Capricorn. Swim around your intuitions, ideas and creativity. With Mercury in Capricorn for the next month, it’s a great time for artists and writers to get organized, study, and work hard. Enjoy the day.

We are in the dark of the Moon this week, so just take it easy and rest. The Moon is waning until next Monday, December 14th, when we have a New Moon Solar eclipse at 23 Sagittarius.

We are in between eclipses – between the lunar eclipse in Gemini on Nov. 30th, and the upcoming solar eclipse next Monday. We are in touch with our subconscious and what we need on a deep level, as well as wrestling with what we believe. Since the Moon is balsamic or waning this week, it’s a time of “wrapping things up” and endings… which includes the end of this volatile year 2020.

We’ve all been forced to reevaluate our lives this year in the face of the massive societal changes brought about by the pandemic. The world has been restructured, along with our identities. Society has been torn down, old systems have been ripped out, and we are letting go of old, toxic, moldy, dead energies. Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter have influenced this upheaval by going through various conjunctions in the sign of the “boardroom” – Capricorn. We are releasing the “traditional”, the established and the conventional for a future that (hopefully) benefits everyone.

This month, we’re coming up to the Winter Solstice and the Sun’s entrance into Capricorn on December 21st. On the same day, there’s a paradigm shift when Jupiter and Saturn have an exact conjunction at 0 Aquarius. This happens every 20 years and it’s a big deal. It’s in Aquarius too – which sets our path on a lighter, airier trajectory. We will turn a corner for the better at the end of December, and wave goodbye to the trauma and heartbreak of this year. In 2021 we begin to rebuild ourselves up in a new way.

While Jupiter can indicate success, justice, and expansion, in essence Jupiter amplifies. Here Jupiter amplifies Saturn, which deals with limits, regulations, and control issues. What’s the best use of this conjunction? Get organized, because discipline and responsibility will be a strong influence. Let go of bad habits and cultivate good ones.

Monday, December 7th: Moon in Virgo wants us to start a new diet and exercise routine; perhaps rearrange the house so it’s more efficient. But with Mercury currently in Sagittarius, we might want to read all day instead.

Tuesday, December 8th: Moon into Libra at 4pm Pacific brings a taste of romance to our day. If you need to talk to your boss, or hammer out agreements, today and tomorrow are PERFECT for it.

Wednesday, December 9th: Moon in Libra. Sociability, communication and fairness. If something in your life feels out of balance, you can correct it now.

Thursday, December 10th: Moon in Libra all day, then into Scorpio at 6pm Pacific. The mood of the day could be heavy, and people might be focused on their own trajectories, so you focus on your path.

Friday, December 11th: Moon in Scorpio (informed by Mars in Aries). Do Magick! Expect occult experiences and deep conversations with people. Sexy date night if you can meet in person.

Saturday, December 12th: Moon in Scorpio, then into Sagittarius at 6:39pm Pacific. Have outside adventures today! Put energy towards your goals.

Sunday, December 13th: We are in the orb of the New Moon solar eclipse in Sagittarius, tomorrow morning (Monday) at 8:17am. Prepare for a new beginning.

The Sun continues it’s travels through the sign of Sagittarius, the Archer. We are renovating our beliefs, and aligning ourselves with new meaning and purpose. Monday night, we had a Full Moon Eclipse at 8 Gemini at 1:30am Pacific. This week is an opportunity for a breakthrough – for something to be released that no longer fits our forward path. If you have any planets near 8 degrees Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces or Virgo, you might experience some major changes in the next couple of months.

Neptune stationed Direct (forward) last Saturday, but is standing still – and is strong – until mid December. During the retrograde of the last few months, we have confronted an old, karmic delusion that’s been holding us back from being present with ourselves. Now we’re letting it go. We are turning forward to a new way of being in the world.

There’s two directions in a Neptune transit: you can reconnect with your soul through inspiration, spirituality, music or creativity, or you can escape through alcohol, drugs and fantasy. Either way will lead you further down the road to self knowledge. Neptune heals us, and takes us to the heights of imagination. We are highly sensitive and attuned to invisible currents right now, so being an open, receptive vehicle for revelations is a good use of this time. If you are on a spiritual path, new worlds could appear; if you’re an artist, tarot reader, or psychic, this is a powerful divinatory time. Neptune also rules martyrdom, service, charity, healing, and spiritual insight.

Monday, November 30th: Full Moon Eclipse at 8 Gemini. Something from June comes to fruition, and either overcomes a hurdle, or ends. With an eclipse, we can see things within ourselves that have been a blind spot, so it’s an illuminating Moon for purging and healing our shadow sides. Gemini is VERY chatty and social, but using remote communications might be the safest platform. With Neptune standing still, pursue and embrace facts. We are facing the shadow and the unknown.

Tuesday, December 1st: Moon void-of-course in Gemini all day! Mercury enters Sagittarius (it’s detriment) at 11:51am Pacific. Mercury is weakened and overwhelmed in it’s detriment for the next several weeks. Clarity and decisiveness become lost in Sagittarian philosophy and “big picture” mind frames. Getting outside and going on solitary adventures will clear your head.

Wednesday, December 2nd: Moon VOC in Gemini until 1:45pm Pacific. The Cancer Moon in the evening will bring emotions, sensitivity and dreaminess to the rest of the week. Not a good night for serious discussions, avoid social complications.

Thursday, December 3rd: Moon in Cancer is part of a big Water trine today. Moon in Cancer trines Venus at 14 Scorpio, then Neptune at 18 Pisces. It’s a deliciously creative day, so let poetic, artistic inspirations flow. Psychic intuitiveness runs high, and romance is in the air. People will be sensitive today, so allow for people’s feelings.

Friday, December 4th: Moon in Leo. Restlessness today and possible questioning of the future. Try and stay in the present and deal with things as they arise. Information about your future comes up in the evening. It’s a great day to find authenticity with people. Organize your time and practice those internal boundaries.

Saturday, December 5th: Moon in Leo, and goes void at 2:28pm. Get creative! Venus trines Neptune at 18 degrees Scorpio and Pisces respectively. This brings beauty and true inspiration to art and romance. Beautiful aspect that highlights romantic passion, inspiration, and harmonizing within groups. If you are creative, psychic, inclined to the mystical, spiritual religious and metaphysical this week and next, and especially next weekend could be a wonderful time. Be kind to the feminine in your life. Enjoy some beautiful art and appreciate the wonders of nature going on all around us. Fall in love again with the mystery of life.

Sunday, December 6th: Moon in Virgo. We’ve turned a spiritual corner over the last week. We end this week with Mars moving faster, and everything in our lives moving forward in a positive way.
