As above, so below.
As without, so within.
When we look “out there”, it reflects and mirrors what’s within, which is one reason I like to look at astrology. The Sun is in Libra now, we had a New Moon yesterday, and the Fall Equinox last week. The metaphoric seeds we planted last March have been ripening all year, and we harvest them now. There are aspects this week that will give us real opportunities to change our world for the better.

Sunday’s New Moon in Libra is unfolding this week, so there will be continued developments in partnerships, agreements, romance and diplomacy. Practice the art of balance. The 4th quarter starts next Saturday. This is Libra season, so take some time to reflect on your relationships, and how you’d like the upcoming Moon cycle to go. If you need a personal reading on how this Libra cycle will affect you, book a short reading with me here for $45.

Thursday, September 29th: Moon in Scorpio goes void-of-course at 2:20pm Pacific for the rest of the day, so get your important stuff done in the morning. Also, Venus enters Libra which is her happy place. The planet of Love is home here, and can fully express her grace, manners, wittiness, and power. Women’s energies will be strong for the next month, and we can make incredible progress especially with creativity.

Friday, September 30th: Moon in Sagittarius. Life is imaginative and dreamy today as Venus opposes Neptune. This aspect happens once every 18 months and can indicate wild imagination and/or delusion in the arenas of art and romance. It’s on the Virgo-Pisces axis so we can also access inspiration and compassion. Remember your dreams! This is a great night to meet someone and share lovely moments, just watch out for fantasies taking over the reality.

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 29th

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 6 Virgo
Mercury DIRECT at 3 Libra
Venus at 22 Leo
Mars at 5 Gemini
Jupiter RETROGRADE at 7 Aries
Saturn RETROGRADE at 20 Aquarius (rulership)
Uranus RETROGRADE at 18 Taurus
Neptune RETROGRADE 24 Pisces (rulership)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 26 Capricorn
North Node at 15 Taurus

There was a New Moon in Virgo on Saturday which continues to unfold this week. 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 in Virgo, our minds are at their peak and we can be decisive. The decisions you make now determine your future path. It’s always lucky to start a week in the darkness of a New Moon, and the promise of a new beginning.

Venus in Leo opposed Saturn in Aquarius on Sunday, and the energy of this aspect continues all week. It means an enormous amount of creative energy could be held back or limited by the expectations of other people. Don’t feel discouraged or negative, just be in the present. Saturn encourages us to be patient with our ideas, and give them time to grow. Practice and simplification are the two things to focus on this week.

Virgo is the High Priestess of Reality, and asks us to take care of our physical body. What can you do to support your health and be stronger? Virgo wants to analyze, discriminate and assimilate; it’s the sign of health, work, and being of service. We need to take care of ourselves and each other.

Friday, September 2nd: Moon void-of-course in Scorpio, enters Sagittarius at 3:39pm Pacific. The mood will lighten throughout the day, and tonight is all about having fun. This is a great night for parties or to see a show.

Saturday, September 3rd: Moon in Sagittarius – its a day of adventure. Try something you’ve never done before, or visit a new place. Moon sextiles Saturn, 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.

Sunday, September 4th: Moon in Sagittarius. Also, Venus enters Virgo around 9pm Pacific, which means Venus is officially weakened (in her Fall) for the month of September. This could be a challenging time for women, relationships and art creation. Be present with yourself and stop any self critical, perfectionist thoughts as soon as they show up. On the good side, Venus in Virgo will enhance the Sun’s influence here, increasing our interest in organizing, editing, exercising, studying and writing.

Each of us is a unique person, and our uniqueness wants to shine. We begin this week with the New Moon at 5 Leo that occurred Thursday, and continues to unfold this week. 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; it’s a week to roar like a lion.

Monday and Tuesday we had the exact conjunction of Mars, the North Node of the Moon, AND Uranus, which symbolizes a HUGE breakthrough. This hasn’t happened in at least 84 years, and will create a pivotal moment for each of us. Its about birthing your IDEAL SELF: who you want to be, who you think you are – the BEST version of yourself. Uranus is visionary, the North Node is our future, and Mars gives us drive and ambition. This is happening in the sign of Taurus, which is self sufficient, independent, grounded, fertile, sensuous, and luxurious. Expect a new vision of life ahead that creates stability and awakens the senses.

Some astrologers are worried this could mean Uranus causing drama and issues regarding the supply chain, land ownership, crops, cattle, and money. Let’s hope it’s more on the visionary side of things. If you have any planets near 19 Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius, this is a HUGE moment for you that could send you in another direction. If you want a brief reading on how this will effect your chart, you can book one here.

Thursday, August 4th: Moon in Scorpio and Mercury freshly in Virgo. Our minds are at their sharpest for the next few weeks. It’s the perfect time to make some solid decisions. A Scorpio Moon is a good time to figure out what your deepest needs are and how to fulfill them. Nurture your soul and listen.

Friday, August 5th: Moon in Scorpio enters her 2nd quarter. The Scorpio Moon also opposes all the craziness with Mars and Uranus on the other side of the sky in Taurus. The best way to handle it? Roll up our sleeves and get to work. We will be driven today, and can make solid progress where we focus our attention. Keep the other person’s perspective in mind before taking action.

Week of July 25th

Sun at 2 Leo
Mercury DIRECT at 10 Leo
Venus at 8 Cancer
Mars at 12 Taurus
Jupiter at 9 Aries
Saturn RETROGRADE at 23 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune RETROGRADE 25 Pisces (rulership)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 27 Capricorn
North Node at 18 Taurus

The Sun moved into Leo last Friday, entering his home kingdom. The Sun is in his natural element in Leo, and shines his brightest! Now is the time to do Sun magick if you have the inclination. Focus on leadership and lead with you heart. Helping other people shine, is the best use of this energy. This week we are still in the 4th quarter of the Moon. We rest and wrap things up, all in preparation for the rebirth of the New Moon in Leo this Thursday.

Leo is our 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.

There’s a lot of big aspects this week. Uranus and the Moon’s North Node (destiny) are conjunct at 18° Taurus on Tuesday, which really stirs things up and creates new opportunities for the path forward. Many unexpected developments and events can pop up out of nowhere, sending you in a different direction. Mercury square Mars can raise tensions and road rage, so be calm while driving. And further out, Saturn is moving towards another square with Uranus. It’s happening now, but will be exact on October 23rd and will reignite some of the tensions from last year.

Wednesday, July 27th: Moon in Cancer goes void at 5:54pm Pacific, so stay home tonight and spoil yourself. With Jupiter standing still in the sky preparing to go retrograde tomorrow, indulgences abound. Go to the spa and eat whatever you want. Also today, Mercury in Leo trines Chiron-the-healer in Aries. There could be information, results or progress concerning a mental, emotional or physical health issue. Your inner voice is talking to you all the time, letting you know what you need.

Thursday, July 28th: New Moon in Leo at 10:55am Pacific indicates the start of a new lunar cycle. Let your creativity wander alongside your imagination. Focus on you, because you have gold to share. You have a rare and intrinsic quality that no one else has on the planet! Also, Jupiter Retrograde begins! Is life sending you in a new direction? Embrace it and go with the flow. Revelations abound.

Week of July 6th

Sun at 13 Cancer
Mercury DIRECT at 29 Gemini
Venus at 13 Gemini

Jupiter at 7 Aries
Saturn RETROGRADE at 24 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune at 25 Pisces (rulership)

This week the Moon is waxing (growing bigger). We had a New Moon in Cancer last week, which is the Moon’s natural home, and one of the most personal signs of the zodiac. Cancer symbolizes our deep, emotional, inner worlds – the parts we don’t let everyone see – along with our homes and security. The focus is on our personal circumstances, emotional needs and true feelings. The sign of Cancer is created from the primordial waters that gestate and nurture new life, and healing the inner child is paramount.

The New Moon last Tuesday is really powerful BECAUSE it’s so personal. This is our roots, where we come from, our relationships with our mothers, our genes, DNA, psychological traumas, etc. It’s our annual chance to start anew with healing ourselves and refreshing the foundation of our lives BASED on this self healing. When we do this healing, we’re able to let more love and friendship into our lives. More reality. We become happier and deeply fulfilled. It’s a really big deal. Also, look at where you’ve taken on the attitudes and opinions of people around you – sometimes without being aware of where the feelings are coming from.

Thursday, July 7th: Moon in Libra goes void at 6:00pm Pacific, then trines Saturn and squares Pluto. These aspects can bring an edge to yesterday’s developments. The best way through it, is to focus, concentrate, and work hard. Also take an objective view of your evolution and see if there’s a more efficient path.

Week of June 27th: New Moon in Cancer

Sun at 8 Cancer
Mercury DIRECT at 14 Gemini
Venus at 3 Gemini (rulership)
Mars at 23 Aries (rulership)
Jupiter at 7 Aries
Saturn RETROGRADE at 24 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune at 25 Pisces (rulership)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 27 Capricorn
North Node at 21 Taurus

We begin this week on the cusp of a New Moon at 7 Cancer on Tuesday. The eclipses are behind us, and it’s interesting to notice where our lives and attitudes have changed over the Spring. We have an opportunity to release things that don’t fit into our new, emotional way of being (i.e. Sun in Cancer) right now. The New Moon in Cancer is the sweetest, most sensitive moon of the year, however this one is exactly conjunct Black Moon Lilith, so there’s an edge of assertiveness, power, and demand of equality.

Neptune stations retrograde in the middle of the night on Monday/Tuesday, enhancing the watery, intuitive, fertile nature of the New Moon. Neptune can add confusion, a sense of the surreal, wild dreams, and a desire to escape your life. You have to walk through it, just surrender to any feelings coming up this week. Neptune also rules propaganda and fantasies, so don’t believe everything you see or hear.

The last time Neptune was in this part of the sky was 1865. Think of everything that has happened since then! We had The Civil War, which is scary considering how divided our country is nowadays. Slavery was outlawed, although we still haven’t achieved true equality. Theosophy and Western Hermeticism came into existence. The art world exploded with the groundbreaking talents of Picasso, van Gogh, Monet, Matisse, and Gauguin. We had the birth of psychology with Freud and Jung. Plus the domination of photography, television, cinema, technology and the internet. Fascinating to think what might be ahead of us.

Also this week, Mars in Aries is marching resolutely to his square with Pluto in Capricorn on Friday. This is a tense and volatile aspect that brings aggression and violence. It raises anger, and brings drama, struggles with authority, and ego battles. There’s an urgent need for change. If we’ve been stuck in power struggles with someone, it is plainly obvious this week. This can cause more flare ups between people in our divided world, so be careful out there.

Tuesday, June 28th: Moon in Cancer, New Moon at 7:52pm Pacific. Neptune in Pisces stations retrograde at 1:00am, adding to the watery, creative atmosphere. The tarot card for today is the Ace of Cups; we are emotionally reborn. Visit a pool, lake, river, or ocean. The imagination can be stronger than usual with this new moon. Creativity is heightened, and artists and musicians have breakthroughs. Time to start new projects! With the sensitive Cancer Moon, choose your words wisely. Celebrate your home life, animals, and your “new” chosen family of friends.

This week the Moon is waxing (growing bigger) each day, building up to a Full Moon in Sagittarius next Tuesday, June 14th. The Sun moves through the last degrees of Gemini, entering Cancer on the SUMMER SOLSTICE, Tuesday, June 21st.

Saturn (discipline, responsibility) hangs over this week. The planet of Karma is stopped in the sky since turning retrograde yesterday, June 4th. This brings added gravity to the week ahead. This planet grinds us down, turns us into something useful, and makes us take care of things we’ve been avoiding. Between now and October, Saturn is asking you to reflect on the structures and limitations of your life – are they serving you?  What changes can you make, especially regarding your future (Saturn in Aquarius)?

Saturn represents our stability, and brings up themes around structure, time, karma, and authority. Saturn rules Aquarius, so this retrograde brings up battles between progressive and traditional elements. Aquarius represents our need to evolve on both a collective and personal level. Focus on solidifying the foundations of your life; it’s the perfect time to question your way of living and working.

Monday, June 6th: Moon in Virgo trines Venus and Mars bringing harmony between the sexes. This is a great way to start the week. We are feeling kind, loving, and inspired. Virgo Moon means organize, exercise and clear the clutter.

Tuesday, June 7th: Moon in Virgo enters her 2nd quarter. No major aspects, just the Moon squaring the Sun, and then trining Uranus over in Taurus. This can bring volatility in the stock market and surprises (good ones) at work. The house cleaning continues… there’s some big aspects coming in a few days, so don’t let the heavy Saturn energy weigh you down.

Wednesday, June 8th: Moon in Libra brings the balance today. Hopefully we’re feeling more centered after the Moon in Virgo/Saturn station vibe of the last two days. The Libra Moon opposes Jupiter and Mars in Aries, so watch for an upsurge in emotion that could bring conflict with people around you. Most of us want to connect with like-minded friends.

Thursday, June 9th: Moon in Libra trines the Sun today. Good for communication, traveling and negotiating. Gemini season is the month to talk, write, play, socialize and travel. If you have studies or writing to do, now is the time! There’s electricity in the air for the next few days.

Friday, June 10th: Moon goes void in Libra at 10:36am, then into Scorpio at 3:41pm Pacific. The Scorpio Moon adds a serious edge to the evening. Be aware of your surroundings and stay safe. Venus is already in a conjunction with Uranus, which brings unexpected, shocking events to social situations, and the Moon is unable to express herself in Scorpio. Emotions could be bottled up and explode. On top of that, Mercury trines Pluto at 2:21 pm. This can bring transformative conversations to relationships.

Saturday, June 11th: Moon in Scorpio, and Venus conjuncts Uranus in Taurus at 3:58pm. You might hear from people you haven’t spoken to in a long time. This aspect is also great for accessing artistic genius and revolutionary creativity. Focus on people and situations that inspire you, but watch for sudden changes in moods too.

Sunday, June 12th: Moon in Scorpio moves into Sagittarius at 3:30pm Pacific. The mood is much lighter today, and we explore adventures and fun. We are also under the influence of the Full Moon coming Tuesday, which will shift our inner truths and life perspective.

We begin this week with a New Moon at 10 Gemini on Monday! Watch for the dawn, and a beautiful sunrise. Every New Moon is a new beginning, and this one brings a change in attitude. The urge to get out and socialize will be strong, but a square with Saturn asks us to keep our boundaries and practice self discipline too. This New Moon is great for activities requiring mental fortitude – studying, analysis, meditation and organization are all highlighted this week. Focus on simplifying your life.

Mercury has stopped still in the skies, preparing to go Direct on Friday, while Saturn has also stopped still, preparing to go retrograde on Saturday. They are also in a square for the next two weeks. At the same time, Retrograde Mercury is trining Pluto, so there’s a serious and transformational vibe. There could be struggles, tests, limitations, and issues with timing, especially around communication. Be thoughtful and speak sincerely.

Pluto will move into Aquarius on March 23, 2023, so this is the last year of Pluto in Capricorn! It will go back into Capricorn until Nov 19, 2024 when it will spend over a decade in Aquarius. My hope is that the themes of Aquarius – humanity, liberation, genius and forward thinking – will make a positive change with the problems in our society.

Monday, May 30th: New Moon at 10 Gemini in the pre dawn hours brings new options into our live. We are drawn to sociability, sharing and TALKING, however Mercury, Gemini’s ruler, is currently retrograde. We are redoing things, renegotiating agreements. The truth could come out today.

Tuesday, May 31st: Moon in Gemini goes void-of-course at 1:10pm Pacific for the rest of the day, so do important stuff in the morning. Moon trines Saturn in the evening which can bring heavy conversations. We have no problem working hard on projects that require mental effort.

Wednesday, June 1st: Moon in Cancer conjuncts Black Moon Lilith, so solitude is favored. Take time out today and focus on nurturing yourself. Your needs come first.

Thursday, June 2nd: Moon in Cancer on a Thursday is auspicious! There are no other aspects, and it’s a quiet day with the lovely Cancerian energy. Home life and domestic activities are the best use of this Moon, and with Mercury and Saturn stationing, organization gets a boost.

Friday, June 3rd: Moon Cancer moves into Leo at 11:38am, and everyone wants the limelight. Give yourself some love. When the Moon moves from Cancer to Leo, egos can be VERY sensitive, so step carefully around people’s feelings today. Mercury goes Direct at 26 Taurus early in the morning, but will take several days to pick up speed. Living in the present, in a mindful way, is the best way forward.

Saturday, June 4th: Moon in Leo opposes Saturn, and emotions might get heavy. Saturn turns stationary retrograde in the middle of the night. Things can appear unstable, but don’t worry just take action on what you have control over. We are going back over ground we’ve already covered, so it’s an opportunity to recheck your foundation and steps.

Sunday, June 5th: Moon in Leo goes void at 4:12pm Pacific, and opposes Saturn in the evening. This can exacerbate the issues of this week. No other aspects. It’s a great evening to see performances, attend parties or art gatherings.

As above, so below.
As without, so within.
When we look “out there”, it reflects and mirrors what’s within, which is one reason I like to look at astrology. The Sun enters Taurus at 7:24pm Pacific on Tuesday, and we enter the heart of Spring. The metaphoric seeds we plant now will continue to grow throughout the year ahead. Both the Full Moon last Saturday, and the Sun’s entry into Taurus, occur in square to Pluto in Capricorn. It is likely that during these days there will be an undercurrent of stubbornness and insensitivity, so remember its temporary.

Saturday’s Full Moon in Libra is still unfolding this week, so there will be continued developments with any issues you are facing right now. The 4th quarter starts next Saturday. This is Taurus season, so take some time to reflect on how you’d like the upcoming Moon cycle to go. If you need a personal reading on how this Taurus cycle will affect you, book a short reading with me here for $45.

Monday, April 18th: Moon in Scorpio goes void around 5pm, then into Sagittarius at 8:16pm. Jupiter is still close to Neptune in Pisces, and today the Moon comes along in Scorpio and trines them, bringing joyful, expansive moods and communications. Also today, Venus sextile Uranus is exact in the middle of the night. This can show up as enlightening conversations with lovers and friends. Expect breakthroughs. The biggie today is the Sun square Pluto in the morning. There’s some action you need to take regarding your evolution. Perhaps some toxic energy needs to be released in order for you to progress. Today is transformative and healing is favored; take an unwavering view of your shadow side.

Tuesday, April 19th: Moon in Sagittarius all day, and the Sun leaves Aries for Taurus at 7:24pm Pacific! Embrace the rebirth of the Spring season. With Taurus we settle into earthly comforts, luxury, romance and good food. Also, Mars trines Lilith (0 Cancer) at 1 degree Pisces. This aspect activates women, self esteem and boundaries. This week we are fearless.

Wednesday, April 20th: Moon void-of-course in Sagittarius ALL DAY!!! She enters Capricorn at 8:52pm Pacific. We start with an optimistic mood, but it withers as we move towards the heaviness of Capricorn and Saturn. Look at your goals and aim for your highest ideals. The rest of this week is about hard work and earned rewards.

Thursday, April 21st: Moon in Capricorn all day. Drives, ambition, and tenacity are in alignment, there’s no big aspects, just lots of hard work. Do not seek concessions from authority figures – leave that until next week. From Capricorn, we build our lives from a solid foundation. Take stock of your life.

Friday, April 22nd: Moon in Capricorn enters her 4th quarter, and we are in the dark of the Moon. Now is the time for solitude, introspection, and rest. This Moon ushers us into a working weekend. There could be some unexpected heaviness around social events tonight. Things may be hard to get off the ground. The only way forward today is to focus.

Saturday, April 23rd: No exact aspects so it’s a quiet day. Moon in Aquarius on a Saturday, is GREAT for saturnian Magick, i.e. discipline, structure and commitment. Saturn represents our stability, and brings up themes of time, karma, and authority. 

Sunday, April 24th: Moon in Aquarius, goes void-of-course at 5:33pm Pacific. Mercury (Taurus) squares Saturn (Aquarius) in the morning. This aspect can indicate negative thinking, arguments with authorities, or problems with mental limitations. We have the chance to upgrade our thinking and the worn out structures of our habits and patterns.
