The Sun moved into Virgo on Sunday, heralding the beginning of harvest season! We also had a Full Moon at the tail end of Aquarius. Something in your life is coming to a close, and something is starting – and it’s making you stretch out of your comfort zone. The transition from Leo to Virgo is profound. With the Sun in Leo, we reveled in our true identity, and practiced new ways of expressing it to the world; now with Virgo we get to work.

Mars in Virgo had a friendly trine to Uranus in Taurus on Sunday around midnight, and will continue all week. What are the ways you can liberate your drive, so you can manifest your Will on the world? Mars wants us to TAKE ACTION to find freedom, and defend our future (Uranus). Be open to pathways showing up that are outside of the norm.

Monday, August 23rd: Moon in Pisces opposes Mars and Mercury in Virgo today, emotionally integrating events of last week. We’re still deep in the gravity of yesterday’s Full Moon in Aquarius/Pisces, and we might see more unfolding developments. Venus trine Saturn is exact in the pre-dawn hours, helping us achieve discipline in our artistic ambitions. Set necessary limits and get to work. The issue of commitment may come up in relationships.

Tuesday, August 24th: Moon in Pisces is void until entering Aries at noon Pacific time. Moon in Aries enhances the mood of “Mars Tuesday”, but Mars itself is SO unhappy over in Virgo. Not a great day for Mars magick. We’re going to have to wait a couple of months for him to enter Scorpio. Also today, Mercury in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces, bringing up confusion in communications. Watch the misinformation expand it’s reach today, but don’t engage; focus on art instead.

Wednesday, August 25th: Moon in Aries opposes Venus in Libra, which can impact relationships and bring up some scuffles. Watch your temper. With Moon in Aries, keep calm while driving, or dealing with insecure, headstrong people. There’s a feeling of rebirth today, so be in tune with what you’re birthing in your life. Mercury is SO HAPPY in Virgo right now, so today is fabulous for Air Magick of any kind.

Thursday, August 26th: Moon in Aries goes void-of-course at 2:14pm Pacific for several hours – entering Taurus at 9:27pm. Look out. Don’t take any risks, and give up reasoning with stubborn people. Hard to get concessions from anyone today. In the morning, Mercury in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn, which makes us want deep, meaningful communications. Wait until tomorrow. Or even next week.

Friday, August 27th: Moon in Taurus (EXALTED) with Venus in Libra (in RULERSHIP)? Yep, this is a FANTASTIC day for Venus Magick. Anyone can burn a green candle to attract money, pink for friends and red for passionate love. Get some fresh flowers in your house and wear nice clothes. Moon squaring Saturn in the afternoon means we can deal with reality and wrap up work by dinnertime. In the evening, merge with the sensual side of Taurus, and indulge yourself in romance, food, or nature.

Saturday, August 28th: Moon in Taurus conjuncts Uranus and trines Mars in Virgo. The lovely, romantic vibe continues, but this time, expect the unexpected. Projects might need adjustment. Also, Venus is inconjunct with Uranus, which brings the desire for independence and freedom. Let yourself have the time or space you need today, in order to reconnect with who you are and what you want.

Sunday, August 29th: Moon goes into Gemini at 9:42am, and later squares Jupiter and trines Mercury. This enhances the lightning-fast-communication vibe of the Gemini Moon. We want to socialize and talk to everyone. THEN Mercury enters Libra at 10:10pm, bringing a need for harmony and balance to our relationships.

The Sun moved into Leo last Thursday, 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. Mercury is zooming through the last degrees of Cancer, and joins the Sun in Leo this coming Tuesday. This will be a great change for all of us. Our minds have been water logged with Cancerian feelings, sensitivities and insecurities. In Leo, Mercury is birthed from the Cancerian womb, becomes the Child, clears his head and fully expresses himself!

Meanwhile, Venus has moved into Virgo, becoming an Earth Goddess for the next few weeks. Venus in Virgo encourages us to embody our inner priestess, and to handle our habits and health in the proper way – let’s eat, sleep, and exercise in the right ways. Mars follows closely behind and joins her in Virgo this week. Give expression to something.

Monday, July 26th: Moon in Pisces makes a couple of minor aspects. We’re still feeling the gravity of yesterday’s Mercury in Cancer opposing Pluto in Capricorn. This aspect brings life changing thoughts, revelations and communications. Evolution through the mind is powerful. When the Mind grasps a new concept, it cannot go back to the former idea.

Tuesday, July 27th: Moon in Pisces goes void around 6:15pm Pacific, and Mercury enters Leo at the same time! Mercury has been moving lightning fast, and is well expressed through the sign of Leo. Our minds and hearts are connected, and commmunications are enhanced. Today is excellent for singing and playing music, if that’s your thing; any artistic ventures will go far today.

Wednesday, July 28th: Moon in Aries, and Jupiter (going backwards or ‘retrograde’) falls back into Aquarius. We will be revisiting issues from the past year, but our approach to solving them will be matured. With Moon in Aries, keep calm while driving, or dealing with insecure, headstrong people. There’s a feeling of rebirth today, so be in tune with what you’re birthing in your life.

Thursday, July 29th: Moon in Aries, and In the morning, there’s a major opposition between Mars in Leo and Jupiter in Aquarius. Focus on leadership. Helping other people shine, is the best use of this energy. Lead with your heart. Mars moves into Virgo around 1:30pm Pacific. Mars isn’t thrilled about Virgo AT ALL, but it IS good for planning new strategies for tackling problems. Mars in Virgo streamlines processes for maximum efficiency. Just go easy on perfectionism and self criticism.

Friday, July 30th: Moon into Taurus at 1:08pm Pacific. Moon sextiles Jupiter, then trines Mars in Virgo an hour later. Keep a cool head and engage in calm communications. With the Taurus Moon (exalted) and these aspects, we could encounter stubborness with people today. Focus on the sensual side of Taurus, and indulge yourself in romance, food, or nature.

Saturday, July 31st: Moon in Taurus, AND enters it’s 4th quarter; the dark of the Moon. The Moon makes three squares today, which gives us some work to do to find agreement or forward progress. Moon conjuncts Uranus bringing surprises.

Sunday, August 1st: Moon in Taurus still today! Sun conjuncts Mercury in Leo at sunrise. Mercury opposes Saturn at 2:50pm Pacific which can bring a deep need for reality-based conversations. Careful not to fall into pessimism or negative thinking.

We begin this week with a balsamic, fallow Moon, building towards a New Moon at 18 Cancer on Friday. The eclipses are behind us, and it’s interesting to notice where our lives and attitudes have changed over the last month. Leading up to this New Moon on Friday, we have an opportunity to release things that don’t fit into our new, emotional way of being (i.e. Sun in Cancer).

We just came through some volatile aspects last weekend. There was a fixed T-square: Mars in Leo and Saturn in Aquarius opposing each other, and Uranus in Taurus in the middle squaring both. It brought anger, struggles with authority, ego deflation, sudden surprises and urgent need for change. These influences will be with us for several more days. If we’ve been stuck in power struggles with someone, it is plainly obvious this week.

You can use this energy by giving positive attention to sexuality and ambition. Uranus, forming the square, wants you to focus on the future. How can you make your path easier? Where can you integrate new technology into your life to better support and grow your aspirations?

Underneath everything, we have the retrogrades of Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto. That’s a lot of backwards motion. Perhaps you feel no progress is being made these days. If you feel stuck, lost in life, that you’ve been backsliding, things aren’t moving fast enough, or just irrational fears, it could all be exacerbated by these retrogrades. Saturn and Pluto can bring up helplessness, karma, issues with time, sacrifice and depletion; but their retrogrades bring long term stability. You just have to stay in the present and go with the flow.

Monday, July 5th: Moon void-of-course in Taurus at 10am Pacific, then into Gemini at 6:24pm. It’s an unstable way to start the week. Anything can come up during a void moon, and this is a longish one. Focus on matters at hand. Sun sextile Uranus is exact and brings yearning for freedom, independence and new perspective. Let yourself be wild and free. Moon square Jupiter in the evening could bring some tensions between our mind and spirit.

Tuesday, July 6th: Moon in Gemini trines Saturn today, bringing a serious tone to communications. Mercury squares Neptune in the middle of the night, so try and remember your dreams. When we wake up, this square brings confusion to decisions and communications, so be patient, ask questions, listen, and be know everyone else is in the same boat. Capturing your imagination in your work may produce wonderful results.
Also Tuesday, Venus opposition Saturn occurs at 7:36pm Pacific, and can bring a chill to relationships, or a need for personal time. Learn more about your craft; study and practice can bring beautiful results. Perhaps a mentor might teach you something wonderful. But it’s easy to give in to pessimism with this aspect, and miss the potential. Some may feel lonely or dubious about relationships, but it’s wise to avoid big decisions until the weather is more favorable.

Wednesday, July 7th: Moon in Gemini sextiles Mars and squares Neptune in the evening, bringing up echoes from yesterday. The Moon conjuncts the North Node today, so watch for flashes of the future. The Moon is in it’s balsamic phase, preparing for the New Moon coming Friday… Venus trine Chiron today brings lovely opportunities for healing to relationships, or healing through women and art.

Thursday, July 8th: Moon in Cancer makes a whole slew of aspects. Planetary energies are unified in a supportive way for tomorrow’s New Moon. Venus square Uranus is exact today, meaning sudden, unexpected events can impact relationships. It can be a positive or negative influence, just whatever is needed for growth. After so much restriction the urge for adventure, luxury, exciting pleasures, can be strong.

Friday, July 9th: New Moon in Cancer at 6:17pm Pacific. 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. Moon in Cancer tends to emphasize home life and family, so enjoy those who move with you through life, including your pets. Also, this is a great date night, just don’t overshare.

Saturday, July 10th: Moon is void-of-course in Cancer all day, until entering Leo at 5:21pm. Walk carefully around people’s feelings. A void Moon in Cancer can be emotionally tricky, so practice restraint. This is a day of healing, rest, reflection and food. Also today, Venus squares Chiron in Aries, which can give creative people firey inspiration.

Sunday, July 11th: Moon in Leo opposes Saturn and squares Uranus, so we are emotionally integrating the events of last week. Also, Mercury enters uncertain, insecure and emotional Cancer for the next three weeks, bringing the need for understanding and meaning to our conversations. The Messenger doesn’t like being bogged down in emotions, so use Mercury in Cancer to access the power of imagination.

*When sperm whales need a nap, they take a deep breath, dive down about 45 feet and arrange themselves into perfectly-level, vertical patterns. They sleep sound and still for up to two hours at a time between breaths, in pods of 5 or 6 whales, presumably for protection. No one knew whales slept vertically until a 2008 study documented the behavior. And no one captured really good photography of it in the wild until 2017. French photographer Stephane Granzotto was documenting sperm whales in the Mediterranean for his book on the creatures when he came across these sleeping whales.

There are a couple powerful aspects this week with Mars. It will oppose Saturn, and then square Uranus; both of which can be tense and explosive. Also, last Thursday’s Full Moon in Capricorn is still unfolding, so stay calm this week and avoid arguments. The Dark of the Moon/4th quarter begins this Thursday, July 1st, and is waning until Friday, July 9th, when we have a New Moon in Cancer. The next two weeks are full of squares and other challenging aspects, so tensions could be high. Take excellent care of yourself; get good rest, good food and good company.

Mercury went Direct last Tuesday, and is barely moving. When a planet is stationary, before it starts picking up speed again, it’s powers are said to be very concentrated. This is a powerful time to speak and be visible! Need to clear the air? This is a great time to do it. Say what you NEED and let people know what you’re feeling, just do it calmly. What message do you want to send out about yourself or interests? What do you want people to notice about you, and what do you want to accomplish? Think about these things as Mercury begins to move forward.

Monday, June 28th: Moon into Pisces at 10:51am Pacific, and Venus entered Leo in the night. Venus loves being in Leo. Women will be creative, strong, and heart centered over the next several weeks. Venus inconjunct Jupiter is exact today. Watch out for overindulging and risk taking. Be gentle with yourself and have some fun. Everything cheers up in the evening with the Moon conjunct Jupiter.

Tuesday, June 29th: Moon in Pisces trines the Sun in Cancer. Fluffy-watery-Neptune day could have us seeking emotional security. Give yourself whatever you need – a nice dinner, phone calls with friends, or maybe solitude. It’s all good, just follow your instincts. This combination brings out emotions, music and creativity. Moon sextile Uranus in the afternoon could bring some surprises.

Wednesday, June 30th: Moon in Pisces goes void-of-course at 10:40am, then into Aries 6:21pm Pacific. That’s such a long void period! Follow plans and focus on the work in front of you. Keep your calm while driving, or dealing with insecure, headstrong people. There’s a feeling of rebirth today, so be in tune with what you’re birthing in your life.

Thursday, July 1st: Moon in Aries and five aspects! The big one is at 6:08am – the major opposition between Saturn in Aquarius and Mars in Leo. We’ve been building up to this all week. Both Mars and Saturn are “malefics”, capable of bringing destructive forces and major power struggles. Mars already wants to be in charge, but in Leo he’s a raging narcissist about it. Meanwhile, Saturn in Aquarius is on the side of humanity and forward progress. These two major planets agree on drive, ambition and hard work, so these are the best things to focus on this week. Moon trine Mars in the evening gives us industrious ways to work through the intensity.

Friday, July 2nd: Moon in Aries. Today is the eye of the hurricane. We’re still feeling the big forces at work from yesterday, but there’s big stuff coming tomorrow. Keep a cool head and engage in calm communications. Mercury sextile the Moon is the only aspect today, and that helps us understand each other.

Saturday, July 3rd: Moon in Taurus. The Sun is inconjunct Saturn, which brings struggles with authority figures. Your ego could be challenged, or you’ll find there’s more hard work to be done.
THEN we have Mars in Leo square to Uranus in Taurus! Talk about irritability!
This brings conflicts about boundaries and who’s in charge; also conflicts between responsibilities and the need for independence. Suppressed drives can rise to the surface demanding release. The houses that Taurus and Leo occupy in your chart are the way to make peace. You can look it up for yourself on astro.com, or go to my appointments page for 15 minute phone reading.

Sunday, July 4th: Moon in Taurus forms five different aspects, three of which are tense squares. eesh… Hopefully the fireworks will stay in the sky and out of our personal lives. Take it easy, and validate where you have independence in your life.

We begin this week with a balsamic, fallow Moon, building towards a New Moon Eclipse at 19 Gemini on Thursday. Leading up to this Moon, we have an opportunity to release things that no longer fit into our new way of being. We are in eclipse season, which occurs every six months in a specific sign. It always carries a theme, and since these eclipses are on the Gemini-Sagittarius axis this year, the theme is to let go of old ways of being in order to make way for the fresh and new. These eclipses give us a reality check, and a chance to take personal inventory. They show the neglected, shadow sides of our lives, and point us towards what needs attention.

This weekend we had a cardinal T-square which will be with us for several more days. Pluto in Capricorn opposed Mars in Cancer, and the Aries Moon squared the opposition. This aspect can raise passions and bring up discussions with loved ones about feelings, hopes and fears. If we’re stuck in power struggles with someone, it will become plainly obvious this week.

The undercurrents are the retrogrades of Saturn and Pluto, and the upcoming square of Saturn and Uranus next week. This could add to the tensions between Pluto and Mars, and highlight feelings of no progress. If you’ve been feeling lost in the face of world events, or that you’ve been backsliding, things aren’t moving fast enough, or just irrational fears, it could all be exacerbated by these retrogrades. Saturn and Pluto can bring up helplessness, karma, issues with time, sacrifice and depletion, but it’s always darkest before a new dawn, and we will be receiving a grand, new beginning this week. Sagittarius tells us to have faith.

Monday, June 7th: Moon in Taurus, and Moon conjuncts Uranus. The Moon is exalted here, and it’s also a Monday, so it’s the PERFECT day for Moon Magick. If you want to bring in more creativity or psychic attunement, today is the day for a ritual. Moon bumping into Uranus can bring out your genius as well. Taurus is the sign of sensuality, luxury, indulgence. It’s also a good day for working with animals.

Tuesday, June 8th: Moon into Gemini at 11:47am Pacific. Moon trines Pluto today, along with some lovely sextiles. The Moon is in it’s balsamic phase, preparing for the New Moon coming… Moon square Jupiter in the evening could bring some tensions between our mind and spirit.

Wednesday, June 9th: Moon in Gemini trines Saturn in the afternoon which can bring heavy conversations, based in reality. We have no problem working hard on projects that require mental effort. We are in the sphere of the New Moon in Gemini occurring tomorrow too. The Moon conjuncts the North Node today, so watch for flashes of the future.

Thursday, June 10th: New Moon Solar Eclipse in Gemini in the pre-dawn hours – 3:53am Pacific. There’s a whole slew of aspects too; planetary energies are unified in a lovely, supportive way for this New Moon. The Sun also conjuncts Mercury, which is great for writers and poets. We are drawn to sociability, sharing and TALKING.

Friday, June 11th: Moon Cancer and Mars into Leo! Yay! Mars loves being in a fire sign, and he activates the heart while in Leo. After wandering through uncertain, insecure and emotional Cancer, Mars (and men in general) will be feeling feisty and confident. Support the performing arts.

Saturday, June 12th: Moon in Cancer conjuncts Venus, giving the start of the day a loving, artistic flavor. The Moon interacts with Saturn later on though, and emotions can get heavier. This is a day of healing, rest, reflection and food. With the sensitive Cancer Moon, choose your words wisely. Also today, Venus squares Chiron in Aries, which can give creative people firey inspiration.

Sunday, June 13th: Moon into Leo runs straight into Mars, and suddenly everyone has an opinion or wants to rule the roost. Posturing aside, Venus and the Moon make several lovely aspects with Neptune, Uranus and Saturn, bringing more artistic energy to the day. Channel frustrations into art.
