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.

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.

Astrology of 2021

We have made it through some of the most challenging planetary aspects in recent memory. 2020 was overseen by Pluto, the great reformer, and Saturn, the karmic planet of limitation – both super charged by Mars and expanded by Jupiter. We’ve had to face our fears about injustice, powerlessness, loss, isolation and scarcity. None of us will ever be the same.

A new world opens up to us in 2021. There are challenges ahead, but a different tone. Saturn in Aquarius is a MUCH lighter transit, however it does point to the continuation of the pandemic and limitations on socializing. The planetary influence of 2021 will be Saturn in Aquarius squaring Uranus in Taurus, which presents an interesting duality between progress and caution.

It’s close to being a mutual reception, when two planets are in each others’ ruling signs. Saturn (responsibility and discipline) has a lot in common with Taurus (practicality and slow growth). Uranus (revolution) is the ruler of Aquarius (liberation, revelation). In the coming year, we begin to rebuild, but in a new way. Aquarius demands equal rights and the liberation and unification of humanity, but with Saturn in charge the changes will come slowly. The best way to walk through this year is to be patient, stay in the present moment, and simplify your life.

Aquarius, the revolutionary youth, will have to make peace with the old guard to bring everyone into the future. The old guard is on notice though, and is no longer in charge. The last time Jupiter was in Aquarius was in 2009, and Saturn’s last transit of Aquarius was in 1992. Look back to these years to know what 2021 might have in store for you.

With the Moon’s nodes (future, destiny) touring through Gemini and Sagittarius, the collective consciousness is changing what we believe and the way we think and write laws. Neptune in Pisces, squaring these nodes all year, insists we use intuition and visionary insight to find the path forward.

Thanks to those of you who followed my reports this year! I’m wishing you good luck and clarity in 2021 🙂

Week of December 21st: Winter Solstice

“Druids Cutting the Mistletoe on the Sixth Day of the Moon” by Henri Paul Motte (France, c.1900)

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 0 Capricorn
Mercury at 0 Capricorn
Venus at 5 Sagittarius
Mars at 23 Aries (Rulership)
Jupiter at 0 Aquarius
Saturn at 0 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune at 18 Pisces (rulership, strong)
Pluto at 23 Capricorn
North Node at 19 Gemini

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.

The Sun has finished it’s travels through Scorpio, and we’ve officially entered the sign of Sagittarius, the Archer. For the next month, we will be reassessing our Truth, and aligning ourselves with new meaning and purpose. The Archer chooses a goal, and focuses her energy there before releasing her arrow. Now is the time to examine our goals, and prioritize what is most important to us.

We’ve been through SO much transformation this year, and most of us are feeling exhausted… but we aren’t out of the woods yet. Jupiter and Pluto joined together a couple of weeks ago, and now Jupiter is on it’s way to catch up with Saturn at the end of December. Once that last conjunction happens, and these planets begin to move into Aquarius, things will start to turn a corner.

This week is manageable, but also a gradual build up to our fifth eclipse of the year, a lunar eclipse next Monday, November 30th in Gemini. During an eclipse, hidden issues arise and come to light to be handled – and since it’s a Full Moon – the issues are emotional in nature.

Also, the planet Neptune is at a stop all week, about to turn Direct this Saturday in Pisces. This will heighten our intuition, but also contribute to brain fog, fatigue, and feelings of being lost. If you feel these things just relax into it and stay in the present moment. Neptune is great for creativity and spiritual pursuits, so put your energy there.

Monday, November 23rd: Moon in Pisces. Moon in a water sign makes this an emotional and spiritual start to the week. Pisces makes things fuzzy and undefined… not the best day for negotiation. Mercury trine Neptune at 8:40pm Pacific encourages healing through inspiration, imagination and spiritual strength.

Tuesday, November 24th: Moon in Aries chases Mars, and also trines the Sun newly in Sagittarius. It’s a wonderful, fiery day, so be careful about emotional outbursts or headstrong behavior. It’s a creative day full of ideas!

Wednesday, November 25th: Moon in Aries, and conjuncts Mars and Black Moon Lilith. Tests might come up around your identity. The best use of this energy is setting boundaries where needed.

Thursday, November 26th: THANKSGIVING! Moon void-of-course in Aries at 3:45pm Pacific, then slows waaaay down as it enters Taurus at 7:43pm. Even though many of us will be away from our families this year, it will still be a day of feasting, overindulgence and sensory delights. Live it up!

Friday, November 27th: Moon in Taurus. We are in the realm of the Full Moon eclipse on Monday, November 30th, so things could be getting intense. Any activity that awakens the five senses is highlighted. Get outside today and appreciate nature. Very passionate date night.

Saturday, November 28th: Moon at the end of Taurus and Neptune stationing Direct. Love, beauty, passion, commitment, nature, animals, and the Divine Feminine are the energies to focus on this weekend. Look back to June 23rd, when Neptune went retrograde, to see what themes have arisen for you from this transit. When Neptune is stationary there’s two paths we can take: the first is inspiration, clear dreams, heightened intuition, and mystical revelations. The other path is escapism, leading to illusions, hyper-sensitivity, drama, and over indulgence in substances. Try not to overindulge in alcohol, drugs, sugar, shopping, etc.

Sunday, November 29th: Moon in Gemini. Very chatty day full of socializing and online purchases. The Full Moon Eclipse is tomorrow, so no big decisions today.

Week of July 20th

CURRENTLY:
New Moon in Cancer TODAY! Sun and Moon at at 29 Cancer
Sun into Leo this Wednesday.
Mercury at 8 Cancer (weak)
Venus at 13 Gemini (neutral)
Mars at 11 Aries (Rulership)
Jupiter RETROGRADE at 22 Capricorn (fall, very weak)
Saturn RETROGRADE at 28 Capricorn (rulership)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 24 Capricorn
Neptune at 20 Pisces (rulership, strong)
North Node at 27 Gemini

We are done with eclipses until December. We’ve all walked through a portal into a new life – personally and collectively. Things should start feeling more balanced and mobile with Mercury and Venus now moving Direct. If there were any final breakthroughs, they occurred over the past week with the Sun’s opposition to Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn – all still hovering near the “Covid point” of 24 Capricorn. The New Moon at 28 Cancer today, directly opposite Saturn, brings some heaviness and responsibility to our growth over the next couple of weeks. The time is ripe for decisive action. The Sun enters Leo this Wednesday, July 22nd.

In the background we still have many retrograde planets – Saturn, Pluto, Jupiter and Neptune. This means we are reassessing our lives right now. We are going over ground we’ve already covered, to see if our chosen path still works for us. It’s a time of truth (Jupiter) responsibility (Saturn) and soul searching (Pluto). What changes do we need to make to participate in the new paradigm? The transitions are DEEP, and shake the very foundations of who we are and what we are doing on this planet.

Monday, July 20th: New Moon in Cancer, then into Leo at 1:16pm Pacific. People might be sensitive, so be kind and gentle towards others. Intuitive, creative, motherly, vulnerable and domestic. The place where Cancer falls in your chart is where you nurture, cherish, and encourage loved ones. See this New Moon as a beginning and an ending – a way to change both your history and your future. Reach out to love ones; check on folks who are stuck in their homes alone. Nurturing comes in many forms: food, a hug, and being there to listen.

Tuesday, July 21st: Moon in Leo. Let the child in you come out and play! You can receive concessions from authority today, or you may find yourself leading others. Great day to stand out, shine, and perform.

Wednesday, July 22nd: Moon void-of-course in Leo, Sun into Leo. Day of continuity from yesterday’s developments. A void Moon always means to lay low and follow well-laid plans. Stay away from risks or negotiation, instead stabilize what’s in progress.

Thursday, June 23th: Moon in Virgo. Our focus turns towards health, habits and being of service to others. Spend the day getting organized, exercising or starting a new, healthy habit. Detailed work is easy now.

Friday, June 24th: Moon in Virgo. Continued putting things in their place and getting your life in order.

Saturday, June 25th: Moon in Libra. We will be full of energy and ambition today, but with the moon in Libra everything will be a team effort. Partnerships are highlighted. It’s a romantic weekend ❤

Week of June 22nd

Crystal pool inside a cave in New Zealand. Crystal is the stone of the zodiac sign Cancer

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 1 Cancer
Mercury RETROGRADE at 14 Cancer (weak)
Venus RETROGRADE at 5 Gemini (neutral)
Mars at 26 Pisces (weak)
Jupiter RETROGRADE at 25 Capricorn (fall, very weak)
Saturn RETROGRADE at 0 Aquarius (rulership)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 24 Capricorn
Neptune at 20 Pisces (rulership, strong)
North Node at 29 Gemini

We had a major shift this weekend, did you feel it? The North Node conjunct the New Moon on Saturday gave us a glimpse of the future, and what will be developing over the next six months. It’s interesting to notice any signs or messages from the Universe during an eclipse; what happened in your life?

Astrologically, the Sun and Moon were conjunct with the North Node (future) bringing us a powerful New Moon Eclipse in Cancer. Along with this we had the Summer Solstice, which is the high point of light for the whole year. From now on the days will gradually get shorter.

In the background we have many retrograde planets – Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Pluto, and Jupiter are all retrograde, with Neptune turning retrograde on Monday at 9:30pm. This means we are reassessing every corner of our lives this Summer. We are going over ground we’ve already covered to see if our chosen path still works for us. It’s a time of contemplation and soul searching.

Venus will be resurrecting herself on Thursday as the Morning Star. She goes through her retrograde cycle every 1.6 years, and this week she is reemerging as a glorious, new queen. A few weeks ago she turned retrograde, descended in the twilight as the evening star, became purified in the fires of the Sun, traveled through the underworld, and now rises as a new morning star. It’s a beautiful cycle of rebirth, and it has been mirrored in our society by the emergence of a new civil rights movement.

Monday, June 22nd: Moon in Cancer, Neptune Retrograde in Pisces. The lovely new moon in Cancer continues today and reaches greater strength. People might be sensitive right now, so be kind and gentle towards others. Intuitive, creative work and music are highlighted today.

Neptune stations

This week begins with Neptune stationing (standing still) above our heads at 16 degrees Pisces, and slowly going retrograde (reversing) over the next week.

Neptune breaks up, diffuses and dissipates the place where it lands in your chart. It could also aspect one of your natal planets, dissolving the boundaries of that planet and house. If you are a Pisces, Gemini, Virgo or Sagittarius, you could be very effected by Neptune’s influence in the next few months.

With Neptune, you always have a choice. You can escape your fears by drinking or using drugs, OR you can ask for spiritual strength. I whole-heartedly encourage you to ask for the spiritual strength 🙂 The next few months offer a special time to do deep healing on yourself and your life.

Here’s a great article

from Ronnie Pontiac:  “This can indicate a spaced out but potentially dreamy quality for this week into next. Take care when you commute. For some this may be a time of exhaustion and confusion, if so stop, meditate, get some rest. Dreams may provide useful insights. Inspiration and imagination can be strong so if you’re a creative person make time to receive these gifts of perspective.
Tuesday Mercury trine Jupiter is exact however with Mercury opposition Saturn fading but still an influence this may not be as fun a time as Mercury trine Jupiter can indicate. At worst avoid over optimism, arrogance, over doing, over spending and especially overindulgence. With Neptune stationary the urge to intoxicate and other forms of escapism can be very strong. Use common sense. A good time for meditation with Neptune and Saturn so strong.
Wednesday Mercury trine Neptune one minute before 1 PM is another aspect of inspiration and imagination. Again, dreams can be insightful. Jupiter trine Neptune is still strong and with Neptune stationary the beginning of this week could be a time for profound spiritual insights. Study a spiritual path. Open yourself to mystical exploration. Enjoy some relaxing time by water.
Early Thursday morning just after 3 AM the Summer Solstice arrives as the sun enters Cancer. Can you believe it? 2018 is half over. Look back on the year so far. Are you accomplishing your goals? What would you like to accomplish over the next six months?
Also Thursday just before 10 AM Venus opposition Mars is exact. With Mars going stationary retrograde five days later the Mars side of this opposition will be emphasized. On the negative side it can indicate conflict between the genders and a generalized state of irritation. But on the positive side the tension can be romantic and sexual, and creative. A good time to complete, or turn the corner toward completion, for artistic projects. To get best results find balance between the pleasure seeking appreciation for harmony and beauty that is Venus and the forceful willpower and aggression of Mars.
Friday just before 11 PM sun sextile Uranus is exact indicated possible opportunities for greater freedom. The unexpected may give you a sense of liberation. Look to new tech, new perspectives and new communities for inspiration but be careful as Mercury opposes Pluto just a few hours later.
Very early Saturday morning Mercury opposition Pluto is exact. Expect more ugly secrets and more political power plays. Be careful of saying bitter or hateful things under the pressure of the moment. At worst this can be a time of suspicion, paranoia, and obsession. A time of irritation and arguments that can turn violent. Avoid power struggles and wasting energy on fruitless conflict. At best this can be a time to learn about healing, to communicate catharsis, to repair and reform and to discard where necessary. Pluto favors meditation.
