The Moon has entered her 4th quarter, so this week we are in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle. The New Moon in Capricorn is on Sunday morning. What does this mean? YOU get to REST this week. 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 Capricorn cycle will effect you, you can book a short reading with me here for $45.

This week we are letting go, wrapping stuff up, paying off debts, and clearing our lives of stagnant energy. This is particularly important now, because the Year of the Tiger starts on February 1st, 2022, and the Tiger brings drama. You will want to have your life sorted out as much as possible by then. More on that later.

For now, the Sun has left the fires of Sagittarius, and is traveling through the early degrees of Capricorn, the sea goat. This sign forces us to strengthen the foundation of our lives so we can survive the harsh Winter. Capricorn is also harsh. The goat demands we face reality, and do the hard work necessary to move ahead. There’s no short cuts and you can’t pay your big brother to do it for you. YOU have do the work and apply yourself; then you can walk easily over the impossible terrain of the wild goat.

Monday, December 27th: Moon in Libra trines Saturn in Aquarius in the pre dawn hours, but there are no other aspects. We’re still in the middle of huge energy shifts from this weekend – particularly the Venus-Pluto conjunction, and the square between Saturn and Uranus last Friday. Today’s Moon in Libra seeks balance, so balance is the best thing to focus on today. Walk the middle road between work and play, family and individuality, and love and independence.

Tuesday, December 28th: Moon in Libra squares Mercury, Venus and Pluto in the early morning, then enters Scorpio at 1:16pm Pacific. There could be real tests for relationships and partnerships today, but Moon in Libra is great for reaching agreements. Try to hammer things out with people in the morning. Major sextile between Mars and Uranus in the afternoon can bring unexpected developments, and the Moon in Scorpio accentuates power plays, so stay present. Happy news? JUPITER enters PISCES in the evening YAY!!!!

Wednesday, December 29th: Moon in Scorpio makes us witchy. Mercury and Venus conjunct in Capricorn in the early morning, which brings an agreeable vibe to the day. Jupiter newly in Pisces is a wonderful energy which brings optimism and joy to all of us, but particularly Sagittarians. Mars sextiles Saturn in the evening, and we can make good progress by working hard.

Thursday, December 30th: Moon void-of-course in Scorpio all day, entering Sagittarius at 3:08pm Pacific. Mercury and Pluto conjunct in Capricorn in the early morning brings further information about yesterday’s developments. This is a huge aspect. Moon in Scorpio sextiles Venus, Pluto and Mercury in the morning, bringing positive energies to the big evolution impacting relationships nowadays. Expect occult experiences and deep conversations with people.

Friday, December 31st: Moon in Sagittarius on New Year’s Eve is a PARTY! I’m sure you’ll will have fun tonight. The mood is expansive and the vibe is optimistic. This Moon brings out the truth and adjusts our life perspective. Sagittarius is a wild, liberated, adventurous sign with high ideals. The Centaur wants us to look at our goals, because it’s the sign of the Archer! New Year’s Eve is a great night to decide on your goals for the upcoming year.

Saturday, January 1st: New Year’s Day. Moon void-of-course in Sagittarius all day, entering Capricorn at 3:02pm Pacific. Mercury goes into Capricorn in the middle of the night, followed by a New Moon in Capricorn tomorrow. The conditions are fantastic for making resolutions and committments today. Moon in Capricorn, on a Saturday, is GREAT for saturnian Magick, i.e. discipline, structure and committment. Saturn represents our stability, and brings up themes of structure, time, karma, and authority. 

Sunday, January 2nd: New Moon in Capricorn at 10:33am takes us to the bottom of this year’s energy. From Capricorn, we build up our lives and our year from a new foundation. Where are you right now? Where do you want to be? The sea goat can help you connect the present to the future using practicality and hard work. Remember, the mountain goat can step carefully through seemingly impossible terrain, so remain undaunted by obstacles and forge ahead!

There will be continued developments this week from the dramatic Full Moon in Gemini on Saturday night. This Moon inspires us to start a new story in our lives; a new narrative. The Sun enters Capricorn on Tuesday, ushering in the Winter Solstice. We leave the optimistic fires of Sagittarius for the stern, cold hillsides of Capricorn. This turns our focus to the foundations of our lives, and creating new stability. With Capricorn season, the mood withers, and we are faced with reality, the bottom line, our career, finances and survival.

Monday, December 20th:  Moon in Cancer makes some lovely aspects but brings heightened sensitivity, so step carefully around peoples’ feelings. Go with the flow of your life, and put your energies towards things you have control over. The Moon in Cancer (the Moon’s natural home), on a MONDAY (day of the Moon), means you can do big Moon Magick. Anything involving security, the home, plants, cooking, nurturing, children, fertility or creativity is highlighted.

Tuesday, December 21st: Winter Solstice. Sun enters Capricorn at 8:00am, and the Moon is void-of-course in Cancer, entering Leo at 1:54pm Pacific. The Moon opposes Venus and Pluto too, which brings intensity to the day. Relationship issues could arise in order to be healed and released. Slow down and take your time with projects – there’s no rush.

Wednesday, December 22nd: Moon in Leo gives us a refreshed, lighter attitude today. Lead with your heart and focus on self expression. There’s some tricky aspects in the afternoon though: Moon opposes Saturn and squares Uranus in the late morning. This could bring up difficulties, and you’ll need to work to solve them. Patience is the only way through these energies. Take a break if you need to.

Thursday, December 23rd: Moon in Leo sextiles Neptune, Pluto and Venus today. This can bring small, positive developments with relationships. Peace can be achieved, and people will seek to connect through natural affinity. Today is good for seeking acknowledgement and cooperation from those in leadership positions. Also, entertainment will bring relaxation and happiness.

Friday, December 24th: Christmas Eve. Moon in Virgo makes us budget conscious, so last-minute shopping could become practically oriented. Also, the third and final Saturn square Uranus is exact today, igniting the friction between the old way of doing things and the new world approaching us. This has been the ongoing influence of this entire year – the battle between the old, traditional world and the new, progressive future. Choose your battles.

Saturday, December 25th: Christmas Day. Moon in Virgo trines Uranus and Mercury, which can bring sudden surprises. It will be a busy day. The best use of Virgo energy today is to follow a plan, put out healthy snacks, be of service and keep the house tidy. Avoid criticism and over-analysis. There could be a dark undercurrent – with retrograde Venus conjuncting Pluto for the second time. Release old, toxic energies and focus on healing.

Sunday, December 26th: Moon in Libra enters her 4th quarter. Kwanzaa begins, and in England it’s Boxing Day. The Moon trines Venus and Pluto today, bringing positive developments to the themes of this week. Mercury also sextiles Neptune which allows our minds to wander and be inspired. Spend quality time with the ones you love.

We are in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle, preparing for the New Moon at 12 Sagittarius on Friday night. AND it’s a solar eclipse! Let yourself rest this week, and take time to reflect on how you’d like the upcoming Moon cycle to go. If you need a personal reading on how this Sagittarian cycle will effect you, you can book a short reading with me here for $45.

This week we are letting go of things, wrapping stuff up, paying off debts, and clearing our lives of stagnant energy. The Sun has left the deep waters of Scorpio, and is now traveling through the early degrees of Sagittarius, the fiery wild horse! It’s a big energy shift from water to fire, and we’re all feeling uplifted. Straight ahead is the New Moon, giving us a fresh start. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the great and benevolent King. He dispenses wealth, luck, optimism, fortune, and wisdom. We could all use a good dose of Jupiter these days.

And there’s more good news…. there are several trines and sextiles this week between the Sun, Chiron, Mars, Neptune and Mercury. Each one is a beautiful release of positive energy and growth. Mars and Venus are traveling at the same speed right now too, and in a perfect sextile. Let yourself feel optimistic this week, sieze opportunities that appear, and know that the Universe is finally giving us a break.

Monday, November 29th: Moon in Libra. The Sun and Mercury had an exact conjunction yesterday at 6 Sagittarius, and will be traveling together all week. This is called “combust”, and means our intellect can get lost in our passions and egos, OR we think too much. Rely on instincts this week. Mars trine Neptune in the predawn hours is a joyful balance of opposites. Our intuition is ignited and the path forward is clear. It’s a great way to start the week. Let yourself be optimistic, and watch for opportunities.

Tuesday, November 30th: Moon in Libra makes a bunch of aspects today, but that’s nothing compared to the three major sextiles happening! This will be a lovely, harmonious day, but can turn serious as the Moon approaches Scorpio after 6:00pm Pacific. Still, the day is glowing with creativity. Mercury sextiles Saturn (focused mind), Venus sextiles Neptune (compassion and love), and Sun sextiles Saturn (concrete intention).

Wednesday, December 1st: Moon in Scorpio. Neptune stations Direct in Pisces today, so things could be VERY unclear and foggy. If you feel lost don’t worry, things will clear up soon. Neptune can bring spiritual strength, or the desire to escape reality. Nurture yourself and your inspiration. This is definitely the day to REST or be creative.

Thursday, December 2nd: Moon in Scorpio makes five different positive aspects today, so the good news keeps coming. Expect occult experiences and deep conversations with people. Moon trines Neptune, activating the lovely-watery-creative-Neptune vibe. Embrace compassion with people, and let your dreams fly. Moon’s conjunction with Mars gives us the impulse to work hard on our ideas.

Friday, December 3rd: New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius at 11:43pm Pacific. This Moon brings out the truth and adjusts our life perspective. Sagittarius is a wild, liberated, adventurous sign with high ideals. The Centaur wants us to look at our goals, because it’s the sign of the Archer! What are you aiming yourself at?

Saturday, December 4th: New Moon in Sagittarius continues! Mercury is conjunct the New Moon as well, bringing our minds into this shift. Rebirth your thinking to be more positive – especially self talk. This lovely energy. Make a lot of time for adventures and fun.

Sunday, December 5th: Moon in Capricorn is heavy, and the demands of the upcoming week could weigh on us today. Capricorn sours the expansive Sagittarian vibe, so today will be about making progress with challenging work, or getting chores done. Our attention turns towards our ambitions and money goals. Remember, the mountain goat can step carefully through seemingly impossible terrain, so remain undaunted by obstacles and forge ahead.

There will be continued developments this week from the dramatic Full Moon Eclipse last Thursday. The energies around an eclipse are tricky. The best way to handle it, is to do chores, grunt work, meetings, or phone calls that you’ve been avoiding for awhile. An eclipse often helps us see things inside us and around us that have been hidden, but the best way to deal with it is to limit sudden surprises in your life. That means dealing with your life in a deep way.

In ancient times, an eclipse was thought to be a portent of doom – corresponding to the head (North Node) and tail (South Node) of a great dragon. The dragon’s head is forever hungry and consuming, so the idea is, if you’re handling things you’ve been procrastinating on, you’re feeding the dragon’s head true sustenance, and the neverending hunger might be abated. In two weeks we’ll have to deal with another eclipse involving the tail of the dragon. More on that later…

The Sun entered Sagittarius today! We leave the watery, ocean depths of Scorpio for the sunny hillsides of the Centaur. This week starts in the third quarter of the Moon, turning into a fallow Moon on Saturday. With Sagittarius season, the mood lightens and we become more adventurous, philosophical, and goal-oriented. Be on the look out for false optimism and arrogance though.

Monday, November 22nd:  Moon in Cancer. Everyone will be hyper-sensitive, so careful not to offend anyone today. Avoid social complications or “rocking the boat”. Instead, go with the current of your life, and put your energies towards things you have control over. The Moon in Cancer (the Moon’s natural home), on a MONDAY (day of the Moon), means you can do big Moon Magick. Anything involving security, the home, plants, cooking, nurturing, children, fertility or creativity is highlighted.

Tuesday, November 23rd: Moon in Cancer continues; she opposes Venus, then trines Mars and Neptune. Still avoid confronting anyone today – indulge yourself instead. Creativity is accessible, so develop ideas. Good for love, tending plants and animals, opening up and clearing the house. Moon opposing Pluto in the evening can put us in a dark mood, so focus on healing.

Wednesday, November 24th: Moon into Leo at 8am Pacific gives us a refreshed, lighter attitude today. This is further enhanced by the Moon conjuncting the Sun and Mercury, newly in Sagittarius. Have some fun! Mercury in Sagittarius sets our minds free and allows us to explore our personal life perspectives for the next few weeks.

Thursday, November 25th: Moon in Leo is the PERFECT placement for Thanksgiving. People will lead from the heart and seek to connect through natural affinity. Today is also good for seeking acknowledgement and cooperation from those in leadership positions; although you shouldn’t be working. Performances will be first rate.

Friday, November 26th: Moon void-of-course All Day in Leo makes this a bad day to spend money. We are more likely to buy things on a whim and regret it later. Can you do Black Friday shopping tomorrow? Moon goes into Virgo at 6:12pm Pacific, which makes us much more discerning and budget conscious.

Saturday, November 27th: Moon in Virgo enters her 4th quarter. Today we balance the books, manage our health, and tackle anything requiring attention to detail. We are busy busy busy. The Moon makes a couple of squares with Mercury and the Sun, and trines Uranus around 4:15pm. It could be an evening of pleasant surprises.

Sunday, November 28th: Moon in Virgo, going void-of-course at 4pm Pacific. Today we do weekly shopping and get organized. The Moon makes five positive aspects today, culminating with a lovely Sun conjunct Mercury in Sagittarius. This means that Mercury is “via combusta”, or lost in the fires of the Sun, and we must operate on instinct. Hanukkah begins at sundown.

Week of November 1st: New Moon in Scorpio

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 8 Scorpio
Mercury DIRECT at 22 Libra
Venus at 26 Sagittarius
Mars at 1 Scorpio (rulership, do Mars Magick!)
Jupiter at 22 Aquarius
Saturn at 7 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune RETROGRADE at 20 Pisces (rulership)
Pluto at 24 Capricorn
North Node at 1 Gemini

We are in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle, preparing for the New Moon in Scorpio on Thursday. Lots of feelings could be coming up so we can release them. Rest and give yourself time to reflect on how you’d like the upcoming Moon cycle to go. If you’d like a personal reading on how this Scorpio cycle will effect you, you can book a short reading with me here for $45.

There’s a new life staring you in the face this week, but to find it you have to let go of something first. Scorpio is ruled by Mars, the warrior god of strength, courage, boundaries, assertiveness, men, justice, and action. Mars square Saturn is getting stronger right now, becoming exact on Nov 10, which happens to be the day that Mars opposition Uranus begins, getting stronger, until exact on Nov 17.

Mars encourages us to….

Look at our goals. Are they in alignment with your true and highest self? Also, do you have any goals?

Assess our ambitions, life path and direction. It is a time to think about our actions, and whether they are aligned with the life and world we want to create.

Look at our energy and drive, because they are valuable. Is your current job or project worth what you’re spending the time on? Do you need to make a change?

Letting go, releasing, death, and rebirth are the Scorpion themes of the upcoming Moon month. With Scorpio, we are reaching out to deeply connect with things outside of ourselves. It’s a good time to check in and see if you are putting the right energy into your friendships and love relationships. For those who refuse to change the difficulties are going to get worse. For others, it’s a time of opportunity in a new world.

Monday, November 1st: Moon in Virgo is void-of-course at 10am, then into Libra 4:11pm Pacific. We’re feeling the happy and fun effects of the Mercury-Jupiter trine last night. Life feels really good right now! It’s a great way to start the week. Let yourself be optimistic, and watch for opportunities.

Tuesday, November 2nd: Moon in Libra. Mercury squares Pluto in the predawn hours, and the mood changes.There’s a serious tone to the day. Moon trine Saturn adds to the heaviness. We are in the realm of Thursday’s New Moon in Scorpio, so the edge of a pending rebirth is evident. Seek out healing. Try and remember the dreams you have, because they contain messages for you.

Wednesday, November 3rd: Moon in Libra, into Scorpio at 5:52pm Pacific. It’s a busy day, with the Moon making five different aspects. There’s a trine with Jupiter, square with Pluto, conjunction with Mercury and sextile with Venus. This means we are emotionally processing a lot of recent growth in our thinking and life events. Moon in Scorpio means to do Magick! This is a portal towards the deep Fall. Even though Halloween is over, the veil between the worlds is thin, and we can see spirits. The intensity of the upcoming New Moon can be felt today.

Thursday, November 4th: New Moon in Scorpio at 2:15pm. This New Moon squares Saturn, continuing Tuesday’s heaviness. The big aspect though, is the New Moon exactly opposing Uranus over in Taurus. This can bring eccentric people into your life, OR cause sudden, liberating events. Relationships will be strongly effected by this aspect. Try to see the other person’s point of view and be flexible. Expect occult experiences and deep conversations with people. Something in our life needs to die so a new life can be born.

Friday, November 5th: Moon in Scorpio goes void-of-course at 9:10am, then into Sagittarius at 5:52pm Pacific. During a void period, especially in Scorpio, avoid conflict or risk. The Moon trines Neptune and squares Jupiter today, so follow your instincts. Remain flexible, stay in the present, and be creative if you have time. This Moon brings out the truth, but also makes people sensitive, so avoid social complications.

Venus enters Capricorn at 3:44 AM This can add a challenging but stabilizing dose of reality to relationships and artistic pursuits. Hard work and committment is favored for the next several weeks. Loyalty with our partners, friends and family is a good thing to practice right now, and can deepen the foundations of relationships.

Mercury enters Scorpio at 3:35 PM Communications become deep, intense, serious and transformative. There are no more trivialities for the next few weeks. Our minds think strategically, and we are able to see the psychological underpinnings of any situation. Healing is favored along with strength, and an unwavering view of our shadow sides.

Saturday, November 6th: Moon in Sagittarius makes a couple of minor aspects, but the bigger influence is Mercury sextile Venus in the morning. This connection brings positive communication and progress with work and relationships. Make use of this lovely energy. Make a lot of time for adventures and fun.

Sunday, November 7th: Moon in Sagittarius is void ALL DAY, then enters Capricorn at 5:00pm. Another long void period! Avoid being spontaneous or impulsive today. Capricorn sours the expansive Sagittarian vibe, so today will be about making progress with challenging work, or getting chores done.

Week of October 4th: New Moon in Libra

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 12 Libra (in it’s fall, no Sun Magick now)
Mercury RETROGRADE at 20 Libra
Venus at 28 Scorpio (Detriment! No Venus Magick now)
Mars at 13 Libra (Detriment, no Mars Magick now)
Jupiter RETROGRADE at 22 Aquarius
Saturn STATIONING at 6 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune RETROGRADE at 21 Pisces (rulership)
Pluto STATIONING at 24 Capricorn
North Node at 2 Gemini

Autumn has arrived, the veil between the worlds is getting thinner, and the darkness approaches. We have a transformative week before us. We are currently in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle, preparing for the New Moon in Libra on Wednesday. Lots of old feelings and issues could be coming up, so we can release them. Rest and give yourself time to reflect on how you’d like the upcoming Moon cycle to go. If you’d like a personal reading on how this Libra cycle will effect you, you can book a short reading with me here for $45.

Libra is ruled by Venus, the powerful goddess of love, relationships and art. This New Moon on Wednesday is conjunct the Sun and Mars, which greatly amplifies it’s power. With the Sun and Mars traveling so closely together, our ambitions are aligned with our Souls, and we can find new meaning through our actions.

Finding balance and justice are the Libran themes of the upcoming Moon month. The signs of Aries through Virgo are mostly concerned with the “Self”; Libra is the first point of the zodiac where we encounter other people, and relationships come to the forefront. It’s a good time to check in and see if you are putting out the right energy in your friendships and love relationships. Are you working as part of a team? Are you sharing attention, healing and nurturing? What is standing in your way of being a better partner?

The deep deep undercurrent is Pluto AND Saturn standing still (stationary) over the East Coast of the United States. Both of these heavyweights turn Direct this week, which can bring pessimism, “do or die” attitudes, intensity and moodiness. Pluto brings deep evolution in a way you can’t avoid. You gotta do it. All of our repressed, toxic energy comes up to be released. Pluto is death and rebirth.

Saturn wants you to grow up and be an adult, so maturity is another theme coming up this week. Saturn is structures, time and responsibility. How to use this energy: Look for old structures in your life that you have outgrown and let them go. Once Saturn goes Direct, you can rebuild them in a more thoughtful and conscious way.

Monday, October 4th: Moon in Virgo makes four aspects today. It’s a great way to start the week, because Virgo has us getting organized and handling things we’ve been avoiding. Our focus is on order and health. Pluto is standing still in the sky, like a sentry standing guard over us and our evolution. The intensity of the upcoming New Moon can be felt today.

Tuesday, October 5th: Moon in Libra trines Saturn in the early evening. We are in the realm of tomorrow’s New Moon in Libra, so relationship energy is very strong today, We seek balance; if our life has been one-sided, we are very aware of it. Try and remember the dreams you have tonight, because they contain messages of new growth. The cusp of rebirth.

Wednesday, October 6th: New Moon in Libra at 5:05am Pacific. This Moon is conjunct Mars, which can bring up issues with balance, assertiveness, relationships, men, justice, and action. The Moon also makes six different aspects today! We will be feeling the effects of this transformational New Moon for a long time. With Mercury retrograde, and Venus in Scorpio (detriment), be cautious and strategic with relationships and communications. Pluto in Capricorn also goes Direct at 11:30am.

Thursday, October 7th: Moon in Scorpio squares Pluto and Saturn, continuing yesterday’s heaviness. More information comes out about the issues of the week. The focus is on fairness, balance and justice. Try to see the other person’s point of view and be flexible. Agreements will be hard won. Thank goodness Venus moves into Sagittarius today. This lightens the mood tremendously. Also today:
Mars and the Sun conjunct in Libra: Our ego may want to rule the roost, so don’t be a bully; practice patience and tolerance.

Friday, October 8th: Moon in Scorpio opposes Uranus, trines Neptune and squares Jupiter. Remain flexible, stay in the present, and be creative if you have time.
Remember, with a Scorpio Moon, it’s great to visit the ocean, or hang out by a pool. This Moon brings out the truth, but also makes people sensitive, so avoid social complications. With the Moon in Scorpio it’s a witchy day. If a boundary needs to be set, today is the day.

Saturday, October 9th: Moon in Sagittarius makes three aspects, but the bigger influence is the Sun, Mercury and Mars dancing around together in Libra. They are traveling closely and conjuncting each other today. Positive communication and progress with work and relationships. Make use of this lovely energy. Let men have the last word today.

Sunday, October 10th: Moon in Sagittarius makes four minor aspects, but has a square with Neptune around 7pm… the same moment Saturn in Aquarius goes DIRECT. Yikes. Watch for major reality checks today, and fantasies being popped like balloons. Make use of this heavy, Saturnian energy by making progress with challenging work, or getting chores done.

We began this week with a New Moon at 14 Virgo, which occurred Monday and continues to unfold today. We are inspired to clean up our lives and get everything in order. Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the winged messenger of thought and communication. With the Sun and Mercury so close together, our minds are at their peak, and we can be decisive. The decisions you make now, determine your future path.

Virgo means to discern, analyze, discriminate and assimilate (which is why I posted the picture of the cell). We need to take care of ourselves and each other. Virgo is a sign of health, work, and being of service. We are preparing to enter ‘relationships’ when the Sun goes into Libra on September 22nd. How we enter the world needs to be thought out, planned and disciplined in Virgo.

The floods last week from hurricane Ida were catastrophic for so many people. Last week, the Moon in Cancer was trining Neptune in Pisces, while Neptune opposed Mars. Neptune and Pisces signify water, the collective unconscious, tidal waves, chaos, the ocean, intuition, surrender, and connection with the divine. With Mars opposing, it can turn into a huge, violent storm. It’s overwhelming, and can bring destruction, anger, and violence in it’s wake. I believe the catastrophe of this storm was brought about by climate change, and enhanced planetarily. I hope relief will come with this New Moon.

Monday, September 6th: New Moon in Virgo at 5:52pm Pacific today! Virgo is the High Priestess of Reality. She is an Earth sign ruled by Mercury. The Earth is our physical body. How is your health right now? What can you do to support your health and be stronger? Besides the fabulous New Moon energy, there is a whole slew of major aspects today! Huge shifts are happening:
Mars in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn at exactly 24 degrees. Our energy is boosted.
Venus in Libra trines Jupiter in Aquarius – romantic, artistic, lovely energy.
Sun in Virgo trines Uranus in Taurus – this magnifies the New Moon energy, and brings inspiration, ideas, and revolutionary thinking.
Mars inconjunct Jupiter – could bring health-related crisis

Tuesday, September 7th: Virgo Moon goes void-of-course at 12:24pm, then enters Libra at 8:20pm Pacific. That is a very long void period! Follow already laid plans and avoid taking risks during this time. The New Moon in Virgo energy is still very strong today, especially with all of those major aspects. Our focus is on order and health. Moon conjunct Mars during the void period inspires us to action and ambition.

Wednesday, September 8th: Moon in Libra all day makes a lovely trine with Saturn, and then conjunction with Mercury. Lots of good “airy” energy today if you feel inspired to create some Mercury Magick. A simple thing to do is to light a yellow candle to clear and inspire your mind. This is one of the last Wednesdays to do real Mercury Magick for this year, so make good use of it.

Thursday, September 9th: Moon in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn in the afternoon. There could be a continuation of whatever event happened on Sunday – maybe further conversation or developments. The focus will be on fairness, balance and justice. Try to see the other person’s point of view and be flexible. Agreements will be hard won.

Friday, September 10th: Moon in Scorpio AND Venus into Scorpio at 1:39pm Pacific, which is the sign of her detriment. We are entering a tough few weeks for relationships – as well as for beauty and art-related areas. Let women have the last word while Venus transits Scorpio. Moon square Saturn in the afternoon makes us agree to reality-based ideas.
Remember, with a Scorpio Moon, visit the ocean, or hang out by a pool. This Moon brings out the truth, but also makes people sensitive, so avoid social complications. With the Moon in Scorpio it’s a witchy day. Remember, if a boundary needs to be set, today is the day.

Saturday, September 11th: Moon in Scorpio makes five aspects today, giving us opportunities for deep, emotional growth. Scorpio is the sign of healing, rebirth, transformation and regeneration, so it’s a good placement for the 20 year rememberance of 911. The only challenge comes from the Moon squaring Jupiter in Aquarius, so resist the urge to escape reality or over-indulge in vices.

Sunday, September 12th: Moon in Sagittarius sextiles Saturn in the afternoon, so you can make some progress with challenging work, or getting chores done. Sagittarian moon wants to play around and explore, so carve out time for adventures too!

We begin this week with a New Moon in Leo, which occured Sunday at 6:50am Pacific, at 16 Leo, and continues to unfold throughout the week. We now begin new projects involving creativity and self expression. Leo is the most powerful of all zodiac signs, because it is the only one ruled by the Sun. Now we get to play around, be childlike, explore beauty, be romantic, goof off, create art and be physical. It symbolizes our souls, and their EXPRESSION, along with a feeling of togetherness.

On the other hand, we have a resurgence of Covid. People are beginning to social distance again, to wear masks and isolate in their homes. This is, once again, Saturn in Aquarius. The multitudes, the population, humanity (Aquarius) – is being LIMITED by Saturn. This stern planet rules restrictions, responsibilities, maturity and reality. It is the opposite of the Leo Sun, so our leonine frolicking might be limited. This became pronounced with the exact opposition between the Sun in Leo and Saturn in Aquarius that occured last week.

The Sun and Saturn opposition is also forming squares to Uranus in TAURUS. Uranus here causes us to reevaluate our resources, self reliance, our money, where we live, our survival… the simple basics of life. We are being asked to approach these things in a new way. Uranus is the planet of liberation, rebellion, UFO’s, computer nerds, science, numbers, space and astrology. Taurus is the EARTH in every way, and here we have wild, eccentric Uranus sweeping through and changing the rules. It’s a big shift, and it will be there five more years!

Monday, August 9th: Moon in Virgo all day, but the massive effect of yesterday’s New Moon at 16 Leo is still in effect. Chiron in Aries is closely trine to the New Moon in Leo, and can bring soul healing. Also today Venus opposition Neptune is exact. Artists, musicians and writers can make good headway on their projects. Imagination and inspiration are easily accessed, but avoid the urge for intoxication and escapism.

Tuesday, August 10th: Virgo Moon brings order, health and discipline; watch out for self criticism or doubt. Mercury opposite Jupiter at 6:20pm can bring arrogance and misunderstandings, so save important conversations for tomorrow. Also, Mars in Virgo squares the Moon’s nodes (past and future), which brings healing opportunities from the past, so we can move forward. This healing aspect will be going on for the next week or so.

Wednesday, August 11th: Moon and Venus in Virgo, BOTH trine Pluto today! This is major, cathartic shifts in the areas of feelings and relationships. Watch for “do or die” situations, and remember there is more to the picture. You are not trapped or stuck. Try not to freak yourself out. Huge healing and transformation is also available with these aspects – especially involving health, work, art, romance or ambitions. Go with the flow and write down your epiphanies.

Also, Mercury enters Virgo, it’s exaltation!!! Yay!! Our minds will be operating at peak efficiency for the next month. Wonderful for making plans, writing, finishing projects, organizing, and getting your life together!

Thursday, August 12th: Moon in Libra trines Saturn in the morning, giving this day a serious vibe. The focus will be on fairness, balance and justice. Try to see the other person’s point of view and be flexible. Agreements will be hard won.

Friday, August 13th: Moon in Libra, into Scorpio at 5pm Pacific. Mars semi-sextile to Saturn will make us roll up our sleeves and get to work. We will be driven today, and can make solid progress where we focus our attention. With Mars, Venus and Mercury in Virgo, it’s not a great date night. We’re laser focused on health right now, so embrace it. Practice patience.

Saturday, August 14th: Moon in Scorpio makes four aspects today, giving us many opportunities for a new adventure. Venus and Jupiter are in a tussle (inconjunct) in the morning, so the desire for indulgences will be strong, just keep an eye on yourself and your inclinations. Don’t take risks today.

Sunday, August 15th: Moon in Scorpio makes five different aspects today, and moves into Sagittarius at 8:12pm Pacific. Visit the ocean, or hang out by a pool. The Scorpio Moon brings out the truth, but also makes people sensitive, so avoid social complications. With the Moon in Scorpio it’s a witchy day. Remember, if a boundary needs to be set, today is the day.

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.

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.
