Week of June 27th: New Moon in Cancer

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Sun entered Aries at 8:33am Pacific on Sunday, and it’s officially Spring! Hail unto Ostara and the spirit of rebirth! This is the astrological New Year, and has been celebrated all over the world since ancient times. This time of year is a major turning point for each of us. The metaphoric seeds we plant now will continue to grow throughout the year ahead.

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

Monday, March 21st: Moon in Scorpio. Mercury caught up with Jupiter last night, and made a lovely conjunction in Pisces – very close to Neptune. Today, the Moon comes along in Scorpio and trines all three of them, bringing joyful, expansive moods and communications. Today is transformative. Healing is favored along with strength, and an unwavering view of our shadow sides. This Moon brings out the truth, but also makes people sensitive, so avoid social complications.

Tuesday, March 22nd: Moon in Scorpio, moving into Sagittarius at noon. Also, Mars square Uranus will be exact. This aspect can bring risky actions, crankiness, sudden outbursts or anger. Give tense people a wide berth this week and avoid confrontations. There could be escalation in the Russian invasion of Ukraine too. Watch for sudden developments or changes at work, and stop any psychological examinations of other peoples’ behavior. Focus instead on healing and rebirthing yourself.

Wednesday, March 23rd: Moon in Sagittarius brings an optimistic mood. Look at your goals and aim for your highest ideals. Mercury conjuncts Neptune in Pisces today, which can create confusion with communication and understanding. The edges of our boundaries and motivations are blurred, but it’s a wonderful time to access imagination. A conjunction brings a positive blending of energies, so taking action towards your dreams can yield excellent results, especially with writing. Also great for scrying, divination, and exploring psychic or religious worlds.

Thursday, March 24th: Moon in Sagittarius moves into Capricorn at 2:54pm Pacific, and makes a nice sextile to the Sun. Drives, ambition, and tenacity are in alignment today. No big aspects today, just lots of hard work. Not the right day to seek concessions from authority figures – leave that until next week.

Friday, March 25th: Moon in Capricorn enters her 4th quarter, and we are in the dark of the Moon. Now is the time for solitude, introspection, and rest. This Moon ushers us into a working weekend. Friday is usually date night, but it won’t be a romantic evening unless you’ve finished your chores. From Capricorn, we build our lives from a solid foundation. Where are you right now? The only way forward today is through concentration.

Saturday, March 26th: Moon in Capricorn moves into Aquarius at 5:55pm Pacific. Moon in Capricorn/Aquarius, on a Saturday, is GREAT for saturnian Magick, i.e. discipline, structure and commitment. Saturn represents our stability, and brings up themes of structure, time, karma, and authority. 

Sunday, March 27th: Moon in Aquarius. Mercury enters Aries which adds to the feelings of Spring and rebirth. Everything is “resetting” itself, and we are getting ready to bloom. It’s the beginning of a new yearly cycle, and our thinking is ambitious.

The Moon has entered her 3rd quarter, and there will be continued developments this week from last Tuesday’s Full Moon in Leo. The New Moon in Pisces is nine days away on Wednesday March 2nd. 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 Pisces cycle will affect you, 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.

The Sun has left the stratosphere of Aquarius, and is traveling through the early degrees of Pisces, the Fish. This is the last sign of the zodiac and encourages us to reflect and release. Let go of the past and anything you’ve outgrown. The Fish asks us to let go of boundaries and reality, and merge with the God of our Heart.
Join with the oneness.

Monday, February 21st: Moon in Scorpio trines Jupiter and squares Mercury today. Communications will be deep, intense, and transformative. There are no trivialities today, and our minds think strategically. Healing is favored along with strength, and an unwavering view of our shadow sides. Visit the ocean or hang out by a pool. This Moon brings out the truth, but also makes people sensitive, so avoid social complications. Moon opposing Uranus Monday night may involve surprises or interruptions.

Tuesday, February 22nd: Moon in Scorpio. Watch for power plays or manipulation tactics at work. Don’t get into psychological examinations of other peoples’ behavior – it won’t lead anywhere. Focus instead on healing and rebirthing yourself. A Scorpio Moon on a Tuesday, especially with Mars currently exalted in Capricorn, is FABULOUS for Mars Magick. Rituals that bring the truth or set boundaries are excellent today.

Wednesday, February 23rd: Moon in Sagittarius enters her 4th quarter, and we are in the dark of the Moon. Now is the time for solitude, introspection, and rest. At the same time, the Sagittarian moon makes us expansive and optimistic. Reassess your goals and aim for your highest ideals. Also, Mars sextile Neptune happens – blurring our boundaries and motivations. A sextile brings a positive blending of energies, so taking action towards your dreams can yield excellent results.

Thursday, February 24th: Moon in Sagittarius continues. Mars and Venus are basically conjunct this week, and today form a sextile to Neptune. This is excellent for relationships, and progress can be made in connecting with others. However, Mercury is also square Uranus today, which can bring a craving for independence, sudden events, and misunderstandings. Keep yourself grounded and be alert for revelations.

Friday, February 25th: Moon in Capricorn leads us into a working weekend. Friday is usually date night, but it won’t be a romantic evening unless you’re working with your paramour. From Capricorn, we build our lives from a solid foundation. Where are you right now? The only way forward today is through concentration and hard work.

Saturday, February 26th: Moon in Capricorn, and the mood is serious. Moon in Capricorn, on a Saturday, is GREAT for saturnian Magick, i.e. discipline, structure and commitment. Saturn represents our stability, and brings up themes of structure, time, karma, and authority. 

Sunday, February 27th: Moon conjuncts Pluto in the morning bringing heaviness but moves into Aquarius at 10:33am. We have a nice trine with Mercury in the afternoon which will lighten the mood.

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.
