CURRENTLY:
Sun at 27 Libra
Mercury RETROGRADE at 8 Scorpio
Venus at 16 Virgo
Mars RETROGRADE at 18 Aries (Rulership)
Jupiter at 19 Capricorn (fall, very weak)
Saturn at 25 Capricorn (rulership)
Neptune RETROGRADE at 18 Pisces (rulership, strong)
Pluto at 22 Capricorn
North Node at 22 Gemini

We are in the Season of the Witch; just a 12 days from Halloween. This Thursday the Sun enters Scorpio, and we celebrate the Mighty Dead. The veil between the worlds is thin, and we can all communicate with the spirit world. I usually see spirits out of the corner of my eye… do you see them or sense them?

We made it through last week and the life-altering jolts of the Sun (your Soul’s path) squaring Jupiter (truth), Pluto (evolution), and Saturn (responsibility). Each square asked you to turn a corner in in your life. Last Thursday’s New Moon in Libra brought us a fresh, new vision for the future, and a new way of living our lives – especially in the arena of relationships. This week we grow this new idea as we finish this year’s transit through the sign of Libra.

You might have felt emotionally heavy this weekend with the Sun squaring Saturn. If you felt moody or depressed, you’ll feel better as the week gets started. The way through these transits is to focus on chores and working towards your responsibilities.

Monday, October 19th: Moon in Sagittarius. The Sun begins it’s travels through the last degrees of Libra. Relationship issues could surface today. The Sagittarius Moon asks you to face your life with courage, honesty and adventure. What feels easy to commit to right now? It could be a person, situation, or the new path you glimpsed last week. Venus trine Jupiter is also exact today, which can bring inspiration in love, art, money and fashion. This is a wonderful aspect for creativity.
Mercury retrograde in opposition to Uranus at 7:53pm Pacific. This will bring huge breakthroughs in how we think, and hidden information. Mercury in Scorpio is about strategy and secrets, and when it’s retrograde these secrets can come out. Pay close attention to what’s revealed to you this week. The good part is it can also help us express our genius.

Tuesday, October 20th: Moon in Sagittarius. Day of Truth. The Moon crosses the Galactic Center and sends us “messages”; flashes of insight can arrive suddenly! Pay attention to your thoughts and where they are leading you. What are you being “called” to do? Put your energies there.

Wednesday, October 21st: Moon in Capricorn. Venus trines Pluto, which can bring extremes to relationships. If things are stressed between you and your partner, there could be some deep challenges appearing today. Pluto brings a serious, “do or die” type of energy, so we could see some breakups. Adding to this, Mercury squares Saturn bringing seriousness to communications. Don’t negotiate with authorities today if possible, instead use your time for practice and study. Speak to someone older and wiser.

Thursday, October 22nd: Sun into Scorpio at 4pm Pacific, Moon in Capricorn. Be mystical today, but embrace the Capricorn Moon and get to work too. Moon joins Saturn today which can bring emotional heaviness or depression. We’ve reached the end of the Sun’s journey through Libra, so there might be “tests” from the Universe on any relationship changes you made in October.

Friday, October 23rd: Moon in Aquarius makes people friendly but detached, which is better for negotiating. Sun newly in Scorpio opposes Black Moon Lilith at 0 Taurus which exposes our secrets. This delivers illumination around your soul’s path and what all of us need to do to survive in this new Covid economy. So many people are scared and struggling right now, hopefully this transit will bring some clarity on how to move forward, and the strength to face our fears.

Saturday, October 24th: Moon in Aquarius. Feel the optimism in the air today! Aquarius asks us to focus on the future, make plans, and involve our network of friends. Watch out for risky behavior though, since Uranus brings spontaneity, rebellion, and independence. Focus on expressing your unique genius.

Sunday, October 25th: Moon into Pisces at 2:18pm Pacific. Music, purification, healing, secrets and deep conversations. Go with the flow. Sun conjunct Mercury unites your heart and mind. We each receive new clarity on the major parts of our lives and the way forward on our path. Sunday is a turning point and commitment to the changes that began on Monday of this week.

Week of October 12th

Arthur Rackham, “Ring Upon thy Hand” illustration from ‘Siegfried and the Twilight of the Gods’, 1924

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 20 Libra
Mercury STATIONING at 12 Scorpio
Venus at 10 Virgo
Mars RETROGRADE at 21 Aries (Rulership)
Jupiter at 18 Capricorn (fall, very weak)
Saturn at 25 Capricorn (rulership)
Neptune RETROGRADE at 18 Pisces (rulership, strong)
Pluto at 22 Capricorn
North Node at 23 Gemini

We’re in the dark of the Moon this week, so don’t do anything, just rest. The Moon is waning until Friday, October 16th, when we have a New Moon in Libra.

Libra is ruled by the planet Venus, which is currently in an uncomfortable transit through Virgo. Venus is in her “fall” in Virgo, meaning her energies are bottled up or limited in expression. This causes tension, over analysis and controlling behavior in relationships. Try and keep communications open and clear with partners (of all kinds) this week.

Currently, Mercury is at a dead stop in the sky, and will turn retrograde (go backwards) on Tuesday. This event adds deep reflection to the already quiet nature of the dark moon. Over the next three weeks, Mercury will retrace it’s steps and go over ground we’ve already covered, triggering a regeneration in our thinking as it travels the corridors of Scorpio.

Mars retrograde, over in Aries, is still leading us through the underworld until November 13th. Our energy is directed inward, and we look at ourselves rather than taking action on people or situations around us. We reassess our ambitions while Mars is retrograde, and revaluate our 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.

What kind of life do you want to have, and are your current actions in alignment with creating it? If not, perhaps it’s time to make some changes.

Are your goals in alignment with your true and highest self?

Your energy and drive are valuable; is it worth what you’re spending our time on?

Monday, October 12th: Moon VOC in Leo ALL DAY! Try not to make big decisions or have important conversations, just spend your energy on being wildly romantic or creative 🙂 Also spending time with children or animals is productive.

Tuesday, October 13th: Moon in Virgo. Mercury Retrograde at 6:05pm Pacific. Ground through nurturing your needs and organizing your home life. Good day for releasing, purging and breaking bad habits. With Mercury stationing, watch out for crazy drivers.

Wednesday, October14th: Moon in Virgo, going VOC at 3:47pm Pacific. Chatty. Good day for talking, sociability and online activities. Issues could arise around understanding, truth, and honesty, as well as challenges with business. Focus on the goal.

Thursday, October 15th: Moon in Libra, and we are in the orb of the New Moon tomorrow. Balance, partnerships, justice and peace. Whatever began in April will come to a major fruition in the next two weeks!

Friday, October 16th: New Moon in Libra at 12:31pm Pacific. Moon goes void of course at 3:30pm for the rest of the day. Plans could change, best to go with the flow. If you need to have meetings or work through agreements, do it in the morning. Remember to focus on balance and win-win resolutions. Excellent date night.

Saturday, October 17th: Moon in Scorpio, Do Magick! We enter through another portal on our way to Halloween and deep Fall. It is the time when the veil between the worlds is thin, and we can see spirits. Expect occult experiences and deep conversations with people. With Mars still retrograde, reflect on passions and think about what corner of your life needs action.

Week of October 5th

“Dark Goddess” — Photographer: Stig-Lennart Sørensen​, Makeup/Model: Maria Landgaard

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 13 Virgo
Mercury at 7 Scorpio
Venus at 2 Virgo (debilitated, in her fall)
Mars RETROGRADE at 24 Aries (Rulership)
Jupiter at 18 Capricorn (fall, very weak)
Saturn at 25 Capricorn (rulership)
Neptune RETROGRADE at 18 Pisces (rulership, strong)
Pluto STATIONING DIRECT at 22 Capricorn
North Node at 23 Gemini

Pluto is standing still (stationing) and turned Direct today in the early morning. We are presented with revelations regarding our evolution this year… and there’s a lot of evolution happening. In typical Pluto fashion, the personal evolution we are each experiencing this year is tied to the deep changes in our society. The pandemic has shaken the foundation of the world, and our lives along with it. We have an opportunity this month to see how far we’ve come, and to judge where more work is necessary for our progress. Saturn and Pluto are moving veeerrrrry slowly as well: Saturn will be at 25 Capricorn until October 28th, and Pluto will be at 22 Capricorn until Nov 19, so if you have any planets in cardinal signs around those degrees, they are getting a wake up call.

Saturn is showing you what you’ll put up with and what you won’t – it presents your limits and boundaries – and shows you were to be disciplined and work hard.

Pluto is going to make you evolve, but it’s healing at the same time. It opens up your possibilities by transforming you in a natural way in agreement with your soul’s purpose.

Venus has entered Virgo, which is one of the most difficult placements for the planet. In Virgo she is in her “fall” or debilitated, and her energies are weakened. This effects women in general, and women might need extra support this month. One of the best ways to work with Venus in Virgo is to be of service to others, and tie up details and loose ends.

Then there is the issue of the President catching Covid the same week Saturn and Pluto turn Direct. The conjunction of Saturn and Pluto on January 12th spawned the Covid pandemic, and now as these planets are turning Direct, the president has caught Covid, and 31 states are surging with the virus. There is definitely karma involved here, as those are very karmic planets. One of the definitions of Saturn is “you shall reap what you sow”. This is especially true as Saturn and Pluto are both opposing Trump’s natal Saturn. And the week of Oct 12 when the sun will oppose Mars, Mercury retrograde begins, and the sun will square Pluto. Also Sunday Oct 18 when a T square occurs between the sun, Mars and Jupiter. Hang on, we have a wild two weeks ahead of us.

Are your actions and goals in alignment with your true and highest self?

Have your goals changed and do you want something different?

Monday, October 5th: Moon VOC in Taurus. Venus is Taurus’s ruler and she is currently debilitated. Avoid social complications and focus on work instead. Moon is trining (happy) with the planetary pile up in Capricorn, so you might get insights into working with the heavy energies at hand.

Tuesday, October 6th: Moon in Gemini. Chatty! Good socializing, networking and negotiation today.

Wednesday, October 7th: Moon in Gemini. Good day for talking, sociability and online activities. Mercury in opposition to Uranus around 2pm Pacific. This can bring sudden shifts, changes and insights. Listen to what the Universe is telling you today, and watch for signs and solutions to problems. For writers and other creative people this can be a time when flashes of genius brighten your creations, especially with the inspiring Jupiter Neptune sextile almost exact.

Thursday, October 8th: Moon in Cancer. People could be sensitive today, so allow for people’s feelings.

Friday, October 9th: Moon in Cancer. Lots of sensitivity, sweetness and nostalgia. Mars square Pluto. Look out cause this can cause fights and violence. Keep a low profile today. Arguments and drama will get you nowhere, so disconnect if someone wants to fight. Health breakdowns related to anxiety and frustration, the desire to dominate, to force a way without regard for anyone else, are among the negative qualities of this aspect. Don’t drive aggressively, and walk away from belligerence. Also, not a good time for risk taking as Pluto can have unexpectedly harsh consequences for those who heedlessly push forward.

Saturday, October 10th: Moon VOC in Cancer. Get creative and connect with friends; use your imagination and be receptive to inspiration and visions. Venus trine Uranus will bring some excitement to art and romance. Watch for unconventional romance and push creative boundaries.

Week of September 21st: LIBRA

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 29 Virgo
Mercury at 22 Libra
Venus at 16 Leo
Mars RETROGRADE at 27 Aries (Rulership)
Jupiter DIRECT at 17 Capricorn (fall, very weak)
Saturn RETROGRADE at 25 Capricorn (rulership)
Neptune RETROGRADE at 19 Pisces (rulership, strong)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 22 Capricorn
North Node at 24 Gemini

We are in the season of CHANGE, the week of the Autumnal Equinox. This Tuesday sees the Sun’s entrance into Libra, which heralds the coming of Fall. It will be equal day and equal night – which is a fitting time to say farewell to our hero of equal rights, the brilliant Ruth Bader Ginsberg. It’s about bringing things into balance.

Mercury squares Pluto Sunday, giving a serious and cathartic vibe to communications this week. We release anything blocking us, or anyone arguing with us about our path.

We have another “Yod” this week too. Sometimes called “the finger of God”, a Yod is when a planet forms a slingshot configuration with two other planets. The key to working with this energy, is to focus on the sign and degree opposite the key planet. This week, Venus is the key at 19 Leo, forming a Yod with Neptune on one side, and Jupiter on the other. This Yod is about facing reality, as opposed to our fantasies and greed.

The Yod point is 19 Aquarius, and the sabian symbol for this point says: “a forest fire is being subdued by the use of water, chemicals and sheer muscular energy. Skill and courage are necessary to bring under control the destructive potential of carelessness and karmic visitations.” What is your personal forest fire right now?

Monday, September 21st: Moon in Scorpio. Face your life with courage and honesty. The pay off from facing hard facts and unavoidable limitations is huge. What reality do you need to embrace to achieve your goals? Be the snake shedding it’s skin. Scorpio is the sign of letting go of something you’ve outgrown, and welcoming the new you.

Tuesday, September 22nd: EQUINOX. Sun into Libra, Moon into Sagittarius. Day of Truth. Listen to any “messages” you receive from the universe. Flashes of insight can arrive suddenly! Pay attention to developments this week, and what you’re being “called” to do, and put your energies there.

Wednesday, September 23rd: Moon in Sagittarius. Mercury square Saturn today can bring serious communications. Avoid negotiations and airing of grievances today because authority could be stubborn and critical. You can use this energy to strengthen weaknesses, practice and study. Speak to someone older and wiser. Get organized, simplify, and get rid of what you don’t need.

Thursday, September 24th: Moon in Capricorn. Be mystical today, but embrace the Capricorn Moon and get to work too. Put effort into creative ventures.

Friday, September 25th: Moon in Capricorn. If you are a creative person, work on your projects! Time is well spent on disciplines and completing responsibilities. DO it.

Saturday, September 26th: Moon in Aquarius. Feel the optimism in the air today! Aquarius asks us to focus on the future, make plans, and involve our network of friends. Watch out for risky behavior though, since Uranus brings spontaneity, rebellion, and independence. Focus on expressing your unique genius.

Sunday, September 27th: Moon in Aquarius, and Mercury into Scorpio. Obsessive thinking, research, healing, secrets and deep conversations. Dig into the facts. Find ways to transform your life, to lift yourself and others. Obsessiveness and lust can take over our thoughts, so make great art instead. Healing and art can come from exploring dark places within us.

Week of September 14th

Lady of the Lake

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 21 Virgo
Mercury at 11 Libra
Venus at 7 Leo
Mars RETROGRADE at 28 Aries (Rulership)
Jupiter DIRECT at 17 Capricorn (fall, very weak)
Saturn RETROGRADE at 25 Capricorn (rulership)
Neptune at 19 Pisces (rulership, strong)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 22 Capricorn
North Node at 24 Gemini

Jupiter (wealth, expansion) went Direct on Saturday, giving this week a fresh, optimistic flavor. Sagittarians are in forward motion again. Jupiter will be retracing territory he’s already covered since March, so we will see more news, and possible expansion, of the pandemic. Moon conjunct Venus in Leo occurred Sunday, which is a lovely aspect bringing joy, healing, beauty, art and inspiration.

The New Moon in Virgo will trine the “Covid” planets – Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter – giving a practical way of dealing with this year’s momentous changes. The Moon will also square the North Node in Gemini this week. This brings fated decisions and choices about the path you want to take… I think this is a good week to use your mind and make balanced, practical decisions from a place of neutrality.

Underneath it all, we remain under the influence of the Mars/Lilith-in-Aries square to Pluto/Saturn/Jupiter-in-Capricorn. Mars, the planet of fire, stood still in the skies last week in the fire sign of Aries, which underlined the igniting of the entire West Coast of the US. I’m so sad that thousands of people are suffering such huge loss from this event. With Mars retrograde, we will all spend the next couple of months regrouping and reassessing how we want to direct our energy. Drive and passion have turned inward, and we each need to check in with ourselves and our ambitions.

Monday, September 14th: Moon in Leo. The place where Leo falls in your chart is where you need to stand out! It’s where you can be wildly creative. Also today Sun trine Pluto at 4:09pm Pacific. The Sun is our Soul, and a trine means it receives lovely energy from Pluto, bringing rebirth, healing and reform. This aspect clears your path for soul evolution.

Tuesday, September 15th: Moon in Virgo. Get organized, and do something good for your health. Venus square Uranus at 8:30am. Expect revelations around relationships and art. New and sudden flashes of the future. Do something different – something aligned with who you are becoming. Squares bring challenges that require action. Be brave and bold.

Wednesday, September 16th: Moon in Virgo. The best day for communication and negotiating. Continue putting things in their place and getting your life in order. Intellectual pursuits and clear communication are strong.

Thursday, September 17th: New Moon in Virgo at 4am Pacific. We plant the seeds of our dreams in fertile soil. Virgo brings manifestation through plans and practicality. Our focus is on health, habits and being of service to others. Spend the day getting organized, exercising or starting a new, healthy habit. Detailed work is easy. Also, Mercury square Jupiter might encourage overindulgence. Use the Mercury side of the equation and keep your discernment.

Friday, September 18th: Moon in Libra. Bring your life back into balance. If you feel that one corner of your life is dominating you, take this weekend to focus on other things. Everything will be a team effort for the next few days. Partnerships are highlighted, and it’s a romantic weekend ❤

Saturday, September 19th: Moon into Scorpio, Day of transformation. When the Moon is in Scorpio we go deep and explore our passions. Avoid socially awkward situations.

Week of September 7th

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 14 Virgo
Mercury at 1 Libra
Venus at 0 Leo
Mars at 28 Aries (Rulership)
Jupiter RETROGRADE at 17 Capricorn (fall, very weak)
Saturn RETROGRADE at 25 Capricorn (rulership)
Neptune at 19 Pisces (rulership, strong)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 22 Capricorn
North Node at 25 Gemini

We’re in the dark of the Moon this week, so don’t do anything, just rest. The Moon is waning until next Thursday, September 17th when we will have a New Moon in Virgo.

Divine Timing.

Currently, Mars is at a dead stop in the sky, and will turn retrograde (go backwards) on Wednesday. It will retrace it’s steps and go over ground we’ve already covered, retriggering the sensitive degrees which heralded Covid19. The earth shaking changes of 2020 were sparked by the rare and fateful conjunction between Saturn and Pluto on January 12th. Mars has been tensely squaring these planets for weeks, giving energy to the dynamic protest movements erupting around the world. Mars will now go back and wake it all up, continuing the intensity of this year.

On a personal level, Mars is taking us on a journey through the underworld until November 13th. This means our energy is directed inward, and we look at ourselves rather than taking action on people or situations around us. We reassess our ambitions while Mars is retrograde, and revaluate our 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.

What’s the truth right now… what are you DOING?

What kind of life do you want to have, and are your current actions in alignment with creating it?

Are your goals in alignment with your true and highest self?

Your energy and drive are valuable; is it worth what you’re spending our time on?

Have your goals changed and do you want something different?

The North Node in Gemini encourages us to connect online. It’s up to us to let go of our repressed sexuality and anger (Pluto), welcome inspiration (Jupiter), and restructure our reality (Saturn). Venus in Leo, the sign of the heart, asks us to fall in love with ourselves and the creativity we hold inside, and share it with the world.

Monday, September 7th: Moon in Taurus. Great day to get out in nature or work in a garden… except for all of the smoke of course 😦 Cook an opulent mean instead. Taurus Moon is good for focusing on health and working with animals.

Tuesday, September 8th: Moon VOC all day in Taurus. Ground through nurturing your needs and home life. Make art.

Wednesday, September 9th: Moon into Gemini. Chatty. Good day for talking, sociability and online activities. Mars goes retrograde at 3:22pm Pacific. Tensions could be high today, so don’t dig too deep. Issues around sex, anger, and ambition may arise, as well as challenges with men. Focus on the goal. Avoid aggressive people, as violence can happen easily with Mars stationary retrograde.

Thursday, September 10th: Moon in Gemini. Good communications today, but stay civil.

Friday, September 11th: Moon in Cancer. Lots of sensitivity, sweetness and nostalgia. Arguments and drama will get you nowhere, so disconnect if someone wants to fight. Avoid overindulgence, except with food. Good movie night.

Saturday, September 12th: Moon in Cancer, Jupiter DIRECT in Capricorn. Sagittarians will feel great today with their ruling planet going the right direction. For the rest of us it’s a mixed bag. The desire for drugs and alcohol can be strong. Bring some compassion into your day. Use your imagination today and be receptive to inspiration and visions.

Week of August 10th

Hades or Pluto, God of the Underworld, Unknown artist

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 18 Leo
Mercury at 11 Cancer (weak)
Venus at 3 Cancer
Mars at 22 Aries (Rulership)
Jupiter RETROGRADE at 19 Capricorn (fall, very weak)
Saturn RETROGRADE at 27 Capricorn (rulership)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 23 Capricorn
Neptune at 20 Pisces (rulership, strong)
North Node at 26 Gemini

We’re in the dark of the Moon this week, so don’t do anything, just rest. The Moon is waning, or balsamic, until next Tuesday, August 18th when we will have a New Moon in Leo. There’s a lot roiling under the surface…

The current Sun in Leo is a wonderful time, since out brightest star has come home to his kingdom. We can let our hair down and be ourselves. The Sun symbolizes the soul and identity, and invites us to express ourselves. The background of Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn have changed how we do this. We can express ourselves, but we have to protect our fellow humans from the scourge of Covid19 at the same time. We need to wear masks and physically distance. The North Node in Gemini encourages us to connect online. It’s up to us to let go of our heavy worries (Pluto), welcome inspiration (Jupiter), and restructure our reality (Saturn). Leo, the sign of the heart, asks us to fall in love with ourselves and the creativity we hold inside, and share it with the world.

And then there’s all the stuff going in Aries which is INTENSE! We have Black Moon Lilith (wild feminine) joining forces with Eris (Goddess of Discord) – both hanging out with Mars (God of War). Yikes. These three are scary enough on their own, all sitting on their dark thrones at 22 Aries. They bring the absolute insistence to be ourselves, define our boundaries and fight if need be to make a point. Have you seen the violence in American cities over the past week? Stand offs and clashes between protestors and police, looters… and that horrible explosion in Beirut. These three are squaring (causing tension) with the three in Capricorn, causing the fall of old patriarchal structures, institutions, and governments (Saturn). Change is in the air.

This affects us personally too. We need to find our deep, repressed, toxic wounds and give them some air. Collectively, there is a new spotlight on the toxic wounds of slavery, racism, sexism and wealth disparity. It’s all coming up to be healed and shifted. We need to own all that we are, all that we’ve done, and all that we want to be; moving forward with justice and compassion for our fellow woman and man.

Mars square Pluto will be exact on Thursday, and will be continuing into October. This square can be violent and will turn the heat way up on simple disagreements. Be diplomatic and avoid risks. Seriously. The pandemic and rioting can increase the danger on the streets. Remember Pluto represents repressed sexuality, ambition, anger and masculinity. Lilith, Eris and Mars have the keys are letting this energy loose. Men in general, and Aries people, can get into a lot of trouble the second half of this year.

Monday, August 10th: Moon in Taurus. Authority can be stubborn today, so best to not rock the boat. However, if you want to bring stability to an issue, today is a good day to work on it.

Tuesday, August 11th: Moon in Taurus. Refocus on your needs and home life. Walk in nature, work in the garden and cook something scrumptious. Beware of overspending with online shopping.

Wednesday, August 12th: Moon into Gemini. Chatty day, good for talking, sociability and online activities. Tensions are rising though with tomorrow’s event, so don’t dig too deep.

Thursday, August 13th: Moon in Gemini. Mars, Lilith and Eris in EXACT square to Pluto. Stay in bed lol. Seriously though, lay low today and stay under the radar. This square could ignite big confrontations.

Friday, August 14th: Moon in Gemini, going into Cancer at 4:35pm Pacific. Probably the best day for reaching an understanding with others. Good movie night.

Saturday, August 15th: Moon in Cancer, Uranus RETROGRADE in Taurus. Get yourself grounded and centered before undertaking anything. Bring some compassion into your day.

Sunday, August 16th: Moon in Cancer continues… be kind to yourself and others. We are in the realm of the New Moon, so contemplate what you’d like to see happen in your life over the next month.

Week of August 3rd

Extremely rare atmospheric phenomenon called rainbow bridge or circumhorizontal arc: when the sun is at least 58º above horizon and ice crystals in clouds form rainbows.

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 11 Leo

Venus at 25 Gemini (neutral)
Mars at 19 Aries (Rulership)

Saturday was Lughnasadh, the first harvest festival of the year. It’s a Gaelic festival that was observed in ancient times by jumping over bonfires, athletic contests, community festivals, huge feasts and celebrations of the abundance of the Earth i.e. the cornucopia. It still widely celebrated throughout Ireland, Wales, Scotland and England, and is always held on August 1st. This is the midpoint between the Summer Solstice (June 21st) and Autumn Equinox (Sept. 22nd). You can read more here. Basically, whatever seeds you planted around the Spring Equinox of this year (March 20th) will start to bear fruit now. This can be a figurative harvest too, if you look at what you’re reaping in your life right now.

Lughnasadh, “Lúnasa” Modern Irish) Lùnastal (Scottish Gaelic) August 1st: Beginning of the harvest season, and offering of First Fruits.

We begin this week with the Full Moon at 11 Aquarius, which symbolizes liberty, community, invention, rebellion, and the desire for something new. This Full moon and Sun form a perfect square with Uranus in Taurus, which is Aquarius’s ruler. Uranus brings sudden change, liberation, radical ideas and shocking events. We might struggle more with the limits we are currently living with, as well as the avoidance of people. The Full Moon in Aquarius is a turning point, and often reveals visions, the truth, or hidden realities. Be open to revelations this week.

Monday, August 3rd: Full Moon in Aquarius. Express your genius and your gifts. No one else in the world can share your unique energy, so it’s up to you. People are friendly, and progress can be made in communications. With an Aquarius Moon, video chat with your friends or community. Mercury opposition Pluto is exact. This can be heavy, and can lead to pessimism, anxiety and depression. Practice mindfulness today and avoid heavy conversations.

Tuesday, August 4th: Moon void-of-course in Aquarius until 7:30pm Pacific. A void Moon always means to follow previously established plans. Stay away from risks and stabilize what’s in progress. Think about the future. With an Aquarius Moon, it’s good to “detach and observe” rather than bursting out emotionally. Mars square Jupiter is exact, amplifying Mars square Pluto. Case numbers and deaths could elevate significantly. If you’re protesting be very careful of the virus AND the police.

Wednesday, August 5th: Moon in Pisces. Follow your intuition, go with the flow, and make time for solitude. Mercury went into Leo last night, so folks could become passionate and stubborn over the next few weeks. Focus on creativity, writing and music.

Thursday, August 6th: Moon in Pisces. Meditate and contemplate. Music and spirituality soothe the soul and ignite our imaginations.

Friday, August 7th: Moon In Pisces. Creative and peaceful day. Venus enters Cancer, which brings us closer to food, home and family. For writers and artists, imagination is enhanced and we can capture emotions in art. Jupiter sextile Neptune is a beautiful influence on our creativity, and we might produce something special and unique.

Saturday, August 8th: Moon in Aries. We will be full of energy and ambition today, but get yourself grounded before undertaking anything. Lots of energy for socializing, adventures, creativity, and beginning new projects.

Sunday, August 9th: Moon in Aries. We are still feeling energetic and good progress can be made in the morning and afternoon. Moon enters Taurus in the evening, bringing our attention to the coziness of home. Nice evening to cook and be around loved ones. Mercury trine Chiron is exact today and can bring new ideas surrounding our emotional wounds and how to heal them.

Week of July 27th

“Echo and Narcissus” by John William Waterhouse

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 4 Leo
Mercury at 15 Cancer (weak)
Venus at 20 Gemini (neutral)
Mars at 15 Aries (Rulership)
Jupiter RETROGRADE at 20 Capricorn (fall, very weak)
Saturn RETROGRADE at 28 Capricorn (rulership)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 23 Capricorn
Neptune at 20 Pisces (rulership, strong)
North Node at 27 Gemini

The Sun is now in Leo, the playful sign of the Summer Lion. The Sun represents the Soul, and the sign of Leo is it’s natural home. The Sun rules healing, leadership, creativity, romance, children, and our ability to shine. It’s presence in your chart indicates the most important area of your life. We’ve made it through the transformative eclipses of June/July, now we reestablish our new identities in the brightness of our star.

This week sees the start of some amazing planetary oppositions and “square offs”. Mercury (the Mind) is opposing the heavyweight planets of the “Covid point” – Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn. Then Mars (drive, strength) comes along and squares these same planets. The Saturn-Pluto conjunction that set off this year’s pandemic, social upheaval and global restructuring, will be shaken and stirred by these aspects. Astrologically, each of us is being transformed by the power of Pluto, the seriousness of Saturn, the truth of Jupiter and the heat of Mars I hope these tensions in the sky won’t translate to more violent protests here on Earth. Take care of yourself and your loved ones. If you’re going to a protest be extra careful, especially around the police.

Both collectively and individually, this is a time to face our deepest selves and to own all that we are, all that we’ve done, and all that we want to be. 

Monday, July 27th: Moon in Scorpio. Mercury squares Mars today, which can bring opportunities for truth sharing and blunt opinions. With the Moon in Scorpio, it’s best to avoid “going there”. Keep things as light as you can, because folks are sensitive right now. Venus square Neptune today gives us creative and artistic opportunities, but we have to actually DO it. Daydreaming or escaping reality doesn’t count. These two aspects are influencing us all week.

Tuesday, July 28th: Moon in Scorpio. Transform and rebirth yourself. Set yourself on fire like the Phoenix, and fly high like an eagle. Scorpio is the sign of letting go of something you’ve outgrown, and welcoming the new you.

Wednesday, July 29th: Moon in Sagittarius. It’s a day of motion and looking at the big picture. It’s a lighter mood if you need to express something difficult or challenging to someone.

Thursday, June 30th: Moon into Sagittarius. Day of truth and justice. Pragmatic, honorable, and well-thought-out actions will bring progress to your ambitions. Mercury opposes Jupiter today, so commit to facts rather than fantasies.

Friday, June 31st: Moon in Capricorn. A serious tone for people seeking romance and fun. Time is better spent on completing responsibilities, cooking, resting, and getting grounded.

Saturday, August 1st: Moon in Capricorn. Get yourself grounded and centered before undertaking anything. Today the Mercury Opposition to Pluto is exact. The Moon is in the same area and could create stubbornness, inflexibility and stony silences. Journaling, meditation, online research and healing are a great use of time. It could be an evening of transformative conversations involving sex, healing, ambitions and money.

Sunday, August 2nd: Moon in Aquarius. Sun square Uranus exact. Watch out for risky behavior, since Uranus brings spontaneity, rebellion, and independence. Focus on the future, and expressing your unique genius.

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 ❤
