We have a New Moon at 9 Gemini coming next Monday, May 30th, so THIS week is about finishing things. We are in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle, so rest this week, wrap stuff up, pay off debts, and clear your life of stagnant energy. The Sun has left the earthy pastures of Taurus, and is now traveling through the early degrees of Gemini, the social butterfly.

Meanwhile, Saturn has ground to a halt, preparing to turn retrograde on June 4th. Mercury retrograde has just fallen backwards into Taurus, so we are going over old ground until June 3rd when Mercury goes Direct. With Mercury retrograde in Taurus, the volatility of the stock market will continue. It’s a good time to review values and investments.

This is Gemini 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 Gemini cycle will affect you, book a short reading with me here for $45.

Monday, May 23rd: Moon in Pisces blends with the lovely Moon energy of Monday… do Magick involving emotions, art, music, and women’s issues. Have some solitude today and reflect on things. Daydreams, music and movies are always highlighted with a Pisces Moon. Eat something sweet and let yourself be creative. Sun sextiles Jupiter which lifts our mood, and Mercury retrograde sextiles Mars which activates our minds.

Tuesday, May 24th: Moon in Pisces moves into Aries at 2:39pm Pacific. Then, MARS enters his homeland of Aries at 4:17pm Pacific, which supercharges our libidos, egos and ambitions. Mars has been languishing in Pisces since mid April, so moving into Aries is a huge, positive fresh start – particularly for men. It’s further inflated by the approaching conjunction between Mars and Jupiter on Sunday. Unfortunately the conflicts in the world could also get more heated and angry. Pursue actions that require courage. Venus sextile Saturn today brings good interactions with authority figures.

Wednesday, May 25th: Moon in Aries with Saturn standing still overhead brings egos and ambitions to the forefront. Be mentally alert and avoid temperamental people. Mercury retrograde in Taurus trines Pluto too, so communicating can clear the air. There are no trivial, light conversations with this aspect. Avoid headstrong, “fuck it” kinds of attitudes. There could be control issues or power struggles with others, especially online.

Thursday, May 26th: Moon in Aries goes void at 8:20pm Pacific, so make it an early night. The Moon and Venus both square Pluto today, which means we (particularly women) have emotional work to do. Power plays and control issues abound. Focus on healing and reformation.

Friday, May 27th: Moon in Taurus, on a Friday (day of Venus) makes for a perfect date night. Venus is about to enter her home kingdom of Taurus tomorrow, so there could be sparks flying today. Her square with Pluto yesterday is still in effect too, so prepare for healing, reconciliation with the past and soul retrieval.

Saturday, May 28th: Venus returns home to the sign of Taurus in the early morning. The Goddess of Love is confident and sure-footed in the sign of the Bull, and the next few weeks are great for building up your resources, tending animals, creating art, walking in nature, and hopefully stabilizing the world’s financial markets. Mars and Venus are now both in their rulerships and able to express themselves fully. Real joy and progress can be found in relationships over the next few weeks. Get outside and enjoy nature. Also, make a conscious effort to remember your dreams tonight, there will be messages.

Sunday, May 29th: Mars conjunct Jupiter at 3:31am Pacific, and Moon enters Gemini at 10:23am. Whatever you dreamed about last night has importance so write it down. This aspect brings out the hero in each of us since we are driven towards personal truth. Break through procrastination and follow your passions. We are in the realm of the New Moon in Gemini tomorrow, and our minds are gearing up for a rebirth.

Full Moon at 25 Scorpio last night at 9:14pm Pacific. The Moon is weak here, in her fall, meaning that emotions are not easily expressed. Scorpio is the Halloween sign, representing Autumn and decay. Taurus represents springtime, which emerges from the decay as the blooming and flowering of life. Both are dependent on the other and are deeply tied to life on earth. A Scorpio Moon can bring up issues around intimacy and vulnerability, power and control. Use this week to cut the cords of the past and put your energy into the present.

This is the development, the fruition, of whatever was happening two weeks ago. It’s a solar eclipse, which heightens everything and creates a “do or die” attitude. The Full Moon also squares Saturn in Aquarius. We look at our subconscious motivations and turn toward a new direction.

Plotinus wrote: “The stars are like letters that inscribe themselves at every moment in the sky. Everything in the world is full of signs. All events are coordinated. All things depend on each other. Everything breathes together.”

Monday, May 16th: Moon in Sagittarius, but last night’s Full Moon Eclipse in Scorpio is in full effect. No risk taking or pushing boundaries today, focus on yourself and your needs. Venus is conjunct Chiron, which promotes HUGE healing in relationships. Take a fresh look at your inner wounds and be open for new realizations. Today is transformative, so take an unwavering look at your shadow side.

Tuesday, May 17th: Moon in Sagittarius all day. Look at goals and aim for the highest ideals. Jupiter is squaring Lilith for the next couple of weeks, which can expand acts of authenticity and boundary setting. This aspect activates women, self esteem and fearlessness. Also last night we had a biggie – Mars conjunct Neptune near midnight. Strong energy for artistic, romantic, musical or spiritual pursuits. Hopefully no bad news regarding water.

Wednesday, May 18th: Moon in Capricorn, which is the Moon’s detriment. Another tough day for emotional sharing, so hold off if you can. The rest of the week is about hard work and earned rewards, because Saturn insists on commitment. The Full Moon is still unfolding, so there will be continued developments with current issues.

Thursday, May 19th: Moon in Capricorn all day so we follow our drives and ambitions. Do not seek concessions from authority figures – leave that until next week. Take stock of life and strengthen the foundation. Mercury sextile Jupiter is exact which lightens the mood.

Friday, May 20th: Moon in Aquarius. The Sun leaves Taurus for GEMINI at 6:23pm Pacific! We move from an Earth sign to an Air sign, which makes all of us feel lighter. With Gemini, our minds and social circles are activated. Lots of chattiness… talking is the way forward.

Saturday, May 21st: Moon in Aquarius and Sun conjunct Mercury is exact. These aspects, plus the Suns’ entrance into Gemini, make this a very “Airy” day. Mercury is retrograde though, so reworking old ideas or reorganizing your life are the best outlets. Air energy is mental activities, studying, short trips, puzzles, communication and community. Enjoy learning and good conversation.

Sunday, May 22nd: Moon in Pisces enters her 4th quarter, and we are in the dark of the Moon. Now is the time for solitude, introspection, and rest. Mercury moves backwards into Taurus and immediately squares Saturn (in Aquarius) in the morning. Guard against negative thinking or arguments with authorities. Release old habits and thinking patterns.

It’s officially eclipse season! Prepare for shifts and revelations. We have a New Moon Eclipse at 10 Taurus this Saturday. Also, Pluto is stationing (standing still) and going retrograde on Friday until October, and this creates more intensity. Right now we are in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle. Try and let yourself rest this week, wrap stuff up, pay off debts, and clear your life of stagnant energy. The Sun has left the fires of Aries, and is now traveling through the early degrees of Taurus, the Spring Bull!

Saturday night we have a rare conjunction between Venus and Jupiter, with Neptune nearby. This aspect is one of the best for romance and love. There is a strong, Venus undercurrent to the week with this conjunction, including the Eclipse in Taurus – also ruled by Venus. You could make real breakthroughs in the areas of creativity and romance, plus an eclipse helps you find the truth in any situation.

Monday, April 25th: Moon in Pisces blends with the lovely Moon energy of Monday… good day for Magick involving emotions, art, music, and women’s issues. Have some solitude today and reflect on things. Daydreams, music and movies are always highlighted with a Pisces Moon. Eat something sweet and let yourself be creative. Moon runs into Mars today, so emotions and conversations could be volatile.

Tuesday, April 26th: Moon in Pisces encounters Venus, Jupiter and Neptune in turn today, giving this day a healing, loving, expansive vibe. Make good use of this energy! Connect with people that are important in your life, and focus on things you have control over. The Moon, Venus, Jupiter and Neptune together like this, in the loving, healing sign of Pisces, is a rare event.

Wednesday, April 27th: Moon in Aries with Pluto standing still overhead really shifts the energy from yesterday. Be mentally alert and avoid temperamental people for the rest of the week if you can. Mercury in Taurus is close to a trine with Pluto, so communicating can clear the air. Still there are no trivial, light conversations with this aspect. With Pluto standing still, and the Moon in Aries, avoid headstrong, “fuck it” kinds of attitudes. There could be control issues or power struggles with others, especially online.

Thursday, April 28th: Moon in Aries all day, this time squaring Pluto in Capricorn. More developments could appear from yesterday’s tensions and upheavals. We are in the realm of the New Moon Eclipse in Taurus, and people are cautious and stubborn right now.

Friday, April 29th: Moon in Aries goes void-of-course at 2:38pm, moving into Taurus at 5:15pm Pacific. A Taurus Moon, on a Friday (day of Venus) makes for a perfect date night, but remember this is an eclipse so anything can happen. Venus is in a fabulous position right now, being exalted in Pisces, so there could be some sparks flying today. But then of course, we have Pluto finally going retrograde at 11:38am, which can bring up hidden, toxic energies from the depths of the soul. AND, Mercury moves into Gemini! This is a wild day with many changes, so go easy on yourself.

Saturday, April 30th: New Moon solar eclipse at 10 Taurus occurs today at 1:28pm Pacific. Get outside and enjoy nature. During an eclipse, we can see issues or perspectives that are normally hidden, so take a good look around and listen for messages. Tonight there is the annual Venus conjunct Jupiter aspect, which is one of the most happy, loving and romantic aspects of all! Enjoy yourself.

Sunday, May 1st: BELTANE. Moon in Taurus continues developments from yesterday’s eclipse. Also, the Moon conjuncts Uranus which can spark sudden, unexpected tensions and events. With Uranus in Taurus being activated, try new approaches to earthly matters.

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 moves through the very last degrees of Libra this week, culminating with a brilliant Full Moon on Wednesday at 27 Aries. This Moon brings peak experiences with survival, exploration, physicality, courage, and our personal story. Aries is a feisty sign, and indicates a new beginning. Since this Full Moon takes place in the last degrees of Aries, we are completing a personal cycle of growth, and something new is about to begin. The Sun enters Scorpio this Friday night.

The big influence on the week however, is Jupiter and Mercury both going Direct within the next 24 hours. Although they begin moving forward, they will be standing still at the same degree for several days before picking up forward motion. The blending of these two planets brings big ideas and the ability to verbalize them. Make sure that big talking is not full of hot air though, since Jupiter can be excessive.

What’s happened in your life since June 20 when Jupiter went retrograde? If you’ve been experiencing obstacles to progress, your path will open up now. Jupiter is the planet of opportunities, healing, wealth, success, justice, philanthropy, optimism and spiritual attainment. Jupiter is a jovial, just and honest King.

In the bigger picture, we are on the cusp of Halloween, and the air is alive with Magick. The Sun and Mars are traveling close together in Libra; both trining Jupiter in Aquarius all week. With Jupiter, Mercury, Saturn and Pluto stationary in the skies overhead, we are in an evolutionary, accelerated, and soulful landscape of exciting pathways to explore.

Monday, October 18th: Moon in Aries. Jupiter stationed Direct in the middle of the night, and Mercury stations DIRECT at 10 degrees Libra. This is not the best combination for mercurial activities like driving or talking. Stick to light conversations today, and let competitive people win. It’s not worth it to get into power struggles. We are in the orb of the Full Moon coming Wednesday evening, so keep a low profile.

Tuesday, October 19th: Moon in Aries trines Venus in Sagittarius, which is a happy vibe. With the Direct stations yesterday we want to charge full speed ahead. The Moon here on a Tuesday (Day of Mars) is auspicious, but unfortunately Mars itself is still in it’s detriment (hard place) in Libra. No Mars Magick right now. Men can be grumpy. The warrior wants to charge ahead, not process feelings.

Wednesday, October 20th: Full Moon in Aries 7:57am Pacific. Moon is void all morning, then moves into Taurus at 1:00pm. Aries is great energy for exploring new things, being physical, and starting new projects, but with Mercury standing still all week I would wait until November to really roll out ideas. Moon in Aries can make us headstong, and disagreements can erupt quickly. Avoid “fuck it” kinds of attitudes. We have a beautiful harvest moon rising around 7:30pm Pacific.

Thursday, October 21st: Moon in Taurus conjuncts Uranus which can bring sudden changes to our day. Think about the future and the direction you want your life to go. At 9:20pm, Mars in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn, giving us a situation to work through regarding relationships and ambitions. This is a tough aspect, so avoid risks and ego battles. Instead, attune yourself to nature, food, and the physical delights of Taurus.

Friday, October 22nd: Moon in Taurus goes void-of-course at 1:35pm Pacific for the rest of the day! A Taurus Moon is usually romantic on a Friday (day of Venus), but Venus is currently in her detriment in Scorpio making everyone sensitive and power driven. You can deeply connect with someone special right now, but where it leads is uncertain. Sun enters Scorpio at 9:51pm, officially ushering in Halloween.

Saturday, October 23rd: Moon in Gemini makes one trine with Saturn in Aquarius in the afternoon. Talk your way through any heaviness that arises. It’s a chatty, social day, so get out, have some fun and let your youthful side out to play.

Sunday, October 24th: Moon in Gemini has three aspects with Mercury, Venus and Neptune. The opposition with Venus means we need to reach out and try to understand where other people are coming from. The square to Neptune ignites our imaginations, but also means we can explore our truths through our personal spiritual beliefs.

We’re having a new beginning, brought about by last Wednesday’s New Moon in Libra. Last week there were several conjunctions with Mercury and Mars, along with Pluto and Saturn stationing Direct, which made this New Moon INTENSE. Did you have a weird, heavy week with lots of odd developments coming out of nowhere? You’re not alone! When Saturn and Pluto change direction, the foundations of our lives, and their stability, become very real.

What’s happening is we’ve had six planets retrograde ALL Summer. That’s a lot. We’ve been “redoing, restructuring, reflecting” for months, but this is all turning around THIS WEEK. It’s bound to bring up a lot of stuff, and we might feel quite overwhelmed.

Patience and discipline rule the week ahead. Saturn and Pluto are traditionally “malefics”, meaning their energies can be dark, and can bring up issues that require thoughtful action or hard work. This coming week, Jupiter and Mercury also become stationary, so we have an odd week of four planets standing still at once. This can bring heaviness and intensity, so take everything a day at a time.

Focus your attention on the “seeds you wish to grow”. What you focus on, and where you put your energy, is what is going to manifest. Right now, with the Sun in Libra, we are focused on sharing, and intimacy. Libra sets the stage for Scorpio’s deep soul connection. We are evolving through relationship.

Monday, October 11th: Moon into Capricorn at 11:15am is underlined by Saturn stationing Direct at 6 Aquarius yesterday. The mood is heavy now, and most people are still recovering from the powerful, unsettling New Moon last Wednesday. Saturn and Capricorn force us to deal with the reality of our lives. The good news, is that through hard work and mature decisions most of us can make better lives for ourselves. Today is a day to work hard.

Tuesday, October 12th: Moon in Capricorn reaches it’s 2nd quarter, and makes three squares to Mercury, Mars and the Sun respectively. This could be a tough day of holding back emotions and handling other things instead. Try not to argue, just let authority figures have their way today; it will benefit you down the road. With so many squares, there’s work to do to make your relationships and ambitions match up.

Wednesday, October 13th: Moon void, then into Aquarius at 1:47pm Pacific. The Moon is uncomfortable with unemotional Aquarius, so it’s best to be friendly and leave it at that. No deep discussions today. Venus sextile Saturn occurs around 7:30pm which is harmonious. You might need some reassurance from your partner, or an action showing committment. For artists, writers, musicians and painters, this is the time to get to work. It’s a great aspect for “paring things down” and getting your point across.

Thursday, October 14th: Moon in Aquarius makes some nice early morning aspects, setting the day off on a good note. It’s a peaceful day. Aquarius Moon is generally good for negotiation, but with Mercury stationing right now, I would wait until next week. Have fun and explore your genius.

Friday, October 15th: Moon in Aquarius trines Mars in Libra at 1am, which can bring up powerful dreams. The Moon will be void-of-course ALL DAY until 7:22pm Pacific. Don’t do anything stupid or risky. The good news, is the Sun in Libra trines Jupiter in Aquarius before dawn, which lends an optimistic, pleasant vibe to the day. Moon in Pisces makes for a romantic evening. Let your imagination lead you.

Saturday, October 16th: Moon in Pisces brings creativity with fruitful results, while Mercury and Jupiter have both ground to a halt, preparing to go Direct on Monday! Communications and attitudes could get wonky this weekend, so take it all with a grain of salt. We are psychically open right now, so be around trustworthy and authentic people. Let your instincts speak; be around water if possible. Sit at the beach and dream.

Sunday, October 17th: Moon in Pisces goes void at 4:24pm Pacific for the rest of the evening. There’s a few benign, friendly aspects today, but the Sun squares newly Direct Pluto right before dawn. Our plans need more thoughtfulness and work. You can do it. There’s something each of us will have to release in order to progress – it could be an attitude, concept, person, place or thing.

We started on Monday with a Full Moon at 28 Pisces, rising as a beautiful harvest moon around 7:30pm Pacific. The energies of this Full Moon will unfold over the next several days. Pisces is peak experiences with our spirituality, right brain, psychic abilities, healing, endings, and the cosmic. Overcome victim consciousness; you are not a victim of anyone or anything. Since this Full Moon takes place at the very last degree of Pisces, we are REALLY wrapping something up – something is ending and something is about to start.

The Sun moves through the last degrees of Virgo, then enters Libra on Wednesday at 12:21pm, heralding the Fall Equinox! It is equal day and equal night – a time of finding balance in our lives. Libra is justice, coexistence, law, liberty, equality, and fraternity. With the Full Moon and the Equinox happening together, this is a powerful week of transition.

Monday, September 20th: Full Moon in Pisces at 4:55pm Pacific, goes void-of-course, then enters Aries at 8:13pm. Have some solitude today and reflect on things. Daydreams, music and movies are always highlighted with a Pisces Moon. Have fun, eat something sweet, and let yourself be creative. Also today we have Mercury in Libra trine Jupiter in Aquarius which greatly enhances communication, writing, luck and prospects. Grab any oportunities that arise today.

Tuesday, September 21st: Moon in Aries has us feeling frisky and charging full speed ahead. The Moon here on a Tuesday (Day of Mars) is auspicious, but unfortunately Mars itself is in it’s detriment (hard place) in Libra. The warrior doesn’t like having to sit in Libra’s tea parties and design committee meetings. Channel all that energy into things that feel like an easy win, that will boost your self esteem.

Wednesday, September 22nd: FALL EQUINOX. Sun enters LIBRA at 12:21pm Pacific time. Equal day equal night. Mercury squares Pluto at dawn, bring an edge to communications today. There are no trivial, light conversations with this aspect. Because of the square, and the Moon still in Aries, avoid headstong, “fuck it” kinds of attitudes. There could be control issues or power struggles with others, especially online. Moon in Aries goes void at 7:05pm. Watch for a huge Moon tonight.

Thursday, September 23rd: Moon in Taurus is inconjunct with the Sun and Mars, which can bring up health related issues. Venus in Scorpio opposes Uranus in Taurus in the predawn hours, which can bring an element of unpredictability to our day. The Moon squares Saturn in Aquarius too, which can bring a cold, pessimistic mood. This could be a rough day, so avoid risks and important conversations. Be aware that people are cautious and stubborn during a Taurus Moon.

Friday, September 24th: Moon in Taurus on a Friday (day of Venus) makes for a perfect date night, however Venus magick is not advised as the planet is in her detriment (not happy) in Scorpio. Also, the Moon conjuncts Uranus and opposes Venus today, which can spark sudden, unexpected tensions and events. Oppositions, especially between Taurus and Scorpio, can make for steamy connections though too. With Uranus in Taurus being activated, try new approaches to earthly matters.

Saturday, September 25th: Moon is void-of-course in Taurus ALL DAY, until she enters Gemini at 5:36pm. That’s a LONG void period! Follow plans that have been previously agreed upon, OR stay home and clean your house. At 2:50pm, Mars in Libra makes a lovely trine with Saturn in Aquarius, which gives us lots of energy, drive, ambition and focus.

Sunday, September 26th: Moon in Gemini has three lovely trines with the Sun in Libra, Saturn in Aquarius, and Mars in Libra. That’s a whole lot of Air happening today, which means we can explore our truths, understand each other, and climb our personal mountains. Starhawk says mountain tops symbolize the element Air, so go climbing today.

This week, we are building up to the Full Moon at 29 Pisces, which will happen next Monday, September 20th. This is the last week we have with the Sun in Virgo. The Sun moves through the last degrees of Virgo, and into Libra next Wednesday, Sept. 22nd. This will be the Fall Equinox – equal day and equal night – the great balance. More on that next Sunday.

This is a quiet week astrologically, but we are moving towards Mercury going retrograde on September 26th, and the intensity of the Saturn and Pluto stations of early October. This could bring up more issues with the pandemic – perhaps another surge. Saturn and Pluto were the planets that began the pandemic in January 2020. When they change direction, the foundations of our lives, and their stability, become apparent.

Monday, September 13th: Moon in Sagittarius enters it’s second quarter. There’s a ton of aspects with the Moon today, so there will be a huge amount of information and energy flying around. Just roll with it. People will be in a happy, optimistic mood with the Moon in Sag, so we begin the week on a good note.

Tuesday, September 14th: Moon in Capricorn. The Sun in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces today, which can bring confusion. Use your instincts, and take other people’s resolutions with a grain of salt. Avoid overindulging in alcohol, food or shopping as ways to handle stress. Mars goes into Libra in the afternoon, which is the sign of it’s detriment. It will be there for a few weeks, and during that time we could find difficulties with advancement. Be patient with men too.

Wednesday, September 15th: Moon in Capricorn, and the beginning of Yom Kippur. The Moon is uncomfortable and heavy here, and authorities can be rigid and uncaring. Energy is hard to get off the ground, control issues arise, along with power struggles. Moon conjuncts Pluto in the middle of the night, giving us intense dreams. Put some lavender under your pillow tonight and try to remember them.

Thursday, September 16th: Moon in Aquarius trines Mars newly in Libra – which could bring up productive conversations in relationships. Don’t expect a lot from men though, because Mars (their representation) is very uncomfortable in Libra. Sun tines Pluto in the early evening, which brings messages about our soul’s current evolution. Sun trine Pluto is powerful, because our Star, the Sun, is connecting harmoniously with Pluto in the outer reaches of our solar system. Look at the big picture, decide where you want to go, and release anything standing in your way.

Friday, September 17th: Moon in Aquarius squares Venus in Scorpio and conjuncts Saturn in the middle of the night, giving some heaviness and intensity to our dreams. This is just a prelude to the main event of the day: Venus in Scorpio square Saturn in Aquarius. There could be a reality check, or wake up call, in the arenas of love and art. A square means you have to put some work into progressing. Also, stay away from protests and marches this weekend. Seriously. They may not turn out well with this aspect as a backdrop.

Saturday, September 18th: Moon void-of-course all morning in Aquarius, then enters Pisces at 1:22pm Pacific. It’s a floaty type of day; great for dreaming and water adventures. Go swimming, or just sit at the beach and dream. The main thing is we are all psychically open right now, so be around trustworthy and authentic people. We are in the orb of the Full Moon coming Monday evening, so keep a low profile.

Sunday, September 19th: Moon in Pisces trines Venus in Scorpio, and sextiles Uranus in Taurus in the afternoon. The Pisces/Scorpio/Taurus combination is great for expressing one’s imagination. Be creative today, and let your instincts speak. Uranus activates our genius, and gives rise to sudden revelations and events.

For the next several days, we are building up to the Full Moon at 29 Aquarius, which will happen in the pre-dawn hours of Sunday, August 22nd. The energies of this Full Moon will unfold NEXT week, and through the end of August. We will have peak experiences with our genius, our social circle, gains, and personal story. Since this Full Moon takes place at the very last degree of Aquarius, we are REALLY wrapping something up – something is ending and something is about to be born anew.

This is the last week we have with the Sun in it’s natural home of Leo. The Sun moves through the last degrees of Leo, and moves into Virgo this coming Sunday, a few hours after the Full Moon in Aquarius! It’s like two Full Moons in one day, since we flip from Leo/Aquarius to Virgo/Pisces in the space of a few hours. Sunday the 22nd is a BIG day.

In other news, Mercury entered Virgo last Wednesday, and is now in the sign of it’s greatest expression (exaltation). The winged messenger is in his home kingdom, so if you need focus, clarity, writing or speaking abilities – Wednesdays are the days to engage in airy Magick. Mercury is only here for a month or so every year, so make good use of this time. In my opinion, Mercury is the planet of Magick and rules the occult.

Monday, August 16th: Moon in Sagittarius squares Mercury and Mars. This will give some foreshadowing on the issues of this week, because Mercury and Mars are traveling closely together all week long. Our energies and our minds are linked and operating in harmony during this build up to the Full Moon. Pay attention to what happens today. Also Venus enters Libra in the middle of the night, yay! Much more comfortable placement for the goddess of love.

Tuesday, August 17th: Moon in Sagittarius goes void-of-course at 6:43pm Pacific. There’s five aspects today too, the biggest being Sun inconjunct Pluto. You could see a small crisis arise that brings you to a turning point. Also, Uranus is slowing down and preparing to station retrograde on Thursday. Life starts feeling different.

Wednesday, August 18th: Moon in Capricorn trines both Mars and Mercury today, as the two planets conjunct each other in Virgo. That’s a powerful trio coming together. Mars is drive, energy, and strategy, and will send us messages about our ambitions today. The Moon is uncomfortable and heavy here, and authorities can be rigid and uncaring. Energy is hard to get off the ground, control issues arise along with power struggles. Keep a low profile today since Uranus (sudden events) is stationing.

Thursday, August 19th: Moon in Capricorn goes void-of-course at 5pm Pacific, and Uranus stations retrograde at 6:40pm. The call to be free is strong; expect the unexpected. Sun also opposes Jupiter around the same time! Look out for arrogance, indulgence, taking risks and being overly optimistic. Whew. There’s just a ton of energy flying around today, so just try and be present and focus on what you have control over.

Friday, August 20th: Moon in Aquarius makes a lovely trine with Venus in Libra, and then conjuncts Saturn. Mercury in Virgo trines Uranus in the middle of the night too, which means anything can happen today. That’s some wonderful airy energy that we can use to enhance our communication and focus our minds. We are now in the orb of the Full Moon coming Sunday morning, so don’t go out tonight. Try new approaches to earthly matters.

Saturday, August 21st: Moon in Aquarius squares Uranus in the early morning. Some new information will help us turn an emotional corner. Also, an Aquarian Moon on a Saturday is great for saturnian Magick, i.e. discipline, structure and focus. The Full Moon rising tonight will be one of the brightest of the year. Remember dream messages.

Sunday, August 22nd: Full Moon at 29 Aquarius at 5:02am Pacific, then into Pisces at 5:43am. Even though the Moon flips into Pisces for the day, the influence of the Aquarian Full Moon is with us. Aquarius and Pisces are multi-dimensional signs, so we can use our imaginations and readily access other “frequencies”. Mars trines Uranus in the middle of the night, which activates our genius, and gives rise to sudden revelations and events.

Climb a high peak and watch the Sunset and the Moon rise at the same time. This is a powerful, revolutionary Full Moon, and it’s the brightest of the year. The nature of Aquarius i.e. independence, genius, science, courage, revolution, will all be at it’s highest within each of us.

We still have a heavy water influence as the week begins, culminating with the airy Aquarian Full Moon on Friday. The Sun moves through the last degrees of Cancer, and we are wrapping up our deep emotional reflections from the past month. The energy is settling. On Thursday, the Sun moves into it’s natural home of LEO!!! Now the focus turns to creative play. Leo is a time of celebration of what it means to be alive. It’s self expression, hosting parties, and making your art. Leo wants to shine it’s light outwardly and share it.

Leo is also identity, and we discover who we are THROUGH being creative. What are you creating? What do you enjoy doing? We see ourselves through our play, our hobbies and crafts, our songs, and through our children. If you are still feeling a little lost from all the massive changes last year, try creating something. You will see yourself in that creation.

Mars and Venus were in exact conjunction last week at 20 Leo, and they are still traveling together this week. Let the inner child in you come out and play, create, take risks and celebrate life! When Mars (masculine) and Venus (feminine) come together, they CREATE. Be playful and romantic with your Love. If you’re single, you can use this energy to balance yourself, because all of us have a male and a female side.

Monday, July 19th: Moon void, then into Sagittarius at 2:08pm Pacific. The Moon makes six different aspects today, most of them positive. The day begins with the Scorpio Moon and Cancerian Sun trining Neptune over in Pisces. Imagination is enhanced and you can make breakthroughs in the areas of love and art.

Tuesday, July 20th: Moon in Sagittarius makes some lovely sextiles today. Before dawn, we have Mercury in Cancer sextile Uranus in Taurus, which can fire up our intellect AND bring surprises. Try new approaches to earthly matters, especially at work. Enjoy the optimistic mood as enter the orb of the Full Moon on Thursday. Life starts feeling different.

Wednesday, July 21st: Moon void, then into Capricorn at 3:36pm. The Moon is uncomfortable and heavy here, and authorities can be rigid and uncaring. Energy is hard to get off the ground, control issues arise along with power struggles. Keep a low profile today since we are in the orb of the Full Moon.

Thursday, July 22nd: Moon in Capricorn, and Sun into Leo at 7:26am Pacific. The Full Moon energy is powerful now, and today could be intense. The call to be free is strong. The Moon is positioning itself between Pluto AND Saturn, which creates positions or attitudes for change that we cannot escape. This is such a powerful placement. We HAVE to evolve right now, there’s no other choice. Be gentle with yourself and let it all flow through you.

Friday, July 23rd: Full Moon at 0 Aquarius at 7:37pm Pacific. It will be Full as it appears on the horizon, so try and climb a high peak and watch the Sunset and the Moon rise at the same time. This is a powerful, revolutionary Full Moon, and it’s the brightest of the year. Also, 0 and 1 degrees are the the most powerful degrees of any sign, so the nature of Aquarius i.e. independence, genius, science, courage, revolution, will all be at their highest within each of us. We start the day with the Moon void-of-course in Capricorn at 9:34am, then into Aquarius at 5:12pm. That’s a long void period, so again practice restraint. Today is a swim through aethers and different dimensions – perfect for artists and lovers. We are currently harvesting what we began in February, when the Sun was in Aquarius. The energies of this Full Moon will unfold over the week ahead as well as the next six months. We will have peak experiences with our ambitions, career, and personal story.

Saturday, July 24th: Moon in Aquarius on a Saturday is great for saturnian Magick, i.e. discipline, structure and focus. Moon makes a powerful conjunction with Saturn, adding intensity to the day, and Mercury trines Neptune, igniting our imaginations, and bringing intuitiveness to communications.

Sunday, July 25th: Moon in Aquarius goes void at 4:14pm Pacific, then into Pisces at 8:30pm. Follow predetermined plans, but have fun today! Mercury comes around and opposes Pluto, which can clear the air with meaningful conversations. Avoid power struggles.
