Week of October 3rd: Full Moon in Aries

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 10 Libra
Mercury DIRECT at 24 Virgo (good, exalted)
Venus at 4 Libra (good, rulership)
Mars at 20 Gemini
Jupiter RETROGRADE at 2 Aries
Saturn RETROGRADE at 18 Aquarius (rulership)
Uranus RETROGRADE at 18 Taurus
Neptune RETROGRADE 23 Pisces (rulership)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 26 Capricorn
North Node at 13 Taurus

We are building up to the Full Moon at 17 Aries on Sunday. This week starts off quietly, but things will build up to the Full Moon. Also, Mercury went Direct today! Give it a week or two until the planet picks up strong forward motion. Mercury is still in a trine with Mars, and now that the Sun and Venus have moved into Libra, there’s a lot of “Airy” energy flying around. Good time to clear the air with important people, or negotiate new agreements.

Saturn is now squaring Uranus, which could bring up issues (and resolutions) from 2021. This is the LAST of several squares between these two planetary heavyweights. This square has exacerbated the battle between traditional and progressive elements in our country, so watch for more developments coming this month.

Wednesday, October 5th: Moon in Aquarius goes void-of-course at 3:46pm Pacific. The Moon also trines Mars in Gemini, giving us an energetic, sociable boost. Also a conjunction with Saturn, which can lead to a heavy, pessimistic mood. It will pass. Wherever Aquarius falls in your chart is your personal future, so there might be glimpses of it today.

Week of September 5th: Full Moon in Pisces

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 13 Virgo
Mercury STATIONING at 7 Libra
Venus at 0 Virgo
Mars at 8 Gemini
Jupiter RETROGRADE at 6 Aries
Saturn RETROGRADE at 20 Aquarius (rulership)
Uranus RETROGRADE at 18 Taurus
Neptune RETROGRADE 24 Pisces (rulership)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 26 Capricorn
North Node at 15 Taurus

We are building up to the Full Moon at 17 Pisces on Saturday. This week is calmer then things have been, but the Full Moon will still have some intensity for us. Also, Mercury goes retrograde this Friday, September 9th, which means the winged messenger is “stationing” or standing still all week – AND trining Mars at the same time. Misunderstandings or odd conversations can happen. Mercury retrograde is for going back over things you’ve done and examining their accessibility or completion. There will be six planets in retrograde for September, so we are looking back on this year, our lives, and our progress.

Sunday, Venus left passionate, fiery Leo for the earthy, manicured lands of Virgo. Venus in Virgo is more grounded, and relates to the Queen of Pentacles in the Tarot. She’s also The Hermit: an experienced, middle-aged Priestess who has deep wisdom about life. This Venus is practical and has no trouble assessing relationships in a neutral way to see if they are working. She can be a little too critical and oriented towards perfection. With relationships and the creation of art, let yourself be meticulous, discriminating and oriented towards the journey rather than the destination. Virgo is an earth sign, so eating well, being courteous, and keeping a clean house can lead to progress,

Mars in Gemini wants to LEARN. We are driven towards information, socializing, and learning. Its curiosity, networking, designing, commerce, business, and negotiations. There’s a lot of opportunity here – and it’s a good time to get a lot done on many different levels. We can engineer and perfect things, share our thoughts with other people and plan things out.

Friday, September 9th: Moon in Pisces all day opposes Venus in Virgo, which can be tough for date night. Women could be more critical or fussy. If you’re going out tonight, make a solid plan and stick to it. Moon in Pisces is great for movies and entertainment. An opposition means you have to put some work into progressing. Also today, Mercury goes retrograde at 8:38pm Pacific, and will continue moving backwards until Oct 1st. This is not a reason to freak out. Just drive cautiously, and try not to buy any big ticket items until October. If you must work towards something, start small with easily attainable goals. Allow time to reflect on your life.

Week of August 22nd: New Moon in Virgo

John Dee Performing an Experiment before Elizabeth I, Henry Gillard Glindoni (1852-1913),

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 0 Virgo
Mercury DIRECT at 24 Virgo (exalted)
Venus at 11 Leo
Mars at 0 Gemini
Jupiter RETROGRADE at 7 Aries
Saturn RETROGRADE at 21 Aquarius (rulership)
Uranus at STATIONING 18 Taurus
Neptune RETROGRADE 24 Pisces (rulership)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 26 Capricorn
North Node at 17 Taurus

The Sun moved into Virgo on Monday, heralding the beginning of harvest season! The transition from Leo to Virgo is profound. With the Sun in Leo, we reveled in our true identity, and practiced new ways of expressing it to the world; now with Virgo we organize our lives and get to work.

Moon wise, we are in the last quarter of the Moon’s cycle, preparing for the New Moon in Virgo this Saturday the 27th. The week ahead is about wrapping things up, resolving issues, paying debts, and reflecting on our lives.

Mars entered Gemini on Saturday for the next seven months! That’s March 2023! In Gemini, Mars lets go of his armor and becomes a social butterfly, focusing on communication, solving puzzles and battles of strategy. People with anxiety might need extra support during this time, because Mars adds electricity to our nervous system. A good place to focus your attention for the next seven months is on freedom and liberation. Where do you need to set yourself free? Let yourself off the hook? Have some FUN and adventures? This transit is spectacular for studying a new subject, or applying your mind to solve any type of challenge.

Thursday, August 25th: Moon in Leo, and Mercury moves into Libra, the great balancer. Relationships of all kinds will be blessed this month with real understanding and progress between people. Mercury in Libra makes us aware of all sides of a situation, especially the viewpoints of others. The key is balance. Also today, we are in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle, preparing for rebirth this Saturday with the New Moon in Virgo. Lots of old feelings and issues could be coming up so we can release them.

Week of August 8th: Full Moon in Aquarius

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 15 Leo
Mercury DIRECT at 4 Virgo
Venus at 24 Cancer
Mars at 22 Taurus
Jupiter RETROGRADE at 8 Aries
Saturn RETROGRADE at 22 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune RETROGRADE 25 Pisces (rulership)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 26 Capricorn
North Node at 18 Taurus

We made it through the powerful Mars/Uranus/North Node conjunction last week. Now this same conjunction will be affected by the Full Moon. On Thursday, the Full Moon joins Saturn at 20 Aquarius, and squares the Mars/Uranus/Nodes conjunction. This is a really intense couple of weeks because the Universe is insisting we let go of the past, so we can move on to a new path in life. This week’s Full Moon in Aquarius dramatically activates our commitment to our new life too, because we have to face obstacles and limitations.

Along with activating a new life path, the Full Moon in Aquarius brings peak experiences to our social circle, inherent gifts, and progress. The Mars/Uranus/North Node conjunction is happening in Taurus, which gives us a new set of values. What are your priorities, and where do you really want to go?

Redefine yourself, but put yourself in alignment with the true essence of who you are.

Thursday, August 11th: Full Moon in Aquarius at 6:36pm Pacific as the Sun in Leo squares Uranus in Taurus, and Venus enters Leo! It’s a crazy day and ANYTHING can happen. Venus loves being in Leo – the sign that corresponds to the heart. Let yourself shine as bright as the Moon. With Aquarius, the call to be free is strong; expect the unexpected. Still, with the Full Moon conjunct Saturn, we need to show up for our commitments and responsibilities. There’s a lot of energy flying around today, so just try and be present and focus on what you have control over.

Climb a high peak and watch the Sun set 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, independence, genius, science, courage, revolution, will be at their highest within each of us.

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.

Perhaps it’s time to update how we view the world. Reconnect with the Soul, and update the story of your life. Sagittarius is optimistic, and wants to explore, expand, philosophize, and tell the truth.

Wednesday, June 15th: The Moon in Capricorn (Binah) helps bring a new understanding. Also, Mars conjunct Chiron is exact which energizes self healing and self assurance. Issues with men and healing could arise.

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.

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.

Week of April 25th: New Moon in Taurus

Mercury 24 Taurus
Venus at 21 Pisces (exalted)

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.

Week of October 18th: Full Moon in Aries

“The Guardian”, by Chie Yoshii.

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 24 Libra (in it’s fall, no Sun Magick now)
Mercury STATIONING DIRECT at 10 Libra
Venus at 9 Sagittarius
Mars at 20 Libra (Detriment, no Mars Magick now)
Jupiter STATIONING DIRECT at 22 Aquarius
Saturn at 6 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune RETROGRADE at 20 Pisces (rulership)
Pluto at 24 Capricorn
North Node at 2 Gemini

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.
