We begin this week with a balsamic, fallow Moon, building towards a New Moon Eclipse at 19 Gemini on Thursday. Leading up to this Moon, we have an opportunity to release things that no longer fit into our new way of being. We are in eclipse season, which occurs every six months in a specific sign. It always carries a theme, and since these eclipses are on the Gemini-Sagittarius axis this year, the theme is to let go of old ways of being in order to make way for the fresh and new. These eclipses give us a reality check, and a chance to take personal inventory. They show the neglected, shadow sides of our lives, and point us towards what needs attention.

This weekend we had a cardinal T-square which will be with us for several more days. Pluto in Capricorn opposed Mars in Cancer, and the Aries Moon squared the opposition. This aspect can raise passions and bring up discussions with loved ones about feelings, hopes and fears. If we’re stuck in power struggles with someone, it will become plainly obvious this week.

The undercurrents are the retrogrades of Saturn and Pluto, and the upcoming square of Saturn and Uranus next week. This could add to the tensions between Pluto and Mars, and highlight feelings of no progress. If you’ve been feeling lost in the face of world events, or that you’ve been backsliding, things aren’t moving fast enough, or just irrational fears, it could all be exacerbated by these retrogrades. Saturn and Pluto can bring up helplessness, karma, issues with time, sacrifice and depletion, but it’s always darkest before a new dawn, and we will be receiving a grand, new beginning this week. Sagittarius tells us to have faith.

Monday, June 7th: Moon in Taurus, and Moon conjuncts Uranus. The Moon is exalted here, and it’s also a Monday, so it’s the PERFECT day for Moon Magick. If you want to bring in more creativity or psychic attunement, today is the day for a ritual. Moon bumping into Uranus can bring out your genius as well. Taurus is the sign of sensuality, luxury, indulgence. It’s also a good day for working with animals.

Tuesday, June 8th: Moon into Gemini at 11:47am Pacific. Moon trines Pluto today, along with some lovely sextiles. The Moon is in it’s balsamic phase, preparing for the New Moon coming… Moon square Jupiter in the evening could bring some tensions between our mind and spirit.

Wednesday, June 9th: Moon in Gemini trines Saturn in the afternoon which can bring heavy conversations, based in reality. We have no problem working hard on projects that require mental effort. We are in the sphere of the New Moon in Gemini occurring tomorrow too. The Moon conjuncts the North Node today, so watch for flashes of the future.

Thursday, June 10th: New Moon Solar Eclipse in Gemini in the pre-dawn hours – 3:53am Pacific. There’s a whole slew of aspects too; planetary energies are unified in a lovely, supportive way for this New Moon. The Sun also conjuncts Mercury, which is great for writers and poets. We are drawn to sociability, sharing and TALKING.

Friday, June 11th: Moon Cancer and Mars into Leo! Yay! Mars loves being in a fire sign, and he activates the heart while in Leo. After wandering through uncertain, insecure and emotional Cancer, Mars (and men in general) will be feeling feisty and confident. Support the performing arts.

Saturday, June 12th: Moon in Cancer conjuncts Venus, giving the start of the day a loving, artistic flavor. The Moon interacts with Saturn later on though, and emotions can get heavier. This is a day of healing, rest, reflection and food. With the sensitive Cancer Moon, choose your words wisely. Also today, Venus squares Chiron in Aries, which can give creative people firey inspiration.

Sunday, June 13th: Moon into Leo runs straight into Mars, and suddenly everyone has an opinion or wants to rule the roost. Posturing aside, Venus and the Moon make several lovely aspects with Neptune, Uranus and Saturn, bringing more artistic energy to the day. Channel frustrations into art.

This week the Moon is waxing (growing bigger) each day and the Sun moves through the last degrees of Taurus, entering Gemini on Thursday, May 20th.

So many great placements right now! Jupiter has moved into Pisces! The King has entered his underwater castle – the realm of dreams, inspiration, music, and spiritual connection. The luck, wealth, optimism and philanthropy of Jupiter flows easily to us for the next month or so. In June he goes retrograde back into Aquarius for the rest of the year, then permanently into Pisces for all of 2022. For now, he is SO happy in his watery kingdom.

Mercury the messenger is now in his traditional airy home of Gemini!
Business, negotiation, communication, commerce, education are all highlighted right now. Mercury also rules the occult, so we can make progress in our studies. Mercury is lightning swift right now, so if you need some clarity, now is the time to ask him for a clear mind. A very simple spell is to put your intention on a yellow candle, and burn it on Wednesday. Watch for messages and revelations, because he is talking to each of us.

Saturn (discipline, responsibility) hangs over this week. The planet of Karma is stopped in the sky and turning retrograde next Sunday the 23rd. Things could appear less stable when Saturn is retrograde, but remember it’s an illusion. Saturn represents our stability, and brings up themes around structure, time, karma, and authority. Saturn rules Aquarius, so his retrograde here brings up battles between progressive and traditional elements. Aquarius represents our need to evolve on both a collective and personal level. Focus on solidifying the foundations of your life, and then reassess your social life. It’s the perfect time to question our way of living and working.

Monday, May 17th: Moon in Leo, and the Sun trines Pluto. This is a great way to start the week. We are feeling creative, playful, and inspired. Sun trining Pluto means these two planetary heavyweights are working together for your benefit. The evolution of your soul’s growth is getting a boost this week. What direction is the Universe leading you right now? Pluto helps us progress through healing, research, regeneration, and purification. If there’s some old, toxic energy holding you back, this could be the week to release it.

Tuesday, May 18th: Moon in Leo. Venus (in Gemini) sextiles Chiron (in Aries), sending some wonderful vibes towards healing our emotional and spiritual wounds. Women in particular can bring some information and healing you might need to move past inner obstacles. There’s several planets near 11 degrees right now, which means anything in your chart around 11 degrees is getting activated this week. Contact me if you’d like more info at LizRose93@gmail.com.

Wednesday, May 19th: Moon in Leo, then into Virgo at 1:59pm. Venus trines Saturn. When the Moon is in Virgo, it’s time to get organized and get your ducks in a row. Clear the clutter. Venus trines Saturn today, bringing together the two big influences this week. Love, art and tact combine with hard work, concentration and authority. Make an effort to speak nicely and take other people’s interests into account. Venus responds well to politeness. Creative people want to work hard, and lovers want to commit. Follow the advice of women.

Thursday, May 20th: Moon in Virgo, and Sun into Gemini at 12:37pm Pacific. Yay Gemini! The building influence over the virus means some of us can safely socialize more. Gemini season is the month to talk, write, play, socialize and travel. If you have studies or writing to do, now is the time!

Friday, May 21st: Moon in Virgo, and into Libra at 6:35pm. Moon in Libra is the PERFECT time for going out and mixing with like-minded people. It’s a great date night. Sun squares Jupiter today, which can bring the resolution of tensions between our soul’s purpose and our spiritual connection. There’s some work to do to achieve balance. You need to turn a corner. With Jupiter, you generally need to avoid escapism as a way to solve problems. Watch out for spending too much, overeating, or over-confidence. Focus on people and situations that inspire you.

Saturday, May 22nd: Moon in Libra. Mercury squares Neptune in the evening. The focus on balance continues, but tension between Mercury and Neptune can make our minds foggy. This square between our minds and the psychic realm can bring confusion, and an inability to sort out the truth. Just wait until things become more clear. Try not to create stories in your head about your relationships, instead rely on facts. Our imaginations are very active today, so it’s important to avoid speculation and rumination.

Sunday, May 23rd: Moon in Libra, into Scorpio at 8pm Pacific, and Saturn stations retrograde in the middle of night. If a boundary needs to be set, today is the day. Scorpio moon is where we start drawing boundaries to emotionally protect ourselves. Moon in Scorpio squares the outer planets in Aquarius AND opposes Uranus today.

Week of May 10th: New Moon in Taurus

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 20 Taurus
Mercury at 8 Gemini (Mercury in rulership finally!! Do Magick)
Venus at 2 Gemini
Mars at 10 Cancer (Mars in detriment, no Mars Magick)
Jupiter at 29 Aquarius
Saturn at 13 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune at 22 Pisces (rulership, strong)
Pluto at 26 Capricorn
North Node at 11 Gemini

We begin this week in the sphere of the New Moon occurring Tuesday. Black Moon Lilith, the Sun, and the Moon, will all join together at 22 Taurus, bringing some witchiness to this new cycle. Black Moon Lilith is our independent streak, our demand for equality, our witchy nature, and our ability to stand alone – especially for justice. This energy blends with Taurus and our need to acquire our own resources. The urge to create and maintain a solid foundation in our lives is strong. We need to be self sufficient, so we can stand up for personal justice and advocate for ourselves. Remember that with Taurus, beauty and nature heal the soul.

Venus and Jupiter are squaring each other now, and it will continue this week. Then on Thursday (gasp) Jupiter enters PISCES!!! Yay!! This is such an excellent transit, since Jupiter LOVES being in Pisces. Pisces Sun and/or Rising people are about to have a fantastic two years. Jupiter will expand our spiritual connections, intuitiveness, artistry, creativity, and musical inclinations. On the negative side, it can also increase our desire for alcohol, drugs, shopping, TV, sugar and sex. With Jupiter these things can turn into addictions and escapism very easily, so stay moderate.

The main thing to keep in mind, is that we are in Spring. We are flowering, just as the plants around us. What is your unique offering, your unique gift, that you can share with your community? Now is the time to identify it and nurture it, as it comes into manifestation around the Summer Solstice, June 20th. We each say “I am who I am”, and come in to full self love and acceptance. This is represented by Chiron (the Wounded Healer) moving through Aries for four more years. We just ARE who we ARE, and we don’t need to edit ourselves for anyone.

Monday, May 10th: Moon in Taurus, and Moon conjuncts Uranus. Wherever Taurus falls in your chart is going to be very active today and this week. If you want a short reading on how this will effect you, go ahead and book one with me. Watch for stubborness; instead slow down like the Taurus bull and take it a step at a time. Practice patience.

Tuesday, May 11th: New Moon in Taurus at exactly noon on the West Coast. The Moon is exalted here, so we’re feeling more grounded then usual, and can make progress in relationships. Go for a walk outside and smell some roses. Taurus is the sign of sensuality, luxury, indulgence, and places where you feel at home. Indulge in feeling comfortable. Mars sextiles Uranus, which can clear the air in stagnant situations. Be careful though, people will be stubborn.

Wednesday, May 12th: Moon in Gemini meets up with Venus, the planet of Love. If you have any unresolved discussions, today is the day to clear things up. Also, Mercury trines Saturn over in Aquarius, allowing us to think clearly and discipline our minds. Writers and poets will find great inspiration with this aspect for the next several days. We have no problem working hard on projects that require mental effort.

Thursday, May 13th: Moon in Gemini, and Sun sextiles Jupiter. We are drawn to sociability, sharing and TALKING, and the Sun and Jupiter keep our focus on the big picture. The air is alive with optimism and success. And then, Jupiter enters Pisces at 3:36pm Pacific! All around great vibe today, and Magick for wealth, justice and joy is successful. Burn a blue candle.

Friday, May 14th: Moon VOC in Gemini ALL DAY, then into Cancer at 6:30pm Pacific. When the Moon is void-of-course, avoid risks or goiing outside the norm. Just focus on what’s in front of you and plans that are already agreed upon. With a Gemini void Moon, it’s a great time to practice creativity in writing or speaking.

Saturday, May 15th: Moon in Cancer and Mars semi-sextile Saturn. Perfect for working around the home, getting organized, or taking on some hard work. With the sensitive Cancer Moon, choose your words wisely.

Sunday, May 16th: Moon in Cancer. Home projects continue. Moon trine Neptune in the evening brings a desire to escape into movies, video games, OR a good book.

Sun at 0 Taurus

It’s a week of sensory delights! The Sun enters Taurus on Monday 4/19, at 1:33pm Pacific. This is the sign of wealth, nature, sexuality, luxury, accumulation, and food. Happy early birthday to all the Taureans out there. This week, the Moon is in her 2nd quarter, and we are building to a Full Moon in Scorpio next Monday, April 26th. This Moon will represent the culmination of what’s been building up in April.

When the Sun moves from Aries to Taurus, we shift from our motivations and ambitions to our values and worth. Venus just entered Taurus last Wednesday! She’s only there once every 18 months, so Taurus people will have lovely, harmonious birthdays this year. Since Venus rules Taurus and Libra, these signs are starting a new cycle though the zodiac. Anyone born in those signs will experience an even stronger rebirth then the rest of us.

Pluto in Capricorn is slowing down this week, and will be stationing retrograde next Tuesday the 27th – right after the Full Moon in Scorpio which is ruled by Pluto and Mars. Expect evolution. You must evolve in whatever sector Capricorn represents in your chart.Venu

Monday, April 19th: The Moon in Cancer, occurring on a Monday, is VERY fortuitous for Moon Magick. If you want to increase your intutiveness or self care, today is the day. Also great for improving relationships with women, your Mom or roommates. Burn a blue candle for peace. The Sun and Mercury also enter Taurus today, which enhances the loving, indulgent, emotionally open vibe.

Tuesday, April 20th: Moon in Leo has four squares today with the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus in turn. Tensions bring up self esteem challenges. Taurus and Leo both deal with personal worth and values, so if you feel confused about these issues, give it some time. You don’t have to decide everything today.

Wednesday, April 21st: Moon in Leo. Stand out and be seen! Great day to negotiate with authority figures. Now that we’re past the squares of yesterday, we can feel optimistic, and access the playful and creative side of the Leo Moon. Connecting self love and self esteem today.

Thursday, April 22nd: Moon in Virgo. Earth Day. Venus conjuncts Uranus at 6pm Pacific, which could lead to a wild, impulsive evening with our friends or lovers. Self worth is still present in our consciousness, so increase your awareness of revelations conderning your identity. Our minds are active and spontaneous with Mercury (Virgo’s ruler) in Aries.

Friday, April 23rd: Moon in Virgo and Mars into Cancer, where is he is miserable. Men could act sensitive and out of sorts over the next few weeks. Avoid pettiness, pickiness and over analysis.

Saturday, April 24th: Mercury conjuncts Uranus in the middle of the night, then Moon into Libra around 9am Pacific. We are in the orb of the Full Moon so things could start getting intense or extreme, Meditation is a great way to focus the mind and manage any anxiety around this moon.

Sunday, April 25th: Moon in Libra, but we are feeling the Full Moon in Scorpio tomorrow. On top of that, we have SEVEN aspects today, including Venus and Mercury each squaring Saturn. Tensions with lovers and friends so tread carefully. I would avoid any heavy conversations over the next several days, and focus on deep connection instead.

We begin this week with today’s New Moon at 22 Aries! We are reanimating ourselves, and hitting the reset button on our ambitions. It’s an exciting time, because each of us is seeing new options in our lives. If there is something you want to grow this year, “plant the seed” and start it NOW! We are rebirthed when the Sun is in Aries, and this week in particular, we will see some solutions to all of the problems we encountered last year. This week the Moon is waxing (growing bigger) each day and the Sun moves through the last degrees of Aries, entering Taurus next Monday, April 19th.

Also this coming week, Venus, the Sun and Mercury each square Pluto. There is an old structure in your life that is about to change or evolve; something you thought would NEVER change. Maybe it’s your job, or city, or attitude about life… it is shifting and you can feel it change this week. Venus (Love and trust) squared Pluto (evolution) today, evolving our vulnerability with other people. Maybe we have better internal boundaries, or are taking better care of our hearts.

NOTE: Pluto is currently at 26 Capricorn, but the “Pluto return” for the United States is 27 Capricorn. This means Pluto is ONE DEGREE from the exact Pluto return of the U.S. What this means is all of the twisted, toxic energy in the US is coming up to be purged – racism, political power struggles, white supremacy, sexism, faschism, wealth disparity, guns… it’s all coming to be RELEASED and healed in the next few years. The US’s exact Pluto return is next February, 2022.

Monday, April 12th: Moon into Taurus, and Ramadan begins. The week after a New Moon gives us fresh energy, and a feeling of rebirth. Watch for stubborness; instead slow down like the Taurus bull and take it a step at a time. Practice patience.

Tuesday, April 13th: Moon in Taurus. The Moon is exalted here, so we’re feeling grounded and emotionally centered today. We might be drawn to indulgence of the senses too, which is a great use of this energy. Sun sextiles Mars, which syncs up the Ego and the Drive in each of us. This is an invigorating aspect that can bring up our irritations, so stay away from arguments.

Wednesday, April 14th: Moon in Taurus, AND Venus into Taurus! Venus is the planet of Love, and in Taurus she enters her rulership. This makes the next few weeks a powerful time for self expression, love, art, nature, women and relationships. Slow way down and savor all sensations. Spend time with your lover, or go out and get one.

Thursday, April 15th: Moon in Gemini, and Sun sextiles Jupiter. We are drawn to sociability, sharing and TALKING, and the Sun and Jupiter keep our focus on the big picture. The air is alive with optimism and success.

Friday, April 16th: Moon in Gemini, and Sun squares Pluto. This aspect can take off our mask, OR bring someone else’s secret to light. There’s an element of seriousness to today’s activities. Pay attention. It’s an evolution of the Soul today, and we find there are certain directions we can’t move towards, no matter how comfortable and familiar the path.

Saturday, April 17th: Moon in Gemini, into Cancer at 1:25pm Pacific. There is a TON of aspects today – ten to be exact. There will be a LOT of energy flying around, so go slow and let things unfold. Real clarity on today’s issues won’t come for a couple of days. Mercury square Pluto is one of the bigger aspects which can bring cathartic conversations and a real clearing of the air. With the sensitive Cancer Moon, choose your words wisely.

Sunday, April 18th: Moon in Cancer, and another flurry of aspects. There’s five more – including Mercury cazimi (disappearing) into the fires of the Sun. Communications might suffer from ego wars – so watch for that. Also Mars sextile Pluto which syncs up our Drive with our current Evolution.

Week of July 13th

Pluto RETROGRADE at 23 Capricorn
Neptune RETROGRADE at 20 Pisces (rulership, strong)

We’re in the dark of the Moon this week, so don’t do anything, just wrap up loose ends and rest. It’s the dark of the Moon, preparing for a New Moon in Cancer NEXT Monday. Big time feminine energy this weekend as the Moon (women) transits Aries (the warrior) and conjuncts Mars (assertiveness), Chiron (healing), Lilith (wild women) and Eris (discord). Also Black Moon Lilith will be conjunct Eris this week, AND squaring Pluto in Capricorn (patriarchy). Watch for more upheaval around women’s equality and the rights of the oppressed. This week could see some bitter truths revealed with violent repercussions.

Sunday, July 12th: Mercury IS DIRECT around 1:30 AM Pacific. Mercury is standing still (stationing) in the sky all week, so things won’t be up to speed for several days. With the dark of the Moon, and Mercury stationing Direct, use this week to wrap up loose ends, organize, and rest. Start communications and negotiations next week when Mercury has gained momentum.

Monday, July 13th: Moon in Taurus. Focus on your needs and home life. Walk in nature, work in the garden and cook something scrumptious. Beware of overspending with online shopping. Romantic day.

Tuesday, July 14th: Moon in Taurus. Work with animals and take care of your possessions. Clean out the garage lol. Not the best day to seek concessions from authorities, but a great day to work on your finances. Tax day tomorrow!

Wednesday, July 15th: Moon in Taurus. Day of continuity from yesterday’s developments. Taurus moon means to be cautious, so stay away from risks or negotiation. Stabilize what is already in motion.

Thursday, June 16th: Moon into Gemini. Chatty day, good for talking, truth-telling and online activities. Mercury Direct will enhance the lovely social vibe. Save important purchases and conversations for next week.

Friday, June 17th: Moon in Gemini, going void-of-course 2:14pm Pacific. Probably the best day for reaching an understanding with others. Good date night, but wear a mask 🙂 We are in the realm of the New Moon, so contemplate what you’d like to see happen in your life over the next several months. Romantic evening.

Saturday, June 18th: Moon in Cancer. Get yourself grounded and centered before undertaking anything. Bring some compassion into your day. People are SENSITIVE this weekend, so don’t rattle the cage.

Sunday, June 19th: Moon in Cancer continues… we are in the orb of the New Moon in Cancer tomorrow, so prepare for a rebirth or new beginning. What do you want to build up or focus on over the next month? It starts now.

Week of May 24th

“The Call” by Orphne Acheron

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 4 Gemini
Mercury at 23 Gemini (rulership! Do Mercurial Magick now)
Venus RETROGRADE at 18 Gemini (neutral)
Mars at 7 Pisces (not great)
Jupiter RETROGRADE at 27 Capricorn (fall, very weak)
Saturn RETROGRADE at 1 Aquarius (rulership)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 24 Capricorn
Neptune at 20 Pisces (rulership, strong) update your dream.
North Node at 29 Gemini

The Sun is now in Gemini (The Twins), along with most of the inner planets AND the North Node (destiny). Gemini = ADAPTABILITY. How are you adapting to our new paradigm? Try a different point of view. We are focused like a laser on this area of our charts. If you want a personal reading on how this effects you over the next month, you can book a reading with me here.

The last month has been INTENSE with the Taurus/Scorpio axis in play. Lots of folks being stubborn and territorial. The mood will be lighter through June, however Gemini brings a strong desire to socialize, and you can see it with the country opening back up. Unfortunately, the background of the skies (and our society) is still ruled by Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter in Capricorn, which spawned the pandemic. This year is a time of major transformation and rebirth in our lives and culture. Continue to practice mindfulness, and remember, behind every polarity (Gemini) there is unity and the One. We are all ONE (Neptune).

Monday, May 25th: Moon in Cancer. It’s good to be a homebody today, although you might be tired of it 🙂 Do things to nurture yourself so you have a strong foundation for the week ahead.

Tuesday, May 26th: Moon in Cancer. People can be sensitive during this time, so try and be gentle with others. We get a glimpse of the future as Mercury passes over the North Node in Gemini.

Wednesday, May 27th: Moon in Leo. Roar like a lion. Today everyone wants a attention, so give some to yourself. Excellent creative day for music or art. Seek concessions from authority.

Thursday, May 28th: Moon void of course in Leo, and Mercury into Cancer. Our focus on sociability will shift back to the security of home. No big decisions today. Just follow your heart and continue your creative projects. Do not enter into negotiations and try not to sign anything.

Friday, May 29th: Moon in Virgo. Work on the house and organize your life. I often find myself doing that when the Moon is in Virgo without knowing it! Deep cleaning.

Saturday, May 30th: Moon in Virgo. Organize more and get the chores done. Make a healthy meal. Anything requiring attention to detail is highlighted.

Week of April 20th: New Moon in Taurus

New Moon at
3 degrees Taurus ❤
This Wednesday at
7:26pm Pacific

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 0 Taurus
Mercury at 14 Aries
Venus at 13 Gemini
Mars at 14 Aquarius
Jupiter at 26 Capricorn
Saturn at 1 Aquarius
Pluto at 24 Capricorn
Neptune at 19 Pisces

The Sun moved into Taurus Sunday morning at 7:45am Pacific. This can bring a feeling of being more comfortable in our homes – especially during this Saturnian lockdown. Taurus connects us to nature; bringing grounding, family and stability. We work in our gardens, cook sumptuous meals, and find comfort in the pleasures of life. However, the Sun and Moon near Uranus (sudden change) on Wednesday will underline the massive changes currently happening on Earth.

This is a good week to slow WAY down and send some love to the planet. Uranus near the Sun turns our thoughts to the future and what we would like to create. It could also bring more news on unemployment, and crazy volatility to the stock market. Set some intentions for your house, health, family and finances.

We still have Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter traveling together through late Capricorn and early Aquarius. This will be happening all year, and it’s the astrological impetus for the pandemic. I believe the pandemic will continue throughout this year, and come back strongly in the Fall. Pluto and Saturn conjunct (Jan. 12th, 2020) is a rare event, and spawned the 1918 flu as well as the discovery of HIV. For us, this event has led to the spread of a dangerous virus, which has caused a global economic slowdown and staggering job losses (Pluto and Saturn conjunct in Capricorn – the sign of big business).

We’re about to enter a new phase of it however. There’s a heaviness to this week as Pluto grinds to a halt and stations retrograde on Saturday. Pluto rules toxic catharsis, repressed energy, evolution, purging, healing, creation, destruction, and deep truth. It moves us to regenerate into a new persona – the growth that our life path demands. When you see a change before you that can’t be denied, that you simply MUST take, that’s usually Pluto. It’s an ego death. When Pluto stations (stands still) in the skies, it’s energy is amplified – and that’s this weekend.

It’s best to take the bull by the horns and be proactive, rather than to be at the mercy of Pluto. Take a sober look at your life, where you feel powerless, and make changes as best you can with your reaction. It’s a really hard, grinding energy, but Pluto is just giving you some tough love; it wants you to be a more authentic version of yourself on a VERY deep level.

Monday, April 20th – Moon in Aries. You might want to leap forward and be spontaneous today, but it’s best to be cautious and give things some time. The Sun (Taurus) squares Saturn (in Aquarius) today causing chafing against boundaries. Incorporate responsibility, learning and patience before taking action. Do some boundaries need to be established?

Tuesday, April 21st – Moon in Aries. Sun square Saturn still in effect. We are in the deepest, darkest parts of the Moon cycle now, preparing for rebirth with the New Moon tomorrow. Try not to work too much today – instead be in solitude.

Wednesday, April 22nd – Moon in Taurus. New Moon in Taurus at 7:26pm Pacific. It’s also Earth Day! Kind of perfect. Take a walk in the park. A new 28 day cycle is beginning today so start things now. Moon square Saturn today asks us to emotionally process the boundaries we set on Monday.

Thursday, April 23rd – Moon in Taurus. New Moon energy unfolds.

Friday, April 24th – Moon in Taurus. Day of love, connection and art. Be with the ones you love either virtually or in person. Do something creative.

Saturday, April 25th – Moon in Gemini. Mercury (in Aries) squares Pluto (in Capricorn) at 9:36am. We HAVE to speak our truth today, but PLEASE be gentle about it. No anger or raised voices today, just truth and love. Pluto goes retrograde at 11:54am. There is a theme of death and rebirth this weekend. How would you like to make this pandemic a turning point in your life? How will you manifest a positive path for yourself that respects the most meaningful parts of you?

Sunday, April 26th – Sun conjunct Uranus is exact. Along with the Pluto station, this aspect brings an inescapable drive for freedom, independence and to do something different. This is a great thing, just be aware of other people’s feelings.

We are in the dark of the moon, preparing for the rebirth of a New Moon this Friday. Clean your house and get yourself organized; if you do you’ll be ahead of the curve. Virgo is the sign of organization, service, practicality, detail,  purity and the focused mind. It’s the only Earth sign ruled by Mercury. This allows Virgo to take practical steps towards achieving ideals and dreams. Virgo makes goals into a reality. Because of this unique quality, I believe Virgo is closely related to the occult and Magick.

Because Virgo is ruled by the airy planet Mercury, it brings us messages through our mind’s eye and inner voice. Mercury speaks to us through signs and omens, and from this process we are guided to the right path. You can make use of this energy right now, whether you’re a Virgo or not.

Here’s the upcoming astrological events:

Thursday 8/29: Moon void-of-course in Leo all day; into Virgo at 4:57pm Pacific. Mercury moves into Virgo which places Mercury in it’s exalted position. Wednesdays are perfect for Mercury Magick for the next several weeks.

Friday 8/30: New Moon in Virgo at 3:37am Pacific. The Sun, Moon, Mercury and Mars are traveling tightly together and trining Uranus in Taurus, which brings some unexpected circumstances to this New Moon. There’s also a need for liberation, and the desire to express one’s genius – all of this happening in our jobs, homes or health (Earth issues). Just go with the flow and honor your deep feelings.

Saturday 8/31: Moon into Libra at 4:08pm. New Moon still in effect today. Avoid being overly analytical about all the great movement happening now. Exercise your mind and avoid crankiness, since Mars is still in play in the morning. Thoughts get loftier in the evening.

Sunday, 9/01: Moon in Libra. How do we move forward in a balanced way? How do we include friends and family, work and play, into our dreams and visions for ourselves? All of us need other people for sharing, encouragement and companionship. The Sun and Mars form a conjunction in Virgo today, which happens only once every two years. We want to put action into our souls’ desires.

Aries New Moon Horoscopes

New Moon in Aries TODAY at 1:50am. Aries is the first sign and rules the head. We are starting a brand new astrological year today; courage, creative inspiration, leadership and persistence are all highlighted in April. Let the spark of your soul expand and express itself.

Several planets are in a great position until April 19th! All of us can make real progress on important projects and plans. Take steady action on your dreams. Things will be getting tense at the end of April with Jupiter and Saturn going retrograde until August, so use today to spur you to action. Also, in June there will be a BIG, tense standoff between Mars in Cancer opposing Saturn and Pluto. NOW is the time.

The horoscopes below are written from the perspective of rising signs, but there are threads of meaning if you read for your Sun sign too. If you don’t know your rising sign, or ascendant, you can plug in your birth information here to find it.

Aries rising – New Moon in Aries today! Your ruler, Mars, is traveling through Gemini right now, making you strategic in your ambitions. Your dreams are achieved through communication with your social circle, so get out and network in your community. With Mars in Gemini, your brain is super-charged with passion and drive, so express it for all to see.

Taurus rising – You have an EXCELLENT Spring ahead of you! Your ruling planet, Venus, has moved into Pisces, which is her natural home. Venus expresses herself easily though Pisces (exalted), and this makes Taurus’s life flow smoothly. In fact, every sign is feeling this enhancement in matters of relationships, art, beauty, love and socializing.
Projects or jobs started now will make  good money down the road. Most important is for Taurus to live in reality and the truth.

Gemini rising – In a word, ACTION. With Mars in your sign it’s time for you to be self-propelled and decisive – which is challenging for a Gemini. It’s no longer enough to spin around in your head about things you want to do, you need to make a plan and stick to it. If you can do this, and stay in your truth, your life will positively expand. The universe is helping you do that for the next couple of months.

Cancer Rising – You are benefitted by the North Node (good luck and destiny) in Cancer for the next year or so. Fertility, creativity and vulnerability are all qualities that each sign can aspire to this year. The New Moon in Aries today is giving you a kick start towards fully expressing yourself without limits or judgement.

Leo Rising – The New Moon in Aries, Jupiter in Sagittarius, and your ruler the Sun (exalted in Aries) are all sending you some lovely, fresh energy to get your passions rolling out to the public. You are probably feeling some sparkly energy and excitement this month. Aries is asking you to get started on the dreams you’ve been sitting on all winter.

Virgo rising – Ugh. OK well things aren’t too bad, but you’re feeling a little untethered to the Earth. Your ruler, Mercury is still slogging through Pisces (detriment). Mercury doesn’t really dig being there, it’s too dreamy and unfocused. I advise to work on embracing your visions for the future, and network your future potential with other people. Mercury will be in Aries soon (in two weeks), and you will be ready to start taking real action.

Libra rising – The New Moon in Aries is supercharging your partnership sector – which includes lovers AND biz associates. It’s a difficult time to pin them down on anything because there’s so much energy in the air, but Mars in Gemini is a good mediator. Progress can be made by having a plan and talking it out.

Scorpio rising – Your svengali-type characteristics are currently super-charged with your ruler, Mars, abiding in Gemini. You are the great mastermind behind everything in your arena. That New Moon in Aries is motivating you to take action on things near and dear to your soul. It’s all about focusing that razor-sharp mind of yours towards daily goals.

Sagittarius rising – You value truth, honor and integrity, and Jupiter in it’s natural home in Sagittarius (exalted) is inspiring you with new philosophies about your identity. You’re feeling at home and centered with the new expansion of your world that started last December. The only issue right now is that things might come TOO easily. Remember to challenge yourself with things that you want but are not firmly in your grasp. Also, try not to gain too much weight. Jupiter in Sag increases everything, even your waistline.

Capricorn rising — You are currently expunging and purifying your past with Saturn, Pluto, and the North Node traveling together in Capricorn. At least Saturn (your ruler) is giving you tremendous stability and support! Saturn in Capricorn is in it’s rulership, and it’s energies of discipline, concentration, responsibility, ambition and focus are easily accessed. There might be some big challenges you’re facing; the only way forward is to evolve. The universe is asking you to release any unhealthy motivations around power and control, and to move towards vulnerability.

Are you standing up for yourself? Who has power over you? Who do you let have power over you? Saturn and Pluto this year are also revealing what we’re still holding onto that we can’t hold onto anymore.

Aquarius rising – Mars in Gemini is sending you some wonderful, fresh energy in your Creativity sector. Aim high and take action on bringing your Aquarius visions down to the earth plane. Your Spring is about socializing and networking your creativity ideas to your peers. If you’re able to do this you will experience positive movement.

Pisces Rising – Neptune (your ruler) in Pisces has you floating like a cloud while using your intuition to gain movement. Meanwhile, Jupiter squaring Pisces is keeping you grounded by offering up new philosophies about your identity. The Aries New Moon is keeping you focused on your spiritual beliefs – this is the way to illuminate the steps you must take to stay on your path.
