On Saturday, March 20, the Sun entered Aries and we had the Spring Equinox (equal day equal night). With the Sun freshly in Aries, we begin a brand new astrological year! 2020 is officially over, and we have a new start in life. This week, the Moon is in her 2nd quarter, and we are building to a Full Moon on Sunday, March 28th. This Moon represents the culmination of what’s been building up in March.

The Full Moon in Libra is symbolized by The Scales, and usually appears around the Spring Equinox. The Sun in Aries symbolizes the “self” and individuality, and it’s opposite, Libra, represents balance, fairness, relationships, equality and justice. Libra is the sign where we have to deal with Other People, so all of our relationships and partnerships will be highlighted this week. We will all be hammering out new, balanced agreements in our partnerships.

The Sun will be in a conjunction with Venus and Chiron on this Full Moon too, healing our deepest wound. The Sun wants to advance, so with Venus and Chiron involved, we shine brighter as we undertake our soul’s purpose. Self love can be understood on a new level. Also, Mars will conjunct the North Node, giving new fuel to our future direction and plans. The Sun and Venus will move through the sky together in Aries for the next two weeks.

Venus just entered Aries on Sunday. She’s only there once every 18 months, so Aries people will have lovely, harmonious and sociable 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.

Also on Sunday, Mars trine Saturn was exact. Anything requiring discipline, physicality or structure can get a huge boost from this aspect. Go to the gym and start regular exercise this week. If you need focus to finish a languishing project, this is the week to reignite the passion. What’s the most efficient way to apply your time and energy?

Monday, March 22nd: The Moon in Cancer, occurring on a Monday, is VERY fortuitous for Moon Magick. Waxing Moon. If you want to increase your intutiveness, nurturing, self care, or improve your relationships with women, your Mom or roommates – today is the day. Blue for peace. The energy of the week begins in this sensitive, sweet and emotional place. Honor whatever feelings are coming up today and let your emotions guide you.

Tuesday, March 23rd: Moon void-of-course in Cancer most of the day, and enters Leo at 2:56pm Pacific. Step carefully around people’s feelings. The Moon between Cancer and Leo is a VERY sensitive place, and if someone’s feelings get hurt they can hold a grudge for a long time. Cancer is the sign of the home, so it’s good day to relax, declutter, and cook a special meal. People will be sensitive, so no big conversations until tomorrow.

Wednesday, March 24th: Moon in Leo. Stand out and be seen! Seek concessions from authority. We are also under the influence of Mars in exact square to Mercury, so be careful of aggresiveness and thoughtlessness in your communications. Think things through CAREFULLY before speaking your truth.

Thursday, March 25th: Moon void-of-course in Leo ALL DAY! Let your creative side out to play. The Sun and Venus conjunct in the middle of the night, bringing positive feelings and expansiveness to beauty, romance and art.

Friday, March 26th: Moon in Virgo and Sun conjunct Venus. Things will be fuzzy and undefined thanks to Mercury (Virgo’s ruler) floundering through his detriment in Pisces. Use your intuition instead. Great evening for a walk under the Full Moon with someone you love… or someone you want to get to know.

Saturday, March 27th: Moon void-of-course in Virgo at 4:48pm Pacific, and stays void all evening. Avoid pettiness, pickiness and over analysis. 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. Clean and reorganize your house!

Sunday, March 28th: Full Moon in Libra at 11:48am Pacific. Romance is in the air. We can have positive conversations and work out agreements with people. The focus is on playing fair and taking everyone’s feelings into account. Work towards win-win situations. Also Sunday, Venus conjunct Chiron is exact, which can spark a crisis that brings enormous healing. If something comes up try and focus on the brighter possibilities of what could emerge down the road.

Full Moon in Virgo

CURRENTLY:

Mercury at 12 Aquarius
Venus at 25 Aquarius
Mars at 23 Taurus
Jupiter at 14 Aquarius
Saturn at 7 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune at 19 Pisces (rulership, strong)

A Full Moon in Virgo is symbolized by a virgin. Virgo is the High Priestess with a sword. She’s a woman that stands alone because she can take care of herself. She has the wisdom to use her sword (her mind) in an accurate and efficient way that creates a practical, forward path. It’s full moon week, and we will experience the culmination of what’s been building up in February. We are also on the Sun in Pisces/Full Moon in Virgo axis, which means we are healing. Virgo heals the body and Pisces heals the soul.

However, we STILL have five planets in Aquarius! Saturn and Jupiter will be there for awhile, but Mercury and Venus are moving fast and Venus will be in Pisces this week. Saturn in Aquarius squares Uranus in Taurus all year long. This square represents a subtle, deep tension between your old patterns, and who you are becoming. The first exact one happened last week. Interesting that Aquarius rules electricity, Taurus is land and resources, and we had a huge power outage in Texas last week with people freezing in their homes. I was so sad to see this happen.

Saturn is the planet of karma, and this is a time of sowing and reaping. You might be aware that you have a fresh, new version of yourself waiting in the wings. It’s waiting to manifest, you just need to embrace it and own it, when you’re ready. Your new self will appear in the houses of your chart that are ruled by Aquarius or Taurus, and will be unfolding this year. I can feel it happening in my own life.

Monday, February 22nd: The Moon in Cancer starts the week off in a sensitive, sweet and emotional place. This moon wants to be introverted and secure, so honor whatever feelings are coming up today. Let your emotions guide you. Neptune will also move to 20 Pisces which adds to the watery, intuitive vibe. Try not to future-trip.

Tuesday, February 23rd: Moon in Cancer continues. You can’t think your way through things right now, you have to FEEL your way to find the path. Cancer is the sign of the home, so it’s good day to relax, declutter, and cook a special meal. People will be sensitive, so no big conversations until tomorrow.

Wednesday, February 24th: Moon in Leo. Stand out and be seen! Seek concessions from authority. We are in the orb of the Full Moon so things could start getting intense or extreme, especially with Mars trining Pluto today too. This aspect can fire up tempers so practice caution in unstable situations.

Thursday, February 25th: Moon in Leo and Venus enters Pisces! Venus is exalted in Pisces so it’s a great time for romance. Let your creative side out to play. Venus also rules friendships, money, women, art and relationships. All of these things get a nice boost over the next few weeks so make the most of it.

Friday, February 26th: Moon in Virgo all day, but doesn’t go full until the middle of the night. The full moon will oppose Venus newly in Pisces in the middle of the day. Things will sharpen up and become very clear, thanks to Virgo enhanced by Mercury Direct. Great evening for a walk under the Full Moon with someone you love… or someone you want to get to know.

Saturday, February 27th: Full Moon in Virgo happens in the middle of the night at 12:15am, but it’s in effect all weekend. Avoid pettiness, pickiness and over analysis. Meditation is a great way to focus the mind and manage any anxiety around this moon. Clean and reorganize your house!

Sunday, February 28th: Moon in Virgo, then into Libra at 11:17am. Friday’s date night continues… great day to have positive conversations and work out agreements with people. The focus is on playing fair and taking everyone’s feelings into account.

Week of December 21st: Winter Solstice

“Druids Cutting the Mistletoe on the Sixth Day of the Moon” by Henri Paul Motte (France, c.1900)

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 0 Capricorn
Mercury at 0 Capricorn
Venus at 5 Sagittarius
Mars at 23 Aries (Rulership)
Jupiter at 0 Aquarius
Saturn at 0 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune at 18 Pisces (rulership, strong)
Pluto at 23 Capricorn
North Node at 19 Gemini

Tonight, Sunday, December 20th, 2020 is Winter Solstice eve. It is the longest night of the year. Tomorrow morning at dawn, 7:21am Pacific, the Sun rises on the new year. This is because the days grow longer from this point on until the climax at the longest day on June 21st, 2021. Important to think about what you’d like to “grow” in the New Year. Christmas tree lights symbolize finding hope in times of darkness.

That’s the main undercurrent of what’s happening right now: REBIRTH. There’s also the Great Conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter at 0 Aquarius, which is a huge event. lt underlines this rebirth of the Sun. Saturn has been in Capricorn, it’s natural home, for the last 2.5 years, exposing materialism, lack of integrity, and the misuse of power. With Saturn’s entrance into Aquarius, our society will be completely transformed, perhaps leaning towards the promised utopia of Aquarius.

We’re already experiencing some of this shift in the form of lockdowns – Saturn limiting our social (Aquarius) connections. Also, working remotely (Saturn) online (Aquarius). 

There’s also aspects happening that are resetting us for 2021:

  1. Mercury conjunct the Sun (combust) at 0 Capricorn.
  2. Pluto at 23 Capricorn exactly square Mars (which is conjunct Eris at 23 Aries).
  3. Week starts with the Moon at 23 Pisces.
  4. The Saturn/Jupiter conjunction enters a square to Uranus in Taurus, and it will be in effect through 2022. 

These squares between these specific planets can bring fighting and conflict, so be cautious in the world.

Monday, December 21st: Moon void in Pisces, into Aries at 2:32pm Pacific. WINTER SOLSTICE. Sun enters Capricorn at 2am Pacific. This morning’s sunrise sees the rebirth of the Sun. This is one of the most magical days of the year. Immerse yourself in the wonderful, fresh energies alive in the air today. The Sky King (Jupiter) spreads his wings (Aquarius) and escapes the Earth (Capricorn). All of the cooped-up, earthbound energy of the last two years is shaken off, and we have a new path before us of freedom.

Tuesday, December 22nd: Moon in Aries adds to the feeling of rebirth! Put plans into action, but be aware people won’t be all that patient, or listen well. Drive cautiously.

Wednesday, December 23rd: Moon in Aries, but void-of-course at 2:51pm Pacific. Try to avoid signing anything or having important conversations during a void Moon. This is a volatile day, since the Moon conjuncts Mars and Black Moon Lilith, and Mars square Pluto is exact. Tests might come up around your identity. The best use of this energy is setting boundaries where needed, but watch out for irritation and anger. Today begins the final squares of Mars/Eris to Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter. Tempers will be testy through February 2021. Be cautious driving.

Thursday, December 24th: Christmas Eve. Moon in Taurus. Things slow waaaay down today and we indulge in sensual delights. Although you may be stuck at home and away from your families this year, get yourself an excellent dinner. Taurus loves food.

Friday, December 25th: Christmas Day. Moon in Taurus. Slow, quiet day. Any activity that awakens the five senses is highlighted. Get outside today and appreciate nature.

Saturday, December 26th: Moon void-of-course at the end of Taurus all day, and then into Gemini at 3:33pm Pacific. Energy picks up as the Moon trines the lovely Saturn/Jupiter conjunction in Aquarius, so expect some communication or insight into your future path.

Sunday, December 27th: Moon in Gemini. Very chatty day full of socializing and online purchases. We are two days from a Full Moon in Cancer, so walk cautiously around people’s feelings.

The Sun has finished it’s travels through Scorpio, and we’ve officially entered the sign of Sagittarius, the Archer. For the next month, we will be reassessing our Truth, and aligning ourselves with new meaning and purpose. The Archer chooses a goal, and focuses her energy there before releasing her arrow. Now is the time to examine our goals, and prioritize what is most important to us.

We’ve been through SO much transformation this year, and most of us are feeling exhausted… but we aren’t out of the woods yet. Jupiter and Pluto joined together a couple of weeks ago, and now Jupiter is on it’s way to catch up with Saturn at the end of December. Once that last conjunction happens, and these planets begin to move into Aquarius, things will start to turn a corner.

This week is manageable, but also a gradual build up to our fifth eclipse of the year, a lunar eclipse next Monday, November 30th in Gemini. During an eclipse, hidden issues arise and come to light to be handled – and since it’s a Full Moon – the issues are emotional in nature.

Also, the planet Neptune is at a stop all week, about to turn Direct this Saturday in Pisces. This will heighten our intuition, but also contribute to brain fog, fatigue, and feelings of being lost. If you feel these things just relax into it and stay in the present moment. Neptune is great for creativity and spiritual pursuits, so put your energy there.

Monday, November 23rd: Moon in Pisces. Moon in a water sign makes this an emotional and spiritual start to the week. Pisces makes things fuzzy and undefined… not the best day for negotiation. Mercury trine Neptune at 8:40pm Pacific encourages healing through inspiration, imagination and spiritual strength.

Tuesday, November 24th: Moon in Aries chases Mars, and also trines the Sun newly in Sagittarius. It’s a wonderful, fiery day, so be careful about emotional outbursts or headstrong behavior. It’s a creative day full of ideas!

Wednesday, November 25th: Moon in Aries, and conjuncts Mars and Black Moon Lilith. Tests might come up around your identity. The best use of this energy is setting boundaries where needed.

Thursday, November 26th: THANKSGIVING! Moon void-of-course in Aries at 3:45pm Pacific, then slows waaaay down as it enters Taurus at 7:43pm. Even though many of us will be away from our families this year, it will still be a day of feasting, overindulgence and sensory delights. Live it up!

Friday, November 27th: Moon in Taurus. We are in the realm of the Full Moon eclipse on Monday, November 30th, so things could be getting intense. Any activity that awakens the five senses is highlighted. Get outside today and appreciate nature. Very passionate date night.

Saturday, November 28th: Moon at the end of Taurus and Neptune stationing Direct. Love, beauty, passion, commitment, nature, animals, and the Divine Feminine are the energies to focus on this weekend. Look back to June 23rd, when Neptune went retrograde, to see what themes have arisen for you from this transit. When Neptune is stationary there’s two paths we can take: the first is inspiration, clear dreams, heightened intuition, and mystical revelations. The other path is escapism, leading to illusions, hyper-sensitivity, drama, and over indulgence in substances. Try not to overindulge in alcohol, drugs, sugar, shopping, etc.

Sunday, November 29th: Moon in Gemini. Very chatty day full of socializing and online purchases. The Full Moon Eclipse is tomorrow, so no big decisions today.

There are HUGE planetary events this week, but we are in the dark of the Moon, so just take it easy and rest. The Moon is waning until this Saturday evening, November 14th, when we have a New Moon in Scorpio.

Currently, Mars is at a dead stop in the sky, and will turn Direct (move forwards) on Friday – just in time for the New Moon in Scorpio on Saturday night. This is not the week to take action, it is a week of reflection, blending with the already quiet nature of the dark moon. We reassess our ambitions while Mars is retrograde, and revaluate our life path and direction. Next week we can move forward in a fresh alignment with the life and world we want to create. Here are some questions to ask yourself this week with regards to the Mars station:

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

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

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

The Mars station is a big deal, and it could bring a rise in tension this week, but there’s something even BIGGER happening! The REAL news, is Jupiter and Pluto meeting together at the same degree that started the pandemic in January. These two heavyweights will form a conjunction on Saturday at 22 Capricorn – the same degree as the Saturn/Pluto conjunction on January 12th which spawned the pandemic. This means it will feel like we are returning to the beginning of the story, but with all of the insight we’ve had this year. Jupiter expands and Pluto brings the disease, so prepare for a huge spike in cases. We will also see huge shifts in world power, since Capricorn rules the establishment. Perhaps another market crash…

This is the third and final Jupiter – Pluto conjunction in this cycle. It’s very strong and will be with this us throughout November. The first two conjunctions happened on April 5th and June 30th, so look back to these dates to see what themes you might be revisiting. What problems remain unsolved? What have you learned since those conjunctions? Has your definition of success changed? Have you found a sound basis for optimism?

While Jupiter can indicate success, joy, justice, expansion, religious understanding, and such positive qualities as generosity, optimism and hospitality, in essence Jupiter amplifies. Here Jupiter amplifies Pluto, Pluto is not only about destruction, it can indicate deep healing, tranquility, social and spiritual reform and transformation, necessary repairs, and rebirth collective and personal. How do we get the best from Pluto? Do the research. Make changes conscientiously. Include the greater good in your definition of success. Let go of bad habits and cultivate good ones. Force is not the right approach. Silent contemplation can help you find the right timing and the right place. Above all, take this opportunity to learn about yourself, about your goals, and about society. Know when to turn off the news. Enjoy the tranquil beauty of nature. Find pride in survival, and allow the humbling that society has suffered to bring you a deeper appreciation for who and what you cherish.

Monday, November 9th: Moon in Virgo. This is great energy to start off the week. Get organized, tie up loose ends and make a plan for what you’d like to accomplish. Mercury (Virgo’s ruler) is in the last degrees of Libra about to move into Scorpio tomorrow, so notice insights regarding relationships.

Tuesday, November 10th: Moon in Virgo, and Mercury reenters Scorpio at 0 degrees. Ground through nurturing your needs and organizing your home life. Good day for releasing, purging and breaking bad habits. With Mars stationing, watch out for crazy drivers; avoid social awkwardness.

Wednesday, November 11th: Moon in Libra. Normally a very sociable time, but take some time for yourself today, and bring your life into balance.

Thursday, November 12th: Moon in Libra, and Jupiter exactly conjunct Pluto at 22 Capricorn. Identify areas in your life that require reform and repair. Let go of habits and beliefs from the past that create unnecessary suffering. Meditate.

Friday, November 13th: Moon in Scorpio and Mars Direct at 15 Aries. Plans could change, best to go with the flow. If you need to have meetings or work through agreements, do it in the morning. Remember to focus on balance and win-win resolutions. Excellent date night.

Saturday, November 14th: New Moon in Scorpio at 9:07pm. Do Magick! Expect occult experiences and deep conversations with people. With Mars still retrograde, reflect on passions and think about what corner of your life needs action.

Sunday, November 15th: New Moon in Scorpio continues.

Week of October 26th: Halloween

“Death” tarot card by Salvador Dali

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 4 Scorpio
Mercury RETROGRADE at 2 Scorpio
Venus at 28 Virgo
Mars RETROGRADE at 16 Aries (Rulership)
Jupiter at 20 Capricorn (fall, very weak)
Saturn at 25 Capricorn (rulership)
Neptune RETROGRADE at 18 Pisces (rulership)
Pluto at 22 Capricorn
North Node at 22 Gemini

Crossroads. This is the week leading up to Halloween; a primal festival with ancient roots. You can feel it in your bones. It is the last harvest festival of the year, the witches new year, and the last night before the fairies go underground for the winter. The boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead is at it’s thinnest point for the next several weeks.

Halloween is one of the year’s four cross-quarter holidays, and marks the midway point between the autumnal equinox and the winter solstice. However, True Halloween occurs when the Sun reaches 15 degrees Scorpio, which is usually around November 7th. The Sun went into Scorpio last week, and we are officially in the season of death and rebirth.

Last week we released an old relationship pattern that no longer worked for us, and this week we begin a deep dive into exploring our passions, healing psychological wounds and uncovering hidden agendas. Sun in Scorpio represents honesty and passion, and wherever it appears in your chart is where you walk fearlessly through the shadows to find passion and treasure.

Monday, October 26th: Moon in Pisces. Sun and Moon in water signs makes this an emotional and spiritual start to the week. Take a break if you have to, so you can find your true feeling about a situation, and then express this honestly in your communications. Moon in Pisces allows for self forgiveness, abstract thoughts and creativity.

Tuesday, October 27th: Moon in Pisces, Mercury and Venus BOTH enter Libra! Yay! It’s rare for two planets to enter a sign at the same time – and from opposite ends. Mercury backs out of Scorpio and lands on the last degree of Libra, rehashing situations from the last week of September. Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) get some pleasant avenues opening up as Venus arrives at 0 Libra.

Wednesday, October 28th: Moon in Aries. Watch out for head strong behavior or taking on more than you can handle. The best use of this energy is handling situations that take courage and strength, and setting boundaries.

Thursday, October 29th: Moon in Aries conjuncts Mars and Black Moon Lilith. Tests might come up around your identity and who you are becoming. Best to go slow and stay present with yourself so you can respond properly in the moment. Each of us has a new way of being, and a new life, but with Mars still retrograde, it’s not the time to push forward yet.

Friday, October 30th: All Hallows Eve. Moon VOC, then entering Taurus at 2:19pm Pacific. We are in the realm of Halloween and the orb of the Full Moon. Any activity that awakens the five senses is highlighted. It’s a sensual full moon near Black Moon Lilith, so equality and respect are demanded. Very passionate night.

Saturday, October 31st: Halloween. Full (Blue) Moon at 8 Taurus at 7:49am Pacific. Love, beauty, passion, commitment, nature, animals, and the Divine Feminine are the energies to focus on this weekend. Try and avoid power struggles, control issues and obsession. Pushiness and bullying will get you nowhere. Listen to others, respect their wishes and look to the common good. Taurus wants us all to be healthy and secure, so trick or treating will be on hold this year.

Sunday, November 1st: Witches New Year. Sun in Scorpio/Moon in Taurus. The phoenix rises from the ashes. Day to take stock, rest, and decide where to focus your energies for the coming Winter.

Week of October 12th

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

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

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

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

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

Mars retrograde, over in Aries, is still leading us through the underworld until November 13th. Our energy is directed inward, and we look at ourselves rather than taking action on people or situations around us. We reassess our ambitions while Mars is retrograde, and revaluate our life path and direction. It is a time to think about our actions, and whether they are aligned with the life and world we want to create.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Week of September 28th

Valentine Cameron Prinsep – At the First Touch of Winter, Summer Fades Away, 1897

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 6 Libra
Mercury at 1 Scorpio
Venus at 25 Leo
Mars RETROGRADE at 25 Aries (Rulership)
Jupiter DIRECT at 17 Capricorn (fall, very weak)
Saturn STATIONING at 25 Capricorn (rulership)
Neptune RETROGRADE at 19 Pisces (rulership, strong)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 22 Capricorn
North Node at 23 Gemini

Can you feel the weight of Saturn? It is the planet of reality, discipline, responsibility, karma, and time, and it is currently standing still in the skies over the East Coast of the United States. Saturn in Capricorn is stationing (standing still), and turned Direct on Monday (9/28). We will feel the weight of this all week. If you have any planets around 25 degrees in any cardinal sign, you will be STRONGLY effected by the energy of this event.

On top of that, Saturn (patriarchy) is in a tight square with an aggressive group of planets near 25 Aries – Eris (discord), Mars (courage and assertiveness) and Lilith (rebellion). Female empowerment is greatly enhanced from this configuration. This square will bring up issues around leadership and control, and could bring violence this week.

Far eastern beliefs and practices state that we are surrounded by impermanence; that the only thing that is truly ours is the beauty of the present moment. Everyone and everything we know will eventually turn into something else. This the way of the world and the archetype of the Fall season. Our planet, society and personal lives are in a state of huge transition, and the best we can do is approach our challenges with love. Appreciate the people around you and the blessings you have in your life.

Monday, September 28th: Moon in Pisces. Mercury also entered Scorpio yesterday, bringing great depth and honesty to communications. Our minds are refocused and our powers of concentration are heightened. Moon in Pisces trines Mercury today, allowing us to express abstract thoughts in a clear way. With Saturn stationing Direct tonight, practice mindfulness and discipline.

Tuesday, September 29th: Moon in Pisces, Saturn stations Direct in Capricorn. Any Earth sign folks should be feeling a new sense of security today, but any Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra) could get a reality check on their grand designs. With the Moon in Pisces, meditate and contemplate your life. Music and spirituality soothe the soul and ignite our imaginations. Great night to play or listen to music and make art.

Wednesday, September 30th: Moon VOC in Pisces. No big decisions or important conversations with authority. I would avoid that until next week if possible. Follow your intuition, go with the flow, and make time for solitude.

Thursday, October 1st: Full Moon in Aries. Watch for messages from the Universe about your identity, and your experience of evolutionary shifts. Each of us is changing and evolving into new, upgraded version. Each of us has a new way of being, and a new life. Focus your ambition and drive towards things you want to accomplish.

Friday, October 2nd: Moon In Aries, and Venus into Virgo. We are still feeling energetic, and good progress can be made now. Aries is the sign of individuality, so it’s all about YOU. Venus in Virgo is in it’s fall – which is one of the most difficult placements for the planet to express itself. Instead of art, put energy into organization.

Saturday, October 3rd: Moon in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn stationing. Evolution, research, reformation and healing are the energies to focus on this weekend. Venus and Pluto are in tense placement this weekend, which can bring difficulties in relationships. Try and avoid power struggles, control issues and obsession. Pushiness and bullying will get you nowhere. Listen to others, respect their wishes and look to the common good.

Sunday, October 4th: Moon in Taurus and Pluto Stationing Direct in Capricorn. The phoenix rises from the ashes. Eris, the planet of discord is in the sign of Aries, the Individual. She is in a tense square to her brother Pluto, the planet of extremes, in the sign of Capricorn, which symbolizes control and the patriarchy. Be careful if you’re out there protesting.

Week of September 21st: LIBRA

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Week of September 14th

Lady of the Lake

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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