This is not a week to take risks. The Sun is currently in the Capricorn-part of the heavens called “the Covid point”. It’s where the momentous conjunctions happened last year that heralded the pandemic. This will be an intense week with the Sun crossing Pluto, and consequently squaring Mars and Uranus. This means situations and information will arise that underline our evolution, and where to place our focus. A New Moon in Capricorn occurs this Wednesday too!

Uranus is standing still over our heads all week, preparing to go Direct in Taurus on Thursday. On top of that, Uranus will be making several trines and conjunctions with all the planets at the end of Capricorn and beginning of Aquarius. There will be many flashes of insight and messages from the Universe this week, so try to be well rested and observant. Aquarius (ruled by Uranus) is a huge part of the astrological fabric of 2021, and with the Moon, Saturn and Jupiter there, it’s a potent time for signals.

Monday, January 11th: Moon in Capricorn, and Mercury conjunct Jupiter in the early morning. This gives a great vibe to the beginning of our week. Our minds are expanded with new ideas, and conversations lead to better understanding between people. All things are possible today, so don’t hesitate to take action on anything. Clearing the air and speaking your truth should go very well.

Tuesday, January 12th: Moon in Capricorn, and Mercury squares Uranus in Taurus. We’re in the realm of the New Moon, so watch for flashes of insight. There could be sudden surprises today, so be open to quick changes – especially around work, health and home. Capricorn brings a serious, focused and ambitious mood. Ground yourself through working hard, especially on things you’ve been avoiding. Focus on the goal.

Wednesday, January 13th: New Moon in Capricorn, going into Aquarius at 8:44am. Both of these signs are ruled by Saturn, so a serious mood colors the day. Whatever you begin today will have a VERY solid start. Conversely, new projects could be hard to get off the ground. There’s a flurry of aspects today too – eight total! So pay attention to any revelations you receive from the Universe.

Thursday, January 14th: Moon void-of-course ALL DAY in Aquarius. Good to lay low and pursue plans already set in motion. Uranus direct in Taurus at 12:36am brings electricity and a strong urge for independence to the energy of the New Moon. Avoid big purchases or spontaneous actions. People will be friendly but slightly detached, so it’s a good day for communications of all kinds. Focus on what your mind tells you rather than your heart and let your creative genius out to play.

Friday, January 15th: Moon is sill void-of-course in Aquarius, and enters Pisces at 2:17pm. If you need to have meetings or work through agreements, do it in the afternoon – although defining things could be difficult. The Pisces Moon lets us slow down, and focuses us on nurturing our souls. Music, creativity and solitude are the best practices today.

Saturday, January 16th: Moon in Pisces, with harmonious sextiles to Mars, Uranus and Venus. Yesterday’s mood for solitude and communing with the divine continues. Creative genius is easily accessible.

Sunday, January 17th: Moon in Pisces conjuncts Neptune. Boundaries are hard to define and it’s easy to feel a little lost as the path forward disappears under our feet. Also, Jupiter square Uranus is exact, and Mars conjuncts Uranus tomorrow, Jan 20th. This is an especially powerful pair of squares, with potential for violence. Stay home, and swim around your intuitions, ideas and creativity. If you are near a body of water, today is good for a visit.

We are in the dark of the Moon this week, so just take it easy and rest. The Moon is waning until next Monday, December 14th, when we have a New Moon Solar eclipse at 23 Sagittarius.

Happy New Year! January is the month of the ancient Roman god Janus, who rules doorways, and looks forwards and backwards at the same time. He symbolizes transitions, and the portal between the past and the future.

This god is appropriate for all of 2021, as we begin the tussles between Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus. These squares between these two planets will manifest on Earth as the push and pull between old world ideologies, and the advancements of the technological age.

It’s very close to being mutual reception, which is when two planets are in each others’ ruling signs. Saturn (responsibility and discipline) has a lot in common with Taurus (practicality and slow growth). Uranus (revolution) is the ruler of Aquarius (liberation, revelation). This year, we will be wanting to push forward past old ideas to a new paradigm, but the progress will be slow. Patience is the key.

Last year, in 2020, our world and personal lives were torn to pieces. Pluto, the god of literal and metaphoric death, presided over last year. In 2021, we will begin to lay the foundation for a new way forward, but the key is deciding on personal direction. Neptune in Pisces is also squaring the North Node of the Moon in Gemini all year, asking us to access intuition for finding this new path. You can’t think your way into it, you have to use your gut instincts. This is very important this year.

Monday, January 4th: Moon VOC in Virgo starting in the afternoon. Try and avoid spending all of your $600 bonus today. It is EXCELLENT to start a new year diet and exercise routine though! The big news is Mercury conjunct Pluto around 5pm Pacific. Avoid power plays and doom scrolling on social media. Issues of control might come up in communication, but there’s possibilies for deep understanding and clearing of the air. Don’t go to extremes in your thinking this week; healing is available.

Tuesday, January 5th: Moon in Libra brings a need for balance, fairness and justice. If an issue in your life feels out of your control or unjust, gently take action today. Libra wants you to use tact, and maneuver towards win-win situations. Talk to your boss, or hammer out agreements, today and tomorrow.

Wednesday, January 6th: Moon in Libra enters the 4th quarter, and we are in a balsamic Moon until next Wednesday. You have permission to rest and watch movies. Mars enters Taurus at 2:27pm Pacific, which means the massive restructure of our identities from Mars in Aries last year has completed it’s first phase. Unfortunately, this could bring battles over territories.

Thursday, January 7th: Moon in Scorpio. The mood of the day could be frustrating, because the Moon will be squaring most of the outer planets, then opposing Uranus at 12:16pm Pacific. Don’t push people to meet your needs, instead nurture yourself. Stay in your own front yard.

Friday, January 8th: Moon in Scorpio, void at 6pm Pacific. Lots of aspects and changes today so go with the flow. Mercury goes into Aquarius and our minds become electrified by possibilities, ideas and expanding consciousness. Venus sullenly enters Capricorn and romance dies. We’re all about committment now, and long-lasting partnerships. Are the fundamentals there for this to really work in the long term? Expect this question to come up a lot in the next few weeks.

Saturday, January 9th: Moon in Sagittarius. Have outside adventures and put energy towards your goals! Venus trines Mars, allowing achievable resolutions between partners. You can get some foundational stuff decided in relationships today. Get it done by early evening though, because Mercury conjunct the hard eye of Saturn in the evening could bring stubborness and pessimism.

Sunday, January 10th: Moon in Sagittarius, then at 10:30am void ALL DAY!! Be creative, rest and have fun. No big aspects and no ground under our feet today, so no big decisions or conversations.

We’ve made it to the last week of 2020. Sadly, many hundreds of thousands of people did not survive the horrific pandemic we faced this year. I still can’t fully comprehend the huge losses we’ve suffered, and the deep grief felt by so many families. It’s really been a year like no other in our living history.

Thank goodness we have a quiet week with a gentle Full Moon in Cancer. This Full Moon will deliver the final information we need to integrate the changes of 2020. Look for emotional resolutions to the year. We are leaving behind 2020 with an understanding of the changes we’ve been through, and a long view of all we have learned about ourselves. We have a new, inner resolve that we will express in the coming month.

Monday, December 28th: Moon in Gemini. Mercury (Gemini’s ruler) gets bogged down in Capricorn and can’t think or move quickly with the Seagoat’s pessimism and caution. The only way to walk through Mercury here, is to think strategically, and negotiate when you’re in a good position. Last night, we had the Sun trining Uranus, which brings the desire for freedom. Look for ways you can liberate yourself today.

Tuesday, December 29th: Full Moon in Cancer at 7:28pm Pacific. Avoid difficult conversations today because sensitivities are high. Be gentle… Easy Does It. Creativity, nostalgia, food, and emotional release are good uses of this energy.

Wednesday, December 30th: Moon in Cancer. It’s an emotional week, and sensitivity and dreaminess remain at the forefront of our experience. We are integrating the big changes this year, and preparing for 2021. Still not a great day for serious discussions or social complications. Venus squares Neptune in the early morning, bringing some desire for escapism. Engage in pleasure and express yourself through art. A good week for creativity; so paint, write, film and play.

Thursday, December 31st: Moon into Leo at 11:00am Pacific. The mood changes and becomes more upbeat. We are feisty and ready to celebrate New Year’s Eve. Great evening to see first rate performances on television. With Saturn and Jupiter opposite the Moon, the pandemic is still in full force, so celebrate from home. Venus conjunct the South Node helps us let go of an old story.

Friday, January 1st: Moon in Leo. New Year’s Day! Moon opposite Pluto in the morning, then Saturn and Jupiter in the afternoon. This could bring some heaviness and fears that there won’t be real change, but the Moon in Leo encourages us to have heart. Try to be around authentic people.

Saturday, January 2nd: Moon in Leo, and goes void at 2:28pm. A day to spend with animals and/or making music. No big decisions or proclamations when the Moon is void, just go with the flow.

Sunday, January 3rd: Moon in Virgo. Now we clean up after the New Year’s/Leo Moon party and get organized. We turned a spiritual corner last week, now we want to put things in motion, in alignment with our integrity.

A powerful New Moon occurred Monday, just after sunrise on the West Coast.
The Sun (Soul), Moon (emotions), Mercury (mind) and the South Node (the past), are all exact at 23 Sagittarius, which gives us a total Solar Eclipse. This is an opportunity for a final release from the major shedding of 2020. This eclipse heralds the closing of a chapter, and the start of something new. Since it’s occurring in Sagittarius, this new path has a lot to do with our beliefs, aspirations, and the Big Picture of our lives.

It’s interesting that we’re wrapping up the year in the sign of Sagittarius, which represents our beliefs and personal truths, and we haven’t known WHAT to believe this year. Until our society reaches stability again, it’s up to us to do the work, research facts, and find the truth. This New Moon solar eclipse tomorrow morning, is occurring with the south node (the past), which represents us releasing and moving past an old story we have about ourselves and the world. Sagittarius is The Archer, so aim, pull your arrow back, and let it fly!

There’s also the momentous conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn at 0 Aquarius on Dec. 21st – the Winter Solstice! Many people are calling it the “Great Conjunction,” because it will form one huge, bright star in the sky. The truth is, it’s already happening and you can see it now, it just becomes exact on Dec. 21st. This is another aspect that puts an end to 2020 and starts us on a new path, and it’s influencing this whole month.

Monday, December 14th: Total Solar Eclipse/New Moon at 23 Sagittarius at 8:17am Pacific, THEN the moon goes void-of-course ALL DAY until 7:35pm Pacific! Eek! Avoid risk-taking, negotiation or big purchases during a void-of-course Moon. There’s going to be intensity today, but the energy is towards a rebirth. Today is a powerful new beginning for any corner of your life. Whatever is started this week will probably develop over the next six months, but the initiating spark is now. Spend some time outside to clear your mind. Excellent day to read philosophy, or spend your energy on being wildly romantic or creative 🙂

Tuesday, December 15th: Moon in Capricorn, Venus into Sagittarius and Chiron direct. The solar eclipse is still in effect, but Capricorn brings a serious, focused and ambitious mood. You can probably put plans in motion today. Ground yourself through working hard, especially on things you’ve been avoiding. Focus on the goal. Chiron direct brings fresh energy towards healing.

Wednesday, December 16th: Moon in Capricorn, and Saturn into Aquarius in the evening, which brings a new, airy energy into our lives. This ingress into Aquarius will heavily influence 2021 – for the better. Moon approaches the “Big three” in Capricorn i.e. Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn. Heaviness can result and you may not feel like doing a lot, which is fine. Do not demand anything from authority figures today because they will be resistant. Capricorn also brings certainty.

Thursday, December 17th: Moon in Aquarius. There could be some flashes of the future today, so watch for signs. Aquarius is a huge part of the astrological fabric of 2021, and with the Moon, Saturn and soon Jupiter arriving there it’s a potent time for signals. People will be friendly but slightly detached, so it’s a good day for communications of all kinds. Focus on what your mind tells you rather than your heart. Let your creative genius out to play.

Friday, December 18th: Moon in Aquarius. Sun joins the Galactic Center today, so it’s easier to communicate with the universe, and the God of your heart. If you need to have meetings or work through agreements, do it in the morning. Remember to focus on balance and win-win resolutions.

Saturday, December 19th: Moon in Pisces and Jupiter into Aquarius. This is a real, positive change for Jupiter! The planet is moving out of Capricorn and it’s detriment and becomes electrified in the sign of the Water Bearer. Expansion, philosophy, truth, justice and honor are much more available to all of us!

Sunday, December 20th: Moon in Pisces and Mercury into Capricorn. Swim around your intuitions, ideas and creativity. With Mercury in Capricorn for the next month, it’s a great time for artists and writers to get organized, study, and work hard. Enjoy the day.

We are in the dark of the Moon this week, so just take it easy and rest. The Moon is waning until next Monday, December 14th, when we have a New Moon Solar eclipse at 23 Sagittarius.

We are in between eclipses – between the lunar eclipse in Gemini on Nov. 30th, and the upcoming solar eclipse next Monday. We are in touch with our subconscious and what we need on a deep level, as well as wrestling with what we believe. Since the Moon is balsamic or waning this week, it’s a time of “wrapping things up” and endings… which includes the end of this volatile year 2020.

We’ve all been forced to reevaluate our lives this year in the face of the massive societal changes brought about by the pandemic. The world has been restructured, along with our identities. Society has been torn down, old systems have been ripped out, and we are letting go of old, toxic, moldy, dead energies. Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter have influenced this upheaval by going through various conjunctions in the sign of the “boardroom” – Capricorn. We are releasing the “traditional”, the established and the conventional for a future that (hopefully) benefits everyone.

This month, we’re coming up to the Winter Solstice and the Sun’s entrance into Capricorn on December 21st. On the same day, there’s a paradigm shift when Jupiter and Saturn have an exact conjunction at 0 Aquarius. This happens every 20 years and it’s a big deal. It’s in Aquarius too – which sets our path on a lighter, airier trajectory. We will turn a corner for the better at the end of December, and wave goodbye to the trauma and heartbreak of this year. In 2021 we begin to rebuild ourselves up in a new way.

While Jupiter can indicate success, justice, and expansion, in essence Jupiter amplifies. Here Jupiter amplifies Saturn, which deals with limits, regulations, and control issues. What’s the best use of this conjunction? Get organized, because discipline and responsibility will be a strong influence. Let go of bad habits and cultivate good ones.

Monday, December 7th: Moon in Virgo wants us to start a new diet and exercise routine; perhaps rearrange the house so it’s more efficient. But with Mercury currently in Sagittarius, we might want to read all day instead.

Tuesday, December 8th: Moon into Libra at 4pm Pacific brings a taste of romance to our day. If you need to talk to your boss, or hammer out agreements, today and tomorrow are PERFECT for it.

Wednesday, December 9th: Moon in Libra. Sociability, communication and fairness. If something in your life feels out of balance, you can correct it now.

Thursday, December 10th: Moon in Libra all day, then into Scorpio at 6pm Pacific. The mood of the day could be heavy, and people might be focused on their own trajectories, so you focus on your path.

Friday, December 11th: Moon in Scorpio (informed by Mars in Aries). Do Magick! Expect occult experiences and deep conversations with people. Sexy date night if you can meet in person.

Saturday, December 12th: Moon in Scorpio, then into Sagittarius at 6:39pm Pacific. Have outside adventures today! Put energy towards your goals.

Sunday, December 13th: We are in the orb of the New Moon solar eclipse in Sagittarius, tomorrow morning (Monday) at 8:17am. Prepare for a new beginning.

The Sun continues it’s travels through the sign of Sagittarius, the Archer. We are renovating our beliefs, and aligning ourselves with new meaning and purpose. Monday night, we had a Full Moon Eclipse at 8 Gemini at 1:30am Pacific. This week is an opportunity for a breakthrough – for something to be released that no longer fits our forward path. If you have any planets near 8 degrees Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces or Virgo, you might experience some major changes in the next couple of months.

Neptune stationed Direct (forward) last Saturday, but is standing still – and is strong – until mid December. During the retrograde of the last few months, we have confronted an old, karmic delusion that’s been holding us back from being present with ourselves. Now we’re letting it go. We are turning forward to a new way of being in the world.

There’s two directions in a Neptune transit: you can reconnect with your soul through inspiration, spirituality, music or creativity, or you can escape through alcohol, drugs and fantasy. Either way will lead you further down the road to self knowledge. Neptune heals us, and takes us to the heights of imagination. We are highly sensitive and attuned to invisible currents right now, so being an open, receptive vehicle for revelations is a good use of this time. If you are on a spiritual path, new worlds could appear; if you’re an artist, tarot reader, or psychic, this is a powerful divinatory time. Neptune also rules martyrdom, service, charity, healing, and spiritual insight.

Monday, November 30th: Full Moon Eclipse at 8 Gemini. Something from June comes to fruition, and either overcomes a hurdle, or ends. With an eclipse, we can see things within ourselves that have been a blind spot, so it’s an illuminating Moon for purging and healing our shadow sides. Gemini is VERY chatty and social, but using remote communications might be the safest platform. With Neptune standing still, pursue and embrace facts. We are facing the shadow and the unknown.

Tuesday, December 1st: Moon void-of-course in Gemini all day! Mercury enters Sagittarius (it’s detriment) at 11:51am Pacific. Mercury is weakened and overwhelmed in it’s detriment for the next several weeks. Clarity and decisiveness become lost in Sagittarian philosophy and “big picture” mind frames. Getting outside and going on solitary adventures will clear your head.

Wednesday, December 2nd: Moon VOC in Gemini until 1:45pm Pacific. The Cancer Moon in the evening will bring emotions, sensitivity and dreaminess to the rest of the week. Not a good night for serious discussions, avoid social complications.

Thursday, December 3rd: Moon in Cancer is part of a big Water trine today. Moon in Cancer trines Venus at 14 Scorpio, then Neptune at 18 Pisces. It’s a deliciously creative day, so let poetic, artistic inspirations flow. Psychic intuitiveness runs high, and romance is in the air. People will be sensitive today, so allow for people’s feelings.

Friday, December 4th: Moon in Leo. Restlessness today and possible questioning of the future. Try and stay in the present and deal with things as they arise. Information about your future comes up in the evening. It’s a great day to find authenticity with people. Organize your time and practice those internal boundaries.

Saturday, December 5th: Moon in Leo, and goes void at 2:28pm. Get creative! Venus trines Neptune at 18 degrees Scorpio and Pisces respectively. This brings beauty and true inspiration to art and romance. Beautiful aspect that highlights romantic passion, inspiration, and harmonizing within groups. If you are creative, psychic, inclined to the mystical, spiritual religious and metaphysical this week and next, and especially next weekend could be a wonderful time. Be kind to the feminine in your life. Enjoy some beautiful art and appreciate the wonders of nature going on all around us. Fall in love again with the mystery of life.

Sunday, December 6th: Moon in Virgo. We’ve turned a spiritual corner over the last week. We end this week with Mars moving faster, and everything in our lives moving forward in a positive way.

We saw some huge shifts last week, mostly around our inner boundaries, energy levels, and the over-arching 2020 transformations. Mars went Direct last Friday, but is very slow-moving, so it will remain at 15 Aries for the rest of November. If you have any planets near 15 Aries, 15, Cancer, 15 Libra or 15 Capricorn, they are getting super heated and charged up with Mars energy this month. Mars activates our drives, passions, lust and ambition, so look at how and where these aspects are cropping up in your life. Use November to plan which way you want to go, but wait until December to take decisive action.

We also experienced the momentous conjunction between Jupiter and Pluto at 22 Capricorn last Thursday – the same degree as the Saturn/Pluto conjunction last January that heralded the pandemic. It’s terrible to see the cases spiking again. Jupiter expands whatever it touches, and in this case it’s spreading the virus to epic proportions. Please take care of yourselves. On a personal level, this conjunction brings new ways to manage and grow with the massive transformations in your life this year.

Last Saturday night we reset our emotions with the New Moon at 22 degrees Scorpio. Did you have any visions or clear dreams this weekend? Messages came to each of us about the future through revelations, experiences, dreams, or even the words of friends. We take our first steps on this new path this week. Scorpio is the sign of regeneration, and is symbolized in the tarot by the Death card, which means one door closes and another one opens. Look to where you want to rebirth yourself, and put all of your focus there.

And there’s more! Sunday, today, we had Venus (Love) in a square with Pluto (Reformation), which sets the tone for the week. Venus is in Libra, where her energies are expressed in a delectable way. Libra demands equality, justice and fairness, and these issues could come up in our relationships this week. Pluto makes it imperative that our relationships evolve to match our New Moon path. This is the first of three squares Venus will make this week! We wrap up with a big reality check when Venus squares Saturn on Thursday.

Monday, November 16th: Moon in Sagittarius. Venus square Jupiter. The essence of the New Moon and Venus/Pluto square is still strong. The mood will be lighter today, just ride the waves. Spend some time outside to clear your mind. Excellent day to read philosophy, or spend your energy on being wildly romantic or creative 🙂

Tuesday, November 17th: Moon in Capricorn, and Mercury opposes Uranus. Lots of electricity and wild ideas in the air. Ground yourself through working hard, especially on things you’ve been avoiding. Issues could arise around understanding, truth, and honesty, as well as challenges with business. Focus on the goal.

Wednesday, November 18th: Moon in Capricorn. Moon approaches the “Big three” in Capricorn i.e. Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn. Heaviness can result and you may not feel like doing a lot, which is fine. Do not demand anything from authority figures today because they will be resistant. Capricorn also brings certainty.

Thursday, November 19th: Moon in Aquarius and Venus squares Saturn. Reality check with relationships today. If you can, focus on what your mind tells you rather than your heart. Embrace reality. Also, let your creative genius out to play today. Good for connecting with friends and groups of folks.

Friday, November 20th: Moon in Aquarius, but void-of-course at 4:49pm Pacific 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. No risk-taking.

Saturday, November 21st: Moon void ALL DAY in Aquarius until entering Pisces at 8:06pm Pacific!! Venus enters Scorpio and Sun into Sagittarius. No risk-taking or negotiation during a void-of-course Moon. Don’t buy anything either, if you can help it. Best to be creative and work on things already started.

Sunday, November 22nd: Moon in Pisces. Swim around your intuitions, ideas and creativity.

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.

We had a life changing Full Moon Halloween on Saturday! Did you feel the intensity? It was an eye-opener, with the Full Moon conjunct Uranus at 8 Taurus – which also means the Sun and Uranus were in exact opposition. This is liberation, the desire to do something different, alongside revelations about how you want to live in the future. Whatever unresolved issues have been hanging around for the last two years, Saturday’s Moon gave you the needed clarity and answers. The power of this Full Moon will continue to unfold this week.

Also, the Sun traveling through the tunnels of Scorpio gives us opportunities to define our boundaries – especially the internal ones. Can you hold the line if your Will is tested? Can you push away that extra cookie? If someone asks you to do something that goes against your heart and experience, will you let them cross your boundary? Scorpio wants you to define what you’ll put up with and what you won’t – and to mean it. The Universe is asking us to be real, and get honest with ourselves this month. This ties in to the greater purpose of the year 2020 as we go through the “Great Awakening” – we are each healing our relationship with ourselves.

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

As for the election, it is inextricably tied to the unearthing of America’s shadow, as our country approaches it’s Pluto return. All the repressed, toxic energy under the surface of the United States is coming up to be purged and healed. I see the toxic underbelly as racism, gender discrimination, and the disparities between the rich and the poor. The forgotten people, the mentally ill, the incarcerated… all need to be acknowledged and treated with maturity and vision. Rampant greed must be checked and the welfare of all people made the priority. On Tuesday either we will have a new president, or we will have another four years with a man who represents this shadow side. Try and remember that the Big Picture is really about the US confronting and dealing with it’s shadow side.

Monday, November 2nd: Moon in Gemini. Mercury is Gemini’s ruler, and is currently standing still over our heads at 26 Libra. Mercury goes Direct on Tuesday at 9:50am Pacific. If you have important agreements to hammer out with people, aim to do it anytime after Wednesday. We will see huge amounts of information today and tomorrow as Mercury stations – be sure and research facts.

Tuesday, November 3rd: Moon in Gemini, Mercury Direct at 9:50am Pacific. This is going to be a crazy day with hearsay and different, conflicting currents of information. Stay grounded, and try to stay off the roads if possible. Electronics might experience hiccups. This will be a crazy day in the news, and things will not be as they appear to be at first. Take heart. Why oh why do we have an election while Mercury stations Direct… I don’t know.

Wednesday, November 4th: Moon VOC in Gemini until 1:45pm Pacific. This is the day to stay inside if possible. The Cancer Moon in the evening will bring emotions and sensitivity to the Mercury Direct instability. If there’s going to be protesting over the election, it will likely start tonight.

Thursday, November 5th: Moon in Cancer is part of a big Water trine today. Moon in Cancer trines Sun in Scorpio, and they both trine Neptune in Pisces. It’s a deliciously creative day, so let poetic, artistic inspirations flow. Psychic intuitiveness runs high, and romance is in the air. People will be sensitive today, so allow for people’s feelings.

Friday, November 6th: Moon in Cancer. Lots of sensitivity, sweetness and nostalgia, however Mercury squares Saturn once again. Communications could be limited or take a serious tone, and diplomacy may be difficult with authority figures. On the other side of the equation, it’s a great day to find authenticity with people. Organize your time and practice those internal boundaries.

Saturday, November 7th: Moon VOC in Cancer. Day of rest after a crazy week. Get creative and connect with friends; use your imagination and be receptive to inspiration and visions. Venus trine Uranus will bring some excitement to art and romance. Watch for unconventional romance and push creative boundaries.

Week of October 12th

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.
