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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We begin this week with a balsamic, fallow Moon, building towards a New Moon at 16 Virgo next Monday, Labor Day, September 6th. Leading up to this New Moon, we have an opportunity to release our perfectionism, laziness, self criticism, procrastination, and cluttered houses (i.e. Sun in Virgo). We are wrapping things up, finishing projects and adjusting to new, uncertain conditions. Honestly, it’s a tough time for many people.

We are in a world of extremes, and it’s never seemed so pronounced as it does right now. The Western side of the country is on fire, while a huge, catastrophic hurricane sliced through and leveled the south. Mercury entered Libra Sunday night, which will hopefully create a way for us to listen to and help each other. This is a good position for partnerships, negotiation, and creative activity. This Venus-ruled Mercury placement can bring harmony to life. Celebrate art and love.

The Sun in Virgo is squaring the North and South Nodes of the Moon this week. Watch for sign posts directing you to your future. Mars in Virgo will oppose Neptune in Pisces, and trine Pluto in Capricorn this week, setting off the same aspect that Venus and Mercury encountered recently. Mars wants us to put our plans into ACTION.

Monday, August 30th: Moon in Gemini enters her 4th quarter, and we are in the dark of the Moon for the next several days. Don’t work too hard this week. The dark of the Moon is a time to rest and reflect. Moon trine Saturn puts our emotions in affinity with our ambitions, and smooths over any rough spots. Moon in Gemini encourages us to talk about it.

Tuesday, August 31st: Moon in Gemini goes void at 1:45pm Pacific for the rest of the day. She also makes five aspects, so ride the waves. The Moon goes through every sign, and aspects every planet EVERY month. The Moon ties the astrology together. Keep a low profile today with the void moon. Follow plans that have already been made.

Wednesday, September 1st: Moon in Cancer makes a few minor aspects. We might need solitude, since our sensitivities are at a monthly peak. Give yourself whatever you need today.

Thursday,  September 2nd: Moon in Cancer loves a visit to a pool, lake, river, or ocean if you feel inclined. There’s a few Moon aspects, but the big event today is Mars opposing Neptune. We might experience resistance or disillusionment with the things we want to pursue. Mars is our Will, while Neptune blurs our vision so we can commune with the divine. Don’t give in to feeling lost today, explore your imagination and creativity instead.

Friday,  September 3rd: Moon in Leo doesn’t make any aspects until a sextile with Mercury in the evening. It’s a quiet day astrologically, but the Moon in Leo insists we all have a good time. It’s a heart-filled day, so go out and have an adventure.

Saturday, September 4th: Moon in Leo. Mercury trine Saturn in the evening helps us communicate our truth. Our thinking can also get a reality check. Writers can make progress with editing and organizing their ideas. Whatever comes up, go ahead and talk about it or do some journaling. We are in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle so lots of old feelings and issues could be coming up, so we can release them.

Sunday,  September 5th: Moon in Leo is void-of-course from 7:22am to 4:06pm Pacific, when she enters Virgo. We are in the New Moon in Virgo now, so of course today is good for tidying up the house, running errands, and fixing anything broken. Toss stuff out and let things go – someone else can use it. The big aspect today is Venus square Pluto. Relationships could have a crisis come up that will lead to a deeper understanding, or a breaking point. If you’re single, don’t take any risks. Pluto has a dark, unpredictable energy to it, so practice restraint.

The Sun moved into Virgo on Sunday, heralding the beginning of harvest season! We also had a Full Moon at the tail end of Aquarius. Something in your life is coming to a close, and something is starting – and it’s making you stretch out of your comfort zone. The transition from Leo to Virgo is profound. With the Sun in Leo, we reveled in our true identity, and practiced new ways of expressing it to the world; now with Virgo we get to work.

Mars in Virgo had a friendly trine to Uranus in Taurus on Sunday around midnight, and will continue all week. What are the ways you can liberate your drive, so you can manifest your Will on the world? Mars wants us to TAKE ACTION to find freedom, and defend our future (Uranus). Be open to pathways showing up that are outside of the norm.

Monday, August 23rd: Moon in Pisces opposes Mars and Mercury in Virgo today, emotionally integrating events of last week. We’re still deep in the gravity of yesterday’s Full Moon in Aquarius/Pisces, and we might see more unfolding developments. Venus trine Saturn is exact in the pre-dawn hours, helping us achieve discipline in our artistic ambitions. Set necessary limits and get to work. The issue of commitment may come up in relationships.

Tuesday, August 24th: Moon in Pisces is void until entering Aries at noon Pacific time. Moon in Aries enhances the mood of “Mars Tuesday”, but Mars itself is SO unhappy over in Virgo. Not a great day for Mars magick. We’re going to have to wait a couple of months for him to enter Scorpio. Also today, Mercury in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces, bringing up confusion in communications. Watch the misinformation expand it’s reach today, but don’t engage; focus on art instead.

Wednesday, August 25th: Moon in Aries opposes Venus in Libra, which can impact relationships and bring up some scuffles. Watch your temper. With Moon in Aries, keep calm while driving, or dealing with insecure, headstrong people. There’s a feeling of rebirth today, so be in tune with what you’re birthing in your life. Mercury is SO HAPPY in Virgo right now, so today is fabulous for Air Magick of any kind.

Thursday, August 26th: Moon in Aries goes void-of-course at 2:14pm Pacific for several hours – entering Taurus at 9:27pm. Look out. Don’t take any risks, and give up reasoning with stubborn people. Hard to get concessions from anyone today. In the morning, Mercury in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn, which makes us want deep, meaningful communications. Wait until tomorrow. Or even next week.

Friday, August 27th: Moon in Taurus (EXALTED) with Venus in Libra (in RULERSHIP)? Yep, this is a FANTASTIC day for Venus Magick. Anyone can burn a green candle to attract money, pink for friends and red for passionate love. Get some fresh flowers in your house and wear nice clothes. Moon squaring Saturn in the afternoon means we can deal with reality and wrap up work by dinnertime. In the evening, merge with the sensual side of Taurus, and indulge yourself in romance, food, or nature.

Saturday, August 28th: Moon in Taurus conjuncts Uranus and trines Mars in Virgo. The lovely, romantic vibe continues, but this time, expect the unexpected. Projects might need adjustment. Also, Venus is inconjunct with Uranus, which brings the desire for independence and freedom. Let yourself have the time or space you need today, in order to reconnect with who you are and what you want.

Sunday, August 29th: Moon goes into Gemini at 9:42am, and later squares Jupiter and trines Mercury. This enhances the lightning-fast-communication vibe of the Gemini Moon. We want to socialize and talk to everyone. THEN Mercury enters Libra at 10:10pm, bringing a need for harmony and balance to our relationships.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Week of August 1st: Harvest festival LAMMAS

CURRENTLY:
Sun at 11 Leo (in rulership, very strong)
Mercury at 14 Leo
Venus at 15 Virgo (in detriment. No Venus Magick now)
Mars at 3 Virgo
Jupiter RETROGRADE at 29 Aquarius
Saturn RETROGRADE at 10 Aquarius (rulership)
Neptune RETROGRADE at 22 Pisces (rulership)
Pluto RETROGRADE at 25 Capricorn
North Node at 8 Gemini

Mars joined Venus in Virgo last week, and now we’re busy organizing our lives. In Virgo, Mars lets go of his armor and becomes a specialist who makes lists and gets things done. There is amazing focus available to us right now, as well as attention to detail. Virgo wants to be of service by providing a practical way of reaching our goals, without losing track of the details (or ourselves). Avoid nit-picking arguments and being overly critical of your efforts. Mars and Venus in Virgo can be cranky and irritable.

We begin this week with a balsamic, fallow Moon, building towards a New Moon at 16 Leo next Sunday. Leading up to this New Moon, we have an opportunity to release our laziness, procrastination, and fears of the future (i.e. Sun in Leo). And Sunday was a Sabbat, the ancient festival of Lammas! Lammas is the first harvest festival of the year, signifying the height of Summer and the turn towards Fall. Here are the Goddesses and Gods of Lammas:

Demeter/Ceres: Goddess of grains and the harvest, and mother to Persephone, who is about to return to the Underworld for the Fall and Winter. The change in weather is the grief of Demeter being separated from Persephone.

Cronus/Saturn: Greek god of the harvest and the first father of the universe. He is usually portrayed with a sickle in hand, and is considered a harvest God. He had his own holiday, called the Kronia, when the Greeks celebrated the harvest. It was held in the month of Hekatombaion, with equates roughly to July/August.

Hestia/Vesta: Goddess of Fire and the Hearth, she protects the homes of her worshippers.

Lugh: This is the Celtic God that gave Lammas, or Lughnasadh, it’s name! Lugh is the god of light, truth, oaths and the arts. Tradition says that Lugh created the festival of Lughnasadh in honor of his foster mother and earth goddess, Tailtiu.

Renenutet: Egyptian goddess of nourishment, the harvest, and fertility. Also goddess of the soul’s true name. Sometimes considered the wife of Sobek.

Sobek: Egyptian crocodile god, he was also the god of the Nile. In Egypt, the flooding of the Nile is the primary source of essential nutrients and minerals to the fields, so if the Nile does not flood or has a poor flood in a given year, it can cause a bad harvest. Sobek would be important around this time of year, as the people would want to thank him for a good harvest. Also a protective god and a creator god.

Monday, August 2nd: Moon in Gemini makes a couple of tough squares with Jupiter and Mars. There’s also a big Saturn influence over the beginning of the week due to the Sun’s opposition with Saturn in the middle of the night. Today could be kinda tough, with all of us needing to come up with the hard, cold facts. With the Moon in Gemini, we will find the way through this with our quick minds and communications.

Tuesday, August 3rd: Moon in Gemini makes four nice aspects today – taking the edge off Mercury squaring Uranus in the early evening. This aspect can bring sudden changes and nervous energy. Conversations could take unexpected turns, and it might be difficult to reach understanding through the drama. Leave it for tomorrow. On the bright side, we had a revolutionary Venus trine Uranus in the middle of the night which can enhance our imaginations and relationships.

Wednesday, August 4th: Moon in Gemini goes void at 12:38pm, then moves into Cancer around 2:15pm Pacific. Bring on the hugs and food lol. Moon trines Jupiter around the same time, adding to the feelings of indulgence. Sun trine Chiron today brings lovely opportunities for healing to our old wounds, or healing through children.

Thursday, August 5th: Moon in Cancer sextiles Mars and Uranus, but other than that it’s a quiet day. We are in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle, preparing for rebirth this Sunday. Lots of old feelings and issues could be coming up, so we can release them. The Cancerian Moon loves a visit to a pool, lake, river, or the ocean.

Friday, August 6th: Moon in Cancer goes void of course at 3:12pm Pacific, and makes a couple nice aspects with Venus and Neptune. There’s an opposition with Pluto in the late afternoon which can bring up control issues. Then we have a biggie – Sun square Uranus – which can bring up that nervous, dramatic behavior. Take a different approach to issues from earlier in the week. Embrace liberation and independence.

Saturday, August 7th: Moon in Leo opposes Saturn in Aquarius today. We get a glimpse into the underlying tensions of 2021, so be present for what occurs today. Pay attention, the Universe is sending you messages. Also, walk carefully around people’s feelings, because Moon opposing Saturn can bring negativity, pessimism or reality checks. The New Moon is tomorrow morning!

Sunday, August 8th: New Moon in Leo at 6:50am Pacific squares Uranus. Today is fabulous for Sun Magick, since this New Moon occurs on a Sunday. It’s a rare event, allowing magicians to fully access the enormous power of the Sun. Just Do It! Today is the rebirth of creativity, romance, and all things artistic. Tarot card of the day is Strength – tame your inner lion with compassion and patience.

The Sun moved into Leo last Thursday, entering his home kingdom. The Sun is in his natural element in Leo, and shines his brightest! Now is the time to do Sun magick if you have the inclination. Mercury is zooming through the last degrees of Cancer, and joins the Sun in Leo this coming Tuesday. This will be a great change for all of us. Our minds have been water logged with Cancerian feelings, sensitivities and insecurities. In Leo, Mercury is birthed from the Cancerian womb, becomes the Child, clears his head and fully expresses himself!

Meanwhile, Venus has moved into Virgo, becoming an Earth Goddess for the next few weeks. Venus in Virgo encourages us to embody our inner priestess, and to handle our habits and health in the proper way – let’s eat, sleep, and exercise in the right ways. Mars follows closely behind and joins her in Virgo this week. Give expression to something.

Monday, July 26th: Moon in Pisces makes a couple of minor aspects. We’re still feeling the gravity of yesterday’s Mercury in Cancer opposing Pluto in Capricorn. This aspect brings life changing thoughts, revelations and communications. Evolution through the mind is powerful. When the Mind grasps a new concept, it cannot go back to the former idea.

Tuesday, July 27th: Moon in Pisces goes void around 6:15pm Pacific, and Mercury enters Leo at the same time! Mercury has been moving lightning fast, and is well expressed through the sign of Leo. Our minds and hearts are connected, and commmunications are enhanced. Today is excellent for singing and playing music, if that’s your thing; any artistic ventures will go far today.

Wednesday, July 28th: Moon in Aries, and Jupiter (going backwards or ‘retrograde’) falls back into Aquarius. We will be revisiting issues from the past year, but our approach to solving them will be matured. With Moon in Aries, keep calm while driving, or dealing with insecure, headstrong people. There’s a feeling of rebirth today, so be in tune with what you’re birthing in your life.

Thursday, July 29th: Moon in Aries, and In the morning, there’s a major opposition between Mars in Leo and Jupiter in Aquarius. Focus on leadership. Helping other people shine, is the best use of this energy. Lead with your heart. Mars moves into Virgo around 1:30pm Pacific. Mars isn’t thrilled about Virgo AT ALL, but it IS good for planning new strategies for tackling problems. Mars in Virgo streamlines processes for maximum efficiency. Just go easy on perfectionism and self criticism.

Friday, July 30th: Moon into Taurus at 1:08pm Pacific. Moon sextiles Jupiter, then trines Mars in Virgo an hour later. Keep a cool head and engage in calm communications. With the Taurus Moon (exalted) and these aspects, we could encounter stubborness with people today. Focus on the sensual side of Taurus, and indulge yourself in romance, food, or nature.

Saturday, July 31st: Moon in Taurus, AND enters it’s 4th quarter; the dark of the Moon. The Moon makes three squares today, which gives us some work to do to find agreement or forward progress. Moon conjuncts Uranus bringing surprises.

Sunday, August 1st: Moon in Taurus still today! Sun conjuncts Mercury in Leo at sunrise. Mercury opposes Saturn at 2:50pm Pacific which can bring a deep need for reality-based conversations. Careful not to fall into pessimism or negative thinking.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

There are a couple powerful aspects this week with Mars. It will oppose Saturn, and then square Uranus; both of which can be tense and explosive. Also, last Thursday’s Full Moon in Capricorn is still unfolding, so stay calm this week and avoid arguments. The Dark of the Moon/4th quarter begins this Thursday, July 1st, and is waning until Friday, July 9th, when we have a New Moon in Cancer. The next two weeks are full of squares and other challenging aspects, so tensions could be high. Take excellent care of yourself; get good rest, good food and good company.

Mercury went Direct last Tuesday, and is barely moving. When a planet is stationary, before it starts picking up speed again, it’s powers are said to be very concentrated. This is a powerful time to speak and be visible! Need to clear the air? This is a great time to do it. Say what you NEED and let people know what you’re feeling, just do it calmly. What message do you want to send out about yourself or interests? What do you want people to notice about you, and what do you want to accomplish? Think about these things as Mercury begins to move forward.

Monday, June 28th: Moon into Pisces at 10:51am Pacific, and Venus entered Leo in the night. Venus loves being in Leo. Women will be creative, strong, and heart centered over the next several weeks. Venus inconjunct Jupiter is exact today. Watch out for overindulging and risk taking. Be gentle with yourself and have some fun. Everything cheers up in the evening with the Moon conjunct Jupiter.

Tuesday, June 29th: Moon in Pisces trines the Sun in Cancer. Fluffy-watery-Neptune day could have us seeking emotional security. Give yourself whatever you need – a nice dinner, phone calls with friends, or maybe solitude. It’s all good, just follow your instincts. This combination brings out emotions, music and creativity. Moon sextile Uranus in the afternoon could bring some surprises.

Wednesday, June 30th: Moon in Pisces goes void-of-course at 10:40am, then into Aries 6:21pm Pacific. That’s such a long void period! Follow plans and focus on the work in front of you. Keep your calm while driving, or dealing with insecure, headstrong people. There’s a feeling of rebirth today, so be in tune with what you’re birthing in your life.

Thursday, July 1st: Moon in Aries and five aspects! The big one is at 6:08am – the major opposition between Saturn in Aquarius and Mars in Leo. We’ve been building up to this all week. Both Mars and Saturn are “malefics”, capable of bringing destructive forces and major power struggles. Mars already wants to be in charge, but in Leo he’s a raging narcissist about it. Meanwhile, Saturn in Aquarius is on the side of humanity and forward progress. These two major planets agree on drive, ambition and hard work, so these are the best things to focus on this week. Moon trine Mars in the evening gives us industrious ways to work through the intensity.

Friday, July 2nd: Moon in Aries. Today is the eye of the hurricane. We’re still feeling the big forces at work from yesterday, but there’s big stuff coming tomorrow. Keep a cool head and engage in calm communications. Mercury sextile the Moon is the only aspect today, and that helps us understand each other.

Saturday, July 3rd: Moon in Taurus. The Sun is inconjunct Saturn, which brings struggles with authority figures. Your ego could be challenged, or you’ll find there’s more hard work to be done.
THEN we have Mars in Leo square to Uranus in Taurus! Talk about irritability!
This brings conflicts about boundaries and who’s in charge; also conflicts between responsibilities and the need for independence. Suppressed drives can rise to the surface demanding release. The houses that Taurus and Leo occupy in your chart are the way to make peace. You can look it up for yourself on astro.com, or go to my appointments page for 15 minute phone reading.

Sunday, July 4th: Moon in Taurus forms five different aspects, three of which are tense squares. eesh… Hopefully the fireworks will stay in the sky and out of our personal lives. Take it easy, and validate where you have independence in your life.

Today is the Summer Solstice! The high point of light for all of 2021! Happy Solstice to you and yours. This is such a magical day – and it’s the climax of the year. From here on the days will get shorter.

There are many changes ahead making this a wild astrological week. First, there is a heavy influence of the element “water”, since many planets are interacting in water signs. The Moon is in Scorpio right now, the Sun just went into Cancer today, and is now forming a trine with Jupiter over in Pisces, AND Jupiter and Neptune are both stationing retrograde this week in the sign of Pisces! When planets are stationary retrograde, their influences are extremely strong and influential. All three water signs are currently being activated, which brings up healing, emotions and intuitive messages.

Both Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces soften hard edges and boundaries, bring up inner truths, and reconnect us with our Soul. This morning, June 20, Jupiter began its retrograde through Pisces and Aquarius. The king is turning around to retrace his steps through his ocean kingdoms. Watch for overindulgencees. The positive side of this transit, is that it encourages messages of inner healing, peaceful resistance, communal spirit, and compassion in our world. For the next week or so, Jupiter will be standing still in the sky at 2 Pisces, so if you have any planets in the early degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces, they are getting a powerful boost of luck and expansion.

Venus trines Neptune right after the Sun enters Cancer tomorrow, June 21, giving the Summer Solstice a dreamy, loving vibe. Mercury turns direct in Gemini this Wednesday the 23rd! The Capricorn Full Moon arrives this Thursday, June 24, and Venus enters Leo on June 27! This is truly an eventful week, and each day brings some new, major shift.

Monday, June 21st: Moon in Scorpio and Venus trine Neptune. Imagination is strengthened. This aspect is inspiring for artists, and will be with us all week! You can really make some breakthroughs in the areas of love and art. Enjoy water activities. Hang out by a pool. The Scorpio Moon can bring out the truth, but also make people sensitive, so think before you speak.

Tuesday, June 22nd: Moon in Sagittarius and Mercury Direct in Gemini. We leave rumination behind as our thoughts turn forwards again. All of our illusions about the people in our lives, as well as the stories we tell ourselves, are being purged in order to make way for a new path.Adventures pop up everywhere and our energy rises, especially with Moon trine Mars. Enjoy the optimistic mood as enter the orb of the Full Moon on Thursday. Creative exploration.

Wednesday, June 23rd: Moon in Sagittarius, Sun trine Jupiter AND Venus opposes Pluto. The Sun/Jupiter trine brings a wonderful bounty of opportunity, FUN, and luck! The thing is, Venus opposing Pluto at the same time brings intensity to the mix. We have the chance to deeply connect in our relationships. Get out and mix with people today. Possibilities abound for fun, creativity, progress and connection.

Thursday, June 24th: Full Moon rises at 3 Capricorn, which is a hard place for the Moon. She is in her detriment in Capricorn, which celebrates “getting ahead” more than vulnerabilities. People become cautious, stubborn and distrustful during a Capricorn Moon, and it’s hard to get concessions from authority figures. We can simplify and organize, but the undercurrent of the joyful aspects are still present. We are currently harvesting what we began in January, when the Sun was in Capricorn. The energies of this Full Moon will unfold over the week ahead as well as the next six months. We will have peak experiences with our ambitions, career, and personal story.

Friday, June 25th: Moon in Capricorn and Neptune stations retrograde. We’re still in the influence of yesterday’s full moon, but with Neptune standing still the intuitive side of things comes to the forefront. It’s a spacy swim through aethers and different dimensions – perfect for artists and lovers. Go to the beach.

Saturday, June 26th: Moon in Aquarius on a Saturday is great for saturnian Magick, i.e. discipline, structure and focus. Moon makes a powerful conjunction with Pluto, adding intensity to the day, and Venus opposes the Moon, bringing up settlements (hopefully good ones!) in relationships.

Sunday, June 27th: Moon in Aquarius goes void at noon for the whole rest of the day! Venus also moves into Leo in the middle of the night. Follow predetermined plans, but have fun today! Venus is happy in Leo, and loves to explore creativity, fashion and performance.
