  • April is bringing us far more than the usual number of simultaneous retrograde planets, and with that, the need to do introspection, the need to reassess our  own values, including how we value ourself and our needs. There is a need to focus when it is difficult to do so, a need to be strong when we may feel it's just too much to ask. We also had a powerful Full Moon in Libra on April 10, giving even more charge to the aspects of transformation change we've been dealing with for many months. There will be a New Moon in Taurus on April 26, allowing us to get back into our bodies and our senses following a period of confusion and unpredictability. More details when you click on the title.
  • March has been like riding a roller coaster through a wild fire! Where am I going? Where have I been? Can I breathe? I'm so distracted. There's so much to see, and it's whirring by in a flash! It started with most planets of the chart concentrated within less than 40 degrees, in either Pisces or Aries. With strong aspects to the remaining planets, we have been pushed from the inside and the outside. We seek freedom and independence, yet we want to be seen and loved and appreciated. We want to move forward, but have a difficult time letting go of where we've been. There's help. There's hope. But we need patience, we need perseverence, and we need a willingness to stay the course. We have been, and are in, a time of epic change!
  • No matter how strong we wish for it, we find that looking at the outer world simply does not bring us clarity. It's just too confusing, too chaotic! During the month of February, Jupiter stationing retrograde early on, reminds us that turning inward is the answer to finding what we seek. The powerful cardinal T-square, active for the past several months, remains strong during February, and Venus and Mars join Uranus and Eris in Aries, giving us almost more fiery, impulsive energy than we can handle! We also have a Full Moon in Leo along with a lunar eclipse, and later in the month, the New Moon in Pisces is accompanied by a solar eclipse! The end of the month finds us with both a stellium in Aries, and a stellium in Pisces, and having to balance these contradictory energies as we take steps toward individuation!

  • Many of us began 2017 feeling like a stranger in a strange land. Still in a state of grief over a troubling election, and then receiving even more troubling news as we moved forward in time. When we look closely at the astrology of the month, however, we find some purpose in the challenges. By looking inward, we can find our Capricornian authority, ground ourselves in our own authenticity, and construct a path forward. It does take time, and we mustn't be fooled into rushing headlong onto a path not of our own choosing. Click on the title of the blog for more detail.
  • December started out with contradictory energies and continued to bounce us between questioning our reality, and accepting the powerful changes transforming our world. It has been uncomfortable, challenging, yet having us dig deep. We have had to be questing for our internal truths, stepping up so we can assist our fellow journeyers to bring forward ways to improve our world, while so much seems to be crashing backwards in time.

  • We have an emphasis on the outer planets for November. It's the month of Scorpio, so Pluto stirs the soul, keeping us riled, while Uranus opens our eyes to visions we don't necessarily want to see. Meanwhile Neptune keeps us confused, rattled, and able to see little but illusion. But we must allow Saturn and Mars to keep us putting one foot in front of the other, carrying on until the storm lifts, and we see what desolation has resulted. Then together, we must find solace in solidarity, taking action where we can, to care for one another. Click on the title for more details.
  • October began with lots of cardinal energy, hard aspects and a need to find balance amidst the tension. Balance is possible, despite the insanity of world affairs. But we need to take time for looking within, for looking at the larger picture and not just the details of the moment. We need to hold fast to our inner voice of truth, and not fall victim to outer voices of condemnation. October moves us deeper into Fall, as the days continue to darken, and we prepare for a new cycle. Click on the title for more details.
  • September is filled with powerful Mercury retrograde moments, eclipses to take our breath away, a Full Moon in Libra, and not one but two New Moons! And along the way, Saturn and Neptune are in strong square aspect, Uranus and Mars have their wild and crazy moments, and the Pluto and Chiron wounds show up once again. But we will make it through!

  • July began with a preponderance of water signs, and strong Pluto in the mix. We struggled with lots of emotion, frustrations and impatience. The New Moon on the Fourth of July only intensified our emotions, while bringing up old feelings of insecurity, to carry with us through the Moon cycle. Change was knocking at the door, and many of us trembled at the thought. Happenings in the world around us brought more fear, grief, and a wish for it all to just stop. But Pluto and Uranus, Saturn with Neptune, prodded us to stay awake, listen to our inner voice, make the changes we need, and promote conditions for a better world. Click the title for more details.
  • A mutable Grand Cross dominates the scene as June begins, sending mixed messages, and creating confusion. We settle on an idea, and then another one appears in contradiction. Which do we choose? Which path do we take? It's time for action, but we fear making a mistake. The New Moon in Gemini insists on new beginnings, a new vision for ourselves, and for the world. But our vision seems impractical. How can we manifest the impossible? The world is calling us to evolve, to make changes in our belief systems, our structures, our sense of connectedness. The old ways are no longer working. We must look within, connect with each other, but remain true to our own inner compass. Click on the title for more details.
