  • July is filled with intensity. There are weeks of challenging aspects, the likelihood of some rash actions, irritability, and disturbing news. It is of great importance to be self-aware, have the knowledge that we are all vulnerable to these energies, and yet do not have to be overwhelmed by them. We need to draw our boundaries around others anger and projections, walk away when it's needed, and keep reminding ourselves of our own vision and values. The Capricorn Full Moon was July 8-9, depending on time zone, and the New Moon in Leo is July 23, starting the cycle which will end at the solar eclipse on August 21 Click on the title for more details.
  • June provides many key moments when we can be distracted and veer off course, or maintain vigilance and responsibility, staying true to ourselves. The planets align in ways that can be challenging, particularly to what we are used to, or the status-quo. But there are also opportunities to invest in new information, new ways to communicate, and new ways to stand up for ourselves and what we really need and want for our life. There's a Full Moon in Sagittarius, and a New Moon in Cancer, both with strong aspects to Neptune, and opportunities to gain in consciousness. Jupiter stations direct and Neptune stations retrograde during the month. Click on the title for the full details.
  • May is not a month of ease, but a month of easing up. There is stress, but a bit less stress. It is spring, and we are spreading roots, pushing new parts of ourselves through to manifestation. For our blooms to be fully present, we must release the old coverings, and let the new parts shine. The new growth is not always aware of how strong it is, because it's new and seeing the world for the first time. The old parts fall away, and become nourishment for the future. May's Full Moon in Scorpio on the 10th was big, deep, and emotionally challenging. But we came out of it with even more self-awareness, and growth. There are many tensions to square off with during the month, issues to face, and experiences to make us stronger, and  more clear about who we are. The Sun will move to Gemini on May 20. The New Moon in Gemini will be May 25. We must stay aware, resist the lure of distraction, and take responsibility for our consciousness and our actions. Click on the title for more details.
  • 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.
