  • Themes of past months mix with a Saturn/Neptune square to thoroughly perplex us this November. Yet, we're used to November being the time of deeply feeling Scorpio, so we're not taken totally aback. It is just that the complexity of aspects forces us to prepare for the unexpected, be self-observant, patient, and hopefully transformed by month's end. The intense involvement of Chiron in Pisces requires us to address feelings of woundedness throughout the month. The New Moon in Scorpio came on November 11 and the Full Moon in Gemini arrives November 25. The exact square of Saturn and Neptune arrives November 26. Click on the title for the full details.
  • October has us dealing with strong Neptune energies, despite personal planets in Virgo and Libra! Thus we reach for clarity, while wading in pools of mystery. There was a strong New Moon in Libra on October 12, which has us striving for peace, but realizing there are many points of view which must be considered before agreement can be reached. The strong Virgo energies may have us working hard, willing to take action, but finding a need to stop and check in with our heart space, on a regular basis, to be sure we are on the right path. A Taurus Full Moon comes near the end of the month on the 27th, just before Halloween! Have en enjoyable All Hallow's Eve. Click on the title to get more details for October.
  • September is a very busy month astrologically, with Venus going direct, Saturn changing signs, a partial solar eclipse at the New Moon in Virgo, a total lunar eclipse at the Full Moon in Aries, plus the Fall Equinox to name a few important events. There is a strong Neptune quality throughout the month, often opposing the planets in Virgo. All of these energetic qualities are asking each of us to find balance, but it won't be easy.

  • Venus retrograde takes center stage in August, asking us to become more true to ourselves and less reliant on conditioned beliefs. An emphasis in Leo energy asks us to indulge in creativity. Saturn stations direct on August 1, Jupiter changes signs, entering Virgo. We have Mercury entering its own sign of Virgo, opposing Neptune, and later opposing Chiron. There is a New Moon in Leo, and then the Sun squaring Saturn. We have nearly a week with no planets in air, until Mercury enters Libra. The final weekend gives a Full Moon in Pisces, and the capacity for more loving and compassionate relationships. Do click on the link for more details.
  • July begins with a Full Moon in Capricorn and ends with a Full Moon in Aquarius! In between, we have complex sets of aspects, a New Moon in Cancer, and Venus starting a retrograde period. Early days of the month we gaze at the evening sky in awe as Venus and Jupiter are conjunct as evening stars! We need this bit of beauty, for the complicated feelings and urges we will experience through the remainder of the month require diligence, patience, and strength to come out the other side with a sense of success.

  • Mercury definitely takes center stage during much of June! It is retrograde to start the month, in its own sign of Gemini, stations direct on the 11th, but remains in its shadow until June 26. It is also square Neptune for much of the month, forcing us to walk the line between the rational and the more liminal. We had a Full Moon in Sagittarius on June 2, and a New Moon in Gemini on June 16! Venus moves into Leo on June 5, and builds to a conjunction with Jupiter, while Jupiter remains trine to Uranus in Aries for the entire month. Saturn, after six months in Sagittarius, slips back into Scorpio for the summer. Mars stays conjunct the Sun in Gemini until the Summer Solstice on June 21, when the Sun shifts into Cancer for the summer, and Mars follows suit on the 24th.

  • The month of May continues the drama of the Uranus/Pluto square, though its power is waning. The first May weekend brought an emotionally deep Full Moon in Scorpio whose influence shines through most of the month. Neptune is strong  for the entire month, aspecting Mercury, Venus, Mars, and the Sun, and having us struggle to stay focused. Jupiter and Uranus stay trined for the month. There's a New Moon in Taurus on the 17th, just a day ahead of Mercury stationing retrograde in Gemini. By the last week, we have Sun, Mars and retrograde Mercury conjunct in Gemini!

  • April may start with Fool's Day, but this April will not remain foolish. The powerful dynamics of the Uranus/Pluto square and solar eclipse follow us from last month, but the influence of Taurus from the outset of April has us more deliberate and grounded during April. There's Full Moon in Libra on April 4, topped off with a total eciipse of the Moon, requiring us to find balance between our own needs and those of others. Jupiter stations direct in Leo. Saturn weighs in, as does Neptune, this month, via T-squares and Grand Trines. There's a New Moon in Aries on April 18! Click on the title for all the details!
  • March holds an amazing array of astronomical and astrological phenomena! From a Total Solar Eclipse on the same day as the Vernal Equinox to the final exact waxing square of Uranus and Pluto, March will keep us on our toes! It can be exciting, confusing, inspiring! This is a time of evolution and transformation, for us as individuals, and for our world! Live every minute to its fullest! Click on the title for the full story!
  • February comes in complicated and ends the same way, with themes of change, heal and release the past.  In between we have a soulful Full Moon in Leo on the 3rd, and a retrograde Mercury in Aquarius stationing direct on the 11th. The New Moon in the last minute of Aquarius on the 18th is the second New Moon in Aquarius in 2015, a rare phenomenon! Then things shift to Pisces where, for a few days, we have a 7-planet stellium! Within two days after that, the Moon, Venus and Mars join Uranus in Aries to form a stellium in Aries! Flowing Piscean energy moving to charge-ahead Aries energy! Confusing? Yes. To complicate the end of the month, we'll have Mars and Venus conjunct in Mars' sign of Aries to stir up relationship issues. Mercury will be opposing Jupiter while the Sun conjuncts Neptune.
