  • 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!

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.

  • October may have started with outer directed cardinal energy, lots of enthusiasm and excitement, but gradually shifts to a slower, more inner directed time of reflection. Mercury stations retrograde early in the month, on October 4, and remains retrograde until October 25. There is an emphasis on relationship during October, with lots of Libran energy, and Venus remaining conjunct the Sun throughout the month. There is a Lunar Ecllipse on the Full Moon in Aries on October 8, and a Solar Eclipse at the New Moon in Scorpio on October 23. For more details, click on the title.
  • September is a process of shifting from the past to the future, making a leap of consciousness between the month's start and its finish. We open with Mars and Saturn conjunction, accompanied by frustration, questioning and doubt. But as we proceed to allow old patterns to be released, we can take advantage of the aspects of the later part of the month. We not only have firey trines, we have the Fall Equinox, a Libra New Moon, and Venus shifting into her own sign of Libra. Click on the title to read more!
  • August begins with complex energies, not in particular harmony with each other. There is potential for creativity, but demands for discrimination, dealing with stress, facing the truth.

The Uranus/Pluto square is still in play. There's a Full Moon in Aquarius, a New Moon in Virgo! Click on the title to read the details!
  • As July comes, we are ready for less intensity, and we get it! Nevertheless, there is still the work of integrating all the big changes that came at us in past few months. Mercury goes direct almost immediately. Other astrological aspects cooperate, but don't let us off the hook entirely! Saturn and Uranus are in a quincunx aspect all month and we explore what that means. July's Full Moon in Capricorn arrives July 12. Then planets start changing signs. Mercury to Cancer, Jupiter to Leo, Venus to Cancer, Sun to Leo, Mars to Scorpio. Saturn stations direct and Uranus stations retrograde. The New Moon in Leo comes on July 26, conjunct Jupiter and square Mars. Venus opposes Pluto at the end of the month, and Mars squares Jupiter. Read the details by clicking on the title.
