  • The astrology of May is dominated by the Uranus/Pluto exact square. We are wanting to take action, but limited by self-doubt and the need for security. The fixed energy of Taurus has our feet on the ground but we are moving slowly, learning lessons about letting go of the past in order to move forward. We have two eclipses, a solar eclipse at the New Moon in Taurus May 9 and a lunar eclipse at the Full Moon in Sagittarius on May 24! The exact square of Uranus and Pluto comes on May 20, the same day the Sun moves into Gemini. Tensions are high, and the urge to break out and break through will be experienced by all.

  • April is spring! And spring is about rebirth, emergence, newness. The astrology of April reflects the pattern. Sounds great—all things new and lovely. But we forget that to have the new, we must also release the old, and that sometimes new ways of being, new behaviors, can be awkward at first. We are a work in progress. The astrology emphasizes taking action, making changes, moving forward. It is accompanied by frustration, impatience, and sometimes rash action that can later be regretted. Be kind to yourself in this time. Take a moment to tap in to the more subtle requests of your inner life. Click on the title to read more....
  • March may seem calm with so many planets in Pisces, but the inner work needs to be done, and the Piscean energy is there to assist, bringing compassion and forgiveness to the picture.

Soon the Spring Equinox brings the Sun to the Aries point, and Venus soon follows! The Full Moon in Libra opposes the Aries energy and squares Pluto, breaking up the calmness and creating intense need for action! March spring energy makes for a great time for inner changes brought to manifest in the outer world.
