  • August starts out with a Full Moon in Aquarius, then sees Mercury go direct on the 8th. Venus moves into Cancer and then forms a T-square with Pluto and Uranus, shaking our sense of safety and security mid-month. Then we have a Full Moon in Leo, and Mars conjunct Saturn in Libra. In the third week the Moon and Venus form a Cardinal Grand Cross with Pluto and Uranus, giving us more fodder for making changes in relationships. Then the Sun moves into Virgo and opposes Neptune in Pisces. Confused? or inspired? We also have Mars move into Scorpio and then a second Full Moon, a Blue Moon, this one in Pisces. Just before the month ends, Mercury moves into Virgo. See what all this could mean for you by clicking on the title!
  • Undercurrents of tension and conflict make the final days of summer less than joyful, but we can use the energy of Virgo to be discerning, and be willing to make improvements. A Mars square Saturn aspect brings frustration but perhaps a willingness to look closely at our behavior, and challlenge ourselves as to what is the best path in which to move toward the future. We'll have the compassion of Jupiter in Cancer, the humility of a New Moon in Virgo, the Moon's Nodes with lots of important aspects. The Full Moon in Pisces on the 19th has hardly off our plate when Pluto stations direct on the 20th, and then the Fall Equinox arrives on September 22 as the Sun moves into Libra. Lots to be aware of this month in order to say grounded and poised. Click on the title to read more.
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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!

  • We see enormous climate devastation affect millions of people as September begins. Is this the harvest from denying what climate scientists have been telling us for years now? Might that be part of the message of what the recent total solar eclipse, called the "American" eclipse, has to tell us? This month is complicated, and there is a need for taking on much of the positive Virgo energy and qualities to deal with it successfully. Click on the title to read the details.
  • August is a month filled with multiple retrograde planets, challenging aspects, and the third eclipse in a lunar month. The New Moon in Leo had the ecllipse and was the focal point of a yod with Pluto and Neptune. The Full Moon is in Pisces late in the month. Several significant aspects remain in orb the entire month, including Mars square Uranus, Saturn trine Uranus, and Jupiter trine Neptune.  Mercury stations direct on August 18. Mars finally stations direct after a 2-month retrograde on August 27. Click on the title for details.
