Venus Expands Thanks to Jupiter

If you are looking for some joy and hope in the middle of the winter and “shutdown” doldrums, look toward Venus. Venus is in Sagittarius, the sign ruled by Jupiter, while she is making a positive aspect to Jupiter. Sag. and Jupiter are all about outward movement and growth. They are the masters of exuberance, optimism and new experiences. When coupled with the goddess of love (Venus) they will give us the desire to be bold, explore new relationships – believe in ourselves. Venus also rules money so be sure that you do go too overboard with throwing your money

Full Lunar Eclipse in Leo

January 20 will see a full lunar eclipse in volatile Leo. The Sun will be in the opposite sign of Aquarius placing the emphasis of this event on moving our dreams from our heads (Aquarius) and into our hearts (Leo.) There are several planets in fire during the this time. Mars and Uranus are in Aries – a potential danger zone – and Venus and Jupiter in Sagittarius. For those prone to insisting they are always right and always ready to fight, this will, unfortunately, reinforce those beliefs. For those willing to learn and grow – it is a time

Solstice Week

The Sun enters Capricorn this week making a square or disharmonious aspect to Chiron, the keeper of our inner wounds.  So as we enter this darkest day of the year – take a minute to flesh out your deepest wounds and make a plan to toss them to the light as it returns. There is no more perfect time to get out of the “old gunk” of past hurts and face the new year with a fresh start and lightened load!

Time to Heal the Past

Mars and Neptune in conjunction in the karmic sign of Pisces this is a good time to end the year by revisiting past hurts. Pisces gives you the ability to see your pain in the bigger picture without the need to seek revenge. Just watch that you don’t go into victim mode.  Mars is anger and pain – and Neptune brings is in touch with karma and the universal source. So what better time, especially before the end of the year, to work on those who have hurt you – and those you have hurt — and try to find

Mercury and Chiron Go Direct this Week

In addition, they make a trine or flowing aspect this week. There are no more excuses, you have had time to ruminate of your hurt feelings (Chiron) and figure out the best way to speak about the issue (Mercury) while they were in retrograde. Now you have to air your deepest wounds in a constructive and honorable fashion. You have no excuse to keep stewing and being passive-aggressive. Both of these planets have a lot of Sagittarius energy around them now – that is a straight shooting as it gets. Make your New Year’s resolutions early. The old saying is,

The Dance of Mercury and Jupiter

Now that Mercury has gone retrograde in Sagittarius she will be dancing closely with Jupiter that has just moved into that sign. Around the time of the winter solstice, they will be in a tight conjunction. Mercury like Sagittarius and it’s ruler, Jupiter, is all about communications. Indeed, this can be a very chatty holiday season for better or worse. The worse would be everyone digging deep inside to air EVERY single issue they have against EVERY family member from the beginning of their time on Earth! The better would be to inwardly assess both sides of the communications issues

Jupiter Goes Home to Sagittarius.

On November 8 Jupiter returned home to the constellation it feels most at home, Sagittarius. It takes Jupiter twelve years to go around the zodiac so it remains in a constellation just about a year. For those with strong Jupiter/Sagittarius influence in their charts – Sun, Moon, ascendant – it is a time for growth, learning and reaching higher levels. Jupiter is constantly pushing us to go beyond boundaries – to see what is on the other side of fence. Set your goals for what you wish to overcome! However, Jupiter is sometimes too big, too ambitious – and can

Are we Listening to Pluto?

It is Election Day – with Venus and Uranus in retrograde and our country in Pluto return. Will we allow the forces that are loose in  public – forces of homophobia, misogyny and white nationalism to reign free or will we stand up and say NO! Will women reach deep and say ENOUGH? Pluto puts them front and center – it is up to us to clear it out — or live with the consequences.
