Saturn Finally Stations Direct From Retrograde – Are You in Control?

Saturn leaves the last retrograded position while in Sagittarius on August 25 and marches directly into Capricorn. While in Sagittarius, Saturn challenged our ideas of religion, spirit and philosophy.  Because he demands order and structure – Saturn has been asking us to codify our beliefs and put them into action. When in Capricorn, the sign ruled by Saturn – the challenge will be to understand better how you work in linear space and time and with authority figures. Also, learn how much control you have over yourself and your life. To me that is a big topic that people ignore.

Mercury in Retrograde in Virgo!

OK all of you Mercury Retrograde lovers this is your chance! The planet has just retrograded in the constellation of Virgo. Now this is an interesting combination. Mercury, of course, is the communicator – the ancient messenger from the gods. Virgo can be quite reticent. Virgo does go for “blab and show.” What better time to assess words that don’t need to be sent? What better time to check your words before you send them out into the universe? Apply the Virgo precise analysis  to the words you are about to say and see if you will regret them once

Ready for the Lunar Eclipse Today?

Find you Moon!  We are hearing so much about the solar eclipse happening later this month that some are forgetting about the lunar eclipse occurring on August 7.  This is an Aquarius eclipse – the sign of innovation, rebellion, hyper-intelligence and originality. Where the eclipse occurs in your chart is a terrific place to re-invent and revive your emotional responses to life! Because Neptune and Pluto will be intersecting the path of the eclipse this would be a perfect time to assess the emotional responses you are (or not having) toward your spiritual practices. Are you just going through the

Venus Opposes Saturn: Time to Play?

Venus is in Gemini right now and making an opposition to retrograded Saturn. All this happens when Mercury goes retrograde. Venus with Saturn often gets a bad reputation because of the restrictive aspects of Saturn. The standard interpretation is one of restriction in the areas of love, sex and money. However, it is better to look at this as a time of re-assessment. Venus is in the sign of Mercury and Mercury, like Saturn, is in retrograde. This is definitely a time to evaluate your communication skills and perhaps have the “difficult conversation” with loved ones about finances and romance.

Vesta Enters Virgo Today

Virgo is Vesta’s happy place. Most modern astrologers give rulership of Virgo to the asteroid Vesta. This transit is all about devotion to duty. Vesta’s domain was hearth and home, similar to the Greek Hestia. She kept the fires of the temple burning and was dutiful, almost narrow minded in her task.  ” Virgo and Vesta have general domain over the body – how we feed, care and work the body – our health and our work habits. Even if you do not have much Virgo influence in your chart, this would be a good time to run a “check-up”

Are Your Ready to Grab the Energy of the Solar Eclipse?

The total solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 will streak directly across the United States. An eclipse always portends great change but the effects do not hit like a cyclone. They are, however, like ripples on an ocean, gradually forcing changes as they slowly spread. The idea that an eclipse is some sort of cosmic thunderclap is misguided. You won’t suddenly receive and infusion of solar energy the moment it begins. Still, we cannot deny the stunning transformation and even upheaval caused by a solar eclipse. An eclipse amplifies the energy of the planets in its path for a period

When Sessions Testifies: Mercury Trines Neptune

How appropriate! Just when Jeff Sessions goes before Congress to answer questions about the on-going Russian hearings, we have Mercury, the communicator trining or in harmony with Neptune, the dreamy obfuscator! Mercury is in the constellation it rules, Gemini, thus making her very powerful – and Neptune is in its “home” of Pisces. Mercury is the fleet footed creature who carries the messages from the gods and rules all forms of communication. Pisces, is the spiritual dreamer who would rather live in a perfect, non-physical world than clunky old reality. You can see how this can lead to prevarication in

Jupiter Turns Direct On June 9 When the Moon is “Full” in Sagitarrius

For those of you who love retrogrades – and you know who you are – you have just a few more days of Jupiter in this position. Seriously, retrogrades are great times to work on the energy not only of the planet but of the constellation it is stutter-stepping in during the retrograde.     Jupiter turned retrograde back in February in Libra, ruled by Venus, the sign of relationships both romantic and financial. Of course, Jupiter is our largest planet and urges to explore the world, indeed, the universe.  The last thing Jupiter wants is restriction and confinement. This retrograde period is perfect

Are You Honestly Ready for the Sagittarius Full Moon?

I use the word honestly because it is near and dear to the heart of a Sagittarius. Never ask a Sag. if a dress makes you look fat because they will tell you, in spades and double-downed.  This full Moon is on the Sagittarius-Gemini or information axis. Gemini likes to gather data and disseminate it as quickly as possible. Sagittarius prefers to ruminate on each topic and get to know every single detail. What do you do when we have a Full Moon on this axis? Evaluate how we absorb information, of course! Here are some prompts to think about

This is Not Watergate

History repeats itself but never in same way. While it is easy to draw similarities with our last Constitutional crises, Watergate, the Trump related problems are vastly different, politically and astrologically. Watergate was an abuse of power by a paranoid man and his henchmen. This is the possible collusion with a foreign power by a presidential candidate and then president and his men. Watergate happened during the last of a series of Pluto/Saturn/Jupiter squares that characterized the previous decade. While we have come off similar series of squares, the energy now is deeper and more karmic. I have stated in
