Don’t Discount the Moon

Most astrologers don’t pay enough time exploring the Moon. It moves so fast that it often gets lost in the shuffle of the dynamos like Jupiter and Pluto. However, this little speed demon does influence our moods. Today and tomorrow the Moon will be finishing a trip through Scorpio. Having a Scorpio Sun, I can feel the “spookiness” of Scorpio – I feel a bit paranoid – looking for a shoe some shoe that must be dropping someplace. The same can be said for someone with a Scorpio Moon or Scorpio rising – the extra dose of Scorpio on our

Get Comfortable with Scorpio/Pluto and Change

I have been riffing a lot on Pluto and his relentless desire for change. Now is the time to use that energy to suit your needs and the change you want to make in your life. April 29, 2018 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern time will be the height of a Scorpio Full Moon. This one will really pack a punch because of the simultaneous conjunction between Mars and Pluto, the traditional and modern rulers of Scorpio. A Mars/Pluto conjunction at any time is a powerful combination of the warrior and the changer – it is almost as though

Are You Ready for the Chiron Aries Challenge?

In our charts Chiron indicates a deep wound that haunts us. Chiron produces sensations of disjointedness and a disconnection. When Chiron moves into Aries on April 17 be prepared to face issues of your basic vitality and direction. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and has domain over our personality, drive, ambition and aggression. When the “master of pain and uncertainty” arrives there you can imagine the internal turmoil he can bring. Look for concerns around: Self direction Life planning Anger suppression General vitality.

Full Virgo Moon – March 1 – Are You a Willing Victim?

March first will bring a full Moon.  The Native Americans called the full Moon of March the Worm Moon because the worms begin to push out through the Earth when it appeared. Because we will have another full Moon later in the month, March is another Blue Moon month. The Moon will be in Virgo during this Worm Moon. Be on the lookout for feelings of victimization bubbling up. I call Virgo the Cinderella of the zodiac. She is always sitting by the fireplace making everyone else pretty for the ball but never thinks she can go. Virgo often considers

A Blue Moon Super Moon Eclipse on Wednesday The Moon Hugs Ceres – a Female Super Blue Moon

If you love the Moon, mark your calendar for January 31 when (if you are in North America or Hawaii) you will see a blue Moon lunar eclipse just before sunrise. Blue Moons occur when we have two full moons in one calendar month. There will be another in March. The lunar eclipse will be total meaning that the Moon will be completely in the shadow of the Earth for a bit more than an hour. This is not, as you might have heard on social media, the first Blue Moon total eclipse in 150, just that it is the

Mars in Sagittarius – No Time for Excuses

Are you slowing down on your New Year’s resolutions? Well, be prepared to fire up again as warrior Mars moves in a fellow fire sign, Sagittarius. This is a very restless, adventurous and physical placement because we are combining the wanderlust of Sagittarius with the drive and energy of Mars. Winter might be the time of hibernating and binge watching or reading but think of this transit as your own personal January thaw. Mars makes the move on January 26 so you have some time to plan your project and make your attack plans. The old file cabinet or pile
