Aries Descends in Cancer

this month. I say descends because I picture Aries holding its nose and saying, “OK let me get this over with.” Aries is fire, passion, even aggression and anger if taken to extremes. It is not particularly comfortable in the cool and calm Cancer. Use this short stay, however, to analyze how you can cool your anger – how can you redirect? Is the full frontal attack of Aries always the right way to go? Aries doesn’t like to calm down – but sometimes, it is a good thing to do! Breathe!

Moon To Close to Pluto?

Feeling lacking in the “spring joy?” Feeling a little cranky? Well, if you have a Moon in Aquarius or other “personal” – Sun, rising sign or Mercury dominated by Aquarius or Uranus, you are really feeling the impact of Pluto “kissing” the Moon. The Moon has just tipped into Aquarius which can be an unsettling as this is typified by electric and quirky energy. Right now, the orbits of the Moon and Pluto are in conjunction or close to one another. Pluto is also unsettling but in a different way. It demands that we change – that we dig deep

Review:

“Journaling Power: How to Create the Happy, Healthy Life You Want to Live” Mari L. McCarthy It is a temptation when one is reading a book such as this, to “cut to the chase.” Often, we want to get to the part that will start making our life more rewarding. I urge all readers to this wonderful book to resist that urge. Don’t miss Mari’s story of how the discovery of her multiple sclerosis and the subsequent search for the ultimate doctor or pill made her realize that her healer lay within. Not only is it a gripping tale, sans

Not One Planet in Retrograde!

It is a rare occurrence when no planets are in retrograde. Less than one percent of the world’s population is born when all planets are moving direct. Right now (except for a pesky retrograde of the asteroid Vesta) all planets are in “forward motion” What can you do about that? Make new plans and gather new ideas. Now is not the time to go inward and contemplate a planet’s energy (unless your chart is heavily influenced by Vesta — Sun, Ascendant, Node.) Think spring think making planting new ground — think forward movement! Where have you been stuck and now

Sun Conjunct Lillith

The Black Moon Lillith is one of the coolest aspects of Astrology. It represents our deepest, one might say most primitive of emotions. In some versions of the Hebrew Bible, Lillith was intended to be the mate of Adam. However, she had a different idea of how her life should be – there was none of this, “helpmate” nonsense in her lexicon. She rebelled and was often cast as a “fallen or evil women.” She certainly did not have the virtues so treasured in Eve. Lillith, in our birth charts represents our wild side – what we bury and repress

This is Fake News: the Seven Planets in Aquarius

You might have seen some rather austere looking web entries saying that in February we will have 7 planets in Aquarius! It then goes on to say the last time this happened was during the plague in the Middle Ages and it saw the end of the Great Plague and the start of the Renaissance. Sounds great, right? One problem, it is a pile of wrong. While it is rare to have that many signs in Aquarius, it happened as recently as February 1962. The Cuban Missile Crises happened that fall. So while it is good while it lasts, don’t

Mercury Retrograde – 2021

On January 30, 2021 we will see our first Mercury retrograde. This Mercury’s retrograde is in independent, free thinking, illusive and quirky Aquarius. Ruled by Uranus, this is the sign that focuses us on collective efforts to work together for the greater good of society. Keep in mind though that the definition of “greater good” is very open to interpretation!! We saw many people on January 6 convinced they had to storm the Capitol for their version of the “greater good.” How we socialize – not for a quick drink – but how we gather with people to further the

Kamala Harris

There are many interesting things about this chart which I will explore as we go forth. Today, I want to explore the commonality she has with Donald Trump. Yes, I said that. Both Harris and Trump share a South Node in Sagittarius. His is in the 4th house – hence his attachment to his family – hers is in 7 – making her a more socialized person. People going from Sagittarius South are going to a Gemini North Node. Their major lesson to learn is to give up the fact that they know they are the smartest kid in the

Inauguration Day

We are all shellshocked from the attempted insurrection of Jan 6, 2021. Many have asked about the astrology of Inauguration Day. Well, the good news we have a very strong Aquarian presence in the 10th house. This is the house of government and authority and we can see this fresh air of Aquarius blowing through that house. The one sign of trouble still resides in Mars and Uranus. They will still be in a very tight conjunction – 6 degrees Taurus and tucked away in the 12th house, which the ancients saw as a house of secret enemies. Mars is

Not a Good Idea To Go Into DC this week.

January 6, 2021 – the date of the big “stop the steal” or whatever it is being called now, march in Washington, DC. As you can see Mars and Uranus are very close to one another in the second house – that of values! They are out of sign (meaning one is in Aries and one in Taurus) but they are too close for comfort for me. Mars is the god of War and Uranus, trickster and quixotic, likes nothing more to throw a match on a tinder. The Saturn/Jupiter conjunction in the 11th house – that which brings people
