A Solar Eclipse this Week

Today we have a solar eclipse in Cancer which would normally not make a ripple in our cosmic awareness. However, this is happening in direct opposition to our retrograded Saturn and Pluto that are sitting on the South Node. Those three powerhouses, now in Capricorn, put out enough energy demanding that we slow down, analyze and do some inner work surrounding self-authority and power. With the eclipsing of the Sun in opposition it is a great time to literally shed light on issues of emotion (Cancer) vs. authority (Capricorn). One good task would be to see where your emotions are

Venus Squaring Neptune

This can create a problem between your dreams (Neptune) and financial reality (Venus). You may have to make some cold, hard decisions or realize that you have been limiting yourself by thinking you don’t have enough to take that leap. Evaluate, adjust upwards and downwards as you need – and thank Venus for bringing some reality into your life.

It Isn’t a Paper Moon, It is a Sag. Moon

Time to prepare for the Sagittarius full Moon. This is a time that always brings to mind a very noisy dinner party. With the Moon full in Sag. it must be opposite the Gemini Sun, making this a time of constant exchange of ideas. With the full Moon, everything is “out there” – nothing hidden – so I just see a table full of people trying to get the other person to listen – just listen for one minute – what they have to say. Since they all think they are right, it can get rather loud! So where are

Uranus and Vesta in Taurus – containing the trickster.

Uranus is the trickster of the zodiac. He loves nothing more than to stir things up and then go on his merry way leaving you to figure out the meaning of the turmoil. Often there is gift hidden in the dust but it takesa good deal of introspection to find the lesson and the meaning. Vesta is female warrior energy giving a strong focus on a goal.  One thing Taurus dislikes is either turmoil or intensity so when these two join there it is bound to cause consternation. This would not be the time to make financial risks- especially if

Time to Take Your Heart Seriously

Venus is resting in one of the two signs she rules, Taurus. Those with a strong Venus/Taurus influence will feel a surge of romantic and creative interests as well as a concern for your financial future. (Venus does rule the purse-strings, you know.) However, a flowing trine to Neptune can bring a sense of unreality to these dealings. This is NOT the time to jump into premature relationships or gamble on your earnings. This IS the time to see where you are not being real about these things – what are you hiding under the rug? What are you afraid

Mercury Facing Off with Neptune

Mercury is now at home in Gemini. This enhances rational thinking and learning. However, today it starts to square off with Neptune. Where Mercury is rational, Neptune is fuzzy and Quixotic. How do they get along? Not usually well. The combination can raise issues of prevarication- whether we lie to others or lie to ourselves- we have to face those issues. It is a great time to determine how truthful you are to yourself…and how honest those closest to you are to you. In short – where do your secrets lie?

Uranus Shaking Up Taurus.

The Sun and Mercury are in Taurus for a short time. However, I want to talk about big, slow and “far-out” in so many ways Uranus being there. While Taurus screams security and safety – Uranus wants to send electrical bolts of change to everything it sees. How do the two combine? At its worse, this combination will shake to the core, “little things” like financial markets, 401 ks, home prices – all of those areas controlled by Taurus. However, it can also juice up our creative skills – and invite those home-projects such as cleaning clutter and changing old,

Are you looking for some inspiration?

Then perhaps you should wait until Wednesday to get creative, especially if your Moon is in a water sign. On Wednesday the Moon will move in it’s ruler, watery Cancer. It will also make a flowing aspect to the Mercury-Uranus conjunction that will hang around for a few more weeks. Water signs are good conduits for inspiration and ideas. Mercury, the communicator, gets an extra jolt of electricity or spark from Uranus. All together they will help you get the mental sparks flying.

Saturn Turns Retrograde

Saturn, the ruler of time, authority, duty and discipline turns retrograde this week. It does sit sitting very close to the equally karmic South Node. The South Node is your comfort zone- where the universe wants you to leave, grow and move on. Unfortunately, it is where we usually hate to leave – creatures of comfort and routine you know. If you are resisting taking authority over your actions, if you are trying to hide from duty and responsibility you will feel this retrograde. This is not a good time for Peter Pans! However, if you are ready to be

What Does Venus Have to Do with April Fools?

The Roman’s dedicated the month of Venus. Veneralia was the first day of the month in the Roman calendar. The first day of her month was a day of celebration and games when the Roman’s tasted the first fruits of spring. Men would wear women’s clothing, women would remove their jewels and adornments. All would jump into the men’s pools together and….frolic. It was a fine day to wear masks, play tricks and just get a good case of spring fever. Throughout time, this evolved into a day April Fools Day. Frankly, I think the Romans had more fun!
