Yes, you can still read the forecast! Here’s this week written post.
For you visual people, here’s a brief video. Please note that this video refers to the Virgo Full Moon Supermoon
The planets are pretty earthy right now which can help us to find our feet in the ever-changing unfolding of experiences of life. Not everyone loves the experience of stability and security and a realm of practicality where every decision matters, but as we cycle through the realms of intellect and thought (air), motivation and desire (fire), emotions and feelings (water) it’s helpful to have that earthy period to allow everything to settle and stabilize.
Mars (drive and motivation) just moved into Taurus last week and will be traveling through that sign until March 31st. In the security-oriented earthy sign of Taurus, Mars doesn’t like change and since Mercury will be turning retrograde in March, the upcoming weeks will not be the best times for big changes. In Taurus Mars encourages us to explore the pleasures of being in a body – sensuality, taste, living in nature, planting and nurturing the seeds of life.
We also have Venus (love and aesthetics) in another earth sign, Capricorn, until March 1st and for much of that time it will be interacting with Saturn, Capricorn’s ruler (a conjunction of Venus to Saturn culminates on the 18th). Formalizing our relationships, making commitments, spending time alone, saving our money and becoming more practical with finances and saving for the future – all of these trends occur under this planetary combination. As Venus moves closer to transformational Pluto on the 22nd we are likely to see all human interaction intensify and become more passionate and intense.
Chiron moves back into Aries on the 18th. Chiron first entered Aries in April of 2018, then retrograded back into Pisces in September. Because of Chiron’s elliptical orbit, it spends more time in Aries than in any other sign (and the second […]
I did a little video for the Full Moon which takes place on the morning of the 19th. I’ll include this information in Monday’s astrological update as well.
I just watched the documentary about fashion designer Alexander McQueen on Netflix and was struck by both his exceptional genius and his turbulent personal life and apparently fragile psyche.
McQueen was born on March 17, 1969. (Geeky astrological details: Astro.com has provided a birth time of 10:45 am but this is not an accurate birth time – apparently his mother is quoted as having said his time of birth was sometime between 9:30 and midnight. The ascendant is the most visible piece of an astrological chart since it reflects the persona and the style of living. 9:30 pm puts Libra on the ascendant which doesn’t really makes sense with the penchant McQueen seemed to have for digging up the dark underbelly of the psyche and expressing it through fashion. That is much more Scorpionic which would be reflected by a later birth time. A Libra ascendant would have been much more driven towards creating beautiful and harmonious art whereas McQueen sought to horrify and disquiet his audience. “I use things that people want to hide in their heads. War, religion, sex; things we all think about, but don’t bring to the forefront. But I do and I force them to watch it.”)

In any case, McQueen was born under the Pisces Sun, and his Moon was also in Pisces. This was not a New Moon since the Moon was slightly behind the Sun where it is in the balsamic, or Dark Moon phase – a closing of the karmic cycle that requires lessons to be learned and a type of completion. That this path was to be a difficult one is shown by the exact opposition of Pluto, planet of power and […]
