Planetary news this week! Astrological forecast for May 20-27, 2019

By |2019-05-20T08:37:38-04:00May 20th, 2019|Planetary news this week|

As this week begins, we are coming off the powerful Scorpio Full Moon and sliding right into Gemini season.  The Sun and Mercury both move into Gemini on the 21st.  Gemini is ruled by Mercury, so the Sun being in Gemini, ruled by Mercury, and conjoining Mercury is an astrological Double Whammy telling us that this is a very mental time – full of curiosity and anticipation and lots of ideas floating around, looking for a place to land.  The Gemini influence can be a great aid in moving through things quickly.

Mars (assertive energy) is in Cancer, super sensitive and perhaps a bit touchy, approaching a challenging square to Chiron which will poke us in uncomfortable places and stimulate urges to react and perhaps lash out if we feel threatened.  This discomfort is annoying to be sure, but also provides us with an opportunity to discover where we still have reactive wounds that perhaps are ready to emerge for healing.  Under this influence it will be helpful to try to avoid blame and focus instead on looking inwards at the emotion itself.  Emotions and feelings are energies – they can be dispelled on an energetic level through breath and opening the heart.   This challenging dynamic will peak on the 23rd and then will begin to dissipate, but it is made easier by a harmonious aspect between Mars and Uranus (sextile aspect).

The energy of Mars harmonizes nicely with the tendency of Uranus to bring in radical change and new ideas.  Under Mars and Uranus it becomes easier to let go of old thought patterns to which we are overly attached, and to embrace new ways of seeing our world and our experiences.  […]

Who is Alexandria Ocasio Cortez? The astrological profile

This was originally posted in January 2019 but has been updated to reflect the availability of her birth time.  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was recently elected to the US House of Representatives from the 14th District of New York – the youngest woman ever to be elected to Congress.  Not only that, she is in the middle of her first Saturn Return.

The Saturn Return happens to each of us every 28-30 years when Saturn, traveling through its orbit around the Sun, returns to the degree of the sign that it holds in our natal astrological chart.  Because Saturn represents the virtues of hard work and achievement as well as the distress of tests and challenges, the Saturn Return is an important time and one in which we are often tested with experiences that may feel outside of our control.  But the Saturn Return can also be a time of great achievement and growth.  This is the period during which we realize that we have to grow up and start adulting, and this process is more comfortable for some than for others.  Some individuals find this too difficult, flaming out in their careers and shifting to another path, while some begin to achieve success during this time.

Recently I wrote about this crop of Saturn Return people who were born during the early 1990s when Uranus, Saturn and Neptune were all conjunct in Capricorn.  Here is an important takeaway from that article:

These periods can be very difficult, but for Saturn/Capricorn people they have the potential to be life changing in highly beneficial ways.  Many of the Capricorn stellium people, with the dreamy genius of Uranus/Neptune in their charts, have had difficulty coming to terms with the duality in their personalities between the creative inspiration of […]

Astrological forecast for the week of March 25, 2019, including Saturn/Pluto

By |2019-03-25T11:24:03-04:00March 25th, 2019|Uncategorized|

There’s been a lot of action in the astrological skies lately:  Uranus shifting back into Taurus, Chiron moving back into Aries, and a SuperMoon at the Equinox.  Things are settling down some, but the news is not all good because Saturn and Pluto are at the closest point to a conjunction as they will be until they meet next year.

Saturn (tests and challenges) and Pluto (creative destruction) are both in Capricorn and will collide in January of 2020.  The combination of these two planets generally denotes a destructive force that can clear the path of any debris that is interfering with the natural movement of the Universe towards balance.  This has the potential to be a positive force, but it is also associated with contraction and challenge, especially now since both planets are in the contracting sign of Capricorn. Saturn and Pluto will not reach the full conjunction this year, but between the end of March and the end of June they will be close enough that we will begin to feel the belt tightening.  This is not a time for risk taking, especially if your own chart is affected, and we will likely see a recession occur during the summer in the financial markets.

Mercury (mind and communication) is retrograde in the mystical sign of Pisces right now, and on the 25th Mercury aligns with Neptune, the modern ruler of Pisces, to open up the higher creative and inspirational centers.  This alignment will continue a bit after Mercury turns direct, until about April 4th.  The next week is perfect for creative endeavors and anything requiring imagination or spiritual exploration.  It is less excellent for business ventures or making decisions that require a practical and grounded approach, especially with Saturn […]

Planetary news this week! January 21, 2019

By |2019-01-22T06:48:36-04:00January 21st, 2019|Planetary news this week|

January horoscopesOn the heels of a Full Moon, Supermoon and lunar eclipse last night, the Moon continues to move through Leo where it helps to expand our hearts and find our inner enthusiasm.  Meanwhile Mars (assertive energy) is nearing the midpoint of its trip to Aries, but a challenge from Saturn could cause some trouble over the next few days as our enthusiasm and motivation (Mars) is stressed by Saturn’s restrictions and a sense of limitation.  This is a good time to proceed slowly towards perfection rather than run impulsively into the fire of our desire (wait a minute, that is poetry!).

Venus (love and beauty) aligns with bountiful Jupiter over the next few days, and both planets are in the optimistic sign of Sagittarius.  Optimism and faith abounds now, but that pesky Saturn influence may put the kibosh on plans temporarily.

Between the 22nd and 24th Mercury is very active which will stimulate mental activity and enhance communication.  Mercury aligns with the South Node of the past on the 21st, turning our thoughts for a day or two to learn more about where we’ve come from so that we can better serve our future,  just before it moves into Aquarius on the 24th and aligns with the Sun.  When Mercury is in Aquarius, the sign of the scientist and wizard/inventor, our minds are just a bit sharper – reasoning takes precedence over raw emotion and we are able to think clearly and with innate wisdom.  There is not much water influence, other than Chiron and Neptune, and since water tends to enhance our connection to feelings and emotion we may find ourselves strongly oriented in the head and mental body.

Our drive and energy will find easier expression when Mars […]

Jupiter in Sagittarius: Prepare for adventure! November 2018 – December 2019

By |2019-02-03T08:48:54-04:00November 9th, 2018|Featured posts, Planetary cycles|

Jupiter in SagittariusJupiter left intense Scorpio for sunny Sagittarius on November 8, 2018, a planetary shift heralded around the world with the superlatives you would associate with a planet as big as Jupiter entering a sign as happy as Sagittarius.  Astrological headlines declare “Outgoing, lucky and limitless”; “the upgrade your life needs”; “Getting to Yes”; “taking you on a beautiful adventure.”   Everyone loves Jupiter, the planet of good fortune, luck and abundance.

Looking back to 2007

Because Jupiter rules Sagittarius its power to expand and open up new possibilities can operate unimpeded by other influences. Jupiter in Sagittarius seeks adventure, prosperity, faith and meaning in life. Jupiter generally takes a full year to go through each sign in the zodiac, and last traversed through Sagittarius in 2007.  At the time, Pluto (obsession, destruction, regeneration) was finishing its journey through Sagittarius where it had overseen an obsession with bigger houses, more money, self-help and a relentless optimism that took a dive when Pluto moved into Capricorn in 2008.  It’s difficult to separate the influence of Jupiter in Sagittarius that year from the Pluto problems, but one thing we know for sure is that every aspect of astrological archetypes has a dark side and a light one.  Saturn, that devil of hardship and difficult lessons, bestows strength and the ability to master the physical universe.  And Jupiter, the light of beneficence, can encourage so much faith and confidence that we don’t see the train coming as we veer off the track.

About Jupiter

Jupiter in the birthchart or by transit provides the impulse for us to grow and evolve. It is involved in the realm of faith and the search for meaning in life, and in doing so there is a bit of restlessness […]

Venus retrograde in Scorpio: October 5, 2018 – November 16, 2018

By |2018-10-01T10:28:32-04:00October 1st, 2018|Planetary cycles|

Venus retrograde.  Venus turns retrograde on October 5th and will be retrograde until November 16th, 2018.

Venus usually slips through our lives like a whisper, and we barely experience her fleeting transits. Her influence is usually soft and encouraging and I often say that we only really take notice when we experience discomfort of some kind. Even the challenging transits of Venus are benign, offering us only an opportunity to indulge in greater indulgence.  When Venus is retrograde, however, she moves more slowly and deliberately and her influence is therefore more powerful.  Planets are said to be traveling in retrograde motion when they appear to move backwards from our perspective on earth. During these times their influence causes us to look back instead of forward as we encounter the experiences of that planet.

Venus is famous for her influence on relationships. As the goddess of love and beauty, she bestows an attractive power and grace, but that attractive power draws more than love. It can also a magnet for financial wealth and personal possessions so in that way, Venus is said to rule our values and the things that we love as well as the people. Venus also rules our ability to love and relate to our self, and the kind of talents and personal resources that we possess as well as the material possessions.

Venus only turns retrograde every 18 months or so.  These are excellent times to reconnect with friends or loved ones from the past, or to repair relationships that have suffered.  These are not always the best times to begin new relationships, but that doesn’t mean you should shy away from meeting new people.  Often when Venus is retrograde we can learn a great […]

Planetary news this week and the Supreme Court

By |2018-09-25T09:04:08-04:00September 25th, 2018|Planetary news this week, Politics|

This week’s biggest news of course is the big Aries Full Moon that occurred on the 24th.  Not big as in Supermoon big, but big as in eight planets all linked together in a dance of high energy planetary juju.  The energy of Full Moons take about three days to culminate and then about three days to dissipate so we are still riding the waves of that explosion of energies.

In the US news, the disruption of the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is a classic manifestation of the energies of this Aries Full Moon.  Mercury in Libra, desiring fairness, was tightly aligned to both the Sun and Moon, as was Chiron which brought up old wounds of the past to be addressed and hopefully resolved.  Uranus did indeed foster a disruption of the status quo which was looking like a seamless nomination and confirmation process.

This week we have a triple conjunction of the South Node (events of the past) to Mars (assertion and need) that includes the Black Moon Lilith, a force of primal feminism and the astrological mascot of the MeToo movement.  Combined with the lingering energies of the Aries Full Moon, this planetary dynamic will remain in effect at least until Friday.  Since allegations of sexual assault (connected with the Black Moon Lilith) are involved, I suspect the Supreme Court nomination process will not be resolved and more Kavanaugh accusers will come forward during this period.

Venus is in Scorpio now too, encouraging intense and passionate interactions which could overpower the tendency of Mercury in Libra towards polite conflict resolution.

It will be an interesting week!

From the advice column: Why have the past few years been so hard?

By |2018-08-11T08:17:25-04:00August 11th, 2018|Advice|

astrological adviceQ:  

For the past 5 years, my life has had SO many problems – life and health.  Almost as if the Universe keeps saying – “But wait – am throwing THIS in your lifepath – let’s see how you handle this one.”

Financial (bankruptcy in 2013), relationships strains, and a lot of health issues/problems – 5 surgeries in different parts of my body in 5 years and just got thrown another two more that I will have to deal with in the very near future – (the plethora of medical expenses are greatly affecting our finances)  

I am a good person – caring, compassionate, helpful and kind; I take care of myself – exercise, eat right and organic, no drinking, drugs and a glass or two of red wine a week –

What is it in my chart that is causing all of this and when will this start easing up?  Or, am I instead of looking at my ‘golden years’ going be be looking at my ‘lead years’?


A:

Although you say that  things have been particularly difficult in the past five years, I suspect that your life has not been easy in general.  Your chart shows an optimistic ascendant and Moon, both in Sagittarius, but difficult Saturn is putting pressure on your Sun, and Pluto (intense transformation) is a part of that dynamic as well.   Saturn and Pluto are the astrological heavyweights, so when they both conflict with the Sun it generally suggests a life where things are difficult and intense, but also very transformative.

Saturn is the apex of a “Yod” – a “finger of fate” aspect in your chart, which echoes the importance of Saturn in the chart.  Saturn is a difficult ally – he puts obstacles […]
