Fired Up!

Eclipse season is to astrologers what tax season is to accountants. There is a never-ending flow of stories highlighting the themes. The headlines now include relationships, values, and economic transformations. The opposition between balance-loving Venus and chain-breaker Uranus was a significant feature of the November 8 lunar eclipse. Venus rules partnerships, love, and desire. What dramatic entrances and exits did you experience? For myself, I canceled my subscription to Hulu because they raised the price yet again. With the Mars retrograde, I am reconsidering how I expended my energy and decided to pull back from an astrology group I was leading. Uranus brings surprises, and I was nominated for the International Society of Astrological Research (ISAR) board. This fantastic organization hosts conferences and provides weekly talks from noteworthy astrologers. If you are a member, please consider voting for me.

I am so proud of my fellow Americans. The Pluto return requires us to...

The Crescendo

The central theme of this fall's eclipse season is the transformation of love and business relationships. We walk through a door, and when we look behind us, there is a wall. This time brings fated turning points. The most sensational story is watching Kanye West torch his wealth and status with vitriolic commentary. He has Mercury, the planet of communication, on the feared" beheading" fixed star Algol. He has wielded his verbal sword for many years at other people. This time, it boomeranged and took him out. Transit Mars in Gemini, fighting words, is the drumbeat below his story. It entered the air sign back in August for an extended Gilligan's Island-style stay until March 2023. Mars energizes, stimulates, and motivates. It also cuts and severs.

Kanye is a Gemini Sun and a Pisces Moon. Geminis are here to communicate, Pisces to feel. At the highest level, the combination bestows an individual with the ability to express deep emotions poetically. Perfect for a world-renowned...

Into the Deep

It's time to plunge into the dark deep. Watery Scorpio's energy is intense, probing, and passionate. Traveling into the heart of darkness and investigating the shadows is the work. The sign rules sexuality, death, and taboo subjects. The Sun, Moon, and Venus intertwine their cosmic limbs at this amplified New Moon. Over the next month, people may fall in love or be stunned by betrayal. Expect lots of shocks and awe. For years I joked about desiring a meet-cute at the grocery store. Guess what I manifested last week! We shall see how this love story unfolds. 

Eclipses are a time of fated events. Our lives great beginnings and endings typically occur when they excite our natal chart. They are portals that pull us forward. We go through a door, and when we look behind us, there is a wall. You may already know your story, as events can occur weeks before the actual lunation. We need to clear space to allow a new beginning. Are you holding onto something that has passed its...

Raising Your Voice

Aries's pioneering, youthful and carefree nature is contagiously hopeful. This feisty and fiery energy leads us to take risks and challenge ourselves. The planet Mars which governs vitality, sexuality, drive, aggression, and anger, rules this sign. This annual lunation invites us to consider how we assert ourselves to meet our needs, especially in our primary relationships. If you let other people's perceptions stop you from conquering new worlds, do some reflection on why. What is driving you to make yourself small?

Evaluate how you react under stress because competition and conflicts will amplify when Mars in Gemini appears to dash backward through the zodiac. A retrograde planet has the potential to cause havoc. The topics it governs will experience delays, reversals, and unexpected returns to previous conditions. The retrograde period from October 30 to January 12 invites us to slow down and reset how we expend our energy.

A Precarious Balance

To the delight of astrology meme makers, Mercury is in Gatorade again! People are most familiar with scheduling mishaps, exes in the DMs, missed meetings, and broken electronics because the planet rules communication and transportation. During the retrograde transit, the winged messenger appears to stop and move backward. It is an optical illusion, but as above, so below.

Due to the retrograde, Mercury in Libra opposes amplifying Jupiter in Aries three times. Jupiter makes everything bigger, and it governs royalty, wealth, and religion. The biggest story is the death of Queen Elizabeth. Mercury, stationed on her part of fortune, conjunct the fixed star Diadem aka the Crown star. The world paused and looked backward to review her life. You can watch my YouTube video on the astrology of her death chart if you are interested in the fascinating timing of the event.

The other big story is the Ukraine war turning in favor of the Ukrainians when their offensive took back Northern...

Flights of Fantasy

Pisces is the zodiac's last sign, and its mutable watery energy contains all twelve zodiac signs. This mystical and otherworldly force may bring up desires to escape the practical realities of life. It is not a time to overthink; it's a time to feel and experience. Consider events this weekend where you can participate in silence. A long hike, bike ride, afternoon delight, music concert, or art museum are perfect choices.

This lunation activates lightning bolt Uranus and oceanic Neptune. Be prepared for surprises, unexpected disappearing acts, or revelations that things are not as they seemed. Pay attention to the weather as intense storms are possible. People are experiencing extreme weather across the world. I have my eye on Hurricane Earl. The current forecast spares the US east coast, but with Mercury in airy Libra stationing retrograde, we shall see. When planets station to go retrograde, reversals are possible. Review your emergency plan, fill your gas tank, and stock up on...

New Perspectives

The Mars, Uranus, and North Node pileup at 18º Taurus at the beginning of the month certainly delivered on its promise of surprising, chaotic, and impactful events. For some, the following week’s Mars t-bone into Saturn in Aquarius brought hardship, dealings with authorities, and other restrictions. Some of the notable news stories included: 

  • Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan instigated an international crisis.  
  • A series of earthquakes and a spectacular volcanic eruption in Iceland. 
  • Anne Heche died after her reckless driving led to a fiery crash into a woman’s home.  
  • The FBI searched Donald Trump’s residence to retrieve classified documents. The contents are rumored to include top secret information on the USA’s nuclear program. 
  • A nuclear fusion breakthrough was confirmed. It is a significant scientific advancement of Uranian proportions. 
  • President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act into law. It...

The Bright Side of Chaos

Astrology always astonishes me with the divine timing of events. I accepted an invitation to discuss how astrology can assist with understanding and managing grief a few months ago. Our conversation was this week. Bonnie Gonzalez is doing the work of the angels by helping people move through devastating losses. Her Facebook page is Your Doula for Grief. You can view our conversation here. 

The high road energy of Aquarius is friendly, community-minded, and focused on individual freedoms. There is a desire to topple old, outmoded structures and replace them with new egalitarian ones. On the low road, pessimism and a detachment from emotions can lead to withdrawal or outlandish behavior. Saturn traditionally rules this fixed air sign. The planetary Grim Reaper governs loss, grief, loneliness, and depression. This lunation will activate its ruler and may stir up feelings of separateness and anxiety. Stay present with your emotions and use healthy tools like dance, conscious...

Awakenings

 

Do you feel the pressure increasing? The current energy reminds me of the Spike Lee Joint, Do the Right Thing. It is sweltering and tempers are simmering. We are on the precipice of a seemingly preventable but inevitable tectonic shift. Uranus, the great awakener and bringer of sudden events, will meet the karmic North Node at 18 Taurus on July 31. The next day Mars, the planet of action, passion, conflict, and anger, will collide with them both. Abrupt and unexpected change is possible. Consider watching the movie with this transit in mind. Fearless with Jeff Bridges and Rosie Perez is another. Several of my clients already know their stories. Do you? Which house is it in your chart? What planets is the triple conjunction aspecting? Will you hit a figurative jackpot, or will it feel more like a fender bender? If you want my quick insights, use my new feature, Ask Me Anything! I will tape a short video for you.

Events will make big news, whether by natural or man-made...
