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...
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.

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...
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...
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:
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...
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...
Pluto's transit through earthy Capricorn (2008 – 2024) over-delivered on the promise of structural upheaval. These transformations are paradoxical – hellish, potentially healing, and non-negotiable. Capricorn rules government, big business, authority, and tradition. Pluto transits are devouring and volcanic. Things burn down to the studs before rebuilding can begin. Stuff hidden in the shadows comes to light.
For the USA, an additional layer exists because we are in our first Pluto return. This planet resides in our natal chart at 27º Capricorn in the second house values and resources (money). The Lord of the Underworld is grinding on its natal location. February 20 was the first hit and coincided with the Russian war against Ukraine. For the first time in decades, the Russian threat of nuclear annihilation is back in the news. Atomic weapons were invented concurrently with the planet's discovery.
July 11 is the second time Pluto will trample the terrain. This time...
The water sign Cancer rules our home, family, and experience of safety and security. Intuition, instincts, and the desire for nurturing are also its domain. Jupiter in Aries tensely interacts with this lunation. The ruler of the truth is transiting the sign of self-assertion. As we enter the last half of the year, assess your wellbeing with radical honesty. How are you dealing with the chaos we are experiencing as a collective? The war in Ukraine, the Buffalo supermarket massacre, and the Uvalde school shooting all unmoored me. Witnessing how the senseless brutality of one person can devastate not just families but communities and countries is destabilizing. Chaos can ensue instantly if a tyrant has access to an army, a mob of angry supporters, or a single weapon.
Did you learn healthy tools to self-soothe from your family or develop them over time? How are you coping with the Chaos? Are you numbing yourself with food, alcohol, social media, shopping, etc.? Do you feel enraged...
