Confusingly, the symbol for airy Aquarius is the water bearer. Air signs rule communication and mental processes. This cosmic water nourishes the mind rather than the physical body. Prominent Aquarius energy is often found in the natal charts of scientists, inventors, and thought leaders. They gather knowledge and provide the collective with new tools and information to evolve.
The Humanitarian and the Revolutionary are well-known archetypes. At their core, people who embody this energy want to make things better in the future than they are in the now. There is a quest to improve something. The shadow energy can leave destruction in its wake, or it can change the world for the better when light.
Aquarius rules the big picture. This New Moon at 12º Aquarius on Monday, January 31 at 9:45 pm PT, invites us to think outside a traditional box when we set our intentions. Consider your long-range goals, dreams, and innovative ideas. What do you desire? How can you be more engaged with...
The Moon rules the zodiac sign of Cancer. This sign has dominion over home, family, foundations, and ancestry. We first learn about love from our families. The Full Moon at 27º Cancer on January 17 at 3:48 pm PT invites us to explore our relationship with self-love. If we don’t nourish ourselves, how can we express healthy love for anyone else? The Full Moon’s engagement with primal Pluto offers self-empowerment to examine the shadows with a goal of healing.
Venus in Capricorn is still retrograde until January 29, so reflection on our relationships and values is on the cosmic menu. Mercury in Aquarius begins his backstep on Friday, February 14. This cycle could be especially mischievous since Uranus, the ruler of electronics, is stopped from our perspective during the Full Moon. The station period intensifies the chaotic energy of the still active Saturn Uranus square. Unexpected breakdowns and frustrations are possible. You know the drill. Don’t rush...
Happy New Year! This year starts with a supportive flash of lightning in a bottle. Genius creating Uranus offers support to your big dreams for 2022. Our challenge will be to keep momentum when we face Saturnian setbacks. The last Saturn Uranus square on Christmas eve was a doozy. The Omicron variant brought chaos to the holiday season. As anticipated, structures have broken down unexpectedly:
The good news is that the square is separating. We will eventually begin to see relief until late summer, when the square begins to tighten again. The USA midterm elections will be a doozy.
There are exciting transits to anticipate. Jupiter and Neptune are both at home and will meet at 24º Pisces on April 12. I am excited about art,...
I love the rhythmic nature of the astrology cycles. The cosmos invites us to evolve, and the lunar nodes are teachers. They travel backward through the zodiac for 18 months. Since May 2020, the Gemini/ Sagittarius axis of information has been in the limelight. The collective work of integrating new ideas leading into the release of entrenched thinking ends soon. On Saturday, December 18, 8:35 pm PT, the final 2021 Full Moon debuts. It is the last one in the Mercury-ruled air sign of Gemini before the North Node moves into Venus-ruled Taurus to spotlight our resources and values. Are there nagging self-limiting stories that you want to release? Well, Venus in Capricorn will assist! She stations for her retrograde on the day of this lunation.
From December 19 until January 29, she will dance backward in heels. Venusian topics for review, reassessment, and revision include our money, values, and relationships. This tango promises intensity as her partner...
The last eclipse on the information axis is at 12º Sagittarius on Saturday, December 4, 2021 at 2:42 am ET. Since May 4, 2020 when the North Node entered fact gathering Gemini, the collective call is to cultivate a beginner mindset, educate ourselves and take in new data. The South Node is the discharge point and in Sagittarius we are tasked to release outdated and entrenched dogma. Take some time to consider how you have evolved during this time. How have you expanded your world view? You have until January 18th to complete the work before the evolutionary pull shifts into Taurus topics.
This Sagittarius eclipse is part of Saros series 5 South. Astrologer Bernadette Brady describes it as having a joyful nature. Good news, falling in love and peak experiences are possible. Have you noticed how many people are newly engaged? It was a pleasure to host a webinar to discuss the eclipse. Learn more about the signature of this lunation here.

Eclipse season is underway, and the lunar eclipse on Friday, November 19 at 27º Taurus brings textbook intensity. Do your best to be rested, calm, and centered because passionate Mars in Scorpio opposes chaos-loving Uranus. With oppositions, it is easy to swing one way or the other rather than achieve balance. Unexpected outbursts of anger are possible. The energy will last through American Thanksgiving. Avoid impulsivity! Be present so your family’s holiday does not end in tears, hurt feelings, or broken dishes. Scorpio season calls for shadow work. How can you love yourself and others' flaws and all? If possible, focus on gratitude and forgiveness rather than vengeance.
Another source of intensity is the Moon’s conjunction with feared fixed star Algol. In Greek mythology, this star is Medusa’s severed head. She was the feared Gorgon with snakes for hair whose visage was a weapon. One look and you turned to stone. Scorpio...

This Scorpio season promises surprises as we have the first eclipse on the axis of possessions. Personal vs shared resources will be in focus. On November 19, the Taurus Moon opposes the Scorpio Sun. This lunation is a sneak peek into the karmic collective journey of the North Node in Taurus upcoming transit: January 19, 2022 – July 17, 2023. I think two key themes will be shedding materialism and valuing the Earth’s limited bounty.
Being a guest on Coach Lia Dunlap’s podcast was a priceless gift. Like myself, she left the corporate world to pursue her calling. She helps people find their purpose and build prosperity.

This 27º Aries Full Moon on Wednesday, September 20th at 7:56 am PT is a doozy. Mars rules the bold and fiery sign of Aries, and he is currently in exile. The planet of action is struggling through the uncomfortable territory of diplomacy-loving Libra. Mars prefers to take rather than negotiate. To make matters worse, he is on his way to battle against Pluto, Lord of the Underworld. Spoiler alert, Pluto wins. This lunation magnifies the volcanic intensity of the battle of the cosmic baddies. Don’t turn love into a battlefield. Use this energy to build courage and activate your willpower to manifest your vision.
I suggest taking time out for a Full Moon ritual. Prompts for journaling, oracle cards, or contemplation:
Reflecting on my Libra New Moon intentions for bringing more balance to my relationships, what progress can I celebrate? Which goals need to be adjusted? What do I need to release?
Think back to the start of this lunar gestational family; the...
