Buckle Up Buttercup!

I was interviewed last year for a Cosmopolitan Magazine article about the astrology of twins. Seeing it published as Venus retrograde in Leo perfected its second of 3 squares with Uranus conjunct my natal Mercury in Taurus was a delight. Venus rules women, Leo celebrities, Mercury magazines, and Uranus fame. If Our Birth Charts Say So Much About Us, Why Am I So Different From My Twin? was published the in a world-famous women's magazine. I was quoted alongside the Astro Twins, celebrity astrologers. Astrology is literal! The first square was July 3. Did you have a surprise event or awakening around relationships, money, values, beauty, or self-esteem? If there was an echo in your life last week on August 8/9, the story might have another event around the final transit on September 29.

The planetary VIP this week and the upcoming New Moon is Uranus which does not follow conventional rules. As per NASA:

Uranus is the only planet whose equator is nearly at a right angle to its orbit....

Collective Knowing

My life is a whirlwind. Expansive Jupiter conjoined my Sun and hardworking Saturn in my 11th house of groups in July. It’s been 12 years since the cosmic Santa lit up this part of my chart. The experience includes abundance and a bit of overwhelm. I was honored to share my work with ISAR, SDAS, and Synchronicity University. I am the new host of Transit Talks every first Sunday with the Organization for Professional Astrology (OPA) and a manager of OPA Live. It is a fantastic organization. Consider joining to sharpen your skills! 

My application to speak for NORWAC in 2024 was accepted. This annual astrology conference occurs over Memorial Day weekend in Seattle. I am over the Moon with joy! Join me if you want to deepen your astrological knowledge, cultivate community and have fun!

Venus Retrograde Care Package

Venus in Leo dances backward in heels from tomorrow, July 22, until  September 3. This retrograde invites us to review, redefine and reimagine our approach to relationships, material abundance, beauty, self-worth, confidence, and more. Chiron, the wounded healer, starts its annual reversal on Sunday until December 26. Think back to the summer of 2015 for insight into potential themes.

This closeness of the two internally focused transits invites healing through examining our shadows. For an in-depth discussion of the transit and illustration through natal chart readings, purchase the Venus Retrograde workshop replay.  

Oracle cards are a powerful tool for tapping into the subconscious and the current energies. I pull cards daily for myself and at the end of every astrology reading for my clients. My friend Maria Marmanides is a tarot/ oracle card reader, astrologer, and writer. I am in awe of her talents and highly recommend her Women of Myth oracle deck. "It is an...

Surprise Showers

This lunar cycle is going to bring the drama. On the day of the New Moon, the North Node enters Aries and the South Node into partner Libra until January 2025. The lunar nodes move backward through the zodiac. This transit begins at the 29th degree of karmic lessons, crisis, and decay. The collective work shifts from focusing on resource allocation to relationship dynamics. It's time to assert personal needs, embrace courage and enforce healthy boundaries. As we adjust to the shift, I expect we will experience surges of the shadows. Selfish, aggressive, and tactless behavior will abound as the rules of civility are rewritten.

The Sun in Cancer, Pluto in Capricorn, and the lunar nodes will form a cardinal grand cross on July 21 at the 29th degree of each sign. Crosses are planetary patterns without an outlet. Venus in fiery Leo stations retrograde on July 22. Seismic events will occur around this time. Extreme weather is likely as the New Moon is sextile surprising Uranus and trine...

Legacy Building

On the Celestial Insights podcast dated June 26, I forecast that we might have surprising legal cases. Three stunning Supreme Court decisions reflected the First Quarter Moon (FQM) in Libra’s aspects—the sign oversees justice, artists, and marriage. FQM phases are times when we take action. In the astrology chart, Jupiter (judges) in Taurus (money, resources, artists) was in a smooth sextile with Saturn retrograde (authority rolling back judgments) in Pisces (forgiveness, atonement, oneness, and slavery). In addition, Mercury in Gemini was in a tense square with Neptune in Pisces, Mars in Leo squared Uranus in Taurus, and Neptune slowed down to station retrograde on Friday. The Associated Press is paraphrased below in italics.

The Court killed President Joe Biden’s $400 billion plan to cancel or reduce federal student loan debts & ended affirmative action in higher education.

Ask, Believe, Receive!

Saturn in Pisces is getting louder as it grinds to a stop and approaches its retrograde cycle. Retrogrades coincide with collapse, antagonism, reversals, difficulties, delays, and reoccurrences of previous situations. Shadows of this planet controls, denies, deceives, and bring challenges. Pisces topics include drugs, addiction, gasoline, poverty, religion, and water. Recent stories include:

  • The destruction of a Ukrainian dam flooded towns, killed fish, eliminated vital drinking water, and left thousands homeless.
  • Thousands of dead fish washed up on a Texas beach. A lack of oxygen due to rising temperatures is the culprit.
  • On a positive note, 1.5 million fentanyl doses were seized and 40 people were arrested in Florida.
  • Authorities warned Floridians that the 5000-pound Sargassum seaweed blob that hit the beaches contains flesh-eating bacteria.
  • Saudia Arabia will limit oil production starting in July.
  • A truck loaded with gasoline caught fire on the vital freeway I-95 near...

Aim Higher

I just returned from the NORWAC astrology convention in Seattle, WA. These events are an amazing opportunity to meet and learn new techniques from exceptional astrologers. Being in a community with like-minded spiritual adventures is such a joy. If you are a professional astrologer, enthusiast, or addict, I recommend putting a conference on your bucket list.

Jupiter, the cosmic Santa, transits resourceful Taurus until May 2024. The blessings and expansion are earthbound. Consider how you can grow wealth sustainably, experience more embodiment and embrace simple pleasures.

My Taurus Sun is in the 11th house of groups. In July, I will speak for the International Society of Astrological Research (ISAR), the San Diego Astrological Society, and Synchronicity University. I will keep you posted. The first of 3 Jupiter connections with my Sun is on July 23. The beauty is that if you lean in a little, the greater benefic, with surpass your expectations for expansion. For myself, this transit...

Abundance Mindset

Earthly Taurus offers a slower pace, stability, and grounding. Welcome this lunation as a reset after the wild ride of eclipse season. Whether yours was uneventful, brought hardship, or delivered abundance, I suspect you felt some of the intensity. If not yourself, people in your orbit likely experienced seismic shifts. The magnified lunations have long tails. Events will still unfold over the next several months as transits activate the hot degrees of 29º Aries and 14º Scorpio.

Donald Trump had an eclipse season to remember. The eclipse hit his 9th house of legal affairs. I recorded a video on my YouTube channel explaining the astrology. You can view it here. Subscribe to be notified when I drop new content.

Communicative Mercury turned direct at 5º Taurus yesterday. Take some time to revisit what came to your attention during the retrograde. Of course, the usual transportation woes, scheduling mixups, and electronic snafus likely occurred. For many, financial or...

Queen Me

Returning home to see family and childhood friends was part of my Mercury retrograde experience. Mars in Cancer took me back to my roots. Retrograde shenanigans ranged from humourous to irritating. My favorite was during a day trip to New York City. I wanted to take the elevated HiLine walking path from Penn Station to the West Village, but the entrance was closed due to an art installation. Mercury rules transportation, and it is transiting the Venus-ruled sign of Taurus. Venus rules art. Retrogrades cause delays and reversals. I spent time walking in a circle trying various entrances with no success.

Taurus also governs money. Pay extra attention to invoices, bills, and receipts for the rest of the month. Miscalculations and fraudulent charges are possible. UBER overcharged one friend, and I had a frustrating problem with my hotel bill due to miscommunication.

Intense, watery Scorpio rules sex, death, organized crime, and immense wealth. This week, another bank failed, and the...

Identity Crisis

Aries is the sign of the self. On a personal level, this lunation is exciting. There is positive energy for self-actualization. Tap into the inspirational fire to stay optimistic that you can achieve your big goals despite setbacks. Eclipses often reveal the story weeks in advance. Do you know what new beginning seeded in your life? For a deep dive into the astrology and what it could mean for you, purchase the Solar Eclipse workshop replay here.

On a collective level, brutal conflicts are escalating globally. War-mongering Mars rules this sign, and the 29th anaretic degree amplifies the combative energy. Gun violence in the USA is shattering records. In Sudan, a paramilitary group is attempting to overthrow the government. Jupiter, which governs justice, is in a weakened state of combustion. The Supreme Court may ban an abortion (Uranus) pill. I expect people to take to the streets with outrage. Religious leaders are also Jupiterian figures. I recorded a video about the Dalai Lama...
