Explosive Tendencies

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...

AstrologyBytes Podcast Appearance

Are you moving through Mercury Retrograde season with minor frustrations, a few fun anecdotes, and no catastrophes? The official ending is Oct 18, but we are still in the shadow period until Nov 2.

Be aware that ghosts may continue returning from the past. Fingers crossed its friendly Casper and not someone reminiscent of an Edgar Allan Poe novel. Electronic issues also can still pop up, and secrets especially may be revealed. I am looking forward to the winged messenger entering Scorpio for the first time!

On the bright side, you may feel a motivational push forward now that achievement-loving Saturn is in direct motion and gaining speed each day!

Secondary progression is a forecasting technique that advances the natal chart into the future and provides insights into potential life developments. It is a day for a year technique. Astrologers focus on the progressed Moon because she moves the fastest at 1 degree per month and changes signs every 2.5 years.  She illuminates our...

Beauty and the Beast

Welcome to pumpkin spiced latte season! Airy Libra appreciates an elegant social event so make sure to add some time for fun and fellowship. With Mercury in retrograde the opportunity to reconnect with old friends is now. Make the call and set up a date!

Have you had any electronic glitches, mix-ups or mishaps?   My email melted down, my phone started talking to me unexpectedly and I came home with two bottles of Pinot Noir rather than Chardonnay by mistake in just the last few days. Monday’s massive Instagram outage ate my Astro & Oracle Live. Ugh! It was a good one.  Oh well. I would love to hear your stories, email me at [email protected] The technical glitches aside, have you had any revelations on how you partner with others?

On the surface, the October 6th lunation looks energizing, but dark intensity lies beneath.  The New Moon at 13º Libra reports into possessive and passionate Venus in Scorpio. She is having a side...

Protecting Treasure

The March 24, 2020 New Moon birthed the lunar phase family for this upcoming lunation. It also coincided with the seismic shift of our collective lives: social distancing. The entrance of restrictive Saturn in society ruling Aquarius shattered the myth of personal power and autonomy. How poetic that what began with an Aries New Moon culminates with a Pisces one. The Ram meets the Fish.

Watery Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac. This Full Moon at 28º Pisces on September 20, 2021 at 4:54pm PT offers an opportunity to release any false narratives surrounding control. It is time to surrender. The alternative is the punishment of Sisyphus to push the rock up the hill continually and stand at the summit bewildered as the stone descends.

The upcoming Mercury retrograde from September 27 – October 18 invites us to review, revise, and rethink our closest relationships. The social restriction has provided ample time for all to reconsider our values and what we treasure.

Get Organized!

We need a break and, finally, have a cosmic one. There is a hidden network of support to manage the evolutionary change of the year, duty-bound Saturn vs. revolutionary Uranus. On Monday, September 6 at 5:51 pm, the luminaries are in a soft trine aspect to Uranus, providing emotional help for required changes. They biquintile Saturn exactly. This minor yet mighty aspect is a grace note enabling unexpected pathways to success.

Mutable Virgo energy encourages incremental changes to improve things. We call it nitpicking when in shadow, but that may be needed if you hold on tight to the structures that no longer serve you.

Empress Venus, on her Libra throne, is also a star of this show. She is holding hands with the asteroid Vesta, guardian of the home and community. Alliances of all kinds are in focus. In particular, the relationship of women vs. the state as the most restrictive abortion law went into effect this week. This Virgo New Moon is an ideal time to organize and plan a...

Getting Clear on Your Vision

Full Moon at 29º Aquarius

Sunday, August 22, 2021, 5:01 am PT

This summer was bountiful but bumpy.  Did you have frustrating delays and unexpected changes on your path forward? Feisty Leo opposes Aquarius and squares Taurus.  One by one, the planetary parade of Mars, Venus, Mercury, and the Sun traveled into the heart of the lion. Each first faced off with Saturnian brick walls, and then from our blind spots came the Uranian curveballs.

I originally planned to launch the next round of the Moon Mastery™ program in September. However, I decided to delay until the beginning of 2022.  My focus for the rest of the year is on deepening my knowledge of horary astrology. The 20-week class comes with 8 hours per week of homework. In addition, I am supporting my clients with readings and teaching a class for one of my mentors. My plate is too full. I did not retire from corporate to stress myself out in other ways.  First came the aha moment and then, the...

Creating Joy!

Last month was a bumpy and exhilarating ride. Jupiter, the cosmic Santa, temporarily dropped its cape and left the ecstasy of Pisces for the limitations of Aquarius.  Like clockwork, mask regulations returned in the US. Thankfully, the planetary reversal is temporary. On December 28, the planet of good fortune returns home. Fingers crossed that we receive relief before then.

In addition, each of the personal planets opposed restriction-loving Saturn and then squared off with wild card Uranus. If you felt this disruptive energy, did you break down or break through? I would love to hear your stories. Reply to this email if you would like to share your experience.

Good news! The New Moon at 16º Leo on August 8 at 6:49am PT coincides with the annual Lion's Gate portal. Sirius, the second brightest star in the sky, is rising, and the numerology is on point. 8/ 8 offers endless possibilities. I suggest setting the alarm to meditate on the dream you have for your life at the...

Building Back Better

The Jupiter Saturn conjunction at 0º Aquarius on the winter solstice heralded a new 20-year story for each of us and a 200-year cycle for humanity. The plotline is to expand your life with new support structures. The Full Moon activation at 1º Aquarius on July 23 at 7:36 pm PT provides perspective, a clearer view on your vision of how you want to build back better.

The sun makes its annual visit home in fiery Leo. It is the heart of summer and time for joy and recreation. The lioness rules play, pleasure and fun. Aquarius is the sign of the collective. This lunation is the first of two in this airy sign, spotlighting the call of 2021 to release outdated structures. How do you create your bliss while honoring the social compact to consider we and not just the I? It is obscene that billionaires are blasting themselves into space while many struggle to put food on the table. For the rest of us here on Earth, we have an opportunity to find a new home in our relationship with...

Growing Your Garden

It is time to manifest!  This fertile New Moon includes ingredients to create, nurture and grow abundance. Asteroid Midas is in the spotlight! What will you turn to gold? Set intentions for wealth creation.  Saturn crystallizes results from hard work and is having a sweet conversation with the karmic North Node.  There is support for your path forward.  It’s a nice change after the pushback over the last few weeks, where many were left feeling frustrated, blocked, or stifled.

My favorite aspect of the year occurs during the New Moon phase of this cycle. Venus and Mars, the yin and the yang of joy creation, are embracing at 19º Leo on July 13.  A new cycle begins for each of us regarding creativity. It is time to bring fun, joy, and pleasure into your life. Don’t forget, it's the Summer of Love.  Bring sexy back and get your flirt on.

I added a new feature and picked an oracle card for each sign during my video. Enjoy my insights on...

Summer of Love

Are you ready for a reset?  On Sunday, the summer solstice marked a time of new energy.  I loved the harmonious water trio in the sky between the Cancer Sun, Scorpio Moon, and Pisces Jupiter. Use this energy for visioning, inspiration, and healing.  The caution is letting emotional waves overwhelm you. Get outside in nature if you start to feel the blues or rage brewing. Follow the sign of the Moon for additional insight into your mood shifts as the Sun reports into our costume-changing lunar teacher until July 22.  She has a new attitude every 2.5 days.

Get ready to party as the Summer of Love 2021 is here. Mars and Venus, the planets of romance and desire, meet for the first time in two years in fiery and fun Leo on July 13.  There is a call to joy but use your good sense. You may want to say no to any invite that includes the word rave, wild or massive, as Uranus, the planet of chaos, is bringing it. Be especially careful on July 4 as the Taurus Moon...
