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 The South Node is the discharge point and in Sagittarius we are tasked to release outdated and entrenched dogma.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. Niching down and letting go of energy drains is helping me to focus my business with more ease and joy. I suggest subscribing to her podcast for impactful guidance. View the discussion here.

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...
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...
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...
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.
