Welcome to November 2016!

Welcome to October!

October is a wonderful month, with much calmer waters ahead. We begin the month on October 1st with a sweet trine between Neptune and Venus allowing us to dream our way to love, enhancing our compassion and believing in the power of love. It's a very romantic day to plan something sweet with a love. 
Then on October 5th, things heat up and passion ignites with a sextile between Venus and Pluto if single it's a great day to attract a love interest because you are smoldering and sexy. 
On October 7th Mercury changes signs from Virgo to Libra so we are more aware of compromise and willing to hear another's perspective. This is great for all conversations and communication both romantic or business we are much more diplomatic, romantic and sweet. 

The best day to initiate any important matter with regards to communication is on October 11th when Mercury in Libra conjuncts Jupiter, feelings of optimism bring positive results because we are confident and in turns brings us positive and lucky results. 

The least favorite day to have any important conversations is on the 13th when Mars will make a tight square to Mercury, people might be a bit on edge including yourself or maybe to forceful another day is better.
October 15 there is a full moon in Aries, we will feel a bit impulsive, daring and willing to go after what we want fearlessly. It's a great full moon to take action that you have been putting off. 

On October 18th Venus moves from intense Scorpio into fun and carefree Sagittarius, lightening up the atmosphere and giving Sagittarius a bit a fun and glamour. Things become much lighter and more spontaneous interactions and fun.

October 30th there is a New Moon in Scorpio which will enhance our desire nature and give us the ability to magnetize the things we want into our lives by setting our heart on what we want and drawing these things to us through our enhanced desire nature. 

Welcome to September 2016

September is a big month for all, we have a lot going on right from the start! We start the month with Mercury Retrograde, a New Moon, and a partial solar eclipse right off the back on the 1st, and later the powerful Pluto finally goes direct on September 26th, Saturn turned direct last month so the pressure is back on and it's time to set up solid structures and foundations and to get the job done.

Welcome to March 2016

Welcome to February, the Lover's Month


All though not everyone is lucky enough to find love or keep it, it is a month that is favored for finding it and fanning the flames on a already existing love. 

This month Venus is in the sign of Aquarius, pushing us all to learn how to not only be lovers but friends and to appreciate our partners for who they are rather than who we want them to be. 

With Venus in Aquarius we are implored to try new things and to not be afraid to be different. Even if your not an Aquarius your luck will be found in the house that Aquarius rules. You can expect to see the Goddess of luxury, love and favors bestow a little fortune in that area of your chart. 

Venus is in a very favorable Quintile to Lover Mars this month so those of you in love, should be happy as can be. Those of you single and looking have a favorable chance of finding a good match but you will need to go out and make the effort it's not likely to show up at your door.

Another powerful transit of Rahu or North Node is in Conjunction to Jupiter pushing us ahead in a rapid fast speed with new and exciting opportunities for expansion in the area of which this conjunction is happening for you. This is a flags down get ready and go, expect people coming into your life, and new opportunity to help push you forward in your life direction. 

Jupiter is the God of Abundance and is Rx right now back tracking to cover old ground and bring light and new possibilities to bring you abundance. However, we got Karmic Saturn making a Square to this Conjunction so we can expect some Karma coming in this situation. 

If all your efforts have been for the universal good or positive then the Karmic implications should be good as well. Saturn is the judge here and will be overlooking or monitoring and keeping Jupiter in check to what he's able to provide. Overall it should be positive for most perhaps not as supernova as it could be but what is due will be coming. 

We got Saturn turning Rx, after the exact Jupiter Square on March 23rd while Jupiter is Conjunct the North Node, pay attention to this day! Then Saturn will turn Rx on the 25th to go back over old ground as well in the sign of Sagittarius and releasing Jupiter just for a bit only to make a final Square once again on May 26th. We don't usually want Saturn involved in a fortunate Jupiter transit but were all being kept in check to be sure that we have earned our way, there are no handouts on this one. 

Saturn is the realist and as long as we are all doing the best we can he does reward! and they are usually long lasting rewards!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------


Happy New Year All! it's now 2016, Wow does time fly right? I hope you all had a wonderful celebration with all those that love you! 

As I write this post Sunday, January 3rd, 2016 the Moon phase is waning, and in the sign of Scorpio in Al-Ikli which is good for financial security, Friendship, Love and Marriage, Building, promotions, and healing. So I think I am in the right mood here.

Now there's big news for the month because we have both Mercury and Jupiter turning RX. Which this time both will be very favorable. Although the usual mix-ups and introspection in likely to occur, some solid decisions and opportunity will be available.

When planets turn Retrograde, they offer us opportunities to really dig deeper into the energy and I find for myself personally I function much better and think much clearer under Mercury Retrograde. During Retrograde planets we are going back over things and are being given a chance to clarify, and re-do or represent ourselves in a new light. We will go over things more thoroughly, and usually come out much better because of it. As far as love and relationships are concerned it may be a scary time because your may fear your partner may re-think things, and yes this often happens but this is usually a really good time to make things better if there are any issues. If they can be worked on you are getting a chance to air the issues and work through them. If things can't then sometimes the relationship will end. In many instances you get a opportunity to revisit old relationships, and get closure, or in other times repair them, it all depends on the person and their personal experience.

A New Year brings new energy and there are Lot's of positive things happening for everyone. Cheer's here's to a fabulous New Year! May all your dreams come true!. 

The month begins with Mercury Retrograde, on January 5th, and then shortly after followed by Jupiter on January 7th were going to be internalizing a lot and the luck we receive we may need to create. Depending on the houses affected will describe more of what you can expect and what areas will be revisited during this time.

Mercury Rx can create havoc but that's mostly because we as a society are highly dependent on technology to accomplish anything. Well Mercury rules this area and while retrograding technology has a hard time, and this is where most of the complications and aggravation is usually seen. Many companies choose to update their websites during this time, which can be frustrating but everyone revisits areas to try to improve them even company websites need to do so.

It need not be complete chaos, for the most part it's our reactions to the set backs that make things worse. When things go awry, simple take a deep breathe and relax it will all work itself out, don't make matters worse by loosing it. We need to be more patient, and retrograde planets teach us this, especially Mercury. 

Although confusion occurs, technology goes wacko, and mail may be misdirected, it's really about learning to slow down, and have patience and to also take our time to evaluate things. 

Don't worry, trust in the universe it's plans are greater than us, and it's usually all for good reason and you see this usually in hindsight.

Personally, I am a huge fan of planets turning retrograde because I may mistakes and love the opportunity to correct them but really because we are kind of shooting from the hip on a daily basis and being able to rethink and redo things is really quite nice. 

During Mercury Retrograde I have heard from long lost friends, old lovers returned, employers from the past offered me new jobs, heck i even had something I thought I lost for many years suddenly show up! It all depends on the house it's turning Rx in along with aspects being made, but one thing is for sure, things are revisited.

Retrograde planets are opportunistic times, yes things can go haywire for a bit, or you might have to hold off on a big decision but usually we are happy we did in the end.

So, go back in time and fix things, revisit them and polish them up but most importantly have patience for it all to come together.

With Mercury being the planet of communication, technology and transportation, writing any form to getting information out, contracts, paperwork all these are the areas you want to focus on now.

The best thing to do during Mercury Retrograde is to revisit, redo, rewrite, or attempt to repair or fix things.

If your computer, phone or car breaks down, you might need a new one and many say not to purchase things in these areas during this time, because of the confusion and lack of clarity you might buy a lemon so the advice is to repair it, don't buy new. 

I have seen this work many ways, some have bought lemons and others have gotten really good deals on very good product. It's really a crap shoot and a lot depends on your natal chart. I am an Aquarius so I don't follow the rules. I tend to take many risks and do the things I am warned not to. I have gotten credit cards , loans and bought cars during Mercury Retrograde and have not experienced any problems with them, as a matter of fact I always seemed to have gotten a pretty darn good deal. 

It's seems Murphy's law applies to all the planets when they turn Rx if something breaks it was gonna anyway and updates or care was needed or perhaps you bought a lemon prior to Mercury Rx. 

I do know there are delays and complications, Internet problems and even communication and transportation problems that can be down right frustrating! but what do you expect when we are rewinding in time? Hey there's bound to be glitches:)

The key is to be patient don't get frustrated and make poor decisions out of haste. Move slowly, talk slowly and heavily review anything before you make a decision. 

If you were planning on making a purchase prior to Mercury Retrograde and you already did the research, go ahead just make sure you review all the details closely.

Welcome to October 2015

Fabulous Month for Air and Fire Signs!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Welcome to September 2015! 

September 27th big news, the last of the 4 Tetrad Blood Moons, but even more significant is that this last Moon is also a Super Moon, and a Total Eclipse. see my write up for more by clicking the link below.
Super Blood Moon Total Eclipse


And We have to join in with this Super Moon powerful Pluto moving direct!

Venus Direct!

Venus has been Retrograde, allowing us to take a step back and evaluate the things that we value and why, it's also promoting reflection on our love nature, our desires and how we make or spend money. 

I hope many of you were able to snatch up some excellent deals on all things which are one fabulous benefit of Venus Rx. Well it's almost over and we will be back on, in matters of the heart for those of you in a relationship, things will begin to heat back up, depending on where Venus has been Rx in your Composite together, along with your own natal transits of Venus. 

Those of you in business for yourself, you may have seen a return of clients from the past, those single might have had a lover from the past contact you or you may have been thinking about one in particular from the past. 

Either way Retrogrades, give us the opportunity to Re-do which I don't know about you, but I can most certainly use some of those from time to time. It's a good time, to manage your finances as well, refinance or try to lower your interests rates, change banks or whatever is necessary.

 Well it's finally near end, and hopefully you made some plans to do things better, made some positive changes and are now in gear for Venus's direct motion again..a couple more days to wrap things up so redo, replan do what you got to do before she turns direct, you won't have this chance for another 2 1/2 years!

Also, Atlas, September 24th, Hardball player Pluto will resume direct motion after his long 6-month retrograde cycle.  Hopefully you have learned to work with your personal power and the power of others, don't hold on to the things that are not good for you, and don't misuse your power either, because Pluto will come right back to take it away anyway..You must play fair under Pluto's transits. 

 He's one tough guy, but if you learn to use your power for the benefit of others, not to tear them down -you will do just fine. 
Pluto teaches us how little control we really have on outside circumstances, so why try? Let go, ebb and flow with the Universe.
Welcome to August 2015 Sun in Showman Leo!

Venus is Retrograde, Love relationships are under scrutiny, feelings of frustration may surface if there are changes needed, temptations arise, are you getting what you need out of your relationship?
for more see my Venus Retrograde- Love Under Fire

Saturn is now direct so things are beginning to move forward again, after his long break in re-planning mode, enough internalizing it's time to get moving. Where ever Saturn is transiting in your chart is where you can now build stronger structures, solidify or make stronger, so get going and stay on track!


HAPPY July 2015! Sun in Sensitive Nurturing Cancer

Don't forget to take a look at tonight's Full Blue Moon, it won't happen for another 2 1/2 years this is a super special Moon it will be in Conjunction with Ceres the Goddess of Grain & agriculture, the Mother the Nurturer! This New Moon will allow us a very fruitful next cycle. We can set our intentions tonight, and watch them grow beyond our wildest expectations. What is it you want in your life? 

Venus Turns Retrograde tomorrow July 25th! Big news, relationships are front and center and on review, temptations run amok, and relationships, in general, feel a strain. Feelings of discontent are common. If you have not been a positive force in your significant others life or they to you, then things might get a little sticky, and some people will end their relationship. It's not wise to make rash decisions now, but people often do anyway.  Old lovers often come back too to complicate things even further check back for my Venus Retrograde 2015 write up.

July is a great month, to promote that change you have been meaning to... but... perhaps kept putting it off for the right time. Well, you will have a little push from the Universe this month and it will be hard to resist. 


The Pluto-Uranus Square has been toying with us for some time now and is finally nearing a close, but not without its last and most potent standoff yet. Pluto and Uranus are similar in stubbornness but different in energy. While Uranus wants to break free, Pluto wants drama. 

We begin the month with a  Full Moon in Capricorn on July 1, 2015, this moon might be a " reveal it all Moon" or a "let it out Moon" it will be in difficult aspect to some major players. 

First off, this full moon will be in close contact to Pluto. We all know Pluto is a darn good digger, and this Moon will receive a surge of some powerful emotions. It will likely push to the surface any suppressed feelings and emotions we have. This can be disastrous or extremely healing and it's all in the delivery so think things through first as hard as it may be.  

Pluto is the demolisher, so we can build new, but sometimes there is already a foundation that can be built upon (improved, fixed, restructured) other times, we must make a change and start new with a new foundation to build upon. This will be the theme, breaking down the old outdated, empty, cluttered, confusing or whatever it may be, it's to clear out or let go. 


Although these decisions are often very difficult and things we try to ignore, over time these things erode our life, our soul, our very being. We need to be authentic to ourselves, we need our needs met, in order to be the best that we can be and the happiest. 


Sometimes we hold on to things that are not good for us, because we live in fear of change, or simply live in fear. Pluto is very powerful  he purges us of the things that are superficial, hidden, toxic, not real or that we need not tolerate any longer. 


Tolerating and having patience and humility is always the daily prescription to a happy life. However, tolerating for the sake of keeping the peace, even if it is not good, depleting, or damaging is  not how we are supposed to live. Well, this last Uranus-Pluto Square is giving us the push to liberate ourselves once and for all. 

However, we must be wise, not compulsive, this won't be easy but try to think things through a bit" before letting anyone have it", the intense feelings can cause us to over react, wait. When things calm down re-evaluate these feelings and see if there is real truth to them, if there is be willing to make the change, let go, or begin a new. Don't decide impulsively, you may change your mind when the aspect passes, it's short lived involving the Moon, but not short in feeling.

Adding to this intensity the Sun and Mars will also make aspect so look to see which houses these planets are in your chart for clues as to what to expect. 


The Sun involves our ego or our need to be appreciated and even admired, but acknowledged will work, we can't go unnoticed and Mars, well he just needs action he doesn't care what kind and usually doesn't apply much brain power. 


Strong desires and needs are highlighted, and action required. Overall expect some brief but likely intense emotional fireworks as your true desires and needs, see the light of day and demand to be met.


It's a great moon, to let it out and ask for what you need, how else are we going to have a chance to get it right or get it? by getting real with ourselves, and willing to make the change. 


Just try to diplomatic in your approach to resolution with others. Relationships are likely to be the "brunt of it" all relationships with others. Since we tend to tolerate and then blame others rather than take responsibility for the fact that we have the things, people, behaviors ect.. in our life because we allow them.  Now is the time to take responsibility and make the needed changes, if there need be.

Neptune Retrograde Today! June 12th, 2015

The Neptune Fog clears, and you suddenly realize those things that you just didn't while Neptune was direct. Now is the time to make major decisions, you powers of discernment are back temporarily, so be sure to make the most of it. You are no longer willing to tolerate bad relationship behavior. Annoyances aren't fun and they will show their face during Neptunes Rx since while direct he tends to make them sweeter or acceptable, and we turn a blind eye. Time to wake up!

Welcome to March 2015

The big news this month!  Saturn is Retrograde and there are Karmic implications for some and a time to solidify structures and rework particular areas of their lives. Saturn is Murphy's law if it can go wrong it WILL, he doesn't make things happen they are a result of our negligence or bad behavior. The key is to avoid all karmic implications keep your slate clean! don't do things to others you would not want to be done to yourself, the universe has a way of bringing it right back to us. Just as Pluto empowers us, he just as swiftly takes it around, Saturn let's us break the rules, but will punish us after we do but if we play fair, We also get rewarded. There is justice to the universe, cause, and effect.

On another note: Very powerful Solar Eclipse on its way tomorrow March 20th, 2015. This is a total eclipse in the confusing yet compassionate sign of Pisces. Things are going to be forced to a head to clear away and finalize an area of our life. Eclipses bring powerful energies in through the sign into the houses and will kick off aspects as well. As the solar energy is blocked for a short period of time, worries and even fear are common for some, and for others a new surge of very positive energy comes forth just after the eclipse. This eclipse will bring very powerful changes where your life will take a new direction leaving much of the old behind. Many are looking for that new start and are ready to make deep changes. These changes will be ushered in just after the eclipse and generally felt for approximately 6 months. Take a look at the house the eclipse will be activating and see my (Eclipse through the houses article) for what to expect!

  1. What does the grand water trine mean on7/17? That day I visited an old love interest who's still a friend but still like each other and we got really close that day physically and emotionally. I don't think it means we r starting over but how could it affect us? We are both pretty much fire/air types natally.

  2. Hi, this grand water trine was in Water, deep emotions came to the surface, Cancer represents the past so it could definitley indicate a meeting of the past. For each person it will have a different effect depending on what houses were being lit up by the grand trine, so taking a look at yours would give you insight. Interesting you decided to meet up with him on that day, I do believe that to mean something. I would also look at your personal transits, including love asteroids and where they were, along with your composite transits, and even a meeting day chart to see if this is a indication of a rekindling of some sort:)

    ReplyDelete
  3. Hmm well I don't have time of birth for him but for me, Pisces is on my 8th (2 deg), Scorpio on the 4th (1.3 deg) and cancer on 12th house but 11 deg so maybe the effect is still in the 11th house

  4. How does one do a meeting day chart

    ReplyDelete
  5. It's really hard to say anything for sure without having all the details. Astrology is very complex as you know, many layers. Since you don't have his birth-time, Check the love asteroids for very important meetings. The meeting chart is your birth chart or a composite chart and his chart of the day you met with him. Check into those transits, all aspects being made. It's complex, and time consuming, but if it get's under your skin and you need help. I would be happy to help, that would be covered under my love transit report.:)
