on deck for the weekend—another fiercely lazy one—may 29th – 31st

Edward-Robert-Hughes-Painting-022All weekend, the Gemini Sun conjunct Mercury Rx will square Pisces Neptune, while sextiling/trining the Nodal Axis in Libra/Aries.

We aren’t gonna want to do anything—except drink and socialize with friends—if it’s not too much bother, of course.

And with all this Mutable energy splattered over the place, things may get a little sloppy.

Yikes.

Today, the waxing Moon gets zapped from all sides (opposes Uranus, squares Pluto and Venus, sextiles Jupiter), so there is plenty to talk about. Luna is still in Libra—so, we definitely want to interact with others and shoot the shit as the energy builds for next week’s Full Moon.

But tomorrow, she moves into Scorpio and the intensity amps up. We will want to hang with only the chosen few in our circles. Nice and intimate, like.

Sunday, again Luna dances with many—Neptune, Jupiter, Pluto and Chiron.  Lots of Water to keep the emotions running high, with a dash of Fire to steam up the embers of the eighth sign.

This one may have us party hard at first, but see us retreating into our own safety zone’s by weekend’s end.

week ahead—everyone’s OK!—may 26th – 28th

As we go back to the daily grind from the holiday weekend, we find the Moon is still solid in Virgo, Gemini Mars moves to conjunct MercuryRx and Cancer Venus gets ready to trine Pisces Chiron. We still are under the effects of painting-by-george-frederic-watts-at-watts-gallery-surrey-conde-nast-traveller-26jan15-prthe Jupiter/Pluto inconjunct; Venus squaring Uranus; Mars/Mercury squaring Neptune.

This is very much a day of limbo—many things are just slightly off from exact. Precise does not characterize today, much to the chagrin of our waxing Virgo Moon.

Wednesday, is a busy one AND we have the energy to be when Mars and Mercury meet up.

But dang it! Pesky Merc Retch just may frustrate us, A LOT. And, to be honest, the day may be a wash, anyway, for Luna goes VOC before dawn and stays that way till evening when she moves to Libra. Finish things, don’t start them.

Anyhoo, our minds are very active and if it’s mental work we need to do—with pen and paper—we may just be alright.

And for the Venus/Chiron contribution to the week—well, there will be a magnificent feeling of ‘I’m OK, you’re OK!’ For when Water feels good (and trines feel good), we feel accepted and loved, unconditionally. Not a time to grapple with low esteem and body hatred—we’ll see straight through that B.S.!!!!

Thank goodness!

Thursday, sees residuals from the day before while Luna traverses the sign of the Scales. She zaps the Nodal Axis while trining the boys in Gemini—we’ll be thinking of the future of important relationships and how we can maintain the passion.

Love all around!

and for the weekend—social and on the rise—may 1st – 3rd

Well, super late last night Mercury moved into Gemini.

Herbert-James-Draper-The-Vintage-MornOur minds are a flit and a flutter with strong mental awareness. All the better to accompany the Moon in her current journey through Libra—another extra social, extra intellectual Air sign.

Mars nor the Sun are activated for the weekend, so it will most likely be a lazy couple spent reading and chatting—lounging about with our brains doing the heavy lifting.

And it is within the next few days the tough and menacing Pluto/Uranus square will officially break apart. We can all sigh a sigh of collective relief. Sure, residuals will linger but the worst is OVER!!!!

The good times continue to roll as Luna sextiles Leo Jupiter and trines Gemini Venusbenefics that make for the best of party partners—after zapping the North Node. Our timing is impeccable and we can’t help but keep a jolly smirk across our faces as we skip through the weekend.

Even Mercury opposing Sagittarius Saturn on Sunday won’t hinder us too badly, for the passionate and wise Scorpio Moon will trine Pisces Neptune easing the depressive ruminations Father Time throws our way.

So, our task is to enjoy the stimulating conversations the sky’s bevy of cerebral Air will grant us and revel in the amped energies of the waxing Moon—should be quite a nice start to May.

Happy May Day!!!

me or we?—libra’s total lunar eclipse—april 4th

In less than 12 hours we have the Libra/Aries Full Moon at 14º.

the-platonic-lament-1894-Not only is it a Full Moon but, in answer to the Equinox/New Moon two weeks ago, also the day of an Eclipse—a Total Lunar this time ’round—rare and bloody.

And on an even larger scale, tomorrow’s lunation speaks to events we were managing this time last Spring and Fall—full circle and/or full steam ahead.

There are many factors in play with this one, most notably: Sun conjunct Uranus, Mercury conjunct South Node, Jupiter trine Sun and last but not least, Sun & Moon square Pluto—t-square!

If you are the possessor of planets or points between 10º-17º of the Cardinal signs (and the Fire or Fixed signs, too) then this could potentially be a big event for you, with 14º-15º Cancer a dumping ground for a majority of the energies here—yikes, if you are the lucky one!

For the collective—lots of Fire, tons of Cardinal. Passion and initiative.

Those intentions set during the middle of March are coming to a head or gaining momentum depending on the necessary timeframe.

This Full Moon is on the Aries/Libra axis and is an Eclipse, therefore the Moon’s Nodes are conjunct the event (nodes = our past that greatly affects our future). So, it is very much a dynamic of “space or intimacy”—“mine or yours”—“me or we”—“individuality or co-operation”—or better yet, a lovely balance somewhere in between!

Yes, the past weighs heavily, but Pluto is engaged to force an evolution. Hard, painful, gut wrenching teardown then an Uranian-fueled forward thrust—if one is needed. Maybe it works out the attachment is rock solid and tomorrow’s Eclipse merely fans the fires of pleasure.

Well either way, by Summer’s end, we’ll get to partake these delights for a fourth parlay.

As always, look to the houses brought to the fore for precisely how this manifests personally for you.

Happy Blood Moon, everyone!

and for the weekend—march 7th & 8th

Various-Vintage-Illustrations-044I hope everyone enjoyed Thursday’s Full Moon.

Today, the Waning Moon saddles up along side the North Node in Libra.

The uber social Air sign loves a buddy—great for party and bar hopping tonight.

We will intrinsically be able to feel out the current mood of any atmosphere or person we encounter—you’ll know just what you’re walking into.

Sunday, the Pisces Sun exacts his conjunction with Chiron.

The Will and the Wound become One.

Collectively, we get the opportunity to come face to face with the perfect imperfection of being human. All our cruelties and faults; transgressions and shortcomings; oversensitivities and bad judgement calls swirl away into the beautiful waters of the universal Piscean sea.

It amounts to the total soul level acceptance of ourselves and the triumphant ruin that is humanity, simply as we are—if only for a day.

september 23rd & 24th—autumnal flux!

Ok.  Ready for this guys?

On September 22nd, at around 11:30 pm Central Standard Time, shortly after Pluto begins direct motion, the Sun moves from Virgo into Libra. This signals the change of the seasons.

Summer into Fall.

Alright, we get one full day of Autumn and then, on the night of the 24th at approximately 1:30 am CST, the New Moon occurs.

Wow!!  With all that’s mentioned above and Mars recently going into Sagittarius,  Wednesday morning is gonna feel so shiny and new.

Lots going on here.  So, let’s start at the center with the Sun—
