and for the week—energy, imagination, passion and calm—june 8th – 11th

George-Barbier-LAir-868-35This week’s skies are dominated by the Gemini Sun/Mars conjunction sextiling Aries Uranus and Leo Jupiter, who themselves are in trine. At first the sextile to Jupiter is the strongest, but by week’s end, as the Moon comes to help, the interaction with Uranus takes command.

What it all means is we can look forward to a relatively productive week.

We will effortlessly have enough energy to get what needs done, done. It simply won’t cross our minds to procrastinate—we’ll be squarely in the ‘now’ of doing—Mars cazimi to the Sun and all! Jupiter adds confidence and good humor; Uranus lends genius and riotous know-how.

I’m not complaining.

On the emotional front, well, lovely Leo Venus and dapper Gemini Mercury Rx* sextile for most of the week. Our minds can easily tap into the beauty all around—this is a pleasant and calming boost to the whole shebang!

For her part, Luna is moving to Pisces as I type, shortly to square Saturn Rx in Sagittarius—perfect mentality to get the work week started. As she drifts through the Mutable waters Monday and Tuesday, intense imaginative solicitude will be collectively available.

Then by Wednesday, she has switched gears to the fiery passions of Aries, fueling the energies of the boys in Gemini. She interacts benevolently with most, save for a square to Capricorn Pluto Rx which may cause some minor power struggles. But by Thursday evening she is VOC, allowing us to rest up overnight to be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for Friday!

Yeah, still not complaining.

* I have noticed a glaring lack of hand-wringing about Mercury retrograde this go-round in Gemini. What’s goin’ on?

week ahead—going out to meet the tide—may 11th – 14th

Herbert-James-Draper-Flying-Fish-1910Alright, the God of the Sea will rule this week—attacking our days from a myriad of angles.

Deluded or sublime.

Fantastical or confused.

Stagnating or evasive.

Hell, prolly a combination of all the above.

So, today, with Mars at the anaretic 29th degree, our Taurus Sun sextiles Pisces Chiron. Though we have plenty of confidence, our get up and go is scattered and chaotic.

Later tonight, the God of War passes over into Gemini and we’ll find a new sense of vitality and enthusiasm.

Tomorrow, has the Moon solidly (ha!) in Pisces. Luna conjuncts Neptune and squares Gemini Mercury—deep emotions simply won’t jive with the outer rational world. We’ll feel foggy headed and desperately wish to retreat, delaying any heavy thinking.

But, by Wednesday, the Moon has saddled along side Chiron—tapping into his sextile with the Sun. An immense conviction of purpose will be available—we’ll readily learn from mistakes and forge ahead down a clear path.

Thursday, the lovely Moon will have moved to Aries. She proceeds to trine Sagittarius Saturn, square Cancer Venus, conjunct the South Node—on her way to meeting up with Jupiter and Uranus.

Shit, we will feel antsy, depressed, slighted and oh, so hot tempered about it all. Keep your head down to avoid the inherent pitfalls.

OR assimilate past triumphs and blunders, continuing along the course of conviction from the day before—Saturn will certainly help in this regard!!

Always TWO options, guys!!

Well, it’s a week to get lost and then find ourselves again—with both, the propensity for reward.

Yeah.

week ahead—grounding balance—april 13th – 16th

Our upcoming week shows extra emphasis on the talents of the Earth element—which is great, cuz we’re gonna need it!Friedrich-Caspar-David-ZZZ-The-Rock-Gates-in-Neurathen

For the week, the waning Moon will spend her time in Aquarius then Pisces.

While here, there is potential to get swept away with “out there” excitable daydreams and/or painful, unrealistic emotional dramas.

Uh oh.

But not likely. Let me explain.

We start the week similar to yesterday—Uranus/Pluto square still in effect, as well as the Mars/Neptune sextile. We are also getting accustomed to Venus now in Gemini.

Peachy.

And Tuesday sees Mercury leave Aries for Venus ruled, Taurus.

Lovely.

the vanguard sets out—super new moon/vernal equinox/total solar eclipse—march 20th

warwickgobleWell, to say the Heavens have a lot going on tomorrow is an understatement.

Beautifully rare to have a super moon eclipse on the day of an equinox!

It all amounts to a potent time to set intentions—this time not just for a month but for the season and whole damn year!

Here’s a chronological list of all that happens:

  • ∼4AM – 8AM EST: a Total Solar Eclipse occurs that can been seen over parts of Europe, Africa, etc.
  • ∼5:30AM EST: the SuperMoon New Moon occurs at 29º Pisces
  • ∼2:00PM EST: the Aries Moon trines Sagittarius SaturnRx at 4º
  • ∼6:45PM EST: the Spring Equinox occurs as the Sun ingresses into Aries

During the length of the day, Taurus Venus approaches her inconjunct with SaturnRx and Pisces Mercury, his with Leo JupiterRx. Both of which perfect on Saturday.

And of course, the Uranus/Pluto square is still holding strong at 15º.

Alright. Let me parse the pieces of this special day—

full moon prepatory cascade

From November the 2nd through the 5th, we have a series of events that will be setting up the Scorpio Full Moon on Thursday, the 6th.

First, Venus sextiles Pluto around midnight on the 2nd, giving a sexy vibe to the chilly autumn night.  The extra hour we obtain from Daylight Savings Time may come in uber handy for the weekend’s galavanting.

WB2_0022_She-was-the-Queen-of-them-allThen at dawn that morning, the Pisces Moon will conjunct Chiron and trine the Venus/Sun Scorpio conjunction.

Lots of Water.

The early A.M. will feel loaded with by-gone wounds. Obsessions and traumas may flare.

Or a transformation may come with the rising first light of day—locking the past firmly in the rear mirror.

Regardless, the Moon moves quick and she will be long gone from the scene by sunset.

on the brink—september 8th—the harvest supermoon

This month’s Full Moon is occurring along the Virgo/Pisces axis.  It is the third and final SuperMoon of 2014.  Native American’s call the Full Moon closest to the Fall Equinox, the Harvest Moon.  And the stars point to it being nothing short of a catharsis.

On Monday, September 8th the Virgo Sun will move into opposition with the Moon at 15° Pisces.  But not before Luna forms a Yod with Capricorn Pluto Rx  and Leo Jupiter.  And shortly after, the Full Moon dynamic will bring the healing powers of Chiron and the genius of Uranus into the fray.

To be quite honest, this is one of my personal favorite axes.  Not to mention with it being ‘super,’ there is so much potential written all over this event.  I am excited!

The Harvest Super Moon is gearing up to be an opportunity to utilize good ol’fashioned ingenuous humor to release long held emotional injuries.

Here’s the breakdown:

The Sun has been in Virgo for about 2 weeks.  We are well initiated in the Maiden’s modus operandi—hard work, details, critiquing the varnish off the walls—I kid.  During the New Moon in Virgo, we were asked to get real.  Now we get the opportunity to round out Virgo practicality with Piscean transcendence.  We are harvesting what we have sown.

Oppositions, especially of the Full Moon variety are a bridge between two polar archetypes.  This month we are given the chance to find balance among mutable energy—an Earth Sun and Water Moon, where the ocean meets the shore.  Where your toes are wet but your feet are still on the ground, just skirting the edge of the fluid depths. The Virgo/Pisces axis marks the ending and beginning of a journey. We are being asked to adapt and mutate if need be—to get our shit together in the physical plane (Virgo) as well as the spiritual plane (Pisces).

We are on the brink . . .
