may 3rd—scorpio full moon—courting the dark side

William-Blake-Jerusalem-Plate-100-Art-ProjectJust before midnight tonight, the Scorpio Moon opposes the Taurus Sun for Beltane’s Full Flower Moon.

Beltane. Half way through Spring—that time in the cycle when all is locked in, FIXED and thriving.

Or is it?

Springtime is lovely and Taurus is abundant—budding flowers, warmth, soft breezes and green, green grass. But what of the darker impulses that come out when least convenient and most unexpected? When everything is so perfect?

fast and dirty—t-squares, boomerangs & kites, oh my!

In anticipation for the upcoming grand-Fire-trine/Kite formation this October, I want to post a fast and dirty about astrology’s ‘outs’.

ornamentHuh?

Well, what I mean is, sometimes the planets line up in a manner that gets a little bit tricky, little bit stressful, little bit scary, yeah?

healing through inspiration, transformation and fortification: part 1

From July 27th to August 3rd, lovely transiting Venus in Cancer is the focus of 2 major aspect configurations.

Along with Venus, Chiron (healing), Uranus (inspiration), Pluto (transformation) and Saturn (fortification) are the dancers in this waltz and it just screams healing with a capital “H”!

In this 2 part series, I’m gonna break down the energies and show ya how you can put this mojo to good use.

Ok, let’s start from the top—Cancer wants security, predictability and comfort.  Whichever natal house cusp Cancer is, is where you will have these requirements, more than most other places.  For example, Cancer on the 7th house cusp wants a partner who is secure and provides security, is predictable and feels comfortable.  On the 3rd house cusp, the native would want day-to-day activities and a neighborhood environment that demonstrates security, predictability and comfort.  Even with no personal planets in Cancer, the house where Cancer resides is the area where you have the capability, and necessity, to nurture.
