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!

for the long weekend—mirth and maelstrom—may 22nd – 25th

me55-burne-jones-the-knights-and-the-briar-roseThe Cancer Moon trined Pisces Chiron early this morning (about 1AM)—giving us potentially sweet, sweet dreams through the night. She is now Void of Course, remaining so till suppertime.

The Sun moved to Gemini yesterday and is currently locked in an opposition with Sagittarius Saturn Rx. How we interact with authority figures, especially about issues of communication and education will be highlighted.

This, Mercury Rx and a VOC Moon make the last day of our workweek a bit stressful—blah, it will keep till Tuesday. Do the best you can.

Tomorrow, the Moon is in shiny Leo interacting with all the planets in vivacious Gemini (Sun/Mars/Mercury) eventually to conjunct Jupiter, then trine zany Aries Uranus on Sunday.

This makes the weekend proper a skip in a budding spring meadow. Leo is happy and fun and it will definitely show!

And then we get to Monday.

Cancer Venus will square Aries Uranus while the Moon travels through Virgo creating a rolling Mutable Grand Square and Grand Cross with Saturn, the boys in Gemini and Neptune.

Fitful excitable day. We won’t know whether we want to read something, clean something, lecture someone or just get drunk instead. Before the day is done, we will probably partake in all of it!!!

It will be a bizarre vibe to remember our veterans under, but not so bad to have a backyard BBQ.

Or just go see Mad Max another time, like me.

week ahead—adapting to serve—april 27th – 30th

This week is one where Mutable energy runs the show.

Warwick-Goble-Vintage-Illustration-030But first, today, the Leo Moon squares Mars and Mercury in Taurus—so, our hearts will be out of sync with our words and actions.

Though the need to keep our environment stable is strong, we simply end up saying all the wrong things and potentially muck it all up. Best to keep a tight rein on our tongues and forego impatient decisions.

Thankfully today will be the most disjointed of the week, for by tomorrow the Moon moves into Virgo and quickly trines the Taurus Sun, as Mars sextiles Chiron. The need to organize and tweak will take over AND we’ll have the clarity and sense of purpose to see it done.

A Virgo Moon needs to serve and be of service—even if it’s just cleaning out our desks at work. We’ll simply feel the impetus to be more helpful and to take exceptional care with the “little stuff”.

Wednesday will be very similar to Tuesday—wanting to improve surroundings (Sun sextile Neptune) while having the drive (Moon trine Mars) and imaginative moxy (Moon opposite Neptune) to match our desires—with the exception of Gemini Venus squaring Pisces Chiron.

This tends to create a stumbling around like ‘awkward teenagers, unconfident and insecure affect. Especially with Venus in Gemini—our intellectual acumen will take the hardest hits.

Ughhhhh, painful!!

Hopefully, with all the Neptunian and Mutable energy about, the above will be smoothed to a fine-grade sandpaper. Well, at least long enough for us to realize our doubts need only be temporary.

Thursday, the lovely Virgo Moon will trine Taurus Mercury for a pleasant Earthy dose of feeling and thinking in simpatico, further adding to the prevailing ambiance of the week. This right before the Winged Messenger moves into Gemini, sign of his rulership, very late that evening. (More on that later.)

We are gonna know what we want and know how to get it with just enough celestial balm to keep our stress levels at a workable level. The one thing Mutable does best is roll with those punches, so no matter what life tosses at us, we will be adequately prepared to adapt as necessary.

All in all, a pretty positive week.

vivacious escalation—double fire trines—april 2nd

Lots of fuel to burn today, guys!!

william-blake-1757-1827The Aries Sun is trining Leo JupiterRx at 12º, while Aries Mercury is trining Sagittarius Saturn at 4º.

So much Fire!!

And couple the above with the transiting Moon in efficient Virgo and since, Saturn is in play—well, there’s enough good sense to harness all the passion and verve into a productive outcome.

This is the energy we get to play with during the final days of build-up before the Full Moon/Eclipse on Saturday.

Tons of benevolent Masculine Fire with a waxing Moon before an Eclipse—get crackin’ ya’ll!!!

of service and surrender—virgo/pisces full moon—march 5th

Today is the Virgo/Pisces Full Moon at 14º. Saule-Ct168-1024x847

I spoke about Mercury’s role in this event a couple of days ago and yesterday’s post related some of what Venus is up to today.

So, along with the Full Moon proper, I will concentrate on the following pieces to this intricate Lunation:

  • Mars conjuncts the South Node in Aries
  • Venus/Uranus quincunxes the Virgo Moon
  • Luna trines Cappy Pluto and opposes Pisces Chiron
  • Sun conjuncts (albeit widely) Chiron (adding himself to the reformed Jupiter Rx/Pluto/Chiron Yod)

Alright.

new moon, august 25th—the virgin gets real

August 25th, the Moon pays a visit to the Sun in the sign of Virgo.

New Moons are the chance to get a new perspective or initiate action on the area of your chart housing the conjunction.  It comes once a month, is in a different house and they are a supurb way to tweek your life toward the most badass you.

It is Virgo time!!  This sign is practical, efficient and organized.  No other Moon will give you the energy to make real world, real time changes where they are needed.  This is not the emotional headiness of Pisces or the take no prisoners power of Aries—this is roll your sleeves up and get that garage cleaned out magnificence!!!
