Astrology to End July

Can you believe that July is almost over?  The Summer (or Winter if you’re down under) is just flying by!  And, lucky for us we are ending July and beginning August on a wonderful high note – a New Moon and Mercury ending his feisty retrograde.  Yippee!!

Monday, July 29, 2019

Monday memeWe begin the work week with the Moon having come out of Gemini and into Cancer early in the morning.  That means for the next few days we are dealing with our emotional natures and feeling things deeply.  Also, because Cancer as a sign is opposing Capricorn, we are also going to be dealing with the South Node, Saturn and Pluto (today & tomorrow) with the accompanying power struggles, destruction/reconstruction of something in our lives and melancholy moments.  We should be used to this by now as we repeatedly experience the emotional ups and downs of this transit each month when the Moon goes through Cancer, but also as we had Venus, Mercury and the Sun there over the last few weeks.

Today also brings us Sun square Uranus, which can be disruptive.  We may experience sudden mechanical issues, upsets/arguments with people, and possible ego clashes. The best way through this energy is to intentional find positive ways to let go of any “steam” you have been building up and thus mute the possible “explosion” of energy outward to others.  We can also be a little more accident prone during this transit.  Take care and stay in consciousness today!

From a Human Design perspective, we are still in the Sun@Gate 31 – Leadership and the Earth@Gate 41-Fantasy. During this time, we may be invited to step up and take on a leadership role.  But only if invited … this is democratic leadership, not authoritarian.  Any power grabbing behavior would not be appreciated.  Also, with Earth at Gate 41, using our imagination to create a better world is favored.  Later we will be asked to actually enact this in the outer world.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy: Remember that the number is the Universal Energy and the word represents the Earth Energy of the day.

10 – Illuminating  – The universal energy of 10 is to manifest and build upon that which we have already begun.  It can be challenging for us if we have been ignoring our work up to this point.  With the Earth in Illuminating, we are approaching the day with lightness or humor and avoiding the trauma/dramas where possible.

Tuesday, July 30, 2019

Today the Moon in Cancer opposes Saturn, South Node and Pluto.  This is the 2nd day ofTues possible emotional volatility this week.  Stay cool and allow emotions to “inform” you about what is happening without directly reacting to whatever is happening.  Late in the day, the Moon will conjunct Mercury on his last day of retrograde.  Maybe a memory of something in the past or words spoken in the past may come up to you today.  Don’t dwell on the past, again, just let it inform you.  The Moon is also trine Neptune today and that can make for some difficulty in concentrating or focusing our minds.  It is an excellent day for tapping into your intuition.  The Moon

Human Design Venus moves into Gate 31 today.  Venus represents our relationships and in Gate 31 – Leadership, we are ready to share and delegate power and leadership.  The real question is to ask yourself, “How can I serve?” Whether that is in a leadership capacity or not, the question is a good one to ask of yourself.

The moon turns void of course at 8:33 PM Pacific Time this evening an remains VOC until tomorrow morning at 6:18 AM Pacific Time.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy today:  11-Choosing

11 is Illuminating in the Universal energy of the day.  Today brings light to help us see more clearly what is happening around us.

Choosing is the Earth Energy of the day.  Today is a great day to be able to experience collective healing and nurturing.  Settle differences today, but avoid being selfish and trying to get your own way.

Wednesday, July 31, 2019  

Hump DayWe’ve reached the high point of the week with both the second new Moon of July, this time in Leo and Mercury turning direct in Cancer happening almost simultaneously this evening. Let’s break down the day:

The Moon ends its void this morning at 6:18 AM PT/9:18 AM ET by moving into the sign of Leo in preparation for the new Moon phase. The Moon will conjunct Venus and square Uranus before its conjunction to the Sun today.

The Moon conjunct Venus in Leo is a cheerful and social connection.  We feel good and that translates outward from us to the people we are around. It’s a great time for decorating and shopping for things that beautify our lives.  Just watch the tendency to over-spend!

The Moon in Leo square Uranus in Taurus – We must be careful with this transit as it gives us an impulsive nature, and we may be on the more reactive side of anything that is said to us today.  We can be triggered easily, so now is a good time to exercise your breath before you say or do anything.

The New Moon

The new moon occurs at 8:12 PM PT/11:12 PM ET at 8 degrees Leo. What can we expect New Moonwith the new moon in Leo?  The new moon in Leo represents romance, love, and bringing joy to our lives. Leo as a sign also rules self-confidence and being recognized for our brilliance and our genius. This is a time of year for playfulness and enjoying life, and with no major aspects this month to annoy us, we are in for smooth sailing.

Things to do with this new moon:

  • express your creative genius and live your passions
  • celebrate play have fun
  • be generous with yourself, your time with those you love, and with your other resources.

Things not to do:

  • Do not be a shrinking violet – get out into the world.
  • Do not cross the line from self-centered to narcissistic or to selfishness and
  • Don’t shirk your leadership roles. Step up if you’re called upon to serve.

All in all, this is a wonderful New Moon and sets the stage for quite the pleasant month of August!

Mercury Direct

Mercury turns direct ending its 3-week retrograde phase at 8:52 PM Pacific Time. Together with the new moon this is now our green light to move forward and begin something new in earnest. One word of caution – Mercury will be crossing forward through territory he was already in … this is called the shadow period of the retrograde cycle.  You may have to finish up with some old business before you can move fully into the new.  By August 14th, Mercury will be in territory, officially ending this retrograde cycle.

Human design for this week: The new Human Design week begins today as well, with the Sun moving into Gate 33-Mindfulness & Remembering, and the Earth moving into Gate 19 – Sensitivity & Inclusion.  We are being reminded this week that the story of humanity is so much bigger than our singular perspectives are.  We are being asked to raise our consciousness to the level of Unity and begin to create the framework to experience that in our outer world.  By tuning into the inner dynamic and giving ourselves time to meditate, we can see the possibility for a new role for us in the grand tale of Humanity!

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:        12 – Exploring

The Universal Day 12 is Understanding.  We are helped to know and understand our world at a deeper level and to see our role in the grand play more clearly.

The Earth Energy – Exploring – is good day for travel and harmonizing different point of view.  Watch out for being overly critical or too rigid and set in your ways.

More on the upcoming month of August later this week!  For now, have a wonderful start to your week and prepare to have fun, to play and have a wonderful break from the crazy transits we had in July!

Blessings,

Weekly Dimensional Astrology

The Week of July 8-14, 2019

While this week doesn’t include an eclipse or a planetary sign change, we still have plenty of action taking place in the heavens above – Mercury and Mars come together, the Sun in Cancer opposes Saturn, the South Node and Pluto, and the Moon beginning the week in Libra, challenges the Cancer and Capricorn planets. Okay, so it’s going to be an energetic week!

Let’s break it down:

Monday, July 8, 2019

MondayToday is a great day to express yourself creatively and with your special uniqueness as Venus, in a sextile to Uranus, stimulates our need for beauty and excitement. 

Mercury Rx and Mars also meet up today in Leo and where there is unexpressed frustration, we might see verbal battles erupt.  The best way to work through this is to recognize that your frustration is your own and isn’t meant to be “vomited” outward onto others.  We all know that everyone isn’t in the “know” like we are so it is possible to be on the receiving end of someone else’s frustration. 

The extraordinary potential of this though, is that we can finally voice to ourselves what we have dared not say!  For instance, “I’m tired of this job and I’m going to finally do what I want to do.” or “I’m going to start treating myself better and follow my heart’s desires.”  So many ways in which we can wake up now to what is “right” for us.  We will have another chance later this Summer when Mars and Mercury meet up again in Virgo. 

The Moon in Libra is also in a good relationship with Mars and Mercury, so there really is a high side to all this verbal energy – whether it is clearing the air or stating something profound.  Just make sure that you are being responsible with your words. 

Pleiadian-Earth Energy today:  2-Devoting    Accepting two opposite perspectives within a community, family or nation without getting stuck in inappropriate loyalties.  

Human Design Astrology:  The Sun moves into Gate 53-Starting Things while the Earth moves into Gate 54-Ambition.  Both of these gates are on the Root center, which is the center for Stress, Endurance, and Impulse energy.  The impulse energy for the week is about new beginnings and how they are connected to a goal, desire or ambition.   

If you really want to dig deeper, then look at the Gene Keys 53 and 54, where Superabundance & Ascension are the highest states of these two gates. 

Tuesday, July 9, 2019     

Another energetic day is on tap as the Sun opposes Saturn today (from Cancer to TuesdayCapricorn) while the Moon in Libra challenges the Sun, Saturn and Pluto.  

We are familiar with the Sun square Moon as this is our “Crisis of Action.”  Having come through the new moon window last week, we are now faced with a potential block to our new beginning.  We have to consciously choose what path to follow next. 

With the Sun opposing Saturn, we are asked to stand in our authority and live from our true authenticity.  We can also experience low energy as the weight of duty and responsibility may just feel burdensome to us right now.  Don’t worry as this soon will pass.  Maybe take a break today and so something fun or something that doesn’t require a lot of energy.  

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  3-Illuminating.  Today we are inspired to create new things or to think in new ways.  This is also a day to shine a light into the dark spaces.  Maybe what heaviness we feel from the Sun-Saturn opposition is really about how we are aligned to the light or not?  

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

Hump DayWhile we slept, the Moon moved out of Libra and into Scorpio and the Sun moved into a trine with Neptune.  We are experiencing a bump up in the spiritual, psychic and intuitive energies today.  Don’t be surprised if you were having weird dreams, or if you feel suddenly tapped into Universal Consciousness.  Follow your inner knowing today.  

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  4-Choosing.  Focus on the foundations in your world today.  Build or rebuild in ways that are sustainable and strengthen.  The energy today is also good for healing, nurturing and settling differences.  

Thursday, July 11, 2019

Today could be an interesting day as Mars (planet of conflict and confrontation) squaresThankful Thursday (or challenges) Uranus, planet of surprises, shocks and awakening.  Adding to that is the Moon in Scorpio, a sign ruled by both Mars and Pluto, and what you get is the potential for erratic behavior and rebelliousness.  Best to channel your energy in ways that are positive and uplifting, rather than to give into the urges of craziness and then have to face the piper tomorrow.  Exercise or physical activity is a great way to let off some steam.  Just be careful that you don’t overdo anything. 

This could also be a highly creative day.  Harness the energy to bust through any places where you have been stuck.  But watch for destructiveness vs. constructiveness. 

The potential also exists today for escalations in the world outside of us.  Expect rebellion and revolution – in both it’s negative and potentially positive expressions.  Grandstanding, narcissism, arrogance and lack of humility could also exacerbate tensions already apparent in the world around us. 

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  5-Exploring.  Today is a day for surprises and unexpected things to occur that give us opportunities to change old patterns.  This is a great day for exploring, but watch for being rigid or too critical.  

Human Design Today:  Venus, planet of our relationships, values and finances moves into the Gate 39-Provocation.  Provocation serves a purpose – to wake us up!  Unfortunately we sometimes perceive these energies as an assault or affront to our personal lives.  Provocation is meant to move us from a “stuck” position to one of Freedom, as evidenced in the opposing Gate 55- which resonates to Freedom in the Gift and the Siddhic states. 

Friday, July 12, 2019 

FridayWe move into the end of the week with the Moon moving into Sagittarius, where adventure, exploration and seeking knowledge is important to us.  Today there is smooth energy between the Moon and Mercury and Mars.  Today comes as a relief to some of the more chaotic days earlier in the week.  

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  6-Healing.  Today is a great day for adventure and movement on all levels.  Engage in healing efforts – maybe traveling to the beach or other outdoor area to refresh yourself.  Watch for accepting too many responsibilities OR avoiding responsibilities.  

Saturday, July 13, 2019

The Moon in Sagittarius conjuncts Jupiter today making it a feel great kind of day!  AboutSaturday meme the only thing we have to be aware of is not overdoing anything.  Too much of anything is not a good thing, so keep everything proportional and sustainable.  The Moon is also square Neptune today triggering some “fogginess” in our thinking and calculating.  Consequently, this is not the best day to make big decisions.  So instead, have fun, play and save big decisions for another day!  

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  7-Seeing.  While today is not a good day to make decisions, our creative energies are working well!  New ideas abound today.  Just don’t try to take action on all of your ideas!  

Human Design Today:  The Sun moves into the Gate 62- Planning and the Earth into Gate 61-The Mystery.  The week ahead is one to be greeted with a Spirit of awe and wonder rather than anxiety and obsession with planning and details.  Enjoy the ride!

Sunday, July 14, 2019 

The Sun in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn today creating the potential for power struggles born of jealousy and manipulation in yourself or in others.  Recognize these shadow energies within yourself before taking action in ways that are harmful.  Use the Sun’s fire energy to transmute the shadow and leave you empowered.  Not everyone in the outer world is so inclined to use these energies for the good however, so we may see expressions of the negative.  Instead of empowerment, we may see ways in which disempowerment and dominance play out. 

Interestingly this is a prelude to the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on Tuesday where the Moon will be in conjunction to Pluto.  Emotions will be high, and reactive tendencies hold sway rather than common sense.  Try to stay above the fray and not get too serious about world events. 

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  8-Intuiting.  Connecting, communication and abundance are ours.  All we have to do is to tap into and recognize when it is right in front of us.  Reacting to the outer world is one of the shadows of the day.

Human Design today:  Mars moves into the Gate 33-Storyteller.  While Mars represents action and forward movement in Astrology, in Human Design it more represents our maturing process.  Maturing is related to our remembering the truth of who we are in this incarnation.  According to Richard Rudd in the Gene Keys, “There is no situation on Earth that cannot be used as a means to raise your frequency and open your heart to your inner Divinity.”  We are being moved to tell a new story, and it’s one of our remembering our truth and creating continued disinformation.  

So, while this isn’t necessarily a difficult week, there are some difficult transits, likely designed to prepare us for next week’s Lunar Eclipse.  Let go of what doesn’t serve you – the stories, the old emotions, grudges etc., and next week will be easy breezy!  

Blessings,

A Week of Change & High Energy

July will be one of the busiest months of year because it is eclipse season, and the eclipse are occurring across the axis of Cancer/Capricorn where there is already a lot of planets for the eclipses to trigger.  Add to that a Mercury retrograde from Leo back to Cancer, and you can just about envision some chaotic moments ahead for us. 

What’s Up in the Stars This Week?

Astrology, Human Design & Pleaidian-Earth Energy

July 1-7, 2019

 

Overview of the Week:

July will be one of the busiest months of year because it is eclipse season, and the eclipses are occurring across the axis of Cancer/Capricorn where there is already a lot of planets for the eclipses to trigger.  Add to that a Mercury retrograde from Leo back to Cancer, and you can just about envision some chaotic moments ahead for us.

Let’s take a look at the week ahead:

 Monday, July 1, 2019

LeoThe Moon begins the week in Gemini, and then shifts into Cancer for the New Moon.  Directly after the New Moon, the Moon will move opposite the planets in Capricorn, and we’ll be again dealing with the emotional energy around what is restructuring, reforming, and rebirthing in our lives.  Midweek to Friday July 5, the Moon will be in Leo, making our Independence Day celebrations here in the USA fun and playful.  The first weekend of the month, the Moon spends time in Virgo.  Great days to clean, clear, organize and purify your home and environment.

We start the month and 1st week off with Mars, planet of action, moving into the sign of Leo.  Until August 18, we are confident, strong-willed, and graced with physical stamina to get what we want and where we want to go.  Where this transit is playing out in your chart is where you will see progress pushed by will.

Gate 56 will be activated in your Human Design and that moves us to create a new story without the victim content!

Jupiter moves back into Gate 5- Universal Timing.  Our expansion then returns to learning to have patience, and to understand that the Divine works in its own timeline.  Watch out then for impatience, reactionary energy, and leaping into or out of things.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  8-Listening

Universal Energy 8:  Connecting – brings us accelerated communication and abundance on all levels. (from the Pleiadian-Earth Energy Calendar by Pia Orleane and Cullen Baird Smith)

Earth Energy – Listening (Akbal in Maya Astrology):  Practice empathy, care and responsibility.  Release pessimism, being controlling or feeling troubled.

 

Tuesday, July 2 is the New Moon Solar Eclipse at 10° Cancer.  Where that is in your chart

is where you have “jacked up” manifesting and intention setting power this month.  Keep in mind that this also widely opposes the South Node, Saturn, Pluto conjunction in Capricorn.  There is high potential for restructuring your world around kinder, gentler, and more family oriented values.

The Sun will be at Gate 39-Provocation and the Earth at Gate 38-Struggle at this new moon.  We will want to address where we feel trapped or where anger is bubbling up to the surface in our lives.  We don’t want to do this in order to beat ourselves up over it, but rather to discover where we may take dynamic action and rise to the level of liberation and becoming a Warrior of Light.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  9-Planting

Universal Energy 9 Harmonizing – This is a day for bringing more harmony into your life.

Earth Energy – Planting (Kan in Mayan Astrology):  Feeling lucky, energetic, good for new beginnings.  Watch out for immaturity and being irresponsible. (from the Pleiadian-Earth Energy Calendar by Pia Orleane and Cullen Baird Smith)

 

Hump DayWednesday, July 3 Venus moves into Cancer and takes on a more nurturing and protective stance, especially in relationships.  This is mothering energy and we will need to watch for out for a tendency to smother those we love.  (or being smothered by others) until July 27th when Venus moves into Leo.  That means that Venus will be opposing the South Node, Saturn and Pluto trio in Capricorn during these weeks as well.  Don’t be surprised if relationships are undergoing change either through your own or the other person’s empowerment.

Venus will be sitting at the Gate 15- Love of Humanity this week, prompting us to resonate more with unity than with separation, although the outer world may still be showing us division and polarity.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  10-Moving

Universal Energy 10-Manifesting:  Day for building upon what we have learned and manifesting from our previous work.  It can be a challenging day if we have ignored our work up to this point.

Earth Energy – Moving (Chicchan in Mayan Astrology):    Good for exploring and educating yourself.  Avoid confrontations, blame and competition.  (from the Pleiadian-Earth Energy Calendar by Pia Orleane and Cullen Baird Smith)

 

Thursday, July 4  – The Moon in Leo today conjuncts Mercury – perfect for the

celebratory 4th of July parties and BBQ’s here in the USA to celebrate Independence Day!  The Moon in Leo is playful and loves interaction, add Mercury in the mix and you have the possibility of many conversations and communication streams available to you.

We also enter into a long Void-of-Course Moon today from 11:25 pm PT to 9:26 pm PT on July 5.  (July 5 2:25 am to 12:26 am on July 6 for you in ET)

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  11 – Transcending  

Universal Energy 11 – Illuminating:  Brings light to help us see more clearly.

Earth Energy – Transcending (Cimi in Mayan Astrology):  A day to transcend differences, let go of what no longer serves.  Watch out for inappropriate hesitation.

 

Friday pandaJuly 5 – We’re in VOC (Void of Course Moon) all day. Not a great day to attempt to get anything of real import done.  Relax, enjoy, swim, play, or meditate.  Leave the big stuff for another day!

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  12 – Remembering

Universal Energy 12 – Understanding:  Helps us to understand everything more deeply.

Earth Energy – Remembering (Manik in Mayan Astrology):  Seek peace and engage in cooperation, but don’t become overly compromising.  (from the Pleiadian-Earth Energy Calendar by Pia Orleane and Cullen Baird Smith)

 

Saturday memeJuly 6 – The Moon is in Virgo today making it a great day to organize, clean, simplify and beautify.  She is also in great relationships to Venus, Uranus and the Sun today.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  13-Loving

Universal Energy 13 – Completion:  A time for completing all unfinished business and integrating it so that we can begin a new cycle tomorrow.

Earth Energy – Loving (Lamat in Mayan Astrology):  Be enthusiastic and productive without becoming competitive or aggressive.  (from the Pleiadian-Earth Energy Calendar by Pia Orleane and Cullen Baird Smith)

 

July 7 – Mercury Retrograde in Leo.  From now until July 31, Mercury will be retrograde Sundayin Leo eventually backtracking into Cancer.  Where this is in your astrology chart is where you may find yourself going backwards, having to slow down, or have to re-evaluate what you are doing.  Leo rules our identity and ego selves, while Cancer rules our family, traditions and foundation.

It’s interesting to note that in this Mercury retrograde the two signs involved are ruled by our two luminaries – The Sun and The Moon.  We are connecting deeply to both our souls and our egos during this Mercury cycle.  What will you discover there in terms of your desires, your Soul’s mission and your life journey?

The Moon spends the day in Virgo and is Void of Course from 9:50 am PDT to 11:07 pm PDT when it moves into Libra.  That leaves the bulk of the day without new Moon connections which spells the potential for a peaceful day.  Spend some time in meditation, study, yoga or other spiritual  or inner pursuits.

Pleiadian-Earth Energy:  1-Feeling

Universal Energy 1-Initiating:  Good day for starting new things – at least on paper or in idea form.

Earth Energy – Feeling (Muluc in Mayan Astrology) – We have a chance to deal with our emotions today.  Watch out for emotional reactivity though. (from the Pleiadian-Earth Energy Calendar by Pia Orleane and Cullen Baird Smith)

That’s it for this week.  I hope you all have a blessed week!

Love,

What’s Up in the Stars This Week?

The major focus of the week ahead of us is Venus & Mars both ingress new signs.  Venus moves from Aquarius to Pisces and Mars is released from the slower vibe of Taurus into the more mobile Gemini energy

Astrology for the Week of March 24-31, 2019

I hope everyone had a spectacular Spring or Fall Equinox and enjoyed the shifting energies of last week.  If you tuned into the spirit and quality of the time we just passed through, what you might find is that the world is awash in new potential, and we humans are not immune to the rush of newness.  After all, the 0 Aries point (known as Spring or Fall) marks the beginning of the astrological new year – all is indeed, new!

The major focus of the week ahead of us is Venus & Mars both ingress new signs.  Venus moves from Aquarius to Pisces and Mars is released from the slower vibe of Taurus into the more mobile Gemini energy.  And, perhaps best of all, Mercury turns from retrograde into Direct motion.  I would say that the character of the week or the buzz word of this week is CHANGE.

Let’s dig in and get the details:

SundaySunday, March 24, 2019 –  While I normally include Sunday in the previous week, I didn’t write a complete post for last week, so I want to make sure we start there.  The Moon is in Scorpio for the day and things are not light, airy and breezy, but more intense, passionate with hidden currents moving through the collective.  That doesn’t mean it’s a bad day, but rather it makes it a good day to do some personal processing work, or try to get to the bottom of something.

Mercury Rx conjunct Neptune – There are two distinct potentials to how this transit can play out today.  The positive expression is that it enables you to think and express yourself with subtlety, expressing ideas and feelings that you don’t always have access to.  Artistic and creative expression is heightened, but as you are easily accessing the subconscious realms, not everyone may understand what you are trying to convey.  During this time our imaginative and mysterious inclinations are favored.

The more negative expression of this transit occurs when our imagination pushes us into illusion or unreality.  We may feel like we can enact our fantasies, and then when this transit is over the reality of our folly reveals our confused and unclear thinking.  This is not likely going to be a day of making big, life-changing decisions.

Another difficulty with this transit is the possibility of communication missteps.  We aren’t thinking clearly and our words, though they sound good to us, are not being heard by other people in their best light.  What you say may be easily misunderstood, so take care to be clear when communicating anything of importance.

Hello MondayMonday, March 25, 2019 – While you slept, the Moon moved in Sagittarius.  I just love starting a work week with the Moon in go-ahead mood and in the sign of Sagittarius.  We are moved to see the humor in things today, and we greet the day with a sense of adventure and optimism.  About the only thing to watch out for is an over-optimistic view that focuses on big ideas, but has few details.  Remember that if you are embarking on something new now, it takes both the big picture and the details to make it complete.

Moon trine Sun – Today’s accomplishments feel good and provide the basis for what will come later.  Meeting new people today may have an impact on you that lasts.  If something feels right, then it probably is right.  Your job is to put your best foot forward and follow through!

Tuesday, March 26, 2019 – Venus ingress Pisces  Venus in Pisces

Today Venus leaves Transpersonal Aquarius for Transcendent Pisces. Themes and values like Love, Universal Love, Compassion, Forgiveness, Abundance & Flow emerge into our awareness.

Now Venus puts on her ethereal garb. In Pisces, Venus is exalted – meaning she is very comfortable in the sign.  She can get caught up in the magic of romance as love and attraction get idealized. The lines get blurred for us between what is real and what is imagined. On the other hand, we are more compassionate and sensitive to one another’s pain which moves us to altruism and acts of kindness and generosity. Venus is in Pisces until April 20.

Wed imageWednesday, March 27, 2019 – The Moon is Void-of-course until 7:08 am PT/10:08 am ET this morning before it moves out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn.  Everybody is into getting down to business for a couple of days, though that may not guarantee any business gets done. It’s all about the proper attitude and appropriate emotional expression.  Get your work done, then let your hair down.  The Moon favors innovation and creative thinking today as it has a good relationship with Venus and with Uranus.

The Moon also squares the Sun today and that means that we have reached the “Crisis of Consciousness” part of the lunar cycle. We are faced with the inner shifts that need to take place in order for us to complete our New Moon intentions.  Let go of fear, resistance to change and limiting thinking and you can soar!

Venus sextile Uranus – This combination might make it difficult for you to stay focused on work today as required by the Moon in Capricorn.  In that case, you might feel yourself counting down the moments until you can get out of the office and into party mode.  That would be the best way to utilize this energy.  Work where appropriate and play where/when appropriate!  Or mix the two if that seems like a viable option.

You might also attract new friends under this influence, and they may be people who have a revolutionary effect upon you – changing your outlook, attitude or life in some interesting way.  Everyone seems interesting and interested.

Thursday, March 28, 2019 –  Mercury Direct Today

Early this morning Mercury, planet of Communication, the Mind and Transportation, Thankful Thursdayleaves retrograde for direct motion. We can all breathe a sigh of relief – except we still have the “retroshade” to deal with for a few more weeks.  The messenger planet has been retrograde in Pisces since March 5 reminding us of our Spiritual, Intuitive and Esoteric connections.  Now with Mercury moving forward we can take the lessons and revelations that we discovered about ourselves out into the world.  It’s now the time to demonstrate your as the embodiment of Spirit.  When your mind forgets it’s connection, try asking the question, “What if ___________?”  For instance, What if I am the creator of my reality and can change my life positively? or What if we can live in a world of peace and harmony?  This evokes “allowing” energy and turns the mind toward more positive territory.  Perfect for taking Mercury’s retrograde lessons out to the world you live in!

The Moon is in Capricorn all day, and she is making good connections to Mercury & Neptune.  You might remember that on Monday these two (Mercury & Neptune) were in a conjunction and our imagination and creativity were stimulated.  Now is the time to take those ideas and turn them into concrete format.  Make a plan and execute the plan.  Later in the day the Moon conjuncts Saturn conferring focus, concentration and determination to our projects.

Friday, March 29, 2019

Friday panda

The Moon sits in Capricorn for most of the day today as it conjuncts Pluto, trines Mars and squares Uranus.  The day can alternate between powerful, confrontational, unpredictable and back again, with many possibilities in between!  By the end of today, you will be so ready for the weekend!

It’s not that it is a bad day or anything.  It is just demanding of our time and attention.  We might feel like pushing the river, when of course that might blow up in our faces.  There is strength and high energy available today.  And, as long as we aren’t frustrated or angry, we can put that to good use in getting things done.  If frustration/anger builds up today, release it through physical activity.  And Uranus adds an element of surprise and unpredictability to the day, so be ready for anything!

Mars will be sitting at 29 Taurus as he prepares to move into Gemini on Saturday/Sunday.  Pay attention to what is ending, what is in process of completion and what possibilities are opening up for you.  Prepare for an energetic shift in your ability to take action and move forward.

Saturday, March 30, 2019

Today the Moon in Aquarius playfully engages the Sun in doing things in new, creative, innovative, and unexpected ways.  Taking it easy and letting things happen will let opportunities continue to grow that are already underway. Situations beginning now will be cooperative and helpful to you as they progress. A general atmosphere of getting along together prevails and will continue to if you just go with the flow.

Late last evening on the West Coast and early this morning in the East, Mars made its move out of Taurus and into Gemini and changes the energy vibe for all of us.  While in Taurus our forward momentum was slowed down as we were having to be more deliberate in the execution of our plans.  After Mars being in Aries from January into early February, you might have felt stuck or stymied in getting what you wanted.  Well that changes now as Mars in Gemini is quick witted, quick to take action, and changeable.

While Mars is in Gemini we can become interested in many things, and dabble a bit with the new and unique.  We are more versatile and flexible, but also tend to lose focus or get bored easily.  We have to watch out for scattering our energy – this can be especially exacerbated as this is a Universal Year 3 where the natural tendency is to want to expand and explore, yet we can find ourselves scattered.

How do you deal with all this quixotic energy?  Make lists, start your day in meditation, if you feel yourself becoming unfocused or scattered, take a break and move your body, make a commitment to yourself to get what you have to do done before you move onto other things, and finally, be good to yourself if you end up straying – you might just stumble onto something wonderful for use later.

That’s it for the week everyone!  Not too bad, right?  Take care & enjoy …

Have a stellar week,

The Astrological Turning Point

We are in the closing two weeks of the astrological year as we wind down Piscean energy and get ready for the Astrological New Year and Aries energy. 

Weekly Astrology Forecast – March 11-17, 2019

Living Astrology logo

We are in the closing two weeks of the astrological year as we wind down Piscean energy and get ready for the Astrological New Year and Aries energy.  You could say that we have reached a turning point, where we are exiting the old and entering the new!  That makes this week’s transits important for us in terms of completion and preparation for the new astrological year.  

The early part of the week is calm enough, but as we reach Wednesday through Sunday, the energy ramps up forcing us to move through transformation and plan for what comes next.  

Let’s break down the week:

Monday – March 11, 2019

Hello MondayWe begin the week with the Moon in Taurus in a positive flow with Neptune, Saturn & Pluto, but challenging Mars in a conjunction.  Mars is in receptive, feminine Taurus, not an especially loved place for him.  The Moon’s conjunction reminds Mars that emotions are an important expression of life, but controlling one’s temper is also valuable. 

Tuesday – March 12, 2019   Tuesday

The Moon is Void-of-course from 2:31 am PT until 8:48 am PT, and then moves into the sign of Gemini.  Words and messages abound for the next couple of days. It’s a good time for making new contacts and developing old ones, and for putting your finger on feelings that have been waiting for the right kind of expression. Say what you mean, but don’t be afraid to change it, refine it, on the fly.  Watch for a tendency to scatter your energy or lose focus.  

Wednesday – March 13, 2019

Wed imageToday the Moon is in Gemini all day so we continue the conversation, sharing of information and curiosity.  The Moon is in a beautiful angle today with both Venus & Neptune, giving us a lift spiritually and injecting love into the energy of the day. 

The Sun is empowered today by a sextile to Pluto and a square to Jupiter.  We have the stamina to follow through with our commitments.  The only thing to watch out for is the tendency to want to over-do things – follow this easy rule K.I.S.S. – Keep It Simple & Sustainable.  (I bet you thought I was going to say something else!)

Thursday – March 14, 2019

The Moon is Void-of-course from 5:31 am to 2:49 pm PT as it prepares to shift out of Thankful ThursdayGemini and into Cancer. Expect feelings to get a little more intense for the next few days, as the Moon is in her own home sign.  Bottled-up emotions that people have been trying to keep a lid on can come spilling out. It’s hard to say what you mean (especially with Mercury retrograde) so it is best to be utterly sincere but not say too much that might set off hidden nerves or be seen as meddling.

Mars trine Saturn  – Slow & steady wins the race!  There is no need to be in a rush or hurry now.  Take deliberate action forward and see you goals come to life!

Mercury conjunct Sun – This signals that we are about 1/2 way through the Mercury Rx cycle.  Now Mercury picks up his marching orders from the Sun, compelling us all to fix what needs to be fixed, and then be ready in the coming weeks to soar.  Don’t be concerned if a bit of crisis or turbulence accompanies this time.  It will all sort itself out!

Friday, March 15, 2019

FridayThe Moon in Cancer trines Neptune and opposes Saturn today.  We must be grounded in our Spiritual selves in order to manage the changing currents of the day.  Your intuition is high today, and choosing to listen will be a Godsend for you.  At times today, the energy may turn melancholy or low – don’t be alarmed, it’s just temporary. 

Mercury square Jupiter – Suddenly, the best laid plans are turned upside down, mostly because there are nonworking components that simply keep popping up.  Basically, it’s a time for debugging and finessing new operations and upcoming launches into shape. A better time for sorting things out than for starting anew.

Weekend blog

Saturday, March 16, 2019

The Moon is void-of-course from 11:03 am PT to 5:57 pm PT today, and that means we are not really in a position to start something new or get a lot done.  If you must get something done today, do it early.  All of the Moon’s most juicy contacts happen before its VOC – high energy, empowered feelings, upbeat conversation, and possible unexpected opportunities (or conflict too….just sayin…) are all possible.     

After 5:57 pm PT, the Moon will move into the sign of Leo.  If you follow the flow for the next couple of days, creative and loving feelings can make for an almost party atmosphere.  Make a breakout, or just let the rising tide carry you along.  Be in it for the fun, play and excitement! 

Sunday, March 17, 2019 

St. Patrick's Day CloverHappy St. Patrick’s Day everyone & it should be a wonderful day with the Moon in Leo accentuating a fun and playful atmosphere, and the Moon literally not making anyone unhappy at all today!  There is one transit that we need to be aware of. 

Mercury Rx sextile Mars – Making the most of of procedures that worked in the past, turns into productive and successful ventures.  When things are in order, all runs so smoothly that you hardly notice how well it’s going. It might be a time to take a second look at what it takes to get it right so you can better maintain your path forward. 

Here’s wishing you all a stellar week!

Blessings,

Astro-Energy Forecast 11-26 to 12-2-18

This week the Moon moves through Cancer, Leo, Virgo and Libra.  From these signs, Luna makes a lot of connections this week, especially on Thursday, affecting our personal emotional expression.  Adding to the Moon’s personal focus, most of the planets that make waves for us this week are also the personal planets – Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus & Mars.  Where things in week’s past have been out of our hands or were more trans-personal or collective in nature, this week is more focused on our personal choices and actions. 

Week of November 26 – December 2
 
 
This Week’s Moon:  Moon in Cancer, Leo, Virgo & Libra
Monday:  Mercury Square Mars
Tuesday:  Mercury conjunct Sun, Mars sextile Saturn, Mercury conjunct Jupiter
Wednesday:  No New Connections
Thursday:  Luna makes 7 Connections 
Friday:  Venus opposing Uranus
Saturday:  Mercury retrogrades back into Scorpio (repeat) 
Sunday:  Venus moves forward into Scorpio (repeat), Sun square Mars
 
 
This week the Moon moves through Cancer, Leo, Virgo and Libra.  From these signs, Luna makes a lot of connections this week, especially on Thursday, affecting our personal emotional expression.  Adding to the Moon’s personal focus, most of the planets that make waves for us this week are also the personal planets – Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus & Mars.  Where things in week’s past have been out of our hands or were more trans-personal or collective in nature, this week is more focused on our personal choices and actions.  So let’s break it down by days:
 
 
Monday – The Moon is in Cancer, and at least for those of us in the USA, we may be wishing to stay home one more day to enjoy the holiday!  Our instincts may have been correct because the Moon is in challenging aspect today to Pluto (opposition) and squaring both Venus and Uranus.  There is the possibility for intensity in our relationships at work and with challenges from both Venus & Uranus, there may be unexpected outcomes if we get overly emotional.  Mercury rx is also squaring Mars today, so we must watch our words, actions and emotional outbursts.  If you can stay home an extra day this week, make it today!  IF not, then just be aware of the impact you have on others.  If you overreact or speak first think later, this can be a most uncomfortable day.  However, if you can swim in the neutral zone today, you will do just fine!
  
 
Tuesday – The Moon transitioned out of Cancer and into Leo while you were sleeping.  And we have another highly energetic day with many of the inner planets dancing with one another.  The difference between yesterday’s energy and today’s is that the planets involved are making positive and beneficial connections to one another, so today feels completely different!  The Moon flows with Jupiter, Mercury and the Sun today aligning our emotions and mind allowing us to get some things done!  Yay we have been waiting for a day like this!! 
 
 
Mercury conjuncts the Sun today in what is called the “inferior conjunction.”  From our viewpoint on Earth, Mercury stands between us and the Sun.  This signals the beginning of the Mercury cycle (even though the little messenger planet is still retrograde) and the beginning of the Mercury cycle tells our minds that it is almost ready to hatch a new direction, a new plan, or a new way of being, thinking and acting.  Wherever this is happening in your personal astrology chart, tells you where you are ready to make the transition into new territory.  This is exciting news because we have been feeling stuck, rudderless and even directionless.  And, even though it isn’t time to take action yet, we may feel buoyed by knowing what direction we are going to move in.  By the way, this is a process that occurs possibly before, during or just after this connection is exact.
 
Mercury is also conjunct Jupiter today making this even more of a “new beginning” feeling.  Just remember that while Mercury is retrograde, don’t start something new, however, make the plans for something new to begin once the retrograde completes December 6!  Jupiter’s connection here makes us feel optimistic in a way that we might not have felt in a long time.  Take it easy and don’t go overboard!  Keep everything you do and or plan to do within reason!  
 
 
Wednesday –  There are no major changes in energy today.  Given that yesterday and tomorrow’s planets are highly active, this is a good thing! The Moon continues through Leo and we’re feeling good about ourselves and our prospects for the future.  This is a great day to play, be generous with your time and have some fun! 
 
 
Thursday –  Today the Moon in Virgo is all business, and she is challenging and challenged by just about every planet in some way.  The Moon is in great aspect to Venus, Uranus & Saturn today.  We may feel like time is on our side for once and we may even see the fruits of some of our labors.  However, Luna is challenged by Jupiter, Mercury, the Sun and Mars today.  We must have plans to move forward before we move forward … at least that is what seems to be being communicated to us.  Jupiter & Sun in Fire sign Sagittarius give us the energy we need to move forward and the optimism to see it done, but Mars (a fire planet) is sitting in water and has his action slowed and with Mercury still retrograde we are cautioned to hold on just a while longer.  
 
There is still much to be done however.  We have all the “behind the scenes” stuff we can be working on… writing copy for our new websites, writing scripts for videos we want to produce, setting the action steps up for our goals, etc.  Moon in Virgo is in Earth … pragmatic, analytical and deliberate!  Resist flying off in all directions and you will be rewarded later when your plans execute exactly as you had envisioned them.        
 
The Weekend 
Friday –  The Moon in Virgo all day provides the energy for getting things done!  Organize, plan, analyze and clean up your desk or office or home.  Today’s moon energy helps us to clear away anything that we need to do before the weekend!  Take advantage of Virgo’s ruling planet Mercury in retrograde as it gives us the ability to re-think & re-evaluate our plans.  I know … re-arrange the furniture!  Make room at home for your Christmas Tree! 
 
 
Venus also opposes Uranus today giving us a break from the norm in our routines.  There is also the possibility that we meet someone new that has an impact on us.  Watch out for upsets within your relationships as well.  With Mercury in retrograde, words can come out wrong, and your intended actions can be misinterpreted.  On the other hand, Venus in the last degrees of her own sign, Libra and Uranus back in Aries make for excitement and trying new things.  
 
Saturday   – The Moon moves into lovely Libra early this morning and puts emphasis on our partnerships and relationships.  Things may take a steamy turn for the better later when Mercury retrogrades backward into Scorpio and turns our minds to passion and love.  Mercury Rx in Scorpio can also cause our minds to focus on what we don’t have – looking for a love interest or relationship?  Put yourself out there in the world where the people are you would like to meet, instead of staying in your mind and “re-minding” yourself of what you don’t have.  
 
Sunday –   There is sexual tension in the air today!  The Sun squares Mars, which can escalate our frustrations if we don’t have an appropriate channel to dispel the energies, can either make for a great action day or an anxious & upsetting day.  Venus, moving forward now, changes signs into Scorpio and joins Mercury Rx in the sign of passion, sex, and intensity.  The tension could be palpable … if sex isn’t in the cards for you, then exercise is!  You have to be able to move some energy to alleviate the stressful energy today.  I would love to say to do some yoga, or meditation, but I think the energy is too high for that (trying to sit still and be quiet could just add to your frustration when you can’t achieve that kind of mindfulness.)  Dance, sing, hike, spin, jog … just move your body!       
 
Have a great week! 
Janet

Astrology-Human Design Nov 5-11, 2018

Week of November 5-11, 2018 

month-november-autumn

Highlights for this Week: 

Moon in Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn
Uranus Rx into Aries
New Moon in Scorpio
Jupiter into Sagittarius
Venus rx Trine Mars
Sun sextile Pluto
+Election Day
+Veteran’s Day
Wow what a list of astrological events characterize the upcoming week!  Add to that Election Day in the USA, and this first full week in November promises to be very active!
  
We begin the week on Monday with the Moon in Diplomatic, Political and Relationship oriented Libra until early Tuesday (Election Day in the USA) morning.  It’s too bad that the Moon cannot stay there for the entire day as it would likely make for more harmony!  But, on Tuesday morning 5:02 am PST/8:02 am EST, the Moon moves into Scorpio and the S*#! gets deep, passion-filled and intense!  Add to that Uranus in retrograde moving backward into revolutionary Aries and it feels like this would be a great day to turn off the TV, your Phone, Social Media and just pretend that we are in an ideal world of Love & Joy, as likely the news is going to be going back and forth with rhetoric from candidates, news anchors reporting on events, and political pundits spinning stories & justifications.  UGH! 
One more thing to note, the Moon in Scorpio is transformative, and as such, we are likely going to see the political landscape changed when we wake up to the New Moon in Scorpio on Wednesday.  New beginnings, a fresh start, hope & optimism for a future less divisive and polarizing?  It is certainly possible, and I feel like Jupiter’s move into Sagittarius on Thursday will fuel some optimism and hope for the future.  It is going to be up to each and every one of us to heal the division within us in order to see that reflected to us in the outer world.  We can and must engage kinder, gentler and more loving energy with one another!  Now is the time!
  
Let’s get comfortable with Sagittarius energy as it is with us for awhile now.  Jupiter moves into Sag Thursday morning at 4:36 am PST for a 1 year stay, followed by the Moon’s move into Sagittarius just 7 hours later.  The Moon nurtures and feeds our souls emotionally and reminds us of what is being reflected to us.  As Luna greets Jupiter, we may feel emotionally raw or at the other end emotionally exhilarated.  Just remember to take care of yourself and be kind to everyone you meet today as we try on this new energy of Largess, Generosity and Growth.  No need for self-righteous zealotry … can’t we all just grow up and get along?? Jup in Sag
We go into the weekend with the Moon in Sagittarius until Saturday evening.  As the Moon sets the emotional tone for the day based on the sign it is in, then we can expect the ending of the week and Saturday to be good for getting outdoors, putting your restless energy into motion and enjoying freedom!  Of the two days this weekend, Saturday is the one to play & enjoy.  Things get more serious Saturday evening and on Sunday when the Moon moves into Capricorn.  Finish the weekend by doing the things you have procrastinated on doing – you’ll feel so much better and feel accomplished when you see the results of your taking the initiative to get things done!  Since this is Veteran’s Day, it is also a good day for somber remembrance, and for recognizing those who have served their country well.  Acknowledge a Vet, give them a pat on the back, or a huge Thank you for your Service!  That would be a nice way to end the week! 
Blessings to all,
Janet

New Moon in Aries – Power Braking Our Way Forward

New Moon in Aries – Power Braking Our Way Forward
Power braking (also called Burning Out) is a technique used in automatic transmission cars where you keep one foot on the brake and another foot on the gas pedal revving up the engine, for what is presumably a fast start – screeching tires and all!  Not only is this terrible for the cars tires and transmission but it resembles the high anxiety a person feels while waiting for the opportunities to crack open.  It’s a feeling of being all dressed up with no where to go.  Yet, there is always the possibility that we could release the brake and go, go , go!
Such is the power and energy of Sunday’s New Moon.  Just writing this, I can feel all the anxiety out there in the collective right now.  So, let’s dig into what is happening and how we can use this energy to our benefit.
Vroom … Vrooom … SCREECH! 
The New Moon in Aries is the unofficial “start” of the Astrological new year!  We technically began the Astro New Year when the Sun crossed into 0 Aries with the Spring equinox, but it is generally around the time of the New Moon in Aries when we see the real potential for what is coming ahead. The lag time between the Sun at 0 Aries (on March 20) until the new moon at 26 Aries (April 15) is why we are feeling that revving up energy, but have been unable to release it.  Exacerbating this is the fact that Mercury has been  retrograde in Aries, so even if we did attempt a new start, we found ourselves having to re-do something or discovering that even our best made plans fell apart.  (vroom vroom … screeeech).
This new moon cycle, just happens to be a doozie, with many other planets involved in a simultaneous dance of excitement, intrigue and anxiety!  Ironically, just hours before the New Moon occurs, Mercury moves to station Direct.  YAY … or so we think, until we realize that any planet changing directions, takes some time to pick up speed and really move … thus why we have shadow times before and directly after a retrograde!
The new moon is official on Sunday, April 15 at 6:57 pm PDT/9:57 pm EDT at 26 Aries.  The New Moon is the time each month when the Sun and Moon are in a conjunction opposing Earth.  That means that if the Sun & Moon are in Aries, then the Earth is in Libra.  The potential of bold action and new beginnings must be met with balance – no headlong rushing into something without consciousness!  I know it is very tempting to break the impasse we have been feeling with immediate action, but in doing so, we may miss the juice of what is available for us.  This is because there are so many other factors affecting this Moon.
 “Be Bold, not Impulsive!” 
Uranus is engaged in this New Moon.  Both the Sun and Moon will be at 26 Aries while Uranus is at 28 Aries.  That means the new moon is applying pressure to Uranus – planet of Awakening, Surprises, and Breakthroughs!  If we act impulsively now, the results may not be what we expect!  Like the rubber band when stretched too far will snap you instead of your intended target, so will Uranian surprises “snap” you if you push ahead without proper consideration or consciousness.  Conversely, waiting for the right opportunities and right timing, Uranus can provide stellar results for having just a bit more patience!  Either way, be prepared for possible surprises and shocks as Uranus energy is totally unpredictable!
The Sun/Moon combo are also engaged with Eris – Goddess of Discord.  She is a “pot-stirrer” and she can be a bit of a beach!  But she also shows us where we are not “right” with ourselves, with our values or with the current flow of the energy.  Thus, if you continue to try to push forward into the wrong direction, wrong energy, she will cause trouble.  For example, I’m thinking that Trump’s actions against Syria holds some serious blow-back, some unintended consequences may be coming.  Such is the case with Eris!
Mars, Black Moon Lilith and Pluto are also engaged in this New Moon cycle.  They are conjunct one another, each of them squaring the Moon/Sun combination. Mars and Pluto in conjunction are combustible, powerful, and transformational ( if not a little unforgiving as well), throw in Black Moon Lilith and we get to really dive into our collective and individual shadows for the purpose of evolution.  This represents a huge opportunity for humanity to re-align, re-structure, re-evaluate our actions on the world stage as well as in our personal lives.  It’s juicy, disconcerting, and so rich in potential!
Cosmic Fresh Breath  
There are other highly energetic, yet more enlightening aspects to this New Moon that I want to mention.  The Sun-Moon combination will be in favorable aspects to both the Galactic Center and the position of the February 15, 2018 Solar Eclipse point.
The Galactic Center is a source of wonderful, yet highly charged, energy frequencies that move us toward Evolution and Enlightenment – not just as individuals, but as a Universe.  Everything is bathed now in the current of change, mutation and positive potential – it’s like a cosmic fresh breath.  If we can harness the energy we are being gifted during this time, the results may be spectacular… evolution on a level that sets the stage for our living from common values and LOVE energy.  Even for those who are not so conscious about what the energies are doing here, there is still the possibility for an evolutionary leap in their own consciousness where they can see the err in their ways and open to new pathways of BEingness.
We were all gifted with a powerful portal in February with a solar eclipse at 27 Aquarius.  Aquarius, ruled by the planet Uranus, which as discussed is also involved in this New Moon, may be the source for further awakening and easing of the way forward into the new paradigm.  The question is …. what new story do you want to create?  And, do you want to take the path consciously, or be forced through it kicking and screaming?  The choice as always is ours …
I wish you all many blessings in this powerful time, and I choose to see us all in our highest and best, loving selves!
Next Up?  Chiron’s move into Aries at Crisis of Action point of this New Moon cycle.  Until then …
Much Love,
Janet
