Mars into Leo – Prepare to Live Your Passions


Moon in Gemini – Be Sociable & Conversational

The Moon moves into Gemini this morning. 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.

What’s Up in the Stars Today?

Astrology & Human Design for the Week Ahead

Happy Monday Everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I know I did – and I got a lot accomplished!

This is week two of the quieter energies for the month of May – the calm before the storm, if you will.  But, this week does have some challenges ahead, as well as some wonderful opportunities!  Yes!

We start the week with the Moon in Aquarius giving most of us a unique and off-key viewpoint.  I thought it was funny this morning when some FB posts that I was seeing were all about turning things upside down to get a different perspective – that is so Moon in Aquarius 🙂  The rest of the week, Luna travels through Pisces and then into Aries, which we’ll talk about more as the week moves on.

Watch your words today and for the next couple of days as Mercury has come to an exact square (90 degree, challenging aspect) with Pluto.  Words can empower or slice and dice, and they may be misinterpreted – especially on social media where it is difficult to gauge the tone and emotion behind the words.  Be wise then about what you say, when you say it, and maybe realize that you can be misunderstood.  Have compassion for your fellow humans as well, they may not tune in to astrological wisdom and have no clue about what is happening 🙂

I’ll let you enjoy the rest of the week’s information in the video!





Surprises or Upsets Today?

Today the Moon and Uranus come together to create either surprises or upsets, depending upon your viewpoint.  The Moon in late degrees of Sagittarius is completing her travels and preparing to move into Capricorn later this evening.  Tomorrow will be a much different day, so enjoy the more sociable energies today! 

Hello everyone,

Today the Moon and Uranus come together to create either surprises or upsets, depending upon your viewpoint.  The Moon in late degrees of Sagittarius is completing her travels and preparing to move into Capricorn later this evening.  Tomorrow will be a much different day, so enjoy the more sociable energies today!

In today’s Morning MetaCafe, we also explore the upcoming Mars retrograde through chart readings.  Wow – I gained so much from working through these charts!  That’s something I want everyone to understand.  Hearing what is happening in someone else’s chart can be very eye-opening for yourself, as you may recognize something that is going on in your life and find new meaning in your experience!

Here is today’s video:

Today’s Daily Astrology-Human Design-Oracle Energy Report

Today’s energy is still much less intense than last week’s!  The Moon is in Sagittarius for the entire day, leading us to desire the experience of more Freedom, Adventure and Social connection.  We may even feel like exploring new ideas and topics today.  After yesterday’s video on Starseeds, I was definitely out there looking for more information and knowledge!

The Moon is also in an opposition to Venus this morning, bringing us to the core of our values … to our soul’s yearnings and desires.  Mercury, messenger planet, is in a favorable aspect to Luna today as well.  As Mercury rules communication and the Moon rules our emotion, conversations may be more emotionally tinged today.  Just be sure to not let the emotion of the moment come out in your words in hurtful ways!  Neptune is squaring (challenging) the Moon today to rise up to the highest mind, to the divinity within when dealing with the world today.  See things from unconditional LOVE rather than the more narrow, human mind.

In the video this morning, (see above) I talk a lot about sunspot activity and its relationship to cooler weather on Earth.  Is this possibly a feedback loop of sorts that allows a balance on Earth?  I suggest that that is exactly what happens with rhythmic frequency.  Is it also possible that low sunspot activity allows more of the cosmic rays that produce evolution on our planet to break through?  Evidence suggests this is true, and with a huge energetic shift coming this month when Uranus breaks out of Aries and moves into Taurus, we may just see some movement on our evolution – especially monetary & values.

The North Node and Ceres are conjunct today as well.  SWEET!  I love this as Ceres represents Mother Earth in her Abundance!  The North Node represents Destiny and is moving us forward along our life path trajectories – as individuals and as a collective – could it be that we will be ready in the very near future to change our values around the environment and how we take care of our beautiful, blue planet?  It certainly is possible!

The aspects that are being made by the North Node and Ceres right now suggests we must first begin within ourselves … it is the personal planets (inner planets) – the Moon, Mercury, Venus and the Sun – that are affected and that always brings the responsibility for change to us as individuals!  We may not be able to make corporations, Congress or our President understand the dynamics of preserving, purifying and beautifying our world, but we can use our resources to demonstrate our value in taking care of the Earth.  Use your dollars to buy products that are environmentally friendly, use your time to educate your family-friends-community on how to recycle, or in other ways to support a healthy environment.  Get involved on a level that is individual … the larger world changes take place as a reflection of what we ourselves change within.

I hope you enjoy the video and have a wonderful day!



Daily Astrology-Human Design-Oracle Energy Report for 2-12-18

Hello Everyone,

I was feeling better this morning so I actually did the morning energy report via video 🙂



I hope you all have a wonderful day and see you tomorrow morning 🙂



Weekend Astrology-Human Design-Oracle Energy Report

Good morning everyone,

I’m back again in writing to tell you about the energies for the upcoming weekend!  Typically I do this in video form on my Living Astrology FB page (if you haven’t seen the daily energy reports, go to at 8:00 am PT each weekday morning) however, I am still a bit under the weather today.

We start the day with the Moon still in Sagittarius with a bit of a twist.  Early in the day, the Sun semi-squares (a bit of a challenge) Saturn, and this aspect can dampen our feelings of optimism and adventure and feel more restrictive.  Take heart though, by afternoon this feeling will pass and we will be restored to our excitement for the weekend!  Yay!

Saturday the Moon is still in Sagittarius, so at least we still feel good about what is going on in our lives, and frankly, this is the better day of the weekend for social engagements and having fun.  The Moon will pass over the Galactic Center later in the day.  My advice – have pen and paper in hand for some stellar information may be transmitted to you then!  Or at the very least, tune in to what your environment may be showing you.  When our Moon crosses the GC we can receive some cosmic ray energy and encoded in those waves are information on our evolution and direction … if only we are ready to decode it!

I don’t talk about this much, but the Moon will also be Void of Course from 11:39 am ET until the time it moves into Capricorn at 9:22 pm ET.  Typically this means that not much will move forward during this time.  It can be a bit of a lazy time.  Perfect for the weekend!  The last contact the Moon makes though is with Uranus.  So don’t let something surprising, unexpected, or crazy bring you down.  Be cool and calm – or get crazy excited if you win the lottery 🙂

Saturday Venus moves into Pisces where she will stay until March 6, 2018.  Venus in Pisces in ready to escape into romance and the ideal of love.  She paints her canvas will all the colors of what she sees to be “real” about her relationships, money and values.  Unfortunately, Pisces can sometimes be a bit of an escapist dreamer who refuses to see the truth.  If you are moving into a new romance or relationship during this time, please go in with both eyes wide open!  At the end of this transit, Mr. or Ms. Right could be revealed to be the exact opposite.  Guard against over spending during this time as well. On the other hand, Venus in Pisces restores flow – of money, emotions, love, etc.  Just don’t fall into the trap of escapism and confuse the ideal with the real.

Sunday the Moon is in Capricorn and will be headed for a rendezvous with Saturn and the Black Moon Lilith late in the day and into Monday.  This is not an especially feel good time – it may be that we have some vague feelings of something that isn’t right, or we may just not feel our best.  But, if you put yourself in the position of doing something useful and purposeful, you will feel like you have accomplished something and avoid that sense of dread.

All in all – not a bad weekend. I think the oracle card I pulled for the weekend sums it up nicely – FLEXIBLE.  By the way, I was remiss yesterday in letting people know what deck I have been using for the oracle card reading.  It’s called Wisdom of the Oracle by Colette Baron-Reid, and it is beautiful and mind-blowing!

The card dropped out of the deck upside down – what she calls in Protection.  The message then is to allow Spirit to be the great mediator in any places in your life where you have become rigid.  Is it in your mind?  In your heart?  In your relationships?  In your beliefs?  Being rigid sets you up for a fight, but being Flexible allows for possibilities to enter that you might not have seen before.  Relax and repeat – “This or something better is manifesting for me now.”

Flexible oracle card

Oh and as a bonus, my friend Michelle reminded me the other day that the Goddess Guidance oracle deck by Doreen Virtue has a beautiful card for Vesta. Since we were talking about her this week, she suggested that I add her picture in the post too.  So Michelle – just for you:

VestaShe is gorgeous!

I wish everyone a wonderful day, and blessed weekend!  I hope to return to video on Monday.

Much Love & Many Blessings,


Daily Astrology-Human Design-Oracle Report for Thurs. 2-8-18

Good morning everyone, here is your Daily Astrology-Human Design-Oracle Energy Report.

Usually I come to you first thing in the morning via video, but this morning I am feeling under the weather, and my voice does not want to cooperate without sending me into coughing.  So, instead I am writing what is up today.

The Moon has moved into Sagittarius this morning, shifting the energy from Scorpio’s depths, to Sagittarius’ more adventurous energy.  The Moon’s energy goes quite nicely with the Sun, Venus & Mercury all in Aquarius today as well.  Sagittarius is known as the no “bullshit” sign and often speaks directly and bluntly.  So, today be careful with how you say what you say to avoid hurting other people’s feelings.  And, if you are on the receiving end of someone’s bluntness, practice forgiveness as they know not what they do!

Later in the day, the Moon will hook up with Mars, now at 8 Sagittarius, and the two energies combine to really push us to do something exciting, out of the ordinary, even risky.  Now I’m not saying that risk isn’t a good thing at times, but be a little cautious about what kind of action you are taking.  Be willing to take a calculated risk – one that has you moving a little outside of your comfort zone, but not something that throws over everything else in your life!  I would also be remiss if I didn’t warn you to follow your Type, Strategy & Authority when making decisions to do anything!  If you do not know what I mean by that, then you need to get your FREE copy of your Human Design chart.

One more interesting thing about the Moon in Sagittarius – she (the Moon) is moving through Jupiter’s territory (Sagittarius) and that also tends to bring us luck, optimism, and prosperity.  Very interesting … because the card I pulled this morning for everyone is Treasure Island!!  This card speaks to prosperity and abundance and feeling like you have hit the jackpot in some ways in your life – maybe monetary, opportunities, new career, business growth – the possibilities are endless.  The card says that we are entering into a phase of true prosperity and golden opportunities!  I love that!  It also reminds us to follow our intuition, watch for the signs around us and take right action.

Treasure Island oracle

BTW – I knew this was going to be a magical kind of day because when I walked to the door to say goodbye to my husband this morning, there were 12 bald eagles soaring in the air right in front of me!  They took my breath away!  And, even though I don’t consciously know what that means, I do know that Eagle represents Great Spirit, and Spirit was showing me something today!  If anyone has any ideas, please post them on the Living Astrology Facebook page 🙂

That’s it from me today.  I hope to be able to join you all tomorrow morning with the Daily Energy Report LIVE on the Living Astrology Facebook page at 8:00 am PT.  Until then I wish everyone a stellar day 🙂
