Friday, December 25, 2020



We begin this week with the Moon in talkative and curious Gemini in opposition to Venus in horizon expanding Sagittarius and squaring up to elusive and confusing Neptune. This can see the morning hours get off to an inquisitive, (if rather perplexed) start. Perhaps a bit emotional, scattered, or overwhelmed. Anytime Neptune is involved it calls for compassion and understanding, -for ourselves as well as for others.  A growing enthusiasm takes hold as the Moon forms a sextile to action oriented Mars around 11 AM PST. This can see communication initiatives take on more importance, and there may be a creative element to this. This can also see us more curious in general about things going on in our local environment, neighborhood, or social medias, etc, and there can be a busy, multitasking kind of energy, with a lot of comings and goings. With the lunar square to Neptune until early evening, in some ways there can just be more people watching than actual engagement as the Neptune square is more prone to privacy and reclusiveness, but this relents in late afternoon.  This leaves the Moon and Mars nicely synced up and confidence, passion, and enthusiasm about new initiatives and the changes unfolding, can be growing. The Sun in Capricorn moving in to perfect a trine to Uranus in Taurus harkens changes that have been a long time coming, and new foundations are being laid down while Mars spends it’s final week in Aries. A radically different landscape will be the result. Thoughts, ideas, and communications today can stoke our enthusiasm and add to our motivation. With Mercury in serious and disciplined Capricorn, and Mars in the late degrees of Aries squaring Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto, and the Moon in Gemini forming a sextile to it, this can see certain things being gone over and over again, or we are going from the planning and thinking phase of something to the doing, -a sort of mastery and graduation process is underway. Some people are learning new equipment, technology, skills, some people are cramming for tests, pumping out a creative project, some people are studying other people, (like... literally lurking the fuck out of them, I'm just saying), -but whatever the case is for you personally, Mars is bringing everyone a milestone of some sorts. We are leveling up. A boulder we have pushed up a hill for a long time is about to be rolled to the top of that hill. A new skill is being mastered, and new foundations are being laid. Though it’s clear that we will need courage, and this is brought home by the Moon’s square to Chiron in Aries as it heads towards emotionally sensitive, and security oriented Cancer for the Full Moon tomorrow in the wee hours.  This mathscape clearly illustrates that we are going to be doing things a little bit (ok, a lot) differently going forward.  In some ways, this can make us feel pretty vulnerable, but the innovative currents are strong, and will only become stronger as time goes on. This is the final week of Mars in Aries, so this is a pinnacle week for more reasons than one. An emotional and foundational renewal is occurring. 


Today see’s the Full Moon in Cancer at 7:28 PM PST. This Full Moon opposes the Sun and Mercury in Capricorn, sextile Uranus, and squares Chiron. This signifies renewal on a lot of levels, and perhaps even for some, a wrenching away from the constraints of the past. There’s something very liberating to this energy, though for some, it can be a sensitive time as well, as old, outworn attachments are released. Emotionally, this can be an exciting time, that can see us drawn towards connections that help to bolster our sense of individuality, future plans, and the new foundations we are laying down for ourselves. It’s very future oriented, which is curious, as Cancer is so often associated with the past, our emotional foundations, histories, habits, comfort zones, and patterns. Something here is being totally revamped. Old, ugly paneling is being gutted out and replaced with fresh and beautiful paint, and the color schemes are wild. Don’t cling to the paneling. It really is ugly, it has to go. There may be some trepidation as we set off on a path that may leave our foundations forever changed, but may open up a whole world of possibilities. This full Moon brings with it a lot of emotional excitement, but also the vulnerability that comes with taking risks. Emotional independence may be desirable for many as they prepare to lay down completely new foundations going forward. Venus squaring Neptune now can see certain dynamics dissolving, mutating, changing form, and there can be a sense of longing or uncertainty in the face of this, as people are left only with their relationships to themselves, the Creator, the divine, -or their visions of what they think love is “supposed” to be. This aspect can facilitate forgiveness, compassion, agape, big heartedness, and release, but can make fulfilling anything in the more physical, tangible sense that Venus longs for a little more out of reach, uncertain, or over a distant horizon. Venus in Sagittarius loves a challenge, shooting arrows at some target in the distance to go and chase after. There can be some revelations or surprises in store at this full Moon. It’s very much a “life begins outside of your comfort zone” type of energy, and it can be emotionally revitalizing. Evening time see’s the Moon form a lovely trine to Neptune, which can see some peaceful lounging, reflecting, and releasing. 


Today see’s the Moon in comfort seeking Cancer in trine to boundary dissolving Neptune, and making oppositions to Mercury and Pluto in Capricorn. The emotions, mind, and imagination are powerfully engaged. There could be something we are fixating on here, or maybe something or someone is driving us to distraction. With the Moon in positive aspect to Neptune this could be a pleasant distraction. Conversely, we could be trying to release distractions in order to more fully immerse ourselves in a process or project. With the Moon linking up to the planet of communication as well as the planet of intensity, power, and compulsive pulls, along with Neptune, there could also be some boundaries or walls coming down in communications somehow as well today. Certainly, there is a lot of compassion available with the Moon in comfy Cancer linking up to unconditionally loving Neptune. For some, this could be a case of compassionately asserted boundaries. If someone crosses a line, sometimes turning the other cheek or simply saying nothing is all that’s required. Later, the Moon squares Mars, which adds a bit more bite to dynamics, and can see more assertiveness and action. This can see plenty of energy to channel into activities, which is probably the best use of this energy, because there’s some pretty intense configurations here, but Neptune keeps a lid on it and works to dissolve and release whatever isn’t working. There may be some sensitivities to watch for in communications. The Moon goes on to oppose Saturn, which can see a seriousness and emotional detachment take hold. People need a lot of room to grow, self actualize, and push a large boulder up a hill under these configurations, so if you’re looking to others to emotionally fulfill or “complete” you, you’re bound to be disappointed.  However, with Juno, the relationship asteroid in freedom loving Sagittarius in sextile to Saturn and Jupiter in unorthodox weirdo Aquarius, there can be interpersonal harmony found with likeminded weirdos who share the same focus, work ethic, values, and vision, without cramping your style, or you theirs. We can be very drawn towards interactions that make us feel free to be who we are, and don’t try to limit us, dampen our enthusiasm, optimism, childlike curiosity and spirit, or put us into a box. Love people simply for who they are and you should have an easier go of things. There can definitely be a push or pressure to communicate or perhaps some stuffed down emotions under these maths, but simultaneously, a lot of inhibitions around doing so, although Neptune might allow for some leakages or gentle hints. There may be a craving for closeness or connection in some way that competes with the need to push a large boulder up a hill and other more independent initiatives. But there is definitely a rich emotional landscape from which to draw energy, motivation and inspiration from. Tomorrow can see yet another “push” of the boulder up the hill. 


This morning begins with the Moon in the final degrees of emo Cancer, squaring up to Mars, opposing Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn, and by 10 AM PST, is at 29 degrees, forming a trine to Chiron in Aries and Juno in Sagittarius. As I type this, the album “Wonderful Rainbow” by Lightning Bolt is playing. It’s yet to be seen what significance this may have, if any, because I’m writing this on Friday Dec 25th of 2020. Math wise, this speaks to interpersonal turning points, and yes, perhaps a rainbow after a storm for some. The Moon heads into playful Leo around 11 AM PST. As it enters Leo, it holds it’s square to Mars, it’s oppositions to Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto, and throws in a square to Uranus in Taurus. So this looks exciting and things are set to get pretty interesting this weekend for sure. I mean, it’s New Year, so people are bound to get pretty wild. Some people can feel a pronounced “aloneness” with the lunar/Saturn opposition, an “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” type of vibe, and they can seek to shake things up somehow and do something about it, maybe doing something unusual, random, getting a wild hair up their ass at the New year. Others can be happy about their independence and seek to enjoy it even more, perhaps making a break for freedom to find something interesting to get into. In either case, with the lunar trines to both Chiron and Juno, the relationship asteroid, it’s possible others play a role in bolstering our feelings of fun, courage, faith, adventurousness, self belief, and there can be some healing interpersonal meetings that positively shake things up in a refreshing way. A lunar square to Uranus means expect the unexpected. There can definitely be some shocks or some “outside of the box” happenings. Venus square to Neptune now can mean relationships have a certain longing, uncertainty or confusion to them, but positively, this can assist people into a more spiritual type of love, where forgiveness and acceptance of the way things and people are can come into focus. I don’t know about anybody else, but the type of love that Osho ( a Sun sign Sagittarius) always spoke about is the only kind I know or practice. Reading some of his many words on the matter might be helpful to people who might be struggling with the Venus/Neptune square. Positively, where some people might be experiencing a sort of dissolution, impossibility, or letting go in certain dynamics, equally, there are other dynamics that can be sprouting up and keeping our eyes on the horizon and looking forward. Have faith that anything and anyone meant for you will come to you, and have the self love to seek and enjoy the happiness of what is possible in the here and now. 


FRI JAN 1 -JAN 3 2021.

Happy New Year! It certainly begins on a note of celebration with the Moon in gregarious Leo, although there may be some constraints (Moon/Saturn opposition), there is still much to be enjoyed. The lunar trines to Chiron and Juno stand out to me and could see some highly unusual connections forming that can be healing as well as consciousness or horizon expanding. The Sun in Capricorn trine to Uranus now can see a broad focus on our goals and ambitions, across the board, and revitalizing them, as well as connecting with likeminded others who share them or can assist in achieving them. The Moon in showy Leo squaring Uranus now can make going after our goals into a party. We might be single minded and determined about what we want to actualize and whatever our personal “boulder up the hill” is, but it doesn’t have to be boring. In fact, we can feel really passionate, enthusiastic and excited about whatever our goals are right now. Noon PST see’s the Moon trine nicely with Venus in Sagittarius, and this can see some really pleasing interactions or exchanges. People can be a joy to be around, warm and generous. There can be some unexpected but happy moments this Friday. Enjoy them, because Saturday looks even better. Saturday Jan 2 see’s the Moon in Leo trine Venus and Mars. Hell yes. I don’t what this is going to be but it looks sweeeeeet! With Venus also trine to Mars in Aries, (who has been pushing a boulder up a hill forever now), it looks like this Saturday, Mars gets a little (unexpected) reward. Mars also conjoins Uranus in Taurus today, getting ready to move in to this Venus ruled sign next week. This has been the planet of passion’s final full week in the sign of Aries, so perhaps it’s due time for a cookie. The boulder is heavy, and pushing is hard, and for Mars in Aries, so is patience. Something pretty significant can shift today that gives us an intimation of the radical (and delicious) Mars in Taurus cycle. Mars is breaking free from something today, once and for all, and taking something for himself, some long desired cookie or something, to mark this passage. This can see some really unexpected but awesome interpersonal exchanges that can be really uplifting, pleasant, passionate, motivating, and positive. The Moon, overseeing Venus and Mars in a warm embrace, and blessing their union. Beautiful. This is love, my dudes. There’s nothing not to love about these aspects. Early evening see’s the Moon head into detail and improvement oriented Virgo and throws in a trine to Uranus, to add even more surprises. It looks like something (or someone) has given us fuel. Fuel to not only finish pushing the boulder up the hill, -but to chisel a statue out of it when we finally get it there. There can be a lot of nervous excitement here, as the Moon in the Mercury ruled Virgo trines Uranus, the nervous system is very impacted. With so many surprising changes unfolding, staying grounded will be important. Sunday Jan 3 see’s the Moon trine the Sun and Mercury in Capricorn, while opposing Neptune. It’s clear that we’ve broken some sort of new ground here, and the lunar opposition to hazy Neptune could have us a bit anxious about it even if we feel over the moon about it. Nonetheless, the mind, will and feelings-and later, when Pluto joins in, the instincts- are all aligned. Mercury also makes a square to Mars in 28 degrees Aries, marking major turning points in communications from now and in the days ahead. Huge shifts. Positive ones, possibly worth calling your mom about. The boulder is almost to the top of that MF hill.

Friday, December 18, 2020



The Sun enters Capricorn today, to join Mercury, which entered the realm of the stoic and determined Goat on Sunday. This sets the stage for a more goal and achievement oriented cycle where it's all about the hustle and the drive to succeed and reach new peaks. We welcome the Winter Solstice with the perfection of the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Aquarius, where we are presented with both (perhaps unprecedented) opportunities, and the challenge of rising to meet them. The morning begins with the moon in the late degrees of Pisces, heading towards Aries.  This morning see’s the Moon form sextile to Saturn and Jupiter, now freshly in Aquarius. These configurations symbolize a release of old chapters and a commitment to forward momentum. After a dreamy, reflective, restful and imaginative weekend with the Moon in Pisces, and mutable signs emphasized, the first portion of the day can find us getting our footing and preparing for new initiatives. So this can see the morning half of today still in “visualizing” mode before a hike up a mountain. The Moon enters assertive Aries at 2:32 PM PST, which can see a more decisive, action oriented energy take hold. Here, the Moon forms a square to the Sun and Mercury in grounded, earthy Capricorn, a trine to Venus in Sagittarius, sextile to Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius, and a conjunction to Chiron. There is a definite determination and enthusiasm here, and the emphasis is on the future. New initiatives, new connections, and things that broaden our scope. It’s an adventurous and pioneering energy, and the lunar squares to the Sun and Mercury can see an energy that is ready to hunker down and get down to business. We can be preparing to open new doors here, and enter uncharted territory on several levels. It’s interesting to note that Juno, the relationship asteroid is also now in Sagittarius, and the Moon forms a trine to Juno as well. All of these configurations highlight significant turning points with others, and it’s an expansive, adventurous, and optimistic energy. With the Sun and Mercury now in trine to Uranus in Taurus, changes that may have been planned for and thought about during Saturn and Jupiters treck through Capricorn can begin to be a focal point, and certain restrictive energies are no longer preventing or inhibiting their application. There’s a sort of liberation process underway here. Interpersonally this can feel very exciting, though with the Moon in Aries squaring the Sun and Mercury in Capricorn, we may be keeping our enthusiasm about certain things or people somewhat stuffed down or could feel a bit inhibited or indecisive about expressing it in full force. But it’s definitely there. There could be a lot to communicate. There’s a boundless curiosity, motivation and enthusiasm to these configurations, but the planets in Capricorn know that anything worthwhile requires work, patience, effort, consistency, realism, and discipline. But it’s very easy to see and feel all the potential available, and things look very promising, even under the realistic scrutiny of Mercury in Capricorn. 


This morning see’s the Moon in motivated Aries conjunct Chiron, square Mercury, and trine Venus in Sagittarius. There could be communication thresholds to cross interpersonally, and this could take some courage. Something about these configurations suggest dipping our toes in new terrain communication wise and interpersonally and it can feel exciting and intimidating at the same time. It looks positive, and things can really open up. Horizons can be expanded through interactions with others. The dominating configurations for the majority of the day is the lunar trine to Venus, which is joined early evening by a lunar conjunction to Mars. This is a passionate, exciting and rather playful energy that can definitely see people motivated to enjoy themselves through their connections with others and in general. Much of what is happening now is very new and expansive, and outside what has been normal for us. There can be an impulsiveness to this energy, but also more bravery and courage than normal. Definitely a lot of fun and passionate vibes. The Sun and Mercury in Capricorn trine Uranus are shaking things up, and there is a lot about whatever is transpiring now that has been a long time coming, due to intentions set back when Saturn entered Capricorn, followed by Jupiter. Saturn and Jupiter leave gifts by the door when they leave, so we can begin to experience a sort of “harvest period” for the inner and outer work we have done on ourselves and our lives. Venus in trine to Chiron now can bring in some very healing and mutually beneficial interactions that can uplift and motivate us, however the Sun and Mercury in square to Chiron suggests that there are a lot of communication inhibitions to work through, and it could be important not to make assumptions based on previous wounds or insecurities (Chiron.) All in all, a very pleasing and exciting energy today.


This morning begins with the Moon in Aries conjunct Mars and square Pluto, which can see a lot of energy and intensity build over the day. As the day progresses, a lunar sesquisquare to Venus in Sagittarius forms, along with lunar squares to Saturn and Jupiter, and a trine to the Sun in Capricorn in late afternoon. Over the course of the day this can see certain submerged energies come to light, perhaps interpersonally, as well as the potential for certain milestones being reached in general. There is a definite *intensity* to these configurations, and a lot can be going on in general and under the surface. Major changes and transformations, and new thresholds are being penetrated. Communications can play a role, or are about to- and it’s possible new alliances are in the process of unfolding and being cemented via being taken into certain confidences, or simply more involved and revealing conversations. These configurations show a lot of submerged, buried, or suppressed energy wanting to come to light, and can speak of a process of bringing certain people “into the fold” or of deepening certain talks or alliances. This can be a high energy, action packed day, that can see the mind, passions, and emotions somewhat heavily fixated or compulsively pulled in towards something or someone. As the Moon heads into the later degrees of Aries it trines Mercury in Capricorn and conjoins Uranus, intimating at a sort or liberating energy that cements situations and dynamics in a new direction that’s perhaps been thought about a long time. This can open up the channels of communications and get conversations and collaborations going that can be surprising, exciting, revealing, and motivating. Tomorrow will really see this emphasized when the Moon heads into slow, sensual, earthy “show me the money” Taurus. Huge changes and personal/interpersonal revolutions are happening.


Today see’s the Moon in tactile Taurus, conjunct Uranus, trine the Sun and Mercury in Capricorn, and square Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius. There is nothing “normal” about this day, but it gives us some impressions of the changes coming down the pike. There can be some very revealing communications highlighted today, and there’s something new and exciting about whatever is going on and being thought about or shared. Whatever it is, it’s cementing things in a new direction, and with the Sun and Mercury in Capricorn there’s something serious or long term about it all. Again, much of this has been a long time coming. There’s definitely something liberating about these configurations, and there’s a lot of innovative and surprising energy in the atmosphere. There can even be some shocks, but it looks to be of a largely positive or benign variety. In either case, it looks like certain communication channels are opening up, and whatever felt repressed, constrained or inhibited while Saturn was in Capricorn, can now begin to shake itself loose and unleash itself. This can also see a lot of surprising insights, emotionally and otherwise, and there can be some strokes of creative genius as well. With the Sun in Mercury in Capricorn squaring Chiron, there can be some insecurity, vulnerability, self doubt, or inhibitions to work through, but we learn by doing. Life is about taking calculated risks, and also being willing to fall down on your face sometimes, get back up, and try again.  Today can see a wild hair in our butt twitch around communications, or even money or commerce, and other Venus ruled things (Moon in Taurus). It’s a fun, liberating and experimental energy we’ve perhaps been sitting on for a long time, that say’s “Fuck it.” There's a lot of variety, and a certain erratic, shock rock nature to the day. Certain cats are let out of certain bags, or certain experimental initiatives are taken, and this get’s the weekend off to a very interesting start.


FRI DEC 25-SUN DEC 27 2020

Friday see’s the Moon in Taurus sextile Neptune and trine Pluto in Capricorn. This can be a pleasantly reflective energy, perhaps reflecting on all the positive transformations underway after yesterday’s surprising exchanges, thoughts, or communications. It’s possible also that some people can feel a certain relief after having got something off their chest or opening up a channel of communication in which to do so. In either case, things are transforming very nicely, and the lunar sextile to Neptune can provide an idyllic and restful period to dream. There can be some intense but pleasant feelings available under these configurations, as if a new portal has been opened in which we have full permission to dive into and enjoy. Some quietly powerful but highly potent energies that can see the imagination and the senses highly stimulated. Saturday the 26 begins with the Moon in late Taurus, forming trines to Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto, and it’s clear we’ve reached some new threshold or breakthrough. Something or someone has definitely made an impact, and this can see some major positive shifts occurring. There’s a lot of generosity in today’s mathscape, and things going on now can make a lasting impression on us or have a significant impact in some way. New foundations are being laid down, emotionally, socially, interpersonally, commercially, literally, or all of the above. The Moon enters multitasking and communicative Gemini at 3:33 PM PST, and this can see even more communications, and perhaps some pleasant things going on in the local environment, neighborhood, or with short distance excursions. The Moon in Gemini sextile’s Chiron in Aries, and this helps take the edge off of any communication inhibitions generated by the Sun’s square to the wounded healer, which Mercury has now relented on. We can feel pleasantly encouraged to just be our weird selves and challenge any inhibitions we’ve felt around communications. It’s possible we’ve realized certain fears, insecurities, inhibitions, or walls we’ve had up, were unfounded,- and we might wonder why we didn’t reach this conclusion sooner. Sunday the 27 can see a slight hangover commence, with the Moon in Gemini opposite Venus in Sagittarius and square Neptune. There can be some minor conflict between our own needs and those of others at the moment, and there’s a slight social awkwardness. We could be highly sensitive to the environment and perhaps overthinking things a bit too much. The Moon/Neptune square can see some nervousness, confusion, or vague fears. It’s also possible there’s certain others who may be less than happy, or perhaps moody. The energy in general can be a bit nervous, moody, sensitive, with the potential for some heightened feelings. Anytime we do or try anything new, enter new territory or challenge our inhibitions in any way, this often results in a period of second guessing ourselves or overthinking things. Don’t dwell in any momentary lapses of confidence, or “shoulda, coulda, woulda’s”. Conversely, it could be certain others who are less than happy with whatever you’re doing. Offer compassion, but don’t let other people’s hangups hold you back or take you off of the new path you’re forging for yourself. 

Saturday, December 12, 2020



Today begins with a potent New Moon Solar eclipse at 8:17 AM PST, in 23 degrees of Sagittarius. While the second decan of Sagittarius speaks of courage, resilience, determination, and tenacity in the face of contrary forces, and obstacles against the will, the 3rd decan, where this eclipse will take place, represents a completion, as well as a necessary sacrifice or separation that needs to be made in order to achieve the will. This decan of Sagittarius is ruled by the 10 of wands in the Rider Waite tarot, a card that illustrates the difficulties one must endure to complete an act of will. This card merges the sweet tastes of triumph, satisfaction, and victory over obstacles, adversaries, and contrary forces, with the more rooty, salty and bitter tastes of sweat, exhaustion, and sacrifice. The will is very strong here, and with the Moon conjunct the Sun and Mercury, and trine Mars, the mind, feelings, passions, and the will are aligned with intention, and have confronted all obstacles of resistance or impediments to the execution of the will, and now comes the last round of the marathon, where the necessary sacrifices are made to reach the summit. This “sacrifice” is embodied by the solar and lunar squares to Neptune. This, combined with the eclipse in the final decan of Sagittarius can see a secretly somber tone, even in the face of imminent victory. Something is being released here but what is being gained in exchange for this sacrifice is an authentic alignment of the spiritual will, far greater freedom, joy, expansion, and an upgrade in consciousness, feeling, vibration, passion, and motivation for growth and achievement. But first, something or someone must be let go of, and a lunar sesquisquare to Uranus suggests that although challenging to a certain degree, a release of control ultimately liberates the will to come more into alignment with it’s destiny. For some, this can be a release of outworn emotional patterns, for others, outworn attachments or patterns of relating to self and others that are limiting growth and deeper levels of fulfillment, achievement, joy, optimism, and abundance on a soul level. With Venus in Scorpio having put us in touch with the underbellies of our instinctual natures and authentic passions and desires via a highly experimental and exploratory process that was facilitated by her opposition to unorthodox Uranus, she moves into adventurous Sagittarius tomorrow to more fully embark upon this new terrain. This being said, this eclipse could most certainly have an interpersonal element, and the transformations taking place in this realm can have a huge impact on our consciousness, development, and vibrational alignment. The Moon enters stoic and sober Capricorn at 7:35 PM PST, squaring Chiron in Aries, and forming a trine to Uranus in Taurus. Structural changes going on interpersonally and emotionally can be very exciting on the one hand, but can also have some people feeling vulnerable, exposed, or a bit raw. The Moon in Capricorn trine to Uranus speaks of the need to lay down some emotional boundaries in order to break with a status quo pattern and pursue fresh and enlivening directions that will represent the building blocks of new emotional foundations. This is going to be quite a download and psychic/emotional growth spurt.


This morning see’s the Moon in serious Capricorn trine Uranus and square Chiron, while Venus enters adventurous, gregarious, growth and learning oriented Sagittarius at 8:21 AM PST, in trine to Chiron in Aries, (which stations direct today), while still sextile to Saturn and Jupiter. This energy can best be described as an energetic disentanglement process on the one hand, and a sort of break for freedom to choose an interpersonal and/or financial path that takes us in a direction that is more in alignment with our authentic desires, growth, healing, development, -and our souls desire to more fully self actualize. It's a very "visceral" download and "upgrades" to assimilate, with some very "physical" components. Powerful manifestation energy for sure. It's as if the universe is making sure everyone is in vibrational alignment with the gifts that Jupiter and Saturn in Capricorn are leaving at the door for them before they change signs. Chiron stationing direct opens a more clear channel for healing, and can assist with bringing us back into the present, making it easier to see defense mechanisms, insecurities, unhealed wounds, and emotional coping strategies that have outworn their usefulness, and have become forms of self sabotage that interfere with our healing, growth, and capacity for courage and self belief. The Sun, Mercury, and Mars have been aligning the will in this healing direction for a while now, and now Venus, the planet of love, relationships, money, values, beauty, creativity and pleasure joins the bogus journey. The afternoon see’s the lunar/Chiron tensions relent, which can take the edge off of the more vulnerable feelings that can tend to accompany an increased requirement for courage and faith in ourselves and in life. Early evening see’s the Moon in Capricorn make a semi square to Venus freshly in Sagittarius, a square to Mars in Aries, a sextile to Neptune in Pisces, and a conjunction to Pluto. This can see an increased resolve and push in a new direction, a compassionate or cathartic release, implicit understanding, or a softening of boundaries, with a compassionate affirmation of them elsewhere. The nitty gritty of yet another phase of an ongoing transformation process is underway, and each Capricorn lunation marks another “push” up the mountain. Tomorrow looks set to be an intense, driven and focused day, so the evening hours of tonight are ideal for planning, reflection, envisioning and imagining. This is also good energy for constructive forms of creativity, manifestation, and aligning with our intentions and visions. There can also be some intense discussions or spiritual breakthroughs. 


Today can begin on a focused and determined note, with the Moon squaring Mars, and conjunct Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in disciplined Capricorn. There can be a lot of energy to get things done, and the physical/somatic drives can be strong, although take care to avoid being impatient, crotchety or intolerant. With self control, this energy is a steamroller and can accomplish a lot. With the Sun and Mercury both trine to Mars on top of the lunar/Mars square, there can be a lot of communications, and people trying to talk other people around to their point of view. It’s rather futile however, because under these alignments, people want what they want, have already decided on a course of action, and they’re implementing it. The end. If you find yourself caught up in longwinded discussions where you’re feeling a need to convince others into being ok with you doing whatever it is you have to do, or defend your position or feelings, and it gets you irritated, let your actions do the talking for you and just quietly be about your plan, whatever it is. Conversely, these configurations may just see a whole lot of enthusiasm around putting new ideas or endeavors into motion, but intense discussions are a definite possibility, and people might be navigating subtle or not so subtle conflicts of interests or pressure from multiple angles. This energy doesn’t have to be a bad thing, it's quite a catalyst, -but the Moon in Capricorn is more of a doer than a talker. With the G.O.A.T stellium in full swing, it's out to get RESULTS, (in ALL CAPS) -especially so as Saturn and Jupiter are conjunct at the most urgent, final degree of the stoic sea goat. Around 8:43 PM PST, the Moon, Saturn and Jupiter perfect a very intense conjunction all in 29 degrees Capricorn. Pluto is involved in this conjunction too, but not by degree. Perhaps the universe decided that would be a little *too* much power. This occurs while the Moon also makes sextiles to Venus in Sagittarius, and Juno, the relationship asteroid, in 29 degrees Scorpio. Needless to say, it’ll be interesting to note WTF is going on around 8:45 PM PST tonight, because this looks pretty significant, particularly so for relationships with others. The most significant thing this evening however, comes at 9:04 PM PST, when Saturn, planet of mastery, discipline, wisdom and hard knocks, enters humanitarian, free thinking, future oriented, and unorthodox Aquarius. Jupiter will follow suit on Saturday Dec 19. This Grand Conjunction gives us a leg up, kicking off Saturns 2 and a half year journey through Aquarius by handing us an opportunity, -along with the responsibility to truly value and appreciate it for everything that it’s worth.  In the simplest of terms, Saturns sojourn through Aquarius asks that we rise to the challenge of mastering our future. Our individual futures, and our collective future. Some of you are officially kicking off your Saturn return at this time. Congratulations on this right of passage. Saturn in Capricorn has helped us learn more about our relationship to, and definitions of authority, power, time and it’s tested wisdoms. Saturn in Aquarius will help us learn more about our relationship to and definitions of experimentation, justice, freedom, humanitarianism, and rebellion. What IS “normal” anyway? The house in your whole house natal chart that is ruled by Aquarius will be an area that will host a controlled expansion and an experimental process that will have long term implications into the future. As with any planetary shift, Saturn’s will certainly be felt today. At first, because Saturn sticks it’s toes into Aquarius ahead of generous and benevolent Jupiter, it may feel intimidating. But by this weekend, Jupiter will arrive to hold our hand and walk us through the first year of this transit. Tonight, at 10:27 PM PST, the Moon enters Aquarius as well, and these alignments actually signify some profound shifts, individually, collectively, socially, and interpersonally. It’s almost as if a doll house is being shook out and rearranged, as the Moon in Aquarius squares Uranus in Taurus, sextile Venus in Sagittarius, and Juno in 29 degrees of Scorpio. This can see some pretty radical or experimental shifts or approaches happening socially, interpersonally, and/or financially, at the behest of us following our deepest instincts. Because Juno, the relationship asteroid is in 29 degrees of Scorpio, whatever shifts in alliances are happening now, it was inevitable. There is a fated quality to these configurations that remind me of the words of Marcus Aurelius: “Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart.” In other words, by simply accepting them and allowing them the freedom to be who they are. 


Today is highlighted by the Moon in unorthodox Aquarius squaring up to Uranus in tactile, money bags Taurus, and this can see people requiring room to maneuver as they adjust to huge changes in their practical realities, values, assets, self worth, their relationship to money, earned income, possessions, and even to their body and physicality. Minor tense aspects from the Moon to the Sun and Mercury in Sagittarius suggests an attempt to gain some perspective on the feelings. The Moon in Aquarius has a difficult time trusting the feelings or completely surrendering to them. There may be some outmoded beliefs or judgements that are holding us back or preventing us from fully embracing or surrendering to our own authentic experiences or feelings non judgmentally. Conversely, this can also see us breaking free of limiting circumstances, asserting our freedom, or standing our ground in circumstances or dynamics that are contrary to our true will. This influence doesn’t last, but can see the first portion of the day feel a bit harder to express ourselves, or could see a challenge to find a balance between head and heart, or our true will and that of certain others . Really, there’s just been a lot of change to adapt to all at once, so a chance to gain a higher perspective on “how to drive this thing” could be precisely what’s needed. With some perspective and arm chair philosophizing, and in some cases, declarations of independence from certain constraints, it should be easier to feel at home with the changes that honoring and befriending our deeper instincts has required of us. The lunar square to Uranus can see the emotions a bit up and down, easily excitable, or simply very surprising, new, or unlike anything previously experienced before. Perhaps there’s some highly unusual or unprecedented circumstances, situations, or dynamics going on. This aspect can see a lot of nervous energy, or energy could come in fits and starts, in unstable intervals, or at weirds times. There can be unexpected happenings, even some strokes of unusual genius or insight. It’s possible we could do or try something out of the ordinary for us, or something we aren’t accustomed to, or learning something completely new or foreign to us, in preparation for heading into alien terrain, or terrain that we haven’t visited in a while. This could be literal or figurative. Either way, ch ch ch changes…



Friday morning see’s the Moon in experimental Aquarius sextile Mars in Aries which the Sun and Mercury in mind expanding Sagittarius both hold a trine to. The relationship asteroid Juno also enters into adventure seeking Sagittarius this morning at 9:25 AM PST to conjoin Venus, and this can encourage us to follow our curiosity and feel more courage to explore new, uncharted terrain. The Moon goes on to sextile the Sun and Mercury which can put a spotlight on communications, learning, study, broadcasting, and overall exploration. This looks like an active, talkative, and even amusing day that seems to indicate new initiatives, dynamics, projects, situations or environments that could be unlike anything we’ve ever done or experienced before. It’s like we’re entering alien territory, and with Juno and Venus meeting up, this could have an interpersonal/relational or collaborative element. Either way, we could feel supported in whatever we’re embarking on now, no matter how weird or unusual it is. Saturday Dec 19 see’s the Moon in psychically sensitive Pisces conjoining compassionate Neptune can have us feeling things more vividly. Perhaps the rapid fire pace of certain interpersonal, emotional and/or economic/financial changes one after another sees us craving some time out or reflection to explore certain emotions and process certain endings and new beginnings. Eclipse season be like that sometimes. It might not be easy to express or articulate our feelings out loud, but the Moon in Pisces makes us feel less inhibited about exploring new or unusual feelings or experiences privately, in order to embrace a transformation and emotional renewal. Sunday Dec 20th carries on this dreamy, restful, artsy, downtempo vibe, and in the evening, see’s a lunar sextile to Pluto, which can see the emotional states carry a powerful momentum or increase the intensity to which things are felt or perceived, but can also bring us in touch with our own power over circumstances that might feel out of our control, or simply produce highly unusual but impactful experiences, aesthetics, and feelings. Mercury also enters grounded and serious Capricorn today, which precedes the Winter Solstice and the Sun's entrance here tomorrow. Bringing certain dreams down to reality can be a focus through this transition, and this weekend can represent a sort of visualization, preparation and release process. We can be very impressionable to our environment but can also make a very strong impression upon it as well. Very creative, dreamy, and imaginative energy.

Sunday, December 6, 2020



The time between eclipses is usually a bit strange, and this eclipse season has been no exception. Today begins with the Moon in Virgo making a square to the Sun and Mercury in Sagittarius, a trine to Uranus in Taurus and an opposition to Neptune in Pisces. This can see an organization process happening for some major changes occurring. There’s a sort of “uplevelling” to this. It can also see people in a rather experimental frame, on the one hand wanting to lunge forward and expand into adventurous new territory, and on the other, wanting things to be perfect and just right. These aspects sort of capture the “feel the fear and do it anyway” mentality, but perhaps there’s something happening that’s got to be cleared up first. We could be sort of indecisive this morning, perhaps around how or whether to approach certain communications, or perhaps this is in regards to travel or some other “adventure into the great unknown.” What’s clear is that there are a lot of unknowns, and the Virgo lunation in square to the Sun and Mercury can be prone to overthinking or worry, there’s minor things to resolve or adjustments to make to get things just right. It also highlights that much of what we are doing is a learn as we go sort of deal. Although Virgo can tend towards perfectionism, it can be worth it to go over details, but not to a point of analysis paralysis. There can be something exciting about whatever we’re embarking on now. The Sagittarius placements can provide an adventurous spirit, humor, optimism, and levity. In the afternoon the Moon in Virgo trines Pluto. With Neptune involved, we can be drawn to what and who is unusual, spiritual, artistic, or elusive, and the lunar trine to Pluto can intensify this and take us into a rabbit hole. Something can have our intense focus. Later, the Moon makes a sextile to Venus in Scorpio and a quincunx to Mars in Aries. This can see some passionate, perhaps nervous tensions and the instinctual energies and drive towards pleasure can be strong, and we might have to slow ourselves down just a little bit, -but it’s a motivating mojo. There is a penetrating curiosity and freak weirdness to these aspects, and a minor lunar aspect to Uranus can see some unexpected feelings, happenings, or experiences.  We can be taking a lot of pleasure in adding new things into our routines and preparing to do something new to us. A lunar trine to Jupiter in the evening as well adds even more adventurousness into the mix and this can see some overall good vibes, good will, emotional generosity and expansiveness closing out the evening. 


This morning begins with the Moon in Virgo sextile Juno in Scorpio, trine Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto, and opposite Neptune. Some huge transformations, upgrades and changes can be happening in our daily life and routines, and we can be quietly supported and encouraged in these transitions and improvements we’re making, even if it might feel like something or someone is missing or there is a vague sense of longing present, or some highly unusual circumstances, there can still be optimism and idealism. The first half of the day can be be focused on handling some final details, planning, and organizing. Around 4 PM PST, the Moon heads into Libra and shifts the focus on to partnerships, collaborations, and cooperations with others,. This see’s the Moon oppose Chiron in Aries, there could be a need to cultivate courage around new initiatives, and there can also be some sensitivities in relation to others. Maintaining a balance between our own goals and initiatives and our need to maintain connections to others can be challenging, because Mars really has everyone doing their own thing.  With the Sun trine Mars in Sagittarius, and a New Moon eclipse happening next Monday in freedom loving Sagittarius, there is definitely a keen enthusiasm to embark on our own personal adventure and expansive initiatives. With lunar trines to Chiron and Pallas standing out this evening, this can put a spotlight on partnerships or the need to make emotional decisions, and this may highlight a need for reflection, strategy, and retreat in order to formulate a plan before taking any leaps of faith. A sort of emotional integration process before the Moon in Libra sextiles Mercury and opposes Mars tomorrow.


Today begins with the Moon in Libra sextile Mercury in Sagittarius and this can see some pleasant or morale boosting communications. We can be seeking out inspiration, creatively, interpersonally and otherwise. With Mercury now squaring Neptune it’s important to make sure we’re seeing things and people clearly as this can be a rather easily deluded aspect where people hear what they want to hear, deny what they don’t want to hear, or things are simply slippery, unclear, and difficult to pin down. Avoid shady deals and read the fine print. There can be the potential for misunderstandings under these Neptune squares, so slowing down and making the extra effort to remain realistic and grounded is key. Using our powers of discrimination through this Mercury/Solar cycle will be important, but it can be great for the imagination, gathering inspiration, and bolstering optimism, idealism and faith levels. Just remember that we need more than just wishful thinking to make things happen and get results in practical reality. Midmorning see’s the Moon oppose Mars in Aries which can see the potential for slight difficulties in communications as the aspect builds over the day. There can be some clashes evident between our own goals and those of others, or just clashes between what we know needs to get done and our own desires interpersonally. It’s a good aspect to use to let off steam via doing something that requires high concentration or even physical effort. With Mars squaring Pluto and the Moon aspecting Mercury and Mars, we can be simultaneously inspired and/or irritated/catalyzed by others. The Moon goes on to sextile the Sun in Sagittarius as well, bringing more focus to people and matters at a distance, other cultures, or who we could learn from in some way. This highlights a “learning as we go” process, and we can be keen to expand our consciousness, world view, skills, and territory. This process can require a fierce independence, and to some extent we may have to cast aside concern with what others will think of that. With Venus in contact with both Neptune and Pluto, deep dreams, aspirations and longings can be awakened (or reawakened), and the Sun trine Mars urges us to go for it. Just make sure you’re seeing things clearly, and don't be in so much of a hurry that you skip over important steps. The Moon in Libra squares Pluto in the evening hours, suggesting a potential for interpersonal intensity. For some there can be connections, interactions, or attractions that you just can’t shake. Venus/Pluto can see some deep or compelling pulls, and with Neptune there, there can be an otherworldly, or spiritual quality that transcends space, time, circumstances, denial, and normal day to day interactions. The lunar/Mars opposition suggests there might even be something slightly frustrating about this. Perhaps in spite of great differences in outlook or even outright disagreement, or simply great distances, cultural or lifestyle disparities, certain bonds, pulls, or attractions remain strong and unwavering. If you’re experiencing something akin to this, usually there’s some kind of spiritual significance to this, some kind of medicine, teaching, or message certain interactions have to impart that can align you more fully with the next phase of your development, or help you to more fully self actualize. Regardless, the Libra lunation highlights connections to others for better or worse, so it’s kind of a “what are you gonna do about it?” sort of vibe. Mars is in independent Aries for the rest of the year, which can see us all very focused on our own goals, which for some can see our own agendas or ambitions kind of competing with or at odds with the interpersonal/relationship realm. The Libra moon also highlights beauty, harmony, creativity, and aesthetics as well, so there can be emphasis on beautification of surroundings or appearances and other Venus ruled endeavors (art, music, etc) under this lunation. Moon opposite Mars can see some tensions or even veiled hostilities, so take care in your delivery if you have to have words with someone or have been stuffing a lot down.


Today begins with the Moon in Libra opposite Mars, and square Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. This can feel like an intense build up to something, and the energy between others can be thick and barely veiled under the Libra Moon’s diplomatic front. Some people can be preparing to throw a curve ball or a spanner into the works, shaking things up. Afternoon see’s the Moon/Mars opposition relent, leaving the main players Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto running the show. There can be an indulgent atmosphere that’s also curiously focused, controlled, and determined, and we can be driven and intense now. Moon/Pluto suggests there’s a certain fixated quality to the emotions, but the Moon/Saturn contact wants to funnel that into something constructive, and therein lies the challenge. There can also be a “stuck” energy that’s trying to become “unstuck.” In the afternoon, as the the Moon enters the final degrees of Libra, it opposes Uranus, and this can see a growing restlessness, or a desire for change or more freedom, particularly interpersonally, and it can be that people wrestle with various conflicting feelings. Conflicts between heart and mind and the like can see a tipping point. This doesn't need to only play out on the romantic front but can be any relationship, friendship, collaboration, -business or personal. Dealings with others in general. The Moon enters intuitive and instinctual Scorpio around 6 PM PST, and this can see an interesting dive into the emotions, compulsions, and passions, and moods and feelings can be highly changeable and erratic, and we might even have difficulty fully giving into them completely, or conversely there can be some impulsiveness or a compulsivity that drives us to behave out of character. In either case, what we resist persists, and this weekend can demonstrate that resistance is futile, but surrendering to our own authentic needs, feelings and desires that can turn out to be an unexpectedly pleasant experience. With the Sun trine Mars there’s definitely a lot of courage, adventurousness, and energy, and this weekend can get off to a bit of a stir crazy start. 


DEC 11-13 2020.

Friday see’s the Moon in intense and emo Scorpio opposing Uranus which can see some emotional restlessness that can put people into a highly experimental frame. The Moon goes on to trine Neptune and this can see some boundaries dissolving or certain walls coming down, even just privately as regards to certain needs/desires or feelings we've shelved or kept at bay. Equally, there can also be some interesting mystical experiences or synchronicities. With Venus now also sextile to Jupiter as well as Pluto, it’s possible that certain feelings have only grown in proportion over the week, and the Moon/Neptune connection can create a highly attuned, sensitive, receptive, and non judgmental atmosphere. Friday evening see’s the Moon conjoin Venus, and this can see some really pleasurable and beautiful vibes. This is lovely math, and carries over and expands into Saturday. Saturday see’s the Moon in Scorpio conjunct Venus and Juno, and sextile Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn. This can see some really pleasant and beneficial connections, or even just private experiences, and we can feel spiritually, emotionally and materially supported or nourished, even if we keep much to ourselves under the secretive Scorpio Moon. With Mercury and the Sun trine Mars, there can be an emphasis on opening up communications. In the afternoon, the Moon heads into Sagittarius to trine Chiron and there can be more courage to take initiatives in communications and other expansive endeavors that require an adventurous attitude. Saturday looks over all really pleasing. Sunday Dec 13 see’s the Moon in freedom loving Sagittarius trine Chiron, conjoin Mercury, trine Mars, and square Neptune. There can be an emphasis on travel, study, learning, or people at a distance or from different backgrounds for some. Idealism can be high, and we can overlook obstacles and feel the sky is the limit. There can be more courage available to communicate, and we can feel more driven to do so. However, it’s important to use discernment and make sure you’re not misunderstanding something, or overlooking real problems that require a practical and realistic, solution oriented attitude, as opposed to just "ignoring things away," or being stunned like a deer in headlights, as the Neptune squares are particularly active. There can be a lot to take in, and it can be dizzying, serendipitous, and surreal, but with the combination of drive, enthusiasm, courage, optimism, determination, and faith, a lot of really beautiful things can be accomplished when we're able to release and dissolve certain fears and doubts. 

Friday, November 27, 2020




This week begins on a poignant note with a Full Moon eclipse in Gemini. The lunar square to imaginative Neptune suggests that certain things are still in an ideas phase, and there can be a lot of speculation, fantasy, and creativity around whatever is unfolding. Minor lunar aspects to Saturn and Jupiter suggest a desire to make dreams a reality in some regard and to actualize something that we perhaps thought about before but had shelved for one reason or another. Mid morning see’s the Moon sextile Mars in Aries which can see the pace of things pick up significantly and there can be motivation to get things moving in a progressive direction. This can see a busy atmosphere with more than one pot on the boil, and more than one thing to pay attention to. With the solar trine to Mars, there is a definite emphasis on expanding our terrain, horizons, learning new skills and graduating to new levels of activity. The lunar eclipse occurs within the wee hours of the AM, 1:30 AM PST. A decided shift and new activity/new cycles will be unfolding in the house Gemini rules in your personal natal chart. The results of this won’t be seen immediately of course, but each one of us is preparing to embark upon a learning journey and make some significant changes within the area that Gemini rules in our chart. This depends upon what your rising sign is in your *whole house natal chart.* Full Moon eclipses usher in an evolution and offer us an opportunity to release emotional patterns, experiences or attachments that have run their course and are no longer serving us. Consider it an opportunity to sort of press the “reset” or “refresh” button. In Gemini, much of this can revolve around communications, as well as how we mentally process our emotions. This can be a time of becoming conscious of our own personal blockages, hang ups, or patterns, and taking decisive initiatives to grow beyond them, release them, learn from them, and evolve. Mercury, the planet that rules Gemini, will change signs tomorrow, moving into expansive Sagittarius, Gemini’s opposite sign. This can see communications become much more forthright and people can be more inclined to say what they’re really thinking. Full Moons typically involve the ending of a cycle, a closing of a chapter or door, and the opening of a new one. With the North/South node activated, this can involve the shedding of old beliefs, specifically anything that has prevented us from seeing a different perspective. The Sun in Sagittarius beckons us towards expansion, encourages us to remain open minded, and to view everything and everyone as our teacher. We can be embarking on a major learning curve. The lunar square to Neptune doesn’t have to be sad, debilitating or confusing. This can be a good time to make some resolutions, release attachment to what’s outside of our control, and focus on strengthening our mastery over what is within our control. The Moon in Gemini sextile Mars can see the mind and emotions stimulated and there can be enthusiasm and optimism about the future, even if there are a lot of unknowns. 


This morning begins with a void of course Gemini Moon, and Mercury entering Sagittarius just before noon PST. Mercury here will go on to conjoin the Sun in Sagittarius, and this can see a lot coming to light and being revealed. With Mars also in trine to the Sagittarius luminaries, there can be a strong push towards truth, knowledge, wisdom, learning, and expansion, and an insatiable curiosity. Under the Mercury in Sagittarius cycle, people can definitely shoot from the hip, and be more apt to tell it like it is. This can also see people eager to learn new things or open their minds to something new or foreign to them. We can really enjoy interactions where there is a lot to be learned from them, or there is a teacher/student dynamic, on either or both sides. (It’s always both, we are all always both teacher and student simultaneously.) Optimism can increase under this cycle. With the Moon in Gemini for majority of the day only making a couple of minor aspects, one being a sesquisquare to Venus in Scorpio, this can see our minds on our money but also our relationships. Joint assets, investments and involvements. The Gemini Moon can see the day focused on various comings and goings, thinking, planning and communications, small errands, seeking out information, and the like. At 7:33 PM PST, the Moon enters the more emotionally sensitive realms of Cancer, making a square to Chiron, which can see some feelings of vulnerability or sensitivity arise. With both the Sun and Mercury sextile to Chiron in Aries now, it points to the value of talking it out, as well as taking things in philosophical and open minded stride, and gaining perspective on emotional processes. There’s a lot of growth, optimism, generosity, and expansiveness available in these configurations, and people can be surprisingly receptive if you open up to them. 


This morning see’s the Moon in emo Cancer square to Chiron in Aries, trine Venus in Scorpio, and sextile Uranus in Taurus. This can see some surprising or unexpected moments interpersonally and even materially. There can be some shocks, or something or someone can function as a motivating and inspiring catalyst or at least inspire us to continue on the path we are already on. In some cases there can be some butthurt in the atmosphere. Simulataneously, we could receive some gifts or some other sort of blessing or leg up that makes life more beautiful and pleasant. There can be some interesting and pleasant connections and happenings today. The Moon goes on to square Mars in Aries and trine Neptune in Pisces. Moon/mars aspects can sometimes see irritability or “crotchety vibes”, but in the case of the square they can also indicate action and initiative. There's the potential for emotional intensity that can be too much for people that prefer a more self contained and practical focus that emphasizes shared humanity, forward movement, humor and optimism, and minimizes petty squabbles, resentments, corrosive attacks, or emotional extremism.  There’s a lot of inspiration available within these configurations, there’s also a lot of compassion, creativity, acceptance, and understanding. Compassionately releasing what's not within your control and what no longer serves you and focus on what is within your control and what best serves your personal growth, inner peace, productivity, and healing, and you can't go far wrong. The emotional impulsiveness of the Moon/Mars square is tempered by the passive and more retiring, introverted trine to Neptune. These configurations can produce an interesting effect of “liquid courage”, even if you don’t drink. There is something disinhibiting about this math that can sort of loosen people up, but can also see a healing and cathartic release. Careful not to emotionally unload on others too much under the Cancer lunation, you could be coming off more overpowering or intense than you realize, although there's quite a forgiving atmosphere, it doesn't negate the potential for there to be some emotional clashes. With the Moon in trine to Venus all day, we can be more in touch with and at home with our deeper instinctual side. We might also be subtly at war with it (Moon square Mars.) Perhaps we want something or someone we feel we shouldn’t, or is somehow out of reach in some way, or we experience others who are pushy, willful or demanding of us and it doesn't sit well. Our own wills could be at odds with others somehow. This intense energy has to go somewhere, even if it’s felt to be pleasant and enjoyable, which is entirely possible. The lunar square to Mars definitely catalyzes action, and one way or another, an intense momentum builds to make huge strides towards transformations. It’s possible that these configurations can prompt us to learn more about what it is that’s motivating us, and/or others. Also possible is an emphasis the art of boundaries and of saying "No." The Moon goes on to oppose Pluto in the late evening hours, bringing the more Plutonic elements of certain dynamics into play. Power dynamics, power, control, and it's abuse, love/hate relationships, obsessions, compulsions, taboos, what is submerged, various fears and desires. There is an understated intensity whenever the Moon enters Cancer and aspects the Capricorn stellium. There are changes and transformations occurring, and this energy can be excellent when funneled into constructive projects. Otherwise, take care to avoid emotionally manipulative people or dynamics as there can be a tendency for people to exhibit or provoke extremes. Give emotional roller coasters a wide berth, as people can have less restraint, impulse control, and tend to go overboard emotionally or in communications. In some cases, this can be positive and cathartic. In others, in can be intense and exhausting. Choose your battles. 


This morning see’s the Moon in Cancer trine Venus and Juno in Scorpio, Neptune in Pisces, square Mars in Aries, and opposite Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto. Something can be stirring interpersonally and or materially, at least in the depths of the unconscious, and in general, some intense situations and transformations are unfolding that can have a fated or deeply impactful, or serendipitous quality. However, the major stars of todays show are the lunar oppositions to the Cap stellium. It’s clear that some pretty major shifts are happening here, and there is a huge emphasis on metamorphosis and transformation. There can be a serious tone to the day, with the possibility for some impatience, challenges, or frustrations. Even if we feel left to our own devices or thrown into a tailspin in a certain sense, or there is a serious or somewhat somber tone to events, there are certain others backing us in our process of transformation or right of passage 100 percent. Even if we’re unaware we are supported, we are definitely supported.  There is a sort of tunnel vision about this energy that can see us very emotionally invested in a goal, or very present to a process, with a strong desire to level up or see something through. There can also be some impulsiveness or simply a lot of activity going on. The lunar opposition to Saturn suggests that emotional considerations can be temporarily taking a back seat to practical necessity or long-term goals. It also can suggest that serious and weighty matters are bringing people together and are at the forefront of events, and it might be necessary to slow down. Things can call for patience, fortitude and emotional resilience. The lunar trine to Juno in Scorpio however, suggests that a commitment to bossing up, or exhibiting maturity and stability isn’t lost on everyone, and there can be powerful people quietly cheering us on or lending their support, shoulder, and encouragement, or matching our energy, even unknowingly. It could be that certain milestones are being reached, or are about to be. There can also be a lot of emotional pressure felt under these aspects, and there can be some intense situations going on. In the micro and macro dynamics, the potential for certain parties attempting to use guilt, pressure, shame, withholding, bitterness, resentments, power imbalances, bribes, manipulation, or to otherwise attempt to exert undue, or excessive control or erosion of boundaries or rights of other parties will need careful observation and handling. It's a slippery slope, but there's a lot of powerful energy available that can obviously be used positively as well. Intensity is the keyword, and this can take on many forms. It's also simply possible that something really heavy is going on that requires emotional presence and empathy. In spite of this somewhat intense background energy facilitating drastic breakdowns and breakthroughs, there's some really positive things unfolding, especially if people can rise above petty control issues, and cultivate Agape love, compassion, empathy, and prioritize inner and outer peace and stability amidst great change, along with faith in the process. Fate is at work here in one way or another.  Later in the evening hours, the Moon goes on to trine Mercury in Sagittarius, and optimism can be growing, and levity can be brought to weighty or rather intense matters. It’s possible we could receive some good news or a broader perspective over the next few days, some of which can all be quite unexpected. This weekend can see some excitement in the air as positive and healing changes are set into motion. An inner and/or outer adventure can be unfolding and we can be embarking on some kind of journey.  



Friday morning see’s the Moon enter showy, playful, and theatrical Leo, trine the Sun and Mercury in optimistic Sagittarius and Chiron in courageous Aries, while squaring Uranus in Taurus. There can be some “upgrades” to celebrate, perhaps some good news has been received that increases confidence and ushers in some revolutionizing practical changes. There can be a lot of excitement and exuberance under these configurations, and even a lot of healing potential. Communications are definitely highlighted, and it can be easy to build enthusiasm by bouncing creative ideas back and forth. A lot of passion and enthusiasm here, a somewhat celebratory atmosphere in spite of the more somber influence of a lingering lunar opposition to Saturn in late Capricorn until afternoon.  Evening see’s the potential for some really healing conversations and people can be more transparent and open with one another. There’s an erratic nature to the day with a lunar square to Uranus, people are definitely flying their freak flags and doing their own things, but the fun they are having or the courage and confidence they are exhibiting can be infectious. Saturday the 5th see’s the Moon in Leo trine the Sun in broadminded Sagittarius and Mars in Aries, while squaring Venus in sensitive Scorpio. There is a lot of passion, drive, motivation, energy, enthusiasm and initiative here, but with the Moon in Leo square Venus and Juno, there is a small potential here for some petty squabbles or personal dramas. The signs involved with this particular aspect can sometimes indicate jealousy, envy, power plays or competition. Equally however, there can also be some recognition coming in, but there can also be some interesting initiatives going on interpersonally or financially. All of the above is possible. Sunday the 6th see’s the Moon enter detail oriented Virgo around noon PST, to square Mercury in Sagittarius and trine Uranus in Taurus. It’s possible some critical communications can come in or be dished out after a highly exuberant, rather playful and expansive weekend that contained the potential for some drama. Conversely, it could be that the details of expansive initiatives are being discussed, planned or thought out. The lunar trine to Uranus suggests a bit of an experiment is underway in regards to new initiatives. These configurations look like the artist critically examining their own work and seeking to make improvements where necessary. Try not to get deflated by your own (or others) criticisms. It takes a lot of courage to create and to put yourself out there in any way, but it’s really easy to be a critic. Next week can see us inching towards entering into uncharted territory either personally, creatively or financially. This will take courage and bravery, but it looks set to be very beneficial and have longterm potential. 

Monday, November 23, 2020




We begin this week with the Moon still in sensitive and imaginative Pisces, trine Mercury and the relationship asteroid Juno, in Scorpio, conjunct boundary dissolving Neptune, and going on to sextile Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn.  This can see a reflective, compassionate, and impressionable atmosphere, and some deep conversations or thoughts, amidst a backdrop of  “solid duty, responsibility, and longterm goals. With an emphasis on Pisces/Neptune at the moment, some things may feel out of reach, intangible, sacrificed or sublimated to broader goals or the larger picture. Nonetheless, there are various opportunities throughout today that can allow for some deeply human communications and compassionate, perhaps implicit understandings. There is a great deal of emotional generosity in todays configurations, along with a strong capacity for self reflection. The Sun in Sagittarius forming a trine to Chiron in Aries can lend a growing feeling of buoyancy, optimism, strength, and confidence. A feeling that there is the ability to rise above any problems or challenges. The evening ends on a reflective, forward looking, determined and philosophical note. There is a definite structured plan unfolding, and when the Moon enters Aries tomorrow, another push forward in taking actions and making power moves towards the realization of long term goals occurs. Sally forth, and godspeed.


The Moon enters Aries early this morning, conjoined Chiron, trine the Sun in Sagittarius, and sesquisquare Mercury in Scorpio. Erring on the side of counting to 10 before reacting to any emotional situations isn’t a bad idea here, otherwise this aspect can make people feel frustrated in trying to get their point across or simply misunderstood. A lunar quincunx to Venus suggests a need to balance getting along in simpatico with others while also remaining true to ourselves. Venus opposite Uranus now can see an oddly contradictory energy that is simultaneously close yet distant. A “radically detached attachment” may be required to accommodate shifting circumstances and people. It’s possible people may need a lot of breathing space in pursuit of their individual goals under this aspect. Positively, this aspect can provide the opportunity and space for people to explore their deeper authentic selves, desires, needs,  hidden emotional processes, and instinctual individuality. It can produce some “shocking,” “unorthodox”, “experimental”, or highly unusual situations, interpersonally and even economically/fiscally. This aspect produces a highly unpredictable atmosphere, and this can manifest itself both interpersonally and financially. It’s quite a wild card. Today see’s an active and energetic day, with the Moon in Aries conjunct Mars and trine the Sun in Sagittarius, travel, study, higher learning, open mindedness, growth and expansion are highlighted. There’s a lot of optimism, courage, motivation, and drive available in these configurations. 


Today see’s the Moon in impulsive Aries holding it’s conjunction to Mars. This can kind of see everyone on their own personal missions, and it can also see a somewhat emotionally impulsive atmosphere. The feelings of others can be an afterthought under this aspect, but fortunately, Mercury in Scorpio in trine to Neptune can lend sensitivity and implicit, even unspoken understandings. Later this afternoon the Moon goes on to square Pluto, which can see some emotional intensity. This isn’t a problem if you have a constructive goal to chip away at and can funnel any excessive or intense psychic or emotive currents into a creative or constructive project. If you have a longterm goal to funnel this bad boy into, kick ass. Otherwise, this aspect also carries the potential for interpersonal dramas, power struggles, petty personal squabbles, and things that simply do not lead to a peaceful, quiet, simple, or tranquil life. The Moon also goes on to square Jupiter as well, which can certainly magnify and multiply the drive and intensity in the atmosphere. There can be an intense focus on a goal, person, or situation here. Energy wise, there is a lot of resilience, with deep reserves to tap into, and a lot of ground can be covered and much can be accomplished under the Aries lunation. Squares are best utilized to facilitate breakthroughs as they function as a catalyst towards taking action. 


Today begins with the Moon in the later degrees of Aries, conjunct Mars, and square Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto. Things can require patience, endurance, maturity, and resilience now. Any obstacles encountered can be improvised around during the Taurus lunation, and with some unexpected ease. However, it’s possible our own goals, needs, feelings, values, habits, or idiosyncrasies etc.. are somewhat out of sync with those of certain others, or there’s simply a very unpredictable or highly unusual interpersonal environment to navigate. Today is another action oriented day with more opportunity to cover a lot of ground in regards to longterm objectives. Consistency, focus, and discipline is key, as drive and energy are abundant. Around 8 PM PST, the Moon moves into tactile and physical Taurus, to oppose Venus and conjoin Uranus, still holding a square to Jupiter and Saturn. This can see some changes in approach, terrain or trajectory, and a decisive contraction in one area and an expansion in another. A subtle lunar semisquare to Neptune can suggest some sacrifices are made in pursuit of a goal. There can be some surprises. The Taurus lunation over the weekend highlights the delicate balancing act of our own needs and goals and those of others. As long as we are staying true and honest to ourselves, and our ‘Tegrity(TM), ultimately everyone else benefits as well.



Friday see’s the Moon in earthy Taurus, conjunct Uranus, and opposite Venus in Scorpio. This can highlight a balancing process between our own needs and those of others, under a period of change, transformation, and transition. The Moon in Taurus highlights the practical side of life, as well as slow and deliberate progress. With Uranus involved in each Taurus lunation, this brings to the fore what can really only be termed as “uncommon common sense.” Oftentimes, solutions to our most pressing challenges or problems are very simple and can involve things that are right under our noses. Small tweaks and adjustments can make all the difference in the world. It’s clear that adjustments will need to be made to accommodate the transformations we would like to see unfold in our lives, and that in the future, we will be managing our time, energy, and commitments very differently. With Venus and Mercury now rolling through Scorpio, the intense and instinctual side of life is brought to fore, but regardless of what we may desire, it is practical reality that ultimately has all of the trump cards. For some, it can be that what we desire on the deepest and most instinctual levels is somehow clashing with the necessity of practicality. If you can somehow utilize the intense and transformative energies of the Scorpio transits to manifest a solid foundation for yourself, as opposed to seeing the necessity of practical reality to be out of step with your deeper needs, so much the better. Otherwise this can see people fighting a current, or at war with themselves. The weekend highlights the practical shifts that need to occur in order to facilitate a much larger, longterm transformation. Saturday see’s the Moon in Taurus trine Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto, while sextile to Neptune and opposite Mercury. Neptune, the planet of dreams, dissolution, fantasies, mysticism, universal compassion, and the unconscious, also stations direct today. There can be an abundance to work with at our disposal, these configurations bring to mind the card of the Magician in the Tarot, particularly with Mercury’s involvement. A process of manifestation can be underway, and there is some powerful ideals behind this. There can be some fortunate encounters here, and with Mercury now sextile Jupiter, Pluto, AND Saturn (as of today), certain plans are coming closer to being nailed down and actualized. Previous instinctual processes or dynamics can begin to be harnessed for positive and practical aims, and will no longer feel so out of control or too overwhelming to marshal and direct. Even if there are some disagreements or conflicts in values, desires, or emotional needs/styles, there is a lot of cooperation and common values that can bring disparate elements together into a purposeful, mutual advancement with long range benefits. Sunday the 29th see’s the Moon enter curious and multitasking Gemini, placing an emphasis on communications and things going on in the local environment. This places the Moon in opposition to the Sun in broadminded Sagittarius, in preparation for tomorrows Full Moon eclipse. We are preparing for a rather fated juncture here, as the north and south nodes involvement will indicate. A sort of learning curve. Today the Moon in Gemini sextiles Chiron, adding to the Sun in Sagittarius’ trine to the wounded healer, emphasizing the impetus towards healing. We are entering a sort of learning curve. A lunar trine to Saturn in the final degrees in Capricorn as well emphasizes a sort of “resolution” going forward, a sort of completion process is underway, and we can be making commitments to ourselves as both Saturn and Jupiter prepare to enter a new area of our natal chart in December. Today can see us talking and thinking about this process, and can highlight things like time management for the longterm. With a Full Moon eclipse tomorrow, we can be closing out a cycle and preparing to take initiatives in kicking off a new one. This may increase our commitments in certain areas, and there can be something experimental about the terrain we are entering, which can mean there are a lot of unknowns. With Saturn and Jupiter still in Capricorn, the lesson is still very much an “internal locus of control.” Focusing on what it is that you personally have control over. Jupiter and Saturn here also emphasize simplicity, minimizing any unnecessary over complication, to make for a more clean and streamlined itinerary going forward. Having definite and self directed (Mars in Aries) goals in mind can help make the best of these transits and the transits to come.
