The Moon enters partnership and collaboration oriented Libra this morning, as Venus, planet of love and money, enters unconventional and humanitarian Aquarius. Here, Venus prioritizes friendship, independence, individuation, and a shared vision of the future, and she is more inclined to be friendly and perhaps a bit emotionally detached, and more inclined to focus on the future possibilities than she is to cling to the past, appeal to authority, or the status quo. This particular Venus cycle can see some very interesting and beneficial alliances forming, and we can reap unique benefits through immersing ourselves into community somehow, whether that be some type of fringe community, social networks, friendships, groups with shared goals, likeminded weirdos and the like. Whatever is unique, experimental, and “out there” can hold appeal and potentially offer up surprising benefits. The Moon conjoins the Part Of Fortune this morning as well as forming fortuitous trines to the Sun, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius-but opposing Chiron in Aries. These are some very good trends, but perhaps there’s an element of vulnerability and risk that accompanies the somewhat unpredictable quality of particular blessings, associations, or moves that are outside of our usual terrain or patterns. With Mercury now backtracking through Aquarius, it’s slightly weaker than normal, and with Mars in Taurus still squaring up to Jupiter while conjunct Uranus, it will serve everyone well not to make gross overestimations, -or get too cocky. Conversely, same drug, different arm, don’t stand in your own way or be too stubborn or bullheaded or set in your own ways to take advantage of the unique, (if rather unconventional or highly unusual) opportunities these configurations can (and will) offer up. Today’s configurations can see a lot of generosity and solidarity, and it seems like many are focused on catching their footing (Moon trine Saturn). A lunar quincunx to Uranus can see some impulsivity and excitability, and there can be a need to make some adjustments to adapt to the new trends unfolding. Lunar/Chiron configuration can see a sensitive atmosphere, and there can be some highly unusual situations or circumstances that are keeping people on their toes, but also a greater concern for and sensitivity towards the welfare of others. There’s a vulnerability here, sure, but there are enough positive trends in these configurations to counterbalance this. A lunar sesquisquare to Mercury (now retrograde) can emphasize importance of counting to 10 before jumping the gun or making reactionary moves or statements, particularly if you notice the feelings are very involved or provoked by something. For the most part, today can see some really good vibes, and there can be a lot of optimism around the future, and the new and strange possibilities opening up. A lot of solidarity and good will can be in the atmosphere,-along with an air of “experimentation”- and it can feel like there is a lot to look forward to, as new initiatives or endeavors are getting off the ground that can shift the direction of things significantly. There is a “liberating” quality to these configurations. 


This morning begins with the Moon in Libra trine the Sun and Jupiter in Aquarius. The Sun also conjoins Mercury and Jupiter, and Venus conjoins Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius as well. In spite of some heavier influences, we can be feeling optimistic around partnerships, collaborations, relationships, friendships, goals, finances, and visions of the future, as if our world is figuratively and literally expanding. A favorable shift in power and a trend towards the greater good and justice can be felt here. The Moon goes on to trine Mercury and it’s possible we could hear from someone or give or receive some good news, deals, or offers, perhaps unexpectedly. This can be something perhaps laid on the table previously being brought up or examined more seriously once again. This can see a lot of focus on communications, and even trade and commerce is highlighted here. The Moon throws in a square to Pluto on top of this, so this adds a layer of intensity, power, or clout, to whatever this is. Secrets can come to light or things that have been submerged can see the light of day. There may be a need to retreat a bit to form a plan/approach/or strategy to whatever is being brought up or unfolding here, as there may be a lot to consider. The lunar square to Pluto basically throws shade on the otherwise easygoing and humanitarian configurations and just intensifies the atmosphere. There can be a focus on righting wrongs. There could also be some obsessiveness or compulsiveness, hype, fear, etc. These configurations can also highlight secret, backdoor deals or insider info, exposures, or there can be something “taboo” (or even occult?) ..or perhaps dark, even macabre, to whatever is being discussed, thought about, revealed, or considered here. Pluto brings a sort of freaky heaviness to the table, and in it’s classic “Hades” fashion, it wants what it wants and will negotiate (or in some cases, manipulate) in order to get it, or simply just not back down, doubling down instead of buckling. This isn’t all terrible, it just illustrates the *potential* for some heavy handedness, power plays, (bribery? Pushiness? One track, do or die thinking? Desperation?) possibly on the part of people in more powerful or less vulnerable positions than certain others. However these configurations manifest, Pluto brings a heavy breathing intensity to the table that strikes a hard bargain that could be difficult to refute, as it's an uncompromising planet. Late evening see’s the Moon in late Libra also begin to build a square to Venus, freshly in Aquarius. Combined with the other aspects, (not to mention Saturn/Uranus) this can see some waffling back and forth or perhaps just a bit of a difficulty navigating either our own or others powerful instincts, drives, emotions, instability, etc. These aspects could see some sort of deals trying to go down and if this is the case, it appears one party has more clout, power, certainty, or experience than another, or in the very least, there is some sort of power dynamic involved here that can perhaps overwhelm the less prepared or less experienced party.  There is a sort of “let’s make a deal” quality to these aspects, and there can be shadiness being exposed. On a purely individual note, these configurations have a sort of “Nancy Drew” investigative quality, that can be excellent for research or diving in deeper around something that really intrigues us. Moon/Mercury/Pluto has a somewhat obsessive and tunnel vision quality to it that really cuts to the essence of things, and provides a laser focus that can see people unusually preoccupied with something at the exclusion of all else, watching something or someone like a fucking hawk.  With the Moon about to enter Scorpio tomorrow, it could be that some tempting offers or deals are thrown on the table that open up a sort of pandoras box. As generic as this is, I would just advise anyone to be careful what you sign or agree to under a Mercury retrograde, as it’s typically a better time for reviewing/revisioning/reconsidering/reworking ..etc.. the things you’ve already got going on. As for stonks and crympto go, keep your eye’s on tomorrow, as there could be some shifts to navigate, mitigate, or take into consideration. It's an atmosphere of extremes.


This morning see’s the Moon enter intense, sensitive, and instinctual Scorpio at 6:15 AM PST. This places the Moon in square to Venus, Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius, and in opposition to both Mars and Uranus in Taurus today. There is a decided restlessness to these configurations, and perhaps a bit of uneasiness as we wrestle with conflicting feelings. These configurations have an unpredictable quality that can see people feeling somewhat out of sorts, and liable to extreme bandwidths. Letting off some steam through grounding physical activities can be of help here. The lunar square to Saturn can create some blockades but also present opportunities to turn lemons into lemonade so to speak. With so many squares in todays math this can be a somewhat “action packed day” that keeps us on our toes, or if your in the stonk and crympto markets, on the edge of your seats. It might be wise for people to think before they act on their feelings today, as the feelings can be rather unstable under the Scorpio lunation. It’s also possible that there’s an element of extreme hype with no substance, or fear mongering going on, so taking care to focus on that which is in your control, and keep in mind that the intensity of the Scorpio lunation will pass. There is a grit and determination to these aspects and there is a lot that is unconventional about it. With Moon/Uranus opposition, there can be some shocks and surprises today that seem larger than life, or in the very least, something can be blown way out of proportion. Take care to respond as opposed to react. In some cases it could be someone somewhere is trying to goad you into a particular over the top reaction (or investment) and this could play right into their hands. It can feel somewhat difficult to relax under these influences, perhaps there is some frustrations to grapple with for some, so maybe roll up an extra blunt or 12 to have handy, or double down on whatever relaxation technique you typically rely on. This energy can be great if channeled into productivity, and can even assist us in achieving new levels. Regardless of any sort of unsettling or destabilizing vibes that may accompany some of these aspects, the overall trends look promising. With both Venus and Saturn in Aquarius in sextile to Chiron in Aries, carefully calculated risks can pay off, and there is more courage available to embrace our own uniqueness as well as to venture into unique territory and experiment a bit with different or unorthodox approaches. There can be optimism around new social networks, friendships, alliances, futuristic trends, or ideas that are ahead of their time, or that have been sorely underestimated in the past. If these aspects do happen to get you worked up (hyphy) or even fearful (which, the potential for fear mongering and/or hype is there, but not a given), take heart that things will lighten up soon and this too shall pass. 


Today see’s the Moon in brooding Scorpio squaring up to the Sun, Jupiter, and Mercury in Aquarius, opposing Mars in Taurus and trine Neptune in Pisces. There can be some very good hunches and intuitive nudges under these aspects, and the instinctual and intuitive capacities can be pretty strong. There can also be a lot of indecision and instability as well.  Conversely, these aspects can also err on the side of over idealization, as Scorpio tends towards extremes, and Jupiter, excess, and boundless optimism. However, maybe there is something to be feeling pretty damn good about here, and perhaps it can also be a case of the power of positive thinking.  There can be an emphasis on healing.  Today can be good for engaging the reflective and intuitive capacities, as there may still be some inner conflicts to grapple with here. We are in a Mercury Rx, so it’s a good idea to slow down and reflect, and take time over decisions, even if there is a sort of false sense of urgency spurring us on towards radical change. The lunar/Neptune trine can be a nice, soothing balm that helps to calm the beast within and release control over anything that falls outside of our locus of control. It can also see a lot of compassion as well, and even an increase of interest in the occult or spiritual matters, or bringing healing to people who have been harmed. Later, the Moon forms a sextile to Pluto which can see the mind drift to deeper places and conversations as well can veer into more esoteric or “taboo” topics. The lunar square to Mercury all day can see the mind very inquisitive, and the trine to Neptune and sextile to Pluto can see a desire to delve deeper into whatever mysteries have piqued our curiosity. But these configurations aren’t exactly a fan of making small talk or talking about the weather, they favor a deeper and more substantive or even mystical fare. This can produce some deep insights, even while on our own, in solitude, and we can be more receptive to subtlety. Great configurations for artists, musicians, or people interested in esoteric matters. The lunar sextile to Pluto can give the emotions great power, and produce some impactful experiences. The Moon will shift into optimistic Sagittarius tomorrow, getting the weekend off to a pleasing, and more sociable start.



Friday see’s the Moon enter happy go lucky Sagittarius around 9:16 AM PST. Here, the Moon first forms a trine to Chiron in Aries, which can see a boost in confidence, courage, optimism and self belief that perhaps comes as a relief after the minor turbulence, real or perceived challenges, vulnerability, and instability offered up by the intense  Scorpio lunation. Next, the Moon forms a friendly sextile to both Venus and Saturn in Aquarius. This is both comforting, enlivening, and stabilizing. It’s as if things are falling into a sort of reliable groove, or we’ve reached a “home safe” kind of milestone that also represents something entirely new for us. I almost hear an audible sigh of relief when I look at these aspects, like “Whew. We did it.” Almost like climbing up to a new level in something. There can be something about this that is like a sort of "cosmic justice". There’s a pleasant sociability to these aspects, and the lunar trine to Chiron also brings opportunities to have healing exchanges with others. There’s a lot of good vibes contained in these configurations, and in some ways there can be a sense of being vindicated somehow. The Moon is also conjunct Juno as well, so we can feel very supported and there is a lot of good will between ourselves and others. Late night throws in the lunar sextile to Jupiter, so the positive vibes and good will only grow and increase in magnitude. Perhaps there’s even something to celebrate? These aspects bode well for money, investments, stonks/crympto, as well as relationships, friendships and the social life, -as long as people don’t get too far ahead of themselves. Saturday morning see’s the Moon in optimistic Sagittarius sextile indulgent Jupiter and square sensitive, empathic, but delusional Neptune. The Moon swaps the Jupiter sextile for a sextile with the Sun midmorning, and adds in a sextile to Mercury Rx as the day wears on. Altogether, this can make for some heightened feelings, and place emphasis on communications, goals, social networks, and friendships. The lunar/Neptune square can create a lot of confusion, but can also disinhibit people, perhaps to a point of oversharing and feeling out on a limb afterwards. Saturday looks good for chillaxing and good times, but not so great for making any sort of decisions that might require a more sober view of things, as it’s a little drunk at the wheel. Sunday see’s the Moon enter stoic and reserved Capricorn at 12:52 PM PST, where it will square Chiron, which can perhaps see a bit of vulnerability. Simultaneously, the Moon in Cap trines Uranus in Taurus, which almost adds a sly grin of “yea I said that/did that.” Or “Yea I’m actually doing this. So what?” It’s a weird admixture of vulnerability and completely unashamed authenticity that has an oddly liberating nature to it. Sunday can see a focus on new and exciting activities, approaches, initiatives, plans, and calculated risks, and a momentum can be building around this somehow that will begin next week in an action oriented and ambitious frame that has a quiet determination about it. A slow and determined effort towards making radical shifts.

Sunday, January 24, 2021



The early morning hours still see la lune in curious and talkative Gemini in trine to Mercury in iconoclastic Aquarius.  This aspect shed light on the importance to the psychological concept of authenticity and the “true self”, as well as generating new, and original ideas and concepts on the fly, for fun, -and for mental and emotional wellbeing. How in touch with your “true self” are you? Do you let it out to play? With both Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius, the pressure to conform comes up against the desire to remain true to ourselves. Being unabashedly who we really are, and individuating, being our own best friend, regardless of what groupthink or the crowd mind thinks or say’s about it (which can sometimes be rather nasty, let’s face it, there are a lot of people who are repressed, hypercritical, judgmental, fearful, and unhappy with themselves)- is the challenge -and the opportunity of Saturn in Aquarius. If you can live and behave authentically, by your own inner creed, in spite of immense pressure to do the opposite of that-even magazine articles in grocery store lines with articles that boast titles such as “Toxic Individualism”-then thank you, you’re granting others permission to also be their true and authentic selves as well, which is inherently healing in a culture that is rapidly normalizing a sort of malignant, collective shame and fear that, if we’re really honest with ourselves, defies all logic-(the anthropological evidence of which will, quite tragically,- all just wind up inside of a beached whales stomach at some point-ironically, all in the name of “science.”)  The Moon enters emotionally sensitive Cancer at 10:52 AM PST, to square Chiron, and going on to sextile Uranus in Taurus in the early evening. With the Sun in Aquarius sextile to Chiron, while the Moon in clannish Cancer squares it, in some way, it’s possible that a comfort zone of ours is being challenged. It’s interesting because it almost appears as if the Universe, in pushing people to really step into themselves and their own authenticity, this is simultaneously a cause and a cure to feeling vulnerable, misunderstood, or perhaps a bit lonely or outcasted in someway.  It is our dedication to our own individuation, what we truly feel, who we truly are, and what we truly desire for ourselves, that will ultimately liberate us, assuage our fears and vulnerabilities, and lead to a feeling of deeper security (Moon in Cancer sextile Uranus in Taurus). Later this evening, the Moon also sextile’s Mars in Taurus as well, which only adds further impetus and drive towards this radical shift of “really stepping UP, into ourselves.” This can feel challenging, but it’s simultaneously the only medicine that is going to actually induce any true healing, because sad but true: No one else is coming to save us, and showing up for ourselves is what helps us show up for each other. These aspects can see some positive advancements towards goals and initiatives that can increase security (financially, self worth, etc) for the longterm. These aspects can also indicate a sort of liberation from outmoded patterns or attachments that don’t serve us. It can be easier to remove the water wings/inflatable arm floaties, -basically anything that we’ve been attached to that’s only been providing a false sense of security, but is ultimately only functioning as an excuse, and holding us back, and keeping us playing small. 


Today begins with the Moon in Cancer sextile Mars in Taurus and trine Neptune in Pisces. This can see an impetus towards creative initiatives with a psychological and/or physical healing component. There is a lot of compassion and understanding, but there is also a practical bent. Actions can be taken that can be beneficial and there can be some sort of catharsis happening for people on some level as well. The Moon in Cancer goes on to oppose Venus and Pluto in Capricorn. There is a compassionate release and deep transformation to this math that portrays two distinct sides of a coin, and only you will know which side of this you fall on. For one, if you have been accustomed to certain others leaning heavily on you and relying heavily on you to carry them in some way, (emotionally, financially or otherwise, Venus and Pluto both cover a broad and deep spectrum of human experience)- you can be encouraging in them more self empowerment, self sufficiency, and refusing to enable them to continue to cheat themselves out of the beauty and power of their fullest self actualization, which in turn, will allow you the unfettered pursuit and natural born right of your own. This is a gentle, compassionate, and unconditionally loving release (Moon/Neptune). Conversely, if you have been relying heavily on another person to carry something for you that you know deep down, you can, and should, be carrying on your own, you can be beginning the necessary and deeply empowering journey of truly and deeply meeting yourself and uncovering inner strength, resources, unique gifts, talents, capabilities, and resilience that you didn’t even know you had in you, -because your reliance on another person out of a false sense of powerlessness, helplessness, victimhood, low self estimation, insufficiency, fear, or simply a desire to constantly distract yourself-from…yourself- kept you from realizing the full extent of your own awesome powers to mould and direct your life the way you truly want it to be. Congratulations. There are other nuances within the bandwidth of these aspects of course, and it could simply come down to your usual manner of coping with something is simply no longer producing any corn for you. This might feel difficult or challenging at first, there may be some cloying, resistance, or attachments to work through here, but it can also be sensed, if you pay close attention, that a breakthrough is nigh. Try not to struggle against the realization of your own awesomeness. Today can see the potential for some intense interpersonal interactions, but the lunar trine to Neptune suggests that much of these intense transformations is actually going on internally, quietly, reflectively, behind the scenes, or deep inside, as Neptune tends to keep people very much to themselves, and encourages introspection, release, and getting in touch with the unconscious and the intuitive and spiritual faculties. This week we see a Full Moon in Leo, which brings attention to the importance of strengthening the Solar Plexus chakra. We also see Mercury station retrograde in Aquarius as well this weekend, the effects of which can already be felt. This will provide an opportunity for reflection and revision, -of how we can all move forward in a more authentic and self empowering way. Those who have already been initiated into the works of self love, self confidence, self empowerment, authenticity and individuation, -can help to be a lantern that can (hopefully) lead others more deeply into their true selves and their highest callings. Shine on crazy diamonds.


Today begins with the Moon still in emotionally sensitive and security oriented Cancer, opposing Venus and Pluto in matter-of-fact Capricorn and trine Neptune in unconditionally loving Pisces. Could be kind of uncomfortable. It could be some challenges or blockages that facilitate compassion. It could also be that creating and maintaining certain boundaries and cultivating a sense of discipline, for our own and others best interests and security, can still be kind of a theme here. This can be something as basic as resolving to be more lovingly disciplined with ourselves in some way, such as wake up at a certain time everyday and exercise for the longterm benefits of doing so even though it’s more comfy in the short term not to. Or it can be more complex, such as releasing an attachment to a particular person, particular comforts, pattern of behavior, or romanticization of the past (Moon in Cancer trine Neptune), that you know is not emotionally or psychologically healthy for you to cling to, even though it’s become a sort of comfort zone. Whatever the case is for you, these aspects will create a push out of a comfort zone, and challenge us to step more fully into the Solar Plexus and embrace the blessing and responsibility that is our own awesome powers. We may have to be more self reliant in some way that is challenging, or more focused on maintaining security somehow. If you’ve already got some goals set for yourself that you’ve been feeling super passionate about, then this can also be about committing more fully to them and upping the ante in the face of obstacles, or at least preparing to, as we are entering a Mercury Rx which can slow things down. If you don’t have any clear or precise self directed goals yet, then you are probably still in the process of coming home to yourself, which is just as awesome.  With Venus in Capricorn about to perfect it’s conjunction with Pluto tomorrow, this energy isn’t fucking around, and there can be profound shifts interpersonally and/or financially or in regards to power, values or possessions that make an impact, or have a sort of finality, destiny, fate, or inevitability about them. People in stonks, investments, and crypto, take note of tomorrow- as well as Valentines day, when Mercury Rx will perfect a conjunction to Jupiter at 13 degrees, while also conjunct Venus. (Just throwing this out there folks, do what you will with it.) Today can have some emotionally climactic moments about it, as the Moon reaches 29 degrees of Cancer around 6 PM PST, while opposing Venus and Pluto in Capricorn and Saturn in Aquarius. In broad terms, this can see a doubling down on goals, with shifts of power, shifts of alliances, -and/or the moving of money, finances, time, energy, and investments, emotional/financial/energetic or otherwise- into a new, experimental direction. For some this can see changes in image, style, aesthetics, or how people present or share themselves to the world, like an overhaul of PR or something (Venus). For others, this is more complicated,  depending on where you're at, but could be dramatically impacting everyday comforts/security, (moon in Cancer), long-term stability, up levelling and power moves, (Venus/Pluto in Cap), and the future direction of social support network s/groups/friendships/alliances/goals and visions of the future (Jupiter/Saturn/Sun in Aquarius.) It could be a bit of a bumpy ride, but not terrible. A lot of transition though Regardless of whatever is transforming and shifting in your world right now, Mercury will backtrack this weekend to ensure ample time to go over the details and learn whatever we can about this new direction or endeavor, as whatever it is, it’s pushing us beyond whatever we’ve grown comfortable with in the past and into new and experimental territory. The Moon enters theatrical, playful, but dramatic Leo at 6:54 PM PST this evening, to oppose the Sun, Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius, Venus and Pluto in Capricorn, while forming an encouraging trine to healing Chiron in Aries. Even though Mercury is going retrograde this weekend, there is no more going backwards. This energy is decidedly future oriented. If there is any going backwards, it’s to revisit or reconsider something or someone dropped, shelved, stalemated, or never fully considered, nurtured, or investigated fully, that represents a path that has never been trodden. 


Today see’s the Full Moon in charismatic Leo, and everything about it is “so fucking future.”  The Full Moon is exact at 11:16 AM PST. Venus and Pluto make an exact conjunction today in Capricorn, so there’s an element of serious ambition, transformation, metamorphosis, permanent change, or finality to this energy. All or nothing. This aspect ain't playin and Venus is sick of the games. The Sun and Jupiter also reach an exact conjunction, at 9 degrees Aquarius, and there can be a lot of optimism about the future, new alliances, friendships, goals, it can be a very expansive and inspiring energy, and there can be some very fortunate encounters that are mutually beneficial. A sense of solidarity, community, brotherhood, sisterhood. The Moon opposes the Sun, Jupiter and Saturn in liberating and weird Aquarius, while squaring Mars and Uranus in earthy Taurus, and forming a trine to Chiron and Juno. This is some pretty radical energy, and with both the full Moon in Leo and the Sun in futuristic, and humanitarian liberationist Aquarius squaring up to Mars and Uranus, it’s like…anything can happen. It’s a restless, creative, rebellious, fun seeking, action packed energy, and there can be encouraging trends to release whatever inhibitions, situations, patterns, or circumstances that have been keeping us from truly stepping more fully into our own unique destinies. There’s an element of playful shit stirring to these aspects as well, but it appears to be ultimately beneficial. A fresh energy has been trying to come through for a while now. Full Moon’s are about endings, the completion of a cycle, so that a new one can begin in earnest. A new tack is definitely being taken here, and there can be something enlivening and rejuvenating and freeing about what’s unfolding. With the Lunar trine to Chiron and Juno, we can feel emotionally supported from unusual corners, perhaps a new set of friends, or just a sense of solidarity and community can be emerging. Old, outworn attachments, alliances, or simply patterns of behavior or approaches that served a purpose at one point but have outworn their usefulness are being left behind and a new, fresh energy is being let in. Doors are being closed on a particular era and opened on a new one, and the energy is palpable. Around 5 PM PST, the lunar opposition to Saturn relents, and this can see it easier to let our hair down and give in more fully to a sense of excitement and possibility, and release worries or doubts, or simply the effects of the weekly grind. There can be some internal conflict to navigate or some conflicts of interests with others to mitigate. It’s possible that our own personal goals, interests or needs of the moment can clash slightly with those of a group or friendships, or our own desire to explore our interactions with others or engage in the wider community or with new friendships in some way. Things will find their groove, there’s no reason to rush, but there may be a lot of excitement, or some impatience or pressure to perform or show up to contend with, either internally or externally generated. It’s a full Moon though, so… easy tiger. What’s important is that intention and fresh and dynamic energy is set into motion. We may be wanting to push ourselves to do and be a lot right now, and there can be a strong desire to play and explore. It’s also important to recognize the needs of the body, which the Virgo lunation this weekend will help to remind us of. 



Friday see’s the Moon in playful and competitive Leo in opposition to Mercury in Aquarius. There’s excitement but also some indecisiveness to this energy and we may feel pulled in several different directions at once like a kid at an amusement park. When in doubt, slow down and tune into the signals the body is sending. With the Sun squaring Mars and Uranus there’s a lot of dynamic change coming in all at once and it can be easy to let what was a focused and consistent effort towards constructive changes at a sustainable pace become a frantic and scattered drive that spreads your energy way too thin because you get way too excited about all the other exciting possibilities around you and lose touch with your primary modus operandi. The exciting possibilities will still be there after you’ve adapted to and acclimatized yourself to the pace of all the major inner and outer changes you’re manifesting. Don’t drop your own ball on yourself. This full Moon’s primary message was one of self empowerment, so if you feel scattered today and undecided how to handle all the incoming stimuli, fresh energy and changes unfolding, breath into your Solar Plexus chakra and focus on strengthening your center of power. 

Saturday the 30th see’s the Moon enter grounded and earthy Virgo at witching hour, (midnight) PST, to trine Uranus in Taurus.  This will help assimilate all of this fresh energy, new stimuli, and new possibilities and break everything down into smaller chunks that are more easily managed and metabolized. There’s been a lot to take in these past several weeks, and it’s going to help to get organized, adapted, settled in to a workable and sustainable groove. Mercury stations retrograde this morning at 7:52 AM PST, at 26 degrees Aquarius. This retrograde journey will help us refocus on our original intent and get settled in with it before we jet off into a tailspin around all the new, fun and exciting things we can get ourselves into or friendships we could explore. It will conjoin Jupiter and Saturn once again, which will help to plot out a wise and reasoned expansion. When you set a longterm goal that requires daily/weekly/monthly consistency for instance, it actually helps to “underachieve” at first, as opposed to overshoot the mark, so as not to overwhelm yourself by setting a pace or productivity level that is unsustainable and makes you drop too many balls, self sabotage, and give up entirely. The Moon in Virgo trines both Mars and Uranus which can see Saturday be surprisingly productive. There can be a drive here to get organized and we can be excited around setting new, exciting or experimental routines or rituals into place that can be realistically maintained, and slowly increased over time at a manageable and comfortable pace. This energy is about finding a groove with something new, and organizing everything else extraneous to that  (like leisure, social life, etc) around whatever that is, once that new thing, or new level of achievement with that thing is mastered. Examples are numerous, like, going from mastering trading Stonks to slowly integrating Crypto or something. Or slowly going from mastering yoga over time through daily practice, to teaching it. Some people are adjusting to mastering parenthood. Whatever it is for you personally, there’s some goal that has become the mainframe/motherboard in your life and it’s taking you into new, experimental territory, and you’re integrating everything else around that, and even everything else that is orbiting around that is new, exciting, changing and expanding. Evening see’s the Moon oppose Neptune, which can see the evening wind down in a creative, mellow, somewhat loopy or dizzy way.

Sun the 31st see’s the Moon in Virgo form some nice trines to both Venus and Pluto in Capricorn, while opposing Neptune, which overall, can make for some pleasant experiences, even if there’s a bit of confusion, wistfulness or longing going on, there’s a nice energy for tending to the needs of the body and spirit. We can be drawn to unusual pastimes or people, with a creative or spiritual dimension, and there can be some opportunities for some pleasant exchanges with others. There can be a certain “intention setting” and preparation to these configurations, and Monday of next week can begin on a socially or interpersonally focused note that can see people wanting to mingle, gather, commune, and exchange ideas and pleasantries with others or even make new friends and connections.

Sunday, January 17, 2021




Today begins with the Moon in Aries, trine Juno in Sagittarius, conjunct Chiron, and sextile both Saturn (in the morning hours) and Jupiter in Aquarius.  There’s a positive focus on cultivating longterm stability here. The square between Jupiter and Uranus perfects at 6 degrees. This particular square is rife with enthusiasm and excitement around the future on the one hand, but on the other can see a need to cultivate some discernment and temperance around risk taking, impulse control, and make sure “good money isn’t being thrown after bad” so to speak, and that we keep the longterm consequences in mind and view things realistically. There may be many positive trends and things to be excited about, and there’s nothing wrong with a healthy dose of idealism and enthusiasm, but it’s important not to make gross overestimations or over idealizations, or change for the mere sake of it, without considering ramifications.  The Moon in Aries conjunct Chiron and sextile Jupiter can see optimism, drive, courage, and enthusiasm on the one hand, but also sensitivity, empathy and compassion for others that will come in handy. The Moon goes on to square Venus in Capricorn, and it’s possible that there is some subtle opposition to contend with interpersonally, perhaps a certain conflict of drives, boundaries, or values, where perhaps people aren’t on the same page somehow or there are subtle tensions or misunderstandings to contend with, but conversely, there’s also a lot of drive, and a push for some kind of action, and a desire to bring more pleasure into life.  There is compassion, high-mindedness, and emotional generosity available, and the lunar sextile to Jupiter suggests a philosophical attitude and approach to interactions can get around any potential tensions that could arise. Things look supportive for the most part, but some people may be hitting some kind of interpersonal learning curve (Juno in Sagittarius) and there can be an increased requirement for cultivating emotional maturity  (Venus in Capricorn).  With an increased emphasis on Uranus and Aquarius, and the Sun’s ingress into Aquarius tomorrow,  people will need a lot of breathing room, freedom, and independence to explore and experiment, and yes, perhaps fumble, and fall down on their faces a time or two in the process. Venus in Capricorn, having met Uranus in Taurus, has liberated herself, taken more independence, and set herself on a trajectory to passionately, but slowly and steadily achieve her goals and radically improve her situation. Here, Venus knows what she wants, her standards are set high, and she’s rather choosy and particular. Capricorn is about mastery and control, but particularly, mastery and control of the self. If you have any set ideas around the roles other people should be playing or the way that they “should” behave in order to satisfy any preconceived ideas of the way things and people “should” be, or are seeking to control your own internal state via externals, you may run into some frustration under these influences, as people may resist conformity or being put into any boxes and will want to do things their own way-even if their own way results in a faceplant on concrete. So having your own trajectory, goals, and what you have control and power over in your life firmly in mind will function as a solid baseline, and keep you from being super thrown off if others don’t happen to conform to your wishes or your idea of the way things could or should be, and will help keep you focused on whether or not you’re conforming to your *own* wishes- which is the only thing we have any control over anyway at the end of the day. All in all, a positive and self directed day. 


Today see’s the Sun’s annual ingress into the sign of Aquarius. Happy birthday Aquarius! The Moon in Aries sextile’s Mercury in Aquarius, while squaring up to both Venus and Pluto in Capricorn. Today is also MLK day. There could be some unexpected or surprising news, communications, revelations, or wild ideas circulating about, or some sort of “flurry” of strange or surprising happenings, thoughts, feelings. Speaking of feelings, there can also be some intense feelings to contend with, either our own or those of others. Perhaps there is a need to cultivate some detachment or create some space here. Perhaps it’s also a case of something buried but beautiful coming to light. Some kind of personal revolution goin on. I don’t know.  Looking at these configurations has me wondering if I’ll be seeing a lot of The Tower, Judgement, The Empress, Emperor, 2 of Pentacles, and The Star in the tarot reads this week. With the Sun in Aquarius squaring up to Mars and Uranus in Taurus, radical, but slow and measured change is the watchword. It’s possible that there could be some unexpected blockages or challenges to progress, but conversely, it’s also possible that challenges spur us onward and induce radical innovations and surprising breakthroughs. Something could surface today that makes an impact, or we could have some sort of realization or epiphany or plug into some kind of “genius” frequency. There can be some surprising or revealing communications and talks. Another potential under these configurations is a breaking away from controlling, inhibiting, restricting, or domineering influences that may have been holding us back somehow. There’s a lot of rebelliousness and freedom in these configurations. It’s a very fresh energy trying to come in. There’s also a lot of radical change, reform, and transformation. Doing things the way they’ve always been done is going to get you what you’ve always got. This is a time to innovate, experiment, grow, and take calculated risks that can enhance rather than compromise whatever stability we’ve established. There could be an attempt here as well to detach or create distance from intense feelings or people/dynamics/situations/circumstances that are counterintuitive to our growth, expansion, individuation, and modus operandi. The Moon goes on to square the Sun in Aquarius as it heads into the later degrees of Aries. The Taurus lunation can see an interesting inner conflict take place where there appears to be an attempt to create distance or objectivity around instincts, feelings, desires, and drives that are pretty difficult or practically impossible to ignore. Some sort of radical acceptance, breakthrough, transmutation, or change may be in order. With the Sun in Aquarius conjunct both Saturn and Jupiter, placing boundaries/cutting back/pruning/closing out in one area, while expanding in another radically new, experimental, unorthodox, but refreshing, inspiring, and life affirming direction is a potential theme for many. 


This morning can begin on a rather intense, driven, and climactic note, with the Moon in 29 degrees Aries squaring the Sun and Saturn in liberating Aquarius, Pluto in stoic Capricorn, and conjunct both Mars and Uranus in physical and practical Taurus. There can be a sort of wrenching free from something going on here, either energetically or otherwise, a radical departure onward and upward. The Moon enters physical and down to earth Taurus at 10:56 AM PST, conjoining both Mars and Uranus, and squaring the Sun, Saturn, and Jupiter in Aquarius. A continued push, expansion and solidification of new foundations we are laying down and new plans and initiatives we have begun can be highlighted here. The Taurus lunation is mellow, earthy, practical, and very physical, but the aspects involved add a particular ZANG to it. There may be a lot of energy, both physically, and in regards to the frequency coursing through the nervous system. It’s an exciting energy that’s also very grounded in the body. There may be a detachment or objectivity we may be trying to maintain around certain drives, feelings, or instincts, but simultaneously, the lunar squares to the Aquarius transits can see us open to exploring the idea of taking calculated risks. Venus now transiting shy, slow, guarded, demure, but enduring Capricorn begins a sextile to Neptune in mystical and gentle Pisces today. A beautiful alignment for artists, musicians, and hopeless romantics. This can suggest a subtle lowering of walls, and an increased receptivity, sensitivity, and perception of subtlety and nuance. Our impressionability to energy, beauty, music, nature, signs and synchronicity can be increased under the duration of this aspect, and there can be a lot of little signals, gestures, kindnesses, and gentle hints from other people or the universe in general, coming through for people, whether in dreams, omens, music, animal appearances, psychic and emotional impressions, creative expressions, or the like. Enduring links and metaphysical pulls between people can be highlighted, as there’s an otherworldly and highly spiritual quality to this aspect that’s very gentle, natural, effortless, subtle, and sweet, -but it’s also very tangible, very real, substantive. It’s important to pay attention to how our body responds to the energy of particular people or situations, and this aspect will increase our sensitivity, reflective capacity, and receptivity in this regard, and also make creative and artistic inspiration easy to come by. An isolated aspect, sure, but magical, kind, gentle, dreamy, inspiring, and pleasant nonetheless. It’s a shy and rather passive Venus placement, and the link to Neptune doubles the potential for less direct, subtle, and reflective approaches to dynamics. The lunar square to the Sun suggests there could even be something about particular links, pulls, dynamics, patterns, reoccurring phenomena, or certain inevitabilities that we’ve been at odds with or trying to detach from ignore, resist, or get perspective on. The Venus/Neptune link will help us get out of our own way and embrace whatever healing our soul needs, which really just translates to embracing/accepting our own authentic desires.  Today is largely practical, and can see a focus on the future, and entering new, exciting, or experimental terrain. Enthusiasm and optimism can be growing.


Today see’s the Moon in pleasure seeking and practical Taurus form a trine to Venus in shy and steady Capricorn, while conjunct impulsive Mars and Uranus, and square Jupiter in Aquarius. Something’s being shaken up here, perhaps in some rather unexpected ways. There can be an earthy and indulgent atmosphere, with a chance for pleasant exchanges with others or some kind of inspiring or uplifting experiences that can be really motivating. These maths are rather odd looking. It’s like there is a desire to just chill, but there’s some sort of need to kind of fight for our freedom and right to just do that. The Sun in Aquarius sextile to Chiron now can increase our courage around taking modest risks, trying something new, or mingling with/lowering our guard/letting in new people. There can also be some weird circumstances that sort of force/push us into doing that, taking a new tack, or reaching out to new people/friends/neighbors/etc for comfort/safety/protection/security/or just a port of chillitude. (Moon square Mercury.) There’s an impulsiveness to the Moon/Mars/Uranus aspects that can see some odd, erratic, out of character, or contrary behavior from others, and/or ourselves. The Moon goes on to square Mercury in Aquarius, and sextile Neptune. We can feel a little jangled out of our comfort zone, there’s definitely something completely new or unconventional, perhaps shocking or surprising about whatever is going on, what we’re doing, how we’re handling it, whoever we’re talking to, disclosing, or hanging out with here, but it looks to be ultimately beneficial, inspiring, and pleasant in spite of being sort of alien, awkward, or out of the norm as far as circumstances go. It’s potentially really refreshing, but there can definitely be something bizarre or strange about the circumstances that is just sort of awkward, tense, or just weird AF. Venus in Capricorn also conjoins Pluto as well, so certain situations are coming to a head here. There’s a need here for authenticity, disclosure, compassion, and there can be a desire to escape, transform, heal, or seek relief, healing, or protection from intense emotions, powerful pulls, or controlling, dysfunctional dynamics, situations or people. Very weird math. Very divinely guided shit. Something definitely reaching a kind of breakthrough point here. I must say. Holy shit. Evening see’s the Moon in Taurus form a trine to Pluto while sextile to Neptune, trine Venus, and still squaring Mercury in Aquarius. This can see some highly unusual, tense, and weird circumstances, some of which may have been ongoing and slowly escalating over time and just kind of being “endured”,- prompt a sort of radical opening up. These configurations can see a sort of confessional atmosphere, and it can be healing to feel safe to confide in someone or seek relief, liberation, healing, sanctuary, and transformation. There can be some powerful, healing, liberating and even cathartic experiences or discussions under these configurations, but the conditions or circumstances which impel or facilitate them can be really fucking weird.  In either case, something can be radically shifted for the better.


JAN 22-24 2021

Friday see’s a continuation of yesterdays theme with the Moon in down to earth, common sense Taurus squaring Mercury in unconventional Aquarius, and trine Venus and Pluto in Capricorn. So the weekend begins on a note of radically addressing shit that doesn’t make any god damn sense anymore, or simply just radically stepping deeper into our personal truth and individuation, bringing things more into alignment with our values, authenticity, desires, deeper instincts, common sense, and practical reality. Some kind of crazy situation, bizarre, unexpected happening, epiphany, subtle or overt tip off from the universe, breakthrough, radical notion, vision, or disturbance in the force has forced or compelled us to take some sort of action that we perhaps would not have taken otherwise, -and it’s putting things more into alignment with our higher callings, and shifting things into a more positive, healing, and authentic direction, -even if it’s a little out of our normal routine, or what we’ve become super accustomed to. Radical authenticity, breakthroughs, or leaps in personal growth. The Moon spends Friday in Taurus until 11:43 PM PST. In the early eve/late afternoon, we see the Moon trine the Sun, Saturn, and Pluto, signifying the change in dynamics, landscape and atmosphere, -and our growing inner alignment with it. The Sun, Jupiter, and Saturn are all sextile Chiron, highlighting the healing nature to whatever is afoot and shifting here. This can have something to do with a sense of community (Aquarius). This looks beneficial to everyone, all around. Saturday the 23 see’s the Moon in busy and talkative Gemini, in trine to the Sun, Jupiter, and Saturn in Aquarius, and sextile Chiron in Aries, and opposition to Juno in Sagittarius. Overall, this looks really friendly, expansive, and beautiful, and can see a lot going on with siblings or neighbors, groups, goals, new foundations being laid within the local environment, neighborhood, community, or even social media. New alliances, groups, collaborations, or friendships can be forged that look lit AF. There can be a lot going on, and there can be a feeling of optimism, expansiveness, solidarity, or hope about the future, as if our window on the world or the possibilities within it just got a little bit bigger, brighter, better, or just different. Our connections to others can boost our courage and faith in ourselves and future possibilities, goals, and hopes for the future. There can be some good news, a feeling of finding or falling in with soultribe, a whole lot of mental stimulation, discussions, and/ or just an overall vibe that our world is opening up a lot in a way that is stable and compatible with our goals, ambitions, and needs. Good soul medicine. This looks like a fun, curious, expansive, encouraging and positively stimulating time, but also perhaps busy, maybe a lot going on, a lot of comings and goings or communications/things to digest. But overall, some very positive changes that could feel refreshing, while also somewhat new or strange to us. A strange new world, a new community, new people, new possibilities, new perspectives, or... something. Sunday see’s the Moon in talkative and curious Gemini trine Mercury in Aquarius and square Neptune in Pisces. This can see curiosity piqued, and could see some interesting discussions, inspired meanderings, or things to reflect about. There is a certain elusiveness, confusion, heightened feelings/sensitivity to these aspects that can be sort of day dreamy. It’s a loopy, curious, creative, and spacey vibe, with a lot of unknowns, perhaps a lost at sea feeling. Understandable. There’s probably been a lot to take in or adapt to this week. A whole lot of changes and downloads are being integrated, and some of them look pretty exciting. The incoming Mercury retrograde will create an opportunity to reflect on goals, alliances, groups, friendships, and who and what brings out the best in us or aligns us with our souls desire to grow, expand, and evolve.

Friday, January 8, 2021



The Moon enters stoic and disciplined Capricorn at 5:30 AM PST, to trine Mars and Uranus in Taurus while squaring Chiron in Aries. This can see some interesting new initiatives taking off that perhaps have us feeling a little out of our comfort zones or a tad vulnerable in some way. The Moon goes on to conjoin Venus in Capricorn, which is also squaring Chiron. It’s possible that in spite of our vulnerability, new or experimental initiatives are actually going rather well. There can be a creative or aesthetic dimension to whatever we are embarking on now, and for others, this can involve partnerships or finances/money in some way. With Venus now in Capricorn conjoined the Sun, and Mars in earthy Taurus, the emphasis is on slow, stable growth and progress. You will get out of something whatever you put into it. Venus is now holding hands with both Mars and Uranus, which can see some very interesting and innovative ventures. Normally, Venus in Capricorn is rather conservative, but with both Mars and Uranus being in an earth sign as well, this can see some calculated risk taking, and we can be more inclined to take a less conventional route or challenge ourselves to step out of our comfort zones in some way, whether that be creatively, financially, or interpersonally. Fortunately Venus has ended her square to nebulous Neptune, ,which could have been experienced as rather demoralizing and confusing for some. In sure footed Capricorn, hand in hand with Mars and Uranus, she is more singleminded, -although, perhaps a bit vulnerable with a square to Chiron. Venus in Capricorn has never found it easy to express the affections or passions in showy or obvious ways, this placement has a certain quiet dignity about it that some might mistake for “black hearted ice queen.” But her link to Mars and Uranus can make her more inclined towards taking the odd risk or two, either creatively or romantically, especially if there are encouraging signals. The square to Chiron can create a somewhat “out on a limb” feeling around this however, so there could be a lot of inhibitions or vulnerabilities to work through. A new challenge, embodied by Mars square Uranus, can be that while part of us may want to lunge forward, another part of us may hold us back. This can be somewhat tempered by the Mars square to Jupiter however, which by itself can see impetuosity, hasty judgements, or miscalculations. So this combination of aspects can provide a unique alchemical cocktail of energy, drive, forethought, experimentation, and bold but calculated risk taking. Sure, in some ways, this can see us "out on a limb". No matter though, because if cohesion and congruence with others is an issue, or the affections of Venus and the passions/will of Mars are rebuffed, dismissed, resisted, or simply unappreciated, Venus has no qualms striking out on her own and maintaining cool, detached, and confident independence. These configurations can be enormously productive, and with a lunar trine to Uranus, in some way shape or form, we can be stepping into new and exciting territory. Even with the Moon and Venus in demure but earthy Capricorn today, there is a certain excitement and determined ambition in these configurations, that can see us pushing ourselves to new levels of development or achievement. Tomorrow see’s the New Moon in Capricorn, so this week can see us planting a seed regarding something we have possibly planned, thought about, or set intentions around for a long time. Whatever this is, will be a labor of love, as this New Moon coincides with Venus having entered the first decan of Capricorn. Today can see us pleasantly productive, and motivated towards achievement, mastery, and setting a new precedent. For some, there can also be some unexpected but pleasant interpersonal developments, surprising attractions, or romantic/creative/and/or financial revelations. 


This morning see’s the Moon in Capricorn conjunct the Sun and Pluto, while sextile Neptune. This can see something or someone make quite an impact on us, and in the very least, the psyche is receptive and impressionable, and the imagination is positively stimulated. Personally, this can see us driven to achieve our dreams and ideals and make them into a reality. These are some great configurations for artists, musicians, and craftsman of any field, as the ability to actualize or make manifest what we can imagine is a very strong potential under this particular mathscape. There can be some deeply felt and vivid emotions or experiences under these configurations. We can feel really strongly about…something or someone.  In either case, new precedents are being set into place at this New Moon, and this will be obvious as hell in some aspect of your life, which will depend upon the house ruled by Capricorn in your personal natal chart. The New Moon is exact at 9 PM PST, and by this time, is conjoining both Pluto in Capricorn, and Saturn in Aquarius. It’s clear we are setting out on new terrain, which will completely transform our situation in one way or another. This new terrain is rather unprecedented or experimental for us, and will require commitment, discipline, as well as improvisation. Regardless of what it is, or how it takes form in your life, it’s a clear UP-LEVELING. Moving up a level in whatever you’ve been working on in the previous years. A new level of mastery is being reached, and a new seed is being planted regarding ambitions. This seed will require our nurturing, attention and dedication through the next 2 and a half years of the Saturn in Aquarius cycle.  Something new is being birthed, and our feelings around this can be intense, dedicated and very involved. Capricorn is the sign that rules mastery, and we may be inspired towards achieving new heights at this New Moon, and quality will be very important, ( Capricorn has very high standards.) Mastery is achieved through repetition and ritual,-but also through tending to our wellbeing- and the New Moon’s strong trine to the asteroid Vesta really brings this home. Having a good daily ritual in place to nurture your well being will ensure you get the very best out of yourself, -as opposed to running yourself ragged as if you are merely a machine with an off/on button and a charger. We are dynamic, bio-electrical beings, and it’s important to take good care of ourselves if we are to ensure a high quality output and consistent productivity levels. Whatever you are planting at this New Moon, it will require consistency and dedication. So it pays to be consistent and dedicated in our care of ourselves, and make sure we have a good self care ritual in place that can keep us resilient to stress, and feeling as top notch as possible. A solid and consistent self care ritual is the cornerstone of success in any capacity. 


The Moon conjuncts Mercury in Aquarius early this AM, suggesting the possibility for some (perhaps unexpected) communications, or strokes of insight in the wee hours of the morning. We may see or hear something surprising out of the blue, but it can have a positive and stabilizing impact that is reassuring that we’re on the right path. The Moon goes on to enter emotionally detached and unorthodox Aquarius at 8:44 AM PST this morning, where it squares Mars in Taurus, while conjoining Saturn and Jupiter, and even Pluto in the later degrees of Capricorn. This can be a busy and communicative day, that can see a lot of surprising thoughts, talks, or out of the blue communications, or a whole lot of running around and general busyness or restlessness. Emotions can be erratic, with a whole lot of nervous energy, and there can be an impetus to "git 'er done". A lunar sextile to Chiron in Aries suggests that whatever we are hearing or thinking about is giving us courage to continue whatever it is we’re doing, even if it’s put us out on a limb in some ways or made us feel a bit vulnerable, there seem to be encouraging signals that stepping out of our comfort zone in some way is actually leading to good things. Today can contain a lot of surprises, and we may feel more communicative, or experimental regarding our communications. The lunar square to Mars can see some haste, frustration, or impatience, perhaps some irritability in some cases. A Mars/Saturn square can be causing some unexpected delays or blockages which can give rise to frustrations.  It’s possible that we simply need to detach a bit and go off into our own weird science lab in order to tinker with our craft, fix or resolve something that's jamming up the works, or make some adjustments, as ideas can be bubbling to the surface at great speed, and we can feel an eagerness to share them. We can feel more courage to share our thoughts, ideas, or personal brand of weirdness with the wider community in some way under these configurations, and there can be a great deal of interaction or excitement around new and experimental initiatives. We can even be making new friends or connections, or immersing ourselves in a new community of people who are “the good kind of weird.” Regardless, there are encouraging trends, and the lunar sextile to Chiron suggests that embracing our own unique weirdness more whole heartedly and even capitalizing on it a bit, can open up new horizons. Something else that embracing who you are and being unabashedly yourself also does, rather inadvertently, but potently, all the same,- is it gives other people the permission and the courage to do the same. Not everyone is going to like you or accept you, but when you like and accept you, even your haters have to sort of secretly respect you. Todays configurations have “individualism” written all over it, and with the Moon conjunct Mercury, Jupiter, and Saturn in Aquarius, while squaring Mars and Uranus, there’s no telling what cracking open a can of “BE YOURSELF” can unleash. It’s certainly a case of “your vibe attracts your tribe”, with the Moon in sextile to both Chiron in Aries and Juno in Sagittarius. We can be drawn to or inspired by others who are unique or one of a kind in some way, or simply exude confidence in spite of being kind of an outlier, underdog, or garden variety weirdo. Others might be repelled (Moon square Mars), but haters gonna hate, it’s what they do. Simply being yourself does the weed work for you so you don’t have to. Todays math can also see a focus on wider community outreach, friendships, groups, and causes for the greater good. There can be rabble rousing or some kind of SJW protest or other going on. Regardless of what manifests, Aquarius is future minded as well as unabashedly weird, and we may be aligning ourselves with people/communities/thoughts/ideas that encourage us to embrace and express our own unique individuality and liberate ourselves from restrictive self concepts or insecurities. Someone might encourage us to drop an insecurity in some way, or we can simply feel supported in the face of challenges that may feel entirely new to us.


This morning begins with the Moon in Aquarius still conjunct Mercury and Jupiter, and this can see a huge emphasis on communications, community, and ideas that are perhaps ahead of their time. Uranus, ruler of Aquarius and planet of change, shock, liberation and awakening, also stations direct today, adding emphasis to a forward push towards new, exciting, and experimental terrain. Our ideals may have been hugely stoked, and the possibilities regarding certain friendships, communities, groups, the future, and even social media/the internet can feel endless this morning. The lunar conjunction to Mercury carries most of the day, and it can see surprising or enlightening talks, and people can bond over a shared past time, or nerdy niche interest. With Mercury conjunct Jupiter and square Uranus, our minds can be drawn towards whatever or whoever is “outside of the box”, and new ideas can be flowing, we can even receive some strokes of genius or out of the blue news or revelations. It’s possible a particular person may serve as an inspiration and help us generate ideas, with Mercury in sextile to Juno in Sagittarius. Someone or something can really be expanding our horizons right now, and getting us to think outside our comfort zones or in new, experimental or futuristic ways. With Venus in Capricorn in trine to Mars and Uranus, but squaring Chiron, the creative and/or romantic passions may be lit, but there’s a bit of uncertainty or inhibition around fully expressing them or surrendering to them entirely, particularly in the absence of any sort of encouragement or certainty that it will be received well or mutually reciprocated. Fortunately, Venus in Capricorn is no stranger to going it alone in her climb up the mountain, and certainly no stranger to restraint of the passions or a certain amount of decorum and propriety, and the connection to Mars in Taurus adds even more patience, confidence and dignity, even in the face of a certain level of vulnerability. Her connection to Uranus means she can detach and go on an entirely different tack at any time, lending a level of unpredictability, lightness, and independence to interpersonal connections, the affections and creativity, while still being steadfast and reliable. These configurations can also see some unusual or unconventional attractions, something outside our “norm”, or not our “usual type” can appeal to us, or there can be odd dynamics going on that defy norms somehow. In creativity, a new art medium, instrument, or style. In relationship, cultural, religious, or age differences aren’t unusual under Venus/Uranus contacts. These configurations also highlight the importance of actually liking a person and sharing the same ideals, values, proclivities, and vision of the future. Are you the same breed of nerd? Or in the very least, are your respective nerd breeds complimentary to one another? There are thousands of varieties of nerds, and none are precisely the same, but being on completely different nerd spectrums entirely can make relating to one another challenging. Other times, it can be invigorating, and an opportunity for growth or learning. Interpersonally, Venus in Capricorn trine both Mars and Uranus in Taurus places an emphasis on shared values, likes/dislikes/ habits/shared drive/motivation/passion/weirdness/ambition, and most importantly, friendship. These configurations also auger a certain level of independence and freedom to pursue ones respective goals and ambitions, and can certainly make us feel driven. In absence of the above mentioned mutual ingredients, Venus in Capricorn happily throws herself into her upward climb. The square to Chiron indicates it can be lonely at the top of the tower at times, but equally, can make actually acting on the passions in any interpersonal way feel way too vulnerable. Venus here isn’t typically prone to obvious displays as it is, and with a square to Chiron, this can be doubly so, she can be too reminded about “what happened last time”. Mars and Uranus in Taurus lend a quiet passion and courage to take modest (or even bold) risks -with the right amount of encouragement. This can be excellent for creative ventures across the board.


FRI JAN 15-SUN JAN 17 2021.

Fri morning begins with the Moon in the late degrees of Aquarius with no major aspects (void of course). This suggests it might be good to take a step back from taking any major initiatives or lunges forward and maybe wait things out and observe for a bit. The Moon heads into reflective and dreamy Pisces at 2:17 PM PST, where it sextiles Mars and in the evening, Uranus in Taurus, all while squaring Juno in Sagittarius. This can see a drive towards something or someone a bit unusual building up this weekend. We want to taste something or someone weird. The Moon is in passive Pisces though, so maybe we’re just fantasizing about it, I don’t know. The Mars/Uranus conjunction perfects next Tuesday, on Martin Luther King Day, the same day the Sun ingresses into unconventional Aquarius. Perhaps this weekend see’s a prelude to something. These aspects can see us venture into interesting creative territory. It can also simply see a desire to escape, and have a good time, but doing something new, unusual, or outside what’s been our norm. With the Moon in Pisces, this can see some enjoyable or invigorating solitary pursuits, and at the most, some low key hang outs with others. There’s almost something “under the radar”, “secretive” or “speakeasy” about these configurations. 

I say this because the Moon in Pisces is quiet, reflective, solitary, meditative, ethereal, or secret/hidden, while Mars and Uranus are totally fucking exhilarating and very real/tactile/physical. In either case, there’s definitely something unusual about the weekend. Either we are literally slinking/sneaking off to have a good time or simply just dreaming about doing something unusual, perhaps with someone unusual. But the passions and creative drives are definitely quietly stoked. Saturday the 16th see’s the Moon in Pisces sextile Venus in Capricorn and conjoin Neptune, so there’s some creative or romantic fantasizing going on for sure. Perhaps some longing going on here as well. There’s a lot of compassion here for the vulnerabilities of others, and there can be a certain selflessness, but also perhaps some over idealization. The feels can be very sensitive, perhaps a bit overwhelming, and there can be a potential for some slight disillusionment, so putting feelings into a creative or artistic outlet can be very helpful here. A lunar semi square to the Sun in the final degrees of pragmatic and realistic Capricorn today can see some frustrations or clashes between head and heart. In the evening, this same semi square happens between the Moon and Saturn, so it’s possible that certain boundaries need to be asserted that are difficult to do, due to empathy and compassion we may feel, or the sheer amount of emotional sensitivity and the smell of porous boundaries in the atmosphere. Regardless, the maths look quietly pleasant this Saturday, and can see some lovely and soulful experiences. Sunday, the 17th, see’s the Moon in Pisces sextile the Sun and Pluto in Capricorn, while still conjunct Neptune for most of the day. This can make it a bit easier to express ourselves, although a lunar semi square to Mercury that builds in strength in the later hours can produce that same head/heart type of struggle when it comes to navigating emotionally complex communique. A lunar sextile to Saturn and conjunction to Chiron can help stabilize any situation that may have become a bit muddled with confused boundaries or the like. Over all, the day is restful and quiet but rich with feeling, and there can be much to reflect and meditate upon. Next week begins on a more assertive note, with the Moon in Aries, and we will bid farewell to the season of the Goat on Tuesday.

Friday, January 1, 2021



We begin Monday morning with the Moon in Virgo trine Mercury and Pluto in Capricorn, square Venus in Sagittarius, and opposite Neptune in Pisces.  There can be a lot to do as of yet, and we can be very focused on where improvements need to be made and work needs to be put in, and with the Moon square Venus in Sagittarius, the fact that we are outside of a comfort zone and on a learning journey can be emphasized. This can feel somewhat intimidating or can take some getting used to. The afternoon see’s the Moon build trines to Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius as it heads closer to Libra, and this can give us a sort of second wind, or at least add optimism and determination to knuckle down and settle into this weird new world we may have entered. There may be a lot about whatever we are doing or whatever we have going on that may be completely new to us, or at least, is outside of our norm. In some ways, this can see us feeling somewhat vulnerable, as the lunar opposition that is building to Chiron would indicate.  But with the Sun in pragmatic Capricorn in sextile to Neptune, there is something about it all that speaks of realizing dreams and ideals, things we may have imagined for a long time. The remainder of the Virgo lunation focuses in on making improvements, and organizational efforts. Pairing things down into manageable chunks and making alterations to routines that will be sustainable over the longterm.  The Moon enters partnership oriented Libra at 9:42 PM, and with the Moon in trine to Jupiter and Saturn in experimental and unorthodox Aquarius, this can see new interpersonal/collaborative terrain entered or explored, or in the very least we can be interacting with others or the world at large in new ways. New foundations are being laid down, and we may be more open to new things or people, or unconventional scenarios or dynamics. Even if we feel a little out on a limb in certain ways, there can be much about what is transpiring that is a breath of fresh air, and opens up a new window on the world. 


Today begins with the Moon in Libra trine Jupiter and Saturn, opposite Chiron, which places emphasis on expansive and new interpersonal terrain that represents the beginnings of new foundations. Joe Cockers “I get by with a little help from my friends” aptly captures the spirit of these configurations. We may feel out on a limb in certain ways, but the generous lunar trine to Jupiter in friendly Aquarius can highlight the importance of our connections to others when it comes to boosting our morale or helping us out of a tight jam. The Moon goes on to square the Sun in Capricorn, which can see some pressure or deadlines to achieve, so we may need to pick and choose carefully how our time is delineated. But we may be inspired to be of service to the greater good in some way under these configurations. With Juno, the relationship asteroid in trine to Chiron now, it can be easier to come into contact with others who may inadvertently be good for us and help us feel more courage in ourselves, or otherwise be a healing and expansive influence, helping us to feel more faith and optimism. There may be an odd split to navigate between our desire to relate to and connect with others and the equal need to focus on ambitions, goals, practical considerations, and achievement today and throughout the Libra lunation. The desire to fraternize, socialize and otherwise connect with others can feel at odds with whatever goals we may have set for ourselves for the time being, and this can prove somewhat distracting, especially with Mars in the most urgent degree of Aries, due to move into Taurus tomorrow afternoon. Nonetheless, we can use whatever energy is available here with Mars about to ingress into a new sign and chart area to really make some headway on our goals, as the energy will only grow stronger tomorrow, along with the feeling of urgency.


Today see’s the Moon in Libra square the Sun, Mercury, and Pluto in ambitious Capricorn, while opposing Mars in 29 degrees Aries. This can see some breakthrough points in regards to our goals and ambitions in some way. We may be motivated inadvertently or directly by others, but it’s also possible that our personal life may have to take somewhat of a backseat temporarily in order to roll a boulder to the top of a hill. For some, these configurations can produce a sort of “now or never” feeling in regards to partnerships or social life, but it’s important to remember that anyone or anything meant to be in your life will be there, even if you have to work, and anything worth discussing will still be worth discussing in 24 hours.  In the afternoon, the Moon goes on to sextile Mercury in Sagittarius, taking some of the edge of of the lunar links to Mars and Pluto, which are certainly intense and serve as a deep reserve of energy to tap into. We may be feeling more optimism about our interpersonal/creative/ and/or financial situation, and possibilities can feel more open and expansive. With Mars in 29 degrees in trine to Venus in Sagittarius, an arrow has been shot, and we are thinking in terms of the future and of distant horizons. There may be a particular goal (or person) we have in mind, and with Mars in the final degrees of Aries, we are laying down foundations and completing one phase of this journey, -the journey of retrieving our arrow. Mars enters realistic and tactile Taurus at 2:27 PM PST, conjoining Uranus, and squaring both Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius. Here, we have entered ground level of alien territory, and can begin navigating this new terrain with a more hands on approach. Everything about this is experimental, requiring much improvisation. The lunar link to Venus, while Mars and Venus hold hands, as this transition occurs can see some interesting alliances and connections being formed that are outside of the box or outside of our norm in one way or another. There can be something exciting and simultaneously challenging about this. In either case, the people, dynamics, and/or situations we come across during this transit can be very unique, unprecedented, and one of a kind. There’s also a great deal that is unpredictable about these configurations, and the theme of “liberation” is heavily emphasized, so people can be less inclined to be put into any kind of “box” or subscribe to any conventional “norms” under this math scape, as individualism is heavily emphasized. Late evening adds to this even more as the Moon builds an opposition to Uranus as it heads towards instinctual Scorpio. In either case, this can see some surprising interpersonal situations arise, and others can be a source of amusement, surprise, shock or bewilderment with the Moon at 29 degrees Libra late this evening. 


This morning see’s the Moon in intense Scorpio, opposite Mars and Uranus in Taurus, and square Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius. The ground is certainly shifting, along with the playing field. There can definitely be a lot of passionate energy in the atmosphere today. This could be anger, this could simply be a lot of libidinous vibes, but regardless, letting off steam, perhaps through physical endeavors, wouldn’t be a bad idea. There can be some restlessness here, and emotions can be changeable. People can definitely be flying their freak flags, even in quiet or modest ways. With the Moon squaring Jupiter and opposing Uranus, and going on to trine Neptune in the evening hours, there can be an indulgent atmosphere, and things can somewhat quiet down and lead to more reflective or solitary pursuits towards evening, or people simply being weird in private. A lot of surprising emotions can be available under these configurations, and the lunar connection to Neptune in the evening hours can perhaps see us taking a step back to sort of bask in them. There can be private revelations, and intuition and sensitivity can be heightened. We can be very impressionable to our environment, or prone to idealize people, but equally, we can be open to unusual “esp” type experiences, or waves of inspiration with plenty of creative fodder for the imagination. The lunar/Neptune/Uranus contacts in the evening can be excellent for artists and musicians. There’s also a lunar semisquare to Venus in Sagittarius that adds a dimension of love, beauty, and creativity to the mix, and we may be hungry for fresh inspiration and eager to seek it out. This ends the evening on a mellow, introverted, but pleasantly restless vibe, with some unique and impactful experiences due this weekend, perhaps mostly in private, but could involve others to a degree as well.


FRI JAN 8-SUN JAN 10 2021.

Friday see’s Mercury enter unorthodox Aquarius at 4 AM PST, placing the planet of communication and commerce in strong relation to both Jupiter and Saturn, which can see expansive and experimental communication initiatives spotlighted. This can involve a wider community outreach or even the internet in some way. Venus, the planet of love, beauty, money, and possessions, also changes signs today, moving into serious and reserved Capricorn at 7:41 AM PST. Venus shot an arrow in Sagittarius, and in Capricorn, she will climb the mountainous cliffs in order to retrieve it. In Capricorn, Venus is more risk averse, more single minded, committed, and more reserved, prudent and cautious until she knows something or someone is worth her while. Here, she is goal oriented, she knows what or who she wants, and refuses to settle for anything less, and will happily go without until something or someone ticks all her boxes. On top of these ingresses, today see’s the Moon in Scorpio sextile the Sun and Pluto in Cap, and a trine to Neptune in Pisces, and this could see some dreams brought down to reality, particularly in relation to certain goals or ambitions we may have been nurturing. There may be a focus here on bringing things down to earth from the imaginal realms and making them manifest somehow, especially with Pluto involved. There can be a tendency to really get lost in fantasy here over something or someone, but the combination of imagination and concentration can be really creatively productive, as Pluto lends an ability to really stick with something to a point of fixation, while Neptune lends the gift of imagination and creative visualization. There can be some unique “psychic experiences” or dream experiences available today. The evening see’s a lunar link to Mercury in Aquarius and Chiron in Aries, which suggests that over this weekend we can communicate a little more freely, perhaps some outside of the box notions, or things we felt were too weird to say. This also spotlights community endeavors, and the wider social network in some way, and we can be giving and receiving support from likeminded weirdos, friendships, and the community at large. Saturday the 9th see’s the Moon in optimistic Sagittarius sextile Mercury in Aquarius, trine Chiron, and sextile Jupiter and Saturn in the early part of the day. Something or someone can bolster our optimism and courage somehow, and with the Moon linking to Juno the relationship asteroid, it can be that certain others are inspiring to us in some way, and adding to our optimism and faith in the future. Sunday the 10th, see’s a mixed bag of aspects, and begins with an elusive lunar square to Neptune. It’s possible that certain things or people seem sort of out of reach for now, as there is a certain longing and dreaminess to these aspects. Later the Moon goes on to conjoin Venus in Capricorn, and trine Mars, and something regarding the passions, or relations to others can begin to feel more concrete. This closes out Sunday on a pretty sweet note, and can see next week get off to a rather interesting and passionately motivated start.
