If my yesterday was any indication of what this upcoming Mercury in Retrograde will be, we are in for quite the ride. The God of communication will be turning on his heals today at 9:04 PM (EDT) just past 180˚ from Uranus, the God of the unexpected and innovation. So, while every Mercury Retrograde (Rx) […]
Like many around the world, I find myself sheltering-in-place. And in these unprecedented times, I have spent a lot of time turning inward to see where and how I can be of most help. To be honest, when life first began on the trajectory, we now find ourselves, I became a little frantic in my desire to be of help to family, friends, neighbors, clients, and students. In those early days, that feel like 3-months, not 3-weeks ago, I created a two-page list of all the classes I was going to develop and launch in a week.
Once again, Mercury, the messenger, is moving backward through the sky. Although the term Mercury Retrograde is becoming ever more common, it is often misunderstood. So, before I take you too far down the rabbit hole, here is a little context as to what is happening. Firstly, when a planet is retrograde, yes, all planets go retrograde; it is not, in fact, moving backward; it merely appears to be from our perspective on Earth. I often explain it to clients by likening it to the sensation of driving by an 18-wheeler and experiencing the feeling of drifting backward.
Good goddess is this year’s New Moon in Cancer a whopper of a lunar launching-pad.
New Moons are in the same astrological sign as the Sun. So, since we are in the time of Cancer, the New Moon on the 12th of July at 10:48 PM EDT is also in Cancer.
New Moons are times of new beginnings. This month’s New Moon is at 27˚ Pisces on March 17th at 9:11 AM EDT. Pisces, the sign of the two fishes is majestically interwoven into the dream time and all things that are non-tangible. Pisces governs all things malleable, other dimensional. It rules our feet and is […]
About a month ago a reporter posted that they were looking for an astrologer to write something up about the good side of each Sun sign (that is “your sign” that you would read in the newspaper) and what they have to offer/ teach the rest of us. In general, I find the oversimplification of […]
At 11:50 PM EST Dec. 19th Saturn will be in Capricorn for the first time since February 1991. Saturn is one of the slower moving planets through the zodiac so he won’t fully be out of Capricorn until the end of 2020. So, what the heck does all this mean? Well, Saturn (or Cronos for […]
For years and years when it comes to working with and writing on the phases of the Moon, I have leaned heavily to the New Moon. The New Moon is about the New. What we want to create, give birth to, invoke in some form or fashion. And while all of that is fabulous and […]
Yay Mercury is now direct (i.e. no longer retrograde) everything is going to get easier; right? Well kinda sorta maybe… First off, we’re still in the shadow. That is Mercury will be making-up ground and not fully giving voice to the new until the 19th, so don’t be surprised if you’re still needing to re-due […]
Sun sign astrology is the stereotypes of each sign. One it is just a generalization so it’s sure to fall flat, and two, the Sun is not the only celestial object used by astrologers, nor were all celestial objects in the same sign as the sum when any one of us was born.
