Mercury Retrograde in the Middle of a Bunch of Eclipses...in Virgo

September 1, 2016
Mercury went retrograde at the last degree (29) of Virgo on Tuesday, August 30th.  And this morning, there was a New Moon eclipse at 9 degrees Virgo. 

All this Virgo energy supports re-organizing the details of our lives.  We need to be diligent with our diet, exercise, housekeeping and budgeting routines in order to have the time and money we need to live the lives we want to live, and to live "our truth".


The original meaning of Virgo is "A woman owned by no man."  In modern day translation, the energy of Virgo is "Nobody's Bitch".  This is because she plants her own seeds, takes care of her own harvest, plans for the winter, and counts ahead.



She does these things so that she does not have to rely on anyone else to enjoy the life she really wants to live.


The energy between now and September 22nd is best for continuing to hash out and re-evaluate the details of projects already set in motion, and make the necessary changes for success.  Wait until after the 22nd to add anything new to your plate.  You have enough going on right now.

Any projects sitting on the shelf collecting dust?  Need to change your lifestyle habits?  Too many trips to Dunkin' Donuts? Is your savings account a joke?  Is there any actual food in your diet? Need to re-arrange your filing cabinets?  Mercury retrograde in Virgo is the perfect time to do it!



Have you been in denial about lifestyle habits of yours that no longer serve you? Where in your life is a lack of practicality holding you back?  The period between now and the Full Moon eclipse on September 16th should uncover exactly where and how we can be more practical, and where changes need to be made will be revealed.



Don't let your bad habits control you, and make you their "bitch".  Plant your own seeds and enjoy your own harvest.




 

Mars Trines a Stellium of Planets in Cancer: Sun, Mercury, Venus...

July 7, 2016
Three planets (Sun, Mercury, Venus) in "I just want to stay in bed and eat bonbons" Cancer. Plus, the Moon is void of course in "I just wanna have fun" Leo. Procrastination much? Don't worry. The moon will go into Virgo soon enough tonight, and you will feel inclined to get stuff done again.



In general, we are getting a small break from the challenging energy which will still be forcing us to transform until the end of September.  But for now, we have a little lazy comfort.  Relax for n...

Mars Goes Direct, but We are Still Under the Influence of Scorpio...

June 29, 2016
This astrologer has admittedly been hiding under a rock since about March.  No doubt, you have felt it, too! 


2016 has turned out to be a year full of re-arranging and transforming.  We are being challenged by the Universe to become the strongest, greatest, and best versions of ourselves, and it hasn't been easy.



While It's not completely over yet, today, we get a little break as Mars finally goes direct this evening at 23 degrees Scorpio.  The last time Mars was at this degree was February 18...

Lunar Eclipse 3-23-2016 Balancing the individual soul with the Universal Soul...

March 22, 2016

The Lunar eclipse on Wednesday March 23rd takes place in the signs Aries and Libra:  Finding the balance between being independent and respecting ourselves as individuals, while still living with, loving, and respecting the needs of others...

...As well as respecting the fact that we need others.





Eclipse energy, even when positive, can feel jarring and disorienting. 

Uranus will be rising on the East Coast during the peak of the eclipse, meaning many of us will be having some "Eureka"-style, in...

Total Solar Eclipse Super Moon in Pisces, Tuesday March 8th

March 4, 2016
We get our first Supermoon and Eclipse of 2016 on Tuesday, March 8th in dreamy Pisces.  Not only is this a Supermoon, meaning the Moon will be at its closest approach to Earth, but it is also a New Moon Total Solar Eclipse, meaning the Earth will completely cover and shadow the light of the Sun. 

What does that all mean for us here on Earth?



Eclipses are periods of "uncovering", when the Universe feels we are ready to accept some information we previously didn't have access to, in order to tak...

Full on Mercury Retrograde: "Great idea, but don't forget to bring snacks!"

January 10, 2016
Sunday, January 10, 2016:  Mercury Retrograde Aquarius/Capricorn

Mercury went retrograde on Tuesday, January 5th, starting off in enlightened Aquarius.  So, the retrograde seemed like it might not be such a challenging one, initially.  We started off with these really ingenious, progressive, amazing, forward thinking ideas! Revolution, freedom, and enlightenment! You got into that new rocket ship you invented and everything, ready to go!



...But, then Mercury slid back into realistic, earthy Cap...

Full Moon in Cancer, Uranus turns Direct! "Don't Drop the Radio Into the Bathtub!"

December 23, 2015
Full Moon in Cancer on December 25th.



The Full Moon on December 25th is all about CHANGE.  And while this change is inevitably for the best, just like two sticks rubbing together to create a fire, the friction necessary to create the fire can also be challenging and irritating. 


There is a sense of insecurity, that after all that hard work, once you’ve finally gotten the fire burning, a slight wind could blow the whole thing out, or burst your bubble!



Why does this full moon feel so u...

Sagittarius Sun, Full Moon in Gemini: "No, I didn't assume I knew what you meant..."

November 25, 2015
The moon is officially full in Gemini, as of 5:44 pm ET today (11/25/15).  This means the Sun and the Moon are exactly opposite one another.  The ego and unconscious look for balance. Our communication skills and living our truth comes into focus.


Sagittarius energy likes to believe, "Well, you know what I meant!!", as they make sweeping generalizations about things, sometimes adding a bit of sarcasm to it.  Heaven forbid you ever spoke back to a Sagittarius that way.  They would accuse you o...

Mercury in Scorpio: Afraid to Communicate

November 16, 2015

Mercury in Scorpio...it's not always easy to say what you really want to. We are painfully aware of how the things we say with good intentions can be misinterpreted or turned against us. Sometimes, when we put ourselves out there to show we care, we might not always be appreciated. Sometimes, we get the courage to say something, only to be left feeling ignored.


But, are our intentions with what we say pure, or are we trying to elicit and manipulate a response with what we are saying...

It's Scorpio Season.

After the New Moon in Scorpio on Tuesday....

 

November 12, 2015:  Scorpio energy isn't always the easiest to deal with. It's either black or white when dealing with this intense, passionate, sultry sign.

 

Scorpio can be a little paranoid, but it also can help us separate the reality of what we can control from that which we have no control over.  When we focus too hard on what we have no control over, we give up our personal power.   We take our power back when we recognize what we c...
