Saturn in Capricorn Through The First House (By Transit)

"saturn in capricorn"
So I’m thinking of starting a little series on Saturn through the Houses by transit because Saturn enters Capricorn next month!

The question of the day: WHAT WILL BE?

Well, much depends on your chart of course, whether the sign of Capricorn is unsupported or supported by your planets!!!!

I think this matters MORE than the fact that Saturn is “at home” in Capricorn.

Let’s say Saturn will be transiting your FIRST HOUSE?

In the words of the first astrologer I ever went to, when I was in my mid-20s:

Now you’re back in charge! 

I know many of my clients with Saturn First House transits have heard me use this phrase. It’s still true. I still believe it.

We cannot underestimate this movement from the 12th to the 1st! From dark to light. From above horizon to below. Seems contradictory, doesn’t it?

Saturn through the First House is a powerful Aries/Mars transit (because the First House is associated with Aries/Mars) despite the beginning of going underground!! Houses one, two, three, four, five, and six are BELOW the horizon!!

Make sense? Saturn First House begins a new cycle among all the other cycles you are going through, with or without Mr. Saturn. A cycle of POWER. How do you feel about power? YOUR POWER.

"saturn through the first house"

Some things to remember about Saturn through the First House 

-First House is an ANGULAR (cardinal) house so life will MOVE. Things will change. Momentum! Dynamic experiences. You take initiation even if that initiative is sitting still. The other day a friend said to me: I LEARN BY DOING. I told her that “non doing” is also DOING.

-You will be called upon to be an AUTHORITY or EXPERT in your life and to be the authority or expert OF your life.

-Remember the First opposes the Seventh House. This transit will cause you to evaluate/re-evaluate your Seventh House i.e. OTHER PEOPLE i.e. who is in your life. Remember that the First House squares your Tenth/Fourth axis — career and home EXPECT SHIFTS OR ADJUSTMENTS IN THESE AREAS.

-Saturn is the Boss. BE THE BOSS. Take charge. Take control. Be firm. Have a plan. Commit. GROW UP GROW UP GROW UP GROW UP GROW UP.

Easier said than done? YES. But it wouldn’t be Saturn if it were “easy.” Often enough I talk to clients who say: I am Saturn so will Saturn transits really bother me? I am Pluto (well aspected Moon Pluto conjunction First House) and PLUTO OPPOSE MY SUN BOTHERED ME. Transits don’t happen and NOTHING happens.

Growing up doesn’t mean you need to be like anyone else. Growing up doesn’t mean you need a “normal” job or “normal life” — whatever that means.

Growing up means living YOUR LIFE with integrity. Grow up. Be you. Don’t expect or require anyone to clean up after you. Yes I know many charts/souls in this incarnation have a built-in clean-up crew (you know who you are) but Saturn finds this repulsive when it’s moving through the First House of Be The Boss Of Your Life And Stop Outsourcing Your Responsibility.

Make sense? Let me know! Stay tuned for Saturn in the Second House!

Here is the new newsletter which has the two Holiday Tarot Specials on offer this week! And here is the Pre-Order link for my book! 

2018: What Will Be? Have You Checked Your Chart + This Week’s Tarot Holiday Special!

The Little Book of Saturn

The earth feels slow and quiet to me these days. Came on all of a sudden.

Mercury goes retrograde early December at the end of Sagittarius.
Neptune goes Direct on Wednesday.
Sagittarius Season, which starts tonight, begins on my IC, the bottom of my chart.

Where I live it’s the dark time of year, even in sunny Florida.

How are you feeling?

"moon conjunct pluto"

I don’t want to use THOSE words and yet I want to use those words. Feeling a bit (here it comes) UNMOTIVATED or directionless or adrift???? although I’ve been busy with clients and enjoying it. DEEP TALK.

Still, I’m looking forward to a couple days off for Thanksgiving. I promise to draw cards only for myself!

ON MY MIND: 

2018. What will be?
What will it bring you?
What was 2017 about vs 2016?

What do you know about 2018 from your upcoming transits or Solar (or other) Returns?

Yesterday I did a Mars Return for someone and it was super fun! I’d never paid them much attention but yes I think they matter! All the charts matter. All the charts are keys and clues. That said, the Mars Return really is “just the transits” of the moment (transits matter!) but with a new Ascendent (and other angles and the Houses). That Ascendent matters!

"venus in scorpio"

Gonna ask it again!! What are you thinking? What are you feeling?

Here is a link to the latest newsletter (sent it out yesterday) and the newsletter has some holiday reflections AND the TWO TAROT HOLIDAY SPECIALS FOR THIS WEEK.

I will be running different specials each week until January 1st, 2018! I have room this Friday actually if you want to book (I am reserving this day for Holiday Tarot folks!)

And here are three ways, yes three, to pre-order my book! Comes out in June! 

The Sagittarius Search For Truth!!!!!!!

Stupid people are getting on my nerves. If that offends you I’m not sorry. But this is an ASTROLOGY blog so let’s get to it!

"sagittarius season"

Let’s talk SAGITTARIUS SEASON. I have a story for you. But first let me remind you that THE SUN ENTERS SAGITTARIUS ON TUESDAY. This Tuesday. The day after tomorrow.

And today I went to church. Sometimes I do that. Go to church. You know it was funny I was talking to an acquaintance today who said:

I didn’t know you were “involved” in church. At first I silently balked at the word INVOLVED and then I said to him: you don’t know me. We don’t know each other. How could you possibly be surprised or not surprised. YES I GO TO CHURCH MOTHERFUCKER. Didn’t say that part.

ANYWAY so I was at church this morning because there is this class that I love besides which I like some of the people there AND I love the goddamn motherfucking Holy Spirit why is that so hard to understand who I sometimes feel the presence of AT CHURCH and my favorite priest (yes I have a favorite priest) was presiding over my favorite class and he was telling a story.

And he’s a Sagittarius. You know where this is going, right?

And I started to take notes while he was talking :) Sometimes I do that!

The Sagittarius search for truth. They cannot NOT tell the truth. And he was telling a story of how he almost got fired, years ago, from this particular parish because of his belief (Sagittarius rules BELIEF) that Christians are NOT better than any other religion.  His inclusive attitude, his inclusive LOVING beliefs got him in trouble to the degree that after one of his sermons he got called to the rector’s office and given a harsh talking to — NEVER to do that again.

Why am I telling you this story? Because you can’t tell a Sag what to do and Sag Season is around the corner.

"mercury retrograde in sagittarius"

So my favorite priest didn’t get fired but he did get reprimanded for his “open-mindedness” and is a priest all these years later, telling us this story. He’s got a lot of stories. Famous for his stories I think.

If only the rector had known who he had hired, he probably wouldn’t have hired him (my priest said). BUT you can’t stop a Sag from telling their truth and this is wisdom for us all during Sagittarius Season. TELL IT!!!!!

Tell your truth but decide WHEN. Tell it after you have the job :)

"jupiter in scorpio"
Our Lady

Saturn is LEAVING Sagittarius. Saturn will be entering Capricorn NEXT MONTH. December.

Saturn in Sagittarius has been like the wild west. Rules? What rules? Order? What order? Structure? What structure? Not so Saturn in Capricorn. The rules, the order, the structure will be BINDING.

Saturn in Capricorn says: Do you have a plan? What’s the plan? Does your life have order? What’s your rule of life?

I love this story of my priest because I love the idea of a radical yet typical Sagittarius, priest, in this conventional path. With Saturn in Sagittarius the path was… the path. A winding road. It was the plan of no plan. Saturn in Sagittarius destroyed our plans with its refusal to plan so do not be surprised if all of a sudden in December, or already, you are thinking about your life in a more serious and responsible way, the Capricorn way, not this freewheeling maybe I’ll get fired way.

This question of plans and planning and GOALS will get more insistent. You will be called upon to create a SOLID LASTING ORGANIZATION TO YOUR LIFE.

FUCK! WHAT NOW? I’m feelin it. Already.

I will end this blog post with his words:

SO PISSED OFF THAT YOU TAKE ACTION: More Advice For The New Moon in Scorpio

"mars square pluto"Recent blog posts
You Are Not Required To Crush Your Enemies (New Moon in Scorpio)
Sometimes You See Death (New Moon in Scorpio) 
No Consent (Mars square Pluto)

I want to talk to you a little more about Mars as the co-ruler of Scorpio and this weekend’s New Moon in Scorpio and what to do with that energy which really cannot be separated from the Mars Pluto square.

Here is your advice:

let your fear (fear of WHATEVER, doesn’t matter) piss you off enough, make you SO ANGRY, that you take action. 

Mars is your ACTION. Pluto is your obsessive focus. Now of course I think it would be helpful to be… careful about what you choose in the coming days because Mars is impulsive and Pluto is ruthless and this combination in the SQUARE aspect could give you some very very VERY bad ideas.

I WANT YOU TO HAVE GOOD IDEAS. Do I sound controlling? I sound controlling. But really I’m just trying to help navigate you through this stormy Mars Pluto Scorpio sea.

Yesterday I had a meeting with a friend. We try to meet once a week to talk business, his business, my business, give feedback, advice, help and I said to him: steer the ship. I was 100% that he had not lost control (and he was worrying like a Virgo Moon with 100000 other placements in Virgo) but he had not lost ANYTHING and I was there to remind him so I am reminding ALL OF YOU:

steer, guide, direct, maneuver, marshal, DRIVE this energy. 

I know you want to share your energy with someone. Scorpio always does. And the Mars Pluto square can make you choose the wrong person, the wrong path, the wrong commitment. Don’t do that. Don’t be rash. Let the New Moon be QUIET for you. Let the New Moon be still. An anchor, a port, a calm sea not a crazy do-or-die sea. Stop and listen. THEN let your fear piss you off so much that you take action. HIGH PRIESTESS THEN MAGICIAN. IN THAT ORDER.

Thank you.

You Are Not Required To Crush Your Enemies But If You Want To Here Comes The New Moon In Scorpio

"new moon in scorpio" Both Mars and Pluto rule Scorpio. I tend to think PLUTO FIRST.

Rise From The Ashes Moon.
Exorcism Moon.
Sex Moon.
Death Moon.
Sex and Death Moon.
Pluto Pluto Pluto Pluto Pluto MOON!

But:

What does Mars want?
Does Mars want?
All the planets (planetary energies) WANT.
What does Mars want?

TO NOT DIE.

If someone tries to kill you, it’s your MARS, a “normal” Mars who tries to stop that from happening.

"mars square pluto"

I’m writing ALL KINDS OF THINGS on my Facebook these last few days while we exist under this ALMOST New Moon in Scorpio + Mars square Pluto (this weekend) sky.

Do you feel it? I feel it. Tune it. You’ll feel it. YOU CAN’T NOT FEEL IT. IT’S EVERYWHERE.

And a gal in the November December group said to me (after I posted a link about the Tarot Death card)

IS THIS FOR ME?

Well, it’s for us all BUT I did draw the Death card twice today so…

Yes.
The answer is yes. 

Scorpio keywords. Mars keywords. Pluto keywords. SO MANY WAYS IN.

For the moment though let’s talk Mars. Mars is the ruler of Scorpio too I think many tend to forget, even me, and I’m trying to rectify that.

But look here. Yesterday’s blog post. About MARS vs. PLUTO 

And the least you need to know:

Mars is ACTION. Mars is YOU in action. Do you DO? Do you push? Mars is not patient. Mars pushes in. And Mars square Pluto WILL NOT WAIT FOR YOU.

SOMETIMES YOU SEE DEATH: Seeing The Dark Cards For The New Moon in Scorpio

"new moon in scorpio"
One of those mornings. Enjoying my coffee. Working. Email Readings, social media, the blog, to-do lists. The usual chatter of this self-employed life as an astrologer, card reader and all the other important stuff for which there are no words. Enjoying it too although tired. Was that a raccoon last night? Armadillo? Outside. Woke me up.

ANYWAY so I draw for my day. Got a DARK CARD.

Drew for the upcoming New Moon. Got a dark card.

Asked WHY the dark cards? Got the same DARK CARD. I know it’s a New Moon in Scorpio. I know it’s Mars square Pluto week I KNOW.

Okay Tarot. You are insistent. And that’s nice and all but it’s freaking me out. SHOW ME WHAT I NEED TO KNOW in a way I can hear you. Be gentle with me. Because you keep coming up machete when what I really need is a butter knife. DO NOT USE A MACHETE ON THE KERRYGOLD!

And thanks in advance.

So I shuffled again and I drew and okay okay okay okay a message coming through in a way that’s easier to hear and thank you Tarot, but sometimes it’s like that. Sometimes you see Death. Sometimes you see Death. Sometimes you see DEATH.

What cards are you seeing?

PS You can pre-order my book from any of these links!

NO CONSENT: Mars Square Pluto This Weekend

I’m going to give you another warning about this week, okay? Okay!

BUT FIRST a big thank you to astrologer Maria DiSimone who had me on her podcast yesterday! The show will be available on Friday and I’ll make sure to share it here and on my social media.

"mars square pluto"
Why am I giving you another warning?

Because I don’t want you to forget that the Mars Pluto square is exact on Sunday.

Exact = we are building towards this aspect now so it’s growing stronger and stronger day by day. We’re in the hot zone now. It’s Wednesday as I type this and the aspect “perfects” Sunday morning. 

Today we are under these sweet gauzy trines including VENUS TRINE NEPTUNE so you may not feel the Mars Pluto undercurrent YET.

Or you may. I’ve had folks on my Facebook say they already blew up at people or vice versa. Mars is in Libra (associated with relationships).

You are going to want to be, well, as graceful as can be even if your pot boileth over on the inside. Stay safe.

As I wrote on my FB Timeline yesterday: I am not predicting any harm to befall you! But I am predicting this sweet Venus Neptune vibe will give way to a beast.

The question then becomes:
how do you handle the beast?
Who is the beast? Is it yours?
Theirs? Both?

What is Mars? 
Energy. Passion. Blood. Aggression. Force. NO CONSENT.

Mars does. Mars takes. Mars doesn’t ask questions.
MARS IS NOT A PEOPLE PLEASER. Mars is not nice.
Mars and Pluto together DO NOT REQUIRE YOUR CONSENT.

What is Pluto?
Power. Just one word for now. POWER.

But think of Pluto, for our purposes here, as your inner power. Inner STRENGTH. Inner “I’m gonna get what I want” as opposed to “I can do THIS many push-ups.” The number of push-ups or the amount of weight you lift, that is MARS. But Pluto is the absolute unwavering desire or commitment to the goal, no matter how short or long term. Pluto is a state of mind. Pluto is a plan.

Pluto sets the fire. Mars runs into it.

When these two SQUARE each other, things can go awry, things can go badly, it can get unwieldy. I’m being NICE as I describe this. You drop the weight on your foot. You don’t know your own strength. You hurt yourself. You hurt someone else.

Pluto is refusal. Refusal so stop, refusal to bend. Refusal to indulge in your stupid self-care ritual. I WILL NOT STOP UNTIL I GET WHAT I WANT AND I WILL PROBABLY KEEP GOING AFTER THAT says Pluto. And this may be commitment to depression. Commitment to survival. Commitment to winning someone over. Commitment to WINNING. Commitment to NO CHANGE EVER. Commitment to persistent negativity. Commitment to LOVE. Commitment to SERVICE.

Mars gets tired. There is only so much physical energy we can muster. We simply run out of fuel. We collapse. The body stops. Every long distance runner has to stop at some point. Every sex session comes to a close (with or without the little death).

AND THEN THERE IS PLUTO. (And I have a well-aspected Moon Pluto conjunction in my First House in my natal so I know a thing or two about not giving up.)

Unlike Mars, Pluto never tires. Pluto = regeneration. A well-aspected Pluto has an endless energy supply for whatever it craves (according to its placement in your birth chart or by transit). It’s a self-sustaining generator (unless its fuel is another person, which is easy to see in a chart).

Advice:

Don’t start any fights this week. Don’t poke the bear, don’t take the bait, etc. Avoid people who make you want to punch them in the head. Try to err on the side of playing dumb (smile through your gritted teeth) and don’t follow any ghosts into any abandoned warehouses and you should be just fine.

The Stars This Week: How Much Scorpio Is Too Much Scorpio?

"new moon in scorpio"
I say this because of tomorrow’s Venus Jupiter conjunction in Scorpio
. It’s a beautiful aspect (Venus Jupiter) but it’s in, well, Scorpio. Don’t get me wrong. Y’all know I love Scorpio. My mother, whose birthday is/was today, was a mega Scorpio. This energy is MY energy (Moon Pluto conjunction First House here).

But how much is too much? Too determined? Too focused? Too brooding? Too obsessed? Too fearless? Too willing to sting yourself to death, dear Scorpio? 

So I’m gonna ask it – of the Scorpios reading this – my favorite question of all: WHAT DO YOU WANT?

This is your time.

Sun is still in Scorpio. Venus Jupiter in Scorpio tomorrow. Moon in Scorpio this week leading to a NEW MOON IN SCORPIO leading to a Mars Pluto square (Mars and Pluto are Scorpio’s ruling planets). This isn’t just your time, this is you, your life, your death, your rebirth, over a week’s time.

The Mars Pluto square gets a warning of course. It’s a notoriously bad aspect. And with Mars in the sign of Libra, it’s your relationship that get heated up — which can be good or not so good. I would avoid dark abandoned places this weekend. Seriously.

But I don’t want to focus on that. Instead I want to think about you, Scorpio Sun or Moon or Rising reading this and how this week is YOUR week. New Moon in your sign? What do you want? Because, realize, you can get it. More than anyone YOU can get it.

And that’s not me blowing smoke up your ass (no clue who taught me that phrase but someone did. My sincere apologies!). Think about it. SET YOUR GODDAMN NEW MOON INTENTIONS AND GO GET THAT THING.

Celebrate The Wound: Chiron In The Birth Chart

"venus conjunct chiron"

Worst case scenario:

This is what Chiron is, in the birthchart. This is what Chiron shows. The worst case scenario. This is what I found myself saying to a client the other day: that where Chiron is – in the birth chart – is that person’s WCS.

She’s got a Venus Chiron conjunction. That’s how this blog post was born.

And forever and ever we get triggered, when something (a transit, a person’s chart) touches our Chiron (and any planets near our Chiron).

I said to her: as soon as you start to love (Venus), your Chiron (your worst case scenario, your wound) wakes up.

I hate it when people say: oh the worst case scenarios don’t happen because of course they do. Her partner’s wife died in an accident. And there was a man I went out with. Same story. Here then gone. My mother went into the hospital and didn’t come out a day later. And often the WCS isn’t death at all. It’s surviving something no one should have to bear.

This is your Chiron. Somewhere in your chart, the unthinkable happened. That house, those aspects. And you get triggered, sometimes more, sometimes less.

I said to her:

You can’t not feel both. Venus AND Chiron. This won’t keep you from happiness or keep you from love, but you must surrender to being the healer and to being healed. Surrender to help and helping. To hurt and hurting.

To find Chiron in your own chart, you have to know how to read your chart. It’s actually pretty simple once you know the ground rules. There are free charts available on line of course and Google is your friend. Dig around. This is also something that we can talk about in a Reading so let me know.

Sometimes I see a Chiron placement in someone’s chart and wonder how it feels to them, that their wound feels as bad as mine does. It reminds me of a huge wave. A huge wave waiting. It waits for just the right moment and then you see, feel nothing else. Only the wound. That’s all you are. You become the wound. Nothing more. And we all have Chiron somewhere.

Is there help or hope for Chiron?

Yes. To dive in.

I don’t think we had this language before but things change. What you do with Chiron is talk about it, write about it, expose it, share it. Make it be known. Open it up. Show it off. Maybe not with everyone but, well, depending on where your Chiron is, you’ll KNOW who you need to share it with. Don’t hide anymore. Let it be seen. And then dance on its grave. Celebrate your wound. Crown it. Glory it. It’s what shouldn’t be seen so see it. SEE IT!

Got questions about your Chiron?
You know how to find me. Moonpluto@gmail or look here for info about my amazing Astrology & Tarot Readings

I feel serious tonight. Gonna try to blog a bit more and then head to bed. Love you xoxo

The Iron Path: Saturn Trine Uranus This Weekend All Weekend YAAAAAAS

"saturn trine uranus"
So this weekend is that Saturn Uranus trine
the third one, the last one of the Saturn in Sagittarius, Uranus in Aries trines and I’ve already written about this but let me say a few more words even if they are the same words!

THESE QUESTIONS:
What do you want to build
What do you want to break
Saturn builds. Uranus breaks. 

YOU NEED TO KNOW YOUR CHART LOOK AT YOUR CHART IF YOU DO NOT KNOW YOUR CHART I CAN HELP YOU OF COURSE BUT YOU NEED TO KNOW YOUR CHART TO KNOW WHERE THIS IS HAPPENING FOR YOU, WHAT IT MEANS YES

To know where this deep deep deep deep deep inspiring INNER core strength is becoming so very indestructible for you RIGHT NOW and it has been all year.

Why the “Iron Path?” I love this phrase.

So I worked with a trainer a couple of times this month and yesterday I wasn’t sure if I was on the right path and then this morning I went in to the gym to see if I should just “join the gym” or if I should continue working with the trainer but I had NO WORDS for my goals. Didn’t have the vocabulary or framework yet didn’t have the structure IN MY MIND clearly (very Saturn).

I knew I wanted needed SOMETHING (pertaining to lifting heavy) and he said to me (the guy helping me) YOU COULD BE A POWER LIFTER.

Even though my jeans and long sleeve shirt and bulky sweater (it’s chilly today). HE SAW ME and I felt YES SOMEONE SAW ME. Someone saw my body my structure my form my SATURN and understood what it was for and it made me so happy.

THIS is Saturn trine Uranus. DISCOVER YOUR FORM. Discovery of your form and for your form.

Finding the path. Setting out on the path. Saturn builds. Uranus breaks.

Sure I could extend the metaphor into breaking down muscle and rebuilding muscle and that can apply to anything.

Exert. Work. Rest. Exert and work again. Rest again.

So think about that. What are you building. What are you breaking. What are you building. What are you breaking. What are you building, breaking, building. Rest.

"Saturn trine uranus"

I LOVE YOU xx

THE INTENSITY: Which Crossroads Are You At?

I want to write about the INTENSITY of Scorpio Season with Venus in Scorpio and Jupiter in Scorpio THE INTENSITY and yesterday although I don’t want to go into detail just the words THE INTENSITY because that’s exactly what it was and it was…

Rapid
Interesting
Passionate
Juicy
Spooky
Painful
Frightening
Rich

One day. It was just ONE. DAY.

And a few hours ago I tried to post about the Nodes but the post disappeared. Just like that. (It’s almost the Mercury retrograde shadow. Almost.)

"venus in scorpio"

WHAT CROSSROADS ARE YOU AT? 

The other day Papa Lega approached me and I don’t want to talk about that either :)

so I’m dropping these little phrases clues keys here and there, just enough to let you know I’m not completely avoiding my 12th House North Node transit. Something’s cooking.

"mercury in sagittarius"
D
o you know the way? What map is in your hands? I SWEAR this Scorpio Season has me like THE INTENSITY. That’s all I can say THE INTENSITY. 

Curious what you’re feeling. Tell me on my Facebook. Let me know.

Astrology Can Be Ugly: Venus In Scorpio & Welcome New Subscribers To The Blog

"uranus in taurus"
Every sign and planetary energy has an ugly side. I’m always surprised when people are surprised that I talk about it. That I don’t always present signs and planets with halos. And that I have preferences and favorites. Of course I do. You do too – unless you are that inauthentic and afraid to have an opinion or thought of your own. Well, that probably describes many many many many.

So lately I’m writing about Scorpio. It’s still Scorpio Season, Jupiter in Scorpio, Venus just entered Scorpio and I’ve been writing about the “usual” sexy Scorpio stuff we are inundated with but of course that’s only part of the story as with EVERY SIGN.

Venus in Scorpio and next week’s Venus Jupiter conjunction may not be a mad hot love or sex affair but instead the lower vibration, the stinging scorpion version of the sign rather than the eagle or phoenix.

More Scorpio in the sky = more good Scorpio and more bad Scorpio. More emotional depth but more emotional blackmail. More support but more betrayal. 

If you are looking for halo astrology, you won’t find it here. What will you find? Help. Stories. Truth. Someone real at the other end of this keyboard talking to you about your life and my life and how to survive the most difficult transits. I get the hard cases. I don’t mean this in any minimizing way. I get the hard cases and believe me I know astrologers and psychics who have clients who just want to chat. My clients talk but they talk because they HAVE TO. I get grief, trauma, loss, destruction, despair, paralysis, torment. I don’t mind. This is what I’m built for. Just like I love lifting weights. My body is strong. What I’m built for.

I’m telling you this in case you are new to my blog (I have new subscribers yay!) and are wondering where the sprinkles are and the whipped cream. Believe me I have my sprinkle and chocolate curl and whipped cream blog posts too but then there’s this: astrology can be ugly. WE can be ugly. But we can also be good. It’s both.

THE KEY TO THE KINGDOM:

You get to decide. That’s the key here. You get to decide who stays in your life.

Am I in your life? Is that friend who let you down in your life? What about your ex? Your family? Do you get to choose?  You get to choose.

YOU. GET. TO. CHOOSE.

A little offer to new subscribers or folks who have never purchased a reading from me. My usual 60 minute rate is $125. The rest of this week, take $25 off so it’s an even $100 and let’s get talking xoxo

I Love You This Much Darkly: Venus Conjunct Jupiter In Scorpio (Nov 13th)

In my last blog post I told you that your love life was about to get interesting and it’s still true. In fact, it’s even more true because now it’s here. Venus entered the sign of sexy charismatic intense Scorpio this morning.

Who is this prediction true for? Everyone generally, but especially for the FIXED signs (Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, Aquarius) and I also want to say for the water signs (Cancer Pisces Scorpio) as well. And by interesting I mean just that: interesting.

AND next week we’ll have that Venus (love) Jupiter (big) conjunction and I wouldn’t be making a big deal of this if it wasn’t a big deal. I think this is a bigger deal than that Venus Mars conjunction we had in Virgo that everyone was talking about.

Will everyone experience a shot of romantic love or reconciliation or find THE ONE?

No.

But that only means you have to widen your idea of Venus. See through her — to other meanings.

Because she isn’t just about love between you and him or you and her but SELF LOVE. Valuing YOU. Valuing your own desire, your own passion, your own survival, your own ENERGY.

How do you feel about Scorpio and do you know why you feel that way?

"venus conjunct jupiter in scorpio"

It’s okay if you don’t know where Scorpio is in your chart but at the same time it’s not okay. I want you to know this stuff. I want you to know your chart because knowing your chart is knowing YOU. The transits still happen even if you don’t know where precisely this will align for you. You’ll feel a shot of love and desire AND POWER somewhere in your life so I hope you will be paying attention. Scorpio rules death and rebirth. Transformation, yes. 

"Venus in scorpio"

My story:

I can’t get away from Scorpio. My mother was a Scorpio. I’ll never be able to get away from Scorpio and nor do I want to. I’ve fallen in love with at least two of them. One of my favorite psychics, a dear friend, is Scorpio. I probably shouldn’t feel “safe” among them (I know better) and yet I need them and I help them. I’ve have plenty of Scorpio clients and I’ve seen the scorpion, eagle, and phoenix in action. I’ve also been on the receiving end of their ruthlessness. I’ve passed and failed the various Scorpio tests over the years. And I’m still here. Mostly :)

So your love life is about to get interesting, my friends, somewhere in your chart. As always, we can talk about this (and other important matters!). I’m not a Scorpio, but that First House Moon Pluto conjunction of mine gives me more than a touch of understanding of the emotionally intense, driven, determined, passionate, and sexual Scorpio.

Are you ready for this transit?
Are you in touch with your desire?
Are you obsessed with your desire?

You will be by the end of this transit :)
xoxo

YOUR LOVE LIFE IS ABOUT TO GET VERY INTERESTING

"venus conjunct jupiter"
A quick one: from my Facebook timeline: 

YOUR LOVE LIFE IS ABOUT TO GET VERY INTERESTING.
I know you are gonna like this, SOME OF YOU are gonna LOVE this astrology so listen up:

VENUS ENTERS SCORPIO next week, Tuesday.

Many astrologers will say that Venus is “not happy” in Scorpio and there are traditional reasons for this but let’s keep it simple:

Scorpio is MARS ruled and concerned with force and control and WAR
(hi Mars!) and that’s not really Venus is it? IS IT?

Isn’t Venus supposed to be… beautiful? Charming? Is war charming?

So you see it’s a contradiction for many and yet some folks absolutely adore Venus in Scorpio because PASSION and because DESIRE and because SEX and because INTENSITY

And remember that Jupiter (abundance) is in Scorpio too so soon we will have a VENUS JUPITER CONJUNCTION IN SCORPIO which is big sex and a lot of sex and abundant insatiable sex

so I suggest you do a BEDROOM SPELL (or whatever location you choose) if you want to amp up your seduction skills and thrills and chills.

Any questions?

"saturn trine uranus"Since 2016 we have been dealing with this AWESOME: Saturn trine Uranus.

The third and final pass is next week, November 11th.  Saturn in Sagittarius, Uranus in Aries. Fire to fire. Why am I telling you about this when it’s almost over? Does it still matter?

Well, I DO think there’s value in taking stock of the past year, but it’s more than that. This LAST PASS isn’t a last gasp but a…

BUILD WHAT?
That’s the question.

And a reminder that Uranus is THE REVOLUTION. In plain English this means it’s okay to take that leap/risk/Fool card/new start ACES ACES ACES!!! BEGIN! Uranus is freedom and enlightenment and liberation and Saturn is STRUCTURE ORDER RULES. This combination is unbeatable wherever it falls in your chart! 

Saturn and Uranus in good harmonious aspect is a sure thing. A risk you can count on. DEPENDABLE reliable freedom.

Wow. Savor that for a moment. What that could look like for you – and then in what HOUSES it’s in for you.

Sagittarius and Aries are the signs.
25 degrees.
Not why build but build what! Because you are building something whether or not you are conscious of that. You are here, alive, and you are building, creating your life — so why not add in some INTENTION?

Your Truth: Mercury Enters Sagittarius This Weekend

"mercury retrograde in sagittarius"Mercury enters Sagittarius on Sunday and this matters extra because Mercury will go retrograde in this sign, at the very end of the sign, AND we will have THREE count ‘em THREE Mercury Saturn conjunctions. THREE.

Serious stuff. Serious mind. Serious Sagittarius house.

YOU HAVE A DECISION TO MAKE. You can’t just speed through. You can’t ignore the details. You shouldn’t. Mercury in Sagittarius, fire sign, may want to speed through but not this time because of Saturn, because of the retrograde. You must slow down. You must look. You must be the best of Sagittarius. What is the best of Sagittarius? They see in you what no one else could. They see the best of you. They see the truth.

Saturn in Sagittarius slows down Sagittarius. Mercury and Saturn together slows down Mercury. And a retrograde is a review. Honey bear, this is no ordinary Mercury retrograde and this is no ordinary Mercury in Sag.

The least you need to know FOR NOW (and I’ll blog more about the details of this transit):

Your Sagittarius house (or houses) need your attention at this time.

I don’t want to call it a problem to be solved. Call it a puzzle. There’s a puzzle piece inside this house of your chart and it links up, connects to, your natal Jupiter, transiting Jupiter, and the houses they are in.

Think of your natal Jupiter as holding the key to this transit for you. And that key opens the lock of your Sagittarius house.

In plain English? JUPITER IS THE KEY TO YOUR PERSONAL MERCURY IN SAGITTARIUS TRANSIT. Explore Jupiter in your birth chart and you’ll see what you need to see, understand what you need to understand, feel what you need to feel, know what you need to know!

Full Moon In Taurus: Shame, Guilt, Self-Loathing, & Fries

"moon conjunct pluto"


One thing you can do with this Full Moon is release negative emotions
. Start NOW.

Moon is in Taurus as I type this.

And what I mean by “release negative emotions” is:

let them come to the surface
let them bubble up, expose themselves, spread themselves all over the floor, feel them, speak the words behind them, think the thoughts, and… I was about to say “let them go” but I’m not convinced that part is necessary or advised. I’m not sure. But I think you should feel the width of them. Feel and understand how much space they take up within you. Notice it. Notice what shape. Are they stripes? Polka dots? Maybe the emotion has a color. And ask how much. How much of you is that shame. Or guilt. Or defilement. Or humiliation. Or self-disgust, self-loathing. YOU ARE WRONG FOR EVEN EXISTING. That feeling. You are wrong for not having money, not having health, not having a partner or children or your own home or a passion or a car or a God. You are wrong for having been hit or raped or for staying in one place, never moving, never going, never never never. You are like that fence over there, barely holding holding it together and that is WRONG. There is something wrong with you.

Those are the “negative emotions” I’m talking about releasing. Release those. And there are more of course. This is just a sample.

My parents died when I was young. Why do I feel ashamed of that and yet I do. As if I had something to do with it. As if I weren’t good enough to keep them. I hate pity but I also hate being forgotten. Being an orphan since before my Saturn Return, there’s a lot I have no clue how to do and yet I help people all around the world. Life is strange that way. I am living who I always was. I was always this.

I’m telling you this story so that you know you are not alone in your grief at existing. That you can come from nothing, you can come from abuse, trauma, you can experience abuse, trauma, and still… feel love. It always shocks me but there it is, popping up like a flower.

My recommendation:

do this work of Full Moon releasing without hope of a cure. Do it for its own sake.

"jupiter in scorpio"
Our Lady

I have a running joke with a gal on my Facebook. I don’t know how it started. She’s in one of my chat rooms and I must have been talking about potatoes and then she started talking about potatoes which turned into potato emoji and french fry emoji and it always makes me smile. French Fry Love is the opposite of guilt and shame and tears.

And another story: I was chatting with an acquaintance who asked me what my passion was, if my work was my passion, and I wasn’t sure, if it was passion or calling and finally I realized it:

FRENCH FRIES ARE MY PASSION. Part joke, part not.  I have my Mars in Cancer square Jupiter. If there’s a snack waiting, I’ll be right over. He didn’t really get it though. He said: you can do better than that.

Really? Who are you to put down my passion? And that’s how shame begins. We get it from day one (or two, or three) from the family and on and on it continues until you meet some person as a near 50-year old who tells you french fries aren’t good enough.

But I’m here to tell you FRENCH FRIES ARE GOOD ENOUGH.
That is all.

"Venus square Chiron"
I wish you a healthy and productive Full Moon xoxo

The Stars This Weekend: Venus Saturn Uranus + Full Moon In Taurus ADVICE

"uranus in taurus"
I realized the other day that I’ve been blogging since 2011
. Talking to clients since 2011. That’s a long time. Almost ten years. Probably very little that I haven’t heard. Questions of love, sex, money, the spirit, grief, love, sex, money, the spirit, grief. Health. Everybody loves and everybody grieves. I don’t mean this to sound like the words on a headstone. I’m not quitting, just reflecting. It’s been a while. I have experience in what I do. And yes there are some folks I’ve been working with since then!!

Saturn is square Chiron today.

Two worldly wise teachers. Two teachers in pain and of pain. It’s the square aspect that makes the lessons edgy or hard to swallow. Swords lessons. But this is THREE OF THREE, my dears! We’ve been down this road before, wherever this happens in your chart. Final pass. Last chapter. This difficulty will soon become a memory as a new teaching takes its place. Saturn from the 4th has been squaring my 7th. And YOU?

Tomorrow is better. Venus is sextile Saturn. A sextile is better. A sextile helps. The lessons are less harsh. The lessons are hopeful. You’re committed and you don’t feel so damn ugly.

BUT WAIT. There’s more. It’s a busy weekend. If you feel things are slow now, just you wait.

Sun trine Neptune, Full Moon in Taurus, Venus opposing Uranus too. It’s a lot. What does it all mean? How do we make sense of the hopeless harsh Saturn Chiron square followed by Venus (love and money) and Saturn (work and structure) followed by Venus and Uranus (completely unpredictable) AND under a well-aspected Full Moon in Taurus. What? Huh? Venus, Saturn, Uranus WORKING TOGETHER. Sort of. Uranus doesn’t really “work together” with anyone.

WHAT DOES THIS SAY ABOUT YOUR LOVE LIFE.
WHAT DOES THIS SAY ABOUT YOUR MONEY LIFE.
SECRETS GET REVEALED.
TRUTH COMES TO LIGHT
HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

"mercury in sagittarius"
from the 4CP deck created by the Sequential Artists Workshop

What I think and feel about all this SKY:

Something or someone out of the blue shows up.
That’s the URANUS influence. 

Could be a long lost love. A windfall.
New love. Luck alert! FOR ALL SIGNS.
Uranus is SUDDEN. 

Secrets exposed (and this could be you admitting something to yourself) FOR ALL SIGNS.
That’s the Full Moon, Taurus/Scorpio influence here.
Long kept secrets REVEALED.

Commitment to a goal (old or new) FOR ALL SIGNS.
That’s the Saturn part.

And maybe ALL THREE for you!

And yet this Venus Saturn Uranus thing…
There’s more I want to say BUT it may be particular for YOUR chart.

Do you have planets around 24/25/25 degrees? That’s the hot spot here.

And then Mercury enters Sagittarius on Sunday AND Mercury will go retrograde in Sagittarius so we have a new story forming.

My advice for you. I’ll draw ONE card FOR ALL SIGNS :)

It’s the King of Wands y’all. 
Advice: SIT STILL. Wait.
Wait.
Wait.

You don’t need to prove to ANYONE what you know or how you know or how skilled you are, that you are THE KING. You are the King. That’s it. Sit. Wait. Let them come to you.

And oh good lord my picture showed up sideways and I’m on a new computer and not sure how to rotate it on this DAMN THING nor how to remove it (unless I just cut and paste the text into a new post) so imagine that I’m laying next to you whispering sweet Tarot nothings or somethings in your ear with my deck and a magical cup of coffee that doesn’t spill on its side :) Hey, Witches can do this shit :)

I LOVE YOU. Talk to you soon xo

Blood & Guts Moon (Instructions For Your Taurus Full Moon Ritual)

"full moon in taurus"
I’m going to tell you what your Full Moon ritual should be.

It needs to be life and death. It needs to be savage. EVERYTHING YOU FEAR YOU CANNOT WILL NOT HAVE.

Are you in touch with that feeling? That feeling in particular? That particular rage? That particular cry? Are you? OR are you wasting time, drugged, complacent, weak. I implore you NOT to be weak (says Pluto).

I was telling the gals in the class that I am going to work with “the ancestors” and how I usually don’t, which is true, but I will THIS WEEK ALL WEEK, long before the moon enters Taurus, because they, the ancestors, owe me. That’s how it started.

I love you. I hate you. You owe me. NOW FIX IT.

See, it’s not just a FULL MOON IN TAURUS, it’s a Sun Moon opposition. Sun in Scorpio ruled by Mars and Pluto (and if you don’t know what that means LOOK IT UP) so I recommend you take into your ritual MARS energy and PLUTO energy and put your blood and sweat and guts into the ritual and PLANT THE DAMN SEED (that’s the Taurus part) and crush what stands in your way.

STOP WASTING TIME.
That’s all for now, star lovers…

Predicting Love: Can It Be Done?

Please subscribe to the NEWSLETTER here. It’s free. I try to put one out once a week and try not to duplicate content too much!

"moon conjunct pluto"

So I’m fond of saying that rarely do readers (of various kinds, over the years) predict love accurately for ME and yet I’ve often said that love, or the lack of it, is one of the easiest things to SEE in the cards.

And when using Astrology to see, it’s more than 5th House transits or 7th House transits or transits to their rulers although I will look there first! I have seen charts perfectly poised for love and NOTHING, my chart included! And then I remember a client for whom I felt a FAR AWAY INKLING (like within two years time) and instead she met someone two weeks later. 

Recently a good friend (who is also a good psychic) made a prediction for me (about someone in particular) that was so lovely (although with caveats) that I felt so damn confused when it didn’t play out right away (i.e. last week) how she said it would. She’s been totally ON when it came to BAD LOVE and BAD relationships. And I know I’ve been often right and sometimes wrong for folks as well.

I remember someone seeing my cards, seeing a man in my cards and hell yes a man showed up. Not a keeper but a MAN yes. And I have another friend who can always tell when someone is “around me” to the point of there will be a date or a meeting soon soon soon.

"venus opposition jupiter"
Psychics exist. Damn good psychics exist, no matter the tools they use. So why is love so elusive to nail? I know I know we are not God but I do believe accurate prediction exists. I have done it and I have seen it done.

So what about love? WHAT ABOUT LOVE? Why is it sometimes so wobbly and sometimes so clear even for the best psychics and readers among us?

One thing to keep in mind is our “Free Will” (if it even exists but we like to pretend it does). It’s like a tennis match. You don’t play against yourself. There’s another person there and their neurosis and your neurosis and really it’s neurosis against neurosis much of the time. Fantasy against fantasy.

And my situation may turn out just as my friend predicted just not on the timeline I would prefer and truth is this would match the original cards I originally drew for the situation. No one is wrong yet. Am I impatient? A bit :)

I don’t have a perfect answer to my question. It’s not enough for me to say: things change and thus the cards change. It’s not enough for me to say: no psychic is 100%. Why is love particularly hard for others to see in my energy. I have had the best I’ve ever worked with be dead-one with various other topics but THIS?

Maybe because they want me to be happy and they feel my hope but truth is if the vibes were bad, my peeps would absolutely say so.

The real answer may be more esoteric than we realize and/or the real answer may be that some people will NOT have a committed love relationship in this lifetime (for whatever reason) and who wants to deliver THAT news?

Challenges are SO easy to see in the chart, as are talents. To me they are bright as the sun. And sometimes the future too is impossible NOT to see. And yet.

Some souls may be renewing or rewriting contracts. That they were slated NOT to have love but made an amendment to their contract so the cards reflect the old contract and the new one simultaneously. That’s one option. 

One thing is for certain though: your clarity around these matters matters. The fewer mixed signals you give the universe the better, no matter your chart.

My thoughts here are based on years of EXPERIENCE, reading for people and getting readings too! I really should start keeping track. Love prediction + accuracy versus delay or full-on wrong. One other thing is for certain: it’s easy or easier to see a NO and harder to see a YES or which way precisely that YES will go. That’s when things get slippery and that “free will” comes in.

Wishing you good cards xo

Making Peace With Chiron: God’s Highway

"chiron return"
When I first learned astrology, all those years ago, in that class in New York City, near Penn Station, from a real Occultist, a real Magician, I learned about Chiron. He included Chiron in the chart. Not everyone does.

Some folks do not include Chiron or do not consider him as important as the other outer planets or slow movers.

I wish I didn’t.

I wish we didn’t have a Chiron or need a Chiron.

I wish all of us were without wounds. But this is not “Moshiach time” as a lady I once worked for would probably say. In plain English, this isn’t heaven on earth. Yet.

We have our wounds and they need a representative(s). Chiron is one of these. He makes sure we are continually reminded of our vulnerability. Fragility. Humanity. It’s soooo painful, says Chiron. Can you soften when you are reminded of this instead of hardening your heart? I’ll try too.

Over the years I’ve met more than one astrologer who felt Chiron could NOT be healed, that this wound always opens and re-opens throughout our lives, depending on the transit and our life experiences. This has been my perspective too, and I always felt those “love and light” astrologers were full of shit.  You know the ones I mean? The ones who talk about how great Saturn and Pluto are as if their transits were theme park rides. Life is hard.

No one wants to be writhing in pain all the time and we’re not, for the most part, hopefully, ideally, AND YET those of us who are the explorers and seeker and deep divers, well, we live on a sharp edge. We get hurt. We trust. Many of us are empaths, artists, believers in the invisible.

Question: how to make peace with Chiron. That something will always hurt, has the potential to always hurt, and can get triggered pretty much any time. What do we do? Can we make peace? What do we do? So let’s say Chiron can’t be healed. And let’s say we are so wounded, so so so so wounded. And we try to work and love and be and live whatever life we have and… Chiron. Always Chiron.

“They say” we are supposed to take knowledge from our personal pain. That it’s a gift we can eventually give. Teach. That we can help others. I do believe this is true. Take our writhing and our sorrow and straighten up and strengthen and be a lighthouse for others, be a help, be a heart, life preserver.

Today I reached out to a friend. I was so bummed about something and she was there for me and she showed me good things when all I had to say was sorrowful things. She was a good mirror. She was good.

It was Chiron that was talking, my essential wound. My rejection. Not my filth. That’s Pluto. Not my punishment. That’s Saturn. But my Chiron. My essential wrongness. In all of us there is a place deep inside that just feels incapable of redemption, fixing, perfection, help. That’s Chiron’s curse and the irony is we really can hold others up, comfort others, even when we feel beyond that same help.

Maybe that’s the only way to make peace with Chiron. To give him voice. Speak about the wound. Speak loudly about the wound. Sing it. I’m not sure I ever do. Yes another way is to counsel others and be a good friend but I think there has to be this other way because for many of us giving counsel is not our path. But in this age of social media we can all speak out and take pain out of the dark and make it plain and SEEN. And heard.

Chiron says: I’m not good enough. I’m not X enough. The X is whatever House he’s in for you. That House becomes a black sun. X it out. Cross it out. Ignore it. Until BAM you are forced to confront your brokenness once again.

Advice: find a friend.
Advice: if you don’t have a friend find good counsel who will comfort you. Advice: if you don’t have a friend or counsel find GOD (Goddess, a candle, a Saint).

FIND IT. Because even if writhing in pain occasionally is inevitable, so is solace.

Have you made peace with Chiron?

"uranus in taurus"

I want to talk a little more about this week’s Full Moon in Taurus.

The newsletter had some general Full Moon talk, but let’s look at the day’s aspects:

This Friday or Saturday depending on your time zone.
Almost 12 degrees Taurus. 
Leading up to the Full Moon we have (of the major aspects):

Moon opposing Jupiter (sensitive, emotional)
Sun trine Neptune (magical spiritual)
Moon sextile Neptune (psychic)
VENUS OPPOSING URANUS (shocking or surprising and possibly quite good)
FULL MOON IN TAURUS ta-da!

And then on Saturday the Moon will make good aspects to both Pluto (rebirth) and Chiron (the wounded healer).

Of course what this means for you PERSONALLY can only be determined by your personal birth chart but in terms of the collective energies? This is pretty damn SWEET!

What is the breakthrough. I know you want to know the breakthrough. Spiritually speaking what do we need to know about this, what do we need to think about. 

This Full Moon is not about acceptance.
This Full Moon is not about surrender.
This Full Moon is a moon of pleasure, delight, and exuberance.
THIS FULL MOON IS IN THE MOMENT.
This Full Moon knows how to be here now with grapes and pomegranates and lilac wine and luxurious gowns and it’s all very Nine of Pentacles to me.

It’s a sensual moon so I’m bringing you a message of sensuality and slowness. The Venus Uranus opposition may provide excitement but otherwise what we have here is uniquely stable and the Moon heading towards Full illuminates something wonderful in your Scorpio House (where Jupiter is traveling and Jupiter is lucky) so you do want to keep an eye on that. WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE EARLY DEGREES OF YOUR SCORPIO HOUSE??? The Full Moon in Taurus wants to stabilize it, steady it, touch its shoulder, warm it up. (Also interesting to note the number of esoteric aspects in the mix here on Full Moon day.)

It’s a gentle moon, a sweet moon, a psychic moon even though right in the middle of it we have this Venus Uranus glittering sea. Uranus is unpredictable. Will some of you find new love? New money? Yes.

And then the next day Mercury enters Sagittarius and the stories that want to be told begin to set themselves free.

Let me know how you are, in the comments, and I’ll see you again soon xo

Where The Wild Things Are (And Aren’t): Uranus In Taurus! May 2018

And then THIS happened. My book is coming out June 2018. Didn’t even realize it was in the catalog already but it is. Look here, my friends. 

"uranus in taurus"

May 2018.

This is when Uranus will finally leave Aries and enter TAURUS! Uranus spends about seven years in a sign so this is a big deal! And for you it may signal not only a sign change but a HOUSE change as well (depending on your birth chart and the house system you use).

I have an early degree Rising Sign AND most of my house cusps are pretty early in degree (I’m back to using Placidus these days) so for me it is a house change, and what I want to tell you (about you) is this:

Uranus is not the planet of stability. Uranus is not the planet of staid sober disciplined action. Uranus is freedom. Uranus is creative. Chaos. Uranus is unpredictable. Uranus is nuts. Uranus is wild. URANUS REFUSES THE RULES, REFUSES RESTRICTION. URANUS REFUSES!

So whatever House Uranus is leaving in your chart, this house will soon lose this wild Uranian influence.

See the point I’m making? We don’t just have a new sign and possibly a new House for transiting Uranus for you — you also will have NEW or regained stability in the House that Uranus is LEAVING.

This is huge, especially if Uranus is leaving a money house or a health house, those areas of life that can really bring us to our knees. You will see things be less CRAZY.

I’m telling you this to reassure you. That there’s a part of your life that is about to get more stable than it’s been IN YEARS.

Yes, MoonPluto, I hear you say, but that also means that Taurus House, where Uranus is headed, is about to be rocked, right? 

Maybe. Depends. Depends on YOUR CHART (yes I am all caught up from the Hurricane so can schedule you relatively soon). We can talk about this. We can talk about how Taurus is aspected in your chart because that matters. If your chart is full of fixed planets (Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius, Leo) your experience of Uranus in Taurus will be very different than someone with an emphasis on the Cardinal signs (Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, Libra).

LOOKING AT YOU, PLUTO IN SCORPIO GENERATION! PLUTO IN LEO GENERATION!

Got questions? Let’s talk. But otherwise know this, as I wrote above: one area of life, next year, is gonna start to even out, smooth out, and stop giving you so much trouble, and another area of life is going to demand your flexibility, creativity, and general ability to say OKAY LIFE, I SURRENDER!

Saturn Square Chiron + The Full Moon In Taurus (Nov 2/3/4)

So this is happening. I’m in the catalog. Click on this link to see!

 

"saturn square chiron"

Thoughts on the Saturn Chiron square NEXT WEEK:

Hard aspects as GRIDLOCK is on my mind as I look at next week’s sky, especially the Saturn Chiron square, gridlock in that part of your chart, the Sagittarius and Pisces houses.

CANNOT MOVE. Straightjacket energy YOU ARE STUCK (although I do predict a breakthrough under the Taurus Full Moon the following day).

Saturn is THE TEACHER, always with a lesson, always pushing us, making us grow BUT CHIRON DOES THIS TOO!

How do we learn when it’s a square. How do we not just… go to bed and stay in bed and hide? Squares are frustrating. Squares are painful. And a square between two powerhouse teachers like Saturn and Chiron…

how do we feel anything but defeated?

THIS IS THE JOB ASPECT. Job as in the Book of Job.

What is the SOLUTION to such a square??

1.

define the lesson. What is happening in your Sagittarius House. What is happening in your Pisces House? They are LINKED. The issues you are going through are LINKED BY THIS SQUARE, by this tension and frustration. THEY ARE LINKED even though it doesn’t feel like it!!!

2.

take action. Even if the action is sitting still and waiting for the right moment to reveal itself. Define the lesson. Define the teaching. Wait. Listen. Act.

3.

Don’t give up. Saturn Chiron can crush you. Don’t be crushed. Saturn Chiron can beat you. Don’t be beat. I say this with confidence because I KNOW. I know bad transits end. I know Jupiter enters a happy place in your chart and you get kissed once more.

Now of course if you are mentally SICK (no bootstraps at all), if you are physically SICK, there is a limit to how much my transit talk can help you, if you are homeless, broke, abused, THERE IS A LIMIT, but if you are just an ordinary Joe or Jane in the middle of your perfect lonely life then this applies to you. And honestly it applies to those of us suffering deeply as well (just harder to access OUR PERSONAL POWER).

That Saturn Chiron has a gift for you even when it seems like all you have has burned to the ground.

Wait for it. Wait for the Full Moon news about your life in response to the Saturn Chiron square.

I get clients who ask me why life is so hard. Why don’t they have what they want (whatever it is). But it’s the WRONG QUESTION. Not a stupid question but the wrong question.

Don’t ask WHY. Instead, GET TO WORK (says Saturn).
And yes this means you must discover YOUR TRUE WORK (says Saturn).

I wish you much HEALING, my friends
