The Darkness: Christmas Eve, Capricorn Season, & Mercury Direct *ADVICE*

"saturn in capricorn"
I got the most extraordinary Christmas card this morning

a client thanking me for my help in 2017.

She suffered a loss. I spoke to her before the loss. I spoke to her after the loss. And now it’s Christmas and she sent me this email which reminded me, once again, why I do this work. It’s a struggle though. I don’t mean the work itself – I love the work and am suited for it. I mean EARTH SCHOOL. Even now I am back on YouTube and I am posting videos to expand my reach but it all feels… it all feels like a tight squeeze, a tight fit, this survival. I am watching the Spanish moss twist in the slight wind.

"moon conjunct pluto"
Mercury is newly direct in Sagittarius so if any areas of your life had slowed down in the last few weeks, they will pick up again. It’s Capricorn Season now INCLUDING SATURN and this will help if you can keep yourself from falling into anxiety-mind which Capricorn is awfully good at. Fear and doubt. PLAN. YOU NEED A PLAN. Saturn is in the sign it’s “supposed” to be in so we are “supposed” to be rejoicing at this.

Is your chart hospitable to Capricorn? THIS MATTERS. Yes Saturn in Sagittarius was difficult. Saturn is the rules and Sag doesn’t want any. And now we have rules within rules within rules within rules. It will feel suffocating to some, indeed. Don’t let yourself be swallowed by fear. What is Capricorn good at? ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTION? I’ll tell you one thing. Work. 

"jupiter trine neptune"

I drew a card for you. Advice. I tried to ask this question last night and make a video for my Patrons but wasn’t able to finish it. Different deck. Same question. SAME CARD. THE HERMIT.

Take a moment alone. Whether you are with family or not. Whether you are alone or not. Take a moment to STOP. In your solitude, touch your life. Connect with your experience right now – no matter how painful, no matter how joyful. Sanity is found in accepting reality (and accepting reality is not the same as judging it good (to paraphrase Marsha Linehan)).

Sanity.
Reality.
This is the best of Saturn. Grounded. Earth. Work.

(Oh Mercury just gone direct I cannot seem to rotate this image and just want to get this post up – I’m on a different machine than my old Mac! but it’s Crowley’s Hermit.)

"thoth hermit card tarot"

I AM RUNNING MY BOGO at this time so please indulge. $125 = two hours of time with me which we can do in one shot or you can save the time.
You may also use them as gifts. Buy one get one free on my 60 minute Readings.

I’ll be honest with you. When the time is right I will phase these out but for right now they exist. After my book comes out, in June, things may change. We shall see what 2018 brings.

Much love,
A.

Mars Enters Scorpio: It’s A Beautiful Day To Crush Your Enemies

"mars in scorpio"
I started telling this story without any details

but I think I need to share some of the details.
Some of the details. Details about DOMS (google it)

and about how the body must adjust when exposed to something new and intense.

That’s what happened to me.
"girls who powerlift"
I was lifting heavy weight (heavier than I ever have), powerlifting, and my body. My body was telling me how to recover but. But. But. My body said FEED ME so I started to feed my body in ways I wasn’t used to. CARBS. The dreaded carbs. Forbidden food. Pizza. Name it. PIZZA.

So I gained weight. The dreaded weight. Fast too, yeah. Fast. FEED ME. Chaos. I went from 10 lb dumbbells at home to a deadlift of over half my body weight And yeah muscles weighs more than fat but but but but but. This was all the old noise. (And this is common. There are 1001 YouTube videos about weight gain after beginning such a regimen.)
"Mars in scorpio"
So today I talked to my spirit guide (my trainer) because I decided NOT TO QUIT

and we talked and she asked me:

well what did you used to eat. Before power lifting. When it was just you and your home workouts (fine workouts but not what I’m doing now).

And I thought for a minute.

As little as possible I said.
As little as possible.
A lifetime of as little as possible.
As little food as possible.
(No wonder I was so excited when Intermittent Fasting became trendy.)

I hadn’t realized that this, this in particular, had been following me around. The end goal of everything: as little as possible. As little food. As little body. Always the same goal. And never reaching it either. See? You can’t even restrict right!

"sun square pluto"

And this:

Always knowing I am physically stronger than the “average woman” (my sister is the same, just genetics) and a series of mysterious events brought me to this local gym, to this place of exploring what my body can do and what it’s for. Not to get smaller. When I first met her I said: I want to get STRONGER. This isn’t a weight loss journey. I want to get stronger. I want to see how strong I can get.

"moon conjunct pluto"
December 2015

After I was done today, she said to me (if I remember correctly) that she knew my personality a bit now and knew I wasn’t going to quit. (Oh, so you see me. Hmm.)

That I was INVESTED.
Learning.
Overcoming body hatred and body shame, which was NOT my intention with this when I started.
She had made a list while we were talking of everything I was experiencing BESIDES the weight gain shame and excruciating DOMS.

You can decide, if you want, to not quit and to explore further. And it’s okay if you DO quit. But also explore NOT quitting. It might be worth it. Find someone who will listen. (Don’t quit.) 

It was like my identity shifted over the course of a month. From self-hatred to power. I knew I had it inside me. I knew it. Yes Moon Pluto always feels power but this was different. It was the inside manifesting on the outside. Strong energy, strong body. Then a setback. Then quitting. Then not quitting. Here we are and I’m telling you this story.

I know many of you will relate and/or are struggling with this very thing RIGHT NOW and you want to quit and you have no one to talk to and you feel hopeless.

I did a reading for someone today who said she’s been reading my blog for YEARS. It’s OKAY to email to just say HELLO. It really is. I may not write back always (sometimes life gets busy) but it’s nice to know who is out there and reading because I never know!

"mars in scorpio"

So there is another reason why I am telling you this story.

Mars entered Scorpio today and if there’s something Scorpio always does is NOT QUIT.

Sure they may put that fearless determination into crushing their enemies and actually I think that’s what I am doing.

Although it’s not any one person (and yet it is), IT IS.

I AM CRUSHING MY ENEMIES – fear, doubt, shame and this legacy of fear and doubt and shame LEAVE NOW. I’m sorry for your sickness, dear ancestors, but I am sending it to the grave.

"women who lift heavy"

This client I talked to today. Among other things we talked about imposter syndrome.

I said to her:

you already are HER.
That healer you KNOW you are. You feel it. You know it. You ARE her.

Love you guys, whoever you are xo

Is Mars In Scorpio Bad???


Let’s be honest.

People like Mars in Scorpio because Mars in Scorpio is sexy.

But that can’t be the beginning and the end of the blog post.

What else do we need to know about Mars in Scorpio today?
I have a few things I want to share…

"mars square pluto"

Scorpio is not a mess. On the surface :) 

There is much that is hidden. They hide the body! They have secrets. What you see on the surface? THAT IS NOT THE TRUE EXTENT OF THE MESS.

By mess I mean… whatever they feel they MUST hide from view and from you.

You may think you see it all or know it all but trust me – when it comes to Scorpio YOU DO NOT SEE IT ALL OR KNOW IT ALL.

And it may make you very uncomfortable the deeper you go, until you come to the glittering sea, the glittering Scorpio Sea. Yes, it exists!

This goes for any Mars in Scorpio in your life as well. Know that there are gaps in your knowledge about them.

"jupiter in scorpio"

Mars is NOT strategic

Mars jumps into the burning building, which is why astrologers like Mars in strategic signs, like Capricorn and Scorpio. Capricorn and Scorpio plan ahead! Astrologers (and everyone) want to CALM MARS DOWN. Calm down that bloody warrior!!! Be less impulsive, less angry, less brutal. Be more like the High Priestess ha!

But recall my point above: there is much hidden beneath the surface with Mars in Scorpio.

Scorpio slows Mars down
Scorpio slows Mars down
Scorpio slows Mars down
Scorpio slows Mars down

Repeating this for emphasis. For warning.

Because Mars enters Scorpio tomorrow and I want to encourage YOU to not thrash around like bold and rash Mars but to use your powers of perception FIRST and then make your move.

"moon opposition pluto"

I am NOT saying Mars in Scorpio are bad people, but I am saying that Scorpio slows Mars down. Scorpio gives Mars time to plot and plan before he or she strikes.

They do this instinctively. They may not be aware they are doing this but they are doing this and I think we can all benefit from this incoming energy. THINK BEFORE YOU ACT.

Why? It saves energy first of all (Mars will blow itself up but that is not Mars in Scorpio purpose) and second of all what’s the point of an “attack” if it isn’t precise? I know some attacks need not be precise and shouldn’t be precise but Mars in Scorpio IS.

Why am I talking about ATTACKS? Because that’s what Mars does.

To be continued…

Advice For Your Weekend: DO IT DIFFERENTLY (Mercury trine Uranus)

"venus square neptune"
Hmm. Looking at the landscape for this weekend. A few details. 

Mars enters Scorpio on Saturday (which needs its own blog post).
Moon will be in fret and putter Virgo.

Sunday is fascinating to me.

Mercury (retrograde) in Sagittarius and Venus in Sagittarius are busy (of course). Your mind and your heart. They’re in a wee bit of “trouble.”
A wee bit.

Mercury trine Uranus.
Venus square Neptune.
Mercury square Chiron.
All in one day!

AND the Virgo Moon will uncomfortably aspect the planets in Sag AND Uranus in Aries. It’s uneasy. Tricky. Discordant. Sagittarius wants no fences and VIRGO MOON IS A FENCE! Sag says LET’S GO and Virgo says: are you sure about that????

It’s not some terrible gruesome weekend BUT we have a mutable mess.

Gemini fills in the empty leg of the t-square. Are you listening Gemini?

I am not predicting the terrible and the gruesome but I think you will feel pressured to… measure up, to solve problems and put out fires, to be THE ONE they come to and make it all better, Gemini. And, frankly, I don’t think that’s your job — not this weekend anyway.

Mercury Uranus in inspired. GREAT!
But Venus Neptune is blindsided.
And Mercury Chiron is that negative tape loop in your head.
Can we just cruise on that Mercury Uranus vibration? Maybe.

How to navigate all this and turn it into something productive which is what Virgo Moon always wants? 

Putter. Tend to the little things. Straighten up the smaller room. Fold. 
BUT IN A MERCURY TRINE URANUS way. 

Do it differently.
Do it out of order.
Do it fresh and new and Uranus + Virgo + Mercury retrograde?
That’s the sky. It’s what we have. It’s good!
But do it differently than EVER before.
SING A NEW SONG!

"mars in scorpio"
This week. Hmm this week. Last week was SO DARK. The week, the weekend. I felt it. Crawling out of it. And let me tell you this week is better. I think this week is better. Why do I think this. Forget for a moment what we DO have. What we DO NOT have is a Full Moon, Mercury GOING retrograde, and a Mars Uranus opposition. Mars Uranus is VOLATILE and maybe nothing HAPPENED but many of us internalize this stuff. We feel it on the inside. Dark. Yucky. Angry. Impossible. THE END.

I know I know you could be an exception to this (hopefully not) but I think this week is easier.

Saturday:
Mars leaves lollipop Libra for secretive Scorpio. I’m TEASING! I’ve become a fan of Libra lately.  THANK YOU LIBRAS! Seriously. I probably have worked with Libra more than any other sign (is it so? Maybe).

But this is a significant shift!!! The focus becomes less on other people and more on our laser beam focused determination (which may be on a people yes it may be).

What is Scorpio? Aha wouldn’t you like to know???? Well, Jupiter is in Scorpio so there is a VERY Scorpio part of your life/chart/soul at this time!! And YES we will have a Mars Jupiter conjunction.

Remember that conjunctions are fusions. Conjunctions create a NEW BEING. It’s not Mars plus Jupiter. It’s not Jupiter plus Mars. It’s MARSJUPITER. What is MarsJupiter? What is MarsJupiter in Scorpio?

Mars is gonna take Jupiter in Scorpio and make it, well, it really depends where it is in YOUR CHART and what it’s doing to YOUR CHART. 

But in and of itself? I would use the word EXCESS here. Excessive force is possible. Excessive sexy. Excessive intense. Too much Mars? Hmm maybe.

Let’s use the gym as an example since I’m spending a lot of time there these days. On a Mars Jupiter day your energy will be HUGE. But in Scorpio? It will still be huge I think more precise. Fierce and precise and unstoppable. Pretty much.

SO. Somewhere in your chart this energy is coming. And coming. And coming.

Here’s some Mars Jupiter for you. The happy warrior.

Do You Ever Feel You Are Resisting Expansion? Where’s Your Jupiter?

"jupiter in scorpio"

To answer this question, we can turn our minds to JUPITER, who, in our lives, likes to make things grow.

Lately I feel like I’m resisting expansion so I wanted to bring this question to you.

ON THE OTHER HAND maybe it’s just not time. Doesn’t timing matter?

And on the other other hand, we grow in some areas and maintain in others.

Does life always have to be about conscious purposeful growth? Isn’t it always happening anyway?

Questions, questions…

Instructions For Crushing Your Dark Of The Night Soul + Full Moon In Gemini This Weekend

"ten of swords tarot"

You have to find something that forces you to focus. And you need a little bit of good advice. Just a little.

I prefer you *not* choose sex — as your focus —

unless you have someone you really like having sex with and there is a commitment there – healthy and loyal. But that’s my bias, I know.

Listen:

I teach independence.

Listen:

I mostly want you to choose something about YOU. For YOU. Something that isn’t dependent on anyone else’s body or emotions or choices but your own — for your dark night of the soul lantern.

This weekend surely is one. A Dark Night for many. I’ve been feeling it. FULL MOON in Gemini and a slew of other aspects, most of them involving NEPTUNE, but then there’s that Mars Uranus opposition so the sudden breaks and breakthroughs are, well, sudden. Jarring even.

Thus the instruction is to alternate deep REST with deep FOCUS. That’s your lantern and that’s how you light your way out of the Dark Night should you wish to Eight-of-Cups it out of there. Yes it’s a repeating card for me last 24 hours.

And then today I pulled the Strength card for advice (slow, patient, gentle) as I was on my way to the gym to work on my deadlift and squats!

"full moon in gemini"
patience

About Friday (tomorrow):

Venus enters Sagittarius and the Mars Uranus opposition is exact. This is a lot of fire. YOU WILL BE ENTHUSED. This isn’t good or bad per se but it’s a lot of energy. THINKS TAROT SUIT OF WANDS. That fire.

For those of you who have been in a dark night of the soul slump, Friday could indeed be a blessing. IT WAKES YOU UP.

The problem here is control (or focus). You may feel angry. You may feel all over the place. Impatient! Aggravated. You may be trying to make peace but nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

Mars in Libra (cooperation!) tries to tame lone wolf/leave-me-alone Uranus in Aries. Mars in Libra says BE NICE to Uranus in Aries. Mars in Libra feels sorry for him/herself. Uranus DOES NOT CARE. And Mars in Libra does not like Uranus’ swashbuckling ways! So they fight! AND Venus wants to par-tay! She leaves secretive Scorpio for storytelling Sagittarius. MANY WILL HAVE A STORY TO TELL ABOUT TOMORROW.

Saturday: JUPITER TRINE NEPTUNE one of THE MOST spiritual aspects I think this aspect may be God him/herself

Sunday: MERCURY GOES RETROGRADE IN SAGITTARIUS and the Sun is square Neptune AND we have that Full Moon in Gemini which is also square Neptune!

NEPTUNE NEPTUNE NEPTUNE NEPTUNE DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL and Mars Uranus and Venus into Sagittarius is your hammer to crush it like a walnut IF that’s what you want. Maybe you’ve cried enough and moped enough and you just need a hammer or a barbell on your back.

It’s December 2017. We made it.

WEEPY + HEALING Venus Trine Chiron Let It Flow

"venus trine chiron"
You’re totally on the edge of what hurts you, totally on the edge and you see at the edge of the edge that maybe just maybe that little light in the distance which could end all your misery.

Wait.
Stop. T

hat’s impossible right? ALL MISERY CANNOT END but

but

there can still be a little light and there is magic in the world, right?

The new newsletter here so please LOOK it is about the Full Moon in Gemini which is coming this weekend 

But what I want to talk to you about right now is VENUS TRINE CHIRON which is healing love. OF SELF!!! OF ALL YOUR FLAWS LOVE OF SELF LOVE OF SELF LOVE OF SELF LOVE OF SELF!

Venus trine Chiron takes all your self-defeating hopeless self-loathing, hating, all the ways you reject yourself, YOUR CRIPPLING INSECURITY, it takes all of that and…

smiles on it. GRINS on it!! That’s what it does!!!!

It may last but a moment but it’s a good moment because it’s so easy. For a moment. And unexpected. For a moment. Because it’s not just Venus trine Chiron EXACT today but also the Venus Uranus inconjunct which makes this ship bounce and feel uneasy a little motion sickness HOW CAN I POSSIBLE HEAL THIS RACKETY RICKETY OLD SHIP BUT STILL

the trine. The trine comes to big kiss you. Today.

"venus trine chiron"

What else do you need to know? Nothing. That’s it. Except that the new newsletter is out and the Black Friday deals continue TODAY!!!

And Then The Letting Go: Mercury Square Chiron (Nov 24th)

"mercury square chiron"
From some experiences we do not recover. Life hands them over like terrible hostages. Or maybe you are the hostage of the bad dream that came to life. I’ll tell you right now what to do about it:

feel the feeling and let it go.

Now what does this mean: feel the feeling. 

I’ll tell you what it doesn’t mean.

It doesn’t mean it takes a minute. It often takes longer than a minute. It can take years. But you feel. You feel that ten year feeling and then you let it go. I think we hold on because we don’t want to let it go. Because often it’s all we have left. Someone dies and our grief is what’s left. We carry it like we carry their favorite coat. I still have two of my mother’s perfumes (from over 20 years ago).

The blog post I wrote right before this one is here and has a similar theme. Click here to read. 

"mercury square chiron"

This weekend we have an exercise in this letting go because today and tomorrow could make you wince a little.

Mercury in Sagittarius who just wants to say whatever is on their mind comes up against Chiron and painfully so. It’s not just self-doubt. It’s feeling like nothing you ever think or say is okay.

Do you have a Chiron square to a personal planet?

You may feel like you are wrong or mistaken for even existing.

I don’t recommend being born with this aspect but if you have it, you have it and if you have it, you are a teacher. I’m sorry you have to live with this bloody broken heart but the only way to possibly alleviate some of this pain is to accept this fate and not isolate yourself in your pain.

So teach, teacher. You have to teach.

Thanksgiving Astrology Blues Clues + Your Chariot Awaits

"mercury trine uranus"
Little moments can take you out of yourself, good OR bad.

I had one of these today – was feeling fine and then I got a “little moment” and I felt out of my inner peace into something darker and Chiron.

It was all Chiron. A Chiron moment. Here is a link to a recent Chiron post. 

And no surprise then that a Mercury Chiron aspect is building now in the sky and could cause you some small pain, some little moment of wound or disappointment — no matter how stable you actually are or feel. Chiron isn’t always present reality. Still can hurt though.

Don’t let it bring you down. Because you are more than THAT, whatever it is. You are always more than what you hate the most about yourself, more than your wound.

"Venus square Chiron"

The weekend looks better, much better.

Mercury squares Chiron yes but then turns around to trine Uranus. The “trine” is positive, flowing, harmony. Not edgy like the square.

It’s like…

you speed so fast, so far, from that painful place. Yes.

I remember when I left Philadelphia. This was after grad school and before my mother had died. I moved to Philly for a few months because a few friends had moved to Philly and I just didn’t know what to do with myself. I was 25, a poet, skill-less, a graduate of THE creative writing program and… I moved to Philly.

I stayed for a bit with some warm-hearted cousins (I felt lost) and eventually I rented my own place in some artist’s house (I felt lost) who had lampshades hung up on the walls, but it just didn’t work. I was smoking over a pack of Marlboro Reds a day.

I remember calling my mother crying (nothing new there) and I decided to move back to Iowa City (which I had always liked) but not before stopping “back home” in Miami.

I forget how long I stayed but I remember the Greyhound bus ride down south, how happy and relieved I was to be leaving that dirty painful city and heading back home to mom.

That’s what this progression feels like to me. The pain of Mercury square Chiron sadness becoming Mercury trine Uranus freedom. Freedom from pain.

And then to make things even better and more healing, Venus makes that same good aspect (the trine) to Chiron on Sunday.

GOALS: FREEDOM FROM SELF-HATRED.

So, basically, don’t worry too much if you feel sad and unmotivated today and tomorrow. Things will look up. Your chariot awaits.

xoxo

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.

"moon conjunct pluto"

I will end this blog post with his words:
“We encounter the Divine, the Holy, in our own way.  As we grow and deepen our spiritual roots, our view of God, will change.”

"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.

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 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

Vomit On The Veil: On Scorpio Season & The Neptune Sea

Let’s talk upcoming transits. Transits are where the planets are now and how they affect us.

You may think I don’t want to waste my time in this Neptune sea, but I recommend you waste your time in this Neptune sea.

You want to be psychic? Want to “improve your intuition?” Want to talk to the dead? Come to the Neptune sea. It’s starting. Mercury’s in Scorpio. Sun’s in Scorpio. Jupiter too. They will trine Neptune as will Venus and Mars once they leave Libra. We don’t have a choice. This is what happens, it’s what the planets do.

Remember that a trine is the easier energy to manage that we take for granted. Stuff just falls in our laps. Good stuff. We get lucky. We are lucky. We don’t notice it. Important to remmeber this when you feel forsaken and forgotten. There’s a trine in the sky if not in your chart (although you may have at least ONE. I knew a woman who had NONE).

And you may think: I want a guarantee, but you don’t need a guarantee. That’s the work of the trine. It says YES. So we all get a YES under this sky.

Listen closely now: I’m going to tell you the only thing that Pluto has to teach us and Pluto co-rules Scorpio (along with Mars). Here’s your Pluto lesson for the day:  the way you survive this life is by making it okay no matter what you lose. Master that and you’ve got it made.

My mother was a Scorpio. Y’all should know this by now. Sun Mercury Venus Mars. I grew up with this energy. I know how ugly it can be. I know how holy it can be. I am her product. See me? Read me? I speak for her now. Scorpio Season is NOW. It’s ugly and it’s holy. Is it worth it to you? To stay with it? Do you want to? Do you want it? Is it worth it? 

I know my mother carried more letters full of secrets than the US postal service and of course I remember her during Scorpio Season and especially November when her birthday is. She didn’t have the Scoripo Pisces trine though.

But we do. We will. All of it can be redeemed over these days, over all these days until the Sun changes sign next month so the question remains like I asked above:

Is it worth it.
Do you want it.
Is it worth it.
Do you want it.

I’ll tell you what I’m thinking. I want it. Whether it’s worth it? I’ll let you know.

Sagittarius in Hell + The Stars This Week!

"venus square pluto"
Sagittarius is the storyteller.

They don’t stop talking. And I don’t mean this in a mean or critical way.

I’ve always had Sagittarius in my life, especially women. I love them. My favorite priest is a Sagittarius. Even the friendly and fierce manager of my favorite coffee shop is a Sag. And yes I’m sure there are quiet and demure ones, but I haven’t met them yet in real life.

Also as you probably know, Saturn (symbolizing restriction, limitation, wisdom, the teacher) is leaving Sagittarius this December and will enter its home sign of Capricorn.

So please get ready to listen to Sagittarius.

This is my advice: you will need to be patient.

Almost every Sagittarius Sun, Moon, and Rising has been through hell over the last 2 1/2 years and they have a lot to say. So be patient. Listen. Okay okay tune out when you must ;) but then LISTEN!!!!

Sagittarius, believe it or not, has been QUIET all this time. They have not been able to speak their truth, not like they need to, not like they SHOULD!

But Saturn leaves their sign and they will finally be free to speak again and teach again and travel again and roam and romp again. They will be free to tell their stories again, feel hope again.

And it will be worth listening to.

THE STARS THIS WEEK:

I was about to say it was going to be an uneventful week

UNTIL I saw Venus square Pluto (exact on Friday).

Earlier in the week, while that square is building:

Mercury trine Neptune (Tuesday) is a breeze. It’s BLISS. Blissful. Your mind on drugs except you don’t need any. I have this in my natal. I call it the poet’s aspect! Yes it’s great for writing.

Sun conjunct Jupiter (Thursday) is a full on ray of sunshine, but it’s SCORPIO SUNSHINE this week. We’re traveling through the underworld. The underworld can be dark. The underworld can be steamy. THE UNDERWORLD IS FULL OF DEAD PEOPLE. It’s the underworld after all.

WATCH WHERE YOU STEP.

What to do?

How to act?

Who to talk to?

What to avoid?

Honestly I think this week feels GOOD but it feels better for some than others.

For those of us who enjoy intense Pluto undercurrents, we are in our element. This is our sea. We never want to stay on the surface of things anyway.

The Venus Pluto square isn’t bad but it keeps us on edge all week with questions such as:

who really has the power here? Me? Them?

Who? And do I even want it?? Do I want to give it up? Hmmmm???

Problems may arise because Venus’ seduction skills can cloak some of the more nefarious Pluto influences. And you may fall hook, line, and sinker for whatever Pluto offers you.

Listen to me:

YOU DON’T HAVE TO TAKE IT.

Take your time. Evaluate. DO YOUR RESEARCH. Scorpio always does

AND THIS:

I keep thinking about this combination: Scorpio Season begins today (writing to you Sunday October 22nd) with Mars entering Libra:

Mars “rules” Scorpio (traditional ruler).

And Mars in Libra hunts Libra people places things. Mars in Libra hunts LOVE.

With the Sun in Scorpio it’s gonna be more relentless. Ruthless even.

So I recommend you figure out what you want and go for it but in a Libra way. Charm it.

Choose your weapon (i.e. strategy) and make sure it’s a pretty one

And this:

Don’t hunt anything you do not HAVE TO HAVE.

These times, these days, right now, are for keeps. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

What To Do For Scorpio Season: TIPS & TRICKS

"jupiter in scorpio"
I want to tell you what to do for Scorpio Season
without giving you an insipid list of tips and tricks

or tell you that the veil is thinning even though the veil is indeed thinning.

It’s more like a wall for most people. A WALL.

And now even necromancy is getting trendy. Good luck with that. Don’t forget to ground and shield, y’all.

When I tried to reach my beloved Cleo earlier this year, and I did try, it was part veil, part wall, part indestructible determination on my part. Got as close as I could (pretty damn close). 

Scorpio Season or Samhain Season puts us in the mind of dealing with the dead so that’s why. That’s why the “veil thins.” Because everybody’s doing it! Makes the veil weaker. Makes the veil gossamer. 

This week we have a New Moon in Libra opposing Uranus and what is Moon Uranus my friends? Crazy. This week we have Mercury entering Scorpio and meeting up with Jupiter. What is Mercury Jupiter? Crazy.

But seriously: 

Mercury Jupiter is joyful, but in Scorpio? That shit is dark. Daaaaaark.

And by dark I mean not all this death and rebirth transformation romantic sexy phoenix jizz but the lower levels, the lower floors. THE BASEMENT. Basements smell. Basement Scorpio manipulates and the Sun enters Scorpio too this week and…

Let me remind you that I love Scorpio. My mother had her Sun Mercury Venus and Mars in Scorpio and I loved my mother, good Cancer that I am.

Any words here are not ANTI SCORPIO but please don’t think for a moment that there isn’t always something else going on with Scorpio. Always.

And NO it’s not the same for all signs and all times. Some signs, like Scorpio, like Libra, are always thinking three four five six steps ahead. Personally I find it exahusting, sensitive teddy bear Cancer that I am.

:)

So here’s your tip, here’s your trick for getting the most out of Scorpio Season and really any time of year when Scorpios are afoot: 

LEARN from the Scorpios who appear to have what they want and need in this life and learn from the ones who are writhing in agony. You get lessons from both. Learn, listen, watch. 

And this: intensity is not the same thing as maturity or wisdom or kindness.

Happy New New Moon. 
Happy Jupiter in Scorpio 
Happy END OF TRANSITING PLUTO OPPOSING MY SUN (it’s been years, in combination with other brutal transits). 

But how are you, my darling?

Pluto Goes Direct + This Weekend Two For One *SALE*

"pluto goes direct"
Some thoughts about Pluto going direct in Libra Season can be found HERE at my Tree City Witch column over at Patheos Pagan in which I don’t actually recommend you do blood magick. Do your craft at your own risk, my friends.

Here’s a taste:

Another way this could play out and this scenario is pretty likely actually: you will become obsessed with love. Libra rules love. You will become obsessed with desire, with feeding your desire, gaining power over your desire. You will feel unstoppable, insatiable, hungry. The result of this I’m not so sure. I don’t know your chart. But I guarantee you this: you will feel your desire multiply and you will want to feed.

This is why we’ll be talking JUPITER, what this planetary energy means big picture, and we’ll be talking SCORPIO – the sign Jupiter is entering – and we’ll be talking YOUR CHARTS. Mars and Pluto “rule” Scorpio so those energies will get our attention as well!

I will post videos every week (usually from my phone, directly uploaded to the secret group. No one else can see these!)

I will bring us thought provoking discussion prompts every week.

Each chart will get discussed more than once!

I will maintain a regular presence and be available to answer questions.

We will discuss the nature of Jupiter, the nature of Scorpio, the MAJOR aspects Jupiter in Scorpio will make to the outer planets during its transit!

YOU just need to show up :) talk if you want, lurk if you want.

You do NOT need to know anything about astrology to enjoy this class and to learn, but it’s also suitable for astrology mavens! We will jump right in!

Are You Virgo Enough? Thoughts On The Stars Next Week!

"full moon in pisces"
Virgo Season/Pisces Full Moon ahoy


My blog is not dead. I’m still here!

As I often say I’m easier found on Facebook and I’m working on draft two of my book. My Tarot class launches next week (click here!) and if you want to get my free newsletter this is where to look.
Life.
Busy.
But I have NOT forgotten you! 

"sun trine pluto"
Sun trine Pluto

Let’s talk astrology: 

Mercury has retrograded back to Leo.
The Moon is in work work work Capricorn as I type this.

This week we have an exciting inspiring passionate Mars Uranus trine (harmonious).
Mercury retro conjoins Mars on Sunday (talk talk talk)
AND THEN NEXT WEEK LISTEN TO THIS: 

Sun opposes Neptune 
Mars enters Virgo 
Mercury goes direct 
Full Moon in Pisces 
SUN TRINE PLUTO 
Mercury re-enters Virgo

There are additional “minor” aspects of course but this is the major action and it’s all about YOUR VIRGO/PISCES axis.

You figure this out once you know your birth time which will lead you to your Rising Sign which will lead you to knowing the house division of your chart and THEN you know okay THIS is my Virgo house and THIS is my Pisces.  (Yes you can hire me to help you with this.)

We all have Virgo and Pisces SOMEWHERE even if we do not have natal planets in those signs. Also, we have transiting planets in both those signs so it matters!!! Your Virgo Pisces axis matters! Tis the key to RIGHT NOW. 

Y’all know I’m personal. I’m a personal, spiritual, practical astrologer. YES I talk about the collective and collective energy but your chart is YOUR CHART.

My advice for this week: 

I refuse. I refuse to walk the road I usually do with this: Virgo neat and clean or messy but critical. Pisces la la la Neptune. The interaction between these two sides. Tidy and chaotic. Mercury mind and Neptune bliss and breeze. I refuse. Let me think up something a little more interesting. Give me a minute. 

What I sense is this:
the pressure is on.

And you will have to schedule in your Neptune moments.

I don’t know if this is more of the same old “advice” but it’s what I’m feeling here —

Virgo dominates the week, but that Full Moon in Pisces walks in the room to say:
HEY LISTEN TO ME!
I MATTER TOO.

I matter too. 

And this ignored MATTER of the matter is (in) your Pisces House!

Make sense? 

BEST part of this week is that powerful Sun Pluto trine. Your work takes on a golden hue. You’re not resentful. You’re swimming in Virgoan/Capricornian job-well-done delight.

It feels good. It is good. On top of your game you are!!!

"moon conjunct pluto"

Okay folks! I’m out for now. Find me on Facebook! We’d love to see you in the Tarot class! We start on Tuesday – it’s a six week journey into the heart of the Tarot and Tarot deck creation guidance, whether your deck is REAL or imaginary. 

That said, we DO have actual artists in there :) and they ARE gonna make decks. Am I? Maybe someday. For me it’s more about the creative process and the discovery. It always is.

The Sun Is Almost In Virgo Rejoice Little Witches Return To Your Practical Magick!

Secretarial:

The second newsletter is out! I am probably going to send out a little one later this week. You can sign up HERE.

Here is the link to my Tarot Deck Creation & Exploration class which starts Sept. 5th.

There is a new video up on the site. You can see it when you sign up for the Free Trial. A few beautiful PDFs as well.

My maternal great-grandmother

So I want to talk about Virgo Season. I have to talk about Virgo Season.

I am a Virgo Rising so Leo time for me is the 12th House and the ascendent is the line between the night of the 12th and the day of the 1st and here we go. At least for us Virgo Risings.  BACK TO WORK. Flow better.

I know for YOU it may be different because your chart is different, but hear me out: 

Virgo rules service, work, the details. Virgo people are always up to something. We are not good at rest and relaxation, especially the Risings, South Nodes, and Virgo Moons WE DO NOT STOP.

And it’s not that Leos don’t work hard. Of course they do. But every sign, every planet has it’s own particular brilliance. Virgo brilliance (some of it) is for work and the truth is I grew into my Virgo side. It wasn’t until I was my own boss that I could start to embody my massively Virgo chart.

And of course there’s more but I wanted to get us started. It is TIME to return to work and school and all the projects you put on hold for whatever reason.

I know Mercury is still RX but Mercury likes a little review! Fear not!

Return, my loves! Return!

What is Virgo to you? Do you have planets in Virgo?

"when is the solar eclipse in leo"
What you have to do is be strong.

Sometimes I advocate kindness and compassion. Well, I’m not NOT advocating kindness and compassion, but today I’m advocating “be strong” because I keep seeing this guy.

The question is: strong for what?

And I feel my age truly. Turned a year older not long ago and everything is different now.

The eclipse is well-aspected, trine both Saturn and Uranus.
Why this King of Swords warning?

Because such strength and maturity is asked of you at this time, as it always is during the eclipses and not just because it’s a lot of churning energy in the air. You’re being asked to step up. Do you want to step up? I don’t want to step up. I want to nap. But I step up. Trying!!!

Whatever you’ve avoided you cannot keep avoiding. Eclipses have this way of removing any veils or hiding places and this goes for the Lunar AND the Solar.

It’s a changing of the guard. Breakthrough. Endings and beginnings.
Say so long to what was.

For some it may be scary. For others, exhilarating. You are flung from one end to the other. Think about it. Think back to recent eclipses. You’ll see. Where you were. Where you are.

And maybe for you there is SO MUCH that needs to change that you welcome such energies. I like that. I like that a lot. I wish you smooth passage.

Okay my dears, I must go for now. Best way to keep up with me is on Facebook 
xoxo
