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!

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.

“We encounter the Divine, the Holy, in our own way.  As we grow and deepen our spiritual roots, our view of God, will change.”

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.

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 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.

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?
:)

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!

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

"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 

INTO THE FIRE: Five Tips For The Sun Jupiter Conjunction In Scorpio (October 26th)

1
Be courageous. Do something BRAVE. Do something you’re afraid to do. Can you think of just one thing? Don’t compare it to anyone else’s thing. The astrology? Mars rules Scorpio, along with Pluto, and Mars is brave. Mars runs into the fire.

2
Tell a story. I was talking to a client the other day about speaking her truth, going deeper and deeper into her story, returning to her past to bear witness. This Sun Jupiter conjunction in Scorpio happens in her Third House, which rules words, written and spoken, but Sun Jupiter is always a storyteller no matter the sign. What do you need to say? 

3
Be yourself. Be yourself boldly and proudly. The Sun is YOU and Jupiter is confident! Jupiter “expands what it touches.” Is there a part of you that you’d prefer to forget? Reclaim it! You wish it weren’t there? Reclaim it! Explore and reclaim it!

4
Visit the underworld. Visit the underworld with flowers or other gifts while you’re retrieving the lost parts of you. Who do you want to visit? Or maybe there’s an answer you seek. Spend time in meditation, chakra balancing, shamanic journeying. I do not make this list haphazardly or flippantly. These are all things I value and Scorpio Season especially a Sun Jupiter conjunction in Scorpio REQUIRES our attention to the spiritual. Sun Jupiter is happy. Enter smiling.

5
Return to your magick. Maybe you’ve been away from your altar, your ritual. Maybe you left some practices behind or it all feels dull. You want to reconnect. START AGAIN TOMORROW. This aspect happens but once a year! When was the last time you lit a candle with clear intention? When was the last you had a clear intention or pushed your energy into your desire? Recommit to your magick.

These are just for starters my friends. Of course there’s more! Let me know what you come up with xoxo

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!

Pluto Opposition Sun: DONE

"pluto oppose sun"

I can’t believe it. I’m in shock.

And I know I’m going to be blogging about this for a while to come. 
Saturn square my Moon DONE. Not out of my Fourth House yet but Saturn square Moon DONE. 

AND PLUTO OPPOSING MY SUN IS DONE. 

And I first had Pluto Sun when I had Uranus Sun. Same time. YEARS AGO. I was still in NYC. And then came Saturn on my IC square my Ascendent (bad!).

So this is a personal post and I’m here to tell you that I’m on the mountain now. Or maybe I’m in the field. Maybe it’s a dirt road. I don’t know what it is but it’s DONE. I’m on the other side. Pluto promises (does Pluto promise?) death and rebirth.

It’s hard to explain but I’ll try. I feel it. I feel on the other side and yes Pluto has more of my planets to oppose but at the later degrees have more support and the SUN IS THE SUN. There is only one Sun in your chart and one Ascendent and one Moon. The heart of you.

All I can say is… the ending of this transit is so major that… I don’t know anything and yet I know everything (everything I needed to know) and I kept working throughout it all. Rarely did I stop. I stopped for Hurricane Irma. I think I stopped BRIEFLY when I left NYC for Ohio and then Florida.

I feel all this… space. And I’m not sure what to do with it yet or where I’m going. I do know that my book is supposed to come out next year and… we’ll see. Life before the Uranus Pluto square. Life after the Uranus Pluto square. Life before Pluto Sun. Life after Pluto Sun.

To be continued…

Uranus Retrograde, Jupiter Square Pluto + Tarot Class Thoughts

This is what I posted on my Instagram this morning about my upcoming Tarot class.:

I may just draw the Hanged Man over and over when I create my Tarot deck.
72 Hanged Man.

Already I’m starting to think visually. And I’m the kind of person who will say: I don’t think visually. But already it’s starting and in the middle of the night I had a thought and the thought had an image that I wanted to draw.

This is what my upcoming class is for. Bloodletting. Self expression. Creation.

And this is not so much a commercial but wanted to talk about my process and how making pictures is this other form of self expression that I’ve been alienated from for decades except for two versions of Tarot cards that I drew in 2015 which was a very bad year.

So I’m thinking there’s a missing piece here. So I’m thinking that maybe I found something. And I got up just now to draw what had been in my head overnight. My head cut off floating in the water, just above the waves.

There is a poem I love that begins: I know there is a worm in the human heart. I like to quote it every so often.

That too is my Hanged Man. Sometimes our lives are one card and one card only for years. And other times we shift between two or three. Sometimes maybe the whole deck. And maybe other times our lives go so blank we are that No-Thingness card from the Osho Zen Tarot. Black canvas. Pitch.

What I know is this: Life is a constant process of falling apart and coming together (or the illusion of it )and there are waves and drawing along with writing can take you deeper into the waves which is ultimately healing. Why? Because it makes you feel. Which is different than not feeling. Maybe someday your head won’t be bobbing on top of the water. At the very least, take a picture while it’s there.

So basically the class is to crack open your heart but I didn’t know that before. 

I’ve been drawing a lot which means three drawings this morning after two (?) years of none. I’m one of those “I can’t draw” people.

"lunar eclipse aquarius"
The Hanged Man

My drawings are simple as you can see here! I don’t know if I’ll ever make a deck-deck. You know, have it printed, etc. In the meantime I like doing exactly what I’m doing and I like having IMAGES spring up in my head. It’s using a part of my brain (soul? body?) that’s been asleep for a very long time.

AND I’ve decided that my Tarot deck will have a Major Arcana but it won’t follow the Fool’s Journey. It won’t be Fool through World. And I don’t know where it’s going yet or how it will change, but I’ve begun and it’s a purgative. Here’s Woman in the Waves. Major Arcana card no. 2.

"lunar eclipse aquarius"

A couple weeks ago in my other class (the one that keeps getting extended, the one that’s gone on for months now) I drew cards about my stuckness and all these Cups came up, including the King of Cups, Mr Stuck himself. Has to master those emotions, right? Yeah but. Squashing and repressing and pushing away is NOT mastery.

Stuff is coming up now. Starting to. Through the waves. Taking an axe to the ice.

***
Uranus retrograde is a magical marvelous transit. Think I’m crazy? I may be. Uranus is crazy too. Uranus retrograde stops this damn hurtling from hurtling so much. We get a break from the tireless tiresome invention. Isabel Hickey (who I quote often) wrote: Saturn builds. Uranus breaks. Aquarius is ruled by both! And our Monday Eclipse is in Aquarius with Uranus retrograde! Something from long ago. Something from the deep deep deep deep deep deep deep deep past is leaving your life. You won’t miss it. It’s an old deep tired pain. Retire it. Return it. Ground it. Give it away. It probably wasn’t yours to begin with. You borrowed it. Give it back. Hand it off. Let it go. Goodbye goodbye goodbye.

In other news, Jupiter squares Pluto tomorrow (exact) which I wrote about the other day and your Pluto is EXPANDING.

What is Pluto to you? 

I’ll tell you what Pluto is to me although I speak as a First House Pluto person. Pluto is regeneration. Intensity and volcanic passion. It scares people. Depth. Intuition. All this is good Pluto. We don’t stop searching for meaning.

Jupiter in Libra squares Pluto tomorrow and yes bad Pluto (manipulation, coercion) can show up but good Pluto can also show up. Probably some of both will show up. You may feel overwhelmed at times if you aren’t used to this much Pluto, but there’s also much to enjoy about this aspect. Sex, for example.

As for me, I’ll be using my Moon Pluto conjunction to help clients find their way home and then it will be the weekend AND THEN THE ECLIPSE so rest up, my friends.

A Letter To Jupiter In Libra: To The Broken-Hearted Who Haven’t Found Love

"jupiter in libra"
Our Lady


I don’t know why you haven’t found love yet
, and yes it does concern me.

You aren’t the only one I talk to who hasn’t found love.

I don’t mean to make you sound un-special because you are special. You are unique. I just mean you aren’t alone in this. Hey, I’m right there with you. My love life is legendarily bad. Venus on the South Node in a t-square with the outer planets can do that to a witch. But enough about me.

I feel you. I hear you. I’m writing for you and to you. And I’m not going to tell you not to mourn or worry

but I do want to tell you take a breath even in the midst of that “party I’ve never been invited to” feeling.

Not gonna dismiss your feelings or invalidate your feelings or tell you that your own crap karma got you in this position (despite my own chart details!). I’m not gonna blame you. We both know that the hooked up vs. the unhooked up look alike. They aren’t better looking or more talented or evolved in any special way. Really!

I’ve got gorgeous successful forever-single clients. Or they had long relationships that are now since gone and can’t seem to find mid-life love. Whatever the case. Whatever the case you aren’t alone and I wish I had the answer. It’s almost no point sometimes in even asking the Tarot because the answers can be smug: oh you need to do this or that and obviously you aren’t doing this or that correctly OR YOU WOULD HAVE THE LOVE YOU SEEK. Fuck off Law of Attraction.

Dear Jupiter in Libra: 

You won’t be Libra in forever. HURRY THE FUCK UP.

You, God of Abundance! God of Luck! Soon enough you’ll be in dark disturbing relentless bottomless pit SCORPIO (I kid, I kid). We only have until when? September?

Can you PLEASE help these folks out? They are good people. They bathe regularly. They’re mostly sane! They mean well. They are smart and interesting and innocent and all the good things. It’s not fair. Jupiter in Libra WHY AREN’T YOU BEING FAIR? LIBRA IS FAIR.

Jupiter, I know you rule blessing so I am going to pray. I am going to pray every day until you leave Libra that my clients who want love so bad will find  GOOD LOVE.

Thank you.

Love,
Mama MoonPluto looking after my flock.

Advice For The New Moon In Leo, New Tarot Class, & Getting Unstuck

 

"new moon eclipse in leo"
Hanged Man – 2015. Pastel. Staten Island.

In my current class, I’m starting to talk about Getting Unstuck (which is the name of a series of Pema Chodron talks so I started listening again) and asked them to draw cards for themselves:

Are they stuck? Actually stuck?

The cards will say yes or no and HOW (the how is embedded in the suit so you have to know your Tarot suits and elements) and then of course I drew a card of advice.

I wasn’t sure what would arise but I’m not surprised. I am definitely stuck and I think it will take me a few days to process just those two cards but I know I KNOW I am on the right track. An exercise like this can take you not only into the essence of “what you need to know now” but also into the essence of certain cards. I now NEED TO KNOW what those cards mean so I can know what my life means.

This getting unstuck discussion is related to the Nodes and the coming Eclipses – those areas of our lives which require our attention over the next 18 months or so.

It’s funny. Or not. What we want to focus on isn’t always what the chart and life requires. It’s not always good food, vacation, and romance! And maybe it’s that rarely or never or some of the time!

But what I notice is this – about transits – how they unfold. Especially these longish ones like where the Nodes are by transit and the Nodes don’t feel as scary as Pluto or Saturn so we can exhale around them – not seize up. Although I have written about my Pluto Sun opposition transit all along, it comes with fear. Not as much with the Nodes. There’s more wonder or fascination or hmm. But definitely a sign that says FOCUS HERE my dear.

So that’s my homework for you. Draw two cards AND ponder this:

What do you understand, about your life now, from where the Nodes are now, in your chart? 

They may be “problems” that have required your attention for years, decades, but you weren’t able to face them, clear them, SEE them, until now.

This week we have Mars entering Leo, the Sun entering Leo, and then the New Moon in Leo this weekend.

Card One: Am I stuck (how am I stuck)

Card Two: Advice for getting unstuck

And report back what you discover.

Finishing Up Jupiter In Libra + New Tarot Class + EMOTIONAL WALLS

"how to read tarot cards"
The High Priestess in the house


It’s only through relationship that we find out who we are and where we’re at — at any given moment.

I have a new post on Patheos Pagan that speaks to this somewhat. It’s about Leo Season coming up and also a reminder about the Eclipses this August. Yes, they are on the way.

But what’s on my mind today is Jupiter in Libra.

Jupiter won’t be in Libra that much longer, just a few months. Venus rules Libra and Venus is a mirror. We see ourselves in it.

Over the last few days I’ve been getting the same message. That I’m closed or closed off.
Not my words but found it interesting. WALLS.

On the one hand it’s an introvert thing. I go into public spaces (like church or shul or wherever) and absorb energy. I’m not there to small talk. And a friendly acquaintance noted my wall. I feel I AM friendly to her. I like her a lot.

And I thought to myself: yes, Pluto in the First House. We have a wall. Cancer Stellium in the 11th. Plenty more walls. Virgo Rising. Also can be a wall of reserve.

And then it happened again today. No one commented on my behavior or social style but THROUGH an interaction with another human I saw myself. And it shocked me.

An occupational hazard of the work I do and maybe you can relate:
I get out of my way so that I can SEE YOU. But then where am I?

We all need feedback so that we know WE EXIST. Jupiter in Libra can help. Jupiter in Libra, for the rest of this transit, should fill your life with PEOPLE. Let it. Don’t be a monk, please. Not now. Save it for Jupiter in Scorpio perhaps but not now.

So this class is coming up! Here is the link (and the course description isn’t all up yet, still some tweaking but these are the basics – there will be weekly videos as well).  And it’s relevant to this discussion here. And I hope you will check it out and see if it is right for you and visit the other classes being offered. It’s a Tarot class that I’m doing, shortly after Labor Day (early September) – six weeks – a make your own Tarot deck class but it’s so much more than that.

I mean it’s about exploration and creativity AND Tarot. It’s about all the choices the creation of a deck present. It’s about imagery and story and your life. Imagine that. That your deck shows your life. Would you? Could you?

And through the process of talking with my collaborator today I made this stark discovery about WALLS – which also came through all the CUPS cards I kept drawing. Cup after Cup after Cup. Relationships. Emotions. Walls or no walls. Emotional free-flow or Four of Cups NO. 

People who live in community vs. the monks among us… it’s so different. A good friend was shocked to hear that I often have my phone set to ringer OFF. I have no parents, no children. I don’t have a parter. I have clients and friends but I check my phone often enough. Still she was surprised. For the monks among us, there’s a different kind of emergency. It’s not usually a phone call.

I wasn’t meaning to make this blog post a commercial. I was just going to mention the class at the end but I realize now, through writing this, that the class will be a journey for me too and that in order to connect – to anyone AND to ourselves – we need each other. 

This pre-Eclipse revelation hits me straight in my monk-like heart.

Are you watching Jupiter in Libra at the mid-degrees?
Is it aspecting your chart?

When I think about my heart right now, I see it, I feel it. So much pouring out of it, like a waterfall. The image is of water but I’m not sure it’s tears. I don’t know what these waves are made of, but they pour and pour and pour.

Just message me if you have any questions about anything, about the class, about Jupiter in Libra, about how I can help you xoxo much love my darlings the Eclipses are almost here and they come to change the course of our lives. Truth!

How Life Works & Because I Know Not Everyone Follows My Facebook :)

"mars square chiron"
I’ll tell you how astrology works and how life works.

The transits, where the planets are now and how they affect us, will prod us, challenge us, inspire us…

And if we are smart and somewhat conscious we notice this and sit with it and make some decisions about our life direction
AND THEN

we run smack into the challenges of our own natal chart. Ouch.

See?

I can tell someone about the incredible opportunity on the way. An open door. A gift. Help. Astrology is good at this kind of timing.

And maybe they will even say yes, that sounds good…

But then comes the wall.

The fears and doubts and complexes that we all have in our own particular ways in our charts.

It may be a Saturn problem. Or a nodal axis problem. Maybe it’s a Sun square Moon problem

And I admit it’s a fascinating process. When I see it in the chart. Because I love to see deeply and pour over charts and take notes.

And do my best to reach in and talk to this soul on the other side of the phone or screen

That the time is NOW
The Crossroads is here

And just like Mary said yes, the person says yes
But then ….. lol

Then down comes the natal chart which can feel like a prison.
All the old traumas that say NO

It’s a beautiful thing to understand. To watch it happen. To see it in the charts and to root for the person. The drawbridge going up the drawbridge going down.

But suddenly today it became so freaking clear in so few words:
the transit prod us and then we run smack into the challenges of our charts. Bam bam bam

LOVE YOU
