Ronda Rousey + Your Saturn In Sagittarius Cure For Pain

I’ve got two things on my mind for today’s blog post:

1) the astrology of Ronda Rousey + her upcoming transits

2) your Saturn in Sagittarius cure for pain

I will write about the STARS THIS WEEK in a separate blog post

This is not a comprehensive reading for Ms. Rousey. Just a few things:

I got Ronda’s chart from the astrotheme website. No birth time but a late Pisces Moon.

There was some discussion on my Facebook Timeline of how could this fighter be a Pisces Moon but I believe it 100% (Pisces can hurt you, like any other sign. Trust me on this).

She is a legend, before the age of Saturn Return, and is fierce as fire Mars in Aries, but anyone with eyes and intuition can see, can feel, this woman warrior’s vulnerable emotional core underneath the Aquarian Sun steel. (Interesting too to note that Jillian Michaels is also Aquarius Sun.)

Aquarians are not touchy feely in my experience. In fact, they may run from that kind of thing (emotions they perceive as “too much”) UNLESS other chart factors indicate a gooey center (like Rousey’s chart does — Moon JUPITER in Pisces, expanding the emotional center).

And even then they may run – because their emotions are so deep as to be unfathomable.

"ronda rousey astrology" So she’s a young legend already (and yes I got my Pay-Per-View last night and I’m glad I did, to watch her defeat Bethe Correia) and I see the next couple years are pivotal for her:

her SATURN RETURN is coming

What will change for Ronda Rousey? What will she leave behind?

Saturn Return is a fierce as fire reality check, rite of passage. We grow up. She can’t, she won’t continue along the SAME path. Similar maybe but not same. Saturn is our WORK, karma. Fate.

Perhaps after her SR she will do more film and less fighting. Think back to YOUR Saturn Return. Life before and after.

She also has her Venus in Sagittarius (running from love, runaway love) so she’ll have both i.e. Saturn conjunct her Venus and her Saturn Return — in the same time frame — and Saturn squaring her Moon Jupiter.

"ronda rousey astrology" I don’t want to make any predictions here i.e. but if your mother is alive and Saturn is square your Moon…. well, this a FEMALE TRANSIT. Anything aspecting your Moon is a female transit, possibly affecting the women in your life (family or not), including your opponents!

The September New Moon Eclipse in Virgo will oppose her Pisces Moon Jupiter. Damn I wish we had a birth time so I could see the Houses but suffice to say that Moon vs. Moon = more fighting with women :)

She’s also going to be under a Jupiter opposition. Her star will continue to rise and yes there is much more to say because her chart will be getting direct hits from all the new mutable placements (Nodes, Jupiter, Saturn) but I will stop here for now. We can go more in depth later if you like :)

I’m so in love Ronda Rousey and fascinated by Mixed Martial Arts in general — competition, bravery, drama — so I will definitely write more on this topic…


I ended Yesterday’s Blog Post on Trauma & Healing and Saturn in Sagittarius like this:

Redemption. True Healing.
To really be DONE with the past.
How to get there? How to do this?


Saturn going direct will help. You need a plan.

"saturn in sagittarius" And from my Facebook:

Sagittarius tells stories. Saturn rules the dead.
(Free-associating here.) Stories of the Dead. Dead Stories.
YOUR DEATH. And your story of coming back to life.
I have one, I have two, I have three, I have four and more.
It’s not just Pluto that rules death. Saturn does too. So.
Saturn in Sagittarius.
The story of what nearly killed you but did not. That’s Saturn.
You wanted to die. But here you are reading this. Kind of amazing right?
And I’m thinking about the upcoming Saturn in Sag square Jupiter in Virgo.
What a funny transit right? Saturn in Sag puts on the brakes. Jupiter expands your tunnel vision. Going nowhere fast.
The careful telling of the beautifully meticulous STORY. There has to be a story here.
The square is going to push you push you push you.

Part of your Cure for Pain is to tell your story. That’s Thing One.
Thing Two is to rid yourself of all shame.

"venus opposition pluto"Someone left this amazing comment on my blog post yesterday. I couldn’t have said it better myself (although was trying to — on my blog).

If anyone feels powerless and terrified, revenge, rage and hatred are the only way to climb back from the darkness. Religions and “be positive” movement by demonising strong negative emotions only guilt trip the victims of abuse back into powerlessness.


And now that Saturn is direct again, we can plan. And write. Write write write write. Even the non-writers reading this :) Saturn is structure. Sagittarius (as I wrote above) is the storyteller. And the story. Isn’t it time you told yours? 

Hmm maybe it’s time for me to return to my Writing Workshop idea which I had to put on hold this spring (I was too sick to do it). I’m also thrilled to finally meet a new poet friend of mine. We have talked about collaboration and now finally this fall she will be in my city.

The mutable mess of 2016 (Nodes in Virgo/Pisces, Jupiter in Virgo, Saturn in Sagittarius, no outer planets in Gemini so life gets extra interesting for THEM, and let’s not forget Neptune and Chiron in Pisces) IS going to make us all feel a bit scattered BUT I think we’re going to have far more fun overall.

To be continued…

Notes On Not Being A Medium

"jupiter square pluto"I do not market myself as medium, but sometimes clients do ask about loved ones who have passed on and this happened today.
A young woman asking about her brother.

In her words:

I felt my brother was helping me through everything for a long time (he died 4 years ago) and then recently I feel like he’s disappeared. 

And this is what my cards told me:

He may have crossed a threshold that he wasn’t able to before. 

I’m asking if the brother is around you and what I get is that he is inside you, so to speak.
He’s more fused with you now than before, but you are on the same page.
I am trying to find the words to explain it but it’s as though he IS here supporting you but you are moving in tandem
whereas before it was separate. Now he’s more integrated IN YOU.
His soul/spirit/personality moves WITH YOU rather than talks to YOU.
See the difference?
It’s subtle but not subtle at all. A different energy.
I don’t see any separation at all. In fact it’s more united.

She wondered if it made sense that she could no longer hear him.

The voice is inside you now. Think of it as NO separation. 
So it will “sound” like your voice. It’s fused, totally fused energy. 

Before it was a very CLEAR distinction,like you could ask a question and get an answer!
Now the answer comes through YOUR mind so you think it’s “just you” but really he’s been integrated. 
You need not think he’s gone. He’ll never be gone. 

Have you experienced something similar?

Love, MP

I have some new readings packages listed on my site. These are for my “frequent flyers.”
Great for you because they include plenty of bonus minutes. Great for me because I love a chunk of change all at once (natal Uranus in my 2nd). 

Single sessions available as always. 

Saturn And The Patience Of Job

"saturn in the 2nd house"I was digging through the Archives, looking for a post on Venus in Leo and I found this instead :)


Saturn transits feel like someone’s turned out the light. From inside. Or maybe it’s just a another kind of light that you’re becoming. Maybe you’re a candle now or a pilot light that has to be continually re-lit because the flame keeps going.

Saturn transits force you to slow down and this slowing down is actually helpful, useful, even though you may feel helpless or without help.

Pushing will do no good so you may as well stop pushing and I hope I can take my own advice here.

It’s like this: say, God forbid, your house burns down and you’re sitting among the ruin, and what you want to do more than anything is stand up and begin. Just stand up. Begin fixing or call someone or… whatever frantic motion feels best and most reasonable. But you can’t. It’s just not time. Later it will be time. But not now. You can’t move. You’re not allowed to move. Can you imagine? Someone’s dying on the other side of the wall and you can do nothing.

Saturn is slow and Saturn teaches patience and Saturn stops. Stops usDelays, not denies(say the astrologers!).

Saturn transits teach you the patience of Job. You may suffer, you may suffer, you may suffer, you may suffer indignities great or small and then you must hold out your plate and ask for more, please. Still hungry.

My nature is impatient. Moon Pluto in the 1st House wants it yesterday, all problems solved, resolved, and perfect (Virgo), and yet I can live imperfectly for years.

Job was blessed, you know. At the end of that story. He is blessed. I wish somebody had written a part 2. Is he traumatized? Or does he just go on, happy that things got better, even better than before. Is there a part of him that always… looks back and wonders not whybut… Well, if you ever hang around traumatized people, you’ll know what I’m asking. They get a look on their face when they disappear, when they return to that time and place, and they can’t believe they got through it. I know that feeling. And a part of them is likely still back there. It didn’t make the journey to the present. It can take years to become one piece. One peace.

Don’t try to fight the transit. Follow it down. Not to where you can’t move at all, but… respect it. And maybe no one will understand why you need to do what you need to do, but you’ll know. You’ll know the difference.

What is this wasteland? It is your life.

The World’s Gone Retro(grade)! Mercury, Mars, And Saturn

"mercury retrograde"

Let’s see…

Saturn retrograde.

Mars retrograde.

Mercury retrograde!

Here’s my latest Mars retrograde story.

Y’all know I joined a gym when Mars was direct and entered my 1st House.

I slowed down a little shortly after the retrograde began but now I’m back in the swing of things and recently bought new sneakers! Asics :) Awesome awesome shoe (and no I don’t work for them.)

I realized that my bounce wasn’t so bouncy anymore and suddenly realized the shoe was the problem. And why they make good shoes so ugly for women is beyond me but that’s another story. WHY must my amazing shoes have this gross pink slime trimming on them? It was grody pink or garish blue.

Anyway, the shoes are great and I had a great treadmill time yesterday and I realized today, while on the train that Mercury retrograde is not only…




it’s also….. (drumroll please!)


I replaced what was no longer working. I replaced my SHOES. And all y’all who are getting another Saturn Return hit (hello Saturn in Libra peeps!) understand what I’m talking about when I talk about Saturn removing what no longer WORKS.

So. Tell us. What are you replacing for Mars retrograde? What are you replacing for Saturn retrograde? For Mercury retrograde?

Mercury Rx: the old ways of communicating no longer work.

Mars Rx: how are you abusing your energy instead of care-taking it.

Saturn Rx: how do you want to do relationship now that you realize all the previous ones have sucked the big one.


Not that you didn’t love. You did. But it wasn’t enough. Saturn in Libra is about RELATIONship. Relating. To others. Saturn creates limits. Boundaries. Pull your shit IN.

So that’s your homework, my friends. Consider the retrogrades in your life and come back and tell us a thing or two. In any order. And feel free to digress :)


Interested in a reading? Please visit my friendly links on the left and know that phone readings are in my future! I’m not leaving email behind but adding in! I’m especially interested in helping folks navigate their tricky transits and from a spiritual perspective. Not that I’m not practical but my default setting is truly my North Node in Pisces in the 6th House of the every day.
