I want to talk to you about next week, but before I do that, I want to give you the important links!
Here is a link to my latest blog post on Patheos Pagan. I’m there with my own column every week.
Here is a link to the Facebook Invite about the SAW Tarot Workshop. Who is saw? Sequential Artists Workshop! Please check them out!
I will be doing a LOCAl Workshop this month but then also adapting the in-person workshops into on-line courses. I love working with artists and writers!
And in terms of readings and stuff 🙂 it’s business as usual in MoonPlutoLand with these TWO exceptions:
my reading and teaching bundles are $25 off until midnight tonight AND tomorrow is Mini-Moon Monday – $35 for 15 min Tarot by Facebook Messenger – one or two questions…
ABOUT NEXT WEEK:
I feel intensely that your focus will be better and basically it’s back to work.
Mercury goes direct and even though there is a “shadow period” for Mercury to move out of, in my humble opinion you will FEEL like you are back on track and you know what?
YOU MAY BE FEELING THIS ALREADY
even though Mercury will conjoin Uranus again! Mercury will be direct. Venus is direct. It’s this delayed Aries Season that I think has been, well, difficult for a lot of us. Next week also we have a Virgo Moon. You’re ready to move on from the April energies. Do you feel this? I do — even though I can’t believe May is around the corner (tomorrow, as I write this).
Something else is on my mind – before I tell you more about next week – and it’s about… discovering who YOU are as an astrologer. There are lots of astrologers with lots of ideas and they don’t need to accept you or to agree with you. In fact, they may be downright dismissive of what you do and how you do it. But I want to encourage you to keep doing and finding YOUR thing, astrologically, whether you read charts for others or just for yourself, for fun.
IN part this is why I have avoided “astrology world” — too much hairsplitting and competition and honestly what I do includes astrology of course but THERE IS MORE.
There will always be haters, even among the topic you love so much! Believe in yourself, in your vision. Community is a double-edged sword. YES I have three personal planets in the 11th house, Sun, Mercury, and Mars — in Cancer — but I also have a first house MoonPluto. I need community yes but my needs run far deeper than buddies or people of “like interest.” Moon Pluto has to go deep, deeper. Always.
Please don’t marry the cookbook. Please don’t fail to develop your system. Please don’t believe everything your teachers taught you, including me. Please don’t make your magick an aesthetic instead of YOUR LIFE.
Yes I am biased but it’s my blog. Of course I’m biased. My spiritual life is not marketing and some things aren’t for sale.
Sermon over 🙂
It’s an easy going week. Honestly.
Sun sextile Neptune on Wednesday (harmonious aspect) which is good for most spiritual and creative endeavors as long as you do the high side of determined Taurus and become a blockade for the right reason and purpose–
and Sun inconjuct Jupiter on Friday (less harmonious) but the inconjunct is a battle of the VENUS. Taurus and Libra 🙂
Keyword for the inconjunct is “adjustment” – you may want to check up on the Houses of your chart for more detail about this one but off the top of my head I’m thinking about the pleasure and comfort of Taurus having to accommodate others! Jupiter in LIBRA (the others). MY FOOD versus OUR LOVE 🙂
Next week is far more dynamic but “not bad” at all. Saturn is square Chiron today as well (it’s exact, with Saturn retrograde) and that feels kinda sloppy, edgy. Saturn can’t figure out what Chiron needs today (or is too bossy about it) and maybe today you can just “let it go.”
Sometimes we have to tell Saturn: LET IT GO.
I have a Moon Saturn trine in my natal chart and Saturn is the topmost planet in my chart in my 9th and I’m a teacher BUT I am not Saturn. At least I HOPE I do not patronize or silence others (which is low vibration Saturn and all too common).
Okay folks 🙂 please check out the links above. Stay in touch. Let me know if you want a mini reading for Mini-Moon Monday and I’ll see you soon.

Wow, I needed to hear your encouragement about pursuing astrology so much! I’ve been studying for years and only last September did I finally, like a lightening bolt to the brain, receive the inspiration for how I do readings! But it’s super intuitive and symbolic, and involves a lot of channeling, and so may not always adhere perfectly to traditional interpretations based on the individual. I have let so much self-doubt around what my astrological peers would think that I’ve stopped pursuing my inspiration completely, though the universe has not been letting me forget! Thank you for this message!!
you’re welcome xoxo
I’m feeling Mercury in Rx almost over already —I felt the shift today (Sunday), actually. Very good sermon! You ARE a great Teacher, I learned a lot from you, and I’ve always loved your methodology. Other than: I’ve heard about the NN coming into Leo, this looks auspicious…And other other than, Much Love always x
Em, thank you for your beautiful words
