The New MOON of May falls closely following the sacred pagan cross-quarter day of Beltane or May Day. This fire celebration of fertility and fun has been observed and ritualized for millennia. The eve of April 30, rolling into May 1 is considered to be the gateway into summertime in the northern hemisphere. The day considered to be the beginning of Summer in our modern era, Summer Solstice, is actually the peak of the season. You'll hear the word midsummer, and this is why; I
This is an unusual Full MOON; our second in LIBRA. The last Full MOON occurred at 00 degrees LIBRA, and this one falls at 29 degrees on April 19 at 4:12am PDT. LIBRA is a sign of duality, always needing the other, always seeking to achieve balance on the divine scales of life, and so somehow this double dose feels appropriate. We are all in relationship here on earth, to each other, to ourselves, and to life itself. There is never a point when we arrive at perfect balance and
New! Audio version available: Click here to listen Welcome to the AQUARIAN perspective: feeling like an outsider the way an anthropologist from another world might. AQUARIANS come from a place infused with higher, faster moving frequencies than are largely found on Earth. They are the futuristic alchemical thinkers bent on improving the lot for humanity, and though they may not understand humans' dense ways, they are fond of them... especially from a little bit of a distance.
Here we go into Eclipse #2 of 2019. While the New MOON solar eclipse on Jan 5 was all CAPRICORN, this Full MOON Lunar Eclipse brings in a LEO MOON/AQUA SUN tightly stitched into the CAP CANCER Nodal axis, square to URANUS, the Great Awakener. This is a volatile, electric, emotional combination. Eclipses are always a time between the worlds and they express themselves through our emotions as well as events in our lives. The lights are briefly out, it is not business as usual.
Winter Solstice is the culmination of the increasing night before the dawning of the light that will lead us back to Summer Solstice. It's where the SUN stands still for 3 days, and we assess our journey, contemplating how we will use the next half year cycle. It's the beginning of the CAPRICORN season, which is associated with the earth element, and the direction north. Here at the bottom of the year in the North, is where we can ground into the supportive physical wisdom of
December 6 at 11:21 pm PT is our last New MOON of 2018. It's new at 15 degrees SAGITTARIUS, close to JUPITER, tightly square to MARS and NEPTUNE in PISCES. SAG is our archetypal jaunty, vagabond-explorer who throws caution to the wind in search of adventure and fun. The SAG part of us needs excitement and meaning in our lives. It has the positive radiance of fire and the variable impulsivity of its mutable nature. SAGITTARIANS are incredibly charismatic and talented and hilar
Our MOON grows full at 9:39 pm PT on November 22 at zero degrees GEMINI opposite the zero degree SAGITTARIUS SUN conjunct JUPITER, on American Thanksgiving. Considering the Full MOON could fall anywhere from 0-30 degrees, the zero point is interesting. You know what else? The following 3 Full MOONS are also at zero degrees of their signs. This is unusual synchronicity. The entry degree of a sign is incredibly potent, as it is the birth point and contains all possibility. It i
The MOON is New on November 7 at 8:02am, West Coast time at 15 degrees SCORPIO, which makes it not only our New MOON, but also Lunar Halloween. We are still in SCORPIO time, which has been a colossal theme all year since JUPITER entered SCORPIO last October, but the dial has been turned way up to high since VENUS entered SCORPIO on September 9, and went retrograde on October 5. Now, we are about to have some massive shifts in the themes and tone of life. First off, this New
On October 26, Venus reaches the midpoint of her medicine journey. This takes place at 3 degrees SCORPIO as she conjuncts the heart of the SUN. The Sabian Symbol for this degree is A YOUTH HOLDING A LIGHTED CANDLE IN A DEVOTIONAL RITUAL GAINS A SENSE OF THE GREAT ‘OTHER WORLD’. This is the power of SCORPIO, sounding the depths with emotional echo-location, in the direction of healing and growth.

We have a NEW MOON in LIBRA on October 8 at 8:47pm PDT, at 15 degrees LIBRA, making significant contacts to Neptune and stationing PLUTO. NEW MOON in LIBRA October 8, 2018 8:47pm San Francisco, Ca VENUS, our lady of love and resources, has just stationed retrograde at 10 degrees SCORPIO on October 5. With VENUS ruling this NEW MOON, all signs point to this newly underway retrograde. It doesn't leave its station degree until October 12 meaning that this archetype is beaming do
