April Overview!

Happy Birthday Aries!

As we begin this month, we are still under the influence of Jupiter square Pluto! As discussed last month, this energy will be holding in the back ground thru August, when we have a third and final exact aspect. The task at hand in the weeks ahead is to sort through,(mentally and emotionally), the pile of of material, data, information, etc to determine what needs further examination, investigation and consideration going forward. This applies to us personally as well as politically and globally!

Jupiter, the biggest planet in the solar system, whose cosmic job is to know, expand and gain knowledge ….squaring Pluto, the smallest, yet powerful transformative energy, is most associated with secrets and hidden agendas……. the conversation is….what are you hiding…expose yourself!!!

Both of these planets have a way of doing things in their own grandiose fashion, so the result is lots of fireworks and energy being released into the Cosmos!  After this 3rd hit in early August, they won’t meet up again until May of 2023!

The takeaway here is this…..it’s about going beyond where you are, taking risks and moving away from your comfort zone, and living your life, thriving, expressing your true gifts and talents! Now is the time. Our planet needs us all to have the courage to change our personal agenda, and that of our country!


Key Dates and Events for April…

April 5th….Saturn stations retrograde at 28* Sagittarius until 8/25

While Saturn is retrograde is brings opportunities to revisit and rethink some very fundamental aspects of where you are in your life. This is the perfect time to take a look at where you have been, where you are today, and where you want to go! Best practice, look within as well as where you are today with realistic eyes! Saturn is the Great Teacher and has been in Sagittarius since late 2014. He will be leaving this sign at the end of the year….so, the opportunity is to take a good look at the last 2 years…..what you’ve tried, what is working, what needs to go, and what direction you are ready to embark!!

Good questions to ponder……

What does my Soul want for me at this time?

What is my purpose….direction….focus for the next phase of my life? ( Saturn rules our purpose!)

Look at the Long Range implications and impacts of the decisions you are now considering……..

(You have time….by August 25 plans and ideas will gel together)

April 9th…..Mercury stations RX at 5 * Taurus until 5/3

This is the second planet to retrograde this month ( the 3rd one being Pluto on the 20th) so we are being asked to slow down the pace! Avoid jumping into things too quickly! Conversations and interactions need to be thought out carefully before engaging. Thinking thru before hand what you want/need is the Best Practice! This applies to any decisive or important actions you must take during these 3 weeks!

Pointers for the RX period….

*Double check and follow up on all your communications….texts, emails, phone calls, meetings, travel….best to be overly thorough!

*  Misunderstandings can occur….be patient….don’t play the blame game!

*  Write appointments and list of To Dos DOWN…..you are apt to forget during this Merc RX

*  Back up all electronic devises….and Please….don’t purchase  any of these  at this time!

Best Practice during  a Mercury RX

* Good to reconnect with old friends and clients!

*You may discover new more realistic approaches to old problems.

*Solutions to problems could now work that once were not appropriate or ready to execute!

April 10th…..Full Moon in Libra-Aries @ 11:08 PM

This is quite an energetic  and potent Full Moon! It involves a T-square with Sun and Uranus in Aries, opposing the Moon and Jupiter in Libra,  all squaring Pluto in Capricorn! Yicks……tensions and energy will be high!

These are all dynamic power planets, each vying to win!

So….here’s what might come up…..

*Being stubborn or resistance to change or opposing views!

*Not listening to your inner voice/intuition and acting impulsively or carelessly!

*You may think you know what is best for you or another at this time, when , in fact, new information is trying to come through to you. Listen carefully before responding or making important decisions or taking non-revocable actions!!

*Trying to do to much….or pushing others to hard!

BEST PRACTICE for this Full Moon Energy….

*Be open in your stance and approach

*Try to find common ground on a topics. If you can’t, don’t give up…let it rest, and approach at a later date!

*Use mindfulness in your conversations….take the High Road! Try to mend bridges rather than tear them down!

*Be diplomatic and a mediator…..look for win win solutions!

*Practice RADICAL self care! Energy and conflicts will abound….work to stay centered!

And…a few questions to ask….

*Are my relationships and partnerships equally empowering and supportive?

*If not, what could be done to make them more so?

*Am I taking the extra step to build a bridge if the opening presents itself?

It will be an  intense few days….particularly since Mercury is adding to some of the confusion….

Pause…..Breathe ……..Pause……Breathe……

And….. know the more you strive for  all parties to win…..you win!!!


April 15th…..Venus goes direct!

Venus stationing now will add a positive vibe as it opens the way for more benevolent and compassionate feelings to permeate whatever else you’re involved in.

It becomes easier to combine your personal heart with the cosmic heart generating more tolerance and unconditional love!

 You may notice that others are feeling good too which makes this a great time for bridging differences and mending fences!
It would be good to set aside some time over the weekend to reflect upon what you have discovered the last 6 weeks during the Venus Rx phase.  YOU may find that your priorities have shifted as they relate to your personal Values, your relationships, what you love and where you would like to see improvement!

April 20….Pluto Stations Retrograde at 19 Capricorn until 9/8

Pluto is the planet that has the power to reveal your deepest fears, but also your precious buried and hidden treasures! And, when Retrograde, it reveals where these lie in your psyche while also providing the pathways, tools and courage to explore those very places. As you do , you will discover your untapped power and resources that can and will accelerate your growth and evolution!

During this time period, you may be sensing that something is wanting to emerge that is now ready to become known!Pay attention to anything that keeps presenting in some way!

Questions to ponder….

*Are there resources I”m not using?

*Am I holding back moving forward on a venture that might bring me greater abundance?

At the end of this Retro period, you will feel more empowered and renewed! The key is to follow the cosmic bread crumbs as well as your instincts and intuition, and trust the path, even if it is winding and difficult at times to see!

It will be revealed to you!

April 26th….New Moon in Taurus @ 6* at 5:17 AM

A New Moon, or New Beginning in the sign of Taurus of one of my favorites and is perfect time to plant seeds for abundance, beauty, self worth, your inner gifts and  and talents, and your ability to give and receive love! This is a beautifully aspected alignment, so Venus traits  are the themes that will be activated!

We are holding a beautiful New Moon Ceremony, crystal sound bath, and meditation on the 26th  at the AURA SHOP from 7 to 9 PM! Please come join us! If you can’t, be sure to follow the ceremony posted on the New Moon page….(which will be posted shortly!)


This month holds lots of energy, activity and changes……Slow down…..Stay Present….and follow the Cosmic Breadcrumbs!

          Stay Inspired……Connected…..Empowered!

                                                                                              Peace and Blessings

The urge for freedom of thought and movement is strong as some part of you seeks expression in New and Bold ways! The expansive nature and potential of Jupiter combined with the experimental, innovative, curious nature of Uranus sets the perfect stage for positive change!

  • Your loves from the past may re-appear…see if there is a completion that is needed!

March 9th….Mars moves into Taurus thru 4/21!

This is great news, Mars in this sign has us slow  down a bit and be more methodical and practical  in our actions, instead of just running from one project to the next without forethought and planning!

March 12….Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces

The emphasis for this highly energetic full moon is on how your incorporate your spiritual path into your daily life! It is a balance of Spiritual practice, and active service! Beware….. you will feel the approach of this Full Moon early in the week!

February Overview 2017

Happy Birthday Aquarius!

As we begin February in the sign of Aquarius, the powerful New Moon in Aquarius on Jan 27th is still highly activated! This energy  is calling us to expand our hearts and mind, and actively embrace humanitarian concerns! Attention to national and global issues are facing us all, reminding us we are indeed one family in the Cosmic scheme of things! During this time, our circles of friends and peers may expand to include new and intriguing people with whom we share mutual interest and concerns! The higher frequency of this sign is to find ways to build bridges rather than burn them! Group meditations and sending light to the collective can make a big difference. Thinking outside the box is an Aquarian trait that is quite useful at this time in our history! And remember….1 person sending light can effect 70,000 in the dark! (Power vs Force) We have a lot of work to do!!

As a historical side note….during the 60’s, the planet Pluto ( break it down) and Uranus ( break through to New Ways, freedom, individual rights) created an aspect called a conjunction( both in the same sign at the same degree) This aspect in Astrology is the strongest, and represents the beginning of a new cycle. Since these two planets move slowly thru the Cosmo’s, they are now at their first square, or point of tension and challenge. We are in a time that is a critical point in history! What we do now to assure what was started in the 60’s in regards to civil rights, gay rights, woman’s rights, African American rights is for the greatest good for all people! We are in a revolution, and what each one of us does to join the causes we believe in MAKES A DIFFERENCE!  Join a group, call your senator, write letters, and march peacefully! Now is the time to practice mindful resistance and change! We want to bring what was started in the 60’s to full integration!

Here are the important Astro aspects for February….

 Feb 6 – June 9th…..Jupiter, the planet of expansion and blessings, is turning retrograde!

*First and foremost, Jupiter magnifies everything else going on when it is strong as it is now. So, things can seem “bigger than life”!

*  Jupiter is in the sign of Libra, the sign that rules balance, harmony and relationships…so if you are feeling out of balance….now is the time to regain equilibrium.

*Watch out for overindulging…( food, social media, drinking!)

* Yield on things that don’t really matter

*Practice active listening

*Respect others opinions

*Allow yourself to be loved and supported, and do the same for others!

*Practice moderation

On a national scale, issues relating to inequality and what is fair and unjust are on the forefront. And, both Jupiter and Libra have rulership over law, courts, etc. While retrograde, any rulings that are either unethical, unpopular, or unjust, could be reversed or overturned at some point in the future. So, have heart and keep Marching….Peacefully!

Here is a quote from the Martin Luther King Jr Monument in DC

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to Justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly” Alabama 1963


Feb 10th…….. Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo at 4:33 PM

This month hold the first set of  2017 Eclipses! (The second set is in August!)

Eclipses are dramatic wild cards and some of the most powerful tools that the universe uses to get us to pay attention to areas in our life that need to change. They uproot us, surprise is, and get us moving. They shake us up so that we can move from one level of maturity to another, and to a higher plane very rapidly. Eclipse wants us to change, and change we do!

Eclipses usually arrive in pairs, and coincide with new moons and full moons, as solar and lunar respectively. They appear in a family of signs that are opposite each other on the horoscope wheel and occur every 5 and ½ months for 18 to 24 months, and at that point, your transformation in that set of signs will be complete. Once a family of signs is finished, it will not be back for 7 or 8 years.

In 2017 we have  2 sets of  Eclipses moving into the Signs of Leo and Aquarius and we end the series of Pisces and Virgo on Feb 25th.

Years that hold eclipses in your sun sign or rising sign will be vital for you and will trigger major turning points!

Full Moon Eclipse in Leo/Aquarius

This energy will place a greater focus on how we, as individuals, relate to and fit into the whole!  Under this Full Moon you may feel more social, creative, and inventive! There is a beautiful Fire Grand Trine associated with this Full Moon, so you may feel inspired, fired up, and excited about new ideas and plans.

And, full moons always seek to create balance, reveling that which is hidden to come to light, so pay very close attention to synchronicities and coincidences around this time…they are sure to bring important details to your decisions and plans!

And one last word about this Full Moon…the energy will be intense….so act with kindness and love….we all will be feeling the intensity here!  ( Your ceremony is posted on the full moon page!)

Feb 18th… March 19th….The Sun shifts into the Sign of Pisces!

Pisces is the last sign of the Zodiac, and so when the Sun is here each year it marks the end of our annual solar journey through the Zodiac. During these 30 days, you may experience  completions in your life while new areas of focus are beginning to setup wings, waiting to emerge in the solar new year, March 20th!

Feb 26….New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces + Mars Conjunction Uranus Opposite Jupiter!

This is going to be quite a potent day!  New Moons are activators, as is Mars, so this day is sure to bring an array of unexpected situations, and emotions!

It is the last Eclipse in Pisces…so something will end, and there will be a new beginning in the area where Pisces lives in your chart.  Mars, Jupiter, and Uranus also involved, it is going to feel intense! Pisces is the most mystical of the signs, asking us to seek inner counsel, reaching for our highest expression. Uranus is heading us in New Directions and Freedom, while Jupiter is asking for harmony and balance. The involvement of Mars, brings out anger and action…so rest assured, the energy this day will feel all over the board.

Though this can be a confusing time, you may feel invigorated, renewed and committed to a new path for your life! Courage, passion, and enthusiasm can be available in a big way! Releasing of the tension and holding on to the old ways can be quite invigorating and the perfect way to end the month and start  Fresh New Adventure! ( ceremony and details on the New Moon Page!)

Remember….it is each one individually that effects the collective…..what you do matters and makes a different!

Shine your light!!!



Peace and Blessings

The green light is on!                  ( ps…give it just a few more days to settle down before you go into major action or major purchases!)

January 12 Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn 3:37 AM ….Cardinal Grand Cross!

Full Moons occur when the Sun and Moon are in opposite signs. A full moon brings to light that which has been hidden, or needs to be illuminated in order to bring balance and harmony. If you are open and receptive, it can be a time of unification, discovery , reward and fulfillment. And, as a note, Full Moons always bring emotions to the surface…for everyone!

This is the First Full Moon in the New Year, and it is going to be quite potent! It involves 5 planets and creates a cardinal grand cross!  The planets in opposition are quite powerful, because they all want to win and be right.!

This energy  is sure to usher in a new wave of change sending us in new directions! It is our opportunity to release….really let go of the old ways and anything left over from 2016, and have the courage to step into a new direction!

And, with Jupiter and Uranus involved….expect the unexpected!

Emotions will be high….Best practice……

Breathe, pause, be patient before you take action or lash out at someone.

We are all feeling it!

Your spiritual practice and guidance is the IT factor so be sure to make it a priority!!!

( More details and your ceremony posted on the Full Moon Page!)

January 19th Sun moves into Aquarius!

Aquarius is ruled by the unpredictable planet Uranus….the Rouge of the Solar System! It is called this because its unpredictable behavior fits perfect with this sign as it asks us to Think outside the Box and to view life from a new perspective,considering things we hadn’t before. This solar influence also expands our hearts and minds, asking us to embrace humanitarian concerns and the global issues facing us in these times.  While the sun is in Aquarius (thru Feb18) we may feel more social, creative, inventive and curious! Our circle of friends may expand including new and intriguing peeps, with which you share common concerns or interests! To activate the highest energy of this sign, look at ways to  build bridges rather than burn them!  We need inclusion and unity now more than ever!

Best Practice….Get your Humanitarian On!!!!! Think Globally….Act Locally!!!

December Overview 2016

sag kagayaHappy Birthday Sagittarius!

I always love this time of the year…..for many reasons, but in particular, Sagittarius energy is so expansive, generous, and optimistic, it feels like a breath of fresh air! The Symbol of Sagittarius is the Archer, aiming his arrow high into the sky, striving for greater consciousness. During this time, we are asked to seek greater understanding,higher truths, and new perspectives that broaden our horizons.

                                    It is a month of renewing Faith!

And, as this year draws to an end, it is the perfect time to review what has been accomplished…the Good…the Bad…and the Ugly!…..and  set our sights for 2017!


As we gather with friends and family this month, REMEMBER the REAL meaning of the Holidays…….one love

Gratitude, Faith, Thanksgiving, Appreciation and Love!

Share it….Receive it….Give it!

cosmic-breath-of-lifeAs a special Cosmic Gift, we have an unusually long aspect ( good vibration energy) holding strong all month and into January! Saturn in Sagittarius is sextiling Jupiter in Libra! Sextiles are called the “opportunity aspect” and exert positive energy.

This is a beautiful Full moon and is one of the triggers activating the Jupiter Sextile Saturn dance happening in shawdow tangothe Sky all month!    Full Moons always seek to create balance (the Sun opposite the Moon) and illuminate that which has been hidden! The Moon in Gemini will bring focus to all  all forms of communication, how you receive and process it.The Sun in Sagittarius then forms opinions and beliefs about what is true or what could be old and outdated. The gift is to look at what no longer supports you, and let it go!

Best Practice….. choose the High Vibe of this Full Moon, and  LOOK at New Possibilities. Be WILLING to See and Know Higher Truths. ( more info and a FM ceremony will be posted on the full moon page!)

12.19 Mercury goes Retrograde in Capricorn December 19th thru Jan 8

mercThis is the 4th and final retrograde of the year, and the second one in Capricorn. We started 2016 with Mercury RX in Capricorn, and now we are ending with this same aspect! I like to think it is the Cosmos giving us a check and balance before we take off into 2017! Please do all the usual Merc Rx strategies, (plan ahead, back up computers, check and double check your travel plans for the holidays, and definitely shop early!) And, you may revisit issues that came up during January….did you take care of situations?  Is there something lingering that needs completion? The same opportunity may re-present….so take note and appropriate action. You get a second chance to re-adjust!! The very best way to work with  Mercury RX energy is to RE-connect with friends and family. RE-member the real reason for the holidays and celebrate love, connection, and Faith. Pay attention to synchronicities and the people you vibe with. This is the time to jot down  all your amazing ideas and ah-has, as it is not the best time to initiate moving forward into action. Better to regroup, relax, and renew! Some missing piece of information will present during this time that will make all the difference for your 2017!


12.19 Mars Moves into  Pisces thru January 27.Lake Wanaka, South Island, New Zealand.

Fiery Mars entering mystical and watery Pisces will slow things down! All the more reason to for getting prepared early for the Mercury Rx and the holidays You will not be in the mood to rush and push forward, complicating the Mercury Rx even more! Best Practice for this energy is to take time out to BE…. meditate, connect to your Higher Self, renew your faith, open up to compassion and love for self, family, friends and the world! Connect with nature, walk on the beach, go to the movies, be inspired, dream!!  A perfect energy to blend with the Saturn Jupiter Sextile!

12. 24  Saturn Trine Uranus

The influence of this aspect lasts a few weeks before and after and is great news as this is quite a powerful aspect! Trines help us bringlightbuld inhand two planetary energies together. Combined, these 2 planets can bridge our ideals with reality and work to bring dreams into manifestation! And, it will even empower the Sextile with Jupiter! We have 3 amazing planets working together in synastry just for us! Timing and synchronicities are key elements of how this transit manifests, so trust divine timing and pay close attention to coincidences and ah-ha moments. Now is the time to consider new pathways and directions! During this time your unique innovative ideas and solution can and will become reality!!!

12.25 Jupiter Opposite Uranus

This aspect can and will amplify whatever is going on! It is a positive energy that can bring lots of enthusiasm, optimism and hope for the future. Under this influence we want to grow and evolve is some significant and noticeable way!  It Fires us up to be all that we can be! Here are a few great questions to ask yourself…..
