Ultrasonic :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for April 9th – 15th

The astro of the past 1.5+ weeks or so, has been dense, heavy, burdensome, and sometimes just downright challenging and discouraging. Like walking through thick mud. They’ve likely been important weeks for personal growth and development, and for overcoming challenges – but they’ve also likely been tough ones.

As the Venus trines to Saturn and then Mars ease us into this week, bringing flow to where there was previous stuckness, we may sense an invigorating fresh spring breeze on its way, ushering us toward an electrifying New Moon in Aries on SUNDAY.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for April 2nd – 8th

How was the weekend? Last week we had a Venus-Uranus conjunction in Aries (last WEDNESDAY), and then a Full Moon in Libra last SATURDAY, creating a tense 5-planet T-square with Mars and Saturn as the third leg / apex.

Close relationships may have been feeling under fire.

One thing I forgot to mention with Venus conjunct Uranus (in Aries) is that in addition to its associations with the unexpected, the unusual, the unconventional, the new and exciting… this conjunction can also correlate with times of conflict between people we are close with. Venus brings in the relational factor, whereas Uranus (and Mars-ruled Aries) are symbolic energies that seek to liberate and differentiate the individual at all cost.

The Beauty of Wilted Flowers :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for December 11th – 17th

[Hi! Did you know that you could receive these posts conveniently in your inbox? To receive my posts by email, subscribe to Lilith Rebellion email updates]

As of today (MONDAY), Saturn is now at the 29th degree, the final Anaretic degree, of Sagittarius . The countdown to Saturn’s ingress into Capricorn on December 19th/20th continues! Just over a week remains (…between now and the end of my Saturn Return, hallelujah).

Here at the 29th degree – the degree on which Mercury pivoted and first began its retrograde – Saturn in Sag is scrutinizing, probing, examining, and bringing a serious sense of urgency to our actions and big decisions.

What is your Truth? Are you in alignment with it? Continue reading “The Beauty of Wilted Flowers :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for December 11th – 17th”

The Saturn-Mercury Conjunction of the Last Two Weeks :: How is it Showing Up in Your Life?

In my last post I said that Mercury hates going slowly. That was an exaggeration. However, I think it could be true to say that the symbolism of Mercury – as an archetypal projection of our current societyvalues fast and devalues slow.

Mercury Retrogrades harness the gifts of Slowness. They provide us with an opportunity to shift into another way of thinking, processing, and communicating. I always find Mercury Retrogrades magical, even when they are at their most difficult. New insights emerge, important conversations occur, synchronicity abounds, and breakthroughs happen. The past whispers into the present, re-weaving life threads together in new ways. Continue reading “The Saturn-Mercury Conjunction of the Last Two Weeks :: How is it Showing Up in Your Life?”

Even When at its Most Dreary, Our World Retains a Glimmer of Magic :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for December 4th – 10th

Have you rebounded from that doozy of a weekend? Everyone I know, including myself, spent most of it in bed or finding other various ways to escape conscious awareness of time. Most of the weekend slipped down a rabbit hole – otherwise known as Mercury Stationing Retrograde and a Full Moon in Gemini squaring Neptune.

This week greets us with Chiron the asteroid, otherwise known as the wounded healer of the sky, turning Direct on TUESDAY after being retrograde since June 30th. Continue reading “Even When at its Most Dreary, Our World Retains a Glimmer of Magic :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for December 4th – 10th”

Full Moon in Gemini :: Accept & Integrate the Many Sides of Your Personality

Today (Sunday), the Full Moon occurs at 11 degrees Gemini, opposite the Sun in Sagittarius.

With the Full Moon’s ruler, Mercury, Stationing Retrograde at the 29th crisis-oriented degree of Sag, while the Sun and Moon tightly square Neptune… which is trining Jupiter… this one is a weird one for sure, which I described further in my weekly forecast. Don’t jump to any conclusions or make hasty decisions. Exercise patience with your possible lack of focus, energy and motivation this weekend.

In this post, I want to talk about the twin symbolism of Gemini and how that speaks to the multiple sub-personalities we all have. Continue reading “Full Moon in Gemini :: Accept & Integrate the Many Sides of Your Personality”

The Wandering Mind & Exercises of Attention :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for November 27th – December 3rd

[Hi! Did you know that you could receive these posts conveniently in your inbox? To receive my posts by email, subscribe to Lilith Rebellion email updates]

This week is a crescendo that builds toward the Full Moon in Gemini on SUNDAY (Dec. 3rd), which occurs simultaneously with Mercury (the Full Moon’s ruler) turning Retrograde for its final backward journey of the year. What a way to launch!

Mercury is the messenger of the sky, the Sun’s quick-footed sidekick that symbolizes thought, communication, short-distance travel, siblings, and any type of information-processing (which includes technology).

I always find it fascinating how Mercury Retrogrades often seem synchronically  timed and patterned to really bring our attention to a certain transit or cosmic event. Continue reading “The Wandering Mind & Exercises of Attention :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for November 27th – December 3rd”

New Moon in Scorpio :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for November 13th – 19th

[Hi! Did you know that you could receive these posts conveniently in your inbox? To receive my posts by email, subscribe to Lilith Rebellion email updates]

We’ve had a series of Jupiter conjunctions recently. Jupiter is renown as the “lucky” magical planet of blessings. When a planet forms a conjunction with Jupiter, the planet’s symbolism can inherit Jupiter’s gifts of expansion, luck, and success.

Within the last month we’ve had Mercury conjunct Jupiter! The Sun conjunct Jupiter! And now today (MONDAY), Venus conjunct Jupiter!

And yet… I always have to add a note of caution. I don’t mean to rain on anyone’s parade… but the Jupiter conjunctions are occurring in… Scorpio. And since Scorpio holds our deeply repressed material and all that we fear (along with profound truth and power), these typically joyful conjunctions with jovial Jupiter are… complex.

What does your Natal Mercury Placement say about your Communication Style?

I originally posted this on Instagram on Tuesday night, just before the New Moon in Virgo (occurring opposite Chiron). I believe this is the only time I have ever posted a series of astro “cookbook” style descriptions for each sign – and it might be the last time I do it! However, on Instagram, it became less about the post and more about the dialogue in the comments I think.

For those of you who are reading this post for the first time here, I’ll offer a disclaimer: For the same reasons I can’t bring myself to provide regular sign-by-sign horoscopes, most of the time I’m extremely reticent to offer sign by sign, planet by planet, generic piecemeal type interpretations because an individual’s natal chart holds an immense amount of information that is intricately woven together. A single placement can express itself in a dramatically different way then anticipated – which will make perfect sense once it is interpreted in light of the entire chart’s beautiful complexity. However, piecemeal descriptions are obviously really accessible, they can be fun to read, and they do often contain a seed of truth. I’ll let you decide for yourself though!

Mercury Stations Direct :: Reflective Prompts for Mercury’s Post-Retrograde Shadow Period

[Hi! Did you know that you could receive these posts conveniently in your inbox? To receive my posts by email, subscribe to Lilith Rebellion email updates]

Early this morning, three successive significant cosmic events occurred. The Sun in Virgo opposed Neptune in Pisces, Mars left Leo to enter Virgo, and Mercury has recently pivoted and turned Direct on the Eclipse Degree at 28 degrees Leo.

How are you feeling?

Take an inventory of what has transpired in your life between late Julythe beginning of Eclipse Season and the beginning of Mercury’s Pre-Retrograde Shadow period and today; the end of Mercury’s Retrograde and the end of an Eclipse Season which included a very potent Solar New Moon Total Eclipse in Leo on August 21st.

Take a moment to reflect on any changes or new developments that have occurred in the internal or external landscape of your life in the past month. Continue reading “Mercury Stations Direct :: Reflective Prompts for Mercury’s Post-Retrograde Shadow Period”
