Pay Attention to the Ripples :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for April 30th – May 6th

This week’s astrology is really boring to report on, to be honest. There are no major aspects occurring – not even an important lunar phase. Does that mean this week will be literally uneventful? On an individual level, I have no idea without knowing your chart. You could very well be receiving some significant personal transits.

At a global, cosmic level, however, there are a few minor transits, but overall, the week is pretty low-key. And really, that’s just fine with me! April delivered some pretty intense, pressurized astro with all those Capricorn and Aries squares, a tension-filled Mercury retrograde facing off with Saturn, Mars colliding into Saturn and Pluto (the three infamous malefics of the sky all in the same sign)… and then of course, that powerful Scorpio Full Moon yesterday (April 29th).

Pay attention to the ripples. Perhaps this week’s still waters offers an opportunity to process and integrate all those big shifts that may have begun in the last month or so. Perhaps it is an opportunity to relax into Taurus Season; steadily digesting life’s events while sipping tea in a comfy chair, surrounded by everything that makes you feel most safe, secure and grounded.

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

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”

Stretching, Reaching, Dancing into the Third Quarter Moon Phase :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for September 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]

The Sun, Mars, and Mercury are currently moving through Virgo, with Venus trailing behind, currently traveling through the final decan of Leo this week. Mid-NEXT week, for a period of approximately three days, we will have FOUR personal planets in Virgo (Sun, Mercury, Mars, Venus) – and at the time of the New Moon on September 20th, we will have the Moon in Virgo as well. It is relatively rare to have all the personal planets in the same sign at once. As I mentioned before, this is a very–Virgo Virgo season. Tis the season to get shit done.

However, Venus is letting us know that she is not done playing with fire yet, and she has plenty of lioness moves to make before the week is done. The North Node (the eclipse choreographer) also gets a great deal of action this week. It begins with receiving a friendly sextile from Jupiter, the great benefic planet, on MONDAY morning. This sextile will hold throughout the week while Venus interacts with it.

Late THURSDAY night (ADT) Venus will conjoin the North Node at 23° Leo, and then on FRIDAY, Venus will complete the sextile to Jupiter.

The Moon’s North Node speaks to our destiny, our evolutionary call, the stimulus of change – that place outside our comfort zone “where the MAGIC happens.” Sometimes the North Node can get activated in a way that feels jarring – as if we were suddenly yanked out of the familiar and safe, into foreign territory for which we have no map.

Grand Fire Trine & Full Moon in Scorpio :: Cosmic Weather Forecast for May 8th – May 14th

Okay, so this Mercury-Uranus in Aries conjunction that has been creating sparks since the last week of April? It is feeling pretty intense these days! Especially since Mercury turned Direct last Wednesday (May 3rd). This conjunction is all about CHANGE. Fast and furious change.

Does anyone else feel like their life is moving really quickly, on fast-forward mode? Are you struggling to keep up with the changes and fast-paced energy in your life? You are not alone!

That is the challenge of Uranus energy. Uranus is inherently disruptive. But change is also what propels us forward in life, toward our potential, and Uranus, the visionary, loves to do just that. The aspects this week are really quite something. If you are ready to embrace change, you could experience some really profound and positive breakthroughs in your life over the next couple weeks. In particular, be on the look out for important information coming to light, and surprising and unexpected news coming your way through communication with others.

For example, here are some life events that happened to people close to me within 48 hours of Mercury going Direct on Wednesday:

  • I contacted someone that I had abruptly stopped speaking to about 6 months ago, who unexpectedly showed up in my home city
  • A family member was offered an ideal mentorship opportunity within her field that she had been trying to secure for the last year in order to work toward a certification (this opportunity literally fell into her lap in an uncanny way)
  • A family member finally received an important diagnosis for a health concern that had been plaguing her for three years – she can now start addressing it
  • A family member made the tough decision to hand in her notice of resignation and end a three-year long job position in order to focus all her energy on her new business
  • A family member started an important clinical placement on Wednesday (with some trepidation) and was pleasantly surprised at how well it went as he stepped out of his comfort zone
  • A family friend received the date and time for a very crucial heart surgery the following week

And that was last week. This week the winds of change are blowing even stronger as the Lunar Nodes of destiny shift into new zodiac signs on Tuesday, and Uranus and Mercury make their third and final exact conjunction in Aries on Wednesday just before the intense and emotional Full Moon in Scorpio goes exact that night; a Full Moon which asks us to trust and surrender to the moment – to whatever and wherever life has brought us to.

Near the end of the week Mars in Gemini is pretty active; squaring Neptune on Thursday and then trining Jupiter on Friday. Perhaps Thursday we are feeling vulnerable, confused and indecisive in the wake of all this change, and then on Friday we see the way forward to success and we know how to achieve our goals?

Changes in our life often initiate both the beginning of something, and the end of something. This is part of the reason change is so difficult for humans to adapt to. It isn’t easy to let go of old ways of being in the world, even if we are being invited into an exciting new way of living. Do your best to stay grounded. Do what you can to reduce your stress and anxiety. And then open yourself up to whatever this week brings.

The Moon moves through Libra, Scorpio, and Sagittarius during the weekdays. The weekend then brings us the serious, stable earthy energy of a Moon-Saturn conjunction and of the Moon moving through Capricorn. This may feel sobering, but could also be a welcomed grounding after this whirlwind week.

On Thursday, Mercury (still closely conjunct Uranus in Aries) trines Saturn in Sagittarius, and on Sunday, it trines the North Node, newly in Leo. By doing so, Mercury is activating an exciting Grand Fire Trine between Uranus, Saturn, and the North Node – all in the late degrees of the three fire signs. In a Trine aspect, energy is flowing easily. There is tremendous support for whatever new endeavors and projects you launch in the next couple of weeks. This energy is both inspired and risk-taking, as well as being stable and hard-working with Saturn involved.

Don’t let this week blow you away! Those fierce winds are still picking up speed. They are clearing away all the debris to make room for new life, a new chapter.
