The transits are so intriguing this week. It’s an interesting line-up of aspects occurring all around the same time. These transits could express in a variety of different ways in your life, but I will try to capture their essence (check the houses activated in your chart to narrow it down further).
There are two, possibly three, noteworthy cosmic/life stories happening this week.
The first major story is the superior conjunction between Sun (identity, externalized purpose) and Mercury (thought, communication) occurring in Gemini, while nearly in an exact square to Neptune in Pisces (two mutable signs).

This week will chase Mars into Capricorn.
However, before it does so, on SATURDAY, Mars may propel us through a crisis of truth, faith and belief, in the final degrees of Sagittarius.
I will never underestimate the potency of the last degrees of a zodiac sign – particularly the 29th degree, called the anaretic degree (or crisis degree). These are areas of heightened tension that can provoke impulsive behavior and reactions, or correlate with a tricky decision and torturous second-guessing.
Sagittarius at its worst is a soap-box preacher pointing you to heaven, or to hell. As Mars’ volatility activates the sensitive final degrees of Sagittarius this week, while squaring Chiron in Pisces, we may be wondering what is true, and what is not. We may be engaged in an aggressive war of opinions. We may find ourselves misunderstood. We may face a challenge to our belief system, our faith and our hope. We may be struggling to trust in ourselves and find the confidence to launch something new. Continue reading “Don’t Mistake Rigidity for Strength :: Cosmic Weather for March 12th – 18th”
So… I totally procrastinated today and avoided what I was supposed to be working on by researching the astrology of the 10 Academy Award nominees for best actor/actress in a leading role… which is determined tonight in Los Angeles, California.
One of the Piscean associations that is rarely mentioned, is the sign’s symbolic resonance with the film industry. Pisces is the sign of illusion and fantasy so this is clearly a natural fit, right?
For example, movies spin magnificent, immersive stories that allow us to “escape” our everyday lives and be transported to another place, another time – as Pisces so loves to do. Movies also activate our brain’s mirror neurons by compelling us to deeply empathize and connect with the characters – a very Piscean quality. When the film’s characters laugh, we laugh. When they cry, we cry…
…If the acting is skillful, that is.
Earlier today I was thinking about the Academy Awards happening tonight, and it occurred to me that actors would likely benefit from having some strong Pisces or Neptunian aspects in their birth charts. Continue reading “The Piscean-Neptunian Signatures of the 2018 Academy Award Nominees”
The watery Piscean trend continues this week with 5 celestial bodies in the sign of the two fishes (Sun, Mercury, Venus, Neptune and Chiron). If you haven’t gotten enough of these deep feels, you’re in luck! There’s plenty more to come in the next 7 days.
The highlights of the week include the Full Moon in Virgo on WEDNESDAY, and the rare triple conjunction of Venus, Mercury and Chiron occurring at Venus’ exaltation degree in Pisces on SUNDAY – the same day that the Sun conjoins with Neptune.
Circle SUNDAY, March 4th on your calendar. This is a unique line-up of transits which could correlate with a deeply emotional relational event, or a significant internal shift (especially if you have personal planets or points in the late degrees of the mutable signs – Pisces, Virgo, Gemini, and Sagittarius).
As I mentioned earlier, my chart is Pisces-heavy with the Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter in Pisces, along with some strong Neptunian aspects. It is a little strange to see all the super emotional ‘Pisces Season’ posts all over my feed these days! I find I get a strong reaction to them. Like, seriously?! Pisces is really that emotional and sensitive? OMG… AM I THAT EMOTIONAL AND SENSITIVE?? Because honestly, as a Pisces native, I’m not sure life feels anymore emotionally intense (or confusing) for me than usual!

Today (MONDAY) Mars zaps the North Node with a friendly trine, giving us an energizing, motivating nudge toward manifesting our creative potential. From there on in, the major aspects of the week bring us buckets of Piscean vibes.
Pisces Season has arrived, as of yesterday when the Sun made the shift from Aquarius into the zodiac’s expansive ocean of being.
Pisces is on the cusp of my 8th House, containing my Sun, Mercury and Jupiter. As a result, I tend to be more aware of Pisces’ shadow side – both in myself and in others.

Hey there, welcome to the grey zone between eclipses.
We had our Leo Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on January 31st, and then on February 15th we will experience the second and final (New Moon) eclipse of this Eclipse Season.
I don’t like to hype up Eclipse Season too much since there is already enough of that out there – and it is something that happens twice a year, so we’ve all traversed this swirling vortex many times now. And yet, if the energy feels different to you and you have been feeling high-strung, anxious or just kinda “off” and not yourself since about mid-January (and increasingly so in the past week)… know that that is pretty common for this ~36 day time period (especially if either eclipse is directly activating a sensitive point or planet in your chart).

This week is strongly Mercurial. Mercury the messenger – the planet of thought and communication (the exchange and processing of information) – has center stage this week.
On WEDNESDAY, Mercury will conjoin with Pluto in Capricorn, perhaps echoing the symbolism of January 8th-9th when Venus and the Sun formed a triple conjunction with Pluto while sextiling Jupiter in Scorpio (an aspect that Mercury will recreate early THURSDAY).
Later on SUNDAY, the messenger of the sky will continue in the footsteps of the Sun and Venus by squaring Uranus (the sky’s liberator, with a jarring, unexpected edge) while sextiling Chiron (an area of wounding and hurt that yields gifts as we embrace its vulnerability).

Hi! The holidayz and year’s end have interrupted my posting routine and swept me up into a deeply reflective space (…Mars trine Neptune…?).
I survived 2017 and this recent “festive” time! I hope you did too ❤
The raw deets for the weather this week are in the image above – a bit delayed and the full interpretation is up to you this time!
We hit the 1st quarter moon mark yesterday. The Moon, still in Aries, is squaring the Sun in Capricorn.
This combo reminds me of Gary Veynerchuk – famous entrepreneur, CEO, author and public speaker. Check out his birthchart below…
I only have his birth date and no birth time, so I don’t know his rising and it’s possible his Moon is in Pisces, not Aries (if he was born early in the day). But I would bet $$$ that he has a 0 degree Aries Moon (often fearless trail blazers) AND a Capricorn rising – or if not, possibly Saturn on his MC.

While it’s true that emotions can be catalysts, prompting actions that can be beneficial or destructive, and while it’s true that sometimes the natural flow and balance of emotions can become stuck or disturbed for a variety of reasons, I believe that emotions in and of themselves, cannot be pathological. Emotions are an integral part of the embodied human experience and they serve a vital role in our efforts to survive and thrive.
The meaning that we cognitively assign to our emotions and the way we process and act on them, may cause us unnecessary suffering, but I do believe…
Your grief is not a virus. Your anger is not a sin. Your sadness is not a disease. Your fear is not a dysfunction. Continue reading “Uncomfortable Emotions are not Pathological :: Sun Trine Pluto & the Full Moon in Pisces”

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 July – the 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”
