North Node into Gemini until 2022 - Adapt & Evolve

The big event this week, is the shifting of the Nodal axis from Cancer/Capricorn into Gemini/Sagittarius.  The Nodes of the moon mark our past and future (to put it very simply).  Where the transiting North Node goes, our collective evolution follows.  Whereas the South Node, speaks to what it's time to let go of, purge, release, evolve from. For each of us, this will take place on a specific axis (in two opposing houses) in our chart.  These areas of life will see changes over the 18 months that the Nodes travel through these areas.  These changes are highlighted by the eclipses that take place in those signs during that time.

The Nodes return to the same signs every 18 years.  The last time the North Node was in Gemini and South Node in Sagittarius was between October 2001 & April 2003.  Collectively, we experienced the Sars Virus (Seriously).  Think back to that time for clues about what themes may come up for you over these next 18 months.

Taurus New Moon - Catalyst for a Sustainable Future

The New Moon in Taurus is upon us. Like any New Moon, this is a new beginning.  Taurus, ruled by Venus, is a Fixed Earth Sign - about what's tangible and what sustains us.  It has to do with nature, agriculture, our food supply, our bodies, our financial and material resources, and the simple pleasures that we experience through our senses.  Taurus likes to take it slow and steady.  Change is not something Taurus generally loves.  But, this isn't a typical New Moon in Taurus. 

This Sun and Moon are in close contact with Uranus.  Whereas Taurus prefers the status quo,  Uranus wants to shake things up.  Taurus wants stable.  Uranus disrupts.  Taurus sees the here and now, Uranus has its eyes on the future. Uranus is also approaching a tense conversation with Saturn, who's currently in Aquarius.  Uranus catalyzes, Saturn stabilizes.  If we work with this energy proactively, challenges can be catalyzed into opportunities.

Capricorn - The Big Work at the Crossroads

Here we are in 2020, sitting at the Crossroads.  By now, we have a pretty solid idea of how the ongoing conversations between Saturn, Pluto, Jupiter are being reflected in the collective experience.  But, how is this playing out for each of us individually at this point?

This is big work.  It's difficult work.  In this video, I re-visit these themes and the life areas this massive transition is focussed on for each sign.

Venus in Gemini - An Extended Stay - Thinking About What We Value

This week the Sun enters the fixed earth sign of Taurus, drawing our focus to material resources, basic security needs, self-sustainability, and simple, sensual pleasures.
Mercury in Aries is testing our mental fortitude for the next few weeks. The biggest news is that Venus is now in Gemini, the mutable air sign that will also host the North Node beginning in early May.  Venus is beginning a new cycle in Gemini and will be in the sign for an extended stay as she will station retrograde on May 13th.

Over this transit we have the opportunity to think or rethink what we value, what and who is important to us, how we define beauty and pleasure.
Neptune in Pisces will cause some friction on and off over the course of this transit as Venus squares Neptune three times between early May and late July.

Libra Full Moon - Relating & Finding Balance amidst a Global Pandemic

The Full Moon in Libra happens on April 7-8, 2020 at 18 degrees.  This Full Moon will bring into focus the need for emotional balance, among other things.  Our close relationships are being illuminated at this time too.  Where are things out of balance and what can we do about it?  How can we foster relationships in times of Physical/Social Distancing? 

All of this is happening against the backdrop of Neptune who blurs the lines and is hard to contain, but also brings us higher wisdom and a connection to our fellow humans that goes beyond space and time.
