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.

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.

Pholus in Capricorn Conjunct South Node - The Lid Comes Off

Recently, I was prompted to take a closer look at Pholus (Thanks to The Sky Priestess - link to her video below).  Lo and Behold, Pholus seems to have a lot to do with where we're at right now.  It was also very enlightening to look at Pholus in my own birthchart.

Pholus is a small, but powerful catalyst.  The one seemingly benign act that has profound consequences.

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.

Aries New Moon - Brave New World

The New Moon in Aries on March 24th marks the beginning of a whole new cycle.  It's the entry point of our new normal.  New Moons always mark new beginnings, but they are preceded by endings.

This New Moon in close conversation with Chiron, Black Moon Lilith and the Nodes, offers an opportunity for profound, albeit uncomfortable healing, as well as a challenge to acknowledge the past and embrace the future. We are the precipice of a Brave New World, and we can either go willingly or be dragged.
