Venus & Mercury enter Aries; March 6th, 2018 ❤♀☿♈

“I will never forget your fire. I can’t wait to see what you do.”
Kiera Cass, Happily Ever After

Today, Venus and Mercury blaze into the realm of daredevil Aries and out of the dreamy purple haze of Pisces. Driven by the straight-shooting, fiery vibes of Mars, passion comes through loud and clear as the planet of logic and the planet of love transits bold and exciting Aries.

Desires are expressed spontaneously, enthusiastically, and directly. For lovebirds, old and new, this is great news as Agent Provocateur Aries can light our divine spark through sweet crushes and hot pursuits.

“Clever banter, inspired bursts of brilliance, shameless come-ons—yep, our exchanges will be charged with the Ram’s spirited dynamism. Friendships and flirtations can heat up quickly over the next few weeks.” -Astrotwins

Aries has a reputation as the reckless restless romantic, so flames tend to fizzle out as fast as they sizzle — especially if there isn’t a level of intensity and mystery involved.

When faced with opposition, these fired up planets can instigate hasty actions and provocative remarks.

Saturn in Capricorn; Dec. 19, 2017 – Mar. 21, 2020 ♑

Saturn leaves fiery Sagittarius today to focus its attention on the third Earth sign of the Zodiac. Saturn returns to Capricorn every 28-30 years, staying for about three years each time. Now as the rigid, ringed planet returns home to conservative Capricorn — the sign it rules — it will provide a double dose of its demands and pressures ensuring that we make the most of our time and talents.

Full Moon in Gemini; December 3, 2017 ♊

A cosmic pull occurs on Sunday, December 3rd at 10:47 AM ET between the Moon in Gemini, the realm of vivid mental curiosity and the Sun in Sagittarius, the seeker of universal and personal truth.

“The cosmic noise factor is amplified by Mercury turning retrograde the same day, leaving everyone a bit dazed and confused for the next three weeks. Also during this Full Moon, a blurry Moon-Neptune square plus a fuzzy Jupiter-Neptune trine magnify dreams, adding a wide-angle distortion filter to the picture; it’s almost impossible to see the truth even when it is staring back at you. This is a metaphysical showdown — facts vs. beliefs, spiritual vs. superficial, and clarity vs. illusion. Dancing with a myriad of dualities can be an entertaining and enlightening experience if emotional flexibility, mental agility, and a swift wit are always within reach.” -Rick Levine

New Moon in Taurus; April 26th, 2017❂♉

Early Wednesday, a New Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon align at 8:16 AM ET in the strong, sensual Earth sign of Taurus. After the exhilarating-yet-maddening Aries season, the Taurus Moon is reminding us to slow down. Breathe.

This exalted Taurus lunation is also ruled by Venus, our Goddess of beauty and pleasure. Our senses are being awakened to fall in love all over again with the things that make us feel good to look at, touch and taste. What do you love and value?

“The plantings of this New Moon have the potential to grow into tangible support and satisfaction. It also has an air of fatedness, of supposed-to-be, with the New Moon making a wide trine to the Virgo North Node of destiny. That contact is a benediction of sorts for the 18-month journey through Virgo the node is wrapping up, and the coming flourishing is what we’ve been working toward. And some of that could end up feeling like heaven on earth. With Venus in the waters of higher love, and their ruler Neptune offering assistance, divine or ecstatic experiences are certainly possible down here on Terra Firma.” -Sally Kirkland

With Mercury still in retrograde, it’s about laying the groundwork for action around mid-May when things won’t be as fuzzy. Also circle November 4th, the date of the corresponding Full Moon in Taurus. That’s when you’ll reap the fruits of your harvest.

Look for wherever Taurus lands in your birth chart. This is where fresh energy is being poured. If your birthday falls on April 26th, plus or minus five days, you’ll benefit the most from this New Moon. The same is true if you have a planet or point in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius around 6 degrees..

Light a candle; make a list. Reset intentions. xx

“You do not get what you want. You get what you believe.” -Kelley Rosano


New Moon in Capricorn; December 29, 2016❂♑

Early Thursday, a New Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon align in the Earth sign of Capricorn at 1:53 AM EST. This Capricorn New Moon hits the reset button on our dreams and ambitions, giving us a fresh start for the New Year.

With retrograde Mercury conjunct the New Moon, this marks a time where we can be making adjustments in our career goals and personal accomplishments; perhaps taking a look at how we use our power in the world and what may be inhibiting our success potentials.

Intuition is heightened with the lunation’s sextile to Mars and Neptune in Pisces, but the details of our plans now may be hidden, overlooked, or unclear.

“This new moon wants us to challenge ourselves. That’s what keeps the mission interesting, right? And it’s not just about winning the shiny gold star here, either. With alchemical Pluto and Mercury retrograde also in Capricorn, we need to set soul goals—ones that satisfy our deepest desires while bringing material rewards. Radical Uranus snaps out of a five-month retrograde the very same day, encouraging us to dream outside of the box.” -Astrotwins

Mercury Retrograde; Dec.19, 2016 – Jan. 8, 2017

By Mark Lerner

The kick-off campaign to this morning’s Mercury station and shift into reverse occurs about 90-minutes earlier when Mars enters Pisces (1:24AM) until January 27. Then the winged Messenger of the Gods planet halts its forward progress at 16 degrees of Capricorn (2:56AM) in a three-weekly cycle that will conclude on January 8.

These two somewhat ornery sky movements, combined with the Moon in Virgo making its monthly opposition to Neptune in Pisces (3:24AM) as well as Mercury zapping Mars via a frictional, 45-degree tie (5:32AM), reinforces the cosmic signal to be cautious, careful, and conservative across the board. Being reckless and foolish, in all fields of endeavor, is asking for trouble. Since the Messenger of the Gods planet has no motion right now, its archetypes are intensified far and wide.

Mercury Retrograde in Taurus; April 28 – May 22, 2016

by Amanda Painter

“Have you noticed anything going particularly awry, or any near misses that got your attention in the last couple days or so? I’m especially referring to anything that involves communication, travel, your electronic devices, or even interactions that have involved your body (and your responses to it).

Mercury stations retrograde in Taurus today, April 28, at about 1:20 pm EDT. It will remain in apparent retrograde motion until May 22. This means we’ve been in the ‘storm’ phase these last few days (and will be for a couple more); this is the phase of time around a planetary station when things can feel especially tricky.
