Full Moon in Taurus — the article

On Oct. 31st at 10:49am EDTthe Full Moon in 8.5 degrees of Taurus becomes exact. If you are a Member of my online community, feel free to watch my video on the subject.

All Full Moons offer opportunities for us to see things in a new light — and they guide us away from polarization and division, toward balance and integration. Full Moons also illuminate the truth and consequences of our choices.

The Sun is in Scorpio and the Moon is in Taurus; not only that, we are also dealing here with a Moon/Uranus alignment in Taurus — and with two exalted Retrograde planets, that are slowing down to end their various Retrograde phases: Mercury in Libra and Mars in Aries. Their energy feels stronger inside of us — and because of the Retrograde component, this is an inner experience, an intuitive process.

You may recall that I talked a little about the Mercury Retrograde component in the last New Moon video and in my “Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio-Libra” webinar (which is still available for purchase until Oct. 27th, for those of you who are not yet Star Members).

Right now, you can also get it as a Bonus Gift when signing up for a 3-session Coaching-Healing package with me. The almost $90 discount for this Package and the Bonus gift is still available until Oct. 25th at midnight. If you want to hear more about this,
just email me: info@AstrologerCoach.com

We will also address the exalted Mars component in our next Forecasting Forum on Nov. 8th. Feel free to join us, if you would like to know how Mars’ inward journey since Sept. 9th will impact what comes next for you.

There is currently an Early Bird Special that is available until Nov. 5th! So feel free to take advantage of that, unless you are already a Star Member — you guys are automatically registered and will receive an email to join us live, the day before the live event, and the mp4-video recording within 24 hours of the live event.

That’s it for announcements and logistics, back to the Full Moon…

Let’s take a look at the Scorpio/Taurus polarity: This Full Moon has both a Taurus and a Scorpio spotlight — one spotlights our relationship to our physical body, what we value on the physical plane, and the planet we live on (Taurus) — while the other highlights our relationship to emotional authenticity, intimacy/sexuality, empowerment/disempowerment, death/rebirth, endings/beginnings (Scorpio) — it is asking us to recognize our deepest desires and truest motivations.

You can ask yourself with this Full Moon: What do I truly value? What deserves my attention, appreciation, and care? Which of my values stem from social conditioning? Which need to change?

At its best, Scorpio is associated with…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 6-11 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius, or Leo? If so, you are more affected by this month’s Full Moon. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

Super New Moon in Libra — the article

On Oct. 16th at 3:31pm EDT, the Moon aligns with the Sun in almost 24 degrees of Libra, beginning a new Moon cycle.

New Moons are introverted times when we go within to learn with what we wish to align ourselves for the next 28 days. This New Moon is also a SuperMoon. These occur when the Moon becomes either Full or New while at its closest distance to the Earth and are therefore more powerful.

This is the second of three Super New Moons in a row. They generate greater gravitational and electromagnetic forces and therefore increased effects on our physical, mental, and emotional bodies. This also facilitates greater shifts in consciousness.

With the New Moon in harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra, we are invited to focus on win-win situations, fair exchanges, and harmony (within our relationships and with our general environment). However, this New Moon chart has three oppositions and one T-Square.

The Focus Point of this T-Square is the Jupiter-Pluto-Saturn line up in Capricorn, which indicates that we are experiencing some stress or challenges around our long-term goals, obligations, and social structures or limitations in general. Click here to watch my New Moon video to learn more about this.

There are plenty of challenging aspects in this Super New Moon chart, and that might keep us off-balance — to say nothing of the Pluto and Mercury Station phases, that are still both intensified, Mercury in Scorpio (and having gone Retrograde on Oct. 13th), and then of course Mars in Aries is still in its Retrograde phase until Nov. 13th.

More about all those details in a moment…. I just want to mention quickly the latest webinar I recorded on Oct. 4th — we discussed the Mercury Station & Retrograde phase in Scorpio, and how it is connected to the Pluto Station in Capricorn and how all of this looks in relationship to our own Birth charts.

If you want to know how these planetary Stations are impacting you personally right now, click here and add the “Mercury Retrograde in ScorpioLibra webinar to your cart

Ok, let’s get back to the New Moon — and specifically, the Libra component of this New Moon chart…

All relationships begin with our relationship to ourselves — everything “out there” is a reflection of “in here”… Ideally speaking, interacting with another person is a co-creative, equal exchange — we must be centered within ourselves, yet also tuned into each other, all the while responding to the rhythm of life.

Here are some useful questions to ask yourself for this new Moon cycle: What does an “equal relationship” look like? Where is the balance point? What comes up for me when I hear the phrase “the art of relationship”?

As the seventh sign in the zodiac, Libra represents a major turning point, one that invites us to investigate ourselves through the lens of “the other” (by relating on a one-on-one level).

Anything we haven’t mastered from the six signs that precede Libra, we bring to all of our relationships, attracting people who mirror back to us our relationship with ourselves: Libra thus invites us to see all of our issues, resolve them, and become whole.

Ask yourself: What if harmony and peace were mine to create within me first?

The Libra energy encourages us to…

Here is a beautiful quote from a Newsletter I received. I already shared this on my Facebook page and on Instagram, but for those of you who haven’t seen it yet, please read it and share it with your friends and family, if it resonates:

“We encourage you to focus on solutions rather than battling problems. We encourage you to focus on supporting health and vitality, rather than battling illness. We encourage you to focus on the political ideals you love rather than focusing with vitriol on that which you hate. Your actions might look identical, but your energy, your emotions, and therefore what you attract, would be totally different…. The Sun doesn’t fight or hate the darkness of night, instead it loves to share its shine. You can’t get rid of an ideology you despise, but you can empower one you love. Stop the struggles with one another. Stop battling yourselves. Start instead empowering, enlivening, and focusing upon that which you wish to love and support, and even when you feel the need to battle something in your current world, do it with love for what you desire, for in that reality every soul will “win.” — Messages from Ann & the Angels, visionsofheaven.com

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 22-26 degrees of Libra, Aries, Capricorn or Cancer? If so, you may feel the effects of this Super New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (since the Sun rules Leo and the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle. Intentions are best set soon after the New Moon becomes exact, and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase — so this month, the best time to set intentions would be any time between 3:31pm and 6:11pm on Oct. 16th, or between 1:05am on Oct. 17th, and 3:31pm, Oct. 18th (New York-Time).

If you live outside the EDT timezone (i.e. US East Coast time), I recommend you join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on Twitter; I will be posting reminders to let you know when it is time to set your intentions 😉

Full Moon in Aries – article

On Oct. 1st, at 5:05pm EDT, the Sun opposes the Moon in 9 degrees of Ariesthe Moon’s entry into Aries on Sept. 30th in the late evening, starts the build up towards this Full Moon. The Moon in pioneering, fast-paced Aries makes an opposition to the Sun in harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra.

Generally, a Full Moon brings our attention to our “emotional body”, increasing our awareness of what has been suppressed or ignored. This is especially true for this particular Full Moon — for much of this month, we are invited to experiment with new perspectives on self-care, family, feeling at home (or feeling safe), and expanding the exploration of our emotional bodies. If you are a site Member, you may also want to watch my video on the subject here

The Aries/Libra polarity also directs our awareness to the roles we identify with in our various one-on-one relationships — and this Full Moon is thus a call to take action on those roles.

In particular, it brings the focus to healing issues around “independence”, so ask yourself: Where do I notice a wounding around assertiveness? How can I bring compassion to that wound? Do I need to be more accommodating? Less? Where have I been too independent? Too dependent? What roles or contracts need to be healed? Or at least accepted for what they are?

This also involves the balance of feminine and masculine energies within ourselves, our relationships, and our world. Ask: Where have these energies gone out of balance? What happens when there is too much masculine? Too much feminine?

On the day of the Full Moonthe Moon conjuncts Chiron in Aries; this has lots of potential for healing around the “mother archetype” and our past in general. We may feel more sensitive and insecure about what we identify with — and around our ability to be assertive.

Ask yourself: What are my sensitivities when it comes to self-identity? What limits me?What am I feeling most insecure about? What if this feeling was an invitation for self-compassion, self-acceptance, and self-nurturing? How might engaging with myself in that fashion bring me closer to myself? How might being accepting of myself despite (or even including) my self-doubt make me a more compassionate collaborator and ally?

The Sun in Libra quincunxes Uranus in Taurus. This aspect operates more on an internal level — an unexpected turn of events could leave us uneasy or unsettled. This could also indicate…

All of this is especially true for those of us with personal planets or points in 7-11 degrees of Aries, Libra, Capricorn or Cancer (the personal planets are the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars; personal points are the Ascendant or MC).

Super New Moon in Virgo – the article

On Sept. 17th at 7am EDT, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 25 degrees of Virgo, marking the beginning of a new Moon cycle. Feel free to click here and watch my New Moon video on the subject.

Not only is this the beginning of a new Moon cycle, it is also a “SuperMoon“; these occur when the Moon becomes either Full or New while at its closest distance to the Earth.

SuperMoons generate greater gravitational and electromagnetic forces and therefore increased effects on our physical, mental, and emotional bodies. This, in turn, facilitates greater shifts in consciousness.

This Super New Moon also has an abundance of planets in Earth signs, similar to the last Full Moon (that was exact on Sept. 2nd). The Moon & the Sun in Virgo, Jupiter, Pluto & Saturn in Capricorn, and Uranus in Taurus. This means that our physical & structural realities, and the sustainability of those realities, take the forefront on both the individual and collective levels.

Ask yourself: Is my current life — its form and how it’s set up structurally — sustainable as it is? What if “simplifying my life” supported my current structures?

There are also four stationing planets in this New Moon chart: Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto!

This means all four of these planet’s energies are exalted, making their vibrations louder — something is “in our face” in relation to these energies for the next month, demanding our attention and awareness. I will talk more about this below, but first let’s look at the Virgo energy of this Super New Moon:

Virgo provides an opportunity to learn about being of service — and what it might mean to strengthen our focus on improving our daily routines — getting organized, for example — and taking care of health matters.

This New Moon cycle will thus be a great time to begin new projects that demand attention to detail, list-making, and taking pride in “small” accomplishments. We might start a new health regimen, perhaps by paying close attention to our diet; we could also set up specific routines that help us manage our lives in constructive and mindful ways.

This cycle is all about handling the nitty-gritty details of our day-to-day life in an organized, step-by-step fashion, so we can free our minds of clutter. Where could you use more open space?

Things to watch out for…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 23-27 degrees of Virgo, Pisces, Gemini or Sagittarius? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle. Intentions are best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact — and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase.

So this month, the best and most potent time to set intentions would be between 7:00am and 7:42am on Sept. 17th; and then again from 2:56pm on Sept. 17th until 7:00am on Sept. 19th (New York-time).

If you live in a timezone other than EDT (that’s the US East Coast time zone), feel free to join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter. I will be posting reminders on Sept. 17th and 18th throughout the day, and on Sept. 19th in the morning, to let you know when it is time to set your intentions 😉

Full Moon in Pisces — article

On Sept. 2nd, at 1:22am EDT, the Sun opposes the Moon in 10 degrees of Pisces. The Moon in creative, free-flowing Pisces makes an opposition to the Sun in detail-oriented, practical Virgo. If you are already a Member of my online community, you may also want to watch my video on the subject: click here.

With this Full Moon, we are dealing with two stationing planets — Mars & Jupiter — both of which we will investigate in more detail during our upcoming Forecasting Forum on Aug. 30th. Jupiter in Capricorn is preparing to end its 4-month Retrograde phase on Sept. 12th, and is therefore exalted; Mars in Aries is preparing to start its 9-week Retrograde phase on Sept. 9th, and is also exalted.

We are getting ready to retrace our steps (Mars), and are looking for the moral high ground when it comes to our long-term goals or social structures (Jupiter). For a more in-depth interpretation of your own chart, feel free to get the Mars in Retrograde webinar here (unless you are already a Star Member — in that case, check your email, webinar was sent to you on Aug. 30th in the evening).

This Full Moon has six planets in Earth signs: The Sun & Mercury in Virgo, Uranus in Taurus, and Saturn, Pluto, and Jupiter in Capricorn. A heavy concentration in Earth signs focuses our attention on our relationship with our body, money, resources, and the Earth.

Now let’s first address this Full Moon’s polarities: The Virgo/Pisces polarity has to do with our ability to connect the head with the heart, logic with intuition, matter with spirit. So the question is: how do we integrate Pisces and Virgo?

This may seem a challenging question, given Virgo’s leaning toward detailed, analytical understanding, contrasted with Pisces’ call to open our heart and allow for all (including things that seem paradoxical to the mind). In fact, on an energetic level there is no separation, everything is interconnected — we need both left- and right-brain (the logical and the creative).

Ask yourself: What if nothing and no one were separate? Appearing to be different, yes, but not separate…

The mind acts like a filtering mechanism that helps us to focus and function more efficiently. Virgo analyzes, whereas Pisces feels, senses. Virgo seeks physical wholeness, Pisces reminds us of a greater wholeness — a spiritual wholeness — our interconnectedness with all of life, the allowing of all the mysteries of life.

To be at its best, Virgo aims for practical applications and to be of service, while Pisces learns to listen to inner/intuitive guidance above all else, using its imagination to bring love and light into this world, to sprinkle mystery fairy dust, and to create Paradise on Earth.

When these two archetypes are balanced within, we discern without judgment, serve with an open heart, and improve our daily lives without getting hung up on timing or perfectionism, bringing love and compassion to all of life’s apparent curveballs.

That said, let’s also talk about the shadow side of those signs, as we do with all Full Moons:  Virgo’s shadow side is…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 8-12 degrees of Pisces, Virgo, Gemini or Sagittarius? If so, you are more affected by this Full Moon — this is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

New Moon in Leo – the article

On Aug. 18th, at 10:42pm EDTthe Moon aligns with the Sun in 26.5 degree of Leo — in other words, the New Moon will be exact. To watch my New Moon video click here.

The New Moon in fun-loving, extroverted, expressive Leo has us looking for heartfelt experiences. It’s important for us to express ourselves, to learn about love — and in particular, to learn about how those things work together to help us create from the heart and from a place of joy.

Think about the keywords for this self-expressed fire sign: “proud, generous, hospitable, caring, warm, authoritative, active, open, fun-loving”… How could you live into those words?

Leo is ruled by the Sun, symbol of consciousness and the unique light we came to shine in this lifetime — this is what we were born to explore and express — so ask yourself: Where could I shine my unique light more brightly? What brings me joy? Not just in general… but in this very moment?

Leo also represents our creativity: there are as many ways to be creative and self-expressed as there are “selves” — indeed, we are all creators — we create with every thought, word, and action.

Creativity requires innocence, curiosity, courage, and play. To live it out, we must tap into the unique spark inside of us in a joyful way — and allow ourselves the freedom to make mistakes — creativity thrives on love and permission and is stifled by judgment and fear.

Take a moment to contact your “free inner child” — that place inside that is ready to play and create. What might encourage that inner child to come out and play? If you aren’t sure, there’s no need to guess: Try asking it gently and directly…

Mercury currently also moving through Leo, adding more weight to the Leo-energies; as Mercury closely aligns with the New Moon in Leo, it encourages us to…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 24-29 degrees of Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, or Scorpio? Or do your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer? This New Moon may feel stronger to you…

And last, but definitely not least: the New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle; the best time for the intention-setting process is soon after the New Moon becomes exact, and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase.

That means the best time to set intentions this month would be during the almost three hour period between 10:42pm on Aug. 18th and 1:38am on Aug. 19th — or during the next slot (which is much longer), between 4:20am on Aug. 19th and 10:42pm on Aug. 20th (as always, all times are in EDT — the New York timezone).

For more info about Setting Intentions, click here.

If you live in a timezone other than EDT (US East Coast-time), I recommend you join my Facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter, as I will be posting reminders on Aug. 18th, 19th and 20th to let you know when is the best time to set your intentions 😉

Full Moon in Aquarius — article

On Aug. 3rd, at 12pm EDTthe Full Moon becomes exact in almost 12 degrees of Aquarius. The Moon in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius opposes the Sun in fun-loving, expressive Leo. If you are already a Member of my online community, you can click here to watch my video about this Full Moon 😉

Uranus in Taurus (the modern ruler of Aquarius), is exalted at the time of this Full Moon, due to its station phase (it is preparing to go retrograde.) Uranus also squares the Full Moon polarity of Aquarius-Leo, while Mars in Aries squares the Jupiter/Pluto alignment in Capricorn at the time of the Full Moon. These are the major themes of this Full Moon chart and we will address them in detail in a moment.

We will also talk in more detail about both of these planetary patterns, in relationship to our own birth charts, in my next Forecasting Forum on Aug. 9th. Feel free to join us live, or register to get the mp4-video presentation of this webinar, to see how these transits are impacting you personally.

As always, Star Members are automatically registered, and if you are currently a Universal Member, stay tuned: I will talk more about this again towards the end of this article 😉

The Moon in Aquarius opposes the Sun in Leo; this highlights the power of our individual creativity and the exponential potency of collaboration. Each of us is invited to reclaim ourselves, and add our voice, heart, and hands to something that has meaning for us.

The invitation here is to dare to be different, and to remember how we are all part of a larger whole. The highest quest of Leo leads to authentic Self-expression: to embody our gifts, shine our light, and live our truth. The highest task of Aquarius, on the other hand, is the attainment of unity in diversity, where everyone’s uniqueness is honored and included.

When we align our head with our heart, we feel our interconnectedness with all of humanity, and we create and connect from love instead of fear. Given that Leo represents our individual self-expression and Aquarius our vision for humankind, a question is raised: How can we best achieve a balance between these two energies? Or perhaps even an integration?

For the next two weeks, we’ll be looking for answers to this question, as we might become more aware that something is out of alignment.

Even the brightest of Full Moons has a shadow side — so let’s take a look at the shadow of both signs involved in this Full Moon — and please note that the shadow side of any sign is usually not as comfortable to look at or easy to embrace.

As always with shadow aspects of ourselves, we need to beware of getting triggered and jumping to conclusions; we need to make sure we take time to respond rather than react.

By the way, if you are reading this before July 31st, you can still get a huge discount on my webinar with the same title: React vs. Respond. Click here for more info or to purchase

Back to the shadow sides of this Full Moon — let’s start with Leo’s shadow side:

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 10-14 degrees of Leo, Aquarius, Taurus or Scorpio? If so, you may feel the effects of this Full Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (since the Sun rules Leo and the Moon rules Cancer).

New Moon in Cancer — the article

On July 20th at 1:33pm EDT, the New Moon becomes exact in 28.5 degrees of Cancer; this is the beginning of a new Moon cycle, and it also ends Eclipse season. Yay! We have received our consciousness upgrades and can now move forward with any intentions we set in late June.

This is also the second New Moon in Cancer within a 4-week period. The last one, on June 20th, was a Solar Eclipse — and thus much more intense in nature than this one.

Cancer is the first water sign of the zodiac, as such, it relates to the development of the “emotional body” — so this Moon cycle will continue to amplify feelings, instincts and needs. Feel free to also watch my New Moon video on the subject.

Our feeling nature has been denied and suppressed for millennia, but we have begun to embrace it more fully — feelings are an essential source of information about our true needs — they are a dashboard that tells us what is healthy for us. When we don’t heed the information, we become dependent on others for validation and direction, or get lost in addictions and distractions.

With this second New Moon occurring in protective, introverted Cancer, we’ll continue to surround ourselves with quality and safety; we can expect anything connected to home, family, real-estate or childhood issues to be heightened in our awareness for the next four weeks.

Ask yourself: What does emotional maturity mean to me? How would I know if I had it?

With this New Moon we are dealing with a strong Saturn opposition to the New Moon, thus we might experience authoritarian or rigid attitudes — both toward and from others — and this could create some tension or oppositional behaviors.

As best you can, remain flexible and practice self-care, doing your best to take care of your emotional and physical body — that way, you’ll stay grounded in reality, and be less reactive.

Ask yourself: How could I be 5% more truthful to myself? How could I be 5% more self-responsible for my self-care? And for my responses to others?

To get a better sense on how to become more emotionally mature, check out my webinar: “React vs. Respond — Where in the chart can we learn about our emotional maturity?

Find out how you can support yourself and others on the path towards becoming an emotionally healthy, responding being. This webinar also includes a hand-out for all Moon-signs with coaching questions.

Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn – the article

On July 5th, at 12:44am EDT, the Moon opposes the Sun in 13.5 degrees of Capricorn — this is when the Lunar Eclipse becomes exact.

This Full Moon is actually the third of three Eclipses; the first one was a Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius on June 5th, followed by a Solar Eclipse in Cancer on June 22nd. Eclipses are always powerfully connected to the Moon Nodes and thus to our Soul’s Journey.

For all my Members: If you’d like to learn more about this month’s powerful Full Moon, click here to watch my Lunar Eclipse video

Lots of planets are involved in this powerful Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse chart — Saturn, Pluto, Jupiter, Uranus, Chiron, Mars, and Mercury — and all play an important role, so buckle up! We also have three planets that are stationing (and thus exalted) at the time of this Eclipse — Chiron, Neptune and Venus — indicating that something is in our face and needs our awareness, and we must pay attention to whatever comes up in connection with those energies. More details in a moment…

This Full Moon is also the last of the Eclipses in the Cancer/Capricorn polarity (they began in 2018). This  emphasizes that we must complete a journey related to balancing those two polarities and integrating them, both within ourselves and collectively. As such, this Eclipse offers a major reality check, showing us how far we’ve come since 2018.

On Jan. 6th, 2019, we had a Solar Eclipse in 15º of Capricorn, not far from the degree of this Lunar Eclipse; a process that we started in Jan. 2019 is now coming to fruition. Think back to that time and see what long-term goals got initiated back then: what results are you hoping to receive at this time?

Let’s take a look at those polarities: The Moon in practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn opposes the Sun in protective, feeling-oriented Cancer.

We have a heightened sense that something must be brought into balance and reintegrated; the balance in question is between the connection we have to our feelings and emotional needs, and our ability to feel emotionally connected to others (symbolized by Cancer), versus our outer obligations or material, practical goals out there in the world (Capricorn).

It’s important to realize that…

Rest, receive, and remember that this planet and everyone on it is engaged in an evolutionary process.

Powerful New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Cancer — article

On June 21st, at 2:41 am EDT, a powerful New Moon/Solar Eclipse in 0 degrees of Cancer becomes exact. This is the beginning of both a new Moon cycle and an Eclipse cycle — in fact, this is the second of three Eclipses within a four week period! I also recommend you watch my Solar Eclipse video on the subject.

And once again we are dealing with lots of exalted energies, this time, due to three planets switching directions within 4 days of the Eclipse: Mercury, Neptune & Venus. More about the specifics in regards to all of these planets in a bit….

But first, let’s talk about Eclipses: You can think of Eclipses as extra-powerful New and Full Moons; the Sun, Moon, and Earth line up in such a way that cosmic energies are intensified, fostering amplified shifts in consciousness and accelerating our evolution.

During a Solar Eclipse, the Moon blocks the light of the Sun, intensifying our connection to our emotional life. Eclipses reveal where we are ready to complete a major chapter and go to the next level. They help us remember our Soul path.

We talked about all three of the current Eclipses in more detail in relationship to our own birth charts during the webinar about the Eclipses  — and if you haven’t watched it yet, definitely check it out, here! 

Other than booking a reading with me, this is the maximum level of support I offer — and it’s *only $37* for this 120 minute webinar.

This Eclipse is especially powerful, as it happens in an exalted degree — and only 9 hours after the Summer Solstice! The Solstices are important twice-yearly turning points, energetic gateways for the summer or winter season, and often indicate a greater chance of a new beginning of some sort.

The Sun and Moon are both in Cancer — and, as always, they connect to one of the Moon Nodes during an Eclipse — in this case, the North Node.

North Node Eclipses help us explore an energy that promotes Soul-evolution. We have been experiencing Solar Eclipses in Cancer since July 2018, and this will be the third and final North Node Eclipse in Cancer until 2038.

As I mentioned earlier, Solar Eclipses are extra-powerful New Moons, they end one 19-year cycle and begin another. On June 21st, 2001, there was a Solar Eclipse at 0º10′ Cancer (very close to this one at 0º21’ Cancer) which was also connected to the North Node; given this similarity, we are likely to experience a resonance between now and that time — “resonant”, rather than identical — so think back to the summer of 2001 and ask yourself the following:

Were there any major endings back then? Beginnings? What was important? If the call now came to take those priorities to the next level, where would that next level find me?

In Cancer, this New Moon/Solar Eclipse highlights the importance of…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 0-5 degrees of Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, Libra, or 25-29 degrees of Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo, or Pisces? If so, you may feel the effects of this powerful New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

Setting Intentions for a Solar Eclipse is a little different from the regular monthly New Moon process — after all, we are setting them for the whole 6-month Eclipse cycle, rather than just the next 28 days.

Solar Eclipse Intentions are best done 48 hours after the Eclipse becomes exact — as we are downloading new templates at the time of an Eclipse, and the energies are quite intense, so we want to wait until it all settles down a little before setting our intentions… We also definitely do not want to do this during a Moon void of course.

There are two best and most potent times to set your Intentions for this Solar Eclipse: the first lasts less than an hour (40 minutes),  between 2:41am and 3:20am on June 23rd — and the second lasts for 17 hours, between 8:33am on June 23rd and 1:34am on June 24th (in US Eastern Time — i.e. the New York time zone).

Set powerful intentions — after all, they cover the next six months — and if possible, align them with the Cancer energy! If you live in a timezone other than EDT (US East Coast-time), and converting time zones isn’t your thing, I suggest joining my Facebook Fan-page and/or following me on Twitter, as I post reminders when it’s time to set your intentions 😉

While writing your intentions, ask yourself: What if I created a more authentic connection to my feeling-body? Might that improved connection just possibly help me better take care of my needs? How could I make my experience of “home” or “family” more nurturing? What might unfold if I decided to be 5% more caring with my “inner baby”? Could I give myself permission to feel all of my feelings? Then simply relax into them? Maybe even accept them as valid? Knowing that they are temporary, are simply moving through…

Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius — the article

On June 5th at 3:12pm EDT, a powerful Full Moon in 15.5 degrees of Sagittarius becomes exact; this powerful Full Moon is also a Lunar Eclipse — and as such, its energy is unusually intense.

The last Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius was on May 26th, 2002. Think back to that time: What happened then? What is possible now?

There is a lot to cover today with this Eclipse, as it is also connected to a mutable T-square — and Chiron connects with the Moon! If you are already a Memerb of my online community, and want to learn more about this month’s Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse, click here to watch my video.

This is the first Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius since the Moon Nodes have moved into Gemini/Sagittarius on May 5th (2020). And it is also the first of three Eclipses within the next 4 weeks. The Moon Nodes play a crucial role during Eclipses! Feel free to also check out my webinar on those Moon Nodes, here (if you haven’t seen it yet).

Let’s take a closer look at this Lunar Eclipse: The Moon in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius (which is aligned with the South Node) is making an opposition to the Sun in curious, quick-witted, versatile Gemini (which is aligned in turn with the North Node).

Lunar Eclipses direct our attention to whatever needs to be integrated and balanced on a collective and individual level over a longer period of time. Get ready for some big shifts in your life, especially around your relationship with your belief structures, and your ability to learn, stay adaptable, and use your day-to-day mind intelligently.

Our physical and emotional bodies strongly feel the intensity of it all. Just remember: Eclipses ultimately support a shift in consciousness and thus bring us closer to our Soul’s path.

We talked in more detail about all upcoming three Eclipses on May 31st — and how they impact our own birth charts. Feel free to get the mp4-video recording here (this webinar also includes access to the Lunar Eclipse video).

The Gemini/Sagittarius polarity has to do with our ability to connect thoughts and language with higher meaning or wider perspectives — in other words, logical, curious, and…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 10-21 degrees of Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo, Pisces? If so, you are more affected by this month’s Full Moon. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

New Moon in Gemini – article

On May 22nd at 1:39pm EDT, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 2 degrees of Gemini; this marks not only the beginning of a new Moon cycle, but also the beginning of Eclipse season, which lasts until July 20th. I also recommend you watch my New Moon video on the subject, here.

Eclipses are times of uncertainty, Uranian in nature, so anything could happen between now and July 20th. It is important to remember that Eclipses open a door to the next level of our Soul’s evolution.

As best as you can, stay both grounded and flexible — and don’t jump the gun for the next 8.5 weeks — if you feel compelled to do something, do your best to simply observe the urge. The exception would be something that just happens organically, but if you are ambivalent about a possible action, better hold off until Eclipse Season ends on July 20th.

Eclipses bring major endings and beginnings. As best you can, trust that whatever is leaving is making space for something better — the more willing we are to change, the easier it will be.

That said, projects and interactions that got underway prior to Eclipse season (i.e. before May 22nd) are another matter — don’t stop your life just because it is Eclipse season 😉

I will also talk about the upcoming three Eclipses in more detail in my next Forecasting Forum. If you want to know how these powerful Lunations are going to impact you personally, feel free to join us — we will apply what’s coming up to our own birth charts. The Forum is on May 31st at 11:30am EDT — for more info, click here

One major thing to note in this New Moon chart, is that we now have 4 planets in Retrograde motion — and three of them are still stationing and therefore exalted. Something is “in our face” in regards to the energies of Saturn, Jupiter and Venus — something is demanding our attention and awareness. I will talk more about all of this below, but first let’s look at the Gemini influence of this New Moon:

With the New Moon in Gemini for the next four weeks, we are asked to connect with others and share our little hearts out, because Gemini is the archetype of curiosity, communication in all its forms, and mental connections — it represents the development of language and intelligence, as well as our ability to adapt and relate to our immediate environment.

This is a “busy” energy focused on…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 0-4 degrees of Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo or Pisces?  If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly; this is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo, the Moon rules Cancer)

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle; this is best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact, and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase.

So, this month, any time between 1:39pm, on May 22nd and 7:09am, on May 24th would be best — please note that all times are given in the Eastern Daylight Timezone — the timezone New York City occupies.

Moon Nodes in Gemini-Sagittarius

On May 5th, 2020 very early in the morning, at 12:49am EDT, the Moon Nodes switched from Cancer/Capricorn to Gemini/Sagittarius; they will remain in those signs until January 2022! The last time the Moon Nodes were in these particular signs was back in October, 2001 – April 2003.

The transiting Moon Nodes show us what our Soul’s Journey currently requires on the collective and personal levels — let’s take a closer look at what this means:

The goal of the collective Soul’s journey is to balance and integrate two apparently opposite energies: our connection to information and communication (symbolized by Gemini), and our ability to see and go beyond the day-to-day, widen our perspective, and explore new paths while honoring our direct experience (linked to Sagittarius).

This will take looking closely at the balance between our mental processes and our quest for a larger truth or meaning.

This is also about being more conscious about our belief systems, perspectives, and attitudes towards life. It’s important to realize that the Sagittarian urge to “go beyond” is essential for our growth; in terms of balancing these energies, that same urge plays a crucial role in how we interact with others and share information (Gemini).

To get a more personal interpretation, we also need to take a look at the House placement of that Gemini/Sagittarius polarity in our own birth charts, as well as the signs involved… we cover the houses in a webinar (I will include a link at the end of this article).

In Gemini, the North Node invites us to make an effort to…

Super Full Moon in Scorpio – article

On May 7th, at 6:45am EDT, the Full Moon in almost 17.5 degrees of Scorpio becomes exact. The Moon in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio opposes the Sun in steady, peaceful Taurus. This is also another SuperMoon.

If you are currently a Member of my online community, click here to watch my video. You can also get access to this month’s Full Moon video, when you register for May 3rd’s Forecasting Forum: click here for more info.

There are many Station phases going on simultaneously this month, as a lot of planets are starting their Retrograde phases. Pluto, the ruler of Scorpio, was the first one to go retrograde, on April 25th — and its Station phase will still last until May 17th, which makes this planet more exalted until then.

Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn are exalted in the sky as well. All three of those planets will start their various Retrograde phases within three days of each other, between May 11th and May 14th. Since Venus rules Taurus, we have both planetary rulers of this Full Moon exalted at this time — a rare occasion 🙂 We will talk about this in more detail in a moment, but first….

This Full Moon shows us how far we have come, as well as what we must still release or transform, if we are to manifest what was begun at the time of the New Moon that occurred on April 22nd.

For the next two weeks, we seek the balance and integration of two polarities — and we are more aware that something needs to be brought into alignment. The balance in question is between our physical attachments, aversions, and connections — symbolized by Taurus— and our emotional attachments, aversions, and connections (Scorpio).

The time of the Full Moon is always more extroverted and emotional; this particular one invites us to let go of fears or disempowering behaviors, and thereby break through to the next level of our evolution, individually and collectively speaking.

So, here’s this Full Moon’s central question: As a society, are we living in alignment with our values, with what makes us happy and satisfied? As individuals? Do we feel empowered and emotionally fulfilled?

All right, let’s look at the signs involved in this polarity, beginning with Taurus: Taurus seeks…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 15-19 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, or Aquarius? If so, you are more affected by this month’s Full Moon. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

New Moon in Taurus — article 2020

On April 22nd, at 10:26pm EDTthe New Moon becomes exact in 3.5 degrees of Taurus. This marks the beginning of a new Moon cycle.

As best as you can, get really quiet, and see if you are getting any new messages or ideas. If you are, harvest them, and fold them into any intentions you set for the new Moon cycle — I will talk about this process later in the article, and I’ll even give you the very best and most potent times for doing so 🙂  Click here to watch my video on the subject.

This New Moon aligns with Uranus in Taurus, squares Saturn in Aquarius, semi-sextiles Neptune in Pisces, and trines the South Node in Capricorn.

So, as you can see, lots of planets and points connect to this New Moon. This paints a complex picture, with opportunity for change, an atmosphere of diversity, a need to redefine “old” structure, an extra effort to connect with our compassionate heart and our imagination, and a sense of knowing that all is well, all of the time.

But before we go into all of these aspects in more detail, let’s first talk about the sign of Taurus:

This New Moon in steady, peaceful Taurus places more focus on our interactions with the physical world — you could say that we seek a healthier relationship with “matter”, one in which we are neither too attached, nor too disconnected from things on the physical plane — for example, our bodies, resources (such as money), and the planet we co-inhabit.

We are powerfully reminded to….

Do you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 1-5 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo or Aquarius? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle. This is best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact — and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase. So this month, the best and most potent time to set intentions would be between 10:26pm on April 22nd  until 8:43pm on April 24th — all of those times are given in US East Coast-time.

Jupiter/Pluto alignment in Capricorn in 2020

On April 4th, a long-term Jupiter/Pluto alignment in almost 25 degrees of Capricorn becomes exact at 10:45pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect from March 11th on; it will remain strong until May 2nd.

This is the first Jupiter/Pluto alignment of the year. There will be two other ones throughout the year: on June 30th (24º), and Nov. 12th (almost 23º); these conjunctions start a new 13-year cycle.

Due to Pluto’s Station phase in April/May we may experience this aspect more intensely in April than at any other time this year.

The last two times these particular planets connected was in Dec. 2007, in 28º of Sagittarius, and in Dec. 1994, in 28º of Scorpio. The last of these cycles to occur in the sign of Capricorn began in Feb. 1771 and the one before that started in Jan. 1522 — note also that there are larger cycles within the smaller cycles.

Think back to Dec. 2007, and ask yourself: What “forced” me to look beyond my current understanding to a larger perspective so I could grow and evolve? In what ways did I need to take a deeper look at my belief systems at that time? How did I want to better myself? What situation in my life required a “rebirth”? How can I now take that to the next level?

This aspect invites us to see the bigger picture in our attempt to regain control over our collective experience. This will likely spark major revelations and reformations, as fundamental assumptions are challenged, hypocrisies exposed, and priorities reordered. Benefits may come now through those in authority or the government. It can also be a time of personal growth and expansion. This can also be…

What’s my biggest fear in connection with the area of life where this alignment is taking place in my birth chart? What’s being seeded this year — in connection with my own personal growth and my Soul Purpose — that will be looking to expand over the next 13 years? How might this be a new beginning for me?

We will also be talking about this aspect — in connection with our own Birth charts — in our upcoming Forecasting Forum on April 6th. Click here to register (if you are not already a Star Member).

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 22-28 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, or Libra? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Sagittarius or Scorpio (Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius; Pluto rules Scorpio)

Super Full Moon in Libra — article

On April 7th at 10:35pm EDT, the Full Moon becomes exact in almost 19 degrees of Libra. All Full Moons bring an opportunity for awareness and integration of the traits connected to the relevant Full Moon polarities, especially those that have been neglected or suppressed.

This Full Moon has heightened effects on us for two important reasons: first, it is another SuperMoon (i.e. the Moon is at its closest distance to the Earth); secondly, Pluto is exalted and conjunct Jupiter in Capricorn, and in a square aspect to the Full Moon! All of this increases emotionality and fosters larger shifts in consciousness.

There are lots of other aspects in this Full Moon chart as well, and we will address all of them in a moment; and if you are a Member of my online community, feel free to also watch my Full Moon video here

On Monday afternoon, April 6th, the Moon enters Libra; this starts the energetic build up towards the Full Moon — and 29 hours laterthe Sun in Aries opposes the Moon in Libra.

Ask yourself: How far have I come with the Intentions I set around March 24th’s New Moon? If I’m not where I’d like to be with those intentions, what new course might take me closer to my goals?

The Libra-Aries polarity highlights the spiritual dance between various polarities: individual drives or goals and one-on-one relationships, masculine and feminine, independence and collaboration. Whether we are single or partnered, we are all in relationship to someone — any one-on-one relationship counts here — business, personal, health-related, etc.

For the next two weeks, we seek…

Saturn in Aquarius until 2023

March 21st at 11:58pm EDT, Saturn changes signs from practical, cautious, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn to freedom-loving, forward-thinking and objective Aquarius, where it will journey until July 1st. This will be a preview of what’s to come in December of 2020, when Saturn makes its second move into Aquarius, this time until March 2023.

Saturn feels pretty comfortable in Aquarius, as it is the traditional ruler of this air-sign and therefore “co-rules” it together with Uranus (the modern ruler); it is inviting us to look for practical applications of group consciousness, our inventions, ideas, future visions, etc. This transit could also teach us that there is freedom and liberation in abiding by particular rules — but it’s best to avoid rigid thinking.

So, between now and July 1st, we are invited to…

All this is especially true if you are a Capricorn or Aquarius Sun- or Rising-sign. As a Capricorn, you will feel a greater need for a “cause” — let’s hope it’s a good one that benefits most of humanity 🙂 As an Aquarius, you will most likely feel a greater sense of responsibility, a need to be more realistic, serious, and mature, in the next 3.5 months.

New Moon in Aries — article

Early on March 24th, at 5:28am EDT, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 4 degrees of Aries. This marks the beginning of a new Moon cycle; anything brand-new started in the next two weeks has the chance to get off to a great start. Click here to watch my New Moon video on the subject.

The New Moon in fast-paced, enthusiastic, and courageous Aries asks us to connect to our personal goals and get very clear on what we want to create over the next 28 days. This is an action-oriented New Moon, with the focus on ourselves; we want to speed things up — it’s a “do now, think later” energy.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac; as such, it represents new beginnings, initiation, breaking new ground, birthing new forms. An Aries New Moon is thus an especially fertile time for seeding new projects and directions.

That said, we can’t know what will happen when we start something brand-new — something we have never done before — and this can stir up insecurities and nervousness, sometimes maybe plain fear, or even panic.

Aries and its ruling planet Mars, correspond with the quest to develop courage — not fearlessness, but the conscious choice to act in spite of fear — some call this the “Warrior Energy”.

One of the many ways we can demonstrate courage is to allow ourselves to be in the condition of “not knowing” or “beginners mind”; at these times, we are more present, and creative potential is heightened.

Ask yourself: Where could I bring a “beginner’s mind” to bear? Where do I need to let go of needing to know everything before I begin?

New Moon in Aries aligns with Chiron (the Wounded Healer); this presents an opportunity to share our individual approach toward gentler leadership, and inspire others to engage in a healing process around the masculine “yang” energy — to do some healing around…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 2-6 degrees of either Aries, Libra, Capricorn or Cancer? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some intentions for this month’s Moon cycle — this process is especially powerful with the New Moon in Aries — and as always, is best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact  (and definitely not during a Moon void of course)

So this month, we have almost 46 hours to set intentions: between 5:28am on March 24th and 3:16am on March 26th (as always, all times are EDT). For more info on setting New Moon Intentions click here.

Super Full Moon in Virgo — article

The next Full Moon will be “exact” on March 9th, at 1:48pm EDT, in 19.5 degrees of Virgo. This Full Moon has a heightened effect on us, as it is also a SuperMoon (i.e., the Moon is at its closest distance to the Earth); SuperMoons generate greater gravitational and electromagnetic pulls on our physical and emotional bodies — and pull more powerfully on our psyches too, increasing emotionality and fostering larger shifts in consciousness.

Ask yourself: How far have I come with the Intentions I set around Feb. 23rd’s New Moon? If I’m not where I’d like to be with those intentions, what new course might take me closer to my goals?

A Full Moon is always an opposition between the Moon and the Sun; during these oppositions, we seek balance, alignment and integration around two perspectives that seem like polar opposites. Very often, we experience this through our interactions with others, and since these interactions are also the pathway to resolution, relationships of all kinds are highlighted during Full Moons.

In this case, the Moon in Virgo opposes the Sun in Pisces (if you are already familiar with this polarity, feel free to skip ahead to the aspects involved in this Full Moon chart…)

Virgo seeks personal wholeness, while Pisces reminds us of a transcendent wholeness — our divinity and interconnectedness with all of life.

Virgo benefits from apprenticeship, whereas Pisces learns to trust inner guidance above all else — when balanced, we are able to discern without judgment, serve without obligation, and love all of creation, including ourselves.

Virgo analyzes, Pisces feels: We are invited to discern what’s real, so we can make healthier choices.

To find the balance between Virgo and Piscesask yourself:

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point, or personal planets in 17-22 degrees of Virgo, Pisces, Gemini, or Sagittarius? If so, this month’s Full Moon will affect you more; the same is true for those of us with our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

New Moon in Pisces – article

On Feb. 23rd, at 10:32am EST, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 4.5 degrees of Pisces; this marks the beginning of a new Moon cycle. Feel free to also watch my New Moon video on the subject. (will be posted by Feb.19th)

This New Moon chart has a lot of layers and we are definitely dealing with lots of feminine energies for the next four weeks: 4 planets in Pisces (including a Retrograde Mercury), 4 planets in Capricorn, and one planet in Taurus. That’s 9 out of 10 planets in feminine signs, and that doesn’t include the Moon Nodes, which are also in feminine signs (Cancer/Capricorn) 😉

As you can imagine, this invites us to focus on our inner processes, our ability to receive, our connection to intuition, and our desire to contribute to life from a heart centered and grounded place. Our emotional and physical bodies are giving us the information we need right now, to get connected to ourselves and the things we want to contribute out there in the world. If we listen carefully we will also understand much better what pace is required to accomplish things without overwhelming ourselves.

Since Neptune rules Pisces and Saturn rules Capricorn, these two planets play an important role in this New Moon chart. We will talk a little bit about them in a moment. But first, let’s talk about Pisces, to see what this New Moon is all about:

Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac. It connects us to our spiritual journey, as it represents a reunion with Source/God/the Universe. When at its highest vibration, Pisces unifies all dualities — it is completely aware of the oneness of all. It tells us there is a…

Do you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 2-7 degrees of Pisces, Virgo, Gemini or Sagittarius? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly for the next 28 days. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle. Intentions are best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact — and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase.

So this month, the best time to set intentions would be between 10:32am on Feb. 23rd and 9:12am on Feb. 25th (New York-time)

Full Moon in Leo — article

On Feb. 9th at 2:33am ESTthe Moon opposes the Sun in 20 degrees of Leo — and this month’s Full Moon becomes exact; relationships of all kinds are highlighted.

All Full Moons offer opportunities for us to see things in a new light; they also guide us away from polarization and division, toward balance and integration.

Ask yourself: How far have I come since setting Intentions back on January 24th’s New Moon?

With the Sun in Aquarius until Feb. 18th, we seek balance, being more aware than ever that something needs aligning; the balance in question is between the Aquarius-Leo polarity. As a Member of my online community, if you’d like to learn more about this month’s Full Moon, click here to watch my video.

Aquarius represents a unique vision and approach to life. The classic Aquarian vision is one of interconnected equality — paradoxically, we’re reminded at the same time that the power of unity lies in diversity. Leo, on the other hand, is all about our individual self-expression, creativity, our ability to actively connect to the heart, and our inner joy.

This Full Moon is our chance to make a more conscious effort to embrace, integrate, and explore the lighter/higher vibrations of Leo — a courageous, optimistic, and self-expressed sign.  Leo represents our capacity to love, and our willpower. It is the quest to live from our center, our core, our truth — with joy in our heart.

This Full Moon reminds us that everyone has the power to make a difference in the world (whether small or large), and when we join together, that power grows exponentially. Ask yourself: How could I best honor both my individual self-expression and my interconnectedness with the world? How am I adding my voice (in small ways and large)?

But first, as with all Full Moons, there’s a shadow side to be discussed — let’s take a look at the shadow of both signs involved in this Full Moon — and please note that the shadow side of any sign is usually not as comfortable to look at or easy to embrace.

Aquarius’s shadow side might show up as…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 18-22 degrees of Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, or Scorpio? If so, you may feel the effects of this Full Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer(the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

New Moon in Aquarius – article

On Friday, Jan. 24th at 4:42pm EST, a powerful New Moon in almost 4.5 degrees of Aquarius becomes exact; this is the beginning of a new Moon cycle.  I also recommend you watch my video on the subject.

This particular New Moon is also the end of Eclipse season; we have received our consciousness upgrades, and can now move forward with any intentions we set in late December.

With the New Moon in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius, we have our eye on the future. The highest, lightest vibration of Aquarius gives us the opportunity to see a clear vision for our life — and we are ready to make the relevant improvements.

Aquarius also deals with the power of ideals, technology, and inventions. We are interested in the collective focus on changing group consciousness.

At its best, Aquarius stands for equality and diversity, innovation and reform, collaboration and community; we strive for progress. The challenge here is to unite and transcend differences of gender, race, and cultural or religious backgrounds, rather than separate us from others, or ostracize those who are different from us.

To move even further into that higher, lighter Aquarian vibration, ask yourself the following questions: Where am I called to make a difference? What could I, as an individual, do for humanity? And how might “group consciousness” help humanity make progress? Where might I begin?

At a denser Aquarian vibration, we feel like…

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in 2-7 degrees of Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, or Scorpio? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly.

Now let’s talk “New Moon Intentions” 🙂 The New Moon is the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month’s Moon cycle; this is best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact, and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase.

So this month, the best time to set intentions would be any time between 4:42pm on Jan. 24th and 2:06pm on Jan. 25th — New York Time/US Eastern Time

If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast-time), and converting time zones isn’t your thing, I suggest joining my Facebook Fan-page and/or following me on Twitter. I will post reminders to let you know when it is time to set your New Moon intentions 😉

Announcement for Star & SuperStar Members for 2020!

The time has come for me to make some changes to my business, to make room for some changes coming in my life outside of business. I have started work on a book, and my priorities are shifting elsewhere as well: my husband and I were certified this week as Foster Parents, the first step on a journey to fostering a child with the long-term goal of adopting. We are doing our best to get ready for the huge shift of becoming first-time parents; since I am also in the process of writing my first book, one of the things that I needed to look at was my time commitment on a daily basis. The question I’ve been asking is “how I can make more space for raising a child, and writing my book, while still providing maximum value for you guys — my online community.

I took a long look at how members are using their memberships, and after several discussions with members and advisors, I’ve settled on the following:

Announcement for Star & SuperStar Members:

SuperStar Members: I have decided to suspend the SuperStar Membership, at least for now — at the end of 2020, I will revisit it, and decide whether to make the change permanent.

How will this work?

Yearly Members will be able to continue their Membership until the end of their term; at that point, they will be able to continue with a Yearly or Monthly Star Membership.

Monthly Members will receive one last monthly 25-minute Coaching-Healing session with me, and then will be transferred to the Star Membership level for the rest of 2020.

For the next three months (until April 12th, 2020), I will be offering a 30% discount on my 50-min. Coaching-Healing sessions to current active monthly SuperStar Members; you can either divide the 50 minutes into two 25-minute sessions, or use up the whole 50 minutes in a single session.

If you would like to make a more long-term commitment to yourself, I will be offering Coaching Packages at an even greater discount, also for the next three months. After that time, as (now) Star Members, you will be eligible for coaching discounts as discussed below.

Star Members will only see one slight change: as with my online courses, I will make my 50-minute Coaching-Healing sessions available at a 15% discount; if you’d like to commit to receiving longer-term support, Coaching Packages will be available at an even greater discount as long as you remain an active Star Member.

Again, please note that these discounts also apply to those of you whose membership was converted to Star from the SuperStar level (after April, 12th, 2020).

If your Membership is currently suspended & you are a monthly SuperStar Member:
You will be automatically moved to the monthly Star-level Membership; whenever you decide to re-activate your Membership, you will do so as a regular Star Member.

You should receive emails announcing your transfer to the Star Membership level, however you will remain suspended/paused until you decide to re-activate yourself via your Membership Portal (aka “My Account” 😉

I realize this may be a lot to take in — if you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out — in the meantime, I hope this table will make it all clearer:

As I hope you can see, I’ve done my best to use this as an opportunity to create greater value and flexibility for you, my most valued members — and if you have ideas on how I can do an even better job of that, I would love to hear your thoughts. Thank you, as always, for your continued membership of my online community, and I look forward to serving you throughout 2020 and beyond.

PS: All current SuperStar Members will also receive a huge discount on my book, once it’s been published. Star Members will receive discounts as well 😉

Saturn-Pluto alignment — article

On Jan. 12th at 11:59am EST, a Saturn/Pluto alignment in almost 23 degrees of Capricorn became exact. (we’ve been feeling the effects of this aspect since Dec. 5th, 2019; it will remain strong until Feb. 19th, 2020).

The last time we saw a Saturn-Pluto alignment was in November 1982, and then again in May-June, 1983; back then it was in a late degree of Libra, the time before then was in August 1947 in 13º of Leo — as you can see this is quite a long cycle — anywhere from 32 – 38 years, in fact.

It’s time to think seriously about what no longer works for us, both individually, and collectively; this is a time when dedication and commitment to goals runs high and we are more reliably and consistently productive. We derive satisfaction from a job well done, especially if we can readily find meaning in what we are doing — and are more able to concentrate, as we can see ourselves and our purpose very clearly, and also see that our persistence will pay off.

The invitation to adjust our expectations becomes obvious; any trials and tests that emerge now will nudge us onto the right path and challenge us to become stronger and more confident in our own abilities. Do your best to detox and de-stress.

Facing realities that we have conveniently avoided is definitely part of this transit. With any long-term cycle, you can set some intentions around what it is you would like to create, so ask yourself

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 20-26 degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Libra or Cancer? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Capricorn or Scorpio (Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn; Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio).
