Hello all. I have had such a tumultuous few weeks. Forgive me for no video last week. This week I will be providing the video in the morning, hopefully live. I have been a little under the weather and quite overwhelmed but I do intend on offering some insight because, well, I LOVE to do it. I get so aggravated and angry at myself when things are hard for this reason or that. But as a personal experience note - I am truly experiencing these transits in the way my Cancer Rising suggests (so check yours below!!!). I am working from home exclusively since around March 2020- the Mars and Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This week Mars will have made it all the way to its 3rd Quarter square from its Libra placement to Pluto in Capricorn and this is the last adjustment of the whole cycle. The Full Moon will complete a T-Square to this Mars square Pluto and that in nature is very tense and requires action. For me, a cancer rising, the full moon activates my 10th house of authority / career / public image / ambition as well as my 4th house of emotional security / home / family and 7th house of relationship. Both my partner and I have had a lot of external pressure from career and our responsibilities at home - this has inevitably put pressure on our relationship. We even work at home together. It has been a learning curve for us both. I am eternally grateful we are the type to ‘have it out’ 🤣with as much love as is available to us and move on and forward; it is a special type of relationship to be that workable. But that doesn’t exempt you from having to go through the working it out. The pressures we all face can feel insurmountable and it is in those moments we have to come back to ourselves. Who are you? Can you be your authentic self in relationship? What about, out there, in the world?
So, I am being kind to myself in my “career”. I can’t be everything everyone expects me to be but yet, don’t I owe people a little of what expectation I have conditioned them to have? Oooooh, what a dualistic world we live in. So here I am saying I’m looking forward to connecting with you tomorrow, a day later than normal, either live or when I put my video up on YouTube. I will explain these energies perhaps more clearly than I can do with words. I am convinced my face tells a whole story that couldn't be told in words! Here is the sabian symbol for the Full Moon as well as the week ahead and Full Moon themes by rising sign. Blessings and love.
ARIES 28º A LARGE AUDIENCE CONFRONTS THE PERFORMER WHO DISAPPOINTED ITS EXPECTATIONS.
KEYNOTE: The necessity for mature preparation and self-criticism.
We see here the tangible results of the situation evoked by the two preceding symbols. Great hopes, excited expectations cannot be sustained. The last symbol reveals the performer's state of consciousness; in this one he is actually made fully aware of having promised - to the many elements of his own personality as well as perhaps to other human beings - more than he was able to deliver. The issue is how to handle this situation. In one form or another, it is an often recurring situation in the life of an individual person. The manner in which it is met determines the individual's future possibilities of development and achievement.
This is the third stage of this five-fold sequence. What is implied here is the need to be more than "obsessed by potentiality" and subjectively involved in the use of the new powers. The objective results have to be considered, i.e. what this use will do. The individual is not alone concerned, for in a sense mankind as a whole will be affected. What is required, therefore, is an objective inclusiveness of the whole environment; thus a sense of RESPONSIBILITY for what one's actions will produce in people who have been made to expect significant results.
Mercury and Jupiter both turn direct today. The Moon moves into Aries and so this kicks off the Full Moon period which will happen on Wednesday morning 10/20. It will feel very high energy today - maybe even anxious or angsty for some. Keep in mind we are entering the fiery territory of the Full Moon this week! The Moon sextile’s Saturn in the late afternoon inviting us to be productive. But as the evening wears on, take care of your body this evening as the Moon conjoins Chiron in Aries and opposes Mercury in Libra which is moving very slowly at the moment. This type of energy can be quite exhausting because it truly is asking you to take action on the things that the Retrograde has illuminated over the last few weeks. This may just reflect the realizations and epiphanies but it sets the stage for a week that can be considered a big turning point.
The Full Moon is building to its height today and while on its climb it is making many important connections. In the morning the Moon is trining Venus in Sagittarius making for a passionate and pensive start to the day, and it will remain that way until early evening when it begins to sextile Jupiter and oppose Mars at the same time. This is very mixed energy. It could result in explosive emotions, but it could also result in a coming together. And perhaps former has to happen for the latter to occur! Either way the best way to sum this up is big feelings in regards to relationships, personal autonomy, and where both are headed in the future. This sets the stage for a choice to be made on the Full Moon. Jupiter helps us see the truth of the matter, the Moon in Aries wants to take action on our own desires and Mars in Libra is fighting for balance.
And what is that choice we are making today? Look no further than Pluto in Capricorn. What was going on in April of this year for you? That was a New Moon in Aries square Pluto and also sextile Jupiter in Aquarius. The similarities in energies of this is Full Moon in Aries square Pluto and loosely sextile Jupiter will complete this theme and be the last time we work on this specific energy for a long time. What do you believe to be true about yourself? What do you allow to have power over you. Are the scales balanced? Jupiter in Aquarius has assisted us with the birds eye view necessary to see the path forward and Pluto has shown us fundamental changes to the structure of our lives are in order if we want to show up fully and authentically as ourselves in the Aries part of our chart. Late afternoon the Moon moves into Taurus quickly bringing our emotional focus to how our values and comfort zones have been shifted and changed over the last two years as Uranus has been in Taurus.
The heightened and possibly intense energy doesn’t let up today as we awake with the Moon meeting Uranus in Taurus. I have observed these days as moments of Emotional Epiphany and an ability to make changes, and this is compounded by the fact Mars in Libra is squaring the planet of Transformation and Power, Pluto. Pluto is making his presence known this entire week. This is the closing square of a Mars Pluto cycle that began March 23rd 2020. Does that date ring a bell? Closing squares are the last adjustment of a phase and the theme here is our inner authority, boundaries, and the balance of power. The next Mars Pluto conjunction will be with Venus in March of next year and will start the last Mars Pluto conjunction in the Cardinal signs. This is in essence our last go round with Mars interaction with a Cardinal Pluto - saving a few squares and an opposition aspects into 2024 until 2067. It’s a big deal. Pay attention today. You may want to make some journal notes about this week.
The Moon is still in Taurus and it is squaring Jupiter in Aquarius and sextile Venus first thing in the morning. We may have big plans or ideas. With Venus in Sagittarius be cautious about overspending or overindulging over the weekend. This is the Sun’s last day in Libra but with the Moon trining Pluto there is likely to be some synthesizing happening today in regards to the events of the past week. Mercury also trines the Asteroid Goddess Ceres which will direct us to tune in intellectually to our what our needs are and how to relay them to others. Communication is key to relationships today. The Sun moves into Scorpio just before midnight Central time.
Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th
The weekend feels fairly quiet. The shift into Scorpio ushers in the energy of Samhain and Halloween. Scorpio season is the when we compost and transmute, in essence we get rid of the things that don’t serve us or that have run their course. Scorpio is ruled by Mars in Libra for the first few days of this Scorpio season and doesn’t make many connections right away which gives us a chance to get used to the fixed signs that are about to become the highlighted points in our charts. The Moon is in Gemini all weekend giving our minds and hearts the opportunity to connect, understand, think, and listen. We may feel like we are making some headway as the Moon trines Saturn on Saturday and Mercury overnight. Sunday the Moon opposes Venus which is bringing awareness to what we believe about relationships verses how we intellectually process our feelings about them. The Moon in Gemini is also approaching a trine with Jupiter that is exact Sunday evening. So overall this will be a great day to communicate needs and bring balance and understanding to any situation just be aware of the Moon square Neptune in Pisces which can bring confusion and a need to disconnect.
We awake with the Moon in Gemini trining Mars in Libra on this Moonday. This will hopefully provide the ability to communicate, listen, and plan our day! Our minds will be active as we start the week but that will give way to our emotional needs as the Moon moves into Cancer on Monday evening. The Moon will immediately trine the Sun in Scorpio which could turn our focus inward. Venus will be approaching a square to Neptune today which gives the quality of this Monday a very magical and perhaps a bit escapist or overindulgent. Venus is also approaching a sextile with Jupiter so all in all this seems like a good day to connect with a loved one or friends but take some steps to ground yourself in reality to avoid getting carried away with Money or Love :)

Moon is in Sagittarius in the morning but moves into Capricorn mid-day - which means it begins approaching the first quarter square, or as you may view it, the half moon! This is the first adjustment after planting the seed of the New Moon phase so it has potential to be a tense day regarding rules and boundaries that you need to set in relationships. The helpful thing about this moon transit through Saturn ruled Capricorn is that Venus in Sagittarius will make an opportunistic sextile to Saturn in Aquarius which has JUST gone direct (finally). So, while the work has to be done it is supported by the highest minded ideals and goals! The sextile is exact on Wednesday but already active as we begin the week. We still have Mercury retrograding through Libra as well as the Sun and Mars which have just conjoined to begin a new phase. The beginning of this week may feel like a brand new start.
If you are an early riser, you may catch the Moon square to Chiron in Aries and Mercury Retrograde in Libra which makes a t-square in which we are required to act on how we communicate and cooperate in relationships but also how we stay in our authenticity and sovereignty. The Moon in Capricorn says “well, perhaps we should adjust the rules and boundaries”. With Saturn direct in Aquarius sextile Saturn it may feel more possible to do so. As we approach the evening we are also getting closer to the waxing first quarter square. With the Pluto very close by it will be time to push forward and step into our own power and authority. The evening will be deep and contemplative.
Early morning the Moon crosses over Pluto so we will wake up to a feeling of resolve. Venus is sextile Saturn all day giving us support that we need from our own inner truth and visions for the future. The Sun is approaching an extremely supportive trine to Jupiter, the archetype of expansion and truth and is with just a few degrees which should give today a bit of a hopeful vibe which gets stronger as the evening progresses.
We wake up with the Moon in Aquarius just passing Saturn and in a sextile with Venus in Sagittarius which will then make the day more expansive and future-focused than it has been in quite some time. The Moon will then sextile Chiron as it trines Mercury Retrograde late morning just before lunch which invites us all to feel into the ways we can restructure our relationships to support healing that authentic self that wants to be accepted and loved. The evening yields a trine between the Moon and Jupiter to Mars and the Sun which gives us the necessary diplomatic initiative and innovative ways of thinking to bring out of balance places in our lives into equilibrium.
We are dominated by the positive energy of Moon/Jupiter trine to Sun/Mars which is altogether motivating and inspiring. However it will be helpful to watch any ego or anger outbursts as Mars can being expanded by Jupiter in that way. As well as the fact Mercury Retrograde in Libra makes it to the 10th degree of Libra which exactly opposes Chiron Retrograde. Sensitivities could be high, but so is our ability to rise above them. This has a lot to do with the fact that Venus is coming into a nice supportive trine with Chiron at the same time. This is a good day to keep FUTURE YOU in mind. The Moon moves into Pisces overnight and the dream world will be active!
Saturday 10/16 and Sunday 10/17
This weekend is an interesting one and does not seem as light to me as the week prior. First thing Saturday morning I notice is the Sun approaching it’s square with Pluto (and is exact Sunday AM) which will have major reverberations in the way we stand in our power especially regarding relationships. What seems fair and balanced, or not? Energy is truly building the entirety of the weekend. The Moon is in Pisces all for the duration which could have us feeling like we would just rather escape. In addition Mars is applying to a trine with Jupiter all weekend which expands the good sides and bad sides of Mars so think ‘extra motivation and passion’ but also ‘extra anger and competitiveness or passive aggressiveness’. This will probably show itself most fiercely in relationships (of all kinds). The other dominating piece of the weekend puzzle is that both Mercury in Libra AND Jupiter in Aquarius will be stationing, which means slowing down to turn direct (both do this exactly on Monday the 18th). It makes both energies bigger and more commanding. So we can multiply all of what I have said by 100.
This deserves a preview. This Monday is shaping up to be a doozy. As I alluded to in the weekend bit, Mercury and Jupiter both turn direct today. The Moon moves into Aries just before sunrise exacerbating the fact Mars in Libra is being expanded by Jupiter in Aquarius. This also kicks off the Full Moon period which will happen on Wednesday 10/20. It will feel very high energy today - maybe even anxious or angsty for some. Keep in mind we are entering pretty fiery territory this week! Take care of your body this evening as the Moon conjoins Chiron in Aries.
New Moon in Libra is exact Wed October 6th at 6:05 am central us time.
We are dominated by confusing energy today as the Moon is in Virgo and it will be opposing Neptune for the majority of the day. We want to get things done but it may seem like a futile endeavor. Especially with Mercury currently retrograde and trine to Jupiter retrograde. It would not be surprising if communication gets disrupted in a major way which makes it a bit of a messy start to the week. Pluto is just about to turn direct so it is slow and standing still demanding attention to the places in our lives where there are power imbalances. What do you allow to hold power over you? This may become more clear later in the evening when the Moon trines Pluto and applies to a sextile with Venus in Scorpio. It is a good contemplation for this spacey Monday.
The Moon moves into Libra in the early morning (7:42 Central US time) in which it will join the Sun, Mars, and Mercury Retrograde. This is a fairly active New Moon phase as Mars brings either a bit of angst or a motivation to balance relationships. Mercury Retrograde is causing us to rethink how we communicate and cooperate. New Moon phases tend to be quiet and contemplative but this particular one is buzzing with activity. The first thing in the morning on Tuesday is the Moon trine the North Node which is brief but gives us a nudge towards the correct path. By evening the Moon makes a supportive connection to Saturn in Aquarius. We understand the work that needs to be done, especially in regards to how we relate to others, in order to achieve our goals. As nighttime rolls around the Moon opposes Chiron which can feel a bit sensitive, and so this is a night to rest early if possible.
The New Moon is exact in libra at 6:05 am Central US time - so this morning is really charged with a kind of quiet electricity. Its as if we are all on pause and plugged in to charge up today. But be aware, the connection could be hit and miss. Mercury Retrograde throws us for a loop when it comes to communication and mental processes so read, speak, and act as steadily as you can, especially with the added impulsive effect of the New Moon/Mars quincunx Uranus. Our desires will be glaringly obvious and hard to ignore! The Ruler of the New Moon, Venus, is at the late degrees of Scorpio which is associated with topics of power, transformation, and how we share ourselves. Adding to this theme, powerful Pluto the god of the Underworld, is stationing to go direct after lunch. The Moon meets trickster Mercury around dinner and we may find that we have a change of perspective. By dinner the Moon is trining Jupiter giving us big feelings about the future!
We awake on Thursday Morning with Venus leaving Scorpio which changes the feel of reality rather abruptly. Venus in Sagittarius wants to be optimistic and adventurous, yet, the Moon moves into Scorpio mid-morning so we are still left to deeply contemplate how we share ourselves. The new phase of the Moon also runs into an obstacle at dinnertime when it squares Saturn. This is a situation that could feel disempowering but try to re-frame and think about the work that needs to be done to achieve future goals. Keep your eyes on the prize!
We have a big wake-up call Friday morning as the Moon opposes Uranus which is a brief moment of upheaval especially regarding our emotions - this colors most of the day and by the evening the Moon is trining Neptune and Squaring Jupiter which indicates a need to trust our intuition on a situation rather than what we think we know about it. Dreams will be active this evening.
The weekend is shaped by Venus in Sagittarius applying to a conjunction with the South Node. This is a chance to let go of outdated narratives regarding Love and Money but you could have some karmic ghosts haunt your mental hallways with Mercury Retrograde. Don’t get caught up in the past! Look towards the future and allow yourself to marinate in the feelings. The Moon joins Venus and the South Node in Sagittarius by around 10:30 am central time which brings emotions into the fold. Moon conjunctions with Venus tend to be really sweet and beautiful, however the South Node being present does indicate some old karmic shadows so try use this opportunity to connect with ancestral knowledge rather than give into the temptation to fall back into old patterns. Saturday also holds the energy of the Mercury / Sun conjunction with Mars there as well, otherwise known as a Cazimi. I envision this as Mercury’s idea’s about relationships getting “burned away” by the light of the sun to make room for new ideas. We may be letting go of something that was never ours to carry today!
Are you ready to be productive? Great because Saturn goes direct today! The Moon in Sagittarius will sextile Mercury Rx, then Mars, then the Sun, and also Jupiter so it will feel like an extremely active day. I would not be surprise if lots of plans are made. Inspiration abounds and a the future begins to take shape. The Moon squares Neptune as we lay our heads down so the dream world may be active.
Moon moves into Capricorn mid-day - which means it begins approaching the first quarter square, or as you may view it, the half moon! This is the first adjustment after planting the seed of the New Moon phase so it has potential to be a tense day regarding rules and boundaries that you need to set in relationships.

Week of March 8th - 14th 2021
Monday / 8th
Monday we wake up with the Moon in determined Capricorn - it first makes an opportunistic connection with the Sun and Neptune in Pisces. But we double down on the rules and boundaries we have set for ourselves as the Moon conjoins Pluto later in the afternoon. This should feel like RESOLVE. Overall Monday could have a bit of a swing to it as we see the magical possibilities in the first part of the day and then become aware of the truth of the matter in the evening. Check in with yourself - are you letting your desire to escape reality mask the very real responsibilities of life in any way? Is there any situations in your life that seem too good to be true? Consult your intuition and communicate your goals and boundaries clearly today.
Tuesday / 9th
The Moon moves into Aquarius overnight and we wake up with a supportive trine to Warrior Mars in Gemini - if you have been needing a spark to move towards any goal, this is that spark. The Moon in Aquarius can have an emotionally detached but intellectual flair for thinking outside the box - so coupled with the trickster energy, we would do well to listen and learn from our surroundings during the morning. As minutes turn into hours, the Moon applies to a challenging Square aspect with shifty Uranus and a also a synergistic conjunction to responsible Saturn. This Moon transit will ignite the Saturn - Uranus square that has been and will be active all year. So, early afternoon into the evening has the propensity to bring in some emotional upheaval especially if we are feeling held back in any area or limited by Saturn. The tension between the desire for freedom and the desire to consciously and responsibly build towards our goals has both an oppressive and fevered quality. We are graciously granted a healing and supportive sextile between the Moon and Chiron in Aries that is helping us stand in our truth and autonomy. Remember, you have a right to be your unique self - focus on whatever is in alignment with that unique purpose.
Wednesday / 10th
The Moon is still in Aquarius and as we awake on Wednesday morning it joins up with the expansive and abundant energy of Jupiter. This typically means big emotions but because the Moon is in its balsamic waning phase, we may have big emotions but they may be more privately big. To add to the quiet and ethereal quality, the Sun meets up with diffusive and dreamy Neptune. This day may indeed seem like a dream and that is the best thing you can do with this specific type of energy: DREAM. And dream big! Let your imagination run - what goals will you be setting for this New Moon? Today is a good idea to brainstorm the possibilities as the Moon moves towards a conjunction with Mercury late that evening.
Thursday / 11th
The dreamy quality gets heavier today as the Moon moves into Pisces. If there ever was a time to make decisions - now is NOT that time. It IS however the time for Observation and Allowing. Why do I say this? The Moon is Void-of-Course most of the day, meaning it makes no aspects to any other planets which translates to not being able to accomplish much. The other reason is that Pisces as the overarching theme can be confusing and illusory. Overall it is best to lay low, connect with your spiritual, emotional, and mystic side. The first aspect the Moon makes is early evening and it is a challenging Square to Mars in Gemini. This could cause anxiety as we have the motivation and need to do something but we are lacking in the focus to do so. Take it easy on yourself!
Friday / 12th through Sunday /14th
Friday completely holds the mystical tone of the previous day. The Moon makes a challenging square to the Nodes early in the morning and this can have us questioning the path we are on. Pay attention to the stories you tell yourself during this time. If we can observe them for what they are we can allow the old narratives to just fade away into the Piscean mist. Late in the evening will feel magical as the Moon conjoins Venus. Again, don’t make any important decisions during this time. Escapism can be a major theme so be aware that you need to ground and check on the people around you. Many times this specific energy can invite one to over-indulge in all manner of things - keep it moderate!
The weekend is intensely mystical and dreamy with a New Moon in Pisces kicking it off Saturday Morning (5 am CST). The intentions you set on this day are some of the most potent this year because of the beneficial and magical presence of Venus and Neptune. This is not a New Moon to ignore, and if at all possible set intentions before 5 pm on Saturday when the Moon leaves the mist of Pisces. Sunday is for healing as the Moon has moved into Aries. It makes an opportunistic sextile to motivated Mars and also meets up with the wounded healer Chiron early in the morning. Making decisions that are best for our healing is the theme Sunday. It is helpful because we can be intellectually and emotionally aware of the best places to put our energy for the week ahead.

THESE ASTROLOGICAL INTERPRETATIONS ARE WRITTEN FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF CENTRAL STANDARD TIME & GEARED TOWARDS THE COLLECTIVE. ADJUST LOCAL TIMES ACCORDINGLY. KNOWING YOUR OWN CHART IS BEST WAY TO UNDERSTAND HOW THESE COLLECTIVE TRANSITS MIGHT AFFECT YOU PERSONALLY.
Week of March 1st - 7th 2021
Monday / 1st
We begin this week with the Moon, our emotional nature, in the harmony loving sign of Libra. That by itself can be nice and creative but we have the added bonus of a positive and supportive trine to the trickster Mercury and the Abundant King Jupiter, who are maintaining the birds eye view in Aquarius. This is brief but very auspicious as it can give us a feeling of expansion and hope.
Tuesday / 2nd
When we wake up Tuesday Morning, we may have a brief but intense and deep emotional dive into truth as the Moon makes a tense square to the Powerful and Probing Pluto. At the same time, Mars, which governs our will and ego, will have moved to the Anaretic degree. This is the 29th degree and it holds in it every lesson we have learned with Mars in the steady and sensuous sign of Taurus. If you have been low energy lately this would be a possible culprit and it will reach its heights while at this specific spot. So while we may feel like we are trudging through Mud, it is worth noting that Mars will break free from the sign based square it has had with the Task Master and Rule Maker - Saturn. We are almost there, and sometimes the last few steps seem to be the most challenging. To add to the intensity, The Moon moves to the Deep Emotional Waters of Scorpio later in the afternoon and we see how a few different areas of our life seem to be pulling on one another. How much am I worth (Uranus in Taurus), how much am I willing to share (Moon in Scorpio), and what are my goals for the future(Aquarius)?
Wednesday / 3rd
The Scorpio Moon is quite affected by several different transits in the wee hours of Wednesday morning and so we might wake up with the feeling that this is the most humpday of all humpdays. The Moon first makes a beautiful trine with Venus in Pisces as the receptive planet of love makes an opportunistic sextile to Uranus. Together, this should spark an intuitive awareness about a situation that you have been wanting to shift. The Moon then squares Saturn which forces us to look at the actual reality of the situation and what we can do about it within our own limits and structures. The Moon trines the Sun after Noon and Neptune late in the evening which together gives us an overall feeling of harmony between our emotional nature and our purpose. These shifts are only pushing you towards your destiny. The work with the Moon in Scorpio overall is deep and watch for the desire to Escape. If you feel like “getting out of reality”, use Creative Expression and Self-Care as that Magical Outlet. Smudge the house, chant, meditate, watch a documentary, take a nap! Fill your own cup.
Thursday / 4th
When you wake up, you might feel like a new person, because Mars will be in Gemini! YAY! Mars, the planet of action takes on a much busier, buzzier, frenetic energy in the communicative and thinking sign of Gemini. Its ok if you don’t feel a spark right off the bat though as the first part of the day the Moon is still in the deep waters of Scorpio. Perhaps during the first half of the day we are finishing the process of investigation and boy do we use what we have discovered as the Moon moves into Sagittarius and Opposes Mars in Gemini around dinner-time. Mercury also happens to be almost exactly conjunct Jupiter in Aquarius during this transit to the propensity to say things we don’t mean or speak a truth that someone else may not be ready or willing to hear is HIGH. I only tell you this so that you can make an informed decision during this transit and think before you speak. Depending on where you are at, it may be something that truly needs to be said - or something that truly needs to be kept to yourself.
Friday / 5th through Sunday / 7th
The Moon in optimistic and expansive Sagittarius comes into a tense Mutable Grand Cross mid-morning Friday with the Nodes in Gemini/Sag and Venus, the Sun, and Neptune in the ethereal diffusive sign of Pisces, and the keeper of the fire, Vesta in the focused and service oriented sign of Virgo. This is also the 3rd Quarter Square of the Moon and is the last adjustment of the Moon phase. I see this day as a re-imagining of our narrative. After the shift of Mars into Gemini we may feel spun around and disoriented so do not expect to see things extremely clearly on this day. So imagine those roots running deep and know that no matter how confusing reality seems at this time, that something is building in it. Some transmutation, some necessary dissolution. The thing about times like these is, the best thing we can do is surrender and let that metamorphosis occur. This tone is held through most of the weekend with the Moon in Sag and the Sun remaining square the nodes. Sunday will feel the most grounded with the Moon moving into Capricorn late Saturday night. Sunday morning we might awake with our feet on more solid ground and an increased ability to organize ourselves for the week ahead.
