New Moon in Aquarius - You Say You Want A Revolution?

On February 4th, we have a new moon at 15 degrees Aquarius.  This moon has some warm fuzzies attached to it and it marks the opportunity for liberation, a personal revolution for each of us in some way.  It's a fresh start in whatever house Aquarius sits in our chart.
The new moon is happening right after Imbolc, the pagan celebration marking the half-way point between the winter solstice and the spring equinox.  Mother Earth is pregnant with new life, even if we can't see it just yet.

We also have Mars coming together with Uranus and having a tense conversation with the nodes of the moon.  This speaks to a strong urge for liberation, change, action.  We may feel restless and in wanting to make a radical move to free ourselves from the past. Or we may be mired in the past and resentful and angry about it.  The key here is a compassionate, nurturing, higher minded approach, rather than impulsive rebellion, or unhinged force.
To hear how this all speaks to your sign, listen to the video (including the intro).

Nurturing, Love, Abundance & Growth after Eclipse Intensity

This week we have Mercury moving into Aquarius until Feb 10th.  Our thinking and communications will be more innovative, out of the box and open minded, non-linear, throughout this transit. 
Asteroid Ceres moves into Sagittarius on Friday, where she will hang out until mid-November.  Ceres speaks to how we nurture and feel nurtured.  She is the energy of the earth mother in our chart.  While in Sag, the nurturing energy of Sag is expressed through knowledge, wisdom and adventure.

Finally, we are under the lovely influence of Venus conjunct Jupiter also in Sagittarius, all this week.  This can bring luck, expansion and abundance in love, money, resources, values, and self-worth.

Jupiter Square Neptune - Resolving Tension with Creative & Realistic Solutions

January is a month of intensity, confusion, and challenge.   BUT, there is also an overarching sense of hope and faith that in the end, it will all work out.  Paradox.  These energies flavour the whole of 2019.

The big news this week is Jupiter in Sagittarius, squaring Neptune in Pisces.  This is the first of three exact hits of this energy over the course of 2019.  This first time will alert us to some bigger picture issue that needs resolving.  A square is a conversation of tension - something's gotta give in order to resolve the tension.  A creative and compassionate solution is the best approach, while also staying grounded in the realistic (thanks to all that's going on in Capricorn this year).
For the whole picture, and to find out how this is impacting your sign, watch the video.

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Capricorn - Doing Our Best

I've been away for a couple of weeks for good reason.  But I'm back and I'm doing my best.  Because that's all we can ever really do, right?
The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Capricorn on Jan 5th, is part of a larger, longer story that is playing out.  The last of these eclipses is taking place in January 2020, just as the Saturn-Pluto Conjunction does.  We are getting well acquainted with all things Capricorn and being asked to strike a balance between the themes of Capricorn (patriarchy, authority, ambition, public life, reputation, material manifestation, mastery), and Cancer themes of matriarchy, receptivity, emotional security, nurturing, private life, our roots.

Capricorn realizes there are limitations and boundaries, but this doesn't stop it from continuing to climb the mountain.  Capricorn is a survivalist, and it knows that slow and steady wins the race. There is sooooo much more to say on this!  Watch the video for all the details and to find out how this is impacting your sign.
