October Horoscopes

October Horoscopes

Over the past several months, a number of you have reached out to me for sessions because you have discovered or uncovered some big, life-changing truth. The diagnosis of an illness, an incredible opportunity, a revealed secret, or a truth about who you are and how you need to show up differently in the world. These are times of discovery, and this month is no exception. Dig deep into your psyche, feel the resonance of truth in your heart, and you will be free.

On October 2, Pluto stations direct, giving us the go-ahead to put a spotlight on corruption in government, religion, and other institutions (Capricorn’s domain). It also gives you an opportunity to come out of hiding in some way in your life. On October 3, Mercury enters Scorpio and assists with this effort. It will start to slow down and enter its shadow phase on October 15 and then station retrograde on October 31.

This Mercury retrograde period could reveal more truth. Feel all the feelings, and know that any struggle will pass. Know, too, that any elation will also pass. This retrograde cycle could present you with key life decisions. Do you stay or go? Those kinds of decisions. Clarify your intentions and clear distractions. This mercury retrograde could be quite emotional, but you won’t likely feel it until the very end of the month. Until then, buckle up! You’re in for a ride.

The Full Moon on October 13 makes a T-square to Pluto, the planet of power and transformation. Mark your calendar for this one, as it will tug your heartstrings and could lead to lasting changes in your love life. The Moon in Aries opposes the Sun in Libra. This axis line is about self and others. It’s about being in relationships without losing yourself. It’s about finding balance within the power structures of your relationships without dominating others or, conversely, abdicating your power. The T-square with Pluto punctuates these themes. If you are an Aries, Libra, Cancer, or Capricorn, this will likely affect you more strongly than other signs.

On October 20 and 21, Venus applies aspects to Saturn and Neptune, helping restore balance to relationships and helping clear any anxiety you may have felt throughout the month in general.

On October 23, the Sun enters Scorpio, and the New Moon on October 27 clears a canvas for you to tap into your creativity. What would you like to make happen in your life next year? Imagine the possibilities.

Moments of turbulence throughout the month may feel like tremors in your life. Establish new grounding and center yourself. Try to focus on the present moment, rather than worry about the future or revisit the past. Understand you may not be able to change the circumstances of your life, but you can change your responses to them. Above all, stay positive! Miracles can and do occur. Just look at where you are right now! How many miracles have paved the path you’ve traveled? These are miraculous times, and often chaos precedes the creation of something magnificent.

September Horoscopes

September Horoscopes

We start the back-to-school season with the perfect planetary alignment. Mercury, Venus, Mars, and the Sun are all in analytical Virgo, and they will apply aspects to Uranus early in the month. You will be motivated to accomplish most of the items on your to-do-list, thanks to Virgo’s work ethic, ability to tune out distractions, and time management skills. You could also become inspired by a bright new idea or pursue a creative endeavor.

You could overdo it if you’re not careful, as the Virgo planets will square Jupiter.  You want to keep stress levels down. Think of working in small increments, one thing at a time. 

Watch your health this month. The personal planets in Virgo, Jupiter in Sagittarius, and Neptune in Pisces, all relate with one another throughout the first part of the month, making us all more sensitive. Boost your immune system and use Virgo’s discipline to eat a healthier diet. Consider seeing a naturopathic doctor, acupuncturist, herbalist, or healer. 

The Full Moon on Friday, the 13th, in Pisces could be an emotional one. Your intuition could be heightened, allowing you to know what’s not working in your life. Let it go! Realize this is a foggy, unclear Full Moon. Pause and give any new insights time to settle before making any moves. 

On the 14thVenus enters her sign, Libra, helping relationships, social interactions, and most importantly, self-love. Start with self-care. 

On September 21, use your intuition to discern truth from fiction. We have a third and final Jupiter - Neptune square. Reflect on what was happening in your life on January 13 and June 16, as these storylines will draw to a close. The nature of Jupiter is expansive, larger-than-life, and generous. It magnifies anything it comes in contact with, in this case, Neptune. Neptune symbolizes dreams, visions, and ideals, but also, it represents illusion, confusion, and disillusionment. You may question what’s real or not during the few days before and after this transit perfects. Make sure your news sources are credible and avoid gossip. 

Sun in Virgo - August 23 - September 23

Sun in Virgo - August 23 - September 23

When you think of the sign of Virgo, think of the Vestal Virgins who dedicated themselves to the goddess Vesta. These women were the only ones of the time who were agents of their own lives. They didn’t belong to a husband or father; they had more choices than other women of the time.

Because of this association, Virgo is aligned with ritual and rite. They often incorporate purification rituals into their day-to-day lives, like exfoliating their face with specific products or washing their hands a certain way before eating.

Virgo can choose, and she does. Some might call Virgo picky, but really, Virgo is a sign of discernment. It can seem perfectionistic at times because it has a refined sense of order and high standards. It separates the wheat from the chaff. Virgo doesn’t like to waste time or energy.

Mercury, as the ruling planet, gives Earth-sign Virgo a more mental quality than other earth signs (Taurus and Capricorn). Virgo has analytical abilities but can become stuck as a result.

Virgo seeks order and organization. This helps them have a sense of control in their lives. Even messy Virgo’s will have one or two pristine areas of the home.

Virgo rules health and alternative healing, food manufacturing, and wellness.

Virgo is an earth sign, which makes them quite practical. You can count on a Virgo to stay on schedule or organize a lunch date.

August Horoscopes

August Horoscopes

The past six weeks have been tumultuous, with Mercury retrograde, two eclipses, and more. This month will feel like a respite after that high-energy time. You’re likely still processing what’s shown up for you over the past few weeks. If you had any significant realizations about yourself or your relationships, you might still be determining what changes to make in your life. You can make wiser decisions now that the dust has settled a little, and the overall energy of this month is more relaxed.

The New Moon in Leo on July 31, kicks off the month a day early. It highlights the prominent Leo energy we’ll feel throughout most of the month.

When I think about the sign of Leo, I think about the symbolism of the lion. Recently, our friends returned from an African safari with all of these photos and videos of their adventures. Now, ordinarily, watching vacation videos wouldn’t be my cup of tea! But the videos they captured of lions were so good, and the lions’ behavior fascinated me. They were so playful! It was like watching my two cats when they’re in full play mode, swatting at one another and any feather toy nearby. Now, don’t get me wrong; those lions were fierce, protective, and powerful, too.

Watching these felines in action, I couldn’t help thinking a little more about the sign of Leo. Here are some of my observations:

  1. Leos have a lot of energy. We might call it creative energy, passion, or physical vigor. Unless expressed in productive ways, it can bottle up and turn in on itself, becoming anger or anger’s quiet cousin, depression.

  2. Leos don’t have to try to be powerful. They exude it. Therefore, they command attention, and others recognize them as leaders who stand out. Lions, too, inspire reverence, awe, and fear, from other animals (and people). It’s all in how they carry themselves. So, Leos ought not to feed insecure thoughts or feelings. Own your charisma, brilliance, and power!

  3. Leos are playful! Inside every Leo adult is a little kitten wanting to luxuriate, relax, and play. This quality can be expressed through art or other creative endeavors, as well as by lounging poolside.

  4. Leos love luxury. For lions in the wild, it’s lounging in the shaded grasses on a sunny day. For humans, it can be anything from a spa day to shopping to sharing a good meal with friends.

  5. Leos are loyal.

I encourage you to take a few lessons from Leo at the start of the month and let your heart take the lead. Use your creative, life-force energy in productive ways, own your brilliance, luxuriate, and stay loyal to your path.

July Horoscopes

July Horoscopes

Welcome to Cancer season, a time when we crave deeper connections, when our heartstrings are more easily tugged, and when our priorities shift from the outer world to the inner one. You will undoubtedly feel that tension this month, as two eclipses accentuate that Cancer/Capricorn axis. Cancer themes are home, family, emotions, and our ancestral roots. It’s the sign ruled by the moon, a symbol of all things yin, which includes the innermost creative and fertile aspects of the self. The opposite sign on that axis, Capricorn, symbolizes the ambitious, driven, striving, and public aspects of the self. It also relates to the structural systems of government, authority, economy, and institutions. For thousands of years, those systems have been patriarchal and kyriarchal, with hierarchical power structures that have their basis in leadership and governance through domination.

Well, all of this is changing! And the North Node in Cancer is helping us evolve in a new direction. So too, our relationships, families, and ideals are changing. You might be experiencing this in your life right now. We are all shifting, in transition, but without a real clear vision for where we will be by this time next year, after the Saturn/Pluto conjunction of 2020, which will be a big astrological influence we’ll all feel! (I’m going to be writing about that more this month.) Some of those 2020 themes will be foreshadowed here this month around the time of the eclipses on July 2 and 16.

A LOT is happening astrologically this month. It’s going to be especially exciting for Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. We start with the solar eclipse on July 2, a time of change and shakeup of any stagnant situation in your life. Connect with others and brainstorm about how to live a more expansive, open, and heart-centered life. You’ve got some big ideas and dreams right now. It’s not a time to hold back or let fear stand in the way.

June Horoscopes

June Horoscopes

June's astrology invites you to adopt a more flexible, progressive, and adaptive mindset. It challenges your ideas about what you know to be true. It urges you to ask questions -- to invoke your inner investigative journalist! We live in a time of transition, and you certainly see evidence of this in the collective. But you may feel this in your personal life as well. You are becoming even more aware of what's not working for you in relationships and all other areas of your life. You're becoming more conscious and aware of your soul's calling and deep desires. You could want to take action to make changes, but is it time? Seek more information and be open to surprises until June 21.

This month, you recognize the power of your voice, and as you activate courage, you can speak and live your truth without compromise. You have a heightened intuition, which amplifies awareness about possible pitfalls or precarious situations. As a result, you will feel prepared to protect and defend yourself and others dear to you. Just make sure you see all sides of a situation. Look at all the details before making an absolute assertion.

We start the month on a high note with a New Moon in Gemini, the sign of intellectual curiosity, on June 3. On this same day, Venus encourages us to ask questions and get to the root of relationship concerns.

As a guiding ritual, think of one recurring unpleasant thought you'd like to change. Write it down. Then, create an affirmation you'd rather hear in your mind and write that down. You could even write it on a post-it and attach it to your mirror. For two weeks, say this as a mantra. Set a reminder on your phone to say the affirmation aloud at least five times per day until it resonates deeply within you.

You could also set an intention for something you'd like to learn or teach. The beginning of the month is an excellent time to develop your mind in some new way. Your mental faculties will be at their best!

Things shift in the middle of the month, and we see a sneak preview of early 2020. On June 14, Mars, the warrior planet, opposes Saturn, the planet of authority and structure. You may have to ask yourself: To whom or what am I abdicating my power? In what ways am I allowing the structures of government, religion, family, corporation, or institutions define my identity? Everything is up for your awareness right now.

The Full Moon on June 17 helps you see things more clearly and gain faith if you have felt doubt or uncertainty regarding any circumstance in your life.

Soon afterward, Mars opposes Pluto on June 20. This combination could set off fireworks long before the Fourth of July! If your relationships or other areas of your life have felt lackluster or blah, this transit wakes you up to your potential in all ways. A surge of passion could lead you to make bold moves forward in your life; no holds barred!

The Summer Solstice starts the next day, June 21. Any solstice or equinox point marks the Sun's transition into a cardinal sign. (Aries and Libra for the equinox points; Cancer and Capricorn for the solstice points.) Cardinal signs emphasize initiative on behalf of a great need, for yourself, your family, on behalf of love, or community. The Sun's ingress into Cancer invites us to balance polarity within ourselves and the social paradigm. It's an awakening of the most yin, creative, and prolific aspects of yourself and our culture.

Pay attention to what unfolds in your life between June 14-June 21. These will serve as foreshadows, and you will see some complex connections taking shape in your life over the next six months.

I encourage you to take advantage of these transits. Is there anything you've been resisting or afraid to try, say, or do? As long as it doesn't intentionally harm others and it serves the highest good, go for it! Be brave in your life, and your courage will ripple change in the world.

May Horoscopes

May Horoscopes

This month, we take a look back as a collective and ask ourselves: How could we have done better? Pluto, and Saturn are retrograde, and these two planets hold the major themes for this year and early next year.

When the outer planets go retrograde, we usually feel the influence on a collective level more than a personal one. The Pluto retrograde cycle lasts five months; it stations direct on October 3. Whenever inner planets (Mercury, Venus, and Mars) go retrograde, we tend to experience the influence in our day-to-day lives. The outer planets present general themes we look at as a collective. They bring us full-circle in many ways or help shift our consciousness about matters related to that planet. 

Specifically, Pluto in Capricorn shines a light on corruption, institutional wrongdoing and oppression, and deceit. As Pluto moves retrograde, we might have the chance to bring some of these issues to light.

Saturn, the planetary police officer, is also retrograde, and they’re both in the same sign. The good news is: If you’ve been working hard and staying focused on something, you have manifesting power right now! Saturn likes to reward hard work and diligence, but it also wants to make sure you’re being authentic to yourself in the process. Otherwise, it might nudge you back on track.

 Pluto retrograde is a time to reevaluate the power dynamics in your relationships. If you have been involved in a relationship that has an element of control or possessiveness, you could find ways to free yourself from those patterns, if not the relationship, itself. If you have been obsessing about a person or a past situation, Pluto invites you to surrender and let go. 

If you have planets around 19˚ - 23˚ of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn, you will feel the influence of these planets more intensely than others. So, don’t give up, no matter how challenging the test of faith.

On May 4, the new moon in Taurus invites you to set realistic intentions and plant seeds (literally or metaphorically). It encourages you to be patient, as anything you start will take time to manifest. It will be lasting, though.

April Horoscopes

April Horoscopes

The sun in Aries motivates us to take a risk, advance forward, and start new beginning. It’s no coincidence Aries season is also springtime here in the Northern Hemisphere, when blossoms are bursting open, and new life abounds. I will post this on April Fool’s Day, April 1. I think of the Fool card in the tarot deck. It looks like this:

The Fool card represents a soul incarnating, and each card in the Major Arcana explains a different aspect of human life the Fool must encounter on its way to enlightenment. The Fool in the card has everything it needs (symbolized by the bag it carries), a white rose to express spiritual innocence, and a loyal guardian symbolized by the dog. The Fool has wisdom packed into its pouch, and it looks upward toward the heavens as it walks forward. It’s not “foolish” as we might think of it; rather, the term “fool” implies the absence of fear and the willingness to step into the unknown.

Consider stepping into April with this same spirit. Be open to adventure, willing to keep looking up, and trusting in the universe to guide and protect you along the way.

Before you take a step off the proverbial cliff and into the new unknown, you may have to clear some karma, face fears, and do some letting go. Because of that, you could feel as if you’re taking one big step forward... only to stand still, catch your breath, reassess, and do some releasing/letting go.

March Horoscopes

March Horoscopes

We enter a new seven-year cycle of change and progress this month as Uranus enters Taurus on March 6. If you are born during the first three days of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius, or if your moon or rising sign are at the early degrees of fixed signs, prepare yourself for significant turning points in life that will manifest over the next three months. Because of this transition, I can guarantee this will not be a boring month for any of us!

Uranus moves into a new sign every seven years, and we see technological advances and progress in the fields associated with that sign. In Taurus, that means environmental, textiles, currency and the economy, earth and even seismic shifts, possessions, and goods. You can read more about this cycle here.

In addition to this planetary shift, we are also in a Mercury retrograde cycle from March 5-28 in the other-worldly sign of Pisces. Mercury rules mental processes, and with its placement in Pisces, you have the chance to deeply explore the creative and spiritual dimensions of yourself. At the same time, you could feel foggy, unclear about circumstances in your life. You may question others’ motives or doubt your intuition. You could feel as if a cloud hangs overhead blocking the light. The concept of the dark night of the soul explains a period of emotional intensity in which you feel a painful separation from God and others. Alone. During those moments of doubt, you dig deep within yourself to connect with your divine spark, and in doing so, you arrive at faith. If you have moments like these this month, understand they may be critical turning points in your life, and keep going! Often, these crisis points loosen the ego's grip, helping you break down fear-based structures. That process of surrender helps you open energetic space for a new beginning or manifestation.

February Horoscopes

February Horoscopes

January’s eclipses provided an intense start to 2019. February is a time to ground and center as the eclipse energy subsides. Several planets in earth signs (Venus, Saturn, Pluto, and later Mars) can help support you in taking practical steps forward in your life this month, but they encourage you to do so with caution.

Your attention may be focused on love and relationships, with Valentine’s Day in the middle of the month. Venus, the planet dedicated to romance, shines in careful Capricorn from February 3 on, making this a time to make careful choices in your love life. If your relationship is rock solid, you can make plans and set intentions together, especially at the time of the new moon on February 4. On February 18 and 22, you could have two chances to rethink your relationship dynamics and make changes to have more satisfying and healthy bonds.

The full moon on February 19 opens your access to imagination. Your dreams may offer guidance or symbolism relating to your life. Notice any creative impulses, and indulge them. You could be receiving a calling to live up to your highest potential, and creativity is a key to gain access to that information.

The moon’s placement in Virgo is excellent for cleaning, organizing, decluttering, or taking a detox. You could also feel more aware of criticism than usual. Therefore, be gentle with your loved ones, and find constructive ways to offer feedback to avoid seeming judgmental.

January Horoscopes

January Horoscopes

This month will feature several transits that set the stage for 2019. Therefore, take note of your life circumstances, how you feel, and what inspires you to make a change. You may not have definite answers about next steps, though. So, observe without judgment, talk things through with people you trust, and find space to tune out the collective noise. These circumstances and the concurrent reflections will offer clues about how to navigate the path ahead. That’s perhaps the greatest gift of this month: You have a window to peek through to access your higher consciousness. It’s time to experience your truth.

You could feel ups and downs. For example, you could have sudden fears about the economy followed by optimism about your future. These shifting currents invite you to hold space for all possibilities in your life and to dwell in the complexity of both/and thinking. You’re just riding the waves of an intense period on either side of two eclipses — a Solar Eclipse on January 5 and a Lunar one on January 21. Eclipses can awaken an internal signal that it’s time to change some aspect of your life. If you are a Cancer, Libra, Aries, or Capricorn Sun, Moon, or Rising, these will especially affect you.

Jupiter steals the show as the star of our astrological play this month and again throughout 2019. As the planet of expansion, it tends to place a giant spotlight on an area of your chart. For Sagittarius, this can be a very favorable influence! You may experience “lucky” circumstances, or have a greater sense of ease in accomplishing anything you dare to dream. Jupiter in a fire sign also supports Aries and Leo throughout the year.

On January 13, we encounter a tricky transit, with Jupiter square Neptune. The optimism of Jupiter meets up with the idealism of Neptune. However, they are challenging one another, and you will need to stay grounded in the practical to avoid a bubble burst later in the year. For some of you, this transit could be that burst, since it occurs in the eclipse tunnel when the energy is ripe for transformation. Pisces, Virgo, and Gemini will feel this influence the most.

On January 22, Venus teams up with Jupiter in Sagittarius, making this a pleasant, romantic day. This energy will be especially enjoyable for Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo.

2019 Horoscopes

2019 Horoscopes

Astrological highlights of 2019:

2019 closes out this decade, and some of the most significant transits set the stage for 2020, which will energetically loom over us. Because of this, 2019 could feel like a transitional year, one in which you will either open or close a chapter in life. Moving through any transitional time, it helps to ground your energy through dedicated spiritual practices, physical exercise, or designating one person in your life to be your "reality check." If you can maintain pragmatic optimism, 2019 will be your year!

Jupiter is one of the biggest stars in our astrological story this year. The planet of luck, expansion, and faith, is in its own sign of Sagittarius. It wants us to go all out, and it can fool us into thinking anything is possible! So, you could overcommit, spread yourself too thin, or overestimate your projected income versus your expenses. Instead, focus on your top priorities so you can end the year feeling accomplished, and make wise financial choices. There are several indicators of an uncertain economy this year and in 2020.

The first month of the year will feature most of the themes you'll encounter in 2019. We start with an eclipse, the first of five total this year, on January 5 in Capricorn. Eclipses present us with new information, often unrealized or hidden truth. Sometimes, they deliver our marching orders from the universe for the fulfillment of our life's mission. This first one is close to Saturn, the planetary police officer, which gives it a serious tone. It could amplify your ambition and push you back to work after the holiday break. You could also learn news of financial or professional matters that could shift your storyline. On January 21, the lunar eclipse in Aquarius asks us to revisit themes from 2018 and ask: Did I make the right decision? Accept the past, and keep your awareness on what healthy, life-enhancing changes you can make in the present. Keep in mind: The two weeks between eclipses can feel very intense! The North Node in Cancer encourages you to feel your feeling-- the joy, sadness, anger, and all.

December Horoscopes

December Horoscopes

This last month of 2018 will feel like the resolution chapter of an intense novel. It’s a time to reflect and recharge before beginning 2019.

We start the month with Mercury still retrograde until December 6. This Mercury retrograde has been particularly challenging for decision-making and communication within relationships. When Mercury goes retrograde, it asks us to fine-tune the way we express ourselves to others, and it’s a time to be honest without hiding or holding back. Mercury stationed retrograde in Sagittarius. The nature of Sagittarius is adaptable, and you may have overlooked details or had a few do-overs, which can be frustrating when you make a holiday purchase only to change your mind the next day.

Keep in mind: Mercury retrograde is a time to go inward and to deeply explore your inner worlds. Anything out of sync in your life will present itself for you to see and remedy so you can be in alignment with your higher self.

On December 1, Mercury slides back into Scorpio, and hidden truth comes into light. If you have had trust issues come up over the past several months, you could learn or intuit clear answers. Mercury’s move back into Scorpio will be especially important for helping us uncover the facts in recent political/social matters. It’s a good investigative influence.

November Horoscopes

November Horoscopes

November starts with Scorpio Season when we are asked to plunge the depths of our deepest yearnings, core truth, buried emotions, and limiting fears. It's a time to slay your inner demons and then experience the grace that follows processes of transformation.

Two significant cycles change this month.

On November 6, the nodal axis shifts from Leo/Aquarius to Cancer/Capricorn. The North Node will be moving from expressive, dramatic Leo into emotional, maternal Cancer. The nodes change signs every 18 months, and the North Node symbolizes our point of focus, our North Star. The North Node in Cancer invites us to care for and protect those we love, to understand the difference between emotional safety and guardedness, and to balance ambition with emotional connections. The South Node will be in the sign of Capricorn, which is the sign related to the public life. At the opposite end of that axis is Cancer, which is all about the home and family. You could feel an inner tug-of-war between these two polarities, especially if you are a Capricorn, Cancer, Libra, or Aries.

September Horoscopes

September Horoscopes

September is a month for transitions. With Mars finally direct and moving forward, life feels in motion once again. The eclipses in July and August helped shake things up for many of us. Eclipses spotlight the nodal axis line, and during that time, you gain more clarity about your soul's purpose. You can access the courage you need to make changes in life to better align with your purpose. However, with Mars retrograde throughout the summer, enacting those changes was a very slow process. In fact, you might have felt stuck, confused, or tired. The result might have been heightened awareness without action... and then frustration! This month, that all changes. 

On September 22, the equinox ushers in a time of movement. The Sun moves into Libra, a Cardinal sign. Cardinal signs begin on solstice and equinox points. Cardinal signs are all about action and taking the initiative to make things happen. They also mark the change of seasons. Leading up to the 22nd, you might feel a burning desire to finish a project, reach a goal, or make a change. 

August Horoscopes

August Horoscopes

We have been in an "Eclipse Season," a period of emotional intensity between eclipses. It started July 12, and it concludes with the solar eclipse on August 11. Eclipses, being super full and new moons, wake dormant or suppressed emotions, which can rise to the surface of your conscious awareness. Heightened emotions alert us to what is in or out of alignment in our lives. They spur us forward, fueling our energy for personal change.

Because Mars is closer than it has been in 15 years and retrograde (until August 27), some of those emotions might include anger, frustration, passion, or courage. (You can see a live viewing of Mars here!) The heightened awareness you experience right now will ripple change into every area of your life. 

This eclipse (as well as the one on July 27), lies on the Aquarius/Leo axis, one that reminds you to use your talents to contribute to the whole. In living the truest expressions of yourself, you shape the global community. So, if you are looking for a way to make a difference, ask what most brings you fulfillment and satisfaction, and do that. 

July Horoscopes

July Horoscopes

This is going to be a month to remember because so much is changing both in our collective as well as in personal lives. You could feel fireworks all month long! If you feel like you're in a major transition but don't quite know what it's about, you're not alone. Several astrological indicators of change are all happening this month. 

First of all, we have two eclipses, a solar one on July 12 and a lunar one on July 27. In the two-week period between eclipses, you have powerful realizations about your life, including what changes you need to make to live a more purposeful life. You could feel heightened emotions as well, especially passion, frustration, or anger, as the moon will be conjunct Mars on the 27th just before the eclipse. 

June Horoscopes

June Horoscopes

The sun steals the show this month as it slides into Cancer on the solstice June 21. Anytime the sun enters a cardinal sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn), we can feel inspired to take action or to move forward in our lives. Cardinal ingresses happen at each equinox or solstice point. The equinox in March starts the astrological year, and it is a time for planting seeds. By the solstice in June, we begin to see a harvest. We can better see the manifestation of our intentions. In the Northern Hemisphere, cultures have celebrated the June solstice as a feast of fertility, abundance, and harvest. 

Shortly after the solstice, however, Mars stations retrograde and begins to square Uranus, which moved into Taurus in May shortly afterward, starting July 9. Mars is the planet of action, motivation, and conflict for a cause. In retrograde, Mars slows things down, allowing you time to reassess goals. A retrograde period is not usually a favorable time to launch a new endeavor, as we often feel pulled inward and could experience delays.

May Horoscopes

May Horoscopes

As we enter into the month we get a nice break after April, when we experienced the buildup of dynamic cardinal energy... within a Mercury retrograde period. Quite frustrating! April ended with a powerful Full Moon in Scorpio that was pretty intense for us all because it brought up a whole a lot of suppressed or hidden issues, especially in relationships. Anything unsettled had to come to the surface and you likely have had to get real about working for you and what wasn’t. Now, take a deep breath. The first week of May is like the rest period In an interval training. Relax and enjoy it!! 

Then, on May 13, things start to change. The biggest astrological event happening this month features the planet Uranus, the planet of change, surprises, and shocks. It moves into a new sign, Taurus, on May 15. When you think about this planet, think about lightening- sudden, and exciting. It’s all about breakthroughs. It changes signs about every 7 years, and when it does, we experience changes in different areas of our lives.
