FULL MOON IN AQUARIUS – August 20, 2013 and SPECIAL OFFERINGS until August 31, 2013

FULL MOON IN AQUARIUS – August 20, 2013
Full Moon energy can intensify our feelings and also bring some situations to a crisis point. When the Moon is in the mental sign of Aquarius – we can feel emotionally disengaged. With the Sun still in the fire sign of Leo – we are called to be in our hearts. Exploring ways to join mind and heart is a dynamic that can lead to feelings of inner peace. Whatever challenges arise – this is a time to evaluate actions, thoughts, and plans that may have been initiated at this past New Moon in Leo, on August 6th.

Now is the time to fine –tune your course of action and work toward a sense of completion by the end of this Lunar Cycle – and begin anew during the upcoming New Moon in Virgo on September 5, 2013.

MERCURY Moving from LEO to VIRGO
There will be a noticeable shift in how we work and communicate when Mercury completes its cycle in Leo and moves into Virgo on August 24. It will be easier to focus and work diligently on any project that includes all forms of media. Writing applications, filling out forms, editing any materials – written or video or audio – will be easier at this time. It will be important to watch your internal dialogues since you may tend to think of a long list of things to worry about!! If and when you begin to fret – just know that it’s your busy mind only looking for something to fuss about. Remember the bigger picture and know that in 100 years – those little things won’t matter!!

VENUS in LIBRA
Venus entered Libra on August 17th and will remain in that sign until September 11th, when it will move into Scorpio. Venus is at home in Libra – where creating and appreciating beauty is enhanced. Relationships are easier now as we can listen to one another and value differing points of view. Mediation and reconciliation can bring harmony and good feelings to the forefront.

MARS in CANCER until August 29, 2013
Feelings can be very passionate and even dramatic. Digestive issues may arise. It’s important to get centred before eating. Also mealtimes should be peaceful. It’s important to schedule any issues that arise – to be dealt with – well before or after eating.

URANUS Squaring PLUTO
Keep in mind that during these times of upheaval and change (Uranus squaring Pluto) there are also opportunities for innovative thinking and action. How can you contribute to building sustainable foundations – in your life and in your community?

The POWER and VALUE of ASTROLOGY
We all experience easy and difficult cycles in our lives. Astrology helps clarify the nature of the struggle. What are our strengths and where do we get stuck? What are the timings for the beginning and ending of each cycle? What strategies can we use to help ourselves? Deeper self-knowledge is vital for developing compassion for ourselves and for knowing “this too shall pass” and WHEN!!

I look forward to hearing from you!

July 22, 2013 – FULL MOON IN AQUARIUS and SPECIAL OFFERINGS until August 31, 2013

FULL MOON IN AQUARIUS – July 22, 2013

 The Sun touches into very early Leo, while the Moon enters early Aquarius  on July 22, in the early afternoon (East coast time). Leo rules the heart and brings forward our generous and fun-loving natures. The Aquarian Moon can be intellectual and undemonstrative. Balancing head and heart is our way to maximize the benefits of this Sun/Moon combination.

SUBLIME GRAND TRINE in WATER – July 10 – 25, 2013

Jupiter in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio, and Neptune in Pisces are forming a special harmonious triangle (Grand Trine) until July 25.

Water is the element related to emotion, intuitive knowing and flowing with what’s happening within and around us. Because we can be more in touch with our feelings now, it’s important to take the time to be reflective and listen for the inner wisdom that’s available to us. Journaling can also be helpful – writing down our thoughts and feelings as they occur.

This is the time for dreaming bigger dreams and anchoring them into our consciousness. It may be that we remember what excited and enthused us when we were younger and we let it go for “practical reasons.”  Now is the time to bring these memories forward and  if we find ourselves enthused and happy – why not take some steps to actualize them?  Saturn in Scorpio can anchor these memories and transform them into new activities or plans and make them realizable.

Jupiter’s energy is very expansive – and when in Cancer – it’s about coming home to ourselves and daring to picture larger possibilities for ourselves and what we can bring to the world. This is a good time to be aware of our old limiting beliefs that may be repeating themselves when we want to get out of our usual patterns – it’s important to recognize and dissolve them.  If you hear yourself using terms like “I can’t” or “I should” or “It’s impossible” when you’re thinking or speaking of a new plan or desire or hope -  acknowledge these negative patterns – and replace them with “what if I can” or “I will no longer “should” on myself” or “it’s really possible.”  Let’s welcome our new aspirations and engage positively with them.

Finally, Neptune in Pisces forms the third point of this Grand Trine and contributes it’s boundless spiritual energies into this mix. It nurtures our altruistic natures.  This Grand Trine period is a precious time to elevate our thoughts and feelings, accessing our natural creativity and allowing our hearts to guide us.

URANUS in ARIES squaring PLUTO in CAPRICORN

We are still feeling the under-current of Uranus in Aries in a tense relationship with Pluto in Capricorn. This pattern may stimulate up-and-down emotional patterns that upsets our serene Water Trine. Uranus in fiery Aries is very volatile – it’s important to count till 10 or take a few deep breaths when we’re upset –  so we can avoid dumping this energy on others.  Uranus is the energy of revolution on one level and evolution on a higher level.  Uranus brings the energy of breaking through old systems – represented by Pluto in Capricorn. Anything on  false or weak foundations is collapsing right now. Example – American cities declaring bankruptcy – newest case is Detroit.  Most of the old ways of running things – economic, political, environmental, all over the world are bankrupt – needing fresh sustainable ideas and solutions. In our personal lives, where do we need to make systemic changes- for a healthier and more truly rewarding life?

Below is the schedule for the remaining exact squares between Uranus and Pluto.

New Moon in Cancer and SPECIAL OFFERINGS until July 31

WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE…

There’s still LOTS of watery energies affecting us right now.  The Sun, Jupiter, Mercury, Saturn and Neptune are all in Water signs – making this a time for nurturing ourselves and others -putting aside our analytical minds filled with our ever-busy thoughts.  Now’s the time to rely more on our intuitive wisdom.  Also, some of us may be feeling an overflow of emotions –perhaps for no particular reasons.

NEW MOON in CANCER

The NEW MOON brings the energy for new beginnings – perhaps healing a relationship with friends or family members or making a commitment to widen our circle and to help others in need of whatever we can offer.  The Moon, being the ruler of Cancer, enhances the power of this New Moon’s influence especially with so much water energies arising now.

MERCURY CONJUNCT SUN & MOON

Mercury joins the Cancer Sun and Moon for the next couple of days – still moving retrograde (backwards relative to the position of the Sun) until July 20, when it will “reverse” its course and move forward again until it enters the sign of Leo, on August 9.  When mental Mercury is in Cancer –  emotions can overcome reason.  It’s best remind ourselves not to take things personally if, for example,  others have different opinions from ours.  Cancer rules the stomach – and it’s helpful to tune in to our “gut feeling” -   useful information may be found there.

GRAND TRINE with JUPITER IN CANCER, SATURN in SCORPIO & NEPTUNE IN PISCES

From approximately July 8-28, these three major Planets will be making an auspicious triangle with one another.  Expansive Jupiter, aligns with pragmatic Saturn and spiritual/altruistic Neptune.  Saturn in Scorpio is a 2 – 3 year cycle when we can benefit by delving beneath our surface feelings and using this time for healing.  With this GRAND TRINE, we can use the grounding energy of Saturn to manifest our spiritual and altruistic impulses by taking some practical steps to nurture others or to start a project that we’ve been dreaming about.

URANUS in ARIES SQUARING PLUTO in CAPRICORN

There’s still ongoing tension between URANUS in the Fire sign of Aries and PLUTO in the Earth sign of Capricorn.  Uranus in Aries brings volatile energy – with impatience to break down what is no long working and break through to new explorations, solutions, ideas.  Pluto in Capricorn is associated with deep foundational issues and systems and structures.  People are taking to the streets in many parts of the world wanting new governments and new systems that are not corrupt and that are fair and equitable.  Since all of us have this recurring square in our personal charts – the main changes to make first are within – to release ourselves from the conditionings of the past and let new information and new ways of being come in.  Below is the schedule for the remaining exact squares between Uranus and Pluto.

SUMMER SOLSTICE – June 21 and FULL MOON in CAPRICORN – June 23. and SPECIAL OFFERINGS until June 30

There’s LOTS of cosmic energies affecting us right now. The Sun, Jupiter, Mercury, Venus, Saturn and Neptune are all in Water signs – a cycle where intuition and creativity and emotional expressions are on the front burner. There is harmony between these celestial bodies – all being in the same element – creating an atmosphere of nurturing – taking steps to care for our emotional needs, as well as our personal spaces, and of our beleaguered and beloved Planet Earth. Those of you who are Water Signs – Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces – or have significant planets in Water – are “in your element!” Here are some of the details.

SUMMER SOLSTICE – June 21, 2013

Today is the longest day of the year. The Summer Solstice is celebrated by Indigenous peoples all over the world. This is the time for activity and change and awakening to embrace this healing light. It’s time to celebrate the Earth and all living things upon it. In Canada, National Aboriginal Day is celebrated on the Solstice, acknowledging and respecting and reconciling with the First Peoples.

FULL MOON in CAPRICORN – Sunday, June 23, 2013

During the Summer Solstice, the Sun will move into the Sign of Cancer and on June 23, the Moon in Capricorn will be exactly opposite the Sun – time of the Full Moon. This also happens to be the largest Full Moon of 2013. We are moving into a gentler time as the Sun in Cancer will bring in a focus for nurturing, enjoying home and moving more into heart-centered energy. During the Full Moon situations may arise that bring issues to a crisis point. There may be emotional eruptions as challenges may come to a head. It’s good to remember to take a few deep breaths before responding to another, rather that reacting quickly and say things we may regret later.

JUPITER MOVES INTO CANCER – June 27, 2013

Jupiter spends one year in each sign of the Zodiac and on June 27, it will move into the Sign of Cancer and be there until July 17, 2014. Jupiter has been in the mental Sign of Gemini this past year and has stimulated much communication, spreading of ideas, and an expansion of global awareness. In Cancer, Jupiter will emphasize feeling rather than mental activities. There will be more involvement with women’s issues, with environmental concerns, with community, children, expression of emotions and so on.

MERCURY in CANCER– June 1 – August 9, 2013

Mercury, the Planet of communication, made a big shift on June 1, moving from the mental energy of Gemini into the emotional energy of Cancer. We’re now apt to think more with our right intuitive brains rather than the more rational left side. It’s important to remember to not take things personally if others disagree with our views or belief systems. We are spiritual Being living a human life. We are far greater than our opinions or belief systems!

Mercury will go Retrograde between June 16 and July 20, and then will begin “moving forward” again and transition into the sign of Leo on August 9. We’re already in that energy cycle as many can feel the retrograde energy several days before and after its cycle. It’s important to back up our computer files, double-check on things like driving directions, plane schedules etc.

VENUS in CANCER: June 4 – June 28, 2013

Venus in Cancer brings in receptive feminine energy – and a desire for security. We may find ourselves wanting to nurture others and take the time to socialize, relax with friends, have a meal together, etc. It’s also a good time to begin or continue a creative project as Venus in Cancer is in harmony with Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces – creating a Grand Trine (triangle) in water. This combination of creative energies is wonderful for dreaming, visioning and with Saturn in the mix, it’s also an excellent time to get things done. Venus will be in Cancer until June 28, when it will enter the fire sign of Leo – and the energy will shift again.

SATURN in SCORPIO: October 6, 2012 to September 19, 2015.

For those of us born with Planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, etc.) in the Fixed Signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, these can be trying times where we’re challenged at the core of our very Being – needing to do our personal work to overcome obstacles and grow and change.

Saturn in Scorpio until January 2015, is calling on us to dig deeper into our emotional foundations and explore relationships with ourselves and with others. We can come out of this cycle much stronger and steadier.

Uranus in Aries Squaring Pluto in Capricorn – 7 cycles through to March 31, 2015.

This square continues a time of breakdown of systems – personal and global – that no longer work for us. False foundations are revealed in political, social and economic patterns. When this 90 degree angle is exact – the pressure peaks. Uranus and Pluto both move very slowly. Their effects are felt for weeks before and after the exact square. As things break apart – light enters and new solutions can and are being explored. The next exact square will occur on November 1, 2013.

Schedule of Exact Squares:
June 24, 2012
September 19, 2012
May 20, 2013
November 1, 2013
April 21, 2014
December 15, 2014
March 17, 2015

With all of this energy, challenges and breakthroughs happening, you might well want an Astrological reading to assist you to understand and incorporate these cycles into your lives in a positive way – for your personal growth and well-being. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

New Moon in Gemini – June 8, 2013 and Special Offerings until June 30, 2013

There is still a LOT of cosmic energy affecting us at the moment with a few recent shifts. Here are some of the details.

NEW MOON in GEMINI – June 8, 2013

The Sun and Moon are at the same degree of Gemini (NEW MOON) at 11:56 am EDT. They join Mars and Jupiter that are currently moving through Gemini. Mars in Gemini stimulates communication – so many of us will be actively sharing information, coming up with new ideas, e-mailing everyone we know, and find ourselves very creatively engaged. Jupiter in Gemini can help us stretch our every-day ideas into wider perspectives that can be very beneficial for us. You may find this energy to be mind-expanding and exciting. Jupiter will remain in Gemini until June 27, and then will enter the Sign of Cancer.

Energy Shift: Mercury and Venus now in Cancer

Just this past week, Mercury and Venus moved out of Gemini and into Cancer – bringing emotional energy to all the mental activity still going on. What can this mean? First of all we may find ourselves moving more into our intuitive right brains and thinking more in terms of association of ideas, coming up with past memories, perhaps missing some close friends and/or family members etc. If someone disagrees with us it’s important to step back and not take it personally (Mercury in Cancer) – remembering that every one of us is far greater than our belief systems and opinions – we are Spiritual Beings here on our human journey.

Mercury will be in Cancer for several weeks – and during this interval it will go retrograde June 26 and go direct on July 20 and remain in Cancer until August 9 when it will enter Leo.

Venus in Cancer brings in receptive feminine energy – and a desire for security. We may find ourselves wanting to nurture others and take the time to socialize, relax with friends, have a meal together, etc. It’s also a good time to begin or continue a creative project as Venus in Cancer is in harmony with Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces – creating a Grand Trine (triangle) in water. This combination of creative energies is wonderful for dreaming, visioning and with Saturn in the mix, it’s also an excellent time to get things done. Venus will be in Cancer until June 28, when it will enter the fire sign of Leo – and the energy will shift again.

Saturn in Scorpio: October 6, 2012 to September 19, 2015.

For those of us born with Planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, etc.) in the Fixed Signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, these can be trying times where we’re challenged at the core of our very Being – needing to do our personal work to overcome obstacles and grow and change.

Saturn in Scorpio until January 2015, is calling on us to dig deeper into our emotional foundations and explore relationships with ourselves and with others. We can come out of this cycle much stronger and steadier.

Uranus in Aries Squaring Pluto in Capricorn – 7 cycles through to March 31, 2015.

This square continues a time of breakdown of systems – personal and global – that no longer work for us. False foundations are revealed in political, social and economic patterns. When this 90 degree angle is exact – the pressure peaks. Uranus and Pluto both move very slowly. Their effects are felt for weeks before and after the exact square. Currently, these Planets are still in a tense relationship until approximately mid-June. As things break apart – light enters and new solutions can and are being explored.

Full Moon in Scorpio – April 25, 2013

Sun In Taurus/Full Moon In Scorpio with Partial lunar Eclipse
The energetic patterns today are profound and complex, setting the tone for the remainder of this month and into May. By now, Venus and Mars (as well as the Sun) have moved from the fiery energy of Aries into the fixed earth sign of Taurus. Mars in Taurus is next to the Sun right now and we may be feeling impatient and raring to go – where and when to go is not so clear!!

Scorpio/Taurus Energy Patterns
Today, the Full Moon in Scorpio is exactly opposite the Sun in Taurus. Adding to this combination, Saturn in Scorpio is exactly next to the Moon and is also opposing the Sun. Saturn will be playing a dominant role during the next few days. In addition to opposing the Sun, Saturn will also be opposing Mars until approximately May 5. Saturn represents structure and authority. When opposite the Sun and Mars – many of us may be feeling stopped or stymied in terms of moving forward to our goals. We also may feel irritable and impatient with delays – and with other people’s unwillingness to do what we want them to do! Today with the exact Sun/Moon/Saturn/Mars combination – some unexpressed frustrations may come to a crisis point. Best for today and for the next 10 days or so – to be still and observant, rather than resisting or opposing. Scorpio and Taurus are both fixed signs with a lot of inertia. Instead of spending a lot of energy pushing the immovable – we can choose to calm ourselves and stay as centred as possible. This is a time to practice patience, and remember that this is a very temporary cycle.

Lunar Eclipse over Scorpio Moon
Additionally, today there is a partial eclipse over the Moon (Earth casting a shadow between the Sun and Moon). Our emotions (Moon in Scorpio) may feel temporarily in shadow and harder to access. When the Moon is in Scorpio – we tend to be more introspective and empathetic. With Saturn next to the Moon – we may be feeling stuck or blocked or confined. Saturn is also the great teacher, who’s energy can help in a positive way – if we use this energy to pause, reflect and assess. Scorpio has three different symbols associated with its transformative potential – the first is the Scorpion stinging itself, the second is the Eagle flying high and getting a better perspective, and finally – the magical Phoenix rising out from the ashes of the past – and transforming into its radiant spiritually charged form. We all have the potential to shift into higher levels of consciousness and rebirth ourselves.

Uranus Squaring Pluto
We’ll have exact squares coming up in May between Uranus and Pluto. Uranus in Aries is very flammable energy – breakdowns can be sudden and intense. Breakthroughs can shed light on systems, organizations, etc. that need transformation.. Pluto in Capricorn has to do with deeply examining foundational matters – where the foundations are weak – eg political, economic, environmental – if their foundations are weak and unsustainable, they may collapse as Uranus energies will crack things wide open.

What We can Do that’s Positive for Ourselves and Others
The best thing we can do for ourselves and others is to stay focussed and mindful – lessening our impatience to get on with it! This is a powerful time for transformation – it’s inevitable and it’s best to be as flexible as possible and be available to go through the doors as they open and reveal what’s beyond.

With all of this energy, challenge and breakthroughs happening, you might well want an Astrological reading to assist you to optimize these times for yourself, your loved ones and your life! I look forward to helping you understand and appreciate your life patterns and explore ways to maximize your potential.

New Moon in Aries: April 10, 2013

We’re finally moving past the watery Pisces deluge of the past few weeks — with several planets now moving from Pisces into Aries. At one point, six heavenly bodies were moving through PISCES! These included the March 11th New Moon in Pisces as well as the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Neptune. After musing, mulling things over, swimming in pools of dreamy water — we’re moving into a very different energy field – now full of the fire of Aries!

Aries is the sign of taking action and moving forward! It’s the energy of taking a risk and leading the way! The NEW Moon in Aries will occur early morning of April 10th. The Sun and Moon, Venus and Mars, will all be very close together between 22-24 degrees of Aries. Meanwhile Uranus is moving through Aries for the next several years — bringing many changes and upheavals to make room for the new. This is the time to pull out the stops and be actively participating in life and enjoying the excitement of discovery and creating new beginnings.

Mercury is still in Pisces and will be moving through Aries from April 15th to May 1st. It will enter Taurus on May 2nd . When Mercury is in Aries, our ideas, thoughts and communications will be speeding up. It’s important to take a moment to think before responding or reacting — as tact is needed to modify the hasty words that once out, can’t be retrieved. When Mercury is in Aries – we can be quite straightforward and honest, and impatient with others who may be slow responders. It’s important to temper our temper!!

Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn are both moving into an exact square to each other (tense alignment) throughout the month of May. Lots more changes are coming! Uranus helps break through existing structures while Pluto digs down into shifting foundational systems and issues. This combination may be very uncomfortable for any personal or collective beliefs and structures that are on shaky foundations. And — when breakthrough occurs — light gets in! Creative alternatives can and will arise. This continuing series of Uranus-Pluto squares will be occurring until May 2015.

With all of this energy, challenge and breakthroughs happening, you might well want an Astrological reading to assist you to optimize these times for yourself, your loved ones and your life! I look forward to sharing my readings with you!

NEW MOON IN PISCES – March 11, 2013 – Watery Energies Continue their Deluge!!

Water, water everywhere!! Tomorrow afternoon around 4 pm (Eastern Daylight Savings Time) the Moon and Sun will be conjunct at approximately 20º Pisces.

Mercury Retrograde will be at 8º Pisces, Venus at 16º Pisces, Mars at 29º Pisces, Neptune at 3º Pisces and Chiron at 10º Pisces. When you count them up — 7 heavenly bodies are in PISCES! Saturn continues its journey through the fixed water sign of Scorpio and tomorrow will be at 11º Scorpio. Saturn will be stabilizing some of these energies, as it’ll be in harmony with Mercury, and Chiron for the next few days. Great time to write poetry, songs, music. Good time to sit quietly and literally “go with the flow.”

What to do with all this water? It depends on your birth charts planetary placements. For some of us, the energies of water will feel natural, flowing and creative. For others, it may be very frustrating to find ourselves unfocussed. We’re floating in right brain energies —a great time to check our intuition. With this much watery energies—grief may show up—to be purged (that’s a good thing!). I found myself grieving certain personal losses this past week and thus cleared out a lot of stuck energy I didn’t even know I had! I feel much better now. Mentally—during this period especially—I am giving it all up to Creator and asking for guidance.

On the positive side, the Sun and Moon and other planets in Pisces can soften our perceptions and sensitize us to the feelings of others.

The only Planets that are not in water include, Jupiter in Gemini (air) , Uranus in Aries (fire) and Pluto in Capricorn (earth). Uranus and Pluto are moving into an exact square (tense alignment) through the month of May—lots more changes coming. Uranus helps break through existing structures and Pluto digs down into foundational systems and issues. This combination may be very uncomfortable for any personal or collective beliefs and structures that are on shaky foundations. And, when breakthrough occurs, light gets in. Creative alternatives can and will arise. This continuing series of Uranus-Pluto squares will be occurring until May 2015.

As well, watch for a sharp increase in energies—as Mars leaves Pisces and enters the fire sign of Aries on March 13. When Mars conjuncts Uranus in Aries—between March 17-27— abrupt changes can occur and move things quickly forward. This impulsive fiery energy can make all that water sizzle! Please drive carefully and handle knives and other sharp objects with care.

MERCURY Retrograde goes Direct on March 17. Again—it’s time to make sure your data is backed-up! Widen your tolerance for unexpected delays in all areas connected with information and transportation. There is a way to maximize the positive side of this retrograde cycle. It’s a good time to review projects, plans, and arrangements. It’s advantageous to take time to be more reflective and slow down the speedy energies that can sap our strength.

Please feel free to call or e-mail me with any questions you may have and certainly you can share this email with others. I look forward to hearing from you.

Make sure you’re on Daylight Savings time (Spring ahead).

Bright comet ‘lighting sky’ as it flies by Earth

C/2011 L4 Pan-StarrsStargazers could enjoy a rare spectacle as a bright comet swings into the Northern Hemisphere.

The icy mass, called C/2011 L4 Pan-Starrs, should be visible with binoculars or a telescope from 8 March.

But in the following days, it will become even brighter and could be seen with the naked eye.

Astronomers in the Southern Hemisphere have already been treated to a fly past, with reports that the body was as bright as stars in the Plough.

Mark Bailey, director of the Armagh Observatory in Northern Ireland, said: “We have great hopes for this comet. Of course we are always very cautious – even now we don’t know how bright it is going to get – but we are keeping out fingers crossed.”

February 25, 2013 – Full Moon in Virgo

FULL Moon in Virgo – February 25, 2013
Today, the Full Moon is in Virgo, the third Full Moon of 2013. When the Moon is full, the Sun is in its opposite sign, and is now in Pisces. This combination is complex as most Full Moon energies are. Virgo, ruled by the intellectual sign of Mercury, speaks of discernment, precision, and analytical energies. When the Feminine energy of the Moon is in Virgo, we may tend to intellectualize our feelings, analyze them, worry about them – wanting to understand them. Our feelings become the content of our minds, rather than our hearts. On the positive side – we may find ourselves able to be dispassionate. In this way, we’re more able to understand our motives, our feelings, and able to delve into the origins of our emotional patterns. This can prove to be a lot more helpful than riding up and down in emotional currents without a rudder!

The Masculine energy of the Sun is in the water sign of Pisces, the dreamer, the mystic, the altruist, the Creator . Water is the medium for our feelings – and when the Sun is in Pisces, our sense of direction can become diffuse, other-worldly, unfocussed. On the positive side, the Sun in Pisces can soften our perceptions, and sensitize us to the feelings of others.

MERCURY Retrograde: February 23 – March 16, 2013
I’ve had e-mails from some of you already feeling the energies of Mercury Retrograde – almost a week before it began. Again – it’s time to make sure your data is backed-up and that you widen your tolerance for unexpected delays in all areas connected with information and transportation. There is a way to maximize the positive side of this retrograde cycle. It’s a good time to review projects, plans, and arrangements. It’s advantageous to take time to be more reflective and slow down the speedy energies that can sap our strength.

WATERY Energies coalesce this month and next
In addition to the Sun in Pisces until March 20th, Mars, Mercury, Venus (enters Pisces on Feb. 27th ) Neptune and Chiron are all in Pisces for the next 3 weeks. Saturn is slowly moving through the water sign of Scorpio until the end of 2014. The only planets that are not in water include, Jupiter in Gemini (air) , Uranus in Aries (fire) and Pluto in Capricorn(earth). What to do with all this water? It depends on your birth charts planetary placements. For some of us, the energies of water will feel natural and flowing and creative. For others, it may be very frustrating to find ourselves unfocussed – with misunderstandings being quite common. We’re floating in right brain energies… to compensate it’s good to review, for example, what we’ve heard in a conversation, to make sure our assumptions and understandings are in synch!

PLUTO/URANUS Squares
Pluto and Uranus have separated for the moment. The next exact squares between Uranus and Pluto occur later this year in May. Uranus is associated with the energies of breakdown and breakthrough – revolution and evolution. Pluto is associated with foundational issues and systems. This continuing on-and-off series of Uranus-Pluto squares will be complete by Spring 2015. In an energetic way – we’re continuing the energy of Pluto conjunct Uranus that occurred in the mid-60’s – it’s time to stand up, for example, for justice, equal rights for men and women, as well as each of us expressing our own authenticity as individuals, as groups, as social movements.

Please feel free to call or e-mail me with any questions you may have and certainly you can share this email with others. I look forward to hearing from you. Keep looking up!!
