Chrysalis

July 12, 2018

This evening we have a New Moon and solar eclipse, with the Sun and Moon together in Cancer. This new Moon is more intense since the Sun and Moon directly oppose Pluto. There’s a pull to balance power and fragility, and the key is letting go of the belief that the two are mutually exclusive. The power in fragility is what we are being asked to work with and respect. There is a defining quality to this moment in time for all of us with the Moon’s nodal axis standing still. Take time to stand in it- are your actions and beliefs in line with your goals and desires. Find what nourishes your soul and set intentions around that. We are letting things go, or should be, as we work to elevate ourselves beyond our current incarnation. Transformation is not comfortable but is necessary to take us to the next step....

Hard Work Ahead

June 27, 2018

Tonight’s full Moon is in Capricorn with the Sun in Cancer. Because of the Moon’s proximity to Saturn and it being the last planet the Moon has made contact with, not to mention the Moon is in Saturn’s sign, what we’re looking at are issues around responsibilities,  competency, hard work and accountability. Well- we’re not just looking at them casually when there’s that much energy in the same place it’s more like an urgent cry for attention in these areas of life and also in our character. We’ve been reevaluating these things in our lives since Saturn stationed during the second week of April. What the full Moon brings is clarity around what needs to go out of our lives to be more able to move into these Saturnian qualities effectively. I know this doesn’t sound fun, especially at the beginning of summer, but embracing it will allow the coming months…hell years…to run more smoothly....

Inaugural Horoscopes

June 21, 2018

Happy Solstice! If you’re in the north you’re enjoying the years longest day, and if you’re in the south you are gifted with the knowledge that from today the light is increasing. Enjoy my first set of Consult the Sky horoscopes as my solstice gift. XO  Cancer- This is your time of year! Enjoy the Sun beaming through your sign. There may be more emotional introspection than even you care to partake in right now. With your responsibilities glaring at you from across the room, now is a good time to reassess how to approach being a grown-up. I know it’s very tempting to escape under the covers with a liter of ice cream to binge watch something utterly distracting, but that decision will bite you in the butt down the line. Trust me, re-framing how you want to be a responsible adult will have pay offs later....

Please Release Me

June 18, 2018

I’ve mentioned before, the current astrological influences have been hard on some of us.  I had a particularly crappy week. No energy, no motivation, and a splash of self loathing- it’s been super fun. I finally realized the culprit again was Neptune (ok, not just Neptune, but God that guy drives me nuts). I’ve been watching it slowly creep up on my ascendant degree- your ascendant is what you project out to the world. Mine is Pisces, so I’m already a little hazy to people some times. I’m also very empathic. Neptune is a psychic-y planet and in Pisces it’s magnified, so I’ve been fascinated and terrified about what the conjunction to my ascendant will bring in April 2020. Perhaps I’ll become a shape-shifter, or just disappear in a puff of my own hot air. I was so fixated on my ascendant, I overlooked the fact the it was making a hard aspect to my natal Mars....

Through the Fog

June 1, 2018

Photo by Alexandru-Bogdan Ghita I was running my usual scan of Apps yesterday- Instagram, Twitter and Facebook- and saw a few references to this lovely grand water trine we were experiencing. This happens when we have planets at or close to the same degree and in all the signs of an element. So we can have grand Water, Fire, Earth or Air trines. Right now we have Venus in Cancer, Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces. A friend had texted and mentioned how lovely this planetary energy was and I replied that it felt sad. “It’s like there’s all this promise, but since Venus aspects an unhappy Jupiter -people are grasping at straws of hope it feels like, and then Venus trines Neptune and the hope/inspiration floats away like a beautiful smoke image: like a Patronus. It gets closest to perfecting at the tail end of this full Moon phase which is desperate to hold on to the light…but I may be imprinting.”...

Good Luck and Be Safe Out There

March 30, 2018

It’s chocolate time! Whether you celebrate something or not, this weekend is usually an excuse for families to get together. There’s a lot going on in the sky right now and much of it has the potential to be challenging. With the Sun and retrograde Mercury in Aries on a crash course to each other, there’s room for ego getting in the way of communication and miscommunication. Friday and Saturday will have people wanting to play nice as the Moon is in Libra, but  in the middle of it all the Moon will be full -heightening emotions encouraging us to release unhealthy social attitudes. On Sunday, things get complicated as the Moon moves into deep and moody Scorpio. You might find you or others want to get to the root of long held emotional crap.  With Mars and Saturn having an important meeting  in the same degree in Capricorn, I’m going to say that disagreements will be productive in the long run, but none of this will be much fun....

Curb Your Enthusiasm

March 22, 2018

We’re in that time of year again. Mercury is stationing and about to enter its retrograde cycle. Mercury is in the sign of Aries which can be impulsive and quick thinking. It’s not long on memory, but quick with an idea. Emotional reactions may seem out of proportion to the situation. Some people will feel like their verbal filter is more like a sieve with things flying past your teeth faster than you can put the brakes on. I predict some back pedaling in some of our futures. There is a need to think before we speak at this time and it will not be easy, therefor this period will be marked with arguments and apologies. There will be times during this 4 week period where all of this can lead to productivity and necessary change, so look for ways to use this energy to move you forward at the end of the cycle....

A Whole Lotta Steam

March 15, 2018

We’re coming into an active weekend astrologically. We’ve been busy for the last couple of weeks with Jupiter having gone retrograde and Venus and Mercury moving into feisty Aries. These changes are being punctuated by a New Moon perfecting Saturday morning in these here parts. This New Moon has the Sun and Moon connecting with Chiron in the end degrees of Pisces, it’s time to set intentions involving what you’ve learned from having empathy, setting limits (boundaries) and listening to your intuition. Trusting in the flow of life and having faith you’re in the right place doing what you’re supposed to do is the message. Connected to Chiron, we must have this faith and trust regardless – or in spite of – how we may have been hurt in the past. Having Mercury and Venus joined in Aries says to do life with conviction and in your own way....

Here Comes a Full Moon

March 1, 2018

We have a full Moon in Virgo hitting today.  Virgo is about assimilation, health and efficiency. Get rid of what you don’t need in your diet. Take a good look at how you can trim the fat in every area of your life. “Less is more” is a Virgo phrase. Use this as your guiding principal as you decide what you don’t need in your emotional life right now. Full Moons have the potential to shine a flood light on what needs tweaking. It’ll be uncomfortable for many with that flood of fish energy on the opposing side. With Venus, Mercury, the Sun and Neptune all in Pisces, I’ve used that abundance of fishy water to get healthy in the pool. The Virgo Moon wants you to take care of yourself, but don’t waste all of your time on it or it’ll never last. Love your imperfections and remember- you are as perfect as you can be in this moment....

How I Entered This Dimension

March 1, 2018

Astrology started out as an interest for me in my teens. A friend brought the giant Encyclopedia of Astrology to school one day, and over the next few weeks, in our spare time, we manually calculated our astrological charts. I don’t know how we did, but we had gotten them right. What I learned about myself then was fun and interesting and a little enlightening. I read things about myself that made sense, and made me feel less of a star shaped peg in a triangular hole –  it resonated. Four years later I saw a professional astrologer. In that hour, I cried, I laughed, and I felt understood for the first time ever – I was hooked. Over the next 25 years my career was as a hairstylist, so I had a captive audience in the gathering of astrological information. I noticed patterns in Sun signs I’d never read in books, so I knew there had to be much more I didn’t know yet....
