Healing the Feminine - North Node in Cancer

This is a talk I gave for EA Zoom Meetings just before the Summer Solstice. Much of what we are collectively working through is purging the conditioning of the patriarchal domination and suppression of the feminine for the past 6000 years. More info can be found at the School of Evolutionary Astrology message board. Where we have the South Node, Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn and the opposing North Node of the Moon in Cancer will show our process of reconditioning and returning to the Goddess.

With love,


Gemini Season - Cycles within Cycles, Worlds within Worlds

The Sun moves into Gemini May 21st at 1am PDT. Whenever we engage with Gemini energy, we are learning the relativity of Truth. We are regaining perspective and innocence, and learning how to communicate to get our needs met in fresh ways. We are learning how to play with life again, to renew our childish enthusiasm for life in all its forms. 


Scroll down to keep reading or watch video version here.

We can consciously evolve this season through being playful with our perspective, to be able to witness the cycles within cycles and the worlds within worlds. We can get out of any ideas that there is one fixed way of looking at everything. It’s time for a refresher and illumination of all that we are learning and celebrating in our lives, even if we are also purging, transforming and evolving as we constantly are.


The Moon will freshly enter Capricorn the day the Sun moves into Gemini, about to revamp our emotional awareness on all the Capricornian purging we’ve been doing long term with Saturn, Pluto and the South Node. I feel this is an important time to share some awareness on just how the smaller cycles align within the larger ones, as we are always looking at cycles within cycles within cycles. You can look at how this is represented in other forms of astrology, like the Mayan calendar, where you can physically see how it is interpreted and organized, all wheels within wheels on top of other wheels.


Having this framework of understanding makes it possible to see how we can use our awareness of long-term energies that we’re working with, but with the shifting of each season to see how we are taking a different angle or approach on how to work through the long-term major shifts.


Looking at the Capricornian deconditioning and deprogramming we’re all doing and acknowledging the long-term resonance is important in order to understand the foundation of any time period we’re looking at for this year and into 2020, and even beyond that as even though the nodes and Saturn will shift into their next respective signs at that time, Pluto will still be in Capricorn until 2024.


I often express my gratitude to the cosmic system as its been divinely set up, as we don’t need to experience all of our karma or evolution all at once. We get to spend solid amounts of time exploring each archetype, over and over again, just in varying combinations, and everything always moves along a continuum. We know that each sign’s experiences build upon the wisdom, wounds and wishes of those that came before. This is how we are continuously evolving not only ourselves, but the very archetypes we identify with. 


The relationship between the Sun in Gemini this month and the other planets weaves a story based on illumination, and finding new information. As we may have found ourselves in a lot of darkness over specifically what needs to change, or what we need to do differently to replace those patterns and routines we’ve been shifting away from or newly into, this Gemini season can offer information that can help us understand how to make some practical changes.


To start, Mercury aligns with the Sun on day 1 of this season. Anytime Mercury or any planet conjuncts the Sun, we experience a type of renewal through the fires of our consciousness, as the Sun literally burns up anything that is not part of the newly forming cycle. This can include thought patterns or perspectives or interpretations that we had been living by for the past little while, since the last Mercury Retrograde season. 


Sometimes this can feel a bit like burning up our ego, as we often consider our thoughts to be us. If there’s something you’ve been mentally wrestling with but unable to find resolution, this conjunction can be that force of nature to simply eliminate it from your though process, to make space to being anew with more clarity. It can also help us to re-identify our thoughts with our true purpose of the moment, the Sun, which can keep us more in the here and now rather than keeping our past mental confusions on repeat mode.


Mercury will oppose Jupiter just 10 days into Gemini season on May 31, while Venus in Taurus will trine Saturn in Capricorn, again bringing into focus the Capricorn deprogramming and reprogramming we are all doing. The Mercury/Jupiter opposition with Jupiter still retrograde will bring up any ways we are wrestling Truth within us. Mercury inevitably surrenders to Jupiter, so wherever we have been fighting the truth within ourselves or in our communications with others will be revealed to a higher way of seeing and knowing the situation.


The Venus/Saturn trine between Taurus and Capricorn will again bring up more conscious focus on how we are realigning our value systems by reflecting on how they were shaped in the past conditioning. This can look different for everyone, but with the position of Saturn conjunct the South Node and Pluto, this likely looks like some type of letting go of material attachments that don’t serve us, or ways of viewing ourselves in relation to the material world. We may need to step more into the mystery for a little while over the course of this Gemini season, to be able to let go of our attachments to be able to see more clearly what we really need to live our purpose and be happy in the long run. 


The New Moon in Gemini will be June 3rd, on the same day as the Venus/Pluto trine. This brings an even more heightened energy around purging material attachments, and making more space for soul level desires and truth, and coming to the close of a cycle of attachment. This can also be in relationships, fully coming to terms with any assets or liabilities that we’ve attached ourselves to, and evaluating their usefulness. I know that can sound a bit cold, but the lens of Earthy practicality is required right now as we strip away what is clouding our vision. 


Remember that both Mercury and Venus are associated with the mind of God/Goddess, that Mercury is how we use and communicate the divine messages through words and logic, while Venus is the mind of God/Goddess through pictures and symbols, the feminine aspect of knowingness. 


Anything that we are letting go of in terms of our mental or material attachments is only on the individual ego level, and surrendering to the process of letting go makes more space to align with a higher version or interpretation of the divine that is needed in our lives. Sometimes we have to let go of who we thought we were, to step into who we actually are.


Mercury is moving quick this season, as he’ll zip into Cancer June 4th, and then Venus will move into Gemini June 9th. We are really moving forward quickly this season, which is Gemini’s M.O. anyways, so get ready to learn a lot of new things, be in a lot of new kinds of situations, meeting a lot of new people, and letting these chance encounters shape the new you that you are always becoming. Be aware of meeting people who may be your opposites, to help show you something that about yourself that you are working on integrating. Or to be challenged in your opinions about the world, to perhaps also find more grace and space in your worldviews. 


Mars in Cancer will trine Neptune in Pisces June 14th, while Mars will simultaneously be opposite Saturn. This bridges Saturn and Neptune even further who are already sextile each other, to find the links between our duty, responsibilities, and practical application of life (Saturn), with what inspires us and keeps us linked into a higher spiritual purpose for it all (Neptune). Mars, our action language, our passion and drive to go out into the world and get what we want, is communicating in a 3-way call with Saturn and Neptune, trying to find out the best way to take care of ourselves and find inner security (Cancer) in the process of aligning duty with inspiration.


Mercury will then come to oppose Saturn and Pluto toward the end of the season, again offering us the chance to align our thoughts with our duty to evolve, and to become the highest most aligned versions of ourselves through what we choose to mentally engage with. This could be supported by really focusing on illumination this Gemini season, rather than any escapism or running away from the truths that are staring us in the face. The more we are searching for the truth of what we need, or how to communicate our true needs, the more the divine reaches back out to us with very specific clues as to how to align our thoughts, actions and energy. 


Instead of Netflixing and chilling, get outside and roam the territory of your natural world imagination. Get creative, get curious, connect with your innocence, watch a ladybug climb through a blade of grass or feel the sensations as she climbs up your arm, refocusing your energy on the worlds within worlds and the cycles within cycles and reacquainting yourself with the simple truths of life. We can do this through intentional play. 


Finally, Gemini season ends with Neptune stationing retrograde June 21stat 18˚43’ Pisces, retrograde until November 27thto 15˚56’. So while we spend much of Gemini season getting curious about our connections with the world, using our scientific lens of intentional play to get to know ourselves better, Neptune will be taking a dive deeper into the realms of healing, unconditional love, compassion, service, and surrendering to our divine purpose here on Earth. I’ll share more about Neptune Retrograde in coming posts and videos, but for now, embracing the curiousity of Gemini can take us far into learning what we need to learn to bring clarity and aligned vision. This can really be a time of great change, and even if certain structures around us are toppling, we can do our best to celebrate our lives and our lessons. 


Many blessings to you this Gemini season,




Transforming our Point of Attraction through Trust - Full Moon in Scorpio

The Moon is Full in Scorpio May 18that 2:12pm PDT at 27˚39’. It’s that time of year to dive into our deepest interior motivations for how we attract resources in our lives. To expose anything hidden in the darkest caverns of our psyche around what we value, our priorities, and how we will allow ourselves to consciously evolve and transform. Depending on where you have the Taurus/Scorpio axis in your chart will highlight how you are transforming your values, and what this means for connecting on a deeper level to your soul. All of this is a precursor to the Sun shifting soon into Gemini May 21st, when Mercury will also enter Gemini, so first we’ll do some deep soul work to release and transform, and then we’ll get to move out into new territory of learning and exploring so that we can apply what we’re learning with this Full Moon.

Watch video here or scroll down to keep reading.

For me, the Full Moon in Scorpio is always a memorable time of year. For me being a Taurus rising, this always puts the Scorpio Full Moon on my descendant or my 7thhouse, so it illuminates relationship dynamics around resources, values, priorities, and soul level desires and motivations for the relationship, so this is something I specifically plan for diving into in all of my meditations leading up to the event, and also what I create ritual around.  For yourself, you need to reflect on the meanings of the houses this axis lies on in your chart, so that you can feel into what often seems to shift for you around this time each year. 


We get at least one Full Moon of each sign each year, sometimes two, but these are meant to be memorable times of self-illumination.  The Moon is our self-image, and reflects how we are changing and flowing with our evolutionary tides from moonth to moonth. When you collect enough of these experiences consciously, you can start to plan ahead for the coming seasons, to see how you will be peeling back another layer of the same energies, with new levels of consciousness.


At 27˚ this is the finalization of Taurus season, meaning we are finding new mastery of Taurus in ourselves and collectively. I call these the PhD degrees, where it’s likely the most challenging mental and spiritual stretch to get ourselves to a greater understanding, and then also apply it practically in our lives. 


Taurus has been and will continue to be a prominent energy for us with Uranus in Taurus. We are illuminating all of the ways our material attachments could be examined and transmuted through the Scorpionic efforts of diving into the soul to feel into what is most real and true for your life as a whole. Why are you here? Really answering that question can make the biggest difference in how you spend your time, money, resources and overall energy in your daily life, your daily grind, your efforts toward building something sustainable in your life that you can rely on, as Taurus desires. 


The Full Moon in Scorpio is the same day that Venus conjuncts Uranus, and she is in the new phase of instinctual emergence by the time of the Full Moon. 


So, let’s break down some of the basics around moon phases, and phasal relationships in general, because this is actually something that applies to all planetary pairs. We can look at the phasal relationship between each planet in our natal chart to find exactly where and how we are developing the gifts, talents and expressions of each planet, and what healing and refining we can work on in relation to those planetary functions.


If we take the planetary pair of Venus/Uranus, we can look at the combination of how Venus, our love language, point of attraction, our emotions, feminine or receptive nature, our values and priorities, how all of this relates to the functions of Uranus, which is to free us, liberate us, and emancipate us from stagnant energy. 


Now with both planets in Taurus, the inner side of Venus, this is like a triple energy of Taurus saying loud and clear, “we need to evaluate how we look at our resources, our values, our priorities, our routines, how we make money, what skills we use to pull in what we require in order to live our purpose in this life”.


With the Full Moon, this is Taurus illuminating Scorpio. This means illuminating everything that we may have hidden from even ourselves around our motivations with money, materials, and how our soul level desires interact with our physical, tangible world possessions, or perhaps how we value ourselves, our self-esteem, self-worth, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, being able to do things for ourselves. This works well with Venus in new phase to Uranus, as we can attract to us the new energies that will help us solidify what we are evaluating this Full Moon. 


The trick in working most positively with Taurus energy is to find where we are stubborn, and allow ourselves to release the control we think we need to have in order to stay secure. Often this can manifest as beliefs and ideas about what security means. We have to remember that with all the Capricorn planets, Saturn, Pluto and the South Node, we are deconditioning and deprogramming from a lot of what societal structure has dictated that we need to do. So in regards to this current season, the aspect of that deprogramming that we’re working on is deprogramming around resources, money, self-worth and everything I’ve mentioned, and noticing where does the stubbornness or reluctance to change come from? What fears may they be linked to? 


Moving through fear is what Scorpio can help us with, to learn to trust ourselves on the soul level, to bring the soul into the earthly experience, knowing they are not separate at all, that attuning ourselves with our soul level desires will actually support us in feeling soul security, which permeates into our physical experience when we are in the state of trust. Most of our fear around making changes to our routines, or how we go about attracting what we think we need in life is all linked to cultural and social programming, as well as past life karmic situations that can cause us to hold onto certain notions of what will keep us safe. 


We have to change with the world, to change with the collective, and also to get scientific with Uranus in Taurus, to see how we can better live sustainably on all levels. The physical aspect of sustainability is quite obvious, but what about the emotional, mental or spiritual aspects of sustainability in the ways we go about living our lives? Mercury being so close to conjuncting the Sun in Taurus brings in that added emphasis on the quality of our thoughts, and perhaps certain thoughts of security versus evolution that we are allowing to be transformed and transmuted to higher levels of soul authenticity. 


As much of our conscious evolution starts with noticing our thoughts, mental patterns and decision-making, we can ask ourselves what can help us emotionally evolve so that we can allow ourselves to rest in a comfortable discomfort at the edge of our evolution.


Some questions to ask: Are you giving too much of our personal resources perhaps to efforts that go wasted on some level? Or are you considering how each of your decisions around your possessions, your skills, what you need to survive and thrive in the world can be heightened to the level of soul mastery and knowing what will really get us what you want, beyond a feeling of illusory or false security? How are you using your creative energy in alignment with your soul mission? Remember that Taurus/Scorpio rules procreation as well as sensuality and sexuality, so is your sexual energy being maximized or engaged with in the most appropriate ways, you can look at tantric practices, using the kundalini energy to fully awaken and open up your energy potential. These are the kinds of questions you need to be asking yourself, and of course honoring your journey with Taurus/Scorpio up to this point. There are always deeper layers of self-awareness and this is what raising consciousness means.


You can meditate with simple questions like, “what fear do I need to let go of in order to live more in soul alignment?” or “what resources do I require to live out my purpose?” or “what subconscious emotional pattern needs to be exposed so that I can bring conscious healing to it?”


Scorpio can be extremely powerful to work with, especially when you get to work with it consciously. It is one sign that perhaps doesn’t always want to be seen, because to see something truly is to know its intentions and motivations, and therefore its power, and a shadow expression of Scorpio is to be afraid of your own power, because it often can be aligned with needing to change. Sometimes with Scorpio the true power needs to be coaxed out and revealed so that the underlying emotional patterns can merge with our consciousness, which usually once you start the process of awareness there’s no going back, so you just confront whatever is limiting. Where we have Scorpio in our charts is where we are confronting the preconceived limitations that we’ve had about how that area of life works or doesn’t work, or how the planets involved can be expressed. There is always a more enlightened way to work with our shadows, and the Full Moon in Scorpio is an excellent time to be fully conscious with it.


Wishing you the best in your conscious evolution journey! May you know who you are and why you are here.



Self-Healing this Taurus Season

Taurus season is starting off with a bang, those final Aries reflections that we will carry into the next season.

Scroll down or click here for video on Self-Healing

The second Full Moon in Libra in a row, happening at 29˚7’ of Aries and Libra at 4:12am PDT this Friday, April 19th. This is happening just about a day before the Sun enters Taurus April 20that 1:56am. As we welcome Yin Fixed Earth, the inner side of Venus’ nature, we are first prepped with the outer side of Venus through the Libra Full Moon. We get the chance to look outward to see the beauty of ourselves reflected back to us, before going in to smooth the inner edges.

Taurus season is incredibly powerful for creating sustainable routines, new ways to connect with the abundance that is always around us, and how to work honestly and diligently toward what we value most. This is a time for creating the beauty and deep sensual existence and healing that we strive for most.

With the Sun conjunct Uranus in Taurus, this brings greater heightening to the awakening process we’ve begun with Uranus who is in Taurus for another 6 years. Uranus is also sextile Juno and Black Moon Lilith, pulling in a strong energy of working through shadow and karma in our committed relationships, primarily in how we are communicating. 

With Black Moon Lilith in Aquarius, this can link to how we are liberating ourselves from social conditioning surrounding self-expression, individuality, and perhaps femininity. With Juno in Gemini, this brings up communication patterns around how we get our needs met. This can be an excellent time to bring conscious intention to solving any issues around communication with anyone in your life, especially those with strong karmic ties.

Mercury also just entered Aries, soon to conjunct Chiron, with Venus about to join this configuration, pulling in a strong forward motion energy toward healing our feminine expressions. As we work through healing our whole self, both the masculine and feminine working together in Divine Union, we can master these karmic lessons presented to us. Remember, we peel back the layers of the evolution onion one layer at a time. 

Sometimes unpacking these healing stories can feel frustrating, as we come to seemingly similar points again and again in our lives, but this is yet another layer of the onion to move through as we expand our consciousness. With an Aries focus, the key is to look at ourselves directly, head on, face forward. Don’t shy away from your own reflection.

No matter what our path of healing is or what modality we identify with, all healing centers around a story of some kind. Maybe it’s a story of what we’ve inherited from our parents, or what we believe about ourselves, or how we understand our astrology. Whatever the origins of the words we weave, there is always a possibility to transition and transcend whatever limitations we’ve placed on ourselves via our stories.

Using our charts, we can identify pain points and resolve old wounds, and we can clear many generations and lines of family trauma through our individual awareness and persistence. The key with most healing is to begin and continue, and it helps if we are aware of the possibility first, and the strategy second to shift our patterns.

To learn about some of the ways we can identify pain points and healing potential in the chart, watch the video below or click here. Wishing you much illumination and success on your healing path!

Aries Season 2019: Spring Equinox & Full Moon in Libra

We have a few special things about this upcoming Full Moon in Libra, it’s a supermoon, and most importantly it’s occurring just a few hours after the Spring Equinox Wednesday, March 20th. 


Click below to watch video or scroll down to keep reading.

Let’s talk about the fact that it’s a supermoon! A supermoon happens when the full moon coincides with the moon's closest approach to Earth in its orbit. If you’re a careful moon watcher you’ll notice that it looks about 30% brighter and appears closer, as it is literally closer to the Earth.


Energetically, this creates an increase of self-awareness, as we can see into ourselves and others a bit more closely and vibrantly. As we step into Aries season, with the focus on our new projects, our new creations, our new life springing forth and blossoming out into the world, we simultaneously have this strong focus on the other, which is coming through Libra. So, as we can see into ourselves more intimately to know what we want to create, we have the component of those closest to us mirroring back our creative flow. This can mean a lot of different things to different people, so let’s unpack some of the major aspects associated with this Equinox Full Moon.


The Equinox is exact at 2:59 pm PDT, Wednesday, March 20th. The most obvious aspect is that the Sun is conjunct Chiron in Aries, the wounded healer, who will be in Aries until 2027. I have a whole video on the specifics of this, which is linked in in my bio if you’re watching from Instagram, or you can find it linked beneath this video if you’re watching on Facebook or YouTube.


But at its most basic, Chiron in Aries is supporting us in our ego maturation process, and the healing that comes from owning up to our individual creative spark of life that seeks to become. We are learning how to trust ourselves more, to tune into the highest frequency of our desire nature, and to find a more intuitive connection to what we are creating, thus leading to healing of our ego, and healing of our instincts and impulse nature.


Depending on where you have Aries in your chart, this will illuminate the healing process further, and also noting the relation between transiting Chiron with natal Chiron, as it always reflexes back to your natal chart when trying to understand your own holistic healing process.


Aries rules the head, the skull, the cerebrum, the motor centers of the brain, the eyes, and upper jaw. This is a great time for a jaw massage! If you haven’t heard of that, look it up, and then get one! It’s great for relieving overall body stress, as it’s all connected. Every time I’ve taught a yoga class I remind the students to release the tension in the jaw, because as we carry tension in the jaw, it is often linked to tension in the hips and elsewhere in the body. 


The Aries-Libra axis together governs the acid/alkaline balance in the body, the glandular balances, and the adrenals. So think about how fast you are moving, how fast energy is moving through you, and the balance of the food you are eating. Sometimes I like to nerd out as I’m also a studying herbalist, but I totally have Ph strips and I test my saliva. Did you know that by keeping your mouth at about a 7 ph level you can avoid cavities? Most dental decay comes from an overly acidic mouth culture. So if this is happening in your mouth, imagine what is happening on an overall physical level if your ph is out of balance overall.


So, with the Spring Equinox occurring conjunct Chiron in Aries, we have a strong re-infusion and focus on our personal healing journeys, and with the Full Moon in Libra, this is being mirrored back and supported by how we relate to others. 


What has our communication been like with others? With Mercury retrograde in Pisces over this past week and a half, we’re about halfway through his retrograde transit, which can add an interesting component to what we’re discovering, and our overall energy for creating something new.


You may have been experiencing rendezvous with past lovers or past relationships coming into your awareness that need some healing, and this Full Moon can bring a culmination of that awareness. So many of you have been telling me about your dreams with past relationships, or even the lingering thoughts of needing to reconcile or communicate to past lovers to find greater healing or clarity. This is quite common during Mercury retrograde phases, especially as we mentally go back to try to solve issues that in some way are linked to our current evolution. Especially with Mercury in Pisces, bringing our conscious awareness to how we find wholeness, our spiritual path, our connection with All that Is. This is bringing up stuff around unconditional love, acceptance, compassion and forgiveness, most commonly in all the ways we can share more of this energy with ourselves and others.


With the Full Moon, you may find this to be heightened with a focus on forgiving others, and noticing the effects that has on your ability to free yourself from past shackles, which can then support your personal creative process even more.


When we think of Spring, we think Spring cleaning, or we think about what new things we want to create. We are inspired, and motivated. With this Mercury Retrograde, just remember to be patient with yourself if you feel like you don’t yet have everything worked out. This requires faith and trust, and sometimes you need to forge ahead without having all the mental answers worked out. But remember there is a way to be strategic with this. If you’re able to wait until Mercury stations direct, then wait, but if you need to take action now, then trust that you have all the necessary information you require at this time, and reach out to Great Spirit, God/Goddess to help lead the way in your decision-making process. It’s likely that new information will continue to trickle in over the next month that will help bring greater clarity to whatever situation you’re trying to find the answers to.


A lot of us are finding ourselves immersed in the need to make radical change in a new direction. This is a healthy drive for change, and aligns well with the current energy, but it requires that strong focus on faith and trust. It requires alignment with our higher selves. Think Jupiter in Sagittarius in a rough square with the Pisces planets right now. This brings up a lot of inner dialogue regarding personal truth and timeless truth, and how to expand beyond what we thought was possible in our very belief systems. This is a great time to notice the words that you speak, and notice how they link back to your beliefs about a given topic. This can be highly illuminating about the specific ways you are growing, stretching and expanding right now. 


Overall, collectively we’re calling in greater acceptance and tolerance toward all the varying belief systems out there, which we know are infinite and quite nuanced. The only way to collectively heal a lot of our rifts in belief systems are to cultivate a higher acceptance and seeing the relativity of truth, and therefore stretching our higher minds beyond what we thought was possible in how to see the world and our place in it. This will become more obvious how this is operating in your life when Jupiter stations retrograde, which will be mid-Aries season on April 10th.


On the same day we also have Mars in Taurus trine Pluto in Capricorn, highlighting the transformation of what we take action on in regards to Earthly resources. We may find ourselves needing to consciously align with a way of spending money or using resources that brings more long-term sustainability, which can ultimately help expand resources rather than deplete them. Look to where you have Taurus and Capricorn in your chart to see what kinds of resources this means for you.


We will also have Venus entering Pisces March 26th, bringing a nice harmonizing impact with Mercury in his final days of retrograde season. She’ll join Neptune as well April 9th, bringing in a heightened focus on wholistic healing and universal love. Venus in Pisces brings a strong emphasis on loving the All, loving all of ourselves, loving all of those others in our lives, and even loving the others who we do not include in our closest circle. 


This can be a time of widening the circle, as Mother Theresa would argue, that sometimes we draw our circle too small. On a collective level, if everyone is doing this, it creates scarcity mindset, whereas if we all draw our circles a bit bigger, we start to realize there really is always enough to go around, and we can enter an abundance mindset that seeks to share what we have with others, out of the pure joy of knowing we are all one, that when we help others, we help ourselves. When we love others, we love ourselves.


Pisces also rules the lymphatic system, and Venus seeks to bring harmony wherever she travels, so paying attention to how the fluids are being moved through your body, getting enough exercise, staying hydrated and focusing on the wholeness of your organism can give you a nice lift depending on how you’ve been feeling. Venus in Pisces specifically can link to issues with blood sugar, so making sure you’re in balance with what you’re eating, especially if you’re feeling super activated but leaving little time to eat properly, blood sugar spikes and crashes are a very real thing that can definitely deplete you if you’ve overworking yourself. It’s okay to slow down and let things come to you, even while you are energetically pushing forward with the Spring energy of creation. Pisces also rules the feet, so reflexology may be a nice thing to gift yourself if you know you’re needing some more self-care! The North Node is still in Cancer people, so self-care and self-love is a must, always, but especially right now.


Speaking of that, Cancer rules the stomach, so paying special attention to how you are feeding yourself, both physically and on the soul level. How is the work you’re doing in the world (South Node in Capricorn) feeding your soul? How are you literally eating? Your stomach will let you know if it’s not working for you, and typically the physical mirrors much of the spiritual, so you know if you’re not feeding yourself well physically, there may not be proper spiritual nourishment as well. They usually go hand in hand, as when we’re too hurried to eat well, as we really taking the time we need to nourish our spirit? Food for thought. 


Having a full moon ring us in to the natural new year of the zodiac reminds us to stay connected with our relationships while we forge ahead on our personal path. We can find much support by staying close to others, and even though we all have our own journey, we know the fruits of our work is best tasting when shared with others, so include others where and how you can in your journey.


Be open to communicating about your projects, about what inspires you. You may find that others are also seeking someone to share about their dreams. Really, we all just want to be able to tell our story, at least to someone, so be willing to listen as well. Be willing to see both sides of the story. Be willing to open yourself up to others and be present, and notice the benefits that it also has for your own creative journey.


So, to summarize:Look at where you have Aries and Libra in your chart to see what is being most strongly illuminated within you this full moon and into the new season. Take a look at how you are feeding and nourishing yourself, and make a new plan if necessary. Ask for help if you need it, that’s why I’m here and others like me. 


Wishing you all well friends! Until next time, namaste!

Mercury Rx & New Moon in Pisces

Mercury Rx tomorrow, New Moon in Pisces and Uranus entering Taurus Wednesday... we have a full week and season ahead! Watch this video or keep reading below!

New moon in Pisces Wednesday, with Mercury Rx and Uranus moving into Taurus all within the same 2 days. Really asking ourselves the question… what does the world need from us? What does life itself need from us? What do we need from ourselves?


Sun and moon at 15˚ Pisces conjunct Vesta and Neptune at 16˚


Vesta is the goddess asteroid of sacred service, who keeps the holy flame burning as we continue in our hearts work. 

Her coming together with Neptune this week marks a reset of our spirit of devotion, to what are we most devoted to? This devotion, this joy, is the place we receive our inspiration to serve. 


In Pisces season we can come into contact with the contradictions and paradoxes of our lives. We know for example that it’s important for us to find we love to do and from that place share ourselves with the world, yet We are simultaneously being asked of spirit to be what and how and who we need to be in order to be of the greatest service. There’s a multiplicity inherent in Piscean oneness. We don’t need to be all things to all people, but we also have the ability to surrender and let go of certain ego attachments that limit our ability to serve, which sometimes requires us to change up our style. That’s not being fake or inauthentic... that’s being ready to do what you need to do, or go where you need to go, or change how you need to change so that you can stay aligned with your souls highest path for you. We can ask “god/goddess what would you have me do today that is in the highest good for all?” As we learn how to surrender to what is in the highest good for all, we learn that it is also inherently the highest good for ourselves as individuals as well. It’s not about personal sacrifice or being a martyr. It’s about listening, communicating and responding in a way that those you are communicating with can hear you and receive you. This is how we maintain our edge as leaders, teachers, healers, creators, parents, mentors, partners and whatever your path of awakening is. 


This New Moon in Pisces is asking us to look at how we can change, or adapt or evolve our attitude, our approach to whatever is the work we do in the world. How we show up in the roles we play, how we enjoy the life given to us. At its highest, the wisdom in Pisces teaches us to be happy, and to know that that is the highest place from which to serve. 


Mercury retrograde offers us a time to reflect on how we speak to ourselves, and of course the other people who are also ourselves. It’s a good time to observe our patterns of communication, watch out for those patterns where we paint ourselves the victim to life circumstances. Watch out for what you complain about. How might this be rooted in a fundamental fear or distrust of life? How can you alter your relationship with life itself to show more trust that everything is actually always working out? What needs to be surrendered within your thoughts patterns that has kept you stuck in believing lies?

This is what Neptune’s been working on, for a while actually, about 7 years so far, helping us with the disillusionment process. So the moon and mercury retrograde this year are bringing us full circle into a new cycle of higher awareness in our we relate to the joy of our lives, and what that means in all the various spheres of influence we find ourselves in. 


We also have Mercury stationing retrograde at 29˚ Pisces, 1˚ away from Chiron at 0˚ Aries. This gives Mercury a Chironic message of healing, teaching, and bringing up information from deep within to become more conscious. Our patterns are so funny sometimes, aren’t they? Sometimes I find myself doing or saying things, and then immediately after wonder why I said it. It can be healthy to observe these thoughts or speech patterns and notice the compulsions behind them, or why we feel the need to say things, especially if when we reflect on them they don’t actually feel true. Why do we say things sometimes that we don’t actually believe in? These can be things centered around not enough ness, or victimhood, or life being not fair in some way. They usually sound a bit childish, or just off-center in some way. And still the goal is not to judge these things we say, but to notice them, and notice how we can become more honest with ourselves through the words we speak. We may find this Mercury Rx season bringing more silence and solitude in our natures as we find the stillness within that leads to this deep healing. This deep growing. This deep awakening. Maturing. All of this is just a practice of self-awareness, to see how we can be even more loving to ourselves and others with every single word we speak, and eventually with every single thought we think. Sometimes we won’t catch the true nature of our thoughts until we’ve spoken them out loud, and then we hear it ourselves, consciously, and that’s something that can help up release any stuck subconscious communication patterns.


Uranus also moves into Taurus the day after the new moon, bringing us back to the focus on how we use our resources, how we stay tuned into the highest frequency of our values and priorities. So with this new moon we can be setting intentions specifically on finding what is the highest use of the resources life has given us, and perhaps what new resources we’d like to call in. Remember that Uranus offers an awakening process, that is usually linked to the changing of patterns. This can mean new routines that support a healthier use of resources, like new ways of caring for the earth, or for our own little plots of land that sustain us. Paying special attention to where we are putting our money, because in a lot of ways that’s how we vote for the type of resource use we want to continue to see in the future. Support the local farmers, sustainable handmade artisans, cutting down on things you don’t need, to make room for what you really truly value in your life. These small efforts can go a long way, and also demonstrate your willingness to listen to the call of global change that is on the way. Remember the mantra of Uranus, to choose change before change chooses you. 


Again, this brings us back to devotional joy, the joy of serving by simply being ourselves, and paying attention to what is being surrendered within you to make room for the highest expression of your calling in this life. This is a time for the maturation of how we engage with our ego, maturing the ego itself, not belittling it. Working in partnership with it, so we can stay aligned to the shifts happening in the world and within our own spirits. 

Winter Solstice – Refining & Honouring Community Systems

The Sun enters Capricorn December 21st, 2018, 2:23PM PST


Watch this video, or scroll down to keep reading...

If we feel into the essence of what is really moving and shifting collectively, we have this powerful, international, conscious community, full of change-makers and creatives, many with a mission to connect, support and inspire, we can feel simultaneously into the readiness of our communities to make a change or see a change.


We are ready to raise up, step up, step in, check in, and really focus our energies on what we are creating together as a global community. This aligns so sweetly with the energy of the Winter Solstice, as we acknowledge our need to come together and support each other.


The Sun in Capricorn illuminates in all of us the ways we can tune into our function and role in society, and how we can come together to improve the system itself. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, and their roles are to both maintain and to tear down structures, according to the need of the whole. We've also got the Full Moon in Cancer happening just a day after the Sun ingresses Capricorn, December 22nd, reminding us to go within, and feed our soul. It's important to see how both of these processes must happen simultaneously if we're aiming for longevity and sustainability of our systems.


While we’re collectively feeling into the lunar node shift of South Node Capricorn and North Node in Cancer over the next 18 months, we also have Saturn and Pluto residing even more long term in Capricorn. This is truly a time of collaborating and taking responsibility for how we can strengthen the ties of our community around the world.



The Sun in Capricorn is trine Uranus, but this is interesting because Capricorn-Taurus is the usual Earth trine, and Capricorn-Aries are a natural square by sign. So, with Uranus in Aries still during Rx season, there is a bit of a discomfort being moved through in how the communication is going between these 2 planets, the Sun and Uranus, but it can become more easeful if we tune in to how we are awakening consciously. The line between selfness and self-reliance, and the resources we have to fully show up in our lives are really behind the collective conversation we’re currently having around community projects, or whatever building you have going on in your personal life.


The thing to remember though, even if you don’t consider yourself part of some specific team or working on a collaborative project, is that in some way you are still part of the whole, still contributing, still offering a piece of yourself or your resources to the world. You can connect with where you have. Capricorn in your chart to really feel into this, and really look at the Cancer/Capricorn axis to get the full picture. How do you need to be nourished on the soul-level (Cancer), and how does this support your ability to contribute to the world authentically (Capricorn), really offering your voice in how the systems we all live with are created and constructed or reconstructed.


Perhaps you are involved in the dismantling or tearing down process. Or perhaps you are involved in building something new, or in refining a system or structure so that it stays current with the evolving needs of our society. Wherever you find yourself in the process of conscious evolution and community creation, you can find comfort in the fact that we are many, we are strong, and we are here working, expanding and transforming with you.


As this year ends and we are once again at a Cardinal point of initiation, we are being held in the grace of a new beginning, activating and seeding a brand-new cycle of development. Mars in Pisces is sitting right in between Neptune and Chiron, energizing our processes of disillusionment, spiritualization, and healing. 


Something nice to remember when we are deep in the throes of disciplined, focused creation, is that by working together as a team, it is easier for us to take a break when needed as individuals. The North Node in Cancer is a guiding light that can keep us filled and fed on the mind, body, heart and soul level. This is the only way we will stay on target with our goals. It can be easy to think “it’s all about efficiency and productivity” when you’ve got a solid project to jump into. And while this is important, the longevity factor will depend on your ability to listen to your body’s needs, your emotional needs, your self-care needs, your security needs. 


It’s also important to be aware of our role in being the “parent” of something we’ve created, whether that’s an actual child, an organization, or simply in parenting ourselves. It’s not our job to be all of the resources our creations require. It is simply our job to find the resources needed, which can come through other people. 


This is how Cancer and Capricorn feed off of each other and balance each other out. We need to know what we need (Cancer), and we can also find comfort and support in our community and the systems we co-create when we are in alignment with the Truth of what our communities need (Capricorn). How are you able to provide for yourself, meet your own needs, and also meet the needs of your creations? Watch how an increase of individual self-nourishment comes back to feed the community you are so deeply committed to serving.


On the day of the Winter Solstice, Mercury is conjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius, bringing together thought and intuition into this process of communal creation. This can greatly influence our perception of Truth, and we can expand our vision exponentially into what our community truly needs and how we can thrive. With the majority of the planets in the inter & trans-personal signs, you may also feel a strong pull out of the “me space” and into the “we space”. Let yourself be pulled, as your intuition is guiding you to the places that need to expand and liberate within you and around you. 


Jupiter has the tendency to expand things, thus expanding our ability to really use our mind. This can help us spot future trends, and feel into new information that can help us be more productive. Something to be aware of with this, is when we are in the space of growth and new information, we have the tendency to use that information against ourselves. This is just what we do, what our ego does, in order to try to integrate what we are learning. 


So, another way to integrate what we’re learning can be to simply slow down a bit this season. This doesn’t mean stop, but it means move intentionally. Don’t panic. Don’t grasp, or strive beyond what the situation truly calls for. Coming back to what the North Node in Cancer is calling forth from within us, we are reminded to stay attuned to our needs while we ground down into our work.


Often, we want to prescribe to ourselves new ways to be productive, instead of feeling into all the fragmented parts of ourselves that actually need acknowledgement. When we are fully acknowledged and integrated, (and it’s a process of course), it’s actually a lot easier to be naturally “productive” – in an organic flow state. So instead of using strategies of productivity as a way to punish ourselves even more if we are struggling from any internal “not enoughness”, we can learn compassion for what the wholeness of who we are needs and wants to do and be. This same compassion can actually be carried into the systems we create, and be an example of balance between masculine and feminine in our community systems. 


On the day of the Sun’s ingress into Capricorn, we also have the Sun forming a quintile to Pallas Athene, the Goddess asteroid of creative intelligence. She is really bringing in some ideas around finding the balance and harmony between masculine and feminine energy in what we are co-creating. As we tear down old structures and come together to build up new ones, this is incredibly important to consider in the new systems we raise up. We’ll find that the better the balance, the better the chances of longevity and true value in society.


You can ask yourself about your relationship to both the Divine masculine and Divine Feminine in your life, and in the energy of the projects you are working on. How can you honour both more, and in your own way? How can you honour yourself more as you continue to refine your roles and offerings in society? How can you bring honour to your community?


Wishing you all a serene and soulful Winter Solstice.


In loving service, 


Sagittarius Season

The Sun enters Sagittarius Thursday November 22nd, 1:02am PST. This is perfect, because Thursday is Jupiter day, Jueves, Jeudi, Jove’s day. Thursdays are also known to be lucky, as is Sagittarius. But what exactly is luck?


Scroll down to keep reading, or watch the video!

Luck can mean many things, but at the very least, through the lens of the law of attraction, we can say that Sagittarians create their own luck by being aligned with the highest vision for their future. They know what they want, they have their eye on the prize, and they simply trust and move forward toward that goal, sometimes stumbling a few times along the way in their optimistic and enthusiastic fervor, but always shooting for the stars, and perhaps landing somewhere close to the moon. It may not be where the Sagittarius thought they were going in the beginning, but now they’re here, and they might as well enjoy where they landed. This ability to enjoy the process of growth, transformation, traveling, the journey, this is what gives the Sagittarius luck, because of their ability to tune into the positive that is within every situation.


Sagittarius is famous for trying to give everything meaning, especially the things that are hardest to understand as to why they would happen. Why did we break up? Well things just weren’t meant to be. I was meant to find my Truth and it wasn’t with that person. Why did my aunt just die? Because she found completion in her mission here on Earth, and was ready to transcend into the next phase of her evolution. Why does everyone disagree on politics? Why are we destroying the Earth? Why aren’t we loving ourselves and others as best we can? Because as a collective we are disconnected from natural law, and we need to show ourselves just how far we’ve strayed so that we can make conscious choices to realign. 


This is the pattern for Sagittarius. Asking why, and finding an answer that satisfies the highest form of meaning we can comprehend. This leads into some of the shadow and illuminated aspects of Sagittarius, as we can all experience the range at different times and different situations in our lives. 


Shadow Sagittarius:


Shadow Sagittarius has found an answer to a question, and now believes it is his God given right and duty to make everyone else agree with him. This is dogma. This is arrogance. This is someone still on the path of discovering the fullness of the journey toward Truth, and needing to learn that the path is wide, and it is also not their job to decide what is Truth for all people. This is someone who is working through to heal the shadow elements of Sagittarius within themselves.


Illuminated Sagittarius:


Illuminated Sagittarius has discovered that they cannot know the answer to every question. That it is the search itself that brings wisdom, and it is also in the healthy incorporation of its opposite sign Gemini, the understanding of the relativity of Truth, and all the different perspectives that give life its richness, and give space for each of us to explore Truth and Knowledge in each of our own ways. This integration of Sagittarius/Gemini is what the Full Moon in Gemini illuminates within us. How are we doing with the integration of truth in our experience, and how does this link with the other people in our lives? Don Miguel Ruiz, author of the 4 Agreements and many more books of wisdom says:


“In our development, as we grow throughout our lives, the structure of our beliefs becomes very complicated, and we make it even more complicated because we make the assumption that what we believe is the absolute truth.”


Here is a fallacy that shapes the experience of shadow Sagittarius. It’s when we learn to let go of our hold that we have all the answers about our own life, our own experience, and that of the world, that we actually let in more light of wisdom from the Divine. Sagittarius being a natural square to Pisces highlights this relationship of seeking Truth, and yet needing to always remember that there is a Oneness, a level of Consciousness that goes way beyond what we can put into words. It’s the acknowledgement of this that can bring heightened Sagittarian wisdom. Another thing he says, is that:


“We never stop to consider that our beliefs are only a relative truth that’s always going to be distorted by all the knowledge we have stored in our memory.”


What we believe is actually constantly changing, as is the nature of mutable signs. We are constantly adapting to new information, and comparing this with information from our memories. This is what gives mutable signs their energy of spiraling and always moving, because we are always in a constant flow of receiving and disseminating information, and therefore needing to shift our perspectives. It’s only when we get attached to a certain viewpoint that we can find frustration within ourselves, because we don’t like cognitive dissonance. We want certainty. We want the answer. But the answer is always changing, isn’t it?


This is where we also learn to dance in the duality of truth and lies. Gemini and Sagittarius represent the axis of Truth, and therefore of course involve the overcoming of lies, the releasing of perspectives that are not true and can cause harm. And like we know after a year of Jupiter in Scorpio, coming out of a Venus Scorpio Rx season, which she’s still in her post-shadow period by the way, lies hurt.


The revealing of lies brings up all sorts of wounding based around our need to trust in life, to trust in people, to trust in ourselves. It can be challenging to trust, or to know what voices to trust, when we are surrounded by many lies an deception. Neptune is still Rx in Pisces too, and Neptune can bring our attention to where we are being deceived, and how, and what the process might be like to bring upon disillusionment. Disillusionment is the process of letting go of illusions. And this involves the surfacing of all the lies we’ve told ourselves, and that others have told us. Another quote from Don Miguel Ruiz:


 “You know that if you lie to yourself, surely other people lie to themselves. And If they lie to themselves, they will lie to you also”.


So, what do we do with this? This can be maddening if we just leave it there. It would be like me taking you down into the valley of deception and confusion and just leaving you there, which I won’t do. But it is a real place that we go to, and often when we are on a journey of exploration. So, the final word of wisdom from Don Miguel is to:


“Be skeptical, but learn to listen”.


We don’t want to shut off our faculties of listening to others, opening up to others, trusting others, or trusting in ourselves. We require human connection. And we communicate. This is where we can learn to master the art of communication with others. One of my favourite sayings that my aunt always used to say to me was: Every problem is communication. Every solution is communication. Spoken like a true Sagittarius Sun Libra Moon diplomat. She was also a principal of an elementary school, so you can imagine the issues of lies and deceit and trickery that she had to deal with from the kids. But what she said always stuck with me, and made it possible for me to deal with my own back and forth in communication. In understanding that we are all dealing with these issues. We are all in some way on a journey toward finding truth. Some of us just get comfortable and hang out somewhere on the path, and from there start preaching that that is the best place to stay, and that everyone should stay there with them. And that’s okay. We wave and smile at our fellow human travelers, and if it resonates with us to stay there with them for a while, let’s do it.


When it’s time to go our own way, we can do that too, trusting that there will always be more to explore, more to open ourselves to, more to experience. And thus, the cycle continues, and it will always continue. When you feel that we’ve discovered ultimate or absolute truth, you halt your own journey, and are caught up in a fallacy that sure, maybe you need to explore for a while, but it’s so important to know that you can always choose to just get up and starting walking somewhere else on the path, and that you will run into another element of natural law, another facet of the truth of oneness, another page in the story to sit with and take in its meaning and value.


So, let’s look at some of the transits, and the overall themes coming up this Sagittarius season:


Full Moon in Gemini on the same day of the ingress of the Sun, Nov 22nd, 9:39pm PST.Like I said before, this will be a great time to explore your current lens that you’re using to understand yourself, your situation you may be in, your relationships, your choices, and so on. Where can you perhaps find more innocence on your path, less attachment, less resistance and more connection with the wisdom of your own truth, while not discounting that of anyone else’s.


Saturn leaves Rx zone December 12th. (That’s my birthday!)  Leaving the retrograde zone is just coming out of the degree points that he had entered retrograde during the summer. So now that he’s all steam ahead again, we can really feel confident in what we are building, whatever we’re project we’re working on, that it’s time to move forward with it. Any doubts that came up during the post retrograde shadow are hopefully and likely resolved, and you can move forward with confidence. Remember, Saturn loves a project. If you feel that you are overly immersed in experiences of limitation or general stuckness, you can use the energy of Saturn in Capricorn to simply start a new project, something that you can continue to build on long-term. It will re-direct and re-focus the energy in a new direction that is more conscious, and more intentional, which is always good.


Venus leaves Rx zone December 17th at 10˚50’ Scorpio. This has been a powerful time for exposing anything hidden in relationships, and all for the best, for the purposes of transformation, growth, and becoming more aligned with our soul level desires. We’ve been working through some of our darkest patterns that come up in relationships, and particularly you have Venus and Scorpio in your chart, the relationships connected with that area of your life. How we set our point of attraction, and so on. So, when she leaves the Rx zone officially, again, we’ll likely feel that everything that transpired in this time is mostly resolved, on its way to a new focus, a deeper insight that we can use for the future. 


It’s been great to have this opportunity with Mercury Rx, right after Venus Rx. Mercury Rx nov 16thto December 6th, leaves Rx zone Dec 24th. Mercury is giving us time to slow down a bit mentally, and process what went on with Venus, and bringing in some of the Sagittarian optimism to help us out of the dark and slipper cavern of Scorpio.


We will also have the New Moon in Sagittarius Dec 6th 11:20pm pst, so you can already start planning ahead for your moon circle, your new patterns of connecting with Sagittarius energy in your life. I suggest writing and a lot of communication with yourself over these next few weeks, especially around the time of this New Moon, as we can get a beautiful emotional reset, more in alignment with our truth, and less with the preoccupation of the lies that have just been revealed in our lives.


Neptune stations direct November 24th, 5:08pm PST, just 2 days into Sagittarius season, and again, this will be a time to release any illusions that have kept us almost wanting to be deceived. Sometimes we think it will be easier if we just don’t know the patterns going on under the surface, but the truth has to come out some time, and we have to be willing to face it with clarity, and knowing that the Divine has us supported and held, always, especially when we don’t understand why something is happening. When Neptune stations direct, we can really come out of the place of “what the F just happened?” and move more into “okay and what now?” and “how can I align with Spirit in the process moving forward”?


Mars also conjuncts Neptune Dec 7th, 2018, 5:41am pst, bringing energy to this process of aligning with Spirit and releasing resistance to our highest path. Mars is in Pisces until December 31st, really helping us to integrate and tie together all the loose ends of what we’ve created this year. Taking just about 2 years to get through each of the signs, Mars in Pisces won’t be felt again until May 2020. So we can really bring our attention to activating Pisces healing energy in our lives, especially as Mars will also conjunct Chiron at the end of December too. So you can already start thinking about those New Year’s resolutions, and how they can link to your healing journey.


We’ve also just had the Lunar Node shift into Cancer/Capricorn, Nov 6 – May 2020. This is a big one for redirecting our energies more inward, into a yin space, after a year and a half of yang. We’re reconnecting with self-love, self-nurturing, parenting ourselves, healing any wounds related to self-security or being able to show up fully as we are, open to receive love from others, working through any issues of codependency, and not putting up walls, figuratively, or literally. 


To aid us in the search for truth and justice we have Jupiter in Sagittarius, November 8th– December 2019. Jupiter stays in each sign for about a year, and therefore every 12 years comes back to the same sign. Happy Jupiter return for those of you around the ages of 24, 36, 48, 60 and so on. May your consciousness expand in awareness, joy and love. For all of us, this is a great time to call in optimism. Enthusiasm. Finding joy on the path of evolution. Jupiter likes to bring gifts, and when he’s wearing the outfit of his own sign, his gifts are big, and truth-focused, so we have a lot of good things to look forward to. And really, it’s that general perspective, that we do have good things going on in our lives that can really save us, that can help us to move forward, even if things are hard sometimes. We can all take a page out of the Sagittarian book of creating our own luck, simply through attracting positivity, by being positive.


So, there you have it, some of the visions for healing, growing and expanding this Sagittarius season.


Your homework: Look at where you have Sagittarius in your chart, to see what the Sun is illuminating for you this month. Of course, if you want to deepen this understanding, let’s connect for a reading, or you can also check out my courses available online. Wishing you all the best in your journey of expansion and being a witness of Truth and beauty, this day, and every day.
