This week gives us a major fresh start as we come off of the energy of Sunday’s New Moon in Leo and move into a brand new Mars cycle on Wednesday with it’s conjunction— ending a 25-26 month-long energetic cycle of action and initiating us into a brand new cycle colored by the fiery and courageous energy of Leo! We also officially move into the shadow period of the upcoming Mercury retrograde on Tuesday just prior to Mercury’s ingress into its home sign of Virgo. A Mercury retrograde looming in the midst of Eclipse season is enough to drive anyone a little bit mad, so be sure to allow extra time and space for rest and relaxation as well as a few mistakes!Read More
We’re coming into the dark phase of the moon on Friday and we make the shift into Leo season on Saturday with the dynamic and ambitious New Moon in Leo coming exact late Saturday night (or early Sunday morning, depending on your location). This weekend represents a potent portal as the New Moon in Leo marks the official start to Eclipse Season, a potent and turbulent time of fated significance that will create a launching point, compelling us to move forward with greater courage and authenticity!Read More
There’s a lot going on in the skies this week with a good combination of both tense and harmonious energies. We kick off the week with a hard square between Mars and Uranus, fueling frustration, change and impulsivity, and we finish out the workweek with a similar, although slightly less intense aspect between the Sun and Uranus, adding further impetus for change. We do have some very nice energy brewing mid-week with Venus coming into a beneficial trine with Jupiter in Libra, bringing more adventure and optimism into our relationships and financial situation.Read More
We’re coming into a relatively calm weekend in terms of the general astrology with Mercury’s supportive sextile over to Jupiter in Libra being the only major planetary aspect. We’ll come into a bit of friction on Sunday as we wind down the lunar month with the last quarter square of the Moon in willful and passionate Aries— calling us to wrap things up and take any necessary remaining action to conclude important projects as we begin to move into a point of completion and rest in preparation for the next lunar cycle, which marks the beginning of Eclipse Season!Read More
With no major planetary influences, this workweek gives us a much needed break from any difficult energy we may have recently encountered as we come off of the intensity of Saturday’s Full Moon in Capricorn in conjunction with Pluto, which was all about taking responsibility for our emotional well-being, facing our fears, and stepping outside of our comfort zones in order to obtain the results we desire.Read More
This weekend we have an intense and powerful Full Moon in Capricorn, in conjunction with Pluto, allowing us an opportunity to face our fears head-on in order to take back our power! This will be the main theme of this weekend as the Sun in Cancer comes into its exact opposition with Pluto on Saturday, further highlighting issues of power and control that require surrender and transformation in order to restructure our lives in a way that better supports our success.Read More
The astrology this week is looking pretty nice, save for a bit of a disruptive influence between Mercury and Uranus on Tuesday to shake up our Independence Day plans. Lots of shift happening this week as well with Venus moving into chatty and vivacious Gemini and Mercury moving into the courageous and expressive sign of Leo mid-week.Read More
The intensity many of us have been feeling this week continues into the weekend, especially as we move into Sunday as Mercury leaves it’s conjunction with Mars and opposition to Pluto just in time for Mars to get in some face time with the planet of sex, death, and transformation. Luckily, the moon in Libra this weekend mellows out the energy a bit, putting us in a more romantic and harmonious mood as we go about our holiday weekend festivities.Read More
It’s looking to be a busy week! We kick off our Monday morning with the Moon waxing in fiery Leo, giving us an extra-fresh start this week as we come out of the relatively mellow energy of the New Moon in Cancer, which kicked off our weekend on Friday night. Mercury will be making many connections throughout the week as well, indicating that time will likely fly by us rather quickly and our minds will be busy with lots of planning, strategizing and office chatter. Mid-week things heat up a bit with Mercury coming into a dynamic conjunction with Mars, the planet of action and war, followed by an opposition to Pluto, the planet of intensity, death and rebirth. At the very least, your work week should be anything but boring ;)Read More
This weekend we’re coming off of the bright and fiery Summer Solstice energy and into the subjective, emotional waters of Friday’s New Moon in Cancer. We also have some positive intensity and sexual tension building in our relationships this weekend with sensual Venus in harmonious aspect with the planetary ruler of sex, death and transformation. After that we’ll round out the weekend with a loving and compassionate mindset thanks to the deep, intuitive and emotionally vulnerable communications brought on by Mercury in Cancer as the messenger planet comes into a harmonious trine with mystical Neptune.Read More
We’re coming into the Summer Solstice this week, marking the culmination point of the solar year! While the Summer Solstice is typically a time of joy, activity and celebration, this year it occurs during the dark phase of the moon. Outwardly, we may feel pulled toward activity and celebration as we are at the height of the summer season, but inwardly many of us will feel the need for solitude, and retreat. Luckily, the astrology of this week is relatively calm and provides an excellent opportunity to get away from the world to spend some time relaxing by the pool.Read More
We’re facing a serious level of strange as we move into the weekend with an overload of mystical Neptunian energy coloring the day on Friday. With Neptune stationing direct on Thursday into Friday in conjunction with the Piscean moon, the veils are very thin. Many of us may feel a bit unusual, like things are a somehow off. Others who are more sensitive may feel overwhelmed with intuitive visions or messages from the other side. Tapping into this energy can provide useful insight so long as we don’t allow ourselves get in over our heads or fall prey to escapism through fantasy, psychedelic experience, drugs or alcohol. Luckily, we are still coming off of the Sun’s opposition to Saturn, helping to keep us grounded in reality. As we come into Sunday, Mercury will follow suit, opposing Saturn on Sunday and causing us to take a realistic look at our integrity when it comes to the more difficult work we’re being tasked with.Read More
There is a lot of energy surrounding our thoughts and communications this week as Mercury, the planet that rules the analytical mind and the messages we receive from others, makes a beautiful and harmonious trine to jovial and expansive Jupiter just before coming into a difficult aspect with foggy and confusing Neptune in Pisces. This combination poses the risk of becoming overly optimistic in our mindset and leaves us more prone to deception. Neptune is also strong in the skies this week as the planet of mysticism, compassion and connectedness stations to go retrograde on Thursday, heightening our receptivity and intuition.Read More
This weekend starts off incredibly strong with a supportive aspect between Mars and Venus, linking the masculine and feminine principal in a harmonious and cooperative way. We also have Jupiter stationing direct, bringing a surge of optimism and major revelations about the overwhelming beauty our futures may hold. Finally, we have an expansive Full Moon in Sagittarius, highlighting for all of us the ways in which our daily rituals work to create the bigger picture of our reality.Read More
This week is off to an interesting and karmic start with Mercury at the final degrees of Taurus coming into a challenging square with the lunar nodes before moving into its home sign of Gemini. Whenever the Lunar Nodes are involved, we can expect messages to come through in the form of omens, synchronicities, and strange, fated circumstances that show up in unusual ways. With Mercury in the mix these messages will likely come through in the form of frustrated thoughts and disruptive communications, so be sure to keep your eyes and ears open!Read More
Venus is getting a lot of action at the tail end of this week and into this weekend, stirring up a lot of energy surrounding relationships, finances and material matters. On Thursday, Venus came into a harmonious trine with Saturn in Sagittarius while sitting right in the middle of the Uranus-Eris conjunction— revealing things we don’t necessarily want to see about our relationships and financial situations and prompting us all to take calculated risks in order to resolve power struggles and restore balance moving forward. This energy continues into Saturday with Venus making it’s exact conjunction with Uranus while coming into trine with the North Node in Leo. This aspect brings flashes of insight and fated circumstances that serve to guide us toward the right relationships, which will help to move us into a more courageous and heart-centered path.
Friday (6/2): No major planetary aspects. The Moon goes Void-of-Course (VOC) in Virgo from 2:53pm-5:08pm MST when it moves into the beautiful and balanced sign of Libra.
Saturday (6/3): We have a lot going on in the skies today! Venus in Aries will come into an exact conjunction with Uranus today, bringing unexpected events surrounding relationships up to the surface. Uranus is the great disrupter and can cause disturbance to the balance and harmony that Venus desires. This disruption may come in the form of chaotic circumstances or unexpected insights, and although this aspect may leave some of us feeling frustrated and tense, for the most part I see this transit as bringing many benefits. Venus is still in close trine with Saturn in Sagittarius, an aspect that came exact on Thursday of this week, grounding the energy and adding a layer of stability integrity into the mix. Venus conjunct Uranus requires that we make some sort of change involving our close partnerships, romantic and otherwise, and so long as we are thinking things through and acting in integrity, the changes we make at this time can yield very positive results.
In addition to her conjunction with Uranus, Venus will be coming into a harmonious trine with the North Node bringing new, very fated and destined relationships into our world. As with any transit involving the Lunar Nodes, pay close attention to messages and insights that come up today (especially with Uranus in the mix) as the circumstances that arise are meant to guide us in the direction of a new, more courageous path. Now is a time to connect from the heart and share our passions and creativity with the people we love most.
We have another powerful, beneficial aspect today with the Sun in Gemini coming into a beautiful trine with expansive and optimistic Jupiter in Libra. Under the influence of the Sun and Jupiter, we can feel much more confident and self-assured. We feel much lighter, more jovial and expansive when Jupiter comes into positive aspect with the Sun. Now is an excellent time to take off and have an adventure, communicate and socialize, and to go out and be seen!
Sunday (6/4): Today the Sun in Gemini comes into square with mystical Neptune in watery, foggy Pisces. While Jupiter’s trine with the Sun has us feeling confident and full of optimism, the influence of this hard aspect from Neptune can cause us to become delusional about our abilities. We are more prone to self-deception and delusional behavior under this influence as Neptune causes us to want to see the world through rose-colored glasses. Neptune’s square to the Sun also makes us more susceptible to lies and deception from others. Although things may feel very positive and loving in the moment, be wary of offers and invitations that feel too good to be true as things may go south very quickly once this transit passes.
Finally, Mars moves from Gemini into the watery, emotional sign of Cancer today. Water signs are contradictory to the fiery nature of Mars and tend to slow down our ambitions and impetus to act. Those of us who are ruled by Mars (Aries and Scorpio Rising and Sun signs) may feel our willpower start to fizzle out once this transit takes hold. On the positive side, Mars in Cancer invites us to take action from a place of intuitive and emotional understanding. We are more inclined to nurture and be nurtured under this influence. People become much more emotionally and physically supportive and feel driven to tend to their comfort zones at this time. This is an excellent time to start projects related to the home, family and real estate and to take the initiative to begin a new self-care routine.

We’re coming off of the intense energy of Mars in opposition to Saturn, which came exact on Monday creating friction and tension between our will to act and our limitations and responsibilities. As we move further into the week, the energy lightens up significantly, especially as we come into Wednesday and Thursday with beneficial aspects between Mercury and Pluto as well as Venus and Saturn. Mercury trine Pluto sharpens our minds and helps us to see through the veil and to think much more clearly while Venus and Saturn in a harmonious trine brings structure and stability to our relationships and finances in a gentle and positive way.Read More
The planetary energy is pretty light this weekend but the tension is certainly building as we come into the face-off between the two “great malefics” on Monday, with Mars in Gemini opposing Saturn in Sagittarius. This frustrating aspect creates tension and friction between our desires to act and the restrictions and responsibilities brought about by Saturn and can be felt 2-3 days prior to the opposition coming exact. Used constructively, this energy can assist us in gaining an eagle-eye perspective on the options laid out in front of us and can aid us in working diligently and intensely toward our long-term goals and plans. On the flip side, the burden of limitation posed by the Saturnian influences in our lives can have us lashing out or manipulating others in order to get what we want. Tread lightly this weekend and choose your words and actions wisely to avoid unnecessary difficulty and conflict.Read More
Things start to calm down slightly at the start of this week with no planetary aspects during the dark phase of the moon; however, we aren’t completely out of the water just yet. We have vivacious New Moon in Gemini on Thursday all the while Venus in Aries makes a hard square to Pluto in Capricorn— adding a layer of depth, intensity, and potentially bringing some sort of emotional crisis involving power struggles, relationships or finances. After the New Moon, things will begin to settle down, especially as we move into June, but before that happens we will have one more difficult planetary aspect to deal with when Mars opposes Saturn on Monday (more on that next week). For now, my best advice for us all is to allow the energy of the dark moon to take over and simply surrender and let go of all the things that have been building in our lives in order to make space for all of the beauty we’re about to create this summer. ☺Read More
There’s a lot going in the astrology this weekend with the Sun squaring the Lunar Nodes before moving into the playful and curious sign of Gemini on Saturday (Happy Birthday to all of my Gemini readers)! This comes shortly after Mercury’s conjunction to Uranus last week and subsequent trine to the North Node on Monday, which highlighted the energy of the North Node’s trine to Uranus, which comes exact in early June. With all of these triggers to the lunar nodes, we are in some karmic and fated times and we are certainly getting a good taste of what the nodal transit through Leo & Aquarius will have in store for us over the coming 18 months. Pay attention to insights, signs, synchronicities and omens this weekend as the messages are coming in loud and clear so long as we are open to receiving them.Read More
