New Moon in Loquacious Gemini 5/28/14

Astro New Moon CrescentYes, I could have just used the word “Chatty”, however, Wednesday’s New Moon, with start up, initiating energy, will be in Communication focused, Air sign Gemini. The Moon is considered “New” when the Sun and Moon are in the same Zodiac sign and this time is great for new ideas and implementing new projects. Just be sure to verify whatever information comes your way before taking action. We will certainly be spurred on to share thoughts, feelings, stories at length regardless of who wants to listen. So get your facts straight. (Short and sweet works best sometimes. And remember, silence is a form of communication too 🙂 )

*Gemini New Moon: 2:40PM EDT / 11:40AM PDT – May 28, 2014

Moon in Aries, Then Taurus – Crackle & Practicality

Astro moon-waning-crescent-lBeginning on Friday May 23, 2014, the Moon vibrates in energetic Fire sign Aries for most of the weekend. As always with Aries, ruled by “warrior planet” Mars, make sure you have something physical to do. All this sign’s energy can make it a fun time, but just reign in any aggressive urges, think before you act. Power down occasionally so that loved ones don’t feel that they are in the presence of a bulldozer, but by all means, take advantage of the action.

The mood will change on Sunday afternoon as the lunar orb shifts into solid, steady, Earth sign Taurus through Monday. Thoughts can turn to security – financial and physical. Keep re evaluating how you spend and save your money. Even though, beauty loving, food loving, “loving” Venus ruled Taurus can be attached to ideas and be resistant to change, try to be flexible. Obstinacy may limit new ideas and opportunities.

Have a safe Memorial Day – take time to remember.


Gemini Sun 5/20/14 – Let The Multi Tasking Begin!

astrology_chartwheel 2Gemini has the sign of the “twins” as its Astrology symbol and while the Sun is in this 3rd sign of the Zodiac, we will all have the urge to double the fun regardless of our actual birth sign.

The characteristic youthfulness of Gemini, they usually look younger than their age, has nothing to do with immaturity. It is a curiosity for new places and things, the enjoyment of doing several things at once and the willingness to adapt that keeps the wrinkles, mental and physical, at bay. Fun, flirty, festivity loving, focus challenged, flexible, flighty (Full disclosure – I have a Gemini Sun, so I’m really having fun w/ this 🙂

Planet ruler Mercury, (communications, education, transportation, short journeys) is transiting Gemini until 5/28/14, therefore its influences will be enhanced. We will be nudged to learn something new, meet and greet, read and write, chat too much/gossip too much, want to be in two places at once (that Castor/Pollux, “duality” thing). And don’t forget travel, whether it be real or arm chair, the search for greener grass will be enticing.

This can all be such a good time, but also exhausting. Rather than be overwhelmed or scattered, hit the pause button occasionally. Collect your thoughts, watch what you say (Gemini verbal cleverness is legendary, just don’t be verbally careless), re focus, complete tasks that need to be finished, then go on to the next.

Take Charge Capricorn Moon This Weekend

Astro moon-waning-crescent-lOn Saturday and Sunday, May 17 & 18, 2014, we will be in the serious embrace of a Capricorn Moon. The 10th sign of the Zodiac has ambitious yearnings. The agenda involves managing career, creating success (whatever that means to you) and striving for the pinnacle. Are your business strategies, actions producing the results you want?

Ruled by Saturn, the planet of boundaries and life lessons (not always fun, but can be maturing), see this Capricorn Moon transit as an opportunity to show your stuff. Use the authoritarian energy to accomplish, complete and be a great boss. Being ambitious is not a negative. Like everything else, it depends on how it’s handled. Be nice to your employees (or family members that you’ve organized and roped into assisting with chores). Assign tasks, give directions, move with confidence and purpose. Don’t forget to say “thank you”.  

Have a powerful weekend!



Scorpio Full Moon – Go Passionate, Go Deep!

Astro Moon FullThings might get a little intense on Wednesday May 14, 2014. Scorpio, a passionate water sign, can be emotional and sensitive and the force of a Full Moon can distill all that power into a cauldron of “feelings”.  All that energy can go off the charts. Tuck in all exposed nerves. Don’t take everything personally. During a Full Moon, gauge what has been accomplished so far and move to finalize, complete tasks in the next few weeks. Use Scorpio’s focus and determination to figure out what to keep and what to throw away (meaning – discard whatever is no longer useful.) Letting go is not necessarily giving up.



Social Libra Moon This weekend!

Astro New Moon CrescentSaturday and Sunday, May 10 and 11, 2014, the Moon will be in Venus ruled Libra. It’s an artistic, relationship focused, charming Air sign fostering harmony with others and harmony for the home. We are moved toward good feelings, people activities, beauty and creativity. Smile and enjoy it.

Have a beautiful weekend!



Saturday & Sunday Moon In Cancer

Astro New Moon CrescentMay 3 and 4, 2014 could be a weekend of emotional mood swings, creativity and/or over the top hospitality as the Moon settles into the nurturing Water sign it rules = Cancer. We may experience feelings of sensitivity and vulnerability, but don’t use it as an excuse to indulge in some emotional over eating.

Rather than looking for hurt feelings – your own or anyone else’s – be proactive. Unleash the inner artist and you can always cook, set a pretty table. It’s the perfect outlet for all that “nurture” driven energy. Decide to make family, friends, and yourself comfortable and happy. You’ll enjoy it.

Have a fulfilling weekend!
