Another Powerful Scorpio Moon This Weekend!

Astro moon-waning-crescent-lEarly Saturday morning, May 30, 2015, the Lunar orb sizzles into sensitive, sensual Scorpio for the weekend. When the Moon is in the 8th sign of the Zodiac, we can be focused and intense, so going after whom or what you want is just the way it has to be. No obstacle too high, no stone buried too deep. Use Scorpio’s passionate, seductive energy wisely. Leave the flame thrower in the closet.

Is there anything you want to find out? Search for anyone? Uncover a mystery? A Scorpio Moon provides the determination and willfulness to discover and handle truths. Secrets are not safe from this Pluto ruled Water sign. No hiding allowed. Some feathers may be ruffled, but the impulse to drill down and get to the bottom of whatever will be hard to deny.

Have a super weekend!

 

Celebrate * Gemini Sun 5/21/15

On Thursday May 21, 2015, the Sun bounces into the fun, flirty, focus challenged, flexible, flighty third sign of the Zodiac. The natural versatility of Gemini, with its willingness to adapt, keeps the wrinkles, both mental and physical, at bay. While under its influence, we will feel encouraged, regardless of birth sign, to teach, learn, meet and greet, read and write, chat too much/gossip too much and try to be in two places at once (that Castor/Pollux, “twins” thing). And don’t forget travel, whether it be real or arm chair, the search for greener grass will be enticing.

astrology_chartwheel 2Our social interaction becomes even more important as planet ruler Mercury, (communications, education, short journeys) transits Gemini until 7/8/15. Also, warrior planet Mars (force, impatience, leadership) visits until 6/25/15. This Air sign’s tendency towards smart ass cleverness is legendary – so watch any urges to indulge in snarky, aggressive verbal or twitter smack downs regardless of how amusing you think they might be. (Then you have to spend time retracting, erasing, apologizing…)

This can be such a good time, but also exhausting. Rather than rush around feeling overwhelmed or scattered, hit the pause button occasionally, re focus, complete tasks that need to be finished, then go on to the next. Half done is half accomplished.

Mercury Retrograde, 5/18/15 – YAY! !

Astro Planet Glyphs 2No, I haven’t lost my grip. Instead of bemoaning Monday’s arrival of Mercury Retrograde in Gemini, the Air sign it rules, as the potential snafu of all time, I’m changing my approach. I will look on the good side. Rather than rushing, yelling and screaming, to my computer to “back it up” before the sky falls, I will make good use of whatever positive energy the universe will provide during the communication planet’s backward sojourn thru the heavens.

This Mercury Retrograde can offer us the opportunity to re visit any abandoned conversations – “let’s discuss this at a better time”, (never happened) or writings (any “Thank You” notes pending?). Re evaluate those unfinished brainstorming lists, middle of the night “great” ideas, etc. Re think the language of any future speeches or pitches – is it clear, to the point, got substance?

However, with combative Mars transiting the clever, chatty 3rd sign 0f the Zodiac until 6/25/15, we still need to be alert. No need to foster confusion and mischief just because of not paying attention. Watch what you say, watch what you write. Double check directions, be prepared for transportation delays. Don’t sign any contracts unless absolutely necessary and not until its read very carefully. And finally, YES – back up your tech stuff! ASAP!

BTW: Mercury just “appears” to go backwards. Planets only move forward, however, due to the earth’s changing speed as it orbits around the Sun, the positions are such that it looks like a reverse motion from earth.

Scorpio Full Moon 5/3/15 – Intense!

Astro Moon FullThe Taurus Sun is reflected in the opposite Scorpio Moon = a beautiful Full orb in the passionate, emotional 8th sign of the Zodiac. Ruled by transformational planet Pluto, (traditional ruler is warrior planet Mars) there are deep feelings, focus and determination influencing us during this lunar phase with energy to spare. A Full Moon is a good time to figure out what to keep and what to throw away (discard whatever is no longer meaningful, useful, and / or beneficial.) Gauge what has been accomplished since the New Moon and move on to finalize and complete tasks in the next few weeks.

Scorpio also pushes us to focus on money matters that may involve others. Are there any financial issues that need to be cleared or settled– taxes, business ventures? Does anyone owe you anything? Time to collect?
