1st Day Of Spring – Sun Into Aries 3/20/17!

On Monday March 20, 2017, not only do we get to welcome the youthfulness of Spring, we also get to celebrate the Sun’s transit into Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac.

Fire sign Aries is active, aggressive and adventurous. In the past 12 months, the Sun has transited all 12 Zodiac signs and at 1 degree of Aries, the cycle starts anew and so can we. We should keep our eyes open for opportunities on the horizon.

Ruled by the warrior planet Mars, the influences of Aries’ high energy can be used to springboard ideas and projects that have been percolating all winter. However, with unpredictable, non conformist planet Uranus visiting until 2019, recklessness, with the often resulting scattered energies can result in waste – time, energy, money. Pay attention to those urges to just “act” (act out or act up). Action with purpose and focus, rather than just because we’re bored. Risk vs reckless – don’t be careless.

Adding potential snap and crackle to interactions is clever, Communication planet Mercury visiting Aries until 4/01/17. Writing, speaking, tweeting may have more quickness, bite and sarcasm then usual. No need to hurt anyone’s feelings. No one needs to go down in relationship flames.

As always, those most affected have the Sun and/or Rising sign in Aries, but the rest of us will still feel the feisty vibes somewhere in our lives depending upon where the Fire sign appears in our chart.

FYI – In celebration of the ancient art of Astrology, March 20th is designated as “International Astrology Day”. Cake & Champagne for all!

 

Aquarius Moon This Weekend – Think “Unexpected”

Astro New Moon CrescentIf preparing for the unexpected makes you nervous, just think of the fun you can have. Beginning Saturday, 12/3/16, the Aquarius Moon gives us an opportunity to let go of convention, do some “out of the box” thinking, focus on the welfare of others and be a little rebellious.

Air sign Aquarius has a stubborn streak (it is one of three “Fixed” signs of the Zodiac, along with Taurus and Scorpio) and is ruled by the unpredictable planet Uranus. It’s all about independence, sudden changes of direction, etc. Relax, go with the flow. Give more attention to another Aquarian trait which is contributing to the universe in some way.  Groups, other people and their causes are a natural concern. Not a bad way to spend a weekend – be spontaneous, share yourself !

 

Full Moon in Avant-garde, Activist Aquarius, 8/18/16

Astro Full Moon 6A Full Moon on Thursday August 18, 2016 is in the revolutionary 11th sign of the Zodiac – independent, unconventional Aquarius. Its influence will be noticed.

Retrograde Uranus, this Air sign’s planet ruler, hates constrictions and thrives on the unusual, which can be exciting but precarious. Before jumping to the front lines, pause and reflect – is the issue real for you, or is the response automatic / knee jerk. You can still volunteer, organize, make a difference, do the “No Justice, No Peace” chant without falling off the edge.

And, a Full Moon phase is great for completing projects.

Aquarius Sun 1/20/16 – Freedom Energy!

astrology_chartwheel 2The Sun rallies into intellectual, team focused, Air sign Aquarius on Wednesday January 20, 2016. The 11th sign of the Zodiac is ruled by the unpredictable, unconventional, undeniably radical planet Uranus. It’s all about independence, the resentment of all “ties that bind”, a love of sudden changes of direction and thinking “outside of the box”. Expect the unexpected.

Aquarius has a stubborn streak. It is one of three “Fixed” signs of the Zodiac, along with Taurus and Scorpio. While the urge to stand ground and refuse to follow along are all present, give attention to another trait which is the desire to contribute to the universe in some way. Groups, communities and their causes are a natural concern for Aquarius. (It is about “We/Us” rather than “I/Me.) There is determination to resolve issues that are deemed important. Regardless of your birthday, we can all tap into those vibrations as the Sun intensifies this sign’s influences.

Marching for a cause, taking risks, being on the edge, or ledge – all sounds intense, but it can be done with warmth and humor. If you’re going to spend time enrolling people into saving the world, you might as well have fun doing it.

BTW: don’t get confused – even though the Astrology symbol is the “Water Bearer”, Aquarius is an Air sign!

1st Mercury Retrograde Of 2015 (Until 2/11)

Just a reminder: Mercury Retrograde, which began on 1/21/15, lasts until 2/11/15. The Communication planet stopped motion and appeared to go backwards in the sky in the unpredictable, revolutionary, group oriented, Air sign of Aquarius. The areas of life affected are the usual Mercury influenced things – speaking / writing, travel, transportation, education, manual dexterity, small electrical gadgets, etc. With Aquarius, ruled by erratic, eccentric Uranus, in the mix, personal interaction misunderstandings and technical snafus are even more prone to happen. As mentioned in a previous post, some preparation can help. Back up, double check, confirm. Try to avoid disasters and mayhem with diligence and care until the winged planet goes Direct again.

Astro Planet Glyphs 2Organization is key. Copy your files now, locate the  chargers (make sure they still work for the gadgets your have), set aside extra ink for the printer, check the batteries in the pacemaker, make sure the bills are paid, etc. Don’t create problems because of carelessness.

As always, Mercury Retrograde is a good time to make future plans, complete projects and of course to exercise all those “re” actions: re evaluate, re write, re assess, re acquaint, re fresh. Take the time to pause and reflect, rather than jump into new schemes, new contracts, etc.

However, life happens regardless of what planets are doing. Be present, be aware and we will get through to the other side, again.

Aquarius Sun 1/20/15 – Freedom & Revolution Rules!

The symbol for the 11th sign of the Zodiac is the “Water Bearer”, astrology_chartwheel 2it may be confusing, but Aquarius is definitely an Air sign ruled by the unpredictable, unconventional, undeniably radical planet Uranus. It’s all about independence, the resentment of all “ties that bind”, a love of sudden changes of direction and thinking “outside of the box”. What a way to start the New Year!

Aquarius has a stubborn streak. It is one of three “Fixed” signs of the Zodiac, along with Taurus and Scorpio. While the urge to stand ground and refuse to follow along are all present, give attention to another trait which is the desire to contribute to the universe in some way. Groups, other people and their causes are a natural concern for Aquarius. (It is about “We/Us” rather than “I/Me.) There is determination to resolve issues that are deemed important. Regardless of your birthday, we can all tap into those vibrations as the Sun intensifies this sign’s influences.

And, just to add some additional spice, there will be planets transiting the 11th sign: Mercury will add its cleverness and communication / networking expertise until March 12, 2015 (just remember that it will go into Retrograde motion on 1/21/15. Be clear in speech and written word when rallying your team.) Venus’ visit, until January 27, 2015, can add a calm and a sweetness to fiery rhetoric, solidifying relationships in the midst of revolutionary zeal. If you’re intent upon enrolling people into saving the world, you might as well have fun doing it.

Aries Full Moon 10/8/14 – Hold On…

Astro Moon total Lunar Eclipse Blood MoonThis month’s Full Moon, a total Lunar Eclipse (Blood Moon), is in Fire sign Aries. The 1st sign of the Zodiac is ruled by “Warrior” planet Mars. Combustible, physical and aggressive, this sign’s usual “in your face” traits will be intensified by the power of a “Full” phase and also by unpredictable transiting Uranus.  Even though currently retrograde, until 12/21/14, it still can be full of surprises and urges for revolution.

Do the suggested Full Moon things – finish up old projects, clarify any fuzzy ideas that keep hanging around (remember Mercury is Retrograde now, so this is a good time to review). Use the extra Aries energy and take action. By clearing out useless stuff, you create space for the “new” ideas, things, spaces, people. However, forceful Aries can be a little over the top sometimes. Don’t torch everything while trying to weed out the old, think things through before the ashes start to float around.

Full Moon in Ambitious Capricorn!

Astro Moon FullThe Moon is in Capricorn today – it’s all about status, authority and work. To make these traits even more intense, the Lunar orb will be “Full” in this Saturn ruled sign on Saturday July 12, 2014. (The Sun is in Cancer and the Moon is lit up with reflected light in its opposite sign.) Our thoughts lean towards managing career, long term goals, creating success (whatever that means to you) and reaching for the top. Are your business strategies, actions producing results? Full Moon in Capricorn is a good time to think about it and then take any needed action when the Moon is in its “New” phase, 7/26/14.

Later this weekend, the Moon will be in Uranus ruled, freedom loving Aquarius. The 11th sign of the Zodiac urges us to be unconventional, unpredictable and unwilling to conform. If you’re going to rebel, make sure that there is substance.

Have a marvelous weekend!

Aquarius Sun – A Walk On The Wild Side!

astrology_chartwheel 2The Sun enters unpredictable, independent Aquarius on Sunday January 19, 2014 – but not necessarily wild and crazy. It doesn’t have to be outrageous and out of the box, however, we can be original, inventive and sometimes revolutionary when under the influence of the Airy, 11th sign of the Zodiac. Don’t be surprised, Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the planet of sudden changes and unexpected events. We can all tap into these vibrations regardless of our personal Sun sign.

Aquarians tend to be more intellectual than emotional, with a concern for others that is authentic and matter of fact. A stubborn, people oriented sign, they care, they are involved and they can be pretty determined to find resolutions to issues that touch them. All about team, caring about neighbors and the community is the Aquarian way of being. We may feel an urge to join a rally, march and protest for any cause deemed to be just.

Freedom loving Aquarians are great to have around. Taking risks, being on the edge, or ledge – sounds intense, but it’s done with humor. If you’re going to spend time enrolling people into saving the world, you might as well have fun doing it.

Weekend Aquarius Moon 11/8/13

Astro New Moon CrescentUse Friday and Saturday’s Aquarius Moon and take advantage of the rebellious, independent urges that this Uranus ruled, unpredictable Air sign creates to explore new places, new things, new people, new ways of thinking. The aloof and intellectual 11th sign of the Zodiac is naturally group focused and concerned with contributing to the community. Get involved.

On Sunday night, the Moon moves into sensitive, impressionable, Water sign Pisces. Don’t let “feelings” overwhelm you or lose your grip on the real. Neptune ruled Pisces is often dreamy and imaginative. Keep grounded.

Have a great weekend!
