Brace for a tidal wave of verbiage on the Full Moon at 07° 24′ Virgo on 25 February 2013, 12:26 PM PST. Jupiter in ever chatty Gemini square the lunar axis is the source. It looks to be one of those times when everyone has an opinion and no problem sharing it.
Another factor promoting endless dialogue is a Mercury-Mars conjunction in mutable Pisces. Mercury is a couple of days into one of its retrograde periods, pushing communications to the forefront for better or worse. Whenever Mars conjoins Mercury words can end [...]
What we have this week is an unfolding of all aspects in the chart of the Full Moon in Aquarius . . . an exploded diagram as it were.
First is the awkward inconjunct between the Leo Sun and Pluto in Capricorn. Leo and Capricorn just do not “get” each other. When Leo is in charge doing the kingly thing, it loves being right in the middle of the action, dispensing rulings right and left. This makes Capricorn very uneasy because they prefer to operate almost in the background, letting their underlings deliver their [...]
If you have a significant Chiron aspect natally as I do, the small centaur planetoid will occasionally speak up and remind you he is there and is not to be ignored.

For some reason Capricorn has become associated with the need for dominance and competition, especially in the professional arena. But there is another side to this pragmatic sign, much deeper and wilder and intensely creative. There is an earthy, passionate sensuality with the [...]
This week’s question comes from Stan in California:
My finances are shot, I’m collecting unemployment, and I have no interest in getting my license to start my own private practice in clinical psychology, as I have “burned out” on being a clinician. I want to make a shift to academia for the intellectual stimulation and challenge and be in a place where I can teach. I know I have the ability and experience and that I need to refresh my knowledge base. Yet, in the last six months, I don’t feel like I’ve done enough, read enough, or retained [...]
