In the midst of her second Saturn Return and looking wonderful!
When I was pondering this week’s Yod featuring Venus in Leo, Cyndi Lauper’s song about girls just wanting to have fun came to mind and of course, I checked out her chart. Turns out she is a Cancer Sun person with a deep Scorpio Moon camouflaged by an individualistic Aquarius Rising! Not what I would have guessed (for an astrologer, I’m really lousy at guessing people’s Sun and Rising signs . . . see too deeply I guess.)
Though there is some question as to the accuracy [...]

I was going to write a lighthearted article about Taurus and gardening but instead I find myself writing about Pluto once more probably due to Mercury squaring Pluto this morning and this week’s Grand Trine with Pluto in Capricorn, Mars in Virgo and the Sun in Taurus.
That is one sweet Grand Trine in earth! It demonstrates all the wonderful possibilities of the three earth signs working together. Taurus is naturally good at being productive; Virgo acts as both quality control and the middle man with Capricorn overseeing the whole operation. Whilst this may [...]

How easy we will get off depends on how the other planets aspect each of the lunations and this Full Moon in Taurus is being squared by the Neptune-Chiron conjunction [...]
Waking up this morning to Venus back in Libra and an email from a reader asking about sextiles and trines in synastry, it seems like an excellent time to take a look at the difference between these two harmonious aspects in synastry vs. in the natal chart.
We find trines between signs in the same element and sextiles between friendly elements, i.e., air signs Gemini and Libra are trine and air sign Gemini is sextile fire sign Leo. In essence this makes a dialogue between those signs pleasant and the ability to find common ground easy.
In a natal [...]
