We have one week left before Mars leaves Aries for Taurus on 11 May and those who have been enjoying moving at top speed need to prepare themselves for the slow down, while others can hardly WAIT for that to happen!
Mars remains within shouting distance of Jupiter in Aries this last week and is also being cheered on by Mercury and Venus traveling hand in hand in Aries. This is wonderful if you have a chart full of fire signs and/or cardinal signs, making it possible to enjoy this bold, forward [...]
Venus spent a long time, a very long time, in my twelfth house – a little over four months in fact. Even though she emerged and crossed my Ascendant about a week ago, I am just now starting to “wake up”.
I have been paying more attention to Venus the past few years, partly because she does rule Libra where both my Sun and Moon fall and partly because I feel she has far more clout than I had previously given this lovely planet credit for.
Venus is traditionally a beneficent but she is far more [...]
In six days both Venus and Jupiter will station direct within about five hours of each other and I can hardly wait because Venus retrogrades gradually wear me down.

Perhaps Venus has been biding her time to air a number of grievances she has and will use this moment to do so. With Jupiter and Uranus inconjunct Venus, this tactic may backfire in a couple of ways. Firstly, because Jupiter and Uranus are in sensitive Pisces, [...]
This year we get Uranus turning direct, a dashing New Moon in Sagittarius and here in the States, Thanksgiving, all on the same day. Now why do I get the feeling I’m going to be most grateful on Friday! I have been the chief cook for this event for many years and this time around is no exception.
Uranus is stationing in my fourth house and this is the year my younger sister says she can’t eat dairy products anymore so please plan accordingly. I made a pumpkin pie with soy creamer for starters and plan [...]
The summer solstice is the moment when the Sun enters Cancer. It’s the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere; the longest night in the Southern Hemisphere.
A chart cast for this moment gives us a sense of the tone for the next six months. Because Cancer is ruled by the Moon, the aspects to the Moon in the solstice chart are important. Here, we find the Moon in late Capricorn widely conjunct Jupiter. The Moon is also part of a Yod with Mars in Leo at the apex. Uranus in Pisces is sextile the Moon [...]
