Aries Full Moon: Born This Way

I was feeling very vulnerable last week, struggling with feeling too open and too emotionally raw. You know those times when you feel too tender, too fragile, when just about anything can set you over the edge? I was on that edge. Then I watched Lady Gaga’s new...

Vesta Wants Your Devotion

It’s relatively easy to match certain archetypes to well-known people who carry their signature. Pallas, healer, warrior and Amazon Queen? Wonder Woman, of course. Ceres, the Great Mother? I chose Beyonce, but there are others who would fit. I’ll nominate Frida Kahlo...

Virgo New Moon: Humble Harvest

Astraea, the Goddess associated with Virgo, was the last immortal to live on Earth, until she left in disgust, so disturbed by humanity’s wickedness, evil and corruption. Being a Virgo, she probably also developed a physical ailment from all the pollution and...

The Divine Venus in Virgo

Venus is in Virgo from September 19 - October 13, 2017 If Venus in Leo is all about the bling, the Virgin sets the record straight. Virgo is, foremost, a realist, hardly diving into love affairs without considering how her potential paramour fits into the rest of her...

A Temple for Neptune

If you enter a room to get something only to forget why you went in; if you discover mid-sentence that you’ve lost your train of thought entirely; if you lost yet another several hours or days doing...(yes, what exactly were you doing?) it’s probably not early...

Pisces Full Moon: Do Nothing

At the end of each summer, like clockwork, I used to anticipate surviving the fall. Thinking about back-to-school, carpooling kids, back-to-school events, weekend social calendars, travel plans… as life spun like a top perilously close to the edge of the table, I...

Leo New Moon Eclipse: Play Bigger

Aquarius Full Moon: The Call of Truth

Last December I did something bold, and something absolutely terrifying. I told my husband I wanted to move. Out of state. Away from California, our home for twenty years. Actually, I had been telling him I wanted to move for months, but I wasn’t being received. He...

Two Leo New Moons (one’s an eclipse!): Say Yes to You

It takes tremendous courage to put our self out there, to trust we won’t be rejected for who we are. We can all understand insecurity of worrying about our worth, abilities, what others think; Leo doesn’t hold the patent on that. And we don’t have to be a Leo to tear a page from this playbook. We are in an astrological period of intense Leo activity for the next month. On 7/23 we have this first New Moon at zero degrees, and a second New Moon Solar Eclipse at 29 degrees Leo on 8/21.
