Libra New Moon: Love Is

I’ve been making a lot of decisions to do things differently, lately. I made a decision to quit my guitar class. It was a difficult one because I really enjoy learning guitar. In fact, I enjoyed riding my little beach bike to the university twice a week with guitar on...

Aries Full Moon: Anchor Your Energy

I recently visited Santa Fe again, my hometown. I love the high, mountainous, desert. The energy is so clear and earthy, and truly I charge up my grounding cords for the coming year when I visit. Sitting in the patio enclosure, feet on the warm brick floor with a...

Virgo New Moon: I Am Okay

I was at a beach, the topaz blue waves gently lapping, when I happened to overhear a conversation between the two women next to me. “I’ve been so screwed up...something something... Mercury retrograde...something something...I just can't figure things out,” said the...

Pisces Full Moon: Paradise Lost and Found

I took my first inter-island trip this past weekend, alone, to Kauai, a neighboring isle. My rental car, a huge boat of a Cadillac, belonged in Texas not backroad beaches, was what I call a “God car"-- a big boss of a car. It set the tone for the trip. I figured this...

Leo New Moon Eclipse: Spread Your Wings

My relationship with my creative identity has been in flux for awhile now. I notice I am no longer comfortable calling myself an “astrologer”, and not because I don’t have the technical expertise of my craft, the years of experience or ability. But because this...

Aquarius Full Moon Eclipse: Full Stop

I had been looking forward to attending a concert all week. I had even gotten buy-in from my husband, whose musical tastes are vastly different from mine (we have Venus square Venus), so this was an exciting and huge accomplishment in and of itself! Yet by the time...

Cancer New Moon Eclipse: Feel The Love

The thing about living in Hawaii is... everyone wants to visit. Your brother from another mother. Your fifth cousin three times removed who just found you on Ancestry.com. Everyone. All this visiting has lit up my Aries-Libra-Cancer chart like a pinball machine. In my...

Mars Wants Your Attention!

I was out in the ocean with my precocious Gemini niece. She loves the water, but today she was being clingy and climbing all over me. I asked her to stop; being a climbing gym for a five year old just doesn’t feel good! But she didn’t listen. I got frustrated, angry....

Capricorn Full Moon: Dancing With Pele

Every few days or so I’ll receive a concerned email, asking: Are you okay? The Kilauea volcano is erupting, as it has continuously for decades, the last eruption was in 2014, lasting several months. The islands were formed by volcanic eruptions, so volcanoes erupting...

Sagittarius Full Moon: Intuition

To the uninitiated, downtown Waikiki is a surprise; people don’t exactly expect a cosmopolitan urban center in the middle of the ocean. One first timer, describing her experience, said it felt like Las Vegas. For many, this part of Honolulu doesn’t match the...

Taurus New Moon: Down to Earth

It hit me that I was now living in Hawaii. I mean, it finally hit me. I literally thought, “What have I done?” It wasn’t the move itself; the move was an external result of years of inner change. I was keening from changes that had been slowly happening over the...

Scorpio Full Moon: Shedding Old Skin

I went for a hike in the rainforest yesterday. It was a rare, rain-free morning, the sun shining on the shimmering jewels of palm leaves and red ginger flowers. I had been stressed over a hard decision I needed to make. I asked my heart for honesty and it had spoken;...

Aries New Moon: Is That Your Ego Talking?

This Aries Mercury retrograde period has had me engaging old habits, ones I thought I’d moved on from... but as the saying goes, “old habits die hard." A project I’d taken on has several components that I’m not totally aligned with, and I found myself, on numerous...

9 Things To Do While Venus is in Taurus

The sensual, physical world is your oyster while Venus transits the sign of Taurus (3/30-4/23 in 2018). Taurus is Venus' home sign, which confers dignity upon all Venusian activities (art, pleasure, creativity, beauty, abundance, sensuality) undertaken during this...

Libra Full Moon: Your Golden Shadow

One of the most eye-opening, joy-inducing experiences of moving to a new location has been re-realizing what it feels like to be living in a just right resonant environment. In California, life had become unnecessarily hard. Even the littlest things, like going to the...

Pisces New Moon: Go Gently

This week, I had a day that devolved into an energetic reaction against putting too much of my focus outside of myself. For the last many months, thanks to a tough Saturn-Mars square, I’d honed my capacity and newly discovered ability, for managing the details of...

Venus-Chiron: Bleed for Love

Venus and Chiron have been dancing together in the sky and this hasn’t been a make-out party. Because Pluto has been square my Chiron, my Venus-Chiron configuration has been dominating my awareness (Venus in Cancer, my chart ruler, is in the tenth house, square...

What’s So Bad About Feeling Good?

“I know it sounds like I’m sticking my head in the sand, but I’ve stopped listening to the news, and I’m just doing what I enjoy...” A client said this to me today, and I replied "good!" But why the self-admonition? Her statement reflected a consciousness circulating...

Virgo Full Moon: Let’s Lighten Up

It’s a gentle Sunday morning. The cuckoos coo, and the heavily Piscean energy invites lingering over coffee and puttering around the house all day long. Reading comics is a new habit I’ve adopted since moving here. It’s a gauge of how much lighter the energy is, here,...
