Full Moon in Libra

When I first started learning astrology when I was 11, Libra was always one of the signs I would get confused about. It confused me that it was an air sign, rather than an earth sign.

Balance has seemed like such an earthly thing to me from that point until just recently, when it has been made very apparent as to why Libra is an air sign…

December: Supermoon in Gemini, Mercury Retro, and More!

Happy December!

Oof does this month get interesting. In a great way. Time to do the Big Work, folks.

Firstly, today, 1 December 2017, Venus enters Sagittarius. This will give us room to breathe and let our passion take us wherever it wants to instead of being in the throws of the intensity that was Venus in Scorpio. So… good news: Venus in Sag makes way for us to have fun in our love life, creative passions, and our relationship with ourselves.

11 April 2017 Full Moon, End of Venus Retrograde, the Beginning of Saturn Retrograde, the Beginning of Mercury Retrograde, and Understanding Portal Days

With Mercury, Saturn and Venus in retrograde at the same time, what we are doing is looking at our patterns, facing our lessons, facing our selves, questioning what we really want out of life, discarding things that are not serving us, and having to put forth more effort into communicating with each other. The full moon in Libra falling on the 11th will illuminate all of this and help to bring it to a pinnacle where you can really vacillate with freedom between your choices before collaborating with your higher self, your inner knowing, and any astral friends (or guides or whatever you might have helping you on the other side of the veil) to make any important judgments or decisions you might need to make in order to move forward in the most direct and pleasing way on your path….

When Mr.Mercury Comes to Visit and Goes Retro.. Plus, a Tidbit on the New Moon in Capricorn

So, some of us can only laugh at this point. After everything else the planets have done this year, Mercury decided to end 2016 with a bang. The planet Mercury started retrograde last week on 19 December 2016, and will not go direct until 8 January 2017. And what better timing? Mercury in retrograde has marched through to trudge that last bit of hidden darkness up into the open light so that we will bring the year 2016 out with a brilliant close, and the new year of 2017 will fizzle in under that same brilliance.

For those of you who are unfamiliar, Mercury Retrograde is when gravity affects the rotation of the planet Mercury in relation to the planet earth. The pull makes it so that Mercury’s rotation “slows down”, (at least from our point of view on earth,) and thus makes it look and feel as though it is going backwards in rotation behind earth around the sun for a few weeks. Because the planet Mercury affects both technology and communication, the effects of its retrograde are that we can experience lots of miscommunications with people (which make it real fun during the holidays with family and friends, doesn’t it??) and difficulties or breakdowns in technology, i.e. car troubles, phone whacking out, water spilled on laptop, internet outages, etc….
