Scorpio New Moon: Season of Long Shadows

Posted by & filed under Lunar Phases, New Moon, Scorpio.

I don’t want to live in an immortal world. I want to mourn my dead, savagely, because I had the pleasure of loving them so dearly. I want to fight death because I’m determined to embrace life ecstatically. I want to proceed with joy into everything that makes life difficult, because they are the same things that make life dear.

Libra New Moon: The Leap of Love

Posted by & filed under Jupiter, Libra, Lunar Phases, New Moon.

The Libra New Moon is close to Jupiter, which recently entered Libra for a one-year stay.

But anytime someone starts talking about how wonderful a transit is going to be, it makes me itchy….

Virgo New Moon: Solitude and the Contented Heart

Posted by & filed under Eclipses, Lunar Phases, New Moon, Virgo.

Where Virgo falls in your birthchart, you are complete. Here, you’re absorbed in the happy work of problem solving, figuring stuff out, and making things work.

Posted by & filed under Cancer, Lunar Phases, New Moon, Pluto.

How is it that when we think of soulmates, our parents seldom come to mind? Or for that matter, siblings, first cousins, and the grade school nemesis who unfailingly edged us out as the top student in our class?

Gemini New Moon: Pinwheels

Posted by & filed under Gemini, Lunar Phases, New Moon.

Nothing in this month’s planetary picture should discourage you from brain- storming your Gemini heart out. But it may be the case that one idea immediately collides with another, and then another, and another, until your mind is racing and you feel like you did as a kid, spinning around and around until you collapsed dizzily on the front lawn….

Aries New Moon: The One We Feed

Posted by & filed under Aries, New Moon.

Striking balance at this Aries New Moon offers some vital challenges. Instead of exciting your lower instincts with messages of anger, attacks, and retaliation, feed your positive Aries warrior wolf by taking positive action to support your beliefs. There is a fight going on inside you, and me, and every other person, too. Which wolf will win? The one we feed….

Who’s Afraid of the Big, Bad Eclipse?

Posted by & filed under Eclipses, Lunar Phases, New Moon.

Though eclipses are dramatic and interesting, few of them are truly life-changing. For many of us, this Solar Eclipse will come and go with some mild emotional disruption and perhaps some unexpected developments in some area of life, and that’s about it. But watch your chart closely over a number of years, and you learn to identify its hot spots. And this particular eclipse triggers one of mine….
