From Mercury Retrograde Fog To Fun July 4th Weekend!

Finally, finally, Mercury stops its Retrograde motion as of July 1, 2014 and goes Direct. Don’t get sloppy now and forget to the check details, back up electronic gadgets or assume you know best “the way to San Jose” without  a map. It will take a few days for Mercury’s winged feet to get up to forward speed and dispel any murkiness we’ve had to deal with for the last 3 weeks. So continue vigilance and watch out for any snafus. However, by the Holiday weekend, things are clearer and the pace quickens. There is great potential for any social occasion that might pop up – the Moon will be in Venus ruled, charming, flirtatious Libra early Friday morning July 4th....more

New Moon in Cancer – Ooh Feelings!

Cancer Moon on Friday June 27, 2014 and when both luminaries, Sun and Moon, are in the same sign, the Moon is designated as “New”. As always during this Moon phase, we are encouraged to begin a project, launch an idea and with sensitive, family focused Water sign Cancer, it will probably involve something close to home. Emotions may be very close to the surface, nerve endings exposed – “Feelings, whoa, whoa feeeeelings…”.  Be careful not to over react if friends, loved ones seem clueless and tactless during this time, but do pay attention to your heightened instincts....more

Sun Into Cancer 6/21/14 - Summer Solstice

Yes, the “livin’ is easy” as we greet the Summer Solstice, Saturday June 21, 2014. Besides being the longest day of the year, in the Northern Hemisphere, it also means the Sun has moved into the sign of Cancer, the Moon ruled 4th sign of the Zodiac. This Water sign is emotional, moody, nurturing, concerned with home and family. I think Cancers make good actors – all those deep, vibrating feelings can be released by playing out their secret selves on stage. We will all be under this sign’s sensitive and caring influences until July 22, 2014. ...more

Zodiac Power Colors and Gemstones

Just about everyone knows their Astrology Sun Sign based upon their date of birth. But there are also certain gemstones and colors that express each sign. (The gems listed next to the Sun Sign may vary from the traditional “Birth Month” stone) ...more

Full Moon AND Friday the 13th AND Mercury Retrograde? Oh No!

Oh no?! Just kidding!  Regardless of the stories about full moons and what they do to us, we won’t necessarily grow fangs or act out. The Sagittarius Moon will be fully lit by the Sun in the opposite sign Gemini – very dramatic, but nothing to fear.  And “Triskaidekaphobia” is just that,  a phobia. Image: Shutterstock ...more

Here We Go Again: Mercury Retrograde 6/7/14!

Retrograde Mercury strikes again on June 7, 2014, the 2nd of the year. It begins in Water sign Cancer – emotions, family, friends, the past. Then on 6/17, the planet backs into the Air sign it rules, Gemini, until 7/1 when Mercury, planet of communication, short trips, siblings, goes Direct. We can deal, we can handle, we will survive it! Again....more

New Moon in Loquacious Gemini 5/28/14

Yes, I could have just used the word “Chatty”, however, Wednesday’s New Moon, with start up, initiating energy, will be in Communication focused Gemini. The Moon is considered “New” when the Sun and Moon are in the same Zodiac sign and this time is great for new ideas and implementing new projects. Just be sure to verify whatever information comes your way before taking action. We will certainly be spurred on to share thoughts, feelings, stories at length regardless of who wants to listen. So get your facts straight. (Short and sweet works best sometimes....more

Weekend Moon in Aries and Taurus – Crackle & Practicality

Beginning on Friday May 23, 2014, the Moon vibrates in energetic Fire sign Aries for most of the weekend. As always with Aries, ruled by “warrior planet” Mars, make sure you have something physical to do. All this sign’s energy can make it a fun time, but just reign in any aggressive urges, think before you act. Power down occasionally so that loved ones don’t feel that they are in the presence of a bulldozer, but by all means, take advantage of the action....more

Gemini Sun 5/20/14 - Let The Multi Tasking Begin!

Gemini has the sign of the “twins” as its Astrology symbol and while the Sun is in this 3rd sign of the Zodiac, we will all have the urge to double the fun regardless of our actual birth sign. The characteristic youthfulness of Gemini, they usually look younger than their age, has nothing to do with immaturity. It is a curiosity for new places and things, the enjoyment of doing several things at once and the willingness to adapt that keeps the wrinkles, mental and physical, at bay. Fun, flirty, festivity loving, focus challenged, flexible, flighty (Full disclosure – I have a Gemini Sun, so I’m really having fun w/ this :)...more

Take Charge Capricorn Moon This Weekend!

 Saturday and Sunday, May 17 & 18, 2014, we will be in the serious embrace of a Capricorn Moon. The 10th sign of the Zodiac has ambitious yearnings. The agenda involves managing career, creating success (whatever that means to you) and striving for the pinnacle. Are your business strategies, actions producing the results you want?...more
