New Moon Plus 5 Planets in Pisces – Wow!

Monday’s New Moon, March 11, 2013, is in Pisces. It won’t be alone.

This sensitive, dreamy, imaginative Water sign makes it a perfect time to explore the spiritual while grounding ourselves in real life. Take notes and write down suddenly vivid, technicolor  dreams, but keep a grip, don’t float away in a haze....more

How To Survive The First Mercury Retrograde of 2013

Another “first” for 2013 – the first Mercury Retrograde period officially began on Saturday February 23 and continues until March 17, 2013. It occurs 3 times annually and this time, our Communication planet goes backward in the sensitive, imaginative, impressionable Water sign of Pisces. Mercury is not just associated with reading and writing, but is also connected to travel and transportation, education, manual dexterity, small electrical gadgets, etc. We just need to pay extra attention to the details to get thru without too many mishaps.  ...more

Last Mercury Retrograde of 2012 – On Election Day!

It happened in 2000 (remember those "hanging chads"?) and it happens again on Tuesday, November 6. Mercury goes “backward” on the day we vote. This is the planet of communication, travel, manual skills, fact gathering and analysis – things that have to do with being with people, places and things. When Retrograde, the possibilities for confusion, frustration, impatience are heightened. However, we can prepare ourselves so that fallout is reduced. We just need to be careful and pay attention. It can be done!...more

What is Mercury in Retrograde and How Does it Affect You?

Mercury in retrograde gets blamed for all sorts of things, but is it really as bad as it has been made out to be?  What does it mean when the planet Mercury is in retrograde and how can you ride the wave instead of getting dumped out in the ocean with your head (and everything else) wet?...more

Hang On To Your Hats! Mercury Is In Retrograde!

Heads Up !  – As of Saturday at 10:16PM (EST) Mercury will be in its notorious Retrograde cycle.  Mercury, the planet of communication, transportation, manual dexterity, appears to move backward in the sky 3 times a year in different signs. This time, Mercury will be Retrograde in fiery, flirtatious, fun seeking Leo, the 5th sign of the Zodiac until August 7/8, 2012.  This sign’s typical charming, “look at me scenarios” can turn to high melodrama as a result of misunderstandings/ miscommunication, etc. Be careful with what you say or write. Cement plans, confirm directions, back up files, make sure all those little electronic gadgets are working, to cut down on any possible confusion or hurt feelings....more
Yes, I agree! Mercury is one of the hardest working planets in a chart. we just need to pick up ...more

Its Pisces Time!

Sun moves into the 12th and final sign of the Zodiac – imaginative, impressionable, intuitive Pisces. Since it is a Water sign ruled by Neptune, pay attention to your dreams (keep pen and paper next to your bed to take notes ) but stay grounded and connected. Over sensitivity to adverse energy or vibrations is no excuse to drift or try to escape. Be steady, be productive, be creative – which can be great for anyone associated with the arts. Ideas for new music, new choreography, new writing might bubble to the surface faster than usual. Pisces Sun on February 18, 2012, 10:18pm Pacific / February 19, 2012, 1:18am Eastern....more

Things to Be Thankful For: Final Mercury Retrograde of 2011!

Yesterday, the last Mercury Retrograde of the year occured in the jolly Fire of sign Sagittarius. The Sun already bounced into this 9th sign of the Zodiac on 11/22, so all its traits of learning, travel, education, adventure and risk taking are pushed to the forefront. Mercury is all about communication, transportation, movement, how we deal with variety and since this planet’s “backward” motion can often cause confusion, misunderstandings, snafus – my suggestion is check all lists, big plans and directions twice.  ...more
@astrosandy Oh! Man! I hope it doesn't snow ;)more

Astrology: Earthy Virgo Sun Arrives on August 23, 2011

The Virgo Sun spreads its influence on Tuesday 8/23 regardless of whether it’s your Astrological sign or not. We will all be a little more grounded, practical, efficient and responsible. This Mercury ruled Earth sign (of health, hard work and service) also lets us know that it really is all about the details, details, details.  Make plans and aim for better diet and fitness. If you want to work better or want better work, put together the little building blocks needed to create something substantial. We all deserve that and while the Sun heats up this 6thsign of the Zodiac, now is the perfect time to get it done (whatever “it” is). ...more
Yes, getting it done, accomplishment, keeping promises, but also taking care of yourself! ...more
