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
Denise  Ha. Ha! Love it!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

It’s Baaaaack! Mercury Goes Retrograde on 6/26/13

Mercury, the planet of communication, transportation, manual dexterity, stops motion and begins its travel backward in the sky (“goes retrograde”) beginning Wednesday June 26, 2013. This time, the retrograde motion happens in the nurturing, sensitive, water sign of Cancer; however, regardless of the sun sign, my cautions are always the same. With the sluggishness of retrograde, energy may be blunted and snafus can occur. Project initiation/creation would be best delayed if possible –- if not, be meticulous; be careful. (Jump all over the details.)...more

Let’s Talk! Gemini Moon All Weekend

A Gemini Moon, beginning today, May 10, 2013, will have us searching for people to hear us, listen to us, or read us this weekend. We got something to say! Lucky Jupiter lingers in the natural chatty, twittering energy of communication maven Gemini making us feel that all is possible and we can’t miss.  But, let’s not get too full of ourselves. A snippy Twitter or FB post can grow legs and follow you around for a few days. (You’ll have to spend time next week deleting & apologizing, deleting & apologizing, deleting & apologizing…)...more
Ha, that's funny.  We live in interesting times! Have a great weekend - tape and all.more

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.
