Monday & Tuesday (28 February-1 March 2011)

Greetings Friends!

Yes, you read that right, we're bidding goodbye to February tomorrow.  This year has been zipping right along (despite Saturn being retrograde in Libra).  This morning the waning Moon is transiting stalwart Capricorn and we have our vision fixed on managing our business concerns.  By tonight that all changes when Aquarius takes over the helm to lead us into March.  Please see the colors and crystal information for Capricorn in last Friday's blog so you can dress to be in sync with today's energies.

The Moon enters Aquarius at 9:14 PM tonight (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PST).  You will want to wear your best blue shirt or dress, as all shades of blue are good (as well as green and turquoise).  Amber, amethyst or aquamarine stones will harmonize nicely with the Aquarian Moon and you can try frankincense, patchouli, rosemary or mint incense during your meditation periods.

28 February 2011 is a five star day whose first aspect comes late in the day when the Moon conjoins Venus at 6:57 PM.  This is a nice aspect for combining business with pleasure, perhaps dinner and drinks with your co-workers?  Someone or something may have a surprise for you when the Moon sextiles Uranus at 8:03 PM, but don't begin anything new just yet since the Moon is void of course after that last aspect.  The Moon hops into Aquarius at 9:14 PM and our attention turns to group endeavors, friends and our dreams and wishes for the next two plus days.  Now is a good time to sort out what you'd like to work on during the next lunar cycle (the New Moon occurs 4 March 2011 at 12:56 PM).  I'd avoid starting new projects till then.

1 March 2011 is also a five star day that starts with an interesting sextile between Venus and Uranus at 6:50 AM.  There could be some wonderful news in the love department or a financial windfall--maybe both!  You never know when Uranus teams up with Venus, anything could happen!  The good news continues at 12:53 when the Moon forms a sextile to Jupiter.  And the possibilities for sudden good news in the love and finance sectors continues when Venus moves into Aquarius at 6:39 PM.  Expect to enjoy more good times with groups and friends till 27 March when Venus enters Pisces.

I've been intending to do a reading give away for some time and I think now is as good a time as any.  Hop over to my new blog click the link to subscribe and leave me a comment about said blog (with your name) and you will be entered for a chance to win a free 30-minute phone reading.  Two runners up will be able to email me one question to be answered via email.  Get your entry in by 12:00 AM PST 7 March 2011 to qualify; and the contest is open--now!  Good luck!

And till next time...

Rich Blessings!

Friday, Saturday & Sunday (25-27 February 2011)

Greetings Friends!

We finish up this week with the waning Moon in upbeat Sagittarius, but in recent weeks it's been the energy of Pluto playing out across our television and computer screens--in the Middle East and elsewhere.   The energy of Pluto will continue to be in the white hot spotlight  today as we have a number of powerful aspects to Pluto running right through the weekend--so who knows what we will see on the world stage during the next 48 hours!  In addition, I am willing to hazard a guess that many of us will have a working weekend due to the fact that the Moon will be moving into Capricorn tomorrow--which also happens to be where Pluto is posited.  It could be a very interesting weekend indeed!

Please see my blog for Wednesday and Thursday of this week for the colors, crystals etc, for Sagittarius.  The Moon moves into Capricorn 26 February at 11:32 AM (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PST) -- colors that harmonize with Capricorn include black, blue, royal blue and dark gray.  Carry amethyst, bloodstone or carnelian crystals in your pocket or wear them in your jewelry (especially if the stones come into contact with your skin).  If you like to use incense during your meditation periods try patchouli, mint, musk or jasmine.

Friday 25 February 2011 is a four star day that begins with an early morning conjunction between the Sun and Mercury at 0:48 AM--powerful, creative communication is at your command!  It may be of little use in PST but points east might want to be ready with pad and paper in the early morning hours to jot down some great notes.  Mercury is on a real power trip when it sextiles Pluto at 9:06 AM.  Those of us on the west coast get a second chance at writing and communications power--don't let this aspect pass you by!  The Moon sextile Saturn at 10:20 AM helps bring order to your world--and those communication notes you just wrote down!  A square aspect between planetary titans Jupiter and Pluto hits its apex at 12:29 PM.   We've seen the ramp up of this energy in Libya and in the destructive quake in New Zealand this past week.  Nut cases by the dozen may be the order of this aspect so be circumspect in your activities--avoid dangerous places and people...all day.  Keep in mind this is a really big aspect and its energy won't dissipate immediately.  The Sun forms a sextile to Pluto at  4:14 PM and it will lend extra power to Pluto--something that isn't necessarily a good thing.  Pluto is destroyer energy, and those situations ripe for transformation (think Libya) will likely fill the news this weekend.

Saturday 26 February 2011 is a three star day that starts with a potentially interesting sextile between the Moon and Neptune at 9:10 AM--late sleepers may reap the benefit of an insightful dream or two!  Rude awakenings are likely at 10:08 AM when the Moon squares eccentric Uranus--and then goes void of course.  We're very late in this lunar cycle, but if you must start a new project wait until after 11:32 AM when the Moon enters Capricorn.  Our focus shifts from being party hearty and expansion oriented, to being all business when the sign of Capricorn takes the stage.  Plan on putting the gears in motion so your business interests and ambitions are whipped into shape during the next couple of days.  You'll have a nice energy boost to take care of said business interests when the Moon sextiles Mars at 5:31 PM.  This is also great energy for the weekend warriors among you, so consider hitting the gym, going for a jog or maybe engage in one of your favorite sports with a few of your pals.

Sunday 27 February 2011 starts with a bang when the Moon conjoins Pluto at 0:54 AM.  This is another three star day--so I hope you're exercising, doing some meditation, etc, to handle whatever stress comes your way.  The Moon squares Jupiter at 1:30 AM and you may find yourself awake worrying about your finances in the wee hours of the morning.  The Moon and Sun form a sextile to one another at 3:40 AM providing a nice balance between our male and female--action oriented and intuitive sides.  Let your intuition guide you in taking action this morning.  Moon sextile Mercury at 7:47 AM may mean a lot of email, text or phone communications bright and early Sunday morning.  Unfortunately the rest of the day is building to a square between the Moon and Saturn; if your partner(s) are a bit on the cantankerous side today it's probably best to leave them alone.  Time is on your side, focus on your priority goals, leave others to their grumbling and let patience bring you the win by the end of this weekend.

Best wishes for a productive, peaceful weekend and till next time...

Rich Blessings!

Wednesday & Thursday (23-24 February 2011)

Greetings Friends!

Welcome to midweek during the last full week of February 2011.  We have a waning Scorpio Moon today and if things feel a bit intense it's because of said Moon position,  but it's also due to the fact that the Sun, Mars and Mercury are transiting through watery Pisces.  Lots of internal focus happening now--and that's good.  You may be feeling intuitive, moody or as I said earlier--intense.  Now is a great time for some water therapy; try a warm tub filled with mineral salts/epsom salts--or bubbles.  Listen to some relaxing music and see what visions of the future start to dance around in your head--all those planets bobbing around in Pisces will contribute some insights if you are quiet for a teensy bit!

Wednesday is a much better day--for energetic support, that is.  See Tuesday's blog for Scorpio colors, etc. Thursday we have an early change of sign to Sagittarius and our colors switch to black, dark blue, light blue, gold, and purple.  Turquoise, amethyst, lapis lazuli or zircon are great crystals to help you deal with the less than stellar energies on Thursday.  And you may want to make time to meditate early Thursday to balance out some contrary aspects; try copal, dragon's blood, frankincense or rose incense to harmonize with the Sagittarian vibe!

Wednesday 23 February 2011 is a five star day with just one aspect and that's Moon sextile Venus at 4:10 PM (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PST).  Love matters and money are humming along nicely as the energies build all day toward this upbeat aspect.  Fasten your seat belts though, because tomorrow's energies are a whole different matter all together!

Thursday 24 February 2011 is two star day that starts with a square between the Moon and Neptune at 2:23 AM.  It is important to see things as they are--not as your rose tinted glasses may desire to have you see them.  Also, you'll need to watch out for scams and other duplicities when this aspect is afoot.  Revolutionary Uranus may spark sudden changes for the better when it forms a trine with the Moon at 3:14 AM.  Finish old projects at this time as the Moon is void of course after that last aspect until 4:46 AM when the Moon enters the sign of Sagittarius.

Avoid stubborn or volatile behavior--or people exhibiting such behavior, when the Moon squares Mars at 6:58 AM.  Your efforts at communication will need to be thorough and precise to avoid confusion when the Moon squares Mercury at 2:45 PM--told you today was going to require extra effort!  The Last Quarter of this lunar phase occurs at 3:26 PM when the Moon squares the Sun; redouble your efforts to solve your current challenges regarding pet projects at this time.  You will find the extra effort worthwhile when the Moon trines Jupiter at 4:58 PM bringing good fortune your way after a long, challenging day.

If you'd like to discuss what the planets have planned for you in a more personal setting click here; I would be honored to assist you with a personal phone reading.  And till next time...

Rich Blessings!

Monday & Tuesday (21-22 February 2011)

Greetings Friends!

As those of us in America are 'celebrating' Presidents Day today, this might not actually be the start of the work week for some of us.  For those of us who will be hitting the bricks today, the Moon is transiting through Libra so let's check out some colors/scents to get us ready for the day!

Libra is a sign of beauty and refinement so think in terms of wearing pink, rose, or pastels and you can add a dash of black for elegance!  Agate, fire agate, carnelian and aquamarines are great crystals to carry with you to the office and mint, rose or vanilla incense will harmonize nicely during your meditations today.

The Moon will switch signs early in the day Tuesday from Libra to Scorpio, so get out your best black, maroon, gray or brown togs to look your sexy best.  Tuck malachite, amethyst, lodestone or bloodstone crystals in your pocket or purse and try myrrh, patchouli or vanilla incense during your meditations before you head into the office.

Monday 21 February 2011 is a four star day, but do take some time for self-care work since we will be dealing with the disciplining energy of Saturn today.  An early morning conjunction between the waning Libra Moon and Saturn occurs at 3:37 AM (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PST).  Early morning obligations may have us up and out of bed earlier than we like today.  A square between the Moon and Venus at 9:18 AM may be a harbinger of trouble between you and a loved one or worse, trouble with your finances, so steer clear of binge spending today.  Mercury, the planet of communication, moves into the deep mysterious waters of Pisces at 1:06 PM.  Our thoughts and communications are likely to run to deep topics of inspired art, music, or dance, as well as mysticism, Unity consciousness, or even secrets until Mercury moves into Aries, 10 March 2011.  Mercury's move into Piscean waters is enhanced by the Moon trining the ruler of Pisces (Neptune) at 11:07 PM tonight--pay close attention to your dreams at this time, you could receive valuable insights!

Tuesday the Moon trines Mars at 0:35 AM and then becomes void of course.  Early morning Mars energy may make for an uneasy nights sleep,  but that may shift for the better when the Moon moves into Scorpio at 1:29 AM.  Our focus switches to deep research, sex, business, death and metaphysical studies for the next couple of days.  Meanwhile the Moon trines Mercury at 3:16 AM giving rise to monkey mind early in the day--also not so conducive to a good night's sleep!  Better break out the melatonin before you hit the hay Monday night!  A trine between the Moon and the Sun at 7:33 AM boosts your confidence and charisma, so you should feel pretty fierce and ready to take on the world as you begin your day.  The Moon sextile Pluto at 1:06 PM gives you another energy boost and if you didn't feel you had the world on a string this morning, you probably do now!

Note that Mars joins the Sun and Mercury in Pisces at 5:06 PM--hmmm, looks like there's a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes.  If you have affairs you need to develop away from prying eyes--now would be the time...'eh hem.'

And, as always, till next time...

Rich Blessings,

Friday, Saturday & Sunday (18-20 February 2011)

Greetings Friends!

Time for the week end as well as our weekend round up!  Before we jump in I just wanted to reiterate that today--Friday the 18th is the date of the Full Moon not last Wednesday and I apologize for any inconvenience caused by my Wednesday/Thursday blog.  I will be taking my data from Lewellyn's Astrological Calendar as well as from Jim Maynard's astrologer's datebook, so we should be straight from here on out!

Friday our Full Moon in Leo is still using the colors, stones and incense types mentioned in Wednesday's blog, so please see my blog for 16-17 February for that information.

Friday 18 February 2011 is a two star day; you will want to do your self-care work (exercise, aromatherapy, Reiki, etc.) to keep your energy balanced and high as we move into the Full Moon phase of this lunar cycle.  Our day begins with the Full Moon at 0:36 AM (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PST) and it will be time to set aside our personal ambitions in favor of peaceful, amicable compromise.  Keep in mind the Moon is void of course until the Moon moves into Virgo at 1:39 AM and we will discuss colors, stones and incense varieties suitable and harmonious for our Virgo Moon tomorrow.  Meanwhile, a square between Venus and Saturn at 11:21 AM can mean some hard feelings in the love department and or some problems on the financial front.  Patience is what is required here, so reign in your spending for sure at this time and remember not to force your personal agenda on others today.  A powerful trine between the Moon and Pluto at 12:31 PM can bring breakthroughs in  personal mysteries, enhance our metaphysical knowing tremendously as well as bring healing in therapeutic settings at  this time.  If you have some malady that has gone undiscovered, this is the type of aspect to have your medical work-up done under ;).

Lastly, but not least, the Sun enters the sign of Pisces at 4:25 PM moving our collective psyches to focus on the really deep, meditative/spiritual side of life for the next 30 days--yay!  This will also be a period of time to enjoy art, music, film and dance--no wonder this is one of my favorite times of the wheel of the year!

Saturday 19 February 2011 is a three star Moon in Virgo day.  Colors that harmonize with Virgo include  black, pale blue, navy and brown.  Try carrying moss agate, agate, amethyst or aventurine crystals with you today and it's even better if they're in jewelry that lies against your skin!  Incense scents to use during meditation:  try lavender, mint, patchouli or sandalwood to get in the groove these next couple of days.  Our first aspect of the day occurs at 5:27 AM as the Moon trines Venus; all will be right with the world, romantically speaking that is, and money woes should be under control at this time too.  Watch out for sudden challenges and surprises at 11:18 PM when the Moon opposes Uranus; there could be sudden health issues such as colds or flu for you, a child or another loved one--it is that time of year!  So be prepared to make changes in your plans for the evening as things unfold.  In addition, the Moon is void of course with that last aspect, so new projects will need to begin tomorrow after the Moon changes signs.

Sunday 20 February 2012 is also a three star day and we have a change in sign from Virgo to Libra at 1:01 AM.  Our focus moves from health and service to care of our personal and intimate relationships while the Moon transits through Libra.  Keep a careful eye on spending when the Moon opposes overly optimistic Jupiter at 10:23 AM.   Think in terms of personal safety and void situations/people who have the ability to be dangerous when the Moon squares Pluto at 12:01 PM.  At its best the conjunction between Mercury and Mars at 2:44 PM brings great passion to your communications; at worst we could find ourselves embroiled in verbal battles with others, so be temperate in your talks with others today.  Mercury conjoining Neptune at 5:08 PM also brings the possibility of mixed blessings as people paint uplifting pictures of possibilities that aren't necessarily grounded in reality.  The best use of this aspect probably comes via working on artistic or spiritual projects at this time.  Someone may be a little too enthusiastic in sharing their spiritual/religious beliefs when Mars conjoins Neptune at 8:19 PM.  One great way to tweak this energy is to get out on the dance floor and dance away all that extra enthusiasm Mars gives.

Get ready for the work week to begin under a waning Libra Moon tomorrow.  Our relationships will still be in the spotlight as we begin to wrap up February 2011 with a flourish.  Till next time...

Rich Blessings!

Greetings Friends!

I want to tip my hat to reader Jen who asked me about the Full Moon occurring on the 18th and NOT today as previously stated in my blog.  Jen is correct and it occurs at 0:36 AM Friday the 18th of February 2011.  You may wonder how errors like this occur and it falls under the aegis of the precession of the equinoxes.  Some of you may recall there was a lot of chatter about there being a 13th astrological sign by an astronomer last month.  Well, there isn't a need for a 13 sign, astrologers take care to correct their calculations to account for the precession of Earth's axis of rotation with respect to inertial space (I know this sounds complicated, but hang in there).  When these calculations are made you can get discrepancies from one astrological source to another--but not this big.  They should only be a degree or so off.  Clearly the Moon cannot enter the sign of Leo today and simultaneously be at the end of the sign within a couple of hours--it usually takes the Moon about 2.5 days to traverse a sign.  So, clearly the information is wrong.

For the astrologers among you wondering what source I used, please see the Celestial Forecaster 2011 by Annie Bones.  It is clear upon checking other resources (Llewellyn's astrological Calendar and Jim Maynards pocket calendar for 2010--yes 2010 it runs through February 2011), Ms. Bones' information for the Full Moon is wrong.  I am very pleased to have some commentary from readers and thank Jen for opening up some spirited debate!  That being said, I also want to insure my readers will have the information they need, so Ms. Bones' book will no longer be the reference tool I work with this year.

If you have questions about all of this please post your questions!  I will answer each of them in turn and also will be posting a new blog for Friday though Sunday tonight that will address this issue again.  Thank you for reading and till next time...

Rich Blessings!

Wednesday & Thursday (16-17 February 2011)

Greetings Friends!

Welcome to Wednesday and you need to know that we're sporting a Full Moon today!  I do hope you're enjoying a fantastic week, but now let's see what the Celestial weather has in store for us.  The Full Moon hits at nearly the very end of the sign--30 degrees of Leo--so all you cusp Leo/Virgo people (or any of you with late Leo or early Virgo planets) need to know you're in the hot seat this time around.  Our colors for the Leo Moon include green, gold, orange or red.  Try wearing tiger's eye, rose quartz or ruby jewelry.  Check out copal, frankincense, myrrh or sandalwood incense for your meditation periods.  And you know you will want to be doing meditation/self-care work during a Full Moon period, right?  Alright, now on to the forecasts!

Wednesday 16 February 2011 is a three star day.  Remember that Full Moons are oppositions between the Sun and Moon, a time for peaceful reflection and compromise--not a time to devolve into arguments and me-first behaviors.  The Moon enters Leo at 1:14 AM and the Full Moon arrives at 3:31 AM (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PST).  This is definitely a day to keep your focus on thoughts of harmony and peace for self and the planet.  The only other aspect for the day is a terrific trine between the Moon and Jupiter at 9:29 AM--really great for amplifying those peace vibes you're sending out today, so keep it up!

Thursday 17 February 2011 is a four star day and it's important to remember the energy is still somewhat high from yesterday's Full Moon.  You will still want to keep your focus on finding opportunities for compromise whenever disputes develop today--and they might, so keep that in mind!  The Sun conjoins Neptune 1:55 AM bringing the possibility for prophetic dreams, so keep pen and paper by your bedside tonight!  The Moon sextile Saturn at 4:35 AM gets us up early and ready to begin our day with great discipline and order.  The Moon opposes Pluto at 7:06 AM and be prepared for some static on the line from your boss or other authority figure early in the day.  Those who can keep a peaceful frame of mind win, remember?  The Moon is void of course with that last aspect, so hold off on new projects today (this is a really long void of course period).  Finish up old projects under the aegis of the void of course moon the rest of the day.

Creatives, artists, dancers, film makers and musicians should be on alert as Mercury is developing a trine to the planet of inspiration--Neptune now till 20 February.  Who knows what dreams may come, so be ready to take notes and capture your flights of fancy.  Toward the end of that conjunction the Sun will be lending its power to Mercury now through 25 February.  Writers, students and presenters take note and be ready to capture your topics of interest with great charisma and creativity.

We're nearly finished with the second month of the year and maybe its time for your annual psychic reading--click here to find out how to schedule a tarot or astrological reading with me!  Till next time...

Rich Blessings!

Monday & Tuesday (14-15 February 2011)

Happy Valentines Day!

I trust that all of you took advantage of the good vibes this past weekend for your Valentines celebrations since the energy is rocky (unfortunately) both today and tomorrow.  It's nothing we can't handle with our energetic tools, however.  Speaking of energetic tools, I want to recommend a cool site for meditation tools here at Centerpointe.  They offer a lot of information on the subject of meditation and if you've never found a way to get yourself to meditate effectively, their offerings might  be just the thing you've been looking for!

Meanwhile the Moon is transiting through home loving Cancer, so it's time to get out your blue shirt, dress, candles, etc.  Wear your favorite amber, carnelian or moonstone jewelry and don't forget your jasmine, rose or sandalwood incense to complete your Centerpointe meditations!  Now we're all ready to begin our work week!

Monday 14 February 2011 is a two star day beginning with a trine between Mercury and Saturn at 12:48 AM (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PST).  This is a great aspect for those of you needing to burn the midnight oil for a school project or presentation.  A square between the Moon and Jupiter at 5:51 AM puts the kibosh on spending for the time being--and on Valentines day!  Find inexpensive ways to show you care that won't put you in the financial dog house later this week.  The Universe is really not on the side of lovers today what with a square between the Moon and Venus at 7:33 PM, yet another indicator of the need to keep your spending under control as well as an indicator of possible emotional challenges in the love department.

Make sure these challenging aspects don't cause a verbal tiff between you and a love one since Mercury is developing a conjunction with volatile Mars now till 20 February.  Keep this Valentines Day under the banner of Unconditional Love, release the notion that its about the things someone buys for you and you'll find this can be a day of positive, quiet, meaningful feelings between you and your beloved.

Tuesday 15 February 2011 is also a two star day that begins with a rough square aspect between the Moon and Saturn at 3:10 AM.  Hard feelings from yesterday's rough astrological waters may cause your beloved to behave badly early in the day.  There may be no way to console them, so be prepared to grin and bear it for now.  The rest of the day is spent working on a trine between the Moon and Uranus at 11:06 PM when your honey bunny may suddenly have a change of heart (took long enough, right?).  Let them have their pout fest, keep yourself busy with personal concerns and know that turning in early will allow you to wake to brighter possibilities on Wednesday.  That last aspect leaves the Moon void of course, even more reason to enjoy a warm bath and an early bedtime.  Wednesday offers the start of a fun Leo Moon, so be patient and bide your time.

Have you been keeping up with my newest blog lagirl13 where I share interesting ideas on fashion, health, beauty and business?  I certainly hope so, and when you visit, don't forget to subscribe!  Till next time...

Rich Blessings!

Friday, Saturday & Sunday Astrological Forecast (11-13 February 2011)

Greetings Friends!

We have a Valentines weekend ready to roll out for us today and the Moon is wrapping up its transit in Taurus as well .  Friday and Saturday offer us pretty good energetic support while Sunday has a mix of energies--but you know how to take care of that, right?  Some exercise to increase endorphin production, get out your lavender and clary sage essential oils or use your Brain Sync recordings to lower stress levels and it's all good.

Friday the Moon changes signs from Taurus to Gemini, so expect lots of communications this Valentines holiday.   Focus on the colors yellow and orange for the next couple of days and try moss agate, agate and aquamarine tucked into a pocket or your purse.   You can also try dragon's blood or mint incense, as they will work well for your meditations.  Friday is a four star day, Saturday a five star day and Sunday a three star day, so plan your Valentines celebrations with this in mind and you should do well.  The energy for the 14th of February is pretty disruptive, so you probably are better off taking care of your love life this weekend.

Friday 11 February 2011 starts with a bit of confusion when the Moon squares Neptune at 10:49 AM (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PST).  You'll feel a bit more sure of yourself and your opinions when the Moon forms a sextile to Uranus at 11:26 AM; the only problem is you might be feeling a bit off the wall at the time.  The Moon becomes void of course after that last aspect too, so finish up mundane tasks and wait for the Moon to enter Gemini at 2:20 PM before launching new endeavors.  You'll be feeling positively lucky when the Moon sextiles Jupiter at 10:04 PM, just don't give away the farm because you're feeling so good!

Saturday 12 February 2011 spends the greater part of the day building toward a trine between the Moon and Mercury at 6:08 PM.  Your written and spoken communications should be right on the money at this time.  If you need to set some plans in motion, try working with the trine between the Moon and Saturn at 10:09 PM to make your plans crystal clear.  Note that you're probably better off acting with restraint now till 20 February due to an approaching conjunction between Mars and Neptune.  Something you believe you're seeing may not be the real deal, so just take a wait and see approach before leaping into new endeavors at this time.

Sunday 13 February 2011 gives us great get up and go when the Moon trines Mars at 8:31 AM.  The nice balance between the Moon and Sun at 12:27 PM gives us the know how of what to do and how to do it--which is always nice.  And an inspirational trine between the Moon and Neptune at 6:41 PM allows us to enjoy art, music or spiritual pursuits to great effect.  Our collective trains may leave the track at 7:19 PM, however, when the Moon squares radical change Meister Uranus; be prepared for unpleasant surprises at this time.   The Moon is void of course after that last aspect till 9:48 PM when the Moon enters its home territory of Cancer.  We will take a look at colors, stones, etc. for Cancer tomorrow (hint: think blue!) as the old astrological saying is whatever sign starts the day, rules the day.

It may be necessary to rethink your expenses or love life now till 18 February since the planet of love and money, Venus, is developing a square to taskmaster Saturn.  Use caution in your expenditures and promises to others and hopefully you'll slide through this period unscathed.

Have a super weekend and till next time...

Rich Blessings!

Wednesday & Thursday (9-10 February 2011)

Greetings Friends!

Remember the conjunction I mentioned for Venus and Pluto--today's the day!  So don't forget to do some visualizing for your key dreams and wishes before heading out the door today.  As for the energy of these two days, we receive more energetic support Wednesday, you're definitely going to need to do some centering work on Thursday before you head out to do your thing--whatever your thing happens to be (school, work, etc.).  We also have a change of signs on Wednesday so think blue, cream or green colors when the Moon switches allegiance to Taurus.  Carry azurite, carnelian or moss agate to harmonize with Tauruean energies and burn musk, patchouli or vanilla incense for your meditations.  Now that you're nicely harmonized for the next couple of days, let's take a look at the energies for Wednesday and Thursday.

Wednesday 9 February 2011 sees the Moon move into Taurus at 3:22 AM (Note:  all times in this blog are PST).  This is a four star day with our focus moving toward simplifying and organizing our lives (especially as it relates to money), to enjoying the simple things in nature and the pursuit of sensual pleasures.  Sounds pretty good, doesn't it?  With that in mind, the Moon trines Venus at 4:32 PM and you might want to stop after work for a massage or to purchase some self care items to pamper and beautify you and your world tonight.  The Moon trines Pluto at 4:39 PM lending itself to deep self discovery work such as therapy, metaphysical studies or meditation.  The much ballyhooed conjunction between Venus and Pluto occurs at 5:51 PM and a power meeting for your business interests could go quite well--just remember to start it in time to conclude about the time of this aspect.  We have a nasty square between the Moon and Mercury at 11:40.  Go to bed early and keep harsh thoughts and words to yourself!

Thursday 10 February 2011 is practically a zero star day, so meditate, do some yoga or Reiki, bring your crystals along and note that this is a First Quarter Moon day.  What does that mean?  It means you are likely to discover a glitch in the plans you've made for this lunar cycle, so get out your thinking cap and figure out ways to resolve said glitches.  We spend all day building to a square between the Moon and Mars at 8:13 PM.  This is a mean, potentially violet aspect, stay out of arguments and away from dangerous places.   Combine that with the square between the Moon and Sun aka First Quarter Moon and it's really a night to be quietly at home working on your inner journey.  Challenges help us refine our vision of self and when handled with the right spirit, make us stronger human beings.

Note that the Sun is working toward a conjunction with Neptune now till 17 February which can give us flights of fancy, inspiration and a sense of at-oness with All That Is.  We may not be especially well grounded during this period, so table important decisions and purchases until a couple of days after this aspect expires.  Mercury is also developing a trine with Saturn now till 14 February, which could bring some crystallization to plans, written communications/projections.  Delays may also occur with activities involving written/communications projects, so schedule your deadlines a bit after this aspect to avoid challenges (if you can).

We're in the home stretch, the weekend is in sight.  Join me Friday for some more great information for your week end and weekend plans.  Till next time...

Rich Blessings!

Monday & Tuesday (7 & 8 February 2011)

Greetings Friends!

Welcome to a new work week with the Moon transiting Aries.  In my last blog I discussed the coming conjunction between Venus and Pluto--potentially a very powerful conjunction!  I was joking with another astrologer that this is the Angelina Jolie aspect, one that describes a sly, untrustworthy woman, and yes it could be that!  It could also be you as a powerful, confident woman taking the initiative and making some of your most powerful dreams come true this week, so keep that in mind!  In this blog and my LAGirl13 blog (click here to check out my other blog) I hope to inspire women to create the most magical and inspired lives possible.  If there are other insights you'd like to see in this blog, please click the contact information tab above and send me an email.

The Moon remains in Aries through Tuesday; see last weekend's blog below for information regarding the crystals, colors and scents that harmonize with Aries/Mars energy.  Both Monday and Tuesday are four star days with pretty good energy, but that doesn't mean that some yoga, pilates, aromatherapy or Reiki won't assist you in keeping centered as you move through your day.  Now, on to our forecast!

Monday 7 February 2011 begins with a sextile between the Moon and Mercury at 1:51 AM (Note:  all times in this blog are PST).  Early birds catch the worm here with an opportunity to take care of key communications as the day begins.  Power players may be creating chaos when the Moon squares Pluto at 4:04 AM, so do your meditations, Reiki, etc. to keep calm and centered before heading off to work.  Fortunately this aspect comes and goes early in the day and the rest of the day is aspect quiet.

Tuesday 8 February 2011 begins with a surly opposition between the Moon and Saturn at 12:26 AM.  Partners may be pouting and compromise is best for dealing with their contentious moods.   An early morning visit to the gym might be best when the Moon sextiles Mars at 4:15 AM, just don't devolve into arguments with others at this time.  Our male and female energies balance nicely as the Moon sextiles the Sun at 6:09 AM; allow your intuition to guide your actions this morning.  Some meditation as you drift off to sleep allows you to take advantage of a nice sextile between the Moon and Neptune at 11:30 PM.  the Moon is void of course after that aspect, so leave new projects for tomorrow.

Are you ready to gain some personal insights on the year ahead, or do you just have some questions about how this whole astrology things works for you?  Click here to schedule your personal phone reading!  Till next time...

Friday, Saturday & Sunday Astrological Forecast (4-6 February 2011)

Greetings Friends,

And Happy Chinese New Year!  This year has been moving along at a pretty good clip and the next few days are no exception--Friday and Saturday are truly great five star days, but Sunday we have a couple of challenges (three stars!), so remember to do your self-care work!  But before I get into the details of the next several days I want to share some good news with you.  This blog was named one of the top 50 fortune teller sites and you can check the article out here This article offers a smorgasbord of sites, everything from energy healing and astrology to magick, so be sure and check it out.

Back at the ranch,  Friday the Moon moves into the spiritual waters of Pisces.  Pisces energy is a bit laid back and mystical--and a nice change of pace as we prepare for the weekend.  Keep in mind that water signs (Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio) benefit most from the Pisces Moon position.  Piscean colors include all shades of blue, hot pink, turquoise and silver.  Crystals that harmonize with the energy of the Fish are lapis lazuli, boji stone, laboradorite and that crystal work horse, the amethyst.  If you're looking for a great incense to burn during your Pisces meditations try benzoin, lavender, patchouli or sandalwood.

Sunday we'll experience an energetic shift when the Moon moves into Aries.  Aries is all about action, action, action!  Your colors for the Aries Moon are red, pink, scarlet and white.  Arian crystals include amethyst, carnelian, bloodstone and diamonds.  Looking for a good incense?  Try copal, frankincense, dragon's blood or musk.  Now you know why your favorite metaphysical store has all those different types of incense ;)

Friday 4 February 2011 the Moon enters Pisces at 2:24 AM (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PST).  Our focus moves to philanthropy, music, movies, dreams, and spiritual concerns at this time.  A Pisces Moon is a great time for prayer work, visualization, meditation and other spiritual activities, so get busy!  The Moon sextile Venus at 2:51 AM brings a good energetic flow to romantic and financial concerns.  Those of us on the west coast will awaken with a lot of energy as the Sun conjoins Mars at 8:40 AM.  One cautionary note:  don't allow yourself to bully others as you may be feeling your oats at this time.  The Moon sextile Pluto at 3:23 PM adds additional power to our emotions and confidence as the work day winds down.  This is a great aspect for transforming work or business concerns into something more to our liking.  The power is continuing to build now till 9 February as Venus develops a conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn.  If you're looking for a business loan, or the assistance of a powerful mentor now is the time to make your move!

Saturday 5 February 2011 has us thinking BIG when Mercury sextiles Jupiter at 7:29 AM.  Get up early and write that business/action plan to make your 2011 truly rock!  You can begin to put the wheels under the action plan when the Sun trines Saturn at 10:40 PM.  Saturn will help you see just how to organize and structure your plans so you achieve lasting success.

Sunday 6 February 2011 you will want to take action on the plans formulated yesterday when Mars trines Saturn at 9:15 AM.  Rebel rouser Uranus may bring surprises and insights when it's conjoined by the Moon at 11:13 AM.  The Moon is void of course after that last aspect so pause on starting new projects till after the Moon changes signs later today.  You may have been tempted to overspend in recent days and will need to manage the consequences of that when Venus squares Jupiter at 11:39 AM.  You finally have a green light for moving on new projects when the Moon enters Aries at 2:45 PM.  Our personal projects and interests are in the spotlight for the next couple of days, so refine your vision, what is it you want to accomplish during this lunar cycle?  Your plans are likely to be really grand as the Moon conjoins Jupiter at 8:50 PM and you may be blessed with some good fortune to boot!  Just be sure you're not still playing fast and loose with your money when the Moon squares Venus at 9:38 PM.  This holds true for your love relationships as well.

Rich Blessings!

Wednesday & Thursday (2-3 February 2011)

Greetings Friends!

We are standing on the brink of a New Moon and a new Chinese New Year (year of the Metal Rabbit).  Can you feel the energies starting to build?  It's time to begin thinking about what goals you'd like to launch or accomplish during the next two weeks!  Both Wednesday and Thursday have nice energy, with a slight edge going to Thursday.  I'm calling Wednesday a four star day and Thursday a five star day.  Just remember to do your self-care work and it should all work out just fine.

Wednesday 2 February 2011 starts with a square between Venus and Uranus at 4:47 AM (Note:  all times in this blog are PST).  Don't be surprised if you're awakened by some sudden jolt in the early morning hours!  Mercury forms a sextile to Uranus at 8:15 AM bringing lightning bolts of insight to humanity.  Quick, grab a pen and paper, you're not going to want to let these sparks of genius pass you by!  The New Moon arrives at 6:30 PM when the Moon conjoins the Sun in Aquarius (13 degrees).  Aquarians, Leos, Taurus' and Scorpios are most heavily impacted by this New Moon, so take note.

 Last, but not least, Mercury is developing a sextile with Jupiter now till 5 February, so dream big!  Wondering what colors or stones harmonize with the Celestial weather today?  Please see the blog entry for Tuesday 1 February 2011 for Aquarian colors, incense and crystals information.

Thursday 3 February 2011 ushers in a New Chinese New Year--the Metal Rabbit.  Children born under this sign are said to quiet, determined and quite motivated.  Lucky ducks, for these qualities are likely to lead to success in these days and times.  Our aspects begin with a trine between the Moon and Saturn at 12:56 AM; those folks who need to burn the midnight oil working on a project will have great discipline for seeing it done!  Venus enters Capricorn at 9:58 PM and our love nature becomes more focused on career matters than romance now till 26 March 2011 (just about the time Mercury goes retrograde, by the way).  There is a time for all things and now is a time to invest in yourself, your career success and self-realization.  The Moon conjoins Neptune and then goes void of course at 10:11 PM.  Call it an early night, meditate, enjoy a warm bath or relax with someone you love...and prepare for the Moon in Pisces tomorrow.

Till next time...

Rich Blessings!
