Friday, Saturday & Sunday (29 April-1 May 2011)

Greetings Friends!

We are in the Dark of the Moon today heading into an Aries Moon weekend with a change of sign late  Sunday evening to earthy Taurus.  Your needs, interests and goals will be in focus for much of the weekend, so it's time now to take a good luck at what you've got going on so far this year.  What goals did you set for this year?  Have you found yourself stymied or a bit confused over how to make your dreams come true?  Are you clear that the goals you've chosen for yourself are the right ones?  If you can use some additional insight, click on the Contact Information tab above and scroll down till you hit the link for scheduling a private reading with me.  I would be honored to help you gain some additional clarity into your personal life situations at this time.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, some think of it as the baby of the zodiac--and babies are all about their own needs!  So put yourself first this weekend and attend to whatever needs you've had to set aside of late; see to them first and then you can help others out.  Being a fire sign,  Moon in Aries offers all fire sign natives a bit of extra energy, but you'll want to take care Saturday since the energy only amounts to about three stars.  Today and Sunday, however, are five star days, so get out there wearing your best red, pink or white outfits.  Sport some amethyst, bloodstone or carnelian crystal jewelry and wind down your day with some copal, dragon's blood, myrrh or musk incense during your meditations.  The New Moon late Monday evening will be beckoning you with new opportunities and you will want your energy high and ready to roll!

Friday 29 April 2011 kicks things off with the Moon moving into Aries at 10:33 AM (Note:  all times in this blog are PDT).  Though there is only one exact aspect toward the end of the afternoon, the conjunction between the Moon and sudden change artist Uranus at 3:59 PM means you have a window of opportunity to mix things up and make a break from the way you ordinarily do things.  If there's a major change you've been wanting to make, now might be the time to take a first step.  The New Moon doesn't  make it in till Monday and Mercury is still spinning in its retrograde shadow energy, so I wouldn't quit a job or announce intentions to do so just yet.  Still, you might be able to make a phone call or line up a meeting with someone who plays an important part in creating a 'New Life' or a 'New You'.  How can you get moving today with your personal dreams and goals?

Saturday 30 April 2011 prepares to bid goodbye to April with a rather unhelpful square between the Moon and Pluto at 1:31 AM.  If you're a regular reader of this blog then you know that this type of energy emboldens difficult, angry and violent people, so avoid being in dangerous places in the early morning hours of the day.  It will be all kisses, lollipops and rainbows when the Moon and Venus snuggle together at 9:54 AM; you might want to hit the hair salon and get a quick 'do' or manicure ladies--which is a nice way to do the self care thing!  An opposition between the Moon and Saturn at 10:41 AM advises you not to take the self care thing too far.  Prudence in your spending is still advised or you may find yourself experiencing difficulties with a partner later today.  Communication is King when the Moon conjoins Mercury at 5:13 PM; ask yourself where do I need to communicate clearly or with power as the day prepares to give way to the night.  Venus in opposition to Saturn at 5:16 PM reiterates the need to be cautious in your spending--and be aware that the lovey, dovey vibe from this morning has definitely expired.  Boisterous good times are likely when Mars conjoins Jupiter at 9:26 PM--let the good times roll!

Sunday 1 May 2011--happy May Day everyone!  The upbeat energy of last night wakes you up this morning with a smile when the Moon conjoins the master of good luck Jupiter at 7:51 AM.  A morning jog or trip to the gym keeps your energy running high at 8:20 AM--and that is our last exact aspect for today.  Clean up, throw out or do some meditating on which old situations need to be moved out of your life experience in preparation for tomorrow evening's New Moon and till next time...

Rich Blessings!

Wednesday & Thursday (27-28 April 2011)

Greetings Friends!

We are sailing along with the Moon transiting through the sign of Pisces today.  A Pisces Moon is great for water therapy (a day at the beach, swimming, bubble baths, etc.), enjoying art museums, music, dance and your favorite spiritual practices.  These two days are a little wonky--we'll get into why in a minute, but let's just say if you have important business to conduct you'll want to have it done by lunch time today at the latest!

Since Pisces energy is water energy all water sign natives will feel an energetic boost today and tomorrow. Wear your best blues and greens today along with aquamarine, jade, amethyst and bloodstone jewelry.  If you take the time to meditate don't forget to have a little lavender, jasmine or sandalwood incense available to maximize your self-care ritual.

Wednesday 27 April 2011 gets three stars in part because the Moon is void of course for much of the day, but we begin with Venus square Pluto at 0:20 AM which suggests some heavy handed dealings from a controlling person around you.  Beware of manipulative or violent people at this time, find somewhere else to be if you know abusive types because this is really a mean aspect.  Also note we're talking PDT here.  Follow your instincts when the Moon forms a sextile to the Sun at 12:25 PM--especially where creative pursuits or children are concerned.  The Moon makes a sextile to Pluto at 12:52 PM--which is an ideal time for powerful meditation (provided you're not working, that is).  Therapy sessions might be powerfully transformative at this time as well!  Note that the Moon becomes void of course at this time and once again you will want to focus on cleanup, old projects, etc., until--Friday morning.  Yes, you heard me correctly--this is going to be the 'Mother of all Void of Course Periods', lol.  

Thursday 28 April 2011:  The Universe is really laughing at us because Thursday has no exact aspects whatsoever!  And, as I mentioned earlier, the Moon is void of course all day to boot. This isn't a day to plan anything major--which is what I meant by these two days being a bit wonky.  Take care to eat well, rest, get some exercise and make it the kind of day you want to have--at least you won't have to dodge a zillion 'mean darts' from the Universe today!

Tomorrow morning the Moon zooms into Aries and we will have a totally different ball game to contend with--just enjoy the laid back Pisces Moon and till next time...

Rich Blessings!

Monday & Tuesday (25-26 April 2011)

Greetings Friends!

The Mercury retrograde has folks still in a twitter.  I just want to reiterate that the fact that Mercury is no longer back pedaling doesn't mean things are back to normal.  If you walk backwards in a room and then begin walking forward you do not immediately jump back to the place where you began moving backward.  Mercury will not return to the point it began its retrograde until 11 May--this is sometimes called the Mercury retrograde shadow, so avoid putting your John Hancock on anything between now and then--if at all possible (and I know, sometimes it just isn't).  This is especially true since we're in the Last Quarter Moon phase.  The next New Moon occurs 2 May (and I don't know what the Royal couple was thinking, getting married in the Dark of the Moon--really?!), so hold your hot new plans till then--this is going to be a really great New Moon!

Okay, now that I have those items off my chest, I hope you managed to make it through last weekend without too many problems.  Monday is a five star day and Tuesday just one star for reasons you will read about shortly.  However, we have the lovely treat of a Pisces Moon up to bat late Tuesday evening and that's always something to look forward to--at least in my book.  Meanwhile the Aquarius Moon provides some pretty nice vibes, so do what you can to clean up, organize and get things ship shape as we begin a new work week.

Monday 25 April 2011 allows us to get right down to business when a sextile between the Moon and Saturn occurs at 10:25 AM; take advantage of this aspect to plan out your week and you'll be ahead of the game!  Also keep in mind all times in this blog are PDT.  You'll have some great support for your communications work at 12:27 PM when the Moon forms a sextile to Mercury; get those reports  polished off, emails sent and presentations done while you can do so with ease.  A late night sextile (11:13 PM) between the Moon and Mars is very unhelpful for those of us on the west coast of the USA, but it ought to be great for those in the UK or Europe who want to rise and shine early and get the drop on Tuesday.  Stay tuned...

Tuesday 26 April 2011 is an off kilter day and I say that because the aspects are great, but the Moon becomes void of course right after it forms a lucky sextile to Jupiter at 4:28 AM--hence the reason Europeans may want to do an early rise and shine to take care of any important business before the void of course Moon begins.  And it stays void of course until 9:57 PM when the Moon finally saunters into Piscean waters.  The Universe even gives us a great aspect to fall asleep to, a beautiful conjunction between the Moon and Neptune (happily transiting its home sign of Pisces) occurs at 11:05 PM.  So one of the best ways to utilize the energy on Tuesday is just make it a day to clean up, throw out, finish old projects, etc., and get ready for the lull in the action that Moon in Pisces usually provides.  By Friday we'll be back on the bullet train of life--and isn't it nice the Universe provides us these spaces of time to rest and regroup at the beginning of a work week?

Enjoy and till next time...

Rich Blessings!

Friday, Saturday & Sunday (22-24 April 2011)

Greetings Friends!

And in something of a turn about, we finish up this week with the Moon in ambitious Capricorn (an energetic boon for those of you born in earth signs).  Don't be surprised if you find yourself needing to get a bit of work done over this weekend (despite the Easter holiday being on tap!).  This isn't going to be an easy going weekend--Friday is a three star day, Saturday a zero star day and Sunday is a three star day too; do what you can in the self-care department to enable you to manage challenges with poise and grace (meditate, exercise, eat your fruit/veggies and get plenty of rest)!

A Capricorn Moon wants to present in a serious, conservative manner, so wear your best black, dark blue, gray or brown designer suit--dress to impress!  To keep that calm demeanor of yours intact meditate with mint, musk or patchouli incense before your important meetings and wear a piece of amethyst, lapis lazuli or malachite jewelry to help you make it through the day...or night, as the case may be.

The Moon switches into freedom loving Aquarius Sunday morning--bringing a bit more energy to air sign natives.  Sport your bright, fluorescent outfits as well as all shades of blue--especially electric blue, as you head out for Easter frivolity.  Aquarius is a group loving sign, but try a little solo meditation with frankincense, mastic, rosemary or lavender incense; it will help keep you cool, calm and collected!  Stick a moonstone, aquamarine or set of boji stones in your pocket and you're all set to go!

Friday 22 April 2011 begins with the Moon entering Capricorn at 3:24 AM--oh, and happy Earth Day (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PDT)!  This placement brings your focus to matters of career and self-realization.  What is your passion and how can you create a life's work from it--even design a life around it?  This is your focus for the next two days, so get cracking!  A sextile between the Moon and Neptune may bring you sweet dreams worth recording at 4:14 AM; make sure you have a pen and paper handy to record them when you awaken.  If you (or your partner) wake up on the wrong side of the bed, blame it on a square between the Moon and Venus at 6:24 AM.  Someone's erratic behavior is likely to be working your nerves when the Moon squares Uranus at 7:32 AM--now might be a really good time for a meditation break!  Our monthly power conjunction between the Moon and Pluto occurs at 4:50 PM; what can you do today to give your dreams and aspirations a boost?  One of Cupid's arrows may find you this evening when Venus conjoins Uranus at 7:29 PM--are you ready to be love struck?

Saturday 23 April 2011 is a real 'get out your energetic tool kit and use everything you've got', kind of a day that begins with a square between the Moon and Saturn at 1:56 AM.  You could be dealing with everything from emotional coldness from a loved one to needing to burn the midnight oil on a project.  A square between the Moon and Mercury at 2:47 AM is the Universe's way of saying no late night chats please, you probably can't solve any problems just now anyway.  The one little bit of bright news for the day is Mercury making a direct station and beginning forward motion again at 3:04 AM, but it will be 11 May before it makes up all the ground it lost during the retrograde.  Translation:  you still don't want to begin major new projects, sign agreements, move, etc., unless you absolutely must.  If people insist on being surly, aggressive and difficult you should just leave them be as the Moon squares Mars at 9:42 AM.  You might want to indulge yourself to make up for today's Celestial bad weather, but don't as the Moon squares Jupiter at 5:13 PM suggesting it's not such a good idea.  The Moon in Capricorn usually means acting conservatively anyway...sorry.  In any case, the Moon is void of course after that aspect and you know that means not launching anything new until the Moon changes signs... tomorrow.

Sunday 24 April 2011 is a Last Quarter Moon day, meaning you may have discovered some glitch in your plans for this lunar cycle.  More about that later as we begin with the Moon shifting into Aquarius at 10:59 AM.  Group associations, your deepest desires and friends are now up for consideration as we move through the next two plus days.  Be ready to jot down ingenious ideas at 3:39 PM when the Moon sextiles shock jock Uranus.  The Last Quarter Moon for this lunar cycle occurs at 7:47 PM and it may be time to retool some of your plans for important projects and goals if they are stubbornly resisting achievement.  You and your sweetie deserve to relax and enjoy some quiet time together before the start of the work week--so take advantage of the sextile between the Moon and Venus at 8:13 PM to snuggle and recover from this weekend's events.

And that is the weekly round-up, I hope you find it useful and till next time...

Rich Blessings!

Wednesday & Thursday (20-21 April 2011)

Greetings Friends!

We are now past the Full Moon; tell me, what were your experiences?  I and a number of people around me had some major issues with appliances and computers.  Are there some personal practices you need to strengthen and refine?  The Full Moon often shines a spotlight on areas of our lives that need to change.  In addition to some interesting computer glitches I also (re)learned some interesting information about health and wellness.  Whatever it is you experienced, I hope you take your new insights seriously and move forward with these new understandings deliberately.

The Moon's shift into Sagittarius brings a lighter spirit to the next couple of days--and it's an energy fire sign natives will particularly enjoy.  Both Wednesday and Thursday are four star days, why not take advantage of this jubilant energy by meditating with copal, dragon's blood, frankincense or rose incense?  Wearing mauve, purple, black or gold clothing as well as wearing amethyst, emerald, lapis lazuli or turquoise jewelry will also add a nice spark to your energy when you're out and about!

Wednesday 20 April 2011 has a bevy of aspects which suggests you will want to work intuitively through your day as the energy will be one of continuous change.  The square between the Moon and Neptune at 0: 31 AM suggests all is not as it seems (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PDT).  Look beneath the surface of things to see where someone may be trying to sell you a load of goods.  The Sun makes it's annual shift into Taurus at 3:18 AM signaling a need for us to focus on our values for the next 30 days.  Clean up, get your finances in order, organize and simplify your life, and don't forget to get out in nature a bit as well.  Brilliant insights are yours when the Moon trines Uranus at 3:29 AM and you can turn the insights into inspired creativity when the Sun sextiles Neptune at 1:44 PM.  Bringing all this inspired energy into some sort of organized and disciplined form will be easiest when the Moon sextiles Saturn at 8:59 PM.

Venus shifts into Aries at 9:06 PM and we're suddenly in love with bold, egocentric fashion and beauty statements.  Out with the dull and in with vibrant, take charge energy!  You may be scribbling all this down like mad when the Moon makes a powerful trine to Mercury at 9:53 PM; there will be a need to capture the dozens of ideas flitting through your mind from today's bountiful aspects.

Thursday 21 April 2011 is off like a shot at 0:48 AM when the Moon trines Mars.  Not the best time for West coast residents to receive an energy boost, but certainly those of you in England and Europe can get your day off to a high energy start.  You'll be feeling uplifted and lucky when the Moon trines Jupiter at 9:57 AM.  This is a doubly lucky omen since Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius.  The Moon is void of course after that aspect, so spend the remainder of the day finishing up old projects before we hit crunch time with a serious Capricorn Moon tomorrow morning.

If you haven't had a chance to check out my LAGirl13 blog lately hop over there now and check it out, in particular, look for the article on food (Jamie Oliver's food nation); there's some rather chilling info about the American food chain in it--you and your family deserve better!  Leave a comment and let me know your thoughts about the 'interesting' happenings with chow in the USA.

And till next time...

Rich Blessings!

Monday & Tuesday (18-19 April 2011)

Greetings Friends!

We are one day past the Full Moon and will probably still feel its effects to some extent today.  Monday is a three star day and Tuesday a five star day with the Moon transiting intense Scorpio.  Mysterious, secretive and even obsessive at times, Scorpio is a water sign, hence all water sign natives will benefit energetically as we begin our work week.  Scorpio colors include blood red, black, gray and brown.  Your meditations are likely to be a bit more intense during a Scorpio Moon transit, so get out your vanilla, patchouli and myrrh incense to take full advantage of your deeper access to the unseen world.  You might want to try amethyst, agate, aquamarine or bloodstone crystals/jewelry to keep you aligned with the energy of Scorpio as well.

I'd like to take a minute to thank my readers--from all over the globe!  Russia, Argentina, Malaysia, Canada, the UK, Australia, the Netherlands (where I lived very happily for several years!) and of course the USA--just to name a few.  Thank you for taking the time to check me out here; you are appreciated!

Monday 18 April 2011 begins with a tough, energy draining opposition between Mars and Saturn at 9:02 AM (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PDT).  Try to get in some additional self care work to offset fatigue or the heavy demands on your time and energy this morning.   Humanity bounces back with a powerful sextile between the Moon and the ruler of Scorpio, Pluto at 11:13 AM.  This is a really great aspect for doing self-discovery or healing work.  Meditations would probably be quite powerful and enlightening at this time--so if you're at home, try to take full advantage of this powerful aspect.

Tuesday 19 April 2011 brings a mentally stimulating Mercury/Mars sextile at 7:59 AM.  You will want to guard against being harsh in your words with others at this time.  A trine between the Moon and Venus at 9:53 PM suggests creating a quiet romantic evening with someone you love--it should go quite well; on the other hand your bank account balance may be looking pretty good at this time.  Either way, we are easing out of the energy of the Full Moon and you're probably feeling much better about life in general.  That's pretty good news for a change.

Are you ready to take a look at your personal life experience, perhaps get some answers to questions about what life options are highest and best for you at this time?  Please click here to book your personal reading.  And till next time...

Friday, Saturday & Sunday (15-17 April 2011)

Greetings Friends!

If these next three days were a movie, I'd say we're at the climax and things are really going to be rocking and rolling.  I don't know about you, but I am on information overload of late and about ready to explode with all of the new bits of data I've absorbed in the last 30 days.  While the downloads have been fast and furious, what with Mercury and Uranus in Aries, we can anticipate being able to put this information to good use after the first half of May.  Till then, take really good care of yourself; exercise, eat well, get enough rest so that the information is brilliantly assimilated--and so that you thrive despite the curve balls the Universe is going to be throwing--especially this weekend.  We are talking 0-1 stars all weekend.  Plan on bringing your own high vibration where ever you roam now through Sunday.

In addition we have two sign changes this weekend--today the Moon will slip into Libra just before midnight and then late Sunday evening the Moon will switch to Scorpio.  We'll take a look at just how you can harmonize with the Scorpio Moon as you sail into the work week during Monday's blog.  For now, let's see what you need to know about Libra.  First, Libra is an air sign, so air sign natives will be getting a bit more juice this weekend.  As you're putting together your weekend outfits think pink, rose, or pastels--or conversely you can think classic black or even royal blue.  Libra likes pretty, it likes stylish--so don't be afraid to dress your best when you're out and about Saturday and Sunday.  Try aquamarine, agate, fire agate or celestite crystals when you're pulling your outfits together and vanilla, rose and mint scents are classy vibrational matches for Libran energy.

Friday 15 April 2011 is a one aspect, zero star day that sports an opposition between the Moon and Venus at 1:49 PM (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PDT).  Love and money are both likely to be challenging arenas and this is understandable in America since the deadline for filing taxes is 18 April--this coming Monday.  Be conservative in your spending and as positive in your dealings with loved ones as possible.  The Full Moon is going to turn up the heat, and you may be (frequently) tempted to say exactly what you're thinking...but don't.   Compromise, caution and compassion are our watch words now through next Tuesday.  In addition, the Moon is void of course after that aspect and doesn't switch into Libra until 11:59 PM; you have all afternoon and evening to complete and cross off all those old projects from your to do list--don't you feel lucky?

Saturday 16 April 2011 is a one star day that starts with a crazy opposition between the Moon and Uranus at 3:07 AM.  Someone or something may jolt you awake early in the day--hopefully you'll just have an unusual dream and that will be the extent of the damage.  For those of you living in other time zones, people around you may be behaving erratically--your best bet is just to ignore them!  The square between the Moon and Pluto at 11:48 AM portends more serious problems with creepy or even violent people on the prowl.   If you can, remain safe at home, this is one way to beat this aspect--unless the potentially violent person resides with you--in which case, wander far from home for the day.  Pick whatever scenario seems safest and stay out of harms way.  If you're in the military and reading this somewhere in a global hot spot--this is a day to keep mentally sharp and aware!  The possibility for physical harm or violent arguments continues when the Moon opposes Mars at 6:09 PM.  See, I told you stay away from crazy people for the day--and I meant it!  The one 'bright' spot in the day is a conjunction between the Moon and Saturn--hardly helpful.  It's great for 'nose to the grindstone' type of work, but not all that great for lifting your mood.  It may even turn the potentially violent person into an oppressive slave driver--so you're still better off avoiding people who like to make you miserable.  If you're hoping to end the day with some wonderful conversation, don't bet on it due to an opposition between the Moon and Mercury at 10:49 PM.  Try going to bed early and getting some rest after all the energetic challenges of the day.

Sunday 17 April 2011 is our Full Moon day.  If you have blown your budget, that reality may be haunting you when the Moon opposes Jupiter at 6:05 AM.  The Full Moon (Moon in opposition to the Sun) occurs at 7:44 PM at 27 degrees of Libra; and then the Moon immediately becomes void of course. Expect a revelation about an important relationship situation in the wake of this Full Moon--especially cardinal sign folks (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) born late in their respective signs.  Although it's unlikely you'd intend to start a new project on a Sunday evening, remember the Moon is void of course till nearly midnight and postpone that new thing till tomorrow.  The Moon enters Scorpio at 11:19 PM and quickly forms a trine with Neptune at 11:54 PM; a pad of paper and a pen by your bedside will assist you in capturing vivid dreamscapes and unusual creative ideas in the midnight hour.

I don't know what you've got cooking in terms of goals and dreams for 2011, but I do know I have tons of ideas and resources to make it happen for you.  Click here to book your private session with me.  And if you've got astrological or metaphysical questions, please leave a comment below.  I'd love to help!

Till next time...

Rich Blessings!

Wednesday & Thursday (13-14 April 2011)

Greetings Friends!

We are moving ever closer to the Full Moon on 17 April and you may be able to feel the energy around you becoming more intense--this will be especially true for people born late in Libra, Capricorn, Aries and Cancer.  Remember to work toward compromise and not get yourself caught up in heated  discussions as we move toward the peak of this lunar cycle.

The waxing Moon in Leo will become void of course this afternoon and will remain that way till late evening, so take care of important tasks before lunch time if at all possible.  Today is a four star day and Thursday is a five star day--which means you won't have to work quite so hard to keep your attitude and vibration in a good place!

The Moon enters Virgo at 11:40 PM Wednesday benefitting all earth sign natives.  Black, pale blue, navy blue and brown are great colors that will harmonize with Virgo's grounded energy.  If you meditate try mint, lavender or sandalwood incense and wear amethyst, aquamarine or aventurine crystals to keep your vibes in alignment with earthy Virgo.

Wednesday 13 April 2011 begins with an early morning trine between the Moon and Mercury at 1:48 AM (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PDT).  Late night communications of all kinds benefit from this aspect, but don't be surprised if the downside is a mind that doesn't want to shut off and go to sleep!  Upbeat moods prevail early in the day as the Moon conjoins Jupiter at 3:50 AM, so you may choose to skip the caffeine boost this morning!  Use your intuition to discern right action when the Moon trines the Sun at 12:58 PM, just remember the Moon is void of course after that last aspect, so spend the afternoon finishing up old projects.  As stated earlier, the Moon enters Virgo at 11:40 PM so be prepared to do your best, detail oriented work Thursday and Friday.

Thursday 14 April 2011 begins with strange dreams or possibly deceptive behavior from others when the Moon opposes Neptune in Pisces at 0:07 AM.  And research projects, metaphysical studies or therapy sessions can be powerful and effective when the Moon trines Pluto at 11:57 AM.

I have had the privilege of working with some amazing clients.  One in particular began with a host of challenges in her career and personal life and has gone on to enjoy great success, having overcome situations that seemed overwhelming at first.  What challenges are you working with now?  Do you need to shift your career focus, maybe end or heal a relationship?  Perhaps you would like to begin a business of your own, but aren't sure which way leads out of the forest.  This is where having some intuitive insight can be powerful; click here for more information and to book a personal reading.

See you next time when we wrap up the week and take a look at the Full Moon forecast, till then...

Rich Blessings!

Monday & Tuesday (11-12 April 2011)

Greetings Friends!

The waxing Moon in Cancer is heading for its really big show at the beginning of next week.  Between political uprisings, wars, natural disasters and politics it's enough to make you wonder if the world hasn't truly gone bonkers, so brace yourself as the energy escalates this week.  A cranky, void of course Moon in Cancer on Monday with plenty of challenging aspects equals a one star day; try to avoid important meetings, etc., as the work week begins.  Tuesday is a five star day, so just keep this in mind; roll with the punches on Monday and make up for lost time on Tuesday.

The Moon enters Leo Monday evening, so all fire signs will feel an energetic boost at that time.  Wear your best green, gold, orange or red outfits while the Moon is visiting Leo territory.  Amber, frankincense, copal or myrrh incense will work nicely during your meditations and deck yourself out in tiger's eye, beryl, diamond or amber jewelry for a bit of royal flair!

Monday 11 April 2011 begins with an off kilter square between the Moon and Mercury at 0:03 AM (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PDT).  Avoid verbal skirmishes with loved ones in the hours before bedtime.  The First Quarter Moon arrives when the Moon squares the Sun at 5:05 AM; some of your plans will require rethinking as you run into unforeseen obstacles today.  In addition, the Moon becomes void of course at this point and remains void until 8:37 PM.  Don't plan on kicking off any new projects today!  A potential for violence rears its ugly head big time at 1:39 PM as Mars squares Pluto; whether in your neighborhood or on the global front, this is never a welcome matchup so be careful!  Don't miss an opportunity to think really, really big in your areas of key expertise when the Moon conjoins Jupiter in Aries at 8:59 PM.  And you may want to stay up late to add a dusting of genius to your plans when the Moon forms a late sextile to Uranus at 11:43 PM.

Tuesday 12 April 2011 gives us a high energy trine between the Moon and Mars at 10:54 AM--and in fiery Leo!  Humanity should be feeling much better after yesterday's void of course blah energy and the Mars/Pluto showdown.  You'll be able to focus and get important tasks done as we wrap up the day with a sextile between the Moon and Saturn at 7:28 PM--this may help to offset the rather unhelpful energy of Monday as well.

Ladies, I invite you to hop over to my LAGirl13 site to check out all the fun information and resources I've gathered for your health, wealth and happiness; just click here to check it all out!  And till next time...

Friday, Saturday & Sunday (8-10 April 2011)

Greetings Friends!

Mercury retrograde strikes again, my anticipated meet-up for April has been postponed (I suspected Mercury might punk me--and he did), but I hope to meet up with some of you on 16 May 2011, so save the date!  Please click here for all the details.

We're enjoying the easy communication style of a waxing Gemini Moon, but that will shortly give way to the more introspective mood of Cancer.  In addition, Pluto, the ruler of Scorpio will begin a retrograde period that lasts till 16 September 2011.  An introverted, intense retrograde Pluto, just what we need right?  Well, Pluto goes retrograde every year and we will survive this retrograde too.  Just a word about these three days--get your important work done today and Saturday because they offer four star energy.  Sunday, on the other hand, is a one star day and will require some Reiki, meditation, exercise, etc., to prepare you energetically to withstand the challenges of the day.

Cancer colors for Saturday afternoon through early Monday evening include all shades of blue, sea green and silver.  Meditation scents include camphor, jasmine, rose and sandalwood while agate, emerald, and carnelian crystals will nicely balance out Cancerian moodiness.

Friday 8 April 2011 begins with a heavy dose of discipline when the Moon trines Saturn at 6:40 AM (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PDT).  Key tasks can be discharged swiftly and effectively under the aegis of this aspect.  A square between the Moon and Venus at 9:21 AM suggests you will want to tread carefully in love and money matters as they are likely to be a bit rocky at the moment--though a sextile between the Moon and Jupiter at 1:21 PM suggests you may quickly discharge any challenges you encounter.  Intuitive guidance locks arms with well thought out action when the Moon sextiles the Sun at 4:48 PM.  And last, but not least, communication tasks receive a nice boost at 7:24 PM when the Moon sextiles Mercury.  The Moon enters a void of course period at this point, so delay starting new projects (if you can) till the Moon moves into Cancer.

Saturday 9 April 2011 gets off to an interesting start due to Pluto beginning retrograde motion at 1:49 AM.   Atomic energy, metaphysical studies, death, sex, and transformation are just some of the things that Pluto rules and this energy will now be intensely focused internally.  Scorpios may find themselves uncovering amazing insights about themselves and those around them and by Fall will be ready to take their newfound insights out into the fast lane of new life adventures and experiences.  The Moon finally moves into Cancer at 2:02 PM at which time our focus shifts to Mom, our home, family, cooking and water related activities (all water signs will benefit from this Moon placement).  A conjunction between the Sun and Mercury at 4:48 PM promises opportunities for creative communication--great for speakers, writers, students and teachers.  Stubbornly eccentric behavior is possible at 5:06 PM when the Moon squares Uranus--this could also cause your technical equipment to screw up, so be prepared.  Hopefully any incidents you encounter will quickly resolve.

Sunday 10 April 2011 presents us with an early morning square between the Moon and Mars at 1:52 AM; note to self--don't become embroiled in arguments with anyone in the later hours of the evening as this aspect is building to a climax.  This nasty aspect sets us up for a rather ugly (and potentially violent) opposition between the Moon and Pluto at 4:01 AM.  This is definitely a time to err on the side of discretion and not bravado; keep your temper in check and bite your tongue for safety sake.  Cantankerous partners may rub you the wrong way when the Moon squares Saturn in Libra at 2:45 PM; you'll find them unreasonable so don't bother trying to strike a compromise.   Inflated promises (yours or those of another) are possible when the Moon squares Jupiter at 10:25 PM, so keep your promises and expectations modest for now.  The Universe tries to play nice by offering humanity a late trine between the Moon and Venus at 11:16 PM; now is the time to kiss and make up with a loved one!

And that's the week end and weekend lineup; take care, be safe and till next time...

Wednesday & Thursday (6-7 April 2011)

Greetings Friends!

The waxing Moon is void of course in Taurus all day today, but Thursday we switch things up when the Moon enters the sign of Gemini.  Wednesday needs to be a relaxed, finish up old projects kind of a day and Thursday could be interesting since the ruler of Gemini (Mercury) is back pedaling in Aries as we speak.  Both are four star days, but that doesn't mean you should chuck your self-care routines--practice makes perfect, or at least better, right?

Gemini, the sign of the twins, is an air sign known for its communicative nature; Gemini is the perceiver!  While the Moon transits through Gemini all air signs will benefit, but other signs can get in on the action  by wearing yellow, orange and iridescent colors.  Agate, moss agate and alexanderite crystals/jewelry may help you deal with the confusion that accompanies a Mercury retrograde, while mastic, mint or dragon's blood incense may help cut down on monkey mind during your meditations.

Wednesday 6 April 2011 sports only one aspect and it is a conjunction between the Sun and Jupiter at 7:40 AM (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PDT).  Grab a pen and capture your creative visions--they are likely to be gargantuan, but just know they will need some retooling once Mercury resumes forward motion (and removes itself from its retrograde shadow through mid-May).  This theme is reiterated by the fact that the Moon is void of course all day, making it best to forestall new projects for the time being.

Thursday 7 April 2011 the Moon squares Neptune at 4:32 AM and someone may be taking aim at us  in a  secretive, deceptive way.   Keep a weather eye out for con artists, scams and deceptions.  A surprising bit of news may arrive early this morning (7:19 AM) when the Moon forms a sextile to Uranus.  Plan a trip to the gym during your lunch hour or have a light lunch and walk in order to take advantage of a mid-day high energy sextile at 12: 56 PM between the Moon and Mars.

Monday & Tuesday (4-5 April 2011)

Greetings Friends!

I am very excited to invite you to an astrological meetup and Full Moon celebration on 17 April in the Los Angeles area.  I will be discussing the details of the Full Moon, what it means to the various signs and how you can tap into the rising energies to focus your dreams into being.  These Full Moon celebrations/meetups will happen every month at the Lucy Florence Cultural Center and you can find the details of the event here.  I would really love to meet my readers in person, so I hope to see you there!

The waxing Moon is moving forward today into Taurus this afternoon--this is of benefit to all earth sign natives.  We will want to work on keeping life simple, organizing ourselves (something that is especially helpful with Mercury retrograde) as well as taking time to enjoy the simple pleasures in life, like nature.  Monday is a four star day and Tuesday a five star day, so take some time to plan out how you want to move forward after the retrograde.  This is especially so with regard to your financial dreams.  Those dreams and goals that excited you in January have probably hit a few bumps in the road, so now's the time to look at new strategies for getting things back on track.

Taurus is a fixed earth sign and is focused on values--money, relationships/love--these are the things its ruler Venus focuses on.  Try wearing blue, cream, green and in particular spring green, to be a vibrational match to Taurus' vibes.  Burn musk, patchouli, rose or vanilla incense during your meditations and carry or wear moss agate, azurite, carnelian or jade crystals/jewelry.

Monday 4 April 2011 the Moon conjoins Mercury at 3:04 AM and we may find it hard to sleep, what with whirring thoughts racing through our minds early in the day (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PDT).   The Moon is void of course after that aspect, so I don't recommend getting an early jump on new projects at this time.  In fact, if you can postpone starting important new projects till the middle of May, you'll save yourself the aggravation of needing to do things over (thanks to Mercury rx).  The Moon enters Taurus at 4:46 PM, which means you may find yourself waiting for confirmation from others for most of this day along with various other delays, all rather typical for Mercury retrograde/long void of course periods.  Focus on finishing up old projects and be prepared to jet out of the starting gate tomorrow.

The really big news today is that Neptune makes its entrance into its home sign of Pisces at 6:36 AM--and this is huge since Neptune last traveled through Pisces in 1847-1861.  Neptune and its corresponding sign of Pisces rule the aspects of life that are mysterious and magical:  music, art, dance, movies, dreams, religion/spirituality.  Expect these areas of life experience to thrive now till January 2026 (yep, that's a long time!).  The less savory aspects of Neptune in Pisces are the actions of hidden enemies, self-undoing (substance abuse) and conspiracies--there are always two sides to every coin; watch for these concerns with self and loved ones and be intent on manifesting only the most positive aspects of Neptune in Pisces.  Don't expect to notice a whole lot of changes immediately in your life experience, but over time your creative nuances may be come richer and immensely enjoyable as will your meditations, spiritual development and desire to uplift and support mankind--the Christ came into the world during a Piscean age.  Given the hurly burly of the world today, we can use some spiritual upliftment, don't you think?

The last aspect of the day reinforces Neptune's move into Pisces, and that is a sextile between the Moon and Neptune that occurs at 4:48 PM.  Can you be grounded and mystical this afternoon?  This aspect offers that rather unusual possibility to humanity today, so why not intend it?

Tuesday 5 April 2011 begins with a powerful trine between the Moon and Pluto at 7:47 AM; healing work, metaphysical studies, deep research and maybe even hunting for that missing personal item benefit under the energetic influence of this aspect.  The love boat (and your financial concerns) enjoys smooth sailing when the Moon forms a sextile to Venus at 4:02 PM.  Perhaps you can meet your partner for an early dinner before heading home from work!

And that's it for the start of this week, take care and till next time...

Rich Blessings,
