Blog Update

Greetings Friends!

After a week of trying to sort out the appropriate new location for this blog I have moved it to  I would have left it on the temporary site, but it was never intended for astrology--so hence the change.  You will be able to subscribe, leave comments, etc., and except for (eventually) getting rid of the 'wordpress' name, this will be the permanent home for the blog.

My sincere apologies for the poor visibility on this platform and then the subsequent moves; I'm afraid Mercury retrograde is having more than it's normal amount of fun with me.  I thank you for following me and look forward to posting on our new site.

Rich Blessings!

Astrology Predictions for Wednesday thru Thursday (25-26 July 2012)

Greetings Friends,

Since so many of you are signed up for the blog now located here (just click the tab marked 'Body, Mind & Spirit'), I am leaving the blog where it is for the time being.

This is a temporary site for the blog; I am working on creating a wordpress site just for the astrology blog so that it can post properly.  I thank you for your patience and if you have any questions or comments you can leave them here or on the site.

Rich Blessings!

Greetings Friends!

I am still posting on the site for the time being; you can view the post here.  Wednesday will be the first post I do from this platform since the tech issues developed last weekend.  My fingers are crossed that it posts without further challenges.

Astrology Predictions for Wednesday thru Thursday (18-19 July 2012)

Greetings Friends!

The Moon in Cancer plays hostess to the New Moon this evening--and ordinarily that would mean new projects launched or old ones rebooted.  However with Mercury, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto all retrograde (with Mercury retrograde being particularly difficult to deal with) I might suggest you spend this new lunar cycle prepping to launch projects during the Fall or tweaking past projects that had a wobbly (aka not so successful) start.  If push comes to shove and you must start something new (like a job, or moving to a new home), be prepared for a 'do-over' after Mercury stops doing back flips 22 August 2012.  Quite often the last lap of the retrograde (known as a retrograde shadow) is when some significant and hitherto unknown bit of information finally drops, thus changing your plans; try to wait it out and see if something unknown to you (now) needs to be factored into your plans.

So having said all that, Wednesday is a one star day and Thursday is five star day.  The New Moon clocks in late, so Wednesday is a day to expect little, rest much and consider (very carefully) your plans (and contingency plans, just in case) for this upcoming lunar cycle.  And, as always, do plans some self-care work for Wednesday to assist you in maintaining a high vibration no matter what.

Wednesday 18 July 2012 we may be chaffing under obligations from loved ones or other partners when the Moon squares Saturn at 2:24 PM (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PDT).  Angry, frustrated energy meets rebellious, freedom oriented energy when Mars opposes Uranus at 7:56 PM; the fur is likely to fly, to say the least.  And the New Moon finally clocks in at 9:24 PM (at 27 degrees of Cancer).  If your goals for the next lunar cycle include home and family affairs, property investments, activities that create greater security for you and your loved ones or the development of your intuitive abilities, then you're on the right track for this cycle!

Thursday 19 July 2012 the Moon forms a sextile to Jupiter giving humanity a feeling of optimism as the new lunar cycle gets underway.  Some surprising news, clever ideas or a yen to do something unusual is quite possible thanks to the trine between the Moon and Uranus at 7:08 PM.  Moon sextile Mars at 8:12 PM suggests a trip to the gym or a romantic rendezvous will be energetic and thoroughly enjoyed ;)

Join LAGirl13 on Facebook and Twitter for more great spiritual, astrological and wellness information to help you thrive.  And if it's a more personal look at money, career or love issues, please book your private Tarot or Astrology consultation here.

Check in with me Friday morning for the astrological wrap up to your work week and all the details for your weekend, all right here.  Take care and until then...

Rich Blessings!

Astrology Predictions for Monday thru Tuesday (16-17 July 2012)

Greetings Friends!

We kick off the work week with the Moon in Gemini, but it very quickly goes void of course, leading to a long day of tying up loose ends on old projects or resting.  The aspects for Monday are good ones, so we'll give it four stars, despite the void of course period.  The Moon slips into Cancer at 5:31 PM Monday, but Tuesday has far less energetic support and winds up being just a one star day.  Plan some self-care work to balance out the really wonky energy on Tuesday.

The Moon in Cancer brings our focus to issues of home, family, security, intuition, investment property and maternal/paternal love.  Wear shades of blue or green--especially those that remind you of the sea, along with white or pearlescent shades.  Moonstone, amber, clear quartz, opal or green turquoise are excellent choices for balancing your emotions.  Scents of jasmine, myrrh, rose, violet, or sandalwood also balance emotions and can help you keep calm when under emotional upheaval or frustration.

Monday 16 July 2012 we begin the day with a disciplined focus thanks to an early morning trine between the Moon and Saturn at 3:56 AM (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PDT).  The Moon is void of course after that aspect, so avoid starting new projects (if you can wait) until after the New Moon on Wednesday evening.  We will enter the dark of the Moon phase of this lunar cycle around 9:30 PM, so there's very little get up and go left in this cycle.  Rest, restore, and plan your next move for the New Moon cycle to come.  Do keep in mind the admonition against launching major changes while Mercury is retrograde--if you can at all help it.

Tuesday 17 July 2012 we have an early morning potential for disruptive behavior from an overbearing individual (if the energies get out of hand, that is) when Mars trines Jupiter at 5:40 AM.  The Mars energy square to the Moon at 8:34 AM suggests this is a day to be prayed/meditated up as we are likely to meet folks who are frustrated or spoiling for a fight.  Heavy handed bosses and VIP's require careful handling when the Moon opposes Pluto at 8:48 AM while crazy antics, fanatical behavior and just plain weirdness are the likely hallmarks when the Moon squares rebel Uranus (retrograde) at 10:12 AM.  The last aspect in this array of unhelpful aspects is a square between feisty Mars (again) and transformative Pluto--also again, at 1:23 PM; you may just want to call in sick and skip the foray into adversity all together.

Astrology Predictions for Friday thru Saturday (13-15 July 2012)

Greetings Friends!

The waning Moon in Taurus is wrapping up the final leg of this lunar cycle before the New Moon in Cancer (18 July 20120).  Our focus is on getting things organized, spending some time in nature and making our investments pay off--or creating new investments to secure our future.  By Saturday morning we switch gears with a Gemini Moon and become perceptive, chatty, and travel oriented--just in time to enjoy the weekend.

The Moon becomes void of course at 12:46 PM Friday and enters Gemini at 5:26 AM Saturday morning.  Friday is a one aspect, four star day with a lengthy void of course period.  Saturday is also a four star day and Sunday is a five star day--all in all, not too bad for the weekend.

The Moon in Gemini encourages you to be thoughtful, sociable, quick witted, and full of curiosity.  Yellow, orange, green, silver, black or blue colors suit the versatility of the Gemini Moon as do the energies of moonstone, jade, diamond or tiger's eye crystals.  Mint or dragons' blood incense or essential oils add an energetic boost when you're feeling low or would like to wake up without caffeine.

Friday 13 July 2012 Uranus in Aries enters retrograde status at 2:49 AM; combined with the impending Mercury retrograde, it's a huge blinking sign from the Universe that says, "Back up your computer right away." (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PDT)  Uranus, the ruler of the sign Aquarius, also rules technology, sudden shocks,  revolution, and explosive, radical, or fanatical behavior.   It works a bit like Mercury, in that it deals with our thought processes, but its energy is fast--and often compared to a 'download' of information rather than a traditional thought process. We can expect signs of this energy to be more visible over the next several days as Uranus shifts into reverse (it will not return to forward motion until 14 December 2012).  Uranus has played its part in the Wall Street rallies and the Arab spring.  We may see a return of this activity--or something similar as Uranus regains forward motion toward the end of this year and into 2013.

The Moon forms a sextile to the Sun at 12:46 PM and then becomes void of course until tomorrow morning.  Allow intuitive prompts to help you determine the correct steps in your key projects--just remember to avoid starting anything new until the Moon switches signs tomorrow.

Saturday 14 July 2012 the Moon enters Gemini at 5:26 AM beginning a day of fast changing energy.  We begin with a square between the Moon and Neptune at 11:01 AM; all that glitters is not gold and we may find ourselves left with muddled thinking and more questions than answers in key areas of concern.  Expect a bit more clarity tomorrow morning and avoid making hasty decisions for now.  You can communicate your love and affection with others with a bit more grace thanks to a sextile between Mercury and Venus at 3:42 PM; this is also a great aspect for hashing out the details of decorative plans or artistic/musical projects.

Hit the gym or clean up that messy garage in the afternoon to take advantage of the energy boost form the Moon forming a trine to Mars at 6:05 PM.   Mercury enters retrograde status at 7:16 PM affecting communications, transportation, thought processes, travel and technology--to name a few things.  Our thinking will be off--so plan ahead, check and confirm appointment times.  Avoid signing agreements, moving or changing jobs--avoid making any major commitments during a Mercury retrograde cycle as these agreements often need to be revisited after the retrograde period ends.

Good fortune for air sign natives (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) arrives in the form of a Moon-Jupiter conjunction at 7:56 PM; fire sign natives (Aries, and Leo) also benefit.  This conjunction might be a bit of a challenge for Sagittarius, Virgo or Pisces natives.  Later we may feel burdened by our children, romantic ties or creative projects when the Sun squares Saturn at 9:14 PM.  Ingenious ideas pop up out of the blue thanks to a sextile between the Moon and Uranus at 10:43 PM--be sure to capture these ideas for later consideration.

Sunday 15 July 2012 the Moon sextile to Mercury at 6:46 AM is a great time to hammer out your plans for the week or work on communication projects.  Beauty/decorating, love or money projects are looking really good when the Moon conjoins Venus at 7:30 AM--arise early and take your sweetie out to breakfast in order to take advantage of the energy.

Astrology Predictions for Wednesday thru Thursday (11-12 July 2012)

Greetings Friends!

The waning Moon in Aries becomes void of course at 2:23 AM leading to a day long void of course period (the Moon enters Taurus at 4:30 PM).  Both Wednesday and Thursday are one star days; extra sleep, nutritious food, exercise, meditation, Reiki and aromatherapy are just some of the holistic tools helpful in coping with the challenges of low vibrational days.  In addition we have Mercury entering retrograde status Saturday evening--you may have already begun to notice the effects of the pending retrograde--we've been in the retrograde shadow since 27 June.

The Moon in Taurus focuses on abundance, acquisitions, love, inner peace, reliability and security.  Shades from nature, such as cream, blue, spring green, and turquoise as well as jade, lapis lazuli, malachite, green tourmaline or carnelian crystals work well with a Moon in Taurus transit.  Rose, violet,  vanilla, musk or sage incense and essential oils will allow you to enjoy the healing benefits of nature and engender a rested and calm feeling.

11 July 2012 the Moon opposes Saturn at 2:23 AM and then becomes void of course; obligations, snags or delays may lead to a long day or troubled sleep (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PDT).  The Moon enters Taurus at 4:30 PM; make sure you stick to mundane chores or rest until the Moon changes signs.  Creative work and spiritual studies benefit from the sextile between the Moon and Neptune at 10:10 PM--you might even have some intuitive insights through dreams if you go to bed early enough to catch the vibe from this aspect.

12 July 2012 begin your day with some powerful law of attraction work or affirmations to bring transformations in key areas of concern when the Moon trines Pluto at 8:34 AM.  Communications and travel snafus are likely when the Moon squares Mercury at 5:35 PM; consider this the prelude to Mercury's pending retrograde and begin double checking your appointments as well as keeping careful track of commitments now through 22 August 2012.

Astrology Predictions for Monday thru Tuesday (9-10 July 2012)

Greetings Friends!

The waning Moon enters Aries at 5:14 AM thus setting a brisk pace for the beginning of the work week.  The Last Quarter Moon on Tuesday gives us an opportunity to review which of our projects are finished and which will need a reboot next week with the arrival of the New Moon.  Monday boasts only two out of five stars--so we have another Self-Care Monday (exercise, meditation, rest, and nutritious food are best everyday, but especially when there is little energetic support for us, Celestially speaking).  Tuesday is two stars too, but with the added challenge of the Last Quarter Moon (Moon square the Sun) you might find it a tougher day than Monday; so do get in some self-care work on Tuesday as well.

The Moon in Aries brings our focus to circumstances that require our courage, fierceness, growth, impatience and charisma.  Shades of red, pink, white, yellow or scarlet work best under an Aries Moon transit as do carnelian, bloodstone, amethyst, coral or quartz crystals.  Cinnamon, frankincense, copal, dragon's blood or musk candles, essential oils or incense will invigorate and inspire you to do your best even under trying circumstances.

Monday 9 July 2012 a need for compromise with others--others who may be a bit of a pain in the neck, arrives in the form of an opposition between the Moon and Mars at 11:41 AM.  Try to be the saner mind that prevails when someone else loses their temper (Note:  all times in this blog are PDT).  A feeling of optimism, joy and even good luck is quite welcome when the Moon forms a sextile to Jupiter at 5:06 PM.  Heavy handed manipulation or power plays from the boss or a VIP are possible when the Moon squares Pluto at 8:44 PM; try to make yourself scarce, if you can.  Innovative notions, creative downloads and surprising--even shocking revelations are in vogue when the Moon conjoins Uranus at 9:47 PM; be sure to capture any ingenious ideas the Universe tosses to you before they slip away!

Tuesday 10 July 2012 love and money matters are feeling a bit less thorny thanks to a sextile between the Moon and Venus at 1:18 AM.  Your mind may be racing with new ideas for a special communications project--and at an unhelpful hour of the day if you are in PDT, thanks to a trine between the Moon and Mercury at 3:59 AM.  The Last Quarter Moon (Moon square Sun) arrives at 6:48 PM; which project did you finish during this lunar cycle and which old one (or new one) would you like to boot up during the next cycle?  It's time to hash that out--and this may be brought to light by a challenge with a project that hasn't gone quite the way you intended.  Allow what surfaces now to inform you how to move forward during the next lunar cycle--keeping in mind we're about to enter a Mercury retrograde--for real, not just the retrograde shadow come 14 July.  If you can't sign that contract, move or launch that new project before the 14th it's probably best to wait until this Mercury retrograde has completed its shadow period (22 August 2012).

Astrology Predictions for Friday thru Sunday (6-8 July 2012)

Greetings Friends!

We're wrapping up the work week and getting weekend ready under an Aquarian Moon.  The Moon becomes void of course at 8:48 AM making most of Friday a void of course experience--until the Moon pops into Pisces at 9:29 PM.  Friday is a four star day (with a long void of course period), Saturday is a two star day and Sunday is a one aspect, four star day that also sports a long void of course period.  The Moon won't change signs till early Monday morning.  All in all it sounds as though this is the weekend to rest, wrap up old projects and prepare yourself for the work week ahead.

Moon in Pisces is a good time for day dreaming, meditation, creative projects and expanding your spiritual practices.  Shades of blue, green and purple work well with this energy as do moonstone, amethyst, aquamarine, jade or turquoise crystals.  Try scents of jasmine, lavender, sage or sandalwood in candles, essential oils or incense to relax and restore your energetic balance this weekend.  

Friday 6 July 2012 we in America will be working to restore our balance after a mid-week holiday.  The Moon trines Saturn at 6:48 AM and then becomes void of course, leaving us to rest, clean up or finish up old projects (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PDT).

Saturday 7 July 2012 the Moon conjoins Neptune at 2:40 AM bringing intuitive or prophetic dreams; be prepared to write down your dreams when you awaken so these insights don't slip away in the morning light.  Your normal enthusiasm for life may feel blocked when the Moon squares Jupiter at 7:40 AM.  Meditate, say affirmations or do law of attraction work to modify unwanted behaviors when the Moon forms a sextile to Pluto at 12:04 PM.  The love boat--or the money boat, may be enduring some tempestuous weather when the Moon squares Venus at 2:29 PM; things look a wee bit better by Tuesday of next week.

Sunday 8 July 2012 the Moon offers actionable intuitive insights when it forms a trine to the Sun at 4:00 AM; have you got pen and paper bedside to capture those informational gems?  The Moon is void of course after that last aspect and remains so the remainder of the day.

Join the LAGirl13 community on Facebook and Twitter for more astrological insights and spiritual information to help you to thrive.  If you'd like personal insights into love, career or money matters, please book your private Astrology or Tarot consultation here.

This weekend's Wisdom Flash is a reminder of how inherently wonderful a being you are; I hope you enjoy it and your weekend and I'll see you back here Monday morning with the latest astrological happenings.

Astrology Predictions Wednesday thru Thursday (4-5 July 2012)

Greetings Friends!

We are gradually moving away from the intense energy of the Capricorn Full Moon.  The Moon becomes void of course early Wednesday and doesn’t enter Aquarius until late afternoon making Wednesday a good day to mop up and complete old projects rather than launching new endeavors.  Wednesday is a four star day and Thursday is a three star day, so as we pull away from the Full Moon we get a little bit more help from the Universe—which is always helpful!

Aquarius is inventive, revolutionary, and it's ruler Uranus rules this topic--astrology!  Get out your neon/fluorescent clothing and accessories or try turquoise, hot pink, silver or white to get in tune with the Aquarian Moon (which is my Moon sign, by the way).  Turquoise, celestite, amethyst, aquamarine or moonstone crystals work well with the energy of Aquarius as does mint, lavender, or violet scents.

Wednesday 4 July 2012 the day begins with a square between the Moon and Saturn, so be prepared--duty calls; there will be no ifs ands or buts about it (even if it is a national holiday in the USA and note, all times indicated in this blog are PDT).  A morning chat with a loved one (or a chat about money) goes well thanks to a Mercury-Venus sextile at 6:27 AM.  Ingenious ideas and communications download from the Universe when the Moon trines Uranus at 10:54 AM.  Hit the gym on the way home and take advantage of a trine between the Moon and Mars at 6:49 PM.   Love at first sight is a possibility when Venus trines Uranus, the Awakener, at 7:36 PM; look your best in case love spies you out tonight!

Thursday 5 July 2012 begins with a giant shot of good luck, joy and optimism thanks to a Moon-Jupiter trine at 2:12 AM.  A mini download of intuitive or creative information arrives at 7:53 AM when the Moon forms a sextile to Uranus.  That new lover you spied out last night may be looking better and better when the Moon trines Venus at 8:08 AM.  The Moon opposes Mercury at 9:00 AM; try to keep your conversations light and take into consideration the perspective of others to avoid contentious situations.

I'll be available for readings on the 4th of July; for further information check the LAGirl13 Facebook; if you've got love, money or career issues, I've got answers for you.  Book your private Astrology or Tarot consultation here.

Happy 4th of July to my American friends and I'll see you back here Friday morning for the weekly wrap up and a look at the energy for the weekend ahead; be well and till next time...

Rich Blessings!

Astrology Predictions for Monday thru Tuesday (2-3 July 2012)

Greetings Friends!

The Moon in Sagittarius quickly shifts to a serious business Capricorn Moon Monday afternoon in preparation for Tuesday’s Full Moon in Capricorn.  Monday is a two star day and Tuesday a one star day; consider self-care pretty much a necessity to keep your energy uplifted during the Full Moon energy.

Moon in Capricorn is ambitious, frugal, self-disciplined and business oriented; somber black, dark brown, blue or dark green colors suit the disciplined energy of Capricorn quite well.  Black amber, malachite, lapis lazuli or diamond crystals also suit this transit as does musk, patchouli, mint or jasmine incense or essential oils for stress relief or self care work.

Monday 2 July 2012 we begin the day in a disciplined mood thanks to a sextile between the Moon and Saturn at 4:08 AM (Note:  all times indicated in this blog are PDT).   Frustration could lead to temper tantrums when the Moon squares Mars at 3:21 PM; avoid the usual angry suspects, if you can—especially now that we’re in the lead in to the Full Moon.  The Moon is void of course until 3:51 PM when it enters Capricorn.  Get a boost for your spiritual practices (prayer, meditation, law of attraction or affirmation work) and creative projects when the Moon forms a sextile to Neptune at 8:39 PM. 

Tuesday 3 July 2012 enhance your affirmation, law of attraction or intimacy power when the Moon conjoins Pluto at 5:11 AM.  Mars enters Libra 5:32 AM; brace yourself for passionate partners!   Mars is (finally) out of Virgo and you should see a bit of movement in the area of partnerships, decorative projects, harmonious interactions with others and the like.  Crazy may appear to be the favored flavor of the day when the Moon squares Uranus at 5:45 AM (notice we have had all this energetic movement before 6:00 AM!); be prepared for erratic, stubborn/weird behavior from the usual suspects or even bizarre news from the media--avoid major media sources for next 48 hours and void overdosing on negativity. 

The Full Moon arrives at 11:52 AM at 12 degrees of Capricorn; those of you with planets in Cancer, Libra or Aries near the 12 degrees can expect culminations involving home/family, partnership, career or personal affairs.
