September 29th to October 5th, 2014

Monday: Venus in Libra, Sagittarius Moon

We're in a fire sign trend, and this is another day when the heat, enthusiasm, passion, and sometimes confrontational nature of fire is on! The Moon and Mars meet at 2:34 pm EDT. The Libra Sun, Uranus in Aries and Jupiter in Leo are feeding this Sagittarius fire. The message is get moving! Be in the world experiencing all life has to offer. It's a day of spontaneous action. Enter a learning program, join a group or class, get out of your usual environment and do something that opens your mind. Keep in mind that Mercury is near retrograde and take no unnecessary risks. High risk is a no-no, but stepping out and losing some fear and allowing yourself new experiences is a yes! Today is bold, fierce and strong minded.  Venus moves to Libra where she is so at home! Libra, your graces and charms are all activated now! This helps all of us be more agreeable and less critical with each other. The Moon moves v.o.c at 11:29 pm EDT until Wednesday at 12:41 am. Tomorrow it may be hard to track people down or get anything significant accomplished without confusion. Procrastination is out, taking charge of your life is in! Today's color is orange.

Tuesday: Void of course Moon

All day the Moon is void, waiting to move to Capricorn overnight. You might wait out a big decision, not have enough information or the right people in place. It's ok! Maybe it's best since tomorrow's energy is more organized. Take care of routine things, know that shopping today is not really recommended. Save receipts. Have backup plans. Expect no shows. Go out and have fun if you can manage it! Explore a topic of interest. Wander if you can take time away from the day's usual tasks or places. Let go of pressure-your own or expecting something or someone else. Things will take their sweet time today. Some will move fast and some will move barely. Today's color is green.

Wednesday: Capricorn Moon

Welcome to October! The Capricorn Moon time starts at 12:41 am EDT. The 2nd quarter Moon, between New and Full, is at 3:33 pm. Today is meant for progress and productivity. Mercury sets up meetings and talks this morning. Some of that will relate to using discretion and being part of plans that must be kept secret for a while. Do that. Use very strong judgement around information and privacy and all business dealings. Find creativity in plans and justice and good balance in partnerships. It's a no nonsense day. Venus in Libra is encouraging more equality in one on one relationships. Today's color is black.

Thursday: Capricorn Moon

The Moon aligns with Saturn and squares Uranus. Keep your cool. Serious matters are up for trouble shooting, possible compromise, and solutions with built in defaults. Mercury retrograde begins Saturday. Take your time and make flexible plans. Finish or make good progress with a project. Uranus's element of instability may frazzle us today. Think of the solid, non negotiable core values, strategies or traits you have and rely on those as other things swirl around and there may be upsets.  Bring yourself back to the tried and true and remind others of that too. The Moon is void at 12:18 pm EDT. Best business is done in the morning or before that time in your zone. Today's color is navy blue. 

Friday: Aquarius Moon

At 4:00 am EDT, the Moon sails into Aquarius, an inventive and collaborative sign. Venus and the Sun in Libra align with, and Mercury is square to, the Moon. Negotiate and sort out the best ideas. Listen to each other fully. Consider alternative approaches. It's a social, people oriented day suited to conferences, events, and partnerships formed to get things done! Be part of a team or group if you have a chance. It's a good day or night to be with friends or attend a gathering. Though tonight it's best to play on the safe side as Mars and Uranus approach an overnight trine and things can happen unexpectedly and fast. Keep your head up tonight. Stay in the safety zone. Today's color is light blue.

Saturday: Sun square Pluto, Mercury retrograde

Beware of grandiose plans, taking on too much, and making promises you won't keep. The Sun square Pluto in Libra/Capricorn and Jupiter across from the Moon can both mean conflicts in plans or scale of things.  Mercury is retrograde officially at 1:02 pm EDT, and this first day is known for having all the symptoms including changes of mind, inability to follow through on a plan or schedule, technical difficulties, and unexpected visitors or interactions with people from the past. Even under different circumstances with Mercury, Saturn square to the Moon would mean stubborn opinions and roadblocks. Expect a detour one way or another today. Maybe it'll  be a pleasant one. Don't hold too tight to schedules or expectations, and it'll be easier on everyone.  The Moon is void of course at 2:32 pm. Know who your friends are, or at least who they were yesterday. Stay in the safe zone tonight. Today's color is black.

Sunday: Pisces Moon

The Moon is in Pisces as of 5:24 am EDT. Mercury is retrograde in Scorpio, and Mars is trine to Uranus. The Moon also meets Neptune today. Some pitfalls include deception including people who present differently than their true intent or nature.  That may be someone who reappears in your life now. Move very carefully and take your time, and above all trust that inner voice of discretion. Pisces Moon sometimes means we let boundaries down more easily. Just be careful. Literally. Mars is trine to Uranus and incidents happen very quickly and unexpectedly with those two in harmony.  Maybe it's an exciting adventure day, and that's best case scenario. It is not a good day to take obvious risks of any kind. No gambling, speeding, or other impulsive behavior. Take good care of pets and the kids.  Watch Disney movies (you know what I mean. Easy does it.) Today's color is green.

September 22nd to 28th! 2014

I'm booking appointments for readings in the Portland area beginning November 7th at Full Moon time. A one hour reading will be $55 for the month of November! The effects of October eclipses and Mercury retrograde create flux and shifts, and as November moves in, intuitive Scorpio energy takes over! It's a beautiful time for a tarot reading, a look at your astrology chart, or some impartial coaching that may include readings, listening and suggesting alternatives, or guided meditation for just you! Team up with a friend and share a 90 minute session for $80. Restore & gather energy for the winter season! I look forward to doing these sessions in person. Email me to book Monday, Thursday, Friday and some weekend times in South Portland or a location convenient to you. 

Exciting times we're in! Let your session bring some focus & peace, a decision or affirmation. 

Happy Autumn!

Monday: Autumnal Equinox, Virgo Moon

Earth energies infuse this day that ends with the Sun shift to Libra at 10:29 pm EDT, the start of fall. Therefore, the first true day of the season is tomorrow! (When everyone says today is the first day of fall, you can remind them it's still summer until 10:29 p, 7:29p Pacific, or adjust to your own time zone.) Pluto is direct at 8:36 pm as well. What have you been healing and now find yourself ready to move on from? Pluto in Capricorn is a healing influence now, and making an offering to the earth is a great way to celebrate the Solstice. It can be simple, like pumpkin seeds, or water with sea salt that's been absorbing any negative energy from your home or workplace.  Capricorn is an earth sign, and the Virgo Moon is also a time to honor and thank the earth for all it provides for us. Bury something you can do without now, literally or otherwise. This is a day to do simple rituals with personal meaning and a connection to the greater good as well. In your routine, ground in useful tasks and accomplish things that make a contribution and feed your soul. Today's color is black. 

Tuesday: Virgo Moon

The Virgo Moon is void of course from 8:15 am until 11:59 pm EDT on this first full day of fall. Keep your focus simple and calendar flexible. If important meetings happen, leave plans somewhat adjustable and revisit them tomorrow. It's a good day or night to "sleep on it" and see how your mind bends around a plan or idea. Virgo is the sign of service to others and this is a favorable day for pitching in and getting cleaning, sorting, and home related things taken care of. It's a great day for walking, running, yoga and other activities that don't require competition or a partner. The Moon in harmony with Saturn and meeting Venus inspires us to sort things out in relationships in order to manage routines and responsibilities better together. That includes ex partners who share children, a business or property.  Venus is friendly and practical with the Virgo Moon today. Reconsider and get ready to step into new routines or revised plans. The New Moon arrives overnight. Today's color is pink.

Wednesday: New Moon in Libra

This New Moon is a rush of energy! Uranus is active from Aries, across from the Moon and in harmony with Jupiter in Leo. All that glitters really may turn to gold this week if Jupiter has his way! Uranus is the destroyer and re-creator. The phrase "all things are possible" comes to mind. Also these may be things you least thought could happen! I hope the New Moon brings wondrous surprises your way, today or in the weeks ahead. Meanwhile, I encourage you to align with these Jupiter aspects, blessings, benefits, and learning, by seeking opportunities, alliances, and innovative ways of doing things. Now is better than later since Mercury retrograde is just ahead. What can you make happen and bring together now?! Invite in what you're hoping for, without urgency or a sense of one particular expectation. Just invite in friendship, love, abundance, solutions and let them unfold! Do contact people who can help you in the direction you seek! Libra New Moon is people oriented and above all, balanced and fair. Change a situation that's full of imbalance. Release a responsibility that's not really yours. Find new ways of dividing and sharing and living together happily.  White is today's color.

Thursday: Jupiter trine Uranus

The Libra Moon is in harmony with Jupiter in Leo and across from Uranus in Aries as the two form a trine. This is a "Wow" day with effects that last longer than just one moment or day, so if nothing spectacular graces your Thursday, rest assured, these planets are aligning for all of us in a time release way. Jupiter in Leo is creative and about birthing and growing anything from a child to a business to more opportunities for travel. Uranus has the speed of wildfire in Aries, and quick action, answers to longstanding questions or offers happen swiftly, whether you were prepared or not! Look for these kinds of things within a few days on either side of this and especially before October 4th when Mercury retrograde begins. As you manifest, give back as well. Keep fair exchanges in mind, whether it's money, friendship or energy. Justice wins. This may be the time to give up a behavior that's limiting or ego based, become more attuned to others, and see how the universe gives back! Today's color is red.

Friday: Moon conjunct Mercury in Libra, Scorpio Moon

This is a day for fair outcomes, dealing with legal situations and finding balance in partnership and love relationships. The Moon and Mercury give you this opportunity to have the discussion, negotiate a fair plan or agreement and move forward with it before Mercury retrograde. If something like this is pending for you, finish it and resolve by the end of the weekend. Otherwise know that your next best timing will be after October 25th. A short void of course Moon from 8:39 am to 10:29 am EDT is followed by Scorpio Moon until Sunday at 6:50 pm. Decisions take hold. The Moon and Neptune align for strong intuition, psychic hits, strong impressions, feelings and dreams. Today's color is indigo blue.

Saturday: Mercury in Scorpio

The Scorpio Moon is joined by Mercury at 6:39 pm EDT. Mercury in Scorpio is an investigator, researcher, and mystery writer. Interesting information surfaces and will be up for discussion in the weeks ahead, particularly since Mercury will be retrograde in a few days and we'll revisit these degrees of Mercury. When Mercury changes signs, perspective shifts. You may change your mind or be impacted as someone else sees a situation with different eyes now. Things are quite impermanent at this point so close to the retrograde, so patience helps. The Moon aligns with Pluto, recently direct in Capricorn. Deep and long held feelings come up. This is more about internally resolving something for yourself. Introspection is likely and you might even feel alone in a crowd.  Create some time for yourself today or tonight. We may need to be tolerant and put a shield on out there in the world. Today's color is black.

Sunday: Scorpio to Sagittarius Moon

Scorpio Moon meets Saturn and lines up with Venus in Virgo. Get a handle on relationship issues. Keep a good boundary even while being forgiving or more tolerant of someone.  There's a tendency to make decisions though with Mercury so close to retrograde it's best to build in the right to change your mind or alter things in a month. It's a good day to organize, prioritize, and attend to personal business even if that's just about cleaning your room or workspace. Creativity is stimulated, though Saturn's rules may be something you have to consider.  Take a plan and improvise with more color, detail, and heart. The void of course Moon is relatively short, from 4:31to 5:56 pm EDT. Tonight can be fun & competitive, though some will make it a study night under Sag Moon, sign of higher learning. Today's color is purple.

September 15th to 21st, 2014

Monday: Gemini Moon

The Moon interacts with the Sun, Mercury, Uranus, Jupiter and Venus. When the Moon is in Gemini, choose your words carefully both spoken and written. There's plenty to be discussed and business to be done. Jupiter in Leo encourages connecting with people who share your values or agenda. Mercury in Libra adds to this networking and negotiating influence.  Write a plan for marketing or get into the details of an event. Writing is generally favored for you Zodiac Zone author/readers! Decision making may not be easy though. Things happen fast and there's an unexpected element as Uranus in Aries makes contact with the Moon, changing situations and minds rapidly. Void of course Moon starts at 10:06 pm for study breaks and social calls. Today's color is blue.

Tuesday: Cancer Moon

Early hours can be confusing or chaotic as the Gemini Moon is void of course and our minds race and become preoccupied. Check your calendar and avoid spacing on an appointment or meeting. Cancer Moon moves in at 11:24 am EDT and harmonizes with Neptune in Pisces. Conservative business with a creative aspect is favored. Be resourceful and sensitive to a client's wish list.  At home and with family, it's a cooking, gardening, cleaning and constructive time. Whip up a nice dinner or dessert to share! Get the garden ready for fall or for next spring. Fishing and farming are highlighted on the almanac calendar. That can be extended to other activities that create comfort and abundance! Today's color is light blue. 

Wednesday: Cancer Moon

Saturn in Scorpio requests, if not demands, action on major projects or decisions this week. Take responsibility and dig into tasks today. Learn or train others through experience and get beyond the instructions and into how things operate. Respect will be earned, not freely gifted. Show you care and can handle what needs taking care of. Pluto and Uranus are square to the Moon, and things pile up, mostly in the mind. Today and tomorrow's business could feel a bit overwhelming and include recurring patterns. The good news is Venus in harmony with the Moon is romantic for a date after the work day. Venus n Virgo also helps with order and attention  to detail and that agrees with Mars and Saturn's influences today and tomorrow. Wear green. 

Thursday: Cancer to Leo Moon

Yesterday's forecast holds true for another several hours. Saturn seeks permanence and meaningful interactions. Some of this may relate to family and elders. Put the wraps on something or find a long term solution once and for all, and with care.  Mercury in Libra emphasizes the importance of fairness and balance, with family members, in legal matters, and with business of all kinds. There may be a lot to negotiate and work through, but the Moon and Sun in harmony inspire confidence and decisions and careful consideration. Leave a little room for adjustment or improvement later on. It's great to get things handled and in writing before Mercury retrograde dominates October.  The Moon is v.o.c. from 2:38 to 11:10 pm. Use those hours to unwind or do routine things. At 11:10 pm EDT the Moon moves to optimistic, energetic Leo. Today's color is purple.

Friday: Leo Moon

The Leo Moon in tandem with Mars make this a day for adventure and activity. The Moon in the sign of children with Mars in Sagittarius indicates kids will need to be happily engaged  in learning or play or they're more likely to act out today. Honesty is a significant theme. Leo Moon needs loyalty and trust. Mars in Sagittarius instigates the truth. Anything less could create a permanent rift between friends or partners. Leo is a fixed sign and the Moon, our emotions. Take off for a fun, different scene today or tomorrow. Wear red.

Saturday: Leo Moon

Leo Moon and Jupiter meet, and the Moon forms a harmonious trine to Uranus in Aries. This is the building of a wave that breaks on the 25th, a very interesting and dynamic day as Jupiter trines Uranus. Jupiter and Uranus are like a big fireworks display, and breakthroughs, innovative plans, and big announcements are some of the possible highlights of the last third of the month. If something very good and seemingly sudden happens today, follow the lead. The more it involves recreating and growing something in your life, the more likely it is activity of these two planets. Whatever you do today, build in time to play and enjoy. Allow yourself to be surprised and believe in what's good, bountiful, and expansive. Brighten the dark spots with positivity, and with the Moon squaring Saturn, try not to be so stubborn, you miss the point or the opportunity. Often we must give up a stubborn ideal or idea to let something else better take hold. Today's color is gold.

Sunday: Virgo Moon

From 12:33 am to 11:54 am EDT the Moon is v.o.c in Leo. This is fine for pleasure and hanging out, and less favorable for big decisions or purchases.  The Moon then moves to Virgo for the two days preceding New Moon in Libra, Wednesday. This is a time of reconsidering and revising plans.  Put energy toward organizing and also managing responsibilities and agreements in relationships as Venus in Virgo harmonizes with Saturn in Scorpio. This may not be the fun stuff of love and romance, but it IS the glue that holds things together and contributes to smooth days and nights together. Sort out the things that irritate you by forming new plans for day to day life or shared work. Mars and Neptune contribute to creative tension from which great things can be born. Be careful in your travels of anything that could be deceptive. Walk with no illusions as this week begins. Virgo Moon is practical and close to the earth. Today's color is navy blue.

September 8th (Full Moon in Pisces) to September 14th, 2014

Monday: Full Moon in Pisces

The Moon is full at 9:38 pm EDT. Venus and the Sun oppose the Moon from Virgo while Neptune & Moon light up Pisces and Pluto is in harmony from Capricorn. Let's explore some ideas and areas of those heavenly bodies for insight! Neptune has a strong influence and is romantic and artistic. The god of the sea is Neptune, and he's also known to create illusions around things. The romance and imagination is beautiful when it's real and true. If you have doubts or tugs of intuition that something, or more likely someone, is not being real with you, ask questions, take care of your own interests, and be smart. Venus in Virgo also puts the lens of love and relationship on during this Full Moon. Step back and look realistically at boundaries and what's good for you. This Full Moon is highly emotional and sensitive and I see that as beneficial because you will be able to feel your way through, use your instincts, ask for the intuition of trusted friends or "counselors". Have an intuitive reading, meditate, and ask whatever oracle or spirits you invoke for guidance. Include the voice of nature which will be powerful now too, and visit a favorite spot during this Harvest Moon. Your answer or what you need to say may just appear in thought or in physical form! Pluto is about facing things deep within, and in harmony with the Pisces Moon, Pluto says don't be afraid. Let the Full Moon light up dark places since once light reflects there, they lose the power to hold you back. Expect to feel, release what you can, be lighter, support each other from a true place, and engage your creative self! This could be renamed the Cathartic Moon. Today's color is white.

Tuesday: Pisces to Aries Moon

The Pisces Moon is still Full and with the influence of Scorpio based Saturn and Mars, it's serious business and no excuses. Get things in order, resolve, make a solid decision, and without banning emotions, keep them in check. Saturn is authorities, elders, and also may relate to health. Mars activates and confronts.  Face things rather than shy away. Hold your ground if it comes from an honest place. If you're in a position of authority, you may deal with sensitive issues or employees. Most of this has come due at Full Moon time for a reason. Think of the phrase once and for all. From 3:10 to 7:33 pm EDT, the Moon is void of course waiting to jump to Aries. In Aries, courage and resilience come from the reserves. You may need both and a strong voice too as Mercury and Pluto square. The revelations of this Full Moon may come in it's wake. Tonight especially, people will speak their truth and some of it may not been pretty or anticipated.  The catharsis of the Full Moon continues.  Today's color is gold.

Wednesday: Aries Moon, Venus opposite Neptune

A whirl of astrological energy as Venus opposes Neptune picking up where the Pisces Moon left off (if it did!), and romance is in the air. Ideally, relationships work out for the best because you belong together, not because you're lured back in by mere charm or need. It's all about intentions. This can be quite the romantic day or evening if the conditions are right. Mercury, meanwhile, aligns with Jupiter in Libra/Leo, and is expressive and newsworthy. People around you may make announcements especially about growth or expansion  in their lives.  It's a good time to meet potential collaborators and people who can back you up or become partners in your endeavors. The Moon is also in harmony with Jupiter, and Aries, Leo and Libra may feel quite lucky! At 8:58 pm void of course Moon begins and lasts for most of tomorrow. Today's color is red.

Thursday: Void Moon, Sun trine Saturn

The void of course Moon is a listening, waiting, routine time where new action on things might be wasted since a shift will occur in hours.  If you clean and sort things, have a system so you can find or remember later! The Sun sextile to Saturn makes it difficult to put a decision off though, if one is pending.  These two in Virgo and Scorpio practically insist that plans and goals are in motion asap. Order is a key word for the day, and you can take that either way in terms of meaning! The Moon will move to Taurus tonight, and that may be the time to commit to a goal, a plan or a person, if you can wait out the void of course hours successfully. Taurus Moon begins at 9:17 pm. Today's color is green.

Friday: Taurus Moon

The Moon squares Jupiter in Leo. Get out of a stuck place and brighten your life. This might be a day to give to yourself more. Another way to align with this square is to listen and be less fixed in your ideas or ways. Consider how you could open up options. It's a career day for Leo and a home and family influence for Taurus. Taurus Moon is in harmony with Venus in Virgo, Pluto in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces. This is positive for both accomplishing and enjoying people and relationships, and includes doing creative things that involve physical effort, like building, making, yoga, dancing, and landscaping or gardening.  Taking action makes us feel good, generally. It's a great date night, especially for Capricorn, Virgo, Taurus and Scorpio. Today's color
is pink.

Saturday: Mars in Sagittarius, Mercury opposite Uranus

The Taurus Moon is void of course from 9:31 am until Sunday at 2:26 am. Time to take it easy and slow. Mercury opposite Uranus can mean lots of last minute changes, things or appear who appear unexpectedly, and strange or sudden news. Try to find your calm, cool, collected zone early and maintain it. It's not a good day to make big spending decisions. Mars moves to Sagittarius, a place of movement and change, at 5:57 pm EDT for a 6 week stay. Mars encourages us to learn from experience now. Get involved, go new places, work the body and mind both.  At the same time, use some caution to avoid injury, especially to the hips, and all the surrounding muscles, which are ruled by Sagittarius.  Wear appropriate shoes. Maybe tomorrow is a hiking boot or sneaker shopping day. Today's color is red.

Sunday: Gemini Moon, Mercury trine Pluto

At 2:26 am EDT, the Moon moves to Gemini, opposes Mars newly n Sagittarius and squares Pluto hours later.  Confrontations during the opposition could be extra challenging and get out of hand easily. With this action in Gemini and Sagittarius. people will say things they don't really mean and go far in trying to prove a point. Philosophical differences will be obvious today, but the message and real truth may not be clear at all. Avoid an argument. Trust your instinct over anyone's words. Neptune can further confuse, from Pisces. Mercury is in harmony with Pluto, in Virgo and Capricorn. That will help keep things real and can involve divulging important information. Talk with people you trust who can help you sort things out and maybe get a lead you need as well. It's a good day for writing and studies. Today's color is yellow.
