A Hot Aries Full Moon

Moon conjuncts Jupiter & Uranus, then moves into Aries. A Full Aries Moon opposing our Beautiful Hot Sun, having just slipped into Libra! We now open our hearts anew and find plenty of space for a new sense of where we are in our lives. Places in your life where, in the past, you have had faith and hope have now returned! This summer was tough on all these issues, for all of us, but hope now returns. We remember and reconnect with our belief from the past and are ready to return with new joy.

Today brings a Full Moon in Aries. This is very powerful the Moon reaches Fullness just as she enters Aries, symbolizing the very birth of Fire! We can see change arrive with a blast of energy, fast and furious! Gather Courage to move forward without hesitation.

Happy Equinox! The Sun is now in Libra for a month of attention to relationships, diplomacy and compromise. Venus and Mars, the planets of love, sexuality and relationships, are still moving through Scorpio, reminding us to consider the source of our creativity, body energy and personal power.

Your sexual energy is worthy of deep care and attention during this time. Pay attention to your needs and the needs of those you care for.

Equinox and Full Moon! Shift of Season!


A seasonal shift (Sun moves into Libra – the Equinox – 11:02PM EDT) followed almost immediately (5:17AM, tomorrow) by the Full Moon at the first degree of Aries!

The season we have just passed through has demanded many changes for us individually and collectively. It is time, now, to set our feet firmly in our chosen direction, being fully conscious as to what direction that is.
Look back at your life in June. Doesn’t it seem like a different world altogether? Where have you managed to plant yourself since then? Where will you be at the end of this season if you stay on this path? What do you need to change?
Now is a moment in time to look clearly at your aspirations. Firm up the places that support your healthiest vision and find the courage (Moon in Aries) to leap onto another path at the places that are leading you in directions that are not the best for your larger community and yourself.



Today is a powerful day, in it’s own right, as we build to an amazing Full Moon on Thursday!

Keep your eyes open for a radical amazing experience. Don’t let the soft dreaminess of the Pisces Moon keep you from looking straight in the eye of the expansive intensity of experience that is right outside your door!
Perhaps a new unusual person appears in your life, your eyes open to what has been there all along, or you are finally able to see the extent of transformation that has occurred in yourself or those around you. There is likely an internal buzz deep inside your mind/body for the next few days as the Sun opposes Jupiter and Uranus – expanding and intensifying our experience.

Expect the Unexpected today with Moon in eccentric,
innovative Aquarius.

Sometimes it is difficult to accept that the paths of our lives (where we may wish for stability) move this way and that, sometimes with little rhyme or reason.
Today is a great day to bring curiosity to the process. Our Spirituality, Mysticism and Religious beliefs are subject to intensification and the most unusual changes. Do not expect your long held beliefs to remain solid.
Allow for new ideas to emerge.

Depth & Complications

Many of my contemporaries on Facebook have their relationship status listed as “It’s Complicated”. There was a popular movie, recently, with that as it’s title as well, and although I didn’t see the movie, my understanding is that the title refers to the complications of romantic Relationships.

It is difficult to imagine a relationship, without complication. We find our individual lives to be so complicated that the idea of connecting with others brings the potential for complications to great heights!

How much of that complication is created in our own minds? Perhaps we need these complications to add excitement, to feel in control or maybe it is simply habit?

There is nothing complicated about love. Love occurs simply, in a simple moment of time.
It is organic – motion – energy.

Complications occur when we stop focusing on simple clean energies in current time. We become preoccupied with expectations, hopes, dreams, disappointment and fear. We get pulled into a story line so strong and deep in our minds that we believe it is real. The Relationship becomes a burden.
We are not often aware of the many subtle ways we get pulled into our own stories as though they were real.

Next month (October 8) Venus stations (stops) at 13 degrees Scorpio, and turns retrograde, something that occurs regularly, approximately every 18 months. Venus will remain retrograde until November 18th, when it will move direct at 27 Libra.

Venus symbolizes love, relationships, your personal values & where you find beauty, Symbolically, Venus embodies your ideal image of woman, the female principle… whatever that means to you.

If you follow, and pay attention to, the retrograde cycle of Venus (the way many people do with Mercury’s retrograde cycle) it is a great opportunity to learn about your own internal image of the female principle, how you relate to this image, how it affects your life and if there are ways to improve how this internal image supports your life.

We all have our expectations and ideals of Relationships (love) and Personal Resources (money) – two main territories of Venus. Venus Retrograde offers us the opportunity to learn to better understand what these needs are and if we are getting them fed in a way that works for the advancement of our personal life path and the larger path of our fellow humans.

Perhaps less complication would create an environment that could better support all of us. Maybe we, as humans, are ready to go the depth that Scorpio asks of us. Not the painful, overwhelming complications of drama and scheduling but the real depth of pure transformational energy.

Are you at a crossroad in your life? Are your circumstances other than what you expected?

We can meet for an individual consultations (Burlington, Vermont), by telephone, or on SKYPE!

Life Transitions Require New Perspectives!

It is my goal to empower you in the exploration of the past, present and future of your life.

Let's talk. There is so much to learn and understand.
