Reaching out for help finding images for this blog and my Facebook page has been extremely exciting and very satisfying.

Thank you so much to all who have offered your incredibly beautiful images; photographs, paintings, collages, and more! The creativity, talent, and generosity I have received has truly blown my mind. LOVE!

I am delighted with the new look of my page and blog! Knowing that all of you are making it happen has felt like an amazing support! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

On another topic, many of you have reached out expressing concern and care around the health difficulties that my partner has recently faced. Again, thank you for your kindness. Brenda is recovering well with lots of help from her cardiac therapy, friends, family, and rest.

We still face many challenges moving forward and yet are feeling strong and confident. Thank you all so much for your kind words and support.

Many of you have also reached and made appointments for consultations with me. It is such a delight to work with each of you to help you understand and love yourselves more profoundly. I am deeply grateful for the work I’ve been given in this world to do; it is truly an honor.

I suspect that last week was a bit of a challenge for many of you. With so much Neptune energy, our sensitivity level has been extreme as well as a deep lack of clarity.

Even as we were adjusting to the retrograde motion of Mercury, we also had to deal with the lack of clarity and the potential deep suffering of Neptune. The good news is that this week is simpler with a good deal more clarity!

The Sagittarius Full Moon on Tuesday has the potential to pull us out of whatever doldrums we have been stuck in over the past few weeks. It is time to explore the bigger picture; to look outside ourselves and enjoy the view from above.

Travel, explore, and see the world from a perspective you have never imagined before. The world is wider and deeper and more expansive than any of us can imagine.

This week, work to enlarge your view, see beyond the boundaries that have kept you stuck. It is time to explore and grow.




Monday, June 1, 2015:

Getting out of bed on the right foot Monday morning will make all the difference to how your entire week unfolds.

At 7:00 AM EDT, the Moon trine Venus followed by the Moon VOC* until she enters Sagittarius at 2:38 PM EDT. If you are in a partnership, please make sure you do not leave the house without making a strong, loving connection with your partner.

If you are single, put that same energy and attention into creating something beautiful or spending time on a creative project. This could be as simple as making sure all the dishes are clean and the counters wiped down before you leave the house, making the bad and putting flowers on the nightstand. When you get home in the evening, you will see what a difference these tiny things make.

This is a day to notice the beauty and love that surrounds you and the beauty and love you create in your environment. Consider how you bring beauty to the lives of others.

At 2:38 PM EDT, the Moon enters Sagittarius and our hearts follow; seeking exploration, encountering new views and perspectives of reality.

Monday will be a great evening to brainstorm and dream about travel or a particular study you would like to undertake. Don’t make any hard fast convictions on the issue, as Mercury is still retrograde. However, now is a good time to explore the ideas in your mind with friends, a partner, or on your own. This may be a good start to a much easier week.



Tuesday, June 2, 2015:

On Tuesday at 12:19 PM EDT, we have the Full Moon in Sagittarius. Take a moment to contemplate how far your life has expanded over the past several months… and even over the last two weeks.

Think back as recently as March before the final Uranus and Pluto squares which pushed all of our lives into hyper-drive. How much can a life change over the course of three or four months? Look at your own life and look at the lives of those around you.

The Sagittarius Full Moon brings clarity to a path that was totally obscured less than a week ago. This does not mean the difficulties are all behind us. It does mean that if we open our eyes fully, we are able to see the biggest picture available. We know where we are on-track and where we need to make adjustments.

We are likely to be in a better place than we know. Explore, expand, travel; open your heart! The Sagittarius Full Moon allows us to see the full perspective from the highest point. As we explore the highest and broadest perspective, we understand what is necessary and what is not. We are ready to release as we open to the important work ahead.

We must support each other with optimism, vitality, and the best of intentions! At this Full Moon, you will want to embrace your free spirit, freedom, and opportunities for joy and adventure. Make sure you have adventures scheduled on your calendar. There is no time like the present to seek joy.

Wednesday, June 3, 2015:

Tuesday’s Full Moon engendered a great deal of positive excitement and energy. I hope you were able to roll with the circumstances and love your life. Wednesday is a very simple day, a day for recuperation, meditation, and rest.

Following a sextile to Uranus at 1:58 AM EDT, the Moon is VOC* until she enters Capricorn at 8:51 PM EDT. This gives us a very long day to recuperate.

Make the most of it! Enjoy it! Truly, it is a gift.

Whatever you are doing today, whatever has to be done, please understand that there will not be any great result from it! When the Moon is VOC*, we hold steady in the energy of the final aspect, in this case the sextile to Uranus. That gives the whole day a quirky feel. Even as we recuperate and rest, our interest is in the extraordinary; we seek an unusual perspective.

As we rest in contemplation and renewal, we embrace the future as we imagine it can be! These thoughts, these interests expand our awareness to accept all the unusual excitement of the future. This is a day for no expectations of yourself or others; rest, rejuvenate, and expand your vision.



Thursday, June 4, 2015:

Thursday brings us a very serious day. This is the day for hard work, a day that you can get a great deal accomplished.

Whereas Wednesday was best with no expectations, Thursday is a good day to have high expectations of yourself and others! If you prepare properly and focus yourself adequately, this is a day that you could get more done than in the entire rest of the week combined.

Go ahead; put your nose to the grindstone! Work hard, embrace a work ethic of great magnitude. Don’t let anything distract you.

This is not a day for socializing. This is a time to work in a solitary pursuit.

Teamwork is not a great idea. This is a day to work on your own, depending on your own effort and drive. Put in the effort and the focus; you will be glad you did.

If you utilize this day properly, you will sleep well Thursday night and feel great about your accomplishments.

Without the work, effort, and accomplishment this could be an unhappy, cranky, or depressing day. Don’t let that happen. It is not necessary.


MAKE LOVE, PLAY, DANCE                       

Friday, June 5, 2015:

Okay! Here we go again with another full day of the Moon VOC*! Indeed, the Moon goes VOC*at 6:54 AM EDT following a square to Uranus and will not enter Aquarius until Saturday in the early morning. The Capricorn Moon is still with us throughout the day. If we know how to manage this, we can still accomplish a great deal.

Please remember, it is not that we cannot get anything done, it is that nothing of value will result from what we do. Therefore, mundane tasks can still be accomplished and help propel forward the work ethic of Thursday.

You don’t want to work on a project that requires a great outcome but you certainly could organize and file paperwork, or accomplish any kind of maintenance for cleaning projects.

Venus enters Leo at 11:32 AM EDT! This will herald in an appreciation for these sunny days in the warm summer. The Sun will not enter Leo for several months but now Venus gives us a taste of the warmth and splendor of the Sun (which rules Leo). Embrace this shift in energy.

Venus represents our relationships and what we value. Have you noticed yourself being critical and overly sensitive while Venus was moving through Virgo? Warmth returns and our relationships are able to become more playful and lighthearted! This is very good news.

Venus goes retrograde starting June 25th and Venus will remain retrograde until mid-July 2016. We will discuss Venus retrograde as we get closer to the time. For now, enjoy the playfulness of Venus in Leo!

When was the last time you acted in a play or were on stage doing something you love with an audience? Take this time to learn to play in whatever way that appeals to you. Think about it and make it a priority. Fun, enjoyment, and play are crucial elements for our health and happiness.

Mars is sextile Jupiter at 7:37 PM EDT allowing that playful energy some physical expression. This evening play should be physical! Go out dancing or make love with expansive passion and creativity. What a lovely Friday night! <3

Saturday, June 6, 2015:

We wake up Saturday morning to the Moon in Aquarius. This is certainly an opportunity for a quirky and fun day. I hope you have planned something with family or friends. Here in Vermont, summer is short and we must enjoy these weekends to the fullest.

This would be a great day for a wedding or party!

Venus is trine Saturn at 2:22 AM EDT; this colors the entire day with love, stability, and the value of beauty.

Make the effort and you will be able to tap into deep enjoyment of beauty. We have felt a sense of pleasure in the very act of living; we are able to stand back and hold ourselves steady as we see the love and beauty available to us in this world.

In November 2014, we began a new cycle of stabilizing relationship or solidifying something of beauty. Now, we are at the disseminating phase of that cycle. We are able to fully see, experience, and show others what we have learned and what beauty has come into our lives throughout the course of the cycle.

We are able to teach others what we have learned about life, love, and beauty. Each one of us has a unique and valuable experience; share what you know.



Sunday, June 7, 2015:

Sunday is very much reflection of Saturday. This is indeed an exceptional weekend.

Please make this day exciting, fun, and enjoyable!

Don’t stay home unless your home is a place of grand enjoyment. Don’t try to make this a work weekend.

This is the weekend to go to the beach, go camping, go to the city for play, go dancing, go to clubs and meet new people.

I’m not to spend anymore time writing about it; there is fun to be had!!


This week: The VOC* Moon!

VOC* (void of course) refers to the period of time between the final aspect that the Moon makes while in one sign until she enters the next sign. This can consist of several minutes or many hours. These periods are best handled with little expectation of accomplishment. These times are ideally suited for rest and contemplation.

Block off these times in your schedule and avoid making significant decisions or working on important projects during these times. During VOC* Moon, focus on routine tasks. You will be surprised at how this one change will smooth the edges of your life!

Do you have questions about what is appropriate to do or not do during the VOC* moon? A simple way to think about it is to ask a simple question: Do I hope that this activity will amount to something? If the activity does not need to amount to anything, go ahead with it!

If you have an expectation or desire that this action is going to amount to something, do not do it while the Moon is VOC*. Think about the time you bought a book you were certain you were going to love and you never could finish it! Think about the time you bought the perfect article of clothing that you ended up never wearing. That is the Moon VOC*!

Monday, June 1, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Scorpio) following a trine to Venus at 7:00 AM EDT, until she enters Sagittarius at 2:38 PM EDT.

Wednesday, June 3, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Sagittarius) following a trine to Uranus at 1:58 AM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 8:51 PM EDT.

Friday, June 5, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Capricorn) following a square to Uranus at 6:54 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 1:02 AM EDT on Saturday, June 6, 2015.

Sunday, June 7, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Aquarius) following a sextile to Uranus at 10:30 AM EDT until she enters Pisces early Monday morning.

* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.

The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

Comments are closed.

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.
