I had given up on being able to make my long-time desired move to Maine a reality. For many reasons housing is a problem everywhere and so many rentals are now Airbnbs. With all the complications in today’s world, the move I wanted to make seemed an impossibility.

When I gave up and resigned myself to staying put suddenly an apartment was presented. A friend of a friend had a friend whose neighbor was moving out!  The landlord was happy to not have to search through applications and it all came together at a lightning-fast speed. Thank god for true friends of true friends.

Ahh, Uranus! I should have known it would come in a flash just as I had given up!

Transiting Uranus is very active in my chart right now, being in a major challenging aspect to the rulers of my 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th 7th, 8th, 10th, and 12th houses. So, here we go. It helps to reflect on the profound changes that occurred the last two times Uranus impacted my stellium this way.

Approximately every 20 years I go through a similar time. It is invigorating, exciting, and stressful.

Wish me luck, come help pack if you are nearby, and tell me about your Uranus transits!

The week begins with the Moon in Gemini. This is a day to fully engage your intellect and your voice. Your mind is busy as you explore and share ideas and have conversations with others. You want to cover a variety of topics with a rather light hand. The Gemini Moon is light-hearted and is not generally interested in deep, profound, or difficult topics.

At 6:28 PM ET, Mars sextile Saturn. Together Mars and Saturn can accomplish a great deal. With each currently in the sign of their domicile, they are both very strong and capable at this time.

In early April 2022, Mars and Saturn joined together, beginning a two-year cycle of energizing structure and maturity in your life. Today we come to the opening sextile aspect between them. Look for opportunities to stabilize your physical energy and determination. Anticipate a great deal of patience today. You know you are playing the long game in whatever project this cycle signifies for you personally. You probably feel clear, stable, responsible, and serious about the actions that are necessary.

Mars is in Aries and Saturn is in Aquarius. Look to the houses that hold these signs in your natal chart to understand more about how this aspect impacts you.



Tuesday, June 28, 2022

Today is very busy astrologically. The Moon enters Cancer at 7:54 AM ET and reaches the New Moon at 10:53 PM ET. When the Moon is in this cardinal water sign our focus turns to familial relationships and domestic concerns.

At each New Moon, the position of the Moon is between the Earth and the Sun. At this position, it shows no reflected light. The idea of what is coming, of what is possible is felt in an intuitive and subjective manner. The seed that is planted germinates in the dark. The metaphorical seed you plant reflects a fierce desire to protect love, motherhood, women, and self-determination in love. You will receive a separate post regarding this important New Moon.

In the wee hours of the morning, Neptune stationed Retrograde after being in direct motion since December 2021. Neptune is direct for half of each year and retrograde for half of each year. While retrograde Neptun allows you to assimilate the progress you have made in your spiritual and intuitive growth. This may also refer to other Neptune issues including universal suffering and issues of addiction. Pay attention to illusions being stripped away and the illumination of vision and dreams.

At 11:51 PM ET, Venus sextile Jupiter encourages the expansion of love and social cohesion. This will impact today and tomorrow and simply suggests positive and optimistic connections. This is also a good time for financial transactions. Enjoy this one.



Wednesday, June 29, 2022

The Moon continues through the strong cardinal Water sign of Cancer today. Your emotions are in high relief and can not be ignored. You have a powerful need to be in the company of those you love or that illicit a sense of emotional belonging. This may keep you focused on love, family, and domestic issues.

At 7:49 PM ET, the Moon forms a sextile aspect to Uranus. This brings forth opportunities to put your deeply protective loving emotions to work for a collective purpose. If you experience anxiety, look for possibilities to put that anxiety to work for a collective purpose. Watch and that possibility will reveal itself.

Although the Moon is very much at home in Cancer due to its rulership of this sign, that does not translate to it being always an easy time. This will be a time of deep sensitivity and even moodiness. The best use of this time is to focus on domestic activities, understanding your motivations, and connecting with those you love. When the Moon is in Cancer we are drawn to places of safety and people who deeply care for us. You may feel more vulnerable than usual and can become defensive if old buttons are pushed. Practice patience and loving-kindness toward others. Indulge in what brings comfort and protection to your world today.



Thursday, June 30, 2022

The Moon continues through Cancer for the bulk of today. Pay attention to the shifting emotional currents that are boiling beneath your feet. You may wish you could curl up and be left alone to tend to your vulnerable heart. The next best thing is to spend time with your closest family (biological or chosen) members.

You have a strong need to nurture and be nurtured today. Put your needs first, otherwise, you will have nothing to give. Self-care is important this morning as it will help you with the afternoon challenges. These challenges may appear as pushback and power dynamics from others.

The Moon squares Mars at 2:17 PM ET and opposes Pluto at 4:14 PM ET. Don’t get embroiled in a battle that is not necessary. Think of the transits the Moon makes as thunderclouds that pass quickly on a summer afternoon.

At 8:39 PM ET the Moon enters the fixed fire sign of Leo.  Leo is a very personal self-oriented sign. With the Moon in Leo over the next few days you will seek a greater level of attention and dramatic expression.

With the Moon in Leo, shower your friends and loved ones with warmth and generosity. If you are on your own, shower yourself with warmth, generosity, and expressions of self-love. Leo loves gifts, so don’t scrimp on any expressions of appreciation.

Leo is ruled by the Sun and offers the potential for enthusiasm and optimism. All else being equal the Leo Moon offers the opportunity to let the fun-loving child within us come alive and play.

However, today, all things are not equal! A square aspect is building throughout the day between Mars and Pluto. This suggests a powerful impact for several days. Mars and Pluto bring the most challenging energies of the solar system into play. Expect tremendous drive and determination pushing against power and influence beyond your control. You will want to rail against powers that trigger deep frustration and anger. You may sense that the world is dangerous and forces are pushing you into a corner.

This is a hard one, but one that will help you determine the best action to take moving forward. The powers pushing against you feel overwhelming. Anger is hot and potentially dangerous. Be careful, maintain personal integrity, and uncover hidden dynamics or expose secrets that vindicate your position. Avoid pushing too hard, as you can do no good if you burn yourself out.

Look to the houses in your natal chart that hold Aries and Capricorn to get an idea of where you personally feel this anger and frustration building.



Saturday, July 2, 2022

While the Moon passes through Leo is a good time for opulent romantic gestures and creative activities. We long to fulfill grand and dramatic desires. It is important not to let petty or unimportant ego issues get in the way of self-expression and joy. Step onto the stage of your life and express what makes you special and unique.

At 6:38 AM ET, Mercury forms a lovely trine aspect to Saturn bringing us to a serious frame of mind. We can get intellectual projects done easily. This is a great time for anything that requires mental accuracy and analysis. You are able to bring logic and organization to whatever you put your mind to.

This lovely support from Saturn is somewhat undermined by the square aspect from Mercury to Neptune at 4:52 PM ET. The organization and practicality of your thinking must take your intuition into account. This is an awkward combination that takes astute mental gymnastics to work with well. It will help if your mental projects are motivated by self-awareness and compassion.

AT 8:31 AM ET the Moon slips into Virgo, the mutable earth sign best known for its meticulous attention to detail.

With the Moon in Virgo, focus on practical efforts necessary for positive change. Virgo sees potential in all things and wants to make any changes necessary to reach that potential. This is a time to analyze, refine, and perfect whatever catches your attention. Make lists and pin down your plans with others. Weed your garden, work on your schedule, or catch up on housework are all good ways to use this time.

When the Moon makes its monthly journey through Virgo attention turns to practical matters. We may find ourselves cleaning, organizing, and making detailed lists and plans. We are driven to solve problems, help others, and make order out of chaos. We are likely to be aware of our physical health and think about the changes we need to make to our diet or exercise routine. Tending to details in all things is what brings gratification and personal satisfaction. Make the most of the time that the Moon moves through Virgo as you can get a lot accomplished.


In these weekly reports, I explore 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 give rise to fleeting moods. The aspects under consideration are conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions. The planets I work with are the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
