Without the proverbial crystal ball, there are many questions that clients ask that I simply can not answer. There is not a crystal ball or an astrologer on the planet that has YOUR answers for you. Your true answers come from within, your inner soul work.

An astrologer can guide you, she can show you where to look for clues, she can help you explore the terrain of your path and see the long view. She can help you explore the potential results of different choices.

As I work with your charts, my job is to open for you a cosmic perspective. I will bring your attention to specific times in the past that reflect steps that have led you to where you find yourself. My job is to help you make connections between the past, the present, and the future.

The circumstances you are currently dealing with have their roots in past choices and decisions. As you reflect upon certain pivotal times in the past, your choices and the results of them will help you to understand the best choices for today.

We learn from past mistakes and successes on how to best move forward in the present.

Throughout the first two-thirds of 2020, we all had to do a serious and potentially difficult re-evaluation of our values, both individually and collectively. Venus’ retrograde between May 13, 2020 – June 25, 2020 was a rich time for all of us in self understanding. Individually and culturally we have had to consider what is of most value to our lives. American culture has taught us to value love, money, and possessions above all else.

Hopefully, on the other side of the first two-thirds of 2020, we are more aware and have a renewed understanding of what is of greatest value to us. Your values are probably quite different now than they were at the start of 2020.

For the final third of 2020, (with Mars in Aries retrograde from September 9 – November 13) we are required to contemplate, understand, and re-evaluate how we use and misuse the powerful energies of strength, force, determination, and anger. We all have the planet Mars and the sign of Aries in particular areas of our charts. Most of us are in some sort of a major (internal or external) battle right now. 2020!

From talking with thousands of clients and my personal experience, we must be brutally honest in facing the reality of our motivations. While Mars is retrograde we must get clear and look deeply into our ego motivations. It is easy to hide from the tough reality of our biggest ego struggles.

The truth is always within the self. A good astrologer will help you to see the bread crumbs that your soul has left along the path of time. With these clues and bread crumbs to guide you, let your inner knowing, the softer understanding of soul direct you forward.

Deep soul work seldom feeds the Ego. Follow the path of the soul. Go inward for your answers, follow the breadcrumbs of truth, and listen to the softer voice.

Please keep in mind that transits to your natal planets can override these more universal ones. A consultation will help you understand your personal circumstances. 


A SOLID DAY OF PLEASURE – Monday, September 7, 2020

The week begins with a rather simple, easy, and welcome day. As the Moon moves through Taurus she makes pleasant aspects to the Sun, Jupiter, and Neptune. Take advantage of this opportunity to catch your breath and feel good without many complications.

Spend the day in simple endeavors that create or focus on physical pleasures. Get or give a massage, cook, or bake for those you love, harvest your garden, or build a structure of some kind. Plan a special meal with loved ones focusing on new foods that will delight the senses.

Creating beauty in your environment and bringing beauty and pleasure to others will make this a solid day of pleasure to enjoy.


REMEMBER BOARD GAMES – Tuesday, September 8, 2020

The Moon begins the day in steadfast, charming Taurus. As you create beauty or sweet connections with others your emotions stabilize. You may feel more hopeful and supported by the world around you than you have in recent days.

The Moon travels without contact with other planets for the bulk of the day. This does not mean that nothing happens but that nothing significant will likely result from whatever happens. If you want someone to know something but you don’t want that information to create a long term issue, today would be a good day to extend that communication.

At 5:28 PM EDT, the Moon enters Gemini bringing you to an evening for light talk and easy connections. Plan to linger at the dinner table for talk or board games (I’m not sure if folks do that anymore). Show your curiosity regarding how those around you view a situation or circumstance.

***The Taurus Moon is void-of-course from 8:47 AM EDT until she enters Gemini at 5:28 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.


CONFIDENCE, OPPORTUNITY, AND A CHANGE OF DIRECTION – Wednesday, September 9, 2020

At 12:03 PM EDT, the Sun forms a flowing trine aspect to Jupiter. This reflects a positive day when you are able to tap into a sense of optimism, enthusiasm, and self-confidence. You may feel like sitting on your laurels today and simply allowing pleasure to envelop you. However, don’t be lazy. If an opportunity arrives, happily accept.

Even with that ‘feel good’ transit, Mars stations retrograde today and we enter the most challenging part of 2020. Mars will remain retrograde until November 13, 2020. Here in the US, with the national elections at hand, we don’t need astrology to know that we are heading into an extremely combative time.

While Mars is retrograde we must (individually and culturally) look back at how we have used energies of strength, courage, force, determination, and anger in the past. These ingrainded patterns of behavior must now be grappled with and reevaluated. Changes are necessary.

Remember, we all have the planet Mars and the sign of Aries in particular areas of our charts. Most of us are in some sort of a major (internal or external) battle right now. Go into the deep recesses of your being to learn how to use these energies in a way that uplifts all souls. Our egos are terribly tied up in this, be willing to change old ingrained patterns and move forward to support the humanity of everyone.

RELEASE AN IDEA OR OPINION – Thursday, September 10, 2020

With the Moon passing through talkative Gemini you will spend the bulk of the day curiously exploring ideas.

Do you have friends who baffle you with their beliefs and viewpoints? Today would be a great day to learn more about the world by asking questions and engaging them in shared curiosity.

Come to all conversations with an open mind. Set your personal agenda aside and see what you can learn about yourself and others.

Early this morning we reach the Third Quarter Moon. Think back to the seed you planted at the Leo New Moon on August 18th. Trust that that seed has taken solid root. Today, release any pressure on accomplishment. Relax in trust as you prepare for the Virgo New Moon on September 17th.


A FINE DREAMY DAY – Friday, September 11, 2020

By the day begins the Moon has entered the sensitive Water sign of Cancer. Your curiosity about friends and neighbors moves aside as your emotions step in to focus on family and home.

When the Moon is in Cancer tenderness and caring for others take on great importance. Make sure your boundaries are solid so that you don’t absorb other people’s emotions in a way that is self-destructive.

This afternoon the Sun opposes Neptune. This brings with it the tendency to be susceptible to confusion and discouragement. Avoid ego conflicts as they will likely suck your energy dry and leave you confused and sad.

This is not a good day to make any agreements that require clarity or focus. Important issues are not clear. You will do well to focus your attention on things that are not solidly tangible. Sing, paint, read poetry, find your inner artist to engage with. Bring forth your imagination and poetic nature. Stay in that realm and should be a fine dreamy day.

***The Gemini Moon is void-of-course from 12:48 AM EDT until she enters Cancer at 4:23 AM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.


EXPANSION MOVES FORWARD – Saturday, September 12, 2020

Jupiter is the planet of growth, abundance, and expansion. Having been retrograde since the middle of May, Jupiter stations direct today at 8:41 PM EDT. During its retrograde Jupiter has asked that we engage our philosophical and spiritual development through introspection and inner quiet reflection. This has been a time of reevaluating your most expansive ideas and moral beliefs.

As Jupiter moves forward we come forth with new beliefs and a new understanding of our former patterns of belief. What old patterns and beliefs have you released in the past 4 months?

Your new understanding supports awareness and further philosophical growth in the coming months. In mid-December Jupiter will enter Aquarius. At that time you will want to be ready to share your new philosophical understandings with your larger community. Prepare the groundwork for that now through sharpening your ideas, thinking, and ability to speak your truth.


ENGAGE YOUR FULL EXPRESSION – Sunday, September 13, 2020

Sunday begins with the sensitive Cancer Moon making challenging aspects to the problematic cluster of planets in Capricorn.

Once day each week the Moon has been making hard aspects to these planets. My experience during these transits has been simple and direct frustration. I don’t know about you but it is better for me to be on my own when I am frustrated. No good can come from allowing frustration to spill over onto others. Perhasp your best bet is to sleep late then go for a walk or a run on your own.

When the Moon enters Leo at 11:33 AM EDT the stress will lift and the rest of the day offers a respite from the heaviness of frustration. Seek out a brighter more self expressive space. Engage with creativity, generosity, and play.

***The Cancer Moon is void-of-course from 8:04 AM EDT until she enters Leo at 11:33 AM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.


* 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. 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.
