Powerful Winds

Last week’s powerful storm here on the coast of Maine brought 70mph winds just at high tide. The high winds pushed the sea into my little town which has sustained a great deal of damage. My daily walk along the harbor, over the boardwalk, and across the pedestrian bridge is now impassable with great damage to the boardwalk. We have a nearly identical storm coming in now as I write this. It is certainly worrisome. 

Winds bring Change

Pluto is moving ever closer to the powerful change that is already rocking our world. On Saturday, January 20th, the Sun and Pluto grasp hands as they each enter Aquarius within several hours of each other. This is a very powerful ingress.

*Please, DO NOT equate Pluto moving into Aquarius with the age of Aquarius. 

If you remember something bubbling up in your life last Spring (late March to mid-June) that involved the house that holds Aquarius in your natal chart (use the whole sign house system), watch for its return. That was a preliminary glimpse into the future, we get a clearer view between now and September. At that point, Pluto will take one more backward glance into Capricorn (between September 1st – November 19th) before remaining in Aquarius until 2043.*Please, DO NOT equate this with the age of Aquarius.

Watch the video Jennie and I made before Pluto’s first ingress into Aquarius in March 2023. There is individual information for each Rising Sign. 

We plan to make another video about this profound change in the coming weeks. You will also get excellent information by watching the video we have made about Aquarius Season. 


Also, watch the Aquarius 2024 Season video

The video that Jennie and I made about the upcoming Aquarius Season will provide you (also time-stamped for each sign) with great information on how to approach the powerful days ahead. Do not underestimate the power of Pluto’s shift into Aquarius.

The Moon glides through dreamy and intuitive Pisces today offering a time of heightened sensitivity and a tendency towards introspection. You may find that you are more attuned to subtle nuances of others and the world around you, fostering deep sensitivity. 

At 7:37 PM EST, the Capricorn Sun forms a harmonious sextile aspect with Neptune.

This is a sweet blending of Capricorn’s grounded ambition and Neptune’s ethereal imagination. This is a great time to infuse practical goals with a touch of inspiration and creativity. The disciplined and strategic approach of Capricorn can benefit from the imaginative and spiritually attuned qualities of Neptune, potentially bringing forth a very practical approach to compassion. Over the next day or two look for a middle ground where aspirations combine with a sense of purpose and a touch of magic.

As the Moon travels through the dynamic and assertive sign of Aries, the day takes on a bold and hurried flavor. Aries, known for its fiery and passionate nature, infuses the atmosphere with a sense of enthusiasm and desire for action. You may notice that you and those around you are a bit more impulsive than usual, taking initiative, and tackling challenges head-on.

During an Aries moon, emotions may be expressed with heightened intensity, and there is a tendency towards straightforward and sometimes harsh communication. The need for independence and autonomy is more pronounced, as we seek to assert ourselves and our individual ambitions. We are more willing than usual to take risks and begin something new. We may not think it through clearly, but our passion can bring us a long way. The Aries Moon asks us to be courageous as we embrace our passions and boldly step into the unknown.

Today expresses much of the same energies as yesterday with the Moon continuing through the cardinal fires sign of Aries. We may feel dynamic and spontaneous, encouraged to embrace a proactive mindset and take bold initiatives. Aries, known for its fiery nature, instills a sense of enthusiasm and a desire for action. We all feel the urge to assert our independence and pursue our individual goals with passion.

At 3:14 PM EST, the Aries Moon forms a square aspect with Mars in Capricorn. This introduces a dynamic tension between the assertiveness of Aries and the disciplined ambition of Mars in Capricorn. Mars rules Aries making this doubly important. Although you may encounter a clash of resistance, stay steady and you can make great strides in learning how to balance impulsive tendencies with a pragmatic approach. Bringing mindfulness to your actions and decisions will go a long way toward an important lesson in self-management.

While you slept the Moon entered the steadfast and grounded realm of Taurus. Taurus, being the fixed earth sign, is associated with qualities of endurance, reliability, and a connection to the material world. As the Moon moves through Taurus, we find ourselves seeking comfort in the tangible aspects of life, appreciating sensory experiences and a slower more deliberate pace.

This morning also brings us a harmonious connection between Mercury and Saturn in the form of a 30-degree sextile aspect.

This blends Mercury’s communicative and intellectual focus with Saturn’s disciplined and structured influence. This offers us the opportunity to ground our thinking, bringing a more measured and strategic tone to our communications. This encourages practical thinking as well as a clear and organized approach to projects of all kinds. You may find it easier to articulate your ideas and approach tasks with a steady focus. 



Friday, January 19, 2024

With both Mercury and Jupiter in stable earth signs, they form a trine aspect in the early hours of the morning. Mercury is the planet of communication and intellect and Jupiter is the planet of expansion, faith, and belief. This flowing connection between them suggests a time of optimistic and broad-minded thinking. This should be a favorable time for dry humor and effective communication, a great time to make plans and engage in thoughtful discussions that expand higher understanding.

At 10:48 AM EST, a very different planetary conversation occurs as Venus forms a square aspect to Neptune.

Pay careful attention to this as it may bring a sense of ambiguity in relationships, as well as challenges in distinguishing between reality and illusion. While Venus seeks harmony and connection, Neptune’s influence can introduce a touch of romantic idealism, lack of clarity, uncertainty, and even confusion. This is a time to approach interactions with others with a discerning eye, being mindful of potential illusions as well as unfulfilled expectations.

The stabilizing presence of the Taurus Moon adds a touch of practicality to these dynamics. A great way to use this day is to spend time with music or creative endeavors. Rest, sing, listen to or make music, swim, write or read poetry, watch old movies, daydream. 

After today’s storm, the damage will be even greater. My harbor walk.


Saturday, January 20, 2024

Today marks a powerful moment in time as the Sun joins forces with Pluto at the very unstable 29th degree of Capricorn. Right after they come together the two of them move into Aquarius, hand in hand. We are all invited to pay attention to power dynamics, on a personal, collective, and global level. Here in my little coastal town, I am watching the unbelievable power of the ocean as it is confronting and transforming our coastline. The damage we are watching in weather events and wars all over the world are excellent metaphors for Pluto. On a personal level, this is a time to confront our understanding of power in all its forms.

The Sun and Pluto conjunct at 8:45 PM EST, the Sun enters Aquarius at 9:07 AM EST, and Pluto enters Aquarius at 7:50 PM EST.

Pluto is the slowest planet, taking 248 years to travel the entire ecliptic. For comparison, it takes the Moon 28 days and the Sun 365 days. The last time Pluto was in Aquarius was between 1777 and 1797. Pluto will remain in Aquarius (with one tiny retrograde September – November 2024) until 2043. Pluto brings major change, the purpose of which is empowerment. However, Pluto will destroy whatever is in the way of that ultimate empowerment. Look what it has done in Capricorn since 2008! 

Expect to see major revelations in the coming weeks about hidden plans, agendas, intentions, and what we’re moving into at this time. For now, watch the video that Jennie and I made about the Aquarius Season. You may also want to watch the video that we made when Pluto dipped its toes into Aquarius last Spring

Where is Aquarius in your natal chart? This is important information to help you navigate the power dynamics that are coming your way.

Please watch the video that Jennie and I made about this wild Aquarius season. Make no mistake, this is no ordinary Aquarius Season.

As we navigate the reverberations of the planetary alignments that unfolded yesterday, the Moon continues its journey through Gemini today. The influence of Gemini brings a light and adaptable energy to the atmosphere, fostering a sense of curiosity and a desire for communication. This encourages us to be flexible in our responses to the changes that have been set in motion. Gemini’s influence promotes open-mindedness and a willingness to explore diverse perspectives, making it an opportune time for conversations, learning, and the exchange of ideas as we adapt to the shifts initiated by Pluto’s entrance into Aquarius
