The Healing Power of Love Expands – Jupiter Enters Cancer!

Everyone wants to discuss MERCURY RETROGRADE!

But first let’s consider the GRAND TRINE forming today in the cosmos! 

THE SUN (CANCER), SATURN (SCORPIO), AND NEPTUNE (PISCES) are all in WATER SIGNS and making 120degree aspects (Trine) to each other.

Today we find ourselves in a flow of deep emotional energy.


CANCER brings us to thoughts of home, family, comfort, tenderness, and protective love. The deep energy of CANCER offers healing through love.

This creates a free flow of emotional energy. We are contained within this space of our own emotions and deepest feelings.

Between Mercury’s retrograde and the containment of this Water energy, today is not the day to attempt to express our emotions outwardly.

This is a solid time of internal processing.

We look to the past for comfort and security.  We want to understand the source of our emotional habits; the patterns that connect us to the past and to our ancestors.
In early Spring there were a number of personal planets in Gemini enabling us to stay pretty safely in our heads; no need to look at those, sometimes, messy feelings!

On May 31st Mercury entered Cancer, followed by Venus, the Sun and now, today, JUPITER!

The focus further expands from thinking to feeling; from our minds to our hearts.
JUPITER’S stay in CANCER will last a little over a year!

During this time there will be no mistaking the focus on family, home, comfort, and deep emotional connection.
During this influence we may notice how we comfort ourselves with food. Watch the tendency to over-eat as a way to feel safe and loved.

The last time Jupiter was in Cancer was between July 2001 – August 2002. If you can go back to a journal of that time it may be a good reminder of what Jupiter in Cancer brings to your personal emotional table.

Jupiter likes his/her time here, as the sign of Cancer provides the setting for expansion of love and caring.

During the coming weeks you may want to explore your old jewelry boxes, files of old letters, and those dusty cookbooks left behind from grandparents or other ancestors.

I will be sending out a separate post on Mercury Retrograde tomorrow!

Cancer Full Moon – Release Emotions of 2012

December 28, 2012:

As 2012 comes to a close we encounter one final challenge, one final emotional upheaval to remind us of what an intense year we are ready to put behind us.

Within the next few days we will be putting to rest an issue that began a year ago, culminated at the end of June and is now ready to be released.

Give that some thought and we will revisit it in a few days.

For now we want to consider today’s FULL MOON IN CANCER. Our emotions are so close to the surface.

We are given the opportunity for an emotional cleaning that will enable us to move more freely into the coming year.

The emotional issues that have haunted us throughout this year (as expressed through the SQUARE between URANUS AND PLUTO) are building; today’s FULL MOON provides a time of release.

It is important that we are conscious in this release to channel the power in a positive, life affirming manner.

This CANCER FULL MOON SQUARES URANUS IN ARIES (representing an impatient warrior) and OPPOSES PLUTO IN CAPRICORN (representing explosive, or transformed power). 

These are dangerous waters if we are not awake in our lives. We must keep our eyes, minds, and hearts open to the transformational power of love, kindness, and basic human goodness.

If we allow ourselves to slip into negative, ugly spaces we will wake tomorrow with deep regret. Take time to sit in quiet meditation this morning and create a day filled with love. Honor the life of those in your world. 

Give a ton of slack to anyone who is struggling. Do not expect perfection from yourself or others. For this moment, good enough is excellent!

SATURN IN SCORPIO is in a sweet supportive TRINE to this FULL MOON suggesting that we are able to go very deeply into the feelings that are presenting.  Ride the waves of deep sensitivity and deep emotion, we can handle more than we may realize. We have built a structure that is able to support us.

It is not necessary to hold emotion at a distance. Feel it fully, let go of whatever story is behind the feelings, stay with the emotions, let the story go.

We are able to  shift and transform pain to exquisite emotion.

Today we are presented with the opportunity to free ourselves from much of the hurt we have gathered throughout the year. Let it go. Come cleanly to 2013!





Family Connections With Moon in Cancer


My weekend was very busy and fully devoted to many levels of family!  I am, now, extremely content to be back in my own sweet home.

I had an absolutely wonderful visit with my two brothers and my Dad. It was the first time in many, many years that I have had any significant amount of time with just with my brother Mark, who is my closest sibling in age and manner of thinking. As children Mark and I were the ‘little kids’; without much identity of our own. It was very special to have time to really connect with him. It is amazing how many years can pass without taking the time to spend with folks we dearly love.

My older brother and my dear old dad graciously opened their home and hearts to our visit. As the beer and wine flowed freely we enjoyed food, laughter, political and philosophical conversations, gossip and memories.

As always I brought with me the charts of all involved! As we talked I spread the charts on the table and observed where the tender spots of Saturday’s GEMINI LUNAR ECLIPSE were affecting each of us. Then I simply watched as the CANCER MOON held us in the space of appreciation, love and family connection. A rare pleasure, indeed!

Amazingly, there was an unexpected peace to the entire weekend! There were no hurt feelings, no defensiveness, no anger, no manipulation or trying to convince anyone of positions not agreed upon! Now, that is unusual in any family gathering!!

It seems we were all able to tap into the tender loving side of the CANCER MOON without the shadow side of feeling overlooked or under-appreciated. Somehow we each understood the importance of keeping ourselves above the negative side of CANCER and stick with the side of CANCER that touches love, gratitude and care!

Today and most of tomorrow the MOON WILL CONTINUE IN CANCER. Spend whatever time you can with those you love. Be kind, appreciative, show love without expectation.

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.
