This is an interesting week as we head toward the Virgo New Moon early on Friday morning. The few days before each New Moon should be thought of as The Dark of The Moon, a time to rest and go inward. This is also a week of excitement and unexpected changes. Venus, Mars, the Sun, and Mercury all form flowing Trine aspects to Uranus, the planet of sudden shifts in direction, epiphanies, and innovation. We may find that we want more freedom and are willing to take more risks than usual. With Venus trine Saturn on Sunday, things should work out just fine.

Please keep in mind that your personal transits can override these more universal ones. A personal consultation offers deep understanding.

Monday, August 26, 2019


The week begins with the Moon in protective Cancer keeping your emotional focus on family, sensitivity, and moodiness. Yet the trine formed from Venus to Uranus at 11:38 AM EDT urges you to seek exciting changes regarding something that you value.

You long for more stimulation and excitement in your romantic relationships and friendships. Venus represents the things that we most value. Generally speaking, we value love, resources (money & possesions), and beauty. You may long for wild change in relationship, or you may want to buy a new updated and unique wardrobe or create a wildly unusual piece of art.

The status quo is not going to satisfy you today. A new love interest could develop quickly under this influence. Keep in mind that a relationship starting now may not be stable and could end as quickly as it begins. Don’t let that stop you from having a ton of fun while it lasts!

The Cancer Moon remains until evening when she enters Leo at 7:54 PM EDT. For the bulk of the day you can expect to remain focused on emotional needs of safety, security, and belonging. Because the Moon ‘rules’ Cancer, don’t be surprised that everyone’s tender emotions are very close to the surface. This is a day to keep family connections, self care, and kindness as your top priorities. Happiness will come with close familial connections and domestic activities. Nurture yourself and your loved ones.

When the Moon enters Leo this evening a more playful nature comes forth that will hold sway for the next few days. It is time to shake off deep emotion in exchange for fun and creativity. A romantic connection before bedtime is the perfect way to make this shift.


The Cancer Moon is void-of-course from 4:56 AM EDT until she enters Leo at 7:54 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

The day begins with a lovely flowing trine aspect from assertive Mars to wildly unique Uranus. It is time to let your freak flag fly!

Look around and you will see that you are not alone. There is a strong desire to break free of restrictions and boring routines. You are ready to let your hair down and take a risk or two. Don’t do the same old things today/ this week. Go someplace new, speak to folks you’ve never spoken to before, find new experiences to explore. Your mind is open to ideas and ways of understanding that may surprise you.

With the Moon in Leo, this may be a dramatic and boisterous day. Don’t go straight home after work. Hire a babysitter if necessary, go out dancing. The Leo Moon encourages dramatic self-expression and playful creativity. You will want to be seen and appreciated for your most unique qualities.

Go ahead and take a creative risk, allow others to see a part of you that you normally keep under wraps.


The Leo Moon is void-of-course from 8:07 PM EDT until she enters Virgo tomorrow evening. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

Thursday, August 29, 2019


In the early morning hours, Mercury, the planet of thought and communication joins with the Sun, Mars, and Venus already in Virgo. This puts Virgo Season in highest gear.

While in Virgo, Mercury brings precision and meticulous care to thoughts and speech. You are more analytical in your thinking and more judgy toward how others express themselves. Approach others with a good dose of compassion and kindness to keep a cap on your judgemental tendencies

For most of the day, the Moon continues through Leo. Use the careful thinking of Mercury in Virgo to support the expression of creativity. Find a creative way to use your words. Write a children’s story for your child or grandchild.

The Moon joins the crowd of planets already gathered in Virgo at 7:57 PM EDT.

At 11:14 PM EDT the Virgo Sun forms a trine aspect to excitable Uranus. Even with so many planets in practical Virgo, it is unlikely that you will be chugging along accomplishing tidy, meticulous chores. Watch for quirky dreams tonight and possibly excitement and epiphanies tomorrow. You may have trouble sleeping under this influence. If so, get up and do some writing. Get the flashes of insight and self-discovery down on paper. Again, look to the houses that hold Virgo and Taurus in your chart for clues.


The Leo Moon is void-of-course until she enters Virgo at 7:57 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

With the excitement of the Sun trine Uranus still with us from last night, we reach the Virgo New Moon at 6:38 AM EDT. Each New Moon follows several days of the Dark of the Moon, a time of inward silent development. At the New Moon, we plant a seed for future growth. Do your New Moon ritual late in the day or even tomorrow. You may feel pulled in several directions today. On the one hand, the Virgo Moon wants you to focus on practicality and efficient service to others. On the other, the Sun trine Uranus encourages you to take risks and express something unusual or unique.

Find a way to balance these desires. Explore unusual ideas in a practical way. And don’t forget your New Moon Ritual!

~Virgo New Moon Ritual ~ Take a moment to write down the changes you wish to begin, create, or increase in this Moon Cycle. The Virgo New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of meticulous anyalysis and practicality. Have two candles available. Light the first to represent yourself, as you are right now. Light the second candle as inspiration for what you the change you want to create. Take a moment to focus as you light each candle, imagine drawing the change toward you as you physically bring the two candles closer together. Do this each day for two weeks. At the Gemini Full Moon (September 14) bring the candles fully together and acknowledge what you have created.

It makes sense that the holiday we celebrate during Virgo Season is a celebration of effort and work. If you are attending gatherings or parties, you can find many practical details to make the event successful. Plenty of effort goes into the preparations and the after-party clean-up. The tasks involved, and being of service to others, may bring more satisfaction than the party itself.

The Virgo Moon helps you chug along doing practical chores and getting things done efficiently. Keep your expectations reasonable and curb the tendency to be critical of yourself and others.

At 7:08 PM EDT the Moon enters diplomatic beauty-oriented Libra. Now the socializing will comes more easily. The Libra Moon supports romantic or diplomatic endeavors, socializing, or creating art. As you interact with others, remember that everyone will be more cooperative this evening. Face any challenging issues with dispassionate objectivity. Libra asks that you put cooperation ahead of other considerations. Face internal and external work with grace and decorum.


The Virgo Moon is void-of-course from 4:46 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 7:08 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

Sunday, September 1, 2019


Today is an exciting day with two lovely trine aspects bringing a flow to mental intensification even as love and values are stabilized. The Moon is in Libra suggesting an undercurrent of pleasure and ease in social situations.

The Morning brings Mercury trine Uranus which excites your thinking. This will open your mind to new possibilities as it brings unusual, intense, and interesting conversations to the table. You may receive communications that startle and electrify your system. With an open mind you can make new friends that will challenge, illuminate, and change your thinking.

This afternoon brngs another trine, this one from Venus to Saturn. Consider long-term financial and relationship plans. You will need to balance the wild ideas in your mind with a practical conservative approach to love and money. Let your thinking be wild even as you are steady, loyal, and stable with love and money.


* 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.

Illumination: Uranus Square Pluto

Yesterday seemed quiet, eerily quiet, perhaps. The eye-of-the-storm.

Consider what is below the story we keep telling ourselves.

Don’t try to find (or make up) another story-line; that would simply complicate the issue.

What is the energy below the story-line? Intense emotion is powerful and not easy to clearly see.

Two days ago the LIBRA SUN SQUARED PLUTO(CAPRICORN) and we were allowed to (or forced to) see both sides of an issue. 

Our desire to be helpful, compromise, and bring beauty to the world has been at an impasse with the power structures that believe they have the right to intense levels of power and control.

Think about this on both the large, national, and world stage, as well as in your own individual and private life.

If we keep our eyes open we see the reflections of the clash between these powerful energies in nearly every sector of life.

Today’s LIBRA SUN OPPOSES URANUS(ARIES), we are no longer able to avoid or deny the strain (and/or powerful excitement) on all systems, personal and universal.

Let us take responsibility for making good use of this unexpectedly powerful energy.

We must take hold of this energy before we become afraid. 

Move with it, ride it, for all it is worth; in the direction of excitement, anticipation, and joy.

The world, our culture, and our lives are changing, there is no doubt.

We can be afraid or we can open with curiosity to the excitement and possibility of what is new.

This is a time of great opportunity!

The world is ready for brilliant innovations and intense transformation of our world. 

Stay alert. Help others. Be patient. Be kind.

Open to Simplicity & Deep Connection

As we come to the end of another deeply intense week, there is much to contemplate, much to consider as we chose our path forward.

As Sunday brings the FIRST QUARTER MOON we seek the appropriate step forward, the action that is necessary at this juncture.

The old is gone, the new continues to beckon.  We wait for clarity.

The bridge to our future vision seems unclear.  Although, it may be right in front of us; simply not as yet recognized or acknowledged!

Are we able to deeply trust our minds? Do we clearly perceive the reality of our situation?

Without a solid trust of our minds and our perceptions how can we choose our path forward?  How do we develop an unshakable trust in our minds?

The clouds that obscure our vision seem numerous.  This is the condition of our minds.  Beyond that veil is a clear blue sky; one that we know is simple and true.  How do we see beyond the veil of those constantly shifting forms?

It is interesting to watch as we attempt to accommodate, and understand, the new reality of the current WATER GRAND TRINE!

For so long we have been held tightly in the grip of the Square between URANUS AND PLUTO!  The tension between URANUS AND PLUTO is still very much with us, and is not ending anytime soon!  However, it is important to understand that the current GRAND TRINE gives us a way to work with the reality of where we find ourselves and a way to see beyond the clouds that obscure our vision and our clarity of mind.

When times are challenging it is easy to think that nothing will ever get better! Last Fall we may have had a glimpse of remembering that nothing stays the same, that these times of stress are changing, even as they continue to transform the fabric of our lives.  Last October Saturn first came into Trine aspect with Neptune.

Are we beginning to understand that it is now our choice to transcend the limitations we perceive; that we can rise above what has been holding us back?

The personal planets are now moving into, and through, CANCER, connecting with SATURN (SCORPIO) AND NEPTUNE (PISCES) forming a GRAND TRINE.

The opportunity to transcend the difficulties we have been immersed in (through a softening of our internal walls) is reflected and supported by this ongoing Grand Trine.

Look around! You may be amazed at the number of people who are moving in the direction of emotional healing and spiritual transcendence. As a collective we are opening our hearts deeply to an understanding of the profound interconnectedness of our world!

Each day I talk with amazing people. I hear incredible stories of love and of new found understanding of our interconnectedness. I witness people having breakthroughs, realizing that kindness, generosity, overwhelming compassion, and love are the most important things we have to offer to all of the world. 

The awareness that as we offer this love and compassion to the world, the cold places in our own hearts are healed as well. With this healing, this softening comes an amazing freedom to our souls!  In this freedom come the trust and openness of MIND. We understand that MIND and HEART are ONE.

Last week both MERCURY and VENUS took their place, forming the first of a full expression of this GRAND TRINE.  Mind and Heart open to transcendence of boundaries and stabilization of transcendence.

Throughout the next six weeks The Sun, Jupiter, and Mars will cycle through this space.

This reflects our availability to engage in deeply significant  levels of love and connection throughout our Summer season.

Stay tuned for more information as we move into the coming weeks ahead. For now, enjoy this weekend with the lovely MOON IN VIRGO.  Seek and deliver selfless kindness.

Allowing Upheaval, Riding the Wave! Uranus Meets Pluto

Here we are, once again, or still… heading into very intense waters. 

Actually if we open our eyes we may find we are already deeply submerged!

Perhaps it has happened very quickly! We knew this change was coming but we weren’t really expecting it yet!

This is a crucial juncture in our journey. It is time to take a REALLY clear look at the reality of our circumstances. 

After all, the idea that we could avoid or hide from reality is ludicrous!

I have been contemplating recently how I would live my life if I knew this were my last year to live in this body.  Consider this! How would YOU live if this were truly the last year of YOUR life?

What actions are necessary in order to move in the direction YOU know would bring YOU the deepest satisfaction?

What would enable you to take on the higher purpose of your life?

Do you know what that purpose is? Consider where in your life you feel a flow that makes you lose track of everything else. Consider what feeds your soul on the very deepest level and makes your heart sing!

These are important considerations and questions we need to be asking ourselves and each other.

Lets get clear enough with ourselves that we can live a life of great beauty, great love, great passion, and great service to others.

It is time that You find your passion, your flow!

Where are Uranus and Pluto transiting in your natal horoscope? Where in your life is empowerment being offered, and transformation being demanded? 

What are YOU doing to create the space for this change?  How are your decisions and personal transformation assisting in the transformation of the entire human race, in some profound or subtle way?

On Monday, May 20 (EDT) we reach the third of seven exact hits of this powerful life changing and culture altering transit!

Contact me for a consultation! These are wild times we are navigating! Together we can explore what these times are asking of you. 

An astrological consultation will reveal a larger perspective and will show where and how you are being impacted by theses changes.  We can help you to a deeper understanding of your place in the patterns of these Universal changes.

Sending love and gratitude to each and every one of you,


Uranus and Pluto, Ramping-Up Intensity and Transformation

Uranus and Pluto are heading back into the limelight again!

We are moving into a very active and intense few weeks as we move ever closer to the next exact Square between Uranus and Pluto (May 20th).

Our attention is drawn, or perhaps riveted, to the energy of this combination as it is being activated by Mars, Venus, and the Sun. 

Mars made contact with Uranus last Friday and will Square Pluto on Tuesday, the day before the Full Moon (Libra). Over the next two weeks both Venus and the Sun will follow suit as they make connections with this intensely powerful pair.

As these planets, all in ARIES, move toward Uranus they will activate the energy that is so intensely stretched. They effectively provide us with a graphic preview as they pave the way toward the upcoming URANUS AND PLUTO Stand-off! 

Pay attention, during this time, to our own processes, the stories we hear about the lives of those around us, the local, national, and world news! Look for truths to be revealed, secrets to be uncovered.

Can we feel the intense vibration of power, anxiety, and revolution?  Can we sense the demand for independence, for revelations, the demand for clarity and honesty?

We don’t have to look far to see the clash of energies in the world or in our own hearts. We long for the stability of what we know and yet we require change and revolution. We know that the old order must be brought to an end or we will annihilate ourselves, yet we can’t bare to to face the fear of leaving the past behind.

We want the excitement of moving ahead but are afraid of what is real change will bring. We want to see revolution and yet we are afraid to lose the power we now hold in our own hands.

To deeply understand astrology it is important to realize that each planet is in relationship with every other planet. Each pair of planets goes through cycles of relationship.

Consider about what you know about the Moon Cycle, review that information if necessary.

The current cycle between URANUS AND PLUTO began in 1965/1966 when they came together in a conjunction. The conjunction between any two planets correlates to the New Moon in that it is the beginning of a New Cycle; something new is created at this New Cycle.

Two powerful energies came together in 1965-66 reflecting an amazing birth of new energy in our world and in our hearts. Everything felt new and all things felt possible in the 1960’s! If you were there you remember the power in those years. If you have read your history books you may have some glimmer.

The 1960’s were perfectly reflective of the energies of these two planets. Uranus = Revolution, Pluto = Transformation. The 60’s were born.

Now we are in the First Quarter Phase of the relationship between these two planets.  Always the first Square in a Relationship between two planets brings the issues that were born at the Conjunction to a point of Crisis and a Demand for Action!

Every issue of the 1960 is back on the table, we are clearly at a point of Crisis, all these issues are demanding action and growth.

Let us each put our strongest efforts into our response to these times.  It is time to work toward our future as humans on this planet. 

What can we do to help?

We must each make the effort to be true to ourselves, to be kind to each other, to let go of the patterns we have been stuck in of selfishness and look to where we can be of service.

We must come to understand that in order to help ourselves and the planet we must serve each other. Only in lifting each other do we all reach higher ground.

Let us work to respond to this time of Crisis in a manner that will bring us to a powerful Full phase when Uranus Opposes Pluto in 2046!

If we can work it well this time, I think I’ll try to stay around that long to see the full illumination of this amazing cycle!  I can almost imagine!!

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.
