Astro-LOA Flash: Mind boggling Mercury Retrograde square King of the unconscious sea Neptune over the next two days. It could be a time of confusion, there for your support and pleasure.
No, I haven’t gone nuts. I’m saying confusion can be a goldmine, if you approach it with the right perspective.
Think of it this way. Confusion releases you from your relentless path or goals, giving you a time out to question your best course of action. It ties in with the idea that Mercury Retrograde is all about review, reflection and release. Add in the non-linear, right brain Neptune energy, and basically, it’s best to be out to lunch, for now!
Research is also showing that confusion is a good thing. It means you are beginning to understand!
Confusion is a natural part of learning. If I’m not getting confused then I’m not learning enough. –
Confusion helps us let go of old ideas, set points and beliefs. It’s the stage of the hero’s journey where we get lost in the woods, deep in the liminal regions without a map. When that happens, we will find new pathways, something nigh impossible to discover if the way is perfectly clear.
If you can get on board with a dose of confusion, this weekend is going to be auspicious. If you fight it, it’ll be a pain in the butt, your choice. The idea is to allow the seas of Neptune’s unconscious to wash over you. Be lost, at this time, and see what rises up from the journey.

Astro-LOA Flash: Mars turns Void of Course in Taurus (see times below) giving us some coasting time until the big bang into Gemini. Think of it as shifting into neutral when you’re clocking a good speed. You have a certain momentum and now you can let things ride.

Things to do on a Mars VOC
Relax, sleep in, congratulate yourself on what is working, growing, flourishing, and allow the trajectory to take you to the next exciting step. Celebrate!
Things not to do on a Mars VOC
Push, shovel, slave, barter, badger, holler, wrangle, threaten, macro or micro manage, regret, chastise, judge.
Mars is the engine of the psyche. The action station! It burns the fuel to turn the pistons of your life, getting you out of bed in the morning to jump into a new day.
Learn More about the astrology – natal and transit – of Mars on this quick tutorial.
When VOC, it’s ideal to unwind while you fill the tanks! Why? Because Mars has just been through almost all of Taurus and you have burned your Taurus house/planets down to the nib. In the days of the void, you refuel! Joss Whedon, a Cancer btw and clearly adept and self-nurturing and love, says:
Fill the tanks, fill the tanks. Constantly watch things, and things you don’t [normally watch]. Step outside your viewing zone, your reading zone. It’s all fodder but if you only take from one thing then it’ll show. – Joss Whedon
Whether your focused on business, art, helping professions, family, parenting, farming, it doesn’t matter. Find a way to refill what has been depleted. It might be reading, viewing, more exercise, less exercise, more nourishing food, fasting, massage, meditation, parties, sex, intimacy or time on your own. Your inner guidance knows what to do, or not do. Just fill the tanks.
NOTE: It’s usually the Moon’s void of course phase that we track, occurring for hours or a day every 2.5 days, but any planet, other than the sun, goes void of course. There are several ways to measure this. The contemporary way is to note when the Moon or planet is PAST the exact degree of its final major aspect while still in its current sign. So on the 9th of May, when Mars reaches 28 Taurus 24, it makes no applying aspect in that sign until moving into Gemini on the 11th. At that point it immediately applies to the square to Saturn at 2 Sagittarius.
Mars VOID is a really cool time to play with Jeannette Maw’s idea of doing nothing. Nothing but receive!
Let me know in the comments how you fill the tanks.
I’m putting in extra reading, meditation, conscious appreciation and making a career mood board. I’ll blog on that when Mars is in Gemini!

April 18/19 is the New Moon in Aries!
Until then, chill with dark moon. You know the drill! Self-nourish, quiet reflection, release anxiety through mediation, dance, yoga, the sea, nature, gardening, martial arts, animal familiars and note down intentions to state aloud on the new moon.
Aries is all about taking action and pushing forward. Where do you want to advance with your life? Rev up your excitement? Check out the house with 28 degrees of Aries and light a fire there! *reference for all 12 houses below*
This New Moon forms no major aspects to any other planets; the emphasis is very much on bringing your yin and yang, your anima and animus, into alignment and moving into a NEW phase of your life. The minor, 40 degree novile aspect to Venus adds charm, curiosity and grace to whatever you focus on.
Note also, this Sagittarius decanate of Aries – robust, independent, feisty and commanding. A basic ‘don’t fence me in’ attitude applies! Ask where you want to EXPAND your life!

I am what?) Where Aries is in your chart, you be the boss, take the road only you can travel, and make a difference!
ARIES: The New Moon and Uranus in Aries in your solar first house boosts drive, enthusiasm and desire for adventure. You’re going to want to make the first move, and the second and third. Be sure you know where to point your energy, because once out the gate, there’s no turning back.
TAURUS: The Aries New Moon is a dreamers’ moon for you, giving you time to plant seeds of intention, take your time in setting them with clarity and enjoying their slow and steady growth. Let others run around like wild children. You have a plan, an inspiration, and you stick to it!
GEMINI: An old friendship resurfaces with an offer or idea that might having you changing course. This is an exciting time where you are charmed with success, especially in group endeavors or working with like-minded others. You definitely want to schedule in more social time, online and face to face!
CANCER: Just when you were hoping for a little quiet down time, the career and media attention blasts you into the public eye. This will move your professional desires forward at top speed, but do be mindful of your own pace, and need for a sanctuary. Find a balance as you set intentions for high level success!
LEO: There’s a course of study, a degree or travel (mind, body or spirit) that has your attention. You can get the grant, loan or other support to move forward with this dream, as long as it is original, and lights you up sky high. No matter how many contingencies are in place, remember, be the boss. Take charge!
VIRGO: This is the perfect New Moon to set intentions around joint finances in a business partnership or intimate. Without guidelines, it could get crazy out of hand. So stake your claim now, and not just for the $$$ but for the time, energy and creative input you contribute. Find clarity in all your connections!
LIBRA: Whatever is going on in your personal, socially significant one-to-one relationships, NOW is when you set intentions for what you want. No more dilly dally. To live the connections most fulfilling, you declare your desires. This is also the time to sort animosities, open enemies or conflicts. Go to it!
SCORPIO: Intentions around health, fitness and body awareness are transformational with this New Moon. It’s the perfect time to initiate a new exercise routine, adjust nutrition, drop non-nourishing habits and create fresh rituals that support the life you want to live. Play with this!
SAGITTARIUS: With your ruler Jupiter trine Uranus, and linked to the New Moon by sign, you’ll want a super-size rocket for this fuel! Focus on your desires for romance, art, creativity, play and the joys of the heart be they books you write, pictures you paint or children you raise. Find enthusiasm, and fun!
CAPRICORN: Your question this month is, are you happy with your home? The house itself, the location, the occupants are important, but on a deeper level, think about your sense of roots, connection, sanctuary and tribe. This is where you set intentions for what you really want! Make them true.
AQUARIUS: Ideas for the future roll in at a rapid pace, sparking vivid conversations, proposals and projects. Write everything down! Not all will make it to the drawing board immediately, but they might be perfect for brainstorming a little further down the track. Be ready to speak, pitch, debate and rave!
PISCES: Whatever is happening in your financial world, you will want to tune into your highest excitement and launch from there. That means find your deepest core values and make certain they are expressing in all your money making projects. Above all else, to success, your heart must be in it!

What kind of reading personality are you?
Most of us have a preference for certain kinds of books that fall into multiple genres. We also have a style of reading – eclectic, focused, serial, exacting, flitting, browsing. Whatever our approach, it changes over time, representing healthy evolution.
Can these preferences be related to the zodiac?
Test it for yourself and see!
ARIES: An independent reader. You like to browse for something that spontaneously lights your fire. Who cares what the critics think? This is all about your desires. No need to hold the thrills, chills and spills. Adventure and conflict a must. Action, SF, Romantic Thriller, War, Page Turners.
TAURUS: A slower pace isn’t an issue, as long as there is sensuality and pleasure. Woven into the pages is a true alpha hero and a powerful, high libido female. HEA is probably a must. Finds delight in Romance, Erotica, Memoir, Historical Fiction, Alternate History Fantasy.
GEMINI: Must capture interest in the first sentence. No slow starts. Must also be intelligent. sharp and fresh. Bestsellers are excellent for conversations/social gatherings. Loves a good “whodunnit”, Medical or SF Romance, Urban Fantasy, Crime-procedural, Self-Help, Literary Fiction.
CANCER: Loves tales of the past, historical, classical, haute sensibilities – Jane Austin! But not afraid of the darker side of fiction. Must engage the emotions. Will tolerate almost anything as long as there is a non-contrived HEA. Cook Books, Vampire, Mystery, Paranormal. Of course Romance!

Astro-LOA Flash: Mars into Sagittarius on the 13th/14th of September
LA – Saturday – 2:56 pm
NY – Saturday – 5:56 pm
LON – Saturday – 10:56 pm
SYD – Sunday – 7:56 am
Mars into Sagittarius is the talker, the traveling, the new opportunities maker. This is a restless, fire fueled energy that needs room to move.
It takes a strong Saturn presence to contain this brand of warrior and with the departing conjunction (when Saturn and Mars were together in Scorpio) there is a feeling of:
1) take what you know and DO something with it
2) allow for impulses and intuitive feelings
3) ask, “how can I be more independent, playful and free?”
You’re going to want to have a powerful and engaging physical channel for this mojo as well.
Mars into Saggo Checklist:
Expanding my horizons
Taking emotional risks
Saying it like it is
Feeling empowered in my physicality
Shooting arrows into the future
Yes, Mars is all about the action and in Saggo, it goes LARGE, but not all actions are create equal. Check what Jeannette Maw has to say about categories of action.
What’s your mantra for Mars into Sagittarius? Where is it lighting up your chart? I would love to hear about it!

I’m doing a full write up on the Chinese Year of the Horse next week, but this excellent post from Mommy Mystic will whet your appetite! Thank you Symbolreader for the heads up!
“When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes.”
– Shakespeare, Henry V
January 31st is Chinese New Year, ushering in the Year of the Horse, and it is followed one month later by Losar, the Tibetan New Year. As I’ve done the last few years, over at BellaOnline I’ve offered an overview of some of the traditional interpretations of the Year of the Horse, drawn from Chinese astrology. Here at Mommy Mystic I’m doing my own take, based on the symbolism of the horse in various cultures and time periods. This is part intuitive read, and part symbolic play.
I hope you enjoy it and feel inspired by the energies available this year, because if there is one prominent theme in…

ASTRO-LOA FLASH: Mars, the inner warrior, the energy that gets us out of bed in the morning, asserts our WILL, and drives us forward into action, enters the fiery sign of Leo, ruled by the Sun. Think bold, commanding, animated and aware! It’s the light of consciousness, after all. The questions is, where does this shine in your chart?
MARS INTO LEO – AUG 27/28th
LA – Wed – 7:04 pm
NY – Wed – 10:04 pm
LON – Thur – 3:04 am
SYD – Thur – 12:04 pm
The natural seat of Leo is the fifth house, ruling anything that makes us feel special, unique or creative, like children, artistic endeavors, literary works, dance, music, drama, love affairs, play, risk, speculation . . . you get the idea. Wherever Mars is transiting for you, it brings this energy with it. Big time!
Leo links to the sun, a sign of individuality, healing, vital force, identity, purpose and destiny. It packs a lot of kick. Mars amps up our creative expression, power, courage and sense of authority. Where Leo falls is in the chart is the landscape this energy will likely unfold, where thoughts turn into actions, creative expression skyrockets and self-worth grows. In two words, game on!
Where we find Leo in the horoscope is where we need to feel distinct, special and artistic. We want to be in the limelight in some way, affirming our value, worth and merit. The sights are always set on the future and Leo has no problem imagining how things might be, which is basically, AWESOME. Leo is also all about the heart.
Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart.. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens. –Carl Jung
Leo rules the heart, making this the perfect time to look deep into our wellspring of love. Is it depleted or brimming? What can we do to engage more here? As we know, like attracts like, so the building of love, heart and creative fire begins with our thoughts. For example, to amp up creativity, we might ask:
1) what would a more creative life look like?
2) what would it feel like?
3) what would I be like?
Then notice and APPRECIATE how you are like that, right here, right now, in this red hot moment. Let your imagination loose on this! It’s guaranteed to awaken the muse with life changing consequences.
Every “I am” flamboyantly spreads its…intensity in whorls of self-expression and self-glorification. It sees itself pictured in the eyes of being…in the shapes its creative imagination summoned…in walls made alive with arabesques and sounding boards pregnant with a myriad of potential tones.” –Dane Rudhyar
Dennis Elwell puts it simply:
“No matter what he is doing, Leo should be encouraged to put the distinctive stamp of his own personality on it.”
Remember, Mars is energy, heat, molecular motion. Without Mars, we would not be able to move forward, assert our desires or even stand our ground. When this planet is in Leo, the dynamic of CREATIVE and HEART FELT LIFE hits overdrive! What will you be doing to support this energy?

Astro-LOA Flash: Mars has just moved into Aries, the sign that represents the beginning of manifestation. This is it! Where we jump into activity, initiate and assert ourselves and interACT in the world of appearances.
Mars is energy, heat, molecular motion, and without Mars, we would not be able to move forward. When this planet is in his natural placement of Aries, the dynamic of LIFE hits overdrive! Buckle up, everybody because things are ready to jettison! This is never more strongly felt than when Mars crosses the 0 degree Aries point, the beginning of the 30 degrees of Aries in the zodiac.
The Aries Point is found where you see zero degrees of the Cardinal sign of Aries (it’s also 0 Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, but more on that later). Everyone’s chart has the Aries Point at exactly the same zero degrees, yet each chart will be unique as far as WHERE, or what house, zero Aries falls in. Find where 0 Aries is in your chart, and where Mars will be transiting for the next forty days, and you know where you want to amp up, jump in, stake your claim and stand tall! You go large here, and you vibe strong, enthused and confident!

Not sure how to find the Aries Point in your chart? Here are the quick step tutorials to get you there!
2) Find your Ascendant and any other point in the chart
3) Look for the Aries glyph and remember the signs run counter clockwise around the chart. In the case of James Bond, on the right, 8 Aries rules (sits on) the 8th house cusp, so we go back 8 degrees into the 7th house to find 0 Aries (8-8 = 0)
Where you find 0 Aries, you want to take positive action from within. Amp up your physical and mental activities, be the boss, lead the way and nurture (respect) your inner warrior. For bond, this would probably mean facing ‘open enemies’ or taking over direction in a partnership.
The cool thing about the Aries Point (AP) is that it’s a place where we catch the eye of the public. So having Mars transit there puts a focus on our PR, how others see us, how they remember us. Mars brings our assertive, directing and action oriented qualities out into the open, in that area of life, and we grab the attention of society. We are seen as commanding, raw and imposing. The famous warrior, leader, director!
Where is Mars in Aries transiting in your chart these next forty days? Can you think of ways to boost your energy here? What ‘feeds’ you in this area of life? Go to that house, and stir it up!
