Astro-LOA Flash: It’s mid-winter solstice in the southern hemisphere; mid-summer in the north. Traditionally, we celebrate, appreciate and open our eyes to the gifts life brings. Fuel your goals, aspirations and desires by honoring your connection to life, love, nurturing and joy. Today, you do what lights you up, and be glad for it.
The solstice is a turning point, symbolic of endings and new beginnings, and with Mars so close to the sun, your intentions are magnified. Your thoughts and desires literally have wings. Let them fly!
Technical Note: In Astro lingo, the Sun is crossing the AP – the zero degree “Aries” point. What? The sun is nowhere near Aries. It’s 0 degrees of Cancer.
True, but all the Cardinal points of the zodiac, 0 Aries, 0 Cancer, 0 Libra and 0 Capricorn are collectively called the “Aries Point”. If you take a square piece of paper and fold it so each corner is in the same place, you’ll see why.
As the sun crosses the AP, it also triggers other powerful points (the Draconic Nodes) releasing energy to move you along the path. If you want to fast track your abundance, creativity, well-being, love and enlightenment, then focus your thoughts today!
Spot where the four 0 degree Cardinal signs are in your chart. Think greet, engage, give, receive.This is where you go on a Solstice Spree of enthusiasm and joy!Not sure where that is, comment and we’ll give you a hand.
ARIES: Get playful and feisty in the home. Engage with the family, go on a cleaning spree, clear the are with clan members and enjoy some good home cooking.
TAURUS: Start a new course of study, join a community project, get friendly with the written or spoken word. What do you want to say, teach, learn?
GEMINI: Indulge and cherish your core values, develop your talents and be MORE of who you are. Think about what supports your life and love it up.
CANCER: This is a new chapter in your life. Open the door to your dreams by being true to yourself. Let go of old patters and start something new. Something YOU.
LEO: Commune with your unconscious. Take time to reflect on your dreams. Create, walk in nature, engage with spirit, meditation, yoga, healing. Serve.
VIRGO: Hang out with your like-minded others. Their aims and goals are linked to yours and sharing aspirations will fuel them. We all succeed together!
LIBRA: Your career takes a turn for the new and improved, with a chance to carry more responsibility for much greater reward. Better do what you love. Now!
SCORPIO: Take your mind, body or spirit somewhere it’s never been before – meditate, travel, read, learn. You’re after new horizons, explorations and the unknown.
SAGITTARIUS: Intimacy and intensity lights a blaze of passion. Go ahead and take a leap in the dark. You’ll never know, if you don’t. Emotional risks pay off!
CAPRICORN: Partnerships of every kind ignite you desires, heating up energy and leading you places you didn’t know you wanted to go. That’s the plan. Go there.
AQUARIUS: A whole knew relationship to health and well being is waking up. You feel more, do more, create more, when you treat body like your very best friend.

LA – Tuesday – 7:06 am
NY – Tuesday – 10:06 am
LON – Tuesday – 3:06 pm
SYD – Wednesday – 00:06
The Sun, Moon, Mars and Eros are conjunct on this new moon, and if you didn’t know, I’ll tell you right now, Mars always heats things up; Eros adds more passion. Wherever this falls in your chart, you’ll have more energy, more spark, more vim and vigor. How to use this energy?
Quick tutorial on the transits of the Moon.
Quick tutorial on the transits of the Sun.
Quick tutorial on the transits of Mars.
Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the communications planet, messenger of the gods. This planet oversees ideas and the exchange of thoughts, intellectual expression and perception through the five senses and anything that circulates around the community be that home, neighborhood, country or planet.
Where we find the sign of the Twins in the natal horoscope is where we need to learn, develop our powers of observation and sharpen communication skills. We gather knowledge, multi-task and explore our natural curiosity and duality.With that area of the zodiac hosting the New Moon AND Mars (and Mercury) there is a strong focus that you don’t want to ignore.
Look for where you find 25 degrees of Gemini in your chart. That’s the hotspot for new intentions this month. Note also, the Sun, Moon and Mars will be quite close to the exact midpoint between expansive Jupiter at 19 Leo and tip the apple cart Uranus at 19 Aries. If you’re thinking the New Moon on the Ju/Ur midpoint will be a lightning rod for unexpected, welcome change, then you’re thinking right.
Gemini Reminds us that Thoughts are Things – Tune in to what you are thinking!
ARIES/New Moon in the 3rd house: On the heels of Mercury Retrograde, reevaluate all modes of communication beginning with internet server plan, hardware, software then leading to your own voice. How are you using it? Suggestions: Start a new course of study, join a community project, get friendly with the written or spoken word. Ask: What’s next?
TAURUS/New Moon in the 2nd house: Go over the taxes, current invoices and bills. No, it’s not boring; it’s smart and practical. Get your financial world in order, then reward yourself with sumptuous yum. Suggestions: Indulge in all things sensual like hot baths, long walks in nature, massage, fine food, enlightening vistas. Ask: What can you touch?
GEMINI/New Moon in the 1st house: Time to rethink the shop window, how you show yourself to the world outside. Is your wardrobe, hair style and way of being a match to the current you vibe? Suggestions: This is a new chapter in your life. Open the door to your dreams by showing up! Say YES! Ask:Are you who you want to be?
CANCER/New Moon in the 12th house: This moon is about letting your Ego step aside, for a moment, and allowing for deeper compassion to unfold without limits or judgments. Suggestions: Commune with your unconscious. Take time to record and reflect on your dreams, create unchecked and unedited, meditate and merge. Ask: are you deep in the well of your creative heart?
LEO/New Moon in the 11th house: The focus is on your goals for the future and who it is that travels with you on the journey. Comradery. Stop and check in the crowd! Suggestions: Remember friends and like-minded others are a source of inspiration and company. Hang out with your own kind. Ask: Am I with my clan?
VIRGO/New Moon in the 10th house: Social identity, mission, profession gets a thorough make-over as the career takes a turn for the better (in the ‘big picture’ long run). Think: more responsibility for greater rewards. Suggestions: You have to LOVE what you do to make it sing! Ask: Is your work your calling?
LIBRA/New Moon in the 9th house: New horizons and far away vistas bring insights. Epiphany moments. You gain even more perspective by going off the beaten path. Suggestions: Take your mind, body or spirit somewhere it’s never been before — meditate, travel, read, learn. Ask: Are you aiming high enough?
SCORPIO/New Moon in the 8th house: Revelations flood in when it comes to shared resources and co-creations. You are making big changes in this area of life and it all begins with respect and appreciations. Suggestions: Intimacy and intensity iare what will light your fire now. Go ahead and take an emotional risk. Ask: Have you been trying to play it safe?
SAGITTARIUS/New Moon in the 7th house: This lunation is all about re-visioning your relationships so they are an authentic match to you. You’ll be seeing much clearer at this time, helping you allow more in them and yourself. Suggestions: be honest with yourself about what you want. Ask: Do you let yourself be seeb? If not, why not?
CAPRICORN/New Moon in the 6th house: If you’ve been on auto-pilot, it’s time to stop and take charge of your vessel! ie make choices that resonate with who you are right now and where you want to go, starting with the little, day by day things. Suggestions: Put energy into the body, health and physical well-being. Ask: are you full of vim?
AQUARIUS/New Moon in the 5th house: This lunar event activates your child-like spirit of joy. Will you take the inner kiddo out to play? Suggestions: Creativity and healing springs from a well of romantic notions. Think dates, moves, dinners, walks under the stars. Entertain, and be entertained! Ask: Are you in love?
PISCES/New Moon in the 4th house: Time to sort out the schism between career goals/aspirations AND your home life sanctuary. Remember, you can honor both, if you’re honest about how you feel. Suggestions: Clean the house, wash the windows, clear the air, especially with family and siblings. Ask: Are you happy?

The New Moon in Taurus is powerfully linked to Eros (passion), Mars (assertive energy) and Saturn (acuity). But things may not launch in a flash. It’s more like a slow burn, gradual, thoughtful, sustaining. In esoteric astrology there are four ‘serpent’ signs of transformation. Taurus is the first of them, the coiled up serpent energy that appears to be sleeping . . . until it awakens! Be ready for potent new beginnings.
NEW MOON @26 TAURUS
LA. – Sunday 9:13 pm
NY – Monday 12:13 am
LON – Monday 05:13 am
SYD – Monday 2:13 pm
Until then, it’s the dark moon and Mercury is at a standstill, preparing to turn retrograde. The more you rest, muse, reflect and nurture, between now and the NM, the better. Once you spring forward, remember, it’s a time to rethink ideas and discover their source. Are they a true core value, or are you just going along for the ride? You decide, then prepave this time with your best, most cherished intentions.
Again, nothing happens in a rush, so settle in to a steady, measured progress, especially in the area of life described by the house of the New Moon. (Your house with 26 degrees of Taurus.)
ARIES: The new moon highlights your second house of core values and sense of ‘wealth’. What is it, inner and outer, that makes your feel secure? Your ruler Mars in Gemini is all about walking the talk. Find a balance between structure and spontaneity.
TAURUS: This is your new moon, the one that lights up all four corners of your life, Self-expression, home, career and partnership. It’s the perfect time to set new intentions, putting energy into YOU and what you want to create. What’s getting a revamp?
GEMINI: Taurus is your natural house of dreams and immersion in the collective. It’s a time of synchronicity, symbols and serendipitous connections. You will be generating new enthusiasm for a breakout solar year ahead. Muse, and create.
CANCER: Time to indulge in connections, friendships and links with like minded others. This energy wants tangible results so remember the fortune cookie adage – to have a friend, be a friend. It’s your turn to give to the group. Participate!
LEO: A month of public appearances, spotlight attention and new developments when it comes to your career, mission or profession. The key question is, are you doing what you love? The answer will define the rest of the year! Make changes where necessary.
VIRGO: Time to get out of your head, or the house, job, obligations and explore a new world. You are primed to taste, touch and smell new horizons, view the sights and appreciate every nuance. Travel, explore, expand. The world is waiting for you.
LIBRA: Joint partnerships, especially where finances are involved, get a revamp. You decide how you want this to go, but it’s time to get practical and stop relying on outmoded biz models for shared revenue. Aim your sights higher and more will come.
SCORPIO: One of your favorite new moons, Taurus puts the spotlight on relationship, especially sex and intimacy. No matter what is, or is not, happening in your life now, you take a moment to imagine it the way you want it to be. And so it begins . . .
SAGITTARIUS: All the taken for granted things of the household, studio, office, your pets, plants and plans, include gym and dietary wellbeing, are ready for new energy and attention. You put your mind to the ‘little things’ to make sweeping changes. Now!
CAPRICORN: A childlike creative impulse washes over you, infusing all you touch with smiles and laughter. Don’t be embarrassed! It’s natural for you to play right now. Set aside some time for fun, carefree expenditure of energy. You won’t regret it.
AQUARIUS: This new moon is your cue to put attention inward, into the home, family and sense of emotional ground and stability. Evaluate, appreciate and make repairs where necessary. This sets the stage for fabulous results. Trust the process.
PISCES: The new moon in your communications sector has you translating ethereal notions and honing them down to practical affirmations. i.e., cut to the chase: Your words are powerful creators of your future. Say what you mean; love what you say.

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!

The Merry Month of May swings into action with the Full Moon in Scorpio on the 3rd/4th. It has a bit of a sting! Think of it as a powerhouse time of transformation where you face inner landscapes of the past an have the choice to reignite or release. Anger could be involved, which is your personal, internal body guard. Remember that. You may not need quite so much protection anymore.
This is a passionate moon, one that could propel you over perceived obstacles, or have you brooding about them. You decide. Moon is sextile ruling Pluto, opposite ruling Mars. You have untold creative power and energy. Use it as you will.
Technical Note: The fixed full moon is in the second decanate of Scorpio, which is Pisces, linking the energy of Mars/Pluto (Scorpio rulers) and Jupiter/Neptune (Pisces rulers). With a T-Square between Sun, Moon and Jupiter, and the trine to Neptune added into the mix, we are definitely looking at an emotional ride. As my friend Mystic Medusa always says, you can go haute Pisces or Lo Pisces, and for this lunar event, it couldn’t be more true. Decide if you want to be compassionate or conniving before hand, and stick to it! This FM also activates the Uranus-Pluto square, still in close orb. The watch word is change.
Full Moon @13 Scorpio May 3rd/4th
LA – Sunday – 08:43 pm
NY – Sunday – 11:43 pm
LON – Monday – 04:43am
SYD – Sunday – 01:43 pm
On the 7th, Venus moves into Cancer and trines Neptune, an aspect that brings care, empathy and gentle willingness to nurture. Most likely this will soften the edges of the Full Moon but don’t mistake kindness for weakness. This is a cardinal sign, with a strong emotional push. Venus here wants to take actions, ones that will enhance a sense of clan and security. It’s a perfect time to tune into your ideas of family, love and caring. Are you fulfilled, or needing something more, or different?
Mars into Gemini on the 11th is a flirty, vivacious, playful energy, though it’s honed into a serious point as it opposes Saturn, and activates the Saturn – Neptune square. This means there’s a drive to release old, crystallized patterns, and the ability to make leaping creative change, if we look inward. Without self awareness, this laser focus can be pointed at others. If you find yourself listing people’s faults left, right and center, ask what that list has to do with you.
Remember, like attracts like. Use that knowledge to flow inspired action. This is a wonderful opportunity to “be the better person.” It seems like a lot of homework to do, all in the first two weeks but if you put awareness on your actions and desires and the inner drives that motivate them, you’ll find the Mercury Retrograde period a breeze.
New Moon in Taurus on the 17th, opposite Saturn has a thoughtful vibe. If you are ready to pitch a well organized project or idea that you have build solid from the ground up and discussed in detail prior, excellent. But if you’re about to shoot from the hip, or go in blind, hit the pause button. Success comes with a well thought out plan. See Monthly New Moon scopes for tips (up by the 15th).
Mercury turns Rx on the 18th in the home sign of Gemini. You want to use this energy to revisit your old stories. What is it you keep telling yourself about your life? Is it helpful or unhelpful? If it’s the latter, take time to release the old pattern and script yourself a NEW STORY about whatever’s not going right. Home, family, love, money, career? Tell a new story. No time could be better for this exercise than the Mercury Rx period, between May 18th and June 11th. Rethink, rewrite, restore.
Technical Note: Go to the house(s) where Mercury is Rx and focus your review and renew practice there. Jeannette Maw, the Good Vibe Coach has tips for Story Crafting in Manifesting. It’s a fabulous practice, especially for the time of Mercury Rx.
Sun into Gemini on the 21st is more AIR – bright, communicative, flexible and flirtatious energy, though again, it’s coming off an opposition to Saturn and activating the Saturn – Neptune square. If you are working on a long-term project that lights you up, and feeds your creative muse, this could be a time of fresh input and help out of the blue. If you’re slaving away in a job you don’t like or a relationship that feels unfulfilled, the shift to Gemini will be the ray of light in the pigsty. If so, USE it to plan your healthy, optimistic change. You have a choice, and that begins by thinking yourself up a better story.
The month winds down with Mercury Rx on Sun and Mars, which might feel like both the tortoise and the hare have fallen asleep. Don’t panic; chill. This in not the time to measure or weigh anything up. Don’t look at states, or check emails, phone messages or answering machines. Breathe. Relax. Find ease. The egg will hatch if you keep incubating. Cracking it early isn’t going to help the cause.
Patience in the time of Gemini, everyone!
I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments as the month unfolds. Let’s work on those new stories!

Astro-LOA Flash: Full Moon in Virgo brings Earth and stabilization to an intense month of energy. If you’ve been feeling chaotic and on the edge, now is the time to bring more ritual into your daily routine, while adding heart, and creative play. You want to appreciate what is working, allow for compassion and reverence for all life, have eyes for the gifts!
Performing ritual is in our blood. It’s archetypal, meaning it’s a connecting principle found in all cultures, in all places and all times. Recent studies have shown even simple rituals can be extremely effective in promoting a greater sense of well being. What rituals are you practicing? Are they supportive or . . .?
FULL MOON @14 VIRGO March 5/6
LA – Thursday – 10:06 am
NY – Thursday – 1:06 pm
LON – Thursday – 6:06 pm
SYD – Friday – 5:06 am
Virgo stand(s) for instrumentation, implementation and technical competence. – Dennis Elwell.
It is about skill development, and the rituals in life that are constantly creating and re-creating our experience of reality. This full moon is in the Capricorn Decan, adding more grounding, and healthy ambition. Ruling Saturn is well placed with a trine to Mars in Aries. If you are ready to move forward with a long dreamed of project, now’s the time to giddy up!
With the Neptune-sun conjunction in Pisces, think – ritual magic, illumination, initiation and awareness! You recognize habits that no longer serve you and start creating ones that make life better.
Read your ‘solar houses’ below (sun sign), and the house where you find 14 degrees Virgo (Ascendant sign).
ARIES/6th house: The Full Moon in your house of health is the perfect time to let go of unsupported habits in the realm of diet, exercise and daily ritual. Think of your body as your best friend. What do you feed her? How do you keep her fit and active? When do you let her rest? Play? Explore? Connection?
TAURUS/ 5th house: The creative and playful sphere of the heart is awakened at this Full Moon. Ask what rituals do you have in place around your artistic expression? Is it haphazard, random or so strict there’s no room to breathe? Set into motion some healthy ways to connect to your inner child. Make them fun!
GEMINI/ 4th house: The Full Moon shines on your home, family and emotional security sector. What are you doing to feather your nest, metaphorically and literally? Ask how ritual can improve this area of life. Regular family dinners? Time with rels that could use your expertise? Renewed Feng Shui in the home? Go big!
CANCER/ 3rd house: This is the perfect time to create new habits around self-talk, verbal communication and written or spoken expression, teaching and leaning. Notice how you connection socially around familiar haunts then start putting more conscious awareness on your thoughts. Remember, they do become things!
LEO/ 2nd house: Full Moon amps up your house of money, a representation of your inner core values and self-esteem. This is excellent for boosting feelings of self-worth and setting in place new habits of care, respect and generosity. Let go the critical and embrace the abundance of non-judgment. So freeing!
VIRGO/first house: This is your ‘birthday’ Full Moon and ideal for fueling any new project that has your ‘heart’s desire’ in it. Most likely opportunities are rolling in. You get to pick your favorite and lavish it with positive energy. The trick is to not become totally obsessed. Start a habit of balance in everything you do.
LIBRA/ 12th house: The Full Moon in Virgo is your ‘Dream Moon’ as it activates your unconscious mind. Up comes all the buried treasures in the form of inspiration, epiphanies, synchronicities and head over heels love interests. Treat this like a preview of coming attractions. Nurture, respect, revel and enjoy!
SCORPIO/ 11th house: The Full Moon in the house of friends is a wonderful opportunity to bring healthy habits of connection into being. Your powers of discernment and leadership are heightened, helping you know intuitively which birds of a feather you want to flock with. Remember, to have a friend, be a friend. Spend some time there!
SAGITTARIUS/ 10th house: Attention to detail and a feeling of new awareness lights up your career sector. This is where you put strong healthy habits into place. If you’ve been overworking, pull back. If it’s been hard to focus, you practice new skills. As support and opportunities arrive, create the perfect combination of work and play.
CAPRICORN/ 9th house: This is your ‘Exploration Moon’ as a thirst for the unknown activates every cell in your body. What you thought was a closed door, a limitation or block, opens wide and you walk on through. The habit of open-mindedness can be developed now with very little effort. Easy breezy enlightenment time!
AQUARIUS/ 8th house: The Virgo Full Moon is a chalice of overflowing opportunity where you create new habits around shared resources. This means anything from finances, borrowed or loaned, creative projects and even intimate, erotic expression can take on new meaning in your life. Think Renaissance!
PISCES/ 7th house: This is your ‘Relationship Moon’ where you can examine your personal one-to-ones and put into place more supportive, loving and caring habits. Old unconscious behaviors dissolve, replaced by mutual respect and reverence for life with another. Boundaries improve creating more room for unconditional love.
It takes 21 days to start a new habit. Let’s set fabulous intentions now!
Have a wonderful Full Moon everyone! xKim

Astro-LOA Flash – Psyche and Eros conjunct @21 Pisces within ear shot of Venus and Mars conjunct!
Internally, we may feel ready to meet a more profound level of relating, to ourselves and to others. This can manifest as a projection of that readiness onto others. ie, it can manifest in red hot love.
Psyche longs for a sense of completion through the unity of all life. This is were we are telepathic, intuitive and forever linked with everything, everywhere, all the time.
Psyche binds us to the collective unconscious where we dip into the pool of creativity, taste the essence of spiritual awareness and bond with others of our tribe. When she approaches Eros, the bonding is of such a magnitude that we recognize, often for the first time, our infinite capacity to love.
It can be that profound.
This transit may correspond to sudden and super hot love unions, the meeting of a soul mate (our Self as others), the initiation of a creative project or the birth of a child. However it comes, it always takes our breath away. Phew!
This post might seem timely, but it’s just a fluke that it coincides with the celebration of St. Valentine’s Day.
The conjunctions have little to do with Saints, chocolate or paper card consumption perpetuated for commercial gain.
Actually, there could be a link to chocolate, so scratch that, but this isn’t about Valentine’s Day, it’s about experiencing and expression passion a la Eros, Venus, Psyche and Mars.
Have you read the myth of Psyche and Eros? Talk about an exposé on desire.
In pursuing (Eros), we pursue our greatest desire. Yet, after all, we live in ignorance of how it will approach. We can only listen, and pray, for the sounds of Eros’ soft, quivering wings. -Harriot Eisman (1995) The Other Loveliness, PARABOLA, The Magazine of Myth and Tradition, Vol. XX, No. 4.
Passion and desire here mean heart (oh gosh, another V day connection) and if you are laboring after a cause – relationship, job, career, education, creative pitch, you-name-it, and your heart isn’t there, this upcoming transit is going to slam on the breaks, whiplash and all. It’s a ‘get real’ shake up you will not soon forget.
But is it a time to fall in love? Let’s think about that. Richart Roberts has an interesting take, and it isn’t new. Basically, we fall in love with ourselves.
When we fall in love, we shoot out an arrow of psychic energy from the quiver of our unconscious. When this energy finds a person worthy of our projection (“worthy of our love”) then the energy flies back to us like one of Eros’ arrows and we are zapped. But it is not the quality of the other person who has made us fall in love, but the quantity of psychic energy projected by ourselves. Richard Roberts
If this is true, then let’s use this time to put awareness on our heart’s desires and see where they are driving us, where they have changed and where we are willing and open, ready to expand our consciousness and embrace empowered passion.
Think of the conjunction as potent and yes, but the big headline is authentic – authentic desires that resonate with core values, drives, connections, relationships . . . It’s a crazy level passion, and you may get a shock to discover what you thought was lighting you up is no longer, but something new has taken its place.
Where you find this conjunction in your chart is where you tune in to what you want to experience. You get current! If it’s in your 7th house then discover the core of your committed partnership drives. If it’s in your 2nd, what talents and resources do you want to develop? In your 9th, check your beliefs, and any plans to travel, or pursue a higher degree. Yes, you can fall head over heels in this area of life, triggered by the experience of your own psychic energy mirrored back to you.
What to do?
Enjoy the hell out of it!
Check the degrees of Pisces and Aries involved, and where they fall in your chart. Leveraging this energy begins with knowing a) where we are at now and b) where we would like to be. Once we know this, we can c) close the gap and experience the passion of the heart without reserve, or resistance.
“The Gap is the space between where you are now and where you want to be. If you know what you want but don’t have it yet, you’re in the gap. Getting what you want is just a matter of closing that gap – which means aligning vibrationally with what you want.” -Jeannette Maw. Read more from Jeannette here!
I give everything a 10 degree orb, at least, so this connection is on for months. Note: Mars/Venus is exact on the Zero Degree Aries Point. Also, the 14th of Feb has the sun conjunct Psyche exact, so tune in, ask higher guidance what you really feel in your heart and open to the answer. It will come in remarkable, spectacular ways.
I’d love to hear where this is happening for you and what you experience!
Happy Eros and Psyche conjunction. Live it up!

At the end of this course you will hold in your hands a personalized Rx to activate your sense of empowerment, purpose and direction in life. You’ll also have your Astro-empowerment crystal, synched to your horoscope, to enhance the insights and epiphanies you’ve gained.
Each week has a main topic and will be presented in a recorded group call for you to download and listen to. (These discussion calls are recorded if you can’t make the live call.) You’ll also receive PDF downloads, video tutorials, and have access to the Q&A discussion forum. Includes ‘Hands On’ sessions with student charts.

Week #4 – Releasing Resistance; Embracing Excitement Consciously or unconsciously, all of us can resist our greatest potential, and astrology and the law of attraction are powerful indicators to identify where we ‘hide’ our path to success, and why. This week identifies any denial, releases resistance and amps up your greatest self-awareness! You will discover where your asteroid ‘Karma’ is, what it means and the reason certain goals and ideas excite you so much.
Week #5 – Making Choices When the Time is Right Often the path to Purpose, Path and Power is paved with choices. Which way do we go?

On the eve of the New Year 2015, I thought it would be fun to hit the highlights and get us lined up to Pre-Pave the most fabulous year ever. I also wanted a go-to post to refer back to over the year, and dial in on the best way to set 2015 intentions!
Are you with me?
Over at GVA, Jeannette Maw and I will be doing a 12 month call series to explore these highlights deeper – Astro-Empower 2015 for GVA Circle Members. You can join us online, or dial in on the day. Everyone welcome.
Highlights of 2015
* The Grand Cardinal Cross ie Uranus square Pluto, Nodes and Luminary activation
This is basically the Uranus/Pluto square that has been in orb since 2010. It makes it’s final exact conjunction in MARCH. It may be helpful to look back over the last 5 years, especially checking in with early 2012, April/May 2013 and January 3/4, 2015 for insights into what’s been challenged, changed and evolved. They key here is to transform, from the inside out. If you are pointing the finger at someone else, or a situation(s), ask what it might have to do with you. This is your primary purpose in 2015, to address ‘where’ this aspect (and the transiting nodes) are activating your chart. If you aren’t sure, ask in the comments and we’ll help you discover it.
The Uranus/Pluto square, what my friend Mystic Medusa calls the Zap-Zone, is in orb all year, triggered to a peak on the following dates:
* Jan 4th, 2015: Full Moon at 14 Cancer
* Mar 16, 2015 – FINAL Uranus square Pluto 16 Aries/Capricorn
* Apr 4, 2014 – Full Moon Eclipse 14 Aries
* Apr 15, 2015 – Icarus conjunct Uranus 16 Aries
* Jul 15th, 2015: New Moon at 23 degrees Cancer
* Mercury Rx Cycles 2015
Mercury the trickster, planet of communication, messenger of the gods, is retrograde three times in 2015. This is like the 4 of Swords in the Tarot where we pause, slow down and rethink, reconsider, review and reevaluate ideas, feelings, plans and promises, particularly in the area of life indicated by the zodiac degrees. Check them out.
Here is a list of the times/degrees (EST – thank you Cafe Astrology)
* Chinese New Year of the Goat – February 18/19, 2015
This is a very powerful New Moon and ‘changing of the guardians’.
LA – Feb 18 – 3:47 pm
NY – Feb 18 – 6:47 pm
Lon – -Feb 18 – 11:47 pm
Syd – – Feb 19 – 10:47 pm
We’ll do a call on this topic in February for sure!
* Mars-Venus and Eros-Psyche in Pisces with Neptune and Chrion and over the Zero Degree Aries Point!
A line up like this doesn’t happen every year. The last one may not have even been in your lifetime!
You’ll want to tune into your powers of attraction, passion and deepest desires where you find 0 Pisces to 0 Aries in your chart. Here’s the Ephemeris:
* The Season of the Eclipses
* March 20 – New Moon Eclipse @29 Pisces – This is the last degree of the last sign. Ask, “What will I expiate?” You give something back to the gods today.
* April 4 – Full Moon Eclipse @14 Libra – Activation of the Uranus – Pluto square. You get to see what is left to process. In @technicolor.
* September 13 – New Moon Eclipse @20 Virgo – Do the de-clutter of the year.
September 27 – Full Moon Eclipse @4 Aries – a full on physical body – love – check- in!
* Venus Rx in 2015
Periodically, the Synodic cycle has Venus turning retrograde once every 18 months or so. We are in for another one this year, a chance to reflect on our relationships, values, self-worth and esthetics.
Active from June to October, you’ll want to pre-pave this, big time! Look at your chart to find the range of degrees between 14 Leo and 0 Virgo. That is the house(s) you want to activate and immerse in for the best results.
More on this when the time comes.
* Jupiter in Leo and Virgo
Jupiter as an astrological archetype is know as the ‘Greater Benefic‘ It’s the largest planet in our solar system and is symbolic of large scale experiences – big wins, big times, big love. You get the picture.
Jupiter is optimistic, popular, expansive and generous. Some call him the ‘Cosmic Santa Clause’ (others reserve that title for Neptune) but all agree, Jupiter lifts our hopes, helps us aim high and shows us new horizons.
But what’s really going on when we experience this energy is we begin to believe in ourselves. That’s what makes it happen!
The power of the vibrations of confidence, commitment and belief . . . can turn dark horses into champions, long shots into heroes and underdogs into top dogs. –Jeannette Maw
Confidence means you believe in yourself and where Jupiter changes signs, it symbolizes where we can amp up that belief and make things bigger! Check where Jupiter is transiting in late Leo / early Virgo and put your focus there in 2015!
* Saturn in and out of Scorpio
As Saturn, the planet of maturity, form, structure and ‘reality building’ glides into the sign of Sagittarius, we can get quite visionary, but he doesn’t stay there for long. From June to September 2015, Saturn is back into the tail end of Scorpio. You know, the one with the sting.
This is a powerful symbol of expansion, inner and outer, supporting awareness and releasing resistance in all it’s forms. In other words, dropping the deliberate creator denial. How? One way is to listening to the messages via synchronicity, body talk, projection, events and dreams. More on that in the June GVA call. All welcome to join in.
Here’s to a happy, empowered and thrilling New Year. (check out a quick guide from Jeannette Maw for setting those intentions now.
Thank you for all your support and good wishes.
Happy 2015, Love and Light,
