Forward Motion

Finally!  Mercury retrograde is coming to a close and will station direct on October 2 at 5:07 AM.  Technology glitches and communications will begin to right themselves.  However, Mercury isn’t the only planet stationing direct this week.  Pluto will station direct on October 8 at 5:56 pm.
 
For the past few weeks, everything has felt like it’s been at a standstill while you’ve been revisited from your past.  What did your past reveal to you?  Are you headed in a new direction or are you still unhappy with the direction that your life has taken?  If you’re still not sure, don’t worry.  When the planets station either retrograde or direct, the energy becomes more intense. 
 
The North Node in Taurus is still asking you to grow and will be until July 2023.  Change is afoot and sometimes no matter how much you fight it, it’s easier to just go with the flow.  You won’t always know how things will turn out when you start them.  Sometimes you just have to take a chance. 
 
Mercury is back in Virgo until October 10.  Mercury is being analytical and practical right now.  Mercury doesn’t want to make any mistakes.  But life is all about the mistakes.  It’s how you handle them, that matters.
 
Pluto has been retrograde since April 29, 2022.  Pluto is the underworld or the shadow, but it’s also the power of transformation.  It’s how you can become empowered in your life.  Pluto in Capricorn has been changing the structures of your world and the world around you.  Pluto moved into Capricorn in November 2008 and will give you a sneak peek from March 24, 2023 to June 12, 2023 of Pluto in Aquarius.  It will enter Aquarius for an extended stay on September 3, 2024.  The collective is headed into these final degrees of Pluto in Capricorn.  It’s important that you lay the foundation now for the next phase of your life. 
 
You’re being pushed to make progress.  It’s time to start taking steps.  You have the option to go one step at a time, but it’s time for forward motion.

Helping Hand

The world can change overnight.  You may think you know your life's direction and then something happens.  Something that you knew might happen but didn’t see coming.  It’s always nice in those moments to have someone beside you holding your hand.
 
The Venusian energy of Libra is being felt.  Even though Mercury has retrograded back into the sign of Virgo, Venus herself is moving into the sign of Libra on September 29 at 3:49 am.  The Sun in Libra and Venus in Libra are also making their presence known in Opposition to Jupiter in Aries.  The Sun Opposes Jupiter in Aries on September 26 at 3:33 pm and Venus in Libra Opposes Jupiter in Aries on October 1 at 2:12 pm. 
 
What is important?  Is it the relationship to others or to the self?  You can’t do it all alone.  For some, it may seem like it’s all about the self.  Aries is the I AM.  Who are you?  But Libra is the other.  You cannot exist in life as a solitary being.  Sometimes you have to reach out.  This is one of those times.  Whether it’s to ask for yourself or to give help to others, or both.  Life means more with relationships in it. Who do you want to be?  How do you want to be known?  With these oppositions, we’re being nudged to remember the boundary between the two.  You can help others without giving up who you are.  You can be yourself without having to separate yourself from the world. 
 
When you have the opportunity, it’s important to lend a hand.  The world needs more kindness.  Each one of us needs a little help now and then.  Accept it and give it when you can.

Time for Balance

The Sun will be entering the sign of Libra on September 22 at 9:04 pm.  It’s time to reflect inwards and find balance as the seasons change.
 
The Autumn Equinox falls on the day when the Sun moves into Libra.  It is also the point where sunrise and sunset are separated by exactly 12 hours.  Daylight will start to decrease and you will begin preparing for the winter months here in the northern hemisphere.  In times past, it was a time to reflect on the harvest and what you had accomplished.  What did you still need to do before the cold set in?  Your perspective is about to change.  It will no longer be a time of planting and harvesting, but hibernating.  Animals still do it today.  You would determine what you needed to survive during the winter.  You spent the majority of the year preparing for this upcoming season.  You still have time to prepare.
 
Times have changed.  Our food source no longer follows the same models that it once did, but these ancient systems can provide you with clues for what you will begin to experience. A time for reflection.  What do you still need to modify so that you can bring more balance into your life?  Libra is all about relationships as well.  Are your relationships in balance?  What can you do to bring more peace, love, and harmony into your world?   The time to explore the darkness of the winter months is coming, but for now, you still have time to initiate changes and modify what you’ve been working on.  What do you still need to do to accomplish your goals? 
 
Mercury is still going retrograde in Libra.  Mercury in Libra will be opposing Jupiter in Aries on September 18 at 6:34 pm and will be Conjunct the Sun in Libra on September 23 at 2:50 am, a few hours after the Sun moves into Libra.  Venusian values will take center stage and ask us to look at what we love.  Do you love the direction that you’re headed in?  If not, this is the time to learn a new perspective and possibly make a change.
 
You need balance in order to move forward in life.  Life can’t be all work, no play, or all play and no work.  There are two sides to every coin.  If your life is too skewed in one direction, this is the time to right the ship and find balance.

Make Sure To Think

Make sure to think before you act this week, especially on September 2, when Mercury in Libra Opposes Jupiter in Aries at 6;49 pm.
 
Mercury in Libra would rather not make a decision and Jupiter in Aries has a tendency to act impulsively and think about the consequences later on.  Because of these placements, it’s even more important than normal to take some time before responding. 
 
There’s a tendency in the world today to act first and ask questions later, but what if this is one of those times where you should do the opposite?  The world around you is changing and you are meant to change with it.  Maybe the way that you think and act is meant to change along with it.  This point of Mercury in Libra, will be revisited 2 more times over the coming weeks because Mercury is going retrograde on September 9.  Are you noticing any issues that are coming to the surface?  This could be part of your Mercury retrograde story this season.
 
Your stories provide you with clues about what you’re meant to be working on right now.  There’s your own personal story in addition to the collective communities’ story.  Those two stories may tie closely together or they could be completely different, but if you look at the world around you, you may see that people have a tendency to act impulsively, especially on social media.  People will comment with whatever comes into their head whether or not they have all the facts. 
 
Thinking about something before reacting doesn’t make you weak, it’s part of what helps you to become a more enlightened person.  To see whether what someone else is saying has any truth or is it triggering you in the moment?  Why is what that person is saying triggering you?  Can you do anything to change the story?  Make sure that you think before responding this week, it could save you from having some major headaches later.

Aftershocks

Wow!  Last week may have been an intense one, but the energy hasn’t dissipated.  You’re still being challenged this week with some aspects.
 
Mars in Taurus will be Square Saturn in Aquarius on August 7 at 12:57 pm.  Mars is feeling frustrated by Saturn’s restrictiveness.  It can also feel overwhelmed at times by all the obstacles that seem to be thrown in its way.
 
Venus in Cancer is Opposite Pluto in Capricorn on August 19 at 1:18 am.  A lot of feelings have been coming to the surface over the last weeks or even months.  These aren’t feelings or issues that should be brushed aside.  They are leading you in a new direction.  If you ignore these revelations, it can lead to even more disruptive energy.  Relationships are intensifying. Things aren’t meant to be the same when Pluto is done with it.
 
The Sun in Leo is getting into the Uranus in Taurus action with a Square on August 11 at 5:53 am.  The Sun is shining a spotlight on Uranus’ growing impatience with the status quo.  It’s time to break free and allow the revelations to come to light. 
 
Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto aspects can seemingly change the world as you know it and have done it over the last few years.  Big reveals have come to light and you can’t go backward.  It’s time to be present and see what is meant to unfold for you.  You may want to know the future and especially with the energy in Taurus, control what that future looks like, but it’s just not possible.    
 
You are being guided in a new direction.  It may not always feel that way.  It’s easy to question what’s going on and why hasn’t it happened.  You did exactly what you were supposed to and look where you are.  Just remember it's not over yet.  You're still in the shake-up and things haven’t begun to settle back down.  Just be patient and do your best to go with the flow and deal with the repercussions.
 
What is being revealed?  Let me know.  Do you want to know more, click here to book a discovery session or an appointment. 

Breakdown to Breakthrough

Do you feel the momentum building?  You can feel it in the air around you.  Uranus in Taurus has been conjunct the North Node in Taurus for the last few weeks, but on August 1 at 4:53 pm, Mars in Taurus will conjunct this same point.
 
Uranus is the planet of awakening and revolution and the North Node is a point that you’re working towards.  Mars is the planet of action and activation.  Mars, Uranus, and the North Node are all in the sign of Taurus, a fixed sign that is extremely resistant to change but is seeking security, stability, comfort, and practicality. 
 
If you’ve been resistant to change, this may be the point where you feel like you have no choice, but to change.  When the North Node is involved in a chart, it can feel like a fated moment.  You have no other option, but to go in this new direction.  While Taurus is a fixed sign and is resistant to change, it is also one of growth.  Taurus season is when the seeds that were planted start coming to life.
 
The last two years, you’ve spent a lot of time envisioning a new future and planting the seeds for what you want to come.  Now is the time, ready or not, here it comes.  If you’ve been doing the work, you will begin to see the sprouts start to come out.  If you’ve been resistant, then it’s time for some unpredictability.  Taurus is a fixed sign, so it loves control, but the more you try and control something, the more unstable it can become.
 
Expect some surprises this week.  Whether you’re ready or not, you’re moving in a new direction.  Some things have to break down so that a breakthrough can occur.  This is that moment.  Do you have the breakdown during the earthquake or as part of the aftershocks?  Only time will tell. 
 
Try to move with the change.  It can be a challenge, especially in the moment.  Take a deep breath.  It’s time for you to grow and growth can be exhausting. Just look at children and how much they rest during a growth spurt.  Use this as your model for the week.  Try and take a time out if possible.  Remove yourself from the chaos that may be around you and search for clarity.  It’s there if you take the time to look.

Why Isn’t It Happening?

You’ve probably been working on getting some clarity and trying to determine what path you’re going to take forward.  You may quit your job and start down a new path, but things don’t seem to be turning out quite the way you expected.  On July 26 at 2:13 am Mercury in Leo is going to be square Mars in Taurus and your impatience is going to begin to show if it hasn’t already.
 
You have created a timetable and a picture in your head.  This is what should happen and this is when it will happen.  The universe doesn’t work that way.  You can follow all of the signs and still want to know what is happening?  It’s incredibly frustrating, but it’s also revealing something.  The reveal, when it happens, will take you in an unexpected direction.
 
Be careful of the words that are spoken during this time.  They can be made impulsively and may only show part of the picture, but words once said can’t be taken back.  These words could create some controversy as a result. 
 
Mercury is going to square Uranus in Taurus a few days later on July 28 at 5:16 pm.  Mercury is ready to start scheming and Uranus in Taurus is looking to cause some drama and is reaching the point where it may just want to start over and burn it all to the ground.  Uranus is looking to create something unexpected and it may just come out of those ashes. 
 
It’s going to be a fast-paced week with some twists and turns.  Fire and Earth don’t get along particularly well, so pay attention.  Brace yourself for the ride.  It could be an enlightening one.

Mind Games

I don’t know about you, but I’m not a fan of mind games and right now, it feels like you’re involved in one great big mind game with the universe.  Mercury in Cancer is opposite Pluto in Capricorn on July 18 at 3:01 am.  And the Sun is opposite Pluto in Capricorn on July 19 at 9:39 pm.  The good news is that Mercury will enter Leo on July 19 at 8:35 pm and start to provide you with some mental clarity.
 
But for now, mind games are all around.  It would be easier if people could just come out and say what they’re thinking, but that’s not the case for most people.  The way each person communicates is different.  Some of us skate across the surface, just say whatever comes into our heads, or dives deep and wants to uncover every psychological element of what you said.
 
However, mind games can make even the most mundane of communication challenging.  Not only are you having to figure out why they said, or did what they did, but why.  Is there an underlying element to their words?  With Pluto involved, there’s always a wound or an opportunity for transformation and rebirth, but you have to deal with the wound first.  So before you get too frustrated or angry, try to look at the situation for a different perspective.  Why did that happen?  Does it have to do with you, or does it have to do with them?  What can you learn from this moment?  
 
Once Mercury moves into Leo, things will become clear and then you can move forward, but until then, try and fit the pieces together.  You’re being shown this mind game for a reason.  Mind games are never easy, but they provide us with an opportunity if you can take a time out and look at it from a different perspective.

Have You Been Doing The Work?

Have you been growing?  If you have, then this week should help you to battle whatever obstacles are standing in your way and reach new levels.  If you haven’t then you may experience some internal power struggles.
 
Mars in Aries is going to be Square Pluto in Capricorn on July 1, 2022 at 10:14 pm.  Mars in Aries is pushing the structures that you’ve been forced to confront with Pluto in Capricorn.  Those structures have been crumbling.  Things are no longer what they once were and there is no going back.  You’re in a new era and it’s time to accept that it’s different.  You’re different.
 
The energy wants you to change, it’s demanding change.  With this energy, you could push yourself a little too hard, so watch out for that dynamic, but it’s time.  Mercury has told you the secrets that you need to know so that you can make changes and move ahead.  That time for change is now. 
 
Change is never easy, especially when it feels like it’s been forced upon you.  It’s easier when you have a choice.  You always have a choice, but that doesn’t mean the energy isn’t going to have a say in the direction you take.  If you’re making a choice that the universe no longer agrees with, it will make it more and more difficult for you to make the same decision.  If you’re still not getting it, you could reach a precipice point and the universe will make a different decision for you.  We’ve all been there, getting fired from a job was one of mine.
 
I couldn’t see what the universe wanted me to see.  It was time for me to take a different path in my life.  It was giving me obstacles, but I kept finding a way around it.  The termination from my job was the universe forcing me to look at my choices and make a new one. 
 
It could be time for a new choice or a new path, but watch out for the internal struggles.  Those struggles may be telling you something you don’t want to hear, but it could lead you in the right direction.
 
What internal struggles are you experiencing? Let me know. Do you want to know more, click here to book a discovery session or an appointment.

Time For Yourself

It’s time for big shifts this coming week.   The Summer Solstice occurs on June 21, the longest day of the year and the official beginning of summer, plus the Sun moves into the sign of Cancer at 5:14 am EST.
 
Around the world, rituals are still performed to welcome the Summer Solstice.  These rituals are meant to thank the sun for its continuing to bring light and to request continued abundance. 
 
Cancer season represents a time of nurturing and sensitivity.  It’s the time of year when you might take time off and maybe even do something for yourself and not just go go go.  School is out for the summer and there’s some time for flexibility in your schedule.
 
Venus will enter Gemini the next day on June 22 at 8:34 pm EST.  She will move out of a sign that she rules into one that is all about communication and being social.  Maybe it’s time for spending some time with your loved ones, friends and family. 
 
A good question to ask yourself this Cancer season, is what can you do for yourself?  It’s so easy to focus all your attention on the people around you and lose track of what you need.  Cancer is also known to sacrifice itself for the needs of others.  Don’t lose yourself in the process.  It’s way too easy to let that happen.
 
Venus in Gemini can be inquisitive and searching.  If you’re looking to change things up, this can be a great time.  Cancer is willing to start something new and Gemini is adaptable.  You can take all the secrets that have been revealed and start to implement some inner growth.
