The first half of September has us wanting to ‘express’ ourselves! The Sun is very prominent from 2nd September through the Full Moon in Pisces on 13/14 September @ 9:34 pm PDT. September starts off with us thinking differently, maybe even getting downloads from the Universe- our thoughts change- Mercury trine Uranus. We have the Sun conjunct Mercury in Virgo on 3rd September that asks: How can I use this new way of thinking? Venus opposition Neptune and Sun opposite Neptune on 4th and 10th September asks for some discrimination and caution for some, you could be confused, tired and be under the weather during these days. However, you could have great compassion or great love pop up too. The Full Moon in Pisces on 13th September PDT has the Moon conjunct Neptune opposite the Sun and the Moon opposite Mars. Jupiter square Neptune too. This could mark the end of an illusion or delusion we could doubt our dream. What is real, what is not?  The key is to listen to our intuition and have faith and keep moving forward step by step. Take that dream down into something concrete; a piece of art, sculpture, music. With a trine of Mercury and Venus at the 29th degree of Virgo a deal could be sealed, a project come to an end, dollars come in at last. Or we have a practical, useful conversation with the object of our affections.

The month has the first half of August filled with having fun, being creative and budding romances! The 2nd half of the month focuses on the details and discrimination but smoldering emotions and practical romance or friendships!

The New Moon in Leo at the end of July still exerts its wonderful, joyful, happy, playful energy and promotes a highly creative time with romance popping up everywhere.  Mercury at 23 degrees 59’ Cancer now stations direct on 2nd of August- Let’s have a party! Uranus goes retrograde on 11th of August till 11th of January 2020 when the big Saturn Pluto (and Mercury) have a meet up. We’ll be internalizing that change up energy to release it later in January 2020. Jupiter goes direct on this day improving stuck situations, now they flow more freely and lucky chances abound, especially for Sagittarius as Jupiter rules your sign. We have our Full Moon at 22 degrees 4 minutes of Aquarius. Venus in Leo opposes the Moon but conjuncts the Sun; whew! I call this: Lion Tamer!!! Take care with being preoccupied with the ‘packaging’ your love interest has…don’t forget it’s important to look inside too. Mars in Leo confers great courage, or you could be too hot to handle- watch out for lots of posturing in the collective! A beautiful New Moon in Virgo 6 degrees 47 minutes trines Uranus retrograde- emotional surprises or events that may easily release you from habits or situations you were stuck in. Venus conjunct Mars in Virgo promotes discrimination in love and practical romance. Creating things like beautiful sculptures is a great activity at this New Moon in Virgo. In the night sky on 9th of August in SE sky Jupiter will be close to the moon after sunset. On 22nd of August in West sky after sunset Jupiter will be shining brightly with Saturn just below it- conjuncting Saturn will be Pluto (you may need binoculars). 13th of August peak of Perseid Showers in NE sky. 15th of August just after sunset in West sky Venus is at her brightest, Mars is just right above the horizon too.

There are two important powerful eclipses in July. One, a total eclipse in Cancer, a New Moon on 2nd of July 2019. Venus goes over this eclipse point 12.13.14 of July- when I think things will happen. I really look to the two luminaries; the Sun and the Moon in individual charts as it relates to any eclipse. Secondly, the Ascendant/Descendant axis and stelliums all around the same degree points- 10/11 degrees of Cancer or opposition, Capricorn for the first eclipse. Powerful new beginnings!

Mercury retrograde starts in Leo on 7th of July and ends in Cancer on 2nd of August at 23 degrees Cancer. We will review where we best feel at home being our authentic self and decide having fun is important!

The Partial eclipse at 4 degrees of Capricorn is on 16th of July illuminating endings. Venus is very active at this eclipse and so values, love, relationships and money could reach some culmination for some. At the end of the month Sun square Uranus and Mercury retrograde opposition Pluto suggests strong, powerful words from powerful people (perhaps those in power). Also, the people (the Moon) revolt.

Fixed star Sirius rising and setting with the Sun, hovers around both these eclipses exerting powerful effects for those doing great deeds, a sacred time. Our Summer triangle of stars greets us in the East before sunrise Vega, Altair and Deneb.

June 2019 Astrology

New Moon in Gemini 3rd June 2019 @ 3:02am PDT, 12 Gemini 33. Gemini likes to chat, flirt, flit around the party and generally exchange ideas! Mercury, the ruler of this New Moon in Gemini is also in Gemini emphasizing these Gemini qualities. Venus trine Pluto retrograde exactly– transformation of our values – of ourselves, of others and what you value is all changing. Right now, this is a reflecting, internal dialogue but a very powerful time. This is a time to ponder and let things bubble up through your psyche – weighing things, people and places – back and forth. Saturn sextile Neptune, conjunct the South Node of the Moon and opposite the North Node of the Moon. That continuing process of letting the waters of life flow over and wash away the stuff that shouldn’t be there. Try not to get too attached to things that are ‘leaving’. Try instead to be objective with your-self and ‘watch’ be the observer. Always be mindful of doing what is right for you – always having the respect of others. Remember: you have one life at a time. On 12th June Mars in Cancer conjuncts the North Node of the Moon also in Cancer exactly! Talk about activating your destiny path. This is high energy lighting a fire under you to push you forward. No backward motion here- march, run forward! The next day, Mars trines Neptune in Pisces- can you see the dream in front of you now? Full Moon in Sagittarius 17th June 2019 @ 1:31 am PDT, 25 Sagittarius 53. Jupiter is the ruler of this Full Moon in Sagittarius, going retrograde. Jupiter exactly squares Neptune in Pisces and quincunx the North Node of the Moon. Saturn retrograde sextile Neptune, conjunct the South Node of the Moon and opposite the North Node of the Moon.  The Moon continues to go over South Node of the Moon, Saturn then Pluto – setting off truth bombs as it does. 27th June Mercury enters Leo – a flamboyant aspect. All the world’s a stage – right?  29th June Saturn conjunct the South Node of the Moon opposite the North Node of the Moon – the process of curating our life continues.

Neptune in Pisces Trine North Nodes of the Moon in Cancer @ 18 degrees

For the New Moon in Taurus Full Moon in Scorpio May 2019 video

The Neptune trine North Nodes of the Moon transit has a direct effect on the upcoming first eclipse in Cancer, Total Eclipse, New Moon @ 10 degrees Cancer because Neptune continues its Retrograde on 2nd July 2019 at 18 degrees Pisces (the actual retrograde starts 21 June 2019). The 2nd half of May marks a time where Neptune trines North Nodes of the Moon exactly. It is when we can start preparing by spiritualizing and letting go of ego in the specific house Neptune is residing right now…it will lead us to our path of destiny as it relates to our: home, our tribe, where you ‘feel’ at home, where you feel yourself and where you feel safe and secure. I go into each of the Astrological signs (please use your Ascendant sign). Start this activity now and you will be set up when the training wheels of Neptune are released @ the Cancer Total Solar Eclipse on 2nd July 2019. I wish you only the best.
