Soul Reflection ~ Pluto & Saturn Shift Retrograde in Capricorn!

Pluto, the planet of the Soul, shifts retrograde in Capricorn on Wednesday, April 24, for the next several months. Any old models and dynamics that have become outworn and crystallized will be renovated to support your evolution moving forward. Everything has a limit and you will be shown within your journey where you have reached the roof of an ongoing reality.

This retrograde will have a way of taking some of the pressure off however, as you reflect upon the most productive way to invest your energy and time. It will pull you into greater depths of your being and serve to help you re-construct a Soul plan from there.

Saturn, the planet of commitment, is also transiting through its own sign of Capricorn, and will be shifting retrograde as well on Sunday, April 28, to have you double down on your Soul’s focus and intentions for how best to dedicate your energy and time.

Pluto Retrograde: Wed. April 24 ~ Oct. 3, 2019
Saturn Retrograde: Sun. April 28 ~ Sept. 17, 2019

Pluto and Saturn will be traveling closely for the remainder of the year and for most of 2020, which is a good thing, for Pluto will not allow you to hold onto anything that is going to weigh you down or hold you back. This will lead you into a deep and necessary de-conditioning process where you will be progressively slipping out of old clothing and stepping out of shoes that never quite fit.

Make the most of your time, in heart, body and & Soul, so it will work better for you in the long run.

Know Where You Stand ~ Full Moon in Libra!

There are some significant energy shifts in the last two weeks of April, starting with Mercury finally free from his shadow and entering Aries today, Tuesday, April 16, energizing a spirit of initiation and a desire to express what you want with more flair and fire. Action Mars is in the sign of Gemini, which Mercury rules, adding a bit more heat to your communications so be mindful of how your words will be received. Fortunately, these planets are in mutual reception.

A mutual reception is when two planets are in each other’s signs of rulership. Whenever planets are in mutual reception, they provide the native with additional forces to overcome difficulties that present themselves during transits affecting their signs and houses.

A Full Moon follows at the very last degree of Libra on Friday, April 19, at 4:12 am pacific, bringing dynamics in key relationships to a head. Emotions will be running wild between now and then, especially if you are not quite sure how someone is feeling or whose side they are on. It will be essential to stay as balanced and responsive as you can, as opposed to reactive and unruly, if you want things to turn our favorably.

Venus, the ruler for Libra, finishes her tour in idealistic Pisces and enters action-driven Aries the following day, Saturday, April 20, putting that dream into action. Speak up and take bold steps, so you (as well as they), know where you stand!

To Be or Not to Be ~ Jupiter Stations Retrograde in Sagittarius!

How do you really know when something is true? When you know it, you feel it in your bones. It’s that feeling deep within the Soul that says ‘yes’ before the mind has a chance to interfere. The body does not lie, and it will tell you the truth every time.

The real challenge comes when the Soul comes to believe something that isn’t true. Truth out talkin’ Jupiter is stationing retrograde in Sagittarius, tomorrow, April 10, for the next four months, giving you a stronger intuitive hit to cling to.

For months, you have been experiencing an ongoing expansion in a key area of your life, and with this retrograde in place, it will be time to deeply integrate and facilitate the growth that has been occurring. The progress you will be experiencing now will be within, which ultimately will be the most powerful way to manifest change in the outside world.

Much of your inner journeying will be linked with the discovery of your nature and your own personal truth. This trend will allow you to find and follow the groove rooted in your natural design, so you can honor it and surrender to the flow of where it wants to go.

Access the courage to feel the truth and find it for yourself, and trust yourself to know it when it arrives. This is your chance to BE all that you were born to BE!

Mercury Stations Direct in Pisces ~ Steps Toward Clarity and Clear Action!

Finally, Mercury stations direct in Pisces on Thursday, March 28, in Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac. Mercury traveled all the way to the final degree of Pisces, within minutes of entering Aries, the sign of new beginnings, before stopping and reversing directions.

This is HIGHLY significant.

There were experiences you needed to have, information you needed to gain, and clarity that had to be found.

Mercury. the planet of communication, retrograded back over Neptune, the planet that rules Pisces. and is forming what is referred to as a balsalmic conjunction. Mercury may station direct in a few days, but it will take nearly three weeks before Mercury is free of its shadow from the retrograde.

Mercury finally enters Aries on April 17, and will clear up by the day, but things may still feel foggy and potentially slippery and sluggish at times. While you may be moving through a gray zone, and waiting for something to feel more solid and clear, there is a favorable energetic combination early on that will create an electric charge for something or someone.

Loving Venus, the planet of what holds value and meaning, shifts into Pisces today and forms a favorable sextile to Uranus and Taurus as we approach the weekend, energizing an ideal breakthrough that has the effect of raising your vibration. Once your energy is heightened, you will naturally attract more of what you want and need!

Life’s Tuning Fork ~ Super Full Moon in Libra!

The Moon is growing Full and you are feeling it. As we travel though the tail end of Pisces, you are working to close a cosmic cycle, but steps for closure must occur before you can fully initiate the new.

As soon as the Sun steps into Aries, the Moon becomes full in its opposite sign of Libra.

Wednesday, March 20 at 2:49pm pacific ~ Equinox/ Sun enters Aries
Wednesday, March 20 at 6:43pm pacific ~ Super Full Moon in Libra

This can lead to an energy of extremes, where relationships show their true colors or your own vulnerabilities surface in varying degrees. It can take an extreme to counteract an extreme so wild emotions may erupt in order to bring things back into balance again.

Hot-headed Mars, the ruler for Aries, is squaring Venus, the ruler for Libra, adding a bit more spice to the mix, so prepare for the potential for tempers to flair or for anger to push through in places. At the very least, consider this to be your cosmic tuning fork so your new beginning can properly begin.

Mars is also forming a strong trine to Pluto, the planet of empowerment, as well as a supportive sextile to the North Node in Cancer, the symbol for your destiny, so know with a little patience, peace, and determination, a strong pathway of promise will be revealed!

Total Supermoon Eclipse in Leo ~ The Unrelenting Pull of Passion!

The energy is penetratingly palpable these days. Not only is action Mars in fiery Aries, we are in between eclipses and are approaching a Total Supermoon Eclipse in Leo that occurs late in the West on Sunday, Jan. 20.

While this lunar burst is loaded with an unpredictable flair, it is also laced with grace as Mars in Aries aligns beautifully with our two most benevolent planets, loving Venus and generous Jupiter, in the sign of Sagittarius.

Mars is squaring Saturn, which will be giving you a hard push to take responsibility for the life you created and to face your fears. The past may be bogarting your every thought and every move so do what you can to keep it in the rear view mirror so it doesn’t negatively influence the future

Saturn in Capricorn also has a way of grounding you in the changes you are experiencing as he forms a supportive sextile to heavenly Neptune, to create a feeling of divine protection as you take courageous steps on your Soul journey.

The heart is in charge and is telling you what is of utmost priority now. Feel it and follow the undeniable pull. There will be no more delay or denying what needs to be dealt with, honored and owned.

In Between Eclipses ~ Thinning of the Veil!

This is it! This is your energetic pocket for springboard change. We are in between a two week eclipse window where you are more sensitive to energy and capable of experiencing greater influences that could suddenly alter the trajectory of your life.

The two eclipse points, Saturday, Jan. 5, and Sunday, Jan. 20, can be understood as bookends of energy where this period of time in between represents a highly malleable energetic window. The thinning of the veil reflects your ability to see or feel through and into the ‘other side’ or to experience a more palpable feeling of connection with the vast unknown during this time frame.

The intensity of life can increase and fated events are quite common. You may be feeling vulnerable and defenseless, but it takes those walls coming down so desirable evolution can occur. Do take note of the themes surrounding your days as this will be a focus for the next six months.

This is a powerful passage point. Reach in and through!

New Year’s Charge ~ Mars Enters Aries!

How energetically fitting. Mars, the planet of action and fresh starts and the planet that leads you into your future, entered his home sign of Aries last night in the west, initiating a brand new start in your life. I truly cannot ever remember a time when Mars was in Aries at 0 degrees on New Year’s Day.

This is your fresh start, your zero degree mark to bring your all to something new. It is granting you with the fuel that you need to hit the ground running in the New Year.

If that wasn’t enough, we have a New Moon Eclipse in Capricorn on Saturday, Jan.5, to blow away any old models and structures that no longer support your road ahead. The New Moon is all about a brand new way forward and the eclipse can energize a surprise in your trajectory.

Some relief comes when loving Venus enters fire sign Sagittarius on Monday, Jan 7, tempering some of the heat of Mars while also allowing you to harmonize more in some key relationships.

It is a loaded first week of the New Year, so prepare yourself for the speed at which life is about to take off. Stay in your center and get ready to go and grow!

Miracles Can Happen ~ Mars in Pisces Trines the North Node in Cancer!

Miracles large and small are more than possible this holiday season as action Mars is in magical Pisces and forming an angle that carries an energy of deliberate intent to the North Node in Cancer, the symbol for your destiny. If your intentions are pure and you have shown true commitment toward something, there is a reward coming.

Pisces can also create a feeling of invisibility at times, or feeling overlooked, but with Mars now in this position to the Nodes, those symbols that connect to your past and your future, it can burn right through that fog layer and swing open a door.

Perhaps the miracle you need this season is for the ice to melt in a frozen family dynamic. Progress is possible and the healing follows. The energies suggest you can make considerable headway with someone in the coming days when an effort of initiation is taken.

With Jupiter and Mercury traveling together in truth-out Sagittarius, expressing yourself honestly and openly will gift you the greatest loving return, so speak up when your intuition tells you it’s time. This Sagittarian/Pisces combo flair can generate either a serendipitous meeting or a Come to Jesus moment where the light bulb of awareness turns on for them or for you, and the tides change in your favor. Anything is possible.

Wherever you are around the globe this holiday season, May you find peace and a feeling of promise for the New Year!

Merry Christmas One and ALL!

Speak and Leap ~ Mercury Re-enters Sagittarius!

Much will be coming together this week as some key planetary pairs work in partnerships to help secure some steps forward. For starters, Mercury is now direct and re-entering Sagittarius late Wednesday, Dec.12. Left brain Mercury picks up speed again and will energize intuitive right brain Jupiter on Solstice, Friday, Dec. 21. Energize what you envision and the pure power of your thoughts may magnetize more of what you seek. Some timely good news surrounds this season.

Your intuition will shine a light of truth on your path forward and if your thinking mind can follow through on what your sixth sense is saying, your communications will prove to become fortunate. Saying just the right thing at just the right time may very well open an ideal door.

Loving Venus in Scorpio aligns in stable ways to Saturn in Capricorn on Sunday, Dec.16 and action Mars in Pisces syncs up seamlessly to Pluto, the planet of the Soul, the following day.

The planets are all teaming up on your behalf to help facilitate breakthroughs in your life with Uranus retrograde in Aries still squaring the Nodes, the symbols that connect to your past and your future. This week you will feel a supportive push to finally make it through a Soul chute.

Wanting something is not enough. Take a chance when the time is right.

Trust me, you will know!
