Brave Heart

27 degrees Leo / Aquarius

Today's Leo Full Moon is a time to unleash our boldness and invoke a Brave Heart. Leo's symbol is the Lion - the king of the jungle, whose power and authority is unquestioned. Ruled by the Sun, Leo brings radiance, warmth and creative fire into the world.

The Full Moon sets off a dramatic Grand Fixed Cross with the Lunar Nodes in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius in which transformation and creation is urgently needed to move forward. It's a time to gather our courage and express what's in our hearts. As we're at the mid-point between eclipses, events can have a profound impact on our destiny storylines.

In these Aquarian times
, we're learning about the power of community and collective healing. Throughout most of 2022, there are no transits in Leo (until briefly from late July to early September when the...

Aquarius New Moon | Commitment to Reform

Uncategorized Feb 01, 2022

"All you need to know is that the future is wide open
and you are about to create it by what you do."

- Pema Chodron

Today's Aquarius New Moon falls on the Chinese Lunar New Year - Year of the Water Tiger - which heralds a fresh start to a year of following your intuition with courage and passion.

January may have felt like the practice run to the start of 2022, as both Venus and Mercury were retrograde, drawing our attention to past issues that called for reflection and resolution. Now, as Venus has recently gone direct and Mercury prepares to follow suit, eyes and hearts are coming into focus and peering toward the future.

This New Moon is an opportunity for a new beginning - one that calls for a commitment to innovation, reform and sustainability as it joins responsible Saturn in inventive Aquarius.

The Sun is separating from a square to disruptive Uranus and is heading toward a conjunction with disciplinarian Saturn. The Saturn-Uranus square that featured for...

Transformative Potency

Cancer Full Moon Themes
Emotional security needs, desiring comfort/familiarity,
Empowered ego drives, cathartic expression, urges for freedom


"Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.

Monday's Cancer Full Moon is a climax of powerful transformative forces
. The Moon is in its sign of rulership in Cancer, it will likely bring forth emotional neediness. Cancer craves comfort and the security which comes from the familiar. I write this from my cozy home office as a snowstorm intensifies outside my window and I sense the craving for security while the powerful forces of nature are gathering.

The Sun's polarity in Capricorn suggests a...

Mercury Rx in Aquarius - Capricorn

Uncategorized Jan 13, 2022

It's tricky when there's a Mercury retrograde just after the New Year. Just as we're embarking on a new chapter, we find that our attention turns inward and backward. Perhaps we run into glitches that require we re-think our plan, or revise our strategy.

Mercury - the planet of communication - stations retrograde in Aquarius for it's 3-week 'backward' transit, January 14 - February 3. Yes, you can expect glitchy Zoom meetings, webinar snafus, and plenty of trickster antics that can make our more tech-dependent lives exasperating.

Keeping calm, collected and focused can be a challenge when our nervous systems also feel zapped by the trickster god. But it also presents us with certain gifts as well.

Mercury retreats just before it reaches disciplinarian Saturn, so before we commit, we need to rethink Aquarian concepts and ideas. Aquarius often signifies groups, networks, technical innovations and social causes - these areas may especially need revising. Mercury rx can open the...

Gemini Full Moon Themes
abundant information, anxieties, over-the-top charm, duplicity, distraction, discerning data, gossip, curiosity, multi-tasking, inspiring insight.

"As an abundance of information flows, I discern and align with those ideas which are an investment in a new horizon of my destiny."

Today's Gemini Full Moon is a ripening of ideas and an abundant flow of information - thanks in part to the trine to Jupiter in Aquarius. Gemini is the sign of the Twins and correlates to our siblings
, close friends, and communities who seem to be an extension of ourselvesThe flow of chatter, news and holiday cheer mixes and mingles with the collective anxiety of unseen forces at play.

Collectively, we may see responses to the pandemic referred to as "an abundance of caution" (collective restriction = Saturn in Aquarius). However, the glimmer of hope is that Jupiter will be moving into Pisces once more on December 28 (my birthday!)...

Taurus Lunar Eclipse | Craving Security

Uncategorized Nov 18, 2021

Craving Security

Friday, November 19
12:57 AM PST / 3:57 AM EST
27 degrees Taurus / Scorpio

Taurus Lunar Eclipse Themes:
extravagances or anxieties around money and security,
craving stability, sudden rebelliousness, striving for dominance,
passionate emotional expression, releasing stuck patterns.

"My cravings for security can be found in my Soul's desires for oneness.
Whatever I give with generosity, I receive with gratitude."

Friday's early morning Full Moon is a Lunar Eclipse in Taurus, the sign most associated with the desire for stability, survival, self-sufficiency, and materialism. Lunar Eclipses are conjoined to the Lunar Nodes of Destiny, creating a cosmic re-alignment that can seem especially fated and impactful. 

Often, what is stuck can become dislodged in areas of the Moon, such as emotional attachments, home, family, women or what we've become dependent upon. Lunar Eclipses are often a time to evolve beyond...

Aries Full Moon + Eris | Courageous Ambition

Uncategorized Oct 19, 2021

Aries Full Moon
Wednesday, October 20
7:57 AM PDT / 10:57 AM EDT
27 degrees Aries

Full Moons illuminate polarities as the Sun (purpose) and Moon (emotional needs) face off in opposing signs. Wednesday's Aries Full Moon challenges the Libra Sun's focus on partnership and cooperation as the impatient Aries Moon needs to have her own way. 

Some may sense that they've over-compromised and need to re-assert their independence. Or - as is the case with Eris conjoined with the Full Moon - some may feel left out, scorned, disrespected or rejected. Eris is the goddess of strife, sister of warrior Mars. And as Mars is in the mix (conjoined to the Sun, opposing Eris, square Pluto and trine Jupiter) motivation to achieve one's passionate desires is heightened.

A T-square to transformative Pluto in authoritative Capricorn suggests a challenge to authority or metamorphosis in one's own personal power. We may feel a need to dig deep to...

Sacred Healing

Monday, September 20

28 degrees Pisces Moon / Virgo Sun

Pisces Full Moon Themes

compassion, confusion, distortions, dreams, enchantment, escapism, fantasy, gratitude, healing, illness, imagination, magic, mystical, overwhelm, purification, rest, retreat, sacredness, sacrifice, sorrow, yearning, unrequited/unconditional love

"I welcome the awareness that is ripening in my consciousness.
As I integrate sacredness into my daily life, I access grace.
Healing is a miracle of self-love."


Today's ultra-sensitive Pisces Full Moon coaxes forth the yearnings of the soul and illuminates the urgent need for healing. As the dutiful Virgo Sun is polarized by the sacrificial Pisces Moon, we may become conscious of that which is most sacred and precious that needs recognition. 

The Pisces-Virgo axis may bring forth issues relating...

Aquarius Full Moon
August 22, 2021
5:01 am PDT / 8:01 am EDT
29 Aquarius / Leo

Tomorrow's Aquarius Full Moon is at the final critical degree of the Aquarius-Leo axis. 29 degrees suggests an urgency, which may present an important decision, a last straw or a point of no return. 

The shattering of societal norms and structures of the Saturn-Uranus square is also ignited at this time, with Uranus recently stationing retrograde in Taurus. The pandemic has made us acutely aware of our survival needs but equally conscious of what it means to really live and the priorities we create our life and world around.

The previous Aquarius Full Moon on July 23 was at 1 degree of Aquarius and fell between Saturn and Pluto. This was also the area of the zodiac of the Saturn-Jupiter conjunction at the Winter Solstice, suggesting a sense of great potential, but one that requires an innovative vision and sustained effort.

At this Blue Moon, the...

Leo New Moon | Where You Shine

Uncategorized Aug 09, 2021

This Leo New Moon cycle is an opportunity to return to your center and shine your light of courage, creativity and purpose. The Sun is in its rulership in Leo and as the Moon aligns with the solar life force, the fire of creative, dramatic Leo is reignited. 

As I write this, the Moon is newly waxing and opposing abundant Jupiter rx in Aquarius. While Jupiter is somewhat restricted in the realm of Saturn and not entirely at ease while retrograde, we may still sense the hope and expansiveness that is uniquely Jupiterian. 

In two weeks' time, the second Aquarian Full Moon will conjoin Jupiter, and the flowering of our intentions will have a chance to bloom. I find the Leo/Aquarius axis to be a spectrum of how our specialness and creative gifts (Leo) can impact the collective consciousness (Aquarius). And how the impulse to put collective needs first (Aquarius) can fuel a sense of purpose (Leo).

The New Moon is separating from a square to Uranus, so there's an urge to...
