Healing The Heart: Venus Retrograde (Jul 26 - Sep 6)

In 8 days, Venus will turn retrograde (Jul 26 - Sep 6), coinciding with a major influx of Relationship Ripples - from old haunts, to current ghouls, the ones that got away to the ones you ran away from. Love (Venus) must now confront her own shadow-self  - narcissism, manipulation, selfishness and criticism /the need for Perfection - since she begins her retro in detail-driven-Virgo.

Look up and you've no doubt seen her shining BRIGHTLY above us, as she paired with Jupiter. Financial matters (also Venus) are re-examined - from spending habits, to credit cards, bank accounts and the possible pursuit of luxury and 'things' to fill a void in our sense of self-worth (another Venus attribute). Are we living beyond our means Or way under our full potential?

Venus is currently at the final degree of Leo - the pursuit of personal pleasure is necessary. So does creativity in all it's forms: music, art, theatre, dance, childhood freedom. Find a way to express what is in your Heart now, while you still can.

For without the strong self-pride we learn while Venus passes through Leo, we pass insecurely and uncertainly under Venus' Virgo critical eye.

 Enjoy yourself right now.That in itself is an Act of Love. And then prepare to Work on Yourself as Love moves us from high drama to a low, calmer tide of self-examination and the exploration of what is not working as it could or should in our pockets and in our hearts...

Did you know you can compare your Chart with someone else's and also create a third chart - the Chart of the Relationship Itself? Very revealing and highly recommended.

They're the most ordered Reports at the site, for very good reason. Check out the RELATIONSHIP Reports if you're in the throes of partnership changes...

Love Thyself!

Cancer New Moon: Bonds, Belonging and Busting Beyond the Discomfort Zone

Cancer New Moon tonight. Lots of watery energy about as you've read in the Weekly Scopes (scroll down my page to see them). The New Moon falls at:

6.24pm LA
9.24pm NY
2.24am Thursday UK,
5.24am Thursday Dubai,
9.24am Thursday Hong Kong,
11.24am Thursday Sydney

This one is all about the PAST, our FEELINGS, our NEEDS, our EATING HABITS, our LIVING SITUATION, our FAMILY, our sense of BELONGING.

A square from Uranus in Aries adds a sudden urge for freedom from past restrictions, past feelings/triggers/reactions - in short, old worn-out emotional material. There's an urge at times to throw everything out from our past, but the square shows it's really an internal friction playing out externally between the habits that have become comfortable even in their discomfort, and the striving Valiantly, Nobly and Bravely and Suddenly (Uranus/Aries) towards something fresh and new.

We have no choice but to Update Our Lives now. Helpful Trines from Chiron (healing) and Saturn (structuring) are welcome signposts that beyond the yearning, burning, churning feelings in the pit of our stomachs, lies is a New Comfort Zone waiting to be tried out. All it takes is listening to that still voice within and taking one foot forward...
Send some good vibes my way, will you? Still trying to secure a new home and it's been one challenge after another. Saturn back in Scorpio is a real Test. Don't give up.

The Synchronicities of Pisces/Neptune/Cycle 12

If you're also with me on Facebook ( direct link: ), you may remember my supermarket story from the other day? I rarely write down or track my synchronistic moments. Maybe I'll start!

Born with a highly charged Neptune (and transiting Neptune on my IC (Cycle 4 cusp), I've come to find it commonplace but something I joke about a lot - how everyone who ever spends enough time with me inevitably gets to bear witness to some strange, surreal, magical and perhaps mystical moments and "line-ups". It happens a lot with the Fish, or to those who know them well.

Like the many times I'll suddenly say the exact same thing as the person on TV, read friend's and strangers minds without trying, or the only woman in the giant library a couple weeks back, who passed me near the Travel section with her friend discussing... zodiac signs, of course.

There have definitely been enough "raised eyebrows' when "chance" goes through the window. It's fun when you have a witness!

I caught Family Guy, first time in a long time late the other night. And a character said "between garbage and good, there's Chipotle!" If you've been reading my posts - maybe you'll also find that synchronistically-amusing.

Oh and the randomly-assigned hotel room number I was given last night? "222"...

Any of YOU seeing more line-ups of late?

Sagittarius Full Moon Scopes (May 2)

Archery (sign of Sag, the Centaur/Archer) is tricky. I found I was good at darts when I was younger and I was too shy to chat to people at the local bar. My Moon is in Sag, so perhaps that's why? Naturally good aim.

That's key now: WHERE ARE YOU AIMING?  What are you aiming AT? What is your goal?
Without an answer, you're shooting from the hip (the part of the body also ruled by Sag).

HONESTY is key. Without it, you're screwed. Square Neptune, this Full Moon has its fair share of tall tales, courtesy in part by a nice easy aspect from Jupiter,

Remember this!

Since I missed the Weekly Scopes here is a (very brief) run down on the theme for the next two weeks for each sign:

ARIES: Beat the Truth drum but be careful of the germs of doubt or depression that dampen your light.

TAURUS: Admit your sexual needs. Be above board in all $ transactions but be careful of "friends" who threaten to drag you to their level.

GEMINI: Truly HEAR what others are saying about or to you. Avoid glossing over harsh truths and be wary of office politics and shady fiascoes.

CANCER: You now know what works and what doesn't. Simple. Not letting dark fantasies cloud your vision. Tricky.

LEO: Your happiness is in YOUR hands. But be wary of hormones that build everything up to come crashing down just for the sake of the High Drama you thrive on.

VIRGO: Build on truth, pull the rug out from lies. Be wary of victims trying to lure you in to pity parties to drain your precious reserves.

Say it like you mean it! Just be careful your health isn't affected when you feel guilt creeping in for your abrupt tone.

SCORPIO: Think positively about the whole money thing or you'll deplete your own good fortune. Watch out for any residue  victim-vibes secretly yanking the strings within your heart.

SAGITTARIUS: LIVE your truth, quietly, loudly. Be Yourself. Just offload that mouth of yours, preferably on paper? Be careful, old emotional material (and family/home patterns) could pull you under again.

CAPRICORN: As long as YOU live with virtue and honesty, to heck with everyone else. Be wary of thoughts that leads you down the dark labyrinth you've traversed many times before.

AQUARIUS: Celebrate the allies who cheer you on. Mutual Support systems in place! Careful, money management is shaky.

PISCES: You stand for Integrity and Principle. Just don't allow your weak moments to topple you.

Gospel Singing in the Rain (Sagittarius Full Moon with Jupiter and Neptune)

June 2 2015
trine Jupiter square Neptune 
(9.15.58 am LA, 00:15:58 NY, 18.15.58 UK)

The BS factor increases with help from Inflation-Jupiter to his own ruled (and now exaggeration-and accident-prone) Sagittarius Moon, while Neptune breaks the emotional dams built between us.

Some big stories with epic moments, 
rainbows found in the stormiest times,
 huge rescues, 
lost cash, 
big gamblers and spenders!
huge emotional blow ups and messes, 
major sinkings (or sinking feelings) 
miracles aplenty, to save the day!

Picture a choir of gospel singers singing their heart out in the rain, perhaps on the Titanic, perhaps by the scene of a fallen hero. The image is one of joyous beauty and sadness.

Now watch the song from Cirque de Soleil Allegria with subtitles ("the beautiful roaring scream of joy and sorrow, so extreme"). This is the astrological essence of the Now: the exquisite dance of Joy and Sorrow. It's only "negative" when you cannot accept the truth (Jupiter) of true (Sag) surrender Neptune): to the music, to the change, to the unknown, to your life...

Sagittarius is the Bright Light at the End of the Tunnel and Pisces is empathic experience and thus understanding of suffering and sadness found and felt along the way.

Together, we let the tears of Today 
float us to a brighter Tomorrow.

 I should know, my Pisces Sun/Mercury (4th) are eternally square my Sagittarius Moon (2nd). 

You have to adapt now.

 If you need help, I'm your guy.

Mercury Retrograde and the Mental Monkey Maze

What are you thinking about right now? 
What pictures were you holding in your head earlier, on the 

Watch your Thinking! 

Observe your daily ramblings and ruminations this next three weeks. 
Mercury will retro soon 
(6.49pm LA, 9.49pm NY, 5.49am Tue UK). 

In Gemini, this becomes THE chance to re-train your brain, 
teasing it thought by thought towards that which delights you, 
fills you with energy....
and to slowly...
un-stick our cerebral centres from thoughts that only lead us into the
 endless Mental Monkey Maze.... 

Time, perhaps, to tell yourself a New Story, 
one that leans into the Universal Mind where All is Well...

Weekly Scopes - Taurus New Moon with ASTRAEA

Weekly Scopes up early, in time for the Taurus New Moon tonight! 
This one is a degree from Astraea. 
According to legend, "Astraea will one day come back to Earth, 
bringing with her the return of the utopian Golden Ager". 

Could this New Moon herald her Return? 

As the last Goddess to leave the Earth she is, however, associated with "unresolved issues" "believing it ain't over until it's over - even though it already is" "not letting go soon enough" and thus "loose ends"

Then... Mercury turns Retro the day after! 

What could it all mean? 

Some possibilities laid out for you in the Weekly Scopes...
