Jupiter Takes a Turn in Retrograde

Since November of 2018, our solar system's largest planet has been comfortably orbiting within its native constellation of Sagittarius. Jupiter is connected to the sign of Sagittarius, as it is the sign of idealism, keen perception, as well as philosophy and wisdom. Sagittarius is a fire sign symbolized by the archer, or centaur, shooting his arrow towards a bright and optimistic future. This has enabled the planet of fortune and expansion to shine a special light into our lives one way or another. Even though the first three months 2019 had brought its own set of challenges for many people, based on a variety of planetary transits, it hasn't all been bad. Jupiter calls to us to look on the...

Chiron, Sun, and New Moon in Aries, oh my.

Let's welcome a new cycle of change, because now is the time to take action! There is a lot to examine here, all about the self. Firstly, Chiron (The Wounded Healer) in Aries is providing an opportunity to reveal the hidden truths that are rising to the surface.

We avoid the green vegetables, books and the discipline of the learning environment. While the lighter things in life are certainly blessings, it is our darkness that enables us to grow. The test that we breezed through may quickly fade in our...

Super Moon and Vernal Equinox Support Balance and Change

On March 20th we will encounter the third and final Super Moon of 2019, as well as marking the vernal equinox, as the sun enters Aries the following day. Wow, what a mouthful! Each year we celebrate the equinox twice. We celebrate on September 22 the final balance of the light and darkness (12 hours of each), signifying the growing darkness in the months to come; the harvest. The beginning of Libra starts the following day. Now we mark the first equinox of the year, the balance of light and darkness, signifying the coming of light and new life, with the initiation of a new zodiac year, beginning in Aries. Not only is this a powerful time of the seasons,...

Were You Born During Mercury Retrograde?

Well, it looks like we've all made it through the first week of Mercury retrograde! Even though this can be a difficult time for several of us, with lapses in communication, disruption of thought, and even technological difficulties, it is also a great time for self-reflection and planning for the time ahead. This Mercury retrograde is the first of three for 2019, and the current reversal our smallest planet will continue until March 28, before returning to its direct motion. Most of us are pretty familiar with how Mercury retrograde (Rx) can affect our everyday life and the best course of action to take, or not to take, during these few weeks. These can include avoiding any new commitments, refraining...
