April Astrology Forecast

April is a busy month, so get ready folks, with Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto all going into Retrograde phases this month, it’s a time for reassessment around what you are doing in your life. And with four planets in magical Pisces, the focus is more on imagination and illumination than practical matters. This period is wonderful for creativity and spiritual exploration but it’s best to wait until at least April 5th before making decisions that require focus, or a the very least some careful thought and consideration.

Since our plans and projects will be under such an intense review throughout the month of April we must make sure an align our goals with our life’s purpose. It’s also a good time to stop any activities that just are simply holding you back, or aren’t serving you. Quit wasting valuable time and energy. If you take the time to review your goals and plans this month than you’ll probably see progress in the fall when things really take off again. But for now, you have some lessons to get through and hopefully learn from.


April 2nd – Creative Confusion 

Mercury just recently out of its Retrograde cycle (but still in the after Rx Shadow phase through the 16th) makes a powerful connection to Neptune the king of dreams and escape. Mercury rules our mind and how we think, communicate, and perceive information. Neptune rules over things like our imagination, spirituality, and deceptions. This influence can inspire you and others, so you may feel highly creative. This also can help you communicate your dreams to the person you adore. 

But it’s also causing confusion with mental Mercury just in the after-Shadow period of Retrograde, also in Pisces, as well as Neptune. All in all, this energy can make things unclear and foggy. If something sounds too good to be true it probably is. Don’t get ripped off or scammed, deception is in the air right now. Find ways to be inspired, get creative and this fog will finally be lifting for good in a few days.


April 4th – Power Moves 

Powerful Pluto makes an intense connection to the Lunar South Node point both in the sign of Capricorn. Some folks could try to make bold moves to gain power or control during this time. So there may be some pretty wild upheavals. There can be ego battles that can be destructive in one way or another. If you force issues on others without taking responsibility for your own actions it can backfire on you. This is not a good time to just go after things on a whim without seriously taking consideration your consequences. Take some time to evaluate your goals and make plans for your next move, so you can get what it is you really want, but just make sure to not bump heads along the way, or it will only cause you more problems. 


April 5th – New Moon in Aries – New Beginnings

There’s a New Moon in the sign of Aries occurring and whatever you’ve been planning or working on can finally start to get moving. This energy gives us a chance to breathe new life into already existing projects. This is all about “New Beginnings” in a big bold way! As the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries is all about courage, and it gives us a huge dose of higher confidence and energy to take on our tasks, projects, and goals and make things happen! The Pluto-South Node alignment is also occurring around the same time frame, so this can help us to be more practical, even if we are more daring with new and innovative ideas.  If you already know enough to make an informed decision, it’s important to not be indecisive. Try to be patient and look for more information around the next Full Moon on April 19 that will help you know what to do next. 


April 10 – A Reality Check 

The Sun is making a tense Square formation with taskmaster Saturn. It’s important to know what responsibilities you want to take on and what you don’t, it’s a good time for some assessment of your life. as you will be challenged to rid of the things that you are doing too much of or that might be taking up to much of your time and energy. It’s no longer “go big or go home,” instead your mantra for this time should be, “go small or give in! Create balance around what you want and that is for the greater good of everyone. 


April 10 – Take a Step Back 

Giant Jupiter is going to be making its yearly backward trip as it enters its Retrograde cycle for nearly four months.  Making progress will come to a halt as this cosmic turnaround tends to slow us down. This is a cycle of reflection into what gives your life deeper meaning, and what helps you feel more abundant. This isn’t typically a time of difficulty, but when Jupiter gets ready to turn Retrograde it can seriously slow us down as it’s an influence is more intense feeling. This actually can cause you to feel a sense of urgency and desire to find something more expansive in your life and to get rid of the things that are restricting you, holding you back, or that are keeping you from feeling happy or satisfied. 
Every now and then the Universe has a way of making us take a time out to review our lives, to make sure that our plans and projects are still what we want and need. Through August 11th is a time for cutbacks on the activities that don’t help you reach your goals, and to rid of any distractions that waste your time, energy, and money! Don’t worry about the projects that slowly go to the waste side, as they were a waste of your time anyway, During this cycle whatever plans don’t make the cut will turn out to probably be a blessing in disguise. Once Jupiter is direct, whatever plans or projects you have been working on will start to come together. You got a long time to sort it all out. If you happen to know your Astrology Birth Chart, you can look up just exactly what part of your chart this cycle is cruising through to get more information. 


April 13 – Power Moves 

The Sun is making a tense Square to potent Pluto! With the Sun’s transit through the sign of Aries, most of us are trying to initiate something, but we might have to deal with some powerful energies for a few days. Perhaps a person who has their own agenda or situation might ask you to change something up that throws your original plans out the window! It’s a time to be paying close attention and for being more mindful of other folks needs, besides your own. You can’t always take and take from others and expect something if you are not giving anything back in return. You can also be challenged in some way to make sure you are empowering yourself. Don’t be stubborn and don’t give everything away either. You will know when the time comes what you need to do if you pay attention to your signs and messages from the Universe during this powerful few days. 


April 17 – Quick Thinking 

The planet of communication Mercury will enter into bolder, enterprising Aries that brings amazing new insights and flashes of genius. This can help us take any plans or projects we might have new directions. Just make sure these directions are on a path towards your life’s purpose in some way and not a huge detour. Take this time to connect with other folks who help stimulate your thinking and who are encouraging, as this cycle can help you rid of old behaviors and habits for a better future. Also, keep in mind that Aries is known for being the God of War. It’s not a time to be debating or arguing or you can get caught up in all the negative drama and those great ideas won’t get moving forward. Instead, direct your energy towards achieving goals so you can take full advantage of this transits that will run through May 6th.


April 19 – Full Moon in Libra – Balancing the Chaos

When the Sun in Aries makes a tense but exciting connection to the Moon in Libra a Full Moon will occur. We are just coming out of the New Moon cycle at this point that started on April 5th. This Full Moon cycle is at what’s called the critical degree or anaretic degree, this means completion and marks the end of one cycle and the evolution into another. This Full Moon in Libra, the sign of balance and integration, encourages us to find ways to leave behind anything that is standing in our way of finding balance. Something might have to come to an end in order for us to find peace and harmony. This is also a time of culmination as you get a chance to take a step back and see if you are doing right by others and if you are paying attention to the folks in your life and their needs and desires. It’s all about being fair as our sense of justice is stronger than usual, put your focus on strengthening the bonds in your current relationships. Even though the Full Moon is always a time of endings, it is a time to work on releasing the energies that no longer are working for you. But this will be a social Full Moon time, so it’s a great energy to have a party under or to spend some time with a close BFF, and since Libra is about relationships maybe have a romantic dinner with the object of your affection.


April 20 – Sun enters Taurus

This Sun cycle is a time when we simply slow down, but we are also more determined, patient, and stubborn. The energy of the sign of Taurus is more practical, grounded, and stable. This is a great help with so many other cosmic connections during this time speeding things up, we can take a time out and look more closely at events unfolding around us or any complicated situations we are involved in with some common sense. This transit highlights things that are pleasing, beautiful, and attractive. This will be a month of relying on what’s always worked in the past but also moving forward with the times, it’s about integrating tradition with evolution in our lives. You will want to be more comfortable during this time as well, so set up camp for the next month to make sure you have a safe and cozy place to hang out while the Sun is in Taurus. Our senses are aroused and highly activated, so we enjoy more so, whatever pleases the senses, with things like food, music, entertainment, and sexual activities, (especially with Mars in the sign of Gemini as well, bow-chicka-bow-wow) we can have an incredibly sexy month. This cycle runs through May 21st.


April 20 – Blazing Love

The Goddess of love, Venus is moving into the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries, this brings fresh new energy into your love life and around your finances. This cycle brings love on rather quickly, relationships both new and old are more direct and spontaneous. Under this fiery influence, we tend to hunt each other down in matters of the heart, as we are more bold, courageous, aggressive, and impatient. Even though we can much more direct than usual with the folks we love and care for, some of you might be more reserved about your deeper emotions, and if you are feeling insecure you can get kind of aggressive or mean, especially if someone isn’t validating or expressing love back. This can cause some folks to be more sneaky and strategic when it comes to matters of the heart or anything involving money. Under the Venus in Aries influence we don’t look back to the past, it is a time to move forward. Each day is looked at as new and full of opportunities, so each moment matters more. We are not interested in anything mushy or things like apologies, we simply enjoy the chase and conquest. Relationships that are more long-term can use this fiery energy to reignite their passions, and if single love that is initiated now can sizzle out fast. Make sure and keep things moving forward if you want a new commitment around love or money, but also pay attention to what will happen in the long-term unless you are just looking for a hookup! This will run through May 15th. 


April 22 – Exciting Journeys 

A new exciting journey begins with the Sun making a connection called a “conjunction” to more unpredictable Uranus! This can be a liberating experience as we move forward from old habits and ways of thinking, especially about ourselves. Staying positive is key to being successful under this cycle, as it may not be as stable as some would like, but good things can happen. It’s a time to put your past behind you where it belongs, and keep an open mind about other people and embrace new thoughts and ideas. Most of all stay true to yourself and honor other people’s desire to express who they are and their own unique qualities. 


April 24 – Power Plays – Pluto Retrograde

Powerful Pluto challenges us on how we use and gain personal power, when Pluto goes backward or Retrograde. How do you deal with power and control? Some folks can’t simply get enough of power, and others are nervous when they have more, and then there are a few folks who refuse to take control of anything in their lives when they should. When Pluto goes Retrograde, it brings about power struggles around well, power, people rise and fall from power during this time, as there are lots of plays for power made. This is a good time to do some soul searching around your own personal relationship with power. What are your goals? What do you want to achieve in life? Do you feel like you have power over someone else and their life or is someone making the decisions for you? This can affect any part of our lives, but for the next several months we will be figuring out to how to move forward in ways that make us happy, just be careful about who’s toes you step on or how many folks you use your power over to get there! Remember Karmic balance always comes into play with these sort of things and if you abuse or just use folks to get what you want, it will eventually catch up with you in one way or another. Pluto will be in its Retrograde cycle until October 3rd.


Saturn Retrograde

April 29 – Saturn goes Retrograde – Taking Responsibility

Saturn the planet of rules and boundaries goes into its yearly Retrograde phase. This is a time when we must review our lives and make sure what we going after is exactly what we still want. This Retro period lasts through September 18th. During this Retro cycle, we are taken back over territory that we probably have already been through at one point. Saturn is about taking our responsibilities, rules, and boundaries more seriously. So there are going to be areas of your life that are important to go back over and review, to see what you can do to make these situations more secure. This can be a frustrating time, so we have to face possible limitations, barriers, or working on ending habits that aren’t so good for our future long-term success. 


April 30 – Saturn in Retrograde gets a boost!

To further enhance Saturn in Retrogrades energies, Saturn is in a conjunction with the Lunar South Node point. You may want to think about what you are being responsible for? Are you taking other folks burdens on or taking care of other people’s obligations? Do you think you should be the one in charge and are telling everyone else what you think they should be doing? Are you taking the steps to fix things when something comes up or are you enabling bad behavior? During this cycle, it’s time to go over your responsibilities and let go of old habits, old learned behaviors, and ways of thinking around who’s in charge and why!

Venus in Pisces

March 26, 2019 – April 20, 2019

For All Zodiac Signs

VENUS is the planet that rules over LOVE and often MONEY. The GOODESS Of LOVE moves into the sign of PISCES on March 26 through April 20th. PISCES energy can be more loving, tender, and compassionate, but often it becomes overzealous with partners and when in love. PISCES is often looked at as the Universal symbol for love in the ZODIAC, so it has its amazing points, as we can feel more free to love unconditionally and accept our lovers and partners, friends, family members, co-workers, and business partners for simply who they are. However, we may not know when to draw boundaries in love and with partners, or when spending money, so we need to be mindful.

While VENUS swims through the waters of PISCES, we tend to be more compassionate, but also are attracted to those folks who feel left out, overlooked, or even the ones who feel victimized. We tend to see people for who they are, without so much judgement or prejudice, but since it’s VENUS this applies more to those we love, and do business with.

Setting boundaries in our relationships and partnerships can be more difficult during this time, as we tend to give up what we need, to help other folks get what they want! As the walls dissolve between this physical world and other relams, we can have a hard time saying no, especially if our hearts are more open to the other person involved. But we can be champs at ignoring or avoiding people if need be, especially if we feel uncomfortable. And there can be more issues with Wishful Thinking, as we tend to believe what we want.

Love is not so easy to define under the sign of Pisces, so it can be more difficult to reach the object of our affection at times, both physically and emotionally. Love is not seen in black or white, but live, and in color and HD for that matter! It’s all or nothing under this influence.

While Venus is in Pisces we see love as all embracing everything and everyone, so we are better able to forgive and understand. Love is usually quite sexy under the sign of the fish, and we can be very seductive but also more easily seduced, or taken advantage of. We do tend to show more compassion to our partners now, as we seem to feel more tender and affectionate, but again at times we can still be hard to reach. But overall this can be a time for healing in love, however, there can be a longing for something that just can’t be defined, especially in our loving relationships, it’s more difficult to be or feel satisfied.

Borders, walls, and boundaries dissolve in our relationships and around our finances. As these lines blur the shadow side of this position becomes more evident. Some people can be more cunning, evasive, deceptive, and can easily victimize or delude you into believing something that’s absolutely not true.

Especially, if it’s about who they are, what they believe in or stand for, and what they want from you again in love or involving finances. Take heed, if someone tells you something that sounds to good to be true it probably is while Venus in the sign of Pisces. Don’t fall for lies and scams during this time.

March Full Moon Event!

March Full Moon

March 20th, 2019

For All Zodiac Signs

The March Full Moon in the sign of Libra is rather special from an Astrological standpoint, as it takes place on March 20th which is also the Spring Equinox, which in the Northern Hemisphere is the official start of Spring, and it’s also the same day the Sun shifts into the sign of Aries in 2019, and Aries Season begins.

This rare Spring Equinox Full “Super” Moon is when the Moon actually comes closer to the Earth. It takes an interesting combo of timing and location to attain Super Moon status, as they appear to be super-sized and much larger and brighter than a regular Full Moon. But this one is extremely special because it occurs during the Spring Equinox.

A few days before the Full Moon people tend to get weird and emotional, as the pressure builds up a few days prior to March 20th, this Super Moon’s energies will really pump things up. Some folks will feel more anxious, excitable, and can get highly irritated. But it also brings in incredible opportunities for love and money. So hopefully, being made aware helps you to be better prepared, so you can find your zen and stay grounded. Then this Full Moon’s super strong energy won’t cause you so many problems. Knowledge is power!

This Full Moon is in the sign of Libra, which is about partnerships and relationships, be it romantic or business, family or friend, something might be revealed, or become very important. Many of you will be making decisions about jobs, marriage, divorce, dating, letting go or allowing someone into your life under this Full Moon. Those folks who are already in a committed relationship may have some major turning point this week. Some of you might even meet up with a new or old lover, who you share a deep romantic bond with. However, we are still under Mercury’s cycle in Retrograde, so be careful. Just because someone we once loved shows back up in our lives doesn’t mean we are destined to be together. Take it very slow if you happen to meetup with a old lover or friend, it’s probably a lesson and not for the long run.

The Moon is in the 1st degree of Libra, which is the start of something or a new beginning. There can be epiphanies and Ah-Ha Psychic moments that have some special meaning, usually these are about starting something new and fresh. Something comes to full bloom, and this puts us on a new path. Oddly enough, the day after the Full Moon, Venus, Libra’s ruling planet is forming a tense Square to its Cosmic lover Mars, which is Aries ruling planet, and the Sun will be just shifting into Aries starting on the Full Moon point! This can bring up conflicts and tensions between our need for independence and togetherness. The end result of these conflicts can lead to new beginnings. Here’s an interesting note, this Full Moon occurs right at the beginning of the sign of Libra, and next month’s Full Moon will be near the end of the sign of Libra, so there is way more to this story then you probably realize at this time. Perhaps, an ending around whatever is brought out will be understood more during April 19th Full Moon.

“Feeling anxious and irritated during a Full Moon is actually a normal physical response to the Moon’s gravational pull on the planet. Just like the tides of the ocean rise during a Full Moon, so does the water within our own bodies, hence causing a physical and emotional response.”

This is also a great week for healing, and maybe gaining some sort of understanding of what you need to help heal yourself. The Sun in conjunct Chiron, the “wounded healer.” A emotional wound may come up to the surface to deal with, revealing that something needs you attention. If you make some time to learn how to nurture yourself, there can be some amazing healing work done.

As I mentioned March’s Full Moon is in the sign of Libra, and this definitely puts a spotlight on our relationships (of all kinds.) This gives us an opportunity to take a step back and observe ourselves, and notice if we are including the needs and desires of those around us, as we continue on our own journey. There’s a stronger pull to be fair and just, as our focus is more so on strengthening our relationship ties and bonds. This is a very social energy and a good time to have some sort of celebration, maybe you could throwing a party and celebrate the Full Moon-Spring Equinox! Take some time alone with your BFF while you’re at it, and don’t forget to schedule some sort of romantic adventure out with your lover!

The Moon just barely in the sign of Libra will go Full Wednesday evening, check your time zones! And it will stay Full through late Friday evening on the 22nd, so it will be strong for 2 and half days!

March 20th, Full Moon Occurrance Times

Eastern Time Zone 9:42 p.m.

Central Time Zone 8:42 p.m.

Pacific Time Zone 6:42 p.m.

Mountain Time Zone 7:42 p.m.

Setting Intentions with the Moon

If you are one who enjoys working with the Full Moon or Lunar energies every month than don’t miss this magical rare Super Full Moon event! There are portals opening with these energies since it’s also the Spring Equinox, and the start of the Astrological Calendar Year with the Sun shifting into Aries! So remember to Set Intentions to release something that might be holding you bsck from love, prosperity, luck, good health, etc.

Have a blessed Full Moon and a Magical Astrological New Year!

Spring Equinox/Aries Season

Sun in Aries/Spring Equinox
March 20, 2019

For All Zodiac Signs

The Sun shifts into the sign of Aries on March 20, 2019, and it’s the official first day of Spring as the “Spring Equinox” (Vernal Equinox) occurs, which is also the first day of the Astrological New Year!

Aries Season
The Sun will be in the sign of Aries from March 20, 2019 through April 19, 2019. And Aries Season begins! But did you know this affects each and every one of us, no matter your Sun Sign. With the Sun moving into this fiery but also empowering energy, we are awakened and there can be some great things are on the horizon. This is a time of new beginnings, as the light of the Sun slowly takes over the dark. We are more determined and motivated under the Sun in Aries cycle, but we should be careful about being impulsive and hasty. Our personal goals become very important, and there’s a strong urge to move forward and get things done under this new zodiac cycle. We are motivated to initiate something by taking the lead and making our own path. We notice our gut instincts more under this influence, so it’s good time to listen to them and pay attention! We are all going to be moving at a much faster pace now, and for some folks, this might be a lot faster than what they’re used to.

Spring Equinox
Spring is a season of growth and rejuvenation, and this Astrological New Year is urging you to explore new directions. During the Spring Equinox the energies can be extremely potent. This is the beginning of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and the energetic turning point from one season to the next. This is when the sunshine finally starts to grow through the Summer Solstice. We get to live more outwardly again, as we crawl back out to the land of the living, and get to spend more time outdoors once again and winter slowly fades away.

During this time of year many people around the world celebrate the Spring Equinox with all kinds of interesting old traditions and festivities to honor the Goddess of Renewal or Spring. Along with the Earth’s ability to regenerate itself once again, this season is obviously very important for many different reasons. It’s a time of awakenings, beginnings, and positive energy chasing the dark of night away.

Ask for Changes
As the seasons change, a gateway opens where we experience the light and dark. This makes for a great time to think about what energies you want to draw to you. It’s a time to think about what you want to manifest in your life next. Of course we all want to be healthy and have lots of money, but this is a time when we should get more detailed when making our “Intentions” List. So it’s a great time for setting powerful intentions or making out Wish Lists, and for doing energy work of any kind.

So get comfortable and take a breathe, and ask the Universe or whatever it is you believe in to bring in what you need and choose. And get a little detailed about it what you want to happen. Ask them to put you on the path towards what will make you happy! Think about what kind of things you want to happen next. What do you need to move forward and obtain your goals? Write it all down and make it perfectly clear to the Universe what it is your asking for.

Lots of people celebrate this season with religious or spiritual celebrations. But we must not forget the history, and that all of these festivities stem from the fact, that the Spring Equinox is first and foremost a major “Astrological Event.” This event is actually more about about the Sun’s light expanding, and it’s shift into the sign of Aries, the first Zodiac sign of the Astrological Calendar. This light represents the promise of a greater more warm life-changing energy coming into our lives.

And Easter is just one of those celebrations that actually began many Moon’s ago, as Eggs and Bunnies originally were symbols of fertility and sex, and represented new life beginning. Unfortunately, like most holidays it has been commercialized and even moved to a date on the calender that doesn’t match up with its origins and the Spring Equinox.

If you’ve been struggling through the Winter months, then consider this event to be just like a calendar New Year! In fact, it’s much stronger in energy because it is a Equinox. Be inspired that this is a new cycle and a renewed energy, and remember sometimes you have to believe that something can and will change.

May the Sun’s warmth and Spring’s Energy bring about new beginnings for you that lead to your deepest dreams and desires coming true.

Mercury in Retrograde – March 2019

Mercury in Retrograde starts today – March 2019

So how will it affect you? And how can you use this time to your advantage?


Mercury the planet of communication, perception, and travel goes into its first Retrograde of 2019, occurring in the sign of healing Pisces from March 5 – 28, and at 29 degrees, which is the anaretic degree or point of crisis (which tends to be harsher at this point.) This Mercury in Retrograde cycle seems to resurrect old situations or problems that we thought we were done and over with, only for us to have to deal with all over again. This is a time when we need a lot of rest, and to really focus on being kind to one another. Some folks might be quite mean or cruel, but don’t allow yourself to go there, instead focus on being kind and compassionate. This is a time to make sure and set some healthy boundaries, as we are more susceptible and vulnerable to manipulation and deception, especially during the last part of Mercury in Retrograde at the end of March when Mercury is conjunct Neptune, Pisces ruling planet. This can cause our thoughts to be foggy and can make things even more confusing, and it being Retrograde time it can even stronger than usual. 


It’s important to remember that just because Mercury is in Retrograde we shouldn’t stop our lives! This cycle gives us a chance to reflect on our past and search our own belief system in a more deep spiritual way. For this next three weeks there’s an opportunity to connect stronger to our own feelings and how we can meet our own personal needs. This process can be very internal as we should be doing things for ourselves, learning how to understand who we by being kind and compassionate. I invite you to talk to your version of divinity, the powers that be, the God of your understanding or knowiness. And ask what you can do for you, and how can you take better care of yourself?


Now that you have this info, the question is what can you do with it? Well here is some advice on how to survive a Mercury in Retrograde cycle.


First off always read over what you’re doing, and read it again and don’t sign any contracts unless it’s something you have to do, or make any new commitments again unless it’s something you have to do right away.


If you decide to do business during this cycle, make sure to ask for a second opinion, and be aware of the details for the next three to five weeks, because you should think about the more wonky time of Mercury’s Retrograde phase, which is the after Shadow time for 2 weeks after its Retrograde cycle, as things are slowly getting back to normal, it can be intense for some. Make sure to check in with your own intuition or higher-self, and stay open-minded as much as possible when making decisions. If you have any resources with someone else, like in a relationship or financially, this is a good time to go over the details.


Negotiations can go well if you make minor adjustments, but no permanent commitments during this cycle. Going over details can benefit you, do anything it takes to keep from overlooking important details or miscommunication. I have seen first hand how Mercury in Rx cycles can cause misunderstandings, as we can get easily frustrated with each other without any real rhyme or reason, it might just not make sense! Also, make sure your tolerant to being asked questions over and over, but be open to the fact that our perception has dipped down into a lower vibrational energy that causes real issues for all of us, and that it may never make sense.


This is a great time to re-evaluate and re-organize your life, work on our thought patterns and how you make decisions. You can walk away from this cycle learning a very valuable tool what works for you and what doesn’t in a deeper way. This cycle provides time for us to do-over anything we want, you can retrace your steps and make things better now. Remember planets go Retrograde all the time, you have lived through many Mercury in Retrograde cycles before and more than likely you will get through this one as well. Mercury also rules our minds and our day-to-day decisions, so when it comes to communication make sure that you pay attention, read over anything again and if you don’t understand, and ask if you head things right the first time, and also use spell check because you’re going to need it! 


Often during a Mercury in Rx friends from the past, family members, and clients will pop back in our lives! Again this can be a good thing, this doesn’t need to be negative. But it does not necessarily mean if a lover or even a friend from the past shows up that is is meant to be or fated to be together forever, it simply means there is unfinished business or something you need to pay attention to heal, there is always a lesson in Mercury’s madness. 


It’s my wish for you to be educated more so on the benefits of this transit versus the negativity that Retrograde planets get, and I am not above it to be honest, as many Mercury in Retrograde cycles have hit me very hard, and if you know me you know how much I can dislike this time. But we are in this together, so perhaps together you can walk away using some of this advice and make the most out of this energy. When planets go Retrograde (Rx), the cosmos is giving us a second chance at something and even a third, because it allows you to retrace your steps three times, that’s how they work! So we get to go back and do things over, before moving forward again. Sometimes this is a huge blessing, as they say the second time around can be the best and even a third under this influence. 
May this Mercury in Retrograde cycle be a good one. 


Have a good Mercury in Retrograde, may it be a easy one for you.

Venus Enters Aquarius – Love Is Strange!

VENUS ENTERS AQUARIUS
Love is Strange!
from March 1, 2019 – March 26, 2019

With the planet of LOVE & VALUES shifting into intellectual AQUARIUS, we have a more high-minded approach to matters of the heart, because we are more emotionally detached in our relationships.

If single you may desire someone to love that shares your same values. Still following our hearts leads us to seek out not only a partner but a true friend. If your already committed than you will be less interested in what mundane tasks you share, but you can feel more like discovering new, different, or unique ways of relating to your partner.

We are drawn to the unconventional, as we seek out freedom and independence in our intimate relationships and close personal friendships. We also might need some space in social situations. Even though we aren’t as attached this is a good time to meet new people. Get out there and participate in life and be social, perhaps attend events with folks who share common interests and goals.

Under this Aquarius influence, we can be extremely faithful to our partners and friends but it has to be on our own terms! This can be a wonderful time to strengthen the bonds of an ongoing relationship or partnership. But not a great time for romance, we aren’t looking for mushy lovey-dovey kind of connections. Remember we relate better in our relationships through our minds, so intellectually. If you want to grow closer to someone single or committed, work on building a more solid friendship with them during this time. Being true friends also means we allow our partners the space to freely express themselves, and also prefer to treat others fairly.

This is a time when people tend to get experimental in their relationships, or even when just playing the dating field. Since the SUN just shifted into Pisces we can enjoy some seriously sexy fun! (right there Mr. Gray! Uh huh!)

And since VENUS rules how we love and support one another, you may feel like doing some kind of charity or humanitarian work. We need the people who will fight and advocate for those who cannot do it for themselves. It’s a great time to help others especially in groups of different kinds. Join programs and causes you feel passionate about, and hopefully you’ll make a difference in someone’s life in one way or another.

Sun In Pisces – A Time For Healing


For all Zodiac Signs
“Happy Birthday Pisces”

The Sun has shifted into imaginative and compassionate Pisces today, February 18, 2019, and remains there through March 20, 2019. So it’s officially season. This energy is about connecting to your spiritual/highest-self. It’s a sensitive, wistful, compassionate time. We are strongly in tune with our powers of intuition and emotions. Making decisions or commitments may not be easy under the influence, but tapping into our intuition is.


While the Sun is in Pisces our inner muse must be nurtured and connected too, this helps us heal and move forward. The veils between this world and other realms come down now and boundaries dissolve so we can feel energetically connected to other people and their energies. It’s important to be kind to yourself and others during this time, and surround yourself with loving positive energy. 


We’re plugged into everything around us because the veils between this physical world and other spiritual realms have dissolved. As these boundaries come down we must make sure to “shield” ourselves spiritually and physically. so if you consider yourself to already be a sensitive, Psychic, or Empath, might I suggest putting up some sort of spiritual shields to block out outside energies.


Pay attention to when you sense someone else’s feelings rather than your own and don’t attach to them. We’re more aware of the energies around us and are like sponges absorbing all of what we experience. We’re more sensitive and emotional during this time, so we tend to express ourselves in more creative spiritual ways.


It’s a good time to dissolve any fears or doubts you’ve been holding on to, so let go of illusions and daydreams that have no real way of ever coming true. Instead, practice connecting to our higher-self through spiritual practices and getting involved in creative endeavors. Allow this energy to flow and just be. So being involved in things like music and energy healing can help us feel more vital, and raises our personal vibration. It’s important to take time-outs and listen to our intuition now, but if we choose to ignore these feelings or messages we get from the Universe, we can become anxiety-ridden and easily frustrated.


Our bodies and minds sync deeply together now, trying to stay with the beat of the Universe, as Pisces energy is more ethereal and dreamy feeling. Our dream world awake and asleep can be very strong, and those who have crossed often show up to visit during this time, (especially, since we are just about to start the shadow period of Mercury’s Retrograde phase, also in the sign of Pisces!), these energies tend to bring back things from the past. 


The more shadow side to this energy is we can feel more like escaping our reality, so this can be done with drugs or substances that only harm us in the end. We are more vulnerable to the world’s harsh reality and energies, which can make us feel emotionally down and out, and some folks may start feeling down or depressed by this influence. It’s important to connect to your spiritual self as I mentioned to keep your vibrational energy higher and avoid these pitfalls. 


To do well in this energy you should allow things to just be, and stay aware of your surroundings, ask yourself what your resisting and stop or it will persist.

Full Moon Guide



“How does the ‘Full Moon’ affect you, and how do you utilize its potent energy?”


During a ‘Full Moon’ you have an opportunity to bring about some positive changes in your life if you use this energy wisely. It either can increase the positive energy around you or it can be an emotional wrecking ball, the choice is yours. This guide is a helpful reminder about how to work with the ‘Full Moon’ and its energies.


Remember a ‘Full Moon’ disperses a lot of energy, and that energy pours into each and every one of us. So the key to achieving success during a ‘Full Moon’ is to stay calm and embrace its positive effects. Whatever is going on with your mind, body and spirit will certainly be felt much stronger during a ‘Full Moon’, and our emotions can seem extremely intense. A ‘Full Moons’ energy is very powerful, so it’s important to know where you’re directing it. You can start by staying focused on positive intentions from your heart. Which means being real and authentic with yourself.


We’ve all heard of how the ‘Full Moon’ affects human behavior, causing chaos; as it fills up emergency rooms, but we also see random acts of crime spike dramatically during a Full Lunar cycle. Not only does the Moon actually create the tides in the ocean, science has also proven that the ocean literally ‘swells’ during a ‘Full Moon.’ The human body is made up of around 70% water. If the ‘Full Moon’ can move an entire ocean it certainly can and does have an impact on our human bodies that are mostly made of water. Water is strongly associated with and symbolizes our emotional well-being.


So just as the power of the ‘Full Moon’ can make entire oceans swell and move, the water we hold within ourselves becomes charged up from its energy, and this causes emotional side effects. The energy of a ‘Full Moon’ has a strong influence on us, hence why people act out days prior to its actual being Full…. this usually starts about three days prior and up to three days after it became Full. Just think about how the ‘Full Moons’ energy is affecting each and every one of us, literally from the inside out, it’s a very powerful, potent energy. All of the Moon’s cycles affect us differently, (but they do affect us,) because they’re part of us. The ‘Full Moon’ perhaps having the most dramatic and noticeable impact.


Ask yourself just how much personal power you have? If one can stay focused and use the ‘Full Moons’ energy to send out positive intentions, you can create and manifest energy out here…in this physical reality. It’s really all just about being conscious and aware of what you’re creating. Water molecules have been proven to hold an emotional charge within our bodies. How you feel is how they react, and they DO react according to your energetic intentions. So if you’re happy or sad, positive or negative, the water within you is affected on a molecular level. If we concentrate on this energy and focus on what we truly desire, and then visualize that – even more importantly FEEL it – can you imagine the possibilities! We can literally create what it is we desire out here in this physical world. I find that to be exciting! If you’re more interested in understanding how the water in our bodies affects us, check out this website on Dr. Masaru Emoto’s work, “The Water Crystals of Masaru Emoto”


This means if we visualize and then “FEEL” our intentions – as the Moon grows full – and I mean truly “FEEL” what it is we want, we can literally transform our feelings and intentions into reality in this energy. It’s my hope you can make sense of this and use the power of positive thinking and visualization to manifest your Dreams into physical reality; the ‘Full Moon’s’ energy is just a bit of Magic we need to make it happen. Let me know what you do with this info, and if you’re brave enough to test the waters?


The ‘Full Moons’ energy is both intense and loving. If you are aware of these energies, it gives you an opportunity every month for both emotional and spiritual growth. Here are some tips to follow during the ‘Full Moon’, that can help bring in more positive energies…and release old energies that just simply don’t work anymore in your life. Here are some simple guidelines to follow during the ‘Full Moon’:


1. Don’t allow arguing and don’t get angry!

The ‘Full Moon’ is a time of releasing and one should stay calm, breathe deeply and let things go. Try breathing through the moments that are difficult and be forgiving. If you just can’t let something go and must express yourself, try writing how you’re feeling down or telling a friend, and wait for at least a few days after the ‘Full Moon’ and then again write down how you’re feeling, see the comparison. Everything is going to be more intense and amplified. So just keep the energy flowing and moving in a happy, more uplifting direction.


2. Think positive thoughts!

During the ‘Full Moon’ each month, you have very powerful, strong energies working in your corner. So if you can balance your emotions and focus on positive thoughts, they’ll be energized and multiplied. If you spend even a short amount of time upon waking and before going to sleep, visualizing what you truly desire, or on what’s good or positive in your life while being thankful for your blessings…it can be magical! Remember “the attitude of gratitude.”


For example, write a gratitude list and some thank you notes to the Universe. Take walks and take in the beauty that is around you. Look in a mirror and say positive affirmations to yourself, (yes this really works.) Visualize positive thoughts and/or desires being sprinkled with “Moon Dust” and watch them grow like flowers in a garden.


3. Visualize your Dreams manifesting.

The ‘Full Moon’ is the right time to do manifestation work around releasing what is no longer working or serving you. So sharpen your techniques by using your imagination to set goals. Take the time to write what you would like to manifest and what energy you’d like to see gone or are done with. You could even make a Vision Board with pictures that represent your goals, it can be the actual goal or the word that represents your dreams and wishes, place them on a cork board, make a collage and hang it up on a wall so you can see it every day. This puts you in a constant state of awareness and helps bring the energies that you want to you. When you spend time focusing on your dreams and goals, or Setting Intentions as it’s called, during the ‘Full Moon’ it can give you an energy boost!


4. Practice Meditation alone or with others.

The ‘Full Moon’ pours out so much energy, that meditating during one can create a calm and still energy that is profoundly strong. Finding a sacred space to practice meditation can help tremendously. There’s a lot of groups that meditate during a ‘Full Moon’, so look for spiritual groups, centers, or online groups that come together to meditate. It can be a very powerful healing and manifest work.


5. Send others blessings, be of service, practice acts of kindness.

Having this powerful energy at your disposal makes a ‘Full Moon’ the opportune time to pay it forward! Send healing energies, forgiveness, white light and energy out… out to everyone, you can think of, including strangers. Send loving and kind energy to your friends and family. Then go deeper and send peaceful energy out to the world (which we need more than ever), think of the places in the world that are experiencing strife, hardships, poverty, or war. This can open doors for those who are in need.


Whatever you believe in or faith you might have you can’t deny the way you feel during a ‘Full Moon,’ so at the very least take one small step from your heart and try to work with this energy. Test your theories and have a Blessed Full Moon!

February Full Moon


February Full Moon – Feb 19th


This month’s Full Moon is a special Super Moon, which is when the Moon is closer to the Earth, so the Moon will look brighter, larger, and closer than an average Full Moon, and this will be the largest Super Full Moon of 2019. 


This Full Moon is also accompanying a bright Star called Regulus in the constellation Leo the Lion. You can expect the sky to be pretty bright for a few nights. 


This Full Moon has a few different ancient names actually. A very long time ago different cultures and people gave the Moons names by month and the changing seasons. During that time they followed the Lunar Month instead of the Solar Year. 



February’s Full Moon is often called the Snow Moon and it has been known also as the Hunger Moon, the Storm Moon, and the Chaste Moon.


The Full Moon on the 19th occurs in the detailed sign of Virgo in the first degree, this can bring more awareness around the things that need more order in our lives. Something usually becomes exposed or is illuminated, which helps us get in touch with the things that we may have been neglecting or putting off, especially regarding our work, habits, services, health, and routines. We may receive some strong intuitive signs or messages from the Universe, and our feelings may come from a place of being frustrated or stuck.


During this particular Full Moon is the perfect time to work on manifestation. It also tends to give us the courage to speak up and say goodbye to negative situations and people who have been bringing us down. This Full Moon is a time to reevaluate and finally figure out what’s no longer working or is needed in our lives. It’s a time to release something, or someone perhaps. It’s when we let go and cleanse the space we’re in. This Full Moon being in the sign of Virgo, just magnifies its effects. 


The Full Snow Moon will occur on Tuesday, February 19th, 2019 is in the sign of Virgo. Although our adrenaline is pumping during this time, the energy will eventually fade, but you in the meanwhile, can get new projects off the ground and once the energy has dropped you can maintain your motivation and not worry so much about initiating something.


The interesting part of this February Full Moon is how it is connecting with the other planets in the Cosmos. And the Full Moon in Virgo is making a rather nice “Trine” connection to Mars in Taurus and is close to electric thought provoking Uranus at the end of the sign of fiery Aries. This makes for a highly charged up Full Moon folks, and since the Full Moon already is an emotional time, we must be careful not to allow this energy to overwhelm us, as we can be more anxious and worried than usual during this time.



Mars recent move into the sign of Taurus is also connecting to this Full Moon. Looking at how the Zodiac Sign of Taurus acts when it’s angry or passionate about something (Mars Traits) helps us fully understand how it will affect us during this Full Moon. Occasionally, we could get angry and easily irritated. Some folks will reach a boiling point about a particular issue that may have been more easily handled before or at least tolerated. So our patience is wearing thin and some of us might need to take decisive action.


There’s a strong urge or desire to break free from anything that is restricting or limiting us, with Mars conjunct Uranus during this Full Moon. Even when it’s not an erratic Full Moon this connection is unpredictable and can be volatile, so watch out for others who get too pumped up and tend to lose their tempers! 


Luckily, there are other Planetary connections being made to the Sun and Moon during this time that help keep our impulsive behavior more under control and that lowers the chances of upsetting events!


Often there comes a time when we need to take certain actions and be more proactive, especially in areas of our lives where we have held back or gotten lazy. With the outer-planet Uranus involved, there is a theme of destiny at work during this Full Moon, and it can put us under pressure to make some important changes. 


During the Full Moon, you will be able to look at your life and quickly size up what is possible and more manageable, because you are more realistic about your schedule and limitations with it being in the sign of Virgo. There can be a reality check around what you are overdoing in certain areas of your life. But mental Mercury is, fortunately, helping us with insight to work on a more doable plan for the future. Plus our negotiating skills in most situations are on point, and that may give us a little more time. Mercury right now is in the sign of Pisces and with the Full Moon in Virgo negotiations are more possible. 


The Full Moon in Virgo can bring more exciting opportunities that help you feel more alive and expressive. Whatever might have been confused or depressed in your life might just seem to come together and make sense during this cycle. It can allow you to have more restored faith in your current path and give you more confidence to attain your longer-term goals for the future. 


With all these powerful influences at play it’s a great time to learn how to do Full Moon energy work, and for setting some intentions, as we should be working on letting go of what no longer works for us or is blocking our path to something better during the Full Moon

Have a Happy, Safe, and Blessed Full Moon

Venus in Capricorn

“Love Gets Serious” For All Zodiac Signs:


Venus the planet of love, business, money, and lust changes Zodiac signs today from optimistic, adventurous Sagittarius to realistic, accomplished Capricorn. Venus will be in this sign from February3rd, 2019 to March 1st, 2019. 


Venus moves fast folks around the Zodiac wheel in exact order, so we must take advantage of the energies she puts off while in the sign of Capricorn for about the next month. 


With this placement, our relationships tend to be more on the practical side. That’s because we tend to see people for who they are, and are not afraid to lay the cards out on the table, as we simply take things more seriously. Since we appreciate maturity in our relationships, we take our time when it comes to love and slowly warm up to others, but we can make long-term commitments. There will be more focus on business relationships as well during this time. 


It’s time to think about who you can count on. Do the people you care and love for follow through on their promises? The planet of LOVE and AFFECTION moves through the sign of Capricorn and draws your attention to the most real aspects of your relationships. No matter what someone says if they can’t commit to you and the relationship they are having with you it usually won’t last. So you will know true love when someone is making you the priority, and if they make some sort of sacrifice for you. Rid your life of those wondering Romeos and Juliets and open your heart to people you can trust.


Venus also is connected to our finances and what we value, from people to material things. Therefore, it’s the perfect time to get serious and make long-term plans in these parts of our lives. It’s a time to get real and take inventory around what’s coming in and out in your business and personal finances. 


If you are a Sun-Sign or Rising-Sign in Taurus or Libra, you may feel more focused and serious over the next month. As your heart may want to make more practical and attainable plans for the future. If you’re a Capricorn Sun-Sign or Rising-sign, as long as Venus is in your sign, you can attract more love, abundance, and beauty into your life. 


No matter what your Zodiac sign, enjoy this more practical, stabilized energy while it lasts.

Setting Intentions with the New Moon!


Setting Intentions under the New Moon in Aquarius for February 2019!

The New Moon will be quite energizing in the sign of Aquarius on Feb. 4th. This lunation brings in new beginnings and hopefully a fresh start to our lives. This means we should be focusing on helping heal the world by embodying positive energies for our future, with our hopes and dreams. This can push us out side of our comfort zones. This is a time of being awakened and we will see exactly what that looks like through our visions, and when we socialize and brainstorm.

This is a time when feelings need to be expressed in our friendships and partnerships, as we develop a more open mind. This is also a great time to push forward with whatever we were releasing around the Total Lunar Eclipse on Jan 21st. And this influence can help us finish up the little things that need to be sorted out, and put out of the way to make room for such the big cosmic shifts that are changing things so rapidly now.

This is an opportune time to ask the Universe for New Beginnings. The intentions that are set during a New Moon Ritual will set you on the right path towards your desires. Have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher-self, higher power, Guides, Angels, etc), and ask for the New Moon to open up the paths towards your deepest desires, or ask to be led to your manifestations.

Some of you might be asking, how does one set Intentions under the New Moon?

Well first you should set the mood, create the energy. Light some candles and burn some incense or sage, then perhaps play some calming meditative music. Get comfortable and simply write down your deepest desires, wishes and questions on a piece of paper or in a journal. Think about what would you like to manifest, create, and what energy your trying to bring into your life. If you don’t ask you will never know the answers.

As your doing a ritual or Setting your Intentions , here’s some helpful questions you can think about.

What are you choosing to have in your life?

What changes would you like to see in your life?

What are you or should you be letting go of?

How do you feel about what is happening in your life right now,?

What do you want to create around your long-term goals and in your future?

The next step is to visualize and feel what you’ve written down. Close your eyes and take several deep breaths, and imagine entering into your heart (the space you love from.) Now see yourself in the desire or dream your creating. For example, see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that amazing Soul-Mate, getting that job you’ve always wanted, or driving that new car. You can’t just THINK IT you have to make sure and FEEL IT, as if you are already really experiencing what your visualizing out in this physical world.

Allow the Universe to show you what paths to follow over the next month, and allow the New Moon show you the paths you are supposed to be going down so you can live a fuller more happy life, and obtain the goals and dreams you already have.

New Moon Timing

The New Moon occurs at the following times below: but we can start our energy Intentions work Sunday Morning on Feb 3rd, when the Moon shifts into Aquarius, and IS NOT in the Void anymore.

CST February 4 at 3:04 pm

EST February 4 at 4:04 pm

Have a Happy, Lucky, and Abundant New Moon!

THE SUN ENTERS AQUARIUS

Get Your Freak On!
January 20 – February 18


The SUN shifts gears into more future thinking AQUARIUS.


Happy Birthday to all my Aquarius people and welcome to Aquarius Season.


This month-long cycle keeps us hungry for knowledge and experience. We now start looking for new ways to do things, as we search for what feels original, different, and unique! We become increasingly aware of what isn’t working anymore in our lives and strive to find new ways of looking at life as our minds open to new perspectives. With the Sun now in Aquarius, you will feel more even-tempered, artistic, sociable, peaceful in your general attitude to life, humanitarian, warm and loving.

You may just start to feel more like mingling again, and not as heavy or weighed down, as our overall attitude is more peaceful. But we can get rather nerve-wracked and anxious if we start focusing on what we are lacking in our lives. Turn any worrisome energy you might experience into something you can manifest, by setting goals and making plans. Tackle one thing at a time and work on yourself, it’s much easier to think about ourselves when the Sun is in Aquarius because we more detached emotionally, and can put our feelings to the side just long enough to take care of important business.


Astro Alert 
There’s a whole bunch of planets in the sign of more grounded Capricorn currently, which doesn’t mesh well with free-spirited AQUARIUS. Under the Sun in Aquarius, we can find all the structure and order to be too rigid, cold, and restrictive.

Now that it’s officially AQUARIUS SEASON we as individuals are going to be seeking more freedom and independence. We’re going to work very hard now to free ourselves from any restrictions, limitations, and inhibitions that keep us feeling blocked or constrained, rather than safe and comfortable like we have been over the last month during Capricorn Season.

There’s a lot of movement and excitement usually during Aquarius Season, as amazing things are about to be discovered! We tend to be way more open-minded now and can experience an awareness or knowingness. As Ah-Ha moments occur more often, and those amazing epiphanies, ya know those moments you suddenly realize something or rediscover something you weren’t aware of or had forgotten!

Many of you haven’t been so tapped into your spirit lately, with the Sun and mental Mercury both in the Earthy sign of Capricorn. This shift gives us a chance to stretch our minds, bodies, and spirits. So enjoy it!

Some things you can do during this time try to express yourself more openly and outwardly. Be open to trying new ways of communicating and expressing yourself to flow better with this energy. This is a time where we are often quite eccentric. Maybe try to doing something more investigative and take the time to learn something, involving science, Astrology, Metaphysics, or New Age-ish, as lots of folks tend to dapple in the occult during this time. It’s just a good time to study anything new, different, bizarre, or innovative.

This is time of self-expression, as our thoughts and actions both, drive our ambitions. Conventional or traditional values are changed up during this time, With fresh and exciting horizons ahead we are motivated by Spirit!
