Star Cast for February 13

 

Hello and Welcome to my weekly Star Cast, where I bring you the update on what’s happening in the world of astrology – and how you can apply the wisdom to enrich your life here on earth.

My key phrase for this week is: BOLO –  Be on the Lookout

This week delivers a dynamic conjunction of Uranus and Mars – exact on Wednesday, February 13th. When these two are joined, rebellion is in the air. The issue becomes: what is your price for freedom?

Mars signifies physical energy and vitality, and Uranus delivers sudden actions. Both of these qualities have a positive side, and indeed, Mars conjunct Uranus can add the impetus to accomplish great tasks.

The problem comes when one is dealing with suppressed or shadowed rebellion. Mars also fuels aggression, and Uranus sometimes delivers the last thing you thought you wanted when you least expected it.

So, generally, this is a week to remain calm, be mature, and walk your talk.
When you’re not clear about your motivations, the unpredictable side of this planetary conjunction can manifest. For example, you want to be free of your job; but if you’re holding on to resentment and anger your freedom may show up as time off due to an accident.

Mars conjunct Uranus is also a classic driver of rash behavior. You may be ready to tell someone off, but rather than an attack, why not choose a time for honest and clear communication that honors both parties.

Mercury, the planet of communication, entered watery and intuitive Pisces on Sunday, February 10th. Here, logical Mercury has a chance to surrender to his softer side. Mercury in Pisces favors creativity. Surrender to the beauty of music and poetry to temper the crosshairs of Mars and Uranus.

This week does mellow out by Friday, when the Cancer moon comes in to break the tension. And, again on Saturday, the moon really settles in to modify and soothe the pressure. All in all, we’re building up to another Supermoon Full Moon next week on February 18/19th at zero degrees Virgo.

Virgo is a sign of refinement and purification; looking forward to this elegant Full Moon. 

Wishing you many blessings as you reach for the stars!

Star Cast for February 4

Hello and Welcome to my weekly Star Cast, where I bring you the update on what’s happening in the world of astrology – and how you can apply the wisdom to enrich your life.

My key phrase for this week is: Follow Your Stars.
 
Today is a special day –  the Aquarius New moon arrives this evening. And then, tomorrow, February 5th, it’s officially Chinese New year; the year of the Pig, aka the Boar.

There are many activities surrounding the Chinese New Year, for example, one of the things recommended is to avoid crying children and do not visit medical doctors. It’s believed that how you spend this day, Tuesday the 5th, will impact the rest of the year, so, make Tuesday a day of grace. 

The New Moon is always a time to set your intentions for the month ahead. Aquarius is a sign of acknowledging our need for other people.  Practice honor, respect, and having good times together. Remember your friends and associates, and while you’re at it, do something good for Mother Earth this week.

Chiron, the planet/asteroid of healing is preparing to leave the sign of Pisces and move into Aries. This is a powerful time for personal healing. Over the next month, long lasting aliments and even ancestral or hereditary ailments can be successfully addressed. Surely, they are coming up for review. Chiron is deeply into the last breath of Pisces. If you’re experiencing a healing crisis, or emotional turmoil, understand that Chiron the Shaman is active in your life now. 

Also today, Venus enters Capricorn, after having been in Sagittarius for about a month. Venus in Capricorn is more serious and steadfast.  If and when you give your word you’ll be called to hold to your commitment.

Another dynamic day this week is Thursday when the Sun and Jupiter form a favorable sextile, the aspect of opportunity. In addition to many lunar aspects, Mercury and Mars are also sextile.

Basically, this means that it’s a great day to reach out and either take a risk, or grow in some other way. The Universes has much to offer on Thursday, so, be open to opportunities and ready to take action.

With the Sun in Aquarius, the area of opportunity will likely come through other people – work associates, friends, or even chance meetings. This is an important time to get outside of your usual routine and look at the world through fresh eyes.

Remember that Mars and Uranus are still traveling very closely together in Aries. These two planets can trigger unexpected events and or actions, they are both radical action takers, and you may be promoted to do something that you’ve never done before.

Plus, Pluto and Saturn are circling the wagons in preparation for their solidarity conjunction of 2020. Saturn is a builder; Pluto is a destroyer. Saturn has restraint and order; Pluto is wholesale change.

January 1 of 2020 opens with Mercury, Jupiter, Sun, Saturn, and Pluto all in Capricorn. And Mars stands guard at 29 degrees of Scorpio. Surely there will be a new order to the world, but the question is: what will that be? 

Hold on to the option for a season of empowerment rather than disintegration. Focus on building and even reconstruction of yourself! Heal your body, feed your mind, and be nurtured by your soul.

Star Cast for January 14

Hello and Welcome to my weekly Star Cast, where I bring you the update on what’s happening in the world of astrology – and how you can apply the wisdom to enrich your life here on earth.

My key word for this week is:
Speak Your Truth
This week begins with a favorable sextile between Mercury and Neptune.The sextile is an aspect of opportunity meaning that  there are lots of good things available to you today, but you have to reach out and make them come to you. Carpe Diem.

Keep busy today and don’t lose heart because also today, the moon conjuncts Uranus just before 11 AM Eastern time. Moon conjunct Uranus is an energizer bunny aspect –if you have a lot to get done today, you may well have to work into the evening hours, but the good news is that you’ll get much accomplished, and in fact, this aspect between the moon and Uranus really favors creativity.

So, it’s a good Monday, although it may be a long one.

Just after the Moon joins Uranus, it enters Taurus where it stays until Wednesday. A Taurus moon favors productivity and helps to insure that your work will be long lasting. Be sure to take time out and smell the flowers because beauty is one of the true gifts of Taurus.

The best day this week is Friday, January 18th. First, is a lovely Venus trine Mars – this is a famous lovers aspect, so, if you have someone special with whom you want to ignite a spark – Friday is that day to do it.

Venus represents the feminine and Mars is about masculine, so when these two meet in a favorable trine – romance is kindled. Plus, both are in fire signs, Venus in Sagittarius and Mars in Aries – wow – this is a lovely combination.

Plus, on Friday Mercury conjuncts Pluto – what this means is that not only do you have the light heartedness of Mars trine Venus, but you also add some deep communication. Pluto makes you honest, and Mercury helps you speak in a clear but also light hearted way.

Remember, Uranus is now direct and enters Taurus on March 5th where he stays until 2026. You’ll hear many things about Uranus in Taurus, but know that long standing empires were built with this combination, and generally this is a favorable placement for Uranus.

Uranus retrograde was a time when old patterns were broken apart. Now, with Uranus in direct motion, it’s time to focus on your holistic and complete heath, body, mind, and soul.

Wishing you many blessings as you reach for the stars!

Taking Action and Finding Clarity in the Lunar Shift

scorpio-new-moon
Last week’s Scorpio New Moon signals a time to make a commitment.

My key phrase for this week is: Commitment

This week activates the promise of last week’s November 7th Scorpio new moon. Moving into the first quarter moon, you are being asked to take action.

In the 28 day lunation cycle, which is the time it takes to go from one new moon to the next, the first quarter moon urges you to take action; and to do that, you must make a commitment.

Many times people feel that they must make the ‘right’ decision, but consider that sometimes it’s necessary to just make a decision and see it through.

This may be the case now. If you must take action, this week opens a portal that allows you to do your duty. You must be firm though. That’s because two major celestial events happened on Friday, November 16th: Venus stationed direct and Mercury went retrograde.

Granted, this can cause confusion and even more delay. That’s why, if you must take action this week, do it ASAP. By Saturday, you may be feeling confused again.

Finding Quiet Clarity

Confusion that prevents you from committing will be an issue, and it’s vitally important that you find your way to clarity. There are many techniques to quiet your mind and then connect with the wisdom of your body.

Jupiter is now in Sagittarius, the sign where he is extra powerful. Much larger than the earth, Jupiter has 63 moons! Wouldn’t it be fun to go there and see so many moons in the sky?  You can think of Jupiter as a great, big old gas giant with lots of minions, as expressed by the Moons, to do his bidding.

Learning to ask for and accept help will be one of our lessons here on earth as Jupiter moves through Sagittarius until December of 2019. Moons are helpers, people who have come to serve and help you shine your Light.

There are many stressors in all parts of life now, but especially in a time of trauma, it’s important to return to your core values. What do you really believe? Do you see the cup as half full, or half empty? Who do you want to be? What do you want to accomplish?

Think about these questions this week, as you focus on commitment.

The stars will guide your way.
