2017: The Year Of Conviction And Contradictions

2016 was, of course, the year of change and transition. A rocky, slippery slope that we can see clearer in retrospect was a detour into unknown territory for the purpose of testing our faith and mettle. In many ways 2017 will pick us up out of the ditch and move us forward on a clear trajectory again. Regaining a more visible and structured path does not translate into an easier year; 2017 is a year of contradictions openly challenging our convictions as we’re honing them.

Real Time Astrology: August 2016

 

The summer drags on. There’s a sense of relief as some of the harsh space weather temporarily eases up, but also fatigue from the battle to keep it together. August’s astrological forecast isn’t the easiest thing but it isn’t the worst. It’s better at the beginning than at the end; soak up the Sun of Leo season and restore your courage under the Leo New Moon on August 2nd in preparation for the turbulence.

Spread the good word: the sexy breath of fresh air we all want and need comes with the ingress of jolly lucky celestial giant Jupiter into the sign of Libra on September 9th, 2016. I, along with most astrologers, am very excited about this transit. 2016 has drained a lot of color and glamour and joie de vivre out of us; Jupiter in Libra restores all this and then some.

 

Since August 11th, 2015, we’ve had Jupiter in Virgo. Jupiter is in detriment in Virgo, meaning the planet struggles to express its natural traits. Jupiter is the planet of good luck, good times, good humor; given to largesse and excess. Too much of the good things is Jupiter’s preference. In Virgo, Jupiter’s larger than life exuberance was considerably thwarted; Virgo being the sometimes fussy, persnickety sign focused on micro details and puritanical perfection. Nothing against Jupiter in Virgo; Jupiter is always astrology’s “greater benefic” and makes our lives a little easier regardless of what sign it is in. However, Jupiter in Virgo was Jupiter redux, and spent most of its transit in hard aspects to Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces which further drowned it’s natural buoyancy.

 

Jupiter gets its full mojo back when it moves into Libra. Libra is a [Read more…]

Happy Birthday, America (2016 Edition)

 

Last year, for my post on America’s solar return  (falling every year on Independence Day/4th of July) I talked a little about how, as a country, America is experiencing birthing pains and death gasps simultaneously. Both grow stronger in this new growth cycle of the 2016/2017 solar return.

 

This year, the 4th of July coincides with a powerful New Moon in Cancer. This New Moon will feature, of course, in the solar return of the United States:   [Read more…]

Quickie Observations Of Election Day – November 8th, 2016

 

With communication planet Mercury currently in its home sign Gemini, and as we are nearing my country’s Independence Day/birthday/solar return, I thought it a good idea to mull over what will be in the sky for Election Day, November 8th. Since the beginning of the mutable Grand Cross, none of the Presidential candidates have been come out unscathed, with Trump being continually disowned by members of his own party following the Gemini New Moon hitting him hard as I said it would, and Clinton and the DNC being named in the hacker leak that came out after Mercury went into Gemini, puporting a smear campaign against Trump. Dishonest politicians?! I know, I know, try not to faint from the shock.

Real Time Astrology: March 2016

 

Remember how last month I said the astrology wouldn’t suck and to enjoy it while it lasts? Hope you did! Now, prepare for the ever changing month of March to wash you out and throw curveballs your way! Seriously, though, the astrology in March presents short lived and fluctuating challenges and stressors that require us to bend without breaking.  [Read more…]
