Every Mercury retrograde, like clockwork, I find myself flooded with messages, emails, and comments on social media asking me what is essentially the same basic question, which typically sounds a little something like this: “I’m planning to do _____ and just realized Mercury will be in retrograde! Will this turn out alright? Should I reschedule? Help!” Read More

Take this advice to heart and I promise things will go much more smoothly for you during this rather tricky astrological period!
The average person moves 11.7 times in their lifetime. Before you start packing the moving boxes, you want to feel confident about your answer to the question “where should I move?” That’s where astrocartography can be helpful!

When you’re thinking about moving, you want to feel confident in your move and be energetically aligned with your new environment. In this post, we answer some of the frequently asked questions about the correlation between where you live and your astrological sign. Read More

Pluto’s conjunction to Saturn and the South Node in Capricorn represents a deeply karmic period of time in which the entire fate of our society will be irreversibly altered. As corruption within our governing bodies continues to be exposed, and the military-industrial-medical-educational complex becomes increasingly undermined by the free dissemination of information via the internet, the oppressive forces within the corporatocracy will continue to tighten the reigns out of sheer desperation in an attempt to maintain order and control over the masses. Pluto’s role in this mix is to expose deep, hidden truths underlying the driving forces that provide the structure and foundation for both the official and unspoken rules we, as a society, abide by. Within Capricornian institutions such as the government and the corporations that have now assimilated with the government and have outright usurped control, lies, corruption, greed, and other forms of abuse of power will be exposed. The governing bodies as we know them today will undergo a major restructuring on all levels. The events of this time period will have aftereffects that will last anywhere from several years to several centuries. What occurs throughout this time is hugely important as the influence of this very rare transit is sure to alter the course of human history. Read More
Electional Astrology refers to the art of choosing the best timing for an important event or undertaking based on the planetary alignments at this time. Electional astrology helps us to insure that we’re making the best possible use of the energy available to us, increasing our chances of success when initiating important changes or planning meaningful life events. Electional techniques can also be used on a much smaller scale in our daily lives for planning out projects and important tasks for the week ahead. Because there’s often little we can do to work around longer-term (and often difficult) planetary aspects on a day-to-day level, aligning our energy with the transits of the Moon is typically our best bet in utilizing astrological planning for everyday life. Below you’ll find a short video tutorial on using basic electional astrology techniques to make the best use of the energy available throughout the lunar month! Read More
Uranus transits in the horoscope bring liberation and change through disrupting stagnant energy. In the fixed, earth sign of Taurus, the structures of our lives that are the most physical, grounded, and otherwise unchanging may take the biggest hits. This will ultimately be to our benefit, as Uranus (aka the “Great Awakener”) shakes us out of complacency by showing us the areas where we’ve become stagnant or stuck, and creates situations in which the status quo is no longer tolerable. This process of delivering insight through disruption and frustration provides a much needed catalyst for growth and positive change. Read More
Today’s Sun-Saturn inconjunct has had me thinking a lot about boundary issues and how these issues play out in my own life and the lives of those around me. Saturn inconjunct or not, if you’re finding yourself overwhelmed by the burden of responsibility you’ve assumed for the benefit of others, chances are you have boundary issues— and, whether you realize it or not, you may have no one to blame but yourself for the less-than-desirable circumstances that have come about as a result.
