ASTRO & TAROT FORECASTS
Weekly Intuitive & Astro Forecast
May 21st-27th 2018
Activity speeds up this week! It’s like we went from a slow and steady snail pace to “off to the races!”
The mind is quick thinking, we feel the urge or at least have the opportunity to socialize more. Some of you are focusing on tests and studying. This is partly because son moved into Gemini at the start of this week on Monday. The only warning I have to give with this is the fact that for the majority of this week- Monday through Friday, but especially Wednesday- you have a tendency to bite off more than you can chew, exaggerate, or say and promise things that you can’t later honor.
Mercury the planet the rules communication is still in Taurus reminding you to pace yourself but most of this week he meets opposite Jupiter creating the potential for us to say and do too much. There is a risk of you getting yourself into trouble later with this tendency to overpromise. We are idealistic, anxious, excited and full of ideas so it becomes impossible at times to reel this energy in.
The Shift of Change on the Horizon
Sun trine Mars makes us feel capable and ready to usher in these new beginnings. We can feel the shift of change on the horizon and our energetically ready for what is happening but at the same time everything needs to come with perfect timing or you risk overlooking important details.
I can’t ignore mars in Aquarius is still boxing with Uranus so we all have a tendency to be a little impulsive or reckless in areas we would normally be careful with. It’s important to keep this in mind this week. Friday is actually the perfect day to six and we visit the areas of your life you seen the most drastic change. Maybe ‘revisit’ is not the right word but to give them your attention.
Have 'the Talk', Schedule that Meeting!
Mercury trine Pluto presents the chance to make powerful changes based upon your intuition and highest division. Schedule important talks to happen on this day, meet with important people in your life, take time to concentrate and study even on a Friday! While most relaxing and winding down after the craziness of this week there still a chance for you to make one last power move before the weekend comes to a close.
My last warning for this week is Venus the planet that rules love and relationships sits opposite Saturn and this can test relationships as well as your wallet.
Bonds between people can be tested as issues of emotional support, caring, and thoughtfulness surface. People (yourself included) can field a bite of abandonment and isolation. Money is stretched or you are forced to spend a lot which can momentarily be frustrating. Take this weekend easy when it comes to unnecessary spending if you were trying to save. Don’t panic if you’re making an investment – this transit just shows how hard it may feel to let go of what you’ve worked so hard to save. The new moon next week will bring in new opportunities so don’t worry too hard!
Last Intuitive Message:
This week I am getting the message that there is a tendency to focus on lack, what isn’t working, and what is missing so we end up ignoring what is right and unfolding. There’s a need to be clear with your words and to see things for what they actually are not to be clouded or distracted by emotion. This helps put things into perspective turning even obstacles into blessings!
"April 29th at 8:58 pm ESTwe have a potent full moon in the sign of Scorpio!
The energy of this moon is intense and powerful as it is pushing you into a space of complete honesty and vulnerability in order to manifest your heart’s truest desires. Trust and a level of total openness to what the Universe has in store for you is required as this moon is signaling an overhaul of transformation in your life that can shake up your normal comfort zones.Full moons are typically highly emotional times because the moon rules our emotions and intuition but this Scorpio full moon will be passionately felt and is working to reveal all to you… you can no longer hide behind the shadows!
Pluto (the co-ruler of Scorpio) is newly retrograde during this full moon and connects you to your shadow side, your secret wishes, and passion. Pluto’s role and responsibility in your life is to cleanse and destroy the outdated and rotten in order to birth and build things and people of a greater purpose that are in alignment with your destiny. The process sometimes is painful but necessary to your growth and ability to thrive.
During the night of full moon and the days following it you’ll be made aware of your highest purpose, your karma, passions, and vulnerabilities. This is because Scorpio full moon wants to push you into a place of complete alignment with your soul purpose and the things that are destined to reach you in this life. If you have been feeling like there are pieces missing or that you are lost or maybe in need of a release of built-up tension or anxiety this moon will work to place you in the right place at the right time for that to happen. You must be open to being completely vulnerable and trusting with what doors close, what doors open, listening to your gut instinct, and acting on power you didn’t even know you had!
The Scorpio full moon is supported by Saturn and the north node which both work to connect you to your karma to benefit you potentially for the rest of your life... if you are open to it! This moon can bring in soulmates, lasting personal transformation, progress with your soul’s work and dream jobs. Basically, anything that is of a higher quality and purpose in your life that the universe believes and knows that you are ready to take to the next level is ready to manifest into your space now!
This moon is highly vulnerable because it reveals to you the secrets of your heart's true desires. Sometimes we hid those truths away from others or ourselves because we are afraid of what will happen if we don’t get it or achieve it. Scorpio energy will simply not allow you to coast by on the superficial- it wants you to set intentions for your heart's intimate desires and with this, you may even have to release fears and anxieties to give space for what is to come. Pluto & Scorpio rule the death and rebirth cycle so all that is stripped away will be born into something with new and fresh energy.
Also, Saturn retrograde is removing the old rigid blockages that have stood in your way. He sits proudly opposite the vertex point that triggers fated encounters during this full moon and has made an agreement with the universe to finally dismantle and open the door since you have agreed to learn the lessons of your past!
The sun squares the north node bringing you into a space where you will be challenged with tests to your growth so you must be bold and fearless to refuse anything below your vibration and step into a space where you are on the same frequency level of things and people you are striving to attract and achieve!
Mars (the planet that rules action) is conjunct Pluto (planet of transformation) creating a power surge within you that you can’t miss!
Channel this energy to focus on your intention and what you truly desire… no matter how impossible it seems! Mars and Pluto together are unstoppable levels of energy! Nothing can stand in their way when they move together like this on your behalf!
Mercury rules the mind and focus- this is a key in working your will and magic. Mercury is also aspecting the north node which brings in news that can open doors, end an era in your life, and set you free to begin the next phase!
With this moon, remember that emotion and passion combined with power and vulnerability are your tools for manifestation!
Here’s How to Manifest Your Heart’s True Desires the Energy of the Scorpio Full Moon:
- Start by drawing a bath using Epsom or Dead Sea salts. You will be working closely with the energy of release and cleansing so a detox bath is essential to assist in removing lingering energy and blockages. Natural earth salts work wonders with energy purification.
- Add chicory root, geranium, cinnamon, eucalyptus, lemon, dragon’s blood, juniper, lovage root, or mums to your bath water stirring them in a clockwise motion. If you don’t have these herbs or natural oils you can use simple herbs like rosemary, lavender, or lemongrass which can be easily found.
- As you sink into in your herbal soak open yourself up to the release of all blockages. If emotions well up, allow yourself to cry and release them. Even tears of emotion work as added blessings to bath water making magic and manifestation even more potent!
- When you are ready, remove yourself from the bath water and move into a sacred space where you are able to set intentions. Write down all the blockages you have been experiencing. After you have made a full list, take a dark black pen or marker and cross each one of the items off your list saying, “I release and let you go. The cord between us is cut and I am free of this (person or habit or thing).”
- Finally, in a safe space burn the list and release the ashes to the universe thanking your angels and guides for working on your behalf. Blow the ashes out into the wind.
- Feel free to move on to writing your intentions for what you are wanting to manifest in your life now, realizing that the way you feel now is stronger and more powerful than ever after the release ceremony!"
Watch the Scorpio Full Moon Video
As Mercury Retrograde turns direct Saturn and Pluto flip their rotations this week! So much of the universe is asking us to slow and steady our pace instead of plowing through always and all the time. This is a part of the process of learning balance in ALL areas of our lives.
This week we start strong with the Aries New Moon moving us into position like a bow and arrow. Uranus (the planet of unexpected surprises) was sitting almost directly under this new moon pushing us to listen to our hunches and take to take the leap of faith or at least try something new. Independence is highlighted in your life- having the freedom to create, feel, move as you chose. Areas that hold you back for worse will soon crumble as Uranus brings fresh energy while Saturn retrograde breaks down the old spots of our life that don't serve us or have been holding us down.
Saturn works to break down and weaken areas that we do not want (whether we realize it or not!) in our lives forever. If you have been working hard this is the chance to slow down for a moment and let the universe carry the rest of the burden. When you see things begin to break down it is NOT because you haven't done enough already but because those areas are actually weak and no longer need your full commitment. Let this process of elimination happen so that you're not wasting your resources and energy!
On the 22nd, Pluto (the planet of death and transformation) will also turn retrograde. Pluto will also work to cleanse all weakness of sickness in your life. This is another chance to take your hands off and focus on your own healing- restorative practices and be open to transformation- what Pluto is known for!
To top it all off, it's important that I mention Venus opposing Jupiter on the 17th. This can make us feel lazy and want to take shortcuts. Don't overindulge or deviate from what you need to do to take care of yourself! Saturn retrograde simply won't allow it!
On the 20th the sun moves into Taurus to slow and steady or progress further. This transit is hardworking but also knows not to overdo it- something all of us can benefit from lately. Work hard, work your hours, but then at the end of the day kick your feet up and relax!
Finances can build, slowly and surely as well. Focus on building your savings and planning for future investing (just wait for Saturn to turn direct first before making huge payments!
Death and 6 of Swords- stay open and flexible to this cosmic release and stripping! It may not look like it now but there are better days just on the horizon that are a direct result of the fertile ground you are creating by letting the dead/old/weak go!
Astro + Tarot Details...
Week Ahead Chart
April 9th- 15th 2018
The last couple weeks have been tough for most people but especially last week as Sun (ruling our life energy) squared off in a tense angle with Mars and Saturn.
The Sun in Aries wants so badly to push forward and start new ventures and to heavily pursue its goals but Saturn (ruling restriction) we are forced to hold steady and to try our best to channel our energy constructively although it can feel impossible with the rain cosmic storm around us!
Mars is currently strong in Capricorn and was also squaring the Sun. Since Mars rules our drive and ambition it was super tough for us to sit back as it feels like so much of us wants to push forward when the universe is almost clearly saying, “No. Slow down”. This could easily create frustration, breakdowns, disconnections, and problems if we continued to push past the “Slow Down- Dangerous Curve Ahead” signs the universe has posted up for you to see! It was spelling trouble for relationships, stress levels, health, business, money, and travel… pretty much ALL areas of our lives!
Well, now this week the energy is beginning to not only lighten up but sweeten! You see when you follow the advice of your astrologer you know exactly when to act and how!
Venus is the planet that is the star of the show this week and she has much to give us! Venus in Taurus needs us to connect to our softer and more sensual sides… we have time now to stop and smell the roses, and we should! We can’t always be getting beat down by life lessons or leaping towards our goals. It's just as important to enjoy the simpler pleasures of life and to infuse that magick into our day to day lives!
Venus in Taurus is the bull in the flower pasture sniffing the plants and chewing on sweet grass in the sunlight! This is a reminder to focus on building security for yourself, open to financial reward, take care of your body- inside and out, and to make room for love and other universal gifts!
In fact, this is a STUNNING week for love! On the 11th Venus trines Mars and they are very flirty and sexy together! The day following that Venus blows kisses at Neptune and brings beauty and romance into your life! We will feel this aspect all week, pretty much and you can use it to manifest your dream income, important connections, or even love and romance! Mercury retrograde can still work his magick for you by bringing back connections of the past or even karmic ties… you’ll know if your heart what type of love you want to see unfold for you- in new or mature relationships! This works stunningly for those in partnerships and single!
Jupiter and Pluto also meet directly and perfectly and with Jupiter retrograde its just the right amount of gifts from the universe that feel good and not too overwhelming! Be open to receiving these positive vibes!
The only things I have to warn you about this week are the fact that Sun and Pluto will be squaring off. This can create tension between you and other ‘power players’- meaning maybe a boss, a significant other, family members, or even your own Self. Something or someone may be overstepping their boundaries or you may feel disrespected by their abrasiveness… you need to keep an eye out for those people who are pushing their weight on you or the times you feel like you are being controlled or taken advantage of. Also, be mindful of how YOU take care of YOU. You also need to be your own biggest advocate and not own worst enemy!
Lastly, Mercury goes direct at the end of this week on the 15th but before you rejoice, remember that Mercury retrograde typically has his biggest temper tantrum when he is stationing direct. Stay vigilant with all communication, signing contracts (if you must), travel, and losing items like keys and more!
THIS WEEK’S TAROT CARDS & MESSAGE
Emperor (RV), 8 of Swords, and The Devil (RV)
The Emperor Reversed concerns me because it feels like someone is pushing themselves into your space, disrespecting you, or overstepping their boundaries… especially as I look at the chart and see Sun squaring off with Pluto. We are being challenged by authority… and also being asked to step into our own personal power and assert ourselves. 8 of Swords looks terrifying but actually reminds you that the worst of it is actually in your head. No one can take your power away from you but YOU! The Devil Reversed backs this up further and says, ‘ cut off the chains that have been holding you back and down for too long. Woman, thou art loosed’! You have the chance to push back and be free. Remember what is truly important by revisiting the energy of Venus moving through Taurus, which is what we discussed up above!
Libra Full Moon & Building Tension...
Astro + Intuitive Forecast for week of March 26, 2018
This week the intensity is turned up a notch as the planets square off and create tension in the sky.
Sun (life energy) moves through Aries creating the need and desire to hit the ground running but in all honesty looking at the chart it looks like most will hit a brick wall or end up with more frustrations than anything.
Outside of the fact that mercury is retrograde forcing us to slow our pace down to a brisk walk and maybe even take steps backwards, the sun squares off with Saturn tying you back to your responsibilities and commitments. For some, this can exhaust and frustrate you because you truly are ready to move forward but Saturn requires you to address any underlying issues or problems. Also, simultaneously Mars (ruling our ambition) squares off with the Sun creating even more motivation and willpower to push forward however the frustration builds and becomes stronger when you are asked to slow down or retrace your steps.
Balance is KEY this week.
This may not be something you want to hear but sometimes it simply is not a good idea to race forward when the universe is sending you signals to slow down or to pay attention to other more important things that require your time and attention. If you are seeing “slow down” or even “stop” signs a lot this week honor them because they are there for a reason!
You will have time next week after this energy breaks but right now it is like fighting waves. Channel this energy in a way that is CONSTRUCTIVE… not destructive. I recommend writing petitions/setting intentions, deep cleaning or organizing, creating a plan of action, or even taking the tension out at the gym. Physical exercise is definitely encouraged, but be mindful that you are not overdoing it!
Also this week we have the Libra Full Moon. Libra naturally rules beauty, balance, and relationships but again with so many planets creating tension in the skies and the full moon bringing out suppressed or dormant emotions, it's quite possible you’ll experience some kind of emotional eruption connected to a lack of balance within yourself or important relationships around you.
All of this is 100% tied to karma- the lessons you are destined to learn in your life, and that makes you different from others. The natal nodes are being activated so what is destined to happen or reveal itself is there for a very special purpose.
Last week I saw a building struggle with self-love brewing and sometimes that gets triggered by our frustrations. We all have them but it is how we perceive our frustrations and act out on them that can make or break you. Some get frustrated in life and don’t realize that they beat their own selves up because outside circumstances aren’t working out. That does more harm than good. That energy started stirring this past weekend and spills over into this week. The Libra full moon will take time to highlight the places and spaces where this is true for you- and then you are free to work to balance them out and ease love and peace back into your life!
Also this week, Venus (the planet of love, beauty, and luxury) moves into Taurus- a very sensual and comfortable placement for her! This is another perfect time to bring in self-love rituals, abundance magick, and focusing surrounding yourself on the things that make you feel grounded, beautiful, and secure!
WEEKLY TAROT MESSAGE: 3 of Pentacles and 6 of Swords
Ask for help when needed. Sometimes we all need assistance with moving forward and someone is truly here to lend you a helping hand. Maybe be there for someone else and help them transition forward!
Jupiter Retrograde & Pisces New Moon
A magical explosion in the stars...
This week is ripe with important astro changes and the first one I must mention is the fact that last week on the 8th Jupiter (the planet of expansion and abundance) turned retrograde in the sign of Scorpio!
Jupiter retrograde has a cloud of confusion over it on the internet. People wonder if blessings, growth, and opportunity dry up and that is truly not the case.
Jupiter grows all that it touches- for good and bad- but when he is retrograde he needs a little extra time to build up to his full power!
I see him as a tropical storm building his energy over the warm waters of the ocean. He's not a full-on hurricane yet but he is powering up unleash his maximum potential for us later on!
Now, no planet is ALL good or ALL bad... even notorious Pluto and Saturn serve their magical purposes as well as Jupiter can just as easily be a thorn in your foot just as quickly as he can be the break you've been waiting your whole life for! It all depends on how well he is playing with the other planets in skies and also how he is influencing your personal natal chart!
Now, Jupiter in Scorpio has been highlighting a lot of trends that we are seeing in modern day media- most of which I have predicted a month before his arrival in the passionate sign. For starters, how we view sex, power, and intimacy were issues that were expanded and blown into our faces as we watched celebs being outted for some of their bad behaviors. Scorpio rules those issues 100%... as well as secrets. Jupiter ripped off the red curtain and the lights blared brightly for the whole world to see!
Now, in our day to day lives, I see spending beginning to trickle down a bit. Yes, a little less swiping of your credit cards, taking out loans, or draining your savings. Remember, Jupiter EXPANDS... and that includes how we spend our money. Sometimes we get reckless with our spending because Jupiter sometimes simply does not care. When retrograde we revisit those funds and begin to restrict ourselves, budget, or repay what we owe.
The next thing that I see is for others they are going to turn inward in their studies and pursuit of deeper understanding of themselves and even the spiritual world around them. They are seeking to quietly reflect- honoring the quiet pulls of their intuitive vs. trying to follow what magazines, the internet, and what others say we "should" or "shouldn't do to find the Divine around us and within ourselves!
Now, I can't ignore that Jupiter retrograde WILL quiet opportunity from flowing in... but this is because he wants you to focus on the growth of what he has ALREADY given you! You can't keep receiving and receiving without tending to the bounty currently at your fingertips. Are new things and opportunities exciting? Yes, of course. But what is already in front of you needs your attention so that THAT can grow... and the more you tend to it the more exciting THAT will get! Sometimes you can't see the blessing because you are so accustomed to looking at it!
Also, important this week is the new moon in stunning Pisces! Talk about magick! Pisces rules the energy of this moon and we are nudged again to pay attention to our intuition, hunches, and dreams.
Interestingly enough, Jupiter trines this new moon almost perfectly. Traditionally Jupiter rules Pisces and he lends his hand and protection to us for this moon! New Moons are highly reflective and quiet times... in fact, this moon is called the "dark moon" where the waters of our world are designed to be STILL. When the water is still we can see and within two days times begin to set our intentions and work magick for what we are ready to build as the moon then starts to grow.
Pisces is highly SPIRITUAL, compassionate, artistic, and loving. Still waters run deep with this sign and I see many taking the time to sit with legs crossed in meditation to connect with the magick within themselves being stirred so that they can see clearly the answers that they seek, what steps next to take and to take account of their personal vibes.
There is a need to be alone within your own sacred space, to connect with the breath again, and feel the energy of the Divine, spirit, and your guides. They have many messages they've been needing to share and the only way to connect and hear them is to be STILL.
Venus (love, beauty, values) is still dancing in circles with Mercury (communication, mind) and the two meet with the natal node nudging your steps back in authentic alignment with YOUR personal path.
Ask yourself, "Where do I need to be now? This is what I want my life to look and feel like... how do I get back there?"
Mercury rules the mind and will give your sparkling glimpses and visions... Venus rules what we love and will paint a picture by stirring your heart. All courtesy of this new moon!
Mars (action) is roughhousing with Uranus and inspires our action, stirs us to action! We've been moving quickly these last few weeks... a lot of times impulsively but all for a divine purpose. Where has life been trying to take you? Keep making note of your impulses as they are also very destined.
Have a magickal week, everyone!"
We are officially in Pisces season! On the 18th the sun- which rules our life energy- moved into the sign of Pisces. During this time we can feel our energy shift even further as sensitivities increase, the need for a creative or emotional outlet is intensified, and our thoughts and minds drift on a cloud…
Under this influence, people tend to be far more compassionate and sensitive to others. More people are apt to use or abuse substances during this time as a way to escape the harsh realities of life- Pisces energy can be so sensitive to the ways of the world and find it difficult to fit in with its idealistic dream and visions.
On the flip side (and more importantly), Pisces energy tends to bring out the BEST in others. We are far more compassionate to the needs of others. We are more likely to help each other, want to connect with each other- this is something the world needs now more than ever!
Pisces is sometimes painted in such bad light. The internet loves attacking the sweetness of Pisces and is quick to call the energy bad or negative when in reality without this charming sign the world would just be TOO harsh, too heartless, too ‘real’. Without the energy of Pisces, soulmates and true love wouldn’t be able to exist. With Pisces the painter would never feel the urge to paint or create, the lover would be too afraid or jaded to love!
This week as Sun, Venus, and Mercury move through Pisces we are urged to allow those sides of ourselves to be released so that they too can play! Pisces stirs the emotional wooded space at times but through that wound is deep healing and through healing is understanding and then enlightenment- all things that Pisces rules!
In fact, on the 21st Venus and Neptune meet within the sign of Pisces and this energy oozes out further! Venus dances in Pisces and is her best Self! When she meets with Neptune the potential for soulmates, twin flames, and blissful divine love is heightened and magnified! Truly a magical day!
Also, Mercury is supported by Saturn this day! Mercury rules communication and within Pisces we are more apt to speak in poetry that flows from the heart and feelings! Wow, what a way for beautiful communication and to make promises of the heart as Saturn helps to hold those promises true!
At the very end of the week, Venus (planet of love and relationships!) squares off with Mars creating incredibly sexy tension that is impossible to ignore! The two planets simply cannot resist each other and slam together with explosive fireworks!
This week is one that romance novels are written about!
TAROT/INTUITIVE MESSAGE: WORLD, TOWER, LOVERS
Can it get any hotter with these cards connecting during this week?!
The World is the final showdown as all things that have been building finally come to a completion while Tower and Lovers create a surprise union!

LONGTERM INVESTMENTS, CAREER, AND GROWTH!
6 out of the 10 planets have crowded themselves in the sign of earth Capricorn this week forcing our attention into BUILDING! Capricorn naturally rules the 10th house of career so as a collective we find ourselves being drawn to our longterm plans for the future, our status in the world, reputation! Capricorn is the sign of longterm hard work that pays off in long-lasting reward… if you are willing to invest yourself!
NEW MOON SHOOTS THE ARROW!
This week on Tuesday we have a new moon in the sign of Capricorn which lights up this energy completely! We are asked by the universe to connect with the energy of our commitments- what are we willing to commit to dedicate our energy to in order to see growth- maybe not always right away but is still something of value and importance!
Health should be top priority as Capricorn is ruled by Saturn and Saturn works to wear things out over time. If you are taking care of your body, mind, and spirit you are usually rewarded with a happy long life! If you wear yourself down with stress and unhealthy behaviors complications arrive… a direct result of things built up over time!
Meaningful relationships are highlighted this week and connections that are beneficial for the long haul can reveal or cement themselves now! This is an excellent time for taking relationships of all kinds to the next steps!
THE ELEMENT OF SURPRISE
The element of surprise is also incredibly high this week as Uranus the planet of unexpected developments is leaving hidden gifts for some of us to stumble upon this week! Uranus and Venus together can create fun adventures or unexpected twists in development… especially in regard to relationships and finances so its best for all of us to keep our eyes open to what the universe has in store!
THINGS GET ODD...
Venus and Sun are moving into the sign of Aquarius this week and Aquarius is also ruled by the energy of Uranus! This is about exploring different areas of expression and interests- be pen to step OUTSIDE of the box for quick and innovative ideas!
For many of you, it feels like you might be ‘stuck in a rut’ lately as it seems like somethings aren’t truly changing… so It's a good idea to switch things up, try a new class or solution, or go somewhere you’ve never been before! You’d be surprised how refreshing small changes (like an exciting haircut or trying new food!) can make life so much more fun and interesting!
TAROT PULL + INTUITIVE MESSAGE- 10 of Pentacles, 4 of Pentacles, Knight of Cups
10 & 4 of Pentacles are super steady and grounded… meanwhile, the Knight of Cups is flowing in with messages and invitations! I feel the message of, “You don’t have to try so hard. Let them come to you! If you have done the work and made all the moves you possibly can then now it is time to sit still and wait for them to choose and invest in YOU! You are worthy and what you have is valuable!”
I love this message for this week as we work with the earthiness of Capricorn and the sweetness of the heart!
Let me know how this is manifesting itself for you in the comment section!
This week is a game changer and perfect for action-packed moves! This is because the key power players in making an impactful change in your life- Mercury, Mars, and Sun- are immediately aspecting planets that give them the boost of extra motivation- Pluto and Jupiter!
SWEETEST COSMIC VIBES + DOOR OPENER!
Monday we start with sweet cosmic vibes as Sun (life energy) and Venus meet together and spark with creativity, love, and beauty! Sparks truly do fly especially as the two together meet and party with Jupiter (planet of abundance!)! This is an amazing day for networking, meeting with friends, going on a date, or partying! Also, Mars (action) and Pluto (transformation) greet each other and give power, strength, and ambition! This creates a golden opportunity for most to capitalize on to unlock and open stubborn doors in our lives! If there is something you have been trying to accomplish but have had no luck today is an awesome day to try again and see what happens! Mars and Pluto together make you incredibly persuasive and Moon in Libra softens hearts- people naturally want to partner and work out agreements!
These aspects will work for you on your behalf most of this week- capitalize and channel this energy!
SURGE IN PERSONAL POWER!
Tuesday Sun and Venus both sit with Pluto creating the potential for an intense surge in personal transformation and power. The sun rules our life energy and when he meets with Pluto like this most feel a surge or push towards their own personal power! The ability to persuade and convince others is high and also making moves on your end to better yourself and make impactful changes in your life!
Venus and Pluto together bring intensity and passion to love relationships and there is a need to connect with others on a deeper level! This is another awesome day to be setting intentions for love, money, and lifestyle changes!
MERCURY MOVES INTO CAPRICORN- THE MIND IS FOCUSED AND SERIOUS!
Finally, Mercury moves into Capricorn on the 10th! Mercury rules our communication and mind and our thinking becomes far more serious, focused, and wants to build up and out! The next few weeks focus on cementing plans for your future, doing the work to see them come to life and stir to fruition!
HEAVY DAY TO LOOK OUT FOR...
A day to watch out for is the 13th- a Saturday. This day Mercury and Saturn meet and the double heaviness of Saturn energy (Saturn rules Capricorn) can feel very very heavy! I also feel this day there might be a communication breakdown where a misunderstanding or something someone says creates frustration and exhaustion... like someone saying, "I can't win with you! I give up"! If this is truly the case for you- give space to think and review. Don't force issues unless you completely have to.
Also on this day, Venus squares with Uranus creating immediate and sometimes drastic changes in partnerships. Hopefully, this isn't because of the double influence of Saturn I just mentioned but if it is- trust in the what the Universe is trying to show you and follow its flow!
Tarot Pull + Intuitive Message: Knight of Wands & Page of Pentacles
Energy is obviously very high with Knight of Wands' surge of excitement and activity! Page of Pentacles works to ground and center that energy so you have a strong foundation to build upon! Job offers & money can fly in and out- even unexpectedly! Stay open! This week should be filled with surprise!"
SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON- 18TH
We are starting this week on a high note with the new moon in Sagittarius! This new moon infuses the energy of ‘blind faith’ into your life! It's about following your feeling- your gut instinct- that is working in overdrive to guide you through the life of your dreams- one that is far from being mediocre or meaningless!
Jupiter RULES the energy of this moon (Jupiter rules Sagittarius) and has been sitting in the sign of Scorpio kicking up all of our deepest and darkest desires and putting them on BLAST!
Who you are to your core is being exposed as well as the quality of your relationships and things that you surrounding you- good or bad!
Jupiter squares off with the natal node- forcing what is fated to occur in your life. You MUST remain open… you can’t fight what is designed to happen, especially if it is happening to guide and protect you! Sagittarius reminds us that we can’t SEE the bigger picture ALL the time… but we have to have BLIND FAITH and TRUST!
It's about ACTION… not overthinking! Overthinking KILLS more dreams than FAILURE does!
The moon’s move the next few days is HIGHLY emotional!
She meets with Saturn and feels emotionally bombarded- she is raw, triggered, and moody.
This is a GOOD thing because it EXPOSES what makes us uncomfortable, bored, or sad and reminds you that YOU have the power to CHANGE it- set your ATTENTION on it and set the INTENTION to change it!
SATURN MOVES INTO CAPRICORN- 20TH
Another huge move this week is Saturn moving into the sign of Capricorn, the sign that it rules! Saturn tests and will retest your commitment, your work ethic, your ability to put in hard work to strive for your own personal greatness! Saturn’s journey will be long and hard but in the end it will be worth it! You’ll want to check to see what house Saturn will be moving through your chart to see what area of your life will be completely tested. Globally, we will see the breakdown of rigid business systems and even governments can come crumbling down in order to make room for better systems to be put into place. Leaders will be severely tested, stress will be high but again- it will all be worth it to have a structure put in place that stronger and (hopefully!) better serving of the people!
A TOUGH DAY FOR ALL- SUN CONJUNCT SATURN- 21ST
Sun infuses us with life energy and Saturn is the planet of confinement and restriction. When the two meet on this day the energy can be draining and defeating. This is not a good day to push yourself to the limit, to push your body to its breaking point, or to add pressure on relationships. The weak spots will not only crack but collapse with full force! This is a day for restorative activities, to plan for your future (especially budgeting and creating rules for yourself to follow to keep you on track)!

Mercury retrograde is in FULL swing and returning BACK to the place that it once was not even a week ago! Prepare to REVIST last week's developments, conversations, and opportunities... especially as Mercury meets with Saturn once again!Read More
Mercury retrograde, Venus moves into Sagittarius, Mrs and Uranus square off creating cosmic tension in the skies! This week is FILLED with exciting developments that we will need to be aware of! Let's dive in…
TIME TO GET SERIOUS- Mercury Connects with Saturn!
This week on the 28th Mercury ( the planet that rules communication, travel, and thinking) meets with Saturn- the planet of restriction. This sobers the energy of your thinking, especially when it comes to cementing long-term plans and goals! Saturn wants you to be SERIOUS about what you realized about yourself and what you are opening your energy up towards so he nudges you to build and place the foundation for those dreams and visions to become a reality! This is the time to start doing research for travel plans, for placing the deposit for your higher education, or to even establish a routine for your spiritual growth and regimen!
You will be able to work with the days surrounding this time to cement those plans as Mercury will be lingering around the energy of Saturn for a little while longer. If you are hesitant or unsure yet- don’t worry! Mercury will be flipping into retrograde motion allowing you to return back to your original plans and make any adjustments if needed!
You have to remember, not everything needs to be perfect! So, if you’re nervous about making a mistake throw that notion out of the door! The planets are working WITH YOU to guide and protect you and Mercury retrograde is the hidden blessing that will work in your favor!
EXPLORE, DISCOVER, INVITE IN ADVENTURE- Venus moves into Sagittarius!
In other news, on December 1st, Venus- the planet of beauty, love, and relationships- moves into the sign of Sagittarius! This switch is delightfully refreshing as partnerships and values shift from intensely and deeply passionate exploring to playful, fun, and exploring! Venus was moving through the sign of Scorpio causing us to narrow our focus to one partner or ‘the one”, with an emphasis on soulmate connection and deepening understanding! Now with her move into Sagittarius our energy shifts and we are ready to go out and explore- together with our partners or on our ways- to discover what is out there for us to love and value! Keep your mind open to trying new adventures and things, allow yourself to venture into places you would never have thought to go to! Venus in Sagittarius loves this and encourages us to explore in this way! This applies to shopping as well, as Venus rules values and things! Allow yourself to drift allows you to stumble on some incredible one of a kind treasures!
TENSION RISES- A WARNING- Mars Squares with Uranus
Also, on this day Mars squares off with Uranus which can be a problem! Mars rules our drive, passion, and aggression while Uranus rules surprise. When the two square off in this manner it can be explosive, especially if there is underlying tension or frustration! I’ve been warning of this aspect for over a week now and want everyone to steer clear of reckless or impulsive behavior, high-risk activities, or fighting… it quickly turns sour and without any warning!
REVISIT AND REVAMP- Mercury turns Retorgrade!
Finally, on December 3rd Mercury will turn retrograde in the sign of Sagittarius bringing old conversations and people back into our lives. Relationships that are in need of repair or attention will be highlighted for us and it is up to you to decide if what shows up during this time is worthy of your time, attention, and energy! If it is— take the time out to look at what needs fixing and adjusting and give it your all, being patient during every step of the process! If it isn’t than don’t waste your efforts on something you aren’t invested in- Mercury in Sagittarius wants you to keep your perspective wide open!
FUll MOON IN GEMINI!
And finally, we end this week with an incredible full moon in the sign of sociable Gemini! With so many planets crowded planets crowded in the signs that encourage your exploration and open mind this full moon will highlight this energy even further! Words and thoughts have incredible power for this full moon and written intentions and spoken words will hold incredible magick! Keep your eyes open for important text messages, phone calls, and conversations that will bring important news and information to you during this time!
This week is working like a huge cosmic purging- a twisting and a turning! For starters, last week we had the glorious full moon in Taurus that lit up the sky beautifully encouraging each of us to focus on QUALITY over QUANTITY in all areas of our lives- relationships, work, lifestyle, etc.!
Taurus is ruled by the sign of Venus so it delights in the pleasure of the senses but it is also co-ruled by the element of earth, simplifying but increasing the quality of your blessings and abundance! Full moons work to purge, release, and bring things to fruition while are typically supremely raw emotional times for magick and reflection! Meanwhile, the sun is still completing the transit through the sign of Scorpio which again works to purge and release anything that ultimately doesn't serve us authentically or enrich us. Relationships dive into emotional and mental intimacy and connection, which may be tough to deal with if you're not ready or open to it but the planets are moving in ways to give your life purpose and meaning... that is something that can NOT come out of shallow relationships or lifestyles!
THINK BIG! Mercury moves into Sagittarius!
This week Mercury moves into the sign of Sagittarius, officially on the 5th! Mercury rules the mind, communication, and thoughts and now we are beginning to lift our eyes to see the BIGGER picture... We are wondering, 'Now that *this* has happened, now that I know- what do I want to do now? What do I want to do next?"
Asking yourself these questions now helps you to shift into planning and envisioning the future... especially if you've been spending the last month and some change reevaluating and transitioning!
RELATIONSHIP/MONEY SHIFTS- Venus into Scorpio
We haven't escaped the grasp of Scorpio yet as Venus (ruling relationships) moves into the sign of Scorpio this week. Again, this is another level of evaluation, purge, release, rebuild for love, personal power, and money! You may even feel the need to venture to the "dark side" with your appearance by wearing darker colors, dying hair dark, etc.!
COSMIC BEAUTY- VENUS & JUPITER MEET!
The 9th is another awesome day for finances and personal power as sun sextiles Pluto- the planet of transition and power! Focus on money & resources, depth in relationships, healing of the self! And lastly, this week ends with a cosmic golden aspect as Venus and Jupiter meet beautifully giving blessings, beauty, and bounty to you depending on what Scorpio rules within your chart!
TAROT/INTUITIVE MESSAGE- REEVALUATE!
This week's Tarot card pull is 2 of cups, 2 of wands, and knight of Swords. The need for balance and reciprocity in partnerships of all kinds is key this week!
Knight of Swords & 2 of Wands together predicts a rocky road for relationships (2 of Cups) especially as Venus opposes Uranus this week!
2 of Wands has MUCH energy, passion, plans,& a heart of gold!
He is planning to build a huge empire- his largest goal! He needs/wants people & things around him that will help to BUILD & support his energy… not steal, lie, exhaust him.
2 of Cups msg says VALUE the partnerships that are mutually giving- in fact, this card’s keyword is RECIPROCITY.
Partnerships need to be BALANCED (notice the symbolism of the number 2… one on each side, perfect balance!) & NOT a one-way street!
When the balance is OFF for too long, its no longer a partnership.
2 of Wands steps back & finally SEES the bigger picture while Knight of Swords is the gust of wind to deliver the final fatal message/ news!
It’s interesting that the energy& word of RELEASING is coming up, especially on the tail end of this Taurus full moon that brings much to surface, including endings & requires you to focus on QUALITY over QUANTITY.
Who or what have you held close to your side& are they equally there for YOU?
Or are they benefiting from the light& resource that you give…?
I have this mantra for us all:
I RELEASE AND FORGIVE.
I EXPRESS THE THINGS THAT HAVE HURT ME AND MY WORDS ALLOW ME TO RELEASE ANY HEAVY CRYSTALLIZATION WITHIN ME.
I release WITHOUT expectation but what needs to be said MUST be said…
I don’t have to be everything to everyone, but I DO need to be there for mySELF.
I disconnect& remove any& all negative influence & surround mySeLF back with a protective bubble to guard my Sacred space & energy.
This allows me the space to be free to flow effortlessly.
I move back into creativity, creation, now that I have released with LOVE & continue to move forward with light& love surrounding me!
Remember QUALITY > QUANTITY!"
Best Week Ever?!
Astro/Tarot Forecast for 10/23- 10/29th!
LUCKIEST WEEK OF THE YEAR?!
Last week we had the Libra New Moon that was tensely aligned stressing partnership & balance. This new moon needed to be quiet and reflective with Uranus opposing the moon and sun setting emotions and actions to be somewhat unstable and the potential for people to lash out was strong- chances are you felt this in yourself or noticed it in others! Its awesome for setting intentions (what new or full moon isn't?!) but as far as the day and weekend being smooth sailing...? No, far from it!
This week we're stepping out of that space and things begin to calm down as the planets shift.
ENERGY EASES UP AFTER TRICKY NEW MOON!
Mars is moving out of the tense alignment with Saturn and now moving into the sign of fun and beauty-loving Libra! We can't take ourselves too seriously during the next week. Life in some ways may at times be heavy with responsibilities and commitments but apart of us is ready to put our feet up, socialize, sleep, shop, have some fun! This is all about BALANCE-yes, last week's major theme!
Mars rules the energy of how we achieve and accomplish tasks. Mars moving through Libra is indecisive, checking in with others, and once it makes its mind up uses wit and charm to get what it wants... then changes its mind again! Mercury in Scorpio is still seeking to understand what it TRULY wants... there are simply too many options- too many things to consider!
CREATIVE JUICES FLOW!
On the 24th our minds take a breather to let some sunshine in! Do yourself a favor and go for a break or walk in the sun to let yourself relax and let creative juices flow! The less pressure you put on yourself the more ideas will flow- today is the perfect day for this!
THINGS GET SPOOOOKY... IN A GOOD WAY!
Sun enters into the sign of Scorpio and naturally, we are drawn to the darker side of things- of course, because this is the vibe of Scorpio! Skeletons, scary movies, death and transition... its like we're taking off a fur coat to put on a black leather one or even a witch's cape! Allow yourself to indulge in Halloween activities, interests, events!
BEST DAY OF THE YEAR!
The 26th is a brightly lit day when Sun and Jupiter meet! Sun is our life energy and Jupiter is expansion- together they bring luck to each and all! Today would be an awesome day to initiate a new project, give a speech, start a business that is connected to your passion, or even go on a date! Mark this date in your calendar!
TAROT CARDS FOR THIS WEEK: 2 of Wands and 2 of Wands!
Yup, a double whammy of 2 of wands energy! You can't help but weight all of the pros and cons during decision making! Look at ALL the options and connect with what makes the most sense- and feels right, even if scary!- to you! You can't go wrong!
