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! Choices of the heart and intuition are important- and you can make no mistake… unless you are choosing logic and fear over all else! Lovers remind you of the importance of following what you love while the World card claps its hands that you have made the decision to move forward and prioritize your happiness! This is key! This week is the week of the GAME CHANGER!!
Valentine's day week, solar eclipses, and romantic energy! Get this week's forecast and stay informed!Read More
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)!
TAROT MESSAGE: Knight of Wands, 5 of Wands!
The first thing I think with this is, “SLAY YO’ COMPETITION!” Do it for YOU! Knight of Wands is filled with natural energy- energy that comes from passion and love! 5 of Wands shows me that there may be some odds stacked against you but its nothing that you can’t handle! Stay focused and motivated, make a PLAN, set INTENTION!
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!
TENSE ALIGNMENTS- GIVE OR TAKE
This week is tense but if you play your cards right you can absolutely assist the cosmos in working for you and not against you, however, flexibility is a must!
For starters, looking at the astro chart for this week I can quickly see a tense alignment between most of the personal planets.
Sun opposes Uranus creates an impulsive and easily irritated energy that is hard to ignore! It seems as though either you or those around you may have a short fuse that you may feel under the surface all week!
Moon opposing Neptune at the start of the week has most feeling highly sensitive to vibrations in your environment! You can pick up on even the tiniest changes!
Mentally we are drifting and daydreaming as Mercury opposes Neptune. At best our imagination is strong but when making logically sound decisions we struggle, especially as the other planets are competing with each other and peer pressuring us to make impulsive decisions over temporary feelings!
Sun opposing Pluto makes you want to break totally away from the norm… or anything that you feel is restricting you and your flow while Mars squaring Pluto flares tempers and makes you want to push even harder against the obstacle…which can not only be exhausting but su[er frustrating as your noticing the more you tend to push the more you are met with resistance!
It's hard to hold back with transits like this and it's up to you to decide what is worth fighting for and where you would do better to hang up your hat or try a totally different path to get to what you want!
WORK FOR BALANCE- NEW MOON IN LIBRA- OCT 19TH
On the 19th the skies are lit up with the New Moon in Libra… the sign that rules balance, partnership, beauty & glamour!
Even though the surrounding planets are creating tense and sensitive aspects this could be just the push we need to start fresh in welcoming and working more balance into our lives!
For example, maybe you are so caught in trying to make others happy that you are neglecting yourself… this new moon reminds you to make that change because to give too much for too long exhausts you and takes away from your energy!
Reflect on your relationships- are they balanced or equal? Or do they need some tweaking so both partners are fulfilled? If single, the energy of your independence is highlighted! Begin planning for how you wish to share (or not!) yourself with others!
TAROT MESSAGE- 8 of Wands, Knight of Pentacles, and The Moon
8 of Wands speeds around the Knight of Pent and his horse like a gust of wind...
The horse is spooked but the knight reminds grounded, in control, centered.
His steely eyes are focused and if his heart was beating fast out of fear or excitement you couldn’t tell for each of his moves, his words are deliberate and well thought out, expressed with perfect timing!
CHANNEL the energy of the knight this week!
It’s easy to lose yourself in the swirling confusion/activity around you- but stay FOCUSED. Stay GROUNDED.
One thing at a time- not everything ALL at once!
Moon’s appearance shows the heightened sensitivity of our feelings- all may not be all that it seems and you’ll do best to take it slow and not force anything to be! Remember, the planets move with perfect timing and will trigger where your attention and focus needs to be next. If something feels off give it your love and energy to help make it right again!
We start this week with the moon in the fidgety sign of Gemini! We can't help but wiggle in our seats as our minds and energy picks up speed and begins to race! To top this off, Mercury (ruling Gemini) conjoins perfectly with the sun emphasizing the brilliance of the mind, thinking, and thought! This week channel this energy to build connections and communication with others, sharing ideas, and brainstorming- you won't regret it! This also an excellent aspect for writers & bloggers, those who problem solve, and those studying or taking tests! The cosmos are shining their light on you!
JUPITER MOVES INTO SCORPIO- OCT 10th
A huge astro event happening this week is Jupiter's move from Scorpio into Libra! Jupiter rules expansion, abundance, and fun while Scorpio energy is exactly the opposite! It is an intense and private sign and highlights the importance and magnitude of deeply intimate relationships of all kinds- romantic, platonic, business partnerships, etc.! For most, Jupiter will lighten the energy as we explore ourselves and others which is lucky because to move through this transit with any of the other outer planets can feel doubly intense and emotionally draining to deal with for extended periods of time. Scorpio rules sex and intimacy but also our reproductive health- the focus shifts to this from now until the following few months during this transit! Don't be surprised if during this time our society shifts to some sort of sexual reawakening or reevaluation- you heard this prediction here first!
When Jupiter was in Libra the focus was on relationships but now in Scorpio, we really start thinking about intimacy- the deep and private sharing of our true selves with others. Anyone can have a relationship... but trust found and built through intimacy is something that is rare and a treasure. Let's not mistake sex for intimacy (although Scorpio does rule sex) because although the two go hand in hand you can't fake intimacy or force it by simply having sex alone. Intimacy is developing by finding soulmate relationships (friendships, etc!) and sharing your raw self with another! This vibration builds starting now and asks you to watch and work to increase the energy of relationships in your own personal life!

MARS SQUARES SATURN- OCT 11th- STEER CLEAR!
Also, this week Mars (the warrior planet!) squares off with Saturn (planet of restriction) creating a tense and potentially violent atmosphere! On this day and the days surrounding patience is dangerously thin and some of us may find it difficult to hold ourselves back from reacting if something sets us off or feels like its holding you back! This is not the time to start or provoke fights because it can escalate far faster than you or anyone else would have imagined! It is best to lay low and remove yourself from situations that you don't see ending positively!
VENUS MOVES INTO LIBRA- OCT 14th- HELLO, BEAUTIFUL!
Venus rules beauty, love, and glamour and moves into the sign that she loves the most- Libra! The planets are not afraid to play favorites and when Venus moves into her home sign she feels comfortable to express herself in the way that only she can! For us this gives us the chance to beautify ourselves and the things that we love- our homes, others, our pets, etc.! We are tempted to shop and treat ourselves... and by all means, enjoy! Surrounding yourself with things that are beautiful reduces our stress so stop and give yourself flowers, window shop, focus on self-care, and spend time with friends or taking the person you love on a romantic date!
