The full moon for SOUL MATES, SPIRITUALITY, LOVE, and HURRICANES...?!Read More
Filtering by Category: ASTRO UPDATES
Hello again, Astro & Tarot lover!
You must have noticed the surging energy of the planets currently crowded within the sign of fiery Aries, especially with the passing of this week's new moon in Aries!
Aries is the match that is struck to create an incredible spark of light and heat, revving our engines, and pushing us to make bold moves forward!
Half of you may feel the effect of Aries energy with the floodgates of ideas and momentum while the other half of you may feel agitated or on edge... and this energy can be felt in very specific areas of your life(depending on the placement of your personal planets) but I can definitely see it manifesting in relationships of ALL kinds with Venus (the natural ruler of relationships) moving retrograde through the sign of Aries where is she is feeling weak and agitated.
Also, Aries energy is very self focused- so you may have experienced people or partners be hyper focused on themselves and what they want, without factoring feelings or other people into the occasion. You may find yourself or others stepping all over toes and not even noticing!
On top of that, this week Mercury has buzzing like an angry wasp around Uranus (the planet of disruption) and squaring Pluto (the planet of transformation) causing our minds to erupt with activity, agitation, and maybe even feeling competitive- pushing against rules and needing to rebel! All of this is again, happening within the sign of Aries, fanning the flames even further!
Something I want to bring to your attention is the fact that Mercury will soon be joining Venus in retrograde- both planets will be reversed in their orbit, kicking up dirt and chaos that needs to resurface in our lives... remember, everything happens for a reason!
This week and the middle of the next we'll be the shadow period of Mercury's retrograde cycle so prepare for this by labeling your belongings, planning for tune ups of cars and bikes, watching the messages and emails that you send, and clarifying that you understand someone's point before jumping to conclusions!
I still see relationships being tested this month but its nothing we can't handle... if we're prepared!
This Week's Tarot Cards:
Ace of Wands, Knight of Pentacles
* Bonus: 7 of Wands Reversed!
Whew! Ace of Wands is the spark of passion, activity- something you have definitely been seeing and feeling last week and this week! However, Knight of Pentacles wants you to funnel that energy constructively to build rather than impulsively go pursue what you're after and then later burning out. 7 of Wands warns that the obstacles that you've been staring face to face will begin to back down... but one wrong move (rushing forward too soon & too fast, thoughtfulness, and recklessness, etc.) could come back to take you down. Slow your steps and channel the fire you are feeling wisely!
Last week's full moon in Virgo asked us to ground, center, and worked materialize our vision and intention- this week we feel the push and jump start to get even more motivated and aggressive with our heart's desires!
This is because most of the personal planets (Sun, Venus, Mercury) are moving through the self starting and bold sing of Aries, revving our engines and hitting the gas to move forward!
The last few months have been tough, reflective, and transformative but with the planets aligned like this the race flag swings down and you're ready to GO!
Venus (ruling beauty, aesthetic, the things we value, and love relationships by default) currently retrograding through Aries is not the most comfortable she's ever been and while retrograde her powers are not nearly as strong as they would be if she was direct so during this time her only warning is be careful of huge expensive purchases that you want to love and last for a life time and to tread carefully while walking in relationships- you may need to repair or reevaluate some relationships now more than ever! If this shows up for you- know that this is the universe preparing you to let go of some loose ends in your life and all of this happens for a reason!
Saturn (the planet of restriction) and the Sun (life energy and vibrancy) are moving into - and then away from- a tense square together... this means the energies of this two planets are NOT flowing easily together, in fact they are fighting! With this, I warn that even though MENTALLY you are feeling strong and energized or high energy your physical body may still need rest or recovery... don't push yourself too hard or for too long- you can easily make yourself sick or get hurt in the process! Also, watch for "battle of the wills" where you may find yourself or others in conflict or disagreement!
Tarot Energy: Knight of Wands, Magician, Page of Pentacles
I'm not at all surprised to see the Knight of Wands representing the energy of this week! With the planets crowding into the sign of Aries and Knight of Wands being ruled by fire our energy is exploding and we are off to the races! Magician reminds you that you are capable, ready, and empowered while the Page of Pentacles knows that if you channel that passion into daily intention you will see the most gain and progress!
Solar Eclipses, Venus Retrograde- Oh My!
This week we're riding the wave of the passing Solar Eclipse (a super powered new moon!) that happened within the sign of Pisces! New Moons are all about planting seeds of intentions, doors opening and opportunities flowing in, and powerful visualization! In the sign of Pisces our energy shifts to a totally new vibration- one where the universe encourages us to believe and look for the unseen, to reconnect and dive into our spiritual practice, to pursue our highest dreams and idealizations!
Many of you will be feeling dreamy or foggy with trouble concentrating and focusing... our minds and thoughts feel like they're floating on a cloud or perhaps we're lost in the sea of our feelings, intuition, and emotions!
Others will feel this and will experience surges of intuition, higher levels of creativity, and deeper moments of intimacy and connection!
What to see what doors are beginning to swing open for you while keeping in mind you still want to keep your feet on the ground while your head is floating in the clouds! Be realistic but remain open to experiencing magic manifesting in your life!
The other major change happening for us in the next few days is on Saturday Venus goes retrograde! Venus naturally rules beauty, valuables, and relationships and when she switches to retrograde we will experience some complications in those areas of our lives. Relationships of all kinds can be tested, minds and hearts can change. We loose or break valuable items, or we completely revaluate our "look" or appearance.
Things to Be Aware Of:
- Exes, past relationship issues begin to resurface during this time. Tread slowly and carefully if you are considering recommitting or talking to relationships of the past!
- Don't make drastic appearance changes! 9 times out of 1o you'll regret it or not like it at all!
- Don't leave your wallet, purse, or other expensive and valuable items sitting out unattended or at risk of being stolen!
- Ride the wave of what surfaces in relationships during the Venus Retrograde period! Retrogrades highlight things that need to addressed or changed- this is an opportunity for growth!
Venus will be retrograde from March 6-April 15th and it can be just as magical as it could be difficult! Keep your heart open and stay focused and you'll do just fine ;)
Tarot Combination: Empress and High Priestess
This week's card energy is represented by the Empress and High Priestess! With this combination and the current swirling cosmic energy I see this as self care, intuition, and the energy of receiving! We've gotten so used feeling like we have to aggressively seek and then find the key to open the door to whatever it is that we are working to manifest, or heal, or recover! However, the High Priestess has a quiet and strong presence to her as she is the keeper of secret knowledge and intuition while the Empress is the embodiment of a natural energy flowing. When you sit still in meditation or prayer and take a pause you naturally open the portal for intuition to begin to stir and spin to life. Your direction and next steps become clear, manifestation is effortless and easy, and healing can occur. Move back in that space of connection and you'll see incredible moments of awareness & transformation!
FEAR | CONFINEMENT | LOSS | REFLECTION
Lets talk 12th house transits, tribe- the most notoriously feared spot within the astro/natal chart!
12th House Rules:
- Psychotherapy & Psychics
- Inner Suffering, Loss, Limitations
- Spirituality & Intuition
💀🖤 Through out all of these- to their core- you WILL find healing.
Transiting or natally placed planets need special care & attention which will provide for you an extra dose of growth, transformation, self awareness, & enhance your 3rd eye vision/intuition/hunches.
❤💕I’m working on one of my recent client’s chart & she’s coming out of a period where 12th house energy was extra emphasized within her chart for at least the last 3-4 weeks...
What did she experience? Breakdowns, a melt down, the need for space & privacy, sensitivity... not surprised. Charts show me all ❤
For people who are normally extroverted or high functioning in their day to day life a 12th house transit can feel like it totally derails them!
Fear, insecurity, feeling triggered by deep lying wounds, a desire and a need to be alone (worrying some, “Am I isolating myself?! What’s WRONG with me?! Am I depressed?!”), are highlighted.
The WORST thing you can do during this time is to try & FORCE yourself to perform at your usual productive or energetic high.
12th house energy is HIGHLY sensitive, vulnerable, probing, reflective… the reason of its existence is to create the layer of depth that we need in our lives to experience & discover incredible truths about ourselves, to heal ourselves and give that gift to others, to understand the core & very essence of existence, to SEE past human limitations....
Is it something to fear?
Hell no! But it IS something to respect…
12TH HOUSE SURVIVAL GUIDE:
- Pause, heal, reflect
- OPEN up to diving into understanding your wounded spaces
- Help others
- Take time for yourself
- Lean on your belief/spiritual practice!
- Don't share ALL (this house rules secrets and hidden enemies)
There is nothing to fear when there is SO much to be gained behind the dark veil of this house...
Love you all!
Astro Forecast covering Jan 26- Feb 2, 2017- Breaking Free, Energy Returns, Engines Rev!
Last week a lot of us found our energy dipping! For some of you this because you were seriously focusing on work, your tasks, & commitments while for others your mind and mood slowed down almost to halt and you needed time to withdraw or maybe you even mentally or emotionally felt spacey or even sober- minded!
This week ahead, however, the energy totally shifts with the new moon in Aquarius occurring on January 27 at 7:07pm and with the planets making their way into refreshingly new placements!
Let's start with this Aquarius New Moon!
New Moons (as most of you know!) are all about planting the seeds of intentions, starting something new, and watching for what doors the universe is swinging open for you! In this case, this new moon is occurring in the sign of Aquarius- a sign that brings the energy of breaking free, paving your own path and going your own way, innovation, and expression!
Mercury (ruling our thinking & processing) moves through serious & sober minded Capricorn- which was a part of the reason the energy was a bit heavier last week- and now it boxes with Uranus, a planet that wants to shake things up and also rules the sign of Aquarius... where this new moon is occurring!
This shows me that this week we are feeling the itch to switch things up! Many of you will be breaking away from old outdated ways of perception, ideas, and habits! The rest of you will hear news (Mercury acts as messenger to all of the planets!) that may at first shake you up (that's what Uranus likes to do!) but then pushes you outside of your comfort zone! Some of you may have discussions or disagreements with others that may bring something to your attention that you never knew... which could create temporary tension or even separation.
What Uranus wants to do is break you free from what no longer serves you so all that flies in through the window is always for your highest and greatest good. This is something to trust and be open to instead of feel fear of!
Your intuition has been at an all time high lately- follow the feelings and the messages you've been downloading and trust them instead of question and fight them... especially last week and moving into the week ahead!
Last week, many of us were very serious-minded and planning for (or worrying about!) the future. We were slow to move and feeling cautious which looking back is actually perfect with the placement and movement of the moon as we ease now into dark moon status. During this time you really don't want to rush forward as the universe is currently energetically cleaning and sweeping the floors to prepare for the arrival of this upcoming new moon and this week ahead!
Mars (the planet of action!) moves into Aries this week and is the push we need to get motivated and energized again! Aries is a go getter and self starter and Mars is the rocket fuel while the new moon opens the door for you and lights the match! You are roaring and ready to go! For some of you this momentum will feel natural and easy- you're not afraid to switch things up and try something new or exciting!
For others, this can feel like a lot to deal with, risky, or dangerous but in all honesty your steps are protected and it is okay for you to put yourself out there, even if it's something you wouldn't normally do!
Remember, Aquarius is all about doing what hasn't been done before and if there is a time to step out on your own it's now!
8 OF SWORDS, 6 OF SWORDS, ACE OF CUPS
So much swords energy has been surfacing lately! Swords represent the mind & logic, moving through obstacles, and cutting out what is no longer needed so you can move forward unhindered and free!
That is exactly what we're being asked to do this week and it reflects in the energy of our cards!
8 of Swords shows us that we have been allowing our fears, insecurities, and self perceived limitations to hold us back for a little too long... and the 6 of Swords is ready to move forward! The swords represent the tools (your brilliant mind, focus, and opportunity) that you need to do and have while the ace of cups shows me the importance and strong pull of a calling heart!
The heart feels so strongly and will call you to jump through hoops of fire to find what it loves and will make it most happy... and a part of that means finding the strength to face your fears!
The mind is your greatest weapon here that you can use to either work for you or against you and this week and new moon you will be strong and ready to break free and take the risk to find and follow what really lights up the lanterns of your life!"
Astro Chat w/Jess- How to Power Through the Time Times: Difficult Full Moons & Transits, Squares in Natal Chart, & Negativity!
The Astro Cliff Notes:
- Full Moon in Cancer- full moon exposes, reveals, and brings about a resolution! Sitting in Cancer a highly emotional sign!
- Mercury goes Direct! Communication clears and the path reopens!
- Mercury Moves into Capricorn- we become more serious minded, focused, and zero back in on our responsibilities and commitments!
- A huge cosmic square- tension fills the skies! We'll feel this personally as well as see signs of it globally!
- Vertex Point gets Activated- fated encounters are in the mix!
- Venus and Neptune align- dreams come true, true love bubbles and soulmates unite!
Last week was all about watching what flies in through the windows of your life and diving into some deep cleansing whether you were purging your home or work environment, getting rid of an old way of thinking (restrictive thoughts, anxiety, fear, etc.), or breaking through barriers that will benefit you in the long haul!
This week the full moon is something else that you're going to want to keep your eyes open for! It's occurring Thursday in the sign of Cancer and you will want to check to see where this full moon is positioned in your own personal astro chart because that is the house- or section- of your chart and life that will be lit up!
Full moons expose and reveal... they also bring things to a head or conclusion so you will be in a position that you will clearly be able to see what you will need or want to do next in life! Think of this as the final act of a play's performance: the curtain comes up, the lights flash on, and we see the final scene. Whether it's a beautiful scene or one that troubles us depends on our luck and the placement of our personal planets!
What Makes This Full Moon So Special...
Uranus (the planet of surprise and revelation) in the sign of Aries (the sign of the pioneer and self starter), Jupiter (the planet that expands all that it touches), and Saturn (the planet of restriction) are all here butting heads with the moon which can create conflict and tension just as much as it can cause opportunity for some serious decisions and actions to be made! Where Mercury retrograde has been making us foggy and unable to think or see things clearly now with this moon and the planet going direct we're able to finally see what we've been missing and begin to plan to take our next steps forward!
Something else that stands out to me is the union of the Full Moon and the vertex point- the angle within the universe that for us rules fated and chance encounters! This moon is a recipe for surprise and with placements like these in such a soft and sensitive sign this could really manifest itself in true love pairings and connections, significant moments within relationships, and valuable business/career and health moments!
This isn't something you would have to force although it does help to be out and about circulating- especially if you're single and looking for the One, bouncing ideas off of mentors and business partners, or looking for a good idea or breakthrough!
For others, the vertex brings opportunities into our lives that are gifts from above- things that we have been waiting for or building towards and with the full moon bringing it all to a head it's like throwing a hand full of confetti into the air in celebration!
If you've been busy and actively building and preparing than you'll do fine! If you've been resisting change and refusing to move forward than this can really hit you like a ton of bricks. Be open, stay flexible and you will do more than just fine!! However, the placement of the planets is literally force-pushing you forward to make the changes that you've been NEEDING to for a while. Chances are you already know this and if we wait too long or drag our feet or ignore the signs that is the moment when you will experience pain or feel suffering. To let go and let God is far better!
That being said this week Mercury (ruling thoughts and communication) moves into the sign of Capricorn- grounding our thoughts, making us feel focused, serious minded, and more realistic! On the flip side, Venus (the planet of love and beauty) pairs with Neptune (the planet of fantasy and amazement!) in the sign that she feels the most comfortable in! Dreams, wishes, and true love is REAL! All planets are now moving forward- no more hesitation, resistance, or blockages! It's time to lace your boots up and prepare for what flies in the door- you're going to be so glad you did!
The Tarotscope: Two of Swords and Three of Wands
Two of Swords and Three of Wands are the tarot message bringers for this week! With the planets astrologically aligned in the tense manner that they are now you really are going to want to pause and see what flies in through the open window! With the full moon's placement in the sensitive sign of Cancer emotions and feelings can really bubble and brew over and the Two of Swords reminds us to pause before instantly reacting. Ask yourself again and again, "Is this something that is in alignment with what I want for myself?" so you are reminded of the best action you should take. This allows you to reconnect back with your ultimate and greater vision! The Three of Wands is the card of messages coming up on the horizon and intentions beginning to manifest themselves- something is definitely brewing here for all of us!
Astro & Tarot Energy Update for Jan 6th-13th, 2017
What a week of profound change! Mercury goes direct after having been retrograde since Dec 19th, an explosive full moon, and the set up for profound and deep personal change!
Let's start with the Sun (representing life energy) sitting in the sign of serious minded Capricorn. January 6th and 7th he- the Sun- join to perfection with Pluto, the sign of huge transformation! The two together ask us to do a deep cleansing of our energy and our space getting rid off all that no longer serves us to make space and time for those things that will work to serve us better!
Many of you will find yourselves deep cleaning shelves, throwing away old stuff, preparing and opening yourselves to experience your own forms of purging and releasing of all kinds! The other half will see incredible and awesome changes as a result of their hardwork, commitment, and past actions coming to a head now! These changes are for the better and chances are they are supportive for the long haul because Capricorn energy grounds and commits to what it knows will pay off for its long term vision!
These two planets sitting in the sign of Capricorn that is so serious minded shows me right away how committed you are to your own personal growth and how much you plan to build only the best that your life has to offer in business, relationships, in health, and happiness! Be very mindful and aware of the thoughts, visions, and changes that come to you now and take them seriously- the universe is always sending signals of what you're going to want to do next, what doors are opening and closing for you, and when it is time to begin to prepare for the awesomeness of what is next!
That being said, the huge signal will come on January 12, 2017 and the time nearing and passing that (give or take two days)! This is an explosive full moon falling in the emotional and sweetly sensitive sign of Cancer! This affects us ALL but doubly so for Cancers, Libras, Capricorns, and Aries! Check to see where your personal planets fall in your chart (if you need help with this, reach out to Jess, @BehatiLife) to see just how much this will influence you or just keep your antenna up because anything that is to show up definitely will!
Why? Well because the full moon brings things to our attention. To be honest, it FORCES things to our attention but we feel so grateful for this because at least we are able to see what is going on! It is better to know than not know, in a lot of ways!
Four major planets are directly involved with this creating a tense square in the sky... this is something that could absolutely touch us in our personal lives but I wouldn't be surprised if there is a huge shake up globally with the outer planets squaring each other like this.
The Sun in Capricorn wants structure, leadership, and stability while Uranus (the planet of rebellion) likes to shake things up- in both good and bad ways. For those that know tarot, think of the planet Uranus as the Tower card- you never quite know what you're going to get, you just know to expect the unexpected!
Uranus sits in the sign of Aries, fueling and sparking this energy further while the moon (ruling feeling and emotions) falls in the sign of sensitive Cancer creating the potential for an emotionally charged outcome. Jupiter on the opposite side sitting in Libra would love to see everyone getting along and party (ha! Jupiter is the party animal and Libra calls out, "Can't we all just get along?!") but there's just so much tension brewing under the surface that really, anything can happen.
Is this all bad? Hell no! In fact this could really be awesomely GOOD! For you see, all things serve their purpose and every good astrologer knows that when planets square like this it creates the perfect amount of friction to cause growth and transformation! This could be the game changer time when you are freed from old constricting ways or people (remember the sun and pluto conjoining which we talked about above?!) and blasting you off into the direction of your dreams!
As crazy as this all sounds some of you can even find serious true love or soulmate partnerships, or experience blissful change unlike any other! Why? Well because the greatest of loves tends to drastically change our lives and I can not fail to mention the absolutely stunning position of Venus (the planet of love, affection, beauty) sitting wonderfully in the sign of Pisces- the sign she (venus) can shine the most!
Her and Neptune are dancing together like Cinderella and the Prince, despite all of the fireworks exploding around them! If it sounds extra dreamy its because an aspect like this really is! Magic happens with these two coming together and with aspects like these that true love connection can really linger for life! Remember, these planets represent energy so if it's not true love for you then this can manifest itself in other supremely wonderful out of this world ways!
Other Important Things to Mention:
Mercury goes direct January 8th- communication will being to clear but give it a few days as the days surrounding a planet shifting its rotation we tend to see it act up in weird ways (misplacing keys, fender benders, loosing emails, miscommunications, etc.)
The tarot cards for this energy are: Tower and Three of Wands!
Tower card- expect the unexpected and three of wands says, "be open and watch what flies in the window!"
These cards remind you that change can happen out of nowhere but this is a response to the intentions that you've been setting! Be open to transformation because you will be so surprised in how wonderful things are aligning right now simply just to ensure your greatest happiness! All things that happen are for a reason and the Universe is reminding you that it has your back!"
• ASTRO UPDATE •
Venus enters #Pisces today (check your natal to see where this is falling within your chart!) & in this position she really shines giving us the aura of looking at the world through dreamy rose colored glasses, loosing ourselves in imagination, believing & experiencing true & deep #spiritual love!
Of course, the movement of Venus within your chart will affect you each differently depending on placement & what she rules but as a whole her influence softens all that she touches!
The 1st planet she connects w/ is retrograding mercury (ruling communication, thoughts, #travel) which pushes us to reconnect w/ people we haven’t talked to in a while or miss, past life memories, or even old wounds that we are working on #healing & cleansing our lives of.
Mercury WANTS to connect & Venus in her position greets him w/ open arms, a warm hug, & a huge smile- this energy infused within our lives has a wonderful effect on relationships of ALL kinds!
Sun in Capricorn grounds the ethereal (& maybe even spacey!) energy glittering from Venus’s placement, the Moon’s (emotion, feelings) upcoming connection w/ Neptune (which rules Pisces so again it’s like we’re floating on a pink cloud!).
This weekend the Sun (life force energy) connects with Pluto- planet of great #transformation- so we are encouraged NOW to begin to focus on what we need to clear/purge out in order to make space for the magic of love, new life, positive vibes to enter into our lives! It will be absolutely magical!
>> To Do List <<
+❤Believe in true love/soul mates! Focus on LOVE!
+ 🌹Call your BFF, mom, people you love!
+ 💐Treat yourself to something absolutely #beautiful!
+ 🌄Take a vacation to a lakeside/ocean side mountain (Capricorn= mountains, Pisces rules big bodies of water!)

On October 16, 2016 at 12:23 AM EST we have a full moon occurring within the sign of Aries. This is a planetary shift that will affect us ALL whether you are an Aries or not as you can find Aries and the movement of the planets within every single person’s chart, regardless of their sun or ascendant sign.
The first thing that draws my attention is the connection of the moon and Uranus. Uranus provides disruption, change, and breaks the rules (and not always just for the hell of it)!
Uranus reminds us that sometimes we get stuck in old patterns of doing things not understanding why we ever decided to do them to begin with! Sometimes our old established routines and guidelines for living may be detrimental to our Self or hasn’t served the greater whole but yet we continue to mindlessly follow them. Uranus works to disrupt and change that and in this case connects directly and intimately with our full moon energy bringing these old ways to the forefront.
Sun in Libra ideally would like to work in unison with others but the Moon in Aries (the sign of independence, courage, action, and assertion) conjoined with the voice of Uranus pushes back saying, “I need to do what is best for ME. I can not alone serve only you. I love you or I respect you but this is for me”.
Mercury the planet of communication and thought as well as manyother things boxes with Pluto the planet of transformation and mars the known warrior planet. With this, disagreements and tension can build to a point where it can feel pretty damn uncomfortable for everyone in the room!
Natal Node (karma and direction) and Saturn- the planet of lessons that we need to learn- looks directly at us as the sweat builds on our brows. Saturn watches closely and challenges us with stern eyes that communicate the message, “What will you do..? I am watching. Have you learned from the lessons of the past I’ve placed in your life to teach you? Or will you give up, melt down, take the easy way out?”
You know instinctively what this means for you, tribe.
For some of us, this means finally saying, “No.” For others, this is about putting yourself FIRST because you have been putting the focus on others to the detriment of your Self.
Some will be “kicked out” of their current situations into the cold, banging on windows and doors begging to be let back in because you have energetically refused to move forward and step out with something you have been needing or have been guided to do. You will realize soon that you have everything that you have ever needed to thrive and be successful and that this push forward is actually an incredible gift! After every astrological storm you will find a beautiful rainbow!
Globally tensions build and can explode this weekend and the week ahead, especially as people are fighting for equality, truth, and balance! Tensions can rise in ways where violence that has been brewing UNDER the surface for a while can erupt to the surface. For this reason we will need to be aware and vigilant.
Chiron in Pisces connects us ALL to a spiritual and higher level of healing. Pisces sees the greater picture and will help us to make tremendous progress- globally and intimately within our own personal lives- within the areas of love, healing, art, and expression.
This full moon’s chart may be filled with tension pulled as tight as a stretched rubber band but we are with placements like these we are pushed up and forward to grow, to take much needed risks, to strike out on our own, express and stand up for ourselves, and take the next steps towards our highest purpose!
If you’re feeling the powerful nudge in your life- EMBRACE it and develop along with it! Don’t fight the wave- flow with it and you will be surprised what beautiful place this astrological ocean is trying to take you!
Could this Libra New Moon be ANY more beautiful?! After the slamming around that occurred during the eclipses and retrograded periods we’ve all been feeling a bit like pebbles rattling around in an old rusted tin can! The cosmos sense our need for beauty and respite...and here comes this Libra Moon rushing around the corner on its white horse to infuse beauty and lovely vibes into our lives!
Libra is in the sign that is connected to beauty and aesthetic, attraction, luxury, balance and partnerships so instantly those areas of our life are being triggered. Also, you’ll definitely want to check your natal chart to see what house- or section- of your chart Libra rules as that is where you’ll see doors opening and the corners of your life receiving light and a breath of fresh air!
NEW MOONS= NEW BEGINNINGS!
New Moons (as you know, my wise astrologically in tune tribe of stargazers and lovers!) are symbolically the universe’s way of nudging things into motion, signaling you to set an intention for the blessings you wish to bring into your life (whoop! Just looked at the clock and it’s 3:33- total confirmation!)!
JUPITER BRINGS GIFTS!
To add another scoop of goodness onto your plate of life we have Jupiter’s move into the sign of Libra!
Jupiter is a bit slow and sluggish in making moves but when he does he brings gifts and those gifts are of high value and worth- things we can feel “over the moon” about!
These ‘gifts’ don’t necessarily have to be actual physical things but could arrive as people, opportunities, and exciting moments of growth and experiences that we wouldn’t trade for the world!
All of this again is happening in- Yup! You guessed it!- the sign of Libra… exactly where this new moon is sitting and stirring!
Now, let’s look and find the planet Venus (who rules Libra!). We find her sitting in deep, sexy, passionate Scorpio- a sign that is known for its ability and interest in “diving deep” into the depths of the human experience! This sign loves hard and sees all! This sign does not entertain superficial relationships or experiences. It wants the real deal… all or nothing! Because Venus is currently moving through this sign she picks up and wears these traits like a coat.
NEPTUNE BLOWS KISSES!
To make it all the more magical she (Venus) and Neptune are here blowing kisses at each other in their lovely magical trine! Neptune rules the ethereal pieces of life so when he makes a connection like this we can’t help but to feel those butterflies in our stomach and have stars in our eyes! If you’re asking if this is “too good to be true” then just allow yourself the time to enjoy the present moment for all that it is, realizing that wonderful things can absolutely happen for you!
The sun (life energy!) is sitting side by side with Saturn, who normally can be a bit grumpy but here he is nodding his head quick and sternly in approval leaving his signature of confirmation that locks in this blessing and gift for the long-term!
If you’re setting intentions for this new moon (which I STRONGLY suggest that you do!) allow your heart to feel warm, mushy, and pink with all that you feel will be wonderful to receive!
Envision how you would like your life to look like, your love life (especially!), miraculous healing, and other ways you’re ready for the universe to sweep you off of your feet!
Love and light to you all!

No matter what your sun sign, ascendant, or how your natal chart falls this eclipse will have an effect on you and holds important influence- some more than others- so it is always worthwhile to have a look into your chart to see where the moon falls and how the transiting planets are aligning! (If you need help with this and want to book an astro reading, click here!)
Pisces is ruled by Neptune- a planet that is widely known as the “higher octave of Venus”, meaning that where Venus (the planet ruling beauty & aesthetic, love, & valuables) remains at most on a superficial level (no offense, Venus, but let’s be real!) Neptune deepens the love to a spiritual level, lifts us to see that nothing really is ever impossible (I see you rolling your eyes at me for saying this!), and that there is more to the life experience than work and things.
Full Moons are raw- stripping away the fluff to see what truly lies beneath the surface and with this moon falling in Pisces we are given a glimpse of what only few will ever experience- a glimpse into our soul’s purpose, reason for existence, ways to profoundly heal, as well as connections to spiritual and soul love (cue twin flames and soul mates)!
The vibration is higher- matching what many of us spiritual seekers and thrivers infuse into our lives daily… yet here it is now freely sitting here at our fingertips waiting to be further activated!
The moon (the driving force of this eclipse) is moving away from an opposition with currently retrograding Mercury which for many of us could bring back thoughts of the 'mistakes' of the past. We think about what we could have done differently, how we can further help to heal ourselves as well as be of service to others, and our own personal evolution while we’re here on earth. We find our thoughts and mind lingering and drifting.
This is not something to fight... rather observe where your mind wanders and your feelings flow. Absorb the messages that they bring.
This is a chance to be honest and vulnerable with the self (something a lot of us like to avoid!) and with that comes the opportunity to heal and dissolve obstacles and lingering belief systems that were placed into our lives by karma to encourage us to grow and evolve further in love!
This is the moon eclipse for soul mate and twin flame connections, for divine interventions, for magical insight and psychic vision, for finding and pursuing our soul’s purpose, for using our gifts to heal and be of service to others, to expose our hearts and vulnerabilities (especially with Chiron being so deeply connected to this eclipse!), and for artists and creative people to unfold further in their wondrous expression!
Happy Full Moon Eclipse, BehatiVibeTribers!
Mercury Retrograde is not NEARLY as bad as people make it out to be! As a professional (and super passionate!) star gazer and astrologer there are far worse thinks, trust me!
In fact, you can make mercury retrograde WORK for YOU- skipping over all the snags and snafus!
Mercury falls in all of our chart and is important because this speedy little planet rules such a large chunk of our lives!
Thoughts/Thinking/ Mind Activity
Electronics and items with working/moveable parts
When it is direct- meaning the times when it is moving forward through the cosmos normally, i.e. not retrograde! - it brings movement, momentum, and activity to all it touches… usually in a positive way, despite being a bit of a trickster sometimes ;).
However, when it is retrograde- meaning when it flips its rotation and appears to spin backwards- it can change the way the little guy would normally operate, so the things that he rules will need extra attention or TLC.
The planets rely on Mercury’s work to move messages around swiftly and to increase productivity but even planets need to take a break from their normal responsibilities so when it is his retrograde time you will notice some changes:
What You Can Expect:
Activity begins to slow down- mental and physical
Things get lost in the mail, small items get lost
Electronics need extra attention- loosing/deleting files, crashing phones and laptops
Transportation issues- missing flights, confusion, etc.
Miscommunications- extra clarity will be needed and is called for!
As all things in the universe- when something may SEEM bad it’s actually RIPE with potential… if you know what do and what to look for!
Make it WORK for YOU!
As mercury slows down so should you. He rules thoughts and mental activity so if you're still trying to push a project forward or race against time you're only wasting your own resources and energy. Take this as a chance to slow down, breathe, and revamp your calendar and schedule so that when the planet is finally moving forward you are ready to maximize your time and effort with an updated game plan that works!
REVISIT AND REVISE
Return to open or lingering projects that need your attention! Fine tune details, cross those T’s and dot those I’s, and make corrections to tiny (and usually missed!) mistakes!
Mercury Retrograde brings back the times that we thought we may have lost forever… this includes people and things! The universe was designed whole and complete so because of this it will bring you back the chance to try something again… only this time to do it better and right the second time around! Watch what shows itself during this period and take some time to consider whether or not you want to give it another ‘go!
Many people hear from their ex’s or people that they’ve lost contact with during this timer. Use this as a time to repair an old relationship, to gain clarity, or try love again! Even if you decide that you don’t want to be with this person moving forward into the future, this can still be a chance to settle your differences, be honest, or to resolve any lingering wounds that have been left sitting open. Mercury retrograde is wonderful for this!
This is PRIME TIME for my fabulously thrifting friends! Mercury retrograde brings back the gems of the past so if moving through consignment, vintage, or thrift shops is your ‘thing’ then now is the perfect time!
Mercury rules small parts and movable things so when he goes retrograde he’ll nudge any weak parts to the surface to avoid larger problems down the line. Capitalize on this! If you hear a weird noise under your car- get it checked out.
I would, however, avoid phone updates during this time simply because 9 times out of 10 you will find annoying problems with them that will later have to be addressed and fixed once mercury goes direct again. Just trust me on this. ;)
Now is the BEST time to move through your closet and get rid of old things that you’ll no longer want or wear, to organize and refresh, and to organize your desk or other storage places!
However, there are a few things that you’re going to want to avoid:
DON’T START ANYTHING NEW!
This means no starting new jobs or new relationships! However, if an old job or person from the past is a part of what you are considering then you may be in the clear! Remember, Mercury retrograde brings back the things from the past… a chance or opportunity that could have been missed. So if it feels right, then I say go for it!
AVOID SIGNING AGREEMENTS AND CONTRACTS
Chances are you will need to change your mind later on or there is something that is missing/ you’re not seeing. Mercury rules contracts and also mental clarity so if you’re saying yes and signing on the dotted line you may find yourself having to revisit or even regretting it later. It’s best to wait a week AFTER mercury has moved back into forward motion again.
Remember, Mercury is HIGHLY connected to brain activity- so what you THINK is what will come! Flip the switch during the retrograde period by acknowledging and capitalizing on the abundance of gifts and opportunities this planet can give, even in its backwards motion!
It's always good to have a back up plan and additional energetic support! Check out my Mercury Retrograde Intention oil that was blended by hand and charged with the intention of helping you to reap the benefits during this time as well as protect against the annoyances that can bring you down!

The New Moon in Leo is setting the stage for a beautiful fire cracker show of positive energy, romance, expansion, beauty... and even baby making! Read on to get all the juicy details!
Hey star gazers and astro explorers! I'm so excited to reach out to you again to talk about this upcoming new moon and can I just say- I absolutely am in LOVE with it and the picture that it's painting for all of us! It's a feast fit for the kings for setting intentions and cosmic positivity and it's all swirling around and above our heads waiting for us to reach up and grab it!
Let's start with this:
New Moons are astrological symbols of new beginnings and endless potential! This is where the moon and sun meet together with love and rain blessings down upon us! Doors that normally would stay closed and sealed tight are now blowing wide open bringing a gust of exciting and positive changes!
This New Moon falls in the sign of Leo a sign that is deliciously passionate, exciting, fun, and expressive! Leo is ruled by the sun- the same sun that all the other planets revolve around- and this hot blooded glowing star that rules our galaxy desires recognition, infuses us with life giving energy, and encourages us ALL to glow internally from within- from our hearts!
This is the new moon to SQUASH your own self limiting belief and doubts, to believe in yourself and in your vision, set some BOLD intentions (anything can happen here- do NOT hold back in asking for the life of your dreams!), and to live your life with example and incredible purpose!
This New Moon encourages us to put ourselves out there by speaking up, singing loud, letting your voice be heard, share your grand ideas, switch from the dull and mundane to a bit of the outrageous, to be PROUD and BRAVE, to lead by example, to ask for MORE, to love LOUD, to ask for the BEST, to believe in the magical, to take that risk, to create something AWESOME!
This is YOUR moon to paint and even more colorful picture that is your life!
This is the time to:
- Positive changes made now during this time can have a lasting rippling effect, so SEE and ACKNOWLEDGE the best of what can come, set the bar HIGH, and follow your heart with your intentions! It's not possible to mess this up so don't nip your fear in the bud when moving from a heart guided place!
- Plan a beautiful trip that factors in some time for relaxation, luxury, or beauty!
- Try a new beauty regimen (something that makes you FEEL fabulous and glow!
- Switch up your old exercise routine with something that is fun and lifts your spirits!

- Get guzzied up & enjoy a night out! I'm seeing someone meeting someone fated and sparking a beautiful relationship that sparkles with chemistry and connection!
- In a relationship? Try new and fun things together! Plan a trip or journey together that may factor in a little couples pampering! Now is also a beautiful time to plan a date night with a hot tub, a bottle of champagne, and a sky full of stars (how romantic!)
- Leo is connected to the 5th house of sex, pleasure, and even children! This is a perfect time for baby making, creative expression!

Capricorn Full Moon Chart Interpretation:
So, I'm in love with this chart of the moment that paints the picture of the energy of this Capricorn Full Moon! I'll be blending astrology (the math and science) with intuition in order to bring you what I see and what cosmically is swirling above us in the sky!
Let's start with the moon...
The Moon in Capricorn connects us instantly with a sense or need for privacy or even a feeling of guarding or protecting something sacred and vulnerable. This is a beautiful thing if you think about it because the moon represents our inner most sensitive feelings and emotions and sitting in such an exclusive sign like Capricorn the first thing I feel is the desire to protect and shield something special that each of us are holding. I see this "special something" as our DEEPEST desires, hopes and wishes, goals, and long term vision... the things that we are striving for within our lives that we may not always disclose or share publically. Paired with the symbolism and energy of the full moon which gifts us with the chance to sit with our highlighted desires, to bring things to a culmination, and to be honest with ourselves and others I'm seeing the chance for us to bring these quietly brewing plans and desires to the forefront of our awareness tonight and in the days to come!
The universe has a way of nudging us forward and the time around full or new moon are the moments when you will most likely see this movement beginning to happen so it's so important to be aware but also to speak up clearly about your intentions and what you want as the energy around us is quickly shifting and evolving to make room for blessings and opportunity!
The Moon in Capricorn instantly connects us to the planet of Saturn because it rules Capricorn. Here Saturn asks you now to take your dreams and goals SERIOUSLY. Sitting in Sagittarius (the sign that wants to expand & explore with leaps and bounds!) it's leaning back, tipping its hat at us and says, "Let's make the grand vision POSSIBLE with a feasible plan!"
Make the plan that will GET you there!
The next thing that is drawing my attention in this chart is the little dance happening between Venus and Mercury- both of them are playing in the beautiful sign of Leo- putting stars in their eyes! They can SEE, FEEL, and CONCEPTUALIZE just how wonderful the future will be- the full bells and whistles, the finer things of life, the romance and drama of a life well lived! Both Mercury & Venus contact Saturn the co-parent of this full moon and Saturn is acting now like the older mature father figure who sits you on his knee and says to you, "Darling- if you want it, it is yours. Just make a plan and put it in to action. I will support you when you need help... but I need to see you take the first step!"
Globally, we are still getting SLAMMED (you will see this tension in the news & in our current events!) so I still caution us ALL to follow our hearts, stay vigilant, send prayers, and keep "connected" to your Higher Power/place of peace. This is important and is felt across the globe but will keep you in a place of guided protection despite external chaos!
Things to Do This Full Moon:
+ Revisit/ Develop your game plan for what you are hoping and ready to accomplish!
+ Set intentions for lasting commitments you are inviting and building in your life (business, romance, contracts, moving, etc!)
+ Make a commitment to be your BEST SELF! To take care of your body, mind, and soul!

Happy Full Moon, space bunnies!
I’m switching things up today and bringing out the big guns- let’s dive into the astrological energy of today, shall we! (with good timing- today and tomorrow may be a bit of a doozy!)
First and foremost, the sun (life energy) and Venus are moving through Gemini which is wonderful for anything involving writing, communicating, and quick fun trips however these two planets are considered personal planets that affect us greatly- and they’re not sitting comfortably in their current position while Jupiter (planet of expansion), Neptune (illusion and fantasy) push up against them, while Saturn (planet of lessons learned!) sits directly across challenging and pushing pressure like an angry parent! With Gemini energy and these planets are currently in each other's space causing friction I wouldn't be surprised to hear you are feeling jittery, shaky, nervous or anxious, easily irritated... or if you work well under this influence then maybe super productive and hyper focused today getting much done in record time (be careful to not over do it though! I'll explain why as you read along!)
The visual I’m getting is like the day after a night of heavy drinking or eating where you are bloated, foggy, and lazy while someone is yelling t you to get up and get going (and FIND A JOB! Saturn is the parent that would pull you from your bed by the ankle and tell you to get in the shower, and hit the pavement submitting your resume to all the businesses in your area! LOL!)
The moon (emotions, intuition, feeling) is sitting in aggressive and goal driven Aries but will soon be moving to butt heads with Pluto (transformation and destruction ) today and tomorrow making those of us who are sensitive vulnerable to getting hurt. Some may push their own limits, step on other’s toes, over exert themselves.
BE CAREFUL with this! It’s not so destructive that it could lead to serious or lasting damage…it’s more that you push yourself to a breaking point because you’ll be prone to doing TOO much, you can’t see clearly the line that was crossed, or when you should stop and have a seat instead of trying to push forward.
Mars (drive, force, ambition) is still retrograding and quietly trying to move backwards- all engines are shut off right now for the time being- honor this period while this planet moves backwards through Scorpio (a sign that rules diving into the unknown, exploring the depths, uprooting and seeking the truth).
Protecting us the lovely trine (positive flowing energy) between Jupiter in Virgo, Mercury (communication) in Taurus, and Pluto in earthy Capricorn- all wonderfully grounded signs, presenting us the opportunity to again sloowwww down, take it easy, do something nice for yourself, enjoy a nice fulfilling yummy nutritious salad! Even though Jupiter pushing against the sun and Venus is currently causing us to feel bloated and sluggish and prone to overdoing it we can still use this energy to feel good simply by just being aware!
