When you have precise directions to get from point A to point B, and one of the roads involved is closed, the rest of the directions are rendered useless until you find a way around that road -- that is, unless you really know where you are. Knowing where you are makes finding a detour relatively easy. Grounded Taurus lunar vibes will help.
These last days of the Sagittarian sun will be an education. Being able to differentiate between what you know and don't know -- that's the trick. And it's a lot more difficult than it seems. There are many assumptions people make in this regard, as humans love to feel knowledgeable, but the wise will step back and wonder.

It's a fire sign sun and a fire sign moon. Passion is catching on and spreading on the wind. So should you even try to keep your head? Yes.

If the king does a good job, he'll go down in history. The peasant, on the other hand, speculates that reward may never come. That's why the peasant's contribution is purer and nobler. As the moon comes up against the tests of Saturn, those who fare well are the ones who resolve to do their highest and best regardless of who will know.

Today's talk centers on what we deserve out of life. Is anyone inherently deserving of more than the essential human freedoms of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? Deserving or not, the lunar conjunction of Neptune and Mars suggests that getting expectations met depends largely on educating others as to what they are.

Inner guidance strengthens its voice under the Pisces moon, so if you can help it (and few are emotionally independent enough, but it's certainly something to strive for), try not to let yourself be swayed by praise, condemnation, encouragement or criticism. Truly, these comments from the world are but distractions from the quiet work of the ...Read more
This Mercury transit brings the desire for fresh adventure, new alliances and electric experience. Now what's behind all this drive to change? The impetus matters to the outcome. The best way is to move toward the future in the spirit of curiosity and wonder, as opposed to moving forward in the manner of someone running from a bear.

There's a classic "Seinfeld" episode in which Kramer tries to get tips from Jerry about taking a shower. In a moment of insecurity, Kramer is bent on making sure he has not somehow missed a powerful, crucial point about bathing that everyone else is in on. The Aquarius moon suggests that there is no magic secret to uncover. Do it your way.
Two assets will open the whole world up today. What do you think they are? No, not good looks and swagger. Not superb taste and pocket change. A serviceable attitude and a strong work ethic are good to have, but those aren't it, either. With the lunar shift to Aquarius, it's warmth and genuine interest that will get you where you want to go.
Chiron forms an angle to Mercury to amp up the pleasantness of small exchanges, which may seem to have a disproportionate effect on our moods. There's no question that the feeling we get from interacting positively with a cashier, barista, fellow traveler or the like has a buoying effect different from the effect we get from an interaction ...Read more
If the alignment of Mars and Neptune had a song, it would be "The Impossible Dream" by Mitch Leigh and Joe Darion. The lyrics recall a quest that includes, among other things, "To try when your arms are too weary, to reach the unreachable star." It sounds rather grand, but happens in small ways for today's courageous.

Between the new moon in Sagittarius and the conjunction of Mars and Neptune in Pisces, there's a dream of other worlds hovering on the horizon -- worlds with different rules, worlds built for specifically with people like us in mind, worlds where we can finally be fully ourselves. And though, alas, it's but a dream, so was this world at one ...Read more
This new moon, with the change of Mercury, is a bit like a mystery box. The box has a door that unlocks with a key, and the key is a single, burning question that is private and unique to each person. Before we ask it, thus turning the key and opening the door, there is perhaps one more thing to consider. How badly do we want to know?

Venus transits considered, the cosmic forces currently agree with William Shakespeare in that friendship is constant except for in matters of love. Every heart has its own language. "Let every eye negotiate for itself and trust no agent." Who someone loves is a very particular thing and no friend can tell another the soundness of that idea.
Should you face your fear or ignore it? While neglected things do have a way of disappearing, this method will take a while. The quickest way is to invite your fear in for tea. By accepting your apprehensions and agreeing to work with them under this Scorpio moon (which includes a lunar trine to Neptune) you will develop effective coping ...Read more
Should you tell the other person how you really feel? This needs to be carefully weighed in an equation dividing the intensity of the sentiment by its likely duration, and you need to factor in the potential for disruption and inconvenience and the likely emotional fallout. The lunar shift from Libra to Scorpio is a complicated time for ...Read more
A square of the sun and Mars will point out that though a number of people may show up at the same place at the same time, each person is not present to the same degree. Never has this been truer than in the digital age, when attention so scarcely is focused on things happening in the larger environment of our being.

Becoming is a function of nature in that what we become is already inside us. Unlike caterpillars, humans have more than one dormant potential and much depends on nurturing. Still, it is not necessary to push, strive or wish you were anything other than you are. As Mercury backs into the sign of transformation, trust in your own becoming.
Materialism ruins moods and oceans, but how do you get away from it? Bringing just 2 percent more awareness to your attitudes and practices around "stuff" (including how much of it you need and what to do with it when you're over it) is enough to make a difference in your happiness and in the world at large. So sayeth the earthy Virgo moon.
