On this, the last day of a Mars cycle, we note that control is an illusion, not a solution. Oddly enough, the need to control things and people often gets in the way of managing life like a boss. Seek a comprehensive understanding of the nature of things to align them properly and harness their power to a particular end.

Is your wallet vibrating? Those with expensive taste may feel a tingle in their card-swiping hand as the messenger planet enters the sign of money, possessions, luxurious appetites and sensual selectiveness. Keep in mind that opulence is in the eye of the beholder, and many of life's best flavors are readily available to the aware connoisseur....Read more
The sun and a retrograde Mercury form a silly triangle of missteps, miscommunications and missed connections, the likes of which are the essential building blocks of romantic comedy. Those bold enough to speak their hearts clearly may or may not get the response they hope for, but they will certainly save themselves time.

As the Taurus sun breathes its last few breaths of this particular solar journey, there are still wishes unwished and voids unfilled, longings that stretch achingly into tomorrow. The Gemini sun assumes the role undaunted, perhaps knowing that when the new social energies kick in, these holes may not fill, but we'll learn to jump over them.
The sun comes into a lucky agreement with Pluto. "Let's put our money into what matters," they say. It's people, yes, but it's more than that, because people cannot be without an environment that sustains them. And so, the money flows to protect what might still be protected about this place.

Oh, to have the soaring confidence of the eagle, so high above the atmosphere that the opinions of the scurrying creatures below cannot bring him down. And yet, from a mile high, the eagle can still see what the mouse is saying about him. Without this ability, he'd be one hungry eagle. Bare your sensitivity with pride, knowing it serves a ...Read more
Happy relationships start with a good match. This includes the relationship with work, domestic life and more. The Mars and Neptune conjunction calls for a little faith that the future will bring better matches. Life has a way of making room for them. Minor losses signal major gains to come. Roll with the changes and believe it's going in your...Read more
In May, the full moon is a flower, this time blinking with flirtatious energy, and as an eclipse reminds us that even the best things come with a degree of uncertainty. If it were not so, life wouldn't be exciting. The mysterious Scorpio lunar waves soon take the shape of an arrow, driving toward an adventure beyond the horizon.

The sun and Saturn suggest friction, conflict, the sand in the pearl, the bug in the eye of an otherwise blissful bike ride. The moon is swelling to fullness in Scorpio with a lunar eclipse; is it a blink of that big eye to assure that all is well? Is it the wink of a flirt, the ocular stutter to suggest lies? It's up to interpretation; so, ...Read more
With social currents strong all weekend, the fates favor diplomacy. People will demonstrate status in various ways: by throwing parties, holding meetings, putting on shows and more. Consider that the more driven someone is to prove their power, the less powerful they believe themselves to be. True power is the ability to command oneself.
Many tall buildings avoid naming the 13th floor and go right to the 14th (or more conspicuously to "12B") in hopes of getting around the bad luck. There are airports without a 13th gate and teams without a player No. 13. What superstition do you keep alive to avoid bad luck or engender good luck? Is it working?

Words can be the sweetest keys, twisting in places we didn't even know were locked. The moon in the sign of lovers and partnerships of all kinds forms auspicious angles to Pluto, and then the Mercury retrograde. This bodes well for saying just the right thing to open doors and hearts.

A Mercury retrograde in the sign of communication is very easily navigated with the instatement of three key rules:
-- No. 1: Speak well of others or don't speak of them at all.
-- No. 2: Recognize the expectations that words set up and use them to lead others to ideas that will be useful to them.
-- No. 3: Treat other people's attention as...Read more
There are forms of communication that allow for undoing. It is possible to unsend on a Slack channel or Instagram message, but it is not possible to unsend what was spoken face to face, texted or emailed. An excellent match of medium to mood can be a saving grace this Mercury retrograde. Consider what to say twice then say it once.

The lunar move from the playful sign of Leo to the focused, efficient Virgo is like the bell that announces the end of recess. It's not a universal message. For some, the sound is an intrusion to fun; for others, a sweet relief, as socializing is, for them, more stressful than formal structures of education. So, what type are you?

The Leo moon rules this Mother's Day, a celebration of a commonality that goes beyond the human species. This tribute to the person who is, at best, a first friend in life, and at least the double-X chromosome contributing to our physical existence, falls under the behest of a moon in the sign of children, playfulness and theatrics.

As the moon moves from Cancer, the sign of mothers, into Leo, the sign of children, it will be most auspicious to solidify the plan and approach for Mother's Day. Whether you will be celebrating maternal energy, remembering ancestors or giving a nod to nurturers in general, goodness will thrive in the sunshine of gratitude and appreciation.
The Cancer moon would like to point out that it's a fine weekend for hosting. And while a main joy will be the company of others, a side perk is the way you see yourself and your home through the eyes of your guests. Other people are better mirrors than actual mirrors. We are all too familiar with our own visage to properly see ourselves.
The sun forms a conjunction with rebellious Uranus on this day of remembrance for the time a Mexican army was outnumbered yet prevailed with the victory in the Battle of Puebla of 1862. In the United States, the 5th of May is an opportunity to celebrate Mexican culture and heritage, in this case, under a patriotic Cancer moon.

Lunar squares abound, the cosmic strife throwing focus on unwanted thoughts and feelings. Negativity bias is a fact of human survival that has kept humans safe through the ages. Even so, we would often do better to focus on what it is we do want and keep reminding ourselves of it often. Tell yourself what to think and follow through. ...Read more
